No. 12
Discussed Salaries
Board of Trade Elects Officers for Ensuing Year.
A Call for a Protest Against the Assessment Act Received
From  Victoria—Imposes Extraordinary  Taxes
on Merchants and Manufacturers.
The adjourned annual general
meeting of the Grand Forks board of
trade was called to order at 8 o'clock
last Wednesday evening in the city
hall by President Cayley. A large
and representative body of business
men were present, and a number of
new names were added to the membership roll.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting bad been read and approved,
and the members hnd paid their
quarterly dues, the secretary read
the following resolution:
Moved by W. K. C. Manly, seconded by A. W. Faaser:
Whereas, the city council has
passed a by-law to remunerate the
mayor of Grand Forks and the aldermen of the city by giving tbe mayor
$300, nnd the aldermen $3 a day
fur each regular meeting attended hy
them; and wher(ns, the alderman
who introduced the by-law only contemplated remunerating the mayor,
and the amendment including aldermen was introduced in committee of
the whole against the will of the alderman who introduced the by-law,
ami passed in spite of his protests;
and whereas, there is some doubt of
the legality of so amending a bylaw, and action has been threatened
against the city by certain of the
ratepayers; and whereas, this board
considers the time inadvisable for
incurring the expense of a conteste 1
lawsuit and the expense of paying
the* remunerations above set out;
Therefore be resolved, that this
board of trade hereby request tbe
eity council to reconsider the said
by-law, and tbat the secretary be
instructed to write to the .mayor and
council requesting them to repeal
the same.
The discussion on tbis resolution
took up the greater part of the evening. Mayor Burrell was the first
speaker. He thought that, in order
to preserve harmony In the board,
the proper place to discuss a resolution of this nature would be at a citizens' meeting. There were a number of things to be explained in connection with the salary by-law, he
said, which could not be fully gone
into at a meeting of tho board owing
to lack of tiroe-
W. K. C. Manly said the board of
trade was the proper to handle the
subject under discussion. Tbe members were the heaviest ratepayers in
the city, and any subject affecting
the city finances naturally interested
them. Taking the present condition of thc city treasury into consid-
tion, he did not see why the members of the council should not donate
their services to the city. He himself served two terms in the council
gratis during the early days of the
city, when there was twice as much
work to  look aftor as at present.
H. C. Hanington, P. T. McCallum
and a,number of oihers alsospoke,
the majority of them supporting Mr.
Manly's views in favor of the resolution.
After a thorough discussion, final
action on the resolution was postponed for one week in order to give
the city solicitor a chance to pass on
the legality of the salary by-law.
The following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: President, W.
K. C. Manly; first vice-president, K.
C. MacDonald; second vice-president, C. A. S. Atwood; secretary,
Donald McCallum; treasurer, Geo.
Clark; executive council, M. Burrell, N. McLellan, A. W. Fraser, P.
T. McCallum, L. P. Eckstein, Geo.
Rutherford, W. B. Bower, Jeff Davis,
J. Hammar, H. C. Hanington, Fred
Clark, Wm. Spier, John Donaldson,
H. E. Woodland.
A special meeting of tbe board of
trade was held Thursday afternoon
to take action on the following teli
gram, received from the seoretary of
the Victoria board of trade:
"President Board of Trade, Grand
Forks:—New assessment law im
poses extraordinary taxes upon merchants and manufacturers. This
board is protesting and asking for
delay until the law can be eonsid
e-cd by the interests affected, and
urges you to instruct your representative by wire to insist upon delay. Immediate action is necessary. ''
Oo motion, the following telegram
was ordered to be immediately sent
to Geo. A. Fraser:
"Grand Forks board of trade joins
Victoria board in urging delay of assessment bill.
"W. K. C. Mani.y, President."
The following loiter was also ordered to be forwarded:
"Geo. A. Fraser, Victoria:—Tbe
executive council of the board of
trade has just held a meeting nnd
wired. As stated in telegram, which
telegram I now confirm, the board
of trade will probably back up any
representations made by the boards
of Victoria and Vancouver. In the
meantime wc think the bill should
be kept in committee of the whole
until tbe boards of trade of the province have time to make their representations.
"Donald McCallum, Sec."
J. Ehrlich, manager for P. Burns
& Co. at Greenwood, made a business trip to thc city this week.

it was soon extinguished.

