A communication was read from
\V. H. Kent, of the British Columbia Telephone company, Btating that
his company had never agreed to

which ho complained of the rate
charged for light in the manse. . In
the discussion that followed it was

unless-the whole city was plaped on
the metre system.
A communication from A. C. Sutton, counsel for Tom McLaughlin,
was read, asking for" a rebate on the
Province hotel license, which was
cancelled by the board of licensing

committee was instructed to investigate the subject and to bring in a
report at the next meeting.

It has now been practically settled
that the Bonnington Falls Power
company will have a high-tension
line foi the transmission of electric
power to all Boundary mining and
smelting'centres before many more
months have passed. Mr. F. \V.
Guernsey, the engineer of the company, has been in Grand Forks and
other Boundary points during the
past few days looking over the field,
and it has been learned from a thoroughly reliable source that all that
now remains to be done before actual
construction work is commenced is
to serure the right-of-way and to
make the survey. It is understood
that the pole line will be built from
Bonnington Falls as far west as Midway.
The Boundary Falls smelter is
short of power at present, and Manager Pemberton has contracted with
the Bonnington Falls company to
take 2000 horsepower as Boon as the
line is completed to that place.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
A pleasant party was held at the
home ot Carl Wolfram, machinist at
thc Granby smelter, near Observation mountain, last Saturday evening, in which about fourteen couples
participated. Mr. Wolfram bad intended to make the event a full-dress
affair, but the guests conceived the
idea of giving him a genuine surprise by apparelling themselves in
their meanestgarments, thus converting their host's praiseworthy intention into a rag-time surprise party.
However, everybody had just as
good a time as if they had been attired in evening dress and the most
immaculate white. Dancing to excellent music was the principal
amusement, supplemented by cards
and vocal music. An excellent
luncheon was served at midnight,
after which the guests departed for
their respective homes.
Mrs. W. A. Williams, who has
been in ill-health for some time, left
today for California in order to regain her lost strength.
"Coolgardio" Smith intends to
start next week for Franklin camp,
where he will put men to work on
his Banner claim.
E. E. Spraggett and Chas. McAl
ljster are clearing and repairing the
Franklin camp road.
Jas..A. Murray has been awarded
the contract of furnishing the public school with CO cords of wood at
$3.5(1 per cord.
A number of residences are being
erected by parties who recently purchased ten-acre tracts on tbe Covert
estate.
& Kettle Valley Line to Be
Known as the Spokane (British
Columbia Railway.
Will leach tbe New
Wllbln Three Years, Says
J. Hill.
Road Will Be Extended to Spokane
at an Estimated Cost ot
ft       $3,500,000.
The Republic & Kettle Valley
Railway company,coininnnly known
as thc "Hot Air" line, has changed
its name to the Spokane & British
Columbia Railway company,! and,
has increased its capital stock from.
81,000,000 to $5,000,000, says the
Spokesman-Review. The increase
in the cap.italizat.ion is made for the
purpose of providing for the extension of the road irom Republic to
Spokane.
The surveyors of the road have
been in*lhc field all winter and have
reached Spokane. They surveyed
up the Spokane river from Columbia
river, and have joined their lines to
tho old roadbed of the Seattle, Lake
Shore & Eastern. One of the engineers of tho party says the maximum grade from thc Columbia river
to Spokane, according to tbeir survey, is 1 per cent. There is a 2 per
cent grade at Republic.
The company as reorganized has
\V. T. Beck for president and J. E.
McFarland for secretary, both of Republic, Wash.
It is known tbat the owners of the
Kettle Valley lines have had this extension in mind for a number of
years. When the road was opened
between Grand Forks and Republic,
three years ago, a delegation of Spokane business men attended the
formal ceremonies. One of the high
officials of the company then . confidently expressed the belief that the
road would build into Spokane. He
suid tHere was no other logical future fo,1 it.
The enterprise has proved a bad
investment. It lias hardly paid
operating expenses fur a part of the
time, und tie conviction of thc owners that further heavy investment i-
needed to make good their original
venture has ovidehtly grown stronger from year to year.
The route of the survey is down
the San Poil river frombltepublic to
the Columbia river, across the river
on a steel bridge below Hellgate,
then up the river on the soulh side
to the mounth.of the Spokane
river and up that stream to Spokane.
The climb out of the canyon of the
Spokane river will be made at Le-
Pray's bridge, 211 miles below that
eity. The route touches Crescent and
Welch on tbe way to opokone.
The present stretch of the line is
45 miles long. The money to build
tho road, over §1,000,000, was furnished largely hy the Dominion
Permanent Trust company, of Toronto, at the instance of Messrs.
Stratton & Holland. Thc additional
money for the extension to Spok'ane
will probably come from England.
The road will be 140 miles long from
Spokane to Republic, and is estimated to cost §3,500,000.
Over One Hundred Miles on the Eastern End Will Be Constructed
■   This Summer.
D. A. McRae, of  Greenwood, lias
been visiting in the city this week.
James I. Hill, president of tho
Great Northern, stated in New York
last week that it was the intention
ofthe V., V. & E. company to build
to the Pacific coast as quickly as thc
surveys can be completed and ttie
work of construction oan be curried
out. It is expected that over one
hundred miles on the eastern end,
where the surveys are nearly ready,
will be built during 1905, and that
the whole road to the New Westminster bridge will be finished with
in three years. An amalgamation
of the Hill interests, including the
Port Guichon-Sydney connection
with Victoria, may then he expected'
From the above statement, it appears certain that thc company intends to complete the road as far
west as Princeton during the com
ing summer.

