A communication from Wm, Spier
waa read. Mr. Spier tendered his resignation as a member of the school
board, as he is about to remove from
the city. A letter from the secretary
of the school board conveyed the same
information to the council. The city
solicitor, in a letter to the board,
stated that a separate election would
be required to Bill the vacancy caused
by Mr. Spier's resignation, as the ad
vertising for the regular election next
week has already been done. The
communications were placed on file.
A communication from Charles
Bickerton asked the council to set «
price on the old Columbia jail build
ing. The council decided to sell if
Mr.JBickerton was willing so pay f40
for it.
A letter from C. J, Fagan, secretary of the provincial board of health,
advised the council that the legislature would meet on the ,16th inst.,
and the department would like to get
the city's annual health report as soon
as possible. The city health officer's
report, which follows, was ordered
sent to Victoria:
To the Members of the City Council
ofthe City of Orand Forks:
Dear Sirs:—! beg to submit a report of the health condition of Grand
Forks and vicinity for 1907. Infectious diseases:
No. of   No. of   Cured or
Cases.   Deaths Removed
Typhoid  51        3 48

We had several cases of chickenpox
as well as mumps, an exact record of
which it is very difficult to keep, as
the cases are frequently uot reported.
Six Japanese laborers employed by
the Yale-Columbia Lumber company
at Cascade Were found suffering with
typhoid, and were brought to Orand
Forks for treatment. Measures were
at unce used to thoroughly cleanse the
premises occupied by them, with the
result that no further cases developed,
though some twenty men occupied the
Three or four cases only were
brought in last year from the North
Fork, where so many cases of typhoid
developed during construction of the
Kettle Valley railway the year before. With the exception'of four other
isolated cases in the neighborhood,
all the other typhoid cases developed
within the eity limits.
Eleven cases of diphtheria'developed at Fife. Nine of these came to
Grand Forks for treatment, two remaining at home. One died at Fife
and one at the Cottage hospital.
Prompt measures were here adopted
to prevent the spread of, aud to erad
icate the dijjease, which means proved
*W4t1f respect to infectious diseases,
the year 1907 closed with almost a
clear sheet. A few cases only of
chickenpox remained. The general sanitary condition of the residence
portion of the city may be said to be
good; but not so good in the down
town or business portion, where for
lack of drainage, perfect sanitation
is well nigh impossible.
Milk tests were made from time to
time, and showed that the milk supply was free from chemical impurities
and up to the standard as regards
cream and butter-fat.
I have on various occasions called
the attention of the city to the fact
that it has no isolation hospital, nor
any suitable \\ Ci in which to take
care of such diseases as smallpox, diphtheria or scarlet fever. As the province should be equally interested with
the city in this matter, might it not
be arranged that the government join
the city in the erection of a small isolation hospital 1 The cost of a suita
ble building should not exceed (1200.
Yours very truly,
C. M. Kingston.
The board of works reported in fa
vor of paying Mr. Burton $8 for
some logs used by Mr. Woodhead
The usual number of monthly ac
counts were ordered paid, The South
Kootenay Power company's bill for
power for December amounted to
1643.30, which is stated to be a sating of probably $200 over the old
power contract.
The consideration of the commissioners' report was postponed until
Thursday evening.
Aid. Woodland was granted permission to introduce a bylaw providing for the doting of a portion of Spokane avenue, and also a lane, for the
benefit of the skating rink. The bylaw
was rushed through the committee
stage and passed its third reading.
Dr. Kingston reported that there
was a patient in the Cottage hospital
who was liable to become a city charge
for three or four months. The man
had been injured in Ferry caunty,
Washington. He had evidently been
on a protracted spree. He had some
deep burns, that would require three
or four months' time to heal. It was
a nasty case After some discussion
as to whether the city or the state uf
Washington should pay for the man's
treatment, the matter was refened to
the city solicitor, to turn in a report
next Thursday evening.
After hearing reports from the various committees on minor matters, the
council adjourned until Thins lay
An adjourned meeting of t' e citv
council wus held in the council
chambers last ovcning, nil the members being present except Aid.

the school board to bring in a financial report, and also fo have the
same printed.
A few supplementary accounts
were passed and ordered paid.
On motion it was decided to pay
Geo. Taylor $4 per pole for eight
telephone poles.
City Solicitor Sutton reported
that tbe city was not liadle for tbe
bill of Mr. Watson as special policeman, as the man had not taken the
oath as an officer. The council was
of the opinion that Mr. Watson had
worked in good faith, and a resolution was passed that he be paid as
a watchman. The cily solicitor reported in favor of the payment of
Dr. Kingston's bill of 810 for service
as health officer. The bill was
ordered paid.
In the matter of the man from
Laurier, who was placed in the hospital last week, the city solicitor
reported that tbe city was not liable,
tbe man should not bave been allowed to come to the city. It wis a
case that the State of Washington
should look after. On motion, the
council refused to assume any responsibility in the matter, but decided to notify the attorney-general,
and pledged itself to render any
assistance possible lo Dr. Kingston,
in collecting his account already
incurred against the patient.
Tbe Spokane avenue closing bylaw  was reconsidered  and finally
The old Columbia jail building
was sold to Chas. Bickerton for 815
cish and three monthly payments

