Tracklaying on the Kettle
Valley Line to Be Started
This Week
Daily Passenger Service Between Spokane and Molson on G. N.
Steel for tbe North Fork extension of Kettle Valley lines, arrived in
the city the latter of las'; week, and
the officials of the road state that
tracklaying will be commenced this
week. Work will be Btarted from
where the grade parallels the C.P.E.,
and proceed north. The grading of
the roadbed through the city, is now
being proceeded with, and will soon
be completed to the Kettle river.
The newly completed section of
the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern
railway between Midway and Molson
was opened to passenger traffic Saturday evening. The event of the first
arrival of the "varnished car" was
appropriately celebrated in Molson
by the shooting of powder and dynamite  and a general display of fireworks,   which  was followed by a
grand hurrah on the part of the entire population of the town:   Two
or  three Grand Forks citizens participated in the jubilation.    Tbe
distance from Midway to Molson,
by the new road, is thirty miles and
a fraction.   It  is the most scenic
piece of road in the west, there being a number of loops between the
two towns.   The grade for nearly
the entire distance is about 2£ per
cent.   The road has been  accepted
by  the  Dominion government inspector of railways, and a daily pas-
, senger service between Spokane and
Molson is now in force, the train arriving at the latter place at 8:30 in
the evening and leaving at 6 o'clock
in  the  morning.   Substantial stations have been erected all along the
line  on  the  Canadian side of the
line, being one of the conditions with
which all new roads have to comply
before  acceptance  by the government.   On the American side, where
they have no such law, they are still
minus  the  stations.    Tracklaying
west of Molson ia now being vigorously   prosecuted, and it is  stated
that the company intends to extend
the passenger service to Oroville by
Christmas.
as Mr. Reeder neared the cut he heard
the oncoming train and thinking
he had best turn about and take the
roadway, he quickly retraced his steps
but was unfortunately caught just a
few feet to the north .of the crossing,
whioh is about a hundred yards south
of the rock out.
Mr. Leltoy Marbelle, acting as deputy coroner, empanelled a jury ami
an inquest was held over the remains
and a verdict 'that the deceased came
to his death thru accidental death'
was brought.
Mr. Joseph Reeder was born in
Pittsfield, Illinois', in 1848. He came
to Orient about three years ago, taking up a homestead a mile and a half
north from here where he had since
made his home. He leaves a wife,
five sons and a daughter to mourn his
untimely death. The wife resides at
Hatton, Wash.; the daughter, Mrs,
H. Cooper, at Lind; two sons, at Ritzville, and three here.
Mr. Bcoder's death conies as a
doubly hard blow to the family, as a
son and brother, J. M. Beeder, diod
less then a month ago. at Lind.'
Funeral services were held last Friday and interment made in the Orient cemetery.

Killed by Great Northern
Kettle Biver Journal: On Wed
nesday morning the people of thi:
community were shocked to learn of
the accidental death of one of its most
respected citizens, Mr. Joseph Beeder.
Mr. Beeder, in company with Mr.
J. L. Huggins, a neighbor, left the
city shortly before the north bound
passenger, which was running over an
hour late, for their homes a mile and
a half north of town. At a point
ahout a mile north the wagon road
crosses the track; here Mr, Huggins
Kft Mr. Beeder, the former going the
wagon road and the latter continuing

cut and the place is made doubly
dangerous by a slight enrve.

The Coal Supply
The strike of the coal miners em
ployed by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company", now in its seventh week, is
beginning to bo felt in a manner hardly anticipated in this section, of the
province. While the B. C. Copper
company's and the Dominion Copper
company's smelters secured their coke
supplies from other concerns that the
one where the strike is in effect, it
would not trouble them Then the
Granby securing its heavy coke supplies from West Superior, Duluth and
Chicago, it was hoped that the most
extensive coke user in British Columbia would have fljO-lurtlier troubles,
even though the increased cost of coke
from the east was much heavier.
