A CITY BEAUTIFUL
Prince Rupert, G. 17 P. Terminus, to Be the Model
City of Canada
Promoters Aim  to Make It
the Headquarters for
Tourists
Canada's newest city—that is to be
—Prince Rupert, is expected to be
the most perfectly laidout and most
beautiful city in the Dominion. It is
being laid out under conditions that
are practically impossible with the
ordinary city, whioh starts with a few
heterogeneous building and grows on.
Prince Rupert is foreordain.nl to be a
western metropolis before a foundation is laid, and its whole site is at
present owned by the Grand Trunk
Pacific. The company has not been
slow to see the opportunities offered
to make it the Washington of Canada, and is proceeding accordingly,
Not only are expert surveyors now at
work planning the streets and parks
and other features of the city, but
expert landscape gardeners have been
engaged, who will be sent out to see
that it will be a city beautiful "in its
general outline, as well as one with
broad streets and all the requirements
of a modern metropolis. During the
present year, after the surveys have
been completed, the details of the
company's plans for starting the new
city on its way will be perfected, and
by next spring the lots and building
sites will probably be ready for sale.
The town will probably be well under
way before the Grand Trunk Pacific
is completed, as it is situated along
the line of coast traffic, in the midst
of some of the most wonderful scenery
in America. There will also be a
rapid growth of trade caused by the
settlement along the line of the road
and the immense number of men and
supplies used on iis construction,
which will have to pass through the
Terminal City. The Grand Trunk
Pacific officials expect that Prince
Rupert will uot only be a great trading city, but will speedily become a
headquarters fur tourists.
Geological Survey
It is a fact—and a very important
fact—that the majority of people in
this country—even of the educated
people—have very little conception of
the usefulness uf a geologicul survey.
Other countries have geological surveys, and a true Canadian is loth
that his country should be behind in
such matters, but exactly what matter
it  is or what it matters is a  question
he would find it very difficult to an*
I
swer.
To some extent, it has been, perhaps; the fault of the geological survey itself, that the Canadian people
know so little of its work and its ob
jects. Scientific men do not us a
rule combine technical attainments
with business methods, and this has
been the case, for many years, with
those in charge of the Canadian survey. The scientific mind that recognizes the usefulness of printing scientific reports does not always grant the
further usefulness of seeing that those
reports are read.
The Geological Survey cannot be
accused of inordinately advertising
their publications. Those in the
'know,' snd those who have access to
scientific libraries, can doubtless keep
track of the reports being produced,
but the ordinary individual, not in
touch with universities or technical
institutions, may easily be totally ignorant of the publication of a report
on perhaps the very subject that most
concerns hiin.
Not many weeks ago the American
scientific press hailed with delight a
discovery that hod been made in connection with corundum by a United
States geological expert. The discovery had, however, been made and reported on two years previously by
our own Survey, but it had been hidden in an unwholesoinly dry-looking
blue-book, which, we are pretty sure,
was shucked straight into the waste
paper basket by most of those who received it.
Whatever may have been the views
of the several past directors of the
Survey, from Logan to the present
time, it is quite evident that the lately
appointed director, Mr. A. P. Low,
has no intention of allowing the useful work being done by his officers tu
escape the notice of the public. The
press of Canada is kept posted—and
in a way that requires of its readers
no special scientific attainments—with
any work done by the Survey that is
likely to be of general and economic
interest. In future no mining man
will have an excuse for rot studying
all the data available concerning the
district in which he is working or
which he intends to prospect. It will
be very strange if he cannot find in
the voluminous reports of our Survey
some useful hints, or some statement
that may save him both time and
money. Any bona fide applicant has
only to write to the Survey fjr any
published report in which he is personally interested, and we understand
he will receive the same by return
post, free,of.charge.
Mahara's Minstrels
One of the novelties in minstrelsy
this season and a leading feature with
the Mahara .Minstrels is the appearance in the lirst part of four handsomely costumed lady vocalists. This
quartette of ladies.are graduates of
the famous Dunavin musical college
where all high class colored musicians
are educated. It is acknowledged
that the singing features of this organization compare favoiVbly with
the finest operatic companies on the
stage and surpasses in excellency of
harmony all so-called minstrel vocalists. It has always been the endeavor
of Frank Mahara to excel in the siii|
ing features, and these ladies aided hy
28 mail voices in grand chorus cei
tainly proves that the management
has struck the keynote to success.
Mahara's challenge band and or
cliestra will give a street parade on
Thursday, Juno 28, at noon, mid a
c iiicert at ":.'!0 p. m.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
General  Merchandise Store
Will Be Opened at Bannock City
The provincial general elections
Wednesday at Halifax resulted in the
return of the government. The opposition, which had only two members
in the last house, will apparently be
better represented in the new. The
returns indicate the election of six
members, McMillen in Inverness,Tan-
ner and Bailey in Pictou, Landry in
Richmond, and Wilcox in Hants, and
Campbell (independent liberal) in
Kings. Two members of the government, Wickwire and Patterson, huve
been beaten.
Steel   Construction    Works
Will Be Ready for Business July 1st
Bannock City and Niagara are
likely to experience huge waves of
prosperity this summer in consequence of railway construction up
the North Fork. G. A. Rendell, the
Greenwood and Midway merchant,
intends to take advantage of thiB opportunity by opening a large general
store at the former place.
The Messrs. MacDonald, of the
Grand Forks Steel Construction
works, state that just at present they
are experiencing some exasperating
delays regarding the arrival of their
machinery. However, they expect
to have the works running at full
lilast by the first of the month.
Aid. B. Lequime, of this city,
will erect a large general store opposite his hotel in Franklin, and lumber is now being freighted to the
camp for the building.
It's like hunting for a needle in a
haystack to find a man in Grand
Forks who doesn't own a North
Fork townsite.
Sonje of ihe Nortli Fork mining
men claim that two or three of the
(irand Forks merchants are show
ing partiality to the owners of timber limits in the northern country,
and cite one glaring instance to corroborate their assertion. Whether
these complaints are well founded or
not, the parties concerned alone
know ; but to the man who is watch
ing current events from the apex of
Observation mountain, it appears to
be an authenticated fact that altogether too much merchandise from
surrounding towns is finding its
way to Franklin camp.
J. M. Simpson has returned from
a business trip to Spokane.
Dr. Dickson's new automobile arrived from Chicago yesterday, and
the doctor immediately placed it in
commission by taking 11 spin around
the city. He handled the machine
like a graduate cliaffetir.
A fine vein of ore wns struck last
Saturday in the Goldfinch mine,
Greenwood eamp, The property ia
owned by Mark F. Madden and as
sociates of Chicngo, who have run n
tunnel 600 feet. The vein opened
up is two and a half feet wide and
averages 850 to the ton. The ore is
at a depth of about 400 feet.
Mr. A. Johnson, who hasjonduct-
ed the Stemwinder hotel at Whoenlx
the past year, has leased the Grand
Central hotel building in$"Bridgo
street, and lis having the siflnc repainted and otherwise fixed up.
It is his intention to reopen this
place as a stictly up-to-date restaurant with a lunch counter in connection, and also to have the rooms refurnished for lodging purposes.  Mr.
Johnson expects to be ready to serve
the public about Monday of the
coining week. The dining room will
be in charge of Mr. J. A. Williams,
an experienced man,
Commencing with Monday a nine-
hour day will go into effect in the
mechanics' and carpenters' department at the Granby smelter.
Chas. T. Clark, of Spokane, Wash.,
representing the Remington Typewriter company, was in the city yesterday.
Owing to the fire at the Alberta
this week, the reopening of that house
will not take place until some time
next week. The house, after it has
been thoroughly remodeled, is to be
rechristened to the Walhalla.
Mrs. Bovee will give a grand ball
in the near future at the opera house.

