Federal Labor Union Gives
Its Popular Dance on

On Monday last Frank McFarlane, the original discoverer of
Franklin camp, disposed of a one-
quarter interest in the Banner claim
to Wm. Spier, Dr. B. R. Northrop
and E. Miller for 81000-cash. These
parties also secured a six months'
option on tbe balance of the claim for
$15,000. The Bann&r was under
bond to Henry White, of Spokane,
six years ago, when' several thousand dollars worth.of. development
work was done on ii, but owing to
the uncertainty of transportation
facilities the bond wit not taken up.
The authorities have decided to
.use the old school shed, near the
English church, for a city pound.
It is currently reported in Greenwood that the Guggenheim Exploration company bas acquired a controlling interest in the Montreal &
Boston Consolidated. If the rumor
should prove to be true, it would
undoubtedly mean much for the
company and the district. Tbe
Montreal & Boston company has
some of the best properties in the
Boundary, and with plenty of operating capital would speedily become
an industrial concern of large proportions.
Negotiations are now pending
whereby the Montreal & Boston
Copper company will secure a bond
for a year on the Seattle mine,
located ten miles north of this city
on North Fork of the Kettle river.
The deal has not yet been completed,
but it is expected that the papers
in the transaction will receive the
signatures of the interested parties
in a day or two. The Seattle is
owned by Robert ClarM, the locator,
and Hay, McCallum & Wright, of
this city.
A. B. W. Hodges, general superintendent of the Granby Consoli
•Jated, visited Greenwood this week
for the purpose of making an exam
ination of the Bay mine, in which
many Grand Forks men are interested. High-grade ore, containing
much free gold, is being extracted
from both drifts in the mine.
In Greenwood camp bonds taken
on properties for the week include
the Silver Cloud fraction and the
Highland Queen. Operations will
begin on the Gold BufHunncl next
week, the plant having (teen put in
position. The E.P.U. mine, which
has just been equipped with a 25-
horsepower boiler and a No. 6 Cameron pump, is installing a hoisting
plant. \
James W. Grier, an old Boundary
newspaper man, passed through tt.c
city last Tuesday, on his way from
Fernie to Greenwood, his former
place of residence.
Attention jb directed to the notice
of the Dominion government regarding the disposal of federal lands
within the railway belt in this province, which appears in The Sun for
the first time today.
A court of revision of the voters'
list for the Grand Forks electoral
district will be held in the court
house in this city on Monday, May
1st, 1905, at 10 a.m.
Mission last September in the person
of Bill Miner, who is now laid up
with unallpox near Bellingham,
Wash., and upon recovery he will be
put On trial to answer the charge.
J. M. Simpson, the blacksmith,
has sold a half interest in his shop to
Fred Coombes, a practical mechanic,
and the new firm intends to commence doing business in earnest.
All accounts due Mr. Simpson up to
tbe time of the sale are payable to
him.
Manager Hammar is making extensive alterations and improvements in P. Burns & Co.'s meat
business in this city at present. The
Palace market, on the corner of
First and Bridge streets, was closed
a few days ago, and the building has
been remodeled and repainted, and
Mr. Burns' First street market ,will
be moved to thiB stand some time
next week. Later the building now
occupied by the firm will be moved
to First street, between Clark &
Son's store and Bridge street. This
building will be used for the market
as soon as the warm weather sets in,
as the sun gets too strong a sweep at
the Bridge Btreet shop. It is the intention of Messrs. Burns & Co. to
erect a fine brick business block on
their Bridge street lots either this
summer or next. The firm also intends to open a branch market in
the West end in thc near future.
At present they are short of manager
to take charge of this shop, but as
soon as one can be found this plan
will likely be carried out.
H. N. Galer, manager of the, International Coal and Coke company,
accompanied by Mrs. Galer, nee
Miss Belle McLaren, formerly of this
city, arrived in Grand Forks at noon
today from Coleman, Alta.
Reports from the smelters throughout tha province indicate that the
danger, of a general strike as a
result of the defeat of the eight-hour
bill has now entirely passed  away.

