Adjoining Hanna Glaim Pur-
■ ■$ chased to Develop Big
North Fork Mine,
George McLeod Transacted
This Important Deal
Last Saturday.
The North Fork mining district,
tributary to Grand Forks, is gradually though  surely   pushing   itself
' forward as a factor in the mining industry of British Columbia, and by
the time one of the many prospected
I railways is built into Franklin camp,
which will almost certainly be done
during the coming year, that railway
'.will find a large dre tonnage waiting
its arrival by many valuable and
well-developed mines in that future
copper camp.
Another important deal in North
Fork mining property was made last
Saturday, when George A. McLeod,
on behalf of the McKinley Mining
company, purchased from William
Bruin the Hanna mining claim,
Whioh adjoins the McKinley mine, in
Franklin camp. The price paid has
not been made public, but it iB understood to be a good figure. The
lirst payment of $1,000 wu made on
Saturday.
Tho Hanna was Bccured by the
McKinley company primarily for
the purpose of obtaining more room
for| unneling work on the McKinley,
although there are two good ledges
of copper-gold oro already exposed
on the former property.

While the life-boat service is one
with which we arc intensely sympathetic and deeply interested in, yet
how few have heard in earnest the
cry of "Man the Life Boat," and
how very rarely has the average individual had the opportunity of seeing tho life boat at work ? These
realistic and thrilling incidents have
now been faithfully recorded on the
Bioscope, and will be reproduced,
along with an altogether new program of Canadian and other scenes
at the London Bioscope company's
entertainment, which opens at the
Grand Forks opera house on Saturday evening, December 24th, for one
performance.
Rev. Ralph Trotter, formerly of
Grand Forks, is doing some traveling since he left this city. Recently
he was residing in Nova Scotia, but
The Detroit Free Press, of the 4th
inst., says : "Rev. Ralph Trotter, of
Aylmer, Ont., will conduct both services in the Bruce Avenue Baptist
church today."
W. E. McDaniels, |who has been
with the Great Northern company in
this city for over three years, latterly
in the capacity of station agent, has
been transferred to Republic, and
has moved his family to that place.
Mr. McDaniel was very popular in
Grand ForkB, and his numerous
friends will regret to learn of his re-
moval.
Return! from the third class car of
oro shipped from the Skylark mine
recently wero S40 per ton, it being
treated at the Granby smelter. 'I'he
car of first class ore which will be
shipped about the 15th inst,, will be
treated at the Nelson smelter, ou account of the ore reduced at the
Granbv being self-lhixing.
The Canadian Pacific, tho Spokane Falls and Northern and the
Kettle Valley lines have issued joint
ore rates from Ymir, B.C., and Che-
wclah, Wash., to the Boundary smelters. The rate on $15 ore from either
point is 81.75 per ton: The rate on
.510 ore from Ymir is 81.50 per ton,
and on 825 ore $2.50 per ton.

The crusher will have a capacity of
1,500 tons iu one shift, the ore from
these bins being loaded into Great
Northern cars.

Musical Comedy to Be Given
at the Opera House on
Thursday Nieht,
Ladies of the Maccabees to
Conduct Very Attractive Bazaar.
The celebrated musical comedy,
"Pretty Polly," in which the dainty
comedienne, Miss Ada Palmer-Walker, who was for a long time the
leading star in Whitney's "Dolly
Varden," the great sensation in the
largest cities, appears, is one of the
most laughable presentations before
the public. From the rise of the
curtain until the close it is one constant stream of ludicrous, though
natural, situations, splendid musical
numbers, good acting and gorgeous
costumes. Miss Palmer is supported
by a strong company of artists and
musicians, and is giving one of the
blist and most amusing comic operas
on the road today. The Helena
Record of Nov. 2, 1904, .ays of this
company : "Pretty Polly," which
was presented at the opera house on
Wednesday and Thursday evenings,
was a decided hit. It is a splendid
musical comedy, with plenty of high
class fun, the very 'best singing and
good acting. Every member of the
company is good, while Miss Walker
is simply unsurpassed. It is the best
show in its lino of the season." And
this paper's is but one of the many
favorable notices which the largest
dailies have given. "Pretty Polly"
is the nickname of the Princess Polly
von Steinberg, who is a genuine
madcap, and the character is fully
carried out by Miss Walker. At Helena, Butte, Anaconda and Spokane
they were so much the hit of tht
season, and so great was the enthusiasm, that they were finally
urged to play a return engagement,
which they will do early in January.
They will be at thc Grand Forks
opera house this Thursday evening,
Dec. 15, when everyone who likes a
good time should not fail to see them
The Bazaar to be given by the
local hive of the Ladies of the Mac
cabees, in the Addison block, nppo
site the postoffice, next Friday evening, December HI, at present shows
every evidence of being a huge success. Every conceivable preparation
has been made for thc event. Ton
and cuke will be served in real Japanese style, nnd nil kinds of homemade goods, including sweets, fancy
needle work, etc., will be offered for
sale by pretty and persuasive saleswomen. A hand-painted picture
will also be disposed of.
Mr. Sheedy, Great Northern station agent in this city, who has been
laid up in a Spokane hospital with
a severe case of typhoid fever during
the past four months, hns recovered
and is again on duty at the Great
Northern depot here.
The Great Northern passenger
train due here at 4 p.m. Sunday did
notitrrivc until 1 a.m. Monday. Thc
delay was the result of the engine
and three cars getting ofl the track
eleven miles north of Marcus.    No
serious damage resulted, but thc (ire-
man received a few scratches. A
boulder lying on the track throw thc
trucks off while the train was running fifteen miles an hour. The
trainmen do not understand how the
boulder got on thc track, as it could
not have rolled there.
Last Saturday E. C. Henniger &
Co. purchased thc commission business of Mr. Folger, on Second street,
and will conduct that business in the
future at thc old stand. In addition
to the line carried by Mr. Folger,
the new linn will handle a large
stock of Hour, hay, grain and feed.
They arc also the sole dealers in this
city in Crow's Nest Pass eoal, which
they sell at $7.50 per ton, delivered,
Mr. Henniger was formerly in the
transfer business in this city, and is
well and favorably known as a business man of integrity. The Sun
wishes the new firm success.
It is rumored that local, curlers
will get stones from the cast to play
the game here this winter. It is not
likely, however, as it would prove a
very expensive job to keep keen ice
in an open-air rink on the necessarily
large sheet required for the few followers of the game here, who showed
themselves very backward in helping the movement for a covered rink
when the subscription lists were circulated a while ago. Two years ago
a large space was prepared for the
curlers in the open-air rink on Victoria avenue, but they never made
use of it.
Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Welch and
Miss Mabel Welch entertained about
200 friends at Elks' temple in Spokane last Thursday evening. Behind a bulwark of potted plants, the
stage in front was filled with neat
little tea tables, where dainty refresh
nients were served throughout the
evening. The dresses worn by the
women were among the most elaborate that have graced a Spokane ball
room in times past. Mrs. Welch
wore real lace, and her daugl.ter
Mabel wns gowned in pink cliiffon
over taffeta silk and carried a bouquet of violets.
A novelty in the way of traveling
is psomised in the early spring. J
F. Royer, who has been maintaining
a daily stage service between Grand
Forks and Greenwood, is arranging
to give a double daily service between Phoenix and Greenwood as
soon as(iicat Northern trains begin
running into the former place. Mr.
Royer  aims to be   up to date, uud.
anticipating a heavy irafUo, has ordered un automobile wilh it seating
capacity of twelve persons, lo be delivered April 1st. The machine is
guaranteed to climb the switchback
grade at a satisfactory rate.
'I'he city council of Phoenix is considering a by-law abolishing the roail
lax within the limits of that corporation.
It is probable Fred W. Grant will
manage the sknting rink this winter
for Messrs. Taylor and Fisher. His

