TWICE-A-WEEK
The  City Council
Committees Appointed for the Ensuing
Year
ladies had thoughtfully provided
and taken with them. The night
was a beautiful ene, and the return
tfip was immensely enjoyed by all,
and many look forward to another
like treat in the near future.
The Mayor Favors Reducing the Force of City Employes
If Found to Be Larger Than Necdssary to Insure Efficient Service.
The first regular meeting of the
newly elected city council was held
in the council chamber last night.
Those present were Mayor Hammar,
Aldermen Clements, Feeney, Hut-
ton, McCallum, McLellan and McNee. ,
The mayor appointed the following committees for ihe ensuing year:
Finance—Neil McCallum and A.
L. Clements.
Board of Works—M. K, Feeney
and Wm. McNee.       —
Health and Relief—A. LClSmonts
and Wm. McNee.
The first named of each committee is chairman.
The following account waa. ordered paid: ' Vernon & Nelson Tele-
, phone-company, 112. ■',
Mayor Hammar made a short
address to the council, in which he
stated that the chairmen of the 'different committees would be asked-to
look into the matter of the salaries
now being paid to all city officials,
and to see if there wero more employes of the city than was necessary to perform tho work of each
department in a proper manner. If
so, they should be discharged. He
said he was n >t in favor of reducing
salaries, as he thought the city
should pay its employes fair wages.
The council then adjourned.
The old city council held tbeir
■ last meeting Saturday afternoon
at 1:30 o'clock' Mayor Burrell,
Aid. Martin,. McLeJlan, McCalhim,
Fcenqy, Gaw and Peterson were in
attendance; There was.no business
of importance to transact, but before adjourning Mayor Burrell made
a neat little speech to tho members
of the council, congratulating them
\>n the. businesslike manner in which
the city's affairs had been administered during tho past year, arid the
good feeling and harmony which
existed throughout between himself
and all the Members. Ho commented on the financial statement
of . tho city, which had just been
made public, stating that it was a
matter of great gratification to note
the decrease in liabilities over the
preceding year.
Aid. McCallum made a brief address, in which he said it was a matter of great satisfaction, as the
mayor had stated, that the council
of 1903 had worked so harmoniously for the advancement and welfare of the city, which, doubtless,
. all had at heart. It was gratifying,
ho said, to jiote the way in which
Mayor Burrell was over ready to
can*-, out tho wishes of tho majority
of the council, and the relations between the aldermen and the mayor
had always been the best.
The council then' adjourned sine
die.
The, niayoi and aldermen for 1904,
after being duly sworn, then took
their seats. The new council
is composed of the following members: Mayor Hammar, Aid. McCallum, McLellan, Feeney, Clonientsf'
Hutton and McNee. As the meeting was only for inaugural purposes,
no business matters came up.
Mayor Hammar made a short speeeh
congratulating the aldermen on their
election. He said he hoped the relations between them during the
year would prove harmonious, and
that nothing but good feeling would
prevail. ,
An adjournment was then taken
until Monday evening.
A   SUCCESSFUL   COMEDY
Broadhurat's "What Happened lo Jones"
WiU Be Presented Here - A Notable Theatrical Event.
Manager Walker, of the Winnipeg theatre, will soon present in this
city "What Happened to Jones,"
George Broadhurst's great comedy,
which, has enjoyed long runs at the
leading theatres of New York and
London, nnd which is known in the
large cities all over the country. It
is a Comedy that docs not require
slap-sficks nnd funny falls to make
it laughable. Its plot is logical and
carried out with innumerable complications that arc excruciatingly
funny. Manager Walker has comedians, and tbe piece will be presented here witn the same careful
attention to costuming and scenery
il receives in the large cities. Fur
the first time western Canada will
have a metropolitan production of a
famous comedy. "'What Happened
to Jones" will be seen here on Fo%.

evening. It is tho intention of the
members to give a social some day
during the present week.
The sleighing party given under
tho auspices of the Ladies' Aid of
Knox church las^ Friday evening
waB*** most-decided success. About
76 people, most of whom were young
folks, took in the party. Two four-
horse teams with big sleighs, well
provided with fur rugs, conveyed
the party to W. H. Covert's ranch,
where they wero warmly welcomed.
Games sf all kinds were indulged in,
also songs and music, together with
a  nice  basket   repast,  which  the
W. K. C. Manly opened Mb new
grocery store to the public last Saturday. This department is in charge
of J. Livesley, an experienced gro-
ccryman, and the patrons of the
store can depend on getting thc best
goods on the market at reasonable
prices. The store iB one of the largest and best fitted up in Grand

Read Mr. Manly's ad. in this issue
of The Sun.

