Mayor Desires an Investigation of licensing Commissioners
City Solictor  Instructed   to
Take Action Against Yale-
Columbia Co.
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chambers Monday evening, Mayor
Hammar, Aid. Hardy, Horner, Miller, McCalluin, Mcintosh and Woodland being present.
A communication was read fiom R,
Mcintosh, stating that he would take
action against ohe city if his bill for
inspecting the approach to the Fourth
street bridge was not allowed by the
council. The mayor explained that
the present council had altered the
plans of the approach, and that Mr.
Mcintosh had been engaged in good
faith to inspect the same, and
that he hod performed the work
in good faith. Aid. Mcintosh claimed
that the question of inspectorship had
been discussed at a council meeting,
nnd had been negatived. Aid. Miller
was of the opinion that the best thing
to do was to ascertain whether the
city was liible or not. The city solicitor stated that Mr. Mcintosh certainly had a case against some one—
either the city or the man who en-
giged him. On motion of Aid. Horner and Hardy, the bill was placed on
A communication from the police
commissioners stated that they could
not see their way to comply with the
recommendation of the council and
place the chief on night duty, but that
arrangements had been made so that
he could operate the pump during the
afternoons. Placed on file.
Thos. Puffy made application for a
street light near his residence. Referred t j the water and light committee.
A communication from the secretary of the British Columbia Association of Fire Chiefs.extending an invitation t*o the chief nf the Grand Forks
fire department to attend the annual
meeting of the association in Nelson
on September 1 Uth, was read. Referred to the water anil light committee, with instructions'to report at
the next meeting.
City Engineer Reid was grunted a

The chairman of the water and
light committee recommended that the
city engineer's bill for overtime be not
allowed. The council thought that
the payment of overtime to city
officials would be a dangerous precedent to establish, and the reeommen
dation was approved.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that it would
be cheaper to settle with Mrs, Wiseman for right of way than to move the
pole line. The council decided to
take the former course.
The mayor reported that Mr. Li A.

