Government Approves Bylaw
Authorizing Sale of Oity
Tho regular meeting of the city
council was held on Monday evening, the mayor and Aid. Davis, Lequime, Manly, McCallum and
Whiteside being present.
A communication was received
from Government Agent McMynn,
of Greendwood, asking the council
to cooperate with Phoenix and
Greenwood in having an isolation
hospital for the district established
near the latter place, and to determine what portion of the cost each
city should bear. The council was
of the opinion that an isolation hos
pital at Greenwood would be too far
removed from this city for all prac
tical purposes, and ordered the
communication filed.
The city solicitor reported that he
had only been able to obtain inform-
tjon from one city—Revelstoke—regarding what proportion of the cost
the corporation assumed in constructing cement sidewalks. He
would make further attempts, bow-
e'ver, to secure the desired information.
The city solicitor submitted a letter from the provincial secretary,
stating the lieutenant-governor in
council had approved bylaw No. 59,
authorizing the city to sell property
purchased at tax sales.
Messrs. Shaw and Emard addressed the council, protesting
against R. Forrester operating a
dairy barn in the West end. The
matter was fully discussed by the
council, and the conclusion was
reached that the barn constituted a
nuisance. On motion, the clerk
was instructed to notify Mr. Forrester to move his dairy outside the
city limits within one week.
The health and relief committee
and the city solicitor were instructed to take the necessary steps to
have an old gentleman, who hos
bjen living on public charity for
some time, sent to the Old Men's
Home at Kamloops.
The past month's accumulation of
accounts were ordered paid.
The board of work's report, dealing with minor matters, was received
and adopted. »
Aid. Whiteside's road tax bylaw
was advanced to the third reading
stage. It provides for a road tax of
$2, which iB payable on the 1st of
Aid. Manly's amendment to bylaw No, 43, fixing the lawn sprinkling hours from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.,
reached its third reading.
vue, Que. Assistance will bo given
to the extent of $50 for each term,
to be paid through the bursar oi the
college selected. There arc two
terms in each college year, and students are expected, if possible, to
complete two years' courses. The
terms begin in September and close
in April. The endeavor of the department is to place young men of
lhe province desiring to take an agricultural college course on a footing
equal to lhat which will exist when
a provincial agricultural college is
established in British Columbia.
Persons who desire to take advantage of the assistance offered are requested to communicate with this
department, abo with the president
ot the college selected, so that necessary arrangements may be made.
I have the honor to be, sir, your
obedient servant,
R. M. Palmer,
Deputy Minister of Agriculture.
McKinley Mines
The annual meeting of the McKinley Mines, Ltd., was held at the
office of the company in this city, on
Tuesday, the 13th instant. The
election of officers resulted as foi
lows: President, G. A. McLeod, of
Spokane; vice-president, Jas. Breen,
of Spokane; secretary-treasurer, A.
li. Mackenzie, Rossland. These officers, with D. Whiteside and B. Lequime, of Grand Forks, constitute
the board of directors.
The option on tbe property of the
company, given a few days since,
was ratified.
In a short chat with Mr. McLeod
he stated that there was no doubt
about there being a mine in the McKinley. With a little extra development it will produce a sufficient ton
nage of ore to justify the extension
of the Kettle Valley line lo the McKinley camp, and there is no doubt
that it will be extended when the
tonnage is assured. About twenty
miles of track is all that is necessary
to construct in order to reach the
camp. The opening of the McKinley camp will be of great benefit to
that section of the Bounday, as
there are several promising prospects
in the camp besides tbe McKinley.

The rumor—we do not know how
it gained currency—that the Spokane

Midway ct Vernon coinpany, and
that lhe line is to be extended to the
coast at once, may be all right—and
we hope it is all right; but for our
part we cannot see how construction work can be commenced
before tho indebtedness of the moribund concern is lifted, and no intimation has yet reached us that, this
has been done.- We are afraid that
some exuberant optimist has been
indulging in day dreams.

