THE STEEL WORKS
Grand.Forks' Latest Industrial  Enterprise Starts
Operations
Has Contracts a Year Ahead.
Sixteen Men Given Employment
Me-ws. J. C. and A. J. MacDonald, proprietors of the Grand Forks
Steel Construction Works, commenced
operations at that institution this
week. The plant is located near the
Great Northern station, in the West
ward, and its completion marks a
mile-stone in the industrial development of the city. Fifteen or sixteen
mechanics will be given steady employment at first. This force will be
increased as occasion demands. The
firm has enough work contracted for
at the present time U, keep the plant
in operation for a year.
The main building, which is constructed almost entirely of corrugated
iron, is 52x7(i feet in size. A travel
ing-crane, with a lifting capacity of
ten tons, runs from one enti of the
structure to the other, and outside, on
the platform, is a derrick of the same
capacity for handling heavy freight
received or shipped by railway. Oiie
of the heaviest and most interesting
pieces of machinery in this building is
a combination punch and shear, weighing nine tons, and capable of punch
ing a 1^-ineli hole through a l^-inch
steel plate. It was manufactured by
John Bertram k Sons, of Dundas,
Ont. While inspecting the plant,
The Sun reporter witnessed it perforate an inch thick steel plate as
easily as if it had been a sheet of
paper.
Among the other machinery of the
equipment is a splitting machine, with
a capacity of cutting a J-ineh plates ;
a 40-inch Aurora drill press, with
tapping attachment; a 157 cubic feet
air tompressor, manufactured by the
Canadian Rand Drill company, of
Sherbrooke, Ont., and a ltS-inch by
8-foot lathe, of the latest pattern,
made by the American Tool Works
company, of Cincinnati, Ohio, All
the machinery in this building is
operated by a 20-horsopower electric
motor.
The flange and forge building, directly east of the main structure, is
26x62 feet. In this building is located two 10.2 flanging clamps, oper*
ated by two 12-inch cylinders. A
blacksmith's outfit is also being installed in this building.
The coinpany will work up
all kinds steel plate, including structural steel, for commercial purposes.
In fact, they are. prepared to turn out
almost anything made of steel, with
ehe exception of work requiring casting. Their largest contract on hand
at present is to replace the roof over
the Granby smelter with a steel
structure.
Sheriff Seizes a City
Slocan, City is .in the clutches of
the law. Sheriff Tuck has served notice upon City Clerk Morrison that an
installment of a debt owed to C. E.
Smitheringale must be paid before
September 4 and if not he will im-
the amount, now $560 plus other expenses of collection, assessment, adver-
tiiing and traveling. This rate,
Sheriff Tuck declares, immediately
becomes delinquent and if not immediately paid the defaulter, each
ratepayer in the city possibly, will
have his property seized and sold to
satisfy the alloted portion of the judgment assessed. Sheriff Tuck declares
he has no option and that if the city
council will not pay he will have to
proceed v. ith the stern measures outlined. This is not the worst of the
matter, The present amount of the
debt, $5(10, is but a portion of a larger debt of $2,000 for which notes
have been given by the municipality
of Slocan City, and which are now
falling due one after another.
The first note went by default and
judgment was given also by default,
when proceedings were consequently
taken. The suit was instituted by
C. E. Siiiithoi'ingale to lecover for expenses incurred by him in printing a
municipal delinquent tax list some
two years ago in his paper, the Slocan
Drill of Slocan City, now defunct.
The tax list was given to Editor
Smitheringale by City Clerk Smitheringale and as the two offices were
united in one person the council
never disputed the amount but merely
remarked that it could not be paid.
After mouths of delinquency the debt
was arranged by notes being givon for
the amount and when the first of
these notes became due last spring it
was dishonored, hence the present
proceedings and the liklihood ot
others.
Mayor MacNeish has paid a visit to
Mount Pleasant, Vancouver, in th.
hope of. softening the heart of the
newspaper' man but told tbe sheriff
that there was no response to his
plaints. When the sheriff arrived
the city of Slocan he was confronted
by the assertion that mayor and coun
cil had resigned and that the city
clerk, Norman Morrison, had also resigned. However, the sheriff declares
that the mayor cannot resign except
to his successor and hence served his
papers at the residence of Mr. Morrison, that gentleman carefully keeping
out of sight. If the matter is not
compromised, Slocan City will be in
hard straits indeed as its yearly re
venue is said to be less than the
amount claimed with an assessment
roll which at present is very small
The sheriff declares he will strike ti
rate-*<»f any number of mills on the
dollar so as to get sufficient to cover
the present installment of the debt,
basing bis amount on the assessment
roll of the city.
When the councillors heard of the
mayor's action, they, too, prepared
their resignation. But they are still
undelivered for there appears to be no
one authorized to accept them. A
mayor may resign to the council or
the council to the mayor, but when
both go out—well, the municipal act
never expected that any Canadian
city would come to that.
Here the matter rests. The exchequer is empty; the council and mayor
are in body in office, in mind out of
it; and Sheriff Tuck is waiting for the
4th of September.
Then the thirty days shall have expired, the time the statute gives a city
or town to satisfy an execution against
it.

