Resoluion Regarding Extension of -Waterworks Rescinded
fourth Street Selected as
Site for the Proposed
Traffic Bridge
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the: eity council was held in the
council chamber last night, Mayor
Hutton, Aid. Clen-entj-jMlopjiilr,
Gaw, Lequime, McDonald and
Spraggett being present. Although
the session was drawn out till nearly midnight, but very HtWe business
was transacted. •*"-•
An application from John F. Kennedy for city water for'sprinkling
purposes on hiB property near'the
Canadian Pacific stockyards, outside
the city limits, revived the resolution passed at the lust meeting to the
effect that it was not in the best interests of the city to further extend the
water and light systems outside the
corporation.
The mayor said the sooner that
resolution wag rescinded he better it
would be for the city.
Aid. McDonald spoke in favor of
the resolution. To extend the systems outside the city, would be an
inducement to people to build' oaf-
side the corporation limits in order
to escape city taxation.
Chas. Brown, of 'the Boundary
Iron Works, again urged the.counci
to grant that institution city water
for industrial purposes: He did not
want it for household use, as he
had moved into the city td gpt water
and light. ;     - ...
Aid. McDonald Baid the fact that
Mr. Brown had moved inside the
({ity limits in order to get city water
and light was a strong point in favor
pf the resolution. li'.
. Mr. Brown replied that his firm
simply wanted the . water for the
foundry. The company was prepared to lay its own pipe, and private residents would not be allowed
to make connections with it.
The mayor didn't see how the
city could refuse these two applicants (the Boundary Iron Works
and the Kettle River. Lumber company) water, when an institution
(the Kettle Valley line)' alongside of
them was being supplied with it.
Aid. Gaw spoke in favor of rescinding the resolution.
Aid. Clements said it would be un*
business-like to turn' down Mr.
Brown's proposition, especially, as it
involved no expense to the city.
A motion that Mr. Kennedy be
informed of the resolution passed at
the last meeting was lost.
On motion of Aid. Gaw and Clements, the resolution passed at the
last meeting was rescinded.
A communication from A. S.
Hood, of the public works "department, stated that Engineer F. C.
Gamble was now inv the interior,
and would probably call at Grand
Forks and furnish tbe city with
plans and estimate of cost of ihe
Fourth street bridge, as requested.
A letter from Alexander Robinson, superintendent of schools, acknowledging the receipt of  a  let
ter defining the boundaries of the
territory which it is proposed to annex to the Grand Forks school district.
The following tenders for -lumber
were received: Kettle River Lumber
company—Carload lots, $13; lesB
(ban carload lots, $13.50. Yale-
Columbia Lumber company—Carload kits, $12.50; less than carload
lots, $15. On motion of Aid. Gaw
and Spraggett, the tender of tbe
Kettle River Lumber Company was
accepted.'
* A petition from the Grand Forks
Townsite oompany and others for a
sidewalk on the west side of the
dahool lot, connecting Winnipeg
avenue with Cecil street, and continuing the same on the west side of
-Percy street to Garden avenue,
thence along the north side of Gar-
-den avenue to the west end of that
street, was re 'erred to tbe board of
works. ''*'' ' ' ■■•"','
The city clerk reported that he
had received the school estimates.
The/7*"e'i'e Me'rrtit'to'the'finance
committee. ■■■■ r,-.
Tbe council decided to have tbe
grading done on Victoria avenue
asked for, the city to pay one half
the cost, not to exceed $25.
Aid. Clements reported that the
water and light committee did not
ttecomiriend extending the watei<-
works system to Mr. Carter's residence.    Recommendation adopted.
Aid. Clements gave notice tbat at
the nexf meeting he would introduce a waterworks regulation bylaw.

Aid. CMnontB stated that the
Granby company desired to know
if the city would be willing to meet
them half ways in the matter of
erecting electric lights' between the
city and smelter on the north side
of the North Fork.
The clerk was instructed to correspond with the government in reference to the tacitly promised, but
long delayed, grants io reconp the
city for the construction of the pub
lie school building.
F. C. Gamble, public works engi
neer, submitted plans for bridges at
Fourth and Fifth streets, together
with an estimate of the cost of the
same. To bridge the Kettle river at
Fourth sireet would cost $7599, and
at Fifth $6304. After a long discussion as to the beat means of the city
raising its quota of the cost, tbe
council decided to inform Mr. Gam
ble that it had selected Fourth street
as a site for the structure.
The council then adjourned.

