McCallum gave notice that  at the next meeting he would ask  leave to introduce a mayor's remuneration bylaw and an aldermen's,  indemnity bylaw.  Mayor Acres and Aid. Harkness,  McCallum, McCabe, McDonald and  Schnitter were present at tbe regular  meeting of the city council on Monday evening.  The chairman of the finance committee recommended that the past  month's accounts be paid, and that  the tax collector be instructed to proceed with the collection of taxes and  fo accept a portion or all of any  taxes. The recommendations were  approved.  The chairman of the board of  works recommended that the old  sidewalk from Main street to Holy  Trinity church be renewed. The  report was accepted.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that the  committee had had a bell cast for  and installed at the West end fire  hall at a cost of $-10, and that the  roofs of the central and the West  end fire halls had been repaired.  He also reported that the water  pipe from the reservoir across the  iXorih Fork had been dislodged by  the current and would require to be  straightened out. The report' was  accepted.  TEe chairman of the water committee reported that he had interviewed the business men on the  street sprinkling question. All except one had expressed themselves  as being in favor of having ,the  Streets sprinkled twice daily at double the cost for one sprinkling. ' On  motion of Aid. McDondald ^and  McCabe, the council decided to have  two sprinklings done and to have  the cost charged up to the rate-  paj^ers. ���������  The matter of establishing a new  pound was left over till the next  meeting.  David   Woodhead  was  the  only  Ship Building in  The United States  The launching on the Fourth of  July of seventy-four American ves  sels aggregating 400,000 dead weight  tons is an achievement that brings  creditto the directors of tbe United'  States Emergency Fleet Corpoiation,  says the New Westminster Columbian. The output has exceeded expectation, which shows that the  United States is speeding up in the  new industry and that the immense  preparations made to meet the Hun  challenge in this line are beginning  to bear fruit.  There have, indeed, been enterprising plans laid for turning out  American ships. One shipbuilding  company alone is spending S200,-  000,000, or, as it has been said, two-  thirds of the cost of the Panama  canal. Early this year 235 yards  with 730 ways were under construe  tion, and the three great "fabricated  ship yards" will have between tham  alone as many as ninety ways in  operation.  For the fiscal  year   ending.  June  30,    1622    new   ships oi   1,480,793  gross tons have been   numbered   by  the United Stat.es bureau of  navigation, according to its   recent report.  This is more than double' the   output of German yards in peace times.  Great   Britain's   production for   the  year ending May 31 has been placed  at l,40(3,8o8 gross tons, or about 70  per cent of the normal output.     For  the   month   of   June 134,150 gross  tons of merchant shipping was completed in the United Kingdom yards  aud entered for service.  The estimated production of new  ships in the republic for the year  1916 has been placed at 3,000,000  tons dead weight. Iu March last Sir  Eric Geddes, first lord of the British  admiralty, gave the total allied and  neutral tonnage as 42,000,000.

Acquires  Fluorspar Mine  The Consolidated Mining������& Smelt  ing Company ot Trail ha,.-; required  the fluorspar property on the A'orth  Fork, near Lynchcieek, on a lease,  and, bond. Tne terms of the deal  have not been made public. The  property, which was located about  a year ago, Is owned by C. M. To-  bias'sen and Bert Averill, of this city,  and J. S.

In the meantime, however, Mr. Bailey succeded in interesting W. M. Archibald, representing the Consolidated Mining &  Smelting company, in the property,  and by this- means the most important mining deal made in the  Boundary in recent years was consummated.  The Consolidated company practically started development work  on the property yesterday.

Manning, director of the United  Sta.es bureau of mines, gave some  very interesting testimony covering  a large range, ol subjects relative to the sources and the uses of a  large number of the special minerals,  among which was chromite, locally  referred to as  ''chrome."  ��������� Mr. .Manning testimony with   ret'  erenoe to chio-inte whs:  ������������������'ChromiU: is used as the alloy  ferro chromium of special st-'e's for  high spetd tools, of automobile  axles and sprii.gs, iuoouioiive frames  and    springs, certain    p;ut.s   of   ore  The Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power company produced approximately . 44,000.000  -pounds of copper during the fiscal  year ending June, 30, according to a  New ..'York estimate. This is an increase over the 41,818,568 pounds  produced during the previous twelve  months.  Owing to the increased cost of labor and supplies it is expected that  there will tie a decrease in the earn  pigs for the fiscal year ending June  80 as compared with tbe previous  year.-  The average cost per, pound has  been estimated by a New York  broker at U-������ cents at Anyox and  21 cents at Fraud Forks on a market price of 23 cents. In Spokane  the figures are accepted as nearer 10  and ID cents respectively.  The estimate-.of the broker suggest-earnings of 64.320,000 or $28 a  rhnre, while the Spokane figur.s  give S0,22u,UUO or $34 a share.

A carload of  horses, machinery and supplies alao  arrived iu the city trom Trail earlier  in the week.  The o vuers are fortunate in getting sucn a progressing and well  known company interested in the  property. The advent of the Consolidated company into the .JN'orth  Fork country may be the means of  developing the mineral possibilities  of that district. If it does it will  mean much to Grand Forks.  The fluorspar showing on the  property is said to be greater than  on any other property on the continent, and the Consolidated company will, it is said, mstall a diamond drill and test the ore body.  Fluorspar is used extensively in  steel plants as a flux for the iron  ores and hydro-lluorio acid is also I  extracted from it. A percentage of | ailtl gooseberries  at least 85 per cent fluorine is required for steel plants, while a  higher percentage is needed for  smelter purposes.  armor plate aud cannon linings, it  is also used as a refractory lining for  metallurgical furnaces, and its various salts'are used in special leather  tanning processes, and for chemical  colors and dyes.

A reduction in the cost of operating is expected to result from the  installation of two converters and a  coking plant at Anyox and the open  lug up'*of a coal property on Vancouver island. The increase, from  23h cents to 20 cents in the price of  copper is expected to improve prospects for the coming fiscal year,  although most of the increase will  be absorbed by the increased freight  rales across the boundary.

Food production in France despite  the  efforts  of women, childen, old men and  cripples has dropped to one-third.  FRIDAY, JULY 12, 1918  .Reports from the United States wheat belt  are encouraging. This year's crop is estimated  to be 50 per cent larger than last-year. The  greatest acreage ever sown to wheat is officially reported, and by the June estimates the  crop will reach 950,000,000 bushels as com  pared with the record crop of 1,025,000,000  bushels in 191.5. The total wheat area to be  harvested this year is 58,881,000 acres, an increase of 12,600,000 acres over the preceding  year, compared to the average for the five-year  period preceding the war of 48,953,000. The  other grains also show a big increase. Despite  the big harvest, the food administration of the  United States is urging conservation to the  greatest possible degree, as every bushel will  be needed to save allied  Europe from famine.
