QftSflfc.)  Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, August 4, 1903
No. 79
The Government Gives $500
Towards ReBullding the
Bridge Street Bridge,
Mayor Burrell was prevented from
attending the city council meeting
last night on account of sickness. On
motion of Aid. Gaw, Mr. McCallum
took the chair. All the aldermen
were present,
A communication from E. Jacobs,
of Greenwood, making a proposition
to give Grand Forks and vicinity
a two-page "write-up" in a certain
mining journal, was laid over for one
week.
A ripple of applause was created in
the council chamber when the clerk'
read a letter from Minister of Finance
Tatlow, stating that the government
had set as,ide $500 for the rebuilding
of the Bridge street bridge, and that
the same would be forwarded on receipt of proper vouchers signed by the
mayor and city clerk. It appears that
the council has put through a pretty
clever piece of financing in this matter.
The government' gave $500, and the
Granby smelter 2100, to warns the
rebuilding of the bridge; then the
council let the contract for $575. If
the aldermen would only keep on building bridges, they might pay off the
city's bonded indebtedness before their
terms expire.
The usual number of bills were ordered paid.
Aid. Gaw stated that there were
ten applicants for city water in the
Buckle addition who would be willing
to bear the expense of laying the pipe,
and perform the work to the satisfaction of the city engineer, if the city
would deduct the cost from their water
rates. The matter was referred to the
chairman of the water and light committee, with power to act.
' Similar action was taken on the application of Mr. Cameron, who made
a like proposition for water in his new
residence on Fifth street, near Observation mountain.
Mid. McLellan stated that the city
owed Mr. W. K. C. Manly $30 rent
for the use a second-hand wagon. He
thought it would be cheaper to buy it
outright at $65. The chairman of
the board oi works was authorized to
do so. ■
Aid. McLellan stated that the city
team was having a good time at pres-
eht doing nothing, and suggested that
it might be a good idea to put it to
work improving the grade on the Winnipeg avenue hill near Mr. Henderson's
residence. Mr. Gaw took the same
view. The matter was left to the
discretion of the chairman of the board
of works, and as that gentleman and
Aid. McLellan are closely related,
the prospects of the city team idling
away much more time ara not very
bright.
Aid. Peterson drew attention to the
dangerous condition of Bridge street
niar the C. P. C. bridge. He thought
a fence should be built along the river
bank.    In the present condition   of
the street, there was danger, on dark,
nights or in case of runaways, of teams
going over the embankment. This
might also happen to pedestrians. The
matter was discussed for some time,
and then referred to a committee consisting of Mr. Peterson and the chairman of the board of works.
On motion of Aid. Gaw and Peterson, the road tax by-law passed its
first and second readings.
Grand Forks riding now leads all
the interior' districts, with the exceptant of Nelson, in the number of registered voters. Last night there were
810 names on the list, 45 having been
added to it during the day. It is now
confidently expected that when the list
closes on the 14th inst. there will be
nearly one thousand names on it. As
Nelson only leads by a few names at
present, the prediction is being freely
made that Grand Forks will be. the
banner district of the interior of the
province.
James Addison, the cotractor, left
last Saturday evening for Calgary,
where he will spend a week or more.
He was accompanied by his daughter.
While picking berries on Observation mountain last Thursday evening,
Mamie Barrett, eleven-year-old daughter of Miles Barrett, foreman at the
Granby smelter, received a vicious bite
from a rattlesnake. Prompt medical
treatment saved her life, and she has
now nearly recovered her usual health.
Some of the small children of the
North addition have recently acquired
the habit of going berry picking,
and at about 6 o'clock last Thursday
evening half a dozen of them were
busily engaged in this pastime on the
mountain side, which is covered with
a dense growth of vegetation and
brambles. Miss Barrett alarmed her
companions by uttering a piercing
scream and exclaiming that she had
been bitten by a rattler. They rushed
to her aid, and carried her to her
father's residence on Wellington avenue, a few hundred feet distant. An
examination showed a puncture below
the knee, and the limb began to swell
rapidly. Liberal doses of whisky were
administered pending the arrival of
Dr. Northrop, who had been summoned by telephone. On reaching the
house the doctor used the rapid
method of laying the wound freely
open, cauterizing, etc., and admister-
ing antidotal remedies internally. The
patient soon obtained relief and the
swelling was checked within three
hours.
