Grand Forks, B. G, Friday, March II, 1904
ISSUED TWICE A WfiEK
Again a Live Topic
A Closed or Open Town Is Once More
the Paramount Issue.
The Question Will Be Fully Discussed at a Public Meeting
Next Tuesday Evening—Local  Paragraphs
Gathered by The Sun Reporter.
.The gambling question has been discussing the present aspects of the
agitating . the   citizens    of, ,ibis j city   government  in    relation    to
progressive metropolis, to a consid
erableduring the past two weeks,
Reports were circulated that gambling had again .been opened up,
and that roulette wheels were rnn-
i ning in several hotels and saloons.
During the past few days active steps
were taken by a committee composed
of the ministers of the city to investigate if the report was true, and if
such proved to the case, to endeavor
to induce the authorities to close up
the games.
Last Thursday evening the ministers' committee, composed of Revs.
J, F._ Betts, J. \R. Robertson and
Henry Steele, called on Mayor
Hammar in his office to discuss .the
"^question, and. after the meeting they
stated that their interview with bis
worship had been unsatisfactory,
and immediately decided to call a
public meeting of citizens to discuss the questioh.
\ This afternoon The Sun reporter
called on Mayor Hammar, and informed him that the ministers' committee considered his attitude on the
gambling question unsatisfactory, at
the same time requesting this own
version of the iuterview. The mayor
said, in part:
"The ministers called on me
Thursday evening, and wanted me
stop the gambling now being carried
on in the city at once. As 'regards
the social evil, they had no suggestions to make. . Thc gambling is
what they .wanjed stopped at once,
and also to have the provincial law
regarding the closing of saloons from
Saturday night until Monday morning enforced, und also to observe the
closing hours for the remainder of
the week. They also wanted^ne to
call a meeting of tho police commissioners for the purpose of having
theni-flct in thc n atter. I refused
to do so, and, furthermore, I told
them that they had as much power
to enforce such laws as 1 had. As
regards gambling, I told them to
leave that in my hands, and if I
could not successfully stamp \t out
I would ask them for their plan and
put it into effect."
The mayor further stated, that he
did not intend to act on the committee's suggestion; that he proposed to
use his own judgment, and he felt
perfectly sure, he could handle the
matter in a satisfactory manner.
gambling and other immoralities.
All who are interested in the welfare of the city are requested to be
present.   ,
Since frost broke up we've had
again.a nasty spell of wind and rain.
Tomorrow is the last day for discounts on water and light rates for
the current month at the city office.
The Federal Union hall, on Riverside avenue, is being overhauled and
remodeled, and the exterior has been
repainted, adding considerably to
the appearance of the building.
Spring is moving time. Even
roulette wheels and blackjack tables
are now on the move. A load arrived yesterday froni Greenwood,
and passed down the principal
streets of the city in plain view of
the entire populace, some of whom
remarked that it was thc first time
they had ever seen a roulelte wheel
in motion.

Tho little seveu-year-o1d daughter
of A. Mcllwane, of Donald street,
fell into a deep bole filled with
water in the yard last Monday and
was nearly drowned. Had it not
been for the prompt assistance of R.

tbe vicinity at the time, the little
one wouldjhave met a watery grave,
as there was some four feet of water
in the hole.

To Treat the Ores of Republic Camp
by the Hendryx Process
A big fire took place in Princeton
a week ago last Wednesday, in
which two of the most imposing
buildings were swallowed up by thc
flames. The Tulameen hotel and
the large general store of A. E.
Howse & Co. were burned to the
ground, and several Other building-
had a narrow escape from the san.e
fate; in fact, it was only by thc
hardest kind of work y by a hastily
organized bucket brigade that saved
the balance of the town. The total
loss is estimated at $30,000, covered
partially by insurance. Mr. Aldon,
who owned the Tnlameen, will rebuilt, as will also A. E, Howse &

McKee  of   Greenwood
It is learned from what is believed
to be good authority that the inter*'
tion is to extend the railway west
from Midway to Pentiaon during
the coming open season. A Greenwood company is the owner of a
charter covering that route, but ther
is a provision in the instrument
which it is desired to have changed,
and it will be brought bifore thc
present parliament for amendment.
The charter provides that the road
shall never be sold or leased to the
Canadian Pacific railway. The
Greenwood people desire, when the
road shall have been completed, that
it shall be leased to the fc\ P. R. It
is alleged by them that the road can
be operated profitably only by the
C. P. R., as it is tbe only railway
that for some time to come would
have connection with the propose d
line. It is said, too, if parliament
will amend the charter as dished,
that the work of construction will
be commenced immediately there
after. Such a road would open up
a splendid country to tbe west of
Midway and as far as Okanagan
lake. This country has some promising mines, excellent timber anil,
here and there in tbe valleys, lino
grazing and farming land.
The Inventpr ofthe System Figures That 80 Mesh Is the
Proper Fineness for Crushing the Mountain
Lion Ore—Mining Notes.
Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, Liberal candidate for Yale-Curiboo for
the Dominion house, passed through
the city yesterday en route to his
home, after a three weeks' campaign
tour in the northern part of the constituency. He is very sanguine as
to the prospects of a Liberal victory
in every district he has visited while
away.
Cooper Bros, have sold to a family
of new arrivals their farm across thc

