Sixth Year---No. 54.
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday. August 9, 1907,
Yale-Columbia   Lumber   Co-
Refuses to Replace Bridge
at First Street
Office of City Solicitor Declared Vacant After August 31st
The bi-weekly meeting of the city
council was held in the council
chamber Monday evening. Mayor
Hammar, Aid. Hardy, Horner, McCallum, Mcintosh, Miller and Woodland were.present.
A communication was read from
Secretary Robertson, of the Yale-
Columbia Lumber company, stating
that the company could not comply
with the council's request to replace
the First street bridge with a foot
bridge, as the old structure had been
condemned. The city solicitor stated
that the fact that the bridge bad
been condemned did not'release tbe
company from liability. He was
of the opinion that if a sufficient
force of workmen had been employed the log jam could have been
broken up before it carried out the
bridge. Anyway, the company had
no right to blow it out of the channel after it collapsed. In giving
an off-hand decision, the only question in his mind was whether t^c
city or the government should act in
the premises. On motion, the matter was left in the hands of the city
A communication was read from
City Engineer Reid,who complained
of being compelled to put in too
much overtime, and stating bin
hours on duty were unreasonably
long. Aid. Miller suggested transferring Chief Savage to night duty,
so that he could run the pump during the early morning hours. Some
of the aldermen did not tbink the
police were doing ibeir duty in preventing water consumers from wasting it. On motion, tbe council recommended to the police commissioners that the hours of the policemen on duty be changed so as to en'
able Chief Savage to run the pump
in the morning. The mayor stated
that tbe sprinkling bylaw would be
strictly enforced hereafter.
'I'he bill ot City Engineer Reid for
overtime was referred to the finance
The mayor reported that Mrs.
Wiseman had refused to accept the
council's offer for a right of way, and
had ordered the electric light poles
removed from ber property.
The chairman of the board of
works reported that Mrs. Burgess
had applied for a permit to erect a
residence near tbe Catholic church.
It appears tbat an old government
road runs through her property, and
some doubt was expieesed as to
her right to close the same without
constructing another road around
her lets. The matter was referred
to the city solicitor.
The chairman of the finance com
mittee recommended that Colin
Campbell be engaged to do the city
clerk's work during the latter'b vacation.   Recommendation approved.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that the
bose and other apparatus for the
fire department had arrived. He
recommended the installation of a
street light at the corner of Victor! -
avenue and Fourth street. Approved.
The chairman of the board or
works reported that the heat had
contracted the timbeis in the new
bridge, and that the joints needed
tightening. He stated tbat Mr.
Verge would be in town in about a
woek with the necessary implements
to do the work.
The mayor reported that the
agreement for power for the ensuing
three years had been forwarded to
Mr. L. A. Campbell at Rossland.
. The bill of R. Mcintosh, for $50,
for inspecting the Fourth street,
waa,vbrought up. Aid. McCallum
said he had previously recommended the payment of the same, and he
thought the council should pay it
now. Aid. Hardy and Mcintosh
objected, ild. Woodland moved
that the bill be laid over till the
next meeting. Aid. Hardy and
Horner amended this by moving
that the bill be thrown out, and tbe
amendment carried. The clerk was
instructed to inform Mr. Mcintosh
of the action taken by tbe council.
Mr. Gallipeau asked the council
to give Mr. Tennery, the new bandmaster, any spare employment it
might bave at its disposal, aa be was
a grst-class musician and they desired to keep him in the1 city. The
heads of the various committees
promised to do the best they could
in this I'espect.
The chairman of the health and
relief committee reported that the
proprietor of tbe Geand Forks hotel
had commenced tn make tbe necessary improvements. The proprietor of Victoria had promised to commence on the following day. The
Granby hotel had not yet started on
tbe work. The mayor explained
tbat only one-month permits had
been granted these places.
Aid. McCallum was granted leave
to introduce a bylaw providing for
the destruction of obnoxious weeds
within the city limits, and it passed
its first and second readfngs and
through the committee stage. It attaches a penalty, collectable in the
same manner as taxes, for failure to
destroy all obnoxious weeds within
48 hours after being notified to
do so.
The question of raising the city
solicitor's salary from $50 to 975
per month was next brought up, and
it took an unexpected turn. Aid.
Hardy moved, seconded by Aid.
Miller, that the eity solicitor's oflice
be declared vacant after the 31st of
August. A vote being taken on the
motion, it was declared carried.
Aid. Miller gave as his lesson for
seconding the motion, that he
thought it would be better to have
the office vacant while the amount
of the salary was in dispute. After
a brief discussion, in which
the whole council participated, the mayor called for the correspondence in reference to tbe salaries of city solicitors in other cities.
The clerk read the following results
of his investigations: Vernon, (300
and fees per year; Kaslo, $40o per
year; Revelstoke, no solicitor; Fernie, $50 per month; Rossland, $70
per month; Greenwood, £50 per
month; Nelson, $1000 per year;
Kamloops. $300 per year. City So-