It is pretty certain that another
grocery Btore will be started in the
city in the near future. Let the good
work go on,
Dominion Copper shares are now
quoted in Boston and New York on
the $10 per value basis.
Alberta Hotel Fire
About seven o'clock Wednesday
evening one of the guests at the
Windsor hotel while sitting in his
room, which faces the alley, was attracted by what appeared to be a
thin column of smoke issuing from
the roof of the Alberta hotel, recently purchased by Mr. S. Nelson, just
across the alley. Not being quite
certain as to whether it was a real
fire or only another of those popular
"smokers" the guest promptly pro
ceeded to call the attention of the
proprietor, A. W. Fraser, to what he
had Been. Mr. Frazer immediately
stuped out to have a look. A short
scrutiny of the building in question
convinced him that the blue streak
arising was occasioned by nnything
but a clay pipe, and realizing that
this was not a situation when time
is of no consequence he hastened to
siiiid iu an alarm. Thc fire, which
had started in a rear building, used
for kitchen purposes, had gained
considerable headway when the gal
lant fire boys reached thc scene, and
only by prompt and prccisive action
on their part was a more serious
eoni! gration averted. The dam
age done by the fire is small, partly
covered by insurance. Repair work
on the damaged portion of the building was commenced yesterday, but
Mr. Nelson states that'he will not be
able to have the Alberta ready for
business on the day specified in a
previous issue of The Sun, owing to
the handicap caused by fire and
water.
How the fire started is a mystery,
but the contagious nature of fire in
the city of late leads many to believe
in the proverbial African in the
wood-pile theory.
Force on Kettle Valley Line
Is Being  Increased
Daily
Camps Are Now Established
as   Far Nortn  as
Niagara
About three hundred men are now
employed on the Kettle Valley line
grade, and more are being added
daily. Camps have been established
as far north as Niagara, and the
work of bombarding the mountain
sides has commenced in earnest all
along the line. At the camp near
the Wayside inn a good start has
been made, about half a mile of the
roadbed having been completed.
The work of clearing the right of
way is now being carried on expeditiously, the stretch across the slough
from Frank Miller's ranch to the
city having been completed. On
Monday last G. L. Woodard. of
Phoenix, who has the contract for
clearing sixteen miles of the right of
way, established his camp above
Smelter lake, and is now working
between thirty and forty men.
A party of high officials of the
road is expected to arrive in the city
from Toronto about the 1st of July.
Jas. H. Kennedy, chief engineer
of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway, arrived in the city from
Midway on Wednesday, and made a
trip over the survey of thc North
Fork extension between this city and
the Pathfinder mine. It is stated

