Fourth Year-No. 67
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, June 20,1905
Issued Twice a leek
Longest Sessi-bn  Since the
Present Government Assumed Power
Mayor Makes a Hard Fight
for Economy, but Is
Outvoted
The council meeting last night
was the longest that has beet) held
during the present city government's
term, it being midnight before adjournment was reached. Mayor
Hammar presided, and all the Aldermen were present.   '
A communication was read from
the J. A. Fairbanks company, notifying the council that the new city
pump had been shipped.
A communication was read from
Postmaster General Mulock, asking
for data concerning the telephone
systems in this locality. Referred
to the finance committee.
A communication from the Colville band, asking for an engagement for the 1st of July, was laid on
the table, as there is no likelihood-
of  a   Dominion day celebration in
* the city this year.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Crossen, the council granted a reasonable rebate on the Victoria hotel
license for the time which the house
has been closed.
A communication was received
from the police commissioners, stating that the board had decided to
dispense with the service* of A. E.
.Savage as police on the 30th inst'.,
and that they had failed to concur
in the council's recommendation to
cut off the feed for the chief of police's horse. Aid. Brown thought it
would have been better if the' commissioners had not specified the man
, to be discharged.   The city solicitor
explained that the commissioners
had full power to deal with police
matters. The only recourse the
council had, in the event of the
board saddling too heavy expenses
. on the city, was an appeal to the
lieutenant-governor in council. On
motion of Aid. Crossen and Hutton,
the report was received and adopted.
A communication was read from
the license commissioners,suggesting
theadvisability of,the councilamend-
ing the bottle and wholesale liquor
license by-law. Aid. Henniger desired to know why and how they
wanted the by-law amended. Aid.
McCallum stated that a committee
of retail liquor dealers had waited
on the commissioners, and complained that the holders of bottle
licenses were allowed to compete
with the retail dealers. The commissioners had decided to act cautiously
and to thoroughly investigate the
charges. Wm. Penrose, of the Lion
Bottling Works, was present, and
positively denied retailing liquors on
his premises. All cities, he said,
had a by-law similar to the one in
force here. The mayor stated that
a customer could purchase a bottle
of liquor, be handed a glass and go
\t in back room and drink the contents
of the bottle, practically creating a
bar-room on the premises. If the
present by-law permitted this act, it
should be amended    Aid.  McCal-
• lum said the commissioners  could
get no evidence that the by-law was
being violated. He asked Mr. Penrose how a wholesale license would
I work in the hitter's business. Mr.
Penrose said it wouldn't work at all.
It would simply be a case of getting
out of business. Mr. McCallum
gave notice that he would bring in a
by-law on the subject.
The usual number of accounts
were ordered paid.
The cemetery committee reported
progress. Aid. McCallum thought
two acres of the present cemetery
could be purchased by the city at a
reasonable price. Objections had
been raised by property owners to
extending the grounds farther west.
The mayor added the names of P.
T. McCallum and E. Spraggett to the
committee, and on motion they were
confirmed by by the council.
Aid. Henniger, chairman of the
hoard of works, recommended moving the small bridge—now in bad
condition—over the ditch near Mr.
Fisher's, from its present location to
Seventh street. This change was
authorized. There were also loose
boards in the sidewalks all over town
that should be nailed down.
£Ald. Henniger stated that Winnipeg avenue; the main thoroughfare
ofthe city, from J. B. Henderson's
residence to, the C.P.R. tracks, was
in a,..worse condition than any piece
of road between Bossburg and Republic. In fact, it was nothing but
a trail. The mayor said the street
was in a bad condition, and should
be graded. Aid. Clements thought
that a definite grade should be established first, so that whatever
work is done on the street would be
of a permanent nature. Aid. Brown
coincided in this view, adding that
the work should be done by contract. Mr. Henniger said it would
take about $3000 to do the work according to an engineer's plans, and
the city could only spend about$500
on the street. Mr. Brown suggested
a visit to the street. The mayor said
the council would be no wiser after
viewing the work, which should be
done as soon as possible. On motion of Aid. Brown, the bourd of
works was authorized to engage an
engineer to establish a grade, and to
bring in a profile and an estimate of
the cost of the work.
Aid. McCullum reported that the
