local Steel Magnates Interview Council in Reference
to a Site
Tbe meeting of the city council
last night drew another large crowd
of spectators, including three or four
ladies. No business of any real im
portance, however, was transacted.
Presentr-Mayor Hutton, Aid. Clements, Cooper, Gaw, Lequime, McDonald and Spraggett
A communication'was read from
. Alexander Robinson, superintend-
ent of education, asking (or a detailed memorandum regarding the
boundaries of the. territory whioh
the school trustees propose to annex
to the Grand Forks district. The
city clerk was instructed to furnish
the requested information.   >
A communication waa read-,from
Hon. R. F. Green, chief commissioner of lands and works, confirming the telegram received from F. C.
Gamble last week respecting a com
I bination railway and wagon bridge
.  on Third street.
A communication from the chief
and secretary of the fire department,
'"•' making a request for 1000 feet of
new hose,, was referred to the water
and light committee.
A petition from J. M. Simpson et
nl. for a crosswalk across Main street

Aid. Clement reported that he had
had several conferences with J. C.
anil A. J. MacDonald,who proposed to
establish a steel plant in this city, in
reference to power und light. As the
works would lie of permanent benefit to the city, the proprietors thought
the city should give them a small
bonus toward buying u site.
David Whiteside appeared on behalf of the new linn. He stated that
a situ for the shops would cost uhotit
.$3000, nntl tlte company asked a
bonus of $1000 towards securing it,
ulso free power to January 1st. next.
They wanted a locution neur u railway, and if assured that the Kettle
Valley line would be built, the corner
of Bridge and Third streets would
suit them. The plant, exclusive of site,
would cost about $7000. Enough
work had already been contracted for
to keep ten men employed at the outset. As this was a new industry in
the interior of British Columbia, and
wus withal one thut permitted of vnst
expansion, he asked for a fuvoruble
consideration of the proposition.
The request was viewed with favor
by the aldermen, all of them expressing the opinion that new industries
should be encouraged to as great an
extent as lay in the power of the city.
Aid. Lequime went so fur as to doubt
if the new enterprise hod asked for
■enough assistance.
The mayor asked how large a site
would he required. Mr. MacDonald
replied that 100 square feet, or three
lots, would be sufficient.
After a conference with the aldermen, the mayor asked if a smaller
cash bonus und mote power would be
satisfactory, and Mr. MacDonald replied that it was a reasonable proposition.  .
On motion, the mayor appointed
Aid. Cooper, Spraggett and Guw us u
committee to confer with Mr. MacDonald in reference to the selection of
a site.
Aid. Clements reported that the
special committee appointed to confer
with the Kettle Valley line ollieials
had met twice, and had drafted an
agreement.
The route is the same as published
last week. The salient points in the
agreement are: The grade of the road
to be the street grade; the tracks
within the city limits to be kept iu a
clean and orderly condition; fifty
miles of rood up the North Fork to be
completed within two years; sufety
gates to erected at street crossings
when city attains a population of 10,-
000; station on Third street to cost not
less than $3000; railway coinpany
to bear expense of publishing und sub
mitting by-law to people; by-law, if
approved, to become operative March
30th; street car lines to be allowed to
cross tracks on any street.
Aid. Clements stated that the railway people desired a speciul meeting
of the council, in . order that the bylaw might be rush through us soon us
possible.
On motion of Aid. Spraggett, the
report of the committee was accepted.
On moiion of Aid. Clements, the
assessment roll was made returnable
April 15th.
Aid. Lequime gave notice thut at u
special meeting to be heltl Wednesday
evening he would introduce a railway
by-luw.
The city clerk stated that the mayor
had instructed him to notify all
standing committees to meet und elect
their own chairmen.
The mayor stated thut under the
new procedure by-lay this course
would lie necessury.
Aid. Clements said thut some excitement hud heen caused last week
by a man—having a document signed
hy the mayor and bearing the corporation seal —making the rounds of the
city chocking up the water und lights
in resiliences ami business houses.
As cliuirmiin of the Water and light
committee, ho felt slighted ut the action taken by the mayor, und having
run across the man, he had taken
away his document. He felt certain
thnt ho was chairman of tho committee until his successor wus appointed.
The mayor would explain his side
of the case, 'He didn't think
there should be any acrimonious discussion, ns the council hod a great
deal of important business to do. He
believed thut all orders should emanate from the chuirmen of committees.
The mayor replied by saying that
during the past two or three yenrs
there hud been a leakage in the electric
department between tho revenue and
tho amount paid out for power. He
hail his opinion where it was. He had
appointed Hnnshow in the people's interests and in order to get a double
check on the lights. It had been reported that 'he had crawled through
the window to get the seal, but there
were one or two persons in the office
when he used it. He was prepared to
prove he had a right to useit, and defied anybody to show the contrary
The trouble with City Electrician
Waterston was, that he believed all
people were as honest as himself. He
would submit Hanshow's report as
soon as completed.
Some rather sharp words were here
exchanged between P. T. McCallum
and the mayor, Mr. McCallum taking
exceptions to the appointment of a
foreigner.
The mayor maintained Aid. Clements] hud done an injustice to him,
to the people and to justice. The
council would hnve to Bhow him if he
was wrong. He hoped to have Hanshow's report ready at the next meeting.
Aid. Clements replied there was no
use of prolonging the discussion. He
would give tho mayor credit for his
good intentions, and he hoped Mr.
Hutton would do the same to him.
Aid. McDonald followed with a
long talk, in which he made the
unitizing assertion thut it wus the duty
of the aldermen to support the mayor
even if they knew he was in the wrong.
The council then adjourned till
Wednesday evening.
A. G. Creeliiian has the contract for
the masonry ahd carpenter work.
When completed the works will have
a daily capacity of 1500 tons.
In tbe estimates, brought down in
the provincial house last week there
is a $4000 conditional grant for a
wagon bridge across the Kettle river
at Fourth street in this city.

