Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, June 6, 1905
Issued Twice a Week
Mayor Says Police and Electrical Departments Can Dispense With One Man
And Intends to Renew Fight
for a Reduction of Civic
Expenses
The regular bi-weekly session of
the city council was held in the
council chamber last night, Mayor
Hammar presiding. Aid. McCallum, Brown, Henniger, Crossen and
Hutton were present.
A communication was received
from Fred Russell, through his attorneys, Clement & Spence, asking
the council to grant a rebate* on the
Victoria hotel license, as the house
had been closed for some time on account of the recent fire. The matter was laid over till the next meet
ing. ..
Poundmaster Woodhead gent in a
communication asking the council
to recompense him for the cost of
the feed for a horse, which he claimed
was required in his official capacity.
Laid on table.
A communication .was read from
■ the Kettle River Lumber company,
drawing the council's attention to
the fact that they had a contract to
furnish the city with all the lumber
required, and that the city had recently obtained lumber from other
sources. Aid. McCallum said that
the lumber had been purchased elsewhere through a mistake, and he
made a motion, which carried, that
in future the city comply with the
contract.
A communication was read from
the mayor of Kamloops. asking the
co-operation of the Grand* Forks
council in the organization of a municipal league of Brithish Columbia
cities. The scheino was favored by
the mayor and a number of the aldermen because it was thought that
an act giving incorporated municipalities the right to tax railway property within their corporate limits
might be forced through the
legislature by such an organization.
The clerk was instructed U> reply to
the communication, stating that the
council had taken the matter under
careful consideration.
A communication from H. W.
Warrington, of the Kettle Valley
line, in reference to the company's
water main in the Ruckle addition,
was referred to the water and light
committee.
Tho following accounts wero ordered paid:

Mayor Hammar stated that he did
not think all the burden of keeping
the bridges free of logs would fall on
the city. An effort should be made
to recover the amount paid out for
this work from the Yale-Columbia
Lumber company. The city solicitor said the company was responsi-
{hie for any damage done by its logs.
On motion, the clerk wns instructed
to send a bill for work at the First
street bridge to the lumber company.
The treasurer's report for May was
read, received and ordered filed.
j Aid. McCallum and Brown, of the
cemetery committee, reported progress. They were confident *that
sufficient land could be purchased
at the}-,, present burying grounds at
a reasonable price.
Aid. Henniger, of the Doard of
works, was afraid that all the available funds for street improvements
would be need to break up the log
jam at the First street bridge, thus
leaving Winnipeg avenue unprovided for.
Aid. Hutton, of the water and
light committee, reported that the
mayor had suspended the city electrician on his return to the city, as
Mr. Waterston had failed to make
proper arrangements for a substitute
during his absence. A rather heated
debate ensued between the mayor
and A Id. Brown on this subject. Mr.
Hammar said he had been amply
justified in the course he had taken,
as Mr. Waterston had left town
without making arrangements with
anyone to do his work. Moreover,
he had pledged himself to reduce
expenses. It had been demonstrated during Mr. Waterston's absence
that the police and electrical departments could be operated with one
less man.
Aid. Brown said he was also in
favor of reducing expenses, but
thought the cut could be made in
thc police department.
Chief Savage was present, and said
that he had not been asked by
Waterston to do his work.
Waterston said he thought everything had been properly arranged.
A sharp debate took place between
the mayor and Mr. Waterston. Mr.
Hammar said he had been abused
by Waterston both in street corner
confabs and through the Gazette.
He thought a city employee should
show more respect to the officials of
the city.
Aid. Brown moved, seconded by
Aid. Henniger, that Mr. Waterston
be reinstated, and that no further
action be taken until the chairman
of the water and light committee re-
tnrns to the city.
The mayor had no objection to
the adoption of the resolution, but
said he intended to fight to thc bitter
end for a reduction of expenses. A
saving of 81500 a year could be
made in the two departments, and
it was the duty of the council, in
other to do justice to thc ratepayers,
to make this cut.
Aid. McCalluin thought there had
been a misunderstanding all around,
and the best thing to do would he to
lay the matter over till the chairman of the water and light committee reiurns to tho city. •
On motion of Aid. Brown and
Crossen, a recommendation to tho
police commissioners was adopted
to the effect that the city will refuse
to pay for the maintenance of the
chief's horse after thc first of next
month.
Aid. McCallum reported that the
police commissioners had held a
meeting during the afternoon, and
had decided to reduce the force to
one man. He thought that this action might have some bearing on the
present controversy in the electrical
department.
Aid.' Brown  reported  tbat  the
lawn sprinkling regulations were being violated. He thought people
doing so should be made examples of.
Aid. Brown was granted leave to
introduce his tax sale by-law, which
was reav a first and second time,
and then considered and passed in
committee of the whole, after which
the rules were suspended and it
passed its third reading.
The council then adjourned.

