\   ->Q!d Council Vacated  Their
Seats to the Members-
Mayor  Outlines His Policy,
Which Will Be as Progressive as Possible
The old and the new city council
met in the council chambers at three
o'olock yesterday afternoon, the old
for the purpose of vacating their seats
to the mayor and aldermen-elect, and
the new for the purpose nf taking the
oath and being inducted into office
In the absence of Mayor Hutton.
Aid. Clements was chosen chairman.
Mr. Clements, in biking his Mat,
stated that the meeting was simply a
formality for the purposo of turning
their offices over to the new council.
If anybody had any speeches to make
now was the time to. make them.
Aid, McDonald said he took his defeat in the majoralty contest with the
beat of grace. He hoped the new
council woald do its duty, as the old
one had done. He wished the members the best of success.
Aid. Spraggett joined Aid. McDonald in wishing the new council success.
Aid. Cooper was glad to resign his
seat. He adviced the new council to
look after the flnancies of the city.
As a good many improvements would
have to be carried out during the coming year, he though it would be a
good plan to raise the taxation for
next year.
Aid. Clements said it was with
mingled feelings of pleasure and regret
that he left the council. His experience in the council during the past
three years, though arduous at times,
had also proven a valuable business
education. The contract with the
Granby company for power would
won expire, and it was a question
with him whether it would not be
better to put the city on a metre system when it was renewed. In future
he would be glad to render any assistance to the new council that he possibly could.
The old council then adjourned, and
tho new members took their seats.
Mayor Hammar expressed pleasure
at listening to the speeches of the old
council. It had been a clean election,
and there was no ill-feeling between
him and his opponent. Credit was
due the outgoing council on account
of its financial showing. He did not
believe in raising the taxes. The
people here now had not incurred the
present debt of the city, and it would
not be fair to make their burdens too
Returning Officer McCallum read
the declarations of the candidates in
the civic election. He also reported
the result of the election'.
Mayor Hammar stated that he was
not prepared to appoint the standing
committees until the next regular
meeting He would also defer the
appointment of police and licensing
commissioners until after the provincial elections.
In outlining his policy for the com
ing year, the mayor stated that he
was firmly of the opinion that all
street improvements should be made
of as permanent a character as possi
bly. He wis not familiar with the
water and light department, but lie
thought the metre system wuuld be
impractical at present on acci.unt of
tha cost it would take to install it.
The Granby 'ontract had not been a
good one, and when it expired lie
thought the best policy would he to
call for tenders for power. All wurk
Hone by the hnurd of woiks should lie
of a permanent nature. The health
and relief committee was generally
looked upon as a in|y),**..but nevertheless it was one of the luoSt important
in the council. A sfirl should be
made on a septic tank system during
the coining year. He did not .believe
in cutting tbe salaries of city era
ployees, and a union scale of wages
should be established for all street
work, The policy of the new council
should be as progressive as possible.
He was in favor of encouraging new
industries, and of rendering every as
sistance possible to the fruit growers
of the valley. He hoped the council
would do business in a business like
Aid. McCallum said it would be
necessary for the members of the
council to work shoulder to shoulder.
The jnalter. of securing the best bargain in power would be a difficult one
to solve. Any assistance that could
be rendered the fruit growers should
be given. The estimates should be
brought down at the earliest possible
moment, so the council would have
something to work on.
Aid. Woodland thought the ground
had been pretty thoroughly covered
by the preceding speakers. He would
be glad to receive suggestions from
the citizens and the old aldermen.
Aid. Donaldson agreed with the
mayor in regard to inaugurating a
progressive policy.
Aid. Mcintosh, Hardy and Horner
had nothing to say.
Mayor Hammar said he did not ex
pect to act during the coming year
without remuneration. He supposed
all the ratepayers were aware that
he would not work without a salary
The couneil then adjourned until
Monday evening, February 4th.
B. C. Dividends
It has been learned from New
York, unofficially, thut the directors
of the British Columbia Copper company have definitely decided to declare, sometime this month, a fifty-
cent quarterly dividend payable next
month out of earnings of the company, As the capital of the company is (2,000,000 in $5 shares, this
means a return of 30 per cent per
annum on the par value, or approximately 16 per cent on the market
price of the stock, which is now
about £13 per share. It is asserted
that large Wall street interests are
now in this property, which is be
ginning to attract more and more
favorable attention in the oast.
With copper at its present high figure, ns soon as thc B. C. Copper
company is able to oveicome all
power, fuel and car shortage obsta
cles and place its three big furnaces
in blast, all residents of the Boundarv know that it will have no difficulty in making very substantial returns on the investment, and the beginning of its era of dividend paying
will be welcomed.

