Captain Disbrowe Relocates
an Abandoned Claim on
,       North Fork
Development Work  Demon-
states It to Be Rich Beyond Calculation
Reports from the North Fork country state that Capt. Disbrowe, the
well known West word politician, has
struck it rich. Mr. Disbrowe went
up with Rood Supervisor Spraggett's
force of men to work on the Franklin road about two weeks ago. When
not working for the government, he
put in the time roaming about the
hills in search of mineral wealth.
Finally he ran across an abandoned
claim with an immense surface showing, which he immediately relocated.
Of the original stake there was nothing left but the heart, the lapse of
years having completely rotted
the rest of it. On the claim were also
found some human bones, nearly dissolved by age; some other bones, supposed to be the remalWi of a big grizzly
bear; the barrel of an old-fashioned
shotgun, half eaten away by rust, and
a remnant of what wus oifce a pick,
but which has been so badly used by
the fleeing years that it has almost
lost the semblance of that indispensable miner's implement. These j gruesome tinds tell a tale of a strange
tragedy in a by-gone age.
The claim is said to be a wonder,
and has caused unparalelled excitement among the government employees on the Franklin camp rood,
The captain has christened it The
Evening Sun, in honor of his favorite
newspaper. , ■
The captain had a long rest before
lie started on his present trip. He is
reported to be making good in hard
labor for this idleness now. He puts
in a ten-hour shift on the road and an
eight-hour shift doing development
work on his property, leaving but six
hours out of the twenty-four for meals
and sleep.       i
The work so far done on the claim
shows that tor variety of its ore bodies
it has no paralel in the history of min
ing. The first night's work the cap-
lain did on his property, he uncovered
immense ore bodies of chalcocite, co-
vellite, bornite, chalcopyrite, cuprite,
tellurite, malachite and azurite copper. This remarkable find raised
the captain's spirits considerably, and
the next night he visited another section of the claim with his pick and
, shovel. Before morning, he says, he
discovered well defined leads of native,
sylvanite mid calaverite gold ore. During the third shift he put in on his
property he claims to have uncovered
huge bodies of argentite, pyrargyrite,
cerargyrite and argentiferous galena
silver ores. Such common ores us
magnetite and hematite iron may be
found in large vuantities on every
portion of the claim. Niecolite and
gersdorfite nickel and cobalt ore has
also been discovered in paying quantities. Bssides these leading ore deposits, the captain claims to have
found traces of the following minerals;
Sphalerite" and zincite zinc; wolframite
and scheelite tungsten; uraninite uranium; eassiteritc and stannite tin;
molybdenite   molybdenum;  cinnabar
mercury; pyrolusite maganese; galena
and cerussite lead; fluor spar and
cryolite fluorine; chromite chromium;
greenockite cadmium; tetradymite and
bismutite bismuth; sodium bromide
bromine; colemanite boron; orpiment
and arsenopyrite arsenic; stibnite antimony, and bauxite aluminum. The
most remarkable feature concerning
the captain's discoveries is that some
of these ores" have never before
been found in the Boundary district.
They are adapted to almost every class
of mauufacture, and Mr. Disbrowe
stands on excellent chance of becoming a captain of industry in the near
future.
Midway's Good Luck
News has been received from Midway to the effect that the connection
of that town with the Great Northern system at a very early date is
practically assured. But it is not
known yet whether or not the branch
running from Curlew to Midway
will be part of the main line of the
V., V. & E. railway.
According to a statement made by
a prominent Great Northern official,
the line from Curlew to Midway will
be completed within a fortnight.
The work of laying the track will
begin within a week. As ihe dis
tance is only fifteen miles, tbe task
will not be a difficult one even in
the time mentioned.
The circulation of this report has
caused spme excitement in Midway.
Property owners who have held on
through faith for several years feel
that a better era is about to dawn
for them. With the certainty of
early construction westward by the
Great Northern, and the probability
of an answering activity on the part
of the C.P.R., Midway looks forward
to being a railway centre of no mean
importance.
League of Municipalities
Delegates from the various mu-
nicipalties of British Columbia will
meet in New Westminster on September 29 for the purpose of forming a union of municipalities such
as exists in Ontario, and is also under consideration in Manitoba.
Mayor Stevens, of Karriloops, who
some months ago took the initiative
in this scheme by sending out letters
seeking opinions on the advisability
of it, when in New Westminster recently had ah interview with the
mayor of that city. Mr. Stevens
has received favorable replies from
nearly thirty municipalities. It is
thought that the best time for the
convention will be during the Dominion fair, and it will be called lo
order at 2 p.m. on the date mentioned. Both city and rural municipalities will be represented, the following having written Mayor Stevens riromising their support to the
movement: Coquitlam, Slocan, Nanaimo, Salmon Arm, North Vancouver, Duncan's, r.umberland, Armstrong, Kelowna, Trail, Burnaby,
Eburne, Grand Forks, Maple Ridge,
Langley, Victoria, South Vancouver,
Agassiz, Hatzig, Enderby, Surrey,
Ladysmith, (ireenwood, Fernie,
Vernon, New Westminster and Ab-
botsford. The convention will meet
on both the 29th and 30th of September, and while the greater part
will, no doubt, be consumed in organizing, a few practical papers on
subjects of importance will be read,
among these being on "Good Roads,"
another on the "Municipal Clauses
Aot" and one on "Uniform Public
Accounting." '
NEWS OFTHE CITY
Ladies of the Maccabees Give
a Farewell Party to jwo
i
of Its Members
Contraband Cyclone Knocks
Out C.P.R. Roundhouse
in One Round
A very pleasant surprise party
was tendered Mrs. M. J. Taylor and
daughter, Miss Lilly, at the home of
Mrs. Fred Reid, on upper First
street, last night by the members of
Josephine Lodge No. 10, Ladies of the
Maccabees. Mrs. Taylor and daughter will remove to Spokane next
week, and the gathering was in the
nature a farewell party. Over fifty
members of the order and friends of
the guests of honor were present.
A meritorious musical program was
rendered during the early part of
the evening. At the conclusion of
the musical numbers a cut glass
berry dish, silver mounted, waa presented to Mrs. Taylor, and a solid
silver pudding dish was given te her
daughter. An address, expressing
profound regret at* the departure
from the city of their guests and conveying to them the highest appreciation of the members of the lodge for
the valuable services they had ren
dered the order, was read by Mrs
Sloper, finance keeper of the local
hive. The presentation was made
by Mrs. John Rogers, acting lady
commander. The address was beau
tifully executed on parchment, being
artistically decorated with the colors
of the lodge—red, white and black
The recipents were too deeply moved
to make an extended reply, but in a
few appropriate words thanked the
members for the esteem in which
they were held and for the many
kindnesses showered upon them.
After this incident refreshments, including ice cream and berries, were
served. The gathering broke up at a
late hour by all joining in the song,
"God Be With You Till We Meet
Again."
A miniature cyclone from Kansas
visited the city last Friday evening at
about 7 o'clock. In some manner it
managed to elude the custom!) officers
at Carson, and crossed the international boundary line duty free. Before it re-crossed the line it completely
demolished the C.P.R. roundhouse and
a hay hay stack a short distance from
the city. The C.P.R. company is of
the opinion that the cyclone came in
over the Great Northern, but up to
the present has failed to establish a
clear case, heneu it is not probable
that the matter will interfere with
the proposed extension of the latter
road into thc Similkaincen. The attention of the tariff commission is
directed to this incident. All funnels
for the manufacture of funnel-shaped
clouds should be placed on the prohibitory list.
Geo. A. llcljeod, manager of the
McKinley Mines, Ltd., has returned
from Franklin camp. He reports
that Road Supervisor Spraggett is doing good work extending the wagon
to the camp. Two miles have already
been completed, leaving but seven
miles more to be built.   Of   this dis
tance the government is to construct
four miles, and the McKinley company
three miles. The road that is now
being built is of a permanent and substantial nature.
Mrs. Cash and son, of Montreal,
arrived in the city last night, and will
visit at the home of the former's sister, Mrs. M. Burrell, for a fortnight.

