DEALS 1 LAND
Mr; J. W. Brown, the orchard
land dealer, returned to the city last
Tuesday evening, after spending
five or six weeks in Manitoba and
the Northwest.
Asked concerning the condition
of crops generally in the grain belt,
Mr. Brown replied that the prairie
country had been more or less generally visited by early frosts, but as
prices for cereals were higher this
fall than in former years, the farmers would realize a fair average from
their crops.
Mr. Brown Btated that the deal
negotiated last August by the H. H.
Campkin Co., Ltd., of Indian Head,
Sask., for the sale of 300 acres ofthe
Johnson ranch, which adjoins the
city liniitB of Grand Forks, bad been
closed. Besides these 300 acres, the
same company had also disposed of
an additional tract of 240 acres of
this ranch to partieB in the Northwest.
The H. H. Campkin Co., Ltd.,
is the largest concern in the west
dealing in lands. They cover the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba with a complete network
of branch offices. They handle immense tracts of lands, and could
dispose of 10,000 acres as easily as
they sold tbe 300 acres for Mr.
Brown.
Mr. Brown has contracted with
the purchasers to plough the 300
acres he has disposed of, and this
work is to commence at once. Next
spring 200 acres of this trnct is to bo
planted into lruit trees, and tho bal
ance of the land will be sown to
grain and feed.
whose wives are willing to take service with their husbands.
4. Women domestics.
A majority of the applicants is of
(lass 1, but there is a considerable
number of Class 2. Class 3 in much
less numerous, and there ore very few
applicants in Class 4. Most of the
married men are desirous of having a
dwelling separate from that of the
employers, an arrangement which
should commend itself to those who
look to securing permanent help.
Under an agreement existing between the government and the emigration branch of the Salvation Army
a considerable immigration of farm
hands and domestic help is expected
from Great Britain during the spring
and early summer of 1908.
The government is very desirous of
securing the immigratian to British
Columbia of a reliable class of white
labor, and invites tne eainest cooperation of the farmers, fruit growers and dairymen of the province to
that end.
You are therefore requested to call
the attention of employers of labor in
your district to this letter, and request them to fill in, as comprehensively as possible, the forma enclosed.    Yours truly,
B. G. Tatlow,
Minister of Finance and Agriculture.

The Sun is able to state this week, busin0Ha  in his new quBrtel,.   Mr.
on what it considers to he first-class
authority, that instead, of the Cun
ildian Pacific Ruilwuy company waiting until next spring to commence
work on the projected improvements in the West end, a start is to
be made ns soon as the preliminary
arrangements can be perfected. The
recent visit of the C.P.R. ollices here
evidently had something to do with
this changes. The improvements
include the erection of large aepair
shops and roundhouses, which undoubtedly means tbat Grand Forks
is to be made a divisional point.
McBean, the retiring proprietor, has
moved his family to the West end,
where lie will reside for  some time at
least.
The news reached the city yesterday that the cse of Rex vs. La
Blanch, which was tried before Mr.
Justice Clement at the Greenwood
assizes on Wednesday, had resulted
in the jury bringing in a verdict of
not guilty. The accused was charged
with having falsified payrolls, but
the prosecution is reported to have
failed utterly in establishing a case.
E. Miller, of this city, appeared for
defendant; J. D. Spence for the
crown.
Mr. C. Manford, manager of the
H. H. Campkin Co, Ltd., of Indian
Head, SaBk., arrived in the city
on Wednesday, and spent a dny
here under the guidance of Mr. J.
W, Brown in looking over the vari
ous fruit-land propositions in the
the valley, and also paid a visit ti
Ihe Granby smelter. He was very
well pleased with what he saw, and
expressed confidence in the future
prosperity of the community. Mr.
Manford is a very busy man,and the
time at his disposal in any one
plnce is quite limited. He left yesterday on a trip to inspect the lands
of the Similkameen and Okanagan
districts, thence returning to Ihe
Northwest. It is staled that the
com pany of which Mr. Manford is
the manager is seriously considering
the advisability of opening n brunch
olliee in Spokane.
The Ladies of the Catholic church
will hold a Grand Bazaar in the Grand
Forks opera house on November 18th,
19th and 20th. One feature of the
bazaar is to be a popularity contest
between Miss Ida LaBliiiii'h and Miss
Ella Lyden for a gold watch.

