Fourth Year-No. 79
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, August 1, 1905
Issued Twice a Week
Construction Work Was Commenced at Midway Last
Friday
Will Open Up a Rich Mineral
and Agricultural Section
of Country
The charter of the Midway & Vernon railway expired at 12 o'clock last
Friday night, but a new lease of life
waa given it by grading operations
being started at the Midway end Friday afternoon by McLean Brothers,
the contractors. There has been considerable trouble in financing the road
by the holders of the charter—mostly
Greenwood men—owing to the opposition of one of the large railway corporations which wanted the charter
but would not build in thenearfuture.
The Greenwood holders have at last
succeeded, however and the road is
now assured.
The charter for the Midway b Vernon railway was granted five years
ago for the construction of a railway
between Vernon, the terminus of the
C.P.U. 'at Vernon at the head of
'Okanagan lake, and Midway, the terminus of the C.P.E. in the Boundary.
From Vernon the proposed road wjjl.
run along tlu eastern side of Okanagan lake, coining through a pass between the head waters of Mission and
Wilkinson creeks, and along the latter to the West Fork near Carmi, and
following the river to Midway.
The road will pass through one of
the richest mining districts of British
Columbia, that of the West Fork of
the Kettle river, where an average assay of less than 9100 is not considered of sufficient value to do assessment
on. The road will not Only be of benefit to the mine owners and prospectars
of the West Fork, but also to the
farmers and fruit growers of .the
Okanagan, giving the latter an excel
lent market for their produce in the
mining camps of the Boundary and
the West Fork.
It will perhaps be a year or even
two before the road is in operation as
far as Beaverdell and Caruii, the center of the rich mining belt, bnt there
is some encouragement to those who
have held,, claims in the district for
eight or ten years in the fact that
grading has been started.
country. This opportunity to ship
exhibition fruit to Spokane free of
charge will enable every fruit growing
section to enter fine exhibits in the
competition for district displays of
green fruits. In this contest $800 in
cash is divided iu premiums. With
fie liberality of the railroads tbese
•xhibits can be made at a much lower
cost than ever before. Every county
or section which raises good fruit
should make an exhibit. Individuals
who have large varieties of fruit also
can compete for these district premiums. If every district or county will
bestir itself and gather together its
best fruits, whether it wins a premium
or not, it will contribute to the finest
fruit exhibit ever seen at the Spokane
fair, and will advertise the fruit and
farming industry of this section
among the eastern people as never before. The railroads certainly have
done a handsome thing this time.
I
Fruit Growers' Opportunity
AU railroads entering fjpokane have
united this year in granting to the
Spokane Interstate fair the'finest con
cessions for the handling of exhibits
of fruits, grain and grasses which they
have ever given. Fruit, grain and
vegetables which are for exhibition
purposes only and are not sold can be
returned at a one-half rate. If the
fruit is spoiled and of no further value
at the close of the exposition the rail
road companies will refund all freight
charges paid thereon. This means
that fruit which is used for exhibition
purpbses only can be shipped free to
the fair. Never before have the railroads been so liberal, They recognize
the present year as an opportune one
for fruit raising communities to show
to eastern people who come to the
Portland fair what fine fruits of all
varieties are grown in this part of the
FicF School Examinations
Last Friday the results of the
teachers' examinations, held throughout the province about a month ago,
were made public in Victoria. They
enibrace three grades, namely, the
senior, intermediate, and junior.
Only a comparatively few candidates went up for the former two,
however, and most of those who
tried are residents of interior towns'
not having the privilege of writing
on the McGill college matriculation
papers. The highest number of
marks obtained by the lenders in
each school are as follows: Victoria,
1081; Vancouver, 1012; Nanaimo,
992; Nelson, 921; Rossland, 918;
New Westminster, 895; Cumberland,
893; Kamloops, 883; Grand Forks,
869; Chilliwack, 853; Vernon, 790.
Appended are the results of those
writing from the Grand Forks high
school for junior grade certificates—
maximum marks 1400:
Jessie A.Stuart  869
Isaac B. Langford  829
Winifred C. Stuart  728
Number of candidates 6, passed 3.
In addition to the foregoing, the
following candidates, who wrote
here, were awarded thifd class certificates:
Miss Margaret Johnson.
Miss Florence B. Johnson.
Miss Violet Schon, of Greenwood.
Large Funeral
The funeral of the late Mrs. Hector Kelly took place on Saturday
afternoon at 3 o'clock, as previously
arranged.
About two hours after Mrs. Kelly's
death on Friday morning, Frank
Fritz started for Gloucester camp
with a team and rig to bring Mr.
Kelly homo. Although a good portion of thc distance is heavy mountain road, and thc last ten miles
merely a foot trail, over which he
rode ono horse, he made the round
trip, a distance of over 100 miles, in
a day and a half, arriving home
with Mr. Kelly at 12 o'clock noon
on Saturday.
The funeral was very largely attended, which showed the high esteem in which the deceased was held,
and no pains were spared by the
relatives and friends to show the
greatest respect to her .memory in
the last said rites.