weeks on this trip, and will be here
frequently in future. W. C. Thomas,
the new smelter superintendent,

WEST WARD FIRE
J. H. Hodson's Store and the
Thatcher - Nelson  Block
Totally Destroyed
Loss Will Aggregate   About
$9000; Insurance Only
$2800
About 4 o'clock this morning fire
broke out in the warehouse in the rear
of J. H. Hodson's general store, on
Columbia avenue in the West end,
and in a remarkably short time the
building and Mr. Hodson's stock, together with the Thatcher-Nelson block,
adjoining, were burned to the ground.
The flames were nat discovered until
th ey had gained quite a headway,
consequently when the department arrived on the scene there was not th e
remotest chance of saving the buildings. When the Columbia firemen
arrived the entire block occupied by
Mr. Hodson was enveloped in flames.
The down-town department reached
the scene shortly afterward, and both
did good work in keeping ihe fire from
spreading.
The fire was first discovered by an
employee of the Rose Hill dairy, and
he hurried down town and turned in
an alarm. As the dairy is over a
mile distance from the city, tho headway the flames hod gained by the time
the department arrived can well be
imagined.
The building occupied by Mr. Hodson's store was owned by Hay, McCallum i!c Wright, who also had their real
estate and mining office in it. The
second story was formerly used by the
Columbia Presbyterian church, but
for a year past it has been used for
hall purposes. The building was
valued at about $1500. It was insured foP $900. Mr. Hodson estimates
the loss to his stock at about $5000;
insurance $1500. Hay, McCallum it
Wright place their loss on office effects at about $500; uninsuredr The
Thatcher-Nelson block, which was also
totally destroyed, was a fine two-
story structure, but has been unoccupied for some time. It was owned
by the Colonial Investment it Loan
company, of Toronto, and was valued
at 82000. It was only partially insured.
The origin of the fire is a mystery.
It is supposed to have been caused by
an unknown man sleeping "IF a jag
near'the building, and who probably
started the blaze by dropping a lighted match while attempting to light
his pipe.
The loss sustained by Mr. Hudson
is a severe blow to him, and much regret is expressed by the citizens generally at the unfortunate catastrophe.
He has worked hard to build up a
thriving business, and to see it wiped
out in a few minutes by the fin* fiend
is certainly a sore trial.
A printing plant has arrived in
Midway, and the first issue of a new
paper wilt make its appear either next
Friday or a week from that date.
In another week or two it is expected that the new Greenwood water
works will be ready for use, the water
being taken from Lind creek, and the
system also supplying the adjoining
town of Anaconda. ®ljf -EtanUuj &un

