I! COUNCIL MEETING
Last Regular Session of Present Board Was Held
Last Night
Lack of Time Prevents Salary
Question Being Submitted
to the People
The last regular meeting of the
present city council was held in the
council chamber last night, Mayor
Hutton, Aid. Clements, Cooper,
Lequime, McDonald and Spraggett
being in attendance.
The usual batch of monthly accounts were ordered paid.
Aid. Cooper, chairman of the
finance committee, reported that Mr.
Spier had nuked for 30 days further
time in which to, consider the purchase of the Fourth street bridge debentures. On motion of Aid. Sprag-
gett aud McDonald, the request was
granted.
The other chairmen of committer*
reported "nothing doing" in their
departments.
Returning Officer Kerman asked
tbe council for the use of tbe city
ball ae a polling place on February 2
in the event of a more suitable loca
tion not being available. On motion, tbe request was granted.    '
Mayor Hutton brought up tbe
question of the payment of the bill
of $84.70 still owed by the Citizens',
band for instruments. It was the
opinion of the council that the bill
should be paid, and that the instruments should be the property of the
city. In the discussion on the subject the opinion that each member
of the band should be required to
give a receipt for his instrument prevailed. On motion of Aid. Spraggett and McDonald, a former resolution, respecting this bill was rescinded, and the bill was ordered paid.
Mayor Hutton asked if the question of remunerating'future -nayors
ami aldermen cifulil not be referred
to the ratepayers for u referendum
vote. Public opinion at present, he
said, appear* d to be that tbe members of Ihe present council were
"cheap guys" for working without a
salary.
Aid. ClemcnUi thought that now
was un importune time to get un expression of the people on this subject, and all the other aldermen,
with the exception of Cooper, favored a referendum vote being taken.
Mr. Cooper did not want to interfere
witb the question. If the incoming
council wanted a salary, let them
vote themselves one. The only fair
thing for the present council tu do
was to step out as they had stepped
in. If the salary could he set at some
il.'finite figure, tliere would be some
excuse for meddling with the question.
Aid. McDonald desired to know
the salary list of previous councils'
i-ince amalgamation. The clerk
stated that in 1903 the mayor had
been paid 1300, the aldermen receiving no, remuneration. For the succeeding two terms the salaries pafd
bad amounted to about $1200 per
year.
The citv solicitor stated that in
order to submit the question to  the
people it would first be necessary to
pass a by law covering the points at
issue. As there is not enough time
before the present council retires to
do this, the matter was dropped.
Aid. Cooper brought up the question of purchasing two lots from Mr.
Bently in order to get gravel to make
the fill at the Fourth street bridge,
but the matter was referred to tbe incoming council.
On motion of ild. Spraggett' and
McDonald, a cemetery lot Was donated to Mr. McDonald, he having
given to the city a portion of the
land comprised in the new burying
grounds.
On motion of Aid. Cooper anil
Spraggett, a vote of thanks was tendered the press tor the full and impartial reports of meetings during
the past year.
On motion of Aid. Cooper, the
council decided to meet at 3 o'clock
in the afternoon on January 21st
to sunender their seats to the incoming council.
On motion of Aid. Lequime and
Spraggett, Solicitor Miller was allowed $100 more for expenses on his
trip to the coist in connection witb
the Hartinger case.
The council then adjourned to a
special meeting Thursday evening,
when the annual financial statement
will be received.

When tne Ghost fails to Walk
The vaudeville show to have appeared at the local theatre last Friday
night failed to materialize, and the
house was dark in consequence. A
Winnipeg dispatch says: Stranded
hundreds of miles from homes and
friend? some forty vaudeville performers from various parts of America are
now devising means to get back,
though they haye.no money and owe
heayy hotel .bills. These companies
were sent out to play one night stands
in a number of towns between Winnipeg and the Pacific coast, a new
troupe starting from Winnipeg each
Monday. The first company reached
the Rockies, out the salaries failed to
come. Another arrived at Hegina
and a third at Brandon. Labord and
Ryerson are making Dowers for a liv
ing at Regina, waiting a remittance
from Chicago. Emily Waite, "Queen
of American song," is slinging hash
in a ten cent restaurant. "Musical
Adams, is doing odd jobs around
Brandon. Among the performers ure
some of the bust known vaudeville
artists on the American stage, including J. W. and Mattie Smith, Jim
Dal ton, Lee Haney, the Seymour
children, Dan and Bessie Kelly, mid
others. Jim Dalton says it is the worst
proposition he has ever been against in
his thirty years of stage performances.
Grand Forks Aerie No. 137, Fraternal Order of Eugles, are making
elaborate preparations for a grand
mask ball on the evening of St. Valentine's day, February 14th. The
arrangement committee, consisting of
T.J. Benninger, Leo Mader and Wm.
Hoffman, has already been appointed.
Several prizes will be given for the
best costumes and dancers, and it is
the intention of the aerie to make it
the social event of the season.