A Successtul Horseman
Never allows his horse to suffer
pain. He always uses Nerviline,which
is noted for curing stiffness, rheumatism, swellings and strains. Nerviline
is just as good inside as outside. For
crumps, colic, and internal pain it's a
perfect marvel. In the good racing
stables Nerviline is nlwuys used—because it inukes better horses nnd
smaller veterinary'bills. Twenty-live
cents buys a large bottle of Nerviline;
try it.   Sold by all dealers.

A. D. McPhee, superintendent of
the McKinley mine, has returned
from a trip to the Similkameen
country, where he inspected somo
mining properties.
* Work wus resumed this week on
the addition to thc Windsor hotel.
Our Vancouver correspondent in
this issue of The Sun outlines a very
feasible plan for the establishment
of a strictly British Columbia university—that is, if there is any pub-
lic lund left nfter the legislature gets
through with its generosity' toward-
theCanadian Paciflo railway,
The water and light committee of
the city council held a meeting in
city ball Friday evening, but failed
to agree on the choice of a chairman.
R. A. Brown will make application .for ah hotel license at Volcanic
City.
The Sun is informed on good au*
thority that R. A. Brown, of Volcanic fame, is the author of the new
British Columbia Log Scaling Act
now pending in the legislature.
Work was started last week on the
excavation for the enlargement of
the British Columbia Copper company's smelter at Greenwood by W.
P. Tiemey, the  Nelson   contractor.
According to a • New York dispatch, F. Augustus Heinze is reported to have lost from $2,000,000 to
$6,000,000 in the storm thut swept
over Wall Street yesterday. Mr.
Heinze would have more money and
less experience if he confined his
operations exclusively to Franklin
camp.
A force of about twenty men is
now employed on development work
under the direction of Foreman
Rogers at the Pathfinder mine, sixteen miles north of this city. It is
probable (hat this number will be
increased to fifty men tbis summer.
Last Thursday night VV. A. Nich
olson picked into a missed hole at
ibe Providence mine, Greenwood,
and received almost ihe full charge
in his ifsee. He was taken to the
Sisters'hospital at. Greenwood and
looked after by Dr. Spankie, who
found that the unfortunate man had
lost both eyes, and that his arms,
legs and chest were filled with small
particles of rock.
The Kettle Valley line Burvey
party is now camped fourteen miles
up the North Fork.
John Stanton, widely known as
the father of the copper industry,
died in New York, February 23rd,
aged 76 years. He was a director
in the Granby company, and president of the Mohawk, Winona, Baltic,
Wolverine and Michigan Mining
companies, as well as director in the
Atlantic, Copper Range, Michigan
Smelting and American Coat companies. He had been interested in
copper mining for about fifty years.
Some two years ago he visited thc
Granby smelter in this city and the
company's mines at Phoenix.

