SENATOR'S VIEWS
Templeman   Gives   His Reasons for Favoring Hill's
Project
People ' Should  Welcome a
Road  Willing   to  Build
Without Aid
The Victoria Times' Ottawa correspondent has had an interview with
Senator Templeman in respect to
railway matters in British Columbia.
The senator complained about being
misquoted in Britisn Columbia in
reference to the Grand Trunk Pacific, and asked to be placed right,
"I find it a mistake," he said, "to
permit inaccurate statements in respect to one'8 views to go uncontradicted. Such statements are sometimes accepted as truths, and being
repeated by persons who are generally careful in representing the opin
ions of others, are accepted by the
public as authentic.
"Mr. Mara, at a recent meeting of
the Victoria board of trade, when
discussing the V., V. & E. bill now
before' parliament, is reported to
have said that I might be mistaken
in respect to the intentions of the
company, 'just as I had been mistaken before, when I said that the
Grand Trunk Pacific would begin
construction simultaneously at both
ends of its line.'
"While it may turn out that I am
placing too much reliance in the
promises of the V., V. & E. company to'construct its line in British
Columbia, I cannot admit that that
charge is sustained by the other statement respecting the Grand Trunk
Pacific. I have never said that the
Grand Trunk Pacific would begin
construction simultaneously at both
ends of the road, for the reason that
I never thought that the surveys
through the mountains could be
completed simultaneously with the
completion of the surveys through
the prairies.
"My views as to the V., V. & E.
application for an amendment to its
charter is that it should be granted,
and, if need be, unconditionally.
Mr. Hill has stated verbally and in
writing to me, as well as to others,
that the company will build one
hundred and sixty miles from Midway to Princeton this year. About
fifty miles of that ono hundred and
sixty will be in the state of Washington, and it will be located there,
not for the purposo of developing the
territory throngh which it will pass,
but because being so located it will
better serve the mining districts of
British Columbia by providing low
grades and resultant low freight
charges. Mr. Hill has also stated
that soon as a practical line to thc
coast has been iocated by his engineers he will build from Princeton to
the New Westminster bridge, through
Canadian territory. There is, it is
quite true, some question of the
feasibility of a low-grade line
through the Hope mountains, all in
Canadian territory to the coast, but
that point will be determined more
quickly by the V., V. & E. engineers
than by any other authority. And
in connection with this point let me
quote from a letter signed by Mr. J.
J. Hill, and dated May 17, as follows,
" 'With reference to commencing
work from Cloverdale cast, we are
quite ready to start work within two
years, and if the mountain conditions will permit, hope to have the
line finished within two years, i.e.,
two yearsifrom the coming fall.'
"This bare statement, it is true, is
not a binding guarantee; it is simply
the promise ot a prominent and successful railway builder. I accept it
for precisely what it is worth—that
is an expression of an intention that
it will be carried out if no insuperable
obstacles intervene. I take no stock
in the wild talk about Mr. Hill's intention to make Everett the terminus
of the V., V. & E., or about draining
the resources of British Columbia
into Washington state. According
to my view British Columbia should
welcome the building of railways, no
matter by whom they are built, and
its people should doubly welcome a
railway that is not asking or expecting financial aid. That is a new
thing in British Columbia, and it is
probably because it is unprecedented tbat some prominent members ot
the Victoria board of trade are incredulous enough to doubt the bona
fides of the promoters of such an ex-
raordinary enterprise and try to defeat it.
"The effect of the announcement
that the V., V. & E. would this year
-go to Princeton is already apparent.
The Canadian Pacific, I am credibly informed, will build this year
from Spence's Bridge to Nicola.
There is a subsidy from the Dominion for ubout 45 miles of this
road, whereas there is not one dollar
for the V., V. & E. extension to
Princeton."
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
As suggested by The Sun last
Tuesday, the Victoria Day football
game was postponed until tho contemplated general hospital is erected.
The Sun's tip on the bucking
broncho waa a winner. The Sun is
lie George Washington—it can't tell
a lie.
Some sneak-thief managed to get
away with a few armfuls of stationery from W. H. Itter tt Co.'s old
premises this week. May the same
he used for recording his sins.
Attention is directed to the advertisement, in this issue of The Sun,
of the department of public works,
Ottawa, calling for tenders for the
erection of a post office at Vancouver,
The warm weather today raised
thc water in the North Pork'about
two inches.
Bishop Dontenville, after holding
services in the Catholic cathedral
in this city, and also confirming a
large class, left for Phoenix and
