A dispatch from Victoria states that
at the government caucus on Wednesday night the long-promised railway
policy was laid before the members attending ; that is, the first instalment
of the railway policy.
It provides for the building of the
Kootenay Central, and the extension
of the Columbia and Western from
Midway to Spence's Bridge, in all
about 450 miles of road, and all to be
built by the C. P, R., and all to be
finished within five years.

mile for the first five yeara, and after
that at 810,000.

lay another instalment before them on
Monday night. It is believed the second instalment will include a land
grant of not less than 15,000 acres per
mile to the Grand Trunk Pacific, and
that it will be cajried through the
house by Liberal votes.
In both The Times and The Colonist every day are letters advocating

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
A certain doctor in this city has
gained an enviable reputation for
officiating at the birth of the majority of the future generation in
this neighborhood. ..This fact caused
a school boy, also a resident of this
city, to probe into the matter; but
after a number of fruitless enquiries,
he was forced to adduce his own
reasons sor this state of affairs. He
became quite certain that the doctor
got his babies from Timothy Eaton,
of Toronto, at a big discount, by taking them in carload lots;
  s
Considerable dissati sfaction ha
been expressed by people who have
to cross the C. P. R. track near the
G. N. depot at night, on account of
the arc light at thiB dangerous point
being out of commission abotjt three
out of five nights, the''supposition
being that ..'twere is something defective about the mechanism of this
particular Imnrfi; as the others are
always in working order. An accident occurrffli. there some time ago,
and those 'having occasion to cross
the tracks there think that every
means should be taken to keep this
danger spot always illuminated.
Julius Ehrlict., manager 'tpr P.
Burns & Co. at Greenwood, is a guest
at the Yale today.
In the series of games being played
at Ottawa for the hockey championship of the world between the Ottawa
"Life in Relation to the State," will
be the subject on which Rev, J. R.
Robertson will preach next Sunday at
the evening service in Knox church.
A high-class concert will be given
at the Grand Forks opera house on
Easter Monday, April 24th, under the
auspices of Knox church Ladies' Aid.
The best local talent will be heard.

Colville Reveille: R. B. Thomas,
who has been visiting relatives here
for some time past, haB determined
to locate permanently in Colville.
He will form a partnership with bis
brother, ex-County Surveyor J. B.
Thomas, and engage in a general
land surveying and civil and mining
engineering business. Mr. Thomas
is well known to all the earlier residents, having arrived in the county
with the advent of the railway in
1889, and remaining until 1894,
serving one term as county surveyor.
Since then he h-'s resided in Ferry
county and Grand Forks, B. C, and
was engineer for the Granby Smelter
company during the construction of
their smelter at Grand Forks, and
also had charge of the construction
work in several of the company's
mines in the surrounding camps.
More recently he has had charge of
the construction'work for the Inrer-
national Coal and Coke company at
their mines in Coleman, Alta. Mr.
Thomas is a United States deputy
mineral surveyor for Washington,
and both he and his brother being
competent and experienced engineers, the new firm will surely prosper.

Mr. A. B. W. Hodges, general
superintendent of the Granby company, is a hustler in any role he
essays to play.. Last Saturday he
went down to Spokane, purchased
an electric automobile, learned to
operate it, and returned to Grand
Forks the following day. Tomorrow, it is said', thc machine will arrive in this city—and then the fun
of giving it a proper introduction to
the horses of the Boundary will
commence. It is not difficult to
picture in one's mind the antics the
animals will cut up on their first
meeting with the auto; and it is
also a reasonable surmise to suppose
that when they meet on the
Phoenix road, the former will
make a break for liberty and take
to the hills. However, it is to bo
hoped that the cayuses of the Boundary will soon become civilized and
learn the ways of their brothers in
the effete east. -Mr. Hodges will
use his machine in making his frequent trips between the smelter in
this city and the mines at Phoenix.
Mr. Hodges will arrange it so that
the auto can be recharged at
both ends of the line.
Good reports continue to reach
thiB city from the Coro-Cansdian
mine, located in the Greenwood
high-grade belt, and the Grand Forks
shareholders are consequently jubi
lant. The latest news is to the effect that Manager Jeffrey, who is in
charge of the development work now
being dune, has guaranteed to have
a carload of ore .ready for shipment
by the first of May. It is expected
that this ore will average about $100
per ton. The shaft on the property
is now down over sixtv feet.
The third annual ball given by
the Federal Labor Union in Eagles'
hall last Tuesday evening was a
very successful affair, over a hundred people being present, and all
had a most enjoyable time. Tho

excellence were heard on all sides,
At about midnight nn appetizing
collation, consisting of cold roast
chicken and turkey, all kinds of

for that city last Wednesday evening. Mr. Munro will make periodical trips through the Boundary.
Mrs Munro will reside in this city
for the present.
The police commissioners held
a meeting in the city last Wednesday afternoon, and discussed at
length the legal phase of the transfer
of the Province and the Grand Forks
hotel licenses. As the notices of the
transfer had not been published the
required thirty days, the commissioners adjourned for one week without taking action in either case. Mr.
W. H. P. Clement was present, with
the object of opposing the transfer
of the Province hotel license from
Hank Henderson to Dr. Averill.
The C.P.R. land agent in this city
is distributing a haffdsomely illustrated pamphlet, recently issued by

