Fourth Year.-No. 34
Grand Forlcs, B. C, Friday, February 24, 1905
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
mm bill
Defeated in the Legislature
by a Vote of 26
to 12.
Individual Opinion, and Not
Party Lines, Governed
the Vote,
The Hawthorthwaite bill to enforce the eight-hour day in smelters
was defeated on its second reading
on Wednesday afternoon by a vote
ot 26 to 12, as follows :
For—Hawthorthwaite, Williams,
Socialists; Davidson, Labor; Mc-
Niven, Henderson, Jones, Liberals;
Clifford, Fraser, Houston, McOowan,
Shatford, Gifford, Conservatives—12.
Against—McBride, Green, Fulton,
Cotton, Tatlow, Bowser, Price Ellison, Grant, Garden, A. Macdonald,
Ross, Taylor, Wright, Young, Con-
servutives; Brown, Cameron, Drury,
Evans, Hall, King, Munro, Murphy,
Maclnnes, Oliver, Patterson, Tanner,
Liberals—26.
In moving the second, reading of
the bill, Mr. Hawthornthwaite appealed to the members to. set aside
all prejudices, and deal with the bill
on its merits. He had no desire to
stir up industrial strife in the Pro
vince ; on the contrary, his object
^vas, by prowring this legislation,
to promote industrial^peace and aid
in the advancement of an important
industry. He did not believe for
one moment that any industry in
the Province would be injured by
the enactment of laws regulating the
hours of labor, and closed with an
eloquent appeal to the bouse to relieve smelter employees from "merciless and deadly exploitation of
greedy capitalists."
Premier McBride, after complimenting the introducer of the bill on
his able speech, and declaring his
hearty sympathy 'with any measure
designed to meet fait and reasonable
demands of labor, proceeded to show
why the bill at this juncture should
not receive the assent of the legislature. In the first place<he was not
prepared to atscept as correct Mr.
Hawthortriwaitc's account 'of the
conditions in smelters. He did not
consider them to be of such a dangerous and unhealthy nature as to
warrant the passage of the bill. In
conclusion he declared that the passage of the bill at this time' 'was not
only inopportune, but wpuld give
the Province a setback txipb which
it would take several years to recover, a setback which would result
still more injuriously to workmen
J. A. Macdonald, leader of the
Opposition, said he felt some delicacy in addressing the house on this
question, owing to the Ret that he
happened to be connected professionally with one of the large smelters
of the Province, and perhaps any
words which he might utter would
be attributed to personal interest in
the discussion, but he felt that he
must express to the house his sentiment on this important measure, for
even though connected with the
smelting industry, he had not one
dollar invested therein. He thought
it would be well, before any act of
this kind should be passed, that fair
opportunity should be given to both I
employers and employees to come
together and endeavor to agree upon
a schedule ol hours fair to both, and
which would not work harm to the
general interests of the Province, and
failing in this, if it appeared that the
men were still working unreasonable
hours, then the legislature might
properly and legitimately interfere.
Mr. Brown, of Greenwood, spoke
briefly as to the.conditions of labor
in the smelters in the Boundary dis-
rrict and of the friendly relations
heretofore existing between employ
ers and employees. He feaied that
if the/bill was passed, the smelters
would close down, and by the time
they reopened the men now employed would have been compelled to
leave and a new class of cheap labor,
possibly Mongolians, would be introduced to take their places. For these
reasons he con'.d not support the bill.
Mr. Fraser, of Grand Forks, read
the telegram be had received from
smelter employees asking him to
support the bill, and he intimated
his intention of so doing. Working
in smelters was infinitely more dangerous and injurious to health than
working in metalliferous mines, and
if it was fair to grant an eight-hour
day in the one case, in all fairness
the legislature should accede to the
appeal to the smelter employees.
The bill before the legfslature, it had
been affirmed, promised to disturb
the industrial relations between em-
ployers and employees. They might,
however, get together and agree
upon a schedule of hours just as they
do upon a schedule of wages.
Mr. Houston, of Nelson, said that
he represented a constituency that
contained neither mines nor smelters within its limits, so that he was
free to give an independent expres-
sion of opinion on the subject before the house. Moreover, being at
present an Ishmaelite, he was under
no party obligations. He had received telegrams from the Nelson
board of trade asking him to oppose
the bill. He had also received a
telegram from the Nelson trades and
labor council asking him to support
it. It was evident, therefore, that
the people of Nelson were divided
on the subject. That Premier McBride had announced his intention
of opposing the bill did not surprise
him at all, although as minister of
mines he should have been first and
foremost in its defense. He pointed
out that when the eight-hour law for
metalliferous mines was passed, a
general cry was raised that there was
no demand for it. While that might
be true, he would like to know how
many members of the legislature
would vote for its repeal. The same
conditions applied to the present bill?
While there may be no loud demand
for it now, once in effect, he qucs-
i.ioned if any member of the legislature in years hence would vote for
ils repeal.
Amusement seekers are awaiting
with pleasurable anticipation the
forthcoming production of "Paul
Kauvar," at the Grand Forks opera
house by Mr. Harold Nelson and
his company. This is by all odds
the strongest play the talented Canadian actor has yet had outside of
the classics, and the stage settings
will.be in tne nature of a revelation
to our theatre-goers; even after the
lavish production given ' 'Quo Vadis''
and "Faust" by Manager C. P.
Walker.
Taylor & Fisher Receive an
Important Contract From
the Granby Co.
Federal  Labor Union  Will
Give Their Annual Ball
on March'7ttii'
Taylor & Fisher, the local con
tractors, were this week awarded
two important contracts by the Great
Northern and Granby companies.
One calls for hauling from the smel-.
ter and loading on Great Northern
cars all the blister copper shipped
east by the Granby company ; also
for unloading and hauling to the
smelter all machinery consigned
to the company. The other contract
involves the clearing away of a large
amount of rock and dirt, and preparing a foundation for the new smokestack, which will be erected between
the smelter and the dam early this
spring. This contract also includes
the hauling of the brick for the
smokestack. All the teamsters and
contractors of the city'put in tenders
for this work, but Messrs. Taylor
and Fisher had the lowest figures,
and received the contracts. They
think they have nearly a summer's
job at the smelter, and will establish a camp there as soon as pos
sible.,
The Grand Forks Federal Labor
Union No. 231, A.L.U., will give
their third annual ball, on Tuesday,
March 7, in Eagles' hall. It is the
intention of the union to make this
dance a social event, and the best
music obtainable will be secured,
The following committees have been
appointed to take charge of the affair: Arrangement, Geo. Nye, Dan
Kelly and J. Singer; floor, H. Lutley, J. Singer, Dan Kelly, John
Bunting and J. C. Harris. Tickets
will be $1.00. Supper, which will
be served in the hall, will be extra.
That Manager C. P. Walker in
tends to give the people of western
Canada the very best possible is evident Irom what ts said by the press
everywhere of his latest production
for Mr. Harold Nelson. The play is
Steele Mackaye's masterpiece,;"Paul
Kauvar," in which the favorite actor
plays the title-role. Complete stage
settings were prepared under Mr.
Walker's supervision by the Twin
City Scenic Studio, of Minneapolis,
whose artists are the best in the
west. The costumes have been
made from the original designs, and
are beautiful and historically correct.' From all reports Mr. Ncl-K.n's
many admirers will bo more than
pleased with this his latest success.

