Fifth Year-No. 14
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, December 15,1905
Issued Twice a Week
To Hotels Ara Granted by the
Grand Forks City Commissioners
Saloons  Will. Be a Thing of
the Past After 15th of
Next Month
The board of license commissioners
for the city of Grand Forks met in
the city hall on Wednesday afternoon
and granted licenses for the ensuing
term of six months. - As there were
only eight licenses to be granted
among fourteen or fifteen applicants,
they had a rather difficult task to
perform, and it required on adjourned
meeting Thursday afternoon to finish
the business.
At the first day's session licenses
were granted to the Yale, Winnipeg,
Province, Granby, Pacific-Md Queen's,
and the applications of the Grand
Forks and the Square »ere refused.
This left two licenses to be disposed of
at the meeting on Thursday. There
were four applicants for these two
licenses'—Fraser of tne Windsor, Rus-
sel of the Victoria, Manly of the
Club, and Traunweiser of the Alberta.
The coininisioners finally decided in
favor ofthe Windsor and the Alberta.
There was some lively discussion
among the applicants at both sessions.
David Whiteside appeared for the
Club, W. B. Cochrane for the Square
and Grand Forks, and A. C. Sutton
for the Victoria, and all three did
their best for their clients.
One of the commissioners this
evening stated the reason the Alberta
hod had been selected in.preference
to the Club or Victoria, waa that Mr.
Traunweiser had demonstrated to the
board that his license for the Yale is
practically valueless to him. The Alberta, it is said, is in first-closs condition, possessing all the requirements
necessary to qualify as an hotel. The
license for tio house has been kept
up since the place was closed.
Messrs. Manly and Russell naturally feel rather sore over the action
of the board. Mr. Manly's friends
assert that if the Club hod been
given a license Grand Forks would
soon have had another first-class hotel,
and the followers of Mr. Russell claim
that lie was entitled to a license on
tho ground that he has expended
about §7000 ou the Victoria since
purchasing it.
There was some talk last night
among the defeated applicants of testing the validity of the new liquor
license by-law in the courts.
To the Editor of The Sun.
DEAR Sin:—I regret having nny
differences with Mr. Burrell, for I
have always felt disposed to be
friendly towards him, reserving the
latitude allowed to friends in party
politics. Yet, I have a reputation
at stake, and I leave it to your readers to deeide if it is not as well worth
protecting as that of the accuser.
Although the controversy .provoked by Mr. Burrell regarding the
salary question is still continued in
the Gazette, the last attempt is so
vague that it only calls for a very
short reply.
Inasmuch as there has been no
other excuse or reason offered for
the unjustifiable scoring of my action within the last year, I am forced
to the conviction that, unless Mr.
Burrell has been made a catspaw of,
the reason suggested in my letter of
the 2nd Jnst. is tho correct one.
Especially, in view of the excuse
offered by Mr. Burrell for not criti
cising the same action last year,
"That he was not connected with
the Gazette at that time.'' Are we to
infer from that thnt no one is entitled to crificise public affairs except the editor of the Gazette? That,
excuse might be accepted in Russia,
but in a free and enlighteded country, where every ratepayer is at liberty to pass a fair, honest criticism
on the action of public servants, such
an excuse will not do. Of course,
the press i3 a powerful weapon in tho
hands of an able critic, and the
value of being connected with it, for
pulling even (if one is disposed to
use it for such purpose) cannot be
overestimated. Yet the people pf
this country are too 'ar advanced in
civilization to allow any editor to
monopolize the criticising business.
Mr. Burrell is satifled to let the
ratepayers draw their own conclusions from the reports—and, by the
way, I have found no fault with thc
reports, but only with his unjust or
misleading comments nnd criticisms
on the reports—and judging from
the conclusions drawn in the last
issue of the Gazette, I have no doubt
that any citizen of ordinary intelligence can draw conclusions fully ns
logical as the Gazette does; so thnt i
Mr. Burrell had accorded this privilege to the ratepayers sooner, it
might have been better for himself
and the Gazette.
I agree with Mr. Burrell that the
question at issue is the mayor's and
aldermen's salaries, and I see no
excuse for resorting to the old worn-
out argument of personal abuse in
this controversy, as found in Mr.
Burrell's editorial in the Gazette of
the 25th ult., and other attacks of
a milder form prior to that date. In
my former letter I adhered strictly
to the question at issue, and referred
to Mr. Burrell's qualification to show
that if reports are correct, he wrongfully and inconsistently accepted
the mayor's salary when he was not
legally qualified to hold the position. And notwithstanding Mr.
Blirrell's explanation of his qualification, the fact still remains, thirt
after his term he (Mr. Burrell) told
the assessor to reduce the valuation
of the property on which hequalified,
and to again assess it to the former
owner. The result is that, according to the city books, Mr. Burrell is
not the assessed owner of a single
dollar's worth of real estate in the
We can scarcely believe that a
law-abiding, intelligent citizen like
Mr. Burrell can bo serious when he
says he has sufficient interest to
qualify him, in properties held by
and assessed to others. Mr. Burrell
must certainly know that thc law
does not recognize such qualification.
It is pretty generally conceded
that Mr. Burrell provoked this controversy without any cause, and if
he wants to continue it he should
answer the leading question explicitly and without equivocation. Yours
truly. Neil McCallum.

