Issued Twice a Week
FISH CHARMERS
Grand Forks Anglers Ran Out
of Storage Room After an
Hour's Work

party. He only caught one trout
and that only weighed four pounds,
it had been intended to devote two
hours to .fishing, but after an hour
the storage room ran Bhort, and the
train proceeded to Republic.
Two hours were devoted to seeing
the sights in Rebublic, and after an
eucellent dinner at the Webster, the
train started on its homeward run
at 7 o'clock, arriving in this city at
9. Everybody who took in the outing had a pleasnnt time, and returned home greatly refreshed and belter prepared to grapple with the
business problems during the present week.
In order to escape from the1 heat
and dust of the metropolis of the
boundary country for a few hours,
twenty young men of this city last
Sunday chartered a special Kettle
Valley line train and made a trip to
Ferguson for the purpose i»f making
a raid on the brook trout The following are the names ol those who
boarded the train in thw eity at 11
o'clock: Mayor Hutton, L.A. Man-
ley, A. H. Lawder, Ed Davis, Robert Gaw, Geo. Holford, John Temple, Harry Hunter, A. Blakeway,
Pat Mitchell, Fred Russell, H. A.
Sheads, Leo Mader, Martin Dufour,
J. D. Campbell, Robert Mcintosh,
Dr. Frank, Miles Barrett, The Sun
reporter and Conductor Hanson.
Mr. Dufour was the chef of the party
and presided over the refreshment
department, and Messrs. Mader and
Sheads composed the orchestra,
while the Sun man was the only
occupant of the improvised press
gallery. At Danville the party was
joined by E. A. MaCauley and
American Customs Officer Page. An
uneventful run waa made to Curlew,
where Dr. Manly, Pat Welch and
the treasurer of Ferry county welcomed the fishermen.
The first stop after having Curlew
was at the eight mile loqg narrow
gauge spur from the Belcher mine to
the Great Northern track. Contractor Jones, of this city, wi|l> complete
the work on this spur this week
The rolling stock is already on the
ground, and the ore bunkers at this
end have been finished. There is
considerable, talk on the reservation
at present of this road being constructed as far as Keller, Wash.,
a distance of about sixty miles.
The official photographer, Leo
Mader, took a picture of the party,
grouped about the engine, at this
point.
On arrival at Ferguson the lamentable discovery was made that the
bait had, by some oversight, heen
left behind in Grand Forks. This
fact caused consternation in the
crowd for a few moments, but the
blunder was finally overcome by
half the members fishing, while the
other half was put to work catching
bugs and grasshoppers. But the
supply of grasshoppers was exhausted long before the two hours allotted
for fishing had expired. A hippy
inspiration then struck the manager
of the party He ordered the orchestra to play a few choice selections. This so charmed the fish
that they immediately began to waltz
in the water, and in the confusion
that followed, the majority of them
became entangled with the hooks,
and tbey were pulled on dry land by
the alert fisheimen. In this manner
it did not take long to fill the refrigerator car which had been taken
along to carry tbem in. Mayor Hutton was the unluckiest man in the
CITY NEWS
Jeffery Hammar, grand representative, and Geo. Hull, delegate, left
last Saturday for Nanaime to attend
the annual meeting of the Grand
Lodge of British Columbia, Knights
of Pythias; which cenvenes in that
oity today. The annual meeting of
the Grand Lodge of the Rathbone
Sisters will also be held at the same
place on the above date, and Mrs.
Geo. Chappie and W. K. C. Manly,
both grand officers, accompanied
Messrs. Ha malar and Hull to attend
the session.
Last week the Midway postoffice
was broken into and robbed. No
clue to the thieves.
Eli Lavalley's old hotel at Christi
na lake will be remodeled and thoroughly equipped for the summer
season.
This week the Greenwood Ledger
is 'scheduled to put out its first issue.
It is to be a seven-column folio sheet,
with J, W. Grier as editor.
City Solicitor J. P. Meyers-Gray, of
Greenwood, has removed to Fernie,
and formed a law partnership with S.
'P. Eckstein, formerly of Grand Forks.
There was trouble at the power
station of the British Bolnmbia Construction and Distribution company
lest week, being built at Greenwood,
the men demanding at first $3 for
ten hours, they having been receiving
$2.75. This was granted, when they
laid down their tools and demanded
$3 for nine hours.
In the county ci lurt at Greenwood
last week the Providence employees'
damage cases for false imprisonment
Bgainst J. J. Caulfield and W. M.
Law were tried, the following damages being assessed: P. J. Dermody,