While «4nue of the stocks declined a
few pojnts last .week, most of them
held yefjiifirm,     7 ,i*  ,       . i
Dominion Popper was the most active. This stock, advanced early in
the wee)l, tp 62} and -then sold off a
few points, closing Saturday on the
curb at. New York at 58. Granby is in
good demand, most of the orders being
from the.Bound.ary and western states.
On March 30th this cpmpany declared | a dividend of 3 per cent,
amounting to $400,000: It is expected that this will cause an advance
in all Boundary copper stocks.
International Coal is- holding firm,
with very little of the stock being
offered.
Rambler-Cariboo is in good demand
but brokers find it almost impossible
to bring but any of the stock.
West*i*n Oil is still   very   active,
most of the orders coming from   the
east and Vaucouver.
. Canadian Smelters is holding firm,
selling now at $40 above par.
Eureka Copper is still the favorite
with Nelson investors. Nicola Coal
has again advanced, but even the
higher price brings out but very little
of the stock. Le Roi is in good demand, n**»t of the orders coming from
Trail and Rossland. Denoro Mines
dropped a few points, principally on
account' of the closing down of the
mine pending a certain deal on tho
property to the British Columbia Copper cpmpany.

POWER STATIONS
Work Begun on the VV. K. P.
& L. Co.'s Substation in
This City
Site for the Greenwood Building Has Also Been Secured
Work was started this week on the
West Kootenay Power k Light company's substation in this city. The
building will be located above the
Granby assay office, and will be 52x
56 feet, outside measurement, or exactly the same sizh as the Phoenix
substation. It will consist of three
wings. The centre wing, which is to
be 50 feet high, will be used an a.
transformer room, while the switches
and switch-boards are be placed in the
side wings. The transformers will
step-down the electric cm-rent from
60,000 to 22,000' volts. Athough the
building is to be no larger than the
Phoenix substusion, twice the amount
of electrical energy will be transmitted to this point. The building will
be constructed entirely of brick and
concrete, and it will require three or
four months to complete it.
The power company also purchased
a site for its Greenwood substation
this week. The Greenwood station
will be a duplicate of the Grand Forks
building, and Mr. J. B. Henderson,
of this city, will have charge of tho
construction of both of them.
The high tension pole line has been
completed to Greenwood, with the exception of across one mineral claim,
where some slight difference as to
right of still exists.
Granby Stock
MoNTKEAL,April 2.—Granby stock
has crossed $13- again within the
past few days, and the holders arc
wondering what is causing the move.
Chiefly it is dividend talk, based on
thfe concern's big showing. In February the Granby smelter treated
73,814 tons of ore from its own
own mines, which represented an
output of 1,950,000 pounds of copper, practically the same output hb
in January. On a basis of a 10-cent
per pound profit on this oi t >ui
which the company is now securing,
it must have earned $].).r>,000 for
the month. The Granby coinpany
urn ploy b 775 men, of whom 425 are
employed in the mines and 350 in
the smelter.
Sounds Like a Fish Story
According to a St. Paul dispatch,
tho Pioneer Pros* of tho 3rd inst.
says: *'J. J. Hill is preparing to build
a railroad between Winnipeg and
Vancouver. Five hundred miles of
the new line is already in process of
construction, aud the plans call for a
total of 1800. An exciting rail laying contest soon will start Iwtween the
Great Northern and Canadian Northern and tho Grand Trunk Pacific-
railroads. Several feeders for the
Canadian transcontinental line are
building from poiots in the United
States, one giving an outlet through
Ilibbing, Minn., to Duluth and the
great lakes."

