Sixth Year--No. 36.
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday. April 5, 1907.
$1.00 Per Year in Advance.
Two By-Laws Introduced and
Passed First and Second
Donations Solicited for Reading Room and Tuberculosis Sanitorium
The regular bi-weekly meeting
of the city council was held in the
council chambers at 3 o'lock Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Hammar.Ald.
Donaldson, McCallum, Mcintosh
and Woodland being present.
A communication from T. P.
O'Farrell stated that a first-class
map of the city, drawn on a proper
scale, and showing all the water
mains, hydrants, electric light lines,
etc., would cost about $380. The
matter was laid on the table until
some future date.
• A telegram from the city solicitor,
who is now in Victoria, stated that
he had taken up the matter of
school grants with the government.
A communication from the Grand
Forks band asked for an appropriation of 8126 for uniforms for the
members. The letter stated that
tbe band intended to give one or
two weekly open-air concerts during
the coming summer. On motion of
Aid. Woodland and Donaldson, the
request was granted.
James McArdle and otber property owners on upper Third street
petitioned tbe council to have that
portion of the street graded. The
matter was left to the discretion of
the board of works.
Wall & Creelmnn asked for an extension of two weeks' time in which
to complete Ihe Fnurth'street traffic
bridge, as the railways had been
very slow in delivering the material.
A letter from Supt. Wilson, of the
theC. P. R., informed the council
that the city had not obtained permission from the railway commis-
s'oners to s retch the fire iilarm wires
across the C.P R. tracks, and that
unless such permission was obtained
within three months said wires
would be cut down. The clerk was
instructed to communicate with tbe
commissioners on the subject.
Dr. Kingston stated that the pro
vincial health officer bad requested
him to attend the present meeting
and explain the objects of anti
tuberculosis society, and endeavor
to secure some aid from the city for
the proposed provincial sanitorium.
The doctor treated the subject quite
exhaustively. No section of the
country was immune from the disease. There wire 2000 deaths an-
nuiilly from tuberculosis in the Dominion, ami 200 in this province.
The only scjentific and effective
method of coping with the disease
so far discovered was by the sanitorium system, which had been extensively adopted in the old country.
It was proposed to build a sanitorium somewhere neur Ka-nloops, and
it was hoped that all the municipalises in the province would render
some assistance towards its maintenance.
Aid. Woodland said it was a
worthy cause, but he was afraid thc
city would not be justified in rendering much assistance for the present
year. The mayor explained tbe
city's finances, together with the
large amount of public work that
would have to be carried out during
the present summer. The matter
was finally disposed of by the council instructing the doctor to explain
to Dr. Fagan the city's situation,
and to tell him tbat for the present
year at least the city would not be
justified in financially aiding the in
Fred Clark addressed the council
on behalf of tbe free library and
reading room, stating tbat unless
some assistance was given by tbe
city towards the maintenance ol the
institution it would have to close.
A provincial library consisting of
110 volumes had just arrived in the
city, and this would have to be returned to Victoria if the rooms were
not kept open. Aid. Donaldson
thought that tbe beneficiaries of the
reading room were better able to
maintain it than the ratepayers.
The mayor said the city should
adopt Mr. Carnegie's plan, and com
pel the people who were benefited
by the reading room to contribute
an equal amount with the city. He
suggested that the athletic association give a "smoker" to raise funds,
and then the council could proba
bly see its way clear to give an equal
amount. G. M. Fripp also spoke
briefiy on this subject, coinciding
with tbe viewe expressed by the
mayor, On motion of Aid. Woodland and McCallum, a committee of
two was appointed to confer with the
reading room people, and to report
at the next meeting. The mayor
named Messrs. Woodland and McCallum as such committee.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported having received numerous complaints lately
regarding the insufficiency of the
water supply on account of too small
The chairmnn of the hoard of
works reported that the city team
vas ut present employed for street
repair work. The mayor suggested
that it be put to work ut once on tbe
approach to the Fourth street bridge.
The mayor brought to the attention of the council tlit* fact that the
city water mains had been tapped in
half a dozen places by the C.P.R.,
and that the city was receiving no
revenue for the water used from
these taps
On motion of Aid Donaldson und
McCullum, the clerk was instructed
to notify the C.P.R. company thut
the contract lor water at the present
rate would be'terminated ut the end
ofthe present month.
Two by-laws, one providing f>>r the
closing of a portion of u street ut tbe
cemetery, and the other regulating
the sale of wood, were introduced
and passed their lirst and sbcon
The council then adjourned.
A Timely Article by A. McNeil,
of Dominion Department
of Agriculture
Method of Pruning to Best
Promote the Growth of
Fruit Spurs
J. F. Royer, who was formerly tn
gaged in the livery business here, wus
a visitor in the city last Saturday.
Mr. Royer is now located at Oroville,
Wash. He stuted that that town is
booming at present, und that the steel
gang on the V., V. k K. has now nearly reached the present terminus of the
