Thes are the outstanding features of tho report of the Fire, Water and Ligh Committee which was adopted by tho council at a special meeting on Sat urday evening. A set of regulations governing the brigade were also ap proved and adopted as submitted b> Chief Kroning through the commit- tee. Aid. Hatch, chairman of the Water and .Light Committee, had evidently .gone into the zoitter very thoroughly both by himself and with the chief, and had little trouble in persuading the rest of the council that the recommendations made.were in the interests of the city. He atrong- y advocated giving the fire chief M full powers over his department as the chief of police had over his, and put it up to. him to make good by giving the 'city the best possible fire protection. v Chief Kronmg's Report Since assuming office at the first of the month.

Both of Mr. Gale's sermons were of the foundation kind as he consid- ered that a-large portion of his au- dience had heard him for the first time. In his morning serrrivn befir comisg to his main subject, he sj of everybody being busy here said that the people could -iot pect a great work unless- m some sacrifice. His subject, was "Give 3ocl his text known passage in Mat. ye all the: tithes, He said -.hat people should give God; a cbanoo 'first, by; trusting Eim the responsi- bility.; for "being a Christian with a will; hy praying, and here he made a trite comment "the man who-pravs jnost in private, prays least in public and the man who prays fiftetn in public-: forgets to pray third, by waiting for prayers, to bcr answered las it takes God to answer prayers as it dies' to bring the harvest from the yf'e'd. entrusted to -His care; and, fourth, by yielding completely to Him. '.'If the men of Lethbridge yielded' thun- selves absolutely to a "might work' would; be done here: God v not do the work except thruigh u an Mr. Gale told the c >n Knox.

The .analogies drawn showed that a Christian shoulc be perfect, symmetrical, fragrant and common to all, also pure and hum- ble. The evangelist put up a strong plea for all round Christian man- hood. All people do not know what is lacking in their natures. The de- side is Godgiven but the method of trying to get satisfaction in life is often wrong. No satisfaction is to be found outside of Christ. Mr. Gale did not come to frighten people into turning to God by-preach- ing about Hell and the Judgment. He wanted to try to show women that the best thing she could be was a Christian queen in her own home and that the best life a man can live is that which is most like Christ, Mr Hatch in his evening address at, Wesley Church made a strong plea for clean men as workers He based his remarks on the incident when ing extension so that the- building would cost about and the-vo- tal expenditure in the North Vford about 'SSfOOO.

Fire Chief Kroning complained of The secretary-treasurer added that the inflammable matter in the back- Si, 750 had already been voted J or [yards alleys'. Aid. Hutton thought that the city should send a man and team to take away the stuff that had accumulated 'and then make the owners "keep, it clean. This was Humphries, the local agent looking up posible sites for the immigration hall. As to his particular business here, Mr. Walker said that he was here in he interests of the Department to ook for-.more suitable accommodation for the immigrants cOniiug to Leth- bridge. For some time it has been apparent that the present hall and and hard cash not less than 000. The figures already at hand in- dicate that this statement is extreme ly conservative as the stock and cash value of those who have already en tered is much over per head of immigrants. "As you are probably aware South- ern Alberta and the Lethbridge dis- trict especially are getting a full share of this business. Your crowded hotels, the constant and complete oc- cupation of the immigration hall and the difficulty of providing accommo- dation at night all speak for the pol- cy of advertising Canada beyond her >oundariea.

The council, was now ready for ac- ion and passed a motion authoriz- the hire four men at once, and others as he needed them, to order a chemical engine, ladder" and feet, of hose. The rules and regulations were also adopted. Fire Scuttltt Chief Kroning advised the amend- ing of the building by-law ordering fire scuttles to be built in every building with rooms in the basement so that it would be possible to put out a fire in a basement without go ing into it. It is provided in other cities. Fire Alarm System He also reported that the grading of the streets had.left the fire alarm boxes out of reach of the people. He had-had these lowered. Some of the boxes were in bad shape ana' the rest of: the system was in bad shape. Heavier wire was Supt." Reid explained that t the boxes were the-best on the market, but owing to of money ets, etc., for the firemen. And the Fifth report dealt, with rules and regulations, contract form, blanks or reports, medical ex- aminations, trials, resignations, etc. These rules and .regulations are the ame as in Edmonton, vand Aid. Hatch in recommending their adop- ion said that he thought Lethbridge ould well follow Edmonton "as he onsidered it had. the best equipped and host managed fire department ne ever saw. Chief Kroning was asked to give his views on the various matters be fore the council. The chief spoke of the need of having paid" men who would do what they were told, couM" be disciplined H occasion demanded and who would not quit when they got wet. He strongly advocated a chemical engine for the North Ward as experience showed that a chemical put out a very large proportion o fires and could well check a big fire until the steamer got there. The chemical should be light so as to get them quickly and be a "Johnny on the spot" piece of apparatus. The new chemical should have a .copper cylinder as a steel one corrodes and s dangerous. Aid. Hatch remarked that at pres- Christ called his disciples whe were "cleaning and mending" their nets. It is absolutely necessary, he said, for the fishers to have lives that were clean and whole if they expect- ed any aucceiss in bringing men to Christ. ent the protection given the' North Ward was useless. city and the mills and yards near he Westminster Crossing must be given adequate protection. Cost Revenue Mayor Henderson wanted to know what the cost would be as he thought he expenditure was more than the axes being paid by tho North Ward and he wanted information also re- garding the cost of operation. Aid. Hatch said thnt the cost new apparatus, team, etc.. outlined in the system had been put .in cheap. The batteries had played out and the power is supplied now by connecting with the city electric system. The system is all Bright-but the power Arrangement will Have to be chang- ed. It was.good at the time it was oustructed but is too small now. Theatre Chief Krohiug laid complaint, about the Eureka Theatre as not having sufficient exits, no protection where the machine is operated and inechanical -extinguishers. Messrs Morris and Thaten, the proprietors were present and the matter was fully gone into. They agreed to make any arrangements necessary, and explained that conditions would be better when the extension now under construction was completed. For 'the present Chief Kroniag agreed to have a fireman detailed or duty there each night. The pro- prietors will put in a water pipe and hose and fix the exits, aisles, ma- 'chine room to meet the requirements and under the chief's direction put in a perforated water pipe system over the new stage. They agreed with Aid. Hatch when -he said that it was in the interest of the pdblic and of the theatre that they should supported, by ..flr. Campbell. The old old question -of getting the pape consumed blew back into th .city was discussed for about an hou and the usual result reached. They do not know what is best to do bu will try something. i May or Henderson brought up matter which he haid had been brought to his attention by reading the Herald and that was the keepin of people off the'.boulevards. He thought that the -by-law should be amended to> provide for tion of people who .walk on them Secretary Robinson stated that En gineer Arnold was. having some amendments made, .now and .conic site were unsuitable in many respects being- difficult to get at, dark at night and hard to find; "On behalf of the Department, I have purchased the two lots on the comer of Cutbill and Ford Sts., op- posite the convent. It is proposed to remove the present building to the new site as it is a well-built building and in good condition. It will be put into a proper state of repair, .both inside and put and will be made pre- sentable and convenient. The work will be proceeded with at once and during the next few days, A. E.

Both 3oyle and his wife collapsed eomplete- y at hearing the sentence. When they were started back to jail, Boyle managed to walk with assistance down stairs. There he became limp and was lifted into the old fashioned omnibus and conveyed. When plac- ed upon the seat inside the bus nearly fell out. "He was utterly un- able' to sit up.