The occasion will be made a notable

A Toronto dispatch of the the 7th
inst. says:
"J. B. McArthur, K.C., who at
one time was a leading lawyer in
'Winnipeg, died at thc Elliot house
this morning. Mr. McArthur was
54 years of age. He studied law
with tbe firm of Crother & Tilt, afterwards Mulock, Tilt & McArthur.
He retired from the firm in 1SS2 in
order to go to Winnipeg, where he
was one of the pioneers, and built
up a very large practice, which he
carried on for several years in partnership with Hugh John Macdonald
and Stuart Tupper.
"For the past ten years Mr. Mc-
Arinur has been prominently connected with the mining interests in
the Kontenays in British Columbia.
Wben he first went to British Columbia he became a resident of Kaslo, Where he practised law. When
tbe Rossland boom started he left
Kaslo and went to the Golden Ciiy,
where he had considerable to do
with the mining interests of tbat
place. For a time be was thc attorney for F. Aug. Heinze, principally,
however, in the capacity of legal advisor. For the past four years he
has confined most of his attention
to his mining interests in the Boundary and Similkameen sections. He
made frequent trips to tho  east on
financial business connected with
the mining deals with which he was
intciesled. Mr. MeArthur had unbounded faith in the mineral resources of British Columbia, nnd had
he lived to see some of Lis larger
deals carried out he would in a few
years have made a large fortune.
"It wns said by his friends hero
that he suffered severe financial reverses by the collapse of thc British
Columbia mining boom in 1,897)
which has taken him ever since to
recover from."
Mr. McArthur wns well known in
Grand Forks, and tbe news of his
death will be learned with sorrow.
He wns nt one time connected with
the Columbia Townsite company;
also tbe Columbia Stage Line, running between Marcus and this city.
He made a liberal donation for the
erection of the Baptist church in Columbia. He was a resident of the

Kit: IUY,   DECEMBER 11, 1903
lx our last issue we expressed our
opinion  on  the salary by-law, and
we believe that !•!' per cent of   the
ratepayers  in   this   city  share our
views on this subject.    In fact, The
Six during tbe Inst couple   of (lays
has come in for much favorable comment from the citizens in general fo~
the stand it has tnken in this matter.
It is to be regretted that the by-law,
ns   amended, was passed, as it bas
certainly caused considerable bitterness on  the part ol   a majority of
the ratepayers towards the members
oi the council who voted for it. This
bitterness   has reached a very high
tension.   Last    Wednesday • N. I).
Mcintosh, n heavy  ratepayer, instituted proceedings against the city to
have the by-law  annulled.    Papers
in connection with these proceedings
have been served on tbe mayor and
city clerk, and Mr. Mcintosh, backed
by others, will light Ihe ease to a
finish.   Under these circumstanci
it appears to us that the only peaceful and satisfactory solution   of the
matter would he for tbe  promoters
of   the   obnoxious by-law to reconsider   it   and   consent  to its withdrawal at the next  regUlai  meeting
of tbe city  council.    At a  meeting
of   the   hoard  of trade Wednesday
evening tbe matter came up for discussion, and a resolution w<s introduced calling on the aldermen to re-
pial   the   by-law.    Action   on the
resolution   was   deferred   until the
next meeting of the board, in order
to give the city solicitor an opportunity to render an opinion as to the
constitutionality of the by-law. But
the   sentiment   of  the  board   was
uninanimousiy in fnvor of the resolution, nnd it will   undoubted   be
passed nt thc next meeting if the bylaw is not annulled in the meantime.
It is sincerely hoped that the matter
will be amicably settled at tbe council meeting next Monday evening.

Something more than a warm heart
and an open hand is needed In dispensing charity. A Boston woman whe
wanted to be generous found this to be
true In nt least one case, related in the
"Youth's Companion."
She had been giving to a poor family,
eon sis ting of a molher and three grown
daughters, a regular allowance of six
dollars a week until the daughters
should  find  employment.
The eldest daughter called at the
house every Saturday to receive this
allowance. One week she appeared on
Thursday, and wanted to know If it
would be "quite convenient" Cor her
benefactress to advance the money that
Jay instead of waiting until Saturday.
"We are out of fuel and flour, and
the man will call this evening for the
weekly rent, and we haven't a penny to
give him," she said.
"How does It happen that you are tn
this condition this week, when the six