Society of British Columbia,
Harry Lutley, shift boss at. the
Granbv smelter, had a foot badly
crushed on Wednesday evening, and
was removed to the Grand Forks hospital. He is now doing as well as can
be expected.
Provincial Subsidies
An Ottawa dispatch states that the
finance department of the Dominion
government will forward to the various provincial treasurers in a few
days cheques for the amounts due
under the provisions of the amendment to the British North America
Act respecting provincial subsidies,
passed at the last sessions of the Canadian and British parliaments. The
annual provincial subsidies are paid in
half yearly installments on July 1
ann January 1. On Jul-* 1 last the
amounts due the various provinces
under the old arrangement were forwarded, the imperial government at
that time not having notified the Dominion government of the' ratification
of the amendments to the British
North America Act. The increased
amounts due on those payments will
now be forwarded. Of the increases
Ontario will get, in round numbers,
$789,000; Quebec, $600,000; Nova
Scotia, 8177,000 New Brunswick,
$138,000; Manitoba, $212,000; Saskatchewan, $136,000; Alberta, $100,-

To Employers of Labor
The following letter is self-explanatory:
Victoria, Oct. 22, 1907.
To thc Editor of The Sun.
Dear Sir:—Letters are being constantly received by the bureau of provincial information from persons desiring work on farms and orchards.
These application are from the middle
and eastern provinces of Canada, the
British Isles and northern Europe,
and may be divided into four classes,
namely:
1. Young men inexperienced in
farm work, wishing to learn practical
farm .vork and horticulture.
2. Experienced farm hands, unmarried.
3. Experienced farm .lands, married   (with   families   or   otherwise),
Fred McKeehan, the U.S. immigration inspector, reports having
seen one of tbe balloons that left
St. Louis on Monday sailing between
Meyers FallB and Marcus on Wednesday afternoon. Mac's long training in looking for people who attempt to evade payment of the head
tax enables him to see things that
are invisible to person gifted with
second sight.
"A Texas Ranger" will be the
next attraction at the Grand "Forks
opera house, where it will be seen
for one night only, Tuesday, Oct.
29. The play deals with the life of
some cow-punchers and miners who
seek adventure and gold in the Lone
Star state. The hero is Jack Dallam,
a typical cow-puncher of the Panhandle country.

