A letter from Louis Oppenhelmer
requested the council to refund the

offer was accepted.
Tbe request of Mr. Mitchell for
th e extension of the city water system to his residence wus granted.
The city health officer, Dr. King-1
ston, submitted the following report
for 1906: j
The Mayor and City Council of Grand
Forks: !
Gentlemen:—I   beg   to   submit a
health report of the year 1906.
Infectious diseases—
Cured or
No. Deaths, removed
Typhoid  96       12 8*1
Measles    8 0 8
Chickenpox    6 0 6
Pneumonia  12 0 1.3
Tuberculosis    4 1 3
A large proportion of the typhoid
cases originated outside the city,chiefly
in the railway camps along the North
Fork of the Kettle river. These cases
became most numerous at the usual
typhoid season, viz., September, October and November. The higher mortality rate than we have sometimes
heretofore had to report, seemed chiefly
due to the fact that in many cases the
disease had reached an advanced stage
before the patients came in from the
camps. The number of all forms of
infectious diseases orignating in the
city was less than for some years past,
In previous reports 1 have made
reference to the fact there was no
suitable place for the isolation and
care of the more serious form of contagious disease. The need of such a
place has been forcibly demonstrated
recently, when a number of cases of
diphtheria were found in our city.
There being no provision to meet the
emergency, we were virtually compelled to place these cases in the Cottage hospital. With scrupulous care,
isolating tjie patients in the upstairs,
we succeeded in preventing any spread
of the contagion. . I would strongly
recommend that steps be taken as
early as possible to provide a small
isolation hospital.
A number of milk tests were made
during the year, showing, iu each
case, that the milk conformed to the
required standard both in regard to the
percentage of butter fat and the absence of preservatives.
The presence of a Hindu colony in
the West end continues to some
extent a sanitary menace. Unless they
can be made to adopt or conform to
the most elementary rules of cleanliness they should be driven out of the
city. J
The pools of dead water thut are ut
once unsightly and unsanitary, that
may be seen for weeks after the annual freshet, in certain parts of the
business or hotel district, might, I believe, be obviated at moderate cost by
putting in a box or tile drain. I would
again earnestly recommend,this to the
consideration of the council,
The question of a septic tank for
the better handling of the sewuge in
the hotel district has engaged the attention of previous councils. I would
advice that this council look into the
feasibility of such a scheme.
It has been discovered that a number of citizens have discuiaed the dry-
earth system of sewage disposal, and
are adopting the privy-pits. These are
unlawful, and should not be tole.uted
unless made a depth of seven or eight
feet at least. Itis well for the citizens to know that the dry-earth system is the most sanitary method of
sewage disposal, in the absence of an
adequate general sewerage system,
But this is the catie only when plenty of
dry ->eartri is used, i. e., sufficient to
render the sewage dry or well oxy-
dized. I would advise that the health
inspector set apart one day a week
during the warm season for making a

J. G. Billings, manager for the
Yale-Columbia Lumber company, was
a visitor in the city his week. This
company, which is now controlled hy
Minneapolis people, operate three
mills in this province, one at Cascade,
one at Nelson, and one at West Robson. It is the intention of the company to start up the Cascade mill before the 1st of April, and if the labor
market will permit it, it will be operated night and day. The plant has a
capacity of about 100,000 feet each
34 hours. With the logs the company
has in the main Kettle river and the
North Forth Fork, this will mean a
cut of about fifteen million feet for the
season. The logs are of a good quality, tamarack and spiuce predominating up the North Fork, while in the
main river they are mostly pine. The
Robson mill was started up on the 4th
inst., and will rnn night and day,
turning out about fifteen million feet,
while the Nelson mill will run through
ten million feet.
The booms at Smelter and the chute
over the dam have been completed,
marking the final step predaratory to
moving the company's big supply of
logs up the North Fork. As Boon as
the state of the river permits thedrive
will commence, and the four and one-
half millions feet of logs will be land-
el at the com-any's mill at Cascade.
Tne precautions taken to guard
ugaiust damage by the logs to the
Granby dam consist of a log chute,
constructed by Geo. Taylor, 51 feet
long by 16 feet wide; two booms, euch
about 500 feet long, extending up the
river, enabling the drivers to feel in
the logs singly if necessary; a strong
boom one mile long at the upper end
of the lake, and a safety boom at the
lower end of the lake.
Mr. Billings is very optimistic regarding the lumber industry in this
section of the province, and stated
that he expected to see prices maintained and the demand good.
New Transportation Company
Incor|K>rution papers have been
issued for the organization of a new
transportation company for Belcher
noun tain mines. The new company
will be known us the Ore Purchasing
k Transportation company, and will
have among its shareholders C. Eugene
Bortle, D. F. Anderson, E. J. Del-
bridge, J. L. Harper and others connected with Belcher interests. One
object of the company is to take over
and rapidly complete the Sky-Line
Tram, the promoting association having gone out of business by tho voluntary withdrawal of some of the promoters. The new company will probably become a feeder for the Belcher
road, or it may in time enlarge its
system to reach the difierent mines
with an independent system. It is
capitalized sufficiently high to carry
out extensive plans should such plans
be decided upon.
All's Well That Ends Well
Dan Morrison had a thrilling experience out at J. A. Hartley's
ranch, two miles south of the city,
last Fliday. While engaged inclean-
ing out an old well, 45 feet deep, a
cave in occurred from the top. Mr.
Morrison succeeded in dodging the

