Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, November 7,1905
Issued Twice a Week
Ward Division By-Law Introduced Last Night by Aid.
New Turbine Pump Accepted
and Payment Ordered
for Same
The regular bi weekly meeting nf
the city council was held in the
council chamber last.night, Mayor
H-uninar, Aid. Brown, Clemmts,
Crossen, Hutton and McCallum being present.
A commhnication was read from
the secretary of the board of trade,
asking for the use of the council
chamber as a meeting place for the
board once a moiUh.   Granted.
A communication from D. Wood-
head asked for nine hounl for workmen employed on the city streets.
Received and ordered filed for
future reference.
A circular letter from The Bristol
company quoted a price of (139.10
for an F. Watt meter. The city
electrician and the chairman of the
water and light committee said it
would be to the advantage of the
city to install one of these meters at
the power house. It would probably cost $185 laid down in city.
Mayor Hammar thought thepreseni
council had spent enough money on
improvements, and that the matter
might properly be left to the incoming council lo deal with. On mi)
tion of Aid. Brown and Clements,
thc water and light committee was
authorized to purchase a watt met"r,
to be deliver Feb. 1st.
A communication from.the.Canadian Fairbanks company slated that
the new turbine piimn had done
more actual work than the specifications claimed for it. This' assertion
was contradicted by the chairman of
the water andlight committee. Mr.
Clements, however, admitted that il
was a good pump, and its only faull
was that it did not come up to
specifications. Aid. Brown had also
inspected the pump, and was sat's-
fied with the work it is doing. He
made a motion, which carried, thai
the pump be paid for,' less the $1' 0
reduction the company had ex
pressed a willingness to make on account of a defect in the casting.
W. L. Hodges made application
forthe position as auditor of the city
books for the current year. On motion, it was decided to call for tenders for the work.
The following accounts were ordered paid:
Fairbanks company $129.90
J. Armiston    18.00
W. Emard      3.05
Gutta Percha & Rubber Co..   74.50
G. F. Transfer Co    17.90
Can. Gen. Electric Co      3.00
C. P. R      3.61
Thos. A. Mclntyre        -75
W.K.C. Manly      13.05
A. F. Michener    17.00
C.P.R..Tel ;      6.77
M.S. Martin    59.25
J. M.Simpson      3.50
H. B. Cannon    46.10
W. Emard    36.90
W. H. Disbrowe      8.10
J. Anderson      2.70
Tbe chairman of the water and
light committee reported the contract with the Granby company for
power completed, and on  motion
the proper officials wen* authorized
to sign the same and affix the corporation seal.
Aid. Clemen's also reported having received applications for light
anil power from the Boundary Iron
Works nnd fnrjigh't from Lequime's
planing mill iu the Ruckle addition.
It would cost about $150 to con
struct the iine to these works. If
only the lights were granted the applicants wire willing to supply the
poles, reducing the cost nearly one
half. The Boundary Iron Works
wanted power for a five-horsepower
motor, to be used occasionally. The
mayor opposed extending the light
system outside ehe city limits as
long as there were ratepayers residing inside the corporation who were
refused this privilege. On motion of Aid. McCallum, the water
and light committee was empowered
to act in the matter of constructing the line and establishing rates
for light and power in this instance.
The city clerk was authorized to
sell the Columbia water tank to the
first man who offered $100 for it;
also some of the machinery at the
old jiower house.
Aid. Crossen, chairman of the
board of works, reported that the
First street bridge had been repaired
and that it would he safe for traffic
until high water next spring. The
entire amount of the $100 appropriated by the government had been
consumed by the work.
Aid. Brown, chairman of the
health nnd relief committee, reported that the following milk tests had
been made by the health officer:
Hanson—Test No. 1, 4J per cent
fat; No. 2, 4. Newby—No. 1, 4\;
No. 2, 4J. O'Ray—No. 1, 4^-j No.
2,  47
Thc mayor reported that there
"ere still fifty or sixty boxes ol
dynamite and powder stored in thc
old building at thc cemetery by W.
K. C. Manly. On motion of Aid.
Brown and Crossen, the chief of police was instructed to notify Mr.
Manly to move the same outside thc
city limits.
The monthly financial statement
was read and approved.
Aid. Brown was granted leave to
introduce a by-law changing the
wards of the city. It passed its first
and second readings, and was then
considered in committee, Aid. Hutton occupying the chair.
Section 2 of the new by-law pro
vides for the division of the city into
two wards, with Winnipeg avenue
as the dividing line. Tbis proved
to be the stumbling block.
Aid. Brown said that by making
Winnipeg avenue the dividing line
the assessment of tho two wards
would be equalized. If found feasible, he would favor abolishing the
ward system,
Aid. McCallum said that by divitl
ing the city into north and south
wards the entire council would be
elected from within two blocks of the
city hall. It was the duty of aldermen to represent property as well as
voters, and for this reason he wanted
to see all sections of the city repre
sented in the council. He didn't see
how the wards could beabolished in
a-scattered city like Grand Forks.
He favored cither the present sys'
teni or a division of the city into
east and west wards. This would
probably make Sixlh street tht
dividing line.
Aid. Hutton coincided with Mr.
MoCallum'u views.    He wanted to
see both the West end and the Nort,h
addition represented, so that the interests of these sections could be
properly looked after. North and
south wards would revive the ol 1
tight between the cast and west ends.
Mayor Hammar, Aid. Crossen and
Clements expressed practically the
same views as Messrs. Hutton and
McCallum. All sections of the city,
the mayor said, were working bar*
.ninniously together now, and anything done to break this friendly
feeling should be frowned upon.
Aid. McCallum offered an amendment to the section making the street
running north and south nearest
one-half the assessed valuation of
the city the dividing line between
the East and West wards. The
amendment was seconded by Mayor
Hammar, and passed the committee
The committee then rose and re
ported progress.
Aid. Crossen gave notice that at
the next meeting he would introduce a by-law providing for the remuneration of the mayor and aldermen.
The council then adjourned.

