The bi-weekly meeting of the

Crossen, Henniger, Hutton and
McCallum being present.
Tenders for tbe position as auditor of the city books were received
us follows: C. A. S. Atwood, $150;
W. G. Hodges, 8250; Colin Campbell, $10 per day, the time not to
exceed 26 days, he also agreeing to
furnish comparative statements for
the yeara 11)04 and ii)05. On a vote
being taken Mr. Campbell received
a majority, and wag therefore appointed to the position.
The following accounts were ordered paid:
California Electric Works $3.00
J. M. Simpson    3.75
T. Mclntyre     2.9O
C. P. R  49.46
T. A. Wright    9.50

Chas. Harrigan 1    2.70
H. Griffin.  14.70
F. Taylor tt?.'..    4.20
Geo. Oriniston    4.20
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported the extension of the electric light system to
the Boundary Iron Works practically completed, aud that the- survey for the line to Mr. Duffy's residence had been made.
Aid. Brown reported . that the
finance committee had exa'nined tin
city books, and, as far as they knew,
the same were in good shape.
■ Fred Clark, president of the Amn
tetir Athletic association, addressed
the council, and mude a request for
free water and light for the skating
rink und gymnasium and public
reading room. The rink would bi
completed on Wednesday. The
money necessary tq finance the asso-
ciution bad been raised by voluntary
contiibutions, and tbey intended to
conduct it in a businesslike manner
and account for every cent at the
end of the season. Tbey also hoped
to huve something iu the treasury
when the season was over. The object of asking for free water and ligbt
wns to reduce expenses, and he
Imped the council could see its way
clear to grunt the request.
The mayor said that skating wns
u healthy nnd clean sport, und
should be encouraged. Aid. McCullum desired to known tho na'ur-
of the reading room. If the usso-
oiution intended to maintain n free
reading room the request was n very
mild one. Mr. Clark replied thut
they intended to furnish a room
neatly, and nt first put in a line of
light literature — magazines and
daily papers. Later a library would
be added by public donations. Aid.
Crossen wished to know if it had been
customary in former years to give
the rink free water and light. The
mayor replied that lust year it was
conducted as a money making
scheme, and the owners had to pay
for these privileges. On former occasions, however, the city had donated the water and light. Aid.
Clements was of the opinion that if
a system of switches was installed
in the business*.hotises, and the merchants requested not to use any
more light than absolutely required
for fire and police protection, enough
power could be saved to offset the
free lights. On motion of Aid.
Brown and McCaHum, the request
of Mr. Brown was granted.
The clerk wns instructed to notify
the merchants that the night rate
would be charged for lights left
burning all night.
The water and light committee
and the city electrician were instructed to install switches in the
business houses.
The city solicitor reported that the
deeds to the cemetery had been exe
cuted. On motion, he was instruct
ed to have them registered.
The council voted $25 for space in
and copies of the holiday edition of
the Phoenix Pioneer.
The ward division by-law was reconsidered and finally passed.
The mayor's remuneration by-la'
was the next order of business, but
Aid. Clements suggested that the
aldermen's indemnity by-law be
taken up first, as he understood
some changes were contemplated in
the latter that might have a bearing
on thc former.
A motion, made by Aid. Crossen
and Henniger, to reconsider and
finally pass the aldermen's indemnity by-law resulted in a tie vote,
Aid. Crossen, Henniger and McCullum voting in the affirmative and
Aid. Brown, Clements und Hutton
in the negative. The mayor refused
tu cast the deciding vote on the
ground jhat he would be voting himself a salary.
With the consent of the mover
and seconder, the by-law was rerom
mitted, and an amendment making
the indemnity $150 instead of $225,
and the fine for non-attendance $6
instead of So, was offered. The
amendment was voted down, and
the original clause, as well ns the bylaw, was again adopted in commit*
tee. The committee .then ruse and
reported, nnd the by-law passed ils
thiril rending fnr the second time.
. During the discussion on the bylaw, Aid. Clements said the aldermen were entitled to indemnity, but
the city eouldn't afford to pay any.
Aid. McCallum bad made no election pledges on this subject, anil
would support the by law. Aid.
Brown favored a lower salary, us
the council hnd only met twice 11
month  during the past year.   Ho
didn't think the alileniieii had
earned tbe aiiinunt nuiiieil. Aid.
Henniger tboig'it he was entitled
to sonic salary. If he hnd voted
nguinst the by-law he wouldn't accept any. Aid. Crossen hadn't
b 0 ight in tbe by-law from a personal motive of gain, but simply because be thought it was just und
fair. Aid. McCalluin hud been in
tbe council six years. The present
council bad done more work than
any preceding one, in spite of the
fact that it bad only met twice a
month. Aid. Hutton couldn't add
anything to what he said at tha lust
meeting. He objected to leaving "the
by law to the last moment. The
mayor said be had received $400 last
year und hud been re-elected. Tho
city wns in better finuncinl condition now than it had been for years.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
McCallum, tho mayor's remuneration by-law waB reconsidered and
finally passed.
Peter Donaldson, Thomis Foulston and Peter Wright were appointed deputy returning officers in the
approaching city election.
Aid. Brown gave notice that he
would introduce a cemetery by-law
at the next meeting.
The council then adjourned.
About midnight last Friday fire
bvoke out in No. 1 crusher building
of the Granby mines at Phoenix, and
in an hour reduced the structure to
ashes. The Phoenix and Grailby firemen promptly responded and succeeded in saving the huge Knob Hill
bunkers adjoining the crusher building. The loss is roughly estimated at
between $20,000 aud $30,000, with
insurance.
The full capacity of eight furnaces
s now running at the Granby smelter treating about 2500 tons of ore
daily. Over 300 men are now employed at the big reduction plant.
From present indications, the
man who said the snow would remain in Grand Forks until spring,
will soon be entitled to another
guess.

