Harkness,  McArdle, McCallum,Schnitter and  Webster were present at the regular  meeting of the- city on Monday  evening. f-  * A communication was received  from the Rosstand coty council requesting the Grand Forks council  to endorse a resolution urging the  federal and provincial governments  to use their good offices in effecting  a settlement of coal miners' strike  in the .Crow's Nest, and also to  make an inquiry into the high cost  living. On motion of Aid. McCallum and McArdle.the mayor and the  'Ti'city clerk were appointed a committee to draft a similar resolution and  to forward copies of it to our members at Ottawa and Victoria.  H. Miller made application for  the extenaion of the waterworks system to his residence in the West  end. The request was granted,  provideda one-inch pipe wouid be  satisfactory to the applicant.  Aid. Sheads was granted a three  'month's' leave of absence,; and ' Aldr  McArdle was elected   chairman  pro  .em. of the finance committee.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that there  vva6 considerable wastage of water,  caused by leaking tanks in the C.P.  R. yard, and that he had notified  tbe local agent of this fact. A letter  from Mr. Garrett stated that he had  taken the matter up with the divisional officials and that he hoped  tbe tanks would be repaired 60on.  The city assessor .submitted the  assessment roll, which was accepted,  and tbe court of revision was set  for June 26, at 2 o'clock in the  afternoon. The members comprising the court are Mayor Acres, Aid.  Harkness, McCallum, Schnitter and  Webster.  The chairman of tbe board of  works reported that he had interviewed Dr. Kingson, who had  promised to put in a fire escape in  the rear of the Grand Forks hospital; and that he had given Mr. Tea-  bo permission to construct a sidewalk in front of his residence from  the material of an old walk in the  West end. The report was accepted.  The chairman of the parks and  cemetery committee reported that  shade trees had been planted on  Winnipeg avenue, aad that addi  tional water pipe had been laid in  the cemetery. He recommended  that tbe two acres which tbe city  owns at the pump Btation he cleared  of underbrush and the grounds  used as a public park in future. A  long discussion ensued on this proposition. Aid. Schnitter and some  of the other members opposed the  acheme on the grounds that the land  is right at the intake of city waterworks system, and that the park  would be used as ������ public bathing  place, thus   endangering the bt-ulth  deferred until further information is  obtained on the subject.  AJd. Harkness reported that complaint had been made by some people in the West end because certain  parties allowed tbeir poultry to run  at large, thus ruining their gardens.  The clerk was requested to instruct  the'pondkeeper to euforcethe pond  bylaw.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that tbe  premises at the Chinese laundry bad  been put in sanitary condition; that  the city patient in the Grand Forks  hospital had recovered sufficiently  to be removed to her home, and that  Mrs R. Fracbe's properity on Fourth  street.was in an unsanity condition.  The past mouth's accumulation of  bills were.ordered to be paid.  A'resolution was adopted instruct  ing the city clerk to follow the street  sprinkling bylaw by collecting street  sprinkling fees monthly.  Aid. McArdle was granted leave  to introduce a bylaw amending the  fire limits bylaw. It was advanced  to the third reading stage.  NO HIM  Bllili SES  Charges of Irregularities re  Soldiers'Vote Will Be  Investigated  RECEPTION TO A  SOLDIER FROM FRANCE  Lieut. Don McQuarrie, who, prior  to going overseas, was stationed in  Grand Forks for a number of  months,', arrived jn the city on the  noon train on Monday last from  Nelson. In the evening a public  reception was tendered him in the  JDavJs ball, and; .nearly- all of our  citizens availed them of this, opportunity to "shake bands with the gallant soldier. A pleasing program,  consisting of short speeches, vocal  and instrumental music, and recitations, was rendered, and light refreshment were served. Lieut. McQuarrie intends to return to tbe  front as soon as he recovers from  his wounnds.  DEATH OF A GRAND __  FORKS PIONEER  Nels Larsen, a pioneer prospector  and miner of this city, died at his  home on Second street on Monday  afternoon, and the funeral was beld  at 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, interment being made in  Evergreen cemetery. Deceased was  77 yeais of age at his last birthday.  He was a native of Denmark, and  fought against the Germans and  Austrians in 1864. He has been a  a resident of Grand Forks since the  birth of the city, and of late years  has been employed at the Granby  smelter, where he lost an arm about  four years ago. He is .survived by  his widow.  To Much Money  Apropos of a recent decision of  the French authorities to increase  the pay of French soldiers serving  in the trenches from 25 centimes  to one franc a day, a story is recalled. In October, 1915. the Freuch  soldier'8 pay was raised from u centimes a day to 25, and a poihi, on  being asked bow he liked his raise,  replied simply, "I don't like it  much; people will now f:all us mercenaries  it  Last Snnday was a fino HHixiixmr  day, and a number of Grand Forks  citizen k   marie  an sitternpt  to open  Victoria,May 16.-���������Premier Brew  ster announced tonight,that there  would be no prohibition bill this  session, but that an inquiry would  be held into the charges of irregu  larities of the soldiers' vote overseas  and a special session called not later  than August 15 to consider the report of the investigating commission  If tbe majority of 822 against prohibition: is wiped out a&>a' result of  the inquiry, prohibition will be  made effective October 1. He  brought down a proposal1 in the  for__f of a resolution asking the lieutenant governor to send down a message providing for the appointment  of a commission of inquiry.  