The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chamber last Tuesday evening,
Mayor Hutton, Aid. Cleinents.Cooper,
Guw and McDonald being present.
A communication was read from
Lew Johnson, asking the council to
repair the sidewalk at the corner of
Riverside avenue and Main street. On
motion of Aid. Clements anil Gaw,
the matter was referred to the board
of works with power to aet.
The following accounts were ordered paid:

The chairman of the finance committee reported that he had not yet
appointed a collector of dog and road
taxes.
The mayor reported that the police
commissioners had held a meeting
last Saturday night, and at the solicitation of the residents of the West
ward had appointed an extra policeman
for a few months at a salary of 890
per month, There had also been complaints of inadequate protection from
the down-town 'district. Aid. McDonald questioned the power of tho
commissioners to increase the force
without first consulting the council,
and Aid. Cooper said that the finance
committee should also have been con
suited on the subject. The mayor in-
replied that he had intimated at a
previous meeting that an increase in
the force would probably soon be
necessary. The city solicitor being
appealed to for a decision as te the
legal aspect of the question, that gentleman decided that the commissioners
had the power to appoint policemen
and to fix their salaries, Aid. McDonald insisted that one policeman
was sufficient for the city, and that
the new appointment was a useless
expenditure of money. Where was
the salary for the u**.w officers to come
from? If the people of the West ward
wanted police protection, let the hotel
keepers of that section of the city employ a private watchman. He protested against the action of the commissioners in making the appointment
without first consulting the council,
and characterized it as a high-handed
piece of business. Aid. Gaw said the
people of the West ward had as much
right to police protection as the people
of the East ward. The commissioners
had not had time to consult the wishes
of the council before making the ap
pointment.. It would neither he right
nor safe to dismiss the appointee at
present.   ....
In answer to a request from Aid.
McDonald for a report of the receipts
of the police court, the city clerk
stated that it would be forthcoming
at the next meeting.
The chairman of the board of works
reported in favor of grading Victoria
avenue. Aid. Cooper said the petition for the work had not been signed
by a majority of the property owners
affected. It would cost 8400 or five
8500 to properly improve the street.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that the
water main and power line to the
Grand Forks Steel Construction works
had heen completed. The committee
had not yet had time to draw up an
agreement for power with the Kettle
River Lumber company. Regarding
the extension of the water works sys-
te.ii to Mr. Gallipeau's residence, in
the Van Ness addition, the committee
estimated that the work would cost
from 81300 to 81500, with a revenue
at present of from $10 to $12 per
year. This would hardly pay interest on the investment, otherwise it
wonld he a good scheme, as it would
connect a number of "deadends" in
the system. On motion of Aid. McDonald and Cooper, the matter *vas
referred to the water and light committee with power to act.
Aid. McDonald asked the city solicitor if it would be legal to levy a
frontage tax on vacant land along
water mains. Fhe solicitor thought
not. Vancouver had imposed such a
tax, but had subsequently returned
the same to the ratepayers.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Gaw, the mayor and city clerk were
empowered to sign a contract with
the Canadian Westinghouse company,
whereby the city is to purchase all its
electrical supplies from that firm in
consideration receiving a 5 per cent
discount.
The mayor brought up the
matter in reference to the construction of the Fourth street traffic
bridge, but as the plans and specifications have not yet arrived from Victoria, no action was taken.
The tax levy by-law w,.s reconsidered
and filially passed.
The bicycle by-law was then put
through its final stages iu committee
of the whole, and under a suspension
of the rules it passed its third reading.
The measure imposes a penalty of $5
for riding or driving a bicycle on the
sidewalks within, the city limits.
The city solicitor stated that he
would have the necessary evidence bv
tomorrow to institute suit against the
Columbia brewery for selling beer
without a city license. He was instructed to go ahead with the proceedings, and to take an appeal if a decision is rendered against the city.
Aid. Mcdonald gave notice that at
the next meeting he would introduce
a trade license by-law.
The council then adjourned.

No. 2 Furnaae at the Granby
Smelter Will Be Remodeled
and Enlarged
Mr. and Mrs. Malum have been
visiting at the home of their daughter
in Snndpoint, Idaho, during the past
week.
Maxwell Smith, of Vancouver,
Dominion fruit inspector, was a visitor in the city last Monday and
Tuesday. While here Mr. Smith
made a thorough investigation re*
gurding the prospective fruit crop in
this valley, spending a great deal of
his time at the Covert ranch. Mr.
Smith places the probable yield
the valley at 760 tons of plums and
prunes, 4500 boxes of apples, and
tons of cherries. Fully two-thirds I
of this crop will he produced on the
Covert estate. Besides this asset to
the ranchers, an immense amount of
berries, vegetables, potatoes and
grain is also being raised in the
valley.
Yesterday morning three of the
furnaces at the Granby smelter
which had been closed down for the
holidays were blown in, and this
morning the balance, with the exception of No. 2, were again put in
operation. No. 2 is to be remodeled and enlarged, and will probably
be out of commission for live or six
weeks.
W. C. Putnam, formerly a resident
of Grand Forks, but who has been located in Midway for a year past, has

and Franklin has increased to such
an extent that it.is quite probable
a daily stage will be established in
the near future. In this event, A.
Erskine Smith & Co. will operate
the section from this city to Lynch
creek, and Mr. Snyder will have
charge of the run from Lynch creek
to Franklin.
Mr. W- H. Covert, the pioneer

