Trades License By-Law Removes Restrictions From
Peddlers
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the eity council was held in the council chamber last night, Mayor Hutton,
Aid. Clements', Gaw, Lequime and
McDonald being present.
A communication from City Electrician Waterston, offering to sell to
the eity his building located on city
property at the corner of Main and
First streets, was read. After consiiT-
'erable discussion, the matter was laid
over until the next meeting.
The police magistrate's monthly report was read. It showed a revenue
of $19") for the month of June.
A tender of $600 was received
from the Danville Lumber company
for the boiler, generator, etc., at the
city power house. On motion of Aid.
Clements, the offer was accepted.
A petition was read from a number
of Market street property owners, asking the couneil to make connections
in a couple of "dead ends" in the
wrterworks system. Aid. Clements
* said the work should be done, but it
was a question whether the finances
would allow it being carried out.
Aid. Clements reported that the
estimated cost of the proposed exten
sion of the waterworks system to th
McNee addition was 81,0711.90. He
had not felt like taking the respon-'
sibility of inaugurating this work
without referring it back to the coun
oil. Although the revenue to be derived from this extension was small,
the main consideration was to give the
West end a better water service. Aid
Lequi.i.e said the outlay seemed large
for the amount of revenue to be derived. He was in favor of the exten-
ison, however. The petition was laid
over.
The question of the construction of
the Fourth street traffic bridge was
discussed at length, and it was finally
decided to bring in a debenture by-law
on the subject.
Aid. Clements stated that the
amount of water used for lawn sprinkling was beginning to become a serious
question*. The city engineer bad been
called nut of his bed in the middle of
the night three times during the past
week to fill the tank. On iiiotion.the
sprinkling hours were fixed from (I to
I) a. in. and from 5 to 8 p. in. and no
nozzles larger than 11-loth of an inch
will 'be allowed under penalty of a
fine.
Aid. McDonald reported that the
work of repairing the sidewalks was
about completed. A sidewalk should
be built on Sixth street, from Winnipeg avenne to the English church.
On motion of Aid. Gaw and Clements, the board of works was instructed to ha e the oti in the rear of
the Club saloon and the Victoria
hotel drained.
The bicycle by-law was reconsidered
and finally passed. It carries a penalty of $5 for riding on sidewalks
within the city limits with it.
only thing left to a poor man now,
provided he does not own an automobile, U to attach his wheel to Mr.
Thompson's Cascade airship when he
wishes to travel in a hurry.
Aid. McDonald's trades license bylaw was read a first and second time,
after which it was considered and
passed in committee, and then, under
a suspension of the rules, it passed its
third residing,    The main features of

Death of William Lane
A telegram was received in this
city last Saturday stating that Wm.
Lane, who, in company with his son,
C. C. Lane, was visiting his old home
in Dexter, Maine, had died suddenly
in that city of heart failure. Mr.
Lane had been a resident of this city
even since the erection of the Granby
smelter, having be»n in charge of the
dam and big flume of that institution
from the time it first started operations up to the time of his death. Deceased was about seventy-two years of
age.iind leaves a wife and son to mourn
his death. He was one of the most
genial and good-natured men in the
city, and profound sympathy is expressed by all his friends and acquaintances" for the bereaved family. He
was a general favorite wilh everybody who knew him for his sterling
q mlities, and his death removes a
f.iiuiliar and pleasant gentleman from
our midst. Mr. Lane was a veteran
of the Civil war, having served in the
Union army all through that struggle.
The remains will lie interred at his
native town—Dexter, Maine.
Without City License
Floral Exhibit
An aster show and floral exhibit
is to he given at the Spokane Interstate fair by the Spokane Floral association, beginning September 24.
This is the first time anything of
this kind has been attempted at the
Spokane fairs, but will add a great
deal of interest, especially to lovers
and growers of flowers. It is believed there will be a large number of
entries for the various'prizes. These
vary in value up to $'20. This exhibit will be in the new Home Industry building where a special and
desirable location will be assigned
for it. The prizes are chiefly lor
asters, but special premiums me, offered to the boys and girls lor exhibits of nasturtiums, sweet peas,
pansies, sunflowers, poppies and
marigolds. Uuless otherwise specified, all flowers competing must
have been raised by the exhibitor.
There is no entrance fee and exhib-
ors bringing exhibits will be admitted free until noon on Monday, September 24. The competition is open
to all.
The band boys received their instruments for the new band yesterday and celebrated the event in the
evening by having a musical blowout in their practice room in the
old Union House building. The
enthusiastic spirit with which the
boys entered into their preriiier
practice clearly shows which way
the wind (musical) blows and how
bent they are upon emulating
Sousa's great and only. It did not
take them long to get onto the curves
of a difficult Indian intermezzo like
"Silver Heals," a dreamy Straus
waltz, or a characteristicque rag-time
melody of the "What You Going to
Do When the Rent Comes Round?"
style. Leader Thomas says the
squad is a promising and leather-
lunged one and that the greatest difficulty probably will be in procuring
music of a sufficient kink, to keep
the boys interested. The band will
consist of about 17 pieces, which i
more than the average for a city ihe
size of Grand Forks. Regular practice twice a week will soon remove
any foreign feeling among the members, and after individual peculiarities have been ascertaind by the
leader he will be better able to
handle his proteges, it is the intention of the city to have regular
band concerts as soon as the boys
get more under the control of their
leader, which will undoubedly be
generally appreciated inasmuch as
it was through the instigation of the
city council that the necessary outlay of about 8(150 for a fust class instrumental equipment was initially
made. Grand Forks is unusually
well gifted along musical lines, and
that we baie the material for a baud
to be proud of there is not the remotest doubt.

TUESDAY,   JULY 17, 1906
The intention of the city council to
repeal the peddlers' clause of the
trades license by-law has raised a
storm of indignation from the mer
chants of the city generally. The
annulment of tho clause will bring
them in direct competition with
venders who pay no revenue to the
city. They arg-.e, and apparently
with good reason, that tlio people who
support the city by paying taxes and
licence fees, should be shown some
consideration.
Wheat cutting in Manitoba is expected to begin within thirty days,
and the record harvest of the Can.
adiaii West will give another stimulus
to the progress of the country. With
a crop of over one hundred million
bushels, and with the prospect of four
transcontinental railways within a
eoinpartiyely brief period, the Dominion is making headway. What a
pity it is when the future seems so
bright that the federal Government
should have parted with 1 early all the
prairio country to political favorites
and big corporations, who hold it at
fancy prices and so retard settlement,
