Grand Forks Eagles Have a Big Installation and Spread.
The Prosecution Failing to Produce Any Evidence, the
Storey Case Is Dismissed—Why Smith and Other
Grand Forks People Left Home,
, The local aerie of the Fraternal
Order of Eagles held an installation
in their new hall in the Addison
block last Monday night. Thirty-
one new members were initiated,
bringing the total membership ofthe
aerie up to over 75. President Royer
occupied the chair, and disposed of
the evening's business in a credi'able
manner. A number of- outside
aeries were represented, including
Republic and Danville, Wash. After
the installation and other routine
business had been concluded, an
adjournment was taken to the banqueting room, where a splendid
spread awaited them, and which
proved to be the climax of the evening's program. The feasting was interspersed with songs, music and
witty stories until the early hours of
the morning. After voting it one of
the most pleasant gatherings of .the
Grand Forks Aerie, the entertainment was brought to a close.
H. N. Storey, late night operator
at the C. P. R. station in this city,
who was charged by thc Dominion
Express company of stealing feven
suits of clothes and a quantity of
cigars from their storeroom at the
depot, was up before Police Magistrate Cochrane Wednesday afternoon'. The prosecution failed to
produce any evidence, and magistrate dismissed the case aud released
the accused, returning to him the
cash bail wnich he had put up. E.
Miller appeared for Storey.
of applause. The story of "Why
Smith Left Home" treats with the
determination of the newly married
Smiths to pass their honeymoon at
home instead of taking the usual
trip abroad, of the disturbing arrival
of a domineering-relative, and then
of the coming of another pair **of
newly'married ones, which is still
.more inconvenient, and of the final
desperate resolve of the Smiths to
leave home in order to secure peace
and quiet. It is a charming comedy,
free from vulgarity, clean aud most
wholesome.
A court of revision and appeal,
under the provisions of the new Assessment Act, will he held nt the

Tho Ladies of the Maccabees entertained the members of tho local
hive and their friends at their lodge
rooms in the Chappie block on
Wednesday evening last. A very
enjoyable time was spent, progressive whist being the favorite
pastime. Mrs. Geo. (,'happle succeeded in carrying oft the first prize
for ladies, and W. H.- Creitz was the
winner of the first prize for gentlemen. A dainty supper was served
in the banqueting room, after which
the evening's entertainment. was
bronght to a close. The ladies of

