Ineffectual Attempt to Close
the   Grand    Forks
Has Complied With  All  Requests Made by the Commissioners
The regular statutory meeting of
the board of licensing commissioners
for the city of Grand Forks was held
in the city hall yeBterday afternoon,
Mayor Hammar and Commissioners
McCallum and Mcintosh being present.
A communication was read from
W. B. Cochrane, who stated that he
represented tbe Grand Forks Licensed Victualers' association, opposing the granting of a further extension of the license to the Grand
Forks hotel. Mr. Cochrance maintained that the permit had been
issued contrary to law. Tbe statutes
only provided for quarterly meetings—in March, June, September
and Decernber-*-of the board. Tbe
board had refused to grant the license at a regular meeting; at an adjourned meeting it had refused to
reconsider its action, and had ad
jnuriied sine die, but at a subsequent
meeting, of which therewas no record, a one-month permit had been
granted. He cited tbe statutes to
prove that no person bad a right
to sell iijuor without a license. A
permit was not a license. Tbe Municipal Clauses Act provided that all
licenses shall expire on the 15th day
of January and the lath day of
July, and that they shall only be
granted in open court. Every person
interested was entitled to due notice
of such meeting. He contended
that tbe license under consideration
wan null and void because it had
been granted at a meeting dot properly constituted, and cited decisions
tending to show that the amount of
money expended for improvements
on the premises had no bearing on
the case.
A. C. Sutton appeared for the
Grand Forks hotel. In the absence
of the minutes of the meeting at
which the permit was granted, Mr.
Cochrane would have to show conclusively that it was not a properly
constituted meeting, He had not
done so. The byliws of the city
gave the board power to reconsider
its action, and according to the Municipal Clauses Act it also had power to giant temporary licenses. He
knew that the *neeting at which the
permit had been granted was a properly constituted meeting, although
the minutes had been mislaid, and,
owing to the absence of the clerk,
they could not be found. A quorum
of the board constituted a proper
meeting. The permit was issued
with the understanding that a license
would be granted. Mr. Hartinger bad
since expended 8700 on improvements, and it was now one of the
most sanitary hotels in the city.
Mr. Cochrane could not oppose tbe
license on moral grounds, because
both Phoenix and Greenwood had
more liquor licenses than Grand
Mr.   Cochrane  replied   that the
only grounds on which he opposed
tbe license was from a legal standpoint.
Mr. McCallum wanted to know
what constituted an open meeting,
and Mr. Sutton replied that a quorum wiiB sufficient.
The mayor said a renewal had
been refused at tbe first meeting of
the board. Then he had inspected
the hotel, and had found it entirely different from what he hud
expected. He had called a meeting
for the 16th of July to reconsider
tbe action. He had come to the
conclusion that an injustice had been
done Mr. Hartinger, and a permit
was issued on the understanding
that further improvements would be
made. Mr. Hartinger had now complied with the request of the commissioners. He saw no justification
in taking away the license.
Mr. McCallum stated that his object in moving an adjournment sine
die had merely been because he did
not know when the board could meet
Mr. Cochrane wanted an objection
entered in the minutes to tbe granting of licenses except at regular
statutory meetings. Tbis was done.
Tbe clerk read the report of the
chairman of the health and relief
committee, showing that the hotel is
now in perfect sanitary condition.
The license inspector also reported
favorably on the house.
The mayor favored, granting the
license, with the consent of one or
two of the commissioners, and as
there was no objection raised he
signed the document.
The board came to tbe conclusion
tbat it could not see its way clear to
comply with the recommendation of
the city council and put the chief of
police on night duty, but that arrangements will be made so that he
can run the pump in the afternoon.
The board then adjourned.
In our report of tbe accident last
week th<- name should have read
James Newby instead of Thomas
Newby. The latter gentleman is still
hale and hearty. Our reporter wrote
it James, but the compositor, who
thought he knew better, made the
types readThonias.and he had sufficient
will power to hypnotize the proofreader.
The proceeds, over and above the
guarantee, of the comic opera, "Gipsy
Girl," to be given by the Juvenile
Bostonians in the opera house next
Friday night, August 23rd, will be
used by the directors of the Athletic
association in making improvements
at the rink.
An ice cream social, under the
auspices of the ladies of the Catholic
church, will be held on Tuesday
afternoon and evening, August 20,
in the building next to Manly's
store, Bridge street. Hazelwood ice
cream will be served.
The attentiou of local contractors
is called to the advertisement of the
federal government asking for tenders for the construction of a post
office building at Cumberland.
The plan of the Juvenile Bostonians will be open at Woodland's
tomorrow and Monday to subscribers, and on Tuesday to the general
public. Get your seats early, as
over 175 tickets bave been sold.
The entertainment will stmt promptly at 8 o'clock.
