No. 81
An Extension of Fifteen Days
=r-~"Granted  the Bridge'
,q?      'Contractors.
Mayqr Burrell had recovered suf-
-fieierfuy from his recent indisposition to preside at last night session
.of. the city council, which was de-
...yoted/ entirely.to the transaction of
imUtinfi^businesS. All the aldermen
'wuiept Martin were present.
';' The proposition of E. Jacobs, of
oLjV''(I  lo i . h.       '
vjraQMjoofL to, give the city a three-
!!Pf*He,i:.WJicfu-Pi: /together with two
ii]lus,tr^i>ons,/in, the B. C. Mining
Recordjj fpr,!*25, was taken up from
last week's, unfinished business,
^p'-j^cobsaigp agreed to distribute,
Ire&ijlOOjcopiesof the paper among
members of the Associated Cham-
■bers-of-Commerce of the Empire.
The offer was opposed by Aid. Gaw
and McLellan on the grounds of
economy and retrenchment. Mr.
Gaw tfajd that if a stop was not put to
granting promiscuous appropriations
for every scheme brought before the
council,, the city would be farther
behind at the end of the present term
than it was last year. The mayor and
! the «pther aldermen spoke in favor of
the scheme. They pointed out that
similar offers had been accepted by
Greenwood and Phoenix, and it
would look bad to see this city left
out iri the cold. On motibri of Aid.
McCaullum arid Peterson, Mr. Jacobs' proposition was accepted, provided he would furnish a few extra
copies of the paper to the city.
Mayor Burrell announced the receipt of an invitation to the members
of the council to attend the Rossland
midsummer celebration.
Aid. Gaw reported that he had
made an arrangement with Mr J
Cameron for city water whereby the
later was to pay the city $15 toward buying the pipe and dig and
refill a 300-foot trench, the city in
return furnishing him with $15
worth of water. Thc agreement was
accepted by the council.
The application of Chas. Cussqn
for city water was referred to the
chairman of the water and light
committee, with power to act.
Mr. Knapp, of Addison & Knapp,
was present and asked the council
for an extension of fifteen days in
the time limit fixed for the completion of the Bridge street bridge.
He had not been able to get out the
material for the bridge as quickly
as he had expected. He also thought
that four. days was a rather brief
period to close the bridge to traffic,
and would also like to see this extended.. Mr. Creits, representing the
unsuccessful bidders for the work,
also addressed the council and maintained that the .contractors ought to
be held (to the strict letter of the
agreement. The other contractors
had known the time set for the completion of the bridge was rather
short, and haiLmade their tenders
accordingly. To grant an extension
would obviously do them an injustice. If the contractors were not able
to finish the work on time, they
should forfeit their bonds, and new
tenders be advertised for. The city
solicitor stilted that-time limit , w:as,
not a part of the original agreement,;
but an after consideration, and thq
council could'therefore extend it if
deemed advisable. On motion, sn
extension Of "fifteen days, or lb
September 1st, was granted, but)
the four days': limit-of closing tho
bridge to) traffic was left as it nowj
stands.
Dr. Northrop last Saturday amputated one-half of the right foot ofi
Billy Williams, the Kettle Valley]
lines brakeman who had three tob'sl
severed from his foot last Friday
evening at the Winnipeg avenue
crossing. The doctor at first thought.
he would be able to save the entire
foot, but on a closer examination lie
found a number of bones had been
badly crushed, and amputation jvras
deemed necessary. The injured man
is now doing nicely, and his recovery
is progreesing as speedily as could
be expected.
Miss McGill, who will be one ol'
the teachers in the intermediate
grade at the Central, arrived in the
city yesterday from Victoria.
The family of Mr. Weathcrington,
C. P. R. conductor between tho city
and the smelter, arrived today from
St. John, N. B., and will make this
city their permanent home. When
Grand.Forks.gets 10,000 families of
size, our population will exceed the
1,000,000 mark.
Miss Shepherd, of thc Shepherd &
Bell Millinery Co., returned yesterday from a visit to Nelson.
Harry Jackson has returned from
a pleasant visit with friends in Montana, Idaha and Washington. Mrs.
Jackson, who is now in" Montana at
her old home, will conclude her visit
next month.
HILL'S RAILWAYS
It is Reported That the Smelter Spur Will Be Built
This Fall.     ...
A persistent street rumor has been
in circulation for over a week to the
effect that active construction work
on the V., V. ,.'<& E, smelter spur
will soon be commenced. Some
claim to have reliable information
that^vorkontbe spur will start as;
soon as ihe -Colnmbja cut-off on the
main is,finished, and, as. that work is
np,Wi nearly.completed,;,they,| argue
that the iConstnictipngaiigs ivillsponj
bq mpy,ed fo the.city.■,,It, looks; as
if,thjercniig)|t;bespmp truth.in, thisl
repprjt, especially when supported:
by,the .fact that Right pf; Way Agenlj
DesBrisay has been, unusually busy
of late securing the right, pf way in
Phoenix for the branch to that camp.
A gentleman in this.city, received
a letter from a friend in St. Paul i a
few. days ago. The writer, of the
letter is on intimate terms with thc
Great- Northern afficials in the
Saintly city. He writes;-that on a
recent visit to some of the men who
are close to Mr. Hill he had been
assured that the spur would be built
this fall. It is to be hoped that
the writer's information is well
founded.
On the coast thc Great Northern
appears to be busy with construction work. Under the charter which
used to be known as the V., V. & E.
the road is continuing construction,;
there being 1000 men at work be^
tween New Westminster and Sumas.'
The latter town, which is just within Washington, is already feeling the!
benefits of construction. Advise^
from there state that recent trials
and tribulations are forgotten,
threats to leave the town are wifh^1
drawn, and those who were hurryj
ing to sell their property are now!
snatching it back from  the market.]
The Great Northern is building a
number of small lines near Vancouver, which will make a sort of
network over thc rich fanning section of the lower Fraser valley and
connect with the Terminal city,
making it a big market town. Already the Delta country has been
served, thc line from New Westminster to Vancouxer is well under
way, and this new construction by
way of Chilliwack to the boundary
at Sumas will add a valuable freight
producing and receiving region to
the company.
At present thc lines arc being run
as separate from thc Great Northern. For instance, the extension
from New Westminster to Vancouver is known as part of the line of
the Vancouver, Westminster &
Northern railway. Tiiat from the
Royal city to Sumas is called the
N., V. .ifc-E., while the Delta line is
part of the Victoria Terminal system. When the bridge oter the
Fraser at New Westminster is completed these lines will naturally fit
the one into the other. The construction of the $1,000,000 bridge-
makes the great connecting link.
Ui
■ Mrs. P, 1). McDonald and children left this afternoon for Strathcona, Alta., where they will join
'Mr. McDonald and reside permanently in future. During their
residence in this city the family
made innumerable friends, all': of
whom will regret to: learn of their
departure. Mr. McDonald still retains some property interests in the
city, however, and after he has made
a fortune installing electrical plants
in the prairie towns he and his family will undoubtedly return to the
Boundary.   '        '' '''"'
Aid. M. S. Martin and Miss Fanny
Tencate were married in Spokane
yesterday, andare "expected "to return home this evening. The bride
is a sister of Miss Ida Tencate0, who
until quite recently conducted the
Clarendon restaurant in this city,
and spent considerable time in the
town. She made a host of
friends, all of whom esteem her
very highly.
Imphovko Mail Skkvick—Acting
on representations made by the Associated Boards of Trade and the
local boards, the Dominion government has improved'the mail service
through the Crow's Nest and on the