and a short afternoon session was

The event of the convention, in
this city, occurred in Eagles' hall last
night, when a musical entertainment and banquet was tendered the
delegates and visitors by the local
aerie. President Sheads, who presided, delivered a happy address of
welcome. Deputy Grand President
Von Rt.ein responded on behalf of
the visitors, thanking the local aerie
for the many courtesies extended.
He praised the beauty of the city and
its environments, and predicted ll
prosperous future for this section of
the province.
The literary portion of thc program consisted of piano and violin
solos   by   Misses Manly and Eyre,
songs by little Miss Tilley, piano
solos by A. B. W. Hodges, and songs
and recitations by other well known
local talent All the numbers were
well received, and were heartily applauded.
Prompty at 11 o'clock the order
was given to prepare the banquet
board, and in an amazingly short
time Chef Martin Dufour and his
eight uniformed assistants had
transformed the tables, set in the
shape of a square, into a picture of
loveliness—whetting the appetite as
well as pleasing to the eye. Carnations and potted plants were distributed in great profusion around
the board, and the myriad of electric lights gave a splendor to the
scene that will live long in memories
of those who caBt admiring eyes on
it. The tables literally groaned un-
de'rtheir heavy loads of palatable edibles, consisting of Durkee dressing,
sliced tomatoes, suprime of chicken
a la stuffed, cold ham, French olives,
cold prime ribs of beef, dressed lettuce and schrimps, Orossen & Black-
well's mixed pickles and chow-chow,
green onions and radishes, mayon-
aise of lobster, potato salad, Saratoga chipped potatoes, assorted cakes,
Edam cheese, ice cream and straw-
berriei, oranges and nuts. Plates
were laid for over one hundred, but
the table had to be set a second time
before all those present could be accommodated. Altogether, about
J 50 guests had occasion to praise Mr.
Dufour's culinary art. Everybody
said it was the best banquet ever
served in the city, and by directing
it Mr. Dufour gained sudden fame
as the first chef of the city.
After the table had been removed
the presiding officer called on Mr.
Thomas'Taylor for a speech. Mr.
Taylor spoke briefly, but to the
point. He thanked the Grand
Forks aerie for the splendid entertainment and numerous kindnesses
extended the visitois. Grand Forks,
he said, was one of the prettiest
places in the province, and would
before long become one of the smartest-cities in the interior. "The
Workingman" was then sung by
one of the delegates, and Mr. Bunting also favored the audience with a
song. A. P. Shea sang "The Gunner From Galway," and was much
applauded. Judge Cochrane closed
the program by rendering one of his
well known recitations. It was exactly 12:30 when the gathering broke
up. Everybody expressed themselves as being delighted with tho
evening's entertainment.
Business sessions of the aerie were
held this forenoon and afternoon.
At 3:45 p.m. about 200 delegates
and visitors left for I'hoenix in two
special coaches. Immediately on
arrival in that camp, the excursionists will be shown through the workings of the Granby mines. Tonight
the visitors will be entertained at
a banquet by the I'hoenix aerie. A
special train will bring the party
back to this city about 12 o'clock
tonight.
The business of the convention
will be wound up tomorrow by the
election of officers and the selection
of a meeting place for next year.
An inspection of the Granby smelter
is also one of the features of tomorrow's program.
The convention is a great success,
and the delegates express them-
selvos as being delighted both
with thc city and thc hospitality of
the local aerie t