He said it ������������������was the intention of  the government to preserve the  "sanctity of the ballot," and he^re-  ferred to the conflicting claims of  the "dry." and the "wets" .as..'to the  legality of the voting overseas, recounting the charges that bad bern  made and the allegations that had  made in reply.  Healsoreifd ixiessages which had  passed between the government and  tbe agent general iu connection with  instruction from this government for  an inquiry and with a decision of  Sir John Simon that all votes should  be counted. Among these were the  alleged repeaters, about which there  is a conflict of testimony. The effect  of the inquiry will be to delay action on the issue until after the by-  elections.  The opposition, which facilitated  tbe bringing down of the resolution  by agreeing to a suspension of the  rules, asked that the debate, be adjourned till tomorrow so that the  matter could be considered, and J.  H. Schofield made a formal motion  to this effect. Premier Brewster,  however, refused on the ground that  haste was necessary, and the proposal to adjourn the debate for consideration and di������cussion tomorrow  was voted down by the government  majority. The rerolution was passed  without any division.  George S. Hanes, Liberal member  for North Vancouver, said if he had  had notice of the resolution and  more time to consider it he would  have divided the house upon tbe  question as to whether the legislature should'not bring in a war prohibition measure, taking another  vote when'.the soldiers returned.  The people in the province bad  voted by a big majority for prohibition, he "said, and should get it until after ..hostilities ceased and tbe  soldiers returned.  J. W. DeB. Farris said that be  was a prohibitionist and also favored  the prohibitionists had agreed to an  inquiry he would not oppose. He  said the representatives of the prohibitionists had been in close touch  with the matter, and therefore  should be more fully possessed of  the facts of the situation than he  was. There were occasions, however, when one might have such an  absolute conviction of irregularities  as to take action first "without delay  and inquire, if necessary.afterwards.  ATTORNEY-GENERAL  MACDONALD RESIGNS  GREAT NORTHERN  HOTFJJUHD  $12,000 Building and All  Contents Are Entirely  Destroyed  M. A. Macdonald resigned the  portfolio' 'of attorney-general on  Monday last, but will continue to  hold a seat in the provincial house  J. W. DeB. Farris.of Vancouver, has  been sworn in as president of the  council and will do the attorney-  general's work. He does not yet  take the attorney-generalship, because that -carries salary and involves an appeal to the electors for  endorsation, and the government  forces are anxious to postpone that  trial in Vancouver as long as possible.  In the house on Monday Mr. Macdonald declared his sweeping denial  which was made in the house in reply to Mr. Gowper's charge, that he  had been completely vindicated by  the inquiry. He said it had been  proved the money, came, not from  the Canadian Northern, but as a  "privaie donation" by Rod J Mackenzie. He said he only accepted  :ii"iai6'cVuse'3h:eTwaB'''a8_nrea:iova'8va''  personal contribution. Mr. Mackenzie is a '(director of the Canadian  Northern and also a son of Sir William Mackenz'e, president of the  Canadian Northern. The money  was paid through Dr._ Robert Mackenzie, uncle of Rod J.,and surgeon I  general for the company.  Mr. Macdonald was applauded by  a large section of the Liberal members of the house when he challenged J. S. Cowper, independent  Liberal; who made the charges  which'have resulted in forcing the  attorney-gen.ral to resign, to run  against him in- Vancouver. Mr.  Macdonald was applauded vigorously by government members for  a period that is a record for this  session of the house. It continued  until brought to a close by the clang  of the speaker's bell calling for  order.  The Great Northern hotel, near  the Great Northern station in tbe  West end, was burned to the ground  about 1.30 o'clock Monday morning. The building was valued at  812,000, and 88,000 insurance was  carried on the house and furnishings.  At the time the fire broke out  both the proprietors were away from  home, and the house was empty.  JJr. Peterson was in Nelsonjand Mr.  Matthews in Phoenix. The origin of  fire is therefore unknown. When  the fire was discovered the flames  had gained consideiable headway,  and when the fire brigade arrived  on the ground nothing could be  done except to save the surrounding buildings.  The Great Northern hotel was  erected eight or ten years ago by P.  D. McDonald, now of Penticton. It  isunderstqod that he still owned an  interest in the house. Since it was  first opened as an hotel, the house  has been under many managements.  LABOR DEPARTMENT  MAY BE CREATED  An Excellent Reason  Not every maid combines tbe  aptitude for blnndering and tbe  talent for ingenious explanation that  characterize tbe young woman about  whom the United Presbyterian tells  this diverting story:  "What do you suppose has come  over my husband this morning,  Sophia?" exclaimed a conscientious  little bride to her new servant. ''I  never saw him start downtown so  bappy. He is whistling like a  bird!"  "I'm afraid I'm to blame, mum.  I got the packages mixed this morning, and gave him birdseed instead  of his regular breakfast food, mum."  Victoria, May 14.���������It is understood Premier Brewster will bring  down a bill establishing a department of labor for British  Columbia.  In Liberal circles it is said J. E.  W. Thon-pson, member for Grand  Forks, is the logical man to become  minister in charge, though he might  refuse to accept it.  Mr. Thompson is popular with  his fellow workers, and it is felt the  government would like to have him  accept the portfolio of labor when  the new department is created.  In a letter to The Sun, the mana-  an inquiry, as the Liberals believed 'ger of the B. C. Nurseries company,  in the principles of the referendum.  Dr. Mcintosh, of Vancouver, was  inclined'  to   agrefi with Mr. Hanes,  Vancouver,   says:    "We  have  had  very satisfactory results from adver-jap-jn8t  tiniug in your paper, aud hence it is' ^vealth  of the citizeun.

