ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
Vote for Mayor Hammar, a Progressive Policy
and a Reduction of City" Taxes.
That Seemed to Be the idea
Uppermost at Tuesday's
Public Meeting.
Mfi Gaw Ignored'the Financial Question in His
Brief Sp*<fch.
•sfki
Notwithstanding'the short notice
given Mayor Hammar's meeting last
night, the Grand Forks opera house
was packed to the doors. H. S. Cayley occupied the chair, and in opening the meeting stated- the financial
question was the paramount issue in
the civic election, and advised the
citizens to vote Ibr the" candidates
whom they think best qualified to
manage the corporation's money attain in a businesslike manner.
Mayor Hammar was the first
speaker, and he was given* hearty
ovation as he appeared on the platform. After having invited the
members ofthe Business Men's committee to seats on the stage, Mr.
Hammar stated that the first plank
of his platform would be the reduction of public expenses. If one clerk
is sufficient to perform the work
properly in the city office, only one
should be employed ; he thought
the city should take over the electrical supplies and pay the electrician a straight salary ; a reduction
should be made in the police depart-;
ment, if it could be done without impairing the efficiency of tbe service;
if no salaries were paid the aldermen, the mayor should serve free.
He, favored tree wtter for lawn
sprinkling purposes ; also the establishment of a city market, and the
grading of the street from First
street to the Granby smelter, on this
side of the river. The city had arrived at a stage when it would soon
eitl.er have to improve the old plant
formerly supplying the city with
power, or dispose of it and build or
lease a new plant, or else continue
buying their power from the Granby
or Cascade company. If the property owners of Grand Forks would
pay up their taxes now in arrears,
the financial condition would be
good. During the past year the ad-
ministrrtioii had taken up 17,000
of debentures—$5,000 prior to the
issuance of the financial statement
•and 12,000 after. The speaker compared the receipts and expenditures
during the term of the present council with that of the previous year,
and demonstrated that the city's finances had never been as well managed as during the year just ended.
He favored bi-weekly meetings of
tbe council, instead of weekly, and
thought this change would possibly
make the aldermen more willing to
serve free. If there had ever been a
legal salary by-law passed, it was the
ono of 1904, as it had been passed
six months ago. He had spent more
in connection with the mayor's office
during the past year than he had received as salary. He did not think
it wise to cut down the hotel and
liquor lieenscs, and thus curtail the
city's revenues, but would let them
Bun until they dropped out of their
own volition. If the merchants were
willing to employ a merchants' pol
ice (and he would pay his share Of
the cost), he thought the police force
could be materially reduced. During the past police protection hud
been efficient and sufficient.
Mr. Gaw was the next speaker.
His speech was very brief, only occupying two or three minutes. He
was not in favor of a wide-open town,
and if elected he would close it up
immediately. He had nothing to
say on the financial situation.
Charles Brown, candidate for al
derman in the East ward, was next
called on. He had conducted his
own business during the past four
years very successfully, and thought
he was qualified to help handle the
city's affaire for one year.
A. L. Clements, aldermanic candidate in the Centre ward, also spoke
briefly. He did not believe in anybody working' for a corporation or
individual without pay, but if the
council decided in favor of no salaries, he was perfectly willing to donate his services. He favored retrenchment, and thought the office
staff should be cut down, it it could
be done without impairing the efficiency of work. During the past
year $16,000 or $19,000 had been set
aside for the sinking fund.
William McNee, candidate for alderman in the East ward, arose and
stated he withdrew in Mr. Brown's
favor, thus electing that gentleman
and Mr. Hutton aldermen for that
ward by acclamation..
The chairman then called on the
audience for questions, but everyone
appeared to be perfectly satisfied
with the clear statements of the pre
sent administration's policy, and
none were propounded.
Mayor Hammar, in replying to
Mr. Gaw, said that if the latter called
this a wide-open town, he was greatly mistaken. If Mr. Gaw had traveled as much as the speaker, he
would know what a wide-open town
meant. If Mr. Gaw was sincere in
his advocacy of a closed town and a
reduction of saloon licenses, why
hod he, as police commissioner, introduced a resolution to grant a new
saloon license? Lost year every
dollar collected by the police department had been accocnted for. Mr.
Gaw had served two terms iii the
city council, and as a financier had
proven a failure. The financial
statement showed up better this year
than it bad ever done before. Mr.
Spier, as bank manager, would bear
him out in this assertion.

