SECOND   YEAR.-NO.   (57.
Geo.  McL.  Brown   Visits
Grand Forks.
Mr. Brown Thinlu That ThiB Bsotioo
Has Eeaoliod a Stags of Development to Assure
a Railroad.
<ieo. MeXi Brown, executive agent of
the Canadiun I'acifij Bail way, with
headquarters, at Vancouver. 13. 0 , was
an arrival in the Forks last Saturday
having come from Peffticton via private
conveyance, Mr. Brown tor a number
of years held the position ot general
passenger agent ot the 0.P. K. but
last winter was promoted to tho position he now occupies.
The exact object of Mr. Brown's visit
to this section is not known b--yond tl.e
fact that he was looking after the interest
of the 0. P. R. and lo make inquiry relative to tho boycott recently established by the Boundary Crejk merchants
against the C. P. R.
In answer to a query from a representative of the Miner as to tho probabilities of tho 0. V, li. constructing a
branch line in to this section in the
near future, lo3 stated that he was not
in a position to know just what the in-
tintious ot his peoplo were in regard lo
this matter, but that thay had the question now under consideration and
would doubtless move iu t.iat direction
ub soon as they were satisfied that suf•
tieent tonagc oould bo secured to justify
the expenditure of such a largo sum of j
money as the construction ot a road
through this district would entail.
As to the probabilities of tne early
construction of tho projected road bo-
tween.Penticton and Boundary creek
lie Baid: 'There is no question but
that this piece of road will be built but
just when, I;am unable to stuto. The
people of the coast towns as well us thi
government fully realize the in p0r.
tanco of its construction at once ami
are bringing every possible intluenco to
bear upou the powers at Ottawa to enlist their aid and co-operation in its
Mr. Brown Epenlnomo time in interviewing the merchants of the city aud
those interested iu mining properties in
this vicinity regarding the am mat of
freight that had been shipped into
this section this year, aud securiug es
timatea ot the probable ore tonage that
could be secured in the ovent of a railway connection being secured. After
securing all the data available upon
such a short notice he left for Pentieton
Sunday afternoon expecting t o Btop at
the various towns and mining camps between this city and that place.
Iu speaking of the rapid progress
this district had made within Uu past
eighteen months he Baid that it was beyond his expectations and expressed
the opinion that tbe country had reached tbat point where it was almost an
impossibility to keep a railway from
building through it much longer. Mr.
Brown expects to return to this section
within the next few weeks when he will
have more time to examio** into its resources and secure data relative to ton-
age etc. necessary to encourage the construction of i* railway.
A   Victoria  Man  Who   Ha*?   Great
Faith in Grand Forks.
The well known real estate man, B
IS.. Johnson, of Victoria, owner of
the celebrated Johnson ranch about
one and a half miles below town was an
arr ival in tho city from tho coait this
w iek. Th? .main object of his visit is
to lo ik after his extensiva interaata in
thij section. Ot all tho enthu iastic
persons concerning the future of this
section and Grand ForkB in particular,
Mr. Johnson is the most sanguine that
a Minkr representative has yet come in
contact with. Ho has moie faith in
Grand Forks making a city than Ii. A.
Brown has of the Volcanic making the
biggest gold producing mine iu the
ln epeaking of the general outlook
for* thia Bection Mr. Johnson aaid:
"Taere will nevor be a better tinn in
the history of Grand Forks for a person to invest than at present, Tho delay in railway matters has naturally depreciated the valuo of real estate, but
when once the railway heads this way
the price will advance more rapidly than
it has fallen, and now is the time for
people lo invest in city property and
get in on tha ground floor.
'•The time has arrived when the
growth of the country ha? attained the
p >int that tho building of a railroad
cannot be put oil much longer and ho
felt safe in predicting that work ou one
woul I be started much bc'oro anyone
lhe (irand Forks distiict was well
spoken of by the people of the coast
und all along tho salt water, and tho
citizens of Victoria aud Vancouver were
most anxious to have tha Victoria, Vancouver & Eastern railway the first oae
to enter tlie Kettle Rivor and Boundary
Creek districts."
Mr. Johnson expects to return home
about tlie tirst of tha weok aud hop.'s to
Lo ablo to mako his next visit here on

Should Be naJaa Dsputy.
The question has been frequently
asked of late why S. R. Almond, mining recorder of this district has not been
appointed a douuty register of this
county court, the same as the mining
recorder at Midway. Wa must confess
that at present the problem is to.) hard
for us to solve, but wo do know that it
such was the case it would do away
with a great ileal of annoyance that is
boing exparienced by those of our citizens who have an occasion to commence any civil law ca-ii. At present
it is often tho case in applying for a
garniBhoo summous b.'fore tho blue
papers can bo received from Midway
the person ha3 left the country or tbo
monoy pail over. Mr. Aim ind is in
every way quaUliod to perform tha
dutius of the o!H*: of register of the
cjuuty court and the immediate ap-
pointmentof that gentleman wouiel be
welcomed by the citizens nt this district.