But it seems that the Great Northern railway relied to a large extent
on the Fernie coal mines for coal for
steam porposes, und while the railway
has other important sources of supply,
the cutting off of the Fernie source
cripples the road, at least for the time
being. So much so is this the case
that the railway has been uuable to
haul the coal from Montana fast
enough to enable them to haul the
coke and ore necessary to keep the
Granby smeller in full blast. As a
result, the Granby smelter is able to
operate but four of its battery of eight
furnaces most of the time, though occasionally six are in commission,
when plenty of coke happens to come
in. The railway has thousands of
tons of coke en route from the east, in
addition to thousands of cars of merchandise, delayed fur the same reason.
At the same time, the C. P. B.,
which has other sources of supply for
coal in the Kootenays than Fernie,
has been able to secure praciically ull
the coal needed, as far as known, the
Hill line not touching those local
sources of supply. It seems to keep
the Great Northern busy to get coal
enouh to haul its passenger trains and
most important freight trains.
Mr. Sneod, of Bodie, was in Midway last week to start a force of men
tons larger than for the month of Sep-1at wo,k developing a mineral claim
tember. While the Granby company
did not send out ns much as during
September by some 60u0 tons, and
the Snowshoe sent very little, the B.
C. Copper company is on the list
again to stay, having sent out over
12,000 tons of ore, and the Dominion
Copper company's mines exceeded
their previous month's record-by 1200
tons.- October shipments were 94-,
860 tons, against 95,311 tons for the
month of September.
located on the east side of the river at
Ferry. The surface showings are said
to l>e good, and Mr. Sneod has decided to test the propositon. He has
supplies on hand, and will push work
through the winter, employing a dozen or more men.
Provincial Election Predicted
for the Middle of December
Two local wheelmen had a colision
in the suburbs of the city last Saturday that put "the shot that was heard
around the world" so far in the shade
of the old apple tree as to defy the
penetrating glow of a pound of radium. Wheelman No. 1 had finished
his eight-hour shift and was scooting
back to the city, where he knew a
substantial meal was awaiting him.
He was blind with hunger so'failed to
discern No. 2 directly in his path.
No. 2, whose thoughts had carried him
to the dizzy heights of Observation
mountain in vain attempt; to figure
out when the coveted 20,000 would
be realized, had solved the problem to
his own satisfaction when the two
came together. It- was a striking
meeting,and the affair at Feinis looked sick in comparison. No. 1 picked
himself up to ascertain what |iad
struck hiin. It didn't take him long
to find out and then he took a look
at his wheel. One glance satisfied
him that the sidewalk was not too
crowded to walk in on and he hiked.
No. 2 had fared better and continued
as he hod started. Both of the wheelmen are positive that the bumps they
received must have jarred every one
of their relatives on foreign shores.
C. Eugence Bortle, of Detroit,
Mich., one of the officers of the
Belcher Mining company, was a
visitor in the city last Saturday.
W. A. Harkin, the well known
Grand Forks newspaper mau* who
has been spending the summer
months in Franklin camp, left on
Saturday for Rossland, where he will
be connected with the Miner staff.
Lloyd A. Manly's fine new residence, opposite Bridge Btreet across
the North Fork, has been completed,
and the family have moved into it.
The Kettle Valley Lines train now
arrives at Republic at 10:07 a.m. and
leaves at 1:50 p. m. «
R. H. Trueman, the well known
Vancouver photogher, is now located at Blome's old studio on
Bridge srreet. He will remain in
the city but for a short time, and
this is your only opportunity to secure firBt-class photos for the holiday season.
Elaborate preparations nre being
made by Grnnd Forks Union No.
180, W. P. M., for their "smoker,"
which is to be held in the opera
house on Tuesday ceiling, November 20th. The event is gotten up us
a celebration of the first anniversary of the eight-hour day in the
Granby smelter. A good program
of songs, recitations and dances has
been arranged, and a three-round
boxing exhibition by Billy Bunting,
of this city, nnd Barney Mullen,
champion of 1'. E. I., will be one
of the strong drawing cards. The
music will he furnished by the
Grand Forks band. A good time is
assured those who attend.
