The regular meeting of the city

chamber Monday evening, Mayor
Hammar, Aid. Donaldson, Horner,
McCallum, Mcintosh and Woodland being present,      t
A communication was read from
Dr. Fagan, provincial health officer,
inviting tbe council to send a delegate to the annual meeting of the
British Columbia Anti-Tuberculosis
Society, which is to meet iu Victoria
■ soon, and also asking the council to*
request our member in the legislature to attend the convention.
A letter was read from James J.
Hill, in answer to the resolution recently adopted by tbe council urging
the Great Northern to establish a
divisional point in this city. Mr.
Hill writes thai the company would
be glad to do anything that would
help Grand Forks, and he felt that
tbe* efforts of the road in the Boundary had helped this district. All
permanent provisions, however,
could be much better settled when
the line is completed to Vancouver.
In fact, it would be difficult to make
any permincnt adjustment. until
that is the case.

The finance committee recommended tbe payment of the usual

Mr. Spier was present, and addressed the council at length on educational matters. At the rate the
children were coming in at present,
a ninth grade would have to be
opened up in September, which
would necessitate larger school quarters. He advocated issuing school
debentures and adding two wings to
the central building, and asked the
council to authorize the trustees to
call for plans, specification and estimates of costs. . i
In answer to a question, Mr. Spier
explained the duties of the truant
officer. If the chief of police had
time to act in that capacity, he was
the proper person for the position.
The work was not being doile' satisfactorily at present, as the streets
were crowded with children who
ought to be in school.
In reference to the new building,
Mr. Spier said it was to the oest interests of the community to have tbe
schools centralized in Grand Forks,
rather than have a number of small
rural schools. At present tbe city
had the best schools in the province. Whether the rural districts
could be included in the issuance of
school bonds, he was not sufficiently
versed in law to tell. Tbe board bad
written the government for information on this subject, and had been
referred to Section 14 of the School
Act, which was rather ambiguous.
The mayor thought the government should assist the city to enlarge the school building. As the 5*
mill assessment was not sufficient to
educate the children, the city was
entitled to a cash grant. Referring
to the cost of having plans and specifications for the proposed buildings
submitted, he said it would probably amount to about (500.
On motion, the school estimates

council that there was an nre lamp in

THE 20,000. CLUB
Committee Appointed to Endeavor to Secure a Grant
for a Fair
Railway  Matters Discussed.
Committee Named to Draft
The regular meeting of the 20,000
olub was held in the city last Friday
night, President Hanington occupying
the chair. There was a good attendance of members.
Wm. Spier, chairman of the advertising committee, reported that the
club had cleared $49 from the entertainment given by the Palmatier Sisters. He was firmly convinced that
the club could make a financial success of any attraction given under its
auspices. The club, he added, now
had all the necessary supplies to do
The election of the new executive
resulted as follows: N. L. Mclnnis,
Wm. Spier, W. H. M. May, W. J.
Cook, S. T. Hall, Neil McCallum, J.
S. Jost, A. E. Smith, Wallace Chalmers, Chas. Fraser, F. M. Kerby, G.
A. Evans.
A. E. Smith thought that more energetic measures should be taken to secure new members, as the roll was not
increasing as rapidly as it(should.
Capt. Disbrowe exhibited a fine
sample of tobacco that had been
grown close to the city, and thought it
would be a good idea if the club would
make known to the outside world the
abaptability of the soil and climate of
the valley for the cultivation of this
staple commodity. About a ton of
the weed was grown and cured in the
valley lost year.
A. B. Sloan Sloan suggested the
appointment of a committee to correspond with the provincial government and endeavor to secure a grant
for a fair in this city next fall. Mr.
Burrell explained that in order to ob
tain a grant for this purpose, it would
first, be necessary to organize an agri
cultural association. Government
grants to assist fruit and agricultural
exhibits were usually equal to the
amount subscribed by the citizens.
Mr. May said the members present it
the meeting could form themselves
into an agricultural association, and
Mr. Neil McCallum was also of the
opinion that if we were to hold a fair in
the fall it was none too soon to com
mjnee operations at once. On motion
of Mr. Slonn, a committee of six was
appointed to look into tbe feasibility
of carrying out the project. The chair
appointed M. Burrell' A. B. Sloan,
Neil McCallum, Wm. Spier, F. E.
Cooper and Ernest Miller is such
Neil McCalluin brought up the
question of urging the Great Northern
Railway company to establish its first
division out of Spokano at Grand
Forks. The officials were yet undecided
on this matter, and the time was
nearly ripe for them to decide. The
t iwn that mude the strongest pull generally carried off tbe plum. History
showed that railways could be influenced as well as smaller concerns.
Capt. Disbrowe suggested that the
sime action be taken in respect lo the
C.P.R., arid Mr. McCalluin said  that
Mr. Busteed had always maintained
that Grand Forks was the natural divisional point for that road. W. J.
Cook stated that the Great Northern
at present made Grand Forks a terminal point for its freight business.
On motion of Messrs. Cooper and
Sloan, a committee was appointed to
draft a resolution on the subject. The
chair named Wm. Spier, A. B, W.
Hodges, N. McCalluin and M. Burrell
as members of the committee.
Mr. Cooper said the committee
ought not to overlook the Kettle Valley line, but should induce that company to hold its t.ains in this over
night. The committee should act
generally in railway matters.
Capt. Disbrowe drew attention to
the fact that the railways were selling
settlers' tickets from Winnipeg to
Spokane for (19, and an effort should
be made to secure the same rate to
Boundary points.
After the adjournment of the club
a meeting of the executive was held,
when tho following sub-committees
were appointed: Advertising, N. L.
Mclnnis, Wm. Spier, Neil McCallum,
A. E. Smith, J. S. Jost, F. M. Kerby; membership, W. J. Cook, W, H.
M. May, G. A. Evans W. C. Chalmers, S. T. Hall and Chas. Fraser.
A. E. Smith suggested that the
club give a "smoke.'" in the near future. Tbe proposition was received
with favor, and the names of A. E.
Smith, Wm. Spier and W. J. Cook
were added to the entertainment committee. The committee was authorized to proceed with the arrangements
for the "smoker."

