The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council last night was short
compared with the previous session.
Mayor Hammar and Aid. Brown,
Clements, McCallum, Henniger,
Crossen and Hutton were present.
The application of Mre. Thomas
Duffy for electric light was referred
to the water and light committee.
, The financial statement for the
month of September was read and
approved. {Receipts, $11,433.81;

The chairman of the hoard of
works recommended that a sidewalk
be laid from the Winnipeg avenue
bridge to connect with the West
ward system of walks. On motion
of Aid. Clements and Hutton, the
recommendation was adopted. The
board didn't approve of the con
structiou of a sidewalk from Winni
peg avenue to R. R. Gilpin's residence, as other property owners had
been refused similar requests.
The mayor reported that the provincial government had decided to
give $100 towards the repair of the
First street bridge. The boaril of
works was authorized to hnve the
bridge but in a safe condition for
trallic.
Aid. Clements enquired if any
more tests of the milk supplied the
citizens by the dairymen had been
taken. He was informed that there
had, but that the health ollicer had
not yet submitted his report.
Aid. Brown, of the cemetery committee, thought, that the council
should do something towards fene-
' ing and improving the grounds.
Aid. Clements didn't think the present board wifuld be justified in
spending any more money except
what was absolutely necessary. The
mayor anil Aid. McCallum admired
the energy of the committee, but
endorsed Mr. Clements' economical
views. They favored, however, a
recommendation to the incoming
council to improve the grounds. Aid.
Brown persisted that some improvements should be made this year.
He was of the opinion that the cemetery could be fenced and otherwise
beautified for 8500- During the
discussion on this subject thc fact
was brought to light that P. Welch,
the railway contractor, has a larg e
quantity of powder stored on the
grounds.
Aid. Brown asked for information
regarding the changing of the wards
of the city. Aid. McCallum stated
that suck a by-law had been brought
in a year ago. He had opposed it
then,as at that time the council was
working under the Amalgamation
Act, which limited the power of the
council in this respect for two years.
At poesent, if it could be shown that
a change would be beneficial to the
city, he would favor it. The city
solicitor stated that, in accordance
with the Municipal Clauses Act, it
was the duty of the council to change
the wards so as to equalize the assessment of each as much as possible.
The liquor license by-law was then
taken up, and the report of the committee was adopted. The promised
petition failing to show up,
and none of the aldermen objecting
to the measure, it passed its third
reading without discussion.
The road tax by-law was reconsidered and finally passed.
Aid. Brown gave notice that at
the next meeting of the council he
would introduce a by-law providing
for the changing of the wards of the
city.
The council then adjourned until
next Thursday evening at 7:30
o'clock, when the liquor license bylaw will be finally disposed of.

