Grand Forks, B. C, Friday. November 6, 1908.
Health Officer Reports the
General Health of the
City as Good

The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chambers Monday evening,
Mayor Fripp and Aid. Clark, Miller,
McCallum, Rutherford and Woodland being present.
A letter faom the superintendent
of the C. P. R., in reply to the council's complaint that water had been
wiiBted at the tank at the station,
stated that steps would be taken to
prevent a recurrence of the same.
The Are chief submitted a report
of his trip to the firemen's convention in New Westminster. There

valuable information of modern
methods of fighting lires had been
gained.   Filed.
The chief of police reported having collected §96 road tax, making
a total of $176 turned in to date;
al« t 817 dog taxes, total 876.  Filed.
A communication from T. P.
O'Farrell, Rossland', stated that he
had placed all the information contained in the city oflice on the new
city map. The members of the
council appeared to think otherwise, and on motion a resolution was
adopted instructing the clerk to
write to Mr. O'Farrell and request
hiin io come to the city and complete the map.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that the
water main across the river had
been completed, and that the department was in good shape for thc coming winter. The committee recommended that the course of the water
main near the old power house-be
straightened at a cost of about 825.
The report was adopted.
The chairman of the board of
works reported that the board had
given thc Kettle Valley line permission to repair its depot to the extent of 8500, and that some new
sidewalks had been built during the
past month, and the Bridge street
bridge had been repaired. The committee recommended that the council authorize some repairs to ihe lire
hall. The matter was left to the
discretion of the board.
The chairman of the health and
relief committee reported that the
committee had given 8125 to Mr.
Fisher, an indigent affected with
tuberculosis, in order to enable him
to go to a sanitarium in Denver,
The city solicitor was present at
the meeting iu antieipation of another attempt being made by the
tho property owner near Alexander
avenue to have the Kettle Valley
line siding in that vicinity moved
farther west, but as none of the interested parties showed up. the matter was laid over till the next meeting, the members ofthe council deciding to make a personal inspection
of the ground at 8:30 this  morniug.
To the Electors of Yale-
Cariboo From an Independent
Appeals Not to Politica1 Prejudices, but to Common
Aid. McCallum gave notice that at
tho next meeting of the council he
would introduce an amendment to
the victualers' license by-law.
Health Ollicer Kingston .made a
verbal report to the council. The
"health of the city, for this season of
the year, he said, was good. No
new cases of typhoid had developed
during the past month, and all the
patients now in the hospital suffering from that disease were convalescent. The doctor emphasized the
need of an ambulance in tbe city.
The vehicle would cost about $650
at the factory. Of this amount the
Granby company would contribute
one-half, and he himself agreed to' To the Electors of the Federal Con-
donate 8100. The railway com- j stituency of Yale-Cariboo: ,

and judgment. The solemn duty of
recording your vote is also your
business, the serious business of the
country—our Canada—and as true
patriots it is your privilege and duty
to exercise your noblest faculties in
making a seleetion for your country's good. On the floor of the
house Mr. Duncan J'.oss has shown
by his speeches that he is argumentative and critical; he uses logical
methods, his force of keen reasoning
develops the argument and establishes the truth and gains for him the
respect and approval of brainy men.
His speeches show knowledg of history, intimacy with constitutional
law, and comprehension of material
facts, as evidences of his masterly
discourse during the debates on the
Japanese question. (See pamphlets
containing speech.)
Duncan Ross fights for methods
and principles, which underlie the
laws of Canada, both natioual and
international. He has a wide vision
and grasps large questions' comprehensively. He will be heard in thc
Dominion, his mental force will give
him rank amongst Canad an statesmen, and he has only to get a fair
chance when his strength will be
made manifest.
Of him this constituency may well
be, and is, proud; analytical and enquiring, constructive and energetic,
he can create, shape and direct the
government expenditures and appropriations to the right places and the
most needful works. Now, electors,
wc need such a man to represent us;
he is a workman who needeth not
be ashamed. We need an advocate
to speak and act for the great west,
a Canadian who will strive to have
some honorable share in shaping
the future policy of this great Dominion and looking well to the interests of this portion of her western
I invite you, gentlemen, calmly
and with deliberation to ask your-,
selves which of the two candidates
now seeking your support has the
most experience, which is the better
fitted, which the stronger influence

the wider and most hopeful outlook, and, in conclusion, with best
wishes personally to both as gentlemen, but with a candid desire for
the best possible representation of
Yale-Cariboo in the Canadian house
of commons, I ask you to vote independently, and for your interests
for Duncan Koss. I remain, yours

