Issued Twice a Week
V. V. & E. Remove Their Men
From Last Scene of
Arrested Men on Both Sides
Discharged---What Will Be
the Next Move
Midway was the scene last week
of one of the worst wars between
rival railways over construction in
the history of the province. The
light came to a sudden end on Sun-
' day by the withdrawal of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern forces,
who for the past week have been endeavoring to hold a piece of right of
way about six miles west of the town
from the interference of theCanadian
A short time ago theCanadian
Pacific stopped the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern from working on a
piece of ground claimed to be their
property, a short distance from the
place which was the scene of so
much excitement the previous week
The matter was brought before the
courts and a decision given in favor
of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern. Thus heaten the Canadian Pacific took up the fight in another
place. They ordered the Vancouver,
Victoria & Eastern to stop work on
a new block claimed by them. Thc
latter road paid no attention to their
request, and trouble started at once.
Tho Canadian Pacific 'engaged a
number alt men to tear up the small
track used for running dump cars
over. This the employees promptly
set about to do, but were met in
open battle by the men of the other
roiid. Not much headway was
gained by the Cundian Pacific owing
ta the superior numbers of their,
rivals. Then both skies began increasing their forcers. The Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern sent for
all their men that were scattered
over about four miles of construction. The Canadian Pacific hired
all the men they could, until all told
there were in the neighborhood of
700 on the ground. Tents were
pitched and the scene resembled a
small military encampment. Teams
were kept busy from Midway hauling supplies and men. The Vancouver, Victoria & 'Pastern took out
a wagon load of barbed wire to defend the right of way. The Canadian
Pacific bought up all thc wire cutters
available. Everything looked as if
a pitched battle would take place at
any time.
On Saturday Sheriff Wentworth
F. Wood, of Kamloops, arrived with
a formidable lot of legal documents, expecting to seize the right of
way and hand it over to the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern. His
powers were examined, and it was
found they did **i apply to then
land at present under dispute, but
to that awarded the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern by tho courts; and,
again, that he was out of his jurisdiction, as anything of this kind
Would have to be done by Sheriff
Kerman of Grand Forks. It was expected something interesting would
take place at any time, as apparently both sides were determined to
carry their point, but Sunday ufter-
noon the Vancouver, Victoria &
Eastern forces were, for some reason
not understood by the public, withdrawn, and the war for the time be
ing was over..
The Canadian Pacific men are still
holding the ground -and waiting, it
is supposed, for some new action to
be tnken by the Vancouver, Victoria
ct Eastern. Where the matter will
end is difficult bo predict, but the
near future should offer sonic solution to the problem.
Several of the head men on both
sides were arrested and came up
Monday morning for trial, but an
amicable settle was arranged whereby prosecution was stopped on both

Only   8000   Tons   Now  in
Stock in England and
A certain amount of nervousness
has found expression lately with regard to thc possible overproduction
of copper, says the London Financier. Under these circumstances a
communication just received from a
gentleman of considerable authority
on the Metal exchange is interesting.
He speaks us follows: "Consumption in Europe hu-f never been so
good as now, and stocks were never
so low. The continued decline in
our supplies is getting alarming.
There arc now only HU00 tons
in stocks in England \ and
France, of which 6000 tons are in
bar copper (standard) in England.
Out of this over 8000 tons are already sold to consumers, leaving
barely 8000 tuns as counters for the
world's copper market, and most of
this will disappear into furnaces during the next three months. Our
market is considerably oversold, as
shown by the largo backwardation.
We are very bullish."
A "Wheezy" Chest
Means your trouble is deep seated.
To delay is dangerous. All the inllum-
ination will lie drawn out in one day
by applying Nerviline. It penetrates
through the pores of the skin, relieves
inflammation and thus prevents "serious consequences. For sore throat,
weak chest and tendency to colds, no
prescription is better than Poison's
Nerviline. For nearly fifty years it
has been Canatju's greas household
remedy. Twenty-five cents buys a
large bottle.   Sold by all dealers.
Nearly all the prominent local Conservatives met Premier McBride and
Hun. R. F. Green at the Yale last
Friday night at the Yule parlors.
Speeches were made by E. Miller, E.
Spraggett and M. Burrell. The
ministers in their brief remarks dwelt
principally on the Fourth street bridge
matter. An attempt was also made
at the mollification of the Grand Forks
coal barons. Superintendent Hodges,
of the Granby smelter, also spoke,
saying that all the company's dealings
with the preseut government had been
most satisfactory, The Granby company, he said, pays an anunal taxation to the provincial government of
$35,000 from various sources. The
visitors left for Phoenix by private
conveyance Saturday morning.

between Grand Forks and Gilpin,
in this city next week. There
is still another month's work jo be
done before thc company's substation ,in Phoenix can - be completed. An employee of thc CO n-
pany made the assertion that work
on the foundation for khesuli-station
in this oily would be commenced
withiii a few days.

