bumper of one of the heavy ore cars,
and the knee bone was crushed to a
jelly and the limb almost severed.
He was brought out on the motor
and at once taken to the hospital,
where it was found necessary to take
off the limb. Rundquist is a single
man of about 25 years of age, and
had been employed at the Granby
mines for something like a year.
A large and enthusiastic meeting
of Grand Forks Lodge No. 30,
Knights of Pythias, was held in
Oddfellows' hall last Tuesday evening. Many visitors from Danville
and Republic were present, including H. I. Gill, grand chancellor of
the state of Washington. The event
of the evening was the exemplification of the third rank and conferring
rank of knight upon two new members. The work, which was done
entirely by the local team, left nothing to be desired. At the close of the
ceremonies supper was ssrved in the
banquet ball, to which those present, including the ladies of the
Rathbone Sisters—altogether about,
sixty—sat down. After doing ample justice to the good things provided, the company adjoiuned to
the lodge-room, were a most enjoyable social time was spent. Grand
Chancellor Gill entertained the gathering with an interesting and instructive address upon the order in
general and the Rathbone Sisters.
Numerous musical selections were
rendered, Mrs. Ernest Miller presiding at the piano. Mr. James Cowie
contributed some mnch appreciated
violin solos. Taken all in all, the
meeting was one of the most successful ever held in the city. The
Grand Forks lodge is to be congratulated on the rapid strides it is making; its financial condition is excellent, and its members are wideawake and progressive.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
March came in like a lamb; but it
now appears to be making elaborate
preparations to don the lion's garb
in which to make its traditional
exit.
The Grand Forks school boy is
nothing if not up-to-date. The
other a teacher in our public school
asked one what the city of Victoria
was noted for, and he answered:
"For its daily government caucuses."
Grand Forks people who have observed the beautiful constellation in
the western sky during the evenings
of the present week have ssen Venus
at her greatest brilliancy for this
calendar year. As the evening star
she ably lived up to her divine
namesake in point of beauty. Venus
is nearer the size of the earth than
any other known planet. Her diameter is 7700 miles, and her volume
is about 92 per cent that of the
earth. In the telescope she presents many phases similar to our
moon, varying from a mere sickle of
light to a complete circle.
In committee last Wednesday the
provincial legislature adopted a rule
making taxation on wild lands 4 per
cent on the assessed value, instead
of 5 per cent, as at present.

N. McLellan has grown so corpulent since he retired from business
thatjhc has.found itnecessary to build
a new stone foundation under his
residence. This feat has reduced
his flesh somewhat, and he does not
apprehend that the house will sink
too far into the ground during the
next six months.
Last Tuesday morning a serious
accident occurred at the Granby
mines in Phoenix, the result of
which was the losing of a leg by
John Rundquist, who is now lying
at the Phoenix hospital, after the
operation. Rundquist was a mucker
boss at the mine, and was assisting
in replaeing an ore car on the track
in the No. 2 tunnel of the property.
In some way his leg was caught between the  electric motor and [the

