lu evidence on the Queen's birthday,
and while many profess to lie sceplicul
of the profession of affectlun and regard nuw being so loudly indulged in,

Indulgence bus been given those loud
mouthed hlahherskltes, ihe disgruuted
politicians and professlueal agitators
who have been allowed to speak fm
and too readily accepted as the representative of the nation, But the most
rabid anti-Americanist must, soften
when n paper like iheDetroltFreePress
editorially utters sueh sentiment as
Ihese, "The honoring of Victoria's

a feast, which custom decrees and
royalty sanctions, 11 will la* the honest, sincere tribute, of counlless hearts

And muy ibe end of so beneficent a

The special significance, of ihis agreeable change to Canada, is llie fad (but
il niters a grand opportunity for a

in a day or Iwo lie well enough to return inline.
Telephone poles are now lieing distributed along the route hetween Cascade City und Grand Finks, und at the

will soon lie reached by lhe contractor
hnving the work in hand. Tlie work

of the opinion Ihnt the hills on the

Rock creek always was an erratic
stream, and to add lolls reputation it
lust week spurned its usual channel to
a great exteol. and poured n volume of
water over the east end of the bridge,
nnd lhrough china-town, thereby giving some of ihe habitations on iis bunk
a good cleansing, Ii also washed oul

Besides entering into tlie mercantile
trade Ihe company will pay attention

On Sunday and Monday lust, Grand
Forks again experienced the uncoin
furtablo effects of a flood, as a goodly
porlion of Ihe town was uniler water.
A lew thousand dollars, however,
spent in raising lhe hunks of Ketlle
river might prevent the recurrence of
the snine state of affairs, As ihe city
hns now 11 gooil prngiessive council no
iloiilit the proposition of making ihe
town habitable will be taken into consideration. To many whn witnessed
Inst week's Hood the thought suggested ilself Ibnl the money recenlly
spent in tin* Introduction of un electric
light und water works plnnl, could
bnve been more profitably invested.
An animated discussion, extending
uver a whole day's sitting, took place
before the Stevens county commissioners Inst, week, thesiibjei't being the
mute of the road from the S. ]•'. &N.
railway over lhe mnnntitlns tn Republic, There are four iivalrnul.es nnil ibe
supporters of each contended strongly
for their respective routes. The decision of the I'liiiimissiiiners is no! yel
known here. Midway is interested In
this question, since the opening up nf
a good road from Republic across the
mountains to the 8. F. &N. railway
ivould give a much shorter route than
Hint nl present travelled to reach the
railway,
On Mondny lust the Kettle river
reached the high water mark of 181)1,
and consequently much energy hud In
be displayed by residents nl different
points to preserve the bridges uver lbe
streams. At Carson!and Grand Forks,
crews of men uai-hed the structures
carefully nml worked night and day
removing drift wood, employing dyna-
mile and other agencies, The Carson
bridge stood Ihe pressure hoautlfllllv,
showing not the slightest signs of the
sl ruin put. upon il. The bridge ovei
tlie main river nlGratid Forks, lo make
it safe for tlle fui ure should huve Ihe