will be delivered here early this

A Grand Forks lady who was
given a piano.lamp for her birthday,
named it after her husband for the
fyllowing reasons : It has a good
deal of brass about it, it is handsome tojook at, is not remarkably
brilliant, requires a good deal of attention, is sometimes unsteady on
its legs, is liable to explode when
half full, flares up occasionally, is
always out at bedtime, and is certain
to smoke.
Mr. Harold Nelson and his ambitious manager, Mr. C. P. Walker,
have been ambitious in their dramatic productions the past two seasons,
but'have not attempted anything
quite bo pretentious as "Paul Kauvar." ThiB new production is described as eclipsing all previous efforts, and in it Mr. Nelson has made
the. artistic success of his1 career. Tbe
part of Paul Kauvar, painter and
patriot, is admirably suited to the
actor's personality and temperament. The play, dealing with stirring episodes of the French Revolution, tells a story of absorbing interest; indeed, there are few plays with
plot so strong. Mr. Nelson's portrayal is made more impressive with
special scenery and historically accurate costuming. "Paul Kauvar"
is to be seen at the Grand Forks
opera house on Wednesday evening
next, March 8th, and seats may be
secured at Woodland's drug store.

The most startling railway news
of the past week comes from Vancouver, which asserts that a deal has
been arranged by which the Provincial government is to turn over the
81,000,000 bridge at New Westminster to the Great Northern railway,
and in return that railway is to build
a line from Midway to the Fraser
river without a bonus. It is also
rumored that the Canadian Pacific
has purchased the railway between
Kuskonook and Bonner's Ferry and
the Great Northern steamboats on
Kootenay lake.
The preparations for the dance to
be given by the Grand Forks Federal Labor Union, in Eagles' hall
next Tuesday ev< n'ng, are now well
under way, nnd nre being carried
out on an elaborate scale. The music
will furnished by a first-class Republic musician. All who attend
may rest assured of having a good
time, as the various committees are
working hard to make the affair a
success.
The Catholic Social club held a
"smoker" in their clubrooin near
the Catholic church last Tuesday
evening. A large number of members and their friends were present.
Refreshment were served in abundance, and an excellent program, consisting of vocal and instrumental
music, recitations, etc., was admirably rendered.
The great "dream scene" of "Paul
Kauvar," Harold NolBon'B latest
play, is said to be a stirring nnd accurate picture of a startling episode
in the French revolution. . The
scenery was painted to represent the
actual spot where thc guillotine
stood during that awful "Reign of
Terror." Tho lighting effects for
this marvellous tableau are under
the direction of an expert electrician
who travels with the company.

Judge Kennan, at Spokane this
week, decided that a partnership
existed between Edward Covell and
Andrew Hackett in the location of
the Hackett group of coal claims in
Southeast Kootenay, and decided
that Mr. Covell was entitled to a
half interest in all profits from the
claims. An order dissolving the
partnership and requiring Hackett
to render an accounting was also
made by Judge Kennan. Horace L.
Kimball was appointed ns referee,
and a receiver will also be appointed. The Hackett gioup in South-
cast Kootenay comprises 150 claims.
Covell maintained that he was the
discoverer of the claims, and that
Hackett located them on information given by him. He claimed thnt
he was to have a half interest in all
tho profits. The profits from the
claims are variously estimated as being between 820,000 and 840,000.
A judgment was recently entered
against Hackett, giving two other
partners, Belden & Finch, an interest in coal claims in Southeast
Kootenay. Mr. Hackett located
the group of claims in Kast Kootc-
nny for the Orand Forks coal barons.
An employee of the Trail smelter
Btates that the men at those works
are not opposed to the eight-hour
law, and that the meeting which declared against the measure was assembled on five hours' notice, and
was made up largely of Slavs and
Italians. He further states that the
British workmen employed at the
smelter are almost unanimously in
favor of a reduction of hours of labor
for those who work around the furnaces, and are indignant at thc attempt to represent them ns opposed
to the bill.
J. H. Hodson, the West end
grocer, moved his family on his