PAYS A DIVIDEND
Granby to Disburse $405,-
000 on Company's Net
Issue
Other Interesting   Business
Transacted at Shareholders' Meeting
A 3 percent dividend, aggregating
8105,000, was declared by tbe shareholders of the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smilting k Power company,
in session in New York last Thursday. The dividend applied only to
issued stock. Other business of au interesting nature was transacted. It
was decided to rearrange the shares of
the sliares uf the coinyany to increase
the par value of shares from, if 10 tn
$100. The reason of this is because
it is desired to list the stock on the
New York exchange, which does not
trade ill shares in less than $100
lots. Granby is now dealt ill on tile
Boston exchange also, and as the
brokers' commissions are based exclusively on $100 shares, trades in (Iran
by $10 sliares lire relatively more expensive than slioulu be the ease. The
stoek is also handled on the New York
curb and tlio llorlin stoek exchange.
The shareholders also approved of the
plan to secure an amendment in the
Canadian charter to permit 4I1U dir-'C
tors to declare dividends without recourse to the shareholders, as is required iii the present charter.'

The complimentary smoker tendered the Granby smelter employees
in Eagles' hall last night by the
Fraternal Order of Eagles was a big
success, the hall being crowded from
the time it commenced until "Auld
Lang Syne" was sung at about midnight. An ample supply of clay
pipes and tobacco had been laid in,
and the liquid refreshments were
sufficient to satisfy everybody present.
A long program of vocal and instrumental music, recitations, dances
and glove contests had been prepared, and all the numbers were admirably rendered.
The address of welcome was delivered by H. A. Sheads, president
of the Eagles. He complimented the
smeltermen on the diplomatic man
ner in which tbey gained the eight-
hour day, and hoped that the rela
tions between the Granby manage
ment und its employees would al
ways be as friendly as they aro at
present. The smoker had been tendered them as a murk of appreciation
on the part of the citizens on their
obtaining the shorter workday with
out resorting to a strike. He wanted
all to have a good ".ime.
An overture was rendered by
Messrs, Duffy and George, and Messrs.
Stendall and Win. Bunting, both of
whom have splendid voices, followed
with songs. Mr. Williams brought
down the house with u series of comic
songs, aud Dr. Dickson rendered a
piano solo in a manner that wo ild
have made all his patients, bad thev
been ]iresent,feel better. Mr. Mitchell,
chemist at the Granby assay olliee,
also gave a piano solo that assayed
high in merit. Arthur Napper plcasci
the crowd with two catchy songs
Mesrs. Dewdney, Dully, Mader and
Sheads gave a couple of selections on
the violin, mandolin and guita*, and
Mr. tiuinn followed w tl a fine exhibition of step dancing. .1. It. Vaule,
of Danville, sang a comic song that
gained him half au hour's applause,
and Mr. Lawder also scored a decided
hit by giving a couple of popular aln
Songs were also acceptably rendered
by Messrs. Vaughan and Kellet, and
.liulge Cochrane was heartily up
pluuded for giving his favorite recitation—the balcony scene from "Borneo
and Juliet."
A spirited glove contest between
Wm. Bunting and John Nelson was
also pulled off, The contest proved to
be a very good exhibition of the
manly art, both the contestants showing themselves to be very handy with
the mitts.
After the council meeting Mayor
Hammar, accompanied by all the mem
bers of*tbe citv gOAernment, entered
