Issued Twice a Week
City" Council Decides to Grant K.V.L. Franchise
Work on Road Will Commence on or About April 1st, and
Continued Until Franklin Camp, Fifty Miles North
of This City, Is Reached
$4000 Station in Heart of City—Contract for Steel and
Rolling Stock Has Been Let—Fourth Street Selected
for Site of New Wagon Bridge
-• • .%-■.. ■■io -.-...
One of the most important sessions of tbe council ever held in the
city, was called,, to ordered at 8
o'clock last night by Mayor Hutton,
to decide upoti the ■toeation of a
wagon bridge across the Kettle river
and to coniiider. thaj^uest of the
Kettle Valley line for ilttnchise to
use Third street, from the river to
Observation mountain, ai a right-of-
way for the North Fork extension of
the road. The room wu crowded
with interested ratepayers, and
nearly everybody expressed their
views on the important questions
under consideration. All the members of the council were present
The mayor, in calling the council
to order, stated that it was an adjourned meeting for the purpose of
further considering the bridge question.
The clerk read a letter from F. C.
Gamble, stating that the provincial
government had no objections to a late the speed of trains inside the
combination, railway, and wagon eity limits, and could also reserve the
bridge, provided the cost was not right to make the company put in
when
to double track in front of the station on Third street, between Bridge
street and Winnipeg avenue, the
necessary switches to not be nearer
than 20 feet from the north side of
Bridge street and the south side of
Winnipeg avenue. Also the right
to lay a spur on Third street from
the end of the company's bridge to
a point even with the south side of
Main street.
Mr. Warrington, chief enginodr of
the Kettle Valley line, exhibited a
map of the survey through the city
to the council. He explained that
the road would cross both the Great
Northern,and Canadian Pacific near
Lequime's sawmill by passing under
these, roads. One of tbe advantages
of granting the request would be,
that the street grade in the lower
portion of the city could be raised
at one-fourth the ordinary cost. The
council would have the right to regu-
increased th-ereby, and plans and
drawings were first submitted to
the department., ,,"'*
. On motion of Aid. Clements and
Spraggett, the: council, by a unani
mous vote, depided not to consider
the matter'of constructing acorn
bination bridge.
The question of granting the Kettle Valley line a franchise to use
Third street for right of way, was
then taken up. ,
Mr. Whiteside, acting on behalf of
the  company, tated that  the following running rights were required
by the Kettle Valley Railway company:  The right to  cross  Kettle
river and land on the south end of
Third street; thence following Third
street, crossing the alleyway between
Main street  and the river; thence
crossing Main street ai the present
grade; thence crossing Bridge street
at grade; thence crossing the alleyway between Bridge street and Spo*
kiuic  avenue;  thence crossing the
alleyway between Spokane avenue
■and  Winnipeg avenue  at   grade;
thence crossing the two alleywayB
between Winnipeg avenue and Victoria avenue; thence crossing Fourth
street at  grade  nnd the alleyway
north of Victoria  avenue, between
Victoria  avenue and   Observation
mountain; thence crossing the alleyways in Blocks 1, 26 and 26A; then
crossing Alexander avenue  and alleyway   between  Fifth  Btreet and
Sixth  street;  then  crossing Sixth
street  north of Alexander avenue;
then entering Block 32A; thence to
the north boundary line of the city.
Also the right to cross any  and  all
streets and alley ways in Columbia
which lie north of the Canadian Pacific railway tracks.   Also the right
•safety gates at street crossings
deemed necessary.
Mr. Whiteside said that Mr. Warrington had explained the plans
very fully, and he had nothing to
add. The people had been praying
and waiting for a station in the cen-
tie of the city for a number of years,
he said, and now that their desires
were about to be realized they
should welcome it, instead of oppos
ing it.
Aid. Cooper wanted to know
when and where the company intended to start construction work.
Mr. Warrington replied that work
would be commenced on or before
the 1st of April, and carried on until
the first fifty miles are completed
The company had no time to lose if
it desired to earn the Dominion subsidy. The cost of the survey was
about 8125 per mile, which he did
not think the company would go to
the expense of making it if they did
not inetui business. The contract
for the steel and rolling stock for
the road had already been let.
F. M. Kerby opposed the granting of the franchise. The question
waB the most important that had
come before the city for years, and
it shouldn't be rushed through the
couneil. A depot in the centre of
the city was desirable, but every
street and alleyway crossing would
be made a death-trap. The Kettle
Valley line had been given a bonus
to build a station in the Ruckle addition,ami he thought that was close
enough to the business centre. The
council should see if the proposed
route couldn't be improved upon.
The granting of the franchise would
spoil one of the best residential districts in the city.   If Third street
proved to be the best place  for
station, the other roads would want
to come down town.
A letter from J. L. Martin, of
Phoenix, protesting against the
granting of the franchise, was  read.
Jos. L. Manly said if the people
wanted a station in the business cen
tre, the road would necessarily cross
the streets and alleyways, as they
couldn't expect the company to
build an aerial line. The people
had been praying for a down-town
station for the past three years, and
now no stone should be left unturned
to get One on Third street. Mr.
