System
The regular bi-weekly meeting of the
city council was held in the council
chamber Tuesday evening, Mayor
Hammar and Aid. Brown, Clements,
Crossen and Henniger being present.
The meeting, compared with other ses
sions, was quite brief, although considerable business was transacted.
A communication from the Cana
dian Fairbanks company informed the
council the new pump recently purchased by the city had been tested before leaving the factory. It also expressed the hope that future tests
would prove more successful.   Filed.
Robert Lindholm asked for and was
granted a rebate of $10 from the fee
advanced for the transfer of his liquor
license from the Norden hotel to the
White House. Mr. Lindholm al
lowed his license to lapse before the
transfer was.
A communication from City Pound-
master Woodhead was referred to the
health and relief committee, Mr.
Woodhead asked for one or iwo more
pounds, feeding stalls and suitable
quarters for storing feed.
The following bills were ordered
paid:
Granby company $ 16.50
Grand Forks Transfer Co......    46.65
W. K. C. Manly .„***•;    44.'p
H. F. Petrie '...,„      1.0b
E.T. Bank  227.60
C.P.R....;      9.19
Canadian General Electric     93.00
' City payroll    99.60
Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that the total cost of laying the Victoria avenue water main had been
$296.60.
Mayor Hammar reported that the
contract with the Granby company
for power would be ready for the
proper signatures on the following day.
Aid. Crossen, chairman of the board
of works, reported that tbe Columbia
street bridge was in a biul condition.
The bolts and rods had not been
tightened for two years, and were get
ting very loose. In some instances
the bolts had been drawn nearly
through the wood, necessitating their
removal and replacing thu present
washers with larger ones. 1 n other
respects the bridge was in good condition. Ho suggested the employment
of a practical bridgeman to repair the
structure, especially as the street com
missioner would be busy down town
with sidewalk repairing, which should
be rushed to completion before the bad
weather sets in. At present there
was a cessation in the work on account
of Lequime k Powers being unable to
furnish tHe lumber. He thought that
if this firm was unable to fulfill its
contract, the clerk should be authorized to buy elsewhere.
Moved by Aid. Clements, seconded
Aid. Crossen, that the city employ an
experienced bridgeman to repair the
Columbia street bridge. Aid. Henniger amended the motion to the effect
that   M. S. Martin be   employed, if
available,   and  in  this form it was
adopted.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Henniger, the clerk was instructed
to purchase lumber for sidewalks at
once, and if Lequime it Powers were
unable to supply the same to purchase
elsewhere.
Aid. Clements submitted a report
of the metre test for electric lights in
the Yale hotel last spring. The mayor
was opposed to the installation of metres in this hotel unless the metre system was introduced throughout the
city, as it would work an injustice on
this house, which was really one of the
best advertisements the Boundary
country possessed. Aid. Clements
thought the mayor was laboring under
a misapprehension. The committee
had merely submitted the report in
order to show the difference in cost
between the flat and metre system
rates. He believed the whole city
should be placed under the metre system. Mr. Hammar replied that the
new contract with the Granby company would practically be on a metre
basis, and this would be an opportune
time to install the system in the entire
city.
Mayor Hammar brought up the
subject of the city granting a bonus to
the Dominion Copper company as an
inducement to locate its new smelter
at this point. Mr. Thomas, he said,
would have. to send in his report to
the head office in Denver tomoojow.
Mr. Thomas had stated that he would
be satisfied if some alderman would
ask leave to introduce a smelter bonus
by-law, which was all that could be
done at this meeting. Greenwood,
Ebolt and Midway were working hard
for the smelter. All had good sites,
but Grand Forks had the best. There
was no scheme or graft connected with
the scheme. It was purely a business
proposition. The smelter would be
cheap to the city at any price.
David Whiteside, who was present,
was invited to speak on this subject,
He said the mayor had fully stated the
case, and he was unabla to odd anything more to it. It had been reported that A. Miller had acquired
the proposed site, and intended to hold
it at an exorbitant price. Such, he
was pleased to say, was not the case.
The proposed bonus would be a small
price for the smelter, as it would
double the population of the city.
Aid. Brown begged leave to introduce, at the next meeting of the
council, a by-law granting a bonus to
tbe Dominion Coppe.i company as an
nduceineut for it to locate its new
smelter in this city.    Granted.
The mayor was authorized to inform
Mr. Thomas of the action taken by the
council.
Consideration of the liquor  license
by-law was postponed until   the next
meeting.
The council then adjourned.

have subcontracted the grading of
practically the entire distance. The
intention of the Great Northern is to
go clear through to the coast, a distance of 380 miles from Grand Forks,

until next summer to complete the

heavy work, the most of the way being the heaviest kind of rock work.
From Midway to Oroville thc grade is
especially hard. The grading is completed to Midway, and steel da being

point and Curlew. We are shipping
steel almost daily up to Curlew, and
intend having that section of the
track entirely completed within two

