the neighborhood of her residence,
was referred to the police commissioner*-. C. F. Harrigan also addressed the council on this subject'
The board of works recommended
that steps be taken for the destruction of all obnoxious weedB within
the city limits. As there is a pro'
vincial law covering this subject, the
clerk was instructed to notify the
different railway companies to de
stroy all obnoxious weeds on tbeir
right of way within the city.
The board of work's recommenda
tion that no further work be done on
the alley near P. Burns St Co.'sshoj)
was concurred in by the council.
The board of wonks was instructed to obtain prices from the various
companies and to purchase the nee
essary lumber for its department.

North Fork near the Yale hotel had
heen repaired.
The water and light committee

eommittee appointed to interview^
the cabinet ministers on their recent
visit to the city, reported that the
committee had had a conference
with Hon. H. E. Young in reference
to the construction of an isolation
hospital. Mr. Young had stated
that he thought it would be unwise
to erect a hospital in tbe city. In
the event of an outbreak of a contagious disease tents would answer
tbe purpose better than a building,
as it was customary to burn everything after an epidemic. Some time
in the future the government intend
ed to build an isolation hospital, at
some out of tbe way place, that
could be used by the entire Boundary district. The committee had
also interviewed, the ministers on
educational matters.

Yale-Columbia Lumber company,
for (1200 damages to the First
sireet bridge. Tbe action had been
dismissed with costs, the judge
holding that tbe defendant company
had not shown undue negligence
in protecting the bridge. There had
been a report circulated, he said,
that the city had lost the case because it was unable to establish
its ownership to tbe bridge, but this
was untrue. * On motion, the solicitor and city clerk were instructed to
prepare a statement regarding the
case for the attorney-general, and
also to ascertain the city's legal
rights and responsibilities in the
Fourth street bridge.
The council then adjourned.  .

Will Start With Two Furnaces—Will Employ
300 Men
The official announcement was made
public in Greenwood last Saturday
that the Dominion Copper company
will resume operations at its smelter
at Boundary Falls on June 15th. A
week ago Manager Thomas stated that
all the financial responsibilities of the
company had been fully arranged for;
that there was plenty of money on
hand, and that he had information
that operations would be resumed very
soon. The date set by the latet instructions from New York is the loth
of June. It is also stated that a
party of officials from New York,
probably Vice President Melville and
M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer,
will be iu Greenwood on the 10th of
June. The mine superintendent,
heads of departments, ere, have all
been kept together, So that the company oan blow in and be doing business in a very few days. It is stated
on good authority that the properties
of the company never were in better
shape than they are today, and with
the successful financing of the com
pany due to the splendid efforts of
Vice-President Melville, the Dominion Copper company now has a future
before it such as it never had before
since its organization. The coinpany
will start with two furnaces, with
about 100 men at the smelter and 200
at the mines. In a month's time the
Boundary will be doing  its old  busi-
Death of EberC. Smith
Eber C. Smith, formerly of Spokane, Rossland and Grand Forks,
died of smallpox in Manila, Philippine islands, last month, according
to recent advices received here. lie
was one of the pioneers of Spokane,
having arrived there before the fire.
During the Bossland boom he went
there and engaged in mining and
real estate. He founded the Boss-
land Evening Record, and sold it to
return to Spokane.
During the initial boom of Grand
Forks, Smith came here and Btarlcd
a daily paper. After n short and
checkered journalistic career in this
city he was forced out of business,
and eventually be returned to Spokane, from whence he left for tbe
Philippines. .
Following the American occupation of Manila Mr. Smith went there
and opened a law office. He was one
of the prominent members of the
Manila bar, and contributed a large
share in the work of revising the
Spanish code of laws. He was identified with the important constitutional cases growing out of tbe acquisition of the islands, which were
ultimately decided by the supreme
court of the United States. Mrs.
Smith, who is in Manila, will return
to Spokane.

