II. Crealock, of Toronto, is spending the week with Mr. and Mrs. A. 33.. Orsborn. The largest sale of wheat in this district was transacted by Mr. Bu- chanan recently when ho'sold hushels, representing about f Mr. Buchanan has already delivered over bushels and has until next spring to deliver the balance. A matched foot race was contested here on Saturday afternoon between It was twenty-five minutes to ten before the Council got down to the reading of the minutes at the meeting last night. All sorts of deputations waited oh the Council arid took up an hour and a half of the Council's time. The members present were Mayor Henderson, Aid. Ives, Hutton and Macbeth. A. CarrutherS; Co. applied for permission to have a spur track built to their building. Their plans will be considered by the city engineer when submitted, No Ont Storey Buildings The city engineer recommended that the Standard Land Co. be al- lowed to erect a single storey brick structure facing Round St., providing the walls were built suitable for an additional storey. He also that he had had two other such ap- plications. Aid. Ives maintained Terway, the long-distance runner, ofj Maclcod and Briette, of this town. The distance was a quarter of a mile the purse being and side bets. Briette won easily, making the quar- ter in 55 'Seconds. The Misses McCrea, of Macleod, are the guests of their sister, Mrs. Thos. Scott. Mrs. Campbell of Nanton, is the guest of her brother, Mr. .1. W. Breck enridgc. Mr. J. H. Jackson, of Regina, ar- rived in town on Sunday morning. Mr. Jackson has been engaged by Mr.K, emmis. Jacob Smith, aged thirteen years, was up before Inspector Belcher on Monday afternoon charged with steal- ing mail from, the post office hero. The young lad pleaded guilty and In- spector Belcher, taking into consider- ation his age and the fact that his father and brother are at present serving time in the Macleod guard- room, gave him a severe reprimand and let him out on suspended sen-, tence. Mrs. Smith is in destitute circumstances and the Inspector ad- vised young Smith to do what he could to help his mother. 7 On Thursday'evening last a meet- ing was held in the Council Chamber to consider the feasibility and ar- range for a series of inter-denomina- tional debates. The pastors of the several churches and representatives of the congregations were present. Rev. W. W. Atchison was elected chairman and Q, B. Milbery .secretary Rev. Finlay made a few remarks in which he said he thought it would be of great benefit to the young people of town to have the debates. Inas- much as the Baptist and Methodist Churches were ready and-willing in a friendly way to engage in debate, it was decided that a debate should, be held on Tuesday, 15. The con- testants will choose the subject, se- lect the judges and make arrange- ments as to time allotted to speak- ers. A banquet was held in the interests of the above movement in the Mason- ic Hall last Friday night, when up- wards of one hundred of the business men of Pincher Creek sat down to a fine spread prepared by the ladies of the town. This great movement started in New York, a little less than two years ago and has spread to nil central points on the contin- ent. The inauguration is usually started with a banquet at which men who are" inclined with the spirit of the movement speak, telling how it has taken hold of business ev- erywhere. Mr. Unclarwood, of Cal- gary, was the firs', speaker nrd he told of the things t.hat might accomplished this while Mr. Humphries, also of ry, gave a history of the Laymen's Missionary Movement. Several local men also spoke. A committee was ap- pointed to discuss the best way of forming a society in- Pincher Creek. that it could not be allowed as the building by-law required two storey buildings facing the street. The Mayor held that a permit could be taken; out for a two-story building and have only one storey completed. Aid. Ives characterized this as quib- bling at the law. The engineer called attention to the .clouse by which the building permit lapses if not fulfilled in a certain time.' The application of the Standard Land Co. was no granted as the proposed. building does not comply with the building' by-law. Chief Gillespie reported tliat he had engaged Constable Stirling in the place of Constable Cribb, resigned. The Council agreed and ordered the purchasing agent to get- a uniform for the new cop. Grant to Hospital City Solicitor Conybeare in a letter expressed his doubts as to the legal- ity of the proposed grant of for the new hospital upon the condi- tions attached and said that as long Report on the-Police As usual, .Chief Gillespie presented full report of the work of the police during the mouth. The amount of hies collected was much larger than usual and the number of cases tried showed commendable diligence on the ?art of the force. In the point dealing with his ef- fort to bring a certain party to justice or building a ill-fame and conspiring to bribe the police, Chief Gillespie remarked that lie had sought the advice of a friendly solicitor in the matter. Aid. Ives asked why the chief sought the advice of another solicitor instead of the city solicitor. The chief's attention will be called to the fact that the city solicitor is the man for him to go to for advice in all cases as he is paid to give such ad- vice and assistance. Insurance Policies C.

Ives said that the only thing to do was to get the Legislature to ra- tify the by-law next session if it passed the vote of the people. This would remove all doubts as .to the grant or the debentures being legal. Special Rate for Light McKeuzie Roy applied for a spe- cial rate on-electric light in view of the fact that every light they put in means more business for the city The-Council regretted that it was un- able to grant the request. The City E. TJ. Rylands, manager of the Hudson's Bay Co., complained of the inaccuracy of the city scales and also that the weigh master takes the driv ers weight for the weight of the emp- ty waggon. The 'Mayor said that the new scale would be in readiness inside of i week. Aid. Hutton said there was a bij kick over the .way the weighmaste was not attending to his duty. Som men have had to wait for an hour be- fore they could get weighed. Mr. Rylands will be advised that the new scales wil be ready in the course of a few daya. A New Street A. J. Viner and others offered to give thc land necessary to open up a street through Block 1 of the Duff addition. Their offer was. accepted. Superintendent Against Supt. Reid reported against build- ing an electric light line in North Ward in the district west of Westmin- ster Road, as the revenue would not warrant the expenditure of on the plant by the Electric Co. Aid. Ives objected to having any of the insurance placed with men who were not regular insurance agents and hence policies placed fin the elec- tric plant through M. Barford and C. F. P. Conybeare will be re- placed by others. Here the Mayor took occasion to emark that he wanted to have an ac- ident policy carried for every civic mployee. The Workmen's Compcn- iation Act'would soon come into force and 'the city should protect itself from lability. Willing to Lecture Prof. W. Muir Edwards, professor Applied Science of the Provincial University wrote that he was prepar- 'd to give a few lectures throughout he province on matters of interest o municipalities, such as power, sewerage, etc. The secretary-treasur- er will write for-further particulars ind probably get the professor to de- liver one or more addresses here. Exemption Solicitor Conybeare gave an opin- ion adverse to the granting of tax exemption on the new Knox Church property. The Council did not grant the request. To Elect Three Trustees The secretary of the School Board notified the Council that it will be necessary to hold an election for three trustees. A. E.