Georgia Minstrels
As big and as good a vaudeville bill
as has been ever seen is presented by
Richards lis Pringle's famous Georgia
Minstrels that come to the Grand
Forks Opera House, Thursday, Oct.
19. There is no "headline" act, each
and every one is strong enough to be
featured with any Company or vaudeville theater in America. Like similar
organizations it has a first part, but
the "Georgius" give one that is different from all others. It is full of boisterous, lively fun and music, with lots
of ginger. There are no "dummy
ends'' or "chair warmers" in the circle; every one is a worker, and if you
want to bear the latest this is the
place to go. All entire new company
this Season, and faces for the first time
ill this province will be seen. Wm.
Nichols lias charge of the largest and
best orchestra over with aaiuinstrel
show. Prof. Fred Simpson has charge
of the big street bund.
The Arch-Fiend of the Age
Not war—more deadly than ever
this modern butchery—but catarrh,
which leads to consumption and an-
nually'kills more than famine and war
combined. The doctors now successfully fight catarrh with a remedy that
never fails—Catarrhozone, it's death
to every form of catarrh. It destroys
every root and branch of the disease so
thoroughly that a relapse need never
be feared. If troubled with culds,
nasal or throat catarrh, or subject to
bronchitis or asthma, use Catarrhozone
and you'll be cured forever. Sold by
all druggists.
BOUNDARY LEADS
Toronto Globe Correspondent
Says It's  the Largest
Camp in B. C.
Impressions of the Journalist
'   Accompanying the Tariff
Commission
0. S. Hammond, special correspondent of the Toronto Globe, who
accompanied the tariff commissioners on their western tour, speaks as
follows in the Globe of the Boundary's mining industry: "A trail of
gray smoke, drifting aimlessly
through the valley of the Kettle
river, denotes the location at Grand
Forks of the Granby smelter, the
chief support of a large section of
the Boundary. The railway in
reaching Grand Forks travels over
mountains of great height, but here
the track lies in a deep valley, and
all that is visible is a rolling country
with a level plateau paralleling the
river bed. It was not alone for this
fertile strip that weeks have been
consumed in the Caffadian parliament battling over the entrance of
J. J. Hill into Canadian territory.
There are mountains of ore in the
regions beyond, which, though of
low grade, are in sufficient quantities to supply Canada with its
largest mine. On a great hill to the
west lies Phoenix, the home of the
Granby mines, where the ore, once
broken loose, is scooped by a steam
shovel, loaded into cars, and sent
down a grade of over 20J0 feet tu
the smelter. Last year about 6J0,-
000 tons of ore were 'riilied there,
producing 14,000,000 pounds of cop
per. Two other smellers, one ni
Greenwood, belonging to the British
Columbia Copper company, and one
at Boundary Falls, add to the industrial wealth and energy of tin*
Boundary country, which, though
the newest, now claims lo be thc
largest mining eamp in British Columbia.
' 'It was from the representatives of
these big industries that tbe tariff
commissioners heard the ardent low-
tariff talk which has already been telegraphed. It is true thut the views
presented were frankly dictaied by
self-interest, but tbey were broken
with a force and sincerity -(hat deserve
every consideration. .They were the
views of consumers, whose case is often
drowned by the noise of the torn toms
around the banqueting boards. Tint
the mining men of Geeenwood and
vicinity had the courage to oppose
the demand for a duty on rough lumber, which is supposed to be so universally in request out here, oeeu
siore I some surprise. .Still there again
they spoke as consumers, and showed
how an increase in duty would mean
an increase in price.
"Some firm opinions on trade matters are evidently held by Mayor Na
den, who in welcoming the commission said: 'I presume that nearly every
one, or certainly the majority of the
people who address you, will be addressing you iu favor of an increase in
the tariff on some particular lilies.
Perhaps it would not be out of placei
for me to say a few words on behalf of
those who have nothing to sell but
their   labor.    In   the   Kootenay you
heard the representations of the tmelt-
ers who want a duty on lead; you have
heard the representatives of the lumber industry, who want a duty on
lumber; you have heard the fruit men,
who want a duty on fruit. While
these are all laudable objects, there are
a great many of us who have no fruit
to sell, no lumber to sell, no lead to
se)l, and while we realize that the
prosperity of our country depends toa
great extent on thc manufacturing
und niui-producing elements, the consumers have also some rights, and we
would ask you to remember us when
you are changing the tariff, and while
you make it so that manufacturers can
live, on behalf of those who do not
manufacture anything I would ask
that you try and be as reasonable as
you cun, and not make the cost of
living so high that you are going to
make a few millionaires and a great
number of others.' "
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
John Houston has sent in his
resignation, from Goldfields, Nev.,
as mayor of Nelson. The letter haa
a decided tinge of pathos, and even
his most rabid enemies should find
little in it over which to gloat.
John Keyes, a mining man who
owns some promising properties on
Belcher mountain, was brought to
the Cottage hospital last week and
submitted to an operation, which
pr.ived very successful. His daughter. Miss Emma Keyes, of Seattle,
arrived in - the city last Saturday,
and will assist in nursing her father.
The Mountain View and Dividend
claims at Osoyoos lake, which were
recently bonded by the Granby company, are now working twenty-eight
men under John Rogers. Over 909
feet of work bus been done on these
properties since operations were
commenced four months ago. Work
will he carried ou continuously nil
winter. It'is expected that the ore
will average $30 per ton.
Thursday, October 20, will be observed us the Canadian Thanksgiving day this year.
The roofs are now being put on
both the new opera house and eity
hall in Phoenix.
J. IL Hudson, the West end merchant, lias been confined to his home
by an attack of la grippe during the
past week.
Muiiin Roath, who been laid up in
the Cottage hospital with a severe attack of typhoid-pneumonia during Ihe
past six weeks, has recovered suf-
licii'lilly to vacate that institution.
A don! is being arranged for thc
working of the Buttercup, the claim
not fur from Kholt that made such a
ri"h showing in free gold last spring.
Dropped All Others
"I dropped all liniments hut Nerviline because 1 found Nerviline the
quickest to relieve pain," writes K S.
Benton of .St. Johns. "If my children arc croupy or sick, Nerviline
cures them. If a ease of cramps or
stomach ache turns up, Nerviline is
ever ready. We use Nerviline for
neuralgia, rheumatism and all kinds of
aches and pains; it's as good a> any
doctor. The great Canadian remedy
for the past fifty years bus been Pol-
son's Nerviline--nothing better iiiade.

engagements recorded in the world's
history. While all the ships of the
combined fleets were captured, most
of them subsequently escaped during a heavy gale.
A cordial invitation is extended to
all the citizens, no matter of what
nationality, to attend tbe entertain-
meqt in Eagles' hall in the evening.

PUBLISHER'S NOTICE
On the 1st nf next month The Sun
will celebrate its fifth birthday, and
we propose to observe the event by cutting the price of the paper in two, if
paid in advance; if not, $1.50 per
annum will be charged. This will give
every subscriber "who pays $1.00 in
advance 104 copies of The Sun, with
a strong probability that before tho
next year is half ouer tho paper will
be issued every other day. We have
decided to adopt this course as the
fairest one to all our subscribers.
The offering of useless or worthless
premiums only affects a small percentage of a newspaper's clientele; and as
The Sun intends in tho future, as in
the past, to conduct a strictly legitimate publishing business, it leaves
this field clear for those of its esteemed
contemporaries that may desire to enter it. More news is printed in the
two issues of The Sun for the week
than in any other paper published in
the Boundary district, and it is our
intention to materially improve the
service. "Now is the time to
subscribe"—and to pay arrearages.

"Hooligan's Troubles"
"Hooligan's Troubles," which Mi
ager Arthur J. Aylesworth brings to
the Grand Forks opera house on Tuesday, Oct. 31st, is said to make nop
tensions to be other than a farce of
thc most farcial nature. It has one
advantage over other comedies in that
it is mirth-compelling from beginning
to end, and more diverting than many
owing to the almost endless complications in which Hooligan finds himself.
The story is based upon the illustrated
pictures made familiar by Sunday
newspapers in their comic supplements. In a skit of this kind comedians and pretty girls who know how
to sing and dance aae necessary adjuncts. Specialties both quaint and
novel, baliads and popular songs,
dances of a refined nature antl other
features are promised.
