Fourth Year.-No. 29
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, Fdtmry 7, 1905
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
First Carnival ofthe Season,
Friday Night, Was a
Big Success,
Skating Public Wants Another Held in About
Two Weeks
The first carnival of th* season
was held at the skating rink Friday
night, and proved an unqualified
success, due to the untiring efforts
of Mr. Taylor, the hustling rink
manager. There were considerably
over 100 skaters in costume, including many ingenious rij-ups. The
antics of some of the wearers of these
and the funny combinations which
the costumed skaters assumed when
skating together, thoroughly amused
tne 300 or so spectators, whose principal occupation during the earlier
part of the evening was trying to decide the personality of tht maskers,
A couple of large bonfires added to
the picturesqueness of the scene and
to tbe comfort of the spectators. W,
t H. Itter's gramophone supplied ex-
cellent music during the evening.
Mrs, A. B. W. Hodges and Messrs,
Munro and Morrison were the judges,
and awarded prizes as follows for best
costumes:
Lady's, Miss Lily Taylor, Artist.
Gentlemen's, H, J. Birnie, Uncle
Sam- "j>   ■
Comic, D. Nichol, KaHBasTarmer.
Boy's, Geo. Long, Coon. ■»,-*
Girl's,  May Fraser, Red Riding
Hood. ,.^=
The races, while they were not at
all fast, furnished considerable sport.
In the speed race nine starters lined
up, but most of them fell down before a quarter of the distance had
been covered. Norman Ross won,
with Joe Feeney and L. Mader close
up. In the egg We much delay was
caused in getting the starters in order,
for pretty nearly every tad in town
who could stand on skates entered
this event, and while few of them
could race much, they could all
break eggs, and as the object of the
race was ro cause amusement, it was
a. success, for the efforts of some of
the youngsters to work through the
bunch and get his egg in the can
were funny, and many a one lost his
temper and slammed bis egg in the
receptacle as if it it didn't count if
he did break it.   Ross won this also,
Being (he first carnival of the season, everything went, in order to
make tho affair popular, and rules
were noticeable by their absence. At
the next one, however, entries for
the races will be received the previous day, when only those will be
accepted who are capable of racing,
which will give speeders an opportunity to make time without running over laggards who have fallen
laps behind.
Another carnival will be given in
about two weeks, as the management have been requested by many
skaters and spectators to have another before the soft weather comes,
when it is hoped more ladies will appear in costume.
Over half of those appearing in
costume neglected to give their name
at the door, but the following is a
list of those handed in :
Mrs. Waterson, Queen of Night;
Misses Lily Taylor, artist; Winnie
Stewart, Night; Edna Traunweiser
and Kate Hoffman, the twins; Edith
Miller, ghost; Amy Disney, Spanish
girl; AdaLivesley, Union Jack; May
Fraser, Red Riding Hood; Priscilla
Kelly, flower girl. Messrs. H. J.
Birnie, Uncle Sam; D. Nichol, Kansas farmer; Geo. Long, coon; W. H.
Itter, the King's Jester; S. Harrigan, nurse; Geo. Nye, Bedelia; A.
Napper, policeman; J. Dunlop, Red
Domino; F. Hyndman, Panhandle
Pete; J. Burley, cop; G. Snider, Indian; S. T. Hull, Pierrot; R. Graham, devil; R. Simpson, smoker;

Died, in this city, on Sunday
morning, at 4 o'clock, Charles Hark-
ness, aged 21 years, of tuberculosis,
after a short illness. Deceased was
employed at the Granby smelter, and
was one of the most popular men at
the big works on the hill. He came
to this city from Trail, where his
father, brother and sister now reside.
The funeral was held yesterday afternoon, and it was very largely attended by the citizens generally, and by
the members of his family from
Trail. The funeral services, which
were very impressive, were conducted by Rev. J. R. Robertson. Much
regret is being expressed by Mr.
Harkness's fellow-workers at his untimely death.

hockey teams will play a game at
the skating rink in tbis city on Wednesday night, February 8th. The

encourage tbe game as niiieh as possible, as it is the premier of winter
sports. The expenses this year having been heavy, the price of admission for gentlemen will be 50 cents,
and for ladies, 25 cents.