On Wednesday morning Murdock
McGillivray, who has been employed
at the Granby smelter for a couple of
years, was found near the Club saloon, either dead or iu a dying condition. The story of the finding of the
man, as told a Sun reporter by the
chief of police, is as follows:
"At about 2:,I0 o'clock Wednesday
morning Martin Dufour, night bur-
tender at the Club, came nnd notified
me that he hud just closed up his
place and that he had put a man out
who was too much under the Influence
of liquor to take cure of himself, and
that I had better lock him up or he
woald freeze to death, I walked
bock to the saloon with Martin, and
we found the man in the lattice work
on the west side of the building. Wc
picked him up and tried to make liiin
walk to the station, hut he whs us
limp as a i"ag. Finally we had to literally curry him to the city hull. I put
my hand buck of his neck, und fell
that it was warm. As we lifted hiin
up, the man gave a sort of a grunt.
When we got' to the city hull I examined him more closely. I told
Martin I believed the man wus dead,
and we decided to send for Ur. Kingston. When the doctor nrrived he
confirmed my * suspicions. The man
hnd been on a protracted Spree. He
had $2 in cash and an insurance polioy
in the Independent Order of Foresters
on his person. These! turned themover
to the public administrator."
McGillivray wus about 40 years of
age, and has lived in this city about
two years.    He was a  native of  Ap-.
pie Hill, Glengary eounty Ontario,
I)eceas"d recently joined the Federal Labor Union, and he wus to huve
been buried under the auspices of thut
i rganization tomorrow, but the coroner has ordered u postponement of
the funeral.
To lay Coroner Kingston summoned a jury, and an inquest wns
held over the remains this forenoon.
After hearing evidence, un adjourn**
ment wns taken until 8 o'clock this
afternoon. At the evening meeting
the jury again failed to bring in a ver-
dicl, but adjourned till 8 o'clock
Monday night, in order to gain additional data concerning the death of
Mi*. MoGillivruy, The members of
the jury are: A, O, Morrison, foreman; G. J. Hayward, T. .1. Benninger, Donald McCallum, Stanley
Davis uml T. J. Gould.

Speaking of whnt a newspaper
does for thc community, United
States Senator David Davis, of Illinois, made an address that remains
ever green in the memories of the]
newspaper men. He said: "Every
year every local newspaper gives
from 500 to 5000 free lines for the
benefit of the community in which
il is located. No other agency can
do this. The editor, in proportion
to his means, does more for his own
town than any other man. He ought
to be supported; not because you
happen to like him or admire his
writing, but because a loeal paper is
the best investment a community
can make. It may not be crowded
with great thought, but financially
it is of more benefit than both
preacher and teacher. Today editors do more for less pay than any
man on earth. Patronizo your home

flavor. Their program consisted of

tal trios, and were tendered in a
style quite refreshing and picturesque garbed in costume. Mr. Chas.
W. Hitchcock in his dramatic monologues is worthy of special mention,
as his work is clean and up-to-date
in every respect, and showed for itself by the numerous encores he received.    It is hoped that the music-