Several weeks ago a business men's
meeting was held for the purpore of
compiling data with a view to convincing the Great Northern that
freight handled by that road, both in
and out of thh Chesaw. couutry, says
the Myers Creek News, warranted
the building of a spur across the international boundary line, and the es-
tablishmeht of a shipping station on
the U. S. territory for the accomodation of the Chesaw traffic. As a result the operating department has already sent a man to Chesaw to look
into the matter. P. H. Burnham,
district freight and passenger agent,
was detailed to the responsible job,
and was in Chesaw last week to confer with the business men in connection with the proposition. Mr. Burn-
ham stated that the cost of building
a spui would be a small item to the
Great Northern, and providing the
company took a favorable view of the
matter, it would likely be built at
once.
Vancouver Nov. 10.—The World
tonight has the following from Victoria: "It is semi-officially stated that
dissolution of the provincial house
will be announced next Wednesday,
and that the elections will take place
about the middle. of December, the
faithful having been notified to stand
ready. Some doubt is entertained
and expressed as to the action of the
lieutenant governor. The quarrel between Hawthornthwaite and McBride
is believed to be simulated."
Upon receipt of the foregoing dispatch The Nelson News telegraphed a
gentleman in close touch with the
government for confirmation or contradiction of the report. His reply
was as follows:
"Amongst those closest to McBride
the opinion prevails that the announcement of a dissolution may be
made at any monent. During each
evening of the past three days premier McBride has been addressing
meetings on the island and this lends
color to the theory that the elections
will be held at a very early date.
Premier McBride was usked on Friday for aauiiiiouiiseiiient. His reply
was that at present his mind was not
made up."
Coal cannot be had in Fernie at
any price and wood is scarce. At
Michel the coal company owns all the
wood which it is claimed it has forbidden the inhabitants to touch. The
same prohibition against taking wood
has lieen made against the miners at
Feinie. The fire in the mines is reported to be out. The men fought
this fire during the strike and at grent
risk Ejectments will be launched
by the coal company against all tenants at Michel. As Michel is a clos-"
ed town, the coal company owning
everything both in town and for
miles around it, the difficulty of securing places to move to is an almost
insurmountable one.
The Oversight, in Belcher camp, is
now shipping regularly to ;the Boundary Falls smelter. After the present
month the shipments will average six
cars  per  day,  the  smelter  havin
The Greenwood Amateur Dramatic society will play "Our Boys"
in the Grand Forks opera house on
November the 17th, under the auspices of the Catholic church.
A dance will be given on next Friday night by C. K. Simpson, at
the Wayside hotel. The old reliable
Tom Duffy wiil permeate the atmosphere with the old favorites on his
cremona—and Tom can always incite
any set of feet to action. Supper will
be served and an all round good time
I is anticipated.
Try This for Your Cough
To relieve a cough or break up a
cold in twenty-four hours, the following 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 ounce; Glycerine, two ounces; good Whisky, a half
pint. Shako well and take in teaspoonful doses every four hourH. The de
sired results cannot be obtained unless the ingredients are ilu.0.' 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 Pine (Pure)"—plainly
printed thereon. There are many imitations and cheap productions of Pine,
but these only create nausea, and
never affect the desired results.

According to a Vancouver dispatch, it now begins to look as if
the Victoria Times knew what it was
talking about when, a short time
ago, it stated that Premier McBride
appeal to the country in December.
The dispatch says that an official announcement of the dissolution of the
provincial house will be made tomorrow, and that the election will
take place about the middle of next
month. Whether the dispatch is
founded on fact or not, it is impossible to say ; but it would aynii as if
it were time for the opposition in
tiispnrtof the province to commence organiz ition for the fight.