The Grand Forks Hockey club
played its first game of the season at
Rossland on Monday night, and this
is the way The Miner, of that city,
sizes up the contest:
"The Grand Forks-Rossland hockey match was brought off at the rink
lust night in the presence of a large
crowd of spectators, and resulted in
a victory for the home team, the
score being 12-2 in favor of Rossland.
|*The Grand Forks men were under a
number of unavoidable disadvantages right from the start. It was the
first time that the team had been
brought together in a .game combination, and their play was in no wise
indicated by the number of goals
piled up against them by Rossland,
as many brilliant plays were made by
Grant at point, Ross at centre, Moe
ae rover, and by McCallum and McMillan on the wings. All had heen
used to tn open-air rink, and were a
good deal handicapped on account
of the light, particularly Wilson in
goal. The milder climate and thc
less frequent ice at the Forks also
prevented the practice necessary for
competition against a team so fortu
nately situated in this respect as
Rossland. For the home combination it would be difficult to particularize, when all contributed so well
to the result achieved. Griersonand
Howarth on the wings were always
there with the goods, and materially
assisted rover Wilson in accomplishing thc accurate shooting for which
he was frequently applauded- E. G.
Conroy was referee, and the umpires
were A. J. Wyant ond Al. Davis,
with Winters and Craddock as time
keepers. The line-up was as follows:
Grand Forks—Wilson, goal; Grant,
point; Manly, cover; Moe, rover;
Ross, centre; McCallum and McMillan, wings. Rossland—McCreary,
goal; Donohoe, point; Jamieson,
cover; Wilson, rover; Hood, center;
Grierson and Howarth, wings."
The Grand Forks players have
nothing but words of praise for the
Rossland hunch, both as opponents
and entertainers, aud unhesitatingly
declare that they inade things as interesting "for the visitors after the
game as they did'daring it, and that
12 to 3 score wifl indicate what that
implies, The Rossland team will
probably play a return game here in
about two weeks, when local enthusiasts can see what a finished brand
of hockey is put up in the West.
The management of the Grand
Forks skating rink have changed the
date of their masquerade carnival to

may be learned from small bills soon

Kossland's attractive and popular

and, judging from the systematic,
impartial and successful manner in
which he has handled the city's
business for the pnst year, as well as
his firm's local mercantile business
during thc past six years, the people
of Grand Forks honor not only themselves, hut also safeguard the public
interests, by choosing for their chief
magistrate for 1905 the present incumbent, Mayor Hammar.
The 1904 council reduced Grand
Forks' debt by 89,000 during the
year, by taking up debentures to
that amount. This is something no
council under any other mayor seems
to have considered worth doing, and
the pnblic debt consequently kept
increasing. . Elect a mayor who uses
practical modern business methods
in his civic duties, and conducts ils
affairs like any commercial or private establishment, along lines
which tend to show a goodly addition to the bank account at the eud
of the year.
It may be well to remember, that
*nnny of the most outspoken opponents of Mayor Hammar were members of former councils of whose system of conducting city affaire Auditor Hodge finds occasion to say,
iu speaking of monies received for
local improvements and the loose
way of bookkeeping those accounts,
''What has happened in previous
years I am unable to say, as that
does not come under my jurisdiction."

JEFFREY HAMMAR.
'v0n Thursday  of this week the
voters ot Grand Forks will' choose
their chief magistrate for the coming
year;   and having in view the two
candidates offering themselves  for
that office, the question has resolved
itself into one whether, on the one
hand, the electors desire as mayor
a   consistently  practical    business
man who has applied those qualities
to that office during the past  term
and is prepared to equal that record
again,   or,   on  the other hand, an
avowed theorist who haB not in thc
past   practiced   as   he    preached.
Mayor Hammar has ever stood by
his convictions, and there is never
any  doubt in  the minds of either
friends or foes whire he stands upon
any public question.    Ex-Alderman
Gaw   prefers to run with the hares
and hunt with the hounds, and is a
lightning change artist in the mutter
of policy, and what he favors today
he may   decry tomorrow,   as evidenced hy his stand upon the salsry
question.   He comes out—now—as
thc candidate of thc so-called reform
party, one of whose planks, it is asserted, is to more stringently   supervise saloon, gambling and other like
institutions.   Still we (ind Mr. Gaw
promising, if  elected, to lower the
saloon licenses in Grand Forks!   Is
that the sort of reform this city desires?   Is that thc sort of mayor this
city wants? During the coining year
there will be many important questions up before the council board,
including a new arrangement as to
the electric light supply for the city,
as thc contract with the Granby company expires during this year.   The
proposed railway up the North Fork
will   also doubtless call for transactions between the city and railway
company as regards location of terminal point,  station buildings, etc.
If  the  city   desires  to derive thc
greatest benefits from these arrangements,  ns well  as any other quis-
tkms which may naturally arise, the
taxpayers should place a man at the
head   of   thc council board who is
capable of handling such matters;
A year ngo Grand Forks was wilh
out a restaurant;. now she has
four, and all doing a thriving business. On Thursday the citizens will
be called on to deride whether tljey
desire the present prosperous times
to continue or not. A vote .fi>r the
present business administration,, is
a vote for progress and good times;
a vote for the theorists, indicates a
desire to return to the business stagnation of former years.

