Grand Forks great harm to have a

Now, wouhlu't that jar you ?
But mayhe these conditions exist,
even though The Sun first hears of
their existence by way of Spallum-
sheeo. However, if employes at the
smelter have any desire lo use the
columns oi this paper to acquaint the
public with any grievance ihey may
have, they will be accorded the same
privileges that would be accorded to
the bosses. Except against long hours
we cpine the men make no complaint
but it is said one must po abroad to

Total Output for the Year
Over the Hundred Thousand Ton Mark.
A correspondent of The Evening
Sun, writing from Armstrong, B. C,
directs our alteution to a lengthy article in the Vernon News concerning
potato shipments from tbat section to
the Kootenays and Boundary country,
and asks, "How is.it tbat potatoes are
only $20 per ton in Grand Forks,
when they are $20 a toil here in the
heart of a great potato producing district ? They were $20 a ton last fall
in Bossburg and tbey are very scarce
in Wasbgton. They have always been
(10 a ton more in Grand Forks than
in Armstrong. Last fall the buyers at
Grand Forks spread tbe false report
tbat they were only $6 a ton here when
they were $10 a ton at the cheapest.
There is a potato famine at San Francisco, and American buyers have come
over to Ashcroft aud all the other chief
potato districts in British Columbia
and bought up the whole stock.    The
Vancouver   dealers    knew    nothing
about their action  till after they had
secured everything, and now there is
a potato   famine  at Vancouver and
other coast points.  There is a scarcity
at Nelson and Rossland, and I can't
understand how it is that potatoes are
$10 a ton lower in Grand  Forks now
than is usual in the spring, when the
supply is much smaller than usual."
The same writer is woried over the
labor situation   at the smelter, and
says:    "I hear that there is wide- ASSEMBLY PROROGUED.

Rossland, April 21.—With the output of ore for the week ending Saturday, the tonnage for the year to
date from the Rossland camp is
brought substantially over the hundred thousand mark, and this too despite the fact that two of the large
producers have only contributed to
tbe output on a small scale as yet.
During the week tbe LeRoi sent out
5890 tons, the LeRoi No. 2 1650 Ions,
the Centre Star 270 tons, the Ross-
land-Great Western 250 tons, and the
Spitzee 20 tons, totalling 8080 for the
week, and 106,849 tolls 'or tne vear t0

much satisfaction in Rossland.

Confederation Lile Association, with
ollices at Nelson, B. C, is iu town this

d.iy, aud will visit friends here,
John Donaldson bas in stock a supply of genuine maple suguar in loaf
form, from Cowansville, Queb.-c. Ye
editor has sampled it, and kuows
w.tieoff he speaks, as'lie has enjoyed
more than one "sugaring-off" party
in that section of country in his youthful days.
The affairs of the Hot Air railway
just now seem to furnish an abundance oft material tor curbsone gossip
and discussion. It had been claimed
ever since T. E. Birbeck and W. C.
Hayward severed their relation with
the local affairs ot the company that
there had been a leakage in the finances, said to be something over $11,000.
Expert acountants were set to work
on the books, and as a result a defalcation was discovered amounting to
$6,000, and other accounts have yet to
be examined. It was reported this
morning that warrants had been issued
for the arrest of Messrs. Berbeck
and Hsyward, but they have cot been
seen in this community for many days.
The beads of all the departments of
the Hot Air Mystery are not in evidence hereabouts today. Mr, Holland
went a week ago. some saying to the
coast, others tbat he had been called
to Toronto, and still others tbat he
had gone away to be married. Mr.
Morris was here last evening but was
out of town today.

The Grand Forks ci'y council at its
session last night pis=ed a motion to
fine each member of the council 2 per
cent of his year ly allowance every j
time he failed to attend any regular
meeting of that body, tbe smallest
individual allowance, $150, being the
bassis of computation, which will
cost each member of the council $3
for not answering to roll-call at a regular meetiug. Tbe matter of the city
electric machinery which is being used
by the Smelter came up again. It
appears the company bas notsufficient
power to run its four furnaces and two
converters, and by tolerance is using
the city's electric generators to make
up thedefficiency, no specific arrangements having been entered into regarding the conditions upon which the
city's plant is so used. Tbe council
will probably cut the co npatiy's lighting bill in two in the middle as the
fair method of evening up matters.

There will be a meeting of tbe share
holders of the Grand Forks Athletic

The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
Hue of the corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifie railway company has large interests in the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre,
The climate, taken all the year
around/is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent *f fertile agricultural land, part of whioh is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
Importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large

Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future

and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior.

tor at Oxford University.
London, April 21.—The Speaker devotes a long article to the probable
effect of the Rhodes scholarships on
Oxford University. It thinks it safe
to ignore the influence of the Germans
and colonials, saying the former will
naturally gravitate towards a Teutonic
clique, but it will be too small materially to affect the settled life and
traditions of Oxford. The colonials,
of whom there are many already at
Oxford, show no tendency to impress
themselves on the life of the college
as distinct from the  students  of  the
United Kingdom.   It is in the Amen
