Third Year.~No.-29-r\y
Grand Forks, B. G, Friday, February 12,1904
TWICE-A-WEEK
Storey"   Arrested
Forgot His New Alias When Accosted
by a Spokane Policeman
sensible person, and settled in Giand
Forks in the first ylace, he would
never have strayed from his own fireside.
Ecv. J. F. Betts will occupy tie
pulpit in the Methodist church next
Sunday both morning and evening.
The Man Accused of Robbing the Dominion Express Company Says He Will Come Back to This City
Without Requisition Papers.
H. N. Storey, recently employed
as' night operator at the C. P. a station in this city, and who is accused
having stolen seven suit* of clothes
and several boxes of cigars from the
Dominion Express company itl this
city, wasalrested in Spokane Wednesday afternoon by Officer Li'ster
under rather peculiar circumstances.
For two weeks the Spokane police
had been on the lookout, for Storey.
The first notice from the Grand
Forks police did not give a complete
description, but the other day a letter
was sent out describing the fugitive
more minutely. Officer Lister, saw
.Storey walking, towards the police
court. The policeman waited until
his man was inside the courtroom,
and then stepped up to him and
said: "Beg pardon, but isn't your
name Jones?" "No, my name is
Storey," came the quick reply.
"Well, you are the man I'm looking for. Come on." At the police
station Storey said he had been living for two weeks at the Occidental
hotel under the name of Smith. In
the confusion resulting from being
addressed by an officer he forgot his
alias and blurted out his right. He
says he will return without requisition papers, and word to that effect
has been receiyed by the police in
this city.
MINING NOTES
' The Cariboo mine in Cainp McKinney is likely to remain closed indefinitely. At the annual meeting
recently held in Toronto, a dividend
of 4 per cent was ordered paid, leaving but 85000 in the treasury, and
it was decided to not open the
mine. Some time ago the Cariboo
was closed and pumps taken out, thc
local management announcing that
there was no further ore in sight.
Shareholders In the company were
opposed to this action, believing
that some of the money in the treasury should be used in development
work, as it was confidently believed
thut further ore bodies could b ■
1 opened up. It was hoped that this
view would prevail at the annual
meeting, but evidently tho majority
of shareholders didn't believe in expending any money on development
work.

A carload of oro will bo hauled
from the Carmi, a promising West
Fork property, to Midway for ship-
incut to the local smelters.

Harry H. Shallcnberger, manager
of tho Chicago & llritish Columbi i
Mining company, announces that he
has awarded the contract for sink
ing the shaft on the Don Pedro
claim an additional 100 feet.' The
contractors are A. J. Morrison, Wm.
Leonard1, Ed. Sullivan, Murdock
McLepd and A. Inglis, and they
have already commenced work,
There were ten tenders. For some
time Mr. Shallenborger has had a
small force of men sinking on the
Don Pedro, one, of tl.e high grade
Lake groups owned by his company,
with gratifying result*!. Tho shaft
had reached a depth of 39 feet when
the contractors took hold, good ore
having been encountered#all the way
down. It is likely that when the
present contract is completed, giving
a depth of 139 feet, another contract
for crosscutting and drifting will be
let, as the company intends to keep
up the development work.
Local theatre-goers were not disappointed in their expectations of
enjoying an evening of refined
comedy by attending the worldwide success, "What Happened to
Jones," which was presented at the
Biden opera house last Wednesday
evening by Milliard Reid and a
company of capable artistes. The
company is under the man
agement of C. P. Wall 6-, of the
Winnipeg and allied theatres—and
Mr. Walker never sends out any
thing in the theatrical line that borders on mediocrity. From the time
the curtain was rung up on the 'first
act until it was lowered on the final
scene, tho audience were in peals of
laughter. Each succeeding act ap
peared to be more amusing than thi
preceding one. It was evening's en
joyment that was far ahead of any
physical culture exercise, as every
muscle of the body was brought into
aotivc play by tho incessant tits r.f
laughter—in fact, u number laughed
until their sides ached. Mr. Reid is
a rising comedian, and support did
excellent work. The Beating capacity
ofthe house proved to bo insufficient, and extra chairs had to be secured. Tho same company will return on the Ut of March, and another of Mr. Broadhuret'8 comedies
—"Why Smith Left Home"—will
be presented. It is just as funny "s
"Why Happened to Jones."
J. W. Jones, the furniture dea'er,
has purchased the city team and
harness for $375, thereby ending
the long drawn out controversy on
the subject.
Aurthur H. Lauder, of Eholt, the
owner of the Shamrock III and Reliance claims, recently bonded to
the Granby company, is a visitor in
the city.
The Proposition to Establish a Mineral Exhibit Room Meets
With Favor—Government  Aid  Asked  for
Clearing the North Fork.
Dr. J. A. Armstrong, Dominion
veterinary surgeon, spent several
days in the city this week.
A local tailor reports finding a
queer contrivance in the pockets of
a coat sent him to be cleaned by one
of his patrons. Up to the present
he has been unable to determine
whether it is an infernal machine or
a life preserver. Mr. Massie will
place the curiosity on exhibition in
his show windows next week.
W. j. Gaunce, of Greenwood, arrived in the city yesterday and is a
guest at the Yale.
The Granby hotel, which was recently sold by sheriffs sale to satisfy
a mortgage held by the Colonial
Loan and Investment company, and
purchased by John Temple, '.as undergone a complete remodeling, and
the whole interior is now fitted up
in first-class stylej The house will
undoubtedly be liberally patronized
by the traveling public
Frank Hngan, a Swede who has
been in.the city for a year or more,
and who has been a charge on the
city for the past thrie wo:ks, was
examined by thc doctors this week
and declared to be mentally unbalanced. He was sent to tbe New
Westminster asylum yesterday in
charge of Chief McMillan.
The sleighing party given by the
Ladies' Aid of the Presbyterian
church last night to thc ranch of
Hardy Bros, was a very enjoyable
one, and a most pleasant time was
spent. The Hardy brothers proved
hospitable entertainers, nnd after a
social evening, the party returned
home, arriving in the city about
midnight.