Granby smelter, has returned from
a month's visit to his old homo in
Toronto. He was accompanied by
his young sonvFred.
Rev. J.R. Robertson preached] a
sermon to the newly elected mayor
and aldermen in Knox church last
Sunday evening. There was a large
turn out, the seating capacity of the
church being taxed to its utmost
limit. The words of his text were:
"This charge I commit unto thee,
that thou mayest wagca good warfare, holding faith and a good conscience." Mr. Robertson delivered
a careful, earnest and instructive
sermon. He paid a high tribute to
tho city government of the past
year, and earnestly called on the incoming council to continucthe good
work and stand up for a moral city
administration. He said it was the
duty of every man to extend sympathy, help and encouragement to
the men on whose shoulders hnd
fallen the burden of wisely governing
the city. He also dealt with the
subject of the evil conditions' existing in nil cities, and the great need
for moral reform to be carried,out
by the city government. Let there
be no revenue, hit said, derived from
any source but an honorable one to
help,carry on tbe business of the
city. The cry was raised a year ago
when the municipal campaign was
on, that if the moral reform policy
was enforced financial ruin would
be the result. Instead, thc city's
finances for the past year showed 11
large decrease in thc total liabilities
over the preceding year, and therefore thc last prop on which the people had made that cry was knocked
from under! them. He Hoped the
citizens would continue the good
fight, and make our city a place of
which wc need not be ashamed.
The choir rendered a beautiful anthem at the close of (he service.

guard at Carson, hns been attending

Accident at Eholt
J. W. R. C. Brown Killed by a Falling
Tree.
Lingered Twelve Hours and Then Expired---Was a Young
Man of Twenty-Three, and a   Native
of Ireland.
Last Tuesday night a sad accident occurred at Eholt, resulting in
the death of a young fellow named
James William Richard Cornelius Brown, who had been in the
Boundary but a few months, and
was highly esteemed by those who
knew him.
It seems that Brown, with two
companions, Charles Paburn and
Albert Hayes, had been cutting timber within a quarter of a mile of
Eholt for some little time, although
Brown was not an old hand at this
work. About 9 o'clock Brown
felled a tree, and as it started to
drop he ran, as he thought, out of its
way. Instead he got into the direct
path of the tree, the upper part of
which struck his head, almost crushing it to a jelly, i
Ho was taken at once to tho home
of Constable Darraugh, in Eholt,
and Dr. Spankie, of Greenwood, was
summoned, who decided that nothing coiild be done for the unfortunate fellow. After lingering for twelve
hours, Brown expired, not having
regained consciousness.
It was not deemed neoussary to
hold a coroner's inquest, as the cause
of death was apparent to all. Arrangements were made with Clark &
Binns, the undertakers, and the funeral washeldThursday, theinterment
.taking place in thc Phoenix cemetery that afternoon, Rev. Wm. Wood
officiating. Several sleigh loads of
friends and acquaintances from
Eholt attended. m.^-
Brown was a native of Dublin,
Ireland, and after living nt Calgary
for a time, came to the Boundary
last slimmer 'He Was a sin'gte'mun;-
with a good education. He had
been considering the starting of a
weekly, paper at Eholt just before
his unfortunate death.

WHY GO EAST
Over the Bun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of' ihe Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on thc
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 Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Throe 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 trains is the best, including free reclining chair cam,
standard and tourist Sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
pereonullv conducted excursion care,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business iB to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant.and inexpensive means .ol
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