B. C. Copper Improvements
The following from the Greenwood
Times gives a fair insight into the development work being curried on fby
the B. C. Copper company in Summit
camp. "The B. C. Copper company
now lias about 55 men at work in the
camp. On the Denoro the coinpany
is working at great disadvantage as to
shippihg facilities. The union track
between the C. P. R. and Great Northern lines does not work to advantage. A few hundred feet of track
connects the tw'o systems, but to get
empties from one to the other, and
then back again, involves correspondence with two companies at each end
of the process, and this means much
delay. The indications are that this
nuisance will be presently abated if
the C. P. C. should build a spur to
the Denoro on a still lower level than
the Great Northern, as is now being
projected. Then the ore from the
great quarries above would all go
down to the lower levels and be loaded direct on C. P. It. cars and carried
by that system to the company's plant
The DenOra property is looking fine,
and "ore everywhere" is the shortest
way of expressing tho condition.
From the 150 foot level of the Ein-
ma the company is extracting a great
amount of ore. From the bottom of
tho shaft on this level the drift is run
in on the ore body 146 feet, und still
being pushed ahead. The width of
t'.ie ore body is not definitely known
but in places the oro has been chambered out to a width of 32 feet. The
diamond drill shows ore, an unknown
quantity, still beyond. So soon as
the power company can run its pole
line from Phoenix the entire plant
will be operated by electricity. This
will probably be in three weeks.
The B. 0. mine is yielding a sin
prising amount of ore for the amount
of new work doiio. Some unexpected
deposits have been openad up as the
general process of cleaning up thel
mine has progressed and little new
work has yet been dune, and practically no prospecting. Many of those
working at the Denoro und Emma
live at the B. C, where a number of
very comfortable dwellings are to be
found, witness to the enterprise of the
old Chartered company.
With the new plant in working
order at the Emma and better shipping facilities, the output from Summit camp will be largely increased,
and with the Mother Lode's product
be ampie to meet the demands of tlu*
big smelter at Greei wood."
It is rumored thnt K. of  P. lodge
n this city nre contemplating the
erection  of a  hall and opera house
on Winnipeg avenue.
A grand dance will be given in the
new hall in Midway next Friday
night.
Born—In Grand Forks, on Mon
day, November 12, 1906, In Mr.
Mrs. L. Canty, a son.
Victoria, Nov. 12.—Chief couimis-
ioner Green's refusal to sell Babine
lake lands to the dominion government is accepted as a reversal of the
policy in force when the Kaien island
was sold to Anderson, Bodwell ifc Co.
The commissioner says he has no
power under the Lam! Act to sell
larger blocks than 160 acres to any
one person. Local members of the
legislature claim that their contention
at the house last session that the
Kaien island sale was illegal, and
w.d the land must revert to the province, is* confirmed by the commissioner's answer to the dominion and
serious complications at Prince Rupert are anticipated.
Fernie Strike Settled
Fernie, Nov. 12.—On Friday
night last Thos. Burke, President
Mitchell's representative, went to
Michel and at a union meeting, held
behind closed doors, reported on the
result of his labors in attempting to
settle the strike. A committee of
six of the leading men of the union,
appointed for that purpose, wrote
General Manager Lindsey a letter requesting 'him' to address the company's employees at Michel on Saturday night at 8 o'clock, which request was acceded to. The men convened their meeting and then adjourned, and Mr. Lindsey was invited to lay the company's case be
fere thein. Nearly all the Michel
miners were present, nnd listened
most interestedly to what for two
hours anil a half was said to them,
and at the close of the address and
after asking several questions, all of
which were answered, the meeting
unanimously passed a vote of thanks
to the speaker.
Mr. Lindsey quoted from the
written documents to show that there
wns but one issue—the refusal of Ihe
union men to work with non-union
men. This, he showed, it had been
promised would never tnke place.
This was admitted then and there liy
John Laurenson, the former president of Michel union, who was present at the meeting nt which the
promise was made, and Mr. Lindsey
said he was content to rest his case
on Laurenson's word.
