Fourth Year-No. 54.
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, May 5,1905.
Issued Twice a Week.
BIG LAND DEAL
N. McLellan and E. Miller Buy the
Old McConnell Estate, Comprising 1340 Acres.
Will Subdivide It Into Small Blocks
and Put Same on the Market
at Once.
The most important real estate
transaction put through in this section for a number of years was consummated this week, when N. McLellan and E. Miller acquired the
old McConnell estate located a few
mileseast of this city,and comprising
1340 acres of exceedingly fertile
land, well suited for fruit growing
and market gardening. The consideration is said to have been $40,-
000, with terms satisfactory to the
purchasers, the only stipulation
made by the vendors being that the
estate should be cut top into small
farms. This land is was among the
first to be located in the Kettle River
valley.having been filed on by James
McConnell, now deceased, between
thirty and forty years ago. The soi
is very rich, and the entire ranch is
well watered. Every foot of the
ground is capable of being irrigated
The new owners have already put
a corps of surveyors to work subdividing the estate into small blocks,
and 700 acreB of this hnd will bo
surveyed at present, and will be put
on the market as soon as the necessary arrangements can be perfected.
Forty acres of this land is at present
leased to the Riverside Nurseries.
Mr. McLellan was lately engaged
in the flour and feed business in this
' city. He made a brilliant success
in that line, and it is safe to predict
that he will do the same with his big
land deal. He says he has a novel
scheme for bringing settlers into the
country, but refuses to divulge tho
details of his plan ut present.
This big transition has given
quite an impetus to the real estate
market, and enquiries for fruit lands
in this vicinity continue to increase.
city, states that he expects to have
all arrangements completed soon
whereby the big showing can be
worked and thoroughly proved. He
also says that the Sunset mine, on
Copper mountain in the Similkameen country, in which he is also
n terested, has been heavily financed
by F. L. Underwood, president of
the British Columbia Copper company, and associates, aAd that they
have agreed to start work on the
property on or before June 1st next.
Clarence Smith has resigned as
secretary-treasurer of the American
Labor Union, owing to ill-health, and
his place has been filled by John
Riordan, of Phoenix, B. C. Mr.
Riordan has proved himself a giant
in the cause of organized labor in
the northwest, and as secretary-
treasurer of the American Labor
Union his latent ability will come to
the surfaee, and the quiet and unassuming brother from Phoenix wil 1 be
recognized in a short time as a man
with a clear head and a powerful intellect.—Miners' Magazine.
J. F. Royer, formerly proprietor of
the Model livery stable in thia city,
but now conducting the Phoenix-
Chesaw stage line, has recently been
out in the Similkameen country
purchasing horses for his business.
Mr. Royer will extend his line as
soon as possible by putting on a relay of stages west from his Chesaw
terminal to Hedley, via Oreville. He
expects to have all the necessary ar
rangements completed and start the
stage over the new branch by May
15th.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The city assessor of Phoenix has
completed his rolls for the year 1905,
and sent out the hotices to property
holders. This year the rolls show
that land within the municipal limits
is assessed at $161,175, andimprove-
irients at $116,200, making a total
of $277,875. This is a somewhat
smaller total than for 1904,
owing to lower valuation by the assessor in Borne degree, but largely
due to the fact that during the last
year the V., V. & E. railway acquired by purchase considerable
property within the city limits,
which, under the provincial Municipal Clauses Act, is not subject to assessment. The rate of taxation last
year was 18 mills on the dollar, with
a discount for prompt payment. The
rate will be decided upon this year
after the sitting of thc court of revision, which is not likely to alter
the assessment rolls to any appreciable degree.

Ward, Chief Engineer A. H. Hogeland, General Superintendent G. T.
Slade and J. R. W. Davis, in charge
of the maintenance of way depart
ment, came over the line as far
north as Phoenix this week. As the
officials did not go farther west, it
is not thought likely that their visit
to the Boundary had any connection with the building of the proposed line into the Similkameen
country.
David Whiteside has purchased
35 one-acre lots south of the West
ward from P. T. McCallum. It is
understood that the consideration

Special Meeting This Afternoon Considered the Street!
Will Solicit Subscriptions From Business Men and Ask for Tenders
for the Work.
A special meeting of the city council was held in the council chamber
at 2 o'clock this afternoon for the
purpose of considering the question
of having the streets sprinkled during the coming summer. Mayor
Hammar and all the aldermen were
present. •'
A resolution was passed instructing the city clerk to get subscriptions from the business men, to
which will also be added a subscription from the city. The clerk was

for tenders for the sprinkling by the
hour, bids to be opened on Monday
next at 2 o'clock, when the council
will take action.

