An  agreement between Mr. Nicholls  and the city, whereby Mr. Nicholls  agreed to indemnify the city for any  sxpense to which it might be put,'  was read, approved and- ordered  registered.

( Continued on. rage 8.)  $1.00 PER YEAB  BUBflStt  AT MAPLE LEAF  Visitor to the Property Says  the Recent Strike Is a  Wonder  City Clerk John A. Hutton visited  Franklin camp last Sunday. Mr.  Hutton brought back with him  some fine samplei of native copper  from the recent strike made near  the surface on the Maple Leaf 'claim,  which is now being worked by Herbert Young, and Ab Fee. Mr. Hutton states that apparently there is  a whole mountain of this class of  ore, and that the strike is the biggest  thing he-.has ever seen in a mining  camp.   .  Seven men are now employed at  the Maple Leaf mine. Three or four  thousand tons of ore are now piled  up on the dump, and the ground is  being cleared for the installation of  a blast furnace, which will treat the  ore by a new process, very little  coke being required. If this process  proves a success, some lively times  may be looked for in the camp in  the near future.  Miss Esther Huddard, aged Ti  years, who was employed as waitress at James West's restaurant in  this city for a few months last summer, was drowned near Princeton  on Monday. In company with ne.r  sister, Mrs. A. L. Bass, of Princeton, and Miss Marguerite Eichel-  berger, of Republic, she went bathing in Martin's lake, about a mile  from East Princeton. Miss Hud  dard and Miss Eichelberger got beyond their depth and were drowned.  In their struggles for life they  clutched Mrs. Bass, who had hold  of a log, and almost carried her  down with them, but by almost  superhuman efforts she ��������� out of the  water and ran a mile to inform her  husband of the tragedy, and then  she collapsed. As soon as possible  he.'accompanied by his workmen,  rushed to the lake, and took tho  bodies out of the water. Medical aid  was procured from Princeton, and a  pulomotor from Copper mountain,  but too much time had elapsed and  the strenuous efforts of the physicians, aided by the machine, were  all in vain.  The remains of Miss Huddard  were shipped lo this city for burial,  and the fuueral was held from Holy  Trinity church today. The embalmed body of Miss Eichelberger  was sent to Republic for interment.  Two of Miss Huddard's sisters  live in this city, and another at  Coalmont.

FRIDAY, JULY 13, 10i;  A letter from the adjutant general of the Canadian  militia states that a-general tendency exists on the part  of the public to voice all complaints regarding casualties, pay, separation allowance, assigned pay, etc.,  through the press, before any. attempt has been made  to have the facts of individual cases brought to the attention of district headquarters for investigation.

'  An editor in Buenos Ayres puts it in this striking  fashion: "The eagles that look toward the stars are  crossing the Atlantic, bearing the ideals of all America,  to battle with the eagles that look ever downward,  seeking prey."  A little test mill of the Canada Copper company at  Copper mountain is making a carload of concentrates  weekly.  The Great Northern railway now runs a daily train  between Princeton and Oroville.

If the weather man can not commandeer a copious  rainfall for this district within the next forty eight  hours, there is grave danger that he may be lynched  on his next visit to this city.  Of Joseph H. Choate, the great lawyer, widely known  as "the first citizen of New York," anecdotes will continue to be told through years to come; but it is doubtful whether any of them will live longer than his witty  and graceful tribute to his wife. "If you could not be  yourself, who would you prefer to be?" some one asked  him. Instantly came the reply, "Mrs. Choate's second  husband!"

The price of The Sun is still the same as it  was before the war. Our subscribers should  bear this fact in mind and pay their subscriptions promptly. If we had all the money due  us by delinquent subscribers we would be  quite wealthy.  You can reach more readers in the Kettle  valley by using The Sun's advertising columns  than through any other.medium published in  the Boundary district.  In spite of the increased cost of material  and paper, The Sun job office is still turning  out high-grade printing at the prices that prevailed before the war.  This conversation was overheard on a street corner  recently: "Well, what are you doing for your country?  Gone into the Home Guard?" "No; they would take  me on account of my eyes." "Planting a garden?"  "No; haven't any land that's fit to plant. I'm going  to pay my war tax without kicking. The association  wanted me to go in with them on a protest, but I refused." Is not that a pretty good kind of patriotism,  too?  The Sun, at $1.00 per year, gives its readers  three times more reading matter than any  other Boundary paper.

Drysdale, chief of a Dominion government geological survey party, was drowned yesterday  in the Koolenay river, near Cross river, when a raft on  which he was crossing the stream upset. Mr. Drysdale  was well known in this city. Some years ago he made  a geological survey of Franklin camp, and got out the  best map and the most comprehensive report of the  district that have yet been published.  James Clark, of the firm of T. Gulley & Co., Greenwood, was a visitor in the city this week.  Lin AdamB, machinist of the Granby company at  Phoenix, came down to Grand Forks on Wednesday to  get warmed up.  Mrs. James Roberts, of Denoro, visited Grand Forks  yesterday.  W.
