Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, February 21, 1905
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
The Proposed Change of Fire
Chiefs Provokes a Lone
Discussion.
City Decides to lny$st $75
in Advertising Our Resources.   '
The city council held its first
meeting last night under the rules
of the new procedure by-law, which
provides for bi-weekly sessions.
Mayor Hammar and. Aid. Brown,
Clements, Henniger and|Hutton were
present.
A communication was read from
Arthur Wheeler, special staff correspondent of the Victoria Daily
Times, concerning an illustrated
write-up of the city and environments in a special edition of
that paper. Mr. Wbpelar was pres
ent at the meeting, and fully explained the objects ot the publication. He slated that an edition of
50,000 copies would be printed—
10,000 to be distributed at tbe Fort-
land exhibition, 10,000 at the Winnipeg exhibition, and 10,000 at the
Dominion exhibition in New Westminster—and offered a full-page
illustrated descriptive write-up, in'
eluding 100 copies of the paper, for
$75. He read the following letter
from his company, which explains
his mission:
itioTouu, February 14, 1906.
Dear Sir:—We propose to celebrate the twenty-first anniversary of
the founding of the Times—our journalistic coming of age—by issuing an
edition in keeping with the occasion.
Our birthday falls in June, 1905,
and in order to be ready to publish
about that date it is necessary to thus
early draw your attention to our proposal. We will issue an edition of at.
least 32 pages—it may be doubfe
that size—handsomely illustrated, and
dealing with the whole province. The
Lewis and Clarke exhibition at Portland, the Dominion fair at New Westminster and the Winnipeg exhibition
will attract westward thousand of,
people who will see at these places the
products of the west. We propose
to place in their hands a newspaper
which by half-tones and letterpress
will prove to them what British Columbia haB to offer as a field for enterprise aud investment. The number
will be e olosed in a striking cover. It
will deal particularly with the agricultural areas and our mineral wealth,
but no industry will be overlooked
We do not expect to make any money
out of this venture, but will be content if it is a fitting advertisement of
what British Columbia has to offer to
the settler and -investor, and a worthy
souvenir of our coming, of .age. We
want your aid to do this. We hope
to have a representative call on you
later, and trust you will reserve your
advertisement for it; but in tfce meantime we would be glad to have' your
application for space and to quote you
terms.   Yours truly,
The Daily Times Company,
The mayor and all the aldermen
were favorably impressed with Mr.
Wheeler's proposition, and on motion of Aid. Clements and Brown,
the council decided to expend $75
for a full-page advertisement in the
anniversary edition of the Victoria
Daily Times.
Mr. J. M, Simpson, on behalf of
a delegation from the fire department, addressed the council. Mr..
Simpson said it had been rumored
that Mr. Sheads was to be appointed
chief of the fire department, and the
members of the brigade desired to
know if the rumor was correct or
not.
Mayor Hammar explained the
present status of the situation, adding that the police commissioners
had recommended the change, as
the night policeman lacked the time
to properly perform the duties of
fire chief.
Aid. Henniger—Would it be satisfactory to the police commissioners
if tbe council retained Mr. Savage
as fire chief and night policeman?
Mayor Hammar replied that the
appoinment of the fire chief was a
prerogative that rested with the council, but that the police commissioners had the sole right of .naming the
policemen.
Aid. Clements thought that if the
police commissioners had brought
in a recommendation for a change
of chiefs, they must have had some1!
reasons for doing so, and the recommendation should carry considerable
weight.
Mr. I. A. Dinsmore wished to
known if the department would be
consulted regarding the contemplated change.
Aid. Clements—Is* there a fire department in the city?
Mr. Dinsmore—I know of no person more capable of answering that
queftion than Aid. Clements.
Mr. Dinsmore stated that about all
the contention of the department
amounted to was a fight for recogni
tion.
Aid. Clements understood the fire
department was in a disorganized
condition.
Mayor Hammar asked if the firemen had any recommendations to
make, us he would like to know the
wishes of the department.
Aid, Brown spoke in the same
strain.
Aid. Hutton favored retaining for
chief of the department the man re.
commended by the firemen.
Mayor Hammar stated that if tbe
firemen could prove organization
their wishes would certainly be con
sidered.
Aid. Clements Baid the firemen
had not made a report to the council
during the past year. This was probably why the impression had gone
out that the department was in a disorganized condition.
Action in the matter was postponed until the department was .reorganized and brings in recommendations to the council.
A communication was read from
Premier McBride, stating that the
resolutions re the Fourth street
bridge-had beed received, and tbat
they would be duly considered. A
letter of the same tenor was also received from Provincial Engineer
Gamble.   They were ordered filed.
A letter was read from the secretary of tiie British Columbia Tuberculosis league, asking the council to
pass Solutions urging the Dominion and Provincial governments to
establish tuberculosis hospitals in
this Province.
A letter was read from G. H. Burnett, mayor of Victoria, asking the
conncil to pass resolutions urging
the Provincial government to amend
the Municipal Clauses act re taxation for school and municipal purposes.
A communication was read from
the wardens of Holy Trinity church,

