Grand Forks, B. L,
June 9,1905
Issued Twice a Week
The Sun Man Imitates the
American   Newspaper
Reporters
His Grace" Converses Affably
on local and National
Affairs
I
Not to be outdone by the Yankee
reporters and the metropolitan journalists of the mountain region of
British Columbia, The Sun man
boarded the Duke of Sutherland's
special as it slowed down at the C.
P. B. station and rode as far as the
Granby smelter with the distinguished traveler.' After discussing
the proposed extension of the 0. P:R.
west of Midway during the coming
summer with Mr. William Whyte,
his grace was finals-* cornered, and
he talked very affably, until, he was
choked off by the smelter smoke. He
evidently anticipated my first question.
"Oh," he said, "I think Canada
is a very lovely country. British
Columbia, in my opinion, is the gem
province of the Dominion, and the
Kettle River valley appears to be
the garden spot of the provinoe.
Grand Forks, I am informed, is
the railway centre of the province,
and it should become an.important
distributing point for the surrounding territory. l
' 'The United States ? Yes, I have
traveled through it extensively. It
is a very pretty winter resort; but
then, you know, it is running short
of raw material. Canada, I understand, has an abundance of this raw
material. All Bhe needs is the factories to turn this material into the
finished article, and your country
will take first rank among the nations of the earth.
"The newspapers of Canada?
Really, I think they are much more
courteous than those published in
the United States. In Los Angeles
the reporters called me a brick, but
in this country they say I am a
genuine gold brick. Oh, yes, your
paper is well known in England)
where it has a large circulation.. I
read it regularly twice a week, and I
have become quite, familiar with
your citizen j and institutions.
"The V., V. (feE. amendment?
That will surely be passed. I don't
see how the railway committee and
parliament could do otherwise. You
certainly need, all the railways you
can get. And if you obtain them
without subsidies and bonuses, so
much tbe better. I could speak for
hours on this subject—but, you can
see for yourself how closely Mr.
Whyte clings to me.
"I am just dying to inspect the
Granby smelter. I understand it is
the largest reduction works in Canada. Of course, I know pretty well
how it will look from descriptions
published in your paper. But then,
you know, there is nothing like seeing
the real machinery in motion."
Tbe conversation then drifted on
local affairs, and his grace showed
a wonderful familiarity with civic
conditions in Grand Forks, demonstrating that he has been a close
student of The Sun.
"Mayor  Hammar's   announced
fight for a reduction of civic expenses," he said, "appears to me to
be praiseworthy. A city corporation is like a business firm. If it
pays out money lavishly it will
eventually go broke. The mayor's
scheme possesses merit in one respect at least—he has a well defined
plan of how to carry it into effect
I see that Aldermen Brown also professes to favor a curtailment of expenses, but up to the present he
does not appear to have offered any
scheme by means of which this object can be carried out. An alderman should see his way clear to carry
out his views.
"Alderman Henniger's scheme of
boulevards seems to be in an embry-
otic state as yet. However, if his
committee is granted a sufficient appropriation, I think he can be trusted to carry out his plans.
"I am rather anxious to see what
stand the chairman of the water and
light committee will take on the
paramount issue now before the
council. v  ■' t
"Alderman McCallum appears to
be looking after the duties of the
finance committee all right. But
I don't like the intentions of the
cemetery committee to extend the
present burying grounds as far
west as Columbia avenue, I understand some of the property Owners
on that thoroughfare are kicking
against thiB extension. They have
a perfect right to kick. When a
cemetery is brought up to a man's
back door, it looks too much like
an invitation to die. This is a grave
matter, and should be duly considered while it is a live issue."
His grace then started in to give
his views of the autonomy bill. He
thought all country papers should
express themselves clearly on the
subject of separate schools, because
the rural press generally exercise a
powerful influence on federal legislation. Just as the train stopped at
the smelter, he said that the Ottawa
government/ in his opinion, could
be trusted to deal with the matter
intelligently, especially as it had
never yet failed to meet an emergency wisely.
In parting, his grace expressed regret that the time at his disposal did
not permit him of visiting The Sun
fruit orchard, concerning which he
had read so much both in The Sun
and tbe London dailies.

The annual meeting of the Provincial Vintners' association was
called to order by the president, A.
W. Von Rhein, at 10:30 yesterday
morning in the Pantheon club rooms,

executive.
After the minutes of the 1904 session had been adopted, a general expression of opinion was exchanged
by the members, representing nearly every license district in the province.
The election of officers resulted as

has to be done; to elevate and advance the trade to the the highest
possible standard of society, and

coaches. The train proceeded to
the Granby smelter, and the visitors
were piloted through the big reduction works by General Manager
Graves and Superintendent Hodges.

desirous of'inspecting the big smelter, and yesterday he had his wish
fulfilled. He expressed himself as
highly pleased with his visit, and
was greatly impressed by the magnitude of the plant.
Immediately after going through

Accordingto Vice-President Whyte's
state-nent, as published in the Nelson News a few days ago, the C.P.R.
company are not going to be hurried
with railway building weBt of Midway, as that country is not ready for
a railroad yet, and as Jim Hill has
no intention of building a coast to
Kootenay railway through Canadian
territory—"he will not do anything
of the kind." Will some one please
explain, for the benefit of our read
era, why the C.P.R. representatives
representatives at Ottawa are losing
so much sleep (and other things)
trying to prevent the passing of an
amendment to the V., V. & E. charter asked for by the Hill people,
since Hill is not going to invade
their territory? Oh, consistency

