Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, April 27,
Issued Twice a Week
r   MORE HILL LINES
Now Stated That the Great
Northern Will  Build to
Grand Prairie
Shuswap& Okanagan to Form
a Link in the New
Road
Last week the press dispatches announced the sale of the Shuswap k
Okanagan railway to the Great Northern coinpany. This week m letter
wat received in this oity: faoro Ottawa
stating that the Dominion parliament
had passed the amendment to the act
of incorporation of the Boundary,
Kamloops it Cajiboo railway, which
is to run from Grand Forks te Grand
Prairie. It is , now stated tbat this
proposed road is a,Great Northern
undertaking, and that the Shuswap k
Okanagan is te forrt»a link in the new
line. From all appearances, Grand
Forks will maintain her present repu
tation as the railway centre of the
province.
Geo. Taylor left yesterday with
four-horse teams for Franklin eamp
bring down the Kettle Valley line
surveyors and outfits,-the work c-f
locating the road to that point hav
ing been completed. On arrival in
this city the party will pitch their
camp at Smelter lake, where some
\revision work is to be dope.
J. J. Hill has informed the Montreal
liar i that his Canadian plains had
been greatly exaggerated. He intends building abom 1300 miles of
road. He also announced that he
would probably use foreign steel
rails.
The Toronto world says: The few
Canadian minds which have turned
towards annexation have only done so
when times were hard. '"President
Hill's advent is one of the,fruits of
prosperous times. It will contribute
to further prosperity. It will tend to
the enlangeinent'of Canada, and uot
****•.. to the greater glorification of the Star
.Spangled Banner.

The Fruit Trade.
The following stat ment'for publica
tion, has been received from Maxwell
Smith, dominion fruit inspector;
as there seems to be considerable
alarm and some misunderstand ing
as to the dominion government's in
tentions regarding the enforcement of
the existing laws regulating the fruit
trade, it might be well to say that:
In addition to my other duties, in
eluding the enforcement of the Fruit
Marks act, I am instructed to enforce
sections i and 5 of the "act respect
ing the packing and sale of certain
strple commodities, 1901," as amend'
ed in 1905.
Section 5 of that act states that
"Every box of berries or currants
offered for side and every berry box
manufactured and offered for sale in
Canada, shall lie plainly marked on
the* side of the box, in black letters at
half an Jncli square with the word
"short," unless it contains when level
full  as  nearly exactly as practicable
(A) at least four fifths of a quart,  or
(B) two-fifths of a quart.
This will allow those having berry
boxes on hand, or who may be im
porting berries in boxes, which do not
comply with the above regulations to
dispose of same by simply marking
them "short," but. I strongly recommend that no more illegal boxes or
baskets be purchased or manufactured, The justice and convenience of
having uniform standard packages
must appeal to all fair minded persons
and no undue hardship will be imposed on those who endeavor to get into
ine of quickly as possible. I shall
continue to exercise the same discreet
moderation as has characterized my
oflieial work in the past, but tliere
must be steady progress towards full
compliance with the fruit regulations
in order to insure the fullest measure
of harmony between growers, dealers,
consumers and inspectors.
The season's work in British Columbia for the staff of the geological
survey department has been announced as follows: Brock, Boyd and
Young will complete the work begun last year of Rossland camp, and
later on will go to the Lardeau country. • Leach will be employed in the
Bulkley valley and on the upper
waters of the Macquima river. Cars-
well goes to the Similkanfeeii district, nnd Lc Roy will bo employed
in defining the international boun
dary line.
An Okanogan editor printed an
item recently which stated that "the
man who is hugging the hired girl
had better stop or his name would be
published." In a day or two 25 citizens paid up their subscription and
told the editor to pay no attention to
the foolish stories going around.
Blake   Wilson,   manager  for  V
Burns & Co. in Nelson, was a visitor

