Be Submitted to tlm
People
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chamber last night, Mayor Hammar
and all the aldermen being .present.
A communication was.read from the
seciretary-treasurer of the fire department, requestiug, on behalf of the
firemen, that the council exempt the
members of the volunteer department
from payn-ent of road. tax. .The request waa granted, .•■■:■
A letter was read from Henry
White, of Spokane, offering lots 1,
2, 3, 4 .and 5, in block 8, for cemetery purposes for $500. Action was
deferred until Mr. White's arrival in
the city. '■■■*   ' '"•'"'■
A communication from M_. S,; Martin stated that he had thoroughly examined the First street bridge and
had found the same to be in an unsafe
condition. He recommended the
closing of the same to general traffic
'I'he mayor said that in order to put
the bridge in a safe condition, it would
be necessary to rebuild the entire
structure, with the exception of the
piers. The city solicitor stated that
if the bridge was unsafe, in order to
relieve the city of responsibility, it
should be closed and the government
apprised of the fact. The council deferred action until the next meeting,
instructing the city solicitor fo notify
the provincial government in the
meantime that the bridge is in a bad
condition.
The   following  accounts   were or-
«        dered paid:

Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
t.iat all the fire stations needed more
ladders. On motion of Aid. McCul-
• lum and Brown, tho committee was
authorized to purchase the required
number, after a consultation with the
fire chief.
Aid. Brown called the attention of
the board of works to a number of
loose planks in the sidewalk near the
First street bridge.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Crossen, Mr. Savage was placed under
the jurisdiction of the city clerk.
Aid. McCallum thought that in the
event of the First street bridge being
closed, the board of works should hunt
up a good ford across the river, and
have the approaches to it properly
graded.
The liquor license question was then
taken   up.   Mayor  Hammar  stated
0      that the commissioners were not yet
ready to bring in a full report, as more
radical changes in the present system
were contemplated. He thought
eight licenses would be sufficient for
the city. If the council was willing
to co-operate with the commissioners,
he did not think it would be necessary to put the question to a vote of
the electors. If the hotels and saloons
were reduced, the license fees should
be increased so as not to materially
curtail the revenue. If the council
saw fit, it could grant five licenses to
hotels and three to saloons, making
the former 1500 and the latter (750,
or it could make all of them hotel
licenses.
Aid. Clements favored cutting the
licenses down to as low a number as
possible. The fewer, the better they
could be conducted.
Mayor Hammar stated that he had
signed no licenses for the present
term. Permits for one month had
been granted to all the honses.
Aid. Brown was of the same opinion as Aid. Clements, and thought the
licenses should be reduced, but was in
favor of both hotels and saloons.
Aid. Henniger said the present
liquor license by-law suited him as it
now stood. If the bottle license bylaw was to be repealed on the grounds
of public morals, all saloon licenses
should be cut out. If a change was
to be made, however, he favoreigrant-
iug hotel licenses only, and then rigidly enforce the law as laid down in the
Act.
Aid. Crossen thought the licenses
should be cut down one-half. Only
hotel licenses should be granted.
Aid. Hutton desired te know the
object of this radical change.
Mayor Hammar answered by saying
that1 fewer licenses granted the easier
it would be to enforce the law.
Aid. Hutton differed in this view.
In Ontario, he said, with a 5 per cent
reduction in saloons, drunkenness had
increased 10 per cent. The contem
plated change would do an injustice
to the men closed up, many of whom
had all they possessed invested in this
business and property here. If the
law was being violated, the city main;
tained a police force to go after the
saloonkeepers who did so. If the
change was made, he favored high
license fee. Many people, he said
would like to see bottle licenses re
main as it now stands.
Aid. Brown was afraid that if only
hotel licenses were granted, licencees
would lease their dining-rooms to ir
responsible outside parties.
Aid. Henniger wished to know, if
this was done, if licencees would'nt be
held responsible for the accounts con
tracted by the parties. He wished
to know if a clause to this effect
couldn't be inserted in the by-la
The mayor thought it would not be
legal.
Aid. McCallum, in answer to Aid
Hutton, said the object of the proposed by-law was to give the city au
air of respectability. It would do
away with "dumps," of which, he was
sorry to to say, the eity had one or
two. There were good arguments on
both sides of the question. Hotels,
under the present by-law, had no
chance to compete with the saloons,
as the dining-rooms eat up the profits
of the bars. But, as he had said,
there were also arguments on the
other side of the question, and this
was why he would like to see the matter decided by the electors. It would
relieve both the council and the commissioners of the responsibility of