All railroads entering Spokane announce that rates for the Spokane Interstate fair, which opens Monday,
September 24, will be good going to
Spokano on Sunday, the day beforo,
..nd on every day until the middle of
the second week of the fair. The
railroads have given a one and one
third rate good from all parts of the
Spokane territory. On the Great
Northern these rates are good between
Leavenworth an,, Troy, on the S. F.
ifc N. and all its branches and connections, and on the Fernio branch,
Friday was payday for the big
mines in the Boundary, for the
month of July, the amount distributed at the several mines and to be
paid a few days later by the railway
companies hauling the ore and mining supplies, and products of smelters, being the same as last month,
namely, $200,000. Approximately,
the Boundary pay for July wns distributed as follows:
Granby Consolidated  $70,000
B. C. Copper    35,000
Dominion Copper Co     35,000
Smaller mines     20,i)00
C.P.R. and G.N. r'y men....    40,000
Total July pay 8200,000
The output of the mines of the
Bdundary district for the month of
July was considerably smaller than
for the month of June—by about
20,000 tons. There was no smelting
at the Si. C. Copper company's smelter at Greenwood, and the furnaces
at the Granby sre still undergoing the
process of rebuilding and enlargement, which cuts down the tonnage
appreciably. But additional men were
employed in enlargements. While in
June over 100,000 tons of ore were
mined and smelted in the district, the
July story shows but little over 83,-
000 tons for an output, which is the
smallest month thus far this year.
After another month or two, however,
there will be a big jump in the monthly output, as by that time some of the
new furnaces will be starting operations, and long before cold weather
sets ic again, the output should be at
least 150,000 tons monthly, or more,
or at the rate of 5,000 tons daily.
Following are the approximate figures of the output of the various mines
for June:
Minn Twin
Granby mines 00,561

