A Warm Debate on the Question of Workshop for the
Electrician
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chamber last Tuesday evening,
Acting Mayor Lequime, Aid. Gaw,
Clements, MoDonald and Spraggett
being present.
On motion of Aid, Spraggett and
McDonald, the bill for the keeping of
city piisoncrs in the Nelson jail was
referred back to the attorney-general.
The oity solicitor expressed doubt as
to whether the city was liable for the
keeping of prisoners sent to the jail
prior to the time the new municipal
Clauses Act became operative.
The following accounts were ordered paid:
E T Bank 84,105.57
UoyalBank   1,723.62

J 8 Smith         4.00

J Shanger        15.00
J Hammer        30.15
Arthur McDonald        12.00
Aid. McDonald protested against
the bill of Joe Snavely of $36 for
burying a city charge, stating that it
was too high, but it was finally passed along with the balance of the ac
counts. The bill of A. C. Sutton for
acting as counsel for the crown in the
burglar case of Rex vs. Canty, was,
on the recommendation of the city
solicitor, referred back to the attorney
general. The solicitor stated that the
attorney-general had no power to appoint Mr. Sutton as counsel.
G. M. Fripp addressed the council,
and asked that body to cooperate
with the citizens and business men to
properly entertain the members of the
Spokane chamber of commerce on
their visit to the city next Wednesday. Mr. Fripp stated that Phoenix
had raised 6150 for this purpose, and
he thought Grand Forks should raise
a like amount. The business men
would hold a meeting tomorrow and
decide what to do. It would require
at least .$150, and if the council contributed half he thought the balance
could be raised among the business
men. The merchants felt that some
thing should be done, as all the surrounding towns were making preparations to entertain the visitors. Aid.
Clements favored meeting the business men half ways, but this .proposition was opposed by Aid. McDonald.
On motion of Aid. Spraggett and
Clements, the couneil donated $75,
with the understanding that a like
amount was to be raised among the
business men. Aid, McDonald alone
voted in the negative.
John McKie, of the Boundary Iron
Works, appeared  before the council,
and asked if the city would offer any
inducements if the works were rebuilt inside the city limits. On being
requested to make a definite statement
of the concessions his company expected to receive, he stated that they
would be satisfied with free power
during the life of the city's contract
with the Granby company, exemption
from taxation for two years, and free
water for two years. If they decided
to rebuild inside the city limits they
would probably locate near the steel
works. The aldermen considered the
request quite reasonable, but thought
the foundry people should bear the
expense of submitting a by law on the
subject to the ratepayers. Mr. McKie did not think his company would
be willing to do this, as the exponse
would be as much as the concessions
were worth. On motion of Aid,
Spraggett and McDonald, the water
and light committee was empowered
to make an agreement with the foundry company.
J. C. McDonald, of the Grand
Forks Steel Construction company,
stated that the works were now in
operation, and he asked the council
fer a settlement. On motion of Aid.
Clements and Spraggett, the finance
committee was authorized to make
such settlement.
The chairman of the water and
light committee stated that the only
thing he had to report was the matter
of a workshop for the city electrician.
Mr. Waterston had closed his own
shop. Aid. McDonald said the back
eud ,of the city stable would do for a
workshop if repaired. If Mr Waterston had closed his shop for his own
use, the c luncil had a perfect right to
request him to remove the building
from the city property. Aid. Spraggett didn't think it was right to make
the electrician tarnish his own shop.
Aid. McDonald rejoined by saying he
was getting tired of the Waterston
question. It appeared to him as if he
were trying to force the city to buy
his building. He hud obtained an increase in salary at the beginning of
the year, and should be satisfied.
Aid. Clements si.id it was not justice
to make the electrician furnish his
own shop. He moved that Mr.
Waterston be allowed ("5 per month
rent for the building. Aid. McDonald replied that he didn't like the way
the matter was brought up during the
absence of Aid. Cooper. He didn't
think it was open and above board.
Aid. Clements asked Mr. -McDonald
to explain his statement. Aid. McDonald explained that the question of
rent had been turned down at the
same time the motion to purchase was
defeated, ami, besides, it was not fair
to bring up the question when Aid.
Cooper was not present. If the cily
paid ID per month rent it had a right to
charge 85 per month ground rent.
Aid. Spraggett then seconded Aid.
Clement's motion to 85 rent, and it
was carried.
Aid. McDonald moved that the
eity charge \Vaterst4)ii 85 per month
for ground rent, hut the motion was
not seconded.
On motion, Aid. Gaw was instructed to act as chairman of the water
and light committee during the absence of Aid. Clements.
The chairman of the board of works
reported that the sidewalk te L. A.
Manly's new residence would cost
829.50; the one around the Yale
hotel, 40.05, and the crosswalk at
Woodland's drug store, $39. The improvements at the Yale and at the

