He found on searching the police re- law regardless :of the consequences': He .-claims forced against the" men as well as the women, and quoted the women as telling him. that .their best patrons were the'married men of this city, and not the unmarried, men He? Quoted the criminal code of 'Canada that the men were equallv guilty in the eyes of the law. He su- ited that the places be raided, and the men and women both arrested. cords that at the instance of the lic- ense commissioner fifteen arrests had been made for- selling liquor il- legally, and m fines And -costs paid out. but for the past year or two there had been no arrests' of -people for occupying the houses.

As a citizen, a .father and husband and as a pastor. Mr. Perry said he was seriously interested in this matter He did not believe "that anywhere there was a city where, if the author- ities went at it as they, should, that the vice could not -be reduced to very small proportions indeed. The most trivial arguments and reasons were put forth for allowing things as thev are.

"Taese been residents' of the city. j people were forced on said the mayor to him on Saturday. Mr. per- 'ry characterized thla excuse as unworthy of the mayor. No Compromise 4 Mr. Perry then .spoke of the'out- come of his interview .with Mavor Adams a few days after the dele-a- been residents of the city. Mr. Prosser stated that 'although they had foeen assured that no more houses would be allowed, one house iad been added to the number. One that was being built had been torn but another had gone up across the street. These were things that the speaker had found out from his own observation, and which he was to vouch for. one tion waited upon the council as giv- en above. He said'that in his con- versation with he had im me na.u, The speaker expressed the- belief Passed it upon the latter that there that the Mayor and the Chief of Po- was to no compromise but that lice were honest and sincere in their positions, but he did not think they the right to ask what the result had -be if is enforced. Their duty is to enforce fche law. If then the conditions are worse than before, the citizens will change the law. -He said that the city officials, whatever their motives might be, were remiss in their duty when they voted to leave the places alone. If, as they claim, the prostitutes will scatter all over the city if the segregated area is broken up, they will "DC arrested when the vice is practised. Citizens will assuredly protest when they come in- to their neighborhood, and the police will be notified. Drinking and car- ousing will assuredly be lessened. The Remedy "As to the remedy. Prosser re- iterated his .position that it is the duty of-the officials-to enforce the j- _ vuc tlXcik 11Q was willing to consider methods to overcome and eliminate the thing'that had fastened itself upon the life of the city. The mayor then had out- lined his ideas as TO what should be done. Mr.Perry had put it in black and white before him and -the mavOr had not repudiated it and do not believe he will, for be is an honest said the speaker. Reviews the Programme Speaking of the first-item of the mayor's programme, Mr. Perry said that the street had not been lighted but he could excuse that by the fact that the city was putting in. new light- ing system .and it might not be con- [the -drunken .ob'scene lan- guage and fighting'there'is-almost more than they can bear and certain- y .than .wrought. ask them to ft is- depreciating the value of their property to' say. nothing of the abomination of. the thing. With my own -eyes in broad daViigbt I saw an automobile filled 'with .drunken men go down Round St.-and turn down Redpath. Their' -loud brawling conversation '-was such that the men. women and "children' on the streets could nofhelp but know where they were going. The police Mi down in that The Second Plank Of the second plank in .the mayor's programme; had 'already spoken, but .Mr. Perry said thaj. mayor, and'council did not know'the number had increased, they- should have. The police must have known Who is running this city, I should like to asked the speaker the. harlots.and those who chase after them or the duly elected repre- sentatives of the The figures given by Mr. Prosser -were quoted as showing that -the policy- of discouragement had not been effectively put into operation Three months ago the chief of police informed the mayor there were ei-h- teen women, now Mr, Prosser says there are twenty-two. As to the fourth plank, Mr.- Pern- stated that he had' kept' closely in- formed on the matter, and he knows that since the mayor had made his promise that no prostitutes'would -be allowed to come in from other plac- es, not only had the number increased 'but the larger part of the colony had changed. Time to Break Silence "It is about three months since I talked with Mayor Adams and I bave kept quiet. r have remained loyal to the mayor and have put in a good word for the authorities. You-know what has taken place. Three months have gone and conditions are worse than they were. I therefore feel jus- tified in breaking silence. I believe Perry said that .if it were not possible to forbid the girls -working nese places there should' be some system.of registration so as to keep of them. The conditions 'mor- ally in some -Chinese Joints said to be shocking-. Rev. W. W. Bryden -Mr.'Bryden. pastor, of St Andrew's Presbyterian' Church m-a brief speech said that there could-, not be any com- promise in this matter which -is a detriment to the best interests of even.'' citizen. E. "M. Thomasson E. M. Thomasson before moving his resolution said that there was only one.'policy to, pursue, and that -was to accept the mayor's programme as there iS -no chance of getting any- thing better from the present coun- cil and then prepare to elect other men to the council who will fsr. ther. ten o'clock -Monday morning to the of police to close all the houses of ill-fame and that all the 'places would be closed inside of thirty days The place -for the women had been secured, said Mr. Prosser. and its doors are wide open for them How- ever, in view of the statements of Mr. Perry and their solution, he WlM.j iAli "JJJJJ- lieved that -it would better to carry out the resolution.

"I had suggested a constant patrol by night and a fre- PatroJ by said Mr. Per- ry, "but the mayor went farther." But I have it from people living oir the street leading to the district that ths mayor's programme would go long way. I-would, however, like TO make some additions to it' The Additions "I don't believe that more than one- third of -the prostitutes in the city are m the -restricted area. ,1 told the mayor yesterday that I believed that there were more outeidc- than there were inside area and hs did r contradict ine'' After speaking of -cases "that bad come-.under his own observation. Mr. Aid. Kinfl Will Take Action .Aid. King was greatly surprised to what the mayor had said as outlined by Mr. Perry. The matter had never been presented to the coun- cil. He expressed his belief, however, that Mayor Adams had privately sub- mitted it to the members of the .council and that they had turned it down flat and tha Jthat !was .the reason it was cot put into effect. Amid the applause of the Aid., King declared that at the next meeting of the council he would -ive notice of motion that the programme as outlined by the mayor .be put into effect if the mayor will support 'him Aid. King then took a crack at the daily paper for not getting after- this matter as .it did he gambling which was not as great an. evil. He called on the Herald to take up the case and publish the names of those who would come into the police court, He went further and said that if the police .would not take all the names down for publication, he would stand there himself .for a week and take down the names and have them pub- lished. A Guilty" Alderman The alderman created some sensa- by saying that he knew a man who was "prepared to swear that he was in -a house of ill-fame with one of the -city aldermen. Another Offer Before the meeting closed, Mr. Prosser stated that on Saturday the .mayor had promised him.that if the ministers would undertake to place the women of more tender years in some place where they would be cared for, be would assue an order at G-eneral Manager G. A. Goodell said to-day that retrenchment had been (necessary qn account of crop failure, but denied :that men would be laid off. Reports from along the 'line, however, are to the effect that the number of men laid off will even larger.

Macdonald cheques and was made out to and endorsed with the same name, Wm. Mackay, and bore the same forged signature of J. F. Bonnell1 proprietor of a livery barn on Dufferin street. He did not, however, this time got any money. Mr. Southard, who has a rule that all cheques before be- ing cashed in the store should be in- itialled by himself, had initialled this cneque, but on second thought decided to call up Mr. Bonnell >to make sure the cheque was 0.
