ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
He Lost an Arm
W.Chalmers Seriously Injured at the
Granby Smelter
The Small Crane Mangles His Left Arm to Such an Extent
That Amputation Becomes Necessary—Local
I    Paragraphs of the City.
A serious accident occurred/.at the
Granby smelter early yesterday,
morning, the victim being W.
Chalmers, an employe of the big reduction company. Chalmers went
up to attend io something above tho
track on which the electric., crane
runs, and had just got up on a
level with it,, and had thrown his
left arm over the rail, when the
small crane came along, and before
he could withdraw it the arm,.,,was
caught and badly mangled. The
unfortunate man was taken -..down,
and Dr. E. R. Northrop was immediately summoned. After tbe arm
had been bandaged, Chalmers was
removed to the hospital,, where, .on
closer examination, it was found
necessary to amputate the arm above
the elbow.
Chalmers is a young man of 32
years of *kge, and unmarried. He
has been employed at- the snfelter
for some time, and has a large circle
of friends in the city, with whom he
is vory popular, and who will deeply
regret to learn of the sad mishap
which has befallen him. His home
is in Quebec.
Those'who witnessed the accident
say that Chalmers was looking out
for the big crane, instead of watching the smaller one.
Little Henry, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Fritz, met with a painful accident last Saturday afternoon.
While he and his little sister were
playing in their yard with an axe,
in some manner Henry had the
first finger of his left hand cut off
at thc k,nuckle joint Dr. Northrop
was called and dressed the wound.
Mrs. Fritz and family were to have
gone to Coleman, Alta., on Saturday, but owing to the accident will
have to remain for aiiutheu-wcfck.
The Sun enjoys the ehflfferit dis-.
tinction of being the only twicc-a-
week newspaper published in southeastern British Columbia.

and feed merchant, left today on a
business trip to Coleman, Alta.,

A: good-sized pi&e of Ore went
through the large plate'glass window
in the McMillan block, Phoenix,
one night last week, shattering one
of the biggest pieces of plate glass
in the Kootenay or Boundary. It
was from a blast in the Granby
mines, and was the first that has
been thrown that far—some 700 or
800 yards.
Next Friday evening the benefit
entertainment at the Phoenix skatr
ing rink for the general hospital, will
be held under the auspices of' the
Hospital Ladies' Aid, the use of the
rink £for the occasion having been
kindly donated by the proprietors.
An elaborate firogram has been prepared, anil every one. present that
night- will have a large 50 cents'
worth of pleasure. Any one of the
several matched races, to say no h-
ing of the ladies' hockey match, will
be worth tbe price of admission
alone. "
T. B. Crdston, who has been in
charge of tho freight department at
the C.P.R. station here for the past
three years, will leave this month
with his family for Vancouver,
to which pointjhc has been transferred, and will in future, reside
there. The many friends of thc
family in this city will regret their
departure, and the good wishes of
community will go with them.

""^Greenwood is now a veritable
"closed town," the seventeen hotels
closing at 11 o'clock Saturday night

benefit of a strict observance of the
Sunday closing statutory .regulations.

G. N. Construction
Work on the Phoenix Branch Will
Soon Be Commenced.
Twelve Hundred Men Will Be Put to Work Between This
City and Phoenix—Smelter Spur Will Also
Be Built.
An authentic statement from an
official source bas been made that
the Phoenix branch of the V., V. &
E. railway' will be commenced as
soon as the snow is off the ground
and the contractors can get their
outfits shipped in. This move has
been expected for some time, but up
lo this week no official announcement had been made to this effect.
The company expect to havo 1200
men at work between Phoenix and
this city, and construction will be
rushed with all possible speed. The
spur to the smelter will also be
built, apd it is hoped that Phoenix
and the Grapby smelter will be connected by rail over the Great Northern before Bnow flies next fall.
There is a lot of heavy rock work
to be done on the Phoenix branch,
.and the benefits to be derived by
Grand Forks from the building of
this section are. exceptionally good.
It is reported that W. I. Bassett,
C. E.,and J. H. Kennedy, late chief
engineer ofthe V., V. & E., have
both been ordered back to this city. '
Work on the Phoenix branch of
the Great Northern will start as soon
as the snow is off the ground, according to thc promises of J. J. Hill
to A. L. McMillan, managing director of the Le Roi Mining company,
says the Spokesman-Review. The
Boundary mines are still 20 miles
from the railroad, which has been
building toward them for a number
of years.
Mr. Hill has been sought by both
the raining people and the Northport
HtYie'i-er people to complete the line,'.
and at the last meeting of the Le
Roi stockholders, held in London,
Mr. McMillan reported to them tho
promise of Mr. Hill to 'begin the
work at once.

