Winter wheat scssment was equitable with adjoin- ing property and where it was not the court promised to revise it. A number of the applicants while claim- ing they were assessed too high, ad milted that they would not sell for the price of the value named. The following arc the appeals dis- posed of this morning: George Alexander, lots 12, 13 block land value and S1250 for The City Council Post- pones Action Till December That, although the council has per- haps been for some time inactive in regard to the matter of the much mooted commission government ques- tion, the individually Have W. Mathews and W. Alexander of North Lethbridge waiced on the city council last evening and asked that the cement walks to be put down on Westminster Road north of the tracks be made ten feet or less instead of twelve as was the council's intention and plans. Their chief claim was that the street was narrow and twelve foot walks on either side would leave little room for road travel.

They wanted it for carrying out cer- tain extensions to their plant. They offered in return for the deed a strip of ten feet on the other side of the brewery to widen a very narrow lane. much kicking about It so far however, F.

Oliver, Hatch and a road way to give access to some I property they ownea to the south of the cemetery. Aid. Bowman moved tbat the city sell to the Lowes and Hatch firms the strip asked at the same rate as the city paid for the pro- perty. Aid. Hatch poiuled out that the property had no means of access ex- cept through the cemetery. Aid. Oliver and Frayne, who both had been out oxrer the ground, thought it a fair proposition to give the strip as evening when the matter was again precipitated by a motion offer- ed by.. AhL. king, reading, "That this council advertise at once for two commissioners." The 'council apparently came to the conclusion that real government .by commission is not obtained by ap- .pointing one. or two commissioners who arc responsible to 'the council, but that the commissioners.shall, be elected by-the people, be responsible every 1 building. Assessment confirmed. J. M. Harper, Kamloops, lots 1-3, block IB, land value and assessment.

The mayor replied iliat he knew noth- ing about it except that the minimum wage for laborers was that provided for in the schedule submitted to the council by the Trades and Labor Council at the beginning of the year Mr. Ritchie seemed hard to convince until assured by Aid.

The local branch of the Bank of Montreal wrote stating that great diffi- culty was experienced identifying the signatures on the back of May pay cheques of city laborers, and asked for similar authority to that given them by the C. P. R. and A. R. who employ large numbers of foreign- ers, namely to authorize them to pay out on the checks without endorsa- tion. Aid. Hatch pointed out that em- ployees would not he protected by this system in case they should loose their cheques, and a motion was passed re- if not entirely, take the place oi the council. For it turned down the mo- lion of Aid. King and adopted an amendment made by Aid. Sage to the j effect that the election of com mis- sioners until the DC- j ceinbcr elections, and that the city] solicitor or any other man or.'body j of men thought best, be instructed to prepare the necessary application to J the legislature for the election oi the j commissioners by the ratepayers. j When Aid. King's motion was read it. aroused little enthusiasm. Aid. 1 Hatch remarked that he did not be- lieve that satisfactory commissioners could be obtained by They had tried privately to get hold of men who would take the job but without success. He thought they had best postpone it and put it'up i to the people to say whether they wanted a cntmcne or not, and if they din, Id thrm elect their own commissioners and at midnight commissioners still unready for a vote, and the matter went over to another day. Church un- ion is scheduled for noon. The assembly decided on Knoic church Ottawa, as the place of next year's meeting. At the opening of the afternoon sion it was decided that the assem- bly should adjourn at four o'clock to join in a trip on Halifax Harbor.: As" a result it was decided that the pro- gramme for the evening meeting should be changed and' that the en- tire night session should be given up to the discussion of the Queens University case in the hope that a settlement might be reached. The question of the establishment of a theological college in Edmonton was introduced by an overture from the Synod of Alberta. The proposi- tion is to erect a residence and hall in conjunction with the provincial university and to begin the work of teaching in the hall during the pres- ent year. The question was referred to a large committee of which all the rep- resentatives from Alberta; arc mem- bers. A letter from premier G. II. Murray was read replying to a com- munication from the assembly. Pre- mier Murray, is confined to bed in.the, hospital seriously .ill and the letter received by the assembly was ihe first sent out by. him in a long.period. Continuing the discussion of the Queen's question Richard Lees of Pet- erborough, a graduate of Queen's, strongly opposed the proposition of a ciiangc. Referring to the argument that this change would enable the 'Queens to share "in the benefits of the Carnegie Pension Fiind Mr Lees claimed that the benefit of this fund had been greatly over esti- mated, and that .the cash-value .would not exceed There were al- so objectionable features in connec- tion with this fund. The trustees ol the fund interfered -with the internal management of the colleges, and cer- UUn American institutions. which. were'cligihle to share in the fund re- fused to do so for this reason. .With j reference to the argument; that younjr J men of the other denomination re- fused to attend Queens owing to the fact that- it was a. Presbyterian, in-, stitution, Mr. Lees stated that there tlie the, were sent to this university on very ground that it, was under direction of a religious body. Catholics had stated lo him while they would prefer to send sons_to a Roman Catholic college they would sooner send them to advertising. t Qumis, RS a than to send them to a national uni- versity. Dr. Daniel Gordon, principal of the I ferring the matter to the finance com- university, made an eloquent plea for separation going over the grounds commission torm ot gov- 0 uilly.