An Excellent Attraction
In bis efforts to secure the best
class of attractions for the Canadian
west, Mr. C. P. Walker has secured,
by a large guarantee, the services of
Mr. David B. Gaily and a supporting
coinpany of New York players, presenting "We Are King " This attraction, with the prestige of five
years' remarkable success in the theatrical centers of the United States and
Canada, will play a limited season
under Mr. Walker's direction, visit
ing tlte principal cities of the west.
"Wc Are Kin*;" breathes the romantic atmosphere of Anthony Hope,
with a plot that is sufficiently strong
to hold the most critical and sufficiently involved to demand skilful act
ing and artistic insight. It is a delightful comedy, a beautiful lov
story, a play of strong dramatic situations.
In the atelier role Mr. Gaily ranks
well with the leading romantic actors
of the day. He plays a dual part in
such an excellent manner, making his
changes so quickly thnt there is often
a doubt in many minds that he really
plays both parts. The supporting
company have been chosen for their
fitness to each role, and a careful,
finished und artistic performance is the
result.
Advantage is taken of the picturesque period and locale, which gives
abundant scope for elaborate costumes
and scenery. Mr. Walkei is pleased
to announce tl.e performance of "We
Are King" in Grund Forks, and
recommends the entertainment to
your consideration.
THE CITY COUNCIL
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chambers last Monday evening.
The session was one of the shortest on
record. It only lasted three-quarters
of an hour,and no business of any con-
eequence was transacted. Mayor Mcintosh, Aid. Hardy, Miller and
Woodland were present.
H. W. Warrington, on behalf of
the Kettle Valley line, asked permission to cover the pipe line laid acros s
the Kettle river bridge with a 4-inch
wooden casing and sawdust. Granted.
Thos. Benninger, on behalf of the
co-operative store, asked permission to
put in a trap door in the sidewalk in
front of the building. Granted, provided the work is done under the supervision of the board of works.
i A resolution was passed authorizing the payment by the city of the
poll tax of the members of the volunteer fire department.
All accounts p.-operly endorsed were
ordered paid.
The bills of Chief Savage, for taking Maurice O'Connor to Nelson, and
of W. Hoffman, for police duty, were
referred to the police commissioners.
The bill for taking Mrs. Johnson to
New Westminster was ordered paid,
less 818.
The bill of Wall k Creelman was
ordered paid, provided the chairman
of the board of works endorses it.
The city clerk submitted the quarterly financial statement, which was
referred to the finance committee.
On motion, the council decided to
grant burial permits to the I.O.O.F.
and K. of P. lodges covering that
portion of College street which has
recently been closed to traffic, provided these societies paid for advertising the by-l»w.
On motion of Aid. Miller and Woodland, the matter of stringing the wires
on the South Kootenay Water Power ,-
company's line from the substation to
the city Halts was referred to the
water and light committee, with
power to aet.
The mayor reported that, as far as
he was aware, all forms of gambling
had been abolished in the city,',thc
last nickel-inthe-slot machine having
been put out of business lust Saturday.
The council then adjourned.
International Balloon Race
With every balloon racing record
broken, the second international cup
competition, which began nt St.
Lou is on Monday, ended on Wednesday with the German balloon
Pommern winning lirst prize for
thc longest Might. The race was so
close, however, that the French contestant, which descended at Huberts
ville, N. J., a few miles from thc
Atlantic coast, may possibly be declared the winner after thc official
measurements are completed. The
Pommern landed at Ashbuiy Tark,
N. J., apparently a few mil<B
farther from St. Louis than Huberts-
ville. Another Geiman ballot n
stands third in the race. American
entries finished fourth, fifth in d
eighth, while a third Geiman team
finished sixth, nnd another French
team seventh. Thc one English
balloon entered fell <*bort of tbe
others. The Pommern was piloted
by Oscar Ehrloech, aided by H.
Clayton.