eminent men in his profession, and is
employed by railway companies in
various parts of (the world in selecting
routes. He was recently in Guatemala making choice of route for a railway across the Andes.
The bowling alley is being moved
into the building formerly occupied
by the Bodega saloon.
Patrick Welch, the railway contractor, passed1 through the city last
evening on his way to Spokane.
A report was received from Greenwood last Saturday evening that the
B.'C Copp*S«7 company's smelter had
been temporarily closed down owing
to a walk-out on the part of the employees. The trouble issaid to have
arisen over the appointment of a new
arrival from Tennessee as chief feeder.
The men resented this action and refused to work with him.
The new Worthington centrifugal
pump for the city waterworks arrived in Grand Iforks last Saturday
evening, and is now being placed in
positien at the pumping station
near the Kettle river. The pump
was manufactured by the Canadian
Fairbanks Company, of Montreal,
and cost $1500 at the factory. With
the present 60 horsepower electric
motor it has a capacity of 600 galls,
per minute. This amount can be
increased to 1000 gallons per minute
by the installation of a 100 horsepower motor. The old pump has
a capacity of 400 gallons per minute. The new pump will be set up
and in working order in about a
week's time. It will afford better
fire protection, ns the pressure will
be materially increased.
Chas. Thomas, proprietor of the
Cascade hotel, states the recent fire
made a clean sweep of his property,
and that he saved absolutely nothing
from the flames. Even (300 belonging to his wife was burnt, as well as
his stable, chicken house and a well-
bred bull which cost him $100. The
The fire started in his back shed from
some unknown cause, and not from an
electric wire, as at first supposed.
The loss to Mr. Thomas is at least
$5000. He had only $1000 insurance. The damage to Wolverton's
store and other buildings bnrned will
be at least 810,000 more. In Edition to this, several of Mr. Thomas'
boarders lost everything in the form of
clothing and valuables. When the
fire was once started the wind blew
the flames ahead of it. Mr. Thomas
has not yet decided what to do, but
he will probably rebuild at the old
stand as soon as possible.

RAILWAYS ACTIVE
Vernon Man's Views on the
Situation in the Similkameen Country
Believes C.P.R. Is Preparing
to Build West From
Midway
"The C.P.R. is preparing to contest with the Great Northern Railway for a share of the vast but potential tonnage of the Similkameen,"
according to S. tl. Smith, of Vernon.
Mr. Smith owns a sash and door
factory at Vernon, and is thoroughly conversant with conditions in the
vast region lying west of Okanagan
lake He is now visiting Vancouver,
and told the local newspapermen of
the activity in railway construction
now prevalent in the Similkameen
and Nicola districts.
"It is certain," Mr. Smith said,
"that the road now being built
from Spence's Bridge will form a
link in the C.P.R.'s plan for tapping
the Okanagan and Similkameen.
Contrary to the general belief, the
C.P.R. has not been caught napping
but will have an almost direct route
betweeo the Kootenays, the Boundary, the Okanagan and the Similkameen long before the Great Northern succeeds in getting west of tbe
Hope mountains. The American
road has made the first start, but
the C.P.R. can make more rapid
progress if it undertakes work simultaneously at Midway, Penticton,
Summerland and a number of other
points.
"I imagine, however, that the
king fight will be waged over tbe
ore traffic, which is destined to
equal, if not surpass, that of the
Boundary district, where the Hill
road has been getting a large share
of the ore tonnage.
"Of course, the people in the districts referred to will heartily welcome both railways. They have
been waiting so long for railway
facilities that they are not worrying
over Mr. Hill's invasion ; nor likewise are they concerned whether the
C.P.R. and its rival engage in a death
struggle. All such talk is rank
nonesense, for no such sentiment
exists in the upper country.
"Personally I rejoice at the restrictions requiring Hill to make his
western terminus at Canadian tidewater, but just bow many years will
elapse before this line is extended
across the Hope mountains is another question. The Great Northern has other business to attend to
in the meantime. However, I feel
confident there is nothing in the report that Hill will seek to haul the
ores of thc Siiiiilkaineen to American smelters.
In the first place, most of the
Similkameen ores are refractory and
of low grade, hence they will seek
treatment at home, for the reason
that they cannot stand a long haul.
By virtue of a simple economic law,
the smelting industry is hound to
develop in the Similkameen, where
large waterpowers abound. The
C.P.R. will be a live competitor, and
judging from the manner it has recently looked after its interests at
Rossland and Trail, won't allow the
Hill road to do all thc gobbling." 2ty? Ebnrnuj #rot

