Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, February 20, 1906
Issued Twice a Week
School Trustees Authorized
to Annex Contiguous
Territory
Is It to Be a Combination Railway and Wagon Bridge
at Third Street
The city council met in the council chamber last night, Mayor Hutton, Aid. Clements,* Cooper, Gaw,
Lequime, McDonald and Spraggett
being present
A communication fro*n D. Wood-
head asked that tbe couneil pass a
resolution establishingia 'nine-hour'
day, instead of ted h'oure, on street
work. * On motion, the request was
complied with, the wages to remain
the same as at present—30 cents per
hour.
A communication from the Canadian Municipal Journal, soliciting
subscriptions, was laid on the table.
Health Officer Kingston submitted bis annual report, which was
read. Tbe past year had been strik
ingly free from infectious diseases.
Owing to tbe difficulty of obtaining
proper drainage, the sanitary condition of some sections of the city was
not as good as it sHouId be. In
view of the fact that there was more
or less typhoid fever in the
city every summer, he recommend
ed an analyzes of the drinking
water. On motion of Aid. Clemen's
and Cooper, the report was received
and the recommendation was referred to the health and relief committee.
A communication from the school
trustees stated that they were de
sirous of annexing surrounding territory to the Grand Forks school
district, but the superintendent of
education bad informed them tint
before this step was taken it would
be necessary for the council to pass
a resolution authorizing the annexation and defining the boundaries.
Trustee I. A. l3insmore explained
that the question of annexing contiguous territory to .the Grand Forks
dstrict had faced the trustees for
some time. Children were senl
to the school from the surrounding country, and this outside
territory should contribute its ratio
towards the maintenance of tbt.'
school. The board strongly recommended that the council puss the
. resolution in question, as the trustees were endeavoring to make
Grand Forks an educational centre,
and they bad already met with con
siderahle success in this direction.
Trustee Ilaiiiiigtiin slated that
the new School Act bad superseded
the old actj causing sonic loss of
revenue to the district. Instead of
a per capita grant, the new Act provided (or a total of $565 per teacher.
The new Act gave the Council power
to annex outlying territory. The
council should pass the resolution,
stating definitely the .boundaries of
the annexed territory. He suggested thnt the district be bounded on
the west by Fourth of July rreek,\Oii
the north by the upper ond of Smelter lake, on the east by the east line
of Gilpin's ranch, and on the south
by the international boundary.
Mr. Hanington also stated that
Grand Forks would he unable to
send a representative to the school
trustees' convention, but that the
Nelson delegote had been named as
a proxy for this district.
| On motion of Aid. Spraggett and
Cooper, the recommendation of the
trustees was adopted, and that the
desired resolution be. passed by the
council and forwarded fo Victoria.
On motion, the Federal Labor
union was donated a burial plot in
the cemetery,in consideration of that
organization purchasing another
for 135.
■ Aid. McDonald moved that the
position of city electrician be reopened, and that tenders from applicants be called for. The motion
was lost, Aid. McDonald and Cooper
being the only members voting in
the affirmative. During the discussion on this resolution some decidedly acrimonious language was indulged in by three of the aldermen
Aid, McDonald didn't see why tht
salary should have been raised to
$12*; per month, when three or four
competent electricians willing to do
the work for $105 could be found.
The electrician's work could be done
in five hours per^ay. He had voted
against the raise in salary, and hatl
the courage of his convictions—a
man who hadn't was not fit to sit in
the council. Aid. Gaw thought Alt
McDonald was taking undue
interest in a foreigner. Aid. Mc
Donald replied that he was a Canadian, but he considered the foreigner as good as he was. Aid. Clements
didn't what was the matter with-Jthe
council this year. It seemed to him
the members acted like a lot ol'
school boys, they changed their
minds so often. The present elec
trician was worth $125. If Aid. McDonald considered 8125 too much,
let him bring in irresolution cutting
salaries all around.
Mayor Hutton informed the aldermen that Government Agent Almond had received n communication from Victoria requesting the
council to select a site for the new
bridge as soon as possible. Recently, he said, events had transpired
whereby a combination railway and
wagon bridge could be constructed
at a saving of $1000 to -the city.
Chief Engineer Warrington, ofthe
Kettle Valley, stated that his coin-
puny hud decided to ctosb the river
at Third street, and if the city decided on thc same location, a cousid-
rable saving to thc city could undoubtedly he made. From a railway
Standpoint, however, be woultl
rather see the city bridge constructed
at some other point. He considered
the present site a good one for a
wagon bridge, antl this would probably be thc cheapest, as thc approach ut this end is already built.
On the south side no higher ground
can be obtained at Third street than
at First. He questioned whether it
would cost the city leBS to build a
combination bridge at Thrid street
than to construct a separate structure at First street, where the false
work is already in. The railway
company would approach the bridge
on the south side by a trestle, and if
the city were to do the same, it
would entail quite an expense. The
bridge would consist of two 125-foot
spans. The company intended to
erect its freight sheds whore the old
steam laundry is now located, and
the passenger depot where tbe skating rink now stands. The grade of
.the road from the river to Observation mountain would be the same as
the street grade. Mr. Warrington
intimated that all the company intended to ask the city, for was a
franchise, to use Third street. He
stated that he would have the plans
and profile of the line through the
city completed by Thursday, and
would thereafter be ready to meet
the coancil and discuss further details.
F. M. Keray, P.L.S., stated that
he had received instructions to make
surveys at Second, Third and Fourth
streets for a city bridge.   .
The city clerk was instructed to
write to the coast authorities and
ascertain if a combination bridge
would be satisfactory to the government.
On motion of Aid. Clements und
Cooper, the council decided to pay
nil accounts at the first meeting in
each month.
Aid. Cooper suggested having time
sheets printed showing where and
how much street work was being
done. Referred to finance committee.
Aid. McDonald contended that
the lender system for street work
of any considerable amount would
prove the most economical.
On motion of Aid. Gaw, the question of having the Columbia street
bridge repaired was referred to the
board of works, with power to act.