for some time, is slowly improving.
Duncan Ross, M.P. for Yale-Cariboo, passed through the city yesterday.
Mr. Ross laughed heartily at the absurd stories publised regarding his entry into provincial politics. That he
was going to resign from the dominion
house was news to him. He had also
heard for the first time that he was
going to run in the Similkameen
He was gratified to know that he was
going to publish a daily paper at
Prince Rupert, but would rather have
the announcement from other than
Tory sources. As a resident of British Columbia he was here to do his
share in ridding the province of the
Conservative-Socialist government,
and assist in securing for it what it
most needs—a live, progressive Liber-
al administration. The reports from
Yale-Cariboo, he stated were very
encouraging. It included eight provincial constituencies with nine mem
bers, Cariboo having to representatives. We were sure of six and might
possibly do better. Geo. R. Naden
was a sure winner in Greenwood;
Smith Curtis in the Similkameen, and
with a candidate like Dr.K.C.Macdon
aid and a new vote of nearly 1000 in
the Okanogon. Price Ellison was sure
to be defeated. Stuart Henderson
would again carry Yale and the two
Cariboos were safe. With a strong
candidate Grand Forks could easily
win out.
Mr. Ross had noticed the old time
tactics of the Conservatives in the
present campaign. No rumor was too
silly and no scandal too absurd for
the purveyors of tory news when defeat was imminent. When the an
nouncemeiil was made that Hon. W
W. B. Mclnnes was to re-enter pro
vidcial politics a campaign of slander
had heen inaugurated. Mr. Mclnnis'
record in the Yukon would stand the
severest test. He had brought order
out of chaos, anil the Yukon, when he
left it, was in a better position from
an administrative point of view than
ever before. The federal authorities,
it was intimated, were responsible for
his re-entii.n re int i the provincial
arena, uhen the fact of the matter
was that the minister of the interior
protested against his resignation bbecause <if the difficulty of securing a
successor who would be so fit to cope
with the arduous tasks in connection
with Yukon affairs. Mr. Mclnnes
loved a good liglit,^ and so, when iuvit
ed by Liberal Leader McDonald to
join in the campaign work, he had
done so, feeling it his duty to give his
services to the province in which he
had always lived and in whoso future
he hod explicit confidence.
Under similar circumstances Mr.
Ross said he would have taken exactly
the same course as Mclnnis had
done. The province was coming to
its own. During the next few years
the tide of immigration would be directed   towards  us.      Capital    would

Appointed as Judge Clement's Successor
Paul lioseinan. Joe Lillydahl and
Mike Francis were seriously burned
at the Granby smelter yesterday at
about 12 o'clock by the blowing out
of one of the converters, Roseman
was badly injured on the breast and
back and about the face and head.and
his condition is regarded as rather
serious. Lillydahl was burned about
the head and face, but his injuries are
not as serious as those of Eoseman.
Francis also received minor burns
about the face and head, but though
painful, it is not thought that any
serious consequences will result.
After the accident Roseman's clothing
caught on fire, aud bis whole body
was one mass of flames, which were
extinguished by turning the hose of
ice-cold water on him. The injured
men are now under the care of Dr.
Kingston in the Grand Forks hospital, and their condition is reported to
be improving this morning.
J. R. Brown, ex-M. P. P., of Greenwood, has been appointed county court
judge of Grand Forks district, to succeed Mr. Justice Clement, of this city,
who was recently elevated to the
supreme court bench. The announcement of the appointment caused no surprise in this section, as it had been
expected for some time. Mr. Brown
is a gentleman of unquestioned integrity and honor, and his selection
meets with general approval in this
section.

R. R. Gilpin, collector of customs
at this port, last week received the
sad news that the death of his father,
Rev. E. Gilpin, D. D., dean of St.
Luke's Cathedral, Halifax, N. S., occurred Saturday, Dec. 29, 1906. Mr.
Gilpin was born in Aylesford, N. S.,
in 1821, the son of Edwin and Eliza
Gilpin, and descended from a long
line of illustrious ancestors. At the
Manor ' of Kentmore, Westmoreland,
England, fourteen geneiations of the
family lived, and there was born, in
1517 Bernard Gilpin, known as the
"Apostle of the North." The manor
was lost in consequence of the loyalty
of the family to Charles I. Rev Edward Gilpin was educated at King's
College, Windsor, N. S., and in 1863
the degree of D. D. was conferred upon him. In 1848 he was appointed
master of Halifax Grammar School.
Later he became master of the High
School, and finally principal of the
Halifax Academy. In 1864 he was
educated as Canon of St. Luke's, and
in 1874 he was made Archdeacon,aniI
later Dean. He was married to Amelia, daughter of the late Justice Hali-
burton, "Sam Slick." Besides Ralph
R. Gilpin, collector of customs in this
city, Mr. E. Gilpin, deputy commissioner of mines, is also a son, and
Mrs. (Rev.) Chas. Croucher, of Yale,
B. C., a daughter of deceased.

