An adjourned meeting of the city
council was held Wednesday evening for the purpose of allowing Aid.

rights through tbe city, and for the
transaction of general busintu.
Present—Mayor Huttog,. AJd. Clements, Cooper; Ga#, Lec$RS>e, McDonald and Spraggett. «•»!•***
City Solicitor Miller "(Med the
railway people desired an agreement
between the city and "co"np|ny executed before a by-law was passed.
He had drawn up an agreement,
and if it was adopted tonight it could
be signed by the proper city officials
tomorrow and forwarded to Toronto
for the signatures of the officers of
the railway company.
The following are the main, points
in the agreement:

thence following Third street, crossing
tie allejwty between Main street and

same us the street grado from Main

longer than five minutes at any ono
time; the rails of the track not to be
higher than the street grade; trains

higher speed than five miles an hour,
uml bells of engines to be constantly
rung; if fifty miles are not completed
within two years, the company to give
running rights to any other road that
may desire same.
Aid. Spraggett thought the penalties for the violation by the company of any of the above provisions
should be specified. The city solicitor explained that it was a very
difficult matter to add a penalty
clause to an agreement, and that it
could be inserted in the by-law
with less trouble. After a great deal
of discussion this course was adopted. The agreement, Mr. Miller said,
would be incorporated in the bylaw
word for word.
On motion of Aid. Gaw and McDonald, the mayor and city clerk
were authorized to execute the agreement with the Kettle Valley line
and to affix the corporation seal
thereto.
In answer to a question, Mr. Warrington, chief engineer of the Kettle
Valley line, stated that he was not
prepared to give a definite date when
actual construction wuld be starlet',
as unforeseen delays, euch as trouble about letting contracts, high
wuter, etc., might occur.
-Aid. Lequime gave notice that at
the next meeting of the council he
would introduce a bylaw giving the'j
Kettle Valley line running rights
through the city.
Aid. Cooper, chairman of the spec-
cial committee appointed at the last
meeting to confer witb J. C. and A.
J. MacDonald regarding the establishment of a steel works in this
city, reported that they had agreed
on a smaller casb subsidy and a little more power than mentioned at
the previous meeting. They had
agreed to furnish the|new enterprise
with electric power, not to exceed 10
horsepower, during the life of the
city's contract with the Granby company, and to pay a cash bonus of
$600 on the completion of the plant.
The company was to pay water and
light rates the same as any other
ratepayer. He hoped that the council could see its way clear to grant
the assistance asked for.
Aid. Lequime explained that
when, at the last meeting, he favored giving the company more power
than they asked for, he had not {intended to include a cash bonds. He
was not in favor of giving a cash
subsidy, especially as the company
had fully decided to locate here before making the request. He would
vote for free power, however, pro
vided the company erected good
buildings and guaranteed to employ
a certain number of men.
J. C. MacDonald replied that the
city couldn't get that kind nf n contract from any concern, not even, the
Granby company. He intended to
employ the number of men he had
work for. He would start with
about ten men.
Aid. Gaw took tho same view as
Aid. Cooper. The council, he suid,
would bo very short-sighted if, lor
the sake of a few hundred dollars, it
did not endeayor to get new enterprises established here. The proposed steel plant was a concern that
would be a credit to the city.
Aid. Clelnents wished to know
why they altered their decision of
locating across the liver. He was in
favor of encouraging new industries.
J. C. MacDonald replied that the
mayor and some of the aldermen
had induced them to locate in thc
city.   **
The mayor would not have been
iu fayor of much of a bonus if they
had located in the Ruckle addition.
Aid. Spraggett concurred in the
mayor's views. He believed in fostering industries inside the city
limits.
Aid. Lequime could not see how
the city was to get the money back
it paid out in bonusing the company,
especially as there was no guarantee
that it would remain in business for
six months.
Mr. Whiteside replied that the fact
that, the firm intended to invest
87000 in a plant was a snlficient
guarantee that it would be a permanent institution.
Aid. McDonald was of the opinion that the city would have to encourage industries if we Were to
build a city here. He supported
the recommendation of the committee. .
In answer to a question, A. J.
McDonald stated that the building
would cosi, from $1800 to 82000,
aud the site about $1200. The power
would not be used at night when
needed for lighting the city.
On motion of Aid. Spraggett, the
report of the cpmtnittee was received
and udopted, Aid. Lequime alone
voting in the negative.
Aid. Cooper gave notice that at
the next mooting he would bring in
a by-law granting a bonus to J. C.
and A. J. MucDouala for the estab-
ment of a steel plant in this city.
The city solicitor stated that before such a by-law could be introduced a petition from the ratepayers
would be required. Mr. Cooper
thought he could get the necessary
signatures before tbe next meeting.
Aid. Coope*1 complained of the Yale
hotel and P. Burns & Co. having
damaged the sidewalks in front of
their ice house by backing up heavily
loaded Wagons on them. On motion,
a resolution was passed to the effect
that all persons damaging sidewalks
be instructed to repair the same.
Mr. Cooper also registered a kick
against the sidewalks being used as an
auto highway.
Chas. Brown mode a request for
city water at the Boundary Iron
Works. The company had about
$25,000 iu the plant, and as the city
derived considerable benefit* from it,
it was entitled to some consideration.
Aid. Cooper said it was a question
whether the eity had a right to extend the waterworks system outside
the cfty limits or not., jj If it had, lie
had no objections | in supplying the
Boundary Iron Wot'lSf-with wati-4'.
Tho city solicitor *jH*-.'ei- ■'■'tit at the
time the Kettle Valley line Vrjifi furnished water the city* had no riglit to
extend the* system outside the corporation limits. At tbjj. time the law
had been circumvented by the railway
company laying l^awn inaiii and allowing it to tap tho city main inside
the eity limits. Since that time,
however, the Municipal Clauses Act
hud been amended so that corporations could extend their water and
light systems outside city limits.
Aid. Spraggett said only , the ratepayers of the city were entitled to all
the assets of tho city. The people of
the Ruckle addition hail been asked
to come into the city, and had refused.
Aid. Clements was in sympathy
with Aid. Spraggett's remarks;
but the Boundary Iron Works anil
Lequime's mill were of great benefit
to the city, and a point should be
strained in their favor.
Aid, Gaw saitl In- understood the
Kettle Valley lints wanted todi-puso of
its water main. The council could
not do much ill it wis secured. Then
he favored giving these parties all the
water they wanted.
Aid. McDonald said Mr. Brown
should make some proposition.
Mr. Brown suid the council should
investigate the matter, and then state
what it waa prepared to do. At tho
last meeting, Mr. Brown added,
there had been some sarcastic remarks
made about another institution across
the river having received a bonus. He
wanted it distinctly understood that
the Boundary Iron Works had never
received one cent as a subsidy.
The matter was referred to the
water and light committee.
After the council adjourned the
various committees met and elected
their chairmen. The following is the
result: Finance, Cooper; water and
light, Clemehts; board of works, McDonald; health and 'relief, Spraggett;
cemetery, Lequime.