to be ready to commence furnishing
the city with power on the 1st of
September. Mr. Campbell had offered
no serious objections to the contract
drawn up by the city solicitor.
The water and light committee recommended furnishing light at S*i per
night to the street show to be heln
under the auspices of the Grand
Forks band on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th
of September.
The action of the mayor in signing a petition to the imperial government praying for the prohibition of
the exportation of opium from India
was approved.
The city solicitor stated there was
no question aa to the liability of the
Yale-Columbia Lumber company for
the destruction of the First street
bridge. The city elerk was instructed to notify the company that unless
satisfactory arrangements are made
for another bridge legal proceedings
would be instituted.
Aid. McCallum wished to know if
the estimates for street work had not
been nearly expended. It was the
impression that they had.
The health and relief committee
reported that the hotel men wanted
the city to bear part of the expense of
putting a drain culvert across Riverside avenue. The city agreed to pay
three-eighths of the cost.
The mayor reported that the license commissioners had granted a
license to the Grand Forks hotel.
He was of opinion that the heal th
and relief committee should bring in
a report on the safety and sanitary
condition of the Square hotel, inasmuch as a restaurant is being conducted in the building.
Mayor Hammar entered a vigorous
protest against street talk to the effect that there had been a fund of
11000 raised during the late license
agitation for the purpose of having
the licenses of the Grand Forks and
Square hotels cancelled. He insisted
on an investigation. Aid. Woodland
thought the charges were vague, and
that they did not imply that the
money had been used for the purpose
of influencing the commissioners.
Mr. Hammar replied that the commissioners were the only persons who had
the power to grant licenses, and that
the charges reflected on them. He had
never before been accussed of grafting,
and desired the fullest investigation.
On motion, consideration of the mat-
tei was postponed until the next
The council then adjourned.
The Canadian Horticulturist has
the following to say about fruit possibilities in the Boundary district. "Nu.
0 is usually called the Boundary ur
Kettle River country and although
the smallest of all the districts named
the quality of the land is excellent
und the climatic conditions all that
could be desired. Where a sufficient
water supply is obtainable, there is
no trouble in producing fruit of the
highest quality."
With the opening of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern to Keremeos, which will probably take
place on the 1st of September, this
city will be made a divisional point
for passenger crews.
Breaking  of a   Dump   Car
Wrecks a Train on the
Phoenix Branch
Slight Improvement in Coke
Situation—Four Furnaces
in Operation
There was a bad wreck on the
Phoenix branch of the Great Northern railway yesterday morning. As
the regular passenger train, which
brings down ten C.P.R ore ears from
Phoenix to the Oro Denoro spur every
morning, was running between these
two points, something in the old
wooden dumps broke, and the entire
ten were piled up in one mass in the
ditch. Fortunately the engine and
passener coach were not derailed, and
besides receiving a severe shaking up,
none of the passengers were injured.
The two brakemen, who are compelled to ride on the dump cars as a
precaution against accidents, were
hurled a distance of twenty or thirty
feet, but miraculously escaped any
further injury than some slight contusions. They Aere brought down to
the hospital in this city, but after an
examination of their wounds were al
lowed to return to Phoenix yesterday
The demolition of the ten C. P. R.
dump cars will probably intensify the
car shortage in the Boundary.
The accident tied up traffic on the
Phoenix branch for the time being,
but a temporary track is being constructed around the wreck, and it is
expected that the first train will be
able to get through this evening.
Owing to coke shortage all tl e furnaces at the Granby smelter were
closed down last Friday night, but
four of them were blown in again yesterday morning. Nearly the entire
force of workmen were kept busy during the close down on repair work.
Cuke is now reported to be arriving
more freely, and it is to be hoped that
the rupplv will warrant the operation of the entire plant in the near
examined by I)rs. Newcombe and
Dickson and pronounced insane. The
authorities will leave for New Westminster with him this afternoon.
J. a. Macdonald, of Rossland, who Return to the Boundary of
visited Franklin this week, spoke very |
favorably of that camp, and said that
it would add materially to the prosperity of this city as soon as shipping
facilities are afforded the district.
Every preparation is being made
for tonight's entertainment. A very
large house is assured, so get there
early. Three hundred reserved seats
have been sold.
Yesterday was payday on the Kettle line, and there was a great deal of
railway money around the city last
A few of the Liberals of the city
met Mr. J. A. Macdonald, leader of
the Liberal party of British Columbia,
at the Yale parlors last Tuesday afternoon, and discussed the forthcoming
provincial convention of the party in
Vancouver. Heexpressesed the hope
that this district would send a full
delegation of ten members.

Chas. Brown, one ofthe proprietors
uf the Boundary Iron Works, returned this week from a two weeks'
business trip to Bellinghnm Wash.
Mr, Brown states that he has perfected arrangements to engage in the
foundry business in that city on n
larger scale than his establishment
in this city, and that he expects to remove to the coast with his family
about two weeks hence. A ileal is
now pending for the sale uf his interest in the Boundary Iron Works in
this city. Mr. Brown has been one
nf the most public spirited citizens of
Grand Forks, having added no less
than five fine residences to the growth
of the city since his arrival here, and
the people generally will consider his
departure a distinct loss to the community.
The ice cream social given by the
ladies of the Catholic church last

