Fourth Year-No. 81
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, August 8, 1905
Issued Twice a Week
Contract With Granby Co. for
Power Expiries on 1st
Prox.
Committee Appointed to Draft
a New Liquor License
By-Law
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chamber last night, the
mayor and all tbe aldermen being
present. '
A commuuication from Street
Commissioner Cannon recommended that tbe First street bridge be
closed to public traffic, and tbat the
Bridge street and Van Ness addition bridges be repaired. A large
number sidewalks should either be
rebuilt or repaired, and some of the
street grades needed leveling. The
mayor thought that old sidewalks,
practically useless, Should be replaced by new ones instead of being repaired, even if the number had
to be reduced. He also favored the
employment of a regular crew", instead of one or two men, when new
sidewalks are constructed.
Tbe city stated that he had fully
gone into the matter of closing the
First street with the commissioner
of lands and works while at the
coast. The Commissioner bad taken
no definite action in the matter, but
had promised to do so in a few days.
In the opinion of the solicitor, it
would be better if the bridge was
closed by the government than by
the council. Final action in this
matter was postponed until the commissioner arrived at a.decision.
The mayor reported that Surveyor
Kerby would have a profile of the
Winnipeg avenue grade" completed
by the next meeting of the council.
On motion of Aid. Brown and
Crossen, the board of works was instructed to call for tenders for the
construction of an eigrit-foot sidewalk on Bridge street, from Second
street to Fourth; also a new walk
from the city hall to Bridge street.
It wa/also decided to have the Winnipeg avenue sidewalk repaired, and
to have the ruts in the streets filled
in,       '
Aid. McCallum asked permission
to burn tbe debris from the recent
fire in Columbia, and to use the
hose from the fire department to
keeg, the Hames from spreading.
Granted.

Aid. McCallum reported that nothing further bad been done in regard
to securing additional land from the
townsite company for the cemetery.
The mayor thought the grounds
should be surveyed and platted, and
that permits should hereafter be ob
tamed from the city to bury the
dead. On motion of Aid. Brown, the
committee was authorized to have
the grounds re-surveyed and platted.
Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that three transformers had burned
out during the past week, leaving
only one in stock. He recommended the purchase of four new ones,
which was concurred in. He also
stated that ladders for the* fire department bad been ordered from
Spokane, and they would arrive in
the eity in a.few days.    •
City Engineer Reid, through Aid.
Clements, asked for a week's leave
of absence, offering to furnish a substitute.    Granted.
Aid. Clements stated that the
new pump had been set up and
would soon be in working order.
He said that while the new shaft was
being installed at the Granby power
house last Sunday, Messrs. Savage
and Reid had gone around requesting the citizens to cease lawn sprinkling. The people had complied
'with the request by using the usual
amount of water.
The mayor said it was a pity the
people did riot realize the importance of having water in the tank
for fire protection.
Aid. Clements reported that the
wooden pipe for water mains on
Victoria avenue had arrived in the
city, and on motion of Aid. Henniger the council decided to have the
same laid by day work.
Aid. Clements drew the attention
of the council to the fact that the
city's contract witM the Granby company for power expired on the 1st
of September.
The mayor said he had interviewed
Mr. Campbell, of the West Kootenay Power company, with the object of getting figures for,power from
him. The company would not be
able to deliver power in this cuy before the 1st of February. Mr. Campbell had promised to submit figures
in a few days. In reference to the
project of the city damming Hardy
lake and obtaining its power and
water supply from that source, tbe
mayor did not think the volume of
water in that lake was sufficient
The city had always complied with
ev.ejj; j;equest made by the Granby
people,, and he didn't think tbe
company could conscientiously refuse an extension of tbe contract.
On motion of Aid. McCullum, the
water and light committee and the
mayor were appointed a committee'
to interview tbe Granby company
regarding an extension of the present contract
Aid. Clements drew the council's
attention to the fact that a number
of people were sprinkling their lawns
without a nozzle. The mayor said
people were worse this year than
they had been during sbe previous
two years in regard to wasting water.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Brown, the water and light committee was empowered to shut off the
water on'the'premises of people using garden hose without nozzles.
Aid. McCallum suggested that the
health officer be instructed to analyze, periodically, milk offered for
sale in the city, in order that the
people may know what they are getting. Thc mayor thought the city
should • furnish the health officer
with the necessary instruments. On
motion, the suggestion was ordered

the City
A. P. Claney, a prominent lumber
merchant of Chicago, together with his
brother, H. P. Claney have just finished an inspection of the Betts ifc Hesperus mie in which, with other prominent Chicago men, they are heavily
interested. The Betts and Hesperus
properties are located about two miles
from this city, and have a large showing of low grade copper ore. The
company operating it, of which A. B.
Claney is a director, have been prosecuting development work upon the
property for upwards of a year with
gratifying results. A compressor
plant was installed last full by the
manager T. H. Rea, and the long tunnel is in about 600 feet. The property is located close to the Phoenix extension of the Great Northern railway
so that shipping facilities are close at
hand. Messrs. Claney, who stopped
of here on a visit to the Portland fair,
were much gratified, at, the progress of
she work and at the size of the ore
bodies being developed. Manager
Rea accompanied them to .Phoenix
where they were taken through the
Granby mines and afterwards through
the Granby smelter, thus being able
to see for themselves what could be
done with the Boundary's low grade
ores, The extent of the mining operations carried on in the camp and the
fullness of the smelting works was a
complete revelation to the Chicago
men, who are showing their faith in
the Boundary by making heavy investments.
Superintendent Morrow of the advertising department of the Great
Northern railway, and party of
officials who have been in the city for
the purpose of looking over the situation with an idea of attracting tourist travel and providing for incoming
settlers came here last Saturday in a
private C, B. & Q cir, and left for
Spokane, Sunday morning. Saturday
evening the party visited the Granby
smelter, and were shown through the
big reduction works by Supt. Hodges.
They expressed Surprise at the magnitude of the plant and its equipment
with labor saving machinery. On
Sunday morning a few of the members of the party visited Covert's big
fruit ranch, and were duly impressed
with the possibilities of fruit raising
in the valley.
Chas. Dahnken, who has been L.
A. Manly's bookkeeper since the early
days of the city, has resigned his position, and will leave tomorrow with