Hon. Wm. Templeman, tho new
minister of inland revenue, was given
a magnificent - reception in Victoria
Monday night on his return from Ottawa, A. O. U. W. hall being crowded with a very enthusiastic gathering
of Liberals, as well as a large contingent of prominent Conservatives.
Eulogistic speeches of the new
minister were given by Ralph Smith,
M.P., W. Sloan, M.P., and J. A.
Macdonald, leader of the provincial
Liberals. Hon. Mr. Templeman made
a happy response. In the course of
his speech he said that Sir Wilfrid
Laurier gave him the assurance at the
time of his acceptance of the portfolio
of inland revenue that a separate department of mines would be established just as soon as the' necessary
legislation could be secured. It
would be his (Templeman's) duty at
the coining session of parliament to
introduce a measure creating a department of mines, over which he
would preside and which in all probability would be permanently presided
over by a British Columbia representative. .* ,
Mr. Templeman expressed the opinion that a department of mines could
render very valuable service to the
mining industry, and it will be his
aim to make it thoroughly efficient.
He believed such a department could
prove as useful to mining industry as
the department of agriculture hud
proved to tho farmers.
Conservatives are not likely to oppose Templeman's return, but W. H.
il aeon is in the field as an independent
socialist.

The argument urged against
the amendment to the West
Kootenay Power it Light company's
franchise, empowering the said company to operate more extensively in
the county of Yale, advanced by
some ofthe coast papers, viz., that
the advent of thc West Kootenay
company into the Boundary district
will render the half-million-dollar
investment of the Cascade Water,
Power & Light company valueless,
is silly in thc extreme, and exhibits
a lamentable ignorance on the part
of the journals using it of the condition of affairs in reference to the
power question in this section. Anyone at all familiar with this subject,
knows that the Cascade company is
unable lo supply till Ihe power
needed in this district at present;
and before.next fall, with new minis
being opened up, new sniclie.g
erected and enlargement of the present ones, tliere will be a ready demand for ill I Ihe electrical energy
that both the West Kootenay and
Cascade plants ean generate. And
it is an open question if they will he
able (o supply the demand. Last
winter, when the Kettle river was
low, the ('rniihy smelter had to partially close down on account of lack
of power, and the citizens of Grand
Forks were compelled to grope their
way in darkness for thc same reason. This slate of affair would be sure
to occur at frequent intervals in ,1 Le
future should the West Kootenay
company be kept out of the district,
The Boundary needs all the power
it ean get to develop its mines uud
operate ils smelters. A narrow-
gu.ige policy on the part ofthe cousl
politicians in this respect would give
the mining industry a serious setback.
Sir James Watson's Opinion
Ho says that the commonest of all
disorders, and ono from which few
espape is Catarrh. .Sir James firmly
believes in local treatment, which is
hest supplied by Catarrhozone. No
ease of catarrh can exist where Catarrhozone is used; it is a miracle
worker, relieves almost instantly and
cures after other remedies fail. Other
treatments cau't reach the diseased
parts like Catarrhozone, because it
goes to the source of the trouble along
with the air you breathe. Cutiirrho-
zone is free from cocaine, it jeaves no
bad after-effects, it is simply* nature's
own cure.- Accept no suhst tute for
Catarrhozone, which alone can eure
catarrh.    Sold by all druggists.

"Some smokers prefer t> cigar tbat it

manufacturer, "and ib showing this
preference I think tbey make a mistake. A cigar that Is too dry will, of
course, cause a little annoyance from
dust, but a cigar that is as damp at
many smokers prefer it will not bave
as good an aroma as the other and will
not burn so well. A medium cigar, in
respect to these conditions, Is best, but
between a damp and a dry cigar I
would always take the dry one and
thus secure  the  better smoke."

contract consumption by allowing
power of resistance to fall so low that
a favorable condition for the development of the baccilli is provided. In a
healthy system consumption can't take
root. But where there is weakness

building up the weak, nothing equals
Ferrozone. It makes the blood nutritious and the nerves enduring. The
way it converts food into nutriment,
the appetite it gives is surprising.
Just what the man verging on consumption needs—that's Ferrozone. If
