E. wrote the city council that he had ordered his gang of men to extend the team track five hundred feet, so that it. crossed Gait. St. He apol- ogized to the council for putting the track across Gait str >et without first t asking the permission of the council. He- hoped that the city would b.lirve him that' his object in extending the track was to give the merchants better shipping facilities. City Engin-cr Arnold submitted a sketch of a plan of spur tracks to the and Iron-Works, also an al- ternate'plan for the Smith St. spur, briaging the latter clown Wood St. so .as. to have all the spurs on the same switch. In committee, Aid. Cunningham pointed out the objections to the Wood St. route as b -ing expensive and im- practicable on account of the curves. He quoted the opinion of Engineer Mountain of the Railway Commission on the proposition when it was brought before that body. The Mayor's idea is to have the longer spur track so as to provide tram track accommodations. He would be satisfied to Jeave the Smith St. spur where it is if necessary. Af- ter a good deal of discussion the plans were filed for future reference.

All the sub-contractors have finishing gangs at work independent of the main dirt moving force and are doing as well as could hi "reasonably expected. "It is not possible to prosecute the finishing i-p all cases as rapidly as the dirt moving owing to the varia- tion in the yardage on different por- tions of the same or different streets. If the work was entirely uniform and no work is, it would practicable to expect finishing to be carried very closely up to. new work.

The former was out repair and it would be sometime before it would be in use again. He recom.'nded that the city purchase, as it is customary for corporations to do, a transit and a level for the city service. The cost would be about and respectively. The council thought the'suggestion a good one and ordered it done.

(From Tuesday's Daily.) At council meeting last-night, steps were taken to-provide a satis- factory day scavenging system for the city. The chief .of.police, the health officer, the solicitor and Mr. E. J. Cook of the Lethbridge Farming Co. had been talking matter over; with the result that the health officer presented a report that a contract be-signed with some party for the removal of the offal, both animal arid vegetable, from -within, th? congested part of the city, viz., that part bound- ed by Baroness EoadjGlyn St., Duff- erin St.. and Gait St. The solicitor had provided the council with a draft of the agreement to be signed and Mr. Cook was on hand to take Up the proposition. According to the proposed agreement, he will remove all the garbage from the defined area' and such other places as may request it for a certain sum of money to be determined. It is to be done in a way satisfactory to the health officer. The aldermen all' thought the scheme a very one. The however, had the idea that perhaps some of the hoiels or restaurants al- ready had contracts for tha removal of the garbage and that this monopoly would not be fair to the parties who were getting'it. Aid. Cunningham thought it good but that it did not go far enough, the whole city should be' included. Mr, Cook explained that this had been discussed with the health officer but that it had been considered too great an expense to-assume just now. Ke expressed a wilingness to remove the garbage from other places that required it. Finally it was left over for further lonsideration.