candidate for Grand Forks riding,

city at the opera house next Friday

J. B. Henderson, who is superin
tending the construction nf the West
Kootenay Power k Light company's
enlarged plant at Bonnington Falls,
arrived in the city last Friday for a
short visit with, his family. Mr.
Henderson states that the West Kootenay company is now sending 2000
horsepower of electric onergy into the
Boundary country.
The Provincial nominations for the
Grand Forks electoral district were
held at one o'clock Saturday at the
government office in this .city. The
following nominations were announced
by Returning Officer H. C. Kerman:
Herbert Watson Goegory, machinist,
Grand Forks; Ernest Miller, barrister,
Grand Forks; John Mclnnis, miner,
Geo Holford, the Kamloops stockman, who also ownes a ranch near
this city, arrived in town last Friday,
after an absence of about six-months.
He intends to spend a month or five
weeks here.
The last two days hns been busy
ones in the vicinity of the Winnipeg
hotel. When Landlord Johnson
arose Monday morning it was with
the firm resolve in his mind to do
nothing but saw wood. After taking
a goml view of the mammoth woodpile, however, he retracted from do
ing anything bo rush, and proceeded
to put about seven Hindoos to work
on about as many cords of wood.
These swarthy men engaged in
ninnipiilnting suws nf various kinds
have been u source nf much interest
to citizens, and it is doubtles the
best attraction the city has hud since
the night of the Novelty Amusement
company. Mr. Johnson cites nn
amusing incident in connection with
the wood-sawing contract. Yesterday, in a moment of generosity, he
sallied forth to the scene of action,
armed with a liberal quantity of the
stuff that made Milwaukee so famous. Between drinks the men
wiped the glass with their mittens.
Noticing one of them persistently refusing the proferred nectar, Mr. Johnson concluded the man must be n
tetotaller, and returned to thc house.
A moment later man entered nnd
performed sundry maneouvers that
the genial landlord took to mean
"Old Crow"—and he obliged. Mr.
Johnson says if there is a tetotaller in

The Spokesman-Review recently
contained the following interesting
story: A few days ago a number of
mining men were assembled in an
office in this city discussing various
topics relating to the mining industry and its benefits to Spokanr.when
the subject of British Columbia
mines came up. I. K. Jarnagin,
ivhn hns kept iii touch with conditions, snid: ."I have a list of 125
names of men who claimed Spokane
as their home, thnt made fortunes in
that country, from #25,000 up.
This only covered the period between 1894 and 1902, the amounts
that have been made since then I
have no account of. The districts
from which this wealth was taken
included East Kootenay, the 81ocan,
Ymir, Camp McKinney and possibly
one or two others, but there is not a
name on the list from the Boundary
country. Had I a list of the men
who have made strikes in that sec
tion, they would increase the num
ber very materially."