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 ihe 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 east-1
era 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 care, I
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-1
feet  dining  car  service, and  also,
personally conducted excursion cars,
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 the continent can be found
than is provided by   these  excursions.
For additional details address J.
D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande
Lines, No. 124 Third Street, Portland, Ore.
"The Hottest Coon in Dixie"
The above attraction carries in all
thirty-four colored performers, including a band and orchestra of fifteen pieces. The military parade
will be one of the largest and most
elaborate attempted by any musical
organization of this nature. Only
artists of note are included, and a
full equipment of electric effects, together with a full line of special
scenery, makes the attraction the
strongest and most complete of any
now traveling. At the Grand Forks
opera house, Friday, June 16.
How to Cure Toothache
Any aching tooth can be relieved
instantly with Nerviline. Fill tl.e
eaviry with batting dipped in Nerviline and rub the gums with Nerviline
also. If the face is swollen and sore
bathe the painful parts with Nerviline
and cover with a flannel. This can't
fail because Nerviline kills the pain
outright and prevents it from returning. Stronger, quiker, more satisfactory than any other liniment, Pol-
son's Nerviline has been the largest
seller for nearly fifty years; try it yourself.    H. E. Woodland, druggist.

KODAKS
Numerous complaints have recently come to this office respecting
the importation of pauper labor
into the country. It is alleged
that if the railway companies need
ten or twenty men, they invariably
send to a Spokane employment
agent for them. The agent collects
a dollar from every man he furnishes
the companies. This is a good thing
for the agent, and he generally takes
advantage of it by shipping three or
four times more men than are required. There are no immigration
inspectors on this side tbe line, and
the men are allowed to enter the
province without hindrance, although the majority of them are
penniless. As there are not enough
jobs to go around, the result is that
vast numbers become stranded. Most
of them are Italians and Hungarians
who have not been naturalized on
the other side of the line, and when
they attempt to recross the boundary
they are stopped by the American
immigration officers.
A real duke has praised the Granby smelter. It is too bad that we
can't induce a few of the crowned
heads of Europe to come over and
add their approval to that of the
duke's.
Those Annoying Blackheads.
External applications will never remove pimples or blackheads. Only by
stimulating circulation and purifying
the blood can it be done. For quick,
sure release from these pests use Ferrozone; it drives all humors from the
blood, makes the skin healthy, tones
up the system. With the pure nutritious blood made by Ferrozone it's impossible to suffer from any skin disease. You'll have a smooth, delightful
skin, healthy color and beautiful complexion by using Ferrozone—and you
will feel immensely better as well.

Woodland's, druggist.
The Spokesman-Review of the
7th inst. says: "J. R. Vail, of Laurier, Ferry County, Wash., subscribed six mojths for the Spokesman-Review and then wondered
what to do with the 400 special ballots coming to him. He decided it
by giving Miss Maude Carter of Garfield, Wash., 133, Miss FJorence
Manly of Republic, Wash., 133, and
Miss Minerva Foley of Republic,
Wash., 133." A reader of The Sun
at Laurier sends us the following
comment on the above: "This is
probably all true—except that Mr.
J. R. Vail removed to Lyndon,
Wash., January 12, 1905, and hns
not been here since." The puzzle
to the above is, find out what Mr.
Vail did with ihe single ballot which
he retained.
What Causes Snoring?
When asleep, people that snore
breathe thruugh the mouth instead of
the nostrils, which are choked with
catarrh. Just use Catarrhozone before retiring and you'll quickly cure
the snoring habit. By destroying the
cause of catarrh and healing the membranes, Catarrhozone makes a complete cure in every ease; it cleans the
nostrils, stops the discharge and prevents dropping in the throat in a few
minutes. Nothing so pleasant or certain to cure snoring, catarrh or colds
as Catarrhozone—that's worth remembering.   H. E. Woodland, drugg:.:t.

How * Porcupine Flf-htn a Snake.
A man who witnessed a fight between a porcupine and a blacksnake
thus describes the battle: "I came upon
the scene Just as the hedgehog began
the attack upon tbe snake, which was
lying stretched out on the road asleep.
Tbe hog advanced cautiously upon tbe
reptile and seized Its tall In Its mouth,
giving it a sharp bite.   Then he quickly withdrew a few feet and, rolling
himself  Into a compact, spiny  ball,
awaited    developments.    The    snake
upon   being   thus   rudely   awakened
turned In fury  upon bis antagonist,
striking tbe bog again and again wltb
Its fangs.   The wily hedgehog, secure-
| ly Intrenched within Its spiny armor,
j remained perfectly motionless all tbe
while, allowing the snake to keep up
I the attack.   At every stroke the Jaws
| of tbe snake would become filled with
] the spines until at last, exhausted and
i bleeding from dozens of wounds caused by the needlelike spines ot tbe hog,
the snake gave up the battle.    This
was evidently what tbe hedgehog was
waiting for, as he Immediately proceeded to roll over the snake again and
sgain until be bad completely disemboweled bis victim."
