Indian Pete Gains His Liberty
by Taking the Fire
Route.
Indian Pete, who was confined in
the provincial jail here for horse
stealing, and whose trial was set for
Thursday of this week, made his
escape Wednesday night in a very
unique if not a daring way.
All the sighs of Pete to be seen
by Constable Dinsmore on bis arrival
ntthe jail Thursday wns a good sized
hole, burned in the lower left-hand
corner of thc door, just large enough
to allow tho wiley Indian to crawl
through. How he managed to burn
thc comer off the door without
starting a conflagration is a puzzle;
but he did it, and as a consequence
his trial will have to be postponed
to some future date.
decided to run a lirsi-class boarding
house and restaurant. It will be
known as the Royal hotel and restaurant. No bar will lie run in connection, as they intend to make it a
strictly temperance house.
Ed Hardy returned Wednesday
from a trip as far east as McLeod,
Alta., in theCrow's Nest pass. He
remained some time at Coleman,
where his brother, Tom, is erecting a
hotel, which he expects to have completed in two weoks' time. They
have applied for a license, and do
not anloipate any trouble in getting
it. There is about a foot of snow in
Coleman, and thc thermometer registered 24° below when Erl was
there.
The C. P. R. will commence the
improvements in their yard here
which they decided on some time
ago, and work will be started on the
new roundhouse next week. Additional sidetracks will also be put in,
and the freight shed will be removed
from its present site to a place near
the old Ingram-Muir warehouse.
These improvements will add greatly to the handling facilities of freight
traffic, which lately has been very
congested in the yard, thus being the
cause of several small wrecks.
A Uniting party composed of Jack
Beckett, W. Brown, C. W. Harri
gan and two others, returned from

port having killed live deer,, Mr.
Beckett getting four of the five..

This firm is erecting one of the finest
hotels between Kootenay Landing

pass, and will have it open to the
public in the course of a week or so.
The Rev. Dr. Waight bas resigned
the pastorate of St. Paul's Presbyterian church in Nelson, which he
has occupied for the past eighteen
months. His resignation is to take
effect thc latter part of the present
month.
Don't fail to read A. D. Morrison's
ad. on the second page.
A. D. Morrison, the well known
jeweler and optician, has decided to
hold an auction sale of watches, diamonds, rings, etc., without reserve,
on Nov. 28th. Now is your chance
to buy Christmas presents for your
friends in the cast.
A citizen who is in business in this
city, but who resides in the Columbia end of the town, asked The Sun
reporter the following puzzle the
other day: "Why are the arc lights
in Columbia like the sing pile nt tbe
smelter?" After scratching his head
for a while, the reporter gave it up.
"Well," said the puzzle propounder,
"because they only light up .the
scene occasionally."
Harry Folger, who owns thc hotel
on Riverside avenue known as thc
Stockholm,will reopen itin a week or
ten days.   Mr. and Mrs. Folger have
Printers\4nk, a journal published
solely in the interests of advertisers,
says: "The merchant wdio advertises liberally makes the best investment he ean possibly make with his
money. No investment he can
make will bring in the returns that
judicious advertising will. If you
have goods to sell, advertise them
Let the people know that you havi
them, and that you are willing to sell
at living profits. Some merchants
expect a paper to educate its readers
to patronize home industry and buy
at loeal stores, and at the same time
fails io give any support to the paper
for so doing. Tbis should not be.
If the merchants support tbe paper,
it will support and advance their
interests."
This world is composed of all
sorts and conditions of men, nnd
(Irand Forks appears to have a
goodly sprinkling of nil the ele
ments. The other day a representa
tive of The Sun wns subjected to
insult and abuse simply hecnuse he
endeavored tn collect a two years' in
arrears subscription bill from a gentleman wdio labors under the delusion that he is a leading citizen of tin
community, and thai the sun would
be compelled to still if he should
command it to do so.
Owing to the prevalence of a few
cases of scarlet fever in the city, the
school trustees this week decided to
close the public school, which they
did Wednesday at noon. Last week
the little son of Jeff Davis contracted the disease, and n few days
later M*ud Woostor, who was in attendance at the school, became ill,
and Wednesday morning Dr. Kingston was summoned to attend Mr.
Chas. Hay's youngest son, Maurice,
nnd thc doctor immediately diagnosed the case ns scarlet fever. A
strict quarantine is enforced wherever the disease is found to. exist,
nnd every precaution will bo taken
to check its sprend. It is unfortunate that the school" should have to
be closed so near the Christmas holidays, as this season of the year is a
very important time in educational
circles.

