ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
The City Council
Street   Sprinkling   Proposition   Thoroughly Ventilated.
After a Long Discussion, the Mayor Casts the Deciding Vote
for Sprinkling—Street Carnival Scheme Laid
Over for One Week.
The regular weekly meeting of the
city council was held last night in
the council chamber, Mayor Hani-
mar, Aid. Clement, McCallum, Mc-
Nee and Hutton being present.
The lirst. business taken up waa a
communication from the business
men of tbe city, which was presented by J. W. Jones, who had
during the day got tbe business men
to sign it. The paper stated the
amount eaeh one was willing to pay
per month for the purpose of streeet
sprinkling, and they asked that the
city make up tbe balance. Mr.
Jones stilted that if street sprinkling
was to be done this summer, he
thought he was entitled to do the
work, as he was keeping a team in
the city stable for thc benefit of the
corporation in tbe event of fire. His
charges for sprinkling would be $6
per day. Mayor Hammar stated
that he also thought that Mr. Jones,
after purchasiligthe city team,should
be given the preference. Aid. Mc-
Calluni said he did not know there
was any strings on the selling of the
team. If he had thought so, he
would not have consented to the
sale. Thc mayor replied tbat there
was no strings in connection with
tbe transaction. Aid. Clements was
in favor of having the work done by
the day, as there would be lots of
days wben sprinkling would be unnecessary. Aid. Hutton also expressed himself as in favor of giving
thc work to Mr. Jones. Aid. Clemen's then introduced the following
resolution: Tbat thc board of works
be authorized to engage a heavy
team to sprinkle the streets wben
necessary at a price not to exceed tli
per day, or CO cents per hour. Mr.
Jones objected to the wording of tbe
resolution. He said be did not think
it was fair to give someone else a
chance of doing the work after he
had set the price. It bad always
bc'ii a ngular thing to charge
87 per day for work done for the
city, or any one else, for tbat mat'
ter, und be had cut thc price to 80
and would save the city $1 per day.
Thc mayor again stated that Jones
should certainly get the preference.
A number of teamster had told him
that it was an outrage to cut tbe
price below 87, nnd after Jones had
made a saving to the city, tbe contract should beawarded to him, under
thesupervisionof some one named by
the council. At this juncture Aid.
McCallum arose and addressed the
council. He said he did not wish
to appear obstinate, but he had very
good reasons for opposing the resolution introduced by Aid. Clements.
In the first place, there had been a
lot of talk and dissatisfaction among
the ratepayers on account of having
to pay for the sprinkling of the
streets opposite the business house. I
Secondly, the main reason for disposing of the eity team was that it
would save some $000 a year in
street sprinkling; nnd thirdly, in
other cities in British Columbia the
business men paid for the sprinkling
of the streets in front of their
own stores. These, he thought,
were sufficient reasons why he would
vote against the resolution. If the
council decided to pay a man to
sprinkle the streets, it wus only fair
to Mr. Jones that the city should ask
for tenders by the month, as on
former occasions. Aid. Hutton said
he did not like to support thc motion for the reason that tbe paying
out for four or five months' sprinkling would be a big item and would
make the expenses look big at the
close of the yeai. He did not think
the money for the work should come
out of the general fund. He thought
if tbe street"! were sprinkled on Saturday afternoons it would be sullic-
icnt. Mayor Hammar said tbis
scheme would be like throwing away
money, as the streets would be as
dry as ever on the following day.
Aid. Clements thought it would be
unfair to ask the business men to
pay for the entire sprinkling bill, as
other people coming into the sprinkled district were also benefited. Il
was a bard proposition to deal with,