Kerby's argument against the franchise that, if granted, it might bring
the other two stations down town,
he considered a strong point in favor
of granting the right of way. If
they decided to moye down town,
he favored giving thein the whole
city.
P. T. McCallum asked if it wasn't
possible to get the road into town
without it crossing all the streets
and alleys. He thought it would be
better if the station was not located
in the heart of the city.
Robert Harvey held up both hands
in favor of tbe franchise being
granted.
David Whiteside said Mr. Manly
had expressed his views. Any abuse
of the city's rights could be renie
died by the council. Some of the
speakers had dwelt on tbe dangers
that trains running the city would
bring. All Grand Forks needed to
to awaken it was a little more danger.
Other speakers had referred to the
fight Spokane is having with the
railways. But Spokane was welcoming the Canadian Pacific railway
with outstretched hands. And the
people didn't ask it to enter the
city by a back door, either.
Robert Petrie was satisfied. He
wanted to see the road build. t
Chas. Brown had no objectionsi
He owned property on Third street
and wanted to see the depot in the
city.
H. C. Kerman had intended to
speak on the subject, but the applause for the franchise made him
change his mind.
H. A. Sheads was an old timer,
and had howled for railways ever
since he came here. The Great
Northern and Canadian Pacific had
their stations out of town. If they
they wanted to move down town,
give them the best we've got. Anybody that wasn't drunk could see a
locomotive.
Mr. Whiteside said all the com
pany asked for at present was a resolution by the council that the request would be granted.
Aid. McDonald Baid if the franchise wus granted the company
should be compelled to build to
Franklin camp. Winnipeg nntl
Vancouver bad their stations in the
business centres. Every precaution
should be taken to safeguard the
city's interests. Thc sooner we got a
railway in the down-town district
the better it would be for the city.
Aid. Cooper supposed the company would build a station that
would be a credit to the city.
Mr. Warrington replied that he
had recommended a two-story building to cost about (1000. It would
contain two waiting rooms, a baggage I
room, ticket office, and offices for the
officials ot the road on the second
floor.
City Solicitor Miller suggested that
the council appoint a committee to cooperate with the city solicitur and the
railway officials in arriving at a basis
of agreement for the franchise. Iu
answer to a question, he said that the
road could not cross any street without the consent of the council.
Aid. McDouald—All that is necessary for us to do at this meeting is to
instructthesolicitor to bring in a bylaw, and ire can pass it—the same as
we passed the |iquor license by-law.
[Tfiaugbter.]
Moved by Aid. Spraggett, seconded by ...'Aid! JIcDpnald, that in the
opinion-<&■this council the request of
the1 'Kettle -Valley line Bhould be
granted, -providing that the oity's interests are properly safeguarded, and
that the city solicitor be instructed to
prepare; and present at the next meeting <AXb>t> council the necessaf y documents to safeguard the interests of
the city.
The e unanimous passage of this
resolution brought forth considerable
applause from the spectators.
On motion of Aid. Clements, the
mayor appointed Aid. Clements, Lequime and Gaw as a committee to cooperate with the city solicitor and
railroad officials.
The matter of selecting a site for
the new wagon bridge was then taken
up.
Chas. Brown was of the opinion
tjiat the bridge was still wanted on
Fourth street, and that it shouldn't
come below that point under any consideration. It could be built there at
less cost than at any other place. If
that site was selected, a number of the
ranchers would be willing to donate
the work of their teams for a week or
longer in constructing the approaches.
Mr. MoDougald thought it would
be a waste of money to put the bridge
on Third street, as the trains would
frighten teams and school children.
He was strongly in favor of Fourth
street.
Mr. McKie hat! attended the meeting of the residents of the Ruckle addition, which had unanimously favored Fourth street. There were 30
or 40 pupils attending school from the
Vther side tho river, and a bridge at
Fourth street would save them a
quarter of a mile's walk each day, besides obviating the necessity of their
crossing and re-crossing the railway
tracks. Third street was a poor location for a wagon bridge, as tho trains
would frighten teams.
Mr. Allen said the previous speakers hutl covered the question. The
people of the Ruckle addition had
tiveled through mud long enough getting to the First street bridge. A bridge
on Fourth street would save shoe
leather and cuss words. It would also
save the school children from the danger of getting on tho railway bridge
and tracks.
Aid. Gaw had always favored Third
street, but since tho railway had decided to cross at this point, ho could
see no other place than Fourth strroet,
although the approach on this side tho
river at this place would be more expensive than at Third street.
Aid. McDonald said Fourth street
was the proper place for the bridge.
Aid. Cooper thought   the council
should^ engage an engineer to make a
survey and give an estimate of the
cost of the approach to the bridge.
Aid. McDonald saitl that if the government tleeided t<i pay half the cost
of the bridge, they would furnish
plans and estimates.
On motion of Aid. Clements antl
Spraggett, the council decided that
the new wagon bridge across the Kettle river should be located at Fourth
street.
