WHERE DEER DRINK.
NIGHTLY VISITS TO A SPRING IN
ARIZONA TERRITORY.
Strange March Witnessed by n Prospector in the Lava Beds-Herd Approaches thc Water When the Dignified Buck treat Signals.
Canyon of Tres Aluuioa.
No region in the world possesses ns
much of weird grandeur as tlie linn
beds of Arizona. No portion of this
wild district is so weird, so fantastical-
ly wild »s the narrow canyon of Tres
Alamos. Securely hidden In lhe mountain fastnesses, It Is the most forbidding of ull tlie iiiaiiy gulches with
which the region abounds. Vegetation
Is almost absent. But lliree evidences
of what more favorable ground might
do are present. These are the three
cottouwood trees which give lhe canyon Its name. The rocks whicli compose the sides nnd Horn* of this strange
canyon are what arc known as conglomerate among prospectors. Thoy
contain a badly mingled mass of materials, Including (he precious metals,
but they are so fearfully mixed that
they nre useless for any scientific purpose. Pew men have ventured Into
the canyon, sllll fewer would care to
remain longer than necessary to drink
of the spring which gushes out of the
rocks ut lhe roots of the trees.
No man who has prowled about Arizona has seen wilder sights than L. J.
Court. He Is a prospector who has
passed many years wandering nbout
lhe Territories lu search of pay dirt.
lie ls known ull over the Pacific coast
and has been In every nook of the
dreary region where the enrlh vomited
out Ils Hoods of lava rock. He put In
peroral days and nights In Tres Alamos and witnessed the wild animals
on their nightly visits to Ihe spring for
wuter. He recently made a visit lo
Phoenix nfter having remained In the
canyon for a lime, lie relates an Interesting slory of his observations
while out lu lhe lnvn beds. He describes the canyon nnd Iheu continues
as follows:
A Wonderful Country.
A cold spring pours out of tho solid
rock and diallers Ils way noisily down
the narrow canyon. Here, ut the dead
of nlghl, come the beasts of the barren
mountains for miles around to drink of
outlined against the sky.   tn n moment
his snort was answered by the patter
of many feet, and he was surrounded
by a pack of deer.   1 counted eighteen
ln all.  The big buck ventured cautiously down the lava slope, anil wheu half
way down he halted, tossed his antlers
nbout as he sniffed the air, and theu
gave another musical snort.    At this
signal on came the rest of the pack.
They hailed Just behind him.   Then he
ventured further down, and presently
stood so close to me thut 1 could huve
hit hlm with n pistol shot. Here he balled again, aguln tossed bis head up and
j down, right and left, then guve nnother
i short nnd the rest of the puck cunie up.
I    "Three times lu tills wny Ihey baited.
j Always lhe buck acted us scout, und no
i one advanced till he gave the signal.
i Arrived at the water, the buck waded
111 a few steps, then signaled for the
others   to advance   und   drink.    And
j wlille Ihey drunk he fell buck of them
Several yards nnd stood there ns guard
tint it they hurl finished.   Such nil alert
j scout no hitman being ever mnde. And
there wns a world of pride nmi dignity
In hlm ns he stood there and watched
and waited. Surely, he realized lhat
the fate of the entire puck depended
upon hint, nud his honors nnd responsibilities snt heavily upon hlm. 11 took
the puck perhaps ten or fifteen minutes
to satisfy Its thirst. Then It moved
buck from (lie water nnd stood neur the"
buck. Now It wus the buck's turn to
drink.- He strode forth, bent his head
and drew in great draughts of the cool
water. But he drunk with his dignity
still upon hiin. The puck waited for
him. and when lie wns once more at Its
head there was n wild scramble up tlie
jugged shies of the bluff.
Other Animals Seen.
"I was fascinated by the spectacle
and resolved to witness It nguiii. So
1 stayed nnother night. The performance wns repeated exactly. Again ou
the third ulght they came to drink iu
the snme way, nnd tlie next night and
tlie next, nnd so ou. till It dawned upon
me that'I must quit loafing and get
buck to work. Of course, the deer
srented me nt-onee and knew all along
just where I lay, but 1 kept very still
and they did uot seem (o mind me.
"The smaller anlmnls came at all
times of (he nlghl, and the smaller they
were the more noise they made. The
foxes were the slyest of all and the
most timid. They go on a dead run nil
Ihe lime, with their* heads always wriggling from side to side. The first time
they sniffed my presence at camp they

the miming waters. And here, lying
quietly In the moonlight, I have been n
silent spectator of some of the queerest
sights that man's ryes ever beheld. I
have seen the deer und the wildcat und
tliu coyote's uud lire tufted lynx, and
even a lumbering ciniiuinon bout* or
two, come here to drink. I hnve lulu
quite still In the moonlight Und watched Ihem for hours, and there Is uo more
filscluallng spectacle to be seen In thc
opeu.
"It Is a wonderful country, and no
man ever set foot Into u wilder region.
There nre three Cottonwood trees,
where the spring pours out of tlie rock,
and along tlie banks of the creek uro
many willows. Nenr the spring Is a
level spot of ten ncres. The lirst night
I camped there I was tired. But after
that. I stayed on for two weeks because
ot the wonderfully weird charm of the
plnce. The walls of the canyon are
marvels of conglomerate mnlpals or
lava. There's gold, Iron, copper, cobblestone, granite, marble, sandstone
and silver ore ull ground up lu a mountainous mass lhat is as bare of vegetation as lhe day It poured from the heart
of the earth. It was vomited forth In
the most hideous shapes Imaginable,
and seen In the moonlight these shnpes
take on all kinds of horrible and wonderful aspects. It's a region worth
traveling miles to see, and you cun
reach It in a day's l*pe from Congress.
Buck Acta as Scout.'
"But the average man who goes there
will not see what I saw in the moonlight, I'll tell you how tlie deer come
to drink—It's the prettiest sight In the
world. The first night I wns on the
point of going to sleep, when I heard
a snort from the top of the bluff above
me. I looked, and (here was a big buck
with magnificent antlers standing on
the very brink, his dusky figure sharply
made a wild Scamper back to cover behind the rocks, but presently they ventured out again, and, after three or four
essays, they finally came down uud
drunk.
"I suw only one bear. He wus a prct-
ly big fellow, but I huve seen lots bigger. He came down the bluff like n big
pig, his nose rooting lu the ground at
every step. No, I wasn't nfrald of him.
There Isn't an animal In America, I believe, that will touch muu unless man
makes the attack. Ile eame within a
few yards of me. stood still and stared
at me. 1 met his gaze calmly and, I
iM-lleve, fearlessly. Then he went on
to tlie water, waded boldly In and
drunk his till. Of ull tlie animals that
came to drink there ouly this gruff nnd
during old cinnamon liear went nbout
his business fearlessly. Even the coyotes and bob cats moved cautiously,
and would hnve turned tall and scampered off If I had stirred about. But
Bruin wns uot that kind of an animal.
"I prospected In the region a little,
but In a day or so I saw there could be
nothing located there. Tlie lava ls of
loo recent a date, und the conglomerate
altogether too conglomerated to lie of
any use whatever, lu the early days
there was n picket iwst nt Tres Alamos,
and the larger bluft back of the spring
Is the famous Signal butte that you
have read nbout lu Capt. King's novel
by that name. You can't Imagine what
a weird nnd uncanny sight It Is ln the
moonlight, nor what entrancing sights
I have witnessed there when the deer,
the bear, the lynx, the coyote and the
fox come out of their hiding places In
the dead of night and drink at the
springs."