In the hockey game at Vernon last
Wednesday, when Rossland defeated

two former Grand Forksites were
prominent factors, A. O. Cochrane as
referee, and Ab McQueen as one of

H. N. Galer, general manager of
the International Coal and Coke
company at Coleman, left that place
Saturday on a business trip to Victoria.
Decides to Dispense Wilh
the Services ofthe West
End Policeman,
Only   Bi-Monthly Meetings
to Be Held Henceforth.
The regular weekly meeting of the
city council was held in thc council
chamber last night, Mayor Hammar
and the full board of aldermen being
present.
A communication was read from
the Provincial secretary, advising the
council that Messrs. Neil McCullum
and Duncan Munro had been appointed police and licensing commissioners for Grand For'.ts. On motion, it was ordered filed.
A communication was received
from the board of school trustees,
asking the consent of the council to
sending two delegates to the teachers' convention, which meets in Vancouver shortly. Mayor Hammar and
Aid. Clements had no desire to ham
per the board, especially as it was
doing good work, but they thought
that one delegate would be sufficient.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Clements, the request .»f the school
trustees was granted, with the recommendation that they curtail the
expenses of the delegates as much as
rjbssible.
The following bills were ordered
paid : Granby Co., S762.50 ; W. K.
C. Manly, S3.40 ; incidentals, 88.25;
W.B.Bower, returning ollicer, $12.50
Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that he had made arrangements with
City Elecrician Waterston to take
over as much of his stock at wholesale price as the committee thought
the city cou'd use for wiring and
lighting. The remainder, consisting
of fancy articles, would be purchased
at retail as needed. The committee
had not sufficiently considered the
question of purchasing an auxiliary
pump as to be able to make a report.
The question of establishing a
scale of prices for electrical work was
also discussed, but it appeared to be
the general concensus of opinion that
the city electrician would be capable
of handling that matter. The mayor
thought thc city should only make a
small profit, and the bill for work
should be attached -to thc monthly
water and light account.
Thc city clerk was instructed to
insert u notice in the local papers to
the effect that hereafter all persons
desiring electrical work done should
make application to thc city clerk.
Thc monthly financial statement
was read, received and ordered filed.
Mayor Hammar reported that the
police commissioners had decided to
dismiss the special policeman in the
West end after tonight. He also
brought in a recommendation that
the chief of police be also made chief
of the fire department, and that the
other policeman assist Electrician
Waterston and Engineer Reid when
not otherwise engaged. He also
stated that the chief of police was
willing to purchase a horse and saddle, provided that the city would
pay for the maintenance of the
former.
Alter a long dfsuiissiun
Inundation nf the polli
sinners wan adopted.
It wus decided to rearrange the!
city offices, mid Mayor Hammar,
Aid. Clements an I Bl'itwil were up-1
pointed a committee tosupcmse'tlic
work. It is proposed lo inovi- the
city clerk's office into the room now
occupied by the police magistrate,
trie latter official being assigned tin
vacant room on the west side of the
buil ling. The council chamber will
remain as it is at present. This
change is deemed necessary in ordui
to give the city clerk more privacy.
The matter of a government grunt
f >r a bridge across the liver at Fourth
street was also given a good deal of
attention.
It was decided to grant a rebate of
$5 to J. Chenier for laying a sidewalk across an alleyway on Second
street, near the Miner house.
Mayor Hammar introduced the
subject of securing on option on a
water right from Mr. W. Bentley]
which could be had until spring foi
S1P0. The creek is located about
three miles up the river, and contain* a volume of about 20 miners'
inches. It waa believed that this
volume would be sufficient to supply
the city for yean to come. The right
could be acquired for 11,000, less
the option paid. By piping the water
to the city, it would do away with
pumping, and thus pay for itself in
a few years. The matter was laid
over till the next meeting.
The Cgurcil Procedure by-law was
reconsidered and finally, passed. It
orovides for bi-monthly council
meetings, and the next session will
be held on the 20th inst.
City Solicitor Miller was granted a
leave of absence for two weeks.
Aid. Cusson was also granted a
leave of absence.
The city clerk was authorized to
purchase a new cash book.
The council then adjourned,
"Your Neighbor's Wife" will bi
presented at thc Grand Forks opera
house on Friday night next, February 10th. The play is a comedy-
drama in three acts by Chas. Ellis,
which provides Master Wilfrid Dunbar, the greatest child actor on the
American stage, as Buster Brown,
with just the sort of speeches that
sounds funny when he delivers them,
but would not if spoken by anyone
else. The repetition of certain aside
remarks, which he interjects paren
thetically and in the most irrelevant
way, as in "Little Lord Fauntleroy"
and other vehicles, contributes much
to the merriment of his scene. Instead of these little squibs a.id quirks
becoming flat and stale, they sound
funnier thc oftcner they are repeated in thc inimitable tones of Master
Dunbar, who is ably assisted by
James T. McGovern as Happy Hooligan. The musical numbers compell
tho owner, Mr. Hugh Ettingcr, to
carry.a band and orchestra of solo
players. Thc free concert given by
these clever musicians on thc above
date, in the afternoon and evening
in front of the opera house, is well
worth coming miles to hear.
Roesland'8 hockeyists defeated the
Revelstoke players by 11 goals to 6
at the latter place Friday night.
Verdict   Reached   at First
Meeting of New Police
Board.    '
Aid. Cusson will leave in a day or
two on an extended Southern trip.
He will visit Salt Eakc City, Tona-
pah, Ncv., and other points.
Blackjack  Is  Also Looked
Upon as an Undesirable
Pastime.
The first meeting ofthe new board
of police commissioners was held in
the city offices yesterday afternoon.
Mayor Hammar and Commissioners
McCallum and Munro were present.
Mr, Hammar stated that, as railroad construction was now about
completed, he thought thu services
of the policeman in the West end
could be dispensed with. He also
stated that the chief was willing
to purchase a horse and saddle, provided the city paid for the maintenance of the former.
Mr. McCallum—Is there any other
work besides police duties that can
be assigned policemen ?
Mr. Hammar—Yes. A policeman
is not a professional man—the stumbling block of the council in cutting
down expenses—and there was agood
deal of work that could be saddled
on to them. Mr. Hammar said be
wou'd like to recommend to the
council that night that the police be
reduced to two men, and that the
chief of police also be made chief of
the fire department.
On motion of Com. Munro and
McCallum, it was decided that Policeman Fritz's services be dispensed
with after that night, and Mr. Ham-
mar's views in regard to the chief
were concurred in.
Mr. Hammar Btatcd he had instructed the police to give "boosters"
and undesirable characters their
walking papers. He didn't believe
in music in saloons, und would instruct the police to prohibit it. As
railroad construction was about over,
he thought that a good deal of the
gambling could also be cut out, and
expressed an objection to blackjack
and musical darkies, and would instruct thc police to have these pastimes stopped. Bridge street, being
the main thoroughfare of the city,
should be kept perfectly quiet and
orderly.
Mr. McCallum stated that when
tho matter of police commissioners
was first mentioned to him, he had
not at first decided to accept thc appointment if he got it, owing to reports being circulated that Mr. Hani-
mar was not going to try to improve matters socially and morally,
but as he was assured bp Mr. Hammar this aftcsnoon that his policy is
to stop blackjack and all the most
flagrant forms of gambling, to close
the music halls and do everything in
his power to make this a highly respectable city, he (the speaker) decided that the members of thc board
would work harmoniously together,
and he felt sure it would be no disgrace to be a member of the boaid of
police commissioners this year.
Mr. McCallum suggested that the
police make a couple of trips to the
West end each day.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet at the call of the clerk.
City Solicitor Miller will leave
next Thursday for Victoria on pro
fessional business. jJljt* iEtemttg £>mt

