Annual  Tax Sale of Oity
Property to Be Held on
September 14
The regular meeting of the city
council wbb held Monday evening,
Mayor Fripp and Aid. Lequime,
Manly, McCallum being present.
W. G. McMynn.government agent
at Greenwood, wrote that the proposed isolation hospital would be located in or near Grand Forks. The
provincial government would bear
one-third of the cost nnd the munic-
ipalties participating in its construction two-thirds. The clerk was instructed to notify Mr. McMynn that
thecouncil considered the proposition
favorably, and desired to be furnished with an estimate of the cost.
The railway commission, in answer to Solicitor Sutton, wrote that
the C.P.R. bad stated that the signal apparatus for the Riverside
avenue crossing had arrived in
Grand Forks and work of installing
it begun, also asking that they be
advised if it is not completed in
reasonable time.
The Royal bank asked permission
to construct a septic tank under the
sidewalk at its proposed new building at the corner of Bridge and First
streets. The council felt inclined
to allow the bank to build the tank
under the First street walk, with the
proviso that in the event it proved a
nuisance it would have ' to be removed. The clerk was instructed to
inform the bank that the council
would take final action when the
plans of the tank are submitted.
The chairman of the water and
light committee made a complaint
against the B. C. Telephone company's guy wires at the corner of
Bridge and First streets, and the
council ordered the company to remove the same,
The board of works reported having employed a man to cut obnoxious
weeds in the city.
The health and relief eommitteo
reported that the necessary arrangements had been made to send an indigent old gentleman to the Kamloops home.
Aid. Whiteside reported that Mr.
construct sidewalks and other mu-
nrcipal works and charge a portion
of the cost against the owners of
property on streets where improvements are made.
A representative of the Vancouver
World addressed the council in reference to an advertising proposition
in a Bpecial issue of that paper. He
offered a page ad. and a page write-
up for $200, the council to pay $100
of this amount and the board of
trade and the business men the balance. The proposal was very thoroughly discussed, and, cm a vote being taken, the offer was rejected,
Aid. Lequime and Whiteside voting
for and Aid. Manly and McCallum
and the mayor against it.

H. II. Naughan, of Montreal, assistant to   the vice-president    and
At intermittent period during the
present summer faint rumors have
reached this office that the fruit crop
in the valley was not all that it
should be. The Sun therefore, on
Sunday last, decided to make a personal inspection, and with that object in view a number of orchards
were visited. At Mr. Eugene Her-
rick's place, on the Covert estnte,
a thorough examination of tbe orchard revealed the fact that instead of
dearth of fruit, the owner complained bitterly because be lacked
the time to thin the growing fiuit
properly. All the apple trees of the
standard varieties were loaded with
fruit. On only a few trees, of varie
ties not adapted to this climate, was
there a scarcity of fruit noticable.
Mr. Herrick informed The Sun that
some of his cherry trees had netted
him 810 each this year. This does
not look much like a fruit crop failure.
Mr. Herrick was of the opinion
that there should be a market for
the fruit at present being thinned
out. The apples are perfectly
formed, and make as nice pies and
sauce as the ripe ones, but the only
use that can now be mude of them
is to feed them to the hogs.
authenticated report that Engineer
Baseett, who, it will be remembered, was here in the spring and
early summer of 1905 locating tho
V., V. & E. from Hedley both ways,
is now in the Coquihall with a large
force of men, and the belief is that
it is the C.P.R. he is working for.
Should this be bo, and the C.P.R.
means business, there will be high

Great Northern railway will have to

link from Midway to Nicola connected up and a route down the Co-

have a cinch on the Boundary-coast
passenger traffic.
Thus it transpires bit by bit that
the snail's pace maintained in building the V., V. & E. during the past
four years has been the means of
hatching up numerous difficulties
that would never have been heard
of if the work had been pushed vigorously to completion.
With the cherished scheme of a
joint route down the Coxuihalla for
the V., V. & E. and the Canadian
Northern railway that valley was to
be a veritable vale of amity suggestive of the millenium itself; but the

John Simpson, who returned to
this city last week from Athabasca
Landing, where he has been teaching school during the pnst year,
gives an interesting description of
that far-north settlement. There
are five stores, n large hotel, a newspaper, and a branch of the imperial
bank at the Landing, he says. The
hotel, the newspaper and the bank
are tho most northerly in America
east of the Rockies. Athabasca
Landing is 100 miles north of Edmonton by stage, ami is on the
southern hank of the Athabasca
river, which is navigable for Steamboats. It is expected that the Canadian Northern raitway will soon he

At about 4 o'clock this morning
fire was discovered in he old Queens
hotel building on Gouernment avenue in the West end. In the confusion that followed, everybody overlooked the fact that tho most important thing on such occasions is to
send in an alarm ns quickly as possible. Consequently some time
elapsed before the department was
notified, and when the brigade
reached the scene the Harries were
beyond control, and when they were
finally extinguished the Queens

and they had all they do to save the
bnildiugs on the opposite side of the
street and Laurier hall, all of which
caught a-fire several times.
The buildings destroyed were all

fiercely. The Hames were not discovered until they bad gained considerable headway, and some narrow escapes are reported. Miss Larson, who occupied a room on the
second lloor of the Queens, was
forced to climb down a verandah
post. She lost about 8100 worth of
personal effects. The Haverty family barely had time to get out of the
house with one change of clothes.
Everything else was lost. Nothing
wns saved from thc meat market
but the scales. Some of the people,