Death of George Taylor
After a lingering illness of several
months' duration the passing away
of Mr. George Taylor occurred at
6:30 Sunday night, the cause of
death being cancer of the stomach.
Tbe end had been expected for some
time, and be was resigned to go
and died surrounded by his entire
family.
Deceased was a couplo of months
over forty years of age. He was a
native of Chester, England, but emigrated lo this coontry when quite a
young man. He was one of the
pioneers of Grand Forks, having
come here from Bossland in 1897.
For a number of years he has heen
engaged in the contracting business,
and at the time of death had attained success and prominence in
this line. He leaves a widow aqd
three children, the oldest of whom
is ten years of age. He was a loving' husband, kind father and
staunch friend. His many sterling
qualities endeared him to everybody
with whom he came in contact,
while his integrity as a business
man was beyond reproach.
Last summer Mr. Taylor, accompanied by bis wife, visited his old
home in England. It was after his
return to tbe city, last fall, tbat he
first commenced to complain of
stomach troubles. The malady became so aggravated that this spring
he decided to visit the famous Mayo
Brothers' hospital in Rochester,
Minn., for an operation. The incurable nature of his malady was then
learned, but the true facts were kept
from him until towards the last.
Since his return he has been i patient and uncomplaining sufferer,
and many a soldier who has won
undying fame and glory on the battlefield has met the final end with
less heroism than our late friend,
George Taylor.
The funeral was held at 2 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon under the auspices of the Grand Forks Volunteer
Fire Department and the local lodge
of Oddfellows.of which organizations
deceased was an honored member.
Rev. Henry Steele, rector of Holy
Trinity church, conducted an impressive service at the church, paying a high tribute to the many qualities of deeeased in a brief sermon.
The remains were followed to their
last resting place by an immense
procession of citizens, the business
houses having closed from 1:30 to 3
o'clock. At the grave the last sad
rites were carried out by Rev.Henry
Steele and the Oddfellows' lodge.
The floral offerings were both numerous and elaborate. Interment took
place'in the new fraternal cemetery,
adjoining the city burial grounds.

Week
The British Columbia Copper company blew in one furnace at its smelter at Greenwood last Sunday and
on the following day the other two
were also placed in operation. It is
reported that everything started off
without a hitch, and on Tuesday
the furnaces smelted 1800 tons of
ore. This, or a little more, will be
the amount of ore consumed daily.
The converters commenced running
on Tuesday, and shipments of blister
copper will commence next wiek.
At present many extra men are
working around the smelter getting
tracks and mill in order, but the
regular force will be from 180 to 200
men. About 250 men are now working at the Mother Lode mine, and a
force will soon be put on at the Emma. Payday for mines and smelter
will be the 10th of each month.
Decision Against the City
At the Greenwood assizes, last
Friday, Mr. Justice Clement dismissed tbe action with costs in the
cate of the City of Grand Forks
against the Yale-Columbia Lumber
company, being an action for some
.|{1200 damages. The suit was brought
by the city to recover damages, it
being claimed that the sawlogs of
the lumber company had. at various
times created log jams at the First
street bridge, and were responsible
for tbe destruction of the structure.
The decision, which is based on
the ground that the evidence indicates that the lumber coinpany
exercised due diligence in its attempt to protect the bridge, will
mean tbe abandonment of the building of the new footbridge at this
point. A few weeks ago the Yule-
Columbia Lumber company acknowledged a certain liability to the
eity of Grand Forks in this connection, and negotiations for an amicable settlement were in progress up
to tbe day of the trial, but they appear to have come io naught. It is
not probable tbat the city will appeal the case. Macdonald and
Whiteside appeared for the lumber
company, wnile the city wus represented by City Solicitor A. C, Sutton.
Tho Greenwood Ledge says it wm
brought out in thc evidence that the
city did not own the bridge; that it
was not wholly within the corporate
limits; that thc portion damaged was
not within the city, and thut the city
did not take the same precautions
to protect the structure that it did
in regard to bridges within the corporate limits.
Tho Bev. D. E. Halt, B.A., general missionary of Baptist missions
in Brittish Columbia, will preach in
the Baptist church, morning and
evening, on Sunday, June 7th.