The Trouiu.es op a Younj Coui-xe

The other day a young couple arrive 1
iu Grand Forks for tha por pose oj bo-
i2g joined in the holy bonds of matrimony. On teaching this city thay found
that there was no ono hare who was
empowered to issuo a marriago license,
aud tha nauiest oltluiai, who was vested
with that authority resided at Midway,
and while that enterprising town couid
provide the license it had no minister
to perform tho marriage ceremony. So
accordingly tho would be groom cached

24 miles to Midway, procured the license aud returned to this city to have

The following from the last issuo of
tho Kamloops Inland Sentinel will be
read with interest by the citizens of
Grand Forks and goes to show the
strides this place is making in the direction of becoming the metropolis of the
Kettle river valley:
"It is said that the Bast Riding of
Yale is to be divided and lhat Grand
Forks will be the official headquarters
of the southern division. Tho name of
J. A. Mara, ex-M. P., is mentioned in
connection with this new  constituency.
For tho northern division if the Etta*

No Signs of Hard Times Along the
Kettle Kiveh.
Notwithstanding that a general do*
pression ot business prevails in almost
every section ot tho northwest and the
cry of hard-times is haard on all sidos a
steady improvement is noticable in almost every to,vn of tha Boundary
Creek and Kettle River districts, and
the owners of properties in anyot tho
new towns really have no serious reason for complaint. There is hardly a
day passes but some lucky prospector
returns from the hills, bringing tho
news of a lucky find that himself or
some of his comrades havo mado, all ot
which goes to prove that the country
has not bean thoroughly prospocted,
and there is no other section t id ty tint
offers a better Held for a prospector
than the North Fork of the Kettle
river and the north half of the Colvillo
reservation. 'Ihe fact that some of tho
best locations ot this upper country
have been made this spring, and that
after it had been pretty generally con-
Bide red that everything worth staking
had been taken, goea to prove this assertion.
Too Good to be True.
R. A. Brown has received a letter from
Mr. Treat, secretary of the Olive Gold
Mining Company, in which he states
that a meeting of the company wi'l bo
held at the Hotel Spokane, Sept. 15, at
which time an endeavor would be irado
lo sttaighton out the affairs of tha company, pay up all its indebtedness and
get things in good shape. A full attendance of the members ot tho company
is requested.

government for money was gteai and eame from
every part of the province. It was right 10
censure when ceusiire wus due, but credit
should also be given when it was due.
Ilelore elosiug Mr. Johnson culled thc attention of the chief commissioner to ihe immediate
need of iwo nridg, s across lhe main Kettlo river.
Fur lhe construction of une the municipality

Volunteer Steamships Built by Private Subscription.
Enfrngett   la   Ccrmm-erctal    fan-alts    Jim
Intended for War Fi?rpow,>» in the
Event oflntf-ru-stiooj-.l tiL.-
The origin of this peculiar organization is interesting. In the hist war between Russia and Turkey the former's
navy was recognized to be weak, aud
some patriotic subjects of the czar resolved to create hy private eil'ort a
force of auxiliary ormificrs that might
be useful in case, a naval power shoulc.
intervene on thc side of Turkey, Subscriptions were started in the chief
towns, aud in, a few months about
2,000,000 roubles were collected. With
these the Alsat.ia, the Lotharingia, and
two other steamers belonging to Ine
North German Lloyds were purchased
Not very long afterward peace was
concluded, so that the work of the four
vessels proved to have consisted! chiefly of convoying the sick andi the wounded and transporting troops- from San
Stefano lo the Black sea ports.
In casting about for a new sphere of
duty for tlie volunteer fleet, it was decided to ha.ve Wi'-m ply between Russia's European ports and Vladivostoek.
But the first operations of the lieet
as a commercial venture were not
encouraging. There were no profits, and there was talk of turning* them
over to the Black sea trade. However,
the direction of them was transferred
to the minister of marine, and presently an era of prosperity for the fleet
began. The numbers increased, and
no'tv the fleet is managed by a committee representing tlie treasury, war.
r.avy and audit offices, the president,
who is generally a.n admiral, being selected by the minister of marine. The
eihicf executive officer is known as the
inspector, and the present incumbent
of the ofiice. is Col. Linden, who for a
king time had been ar naval attache in
England, representing* the Russian government.
At present the volunteer fleet possesses 13 large steamers, each eapable
cf carrying from 3,000 to 5,000 tons of
cargo, exclusive of bunker coal. They
are the Kherson, Petersburg, S'.iratoff,
Orel, Vladimir, VproaeJ, Kiavr Eliot er-
JnosTav, Tambov, Yarosiaval, Kostrcwna.
Nijni-Novgorod and Khabarovsk. The
first four can make 10 knots and the
others 13 knots. All of them have been
built in England, where also two o'.iher
vessels nre to be constructed. The original, acquired' in Gei-Hiany, have been
given upand turned over to the admiralty as training ships.-
Odessa is the principal port from
which the steamers of the fleet start.
They pass through the Suez canal, and
reach Vladivoatoclc in abont 40 days.
On the way they call at Port. Said,
Perim, or Aden, Colombo, Singapore
and Nagasaki as the principal ports.
Only ttvo or tihrc? years ago no more
than seven or eight voyages were ma-de
each year, but, under the present management, no fewer thani 22 voyage**
are carried! out within the year. Thus
Vladivostoek has increased in importance, and the volunteer fleet has rendered a great service in building up
the Asiatic shores of Russia. The fleet,
is also used in f rans-xirting materints
for the Siberian railway, and so adds
largely to its earnings, while being of
public service in that way. It also carries out iaumferants and convicts, the
latter being sent out to the island of
Saghalicm not far from Vladivostosk.
It takes back to Odessa soldiers whose
terms have expired; tear,from Hankow,
the tea trade being entirely in its hands,
and r.o less than 35,000 tons being carried last year; copra, castor seeds and
ether produce.
It is also worthy of note that "the
freezing of Vtatfivostoek harbor is not
now an insuperable obstacle in thepass-
ing of ships. Last winter vessels entered the port even when the frozen
surface had reached a thickness of V2
inches. A cajval through the ice four
miles long was cut out by sawing, the
huge frozen masses being crushed or
towed away by* the government vessel
Siloch. The operations were successful, but. in; order lo (To the work still
more efficiently in future, an ice breaker Is beingcouBtructecT at Copenhagen."
Altogether, Engineering conclude*
that, a.U hough the volunteer fleet stilt
has at Odessa, guns ready to be mounted for war purposes, yet its .chief functions are commercial, and that the
miihling up of Asiatic Rnssiamay help
liritish manufacturers*. In any event,
so lougas.ri.il the ships of ihe. fleet come
from English yards, the latter cannot
tomplaiu.—London Engineering.