1903.
Inland revenue collections—
Victoria: 8182,208
Vancouver  304,890
Total. $487,09H
Looking over the above figures, it
will be seen that thc Boundary
country is byfarthe most important
mineral producing district in British
Columbia. The total pioluctiim
lor thc province in 1903 was 1,276,-
OJO' tons. Of that amount the
Boundary produced 085,000 tons,
or 94,000 tons more than the combined output of all the other sections
of the province. And yet six years
ago there was not 100 tons of ore
produced in tin? Boundary.
The customs collections for the
port of Grand Forks for the year
1903 amounted to. $05,885, being
$800 more than the collections for
the port of Rossland. Grand Forks
is third in thc list of value of dutiable goods imported, as the figures
hown in the other ports include
goods entered free, with the exception of Rossland and Grand Forks,
whero no free import figures are
given.

COINING NEWS
The B. C. Copper company has
issued a citcular announcing the
abandonment of its plan of consolidation with the SnOwshoe eompany.
The plan failed because thc Snow-
shoe company did not meet the requirements considered essential by
the 1). C. coninany. Il is surmised
that money market conditions are
chiefly responsible for the failure of
thc deal.
Dr. Hendryx has furnished the
Republic News-Miner with a statement that the mill has been running on ore of lower grade than the
average at the Mountain Lion mine,
89 per cent of which was ground to
HO mesh and li per cent coarser
than HO mesh. The values recovered wpre'88.03 per cent. The agreement with the mine management
was to save Ho per cent ofthe values
of average ore, ground to 80 mesh.
Therefore tho process has done better than mis required of if, and that
while working under many disadvantages.

'1IJESDAY, MARCH 8, 1904
Tun prospects for Grand Forks in
the. immediate future arc good.
That the Phoenix branch and the
smelter spur of .the V., V. & E. will
be commenced in a short time appears to be a settled fact. With the
employment of 1200 men on construction work between Grand Forks
and Phoenix, business in this eity
will take an upward turn; and there
is no doubt but that the completion
of thebraneh, and the increased facilities for shipping ore, will have a
tendency to induce the owners' of
many idle properties along the new
road to commence woik, thus adding lo thc Boundary payroll.
City Assessor Instructed to
Commence to Compile

Ir is stated that there are 95,C00,-
000 germs on an old dollar bill. Tiik

Lincoln, even as a young man, wat
Rlwaya rendy and resourceful on tho
platform.1 In the new book, Lincoln^ In
Story, It Is related that In 1838 Lincoln
made a telling speech In an election
campaign for the State Legislature of
Illinois. George Forquer, an old and
respected citizen, who had changed his
party, and almost simultaneously had
been appointed to a fat office by hia
new friends, was present. Just at this
time Mr. Forquer had completed the
finest house in Springfield and over it
erected a lightning-rod, the first In that
region. At the conclusion of Lincoln's
speech, Forquer took it up m himself to
reply, commencing thus: "This young
man will have to be taken down, and I
am sorry the task devolves upon me."
He then proceeded to answer Lincoln's
argument in an able and fair but patronizing manner. At length Forquer
ended and Lincoln had the floor to reply. "The gentleman has s-.-en fit," said
he, "to allude to my being a young
man, but he forgets that I am oldfr In
years than in the tricks and trades of
politicians. I desire long life und I desire place and distinction, but 1 would
rather die now than, like the gentleman, live to see the day that I would
change my politics for an office worth
$3,000 a year and then feel compelled
to erect 'a lightning-rod to protect a
guilty conscience from an nr ■ ■-*
ciod."