"If the British government is wise
in carrying out its plan to send the
Hindus to Honduras, it will take no
action to the protest of certain Victoria Hindus, as you call all tbe East
Idians, nor even reply to the same
for the present, for mark my word,
before very long the very men who
protested, as well as their followers,
will be not only willing but clamoring to go."
Such is the statement of an educated Hindu who is thoroughly in
touch with the needs, doing and desires of his countrymen, but who for
obvious reasons does not wisn his
identity disclosed to his lellows.
Asked for a reason of his belief, tho
speaker went on:
"The reason thc protest was made
ie that my countrymen are as yet
unfamiliar with the country of Honduras, and they never care to go to
a new place in any ■ large number
until some of their brethren have
gone before, spied out the land and
sent back a report Concerning its attractiveness. Tbey know nothing
whatever of the people, the climate,
the soil, the prosperity, the wages,
or the plentifuhiL'ss or scarcity of
work in Honduras, and they will not
go willingly until they do. You may
say, truthfully enough, that they
have been or will be carefully informed as to all these things, and
that there is no reason in their
adopting such a rule. Nevertheless,
it is a fact that they never proceed
otherwise than in this manner. You
know the Hindus are just like sheep
and what one does the rest will do.
It was so in their coming to Canada.
Those who came first wrote baek
and said that wages were high—you
know they make only a few cents a
day in India, and SI.OO or 82 a day
seems like a.fortune to them—and
that work wus plentiful, which wns
a fact at that particular time, so tbe
'others hastened here in quantities of
1500 and upwind at 11 shipload,
When things went wrung and want
begun to be known among the men,
this also was, of course, written
home In relatives there, and you
have noticed 11 cessation of arriving
Hindus fur quite a time. It is always so. Ask a Hindu, through an
! interpreter, why he is going tou cer-
; tain place, and in many, perhaps
most cases, the only answer be will
'give you will be, 'Others are going.'
"The climate of Honduras is
; warm, like that of India, and cannot
I fail to please my countrymen; and
'since there is said to be a demand
for labor tliere, I sec no reason why
a Hindu should not he seen as infrequently in British Columbia as in
I Alaska.
"It hns been freely  ventured   by
1 some tbat the real reason behind the
protest, which, you will remember,
included tbe statement that if  the

Soru e of our Tory friends appear to
doubt the authenticity of a statement
contained in a communication published iu The Sua a couple of weeks
ago to the effect that Mr. Burrell is
an employer of Hindus. It is a well
known fact that Mr. Burrell is the
principal owner of the Riverside nurseries, Mid we have frequently seen a
swarm ot Hindus at work on this
property. We also know of one white
man who was discharged to make
room for some of the dark-shinned adventurers. The communication would
not have appeared in these in these
columns had we been in doubt concerning the truth of the statement.
The only plea the Conservatives are
now offering the electors why Martin
Burrell should be elected is a strong
opposition at Ottawa. This is the
silliest argument that could be brought
furUi. The opposition* in the house
during the last session was weak, numerically and intellectually; but it
was strung enough to obstruct legislation, retuid the progress of the country, and prevent the civil servants
si'om drawing their salaries for months
uftei they had earned them.
A strong opposition at Ottawa
(grantiing that Martin Burrell would
iLdtl strength to the opposition) and
a weak representation for Yale-Cariboo, will nut hynotize the electors of
this district into voting the Tory
ticket. Mr. Burrell, on the opposition
benches, might talk himself hoarse
without accomplishing anything for
his constituency.
Duncan Koss, during his four years
iii the house, was heard from in tho
right way. Unaided he broke up the
railway monopoly in the southern part
ut' the province,secured appropriations'
fur three publio buildings, and did a
number ni other praiseworthy acts
thnl. nie now mul I els of record,
Mr. Burrell will   lie compelled   to
kitlsomitie his Hindus if he  is sincere
in his professions of a "white Cuiiudu.
Every citizen loyal to the best Interests of Grand Forks will vote for
Duncan Boss next Thursday.
Yale-Cariboo will not endorse the

Big Opera Company Coming
After tliu deluge of dramatic shows
and concert companies that have been
in Grand Forks during tlm past year,

a real opera billed to appear; and nil
the inure bo because it's nothing less
than the San Francisco* Opera eompany. Grand Forks is getting into
metropolitan lines when suuh attrae
tions as this come our way. Hut we
understand it was only hy offering big
inducements in the nature of a substantial guarantee that ".Mr. Mealy,
the manager of this company, was induced to play the Boundary towns.
The names of such players as Teddy
Wfcjbb, Mabel Day, Eugene Werner,
Ruby Norton, Amy Leicester, J. Russell Powell and others of the principals in the cast is sufficient assuurance
that it is o good coinpany, for if there
*vere no others in the company it
would be a good show. However,
there are others—thirty-four more of
them—und they are all reported good
operatic artists This i.s the old famous Tivoli opera company of Han
Francisco traveling under a new name.
After the earthquake had devastated
them of a home in Frisco, Mr. Mealy
took his company on the road, and for
two and a half years has met with
nothing but success, both artistically
and financially,

they wished to go back to India, was; tried it sny the results tire simply
that they wished the people of India ' surprising, the relief being   effected
to know that Great Britain was
sending its subjects home because
they were not desired in other sections of its domain, and thus foment
rebellious feeling among the other
Hindus in India. This is far from
the truth. The men who sent the
telegram of protest to the imperial
government are Sikhs, and there are
no more loyal people in the British
empire than they. It may be that
the deportation of East Indians to
their homes in India might cause
bad feelings among the natives there,
but I am satisfied that phase of the
question had nothing to do with the
message of the Sikhs.
"I rather think the Dominion government had in mind the idea that I
have been explaining in sending
along the two natives with Special
Agent Harkin, realizing that their
report would materially aid in bringing success lo the project, and certainly there was wise foreshight
shown in so handling the question."
