THE CITY COUNCIL
Kettle Kalley Line Sidetrack
Ordered Removed From
Certain Streets
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday. March 20, 1908.
$1.00 Per Year in Advance.
Committee Reports and Routine  Business  Make  a
Long Sessiou
The regular biweekly meeting of
the city couneil was held in the
couneil chambers Monday evening,
Mayor Fripp and Aid. Clark, McArdle, McCallum, Miller, Rutherford and Woodland being present.
A communication was read from
H.Sheedy, local agent of the Spokane
Falls & Northern railway, asked the
council to quote a price for the extension of the electric lighting system to Weston and the installation
of twelve 32 and eight 16 e.p. all-
night lamps. The matter was referred to the water and light committee. Later in the evening the
committee reported that the eati
mated cost of installing the lights
was about $150. They quoted a
price of $32 per month, less the discount, for twelve 32 and eight 16 c,
p. lights. The report was approved
and the clerk was instructed to notify the railway company of the con
elusions arrived al by the committee.
A letter was read from the Canadian General Electric company in
reference to fire escapes. Some of
the aldermen thought that the school
house should be equipped with this
apparatus. '1 he matter was referred
to the water md light committee.
H. C. Hanington, secretary of the
school board, submitted the school
. estimates for tbe current year. They
were referred to the finance committee, with instiuoti ins to report at the
next meeting.
The finance committee reported
that, owing to the absence of the
city clerk, they had decided not to
recommend the payment of the
mouth's accumulation of accounts.
The committee also reported that it
would be dillieult to get u person to
act as pi-iundmastor unless a stated
salary is paid, and recommended
that in future this work be performed by the police olBoew. The
cuiiiinitlce was of the opinion that
it' people who had complaints tu
make against stock running al large,
would notify the proper offloers
promptly, the nuisuice could be
Stamped out. If the law ngiiinst
cuttle running at large is rigidly en-
fo etui at the outs t, the comn.itte
anticipates no trouble from this
suiuce later in the seaiori. The report was adopted.
The board of works recommended
that tenders for putting in booms to
prolect the jiiers of the Fourth street
bridge be called for, and that tne
work be dune by contract. On motion, tho board of works was instructed to carry out the recommendation, the ouncil specifying
the dimensions of the boom timbers,
as 8x12.
The chuirman of the board of
works also reported that I'. D. Mc- j
Donald had asked permission to
construct a sidewalk across the triangular lot owned by the city on
Donald street in front of   his   new
hotel.   'lltajiiattet-Vr'as  referred   to
the board of works.
The obstructions in the Kettle
river caused by the wreck of tbe
First street bridge was also reported
on by the board. The members of
the board were in doubt whether the
city, the government or the Yale*
Columbia Lumber company should
clear away the remains of tbo bridge.
Mr. David Whiteside, who is counsel for the Yale-Columbia Lumber
eompany, stated if a few pieces of
lumber would satify the cily, he
was of the opinion that the ease
of the city against the company
could be settled out of court. If a
fair basis of settlement could be arrived at, it was probably the best
thing that could be done. He made
this proposition without prejudicing
the case, however. The mayor
thought that any proposition for a
settlement should come from the
eompany. He felt eortain tbe members of council would oonsider any
proposal with that end in view in a
fair-minded spirit. Aid. MoCallum
recounted the incidents that led up
to the pending suit. The board had
estimated the damage to the bridge
at $1200. The matter was finally
referred to the board of works and
the city solicitor.
The chairman of the health and
relief committee stated that there
was no tenable grounds why tbe
city should assume responsibility
for the charity charge brought to the
Cottage hospital from Laurier. On
moti"n of Aid. Clark, a resolution
was passed to the effect that thc city
assist the health ollicer to collect his
bill in this case Irom Ferry  county.
The chairman of the water and
light committee reported that an u
tempt had been made to repair the
striker in the fire alarm system, bu'f
it still persisted in its refusal to
str ke.
Thc request of the chief for larger
quarters for the firemen should be
granted. The committee recommended that the room now occupied
by the police magistrate be given to
the boys, and that the police court
be moved into tbe council chamber.
After consiilersble discussion, and no
sasisfactory conclusion being
reached, Ihe matter was referred
back to the committee.
The chairman also reported tha;
the water main to tbe Keltle
Valley line roundhouse had frozen
and burst. The committee was in
doubt as to who should repair the
line—the eity or the company,
The petition of the property owners against tbe Kettle Valley line
siding  ut  Alexandra   and   Fifth
streets was again taken up. Both
Mr. Whiteside, solicitor for the railway, and Mr. K. A. Henderson, the
engineer, were present, and explained the changes in the original
plans to the council. Mr. Whiteside
also submitted the long-dlayed
plans of tho line through the city.
The matter was argued unlil a late
hour without a solution satisfactory
to both sides being reached. The
question was finally dispoesd of by
the passage of a acsolution, offered
by Aid. Clark, to thc effect that the
council would be satisfied if the company would remove that portion of
the tracks of its siding crossing
Fourth, Fifth and Alexandra streets
and the alleyway between Fourth
and Fifth streets.
The council then adjourned.
L
One Hundred Acres of Newby
Ranch Sold to   Eastern
Nurserymed
Will Plant a 50-Acre Orchard
This Soring and Start
a Nursery
A real estate deal of more than
ordinary import to the city and valley was closed last Tuesday, when
McCalluin & /McArdle sold 100
ncres of the old Newby ranch, which
adjoins the city limits on the west,
to G. M. Hill and Joseph Twcddic,
of Fruilland, near Niagara, Ontario;
Arthur I). Tweddle, of Spokane, son
of Joseph Tweddle, and J. D. Honsberger of this city. Nearly all of this
land is suitable for fruit growing,
and a fifty-acre orchard is to be
planted this spring. The price paid
is reported to have been $17*5 per
acre for the orchard land.
Messrs. Hill and Tweddle are oltl
nurserymen of Fruitland, and it is
I heir intention to establish a nursery on the land acquired here.
Phis enterprise should be profitable,
,is the fruit growing iudtistry in this
valley has grown to sucb dimensions that there is undoubtedly a
Held for two institutions of this nature here.
Mr. Tweddle has long borne the (lis
tinotion of being the best authority
on fruit growing at his Ont; ru borne,
and will therefore prove a valuable
acquisition of tbe valley. The Sun
feels certain that the people of the
district will join it in welcoming tho
newcomers.