Electrocuted and Roasted
on Power Line
The musicale and social given under
the auspices of the ladies of the Catholic church, in Eagles' hall Tuesday
evening, wus an artistic and financial
success, and the exchequer of the
church is about $100 better olf thnn
before it occurred. During the first
part of the evening cards occupied
tlio attention of the large assemblage
present, after which refreshments were
served in abundance. Then a program, consisting of songs, instrumental music and recitations, was rendered. Songs were given by Arthur
Napper, Miss Alice Lequime, Miss
Feeney and others, and Thomas Duffy
and H. Sheedy furnished thc instrumental music, with Mrs.'K. Miller as
accompanist. The affair wound up
with a dance, the orchestra furiosi
ing the music.
Mr. Willey, superintendent of tbe
Cascade "Power Company, Wednesday brought into this city an eagle
which had been electrocuted on the
branch line running into the Granby
smelter. The bird measured 7
feet from tip to tip, and was a fine
specimen of its specie. It bad been
burned, and when found was banging tu the wire with its claws. Mr.
Willey took the bird to Cascade with
him, and intends to organize an
aerie of the Fraternal Order of
Eagles. Poor eagle! It i.s at home
on the other side the line, but when
it screiiins over here it generally gets
the worst of it.
Louis W. Hill, president of the
Spokane Falls & Northern railway

to Midway. A special train passed
through this city yesterday for the
latter city, and on Mr. Hill's arrival
there will take him, his party and
auto bnck to the effete east. Whenever a high Great Northern ofllcia
visits this section some surprise in
the wuy of railway construction always follows close on his heals, and
it is to be assumed that there is no
exception to the present visit. If
nothing else comes of it, it is quite
likely that tracklaying on the Vancouver, Victory it Eastern, west of
Midway, will be commenced at an
early date.
L. A. Manly has returned to the

message was sent to governor Pardee
of California by premier McBride
"Governor Pardee, Sacramento—On

A. S. Blackmore, district coroner
of Greenwood, empanelled a jury in
Phoenix Monday afternoon to inquire
into the cause of tho death of J. W,
Carscadden, who was killed Sunday
night in a shot in the Brooklyn mine
of the Dominion Copper coinpany, the
following being the jury; P. W,
George, foreman; R. V. Chisholm, M.
H. Kane, T. R. Morrison, J. H. Graham and J. E. Mills. John H. Sampson, foreman of the mine, was the
first witness, being followed by Geo.
Johns, shift boss, John White, Nick
Potkogisk, Angus Nicholson, Jas.
Blackmore, A. S. Embree and Walter
Morrison, the latter the secretary of
the local branch of tho Miners' union.
The jury was taken down to the 150
foot level of the mine to view the
scene of the accident, and after deliberating over an hour returned a verdict that deceased came to his death
from a rock or ore falling on him from
the foot or side walls of the slope.
Carscadilen's cousin at Jngersoll, Out.,
and brother and sister of Brockton,
Out., were wired to, but no answer
has been received as yet. Deceused
had been a member of the Miners'
union but had allowed his card to
lapse.
At 3:15 o'clock Wednesday afternoon at San Francisco a shuck ol'
earthquake was fcft. It lasted nearly a minute and caused considerable
alarm, though no one was injured.
A number of burned buildings
which were still standing,in a weakened condition, were thrown down,
and frail buildings were considerably shaken up, but the damage
done was slight. Ths shock was also felt in Oakland and Berkeley,
hut in these places it was very slight
and of brief duration.

