The death of Joseph Pounder occurred last Saturday morning at 6
o'clock, after a couple of weeks of
intense suffering. Two weeks ago,
while engaged in unloading ties
near Lequiine's sawmill, he fell from
a llntcar onto pile of rockB below,
breaking.his hack and otherwise
seriously injuring himself. An
operation was performed in the hope
relieving his pain, but the injuries
to his back and spinal cords were of
such a serious nature that it was impossible to save t.im, and on Saturday morning he breathed his last.
The funeral was held on Sunday
afternoon from Cooper's undertaking establishment, and was very
largely attended. The pallbearers
were Jeff Davis, W. Bently, W. H.
Fisher, Jack Spratt, Harry Schaffer
and J. McEwen. Rev. J. R. Robertson, of Knox church, conducted
the funeral service. The relatives of
deceased have the sympathy of the
entire community.

A serious conflagration was only
averted by the prompt turn-out of
the West ward fire brigade last Sunday afternoon, when Foreman Martin's car, which was standing on the
sidetrack in the C.P.R. yards with
> several others caught on fire. The
alarm was sounded when the lire
was first discovered, and in a short
time thc hose reel was run out and
the hose attached to the hydrant at
the Pacific hotel, and a good stream
of water was turned on the flames,
which were soon under control. Tho
lire started from an overheated stone.
Had it not been for the prompt response of the upper town brigade,
the roundhouse, coal bunkers and
a quantity of wood piled alongside
the track, would certainly all have
gone up in smoke, with a possibility
of the fire spreading to the warehouses, a little to the north of where
the fire started. About $25 worth
of goods were destroyed.

actual reality. Even those from
Missouri — the "got-to-show-me"
people—are satisfied. All doubts as
to the intentions of the railway company were set at rest last Saturday
on the arrival of Patrick Welch,
the well known railway contractor,
who has the contract for this work,
to make preparations to get the construction work under way as soon as
possible. Sub-contracts will be let
}his week by Mr. Welch, and next
week should' see grading started.
Work will commence on the Phoenix branch and the Granby spur
simultaneously, and as a result a
large force of men and teams will be
required. It is estimated that from
11500 to 2000 men will be at work
within sixty days if they can be
procured, which seems at the present time a little doubtful owing to
the large amount of railway construction being carried on in other
parts of Canada. However, as soon
as thc crops have been harvested in
Manitoba and tbe Northwest a lot of
men will bo available.
Mr. Welch has decided to erect
warehouses instead of renting them,
and the contract for the building of
them has been let and already some
of the material is on the ground.
The lumber is being furnished by
thc Kettle River Lumber company.
The location of the warehouses,
which will include thc company's
commissary, will be due south of
the Great Northern station, and the
plans call for commodious buildings
where a large amount of supplie
including hay and grain, can be
handled. A spur line to tbe grounds
will be built immediately to facilitate the handling of supplies with
dispatch
The first consignment of horses is
expected to arrive hy today's train,
also a. largo amount of machinery
and dump carts for grading.
Grand Forks is to be headquarters
for hospital accommodations for the
thcCurlow-Midwny branch, as well as
for the Phoenix branch and the
Granby spur. Dr. E. H. Northrop,
the well known physician of this
city, >vill have charge of tho entire
hospital, and will be assisted by another  physician   who has not yet
milted by Caughren & Woldson,
who are now a.warded the contrct.
That the terminus of the line will not
long remain at Midway is plainly
apparent to anyone with even a
casual knowledge of the condlions
and the country. There is little or
nothing at tbat place which offers
traffic for a railroad or encouragement for a branch line to be constructed to that point. Midway is
already touched by the Columbia &
Western, which provides for all thc
present or prospective traffic needs
of that immediate locality. This fact
is in itself an assurance that it is the
intention of the Great Northern authorities to carry the line on to th;
northward and westward into British.
Columbia territory. The prevailing
opinion among railroad men is that
the ultimate destinaton of tho line is
some tidewater point in British Columbia.
The map published in connection
with the last annual report of President Hill ofthe Great Northern furnishes a key to the route and direction of this probable extension. It
shows that many months ago the
company projected an extension
from Curlew northward across the
international boundary line, thence
westward in a direction parallel with
the boundary and a short distance
north of it to Osoyoos lake, thence
around the south end of the lake
into American territory, thence
northward up the Similkameen river
to a.id beyond Princeton. This map
leaves thi! proposed line dangling in
the Cascade mountains, but not nn-
til after it bas passed through miles
of territory known to be vastly rich
in coal and mineral deposits. From
the point where the line as indicated ou the map stops to Hope on tho
1'raser river is but a few miles, and
| this fact affords the very plain suggestion tbat the line will be continued nn over the pass and down
that liver to the sea.