Maurice O'Connor Defies the
Police, but Lands in the
City Bastile
An Austrian  Fined $50 for
Evading Payment of Customs Duty
Maurice O'Connor, an erratic
character employed at the Granby
smelter, was arrested yesterday
morning by Chief Savage and A. E.
Smith, who had been deputized, for
disturbing the peace of the community and making a nuisance of
himself generally. O'Connor, who
was under tbe influence ot liquor,
paraded up and down Bridge street,
with drawn knife and yelling at the
top of his voice, threatening the
lives of the citizens and pefying any
one to arrest him. Chief Savage
armed himself.and in company with
Smith, Btarted after O'Connor. When
they encountered him, the chief
commanded O'Connor to drop the
knife and throw up his hands
or he would shoot him. O'Connor paid no attention to the
command of the chitf, but simply
stared at him and retained a firm
grip of tbe knife and assumed an attitude of striking. In the meantime
Smith had slipped up behind O'Connor, and pinioning the latter's hands
to his side, the chief walked up and
tood the knife away and handcuffed
him, and be was hustled off to jail.
Tbe prisoner came up for a hearing
before Judge Cochrane yeBterday
morning, but the case was adjourned
until 40:30 tomorrow forenoon.
Two Austrians, John and Joseph
Balzo, were before Judge Cochrane
yesterday morning charged with
evading payment of customs duties.
One of them pleaded guilty to the
charge, and was fined $50. The other pleaded not guilty, and the case
was withdrawn. The law imposes a
penalty for this offence of a fine not
exceeding $200 nor less than #50,
or imprisonment for a term not exceeding one year nor less than one
A Vancouver dispotch says that
R. L. Borden, leader of the Conservative party of Canada, will visit
Grnnd Forks on September 30. Lo
cal Conservatives say that this is a
mistake, and that this eity is not included in Mr. Borden's itinerary.
James Newby, who was seriously
injured last week by being thrown
from a horse, is reported to be
holding his own at the Grand Forks
hospital; in fact, it is stated that lie is
gaining slightly in strength. The
most dangerous thing that now stands
in the way of ultimate recovery is another operation, which will have to be
performed as soon as he gets strong
enough to stand the ordeal. Mrs.
Newby arrived from Gilpin, Alta.,
last Wednesday, and is now with her
W. J. Brown, who recently purchased the McConnel ranch, east of
the city, has a deal pending for the
sale of 370 acres of that property to
some   fifteen   families   from    Indian
Head, Alta. Messrs. White and
Hood, of that place, who are acting
for the purchasers, arrived in the city
last Thursday, and after inspecting the
ranch returned to Indian Head on
Friday evening to make their report.
They were highly pleased with the
land, and the deal will be closed as
soon as they return to this city. The
land will be subdivided, and it is expected that some of the purchasers
will remove to their holdings thisfn.il.
The powei* house at the Granby
smelter has been closed down during
the present week to permit of some
needed repairs to the big flume being
made. The shutdown has made no
difference to the operation of the smelter.
Tnoinas Burke, an aged, nan who
has been employed for some' time as a
section hand between this eity and the
smelter, died very suddenly of heart
failure in the small residence near the
steel works last Saturday morning.
Interment took place in the city cemetery last Monday.
The Great Northern recently discarded the light engines for the passenger service on the Phoenix branch,
and used one of the Moguls in order
to be able to handle the ore from the
Idaho mine. However, when the C.
P. R. could not furnish the Idaho
dumps promptly at Denoro, one of the
little dinky engines was put on the
passenger run again.
Mrs. Ellen D. Davidson, aged 69
years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Hyndman, across the North
Fork, on Tuesday last. Deceased has
been a resident of thc city but a short
time, and leaves one daughter, Mrs,
Hyndman, in this csty. The funeral
was held from the family residence
yesterday afternoon, Rev. F. W.
Auvache conducting the service.
A gentlemen sent a dispatch from
Phoenix last Monday morning and
then buarded a train for Grand Forks.
When he arrived in this city he
learned that he had outstripped the
message here. The mile-a-minute trains
in the eust are not in it with the
Boundary down-grade flyers.
W. J. Brown, who recently purchased the Johnson ranch, consisting
of 1300 acres und adjoining the city
limits on the east, is making arrangements for the running of an excursion
over the C.P.R. from Winnipeg to this
city for the special purpose of enabling
intending purchasers of frnit lands
to personally inspect the vulley around
Grand Forks before they make an investment.
Mr. and Mrs. C. O. Sterling, who
were (Hurried in Spokane last week,
have returned to this city from their
honeymoon trip, and have tnken up
housekeeping in Mrs. P. D. McDonald's residence in the West end. Mi.
Sterling is a Great Northern conductor on the Grand Forks-Oroville division.