Harold  Nelson's  Company
Pleases Big Audience
on Wednesday
With a Portrayal of Stirrine
Events During French
Revolution.
Harold Nelson and his company
gave an excellent rendition of Steele
Mackaye's masterpiece, "Paul
Paul," a stirring drama of the
French revolution, to. a capacity
house in this city last Wednesday
night. The play is the best ever
sent to this city by Mr. Nelson's
manager.C. P. Walker,of the Winnipeg theatre. Dealing as it does with
the "reign of terror" in the French
capital, it abounds in tableaux and
dramatic situations from the time
the curtain rises on the first act until it is rung down at the end of thc
fifth. A very pretty love story is
interwoven in the plot, and this
adds materially to hold the audience
spell-bound until the final denouement in the fifth act, when the
lovers are reunited, and the villain
"plays the Roman fool and falls
on his own sword"—or ends his life
in an equally dramatic manner.
The play deals with the plots and
counterplots of-thc royuiisis and republicans during the great struggle
of the Frencrrto overthrow tyranny,
thc republic triumphing in the end.
The play was elaborately staged, the
dream scene being the best that has
ever been seen in Grand Forks.
The costuming of the piece was also
carried out on a lavish scale, being
exceedingly pretty, and having, besides, the merit of being historically
accurate.
The cast was very strong. Mr.
Nelson, as Paul Kauvar, the painter
and patriot, played his part with
his usual painstaking skill, and
needs no word of commendation,
ns his work as an artist is too
well known to the theatre-goers of
the city. Clifford Lane Bruce, as
the Marquis DeVaux, and his sister,
Helene Scott, as Diane Beaumont,
did excellent work in their respective parts. These two are rising
young artists, and it is safe to predict that tbey will shine in the
theatiical firmament ns stars before
long. Mr, Wm. Yule, as Dodolphe,
the henpecked husband, gave tho
audience a hearty laugh whenever
he appeared befogs the footlights.
The other members of thc company
are capable artists.
Mr. Nelson will piny a return engagement at the Grand Forks o|iera
bouse on the 31st inst., when l<ord
Lytton's immortal drama, "Richelieu," will be presented.
Dr. K. R. Northrop and W. K. C.
Mrnly returned from a short business trip to Spokane last Tuesday
evening.
Duncan Ross and Mr. Sloan were
guests of the parliamentary press
gallery annual dinner in Ottawa last
Saturday evening.
A rock slide at Shields last Wednesday, delayed delayed the westbound C.P.R, passenger train about
six hours. The east-bound train
was also two hours late when it
reached Nelson. Sty? -Ebming &un

FRIDAY, MARCH 10, 1905.
British Columbia miirng and smelting men ns well as politicians recently proclaimed that the Granby
smelter was running on a 1 per cent
profit basis, and the other Provincial
smelters on an even smaller margin
thnn that. But those who have
watched the progress of tbat important industry of thc Province during
the past five or six years kn?w that
British Columbia was no 1 per cent
country, nnd were hardly convinced
that such a hand-to-mouth condition
existed, else there would not have
been such n recent scramble by East
ern capitalists to get control of the
Boundary properties. And now
conies the statement by the British
Columbia Copper company that its
surplus earnings' for the last two
years up to November 30,1904, were
$80,922, which would amount to
about 15 cents a share annually on
the outstanding 315,150 shares of
stock. This would be 3 per cent on
the shares at their par value of $5.00,
but would amount to a much larger
percentage on the low price at which
the stock wns bought. If the British
Columbin Copper company, running
shorthanded at times as it has during the past two years, has made
those profits, the earnings of the
Granby company's big works in
Grand Forks enn be imagined, as
it has run its six furnaces and converter almost steadily on a system
which is claimed to be the most
economical on the continent. That
the profits were satisfactory is assured; for these works, like any
other business institution, are not
run for the simple pleasure to be
found in labor, but because there is
a first-class return for every dollar
invested in these undertakings.
The Toronto Star recently published a couple of articles by its traveling correspondent, who, after spend-
a few hours in British Columbia,
eulogised the Chinese, and stated
what a hard time we would have out
here without the help of the wily
Mongolian. The natural outbreak
has already occurred in the shape of
some pretty hard knocks handed out
to the Toronto paper by people who
have Bpent years in British Columbia, and who know what a blight the
little heathens arc to this country.
They work for starvation wages, and
save all their earnings to take back
to the Orient with them, spending
nothing in this country, even for
their few living necessities, except
with their countrymen here ; they
displace white labor, both male and
female, and aro a general nuisance.
The Chinamen of Eastern Canada
work under different conditions from
those existing out here ; and those
who have resided here among them
for years .and know them as they
live arc best able to judge that tbe
day that sees every Chink and Jap
chased out of British Columbin will
be one of rejoicing for at least 99 per
cent of the people of this otherwise
pleasant Province.
New York city is certainly progressing in civilization. Last week
an excited mob had just about succeeded in lynching a Syrian in the
very centre of the city for attempted
kidnaping of a little girl, when a
policeman appeared and cut the victim down from the lamp-post •here
he had been suspended till life was
almost extinct, the rescue being accomplished only after a lively fight
between the police and a mob of the
foreign riff-raff which hives there.
Ofthe 1,483,390 horsepower developed by water for electric energy
throughout the world, the United
States heads the list with 527,467
horsepower, while Canada is second
with 228,225 horsepower, and Great
Britain only developes 11,900 horsepower. The Canadian and Unitod
States figures promise to be almost
doubled in the next couple of years
on account of the ninny new plnnts
in course of construction and nisi
contemplated.
Grand Forks has all the other
towns in this district outclassed as
regards climate, as well as in most
other desired adjuncts. This week
we gathered a quantity of wild spring
Howerson the commons and benches,
and some of the ranchers on the outskirts of the city have already commenced their seeding operations.
Will The Phoenix Pioneer man
please wake up nnd take notice?
Nelson has a curfew bell, but its
only effect so far Beems to be in giv.-
ing the youth of that city some idea
of musical notes ; the youngsters do
not hurry off the street. It is supposed the only thing that prevents
the introduction of such an institution here is the fear that the boys
would swipe the bell, for they're precocious kids in Grand Forks.
It doesn't frequently happen that
United States interests admit that
they can receive assistance of any sort
from the Dominion of Canada; but
just now Spokane is longing for the
entrance of the Canadian Pacific into
that city to break up the combine of
railways in holding up the rates
charged business houses there.
There were 130,330 immigrants
entering Canada during 1904, and of
this number 36,700 were from England and Wales, 10,500 from Scotland, 3,130 from Ireland, and 45,000
from the United States, which makes
a combination that will keep the
manhood of this coming nation at a
high standard.
A Colorado minister is giving a
free lunch on Sundays to all those
attending thc morning services at his