Inspector McCarthy Permits
Phoenix Branch Opening March 5th.
Daniel M. Cantlon, a brakeman
employed with a Great Northern ballasting crew, was badly injured in
the yards in this city last Saturday
evening by getting his arm caught
between the drawheads of two <cars
while engaged in shunting. The arm
was badly crushed and mangled, the
bones being also injured. Dr. Northrop was immediately called, and he
advised amputation, but the railway
people thought the limb could be
saved, and so the arm was dressed,
and the man was sent to the Sacred
Heart hospital in Spokone the following day. After reaching Spokane
blood poisoning set in, and Cantlon
died on Wednesday evening. The
remains were shipped to Everett for
interment. Deceased has been a resident of this city ever since ballasting on the Phoenix branch commenced, and was well liked by his
fellow-workers.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1905.
A new school act has been introduced in the British Columbia legislature. It provides for a radical
change in the system of contribution to the Bchools of the Province,
Under this plan the districts in which
each sohool is situated shall have to
bear directly more of the cost of
maintaining it, thus lessening the
burden on the Provincial treasury.
The C. P. R. holds the honor of
having the swiftest boats between
America and the Orient. In a race
recently between the Great Northern's new Bteamer, the Minnesota
and the C. R. R. Empress of Japan
the Canadian boat won in tbe trip
from Vancouver to Yokohama by
the big margin of five days.
W, A. Aldridge, manager of the
Canadian Pacific's mining department, who is to be manager of the
Le Roi-Centre Star combination if it
goes through, is credited with being
the highrst salaried man in British
Columbia, with a retainer pf from
$20,000 to 830,000 a year from the
C. P. R.
The question of securing a Provincial university is now being discussed, to meet the requirements of
the growing educational development of British Columbia.
This year's convention of the British Columbia Mining association will
be held in Victoria some time between the 24th and 31st of July.
Conservative members at Ottawa
have chosen their respective Provincial whips. For obvious reasons no
British Columbia choice was made.
Letters from Canada to Mexico may

