Hutton and McCalluin were present.

Phoenix council that such a resolution had already been passed by the
Grand Forks council
A letter was read from George A.
Fraser, M. L. A., stiting that the
government would not stand for the
enactment of a Taw permitting incorporated cities to tax railway property
within city limits.
The following report was read from
the fire department:
To the Mayor and Members of the City
Council :

a motion for a vote of confidence in
the present chief, A. E. Savage,
which was carried unanimously.
The department recommend Fred
Reid's appointment to the office of
engineer, with the privilege of selecting his fireman, aijd further recommend that the council provide blank
forms for the chief.
We find that the apparatus is all
in good working condition, and we
believe that the department is also in
good condition, and that with judicious government and harmony between your honorable body and the
department, the most favorable results may be effected.
Committee—J. M. Simpson, I. A.
Dinsmore, P. H. Donaldson, D. M.
McDonald.
The report was received and ordered filed, and the recommendation
of the department adopted.
Mayor Hammar stated that the
police would possibly have to be cut
down to one man before the end of
the present summer, in which event
the fire chief would have to be paid
the same salary as he is now receiving for acting as chief and doing police duty. The commissioners would
put in an estimate for salaries at the
next meeting.
Aid. McCallum said the commissioners didn't see the sense of paying two men for work that one could
do.
Mayor Hammar added that the
chief of police was doing night duty
at present, and that the city was
practically without a day policeman.
A report was read from Dr. C. M.
Kingston, city medical health officer,
giving a tabulated statement of the
amount of sickness in the city during
the post year.
The estimates from the school
trustees were read, and ordered filed
until the estimates from the other
departments are received. The sum
asked for school purposes for the
coming year is $8,695.50. Trustees
Spier and DinBmore were present,
and Mr. Spier addressed the council
at length, giving an outline of the
improvements contemplated during
the year. These included the fencing
of the school ground, the building of
a gymnasium and porches at the
Winnepeg (.venue entrances. The
most important of these improvements, he said, was the fencing of
the premises, as nothing could be
done in the way of beautying the
grounds until this was done. The
cost of the fence was estimated at
$1,000 and the gymnasium at$2,000.
David Woodhead had the only
application before tbe council for
thc position of poundkeeper, and on
motion, he received the appointment, together with the fees as his
salary. The board of works was in
structcd to fix up the old school
shed as a city pound.
Tenders to furniiish the city with
■fir and Iniimt.ic lumber in car lots
were received from the Yule-Columbia
Lumber compuny, the Kettle Kiver
Lumber company, Wm. McNee and
It. Gaw. After tbe various bids hud
been duly considered, the contract
was, on metion of Aid. Clements and
McCalluin, awarded to the Kettle
River Lumber company at $12 per
thousand, thut being the lowest bid.
•A proviso was also inserted in the contract to !*he effect that the lumber
must be delivered iu the city yards.

At a meeting of the department
held on the 3rd of March there was
Great Northern Opened Its
Phoenix   Branch   on
Sunday Last.
James Anderson, one of the old-
timers of Grand Forks, arrived in
the city on Saturday from Seattle,
where he is now engaged in the hotel
business. In the evening a practical
joker circulated the rumor among
the youngsters of the city that Jim
had just been married, and they
immediately organized a charivari
party and followed their victim to a
barber shop. When they found out
that they had been misinformed,
they turned around and charivaried
their informant—which was perfectly proper. Tiny should have
kept the noise up all night.