Dr. K. C. MacDonald left last Saturday for Vancouver on a tjwo weeks'
pleasure trip.
John Houston, president of the
Provincial Conservative association,
says in the Nelson Tribune: No man
in the province has anything coming
to him from the Conservative party,
least of all Richard McBride. Premier
McBride and his colleagues have the
offices,  but  in order to retain them
they must first prove that they are
worthy of the high positions theyluue
gained.
Liberal associations were recently
organized at the Nickel Plate mine
and Princeton, as well as Camp McKinney. There are now live Liberal
associations at Camp McKinney, Fair-
view, Okanagan Falls, Hedley, Nickel
Plate, Princeton and Keremeos, so
that the Liberals in that district are
well organized. /
The excursion to Leon lake, which
will be held under the auspices of the
local lodges of the I. O. O. F., Knights
of Pythias, and the Ladies of the Maccabees, on Wednesday, the 12th inst.,
will undoubtedly be the biggest event
of its kind of the season. Hundreds
of people, young and old, will assuredly avail themselves of the opportunity of visiting the famous Washington summer resort, where over
1000 visitors are now encamped. The
train will leave here at about 6:30 or
7:00 a.m., and the run will b > made in
about four hours. An- excellent program has been preqared. There . will
be foot races for fat men, ladies and
children; boat and swimming races.
The prizes, some twenty-five in number, were donated by local business
men, and will be placed en exhibtion
in Geo. Massie's window, Bridge
street. The owners of the resort also
provide an excellent program. A
Ferris wheel is in operation, and a
celebrated diver will be engaged to
make a 125-foot dive into the lake.
Mayor Burrell has proclaimed the day
a civic holiday.
Mayor Burrell is confined to his
home, suffering from a severe attack
of sciatica.
John Houston, president of the
Provincial Conservative association,
has issued an official notice fixing Saturday, August 8th, as the date of the
holding of primaries in the Grand
Forks riding for the election of delegates for a Conservative nominating
convention to be held here on Saturday, August 15th, at 2:30 p.m. At
the various primaries the following
delegates will be elected: Grand
Forks, 6; Phoenix, 4; Columbia, 3;
Cascade, 1; Gladstone, 1. The primaries will be held at the above-
named places.
Born—In Grand Forks, on Sunday,
August 2, 1903, to Mr. and Mrs.
James A. Murray, a son.
Tomorrow, the 5th, aldermanic candidates will be nominated to fill the
vacancies now existing in the East
and Centre wards. Very little interest is taken in this election, and from
all appearances a couple of dark horses
will take their seats at the next coun
cil meeting.
The Rossland Miner (Conservative)
says: There are corporation influences within the Conservative party
that are trying to the best of their
abilities to keep the prospector and
the common people out of their just
and unquestionable rights and dispose of the East Kootenay coal lands,
now vested in the crown, for the sole
benefit of the C. P. R. or the Crow's
Nest coal monopoly.
Phoenix Right cf Way—It is a
popular belief that the V., V. & E.
branch of the Great Northern from
Grand Forks to Phoenix will not be
constructed for some little time. Yet
the right of way agents continue to
close deals for pieces of property on
the right of way in a manner that
gives rise to the belief that the days of
construction may not be so very far
away after all, says the Phoenix
Pioneer. About two weeks ago options were given on the Udion hotel
property, owned by Joseph H. Graham; the Miners' Exchange hotel,
owned by M. H. Roy and partner,
and the John Riordan residence, all
being in the lower end of "the city,' at
the junction of Banner street and Dominion avenue, where the railway survey crosses tiie latter thoroughfare.
The option was for but fifteen days,
and this week, before the time expired, a wire was received from Chas.
A. DesBrisay, the right of way agent,
from Spokane, to prepare the deeds
for this property, and the money
would be ready. While the amount
involved in these deals is not made
public, it is understood to be in the
neighborhood of $6000. The general
public will await with interest the
next move in this railway game, and
see whether James J. Hill's agents
will keep on buying up Phoenix
realty without doing something on
construction account one of these fine
days.
