Grand Forks, B. C, Friday. August 30, 1907.

ON TO PRINCETON
Great    Northern    Resumes
Operations   in  the
Okanagan
C. P. R. Passenger   Trains
Will Soon Run Through
the City
Railway construction work is be
resumed at once in the Boundary
and Okanagan districts. During
the first part of the week the positive statement was made by the
Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway officials that grading operations would be commenced immediately on the section between
Keremeos and Princeton. This announcement has since been confirmed by •TOS arrival of the contractors on the scene of action. It is
understood to be the intention of the
Great iNorthern company to rush
this section to completion at as
oarly a date as possible, and as the
work is mostly of a light character, it
is quite possible that trains may yet
be running into Princeton by the
first of the year.
On the-Kettle Valley line grading
on the twentieth mile, above Lynch
creek, is nearing completion, and it
is not likely that any new ground
will be broken until after the visit
of the Toronto officials of the road,
who are expected to arrive here
early next month. Steel will be
laid to Lynch creek in a few days,
and the ballasting crew is keeping
close behind the tracklayers. As
soon as the roud is fin shed to that
point, a daily train Bervice will he
inaugurated between this city and
the northern terminus of the road. It
will leave here in the morning and
return in the evening, thus giving
prospectors, hunter or others all day
in the upper country.
The renewed activity of the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern in the
Okanagan has apparently awakened
the officials of ihe Candian Pacific
railway to the necessity of a shorter
route to the Pacific if that road is
to compete wilh the Great Northern
for the. coast traffic. It now appears
certain that the recent rumors that
the Midway & Vernon railway project would be in connection with the
Canadian Pacific had some basis.
Last week William R. Morris, of
London, England, accompanied by
It. A. Banbridge, of Vancouver,
divisional engineer of the Canadian
Pacific, and Robert Wood, the
father of Greenwood and one of the
promoters of the Midway & Vernon,
made a tour of the Boundary cities.
Mr. Morris was looking up statistics
and data regarding the Boundary
and what it would likely consume
of the products of the Okanagan
district. On Friday the party met
L. M. Rice, an engineer of Seattle,
at Greenwood, and started over the
surveyed line of the proposed road,
taking notes all the way to Vernon,
a distance of 150 miles. Since the
stoppage of work on construction,
nearly two years ago, when about
ten miles of grading had been done
en the line west of Midway, the promote™, Ralph Smailes and partners,
have been working on the plan to
interest capital. It is now suid that
the Englebert syndicate, an aggregation of English capitalists, is prepared to finance the road if the report is favorable. This syndicate
commissioned Sir Richard Fox, an
eminent engineer of London, to
make the report, and Mr. Morris is
acting for him. White & Co., financial men of New York, who have
had the matter in hand for some
months, are interested in the syndicate, and with the $11,000 per mile
cash subsidy, granted by the Dominion and provincial governments,
the financing of the road would
seem an easy matter.
The Kettle Valley line moved into
its new Third street station this
week. The building is of a fine exterior appearance, and commodious
quarters are provided inside for railway employee's, passengers, express,
baggage and freight. The building
partitioned off into four rooms—
a large waiting room, ticket office,
and baggage and freight rooms.
H. W. Warrington, chief engineer
of the Kettle Valley line, made the
statement to Tbe Bun man this
week that the Canadian Pacific railway passenger trains would soon
commence running through tbe city
over the Kettle Valley line tracks.
School Opens
The Grand Forks public school
opened last Monday with the following staff of instructors: Principal
and first division, W. H. M. May;
second division, Miss Bruce; third,
Miss L. Chalmers; fourth, Miss
Olding; fifth. Miss Inglis; sixth, Miss
A. Hay; seventh, Miss Dalby. The
personnel of the staff is practically
the same as last year, the only new
member being Miss A. Hay, of Vancouver, who was engaged to fill the
vacancy ciused by the resignation
of Miss Hewton. The enrolment on
the first day was ahout 218. This
number will be materially increased
aB the season advances. Tbe 5C0I
umbia building is not used at present, but it is quite probable that it
will have to be called into requisition again wben the pupils from the
surrounding ranches commence to
attend.
The high school also opened on
the same day, with Mr. R. D, Ful-
lerton in charge. There were fifteen
students present the first day, and it
is stated that there are four or five
more to report.
Low Rates to Interstate Fair
Lower rates than usual will be
granted for tho Interstate Fair this