The death of Joseph Wasson, aged
70 years, occurred at his home in the
West end last Saturday night, after
a brief illness. Deceased was an
old-timer of this valley, having resided here for about eight years, and
was universally honored and esteemed
by all who knew hiin. Four daughters—Mrs. E. Spraggett, Mrs. Frank
Ruckle, and the Misses Sarah and
Eliza Wasson—survive him. The
funeral was held on Monday, and was
very largely attended. The remains
were interred in the city cemetery.

Adopt Resolution in Favor of
Fair and Pledge Hearty
A meeting largely attended by the
representative farmers of the valley
was held in the city hall Wednesday
evening for the purpose of organizing a farmers' institute.
M. Burrell was elected temporary
chairman, and on taking his seat he
expressed the opinion that time was
ripe for organization.
Mr. E. Spraggett stated that there
were forty paid-up members on the
roll. He fully explained the Farmers' Institute Act. The government
gave a certain amount of support to
institutes for fruit and agricultural
exhibits. In some instances the
amount donated had been as high as
(1000. The institute formed here
would be a subdivision of the Osoyoos district.
A lengthy discussion ensued
whether to organize a farmers' institute or an agricultural association.
Nearly everybody in tke room
thought it would be advisable to
start in with an institue, as the
members had subscribed tbeir names
with that understanding, and that
idea finally prevailed.
J. L. Manly moved, seconded by
H. B. Cannon, that we organize an
institute to be known as tbe Kettle
Valley Farmers' Institute, embracing the territory comprised in the
political divisions of Grand Forks
and Grenwood districts.
The resolution was adopted by a
unanimous vote.
The following officers were elected:
President, M. Burrell; vice president,
J. D. Honsberger; secretary, 8. T.
Hall; treasurer, Fred Clark; directors,
Joseph Manly, Frank Coryell, Geo.
Hansen, Tom Powers, J. Itooke, H.
B. Cannon, R. Lawson.
The advisability of holding a fair
in this city next fall was discussed
at length. H. W. Collins and Wm.
Spier gave their experiences in connection with exhibitions of this nature on a small scale in the east.
Moved by E. Spraggett, seconded
by H. W. Collins, that, in the opinion of this meeting, it is desirable to
hold a horticultural and agricultural
fair in tbis city next fall, and we
pledge the enterprise our hearty support.
The resolution was adopted without a dissenting voice.
The Institute starts out with a
membership of fifty, as follows: H. C.
Kerman, Joe Manly, L. Vaughan, S.
T. Hall, H. W. Collins, B. Jewell, J.
D. Honsberger, R. A. Brown, P. A.