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Harold Nelson and his company
gave an excellent performance of
"Richelieu" to a larges audience in
the Grand Forks opera house last
Tuesday night. The play was lavishly and correctly costumed, and
the stage settings were exceptionally
elaborate./ Mr. Nelson as the crafty
cardinal, showed marked improvement over his interpretation of tbe
character in this city three years
ago. and his conception of the part
left little to be desired. Helene
Scott, as Julie de Mortimer, anil
Clifford Lane Bruce, as Adrien de
Matiprat, as usual gave intelligent
portrayals of their roles. Thc other
membrs of tbe company acquitted
themselves creditably. Taken all in
all, it was an artistic presentation of
the popular classic, and the audience manifested its approval by
applauding liberally.
Grand Forks Federal Labor Union
will move from its present location
in thc Morrison block to the Eagle's
ball next Wednesday evening. After
the moving and business meeting, a
house-warming party will be given.
John Temple,of thcGranby hotel,
returned to the city Sundny evening,
after spending a week in Spokane.
The new briquetting plant at thc
Mother Lode smelter for treating
four years' aceamulation of Hue dust
is now ready for business, and will
be operated night and day until such
time as the paescnt supply is exhausted. It is expected this will
take about one year.
The Ladies of the Maccabees will
give a progressive whist party and
entertainment in Eagles' ball next
Thursday evening, April 6th. Besides cards, a musical program will
be rendered. Supper is to be served,
and an admission fee of 25 cents will
be charged.
At about 8;30 this morning flames
were discovered to be issuing from the
roof of the Victoria hotel and un alarm of fire was turned in to headquarters, the department responding promptly. Chief of Police Sheads,
Chris. Coughlan and Joe Burhee, who
were near the Victoria at the time,
were the first to arrive on the scene,
closely followed by Chief Savuge, who
was oil'duty, and the other members
of the department.
The fire had gained quite a headway hy the time the firemen arrived
and sheets of Hames shot from the
roof and the third-story windows of
the building. In an incredibly short
time, however, four streams of water
played on them with telling effect and
in about half an hour the fire wus under control. The firemen worked
like Trojans and in about an hour's
time the flames were extinguished.
It is very fortunate that a perfect
calm prevailed at" the time. Had
there been a strong wind blowing the
whole block would undoubtedly been
destroyed, if not the greater portion
of the business centre of the city.
The chief and firemen of the volunteer department Ut entitled to a great
deal of credit for the intelligent manner in which they fought the Hames,
and the lire demonstrated the fact
that Grand Fcrks has a department
of which she can feel justly proud.
The loss to building and goods is
estimated at from $1500 to .*?2000,
the greatest damage being done by
water. Fred Russell, of the Victoria
bar, is the heaviest loser. Peter Pare's
and Bob Pribilsky's barber shops were
also badly damaged by water. The
fire originated between the ceiling aniL
roof of Peter Pare's barber shop.

Jas. Cowie has secured a position
in the mechanical department of the
Granby smelter.
The Sun man happened to be taking a stroll in tbe vicinity of the
cemetery last Sunday, and noticed
that the fence around nearly the entire plot had been razed by wind
and old age. If it is the intention
of the citizens to continue using the
present buiying grounds, the fence
should be repaired at once, in order
to keep animals from prowling
among thc graves

