A general discussion ensued, in the
course of which it was seen that the c
gas board must be given relief by coun- c
ell. If council passer, favorably on the i
request for advanced wages" at the gas \
works, an additional expenditure of 1
nearly $5,000 will be brought about for c
the present year. If the gas board is to t
grant all the street lights asked for by ]
councilmen, another dynamo must be
provided for the electric light plant at a t
cost of $4,500. Then there is the gas c
board overdraft, which the board can- c
not possibly be expected to lessen this z
i year unaided.
Mr. Chew said a way must be found
to help the gas board this year. lie was
in favor of paying the Increased wages
asked by the workers at the gas plant.

Mr. Pollock, of Hit} gas board, saiil it
would relieve the gas board if a five I
cent special levy were made tills year. j
After considerable discussion, Mr.
"VVuterhouso moved that council grant
thf? increased wages asked. i
In the course of the discussion, Mr. ]
Chew favored Mr. Pollock's proposition (
for a special tax levy, sutllcient to main
tain the electric light plant. He would ;
then decrease the price of gas to the
consumer to sixty cents net. By this )
arrangement the gas consumer would
be relieved from the burden of paying .
for lighting the streets. Mr. Chew's
i' amendment to this effect was passed, <
there being no opposition from any
member of the committee.

to get on a match with Eddie Gardner
at 124 pounds. If a sufficient guarantee
is offered they will met In Oscar

Story of a Slave.
To be bound hand and foot for years i
by the chains of disease Is the worst
form of slavery. George V. Williams,
j of Manchester, Mich., tells how such a 1
j slave was made free. He says: "My
wife has been so helpless for live years
| that the could not turn over In bed
I alone. After using- two bottles of Elec
| trie. lMtters, she Is wonderfully 1 improved
and able to do her own work."
This supreme remedy for female diseases
quickly cures nervousness, sleep|
lessness, melancholy, headache, bnckI
ache, fainting and dizzy spells. This
miracle working medicine Is a godsend to
weak, sickly, run down people. Every