At a meeting of the railway committee ai Ottawa on Tuesday a bill
authorizing the construction of a
railway from Osoyoos lake to a point
near Grand Forks was referred to a
sub-committee. This is the Nicola,
Kamloops and Similkameen Coal
and Railway company bill which
overrides certain provisions of an act
of thc British Columbia legislature,
which is to thc effect that notwithstanding anything in Federal legislation, the lieutenant-govcrnor-in-
council of British Columbia shall
have control of tho rates to be charged on the road. The sub-coin mitten
reported on Thursday, but Duncan
Ross, memder for Yale-Cariboo, objected to this road monopolizing the
Kootenay nnd Similkameen passes,
aa there was only room for one or
two roads at most, and this company
might take up all the available space,
Minister of Railways Emmerson satisfied Mr. Ross, however, that other
railways were fully protected by the
general railway act, as far as passes
wero concerned,  and the bill was

The Winnipeg mine, in Phoenix
camp, recently purchased by W. T.
Hunter of Greenwood, head of the
Hunter-Kendrick company, has
been bonded to the Granby company for $15,000. The property
was sold by the court to pay up certain obligations against it incurred
under the administration of th'j
mine by Richard Plewman, formerly of Rossland. The Granby people
will explore the property thoroughly
before any considerable part of the
purchase matures price, and the belief exists that the bond will be duly
taken up. In the early days the
stock of the Winnipeg touched high
water mark at about 33c, but immediately thereafter became of no trading value whatever.. The methods
of the Granby company, however,
may prove the property a valuable
one.

Charles M. Hays, president of the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway company,
says there is no truth in the report
from Ottawa that a point about two
miles from Port Simpson, named Cunningham Inlet, has been chosen as the
Pacific terminus "I suppose they will
choose every place on the coast before
they get through," said Mr. Hays. "It
will be some time yet before we can
make a choice. We have to await the
hydrographic report of the admiralty,
and it may be late spring or summer
time before we receive it."

