Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, January 20, J905
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
Associated Bodies of Eastern
B. C. Meet Soon in
Nelson.
Grand Forks Should Speak
Up for Subsidy for North
Fork Road.
The organization ol • department
of mines, with a minister from British Columbia, will be uijjed on the
federal government by the associated boards of trade of Eastern British Columbia, whose delegates nre
to meet in Nelson either late tt.is
month or early in February.
The delegates will also discuss the
imposition of a duty on United
States rough lumber, the best methods to encourage the production of
zinc in this Province, the preservation of the remains of the forests
from fire, the cancellation of the
numerous reserves on valuable land,
and the need of the Provincial government payiqg better attention to
surveys of land, and especially to
guard against the issue of duplicate
titles.
The boards of trade will also discuss the railway needs of the Pro,-
vince, chreflly as regards the giving
of assistance to'--the Coast-Kootenay
line and to the Kootenay Central
railway.
The boarda, qf ..trade of Grand
Forks, Greenj-to-jo], Phoenix, Nelson,
Rossland, Cascade, kaslo,' Fernie,
CranhrooH, (UmtjSteele, Moyie and
Trail have lirrt'l nntiflril of the intended hoMap*"***.:. the convention
and asked to send delegates.
Now is a good ti,D}8 tor the Grand
ForkB board of., trade to take a new
lease of life, appphit delegates to the
convention, and put up such a convincing argument as would induce
the Provincial government to grant
that subsidy foi* a railway up the

campaign, ti'ut vn*ich has not as yet
been'gl&nted. -The building of that
road, is .of more importance in the
immediate, and future benefits to
Grand Forks than all the above
mentioned public questions, and this
is a favorable opportunity for boosting for it.
public questions arc essentially
moral and religious. And it must
deal with politics as with every
problem, from the Christian standpoint, and under the stress and control of the principles and precepts
taught by our Divine Master. The
business of the church is not only
the salvation of the individual, but
the salvation cf the people from all
kinds of evil. It was in this spirit,
and with these convictions, that we
said what we did on the subject of
civic morality. The Methodist pulpit has no apology to make, because
we believe it to be our solemn duty
to do our utmost by example and
precept to bring about those reforms
which are necessary to the perfect
health and prosperity of our city.
Our attitude on the,subject was
based on the convictioiTpf duty and
responsibility. And we will continue, to speak out our convictions
on moral questions with no uncertain emphasis. Wc believe that we
should take an intelligent interest in
everything that pertains to the good
of the community, and that nothing
can absolve us from our duty in this
regard. And that was our only motive for calling the earnest attention
of those who did us the honor of listening to us on the subject of civic
morality.   Sincerely yours,
E. Manuel.

THE PEOPLE'S FORUM
To the Editor of The Sun.
Will you allow a space in your
paper for me to say that I have been
both amused and annoyed by remarks that have been recently made
on the attitude of two of the pulpits
of this city on the recent civic election?
There is no subject at the present
time that calls more loudly for plain,
uncompromising language than the
subject spoken to from the pulpits of
these churches at that time. If the
Christian pulpits of the community
do not speak out against the evils
with which we are afflicted, no word
of denunciation will come from any
other quarter, and thc evils will
never be lessened or destroyed.
The church is not a political institution—not even a politico-moral
organization,   Its viewpoints of all

NEW BUSINESS FIRM
On Wednesday last N. McLellan ik
Co., the flonr and feed merchants,
disposed of their entire business to J.
H. McNeil, the Greenwood feed man,
and E. C. Henniger & Co., of this
city. The new firm have also taken
an option on Mr. McLellan's store
and lot, and in all probability a transfer of this property will also be mode
within a short time. The new parties
will take possession of the business on
the first of next month.
Mr. McLellan has been engaged in
feed business for ulxiul eight years,
and haa been very successful. Prior
to his coming to Grand Forks, he CO-
tired to the fastidious tastes of the
horses in the Slocan country and Cos
caile City with such signal ability that
he amussed a small fortune iu these
places. He has also,. he says, mode
money every day he has been in business in this city.. For the present he intends to take a . wi'beamed vacation,
as he has been in the'business-harness
for over eight years, with few holi
doys to vary the monotony. The Sun
hopes that Mr. McLellan will decide
to continue to make Grand Forks I
place of residence, and that lie will
soon re-embark in commercial life, as
he is too public spirited a citizen to
lose.

"The Scots of Grand Forks are laying themselves out to have a real
Caledonian jollification on Burns'

ensure the jollity have called upon
Nelson. The Nelson clans ire sending over George M. Gunn, thc piper,

A prominent hotel man of the West
ward ran a little short of ice the other
day. As it was only a few days until his summer's supply would be put
up, he didn't think it worth while to
purchase another lot, and, with the intention of economizing, shouldered a
bow and other indispensible tools and
started for the river to cut a week's
supply. After three hours' hard work
he thoapSt he hod succeeded in dislocating a ton. or less, of ice, and started
for home. ' But he had also succeeded
in thoroughly drenching himself, and
as he wended his way homeward he
stopped in ot brother hotelkeeper's
inn to warm up. This warming-up
process was repeated two or' three
times. When he reached his own
hostelry he figured that the ice, f.o.b.,
had cost him three hours' work, one
ruined suit of clothes, and $15 for
warming up.

