Hotelkeepers Ask for Lower
License Fees, and Are
After a Heated  Discussion,
City Solicitor's Salary Is
Reduced to $50
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chamber Monday evening,
Mayor Hammar, Aid. Hardy, Horner,
McCallum, Mcintosh and Woodland
being present.
A communication was read from
the hotelkeepers of the city. They
petitioned the council to reduce present
fee for liquor licenses, which they
claimed was higher than in any other
city in the province with the exception of Vancouver. Aid. Horner
favored the present fee, and said the
hotelkeepers who couldn't pay it
should djop out. Aid. Woodland said,
in view of the fact that' two licenses
had been cut out, and the city would
have to make up the revenue lost by
these cancellations in some other way,
it wuld be better to raise the price of
the licenses. On his motion, the petition was laid on the table.
The finance committee recommended the payment of the usual number
of accounts. The committee's recommendation was approved. The committee refused to endorse a bill of $50
from Robert Mcintosh for overseeing
the construction of the approach to
the Fourth street bridge. Aid. McCallum chairman of the board of
works, said he had engaged Mr. Mcintosh to superintend the word without consulting the other members of
t'le committee. Aid. Mcintosh whs
of the opinion that the board of works
could have done all the inspecting of
the approach necessary. He had inspected the bridge after it was completed by walking over, and made no
charge for his services. That was all
the work the bridge inspector had
done, and he wanted $50 from the
city. Aid. Mcintosh said he was as ca
pable of judging if the work had been
properly done as the Bridge Inspector
Mcintosh. The mayor did not think
the council should blame Aid. McCal
lum, as it had not been customary
heretofore for chairmen of committees
to consult the other members when
outplaying men. Aid. Woodland did
not think this was a parallel rase, as
il had not been a question of employ
ing iii-ii. Aid. Horner said the bridge
inspector was drawing $5 a day from
the government at the same time he
was doing the overseeing for the city,
as he had not sent in his report to
Victoria about the bridge until after
the approach had been finished. Aid.
Hardy said 05(1 was too high—$10
would have been a good price for
walking over, the bridge. On motion of Aid. Mcintosh and Horner,
the account was rejected.
The finance committee reported
that they had taken steps to have the
Fisher building removed from alley
way, Jess Fisher having promised to
move the same as soon as possible.
Aid. Woodland reported that Mrs.
Wiseman wjnted 8~>0 in cash and the
free  wiring  of  her residence for the
right of way of the city's pole line
across her property daring tho past
six years. On motion of Aid. Woodland and McCallum, the council decided to make a settlement on a basis
of (50 cash, the wiring to be at the
expense of Mrs. Wiseman, she also to
pay the regular price for light.
Aid. Hardy reported that City En-
gideer Reid had asked for four or five
days' leave of absence during the com
ing week. Granted, provided he makes
satisfactory arrangements to have his
work performed during his absence.
Aid. McCallum reported that the
city's lumber supply had arrivod, and
that it was of a good quality.
The mayor said that some steps
should be taken to have the First
street bridge repaired. It had been
generally conceded by competent
judges, he said, that the Yale-Columbia Lumber company's river drivers
did know how to handle the log jam
that carried out a portion of the structure, and ho was therefore of the
opinion that the company should be
asked to repair it. On motion, the
clerk was instructed to notify the
Yale-Columbia Lumber company to
repair the bridge.
David Whiteside was present, and
called the attention of the council to
the Donan case. He said word had
been received from the attorney-
general that the city should attend to
the prosecution, and he suggested that
the city solicitor be instructed to act
in that capacity. It was, he said,
difficult to conceive of a more distressing case, and the sooner it was
ended the better it would be for all
concerned. Aid. Woodland said it
was more of an accident than anything else. On motion, the city solicitor was empowered to act on behalf of the city, and to use his own
discretion in the case.
Aid. Horner thought the two hotels whose licenses had been cancelled
should be given an opportunity to put
their premises in a sanitary condition,
the same as the Granby and Victoria.
He could not see the justice of giving
two places a chance to comply with the
law, and denying that privilege to
others. He wanted them all placed
on the same basis. On motion of Aid.
Horner and Hardy, the council recommended to the board of licensing commissioners that they grant licenses to
the Square and Grand Forks hotels.
On motion of Aid. Woodland and
Horner, the account of Dr. Kingston
for the care of a city patient named
Dent was allowed. This has been
vexed question ever since the present
council took otlice, as the bill was in
curred by the old board, and there is
nothing in the minutes of the proceed
ings to show that it was authorized.
On this ground payment has been
fused up to thc present. Tho doctor
stated that ho had been authorized by
Mr. Spraggett, then chairman of the
health and relief committee, to give
the man hospital treatment, and he
furnished tho council with complete
data during the time the man was a
city charge. The bill has also been
opposed on the ground that Dent wus
a comparative stranger in the coin
munity, but both the mayor and the
doctor stated that municipalities have
often been compelled to care for distressed strangers on humanitarian
Aid. Hardy brought up the police
question. He suggested that Mr.
Savage be transferred to night duty,
and Mr. Dinsmore to the day shift.
By making this change,the day police*