WHY GO EAST
Over Ihe sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest, scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
fanicd "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair ears,
standard nnd tourist sleepers, n perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion care,
each in charge pi a competent guide,
whose business is to look after tin:
comfort of bis guests. No more
pleasnnt nnd inexpensive menus of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Russian Red Tape.
W' ILUAH E. CURTIS had a
strange experience not long
ago when he called at a b.mb
In Russia to make a drift
•falrist his letter of credit. "I was met
at -the door by a man in gorgeous livery, with a long staff In his hand,*' he
ivrltes. "He led me Into a reception-
room which was sumptuously furnished.
Upon the center-table were several volumes of photographs, a city directory,
a railway guide, th* last report of the
bank, two or three guide-books, and
several morning papers. Over In one
of the corners was a handsomely
carved writing-desk furnished with all
sorts of stationery, While I was wondering what I was there for, a gentleman of Irreproachable' attire and manners entered, and asked how he could
se^ve me. I explained that I would
like two hundred and fifty dollars on
my letter of credit, and wondered how
he knew I was an American, but he
had doubtless learned from long experience to distinguish the different nationalities, and 1 soon discovered by
the manner In which he received subsequent arrivals that he could speak
German and French as fluently as
English. I handed him my letter of
credit, and he bowed politely and left
the'room. For a time I was alone with
my own thoughts. I looked over all
the books and papers, watched 'the
traffic In the street from the window,
made two or three entries In my notebook, And wondered1 If the polite gentleman had not forgotten all about me,
when a page In buttons entered with
a sliver tray, upon which were two
drafts —duplicates —for my signature.
The little fellow bowed like a French
dancing-muster, and seemed to be
deeply Impressed with a sense of responsibility. He came in several times
afterward on similar service for
other people, and his salutes were repelled each time .with an exactness
that showed careful training. I was.
afraid he was going to be gone all day,
and became Impatient. I sat down at
the desk to write a letter, and had
written nearly a whole sheet when he
came back with my letter of credit and
the money upon his tray. But the latter was all In bills. I handed him one
of them and asked him to get It
changed. He bowed again and disappeared. I must have spent fifteen
minutes regretting my folly, when the
handsome -manager came in to enquire
If there had been a mistake. He seemed
to think I had been overpaid, and was
greatly relieved when I told him .1 only
wanted a bill changed. He disappeared, and it was another ten minutes
before the boy returned'with the smaller hills. I had been In that room for
more than three-quarters of an hour."

DEAN STUBBS of Ely does not llkf
Chicago. In his book, "In a
Minster Garden," the Dean's
causerle revolves amiably round Ely,
but where he discourses on his holiday
in the New World he becomes most
amusing. Of Chicago he says: "J
thought it the most hatefully unlovely
city I ever was In. There were fine
buildings, of course—warehouses for
the most pari, of the 'sky-scraping'
variety—bui, as a whole, hateful, simply hateful—a clanking wilderness of
endless streets, monotonous, unplc-
turesque, untidy, dirty, foul."
Yet the Dean tells at least one story
which proves that Chicago, for all Its
inlovellness, has a knack of digesting
all who go to live there. It relates to
Archdeacon Ruohton, the secretary of
Bishop Maclaren, The Archdeacon was
a Torkshireman by birth; he had married a Canadian; but be had. been settled for some time in Chicago. "His
children, he told me, were born In that
city. One day lately his youngest boy
came home from school looking grave
and solemn. He had just been promoted to the history class, and had
been reading about the War of Independence. 'Father,' he said, 'are you a
Britisher?' 'Tes, my boy, I am.' *Oh.'
. . . Mother, are you a Britisher?'
'Tes, dear, I am,' she said. 'Well,' he
replied, after a pause/ 'I don't care.
Tou had the King's army, and we
were only a lot of farmers, but we
thrashed youl'"
An attorney named Else, rather diminutive In hfs stature, and not par-
tlcularly respectable In hfs character,
once met Jekyll. "Sir," saJd he, "I
hear you have called me a pettifogging
scoundrel. Have you done so, sir?"
•Sir," said Jekyll, with a look of contempt, "I never said you were a pettifogger, or a scoundrel, but I said you
n-bra 'little Else.'"