The through service from Spokane
to Phoenix over thc Great Northern
commenced on Sunday, and there
was quite a crowd at the depot here
to welcome the first through train
from the south, which carried a large-
number of passengers through to
Phoenix.- The trains leave Grand
Forks later and arrive earlier than
under the former schedule, which is
a decided advantage, as it now allows
more time to distribute local mail
the same day it arrives.
Fifteen more 50-ton ore cars arrived in this city for the Northern
last Sunday night, making 45 cars
in all now employed in the ore hauling traffic in the Boundary on that

Has the Lightest Grades of
Any of the American
Railways.
President Hays, of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway, has recently
announced that the transcontinental
line which that company is to build
across the northern part of Canada
will cost about $148,000,000 for the
3,300 mile stretch, and that the
grades will be even more satisfactory
than at first, calculated—1£ per cent
in the mountain section, about £ per
cent west of the mountains, and
about 20 feet to the mile east of tbe
mountains eastward bound.
Through the explorations already
made it was found that the country
through which the railway will pass,
even the points farthest north, is fertile and capable of yielding 32 bushels of wheat to the acre.
It would look aB though in respect .
of the grades which it is to encounter
the new line has the advantage of all
other great transcontinental railways
now established. Compared with
those which characterive the C.P.R.
route, the disparity in favor of tbe
projected railway is at once apparent. The biggest grade on the C.
P. R. is that through the Kicking
Horse Pass, which is 4£ per cent to
the mile, or, in other words, about
250 feet to the mile. Outside of this
excessive grade, however, the maximum grade throughout the mountains is 2 per cent, or 103 feet to the
mile.
The maximum grade on the G. T.
P. in the mountain section is 1J per
cent, or 78 feet to the mile. That
will mean that in a load of 1,000
tons the grade, as between the 2 per
cent on theC. P. R., and the li per
cent on the G. T. P., will probably
make the difference of an additional
engine.
To state the situation differently,
a G.T.P. engine will be able to carry
twice the load of an engine operating
on a 2 per cent grade, and make better time into the bargain, because of
the fact that there will be less interference with the lift.
At no point on the G.T.P. is it expected that thc rails will lie over
3,000 feet above tide water. What
this means will be at once seen when
it is stated that the next lowest
amongst the transcontinental lines is
thc limit Northern, which goes as
high as 5,200 feet.
The other transcontinental lines
follow in this order: C.P.R,, 5.300
feet; Northern Pacific, 5,567 feet;
Santa Fc, 7,600 feet; Union Pacific,
8,200 feet.
It will thus be seen that in length
of grades and in total height the advantage in the mountain district is
all in favor of the Grand Trunk Pacific railway.

TUESDAY, MARCH 7, 1905.
German manufacturers have dis
covered a new cement, comppsed of
85 per cent of granulated slag and
15 per cent of lime hydrate, which
makes a much harder cement than
any yet produced. The slag and
lime are thoroughly ground before
mixing. It has been found that the
rapid quenching of the slag produces
greater binding and hardening pro-,
perties in the product. By one
method recently perfected two jets
of water under a pressure of 40 to 80
pounds to the square inch are projected, the first in line with the following slag, and the second at right
angles to it. The slag falls under the
runner spout on the first stream of
water, and is carried by it in the
form of a thin sheet under the second
jet, which breaks up and thoroughly
disintegrates it and quenches it.
With the almost unlimited supply of
the raw material at hand there would
seem to be a good opening for an
enterprising business man to commence manufacturing that kind of
cement in Grand Forks.
At a large meeting in Toronto last
week Rev. L. W. Gamble, of Kansas
City, field secretary of the American
Sabbath union of New York, stated
that while he realized the fact that
the standard of manhood in Canada
was higher than that in the United
States, still there are 150,000 men
in the Dominion without a Sabbath.
In the United States 5,000 men a
week were being driven to a premature grave by ceaseless grind, and
3,000 per week were taking to drink.
Commercialism and a foreign population were doing much to wreck the
Sabbath. Mr. Gamble commended
the zealous efforts put forth by Canadians to preserve the Sacredness of
Sunday. After a little study of the
question from this viewpoint, is there
any sane man who will get up and
declare against the humanitarian
merits of the eight-hour law for the
smelter men in British Columbia,
which would do away with the 84-
hour-per-week grind now enforced ?
American citizens of Alaska apparently feel as bad now as Canadians
did a year ago when Lord Alver-
stone gave away part of Canada to
to the United States, for upon being
refused a representative in the United
States congress, they sent thc follow
ing telegram to President Roosevelt:
"On behalf of 60,000 American citi
zens in Alaska who are denied the
right of representation in any form,
we demand, in mass meeting assembled, that Alaska be annexed to
Canada.'1 It is hardly likely, however, that the modest request will be
granted ; and after a good sleep the
miners will doubtless feel satisfied
with conditions as they are.
"The Canadian Railway commission, constituted only about one year
ago, was based on a study of the
English and the American commissions, and profited by tl.eir successes
and lapses," says The Boston Transcript. "The result was a law and
system iu Canada which is regarded
as a model.   The Canadian board
has extraordinary powers, among
them that of fixing rates, and no revolution has yet occurred in the Dominion over the exercise of that
power It is difficult to convince
some Americans that they can learn
a lesson from 'Canucks,' but in this
case the possibility seems clearly
proved."
Human perversity is indeed a
queer institution. Thc very people
who last week confidently informed
us that "no one ever reads the loeal
newspapers" are this week hollering
over an item which appeared in last
Tuesday's issue. Who told them the
item was in the paper anyway ?
We may be somewhat behind in
our announcement, but during our
sunset saunterings on Saturday we
came across our first robin ofthe
season, skirmishing for a good location to start up housekeeping in this
highly favored section.
Probably no one in town greeted
the arrival of spring with greater
feelings of pleasure than that loo e