The salaries of school teachers are
rising in this district, according to
Public School Inspector Wilson, who
recently made a trip through thc
Boundary country. He is pleased
with the tendency to increase the
salaries to sums approximately proportionate lo the value and the importance of the work done by the
teachers. Nelson set the example in
this respect, until now salaries there
average $71 per month for teachers.
Grand Forks has the distinction of
paying the highest average in the
Province, namely $81, Revelstoke
coming next with $77, and Rossland
third with $74. The people of Grand
Forks are showing great interest in
manual training, and are negotiating
with neighboring cities to secure the
establishment of a center for woodwork in connection with the public
schools of the Boundary country.
In the case of James Harrington,
of this city, against the Granby company, for injuries received at their
smelter here Inst August, and which
has been up for argument for the
past week before the court at Nelson,
the jury could not agree. The action
now goes over until the next sittings
of the court, when a new trial will be
held, unless a settlement is effected
in the meantime.
A meeting of the executive committee of the Provincial Mining association was held in Victoria yester-

The annual meeting of the officers
of the International Coal & Coke
company was held in Spokane last
year. The following officers and
trustees for the year were elected:
Trustees, A. C. Flumerfelt, H. N.
Galer, Clement S. Houghton, Will
G. Graves and Daniel Shultz; officers, A. C. Flumerfelt, president;
H. N. Galer, vice-presidant and
treasurer; secretajy, Will G. Graves.
A full report of the progress in development made by the company in
the last year was made by President
Flumerfelt.   Mr. Flumerfelt said:
We have practically completed the
the equipment of the International
Coal & Coke company at Coleman,
Alta., developed the mines and brought
our tonnage up to a respectable
amount. The property has been
pushed with greater vigor and has
shown better results within the year
than many others in the whole
proV toe. Superintendent Reym/ds
took charge of the properties January
1, 1904, and during the year machinery was received, buildings erected,
railway switches' constructed, waterworks installed, and generally the
whole plant was placed in position
for operation.
We have a battery of 104 standard
beehive coke ovens, 66 of which are
complete, and the balance will be completed as soon as crown bricks can be
hod. The boiler and power house are
built of solid masonry, with stone
walls separating. This building is 82
x78 and contains four 100-horsepower
boilers, and foundations and connections are already in for two additional
boilers, heaters and pumps.
In the power roum we have two 250
kilowart Westinghouse electric generators, which are directly connected
with two 500-horsepower engines from
the Phoenix iron works, We also have
a compressor for an aid lianlage system, which compresses to a pressure
of 1000 pounds.
The electric current generated runs
a 150-horsepower motor, which drives
an 11 -foot Capcll fan with a guaranteed capacity of 150,000 cubic feet of
air per minute. Tho fan is located
ub:>ut a third of a mile from the |Kiwer
house on an outcropping. We have an
air locomotive with which we do ull
our hauling from inside tho mine to
the tipple, and which is working very
satisfactorily. The tipple is a well
built structhre, containinguliout .'MM),-
000 feet of timber, Its bins have it
capacity for about 2500 tons of coal
and slack and is so arrunged that the
coal and slack drop into separate bins.
As the mine curs upprouoh the tipple
they run over a weight scale, nnd
from there unto a self-dumping e ige,
which is raised to the top of the tipple
by a 100-horsepowcr hoist. When
these cages arrive at the top they
dump the coal unto screens, the slack
goes through into slack bins and the
coal onto a picking table. We huve
two picking tables five feet wide and
forty feet long. These ure run hy a 25-
horsepower motor, and as the coal
passes over these picking tables all
rock and refuse material is picked off.
We have a complete machine shop and
are able to do all our own repairs.
We have a warehouse and stock supply and duplicate purts of the machinery, which stock umount-s to about
$20,000.