thought before he went to In.Ha,
T-iord Kitchener hue been making
himself a great reputation In Shnla
aa a host. As soon aa he arrived at Ins
post in India, Lord Kitchener began improving Mie grounds and transforming
the interior of "Snowden," the official
residence of the commander-in-chief. As
soon as he was able to receive, masculine
Simla began writing their names in the
general's visiting book. This is an immense brass-bound volume, which custom decrees shall be exposed, between
twelve and two each day, on a table on
the veranda of the commander-in-chief's
res id once, to receive the signatures of all
who consider themselves entitled to have
social relations with his military excellency. In due course, this customary
courtesy completed, each caller or hi3
wife, where such existed, received, by
red-coated messenger, a large official invitation card, with "K" printed' in gilt
on the'top, stating that the commander-
in-chief requested the honor of their
company at a ball. Tnose who were
either personally known to Lord Kitch?
ener, or whose official position justified
the distinction, had menu-while been entertained at dinner, and Simla had begun to talk of gold presentation plate,
of changes for the better introduced into
the arrangements of the house, of a
pretty taste in flowers displayed by its
occupant, and of a really excellent cuisine. The ball, which was attended by
I/ord and Lady Curzon and some seven
hundred guests, confirmed Lord Kitchener's reputation for hospitality. It was
noticed that special arrangements had
been made to bring every possible room
in the building into requisition, and tc
extend the accommodation by tents an-'
shamianas, so thnt nobi-dy should be left
out of the occasion. The guests werr
not only entertained on a most generou*
scale, but they were struck by the care
fully planned arrangements for thet
comfort, and by the infinity of persona '
fains taken to ensure their enjoying
hemselves. Lord Kitchener receiver'
everyone himself, and hist pleasant band
shake of good-fellowship dispelled a bos'
of lingering doubts as to the manner of
the man.

About Woman Writers.
Mrs, Humphry Ward is known to the
jporld chiefly as a novelist, yet one of
fhe most active aspects of her life Is
ter philanthropic work among the settlements of London. Especially la she
interested in the raw material of young
tffe that populate the congested slums
»f the East End, and the institution
>hich lies nearest her heart and of
Mich she is most proud is the Vacation
School founded by her in filoomsbury in
injunction with the Passmore Edwards
Settlement in Tavistock Place. While
•he readers of England and America
lave been following with unabated interest the fortunes of Julie Le Breton in
'Lady Bote's Daughter" during the sum-
■tier months, the ttuthor has been quietly and unostentatiously pursuing her
ichemes for the amelioration and gladdening of the joyless lives of the children in the neighborhood of Blooms-
oury.
'Mary MacLane is at it again. Her
publishers promise thnt before the end
af the month we shall have a new book
from her radium-tipped pen, called "My
Friend, Annabel Lee." They write that
the young lady hag been living quietly
In Jioston, working on-thi*; hook. It is
hard to imagine Alary doing anything
quietly.
Miss Corelli in always funny when she
is hysterical, and sne is nearly always
hysterical. Her loud protestations
against the desecration of Stratford by
a Carnegie frpe library were the first
act of a howling farce which has now
reached its climax. Sidney Lee, a scholar whose greatest fault is that he ie
quite incapable of hysteria or any other
manifestation of feeling, says that the
cause of MIsb Corelli's objection is that
she once tried to get the site in dispute
for a free library of he.- own, but found
thc price too high. Miss Corelli, in n
voice shriller than.ever, retorts that Mr.
Lee it a mean thing, nnd calls on her
solicitors to hnle him to the court*
Then she writes another pamphlet, call
it "The Plain Truth About the Stmt fori!
on-Avon Controversy," and sends it on:
as her final vindication.
Dowie's Descent on New York,
Eight special trains, over as many
railroads, have been engaged to curry
John Alexander Doyle and his "Restoration Host" to New York City next
month. A "great mission" is to be held tn
Madison Square Garden from October 18
to November 1. Dowie will be accompanied, according to advance notices, by
the "Zion WhUe-ltobed Choir of Hundreds of Voices, Zion City Brass Band.
Hundreds of Officers of the Church, and
at least Four Thousand Members of Zion
Restoration Host.''

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence o^ 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 obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR    ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been 'made which
have given that paper a widespread f
reputation for enterprise and original!**/. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of $1.00a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the 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 the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which'it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club thc Toronto
News with our own paper at 12.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the home and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you ,in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see
thc paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.

One of Bangs' Political Experiences.

"At the time I was running for mayor
')f Yonkers I saw a laborer d-siring iii a
crench, and I thought I would try to

'aid:
•"Hello, Pat!'
"He looked at me without recognizing
i&, and aaid: 'Good mo-ruin*, sor.'
"I anid it was a fine day and asked him.
f he had made up his mind how liei
vould vote at the election.
*"0i don't know, sor; hut wan thing

"I asked Pat if he would smoke, and
he said he would. He took thc cigar, bit
off thc end, put it iu his mouth, and lit
it. Then suddenly he grasped the eigar