Greenwood Wednesday noon.
Dr. Dickson, formerly of Pembroke, Out., arrived in thc city on
Tuesday, and has decided to locate
hero. He has taken the offices
formerly occupied by Dr. Kingston
in the Johnson block.
William Yolen Williams, formerly superintendent of tho Granby
mines, passed through the city last
Tuesday en route to Phoenix.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
Meritorious Irrigation Enterprise Completed on Covert's Ranch
Local Oddfellows Elect Officers for Last Six Months
of 1905
The most meritorious irrigation
enterprise every undertaken in this
valley has just been completed by
\V. H. Covert, the pioneer fruit
grower. About five years ago Mr.
Covert planned an open-ditch system, at an estimated cost of $0000.
This plan was afterwards altered,
and the work of putting in a covered pipe system was practically
begun in April of the present year,
and was finished last week. Nearly
three miles of coast fir pipe, bound
with heavy wire, has been laid, and
every purchaser of the numerous
acre-blocks sold now has water on his
premises, with all the conveniences
of the city resident who uses city
water. A test of the pressure of the
water was made by putting an
inch nozzle to the pipe at the
lower end of the orchard, and
the water shot fifty feet into the
air. The cost of installing this
system nas been considerably higher
than Mr. Covert originally estimated,
owning to his being handicapped in
many ways.
Mr. Covert was the first man to
demonstrate the adaptability of the
soil and climate of this valley tosuc-
■ e sful fruit growing. His big ranch
has long been the pride of the residents of the valley. Visitors of prominence to the city have invariably
been shown the big orchard as one of
our finest attractions. It js the strongest pi'oof that could possibly be produced that profitable fruit growing
can be successfully carried on in this
valley. Tho orchard now contains
about 11,000 trees, consisting of
apples, cherries, plums, peaches
pears, prunes and prunes; besides
all the varieties of berries. Mr.
Covert has labored with a great deal
of energy to bring the orchard
up to. its present splendid proportions. His faith anil enthusiasm in
the work he set out to accomplish
has spurred him on, and time has
amply justified bin judgment.
• It is a pity thnt, through no fault
of his own, Mr. Covert should have
been forced to subdivide this spied
tlid estate. He has put in tho best
years of his life bringing it up to its
present state of perfection, and now,
in his declining age, he should have
been allowed to Map the reward of
his industry.
The following officers were elected
last evening by Gateway Lodge No.
Hit, I.O.O.F., for the term beginning
July 1st and ending December 31st,
1905: Noble grand, Wm. B. Bower;
vice grand, Geo. II. Rutherford; recording secretary, Walter R. Dewdney; permanent secretary, A. B.
Hall; treasurer, R. Frache.
The finest display of pictures ever
exhibited in the city are to be seen
in W. H. Itter & Co.'s show window.
They have received on consignment
an   elaborate stock of artistic pic
tures, etc. The pictures will remain
in Grand Forks for one month only,
and after that time they will be forwarded to another town. They are
marked at eastern prices. Mr. Itter
says he thinks it will be necessary to
put un a couple of special policemen
for Saturday in order to keep thc
admiring public from crushing in bis
plate window.
Leslie Steele, of tho British Columbia .Telephone company, who
was stationed in this eity last fall,
came down with the Greenwood lacrosse elub on Victoria Day, and
rendered valuable assistance in de-
feuting the local team.
Blackbird, a valuable horse be
longing to G. W. Averill, was so
badly injured at the races on Victoria day by having a leg broken
that it was found necessary to kill
him. i
A. D. McPhee, superintendent of
the McKinley mine, returned to
Franklin camp this morning.
The Firemen's Benefit
The firemen's celebration on Victoria day proved to ho an unqtialfied
success, and the treasury of the department has been enriched to the
extent ol about $250. Tho weather
during the afternoon was ideal for
a successful field day, and thc events
were all hotly contested.
Thc lacrosse match between the
home team and the Greenwood club
proved to be a good exhibition of our
national game, and was closely
watched by a large and enthusiastic
crowd. The game, which abounded
in brilliant plays, was won by the
visitors by a score of 4 to 3.
The gentlemen's saddle race, half
mile heats, was won by Ginger, witl
B. McCartney up; Dr. Averill'sBlack
bird Becond, and John McLaren's
Dan third.
In the pony race Geo. Chappie'
Dexter  won   first prize,  and Roy
Powers' Kid second.
The bicycle race, half-mile, free
for all, was won by Joe Feeney, El
mer Ness second.
The boys' bicycle race, one-fourth
mile, for boys of 15 years and under,
was won by Francis Feeney, Jim
Graham second.
In the prospectors' race, 50 yards
and return, Archie Murray captured
first prize, and Johnny McLaren second.
Tho ladies' race, one-fourth mile,
was won by Mis™ Powers' Kid, May
Miller's Baldic second.
The slow horse race was won by
Tommy Fraser's Billy, Roy Pounder's Roan second.

