Much Activity at Present on
the Property Near
It is reported that the property of
the Fife Mines, Ltd., at Fife, is at
present the scene of much activity.
The force of men has recently been
increased, and arrangements to start
shipping ore to the Trail smelter
have been completed. The main
drift has been extended for some
400 feet, and a connection has been
made by means of an upraise to the
surface, the entire rise being in ore.
The ore so far taken out has averaged
from 3 lo 6 per cent in copper and
from $3 to $8 in gold. One assay
taken recently showed values of 823.
The ledge his been traced for a distance 1500 feet, though its average
width has not yet been determined.
Following are the locations, certificates of work, bills of sale, etc.,
recorded in the Government office at
Grand Forks, B. C, of the Grand
Forks mining division, from July 10
to July 16, inclusive.

Results of McGill Matriculation Examinations
Of the 500 candidates sent up for
matriculation into McGill university, two were sent from Grand Forks
high school, both passing with the
following marks:
Miss Ida R. Hartinger—496, or
71 per cent.
Miss Dell Donnan—445, or 63 per
First class standing was attained
by Miss Hartinger in English,
Latin composition, sight translation
and botany, and by Miss Donnan in
Latin composition and sight translation.
His worship Mayor Fripp has
shown bis strong interest in the
cause of edueation by offering a
valuable gold medal to the pupil
graduating with the highest standing. The presentation of this medal
will take place during the early
part of August, of which due notice
will be given.
Le Roi to Resume
Advices received in Rossland from
the managing director of the Lo Roi
Mining company state that work on
tbat company's property will be resumed this month, and shipments to
the Northport smelter are to follow.
The importance of this announcement to Rossland cannot well be
exaggerated, as apart from the large
number of men who will be employed, the reopening up of the famous mine will very largely increase
the ore output in the district.
May Treat Dominion's Ore
The Toronto Financial [Post says:
"TheJBritish Columbia Copper company is to experince another change,
which will mean the entrance of Mr.
Adolph Lewisohn into the company.

ordinary hotel building.
A Scurvy Trick
Wednesday evening Judge W. B.
Cochrane, police magistrate ot this
city, received a missive purporting
to be a "black-hand" notice. It is
the unanimous opinion of all who
have seen the letter that it is the
work of some hair-brained practical
joker. If the guilty pnrty is found
out, he should be placed where he
would have no opportunity to play
any more such tricks for some time.
The person degenerate or crazy
enough to perpetrate an act of tbis
nature is only fit for the penitentiary or inBane asylum. Universal
indignation is expressed against
tbis contemptible deed.

B. C. Copper Company and
Miners' Union to Hold
The Greenwood Times of yesterday says that this week has witnessed the first move in the direction of a settlement of the differences between the British Columbia
Copper company and the Greenwood Miners' union. The company
offers the union the same recognition
and will pay the men on the same
wage seale as other operating concerns in the district, and has requested the union to send a committee to discuss the points in dispute. This is distinctly a friendly
advance, and the union called a
special meeting last night to arrange
for this.
"This is the vacation season of the
school trustees, as well as the pupils,"
snid a member of the board the other
day. "It is quite a relief to know
that, on your way down town in the
morning, you are not going to be
waylaid on every street corner by
irate parents complaining about tho
teachers chastising their youngsters.
This is a great relief. I had intended to take a vacation trip to the coast
during the dog dnys, but I guess this
relaxation from the ordinary routine
will rejuvenate me sufficiently this
"I always take the pnrt of the un
der dog in a fight,'' said the man in
overalls, as he returned to the corner,
after kicking half a diizen mongrel
curs from a big mastiff. "Dogs resemble men in many respect. Whenever the little fellows meet a big dog
which they are afraid to tackle alone,
they combine against him. Men do
the same thing; nnd they nre just as
vicious and relentless in their tactics
as the little dogs. But in the end
tho fellow—man or dog—who fights
hisown battles, nnd fights thorn alone,
generally wins out," The overall
philosophize paused for a roply, but
none was forthcoming.
"You don't charge enough for your
paper," said a lady subscriber to tho
Sun man, as thoy happened meet on
the comer of First and Bridge the
other day. The remark staggered the
cSun man, and he has since been endeavoring to ascertain whether ho was
awake or dreaming at the moment. Is
it possible that we do know how to
charge enough, after living in the city
' for nine long, weary years!
Progress on the Road
The railway builders got their
track-laying machine started on
Monday morning. As yet the crew
has been short handed, comprising
about 40 men where 55 are required,
and the full track-laying equipment
has not been put into use, so that
the average day's work has been
about three-quarters of a mile, instead of tbe mile and a half or two
■niles of which the plant is capable.
However, requisitions have been
sent in for more men and more
equipment, and full-speed laying
may be expected soon. Additional
men are arriving by each train.
About twenty came in on Wednesday. By Sunday it is expected the
rails will have reached Ashnola.
Here there will be a stop of perhaps
ten days until the 800 feet or so of
pile-driving in the Ashnola is completed. Pile driving will be going
on at the same time at the next
crossing of the Similkameen, this
side of Bradshaw's, so that there
will be little or no delay at that
point. G. E. Votaw, who has been
appointed trainmaster'"', 'he work,
arrived in Ken"* "• ,.n jesday.—

