F.I11) Year-No. 1
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, October 31,
Issued Twice a Week
Contract for Construction of
Entire Line to Be Awarded Shortly
Mew York Financier Well Satisfied With Traffic Prospects
According tn a special dispatch
from l'hoenex in the Nelson Daily
News, Alexander A. Arthur, of New
York, after spending several days in
the Boundary, left yesterday for the
east, being more than pleased with
his first visit to this section of British Columbia, and intending to return at no distant date.
Mrs Arthur haB taken in hand the
finishing of the new Midway & Vernon railway. The bonds for the
construction of the road have been
underwritten by English, French
and German capitalists, to the extent of $4,500,000, or at the rate of
830,000 per mile, through Mr.
Arthur who came out to see the
country for himself, bringing eminent technical men with him to report on the potentialities of the territory through which the railway
will be built. While the reports
have not been made public, it is
known that tbey arc very favorable,
both from a mineral and agricultu
ral point of view, as the line nil
piss through the well mineralized
west fork of Kettle river valley and
emerge into nud through a hug,
part of the richly endowed Okanugan
country. *
In fact, Mr. Arthur stated tha.
bids for the entire construction oi
tie line were now in at Ids New
York office, and the'contract woul.i
bi awarded o.i his return to tha.
city. At present only ten miles of
the line, out of Midway, arc under
construction, in order to get the
actual work under way, tbis work
being done by McLean Bros., ot
Vancouver. But the entire contract
will be let this fall.
To build the line a construction
company was organized entitled tin
Okanagan Construction Co., the
officers of which are Frederick M.
Allen, of New York, president; A
A. Allen, New Vork, vice president;
and A. E. Best, New Vork, secie-
tiiry-treuBUicr.
The road,is being built for upd
will lie operated by the Midway &
Vernon Co., with a capital 01
81,000,000, and having the following ollicers: President, John Cain,
New York; vice president, Charles
S. Stule, Pittsburg; general manager, A. E. Hope, New Vork; secretary-treasurer, 1). II. McDowell, Victoria; other directors being L, 8.
Cook, Pittsburg, and Ralph Sninile**
a d lio lert Wood, Greenwood,
li.   C.
Asked as to wbat connection the
Midway & Vernon will have with
other railways, Mr. Arthur stated
emphatically that it was entirely
independent of any and all other
lines in this section, and would be
so operated. In fact, the capital
for its construction comes entirely
outside of Wall street, where most
.western railways secure capital. The
road will, however, doubtless ar-
runge for interchange of traffic with
other railways with which it connects.
The work of construction is under
. the immediate supervision of chief
engineer A. H. T. Leckie, a gentleman who is highly competent in his
line, having been the engineer in
charge of the great railway tunnel
under the city of Baltimore, and
having had a wide experience in
railway work. Mr. Leckie now has
sixteen men in the field surveying
the route, and making the final location of the same, the preliminary
surveys were made some time ago.
Among the original promoters of
the Midway & Vernon are Ralph
Smailes, Robert Wood, Christopher
Wood, Duncan Mcintosh, James
Kerr and Robert Kerr, all of Greenwood, and Charles Wilson, of Victoria. The road has been subsidized
by dominion and provincial governments for about $11,500 per mile.
A report comes from Midway that
an encounter has taken place between
the forces of tho C.P.R. and Contrct-
or W. H. Fishej, of the Midway k
Vernon. The trouble appears to have
arisen out of a dispute regarding the
title to a right of way west of Midway. Something like a pitched battle
was fought on the Meyerhoff ranch,
and the C.P.R., it is said, won by superior forces and superior generalship.
Both lines run through the Meyerhoff
ranch, and as they were working on
practically the same line, a meeting
was inevitable. Mr. Fisher advanced
with his force of between 20 and 25
men with the avowed purpose of driving the C.P. 11. men off the ground.
He was met by Engineer R. A. Bain-
bi'idge, Contractor Tierney and 50
.lien.    There were no casualties.
Dr. Robert Bell, of Ottawa, acting director of the dominion geological survey, was a visitor in the
Boundary last week, being on hs
riurn from a visit to the Yukon
country, where he has a nuniher of
field men at work. His visit here
at this'tinie was for the purpose ol
looking over the ground to some
extent, as the doctor intends to
send parties into the Boundary next
year to make structural and other
surveys of this section. Four yenrs
ago Prof. Reginald W. Brock, who
is under the doctor, made a survey
o the Boundnry, and further work
of importance will be done here.
Dr. Bell is a veteran in- thc service
of thc dominion geological department, having been in the active
work of the department f >r 48 year ,
and being tlm successor, at th-
bond of tne department, of the lire
Dr. Dawson. In preparing and
laying out his work, he is called to
Ihe remotest parts of the Dominion
of Canada, having been across the
continent dozens of times, and, as a
sample, having visited fnr nil' Hudson's Bay no less than twenty times.
This year he has Sij parties in various pails of the Dominion, comprising some 75 men, making sur
voys of different kinds. In the department buildings at Ottawa he
has as many more assistants in all
capacities. In the lust few years
the work of the department, under
the doctor's direction, has been
along the industrial lines, huviug
specialists looking after surveys in
eoal fields, clay beds, and all sorts of
metalliferous deposits, to be of the
greatest assistance to those interested
iu these industries.

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The Sun has been unable to discover any great public clamor for the
abolition of the ward system in this
city. It has not been demonstrated
that the time honored custom of dividing a town into wards entail any
additional expense on the citizens; ami
as nearly all municipalities arc run on
these lines, our own oity might as
well remain in fashion by warding off
latter-day innovations.
Tbe Sun asks permission to Suggest
to u few of its country contemporaries
tnat delight in apeing the metropolitan yellow journals by half-printing
numerous pages, that if tbey would insert half a dozen lines between every
line they print, they could save much
valuuble paper.

