The chairman stated that no provision had been made for the Fourth
street bridge. The report was received.
The chairman of the water anil
light committee reported thot the
tender for digging the trench to the
steel works had been let at 19c per
foot. The transformers for these
works had also arrived and were being
placed in position.
The council asked the police com
niissioners to instruct the chief of
police to enforce the signboard by-law
Aid. Lequime, chairman of the
cemetery comnlitteo, reported that
slow progress was being made on the
fence around the grounds on account
of Contractor Suavely being on the
sick list at present. After the completion of the fence only the hearse
and the mourners' carriages will be
allowed on the grounds at funerals.
A price of $8 per lot for eight lots
in the cemetery was quoted Gateway
Lodge No. 45, I.O.O.F.
The baard of works was authorized
to repair the sidewalk on Riverside
avenue in front of the Alberta hotel,
and as far us Bridge street.
The mayor stated that a member
should be appointed on the board of
trustees of the newly organized band.
It' was the sense of the council that
two members—the mayor and tho
chairman of the finance committee—
should be appointed to serve on that
board.
The appointment of a collector of
road and dog taxes was referred to
the finance committee, with instructions to report at the next meeting.
The mayor stated that ho hud been
requested by the president of the
board of trade to ask the council to
cooperate with that in urging the
government to make a grant for the
extension of the wagon, roud from its
present terminus to the upper Franklin townsite, owned by Messrs. Hutton and Todd. To complete this
stretch over two miles of road will
have to be built, and will probably require a grant of about $5000.
The council asked the police commissioners to instruct the chief of
police to ascertain whether or not the
Columbia brewery is selling beer
without a municipal license. A number of the' alderman were of the
opinion that it would be better even
for Mr. Hartinger if the matter re
garding the rights of breweries in
this respect jt tested in the courts.
The council then adjourned to a
special meeting next Monday night,
when Aid. Cooper will introduce a
tax levy by-law.
A Growing Institution
Frache Bros, have started work
on some extensive additions to their
Columbia greenhouses. At present
they have two lOOrfoot and two 90-
foot houses. To theBe they will add
three new buildings, cohering a total
ground space of 145 by 55 feet, besides erecting an extension to one of
the old houses of 32x35 feet. To
complete this wirk will require
about 11,000 square feet of glass, a
carload of thut material now being
enroute for this city. It will probably take all summer to complete
theBe buildings. When these improvements have been finished this
will be the largest greenhouse establishment in the province. During
the past four years it has grown
from one Binall building to its present large proportions, und the proprietors are entitled to a great deal
ol' credit for their energy' and enter
prise. The products of the greenhouses consist not only of every
concievable variety of flowers, but
of such vegetables as tomatoes, lettuce and cucumbers, which ripen
and are placed in the market in advance ol the imported article from
California. At present there are
about 700 tomato plants under glass.
The product of these plants is ship*
I ed to «JB ,the towns in southern
llritish Columbia, and an ever in
creasing market has made the aforementioned extensive improvements
necessary.
A. I.. Craig, general passenger
agent of the Oregon Railroad k Navigation company, with headquarters at
Portland, Ore., will succeed F. I.
Whitney of St. Paul, pussengor traffic
manager of the Great Northern, on
July l,and Mr. Craig.will be succeeded by William McMurray, assistant
general passenger agent of the O. R.
k N. ut Portland.
The fire boys of the West end will
open their new No. 3 station by giving a free dance on Friday evening,
June 29th. Good music and a good
time is assured. The ladies ore requested to bring baskets filled with
dainties for lunch. Everybody invited.
HILL IN CANADA
i   	
Line From Winnipeg to Coast
Will Be finished as Soon
ae the G. T. P.
Cheapest  Road   to  Market
Is  the  Demand of
the Age
Canadians have passed the stage
in which they could be inveigled into
carrying goods to market by long detours in order to keep on their own
territory or ovoid that of their neighbors, says the Toronto Daily Gluh;,,
The cheapest rood to market
is the demand of the age, and it would
be as foolish to avoid foreigr territory
on the way as it would be to avoid
the ocean. There is no longer any support for the scheme of preventing railway construction across the boundary
At present the Great Northern, or
Hill system, has lines from Seattle,
Wash., north to Vancouver; from
Spokane, to Nelson, Grand Forks and
Midway; from Bonner's Ferry, Idaho,
north to Kuskonook, B. O.j and from
Rexford, Mont., to Fernie, B. C. Under the charter of the V., V. k E.