20,000 Club Decides to Advertise Valley by Means of
Enlarged Photos
Committee Appointed to Investigate Feasible Irrigation System
The meeting of the 20,000 club in
the city hall Tuesday evening was
well attended. One of the most important subjects discussed was that
of having enlarged photos mode of
scenes of interest in the valley and
city and have placed in the provincial exhibit at the Winnipeg and
North-West fairs. In this manner it
is anticipated that the resources and
beauty of the district can be effectively advertised at small expense.
Secretary A. E, Smith reported that
he had written to Mr. Carpenter, the
Spokane photographer for quotations
for this class of work,
Wm. Spier stated that he had received a number of views from Cooper Bros., and if they could be used
for enlarging purposes the club would
be welcome to them. He was of the
opinion that if good photos of scenes
in this vicinty were added to the provincial exibit at the fairs at Winnipeg
and in the North-West it would as
good an advertisement for the valley
as could be got.
On motion, a vote of thanks was
tendered Cooper Bros, for the photos.
The selection of views, and the advisability of having them enlarged,
was left to the distretion of fhe adver
tising committee, providing they received satisfactory quotations.
Mr. F. E. Cooper offered to furnish
the frames and frame a couple of pictures free of charge, for which he was
tendered a vote of thanks.
The railway committee reported
that they had drafted a letter to District Superintendent Coleman, of the
C.P.R., urging the organization of
excursion^ parties nnd trains from
Manitoba aud the Northwest to
Grand ForkH.
A suggestion was made that enlarged photos depicting scenes in the
Kettle valley he placed on the bouts
running on Arrow and Kootenay lakes,
and at divisional points throughout
the North-west and Manitoba.
The election of a new executive
committee resulted as follows. Messrs.
Wm. Spier, A. E. Smith, Neil McCal
lum, W J. Brown AI. Traunweiser,
A. A. Steves, VV. B. Bower, Jas
MeArdle, F. E, Cooper, W. H. Covert and A. li. Sloan.
After the adjournment of the chili
a short session was held ol the executive was hold, at which the president
appointed the following committees:
Advertising—Win. Spier, A. E.
Smith, Neil McCalluin; W. J. Brown,
L. A. Manly, A. B. Sloan.
Membership—Al. Traunweiser, F.
E. Cooper, A. A. -Steeves, Jas. Mc*
Aidle, VV. H. Covert, W. B. Bower.
These committees include the president of the club ami the president of
the board of trade.
On motion of Messrs. Manly and
Traunweiser, the entertainment committee was authorized to give a
"smoker" in the near future, the date
and  arrangements  being  left  to the
discretion of the committee.
The subject of establishing some
comprehensive irrigating scheme in
the valley was discussed at length,
and on motion a special committee,
consisting of Messrs. L. A. Manly
and Jeffery Haininar.was appointed to
confer with Mr. L. A. Campbell, of
the West Kootenay Power it Light
company, in regard to the price of
power for pumping purposes.
The meeting throughout was very
enthusiastic, all the members expressing the opinion that a comparison of
thiB valley with other sections of the
province as a fruit growing country
would be sure enhance the value of
land in this vincinity.
It is generally conceded that the
club is the best oranization ever attempted in the city to advertise our
resources, and it cannot fail to be productive of good results.
Cancel aton of Two Licenses
Causes a Great Deal of
Grand Forks Hotel Case Will
Probably be Reopened by
the Commissioners
New Business Firm
Messrs. Neil McCallum and Jas
McArdle have opened a very
commodious real estate office on
the corner ot First and Bridge
Btreets. Both members of the firm
are pioneers of the city, and are
men of unquestioned business integrity. Mr. McCallum enjoys the
distinction of having made more
real estate deals during the past six
months than any other dealer in the
city. The addition of Mr. McArdle's
name to the ffrm should increase
tbeir popularity, as he is of so
sunny a disposition that few newcomers will be able to resist the
temptation of investing in realty,
if only fur the privilege of residing
in the same valley with him. The
new firm intends to make a specialty
of making investments for nonresidents, and as both these gentlemen are thoroughly reliable, outside
investors need have no hesitancy in
entrusting business to their care.
The Sun bespeaks a prosperous fu
ture for these enterprising gentlemen.