grade at Keremeos. No grading eon
tracts have yet been let west of that
Dr. Kingston started this week   on
a business tiip to the coast cities.
Mr. A. McNeill, chief of the horticultural division, Dominion department of agriculture, has contributed
a very interesting article to the Toronto Globe on pruning. Unfortunately it is too long for our limited
space, but we quote some of the most
valuable passages.
The apple spur is fruitful only for
three or four years, and then drops
off or bears only inferior fruit. The
cherry ana plum, as well as the pear,
remain fruitful for many years; hence
it is that the old wood, including the
large branches' are in these trees covered with fruit spurs. This difference
in the life of the fruit spur on the
pear, plum and cherry, compared with
the apple, makes a- marked difference
in the methods of pruning these trees.
Since the old wood soon becomes unfruitful in the apple trees, it is necessary to provide new wood continually;
but in the Case of the pear, a tree
which has once attained its full size
and occupies all the space that can be
allowed it, may grow fruit for years
with little or no addition of new
The peach tree does not develop
fruit spurs, but has fruit buds on one
year old wood. Consequently in all
methods of treating the peach tiee
we must remember that we cannot
expect fruit except from last year's
We cannot have our developed fruit
buds and fruit unless there is a good
growth of wood; hence we endeavor in
our methods of pruning to get a
healthy wo si growth first, which includes the development of stems and
buds that will open up into healthy
leaves. Iu the case of fruit buds, two
and two do not always make four for
practical purposes. Indeed, tho opposite rule more frequently applies, s >
that the fewer tbe buds the better the
results obtained, within certain limits,
uf course. The pnner's art consists in
selecting the best fruit buds and giving them the best chance in the struggle for existence.
How much we should cut away depends upon the balance between the
root system, light, air and plant food
at our disposal. The wounds mode
by pruning, if properly pre t3cted from
decay by paint or other material, are
not at all harmful to the tree. If the
tree has been neglected for a number
of years, it would be poor policy indeed to cut ull the limbs away at once
that might be judiciously spared in
the course uf time. The limbs and
trunk developed uuder conditions of
dense shade^should not be deprived of
this shade too suddenly, as there would
be great danger of sun scald. Speak
ing generally, the'tendency is to leave
too much wood, even where tlu- pruning is done fairly well from the start.
Wbut can be done to develop the
fruit buds? It is a matter of common
observation that.ona tree.'nuking ex
cessiyu   wood   growth fruit spurs, or
buds, are not develo pe<l iu a] corresponding degree It has been observed
also that anything that checks the
wood growth will develop fruit spurs.
This is the theory of root pruning,
girdling and growing in sod. Diminish
the vigor of wood growth and nature
makes an effort to perpetuate herself
through the fruit. It is doubtful,
however, if any of these methods are
to be recommended upon commercial
grounds. Every species of tree has its
period of maturity. It is possible for
some such methods as have been indicated to throw it into fruit before this
period of maturity is reached, but
only at the expense of the vitality of
the tree.
There is another method that has
shown good results. If the terminal
bud of a fast-growing shoot be cut off,
the effect is to develop all the remaining buds to a greater or less degree.
The upper buds will shoot forward
with a wood growth. Those lower
down will often develop fruit spurs,
This work should be done about the
middle of the growing season. Cutting away in the spring one-half or
two-thirds of the previous year
growth is good practice where there is
excessive wood growth. It increases
the tendency to develop fruit spnrs,
and brings the bearing wood nearer
the stem of the tree. We do not expect a young apple tree or pear tree
growing naturally to bear fruit for a
number of years. During these years
it is making a large wood growth, and
pushing far out from the stem the
wood upon which fruit spurs will be
formed when the tree reaches maturity. By judicious cutting back of
new growth each year while the tree
is young, there will be new wood
formed, ready for fruit spurs when the
time for bearing has arrived. This
treatment will prevent long branches
bare of fruit spurs, so common in
young nnd vigorous orchards.
Heavy pruning tends to promote
wood growth, showing clearly that
pruning is not detrimental to the
health of trees, but us wood is only
desired inasmuch as we can make it
produce fruit, we may sometimes be
disappointed in not getting fruit the
first yerr after pruning a neglected
orchard, because the growth has gone
to wood rather than to fruit spurs,
but a balance will be produced so that
in the second or following year a crop
will be produced which will amply re
ward the labors of the pruner.
It is sometimes said that we must
prune in winter for wood and in summer for fruit. This is only partly
true. Winter pruning should be the
rule, as mure work can be done in a
given time. It is not so busy a
son, and I have yet to learn of any
serious damage resulting from druning
iu the late winter. It is true, however,
that summer pruning, or rather the
stopping of fast-growing shoots during
the month of June, has a marked tendency to develop fruit buds lower
down the branch; but economic considerations must always prevent much
of this work being done in the apple
orchard, as the cost of doing the work
will more than offset the benefit of it.

