The election was very quiet, there

Two names, those of John fiil-
inourand John Redman, were added

The water in tbe Keltic river is
rising rapidly. The hot weather of
the past few days has melted the
snow on the mountain sides and all
streams emptying into the river have
been cbnsiberably swollen. The
' water in the North Fork had risen
between rive and six feet up to noon
today. Tne main river is also rising
at a rapid rale, and a large quantity
of driftwood, sawloga and ties is
coming down. Gardner, the sawmill man at Danville, is mourning
the loss of his booms of logs. A
boom of ties broke away at Curlew,
and they, too, are floating down
stream. None of tho bridges lire in
danger vet, but with a rise of a few
feet more tin y will have to beelosely
John Collinghiim, a well known
cl araeter, who had lived on a farm
three miles west of Colville, Wash.,
for a number of years, died at his
home last Monday evening after a
long illness. Ho formerly conducted
a harness shop in Colville. He was
a native of eastern Canada, about 115
■ years of age, and came to this section fourteen years ago from Calgary. Thc funeral took place on
' Wednesday. Mr. Cottinghnm was
well known in (Irand Forks, having
conducted a harness shop here six
years ago. Later he moved to Danville, Wash., from which place he
went to Colville. His many friends
in thisvieinty will regret to hear of
his death. He leaves a wife to
mourn his loss.
A well known business man of
this city invested otic in a box of
candy at the bazar Wednesday.evening, and took it to his hotel, where
he placed it under his hat while he
enjoyed his dinner. In the meantime some one filched the box, extracted its contents and   refilled  it
with some old orange peels, and carefully replaced it in its original position. Feeling in a generous mood
after satisfying the inner man, the
merchant cast his eyes around the
room for some worthy person on
whom to bestow the box of choice
sweets. Ah, yes. He espied a young
lady who, he fell sure, would appreciate the gift, and after making an
elaborate bow, he presented her will)
the box, for which she graciously
thanked him, and then opened it,
only to discover the aged orange
peels. Well, the last heard of, the
business man he was still increasing
the distance between himself and tin
city. It is thought he finally landed
in Phoenix, where he will have a
good opportunity to cool off.
large reward has been offered for the
apprehension of the villinn responsible for the metamorphosis of tin
contents of the box.
Last Sunday morning Peter Chris
tenson, engineer of" the slag engine
at the Greenwood smelter,' met -vi-.h
a very serious accident. Thc hot-
slag engine ran oil' the railway track
into Ihe converter, lie was engaged with a number of men putting
the engine on the track, and he fell
oil the bridge upon the railway track
below, a distance of about twenty
feet. He had me leg and one arm
broken; had the side of his head
badly cut, and was injured internally. Fears are entertained of his
"Are you sure these corsets are
unbreakable?" asked the doubting
customer. "J have been wearing a
pair myself for a year," said the
shopgirl, "and they are not broken
yet. And," she continued, blushing, "I'm engaged."
The smelter bridge eiiine very near

last Wednesday to look up old

The "Feast of Days" and bazar,
tinder the auspices of the Ladies'
Aid ofthe Methodist church, held on
Wednesday, was a brilliant success,
due mainly tn the untiring energy
of the ladies of that organization.
The interior of the building was
beautifully decorated. Thc booths,
which were presided over by Ihe
1 idies, numbered one for each clay
of Ihe week, and they were well
arranged and very handsomely fitted
up, displaying attractive articles in
fancy work and other materials.
The whole thing certainly reflected
great credit on tnose who had eon
ceived the idea of thefnirund carried
out the details of the same to such
a successful conclusion. The room
presented a metropolitan bazar-like
appearance, Thc ladies made c.v
eel lent saleswomen, and many an
unwary young man came away
from some ofthe booths with more
merchandise than he had intended
to purchase, owing primarily to the
persuasive powers of those whose
business it was tu dispose of the
goods. Tea was served between the
hours of 5 and 8 p. in,, and was well
patronized, as was natural, everything that thc appetite could desire
being served, even ice cream. The
candy booth hi the centre of tho
room was a great attraction, the
young ladies who presided over it
serving out great quantities of homemade candies, and the revenue from
tnut source must have been more
than satisfactory. Tin-: Si:n reporter
made an attempt to pick out tne
most attractive booth, but after looking over all of them he dooidod they
wore all in the same class—al leist
he came to tho conclusion that this
would be the safest way to put ii.
Tin: entire affair was well carried
out, and those taking part cert duly
worked early and late to make it a
success, and deserve tin: gieatest

Nelson, B.C., March 31, 2904.
Secretary   Board of   Trade,   Grand
Forks, B. C.
Dkaii Silt:—I beg to enclose herewith copy of memorial prepared by
the committee of the Silver-Lead
Mines association of this district.
This memorial fully explains itself.
Our board held a special meeting
last evening for the purpose of thoroughly considering this memorial,
and after questioning the members
of thc committee from thc Silver-
Lead Mines association, the same
was unanimously ehdo-sed by our
board ol trade, and 1 was instructed
to send you a copy of the resolution
passed by our members. This resolution was as follows:
"That this meeting fully endorses
the arrangement arrived at by the
representatives of the lead miners
aud smelters, and that the government be respectfully asked to make
the concession asked for up to oOth
June, 1905, hut such concession not
to be continued after that date."
We would ask your board to thoroughly consider this proposition and
call n-special meeting, nnd if you can
sec your way clear to endorse the
same, kindly advise the member for
your district, who will undoubtedly
now be; at Ottawa, asking him to
urge the: gove n-iicut to gri iv thc
request as presented by the said
Silver-Lead Minesasscieialion. Yours
very truly, II. G. GooDENOUOH,
The resolution was endorsed by

The following resolution, passed
at u meeting recently Hold in the
Kettle Valley liue station by the
settlers of the south side, was fully
endorsed by the board:
Tn tin: Honorable the Commiesione^ oj
Lands uml   Works, Victoria, 11. C.
The potition of ihe undersigned
residents south of the Kettle liver,
in the Osoyoos division, county of
Vale, humbly shewcth:
That upon a recent visit of tbe
government engineer to (Irand Forks
he condemned the present bridge
over the Kittle river on First street,
Orand Forks.
That the said bridge is now thc
only means of communication between tic scum is south "I Grand
Forks and Ihe city, and I licit at high
water it is invariably impassable
owing In the south end of il being
flooded with a rapidly running cur
rent which extends for a quarter of a
mile over the b;.nk
That the cityTias for the past six
yeara kept a force of men at work
during flood-time to save the bridge
from being swept away by floating
trees and logs, and that the city
has alone borne the annual expense^
some three hundred dollars.
That at a recent meeting of settlers, held April 8th, at which the
member for. the district was, by invitation, present, a resolution was
unanimously passed asking the provincial government to construct a
bridge across the said river on Fourth
stieet, both because such a site
seemed more convenient to uvoid
railway crossings and to the body of
settlers, and because the present
bridge, if neglected by the city and
the government, ns seems likol;, c»
liable to be swept out this coining
high water:
Therefore your petitioners pray—
That the commissioner of lauds
and works recommend to the government the construction of a bridge
as soon as possible over thc Kettle
river at the point named.
And your petitioners as in duty
bound will ever pray.
