Health and Relief Committee
Make an Exhaustive
The regular bi-weekly meeting ot
tbe city council was held in the
council chamber Monday evening,
Mayor Hammar, Aid. Donaldson,
Horner, McCallum, Mcintosh and
Woodland being present.
Aid. Mcintosh, chairman of the
health and relief committee, reported
that the committee had taken all
possible precautions to prevent the
spread of diphtheria, although it had
been denied that the children now at
tbe city hospital from File were
actually affected with that disease.
The mayor said the cases should
have been isolated* In his opinion
it was unwise tojbring these children
to the hospital, and it should not
have been allowed. It was also reported that smallpox existed in Fernie, Cranbrook and Spokane. If
this was true, a quarantine should be
established against these places.
The council instructed the pound-
master to impound all stock run*
' • ning at large in the city.
Aid. Donaldson stated tbat the
city engineer had reported that a
great deal of city water was evident
ly neing wasted, and he suggested
that an inspection be made from
house to house    ,
Mr. Donaldson also asked if the
taxes on vacant property along the
water mains and electric light lines
could not be raised. These improvements enhanced the value of the
lota, and they should be assessed accordingly, thus contributing something toward the maintenance of tbe
systems. He thought a by-law
should be passed in accordance witb
these views.
The mayor said the council had
attempted to pass such a by-law
three years ago, but could not make
it stick. He suggested that the assessment might be raised.
Tbe city solicitor stated that, without looking fully into the matter, he
was of the opinion that tbe Municipal Clauses Act made no provision
for the imposition of such a tax.
The mayor and Aid. Donaldson
favored this corporation joining the
Canadian Union of Municipalities.
The mayor stated that people wbo
had purchased property at the last
tax sale were complaining because
they could not get the deeds for it.
The city solicitor stated that there
had been an error in the Act under
which the tax sale by-law had  been
On motion, tbe board of works
was instructed to procure boom logs
for tbe protection of the piers of the
new bridge.
The Mayor said that something
should be done about the extension
of First street, so that residents of
tho Nortli addition could get to tbe
city in tbe event of high'water in
the spring. Wellington avenue
should also be improved, and' Winnipeg avenue should be covered with
gravel from the C. P. K. track to Mr,
Fripp's residence.  He brought these j
matters up in order that provision
might be made for them in the esti- j
mates. I
The council instructed the hoard
of works to investigate the matter of
ripiapping the river bank this side
of the C. P. R. bridge, and to report
at the next meeting.
On motion of Aid. McCallum, the
mayor and city clerk were authorized to sign the contract with the
B. C. Telephone company.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Horner, a resolution was passed to
the effect that this city join the Can
adian Union of Municipalities, and
the clerk was instructed to forward
816 for one year's membership dues
and six yearly copies of the journal
published by the union.
Mayor Hammar reported that enquiries bad been made for electric
power for irrigation purposes, and he
thought it would be a good idea to
establish a regular schedule of prices.
Aid. McCallum stated he had re*
ceived enquiries from parties who
desired to purchase the old power
house. The matter was laid over
till tbe next meeting. '
The usual number of accounts
were ordered; paid.
The mayor thought some action
should be taken in regard to the
Hindoos. They were becoming a
regular nuisance.
Aid. Mcintosh stated that tie had
recently  received   numerous   coin
plainjs from residents in Columbia
regarding tbeir unsanitary habits.
On motion, the health and relief
committee was empowered to take
the necessary steps to safeguard the
public health.
On motion, the health officer and
chief of police were instructed to inspect the premises between theGran-
by and Valhalla hotels, and to recommend what steps should be taken
to improve the sanitary condition of
that block.
The following tenders were opened
and read for the approach lo the
Fourth street bridge:

cubic yard for gravel, to be hauled
from Bentley's lots; 4x4 culvert,
$75; 5x8 culvert, $120; riprapping,

recollection that such a promise had
been made—but the people who
were interetled in the bridge then
are not here now. The bridge, he
added, would cost nearer $9000 than
It was generally conceded by the
aldermen tbat a gravel approach
would be the most permanent and
satisfactory, but as it would requiae
over 3600 cubic yards of a fill, and
the city would have to purchase a
couple of lots in order to get the
gravel, it waB considered too expen-