Phonb B74 Ghand Fohks, H.C,
FRIDAY,  OCTOBER 25, 1907
It is a well established axiom that
exalted station, intellectual superi
ority and erudition invariably bring
upon the head of their possessor the
maledictions of those less favored in
these respects. This may explain
why the Conservative press continually tries to associate the Hon. Mr.
Aylesworth with political incidents
of a mora or less unsavory character.
The latest canard, printed in a
Vancouver paper, is that Mr.
Aylesworth attempted to bribe the
electors of Northumberland to support the government in exchange for
a promise to build a new wharf.
No man who knows Mr. Aylesworth
would place the slighest credence in
the story, but unfortunately there
are always to be found some who
rely upon rumor and the views of
olhers, rather than reason the matter out for themselves. It need only
be said that the building of public
works is not in the department of
the midister of justice; he never interferes with other departments, being fully occupied with his own;
neither did he ever offer advantages
to Northumberland in exchange for
their support to a Liberal  member.
It is not always safe to place implicit faith in the opinions of experts,
no matter to what eminence they may
have uttained in their special callings.
liecently, when Mr. Geo. L. Walker,
editor of the Boston Commercial, visited the Boundary country, he volunteered thc statement that, in his
opinion, the permanent price of copper would be between 20c and 22c a
pound, Nearly all the papers of the
district went into ecstasy over this
announcement, But in the face of
all this, copper has been hovering
around Lie during the past two
weeks. The moral to be deducted
from this incident is, that every man
should do hisown thinking. Even experts are not infallible, and the men
who nre posing as such, and are now
predicting 12-cent copper, or less, for
the forthcoming twelve months, may
be as far from the mark as their more
optimistic brothers.
The work of the federal government ofthe past eleven years speaks
for itself. The financial mange*
ment alone deserves especial commendation. During that period the
Liberals have created surpluses
amounting in the aggregate to 801
000,000, and the public debt has
only been increased by 85,000,000.
Mr. Foster, while he was finance
minister, increased tho public debt
of Canada by ^62,000,000. No sane
people, having regard to their own
interests, would take away the man
agement of their affairs from a man
who had produced a surplus of 8.1-1,-
000,000 and hand them over to an
other who, while in charge, created
a now debt of 802,000,000. The
electors of Canada arc well advised
nf the advantages of having at thc
bead of affairs a statesman Buch as
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and they have
neither the desire nor the intention
nf turning the affairs of government
over   to   men   who may cnl! them
selves politicians, but who cannot
claim any other or higher qualification.
The Nelson News, commenting on
the suspension of the Rosslnnd Daily
Minrr, laments the fact that British
Columbia has too many newspapers,
and adds that the public evidently
prefer a large number of poorly edited and badly printed papers to a
few good ones. The. rule works
both ways. The greatest incentive
to the publication of a first-class
newspaper is oompetion; and this is
an age of the survival of the latest.
The Sun directs the attention of
employers of labor to a letter from
tho Hon. It. G. Tatlow, which i.s pub
lished in this issue. Application
forms may be obtained at this olliee.
As a considerable influx of desirable
immigrants is expected next spring,
the ranchers of the Kettle valley
should see that their applications are
sent in early, if they wish to secure
their share of this class of farm   help.

The latest western melodrama that
has gained success in New York and
Chicago is "A Texas Ranger," which
will be seen at tho Grand Forks opera
house on the night of Tuesday, October 29th. The play is making its
first tour of the west and bids fair to
rival all competitors for popularity.
As a piece of dramatic writing the
play is said to be faultless in construction in its entirety—in arrangement
of climaxes, in sequence of events, in
action, a contrast of characters, and in
its finale. The admixture of healthy
up-to-date fun with the tragic elements
of the play is in exact proportion,
pleasing to the theatre-goer who seeks
amusement and diversion no less than
entertainment of the more serious
sort.

PERSONAL
Tells  the Readers  of This
Paper How to Prepare the
Mixture at Home
Mrs. W. H. M. May and children
returned this week from Victoria,
where they have been spending the
past summer.
James Doyle, assistant superintendent of the Great Northern railway,
has been spending a few .dnys in the
city during the present week.
\V. M. Doull, J. D. Campbell, Geo.
McCabe and John Kavanugh attended the assizes in Greenwood this week,
being summoned as petit jurors.
Now is the time when the doctor
gets busy, and the patent medicine
manufacturers reap the harvest, unless great care is taken to dress
warmly and keep the feet dry. This
is the advice of an old eminent authority, who says that rheumatism
and kidney trouble weather is here, !
and also tells what to do in case of
an attack.
Get from any good prescription
pharmacy one-half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion, one ounce Campound
Kurgon, three ounces of Compound
Syrup Sarsaparilla Mix by shaking
in a bottle and take a teaspoonful
after each  meal and at bedtime.
Just try this simple homemade
mixture at the first sign of rheumatism, or if your back aches or you feel
that the kidneys are not acting just
right. This is said to be a splendid
kidney regulator, and almost certain
remedy for all forms of rheumatism,
which is caused by uric acid in the
blood, which the kidneys fail to filter
out. Any one can easily prepare this
nt home and at small cost.
Druggists in this town and vicinity,
when shown the prescription, stated
that they can eithjr supply these ingredients, or, if   the reiders prefer,
Aid. Hardy returned the latter
part of last week from a fortnight's
visit to Chicago, where he had been
called by the serious illness ol his
mother. He "tates that Mis. Hardy's
condition is considerably improved.
THE BOUNDARY DISTRICT
The smallpox quarantine at Phoenix was raised on Tuesday last. There
has been no new cases for sixteen
days, and at present there are only
three cases in quarantine De. J, D.
McLean, the health officer, makes this
announcement.
The third furnace at the Mother
Lode smelter has been repaired and
put in condition to be blown in ut any
time.
Aid. Horner made a  business  Hip
to Nelsou during the present week
A large force of Itn.lii.ns was at
work nt Midway last week engaged in
loading up the steel in the materials
yard for shipment to Fernie, where
there is a shortage of steel for the
grade work already completed. This
steel was originally intended for use
between Keremeos and Princeton,
Mr. Chas. Hay returned on Friday
last from an extended visit to Alberta, where two of his sons are engaged in ranching and  stock raising.
Up to the present time nothing hns
been dime in the matter of appointing
a postmaster at Midway to fill the vacancy caused by the death of tho late
E. A. Haiti. The fact that a vacancy
exists appears to have been forgotten
bv the authorities.