2 p. in. Each constituency may send
ten delegates for each member repre*

members of the House uf Commons
I .Senate of Canada from British
Columbia and of the British Columbia
Legislature will be entitled exollicio
to attend. Proxies will be allowed to
represent delegates nut able to attend
but the person appointed a proxy must
be a delegate from the constituency.
Liberal Associations! in places where
there is no district association, will
kindly arrange among themselves the
selectiun uf delegates and the credentials tube given them. The date is
in the New Westminster fair week,
and has been selected at the silmost
unanimous suggestion of the Liberal

so that all sections
Mr. T. Moore Fletcher, with his
secretary, Mr. H. Gordon Barclay,
and also an amalgamator, Mr. Percy
Shadforth, arrived in Grand Forks on
Sunday last. Mr. Fletcher is a mining engineer who pioneered this country ten years ago in the interests of
the London Development company,
and is now returning from South
America at the instigation of Mr.
Erskine Smith to inspect some copper
properties in Franklin camp, which
are to be operated if they meet with
Mr. Fletcher's approbation. Mr.
Fletcher may be locally known to
some of the mining men here as a
pioneer of the Klondyke; Coolgardie,
Western Australia; Barberton, South
Africa; New Zealand; Tasmania,West
Coast, and anywhere where the
earth puts out a mineral that carries
the equivalent of dollars. In the
Cordilleries, on the border of Chile
and the Argentine, Mr. Fletcher has
produced the first five kilos (160 oz.)
of gold ever profitably taken out of
an auriferous ledge in that country,
with the first stamp battery operated
by hydraulic power. Mr. Fletcher
represents capital of London based on
experiences which do not come in the
life of the ordinary mining character,
and The Sun hopes to be able, when
he returns from his inspection of the
local camps, to be in a position to
print some reminiscences of mining
life of other countries which may interest our own mining fraternity.
The smelting of copper ore by electricity is one of the present important
interests to this country, and Mr.
Fletcher, who was in London three
weeks ago, amongst the experimentalists in this particular phase of modern
scientific mining, and hopes to prove
that the mythical,so far, possibilities of
electrical smelting may become practical possibilities.
Mr. Erskine Smith is accompanying Mr. Fletcher on his tour of inspection, and expects to be back In
Grand Korks iu about a week.

FRIDAY,  AUGUST 23,  1907
An agitation is in progress with
regard to a general election. There
could be only one result if an appeal
were made to the people. The Liberals would be returned to power,
for the people of Canada are quite
satisfied with the manner in which
public affairs have been managed
The leader of the Conservative party
will shortly make a political tour of
the country, it would be well to
keep in mind the evidence of faith*
ful administration of affairs, and
meet the statements put. forth by
facts and figures which should satisfy
any reasonable man that the government of the day has the confidence
of the people, and that confidence
will not be withdrawn.
The Liberal government have developed the country, reformed the
customs service, exploited Canada's
natural resources, reduced taxation,
promoted trade and commerce, increased the revenue, made substantial surpluses, increased transporta
tion facilities, carried on a successful
immigation policy, legislated beneficially for the working man,
improved the great waterways,
practised a wiss economy, produced
a healthy Imperial sentiment, built
public works, made better laws
calculated to conserve our timber
and coal lands, kept the land for the
settler, and generally built up Canada for the Canadians. In days of
prosperity the people should not
forget the causes which have had to
do with the promotion and maintenance of good times. Nothing
should be done to intertere with a
political party that in a brief ten
years has made the Dominion of
Canada the leader of every other
nation on earth in the matter of
percentage of increase in trade. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier said he would make
of Canada a nation, how well he
bus progressed the people know,
and that they appreciate all hiB
leadership and guiding hand
will be amply demonstrated the
next time an appeal is made to the
Many reasons exist why the Liberal government commends itself to
the people. When in opposition
the Liberals pledged themselves to a
certain defined line of policy, which
they promised to fellow should they
be returned to power. This was in
181)5, and since that time eleven
years havo come and gone. The
Canadian people, thoroughly disgusted with the conduct of public
affairs under Conservative rule,
placed the Liberals in power in Iti'JO,
and history supplies the answer to
any question touching the good
faith and political honesty of the
government of the day. In 1896
the people were aroused by a series
of questionable transactions of the
Conservatives. The great Paciflo
scandal will never be forgotten
while Canadian history lives. The
famous telegram of the leader of the
Conservative party to a well known
capitalist to "send along another
ten thousand dollars" is indelibly
lixed on the political scroll of the
country, and the equally venal, although smaller transactions, such as
diverting 825,000, voted by parliament, tor a railway subsidy and using the same  in  the election of a
minister of the crown, are not yet
forgotten. The Conservatives for
years carried on a government which
secOred power by debauchery and
continued to enjoy the fruits of
office long after the will of the people, had its expression been faithfully recorded, would have consigned
it to the oblivion which was its
ultimate fate. To those who know
Conservative history, it appears the
limit of audacity that that party, or
what is left of it, should aspire to
conduct the government of Canada.
The provincial Liberal convention
has been called to meet in Vancouver on October I. Ten delegates
will be allowed for each member of
the legislature.
Fun and Money For Riders
The management of the Spokane
Interstate Fair will pay a swift rider
♦760 for a 20-mile rider, or at the
rate of 137.50 for each mile travelled.
That is the sum that will be paid
to the winner of the relay race,
which is becoming a standard attraction and a strong drawing card
at the Interstate Fair.
This year the sum of $1,500 has
been appropriated and will he divided among the fortunate winners, the
the money being divided 50, 25, 15
and 10 per cent. There will be no
entrance fee charged and no money
will be deducted from the prize
Conditions governing the races this
year will be the same as in previous
years. Professional riders and
horses are barred; riders must
use a cowboy saddle weighing at
least 25 pounds und must change
saddles every half mile, two miles
being ridden each day for 10 days.
The rider must change the saddle
unaided, but one man will be allowed to hold the extra horses and
bridles need not be changed.
Entries for tbe race will close
Saturday, August 31st, and the race
will be started on Tuesday, September 24th.