Annual Feast of the  Local
Aerie Was Held Monday
Evening
A Splendid Program of Music,
Speeches, Recinations and
Anecdates
The annual banquet given by the
oeul aerie of the Fraternal Order of
Fugles, in their hall on First
street last Monday night, to
the members of the lodge and a few
visiting brothers, proved to be one
of the pleasantest dinner parties that
has assembled nround the banquet
board in the city, with the avowed
purpose of making merry, for many
a month. The business session of
ihe aerie lasted until a few minutes
nfter 11 o'clock, after which the
lablcs were brought out and loaded
down with a menu of which any
chef might have been proud. There
wai turkey and cranberry sauce in
abundance for the fifty odd guests;
salads, from lobster to potato; pae-
try galore; cheese, fruits and nuts,
and a varied assortment of liquid
refreshments. Just as the guests
lind seated themselves comfortably
iround the T-shaped table the clock
in the city hall steeple struck twelve,
and St. Patrick's day in the morning was announced by the distribution of shamrocks io the banqueters.
After the inner man had been satisfied toasts were proposed to the king
md the president of the Gutted
States. Then followed a brief program of speech-making, recitations,
music and anecdotes. Mr. Peter A.
'/,. Pare, Ihe worthy president of the
local aerie, spoke of the past achievements of the order, recounting ils
wonderful spread and growth all
over the continent. Mr. O. M. Bancroft, of Spokane, followed with a
.brief speech, from a visitor's viewpoint of the local lodge. Frank
Sherwood, of Ferry, enlivened thc
gathering with a few numerous anecdotes, Scotty Gilmour following with
a song. Thos. J. Benninger made
the most pretentious speech of the
evening, taking as his theme the future possibilities of the order. II.