Leslie Long proved an easy winner,
with Francis Feeney second,
The boys' three-legged race, 50
yards, for boys of 15 years and under, was won by Gilmoro and Gil-
more, with Murray and Floyd second.
The ball in the evening was one of
the most enjoyable ever held in the

Ore Is of a Better Grade Than
That Found in the Glory
Holes
A. D. McPhee, superintendent of
the McKinley mine, came -down
from Franklin camp on Wednesday
evening, and reported that the tunnel now being driven on the McKinley to crosscut the ledge at a depth
of 100 feet, had encountered the ore
body sooner than was anticipated.
The ore body has already been .
opened on the surface GO feet long,
00 wide, and 40 deep, and has thus
far given average values of about $15
per ton. Now that the ledge has
been tapped at a depth of 100 feet,
all doubt as to tho McKinley becoming one of the biggest mining propositions in the Boundary has been
effectually dispelled. The ore taken
from the tunnel is believed to be of
a higher grade than that found in
the surface quarries.
Geo. A. McLeod, the principal
owner, recently gave a bond for
$150,000 on the McKinley and Hanna claims, in Franklin camp. The
bond, which runs for a period of 18
months, was taken by Miles M.
O'Brien on behalf of a syndicate of
New York capitalists. The transfer
to the new owners also includes a
320-acre townsite and two water
rights, and is made on behalf of the
McKinley Mines, Ltd. Thc mines
are located 43 miles north of this
city, of which 34 miles is by a good
wagon road.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
Judge and Mrs. Leamy are expected to return to their homo in this
city about the first of next month
from New Westminster, where Mr.
Leamy has been in a hospital formed-
ical treatment. He has now almost
entirely recovered, after being in
poor health nearly all winter.
John R. Rutherford has returned
from a three months' visit in Smith
Falls, Ojit., and Montreal. Mrs.
Rutherford will remain in the cast
until next fall.
The massive stone and concrete
foundation for the new smokestack
at the Granby smelter has been completed. The stack will be of brick,
and is to be 150 feet in height.
Thc repairs to the wagon road near
Eagle City bas just been completed
by Supervisor E. Spraggett. The big
rock slide bas been covered up.
This is practically all the government work that will be done until
after the first of July, when the new
appropriation will be available.
Miss Lily Taylor returned Wednesday evening from a week's visit
in Spokane.
Miners' licenses expire on the "Jlet

FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1905
Thc advent of the Great Northern
in Britsh Columbia has sounded the death-knell to the subsidy
grab—in other words, to the system
of the government building the railway and then presenting it to a company to operate. If it accomplishes
nothing else, this alone should entitle it to the gratifude of the people
of the provinoe. But it also devcl-
opes the resources of the territory
through which runs. A heavily
subsidized railway can do no more.
Charter mongers do not look with
favor on the invasion of Southern
British Columbia by the Great
Northern. If it should become
the vogue to build railways in this
province without government assistance, there would be a decided drop
in the price paid for charters. It is
quite evident that the advent of the
V., V. & E. is a direct blow at another infant (?) home industry.
Nominations for alderman to fill
the vancancy existing in the Centre
ward will he made next Monday,
and the poll, if necessary, will be
taken on Thursday, the 1st prox.
It is a 10 to 1 bet that The Sun will
pick the winner after the candidates
have been placed in the field. It has
never failed to do so.
Mr. Charles Drinkwater does not
believe that the V., V. & E. will be
built to Vancouver. But Mr. Drink-
water is parliamentary solicitor for
tbe C.P.R.; and, besides, his name
is not suggestive of strength.
Now that it has demonstrated that
the McKinley is a big mining proposition, the next time we hear rumors
of a railway being built up the North
Fork they will in all likelihood be
verified by actual construction.
Ask the people of the Similkameen country whether or no the invasion of that district by the Great
Northern would benefit them.

The Root of Neuralgic Headache
Is an irritable condition of the
nerves caused by cold. Relief conies
quickly from Nerviline, the great pain
reliever of today. "I consider Nerviline a magical .lemedy for neuralgia,"
writes Mrs. E. G. Harris, of Baltimore. "But I never worry if Nerviline
is in the house. A few applications
never yet failed to kill the pain. I can
always recommend Nerviline for stiffness, lhenmatism and muscular pains."
In use nearly fifty years; try Nerviline
yourself.    H. E. Woodland, druggist.

Water In Yonr Blood?
Lots of people have thin, watery
blood—they eat plenty but don't
digest. When digestion is poor, food
isn't converted into nourishment—in
consequence the body rapidly loses
strength. To positively renew health,
nothing equals Ferrozone. It excites
sharp ajp.*tite—-makes the stomach
digest, forms life sustaining blood.
Abundant strength is sure to follpw.
If you need more vitality, extra energy, better nerves, then use Ferrozone, the medical triumph of the age.
Fifty cents buys a box of fifty chocolate coated Ferrozone tablets. H. E.