he said, but thc sprinkling should be
done. Aid. McCallum said, "Why
not give the business men a bonus
and let them handle the proposition
if they want tbe sprinkling done."
Thc mayor then asked if there was
n seconder to Aid. Clements' motion.
Silence reigned supreme, hut no seconder came forward. Aid. Clements
then amended his resolution so as to
read that the work be given to Mr.
Jones, and Aid. McNee seconded it.
Tbe mayor then put the motion us
amended, with the result that Aid.
Clements and McNee voted for nnd
Hutton and McCullum against it,
making a tie. Tbe mayor said ns he
thought it wns a good proposition
he would risk the deciding vote ill
its favor. Thc amount subscribed by
tho business men up to last night for
street sprinkling was 857 per month
for five months.
S. H. Hampden interviewed the
council regarding a street carnival,
which he proposes to get up during
the week thc races are on here, providing the council would agree to
illuminate and decorate the city
during the week. With a flowery
and eloquent flow of language that
would have been a credit to a presidential nominee in the states, he
outlined his scheme, which in brief
is as follows: If the city will agree
to furnish light to illuminate the
streets in different colors and decorate the streets with arches and so on,
he will undertake to do the rest.  He
had no doubt but that he" could
bring in at least 5000 people to visit
the city during tbe carnival, lie
said he had carried out such affairs
hefore in cities like Oakland, San
Francisco and San Jose, and he had
done so successfully. The mayor
and aldermen seemed to think favorably of the proposition, and will
give Mr. Hampden an answer next
Mo.iday night.
The following uccounts were ordered paid: W. Waterston, $21;
VV. Woodhead, $3; H. L. Newett,
$1.50; D. Woodhead, $11.40; V.&
N. Te). Co., $9; The Stillwell-Brice
& Smith-Vaile Co., $42.50.
A request from "Mr. Mcllwaine for
city water to his premises was granted, provided he pays all expenses
connected with putting in the sa*ne.
SUNSET  SAUNTERINGS
The Grand Forks baseball team
ran an excursion to Republic lust
Sunday over the Hot Air line, which
was well patronized. About. 100
people went over to witness the game
between Grand Porks and Republic,
which was played there in the afternoon hefore a large turn-out of spectators. Tbe Grand Forks boys bad
it pretty much their own way all
through the game, finishing with n
score of 1G to 5 in their favor. The
teams lined up as follows: Grand
Po-ks—Russell, Farrell, Tutt, Slo-
per, Clyde, Mclntyre, McLennan,
Jackson, Coryell; Republic—Campbell, Brouilett, Verlle, McMnhon,
Williams, Wa'sh, Lowery, Notris
and Richardson. The best of feeling and good humor prevailed
throughout the whole play, and the
visitors speak in the highest ter rs
of the treatment received nt tbe
hands of the Republic boys from the
time tbey arrived until their departure. On tho 24th of May tbe He-
public tenm will play a return match
with thc loeal club. They will also
bring a hose reel and team to compete with a tenm from the Grand
Forks lire brigade. With plenty of
practice the home ball club should
make a good showing, and if there
Is a pennant hung up for Southern
British Columbia tbey will mnke a
good run for it.
Frequently people wonder why
one play makes n success nnd another a failure, more especially when
the unsuccessful production seems
the superior of its more favored contemporary, The secret lies iu this,
while the play that has failed to
"inuliegooil" bus tho greater literary
merit, it lacks the necessary requirements to make it palatable to the
masses. The author bas sacrificed
the tastes of the public at the shrine
of art, nnd failure is his penalty.
Herein lies the strength of Elmer
Walter's successful production, "A
'thoroughbred Tramp." The public have been given what they want,
and have responded so thoroughly
thnt it stands today at the head of
its class of attractions. This excellent attraction is booked at the Biden
opera bouse for Thursday evening,