The New Strike Bill
The Dominion government measure
providing for the compulsory investigation of strikes and lockouts inter*
upting the operation of public utilities
is of wider scope than originally pro
posed, and strikes at the root of the
labor problems of Canada as shown by
the experience of past years.
The bill contains a provision making it an offence for any person to incite others to declare or continue a
strike or lockout prior to or pending
the referring of the dispute to a board
of conciliation and investigation. The
difficult questions of the rights of employees to become members of labor
organizations and of employers to employ men whether members of labor
orgunizations or not are met hy special provisions. These state it shall
lie an offence for employers to declare
lockouts simply because any of their
employees are or may become members of labor organizations, and that
it shall be an offence for employees to
strike simply because employers take
on men other than members of labor
organizations. A provision is included whereby, in the event of both parties agreeing to bo bound by recommendations of any board, the findings
shall bind both parties as a rule of
Taken generally, the bill provides
for the prevention and settlement of
industrial disputes the same kind of
machinery as exists at present through
the ordinary courts for dealing with
disputes between private individuals,
with tho exception that the parties
are restrained on pain of penalty from
declaring strikes or lockouts until the
difference hns been ainibahly settled
or investigated. Intelligently formed
public opinion rather than coercion is
expected to govern the parties in their
attitude toward each other after the
differences have been submitted to the
tribunal provided by law.
Lite advices from New York say
that the Granby company has during
the past year earned approximately
82,130,780 net, or $15 on each "new
share, par value $100. During the
year four dividends of three per cent
each were declared, calling for the
payment, of $1,620,000, leaving $510,-
780 either for new construction or to
be added to'the surplus account. The
net surplus on Jane 30, 1906, was
$2,547,7fW. ,-
The company's o'utput in the twelve
months just ended was 19,779,090
pounds of copper, for' which an average price of* about 19.278 cents was
received, comparing with a production
in the fiscal year ended June 30,1906,
of 19,939,004 pounds, Bold at an
average of 17.18 cents per pound.
A. B. W. Hodgfes, the general
superintendent of the company, recently said:
"Wc have eight blast furnaces, and
two of them are large ones. We have
three of the six smaller furnaces now
enlarged and hope to have the other
three enlarged some time in February,
which will make our daily capacity
everywhere from 3000 to 3300 tojis.or
about 1,000,005 a year, which will
give us a copper production of from
25,000,000 to 30,000,000 pounds a
year. We have also increased our
converter plant by another converter
stand, having three now, and it gives
ur a convertei capacity of 30,000,000
to 35,0d0,0I*0 pounds a year."
Official figures have just been made
public regarding the output of the
Granby Consolidated for the calendar
year of 1906, and shows that the oompany shipped from its Phornix mines
during that time 22 per cent more ore
than in 1905,'and about 40 per cent
mote than during 1904, the figures by
months being as follows:
January   75,995
February   73,814
March  73,193
April  68,508
May  66,817
June  78,426
Julv  60,564
August  69,902
September  68,793
October  62,335
November  47,461
December  57,601
Total 801,404
On account of the troubles with
coke, power and car shortage, as well
as enlarging operations, tho output
of the latter part of the year was
smaller than u,sual. The smelter tonnage was 882,879, the difference being
due to the fact that a little custom ore
is treated at the Granby works.

No better proof of the influence
and popularity of W. W. B. Mclnnes is needed than the vicious and
slanderous attacks made upon him
by the Conservative press and spellbinders. While here both Mr. McBride and Thirty five-Dollars-per-
Montb - for • Workingmen Bowser
maliciously slandered him, and
every issue of the interior Tory
press teems with savage attacks directed at him. There is no reason
why this should he so. The people
of the interior are not directly interested in Mr. Mclnnes' candidature. He is a native of the province, and has a perfect right to resign a federal position and re-enter
provincial polititics if he so desires.
He has himself said that he would
rather be a cabinet minister of hiB
native province than governor of
the Yukon territory, and we believe
he is sincere in this statement. It
is also reasonable to believe that in
taking this course he was prompted
by patriotic motives—a desire to
save British Columbia from again
falling into the bands of the Tory
machine, which bas given away the
people's lands so powerful corporations during its brief tenure of
Premier McBride, in his speech at
the opera house last Thursday night,
stated that he made a good bargain
with the Grand Trunk Pacific and
that he dealt directly with the company. Both of these statements are
false. He never had an interview
with the Grand Trunk Pacific, and
he never put pen to paper to conclude a deal with that company.   It
W. J. Bowser told the people of
Grand Forks last Thursday night
that the Toronto Globe was one of
the staunchest defenders of the
Knien island deal. This is an unvarnished falsification. The Globe
commented favorably upon the first,
report sent out of the alleged deal
made by the McBride government
with the Grand Trunk Pacific Ruilwuy company fnr the Knien islam'
townsite. Bui nt the lime theGlnl.c