§296.60.
Mayor Hammar reported that tbe
contract with the Granby company
for power would be ready for the
proper signatures on the following day.
Aid. Crossen, chairman of the board
of works, reported that the Columbia
street bridge was in a bad condition
The bolts and rods hod not been
tightened for two years, and were get
ting vory loose. In some instances
the bolts had been drawn nearly
through the wood, necessitating their
removal anil replacing the present
washers with larger ones. In Other
respects the bridge was iu good condition. He suggested the employment
of a practical bridgeinau to repair the
.structure, especially as the Htrcet com
niissioncr would be busy down town
with sidewalk repairing, which should
be rushed to completion before tbe bud
weather sets in. At present there
was a cessation in the work on account
of Lequime ifc Powers being unable to
furnish the lumber. He thought that
if this firm was unable to fulfill its
contract, the clerk should be authorized to buy elsewhere.
Moved by Aid. Clements, seconded
Aid. Crossen, that the city employ an
experienced bridgeman to repair the
Columbia street bridge. Aid. Henni
ger amended the motion to the effect
thut   M. S. Martin be   employed, if
available,   and   in   this form it  was
adopted.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Henniger, the clerk was instructed
to purchase lumber for sidewalks at
once, and if Lequime ifc Powers were
unable to supply the same to purchase
elsewhere.
Aid. Clements submitted a report
of the metre test for electric lights in
the Yale hotel last spring. The mayor
waa opposed to the installation of metres in this hotel unless the metre system was introduced throughout the
city, as it would work an injustice on
this house, which was really one of the
best advertisements the Boundary
conntry possessed. Aid. Clements
thought the mayor was laboring under
a misapprehension. The committee
had merely submitted the report in
order to show the difference in cost
between the flat and metre system
rates. He believed the whole city
should be placed under the metre system. Mr. Hammar replied that the
new contract with the Granby company would practically be on a metre
basis, and this would be an opportune
time to install the system in the entire
city.
Mayor Hammar brought up the
subject of the city granting a bonas to
the Dominion Copper company as an
inducement to locate its new smelter
ao this point. Mr. Thomas, he said,
would have to send in his report to
the head office in Denver toraooaow.
Mr. Thomas had stated that he would
lie satisfied if some alderman would
ask leave to introduce a smelter bonus
by-law, which was all that could be
done at this meeting. Greenwood,
Eholt and Midway were working hard
for the smelter. All had good sites,
but Grand Forks had the best. There
was no scheme or graft connected with
the scheme. It was purely a business
proposition. The smelter would be
cheap to the city at any price.
David Whiteside, who was present,
was invited to speak on this subject.
He said the mayor had fully stated the
case, and he was unablo to add ahy
thing more to it. It hod been reported that A. Miller had acquired
the proposed site, und intended to hold
it at an exorbitant price. Such, he
was pleased to say, was not the case.
The proposed bonus would be a small
price for the smelter, as it would
double the population of the city.
Aid. Brown begged leave to introduce, at the next meeting of the
council, a by-law granting a bonus to
the Dominion Coppe.1 company as an
nducenient for it t<i locate its new
smelter in this oity.    Granted.
The mayor was authorized to inform
Mr. Thomas of the action taken by the
council.
Consideration of the liquor license
by-law was postponed until the next
meeting.
Tbe counoil then adjourned.

Contractor Shields Says It
Will Take Three Years to
Reach Coast
Steel Will Be Laid to Midway
Within Two Weeks—Labor
Still Scarce
The Similkameen cut-off of the
Great NortheJn will be completed
through - British Columbia up the
Similkameen river and on to the coast,
a distance of about 380 miles from
this city, within three years, according
to a statement made by Contractor L.
E. Shields in Spokane last Tuesday
evening. Mr. Shields, of the contracting firm of Siems ifc Shields,
which has a blanket contract for the
entire work now under way, faid?
."Tho contract for the work from
Midway to Keremeos, a distanco of
118 miles, has been let to us, and we
have subcontracted the grading of
practically the entire distance. The
intention of the Great Northern is to
go clear through to the coast, a distance of 380 miles from Grand Forks,
and it figures on having the road completed in three years. It will take
until next summer to complete the
work for which we uow have a contact; as the entire distance-'i.- .".ry
heavy work, the most of the way being the heaviest kind of rock work.
From Midway to Oroville the grade is
especially hard. Tbe grading is completed to Midway, and steel ,is being
laid on the roadbed between that
point and Curlew. We are shipping
steel almost daily up to Curlew, and
intend having that section of the
track entirely completed within two
weeks. We are being hampered more
or less for lack of laborers, although
we now have about 1500 men at work,
and are increasing our force at tbe
rate of about 60 a day on on average.
This is the biggest piece of railroad
construction work ever undertaken in
the Northwest, with thc exception of
that of the roads in crossing the Rocky
mountains and the Great .Northern's
construction through the Cascades."