C.  OFFICE:    COLUMBIA AVENUE AND LAKE STREET.  FRIDAY, MAY 18, 1917  during the past month, the British and French  troops would now be a great deal closer to  Berlin than they are.  Everything is going up, and nothing but the  high diver and Zeppelins give any promise of  coming down.  <F  Genius is no snob: but genius seldom kisses  "the brow of the idler.  Premier's Brewster's announcement of his  method of disposing of the  prohibition question  should satisfy  both the   "dry" and  the  "wet" factions in the province.    It is difficult  to see how, for the present, he could have settled the matter in any  other manner without  doing an injustice to one side or the other. It  is undisputed that the overseas soldiers' vote  defeated the prohibition  measure.    Whether  or not there were irregularities in taking that  vote remains with the investigation  commis-  sion 'which is to be appointed to find out.   In  the meantime the  hotel men have a right to  carry on their business  in  accordance  with  the expressed wishes of a majority of the electors; and Mr. Brewster acted justly in arriving  at  this  decision.    It was not a  question of  acting    in    accordance    with    personal   in������  clinations,  but  to  carry out the will of the  people.    To have enacted a prohibition law  in  the face  of the  vote  would have placed  British Columbians under an autocracy.  Perhaps one reason why the Washington  administration is so reluctant about sending  Teddy Roosevelt to France is the dtfficulty of  censoring his speech. At present Teddy is  YQiy restless, and it will soon require a double  log chain to keep him at home.  fe^ Bride's Ctioice  :^  Nowadays is a handsome piece"of Cut Glass.

Macdonald in his turbulent trials and tribulations. The most charitable view that can  taken of his case is, that he has acted very  indiscreetly; and an indiscreet man is not exactly the right kind of a person to hold".the  portfolio of attorney-gendrffcl of .British Columbia. The announcement of his resignation  was therefore not unwelcome news. Premier  Brewster's government would have been  stronger today had some one else been appointed to that position.  Cuba is no half-hearted ally. Its navy of  more than twenty war vessels, which is to be  reinforced by fifty submarine chasers now  building, is patrolling the coasts of the island  to make sure that Germans do not establish a  U-boat base there; and President Menocal is  earnest in his desire that at least a part of the  army, which now numbers about thirty-five  thousand men, shall carry the Cuban flag into  battle in Europe.  ^=  J  No healthy boy believes that  the  bathtub  is as sanitary as the old swimming hole.  With selective conscription in   the  United  States, it is not improbable that Canada may  ���������be forced to enact a similar law,  should the  war drag for "in undue  length of time.    The  word "conscription"  is  not popular  in  this  country; it, in fact, stirs the resentment of the  people; but it appears to be the  only means  of reaching  the slacker.    It is, besides, the  most equitable way of raising and maintaining an army in  time  of national peril.    The  antipathy for the term is not justified.    Our  public school system virtually conscripts every  boy and every girl at a certain  age;  the jury  system conscripts' a large part of the male  population.    If it is only the word that is unpopular, let us invent a sweeter sounding  substitute.  A student  of   human     nature,   savs   the  * _>  Youth's Companion, can, we  think,   nowhere  else  find   more  to  reward   him  than in the  "agony column" of the London Times.   There  the English people  display  their'characters  with extraordinary frankness, many  times  in  odd ways   that make you laugh, but often in  ways that are tragic and moving.    Take this,  for example: .  |_ADY, fianee killed,n-ill gladly MARRY and      *  give up life to the care and happiness of  man Winded or otherwise incapacitated by the  war.���������Box Y, 496, The Times.;  Blessed are the office seekers  who  expect  nothing, for they shall not be disappointed.
