As to previous work as Magistrate, he cited the facts that while in. that position he had tried about thirteen hundred cases and had. had only three appeals against his decisions, two of these having been decided his way. He ottered to as- sume the duties for a month. Aid. Ives pointed out that to hold the position a man must have been a practicing lawyer for at least three years ano? as the powers are almost as great as those of a District Judge ho ought to a practical, profes- sional experience at law. With re- gard to the application he moved: That the application of A. E. Hum- phries for police magistrate be receiv cd and that Jfr. Humphries be advis- ed of the council's appreciation of his services but that in its opinion the time has come when the needs of the city require the services of a po- lice magistrate and his added jurisdic tion and that 'as Mr. Humphries can- not qualify under the Ordinance the Council is unable to consider his ap- lication.- TO PUNISH PARTIES Winnipeg, only possible steps tjiat the Manitoba Government will; reference o the recent opilc: oil explosion which caused deaths lately, lave been taken by Attorney General ampboll, when he despatched a tel- 'gram this morning to the Minister of Inland Revenue, offering assist- ance and co-operation in ascertaining v.ho the guilty parties are and Iiav- them punished.
