council chambers last Monday evening, all the members being present.
A communication waB read from
H. C. Hanington, secretary of the
school board, complaining that stock.'
was allowed to run at large over thn
school grounds. The letter was
ordered filed, and the poundmaster
was instructed to do everything possible to abate the nuisance.
The city solicitor, in a communi
cation to the council, stated that the
city's case against the Yale-Columbia Lumber company for damages
done the First street bridge
would come up at the Greenwood
assizes next week, and he asked for
permission to summon witnesses.
The mayor reported that all negotiations for a settlement with; the'
lumber company had apparently
collapsed, and on motion of Aid.
Clark and McArdle the city solicitor
was instructed to go ahead nutb'tne
case and to report progress at a
special meeting of the council"af""3
o'clock this afternoon.
A communication from the W. Q.
T. C. asked the council to endorse
he anti-cigarette legislation now
pending in the federal house. The
request was granted.
The mayor thought it would be a
good thing if the city could dispose
of some of its lots to the Dominion
government for a postoffice site. On
motion, the mayor appointed Aid.
McCalluin and Rutherford as a committee to investigate the subject.
The usual number of monthly
accounts were ordered paid.
, Tbe finance committee recommended that Miss Jda LaBlunc be

The mayor thought it would be
well to hold the matter of salaries in
abeyance until the end of the yeai,
when the financial condition of the
city could be ^better gauged. After
considerable discussion the estimates were approved as presented.
The board of works was instructed
to have the bursted water main in
the North Fork river repaired.
Aid. Woodland was granted leave
to introduce a temporary loan bylaw, which passed its first and second reading, was considered in committee, and then under a suspension
of the rules passed the third reading

I The council then adjourned.
Mr. McArdle's Bucephalus
I -Our esteemed fellow prevaricator,
the Grand Forks correspondent of
Nelson Daily NewB, informs the people pf British Columbia add adjacent
provinces that Alderman James
McArdle's priceless horse is missing,
and that diligent search bas proved
futile in locating his present whereabouts. Mr. McArdle was seen by
tbe home reporter of The Sun last
night. The alderman felt quite indignant over some of the statements made by the News correspondent. He claims that $500 is
too low a valuation of the animal,
and is seriously considering the advisability of offering a $600 reward
for its reward. The fact that he is
lame in three legs makes him worth
this sum as a curio, as horses with
even one game leg are exceedingly
scarce in the Boundary, and bring
fabulous prices for exhibition purposes. Mr. McArdle was inclined
to pooh-pooh the idea that his horse
had gained fame as a racer, but admitted that he might go around the
track in a week, provided some one
tempted him. witb a pailful of oats.
The animal possessed many peculiarities seldom associated witb horseflesh, the most pronounced being
that it could see a tiny speck of outs
a mile distant, but when the pound-
master was around it became stone
blind in both its eyes.. This was ono
of the "tricks" of the horse. While
Mr. McArdle feels his loss keenly,
he consoles himself tho fact that, if
the animal depended on its own legs
for locomotion, it must stiil be
within the city limits.
Correspondence of The Sun.
Ottawa, May 18.—The Liberals of
lanitoba   say  to  the Conservatives,
We will not have lists  prepared  by
the partisan ollieials of your friends,
the Conservative government of   the
province."
The Conservatives of Manitoba reply, "We will not have the lists prepared by the partisan officials of your
friends, the Liberal government of the
Dominion.
If the lists prepared by the province are used, the Liberals of Manitoba will be dissatisfied. If lists prepared by Dominion officials are used,
the Conservatives of Manitoba will be
dissatisfied.
The remedy for the situation, said
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, is to take the
matter entirely out of the hands of
either party, and let the lists be wholly
prepared by the judiciary. This the
government proposes to do, and the
opposition is invited to help to amend
the Dominion elections bill so as enable the government to satisfy both
parties.
W. J. Boche (Conservative member for Marquette, Man.—What we
object to is the singling out of Manitoba for special treatment. You accept the lists of Quebec, Ontaria and
other provinces.    Why not ours?
Sir Wilfrid Laurier—Because yours
are prepared on an entirely different
basis. The basis of the provincial
lists in Ontario and Quebec are the
municipal voters' lists, made up from
the assessment roll; and the assessor
certainly would not omit from the
roll anyone liable to taxation, and
anyone placed on the roll through error would have an interest in having
his name taken off. The municipal
voters lists, therefore, are prepared independent of any party influence, and
they form tho most reliable basis you
can have for the electoral lists of a
provincial or Dominion government.
But the basis of the provincial lists in
Manitoba, as well as British Columbia
—which is similarly dealt with in this
bill—is, not the municipal assessment
roll, but personal registration. Tho
lists are made up by registration
clerks, appointed by the provincial
government, and are .subsequently
revised by county court  judges,  each

