Price Is $150,000, aud Bond Runs for
18 Months, Dating From April
1st Last.
James Rutley, day clerk at the
Yale, returned Sunday evening from
a short visit to Chewelah, Wash.
At a general meeting of the shareholders of the McKinley Mines.Ltd.,
owning the McKinley and Hanna
mineral claims, Franklin camp, held
here today, a working bond for
8150,000 was granted Miles M.
O'Brien, Jr., of New York, as trustee for New York and Boston capitalists. The life of tbe bond covers
a period of 18 months, from April 1.
The McKinley mine has one of
the largest copper-gold surface show
ings in Pritish Columbia, tbe development work to date consisting principally of open cuts. At present 12
men are employed. A tunnel is be
ing driven to tap the ore body at a
depth of 125 feet. The ore is self-
fluxing in character, the values averaging 810 per ton.
Geo. A. McLeod, general manager
of the McKinley company, in an interview tonight, stated that he negotiated the deal during his recent trip
to New York and Boston. The bond
has been acquired by a group of capi-
t dists which proposes to undertake
the development of the claims on a
very extensi ve scale.
Twenty other claims in the same
camp, water rights and a townsite of
320 acres, have also been transferred
by Mr. McLeod to thc eastern syndicate. ;
The deal is fraught with great
possibilities for Grand Forks, as it iB
likely to result in the opening up
of the rich, mineral resources of the
North Fork country.
The Montreul <fe Boston Consolidated company has purchased the
Morrison mine, situate about one
mile from the Mother Lode. It is
understood that the shareholders of
* the Morrison Mines, Ltd., get one
share of the Montreal & Boston stock
for every 30 thoy own in the old
company. In order to ship ore the
new owners will have to build a spur
of railway,
\V. H. Creitz, the contractor, expects to leave for the Similkameeu
country in a day or two on an investigating tour.

slipped from his hands. The hook
caught in his coat, and the unwinding of the reel had made a perfect
imitation of a, rattlesnake in action.
The dragging rod frightened the
horses, and the noise it made by being dragged through the grass and
brush scared tbe fishermen. The
facts of this adventure have gradually leaked out, and the youth of
the city have purchased small rattles,
with which they salute Mr. Penman,
to remind him of his thrilling experience with the huge rattler. It
is understood that Mr. Penman will
write a vivid description of, this
episode for publication in the Wide

As usual, the first snake story of
the season has found its way to The
Sun office. Yesterday morning a
bookkeeper (who prides himself on
being an all-around sport) in one of
our leading stores and two companions started up the North Fork
on. a fishing expedition. When
within three miles of Bannock City
the trio concluded to speed their
horses in order to settle a decidedly warm and rather acrimonious
argument as to which one of the
animals possessed the best staying
qualities, When they had got fairly
under way, they were startled by a
whirring noise in their rear, which,
they aver, sounded for all the world
like an agitated rattlesnake. As the
noise persisted in following them,
they were afraid to stop. They
did not even dare to look hack, reasoning that if the snake, which they
imagined to be about the size of the
slimmer resort sen serpent, caught a
glimpse of their sweet countenances,
it might have the tendency to make
him redouble bis efforts to reuch
them. Onward they flew, but still
Bannock City was a couple of miles
away. That wild ride has never
been equaled in the history of the
North Fork country. When they
entered Bannock City tbey made
such an uproar that thc inhabitants
thought it was the rumbling of the
first train over the proposed North
Fork extension of the Kettle Valley
line, and thc entire population of
that city, consisting of half a dozen
prospectors and a colony of gophers,
assembled on Volcanic plaza to bid
it welcome. But when the prospectors and the gophers realized
that they had been victimized, they
retraced their steps lo their former
places of abode ; and the frenzied
horsemen, their mounts being now
thoroughly fagged, came to a sudden halt. Simultaneously with the
halting of thc steads the rustling
noise in thc grass ceased. The horsemen picked up courage and looked
backward, but were unable to see
anything of his snakeship. A thorough investigation was made, and it
was discovered that when the flag
dropped for the horse race, Dawson

