One of the Ottawa Alleged
Scandals Ends in a
Fiasco
No Government Officers Profited by the Outfitting of
the Steamer
The majority and minority reports
of the special committee appointed to
inquire into the alleged "Arctic"
scandal have been submitted tu parliament. The brief telegraphic summaries of these reports already published
are now supplemented by more detailed statements.
The majority reports sets forth: (1)
That in the year 190-1 tho dominion
government steamer Arctic, was provisioned and outfitted for 40 men for
1200 days, for a voyage to explore
and patrol the Hudson bay and the
islands and waters north thereof and
and to enforce and administer the
laws of Canada therein.
, (2) That in view of the contemplated expedition of over three years,
and of the hardships and contingencies
naturally attendant upon such a voyage, and the impossibility of replenishing stores, the quantity and variety of
stores, merchandise, supplies and provisions were reasonable and [necessary
and were of the best quality.
(3) Thnt all the stores, merchandise,
supplies and provisions purchased by
the department of marine and fisheries for tho said steamer and for the
purpose of said expedition into said
waters were placed on board, and that
the said steamer was capable of carrying, holding and accommodating, and
did carry, hold and accommodate all
the said storeB, merchandise, supplies
and provisions, in addition to and exclusive of any stores oarried for and
on account of the Northwest mounted
police service.
(4) No part or portion of the said
stores, merchandise, supplies and provisions were in whole or in part improperly diverted for other uses than
originally contemplated, or for the
profit of any person or persons.
(5) That fair and reasonable prices
were paid for the said stores, merchandise, supplies and provisions,with
the exception of a quantity of tobacco
from G. Eli Amyot et Fils, Quebec,
the particulars of which areas follows:
"805 lbs. smoking tobacco at 96cents;
200 lbs. chewing tobacco at 78 cents."
In addition to the prices charged and
paid for said 1005 pounds of tobacco
as above .stated, tho venders charged
the department of marine and fisheries
with tho excise tax theron of 39 cent-i
per pound amounting to $391.95.
The amount paid for the said two
quantities of tobacco, the committee
finds to be unfair and unreasonable.
(6) That no otficers, agents or servants of the department of marine
and fisheries unjustly, unlawfully, or
coruptly profited in connection with
the purchase or disposition of any of
stores, merchandise, supplies and provisions purchased and placed on board
the said steamer Arctic.
(7) That all stores, merchandise,
supplies and provisions not consumed
during the voyage of the expedition of
the said steamer Arctic as heretofore
set forth, after making due allowance
for depreciation iu quantities by reason of natural and unavoidable causes,
are now in possession of ami uuder
the control of the department of mu
rise and fisheries.
(8) That the sum of $45.30, being
the freight charges from Montreal to
Quebec on a quantity of bovril and
peiiiinican, purchased from the Bovril
Co., Ltd., of Montreal, was paid by
the agent of the department of marine
and fisheries, resident at Quebec, to
the Intercolonial railway and subsequently by mistake and without
knowledge of the prior payment the
same amount und charge was again
paid to the Bovril company by the
marine ane fisheries department, which
amount during tho progress of the
committee investigation was refunded
to the niaries department by the Bovril coinpiiiiy. The above report was
adopterl by four to three.
The minority report, or properly
speaking, the amendment which was
defeated, sets forth that no tenders
were called for the goods and that
the requisitions of Captain Bernier
were for ujtrip to the north pol", yet
they were wantonly increased by the
officials of the marine department beyond the requirements and currying
capacity of the Arctic. The provisions, they say, could not have been
got on board had they been stowed in
a way that would not have endangered those on board.
The inaccurate and misleading
statements furnished by the marine
and fisheries department made it, they
say, impossible to say as to the disposition of the supplies. Hordes of Es
quimuux were fed for six or seven
months. The fortnightly dance was
no justification for cigars and cigar-/
ettes fur the officers of the Northwest
Mounted Police. There was a doubt
about some of the Bovril being received. The only figures given are those
in reference to the tobacco. In conclusion they complain that some of
the goods were purchased on the recommendation of members of parliament.
County Court
Hi" honor Judge Clement held a
sitting of the county court at the court
house at 10:30 yesterday morning,
when the following cases came up for
hearing:
Bex vs. Junes; appeal from decision
of stipendiary magistrate. E. Miller,
counsel for the crown, stated that he
had used every endeavor to get the
stenographor's notes of the preliminary trial transcribed, but had failed
to do so. He therefore aske<l for an
ttejournment of the case. D. Whiteside, for appellant, said they were
ready to proceed with the case. His
honor adjourned the case until the (ith
day of August, at 10:30 in the mi r i-
ing.
