Home' tried at the recent sittings, of the Supreme Court here. It will be remembered that the plaintiffs sued to recover the sum of from the defendants as the amount due under two agreements for the pur- chase of certain lands belonging to the plaintiffs in the south-east part of the city. The defence set up that as the plaintiffs had not an. absolute and clear title at'the time of the sale that the defendants were at liberty- to rescind tha agreements. jUr. Justice Scott holds 'that the right of a vendor to compel specific performance by the purchaser is not dependent upon his having an absolute title at the time of entering into the agreement to sell. It" Is sufficient to say that at that time he was in a position to compel" the delivery of the title to the purchaser at the time fixed for the completion of the purchase. He therefore holds that the plaintiffs are entitled to a judgment for specific performance and a direction that in default of pay- ment of the balance of the purchase money and interest within, a certain time that the agreements be rescind- ed, or at the option of the plaintiffs that the lands in the agreements be jiu. k A reference is to' to the clerk of the Court to tax the" plain- tiff's costs and to take an account of the amount of the purchase money Jue to the plaintiffs with interest aad o fix a date not less" than three months hence for the payment by the efendants of the sum found due with osts. a departure from the usual stereo-' to local option will be enacted.- Hotelmen Organizing tj-ped method of l of inch and a half wire wound hose at a cost of 5142 to be used in as- sisting in the packing of the sewer and water trenches when they are be- ing- filled in. He wanted a chain pipe cutter also. They were ordered. A DISPUTED BILL The City Engineer recommended that tbe John McDougall Co., the Caledonia Iron Works, be paid less that had been spent an re- pairs. The company was to be paid .in full for the parts of the pumps or- dered if they were up to the stand- ard, which, however, they were not. The secretary was instructed to cor- respond with the company to get a satisfactoey settlement. CONSTABLES MUST NOT KILL MEN Chief of police Gillespie submitted a report of the rules and orders given the police which were given to the li- cense and police committee He reported that he had accepted the resignation of E. 0. Fitzgerald from the force, and recommended the ap- pointment of Leslie Silliker at the same salary as he drew when in the force before. The council, adopted the whole report except that dt struck out a clause as exonerating a con. stable should he in arresting a per- cil decided to notify the C.P.R. oi the condition of the road, and to ask the city engineer to see that the hole is filled and the road made passable. Mr. Hunter will assume the tem- porary management of this farm until a suitable superintendent can be se- cured. A NEW TEAM Mayor Henderson introduced the subject of getting another team for the city. He said there was plenty j of this nature is bound to not only to of work for a team and they were attract additional capital but prove to being soaked for teaming in outsiders the earning power of Alberta We are pleased to see sales of this kind as Ohio is a good state to draw settlers from and development work the meantime. Aid. Adams and Hutton were asked to buy a team The former objected saying he had enough buying city teams. Consider able merriment was occasioned by re- counting the various faults of the team lately bought. TAXING AUTOMOBILES, ETC. Aid Ives brought up the question of taxing automobiles. he asked, "should autos be taxed and horses and rigs not The general feeling of the council was that the tax was ridiculous and it is likely that the court of revision will repeal all such assessments.

The city engineer's recommenda- tions to the city council last night were that the new force main be laid from pump house to the west end of Brunton street, easterly along London Road to Westminster Road, and north along Westminster Road to the posed site for the tank at the corner of Westminster Road and Courttan-i street. He proposed to use wood stavs pipe instead of cast iron from the west end of Brunton street to toe k thereby saving He ad- vses that lots be purchased r-o as to lave the tank off the street. By lay- ng the main along London Road a saving could be made as the could be used for distributing purpos- es for about four thousand feet, sav- ng thereby.

Chairman Fleetwood said that he had no kick on the lo- cation but wanted a coat of paint. The chairman of the works and property was delighted to have the building put in shape. At the same time Aid. Ives asked f the school board would give details of their estimates when presented. Mr. Fleetwood said that the council had no right to demand the, details as they have nothing more to do with the school board than to collect the taxes. The board is directly responsible to the people for their expenditure. Aid.

McKENZIE GOING TO FARM T. S. McKenzie, the local field man The change-coming on the heels of the enlargement of the small debts or- dinance and the appointment of fifty or more process issuers throughout the province is calculated to materially reduce the cost of litigation. The cost of subpoenaing witnesses will be much less. Hitherto if a witness at Atha- basca Landing was to be called the sheriff was permitted to charge mile- age to that point and return, all of which was added to the costs of the case.
