On motion of. Aid. Clements and
McDonald, the communication was
was filed. The aldermen did not
like complying with this request,
in /lew of tbe fact it tbat it was
claimed that the grounds had been
used for herding cattle in all summer.
A communication from Sam Baker
stated that he bad now recovered
sufficiently to assume bis duties aa
driver of the city team. Cbarlea
Buckle also sent in a tender foi thn
position of city teamster at 890 per
month.   Both communications were
-laid over.

tion, consideration of the matter was

The chairman of tho wator and
light committee reported that tbey
had been requested by P. T. McCallum to place a value on the old Columbia water tank. They bad quoted
it at 175. The committee had also
quoted him a price of 15 per b.p. for
for electric power. On motion,
these recommendations were approved. Tbe chairman of the committee also reported that the Kettle
River  Lumber   company  required
about 15 h.p. of electric power, and
they had decided to charge on that
basis. This rate was approved by
the council.
Mr. J. C. MacDonald, of the steel
works, made a request for a settlement ofthe bonus voted the company
last spring. On motion of Aid.
Spraggett, the clerk was authorized
to draw an order of 1600 on the city
treasury in favor of the company.
The water and light committee
recommended that a rate of 85 per
month for water lie established for
the steel works. Mr. J. C. MacDonald thought this rate was too high,
The works, he said, did not con.
suine as much water us a private
family. On motion of Aid. Gaw
arid McDonahl, a perment rate of 84
per ujouth wns decided on.
On motion of Aid. McDonald and
Clements, the council decided to
cancel the present rate fur electric
lights with the Yale hotel, and to
place the house on the same basis as
the other hotels. This resolution
brought out a great deal of dis
cussipn. Aid. Lequime said some
inducement should be offered a first-
class hotel.
Aid. Clements thought that tbe B.
C. Telephone company was charging
the city too much for its phones, in
view of the fact that the company
bad some of its wires strung on the
city's electric light poles.
'On motion of Aid. Clements and
Spraggett, tbe clerk was instructed to
notify tho B. C. Telephone company
that the city does not now require a
a night service for the fire alarm system.
Aid.'McDonald thought the Dominion government should be requested to erect a postoffice building
in this city. The question was rele*
gated to the public meeting which is
to be held tonight.
Tbe fire department wus granted
the privilege of training the city
team three or four nights per month
for fire department work.
The question of the construction
of the Fourth street traffic bridge
was then taken up. The clerk reported that he had received two or
three enquiries about the debentures
The clerk read a letter from the pub
lie works engineer, ih which thai
official stated that the government
would prefer to have the city call for
tenders for the bridge and to have it
constructed under the supervision of
the city, Mr. Unhurt Mcintosh to
oversee the work for the government.
Aid. Clements *noved, seconded
by Aid. Spraggett, that the government be asked to call for tenders for
the construction of thu bridge. Aid
Cooper amended this hy asking tbe
council to instruct the clerk to Advertise lor lenders for building tho
structure, tonders to ha accompanied
by a certified cheque for 5 per cunt
of the amount, and to clone December 3. A vnte on the amendment was lost.
Aid. McDonald moved tlmt the
bridge be built by the city by day
labor, and that as much of the material as possible be purchased in
the city, but he failed to secure a
seconder.
Aid. Cooper moved, seconded by
Aid. Lequime, that the city clerk be
instructed to advertise for tenders for
the construction of the bridge according to the plans and specifications, tenders to be accompanied by
a certified cheque for the amount.
Carried.

Public Meeting In City Hall
Tonight to Discuss Important Topics
Erection of New Steel Furnace
Building  at Smelter to

The weather tonight, no matter how
inclement, should not keep any one
who lias the best inteiests of the city
at heart away from the meeting in
the city hall. Different topics of importance to the city's future welfare
will be discussed:—and the discussion
is open to everybody. It is not often
that a meeting is called for the common good, and this being the purpose
of the "call" for tonight all citizens
should attend.
The Grand Forks Steel Structural
Works expect to start work at the
Granby smelter on or about the 10th