Dr. W. A. Hendryx, r\roprietor of
the Hendryx system of treating ore,
has returned to Spokane from   Republic.    In an interview printed in
the Spokesman-Review,   he makes
the following statement regarding his
experiments at the Mountain Lion
mill.    "It should not cost more than
$2 a ton at the outside to treat the
Mountain Lion ores by the Hendryx
process, on a basis of 100 tons of ore
or more a day.   To get the" best results we found it necessary to crush
the ore to 80 mesh. Ab I announced
in my first statement, only   89   per
cent of the ore was  crushed  to  80
mesh, and in our tests, therefore, 11
per  cent   was  coarser than the required fineness.  However, we saved
83.03 per cent of all the  gold and
the silver.   We made a number of
tests, and I found that by crushing
to (50 mesh we saved from 72 to 76
per  cent of the values.   However,
there is economy in crushing to 80
mesh, for I have  the  assurance of
Patrick Clark, who certainly knows
something about Republic ores, that
the cost of crushing them to 80 mesh
should not exceed $1.25 a ton.    It
would cost $30,000, I should   estimate, to convert the old Mountain
Lion   mill   into a Hendryx plant
eapable of handling 100 tons a day.
I should discard the 20 stamps now
in use, and should install a Sturde-
vaut rockcrusher, which could .break
the ore to a quarter inch size. Then,
too,   I  should  install   four or five
Chilean rolls, which   could reduce
the ore to the desired fineness.   The j
present agitator up there can handle
33 tonB to the charge and can   run
three  charges a day.   Six hours is
all the time necessary to  keep the
ore in solution.    In experimenting
here with  ore from the Dewey of
Grangevillu mine, I  gave it a test
for six hours on tit) mesh pulp and
saved 71) per cent.   Otto Abeling, the
engineer of  the  Dewey, suggested
that wc experiment for a longer lime.
We tried it then for 20 hours aud got
just   3 cents more.    Subsequently
we tried the process lor six hours' on
t>0  meBh  ore  aud  saved 96.7 per
cent.   The Dewey, of Grangeville,
has ordered a 100 ton tank from an
iron   foundry   in Spokane, and it
should be running in 30 days."   Dr.
Hendryx took with him to Spokane
a little brick, which represent*  the
bullion saved from the battery plates
from the 98 tons of  ore which he
treated. He also has a larger brick
of base bullion, which represents the
leanup from the electrolytic plates

The Brynes brothers have discontinued work on thc May Queen

interested in tho company. This,
group bo far has had something like
17000 worth of development done
on it, and has a fine showing of
arsenical iron ore, carrying good
values, just the kind of ore that is
desired at the district smelters, according to report. At present tho
development consists of a shilftsomc
60 feet deep, sunk on the ore body,
and a tunnel 275 feet long, driven
farther down {fcoBttl to eTtissfht the

FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1904
Spring is here, and in her wake
comes the usual emigration boom,
which is always a welcome feature of
springtime. The advance guard of
the rush has already arrived. In
Washington state the daily arrivals
of homeseel era from he e istcrn sta c s
have attained quite respectable
numerical 'proportions. In Canada
the same thing is being repeated.
Settlers in small detachments are
coming in from all parts of. the
world, and in another month or so
the rush will be at its greatest height.
British Columbia, although not
nearly so well advertised as the
other western provinces and territories of the Dominion, will reap a
benefit from this influx of newcomers. Her great- mineral resources are beginning to be talked
about on the outside world, and she
is just commencing to command the
attention of the investor, as well us
the agriculturalist. Already the
travel into the Boundary district has
begun. New arrivals are to be seen
daily. A great many of these will
locate here. Some of them will engage in .agricultural puisuits, nnd
others in business or mining.
"Where there is money to be
made you'll find c. Yankee," says
Uncle Sam. Which explains the
cause of the great influx of Americans into western Canada during recent years.
The prediction has been made that
western Canada will within ten or
fifteen years produce from eight
hundred million to a billion bushels
of grain.
TnE man with the single idea, if
the idea is of sufficient calibre, is the
man that invariably attains the
highest degree of success in this
world.
A deposit of 85,090,000 ill cash
was made last  Wednesday  by  thc
Grand Trunk Pacific  Railway con
pany as a guarantee for the construction of their road.
British Columbia, was in the city
this week. -He left for Greenwood
and western points on Wednesday.
After making a trip through the
Okanagan country he will return to
Grand Forks, where his headquarters will be located in future.
The Yale-Kootcnay Ice company,
of Nelsop, are busily cngnged putting up 100 carloads of ice at Smelter lake, which they will ship to different points along the C. P. R.
They have the contract for supplying ice to the 0. P. R. company between Nelson and Midway.
B. Lequime, ofthe Kettle River
Lumber company, will leave tomorrow on a business trip to Kelowna.
Rev. J. R. Robertson returned
from Cascade Wednesday, after conducting the usual Tuesday evening
service in that town.
The refreshing rains of last evening laid the duBt in the streets and
purged the atmosphere of its sliltry-
ness. The Grand Forks gardens
this morning looked something like