PROVINCE HOTEL LICENSE CANCELLED
A Controversy Between Licensee and
and Property Owner the Cause.
The board of licensing commissioners held a meeting in the city
hall Wednesday afternoon, and revoked the license held by Hank
Henderson for the Province hotel.
The license was made out. in Mr.
Henderson's, but when he retired
from the business, the owner of the
property, Dr. Averill, refused to pay
the price he asked for it, and
the house has been doing business on a permit for some. Both
sides were represented by counsel.
According to the present hotel and
liquor by-law, when a licence lapses
it cannot be re-issued.
At the Baptist church, Sunday,
Evangelist McDermid will preach
both morning and evening, at 11
and 7:.30 o'clock. You will be made
welcome at these services.
Dr. Averill returned to the city
this week from an extended trip
through Montana.
In the case of Lequime et al. vs,
R. A. Brown, which was heard at
a sitting of the supreme court in this
city last October, Chief Justice Hunter haB just handed down his de
cision, a copy of which arrived here
this week. The action arose out of
a claim which Lequime & Powers
had against Brown for money alleged
to have been overpaid on a log con
tract. The chief justice holds that
the defendant is indebted to the
plaintiffs in at least the sum of
84,264.07, and the plaintiffs are
therefore given judgment for this
amount, with costs. Mr. Brown an
nounces his intention of appealing
the case.
The "grandmother's tea" party,
given by the Ladies of the Maccabees at the Taylor house Wednesday afternoon and evening, was a
gratifying success, the society realizing $22 for the benefit of the young
ladies of the guard. Besides serving
tea and cake, a number of musical
selection were also rendered, and
card parties wero not lacking. The
young waitresses make a futile attempt to disguise themselves as
grandmothers. Even a novice could
tell that they were not old and decrepit.
a well-known citizen and property-
owner of the Boundary country, has
been pronounced insane, after a
medical examination in the city jail,
and will be sent to New Westminster asylum. It will be remembered
that, as published in The World at
the time, Mr. Maginnis suddenly left
this city one afternoon last w„eek
and was found wandering about
Blaine, on the boundary line, next
morning. He showed symptoms of
mental aberration and was brought
back to Vancouver. He had come
here from Phoenix on business. At
first it was hoped that the unfortunate man's affliction would soon
yield to medical treatment, but the
derangement has continued, and
there was nothing for it but to commit him to the provincial asylum.
During the first part of the week
there were reports circulated concerning Great Northern surveyors being
up into the North Fork country and
also west of Midway. After having
camped on the trail of these rumors
for three days, The Sun discovered
the source of them to have been
based on the fact that two or three
surveyors we're sent from the Great
Northern engineer's office to the
Granby smelter to measure up some
old work.
It has been common talk on the
streets during the past week that
the Bonnington Falls Power company is about to build a high-tension
power line into the Boundary country. A Granby official states that
before any steps are taken in this di
rection, the matter will have to
come before the board of directors
ot the Granby company for consideration.

The new Bteed of our "mounted

was attempting to cross the international boundary line prior to paying
a $32 board bill. But he came back,
and the landlord got his money.

is now visiting at the Queens. Mr.
Cusson states that the most cele

HAROLD NELSON
The Popular Actor Will Be Seen In
This City on the 31st Inst.
The Aholarly actor, Harold Nelson, has in the past two seasons won
laurels in "Quo Vadi•<," "Faust,"
"Paul Kauvar," and other high-
grade dramatic performances, but
there are many of his admirers who
still insist that he has never appeared to so great advantage as in "Richelieu." His portrayal of the famous
cardinal left an impress on many
thoughtful minds, and there will be
pleasure conveyed by the announcement that Mr. Nelson has revived
Bulwcr Lytton's classic. This revival, which in respect to costuming
and scenery, is made on an elaborate scale, will be seen here on Friday,
March 31st. Mr. C. P. Walker, Mr.
Nelson's enterprising manager, who
has assisted his star in, giving thc
West a higher standard of performances, promises that tbis "Richcl-
ieu" production will be of metropolitan sumptuousness. The supporting company is a particularly
strong one, and a performance of
exceptional worth may beanticipnted.
A Force of Workmen Commem
velopment Work on That
erty Last Wednesday.
Carload of Tools and Provisions
celved From Hunter-Kendrlck's
Greenwood Store.
Active development work on the
the Seattle mine, located ten miles
north of this city on the North Fork,
was started last Wednesday morning, when a^ force of men was put td
work by W. T. Hunter and Horace
Pemberton, who bonded the property last week. It is the intention of Messrs. Hunter and Pemberton to drive the existing tunnel,
now in a distance of 60 feet, an additional 100 feet; and it is expected
that this tunnel will encounter some
large ore bodies, as rich copper ore
can be found at almost any place on
the surface of the claim. A carload of supplies, consisting of tools,
ore care and provisions, arri*d at
the mine from Hunter-Kendrick's
Greenwood store on tbe same day
that work was commenced.
Some fine looking ore was brought
down from the Coro-Canadian a
couple of days ago, and is now on
exhibition at Rainey's cigar store.
The shaft on the property is now
down about sixty-five feet, and the
ledge is from eight to eleven inches
wide. The last assay, taken about
a week ago, gave values of *?18 per
ton. The Coro-Canadian is located
in the Greenwood high-grade belt,
and is being worked by a Grand
Forks syndicate.
The work of extending the tunnel
on the Strathmore mine, Greenwood camp, has been commenced.)
Fred Knight, of this city, has secured a working bond on the Fremont mineral claim, adjoining the
Straihniore mine, in the Greenwood
high-grade belt.

