Tlio regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chambers last Monday evening, all the members being present.
A communication was read from

Valley line, stating that the road
present only used one-half the
amount of water it did when the
agreement with the city wus made.
A request for a reduction in the rate
of 50 per cent was made. Referred to
the water and light committee, with
power to act.
The city solicitor reported that
judgment for #50 and costs had been
given against the city in the case of
Mcintosh vs. The Corporation of the
City of Grand Forks.
The board of works reported thai
the estimated cost of a two-span,
1.30 feet long and 8 feet wide, foot
bridge across the Kettle river at
First street would be 81000. It
would require about 3500 feet of
lumber to build the bridge. Referred to the board of works.
Jeffery Hammar, manager for P,
Burns & Co., addressed the council
in reference to a rate for power and
light for the company's cold storage
plant. He was of tbe opinion that
a Hat rate of $ 15 per month would
be a fair basiB, and he was prepared
to offer that amount, but no more,
The company would also be willing
to pay a fair proportion of the cost
for the grading of the alleyway near
its shop. Referred to the water and
light committee, with instructions
to report at the next meeting.
The chairman of the board of

The bill of F. E. Cooper for $25

L'inl officials, the decensed having
come to the city from Bannock
a few days previous to his death.
The estimates of the various committees for the current year were referred to the finance committee,
witn instructions to report at the
next meeting.
The city clerk reported that he
had been unable to complete tbe assessment roll, and the time for returning the same waB extended to
May 18th.
The Mcintosh vs.Tho City of Grand
Forks ease was discussed at some
length, and the council finally decided to accept the judgment handed
down by his honor Judge Brown as
final. In the opinion of the city
solicitor, the costs in the case would
probably be somewhere in the neighborhood of $100.
Health Officer Kingston addressed
LOUISE BREHANY—AT OPERA HOUSE NEXT FRIDAY.
council on the urgent necessity of
the establishment of a small isolation hospital. The cost of such a
building would probably not exceed
$500, and he was firmly of the opinion that something in this direction

were set from 6 to S a.m. and  from
5 to 8 p. m.
The council then adjourned.
The Brehany Company
The appearance of the great
American soprano, Louise Brehany,
and her talented associates in a ballad ind operatic concert at the
Grand Forks opera house, Friday
night, May 15th, will be a rare
musical feast that is seldom enjoyed
outside of the metropolitan cities.
This charming soprano has long been
recognized as America's greatest
songstress. There is no other soprano, not even in the grand opera
ranks of Italy or America, thnt can
boast the marvellous range of Louise
Brehany. The other members of
Miss Brehnny's organization nre
equally famous, both in Europe and
America, in their respective parts.
Miss Edith Adams, violin cellist, a
graduate of Hansman, of Berlin, is
one of the world's greatest cellists,
having been cello solist with Thomas'
orchestra. Maximilian Dick, who
has been in our city once before, is
also a member of the company, nnd
last, but hy no means least, Miss
Mice McClung, piano soloist and accompanist, a graduate of Walter
Spry's famous school in Chicago.
This concert will fill n long felt wnnt
in the artistic line, and from the advance sale of tickets promises to bo
the greatest success of any entertainment ever given in Grand Forks.
The Mason & Riseh people will furnish the piano for thiB occasion.

It is said that tbe Yale-Columbia
Lumber com pany has one drive on
tho main river of five million feet
nnd another on the North Fork of
one million feet. B. Lequime has
also a million toot drive on the
North Fork. It is suid that big log
jams on the.North Kork ure delaying tbe progress of the driving of the
logs very much, as recently it took
the Yale-Columbia Lumber company ten days to make a distance of
two miles. Itis not expected that
this drive will reach Cascade for
three weeks yet. At present it is
located abuut ten miles up thc river.
Land Titles
Great relief and satisfaction is expressed by the ranchers around Danville because they are at last able to
file on their homesteads, after holding
them down for eight years us squatters,

Bought C.P.R. Hotel
One of the important real estate
deals last Friday was the purchase of thcC.P. R. boarding house in
the West end by Pete Donaldson.
Mr. Donaldson took immediate
charge, and intend to conduct the
house in future on first-class lines.
During the past couple of years tbe

tracts of land on the North Fork,
have secured the titles to the same

ten and twenty-acre lots.
B. C. EL START
On Tuesday last General Manager
McAllister, of the British Columbia
Copper company, announced that
the eompany would start employing
men on Wednesday. It is reported
that there will be work for 500 men
at the mines and 200 nt tho smelter.
Ruling wages, extending from $2.50
to $4, will be pnid. The class of
men wanted aro miners, muckers,
carpenters, smeltermen and laborers.
The mines will open as soon as a
sufficient operating force can be
gathered, and the smelter when the
ore bins are full. This means the
end of a long tie-up of the big mines
at Greenwood, which has lasted
since November 12th last.
Dominion Copper Company
A recent issue of the Boston Commercial bad sonic reference to Dominion Copper. It is only necessary to point out that the whole report is rumor, and that although
some time ago copper companies
everywhere were in difficulties because of the general money stringency, Dominion Copper has been
meeting all its liabilities regularly,
and the latest reports of those who
should know wero that the company had plenty of money on hand.
The company has, of course, wished
to improve its position financially,
and for that purpose Mr. H. II. Melville went to Europe to make an attempt at interesting new capital.
On thc face of it even, the report
does not look very good, because
under present conditions it would
not be to the advantage of the bondholders to take this action. The
Commercial says:
"Dominion Copper is said to be
badly in need of money. It is
claimed that the $400,000 which the
coinpany had in its treasury a year
ago was used to buy new properties,
to purchase mining equipment and
reconstruct and enlarge its smelter.
A fair scale of production had barely
been reached when copper became
unsalable and declined severely in
price. The low prices recently recorded in Dominion Copper bunds
raise the question as tn whether tho
coming interest will he met. Its
mines are said lo have been examined a few inuntbs ano by Granby interests. Notwithstanding the
coinpany owns some mines which
should be very valuable, I would
not advice the purchase of Dominion Copper at present. There is a.
possibility that the bonds may have
to be foreclosed."
Irrigated Fruit Lands
Mr. Tenqilc Gudinan and Lieut.-
Col. W. II. N. Glossop, of London,
England, directors of the Kettle
Valley Irrigated Fruit Lnnds company, have returned to England,
after having spent a week examining the properties of the company
near Rock Creek. The company
has decided tu undertake the construction nf a Hume and trestle 1400
feet in length in connection with its
main irrigating canal. This work is
to be proceeded with as soon as the
lumber is on hand.