TUESDAY, AUGUST. 14, 1903
On the first page of this issue of The
Sun we print a lengthy account of the
financial plight of Slocan City, The
object lesson we wish to convey is to
show the dangers attendant upon
municipalities plunging too deeply
into debt. In a couple of weeks from
now the taxpayers of Grand Forks
will be called upon to decide whether
they wish to increase the bonded indebtedness of the city by some four or
five thousand dollars for the construction of the Fourth street traffic bridge.
While public/opinion is almost unam
inous in favor of the bridge being
built, there is a strong objection to the
council issuing any more debentures,
which would in all probability have to
be sold at 85 cents on the dollar.
These people contend that the bridge
, should have been constructed out of
the current year's revenue. And before the debenture by-law comes to a
vote of the people The Sun will en
deavor to show that this course could,
and should, have been pursued. In
the meantime we ask the citizens to
study the sad fate of Slocan City.
In Spokane deaths of infants have
been rather numerous of late, and
the cause assigned is that of parents
feeding them condensed milk, which
brings on cholera infantum. In this
city tliere have been seven deaths
from this disease during the past two
or three weeks. Parents cannot ex
ercise too much care in guarding the
health of their nhildren.
From Willow Creek, Ont., Miss E,
Deigel writes: "A few years ago I
was drenched with rain and got lumbago; it was like a steel rod piercing
my bank. I also had earache and was
just wild with pain. I applied batting soaked with Nerviline to my ear
t.ntl rubbed on Nerviline for my lumbago. That rubbing relieved antl in
a few hours I was well. No other
liniment could do this." It's the penetrating power of Nerviline that
makes it superior to all oeher liniments. Nothing lieats it; 25c at all
dealers.
Poverty is a Crime
According to the evidence given
in London and published in the
Morning Lender oil July 24th, pov
erty is a serious crime in England
and those unfortunate enough to
neeed organized public support are
punished worse than if they were
sont to prison.
Mr. Will Crooks. M. P., and for
eight years chairman of the Poplar
Guardians, said he was born in Poplar nntl lived there nil his life.
"You were born in the workhouse,
weren't you?" asked Mr. Cnrrie
Grant.
"No; but next door to it," was
the reply.
"In 1801, I was earning fid. a
week between school hours. My
father met with a serious accident,
and my mother had to keep him
and seven children. At this time
the Poplar Guardians allowed us five
loaves and 5s. a week. In October,
1861, my father and I were taken
into the workhouse; and every incident there has been burnt into my
brain."
After this came better days.thanks
to hard work; and Crooks became a
power in Poplar, knowing it thoroughly.
"And you now may fairly claim
to have an intimate knowledge of
tbe borough," said Mr. Grant.
"Sometimes I think I know a
little too much," replied Will wilh a
shake of his head.
"What was the state of the workhouse at the time you came on the
board, in 1892?"
"The conditions of things in the
house were almost revolting."
"There were no stores.the inmates
were half-starved, the clothing was
bad, many were without boots to
their feet, and the food was Of the
worst possible description. - It was
almost heartbreaking to go over the
place at this time, to see the tears
and hear the complaints. The inmates would cry, 'poverty is no
crime; but here itis treated ns such.'
"The inmates were frequently in
open revolt, discipline wns unknown,
nnd the frequent expression in the
workhouse was, 'prison is better
than thiB.' On<* day I went into
the house and found two rows of
long seats full of women, some looking sullen and others crying. In
front of them were basins containing
ailed soup. It was simply greasy
water, and they had to wash blankets on that food. Then, many of
these women are continually sent to
prison, for not performing their
tasks."
There are as mnny people in London as there nre in the whole Dominion of Canada and happily, nl
nresent, the same-conditions do not
prevail. It is in our power to pre
vent such a state nf things ever ex-
existing. New Zealand hns n'system
of oltl pens'ons 'ind I here is no reason why Canada, with all her mineral wealth and land, should not sei
aside a portion of thatwhi-h belongs
to the people for the use of the people when they get old. If one aore
out of every thousand acres was al*
loted and subject to the selection by
a committee, which should have
power to select mineral claims nnd
land from lime lo time, thou a large
and ample fund could bo esltiblish-
ed, out of which the government
could pay $2.**il) per week lo every
person upon reaohinu tho age of
fifty-five yenrs. These monies
could be paid at the postoffice and
the claims might he investigated by
a stipendiary hiauistrate.
With the permission of the editor,
I will furnish further detatls of the
administration of the Poor Law in
England and also a scheme for the
carrying out of 'Old Age Pensions'
in Canada. But in order not to
tresspass on too much.space in one
issue, 1 propose submitting the
"copy" in installments.

When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
busi ne ss demands 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.

AS YOU LIKt IT
It is   a   special  wise father that
knows much as his son.
A man who knows says there is no
meal as expensive as a free lunch.
Life is full of trials but the lawyer
confronts them with the smile of a
hero.
A man's idea of practicing economy
is to preach it to his wife three times
a day. .
When a man marries the second
time he generally makes an excuse of
.some kind to hia friends.
Many a man has got freckles on his
reputation by carrying molasses home
in a demijohn.
A man will praise a free lunch of
bologna and liver, and then go home
and growl at a goud dinner.'
It's a shame that some men are not
as smart at 45 as they thought they
were at 25.
It is the height of inbicility for a
m in afflicted with insomnia to marry
a girl who snores.
A woman does not know what an
unprincipled scoundrel she lias married until her husband has run fur a
political office.
A philosopher is a man who tloi s
mit attempt to argue unless he knows
he can knock out his opponent.
A man may not swallow all the
compliments that are handed him, but
he thinks there is some merit in them
all right.
The effeminate corset wearing dude
should be used as a mop to wipe the
p irspit'%tion off the earth.
/ The man with curly hair always
affects to hate it, but devotes himself
to a proper display of .the bangs.
M. Mecklenberg, M, A., the celebrated oculist,optician and eye specialist, will again be at the Yale, Aug.

The Origin of Gall Stones
They are simply dried bile, made
up of crystaline constituents of that
fluid. Very common is this disorder
among merchants, clergenien, shop
girls and those of sedentary habits.
Peevention consists in maintaining
correct action of the liver and bowels,
which is best accomplished by Dr.
Hamilton's Pills. No person usiug
this medicine need fear gallstones.nor
need they ever be billious. Sound
digestion, good appetite, a clear color

are the safest and best for family use.