frequent visits to this city, and who
is well known here, has gained an enviable reputation among ourcitizeus us a

his victims to chicken dinners, have
been some of his mildest pranks.
This sort of work has gone on until
it became unbearable, and the boys
around town decided to play evcn.*|
With the aid of a female impersonator
they laid their plans—laid them well.
When their man arrived in the city
last Friday they were ready fiir him,

to fall he walked into their trap as innocently as a lamb goes to its slaughter. When the trick was exposed,

During a brief cessation of the fall

Per Cent Per Annum on
Par Value
$2 Per Share Authorized to
Be Distrib uted at. Meeting This Week
At a meeting of the directors of the
Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting k Power Company, Limited,which
was held in New York on Wednesday,
a dividend was decidred which puts
the stock on a basis of paying 8 per
cent on the par value of the stock,
which is .$100 a share. It has been
the custom of the directors to declare
four dividens a year of IA per cent
each. The dividend declared this
week is said to be $2 a share, which
brings the qotal up to 8 por cent.
Plans for Improvements

Great Northern Appeals
The Republic News-Miner says
that notice of appeal to the supremo
court from the decision of Judgo
Carey has been served upon tho defendant company in the injunction
case of the Great Northern Railway
Company vs. The Spokane & British
Columbia Railway Company.
False Alarm
An alarm of fire wns turned in from
the Henderson corner at about 9:30
last Monday night, but when the department nrrived on tho Bcene they
failed to find tho fire. It is presumed
that some small boys wore having
fun with the fire box.
tory at the plant includes eight blast
furnaces, the enlargement of which to
a capacity of about 500 tons per day
is now nearly completed, thus giving
when coke supplies are adequate, a
minimum capacity of some 3000 tons
per day, even when one of the fur
naces happens to be temporarily out
of commission for repairs. The enlargements proposed by Mr. A. B.W,
Hodges, the local manager, will consist of the addition of another water
jacket to each of the present furnaces,
thus obviating the necessity of erecting another or larger furnace building, the present building having recently "been reconstructed of steel,
making it fireproof.
Big Contract
The Grand Forks Steel Structural
Works have secured a contract from
the Granby company for the nianu-
fteture of 72 steel furnace jackets.
Work on the contract has already
been started, but it will keep the li. in
busy for some time.