WHY BO WOMEN SUFFER
Such pain and endure the torture of
nervous headache when a quarter buys
a bottle of Nerviline, which never
fails to relieve. Just a few drops of
Nerviline in sweetened water cures
nervousness or sick headache, relieves
heart palpitation and makes you feel
better immediately. Nerviline can't be
beaten for quickly curing stomach and
bowel troubles and should be kept in
every home. It's good to rub on for
external pain and excellent for inward
use. Sold in large 25c bottles. H. E.

"PAUL KAUVAR"
The Latest Production of Mr. Harold
Nelson to Be Seen Here
Tomorrow.
Mr. Harold Nelson, an actor who
may always be relied upon to give
dramatic portrayals of merit, is returning to us with his latest production, "Paul Kauvar." This is one
of the strongest plays ever written
dealing with thrilling incidents of
the French revolution. No one can
fail to be interested in the plot or
fail to sympathize with the hero or
heroine, or await the denouement
with feelings of anxiety. The part
of Paul Kauvar, painter and patriot,
well suits Mr. Nelson, and in it he
has made the success of his stage career. His manager, Mr. C. P.
Walker, has given him a very strong
supporting company, and has also
without regard to expense equipped
the new production with effective
scenery and costuming. A splendid
performance may be expected when
"Paul Kauvar" is produced here on
Wednesday evening, March 8. Prices
$1.00 and 75 cents. Reserved seats
now on sale at Woodland's drug
store.

