A Number of Special Meetings Have Been Held
During the Week
Fire Limits Bylaw Being Enacted as Quickly as
.   Possible
A special meeting of city city
council was held in the council
chambers Friday evening, the mayor
and all the aldermen being present.
There was also a good attendance of
The committee appointed at the
special meeting Monday night to enquire into the feasibility of raising
street grade in the four down-town
business blocks, reported that, they
haa gone thoroughly into the matter, and had found that a street
grade had been established during
tbe early days of the city. In order
to change this grade the consent of
all property owners affected would
have to be obtained, which they did
not think could be secured. Owing
to these facts, and also in view of
the heavy expense the change would
entail upon the city, the committee
reported adversely on the scheme
After some discussion the council
accepted the report.
Aid. Clark, of the committee appointed to investigate the advisability of making a public park out of the
burnt district, reported adversely on
the scheme, as the city was not in a
financial condition at present to
carry out the project. The report
was adopted.
■ Aid. McCallum suggested the appointment of a practical man not
affiliated with the. board of aldermen as building inspector. Laid
over till the next regular meeting.
The mayor invited the citizens
present to express their views as to
course should be pursued in rebuilding the city—on he character df the
new buildings, fire limits, sewerage
system, drainge and the raising of
street grades.
Mr. J. B. Henderson said that
while he was not a sanitary engineer, be had traveled extensively,
and had always kept his eyes open.
In his opinion now was the proper
time to Inaugurate a sewerage system in the (wo blocks destroyed by
fire. The most feasible plan that
presented itself to his mind .was the
laying nf a trunk sewer line  to the
ties should be encountered in constructing cement cellars in this city.
Mr. W. K. C. Manly made an
earnest plea for the raising of the
Btreet grade at least eighteen inches.
He stated that there was no likelihood of his erecting a new business
block until the grade was raised.
Messrs. Traunweiser, Spier and Pribilsky also spoke in favor of this
project. The major explained the
result of the committee's investiga-
in this connection. Messrs. Manly
and Spier did not think the matter
had been thoroughly explained to
the property owners. The establishment by the council of a higher
grade did not necessarily mean the
filling in of the streets at present.and
would therefore entail no immediate expense to the property owners.
This plan was objected to by some
on the ground that it would make
an unsightly city. Mr. Henderson
thought that one way out of the
dilemma would be dredge the river
nnd lower the stream. This would
answer the same purpose as raising
thc grade, and with tho scientific
methods employed in doing this
kind of work nowadays would
probably cost less than the grading.
The council then adjourned till
Monday night.
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chamber Monday evening,
Mayor Fripp and all the members
being present.
The finance committee's report
recommended the payment of the
past month's accumulation of accounts. Approved and bills ordered
to be paid.
A communication from Chief
Savage suggested that the council
pass a vote of thanks to the smelter
company for assistance during the
recent fire. Accepted, and the clerk
was instructed to extend the appreciation ol the council to the Granby
The olerk was authorized to forward the membership fee to the
League of Canadian Municipalities.
On motion, the various departments were instiuctcd to furnish the
council with a statement of tools
and equipment on hand.
The clerk was authorized to have
the office furniture, books, maps,
etc., insured.
The chairman of the water nnd
light committee recommended that
tenders be called for 25 electric light
poles. The committee estimated
the city's loss by the recent fire to
he eleven metres, seven transformers' and ten electric light pules, ihe
total value of which was about $600,
special meeting to he held Wednesday evening he would introduce a
bylaw defining the fire limits of the
city of Grand Forks.
The   council then adjourned till
Wednesday evening.
A special meeting of the council
was held Wednesday evening for
the purpose of permitting of the introduction and consideration of a
bylaw defining the (ire limits in the
city of Grand Forks. The mayorI
and all the aldermen' were in attendance.
Aid. Clark wns granted leave to
introduce the bylaw,  whicli  passed
its   first   and second readings and
partly through the committee stage.
The boundaries nf the lire district,
as originally specified in the  bylaw,