Summit GroupSold
Phoenix Men Secure Half Interest in
Promising Property
Supplies and a Force of Men Are Now on the Ground and
Active Development Has Already Been Started.
Near the Oro Denoro.
G. W. Rumberger and Thomas
Roderick, of Phoenix, have completed a deal which means the active
development of a most promising
group of claims in Summit camp.
Tney Ivve purchased a one-half interest in the Summit, Hopeful and
Mayflower claims for a substantial
cash consideration, which has not
been made public. The interest was
sold by A, 1). Hallett, of Gieenwood,
executor for the estate of the late
Archie Connor, who lost his life
some mouths ago by being accidentally crushed in the Emma mine ore
bins. The other half interest in the
group is owned by Dougald Mclnnis,
the Grand Forks rancher, he having
purchased it some two years ago
from W. A. Corbett, one of the
original prospectors of Summit cam]).
Since then considerable work hns
boon done on the properties, amounting to more than $2000 in value,
As soon as the transfer was completed Mr. Roderick at once proceeded lb the group with supplies
and a force of men, and has started
active operations. The Summit
group is located near the Oro Denoro,
the . ore being of, much the same
charaoter. Up to the present most
of thc work has been done on the
Summit claim, where the 75-foot
tunnel is now being extended, with
the face all in ore. Considerable
surface prospecting has also been
done on tho group, uncovering a
large ledge of ore. The permanent
line of the Great Northern railway
survey, from Grand Forks to Phoenix, runs close to the Summit group,
so that adequate transportation
facilities will be provided as soon as
needed. i
Arrangements, it is said, are being
made for the incorporating of a company to operate the Hope claim,
owned by David Oxlcy, in Wellington camp. The Hope almost'afljoilis
the Athelstan, and the ore is said to
be of a similar character.
The shipment of high grade silver,
ore being made from the Sally, on
the West Fork of Kettle river, will
amount to about three cars. The
ore will be sent to the Trail smelter.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY ! 6  191)4
It is about time that Grand Forks
took some steps looking towards
the erection of a general hospital.
There is no apparent reason why
tbis city should not be ns well able
to build, equip nnd maintain orte ns
either Phoenix or Greenwood., Here
we have the Granby smelter, where
upwards of 400 men are employed,
nnd also a centralization of railway
interests, which will increase in importance ns time goes on. In case
of accidents or sudden sickness the
city is more easily, reached, than any
bt'ier piifft in the Boundary. It is
the centre of a vast area, including
many miles of American territory.
To cite nn instance. Last Saturday
a serious shooting affray 'occurred at
Orient, Wnsh., about fifteen miles
south of Laurier. The victim wns
brought to this city. On his arrival
here he wns refused admission to ,n
private hospital because he did not
have enough money to pay for two
weeks' expenses in advance. Suffering agony from a bullet wound, be
wns diiven nround the town until a
party was found who gia-anteed
th t th! money wou'd be ] aid,
when be was admitted. Some steps
should be taken immediately to get
a general hospital started at once.
The city would assist the project, ns
would also the provinciilgovernment.
As far as we can make out, the
city audit, which is causing such a
tempest in a teapot in the council
nt present, is only a matter of a difference of opinion as the way in
which tbe financial statement should
be made out. It appears to be a
ense of different auditors having different methods of reac' i' g the same
conclusions. By either process the
grand totals come nut the same,
and tho city is neither richer nor
poorer.
Civic affairs, which for a time
threatened to cause quite .n commotion, have settled down to their
normal state ftgaii*. Everything is
now in exactly the snme condition
as when the new council took office
last month, with the exception of
tbe police department. The knowing ones say that that will soon be
Bottled, also.
THERE should be a prize offered
tho newspaper making the closes
guess as to the real happenings in
the Jap-Russian war. 1 f tbe trophy
was a valuable one, we might be
able to get some reliable iniorma-
tion from the far east.
the city, but who was supposed to
be returning thereto or therethrough,
It is the. invariable custom where
the offender is to be lauded, if *the
expression may be used, to confine
all knowledge of the fact to the informant, tbe magistrate and the police, and this for obvious reasons.
This practice was seemingly well adhered to in the case ol'youngStorey.
The question arises: From whom
did Mr. Holland receive information
that a warrant had been issued
against him} How came thc .facts
to leak out, thereby enabling him
to escape in the dramatic way he
did. Until the facts are known, it
is only right to suspend judgment.
Is there anything in thiB case to confirm the saying of Solon: "Laws are
like spiders'' webs which will catch,
it is true, the weak and .the poor,
but easily be broken by the mighty
and rich." In which category was
young Storey placed and in which
was Holland? Furthermore, theal-
ledged offense of Storey was loudly
proclaimed by the newsgatlierers,
but although those exponents of
public happenings well knew of the
other case, yet nothing was said.
What right had the newspapers,
with glaring headlines, to thus place
the one before the. cruel notice of the
public, while by silence shielding
the more grievous charge and the
well carried out plan to escape
an investigation? Storey iniglit have
resisted an enquiry, but be showed
at least the courage to return across
the boundary line and face his accusers. . Lex.
[It is quite apparent thnt Lex
has been reading The Sun rather
laxly of late. If he hail paid clos-r
attention to its news columns, he
:ould not have failed to see an account of Mr. Holland's serio-comic
iscape. If that gentleman had been
captured, the incident would doubtless have warranted glaring headlines. The St'N has to pay a special
city license tax for the privilege of
printing all the news,1'and we work
this privilege to the limit.—Ed.

