Semi-Weekly—$1.00 Per Year In Advance
Wall Bros. & Creelman Will
Build the Fourth Street
•Traffic Bridge
To Be Completed by the End
of Next March—Council
Proceedings
The mayor and all the ddennen
were present at last night's meeting
of the city council.
A communication from H. Bovee,
secretary of the B. C. League of Municipalities, inquiring whether or
not the Grand Forks city government desired to take any part in
framing the new laws affecting municipalities, to be brought to the attention of the legislature at its next
session, was referred to the city solicitor and the city clerk.
A communication from thc property ownere in the vicinity of the
new skating rink gave their consent
to the passage of a by-law closing a
portion of Spokane avenue. Tbe
communication was received, and
notice given of the introduction of a
by-law to that effect.
The chairman of tbe finance committee reported that the committee
had held a meeting list Friday
night, and had decided tbat the
council could not afford to make any
further grants to the Grand Forks
hand at present, as all the committees, with the exception of the water
and light, bad overdrawn their estimates. He also stated that in the
event the Fourth street bridge debentures were not sold by tbe time the
money was required, the Eastern
Townships bank waa willing to advance 75 per cent on them. Manager Spier had asked for an option
on the debentures at 90 cents until
the first of the year.
On motion, (be matter of the sale
of the debentures was left in the
hands of the finance committee,
with the understanding that all the
banks were to be given an opportunity to hid for them. The recommendation of the committee in reference to a grant to the band was
accepted.
The chairman of the board* of
works reported that everything was
running smoothly at present.
The chairman of the water and
light committee recommended the
placing of a street light on Third
street, near the river, and the recommendation was accepted by the
council. He also reported that the
B. C. Telephone company had their
wires strung on 63 of the city's electric light poles, and that the city
had wire strung on 36 poles of the
telephone company. In view of
this disparity in numbers of poles,
he thought that the telephone company shonld be requested to give the
city free phone service.
On motion of Aid. Cooper and
Lequime, tbe council decided to
make a request of the telephone
company for free phone service.
Aid. Clements stated that readings
of the electric power used by the
oity had recently been made at 8
o'clock in the afternoon, and it had
been ascertained that the load was
26 horsepower heavier at 5 o'clock
than at 8. He thought that some
of the manufacturing companies
were using the power after it was required for lighting purposes. He
had instructed the city electrician to
take readings at thc power house
■iome evening. The city should
bave a self-recording instrument that
.vould record the load automatically
at all times. Such an instrument
would cost $280.
The following bills were ordered
paid:
M. J. Quinliven $ 93.66
A. E. Smith k Co    57.50
A. E. Savage     30.00
Geo. E. Massie     35.00

Aid. Spraggett stated that the city
team had earned tllO, after deducting operating expenses, for the month
of November.
On motion of Aid. Clements, the
health and relief committee was instructed to interview Dr. Kingston
and try lo obtain better terms for
city patients in the Grand Forks hospital, in consideration of the fact that
that institution is furnished free water
and light.
Aid. Cooper desired to know, simply to satisfy his own curiosity, if
there was any truth in the report circulated about town that a Hindoo had
been cremated in the old butcher shop
in the West end last Saturday. If
not true, the council should take
steps to prevent such stories gaining
currency. Aid. Spraggett said there
was absolutely no truth to the story.
He had visited the building twice on
the day mentioned. As far as he
knew there had only been one Hindoo
cremated in the province, and that
ceremony had occurred at Vancouver.
The Hindoos up the North Fork were
a thrifty lot. Those now in the city
would stay as long as allowed to
go from house to house asking for
alms. The matter was referred to the
police commissioners.
The tenders for the construction of
the Fourth street trallic bridge were
then opened. The following bids,
being accompanied by certified cheques
for 5 per cent of their respective
amounts, were received:
Wall Bros, k Creehiian $6,983
Robert Gaw   7,975
On motion of Aid. Lequime and
Spraggett, the tender of Wall Bros, ill
Creehiian was accepted, and the contract was awarded to that linn.
On motion, tho city solicitor was
instructed to draw up a contract, and
the mayor and city clerk were authorized to sign the same on the part
of the city,
On motion of Aid. Lequime and
Cooper, it was decided to hold a spec-
cial meeting Thursday evening to consider the terms of the contract.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Lequime, the mayor was instructed to
appoint a committee of three to assist
the solicitor to draw up the contract.

