W. E. Caporn, who owns a big
ranch and a number of mining
claims near this city, has returned
from an eight months' trip abroad.
Mr. Caporn reports having had a
pleasant and most interesting journey. He spent three months in
London, and became quite accustomed to the heavy fogs; so much so,
that he says the darkest British Co-
uinbia night now looks as bright as
i new silver dollar. In f ct, his
eyesight become strengthened to such
an extent thut he now feels certain
he could discern an approaching
boom on the blackest night. He
also learned to speak thc Cockney
language very fluently. The great
est peculiarity about this language,
he says, is thut it contains no cuss
words. He also put in a month in
Paris, and the Inst week he wus
there he was frequently mistaken for
a native Parisian. Ho is now able
to order a sumptuous dinner from
tho most intricate French menu.
How the society people ofthe Boundary must envy him. From Paris
he went to northern Italy, noted for its
wines, singers and stiletto artists.
On his homeward journey Mr. Caporn stopped off for a few rjays in
Havana, Cuba, and the charms of
the City of Mexico captivated him
to such an extent that he was unable to tear himself loose for a
month. He also lingered for a brief
time in southern California. Mr.
Caporn says tbat the only time the
customs officers took the trouble to
go through his baggage was when be
re-entered his native Canada.

Hardy Bros., who own and oper
ate an up-to-date ranch about a mile
northwest of the city,,have just completed constructing another large
lime kiln, and they now have a capacity of 50 barrels per day. They
have invented a number of labor
saving devices that enable them
to produce lime at a less cost than
auy other concern in the province.
Chutes have been constructed from
the quarry to tbe kilns, thus doing
away with , a great deal of manual
labor. Their lime is shipped to all
parts of British Columbia and the
Northwest territories, and last yenr
they derived quite a snug little for

energetic and enterprising, they are
deserving of success.

The public . school pupils and

A Victoria dispatch of the 28th
inst says: In the matter of the
Midway & Vernon railway subsidy,
referred by the McBride government
to Chief Justice Hunter, his lordship rendered his decision this afternoon, vindicating the stand made by
Price Eflison, M.L.A., during the recent session of the legislature and
clearly proving the contention made
in the house by the government to
have been an entirely erroneous one.
The learned chief justice finds
that work did actually commence before the expiration of the co'mpanyi*S|
charter,* by the employment of several men, and he accordingly holds
that thc railway company did substantially comply with tho conditions in their charter, adding that it
was not competent for thc legislature to vary thc terms of the aid
granted by declaring whnt constituted '-construcsion." His lordship
also comments adversely on the success of promoters as "charter mongers," who claim that a certain
nmotint of this sort of work hns to
be done to induce capital to enter
the province.
H. Eldridge Receivev Two Bullets From Robber's

Ex-Aid. T. L. Crossen received

The quart bottles of Nelson beer
for 50c at thc Lion Bottliug  Works.
The Midway Star gives the following account of the attempted holdup iu that town:
At about 10:30 on Tuesday night
H. Eldridge, of the Midway drug
store, who was returning to the
store from somewhere up town, was
held up opposite the Eastern Townships bank and received two bullets
from the assassin's revolver, one entering the shoulder and the othcrthe
thigh.
On arriving at the bank corner,
the night being unusually dard, he
was accosted by a man who commanded him to hold up his hands
and make no noise. Having but a
few more steps to go, he attempted
to proceed, when the villain discharged his revolver twice, one bullet, after striking Eldridge's shoulder, passing through the outside
window nnd an inner door of the
bank; while thc second bullet entered his thigh. So far as could be
made out in the darkness, the thug
wns about five feet eight or nine
inches in height, and of powerful
build. Ae the street at that time was
practically deserted, it was impossible to see in which direction the robber escaped. Mr. Eldridge managed
to get to his room, and Dr. Newcombe was soon in attendance. At
the present time the patient is progressing as favorably as could be expected, and . if no complications
arise, it will not be long before he is
about again.
The theory is that it was another
attempt to rob the bank, and that
the robbor wns either surprised or
believed tbat he had eornered Manager Moe and intended to compel
him at tho point of the gun to open
the safe. At the time of the occur- •
rence Mr. Moe was working in tho
iifliee, and had u dim light burning,
a fact the robber was apparently unaware of, and this leads to thc belief
that he must have come up from the
southeast end of town. So far thu
police have no clue.