mineral exhibit room in this eity,
reportqd that they thoughtthe proposition an excellent one, nnd that they
intended to interview the business
and mining men to ascertain what
assistance would be given to carry
out ihe project. The committee will
make a further report at the next
meeting.
A communication was received
from the Kettle River Lumber company, asking that the board name a
committee to interview Geo. A.
Fraser, our representative for this
riding, asking him to make an endeavor to secure government aid towards . clearing the North Fdrk of
jambs ana) blockades, so that saw-
logs can be floated down the stream,
The lumber company has Bpent
nearly 81000 on tho work of clearing
the river, and as tho government de'
rives a large revenue from this
source, it would only be an act of
justice if an appropriation should
be made for the purpose named. M.
Burrell and Geo. Clark were appointed to communicato with Mr.
Fraser on the subject

NOTICE
The legislnturcd was prorogued
on Wednesday last, after a session
lasting two months and a half, during which 'time a vast amount of
legislation was rushed through, some
of which is undoubtedly open to severe criticism. The Assessment Act
alone has called forth much hostile
comment, not only from the ranks
of tbe Liberal party, but from all
shndesof politicnl parties (if we except the Socialists), and if allowed
to remain on the statute books will
drive hundreds and thousands of
dollars of capital out of the country.
On the other hand, there is a great
deal of legislation which Premier McBride promised tho people—such,
for instance, as the mines' taxation
measure nnd aid to railways—thnt
ho tailed to bring before the house at
all, thereby breaking faith with the
people of the province.
When Geo. A. Fraser, M. L. A.,
returns to his constiiuency—which,
no dtibt, will be in a few days now—
he will, to use a choice enstern
phrase, "bo up against it." Neither
the Southeast Kootciay eoal licenses
nor the promised aid to the North
Gork road, both of which were strong
factors in electing him, have materialized during. the session just
closed. Had he tnken a stand before supply was ' voted nnd forced
the premier's hand oil these questions, he would at least have showed
the people, who elected him that he
was doing his duty nnd trying to got
their rights. On the contrary, he
stood with the goverment all the
way through, and never brought
these matters up in any shape or
or form before the house.
Life in the British Columbia jails
must be a pleasurable pastime. At
any rate, judging from the number
of fugitives that are willing to return
without requisition papers, wo infer
that confinement in the Grand Forks
lockup is preferable to liberty south
of the international boundary.
If Storey hnd said that his name
was JonesJ it iB quite probable that
nothing would havo happened to
Jones.
DuitiNfl the provincial elections
The Sun repeatedly made thc assertion thnt thc Conservative pnrty hail
no railway podcy. You wouldn't
heed our warning.

GREENWOOD GLEANINGS
From, the. Times.
Geo. F. Dougherty, financial secretary of the Gjeenwood Miners'
union and secretary of District
Union left last week for parts unknown. An examination of thc
books of tho Greenwood union revealed a considerable shortage. It is
not yet known how the books of the
district union stand. Mr. Dougherty was secretary of the Greenwood union for some time. He was
also president of the district association nt the time of the Fernie strike
and enme into considerable prominence in connection with the settlement of that difficulty. It is understood he was gambling pretty heavily recentl.,, and that this is responsible foi' the shortage.
There is nothing new to report in
counectioli with the proposed amalgamation of the Dominion Copper
company and the Montreal & Boston com pany.
The attendance at thc Greenwood
public school is now about 100. It
is expe< ted that an additional toucher will have to bo secured nt an
early dnte.

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

twentieth century business man. That we have

A radical change from old methods and prices has hecn made hy
thc Toronto Daily News. The eye's
of the hew'snvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have heen made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
helief in the future success of The
News could lead thc publishers to
mnke such a reduction in price.
Hut just its the dollar magazine has
taken hold 6f Hie people, so, we venture lo predict, The News will secure a vast ami ever-increasing circulation, haseil not only on the popular price, at which it is sold, hut
mainly upon Hie intrinsic merits of

Rhort at the end ofHhe races. He doesn't mind, however, if he hiTs hod lots o.
fun, and he goes to work with the lnii'1*
able aim of saving something for the
next races. Card gambling is less healthy.
The player works at night in a room
which becomes close and stuffy, and
generally smokes and drinks too much.
Neither of these forms of gambling is
considered correct.; neither meets with
the approval of the clergy.
Stock gambling is re .illy the only form
that is eminently respectable. , Here tht-
doctor can work shoulder to shouldei
with the preapher, the elder, the church
warden, the class-lendrr, the widow ana
orphan, or the fellow who has the widow's and orphan's money. We understand that the preacher is more ei-ienti
fin in his methods than thc innocent doe
tor, and becomes therefore the shrewdci
speculator; he knows more about selling
short. We learn from exports that \v
