New City Government Met
for Organization Pur-
Mayor's Address and Appointment of Standing
The first meeting of the 1909 city
council was held in tbe council
chambers on Monday evening,
Mayor Fripp and Aid. Davis, Lequime, Manly, McCallum, Sheads
and Whiteside being present. The
only business transacted was the
appointment of the standing com,
mittees. Some difficulty was ex
perienced in securing a chairman
for the water and light committee,
as none of the appointees to that
committee were anxioue to assume
tbe responsibility of the position.
In bis inaugural address tbe
mayor said the citizens were to be
congratulated on having secured
such an able aldermanic board of
. representative business men. He
also felt that the privilege of presid
ing ovei the deliberations of such
an able body of men waB a great
honor. He felt certain that tbe
council would transact the business
of the city and deal with all new
conditions that might arise during
the year in an intelligent nni business-like manner. He favored encouraging new enterprises. He de
sired to make some changes in the
police department, in order to curtail its expenses. He would do
what he could to make Grand Forks
a good, healthy, moral town. He
did not believe in a wide-open
policy, as the city was fast becom
ing a pjace of homes. In order to
induce the citizens to take more interest in civic affairs, he thought it
would be wise to try a plan that is
now being extensively adopted in
the east, namely.settirig apart a night
towards the close of each term, at
which the ratepayers are invited to
the meeting, for the purpose of receiving a report of the council's
stewardship, and at which civic affairs of interest are discussed among
the ratepayers and their representatives.
Mayor Fripp announced the following standing committees:
Finance—Manly, Whiteside and
Water and Light—McCallum,
Manly and Whiteside.
Board of Works—Sheads, Lequime and Davis.
Health and Relief— Davis, Whiteside and Lequime.
Cemetery—Lequime, McCallum
and Sheads.
After the council adjourned the
various committees met and appointed the following chairmen:
Water and Light—Manly.
Board of Works—Sheads.
Health and Relief—Lequime.
New Rules
The railway commission has
issued a circular which is of interest
to all parties having cases before it.
It  points  out  that in the past on
hearing applications it was shown
that many of the parties having
cases before it were not notified to
be in attendance. The board now
lays down the rule that no application will be received by the commission unless there is proof of service
on all interests concerned. In the
event of orders being consented to,
proof of Buch consent must be adduced. Not only must notice be
given, but plans have to be furnished.
Old Age Annuities
The Sun has received from Ottawa a booklet describing the government's system of old age annuities.
The salient features of the scheme
are substantially aB follows:
A man beginning at 20 years of
age, and paying 25 cents a week until be is 60 may provide an annuity
(or income) for the remainder of hia
life of 8129.91.
A man beginning at 25 and paying 25 cents a week until he is 60,
A man beginning at 30, and paying 25 cents a week until he iB 60,
will receive $74.73 at 60.
A man beginning at 35, and paying 2a sents a week until he is 60,
will receive #57.90 at 60.
A man beginning at 20, with a
cash payment of $10, paying 25
cents a week, and adding $10 every
live years until he is 60, will receive
an annuity of $151.96 at 60.
For a boy of 15, a payment of
$500 will secure him at 55, and for
the remainder of his life, an annuity
of $220.60, or at 60 of 8323 50. And
the suine amount at the sam'e age
would secure a girl an annuity at
55 of $202.95, or at 60 of 8289.05.
The annuities will be paid in
equal quarterly instalments, the first
payment to be made when the age
specified is attained; and should the
annuitant die before the first instalment of annuity becomes due, payments received will be returned with
3 per cent compound interest added.
In case of death before 60, all payments made, with 3 per cent compound interest, will be returned to
the heirs.
Any further information desired
may be secured on enquiry of S. T.
Bastedo, superintendent of Canadian
government annuities, Ottawa.