Greyhounds of the Sens Are Growing
Bigger anil Faster.
The new flyer, Kaiser Wilhelm der
Crosse, which, by u Complication of
genders upon which the Inventor of
the German language himself could
hardly hnve improved, Is to lie the
"queen of the sens" until the still newer Oceanic robs "her" of this distinction, brings up, us euch of her predecessors bus done In her turn, the qiies-
lion whether there Is nny assignable
limit lo the advance on ihe Athiniic
ferry.    Is ll  worth while to burn Win
ions of coal u duy, amounting lu tho
course of u voynge Ion good-sized ship,
for the suite of gaining two or three
knots of speed?
Export opiulon, ns evidenced by the
Infallible test of willingness to   risk
money on II, seems to be thut It Is. At-
(antic Steamers keep on growing big
ger and bigger nnd fasler and faster
year by year, 'l'he Knlser Wiliielm
der Crosse develops three times the
liowcr Hint hns yet been obtained nl
Niagara, nnd the Oceanic will be driven
by a force a third greater than that
If there Is enormous expenditure of energy while the need lusts, the drain is
soon over. The Atlantic voynge is reduced to a sprint. A twenty-three
knot ship can ninke two round trips in
a year more than one of the twenty
knots, nud, when she ulso carries from
20 to 40 per cent, more on each trip,
there Is considerable margin for coal
bills.
Twenty years ago (lie commercially
attainable limit of speed seemed a matter of very simple calculation. It was
somewhere between sixteen and nineteen knots. Unimpeachable mathematical formulae showed that the power
required to drive a vessel Increased us
the culie of the speed, and 11 was soou
evident thai, at this rate, the cost of
rapid transit would soou become prohibitory; but the builders persistently
kept ou until they confouuded the
mathematicians, They proved that the
terrifying formulae were accurate
within only certain limits, and that
when the wearying hill between sixteen nnd nineteen knots was surmounted there was comparatively easy traveling on the other side.—New York

Kansas Once Inhabited by a  Breed of
Insects Now Extinct,
l-'ifly dollars seems an extravagant
price to pay for one beetle. Yet Kansas wus once Inhabited by such Insects,
und they sold rend-
lly for tliat much
and sometimes for
iiiorr'.
Twenty-one yean
ago I wo young scl-
enilsts, Prof. S. W.
Wlllistou and Hr.
II. A. Brous, while
e x p 1 o ring    thn
branches  of  (he
Smoky   Hill   Ulver
for fossil remains,
came ncross I Ii e
rarest of beetles,
tin. ii ii.Mr.'hiin, be.
longing to the fiun-
' am kxpk.vkivi* niro. Hy of voracious tl-
i ger beetles, the highest type of these
; Insects.
Muring the remaining days spent ln
j the field the two naturalists studied the
I insects' hnbils closely.    They learned
| tliat this species wns even more  ferocious   In Its mil ure thnn other mem-
I tiers of the tiger beetle family.     The
larvae    dig   holes nboui a foot deep.
j Climbing by two sharp slckel-shaped
| mandibles to the toji of   the burrow,
with jaws open, level wllh the ground,
they wnlt for nny unwary prey  that
attempts to cross the opening.    They
are not only carnivorous but combative.   If a stick or straw lie thrust luto
the hole the angry grub will fasten ou
It with a tenacious grip, and will  be
dragged from ils hole rather thnn give
up Its supposed enemy.
In ten dnys 1,170 specimens were
taken. "The ground wns so thoroughly
stripped of beetles," snid Hi*. Willlston
In his office In Snow Hull Museum, nt
Iynwrence, "tliat subsequent expeditions sent for years afterward from
jKastern museums were never able to
earn their suit. If the beetles could
.have been sold ut prices pnid in 18T0
they would hare brought more thun
$110,000."
ROYALTY AT THE PLAY.
Cause u Whole Lot of Trouble When
They Go to a Theater.
Tlie outward and visible sign of the
presence of royalty at a London theater is the Guard of Honor, composed of
a corporal's guard of grenadiers stu-
tioued outside the doors.
At the houses bearing the title "Royal," Mrury Lane, the Haymarket and
the Coveut Garden, the Guard of Honor ls nlwuys mounted tbe year round
while performances are given. Thus
in case royalty should make up its
mind ut the last moment to look In the
manager would be prepared. Although
the Prince of Wales always pays well
for his theatrical amusements, there
Is also Increased trouble and expenditures Incurred by the bouse, of which
outsiders have no idea.
At Mrury Lane Theater there Is attached (o (he box a drawing room beautifully upholstered in old gold and
tapestry. A couple of bottles of wine,
a box of cigars and a case of the
Prince's favorite cigarettes are laid ou
the table. There Is also the program—
a white satin square—upon which the
cast is printed ln gold. If It is the
Princess of Wales whom they are entertaining the managers provide a bouquet, which Is placed on the ledge of
the box.
It ls understood that ordinarily when
members of ^he royal family visit the
theater they nre Incognito, and unless
the orchestra strikes up the national
anthem, tlie majority of the audience
arc not aware of their presence. If the
anthem Is played it is a sign that the
visit is a formal one and the audience
rises as a murk of respect.

Strong Fate I.i tie Shows a Person Whc
Will Receive High Honors.
The line of fate begins at the bracelets thnt surround the wrls.t and extends ncross the palm of the hand to
the base of the
middle finger. It
Is seldom as
straight as Is indicated by the black
line ln the Illustration, but zigzags
back and forth,
occasionally d I s -
appearing or run-
n I a g Into other
lues. A good fate
Hue shows a per-
III Lisniir 1'a.mk. son who will receive high honors In life. Accompanied
by a good head line, It shows a person
who will mukeutlnntidal success of life.
When the line of life Is weak a good
fate line will strengthen it and prolong
life. People with great vitality always
have good fate Hues. Breaks In the
line Indicate losses—the more breaks
the more losses. Two parallel Hues indicate double success. A branch line
from the fate line to the line ot life Indicates thnt the Individual has been
controlled by fate all Ills life. Spots on
the fate line Indicate losses by fire.
The absence of the fnte line Indicates
n subject who will lead a humdrum
life .without either experiencing great
losses or great successes.

A wag who, for a consideration, helped the Cincinnati police court to distinguish between the Innocent and the

ABOU I CABLES.
ilirdliug   the   Karlh   with   Them—In
Case of War.
A cable will  be  laid  next summer
i from Scotland to Iceland by wny of the I
I I-'nroe Islands.    The Icelandic parliament hns voted n subsidy to the enter- ,
J prise.   Il is believed lhat Great Britain
I will connect Ireland with British Amer- j
i Ica by cable, so us to give her another
j cable route to this country, savs I,es- '
He's Weekly.
Less thnn fifty years ngo the lirsl oa-
! ble wns laid between Grent Britain and
I the American continent.   Now u cable
• Is hild every year.  The lnsi transatlantic cable wus lnld by the Commercial
j Cable Company In 1804,   bul   many
\ smaller cables hnve been luid since.
i .lust now the Interest of lhe world, or
: so much of ii as is absorbed by the cable question, Is centered lu the eonuer-
I tion between the American continent
und the fur west under   the   Pacilic
1 ocean.   Greut Britain bus undertaken
j to lay it cable from British Columbia
to Australia by way of the FIJI Islands.
At the snme time two American com-
ponies are struggling for the privilege
of lnylng n cable from our    western
coast lo Japan nnd China by wuy of
Hawaii.   When one of lhe.se Pacific cu* j
bles Is completed the earth will bo glr- j
died.    The consummation    hns   been
slow ln coming.    It Is promised at a ;
lime when Teslu claims that he will
soon be able lo telegraph to nny part of
the world or every part of the world
without cables or eveu In ml wires.
There nre ubout 152,000 miles of en- j
lilt's, which hnve cost nbout $200,000,-
000. These figures nre only approximate, because no one knows exactly
the condition of all lhe cables. Undoubtedly some useless and abandoned cables still appear on the map.
Nine-tenrths of the cables of the world
uro controlled by Great Britain, nnrl
eveu American cables make a lirst
landing on British-American soli,
the ten transatlantic cables in use not
one lnnils ln lhe United Slates. Those
which do not land on British possessions lmve I heir termini ou a French
Island. It has beeu suid thnt in cuse of
war with the United States Great Britain would have nn advantage over us
Ihrough her control of the cables. Shu
would not control tlie French cables,
and It Is not likely that she would control lhe Canadian cables lung.
The roule of every cable on the
ocean's bed has been marked and mapped carefully, If we hud trouble with
Grent Britain It would be n comparatively simple thing to send a repair*-
ship out to grapple for fhe cables nud
cut Ihem. It would be difficult to patrol each line, and ll Is altogether likely
thai a conflict between Great Britain
and the United States, if It cniue to
serious blows, would be settled without Interference with the cables.

Righteousness uml Salvation*
AI death believers ever gaze toward

they need Is, "I will be merciful to
their unrighteousness—to their right-

will I remember no more." it Is diiti-
eull lu a time like tills which takes the
fact of salvation so easily, to understand bow hard the lirst Christians
found It to believe, and how strong wns
ihe consolation which Gorl administered to them. Remember how the Apostle assured his trembling hearers of lhe
awful. Incredible wonder of the great
salvation. "Wherefore God. willing
more abundantly to show unto the
heirs of promise the Immulablllly of

thut by two Immutable things In which
it was Impossible for God ur He, tve

"Yes, sir,'.' said Sammy, "she always

VIA GRAND FORKS.
The Klondyke fever, like most contagious deseases, i$ grqwing in intpqsity
and is spreading rapidly. There is no
Hueition but 1898 will witness a gold excitement the like o( which has never
bo;n |i(*ard of. How ]oi;g it will last
jlepends largely upon the amount of
gold brought out in the spring and the
extent, if any, of new discoveries. For
tne present, at lea-it, all eyes turned
■k'ukon wards and thousands will flock to
fbe northeru gold fields this season, regardless of ennsiquences. The over-
jund trave] wjll be large, even if it is
confined entirely to the overflow from
the coaBt cities.
While wc feel certain that tho Klondike is already lilled with moo people
than there are diggings and that the
gjunihry restrict and the Colville Injun Reservation aSotds better opportunities to nuke mrmey in prospecting
and mining than Klondyke, and would
ail vise no qne to go there in search ol a
fortune, hec^use cigq out of every l.ooo
persons who go ar-* doomed to disappointment. But as long as people are
bound to go and nothing tbe M.neh
could say would stop thpm, we would
like tq see every ono go hy the Spo-
jtaqe toute via Grand Forks. Improved
transportajisn facilities betwrcn oast
points will undoubtedly enable thousands to 1 jach Skaguay, Dyea, St. Mich-
e^ls pr Wriftgel. There are obsta les
between those places and the Kloijdyke
which will take months of hard work
•in-1 enornjous expenditures ol money to
pleaf away ijnd it is a loregone conclusion that no improvements will be com-
plettd in timo to permit the thousand,
who will go that way, pursuing their
jiurney to the promised land this sum-
nier. No such difficulties confront those
who decide to make the trip by the Spo*
kar;r: n:i:ty yia Grand Forks. It is ail
pl.ua sailing from start to finish, that is
.'. proper precautions have been taken
111 the matter of outfitting at the start.
Be sure and see that your ticket reads.

PERSONAL COURTESY.
AT the Toronto Young Liberal's
banquet hijld recently, Sir Richard Cort-
wright, in his address, declared thai
whenever the Canadian ministers had
come in contact with the representatives of the United States Government
at Washington they bad found them die-
posed to act in a fair and courteous
spirit. Sir Richard doubtless rightly
describes the situation as it confronted
himself and bis colleagues as individuals. Notwithstanding this ascertion
pf Sir Richard's, the fact still remains
that after the present Canadian minister:;' *;rst to Washington thp dtjties ot
the McKinley tariff were flapped on
Canadian products exported to the
United States, and that after their so-
pond visit, Congress passed a bill whose
purposo was to kilt the Canadian pelagic
sealing industry. Washington's kind
words butter no Canadian parsnips,
yvhile Washington's acts, if tbey pSected
then purpose, would spoil some Canadian dinners.
There ate a grca1 many complaints
that a large portion oftl e trade -'-hich
m.turally belongs to Grand Forks is going to Greenwood and Nelson. The
merchants of Greenwood seem to have
advertisements in their local papers
which is not the case with their rivals
111 this city. There may be a connection
between these  facts.
The Odd Fellows Building and Investment company, limited, has been incorporated under the "Companies Act,
1897," as a limited company with a capital of twenty thousand dollars dividea
into uvn thousand shares of ten dollars
each. The registered office of the company will be situate in the city of Nel
son B. C.
If the dominion government fails to
grant a charter to the Kettle River Valley railway, lhe people of the Boundary
country can find consolation in the fact
that they can set on the fence and see
the reservation traffic go by.
The dominion parliament .vould do a
popular thing it they would give the
Kettle River Valley railway what they
are asking for.
The House will me.it in the new par

The Ontario government proposes to
*tpend $2.'i,«xi in erecting buildings for
a new nqrmql school at London. The
fact (hat some three hundred applications were n*|^de foj* one teacher's position in the western part of the province
pf Ontario, goes to show tbat another
normal school to turn out moro teachers
may be a necessity ol politics, but it certainly is not irom an cducitiou.il stand
point.
Now is t'.e time to bry real estate. It
will be romembertd, last spring, between the first of March and the first of
April there was a greater adyanqe in
jhe price of Grand Forks real estate
than in all the rest of the year. There
is no good reason why the experience
of 1897 will not be repeated in 1898.
The political ball was set 1 rolling in

Tbe Record acknowledges a tall last
Thursday evening from a delegation of
Grand Forks ladies and wishes to apologize to them for au apparent lack of
hospital! y on our part. We had just
closed 30 on copy and were boxing tacks
to the best of our ability while the
main-stay of the office was making up
a form, when we were astonished by a
succession ol shouts in fiont of the
oflice, ranging from high C down to the
deep basso of the lower clef, Wilh a
shooting slick in one band and a column rule in the other vyc responded, to
the call and found that the visit was a
friendly one and that the side arms were
unnecessary. We were about, with
our accustomed gallantry, tn invite all
tho ladjes injo our sanctum, but we
thought of the long galleys of type sitting around on benches, boxes, ar.d
cases, and visions of pi floated like a
chilly wind through the corridors of
our cranium. We were mindful too of
the accumulated rubbish of months
lhat carpeted thc floor and kept the
wanton winter breeze from dallying
with our tender toes, and knowing that
tbe merry faces of our callers would be
clouded if permitted to gaze upon such
a perfect specimen of printing oflice
housekeeping, we kindiy bnt firmly refused to listen to the demands of courtesy and sociability, and permitted our
fair visiters to depart feeling perhaps
tbat they had experienced the sensation ol coining in contact with the icy
heart and frigid ipitt.—Reservation Record.

reservation, has sold a portion of his interests in that camp, including a one-
third interest in the Lucky Two, for