Wm. Spier Presented With a
Silver Service by His
Silvery Speeches and an Evening of Good Cheer
A pleasant social event took place
in the Yale parlors last nigbt when
about thirty citizens assembled there
and presented Mr. Wm. Spier, who
was recently promoted from manager
of the Grand Forks branch of the
Eastern Townships Bank to Inspector of Western Branches, with headquarters at Winnipeg, was presented
with a beautiful silver service consisting of tray, fish knives and forks,
teapot, sugar bowl aud cream jug.
Mr. David Whiteside acted as
chairman of the evening, and made
the presentation speech, to which
Mr. Spier made suitable response.
Speeches were made by nearly
everyone of the thirty citizens who
were in attendance, the tenor of his
remarks being much of the same
strain—that they regretted to learn
of Mr. Spier's departure fiom the
city, but they all rejoiced at his
deserved promotion, beleiving him
to he too big a man for the position
he has held here.
After the speech making the balance of the evening was taken up
witb music, Mr. A. B. W. Hodges
presiding at the piano with his
usual artistic-ability. Mr. George
Chappie made the hit ofthe evening
by saying tbat the only songs he
were choruses. The truth of this
assertion was demonstrated by his
subsequent actions.
Mr. Spier left for Winnipeg this
morning. Although it is expected
that that city is to be his permanent
headquarters, be will return to this
city shortly and remain here for
•ome time. His family will reside
here for the present at least.

To The Electors
of the
City of Grand Forks
While the Conservatives in the
Federal House accuse the govern
ment of extravagance, they are
ceaseless in their attempts to influence the government to build
something that will be a benefit to
some particular constituency. Has
it ever occurred lo any person that
there ie one instance which stands
i u alone where thc Conservativees
asked for an amount to be struck
out of the estimates? Ninety-nine
per cent of the estimates are allowed
to go without challenge by tbe party
which charges extravagance, but
fails to npply the remedy at the
proper time. For every case wnhih
objection is made lo ^expenditure,
the Conservatives have made proposals to increase thc expenditure of
the country to ten times as much.
There have been four bye-elections within ns many weeks and in
each ense the Liberal bus been elected by a large majority. In one case
by acclamation and in another the

found to Imve absolutely no influence with the electors.

known country, into n great flourishing and prosperous nation, vigor-
us, nlcrt, strong, self reliant. When
the time arrives Sir Wilfrid and his
followers will present themselves
before the electotate of Canada, confident that the people, the intelligent
electors, will recognize their worth,
their efforts for the benefit of the
Dominion, nnd the suecesi with
which Providence hns crowned those
olforts. They will be a united band

Aid. Woodland
After the council meeting Monday
last Aid. Wi odland made a malicious
insinuation to the effect that The
Sun's contract in regard to printing
the voters' lists bad not been fulfilled. The charge was evidently
made with the intention of injuiing
the publisher's business reputation.
To the people with whom we bave
done business during the past seven
yean a simple denial would have
been sufficient; but as such slanders
always travel very swiftly to the
enemy's camp, where they are magnified and find ready believers, we
have deemed it advisable to make
the following affidavit:

British Columbia, Countv of   Yale.

Forks, in the province of British Columbia, do solemnly declare:

dred copies of the Voters' List for the

3. That in pursuance of said in*
structions I did on the fourth day of
January, A. D. 1908, deliver tj Mr.
J. A. McCalluin ten copies of the

Mr. A. K. Savage, chief of police for
the snid city, and  eighty-eight   copies
of the same to the said J. A. McCallum, city clerk of the said e.ty of
(irand Forks.
And I make this solemn declaration
conscientiously believing the same to

Opie Reid, the famous author and
humorist, will give an entertainment
at the Grand Forks opera house on
Tnesdav evening, Jan. 14, under the
nuspicesof the Grand Forks 20,00 I
C ub. If the man who can mak ■
other people laugh is a blessing to
I uraanity, there ought to be a statue
erected to Opie Reid. There are few
living American story tellers who can
produce for us more perfectly than
Mr. Reid does, the speech, manners,
and the whole social atmosphere of the
rural South and the rural West. His
latest lecture, "First One Thing and
Then Another," is a sparkling gem of
humor and wit, not unmixed with
pathos. Sstictly speaking, it is not a
lecture at all, but an informal heart-
to-heart talk that brings the speaker
into close intimacy with his heaiers
and keeps them roaring with laughter
or brushing away tears throughout tl e
evening. On the platform as in his
written works, Mr. Reid shines with
a brillancy all his own. Everywhere
he is received with enthusiasm. The
indescribable witchery of his words,
the charm of his voice and manner,
the influence of his personality, combine to weave the magic spell that
holds his audiences enthralled. He
put" into graphic and picturesque
language much that we, as Americans,
have felt, but only dimly comprehend.
Reminiscence, criticism, anedote, historic fact, and literary estimate are
blended so delightfully that it is difficult to tell which presents the greatest attractions for those who hear him.
The splendid genius of the man shines
forth in everything he says. The
humor is all pervasive, yet one sees
that the lectuaer's purpose is serious.
He shows himself to be a wonderful
deleauator of character, and an artist
in the interpretation ot hisown work.
Secure your seats early as Mr. Read
is sure to draw a crowded liouss.