On motion of Fraser, the second
reading of the bill extending the
rights of the West Kootenay Power
& Light company, and permitting
them to transmit nnd dispose of
power in Ynle district, passed the
house last Saturday. Mr. Frnser
pointed out that the object of the
bill was to enable the company to
extend their lines and supply power
in the Boundary country. He quoted
a great mass of figures to prove thc
nature and extent of the mining and
smelting industries now under way
in the Boundary, basing thereon an
argument in favor of allowing the
West Kootenay Power & Light company every facility to supply power
for cheap and permanent operation
of these great and growing industries. He dealt with the Cascade
company's opposition to the bill,
and pointed out ihnt that company
could at best,only supply 3000
horsepower, and frequently could
not supply more than 1600. He
was not seeking to advocate the
cause of one company in preference
to that of another, but simply to secure for his constituency an adequate power supply. He believed
if the present bill became law every
mining operator in the Boundary
district would be assured a cheap,
plentiful supply of power for years
t*> crime. Speaking particularly of
the operations of the Granby com
pany, Fraser said that anything that
tends to curtail its operations must
necessarily have a bad effect on the
general prosperity of the whole district. Lack of sufficient power
would necessitate the partial closing
down of the smelter, and such an
event would be disastrous not only
to the company, but in an equal degree to all wprkingmen finding employment in and about Grand Forks.
Merchants would also suffer. In
closing Mr. Fraser said: "Our very
future depends upon successfully
treating low-grade ores in which this
portion of the country abounds.
Cheap power must be the basis upon
which we shall build broad and
strong the foundations of our future
prosperity. On no account must
we restrict the generation of electrical power. For such a course would
spell ruin to our various mining interests, and woultl only result in
damage to lite community tit largo."

To the. Editor of The Sun.
At the meeting nf university men,
held in Vancouver in tbe board of
trade rooms, under thc presidency of
Judge Henderson, thc -question of
taking steps to establish a university
in British Columbia was considered!
As one who attended the ' meeting
with a porfectly open mind, without
any bias in favor of nny university
whatever, I was very much struck
with the fairness of tho remarks
made by somo of thc advocates of a
strictly provincial university, and in
some measure regretted the action
at the meeting of those gentlemen
advocating McGill.
The sole object of the meeting
was to ventilate the question as to
whether! a British Columbia university should be founded or not.
Mr. Wade und others who had opposed McGill frankly accepted the
position created by bill Ntj..,23 having already passed the legislature.
The ultimate object-of the.** meeting
was to secure from the legislature a
grant of land to be used for the
benefit of future generations. There
are, at the present time, 334.000
square miles of land in British Columbia belonging to the crown available for this or any other purpose.
These lands belong to the people
and could be all located by the people's representatives for the benefit
and use of the children of the people of British Columbia. At the
present time some of this laud is
almoBt valueless, but as railways
will from time to time be opened up
throughout the province, lands now
almost absolutely valueless will then
become valuable.
It appears to me that it would be