Opened for Public
Traffic
Cost $5500 and Is the Best
Bridge in This Part of
the Province
The new government wagon bridge
at Carson was completed today and
opened to public traffic. It is easily
the best structure of its kind in this
part of the province, being built entirely of coast fir and tamarac. It is
of the Howe truss pattern, the spall
across the river being 144 feet in
length, and is 16 wide, allowing two
teams to pass each other. Tliere are
but two piers, one on each side of the
river. On the east side, which is but
three or four feet from the international boundary line, tliere is a 40-
foot long trestle approach. The bridge
is forty feet high from the low water
to the top of' the span, and eighteen
feet from the driveway to the top,
thus giving sufficient headway for
skyscraping load to pass over it in
safety. The two piers are each sixteen feet wide, being very sharp at
the up-stream end, and the whole
bridge is substantially constructed.
The cost of the bridge is §5,500.
Robert Gaw, of this city, had the contract for its construction. Work on
it was started on the 1st of February
last. Under the efficient supervision
of Robert Mackintosh it has been
completed at this early date. It
would have been finished ere this had
not a wait for material from the const

World's Copper Production.
Greater activity in copper ruining
than was witnessed in 1905 has
never been witnessed. The total
production :'or the year was 712,7(>4
long tons according to the estimates
of Messrs. Henry R. Merton & Company for all countries excepting the
United States, for which figures
compiled by Thc Mining World has
been used. Compared with 1004
there is shown an increase in the
world's output of 71,095 tons, or
about 11 percent, while a comparison with ten years ago shows a
growth t.f over 90 per cent.
The following is a list ol' the leading copper producing countries with
rheir output in long tons of 2,240
pounds:
Australasia  ill,Kill
Canada 19.188
Chile 30,110
Japan 84,880
Mexico 50,940
Newfoundland 2,200
Russia 10,700
pain and Portugal 47,085
United States 362,789
Canada, with Newfoundland,
comes seventh in the list, but with
the rapidly increasing output the
Dominion should outstrip several of
ier rivals with a few years.

London insurance experts say the
British lire companies will have no
difficulty in promptly meeting all obligations growing out of the San Fran*
cisco disaster, and will come out of
the ordeal with soundness unimpaired
Tho times in a city article suggests
that the effect of the disaster on the
financial strength of the British companies easily may be exaggerated.
"Even supposing," says the Times,
"that at tbe worst the British companies affected had to pay eventually
60 per cent of their total liabilities in
San Francisco or £10,000,000, this
amount represents only .six months'
net premium income during the past
three years. In spite of the Ottawa
and Baltimore conflagrations, the reserves of tho companies have been
strengthened by fully six millions,
and three-quarters of the amounts
paid   in dividends, about  £2,0il0,00 ',

You consider
that a poorly
printed job coats
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
business   de
mands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
on advertisement, and a trial order will aonvince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
When Fish Begin to Bite.
There's a feelin'
Comes a-stealin'
Sorter shamefaced like an' queer,
Au' my heurt '11
Sorter startle
Jest about this time o' year,
Like a robin
That's a-lhrobbin'
With a uitttin'-tiine delight, '
When the sun is gettin' stronger
An' the days are gettin' longer
An' the fish begin to bite.
E/iery daisy
Seems as la/.y
Jest a-iiiiddin' iu the sun,
As a feller
Feelin' meller
When his evenin' chores are done,
An' a-knowin'
Where he'sgoin'
With his fishin' pole, all riglit,
When the sun is gettin' stronger
An' the days are gettin' longer
An' the fish begin to bite.
Ain't no other
Feelin', nether,   •
That'll grip you jest like this.
Can't outgrow it.
Don't you know it?
Then you don't know what you miss.
When you're' lishin',
Well, you're wishin'
Every other feller might,
When tho sun is gettin' stronger
An' the days are gettin' longer
An' the fish begin -to bite.

Coughers, Hawkers, Spitters!
Public expectoration is against the
common law, against the laws of
health also. When the throat tickles,
that's the time you need "Catarrho^
zone;" it soothes away the irritation,
cuts' out the phlegm and loosens tl
tight feeling. You'll quickly cure
that catarrh and throat trouble with
Catarrhozone. It positively prevents
new attacks and cures catarrh forever
and for all time to come. Don't take
our word for it, try Catarrhozone
yourself. Once used you'll be delighted with its pleasant and helpful
influence.
