Grand Forks, B. t, Tuesday, August 28, 1905

BY-LAWJN DOUBT
Considerable Divergence of
Opinion Regarding** the
Result of the Vote
For the Bridge, 88; Against,
56;  Rejected   Ballots, 6.
The vote of the taxpayers of the
city on the Fourth street bridge loan
by-law was taken at the city hall last
Saturday between the hours of 9 a.
and 7 p.m., City Clerk McCallum acting as returning officer. His report of
the result follows:
Total number of votes cast, 150
for the by-law, .88; against, 56; re
jcctcd ballots, 6. Three of the rejected ballots had the word "yes"
written on them instead of the legal
X, one had two X's in the affirmrtive
column, one the word "no" where the
cross should haye been, and one a
cross in both the affirmative and negative columns.
There is a decided difference of
opinion around tho city as to whether
or not the bylaw legally carried. Up
to yesterday the general impression
was that it had been defeated. Then
the wind suddenly veered, and now
the advocates of tiie bridge claim a
victory by one vote.
The bylaw required thra-lfths of
a majority to carry. Three-fifths over
the 5li negative votes would require
90 votes for the measure to carry.
But others say that all that is
necessary is three-fifths of the total
votes cast, after deducting the rejected ballots. The total vote, aot
counting the rejected ballots, was 144.
Three-fifths of 144 is 86 and a fraction. Thus, by this mode of figuring,
the city government claims a victory
for the by-iaw by one vote and a fraction. Still others claim that the re
jected votes should be included in the
total, and that they should be counted
against the by-law. Here we have a
sweeping defeat for the measure. By
the time everybody gets through" figuring out where the famous by-law
is located, they will probably have it
playing hide and seek with the frog
down a well that fell back two feet
for every foot it jumped up.
A special meeting of the eity council wus held last night to decide the
stalus of the by-law. Only Acting
Mayor Lequime, Aid. Caoper, McDonald and Spraggett showed up, and
no action was taken. In the absence
of the city solicitor, A. C, Sutton had
lieen employed to render a legal opinion. Mr. Sutton ..eciiletl that the
by-law had carried by one vote and a
fraction, and quoted the provincial
statates in support of his claim. The
council meeting next Monday night is
expected to deal with the (jucstion
more fully.
The opponents of bylaw say that
if debentures are issued without the
legality of the by-law being first fully
established, they will be a drug on the
market, and the city will be out the
expense of taking the vote and issuing them.
Very little interest was mat ifested
in the voting. A few of the aldermen
and a couple of other men worked
pretty hard for the by-law, but no one
took the pains to do anything in oppo-
s tion to it.
Fun in a Boarding House
Last Friday morning a populur
young man, holding a position of
trust in one of our city's leading
monetary institutions, left his boarding house, presumably to walk around
Observation mountain and return in
time for six o'olock dinner. On reaching the C. P. R. track west of the
city, he for some unaccountable reason
began counting ties till he had reached the sublime altitude of -1550 feet,
making the ascent by a somewhat circuitous route and having covered a
distance of over 20 miles. After
viewing the highest populated area in
British Columbia and partaking of
solid nourishment, he retired for the
night. Naturally great anxiety was
felt at the boarding house when a vacant chair proclaimed that someone
was missing, and the gathered guests
were wont to exclaim: "Oh, Shaw !
where is he!" Saturday morning's
sun threw no light on the subject, and
two stalwart guests of the house were
sent in search On account of the
missing ftiend's stature and the shallowness of the water in the river his
demise by drowning was conceded as
an impossibility. However, no one
felt at ease till the lost one was reported coming from the Great North-
err train Saturday evening. But, ye
gods, imagine the surpicions of his
friends when it was whispered round
that he was in company with one
named Lawson, of fre i/.icd finance
fame, who operated in this city some
months ago. Upon being questioned
the prodigal one seemed to think that
he had done nothing amiss.
Life around the boarding house
assumed its normal conditien till Sunday morning, when a man older in
years, from the same house, who is
noted for his thrilling adventures and
hairbreadth escapes by land, sea and
air, had the misfortune to dislocate
one of his great phalanges while per
forming hie morning ablution. Once
more confusion reigned supreme and
in the midst of it all an apothecary
advised calling a physician—perchance
he would prescribe an anodyne. But
the suff°rer scornetl medical assistance
and actually replaced the troublesome
member.
It is to be hoped that these people
will be more careful in future, lest
suoh unusual diversions from quiet
city life will react fatally on the un
sophisticated.