It was pointed out that Mr. Sherman had said at the Dicken investigation that he had never intended a
strike, but that when ho found out
tbat a strike had been called he did
not make any effort to rectify it. If
no strike wns intended, then the
whole proceeding was a demonstration in force to coerce unwilling men
into the union, and it wns charged
that the whole proceeding was a deliberately planned attempt to force
i hi' closed shop, conceived nnd carried out, but a movement which had
uut away from its authors.
Mr. Mitchell had sent them a telegram telling them all men must join
the union and that at the end of seven days union men must cease to
work with non union men, and that
they had done so and struck in consequence. If the sacred promises of the
United Mine Workers of Ameriea
were broken and not to be relied on
and Mi. Mitchell sent representatives
hero to back up that policy, he must
be excused for desiring not to continue business relations wiih them any
further. Mr. Lindsey also said Unit
if necessary the mines would remain
closed down for six years rather than
submit to the elo- ■■; shop principle
even if they.had no' '> en promised it.
Ho also pointed out wherein Mr.
Burke hnd overstated his case in addressing the meeting on Thursday ill
the opera house at Fernie,
Later.—A message from Fernie
lata this afternoon is to the effect
that the strike has been settled.

This Will be Your Only Opportunity to Secure
THAT AWFUL ' Kill!"
Now that we've got a 2o,0<J0 club,
Say, ina, would  it lie wrong if I
should ask
A question more or les.*; and should
J dub
It as a "corker'' would you take to
task
Your  kid?   Of course I know you
never would—
You know  1 try my bestesi  to  be
good.
We'll have a water wagon, won't we
rim,
S line tune in June the coming year
And say*
How would it strike yon, ma, if we
—but slniw!
It wouldn't do to iifl; lor anyway.
Uut all the h line it would be awful
nice
If we could have Thanksgiving dinner twice.
Ha, hn, I have to laugh; there is one
^ thing
Tli'it we might have as well ns m t.
(I gues-t
It  wouldn't  c i-t so awful iinnh to
bring
A   Hindoo  iu  to  cut  the tneii'i'on
grass.)
He wouldn't want a thing hut brnn
to eat—
And say, the  park,  now, wouldn't
it be sweet!
Of course you know what's oest.denr
mn, so I
Will just keep still. ' But then, you
see, I thought
It wouldn't hurt to ask you, tun, fo
why
Are you so cross nt me, your kid,
when not
A word I've said against the council-
men
And promised never, nevjy«44i again?
There is only a step between love
and matrimony—nnd sometimes a
step-mother.
Some people eat chestnuts, some
tell them, others are compelled to
listen to them, and still others live
on Chestnut street.
The inferior half is beginning to
brace himself for those Christmas
cigars bis wife is going to present
him with.
The drum major can never le
pirfect because he always has his
drum to beat.
Like a Thief In the Night
That's how pain conies. \We sit
near an open window, get stiff neck
or sore back. Perhaps cool off to
quickly after exertion —rheumatism
develops.
Spend what you may, but money
can't buy anything better than Pul-
mjii'n Nerviline. Its penetrating power enables it to reach deep tissues,—
that's why it cures aches that all else
can't toncli. For outward application
wfrguarntee live times more strength
than in anv other liniment. Inwardly it is harmle-s and as sure as the
hereafter to ease at once. Don't accept a substitute for Poison s Nervi
line which is tho one great household
panacea of today.

A Question Often Asked
Why so many people 'feel worse
after taking pill than before? Trouble
is that drastic pills are used. No remedial action is obtained, tho bowels
are irritated and dreadful constipation
follows. In using Dr. Hamilton's
Pills you are scarcely conscious of
having taken medicine. Although
Dr. Hamilton's Pills do regulate the
bowels, stimulate normal action' of the
glands, and create neither nausea,
griping or violent action, they are
very mild, positively guaranteed for
biliousness, indigestion, stomach, liver
anil. kidney ills. For a safe family
pill rely on Dr. Hamilton's; 25c per
box at ail dealers.