Passes Resolutions Asking-
Provincial Aid for Kettle
Valley Line.
Also Decides to Petition Railways for Lower Freight
Rates,
A meeting of the Grand Forks
board of trade was held in the city
offices yesterday afternoon. President W. K. C. Manly presided, and
a large number of representative business men wero present.
Mr. Manly, in opening the meeting, stated that the object of the
gathering was to press before the
Provincial government the question
of bonusing the North Fork branch
of the Kettle Valley line.
Mayor Hammar stated that Geo.
Fraser, M.P. P., had intimated to him
that the government was willing to
grant a subsidy for the road 50 miles
up the river, but*fhat tho company
wanted aid for its entire line, and
this appeared to be the stumbling
block. .
The following resolution was drafted by M. C. Hanington, and was
freely discussed by everyone present:
"Resolved, by thi Grand Forks
board of trade, that, whereas, it is of
vital importance to the mining interests of British Columbia that railway transportation be provided on
tho North Fork of the Kettle River ;
and, whereas, the Dominion government has already granted a subsidy
towards the construction of such a
railway; and, whereas, it appears
that the Kettle Valley railway is
pledged to construct such a line, provided that such Dominion subsidy
be supplemented by aid from this
Province; be it therefore '  .
"Resolved, That the Provincial
government be strongly requested *.o
grant a subsidy to the Kettle Valley
line towards the construction of such
a railway up the North Fork of the
Kettle river, actual construction to
be commenced within six months
from the granting of such suhiidy.
'And, be it further resolved, that
copies of this resolution be forwarded
to the honorable the premier, the
honorable the financial minister, and
iji Geo. A. Fraser, the member for
thi- riding."
nr Hammar didn t favor specify particular road. Mr. At-
,might the Kettle Valley line
shoo i lie mentioned. Mr. Manly
didn't iliink it was out of the way to
ask the government to subsidize the
Kettle Valley line, and thought the
resolution should specify that road
Mr. Davis hadn't heard of any other
company that wanted to build a road
up the North Fork.
Thc matter of a time limtt for the
commencement of actual construction wns also freely discussed, and it
was filially decided that six months
after granting of the subsidy should
be the limit.
A vote was then taken on the resolution, ami it was passed without
a dissenting voice.
The matter of pressing our claim
for a government grant for the construction of a bridge across the Kettle river at Fourth street, in this city,
was next brought up, and the subject was generally discussed. Mr.
Hammar said he favored Fourth
street for the location of the bridge,
as the most satisfactory and convenient for the majority of the citizens
on both sides of the river. It was
decided to ask the co-operation of
the city council in this matter, the
board promising to endorse any resolution that body might adopt.
Tho subject of securing the same
freight rates for the Boundary country as those now in force to Kootenay
points was brought to tbe attention
of the board by Jeff Davis. It was
shown tbat the haul from the East
to (irand Forks over the Great Northern was shorter than to Kootenay
points, the grade also being better.
A committee consisting of Messrs.
Atwood, Davis and Hanington, was
appointed to draft resolutions setting
forth claims in this matter and forward them to the Great Northern
and C. P. R. officials.
The question of affiliation with the
associati d boards of trade was also
broached, but no infinite action was
taken.
IF YOU DON'T SLEEP WELL'
It's because your nerves are in a
weak, irritable condition. Ferrozone
will make them strong and correct the
trouble causing your insomnia, "I
fell into a state of nervous exhaustion
last fall," writes Mrs. J. Stroud of
Dexter. "I was run down, couldn't
sleep and perfectly miserable—tried
Ferrozone and was quickly benefitted.
I can recommend Ferrozone to anyone
suffering from overwrought nerves and
sleeplessness." No tonic.is better; try
Ferrozone. Pric<> 50c. H. E. Woodland, druggist.