A New Copper Find (?)
It is ever been an open question in
all the geological surveys of the world
as to exactly how far the geologists of
the survey should refer, in their field
reports, to private undertakings. That
the question is a most intricate one,
nobody will deny.    By different Gov
ernments it has been treated in different manners, and this, very naturally,
for the kind of report furnished by
a geological field-otliccr must, to a
large extent, depend on the mining
Irws of the country for whioh the officer is working. In those countries
such as New Zealand and Australia,
where a large reward is given for the
discovery of a new field, the government geologist frequently advises as
to whether the reward has or has not
heen earned. In some countries, the
governments are prepared to help the
miuer—or the mining company—to
the extent of sinking a shaft so many
hundred feet, and in such cases it is
usual to consult the geological survey
as to the prospect of success.
In Canada, however,,, where the
prospector gets very little encouragement from anyone or anything except
his own stout heart and the knowledge
that the country has hardly yet been
scratched, our geological survey has
been chary as regards including in ils
reports any matter affecting private
interest-,, and especially careful not
to tread on anybody's toes. • We are
pleased, theiefore, to notice in this
year's survey report, the following
very startling paragraph, ■■ which occurs in a report by Dr. J. A. Dresser,
on St. Bruno mountain, Quebec. Dr.
Dresser has made a special study. of
the copper-bearing rocks of the eastern townships, and is, therefore, likely
to know what he is talking about.
He writes: "On the sixth lots of
ranges 2 and 3, of the same township
a small amount of chalcopyrite two
inches wide by two feet long, was vis
ible for a time. A cutting of less
than two feet into the rock removed
all the ore as far as could bo seen at
the time of my visit. I am credibly
informed that this property has been
sold for 812,000, $8,000 of whioh has
been paid in cosh to parties in tho
state of Connecticut, and that a joint
stock company capitalized at $500,-
000, has there been formed to acquire
and operate the property. This occurrence, like many other copper
stringers throughout this belt, is of no
economic importance."
It is dohbtful if the report has been
published in time to do much good,
but it seems that here is precisely the
kind of information that the public
requires. Of course, there are several
argument's against the advisability of
publishing such statements in a general report, but none of these arguments gainsay the main fact that the
public—throii*'.! the geological survey
pay geologists to report on the geology
— and principally the economic geology—of the country—and that they
expect a field officer if he comes across an ovident swindle to report it.
The mention of such swindles docs
not necessarily mean any interference
with legitimate private interests: the
failure to point them out docs necessarily mean an immense amount of
harm to the district in which they occur. How many mineral deposits are
lying idle today in Canada for reasons
quite unconnected with the payable
nature of the mine! Several fields
that we could mention are lying idle
—not hecauso they cannot bo profitably worked, but because the public
will not supply the money to work
them. And why? For the simple
reason that the public has'been gulled
so often that they are not prepared to
take another risk.   -
Wo believe that the geological survey, in showing up such cases, could
very materially help "the mineral induslry in Canada.
ROUTE IS DECIDED
Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern to Build Via Tula-
meen
Prospect of Reaching Princeton Within the Next Six
Months
"The question that has agitated the
public mind and caused all kinds of
opinions to be expressed ever since it
was announced that Jim Hill intended
to build a line of railway into the
8imilkameen and on to the coast by
way of the Hope mountains," says the
Similkameen Star, "has been what
route would be followed to the coast
—the Tulameem or the Similkameen.
Survey parties have heen in the field
for some years endeavoring to find the
most feasible line, and little was
known as to the outcomo of their
work, although there are a few wise
ones who now say 'I told you so.'
"Major Anderson, purchasing agent
for the Great Northern railway, who
arrived in town on Sunday, is the authority for the statement that this
question has now been settled and
that what is known as the T.ulameen
route has been decided on as tiie ono
to be followed to the coast. While
here the Major closed for the right of
.way through the town and also secured running rights through a portion
of Gulliford's ranch, which goes to
show that the railway will run to this
point and then tunnel to the Simil-
kamien. The land secured from the
Townsite company includes part of
block 26 and the whole of blocks 27,
2S, 29, 30.J11, 32 and 34, lying between Endcliffe and Burton avenues.
"With the route to the coast decided on and the right of Way through
the town settled, it is stated that
construction from Oroville (to which
point the rails will be laid within a
foi tnight) will be pushed with all possible speed with every reasonable
prospect of reaching Princeton within the next fix months. As everyone
knows, this will mean big things for
Princeton, as she will be railway
headquarters until connection is made
to the coust, during which time thousands of dollars will be spent there."
Regarding the new bridge at Midway the Greenwood Lodge says: The
work oh the new bridge across the
Kettle river at Midway, has been
hanging lire for some time, owing to
u luck of 1 umber and timber, Early
in August, Government Agent McMynn asked for tenders for timher
und lumber for the bridge from a
number of sawmills. The Kettle
River Lumber company was the only
one making* a bid, which was aceepted
on the 28th of August, the company
agreeing to furnish the necessary material within 11 days of acceptance of
their tender. Foreman Wilhurst then
pushed the building of tho piers as
quickly as possible, ordered his iron
and got everything on the ground
ready U> complete tho work as soon as
the lumber arrived, The lumber has
not yet arrived. It is a great inconvenience to tho public traveling by
team between Midway and Ferry to
havo to ford the stream which is fully
18 inches in depth ut some places in
the ford, and it is nearly 100 feet in
width. Don't Go