Ole Berg,Nick Clerf, Edward Goselin,
George Swandle, Samuel Iverson, E.
M. Lund, J.K. Johnson, Simon Lang
lois, John Linklatter and Isaac
Moore, $25 each. This is the wind-
up of the more or less famous Prov
dence mine troubles.
A Long Session, But No Important Business Transacted
Sanitary Conditions and Purchase of City Team Main
Issues Discussed
Word has been received from
Greenwood that the strike of W. P.
Tierney's force is over and that the
men have returned to work. No
statement as to the basis of the settle
ment has been received here. Mr.
Tierney says that he has not had
any trouble with his workmen, who
went out in sympathy with the employees of the British Columbia Smelt-
ter company.
According to all reports, the heavy
frost of last week did but little damage to fruit trees and vegetables.
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chamber last night, Mayor Hutton,
Aid. Cooper, Gaw, Lequime and McDonald being present.
A communication from F. G. Gamble, engineer of the lands and works
'department, informed the council
that the plans of the new Fourth
street traffic bridge had been forwarded to this city/
A communication from the chief o!
the fire department asked for a donation of S100 for the sports to be held
in this city by the department on
Dominion Day. Aid. Gaw said that
Phoenix intended to eel brate Do
minion day this year, and he thought
the firemen ougli,t to go up tliere anl
endeavor to bring back some of the
prizes. Aid. Cooper stated that the
Grand Forks lire department had
declared its intention to celebrate the
day before Peoenix, and that the city
council of that city had been so in
formed. On motion of Aid. Clements
and Lequime, the request of the fire
chief was granted.
Applications for city water were re'
ceived from the Catholic church, and
for lights for three houses from J. G
McDonald. Referred to water and
light committee.
A petition was received from Geo.
Chappie and numerous other property
owners, asking the council to open up
the alleyway between Bridge street
and Winuipeg avenue, from Riverside
avenue to Second street, was referred
to the board of works, with instructions to investigate the matter and
report. In this connection a long discussion ensued concerning unsanitary
conditions of the alleyways in the
business district. On motion of Aid.
Clements and Cooper, the police com
inissioners were requested to instruct
the chief of police to notify th., property owners to put their premises iu
proper sanitary conditions.
An application for city water for
the Grand Forks Steel Construction
works was referred to the water
and light committees, with power to
act. A great deal of time was consumed on this subject in discussing
the size of pipe to be laid.
Mayor Hutton brought up the subject of street sprinkling. Aid. McDonald advocated the city buying a
team and doing its own sprinkling.
By purchaing a team, the city could
also do its own scavenger work, and
thus make the team earn its own
wages. This scheme met with some
favor. The Mayor stated that last
year the street sprinkling had only
cost 8300 or $400, while the previous year the team had cost the city
$1300 or $1400. No definite action
was taken, a committee being appointed to investigate the matter and report at the next meeting.
On motion of Aid. Clements, the
date for holding the court of revision
was fixed for J une 17, at 2 p. m.
The following accounts were ordered paid:

DEATH OF A PIONEER
$84 COPPER ORE
Rich Hnd Made on the M. S.
Claim, in Gloucester
Camp
Hugh McEwen, aged sixty-three
years, a pioneer of this valley, died at
his home, one mile west of the city,
at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, after
a brief illness. Deceased leaves a
widow and ievendaughters,onemarried,
to mourn his loss. Mr. McEwen was
born in Glengary county, Ontario,
November 21, 1843, and came to this
valley in September, 1893. He
hail a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, all of whom esteemed
him highly for his integrity and
straightforwardness. Profound sympathy is being expressed for the bereaved family.
The funeral will be held at threi
o'clock tomorrow afternoon from the
family residence. Bev. Mr. Auvache,
pastor of the Baptist church, will
conduct the services. Interment will
be made in the city cemetery.
The Coal Licenses
The' recent decision of the full
court in the appeals of Smart and
Leckie are of the utmost importance
to all holders of provincial licenses.
Mr. Duffs judgment constitutes the
finding of the full court, Morrison, J.,
concurring and Irving,. J, concurring
in one appeal but differing with the
other two judges on the second Case.
The facts of the case are very xlearly
set out in the judgment of Mr. Justice Duff, the main points at issue being well remembered by all readers
of The Sun. The result of the judgment is to hold that if an applicant
has complied with the statutory conditions calling for the grant of a
license the chief commissioner must
grant such applicant a license under
the regular form without any special
ir other conditions imposed. Incidentally Mr. Justice Duff holds that
the chief commissioner had no legal
authority for inserting the celebrated
"special clauses" in the licenses issued
for East Kootenay coal lands. The
judgment marks another stop in the
long drawn out tangle involving the
coal and oil lauds ill East Kootenay
and the respective rights of applicants
for licenses therefor. Probably the
next step will bo to renew the original
application either to judge Wilson or
judge Forin.
A. E. Smith & Co. Bond the
Property and Will Start
Development
Strained Back And Side.
"While working in a sawmill,"
writes C. E. Keeney, from Ottawa,
'I starined my back ami side so severely 1 had to go to bed. Every
moment caused me torture. I tided
different oils and liniments, but wasn't
helped till I used Nerviline. Even
tho lirst application gave considerable
relief. In three days I was again at
work. Other men in the mill use
Nervilino with tremendous lxmefit
too." Au honest record of nearly
fifty years has established tho value
of Poison's Nerviline.
E.H. C. Rawlinson and Pete Donaldson returned on Saturday from
Gloucester cam |1, and brought back
news of an important strike on tho
M. S. claim, in that camp, owned
by Frank Fritz of this city. They
also brought about twenty-five
pounds of the ore with them to the
eity. Yesterday Mr. A. Erskine
Smith had a sample of the rock assayed at the Granby smelter, and it
gave.returns of 22.4 per cent copper
and a trace of gold. With copper at
18|c per pound, this is equivalent
to about 884 per ton. The ore is of
a solid chalcopyrite nature. • The
size and extent of the ore body is
yet uncertain, as the strike was
made at a new workings in the centre of the claim. However, the bottom of a four-foot shaft is all in ore,
andj indications point to quantity as
well as quality. The M. S. is situate within a mile of the Gloucester
mine, on the eastern slope ol Gloucester mountain.
The news of the strike created
quite a stir in local mining circles,
and A. Erskine Smith immediately
obtained a bond on the group of
clai-ns, consisting of the M. S. and
Magdalene, owned by Frank Fritz,
and the Crystal Copper, owned
jointly by Frank Fritz and H.B. Cannon. The bond covers all of Mr.
Fritz's interest in the properties. A
substantial cash payment made, and
and the balance of the bond fulls
in six months.
Mr. Smith left for the property
this morning, and development work
on a large scale, under the direction
of Mr. Fritz, is to be commenced
immediately.
A man named Hargraves, employed at the Granby smelter, was badly
scalded last Saturday. He was removed to the hospital, where he is doing as well as can be expected. He
will be laid up for about two weeks.
There  is a great 'scramble among
the city employees at the cicy offices
this morning for the position as driver
of the corporation's scavenger wagon.
Messrs. J. 0. and A. .1. MacDonald, of the Grand Forks Steel Construction Works.will give a free dance
in their building as soon as the framework lias been completed.
Purgatives Are Dangerous
They gripe, causo burning pains
and make the constipated condition
even worse. Physicians say the ideal
laxative is Dr. Hamilton's Pills of
Mandrake and Butternut; they are
exceedingly mild, composed only of
health-giving vegetable extracts. Dr.
Hamilton's Pills restore regular movement of tho bowels, strengthen the
stomach and purify the blood. For
constipation, sick headache, billious-
ness and disordered digestion no medicine on earth makes such remarkable
cures as Dr. Hamilton's Pills. Try