J. Plerpont Morran makes his boast
that he never ha« b*en interviewed,
and declares that In the last seven
years but one interviewer ever has been
able to approach lilm. This was on a
recent trip to Europe, when a representative of the London "Times" would
not take "No" tor his answer. "Tell
the 'Times' man my ttmei la worth ten
pounds a minute," at last said Morgan.
"The 'Times' man says he'll take two
minutes at that," name back the reply.
The .interviewer handed Mr. Morgan
twenty pounds, talked Just two minutes by both their watches, did all the
taHtlng himself, and rose to go on the
Instant. "Why did you want to see
me?" Morgan asked m curiosity. "Oh,
I^wagered one hundred pounds that I
would Interview you personally, that*a
all," was his reply. Morgan congratulated him on his enterprise, and dismissed him within the third minute of
his call. When a£ked. the other day, If
he kept the twenty pounds, Morgan
said: "Yes, nnd 1 haven't earned money In a long time that gave me the
satisfaction that twenty pounds did."
It is to be presumed that the alderman who would like to see a new
city audit.made, does not speak from
the standpoint of municipal economy.

WHY GO EAST
Over the Bun-butnea, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just ns well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the llocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery'on the
American continent?
This you can do hy traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, thc far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the onjy transcontinental line passing thtough Salt I-akc City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern point*.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is Ui look after the
comfort of bis guests. N'o more
pleasant and inexpensive means ot
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Curious Bits of News.
I* London on New tear's Day, *
bm-tfar, having carried off five thousand pounds' worth of Jewelry, all the
tHvtr, and a large sum In ready money,
pinned a note on the hearth-rug wish-
Ing Its rightful owners "Many happy
returns of the day.".
Th« London "Chronicle" quotes a
naval oflker as saying that during tho
War or 1812 the British Admiralty sent
out to Kingston (Ont.), where the British fleet was then stationed, a large
number of water-casfc*. in the hellef
that Lake Ontario was a salt water
lake. .    I       	
A coal-hod In the window of a New
Tork clothier is filled wltih bills and
coin, In which is thrust a coal shovel.
Beside it is a small stove, so arranged
with a red incandescent light that it
appears to contain a brisk Are. Near
thorn Is the legend: " .Ve-are Just burning money on these U2 suits, but we
need the room, and they must be moved
by February 1."
In an article on "Life in Labrador" In
"Blackwood's Magazine," Mr. W. T.
Grenfell vouches tor the following: "A
friend who had a yuung live black bear
as a pet burled It In November In a
barrel under the snow. Twice he dug
it up In the winter, but tt showed oo
signs of wishing to move, so he permitted It to sleep on till May."
Odors as an assistance to diagnosis
is a new branch of medical science.
The "Medical Record" 1b authority for
the statement that the odor ol new
mown hay. Is an Indication of pyaemia.
typhus Is Indicated by an ammoniac
smell. Jaundice by a musky onei yellow
fever by the odor of a gun-barrel, hysteria by a suggestion" of violets or pineapples, intermittent fever by the smell
of fresh-baked brown bread, an*?
measles by one like fresh picked featfe
ers. It seems somewhat incongruoup
that the Emell of th*; plague resemble*
honey.
The newest of queer religious sects It
the "Association of Chilstlan Breth-
ien," which, aceord'ng to the New York
"Sun," Is "sailing down the Mississippi
in a modern Imitation of the Ark to tPil
people that the millennium is surely
coming In 1941." "■Meglddo" is the'
name of the boat, arid nearly one hundred persons, men, women and children, are aboard of her. The president
of the sect Is L. T. Nichols of Minneapolis, and he launched his craft at the
end of November. Ej holds hlmsell
mainly responsible 1'ov the support ol
his followers, who are planning to 11VJ
on the "Meglddw" until the day of th.
millennium.
Men sometimes dream of enomiou.-
wealth Btored deep In the earth, below
the reach of miners, but accordlr-? ti
the btatements of Professor C. B. Van
Hlse at the Denver meeting of the Am
erican Association for the Advance
ment of Sclenee, there is little or nc
ground to believe that valuable metallic deposits He very ilcep In the earth'1
crust. Such deposit**, he said, are madi-
by underground wait-rs, and owing to
the pressure oh the rocks at great
depths, the waters are confined to a
shell near the surface. With few exJ
ceptlons, ore deposits become too lean
to repay working below 3,000 feet. Nine
mines In ten, taking the world as a
.whole, are poorer In the second thousand feet than In the first thousand,
and poorer yet In the third thousand
than In the second.
An article In "Alnslee's Magatlne"
contains this pHF^agte: "The world has
never seen, and In no other part of the
world 1b there now to be seen anything
like America's Jewel-madness as shown
by the conditions of to-day. when more
than three hundred New Tork establishments are engaged solely in the Importation of precious stones, when
agents of American dealers are searching Europe for the wh-te gem and hopelessly endeavoring to supply American
e^peaU f°r rubles und emeralds, aud
when six thousand men In South Africa are tolling to obtain diamonds more
than half of which are to add to tha
beauty and happiness of the American
woman. It Is she that has caused the
United States to become the greatest
diamond market In the world. For her
we have imported in a single year $20,-
000,000 worth of precious stonea; for
her, at one period we smuggled them
In at tho rate of $7,000,000 a year; lor
her we annually buy something like
$12,000,000 worth of diamonds, and thus
for her Bake, heartlessly leave, of the
world's total output of diamonds, only
some $8,000,000 worth to sstlsfy tho
vanity of ail the rest of the women on
earth."
Sweetness 1 one Drawn Out.
A business man of whom tho "Youh's
Companion" tu'la d-.t-luiwi Mint tho
average stenographer will not learn to
spell correctly until the millennium
comes. In tupnort of his opinion he
relates hlB experience with a young woman whose selling, as he describes tt,
had an "engaging originality," but who
was so amiable and even-tempered that
he soldom found heart to rebuke 'her.
One day she appeared beforo him
with a neatly written letter for a
Southern correspondent. Ho hastily
looked It over.
"See here," he said, "you've spelled
sugar s-u-g-g-a-r."
The young woman looked at It a moment critically, ind then her face
brightened as Bhe replied:
"So I have. How careless of me! I

