THE CITY COUNCIL
West End Residents Make.a
Strong Protest Agdnst
a Nuisance
Slaughter House Detrimental
to the  Health of
the City
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chambers on Monday evening, the mayor and Aid. Sheads,
Manly and McCallum being in attendance.
A communication from the provincial board of health was read,
and referred to the health and relief commitee.
A communication from F. R. S.
Barlee regarding street sprinkling
hours was referred to the water and
light committee.
The  following   petition was received  from   West   end    property
owners:
To the  Mayor and Council of the
City of Grand Forks:
The petition of the undersigned
residents and ratepayers of said city
humbly showeth:
That in the fall of the year 1907
Robinson & Elmore erected a slaughe-
ter house on part of lot 530, group
I, Similkameen division of Yale
district, and within the corporate
limits of said city.
That previous to the erection of
said building, and while said partic s
were contemplating the erection of
same, they were notified by the
clerk of the city that it was against
the law to mail t lin a slaughte -
house within the city limits, and
that the city would not allow a
slaughter house to he carried on
within the limitB thereof, which notice was given at the instance of the
then city council.
That notwithstanding such notice
said parties erected said slaughter
house and commenced fhe slaughtering of animals therein.
That the council of 1907, upon ascertaining that they were slaughtering animals, promptly prohibited
them from continuing slaughtering
animals therein, whereupon said
parties ceased operations in said
slaughter house and erected and
maintained one outside the limits of
said city.
That during the year 1908 they
again commenced slaughtering animals in said slaughter house within
said city limits and have continued
uninterruptedly to slaughter animals therein, and now are slaughtering therein, notwithstanding the
fact that the ceuncil of 1908 notified
them to quit.
That the said slaughter house is
situate about 200 feet from the Kettle river and above the intake of the
city water system, and they use the
water of said river for slaughtering
and allow it to seep back into the
river.
That they keep a large number of
pigs—aboutfifty—all the time on
the land on which the slaughter
house is situate, and allow them to
go into the river and wallow in it,
and allow them to roam at will over
other peoples' land.
That the points in said   river   in
which Baid pigs have access  thereto
are above the intake of the city water,
system. ]
That dead pigs have been found '
near Elmore's land on the bank of
said river above the intake of said
water system, and on the 27th day
of April, 1909, a dead pig might
have been found on the brink of
said river near Robinson & Elmore's
land.
That on hot days the stench from
said slaughter house and pig byres
is intolerable, and your petitioners
are advised, greatly to the prejudice
of the public health.
That the summer of 1908 was the
first summer animals were slaughtered at said slaughter houBe.
That the number of deaths in
Grand Forks during the months of
July, August, September and October, 1907, was five; that the number
of deaths in said city for said
months dueing 1908 was 28.
Your petitioners therefore pray
that Robinson & Elmore be forthwith prohibited from maintaining a
slaughter house within the limits of
said city, and that they be prohibited from keeping pigs within said
city or maintaining any other nuisance therein.
And your petitioners will ever
pray.
(Over 30 signers.)

committee, with instructions to tbe
city solicitor to act in the matter.

and good nature, and Judge Wilson
is possessed of both theso requisites.

company, and George Heatherton

There is no reason who the people
of that portion of the West ward
where the slaughter house is located
should not receive ample protection.
They pay revenue into the city
treasury the same as the property
owners in other sections of the town.
No one is foolish enough to believe
that the city council would tolerate
such an institution in the more
populous districts of Grand Forks.

THE VOICE OF OOD AND THE NATIONS
From the ends of the earth to its heart-throbs, there is  heard a voice as  of
prayer—
The still small voice Jehovah-inspired, breaking in on the prophet's despair—
A forerunning call for repentance, presaging the wisdom that saves—
With mankind awake, its ways to forsake,
In Mammon's demesne that depraves:
The Lord God of Hosts!    He reigneth supreme!
And who may his immanence wilful blaspheme,
While urging the helm in some petty realm,
As if God's o'er-ruling were only a dream?
The voice of God and the nations! The voice that novor grows old!
The voice that's heard 'mid the turmoil, confronting the godhead of gold!
Give heeding, I pray you, give heeding to its gospel so often renewed:
Take up the refrain, nor seek to disdain
The cause that would hallow the good.
The Lord God of Hosts!    He reigneth supreme!
What anthem cun compass the wondrous theme.
Give hoed, giving ear with your back on despair,
Tu the voice of the nations renewing its claim!
Astray!    Ah, how far in our straying of him who is Father of All!
Oh, pray that this voice of the nations should fill the whole earth with its call
To restore the ambitions to Tightness, in the heirship the human may claim
As tho gift of God's grace, for the saving of race,
In a world so prone to its shame!
The Lord God of Hosts!    He reigneth supreme!
And who is there dares His deorees disesteem?
The Divine—the sublime—is the gospel of time,
That calls to the nations the good to redeem.

then Imve a simple question? A. Yes,
so simple tlvit they worked it in >■
few minutes Q What excuse has the
department made for having put Mint
impossible question on the paper? A.
That it was the primer's fault? Q.
With the exhibition of such ignorance
on the Cnnadian history paper (which
cannot be blamed on the printer), is it
not probable that this question was
put on through ignorance also? A.
Yes. Q. Was it not a cowardly act
to put the blame on the printed A.
Yes. Q. Ts not the government

