TWICE-A-WEEK
The City* Council
i        ,
Decided Last Night to Dispose of the
Citjr Team
The Electric Lighting and a Variety of Other Subjects Were
Discussed in a Harmonious Spirit at Last
Evening's Session.
The regular meeting of city council was held in the council chamber
last night. Mayor Hammar, Aid.
Clements, Feeney, Hutton, McCal-'
lum, McLellan and McNee were
present.
A communication was received
from David Woodhead, applying for
the position of poundkeeper.
Chief Savage reported that he bad
examined the opera house, and
found it well provided with exits
and safe in case of fire.
The following report was received
from tbe boark of works, with a letter from J. W. Jones attaahed:
"Upon further investigation, we
find the following figures, which we
present to you for your consideration: Last year's expenses in con-
. nection with' the city team and.
man amounted to $1,511.25, ag follows: Teanistei"; $900; feed for team,
$372; blacksmith account 164.25;
extra labor hire, $175. This does
not include thc bridge and river repair, and as such work is a,yearly
expense we would not recommend
any done at present, but will consider it in our yearly report. Therefore, in our opinion, the team should
be sold, as by so doing the city
would be the better.' off by some
$900. Further, as the city's finances are not any too flush, we would
recommend that no work he done in
this department but what is absolutely needed. Also xfind. attached
offer for team stabling from J. W.
Jones. M. R. Feeney,
F. H. Hutton."
To the Mayor and Council:
Gentlemen—I hereby agree to
put a good team in tho city barn, to
be kept there at night free of charge
to the city. Also, if you see fit to
hire my team and man when needed
at $0 per day, or when short hauls
are wanted my chargo will be 81 per
hour. J. W. Jones.
On motion of Aid. Clements, the
report of the board of works was accepted, and thc board was au-
thprizgd to Bell the team to the best
interests ofithe city.
Aid. McLellan, as chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that the committee had come to the
conclusion that it would be cheaper
to put in small street lights on
Bridge street, near thc 0. P. R. crossing, where they*are now without
street lights, than to put in arc
lamps. He also recommended that
the city purchase a voltmetre, and
some other metres tor use in storeB,
churches, houses, or wherever any
one wanted to use one, as a check en
the afiiount of electricity used. A
general discussion regarding the
city's lighting took place. The
mayor said he would pay for a metre to use in his own house as an ex-
weed. Then he concluded it was
time for him to quit his job, which,
he did, going frqm here to Rossland,
where, it has since been learned, he
tried to dispose of some di the
clothes. It was some time after he
left that the discovery of his cute
manipulations was made, and therefore he ke has quite a start, but as
the police have lost no time in the
chase the chances are he will be apprehended shortly. The express
company will Bpare no means
to locate and punish him. He owed
some $00 to local people, but as be
hjd a month's wages coming, they
will receive their money.
periment, providing the city would
put it in free of cost. At thc end of
two months he would inform the
council as to the result of the experiment. The council could th™
see-if it would pay to put in a metre
system throughout the city. Mr.
McLellan wanted to know if there
could be a plan devised whereby all
the s;reet lights could be turned off
on fiioonlight nights and thus save
a lot of power. The city electrician
informed the council that there
would have to be a new circuit installed in order to do this. It would
not be a satisfactory one, and he.|
would not advice it under any cir-.
cumstances.
On motion of Aid. McCallum,. the
water and light committee was authorized to purchase one voltmetre
and-five other metres, viz., one 20,.
two 30's and two 50's.
On motion of Aid. Feeney, thc
.report of the water and light committee, submitted at tbe Inst noting, was reconsidered, but debate on
the same was postponed until the
next meeting.
David Woodhead was reappointed
pointed poundkeeper without salary.
The following bills were ordered
paid: Granby company, $600*-l
Grand Forks Transfer Co., $10.60;
R, Petrie, $20.80; E. L. Sibley, $2;
E. T. Bank, $199.55; Phoenix

W. H. Storey, a "smooth guy,"
employed as night operator at the
C. P. R. station here for a couple of
months, did up the Dominion Express company to the tune of, $200
before decamping for pastures new.
He stole seven suits of clothes and
eight boxes of cigars that were in
charge of the express company. The
clothes had been ordered by patrons
in this eity from a coast house,
through their traveling tailor; and
were shipped hero c. o. d. For various reasons some twelve suits were
refused, and it was while the express company were awaiting orders
for the disposition of the goods that
Stdrey succeeded in replenishing his
wardrobe at thc expense of the company, and also in providing himself with a supply, of choice Ha-
vanas. After taking the clothes
from their original packages, he substituted therefor old rubbers, cord-
wood, waste paper and other rub
bish to make up a corresponding
weight. Then he proceeded to "make
good" on the cigars. The empty
boxes ho conveniently filled with C.

