C.P.R. Survey Between This
City and Vernon Has Been
'Completed
Great Northern Will   Reach
Princeton in a Year's
Time '
J. Callahan has completed a preliminary survey of the proposed
C.P.R. extension fiom Grand Forks
to Vemon, and reports having found
a 4500-foot pass between these two
towns, tbe lowest heretofore discovered being 4600 feet above sea level.
The proposed road, which can be
constructed with a maximu-n grade
of 1 per cent, would tap three of the
best mining camps in this part of the.
province, viz., Franklin, Thunder
Hill and Monashee mountain, besides opening up 60 miles pf the
richest agricultural land-rip British
Columbia south of Vernon. With
the extensive development work now
being carried on in Franklin cbmp,
it is almost a certainty that this road
will be built next summer.
L. E. Shields, of the firm of
Simms & Shields, the well known
Great Northern contractors, arrived
in the city Tuesday, evening from
St. Paul, to await, the 'arrival. of
Chief Engineer Hogeland. Mr.
Shields will accompany the; chief
engineer on a trip over the 'Great
Northern survey from i Midway
to Princeton, thenoe west to the
coast through the Hope mountains.
Mr. Shields said the contractors are
experiencing considerable difficulty
in getting sufficient men for construction work, as there is a great
deal of railway work in tbe. west at
present. In St. Paul street laborers
are being paid $2.25 per day. He
thought it would probaGly be well
on in September before the construction work from Midway west
would be under way. However,
the work once started,'it will be
rushed to completion, and"1 he made
the prediction that the road woutd
be finished and steel laid as far west
as Princeton inside of a year. The
most difficult piece of construction
■work on tbe entire road, he said, is
an 18-mile long stretch immediately,
east of Oro. On this section there
will be a 2J per cent grade the en
tire distance.
Louis W. Hill, first vice-president
of the Great Northern railway, and
the party of officials wbo were in
Vancouver a few days ago, paid a
short visit to Victoria. According to
the Times, Mr. Hill, does not consider that Victorians have the slightest hope of realizing their ambition,
viz., to become tbe terminal of the
transcontinental railway. In the
course of an interview the Times
says": "Mr. Hill thinks Victoria has
a splendid future as a tourist resort,
but does not regard it as the prospective terminus of a transcontinental line. But he does believe that it
can attain to equal prominence along
the lines for which its advantages
have eminently adapted it."
N. McLellan went up to Miday today on a business tup.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
A Stendal, of the smelter boarding
house, is opening a branch house at
Midway. It will be known as the
Norden.
A Duluth(Minn.) syndicate of capitalists is said to beat presentnegotiating
for the purchase of a vast tract of land
up the north fork of the Kettle river.
This syndicate is represented by Dr.
Cook of Duluth, Minn., who in company with Albert Whiteside, a professional timber cruiser, is now looking over the timber lands preparatory
to making a report on the same. Dr.
Cook is a brother-in-law of Fred Reed,
the city engineer. Mr. Reed, taking
advantage of the week's vacation
allowed him by the city council,' has
accompanied this party on their timber inspecting trip. It is estimated
that the proposed deal will include
several valuable blocks of timber land.
The timber . is principally cedar, fir
and yellow pine. Should this deal be
satisfactorily arranged, it is understood that 'extensive mills will be
erected in the upper north fork
district
Scholarships Offered
Two recent events at the coast will
go a long way towards uniting British
Columbia educationally with the eastern provinces of Canada. As it has
been intimated by the educational
authorities of the province, and by the
government, that no steps towards the
founding of a provincial university
may be expected for some years to
come, it is of great importance that
the connection between the high school
of British Columbia and the Canadian
university should be made as close
and intimate as possible, not only for
the sake of prospective western students at eastern seats of learning, but
for the sake of maintaining high standards and ideals for the schools.
A. C. Flumerfelt, of Victoria, has
given a two year's scholarship, tenable
at either Toronto or McGill university
to be competed for by students who
have already taken the courses of the
first two years in arts in British
Columbia high schools. The scholarship entitles the holder to $250 a year
for two years, a sum sufficient to cover
a student's expenses for the six months
of the college year.
The B. C. Alumni Association of
Queens university of which Sir Henri
G. July de Lotbiniere is president, and
Principal .Burns of the normal school
is secretary, has now founded a
scholarship to be competed for by
British Columbia students. It entitles the winner to exemption from fees
during four years and to receive $126
a year for two years.
Queens has been the most conservative of the leading universities of Canada in the matter of expansion and
affiliation, but in the session of 1903-
04, there were more arts' students in
attendance at Queens than at either
Toronto or. McGill, the figures for the
three leading instituions being, of
matriculated arts undergraduates:
Queen's, 474; Toronto, 461; McGill,
185. The total number of students at
Queen's in all faculties is about 1000.
The next best thing for British Columbia, if a provincial university is at
present unattainable, is to form alliances with Canadian universities and
secure the best possible terms for British Columbia students.

it appears, were not as successful in
their quest as they had anticipated,
and Mr. Farmer was the only member of the party who staked any
land. Mr. Farmer says that prairie
land in that section is scarce, and
some of that which he located will
have to be cleared. He came out by
the Bella Coulee route to the coast.

