Fourth Year-No. 72
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, July 7,1905
Issued Twice a" Week
DEPOT IS ROBBED
Kettle Valley Line Safe Opened
and $700 in Cash Is
Taken
Work Is Done While the Agent
Was on Excursion to
Republic
osities of Smelter lake to a point
about one mile west of the smelter.
Thence it goes in an air line to
Phoenix, where a substation will be
erected. Fully one hundred men
will be employed on this line between Cascade and Phoenix within
the next month. The right of way
will be all cleared to the Granby
smelter in three weeks' time. This
power line will carry a greater voltage than any other power system in
Canada.
The Kettle Valley line depot, in
the Ruckle addition, was robbed
some time Tuesday night or early
Wednesday morning. Agent Hall
states that the amount of cash stolen
is in tbe neighborhood of $700. Receipts and other papers were also
taken.
The robbery was not discovered
until about 11 o'clook Wednesday
morning, as Agent A. B. Hall aeted
as brakeman on the excursion 'train
to Republic on Tuesday. lie stayed
for the dance in that city that night,
and returned home on the' regular
train the next day. When he
reached the station he found the
windows open. The door ,6f the
sife had been opened by using the
combination.
The reason why so much cash happened to be in the safe at the time,
is explained by the fact that the
road has been very busy running
excursion trains during the
week. Agent Hall has acted al
brakeman on these trains, and dii#]
not find time to bank   the money
Besides, it was considered perfectly
u„f„ in 4L„ i...:i.i:„„     ii*_i*Vu^.u''2l'
safe in the building. Employees
road state that they saw the agent
close and lock the safe before the
train left Tuesday morning, and
that the doors of the building were
all properly locked.
Up to the present time there is no
clue as to the perpetrators of the
robbery, although the fact of the safe
having been opened by the combination leads to the surmise that it
must have been done by some .person or persons well acquainted with
the premises. Provincial Constable
I. A. Dinsmore is working on the
case. He states that seven or eight
persons have been missing from the
city since the robbery/' ",
The depot is located in a secluded
spot outside the limits, and the robbers had no difficulty in doing their
work undisturbed and making good
their escape.
Power Line Right of Way
W.   B.   Townsend, of Rossland,
who is the right of way agent for thc
I** Went Kootenay Power & Light com
pany, was in tho city Inst Wednesday. Mr. Townsend stated that his
company is constructing a double
pole line, with a 99-foot right of
way, from Bonnington Falls via
Silica on Sheep creek near Rossland,
and thence by the Velvet-Poitland
group of mines, situated on Sophie
mountain. From thence it proceeds in a straight line to Cascade,
intersecting the Dewdney trail at
various points. From Cascade it
follows on the north side of Kettle
riyer to a point two and a half miles
east of this city; thence it ascends
Morriss-ey creek, passing over a low
summit to the smelter draw, and
from this point to the Granby smel-
p       ter.   From there it follows the sinu-
BOUNDARY MINING NEWS
Robert Clark, of the Seattle mine,
reports that an ore body has been
struck in the 340-foot tunnel which
has been run on that property. The
width of tbe vein is about three feet,
and in character it is a rich copper
ore. The strike is considered of
great importance by the management. The Seattle was bonded a
few months ago to Messrs. Pemberton and Hunter, of Greenwood, for
a large sum, and considerable work
in the form of tunneling has since
been accomplished. It is one of the
original locations on the North Fork.
The Big Chief mineral claim at
Christina lake has, it is said, one of
the largest mineral deposits in that
district. The property is located
close to the C.P.R., with a sidetrack

months.
it has recently acquired a controlling
interest in tha Allison townsite, The
Hon. Edgar Dewdney has long ago

of his hands.
Boundary Oddfellows Have a
Joint Installation at
Phoenix
The Miners' union of Phoenix,
through its building committee, having settled on the location of the
new opera house and hall, is now
looking into the best kind of plans
for the erection of the new building.
J. F. Royer, formerly of this city,
is considering making the Chesaw-
Hedley end of his Phoenix-Hedley
stage line daily instead of three times
a week, as at present. He will probably also extend the line to Princeton, 23 miles beyond Hedley.
Foreman Dermody is once more
working the Providence mine, after
the recent mix-up at that property,
and will probably continue to do so
until the courts have decided who
should be in control, the Chicago or
Greenwood directors. In the meantime the mine itself is reported to be
looking better than ever.
Fred Knight is visiting his brother, C. W. Knight, in Vancouver.
He will remain at the coast for several weeks.
O. Johnson, of the Gem restaurant, left for Midway this week. He
intends to open another restaurant
in that town.
John Jordan, of thc firm of Burn*;
& Jordan, who spent several months
in the Boundary last year, was a recent visitor in thc city, on his way
from Oroville to Spokane. The firm
has one of the best pieces of work on
the Great Northern extension. Thc
tunnel they are starting to drive has
been increased in length to about
1800 feet, and means a year's work
to the firm. At present they have
150 men on, and expect to have a
compressor plant to furnish power.
Altogether, nearly a thousand men
are now employed on that piece of
railway.
J. G. Gallagher, thc newly appointed Boundary roadmaster of the
C.P.R., in succession to 11. L, Johnston, who is now located at Nelson,
will make bis headquarters at Eholt.
Mr. Gallagher comes here from the
Nakusp & Slocan branch.
The grand chancelor of British
Columbia, Knights of i'ythias. will
visit the Grand Forks lodge on the
19th inst.
Evidence tha the C.P.R. means
business in the construction of a
railway from Spence's Bridge to
Midway may be found, says tbe
Similkameen Star, in the fact that
Linda McRae, the eight-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Pete McRae, who was operated on a little
over a week ago, for appendicitis, is
still at the Cottage hospital, and is
at present quite low from an attack
of typhoid fever.
A Great Northern freight train
jumped the track near Colville yesterday, and nine cars of a coke were
badly wrecked. A temporary track
was constructed around the wrecked
train so as not to interfere with the
regular traffic.
The C.P.R. engineers who have
been engaged in surveying the C.
& W. land grant in this vicinity for a couple of weeks, will complete their work here in a few days.
Harry Hunter, of Greenwood, is
in the city.    He will hereafter be
employed in the Hunter-Kendrick
store in this city.
Harry. Gray, of Vancouver, arrived in the city this week, and will
hereafter be behind the bar at the