east and west line over 300 miles long
is being built from Midway via Keremeos ond Princeton to Cloverdale, B,
C, which is a short distance south of
Vancouver. The extensions of the
Great Northern into Canada now under construction are ; from St. John,
N. D., to Brandon, Man,, J75 miles;
from Neohe, N. D„ jjto Portage la
Prairie, Man., 79 miles; und from
Walhalla, N. D., to Morden, Man., 20
miles. Ths Brandon extension is being built under the charter Brandon,
Saskatchewan k Hadson Bay Railway
Company, and ^the Portage la Prairie
and , Morden extensions are being
built by the Midland Railway of Manitoba, which also has a charter for a
line from Winnipeg south to the international line at Emerson. The line
from Boissevain to Brandon is being
built under the name of the Brandon
& Saskatchewan Railway. The 300-
mile mountain section from Cloverdale
or Vancouver, to Midway niny be regarded us the western section of Hill's
Winnipeg-Vuncou ver project. The
eo-itern section will be from Winnipeg
to Fernie, u distance of 850 miles. To
complete the mountain line the two
arms extending to Nelson and Kuskonook can bo connected on the north
by the construction of fourteen miles
of road. The route will then be from
Vancouver via Midway and Grand
Forks to Marcus, Wash., thence nortli
to Nelson und across to Kuskonook;
thence souili to Bonner's Ferry, Idaho; thence over the main line of tho
Great Northern to Rexford, Nont.,
and thence north to Fernie and on to
Winnipeg. The distance by the route
outlined will be 1,575 miles, against
1-182, miles by the present line of the
Canadian Pacific from Winnipeg to
Vancouver.
The Railway Age has made accurate estimates as to grades, curves, and
distances on the proposed line, and
will review the whole project in its
next issue. According to these estimates the roud from Fernie to AViimi-
peg can be built on a four-tenths per
cent grade and with curves not to exceed three degress.    Construction will
not be difficult, and it is estimated
that the roud can be built at a cost
of from $20,000 to *25,000 per mile,
while th* cost, including terminals,
will not exceed $30,000 per mile. The
road now being built through the
mountains constitutes the costliest
part of the transcontinental route, and
when it is completed the most difficult
step towards a through line will have
been Uken. That the main line from
Winnipeg will pass through Portage
la Prairie and Brandon is certain, but
west of the latter point the proposed
route is known only to Mr. Hill and
his lieutenants. Extensive terminals
have been purchased at Winnipeg at
a cost of $30,000,000, and terminals
have also been acquired at Portage lo
Prairie and Brandon. Work on these
branches is well advanced, and they
will be completed by the early full.
Purties are now in the field west of
Winnipeg, and Mr. Hill asserts, according to the Railway Age, that the
line from that city to Vancouver will
be ready for operarion by the time
the Grand Trunk Pacific is completed
to Winnipeg. The mountain section
is by no means a direct route, as it
crosses and recrosses the American
boundary. But nature seems to de
cide routes of travel in such regions
without regard to the imaginary lines
that may be established by political or
ganizutions. It would be almost an
impossible task to lay out a line from
Fernie to Grand Forks, as the moun
tain ranges run north and south across
the boundary. Were such a road
built it could not be operated profitably, as the haul over the summits
would be expensive and wasteful
Every reduction in freight rates brings
many mines within the profitable
class and opens possibilities for new
mining development. Such results
must follow the completion of the projected Hill system. The prairie section will stimulate development in
the territory served, and will give the
West the benefit of competition by a
railway magnate who has made his
American system the most popular on
the continent.
New York men have bonded 20
claims covering 700 acres in the Marshall, the Monte and the Forty group,
partially adjoining Dominion and
Granby holdings at Phoenix, for a
figure said to be about 8225,000. J.

CITY NEWS
Since railway construction started
numerous cases of men being filled
with ^whiskey and then "rolled" for
their "pile" have been brought to
the attention of The Sun. It is
cheering news to learn that the
police is endeavoring to free the eity
of the perpertrators of these outrages.

A number of complaints have ra
cently been made to the owners
vacant business blocks and residences leaving the doors unlocked—in a
number of cases they nre wide open.
Some of those buildings are filled
with inflammable materia], and the
ease with which vagrants and evildoers can gain admittance make
them a constant source of danger
from fire. An instant of this kind
occurred last week. Had the fire in
the Union hotel started a few hours
later in the evening the whole block-
might have been swept away" It
has been pointed out that even if
the owners of vacant premises do
not care whether their properties are
destroyed or not, the people occupying adjoining houses are entitled to
some consideration.
Green May Have to Go.
VrcromA, June 16.—For some
time past, particularly on his recent
tour, premier JMcBride has been
urged by members of his party to
drop the chief commissioner from
the government on the ground that
he was a source of weakness. Now
it is said a hint hns come from a
source which the premier cannot
disregard, it wis reported that one
of the first steps of the new 'lieutenant governor was to intimate that
the government was not a clean one
and that he could not accept Green
as one of his ministers. His alleged
reason was the undue knowledge
which the Anderson^ male and female, had of mattert in the lands
and works department, whioh oon-
stituled a scandal.
The government request for investigation by a snpromo court judge
of charges in connection with the
1'endray property is believed to be
due to the desire of the premier to
rehabilitate his minister with whom
he will pnrt only if retention means
loss of power.
The Pendray case will be a difli-
cult one to establish by witnesses
and hence the premier hopes to be
able to fight it successfully, and by
a favorable decision from the judge
to prove the di parlincnt clean.
Dunsmuir, however is very obstinate, and it he bus decided that
Qreen must go he will insist on his
wish being obeyed.