WHY 60 EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage 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 travei ng 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 per-
lect 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 be found
than is provided by these excursions.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in

time is not good service; but the two combine to

twentieth century business man. That we have

BOUNDARY MINK AND SMELTERS
The Providence Mining company
lost week received a cheque for
$2664, the net proceeds of a small
shipment of 14£ tons sent to the
Trail smelter about three weeks ago.
Since that shipment the principal
work done in the mine was to make
an upraise to connect with an old
shaft. This work has been completed, giving the mine a much better system of ventilation. With
this work finished mgitfe ore will be
extracted and heifer shipments
made to the smelters.
The Republic News-Miner says:
A. E. Palmer, who recently acquired the Jonathan Bourne Jr.
stock in the Mountain Lion mine for
S. H. C. Miner and other Canadian
parties, is expected in Republic the
coming week. The new management has already assumed control
of the property and placed T. J.
Miller in charge. It is expected
that by August 20th arrangements
will be completed for shipping ore at
the rate of 4000 tons per month.
There are 20,000 tons of ore on the
-'dump and a like amount broken
down ready for taking out. It is
understood that the new management will not.canfine the work to
shipping, it being the intention to.
commence development by sinking
400 feet, which will give the mine a
depth of 1000 feet,
R. H. Anderson, of the B. C.
mine, has been appointed superintendent of the LeRoi mine under
Manager Parrish. Mr. Anderson
was Mr. Parrish's right hand man at
the B. C. mine for several years.
R. P. Williams, Boundary agent
of the Jenckes Machine Co., has
been' taking a trip through the
Crow's Nest country. The Rossland
district has been added to his territory, with headquarters in the Boundary.
Mr. I/arson, a • Rossland mining
man, will probably succeed R. H.
Anderson as superintendent of the
Denoro mines.
Another cleanup has been made
at the Waterloo, Camp McKinney,
stamp mill, being 343.9 ounces of
gold, worth $5120. ( Within six
weeks the mine has, realized $8000
f.'om the mill.
It is expected)jthat work on the
Winnipeg niineJn Wellington camp,
will be resumed at an early date.
About a dozen men are now 'employed at the Oro Denoro mine,
and the force will be increased before long.