Preliminary  Hearing of Rovello Postponed for One
Week
Grand Forks Citizen Secures
a Patent for a Useful
Article
The preliminary hearing of Sam
Rovello, under arrest in this city on a
charge of having been an accomplice
of Frank Cedio in the Niagara dynamite outrage, came up before Judge
Cochrane last Friday. The case was
remanded for one week. It is hoped
that Cedio has been apprehended
when the case next conies up.
F. E. Cooper, the undertaker, last
Friday received word from Ottawa
that he had been granted a Canadian
patent for an air-tight valve attachment for metallic lined caskets. The
object of the invention is the extraction of air from caskets after they
have been sealed. . Mr. Cooper has
already received many offers for his
patent. There are no similar devices
on the market.
R. A. Gordon, left yesterday
for Spokane, from where be will go
Via the Northern Pacific to New
York and thence across the blue to
England. Mr, Gordon left the old
country seventeen years ago, and he
expects to see many changes in the
haunts of other days. He will be
gone about seven months.
James H. McNeil, senior member
of the firm of McNeil k Henniger, of
this city, and Miss Sadie J. 'fisher, of
Republic, were united in marriage in
the latter city last Friday, Rev. Mr.
Callahan performing the ceremony.
Mr. and Mrs. McNeil have taken up
their residence in this eity, and are
receiving the congratulations of their
many friends.
Mr. T. A. L. Smith, of Hornby
Island, is visiting friends and attending to business matters in the city for
few days. Mr. Smith is one of
the pioneers of Grand Forks, having
resided iu the West end for a number
ef years prior to his falling heir to a
fortune. He expresses himself as wel
pleased wi'h his new home on the
coast.
tertainment is unlike tbe entertainment of any other magician, hypnotist or mind reader in that in one
evening he performs the most difficult, elaborate and complicated feats
of each. Everything is novel from
begitiing to ending, embraces much
that is weird, incomprehensible and
marvelous to behold. His entire entertainment is presented independent of the usual stage artifices, such
as especially designed dress suits,
confederates in the audience or mechanical trap doors and contrivances
in the stage, and yet, in his magical
performance, they are all tricks in
which he -nakes you believe you see
things you do not, and keeps you
from seeing things you should not.
The mysteries and wonders of the-
osophy and spirtualism which Mr-
McEwen has spent years investigating, are brought home to each audience which witnesses his entertainment. His hypnotic demonstrations
arc genuine, scientifically interesting
and highly amusing.
Supported by a company including several well known vaudeville
acts, the Great McEwen comes to
Grand De'c. 14.
IDAHO MINE SOLD
Nelson and Bruce th.s Week.
The coming engagement of Messrs
Harold Nelson and Clifford Lane
Bruce and their supporting company
is welcome news to the theatre-goers
of Grand Forks. This year the
company is by far the most talented,
and will present here for the first
time an elaborate and costumed
production, "A Soldier of Fortune.':
Sir Rupert, around whose ad'-en.
tures the play is woven, the gay.
careless, fearless freelance, and upholder of the poor and opressed, is
a very lifelike character in Mr. Nelson's hands.
On Saturday night that famous
historic drama, "The "Virginian,"
with Mr. Bruce in the title role,
will be played. This is a beautiful
love story of the cowboy country,
which is filled with dramatic action.
With the picturesque costume of the
cowboy as a background, the audi
ence can almost feel the breezy atmosphere of the West coming over
the footlights. Mr. Bruce, possessing, as he does, good looks and n
fine physique, is particularly adapted to this style of play.