Wm. Dacre says the government is
very considerate to plant fish in
Christina lake for his especial benefit,
us he hauled out quite a mess lust
week, among them being a six-pound
black bass.
The citizens of Grand Forks
should fill the opera house to over
flowing next Friday night, August
23rd. The Juvenile Bostonians is a
very strong company. The best that
ever visited this city.
Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company of Canada
The Claims and Assets of the
Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines, Ltd.
A Toronto dispatch of the 14th
inst. states that an important deal
bas just been closed in that city
whereby the Consolidated Mining k
Smelting Company of Canada has
purchased the property, mining
claims and assets of the Phoenix
Amalgamated Copper Mines, Ltd.,
located at Phoenix, and including
the following properties: War Eagle,
Red Rock, Dandy, Dandy fraction,
Pinhook, Lulu, World's Fair, Missing Link and Bald Eagle. The company has also purchased the Keystone claim. A large force of men
is at work on the properties.
Cave-In at the Brooklyn
A cave-in about 100 feet across
and probably 500 feet long, and extending down to or below the 250-
foot level, occurred at the Brooklyn
mine in Phoenix last Saturduy night.
The shaft, however, is intact, and was
being operated as usual lost Tuesday
when The Sun man inspected the
chasm. Ore can be taken from the
350-f jot level, which is being connected with a drift as fast as possible
with the Idaho mine, adjoining, as is
also the 250-foot level. As a matter
fact, the company had thousands of
tons of additional ore broken down
and available, which could be readily
hoisted from the 350-foot level aa soon
as shipping facilities were provided.
The cave-in carried with it a section of
the ore bunkers, but on Tuesday work
wus commenced on new ore bins, and
the mine is now shipping ns usual
once more. During the suspension of
shipments from the Brooklyn the corn-
puny's smelter wus supplied with oro
from its other mines. The spectneu-
lnr part of the CKve-in was the mun-
ner in which it left the C.P.R. tracks
suspended ucross the chasm, resembling a suspension bridge, Fortunutely
no one were in the mine ut the time
the cuve occurred.

FRIDAY,  AUGUST 16,  1907
It is u pity that Mr. Ham of the
C.P.R. did not see his wuy clear to
pilot the party of English journalists
through the Boundary district. As
a result they will miss seeing some of
the biggest things in the province
and in the Dominion. We have here
largest copper mines and reduction
works in Canada, and the second largest fruit ranch in the province. These
alone are worth a trip from England
to inspect. But besidos these things
the district possesses unrivalled valley
und mountain scenery, to be found nowhere else in' the province, wnich
would limply huve repaid the visitors
for making a side trip of something
like one hundred miles. We feel that
both the Boundary county and
the touring journal 8ts have btei
cheated by the C.P.R., or whoever
had charge of the arranging of the
itinerary of the party.
The Sun has an original idea. This
announcement need occasion no comment, as we always keep a good supply on hand. But this is an exceptionally line scheme. Here is our proposition: Grand Forks has long been
known as the Smelter City, but quite
recently an eminent fruit authority
conferred upon this town the title of
the Orchard City of British Columbia.
If we are to retain these titles we
should devise some means of showing
our appreciation for the honor thrust
upon us. At present our streets and
avenues are named and numbered in a
hap-huzurd fashion. Often the names
convey no tangible meaning, and
streets and avenues parallel each
other. For instance, First street is
not the first street in the city, and all
the Winnipeggers in the city reside on
Victoria avenue, while the Victorians
appear to have taken a fancy to Winni
peg avenue. The saineupplies to other
streets. There is not a church within
a mile of Church street. Market street
is minus its market. Why not start all
over again by renaming the thoroughfares. This could be done in this
manner: Name all the streets after
fruit or ornamental trees, and sturt at
the North Fork, continuing them, in
alphabetical order, out to the city
limits in the West end The avenues
could ho named after some mineral,
and should start from the Kettle river
and continue alphabetically to Observation mountain. The advantages
of this scheme must be apparent to the
veriest observer. A man could tell
instantly where his friend was located
simply by naming the street or avenue. It would also give us a firmer
grip on our titles. Then, again, if
this plan is adopted, the city council
could easily puss a bylaw compelling
the ranchers to live on the streets and
the miners on the avenues. This
would undoubtedly terminate the
present internecine warfare between
the two factions. This principle could
be carried even further. The apple
glowers could reside on Apple street,
the cherry orchardists on Cherry
street, and the peach growers on
Peach street; the owner of a copper
mine would naturally seek Co|pT
avenue as his dwelling place, und the
printers would go to Antimony ave
nue, und so on down to Zinc avenue.
When this scheme is odopted thc
street signs will contain u complete
history of every inhabitant in the
Thc provincial Liberal convention
bus   been   called   lo  meet in Van
couver on October 2. Ten ijelegati s
will be allowed for each member of
the legislature.
