They are receiving  the congratulations of their numerous friends.  Capitalists Are Attracted by  Reports of the Rich Ore  in the Union  A meeting nf the industrial com  mittee of the board oftnde was held  in the rooms of the board Monday  night for the purpose of discussing  tbe inadequate transportation facilities to Franklin which at present  hamper the development of the  camp, and to formulate for submission to the board some measure  that will remedy the evil.  E. Miller. M.P.P. for Grand  Forks, who returned to the city  *rom Victoria Monday afternoon,  was the principal speaker before the  committee.'  Mr,   Miller   stated  that   the new  railway act in no wise  lessened  the  obligation of the Kettle Valley company to extend its line to   Franklin.  On   the   contrary, he considered it  even.- more   more, binding than the  old agreement.   He had unbounded  faith in the camp, and had induced  the government to promise to  send  a   commission  there as soon as the  weather permitted to  make a  thorough examination of the properties  and transportation   conditions,  and  to report to   the  government. ..The  government's  action  in   compelling  the constrnction of the  road   would  be   largely  guided   by that report..  He adviced all owners of mining  or other  property  iu   Franklin, as  -well as those at   other'points along  the proposed railroad, to gather   all  the  data   possible     regarding   the  probable  tonnage  they  might supply   the   road, to   what stage their  properties had been  developed, and  all other   information   that   might  influence   the   construction   of the  road, in order that   the commission  could be furnished with  reliable information.   He vvas of  the  opinion  fiat the board of  trade  could   render valuable   assistance in securing  this data.  Mr. Miller also informed the committee that a party of mining men  and capitalists would visit Franklin  in the course of a month or two,  and be adviced tbe board of trade  to be ready to show them the camp  and to furnish them with all the information they might desire!  The meeting expressed thanks for  the information furnished by Mr.  Miller, and then adjourned.  Judgment Reserved  The county court was in session  in the court house on Tuesday,  Wednesday and Thursday, his  honor Judge Brown presiding. Two  important cases���������������������������Kiskoin vs. Granby and Aliment vs. Granby���������occu  pied all the time. These were  workmen's compensation cases,  brought on behalf of relatives living  in Austria and Italy. Kiskoin was  injured in the Granby smeiter in  this city, and died in the hospital  in December, 1909 Aliment was  killed in the Granby mine at Pboe  nix. Judgment was reserved in  both bases. Alexander MaeNeil, of  Fernie, appeared for the plaintiffs,  and E. Miller for defendant.  YlTHECnYBEMniFUL  The Plant at Hidden Creek  Was "Blown-In" Last  Monday  E>. S.

New  publications are  continually   being  received,    and   the     board    hopes  shortly to receive maps of   the city,  the   valley,   the   North   Fork,   the  main Kettle river, the  riding   and  of the province,   and   also from the  department   of   mines,   Ottawa, all  the geological  information   relating  ! to this district.  F. M. Sylvester, the m swinger, received word tn Vancouver on Tuesday th*������t the first fires which will  melt the ore of the property of the  Granby interest, at Goose bay, where  for months the 2000-ton smelter has  been building, were started Monday,  and all was running in good order  in preparation for the continuous  smelting of the wonderfully valuable body of copper ore known as the  Hidden cree    property.  Mr. Sylvestf-r announced that the  company will employ on the start  some 400 men to . run the smelter  and a similar number in the mine.  Granby, as the company's holdings in this district are known, has  been the busiest spot on the north  coast for several months, a force of  men at times exceeding a thousand  having been at work on the smelter,  building ore bins, wharves, store  buildings, and a typical mining  town. While this work has : been  done, mining operations were progressing steadily on the great body  of copper in the Hidden creek group  and each report received in Vancouver was more encouraging than  the last. It has been reported,  though not officially, that there is  ore enough blocked out in the mine  to keep the smelter going for twenty  years.  The Hidden creek property had a  varying career for some years before  it finally attracted the engineers of  the Granby company, which owns  the smelter at Grand Forks. A  thorough examination of the copper  bodies was made with diamond  drills, and their depth determined  beyond doubt. Since starting the  undertaking more than a year ago,  tbe company has spent an enormous  sum of   money,    not   only   on the  R. S. Lennie, of Vancouver, acting as special judge .of the court of  revision under an order-in-council,  reserved decision in the^ case of  Crown vs. Henize. The point at  issue was whather the province of  British Columbia has any right to  tax F. A. lienize on 307,S00 acres  of land iu Kootenay and Boundary.  A Scheme Intended to Increase Flower Gardens  and Lawns  In past years The Sun has been  an ardent advocate of the city council offering prizes for the best kept  lawns and the prettiest flower gardens, because it has realized that  such a move would furnish tbe  citizens with ah incentive for beautifying' their homes, and thus add  greatly to the  atUactiveness  of  the  The land represents half of the origi-! city, which would prove a valuable  rial subsidy to the Columbia & West- j asset from an advertising viewpoint,  ern railway. .