Peter Donaldson and Wm. McNee
have about decided tn erect a skating rink, but up to the present time
they have been unable to secure a
suitable location. However, they
expect to have a site selected in a
few days, when they will commence
work on the building nnd rush it to
completion. The rink will be 140
feet long by 75 feet wide, nnd will
have comfortable dressing rooms and
all modern conveniences. It is a
matter of satisfaction to the people
of (irand Forks that the prospects of
a good skating rink nre so bright,
and there is no doubt but that it
will be well patronized. Skating is
a healthy exercise for both young
and old, and the promoters are to be
commended for their enterprise.

before spring the majority of householders in Grand Forks will be wishing that Princeton wns a suburb' of

The demand is greater than the supply now.

A: Co.'s new advertisement in this-
issue of Tin-: Sun.
Owing to the prevalence of two
or three cases of scarlet fever among
the school children, it has been decided to close tho Sunday schools iu
this city for a short time. It is unfortunate that thejrjObristmas entertainments which are being gotten up
by thi! different Sunday schools
should receive a set-back by the closing of tbe schools. The course
adopted, however, is the only safe
one to pursue in order to stamp out
the disease, aud it is to be sincerely
hoped that it will be all over in
plenty of time to complete tin- list ol
amusements on tbe program for tin
Christmas season.

Last week W. A. Pounder, who is
a well known miner nnd a pioneer
of Grand Forks, disposed of a half
interest in the Alaska, Emma and
New York mineral claims, located
north of this city, to C. A. S. Atwood, manager of the Hunter-Kendrick company's local store. The
consideration is said to have been
been S1500. Tbe Alaska, which
was located by Mr. Pounder several
years ago, is the most promising of
these properties. Development work
will   be  commenced  on it in the
spring.

A short time ago the Granby
Smelter company bonded thc Senator and Fremont mineral claims,
two promising properties in Summit
camp. A force of men was at once put

now extending to the property, is
completed, be shipping about ten
cars of ore per week, taken from a
glory hole on the surface. The ore
will be sent to the Granby  smelter.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER :0, 191
It is certainly n healthy sign oi
the times to note the number of important mining deals which arc being
made every week in this vicinity. One
deal is no sooner made, than close
on its heels another is announced.
Within the Inst month some of tbe
best properties in the (Irand Forks
mining division have cither changed
hands or been placed underbuild,
and iu thc majority of eases to outside capital. These deals are fraught
with great possibilities to the Boundary country. Upon the success of
a number of those properties which
will now he worked on a large scale
depends the future of a large number of very promising claims in the
same camps. Very little doubt is,
however, entertained on that score,
as past experience has fully demonstrated that Boundary properties,
backed by capital nnd worked by
good, experienced companies, have
turned out Ut be dividend paying
mines. Thc same will he tbe result
with a number of the promising
prospects that have recently been
bonded or purchased hy legitimate
mining companies. And it is gati-
fving to learn (bat the mining industry of British Columbia is on a
firmer footing today than ever before in the history of the province.
Tbe prospects for a mining boom
throughout the Boundary country
in 1004 are most flattering. All
things come to them that hustle
while they wail.

His Forte.
The seven-year-old prido of the family
had concluded his rocitntion of "The Boy
Stood on the Burning Deck," nnd thn
fond mother, turning with dignified complacency to the unnerved visitor, remarked:
"And I have heen assured by really
pmlnent judges, Mr. Marterdum, that he
closely approaches Sir Henry Irving in
dramatic style, without, however, that
great actor's offensive mannerisms.*'
"I am not surprised to hear it!" ns*
sented the victimized one, with a strained
smile.
"Mabel, also," continued the matron,
blandly Indicating a six-year-old mite oi
flaxen-haired precocity, "plays exquisitely. Her rendering of 'In My Cottage
Near a Wood,' with variations, is not
dissimilar In touch and feeling to Pndcr-
wiski at hit beat—as you shall presently
determine; while Eirhert, yonder (get
your slate and pencil ready, darling),
though barely turned four, draws engines and railway lines in a manner suggestive of Academy honors at do verv
distant future. They all have their
fortes, you Met In fact, most people
have, when you eome to think of it.
What is your forte, Mr. MarterdumT"
"Mine, madflmT" gasped the wretched
listener,  "Miner  Oh, I—I run!"
And ha suited the action to the word
At tin'  Inst  mooting of thc city
cunneil Mr. Wm. Dinsinore, Si'., addressed the mayor and alilernicn on
liclnilf nf some deserving   citizens
wIhi nre anxious to see n free library
or  reading (room    established    in
Grand Porks.    Ho pointed out thc
need  of such an institution in our
city, nnd urged tho eity fathers  to
favorably consider tho project, and,
if possible, to lend financial aid for
the early establishment of the same,
Mr. Dinsmore is to lie  commended
for   thc   interest be has taken in so
worthy an enterprise.   Wc certainly
think that the city council should
do all in its power, and   if   possible
strain a point,  to financially   assist
such an undertaking.   There is no
doubt   n   iiuinbe'' of the well to do
citizens of the community would bo
found only too willing to help   by
liberal donations.   A nailing room
and small library would bo a boon
to a great number of young men of
this  oity.    Tbey   could spend tbe
lung winter evenings in comfortable
quarters reading good literature, instead of idling around hotel   offices
and and other places, with no other
object   in   view than to kill  time.
With several buildings unoccupied
at the present time, one could be scoured for such a purpose at a nominal rent; then with the donation  of
magazines and newspapers   and the
purchase of sonic books, a start could
be  made,    It  is to bo hoped that
some good will come from Mr. Dinsmore'saggitation and the suggestions
we have made.

