Fifth Year-No. 10
Grand Forks, B. C, Frlsday, December 1, 1905
Issued Twice
INCONSISTENCY
To the Editor of The Sun.
Deau Sir-:—I would like to ask a
small space in your paper to call
attention to a somewhat novel criticism in the last issue of the Grand
Forks Gazette on the aotioH of the
council in the matter of the aldermen's remuneration by-law, which
pays special attention to my attitude
in the matter. In reading between
the lines, it will readily be seen that
it is not that true and impartial
criticism that the editor, in hiB
Pharisaic self-righteousness, is wont
to preach to the public, but one of a
number of criticisms that I can only
acaeunt for as an attempt': to get back
at me for the manner in which I
used my vote and influence in the
last Dominion election. These futile attempts, evidently intended to
puzzle me, have been coming frequently since the last Dominion
election, but never before tbat event,
and nre now coming about at often
as shelved editorials an rehashed
into service to fill the column! of the
Gazette. I am free to say that I
used my vote and influence (or the
Liberal candidate then, aa on all
other occasions where the opportunity presents itself, and I am
proud of it.   My reasons for doing
'so are, that the principles adopted
by the Liberal candidate meet my
approval; that I consider the Libera!
candidate the abler and better qualified for the position, and that I
claimed the right to vote as I pleased.
When I opposed the salary by
law two years ago, although the
majority of the council were in favor
of salaries, the aldermen's salary
by-law was defeated, but the mayor
got his salary just the same, notwith
standing all my arguments against
it. Ilhen stated that if the flnaii
cial condition of the city improved
it wotila be right that members of
the: council should receive fair remuneration for their services, but
that the mayor should not get a
salary unless the aldermen did.
During the argument I treated every
member of the council with respect,
and called no man a grafter, or any
such epithet as Mr. Burrell would
. have you infer. One of my principal objections to the by-law WaB, thc
unfairness of it singling out the
mayor and two aldermen for salary,
and intimating to the rest of the
council that their attendance at
meetings didn't count for anything.
I certainly would oppose such a bylaw right now on general principles,
even if I were one ofthe lucky three;
and I am very sure the present
mayor would, for he has repeatedly
made tho commendable statement
that he would not accept a salary
unless the aldermen got one also.
One of the principal arguments used
by Mr. Burrell in favor of salaries,
was the incidental expense of entertaining. This is excellent theory,
but the council of Mr. Burrell's term
know very well that it does not always work out in practice, as such
bills_ were sent to tho council for
payment, although Mr. Burrell alone
got a salary. Last year, with the
improved conditions, I did not op*
poee a small salary, for the reason
given at a public meeting just before the election of the present council. This year I take the same position, except that before election I
emphasized my position in the mat
ter, by stating in a public meeting
that if a*by-law came up again this
year for a reasonable amount of
salary I might be found voting for
it. While I cannot consistently
oppose a fair salary by-law after declaring my position, yet I have always been prepared to support any
resolution to reduce the amount ol
salary, as I intimated at thc last
council meeting, so long as it doesn't,
drop to a point to induce graft,
which I will not tolerate. So there
has been no change in my position
for over a year at least. Has Mr.
Burrell, then, just woke up to a realization of the fact that I changed
my viewB in the -natter over a year
ago, and accordingly my position is
inconsistent? or why didn't he criticize my stand in the matter at the
time that I changed my position if
he thought it was a wrong move,
and thought the public might suffer by such a change, instead of allowing it to stand over more than a
year? The only available explanation is, that there was no Dominion
election just prior to the passing of
last year's salary by-law.
There are but few ratepayers in
the city that-pay more taxes than I
do. Accordingly, it is to my interest
personally to keep down the amount
for salaries, as well as all other expenses.
The law requires that in order to
qualify for a seat in the council a
man must be the registered owner ol
city property of a certain assessed
valuation. The importance of this
statute requires no explanation.
Any one will readily see thc absurdity and injustice of a man he:ng entrusted with the ratepayers' business
who iu not himself interested in the
business to the extent required by
law. Therefore it is safe to presume
thnt the law is a good one, and that
the evasion of it by any strategy is a
fraud on the public. I have the
property qualification required by
law for a seat in the council, and I
pay my taxes promptly. It haB been
currently reported that when Mr.
Burrell went into the council three
years ago he was not the owner of
the properly on which he qualified,
but that he hud borrowed the prop-
perty for the purpose of representing to the people that he could
qualify; and indeed the circumstances that followed tend to confirm the truth of the report. Prior
to Mr. Burrell's election, apparently
by some manipulation of the city
hooks, the assessed valuation of- the
property in question was raised from
$800 to $1000, the amount required
by law to qualify for mayor. During that year the taxes were not paid
on the properly in question. In
other words, thc mayor wjio accepted his salary like a man didn't pay
one dollar of taxes, and he hasn't
paid any taxes oh it since. After
Mr. Burrell's term was finished the
former owner again beeame the reputed owner of the property, and
again thc assessed valuation was reduced. The assessor, on being asked
why he reduced the valuation, said Mr.
Burrell had requested him to reduce it
to the same as the adjoining lots, as it
had been previously, for it again belonged to its former owner.
It is to be hoped, that Mr. Burrell
can find some legitimate explanation
for this combination of cloudy circumstances, for I consider it just as fraudulent for a man to qualify for a seat
in the council by misrepresenting
himself   as   the   owner of somebody
else's property as it is to steal his way
into the council without any property
at all, in direct violation of the law.
If the reports of Mr. Hun-ell's qualification for mayor during his term be
correct, as the circumstances would indicate, it iB difficult to understand how
Mr. Burrell could muster gall to
charge any one with being ineonsist.
er.t. I have the most profound sympathy for any man.who is in strained
circumstances or hasn't whatever
property is required to meet all emergencies, but I have no sympathy for
the man who will stoop to an evasion
of the laws of his country for the purpose of winning fame or salary.
I am always pleased to invite fair,
konest criticism of public affairs, but
a criticism calculated to wreak revenge is not only cowardly but a menace to society. Yours respectfully,
Neil McCai.lcm.

I'lUDAY. .DECEMBER 1, 1905
The price of copper continues lo
eliinh upward. Lake is now selling
nt 17 cents and electrolytic at 16|
cents per pound for delivery in
January and February. Consumers
are finding it difficult to discover
any copper tor sale for delivery at
an earlier date than January, and
report sayB that sales have been
made at i% and 17i cents for immediate deHvcry. Tliere is a marked
scarcity of spot copper, and some
consumers have not taken care of
their full requirement"! up lo the end
of the year. It is not improbable,
therefore, that very high prices may
In* paid for cash copper between
now and the beginning of the now
your. Consumers are becuining
alarmed over the situation and are
disposed to buy more freely for advance Minium. There is now every
proepect that- approximately the
present level of prices will be maintained during the lirst half of 1908,
and perluipB much longer.

Buckley had taken out life insurance
with Mr. Neil McCallum a short time

he had only paid one premium, the
promptness with which the policy was
paid is commendable:
