Masque Carnival Attracts a
Big Crowd and ProVes a
Success
Everybody tbat could possibly
get away took in the excursion to
Phoenix thin evening, to attend tbe
opening ball in tbe new Miners'
hall, and to witness the hockey
match between tbe Phoenix and
Grand Forks teams. A special train
left the C.P.R. station at 6 p.m., and
returning will leavePhOenix at 2 a.m.
A telephone message reached tbe
city late this evening stating that
tbe' excursion train had been, derailed, and tbat a train had to be
despatched from Phoenix to take
the party to its destination, which
was not reached until about 9 p.m.
No one was injured.
The masque carnival at the skating rink Thursday evening was well
attended, and many beautiful costumes were in evidence. Miss Effie
Ross won tbe lady's prize, and N.
P. Nelson the gentleman's; Mona
Henderson captured the girl's prize,
and Floyd Hindman the boy's.
Tbe hockey match between the
married and single men was won
by the latter.' The event is reported
to have been a big financial success.
There is still considerable uncertainty regarding the composition ot
the aldermanie tickets in the two
wards. In the East ward Frank
Hartinger, Joe Manly, John Temple,
R. Gaw, Fred Cooper, Chas. Brown,
and others too numgrous to mention,
are in the field, and in the West ward
Lindsey Crossen, E. Spraggett, B. Lequime and A. L. Clements are named
as the candidates.
Aid. Brown's Graveyard By-
Law Goes Through the   ;
Committe Stage
A deal is said to be pending for
the Pathfinder mine, North Fork
of Kettle river, on a basis of one
million dollars.
A report comes from Midway that
the finances of the Midway k Vernon
railway are being straightened out,
and that work will be resumed soon.
The money, it is said, is daily expected
from New York, and all outstanding
time cheques will be lifted and construction resumed immediately.
H. M. Adams, assistant traffic
manager, and S. Q. Yerkes, assistant
general passenger agent of the Great
Northern, from Seattle, were 'in the
city last Tuesday, enroute on a tour
of inspection. After visiting the
Granby smelter, they resumed their
journey. They traveled in tbeir
private coach.
There is already a sufficient quanti
ty of snow in this vicinity to keep the
sleigh bells tingling for an indefinite
period.
A new steam hammer is being installed at the Granby machine shop.
It is the largest piece of machinery
of its kind ever brought to the
Broundary country.
Thomas Draper, representing the
Nelson Daily News, is spending
three or four days in the city this
week on business in connection with
the News.
Joseph L. Manly is said to be an
aldermanic candidate.
Mr. and Mrs. B. Lequime left last
Tuesday for Kelowna, where they
will visit friends for a couple of
weeks.

put in between their jstore the new

Mayor Hammar will address tho
electors in the Grand Forks opera
house next Wednesday evening. The
opposition mayoralty candidate and
aldermanic candidates are invited, and
The speech from the throne at the
opening of the provincial legislature
on the 1 ith inst. is a long one, but it
does »ot contain anything of special
interest. No hint ii given as Io the
nature of the gove-mment's railway
polioy, if, they have one, though it
might be inferred from a reference to
the subject of land grants and subsidies, that the government have some
idea of resorting to that method of
assistance to railway construction
again. In sact, very little is told
the government's plans. Amendments
to the Municipal Clauses Act, the
Game Act, and the Land Acts are
promised, and it is suggested that
more liberal appropriali ins for public
works will be provided in the estimates. •
SPECIAL ISSUES
The annual mining number of the
Nelson Daily News, issued on the
let inst., is the most complete and
comprehensive guide to the mineral
resources and smelting industry of
British Columbia ever published in
the province. 'One pleasing feature
about the number is, that it is not
an advertising fake—being unlike
the majority of special issues in this
resnect. The number is replete
with reliable information concerning the mines and smelters of southern British Columbia. And the
newB given is thoroughly trustworthy—ah invaluable item. No
heitcr statement of our resources
could be gent to your eastern friend.
The special' holiday number of the
Phoenix Pioneer surpasses all the
previous efforts of its proprietor.
The isBue completely covers the
Boundary section. Tne statistical
matter cannot fail to convince the
outside world that wc possess the
premier mining district of the
province. The illustrations, although a number of tbem have previously done service, are numerous
and well printed.

THE ODDFELLOWS
Held Double Installations at
Phoenix and Greenwood
This Week
An adjourned meeting of the city
council was held in the council
chamber Wednesday evening,
Mayor Ilainmar, Aid. Clements,
Henniger and Hutton being present.
Very little business was transacted. A resolution was passed
authorizing the placing of $1000
more insurance on the pumping station at the lowest rate obtainable,
and a few accounts were ordered
paid.
The auditor's financial statement,
which showed the city to be in better condition than it hits ever been,
was read, and it was ordered printed.
Aid. Clements and Brown, who have
been talking economy to the gallery
for the past twelve months, objected
to authorizing the clerk to call
for tenders for the printing of
the same, and their wish to give the
work to the Gazette at whatever
price it might wish to charge finally
prevailed.
Rubaiyat of Aid. Brown
I   am an alderman—my name 'tis
Brown—   '
And I would like to wear the city's
crown;
But on competition   I    always
frown,
And fear under the ballots I should
drown.

Mr. Naden Presented With a
Grand's Collar and
Jewel
The installation of officers of the
three lodges of Odd Fellows from
Grand Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood took place in the two latter
cities last Monday and Tuesday
nights.
Monday evening a double installation was neld in the lodge hall,
Phoenix, of officers of Gateway
Lodge No. 45 of this city and Snow-
shoe Lodge No. 46 of Phoenix, the
installing officers being District
Deputy Grand Master Isaac A. Dinsmore, of this city, assisted by the
following grand officers: Grand
marshal, D. Whiteside; grand warden, A. L. Clements; grand recording secretary, E. Spraggett; grand
treasurer, Fred Clark; grand permanent secretary, Fred Kennedy; grand
guardian, N. Taylor, all of this city.
The Gateway lodge officers installed were: Noble grand, Geo,
Rutherford; vice grand, Alex Hall;
recording secretary, W. R. Dewdney; permanent secretary, W. D.
Lawson; treasurer, R. Frache.
Tuesday evening the same ten or
a dozen Odd Fellows from this city,
reinforced by as many more of tbe
order from Phoenix, went to Greenwood for installation purposes, tbe
following being the grand officers in
charge there: Grand master, I. A.
Dinsmore; grand marshal, Fred
i .ooper; grand warden, W. F. Fleming; grand recording secretary, E.
Spraggett; grand treasurer, Geo. R.
Mead; grand guardian, Thomas

After the installations in both
Phoenix and Greenwood, the visitors were served with a bountiful
supper, afoer which speeches were
in onler, and they were much enjoyed. At the Greenwood spread
Duncan Ross, M.P., presided, and
one of the features of the evening
was the presentation to George R.
Naden by I. A. Dinsmore, on behalf
of the officers and members of Boundary Valley lodge, the oldest one in
Ihe Boundary, of a beautiful past
grand's collar and jewel, in token of
their appreciation of his services to
the lodge. Mr. Naden responded in
a fitting manner.
Bobby Burns' birthday anniversary will soon be here, but up to thc
present the local Scotchmen have

Sprained Her Ankle
"I slipped on an icy step and
sprained my ankle very badly," writes
Miss Minnie liurgoyne of Glenwotsl.
"It swelled to a tremendous size and
caused intense pain. I applied Poison's
Nerviline and got prompt relief; the
swelling was reduced, and before long
I was able to use my foot." For
sprains, swellings and muscular pains
Nerviline is the one sure remedy.
Strong, penetrating, swift to destroy
pain—that's Poison's Nerviline. Fifty
years in use. (51j? -Ebftttttg £>*un

Even if Mr. Hutton had the time
at his disposal, itis to be doubted if
his influence would he ns great as
Mayor Hammar's in the matters of
inducing   the  Great    Northern   to
make  Grand Forks   t    divisional
point,the securing of common freight
rates  for the city, and a  government for the Fourth street  bridge.
Mr. Hiimniur is at the head of  a
large nnd successful business firm,
and   railway and governmene officials would be more apt to listen to
his requests than if they came from
an employee of the Granby smelter.
We make this statement with  due
- respect to  the workingman.    But
the upbuilding of a young city is at
best  but   a   cold-blooded  business
proposition.    Sentiment should  be
laid aside, and the best interests of
the city alone considered.    A   false
step  now  may  retard the   city's
growth for years.
' The remuneration of our mayor
and aldermen has been a vexed and
embarrassing question in civic affairs for the past three or four years.
Mayor Hammar's proposition to
submit the matter to a vote of the
people is therefore both welcome
and opportune..
corporation limits, where it is not
wanted by one-half of the ratepayers
of the city.
When we stated that Aid. Brown's
labors in the council had consisted
entirely of perfecting the graveyard
by-law, the fact that he had also
secured a two years' contract for
power and light for his own firm
had completely slipped our memory.
Neither Aid. Brown nor Aid.
Clements had the courage to vote on
the salary by-law until they were
forced to. ,
As neither the Great Northern
nor the Kettle Valley line have representatives in the city council,
there is no apparent reason why the
Canadian Pacific should not be
reduced to the same level.
The Sun pays rates, taxes and
license fees, and as it has worked up
an out-of-town business by which it
is alone able to maintain itself, it is
entitled to justice. It does uot care
a picayune for sympathy, and
spurns charity. But it has more
at stake in the present and future
prosperity of Grand Forks than
either Aid. Brown or Aid. Clements.
The people always have their little troubles that they imagine will
gladden the mayor's heart. It would
be too bad if they should have to
walk away up to the smelter to tell
them after election day.
The third-term argument has
fallen flat. It has been ascertained
that Carter H. Harrison, the best
mayor Chicago ever had, has been
cbier executive of that city for eight
vears.
AID. BROWN AND  CLEMENTS
In their eagerness to subsidize a
paper at the ratepayers' expense,
Aid. Brown and Aid Clements, at
the council meeting last Wednesday,
refused to allow the clerk to ask for
tenders for the publication of the
city's annaal financial statement,
although both the local papers could
have rendered equal service, ns The
Sun is at all times stands ready to
guarantee equally as large, if not
larger, circulation among the ratepayers ns its contemporary. The
work was therefore given to the
Gazette at whatever price it might
see fit to charge, which will un
doubtedly he a trifle more thnn it
cost the city to have it printed in
■ both papers last year.   .
For the benefit of Aid. Brown,
who wns so liberal with his
dispnrnging remarks concerning
this paper, we wish to state thnt
The Sun compares as favorably with
metropolitan journals as his one-
horse concern outside the city
limits compares with the big city
foundries, although Mr. Brown may
have a few more boys on his payroll than The Snn.
After twelve months of hard labor, Aid. Brown hns nt last completed his graveyard by-law. But
thc cemetery still remains inside the
[MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS

If you knew how bad for health
constipation is you would be more

Rapid ▼oik,
I often wonder aa I alt
And listen to their chatter
Ho.w women ever manage It,
Amid the clang and clatter
To ever know a word that'a passed,
For each one talks so hard and fast
One woman aays she heard a sont.
That atmpl) la divine;
Another nods and comes along
With aome new place to dine,
While two or three Just talk away
Aa If It were their busy day.
They talk of fashions, clubs and plays.
Their children and their husbands, too.
And brag about the little ways
They have ot getting something new.
Each woman chatters at her will
And by no chance la ever still.
Xt doesn't' seem that one can know
A word another woman aaid,
Becauae auch atreama of language flow
From each enthusiastic head.
To hear them makes one stand aghast
How do they learn to talk so fast?
Heavy teaming of all kinds   done

There ia a young man here so careful that in calling on his girl he always
knocks, for fear 1 hat if he came with
ring she might consider it a proposal.
The rich man has hiB mug at tho
barber shop and the poor man takes

When the economical wife casts her
bread upon the waters the result is a
bread pudding.
It takes a featherweight wife to
make the heavyweight husband shake
in his boots.
This would be by far a better world
if more people took their own advice.
- It is not always the girl with the
biggest feet who wears the largest
shoes.

Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the
on y twice-tvweek paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned

politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a com on of nerchants
to be u-edusa. ..ns of lauding their own wares, to the
detriment of their rivals.
Tiik Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is print-

have to consult half-a-dozen

Everybody in Orand Forks
reads The Sun twice a week.
' Jts out-of-town circulation is
