Fifth Year-No. 18
Grand Forks, B. C„ Friday, December l%
Issued Twice a Week
Phoenix Union No. 8 Is Building a Fine Block in Centre
of That City
Theatre, Ball Room and Lodge
Rooms All Uuder One
Roof
The Miners' union of Phoenix has
increased in numbers to such an ex
tent that it has outgrown its old hall,
and a new building, which will be
us a hall and opera house, is being
erected by the union, and is rapidly
nearing completion. When finished,
thc structure will be a credit to Phoenix, or even to any of the large
cities. The building occupies a corner site in the most central position
in the town. It fronts on three
streets, two of which are main thoroughfares, and has a splendid foundation, being well built practically
on solid rock, in which consfderable
excavation was done in order to allow for the raised floor of the theatre.
In deciding on this site, Phoenix
Miners'.union did a wise thing, as it
is possible to view tbe building from
any part of ihe town, and there is a
great advantage in having such a
central location.
The ground floor of the new building consists of a well appointed auditorium, which is to be used as a
theatre, concert hall, and lecture
room. The dimensions of tho auditorium are 97 feet in length by 43
feet in width, including stage room
of 1000 square feet, and it is capable ol seating 1100. The floor rises
towards the back and has a total
slope of ten feet, so that an unobstructed view of the stage can be had
from every seat in the room.
The second floor consists of a spacious and elegant ballroom, having a
floor space of 4000 square feet, with
an elevated alcove for the use of the
orchestra. Suitable cloak aud toilet
rooms have also been provided in
connection. In the front of the
building on this floor there is also a
large storeroom.
The third or top floor has been
carefully partioned. In addition to
the neat and elegant lodge room on
this Boor, there will also be a well
appointed reception room with
kitchen in connection. The dimensions of the lodge room are 66 feel
in length and _."i feet in width, and
those of the reception room '."> feet
18 foot. These rooms will be well
furnished so ns to be suitable for
the purposes for which they are intended. Tliere are also four smaller
rooms on this floor, one of which is
provided with an anteroom, and
will he used as a lodge room by the
smaller orders and unions. Another room, which is 25 by 15* feet,
will be very suitable as an olliee for
a lawyer or insurance agent. The
third, 15 by 28 feet, has already
beerf applied for to be used as a club
and reading room, and the remaining room will bo rented by the
miners' union for its secretary.
The building will be heated
throughout by heated air, there being a brick furnace in the basement
for this purpose.
The funds for tho erection of the
building  have  been   raised by ihe
issuance of .'1000 shares 'at a par
value of 85. Thc annual income
from tho building is estimated at
S2S0(>, and the expenses for maintaining the same at 81418, leaving a
profit of- 81438 for the year.
Certified stoek provides that "all
shares sold participate eqiHtlly in the
profits of the hall. A balancing of
the accounts will be made half-1
yearly, viz., on October 1st and
April leach year. Phoenix Miners'
Union No. 8 guarantees a dividend
of 3 per cent per annum, dating
from the issuance of the shares, and
reserves the right to buy the stock,
at the beginning of eaeh half year,
at*the face value of 85 per share."
Also that "Phoenix Miners' Union
No. 8 agrees to place the deed of the
property and insurance policy of the
new building in escrow as security
for stock, to remain there until all
stock is repurchased by the union,
or until the union has given 90 days'
notice that they are ready and will
repurchase all outstanding stock."
The value of the lot on which the
building stands is $2000, and the
building is insured for $12,000.