FRIDAY, MARCH 22,  1907
It appears that the 20,000 club
and the Farmers' Institute were organized none too soon to advertise
Grand Forks and the Kettle valley.
A writer in the March number of the
Fruit-Grower, perhaps the leading
publication of its class on ihe continent, gives an extended write-up of
the fruit growing industry in British
Columbia. The coast, Okanagan and
Kootenay districts are given due
prominence, but we look in vain for
any mention of the Boundary district.
And yet the Boundary is one of the
few districts in the province that has
successfully raised fruit on a commercial basis. We have here the second
largest orchard—the Covert estate—
in British Columbia. This is the oldest orchard in the interior of province.
It was started in 1885 by Mr. W. H.
Covert. Today it contains over 11,-
000 trees, and more will be planted
this spring. Besides this mammoth
plantation, there are innumerablesmall-
er orchards in the valley, all of them
growing the finest quality of fruit and
making handsome profits on thc investments. As an illustration of how
other sections are stealing our thunder in the fruit growing business, it
may be stated that for advertising
purposes we are generally tacked onto
the West Kootenay district; and Nelson takes the credit of being the cen-
* tie of that district. And in former
years fruit grown on the Covert estate
has been purchased by the Coldstream
ranch, in the Okanagan, and shipped
abroad as packed by tbat company,
without any intimation as to where
it was grown. It is against these
methods that we enter an emphatic
protest. We want the outside world
to know that fruit shipped from this
city has been grown in the Kettle
valley, and that Grand Forks is the
commercial centre of that valley.
composed mainly of horticultur sts.
there is no reason why it shoulil not
bear good fruit. If is an institution
that has been needed in tins valley for
a number of years.
It has been suggested by a number
of citizens that the 20,000 club and
other eivic organizations start an agitation to have Smelter lake cleared of
stnmps, logs and other debris during
low water. The suggestion is good ;
but the word "action" should be substitution for "agitation." The carrying
out of this plan would give us a very
pretty pleasure resort at the very door
of the city—a thing that we stand
greatly in need of. The expense of
having this work done should be comparatively small, when the amount of
advertising the city would derive
from such a beauty spot is taken into
The labor situation in tbe East
Kootenay coal fields again lookB very
threatening, and today will probably
decide whether it is to be peace or
war. As we expressed an opinion on
this subject a week or so ago, further
comment will be withheld until the
crisis is reached.
Southeast Kootenay and Yale districts produced 37,097,000 pounds of
copper, valued at *1*7,415,800, in 1906.
Most of this enormous output was
mined and treated in the Boundary
district, and by far the greater portion
of the Boundary output came from
Grand Forks.
The Coast Is Prosperous
Mr. Ernest Miller, who has just returned from a two weeks' visit to the
coast cities, tells an interesting
story of the present prosperity of that
section of the province.
"On former visits to the coast,"
said he in a chat with The Sun man
yesterday, "I have often marveled at
the wonderful strides made in the upbuilding of Vancouver, Victoria and
New Westminster, but on no other
occasion have the signs of general
prosperty made so deep an impression
on ine as on my present trip. Even
staid old Victoria is enjoying a
healthy boom. Vancouver, which has
gained an enviable reputation all over
this broad land for its progressiveness,
is going ahead by bounds and leaps.
Fine residences and big business
blocks are to be seen on every hand
in course of erection. 1 was also
greatly impressed with the activity of
the real estate market and building
operations in New Westminister. The
general public of the two last mentioned cities appear to be confident in
looking over the situation, that it will
not long be before these towns are
joined together by one continuous
"I attribute this life and bustle,"
he continued, "partly to the fact that a
great deal of American capital is being invested in the coast cities, and
partly on account of the influx of settlers from eastern Canada, Manitobaand
the northwest. Although real estate
prices seem high to a man coming
from the interior of the province,when
compared with the figures charged for
realty in the cities south of the international boundary line they are extremely low.
"New Westminster possesses many
desirable features, as a consequence of
which property is advancing rapidly.
It is the only city on the coa't that
owns its water frontage, and this has
been taken up for miles for mill sites.
There is also considerable talk at
present about tho Great Northern establishing large shops at that place.
Aside from these advantages, the city
possesses unequaled educational facilities, including the Columbian college.
It is also blessed with an ideal climate.
"From information gathered while
I was at the coast, I learned that a
vast number of people, who have tired
of the rigors of the eastern winters,
are coming to this province this sum
raer. A strong effort should be made
by the citizens of Grand Forks to secure a portion of these settlers for this
"While I was pleased to note the
evidences of prosperity on the coast,"
concluded Mr. Miller, "I am equally
glad to get back to Grand Forks and
the salubrious zephyrs of the Kettle
valley. With a united effort, and a
liberal amount of publicity, I am confident that this district will soon enjoy an era of activity riyaling that ut
present prevailing at the coast."

Another Great Discovery
A well known gentleman in Black
Bay, Ont., Mr. John Cowan has discovered an absolute specific for rhuo*
mutism, and writes: "I was affected
with sciatica and chronic rheumatism
which I contracted years ago. The
disease bad a great hold on my blood,
and it was hard to make any impression on it. Reading of Ferroione, I
was' convinced of its merit, and it's
certainly the best I have ever tried.
Why, it just drove away the rheumatism." Even stiffened old suffei e-s will
experience quick results. The reason
is that Ferrozone acts through the
blood'aud thereby dostroys the cuuso
of the disease- Price 50c per Ixix at

The Deal Made to Hear
Deafness, because usually due to
catarrh, is quite curable. In a thousand cases this is proved absolutely
true. Success invariably attends the
use of Catarrhozone, which has cured
catarrhal deafness of twenty-five years
standing. Penetrating through the
passage of the ear, the soothing vapor
of Catarrhozone relieves the inflammation, destroys the seeds of catarrh and
thereby allows nature to re-assist herself. Try Catarrhozone yourself, 25c
and j? 1.00 sizes sold by all dealers.