An Otter Which Meets the Special Wants ot All Classes ot Readers
The Western Canadian reading public ia made up chiefly of these classes
Persons who have lived in the West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies the former resident of Eastern Canada with news of the
Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Grand Forks Sun provides
Uielocal and Boundary news, which you cannot do without.
Whoso hath the gift of giving wisely,
equitably, well;
Whoso, learning all men's secrets, unto none his own will rell;
Whoso, ever cold and courtly, utters
nothing that offends,
Such a one may rule his fellows unto
Earth's extremest ends.
The good think evil slowly,  and  they
A price for faith—as many good men
Hunger hears not, cares not; no boon
of the starving beg;
When the snake is pinched with craving, verily she eats her egg.
Of the Tree of State the root
Kings are—feed what brings the fruit.
Courtesy may cover malice; ou their
heads the woodmen bring,
Meaning all the while to burn them,
logs and fagots—oh, my king!
And the strong and subtle river,
rippling at tho ceder' s foot,
While it seems to lave and kiss it, undermines the hanging root.
He who shares his   brother's  portion,
be he beggar, be he lord,
Comes as truly, comes as duly to  the
battle as the board;
Stands before the king to succer,  foi
lows to the pile to sigh;
He   is friend and he is kinsman—less
would make the name a lie.
Weep not! Life the hired nurse is,
holding us a little space;
Death, the inothei who doth take us
back into our proper place.
Gone; with all their gauds and glories
gone, like peasants, are the kings,
Whereunu) the world is witness,
whereof all her record rings.
For the body, daily wasting, is
not seen to waste away,
Until wasted, as in water set a jar of
unbaked clay.
And day after day man goeth near and
nearer to his fate,
As step after seep the victim   thither
where its slayers wait.
Like as a plank of driftwood
Tossed on the watery main,
Another plank encountered,
Meets—-touches—parts again;
So tossed, and drifting ever,
On life's unresting sea,
Men meet, and greet, and sever,
Parting eternally.
Halt, te'avellerl rest i' the shade: then
up and leave it!
Stay, Soul! take thy fill   of   love; nor
losing grieve it!
Each beloved object horn
Sets within tho heart a thorn,
Bleeding, when they lie upturn.
When thine own house,   this   rutting
frame, doth wither,
Thinking    another's     lasting—goest
thou thither?
Meeting makes a parting sure,
Life is nothing but death's dour.
As the downward-running rivers never
turn and never stay,
So the days and nights stream death-
ward, bearing human lives away.
Bethinking him of darkness grim, and
death's unshunnrd pain,
A man strong-souled relaxes hold, like
leather soaked in rain.
From the day, the hour, the minute,
Eaeh life quickens in the womb;
Thence its march, no falter in it,
Goes straight forward   to the tomb.
An 'twere not so, would sorrow cease
with yearsl
Wisdom   sees aright  what   want  of
knowledge fears.

Golden Text—In the world ye shull
havfe tribulation; be of good cheer, I
huve overcome the world—.lohn xvi:
Verse 1—What remarkable thing
had immediately preceded Paul's start
for Corinth?
'['here is no record of a vision or
any special divine instruction for
Paul going to Cornith; but is a good
man as much guided by God when he
is not conscious of it, as when he is,
and why? (This question must be
answered in writing by members of
the club.)
Verses 2-3—What was the attraction between Aquda and Paul?
How do you account for it that
there is an affinity between men of the
suine trade?
Have labor men a perfect right to
band themselves together, for mutual
protection, against the undue demands
of capital?
Has capital a moral right to protect itself against labor?
Have business men a right to protect themselves against undue competition?
Paul worked at his trade as a tent
maker for a living; is there any suggestion in this that modern preachers
should do a similar thing?
A large proportion of the membership of the present day Christian
church have the latent ability to
preach; ought not tbis ability tobede
veloped, thus giving to every local
church several preachers, ahd the
work being divided between them,
would be better clone than at present,
and each preacher make his own living?
Verse 4—Is it the duty and privilege of every adult Christian to be engaged, at least every Sunday, in some
specilic spiritual work?
Why did Paul, in the beginning, in
Corinth, confine bis mork to the Sabbath day and to the .lews.'
Verses 5-6—What effect did the visit of.Silas and Timothy have upon
If a good man is ever so much in
earnest, may the visit of another earnest man intensfy his spirit?
When a man does his very best in
preaching, and fails to make converts,
is he entitled to as much credit at if
he had great suocess?
Did Paul blame himself for nis failure, and that the Jews resisted and
blasphemed; and ought a man of God
always take a similar position in like

past, and is it today, sometimes necessary for a good man to leave the
church and start a meeting of bis
