Supreme Court Gives  Road
Right of   Way Near
Midway
SUNSET SIGNALS
If every man who is mentioned
for mayor has a different policy, it
would be n pnyi ng investment for
some- one to open a policy -shop in
Grand Forks.
C. P. R.,   However,  Wants
Damages for Wrongful
Possession
Mr. Justice Morrison, in supreme
court chain bore, has granted an order empowering the Vancouver,
Victoria & Eastern railway to take
possession of the atrip of land a few
miles west of Midway which nearly
500 men fought for a few weeks ago.
Since the. trouble the company has
(.■one to work to secure a legal right
to tiie land in dispute, and all the
preliminaries, have now been settled.
However, the Canadian Pacific
hns not quite got through yet. An
action for damages against the Van-
c.iuver, Victoria & Eastern has been
commenced for forcible and wrongful possession of that part of lot
:'703 that was the cause of the trouble. Ahout $8000 damages are
claimed.
CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS
The window decorations in many
of our stores are both artistic and
appropriate, and in many cases they
would do credit to the metropolitan
window dresser. They are thoroughly emblematic of the season.
J. H. Hodson & Cn.,:the West end
merchants, have a typical pioneer's
log cabin in their window, with
Santa Claus, loaded down with
' Christmas wares, on the,roof, evidently meditating on the problem
how to squeeze his portly form
through a diminutive stovepipe.
Everything that the housewife needs
for her Christmas dinner is tastefully
displayed in the window, which is
decorated with holy and evergreens.
W. H. Itter & Co.'s window displays a, mammoth Santa Claus in
front of an open grate—quite an appropriate idea, as Santa usually
hitches his reindeers in front of this
place when in town during the holiday season. There is a great variety
of the latest ideas in toyland well
arranged in the window, and there
arc carloads of the seine wares to bo
found inside thc store.
Lord Arthur Rainey, of the Emporium, has a display of goods that
should satisfy the most fastidious
user of the soothing weed. He says
even the best tobacconist in dear old
London couldn't show a better stock
of cigars and pipes.
' R. F. Petrie, the stationer, has
one of the handsomest show windows in the city. His stock is replete with pretty and useful Christmas presents.
Jeff Davis & Co., thc general mer-
chnnts, have pretty displays of
goods useful in every department of
the household.
W. C. Chalmers complains of a
lack of window Bpace to display his
stock to advantage; but he is there
with the goods—Christmas goods.
Anytqing in the fruit or confectionery line, as well as the besi. brands
of cigars, can be found at hiB store.
The Sun has often noticed that
when a limn has nothing ^purlieu
iar to sny, he generally talks for
hours. Some writers write on the
same principle.
"Honest John" is a mayoralty
candidate. This aiinoulicement is
far-reaching. It embraces every
man in Grand Forks whose first
name is John.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
City Council Finally  Parses
Aldermen's Indemnity
By-Law
There are a great number of men
in Grand Forks who are not mentioned for mayor that The Suh
would be pleased to see enter the
race. We would really like to know
how gracefully they can take defeat.
The Suu had intended to cost a
few shells among the local politicians
today merely as a reconnaissance 1.6
ascertain the range of thc enemy's
camp, but refrained from doing so on
account of the season. We therefore wish even our enemies as merry
a Christmas as it is possible tu enjoy without our good-will.
En passant, it might bo remarked
that it is a wise candidate that
knows his own policy.

More Deadly Than Famine
Neglected catarrh sooner  or   later
causes consumption which destroys more
human beings than famine and war
combined. The way Catarrhozone
cures catarrh is vrry, very simple; it
first kills the germs that cause the irritation; then, by soothing away the
congestion and inflammation it cures
the discharge, hawking and dropping
in the throat. "I suffered so continually from nasal catarrh," writes Ernest R. Iinkiii of Rosemont, "that I
scarcely knew what it was to be free
from headache and pains over theeyes.
Catarrhozone relieved me at once and
made a thorough cure." No other
remedy cures like Catarrhozone—try
it for your next colli. Sold hy all

Polmatier Sisters Give a Delightful Entertainment at
Opera House
Read The Sun—$1.00 per year.
At the .adjourned meeting of the
city council last night the aldermen's
by-law was reconsidered and finally
passed. Aid. Brown's cemetery bylaw was partially considered iu committee, and a contract for electric light
poles was let.
There was a large audience at the
Grand Forks opera house last night
to enjoy the perfortiiahpe given by
the graceful and charming Polmatier
sisters. The program was quite
varied, and every nuniher was honored with one or more recalls. The
entertainment was without doubi
the finest ever presented in ihe city,
and the Polniatier sisters are to be
congratulated not only for the or
chestra numbers, but solos and vo-
cal irios ns well. In fact, oui critics
proclaim it tlio best musical coin
liinntions tlmt ever visited Grand
Foil-s, while nil declare it most di
lightful nnd satisfying. MV. Charles
Hitchcock in his varied dramatic
monologues wns repeatedly encored,
and liroiight down the house lie
possesses great  pantomimic   power.
The union Christinas tree and en-
lertniiiincnt of the .Methodist and
Presbyterian Sunday schools is being held in the opera house this
evening, nnd the rising generation
is being loaded down with sweetmeats. It wns a wise thing to hold
(his event two dnys before Christinas, as the youngsters will apain he
in condition to tackle the; same diet
on that day.
J. B. Henderson, who' has charge
of the construction of the West
Kootenay Power & Light company's