FRIDA\, MARCH 3, 1905.
The Conservative Nelson Tribune
says: "If McBride can withdraw
his attention for five minutes from
gigantic schemes which he cannot
master, he might do some good to
the Province by helping out local
railways thnt have not been bonused
by the Dominion government, and
that would open up territory not
touched by the trunk lines." And
he might, also, help one line which
has been bonused by the Dominion
government, na*nely, the Kettle
River line up the North Fork, which
would open up a territory that would
be more productive, mile for mile,
to the Provincial treasury than any
other line in British Columbia.
The first Grand Trunk Pacific
bond issue of 815,000,000 has met
with a cordial reception. Within a
few hours after the subscription
books opened the whole amount
had been subscribed for ten times
over. Applications for 81,000,000 of
the bonds came from Canada, while
English and continental subscribers
put in bids totalling something like
8150,000,000. Despite the fact that
in these large over-subscriptions
there is often a considerable speculative element, there probably iB in
this successful flotation much cheer
for those behind the new transcontinental enterprise.
Provincial Fisheries Inspector Bab-
cock, in his report just presented to
the legislature, refers to the past season's ns the smallobt catch of sockeye
salmon in the Fraser river and approaches in the history of the industry. He advocates joint action on
the part of the United States and
Canada to replenish the fry. In this
connection he proposes prohibition
of fishing in thc Frnser river and salt
water approaches to it from July 10
to September 15 in 1906, 1907 and'
1908.
Fruit growing in the Kettle River
vnlley is one of the most profitable
industries. The market is almost
unlimited, nnd priceB nre high, and
will remain so for a good many years
to come.
Up at Phoenix and Greenwood
hockey and other winter sports nre
still occupying attention, while down
here in thc valley though we haven't
as yet picked any wild llowcrs this
season still wc soon expect to do bo.
American health inspectors have
discovered tbat dirty bank notes contain 73,000 germs. Personally we
are in no danger, however, as our
weekly salary does not call for a very
large bunch of these tokens, and, besides, we are quite willing to take
chances on dodging the ubiquitous
microbe.
Spokane is apparently growing
very fast these days and nights, and
claims a population at present of
73,852, including Hillyard and several other outlying districts.
A departmental regulation prohibits the posting in thc postoffice
building of any notices other than
those issued by the department; but
the people of Grand Forks don't
seem to know it, judging from the
variegated collection of notices usually decorating the walls of the local
postofiice building.
If the old adage about March and
the lion and the lamb is to be borne
out this spring, we are slated for a
dose of pretty severe weather at the
end of this month.
The opinion seems to prevail that
the movement for an eight-hour day
for smelter men in British Columbia
is apparently dead—but not buried
yet.
The eight-hour smelter bill inColo-
rndo, after being operated upon by
the corporations of the State, pnssed
the house of representatives.
Tomorrow Teddy Roosevelt and
his expansive smile will occupy the
centre of the stage at Washington.
Next Tuesday is pancake day.
WHY CO WOMEN SUFFER
Such pain and endure the torture of
nervous headache when a quarter buys
a bottle of Nerviline, which never
fails to relieve. Just a few drojs of
Nerviline in sweetened water cures
nervousness or sick headache, relieves
heart palpitation und makes you feel
better immediately. Nerviline can't be
beaten for quickly curing stomach and
bowel troubles and should be kept in
every home. It's good to rub on for
external pain and excellent for inward
use. Sold in large 25c bottles. H. E.
Woodland, druggist.

TUB COAL MAN.
The summer swiftly slipped away,
And autumn Is un deck;
That's why the coal man's reeling gay
And reaching for our neck.
When It was ninety In the shade
And higher still at night,
We'd meet the coal man on parade
And hardly be polite.
Of course we couldn't make a fuss
Or street disorder plan-
But when he'd try to speak to us
We'd say, "Who Is the man7"
But now the tables have been turned,
For when we pass him by
And try our best to be concerned
We get the glassy eye.
When summer rules the pleasant land
Tho coal man makes no hit,
But, oh, when winter Is at hand
He's surely all of "It!"
For then ho holds the cards to win
As much as he'can count;
For six months wo have saving been
To swell his bank account.
Money In Chickens-
Did you ever know a man who did
not think he could make a fortune
raising chickens except the one who
had tried it?
Any man with pencil and paper and
a slight knowledge of arithmetic can
ilt down and figure himself on Easy
street in a few
minutes with a
start of a dozen
hens and a red
headed rooster.
A man whose
only knowledge
of the business is
a hazy idea that
fried chicken does
not grow on
bushes has it
firmly fixed in his
mind that all he
has to do is to
rent a half acre of ground, build a few
primitive henhouses and sit down nnd
wait for people to bring money to him.
Half of the men you meet In a busy
city have a disappointed look on their
faces because they have tried the
chicken business and fell down, but
that does not for a moment discourage
the man who has never gone hard
against the game.
<i^
Rapid Work.
I. often wonder as I Bit
And listen to their chatter
How women ever manage It,
Amid the clang and clatter,
To ever know a word that's passed.
For each one talks so hard and fast
One woman says she heard a song
That simply Is divine;
Another nods and comes along
With some new place to dine,
While two or three Just talk away
As it It were their busy day.
They talk of fashjons, clubs and plays,
Their children and their husbands, too,
And brag about the little ways
They have of getting something new.
Each woman chatters at her will
And by no chance Is ever still.
It doesn't seem that one can know
A word another woman said,
Because such streams of language flow
From each enthusiastic head.
To hear them makes one stand aghast.
How do they learn to talk so fast?