horses, which is to be one of the leading events at tke race track next

triet, to enable a number of qualified
voters to gel on the lists. He there
registered 38 duly qualified electors;
but, when the lists were taken to the
attorney-general's office, those names
were contemptuously torn out of the
lists. It is true their registration was
illegal, iiccoi'diiig to the law of Manitoba but it was only in accord with
natural justice that they should have
been allowed to remain on the lists.
Should such a law be upheld, when it
is within the power of the Dominion
government to prevent such injustices?
I propose an independent preparation
of the lists in Manitoba, British Columbia and the unorganized districts of
Ontario and Quebec, and that basis of
independence which is to be found in
the municipal origin of the lists in the
organised districts of those provinces
and in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick,
Prince Edwaid Island, Alberta and
Saskatchewan vill then become common to the lists in Manitoba and
British Columbia.
Apart from these eonsidei'ations,the
government was obliged to bring in a
bill to provide the machinery to dis
tribute the voters on the provincial
lists among the Dominion constituencies. In Manitoba there are 41
provincial and 10 Dominion constituencies. The boundaries of the Dominion constituencies cut through
provincial polling divisions. The
voters on the provincial lists for such
divisions have to be carefully separated and placed in the , respective- Dominion constituencies to which they
rightly belong. At the last Dominion elections, this work was done by
the returning officers. A "thin red
line," as described in the Manitoba
act, was struck through names that
had to be transferred to an adjoining
constituency. The Dominion govern
ment thought it had provided for this
in a clause of its own act; but it was
held by the attorney-general of Manitoba that the returning officers had
a-ted without legal authority. The
returning officers and Mr. Leach, the
Liberal organiser, whom they had ju
diciously called in to help them, were
accused of having fraudulently disfranchised voters, and prosecuted,
The cases were adjourned from assize
to assfze, from year ■ to year; and, in
the end, were all dropped. Mr. Leach
was on bail until this year, and he had
to demand to be brought to trial or released from bail. The attorney-general
then said he had no evidence to offer,
and Mr. Leach was discharged.
The government has to face this situation, said Sir Wilfrid Laurier. It
will not be able to get respectable inon
to act.as returning officers if there is
a prospect that, after the elections,
they will be again subject to prosecution by the attorney-general of Manitoba. More explicit legal machinery
has to Iii! provided for tho Reparation
of the voters into their respective con
stitueucies;   and   the polling stations

The largest audience every inside
the Grand Forks opera house assembled last Friday night to hear tbe
Louise Brehany concert. Notwithstanding the fact thut a large number of extra seats had been installed
for the occasion, every one was occupied. The concert was the best
given in this city during the past
ten years. The company is made
up of artists who have gained international fame in their respective
lines, and those who did not avail
themselves of the opportunity to
hear them will regret it. Every
number was loudly encored, revealing the fact that the members of the
talented quartette stirred the audience to a high pitch of enthusiasm.
The first number on the program
was a trio between violin, 'cello and
piano, played respectively by Maximilian Dick, Edith Adams and Alice
McClung. This was followed by an
aria from Gomez. 'II Guarany,' Bung
by Miss Brehany. The number was
rendered with brilliancy and intensity. Her flute-like trills captivated
the audience. In response to a rapturous encore, the singer gave a simple ballad, "How I Got My Uncle
John." Her next number was "Because," by d'Hardelot, and "Somebody That I Know and You Know
Too," which were given to display
the range of her voice, which extends three octaves, and which she
sang in three different voices. "Ave
Maria," by Gounod' was the last
number by Miss Brehany, and was
the closing one on the program.
Maximilian Dick, the famouB violinist, was only down for one solo,
and that was Sarasate's "Faust ban-
tasie." Mr. Dick's appearance was
tbe signal for an ovation, as the audience recalled his visit to the city
two years ago. Since that time his
qualities as a violinist have ripened
considerably. Mr. Dick gave a very
tuneful und correct rendition of tbe
number. Several recalls gave tbe
audience a thorough conception of
what the artist can do on the king
of instruments. To use a trite sny-
ing, he   is  able  to iiiulic the fiddle
speak.
Miss Adams, tne 'cellist, gave
Lindner's "Concerto." Her playing
was a pleasant surprise to the audience. Few had an idea of how well
a woman can master an instrument
like the violincello and bring out thc
soul-stirring notes that dwell in it,
which can only be produced by
master hands. She was rapturously v
recalled, and delighted her hearers
with Schubert's great "Serenade."
Miss Alice McClung is an excellent
pianist, and gave "Rhapsodic No.
12," by Liszt, a florid brilliant selection, rendered so as to bring out
all of its lights and shades. "The
Witches Dance" was well rendered
in response to an encore.

FRIDAY, MAY 22, 1908
AN OHIO doctor says he has discovered tbe paresis germ, and
claims that the disease is curable.
Now, if some philanthropical member of American Medico Physiological association will hasten to discover the germ of knowledge, the
vustsuni8 of money that are now
annually being squandered in an attempt to educate people with
shrunken brains could be expended
for useful purposes.
1**HE political situation at Ottawa
at present is as uncertain as the
elements in Grand Forks. When
Thk Sin went to press the Laurier
government was still doing business,
but by the time our large edition is
run off the dissolution of the house
may have taken place.
/PHE Vancouver Province says

will be held next October, and that
Sir Wilfrid has already decided upon

nothing.