WHO CONTROLS THE
BREWERIES?
Last year there was considerable
excitement over the liquor licenses in
the eity, and the present council adjusted the quitter by raising saloon
licenses to $1000 a year, while hotels
are charged $500 a year license. We
understand that breweries may stream
out to the public nil the beer tiny
can brew on a license of 850 a year.
It is reported on good authority tl at
a certain brewery in this eity, last
Sunday sold at the brewery thirty
kegs of beer, besides driving a delivery
wagon all day delivering beer to i all
parts of the city, It is not surprising
that the saloon men who are charged
a 81000 a year license, and the hotel
men who have an expense of several
$1000, besides a 8500 license before
they can sell a glass of beer have a
kick coining. They are prohibited
from selling a gli.ss of beer on Sunday
while their neighbor is "hitting the
high places" with it. It is a matter
that deserves consideration by the
council and commissioners. If they
can remedy the injustice it should be
done without delay; and if it is beyond their power to give value in the
form of fair | lay for the high 'licenses
there is an opportunity for thom to
distinguish themselves by repealing
the by-laws they passed.

H. II. Triiomao, the well known

would call it bronchitis, asthma or

is forever prevented by using L'atarrh-

A special meeting of the Dominion Copper company will he held in
Phoenix on Saturday next, May 12,"
for the purpose o: authorizing the
issuance and sale of 300,000 first

shares of capital stock, par $10.
Books close May 3, reopen May 13.
A company circular states that
the proceeds from sale of Dominion
Copper company stocks and bonds
now in treasury will be devoted to
purchase of additional mining property and new equipment, for devel-
oniiieiit work, enlargement of smeller plant, railroad connections and
possibly for construction of new
smeller.
The prior right of subscription is
r served for stookholders, bonds and
stock to be sold together. Each bond
of $100 par value will be sold with
76 shares of the stock for 1229.80.
It will be impossible to offer less
amounts of securities because the
unit of subscription must be based
on ratio of ainonnt of bonds to
amount of Stock availabe.
The outstan ling stock of the Dominion company is about 270,000
shares, par 810, while of a total of
$1,0.00,000 bonds authorized, $700,-

| jA number of prominent Pytliians
fr ini this citv went over to Republic
last evening, tbe occa-lion being tbe
visit of tbe grand chancellor of the
state of Washington to that city, and
the Grand Forks Knights attended
his reception and to assist in putting
through a few candidates.
"The Oriental Limited" is the title
of a folder just issued by the Passen*
! ger Department of the Great Northern Railway, descriptive of that Crack
transcontinental train. This new production is distinctive among the general run of railway literature. The
covers immediately catch the eye with
I Oriental !idornnieiits,'>io ninent among
I them being a Chinese ideograph siimi
fying "long.life and happiness."   This
adornment is one whinh appeared on
the robes nf Prince Tsai Tse, nephew
I to the Princess Dowager of China, tin
his recent visit to this country. The
fact that he and his suite traveled aero- s
America on the Oriental. Limited
makes it especially appropriate that
this iles:trii should ap|ear on this
latest folder descriptive-of the Orient,
al Limited. The c ivers are drak olive,
the lettering being in miilt and Vermillion. The foh'er wh n extended
is about a yard in length. Extending
clear across the inside pages is a topo
Sraphicnl map showing in a striking
••a n r th" obaraiter of the countiy
traversed by the Oriental Lim.tei..
On the same pages is also a large din
gram showing the arrangement of nil
the ears which make this superb
train, together with a photographic
re-production' of. the train in motion.
The other pages are taken up with
descriptive matter relative to the
equipment, together with interior
views of the cars. These are all in
color-1, giving an accurate idea of the
luxurious furni-lpngs.

When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat a nd
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business   de
mands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
Your Are Ailing
Not quite sick,—but robbed of ambition to work—find it hard to think
e'early. Not il! enough to think of
rlyin-r, but bad enough for lite to be
I retty dull. There is a remedy—
Ferrozone—that quickly lifts that
half-dead feeling. Gracious, but Ferrozone makes you feel good! it sharpens the dullest appetite, makes it keen
as a razor.
Blood? Ferrozone makes lots of it,
the rich nourishing kind that vitalizes
the whole body. You'll be wonderfully quickened, immensely strength
oned, feel hearty anrl vigorous after
using Ferrozone. Buoyant health,
surplus vigor and reserve energy all
come from this great restorative.