TO OPEN THE RESERVATION.
The South half to Be Opened to Mining
Men.
Senators Wilson and Turner, of Washington, U, S. A , Jiave agreed to introduce an amendment to tbe Indian appropriation bill for opening the sou h-
ern half of tho Colville Reservation, in
thu state of Washington, to mineral locations. It wili be remembered that at
Ihe last session of Cougiess an unsuccessful attempt was made to bave the
sputlicrn portion ol this reservation
opened for mineral locations, *nd thc
general impression seemed to prevail
that nothing would be done at this session of congress to let in tbe mining
men, therefore, this announcement
comes as a surprise to tbe public. In
tbe event (hat Me srs. Turner and Wilson are successful in there efforts to
have the south half of ihe reservation,
with its numerable wealth of gold and
silver, thrown open to settlement this
spring it drill be done by proclamation
of the president, as was done in the eilg*}
of the north half. This proclamation,
it is hoped, will be so issued that the
land may be entered in May or April.
Associated Charities Club Meets.
A meeting otthe Associated Charlities
Club, was held at Mrs W. Johnsons residence last Wennesday at this meeting five
new members were admitted Mr. Fred
Walloston being present handed over to
the treasurer ofthe club $22.50 being
proceeds of the rocent masquerade ball.
The meeting then decided to give a
New England supper and Valentine
social on Friday tbe 11 th inst. just be
fore St. Valentine's day. The new
Englnndsocial is considered a most enjoyable affair, it consists of the serving of
hotbakesbeans. brown bread andcoffee.
The yalentine social is also capable of
creating much fun for the young people,
and everyone should attend.
After discussing seveial miner matters relative to the association the meeting adjourned until the last Wednesday
in February, when a meeting will be
held at the residence of Mrs. Jpsaph
Manly.
Sieigh Ride and Dance
A merry sleighing party and dance
was given last evening by the members
of the Whisper Club. The party consisting of e,bout twenty couples, left
Grand Forks about 8 o'clock in the
evening, in two four-horse sleighs and
drove to Nelson's hall, sjtuatsd on the
boundary line at Carson, where they
were met by a delegation from Carson
and Nelson, nnd for two or three hours
joy reigned supreme, and the light fantastic was tripped to lively music furnished by t$essrs. Sheads and Day.
About 12 o'clock the party drove
home and partook of an oyster supper
at the Delmonico restaurant. Nothing
occurred on the entire trip to mar the
plea-ure of the particpams, and much
credit is due to Mesrrs. Keough, Wol
laston and Sheads, tbe officers of the
organization, for the royal manner in
which the club entertained their friends.
City Council Meet.
The regular weekly session of the
city council met yesterday with Alderman Davis in the chair, after the minutes of the last meeting had been read
and adopted, Clerk Wollaston read an
invitation from Mr. Speaker Higgips to
tbe city council to be present at the
opening of the local legislature on the
10th inst. fhe clprk was then instructed to send a suitable reply to the communication.
The clerk then read a petition signed
by sixty ot tbe resident ratepayers of
Grand Forks, which prayed that the
council donate a sum of money uot to
exceed S300 to assist iu defraying the
expenses of a delegation tp Ottawa to
assist in securing Mr. Corbin's pbarter.
Alderman L. A. Manly then f^oved
that tbe treasurer be instructed to issue
cheque for J300 in favor of Mr. Armstrong who was tbe chosen delegate of
the board ot trade.
The meeting then adjourned.
To Bridge the Kettle River.
A subscription paper is being passed
around for tbe purpose of raising money
for the construction of 1 bridge across
the Kettle river at first street. This is
the bridge that the government has offered to donate (1,000 toward building, provided the citijons of Grand 1'oiku will
pay the balance, which will only amount
to about (70a. A bridge at this point
is badly needed and it is only a matter
of a short time until it will have tn be
built, and the people of Grand For^a
should do everything possible to secure
this liberal donation on the part ef tne
gaverameat.
Cruelty to Animals.
There are some half dozen poor
starved horses tbat have been roaming
about thc town all winter, some of them
are said to be owned by business men
of this city, who apparently dp not care
whether these poor animals live through
thp winter or not. Some few weeks ago
one of these animals completely des
troyedgio worth of sleigh robes, in
front of the Grand Forks hotel.
It is hoped that the city authorities
will take some steps toward compelling
the owners of these starving bqrses to
see that thoy are cared tor at once.
To Purchase Band Instruments.
There is a project on foot among the
musical element of the city to give an
entertainment for thp purpose of raising money for the purchase of a set of
band instruments. The first of the series is to be a minstrel show provided the
talent of the town can be enlisted in the
eaterprise.
Notice to Contractors.
Notice is hereby given that the plans
and specifipations for the construction of
a bridge across tho Kettle river, on First
street, cap be sepn at the office of L. A.
Manly, and that sealed tenders will be
received for building the same until

That is the Opinion of Deputy
Attorney General,
A VERY CLEAR DECISION
Advises the Electors to Agree  Upon
the Members of the Council
Themselves,
The following  communication  from
Arthur D. Smith, deputy attorney general, was received tbis morning by F, H.
McCarter, in reply to a request made to
the attorney general for up opinion  as
to the legality of the resent mnniolpial
election held in tbe city.   The answer
is a very comprehensive one and gives
evidence of having been fully considered belore being rendered:
Memorandum respecting tbe position of
Grand Forks City in view of tbe disqualification and lack of candidates.
The position of the city appears to be
as follows •—
Havini been ncorporated by Letters
Fatems lesuad under the provisions of
tbe Special Act, vii: Tbe speedy In-
corpartion of Towns Act, 1897, an e'ec"
tion for members of tbe council was held
on the 8th day of May, 1897, and tbe
mayor and a|dermen were elected.
The correspondence now before tbe
department does qot expressly state
whether the council then eleqted were
duly qualiiied out at any 'ate tbey
bave acted until tbe present date.
The first point for consideration therefore is. whether tbey do not require legislation to validate their acts. In accordance with lgw this council should
have been replaced by another to be
elected on Thursday tbe 13th of January and an election was held tbe validity
of wbich is now under consideration.
Against the validity of the same a number of objections are urged:
1. 'foe municipality failed to comply
with tbe following clauses of the Municipal Elections Act, iggfj, vi*: 1/ (a), 17 (c)
and 17 (d). vi;; Place for nominations,
do for polls and D. R, O's.
2. The council appointed their city
clerk aa returning officer but such officer
was npt sworn in; as is presumably called for '■>•/ Section 48 of the Municipal
Clauses Act,
3. The voters list was not certified as
corrected by the mayor as provided in
-section 8 of the Municipal Elections Act
and presumably the returning offi .cr
was not furnished with a list of voters as
provided by section 17.
4. Objection is taken to the qualification of one of the aldermen elected on
the ground that bjs property does not lie
entirely in tbe ward for which be is elected. I see nothing in any qf the Acts,
however, to support this objection.
5. The municipality being divided into two wards a sufficient number of candidates and mayor and aldermen were
nominated in each ward but between the
{time of nomination and the election
pome candidates found that they had
pot the necessary property qualification
an.4 withdrew leaving no candidates in
one ward. (Not*;: Tbe withdrawal is
pot expressly stated but it is understood
(bo facts are as set oui.)
There is a further practical difficulty
before the municipality that there are
not within its limits at present a suffi-
ciant number of duly qualified persons
(o fil) ttye vacant offices in the council.
Pealing with these objections seriatim
tbe following results are arrived ati
1. Tbe effect of this would appear to
be to render the election null and void,
{n Reg, eg rel. Allemaing v. Z juger, 1
Out. P. R., 219, it was held (hat where
tbe place for an election bad to be appointed by bylaw the appointment of
the place by resolution was a nullity and
*n Reg. ex rel. Pieston, 2 Ont. C. L.
Cbamb. R. 178, the provisions in regard
to the place of holding the election were
glso strictly construed.
z. I do not think tbat this would in
itself have been illegal and avoided tbe
election as in the case no returning officer had been appointed, the city clerk
would have acted ex officio and he no
doubt was duly sworn in as city clerk.
3. It is not stated upon what list the
election was held. It is presumed that
the returning officer had some list and
fhat the list under yrhicb he was holding the election waa publicly exhibited.
If so, -(nd no elector at tbe time took
the objection, it is possible that (he election might be upheld. $ce in one case
in Ontario, Reg. e* rel, Davis v. Wil*
son, 3 U. C. L. J. 166, it was held that
wbere the returning officer was ngt finished with a list and Rot withstanding
proceeded with the election that it was
jin irregularity which rendered the election liable to be avoided, if the objection were taken gy someone qualified to
lirge it, though it might not -P80 facto
fender tbe election void, See Harrison's Municipal Manual, notes to Section 131. The pqjpt however is doubtful and the electiqn seems unsafe.
4. In view of the almost certain invalidity of the election this last question
is a most important one as even if a new
election is held no city council p»n be
elected. It appears necessary therefore
that an act should be passed not only
validating the actions of the last council bnt also providing tor the municipal
government of theeity for {he coming
Vear.
The best wa,y qf obtaining this legislation is for (be electors themselves to
agree upon the members of the council
and join in a petition for an act appointing them irrespective of property qualifications. This will get rid of all difficulties as it is understood that by next
January there will be plenty of candidates wbo possess tbe necessary qualifications.
eagerly watch the contest with satisfac,
tion regardless of who gets there first,
To insure the early construction of a
railway into the district the dominion
government must grant a charter to the
K. R. V- company, otherwise the C. P.
R. wil) doubtless take its time iu building this way.