The Anaconda, (B.C.) News reports
an epidemic of bears in that vicinity.
It says: It seems that bears are at
present comparatively numerous on
the hills some distance back from town.
Chas. Johnson, who was prospecting
up near Spencer's ranch, was awakened from his sleep about 3 a. m. some
time ago by a big black bear taking a
ham from a box he had nailed on a
tree about five feet from the ground.
He picked up his gun and soon shot
the animal. Some weeks ago Geo.
Cook, doing assessment on a claim not
far from town, had his tent cleared of
provisions by a silvertip bear. Robert

ore i%--**,„bigb-grade copper. The
surface showing on this claim is the
beet in the camp, as a good grade of
copper ore can be picked up almost
anywhere. Messrs. Hill and Minion
deserve a great deal of credit for
their persistency in developing the
property.

FRIDA\, AUGUST 18, 1905
There are strong indications that
the price of coal oil is soon to be advanced. The following has recently
appeared in tho guise of a New York
news dispatch iu all the big dailies:
" In the last three months John D.
Rockefeller has been giving away
money faster than the Standard Oil
brought it to him. Standard Oil today declared a dividend of $6 a share
amounting to $6,000,000. Of this
Rockefeller will get $2,400,000 as his
share next month. Rockefeller's dis-
bursments for the quarter that brought
him in $2,400,000 have heen about
SI 1,500,000 or $9,000,000 more than
his income. In all Rockefeller will
probably recuive $1.6,000,0)0 this
year as his share of Standard Oil. If
his other investments yield him sl'\-
000,000 his total income will be
$20,000,000. Within three months
he has given away 811,500,000. In
the preceding five months he gave
away about $2,500,000, or a total of
$14,000,000 so far in 190;j, if he
makes the $50,000,000 gift to Chicago
university the total will be8(M,000,000
at least fbr the year, or about two and
a half times his income." Some of the
papers printing the above entertain
the fear that John may soon become a
pauper.
SUNSET SAUNtERINGS
Lord Arthur Rainey is all at sea as
to his official status. A few weeks ugo
he received word from Victoria stating that he had resigned as a member
of the lioard of Boundary creek licensing commissioners. This was news to
him at the time. Yesterday he received a letter from Attorney-General
Wilson cautioning him against voting
for too many licenses, as t<lis course
would have a tendency to incouven-
ienco thc public. It will probably
take a Philadelphia lawyer to unravel
tho mystery.
Forest fires have lieen doing considerable damage in the Boundary for the
last few days. Tho fire that has been
burning near the Buckhorn mine, in
South Deadwood camp, spread and
has been burning on the hills around
the B.C. Copper smelter. Rain is badly
wanted.
A fire also got started in Skylark
camp that threatened to do serious in
jury, but today is in hotter shape.
Men from some of the high grade
mines in that locality wore sent out to
fight the fire, and manager McEachran,
of the Cascade sub-station, had a
force fighting the fire for a couple of
days or more, to prevent interference
with the compunys power line from
Phoenix to Greenwood. Several men
were also sent out from the Granby
mines to keep close watch on the fire
and do whatever they could to prevent
it spreading up the hill to the vicinity
of the mines, No rain has fallen, but
the fire in this direction seems to have,
spent itself to a large extent.
The Boundary Creek board of licensing commissioners will hold a meeting
in Midway on Saturday to consider
several applications for licenses which
have been made, but against the issuing of which tho citizens of Midway
have protested in a petition to the
board.
Situation Wanted—General housework; or kitchen work in hotel,
restaurant or private family. Address
E. S. T, this office.
A Bad Bruise
Often causes a good deal of trouble.
The best cure is a prompt application
of Nerviline, which instantly stops the
pain, prevents swelling, removes all
blackness and discoloration. Nerviline
is antiseptic—prevents blood poisoning. No liniment so strong, so penetrating, so swift to destroy pain. You
miss a lot of comfort by not using
Poison's Nerviline. For nearly fifty
years it has been the standard afmily
liniment of Canada.

Unless a man iB satisfied with less
than three square meals a day, he
should never attempt to manufacture
poetry.
A man who thinks a woman can be
happy with a 98 cents hat he sees advertised, better remain a bachelor.
Some men are poor because they are
honest, and some are honest because
they are rich and can afford it.
A bicycle built for two is not in it
for a minute with a rocking chair built
for one but occupied by two.
When a man says you are too smart
to be fooled, look out, for he is about
to spring a scheme to fool you.
Faith-cure physicians are wise, as
they expect their patients te furnish
the faith and cure themselves.
A young man imagines that he is
engaged in a game of flirtation until he
wakes up finding himself married.
A small man is sometimes a big
nuisance.
Some men are as hard to get along
with as balky horses.
Wearing Away Your Lungs?
Yes, and your strength too. Stop
coughing and get rid of that catarrh.
The only remedy is Catarrhozone, which
goes to the diseased tissues along with
air you breathe; it can't fail to reach
the source of the trouble; it's bound
to kill the germs, and as for healing
up sore places, nothing can surpass
Catajrhozone. If you don't get instant relief and ultimate cure you will
at least yet your money back, for Catarrhozone is guaranteed to cure catarrh in any part of the system. You
run no risk—therefore use Catarrhozone—at our expense if not satisfied.

Vou Melancholy Women!
Can't even sleep—restless day and
night—brooding over imagined trouble all the time. The disease isn't in
the brain, but in the blood, which is
thin and innutritions. Do the right

Just take Ferrozone; it turns everything you eat into nourishment, consequently blood containing lots of non

PRINTS all the news of the
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news, ltr is the
only twice-a-week paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
or controlled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a combination of merchants
to be used as a means of lauding their own wares, to the
detriment of their rivals.
The Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. He does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
. different parties about what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads The Sun twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and' is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the
Boundary.