the cliauge.
Hon.   William     Templeman
Elected by a Majority
of 686
A Boston dispatch of the 7th inst.
says that New Yorkers have been
heavy buyers during the past few '
days of Granby stoek in both markets, advancing the price to $11.50,
its high record price.
Accompanying the advance is a
report that Granby will go upon a 12
per cent dividend basis, dividends
payable quarterly. The Granby paid
a 3 per cent dividend in December,
but there was no designation as to
whether it was quarterly, or semiannual.
It was generally accepted as a 6
per cent rate.
It is understood that tbe company's copper now costs 9 cents per
pound, which would indicate net
earnings of about $175,000 mqnthly -
on an 18 cent market. On this basis
it is showing net earnings of 15 per
cent on its $1,350,000 shares", Par
value of shares is $10.      ^Hl
Conservative   Candidate   Is

A Boston, dispatch says: Encour-
couraged by the success of the Gran by,
both the British Columbia and the
Dominion Copper companies are preparing to extend their organizations in
the Boundary district. The British
Columbia company has ordered a
smelter and converter equipment to
handle 2000 tons daily, while the Dominion is preparing to build a smelter
of 2500 to 3000 tons daily capacity.
Prominent eastern financial interests
have now become identified with these
properties. Among the heavy stockholders are Colgate Hoyt, Edwin
Hawley, E. Underwood and Col. John
Weir in the British Columbia, and
Samnel Untermeyer, Samuel .New-
house, and Senator Warner Miller in
the Dominion. The success of the
Granby in profitably treating lean
ores is responsible for the enlargement
of the scope of the other two companies.

A government that is calloused
enough to donate 800,000 acres o
the people's lands to a big corporation that has not earned them, h *s
forfeited the confidence of the electors.
Mr.-Fraser's vote against the eight
hour day for smelter employees
should he tallied as another nail in
his political coffin.
It is reported that the question of
the Midway k Vernon subsitly has
been submitted to Judge Huntor, who
will decide as to whether the government is justified in paying the money
under present circumstances. In the
event of an aflirmative decision being
given, the government will pay over
the subsidy as each ten miles is completed.  /
A. Wilson, "craneohaser".at the
Granby smelter, had one of his legs
badly crushed last Saturday morning while working with one of the
big slag pots. He was taken-to the
Cottage hospital for medical treatment.
A. A. Frechette, the Midway har-
nessmaker was in the city Wednesday. He will probably open a shop
in this city as soon as construction
work commences on the Kettle Valley line.
The formal opening of the Dominion
parliament at Ottawa on Thursday

A summary of the mineral production of Canada for 1905 has been
issued by the geological survey
branch of the interior department.
The value of the mineral products
for the year is 808,574,707, or two
millions higher thnn Canada's best
year, 1901, when it was over $66,-
000,000. In 1904 the mineral production was $60,073,897, or $8,500,-
000 less than for the past year. Last
year's re turns were all the more remarkable in view of the falling off of
gold from the Yukon amounting to
$2,000,000. Coul occupies a predominating position, making over
$17,000,000, and when is added the
value of the metallic product-, about
80 per cent of the production of the
country is accounted for. The output of Yukon gold was $8,327,200,
and all other gold $6,159,633, making $14,486,833 in nil.

Loose Leaf Systems
■tart* la life.
Bom* of the men of education hare
had to itart as rag sorters. A surprising number have begun wltb dishwashing. Among them I have known
a musician and two seminarists who
have become waiters; a bricklayer who
now owns a hotel and Is worth $100,-
000; a civil engineer who threw aside
the dish rag for a porter's job and, after seven years' hard work and saving,
has Jnst become a partner in a prosperous expressing and shipping business.
A typical ease Is that of a young doctor who came to America to make his
fortune with a hundred spare dollars
In his pocket He tramped about New
Tork for weeks to find work to suit
him. He was starving before a friendly Comasco cook got him a chance to
wash dishes. He lost hts self respect,
he said, and seemed to fall lower and
lower until he resolved to learn English and a trade. He Is now a sktllctl
ladles' tailor and earns $35 a week during th* busy season.