Four Claims on Hardy Mountain Containing Valuable
Professional Assayer Certifies to the Presence
of Nickel
iiii at regular distances. They
have probably brought the valuable
minerals, as most of tbem carry
gold, and many of tbem are highly
metalliferous. They vary in appearance. Some of them are smooth
and fine groin, no doubt andesites,
and other rough, trachytes.
Some other discoveries, which will
he made public later, bave been
made on these claims.
From the great mass of Hardy
mountain there adjuts a conical-
sbaped bill, about half a mile from
the western boundary of Grand
Forks, and around its steep slopes
now runs a branch of the Great
Northern railway to the great copper mines at Phoenix. On this hill
are situated four mineral claims—
Selene, Columbia, Arsene and Bonita Vista—of which we make the old
statement that tbey yet will have
something to do with the future
prosperity of the neighborhood.
The reason for this belief may be
briefly stated in certain discoveries
that have been made the last year
and a half.
The mountain appears to be
seamed witb zones of fracture, which
trend from tbe northeast to the
southwest. Along these zones are
situated leads or ledges, one above
the other, up the mountain side.
Every lead dips at an angle of 45
degrees towards the west. The
gangue is quartz and calcite, or
crystalized lime. They are all, so
far as examined, very metalliferous
—mostly arsenical iron. They are
auriferous, assaying $1 and upwards.
Two of these are now being worked
specially to obtain a water supply.
Although situated 200 feet almost
perpendicular above the railroad,
they are very wet, showing that no
doubt  they have depth.
Should these ledges contain a
valuable base metal, tbey have sufficient values in gold to be worked
commercially at once, from their
splendid shipping facilities. This
has been tried for so*ne time by
making private tests, by the wet
process, to obtain a test for nickel,
which hns been found in many por-
phory dykes, us well as the quarlzite
leads. Lust May some of the samples supposed to carry this metal
were sent tu a professional assayer,
who certifies tbat nickel is present.
It is not necessary to point out the
importance of this discovery, nickel
being twice m valuable as copper,
and where it is found it is generally
in lurge quantities, But testing for
this metal is troublesome and expensive, being almost ten times more
expensive than testing for gold.
It may be inferred from what has
been stated regarding the quartzite
leads that tbey are very numerous.
Some of them also appear to be very
large—twenty feet or more in width.
There are many varieties of nickel
minerals. All of them contain arsenic, most of them iron or sulphur,
and some copper. The samples of
white, hard cubical crystals, which
were tested by the assayer, were
taken from a large porphory dyke
in the western part of tbe mountain.
This dyke can be traced from the
railroad for more than 400 yards.
Work was done on it this spring.
Porphory dykes traverse the moun-