A Grand Forks Parrot Objects
to   the Intrusion of a
Workman
After Bidding Him  Entor It
Becomes Very Inquisitive
A workman was sent to a private
residence a couple of evenings ago to
repair a water pipe. He knocked at
the door. "Come in," said a stentorian voice. He opened the door
and found the room in Egyptian
darkness, the hour be rather late.
He was rather startled at not. finding
the room lit Up, but explained the
purpose of his visit as hest he could.
In answer, the voice ashed hiin,
"What the blank do you want here?"
The man repeated his errand, and
again the same question was asked
him. Further investigation disclosed thc fact that he had carried
on a conversation with a parrot that
had formerly been.a pet in a saloon.
The EnslUh Face.
It wus an American who, meeting an
Englishman In a country hold In the
States, opened conversation syiupatliet
leally with the words: "Cheer up! It
may not he true, mill If It is true It
may be all for the best." Ami he wus
surprised :o find that the Briton's look
of acute gloom w-as normal atul not the
result of nny moro than ordliiuriJv bod
news. The prevailing nuiion of the
American wltb regard to the English*
man is thnt be looks "us If bis only
friend on earth was a yellow dog, innl
he Innl lost the dog." For years tlte
Inhabitants of the States have been
scrutinizing the faces of British visitors io try to ascertain whether their
resigned expression is duo to a recent
bereavement, confirmed misanthropy or
simply to superciliousness. According
to u weekly paper, some Americans attribute the English face to the English
climate, "Tbey did not look actually
«ad," Biiid an American lady to the
writer, "or happy or preoccupied, but
they one und all bad uu expression of
resignation—the only state of mind possible with nn English climate." This
is uii ingenious explanation. Centuries
ot ruin nnd yeurs of fog may huve bud
tbeir effect on our looks. There Is, Indeed, u Certain dignity In the Ideu.-

The work of locating tbe Vancou

Princeton was completed this week
by Mr. Cranshaw's survey party,
says the Similkameen Star. The
road crosses the Similkameen from
the first bench above water near the
Indian reservation, crossing the
lower part of Fenchurch avenue and
striking Bridge street at its intersection with Killiter avenue. The line
crosses through the centre of ll.
Summer's cottage, touching also
the properties of Messrs. Gibson,
Howse, Baker, Chrisfield, Jackson,
Hall, Spencer, Anderson, Hill,Wells
and the townsite as far as the Similkameen. This is the final survey

and Anderson, right of way purchasers, arc expected here shortly to
fix the price of properties expropriated.
Work on thc big tunnel at Rich
Bar is being pushed from both ends.
It is thc heaviest construction work
on the whole line of the Vancouver,

when the steel reaches the tunnel a
temporary line will he laid around
the tunnel to avoid eelay in track-

President Hill's promises are always fulfilled if nothing happens to
prevent it. He said he would begin

The Montreal Herald editorially
suggests that Senator Teniplcinun, i f
Victoria, should be appointed minister of inland revenue, ai d that
Hon. L. P. Ilrodcur, the present incumbent of that olliee, should take
over the department of marine and
fisheriesj The Herald strongly emphasizes the fact that there is a
growing Feeling that the west'shnuld
at once secure increased representation in the cabinet. In Montreal
Liberal circles it is generally conceded that Quebec will have to forego one of its portfolios, aud the almost unanimous opinion is that the
new minister to_ succeed the late
Hon. Raymond Preforitaine should
come from British Columbia. Senator Templeinan's name isevery where
mentioned with approval.

Hears a call;
But, alas, where do we find him
In the fall?
With his soul once full of ragtime
Bruised and torn
He is way out in the country
Husking corn.

Keeping an Umbrella.
Umbrellas are proverbially a bard
thing to keep. Tbey have such a way
of milking up wltb an absolute stranger aud walking away with him. No
mutter how much a man may be attached to an umbrella, If it is uot attached to him with a chain be may as
well bid it an affectionate farewell whenever
he puts it down
In a corner and
turns away to
transact some
business.
However, this
rule, hard, fast
ond Inflexible as
It Is, does not
apply unless
the umbrella is
new and shiny and cost more than 39
cents at retail.
To keep an umbrella on down
through the years and hjive It on bund
to will to your grandchildren, select
one with a cracked handle and a hole
In the cover as large as a boilermnker's
hand. Then you can't lose It, or If you
do after repented attempts a small boy
will be around at your door with it
In the morning claiming a reward for
his honesty.
The Educated Mule.
An ancient farmer had a mule.
Though It had never been to school
Or tu idled books, still knew a night.
Although it couldn't rend or write,
For it could, even In the dark,
■Whenever called on, mnko Its mark.
