The first public debate on thestreet railway issue was held last night in the Young Men's Club and was large- ly attended by both members of the club and citizens interested in the matter. Messrs. McLelland and Mac- Lean upheld the granting, of the fran- chise, while Messrs. Cope and Broad- ley opposed it. 0. D. Austin, the president of the club, occupied the chair, and Messrs. W. C. Simmons, W. C. Ives and W. D. L. Hardie acted as judges in the debate. The verdict was returned in favor of the negative by a very close mar- gin. W. H. McLelland, the first speaker for the affirmative, held that the proposition was being inaugurated by men who had been of service to the city, and who.-deserved a chance to continue that work! The agreement was very fair to the city. The oppo- sition to the scheme on the grounds of other railways not being allowed to enter the city did not hold? They could -expect no better terms if' the .j.city owned the railway. MR. BUSINESS MAN. Do you wish to dispose of your business? Or do you require more help to carry it on?

The time far 'the -drawing' of out- j side business to the city, was now and the city was not now" in a "posi- tion to build such lines. He dwelt on. [the value of the railway as an ad- vertisement to the city. B. L. Cope, the leader of the nega- tive, objected to the route of the proposed railway in the city. He stated that the company should be required. to put'up a deposit as they were not bound to exercise the fran- chise at once.' R. M. Maclean, for the affirmative, thought that the necessary expendi- ture of the city in municipal im- provements in. the next few years would prevent- its considering the building of a railway. The revenue the city would derive from this was considerable and not to j-be despised. i G-co.