Particularly gratifying to Canadians
must be the following table issued by
liradstreets of the gross earnings of
railways on this continent for the nine
months ending Sept. 30. The prosperity of the country is reflected in its
railways, and that the Canadian Par
cific leads the list is but confirmation
of the wave of plenty that is sweep
ing over Canada. When one stops to
consider that the main source of revenue for Canada's trunk line is moving the golden harvest of the West,
the showing of the figures is all the
The Canadian line handles little of
the ore thnt swells the revenues of its
competitors in the south, that great
source of income for a t'liihyty is as
yet almost undeveloped in the Dominion. When, in u few years, this is
added to the stream of golden grain—
which at that time will he moving
westward as well as eastward—Canada's railways will have even a still
more satisfactory showing. The figures issued by Bradstreets are as follows for the nine months ending September 30:
Canadian Pacilic 010,960*715
Northern Pacific     7^86,832
Baltimore ct Ohio    7,195,853
Great Northern     7,1(1*1,310
New York Central     5,084,839
The four last named  are  for eight
months.
The band turned out last night tu

CITY NEWS
John A. McDonald, a brother of
Joseph McDonald, arrived in the city
last week from Boston, and has taken
a position with the carpenter force at
the smelter. He hud been engaged
in tho insurance business in the above
named city for thirteen years, but do-
cided to make a change for the betterment of his health. The two brothers
had not seen each other for twonty-
seven years.
Duncan Ross, M.P., passed through
the city today on his way to Ottawa.

the popular and genial member for
Grand Forks in the local legislature,
has acquired a large business in Victoria, and on the occasion of his departure from the Boundary received a
splended send-off at the hands of his
friends of both parties. George is a
good fellow, whom it is a pleasure to
meet; he has deserved well of the constituency, which he has represented
for the last three years, and will no
doubt become an active and useful
member of the party in the city of his
adoption.
John Holmes, a miner at the Gran-
hy mines, was fatally injured while at
work last Sunday. A heavily loaded
mine oar passed over and crudhed him
so badly that he expired a few min-
utos after being taken to the hospital.
He was a member of Phoenix Miners'
union, No. 8, having joined a few
weeks ago.
(Concluded from First Page.)
On the discussion on the matter
Aid. McDonald was strongly in favor
of day labor, while Mayor Hutton
thought it wOuld be foolish to refer
the subject back the government,
He did not think day iabor would be
satisfactory. The other 'aldermen
were in favor of the city advertising
for tenders.
The council decideg that it would
support a by-law closing Spokane
avenue, providing the written consent of the lownsite company and
other interested property owners is
secured.

A Question Often Asked
Why so many people feel woi* e
after taking pill than before! Trouble
is that drastic pills are used. No remedial action is obtained, the bowels
are irritated and dreadful constipation
follows. In using Dr. Hamilton'ti
Pills you are scarcely conscious of
having taken medicine Although
Dr. Hamilton's Pills do .regulate the
bowels, stimulate normal action of the
glands, and create neither nausea,
griping or violent action, thev are
very mild, positively guaranteed for
biliousness, indigestion, Btoiuauh. liver
and kidney ills. For a safe family
nill rely on Dr. Hamilton's; 25o per

The grafter is known by the "con"
penny he keeps.
Advertise and the world trades
with you, do not and it forgets you.
Although a druggist does not deal
in flowers it is usually at his place the
ladies gel their bloom.
If the average'politician had the
same ambition for work after being
elected flint he displays while landing
an otlice it woud bu better forth
country.
One  natural  rose  on  the cheek is
w.irth two on any bush.
At the age of five the "itid" imagines he known more th in all his ancestors; at fifteen he turiieth his foot
steps to whence comes the klink of
the printer's mallet; he hitteth the
boss for a job, and when the first day
in the shop has spent itself so also has
his know-it-all dream—and he is only
the "devil." He throweth in his first
case and there is an awful mix-up
and an abundance of strong language
from the foreman; he setteth his first
stick of type*and in dumping it pies
the Pat Burns meat ad the ad man
just finished; he doesn't think that
Greenwood, Phoenix and Eholt should
be capitalized and receiveth a severe
rebuke from the editor who owneth
milling interests in all these towns;
he receiveth a small raise and in wild
delight kisseth the lady compositor
who throweth her slipper at hiin, but
which hitteth a galley of type and
maketh a mess of it; he is fired and
seeketh another job; he worketh there
for five years and again is handed his
walking papers because he persisteth
in capitalizing ladies' aid society and
smelter; he commenceth to think the
world is cold and cruel and also realized] that he has yet a whole lot to
learn, and once again he turneth his
footsteps that he might be taught the
lessons that every day has in store.
Resign From the Worry Club
Life is a rush, but we can't all get
there together. In consequence, we
worry—Can't help it because nerves
are weak, vitality is bnrnt up and
there's no staying power. Cut out
the worry part and BUILD UP. Let
Ferrozone help you. It's a most
stengthening nutritive tonic. Fills
the blood and iron, supplies the building material for worn out organs, generates the sort of vitality that makes
you want to do things. No medicine
more hilpful for men, women and
ih Idren who need strength and staying power. Try Ferrozone, 50c per
box at all dealers.