note for £40,000 for his share in the
Conservative party in this, because
all governments prior to the McBride
regime were composed mostly of
Premier McBride blandly told the
people of Grand Forks that there
hnd heen more miles of railway
constructed during his administration than at any previous period,
and intimated that his party should
be given the credit for it. Yet it
is well known that when, a couple of
years ago, the peolpe of the Boundary
clamored for a railway policy, the
legislature was adjourned without
any legislation on this; subject being
enacted. It is also a well known
fact that the McBride government
would have prevented, had it been
possible, the Grand Trunk Pacific
company from running through the
province. Mr. Mcbride personally
stumped this province against the
Grand Trunk Pacific and tbe Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern all' along
the line.
.It would he interesting to know
when the Grand Forks opera house
was enlarged. The seating capacity
of that building is only between 200
and 300, and everybody who attended the McBride meeting could have
found a seat. Yet the the press dispatches to the Tory papers state
that tnere were 600 people present.
Fully one-third ot those wbo did attend were non-voters.
Premier McBride, seaaking in this
city, stated that he believed the federal customs service was a huge campaign machine. No one in Grand
Forks has heard the customs ollicers
say a word during the present campaign. On the other hand, provincial officers (we believe supervisors of
roads and trails come under this
classification) have exhibited undue
activity ever since the house was
McBride didn't say a word ex
planatory of how his government
wrecked the Midway k Vernon en
terprise. The people of Midway
and Vernon will speak more elo
quently on this subject on tbe 2nd
of February than the premier could
have done.
It is ton bad that McBride was in
too much of a hurry while here to
give a full explanation of the C. &
W. land grant. He failed to state
that the coinpany had not carried
out its agreement with the government, and therefore was not entitled
to a single acre of land. Mr. McBride's version was very misleading;
but after his straightforward dealings with the coul locators, we are
loath to believe th-it it was intentional. The only explanation we
can offer is that he lacked the time to
give a detailed account of the transaction.
A vote for Miller means nn en-
dnrsntinn of McBride's broken
pledges to the southeast Kootenny
coal locators.
A vote for Gregory is a vote in
fnvnr of nn honest, businesslike administration.
•'Better terms"—in fact,"the hest
terms—enn more rendily'be secured

with the federal government.
The laboring mnn will conserve
his hest interests by casting his ballot for Gregory.

4. Surveys of Crown lands available for settlement, and where practicable parcelling them into small
holdings as part of an immigration
6. Repeal of School Act and return
of a system of State education.
6. Revision of the laws of placer

of the danger of inadvertent forfeiture.
7. No alliance with those revolutionists who would destroy our system
of government and haul down our
flag; but on the contrary, co-operate
with that great body of labor which
would reform abuses in a constitutional way.
Our policy is defined by our stand
on the measures brought before the
House, plus our aims regarding other
measures which cannot be introduced
by an opposition but only by the government.   TheBe are:
1. The creation of a department of
labor and information; subjects too
important to be left, as at present,
without shape or provincial guidance
to guard us against undesirable immigrants.
2. Full inquiry into water records
and irrigation, and while protecting
prior rights, providing for a wider distribution of water available for irrigation purposes.

was adopted by the government and
passed unanimously.

Perhaps it is in the neck or shoulders. First thing is a good rnb with*1

muscles Nerviline gives them flexibil-

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 bo 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 in
gradients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials,'whioh drug!
gists 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.

Few Kokanee in Christina Lake
A report says that great consternation exists among the settlers
around Christina lake over the fact
that their favorite fish, known as the
kokanee, is exceptionally scarce this
winter. The various ranchers around
the lake for the past ten years have
made a regular business of kokanee
fishing, shipping many tons each winter to Spokane and other markets. It
is said that these fish have suddenly
vanished from the waters of the lake.
There are two reasons offered for the
nonappearance of this fish this winter,