TUESDAY, JULY 18, 1905
Reports from Alberni state that the
socialist influence is being directed
towards the government candidate
for whom J. H. Hawthornwaite is
working hard.. Mr. Hawthornwaite
and Parker Williams, the socialist
members, had a platform encounter
with Mr. Oliver, the member for
Delta, at Wellington, which was
pretty lively while it lasted, the facts
and figures of the farmer-member in
the end reducing the government
apologists to silence. Attorney-General Wilson, who was present, spent a
few minutes flattering the socialists
and congratulating Nanaimo and Newcastle on the men they had chossn to
represent them. The political crisis,
in fact, has had the effect of making
the Socialist-Conservative alliance
more prominent than ever. The leaders on both sides have almost forgotten to disavow them. Ralph Smith,
M. P., and W. Sloan, M. P., have arrived from Ottawa to take part in the
campaign. J. A. Macdonald, M.P.P.,
leader of the opposition, is also on the
ground. On the other side, Premier
McBride and Chief Commissioner
Greon are doing battle for Mr. Man-
son. Meetings are being held simultaneously in various parts of the constituency, and altogether a strenuous
battle is proceeding in the constituency.
"Better than ever in its history
and everything pointing ahead hopefully," was the way in which S. H.
C. Miner spoke of British Columbia
in an interview in Vancouver. Mr.
Miner is one of the most largely interested of eastern men in British
Columbia resources. He gave a direct denial to the report that he was
withdrawing his money from British
Columbia investments. He was retiring as far as possible from active
management, but his money would
remain, as he did not think he could
place it better. Mr. Miner is a quiet
man, but he became almost enthusiastic when he spoke of the Granby
smelter and the mines at Phoenix.
"Why," he said, "ours is the only
copper mine in the world that is
being operated by a steam shovel.
I am very glad that I ever struck
British Columbia."
City Solicitor Miller thought it
would be best to draft the new by-law
before submitting the question to the
people.
Mayor Hammar expressed the opinion that the new by-law probably
could not be enforced before the first
of the year. In granting licenses
under the proposed by-law, people
who owned the premises they occupied
should be given first consideration.
On motion, Aid. McCallum was
granted leave to withdraw his bottle
liquor by-law, in view of the fact that
it is to be incorporated in the new bylaw.
On motion of Aid. • Hutton and
Clements, it was decided that it was
the sense of the council that the
liquor question be submitted to the
people.
Aid. Clements gave notice that he
would introduce a new liquor license
by-law at next meeting of the council.
Aid. Crossen drew the council's attention to a dance which had lasted
until after midnight last Saturday.
The council then adjourned until
Monday evening, July 31.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
K. S. Hankinson, secretary to J.
H. Kennedy, chief engineer of the
V., V. & E., was a gqest at the Yale
over Sunday, arriving in the city
from Keremeos Saturday evening.
Olaf Everson, while returning from
P. T. McCallum and I. A. Dinsmore's
ranch last Saturday night, killed a
rattlesnake on Manly's ranch that
measured 4ft. lin. in length, and had
fourteen rattles. His snakeship
showed fight w.hen Mr. Everson was
ten feet away from him. You needn't
take our word as to the size and the
number of rattles of the snake. P.
T. McCallum measured him and counted the buttons.
A telegram was received by W. H.
P. Clement last Saturday from Brampton, Ont., stating the mother of Mesdames W. H. P. Clement and J. D.
Spence, of this city, had just died at
that place. Mr. and Mrs. Spence,
who have been visiting in Brampton
during the past six months, will probably return to this city in the course
of a week or two.
A disastrous fire occurred last
week near the Johnson ranch, near
tbis city, and before it could extinguished had consumed over ten
tons of hay and a quantity of grain.
All the ranchers in the vicinity were
out fighting the flames. The fire is
said to have been started. by the
careless lighting of a cigarette by a
traveler.
Ralston and Gordon McLellan will

A Bad Bruise
Often causes a good deal of trouble.
The best cure is a prompt application
of Nerviline, which instantly stops the
pain, prevents swelling, removes all
blackness and discoloration. Nerviline
is antiseptic—prevents blood poisoning. No liniment so strong, so penetrating, so swift to destroy pain. You
miss a lot of comfort by not using
Poison's Nerviline. For "nearly fifty
years it has been the standard afmilv
liniment of Canada.

Premier McBride last Saturday entered an action against the Victoria
Times for $10,000 damages for an

WISE AND OTHERWISE
The mission of the dude is to
show what man was before he became a man.
The man who could not fill the
office better than the man elected
has yet to be born.
A woman looking for a rich husband is much like u confidence man
looking for a jay.
Misfortune generally comes in
pairs, especially if the "other fellow"
holds three of a kind.
Thirteen is not considered unlucky by the man who gets that
number for the price of a dozen.
If you have warts on your hands
you should be thankful that you
have not freckles on your face.
No one has yet been able to explain why a baldheaded man has
his hair cut oftener than other men.
Many a man's haste to get ahead
in the world results only in his getting a t.eadstone before it is due.
Arguments may not change a
man's political opinions, but a two-
dollar bill will o'ften change his
vote.
One touch of nature makes the
whole world kin, and two touches
indicate that you are an easy mark.
Many a man who finds it easy
enoguh to buy things on time finds it
mighty hard to pay for them on
time.
Wearing Away Your Lungs?
Yes, and your strength too. Stop
coughing and get rid of that catarrh.
The only remedy is Catarrhozone, which
goes to the diseased tissues along with
air you breathe; it can't fail to reach
the source of the trouble; it's bound
to kill the germs, and as for healing
up sore places, nothing can surpass
Catajrhozone. If ydu don't get instant relief and ultimate cure you will
at least yet your money back, for Catarrhozone is guaranteed to cure catarrh in any part of the system. You
run no risk—therefore use Catarrhozone—at our expense if not satisfied.
PRINTS all the news of the
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the
only twice-a-weck paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
or controlled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a combination of merchants

detriment of their rivals.
' Tub Sun is the sole property of it« publisher, aud no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When iti editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. lie does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
different parties about what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads Till: Six twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the

the brain, but in the blood, which is
thin and innutritious. Do the right