earned them a liberal amount of applause. Besides the above, nearly
OJ crybody in the hall contributed
either songs, recitations, anecdotes

FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1908
A settlement has been made between the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway coinpany and the provincial
government regarding terminal facilities, etc., at Prince Rupert. The
terms of the agreement read that the
coinpany, in return for exemption
from taxation, binds itself to employ only white labor in Riitish Columbia, unless otherwise permitted
to do so by the government. The
company will also purchase all available supplies in the provinco. The
agreement is meeting with general
approval throughout the province,
and tliere is no reason why it should
be condemned simply because it
was negotiated by a Conservative
government.
An annually reclining problem
that has confronted the city coun
oils in the past, has been the nuisance of certain citizens to allow their
stock to run at large within the
limits of the corporation. Up to the
present time mere has been no
abatement of this practice, although
there is a stringent pound bylaw in
existence. The present council
proposes to take vigorous measures
at the outset to put a stop to the
practice by summoning violators of
the law in the police court and imposing severe lines. Any menus
adopted by the couneil to check tl e
nuisance will be heartily approved
by the citizens, who realize thai ii is
useless to attempt to beautify ll fir
premises ns long us cattle an allowed to run ul larg" and destroy ll e
resultsol their labors. It i-widen s

The "Circus Clown"
The Beggar Prince Opera com-
yany opened a week's engagement at
the Lyric last night and drew a
bumper house. The people of Calgary demonstrated tbat the appearance of an opera company was a de-
igbtful change from drama. Tl e
drama is popular, but tne opera
was a change. The company last
night made good. The bill opened
with the "Circus Clown," and the
performance greatly pleased the
crowd. There isn't much plot, just
enough to keep uniformity of
thought, but thc variation is nil the
more entertaining. The "Circus
Clown" is an old-time favorite, and
those who know opera know the
tory. Miss Ethel Balcb as Prince
taphael was the strong character.
She is pretty and shapely, and possesses a fine soprano voice of magnificent range and sweetness. She
was a distinct success. The comedy
predominates in the "Circus Clown"
and the funny pints were well taken.
Miss Vivian Forrest as Paolo was a
gem. She is the greatest female
comedian that has made a bow to a
Calgary audience in many a moon.
She is a peach. Sparadlop,Raphael's
tutor, calls fur an interpretation of
the comic, in which ability is required. Fred Golding in this roll
tilled the bill to a nicety. He is u
show in himself. George Murray as
Prince Casiinir was good, as was Jay
Taylor as Treinolini the Clown.
With a stronger chorus the Beggar
Prince Opera company would be all
that could be desired. As it is, the
coinpany is a clever group of entertainers, and theatre goers are in for
a week of thorough enjoyment.—

Ottawa Directs That Hindus
Be Sent Out of the
Province
foreign  Flood   Imminent  if
They are Successful in
Coast Courts
A Vancouver dispatch of the l"th
inst. states that orders were received
in that city from Ottawa that morning that the 183 Hindus arriving
there on the Monteagle several weeks
ago, who have since heen detained
at William's head and the detention
shed, should bt deported under the
brder-in-council against immigrants
coming from other than tho land of
their birth or naturalization. The
point nvolved is whether the Hindus came direct from Calcutta, transshipping at Hongkong. The C.P.R.
refused to guarantee for the Hindus'
appearance, and it is understood
that habeas corpus proceedings will
be asked, othejwise the men will be
sent hack on tho Empress.
If the Hindus should make a successful light in the courts a flood of
their fellows will ccme to Canada in
the near future. Fifteen hundred
Hindus aro now awaiting transportation at Hongkong. Recent arrivals
from Fiji state that favorable messages from tho first Hindu contingent that came have now reached
the Hindus there, and that 5000
Hindus are now saving up their
money to come to the Dominion.