year, and more different railroads will
grant them. All the railrnuds entering Spokane, including the various
branches of the Northern Pacilic,
Great Northern, S. P. k N., the O. It.
k N., Spokano International, and the
Inland Empire Electric System will
also agree to grant a rate of a fare
and a third from Septembor 21st to
October 2nd, all tickets to be good
until the close of the fair. In addition to these low rates, each road will
sell tickets for ono fare on certain
days to be designated later. This
means that one can go to the fair any
day for two-thirds of tho ordinary expense for jailway transportation, and
by choosing the time of going it is
possible to go for one-half this expense.
NEWS OF THE CITY
Former Boundary Promoter
Involved in a Portland
Failure
City Council Considered Power Ouestion at a Special
Meeting
The Oregon Savings bank of Portland, Ore., of which W. C. Morris,
who formerly cut quite a swath in
Stevens and Ferry counties, Washington, and who is well known to all the
old-timers of this city, is the head,
closed its doors last week. The report states there is but little hope for
the many depositors of recovering anything from the wreck. This was particularly a bank of small depositors,
promising i per cent Interest ou deposits, and advertising and in other
ways working to secure the deposits
of working people. Ten years ago
Morris had his shingle out as a lawyer
at Marcus, From that place he moved
to Republic, where he branched out
as a promoter. AVith John Manly,
then a resident of this city, Morris
promoted the Kettle Valley lines, and
had the call on Toronto money. Then
came a time when Toronto capitalists
asked what had been done. Tliere was
a charge lodged against him of using
funds, and extradition was tulked of.
No doubt if it had not been for the
intervention of the then prosecuting
attorney of Ferry county, who threatened confiscation of the railroad on
account of it being owned by foreign
capital, Morris would not have gotten
out of the scrape so easy. Instead the
raised club persuaded the Canadian
investors to pay Morris, it is reported,
between 825,000 and 650,000 for his
interest in the enterprise. With this
capital he went to Portland and
started the bunk.
A special meeting of the city cou 11-
cil was held Monday afternoon for
the purpose of considering the new
contract with tho West Kootenay
Power k Light compony for |K>wer.
Some slight modifications were mode.
It is understood that Mr. Campbell is
holding out for further concessions in
the way of exclusive rights to supply
electric power for irrigating purposes
both inside anil outside the city limits.
It is expected thut he will arrive in
the ci*y today, unci will meet tho
council ut a speeiul session this afternoon.    The mayor was ulso requested
to crrrespondeut with the provincial
government,and make an effort to have
an expert 011 irrigation sent to this
vulley in order to obtain reliable data
on the subject.
The Juvenile llostoniaii opera coin-
puny gave an acceptable presentation
of the ''Gipsoy Girl" at the opera
house Friday evening but it is doubtful if anyone really onioyed tho performance, because ull those present
must have realized that the proper
place for children of such tender years
is with their parent* or in school. The
little uutors were very clever, however, und with the exception of one or
jarring incidents, the program wus
smoothly gone through. The song,
'The Bird on Nellie's Hat,'' was
risque, and had no place before the
assembled audience.    Sung by a little
child, it grated on sensative nerves,
und wus ol'jeo'ioimble in the extreme.
The allusions to local events mude, of
course, a decided hit, although some
of them were meaningless. The en-
tertuinment netted the Athletic association about 87.*).
Owing to the rush of other business
last week, The Sun neglected to state
that Gus Parker and George McCabe
huve become expert trick motorits.
While out fur a spin, they made an
effort to loop the loop over the C.P.R.
bridge by running down the steep
bank on this side of the river and up
the one on the opposite side. The attempt was only partially successful;
but they had the pleasure of riding
under tho car for a short distance,
while the wheels were revolving in
air. They say the sensation of being
human Hies was exhilerating in the
extreme. Fortunately they escaped
without being encumbered by subsequent doctors' bills.
I. H. Stephens, manager of the
People's Cooperative Society, Ltd.,
will leave Calgary next week to open
a eo-operative store in Grand Forks,
B. C. When Mr. Stephens took the
management of the Calgary society, it
was in bod shape, but through hard
work and business ability he brought
it to its present flourishing condition.
A substantial dividend on members'
purchases has just been paid for the
past half year. The directors of the
society have appointed A. It. Smart,
who has been first clerk under Mr.
Stephens, to succeed him as manager,
and every confidence is felt that the
Calgary society will continue to expand and prosper.—Calgary Morning