Grand Forks Fruit and Nursery Company, Ltd., In-
General Nursery Business,
Canners and Packers and
Nursery Supplies
The last issue of the British Columbia Gazette contains a notice of
the incorporation of the Grand
Forks Fruit and Nursery Company,
Ltd. The company is given power
to carry on a general nursery business, and in addition that of canners
and packers and dealers in nursery
supplies. The capital is .825,000.
The incorporators are Tweddlo and
Son and Mr. Hill, of Fruitland,
Niagara peninsula, Ontario, and J.
D. Honsberger, the well known fruit
grower of tbis city.
The property of the company adjoins the western boundaries of the
city limits, and comprises some of
the finest orchard lands in the valley, being a portion of the old
Newby ranch. Messrs. Tweddle and
son and Hill are experienced Ontario nurserymen, and their removal
to this district augurs well for the
fruit industry of the valley. Improvements on an extensive scale
will carried out on the company's
property next season.

gratifying success.

the Quebec tercentenary celebration
have been received at the Grand

pictures of the king and queen.
While Mr. Gilpin is enjoying his
vacation at Hayden Lake, the king's
business at the customs office in this
city is being attended to by Wm.
Cook. Mr. Cook expects to be
knighted or benighted before Mr.
Gilpins returns.
The late fire has brought about
some ludicrous combinations. For
instance, a plumbing shop and clothing store are now doing business in
the same store. Tne two firniB
should join forces and manufacturer
sanitary clothing and unshrinkable
plumbers' bills.
Milt White, who had bit place of
business destroyed by} the late fire,
has fitted up new quarters between
the telephone office and Bob Pri-
bilsky's barber shop. Mr. White
has a superabundance of room in
his new store, but it is not very
conveniently proportioned. Approximately speaking, it is 2 feet wide by
250 feet long. This makes it necessary for customers who enter the
store to keep mi walking until they
reach the Kettle river in search of
turning-around room.

Street Grades, Fire Limits
and Sanitary Matters
Freely Discussed
Immediately after the adjournment
of the eity council on Friday evening, a citizens' meeting was held in
the city hull, when the initiatory
steps were taken towards the reorganization of the Grand Forks board of
trade. Mayor Fripp was appointed
temporary chairman, and A. B. Hood
secretary pro tem.
It wns unanimously decided to style
the organization the Grand Folks
Board of Trade, instead of the Citizens' League, as had been suggested
bv some of those in attendance.
The time for the election of officers
having arrived, the chairman look occasion to impress upon those present
the importance of the president and
secretary being men of energy, public
spirited and with time at their
disposal to devote to the organization.
The officers cho-en are: President,
A. B. Hood; vice president, W, It. C.
Manly; i-e.'i-etary-treasurer, D. McCallum.
Mr. Hood thanked the meeting for
the confidence placed in him by unanimously electing hiin president. He
enumerated a number of.knotty problems that the board 'would have to
solve. There were lots of things, lie
said, thnt the city could get if we only
had the courage to go after them.
Among the most important were, railway divisional facilities and railway
shops, better freight rates and a Sunday train service.
Vice-President Manly was instructed to mnke n search for the bylaws of
the old board.
The question of raising tho street
grade in the four business blocks of
the city was discussed at considerable
length. Messrs. Manly, Traunweiser,
Spier, Larsen and Pribilsky advocated
a raise of eighteen inches. Mayor
Fripp explained that a street grade
had been estftblisbed dining the early
history of the city, and that in order
to change it, it would ho necessary to
secure the consent of every property
owner nllci-ted.     If this consent could
he   sec d,   he   thought  the council
would he willing to pass a bylaw raising; the grade,   'I'he  followiug  n-
niittec was appointed to make further
Investigations regarding this subject)
Messrs. A. 11. I food, W, K.C. Manly,
A. Traunweiser, Ed Davis, Jeffery
Hammar, Geo. Chappie and E. Miller.
The i|uestion of putting in a sewerage system in the business centre wns
nisi, brought up, nnd the matter wns
discussed in a general way, but no
linn! conclusion wns reached, Mr.
S|,ier thought the plan Mr. .1. B.
Henderson had suggested to the city
council wns the most feasible Scheme
that had yet been made.
The meeting then adjourned till
Thursday evening.
Owing, undoubtedly, to the unsettled weather, there was not a quorum at Inst night's meeting. Another
meeting of the board hns been called
for next Monday iiiglit,iu the city hall
after the council meeting, when street
grades und sanitary matters will bu
considered. HAVE YOU

