Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, February 23, 1904
TWICE-A-WEEK
The City Council
The Staff in the City Office Remains
the Same as at Present.
The Financial Statement Is'Ably Defended by Mr. Hanington—Council Decides to Consider It Correct
Until Proved Otherwise.
The regular weekly meeting of the
eity council was held last evening in
the council chamber, Mayor i Hammar, Aid. Clements, Feeney, Hutton,
McCallum, McLellan and MeNee being present.
A lengthy report was read Irom
Engineer Reid to the water and light
committee, dealing with the condition of the water supply, and stating
that the timbers used inside of the
tank were not good for the water,
and that the escape valve should be
on the south side of the tank instead
of the north, as it is now. After a
a thorough discussion the report
was, on motion of Aid. McCallum,
referred to the water and light com
mittee to thoroughly look into the
matter and report at the next meeting.
s Tl|e meeting was one of the most
lively sessions held during the present term, and while there was no
quarreling or disagreement among
the members, there was a warm
passage at arms between H. C. Hanington, one of the city- auditors, and
Colin Campbell, who had charged
Messrs. May and Hanington, in an
open letter to the press, of producing a wrong financial statement.
Mr. Hanington explained fully
to the council the different
charges made by Mr.' Campbell in
his open letter. Then Campbell defended himself by saying the charges
were as he had stated, and he could
substantiate them. The ccuncilmen
were all at sea to know which side
was right or which wrong. They
were in the position of an elector
who had not made up his mind
which way to vote until after listening to eloquent orations from both
parties.
Mayor Hammar then called on
Messrs. Hanington and May, who
audited the city books, to defend
themselves against the attacks made
on their report by Mr. Campbell.
Mr. Hanington addressed the council at some length on behalf of Mr.
May and himself.   In part, he said:
He would like to know if any
member of the council, or any responsible ratepayer had challenged
the correctness of the statement, or
said it'was wrong. He had been a
resident of the city for the past four
or five years, and had always lived
a quiet, sober life, and had considerable at stake here, being a heavy
ratepayer. He did not like to have
any squabble, but when he was attacked he was prepared to defend
himself. A short time ago a local
jJvper had reported the mayor as
saying that the financial statement
was misleading. As soon as he had
seen this he called on the mayor arid
asked for1 ah explanation. The
mayor had stated if he had made
thiB  assertion an apology was due
the auditors, and that it would be
made in the presence of the councilors. Mr. Campbell appeared as
the sole critic. After vainly endeavoring to get the newspapers to take
the matter up without himself being
drawn into it,^..he had written the
letter making the charge of an incorrect financial statement , The
reason was that Campbell was sore
because he did not get the job himself, and that he thought he was the
only man in thc city who could
audit the books. There were a
dozen men in Grand Forks jtiBt as
capable auditors as- he (Campbell).
Mr. Hanington stated that Campbell
was not a ratepayer, nor even a voter,
and he not think the council was
justified in calling upon them to appear and defend their audit against
an attack by one who possessed
neither of these qualifications. They
had not craved for the job. Som.e
of the aldermen had asked them to
do so. He had been an auditor of a
gas and light company in a city of
10.000 people, and he considered
hiniBelf as capable to do the work as
Mr. Campbell. If the audit was
challenged, why did not the city produce their books, and if it was o Jnd
to be incorrect they were prepared
to defend themselves. It had not
yet been proved incorrect. The report was the treasurer's, and he
should be the one to produce his
statement. They had only audited
it, and were prepared to '.rove they
had made a correct one. Mr. Hanington went on aud dealt with Mr.
Campbell's letter from start to finish, explaining fully to the council
the figures which Campbell had tried
to ma*ke the public believe were being juggled with. If Mr. Campbell
had never seen such an incorrect
statement as the last one, he
had nevei looked at his own, or he
would have seen much worse. He
said that one statement which Mr.
Campbell had audited was so incorrect that the city had refused to
publish it.
In replying to Mr. Hanington's
remarks regarding the mayor's reported reflections on the financial
statement prepared by tho auditors,
Mayor Hammar suid he had promised to apologize if he had made tbe
remarks attributed to him, but he
did not think he had done so. He
thought he had been misquoted.
[The mayor stated that the financial statement was not put before
the public in the right form, and
while he did not think it was misleading, he said the majority of tho
ratepayers did not understand it.—
Sun, Jan. 29.]
Mr. Campbell was then called on
to substantiate his charge. He said
he had never indulged in personalties, and he was surprised  at  Mr.
Hanington doing so. He challenged
anyone to point toa single dishonest
act he had ever done in this city.
He acknowledged that every one
had his faults and no one was perfect. He then dealt with the financial statement as presented by Hanington and May,, showing to the
council where he thought the auditors were wrong.
The question was then discussed
hy the council. Some of the aldermen thought-one way, and some the
other way. The mayor said he failed
to see which side was right, or which
was wrong. Aid. Hutton said that
a new audit should be made, as the
ratepayers were dot satisfied as the
matter stood now. Aid. McCallum,
in replying to Aid. Hutton, said
that a new audit would not settle
the question, as Mr. Campbell or any
one else could say the same thing
about it. Until the Hanington-May
report was proved to be incorrect it
should stand. On motion of Aid.
McLellan, it was resolved that the
nuditors' report be accepted as cor-
reet until proved otherwise, and
that the auditors be exbonorated
from any charge of making an incorrect report.
The report of the finance committee, laid over from the last meeting,
was then taken up. The report dealt
with the city office staff and salaries.
The committee recommended that
the present staff be retained in office
and that salaries of the city clerk,
treasurer and solicitor be reduced.
The major thought that one man
in the city office could do the work
and was in favor of paying him $125
a month if necessary. He wanted
to go on record on this question, as
he had promised to cut down expresses when he took office. After
a long discussion, it was finally de-
ided to let the staff remain as it is
at present, the salaries to be unchanged.
A Serious Accident
Daughters of Mr. and Mrs. E. Disney
Badly Injured.
S
mi
One of Them Remaiued Unconscious for Fifteen Hours.
Both Are Doing as Well as Can Be Expected at Present.
A serious accident occurred yesterday evening at about i:30 o'clock,
in which little Cathie and Amy
Disney, of this city, received painful
and dangerous injuries. If) company with Mr. Barron's children,
they were driving home on a toboggan, drawn by one of Mr. Barron's
horses. Tho animal became frightened from some unknown cause,
and started to run away. Mr. Barron's lityle girl, who,was driviug,
got excited and cast the lines aside
and rolled off the sled, but the Disney girls stayed on, and the horse,
as the toboggan commenced running
up on his heels, began to kick and
increase his Bpeed. At the Great
Northern depot the rig ran into an
electric  light  pole, and  both   the
girls were thrown off with great violence. When picked up they were
unconscious. They were carried to
their home, and Dr. Northrop was
immediately summoned. On his
arrival, he found that. Cathie was
suffering from concussion of the
brain, and that Amy had received a
broken nose and was badly cut on
the head, face and mouth, besides
receiving a severe bruise on her leg.
Cathie did not regain consciousness
until this morning, fifteen hours
after the accident occurred. At
present they are both doing as well
as can be expected. It was almost
a miracle they were not killed, as
the horse was latched to life toboggan with traces only, and there
wu-, nothing to keep it. from running onto bis heels.

