The entertainment and dance tendered the Ladies of the Maccabees
by the local aerie of the Fraternal
Order of Eagles, last night, was attended by nearly the entire mem
bership of the former organization,
and everyone present spent an enjoyable evening. This was the first attempt made by the Eaglesjto spread
their wings in a social direction, and
that their effort proved successful
everyone who participated in last
night's festivities will attest. The
Eagles' spacious lodge-room, on
First itrett, was handsomely decorated with flags and bunting, and
flowtni a\id aromatic plants were
distributed in every nook and corner, lending additional beauty to
the scene, and loading the air with a
sweet fragrance.
Worthy President H. A. Sheads,
of the Eagles, made a neat little
speech of welcome to tt.e Maccabee*,
and was given a round of applause
after the peroration.

Tomorrow.
All the excursionists who took in
the Phoenix-Grand Forks excursion
to Spokane last Thursday, given by
the Great Northern railway to celebrate the opening of the Phoenix
branch, returned to the city Sunday
evening. They report having been
royally entertained by the Spokane
chamber of commerce, being rendered a banquet at the Silver Grill
cafe and a three hours' free streetcar
ride over all the lines in the city.
The young ladies of the guard of
the local hive of the Ladies of the
Maccabees will give a "grandmother's tea" party at the Taylor
house, on Wednesday, March 22,
from 3 till 5 and from 7 till 10 p.m.
Tea and cake will be served at 10c,
tbe proceeds to go to the guards of
the Ladies of the Maccabees.
J. D. Sears, Sr., one of the pio
neers of Grand Forks, returned to
the city last Thursday from the
Northwest territories, after an absence of about two years.
More teams have been put on
hauling ore from P. Burns' First
Thought mine to the Oiient railroad
siding for shipment to Everett smelter. Alexander Sharp, M.E., manager of the property, states that he
now finds no trouble to place the ore
with smelters, and the mine will continue to be a steady shipper, and he
hopes to gradually increase its output. While the ore is nearly as
silicious as the ores of Republic
camp, its rich gold values makes it a
more marketable commodity.
It is rumored that a wedding will
take place in the West ward about
the middle of next week—but it

An American syndicate is reported to be anxious to acquire timber

At the last meeting of the liquor

TUESDAY, MARCH 21, 1905.
G. N. SURVEYORS UP THE NORTH FORK.
lessly divergent readings of the Brit
ish North America Act by the two
premiers, it would be well for parliament to refer the question of the
educational clause to either the supreme court or the p.'ivy council for
a judicial decision,
THE CITY COUNCIL.
Just as we go to press we learn that
the Great Northern Railway company, becoming tired of the Provincial government's inability to decide
on railway legislation, has quietly
sent a party of surveyors into the
North Fork country, and they arc
now engaged in preliminary work.
As The Sun has previously re
marked, British Columbia is not a
one-per-eent country, so far as the
Boundary smelters are concerned, or
in any other respect. Jay P. Graves,
general manager of the Granby company, has just announced that that
corporation's big smelter in this city
is at present earning its owners the
tidy little sum of $100,000 per
month, which amount will be considerably increased when the two
additional large furnaces are added
to the batteny, increasing the capacity of the works by 35 per cent.
These earnings are at the rate of almost 10 per cent on the total capitalization of 613,500,000 of the company, but is a much higher pcrcent-
*age, of course, on the capital actually
invested. At this rate of progress
the company will soon be able to
give its employees a working day of
eight hours instead of twelve, without any danger of bankrupting the
stockholders, which fear was so apparent a month or so ago !
The management of the Dominion
exhibition, which will be held at
New Westminster this fall, is already
making preparations for an attractive
list of sporting events, in which the
people of tbe coast are always greatly
interested. The best lacrosse teams
of the East, it is expected, will come
out and try conclusions with tho exponents of the game in this Province.
Aquatic sports will also be a feature,
antl a special event will be arranged,
in which Lou Scholes of Toronto,
amateur champion oarsman of the
world and holder of tho Diamond
Sculls, the champiouship trophy of
England, will meet all-comers, who
are amateurs.
There is nothing new under the
sun, so it would seem ; for even
President Roosevelt's recent inaugural speech, according to a noted
English scholar, is a plagiarism of
one of the old Greek orators. And
the Englishman uses tho deadly
parallel column to prove his charge.
Aid. McCalluin, in his comments
upon thc proposed amended by-law
now before tho city council, in reference to the peddling question, shows
his adherence to those good old Liberal principles of the Dominion,
when he advocaies "Canada for tho
Canadians."
The business men of Republic are
up in arms against the poor mai
service they are receiving since the
Great Northern railway replaced
their passenger train with a mixed,
for the train does not reach Repubiel
sometimes till 11 p.m.
Tbe Ottawa Free Press makes the
suggestion that, in view of the hope
Concluded from First Page.
A petition was received from J. C.
McDonald and other residents of the
north end of First street, asking to
have a four-inch water main laid on
Victoria avenue, between Second
street and Riverside avenue. Referred to water and light committee
Thc water and light committee
presented their estimates for the current year, which amount to 615,500.
The police coninrissioirters 'stated
that they did not intend to ask the
council for any estimates for their
department, as they wish to make
the department self-sustaining ; and,
if it was found necessary, they intended to cut down expenses in order
to accomplish this object.
Aid. Brown, chairman of the
health and relief committee, stated
that he had inspected the eesspoo
under the Victoria hotel; that Mr.
Russell did not wish to have the
cesspool cleaned until after high
water. The mayor objected to leaving the cesspool in its present unsanitary condition until after high
water, and instructed Aid. Brown to
notify the proprietor of the hotel to
have it cleaned out forthwith.
The water and light committee
was instructed to dispose of the transformer shelves to the best advantage.
Aid. Clements reported that the
light supplied to th-* Yale hotel is
costing the city at the rate of 6GG.40
per month for power alone, for which
the eity is receiving 6(i0.
The clerk was instructed to purchase a car of lumber from Powers
ifc Lequime for immediate delivery.
Aid. Henniger recommended that
the city furnish 1,000 feet of lumber
to Taylor & Fisher, in order to complete tho drain from McCallum's
slough.   Laid over till next meeting.
The by-law to amend the Trades
License bylaw was then introduced
and read a first and second time.
Aid. McCallum stated that there are
two classes which he considered
should receive protection—first, the
retail trader who establishes a place
of business in the city, and, second,
the small market gardener who' increases thc value of the land. If it
were possible to legally protect these
two classes against foreign competition, by amending the by-law, he
was in favor of having it amended.
The city solicitor informed thecoun-
cil that the by-law would apply to
home peddlers the same as to peddlers from the other side of the line.
After a further discussion, it was
moved by Aid. McCalluin and Clements, that the committee arisewith-
out reporting.
The council then adjourned.
EAGLES' BIG TIME.
Concluded from First Page.
After this the dance waa started,
and it lasted until about 2 o'clock
this morning. A number of pieces
of vocal music were rendered between the dances. The music for
those who indulged in the mazy
waltz was furnished by James Cowie
and Miss Patterson, and it was highly completed. Card tables wero provided in the ante-rooms for those
who did not dance.
The biggest sight in connection
with the Eagles ball, is the culinary
department. Last night the eight
uniformed chefs spread the ten tables,
giving seating room to 75 persons,
in twelve minutes. This is a feat
that has never been equaled in this
city, and they received many praises
for their quick work. The menu
I consisted of everything that pleases
tho palate and satisfies the inner
man, and everybody did ample justice to the good things set before
them.
The Grand Forks Eagles are to be
congratulated on the splendid success they attained with their first social function.