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

CURES COLDS IN ONE HOUR
Many cold cures are dangerous because composed of deadening opiates.
But fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
cures colds in one Jioiir. and is both
harmless and delightful to use. Even
the worst colds, sneezing, sniveling
colds*; "with running- eyes are stopped
very quickly when the balsamic vapor
of Catarrhozone is inhaled. Catarrhozone acts like a ehuriu .011 colds, kills
them outright, prevents their n-tnrn a
few hours .later. ..For colds, catarrh
and throat trouble use only Catarrhozone. Cohlplete outfit 81.00, trial

I must take this opportunity to
congratulate Mr. Walter, of the
Times. He has constantly supported"
the Government. It has been right,
no matter what it may have clone,
and those who have opposed it have
been denounced as pernicious idiot!
in the columns of his paper. Obvious-
ly he might havo had a title for the
asking, but he has preferred to remain itr. Walter, although other
press proprietors have blossomed into peers, baronets or knights. In this ,
he has earned the respect of all jour,'
nallSts. When newspaper proprietors
are rewarded with titles. for.. having
instructed their' writers to support a
party, the obvious suggestion is that
they have been paid not only for
past services, but for • futuro ones,
for a dog who bites the hand of the
man who feeds him is not in good
odor with his brother dogs, and the
titled newspaper proprietor is bound
in common decency to profess approval of all done by his benefactor.

Ia tbe Nasi 46 Years.-   ,
Star-Admiral 11. T. Grenfell, C. M.
G., who has been appointed to succeed Rear-Admiral It. N. Constance
with the Mediterranean fleet, has
been in the navy for 46 years. As
commander of thc Cockatrice he did
good work during the Egyptian war
of 1882, and he gained the C.M.G.
for his sorviccs in Crete Ave years
ago. The Telegraph rocalls an incident of the time when Grenfell waB
serving mm captain of the battleship
Benbow. The ship's boys were ordered to bath* In Plymouth Sound.
One of them Rot into difficulties, and
Captain Grenfell, aa he then was,
and Commander Wells, his chief executive officer, afterwards head of the
London Are brigade, and now chief
agent of the Conservative party, immediately Jumped In to the rescue.

Many valuable lives would certainly Ik- ttavod mutually if swimming
formed a portion of tho national curriculum for soldiers. During the
bathing season there were several
fatal accidents to soldiers whose
lives would have been saved could
they have swum a few yards. During thc South African war there waa
a case of a retreating detachment
which could not fetch a boat from
thc other side on an ynfordable
stream, although no enemy but the
water offered opposition, A couple
of fair swimmers could have performed the service with ease, and, the river being narrow, the .little command
would have been ferried over before
the pursuing Doers arrived on the
scene,—London Globe.