W. H. Brooks vs. Max Kuntz; 840
amlyttists awarded plaintiff. A. C.
Sutton for plaintiff; D. Whiteside for
deftnllant.
Robert Dunnigan, who has been
in the Boundary more than twelve
years, died last week at the Greon-
wood hospital at the age of fiO years.
He was a native of Ireland, and
among other claims he whb interested in was the C. O. D., in Dead-
wood camp, one of the Sunset group,
which he sold to the Montreal &
Boston years ago.
The first meal at the Hotel Valhalla was served at 6 o'clock this

NEWS OF THE CITY
Report That Great Northern
Will Soon Start Grading
on North Fork
Windsor Increases Its Capacity by Leasing the Fisher
Building
There has been a persistant rumor
in circulation the past two days to
the effect that woi'k on the North
Fork branch of the Great Northern
between this city and the Pathfinder
mine is to be started this week. Up
to the present time, however, The
Sun has been unable to find an official
uf the road who is willing to either
confirm or deny the report.
That transient travel is daily becoming heavier is amply evidenced by
the fact that this week the Windsor
people secured a lease on the Fisher
building, on Bridge street. This block
contains 24 rooms, which will be converted into sleeping apartments. The
contract for kalsomining und decorating the interior has already been let
to Sam Horner. The building is
centrally located, and its acquisition
by the Windsor will give it a capacity
of 48 rooms, making if the second
largest hotel in the city. The Windsor was opened only a couple of weeks
ago,and its sudden bound to popularity
indicates that it is under the management of a practical hotel man, The
deal fur the Fisher building was negotiated by A. Erskine Smith k Co.
Two cars of structural steel arrived
in the city last Saturday for the Granby company. It will be used in re-
roofing the smelter building, and will
be nianufactared into the desired
shape at the Messrs. McDonalds' steel
works.
Norman McLellan, formerly a business man of the city, was a Grand
Forks visitor last Saturday and Sunday. Mr. McLellan was on his wuy
from Edmonton to the coast, where,
with his family, he will sperd the
balance uf the summer. They will return to this city next fall.
The trial of L. Canty, accused uf
being implicated in a burglary at the
Winnipeg hotel a couple of weeks
ago, came up befuro Police Magistrate
Cochrane at 10 o'clook ihis morning.
Owing tu the disappearance uf the
chief witness for tlio prosecution, the
case uts remanded until the Kith
inst., the prisoner being released on
his own recognizance.
Henry Miller, employed in Fisher's
camp on the kettle Valley line construction work, died in the railway
hospital Friday morning of typhoid
fever, and wus buried on Saturday.
Miller was a native of Germany, lie
had only been employed on the road
for a couple of days, and was penniless and almost friendless.
A cloudburst which did considerable damage occurred at Gilpin last
Friday. A great deal of damage
was done to the roadbeds of both the
Great Northern and Canadian Pacific railways, and the wagon road
has been rendered impassable.   Thc
water came down in a solid sheet,
and it is said that gullies twenty
feet deep were formed. The railway
tracks were covered with earth and
debris for a considerable distance.
No damage to crops, however, has
been reported.
Fred Clark and bride have returned
to the city from their wedding tour
to the coast cities.
Wm. Oliver and wife, of Spokane,
have rented rooms in the Hunter-
Kendrick building, Mr. Oliver having taken a position at the City
Barber Shop.
Greenwood's entire recent issue of
§10,000 debentures, for the enlargement of the waterworks system, have
been disposed of at a good figure.
The last car of ore shipped from
the Skylark netted the company
over $5,000. It gave returns of
8 Hi 2 per ton.
Active surface operations at the
sitcol the new $100,0u0 shaft at the
Granby mines in Phoenix are now
under way.
N, T. Johnson, formerly proprietor of the Grand Central hotel, has
returned from a two months' visit to
Hot Springs, Ark.
Mrs. Bovee, dancing, instructor,
will give a grand ball tomorrow
night, July 11th, at the opera house.
Music will be furnished by the Manly
orchestra.    Supper at the Windsor.
