FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 190i
In tlie present municipal campaign the only *oliiim for recognition
put forward by the opposition to the
present mayor is along the lines of
reform. But there are reforms and
reforms, which are not always an improvement upon the original. Grand
Forks has had a varied experience
in her few years of existence, including her city councils, which
have been good, bad, indifferent—
and vacillating. After such experience her people have concluded that
she can be safest represented in her
civic board by business men with a
consistent policy, conducting those
affairs with broad-minded common
sense. Thc present mayor and council have regulated the city's business
with greater economy and progress
than any previous board, with the
resuit that her financial standing is
better now than at any previous
time. The experience that Mayor
Hammar has gained in that respect
during the past year will be of incalculable benefit of the city during the
coming year. Reforns which only
redound to the benefit of the person
advocating them will most assuredly
find no support from the taxpayers
of Grand Forks; they desire reforms
which will give thc city the best service at the least cost in the way of
taxes, nnd this policy has consistently and practically heen adopted
by Mayor Hammar. In contrast is
the present reform policy of Mr. Gaw,
as mayoralty candidate, who un-
blushingly proposes to pay the
mayor for his attendance at meetings, but not the aldermen. Voters
will not forget the fact that i wo years
ago Mr. Gaw, as alderman, threatened to retire if he was not paid for
his services at the council board.
His new idea would ben good thing
—for Mr. Gaw, if be were elected.
But the mayor of Grand Forks is
chosen for thc benefit of the public,
and not to holster up sonic man's
personal interests.
The movement would have more
effect if some of the present day so-
called reformers of civic politics had
taken that step in 1898, when tbey
were members of the eity council,
whose affairs in those good old days
were conducted in a very haphazard
fashion, and no account of receipts
or expenses were kept. Nowadays
the city's affairs are run upon a systematic basis, and the present incumbent of the mayor's chair has
applied better business principles to
them than any of his  predecessors.
Mr. Gaw says fce will occupy the
I mayor's chair upon certain conditions, including ,nne that he is paid a
salary ; but the people of Grand
Forks will emphatically say next
Thursday that he will not occupy
I that chair upon any conditio i.
Grand Forks think the honor con-
I nectcd with the office amply repays
I the occupant of the mayor's chair,
and the city has not yet reached
that stage—or has passed it—when a
professional politician can hold, the
reins of government of her civic' af-
I fairs.
Murderer Bell, of Phoenix, will be
hanged at Kamloops next Friday ;
but some of the municipal candi

'ihe Mayor and Aldermen of thc City
of Grand Forks:
Gentlemen,—I have examined the
books and  vouchers of  the   City of
Grand Forks for the year  1904, and
herewith present Balance  Sheet, Receipts and Expenditure account, General Revenue account, Special Revenue
account, Local Improvement Revenue
■account and School Operating account.
The Balance Sheet shows the gross
liabilities of the City at December 81st
to be $234,307.75; of which $193,500
is for Debentures sold, $18,150 for
Local Improvement Debentures, $17,-
150 for loan from the Eastern Townships Bunk, who hold as collateral security for this loan $28,800 City of
Columbia Debentures, which is $4,-
000 less than on 1st January, 1904,
they having sold $4,000 during the
year at 85, and credited the proceeds,
viz., $3,400, to the loan.
During the year the City repurchased $5,000 Local Improvement Debentures.
' The Assets are stated as shown in
the books, but there is nothing shown
for Street Improvements, Smelter Sul -
sidy, Kettle Valley Subsidy and Hospital, yet Debentures were issued for
these, and they appear amongst the
liabilities. This accounts for the liabilities of the City exceeding the assets hy the sum of $18,213.12.
The Receipts and Expenditure account s' ows the actual receipts aud
disbursements of the City for the year,
and need no explanation, but the General Revenue account shows the gross
amount Collectable during the year for
general purposes and the profits on
Waterworks and Electric Light, which
amount to $3,786,13 on Waterworks,
and $9,095.10 on electric light without charging depreciation, which strictly speaking should be done. This
shows a return ou the original i ut ay
as shown by the books of 4.77 per cent
for Waterworks and 22.08 per cent
for the electric light. These results
are arrived at after charging the City
$2,595 for street lighting for the year,
and charging the various departments
for lamps used, and $S64 for hydrants.
The monthly power bill has been apportioned as to 70 per cent for electric
light and 30 per cent for water.
The School Operating account shows
that the school costs the city $2,696.39