MUNRO 8 STEPHENS
A Victoria Conservative dreamed
a strange dream and in his strange
dream stood at the polls. He was
handed a ballot and voted the
straight Socialist ticket. Calling fnr
another ballot he voted again, this
time fnr the Conservative candidate.
A hundred more ballots he promptly
signed in favor of the Conservative
Candidate, when he heard a low
chuckle at his elbow, and turning
beheld the face of McBride wreathed
in smiles behind a tre'ile-coaiing of
war paint. "My good man—my
g iod man," 'altered the premier,
"Am I dreaming, or, or—"No, but
that hoodlum is," snid ano h r vo'ce
as a Liberal stepped forward and
cist the vote that gave his man a
majority of an even ten thousand.
When tbe Conservative awoke from
this horrible nightmare the cold
sweat was so prominent over his
entire anatomy that it required six
Turkish baths, two jas nf mustard,
ten doses ot quinine, o ie Socialist
speech and seven nnd three quarter
bottles of Old Crow to get hitn thoroughly thawed out.

The thermometer registered 11 below zero this morning, but you could

CITY NEWS
At present it looks as if the  com
mittees appointed at the ratepayers
meeting to select a slate of city officials   for  the   forthcoming   year
might he successful so far as the at
dermanio ticket is concerned, but for
the mayoralty a contest appears to
be inevitable.    We understand  the
composition of the slate agreed up* n
to be:    Mayor,    Jeffery   Hammar;
aldermen,   East   ward,   Jul  Davis,
W. S. Miller, l'eter A. Z Par*- nr Ed
Bolton;   West   ward.   II. B  Woodland, Chas. liiown. Ed Tiiv lor or  P.
T. McCullum.     11 is also stated  that
Aid. McDonald  has annum o*d his
intention to offer himself as a candidate for  mayor, and to stay in t e
race  to  the   end.    If this is true,
there is no reason why the nldermnn-
ic bars should not also be let down,
ami  allow us many aspirants to enter    the   race -as   wish    to    run.
By   this we do not mean to imply
tbat we favor a |*oll being taken, because   under   tbe circumstances an
election by acclamation would probably   prove quite   as   satisfactory;
would save the city the expense if
taking the poll, and give the pen* le
a better opportunity to   familiarise
themselves with thc issues at stake
in the provincial elections.   If'a poll
.can be avoided, by all nienns make
it by acclamation; bnt if ih re is  to
be a contest for mayor, give the people a chance to vote for aldermen also.
The aldermanic slate prepared by the
committees doeB not strike us as  being particularly strong—in fact, we
doubt  if,   taken   as  u whole, it will
come up to the standard of Ihe present board.    In view of tbis fact, ii

The Marl Locations
Editor Evening Son:—
As there appears to be some misapprehension in regard to the location of the marl claims recently made
by ine, I wish to state that my main
object is to increase the prosperity of
the city hy increasing the demand for
labor, and bringing a modern building
material to our very door. Without
a doubt my two assays have shown
the ingredients necessary for the
manufacture of Portland cement. Mr.
J. E. Murphy, president of all the
Canadian Portland cement plants, is
a very clever man and a millionaire.
His recent letter to me regaiding the
marl found in this city is highly satisfactory in every particular. I have
also had some correspondence with
the Mericle Brothers, who are the
makers of the machinery required in
tho manufacture of cement, regarding
the cost of a medium plant. Instead
of the find being a detriment to the
city, as has been charged, the object
of myself and my colleagues is to confine our opeiations to the marl bed in
the slough, not interfering with any
private property or buildings. My
claim is a vast deposit of silica, aluminum and lime, with 70 per cent clay
and 1 and J per cent iron. There
are also many other ingredients.

Good Reasons lor Its Success
The majority of catarrh remedies
are useless. But one that does cure
is Catarrhozone. It dears the head
of all mucous discharge. Putrid matter in the nostrils, phlegm in the
throat, and disease germs are complet-
ly swept away. The cause of the disease is destroyed, its results are destroyed, and the system so thoroughly
cleansed of catarrhal poison that cure
is permanent. All types of catarrh,
throat and bronchial trouble, eolds
and coughs are more certainly cured
by Catai'rhnzone than anv thing els*1.

The faults we recognize in others |

The temperature has yet to drop
forty odd degrees below zero before

A wise guy says a wise man never I

From us, because the quality of our goods is such
that friction between tbe cook and the better half of
the household is entirely eliminated. Our prices, too,
are so reasonable that the head of the family pays his
monthly grocery bill at our store "'ith a satisfied

Disappointments should never

A man's real friends are always

A politician in Greenwood fell
headfirst into a snowdrift last Sunday, and his hair melted the snow
so fast that he was barely saved from
being drowned. A late report says
the man was one of the most hotheaded Socialists in that camp.
A perusal of the reading matter

Rheumatism Almost Killed Her
For years Mrs. S. Stahlachmidt, of
Humberstone, Ont, was a martyr to
rheumatism. "I was so stiff and lame
I could hardly walk," she writes.
"An attack striking my limbs made
walking impossible. Friends and
doctors gave prescriptions but I only
got relief from Ferrozone. I took
twelve boxes and gained from the
first. Today I am well, feal stronger,
weigh heavier and look the picture of
health." Whether muscular rheumatism or inflamatory, chronic or otherwise, Ferrrzone does care rheumatism
and sciatica. 50c perJJ box at all