THE    CTTY   GIVES   #?00
Mr. Richard Armstrong Selected at a
Mass Meeting Held Last Thursday Afternoon.
For |o cents you can become the
proud possessor of loo aged newspapers
bv calling on Miijs goo A|cC;*.rtcr at the
HlflER office.
The mass meeting called by the
board of trade Thursday afternoon for
tbe purpose of taking into consideration the advisibility of sending a representative to Ottawa from Grand Forks,
to urge upon the dominion government
tbe necessity of granting to tbe Kettle
River Valley railway a charter, was
largely attended and harmonious in
every respect. The meeting was called
to be held in thc office of City Clerk
Wollaston, but the attendance was so
large, an adjournment had to be taken
to the Victoria hotel in order tbat everyone could gain admittance.
The meeting was called to order by
President Manly, wbo briefly stated tbat
the objoct of the same was tor the purpose of making provision i for thc sending ot some one to Oitawa to look after
the interests of Grand Forks, and to
press upon the members of the house of
parliament that the future development
of the Boundary country depends
largely upon the granting of a charter
to the Kettle River Valley railway.
That since tbe C. p. R. h*d acquired Mr.
Heinze's interests, tbat unless a charter
was granted to the afoiosaid road, the
field would be left entirely to tbe C, P.
R. and it was more than cetain that
tbey would not build through tbis district for some lime to come, unless they
were forced to do so by the construction of a competing line into the district. The fact lhat the gpyernment
had given to tbe Kootenays competi
tion in transportation facilites, had done
more toward making lhat district what
it is today than anyother one thing. If
the government would give to the Boundary conntry tbe same competition, in
twelve months from this time, it would
be making huge strides toward heading
tbe list of the mineral producing dis
tricts of the province. But without
transportation facilities and competi-
t on in the matter of freight rates, the
people wbo bave been for the past few
years endeavoring to develop the resources of the district, might as well
join Coxey's army and hit the road
Loud cries of hear I hear! came from ill-
over the room.
A private letter to Mr. Manly from
parties in Ottawa was read conveying
the information that the C. P. R. people
had purchased Mr, Heinze's railway and
smelter in the Kootenay district, and
his charter and land grant for a line
from the Columbia river to Pentieton,
and that every influence possible was
being brought to bear upon tbe dominion government against the granting of
a charter to the Kettle River Valley
railway company and suggested the advisibility of sending two representatives
from the lioundary district to Ottawa,
one from Greenwood aad one from
Grand Fotks to place before the members of parliament tho resources of tbe
Boundary country, wbich with competi:
tiou* in railway transportation, would
soon become one of tbe richest mineral
producing districts in the province.
Continuing, Mr. Manly said there
was no question but everyone present
fully realized the importance of having
some one in Ottawa to look after our interests in this matter, but the question
of providing ways and means to get him
there was one thing that would have to be
fully considered by those present before
steps could be taken toward sending a
representative. An invitation was then
extended to those present to express
their views on tbe subject,
Mr, Addison suggested tbat as every
citizen oi Qrand Forks was interested
alike in the Kettle River Valley railway
securing a charter, and lhat in order
that every prpperty owner would con?
tribute bis portion of the expense incurred in sen Jing a delegate to Ottawa,
that it would be nothing more than fair
that the city council should appropriate
tbe amount necessary. By this method
the burden would De very light, not to
exceed a mill on each dollar of valuation.
Mr. Cumings desired to know what
amount would be required to send a
representative to Ottawa.
Mr. Manly stated tbat as it would be
necessary for him to be in Ottawa from
six to eight weeks, and he would bave
tiavel in pretty fast society, it would
take from seven to eight hundred dollars. Of that amount he was willing
personally to subscribe (200 if the citizens would make up tbe balance.
Owing to the stringent times, be coincided with Mr, Addison's idea of the
city council making an appropriation toward an e-pense fund, but as a member
of tbat body, he did not feel like doing
anything in the matter unless it was the
unanimous wish of the r**,te payers of
the pity.
Alderman Davis was of the opinion that
if tbe charter would be granted to the
railway company it would be alright for
the city to make an appropriation.
Harry Sheads and Robert Hewitt,
also spoke in favor of the council making at) appropriation, and expressed
the opinipn that there was not a ratepayer in the town that would object.
F. H. McCarter then moved the lol-
lowing resolution, which was seconded
by Richard McCarren:
whereas the early construction of a
railway into the Boundary country is of
vital importance to every resident of the
district, and aa 'he government has been
liberal with the Kootenays in providing
competition in the matter qf transportation facilities; and
Whereas the Kettle River Valley
Riilway company is making application (9 (fe? dpnyiiniop parliament for  a
charter to build a railway into Ihe Boundary distrtct, and is asking for no pub*
lie aid and has expressed its intentions
of beginning actual construction immediately upon the granting of the charter; and
Whereas it behooves the citizens of
the Boundary country lo use every honorable means within their power to urge
upon the dominion parliament that it is
an absolute necessity, for the rapid development of the district, that a charter
be granted to the said Kettle River Valley railway company, and tbnt in o:der
that ibe wishes of residents of Gr-*nd
Fcrks and the district may be placed before tbe members of the house in a
ptoper manner, thatit becomes necessary
to send a representative Irom Grand
Fcrks to Ottawa.    Therefore be it
Resolved, That the city council be
requested to app-opriate a sum not
more than three hundred dollars toward defrajing tbe expenses of the
same.
Before putting the adoption of this
resolution Mr. Manly invited every ratepayer present to express his opinion on
the subject.
Mr. Chas. Cumings, secretary and
treasurer of the Grand Forks townsite
company, stated that if Mr. Manly
gave ji'loo and the city council 8300, that
the townsite company would make up
the balance of the amount necessary to
pay the expenses of thc trip.
The adoption of the resolution was
then put to a vote and carried without a
disssenting voice.
The question of who should go to Ottawa was the next one brought up for
consideration.
P. H. McCarter stated that as everyone present was awarp that unfortii-
nately for the welfare of the city the inhabitants of Grand Forks were divided
among themselves, that if a person was
named from one side of thc house, the
other side would oppose him, from a
I mere matter of policy if nothing more;
that the present was no lime for stiring
up factional differences, and as ihis was
one wbich needed the hearty and united
co-operation of every resident in theeity
and of the district, he moved tbat some
one not identified wuh either of the factions be selected to go to Ottawa, and
suggested that Mr, Richard Armstrong,
the resident representative of the Toronto Guarantee and Trust company, be
pamed as such representative.
Mr. Hewitt heartily agreed with the
suggestion of Mr. McCarter and moved
tbat Mr. Armstrong be selected to represent us in Ottawa, which was seconded by Mr. James Addison, and being
put by the chair was unanimously carried.
On motion of F II. McCarter, seconded by Robt. Hewitt, the chair was
instructed to appoint a committee of
three to circular a petilion requesting
tbe city council to appropriate not over
$300 toward paying the expenses of Mi.
Armstrong to Ottawa,
The chair then appointed Robt. Hewitt, Chas. Cumings and James Addison.
Those present were requested to come
forward and sign the petition, after
wbich the meeting adjourned.