A Matrimonial  Entanglement
In "Chapters From My Diplomatic
Life," which Andrew D. White, the
United States diplomatist, is contributing to "The Century Illustrated Maga-
fine," there occurs an interesting reminiscence regarding the working of the German marriage laws:—
"One morning a man came rushing in
exclaiming: 'Mr. Minister, I am in the
worst fix that any decent man was ever
In. I want you to help me out of it;'
and he then went on with a bitter tirade against everybody and everything in
ihe German Empire.
"When his wrath had effervesced somewhat he stated bis case as follows:—
'Last year while travelling through Germany I fell in love with a young German lady, and after my return to America became engaged to "ter. I have now
come for my bride. The wedding is fixed
for next Thursday; our steamer passages are taken a day or two later, and
I find that the authorities will not allow
me to marry unless I present a multitude of papers such as I never dreamed
ofl Some of them it will take months
to . get, and some I can never
get. My intended bride is in distress;
her family evidently distrust me; the
wedding is postponed indefinitely; and
my business partner is cabling me to
come back to America as soon as possible. I am asked for a baptismal certificate—a TaufBchein. Now, so far as
I know, I wns never baptised. I am required to present a certificate showing
the consent of my parents to my marriage—I, a man thirty years old, and in
a large business of my own! I am asked
to give bonds for the payment of my
debts in Germany, I owe no such debts;
but I know no one who will give such a
bond. I am notified that the banns must
be published a certain number of times
before the wedding. What kind of a
country is this, anyhow V
"We did the best we could. In an interview with the Minister of Public
Worship I was able to secure a dispensation from the publishing of the banns;
then a bond was drawn up, which I
signed, and thus settled the question regarding possible debts in Germany. 'As
to the baptismal certificate, I ordered
inscribed, on the largest possible sheet of
official paper, the gentleman's affidavit
that In the State of Ohio where he .was
born no Taufschein, or baptismal certificate, was required at the time of bis
birth, and to this was affixed with plenty
of wax the largest seal of the Legation.
The form of the affidavit may be judged
peculiar, but it was thought best not to
startle the authorities with the admis
■ion that the ma**, nad not been baptised
at all. They rjuld easily believe that a
State like Ohio, which some of them
doubtless regarded as still in the back
woods and mainly tenanted by the aboi
igines, might have omitted In days gon
by to require a Tuufschein, but that a<
nnbaptiBed Christian should offer himsel'
to be married in Germany would pe
haps have so paralyzed their powers o
belief that permission for the marriag
night never have been secured.
"In this and various other ways *■
overcame the difficulties, and though tl
tveddiiw did not take place upon the aj
pointed day, and the return to Ameri-
had to be deferred, the couple at la?'
tfter marriage first before the publio an
thorlties and then in church, were ab
to depart in peace."
The Blighting of His Fame.
"Ruined!"  he cried,  as he dashed
paper to the floor and trampled upon 1)
"Ruined,    disgraced!     My    fair    fan-
blasted I   Mv honor gone!"
"Dearest, what disaster is thlsf" 1
.vas his fond wife wlv gasped the que-
;iftu, In tones of anguish.
"A disaster Which is irretrievable;
ulamity which will crunh me to tl
eatthl" He ran his white, thin flnge
'hrough his luxuriant crop uf long nr

ten-and-a-half the bottle of black, wm
ranted to defy detection—not a dye, n<
i stain, but a harmless liquid th:
merely has to be combed into the hai
(Vide advt.).
"Heavens, Horatio, tell me what h'
befallen thee!" The fair girl turned V
lotror-fult eyes upon him. Her your
soul, aged thirty-eight, shared h!
agony.
"Felicia," he cried, "do I look like
humorift!"
"The fate* forefend!"
"Do I strike you at all as belnp
funny man?"
"Anything but that!" she shuddered
"Am I not known as a serious

