W.L.WILSON AUCTIONEER Phone 585 CITY COUNCIL ROUTINE BUSINESS Abolish Barbed Wire Fences-That Old Mag- azine Formaldehyde Matter Explained-Industrial Sites Spur Track By-Law Passed 7. There was comparatively little 'business on the table at the regular session of the cir.y council last night and probably the longest order of business was the reading the minutes of the last regular and five or six intervening special meetings, which occupied almost a quarter of the whole time, two hours, that the meeting last- ed. It was quite a change for the aldermen to hear the motion to ad- journ read at teu o'clock, and so they found time to hold a meeting of the license and police committee before leaving the council chambers. The i mayor and all the aldermen, with the exception of Aid. Oliver, were pres- ent. Hans Matson on oehalf of himself and other owners of property on Ern- est street between Dufferin and Red- path asked the council when water and other improvements would be put through their street. He was told i that Ernest street on this year'E j program for the improvements alhul- I ed to, but'that if they could-not be [put in until the street had been grad- Jed, which would soon be done now that rhe tenders for that work had been awarded. i Aid. Bowman as cnainuan of tiie j finance committee reported in favor of adopting the suggestion made by the Bank of Montreal that in view of the number of foreigners employ- ed by the city, it waive the require- ment that all pay cheques be endors- ed by the payee before can. re- ceive payment. The C. P. R. and A. R. I. Co., Ellison Mills and other large employers had all waived the requirement and the city was amply protected if the paymaster be instruct- ed to see that all employees sign a receipt when they are paid. The re- j port was adopted and the paymaster instructed to Me that the proper man signed che roll for the amount due them. Barbed Wire Must Go Aid. Frayue moved that the erec- tion of barbed'wire fences within tin-, city limits' be that all property owners having, barbed wire upon their land be given six months in which to remove it. Some of the aldermen were under the impression that somawhere among the bylaws was one covering barned wire fences. Someone suggested referring the mat- ter to the chief of police as a certain means of ascertaining whether there was such a clause In any bylaw and if there was not, a bylaw could then be passed. The chief will look after the matter. Auditors Report Everything O. K. W. A. Henderson and Co., the city auditors, reported that they had com- pleted the audit for the last quarter and after checking all vouchers, books and cheques, found everything in or- der and correct. They enclosed their bill for The report -was receiv- ed and the account ordered paid. A number of appeals against the city assessment, having come in late, were laid before the council accom- panied by notes by the assessor. The mayor and secretary-treasurer 0 In Thirty If You Buy Kootenay Lea day at 25c. Price will The wealthy men of the world have amassed their fortunes through development of natural resources. Very few become inde- pendent through savings from manual labor or the profits from a small commercial enterprise: a comfortable living and a small com- petency for old age is really all that accrues from such efforts and endeavors. Such rapid progress is being made today in -the opening up and advancmeat of the resources of the Western Province that unless yon are familiar with the conditions as they now exist and have observed closely the great developments, it will not be possible for you to fully appreciate at the moment the wonderful wealth of, for instance, the Kootenay country, and in particular .the Ainsworth Mining District, prominently situated in which are the six silver- lead mining claims, includug the famous Highland Mine, owned and operated by the Kootenay Silver Lead Mines, Limited, a corpor- ation doing business under a charter issued by the Provincial Government at Victoria, B. C. The property controlled by this Company is approximately 250 acres, and is situate 20 miles from Nelson, B. C., on the Kootenay Lake. Among the improvements on the property is a 200 ton a day mill, which is right on the water's edge and in consequence thereof can load ore direct into boats, which boats convey it to the Trail smelter. Five thousand feet of tunnelling has been put into the property. The mine is equipped with a Canadian Rand Air Com- pressor of the latest type and is equipped throughout with pipes for air. An aerial tramway conveys the ore from the mines to the mill at a minimum expense. So economically may the mine be worked that the shareholders may expect handsome annual rtiyidends. Never before have the public been offered such a proposition embracing such a promise of early profit. In the year 1904 the famous Highland Mine, one of the six claims owned and operated by this Company alone shipped a greater quantity of lead ore than any other mine in property not a prospect, but a authorized to attend to them as'tho city charter provided. City Has No Say Peter Bardett wrote asking the conn oil not to allow Ford street west of .Mucleod street to be closed as it Tvould shut him off from the city. It .vy'as decided that the matter rested entirely with the A. H. there- never had been a roadway oil the con- tinuation of Ford street west of .Mac- leod street. Mr. Harriett's letter was received aud filed. The city solicitor submitted a deed of transfer from; :he city to the Gait hospital of a portion of Bompas St. west, it was ordered signed and de- livered by the mayor to the secretary- treasurer. That Magazine Advt. The publishers of an Eng- lish publication, wrote ugqiti enclos- ing an account for alleged to b'_- due for advertising." The matter'hav- ing been referred to tlie city solicit- or some months ago and he having passed the opinion that '.he ciiy was not liable, the account was merely received and filed. City Engineer Arnold wrote recom- mending that the Ooininlcn mental Farm be granted permission :o connect up with the water main running to the Provincial jail build ing, that the Experimental in all the costs of c.-nnecrions and of meter, and that it be ch.ii'se-sl for water at the rate of forty cents pe 1000 gallons, all of course on the un- derstanding that the necessary ar- rangements had been made with the provincial government for the use of its imain. There was some discus- sion, as to -whether the city should sell the -water or the provincial gov- ernment and the conclusion was ar- rived at that there were many fine points which might mean much to the city, and it was decided'to leave matter in abeyance for the time being. Chief tc Attend Convention The secretary of the Western Can- ada Fire Convention to be held at Winnipeg in July, wrote Baying that Leth-bridge was entitled to representa- tion and 'hoping city would instruct its fire chief to attend. Fire Chief Kilkenny was- instructed to take it in. Purchasing Agent Weller wrote ask- ing the city to dispose of two long outstanding accounts, one for J100 from Gue Neldig for park benches supplied the and the other for 147.45 for iron braces attached to che benches by L. H. Fowler and Co.. blacksmiths. The trouble appeared to be that the benches and braces were purchased last year without an order going through. Gus Neidig's original offer agreeing to sell forty- five benches to the city, painted, for was read, and as only thirty- eight were delivered it was decided to pay him for those at the rate of each, the rate at which the forty- five worked out at. That amounted to and it and L. H. Fowler and Co.'s account were ordered paid.