The fight between the old town and
new town has broke out in a new place
like a running lever sore of an old
standing. This time it has made its appearance within the folds of the Presbyterian mission and the Rov, McClennan
is the bone of contention. It appears
thut shortly after that gcmleman's arrival in the city, as pastor of the (irand
Forks Mission, it was fully demonstra.
ted to him that if he was to have an audience to preach to, that something
must be done to secure a place of worship near the residence portion of the
city, the present location of tbe church j
being to far away to permit ot a very
large attendance. Mr. McClennan at
once took steps looking toward the removal of Ihe church building frorii its
present location, about a mile and a
half from Ihe city to a location near the
school house, donated hy the Grand
Forks townsite company. This would
have put the church building nearly in
the center of the present incorporated
limits of Grand Forks and about three-
quaters of a mile from upper Grand
Korks,
When this project was ma-'e known
at a church moeting recently held it
was met with bitter opposition by
Messrs. McCallum, Hay et al, own-
res of the new townsite and their sympathizers who looked upon tbe removal
of the church as being detrimental to
Iheir interests, and after engendering
considerable haid feelings between th:
various members of the church, it was
decided to drop the matter. Now, in
order lo get even wilh the pastor,
Messrs, Hay et al have circulated a petition addressed to the Moderator of the
Presbytery of Kamloopo, asking for the
removal of the Rev. McClennan.
Now a counter petition is being circulated by tbe pillars of the church residing in Grand Forks, setting for'.h that
thc removal of the pastor would be detrimental to (he intercuts cf the church
here and praying that tho city of Grand
Forks be made into a mission within it
self and that the Rev. McLennan be retained in charge of tho same, A |!st
showing the amount of money that his
been contributed toward the maiutain-
ance of a mission will also be fore-
warded with the petition.
While the Minek does not claim to
be advised as to the merits or demerits
of thc controversy, nor does it desire to
express an opinion as to whp is at fault
in this disgraceful row in the church,
that has been kicked up over nothing
more than jealojsy, the outgrowth of
two opposition towns, which in reality
should be banded together in harmony
and love, instead of quairolling like two
Tom cats; it cannot refrain from pointing out the fact that this factional strife
is doing more toward giving both places
a black-eye and making them the laughing stock of the outside world.
Later—Since the above has been
placed in type tbe Minek has come in
possess of a copy of the charges pre:
ferred against the Rev. McCIennen,
which will be published next week. In
tbis connection we desire lo state that
they nre lo absurd to be worthy of notice,
and brands tbe person, who would stoop
so low to make such wilful and malicious
charges, a cur of the lowest"order, unworthy of the respect of any community, We have take steps to obtain the
names of the parties yiho are responsible for these libelous charges, which
be given to the public as soon as they
are obtained.
AT IT AGAIN.
Another Shaoting Scrape Reported From
Eureka, Wash.
Another shooting scrape is reported
from Eureka, on the reservation, wherein a man by tbe name of Genders was
shot by Dick Percell. The shooting occurred in one of the numerous dives in
that typical American mining town
known as the "Lions' Den," and was
the outgrowth of a "Josh." It appears
that Percell and a number of others
were congregated ip the above named
resort and were having a good time
drinking and carousing, when Genders
commenced to josh him about Mrs.
Church, a running mate of I'stcell's,
which so enraged him that he pulled
his gun and fired, the ball taking effect
in VVynn's privates inflicting a painful,
if not serious wound.
Pecell and Mrs. Church run the Miners' Home at Nelson, Wash, about a
year ago. And it will be remembered
that it was during their admisistratioi
that liilly Sands was robbed of his gold
watch and chain and some $40 i\ money
whilo occupying a room in ihe. house.
At the time of the robbery PercAJI was
caught in the room, and was |)adly
beaten up by Sands, who claimed that
he was the party who committed the
robbery.
As far as we haye been able te Ie»\n
nq arrests have been made.

who combines the necessary gifts and

Jealous of .lack, lie haled scenes, uud
preferred to spend bis time where lie
would not be annoyed by them. After
some bitter lessons Jack's wife learned
lu keep within certain well-defined limbs. Willi her fresh bounty fulled, and
with the knowledge that she hns lust

ulong a weary life, lu which there is
neither pleasure lu the present nnr hope

iirountl my cozy room with a sense of

Then I took up my half-finished work
and knitted Industriously for awhile.
I wus making some socks for little Ted,
my young nephew. Who euuld tell the
proud joy, the Infinite tenderness and
luve which were lu tlie heart of Ted's
little mother? There was an answering thrill when I thought of her, nud
contrasted ber life wllh mine. How
closely she clasped tlie lillie fellow In
her arms, as if she would shield him
from nil the world! With what eagerness she watched for the lirst responsive look, tbe lirst pluiu word, and the
llrsi tottering step. And there was
even nn absurd fouduess in those tender mother eyes as she gazed uu lhe
milks of ber young son nnrl Imagined
them vastly superior to those exhibited
by nuy other Infant In lhe wide world.
Ted was uot a commonplace, everyday
hiiby, nut he. Ills wordless babblings
were full nf wisdom, only we poor ordinary mortals could not understand
lhe inysleriiiiis language ill which they
were ullered.