Something to   Awaken   Interest in British Columbia
A. C. Flumerfelt Offers Pri/e
for Interesting Competition in Province
A competition which is calculated
to impel those who enter it, and the
public generally, to think of British
Columbia, its natural wealth and its
possibilities, baa been inaugurated by
A. C. Flumerfelt, formerly an officer
of the Granby Consolidated. There
is probably no individual with more
confidence in the future of this province than Mr. Flumerfelt. Personally he has thought considerably
along the lines of what is required to
develop to the fullest extent the resources of the Canadian west, which
are acknowledged to be vast. In order
to interest the public in these questions, and, incidentally, to obtain information for the outside world and
himself, he offers a jfSO prize fnr the
best answers to a series of questions, a
reliable committee to be appointed to
do the adjudicating. In a letter the
gentleman from Victoria submits his
proposition as follows:
Sir,—Now that the smoke and dust
of our political campaign are cleared
away, it occurs to me that this is an
opportune time to address oui selves
seriously to the general conditions we
find existing in our province, with a
view, if possible, of correcting any
defects and improving upon the methods presently obtaining.
It may be taken as a text that the
natural resources of any country are
the basis and foundation for commercial, manufactujing and financial
success. In my opinion no one will
dispute that nature has given to British Columbia blessings greater than
are possessed by any other similar
area on the continent of America, advantages so great that by their proper use men and women can here attain higher development than has
been conceived by the most hopeful in
its brightest dreams. Why should
not all—noW residents in British Columbia—work together to make the
best posaible use of these advantages,
by such oneness of' purpose, such
unity of action, such control—if not
elimination—of potty and personal
ambition us must come before such
attainment can bu reached?
The object of this letter is to induce our men and women to think. If
we refuse to learn to think, we refuse
to do our just proportion to the
world's work, and if it bo true that
life holds a record of our every deed,
and from no least responsibility can
we make our escape, what will be the
record of the average man and woman
of this province when its history i*i
In order to induce enrrespudence
and agitate, if I can for a better conception, a more comprehensive view,
and stronger—indeed an inflexible
and unchanging determination—on
the part nf the men and women of this
province, to place British Columbia
in the foremost ranks of the province.
of the Dominion, I am led to suggest
the following:
To the person giving the best replies to tho subjoined questions, the
most complete suggestions for improvement, and offering a solution of
our difficulties, looking toward the
Correction of tiie same, I will oiler a
prize of fifty dollars ($50) anil deposit the name with a committee who
shall he named, who shall adjudge
the competition I propose.
First—1< British Columbia as rich,
potentially, as the other provinces of
the Dominion?
Second—If so, are we sharing rate-
ably in the general prosperity of
Third—If not, why' not, and what
is requisite to bring about the desired
Fourth—Does the difficulty lie in
the fact of manufacturing, transportation facilities, population, labor, avail
able capital, or in ourselves?
Fifth—What steps shoijld be taken
to secure the permanent well beihg of
every man and woman in British Columbia?
I offer this prize for the province,
and shall ask the papers of Vancouver and possibly other points to publish a copy of this letter, in the hope
that abler pens and broad minds may
be induced to take up this subject actively, and in the last analysis of the
case, band togetner for the purposo of
securing to the residents of British
Columbia the enjoyment of their fullest heritage)

Commissioner of Lands and
Works Acts on Grand
Trunk Pacific Plans
The work of putting in a log slide
over the smelter dam was com
menced last Tuesday by the Yale-
Columbia Lumber company. A
boom will also be constructed on tbe
west side of the river to a point below the railway bridges. Tbis work
has been rendered necessary on account of the large cut of logs up the
North Fork this winter. They will
be floated over the dam to the company's mill at Cascade this spring.

