H' .1. Carter-Cotton, at a meeting
in Vancouver last Saturday of the
finance committee of the Royal Institution for the Advancement of
Learning in British Columaia, stated
that he had received a letter from
Dr. Tory, who is in Montreal, to the
effect that Andrew Carnegie had
given a donation of 850, U00 to the
building fund of the McGill university college of British Columbia,
conditional on a similar amount being raised within a certain period.
This gift from Mr. Carnegie makes
a substantial foundation for the fund
of 8100,000, which is the sum tbat
the board of management of the college considers should be raised before the actual work of construction
is undertaken
Grand Chancellor Irvine Visits
Grand Forks Lodge
No. 30
Forty-Fourth Anniversary oi
the Order Appropriately
Last Tuesday evening, the 26th
inst., Grand Forks Lodge No. 30,
Knights of Pythias, celebrated the
forty-fourth anniversary of the order. The meeting, which was a
grand rally and roll call, was well
attended, there being about 70 persons present, including the grand
chancellor of British Columbia, Wm.
Irvine, of Nelson. A liberal program, the numbers of which were
enthusiastically received, was provided. After an appropriate opening ceremony and a selection by the
orchestra, composed of Messrs.
Dewdney, Tutt and S. Hull, the
calling of the roll of the membership
of the lodge by the keeper of records
and seals, R. F. Petrie. Those not
responding to the roll call were invariable represented by communications of regret, which were read.
This feature of tbe program proved
most interesting, there being some
twenty communications read from
absent members in various parts of
the country. Speeches were made
by a number of the members. In
responding to the toast, "Grand
Forks Lodge No. 30," Jeffery Ham-
mqr gave an interesting address, in
which he took up the history of tbe
lodge from its organization, tracing
its growth to the present day. "Our
Absent Brothers," respouded to by
Ernest Miller, proved a niosi interesting narrative. "The Insurance
Department," by Geo. Chappie, was
interesting as well as instructive.
The speech of the evening was made
by Grand Chancellor Wm. Irvine,
who took for his theme "The Order
of Knights of Pythias." Mr. Irvine
is an eloquent speaker, and he handled his Bubject in a masterly man
ner. His remarks were well received.
Many interesting recitations were
rendered, those contributing to thiB
part of the program being W. E.
Hadden, Matt Miller, G. H. Hull
and H. A. Sheads Songs were
given by Geo. Nye, W. F. Stuart
and J. C. Suit/.
One of the interesting nnd pleating features of the evening was the
presentation of a past chancellor's
jowel by the grand chancellor, on
behalf of the Grand Forks lodge, to
Stanley Hull. This surprise was
appreciated by all the members.
"ifter the conclusion of the program, an adjournment was made to
tbe banquet hall, where a most
tempting supper had been prepared
by the ladies of Grand Forks Temple No. 36, Pythian Sisters. After an
hour spent in the banquet hall,
where cigars and social intercourse
helped to while away the time very
pleasantly, a further impromptu
program was rendered, and it proved
most interesting. The visitors from
the Danville and other lodges contributed to the entertainment in a
happy manner.
To Exterminate Fruit Pests
An active campaign ngninst de
struotive insect forces in British Columbia orchaids has been undertaken
by Thomas Cunningham, provincial
inspector of fruit pests, in the interests of the high standard of excellence
now enjoyed by the fruit of this province. In order to fully inform all.
horticulturists of the nature und import of this movement, Mr. Cunning-
hum has issued the following notice:
"Notice is hereby given to owners
nf orchards und fruit trees and all
whom it may concern:
"That in order to prevent the
spread of insect pests und diseases injurious to fruit trees and fruit it is
found imperatively necessary to prune
and thoroughly spray all orchards in
this neighborhood with such mixtures
as must be applied when trees are dormant.
"Fur the destruction of all scnle
insects, wooly aphis, bud moth, the
eggs of green aphis, und other pests,
the No. 1 solution, viz., lime-sulphur-
sult solution, is found to be the most
effective. Full purticulurs of the best
method of making and applying this
solution are now published in a bulletin which may be had on application
from Martin Burrell, in this city; J.
R. Anderson, secretajy, nf the board
of agriculture, and the secretaries of
the various farmers' institutes throughout the province.
"The necessity of maintaining the
excellent leputation of British Columbia fruit, which is now rated higher
than that of any other district or
province in the British empire, is of
such paramount importance that if the
owners or persons in possession of infected or diseased fruit trees further
neglect to apply the necessary measures for cleansing the same'the trees
must be destroyed at the expense of
the owners, as provided by the British Columbia Hortiultural Act and
amendments thereto.
"All pruiiings, debris and other
rubbish must be burned up at the
time of pruning."
The bulletin referred to in the above
notice is now in press, and will be
distributed throughout the province
in the course of a few days.