He  Swnwrered  Off  to  Death  aa  Ha
Had Swaggered Through Lit*.
The O'Gorman Million was about
eighty yeurs of age when I met him
tor the first time. One could still see
what a lion of a man he had been. He
was over six feet high. He hud still
nu Immense mane of snow white hulr,
and he had a long, white beard. The
face was loug and horse shaped, the
eyes were still bright nnd fierce nnd
defiant, nnd the voice had a deep note
like tho roar of nu enraged Uou. The
O'Gorman Mahon was the very plrik
of old fashioned courtesy, but one
could easily see whnt n man he had
been. He wns thc great duelist of hts
dny, n survival of tho squires who
live In the pages of the chroniclers of
Ireland before the Onion. He hud
been out dozens If uot scores of times,
and there wns a story of his fighting
some three duels nil lu a morning.
• It wns curious that he stuck to the
old dueling gospel to the end. t never
snw ti man so disgusted ns he wus
when he found that Mr. Parnell would
uot send a challenge to Sir Williiiin
Iliircourt for some Insulting langunge
which Sir William had used to the
Irish chief. I can still recall the scene.
It took place at one of the tables In
the tenroom of the bouse of commons.
The old warrior turned up nt the consultation, looking almost radiant. He
sniffed the dueling ground from afar.
Some two or three of the then young
colleagues of Parnell were present,
and this idea of a challenge appeared
to their modern minds, of course, as
something grotesque. But The O'Gorman Mahon had come In perfect faith
that a duel was a certainty, and hi)
long, horse shaped face became visibly
longer as Parnell calmly said that ha
did not regard dueling as rational or
necessary. The old gentleman was toe
polite to express his real feelings, but
the pained silence which followed the
announcement of Parnell sufficiently
revealed what he felt.
During the all night sittings of the
eighties The O'Gorman Million was always In bis place. He made It almost
a point of vanity never to be absent
when any such work was going. Ho
wore the sniue suit of clothes winter
and summer. It was a curious light
colored henvy tweed. Somehow or other It seemed to accord with the white
mnne and the white heard. He also
wns a great smoker, but Instead of a
cigar he used to smoke the democratic
pipe, and, if I mlstnke not, the tobacco
wns both strong and cheap. He could
tell very strnnge titles of the old days
In Ireland and In iminy other parts of
the world too. He hnd fought in some
of the many civil wars of the southern
hemisphere and find ninny marvels to
relate of earthquakes, revolutions nnd
other natural and human phenomena
In those faroff regions.
I was with the gallant old fellow
within a few hours of his death. Ho
died as he had lived. He was full of
the round oaths of the eighteenth century, had his drink to the Inst, joked
about his ninety years, refused nil consolations, temporal or spiritual, and
swaggered off to death as be often bad
done to the dueling ground. He was
tha last of a race.—M, A. P.

A PopuUr Train.
A train of thoughts will take a man
farther (or less money than any train
of curs ever built.
To catch atraln of cars a man must
get up before be Is through sleeping,
bolt a hasty breakfast, borrow what
money his wife has been saving tor a
new hat and then make a Dan Patch
run for it.
For a pleasant jaunt on a train ot
thought a man leans back in his easy
chair, closes his eyes and in about halt
a second is over in Asia showing tht
Japanese how to run the war. The
beauty of it is that he cun easily get
buck in lime for dinner; and he always
makes it a point to do so.
When in doubt take a train of
thought, You will find it In every way
superior to u box cur or the blind bag.

A Famous Fair.
The annual fair at Stourbridge, near
Cambridge, England, was, it Is claimed,
instituted by Carausius, the rebel Roman emperor of Britain, ou Sept. 19,
A. D. 207. It certainly flourished as
early as this, and British commerce is
believed to have had Its lirst real boom
in consequence of the reports carried
to the continent by foreign Naders who
flocked to this world's fair. About a
thousand years later Stourbridge fair
got a new lease of life from Klug John
for the benefit of a leper hospital, and
for eight centuries or more it was the
greatest fair in England.