Q, Why did inspector Stewart instruct the pupils at New Westminster |

Inspector Wilson instruct the pupils
at Nanaimo to work it out as it
was? A. Too hard. Q. Ts it not
scandalous that the pupils should
have heen treated in such a different
manner by the department at those
two places? A. Yes; at New Westminster the pupils had a very simple
question and lost no time. At Nanaimo thev had an impossible one and
wasted a lot of time. Q. Is it not
also scandalous that the pupils at
both places, who gave the corrrot and
truetmswer to that question should I
get no credit for it? A. Yes. Q Was
it not particularly unjust to the pupil
who tried the question as it was on
the paper about 20 times and wiote
for the answer, "it cannot be done,"
and after all to get no credit for it?
A. Yes, very unjust—it amounted to |
cheating that pupil out of 1.4 or 15
marks in arithmetic.

Avenue. The Tenderfoot Farmer
It was one of these experimental farmers, who put green
spectacles on his cow and fed her shavings. His theory
was that it didn't matter what the cow ate so long as she
was fed. The questions of digestion and nourishment had
not entered into his calculations.
It's only a "tenderfoot" farmer that would try such
an experiment with a cow. But many a farmer feeds himself regardless of digestion and nutrition. He might almost as well eat shavings for all the good he gets out of his food. The result is that the stomach
grows "weak" the action of the organs of digestion and nutrition are impaired
and the man suffers the miseries of dyspepsia and the agonies of nervousness.
To strengthen tiie stomach, restore the activity ol the or.
tana ol digestion and nutrition and brace up the nerves,
use Dr. Pierce's Golden medical Discovery.  It Is an on*
lalllni remedy, and has the confidence ol physicians as
well as the praise ol thousands healed by Its use.
In the strictest 6ense "Golden Medical Discovery" is a temperance medicine.   It contains neither intoxicants nor narcotics, and is ns free from alcohol
as from opium, cocaine and other dangerous drugs.    AH Ingredients printed on
its outside wtupper.

Did Eriderbv, a oity also without a
hiidi Rohool, pass up six pupils, head
pupil got 842 marks, and aet no medal |in 1906? A. Tes. Q. Did this
Enderby pupil, Ernest Evans, get
the mewt murks of all the pupils in the
province that •cummer? A. Yen; hut a
pupil nt the Christmas examination at
New Westminster equalled him, Q.
If thnt wa-c no favoritism, was it not
worse? A. Yes, when the pupil who
headed the^ whole province got no
medal, and also had a better claim to
it than Ladysmi'h, Q. Did the pu
pil at Essingtnn who got 831 marks
and headed    the   whole   province  in
1907 get a medal? A. No. Q. Did
the pupil at Cedar Hill, who headed
the whole province on the rural set of
questions, both city and country
schools, in 1908, get a medal? A.
No.    Q,   Were any medals given   in
1908 on the re u't< of the rural set of
questions? A. Yes, four; namely, Kelowna, Ladysinitli, Armstrong and
Golden.
OBJECT ATTAINED.
Q. Did the department gain anything by its tale to Chilliwack? A.
Yes. Chilliwack was perfectly satisfied until the exposure was made by
ine. Q Did it gain anything by its
tale to the trustee convention? A.
Yes. It prevented the delegate frnm
Reefers' school from introducing his
resolution about those bronze medals.
Q. Did it gain anything by its tale to
eSpallunioheen? A. No. Unfortunately for it, Lansdown, where no
medal was giyen, is in the same municipality as Armstrong, where the
medal was given, and they  are   both j
under the same school board. Q, Did
lbe pupil at Lansdown get 90 marks
more than the pupil that got the
medal? A. Yes. Q. Was this not
similar to what it would be to give the
medal al**'uvs fo the Central school at
Victoria because the high school happens to be there? A. Yes. Q. Would
not the other schools at Victoria
likelv be discontented with such an
arrangement? A. Yes, likely; and so
was Lansdown. Q What is the name
given in the dictionary tc, such tales?
\. Lies: Q. What question is asked
in the authorized reader at the end of
the "Wolf. Wold" story? A. Who can
believe a boy that, lies?
TIIK GOVERNOR GENERAL.
Q. What does Earl Grev, our governor general think about fair play?
A. "He had heen shocked sometimes
at the conspicuous disregard for fair
play in sports, and he urged the boys
of Trinity school to give no countenance to those who did not play the
game fair. If the sports of Canada
were not quite straight or fair, they
might be certain theie was something
rotten in the character of Canada."
Q. Who said thai* A. Earl Grey in a
speech ut Port Hope, Out., in Octo
ber, 19U7. Q Do you think he was
shocked when he was informed last
midsummer of the scandalous manner
in which his lo bronze medals had
been distributed in British Columbia?
A. Yes, verv likelv. Q. Is it not
lidelv he will be more shocked now
when he reader this exposure of this
shameless attempts that have been
made bv the department to justify il?
A. Without doubt. Q. Does not
Earl Grey's speech condemn the department as rotten if the statements
made herein by me are true? A. Yes.