concerning the new Ass -ssm -nt Ao;

When   Crispi Was  Lucky
Being Penniless.
m
THE late Francesco Crlapl, the
great Italian statesman, once
escaped arrest as a revolutionist
because he did not have a sou wherewith to buy a candle. The Btory Is told
In the "Courrler des Btats-Unls" (New
York):
"On January 14, 1858. Francesco Crispi, the recently deceni:ed Italian statesman, then a political refugee In Paris,
received from an Italian friend connected with the Paris, opera two gallery tickets' for the performance of that
evening, which the Emperor and Empress were expected to attend. Crisp!
and his wife were on th* point of starting for the theater wJii>n the latter exclaimed: 'Frances, o '.her:- si,all we'get
a candle?' They were In such destitution that they hnd neither candles nor
matches, nor yet the wherewithal to
buy them. Going to the opera would
involve groping for- their room at mtd-
nlght and gnlng to bed In total darkness. Too proud to confess their condition and to borrow a few sous they
regretfully denied themselves the promised treat, remained in their room,
and retired before the twilight had
faded.
"On the following, morning they
learned of Qnlni's nttnr.k on the Emperor, the police r.-tlds, and the arrest
of all Italian revolutionists found In or
near th? theater. If Crispi had been In
the hcu^e he would certainly have heen
among the first arrested, for he was
kmwn ns an ardeni d's'lple of Mazzlnf.
"The porsesslonr ot a tallow candle
and a match mlrjh*. have altered completely nr.t only his own destiny, but
also that of Itoly!" ,

famed "Scenic Line of the World,'.'
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to custom ]K)ints.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains fast
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of u competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Curious Bits of Mews.
It Is somewhat humbling to our p ...