Last Wednesday.
Regular Train Service Will
Be Inaueurated About
February 1st.
The first coach to arrive in Phoenix over the Great Northern branch
from Grand Forks reached that city
on Wednesday, when Superintendent Morgan, of the Spokane Falls &
Northern, in his private car, accompanied by Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the V., V. & E. railway,
visited the mining city on a tour of
inspection.
Mr. Morgan states that the road
will be open for passenger service on
February 1st, when a new schedule
from Spokane will be arranged, considerably cutting down the time between the different Boundary points
and Spokane. Trains will leave
Phoenix about 9:30 a.m., arrive at
Grand Forks about an hour later,
and considerable time cut down between here and Marcus. Going
north, the train will probably reach
about 5 p. m.
During his visit at Phoenix Mr.
Morgan inspected the track and roadbed and the new passenger station,
recently erected there by M. S. Mar
tin, of Grand Forks, and he pronounced everything satisfactory.

FRIDAV, JANUARY 20, 1905
It must have caused an apprehensive shudder in the average Canadian to learn that our late governor-
general, Lord Minto, in a speech at
London stated that the efforts of tbe
United States to make better trade
arrangements with this country were
done with thc desire to steal Canada
from Great Britain. It would scenl
thnt somo of our crown representatives go home to England after their
term presumably at the head of affairs in this country knowing less of
this Canada of ours than they did
before coming over here, which is
somewhat surprising in view of the
opportunities they have for learning
something of this country and its
particular characteristics.
Thc Spokesman-Review of Thursday, in editorially commenting on
the Minto speech, hands out some
pretty hard knocks to those Americans residing in Canada through the
necessity of getting away from the results of their misdeeds in the United
States, and who-take upon themselves the burden of expressing
American public opinion on questions in general and upon the relation of Canada to that country in
particular. That class of people who
are usually the most outspoken upon
subjects of that nature are generally
of no account in the world which
they profess to be in a position to
represent in the matter of public
opinion.
Reports still continue to reach
here of the lucky strikes made by
former Grand Forksites in theTona-
pah gold fields; but it is noticed
(hat throughout the excitement those
old prospectors and others who have
an interest in some of these common
old Boundary copper and iron properties are wise enough to stay right
with them for the. present.
Strong influences are at work in
tbe Dominion parliament to create
two new Provinces,  embracing the
territory between Manitoba nnd the
eastern boundary of British Cului'i -
bin. The more western of the two
would doubtless be culled Alberta,
while several names are suggested as
the proper title for the other.
The City of Toronto is apparently
destined to soon push Montreal from
its position as the premier eity of
Canada, for during the past couple
of years the former has made vo*
derful gains in regard to cuiiinier. e
and population, which latter is new
placed at 293,000.
In the Dominion parliament 82.),-

During the past five years the
Boundary mines have produced $12,-.
500,000 worth of ore, valuing thc
2,500.000 tons taken out at $5 per
ton on an average. Looking at the
amounts produced each succeeding
year, one can see that the amount
broduced yearly will soon reach prodigious figures. In 1900, when,
practically, ore was first mined in
the Boundary, it amounted to 100,-
000 tons ; in 1901, 390,000 ; 1902,
507,000 tons; 1903, 685,000 tons,
and in 1904, 827,000 tons, or 75 per
cent increase over the output five
years ago.

I spent a small fortune on different
remedies, but the only one with real
merit was Nerviline. I used a few
bottle of Nerviline and was perfectly
cured. I can recommend Nerviline as
a sure cure for sciatica; it's excellent
also for rheumatism and neuralgia."

CATARRHAL DEAFNESS IS CAUSED
By a thickening of the lining membrane of the middle ear owing to prolonged inflammation from catarrhal
germs. The only cure is fragrant,
healing Catarrhozone one which is oar*
: i d by the air you breathe to the remotest parts of the throat and ear ; it
reaches the source of the trouble and
cures deafness permanently. Every
sufferer from impaired hearing should
use Catarrhozone which has effected
many wonderful cures. You simply
breuthe its healing medicated vapor—
very easy and pleasant. Do this and
your hearing will be restored. Catarrhozone never fails; it is guaranteed. Two months' treatment for 81,
at II. E. Woodland's drugstore.
Ill* Paris DeteetlTea.
The Paris dectectlve bas a great
reputation (or tracking down tbe criminal. He bas achieved tbat distinction,
first, by bis native wit and resource;
secondly, by the extended use be
makes of tbe Informer, who may be
of the criminal class himself. Numerous are bis disguises. One dny be
bas tbe clothes as well as the speech
and manners of a voyou, tbe next he
is on the race course, his accent changed as well as bis outward appearance
—a chic monsieur—engaged in watching the doings of a turf syndicate. As
an Instance of the modern methods of
the Paris Burete, one may mention tbe
half dozen motor cars wblcb it possesses and wblcb are always at the disposition of tbe force to proceed at once
to the scene of a tragedy or robbery.
The other day the automobile was used
with effect In a case of burglary of a
chateau at Versailles. The police had
news that the burglars themselves
were mounted In an automobile. They
gave cbase, proceeding by side roads,
until they came up with the offenders,
whs were promptly arrested and their
motor ear run off to La Fourriere, the
police pound of Paris, where Is gathered together the lost, stolen or strayed
it the domestic animal world, as well
is the oddest assortment of police
trephles.-WorId's Work.
The Grunting O*.
One of the largest of the mammalia
of Tibet Is tbe yak, or grunting ox.
Standing between five and six feet
high nt the shoulders, the bulk of this
Strange looking creature Is not a little
exaggerated by the enormous growth
of hair upon the lower part of the body
and tail. Beneath the outer coat, moreover, there Is a layer of fine wool
known as "puslilm," which Is highly
prized for the making of cloth.
