Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGBTWO ^THE LETHBRIDGI5 DAlLJIf HERALD THURSDAY, JANUARY 29th, 19U DEALERS MADE MISTAKE i/fed Fincher Creek Gets Money at Price Quoted-Sobs on the Dog Problem Pinchet Creek, Jau. 27.-The schi-d-lUed council meeting w as heki hero last night and for the first, lime this year a hiW attendance can bo voconi ed, Councillor Maiheson decoratuig his chair for the lirst time since his resignation iroTii the old council. The following accovnivs uere disposed lit in the tisual manner : Kxpres.s 30c. Kcho SF.tlO, stamps SlO.Oti, Westins-hoiise Co. S75..30, Cf. '\'oiiii�: Siri.oo, Jackson Bros. Jl.Oi', telepttone 15c., Kiclusrds $1.41. .\rter ,1 letter fron^. Biu\iic. appointing Pr.Connor at a salary oi SiCm. Councillor Williamson reported that the town could not locally borrow the $1000 oi^ered by Chas- H. Kettles, jr.. to be used ;vs an initial paymeui on the police reserve, unless a bylaw was put through. The finance , committee will worry along with this \ question till next meeting. Meanwhile Councillor Williamson said he would give notice oi introducing a bylaw as soon as he got a chance. Tlie new electric light bylaw Xo. til was tlieu given its tirst reading, and was the signal for the longest discussion oi the night. All weire agreed on one thing, that the electric plant vcasn't paying, but no one j agreed on the remedy. Cotmcillors i Scott and Mills thought a good deal of the trouble was that the electrician was getting too high wages. Councillor Kettles thought the largo consmner's rate siiould be raised to the same as the small, as it- wasn't fair to charge the small consumer more, thereby forcing him to pay some of the large consumer's share. Councillor Allison claimed that it cost more to install, for the same amount of current, ior small constim-ers than for. the large, and therefore he opined that the large consumer should get a cheaper rate, but right here he wanted one question-settled, and that vvas the one about the electrician's salary. Scott and Mills put a motion that applications be called for the position of electrician, applicants to state salary. Allison and Williamson made an athendment thaii the services of the present electrician be retained fot the year at S125 per month, as long as he Was saiisiactory. The amendment carried and the motion was lost, only Scott and Mills voting for it. .�imendments to the bylaw were then started on and when it got its second reading it had a flat rate of 17^ cents per kilowat hour with 20 per cent discount instead of a graded rate, besides sundry and other changes, such- as meters for town lights, etc. The dog bylaw No. 62 was then given its second reading and the clause relating to the licenses for dogs and bitches came in for criticism. Councillor Kettles spoke strongly against raising the tax on dogs, thougli he didn't know about bitches. He spoke at some length on this matter, ending up with the famous classic, Mary had a little lamb, but our boys can't eren have a dog. Needless to say, all eyes were filled with tears, and with choking sobs a motion to the ofiect that dog taxes retrain at $2 was put through, ,Scme more amendments are looked for at the next meeting. J. W, Harwood secured an option on the mill at $10,000 for 30 days, with coiiiraission at 5 per cent. Tender's for hauling coal from the Beauvis mines to the power house ware opened, and Fred Therriault secured the contract at $2.7') per ton, with bonds at $100. Councillor Williamson was responsible for the bringing up of the question regarding the secretary-treasurer's salary which had been laid over from the last meeting. He said he had spoken to Mr. Plunkett, who had offered to as.sume the duties of assessing in addition to his other work providing there were not too many changes. This was the chance for another long 'chew the rag". Cpun-cillor Scott tried t.o get a motion through calling ior applications for the position, but couldn't get a seconder. He claims to be able to get the work done for S80 per month. The motion that Mr. Plunkett be retained as secretary-treasurer and assessor at $100 per month only had one negative vote. Councillor Scott. The secretary will write a letter of thanks to the department of agricul-jture at Edmonton for the agricultur-i al school which was held here recent- Councillor Williamson gave notice that he would introduce a bylaw Jor the purpose oi borrowing monies i, purchase the police reserve. A detailed statement oi the inuni-I cipal building and sidewalk debenture.^ 1 was then read. Some more discussion I ensued, mostly in regard to one particular note which had been borrowed on the municipal account and part of -it used in payment ofi a sidewalk account. It was finally explained by the secretary to everybody's satiniac-tion and at 12.30 the meeting adjourned. 25 Words ,26 cents an Insartlun, 8 tntertlons for the pries of four Must be Paid iu Advance SITUATIONS VAC.U4T "iVANTEL--Men anu womjn to learn barber irsde; no experience necessary.