The British Columbia Copper
company is one of the strongest and
mo3t important organizations operating in the British Columbia region.
It was organized in 1898, under the
laws of West Virginia, with a capital stock of 82,000.000, in shares of
the par value of 85 each, which sum
has recently been increased to 83,-
000,000. The company owns copper mines at Greenwood, B. C, with
adjacent properties, and is actively
operating them. Important improvements have recently been completed
in connection with its furnaces and
operating plant. It originally had
two furnaces and an operating plant,
and during the past year three modern furnaces, having a daily capacity
of about 700 tons euch, or about
2000 tons in all, bringing the total
capacity up to about 2500 tons
daily. Various otber improvements
have been made, so as to bring the
plant up to tbe highest efficienc.
It is expected tbat tbe company will
now be able to produce refined copper at about 8} cents per pound,
and, with two furnaces and at the
present price of copper, be able to
earn approximately 81,000,000 net
per annum, to be increased wben
tbe three new furnaces are in operation.
The company has also acquired
considerable additional mining
pioperty of great promise.
For thc future tbe outlook is highly encouraging, and it is expected
that the payment of dividends will
have to he recorded in the near future.
Large expectations are entertained
of the new administration. Mr. Colgate Hoyt brings to bear great experience in connection with the
handling of important railroad,
financial and industrial interests.
He is United States trustee of thc
Netherlands Fire Insurance company, and director and trustee of
many other important corporations.

The Great Northern Railway company appears to be undecided at present as to the best location for its first
divisional point out of Spokane on the
V., V. (St E. line. It might be a good
idea for the Grand Forks board of
trade to get together and help the
company to decide the question.
The proposition of purchasing by
the corporation of the city electrician's building, located on the city
lots, appears to bob up before the
council quite frequently. It has
been stated that room for a workshop for the electrician can be
made in the city hall building. If
this is true, there is no necessity of
the corporation investing in a iob lot
of frame buildings, especially as it appears to be well supplied with structures of this type at present.
The threatened strike of the coal
miners of this province and Alberta
would, if it is carried out, be a dire
calamity to the whole western country, and would give it a serious setback. As the coal and coke supply
on hand at present is rather limited,
it would probably tie 'up railway
transportation, as well as cause a complete suspension of mining and smelt
ing operations. It is to be hoped that
the points in dispute between the employers and employees will be arnica
bly adjusted The frequent troubles
in the coal regions of late years have
caused an untold amount of suffering
to innocent people. Any fresh outbreak would almost cause a person to
swear, even though he had never used
profanity before.
The Lord's Day Act is a puzzler
to a great number of people in this
city. We confess to being in the same
boat. We scarcely know how to actor exist, because acting is prohibited—
next Sunday. It is difficult to say
what a man can, or cannot, do on the
Sabbath. One thing is certain, if you
are caught buying a Sunday paper
you are liable to be sent to jail. And
yet the newspapers have done more
during the past ore hundred yenri to
civilize the world than the preachers
and chnrches dirl during the previous
18 centuries. There is no reason why
the Sunday paper should be barred,
because the work in connection with
issuing it is almost wholly done on
Saturday night, while tlio work of
printing the Monday morning paper
is mainly done on Sunday night. If
the clause respecting Sunday papers
is strictly enforced, it well be illegal to
distribute the Sunday scliwil sheets in
the churches next Sunday.
Of course the poor workingman who
works eight, hours a day, and plays
solo or blackjack the other sixteen,
requires absolute rest on the first day
of the week. In this instance the
Act is all right. We can also endorse the clause permitting housework on the Lord's day. The majority
of housewives only work about sixteen
hours a day, giving them eight
hours for rest and sleep, which should
bo sufficient. Consequently they do
not need a day of rest.
Taken as a whole, however, we believe the Act is puritanical and wholly
uncalled-for. The Sabbath has been
strictly enough  observed  in Cannda
heretofore to suit anyone not a fanatic. In fact, some of our leading citizens believe our Sunday laws have
been too strict; that these blue lows
have been responsible for the exodus
of the vast army of sturdy young
Canadians to the United States, where
their' liberties have not been quite
so circumscribed, while we in turn,
in order to keep our population from
decreasing, have been compelled to
open our doors to the lowest type of
the European emigrant and to the
uncivilized hordes from Asia and
The Act is an attempt to make
good citizens by legislation, which has
never yet been accomplished. Every
young man has a certain amount of
surplus hilarity, and if he is not allowed to get rid of it during his
youth, he generally does so in after
years. The model young men ,who
have never sown any wild oats often
obtain positions of trust, it is true;
but during our brief sojourn in this
wicked world we have observed that
this type of man, in later years, is
more apt to elope with the people's
money or his neighbor's wife, or both.
Personally we believe that the man
who works on the Lord's day in order
to pay honest bills has a brighter show
of entering the kingdom of heaven
than the man who goes to church three
times on Sunday and then leaves town