BOUNDARY MINING NEWS.
A report was received in the city
this week from Eholt this week to
the effect that a rich strike had been
made on the Buttercup claim, located
near that place and owned by N. J.
McDonald. A six-inch quartz ledge,
running high in free gold, was encountered. It is said that the find
created quite a sensation in the camp.
This week Supt. A. B. W. Hodges,
of the Granby company, sent Foreman John Rogers with a force of
men to the well known Boulder
claim near Eholt, where they will
take out a couple of cars of ore for
shipmcut and testing at the company's smelter. If results are satisfactory, it is more thnn likely that
the Granby company will take a
bond on the property and work it.
The Boulder is owned by M. Gebo,
of Eholt, and Charles Saunders, of
this city. It is located less than a
mile from Eholt toward Long IJike
camp, and has an immense surface
showing. Considerable work has
been done on the property in the
way of stripping and sinking shallow shafts, and there seems to be no
question whatever of thc tonnage
being there, if tbe values in thc iron
ore are satisfactory. The Boulder
has been examined in thc past by
mining engineers, but this is the
first time that shipments have been
undertaken.
June 29th is thc date selected for
the visit ofthe Institute of American Mining Engineers to Grand
Forks and Phoenix. An effort is also
to be made to get the party to visit
Greenwood. (Ulfi? Starring &mt

FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1905
There is a greaterdemand for farm
and fruit lands in this valley this
spring than there has ever been before in the history of the district.
People are just beginning to realize
that the supply is limited, and that
the demand will continue to increase
from year to year. In tho Okanagan
and Similkameen districts ranching
land is at present reported to be selling at $300 per acre. In the immediate vicinity of Grand Forks a superior quality of land—suitable for
either fruit raising, market gardening or farming on a large scale—
can bo purchased for about half that
amount. The climate in the Boundary is about the same as in the
Okanagan, but this section possesses
superior markets and transportation
facilities. When these things are
taken into consideration, it becomes
quite apparent that the rush for land
in the Kettle River valley has just
begun. If the prospective buyer is
wise, he will buy while prices are
reasonable.
The platting of the McConnell
estate, consisting of about 1400acreSj
into small tracts, bears about the
same relative importance to the future prosperity of the city as tne
erection of another six-furnace smelter would. Seven hundred acres are
to be surveyed nt once into ten and
twenty acre blocks, nnd the promoters promise to have these lots settled by families from eastern Canada
and Manitoba before winter set in.
Making a conservative estimnte, this
will menn nn addition of about fifty
families to the valley. Allowing
six person persons to each household—and this is a low figure—we
have 300 people, about the number
required to operate a six-furnace
smelter.
four bronze medals open for competition annually among the pupils of
the public schools of these four
cities. These hnve from year to
year been given by the successive
governor-generals. Earl Grey has
decided to increase this number by
giving an additional silver medal for
competition at the Nelson high
school, and eleven more bronze
prizes, adding an equal number of
public schools to thc list. There will
now be an annual competition lor
the medals in tho public schools at
Ladysinith, Cumberland, Kamloops,
Vernon, Revelstoke, Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, Trail, Kaslo and
Fernie, in addition to the four coast
cities, which have formerly had this
honor of distributing the governor-
general's modal. The educational
department has received direct . information from Earl Grey that thc
number of medals is to be iucreascd
as outlined. Itis highly probably
that the additional medals;will be
open for competition for the first
time in 1906, thus affording a clear'
yearto prepare for it.
A bill respecting thc Coast-Koote-
nay Railway company (McLean
Brtjs.) has been reported to the Dominion house. The bill is for an
extension of time for the construction of the line and branches authorized five years ago. There bas been
no building to date. The company
is allowed two years to begin and
five to complete.
Hon. William Ross, of Nova
Scotia, who was for a time minister

An Ottawa dispatch says that the
memorable fight between the Corbin
railway charter in 1898 is likely to
be repeated in connection with the
application of the V., V. & E. for
certain amendments to the charter,
the bill for which hns been introduced by Duncan Ross. Interested
parties are getting up opposition.
Hill owiib thc V., V. & E. charter,
and has already arranged to build
160 miles of road from Phoenix to
Princeton this year. The line will
be continued to the coast, and the
plans show the entire line from Cascade to Vancouver in Canadian territory, except a short portion round
Sidley mountain, where a turn into
the States is made to secure a low
grade. As there is a strong feeling
in parliament in favoi of railway
competition, the legislation asked for
is almost sure to pass.
Earl Grey, the present governor-
general of the Dominion, has been
pleased to increase Ihe number of
medals which will be open for competition among the scholars of British Columbia. For some years past
four silver medals have been awarded yearly to the high schools of Victoria, Vancouver, Nanaimo and New
Westminster.    There have also been

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
PRINTS all the news of the
Boundary, and prints it
while it is news. It is the
only twiee-a-week paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
or controlled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
• a combination of merchants,
ti, be used as a means 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 printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. He does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
different pnrties about wbat
he intends to say.
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads The Sun twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore tbe best
advertising medium in' the
Boundary.

This Medicine Is Breathed.
That's why it is sure to cure catarrh. You see it goes direct to thc
source of the disease—its healing vapor repairs the damage caused by catarrhal inflammation. Catarrhozone
always cures because it goes into those
tiny cells and passages tb.it ordinary
remedies can't reach; goes where the
disease actually is. Impossible for Catarrhozone to fail, as any doctor wiil
tell you. Don't lie mislead into thinking there is anything so good as Catarrhozone—use it and you'll soon say
good-bye to catarrh. II. E. Woodland, druggist.

That Pale, Tired Girl.
She is in society, in business, at
nonie, everywhere you see her, but always worn and fatigued. She hasn't
heard of Ferrozone c r she would be
perfectly well. How quickly it
strengthens, what an appetite it gives,
what a glow it brings to pallid cheeks!
The nutriment contained in Ferrozone
puts' strength into anybody. Laughing eyes, rosy lips, bright quick movements all tell of the vitality Ferrozone
produces. Thousands of attractive
happy women use Ferrozone—why not
you? A box of fifty chocolate coated
tablets costs fifty cents at any drug
store.   H, E. Woodland, druggists,
