The strik- For People Who Want Water and Sewer and Are (From Tuesday's Daily.) There was a special meeting of the council, last night to receive the re- port of the special committee on the public square and other business. Those present were the Mayor, Aid. Ives, and Hutton. Among the other matters attended to was the prompt action with regard to a report of Gus Neidig, acting chief of the. fire brigade, who reported that certain .fire alarm boxes were not working rightv The boxes were not working, several could not be opened and the one at the brewery was not .connected. The mayor said that such a condition of affairs should not ex- ist and an order was giveii Mr. Nei- dig to have the engineering depart- ment attend to it last night. King's Appeal Refused Engineer Arnold made a statement regarding the application of D. King, for a refund of the cost of putting the sewer in his houses in Coutts St. Mr. King had asked him for the estimate and had been told that .it would be between and King told him to go ahead. The ac- tual cost was As the expenses did not exceed the estimate given him, the council did not see the ne- cessity of making any refund. Advertise the Proposition .C. B. Bowman's proposition for putting in the sewer to residences ot Mrs. White on Ford St., and Hatch Coons for sewer to residence in Block A., werp aproved. The mayor thought that the city should adver- tise the fact that the "city is willing to put in water or, sewer to any place if the people are willing to put up the cost, to be reimbursed when the number of connections .gives -the re- venue. Everybody should have the same show. The engineer made out a report to this effect which was order- ed. The council accepted an offer from Mrs. Fayne for the transfer of a tri-angular portion of Smith St. for a corner of a lot, so as to enable the city to extend London Road. The of- fer was the result of negotiations. The council accepted to offer of the transfer by which Mrs. Fayne is to get upon satisfactory delivery of title. No Reduction Made A. Bennett, of Calgary, did not get) any reduction on his assessment of j his part of the" Duff estate against which he appealed The .assessor re- ported that-it was the same as other property in similar locations." Chief Gillispie submitted an elab- orate'statement of finances bearing on the question 01 appointing a city po- lice magistrate. The report which gave figures as to magistrates, and constables' fees and fines, was refer- red to the license and police com- mittee for consideration-. A short discussion on the subject of a stipendary. magistrate followed. The general was it would be a good move to have one. Report on Metres Supt. Reid made .a report to the Fife, Light and Water Committee garding the installation Of electric metres and. wiring. He recommends that the wiring be done on the same principle as the motor servicej name- ly at.vthe owner's expense from the' lot'JIne, also that a-minimum me-j be per month in ad- dition to the metre rental. A- con- tiset should be made with some" elec- trician to instal all metres at a fixed charge and reported that McKenzie and Roy would do it for -This firm had. a tender in for the work at that figure. In comparing these recommenda- tions with the practice of the former Electric Co., Aid. Macbeth said that the company always paid for the in- stallation and that a minimum of per month was charged only when tfee house was left vacant. The report was, at the sugestion of Aid. Cunningham, left to the Fire, port. Aid. Macbeth-sugegsted" that the committee report on the advisa- bility of appointing of an inspector of .wiring. Board of Grant The secretary of the Board of Trade wrote asking for another thousand dollars being a part of the grant made by. the council. The motion was pas- sed ordering the treasurer to pay coming after the expended' by the city for the Board of Trade had been deducted. A Bill for Commission C. B. Bowman sent in a bill for being forfeit put "up for an option asked for by the city on certain lots upon which to place the new standpipe, and commis- sion. The city had got the option on the lots and after the transfer of property had been drawn up it was lound that they were unsuitable. The bargain was therefore rescinded. The council voted Mr. Bowman the amount he was out by the option deposit but' thought he should not receive the S37.50 commission from the purchaser even if they had bought the lots. Assessment Confirmed The local improvement assessment was confirmed, there being no ap- peals entered at the Court of Revis- ion held. Map of City At the suggestion of the secretary treasurer and the city engineer the council authorized the drafting of a new authentic city map under the ui-iection of the city engineer, A draughtsman will be sent to the Land Titles Office, Calg ary, and draw the map from the registered plans, more particularly of the newer subdivis- ions. By-laws Passed A by-law providing for the trans- fer of certain property' to "and from the A. "R. I- Co. for the extension of "Baroness Road to Westminster Road, was read a third time and pas- sed. A similar by-law regarding the streets and lames intersecting the hospital property received the final touches.

Thompson, in Boston Tran- script.) Well; these splendid people turn- ed out to near Laurier in the open even more astonishingly than did his French-Canadian Compatriots at Sorel last week. -They cheered him to the echo. They surely''dissipated the last shieds of the- curious of misunderstanding which has befog- ged his opponents into an imagina- tion that he is about to lose part of Parliamentary support in this Province. One of the possibly most significant spectacles of the affair was that .of an eminent Tory wearing a Laurier badge, which he took small pains to conceal from -shapshooters. Many other men who voted and work- ed, as I myself did, in the two latest Provincial elections, for Sir James Whitney, the local Premier, nominal- ly opposed to Laurier, were present and 'enthusiastic for the Federal Lib- eral chief. Such men belong to the important element that- really decid- es elections. They are adherents of no party, much less slaves of either. They are truly Independents. They might reasonably be described as the late Sir John Macdonald dubbed his party, a ti- tle that really did well signify his ag- gregation while he ruled it. It had not then fallen into narrow ways of intolerance, nor insensate devotion to a fantastic and quixotic central- izationist-imperialism which desires to place Canadian blood and money at the disposal of authorities whom Canadians do not elect.
