This was decided upon at a special meeting of the Council on Saturday night, at which the Mayor, Aid. Ivee, Cun- ningham, Adams and Hutton were present. The last named item has been, add- ed because the city has received no- tice from the Public Health Depart- ment of the "Government of Alberta Removal of Plant Settled Aid.

The meeting opened with the reading of a state- ment of tie items of expenditure that go to make up the requir- ed according- to the proposed bylaw. This statement is as follows: COST 1. That the Electric Plant (except supplies on good will and pre- sent site be offered to you for the sum of Supplies on hand at date of tak- ing over of plant be purchased at cost price S2.000.00.

To this must be ad'ded the interest at 6 per cent, which amounts to a year, making a total annual cost of about nineteen thousand dollars. This sum would of course be materially lessen- ed by the saving the city would make in using its sinking fund in- stead of borrowing money at a high- er rate of interest. After due discussion o" the finances, the aldermen all agreed that it will be a paying proposition, not only paying for itself but yielding a good profit to the city. Aid.

In the course of a strong sermon I him in a jail thereby telling him he on "Ye Are Not Your Own" at Wesley Church last night, Kev. W. A. Lewis, B.A., of Macleod made a startling statement the fact of which horrified the audience to think that such could be true. To illustrate his point that one is worse off'not to bt owned or cared for by some one, the speaker said that when he visited the Macleod jail last Sunday morning, he saw there in the cell next to the one previously occupied by one accused of the murder of Monte Lewis, boy only nine years of age, who had been sentenced to sixty days in jail by a magistrate in Pincher Creek for some offence. If he had not seen it he could not have believed such a thing possible in Canada, and in our own province of Alberta. The attention of the government should be called to the outrage and some provision made for such a one who evidently is a convict, a criminal, a jail-bird, he will believe you and be these things.' This statement by the preacher de- mands an investigation for it is generally expressed opinion that a magistrate that could send a nine- year-old child to the common jail for sixty days is not fit to hold po- sition.

Aid. Cunningham said that Aid. Ives' position is weil taken but he has forgotten that Mr. Smith's re- port is providing for a population of people. If the large expendi- ture can be deferred for a few years by the expenditure of a smaller am- ount now. it should be done.