The monthly financial statement
was reud and ordered filed.
The chairman jf the finance committee asked for more time in which
to make a report as the condition of
the sinking fund covering certain debentures.    The request was grunted,
The resolution from the Victoria
city council, laid over from the last
meeting, was then taken up. The
resolution urges the provincial government to amend the School Aet so us to
give sohool trustees the power to raise
funds by dire t tixation. Under the present Act there is a limit
to the amount of money that cun be
raised by taxation for school purposes,
but no limit is placed on expenditures
of the trustees, thus often tempting
them to spend more money than is
actually raised for the schools by taxation.
Aid. McCallum thought the present
School Act was unsatisfactory, but he
did not favor the resolution, as the
change advocated would necessitate
two assessment rolls. The defects in
the Act might be remedied before the
bill now pending before the legislature
is passed.
The communication was ordered
placed on file.
A letter wus read from Miss Rhodes,
She invited the members of the council to visit her hospital, and she would
endeavor to demonstrate thut it was
not such a cold-blooded money-making
institution as they appeared to think.
The mayor didn't feel as harshly
toward the hospital ut present us lie
hud a couple of weeks ago, us he had
since learned that the letter published
in the News-Guzette had been written
by another woman. The men had
worked on the frozen pipes until 11
o'clock at night, and he thought thut
was as far as the city could be expected to go.
The letter was ordered filed.
Mayor Hammar stated that during
the past two weeks there had been a
question raised as to the legality of
the peddling license by-law. It it
could be done, he would like to see
the fee made almost prohibitive to
peddlers and hawkers coming from
outside the valley, Recently a certain shoemaker in this city had taken
out a $5 license to peddle meat, and
then turned it over to outside parties
who imported their meat from Washington, for which a $20 license is required, This transaction showed, he
said, that they hud attempted to defraud the city out of $15. But the
difference in the. two licenses had been
collected from them, which had made
them threaten the city with u luw suit.
Aid. McCullum gave notice that
he would at the next meeting introduce a by-law governing peddlers and
hawkers.
The meeting then ailjou-ned.

ONE OF THE VILEST DISEASES
Is catarrh, which uttucks the nose
und throat and . finally spreads all
through the system. The one sire
cure is fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
which is sent by the air you breathe
direct to the root of the trouble. Mr.
T. Y. Mac Vicar, of Yarmouth suffered for years from catarrh, unci suys;
"In my long experience with the
louthsome disease I never used any
remedy that relieved and cured as
promptly as Catarrhozone. When my
nostrils were so stuffed up thut I
couldn't breathe I found u few inhalations of Cutarrhozone was sufficient to
ciear uwuy the mucous. I am perfectly cured by Catarrhozone and free
from the disease entirely. Use only
Cuturrhozone. Complete outfit 81.00;

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comforhible 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 cast-
em points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair can,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
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 oan he found
than is provided by these excursions.

With scarlet lips uud eyes of tlimic.
He paused uud Bused, "Oh, tell to nw
Who Is this woman, fair to see!"
"Do you not kuow?" the Vision cried,
"O Love," he tremblingly replied,
"I've wnlted for you ull my days!

She of the eyes serene walked ou,
Tbe sunshine with ber lover goue.
"She bus no kciu-t." the others suid,
Until one dity tbey found her dead.

Beyond thc reach of passions play.
And then the man knelt at her feet,
And mourned:    "My love,    uiy   life,    my

Sir William Taylor's Itatlr.ni.nl.
The army will shortly loso tho services of Sir William Taylor, K.C.D.,
whose period of appointment ' as
Director-General A.M.S., terminates
early in December, says Tho British
Medical Journal, which adds that
it is authorized to contradict the
statement that Sir Frederick Treves
is to succeed to the oftico. Sir William Taylor was born in 1843, the
third son ol tho late Mr. James Taylor of . Etruria, Staffordshire, and
Moorfleld, Ayshire. Ho Joined tho
Army Medical Staff in 1801, and served with distinction in Canada, India, Ashanti and Egypt, boing present at the battle of Omdurman, He
also witnessed the C'hlno-J apanese
war as mllitary-ihedlcal attache to
the Japanese army. He was principal medical ollicer tu the forces in
India prior to his oppo ntment as
DircctdT-Gcncral ol the Army Medical
Corps in 1901.
Rain Never Stops.
There Is a group of islands to the
south ol Now Zealand called the Sisters, or Seven Sisters, which are reputed to be subjects to a practically
constant rainfall. The same may be
Baid of the islands and mainland of
Terra del Fuego, except that thc rain
often takes the form of sleet and
snow. On a. line running round the
world from 4 degrees to 8 degrees or
9 degrees there ore patches over
which rain seldom ceases to fall.
This is called the "zone of constant
precipitation," but at the same time
there are several localities along it
with very little rainfall.