business iu the city councils.
If Mr, Gaw were elected, he would
make Grand Forks a one-store-of-each-

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just ns well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in!
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-,
famed "Scenic Line ofthe World," j
the only transcontinental line pass- J
ing through Salt Lake City, Glen-;
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado |
Springs nnd Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is tho best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining cur service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive menus of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Advising 'm Doctor.
Dr. Blank—maybe I'd better call him
Dr. Proteld, since to advertise his reul
name might be to do violence to the
ethics of the medical profession—well,
then, Dr. Proteld Is himself a sufferer
from rheumatism, which for a long
time has resisted all his skill. The
other da; a big Irishman'<came hobbling* up his steps end was admitted
bj* an attendant, who ushered him into
the office and called the doctor from
another part of the house. Presently
the doctor came limping In just as the
caller bad done.
"Well, my man," said he, "what is
the matter with you?"
"Begorrn, sor," the Irishman answered, "I'd first like to know phwat's the
matter wld you."
"I have rheumatism," the physician
admitted.
"Well, then," said the visitor, rising
from his chair with many a grunt and
groan and laboring painfully toward
the door, "tbey's two av us that ought
to go to some doether who has sinse
enough  to  cure  the  both  av  us."
Animal Swimmers.
The elephant Is a good swimmer, and
the wild animals of the cut family, tbe
tiger, the panther, the jaguar and others, do not hesitate to cross lakes and
rivers. On the other hand, the domestic cat shrinks from immersion and
drowns quickly. The nostrils of .some
■mall animals are so placed as to render breathing very difficult when they
are In the water. Among these are
mice and rabbits, which will drown
Without sinking beneath tbe surface.
Rats are excellent swimmers.
Almost ull birds except those which
are distinctly natatorial are nearly
helpless In wnjer. Small birds In particular huve no power of propulsion,
and, though they do not sink, they
drown quickly. Even many species of
waterfowl rise from tbe water with
difficulty or not at ull when their
wings are wet. After a sen gull plunges
and returns to the surface it stretches
Its wings so that they may be dried by
the wind and sun before it attempts to
fly.—Success.
Tho Patient Brala.
The brain Is one of the most patient
and Industrious organs of the body, it
can be Induced by good treatment to
perform prodigies of labor. Few realise its capabilities and endurance. But
It la sensitive. It will uot long brook
abuse. It briskly responds to the whip
at first, but if tkt lasb Is laid on too
bard and sftea It balks. It Insists upon
having plenty *t good, red blood when
It works hard, and good, red blood Is
made from wheat and roast beef, not
from pi* a la mode, lobster salad and
cocaine or whisky. Tbe most essential
thing for the man wbo works with his
brain Is plenty of sleep. Only la sleep
does the brnln find tbe rest and re-
fre-im .'lit that are necessary to main-
till . Ils vigor and Integrity.
M.ak.r. aa* Water,
Monkeys never wash or bathe,
thou, a tbey have, aa a rule, every
chance to do so. Possibly experience
has taught tbem to be afraid of crocodiles, which are pretty generally distributed on monkey haunted rivers. It
Is snlil that a number of Indian monkeys watched a party of Europeans In
a boat wbo washed their hands uud
brushed their teeth. Next day the
monkeys were seen to come to the
riverside and go through the form of
washing their hands and of brushing
their teeth with bits of stlck.-Nnture.