When people became too modest
to carry beer from the brewery to
their residences, they should install
a six-inch beer pipe between the
two points. This system would
defy detection, as well as give impetus to the plumbing trade.
Don't forget the garden pany at
the rectory next Thursday evening.
Fair Attraction at Spokane
Nothing seen at last year's Interstate fair at Spokane was more interesting or more exciting, nothing drew
more people to the exposition grounds,
than the relay race which lasted six
days. This year the management of
the Spokane fair has decided to make
this slill more attractive and will continue the race for 10 days, beginning
September 26, the third day of the
fair, and continuing each day except
Sunday until the close. Premiums
huve been increased frnm $1000 last
year to $1500,and it is supposed there
will be many entries drawn by this
attractive contest. Lust year there
wus a great rivalry between Indian
and white riders, and lint for the time
lost hy one of'the Indians the first
day, he would probably have won the
Contest. He learned the trick nf
saddling and unsaddling quickly after
the first day, and did better -time
from then on than did any of the
white men. If these Indians [enter
again this year, many people believe
there is not a cowboy or other horseman in the Northwest iVho can beat
them. Each entrymun must furnish
his own horses, having in reserve as
many as ho chooses. He rides two
miles each day, changing burses und
saddles at the end of euch half mile.
This is done in front uf the grand
stand and makes the contest one of
great excitement. Nut only must the
winner be it good rider and have good
horses, but he must be quick at changing saddles, and nut a second can be
lost in mounting und dismounting.
English Capitalists Secure a
Well Known North Fork
Property
Work to Be Carried on Continuously During Life
of Bond
On Suturday last the White Bear
group of five claims, in Franklin camp,
was bonded to an English syndicate
for $50,000. Cash payments are td
be made during the life of the bond,
which extends over a period of 18
months, and development work is to
be prosecuted continuously. The
group, which is a copper proposition,
consists of the White Bear, Black
Bear, Big Cub, Little Cub and Lucky
Jack. The property if owned by G.
M. Fripp, H. C. Kerman, H. Watlin
and a number of other Grand Forks
people. The bonding of this group
will undoubtedly give an impetus to
the development of other properties
in this the premier camp of the North
Fork country.
Prospectors, business people and
fortune hunters are still trekmg to
the upper North Fork country, and
two stages per day for Franklin has
become quite a common occurance
of late. This morning the amount
of express matter on hand, and the
number of passengers booked, made
it necessary to send out two rigs,
uud both of them were well filled.
A meeting of the shareholders of
the Denora Mines, Ltd., was held
last week at Rossland, with C. E. Gil-
len, presiding, and Smith Curtis secretary. The sale of the Oro Denoro
mine to the B. C. Copper company for
15,000 shares of that company was
unanimously ratified. The Denora
.Mines, Ltd., is the owner of other
mining porperty.
G. B. Dennis, of Spokane, who is
acting for u strong New York syndicate, und on whose behalf J. L. Martin recently bunded the Marshall
Monte and Forty groups in Phoenix
camp, will arrive there shortly with
some eastern engineers to look over
the property and decide where to be-
gin the diamond drilling that has
been determined upon.
A meeting of the lied Bock, Lulu,
Bald Eagle and War liugle companies
was scheduled to be held at Slier-
briinke, Que., on June Kith, to authorize selling the properties to the newly organized I'hoenix Amalgamated
Copper mines Ltd. On June 27th
another meeting was to he held to
ratify tho proceedings of the previous
meeting. This is all incident and necessary for the getting of the affairs of
the Phoenix Amalgamated in shape
to begin operations.
It is claimed that the recent turnover of the Oro Denoro mine to the
British Columbia Copper company
was on the basis of $125,000 for the
property. Some 15,500 shares uf
the British Columbia Copper were
exchanged at the market at about
J8.00.

11 the evidence, placed before the
committee of the House of Common*) was not sufficient to effectively
dissipate one of the scandals unearthed by a too vigilant o'pposition,
the testimony of Premier Scott of
Saskatchewan ought to be convincing as proceeding from a gentle-
man having special knowledge of
the matter dealt with. Speaking at
the banquet tendered' Mr. Brodeur
in Montreal, Mr. Scott snid: "With
regard to some ot these quest ions
which have heen talked about at
Ottawa this year, I have either no
knowledgeorvery incomplete knowledge. But there is one of them
about which I have knowledge—
namely the Saskatcheway Valley
Land Coinpany transaction. 1 knew
the tract of land in which lies the
area sold to the company before the
transaction, and I know the same
tract of land now. For nearly twen-
have lived at Regina,
of the
that this land wis not worthless.