Calgary, April 3.—The following
notice, signed by Sherman, Patterson and McDonald, officers of the

difference in the number of men employed in the service in this city.
On Tuesday, the day previous to
the date of the above dispatch, the
labor situation in the Southeast
Kootenay coal fields appeared to
be brighter than it hod been for
weeks, and the possibility of a
strike, with its accompanying derangement of industrial conditions,
seemed quite remote. In Pernio notices were posted in prominent places
instructing the men to remain at work,
and informing them that the new
agreement, when effected, would dato
from April 1st. Theso instructions
were issued by District President
Sherman. This news of the prospect
of an early settlement of all differences between the coal operators and
miners, and tho expectation of tho
ratification of a satisfactory and lasting agreement,was hailed with delight
by the people of this section of tho
province, whore our leading industry
is wholly dependant on an adequate
coke supply. But our joy waa doomed
to be short lived. However, somo fortunate combination of events may

Shall Women Vote?
Editor Evening Sun.
Ad excellent paper has been con
tributed to the press on behalf of the
W.C.T.U. by Mrs. J. K. Mackin,
president. She strikes the right nail
on the head when she says that
women should have something to say
about the continued existence of
temptations which meet their boys at
every turn after they have crossed the
doorsteps of their homes, and are out
of the sound of their mother's voice.
She further contends that women need
a vote to protect themselves; wage-
earning women need it; women with
property need it; women with homes
and children need it. If it were necessary to show that a woman is capable and deserving of the power of administration, we need only quote the
pe.sonal history of Queen Victoria.
Would it not have been a little better
if, at certain periods of the nineteenth
century, Queen Victoria had presided
over a council having the direction of
affairs, composed, say of the Baroness
Burdett-Coutts, Florence Nightingale, Geo. Elliot, Mrs. Booth, Lady
Beaconsfield, Ludy Henry Somerset
and Francis Willard, and women of
that type? Many men would not
hesitate to consult their mother' upon
important matters affecting thematerial
welfaroe and moral education of their
children. There are few who will not
grant that women often come to a
right conclusion much moie rapidly
than men, and the difficulty only
arises when they are asked to give a
reason for their conclusions. But in
voting by ballot it may be safely inferred that the majority would come
to a right conclusion, and they would
not have to express their reasons,
Women vote in our municipal atl'aijs;
then why not entrust them with the
whole franchise:
It is only in a very recent period
that women have be n permitted to

oughly and conscientiously they do

that universal suffrage should be

"A Jolly American Tramp"
"A Jolly American Tramp" is the
striking title of a new play by E. E.
Kidder, the well knoxn author who
wrote "A Poor Relation" and "Peaceful Valley," which attained considerable fame. The play will be offered
by the veteran manager, U. D. Newell, at the Grand Forks opera house,
Saturday evening, April 13. It is a
story of American life portrayed by
American characters, and told in a
quick, sparkling way, full of strong
dramatic climaxes, brisk dialogue and
brilliant comedy. The central idea
concerns the defrauding of a life insurance company by a rascal named
Joe Barrett., But the idea and treatment are absolutely new and original,
if such things can truthfully be said
in dramatic writing today. Joe Barrett insures his wife's life for $20,000,
and then, by his scheming, lays claim
she died. He has, however, stupified
her with powerful drugs and keeps her
a close prisoner in the top garret of
his house, where no one ever visits except himself. He then substitutes a
body, the face of whioh has been destroyed, and the body is buried as his
wife's, and he collects the $20,000
from the insurance company. His
step-daughter, a little girl of fourteen,
the child of the ill-treated wife, is
away at school at this time,and knows
nothing of her mother being alive, be-

ing forbidden to go upon the upper
floor of the house where the victim is
secreted. The suspicions of a detective named Warren Wade, connected
with the insurance company, are
aroused, and with the assistance of the
woman's child, a little girl named Flo,
and his friend Barker, and a quaint
character, a tramp called Happy Jack,
he discovers the unfortunate woman
secreted in the attic, being treated to
slow poison, and after an exciting
series of adventures restores her to
her daughter and friends, and ' metes
out the proper punishment to Barrett
and his accomplices, an adventuress
who has agreed to marry hiin and fly
to foreign lands with the $20,000 defrauded from the life insurance company. The character of Happy Jack
played by Jim Smith, the character
actor, is a most novel and quaint conceit. He is an ex-circus performer, the
death of his wife and children having
robbed him of all ambition until lie
becomes, as he expresses it, a common
ordinary American tramp, one like
you read of in the funny papers that
is a standing joke to everyone but.
themselves. This interesting story is
told with pleasing specialties, with
wholesome comedy by Happy Jaik
and a comic Irishwoman named Delia
Dooley, whose bright lines keep the
audience in continuous good humor
throughout the entire evening's entertainment.