A new Boundary railway story is
being circulated, namely, thnt the
Kettle Valley line has acquired the
M dway & Vernon charter, and will

thence over the route of the M. & V.
The Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter is the only one of the three in
the Boundary that is not having
trouble to get coke enough to operate at full capacity. When President
Miller made that coke contract with
the International Coal & Coke Co.,
it was a good stroke of business.
One of the three furnaces at the
B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter was
blown out last week, leaving two in
blast. Lack of coke—the old story
—is tbe cause. This week it bas
been nip and tuck to keep two furnaces in operation, banking having
been resorted to more than once,
when cars of coke were known to be
within reasonable distance.

is that drastic pills are used. No

The Gipsy Girl
The Fort William, Ont., Morning
Herald has the following lo say of
the "Gippy Girl," which will be
produced at the Grand Forks opera
house on Friday evening, August
23rd, by the Juvenile Bostonian
Opera company:
"The second performance of the
Juvenile Bostonians was witnessed
by another big house last night in
the Auditorium, the little star performers producing that amusing
comic opera, 'The Gipsy Girl,'
which was enthusiastically received
by the audience. Tiny Halcyon
Martin is undoubtedly the prime
favorite, and upon her appearance
she was greeted with a big demon
stration, and her Bowery song and
dance, 'See,' was rendered in a man
ner which would be a credit to one
far exceeding her tender years. Babe
Mason as Cheesi was a very funny
character, and this talented young
lady constitutes a complete show in
herself. The part of Sir Archie
Arlington, a foppish young Englishman, was taken by Lois Mason,
und although a little deficient in the
real aristocratic 'culchawh' accent,
yet the representation was a very
pleasing one. Dutch Futz, a detec
tive, was ably presented by Ross
Cole, who put up another finished
performance, whilst Ruby Lang
made an accomplished Jack Livingston from Texas. One of the most
popular features of the evening was
the singing of 'The Land That's Far
Away.'   Babe Mason introduced the
names, nf several local celebrities and
thereby capivated the crowd. Ruby
Lang's rendering of the Venetian
rose song was another pleasing item,
whilst the rendering of the 'Kiss,
Kiss,' chorus was very entertaining.
Large houses are assured the little
actors during the remainder of their
stay here."