Will Be an Improvement on
the Existing Train Arrangement
Announcement is expected at an
early date relative to the new train
service by the Spokane Falls &
Northern and affiliated railroads
serving the coantry north of Spokane, says the Spokesman-ReAiew.
The matter is in the hands of Great
Northern transpoi tation executives at
St. Paul, and it is believed the change
will become effective about the time
the company is ready to run passenger trains over the Curlew-Midway
link in the Vancouver, Victoria k
Eastern line two or three weeks hence.
The road from Curlew to Midway is
now being ballasted for passenger
trains, although a regular freight train
service has been in operation for some
weeks. The existing train arrangement on the Spokano Falls & Northern system is not particularly convenient or satisfactory, but possesses thc
advantage from the railway viewpoint
of being operated economically. It is
intimated that the new service is calculated to serve the traveling public
to better advantage, even at greater
outlay for traffic expenses.

The Prairie Dor.
There Is no burrowing animal which
works with more intelligence than the
prairie dog. He never commits the error of making Ills mound in a place
which may be sulimerged by water. In
a western Kansas town a small boy
caught a young dog and fixed a home
for it in the cellar of his father's bouse.
The dog went to work almost at once
to dig a tunnel to the open air. It
went down under tbe stone wall of tbe
cellar and up to the surface at a point
about 100 feet from tbe house. But It
found that its point of exit was in tbe
middle of a well traveled road. It went
back and dug another gallery in an
oblique direction from tbe first, emerging in a plot of grass. Tbe earth carried back into the cellar in this digging
would more than fill a wagon box.
For several years the dog lived on the
premises, making tbe cellar its base ot
operations, but going to the open air at
will through its gallery.

that indigestion is the national disease
of America. • There is hut one national remedy for indigestion, and that
remedy is Dr. Hamilton's Pills, which
accelerate the action of the gastric
glands and give tone to . the digestive
organs. They strengthen the kidneys
and liver,cleanse and purify the blood,
and thus add general tone to every
organ of the bisly. Flesh and strength
are fast restored antl the patient can

Aid. Brown's by-law, changing the
ward lines of the city, is probably
the most important measure that has
come before the council during the
present year, and should therefore
be carefully considered. As originally framed, making Winnipeg
avenue the dividing line between a
north and a south ward, the by-law
would practically deprive both the
west and north ends of representation in the council. And the same
argument holds good against the
abolition of the ward system. The
amendment which passed the committee unanimously last night, may
consequently be considered as the
most feasible division of the city.
It would undoubted prove acceptable to all sections, and help to cement the present harmonious feeling, whereas an attempt to curtail
the representation from any section
would be sure to be followed by the
old-time strife between the east and
the west end. This feeling has now
happily died out, and it is the duty
of every citizen to see that it is not