TUESDAY. OCTOBER 31, 1905
HALLOWE'EN
Almost all of our Hallowe'en customs come from Scotland, where they
have always made much of that on<**j
night. Thot night, with its clear,
cold moon and harvest shadows, is thc
night when witches, demons, fairies
and mischief-making elves are abroad
on their baneful midnight errands.
The word hallow is Anglo-Saxon—
balig, and the German heilige, meaning holy or sacred, is nearly equivalent to the Latin sanctus, from whence
comes our word "saint."
Hallowe'en is a great anniversary
night for the spirits, and so that ia
the night to take a look into tbe future, for all these uncanny beings can
help you to find out what lies before
you.
The Scotch lassies who want to
know what sort of a person the hoped-
for-husband is to be, take bold of
hands, shut their eyes and go out into
the cabbage patch. They feel about
until their hande touch the stalks or
plants of the cabbage. Then, togather
they pull and then run into the house,
each one to inspect her root. If it is
small and crooked, long and straight,
thick or tlim—it is prophetic of the
of the form and figure of the husband.
If any earth sticks to thc root it
means money, and a tasting of the
root indicates the temper and disposition of the man.
The burning of nuts is a famous
charm. Each nut is named und each
two who are ''keeping company" are
placed side by side in tbe open fire.
If tbey burn quietly together the
course of true love is to run smooth.,
but if one or tho other pops away or
burns more quickly than the other
then there is to he trouble.
Everyone knows the old charm of
taking a candle and going to a looking glass in a dark room and then
waiting for a face to show over the
shoulder and be reflected in the glass
—the face of the future husband or
wife. Some say that an apple must
be eaten while you wait, and others
think you should comb your hair
slowly. And some say you should
take a candle in one hand and a hand
glass in the other and walk backward
down a dark stairway.
Three dishes, one with clear water,
one with muddy water and one with
no water at all, are placed in a row.
Then each single person is blindfolded
iu turn and led up to the dishes'. If
be or she dips the left band into the
empty dish, tbat is a sign of no m ."-
riage; if into the clear water, thai .s a
sign of marrying a maid or tt bachelor; if into tbe muddy water, the future mate will be a widow or a
widower. The arrangement of the
dishes should be made after each person is blindfolded, so that he will not
know their order.
In Scotland and in tbis country,
too, the olst of October is devoted by
many young people to playful divination for predicting future hnsbands
and wives.
The Scotch light bonfires, just as in
the olden times sacred fires were lit.
In the country places over here Hallowe'en is a night for mischief-loving
boys, and when fun and frolic are not
destructiAe we love to hear the norns
and whistles and songs of merriment
at midnight.
"With merry songs and friendly cracks
I wot they did not weary,
And unco' tales and funny jokes
Their sports were cheapund cheery."
#j£ y$. i jf; yfi *f»
"The old guidwife's well hoordit nits
Are round and round divided,
And monjMads' and lasses' rates
Are there that night decided."
"Some merry, friendly country-folks
Together did convene
To burn their nits, and poutheir stocks
And haud their Hallowe'en;
Fu'blythe that night."
Largest Organ In the Body
Is the liver. Small wonder that
liver trouble makes you feel so miserable.. The symptoms are constipation,
dizziness, indigestion, headache, feeling of depression and lack of appetite.
There is but one cure—Dr. Hamilton's Pills. In every case they aresuc-
cessiul. By relying on Dr. Hamilton's Pills you are sure of strong vitality, nourishing blood, bright cheery
spirits. No longer will you suffer from
disordered liver or kidneys. The marvel of this medicine is that it keeps
you well—prevents and wards off sickness of every kind. 25c per box everywhere.
Bicyoi.es and Repair Work—A
complete line of 1905 models. A few
second-hand wheels cheap. Wheels

Postoflicc, First street.
The Happiness of Home
Very largely depends on the mother's disposition; if sbe is animated and
bright, everyone is happy; but if she
is nervous, irritable and cross—everything goes wrong. Bright, cheery
women usually use Ferrozone, the
greatest health-maker known. By
acting through the blood Ferrozone
is able to reach all the organs that
need assistance; it establishes regular
and healthy action of all functions,
builds up thc general health, fortifies
the system with a reserve of energy
that defies disease. Don't put oil'—
Kerrozune costs only 50c, at any drug
store; get it today.
Seed Armor.
Plant seeds arc Incused In a hard
covering, upon which the gastric juice
of animals takes no effect, and it is
this natural protection which preserves
what is so necessary 11 reproduce the
support of animal life. It is ouly when
a seed Is crushed and Its vital principal in consequence destroyed thut the
gastric Juice acts upon it, and it Is
soon dissolved.
It Is for this reason that birds are
provided with gizzards to break the
protecting coats of the grain, and animals that feed on seeds and nuts strip
them of their shells and husks.
In succulent fruit, such as the strawberry, raspberry, currant, apple,
orange and melon, which from their
nature ure attractive to the taste, the
seeds, which are often likely to be
swallowed, are fortified by a doubly
protective coating so that they pass
unharmed through the digestive
organs, and their germinating powers
may even be.iniproved by the warmth
and trituration of the stomach.—London Staud-id*
Terrible Back Pain
They fairly agonize your life. Something powerful and penetrating is
needed. Doctors know of nothing so
swift to relieve as Nerviline, a strong,
penetrating liniment made to cure just
such pains as yours. Nerviline is very
concentrated, about four times nior°
powerful than ordinary liniments. In
the worst cases Poison's Nerviline is
extraordinarily goml. All muscular
pain flees before it. Nearly fifty years
in use—a good recommendation surely.   Sold by all druggists.