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
. the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

DAILY NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices tins been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given thnt paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future' success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based licit only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
the home and district news, and
tho big 12-pnge daily keeping you in
touch with events,all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see

,   One Obstacle Overcome.
WILLIE! was a bright bo>-, ot an Inventive turn of mind. At the age
of eight or ten he was seized
with the "p-'i'tielual motion" idea, and
began to mnlte nil sorts of queer machines, despite tile advice of his father,
who mid ti I ■ ii of men that had devoted
their lives to a vain search for perpetual motion. .
"It violates the first principles of
mechanics', my bey," .-...nl hijt .ather.
"Action and reaction are equal, as you
will understand pome day. When you
can pull yourself up by your bootstraps, you may hope to Invent a ma-
chlv hitt will start itself and run
without stopping.**
The next day Willie came to his
father In great excitement aifd told
him he had done it—had pulled himself up by his bootstraps.
"It's no trick at all," he said as hs
led tbe way to the barn, where he
showed his bewildered father a pair of
old boots nailed, soles up, to a beam
overhead.
"There!" he exclaimed, as he climbed
on a box, reached up, ran his fingers
through the straps of the boots and
pulled himself up. "What do you think
of that?"
Willie's father did not reply In words.
Instead, .he took a harness strap, and
then and' there Willie gave an Imitation of perpetual motion which required no elaborate apparatus.

MINISTERS have many Interesting
and amush.g experience*.
A clergyman of Dulu-th, Minn.,
was engaged in conversation with a
number of friends the other day, when
each started telling stories of wedding*
he had performed. One of the party
had this to offer:
Some time ago * great big fellow,
roughly dressed, and a wee mite of a
young woman came to him. They had
no witnesses, and, In fact, did not care
to 'have any. Nevertheless, a bridesmaid and groomsman were selected
from the household and the ceremony
began. They had promised to love and
obey and all the rest of the service,
when the preacher announced: "Kiss
the bride."
The bridegroom, on bended knee,
hesitated a little, tried to say something and couldn't.
"Kiss the bride," said the pastor.
"Why, parson, I did, afore I com-}
here at all," replied the bridegroom,
whose face had taken tiie color of s
June rom.
The witnesses burst forth In laughter, while the minister had all he could
do to retain the serljus expression
which he always wore when wedding
people.

The man who-forgets the-obligations
In the way of shopping Imposed upon
Mm by the women of his family when
he leaves the house Is not rare enough
to excite curiosity, but the woman with
sufficient tact and wit to checkmate
this loss of memory Is, One such lives
In Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia
"Record" says that she had labored for
several days to Impress upon her husband the necessity, of sending home a
bag of potatoes.
At last, when all her persuasions and
Injunctions had failed, she surprised
him one morning by handing him a
sealed letter, and asking him wltb
great seriousness not to open It until
he reached Ms place of business. All
the way down town he thought of the
strange request, and he no sooner
entered his office than he tore open the
letter.   Thl« ts what he read :
"Dear John—For some time past I
have thought long and earnestly on
what I have to say to you,, and I have
decided that this Is tbe best method to
communicate It I have hesitated several times about writing to you In this
way, but I find that I cannot conceal
my thoughts longer. I must and will
tell you all."
Here John's hair began to rise, but
he heroically turned over the page and
read on: "The potatoes have been out
for a week. Please send hbme a bag,