"You are," she admitted.
"Do I not paint the serious tide

"Am I not a novelist of grave i

"You am," she wnispered.
"Does not my tame depend on n
reputation aa a man that abhors a jef

of despair and the greyness of exls'

"It doth!" she moaned.
"Then listen to tfus," he faltered
"These are the words that should havi

'As the light tlickered out, she bent hei

j   "Beautifull"  she    ejaculated,    enraptured.
"Yea, but listen to what the printer

"Oh, Horatio!" she murmured, and
swooned.

BOARD WANTED,
Who Owns The Liberty Bell?
Quite a controversy Is raging around
one of the most precious relics of
American history—the "Liberty Bell/'
that rang out the proclamation of
national independence. This bell, is
all the world knows, la hung lu
the belfry of Independence Hall, Philadelphia; but lately It has been taken
from its place and exhibited In Boston,
Charleston and other cities. Incensed
by what is regarded as the undignified
exposure cf the relic to the dangers of
these "junketing trips," three ladies,
members of an old Philadelphia family,
now make the claim that the bell Is their
private property. Therr announcement.
says the Philadelphia "Evening Telegraph," "comes with a sudden shock to
the people of Philadelphia." The same
paper continues:—
"It Is doubtful If the claim whioh has
been put forth could be sustained In a
court of law, and certainly the city
would resist It to the uttermost, If It
•hould be so seriously advanced as t*
take the shape of a demand for the tor*
render of the custody of the bell. That,
however, the claimants declare, Is not
their purpose; all that thev desire Is
that the sacred relic and emblem of out
national Independence shall not again he
exposed to toe vicissitudes attending
the carting of It around the country for
exhibition purposes, even when the cultivation of patriotic sentiment is the
underlying motive. If the alleged own-
era of the bell should succeed Tn establishing their claim so far as to prevent
it from being taken on another council-
manic junket, they would deserve and
receive the hearty thanks of the vast
majority of Philadelphia!.*.
"The basis of the claim to private
ownership of the relic is at least a plausible one. It is declared by the claimants
tbat the councils which bargained with
their ancestor for the casting of the
Liberty Bell's successor put such s
light valuation on the relic that the}
agreed to let It go to the belt-founder
as old metal, In consideration of an
abatement of his bill to the amount ol
$400. The person who thereby becem*
Its lawful owner might have treated I
as Junk by breaking It up and throwiiv.
the fragments Into the melting-pot; bu
he waa more patriotic than the Cit,
Fathers of that day, and permitted th
bell to remain In the custody of the cit;
confident that it would In due time b
appreciated at Its true value.
"From that day to thla the claim <*
private ownership has been In abeyant
and City Solicitor Kinsey expresses th
opinion that, even If the foundation o
the original claim should be recognise,
the Bell has become the absolute pro
perty of the city of Philadelphia b\
prescription. Whether or not this viev
would be upheld by the courts can onl;
be ascertained bv the test of litigation
An appeal to the courts may possibb
be made, if councils should grant th'
request of the St. Louis Pair manager
to nave the Liberty Bell carted acros-
the country to become one of the sidi
attractions of the Louisiana Purchase
Exposition next yew.
Wasted Momenta
Next to his prayers, the moat regulai
ind unfailing duty that old Mr. Snipe;
.lerformsd waa the winding-up of nls
clock.
As he explained to his chums, That
lock Is the pride of my life. For thirty
ive years, man and boy, have I woum
him up every night nigh upon te-
t'olook, and always before eleven. 1
ouldn't sleep without doing it; I'd n-
oon, or sooner, go without my foo
ban miss doing of It."
It was quite a mania with him, an
iiit good wife, sharing his pride In th
imepiece,  naturally aided his marines-
■>n the one theme.
One evening they had a new acqunlv.i
nos to supper, who happened to be
vatchmaker.
"Excuse   me    a    minute,"    aald  V-
nipes, at ten-thirty, "while I wind u;
he clock."
The jeweler looked at it. "That
rather a nice clock/' he said.
"I should think it is," cried M
Snipes. "It's the pride of my heart. S
it is of yours, ain't it, wifey!"
"That it Is," said his complacen
-rpoute,
"Man and boy," went on Mr. Snipe?
'onrmenclng his usual story, "man am.

"Every night!" struck in the jeweler.

—excellence of the work and promptness in

time is not good service; but the two combine to