Road Will follow Waterways
Through Province Except
Across Divide
The Grand Trunk Pacific railway
has filed the map of its proposed route
through British Columdia in the department of lands and works, the
routes being approved by Capt. Tatlow, acting chief commissioner, and
accepted under his signature by the
The chief characteristic of the route
is its avoidance of long bridges and
the following of waterways the satire
distance except across the divide between the streams at the head of
Decker lake and the headwaters of
the South Bulkeley river.
Contrary to general expectations,
the map of the proposed route shows
that the railway will not be built on
the west side of Bulkley river, but on
the east. This will take it through
the Hudson's Bay ranch and Morice-
town, and it will cross the Skeena
near Hazelton, thence turning abruptly to the southwest, following the
the north bank of the Skeena entirely
to its mouth. From that point it will
cross to Kaien island and the terminus at Prince Rupert.
If the coal deposits in the vicinity
of Telqua river are worked, it will be
necessary to run a branch line to
them and across the Bulkley. It was
expected, in view of these discoveries,
that the road would pass in the vicinity, but presumably in order to avoid
the heavy work near the bend on the
west bank near the confluence on the
Bulkley and Skeena, the course indicated above has been taken.
The agricultural areas traversed are
the valleys of the Nechaco and Bulk-
ley, and will doubtless in the near
future afford the line a large amount
of freight. Along the Skeena there
are immense areas of timber, in the
exploitation of which the Grand Trunk
Pacific will be a factor of great importance. . Of other portions of the
route to be traversed very little is
known. From Fort Gouge to the
eastern boundajy of the province the
country is extremely mountainous.
With the exception of mica and some
galena deposits near Tete Jaune
Cache, there have been no minerals so
far discovered, hut this is not because
they are not there, but rather that the
district has never been explored. Now
that the route is definitely decided
upon |it is probable that there will bu
a rush of prospectors next spring.
At Tete Jauuo Cache is probably
the best starting point for parties intending to explore the country bordering on the south fork of the Fraser
river. The following table of distances
has been compiled: Revelstoke to
Death Rapids (by steamer in summer),
44J miles; to mouth of Canoe river,
91J miles; up Canoe river to Boulder
creek rapids, 101 \ miles; to Grews
rapids, 113). miles; to Tete Jaune
Cache, 1941 miles. All these figures
are the total distance from Revelstoke.
R. H. Leo, P. L.S., who compiled theso
figures a few years ago, states that
large areaf of good agricultural land
exist in this section. At the Big Bend,
12,000 acres; on Canoe river, from section 13, township 4, to Cranberry
lake, 38,000 acres; from Cranberry
lake to Tete Jaune Cache, 26,000
acres, giving u total of 75,000 acres. (ftp libwmtg &mt

Sinee the route of the Grand Trunk
Pacific through this province was approved by the commissioner of lands

As predicted by The Sun when the
by-law was before the people, the
prospects of the new bridge costing
considerably more than $8000 are exceedingly bright. If the approaches
were constructed in the manner they
should be, the cost of the structure
would likely be about 810,000. There
is some satisfaction in having one's
prophecies verified, even if it takes a
year to do so ; but it is sometimes
rough on the ratepayers.

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 Oil 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.

Just think of the enormous strengthening power Ferrozone possesses,—
consider what it did for H. V. Potter,
well known in Kingston. "I was
subject to spells of dizziness. For
eight months I had intense pain in
my right side between the shoulders.
I was almost incurable with weakness
and lack of vigor. Often I scarcely'
ate any breakfest and felt miserable
all day. Nervous, easily excited,
troubled with heart weakness, I was
in bad shape. Ferrozone restored and
nourished me back to health in short
order." Whatever your weakn
may be Ferrozone will cure. Price