RAILWAY POLICY
Government to Guarantee Principal
and Interest on Construction of
North Fork Road.
If we hud to live our lives over
again, most of us would probably
make more mistakes even than we
have so far made.
Misrepresenting a rival is not fair
competition; besides, you always
take dangerous chances of running
against the man who knows you are
telling a falsehood.
The opinion is rapidly gaining
strength in this section that British
Columbia might as well be without
a government as to retain McBride
and his colleagues in office.
Some people think that a paper is
all right as long as it pats them on
the back, or conveniently winks at
their pecadilloes, but if it treads on
their corns, they squeal; and yet half
the privileges we enjoy in this world
today are due to the courage and
fidelity of the press in attacking evil
and wrong wherever found.
The suggestion made to the management of the Dominion fair, that
the time would be opportune for a
convention of British Columbia
newspaper men, when the organization of a Provincial Press association might be taken into consideration, appears to have been favorably
received by the editors of the province. The fair management is willing to encourage the promotion of
this project by providing special entertainment and accommodation on
the grounds for the press gang.
If the proposition is carried out, The
Sun man will endeavor to be present.
A model mode of conveyance to
and from the exhibition grounds for
the governor-general, who has been
invited by the corporation of New
Westminster to open thc Dominion
fair on September 17, has just been
arranged. The identical carriage in
which Lord Dufferin rode from Yale
to Savannas Ferry on that memorable trip in 1876", when the virginity
of the district had only been
disturbed by the fur trader,
gold hunter and sapper, will,
with six British Columbia thoroughbreds attached, be at the disposal of his excellency, Lord Grey.
This carriage was built to order in
San Francisco and brought to thc
Fraser valley for the special convenience of Lord Dufferin. It wns
subsequently used by thc Mniquis
of Lome. After completing viceregal service, it was used by the
British Columbin Express company
as a sjnge coach on the Cariboo trail,
and in its dny passed through many
thrilling nnd romantic incidents.
For some years post it hns been out
of commission, but hns been preserved intact, and the manager of
the historic express company has
graciously promised to forward it in
good condition to the manager of the
Dominion fair at New Westminster.
The markets of the world are open
tojthe buyer who has cash to put up.
This, coupled with years of experience, enables us to give you the
very best valuo for your money.
Call and be convinced. Donaldsonls.
Columbia & Western to Receive a
Bonus of $5000 Per Mile From
Midway to Spence's.
A special to The Nelson Tribune
says that the government did not
formulate a railway policy at the
caucus held early in the week, as
was expected; but it is generally understood; now that the Grand Trunk
has acquired the Kitimat charter,
that the railway policy of the government will be:
1. A cash bonus of $5000 a mile
to the Columbia & Western from
Midway to Spence's Bridge.
ii. The guarantee of principal and
interest on constructio.i of a road
from Grahd Forks up the North Fork
of Kettle river for a distance of fifty
miles; the province taking a first
mortgage on the road.
3. Exemption from taxation for
fifteen years on all mileage built by
the Great Northern between Midway
nnd the Fraser river.
The Grand Trunk Pacific has purchased the Kitimat road charter for
$60,000 cash, and ns the charter
carries a cash subsidy of $5000 a
mile from the province, the road
will be built. However, the Grand
Trunk will make an effort to exchange the $5,000 a mile cash subsidy for a land grant of 15,000 acres
a mile,
TlieSunsenta telegram to Geo.
A. Fraser, M.L.A., this morning,
asking for a confirmation or denial
of this dispatch, and late this afternoon the following reply was received:
"Victoria, March 24.—The government railway policy has not yet
been made public. I hope the report published in The Tribune is
true."
The Drummer.
The drummer with his heavy grips
From town to town goes gilding,
And on his long and weary trips
He does a lot of riding.
He slips about in manner tireless:
Sometimes it almost seems by wireless
He opens up his sample case
And gives his fancy goods an airing.
And when an order doesn't place
You hear some late, artistic swearing.
But, oh, he's genial, blithe and sunny
When things come round like easy money.
While waiting for the local freight
He tells the natives tales of travel    '
And gives to those who also wait
The newest problems to unravel,
And any time he's not on duty
He's flirting with the village beauty.
The drummer is a pleasant lad,
With mirth his youthful spirits bubMe,
And though his luck Is to the bad
He lightly casts aside all trouble,
And anywhere you chance to strike him,
Somehow you cannot help but like htm.