Alexander Stewart, resident engi-
leer of the Great Northern at Seattle, may be given jurisdiction over
the western half of the Great North-
rn's line and entrusted with much
of the new work in the west that the
Great Northern either has under
way or in contemplation. If the
change is made Mr. Stewart will have
charge of the construction of the
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastorn. That
work has necessitated a visit to the
coast at least once a month on the
part of Chief Engineer Hogeland,
and as the Great Northern is putting
the road through to beat the Canadian Pacific into the rich new country, the constant attention of a high
engineering authority is dee-ned
necessary. Mr. Stewart is the most
available man in the Great Northern
service, and is particularly well
qualified for the work.

With a Slight Reduction in
Wages in Some Instances
Superintendent Hodges and the
oommittee from (Irand Forks Federal Labor Union last Saturday, after
negotiations pending a week, arrived
at an understanding whereby the
eight-hour day is to be enforced in
the Granby smelter. The now arrangement will become effective on
or about the ISth inst. Common
laborers, who now receive $.'1.00 for
twelve hours' work, are cut to $150
under the eight-hour scale, while
fiirnnceiiien and other experienced
men are only reduced from 8-1.00 to
83.7o. The mechanics and carpenters, who now work ten bonis, are
bill slightly affected by the new
scale, the only difference being that
on Saturday^ their workday will
hereafter end at -I p.m.
The Granby management claims
that ho eight lio r ill y will increase

An Amurican Disease
Some doctors go so far as to say
tlmt indigestion is the national disease
of America. There is but one national remedy for indigestion, and that
remedy is Dr. Hamilton's Pills, which
accelerate the action of the gastric
glands and give tone to '.the digestive
organs. They .strengthen the kidneys
and liver,clcanse and purify the blood,
and thus add general tune to every
organ of the body. Flesh and strength
are fust restored and the patient can
eat and digest nny food lie pteuses.
Test Dr. Hamilton's Pills yourself—

Wants City to Stand Half the
Cost of a New Bridge at
Fourth Street
As foreshadowed in the last issue
of The Sun, Mayor Hammar succeeding in getting Hon. R. F. Green, commissioner of lands and worki, down to
the First street bridge. Mr. Green
was forced to admit that the structure was a disgrace to the province,
as well us the city.
The mayor ascertained the views of
tho aldermen as to what the city was
prepared to do towards the construction of a new bridge at Fourth street,
and then had a long and strenuous
private interview with the commissioner at his roonis at the Yale. Mr.
Hammar proposed that if the government would construct a 90-foot Howe
truss bridge, without centre pier, at
Fourth street, the city would build
the approach on this side the river,
and he thought it altogether likely
that the residents of the Ruckle addition would do the same on the other
side the river.
Mr. Green thought this would be
too expensive a bridge, and claimed
it would be cheaper to erect a school
house across the river; but ns it would
ftquire special legislation to divide the
dist.iict, he did not like that idea. He
finally promised that the government
would pay half, or better, thc cost of
the new bridge, if the city would contribute the balance, and snid he would
send a com] etcnt engineer here to
make an estimate of the cost of the
structure us soon as he got back tii
the coast.
The commissioner .,alsii promised
that immediate steps would be taken
to open the Nortli Fork wftgon road
tlnougli the Wiseman property. The
reason why the $1000 grant had uot
been paid would also be investigated.
The farewell dance tendered Gordon T. Campbell, i of thc Eastern
Townships hanks, in Alberta hall
last Monday night, wns a pleasant
affair. Mr. Campbell has been
transferred to the Vancouver branch,
and will leave for thnl city this
week. He has been a resident of
Grand Forks for about three years,
and the good wishes of his numerous frionds here will go with him lo
his new homo.   *•
The Tonic of Health
Must be more than a stimulant—
must be a food us well. There is one
medicine that is Initli a fund nnd a
tonic—it aids digestion, promotes assimilation, converts food into nutriment that builds up nerves, biood,
brain and bone. That tunic is Ferrozone, which contains exactly what a
run-down system needs. Ferrozone
supplies oxygen to purify Ihe blood,
phosphorous to develop the bruin, Iron
to harden the muscles. No wonder it
makes such vigorous men and women.
You'll eat, sleep, think uml feel belter

