Fourth Year-No. 78
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, July 28, 1905
Issued Twice a Week
Great  Northern   Will   Rush
Construction West of
Midway
Steel on Curlew-Midway Road
to Laid Within a Fortnight
Patrick Welch, the railway contractor, passed through the city last
Wednesday enroute to Midway. Mr.
Welch has been awarded tbe contract for grading 14 mile* of the V.,
V. & E. westward of Midway, and
went to ihat town for the purpose of
making arrangement*) foi/ the commencement of work on hie contract.
It is expected that other contracts
for work between Midway and Oroville will be let in the course of the
next week or two. Several contracting firms, including Porter Bros., of
Spokane, have outfits ready to take
the field at short notice.
The question of building from
Midway or Republic has been in
issue for several months. The C.P.R.
blocked activity for Beveral months
by bitterly opposing the V., V.
K.'s application for a renewal of its
charter to build in British Colum-
bia. The contest was stubbornly
waged before 'he railway committee
of the house of commons, victory
finally perching on the banners of
the Great Northern interests. Ad
ditional delay was encountered because of the discovery that V., V. <fe
E.' surveys covered in part lines run
by the C.P.R., when the latter sys-
tern contemplated building into the
Similkameen frjm its 'Midway ter
minal years ago. The latter difficulty was apparently overcome with
out much trouble.
From Midway the V., V. & E. will
run westward to Molson, Wash. Both
points are on the international boundary line, but the V., V. & E. will
swing northward in a broad curve
to avoid natural obstacles that pro-
vent its running due west. The distance from Midway to Molson is 31
' miles, and it is the first 14 miles of
this section that have been let to
Mr. Welch.
From Molson to Oroville the line
swings approximately southwest for
about 20 miles. This| section will
present the most interesting engineering obstacles on the entire road,
inasmuch as Molson is some 181)0
to 200 feet higher than Oroville.
Contractors who have seen profile
plans of the work state that the
road will be carried throughout the
Molson-Orovllle section on a supported grade without switchbacks.
Oroville is located at the mouth of
the Similkameen river, and thence
the V., V., & E. runs north on both
banks of the Siinilkameen to the international line. The subsequent
route is not definitely located, or if
located the route has not been announced. Princeton, the business
centre of the Similkameen district,
is presumed to be the present objective point of the road.
Last summer fourteen miles of
grade were bnilf connecting Curlew
and Midway, and steel is to be laid
on this section immediately. Nine
miles of steel have already been de-
. livered at Curlew, and the track is to
be completed at once to facilitate
construction west of Midway.
Work is also under way on the
grade between Oroville and the international boundary line. Ahout
800 men are now engaged on this
section.
L. E. Shields)'of Sims & Shields,
general contractors for the Great
Northern, in discussing the V., V. &
E. route recently, said: "The Midway route is 45 miles long, with 2|
per cent grades for 17 miles eastward
from Oroville. As for the final route
of the road into the Similkameen, I
understand that it is being held in
abeyance until a further estimation
of the resources—principally mineral—can be made. If the road
follows the Similkameen river to
Princeton, it would probably strike
the Fraser river near Hope, though
that is a matter for the future to disclose.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
J. H. Hodson Will Re-Open His
General Store in the
West End
A party of seven Great Northern
contractors, including Patrick Welch,
put in the day last Wednesday looking over the grade between Curlew
and Midway, preparatory to the beginning of tracklaying on that section.
In the evening the purty went over to
Greenwood. The contractors now
have about 80 horses in Midway. Laborers are arriving in numbers. It is
taken for granted that it is the intention of the company to rush the work
on this branch. The distance is short
and there are no difficulties to be
overcome. The prediction made last
week that the steel would be laid within a fortnight seems likely to be verified.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The Great Northern passenger train
has fallen a victim to the habit of arriving late, doubtless owing to the excessive heat at present prevailing.
Joseph Ingram, of Phoenix, passed
the high school entrance examination
at Nelson with flying colors. Out of
22 that passed the Phoenix boy was
second in the entire list, there being
20 behind him. Phoenix people always stood higher—altitudinariously
speaking—than any one else in the
Boundary.