Passing of Judge Leamy.
Judge Andrew Leamy passed peacefully away at his residence in this city
at 7:30 o'clock last Friday evening,
after a lingering illness. A relapse

appreciably nearer, and the Judge did
not recover consiousness from that
time. Mrs. Leamy and her two sons

Heroic Endeavor Made by the
Former to  Save Her
Companion
Cascade rower company, left Cascade
yesterday morning for a day's
outing at English Point. After luncheon Mr. Willey and Mrs. Wolverton
went a short distance up McRae
creek on a trout fishing expedition.
During their absence Miss Anderson
and Miss Ruckle decided to go in
bathing. Miss Anderson, who was
unable to swim, ventured out beyond
her depth, and Miss Ruckle endeavored to rescue her. In this attempt
she got a long polo and tried to reach
her companion with it. Finding it too
shtirt, she swam to her assistance;
On reaching her, Miss Anderson threw
her arms around her would-be rescuer,
and they both sank. This is the brief
story of the drowning, as told by
Marjorie Wolverton, au eye-witness
of the accident.
Miss Ruckle's parents live Beaver
Point, Salt Spring Island, B. C. She
was 24 years of age, and was highly
accomplished. She taught sehool in
Cascade four years ago, and at the
time of her death was visiting at the
home of Mrs. O.K. Stacker. The last

attained considerable success. She
was a cousin of the Ruckle brothers of

is a rancher at Beaver Point.
Miss Anderson was a native of
Minnesota, her parents living in a
little town near .Minneapolis. She
was of an ambitious nature, and had
worked their way through one course

down to the scene of the accident lust
night Ur. Kingston decided that an
inquest would be unnecessary.
This morning undertaker Cooper
went down to Cascade to prepare the
bodies for shipment to their respective
homes.
The sad accident has thrown a shade
of sorrow over the town of Cascade,
as both young Indies were populur and
highly accomplished It is said thut
some of the wealthiest people on the
coast treasure very highly some of
Miss Ruckle's landscape gems.

O'ten causes a good deal of trouble.
The best cure is a prompt application
of Nerviline, which instantly stops the
pain, prevents swelling, removes all
blackness and discoloration. Nerviline
is antiseptic—prevents blood poisoning. No liniment so strong, so penetrating, so swift to destroy pain. You
miss a lot of comfort by not using
Poison's Nerviline. For nearly fifty
yearrit has been the standard afmily
liniment of Canada.

A man who was too ecohomical to
subscribe for his home paper senl his
little hoy to Uhtow the copytuKen by
his neighbor. In his haste, the hoy
run over a four dollar stand of bees,
and ill ten minutes looked like <i warty
summer sijiiitsh. His eis rtarhed
his father, who ran to his assistance,
and failing to notiee a barbed wiie
fence, ran into it, breaking it ilnwr,
cutting a handful of flesh from his an-
atononiy and ruining a live dollar pair
of pants. Thecow. took advantage of
tiie gap in the fence and got into tl.e
cornfield and killed herself eating
corn. Bearing the disturbance, the
wife ran anil upset a four gallon Churn
of rich cream into n basket of kitten*-,
drowning the whole litter. In her
hurry she dropped a twenty dollar set
of false teeth. The baby, left alone,
crawled through the cream into the
parlor, spoiling a twenty dollar carpet.
During tin* excitement the oldest
daughter eloped with the hired man,
the dog broke up eleven setting hens,
! and the calves got out and chewed the
tiils oil'four fine shirts.
A   baseball   editor   with  religious
| tendencies   originates  the  following:
j "The devil was the lirst eoaeher.    He
| coached    Eve   when   she  stole first.
: Adam stole second.     When Isaac met
Rebecca at the well she was   walking
with a pitcher; .Sampson struck out a
good   many   limes when  he beat the
I'l.illistines.    Moses made the first run
when  he slew the Egyptians.    Cane
made a base hit when  he'slew Abel.'
The prodigal son made a  home   run.
David   was  a long distance thrower,
and .Moses shut out the  Egyptians at
lthe Red  Sea.    The game was called
when the flood came on account of wet

PRINTS all the news of the
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the
only twice-a-week paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
orontrolled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a combination of merchants
to lie uMtlusu means ol lauding their own wares, to the
detriment of their rivals.
The Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. He does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
different parties obout what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads The Si:n twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, itud is rapidly inereas-
ine. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the
Boundary.

You consider
that a poorly
printed job coats
just as much as
one that presents a neat and

think that your

Good Printing—the kind wft do—is in itself

you that our stock and workhianship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
