V. Garrett,1 C. A. Coffin and  (.associates, of Spokane, have organized the Enterprise Mining, Development and Pow������r company, with a  capital of $250,000, to take over the  title of a group of claims located between Grand Forks, and Roesland,  on which, they report, a gold strike  of importance has just been made.  A working force of four men is  now engaged in taking out from the  claims a quantity of the richer ore  for immediate shipment.  "I located the claims originally in  1896," says Dr. Coffin, who visited  the camp last week, "and have held  them ever since. The Canadian government built a wagon road six  i^v miles from Pauison to Norway and  Grinville mountains, furnishing  transportation. ��������� ;.  r  "Last week.while at the property,  we did a little more work in the old  .-exposure and uncovered a 3-foot  vein of ore carrying along one side  ...of. it. a stringer running.from an,  ioch to three inches wide which carried visible gold in large quantities.  The assay over the 3 foot vein gives  us average values of $28.64 to the  ton, while small samples of tbe gouge  along the side have given Mr. Garrett assay values of $12,775 to the  ton.  "The values are in decomposed  hematite iron, showing on the. top,  sides and bottom of a tunnel that is  in 300 feet on the vein, and -has a  depth of 125 feet. We were encouraged to do the work because the Inland mine adjoining struck a high-  grade deposit upon the same vein.  We shall start shipping immediately."  METEOROLOGICAL  V  ���������*  W. M. DeCew and B. Lequime  have purchased the sawmill on Smel  ter lake from the. Western Pine Lumber company. The mill is now  being dismantled. A portion of the  machinery has been" disposed of to  outside parties, and the balance will  be removed to Lynch creek and operated as a mill there, provided satisfactory freight rates can be obtained from the Kettle Valley  line.  In Spite of Moist-Weather  the Firemen Garry Out  Their Program  Last Saturday's casuaiiy list contained the name of Wilson Fleming as having been killed in action.  Mr. Fleming left Grand Forks- with  the 54th battalion. Prior to enlisting he was employed at the Granby  smelter, and he was prominent in labor union circles and very popular  among his friends^ He was a single  man and about twenty-five years of  age. A brother of his lives in this  city, where deceased owned some  residential property, but his parents  reside in Boston, Mass.  Col. R.'T. Lowery. of the Greenwood Ledge, was in the city on Saturday. Mr. Lowery recently returned to Greenwood- from "San  Diego, Cal., where he spent the past  winter for."the benefit of his health.  While in the south, he crossed the  Mexican line and.visited.Tia J.uana,  the Monte Carlo of the North  American continent. Mr. Lowery  said it was very interesting to see  the huge staeks of bright Mexican  silver dollars, but as he had never  acquired a craving for any game of  chance, the place had no other  fascination for him.  . In spite of damp weather yesterday, the patriotic celebration of the  Grand Forks volunteer fire department was. a satistrctory success.  While the rain was uadoubtedly responsible for cutting down the number of out-of town yisitorsto a considerable degree, the people of the  city and valley availed themselves of  the opportunity to enjoy a day of  good sports, at the same time showing their appreciation of the department and patriotic societies by their  patronage. From the financial viewpoint the result was all that could  be expected under the adverse climatic conditions prevailing, and the  committees in charge of the various  events have reason to feel proud of  the manner in which they were repaid for conscientious work.' The  program was carried out in^ its  entirety.  The children's sports on  and the purse was  divided between  'the twq clubs.  The dance in the opera house in  the evening completed the celebration. It was largely attended, and  everybody had a good time..  Farris Attorney-General  J. W. DeB. Farris, member for  Vancouver, has been sworn in as  attorney-general of British Columbia. The by-election following his  appointment to the cabinet will occur about June 5. William D.

This fact appears to indicate that the smt-lter in this city  will soon resume operations.  Frank Latham left for New Westminster on Saturday to attend the  grand lodge meeting of the Knights  of Pythias as a delegate from the  local lodge.  In reply to a question by W. A.  Buchanan, of Medicine Hat, regarding the coal mine situation in  '"District No. 18, in the house of  commons Tuesday night, Hou. C.  W. Crothers, minister of labor, said  he expected that in the next forty-  eight hours work would be resumed  in the mines, but he did not think  it would be in the public interest to  tell the details by which he hoped  to secure a settlement of the difficulties between the miners and the  operators.  The Carson fruit packing house  was sold at auction last Saturday  for ������2150, the purchasers being the  Grand Forks Co-operative Growers'  association.  Marshal Joffre and ex-Premier  Viviani arrived in France Wednesday morning at th������ French headquarters.  Jimmy i Oliver, Greenwood's  youngest soldier, was killed in  action on the morning of the 9th of  April.  It is reported that Fred Ruasell  has aspirations to be known in history as the potato king of the Kettle  valley. *  Mrs. N. Taylor left on Saturday  for New Westminster, where she at3t  tended the grand lodge meeting this  week of the Pythian Sisters.