ONE OF THE VILEST DISEASES
Is catarrh, which attacks the nose
and throat and finally spreads all
through the system. The one sure
cure is fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
which is sent by the air you breathe
direct to the root of the trouble. Mr.
T. Y. MacVicar, of Yarmouth suffered for years from catarrh, and says;
"In my long experience with the
loathsome disease I never used any
remedy that relieved and cured as
promptly as Catarrhozone. When my
nostrils were so stuffed up that I
couldn't breathe I found a few inhalations of Catarrhozone was sufficient to
ciear away the mucous. I am perfectly cured by Catarrhozone and free
from the disease entirely. Use only
Catarrhozone. Complete outfit $1.00;
trial size 25c. H. E. Woodland,

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.

distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge ot a competent guide,
whose business is to look aftur the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and Inexpensive means nf
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided hy these excursions.

WIDOW OF BALZAC.
Th* Author Left Ber u Great Mans*
and a Legacy of Debt.
When Mme. Hnuska's husband died
It was supposed that her union with
Balzac would occur at once, but obstacles were Interposed by others.   Her
own   family   looked  down   upon  the
great French author as a mere story
teller, aud by her late husband's people
sordid motives were Imputed to him to I
account for his devotion to the heiress. I
The latter objection was removed a
few years later by the widow's giving I
up to her daughter the fortune left to j
her by M. Hanska. This was followed |
by her remarriage after a "beautiful
heart drama," as her husband calls It,
"which hnd lasted seventeen years."
Six mouths later Balzac died, and my
aunt found herself for the second time
tl widow, with the burden of her husband's large debts and that of bis
great name, which she bore with such
dignity for thirty years longer. She
never spoke of the blow his death had
been to her. She must have ffelt It
deeply, and she would not hnve been
human If she had not cherished resentment against those whose opposition
to her wishes hnd robbed her of some
years of happiness, but if tt was the
case she never let any one guess it.
Once only I heard her mnke n remark
which gave me n strange Insight into
her Inner life. We were talking about
happiness in general, and I observed
how very eager people were to Interfere with that of their neighbors. My
aunt looked at me for some time, then
slowly said: "I think that this comes
from the fact thnt so very few people
understand what real happiness It
They mostly look upon It as a superficial thing and treat it with the light
beartedhess they nppiy to nil other enjoyments of existence. If they understood and realized whnt It renlly menus
for thpse who consider life In Its true
nnd serious light they would respect It
more."
OLD FASHIONED.
An old fashioned woman feels
mighty extravagant when she eats a
meal it a restaurant
What has become of the old fashioned bride wbo expected, of course, to
do her own washing?
What has become of the old fashioned woman who pierced the children's
ears to strengthen their eyes?
Whnt hns become of the old fashioned woman who made soup so thick
thnt she referred to It is meat, drink
and lodging?
What hns become of the old fashioned npple pie that contained bits of raw
apple Inside and was as mountainous
as the Himalayas?
When an old fashioned woman goes
awny on a trip her last words are, "I
Just know something terrible will bap-
pen here at borne when I am gone."
A man may successfully dodge automobiles and freight trains and still be
overtaken by the grip germ.
Now poor man has to go In training
for au nil winter catch-as-catch-cun
bout wltb the furnace.
The mnn who Is out of debt does' not
begin to hnve us much attention pnid
to him ns the fellow wbo owe* bills
right nnd left.
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 ?

an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stoek and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate oil your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