The French Government finding It-
self unable to luerense the taxation,
which is heavier per capita In France I
than In nny other country of the world,
has decided to resort to the conversion I
of ils treasury bonds or rentes from :s j
per cent, to 2'/, us the easiest, and, In- j
deed, the only available moans of In- |
creasing the revenues of the state.  The
ground Is taken thai as the national
credit Is such that the Government hns j
recently been able to secure temporary
loans al !4 per cent., the liitereBt charge
on treasury bunds Is tar too high, and
that a  conversion scheme would re- j
spund lo the present stato of France's i
national credit.  Thru the latter should
sliinil 80 high Is surprising, when It Is '
remembered that, although in the lasi .

Director uf tlie Mini Preston says Unit
lie thinks ex-Governor Grant's estimate
ul' i$20,000,000 as the gold production of
Colorado is closer than Mr. Puckett's figures ef $22,000,000. "1 believe Hint tlie
total product of the country will reach
nbout $01,000,000," he added. "1 know!
that the estimate of Rothwell of the Eu-'
glneerlng and Mining .lournal is $57,000,-

Alaska product un the theory that it nil
euntes from across the international

resented by the product uf the locations

lliu. Seven on (lie luerense.
The Barker hoys, Dave and .Tenks,
principal stockholders in the Big Seven,
nenr Ncihurt, Mont., have decided to work
thnt well known rich propeity on a
somewhat larger scale aud heavily increase its output. In consequence they
have now a force of 23 men nt work, all
they have accommodations fur just at
present. Later on they expect to put on
a few more, as soon us room ls made for
thorii, The Big Seven is a high-grade sil- ]
ver mine and the ore carries no Inconsid-
crable amount of gold. For that reason
the price of silver does not cut so much
figure. It is ono of the most desirable i
properties in the camp; so desirable, in
fact, that several parties have obtained
options on it. but to dale no deal has been
effected.
Smelter Returns,
The smelter returns from the five-ton

property has been stocked by the Slocan
City   Mining Company,   of which   Hon. |
Hugh Sutherland is president and F. S.'
Andrews secretary.   Mr. Sutherland is in
England raising funds for the further de-
vclupinont of the propirly.   The carload
of ore from the Republic mine, near Slocan City, which was shipped to tlie Nel- i
snn smelter a short time ago, averaged ;
2lir> ounces in silver nnd $18 in gold to the

To all women who am ill:
It affords .ue greut plcasv.ro to tell
you of the benefit I have derived from
taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vcgelahle
Compound. J. cun hardly find words to
express my gratitude for the boon given
to suffering women in tbat excellent
remedy.
Before taking the
Compound
I was thin,
sallow, and
nervous. I
was troubled with
leueor-
rhoea, and
my menstrual periods were very
irregular. I tried three physicians and
gradually grew worse. About a year
ago I was udvised by a friend to try
Mrs. Pinkham's Sanative Wash and
Vegetable Compound, whieh I did.
After using three bottles of the Vegetable Compound nud one package of
Sanative Wash, I am now enjoying better health than I ever did, and attribute the Bame to Mrs. Pinkham's wonderful remedies. I cannot find words
to express what a Oodsend they have
been to me.

There an', ll Is estimated, HtKUliR)
mile* of highway roads I" the Unit ml
States, about 20 pet" cent, of the roads
of all rhe world, Urea. Britain Urs12Q,;
(MHt miles of roadways, and these are
some of the best in the world. Germany
lias 27'),000 miles of roads, and some of
them are ns poor as the roadways of
a great country ean bo. France, which
lias taken an enlightened view of the
good roads question for many years,
and has spoilt by governmental or local
authority more than $1,000,000,000 on
highways, lias a road mileage of 330,-
000, more Mian uny oilier country. Itu.s-
sia, with an enormous area, has only
70,000 miles oi nmdways. while Italy,
a smaller country, has 55,000.
I-'or a considerable time the agitation
in the United States for good roads lan-
iruisiied for thf reason, perhaps, that
by the American system of subdivided
local authority, "what's everybody's
business is nobody's business," and,
controversies being frequent as to the
liability of. a national, state or municipal authority for needful expenditures,
very little was done. The National
League for Good Roads was organized
ln 1S02 "to awaken general interest In
the Improvement of public roads, to determine tlie best methods of building
and maintaining thein and conduct and
foster such publications as may serve
these purposes." At the beginning of
tlie agitation, the good roads question
did not make much headway, aud It
was not until the popularity of bicycling grew that the demand for improved roads became organized, and
since tliat considerable headway has
beeu made. A computation advocating
of good roads is this: There are approximately, though the number Is on the
decline steadily, 14,000,000 horses In
the United Stales (there were 15,000.-
000 by the rensus of ISOO), and there
are about 2,000,000 mules, principally
in the South, the annual cost of fodder
for these animals being $1,500,000,000.
On fine stone roads oue horse ean haul
as much as three horses ean haul over
the average dirt road of this country.
It Is estimated that it would be necessary to build about 1,000,000 miles of
macadamized roads in tlie United
States in order to have as good a system of public highways as Is found In
several European states. At $4,000 a
mile this would involve an outlay of
$4,000,000,000, a pretty large sum. But
If one-half of the draft animals could
be dispensed with by the building of
sueh roads, there would be an annual
saving of $700,000,000 in the food bill.
Cotiseqiienlly, if road bonds were Issued bearing '•*> per cent. Interest, t>,000,-
000 miles of macadamized road could
bo built without Increasing the annual
expenses one dollar.—New York Sun,