Volcanic Hotel Case
His honor Judge J. R., Brown
held a special sitting of the county
court at the court house last Friday,
when the appeal of R^A. Brown
against the license com'missioners'
decision in refusing him a renewal
for the Volcanic hotel was heard.
W. B. Cochrane appeared for appellant. License Inspector Dinsmore
proved notice of appeal which had
been duly served. No official complaint had been made against
Brown's conduct of the bouse. In
the license inspector's it was stated
that this license was not necessary
in the public interest. Mr. Dinsmore said this statement was still
good, and tbat he had made the
same report in respect to other
licenses which had subsequently
been granted. The nearest licensed
bouse was about a mile and a half
from Brown's. Mr. Brown's license
was granted at the same time as
Hartinger's, though the latter came
first. Mr. Brown testified that he
was the owner of the Volcanic hotel;
had located the Volcanic twenty-
four years ago, and had been steadily
in the district tor seventeen years;
did not use any liquor himself; had
spent $500 in fixing up the hotel;
there was a good deal of transient
traffic, and lately from three to five
four-horse teams of W. P. Tierney
had stayed there every day at noon.
His honor asked if Mr. Brown had
attended the bar himself. Mr. Brown
replied that he had been there about
half the time. Mike Scully bad
conducted the house during his absence. The judgejremarked that the
inspector had reported against any
public need of this license, nnd the
commissioners had used their discretion in the mntter, nnd why
should he interfere? W. B. Cochrane, in his ('losing argument, submitted thnt his client wns in common fairness entitled tn the license. I

GRAND FORKS, B. C. Trains to Oroville
On Saturday evening the first
passenger train service over the
Great Northern railway to Oroville,
the present western terminus of the
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway, was installed. The "run from
Oroville to Spokane will be just
twelve hours each way, the southbound train leaving Oroville at 5 a.
in., arriving in Spokane at 5 in the
evening. The northbound train
leaves Spokane at 10:15 in the morning. At this point there iB but a
slight change in the time table, the
train from the west arriving 5 rain-
vtes earlier than heretofore, and the
train from the south 5 minutes later.
On Monday morning the first
freight train was also sent out
of this city for the west, and it is
stated that it is the intention of tbe
company to maintain a daily freight
segvice between this point and Oroville.
Oroville is situated on the Okanagan river, in the extreme northern
part of the state of Washington near
tbe international boundary line, and
has heretofore been without tail way
tickets to all entertainments in re
turn for local references in the newspapers," complains the Greenwood
Ledge. "This custom is not observed in Greenwood. Instead, the
editor is often asked to buy tickets.
Because a 'newspaper office prints
a few ticketB or dodgers for a concert or ball is no reason that the
editor should purchase admission to
the entertainment. As a rule the
person ordering job printing gets
value for the money invested, and'
expects in addition a local reference
to De made in the columns of the
paper. Dances, lectures and concerts are intended for the entertainment of persons who have the lime
and inclination to attend, hut it is
too much to expect the editor to
buy a 81.50 ticket for every $2.00
worth of printing he does, and then
give a S5 write-up of the affair."

Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, the follow-
in)* simple formula, the ingredients of
which can be obtained of any good
prescription druggist at small cost, is
all that will be required: Virgin Oil of
Pine (Puee), one-half ounco; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shake well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hours. The de
sired results cannot be obtained unless the ingredients are pure. It is
therefore better to purchase the ingredients separately and prepare the
mixture yourself. Virgin Oil of Pine
(Pure) should be purchased in the
original half-ounce vials, which druggists buy for dispensing. Each vial is
securely sealed in a round wooden case
which protects the Oil from exposure
to light. Around the wooden case is
an engaged wrapper with the name—
"Virgin Oil of Pino (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. There are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

At the meeting Jot the International Coal and Coke company,
whose mines and plant are located
at Coleman, Alta., held in Spokane
last week, A. C. Flumerfelt, of Victoria, president ofthe company, filed
two reports, one addressed to the
directors and the otber to the stockholders of the company. These reports show that the affairs of the
company are in good condition,
financially and otherwise. The
officers of the company are: A. C.
Flumerfelt, president; H. N. Galer,
vice president, and W. G. Fraser,
secretary. D. M. Rogers, of Victoria,
lakes the place of Mr. Flumerfelt as
director. The company produced
during the past year 334,230 tons of
coal, of which 49,035 tons wero sent
to the company's ovens, and yielded!
31,066 tons of coke, nil of which had
n ready snlc. The bnlnnce of the
output wns marketed as coal. The
payroll for 11.06 amounted to S360,-
374.72, tbe average number of men
employed being 888, nnd the number of dnys worked were 2*10.
Thc Fiist Thought mine nt Orient,
Wash., owned by P. Burns, the

Journal. The Northport smelter is
again buying a portion of the First
Thought product, nnd some of the
ore goes to the Granby.

MOTICE is hereby given lhat I will apply, at
I* the next meeting of tne License Commissioners for the Grand Porks License District, for transfer of the Retail Liquor License for the Northern hotel, situate at Bannock City. Yale District, from the undesigned to Robert Lindholm, of Bannock City
aforesaid. *
Dated tbe 14th day of November, 1906
erating in this province, has had great
difficulty this winter on account of
shoitage of coal and coke, which .has
resulted in a reduction of output of
ore. It is hoped that normal condi
tiens will soon be restored.
Mr. McMillan says that capital is
coming this way, and will come in
still larger volumes when the market
gets a little easier. Experts think this
will be a few months hence. By way
of illustration, he mentions that he
and some influential friends in London are raising money with a view of
financing sound enterprises emanating
from western Canada. As to immigration, the Canadian government
officials in England told him last
month thtt they expected more people
to leave Great Britain for Canadu
than ever this year. Mr. McMillan
says that Lord Strathcona has done,
and is still doing, magnificent work
for Canada, and in England Canadians
ara a unit in thinking that he will
continue as commissioner.
The Security Phase
A prospect, except for loeution, may
lack intjinsic worth. A mine, with
ore blocked out, has that worth, says
the Daily Mining Record.
In mining we can talk of security
on absolutely business lines when we
have the ore, know its average value,
and understand the cost of mining
and treating it. That is a form of
security that will appeal to any bank
in a mining community. It is as safe
a risk, in case a loan is made, as agricultural land, with certain producing
That part of it we know. There is
another phase we sometimes overlook.
An investment of 8200,01)0 may bring
out a mine with *;*tt 0,000,000 blocked
out. It has been done, and there are
times when it works the opposite wav.
That is the fortune or misfortune of
the business. We know that tho
money invested may bring about similar results.
In manufacturing, we take a risk in
competing in a known market. AVe
know   the   cost of raw materials nnd
the cost of the manufactured goods.
We know that $200,000, under, certain established conditions, might pay
an average of 10 per cent a year, or
very little more. We work along lines
of rigid safety, as we term the thing.
Let us say that we risk the same
amount in miking. If we get a producer of merit, we may make 100 per
cei.t on our investment.
No one who truly champions the
mining industry will attempt to de*
fend it by saying tliere is no risk, but
that there is more chance of failure in
the aggregate than in industrial lines
may be substahtially denied.
Where a manufacturing enterprise
strikes the right plan, the business
might grow, but even its growth calls
for repeated heavy investments. In
mining, the single investment may
bring about greater growth in value.
I We have no raw material to buy in
mining. We take a great chance of
finding great quantities of it in the
mountains. One vein may produce
fortunes; one factory can scarcely ao
this. The business might warrant the
building of other manufacturing
plants, so as to meet the growing de-
mond. If manufactured articles advance 10 per cent in cost, the public
is distressed and says so. If an ore
shoot adds 10,000 per cent to the ore
opened up, only the same amount of
work required to drive through  bar*
for 190.