TUESDAY, JUNE 6, 1905
R. F. Green, commissioner of lands
and works, gives notice, re the South
African war land grant act, that
grants made to volunteers are subject to the condition that such lands
shall have been selected by the
grantees before July 1, 1905, and
that application for such lands must
be filed at a government office before that day.
A Rhinclander, Wis., chemist has
produced a liquid which is 11,000
times stronger than the best quality
of beer, and one drop of it placed in
a large beer glass and filled with ice
water produces a glass of beer of the
finest quality. A few gallons of this
concentrated liquid emptied into
Christina lake would add attractiveness as a summer resort for old
topers to that body of water—or
beer.
The quarter century commemorative number of the Kamloops Sentinel has been received. It is printed
in magazine form, consisting of nearly one hundred pages; is profusely
illustrated with half-tone engravings,
and the descriptive articles contain a
veritable mint of information concerning the early history of the interior of the province.
The Ladies of the Maccabeas will
give an ice cream social and progressive whist party in Eagles hull
next Thursday evening. All friends
of thc order are cordially invited to
attend.
Those Annoying Blackheads.
External applications will never remove pimples or blackheads. Only by
stimnlating circulation and purifying
the blood can it be done. For quick,
sure release from these pests use Ferrozone; it drives all humors from the
blood, makes the skin healthy, tones
up the system. With the pure nutritious blood made by Ferrozone it's impossible to suffer from any skin disease. You'll have a smooth, delightful
skin, healthy color and beautiful com-
_ plexion by using Ferrozone—^and you
will feel immensely better as well.

wife, for the Portland fair. They
will also attend the grand lodge of
Odd Fellows at Vancouver, Wash.,
which is in session this week, Mr.
Ellsperman being a past* grand master of that order for the state of

Mr. Ellspernian's absence.
Chas. Peterson, of tho Owl, left

will open a saloon provided he secures a license.
What Causes Snoring?
When asleep, people that snore
breathe through the mouth instead ot
the nostrils, which are choked with
catarrh. Just use Catarrhozone before retiring and you'll quickly cure
the snoring habit. By destroying the
cause of catarrh and healing the membranes, Catarrhozone makes a complete cure in every case; it cleans the
nostrils, stops the discharge and pi-events dropping in the throat in a few
minutes. Nothing so pleasant or certain to cure snoring, catarrh or colds
as Catarrhozone—that's worth remembering.  H. E. Woodland, druggist.

The Deal Will Go Through for
Seven Million Eight Hundred Thousand,
Giving Nearly Two Million Dollars for Developing Lower
Levels of Properties
A Montreal dispatch says that the
amalgamation of the Rossland and
Trail properties will go through at
$7,800,000, giving $1,800,00J of
working capital, to be expended
chiefly in developing the lower
levels. All the parties concerned
agreed on the terms, which only require ratification at statutory meetings of the shareholders to become
operative. As G. S. Waterlow controls sufficient LeRoi proxies, and
T. G. Blackstock sufficient War
Eagle and Centre Star, and President Shaughnessy has sanctioned
the arrangement as far as C.P.R interests are concerned, there is little
doubt now that this, the largest and
most important deal ever made in
the Kootenay, is consummated.
How to Cure Toothache
Any aching tooth can be relieved
instantly with Nerviline. Fill the
cavity with batting dipped in Nerviline and rub the gums with Nerviline
also. If the face is swollen and sore
bathe the painful parts with Nerviline
and cover with a flannel. This can't
fail because Nerviline kills the pain
outright and prevents it from returning. Stronger, qiiiker, more satisfactory than any other liniment, Pol-
son's Nerviline has been the largest
seller for nearly fifty years; try it yourself.    H. E. Woodland, druggist.