city the lirst of the week. The Phoenix building will be completed in

will be commenced on the substation
in this city.
A survey of the location for tin-
proposed bridge on Fourth street
has been made this week by F. M.
Kerby, P.L.S.
W. I. Bassett, one of thc engineers
of the Midway it Vernon, returned
to Grniul Forks this week.
The Grand Forks publio school
closed at noon today for a two weeks'
vacation during the holidays. The
exercises consisted of recitations by
the scholars. Christmas trees well
loaded with presents were also prominent features.
Thc Kettle Valley line surveyors
have now reached a point thirty mile

SCRUGGS'   SIEGE
OF  NECKTIEPHOID
THOMAS SCRUGGS, on Christmas aajr,
Gut packages galore.
Until he Wondered If there could
By chance be any more.
He opened each one when It came
And slowly grew enraged,
And not a package held a thing
That his grtut wrath assuaged.
Fer each one. he It long nr short
Or slim or thlrk and fat.
Contained. In varied shape and form.
A gaudy new cravat.
* The London Daily Telegraph has
the following words of praise concerning the British Columbia apple: Buyers and sellers yesterday were alike
delighted hy a lirst sample of apples
sent over by the agent-general for
British Columbia, as an illustration of
what the province can, do in this direction. The idea of consigning these
400 cases of apples to Messrs. Garcia,
Jacobs k Co. for public sale in the
great Bow street auction rooms wus
less in expectation of a commercial
profit than for the direct purpose of
calling attention in the fruit trade to
the excellency of Canada's wares, and
incidentally encouraging Euglish
growers with pome means to emigrate
anrl try their fortunes in a land holding out many advantages to them.
Experts were agreed that the consignment sold yesterday was surprisingly satisfactory, clean, bright and
well packed, the different varieties
showing the tiigest excellencies of
their kind, and in each case just what
buyers wanted, a point to which, it
must be said with regret, our home
growers iu niaiiy instances pay but
little attention. "The majority of apple growers in this country," an expert declared while the frtnt was bo-
ing sold, "are half a century behind
the times. Itis these who complain
of the unprofitableness of English horticulture; the men who know their
busiii"ss say nothing, but make good
profits in silence." Canadian growers
start with ".he advantage of a government supervision at the place of export, which is jealously careful of the
Dominion's good repi.t* in foreign
inarliets,aiid tlieknowlcdge of this acts
ill a most excellent way in enforcing
the best grading and packing nt the
orchards. Exhibitions of produce
from Canada are to be held nil over
England during the iiest few months,
and if the home grower is wise he will
"wake up" and enter into a friendly
rivalry, which is directed more against
other producers than himself, in a vast
and ever-increasing market.
" 'TIS EVEB THUS I"
" -Tls    ever    thus!*"    moaned    Thomas
Scruggs;
"In every Christmas wreck
I am the sufferer who gets
It always in the neck."
The ties were green and red and brown
And black and pink and blue,
With stripes and dots and funny Unei
Of truly awful hue.
At last he fretted so about
The things that he fell 111,
And then, to add to all his woes,
There was a doctor's bill.
Today, when asked about the case,
He seems to grow annoyed
And answers that he suffered from
K siege of necktiephold.
—Judge.
The Yuletide Los.
A custom at one time prevalent In
England and still observed In some of
the northern districts of the old country Is that of placing an Immense log
of wood—sometimes tbe root of a great
tree—In the wide chimney place. This
Is often called tbe Yule log. and It was
on Christmas ere that It WU put on
tbe wide hearth. Around tt would
gather tbe entire family, and Its entrance was tbe occasion of ■ great deal
of ceremony. There were music and
rejoicing, while tbe one authorized to
light tt was obliged to have clean
hands. It was always lighted with a
brand left over from tbe log ef a previous year.
Croup Is Deadly!
It must be stopped quickly. Nothing so sure as Nerviline. Give it internally and rub it on chest and
throat—croup soon vanishes. No
doctor can write a more etlicient prescription than Poison's Nerviline,
which reaches the trouble and euros
quickly. The marvelous power of
Nerviline .will surprise you; it's the
best household remedy for coughs,
colds, sore chest, croup, and infernal
pain of every kind. Large bottles
have been sold by all dealers for nearly fifty years at 2oc.
