Hudson’s Bay Co. applied for a wholesale liquor license in connection with groceries. Refused (vote went 8-2) on the grounds that the current by-law did not permit it. One James Pollay asked to use City Hall on Tuesday afternoon to hold an “anti-Chinese meeting” and his request was granted. T.T. Black appointed City Auditor. Dr. Beckinsale sent in an account for $5.00 for “examining a lunatic.”
Among the expenses approved was a payment of $6.50 to David Gibb for the making of a coffin. Liquor Bylaw No. 5 was finalized and sent to the Gazette for publication.
Applications for Liquor Permits were referred to the License Commissioners. Alderman Balfour given two weeks’ leave.