The following is the report of the
Grand Forks public school for the
month of November, as compiled by
Principal May:
The attendance at the public school
is still increasing, thc enrollment for
the month of NoAember being six
greater than for October, and 38
greater than that for November, 1905.
The percentage of regularity is,how-
ever, by no means what it should be,
and parents who foolishly keep their
children home for none but imaginary
leasons aie much to blame. They are
a source of great annoyance t6 the
teachers by chucking the advancement
of the class und the progress of thi
sell! ol. Division 3, Miss Sinclair, and
Division 5, Miss Olding, are the only
classes which give a percentage of
legularity greater than 90.

A Well Known Rossland Property Acquired by Strong
Company
At One Time Its Owners Could
Have Got a Million Dollars
for It
The Idaho mine on Monte Crista
mountain has been sold. The deal
has been consummated and the purchaser is the Consolidated Mining k
Smelting company, limited, owners of
the Centre Star, War Eagle, Iron
Mask, and other mines in Rossland
camp, the St. Eugene mine at Moyie,
and the smelter at Trail. The purchase price has not lieen given out but
it is known to have been a large on".
It is understood that the vendors
have accepted the greater portion of
the payment in the stock of the Consolidated company. The owners were
Oliver Durant, of Culpepper, Virginia, and A. H. Tarbet, of Butte, Montana. The negotiations for the purchase of the Iuaho have been in progress for a year, and the papers in
connection with the transfer were formally signed lost week.
The Idaho was one of the first locations made in the camp, having
been staked when the Le Roi, Centre
Star, War Eagle and Iron Mask were
staked. It has extra-lateral rights,
which permits development of a vein
which apexes upon it outside of its
side lines, while the claims taken up
at present are confined to within the
vertical planes bounding a claim of
1500 feet square. There is no development work done on the Idaho, but
Centre Star levels down to a depth
of about 1500 feet, run right up to
the west end of the Idaho, so that its
development should be both economical and rapid. The surface assays, it
is said, were even better than they
were on the Centre Star, and tliere is
no doubt that the company has made
valuable addition to its already
large ahd valuable holdings in Ross-
camp. The fact that the main Le
Roi-Centre Star have amounted to
•■$24,000,000 is important. The inference from these facts is tbat the
ledge of the Idaho is equally as rich
and as productive as it is in the Centre Star and that, therefore, large
■uantities of ore of a good grade will
be found in the Idaho.

Commenting on the new Canadian
customs tariff introduced in the Dominion house by Finance Minister
Fielding, the Buffalo Commercial editorially says: "So far as the Can
adian tariff affects American interests
it may ho said to 'As you like it' to
the extent of a ten per cent discount.
It is a little early yet to determiue
how far this opinion is likely to operate in creating sentiment in this country in favor of a reciprocity treaty
with Canada." The Buffalo Evening
Times srys: "The new customs tariff
measure new before the Dominion
parliament provides for a British preferential tariff' tending to increase
trade with the motherland, which is
the natural thing for the Canadians
to do. The intermediate rates are
about ten per cent less than the general tariff Thus, the duty is left
open for the United States to establish closer trade relations with Canada, an opportunity which should he
taken advantage of."

Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, the following simple formula, the ingredients of
which ean be obtained of any good
prescription druggist at small cost, i.s
all that will be required: Virgin Oil of
Pine (Puee), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspoonful doses every'four hours. Thede
sired results cannot bo obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce viuls, which drU;
gists buy for dispensing. Each vial
securely sealed in a round wooden case
which protects the Oil from exposure
to light. Around the wooden case is
an engaged wrapper with the name—
"Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. There are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

An Ottawa dispatch says the new
tariff includes important changes in
the interests of the mining industry.
Blast furnaces for smelting copper
and nickel,blast furnaces slag trucks,
converting apparatus for metallurgical purposes and high class steel
from England are placed on rhe free
list. The duty on giant powder is
reduced from 3 to 2J cents per
pound. These include the greuter
pari of the changes asked for by the
Kootenay-Boundary smelting men.
A number of articles of mining machinery now manufactured in Canada have been taken off the free
list. It will be some days before all
the numerous changes can be acur-
atcly slimmed up.

portions of those stories that made
Brete Harte so famous. It combines
rich and sparkling comedy with
pathos of the highest order in such