Chas. McAllister, of this city, who
has a contract on the Midway ifc
Vernon, met with a painful accident
last week, by which he nearly lost
the sight of both eyes. In attending to a sick horse, it became necessary to rub the affected parts with
carbolic acid, when the smarting
caused the animal to make a sudden movement, scattering the contents of the bottle in all directions,
a part going into McAllister's face
and eyes, causing severe burns. Thc
unfortunate man was iu great agony,
and as the accideni occurred out on
the construction works, be was unable to obtain proper medical assistance immediately. It is thought
thc injury to the eyes will be merely
of a temporary character, but tbe
escape from total blindness was
very narrow.

"Gentlemen, ye dlnnu use your fak-

Scotch professor, addressing his class.
Here he pushed forward a gallipot containing a chemical compound of ex-

"AVhen I was a student," he continued, "I used my sense of taste, sae."
And with that be dipped bis finger Into
the gallipot and put bis finger Into his
mouth. "Taste it, gentlemen; taste It,"
said the professor, "and exercise your
perceptive fatalities."
The gallipot was pushed toward the
reluctant class. One by one tbe students resolutely dipped a finger Into
tbe abominable concoction and with
many a wry face sucked tbe abomination from their fingers.

Author anil Publisher. Houghton, Mioh., U.S.A.
A woman never makes so many excuses to her company for the looks of
the house as she does just after she
has spent two days getting it ready.
One must do business with a man
and be in love with a woman to know
them both perfectly, and even then
they are liable to have you guessing.
Perhaps you never had the pleasure
of meeting the best man that ever
lived, but if you marry a widow you
are sure to hear of him frequently.
The parents of a pretty and rich
girl refused to let her best young man
come around to the house. That settles it—they will get married.
It is simply a waste of time to argue
politics, as the other fellow knows you
are in the wrong, just as well as you
know that he isn't in the right.
Nothing can exceed the intense affection which a girl deals out to her
father for a day or two bef re tie
time when she asks for a new dress.
A "medium" has had a long interview with the spirit of old Adam, and
reports that Adam still blames the
whole business on little Eve.
The persons who declare that they
can tell a man's character by the color
of his hair, get left when they run
against a baldheaded man.
Marrying a man to reiorm him is
like putting a hog into the parlor to
clean him. It doesn't help the hog
and damages the parlor.
It is a wonderful consolation to a
man, when he is in trouble, to tell
him that you hope it will prove a valuable and lasting lesson.
Too many people are more exercised
about what is going to be done with
them hereafter than what they do
with themselves here.
The single man who never takes his
mother or sisters to a show is very indignant when lie sees a married man
there by himself.
Nobody worfies ahout the lie he
isn't caught in.

In Ihe Navy 46 Tears.
Rear-Admiral U. T. Grenfell, C. M.
G., who has been appointed to succeed Kcar-Admiral It. N. Constance
with the Mediterranean fleet, has
been in tho navy for 4(5 years. As
commander of the Cockntrice ho did
good work during the Egyptian war
of 1882, and he gained the U.M.G.
for his services in Crete five yearr.
ago. The Telegraph recalls an incident of the time when Gronrell was
serving as captain of the battleship
Bonbow. Tho ship's boys were ordered to batho in Plyinouth Sound.
Otic of them got .into diliicultit'S, and
Captain Grehfell, as he then was,
and Commander Wells, his chief executive officer, afterwards head of the
London lire brigade, and now chief
agent of the Conservative party, immediately jumped in to the rescue.
Swimming; for Solillci-4.
Many valuable lives would certainly be saved annually if swimming
formed a portion of the national curriculum for soldiers. During tho
bathing season there were several
fatal accidents to soldiers whose
lives would have been saved could
they have swum a few yards. During the South African war there was
a case of a retreating detachment
which could not fetch a boat from
the other side on an unfurdablo
stream, although no enemy but the
water offered opposition. A couple
of fair swimmers could have performed the service with ease, and, the river being narrow, the little command
would have been ferried over before
the pursuing Boers arrived on the
scene.—London Globe.
