Fourth Year-No. 68
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, June 23,1905
Issued Twice a Week
NO DECISION m
Evidently Requires a  Greet
Deal of Mental Cogitation
in Cascade Case
The Result, However, Is Promised the Public at 11:00
Tomorrow
Nearly the sole topic of conversation on street corners this week has
been the action, or rather inaction,
of the licensing commissioners for
the Boundary creek district in the
struggle for a license between the
two Cascade hotels. The dismissal of
E. A. Rainey from the board by telegraph a few minutes before the hour
of meeting caused a wave of indignation among Mr. Harney's numerous
friends, and has resulted in a split
in  Conservative ranks of the city.
The feeling against the government
is accentuated for the reason that
Mr. Rainey was removed without
any cause being assigned for the act. j
He was known to favor one of the
Cascade contestants, and this fact
furnished, presumably, the only ex
cuse of the Victoria authorities for
his removal.
The commissioners met at the
government office in this at 2 o'clock
Tuesday afternoon for the" purpose
of dealing with the Cascade liquor
licenses, the'contesting applicants
being J. A. Bertois and Charles
Thomas. J. A. Macdonald, of Rossland, and H. C. Hanington, of this
city, represented Mr. Bertois, while
Mr, Thomas was represented by A. C.
Sutton, of this city. Commissioners
Darraugh, Miller, White and Lawder
were present. The meeting was ad-
jurned until 7 o'lock in the evening.
At the night session a most bitter
fight ensued between the two applicants, each endeavoring- to show
that he was entitled to the sole hotel
business oi Cascade.
Chief Inspector of Licenses Darraugh was the first witness called,
and was questioned by "Mr. Macdonald. He said that one saloon
license was enough for Cascade. He
hadn't asked many questions about
licenses while in the town. There
was only one storekeeper who was a
customer of Mr. Thomas. He had
spent the evening with Mr. Anderson, afterwards going : to Thomas'
hotel.
J. A. Bertois, proprietor of the B.
C. hotel, was next called. He had
complied with the law in every respect. Was not addicted to the use of
liquor. He bad alway&'phjased his
customers. Two or *,hree persons
had left Thomas' on occount of
board not being satisfactory. He
said tbat Thomas had refused to
serve meals on more than one occasion. His average receiptsfor eleven
months were 819.60 a day. He had
had ten guests in his house the previous night. Mr. Thomas had four!
Mr. Macdonald did not think one
house was sufficient for that number of guests.
Mr. Willie, an employee in the
office of the Cascade Water, Power
..;&Jjight company, suid he used to
bdij-a with Thomas, but was dissatisfied, and had to go to Bertois'.
Everything was first-class at tbe latter place.       >
Mr. Hogan was called as a witness
for Mr. Thomas, but everything he
said seemed to favor Bertois' place.
Another witness stated that he had
lived at Thomas', and had often been
refused meals.
Still another witness testified that
Mr. Thomas often got under the influence of liquor, or "ginned up," as
called it.
Letters were also read from a number of leading citizens commending
Mr. Bertois' hotel.
Mr. Thomas, on being called, said
he got "ginned up" occasionally, and
what he wanted was to ruin Bertois'
business, or words to that effect.
He didn't mind him having an
hotel, but he wanted all the liquor
money, and didn't mind if he ruined
Bertois or not.
A. C. Sutton, representing Mr.
Thomas, made an argument in favor
of his client.
Mr. Macdonald, in making his
plea for Bertois, stated that it looked
like a specially prepared case when
Mr. Lawder said they could not see
why the evidence should not be gone
over again (rom start to finish. He
asked if this law was like the laws
of the Medes and Persians—unbreakable. Mr. Lawder replied it was
I'so in this case. Mr. Macdonald
wanted to know why. He said Mr
Rainey had been cut off the board
under very peculiar circumstances,
and the case appeared to be a nasty
one all the way through. Mr.
Thomas, he said, appeared to be
mostly "g:.nned up," and wanted to
practically ruin Bertois' business
Mr. Macdonald concluded by saying
that it rested entirely with the commissioners whether Mr. Bertois
should be forced out of business or
not, as there was no appeal from
their decision, which made it of
much more importance why they
should exercise great ("are in weighing the evidence in the case.
Mr. White was in favor of going
into the case from start again, but
was overruled.
The commissioners decided to reserve their decision until Wednesday afternoon, intending to give it at
the meeting of the board in Phoenix on that day. At that meeting
the verdict of the commissioners
was again withheld. It is now
stated that the decision will be made
public at 11 oe'lock tomorrow morning.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
Fifty Men Are Now Working in
Franklin Camp—Sixteen
on McKinley
and H. Graham of this place. Owing to rain the game had to be
stopped before it could be finished.
At the time of quitting the score
stood, 27 all. The number of points
to have been played was 31.
Public School Closed   This
Morning for Midsummer
Vacation
Geo. A. McLeod, manager of the
McKinley Mines, Ltd., returned
from Franklin camp on Wednesday.
He states that there are now fifty
men ai, work in the camp, sixteen
of whom are employed by the McKinley company. That property is
improving with development. Mr.
McLeod took up with him 400 feet
of steel rails and 200 feet of air pipe,
besides a large quantity of supplies
for the workmen. It costs 2fj cents
per pound to get freight into the
camp from this city, as it has to be
carried on pack horses six miles of
the distance. This price is piacti-
cally prohibitive. The McKinley
company has built a three-mile
wagon road along Franklin creek at
its own expense, but there yet remain six miles of road to be constructed, and if the government does
not see fit to build this immediately
a great deal of the development
work now being carried' on in the
camp will necessarily have to cease.
Evangelist McDermid, who was
ent to Grand Forks about four
months ago by the British Columbia
Baptist Missionary soeciety, to see
what the prospects were for resurrecting the Baptist cause, will preach
here two Sundays more. He will
then recommend to the society that
a pastor be sent to this field. Next
Sunday Mr. McDermid will speak
at 11 a. m. on "Has Christ's Agony
in Gethsemane Any Counterpart in
Human Life?" At 7:30 p.m. the
subject will be "Liquor Licensed?"
The following Sunday, July 2d, at
11 a.m. the evangelist will discuss
the question, "Is it the Privilege and
Duty of Every Christian to be Sound
io Body?" At 7:30 p.m. he will
speak on "God Taken for a Gardener."   Everybody welcome.