The specialists must be divided Into
two distinct classes, tbe surgeon proper and tbe pure physician. Tbe former
unquestionably gets big fees In ratio
to bis reputation. Tbe famous Burgeon
bas only to nams bis fee to tbe millionaire with appendicitis. Wltb the
fesr of desth before his eyes be will
write bis check gladly. Wben he has
recovered be will often grumble If he
does not boast A younger and less
known man will perform the same operation for a tithe of the cost, but the
public, with death staring tbem in tbe
face, will bare tbe man wltb tbe big
name, regardless of expense.
But the pure physician la an entirely
different matter. His fees are standardized not by act of parliament, but
by that autocratic body, the Royal
College of Physicians. His fees for
consultation at his own house are
fixed at 2 guineas the Drat visit and a
guinea for each subsequent one. For
consultations away from home he receives a fee at the calculated rate of
two-thirds of a guinea a mile. Elstree,
twelve miles out of town, Is Ipso facto
8 guineas, Liverpool (201 miles) Is 134
guineas, and so on pro rata. But It
must be remembered that nowadays
all tbe big provincial centers have
tbeir own specialists, and the town
man Is very seldom sent for unless he
be one of the very biggest names and
tbe case desperate and rich.
If the physician should accept mors
be transgresses tbat professional fetich, "medical etiquette," and Is branded a quack by bis less lucky brethren.
Moreover, when he arrives at a sufficient standing In tbe ranks of bis profession the Royal College of Physicians will not elect bim to their all important fellowship, the crowning qualification and high water mark of bis
calling—London Mall.

WHY GO EAST
Over ihe sun-burned, gage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
Wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can he found
than is provided by these excursions.

BURY SUDDEN DEATHS
Are traced to a heart that was neglected. If your heart is weak or beats
too rapidly you need Ferrozone to
strengthen the heart's muscles, regulate its action and stop smothering
spasms. Ferrozone always cures weak
heart and restores this organ to a
strong, healthy state. ' The best hoart
medicide in the world is Ferrozone,
which beats any substitute. Widely
used by doctors and sold at 50c per
box by H. E. Woodland, druggist.
MEASURING TIME.
Mataode Used Before ike Adreat ot
Clocks aad Wotehee.
Probably tht oldest method of determining the time of day was by th*
sundial, but other devices have been
used for sges, Including tbe water
clock, the burning wick and the bour
glsss filled with sand. Popular legend
attributes to King Alfred tiie invention
of tbe water clock, but long before bis
time It was In use by tbe Egyptians
and la Judea, Babylon, Cbaldea and
Phoenicia. Tbe contrivance for measuring time by means of water appears
to bave consisted of a basin filled wltb
water and exposed In some nlcbe or
corner cf a public place. At the extreme end of the vessel was a spout
or tap from which trickled tbe liquid
drop by drop into a receiver bavlng on
Its Inside marks for Indicating th*
hours of tbe day and night.
In parts of southern India there was
used a thin copper bowl about flv*
Inches in diameter and rather deeper
than balf a sphere, bavlng a very
small hole at the bottom. The bowl,
placed In a vessel containing water
and floating thereon, gradually filled.
At the expiration of an arranged Interval it sunk, and a boy or another
watcher then struck a gong and thus
announced the time. It showed tbe
lapse of periods of forty-flv* minute*
wltb tolerable accuracy, but the time
varied with th* temperature of th* water. It was passible by the introduction of a cylinder containing a floating
piston wblcb Worked on a cog wheel
to Indicate the hours.
Plato Introduced the clepsydra Into
Greece. It was used by the Romans
also. Th* king of Persia Is said to
have presented Charlemagne wltb a
water clock of bronie inlaid wltb gold.
Water clocks wero used up to tbe seventeenth century. Even with the Introduction of the pendulum water served "as the motor and tbe pendulum a*
a regulator."
Bars* Dar la Newcastle.
In Newcastle/England, the mayor enjoys th* privilege of once a year being
allowed to select and kiss any young
woman who takes bis fancy among
the coat city'* Inhabitants. Tbe kiss
la rather costly, however, for it 1* th*
custom to present the young person
kissed wltb a sovereign' ($5), while a
further gift Is made her by the lady
mayoress, no doubt to disprove Jealousy. The sheriff, not to be outdone,
also bestows a kiss upon a fair bystander, at tbe same rate of expenditure. Tbe occasion Is known as Barge
day, when the mayor and corporation
proceed In a procession of four gayly
decorated steamers and two old stat*
barges to claim tbe soil of tbe river
Tyue. Their Journey over, tbe mayor
stands upon the boundary stone, and It
Is here that the kissing Is Indulged In.
When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business de-'
mands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship aro of the
hest. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