The coke question is again a burning issue in the Boundary, and it is
reported from Phoenix that men are
being laid off at the mines because a
sufficient supply cannot be obtained to
operate the full battery of furnaces at
smelter in this city. Owing to the
coke and car shortage, the Granby
smelter has not been able tu operate
more than five or six of its eight furnaces for some time, and this condition is liable to continue indefinitely
unless the railways come to a full
realization of the seriousness of the
At the British Columbia Copper
company's smelter at Greenwood the
coke question is also becoming acute,
and the company is experiencing some
difficulty in keeping its three large
furnaces in continuous operation.
The Dominion Copper company's
smelter at Boundary Falls appears to
be able to operate as usual, and the
full force of men is still kept employed
at this .company's mines.
Fuel Famine
The Toronto Globe, in an editorial
on the prospect of a fuel famine in the
west this coming winter, says in part:
It seems questionable if the fuel supply of the prairie provinces, import-
tan t and difficult to procure, can safely be left to accidents or private speculation and enterprise. Adjustments
of supply and demand cannot be arranged by magic. There will be shortages in various lines in spite of the
best business calculations. But the
fuel supply is of such special moment
that the question of legislative interference or supervision is worthy of
careful consideration by tho local governments. "
John Noye, a miner, aged 42 and
a native of Cornwall, England, was
recently found dead not far from the
Mother Lode mine, where he bad
wandered un from Greenwood and
laid down to his last rest. Deceased
had been subject to cramps, and a
brother working at the Skylark
mine, together with the coroner, did
not think an inquest necessary.
Manager Thomas, of the Dominion
Copper company, states that he has
plans drawn for a two-stand converter
plant to be installed at the company's
smelter at Boundary Falls. The
plant, it is reported, is to be installed
in the course of a few months. The
matte from the Dominion Copper
company's smelter has heretofore been
blown up to blister copper by the
British Columbia Copper company at

D. C. Coleman, Kootenay-Boundary
superintendent of the C. P. II., has
again given assurancet that 100 steel
ore dumps are now en route from the
Montreal shops, to be used in the
Boundary ore traffic. Mine managers
are in hopes that this time the cars
have actually been shipped, and will
reach this country some time in the
near future, and so tend to relieve the
shortage which is so keenly felt by
the shipping mines.

the Great Northern railway, made a

"The decision of jury in the Green-
World libel suit throws no stigma on
eic-Commissioi.ci' Green's name," say
the Conservative papers. We hod an
idea that it did; but it is quite possible that we have forgotten the definition of "stigma," and will refrain from
arguing the case. It is also quite
possible that Mr. Greon's name is of
such a character that if a stigma
should be cast upou it no serious damage would be done.
During the month of June the public debt was reduced by $2,233,248,
and interest upon this large sum has
ceased. The policy of the Liberal
party is to reduce the public debt and
relieve the people of the payment of
interest. The policy of the Conserva
tives, as announced in tho house of
commons by Hon. Mr. Foster, on November 29, 1906, is to add to the
public debt and thus increase the
burdens of the people.

bad federal administration all this
would have been impossible; witq
good government all things tending to
material good are possible The people of Canada are grateful for the
blessiug they enjoy, and one of the
choicest, which makes for the well
being of the citizens genemlly, is intelligent progressive government.
Such a government Canada now enjoys, and no change will be made un
til better cause is shown than is obvious at the moment.
Mr. McBride has returned o Canada satisfied that British ministers
have refused to set the seal of finality
upon the scale of provincial subsidies
in the British North America Bill,
says the London Canadian Gazette.
But the amendments accepted at the
instance of Lord Elgin in the house
of lords on Tuesday hardly confirm
tliatb elief. It will be recalled that,
when the bill was before the house of
commons, Mr. Winston Churchill announced that to make the legislation
agreeable to the prime minister of
British Columbia, the words "final
and unalterable," which the Dominion government had proposed to introduce, would be omitted, and so leave
the way open to British Columbia to
"make some other friendly arrangement in the future with the Dominion
and the other provinces." When the
bill came before the lords, Lord Elgin, as colonial secretary, sot himself
to restore the "final and unalterable"
character of the adjustment. A preamble was inserted consisting of the
address presented to his majesty by
the senate and commons of Canada,
wherein the finality of the new scale
of subsidies is established. Moreover,
the following new subsection was
added: "In the case of the provinces
of British Columbia and Prince Edward Island, the amount paid on account of the grant payable per head
of population to the provinces under
this act sliall not at any time be less
than the amount of the corresponding
grant payable at the commencement
of this act; and if it is found on any
decennial census that the population
of the province has decreased since
the last decehnial census, the amount
paid on account of the grant shall not
be deceased below the amount then
payable, notwithstanding the decrease
of the population."
The Liberal party looks back over a
period of ten years with satisfaction.
An unbroken chain of promises faithfully kept, of results achieved far beyond the most sanguino anticipations,
and this record is one upon which the
party and the government will be
judged when the time arrives.
That this is Canada's century is no
longer questioned. From one end of
the land to the other reports come of