police commissioners had decided
to dismiss A. E. Savage from the
police force on the 30th inst., and
that after that date he would only
receive half a salary as chief of the
fire department.
Aid. Brown—Is there any other
work that Savage can do? Has the
council anything in view?
Mayor Hammar said that when he
was first elected Mr. Savage had
told him that he wished to be chief
of the fire department, but would
not accept the position as chief of
police. If Mr. Savage was to be retained at ull, the council should find
him a position where his salary
would be the same as it is now. He
had suspended Electrician Waterston on his return and had told him
not to go to work until the council
reiustated him. He thought Mr.
Savage was well qualified to fill Mr.
Waterston's position. Personally
be had nothing against Mr. Waterston and his work, but he thought
bis services could be dispensed with,
and that Mr. Savage could do his
work.
Aid. Clements said Mr. Waterston
had been granted a leave of absence
with the understanding i hat Messrs.
Savage and Reid were to do his
work, but later it transpired tbat
Savage had not agreed to double up
on the work at a single salary. The
committee had afterwards endeavored to get an electrician from the
Granby smelter and other places,
but had failed. He questioned
whether Mr. Savage was competent
to do the work, otherwise he had no
serious objections to the change.
He thought, however, that Mr.
Waterston had gone away in good
faith, and he wouldn't like to take
the responsibility of the change, although he believed in economy. He
had advocated a salary of $100 per
month for the electrician at tbe beginning of the year.
Aid. Henniger—-Are you satisfied
that Mr. Waterston is thoroughly
capable of running the electrical
plant?
Aid. Clement—He has proved
himself so heretofore.
Aid. Brown fell in line with the
the views expressed by Mr. Clements.
Mayor Hammar asked the chairman, of the water and light committee if Mr. Waterston's time was fully
employed.
Mr. Clement—He could do more
more work if he had it to do.
Mr. Hammar thought the lines
and equipment might be kept in
better condition if Mr. Waterston
had any spare time. Mr. Savage's
services as fire chief entitled him to
first consideration. He now had
the department in first-class' shape.
Clements—Savage is a very handy
man and should be retained if possible. Although Chief of Police
Sheads is a good friend of mine, I
would rather see him dismissed, if
the commissioners can see their way
clear to do so.
Aid. Brown—Savage would fill
the position of chief of police to the
satisfaction of everybody.
Mayor Hammar—If you can show
me wherein Mr. Sheads has been in
efficient, the commissioners might be
induced to reconsider their action.
But Aid. Clements and Brown had
nothing against the chief of police:
Aid. McCallum stated that some
time ago it was proposed by the
commissioners to reduce the force if
times got duller, and they had now
decided to cut it down to one man
The most natural thing to do was to
dismiss the man who was only drawing half a salary. He had not been
willing to do anything until Aid.
Clement's return. Enough work
should be given Savage to make up
the $45 per month he received from
the police department. If Waterston's salary was too high, it could
be reduced without working any
special hardship on him.
Henniger said it would be time
enough to look for work for Savage
after the council hail decided to retain Mr. Waterston.
Aid. Crossen said the council
couldn't dictate to the' police commissioners. He thought Savage was
thoroughly competent to do the
city's electrical work. The council
shouldn't lock horns over the question. By all accepted usages of priority and civil service ru^es Mr.
Savage was entitled to the position,
and he .would fill both positions acceptably to the ratepayers. He was
decidedly in favor of tho council reducing expenses.
Aid. Hutton favored a reduction
in the force. He had favored reducing the staff in tl.e city office  to
one clerk, and it had worked satisfactorily. The sale of the ciiy team,
which he had advocated, had saved
tbe corporation $600 during the past
year. No one could tell whether
one man could fill both positions until it was tried. He was one who
was willing to try.
Mayor Hammar said the change
could be tried for thirty days at
least.
Aid. brown wouldn't like to take
the responsibility for the change.
The mayor replied that Mr. Savage had done enough electrical work
for the city to qualify him for the
position.
Aid. Crossen again expressed the
opinion that Savage was competent
to fill the position, and offered the
following resolution, which failed to
receive a seconder: That A. E. Savage be appointed city electrician at
a salary of $105 per month, provided he can show he is capable of
taking charge of the city's electrical
plant, the appointment to take effect
July 1, 1905.