C. R. Hamilton, K.C., appeared  for Mr. Heinze and H. A. Maclean,  of  Victoria, for tbe crown.  Philatheans Enjoy an Evening  There was a  good   attendance  of  guests of the Young   Ladies' Phila-  thea   Bible   class   in   the    Baptist  church Thursday evening.    A   well  rendered program of  vocal and   instrumental   music   was     provided,  wi?b a brief address, appropriate   to  the   approaching   Eastertide,    with  colored   lantern     views   on * "The  Christ, the Cross, and   the   Crown."  VV. E. Chandler  presided, giving   a  model   chairman's   address of   just  one miuute and a  quarter.    A.    S.  Matheson, leader of   the   class,   on  behalf of   the young ladies, warmly  thanked all assisting in the  evening  for their excelient program.  A brief  social time with rrfreshments,served  by the clnss, closed   a   most enji>y  "The  Christian   Athlete"   is  the  subject   for   Sunday  evening's ser  smelter property and the mine, but  on dams and harbor improvements.  Goose bay, as the point was  known before it became Granby, is  an arm of Portland canal. The valuable copper claims in the district  have gone up considerably since the  smelter neared completion. The  Granby   company   is   reported    to  1 able evening. .  The Philatheans���������which means  [lovers of God���������belong to a movement founded a score of years ago  and now numbering many thousands  of young women at work with and  for young women.  The program was as follows:  Church choir selections, "Victory  Through Grace," "Evening Praise,"  apparent to most people that the  council will not be in a financial  position to act on our suggestion.  We have therefore formulated another plan.  Let four sweepstake prizes be offered for the best kept lawns and  the prettiest flower gardens���������first ���������  and second prizes for lawns and  first and second prizes for flower  gardens. The conditions of this  competition should be:  ��������� 1. Any. person may enter the contest.  2. Entry fee 61. Every cent collected in entry fees will be paid  out in prize money.  3. The money to be divided into  four prizes���������first and second for  best lawn, and first and second for  best effect in flower gardening.  4. Sweepstake receipts to bs  allotted in two first prizes of 30 per  cent each, and two second prizes of  20 per cent each.  5. Entries to close June 1.  6. Judging will take place August 1.

Address ull communications to  Thb Gband Forks Sun,  ���������'HON B   ft 74 GKA.ND FOKKS, B.C  FRIDAY, MARCH 20,  1914  The lack of adequate transportation facilities to Franklin  is a serious problem in the development of that camp.   For  railway  connection    between  this city and .the camp there is  no prosjpet with the next year  oi-two.    Even  if the Kettle  Valley line were to eommence  construction  work at  Lynch  creek   tomorrow,'   it    would  probably be a year before the  road  could  be / completed, to  Franklin.    And -we all  know  that the Kettle  Valley' company has no intention of.starting work on the  North Fork  extension in the  near future.  But if we. can not get railway  connection   with   the   camp,  why  not  look, around  for a  reasonably   efficient    substitute?    A  substantial   appropriation for road  work  and  bridges in  the    district  was  made at the late session.   The  roads and bridges in the  valley  are in  fairly good condition���������no   one   will   suffer if  work is suspended until next  year.    Then why not put the  bulk   of   that   grant   on the  wagon road and  bridges  between    Lynch     creek    and  Franklin? That amount should  be sufficient +o put the road  in   condition   so   that    auto  trucks could be  run between  the two points.    The  owners  of the Union mine  have signified their intention   of putting on/these vehicles for the  transportation  of ore if the  government will furnish the  road.    With a string of these  trucks engaged in ore hauling  tlie    transportation    charges  would be  materially reduced  and the shipments greatly increased.  On their return trip  these cars could haul in  supplies for the men at  work  in  the camp.  A daily auto stage  might     also      be    operated  between this city and   Franklin.  I will be given serious consider-  jation by our citizens.  i ���������    ������������������  I!   There-appears to be imminent danger of war in  Ulster]  . over the home rule bill.

D, MORRISON  JEWELH1R-OPTICIAN  GRAND FORKS,"B.C.  Everybody appears to be  agreed that there will be' a  grand revived in mining activities in Brit'ish Columbia  during, the coming summer.  Franklin camp should receive  its share of the rush.  A number of municipalities  have already set aside civic  house-cleaning days. It is a  good example to follow. Clean  back yards and alleys save  many doctor's bills.  The Doukhobors at Brilliant say they are in earnest  about that spectacular parade,  and that it will take place  when the* attorney general attempts to enforce the law.  This sounds something like a  defy to Mr. Bowser.  The man who has no other  claim to distinction than an  inherited title is poor indeed.  It is  absolutely meaningless.  has been unable to engage a  caddie up to the present time,  and has thus been cheated  out of much enjoyment.  The editor has the advantage of other bachelors.

Premier McBride has shown  great interest in the American  scheme, and railways never apply  to Victoria for aid in .vain.���������Vancouver Sun.   '  W. O.

In the first place to prevent spores of fungi within the plant cells entering other parts of the plant.  Secondly to kill fungi born upon the surface of the plant tissues.  Then again to kill biting and sucking insects either by contact, poison or  suffocation.  Indsrectly to check the spread of the Fire Blight by doing away with  the larvae Aphids, adult Ants, Bees and Wasps, and the forms of any other  insects most easily killed. -  Finally, it is a splendid spring tonic for the trees, given even, that nothing (funguous, insect or bacterium) affects the tree.       -  When?

Stir constantly  ���������a hoe is convenient for the purpose���������keeping the sediment in suspension  and aiding all the sulphur to go into solution. When boiling is completed  ponr off the clear solution into a barrel. This solution is the stock solution  which may be diluted at will.  For the winter wash dilute one part with about six parts of water,  or if a hydrometer is used dilute until the specific gravity or reading thereon  1.032 or 1.030. For the summer washes dilute one part with from 20 to 25  parts of water, until the hydrometer reading is from 1.009 to L003.fi Growers can reduce the cost of spraying considerably by clubbing together and  making this concentrated wash at a central point.