servative camp. It appears to be
necessary nowadays for newspapers to
advocate the principles of Toryism in
order to draw the patronage of the
business men and rank and file of the
Liberal party.
The Liberal administration at Ottawa has established a good point on
the subject of government officials
taking part in 'elections. They are
permitted to participate in municipal affairs, hut are forbidden from
taking part in provincial or federal
politics.
It is passing strange that the newspapers of a town whicli has existed on
"hot air" fnr the past six months
should accuse neighboring towns of
distributing the same commodity. If
they are wise, they will cease this
practice in future

Dr. Spencer, the eminent scientist,
maintains that Niagara Falls is 39,000
years old. When Grand Forks attains this age, the eity will be ns much
of a wonder as Niagara is today.
The citizens of Vancouver have

of these institutions.
It is surprising how many newspapers

PERSONAL
The decision of his honor Judge
Brown iu the Mcintosh case will probably cost the city a couple of hundred
dollars. Nu one at present appears to
know what the costs in the ease will
amount to. 801110 sny S100, while
others place them as high 8200. The
latter amount is liable to be nearer
the murk. It is not our intention to
attempt to defend the contract entered
into between the chairman of the 1907
board of works and Mr. Mcintosh to
inspect the approach to the bridge,
and therefore it is dillicult to censure
the council very severely for its action in refusing to pay tho bill
Nevertheless, even though the majority of the members were of opinion
that a bad bargain hnd been made,
goml   business   methods should   have
dictated that a graceful   pay I yf
the obligation was the wuy out of the
dilemma.
The First sireet bridge is now with
out a pier—that is, both piers Imve
been demolished! If a foot bridge is
to be constructed across the river m
this point one of them at least will
have to be reconstructed at a eonsiil-
erable cost. The ratepayers interested in a bridge at ihis point huve decided views "ii the subject. They
claim that the council has no right lu
divert any cash or material it may
get from the  YaleColuiubia   Lumber
oorapuny for the destruction ut' il !«l
bridge fur any other purpose than in
rebuild the structure They intend tu
make a lund flgbt for a fool bridge.

Phono 85 Free School Books
All arrangements have been made
by the provincial government for the
distribution of free books among the
pupils of the different public schools
of British Columbia. Hon. Dr.
i*oung, ministerof education, stated
recently that orders had been placed
with Gage & Co., Toronto, and Mo-
rang & Co., of the same city, for tbe |
standard readers and arithmetics
necessary. It is the intention to
supply all the material used in the
lower grades in reading, arithmetic
and writing.
It  has been pointed out by the
minister that in the introduction of
the new system tliere is a considerable amount of detail work to be done..
However,   everything has been at-,
tended to.    Forms have been issued
to the school superintendents in the j
different   cities,   nnd   to  those   in j
charge   of   educational institutions
elsewhere,  asking  for  information
which they will he required to supply.    This relates principally to tho
number of pupils in the various localities,  something the authorities
will require for the guidance of those
responsible for the distribution.
The minister cf education states
that it is not the intention of the
government to reimburse those stationery establishments that have
kept books in stock which will hereafter be supplied free. He says that
this can scarcely be demanded, as
the merchants have had upwards of
nine months' notice; and from what
he can gather, it has not been the
custom to keep a heavy line on
hand, but to buy from term to term.
Under these circumstances, tbey
should be free of these books, or
nearly so, as tho pronouncament of
the government policy in this regard
was made public in time to prevent
them making the mistake of laying
in a stock for the needs of the stu
dents for the forthcoming year.
Free samples will be distributed
at the beginning of the following the
summer holidays.
Eoman Catholic Church
■Rev. Father Lawrence, an active
member of our missionary staff, of
Buffalo, will preach a mission in the
Roman Catholic church of this city
from May 24th to May 29th. To all
Catholics, a very pressing invitation;
to ail non-Catholics, a very friendly
invitation. A mission is nn occasion for every one to bear, in a series
of sermons, what the religion of
JeRtls Christ is from tho standpoint
of the Roman Catholic church; a
mission is a special time God gives
to make us realize more vividly
what conditions we must comply
with if we want to go tn heaven in
the home of Jesus Christ our God
and Saviour.

Well Known Mining Man
Engaged as Manager of

Two Veins of High Grade
Ore Have Kecently Been
Encountered
. William Rowe, formerly superintendent of the Skylark mine, in Skylark cam)), arrived at the Little
Bertha mine last Friday, and has
taken over the management of that
property.
Recent reports from Ihe mine
state lhat two two-feet veins of high
grade ore has been enoouuteied. It
is also slated that distinct samples
of Bertha ore sent lo Rossland n few
days ago for special analysis have
produced high values in gold and
silver. This latest strike and assay
appears to indicate that tho ore is
getting richer as depth is attained.