that the statue has lost Its signifies iw-
as the symbol and personification ot
the broad political and industrial freedom which is enjoyed In the tinned
States. It simply means that no satisfactory method of lighting tie to-ot)
has been devised, and that the Llgnt-

The reputation of Germany a* a
country where life io regulated as much
as possible In accordance with the behests of science la borne out bv the regulations of the German military authorities concerning the marching aud
"physical training of troops. The "physiology of marching" has recently been
the subject of careful lnvestlgatluii.
and the results ootalned are taken advantage of for the benefit of the German army. Among the conclusions
reached is that during continuous
heavy marching bhe rations •■■ut.plied
are n6t sufficient to replace the waxte
of carbohydrates, and that a day's rt^t
is" required after every three days'
marching, to enable the body to recover
Its normal power.
In typewriting 500 letters you waste
one hour In writing "Dear Sir"' and
"Yours very truly." Now, the total
annual number of letters sent throuKii
the post all over the world Is 8,000,000 -
000. Of course this Is not all comine-*
clal correspondence, nor Is It all typewritten, but for the purpose of havl'i*
some statistical starting-point it ,, tl',
be assumed that it is. To write "Dea:
Sir" and "Yours very truly"* for Urn
number of letters would take one tye
1st 16,000,000 tours,-niiowlng 300 work
ing days to the year, about 6,700 year:'
To translate this into an approxlnm
tion of its money value, allowing $10 at
the salary of the .typist and eight hour;
as the average day's work, the coi-i
would be $3,360,0^0.
The Wia'rton (Ont.) "Echo" recoro
a remarkable Instance of affection between dumb brutes. A Mr. Robeitso--.
lost a team of horses through the icf
on Colpoy's Bay, It appears that th(
gentleman mentioned is the own*?r of ;
dog—an ordinary collie dog—thai wat*
passionately fond of the anlmaij*
drowned, and they were in constar.i
companionship whenever possible. After the accident occurred, and when thi
horses were delivered from their wat
ery graves and pulled out on the ice.
the large crowd that had gathere-1
quickly dispersed, the horses being apparently "left alone In their glory." It
transpired later on, however, that the*
faltihl'ul dog, In his grief- for his lost
companions, refused to leave the spot
where they were, and was tenderly
licking the animals' heads and giving
vent to his sorrow in various other
ways. Effort* were made to console
the. bereaved canine and to attract him
froin the spot, but he went not. and refused to be comforted. He remained,
it is said, near the scene of the accident till the bay was enm-ph-te'y en
veloped in datkness. The pnnr brut-;
then solemnly and sadly wei-ded bii
way to his master's home.
The other night Thomas J. White
a Brooklyn butcher, found it necessary
to remain In his store until alter midnight, to finish making up his account.!
for the week. Miss Maria Jacobs, hla
fiancee, was wotting .for him to escort
her to her home. White took six hundred dollars from the cash drawer an-ri
placed It in a wallet, whlcfo he put in
his pocket. He was Just about to don
his coat when he was seized with a nt
and fell to the floor. Miss Jacobs tried
to raise him up, but failed, so she ran
out of the store for assistance. Tne
first persons she met were two frowsy-
looking fellow*, who readily responded
to her appeal for help. They rushed
Into the store, and while one of them
lifted the prostrate White the othfci
lifted the wallet out of the butcher'?
pocket and fled. Miss J i cobs g?i"e pursuit. The other stranger promptly
dropped White, ran to the ftinney*
drawer, and, finding no monev ihere,
looked about him for something of
value to seize, Tiiere were juicy stoaks
aud toothsome chops, but he selected a
big bologna savMge and ran out with
the booty. The first stranger, In. the
meantime, had tucceeded In eluding
Miss Jacobs and getting away. When
she returned to the store the second
thief had also dtenppeared. A policeman was finally called to hunt for the
robbers, and a physician to attend
White. The doctor succeeded In b ing*
Ing White out of his fit, but the policeman failed to bring back the thieves or
the money.