never seen. Under thc consular regulations she was forced to return toller home, foregoing her education, to
marry this man. MiasHartford, one of
the principal worUers.in the Poo-Chow
mission, who was here on a, visit, accompanied her on her return.
On the same ship with them was Ll
Hun Chang and his suite. The viceroy
noticed the Chinese girl, ami sent his
secretary,  Lord LI, to. Inquire abom
her. A day cr two later he sent word
he would like to talk with Marguerite
and Miss* Hartfur-il. They went to see
him aud told him the story of the girl's
attempt to obtain, an education. The
viceroy was much pleased with his
countrywoman and seemed to take a
great interest ia her. He told her and
Miss Hartford aPiout lhe woman's congress, which is lo lie held in London
in 1808, and said that, he wanted the
women of China ta be represented at
the congress.
After a little talk he told Marguerite
that he would appoint her to represent
China and its women at the congress.
Hi* then asked Hiss. Hartford if she did
not know uf sonic other woman in
China that was i-u»fi£ied to be a delegate to the congress. Miss Hartford
at once recommended! to him Dr. Hi;
King Eng, tin; flrst Chinese woman to
study medicine. Some years ago sin-
left China to come tu America, and
after a course In the woman's medical
school at Philadelphia she received her
degree. Ghe then returned to China
and became one at the most valuable
member:! of the Fao Chow mission,
where she now is. li II ang Chang waa
much interested ire the story and after
a few questions ssuii that she. should be
appointed aa the second woman to attend thc congress*. So China will be
represented at the woman's eongress
and by two Christian women. After
the viceroy's arrival in China he made
the appointment in s formal manner.

a* western paper tells. This doctor had

Thereupon the cowboy sat down,
wrote, a brief letter, sealed it up,, and
addressed the envelope to—let us say—

ioctor, that gcatleuuui looked at the

Antlieptio (Juulitlcs in Coin**.
It is a well-known fact that paipeir
money is liable to transfer bacteria
from one peisou to another, and thus
losprendeontagioti&dlseases. It is also
supposed that coins, which are more fn
circulation than notes, might similarly act as agents for spreading disease,
aud investigations in that direction
were made at the Vienna university
when Austria changed its currency to
the gold basis. A report about, his observations was recently published by
Dr. Vincent in. the Vienna Medical Gazette, in whieh he .states that metals
act, so to speak, as antiseptics in regard
to bacteria,, or mierobes, the fact being
tbat these in iscroscupie* organisms have
but a very short lease of life while ou
metals. The destroyrog influences of
metals increase with their temperature,
and also with the- close touch of the
micro-organisms with the metal. At a
temperature uf UU to 10il*legiees Fahrenheit, which is common In the pockets
where money is carried, the destruction
of microbes occurs within three hours.
The various metals itcd for coins are
somewhat different in this respect, silver being the m-ast antiseptic and gold
thc least. C*>pper and bronze hold'
a bout the m idd le between the two more
precious metals. — St. Louis Globe—