It is useless to ask Midway
whether the V., V. & E. is going to
benefit that town or not.
By putting all the cabinet ministers on.tho stump, the McBride government won a victory in the Alberni by-eleotion last Saturday.
The electors of this city are soon
to have an opportunity to settle the
much-vexed liquor question at the
polls. If they don't get what they

blame on the newspapers.
The man who expects us to write,

The Cascade license fight was
exhumed this week. We are informed that the matter contains
a sufficient number of plots and
counterplots for a modern melodrama, and The Sun dramatist has
been instructed to construct one in
blank verse for the local stage. The
principal dramatis pcrsonic will be
an intriguer, four license commissioners, an ex-ditto, two hotelkeepers,
and a telegraph wire from Grand
Forks to Victoria. The comedy
part will be taken by the man in
Victoria who chops off official heads
on telegraphic recommendations;
the intriguer will revoke licenses;
the commissioners will issue licenses,
and the barkeepers will continue to
do business as if nothing had happened, until threatened with arrest.
The audience will be composed of
the electors, who will vow to condemn the actors at the polls, but
when the next election comes around
will have forgotten all about the
play and players.

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The electricians at the Granby
smelter had exciting times during
the electric storm this evening.
When Electrician C. E. Lane entered
substation the found a Hame about
6ft. high,caused by lightning having
struck the high tension line of the
Cascade Power company. His presence o.f mind probably averted serious damage being done. Sizing up
the situation at glance, ho seized an
axe and cut the ground wire. That
ended the trouble in the substation.
Electrician Gus Parker, in charge of
the power house, also reports having
had a lively time with the lightning in his department.

Dog, Pony and Monkey Show
A dog, pony and monkey circus new
to this country, will mate its initial
bid for popular and permanent favor
this season when Cozad's Equine, Simian and Canine Paradox will exhibit
here in the near future . The name
of Cozad in the show business of this
country is not well known at present,
but to professionals who have made
European tours, it is very familiar as
being the oldest < and best known exhibition of this kind on the continent.
The Cozad trafle-mark has been popularly known in Europe for many years
the show having been handed down
from father to son for several generations through a long line of showmen
The Cozad family have determined to
adopt this country as their permanent
home, and have brought their entire
equipment to this country, and when
they appear here they will present the
largest and most complete dog, pony,
monkey and goat circus ever exhibited
in Canada. Traveling in their own
special train, and erecting mammoth
waterproof tents, they will present an
entertainment that will appeal strongly to ladies and children. At the
conclusion of the exhibition the latter
will be given free rides upon the backs
of the pretty, demure Shetland ponies,
carefully guarded by competent uniformed attendants. Two exhibitions
will be given daily, one in the afternoon, after school hours and one at
night. There will be over three hundred animal actors, and these include
highly-bred Shetland ponies, dogs of
all kinds and monkeys from the various trilws of the earth. There will
be animal clowns to make the children
laugh and a daily parade upon the
principal streets to show the public
the many wonders of the animal circus. Conzad's California Dog and
Pony show will exhibit here in the
afternoon and evening on Wednesduy
next.

Whisky straight is the cause and a

they give the devil more than his due.

People who commence taking drugs
for imaginary ills invariably end by
tiking them from necessity.
In general, widows do not have near
as much fun as they are supposed to
have.
One of the advantages we have over
the ancients is that we are still living.
According to the tombstones, cemeteries contain more good people- than
ever lived.
An editor landed in British Columbia twenty years ago with 15 cents in
his pocket. He was poor but honest.
So were his parents before him. He
immediately started a country weekly;
attended strictly to business; went to
church-regularly; never drank, smoked,
chewed, swore, stole, lied or beat his
creditors. This last fact was due to
the circumstance that he had no creditors. Nobody would trust hiin. Today that editor is worth 8100,000,
and is living in retirement at ease.
His old age is green. His accumulation is owing partly to his frugality
and many virtues and partly to other
causes. A Southeast Kootenay coal
iclaim netted him 890,999.99. The
rest of his for he saved- himself while
growing up with the country. Go
tiiou and do likewise!

Yes, and your strength too. Stop
coughing and get rid of that catarrh.
The only remedy is Catarrhozone, which
goes to the diseased tissues along with
air you breathe; it can't fail to reach
the source of the trouble; it's bound
to kill the germs, and as for healing
up soro places, nothing can surpass
Catajrhozone. If you don't get instant relief and ultimate cure you will
at least yet your money back, for Catarrhozone is guaranteed to cure catarrh in any part of the system. You
run no risk—therefore use Catarrhozone—at our expense if not satisfied.