The   ".core   was tied  It has been announced from Ottawa that the government's conscription bill will be introduced on  Monday next. The terms of it  have not been decided upon, only  the general plan aB announced to  the house by the premier���������selective  conscription. The expectation is  that there will be a central commission at Gttawa, and under it there  will be committees at the varions  headquarters of the military districts. These will make the selective  drafts from the lists which will be  obtained by compulsory registration. The lists which are in the  possession of the director-general of  national- service may not be used,  as the signing of the cards was not  compulsory and were  not  attested.  On the basis of 100,000 menfto be  raised throughout the Dominion by  selective "conscription, the different  provinces would be called upon to  supply their proportion in a ratio  somewhat as follows:  Ontario t  35,500  Quebec.........  28,000  Saskatchewan,.......'     6,800  Nova Scotia     6,000  Manitoba........     6,300  British Columbia......     5,400  Alberta     5,100  New Brunswick....    4,900  Prince Edward Island     1.200  Actual tests of several "exceptionally promising" devices to solve  the submarine problem are being  made, the United States navy department announced on Wednesday. Two inventions have undergone preliminary tests and are now  being constructed on ^a larger scale  to be used on ships.  Models were used for the first  test. The department then constructed the devices on a larger  scale for more exhaustive tests. Department officials declare they are  confident one of the devices will  prove a "big thing," and say the  naval consulting board was greatly  encouraged. The devices with shields  for ships' hulls proved unsatisfactory.  The board is now considering sey-  eral inventions by Hudson Maxim,  and the navy officials have announced tbiati many other war inventions are being tested.  , It is, learned that Marconi, the  wireless inventor, a member of the  Italian war commission, will spend  much of his time in consultation  with the navy heads on the antisubmarine devices. It is stated that  the Italians have sunk thirteen submarines already this month.  Total .: 100,000  These figures are based approximately on the last census. It is ob  vious that if only 100,000 men are  to be raised by conscription, the selective meth'ud will have to be followed.  Common Sense  No more amazing thing has happened in the war than  the  all   but  unanimous adoption by the  United  States congress of the principle and  practice of    military   conscription.  Conscription   was  believed   to be a  thing belonging to a militaristic Europe.    It was an old-world   conception.    In the new workl of light and  liberty it could have no part.    William Jennings Bryan told his fellow  citizens that at  the threat of war a  million men would spring instantly  to arms.    But congress   saw   that  Bryan was not a propheb to  be   re  lied upon, for volunteers throughout  America numbered but a few  thousand   in   several    weeks.���������London  Free Press.  Maxim Says He Has It  Hudson Maxim has announced  that he has invented and perfected  a device which will make ships immune from the dangers of the submarine. He says that torpedoes,  even fired at close range and striking their targets, will explode harmlessly against the hulls of their intended victims.  The inventor asserts that the invention soon will be demonstrated  by the government, which already  has been advised of the details.  "The invention," he says, "can  be applied within a few months at  a comparatively cheap price to the  hulls of ships already constructed.  It in no sense or manner resembles  a screen or net."  IN THE PARPEN  Plant the main crop ot potatoes in  clean soil Jand treat the seed with  formalin to destroy scab.  The success of the garden depends as much on the control of  pests as weeds. Keep the spray-  pump handy.  Every pound of food produced in  the home garden liberates a similar  quantity for export.  The appointment of a food controller for Canada, urged by the  Dominion Trades and Labor congress, is considered certain.  Don't let tbe strawberry plants  you wish to secure runners from  bear fruit. Pinch the blossoms off  as soon as they appear and let the  strength go into the new plants.

