Resolution Approved Regarding Divisional Point
on G. N.
Hindu Question and Electrician's Building the Main
An adjourned meeting of the city
council was held in the council
chamber Monday evening, Mayor
Hamndar, Aid. Donaldson, Horner,
McCallum, Mcintosh and Woodland being present.
A communication from E. C.
Morgan,superintendentofihe S.F. &
N., stated that the council would
likely bear direct from St. Paul in
reference to the following resolution,
which had been drafted by tbe committee appointed by the' mayor at
the last meeting:
Whereas, The citizens of the city
of Grand Forks are desirous of having
Grand Forks made a divisional point
on the Great Northern railway, with a
•iew of building up the mutual inter*
eats of the city and the railway company; and,
Whereas, The natural position of
Grand Forks makes it a desirable location for large commercial enterprises
and, we believe, well adapted for a
railway centre and divisional point;
Whereas, Inviewof pastexperiencea
of friendly relations existing between
the citizens of Grand Forks and the
Great Northern Railway company;
therefora be it
Resolved, Thut the city council of
the city of Grand Forks correspond
with the proper ollieials of the Great
Northern rail wuy and render any reasonable assistance to bring about the
conditions herein mentioned, which we
feel assured will be beneficial alike to
the city and the railway company;
ind that a copy of this resolution be
forwarded to President James J, Hill,
Ht. Paul, and to R. C Morgan, Spokane, superintendent of the Spokane
Falls k Northern railway.
A petition was read from the
property owners at the corner of
Fourth street and Victoria avenue,
asking for a two-inch water main
from Winnipeg avenue, ns the present one-inch pipe wus insufficient to supply all the consumers.
The council agreed with the petitioners, and decided to grant the
request as soon as the necessary material could lie ootained.
Tbe water and light committee
was instructed to call for tenders for
six 49-foot electric light poles.
The request of the residents near
the old power house for a street light
was referred to the water and light
committee, with instructions to investigate and report.
Tbe council authorized the chair-
main of tbe water and light committee to purchase supplies for his department.
The chairman of the board of
works reported that the opening of
Gold street would cost about 875.
Tbe mayor and aldermen seemed to
think that it would be establishing a
bad precedent if the city should do
this work, as similar requests would
pour in from all sections of the town.
tbe laying of a three-plank sidewalk
from Winnipeg avenue to Mr. Gilpin's residence. Referred to board
of works, with power to act.
Messrs. Geo. Chappie and F. E.
Cooper made the request, on behalf
the of K. of P. and I.O.O.F. lodges,
that the council close a short street
north of the city cemetery, as these
societies had purohased several lots
in tbat locality which tbey wished
to incorporate in the cemetery and
use as a burial grounds for deceased
members. The project met with no
opposition from the members of the
council, and Messrs. Chappie and
Cooper were assured that a bylaw,
framed in accordance with their request, would be brought in.
Tbe Hindu problem occupied the
attention of the council for over an
hour. Mr. Walter Hadden was
present, and addressed the council
on tbis subject. He vividly depicted the filthy mode of living of
tbese people, and* their custom of
making. indecent exposure of their
persons. He suggested driving tbem
out to Mi. Holford's barn near
Ward's lake. He also asserted tbat
Mr. Neil McCallum, who owns the
buildings they occupy at present,
bad expressed a willingness to have
them 'burned down in order to get
rid of the Sikhs. The aldermen were
all of the opinion that the residents
of tbe West end had a kick coming
regarding this nuisance, and that it
was time to act. The mayor saw
no reason why tbis city was not as
well able to handle tbis question as
Vancouver. If the council made a
recommendation to the police com
missioners, he would make a strong
plea for it. The more severely these
people were dealt with, the sooner
the trouble would end. In the meantime he would instruct Chief Savage
to tell the Hindus what was expected of them.
The question of employing « new
teamster also came up, as there appears to be some dissatisfaction with
tbe man who at present holds this
position. The matter was left in the
hands of the chairman of tbe board
of works until tbe next meeting.
Tbe matter of the sale of the old
power house was held in abeyance
until the city's title to the lots can
be ascertained.
The question as to the advisability
of purchasing the Waterston building for a workship for the city elec-
trian took up a great dial of time.
Those opposed to the purchase advanced the argument mat the fire
chief had recommended the erection
of a barn for the city team more
convenient to the fire hall, and that
if tbis plan is carried out the old
barn could be remodeled into a workshop, in which event tbe city would
have no use for the famous Waterston building. It was also pointed
out that by building a barn sufficiently large to store hay in it, a saving of about $7 per month could be
made in the feed bill by purchasing
in large quantities at the right season of the year.
Aid. Woodland moved, seconded
by ild. Donaldson, that the city
purchase the Waterston building for