FRIDA\. MARCH 30, 1900
On Thursday next the ratepayers
of Grand Forks will be called upon
to decide whether they wish to grant
the Kettle Valley line running rights
through the city or not. Present indications nre that the by-law will be
approved by a large majority, as tbe
opposition to it appears to be very
feeble. Thc Sun has already given
its reasons for supporting the mens
ure. We are unable to-see how any
person who prizes the.city's future
welfare could vote against it. Tha
road, as it only crosses three or
four streets, will not disligure the
city. While it is true that a few
residental properties muy be depreciated in value, this fact is more
than balanced by the enhanced value
the construction of the road will
give to down-town business properties. The defeat of the by-law
will mean another period of business despression, from which it may
take (lie eity years to recover, while
its adoption will be forerunner of an
era. of prosperity that should place
the eity on a solid foundation. The
railway will open a section ot
country trilnvary to this city that
s rich in minerals and timber; it
•will distribute thoursands of dollars
among the citizens and business
men; it will give us a modern station in the heart of the city, and
improved railway facilities. Some
fears have been entertained Jtlint certain sections of thc city may vote
against the by-law, but we are of tin-
opinion that this alarm is ground
less, as il is generally realized that
one section o' the city cannot enjoy
prosperity without all portions deriving a certain amount of benefit"
from it.
The bonus by-law in aid of the
Ornnd Forks Steel Construction
WorkB should receive the support of
every ratepayers. The subsidy asked
for is so small that it will scarcely be
missed. The proposed enterprise is
capable of vast expansion, and may
develop1 into the largest concern ot
this nature in the interior of the
province, thus giving remunerative
employment to a large number of
skilled workmen. It is manufacturing concerns ot this nature that do
nioi'u than anything else to build up
cities. The man that would vote
against this by-law would be very
short-sighted indeed.
To the Citizens of Grand Forks
In conversation with several citizens, the remark was made that as the
Kettlo River Valley Railway com
pany had been bound by Clauses 3
and 4 of the by-law to a definite beginning and ending time, in which to
commence and complete thc construction of the railway to a point fifty
miles up tho North Fork of the Kettle river, the by-law should uudoiibt
edly receive the fullost support of
every citizen; and they all expected
to see the by-law carried by a large
majority, for tho reason that the
building of the road up the North
Fork would mean the distribution of
many thousands of dollars among the
citizens, merchants and mine owners
of the city, not only during the active period of construction, but for
years afterwards, or just so long as
the timber and mineral resources of
tho Nortli Fork will last and continue
to produce good ore and lumber, and
it is understood in the mining world
at large, and claimed by many con-
servrtive citizens of Grand Forks, that
the productive period of this district
ill lust for many, many years, thus
adding one more strong argument to
tho- many good ones already advanced
why the eity of Grand Forks should be
called the Gateway City to the entire
Boundary country. I believe the
building of railway will prove of general benefit to the whole city. Respectfully yours, ,*,-,-,
I  H. W. Warrington.

What Causes Snoring
When asleep people that snore
breathe through 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 tho
nostrils, stops the discharge and prevents dropping in the throat in u few
minutes. Nothing so pleasant or certain to cure shoring, catarrh or colds
Catarrhozone—that's worth remembering.    Sold by all druggists.

How to Cure Toothache
Any aching tooth can be relieved
instantly with Nerviline. Fill the
cavity with backing 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, quicker, more satisfactory than any other liniment, Poison's
Nerviline has been the largest seller
for nearly fifty years; try it yourself.
Sold by all druggists.