Icy line track through the city has
now been completed, and the Republic passenger train now runs
over it to the C.P.R. depot, instead
of using the tracks ol the latter road
from tbe junction, ns hereto ore.
A furore of excitement was created during the first part of the week
by the action of the license commissioners, at its regular  meeting last
week,   in   refusing  to   renew the
licenses of  the  Grand Forks  and
Square hotels.    Interest in tbe matter is at present gradually abating,
however.   The reports of the license
inspector showed that four different
hotels   were in an unsanitary condition.   Two of these, the Victoria
saloon and the Granby hotel, were
granted    renewals on condition of
putting their premises in sanitary
condition.   The Grand Forks hotel
had the requisite number of rooms
required by law, the house nad been
run satisfactorily, but the building
was prononnced out of shape and
the sanitary  condition   bad.   The
report on the Square was much more
unsatisfactory.   It did not have the
requ'sd nuTrber of rooms, and tbe
building waa declared unsafe. The
commissioners—Mayor Hammar, P.
T. McCallum and Robt. Mcintosh
—decided not to renew the licenses
of these two hotels,   and adjourned
the meeting until Monday evening.
At the adjourned meeting Monday night A. C. Sutton appeared on
behalf of the two liconsees and urged
a reconsideration of the case by the
commissioners.   Mr. Sutton pointed
out that   in  the  way of taxation,
water  and   light   rates and license
fees, these two places paid  in over
82000 of revenue to the city, which
would bo lost if  the commissioners
persisted in cancellation.   Mb client
of the Grand Forks hotel had purchased   the   property  for   'J3200 a
short time ago, and had since spent
8800 in cash on improvemntsj   All
they  wanted was to be put on the
same footing that  the Granby and
Victoria were,  viz., given a chance
to put the premises in  good shape.
The Grand Forks hotel hid held a
license for twelve years without a
break, and he could not believe that
tho commissioners seriously contemplated thus putting it out of busi-
ncBB.    If the commissioners would
reopen thc case he would undertake
that his client would make any repairs necessary to meet tho views of
tho inspector or commissioners. Mr.
Sutton's   ablo  and   temperate plea
was somewhat marred at this point
by Frank Hartinger, the proprietor
of the Grand Forks hotel, getting up
and delivering a stormy   speech of
denunciation.    His excitement and
passion carried him away to an extent that rendered his remarks unintelligible, and the mayor's call for
order was only listened to when the
speaker was out of breath.    A further discussion was carred on,  and
Anally a motion tc adjourn sine die,
by Commissioner McCallum, seconded by Mcintosh, was carried.
Later  in   week   the   mayor and

