Oity Voters' List Is
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chambers Monday evening,
Mayor Fripp and Aid. Clark, Miller,
McArdle, McCallum and Rutherford being in attendance.
A communication Irom President
James W, Warren, of the Kettle
Valley line, in reply to a complaint
made by the council of trains
obstructing traffic at street crossings,
stated that the company had no desire to do so, and that the matter
would be looked into.
A letter was read from the League
of British Columbia Municipalities
asking the council to send delegates
to the annual convention of the association.
The clerk was instructed to com-
nmncate with ths railway commissioners in reference to the dangerous
condition to 'traffic of the C. P. R.
crossing near the Kettle river.
The chairman of the board of
works reported that the repairs to
the fire hall had been completed.
Provieions had also been made to
secure the right of way for a road to
Peter Pare's ranch, and to open up
the road and construct a culvert at
the slough below the cemetery.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that an extra mun had been employed in the
electrical department during the
month of November. During that
time sixteen houses, comprising 108
lights, had been w red, besides tho
work done in the new Province
hotel. The blowing oui of the regulator at the substation had put the
lights out of business for forty-five
minutes last Sarurday night, and the
burning out of fuse on Thursday
evening had caused a short stoppage.
The report was adopted.
On motion of Aid. Clark and McArdle, ihe council decided to secure
the right of way for a road to Peter
Pare's ranch, and to open up the
The chief of police submitted his
monthly report, which wiib ordered
filed. Total road tax collected to
date, i}154; dog tax, 861. He expected to complete the collections
early this month. The fire chief's
monthly report was also read and
filed. Ho recommended sleigh runners for the hose wagon, but the
council Aid not think "it would be
advisable to adopt this recommendation. All the hydrants, forty-three
in number, had been tested and
salt put in-for the winter. ,
On motion of Aid. Clark, the report of the ehief of police in reference to road and dog taxes was re-
terred to the police commissioners,
with the request tbat they instruct
the chief to make all the collections
before the end of the present month.
Aid. McArdle and McCallum were
appointed a court of revision to revise the municipal voters' lisf.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that his
committee, the city electrician ai d
the city solicitor had all the information necessary for Mr. O'Farrell to
complete the city map. Mr. O'Farrell was present at the meeting, and
addressed the council. He wanted
850 for adding the Ruckle addition
to the map, and $50 for coming over
from Rossland to finish it. On motion of Aid. Miller, Jhe finance committee and the city solicitor were
instructed to meet Mr. O'Furrell and
to make what arrangements they
deemed advisable to have the wc>rk
completed, and to incur the necessary expenses in connection therewith. '
The chairman of the health and
relief comittee thought an investigation should be made as to the unusually large number of fataliities
among infants last fall, and the
council thought it would be advisable to discuss tho matter with the
provincial health ollicer.
Aid. Woodland's by-law defining
the duties of city officials was read a
first and second time, considered in
committee, and then under a suspension of the rules it passed its
third reading.
The council then adjourned.

B. G, Municipalities   |
Several important changes relative to civic, and municipal matters
wero laid before the Provincial Government by tbe executive of the
Union of B. C. Municipalities this
week at Victoria.
A change in the term of municipal office was asked for by the executive, from one year to two years.
It was pointed out that the present
system prevented anything like continuity of policy, and that as a matter of fact it had become a practice
in many places to give a mayor or
reeve a second term on this account.
What is proposed is thut mayors
shall be elected for two years and
aldermen for the same term, hall of
the aldermen to retire annually. In
order to meet the views of sonje who
prefer the one-year term it is suggested that before the new plan
would be put in force it be submitted to the ratepayers ai an annual
Control of private clubs was
another mutter taken up by the executive. This is, of course, to a
number of organizations which abuse
the ekih privileges they possess in
common with respectable clubs.
The executive was informed that the
Government had decided to introduce legislation on this Bubjcct ut
the coming session.
It wus ulso usked ,Uiat the holding of courts of revi™ n be placed
earlier than at present; "lhat the
school rate be increased from five
mills to ten, and that registrars be
authorized to register tax sale deeds.
Rulings were requested on the meaning of doubtful sections in the
Municipal Clauses Act.