Wm. Spier, chairman of the board
of school trustees, offers a medal to the
Grand Forks boy or girl heading the
provincial list of entrance pupils.
The Grand Forks public school will
reopen   on   Monday next, the   10th
inst.
The Sun will be sent to new i subscribers from now until after the election for 25 cents.

While the Liberal party in this
part of the province appears to be,
metaphorically, up in tbe air and
tossed about by various atmospheric
currents, without platform guidance
or leadership, the Conservative
party is rent in twain and thrown
into a chaotic uproar by numerous
self-imposed leaders, and a variety
of platform declarations that puzzle
the expounders of party doctrine.
The first man of the province today
goes up and down the country telling his disciples thus and so is the
policy of his government, while the
self-confessed Great I-Am of inland
Toryism, the immaculate John
Houston of the Nelson Tribune,
chairman of the Provincial Conservative association, and who has been
entrusted with the control of the executive department of the present
campaign, nullifies the. efforts of
Premier McBride by promulgating
a very different doctrine. It certainly would be a most singular
result if Mr. Houston should be
endorsed by his constituents, and
Mr. McBride be sustained by thc
election of a majority of the Conservative candidates! Verily, Mr.
Hltetori is the Joe Martin or "bete
nofr' of provincial Conservatism.
How to get rid of him is as great a
question to -he Conservatives as how-
to overcome thc Grits. Who has
made the mistake—Mr. McBride or
Mr. Houston? That the latter's
course is more in accord with public sentiment than the former's is
evidenced by the resolutions being
passed by interior Conservative associations. If Mr. Houston is sustained, how will Mr. McBride and
his injudicious and inexpedient
policy, which is so diametrically
opposite, be disposed of ? They say
Martin was shipped to this coast in
order to relieve the eastern Liberal
party of a disturbing element which
it could not bear up under, and
perhaps the Conservatives of this
province may profit by thq lesson
and export John to the eastern
coast.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of ihe Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by travei ng on
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, 'a per-
lect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort pf his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
'crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande

Just What You Want
Just When You Want It
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, 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.

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
Coke is arriving more^freely at
the Boundary Falls smelter. Should
it continue the second furnace will
be blown in again in a few days.
In the past it has been coming by
fits and starts. Only a steady supply will prove satisfactory.
The Sunset mine has been closed
temporarily on account of other
mines wishing to ship to the Boundary Falls smelter. The management have therefore, decided to accept custom ores and reserve their
own from the Sunset until the second third furuaces are blown in.
Bill White has been doing development work on his Granby and  Monitor group of claims,  situated on Volcanic mountain.    He drove  a tunnel
a distance of 60 feet, and has caught
; what appear   to be  a large body of
; pay   ore   with   neither wall in siflht.
The face of the tunnel has gained   a
' depth of 57 feet.    A surface showing
1125 feet distant may yet prove to be
the same lead.    It has been stripped
for   a   distance of   sixteen feet and
shows   up   good shipping ore.    Mr.
White thinks he has got the makings
of a good mine.
A party of mining men visited the
Roderick Dhu, in Long Lake camp,
last week. The Roderick Dhu is under bond to Thomas McDonnell, Drl
Simmons and other Greenwood men.
The party included a doctor, a dentist,
a lawyer politician, a prospector, and
a mining magnate. Some had ridden
before and some hadn't. The services
of the doctor and the druggist were
required next day; those of the dentist will be needed later on. The
Roderick Dhu has two veins of exceptionally high grade ore, values as
high as $40,000 to the ton having
been secured. Development work
will be begun immediately.—Greenwood Times.
Coke shortage -last week troubled
the Greenwood smelter to such an extent that one furnace had to be blown
out, leaving but one in commission
there, as well as one at: the Sunset
smelter.
The work of installing the new 150
horsepower boiler, manufactured by
the Jenckes Machine company, at the
Snowshoe mine, has been completed,
and it will be placed in commission as
soon as the government inspector
passes upon it.
Shipments of ore from the Oro Denoro are being increased.