at the Granby smelter with the improvements and installation of the two
new furnaces and additional machinery, although labor has been
rather scarce at times. The long flue
dust chamber ia now nearly completed, and the new brick smokestack
is upj about 125 feet, leaving but
25 feet yet to be jiuijtf Every effort
is now being made to have everything
ready for connecting about the 10th

Although not yet absolutely certain, it would appear that Kaien
island, about 25 miles south of Port
Simpson, is to be the Pacific terminus of the Grand Trunk Pacific.
The company holds from the government oi British Columbia a grant of
land and the location has been
approved by the government at Ottawa. While it is open to the company to name anothei ferminus before beginning work, yet those in a
position to know say they have little
doubt that Kaien island will be selected finally. The island is for all
practical purposes part of the mainland, and was, in fact, so marked on
the early mafis of the district. The
passage which separates it from the
mainland is narrow and at low
water is dry in places. I can be
easily bridged to connect with the
main line without a break
While the editor of our local contemporary writes scatching editorials—presumably with his right
hand—deprecating mud-slinging in
general, his left hand is engaged in
smearing the eastern politicians with
big chunks of Kettle River valley
black loam. This appears to be a
clear ease of the right hand not
knowing whai the left is doing, and
is therefore merely valuable from a
curio standpoint.
Dr. William Osier hns made the
statement that all colics mean appendicitis nowadays, and are admitted on the surgical side, much to

due to a lobster salad of the night
before. Pain in the stomach nowadays is alwayB appendicitis, and is

The customs revenue still keeps

Another reason why women should
not use feathers and birds for millinery purposes is indicated by the
experience of a lady in Wisconsin.
She was sitting on a log in a. growth
of bushes reading. A hunter saw
her hat, and mistaking it for a part-
r.dge blazed away. The lady still
lives, but hereafter she will use only
flowers and ribbons as decorations
on her headgear.
A Philadelphia paper has made
the interesting discovery that in the
swamp lauds of Missouri and Arkansas the cows that have the ague
will give milk shakes. If it would
investigate, it might add to the fund
of lacteal knowledge the strange fact
that in the Klondike country the
cows give ice cream.
Any man who has been fourii n< s
married and three times divorced,
and is anxious to try it again, must
be playing for a front seat in the
heavenly choir.
Ninety-nine men remain poor
waiting for a fortune to fall in their
hand, where only one is made rich
by the longed-for transmigration of
a dried-up uncle.
An old proverb says, marry your
sons when you will, but your daughters when you can. As a matter of
f ct either proposition is an impossibility.
The article ill a magazine on "how
to keep sane" is about as valuable as
the numerous rules on ''how to
keep cool" *in hot weather.
The Pullman porters of the sleeping cars are forming an association
to better their condition. The travelers hereafter better hide in the
smoker.
A bachelor never figures on marrying a widow, but when a widow
figures on marrying a bachelor its a
sure sign of a wedding.
Wearing Away Your Lungs?
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 sore places, nothing can surpass
Catiurhozone. 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.

PRINTS all the news of thn
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the
only twice-a-week pajier published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
or controlled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a combination of merchants
to be usedasa means of lauding their own wares, to the
detriment of their rivals.
Tiik Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else hits any right to dictate its policy. It is printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. He does not
have te consult half-a-dozen
different parties about what
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads Tiik Sun twice a week. *
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the
Boundary.