effect today, with no provision for
the disposing of the present stock of
liquors on hand or compensation for
loss to realty.

people are yet dreaming might become a reality.
The next great war will be fought
on land, in the air, on the ocean,
and under the ocean's waves. This
is the cheerful intelligence brought
us by the sensational press dispatches. In other words, hell will
extent, during warfare, from the
highest empyrean to the nethermost
depths of the sea. But why should
the next great war become an actu-
a'ity? Wars are a relic nf barbarism,
and it is about time thnt the world
advanced a step by abolishing them.
If differences between individuals
can be adjusted by the process of
law, why could not international
disputes be settled by arbitration or
international tribunals? If two persons become involved in a quarrel
over a piece land, and they agree to
settle the difficulty by means of
guns, the victor is hanged as a murderer. But when two nations en-
g'ge in war over some imaginary
grievance, the victors become heroes.
From a moral point of view, are not
the two cases cited really analogous?
Remove the crimson glory from
the victorious warrior, and view him
in the light of a malefactor, and the
glamour of war would soon wane.

An Offer Which Meets the Special Wants of All Classes of Readers
The Western Canadian reading public is made up chielly of these classes
Persons who have lived in tho West for a lengthy period and are out and out
Westerners, and recent arrivals from the Old Country, from the United
States and from Eastern Canada.
Perhaps no one newspaper could cater with complete satisfaction to all these
classes, but by this combination offer every special need is met
The Weekly Free Press and Prairie Farmer gives a complete record week
by week of all happenings in the Western Provinces. In addition it has special
departments for American and British settlers. The Family Herald and
Weekly Star supplies the former resident of Eastern Canada with news of the
Eastern portion of the Dominion in detail, and the Grand Forks Sun provides
Uielocdl and Boundary news, which you cannot do without.
Truth, munificence, and valor, are the
virtues of a kin*;:
Koyaity, devoid of cither, sinks   to  a
rejected thing.
Hold thy vantage!—alligators on  the
land make none afraid;
And the lion's but a jackal that   hath
left his forest-shade.
Gentle, generous, and discerning; such
a prince the gods to give!
Skilful, honest, and true-hearted;
where does such a vaisal live?
The people ate the   lotus-leaves, their
monarch i.s the sun—
When he doth sink beneath the waves
they vanish every one.
When   he   doth   rise   they rise again
with bud and blossom rife,
To   bask   awhile  in   his warm smile,
who is their lord and life.
All the cows bring forth are cattle—
only now and then is born
An authentic lord of pastures, with
his shoulder-scratching horn.
When the soldier in the battle lays his
life down for his king,
Unto Swerga's perfect  glory   such   a
deed his soul shall bring.
'Tis the fool who, meeting troubles,
straightway destiny reviles;
Kno-ring not his own misdoing
brought his own mischance the
Tinie-not-come and Quick-at-peril,
these two fishes 'caped the net;
What-will-be-will be, perished by the
fishermen beset.
Who deals with bad dilemmas well, is
The merchant's wife,   with   womanly
Kissed—and denied  the  kiss—under
his eyes.
Sex, that tires of being true,
Base and new is brave to you!
Like the jungle-oows ye range,
Changing food for sake of change!
That which will not be will not be,
and what is to be, will be:—
Why not drink this easy physic, antidote of misery.
Whoso trusts, for service rendered, or
fair words, an enemy,
Wakes from folly like one  falling  in
his slumber from a tree.
Fellow be with kindly fuemeii, rather
than with friends unkind;
Friend and fciciiian are distinguished
not bv title but bv mind.
Whoso,   ore   he   makes   a   gain has
spent it,
Like the pot-breaker will repent it.
Whoso setting duty highest, speaks at
need unwelcome things,
Disregarding fear and favor,   such  a
one may succor kings.
Seven foemen of all foemen, very hard
to vanquish be:
The Truth-teller, the Just dweller.and
the man from passion free,
Subtle, self-sustained, and counting
frequent well-won victories,
And the man of many kinsmen—keep
the peace with such as these.
And "he man with many kinsmen answers with them all attacks;
iVs the bambu, in the bambus safely
sheltered, scorns the axe.
Cheating them that truly   trust   you,
'tis a clumsy villainy!
Any knave may  slay the child   who
climbs and slumbers on his knee.

supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering

digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies

Paul's Second Missionary Journey
—Athens.   Acts xvii:16*34.
Golden Text—God is a Spirit; and
they that worship hini must Atorship
him in spirit and in truth. John iv::'-].
Verse 13—Can any true man, at
this time, see the folly and sin which
thousands so eagerly follow, without
his spirit being stirred?
Verse 17—Notwithstanding chat we
all, necessarily, have trades and call
inns to pursue, should, or should not,
our chief concern be the tremendous
icsues involved in spiritual truth,
and why? , (This question must be
answered in writing by members of
the club.)
Verses 18-21—The Epicureans and
the Stoics had a contrary philosophy
of life; state briefly what they each
Which brings the more lasting happiness, and develops the nobler character, a life devoted to the pleasures
of sense, or a life devoted to service for
others, and to self-denial?
WhatJ as a mutter of fflet, ia the
substance of what Paul taught?
Shouldjwe lend a respectful ear to
all new theojies of life, and   eternity,
or reject them   without examination?
Verse 22—Which is the better man,
the active skeptic, or an indifferent
ami thoughtless Christian?
Which is preferable, to be everspec-
ulating about God, or to have no
thought concerning him?     '
Is belief in and a longing for God,
peculiar to Christianity?
May a heathen who has never come
into tonch with Christianity Und out,
and know, the true God?
What then is the advantage for a
true-hearted heal hcu, coming into contact with Chi istianity?
Vorse 23—Can one man who knows
God, be the means of imparting that
knowledge to another who desires to
know him?
I Verse 24—How do we know that
j God made all things?
i God does fill heaven and earth with
his presence; but does he not also
dwell in temples that are made in
which to worship him?
Verse 20— While God does not need
the support of man's hands, does he
not desire the worship and love of
men's hearts?
How does God give to all "life and
breath, and all things?"
Will we in heaven be able to see
God, in any different way from the
way in which it is our privilege to see
him now?
Verse 26—What is the evidence
that all iitces of men sprang from the
same original stock?
Has God had anything to go with
the national, and geographical, divis
ions of the globe, as they exist  today?
Has God had anything to do with
our present individual conditions?
Verses 27*28—What is both the
chief joy and object of life?
Is it possible for every man to find
God if he will but seek him, and what

i Enlargement of Furnaces
Two more of the enlarged furnaces
at the Granby smelter iu this city
have now dractically been completed,
and will be placed in coniinisson
within a few days. This will bo six
of the battery of eight furnaces that
have been enlarge!, with a ca me i y
equal to that which the entire battery
formerly had.    As   consequence,   tho
ore shipments and smelter treatments
of the Granby company will soon
show a big increase. The enlargement of the remaining two furnaces
will probably not be finished until
October. When thoy are in operation, all previous records will be
broken at the big reduction works.