Election Act one would almost be
warranted in arriving at the conclusion that Conservative success in any
election depended entirely • on the
preparation of the lists by Tory partisans. No other reason can be assigned to the bitter attacks on Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's proposal to leave
the revising of thc lists to a nonpartisan judge.

FRIDAY, JUNK 5, 1908
James McDonald and J. Sercu
are doing development work on a
number of North Fork properties for
a Phoenix syndicate.
OPPOSITION tactics in the federal house are   becoming   very
tiresome  to  the people of Canada.
For at least four mohths Ihe Conservatives have monopolized the time
of the house, and a greater part of
the time their methods have been
nothing less than obstruction, pure
and   simple.     Long  debatss have
succeeded  each   other   with great
regularity upon matters of no interest   whatever   to the people of the
country.    Scandal after  scandal, so
called, have faded away when confronted   with   the   evidence, until
nothing remained but  tbe   shadow.
The Tories have failed to fasten one
solitary set of wrong-doing upon the
government.    Scores   of  men have
heen hauled   before committees   of
the house, volumes of evidence have
been   taken, and the result so far
this   session  has been an  absolute
blank.   This probably accounts for
the present attitude of the   opposition.   Knowing that a general election is not far distant, and realizing
that they cannot go before the people
with any proved scandal, and knowing well that they  have nothing to
offer better than the policy   of  the
Liberal government, they seize on an
imaginary grievance with regard to
the amendment to the Election act,
and they try to eiiiliiirrusss the government by blocking supplies until
the measure is withdrawn or phanged
10 suit their views.   If  tlm Conservatives had any polioy lo present or
11 they could suggest nny reasonable
objection to tbe Liberal policy, wilh nu
which the people appear bo well sui j
islied, ami iimlei which ihey have
prospered for twelve yenrs, then
there would be some reasonable excuse to offer for blocking the busi-
nessofthe country. But none of
these reasons can lie urged. The only
explanation is, the Conservatives
have no policy.
J.   C.   Freeman, of the Granby
smelter, has acquired   some vuluble
placer grounds on   Rock creek, and
will shortly proceed to develop the

H. Mortimer. The installation
will take place early in July, at
which time other officers will be appointed.
E. Jacobs, the secretary of the
western branch of the Canadian
Mining Institute has been advised by
the parent body at Montreal that
about 75 persons from Great Britain
and the continent are expected to
arrive in Montreal towards the end
of the summer to take part in the
Canadian excursion of the institute,
which will start out early in September. The eastern Canadian, and
European visitors will visit the
mines at Coleman, Fernie, Nelson,
Rossland, and will make a stay at
Grand Forks, Phoenix and other
Boundary points, going on later to
Victoria, where a three days' stay
will be made. The party will return eaBt on the main line, stopping
over at Bankhead to visit theC.P. R,

Phonographs Now Perfected
The Edison phonograph has now
attained a degree of perfection that
even the most sanguine ever dreamed
of. The objectionable metallic sound
has been entirely done away with.
It is simply marvelous to hear how
clear the voice is reproduced, it being impossible, when the phonograph is concealed, to tell whether
you are listening to singers or to re
productions of their voices on phon
trict during the present season, the
score being 4 to 2 in favor of the
Grand Forks team. Quite a number
of local enthusiasts accompanied the
club to Oroville.

RANDOM REMARKS
What a beautiful garden spot this
earth would now be if every had done