The Burley steam drill which has
recently been installed at the Seattle
mine, was placed in commission yesterday, and worked very satisfactorily.
Work was discontinued at thc
Winnipeg mine'last week, the pumps
drawn, and the agreement for a
bond for $15,000 thrown up by the
Granby company. After spending
considerable money and a couple of
months' time, besides shipping several cars of ore, Superintendent
Hodges decided that he would do
nothing further, owing to lack of
of values, etc.
G. B. Jenkinson, vice president of
the Spokane & British Columbia
railroad, has returned to Spokane
from his automobile trip over the
survey from that city to Keller. He
and H. W. Warrington, the chief
engineer, Btarted for Republic, but
the machine broke down two miles
from Keller and they walked in.
Interviewed by a Spokesman-Review reporter, Mr. Jenkinson said:
"The'Hot Air line,'as you call it,
will be extended into Spokane at
once. When I left here I was undecided whether it would be extended
from Republic to Keller, or to the
Columbia river or to Spokane. The
wonderful resources along the route
made me decide to build to Spokane.       y|
"Tha engineers are hard at work
now. THey are preparing cross-'
sections and specifications, which
will be completed June 1. Thc
whole contract for the 140 miles will
be let to ono man."
The entire staff,of The Sun has
been laid up with the grip during
tho past two or three days, hence
the paper is a couple of seconds late
again.
BONE-DUFORD.
Married—In thc Catholic church,
in this city, on Monday', April 24th,
at 8 a.m., Joseph Bone and Miss
Valdez Duford, both of city, Rev.
Father Pacuel performing the ceremony.
The groom is conductor on one of
the Great Northern trains running
between this city and Phoenix, and
has been a resident of the city but a
short time. The bride is a daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Duford, of the
Queens notel. Fully fifty people
witnessed the ceremony, Miss Maud
Duford, a sister of the bride, was
bridesmaid, and Joseph Thatcher
stood up with thu groom. After
tho ceremony, an elaborate wedding
breakfast was served at the Queens,
Plates were laid for twenty-eight in-
vted guests, and good cheer reigned
supreme for an hour and a half
around the banquet board. Immediately after tbe repast the happy
couple boarded the Great Northern
south-bound train for a honeymoon
trip to Spokane and Seattle. They
were given a rousing Bend-off by being deluged with g shower of rice,
old shoes and good wishes. On
their return they will take up housekeeping on Government avenue, opposite the Queens hotel.
Mr. and Mr. Bone were thc recipients of many costly and valuable

Mr. J. D. Farrell, executive agent
of thc Great Northern Railway company, states that he understands
that the contracts have already been
let for the line from Oroville, Wash.,
to Hedley City, a distance of 50
miles. It is expected that construction will be completed this year
from Midway or Republic to Hedley, the alternative routes being under consideration in order that tho
one offering the easier grado may be
chosen. The completion of tho line
to the point mentioned this year
means tnat transportation facilities
will be given as far as Hedley, where
none exists at present, and this will
be of great benefit to thut section of
the country. It is expected tbat construction ganps will be at work within 30 days.

TUESDAY, APRIL 25, 1905
A report was in circulation last
week that the friends of W. C.
Wells, M.L.A. for Columbia, intended recommending him for the lieutenant-governorship in the event of
Sir Henri Joly de Lotbiniere resigning. Mr. Wells has made the follow statement: "I have no aspirations whatever fn that direction.
The suggestion probably came from
some of my friends who are prominent in the lumbering industry, but,
while I am appreciative of the honor
they wish to do me, I must decline
to allow my name to be used for
that position. 1 intend to devote
myself entirely to lumbering matters now, and my mill at Palliser
will take up all my time not occupied by parliamentary duties."
The rush into the Similkameen
district still continues, and Grand
Forks is sending its quota of fortune
seekers. It is evident that the announcement by the Great Northern
of its intention to build there this
summer will give that district a lively boom; with its usual inflation of
values in real estate and mining
properties. But when the country
regains its normal condition, ■ Grand
Forks will be the best and largest
city on the V., V. & E. railway in
the province.
When a father spends three or
four thousand dollars for a son's
college education and gets back only
a third-rate football player, he has
not even done as well as the rustic
who buys a gold brick. The lattei

The great naval battle in the far

Frank Oliver, the new minister of

Ottawa as soon as the nominations
are made today.
Wbat is the largest gold brick
ever negotiated for? Is Emperor
Nicholas the distinguished acquisi-
tor?
It depends on tho expertness of
thc sportsman whether a bird in the

British Columbia Smelter Was Threatened With a Tie-Up Yesterday.
The Men Walked Out But Returned
to Worked Again After a Short
Conference.
Greknwood, April 24.—An incipient strike was on at the British
Columbia Copper company's smelter
here today, the converter liners having gone out because refused
an increase of 25 cents a day. For
some time past they have been paid
$2.75 per day of 12 hours. Acting
Manager Williams went to Phoenix
and engaged 12 men to take the
strikers' places, but refused to go to
work as soon as they discovered that
they were to take the positions vacated by the strikers.
Manager Keffer is absent west with
the Underwood party, and Supt.
McAllister is in New York, and
it was feared that unless the men's
demands were complied with the
other smelter employees and the
men at the mine would go out in
sympathy with the converter men.
This was obviated this evening, how.
ever, when the converter men voluntarily returned to their old places
at the old rate of wageB.
Harry Shallenburg will start active operations on the Don Pedro,
adjoining the Crescent, in Greenwood camp, this week. The whim
is all ready for hoisting.
This Medicine Is Breathed.
That's why it is sure to cure ca-

source of the disease—.its healing vapor repairs the damage caused by catarrhal inflammation. Catarrhozone
always cures because it goes into/those
tiny cells and passages that ordinary
remedies can't reach; goes where the
disease actually is. ' Impossible for Catarrhozone to fail, as any doctor wiil
tell you. Don't be misletid into thinking there is anything so good as Catarrhozone—use it and you'll soon say

f 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 the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling 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. Thc equipment 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
CQmfort of his guests. No more
pleatsant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is .provided by these excursions.