thc French say. Men do not like this
kind of thing. It not only dingusts but
bores them. Tt is a particular klrd of

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the'execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good Bervice; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice. ,

DAILY NEWS
AN .11 THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
.FOR    ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of i the newspvper world have
been upon Tbe News for the past few
months, during whieh time several
departures .Have been made .which
hnve given thnt paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. Tbis latest move is to place
Tbe News at the price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in tbe future success of Tbe
News could lend the publishers to
make such n reduction in price.
Hut just ns the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon thc intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club tbe Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our scmirweekly giving you all
the home and district news, and
the big 12-pnge daily keeping you in
touch with events all over tbe world.
Send us your subscription to Thc
News, or if you would like to see
the paper first, write us and we will

Mount Sir Donald. In the Canadian
Rockies, which rises to the height of
10.700 feet, has just baen conquered for
rhe first time by the loot of woman.
Mrs. Ber-ans, the -mccessfu! climber, It
• voup" Kpgljrhwoman hailing from
Kent. While at Glider, on the Cana-
L,..n Kit-wit Railway, on her honey-
nii.cn trip round tne world, she heard
that vc y few mtn Hnd no woman had
-ver mt foot on tht- t-ummit of Sir Don-
ild., So she' resolved tn make the ascent; and was all the more anxious to I
do so as she heard that a Philadelphia I
lady had expresael her Intention of
being the first up. Mrs. Berens sue- .
cess fully accomplished the climb, !
though she had several very narrow1
escapes.
The other day,* when the jury In a
murder trial In the Louisville courts
had retired to their room, the foreman
said: "Gentlemen, this Is a serious case
we have to decide. A man's life
may be forfeited by our decision. How
many Christians are among us?" Nine
men raised their hands. "Will one of
you pray?" asked the foreman. One of
the oldest jurors said he would do hla
best. All knelt, and a most earnest
and Impressive player was offered.
Balloting was then begun. Several jur- '
ors were In favor of a life sentence,
and others for termb as short as eight
years. The Jury finally agreed on
eighteen years.
John Dillon's outbreak In the House
of Commons the other day, when he
called Joseph Chamberlain a "damned
liar," reminds one of the speech of Mr-
Martin, a member for Galway, In 1788,
which absolutely defies reproduction.
He denounced a fellow-member In language of unprintable disgust, and
could not resist the temptation of applying his words also to the number's
.-■Ister, who rat 'in the gallery of the
Mouse of Commons at the time. "These
I'onsonby's,"  hr  burst  out,   "are   the
curse of my country.   They are ,
personally and politically, from that
toothless old hag who Is now grinning
In the gallery, to the white-livered
scoundrel who is now shivering on the
floor."
A-most Interesting light Is thrown on
the approaches toward civilization
made by tbe people who dwelt in caverns in France during the stone age by
the discovery of a great number of
drawings of animals op the walls of
an ancient cave at Combaro'les, In ]
South-western France. Many of the I
drawing's, which represent, with sur-"
prising skill, reindeer, mammn:'i-* and
other animals now extinct In Southern
and Western Europe, hive become covered In the course of time w'/li thick
layers of stalagmite. Among tiie most
nterestlng pictures are some which
(■present horselike animate belonging
:o two different species, and s >me of
hese animals have halter? and other
.ttachments, plainly showing thit they
lad been subjected to tbe service of
■nan.
It was only a short time ago that the
able telephone became an adjunct of
Chicago restaurants where business
and professional men spend a few necessary moments away from the busy
affairs of the day. Now comes another development In the telephone service, which promises to become a universal and Indispensable feature of
railway trains. The Chicago and
North-western Railway recently
equipped a new train, known n.s the
"Overland Limited," for service between that city and the Pacific Coast.
Amongst Its features Is a telephone,
Installed In the observation car, from
which connection can be made with
any telephone system along the route.
A special wire of the local telephone
company is dropped over the roof of
the car and run through an opening to
the Instrument in the car, and by
means of a "monkey," or wall jacket,
connection Is made. The passenger desiring to telephone to any part of the
city or communicate with a long-distance point Is thus enabled to do so,
without leaving the cars, while the
train stops at a station.