The Midway <fc Ven.on railway
project, which has beeu in a soporific
condition for a year or two, is likely
to become active this spring. It is
said that the only thing now being
waited for is the extension of the Dominion subsidy, a bill for which has
already been introduced at Ottawa
and has every likelihood of passing.
There is yet considerable snow on
the Kettle Valley linegrade,and it is
not now expected that a start will
be made at tracklaying until after

bridge across the Kettle river at
Third street is progressing favorably, and it is rapidly nearing completion.
Mr. R. A. Henderson, the popular
Kettle Valley line engineer, who responded to the toast "The Ladies" at

treated his subject in such a scholarly
manner that it is now generally believed that he is a widower instead of
an old bachelo*.

No. 45, Wednesday evening, in his
offieial capacity as grand master of the

powerful address on the order. Ho
congratulated the lodge on the excellent manner in which the degree had
been put on, referring especially to
the work of the conductor, Mr. John
KavanaugR, whose histrionic ability
he praised very highly. He also complimented the lodge on the efficient
method in which the business was
conducted, stating that he could say
without exaggeration that the books
might be taken as a model by any
lodge in bis jurisdiction. He concluded his speech with an eloquent
peroration on Odd Fellowship.
Mr. Geo. Chappie, the noble grand
of the lodge, presided at the banquet
which followed. Mr. Chappie established a reputation as a humorist. All

after-dinner speaker. Speeches and
anecdotes were given by the following:
The grand master, Messrs. Walter
Hadden, David Whiteside, A. L.

FRIDAY, MARCH 15,  1907
The speech from the throne is, taken
as a whole, a very satisfactory document, and some sensible legislation is
announced for the present session of
the local house. Some of the most important measures to be considered are:
A bill providing for setting aside
a certain portion of the public domain
for the establishment of a provincial
university, to be independent of McGill; a reduction of taxes on real and
personal property, and a bill dealing
with the Southeast Kootenay coal and
petroleum licenses, the validity of
which have been questioned. If the
government deals wisely with the
first-mentioned subjects ; succeeds in
lightening the burdens of the taxpayers in the second instance, and
manages to arrive at a satisfactory solution of the Southeast Kootenay
muddle, the people of the province,
irrespective of party affiliations, will
undoubtedly give Premier McBride
absolution for a large number of the
political sins committed under his
former administration.
It does not take some people long
to learn the ways of this world. It is
reported on good authority that John
Mclnnis, socialist member for this
district, traveled to Victoria on a C.
P. R. pass.       '   ,
So many Conservatives from this
city have been in Victoria during the
past two weeks that it is evidently
puzzling the premier how his party
happened to lose this constituency.
Banquet Tendered Mr. Menly
The complimentary banquet tendered Lloyd A. Manly by his friends
at the Yale hotel Wednesday night
was attended by about fifty prominent
citizen's. Mr. Traunweiser, the proprietor of the Yale, had prepared
one of those characteristic menus
which has made his house famous on
former occasions of a similar nature.
On this occasion he excelled all previous efforts, if such a thing were possible; and the service of the dinner was
all that could be asked for.
After the guests bad done ample
justice to the innumerable good things
spread before them, the following
toasts were offered and responded to, Mr. A. B. W. Hodges acting as
toaslmaster: "The King"; music,
"God Save the King"; "The President
of the United," F. B. McKeehan and
H. W, Warrington; music, "The Star