Jay P. Graves, manager of the
Granby smelter at Grand Porks, nnd
Patrick Welch, manager of the rail-
nmd contracting firm of Foley Bros, i
Larson, returned from St. Paul yesterday, says today's Spokesman-Review. A financier of this city who
is close to both the railroad and tho
Granby people, says they were eaHt to
confer with JameB J. Hill on the
building of a spur of the S. F. tt N.
into the Granby mines at-Phoenix, and
succeeded in their mission. When
asked of the construction of the spur
Mr. Graves did not deny it, hot said
he had nothing to say on the subject
now.
The Phoenix Pioneer states that it
hns been informed, and the information is said to come from an unquestioned source, thnt James J. Hill
hns finally made the decision to
build tbe Phoenix branch of his railway this year, and to undertake
the work without delay. It is further said that work will be rushed
as fast ns possible und thnt trains
will be running inside of four
months—a feat of construction that
is not thought possible by novices,
at least, in ruilwuy matters. For
some months past absolutely no in
formation has been obtainable regarding when the railway would bo
built, or positively whether it would
be constructed at all .this year.
These uncertainties are now set at
rest completely, as the intense activity that will prevail very shortly
all along the line of construction will
testify.

manager of the Kettle Valley lines,

'IfJESDAY, MAY 17, 1904
The Japanese bottling works continue to work overtime. Port Arthur is still being bottled up seven
times a week.
A ferocious wild-cat was killed in
Spokane last week- Still there are
some people who maintain that Spokane is not a typical western mining;
camp.
People arc so unreasonable. The
Sun.has received numerous requests
of late to "roast" people and things
in general. In order to "roast" effectively, it is quite necessary that
the "roaster" should be hot. And
it is only two weeks sinee The Sun
man visited Phoenix! The old nmii
is' pretty.swift sometimes, but it is
too much to expect him to thaw out
in so short a time.
Some of thc city fathers who were
SO favorably disposed toward selling
the city when the policy of retrenchment was innuguarated in civic affairs at the beginning of the year, will
now see thc folly of disposing of it
just when the city could have made
good use it. The bill for teaming
from tbe time it was sold until snow
Hies this fall will be a big one—
much larger than if thc team had
heen retained.

He Received His Sight.
A stiAy of a man blind from birth nnd
who can now see, is told by a Londo:
'Daily Mail" correspondent. It was oi
Vpril 24 that John Canulli left his horn
■U Croft Head, Brldg> of Weir, for th
ilaagow Ophthalmic Hospital, where th.
ipBratlon which gave him his sight \vn.-
.fiformed, ''The lirst hoe he saw wa
lia't of Dr. Stewart, tie did not know
-/hat it was at ilrst, but when the doctor
poke he knew that what he wus looking
t must be a face. It was like a dream
I was bewildered/ said Carruth; 'nl
vas so beautiful.' Then the day after thi
Iteration. That waa the day the ban
luges were removed, i'hen Carruth be
iidd the flrat woman lie had ever seoi.
•he was Nurse Mellor. 'I knew she wu-
t woman because her face was pale anil
-tmooth. I was too long in Beeing Di
itamaay. I shoula like to have seen hi*
face lirst.'
"No words were too good for 'Nurse.
>r for all the nurses. And his mother'
With what emotion he spoke of tin
list time lu- saw her, '1 kind of sui'prisr
her,' he said, proudly. 'She came lo tli
ivard and aaid, "How ave you gottln;
im!" Well, i had a peep at her M>
vays and asked her how many wrinkle
die had on her brow. Then she saiii
joyfully, "You can see. How can yoi
teUt Can you count themt" I eottld no.
*ce aye enough for that, but I could w<\
'ter dear face.'
"Thcr., what does lie think nf vromei
iow that he first beholds them! Thcj
ire very beautiful, he says, 'They «'■
•mem bo good. I think tiie world turn
thc people in it are line. I have alway-
!this with a touch of pride) thought i
jood deal of the ladies, and now it is s>
rood to are their fuee.-i. to look nt them
hi their fine dresses. They always tot.
■ae women were my best friends, ami 1
ilwnys knew they were, but now I know
it more than ever. They are ao kind ami
gentle, beautiful nnd graceful.'
"What did he think of the earth! 'Oh,
it is lovelyl So much lovelier and great
er than I had ever thought or imagined.
[ am surprised aud overjoyed. I hnd
never thought there was such difference
and variety in the appearance of things.
Coming home I was really overwhelmed
as we rushed past the green fields am!
trees,'"
Carruth learns every moment. He say*.
that he often dreamed that lie would sue
the world, but he never imiglned Itosli U.
He had no idea there were so many people on earth. Carruth is in a curious fix
with his neighbors. Ite knows them nil
by the sound of their voice. In his
blindness they called to him and he replied, but now when he sees them he is
unable to recognize them unt'l they
speak.

—excellence of thc work nnd promptness in

DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
.FOR    ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices hns been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of tho newspvper world have
been upon The News for thc past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given thut paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to plnce
The News at the price of SI.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead thc publishers to
make such a reduction iu price.
But just ns the' dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and over-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon thc intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance Suofl a combination presents many Unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
thc home and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all oyer thc world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to sec
thc paper lirst, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.