"I feel confident that actual  construction on the coast section of   the
Grand Trunk  Pacific railway, east
from Prince Rupert, will he started
ahout the 1st of May.  We shall also
build the Kitamaat section with  all
. possible   speed.    There need be no
idle people in British Columbia for
the next three years.   Our company
will furnish work fur every   laborer
who seeks employment."   Kiicli was
the  definite  statement oonoerning
,00181   construction   made   by   Mr.
! VVainwright before he left the coast
fur the east this week in  his private
car, attached to the C.P.R, express.
i He was accompanied by Mr. d'Airy
Tate, assistantsolioltoj of the' company.   Mr, VVainwright was in line
humor.    He  declared  that  he had
received every consideration at the
hands of the provincial government,
and that a mutually advantageous
Isettlement had  been effected,    Mr.
| Wainwright also stated that ho did
'not think that lots in Prince Rupert
'would he placed on the market uu-
r ti 1 the 1st of next September.
It is well to keep in mind that the
next court of revision of provincial
voters' lists will be held on the lirst
Monday in May, and in order that
new names be placed on the list
which will then be made up it will
be necessary that they be posted in
the court house tor thirty days preceding that date. As these lists
may be the ones used at the next
Dominion election, it is important
that this point should not be forgotten.

LARGE JURPLUS
Hon. W. S. Fielding Makes a
Good Showing for Dominion Finances
Revenues Are Buoyant and
Public Debt Decreases in
Spite of Stringency
Ottawa, March 17.—Hon. \V. S.
Fielding, minister of finance, delivered the budget this afternoon,
speaking for an hour and a half. The
feature of the speech was the explanation of the government of tho
steps taken to assist the movement
of western crops.
No tariff changes were announced
and but one in exciee taxes.
It was a straight financial  state
ment, delivered before a full house
and crowded galleries.
In moving the house into com
mittee of way and means, lion. Mr
Fielding noted that the last volume
of public accounts in the possession
of the house is for nine months, ending March 31 last. He pointed out
the difficulty in making comparisons between periods of three and
twelve months, remarking that after
the passing of the present year we
should come to conditions under
which comparisons could be made as
usual.
"The outcome of the financial
period to which I have referred,"
aaid Mr. Fielding,"has proved somewhat more favorable than I anticipated in my budget speech of the
previous November. I had estimated
the revenue at 865,000,000, but the
actuul revenue for ni';e months was
$67,969,328, I estimated the ex*
pend't ire chargeable to the consolidated fund at $52,000,000, and the
actual expenditure proved to be $51.-
541,161.    I estimated a surplus of

Si:.,000,000, and the actual suplus
was $10,427,167. Tbat is, the surplus for the nine months was larger
than the surplus for any fiscal year
since confederation. The revenue
proved very buoyant, showing a
very large proportion of increase
over 1905-6."
Hon. Mr. Fielding then quoted
the ttatement of thc postoffice revenue and expenditures from 189G
to 1907, showing that in the first
mentioned year there had been a
deficit of 5^700,997, as contrasted
with a surplus uf nearly two millions
this year, and it was to be remembered that this great change was coincident with a very material reduction in postal rates.
Turning to another branch of revenue and expenditure, Mr. Fielding
drew attention to the fact that for
nine months the Intercolonial railway had a revenue of $6,248,281,
while tho working expenses were
^15,0-20,171.
The minister then  gave  the   following summary:

He reminded tho house that it
would not be reasonable to expect in
such a country as Canada that ther>
should be frequent reductions of
the public debt. There had been
but six sinee confederation, and of
these the present administration
claimed four.