Dominion Copper
The Boston Commercial says:
Dominion Copper interests state that
the company expended its treasury
surplus of about 8100,000 on mine
development, equipment and smelter improvements last year, and that
il was a heavy loser when the price
of copper from 26 to 12} cents, as it
had a large nmount of metal in
transit and in process which had not
yet been sold. The company's increase of production hnd only fairly
begun when the decline in metal
p-ices occurred. The company is
said to have about $60,000 worth of
supplies, and $15,000 in cash. It
owes $27,000, and has $800,000 of
bonds outstanding. Some of the inside interests express a determination to raise the necessary money
and pay the bond interest, and also
to provide for a resumption of operations at the mines nfter copper
prices advance a little further. They
have every confidence in the value
of the company's properties.

chance to register, under a law that
would make good the deficiencies under the provincial law.
The Hon. Robert Rogers, minister
of public works, Manitoba, declared
that 9399 electors were disfranchised
in 1904 by the "thin red line."
John Crawford, Liberal member for
Portage la Prairie, replied that there
were not even 99.
The Hon. Robert Rogers said 777
Conservatives were disfranchised in
the provincial constituency of Haniota
alone.
Reply: In the provincial election of
1903, when tho Dominion authorities
had nothing to do with the lists, the
total vote polled was 740; and, in
1907, when the Conservatives won
the seat from the Liberals, it was only
737. Yet the Hon. Robert Rogers
said the Dominion government in the
election of 1904 disfranchised 777.
The Hon. Robert Rogers said 200
Conservatives were disfranchised in
the provincial constituency of Miiine-
dosa.
Reply: in the provincial election of
1903 the total Conservative vote
polled was 504; and in the Dominion
election of 1904 it was 521, and in
tho provincial election of 1907 it was
502. The Conservative vote of 1904
exceeded the Conservative votes of
1903 and 1907, and yet Hon. Robert
Rogers  said  200  were disfranchised.
The Hon. Robert Rogers said 147
Conservatives were disfranchised in
the town of Hamiota.
Reply: In the provincial election of
1903 tho total Conservative ■ vote
polled was 317; in the Douiinioh election of 1904 il was 314, nnd in the
provincial election of 1907 it was 317
again. Yet the Hon. Robert Rogers
said 147 Conservatives were disfranchised.
The Hon. Robert Rogers said 172

Reply: In the provincial election of

Hon. Robert Rogers said 172 were
disfranchised.
The Hon. Robert Rogers declared
that in the whole division of Marquette 1919 Conservative voters were
disfranchised.
Reply: The Conservative votes
polled   in   the Dominion ejection of
1904 exceeded the Conservative votes
polled in the provincial election of
1903 by 489.
The Hon. Robert Rogers said 1395
Conservatives were disfranchised in
Portage la Prairie; and even Conservatives who know anything about it admit that the statement is not true.
And ao on with the remainder [oi his
statements concerning the alleged
"thin red line" scandals.
There were some errors, no doubt,
said Sir Wilfrid Laurier, but they
were only such errors as were likely
to take place in reducing the 41 provincial constituencies to 10 Dominion
constituencies, and in distributing tho
votes to each. Some on the border
lines of two constituencies were either
left where they ought not to have
been or transferred when they ought
to have been left where they were;
and the indefinite ness uf the addresses
on the provincial voters' lists would
naturally have rendered it difficult
sometimes to decide in which constituency a person should vote. The Dominion government did not intend
that these difficulties should confront
returning ollicers at the next election,
anil hail, therefore, introduced this
bill to provide the machinery for tlio
work to be properly, done beforehand.
RANDOM REMARKS
Honestly, don't you feel sorry foi- n
man who looks at jyou with an air of
vacant enquiry when you are trying
to tell him a funny story?
It takes a good many years of
strenuous experience to enable a man
to profit by the knowledge he ac
quired at college.
If a woman is unable to keep a secret she can always find some other
woman who will gladly help her not to
keep it.
A boy doesn't begin to havo good
sense until he admits that his father
knows as much as he does.
There would bo a lot more silence
in this world if wo talked only about
the things we know.
Real widows and grass widows sympathize with each other, but why they
doit is a mystery.
| Some men seem to have that dire
lisease known as spring fever all the
year around.
About the only time a man is master in his own house is when his wife
isn't at home.
People who claim to know everything lire seldom able to accomplish
anything.
Honesty is the best policy, but a
good policy will make honesty much
easier.
A wise man is satisfied to appear
great in the eyes of his wife and children.
A man will forgive a pretty woman
anything as lung as she doesn't neglect
him,
In these days of incubators it's a
wise chick that knows its own mother.
Do all the good you can and you'll
find this isn't such a  bad old   world.
What society needs is shorter engagements and longer marriages.
Even the woman who is color blind
knows when she is feeling blue.
If you have a worry that interferes
with your happiness cut it out.
The more favors a man asks the
fewer he is willing to grant.
Query—Does a man suffer more by
ignorance or by knowledge?
It's too bad that some people can't
buy sense witli their dollars.
Promises other people make you are
seldom worth remembering.
More people want to get married
than want to stay married.
Let a woman talk herself to death
and she will die happy.