The suggestion has frequently been
made to The Sun that the city should
make an effort to secure the two half
blocks in the burnt district near the
North Fork for park purposes. The
idea is an excellent one, and we heartily endorse it. We are afraid, however, that it would be difficult for the
city to finance the 9t*henie at piesent.
But it will do no harm to obtain the
views of the ratepayers on the subject.
tion that comes from having added
something to the world's wealth, or
gained a great business success or industrial victory, is a pleasure the idler
can never know. The man who loves
his work takes as much pride in turning out a good job as the athlete does
in winning a game, and in nine cases
out of ten the work gives him as
much vigorous and healthful exercise as is to be obtained on the diamond, links or tennis court. This
sort of man never commits suicide.

classes of today is largely responsible
for this lamentable state of affairs.
To the man or woman who possesses
a healthy body and a sound mind,
work should not be viewed in the light
of drudgery or torment, but as a pastime. There is more pleasure in accomplishing the object one may set

Airships Will Race Daily
Aerial contests between five or more
airships will be held this year at the
Spokane fair for prizes aggregating
S'2oU0. The races will take place
every afternoon of the week. This is
not entirely a new attraction for the
fair, the introduction of the airship.
Hut the races aro absolutely new, and
are introduced because of the fact that
the Stroebel Highta last yeur took so
well .vith the public. Aeronauts are
not limited to any particular style of
(lying machine in the daily contests,
though special prizes of $500 are offered for the longest lights of any
form of a heavier than air Hying machine and for tbe longest flights of
any form of dirigible balloon.

Local Option
Premier McBride, in replying tie a
letter from E. II. Morgan and Mr
Spencer on the local option plebiscite,
"I ean assure you it is the govern-
tncni's intention to take a plebiscite
on this question. At tho present I
am not in a position to make a public
announcement in this regard. Vou
may rest satisfied that ample time will
be given between tbe announcement
and the taking of the plebiscite."
After many years' experience in
local option campaigns, Dr, Spencer
says Hritish Columbia has made wonderful strides in its desire for the
people to settle tho liquor question,
and to eliminate it from politics. Wise
statesmen will do this.

A venue. Not Sisters
Now and again you see two women passing down the street who look like sisters.
You are astonished to learn that they are
mother and daughter, and you realize that
a woman at forty or forty-live ought to be
at her finest and fairest. Why isn't it so?
The general health of woman is so intimately associated with the local health
of the essentially feminine organ:: that
there can be no red cheeks and round
form where then is  female weakness.
Women who have  suffered   from
this   trouble  have   found   prompt
relief and cure in the use of Dr.

What good qualitios for a preacher
did this man Apollos possess?
What did ''the baptism nf John" include, and what did it lack of full
orbed Christianity?
What percentage of present day
preachers will exceed Apollos (1) in
their zeal and ability (2), iu their
Christian knowledge, i.e.; personal experience, of Christ's gospel!
If Apollos had been conceited or
anything less than a man of God,
would he have   submitted to teaching
from a layman euicl his wife?
Verse 27—Should laymen use the
pen more frequently to help preachers
whom they know who are going to

Verse 28—Why is it that Cod has
conditioned all human progress and
betterment, including a knowledge of
the gospel, upon the zeal, ability and
goodness of those who. already enjoy
its benefits?
Chap. xix:l-7—Were these twelve
persons whom Paul found at Ephesus,
actually the reconciled children of God
at this time?
What proportion of present day
Christians have, practically, the same

Is the Holy Spirit, as spoken of in
this lesson, generally received at or
subsequent to conversion!
If it is now the privilege of every
Christian to receive the Holy Spirit,
and tn Walk in Hiin thereafter, how
may he be received?
Was the gift of tongues and prophesying then, or is it now, a necessary
accompaniment of the baptism of the
Holy Spirit? (See I Cor. 12: 4-11, 29,
Is there anything necessarily implied in receiving the Holy Spirit,

The August Rod and Gun
The holiday feeling pervading the
land during the hottest month of the
year is well represented in the August
issue of Rod and Gun in Canada,
published by W. J. Taylor at Woodstock, Ont. How the people in the
Maritime provinces, known by reason
of the sea breezes as the "Kingdom of
Cooldom," enjoy the beautiful summer
weather is told in a profusely Illustrated article. A delightful paper is
"Still Hunting With a Camera;" while
of equally absorbing interest is one on
similar lines—"Shooting Wild Geese
With a Kodak."    To detail the list of
good things would be to repeat the
table of contents, but the article on
Voracious Eaters hy Martin Hunter
is worth attention from all sportsmen.
The King of Furbearers is a story of
a successful attempt at fox rearing for
the sake of pelts. Bloodhounds and
Trailing will appeal to all dog lovers,
and Mr. Hartlett's paper on the
Wolves follows up the interest created through the magazine in this important subject. This number should
accompany every sportsman on his vacation, for in its pages he will find
much to make his leisure time pass