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1906
Tbe prompt action of the city
council in taking steps to provide
for a bonus as an inducement to the
Dominion Copper company to locate
its new smelter at this point, will be
commended by the ratepayers generally. The people are fully alive
to the benefits the community would
derive from the location here of the
proposed reduction plant, and itis
safe to predict that the by-law will
carry without a dissenting vote.
The matter of a Hat rate or the metre system for electric light charges
appears to be a periodical bone of
contention in the city council, and
the question will probably continue
to spring up scmi-occasionally until
the city adopts the latter system,
which is unquestionably the fairest
of the two. Under the present plan
the people who only use 'their lights
a couple of hours in the evening have
to help pay the bills of those who
keep theirs burning all night. The
new contract with the Granby company is practically on a metre basis,
and it will probably not be many
months before every consumer in
the city will be paying for exactly
the amount of "juice" which he
uses.
Before leaving Ottawa for Port Arthur at noon last Tuesday the railway commission approved of the
plans of the Vancouver, Victoria &
Eastern railway. A reservation was
made in regard to the Similkameen
& Keremeos railway, for which A.
B. Aylesworth, K.C., appeared, to
the effect that when their proposition
and plans came before the board tbey
would be considered and thc commissioners might give them also a
line at the points asked for. In
other words, their rights, whatever
they are, will not be taken away by
the building of the V., V. & E.,
which, however, gets the first opportunity of building, which is all
that it asked for.
It is reported that James J. Hill
has made a strong alliance with the
Grand Trunk Pacific railway, and
will extend his Vancouver, Westminster & Yukon railway to connect
with tbe new Canadian transcontinental system at some point far
north of Vancouver.
Card of Thanks
We desire to tender our heartfelt
thanks to the people of Grand Forks
and vicinity for the many kindnesses
and courtesies extended us during
our sad bereavement, consequent on
the lamentable accident which befell

Purgatives Are Dangerous
They gripe, cause burning pains and
make the constipated condition even
worse. Fhysicians say the ideal laxative is Dr. Hamilton's Pills of Mandrake and Butternut; they are exceedingly mild, composed only of
health-giving vegetable extracts. Dr.
Hamilton's Pills restore regular movement of the bowels, strengthen the
stomach and purify the blood. For
constipation, sick headache, billious-
ness and disordered digestion no medicine on earth makes such remarkable
cures as Dr. Hamilton's Pills. Try a
25c box yourself.

Strained Back and Side
"While working in a sawmill," writes
C. E. Kenney from Ottawa, "I
strained my back and side so severely
1 bad to go to bed. Every movement
caused me torture. 1 tried different
oils and liniments, but wasn't helped
till I used Nerviline. Even the first
application gave considerable relief.
In three days I was again at work.
Other men ill tbe mill use Nerviline
with tremendous benefit too." An
honest record oj nearly fifty years has
established the value of Poison's Nerviline.
Throw Medicines to the Dogs I
At best they are unpleasant, often
useless. You have some disease of the
nose, throat or lungs. Doctors would
call it bronchitis, asthma or catarr
The common root of these diseases is
germ or microbic irritation. Catajrho-
zone not only destroys disease germs-
it does more, it heals diseased and in-
llamerl tissue. The disease is not only
cared, but its return is forever prevented by using Catarrhozone, which
is splendid also for colds, coughs and
irritable throat. Remember you inhale Catarrhozone—nature's own cure.
Use no other but Catarrhozone—it's
the best catarrh cuse ma<le.

You Are Ailing
Not quite sick, but robbed of ambition to work—find it hard to think
clearly. Not ill enough to think of
dying, but bad enou; h for 1 fe to he
pretty dull. There is a remedy—Ferrozone—that quickly lifts that half-
dead feeling. Gracious, but Ferrozone
makes you feel good; itfsharpens the
dullest appetite, makes it keen as a
razor.
Blood ? Ferrozone makes lots of it,
the rich nouriseing kind that vitalizes
the whoie body. You' 11 be wonderfully quickened, immensely strengthened, feel hearty and vigorous after
using Fejrozone. Buoyant health
surplus vigor and reserve energy all
come from this great restorati ve. Fifty
cents buys a box of fifty tablets at
dealers.

pRINTS* all thc news of the
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the
onl' twice-a-week paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
orojntrolled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a combination of merchants
Ui be medusa means of lauding their own wares, to tho
detriment of their rivals.
The Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
riglit out. He does not '
have to consult half-a-dozen
different parties about what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads Tub St'N twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. *, It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the
Boundary.

When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business demands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our shick and workmanship are of the
best. Let ds estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