CITY NEWS
Mr. C. S. Baker, provincial assayer, yesterday started operations
at bis ae*ii»y office on Riverside
avenue near the Yale hotel. Mr.
Bilker's office is fitted up with the
latest and most approved machinery
and appliances, ns well as the most
accurate balances, and prospectors
and mining companies who value
reliable returns can do no better
than to patronize him. The building which he located has been entirely remodeled, and consists of
four rooms—office, laboratory,
sampling and weighing rooms. All
are well equipped. In the weighing
room the balances rest on a pillar
embedded in the ground, thus rendering them free from the vibrations of the building nud ensuring
absolute accuracy. An assay office
has long been needed in this city,
and Mr. Baker's establishment will
prove a boon to the prospectors and
mining men generally of the district.
An unsuccessful attempt was
made last Tuesday night to rob' the
safe in the Keltle Valley depot. As
the robbers tried to open the safe
with an axe, it is conjectured that
they were either boys or amateurs at
the safe-blowing business. The
same night a lone highwayman
broke into the residence of G. W.
Collins, who lives in the Ruckle ad-
dilion, near the planing mill. Air.
Collins was at work in the smelter
at the time, Mrs. Collins and the
children being alone in the house.
Airs. Collins was rudely awakened
from her slumbers by a sharp noise.
On lighting a match she discovered
a man standing iu tne middle of the
room, and at his feet lay an axe,
the dropping of which had evidently
aroused her. Failing to find any
money, and becoming alarmed at the
woman's screams, the intruder
finally made a hasty exit. He has
not yet been apprehended. Airs.
Collins feels certain that she could
identify him.
Bowman   Lumber  Company
Absorb Yale-Columbia
Interests
American Capitalists Eager to
Secure British Columbia
f imber Limits
The announcement was made last
Wednesday that the Bowman Lumber company, composed of Minneapolis capitalists, had secured a controlling interest in the Yale-Columbia Lumber company. While no
change of name will be made, the
purchasers will in future control and
operate all the mills of the Yale-
Columbia company, incluning the
plant at Cascade. The deal had been
talked of for some time. It is of
particular importance as showing
the way American capitalists are
reaching after British Columbia
mills and limits at the present time.
Evidently they realize a good thing
when they see it. Only the other
day the deal for the Arrowhead
lumber mill and limits was recorded,
in which an American syndicate was
credited with purchasing the property at a figure estimated at close on
to three-quarters of a million dollars.
Now comes this second deal, and although no figures are given out for
publication, it ib safe to say that an
excellent price was paid for the controlling interest acquired. As announced the other day, the head
office of the Yale-Columbia company will be maintained in Nelson,
the company having mills in daily
operation there, and at Cascade and
Robson, with a combined daily capacity of over 135,000 feet. Lumber
yards are also maintained at Green
wood, Phoenix and Nakusp, as well
as in conjunction with **the three
mills already mentioned. The Bowman Lumber company operatss two
plants, one at Revelstoke with a
daily capacity of from 40,000 to
45,000 feet and a fine mill at Com.i-
plix with a daily capacity of 100,000
feet. By this last deal the Bowman
Lumber company have just about
doubled their output.'

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER   7,   1906
The city council is endeavoring to
|iurcbase a team for the purpose of
doing tho scavenger work. To an
outsider it would appear as if a couple of nightmares would be the most
suitable animals. Those should not
cost $400.
A number of ladies who have had
their Parisian gowns ruined by the
nails that persist in bobbing up in the
sidewalks all over the city, have urged
The Sun to appeal to the chivalrous
disposed, as well as all other men of
the community who ean hit the nail
on the head, to organize a nail driving
bee.
THE CITY COUNCIL
Concluded from First Page,
drug store were authorized, but the
council discovered that the street to
Mr. Alanly's residence had not been
opened, and nothing was done in that
matter.
The health and relief co.i.raittee reported that another eity patient hail
been brought to the hospital.
The special committee appointed to
look into the advisability of purchasing a city team, reported that Chas.
McAllister had a team for sale at
§400. The acting mayor said it was
a good team, but tliere was a rumor
in circulation that one of the horses
were balky. On motion of Aid.
Clements and the acting mayor tbey
were authorized to purchase the team
for S4U0, provided they found it satisfactory. They were ulso instructed
to secure a harness and wagon.
The clerk wasThstructed to call for
tenders for a driver for the city team.
Aid. Cooper here entered the couneil chamber. He strongly objected to
paying 8400 for McAllister's horses.
The were at least ten years of age,
and were not worth that amount. If
the eity wanted to buy an old team,
why not buy a cheap one? The team
i|uestion was disposed of by the couneil instructing the committal to make
further inquiries before making the
purchase.
The health and relief committee
was instructed to make the necessary
arrangement to get the scavenger
work done until the eity team was secured.
The city solicitor stated that under
the new .School Aet the eity hail power to levy a 4 mills tax on all property in the sehool district outside the
eity limits, anil on motion of Aid.

havo the streets sprinkled on the day
of Air. Simpson's funeral, and when

You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business   de
mands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—ia 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.
THE QUESTION IB—
If an editor would print nil of tbe
news, just as it ie, for a single issue
of his rag of freedom he would have
a list of libel suits on bis hands that
would keep him busy for a period
of some seven years and four months.
If tbe ministers of tbe Gospel dared
for a single Sabbath to preach nothing but the true and unvarnished
religion of the Good Book, instead
of having to pat their congregations
on the back by "cutting out" anj-
thing that might "hit" someone,
said ministers would be handed their
walking papers with such velocity
as to make a sound akin to that of
the city council when bent on passing something or other. I' the man
behind the bar neglected to mix
fifty per cent rain water with his
Old Rye, how could he ever pay a
high license; and when would
some men taste real water? Tbe
milkman comes in under this head.
If the city council bad the opportunity to pass all the debenture bylaws it would like, how large an addition to the poor house would have
to be built? If the majority of girls in
this and foreign climes bad the fame
remakable talent for getting up an
edable meal that they have for de-
orating the south Bide of their face,
how long would it take an otherwise
worthy young man to quit cigarette* 1
If the pipe hadn't gone out—
It Imparts strength
Just think of the enormous strengthening power Ferrozone possesses—
consider what it did for H V Fottel,
well known in Kingston. "I was
subject to spells of dizziness. Fer
eight months I had intense pain in
my right side between the shoulders.
I was almost incurab'e with weakness
and lack of vigor. Often I scarcely
ate any breakfest and felt miserable
all day. Nervous, easily excited,
troubled with heart weakness, I was
in bad shape. Ferrozone restored and
n mrished me back to health in short
order." Whatever your weakness may
be Ferrozone will cure. Price 50c
per box at all dealers.