They would buy from the railway
the land grant which the railway
had until then refused to accept.and
they would agree to put a minimum
of thirty-two settlers in each township if the government would sell tn
them at SI per acre an'area of 250,-
000acres in the heart of this so-called worthless tract.
"It was done. What result? The
reproach is removed. Desolation no
lunger. Thriving settlements all
along tho roud. A dozen busy towns,
where in 1002, after the railway bad
been operating a dozen years, there
was nobody. Our Conservative
friends  say   that this change spells
scandal. Well, Bpeakihg for Saskatchewan, 1 say let us have more
scandal and less statesmanship, It
is this kind of scandal which has
doubled Canada's' trade and revenues
these lust ten years. Only give us
plenty of the same sort of scandal
and Mr. Fielding need have no f cur us
to revenues. These have grown from
$35,000,000 when he became finance
minister to nearly $80,000,000 now.
Give us a few more scandals of the
kind I have decrihed nnd in another
dozen year Canada will find her
trade again doubled and her revenues still multiplying."

The chairman of the Westbury,
(Wilts) District Council told the
members that the dust raised by motors did one good thing for the farm
ei's—It kills the flies on the turnips—
"It might be an advantage to to the
turnips,"' retorted a member, "but it
spoils the grass und lu.y crop."

Pains About the Hips
ty years
which is within fifty miles
tract. Through that tract of land i
railroad was built in 1890 at the in
stance of the Conservative govern
ment of that day. The road runs
from Regina to Prince Albert,roundly 250 miles. Its construction cost
roundly $2,750,000, and its construction was accomplished by the
sale of bunds in England to the
amount of $3,750,000. That i.s
worthy of note. From bonds $3,-
750,000 was raised to cover Ihe cost
ul a road which cost only $2,750,-
000. Note further that the Conservative government to aid the road
guaranteed cash payments to the
coinpany amounting to $1,1100,000,
and in addition voted 1,(100,000
acres of land. So the road was built
and a sort of railway service was
given over it. Twelve years later,
in 1002, two trains a week each
way were running between Regina
and Prince Albert, 250 miles, and
over 145 miles ol that distance—the
entire way between the Qu'Appelle
valley and the south branch of the
Saskatchewan river, where the rail
way crossed it at Saskatoon, 1*15
miles—there was not one single city
—not one single town, not even one
single village. On that part of the
railway there was not one agent or
operator. Xo business, no settlements, no settlers, nothing but an
appearance of desolation.
"That was the condition all the
way frnm Lumsden, in Qu'Appelle
valley, to Saskatoon, on the Saskatchewan river, 145 miles. Why?
Because everybody believed that the
land was worthless. Why did they
believe so? Mainly because the railway coinpany declared the land to
be bud. A patriotic railway company to declare that thc territory
through which its own road ran was
lind and worthless! Well, such was
the condition of affairs brought
about by Conservative statesmanship, which we are culled upon to
admire. The present Liberal government in 1902, having failed from
189G to 1902 to induce one single
settler to locate in that area because
of its bad name, accepted a proposal
made by certain land speculators
known as the Saskatchewan Valley
Land Company, who came and said
It is a common complaint with women.    The right treatment  is Nervi-
which penetrates to  the seat  of
line
the pair, immediately. Nerviline
warms and soothes the affected parts,
draws out the irritation aud pain, al-
luws the  patient ease after one  rub"
hing. No liniment so economic und
siife. Nearly fifty years in use, the
demand immensely greater every duy!
Nerviline must be good.

And now some one comes along

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
business de-
mands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we tlo—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stuck and workmanship are of tiie
beat. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
No dear Susan, the man who wrote
•'In the Good Old Summer Time" is still
alive. We can't account for it. The
writer of "In the Shade of the Old Apple
Tree" is no kin of his; although we've
heard him say "He's Me Pal," and
"Let Me write What I Never Dared to
Tell.''    Yes, it's too bad.
TO   THE POLITICIAN—WITH   VARIATIONS
Would you care if we should beat you
When election comes around?
Would you care if we should treat yuu
To the tune "I've lost the town?"
Would you care, now tell us truly,
If we beat you fair and square?
Wipe your teal's away and tell us
Would you care!