Similkameen Coal Company
Wants Charter for Line
From the Coast-
Proposed to Make Connections at Grand Forks
and Midway.
According to advices from Victoria, tho Nicola, Kamloops and
Similkameen Coal and Railway company will apply to the Dominion
parliament at its next session, in
January, for a charter for a railroad
from Osoyoos lake to a point near
Grand Forks,, with power to connect
with thc Vancouver, Victoria and
Eastern railway near Grand Forks,
and with the Columbia and Western
railway near Midway.
At the same time thc Vancouver,
Westminster and Yukon company
seeks to increase its capitalization
from S2,000,000 to $12,000,000.
This is believed to indicate that the
Great Northern, which controls what
is built of the line, will build along
thc route already surveyed from
Vancouver to Quesnelle. By means
of the New Westminster bridge over
the Fraser river, northern British
Columbia would then be made tributary to the Great Northern main line
and shipping points on Puget sound.

They brought back two deer, a large
number of grouse and a few jack-
rabbits. Since their return the guests
at Thc lCvening Sun hotel have been
feasting on venison. As intimated
by this paper a couple of weeks ago,
thc party didn't take two wugonlouds
of firearms and ammunition into the
wilderness merely for fun.
' No time is being lost in getting

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1904
The backbone of winter is getting
stiffer every day.
This shomd be a busy week with
the wise shoppers.
It is quite proper to buy everything now except the Christmas tree
and the turkey.
It would not be a bad idea to begin practicing writing "1905" now,
and thus avoid mistakes later on.
Greenwood's city fathers are proposing to pay the mayor So and the
aldermen $3 for each session of the
council which they attend.
Returning Officer O'Hara held the
official count of votes cast in the recent Yale-Cariboo election at Kamloops on Saturday, but the figures
have not yet been announced.
Turkey is so high this year that
the family man who wants the national bird for his Christmas dinner
will have to draw very heavily upon
his imagination or his bank account.
British Columbia has one telephone for every 38 of her population, as against 66 for the whole
Dominion. But that don't prove
that talk is cheaper in the West than
in the effete East.
One great improvement is already
noticeable as a result of the work of
cleaning out McCallum's slough, for
quite a large tract of land at the
eastern extremity is now high and
dry, which formerly was covered
with a couple of feet of sluggish,
fever-breeding water.

little run down and have mighty little chance to catch up. Everything
seems like a grindstone wearing down
your nerves. You are irritable and

worse. Your beat plan is to use Frrro-

the body, strengthens the nerves, improves the appetite and rehabilitates
the whole system. Try Ferrozone.

going out of the Boundary mines to

ation of $6 per ton, this would mean
a total value for the month's output
of about 8350,000. For the eleven
months of 1904, up to December 1,
the total output of the Boundary
mines is a little short of 750,000
tons, and as the month of December
.promises to lie the largest yet, the
total for the calendar year will no

THE GREATEST FAMILY REMEDY
And one well known in most Canadian homes is Nerviline, a perfect
panacea for all internal and1 external
pain. Mrs. M. E. Cartwrigllt of Morris says: "I couldn't think of being
without Nerviline. When I get toothache Nerviline stops it. If I get a sick
headache, have a trouble with my
stomach or bowels, I can rely on Nerviline to cure me promptly. To break
up a cold or rub on for rheumatism or
neuralgia Nerviline has no equal. It's
priceless in any family." Nerviline iB
king over all pain and costs 25c. H.