TUESDAY, APRIL 3, 1906
The endorsement of the Kettle Valley line by-law will not cost the city
one cent; but it will give us improved
railway facilities and a modern station near the business centre. It is
merely a question of progress or vegetation.
A vote in favor of the steel
construction works bopus by-law is
a vote in favor of progress and industrial activity. The aid asked for is so
small that it will scarcely be felt by
the ratepayers, and they should place
themselves on record as favoring a
progressive policy by giving it a rousing majority.
Don't forget that the polling place
is in the city hall, on Thursday, April
5th, between the hours of 8 o'clock
a.ni and i o'clock p.m. All property
owners, who are British subjects and
of the full age of 21 years, are entitled
to cast their ballots.
During the past five years the people of Grand Forks have been agitating for a railway and station closer to
the business centre. Now they have
an opportunity of securing both
without a cent's expense to the city;
and if they defeat tho railway by-law
'on Thursday they should forever
thereafter hold their peace.
Tho Grand Forks Steel Construe
tion company will start out with an
initial payroll of about $.'100 per week,
or nearly $1000 per mouth. In five
years from now it may be twenty
times that amount. It is Industries
of this nature that give towns the
■tart whereby they develop into com
iiiercial centres.
Tho construction of the Kettle Val
loy line through the city will distribute large sums of money among tha
citizens, while the only expense i r
trouble tho people are called upon to
bear is the exertion to vote for the
railway by-law. In other words, the
people have nothing to lose and everything to gain by endorsing that measure.
stated that actual construction work
through the city would be commenced
as soon as possible after the passage of
the railway by-law.
Grand Forks is already the railway
centre of the province; but a vote for
the Kettle Valley line by-law on
Thursday will give us a firmer hold on
that distinction.
As it takes three-fifths of al majority
to carry the by-laws, no one who has
a vote should remain away from the
through over-confidence that they will
be endorsed by sweeping majorities,
Many a good cause has been lost in
this manner.
Mr. Hinni8sy may be an infallible
authority on Chicago boodle politics,
but when he speaks on the British
Columbia "situation," it is quite
apparent that he is out of his latitude; that is, if the Phoenix Pioneer
quotes him correctly.
CITY NEWS
P. A. Z. Pare has purchased a 10-
acre tract adjoining his ranch from
P. T. McCallum. He intends to
plant 500 apple trees this spring.
The Phoenix fire department has
been reorganized.
Notwithstanding assertions to the
contrary, the "Rev. J. A. Day,
D.D." did visit Grand Forks last
fall.
The current issue of the British
Columbia Gazette contains notice of
the incorporation of the Phoenix
club, a social organization about to
be started in the camp "where the
mines are" in connection with the
Royal Billiard Parlors and Bowling
Alleys. The names of the first
board of directors or trustees are
Robert H. Karatofsky, Alexander
McDonald, Alvin Taylor, W. Con-
nell and John Mulligan. It is expected that the club will be in working order some time during present
week.
Word comes from Hadley, Prince
of Wales island, Alaska,- that Paul
Johnson, who had charge of tbe
building of the smelter for the British Columbia Copper company at
Greenwood, and of its operation for
several years, has been doing excellent work with tbe smelting works
which he erected for the Alaska
Smelting & Refining company at
Hadley. In a little over two months,
during which the smelter has been
operating, some 23,000 tons of ore
bave been smelted, which produced
1300 tons of matte, worth $225,000.
The smelte* started without 'any
hitches, according to report, and
runs like clockwork.
What Causes Snoring
When asleep people that snore
breathe through the mouth instead of
the nostrils, which are choked with
catarrh. Just use Catarrhozone before retiring and you'll quickly cure
the snoring habit. By destroying the
cause of catarrh and healing the membranes, Catarrhozone makes a complete cure in every case; it cleans the
nostrils, stops the discharge and prevents dropping in the throat in a few
minutes. Nothing so pleasant or certain to cure snoring, catarrh  or colds
Catarrhozone—that's worth remembering.    Sold by all druggists.

In the early morn the l'resh cicy
boarder met the rustic dairy maid
carrying a couple of foaming milk
pails. ''Ah* good morning, my dear,"
he said patronizingly. "How is the
milk-maid?" "Taint made at all,
kind sir," she said. "Wc take it from
the cows."
An enehange in speaking of a deceased citizen, said: "Wc knew him
as bid Ten Per Cent—the more he
made the less he spent—the more he
got the more he lent—he's dead—we
don't know where he went—but if his
soul to heaven was sent—he'll own
the harps and charge 'em rent."

How to Cure Toothache
Any aching tooth can he relieved

fail, because Nerviline kills the pain
outright and prevents it from returning. .Stronger, quicker, more satisfactory than any other liniment, Poison's