Another mistake - of  this  kind, and  Mr. Weather Man will be as  unpopular in Grand Forks as a pacifist.  FRIDAY, MAY 25, 1017  The Sun made a prQtty ciose guess last  week when it made the statement that some  kind of censcription would probably be resorted to in Canada in the near future. It is  now announced from Ottawa that such a measure will be brought down in the house on  Monday next. We do not think the proposition will be seriously opposed. Since (the  United States adopted selective conscription  a great change has come over the people of  this conntry on this subject. They now realize than any action taken that will hasten  victory for allies will best serve the cause of  humanity, and as a result their former prejudices against a conscription law have been  altered from antagonism to. passive consent.  The report that Sir Wilfrid Laurier intends to  oppose the measure is scarcely to be credited.  Such a course would greatly reduce the  chances of success for the Liberal party in the  next general elections.  Everything we planted in our garden is now  up, except our fountain pen. We were in  hopes that it would produce a good crop of  editorials.  ��������� Newfoundland will, it is announced, enact  a selective conscription law. This idea is  spreading with wonderful rapidity, and before  long it will probably be a standard Jaw in all  the British oveeseas dominions. Canada, instead of lagging behind in this movement,  should be a leader���������and we feel sure that she  will lead. '        '��������� ���������  "We have a letter from one James Lawler,  he of Big Four fame, treating with the prohibition question from his point of view; but  since we have other letters from' anxious investors in the Big Four air bubble, wo do not  consider the communication would appeal to  the people of this little mining city. One of  the letter making.enquiry regarding the Big  Four is from a soldier; who, together with his  father, is fighting the battles of freedom at the  front. He, the soldier in the trenches, lias  been called upon to pay another assessment  to this man who would, according to his letter  referred to above, put out of business hotels  whose businesses are more legitimate a thousand times over than the hot-air propostion  this man is working on the unsuspecting public. This letter tlie Miner has received from  a soldier and his father who have put their  earnings in an imaginary enterprise, should  cause the proper authorities to take such action as will protect the people against -such  scheming."   It is such air bubble propositions  '&���������  The first session of British Columbia's first  Liberal administration adjourned last Saturday Jiight. Some wholesome laws were enacted during the session, though the proceedings were marred by graft investmations. Another thing tjhat appeared to be evident was  that the members of tho new government had  not yet become acustomed to their footing in  capitol buildng. When the government finishes washing dirty linen, and gets down to  real work, we expect to see many beneficial  reforms inaugurated.  One healthy sign in provincial politics is  that the government of the day has���������with the  possible exception of one ortwo���������no slavish or  fawning newspaper adherents. This was the  real cause of the downfall of the Tory government in this province. Had the Tory  papers cautioned a sane expenditure of the  people's money when they played the role of  sycophants for selfish gains, Sir Eichard Mc-  Bride would today be held in higher esteem  by British Columbians and the Victoria government would be in better financial condition than that of any other province in Canada.  It is going to cost the province a large sum  of money to find out whether or not there were  any irregularities in the taking of the soldiers'  vote.' Whether the result of the investigation  will justify the expenditure or not, time alone  can tell. A student of human nature might be  pardoned for expressing the opinion that the  charges of fraud are largely imaginary.  Jonah was naturally lonesome when he  made his famous voyage in the first submarine. He did not even have The Sun to  amuse and entertain him.  Water is, of course, the favorite element of  firemen when on active duty, but when holding a celebration they prefer sunshine. The  failure of the weather man to differentiate be-  as this Big Fonr 'mine and smelter' that has  given more than one good mining property a  black eye and has retarded development."���������-  RosslaudMiner.  Several Big Four assessment notices have  been received in this city. Anyone'who'pays  any attention to them acts very foolishly. Two  or three years ago this proposition was ex  posed as a fraud in the leading papers, including The Sun, of the province. As near as we  can ascertain the facts, they are: The Big Four  "mine," or mineral claim, somewhere near  Rossland, was long ago converted into a  ranch, and the "smelter" is purely a hot-air  institution. If there are no laws on our statute  books that will place behind the penitentiary  bars such conscienceless rascals as the promoters of this "property" undeniably are, it is  time for us to elect lawmakers who will  enact them.

"Oh, yes, you do," she returned  sweetly; "I'm the 'red-headed hen'  next door to you, whose 'imps of  boys' * are always running across  your garden. . When you started to  town this morning your wife said:  'Now,.Henry, if you want anything  to eat for dinner you'll have to leave  me some money. I can't keep house  on Christian Science.'"