the ball. The mayor, on being called
tm   for   a   spt li, congratulated   the
snielternieii   on  their  easy vietorv iu
\ * *
gaining the eight hour day. He was
of the opinion that the ease with
which they gained their point was due
in a measure to the cluuacter of the
men employed at the smelter. If
Superidtendent Hodges had had a less
gentlemanly body of men to deal with
the battle might not have been so
easily won. The eight-hour day would
benefit the business community as well
as the smelter employees. Although
a slight reduction in the men's wages
had been made, ho expressed the belief that eventually the old standard of
pay would prevail at the smelter.
Aid. McCallum was also called on.
Mr. McCallum said that the mayor
and himself always prepared the same
speech, and on this oecasion Mr. Hammar had delivered it. He congratulated the smeltermen on their great
victory.
A burlesque boxing contest ended
the entertainment. Olaf Johnson was
knocked out and carried away on a
stretcher, When he recovered his
supposed wife made it decidedly interesting for him. .
The smoker, taken all in all, was
very cleverly managed, and everybody
had an enjoyable time. The Eagles
are past masters at getting up entertainments of this nature. About 300
persons were in attendance. H. A.
Sheads was chairman of the program
and arrangements. Martin Dufour
was chef of the cuisine, and scored his
customary triumph  in that capacity.
Party of Eighteen Leave This

far as Franklin camp, and a corps of
eighteen men will the city on Thursday for the upper North Fork country for that purpose. The line has already been surveyed as far as the base

40 miles, will lie surveyed this winter.
This move is taken to mean that the
Kettle Valley line will renew its application to the local legislature next

part of the program was sustained by

The entente cordiale between the
Wo    factions   of  the   Conacrvative,
party   in   Nelson, heralded   to  the j
outside world as having been effect-*
ed   by  Premier McBride on l is re- j
cent   visit   to that city, appears to,
have   been   short  lived.   The   Sir
John A. Macdonald Conservative association was organized in that city
yesterday, and the members of the
party have Again established separate camping grounds.    It   is   said
that the two factions are  not avowedly  hostile to each other, the new
organization having been formed as a
result of a disagreement. The young
fledgeling appears to possess a superfluity of the sinews of war, as it
intends to establish and  maintain
a daily paper.
The civic election is drawing closer

"The Polmatier sisters, who up
peared nt Stone's Music Hall Inst
evening, presented an unique entertainment, which included all the
elements of a first-class musical entertainment, with a bright concert
flavor. Their program consisted of
soprano, cornet, and trombone solos, quintettes/ vocal nnd instriiinen
till trios, and were tendered in a
style quite refreshing aud picturesque garbed in costume. Mr. Chas.
W. Hitchcock in his dramatic monologues is worthy of special mention,
as bis 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-
loving people of Fiugomay have an
opportunit to her this excellent company again in the near future, and
it is safe to say that the "standing

in evidence."—Fargo (N. D.) Daily

tender age, spelled a low voiced comment:
"Not very p-r-e-t-t-y."
To her horror, the small maiden
paused on the threshold mid, fixing a
contemptuous eye upon the culprit, remarked, with lofty composure:
"No, not very p-r-e-t-t-y, but rather