Our Little Life
The Worldly Hope men set their Hearts upon
Turns Ashes—or it prospers; anrl anon,
Like Snow upon the Desert's dusty Face,
Lighting a  little hour or two—was gone.
Think, in this batter'd Caravanserai
Whose Portals   are alternate Night and Day,
How Sultan after Sultan with   his Pomp
Abode his destin'd Hour, and went his way.
For some we loved, the loveliest and the best
That from his Vintage rolling Time has prest;
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to rest.
And we, that now make merry in tho Room
They left, and Summer dresses in new bloom,
Ourselves must we beneath the Couch of Earth,
Descend—ourselves to make a Couch—for whom?
Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend, **"J
Before we, too, into the Dust descend;
Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie
Sans   Wine, sans Song,  sans Singer, and—sans End !
Why, all the Saints and Sages who discuss'd
Of the Two Worlds so learnedly are thrust
Like foolish Prophets forth; their Words to Scorn
Are scatter'd, and their Mouths are stopt with Dust.
Myself when young did eagerly frequent
' Doctor and Saint, and heard great argument
About it and about: but evermore
Came out by the same door where in I went
With them the seed of Wisdom did I sow,
And with my own hand wrought to make it grow ;
And this was all the Harvest that I reap'd—
"I came like Water, and like Wind I go.'"
Jnto this Universe, and Why, not knowing,
And Whence, like water willy-nilly flowing;
And out of it, as Wind along the Waste,
I know not Whither, willy-nilly blowing.
What, without asking, hither hurried Whence?
And, without asking, Whither, hurried hence !
Oh, many a Cup of this forbidden Wine
Must drown the memory of that insolence !
And fear not lest existence closing your
Accouht, and mine, should know the like no more;
The Eternal Saki, from that Bowl has pour'd
Millions of Bubbles like us, and will pour.
When You and I behind the Veil are past,
Oh but the long, long while the World shall last,
Which of our Coining and Departure heeds
As the Sev'n Seas should heed a pebble cast.
A 'Moment's halt—a momentary taste
Of Being from ihe Well among the Waste—
And Lo!—the phantom Caravan has reach'd
The Nothing it set out from—Oh, make haste!
Would you that Spangle of Existence spend
About The Secret—quick about it. Friend!
A Hair perhaps dividos the False and True—
And upon what, prithee, does Life depend 1
0 threat of Hell and Hopes of Paradise!
One thing at least is certain—This Life, flies;
. One thing is certain and the rest is lies ;
The Flower that once has blown forever dies.
Strauge, is it not'I that of the myriads who
Before us pass'd the door if Darkness through
Not one returned to telj us of the Road,
Which to discover we must travel too.
Tne Revelations of Devout and Learn'd
Who rose before us, and as Prophets burn'd,
Are all but Stories, which, awokeVrom Sleep,
They told their fellows, and to Sleep return'd.
1 sent my Soul through the Invisible
Some letter of that After-life to spell;
And by and by my Soul returned to me,
And answer'd, "I Myself am Heav'n and Hell."
Heav'n but the Vision of fulfill'd Desire,
And Hell the Shadow of a Soul on fire,
Cast on the Darkness into which Ourselves,
So late emerg'd from, shall so soon expire.
We are no other than a moving row
Of Magic shadow-shapes that come and go
Round with the Sun-illumin'd Lantern held
In Midnight by the Master of the Show;
Impotent Pieces of the Game He plays
Upon this Checker-board of Nights and Days;
Hither and thither moves, and checks and slays,
And one by one back in the Closet lays.
THE BEST OF EVERYTHING.

PETER SANTURE, Proprietor
The Ball no, guest ion makes of Ayes and Noes,
But Right or Left as strikes the Player goes;
And He that toss'd you down into the Field,
He knows about it all—He knows—He knows!
The Moving Finger writes; and having writ,
Moves on; nor all your Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.
And that inverted Bowl they call the Sky,
Whereunder crawling coop'd we live and die,
Lift not your hands to It for help—for It
As impotently rolls as you or I.
What! out of senseless Nothing to provoke
A Conscious Something to resent the Yoke
Of unpermitted Pleasure, under pain
Of everlasting Penalties, if broke!
What, from his helpless Creature be repaid
Pure Gold for what he lent us dross-allay'd—
Sue for a Debt we never did contract.
And cannot answer—Oh, the sorry trade I
Oh Thou, who did'st with pitfall and with gin
Beset the Road I was to wander in,
Thou wilt not with Predestin'd Evil round
Enmesh, and then impute my Fall to Sin!
Oh, Thou, who Man of baser Earth did'st make
And ev' n with Paradise devise the Snake;
For all the Sin wherewith the Face of Man
. Is blacken'd—Man's Forgiveness give—and take !
—Omar Khayyam.