At that time they had been buying their ormaldehyde from J. D. Higinbotham ud Co. and Dr. Campbell suggested hat the other druggists be given an pportunity to supply some of it, con equen'tly he hud placed an order else- rhere. When the bill for the first apply came in it was charged either eu or iifteen cents a gallon more ban had been paid to J. D. Hlgin- botham. He Chen told the other drug- gist that unless he supplied it at the same price they would have to ob- tain their supply elsewhere. Soon ifter that the purchasing agent com- menced to procure the formaldehyde ind he (Inspector Vallance) knew no more about it. Aid. Sage said he was quite satis- fied Mr. Vallance was not to blame, lie simply claimed that local firms should be allowed to tender on the supply before it was purchased out of the city. Mr. Vullance's report was and-filed. Accounts Paid The report of the finance commit- tee recommending the payment of a number. of accounts totalling (J47.G2 was adopted and the accounts ordered paid.

It is results that count; the already put in on fhe property exposes tons of ore. The mill which is connected with the mine by an aerial -tram capable of handling 300 tons of ore per day with two men in charge has an output capacity of 200 tons per day. It is one of the best equipped concentrate mills in Canada. There are over 500 tons of ore in -the bins at the mine. property is ?2S.OO, exclusive of a Government, bonus, which amounts to per ton; :n all a gross value of ?37.00 per- ton.

The received from the sale of shares are for the purpose of improving and increasing the plant and equipment of the mines thereby making it possible to turn out and ship larger quantities of ore per day.

The Kootenay Silver-Lead Mines, Aid, Frayne moved that the street department and city's weed inspector "be instructed to go after all noxious weeds in the city. Aid. Sage Made No Charge The formaldehyde matter which came Uy at .previous meeting and was laid on the table, was taken up. Sanitary Inspector Vallance was pres- ent and his letter to the council was re-read. Aid. Sage at the outset re- marked that when he had first spok- en about the matter some of the ald- ermen had stated that he was making a. charge. He had simply recounted "what had lead up to the purchasing of the city'g supply of formaldehyde from Calgary without local merchants having the opportunity to tender for It A reason for that was all that he had asked for. There was no charge about that. No answer, how- ever, to his question was contained in Inspector Vallance's report and that was why he had asked that It be laid on the table until Mr. Vallance could appear. Aid. Frayne said that from the let- ter k did not appear that Inspector Vallance had anything to do with the purchasing of the disinfectant outside of the city. If anybody had anything to do with it, it was the storekeeper. Aid. King said that the whole mat- ter appeared to be a misunderstand- ing. He thought that Mr. Valtence be asked to tell his side of it, it would be cleared up. Inspector Vallance said that he had had nothing to do with it. When he first came to the city there was no purchasing agent. He had been In- troduced to Dr. Campbell, the acting My Men's Outfitting Business has become noted in Lethbridge for its up-to-date stock and for the exceptional values given.