This includes band nights. The
band nights will be on Tuesdays
am? Fridays. Tickets can be had at
Woodland & Co.'s and Clark Bros'.
The newly organized hoekey club
and the executive of the Grand Forks
Skating Rink association both met
in the city hall on Tuesday evening.
The hockeyists perfected their organization. RoyvCurran has been
selected as manager. A committee
from the hockey club had a conference with wifh the rink people, and
it is stated that the latter gnnted
all the concessions asked for by the
hockeyists, thus making the prospects for the sport during the coming winter very bright.
The Phoenix Hockey cluh has
been reorganized, with the following
list of officers: President, O. B.
Smith; vice-president, Dr. McLaren;
secretary treasurer, Don Darrah;
captain, A. McQueen; munuger, C.
II. McAllister; executive committee,
R. Clark, T. Collins, D. Darrah and
C. II. McAstocker.
The ice on Lake Newby was in
splendid condition during the lirst
part of the week, and numerous
skating parties from the city took
advantage of this opportunity to test
their skates.

sad to relate, is now out of dnte.

Mining at Danville
P. W. McGregor, the Danville
peace guardian under sheriff W. J.
Hail, was a visitor in Republic the
first of the week, says the Republic
News-Miner. He said in a general
conversation about the camp, and
especially in regard to the mines:
"Danville has held its own for a
year or two, and has just besun to
show signs o,1 a new era of mining.
The Lucile Dreyfus, which has had
a'out lis checkered a career as any
property in Washington, is coming
to the front again—not with a rush
—but with a certainty of movement
which betokens the purposo of the
management to succeed in showing
the world that it is a mine, notwithstanding |its past 'hard luck' experience. There are but a few men
on its payroll, but this state of affairs will be of short duration, and
ere the new year appears may be
once more in the shipping column
and the 'tnlk of the town.'
"The Knob Hill tunnell is the only place in the district where development worky^^gmfigNforward
with any degree/A alaCT&y. "•! am
of the opinion that about fifteen
men are employed in various capacities in and about the mine and
probably this will be the extent of
the force until the tunnel is coni-
pleteel and the mine put in shape to
be a constant and large shipper.
"There has been during the season
now drawing to u close a good deal
of representing done which is a
pretty good sign that the boys have
not lost faith in their holdings.
Why should they not have plenty
of faith? Is there another spot on
the Colville Reservation — North
Half or South Half— which can
show so many exceptionally good
looking veins or that carry suuh
high grade ore throughout? It is almost universal for a visitor*-whether
he be a mining man or jnst a plain,
common, everyday business, professional, or laboring man—to a-k:
'Why arc all those properties idle?'
There are none who can answer the
inquiry, save occasionally an owner
will say, 'I have not the capital required to mine and pay the athli-
tional cost of transportation and
treatment charges and hence my
property is not in tho producing list
antl my neighbors are in similar
bouts. What we need and need
badly is capital.' There is doubtless much liuih iu this, as it takes
money to mine with.
"But the real cause of the failures,
to continue mining, where it has
once been inaugurated is not understood by the public, and those who
have the necessary information on
the subject are as dumb as the
"The general impression is that the
shallow mining methods which huve
prevailed is the true cause.
"New capital and new management for the Lu Fleur mountain
mines would make thut section tho
Mecca ofthe miner and tho capitalist within u few months."
Dominion Inspector to Speak

An Important Subject to
Every One Interested in
Fruit Culture
Muxwell Smith, of Vancouver,
Dominion fruit inspector,will deliver
a lecture in the city hall at 8 o'clock
on Monday evening, December
14th, on the subject of packing and
marketing of fruit. Mr. Smith is an
eloquent speaker, and is thoroughly
familiar with his subject, and, an
able address may be expected. It
is the wish of the president of the
Kettle Valley Farmers' Institute
that every member of that organization, as well as any one else interested in fruit culture, and the citizens generally, should attend this

with hard metal utensils, made
in Kngland—articles useful to every
housewife, ns well as a great viuiety
of silverware. While every department is replete with useful and ornamental articles, Mr. Morrison

Fill DAY. DECEMBER 11, 1908
' i^HK press of the country should
1 discountenance any reflection
upon public men and the government
without sufficient evidence of wrongdoing. During the late camagain,
correspondents of English papers,
carried away by partizan feeling, did
a great injustice to Canada by holding up public men and political
methods in this country to derision
wit'iout the slightest warrant. This
disturbs confidence and works out
injuriously to many interest. Itgives
a wrong view of our public life, and
lowers Canada in the estimation of
nations. It is to be hoped thnt
there will be no more of this. It is
unpatriotic, misleading and extremely vicious Oiryof late years has the
real Canada been known abroad.
We have been misrepresented sufficiently by those who spoke in
ignorance of the climate and resources of the Dominion, and it is
highly reprehensible that our public
life should bc commented upon in
terms calculated Jto give a wrong impression by those who know better.
This is a time when capital should
be attracted to the country and not
frightened away. It is a lime when
the resources of the country require
assistance in their development, and
when ample returns may be expected from investments. Therefore
there should be nothing "s'uid or
done which in the slightest degree
would velleet upon us as a people or
a nation.