Wenatehee to Oroville
It is announced tnat the Great
Northern railway, early in the coming spring, will undertake the work
of building a line from the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway
east of tha Cascades, south through
the Okanogan river valley to Wenatehee, Wash., on the main line,
a distance of about 100 miles. The
final surveys have been approved,
and already one-third of the right of
way has been acquired. The northern junction point will be at Oroville, a station in the state of Washington a few miles south of the international boundary. It will not
only open up a rich ranching and
fruit country, but will provide an alternative route for through east and
westbound freight, thus relieving
the congestion of traffic over the
heavier grades across the Cascade
range. The vslley has long been
famed for fruit growing and for its
vast horse and cattle ranges.
J. L. Manly Realizes Nearly
$500 an Acre for His
Also Disposes of 100 Acres
of Unimproved Fruit
The deal which has been pending
for some time for the sale of Joseph
L. Manly's ten-acre orchard and ten
acres of unimproved land has been
closed, Mr. Manly disposing of his
property to Eugene Herrick, form
erly of Edmonton, Alta., but who
last year rented a ten-acre tract on
the Covert estate. The price paid
was $9000, Mr. Manly receiving a
ranch near Edmonton as part payment. Although this figure may
Beem high to Borne people, it is generally conceded that Mr. Herrick
haB secured a bargain, as the orchard is a good revenue producer.
Mr. Manly has also sold hiB ranch
of 100 acres of unimproved to
Greenwood parties for $4500.
Mr. Manly has not yet definitely
arranged bis future plans, but he
will continue his residenee in the
valley until next spring, when he
and his family will probably remove
to their Alberta ranch.
greater security of title in connection with timber lands. The mill-
owners feel that the provincial government should go a step further
by guaranteeing licenses for a
period of more than twenty-one
years. They realize that the present government does not contemplate any policy of confiscation after
the expiration of the twenty-one
years period, but they think that
future administrations might adopt
a vaBtly different policy.
His honor Judge Brown, of Greenwood, presided at a session of the
county court in this city yesterday.
The only case on the docket was
that of L. A. Snyder against the
Columbia & Western Railway com-
pauy for $150, the value of a horse
killed by defendant. D. Whiteside
appeared for plaintiff, and J. D.
Spence for defendant company. The
case was stood over until the next
term of court.
The applications of A. C. Sutton,
official administrator, in the •natter
of the estates of Charli s Johnson
and John Anderson were granted.
The following applications for
naturalization were granted: Geo.
D. Miller, Louis Miller, Thomas
Ross, Giovanatte Edoards, Delia
Donna Gio Batta, Musotte Gughe-
luso, Menotti Melitini, Pietro Muz-
The next chambers will be held
on February 25th.

Work for the Police
The police have had a busy time
during the past few days. Early in
the week a well known young man
about town was lodged in the provincial jail, after having played
pranks that led people to seriously
doubt his mental balance. He has
since been released. On Wednesday
the chief was notified that a serious crime had been attempted at a
house in the North addition. He
is still hunting for the offender, but
the man has evidently left the city.

Now is the time when the doctor
gets busy and the patent medicine
manufacturers reap the harvest, unless great care is taken to dress
warmly and keep the feet dry. This
is the advice of an old eminent authority, who says that rheumatism
and kidney trouble weather is here,
and also tells what to do in case of
an attack.
Get from any good prescription
pharmacy one-half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion, one ounce Compound Kargon, three ounces Com
pound Syrup Sarsaparilla. Mix by
haking in a bottle and take a teaspoonful after meals and at bedtime.
Just try this simple home-made
mixture at the first sign of rheumatism, or if your back aches or you
feel lhat the kidneys are not acting
Just right. This is said to be a
splendid kidney regulator, and almost certain remedy for all forms of
rheumatism, which is caused by
uric acid in tha blood, which the
kidneys fail to filter out. Any one
can easily prepare this at home and
at small cost.
Druggists in this town and vicinity, when shown the prescription,
stated that they can either supply
these ingredients, or, if your readers
prefer, they will compound the mixture for them.