full-course banquet in Bight to induce some men we know in Grand
Forks to attend church and sit out a
sermon.

A QUESTION ANSWERED.
7b the Editor of The Sun.
Dear Sir,—To decide a money bet,
will you please state through-your
columns if John L. Sullivan was evei
champion pugilist of the world, and
the reasons for your decision ?
-J. M.
[Strictly speaking; John L. Sulli
van wns never champion of thc
world, though he might hnve hi en
designated as champion white pugil
ist of the world. The highest gen
eral title he could really claim, we
think, was champion of America and
Great Britain nnd Ireland, for during
Sullivan's supremacy in this conn
try Peter Jackson, colored, was
champion of Australia, and Sullivan
le'used to fight the latter on account of the "color line." Jackson,
therefore, had as good a claim to the
title of champion of the world as Sul-
livnti hnd. Later on Corbett defeated
Sullivan, I u', had on'y drnwn with
Jackson ; Fitzsimmons and Jeffries
both defi ated Corbett, nnd Jeffries
defeated both Fitzsimmons and Jacl-
son. The latter died in Australia
four or five years ago. In view of
these facts, therefore, Jeffries is really
the only fighter of late years who
had an unquestioned claim to the
title of champion pugilist of tbe
world.—Sporting Editor.]
WHY DO WOMEN SUFFER
Such pain aud endure the torture of
nervous headache when a quarter buys
a bottle of Nerviline, which never
fails to relieve. Just a few drops of
Nerviline in sweetened water cures
nervousness or sick headache, relieves
heart palpitation and makes you feel
better immediately. Nerviline can't be
beaten for quickly curing stomach and
bowel troubles and should be kept in
every home. It's good to rub on for
external pain and excellent for inward
use. Sold in large 25c bottles. H. E.

ONE OF THE VILEST DISEASES
Ia catarrh, which attacks the nose
and throat and finally spreads all
through the system. The one sure
cure is fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
which is sent by the air you breathe
direct to the root of the trouble. Mr.
T. Y. MacVicar, of Yarmouth suffered for years from catarrh, and says;
In my long experience with the
loathsome disease I never used any
remedy that relieved and cured as
promptly as Catarrhozone. When my
nostrils were so stuil'ed up that I
couldn't breathe I found a few inhalations of Catarrhozone was sufficient to
clear away the mucous. I am perfectly cured by .Catarrhozone and free
from the disease entirely. Use only
Catarrhozone. Complete outfit $1.00;
trial size 25c. H. E. Woodland,

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well 'take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of ihe Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American contin'ent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt I*ike City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect (lining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after tho
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

PERT PARAGRAPHS.
It la all of tbe difference In the world
whether a merchant or a cattle thief
takes stock.
Few men or women have their consciences educated up to a point where
they will not ride on a scalper's ticket.
A man can do almost everything but
think by machine, bnt he Is generally
able to find some politician to do hla
thinking for him.
One thing the man wltb the hoe has
that some people who pity bim ara
shy on, and that If good health.
It takes a lot of culture In savagery
to make one really enjoy a football
game.
Many a woman has found after marriage that a man Is better at paying
compliments than he Is at paying coal
bills. .
A pretty girl Is one who looks pretty
In a rainstorm. All others are base imitations.
You consider
that a poorly-
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business demands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—is in i iself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