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1905.
Phoenix occupies a very enviable
position among British Columbia
cities as regards its corporate financial standing ; but it surely is false
economy to refrain from providing
an adequate water supply to over
come an ordinary fire, as occurred
there last week. Built as Phoenix
is, and almost entirely of wooden
buildings, the place is liable to be
swept out of existence if a fire and a
heavy wind in the wrong direction
occur at the same time. Low taxes
are an attraction to newcomers to a
community, as well as to the older
residents, but they are lost sight of
when the property owner considers
tbat in event of a fire all his possessions are apt to be swept away because of the lack of water to overcome the flames. A good water service is an absolute necessity in any
city that aspires to be progressive.
Something new in the dramatic
line in Grand Forks was introduced
at the recent performance of "Your
Neighbor's Wife," in offering to give
an hour's concert after the regular
show for two bits, a la circus style.
This is a practice which should be
stopped before it has begun. With
seats at a dollar each, goodness
knows, the companies usually appearing in the smaller Western cities
will need to show off their very best
accomplishments to earn the prices
regularly charged, without any further bonus. For lack of patronage
the concert was not given that night.
The Rossland carnival people refrained from advertising their attraction in the newspapers this year,
depending upon posters. The result,
so far as Grand Forks is concerned,
was that less than half a dozen persons went over from this city this
year, instead of the usual hundred or
so in former years.
F. J. Deane, of The Nelson News,
is mentioned as the probable Liberal
organizer for British Columbia, to
succeed Ornanizer Sloan, recently
elected by acclamation to represent
Comox-Atlin in the Dominion house,
und who has resigned owing to his
parliamentary duties.

The Great Northern railways has

daily, or about 300 tons. This
amount will be increased later on.
The ore shipped all comes from the

were requested to put in their estimates for the present year.
The mayor brought up the question of donations for the coming
year. It appears to be the sense of
the council that none should be
granted, except in cases where absolutely necessary, and that the fire department should come first in this
respect.
Thc chairman of the water and
light committee reported that he had
taken over $193.20 worth of Electrician Waterston's stock. The clerk
was authorized to purchase additional supplies as needed.
On motion of Aid. Henniger and
Brown, a rate of $2.50 was established for tt.awing out water pipes on