The Grand Forks public school
closed for the midsummer vacation
this forenoon. There were a large
number of parents and visitors present. The exercises were admirably carried out, and proved quite

on the second Monday in August.
The high school also closed this
morning with appropriate exercises,

A meeting of the Grand Forks
Board of Trade was held in the
council chamber this afternoon for
the purpose of taking steps to urge the
government to cemplete the wagon
road to Franklin camp. The meeting was a representative one, nearly
every business man in the city being
present. Mayor Hammar introduced the following resolution, which
was seconded by E. Miller:
Whereas, There are upwards of
50 men employed in and around
Franklin camp, on the North Fork
of the Kettle river, a distance of 43
miles from the city of Grand Forks,
the McKinley Mines, Ltd., employing sixteen men; and
Whereas, There remains nine
miles of wagon road to be constructed before it will be possible to transport supplies by wagon from Grand
Forks to Franklin camp, and at
present supplies have to be transferred from wagon to pack horses
over the latter nine miles between
Grand Forks and Franklin camp 'at
almost prohibitive expense to the
companies and individuals operating there; and
Whereas, The McKinley mine has
been developed to a stage where it
can be considered a mine, and including the tunnel on the McKinley,
there are three tunnels in course of
construction at Franklin camp, all
of which have been run a distance
of nearly 200 feet, and development
work so far has demonstrated
Franklin camp to be one of the richest mining camps iu British Columbia; and
Whereas, The McKinley Mines,
Ltd., are anxious to install machinery at these mines, so that the same
can be more rapidly and more cheaply developed, and |have agreed to
construct at their own expense three
out of the six miles of road required,
wiid three miles being along Franklin creek and providing transportation to a number of the principal
mines of the camp; and
Whereas, It is estimated that
85000 will complete the road to
Franklin creek; therefore he it
Resolved, that the Hoard of Trade
of the city of Grand Forks take immediate steps to impress upon tho
government thc cxtrirne urgency for
thc immediate construction of the
balance of the wagon road between
Grand Forks and Franklin camp,
and requests the government to proceed at once with thc construction
of such road, so that another year
may not be lost in the effective development of the large and rich ore
bodies existing in said district; and
be it further
Resolved, That a copy of this
resolution be mailed to thc Hon.
R. F. Green, commissioner of lands
and works, and that another copy
of the same be mailed to our repre-
scntatative nt Victoria, Mr. George
A. Fraser, M.L.A.
On a vote bciug taken, the resolution was passed unanimously.

FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1905
The Sun does not presume to be
sufficiently familiar with city affairs
to say whether .there are too many
names on the corporation payroll or
not; but it believes that if there is,
the list should be reduced. This
paper is a firm believer.in civic
economy. The aldermen should expend the ratepayers money as carefully as if they were spending their
own. At the last council meeting
there was a great deal of sentimental
nonsense said about the city having
no moral right to discharge an employee who was giving satisfaction.
There is not a business firm—or
railway, for that matter—in the
world that would keep a man in its
employ ten minutes after it ceased
to have work for him. The same
rule should be applied to city work.
The council should find out how
many men it has employment for,
and then reduce the force accordingly. The sooner we commence to
economize and reduce taxes, the
sooner Grand Forks will cemmeuce
to grow.
We desire to draw the provincial
government's attention to the meeting of the Grand Forks Board of
Trade this afternoon. All we want
is a six-mile wagon road—but we
want it bad.
We wish to draw the attention
of the people of this section to the
fact that not a single Conservative
member voted for thc V., V. & E.
bill in the federal house.
Tho V., V. & E. bill is having a
hard time at Ottawa. It becomes
more apparent every day that the
C.P.R. comes first and Canada second.

TOPICS OF THE TOWN
Lord Arthur Rainey was the busiest man in the city today. Early
this morning a report was set afloat
—by some of tne parties who had
been instrumental in getting him off
the licensing board, no doubt—to
the effect that Mr. Bertois had been
seen handing him five twenty-dollar
gold pieces. As soon as Mr. Rainey
heard this story, he immediately
commenced to make diligent search
of all his pockets, and this consumed the entire day. But he
walked home this evening, stead of
taking a carriage. The report must
have been a false alarm.
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Cook are in
New Westminster this week. Mr.
Cook is a delegate from Harmony
lodge to the annual convention of
the Grand Lodge of British Columbia, A. F. & A. M., which is now in
session in that city. He was honored by that body yesterday by being elected D. D. G. M. for this district.
George Clark returned today
from CiBtir d'Alene lake, where he
has been spending the past three or
four weeks for the benefit of his
health. He has now almest entirely
recovered from the effects of the'-'* recent operation for appendicitis.

Chills Prove Fatal!
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 so 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. H. E.

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-
whgre in 25c boxes with yellow cover;
get the genuine. H. E. Woodland,
druggist.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage bruBh
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 continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande syBtem, the far-
famed "Scenic Line ofthe World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake 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 five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is thc best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, n perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whoso business is U> look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant nnd inexpensive ineanB of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

We steal the following from The
Fourth Estate:
A German editor has hit upon a
new idea in practical journalism. He
is mindful of the utility of his paper for
making parcels, and especially for tying up sausage. So he addresses his
feminine patrons in these terms:
"You have often complained to us,
dear readerN, and especially dear house,
wives, that our paper smells of printer's ink, and is therefore unsuitable
for carrying butter, sausages and fresh
bread.
"Eager to meet your wishes, dear
friends and household fairies, we have
decided to publish twice a week an
issue which shall be printed only on
one side, so that the other will be
available for those domestic uses. And
iti order that you shall lose no reading
matter, these particular numbers will
be double the ordinary size."
This 4jhs the patent inside beat a
city block. We have in mind certain
papers that would do well to adopt the
frugal German's idea, and go him one
batter by running both sides blank,
The general tone of such papers would
be improved immensely.
A new Parisian journal called
L'Invisible is printed in white ink
on black paper. It appears twice a
month, and is anything but cheerful
in apprarance.

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 cjuickly cure catarrh and
throat trouble with Catiurhozone. It
positively prevents 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. H. E.

PRINTS all the news of the
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the )
only twice-a-weck paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
or controlled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor bv
a combination of merchants
to be used as a means of lauding their own wares, to the
detriment of their rivals.
Tiik Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is printed iu the interest of Grand
Forks aud surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. He does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
different parties about what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads Thk Srx twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in tho
Boundary.

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. Ferrozonocompletely cures
Neuralgia. Every root and branch of