Canada, has arrived at his home in

If further evidence were wanting of
the personal popularity of the prime

supply it. Men of all ranks m life,
and of every political shade, vied with
each other to extend a hearty welcome to the returning statesman.
Sir Wilfrid himself is in the hest of

International Coal & Coke Co.
The International Coal k Coke
comepany, of Coleman, Alta., paid its
fourth quarterly diviilend of $42,000
last Friday, IJ cents per share being
disbursed among the stockholders.
The company iB capitalized at $3,000,-
000 and has 2,800,000 outstanding
shares on whieh dividends are paid at
the rate of^ 1 cent per share. Friday's payment brought the total dividends paid to $98,000. The mine
was orignally owned by Dan Schultz
and A. Paulson, of Spokane. Advices have been received from H. N.
Galer, general manager of the company, which tell of the closing down
of the mine on July 28 temporarily
awaiting the arrival of cars. Several
months ago the Canadian Pacific railway made extensive contracts with
the company for the entire output.
On the strength of these contracts the
working forces of the mine were
doubled and additional expenditures
made to insure the moving of the coal
at the proper time, the manager believing that no car shortage would be
encountered. Reports state that unless the car shortage is immediately
remedied, the west will find itself in
the grip of a fuel shortage worse than
that of last year.
The Kettle Valley line has finished
grading Third street, and that thoroughfare is decidedly improved in appearance.

Bucking Bronco
Sustains   Internal   Injuries
Necessitating an Operation
Thomas Newby, a pioneer of this
city, met with a serious accident on
Wednesday by being thrown from a
bucking bronco between this city and
his ranch. He was removed to the
Grand Forks hospital, where it was
found that he had sustained internal
injuries of such a serious nature as to
necessitate an operations, which was
performed by Drs. Newcombe and
Truax, of this oity, and Dr. Dickson,
of Phoenix. Last night Dr. Newcombe, who is in charge of the case,
reported the condition of the patient
as extremely critical.
At noon today Mr. Newby was reported as holding his own, and there
is a slight hope of his ultimate recovery. His condition, however, is stated
to be quite precarious, and the attend
ing physicians do not care to venture
an opinion as to the final outcome of
the case.
Mrs, Newby, who has been residing at Gilpin, Alta., for some time,
has been notified by wire of the lamentable accident, and will undoubtedly make all possible haste to reach
her nusband's bedside.

Better Immigrants
It has been said in the house of
commons, notably by Mr. Bourassa,
of Labelle, that the immigrants arriving in Canada are not a desirable ele-
ment.but are the scourings of continental Europe.    What are the facts?
For the last fiscal period ending
March 31, 11)07, British immigration
to Canada totalled 55,791, an increase
of 18,170 over the same period of
1905-6. The increase in English immigration was 37. per cent and iu
Scotch immigration 8*1 per cent. Since
1901-2 the ratio of increase in English immigration, year by year, has
been as follows:
1901*2 39 per cent
1902-3 148 per cent
1903-4 13 per cent
1904-5 30 per cent
1905-6 33 percent
1906-7 37 per cent
Scotch immigration has increased as
1901-2 93 percent
1902 3 147 per ceut
1903-4 30 per cent
1904-5 11 per cent
1906-7 84 per cent
A further examination of the statis
tics prove beyond a doubt that Canada has the preference as a field of
emigration, not excepting the United
States. By far the greater number of
immigrants to the Dominion hail from
the mother country. The objective
point of British emigration is shifting
to Canada, as will be seen by the following figures:
U.S. Can. Aus. Cape