Won't it be  nice to have really fresh butter?" -  RICHARD McBRIDE  TENDERS .RESIGNATION  t VicroRiA.May 21���������Premier Brewster on Saturday evening received a  cablegram from London announcing  that, owing to ill health, Sir Richard McBride was forced to resign  as agent-general for British Columbia in London. The resignation  caused a good deal of surprise in this  v city, though it had been a well  s-f known fact that during the last  three months Sir Richard has been  able to attend to his office only at  irregular intervals. There are no  particulars here as to his illness,  but the impression exists that his  sickness is so serious that it makes  ��������� imp issible bis further tenure; of  office. Some weeks ago the government had reached a tentative decision to dismiss him, but nothing was  done and tbe matter wa6 understood  to have been left indefinitely in  abeyance. Sir Richard was ap  pointed to London early in 1916.  ore taken out will have to be brought  there on scows and transferred. to  cars for shipment to the smelter.  Weeds  With the call for more production  there may be a tendency to increase  the acreage of high producing crops  such as the root and hoe crops on  the farm. In preparing for these  crops this year it will be well to  thoroughly bear in mind.that no  amount of cultivation after the crop  is in can make up for a lack of cultivation before the crop is planted. If  the ground is properly prepared for  the seeding and planting, the battle  is largely won. By thorough tillage  of the soil before planting,; thousands of tiny weeds will be killed  which would otherwise cause trouble in the growing crop. By preventing the weeds from growing the  crops are given a better opportunity  to develop and produce the food  which is sequired by Canadians in  Canada and the allies in Europe.  IN THE GARDEN  The modern gardener cultivates  his garden every ten /days or two  weeks to conserve moisture and liberate plant food. Weeds can not  grow where this system is followed.  Legislature Adjourns  The British Columbia legislature  adjourned Saturday evening until  August 14. The only business to  be taken up at the later date is the  prohibition question.  The parliamentary commission  to enquire into the deferred soldiers'  vote will consist of Messrs. David  Whiteside, F. A. Pauline and C. F.  Nelson, member? of the house. The  draft bill creating the commission  and defining its powers was presented, in the house late Friday  night and received the fir6t reading,  and was up for discussion and final  passage on Saturday.  Granby Bonds Properties  It is reported  that  the Granby  company has taken  an option on a  large block of claims known as  the  Cottonbeit,  situate   at   the head of  the Seymour Arm of Shuswap lake,  north of Sicamoui. The ore deposits  are principally galena, and the  lessees will prospect the  property this  summer with a diamond drill.   It is  also said that the owners of a mining property located on tbe east side  of Shuswap lake,  about  five miles  north of Sicauious are contemplat  ing renewal   of   development work.  At th s point some seven years  ago  a group of  Chicago capitalists carried out extenaive exploration work,  and these same   interests, who  also  have large holdings  in   the vicinity  of Golden which they   rontemplate  developing this summer, still retain  the claims.

The efforts of 20-  mile to create a disturbance are  much like those of Benny Hall to  shatter the atmosphere of Rossland  during the boom in that town.  Benny 6old a fraction for, it was  said, $237, and proceeded to celebrate. He got outside of a few shots,  some ham and a dozen over. Then he  met the late John Kirkup and wanted to know how much it cost to yell  in the town limits. John told him  ��������� to produce a sample yell. Benny  j let loose a squeak, and then, anx  iously, "How much1?" Jack looked  down into the anxious face and re  piied, "Turn it loose all over tbe  town.

Cabbages,,  cautifiowe'r, etc., should be set out  immediately*  Uncover the cold frames during  the middle of the day to "harden"  the plants.  Don't be. afraid to remove the  oldest or lower leaves when transplanting. Their presence is detrimental to the plant and they only  dry up and fall off later.  . This is an ideal time to start a  new rhubarb, asparagus or horseradish patch.

Sandy attended a dinner of the  Burns society one evening, and arrived home after midnight in a decidedly mellow condition. He undressed himself with some difficulty  and went down on his knees beside  the bed, where he sent forth some  incoherent mutterings that awoke  his wife.  "What's the matter, Sandy?" she  asked.  "Are you no' feelin' well?"  "I'm feelin' a' richt," replied  Sandy, "butlcanna mind a damned  word o' ma prayers."

Activity  along these lines is noted in many  places not heretofore under cultivation, which indicates the campaign  of thrift on the part of those who  gave taken the matter in charge is  producing results.

In the state of Wash  ington Governor Lister has proclaimed registration day a legal  holiday, and his example will probably be followed xby the governors  the other states.

Hospital records show that every  time you cut a corn you invite lockjaw or blood poison, which is needless,  says a Cincinnati authority, who tells  you that a quarter ounce of a drug  called ireezone can be obtained at little cost from the drug stor_ but is.  sufficient to rid one's feet of everyi  hard or soft corn or callus.  Tou Bimply apply a few drops of  ireezone on a tender, aching-corn and  soreness is instantly relieved.   Short-  fly the entire com can b������'lifted out,  root and all, without pain.  This drug is sticky but dries at once  and is claimed to just shrivel up any  corn without Inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tissue or skin.