FRIDAY, JUNE 21,  1907
As the time for nominations to the
Dominion house draws near, the many
political organizations throughout the
country are naming their choice. The
electors of North Toronto, the constituency heretofore represented by
Hon. G. E. Foster, appear anxious to
have him contest a seat elsewhere. It
is suggested that he enter North
York against Hon. A. B. Aylesworth.
This is a polite method of consigning
the erstwhile critic to political oblivion, for in North York he would stand
no more show than the proverbial
snowball, but against the erudite
minister of justice he would scarcely
save his deposit. There has been
something said about switching him
to a safer seat in Toronto, but he is
confronted by the difficulty that there
is a large representation of members
of the Independent Order of Forestei s
in the division named, and Mr. Foster is not anxious to seek the suffrages of these gentlemen at this
this time. Should he succeed in gaining the nomination in North Toronto,
he will not find the same support upon
which he relied when he conducted
his last campaign. At that time the
insurance committee's report had not
been made. Politically, Mr. Foster's
usefulness is gone; he is now only a
source of political embarrassment to
his friends and his party.
Mr. and Mrs. Robert Clark take
this method of thanking their numerous friends and the citizens gener
ally for their expressions of heartfelt
sympathy and deeds of kindness
on the death of their late son, Wil-
Ham Clark.
The court of revision met in the
city hall at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon. Only three unimportant
changes were made in the assessment. One gentleman secured a reduction of 48 cents, but he had to
waste half a day to get it. A slight
change was also made in the assessment of the Great Northern Railway
company's property. An adjournment was taken until this afternoon,
when the business of the court will
be wound up.
The oldti*ners of the valley intend
to celebrate Dominion day by holding a picnic at Newby lake. The
program will include singing, done
ing, boating and bathing.
The project of an all-red line between England and Australasia is
gaining in popularity all over the Dominion, and the more the subject is
discussed the more attractive it becomes. The newspaper throughout
Canada are favorable to it almost
with exception. The advantages to
the country from the Atlantic to the
Pacific cannot be computed. Any
consideration of tho subject involves
an estimate of the effect of diverting
the tourist trallic to the antipodes
from the Mediterranean route to the
Atlantic, across Canada and west from
the Pacific. It involves the carrying
of enormous quantities of freight,
"without breaking bulk. It includes
the educational featnre of advertising
Canada to the world. It opens the
doors for trade between Canada and
he colonies to the south. It places
Canada midway between England and
Australia. The far-sighted, progressive men who conceived the scheme
will erect for themselves enduring
monuments in the esteem of the Canadian people, who will become the
chief beneficiaries.
The Conservative papers of the
province urn making all sorts of excuses for the utter Failure of Premier
McBride's trip to the "foot of the
throne." The result of the jaunt
can be condensed into one short sentence: The premier has had a very
enjoyable pleamre trip at the expense of the province.
The excitement stirred up by the
license commissioners last week is
now gradually subsiding. It appems
to be impossible to handle the
liquor question without exciting rancor. While a reduction of the public houses is undoubtely desirable
in order to give the city a higher
tone of respeciability, and also from
a moral standpoint, yet how to ac
complish this task without doing an
injustice to men who, in some cases,
have put all their worldly possesions
into their businesses, appeals to be
as far from solutiin as it was two
years ago.

the premises of tbe Grand Forks
hotel. It is understood that they
found the condition of the house to
be better than had been anticipated,
and that Mr. Hammar will recommend to the commissioners that a
renewal of Harlinger's license be
made, provided the necessary improvements are made.J
It is not yet definitely known
what action is intended by tbe British American Trust company, owners of the Square hotel. Mr. Peterson, the propietor of the place, stated
yesterday that he had relegated the
matter to the owners, and that he
did not care what steps they took.
City Solicitor Miller appears to
think that there is not much danger
of an action being brought against
the city on account of the cancellation of the licenses. Even if such
a suit should be entered against the
corporation, he feels confident that
the city would win it.

Good miners are still wanted in
the Boundary, and a big bunch of
them can get employment very
quickly at top wages.
Men are steadily coming into the
Boundary, attracted by the high
wages and steady work offered, and
things are nenrly in normal xhnpe
again as regards the mining Indus
One nf the really large coppnri
ledges of the Boundary is being
opened up on the Greyhound mine,

of Rossland, manager of the Rathmullen Mines, Ltd. Thus far the
work done has been decidedly encouraging.

Mrs. A. P. Ferguson, a well known

Catarrhozone. Her statement is convincing: "Although I was troubled
for years it was only recently I tried
Catarrhzone. When an attack started
I got out my inhaler and invariably
got quick relief. Feeling satisfied Ca-
tarrhozoue would cure, I continued
the treatment till one bottle was finished. I didn't use more because I
was cured, and the asthma has never
returned." Catarrhozone is sure death