James McArdle returned on Saturday last from a business trip to the
American Okanagan district.
P. D. McDonald, of tho Queens,
attended the assizes in Greenwood
this week as a witness in the La

THE BOUNDARY DISTRICT
An analysis of Boundary ores,
made in New York, is as follows: Silica, 38 to 40 per cent; sulphur 3 to 4
and 5; iron, 15 to 17; lime, 18 to 22;
alumina, 6 to 7; magnesia, 6 to 7;
copper, 22 to 28 pounds per ton; gold,
.06 ozs.; silver, 40 ozs.
Madden, 0. V. O'Donnell, H.J.
Fitzgerald, F. Rudolph and D. B.
Scully, of Chicago, and W. S. Mucy
of Phoenix. J. D. Spence was appointed solicitor for the coinpany.
Something over 800 tons of silver-
gold ore was shipped during the fiscal
year from the Providence mine.
The annual meeting of the shareholders of the Providence Mining Co.,
Ltd., was held in Greenwood last
week, Mark F. Madden, of Chicago,
attending and presiding. Others present were Charles Kinney, J. D.
Spence, Will Madden and W. S.
Macy. The annual report wa« submitted and received, and the election
of directors resulted in the returning
of the old board, with one exception.
A resolution was introduced and
passed, authorizing the directors to
issue $50,000 in bix per cent bonds
for the purpose of sinking to the
1000-foot level. The following are
now the directors of the company:
M. F. Madden, Dr. F. Byrnes, M. S.
W. Chessier, of Eholt, was made
defendant in an action brought before
Magistrate McMynn at Greenwood
last week by S. McOrmond, also of
Eholt. The plaintiff claimed that
Chessier entered on his mineral claim
and had cut timber. Chessier admitted cutting the timber, but claimed
that he had done so through a mistake concerning the lines which
marked off the claim. Whether the
rights of a holder of a mineral claim
include ownership of timber upon it
is a point that has never been tested
before in this district. On account of
this fuct the magisrrate imposed no
penalty, but staled emphatically that
the defendant had no right whatever
to enter on the claim and cut timber.
Nor could he remove the timber already cut thereon. This case is important for the community because it
touches a piactice all too general. It
clearly establishes the fact that the
mnn who enters upon another man's
mineral claim to cut and draw wood
therefrom is guilty of theft. Judge
Hallett appeared for the plaintiff; J.
D. Spence for defendant.
A young man named Vina Carlson
died of typhoid pneumonia in the
general hospital at Phoenix on Monday, the 14tb inst., and was buried
on the following Thursday. Eeceased
was a native of Filmland, and a
stranger in this district.
A meeting of the Cascade Water,
Power k Light Coinpany, Ltd., is
called at Nelson for November 2nd to
ratify the transfer of the assets of the
corporation to the South Kootenay
Water Power company, the latter supplying the large mines and smelters
of the Boundary nud Rossland with
electric power. The Cascade plant is
uot now in commission, being held as
a leserve.