The mayor announced tbe following standing committees:
Finance —Cooper, Lequime, Gaw.
Water and Light—Clements, Gaw,
McDonald.
Board of Works—McDonald, Lequime, Spraggett.
Health and Relief—Spraggett.Gaw,
Cooper.
Cemetery — Lequime, Clements,
Spraggett.
It was the sense of the council that
people guilty of damaging sidewalks
by crossing them wioh heavy loads
should be prosecuted.
The matter of the council appointing a gravediggor was referred to the
cemetery committee.
Tho council then adjourned.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Norman McLellan returned last
Saturday from a three weeks trip to
Edmonton, Alta. He says he purchased a big business block in that
city, and will shortly remove to that
place.
Wm. Spier, manager of the Eastern
Townships bank, left last week for
Winnipeg on official business. It is
reported that Mr. Spier expects to be
transferred to some point in Eastern
Canada shortly.
People who have occasion to visit
the Great Northern station daily have
begun to wonder whether it would be
cheaper to build a sidewalk from Government avenue to the depot or to
move the building to the sidewalk.
It is reported that there are a few
people in this vicinity who are rushing the season by feasting on fresh
trout. It is liable to prove an expensive dish.
W. H. Ude, of Spokane, traveling
passenger agent of the Northern Pacific railway, is a visitor in the city
today,
A story, with a prologue and epilogue, concerning a chicken and
champagne luncheon, is hoing told
with much gusto in hotel lobbies in
the eity. It contains enough intrigue
and mystery to furnish material for
the most fascinating drama ever
staged. 	
Mrs. John Morrell and four children arrived in tho city last weok
from Italy, having spent twenty-one
days on the journey.
Tracklaying on the Vancouver,Vic-
toria it Eastern railway between Midway and Oroville, thence to tho international boundary and continuing

with a view of pushing it forward at
thc rate of a mile a day. Grading
work on the line between Keremeos to
Princeton, and thence to Vancouver
will begin early next summer and it is
to be vigorously prosecuted. I

TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 27, 1908
The action of the city council in
granting the request of the Kettle
Line line is generally commended by
the citizens, as everybody realize the
fact that the benefits derived from a
centJiilly located station far outweight
any damage thut the road may do to
our streets.
There is some dissatisfaction among
the down-town residents at the selection by the city council of Fourth
street as the site for the new wagon
bridge across Kettle river. But in
view of the opinions expressed by citizens and ratepayers at the meeting, it
is difficult to see how that body could
have actetl otherwise. And we
believe that lime will demostrate the
wisdom of the choioe.
LAY ON MAC!   HIT HARD!
From out Victoria's glittering pile
Methinks I hear a shout,
"Courage Macdonald I Hit hard!   .
Tho secrets will be out."
The committee'*- searching light
Throughout our land shall shine;
Mathews and Larsen shall not go
home
With pockets so well lined.
Are there traitors in our midst,
Who seek thc truth to hide
'Neath senselefls, vain display
And rhetorical pride;
Who fain would  make our country
how
To "Graft's" nccursed yoke—
By following its iniquities,
Its curse to invoke.
Rise, llritish Columbia, in thy might;
Shake n|T the serpent's coil,
Or it will with insidious wiles
Thy hearths and homes despoil;
For if thou trifle with it now,
Or dare to own its sway,
Thy sun shall set in darkest night,
Thy chances pass awny.
It shall not be. The land we lovo
Must hold her honor fast,
Anil hoist the traitors to their fate,
And let them face the blast.
Up   British   Columbia, in   honor's
name
Go forward to the fight;
You bave right and justice on  your
side,
-Strong to defend your right.
Let "No surrender" be your cry,
Nor flag of truce be shown,
And "Graft's" and "Boodle's" dead-
, ly power
.  Shall soon be overthrown.

north wind which sweeps over plains
covered with marshes and becomes
overcharged with moisture. The effects produced in the human body are
In general lassitude and relaxation.
The pores of the skin are opened, Inducing great liability to colds, sore
throat and all consequences of check
of perspiration. The damp wind of
La Plata seems to affect the temper
and disposition of tbe Inhabitants. The
Irritability and Ul humor it excites in
them amount to little less than a temporary derangement of their faculties.
It Is a common thing for men among
the better classes to shut themselves
np in their houses during Its continuation and lay aside all business till It
hat passed, while among tbe lower
classes It ll always remarked tbat
cases of quarreling and bloodshed are
mors frequent during the north winds
than at any other time. Even murderers are said to lay to It the blame
of their fonl deeds. No sooner, bow-
ever, does the southwest wind, blowing from the dry and snowy summits
ot the Andes, set In than health and
comfort and peace are restored.
•jjTherc are very few business bouses tixlay which do
not use some form of Loose Leaf System in one or mure
departments, as it is leganledas an absolute necessity
by progressive business firms.
IfThe advantages of the Loose Leaf System are now
well known, aud permit uf adaptability to meet to best
advantage changing conditions. It permits the greatest