proportion, Instead of being overwhelmed by them. We are more resigned to the will of God, neither afraid
to depart nor iveranxtous to stay. We
cannot aee into another life, but we believe, with an 'nextlnaulshable hope,
that there la something still reserved
tor us."
It Is worth while to remember bis
hints for old age, full, as they are, of a
practioal wisdom:
Beware of the coming on of age, for
It will not he defied.
A man cannot become young by overexerting himself.
A man of sixty should lead a quiet,
.-pen-air life.
He should collect tbe young about
him.
He should set other men to work.
He ought, at sixty, to have acquired
authorl:y, reticence and freedom from
personality.
He may truly think of the last yean
of life as being th* best, and every > ear
as better than ♦** Ust, If be kir-ws
how to use It
When Bishop Potter was asked, the
other day, what he thought of woman
suffrage be made the diplomatic reply:
"My dear madam, X have gotten away
beyond that: I am trying to make the
best terms with the sex that I can obtain." This brings to mind1 the mot of
William M. Evarts when asked by a
lady if he did not think that woman
was the best judge of woman. He replied: "Not only the best judge, madam, hut the best executioner."
So <>   ny persons are operated upon
very day thai It Is becoming quite' a
distinction to go to the grave all In one
piece.—Atchison "Globe."

GOOD SERVICE is'composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, hut hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory' we have shown. Our
customers will testify, that we have, also lenrned it
in practice.

.FOR   ONLY..*
A radical change from old methods'and prices bus been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvpor world have
been upon Tbe News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News ftt the price of $1.00a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine hns
itnken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure n vnst nnd ever-increasing circulation, bnsed not orirV on the pop-'
ulnr price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents ninny unimic features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
'the home and district news, nnd
the big 12-pnge daily keeping you in
touch with events ull over the world.
Send .us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to see

SEE." said the wise person,
"that som. eminent philologist
again monkeyln-r will, tha
language of the world In thi
effort to combine them In one
tongue that no one will want to learn,
hut everybody can understand. It has
always been a maHer ot surprise to me
that none of these word-arrangers has
ever'grasped the am.izlng possibilities
of bf.by-talk as a universal, time-saving 'method of conversation. Instead
of Moivlntf into the duny dimness of
amhiulty for Saxon and Sanskrit roots,
nnd making It necessary for one to
nr-rt.fr ten lrmsu-ges to learn one, why
do they not go Into the nursery with
an open mind and a notebook and
corrplle a'new mother-tongue that will
cstrh everybody?" ' /
Here he paused for a question, but,
as none was forthcoming, he went on:
"What I ^nean Is this: Tou take any
baby that Was an intelligent, quickwitted mother, and It can mnke its
wants known with less expenditure ol
breath than a deaf-and-dumb man. If
it says "Wow" she knows that a~ pin
Is sticking It, or that It wants Its dinner, or that It wants to turn over, or
that It has colic. If It says "Ah-goo"
she makes a rapid-fire translation
which proves that the child has said
that It wants to see papa or, that (t
feels good. If it says "Gup" she will
at once tell y-u that It means "loflk at
the horse," , If It soys "Boo" she can
tell you with'out a moment's hesitation
that it desires a peep at Its picture-
book. And so on ad Infinitum, and ad
Infantum, for that matter. 'By Jlngl
We don't want Volapuk or any other
old universal language, but as a time
and tongue saver and word-eondonser
we need the adoption of baby-talk.",
- Then, with a sarcastic glance at the
young father, he concluded:
"Besides, It would keep a lot of people from telling us what their children
had tried to say."--W. D. Nesblt In

"8. Paul" Is the name above a chemist's shop In a London suburb. It arrested the attention of a convivial gentleman returning home In the small
hours, and he rang the bell vigorously.
The chemist's head appeared above.
"What Iff It?" he called out. "Want
speak t' you ver* pert'clar," said the
convivial one, "What is It; d' you
want some medicine?" "Want speak t'
you ver' pert'clar," The chemist hastily dressed, came down, and opening
the door exclaimed Impatiently, "Well
now, what Is It?" "I want know—did

WHY GO EAST
Over tho sun-burned, snge brush
and nlknli plains, when you may
just ns well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the gnmdest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
tHe Rio Grande system, tho far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental lino pnss-
ing through Salt lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute th eastern [joints.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with nil trains east
nnd west, nnd afford n choice of five
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining );hnir cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, nnd also
personnlly conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of n competent guide,
whose business is to look nfter the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing tho continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.