Tracklaying on the V., V. & E.
continues to move slowly. Steel has
now been laid over the big Meyers
creek trestle, the fir stringers which
were responsible for the delay having
arrived last week. A water tank has
lieen erected at Minciistcr, the water
being pumped from Meyers creek. A
supply of construction materials will
be kept at this point until such time
us the track reaches Molson, where
considerable sidetrack accommodation
has been provided. There is still
some grading to be completed between
Molson and Oroville, but it is expected that this will be completed within
the next two weeks.

the mineral resources of the Pacific
northwest, have been preserved. Besides these, many camps are sending
in new specimens which will freshen
up their display and show the latest
developments of their mines and the
new discoveries. Geo. William Cornish, of Greenwood, is preparing entire
new exhibits of the big mines of the
Boundary country, which will be ship

tlury in the past has had some of the
best ore ever seen in Spokane.
In about two weeks Manager McAllister, of the Dominion Copper
company, expect? to blow in tbe
first of the three new large blast
furances being installed at the company's Greenwood smelter. The
second furnace has arrived and is being installed, the third furnace being

The Greenwood Smelter
Phoenix, B. C, Aug. 25.—sometime during the first week in September, or approximately within
two weeks' time, J. E. McAllister,
manager of the British Columbia
Copper coinpany, expects to blow in
the first of the three nioinmoth new
furnaces at the company's enlarged
Greenwood smelter, to be followed
by the other two shortly thereafter.
The first furnace is now installed,
the Becond is the ground and being
set up, while the third is now en
route from the makers at Milwaukee. When completed and in run
ning order the smelter will have a
daily cipacity of from 1803 to 2000
to les of ore, and it is expected that
the works will be able to turn out
about $1,500,000 pounds of blister
copper every thirty days. All of
the other work in connection with
the smelter enlargement is being
crowded as fast as possible by a
large force of workmen, and the
company's Mother Lode and other
mines are being prepared for a larg-
ly increased daily ore output, to
keep puce with the requirements at
the reduction works.
Superintendent A. W. B. Hodges
of the Granby Consolidated, visited
the mint's of the coinpany tnis week
after a month's vacation trip. He
states that the work of enlarging the
balance of the battery of eight fur*
n ices at the company's smelter at
Grand Forks is going on steadily,
two of the original small furnaces
having already been treated in this
way, the rest taking their turn till
all are of the large size like Nos. 7
and 8, installed a year ago. On account of the burning down of the
Grand Forks iron works there will
be some delay in securing needed
cistings, thongh fortunately all the
valuable paterns owned by the Granby and other Boundary smelters
were saved. When enlargements
are finaily completed at the Granby
smelter some time in December or
by the first of January, probably,
Mr. Hodges expects to be able to
handle from 90,000 to 100,000 tons
of ore monthly, even when one of
tho eight furnaces happens to be under repairs.
$2Q,000 PAYROLL
Kettle Valley Line Distributed
That Amount Last Saturday
Daily frain Service to Steel-
head When Track Is
Laid
Last Satiurday was payday on the
Kettle Valley line, and 829,000 were
distributed to the workmen. This
amount, added to the regular monthiy
payday at the Granby smelter, makes
about $75,000 regularly disbursed to
laborers in this city every month at
present.
Chief Engineer Warrington, of the
Kettle Valley line, stated last night
that as soon as the steel is laid on the
first sixteen miles, which will in all
likelehood be by the first of the year,
the train now making daily trips between this city and Republic will be
operated regularly to Steelhead, thus
shortening the stage and freight haul
to Franklin.
The gaps in the grade are daily being dosed up, and it is now stated
that the next thirty days will see the
first sixteen miles completed. Track-
laying will probably be started from
the junction with the Canadian Pacific railway, from which piace the
crews can work in either direction.
Work on the Third street bridge will
commence on the 1 st of October.
Too Much Worry
Last week. Ed J. Smith, of Phoenix, started east with Murdock H.
McQuarrie, intending to accompany
him to his old home at Queensville,
Nova Scotia, where his brothers reside. He had been acting queerly
of late, and it was thought best by
his friends that he should be with
his relatives, when he might recover.
On arriving at Nelson, McQuarie,
who had been tractable enough, tried
to commit suicide by jumping into
the lake from the steamer Kosko-
nook, and it took five or six men to
hold him, he being finally taken to
the provincial jail. On Thursday
be was examined by a commission
at Nelson, and committed to the hospital for insane at New Westminster,
whither Mr. Smith accompanied
him. McQurrrie has been a resident of Phoenix for some seven
years. Several years ago he staked
some land in what is now Franklin
camp, and thiB year spent sometime
there, looking after his townsite
property, just below Gloster City.
He brooded over this subject for
some time, and told his tumbles to
all of his friends since he returned
from Franklin. Recently he sold a
lot in Grand Forks to Jeff Davis &
Co. He had been living at the
Brooklin hotel in I'hoenix for some
time, but had been acting queerly,
and it was decided to send bim
east in good care, the above being
the result. When he started he
thought he was going to Westminster, though through tickets were secured to Nova Scotia. A brother of his
was killed in the cage at thc Golden
Crown mine some five or six years
ago. McQuarrie's friends hope tbat
a fter a season at the hospital at
New Westminster, he will fullyj re-
c over his faculties. SJlj? -Etoning &un