V., V. & E. Charter
The vote on the V., V. & E. railway bill in the house at Ottawa last
Wednesdayjshowed fifty Liberals and
one Conservative for tbe bill, and
forty-two Conservatives and eleven
Liberals against. Among those
against was the minister of justice,
who voted with the eleven. The
minister of railways is in favor of
the bill, but was not present when
the vote was taken. He and three
other Liberals were with a delegation to the premier at the time. The
sub-committee of the railway committee, to which was referred a clause
of the V., V. & F. railway bill, met
on Thursday, and decided to make
a report of the clause as it stands at
present Hon. C. F. Fitzpatrick,
minister of justice, also was present,
and was satisfied with the wording
of the clause from a legal standpoint.
The report will be> presented at the
next meeting of the committee. The
question of policy will not come before the sub-committee, for that will
be discussed at the full committee.
The clause restores any rights
\yhich may have lapsed in the bill.

TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 1905
The council meeting last night ap
pears to have demonstrated on thing—
that there is one man too many in the
employ of the city. We are not prepared to say, at present, who the Superfluous official is; but it is a safe
wager that neither the council nor the
ratepayers will be happy until he is
found.

Chills Prove Fatal I
If warmth and circulation are not
promptly restored, chills result in
fatttl pneumonia. This necessitates
keeping Nerviline on hand. Taken in
hot water it breaks up a chill in two
minutes. By rubbing freely over
throat and chest it prevents colds. No
liniment so strong, so penetrating, so
swift to kill pain and inflammation.
Nearly fifty years' record has proved
the value of Poison's Nerviline. You
should get a bottle today. H. E.
Woodland, druggist.
Concluded from First Page.
Aid. Henniger had no favorites
among the city employees. If Waterston was dismissed* he should be
treated like all the other city officials
previously discharged, and given a
month's salary.
Aid. McCallum couldn't see any
sense of dismissing a main who had
given satisfaction to make room for a
man of doubtful ability. *
Aid. Clements said the city had no
moral right to dismiss a man without
cause. It wasn't a square deal, in his
mind. Both men had been employed
by the city about the same length of
time, and it was hard to tell who was
entitled to the most consideration
The easiest way out of the difficulty
would be to appoint Savage chief of
police. He made a motion, which
was seconded by Aid. Brown, asking
the police commissioners to reconsider
Mr. Savage's dismissal.
Aid. McCallum said it had always
been his policy to stand by the heads
of departments. He now stood by the
head of the water and light department. If the matter was referred back
to the commissioners, he would stand
by the head of that department.
The mayor said he was pledged to
reduce expenses. The city offioe was
being run as competently this year
with one man as it was last year with
two. He had cast the decidiug vote
for the present incumbent because he
thought the West end was entitled to
one office. If the resolution was referred back to the commissioners it
was as far as it would ever go. The
chief of police had enough to do without looking after the fire department.
He wae on duty about sixteen hours a
day at present. He thought the electrical and fire departments could be
run by one man, and he would continue to stick up for what he considered was right.
Aid. McCallum offered the following substitute for Mr. Clement's motion: That the chairmen of the board
of works and water and light committee bring in a recommendation at the
next meeting as to what services Mr.
Savage can render the city to make
up the $45 per month, and that Mr.
Waterston's salary be reduced to $105
per month. This substitute was seconded by Aid. Henniger, and on a
vote being taken it was carried. A
vote was then taken on the original
motion, which was lost.
The street sprinkling time was
cut down to 2-J hours in the forenoon
and 2*i- hours in the afternoon.
The tax sale by-law was putthrough
its final stage.
Aid. McCallum gave notice that
he would introduce an amendment to
the bottle liquor license by-law at the
next meeting.
The council then adjourned till next
Monday night.
What Causes Appendicitis
The commonest cause of appendicitis
is constipation. When you require
physic don't use cheap drastic pills—
get Dr. Hamilton's Pills, which
strengthen the stomach, regulate the
bowels and prevent any tendency to
appendicitis. In one day you'll feel
the tremendous benefit of Dr. Hamilton's Pills. By purifying the blood
and cleansing the system they prevent
headaches, lift depression and drive
away weariness. No medicine so successful as Dr. Hamilton's, sold every-
whgrc in 25c boxes with yellow cover;
get the genuine. H. E. Woodland,

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 the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do Jay traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wobd 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 trainB is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion care,
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.

"When rain falls, does it ever
arise again?" asked the professor of
chemistry.
"Yes, sir." '   /
"When?"
"Why, in dew time—"
"That will do, Mr. Smart. You
can sit."
Teacher—How Btupid you are, to
he-sure. Can't multiply H8 by 25.
I'll wager that Charles can do it in
no time.
Abused Pupil—I shouldn't he surprised. They say that fools multiply very rapidly.these days.
A pedagogue told one of his pupils, a son of the Emerald Isle, to
spell -hostility.
"H-o-r-s-e, horse," began Pat.
".Not horsetility," suid the teach-
ei, "but hostility."
"Sure," replied Pat, "an' didn't
ye tell nie the other day not to say
hoss? Be jabers, it'B one thing wid
ye one day and another the-nixt."

Peter Piper had just picked a peck
of pickled peppers. "Reminds me,
somehow," he said, "of Penny packer
preparing to punish the perverse
Pennsylvania papers for printing pert
and provoking pictures." Playfully
pinching Penrose, he plucked a particularly promising perquisite from
the political plum tree and proceeded on his^ promenade.—Chicago
Tribune.
"Lotus wait and see the lady contortionist," said the bachelor in the
sideshow.
"Wouldn't interest me," replied
the benedict. "I see one at home
every day."
"At home?"
"Yes; my wife has one of those
blouses that button at the back."
Caughers, Hawkers, Spiders!
Public expectoration is against the
coumion law, against the laws of health
also. When the throat tickles, that's
the time you need Catarrhozone; it
lothes away the irritation, cuts up
the phlegm and loosens the tight feeling. You'll quickly cure catarrh and
throat trouble with Cutairhozone. It
positively prevents new attacks and
cures catarrh forever and for all time
to time to come. Don't take our word
for it; try Catan'hozono yourself. Once
used you'll be delighted with its pleasant and helpful influence. II. E.
Woodland, druggist.

Tin: Sus is the sole property of its publisher, and no

right out. lie does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
different parties about what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks

Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the ltest