Mr. J. C. Taylor, of this city, and
Miss Mabel Gilmour, of Victoria,
were married in the Baptist church,
Nelson, last Wednesday evening. The
bride was attended by her sister, Miss
Edith Gilmour. The weddiug was a
quiet one, only a few intimate friends
of the contracting parties be*ng present. Later the wedding party sat
down to a specially prepared dinner
in the drawing room of the Strathcona
hotel. The newly married pair left
the same night for a short wedding
trip on the Arrow lakes. Mr' Taylor
is an employee in A. D. Morrison's
jewelry store in this city. Although
he has been a resident of the city but
a few months, he has made a host of
friends here. Mr. and Mrs. Taylor
have returned to this city, and will
take up their residence in Donald Mc-
Callum's house.
The adjourned enquiry into the
death of Emma Donnan, who died
shortly after being struck by a stick
thrown by her sister, was continued
before Judge Cochrane on Tuesday,
After reading the depositions a nd after
full consideration of all the circumstances, City Solicitor Miller, who had
been authorized by the council to act
for the city, recommended the dismissal of the case, which was accord
ingly done. The matter is generally
regarded as a lamentable accident,
and the deep sympathy of the community has been free extended to the
Donnan family.
Messrs. A. E. Slater and T. Lives-
ley, of Nepinka, Man., were in the
city last Sauturday. These gentlemen
are wealthy farmers of the prairie
province, and aro looking for a location in the west, where the climate is
more to their liking. They are old
friends of John Temple, who took
them for a drive through the valley.
They left for' the coast Saturday evening, but as they were very favorably
impressed with the country, they may
return here.
The regular statutory meeting of
the licensing commissioners for the
Grand Forks district was held at the
court house in this city last Saturday
afternoon. There were nine applications for renewal of licenses, all of
which were grunted, No applications
were received for new licenses.
Jas. H. Kennedy, of Midway, chi- £
engineer of the V., V. it E., was in
tho city on Wednesday. He stated
tho bridge across the Similkameen
river, which was partially carried out
by the high wator this spring, has
been repaired and that tracklaying in
the direction of Keremeos has been resumed.

Hard Case to Overcome
No longer necessary to suffer from
muscular rheumatism. Every case can
be cured. Ferrozone is unfailing, as
proved by David Johnston of Or-
mond, Ont. "My wife was a dreadful
suffi nr," he writes, "For two years
she could scarcely do any work. Her
knuckles and joints swelled, causing
torture. To get up or down stairs
was impossible. She took box after
box of Ferrozone and rubbed the sore
places with Nerviline. Improvement
started and she mended fast. Today
she is quite cured and we thank Ferrozone for her recovery." No remedy
more popular with doctors than Ferrozone; it does cure. 50c per box at all
(Concluile.il frnm Page One)
man could also do small jobs of sidewalk and street repairing. No action
was taken.
Aid. Hardy said that in view of the
fact that the city was threatened with
a lawsuit on account of the commissioners cutting out two of the liquor
licenses, was about time for the council to change its city solicitor. By
discharging the present occupant of
the office and appointing a new officer,
he felt satisfied that a saving of $300
per year could be made. Even if no
action was taken, the city would lose
considerable revenue by the curtailment of the licenses, and a saving of
the amount named was worth considering. Pressed for a reason why
he desired the present solicitor discharged, Mr Hardy said it was not
not necessary to state any grounds for
his action. He was convinced that
the city could save $300 a pear, and
that was sufficient cause for the contemplated change. G. M, Fripp,
local manager of the British American
Trnst company, which owns one of the
properties affected by the cancellation
of the licenses, was present, and stated
that his company had instructed its
solicitor to take action, but he did not
know what action was contemplated.
City Solicitor Miller could not spe
why Aid. Hardy should connect hi>
discharge with a threatened lawsuit
against the citv, and demanded an ex
planation, Mr. Han y refused to ex
plain, contenting himse f by m ying
that the motive of his action was
b is 'd on a saving to the city. Aid
Horner suggested Unit possibly Aid
Hardy meant that if action was taken
against the city.Mi. Miller would con
duct the case to win, and that the
city would save money by losing the
case. Mr. Miller said that was just
the explanation he wanted. He contended that no sane lawyer would enter suit against the city on account of
the cancellation of the licenses. Aid.
Woodland said that the only fault he
had to find with Mr. Miller was that
he was in the habit of putting off his
work. Mr. Miller also took exception to this assertion. The council
he said, had never hail to adjourn a
single meeting on account of his work
not being ready. Aid. Horner was
satisfied that the city could get a solicitor for $50 a month. Mayor
Hammar had been informed that the
citv was in luck to get a man like Mr.
Miller for $75 per month. The question of having the duties of the city
solicitor done by piecework was also
discussed, but was abandoned, as one
of the aldermen made the assertion
that that plan would probably cost
the city $500 a month. On motion
of Aid. Woodland and Homer, the
city solicitor's salary was reduced to
$50 per month, beginning July 1st
Aid. Woodland gave notice that at
the next regular meeting he would introduce a tax sale bylaw.
The matter of appointing a new
poundmaster was livid over till the
next meeting.
The health and relief was instructed to look after the matter of having
certain drains opened up in the lower
portion of the city.
The council met again at 2:30 this