M. S. Martin yesterday received a
letter from his old home in Granby,

information that on the day the letter was mailed the thermometer only
registereil 27' degrees below zero, and
that the snow had decreased so that

It is rumored among the railroad
contractors of Spokane that the Great
Northern will soon call for bids for
grading a roadbed from Midway to

year the company had a roadbed
graded from Curlew to Midway, and
it is supposed that orders will be
issued any day fo*the construction
gang to lay thc ties and rails. With

"Richelieu," the great play in
which Mr. Harold Nelson is shortly
to be seen, is more than a mere
dramatic performance. It is a direct spiritual force—a marvellous
illumination of history. Mr. Nelson, scholarly player that he is, has
a temperament and personality peculiarly fitted to the effective portrayal of the famous prince of the
Roman church. Critics everywhere
concede Richelieu to be Harold Nelson's strongest character. In the
revival which Mr. Nelson presents
here on Friday, March .31, rhere
will be absolute completeness of costuming and scenic investiture. His
manager, Mr. C. P. Walker, has
provided sumptuous mounting. The
supporting company will be even
stronger than in the recent production of "Paul Kauvar," which
pleased so much. Clearly, Mr. Nelson's return in "Richelieu" means a
treat to the lovers of worthy drama.

WHY GO EAST
Over the 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
vieif of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "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 five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, in-
eluding free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each iii charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent oan be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Are the Profits of the Granby Company,
According to General Manager
Jay P. Graves.
Smelting Capacity Will Be Increased
35 Per Cent on Completion of
Two New Furnaces.
According to a statement made by
General Manager Jay P. Graves
profits of 8100,000 per month are
being made by the Granby Consolidated Power, Mining ifc Smelting
company. "The company," he
says, "has a reserve of 8500,000 on
hand, counting cash, coke, supplies
and copper products in transit. The
company is producing copper at 9
cents a pound. When the two new
furnaces are running in July, the
present capacity of about 2100 tons
a day will be increased 35 per cent.
The company issued new stock recently to supply 870,000 for buying
the Tamarack and the Missing Link.
Except for that no new stock has
been issued for a long time. The
issued capital is about 813,500.000.
The stock has been exceedingly active in Boston around $6.25, and associates there write me that still
further advances ure expected."
The largest blast furnace in the
world has been put into successful
operation at the Washoe smelter at
Anaconda, Montana. Tho big furnace is as large as three of the ordinary size, having an inside measurement of 51 feet by 56 inches. The
blast is feed by 88 tuyeres, and in 24
bonus charges of ore aggregating
2,000 tons are turned into copper
matte,
WITH CRICK DI THE BACK
You are up against a whole lot of
trouble unless you have a strong
remedy like Nerviline to settle pain
and dislodge stiffness from the muscles
and joints. Just rub Nerviline on the
painful spot—not much rubbing because Nerviline has more power than
ordinary remedies. You won't suffer
long after Nerviline is applied, for it
relieves almost instantly. Mr. Phillip
Adams of Oakland says, "If I hadn't
used Nerviline I guess my back would
he stiff yet. A few applications of
Nerviline took out all the soreness
and stiffness. I can recommend Ner
vilinefor any muscular pain, and also
forrheumatism." Price 25c. H. E,
Woodland, druggist.
When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business   de
mands the latter kind ?