R. (j. Macpberson, M.P., has returned to Vancouver jroin Ottawa.
He feels certain that it is the intention of Mr. Hill to extend the V.,
V. & E. to Vancouver. He did
not appreciate the talk about patriotism indulged during recent light
of the V., V. & E in the house, as it
is not the lirst time that an American road has conic into the country.
Spokane's Interstate fair is growing
more important to the country each
year. It will not he long until lodges
and other organizations will do as they
do at the big eastern fairs, and put up
permanent headquarters ou the
grounds. The Woman's Christian
Temperance union leads all thi* others
in this enterprise at Spokane. Th's
organization of patriotic and reform
women has decided to erect a neat
little bungalow on the fair grounds, it
will he ready for occupancy before the
fair opens, October 9. It will be a
comfortable rest room for women, and
a place where they can meet and
where they will serve refreshments.
The women deserve a great deal of
credit for their enterprise. Other
organizations will follow their .example.

Death of Mrs. Hector Kelly
Mrs. Hector Kelly, aged 63 years,
died very suddenly at 1 o'clock this
morning from heart failure at the
family residence on Donald street.
On retiring last night Mrs. Kelly was
in the best of health, having done a
big day's work. Shortly before 1
o'clock she was seized with heart
trouble, to which she was subject,
and Dr. Kingston was summoned, but
before he arrived she had expired.
Deceased was one of the pioneers of
this city, having come here eight
years ago with her husband. Prior to
coming to this city they resided in
Manitoba for a number of years. She
was born in King, Ont., G3 years
ago. Her mother and two sisters
are at present residents of that
city. In. Grand Forks her aged husband, an adopted daughter; two
brothers, Peter T. and Neil McCallum; a nephew, J. A. McCallum, and
a cou i i, Donald McCalluin, survive
hei-. A sister of dicas'd resides in
California.
A sail feature of Mrs. Kelly's death
was the fact that her husband wns
away from home at the time it 00*
OUlTad, Mr. Kelly has been up in
Gloucester camp for a few davs, ami
will not learn of his wife's sudden
taking away until some time today on
the arrival of Frank Fritz, who left
this city early this morning with the
sad news. The funeral will be held
from the family residence at 3 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon, provided Mr.
Kelly reaches the ofty by that time.
Deceased was very highly esteemed
hy everybody who kn<*w her. She
was a dutiful wife, a consistent Christian, and her many admirable traits
of character helped to cement the
bonds of friendship of her numerous
friends and acquaintances. The suddenness of her passing away has casta
shadow of gloom over the wide circle
of |icople with whom she came in daily
contact. The sympathy of the community is extended to the grief-stricken
husband and relatives of decascd.
TRIP TOJAWSON
Mining Engineers Were Royally Entertained in Northern Metropolis
Yukon District 4s No Longer a
Poor  Man's   Mining
Country
Mr. A. B. W. Hodges, general superintendent of the Grarfby Consolidated, who returned from histrip with
the American Institute of Mining Engineers to Dawson on Monday evening
last, states that the visitors were royally entertained during their stay iu
the Land of the Midnight Sun. They
were driven along the roads round
the various hills from which they
could get the best views of the country and the mining operations. At a
banquet given the evening before they
left, each visitor was presented with a
souvenir gold pin, formed by a miniature pan, pick and shovel, inscribed
simply "1905." The population of
Dawson at present is estimated to be
3000. Mining operatione have got
down to a stable basis, and economies
are now practiced that would have
been laughed at in the early golden
,days. A local engineer was authority
for the statement that ground paying
30 cents to the yard could not be
treated profitably. Heavy hydraulic
machinery has been installed in many
places, and the scale of the operations has been greatly extended. One
of the largest dredges in the world
is now at work on the Kondike river.
The great difficulty to be overcome is
a lack of water for the working. By
the erosion of ages the water courses
have got down to a very low level, in
many places actually to bed rock. Consequently it is almost impossible to
get water to work the mines on the
higher hills, where much of the mineral wealth is found. A secondary result of this condition is that the Dawson district is no longer a poor man's
country. It requires large capital for
successful mining. Naturally, the
prospectors, who used to make Daw-
sou their home, have drifted away to
Nome, Tauana and other points on the
coast of Alaska.
The  big Hue dust chamber at the
(Iranby smelter is now nearly completed. The new smokestack has
reach: d a height of abuut sixtv feet.