TUESDAY, AUGUST 28, 1901!
If, as appears probable at present,
the city council persists in passing the
bridge by-law, we are of the opinion
that the citizens will regret the act before they get through paying for the
bridge. The First street bridge could
be repaired at a small cost, and as
long as we have that the new structure
might appropriately be termed a
luxury. Its construction will entail
another period of rigid economy in
public improvements, the kind of
economy that has put our thoroughfares in the condition tney r.re in today—a disgrace to a country village.
A stranger coming into a city pays
but little heed to the number of its
bridges; but he invariably guages the
prosperity of the community by the
condition of its stieets. During the
discussion on the by-law those
who honestly opposed it on the
ground that they were averse to increasing the indebtedness of the city,
were freely dubbed "knockers." We
wish to state right here that The Sun
fought the measure for the above reason, and it has no apologies to make
to any one. As long as the local papers
have no better sense than to pnblish
the proceedings verbatim, we consider
the Grand Forks city conncil the
biggest "knocker" in the community,
because there is scarcely a meeting at
which the appropriation of triffiing
sums for needed improvements does
not meet with strenuous oppostion on
the plea of poverty. And these wrangles are published broadcast to the
world.
A call has gone out for an urgent
meeting of the Canadian cabinet at
Ottawa next week, and a number of
ministers who were out of town
have been recalled from their vica-
tions. Speculation nssnointesj the
meeting with the present visit of Sir
Mortimer Durand of Quebec, where
he met earl Grey and Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. It is known that the British government and Sii Mortimer
himself are anxious to settle all
questions upon which differences are
likely to arise between Canada and
the United States, ami it is conjectured that the ambassador may
have submitted to the government
and earl Grey a proposition for un
amicable adjustment of outstanding
questions on the lines of the joint
big com mission of 190(1. The report, however cannot be confimed
until Sir Wilfrid Laurier, who is at
present at his country home in
Arthahaskavllle, returns to Ottawa.
Karl Grey, the Governor-General

was reached between it ami the Consolidated Mining it Smelting Co. By
the terms of thc contract entered into last year the entire output of the
LeRoi was to go to Trail for a period
of three years. Since the Consolidated company has secured the Snow-
shoe mine at Phoenix and the Iron
Mask in this camp, and owing to
the discovery of new shoots of high
grade ore in the Centre Star and
War Eagle mines, and a large increase in the quantity of custom ore
from outside mines, there was no
particular call for tho Leroi ore.
Under the circumstances the Consolidated company was willing to cancel the contract. It is provided,
however, that the Le Roi shall furnish about 70,000 tons of ore to the
Trail smelter within the next few
months. It is claimed that there
are such large reserves of ore in the
Le Roi that it will be able to keep
the Northport plant in operation
and at the same time finish the 70,-
000 tons to the Trail within the
stipulated time.

Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction,

was tired—limbs ached all over. Had
no appetite, wus sleepless, nervous ami