Mr. Douglass, proprietor of the
Pacific hotel in the early days, and
weli known by all the old-timers of
Grand Forks, died in Phoenix this
week, and was buried in that city
yesterday. Mr. N. D. Mcintosh
went up to that place to attend the
funeral.

reports, and does not know where all

he has not taken a single contract

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. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining cur service, and also
personally conducted excursion curs,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing thi'continent cun be found
than is provided by these excursions.

nnd, Ore.

VICTORIA NEWS. ITEMS.       I
The member for Nelspn is not sau-
guine over getting an appropriation I
for the Nelson fair. The government |
is committed to granting the Westminster fair every dollar available I
this year,  and it is not likely any]
giant will be made Nelson.    Hon.
R. F. Green has pledged hiwself to I
stand for a grant for Nelson, but it
will be his vote against five in the |
executive, and it is not likely the estimates will lie changed in caucus.
Vice-President and General Manager Morse of the Grand Trunk  Pacific railway left Vancouver for Mont- j
real on Friday.   He says that owing I
to the refusal ot the British Coluni- |
bin government to accede to to the
company:s demands, construction of I
the line in this Province will not be |
started until the company sees fit.
Morse pointed out that the Dominion agreement did not require con-I
struction to be started on this end of
the line,  the date being  optional
with the company.   He declined to
state what the company's demands
were beyond that it had requested a||
land grant.
The daily caucuses on railway leg
islation continue, and yet without
accomplishment. The government
appears committed to a solely Canadian Pacific program, or a fruiless
year in Provincial development by
railway construction. Yet there are
a few among the government supporters, reputedly Mncgowan, Ellison, GifTord and SI'a ford among
them, who insist upon the Coist-
Kootenay loid being put in motion,
and are disposed to act ugly at the j
indifference of the government to'the
pi essing necessity for thc avenue of]
communication and development.

WITH CRICK IN THE BACK
You are up against a whole lot of
trouble unless you have a strong
remedy like Nerviline to settle pain
and dislodge stiffness from the muscles
and joints. Just rub Nerviline on the
painful spot—not much rubbing because Nerviline has more power than
oidinary remedies. You won't suffer
long after Nerviline is applied, for it
relieves almost instantly. Mr. Phillip
Adams of Oakland says, "If I hadn't
used Nerviline I guess my back would
be stiff yet. A few applications of
Nerviline took out all the soreness
and stiffness. I can recommend Nerviline for any muscular pain, and also
for rheumatism." Price 25c. H.E.