May Be Main Line
Present indications are that prelimi
nary work on the new cut-off of the
Spokane Falls & Northern road between Springdale and Chewelah, a distance of 22 miles, is to be commenced
at once, says a dispatch from Spring
dale. A work ' train with a crew of
nearly 100 Italian Ie borers came up
from Spokane Tuesday morning, and
from all that can be learned they are
to be stationed at Springdale for the
next three or four weeks. This
taken to mean that the outfit is to be
used in gathering up ties and othe.
preliminary work necessary to be done
preparatory to the starting of actual
construction work on the new cut-off.
By the building of this cut-off a great
deal of crooked track will be eliminated, as will also several miles of
very heavy grade near Springdale, the
new piece of road making possible a
1 per cent grade as against a trifle
more than a 3 per cent grade now in
Rumor has it that this line may in
time be made the main line of the
Great Northern between Spokane and
the coast, and the present policy of the
company in straightening out the
many curves in the track and obtaining better grades w herever it is possible to do so, even at a heavy expense,
tends to strengthen this rumor. Near
Kettle Falls the same crew of surveyors that secured the present favorable
route for tho Chewelah cutoff, is now
at work on a survey to straighten out
the track near that point, and ut the
same time do away with the present
heavy grade between Marcus and
Meyers Falls. This new section of
the road, which it is repoi ted also will
be constructed this spring, will run
direct to the town of Kettle Falls, instead of leaving it nearly three miles
off to one side, as the present line
does, besides doing away with the
curves and grades mentioned above.
Important Business Deal
A business transaction of considerable magnitude was consummated
this week, when W. C. Chalmers, of
the Palm fruit and confectionery
store, purchased the stock and fixtures of Mr. John Donaldson's store.
Mr. Chalmers will take possession
on the first of the month, when be
will combine the two stocks by moving his own to the stand occupied
by Mr. Donaldson. The many
friends of Mr. Chalmers w 11 be glad
to learn that he is meeting with evident success. Mr. Donaldson has
not yet fully decided as to his uture
plans, but states that he may possibly remain in the city during the
co'ning summer.
A party of Great Northern officials
passed through the city early Wednes-
d ty morning. They traveled by spe-
cial train, and made a tour of inspection as far west as Oroville, the present terminus of the line. The party
returned to Spokane the same day.
The meeting nf the hoard of tradi
culled for Tuesday afternoon   was.
postponed   In  simie future date, as
very of ihe members were on  hand.'
A Victoria dispatch says thnt nt
a special meeting of the benchers,

Boorish and Treasonable
The three Socialists, headed by
Hawthornthwaite, of the British Columbia legislature refused to rise when
Lieutenaant-Governor Dunsmuir entered the house. It has always been
the custom of the members of provincial legislatures to rise and show their
respect to the representative of the
king or queen when they enter parliamentary bodies for the purpose of delivering the speeches from the throne.
It was a piece of boorishness and at
the same time a display of disloyalty
which will not redound to the credit
of the Socialists either in this or any
other piovince in the- Dominion. It
was also a personal insult, to the lieutenant-governor. It reveals the innate disloyalty of tne Socialists, which
they would like to display on a larger
scale were they possessed of sufficient
numerical streugth to do so. The Toronto Socials, in endorsing the action
of these disloyal members of the legislature, reveal what has long heen
known to those who have closely observed the Socialists in this and other
countries, that they are a treasonable
lot, and that if the opportunity were
ever afforded them they would tear
down the government and trample the
Union Jack under foot.—Rossland

GRAND FORKS, B. C. v Amsden's Co. Makes a Hit
All who remember the great popularity of the Roscian opera company
during a week's engagement here
about a year ago can form an excellent idea of the merits of the Amsden-
Roscian company that appeared last
night at the Keylor Grand in "The
Governor's Wife." Claude Amsden
and Hazel Davenport, who are great
favorites . in Walla Walla, take the
leading roles. Mr. Amsden has few
equals as a soloist and actor, and Miss
Davenport is a singer of the first
rank. Miss Bessie Bacon, who takos
the part of Thelma, is a promising
prima donna, who was received with
much favor by the audience last night.
Walter C. Wilson, tenor, also covered
himself with glory and won his way
to the hearts of the crowd.
The chorus is made up of very
pretty girls who can sing as well as
dance. The play goes oft' with a snap

what about those who have to listen?
Friends are persons who seem to

us of our mistakes.

Great Specialists In Stomach Catarrh
Though often they fail to gi ve even
temporary relief, Mr. W. Seymour, of
Huntsvill-3, Out., cured himself with
Ferrozone. • "My trouble," lie says,
"was chronic catarrh of the stomach.
There was constant bad taste*- in my
mouth, I was costive and usually nau-
eated before and after meals, I also
hod a gnawing sensation in the stomach. Ferrozone gave me great relief,
and Ialso used Catarrhozoone, which
is good for catarrh. Although it took
a number of boxes of Ferrozone, I got
back my health, und today am quite
well." For stomach catarrh, indigestion and kindred disordersjnothing excels Ferrozone. In a thousand cases
it has proved a wonderful success. Try