Six weeks ago J. F. Wilson and
family left this city for Ihe Okanagan country with the intention of
making their future home there.
Before leuvinj; they listed their property here with u rea I estate firm.
Yesterday they returned, and withdrew the pr iperty from the market,
as thev arc satisfied this place is
good enough for them. This little
tale points a moral.
E. Rogers, of the Ideal Amusement
show, which is advertised to appear
in this citv next week, was sentenced
in Nelson Monday morning by Police
Magistrate Crease to thirty days'
hard labor, without thc option of a

of the members of his troupe, on Saturday morning last.
The Kettlo Vulley Fish and Game
association gives p'omlse of doing
things. The provincial game law provides for a penalty of 850 for the
Illegal killing of game, one-halt of
which goes to the party  laying  in*

for Information that will enable it to
secure u conviction.

FRIDAY,  AUGUST 30,  1907
The Conservative press has given
very extensive circulation to the political tour now being made by Mr.
II. L. Borden, loader of the opposi
tion, and there has been aroused a
certain amount of interest in the
platform which he would present for
the consideration of the electors of
Canada. This arises primarily from
the fact that for several sessions past
public time has been wasted by the
opposition in attempts to discredit
the government of Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. It was expected that the
leader of the opposition would at
least formulate a distinct policy,
would Buggest something attractive
in place of that which he desireB the
people to surrender, advance something in justification of the methods
of innuendo, the f ivorite weapons of
the opposition, give some specific instance of the wholesale graft and corruption which have been charged
against the government, enunciate a
constructive policy. It may be also
that a modicum of interest was
aroused on the occasion of a public
declaration of a. man who seeks
to be prime minister of Canada, to
know wbat reasons would be submitted to the people sufficiently
weighty to cause them to withdraw
their confidence from an administration which can boast a proud record
of great deeds done for Canada, of
which the prevailing prosperity and
contentment are the visible signs.
Whatever the reasons which contributed to the interest in Mr. Borden's
opening speech, it may safely be said
that general disappointment and
chagrin are the results. The mountain has labored and brought forth
a mouBe. The leader of the opposition has presented what by courtesy
may be regarded as a "platform,"
but which is better described as an
academic thesis on moribund parliamentary debates.
The Rochdale Association
The Rochdale CoOporative Association will be ready to do business on
or about the 9th of September. It is
the intention of the association to
start with, a complete line of groceries,
and add to their stock ea<:h month

public with everything that is needed

opportunity of thanking the present
shareholders for the liberal support
they have given us in starting the
co-operative movement in the Boundary country. We also solicit the patronage of every person (mule or female) over 10 yenrs, and Urge them to
become shareholders as well ns pur-
choiieds, so us to enublo them to participate in the dividends. The shares

We huve adopted the system of the
Rochdale Co-Operative Association in
Englund, which was established in
1844, and has grown into one of the
largest businesses in tho world, in one
yenr doing a $500,000,000 business,
with a not profit of $48,000,000.
Under this system the goods which
cost 33J per cent to handle from the
producer to the consumer has been reduced to 6 per cont. We do a strict'y
oash business, and every dollar is judiciously spoilt and controlled by a se
lent board of trustees.   All   we. usk  s
that you read our by-laws, see the inside of our store and get posted on the
Rochdale co-operative system. Then
you will be convinced that co-operation (which the Governor-General of
Canada so strenuously endorses) is the
very thing you need.

A Question Often Asked
Why so many people feel worse after taking pills than before? Trouble
is that drastic pills are used. No
remedial act'on is obtained, the bowels are irritated and dreadful constipation follows. In using Dr. Hinil-
ton's Pills you ure scarcely conscious
of having taken medicine. Although
very mild, Dr. Hamilton's Pills do
regulate the bowels, stimulate normal
action of the glmi'ls.uncl create neither
nausea, griping nor violent action.

branch of the E. T. bank, by his Mid
way friend last week.
Mrs. Frank P. Bucklesa, formerly
a resident of Grand Forks, was found
dead near her residence in Greenwood
last week, heart failure being probably the cause of her death. She had
not been in the best of health for
some time, but latterly had been improving. Deceased leaves a family of
two sons and two daughters.
The Phoenix city council has de
cided to ask the government for a por
tion of the 2 per cent tax on the ores
from the mines in that city.
The Phoenix city council does not
know who is the third member of the
police and licensing board, and will
seek information on the subject from
the government.
Four surveys have been run by the
Great Northern engineers to the
Granby company's Gold Drop mine,
ond still another is likely to be made.
. Road Foreman Spraggett has recently improved the wagon road below
Phoenix. Probably more traffic goes
over that piece of road than over any
other road in the Boundary district
outside the cities.
John Boyle, well known in tho
Boundary, after spending some time
in eastern Canada, is now in Vancouver, where ho expects to settle
down in the drug business. Mrs.
Boyle is still in Toronto.

nuin another year, and he consented.
Dan McLean, of Greenwood, who
has been in pool health for some time,
died suddenly at the city hall in that

diowned from the Yale-Columbia
drive last spring, and has been de-
sp.indent aud in poor health for many
weeks.
S. P. Dixon has returned to Greenwood with his Nova Scotia bride, who
was Miss Anderson, of Boylston,
Guysboro county. The huppy couple
will make Greenwood their future
home.
H. R. Stevenson, C. P. R. agent at
Midway, has returned to his duties
after spending his holidays at the
coast. His father, after 42 years'
service as superintendent of roads,
has resigned. He has been longer in
the service than nny other ollicer of
tho government, having commenced
in 1865 when British Columbia was a
crown colony.
Tuesday evening Grand Chancellor
Hammar, of the grand domain of
British Columbia, visited Phoenix
lodge, K of P. A number of knights
from .Midway and Greenwood wont up

A report comes from Cascade to the
effect that thut town is about to experience a new era of prosperity. It is
stated that Gao. L. Stoeker, the individual owner of the townsite, which
contains about a thousand aeies of
bench land, is at present negotiating
with an American company for the
sale of the townsite, the price asked
being understood to be 850,000. In
the event of the deal being closed, the
new owners will utilize the Cascade
falls for irrigating purposes, and will
irrigate not only the towns 11, but all
the large extent of lands lying between Cascade and Laurier station on
the Great Northern railway, where it
is estimated several thousand acres of
fine orchard land can be made. It is
hinted that it is this fruit land and
the irrigation plan that is the real inducement for the buying of the Cascade townsite, more than the real
value of the land as a townsite.