The question of securing a water

was laid over.
Mayor Hammar reported that
when the council next met the rearrangement of the city offices would
be completed.
The council decided to have a ventilator installed in the city offices.
The council then adjourned.
ITS NEW OFFICERS.
Conducted from First Page.
The coal runs out of the tipple bins
by gravity, through a shoot into cars.
We have installed an Ottumwa boxcar
loader, with a guaranteed capacity-of
150 tons an hour. The slack for the
ovens is taken from the slack bins and
conveyed by electric carriages along a
trestle to the coke ovens; where it is
charged. At the charge we have a
50-horsepower boiler and a five by
seven hoist, which we have used for
development work, but which will
huve to be replaced by a larger hoist
should our shipments be increased, as
we expect to get a good share of our
tonnage from this slope. We have installed a water system throughout the
town and also to supply our coke
ovens and boilers, at a cost of about
$9000. We have a good supply of
good water and a pressure of about
130 pounds; It is our intention to
put in wires for electric lighting of
the town, and the income from this
will be about $300 a month. The
cost of installing the plant will be
about $2000.
In the-last year we huve shipped
51,000 tons of coul und coke. On one
of the seams in the mine we have done
7825 feet of work, on another seam
2522 feet of work, and with crosscut
between slopes and uirways driven in
coal there has been done ubout 11,978
feet of work. If the murket cun be
secured, it will be a comparatively
easy matter to produce about 2000
tons of coal a day.
Mr. Flumerfelt asked the officers
present for authority to issue bonds
on the property for a sum to be later
decided upon for means to further develop the mine. If the bonds are issued, Mr. Flumerfelt assured the directors that it would be but a short
time until the mine would be paying
dividends.
"There are probably no ottie* industries in the northwest so beneficial to
the community as coul mining and
coke making," said Mr. Flumerfelt.
"Every dollar expended in the country for coal ond coke makes it just
that much richer, and with development of the coal mine larger industries
are induced to come in."

Death's fateful trinity rhey are
often called. Catarrh is the first
stage, pneumftnia often follows, and
consumption finally exacti th* full

an antiseptic that penetrates the remotest air cells of the lungs. Catarrhozone reaches the entire mucous Bur-
face of the throat and breathing apparatus; it carries health wherever it
goes, brings instant relief and is absolutely certain to cure. Don't delay,
get Cattr.hozone today. It means
health, certain cure. Two months'
treatment 81.00, trial size 25c. Catarrhozone is guaranteed. H. E.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through thc
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?     •**■
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line ofthe World,"
thc only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver criroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standant and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each ill-charge nf a competent guide,
whose business is to look after thc
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

MANY SltoDEH DEATHS
Are traced to a heart that was neglected. If your heart is weak or beati
too rapidly you need Fe.rozone to
strengthen the heart's muscles, regulate its action and stop smothering
spasms. Ferrozone always cures weak
heart and restores this organ to a
strong, healthy state. The best heart
medicine in the world is Ferrozone,
which beats any substitute. Widely
used by doctors and sold at 50c per
box by H. E, Woodland, druggist.
■tarts la Life.
Bom* of th* men of education have
had to start as rag sorters. A surprising number bar* begun with dishwashing. Among them I have known
■ musician and two seminarists wbo
hare become waiters; a bricklayer1 who
now owns a hotel and Is worth $100,-
000; a civil engineer who threw aside
the dish rag for a porter's Job and, after seven years' bard work and saving,
has Just become a partner in a prosperous expressing and shipping business.
A typical esse Is that of a young doctor who came to America to make hts
fortune with • hundred spare dollars
In his pocket. Hs tramped about New
Tork for weeks to find work to suit
him. He was starring before a friendly Comasco cook got him a chance tn
wash dishes. He lost his self respect,
he said, and seemed to fall lower and
lower until he resolved to learn English and a trade. He Is now a skilled
ladles' tailor and earns $35 a week during the busy season.
Aaeloat Tailor.' Laws.
An old labor Isw In England In fore*
In 1783 contained the following six
clauses: Any tailor who joined a onion
was to be sent to Jail for two months.
Tailors must work from 6 o'clock In
the morning until 8 at night Wages
were not to be higher than 48 cents a
day. Bach tailor was to be allowed t
cents for breakfast Any tailor who refused to work was te be Imprisoned
for not more than two months. If any
employer paid higher wages be was to
be fined $25, and the workmen who
took the Increase were to be sent to
jail for two months.
A ■asi Me Crast.
A good story Is told of a Barry lady
who In making some pie mistook pits,
ter of parls for flour and did not find
out her mistake until the pie bad been
served up. For once pie crusts and
promises bore no similarity, and tht
pie was burled In tbe back garden,
doubtless to be discovered In the future as Roman remains.