the dawn of history.
Our idea of a fool man is one who
i.s so busy putting something by for u
rainy day that he hasn't time to enjoy the sunshine.
It takes a lot of Christianity to enable a man to feel glad when he is
called upon for $10 to help repair the
church.
When two women exchange compliments the recording angel is kepi
us busy as when two men trade horses.
Most women have faith in their
husbands us long as they can buy
things on credit at the dry goods store.
Some people make an awful lot of
fuss about a man being his own Worst
enemy,—but why should they care!
A man does a lot of things  lie dii
likes to do because his neighbors don't
want him to do them.
When ,i man's real estate is about
to be sold for taxes he wonders where
lie is going to land.
A newly married couple should occupy apartments in which there is no
room for suspicion.
A human riddle is any man or wo-
niau whom you happen to know—including yourself.
The man who has accomplished
nothing »hile on earth is never missed
when he dies.
Grey hairs must earn respect—they
are not entitled to it simply because
they are grey.
When a man begins to tell a joke to
a woman he isn't sure where t.ie laugh
will come in.
Many a man gets the upper hand by
dealing ic to himself from the bottom
of the pack.
It's easy to induce some people to
believe a thing of which they know
nothing.
Brevity is the soul of wit; verbosity
is the weapon of the fakir and the insincere.
If you would be popular keep your
troubles to yourself; that will help
some.
Nevertheless the terms of a woman's
will are less binding than those of her
won't.
When it does not obtain for us that
which we desire, even wealth appears
cheap.
The road to success is slippery, and
he who travels thereon needs a lot of
sand.
The man who is capable of bossing
other men is seldom able to buss his

Good Game
The baseball game between the

of the best games played in this   dis-

Discoverer ofthe Granby
Henry White, the man who discovered the Granby mines in Phoenix
camp, and who is well known in this
city, left Vancouver a few days ago
for Prince Rupert and other points
along the Grand Trunk Paoific, where
he will prospect for precious metals.
Seen by a News-Advertiser reporter
in Vancouver, Mr. White expressed
the opinion that the richest section of
British Columbia is still to be exploited, and that it will be opened up
by the new transcontinental line. He
thinks that within the next two years
British Columbia will witness the
greatest movement in this direction
that it has ever seen. "Capital always follows the prospector when the
latter finds anything worth while,"
said Mr. White. "As the south is
about worked out, the eyes of all are
turned in your direction, and I fancy
they will not be mistaken." Mr.
White made a "pile" out of his interest in the JGranby finds, and has a
luxurious home at Pasadena, Cal.,
from which he has just come. Speaking of tho southern states on thePacific
coast, he says that British Columbia
is being talked of there more than any
Other part of tho world, and us there
are many wealthy residents in his
home city, he is sure that any minerals discovered will be promptly developed. Mr. White would not state
definitely his destination in the interior, but evidently has an objective
point where he expects to make a
find.
A True Heroine
A story in two chapters comes
out of the West. In the first chapter a misuse of public funds and a
betrayal ol an official trust figure.
In the second chapter devotion, self-
sacrifice and heroism in petticoats
crop out.
Something like a decade ago
Henry Barton wns city treasurer of
Muncie, Ind. He went out of office
disgraced. His accounts were short.
Money which should have gone into
municipal treasury went elsewhere.
Bondsmen paid up u part of the deficiency, and Barton moved out to
Los Angeles, where he has since
been living with his family. This
is chapter No. 1, and it is n dark
chapter.
But Barton has a daughter who is
a stenographer in Los Angeles, and
who fur years has been scrubbing tl e

stain off the family name. She set
out to square her father's accounts
with the Indiana city. Whenever
she accumulated a surplus of $25
she hastened to forward it to the
Muncie officials. Persistently, patiently and uncomplainingly she
has pursued the hard task, and one
installment after another has been
paid. The Muncie officials offered
to cancel the debt, but Miss Barton
declined to accept the suggestion.
She kept pegging away and paying
up. Last week the last dollar of her
father's shortage wus made good by
the daughter. This is chapter No. 2,
and it is a bright one.
Miss Marguerite Barton is a genuine heroine. The qualities which
she displayed in voluntarily assuming and discharging an obligation
disclose a fine piece of womanhood
and reveal a splendid chastity of
honor. The self-Bacrifice which she
underwent to clear the stigma from
the family name shines forth like a
torch gilding the mountain top. No
battlefield ever brought out a better
brand of heroism than was displayed
by Miss Barton, who trod the wine
press alone, and who was not spurred
on by excitement, by music and by
an obvious opportunity to win martial glory.