After the next provincial election
Mr. Fraser, M.P.P., will be plain
Mr. Fraser. But that .is poor consolation to men who were endeavoring
to secure tbeir rights. Indignation
at the action of our memberand the
government is at a high tension in
this vicinity,
Hawthornthwaite, in champion
ing tho bill handing over some eight
hundred thousand acres of land in
Yale district to thc Canadian Pacific
Railway company,-declared that he
did not cure if every acre of land in
the province were given to corporations; in fact, this course would be
the best, as' it would arouse the
workingmen to a true sense of their
duty. These are the words of a
fanatic or mad man—if there is any
distinction in the meaning of the
two words, nnd not of a sane man
who hns been elected to office to
guard the people's interests.
The Phoenix Pioneer was the lirst
Conservative paper in the province
that had the temerity to defend the
government's action in tho Ka!on
island land deal. A few otllir papers
are now beginning to gather courage. But their so-called arguments
in favor of thc deal consist mainly
of excuses, and are so lame that they
have to be propped up with liberal
allotments of goverment advertising
matter in order to keep them from
fulling to pieces.
Obviously Thc Sun holds n decided advantage over its rival, as it
is not compelled to limit the time
during which it has been spreading
thc truth concerning the resources of
this district to one year. This is one
of the fruits of a newspaper having
a fixed management.
As the Cranbrook Herald and our
esteemed contemporary nre floundering in the same pond, tho fact that
tion more dererving of the favorable
consideration of the legislature than
the one now under consideration.
The higher education of the children of this province means increasing the wealth-producing capacity
and well-being of the future population.
Tbe advocates of McGill have
gained their point, and I for one
welcome McGill or any -university
which may help to improve the
educational facilities of British Columbia.
Under section 8 of bill No. 23 the
school trustees, appointed by the
taxpayers of the city of Vancouver,
may contract with the authorities of
McGill and pay to them monies collected from the taxpayers of Vancouver city. This is not right and
before nny really serious engagement is entered into the trustees
should go to their constituents and
nsk for their instructions in the matter. They are not elected for such
purposes.
It wns stated that at thc present
time Vancouver is paying for the
higher education of people from all
parts of the province, and also for
citizens of thc United States. This
is a fact which cannot be altogether
regretted, because if young men
come and locate in Vancouyer,
whether they be citizens of America
or from the interior of British Columbia, they are more likely to become citizens of Vancouver when
they are educated here, and as such
it is hetjor that they be well
eqiiipped. Those who remain in
the aggregate will certainly return
any benefits they may get in educational -advantages with interest to
the city.
At the present time the province
contributes only one-fifth and the
city of Vancouver four-fiflhs of the
cost of education, but I do not think
it would be good policy to endorse

SCHEME FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY
Concluded from Second Page.
Mr. Wade's suggestion and debar
young people from coming into the
city and being educated at the institutions provided by the city.
There was another fact brought out
very plainly by the principal of the
Columbia college, and which should
have weight with those interested in
educational matters. He pointed
out that it was not altogether an advantage to he affiliated with eastern
colleges, and he would welcome the
establishment of a British Columbian university. A number of men
of sufficient intelligence and wisdom
could be selected to run the university as an examining board. He said
it. would be better that the curriculum should be prepared by men in
British Columbia, and pointed out
the disadvantages that students in
British Columbia had to undergo
when the examinations were set by
professors three thousand miles
away. Students studying under
those professors had the advantage
of being acquainted with their pet
theories, and were evidently in a
better position than those in British
Columbia.
Now, sir, coming down so the
practical side of the question. It is
possible for the legislature to revive
the British Columbia University Act
and to grant power to the lieutenant-
governor in council to endow a Brit'
ish Columbia unfversity with a grant
of land. There are 334,000 square
msles of land at thu disposol of the
people of this province, and we cannot do better than set apart, at once,
one quarter of a million acres, or
about 390 square miles. A repre
sentative committee should select
this land from time to time in districts where new railways and min'
ing operations are opening up
There would then be sufficient
revenue derived from such lands to
curry on a strictly provincial university, and without a single cent
being taken from, the ratepayers.
There are many tnen standing
very high in the universities of Great
Britain who owe their education to
the wisdom of King Edward VI.
(who has been dead over 350 years),
ih setting apart land then belonging
to tho crown for the endowment of
public grammar schools*
If the people ot this province give
tbis matter due attention a university for British Columbia is  easily
obtainable.   Let us act at once.