TUESDAY, APRIL 4, 1905
The customs receipts of the, Dominion for the nine months ending
March 31, wero $30,916,179, compared wiih $30,103,285 for the same
time last year, an increase of $752,
916. The receipts for the month of
March were 83,094,161, an increase
of 8134,909 over March, 1904.
Concluded from First Page.
usual batch of accounts were ordered
paid.
Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that the new pump would cost, laid
down in the city, about S1800, but
that when it is installed the corporation will have something that
can be depended upon. It will be
be shipped in about six weeks He
recommended the extension of the
4-inch main on Victoria avenue. The
estimates of the department for the
current year were placed at 816,210.
On motion of Aid. McCallum and
Brown, the report was accepted and
thc recommendation adopted.
The water and light committee
was empowered to mnke satisfactory
arrangements with the Yale hotel
in regard to rates for light. If an
agreement can't be arrived at on any-
other basis, tbe installation of a metre would be permissable.
Aid. Cusson, chairman of tbe board
of works, reported the estimates of
bis department for thc current year
to be 81200, which included the
graveling of Winnipeg avenue in
front of the public school building.
In connection with these estimates,
Aid. McCallum said he bad received
| a letter from Cooper Bros, saying
that the subscription for free work
on the Columbia street bridge hnd
been completed.
Aid. Brown, chairman of the
health and relief committee, placed
the estimates of his department at
$800.
Tbe school estimates were then
considered and disposed of. Aid. McCall thought they should be pared
down somewhat Of course, the
general estimates, such as salaries,
etc., could not be touched. But the
$2500 item for a gymnasium wns
more of a luxury than n necessity,
and tbe city wus too young und loo
poor for such nn adjunct to the
school. Thc fence would be built
more to protect tbe hedge to be
planted thnn ns nn ornament, and
could be a cheap ulluir. The mayor
was -xlso of thc opinion that the
building of tbe gymnasium could be
postponed for a year or two. This
cut the estimntes down 89,795.50.
Mr. Hanington, who was present,
didn't make any very serious objections to this arrangement, and on
motion of Aid. McCallum and Cusson, the school estimates were adopted, after cutting out the item for
thc gymnasium nnd reducing the
appropriation for the fence to $6011.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
McCallum, nil estimates were accepted ns presented.
Taylor it Fisher made n proposition to the council to drain and
clean out McCallum's slough in exchange for thc exclusive right to cut
ice on tho snme for n period of three
yeatB.    While nil the members  of
the council were of the opinion that
the slough ought to be drained, yet
they thought Messrs. Taylor &. Fisher
were asking for something the council no right to grant. The city solicitor gave it as his opinion that the
request came under the head of
franchises, and would require a special by-law to grant it. The matter
was therefore dropped.
The street sprinkling question was
then taken up. Mayor Hammar
favored free water for lawns, flowers,
trees andstrcetsprinkling, butnotfor
raising vegetables, and nono of the
felt inclined to oppose this policy
On motion of Aid. Cusson and Hutton, it was decided thnt the city fur-
nisb the wagon, tank and watej,
provided the merchants paid for the
sprinkling. ,
Aid. Clements and Brown offered
a resolution to tho effect that all Arrearages of taxes collected besetaside
for the sinking fund. Tbe motion,
was opposed by thc mayor and Aid.
McCallum on the ground that the
sinking fund only earned 8 per cent
interest,whereas if the city borrowed
money from tbe bank it would have
pay 8 per cent. Thc resolution was
defeated, 4 to 2, the understanding being that all monies so collected, and not absolutely needed for
current expenses, be set nside for
the sinking fund.
On motion, the council decided to
hold a court of revision on May 15,
at 2 p. m.       «
The council decided tn engage in
the sbade-treeplnnting business, and
a -special committee, consisting of
the mayor, Aid. McCullum, Hutton
and Cusson, was appointed to take
charge of the enterprise.
The council then adjourned.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
Grand Forks Baseball Enthusiasts to
Reorganize a Club on Thursday Evening.
Development Work on the McKinley
Mine to Be Resumed This
Week.
A meeting will be held in the
Pantheon club next Thursday evening, April (ith, for the purpose of reorganizing the Grand Forks Baseball
club, and everybody interested in
this popular sport is requested to

organization may be maintained
here.
How to Get Consumption
90 per cent of the 'lungers' cbntract
consumption by allowing.power of resistance to fall so low that a favorable
condition for the development of the
haccilli is provided. In a healthy
system consumption can't take root.
But where there is weakness and debility, there you find tuberculosis. For
developing strength and building up
the weak, nothing equals Ferrozone.
It makes the blood nutritious and the
nerves enduring. The way it converts fond into nutriment, the appetite it give*-, is surjr sing. Just what
the man verging on consumption needs
—that's Ferrozone. If tired/andwsak
don't put off. Fifty cents buys a box
of fifty tablets—at all dealers.