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptr
ly is not good service—good work delivered' behind
time is not good service; butthe two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirement", 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

DAILY NEWS
AN I THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
...FOR   ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of tho newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, dnrin<r which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise nnd originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 81.00 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.
Hut just as the dollar magazine hns
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, bused not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merils of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club Ihe Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many Unique features
—our Betni-weekiy giving you all
thc home and district news, and
thi'big 12-pngo daily keeping you in
touch with events nil over the world.

Football Tactics in the Ballroom.
The American Society of Professors oi
Dancing, which recently met in New
York, has decreed that football tactic/
on the ballroom floor must stop. Thcr
must be no more "Yale glides.'' not
"Harvard dips," nor dislorted attempt*
to tread a measure in two-four tinid
when the music calls for three beats ir*
a bar. The dancing of the two-step to
waltz time and the grotesque position*
assumed by thn dancers are evils attributed to the college fads that hnve vitl■
ated the public taste. "Some of tlic--,<i
student*" said one professor, "invent a
series of Simian contortions and football
tactics nnd give it a colleoe name, and
the public think* it is alt riirht be can so
the rnlleje men do It. Now, we want.to
-.top nil this, and brinjr -jnncing hack to
the old style of graceful' carriage that
enabled the dancers to express the beauty of motion to music. A majority of
the people now seem to dance n two-step
to waltz music. This is not right. The
two-step is easier to teach, as it is'-n
common time, and dancing it to waltz
inusle is pot n correct movement." At',
tcntion was also drawn to thc neglect In
thc large cities of the old square dances,
which are still taught in the smaller
cities.