'I IJESDAY,   FEBRUARY 0, 1904
According to reports from Victoria the McBride government are
try n-* to back down on their railway policy. This is a direct violo-
tion of their pledges, as, when
pressed by the leader of the opposition from time to time, they promised to lay before the house a policy
during the present session. But
now they appear to evade the issue
entirely. It is to be hoped the Liberal members will insist on the
premier bringing before the house
and the people of the province the
policy which be and other members
of the government pledged their constituents before the election. For in-
slance, in this riding aid was promised for a branch upftbc North Fork
■ a distance of fifty miles, to be constructed by tbe Kettle Valley lines.
Geo. A. Fraser, M.L.A., had a personal letter from 'Premier McBride
promising a provincial subsidy for
this hrimch provided the Conservijr
lives were return d to power, and
this was freely us"d to secure votes
in this city: Were the electors hoodwinked into returning McBride and
his party to power? It certainly
looks like it. Mr. Fraser should endeavor to force the, premier's hand
before supplies arc voted, otherwise,
judging from late reports, the railway policy and thc East Kootenay
coal licenses will be shelved until
the next election.
The greatest conflagration in the
United States since the memorable
Chicago fire, which occurred in October, 1871, has swept over the city
of Baltimore, Md., during the last
fo ly eight hours, de.-t o. ing
over seventy-five business blocks,
covering 140 acres of ground, and
causing a property loss which it is
at present impossible to correctly estimate, but which is placed between
one hundred and fifty millions and
three hundred millions of dollars.
The most exceptional, and also the
nio4 fortunate, feature (f the catastrophe w,« that not a single life
was lust and comparatively few people were injurned. Many people
will be left penniless by losing their
all in the lire, and many will be
, thrown out of employment, and
therefore if assistance is sidicitcd it
should be liberally responded to
from all parts of the American continent—even from Grand Forks if
necessary.
slumber us peacefully as a new-born
babe through the long nights of these
turbulent times. And well they
may. They know that once they
have received the appointment their
positions are secure for life.
"What Happened to Jones" is
the puzzle that will be unraveled
tomorrow night. Some of the wise
onefl appear to be certain that they
have already solved the enigma.
They say Jones is going to purchase
the city team, and thus rob the city
council and the local press of a
fruitful source of controversy. Next?
The Phoenix people are making a
strenudns effort to "pull" a customs
house to that city. There is no reason why they should not succeed.
One is certainly needed in that place

the wires hot between now and the
federal election, the chances are they
will make it stick.
Anecdotal.
If war should be declared between
Russia and Japan during the next

to dispatch a special war correspondent to the scene of hostilities in order
to keep abreast of the times and furnish its readers with reliable in-
lorina'.ion from tho far east. Here is a
splendid opportunity for tome
Grand Forks citizen to win "erini-
boii gl iry and undying fame." The
risk to life will be slightly greater
than is incurred on the Grand Forks
police force—but then the emoluments attached to the office will be
more than trebled.

A friend of Edward MacDowell attended a recital given by a mediocre tendi-

During the protracted sessions of the

An old negro living in Carrollton was
taken ill recently, and called in a physician of his race to prescribe for him. But
the old man did not seem to be getting
any better, and finally a white physician
was called. Soon after arriving, Dr. S.	
felt the darkey's pulse for a niument, and
then examined his tongue. "Did your
other doctor take your temperature!"
he asked, "I don't know, tan," he answered, feebly | "I halnt misted anything but my watch as yit, boss."