Gus Parker, of the Granby staff of
electricians, met with a peculiar accident last Tuesday that nearly  cost
Announcement was made at the
Mother Lode mine of the British
Columbia Copper company, last Saturday night that hereafter the time
of surface men at the property would
be nine hours, with the same pay as
heretofore. The Granby company
put the nine hour day into force at
its mines last week, and the Domin
ion Copper company did the same
thing this week, the surface em
ployees of all kinds working nine
hours now instead of ten as heretofore. At the Mother Lode mine the
rule wns to Jwork nine and a half
hours, it now being cut down to nine
hours. Thus all three of the big
operating companies in the Bonn
dary have voluntarily made the
work dny for the surface employee
somewhat shorter, with the same
pay as hereto'ore.
G. C. Hodge, district superintendent of the Hiitish Columbia Telephone
company, and S. S. Irvin, foreman of
construction, were in the Boundary
thu lirst part of the week. Mr. Hodge
has just returned from a prolonged
trip to Japan, and was here to mnke
arrangements for the reconstruction
of the Greenwood system. It is the
intension of his eompany to equip that
system with new cedar poles and new
cables and wires. This has heen made
necessary by the damaging action of
the smelter smoke upon the lines now
in use. The new cables will be proof
against the action of the sulphur, and
the change will improve the service
fifty per cent. The program of
provements has been drawn upon
liberal lines, and while it is not definitely known to what further extent
the work will be prosecuted, it is un<
dm-stood that other highly important
changes will be made which will make
it possible to serve the public [still
better,
Twenty-six miners and two dia
mond drill men are now at work on
the McKinley mine in Franklin camp,
and development work is being carried on at a rapid pace. As soon as
the diamond drill people finishes their
contract on the McKinley, the drills
will be moved to the Banner claim,
where a large amount of boring is to
be done during the present seasor.
A report was circulated on the
streets last night that the White Bear
group of claims, in Gloucester camp,
had been bonded by Mr. Hogue, acting for an English syndicate of capitalists, for So0,000. Enquiry at the
office of the owners of the property
shortly before Th Sun went to press,
elicited the information that the deal
was still pending, and that the papers
in the transaction had not yet been
Bigned. The White Bear group is
owned by U. M. Fripp, H. C. Hanington, H. C. Kerman and others of
this city.
Another large piece of ore was
brought down to the city yesterday
from the Maple Leaf claim, in Franklin camp. The sample is richer than
any heretofore taken from thai property.    The   Maple  Leaf   promises to
become the wonder of a wonderful
camp.

FRIDAV, JULY 8, 1906
The residents of the West ward
pay half ihe taxes of the city, and
if they need police protection they
are entitled to it without having to
go begging for it. In this connection it might be mentioned that very
little, if any, public improvements
have been carried out in that section
of the city this year.
The cabmen in Jerusalem went on
a strike this week. Up to the hour
of going to press it hns not been
learned whether or not the cabmen
in the New Jerusalem intend to
order a syninthotic strike.
The Greenwood Ledge speaks in
'the following flippant manner of one
of the leading supporters of the first
Conservative government British Columbia has ever had and the only Socialist-Conservative administration she
ever will have: "Harry Wright, the
well known and popular minister of
poker in the local legislature, now
registers from Spokane when he drops
his autograph on the hotel register.
Perhaps Harry is growing tired of
cheap-raised Canadians, and sighs to
be a senator with Uncle Sam."
For the Larger Canada
It is not what Canada now is or
what Canada has done, but what Canada may yet do and may yet be
come that gives distincttion and
alertness to Canadian life today, The
interest is that of the unclouded morning of a new day ; the enthusiasm i.s
that of an eager and healthy youth ;
the rejoicing is that of a strong man
to run a race. As yet Canada has to
its credit, for the most part, only a
fair start, a great opportunity! and a
worthy ambition. After four decades of reconstruction and readjustment and steady progress the people
of this half-Continent of the Canadian
Dominion feel, as never in the past,
the thrill and heat of a new national
life. It is the virile and abounding
life of the larger Canada.
The elements in our national life
the factors that make our material
wealth, or for social betterment, or
for moral culture must all be drawn
upon, each to contribute its qaota for
the nation that is to be. The railways and the steamship lilies, the
great manufacturing   industries   and
the   institutions  of   i imerce     nnd
trade, the farmer and the miner nml
the lumberman, the inventor and the
artisan, the teacher nml Ih, philosopher, the poet and the artist, the
scientist and the preaeher nnd the
statesman, all who in any way add to
the wealth or increase the worth of
Canadian citizenship—to them the
call comes from the larger Canada,
Life in a half-continent peopled
from the ends of the earth cannot but
be complex. In its complexity is the
charm and the hope of Canadian life.
Not |i replica of uuy of the old-world
nations, hut a composite out of which
a new type of national character may
emerge, the Canadian type, is the opportunity and the ambition of this
latest born among the nations.
And if that Canadian type is to
survive it must stand, for something
more than mere bigness. The larger
Canada must have a soul as well ns a
body, or its decay will be  certain and
swift. A nation is great not because
its territory is wide and its natural
resources abundant. Its greatness is
in those qualities which cannot he
reckoned in the counting-house or
stored in the granary ; in the greatness of its nature, the magnanimity of
its impulses, the integrity.^**; its honor,
and the worth of its service. In the
day of Canada's recognition among the
nations of the world its rank will he
fixed by the courage with which it
faced its difficulties, by the high purpose with which it made use of its un-
paralalled and unencumbered heritage, and by the worth of its contribution to thc spiritual wealth of the
world. The Canadian type of character will fix the national rank of the
larger Canada.—Toronto Globe.