and enhanced the pleasures of the
occasion. The sports of the day
consisted of horse racing and a full
line of athletic games, including foot
racing, vaulting, high and long
jumping, etc. The Phoenix boys
had been in good practice and got
away with a majority of the prizes,
including thc firemen's hub race.
Grand Forks missed winning in the
wet test through the coupling blowing off at the hydrant. The same
accident happened to the Phoenix
team, and Greenwood won this
event in a walk. The baseball game
was canceled. In the evening the
Republic theatre was crowded with
dancers at thc ball given by the
celebration committee.

TOPICS OF THE TOWN
Judge Andrew Leamy is still confined to his home, suffering from a
complication of diseases.
J. H. Kennedy, chief engineer of
tfce V., V. it E., returned last night
from a three weeks' trip to Ottawa.
Geo. A. McLeod, manager of the
McKinley Mines, made a business
trip to Spokane this week.
Miss Kate Ross visited friends in
Greenwood a couple of days during
thc early part of the present week.
Finance Minister Fielding, in the
course of his budget speech in the
house yesterday afternoon, reviewed
at length the past financial year. He
was able to show that the surplus
. upon July 1,1904, was 815,056,984,
far and awty the largest in the history of the Dominion. The net
surplus under eight years of Liberal
administration was 856,437,076,
giving nn average annual surplus of
$7,054,654. During the eight years
of Liberal administration there has
been added to the public debt the
insignificant sum of $278,232, or an
average of $34,000 for each year.
Mr. Fielding estimated that the receipts of revenue for the year ending June 30th last were 871,2.50,000,
an increase of about 8600,000 over
the previous year. The expenditure, after deducting sinking fund,
would add about $1,000,000 to the
public for the year 1904-05. The
total estimated expenditure for the
year 1905-0?! Mr. Fielding placed at
$71,889,898, and claimed tt.at current revenue would more than meet
this enormous outlay. In addition
to the expenditure on current account, Mr. Fielding said that provision would have to be made on
capital account for 816,089,472 for
the building of the new transcontinental railway.
Prorogation of the Dominion par-
iament is provisionally set for Saturday of next week. The autonomy
bills passed their final stage in the
lower house Wednesday and the
budget came up yesterday.
Chills Prove Fatal 1
If warmth and circulation are not
promptly, restored, chills result in
fatal pneumonia. This necessitates
keeping Nerviline on hand. Taken in
hot water it breaks up a chill in two
minutes. By rubbing freely over
throat and chest it prevents colds. No
liniment ao strong, so penetrating, so
swift to kill pain and inflammation.
Nearly fifty years' record has proved
the value of Poison's Nerviline. You
should   get   a   bottle today.

According to information received
by Manager Keary, preparations
are now going on in various parts of
Australia for a big exhibit'of that
country's resources to be made nt
the Dominion fair, which opens in
New Westminster oil September 27.
D. II. Ross, who is Canadian com-
meroial agent for Victoria, Tasmania
and South and Western Australia,
took the matter up some time ago
with the various chambers of commerce, and has worked the proposition into an undertaking which hns
been entered into with general enthusiasm. The people of Australia
realize, Mr. Ross say*), that the holding of the Dominion fair in New
Westminster opens to them a great
opportunity to develop trade with
British Columbia, and they will improve it by makingian elaborate display of such of their products a3 are
marketable in this part of the em

What Causes Appendicitis
The commonest cause of appendicitis
is constipation. When you require
physic don't use cheap drastic pills—
get Dr. Hamilton's Pills, which
strengthen the stomach, regulate the
bowels and prevent any tendency to
appendicitis. In one day you'll feel
the tremendous benefit of Dr. Hamilton's Pills. By purifying the blood
and cleansing the system they prevent
headaches, lift depression and drive
away weariness. No medicine so successful as Dr. Hamilton's, sold every-
whgrc in 25c boxes with yellow cover;
get the genuine.

just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable vide through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view,of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?

thc Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Lino 'ofthe World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.

Public expectoration is against the
common law, against the laws of health
also. When the throat tickles, that's
the time you need Catarrhozone; it
soothes away the irritation, cuts up
the .phlegm and loosens the tight feeling. You'll quickly cure catarrh and
throat trouble with Catajrhozone. It
positively presents new attacks and
cures catarrh forever and for all time
to time to come. Don't take our word
for it; try Catarrhozone yourself. Once
used you'll be delighted with its pleasant   and   helpful  influence.

Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the

The Source of Neuralgia
It runs hand in hand with poor
health and weak nerves. Health runs
down, nerves get irritable, neuralgic
torture follows. For the moment applications may relieve—but to thoroughly cure, the system must be
strengthened with nutritious blood.
What can equal Ferrozone? It increases the appetite, forms abundance
of rich life-giving blood, supplies nutriment and bu'lding material for Worn
out nerves. Ferrozonecompletely cures
Neuralgia. Every root and branch of
*,he disease it kills. Absolute success
in every case. Stip suffering—fifty
cents buys Ferrozone. Fifty chocolate