$1,308.19) for the year. Against this
there was a levy made of 2 mills for
school purposes, which, when all is collected, will produce about $2,000.
The Local Improvement Revenue
account shows that$7,140.01 was levied for local improvement, of whioh
$1,344 was required for debenture interest, and $5,508.24 for. sinking fund,
leaving a surplus of $287.77.
I must call your attention to the
fact that monies received for local improvement should bo kept separately
altogether from the general funds. No
attempt has been made to do this, and
I mast impress upon you the necessity
of doing this in future. As more
money was expended during 1904 on
local improvement than was collected,
no great harm has been done this year,
but what has happened in previous
years I am unable to say, us that does
not come under my jurisdiction.
The General Revenue account shows
that tho levy for general purposes was
$13,099.49 more than was required,
but the Special Revenue levy was not
enough for debenture interest and sinking fund by $11,800.01. I must call
your attention very strongly to this
matter, as you are not complying to
the by-laws regarding the amount to
be set aside for sinking fund.
The amount which according to the
by-laws should be in the sinking fund
at tho present time is $37,594.02 for
ordinary debentures, and $11,454.00
for local improvement debentures.
There is actually in the Eastern Townships Bunk, the Royal Bank and the
Toronto Trusts and Guarantee Com-
pano$16,170.72 for ordinary deben
tures, and nothing for local improvement debentures, which is a shortage
of 8J21.413.30 and $11,454.99, respectively, in all $32,868.29, but the City
is owed a considerable amount of taxes
to offset this.
I might say that only $1,116.48
was paid into the sinking fund during
the year 1904.
I have opened accounts in the ledger
for General Taxes and Special Taxes
for the year 1904. This has not been
done in previous years, but I must impress upon you that this must be done
in future, and separate bank accounts
must also be kept for General and
Special Cash.

THE HAN WHO WORK HARD
Perseverance and will-' ower ha must
have, but whether he has strength and
vigor is another consideration. Hard
working men usually have irritable
nerves and should fortify their systems with a coursi of Frrrorore a
tonic that rebuilds and revitalizes beyond all telling. It's just wonderful
the strength'that Ferrozone imparts to
broken down men. It forms new

there was tiredness and lassitude, Ferrozone establishes a reserve of energy
and vim. Try Ferrozone—price' 50c

WHY GO 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 tbe Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest Bcenery 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 I'ike City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with nil trains eust
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair curs,
standard and tourist sleepers, n perfect dining car service, and nlso
personally conducted excursion cars,
each ill 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.

The Strength of Jef(er«on.
Jefferson was tbat one nearest to
genius who has lived In tbe White
Bouse. He was a philosopher, a
statesman, a scholar, a linguist, an
artist and a scientist. He drew plans
as an architect, Invented the first furrow turning plow, and last, though not
best, played on tbe fiddle. He sent
Hce from Italy, sneaking It out of
Milan in bis coat pockets, contra tor-
mam statuti, and made tbe savannas
of Carolina and Georgia a source of
food supply. He did many notable
things. Among others, be lifted 1,000
pounds with his bare bands and gained
the title of "tbe strong man of Albemarle" in a region where men were
strong.—A. H. Lewis In Metropolitan
Magazine.
The Child That Wann't Verr Pretty.
Two Germantown women were recently calling oh a new neighbor, and
while awaiting her appearance a little
girl came Into the room, evidently bent
upon the rescue of a doll recently abandoned there. Naturally she was viewed 'with some curiosity, and one of tbe
callers, secure in the child's obviously
tender age, spelled a low voiced comment:
"Not very p-r-e-t-t-j*."
: To  ber  horror,  tbe small   maiden
.paused on the threshold and, fixing a
contemptuous eye upon tbe culprit, re-'
marked, with lofty composure: j
"No, not very p-r-e-t-t-y, but rather
i-m-a-r-t!"

A T.wi ot Violin Maker..
The only place in the world where