A vast amount of development
work is now being carried on in
Franklin and Gloucester camps, about
■lo miles north of this city, and besides
the McKinley mine, in the former
camp, there are said to be a number
of elaims in the latter camp which are
in a condition to commence shipping
ore as soon as transportation facilities
are afforded.
Frederic Keffer, manager of the B.
C. Copper company, is out in the
iSimilkmameen country, examining the
work being done hy his company on
the Sunset group, Copper mountain,
where a force of some 80 men is at
work under Foreman Morrison, The
company is also looking into one of
the coal measures on Otter Flat, it is
said, and has obtained an option on
some copper claims not far from Keremeos. St ®1tp Bmting £>un

Flit DAY, JULY 28,  1905
Duncan Ross, M.P. for Yale-Cariboo, was in Spokane last night, on his
way from Ottawa to his home in
(ireenwood. Ill an interview in that
city he said the principal features of
the V., V. ifc 13. bill, as passed by parliament, were: First, the bill cures
any defects in the original charter
arising from eonllict betweeu legislation granted by the provincial legislature and that given by the federal
parliament, the main defect- relating
to a clause in the provincial charter
whereby non-compliance with its
terms as to commencing and completing work wiped out the company's
corporate existence. The second principal provision granted authority to
merge the various Hill roads in British Columbia that will eventually
form sections of the V., V. ifc E.
These roads include the Victoria ifc
Sidney line, having 20 miles of road;
t!ie Victoria Terminal ifc Ferry corn-
pan v, operating a ferry from Sidney to
Guichon, near the mouth of the Fraser
river, thence by rail to New Westminster; the New Westminster it
Southern, from Seattle to New Westminster, and the Victoria, New Westminster & Yukon; under which charter the company operates a line from
New Westminster to Vancouver. In
order to avoid natural obstructions to
construction, the company is granted
authority under approval of the government to cross the international
boundary line between the Columbia
and Similkameen rivers, or between
Marcus and Oroville. A clause was inserted to the effect that work must be
commenced at Cloverdale, which is
the eastern terminal of the company's
lines on the west coast of British Columbia, and is located on the New
Westminster Southern, within two
years, and that operations must be
continued steadily until connection is
made with the road now under way
from Midway and from Oroville. The
V., V. ifc E. has Hied plans at Ottawa
showing the road crossing the international boundary line at Anarchist
mountain, above Rock creek, and reentering Canada at the junction of
the boundary line and the Similkameen country.

The surest way for a man to be
robbed of his good name is to write it
on his umbrella.
A man seldom realizes what a cold
world this is until his creditors begin
to make it hot for him.
The real Christian helps the poor at
home before sending money to the
heathen in foreign countries.
In Persia the marriageable age is
from 14 to 70, but even in Persia a
woman occasionally gets left.
A man in Oh o has recently eloped
w th his mother-in-law. Ohio has de-
vel iped a great many patriots and
heroes.
Before marriage a man promises to
refuse his wife nothing—and after
marriage that is about all that she
does get.
The price of horseshoes is going up,
according to a blacksmith's paper.
But when the shoes of mules go up,
look out.
You should never wait for a thing
to turn up. Go and turn it up yourself—it takes less time and it is surer
to be done.
If the man who has money to burn
could only take it with him when he
dies, hi/ would have a good chance to
burn it.
The champion fraternal insurance
agent liar has been discovered, of
course, in Chicago. He cites the following proof that his lodge pays more
promptly than any other lodge on
earth: One of our members fell from
the roof of a thirty-story building,
and a cheque for the ameunt of his
certificate was handed to him from
the second story on his way down.
Wearing Away Vour Lungs?
Yes, and your strength too. Stop
oughing aud get rid of that catarrh.
The only remedy is Catarrhozone, which
goes to the diseased tissues along with
air you breathe; it can't fail to reach
the source of the trouble; it's bound
to kill the germs, and as for healing
up sore places, nothing can surpass
Catajrhozone. If you don't get instant relief and ultimate cure vou will
at least yet your money back, for Catarrhozone is guaranteed to cure catarrh in any part of the system. You
run no fisk—therefore use Catarrhozone—at our expense if not satisfied.