i The Macgresrors of the Sahara.
Thank heaven, there Is still wimp mystery left in the world. A book with a
title like that of "The Masked Tawar-
ekrf* makes us . grateful that \vi-
(ive now and not some hundred years
hence, when all the tracts of the world
will he accurately mapped and epitomized in gazetteers, when no surprise will
meet the traveler anywhere, when sav*-
age peoples will huve died out or huve
become civilized into shirts nnd Sunday
tiats, and wild beasts will survive only
in stutted specimens in museums.
The masked Tnwareks! Critical hor*.-
faty compels us to any thnt thc author
Is a mighty long while in getting at
them; but the journey and-the search
are thoroughly enjoyablci The Tawar*
?ks are the people we hear of so often
In connection with French extension in
North Africa. The Sahara is their couif-
try—the Sahara of sand, loneliness nnd
desolation; thc Sahara of the oasis, the
palm plantation and the solitary
mosque. As to the origin of the Tawar-
eks and their language let the learned
decide. Our author describes them ns a
Berber race; but, whatever their history
or deacent, certain it is that to-day thay
are nomads of the Sahara who levy
blackmail on all wli-> use the caravan
routes through the desert] and, failing
concession of their d'mantis, make free
to pay themselves in the "good old wav,
the simple plan." Thev live in small
wandering communities far from the settled haunts of other peoples, to whom
they arc known ehipfiy as raiders who
come like a whirlwind upon the encampment in the dark hefore thc diw.i.
and make no scruple to take human
life if they are resisted. To visit the
Tawftrcks, note their ways and customs,
nnd if possible photograph their countenances, was the object- of our authar.
This last promised to b» difficult, for it
is a point of almost religloUs etiquette
among thc Tawnreks to krep the face
covered up to the level of th" eyes with'
a foldrd cloth. How Mr. King foAind
his Tnwareks at last, and succeeded In
taking photographs of three of their
women, whom he persuaded to unveil in
the nhsenee of the men, makes most interesting reading. The countenance of
the young male Tawarek whom, with
much greater difficulty than in the case
of thc women, he induced to uncover his
face is extremely fine as reproduced by
photography. The youth might be poet
as well as warrior. How far it is typical
the author does not sny, and probably
cannot, as he had few opportunities of
aeeing uncovered faces. But he tells M
enough of other characteristics of the
Tawnreks, the pride, the dignity, the
small well-formed hands, thc stature,
the fearlessness, to wnke in us that ancient belief in the open air as. the truft
sphere of man's perfection and ennoblement.
So also when we turn from the men
to the desert scenes so well described in
the book, how the desires of youth aw
stirred once more. Again we learn tbe
true significance ol that sadly misused word "oasis" as we follow the little company of men and camels through
■some long day's journey over the limit*
'ess sand, bo hot that it can scarcely be
:ield in the hand, so mintTnmr.nt that
• he piled-up mounds and dunes shift
from year to year, so loose that in
iilaces one sinks in it ankle-deep. In
lue time, hut never before desired, ap-
■ear in the distance tlic specks of tufted
minis, Tho camel quickens its pace un-
il it rcachea the hollow where lies
•tretched a green place of shrubs, trees,
terries nnd flower", a place of mud
louses, mud mosi-.ies and—water. On
he morrow the desert ng.iiu, and sand,
nnd, ns far ns the next oasis,   Wc have
• end of all this before, of the glare, the
-ky colors, the* mirages, the salt pools,
•ut we do not rciiiembnr to have heard
>f the "weird, unaccountable droning of
he Sahara" at all hours by day Hnd
light. Tiie booming of London we know,
ind the long moan of the sea, and the
crooning of the night winds among the
lills, but that droning of the Sahara is
i thing we would go far to hoar for its
>wn sake. Indeed thc book shows i<s
iow good is life even in hip desert. The
Sahara can be no rnei,* waste while the
Tawareks survive.
France has painted tho Snhura Into
her maps as her owi, And most strange
it is to read the description of a Sheik's
liou.se wherein cheap .■'mich trinkets and
ornaments were mingled wilh objects of
true Arab art and fabrication; Nickel
ilann clocks and el..lid shepherdesses
tave reached the oases, but over the
■Sahara as a habitable place prevails and

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtained often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our

A radical change from old'met)h- I
ods and prices has been-made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of tho newspvper world have1
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at tho price of 81.00 a
year bv mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in tho future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of tho popple, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, bused not only cut <he popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits, of
be paper.
We have arrim(*enicnts concluded
which enables us tp club the Toronto
News with our own paper at 12.25 a
year in advance, Sucn a combination presents many unlQUe features
—our scmi-wcciklv giving you all