Tho great "Artie" scandal bas gone

hv tiie opposition members during the
present session, snys the Ottawa Free
Pi-ess. When it was first discovered
no words wen* strong enough to condemn those responsible. ''At last we

editors, anil the awful story was related under the biggest scare heads and
in the boldest, type.- Sir Wilfrid
Laurier promptly ordered an inquiry,
This was the last thing those responsible for the wild charges were desirous of. Their interest Lnmediately be-
gan to wain* for thev knew that their
bluff had been called. However, a
few of them turned up at the opening
of the investigation fur form's sake
and one of them, Mr. Bennett, took
the opportiinity,as might be expected,
to make some nasty and unwarranted
remarks. Witness after witness was
called nml frankly stated all he knew
about the expedition ami the supplies
ordered for it. Mr. Xorthrup, for
the opposition went on a fishing expedition, but. he had bad luck from
the start. Not a little of evidence of
wrong doin;* could be obtained, He-
liable ollieials, although they nwed
their positions to the party so anxious
to profit by any scandal, bore testimony that there was nothing extravagant in the requisitions, having regard to tho proposed three years' stay
of the vessels in the arctic regions. It
was also shown that when the Arctic
returned to Quebec she brought with
her a large proportion of the supplies
that she had on board when she first
sailed. Failing on this head, the opposition then tried to show that there
wns friction between the heads of the
expedition, but beyond minor troublss
such as occur under almost any cir-
cuiiistaiu -s, they were also unsuccessful in this direction. And now these
conservative members, apporantly ao
enthusiastic at the start, have practically given the thing up in clisgUtt.

Why That Weariness?
Tour's uneasy; restless, without appetite. Still worse your are thin and
faggad out. Work must be done, but
where in the strength to come from?
Make your blood nutritions and you'll
have lots of strength. Your only hope
is Ferrozone, an instant blood maker,
blood purifier, blood euricher. It
brings keen appetite, digests food, and
supplies nutrition for building up all
tie bodily tissues. Ferrozone makes
muscle and nerve fibre, increase yoar
weight, instills a reserve of energy into the body that defies weariness or
exhaustion from any cause. To have
virility and healhly vigor use Ferrozone which all dealers sell in 50c
boxes.