Too Much Parent
IN these days of strenuous parentage, it may not be amiss to suggest mildly that there may be, in
the constitution of a family, such
a thing as too much parent. Time was
when being a parent was Incidental to
'other business in life. Our grandfathers broug-ht up children, a dozen at n
time, with a careless familiarity that
Lakes away the modern breath. Each
of the dozen was disciplined and duly
chastened. They were whipped when
they told lies, and occasionally when
they did not. They learned to read at
four; were put to work at five, as a
matter of course; and developed, in due
time, the stuff that men are made of.
There was never any particular fuss
about it. The larger the family, the
more whippings it took. But there
were always enough to go around, and
no one the worse for it. The advertisement, "Boy missing. Run away
from home," was not an uncommon
feature of the weekly newspaper. But
of the remnant who had the courage to
stay at home and'grow up, it may be
said that they made admirable citizens. They had the rare privilege of
passing their childhood and youth In
the presence of men and women who
had other and more important business
In life than that of belnT parent to offspring. They grew up With a chastened
sense of their own unimportance in
trie scheme of being, and a philosophic
expectation of taking the hard knocks
of life as they oame.
We have changed all that. We nave
listened to the voice of Fror-bel, "Let us
play with our ch.ldren;" and to the
educational moralist, "A father should
be his boy's best friend;" and to our
most famous and most unpractical
poet, "The child is father to the man:"
and the whole business of child-raising
Is turned other end to. We no longer
raise them by the dozen. One or two
at a time is as much as we dire venture, and very cautiously a»t that. We
study the development and take note:
on the bumps, phrenological; the ou
kind the modern child Is never altowe
to have. We agonize over our relation
to ills moral growth, and drop tentative, trembling seeds into the ground
of his being, and exchange specimen!
If anything comes of It. The result,
as a whole, is not, it must be admitted,
altogether unpleaslng. There is something aibout the well-born, well-bred,
wholesome chllu of to-day th:'t makes
glad the eye and the heart. But the
poor parent) We-protest that he has
lever had a chnnce In life. Ten to one
,ils own parents belonged to the old
school, and dlfli Ipltued him within an
Inch of Life. And now hla Children belong to the now. He is ground between the upp^r and the nether stone.
Only In scattered, p:erlous moments
does he dare call himself his own. Late
In the evening, perhaps, when the all-
Important child has been adequately
played with and ei.cour iyed and developed and put to Oed on his hygienic
■lllow, there comes a moment when
the exhausted pan-nt may sit down before the lire and draw a comfortable,
grOWn-Up breath, and gather strength
and wisdom for the morrow.
As we watch him, we are reminded
of the pleasant old gentleman who,
across the reception-plate, Is accosted
by the genial young girl; "After all,
sir, there's nothing so delicious as tt.e
widg of a chicken, Is theieV" And
the old gentleman: "I don't know, my
dear. When I was young the old people always ate th* wings, and now I
am old the young people eat th.-m. I
have never tasted the wing of a [•hick-

AN  honest  man  entered   the stor<
of a clothier one day, and    in
reply to the query ns  to  what
could  be done  for  him  on  thai
particular   occasion,   he   assumed     a
numble pose nnd replied:
"Sir, r wish to furnish you proof that
I Bim what I Dm."
"I cannot doubt your honesty," said
bhe clothier, "but still proofs ar«
proofs, nnd you may submit your documents."
"Do you remember that I was It.
your store six months fiffo?"
"Alas! I do not; but you look like a
man of truth, and I will not gainsay
"I was here, sir, nnd bought this
suit of clothes of you. It had been
marked down from fifteen dollars to
eight dollars and fifty cents.'*
"Yes, I recognize the cloth, and I
grieve to think that I lost six dollars
and fifty cents on that suit. I had to
mark them down to make room for
the quick-lunch business on t/he other
"You warranted the dye," continued
the honest man, "and there has 'been
no fading- or crocking:. I cannot say
that  you  lied  to me."
"And  the price was  right?"
"It was. I hug the delusion that I
found a bargain."
"Then what is the cause of thy com

is that nfter I had Tot miles away I

"A ten-dollar bill In the pocket of
an eight-do! lar-and -fifty- eefit suit,"
mused the clothier. "Here, Ikey, come
forward and explain."
"I—-I wad tempted," said the young
man, ns he trembled before his employer.
"So? Then It was you who substituted a ten for a, twenty, and made
this honest man a journey to get his
just dues? no, bring- me n new, crisp

I didn't want tu lose him, so I begun to whistle him back, and, if you'll
believe me, ns I was a-sktln' there,

goose was glttln' In line with thet fox.
'By thunder!' 'a I, *if I ean git 'cm in