persons Who Are Deemed Gnlltr-
fjuiil They Prove Themselves to Be
Innocent and Who Can De Imprisoned For Comnillllns No Offense.
It used to be a principle of British
few that a man Is innocent until he 1b
Broved guilty. Though this Is Btlll upheld by justice generally, certain per-
■vus know to their cost thut lu their
own cases tbe principle is reversed.
To one section of the community tbe
law says, wltb no uncertain voice, "You
are guilty unless you can prove yourself innocent." Tbe victim of this rule
Is he who Is "known to the police,"
who is "suspected of Intent to commit
• crime," and ot late years quite a
number of persons huve been sent to
prison under an act which is culled tbe
"prevention of crimes act" on tbe mere
suspicion that their conduct Is not what
tt should be.
The act operates against persons who
have already been In prison, aud Its existence makes it a very hard task for
an ex-convict to enjoy real freedom.
Any person who has served a term
of imprisonment may be arrested,
without a warrant, if his conduct does
not favorably impress a policeman, and
Bummarily convicted.
For instance, tbe men charged with
complicity in the Conduit street jewel
robbery some years ago were not convicted of tbeir offense, but tbe evidence given was that their mode of
life was "probably dishonest." This
was accepted by the judge, who sentenced them to a year's imprisonment,
not, be it noticed, for any crime, but
because they were "probably" guilty
nnd could not prove themselves Innocent.
Another man only a few weeks ago
was sentenced to eighteen months' imprisonment for loitering. He was discovered by the police waiting about
some quiet byway of Chelsea and, hov-
lng been recognized as an ex-convict,
was promptly taken in charge.
Another case of crimeless criminal
was that of the youth who wns sentenced to eighteen months' Imprisonment for merely having In his possession implements made for the purpose
of coining. The man had not coined
anything, but it seemed fairly clear
that he had thoughts of doing so.
The blow of this prophetic system of I
prosecution, however, falls most heavily on the man who has already been
convicted.   Such a person finds It al-
most impossible to shake ;0ff tlio law.
During his ticket of leave period If
he docs not report himself regularly
he is liable to be sent back. Kot only
this, but if nny action of his strikes
the police as suspicious it is only necessary, according to the act, to state
that there are "reasonable grounds for
believing thnt he gains his living by
dishonest means."
Not only are ticket of leave men liable to unexpected arrest for no definite
crime, but also any convict whatever.
For seven years after the expiration
of the sentence passed on him If lie refuses to give bis name or address or
gives a false one. or if lie Is found In
any plnce, whether public or private,
•without being able to satisfy the court
why he was there, he Is liable to a
year's imprisonment.
A social gathering of crlininnis In
the east end was some years ago suddenly Interrupted by the entrance of a
well known detective. The company
Wns only engaged In the harmless occupation of smoking nnd chatting,
though, doubtless, only between
crimes.  Said the detective:
"A watch was stolen yesterday from
a gentleman in Fife street. Now, one
of you knows where it Is. Dnlcss you
deliver It up in twenty-four hours the
whole lot of you will he run in tomorrow for being alive."
Being Interpreted, this meant that
the detective had a special reason for
recovering the wntcli for his client, nnd
to save himself the ordinary process of
searching lie had adopted this method
of intimidation.
By this threat he mennt that the
whole company could be charged under the "prevention of crimes net" on
suspicion of not earning un honest living or for loitering with felonious Intent.
Quite recently In a well known civil
lawsuit the plaintiffs position wns discredited hy a detective witness who
came into court and testified thnt he
was "on the market."
This, being Interpreted; meant thnt
the plaintiff's habits hud not met with
the approval of the legion of plain
clothes detectives who are known to
hnuut London's streets. The methods
cf these gentlemen nre not confined to
the actual detection of crimes so much
as to the general watching <>r persons
passing to nnd fro In certain streets.
One of these detectives says that he
spends the greater part of his time
daily in walking up anil down a crowded thoroughfare and fixing lib eyes nn
any person whose progress nloug the
street does uot suggest urgent business. '
"If when I catch his eye." said the
detective, "this person stares back at
mc or turns to look after I have passed
I know that he's a wrong 'un nnd
watch bim carefully."

Sir James Watson's Opinion
He says that the commonest of all
disorders, and one from which few escape, is catarrh. Sir James firmly
believes in local treatment, which is
best supplied by Catarrhozone. No
case of catarrh can exist where Catarrhozone :'s used; it is a miracle
worker, relieves almost instantly and
cures after other remedies fail. Other
treatments can't reach the diseased
) arts like Catarrhozone because it goes
to the source of the trouble along with
the air you breathe. Catarrhozone is
free from cocaine, it leaves no bad
after-effects, it is simply nature's own
cure. Accept no substitute for Catarrhozone, which alone can cure catarrh.    H. E. Woodland, druggist.