FRIDAY, MARCH 8,  1907
The Lord's Day Act is meeting with
much opposition in Nelson and Rossland from the miners, mine owners
and boards of trade.
Although the season is well advanced, the Grand Forks city council,
the board of trade and the 20,000 club
have a splendid opportunity to pass
good resolutions on two important
(Concluded From Page One)
general survey of the eity, to eompel
the removal of all nuisances, and to
make suggestions looking to the maintenance of the highest degree of cleanliness. C. M. Kingston,
Medical Health Officer.
The mayor thought that the government should build an isolation
hospital instead of the city. He also
stated that a case of smallpox had
been reported at Orient, and that
the provincial authorities had acted
very tardily in instituting quarantine proceedings against that place.
Aid. Donaldson, chairman of tbe
special committee appointed to enquire into the advisability of purchasing Mr. Waterston's building for
a workshop for the city electrician,
reported that the committee had
agreed upon $200 as the price for the
same in the event the council decided to buy.
„ There appeared to be quite a
divergance of opinion among the
aldermen as to whether or not the
city needs this building, and even
after a lengthy discussion no satisfactory conclusion was arrived at.
ThoBe who favored buying maintained that the city has no suitable
workshop for the electrician, while
those opposed to the deal declare
that quarters can be found for Mr.
Waterston in the city hall building,
nnd that even if the building is purchased all the heavy work will
have to be done at the power
house. They all agreed on
the point, however, that if the city
needed the building, it would be
cheaper to buy it than to pay rent.
The matter was finally luid over till
next Monday night in order that all
sides of the question might be more
fully investigated.
Md. McCullum reported lhat Mr.
Frankmich desired to purchase the
old power house and^he two lots on
which it is located. The clerk stated
that the Townsite and Granby companies had promised, at the time it
wus erected, to donate a lot each to
the city for building the power house
in that section of the city, but thc
deeds had never been turned over to
the corporation, ns a consequence of
which the city had no title to the
property. The present manager of
the Townsite company had stated
that if the city possessed documents
showing thut the promise had been
made, he thought his coinpany
would still be wiiling to fulfill its
part of the agreement. All that the
clerk had found up the present
time bearing on the subject was a
resolution in the council proceedings. The matter was laid over till
next Monday night.
The water and light commfttee
was instructed to take the necessary
steps to have the electric light wires
raised over the new traffic b'ridge.
Aid. Mcintosh, chairman of the
health and relief committee, reported that he had instructed the Hindus to clean their premises, but .that
when he had subsequently visited
the West end he found that nothing
had been done. The mayor said he
would instruct the chief of police to
act in the matter, and if the Hindus
did not comply with the city's sanitary regulations they would be
driven out of town.
The mayor said certain parties hnd
made the charge that the tenders for
the approach to the traffic bridge
had been tampered witb, and be
wished to make an emphatic denial
of the charge. Any one who was
present at the meeting when the
tendere were opened could bear "out
tbis statement.
The second ragular meeting in
each month was made the date for
the payment of aconnts against
the corporation.
It was the general opinion of the
council thnt the city team should lie
given given more practice in the fire
The various committees were in
structed to take an inventory of the
tools belonging to the city. It was
also the sense of the council that
hereafter each committee oe held
responsible for the tools in its possession.
Aid. McCalhrn thought some
steps should betaken tc induce the
Great Northern railway to make this
city a divisional point. The mayor
was of the same opinion. Good,
strong resolutions should he adopted
by the city council, the board of
trade and the 20,000 club. Similar
measures should be taken in regard
to securing better freight rates. On
motion of Aid. McCallum and Donaldson, tbe mayor was requested to
appoint a committee to draft suitable
•"■solutions. The mayor named
Aid. McCallum, Woodland and Donaldson as such committee.
The council then adjourned till
next Monday night

300 tons of copper and the French
arsenal also is in the market for an
important quantity of cartridge
metal. In addition to all this,
America is steadily sending orders
for copper oyer hero, and business
has been done from here for delivery
up to April."
Blows In and Out
The sixth furnace was blown in
at the Granby smelter the latter part
of last week, hue on Wednesday two
of them were again temporarily
blown out, presumably on account
of coke shortage. This only makes
half of the battery at present in operation. Nos. 7 and 8 furnaces are
being enlarged, which, when completed, will make the entire battery
the sunie size.
Deman J for Copper
Concerning the present demand
for copper, Henry R. Merlon & Co.,
of London, in one of their recent
market letters say: "There are still
plenty of requirements to be covered
and several ne\\ orders have been
given out of lute providing wire

Some time ago a boy was required
by his teacher to write an essay on
"The Mouth," and this is what he
wrote: "Thc mouth is the frontdoor
of the face. It .is the aperture to the
cold storage of our anatomy. It is
the botbed of toothache and the
bungbole of oratory. Tbe mouth is
the foundation of patriotism and the
tool chest for pie. Without a mouth
the politician would be a wanderer
on the face of the earth and go down
to a dishonored grave. It is the grocer's friends and the dentist's hope.
It is the temptation lunch counter
when attached to a pretty girl, and
is a tobacco repository when attached to a man."

Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, the following simple formula, the ingredients of
which can be obtained of any good
prescription druggist at small cost, is
all that will be required: Virgin Oil of
Pine (Puee), one-half ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hours. The de
sired results cannot be obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oi) of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is
securely sealed in a round wooden case
which protects the Oil from exposure
to light. Around the wooden case is
an engaged wrapper with the name—
"Virgin Oil of Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. There are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.