'HJESDAY, MAY 24, 1904
Already the city bas taken on a
livelier appearance, as a result ofthe
certainty of the immediate resumption of railway construction in the
Boundary country. Business men,
citizens and every one feel enthusiastic over thc prospects of good
times, which the construction of
these branches certainly means. The
demand for houses is brisk, especially in the West end of the city,
and during the past couple of days
quite a number huve been rented,
and it is only a matter of a month
or less when there will not be a vacant house to be had. The length
of time which it will take to complete the projected branches, including the one from near Phoenix
to Greenwood, seems to be a matter
of conjecture, as everything depends
on the force at work and the amount
of rock-work to be done—anil it is
conceded that a large proportion will
be heavy rock-work. One thing is
certain, however. No matter how
the work is pushed, it will be impossible to complete it before next October; nnd those claiming to be well
informed on such subjects, say it will
take nearly a year to finish it. In
the meamime every line of business
will improve!. And thc prosperity
and progress of thc will be substantial and permanent, as everything
points to a continuation of good
times. The North Fork road may
commence construction this fall, and
it is within thcrange of possibilities
that thc Granby smelter plant may
also bo enlarged. If these events
do not take place tbis year, it is almost certain that next summer will
sec them consummated, As far as
the North Fork road is concerned, it
is a foregone conclusion that it will
be built sooner or later. In fact, the
officials are now awaiting a report
from the experts who recently
examined the mineral properties
in thc vicinity ofthe proposed route,
and if this report is satisfactory it is
expected that work will be commenced this year.
There are already more railway
corporations doing business in Grand
Forks than in any other city in the
province. A railway antra invariably becomes a wholesale centre, and
it iloes not lake a very longstreteh of
imagination to see the day when this
city  will   be the distributing point
for a large and prosperous territory.
In times when action moves
swiiftly the advantages of a twico-a-
week over a weekly paper are most
discernible. Here's hoping that conditions will soon warrant the printing of The Sun six days  per  week.
Talking about exclusive news, it
was six or seven weeks ago that Tut:

branch would be commenced about
June 1st.

from the portal of the No. 4 tunnel,
and on this level it gives some 2000

in ore of a shipping grade. The
tunnel will now be widened and
timbered where necessary, and serves
already to give improved air to parts

Gla-Jys Deacon, "the American beauty,"
met with an extraordinary accident at
Mrs. Adnir'a fancy 'dress ball the other
night in London. A lady who was walking in front of her tripped, threw up her
Heels, and one slioc flew off, striking- .Miss
Deacon shurply on the chin, causing a
bad cut. At Hla Majesty's Theater, a
few nights later, when Claude Lowther's
piny, "The Gordian Knot," was produced,
Sliaa Deacon still bad a plaster on her
chin.
The French have found a renson for
the popularity of tiie cake walk in Paris.
The thing is French! One of thc negroes
at Ihe Nouveau Cirque, interviewed by a
Jt-aris paper, says that the origin of. the
dance was French. According to this
latest account, some of the French refugees from the court of Marie Antoinette introduced the minuet into New
Orleans about the time of the Revolution, and it was the native imitation of
the most fashionable dance in Europe
that wus afterward developed into the
cake walk.
The Declaration of Independence is to
be seen no more by the public, an ordci
having been issued that henceforth the
historic manuscript shall be kept lindei
lock and key in a great lire and light-
proof safe. This decision has been
readied us the result of an examination
of the document by a committee of the
American Academy of Sciences, recently
in session In New York, who acted in
the instance of Secretary liny, who J
attention had been called to the siu
slate of the famous document. Most o
the text of the Declaration is still leg!
bis, but only one or two of the otyiin
lures can be made out. There is only ■•
trace of tbe autograph of John Haiico'k

the result of the protective steps.
Chicago had to get along for over thre
weeks with soiled linen on account of t'i
BLrik-j of thousands of laundry girls am
men. Every union laundry in Chicag.
was clewed. John Chinaman and a fev
scattered non-union laundries kept a;
work, but they could not begin to kee;
the city's clothes and household linen i
oider, Untidy collars and cull's, soilc-
ehirls and shirt-waists, spotted tabh
cloths and napkins were the rule in ho
tels and private homes. The old niamnn
of slavery days reaped a harvest. Som
laundrymen, who thought to be shrewd
er than their fellows, fixed up grea'
bundles of linen and shipped them U
neighboring towns, thereby hoping ti
promote tiie neatness of their customer*,
but the union was on thc alert. Wagon
were followed to stations, the place o*
shipment ascertained, and the laundry-
workers there notified that "scab" work
was coming to them. In most ease*-
these laundry employees refused to do
the work, and the bundles were shipped
back to Chicago.
WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burnel. sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well lake a delightful, cnol
and comfortable ride through the
heart nf the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on thc
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Kio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Lino df the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glcn-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
und west, and afford achoice of five
distinct routes of travel. The ei|iiip-
ment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of bis guests. No more
pleasant ami inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can hi; found
than is provided by these excursions.

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 combine1 to
make one of the most necessary, but 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 learned it
in practice.

Where Waves are Highest.
In hia bok of sailing experiences, "Detj

threatens to outrival Frank T. Kullen at
a describer of the life of the man befon
the mast, gives a vivid and awful at covin!
of hia first trip around Cape Horn, the
roughest sea passage in thc world. Hi
writes:

our royal yards and the ship was dow
in the trough of a sea, we could not st

much, for in tbis belt, and only hei'i

"For a moment the vessel balances ■

DAILY NEWS

.FOR   ONLY...
$2.25 a Year
A radical change from old methods and prices has heen made by
thc Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
heen upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have heen made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of $1.00 a
year hy 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 has
taken bold of thc people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, hut
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper nt $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving yon all
the home and district news, and
tiie big 12-page daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to Thc
News, or if you would like to see
thc paper first, write us and we will
secure a sample copy.