A Good Nn tn red Wife.
An English rustic whose wife wat
! blessed with a remarkably even tem-
! per went over the way to a neighbor
one evening and said:
! "Neighbor, I just should like to see
i my wife cross for once. I've tried all
I know, and I can't make her cross no
: way."
"You can't make your wife cross?"
said his neighbor. "I wish I could make
mine anything else. But you just do
what I tell you, and If that won't
net nothing will. You bring her in
some night a lot of the crookodost
; sticks for the fire you can get—thorn as
won't lie in no form—and see how she
: makes out then."
The pieces of wood were accordingly
brought in, as awkward and crooked
! and contrary as could be found.   Tho
man went away early to work and at
I noon returned to see the result of his
'. experiment
lie was greeted with a smiting face
and the gentle request:
I    "Tom, do bring me in some more of
I those crooked slick;! if you can  find
! them.   They do Just tit around the kettle so nicely!"

The amicable Battlement (if thi'
eight-hour controversy between the
the Granby smelter management
ami its employees ia another proof
that cool deliberation and modern
tion are the best'weagons with which
to win labor battles. The smelter
employees have gained a decided
victory without having to resort to
a long, bitter nnd costly strike, and
the union committee that carried
on the negotiations with ihe smelter
ollieials is deserving of a great deal
' of credit, especially as at times it
had to buffet the hot-heads in its
own organization. The Granby
people have shown their usual liberality in dealing with its men,
and the entente cordiale which has
always existed between employer
and employee in that institution is
likely to be  prolonged  indefinitely.
. It is scarcely time yet for municipal politics to warm up, still a few
names have already been mentioned
for the office of chief magistrate of
the city. ' Aid. Hutton, it is said, is
an avowed candidate, and it is also
reported that, under certain conditions, the pn sent incumbent of the
office, Mayor Hammar, will consent
to enter the race. The list will undoubtedly grow as nomination day
draws nearer.

Agamemnon, It lins been claimed, Is

epic telling of his achievements at
Troy \ylll be loutb to believe it. Let us
keep inviolate our belief in the heroes!
You may see today Agamemnon's
tomb ot Mycenae, Greece—Myeenne, to
which he. as king, returned triumphant
from the conquest of Ilium, bringing
witli him, as .Hschylus tells tn the
greatest of Greek tragedies, the, fair
Cassandra. Agamemnon did not die of
old age, covered with honors, for that
was not the popular end of heroes in
those strenuous days. Homer says he
was slain by .Eglsthus, lover of his
queen wife, .-Esehylus tells that Queen
Clytemnestra killed both Agamemnon
and Cassandra.

Diamond Ink.
So colled diamond ink for writing on
glass is a compound ot fluoric acfd and
barium. Tbe latter has no effect, it

should be allowed to remain fifteen
minutes, when the barium will brush
off, leaving the design on the glass.

Itself in forms not unlike kiteflying and
parachuting. Tbe "parachuting animals" are mammals—flying squirrels of
various kinds—birds (the pigeon), reptiles, flying fishes. Among the "kite-

Harder In the Air,
In the neighborhood of Buenos
Ayres, in South America, there is n
north wind which sweeps over plains
covered with marshes and becomes
overeliargiM with moisture. The effects produced In the human body are
in general lassitude and relaxation.
The pores of the skin are opened, inducing great liability to colds, sore
throat and all consequences of check
of perspiration. The damp wind of
La Plata seems to affect the temper
and disposition of the Inhabitants. The
irritability and ill humor it excites in
them amount to little less than a temporary derangement of their faculties.
It is a common thing for men among
the better classes to shut themselves
up In their houses during its continuation and lay aside nil business till it
has passed, while among the lower
classes it is always remarked that
cases of quarreling and bloodshed are
more frequent during the north winds
thnn at nny other time. Even murderers are said to lay to It the blame
ot their foul deeds. No sooner, however, does the southwest wind, blowing from the diy and snowy summits
of the Andes, set tn than health and
comfort and peace are restored.
It takes a lot of culture in savagery
to make one really enjoy a football
(-lasses In Turkey.
Tbe people of Turkey are classified
«s three classes—the wealthy, the people of ordinary means and the poor.
The wages which the poor are paid
range from 20 to 25 cents 11 day. Some
of the girls wbo work in thc silk manufactories are paid ns low as 5 and 7
cents for a hard day's work. The majority of the inhabitants of Turkey,
by the way, are employed In tho manufacture of silk. Farming Is carried on
Tory little, which Is due to the small
profits which it brings and to the
scarcity of machinery. There are many
wealthy people In Turkey, some of
whom are Bold to be worth $2,000,00*
aud they spend freely.