FBIDAY, JULY 24, 1908
'THIE Conservative papers of Yale-
1 Cari boo have m uch to say these
days concerning what they term the
injustice of deferring the federal election in the district, and are crying
out loudly for a "square deal." No
one would be better pleased to see a
"square deal" all around than the
Liberals ot the riding. But as long
as the McBride government prefers
to spend public money in sending
ministerial parties through the
province on campaigning jaunts,
instead of using it for building roads
and trails, thus jmaking it possible
to distribute the ballot boxes in
time, there appears to be no way of
abolishingthe system complained of.
It should he remembered that in the
last provincial election.* the govern-
'ment found it necessary to hold a
couple of bye-electious in Yale-Cariboo.    We heard  no detiiund   tin

A. Dinsmore, who has been an actiye

a great many years. David White
side, in his customary eloquent manner, made a very touching presentation address to Brother Dinsmore in
presenting him, on behalf of the members of Gateway lodge, a handsome
past grand's jewel, suitable engraved.
Notwithstanding the fact that Mr.
Dinsmore is a man of uerve, his line
of work calling for coolness under

he managed to respond, but which he
finally did in a feeling manner.

postoffice inspector for British Colum
bia, was in the city this week for the
purpose of examining the local post-

where he will establish a money order
office, and will then go on through to
the coast by way of the Okanagan.

If you want to spring a surprise on
yourself sit down some evening and
count the number of white lies you
have told during the day.
Out little eccentricities are bori e
patiently by our friends and ridiculed
by our enemies, while we are entirely
unaware of their existence.
It may be all very well to want to
get' even, but lots of people want lo
get even, odd and then even again,
which isn't christian.
When a man's wages become a
salary, it merely means that he is
worrying himself sick trying to keep
up appearances.
The best way to keep a friend is
always to keep a stock of something
he wants and never to let hiin have
enough of it.
Even if a man doesn't make any attempt to Hirt *ith a pretty girl on the
publio street she suspects that he'd
iike lo.
A man who can't fiud an excuse to
go a-fishing these days hasn't enough
originality to stand off the tm collector.
Bewure of the suspicious person—
what one accuses others of is apt to be
the very thing he is himself guilty of.
If people would do half the things
they are going to do tomorrow, whal a
progressive old world'this would be.
People have to become acquainted
with luck before they believe in it,and
they ure lucky if they get a chance.
Sometimes when a woman rejects
an otter of marriage she saves the man
in the case a lot of future misery.
It might be wise to regard the good
resolutions of others with charity, but
your own with suspicion.
Thoughtlessness covers a multitude
of sins, evtn if we accept a woman's
definition of the <vord.
To a woman it always seems a sinful
waste of money to pay taxes with it,
and there are others.
It always seems as if housecli-aning
time and homely women all come together in a bunch.
A woman doesn't object to u husband with a will of hisown—provided
it is in her favor.
Tho optimist invests in a box of

side of life.
A girl's idea of a beau is a young
man she doesn't want any other girl
to get.
Itiches have wings, but poverty
hasn't—so the poor are always with
The less famous a man is the easier
it is for him to dodge his creditors.
Don't expect the preacher to "make
good" for the entire congregation.
There is probably nothing that is so
bad but that it might be better.
It is always a good job to make an
abrupt end of a bad job.
Tbe person who wants to be let alone
is either mad or in love.
Always meet people with a smile—
if it's your turn to troat.
There is lots of fun in doing things
you don'vt want to do.

An Athlete
W. P, Moore, for a number of years
teller in the Royal bank in this city,
has gone to Rossland, where he has
accepted a position as bookkeeper
with the Hunter-Kendrick coinpany.
Mr. Moore's many friends in this city
are united in wishing hiin ample success in his new field of labor.
The vacancy in the bank caused by
Mr. Moore's departure has been filled
by S. J. Winsby, of Chilliwack. The
Chilliwack Progress of last week pays
Mr. Winsby the following compliment: "On Friday evening a number
of the friends of S. J. Winsby met in
his rooms and presented him with a
suit case as a token of their goodwill and appreciation for his sterling
qualities and manliness, whether in
the bank or on the recreation grounds.
Mr. Winsby is going to be missed in
Chilliwack, and particularly so in the
baseball team, ln athletics Mr. Winsby carried no mean record, having
only this year defeated twice the second prize winner at the Olympic trials
in Seattle—once in Chilliwack in
July 1, in the 100-ynrd race, and in
Seattle on July -i, in the 100-yard
and 220-yard sprints. Along wi.h
the suit case he carries to Grand
Forks the good wishes of every person."
