One Vote DeciaeBthe Mayoralty Contest in This
Grand Forks yesterday established a record for a close
vote in a mayoralty contest,
Mr. G. M. Fripp being elected
mayor by a majority of one.
The contest was quite animated, all the candidates
working vigorously in their
respective interests, which
undoubtedly accounts for the
heavy vote, the total number
of ballots cast being 253, as
against 222 last year.
The members of the old
council in the field for re
election appeared to be determined to regain office, and
during the last stages of the
camgaign the provincial political machine was set in motion
on a small scale in the interest of the defeated mayoralty
candidate. With the exception of Mr. Taylor, however,
every member ofthe old board
seeking re-election went down
to defeat, plainly indicating
that the citizens thought it
was time for a change.

The new council is regarded
as being composed of the
strongest body of men that
have yet administered the affairs of the city. Mr. Fripp
ifiade a good record as chief
executive during his previous
administrations in 1008 and
1000. Mr. Woodland mado
one of the best finance ministers the city has ever had.
Mr. Manly discharged the
duties of chairman of the
water and light committee
when he was a member of the
council, and Mr. Smith has
also held the chairmanship, of
an important committee, rhe
other members are substantial citizens of community.
The school trustees elected
are all good and progressive
men. and will undoubtedly develop good records.

pursuing him beyond the political grave. 3.HE SUJf. GBAND FOHKS, BRITISH COLUMBIA.
Dressed in Man's rjitfiiirg, Mrs Marguerite rlob>» travels 31500 Miles
Mrs. Marguerite Roby has returned to London after a 3500
mile journey in the Congo. She traveled In man's clothing, and was attended ouly by a constantly changing
company ot lialt-^tali-ced blacks.
Sirs. Roby, who Is still suffering
from lho affects ot tropical Illness,
ilesc.'ljed her adventure ln an Interview, •
She was frequently descried liy her
porters and guides and left stranded.
Sho narrowly escaped death ln a
eharge made by a herd of wild but-
I'aloa. She shot four of the animals
In less than twenty minutes, when all
her attendant*! hatl fled.
In many districts she was the first
white woman to bo seen hy tho natives. On one occasion sho had a lively hour or two ln a wild, almost barbaric, part of the tower Cougo. She
had only one black boy lo escort her
and . ho sat down hy tho side of a
narrow road.
Everything was still, Mrs. Rohy
said, and the country around seemed
as lonely and uninhabited ns n long
forgotten graveyard. In a moment
two or throe thousand savage-eyed
black men, with spears and clubs, appeared as if from the ground, and
surrounded mn. The mon were repulsively ugly, and fearsome streaks
of brilliant, red paint marked out the
lines of their eyos and mouths.
The chief demanded that I should
stay in his village, but 1 refused.
Fortunately 1 had my revolver nnd several guns with me, and tbat Bcemed
to terrify tho most ovil-looking of my
unwelcome visitors but it was a long
tlmo before I could quite placate
them. The chief I heard later had
sounded the war drum that night and
had called his people from miles
around to see lho white woman dance,
but fortunately foe the audience I did
not attend.
Mrs, Roby has a very poor opinion
of the natives Ot the lower Congo.
Sho declares that tho missionaries
have spoiled them. Their insolence
is absolutely abominable, sho said.
I won't work, they will say, and if yoi
(ouch me I shall make a report to
the magistrate.
My experience has taught me tha!
the mission boy is tie biggest roguo,
thief, and murderer, even that one
can find.
This is the second journey, Mrs.
itohy has undertaken in too Congo
and in all she has covered sonic 8ti0*)
miles through some of the wildest
and most isolated purts of thc coun1

Englishwoman     Places      Proverbial
Father  of  Evil   In  Favorable
A novel nnd entirely new
conception of satan was an intcres*.-
itig feature ot tho Hon. Sybil Amherst's dramatized version of the Uoo.t
ot Job, performed by the Norwich
Players at the King's Hull, Covent
Garden, on November 28,
Instead ot following the popular notion, satan was represented as au
Angel of Trial.
Many learned professors have Indorsed this theory, reading the Bool:
of Job, ns meaning that satan only acted as a judge of tho evildoer, Instead
of being tlio Evil One himself.
Miss Amhirst's reading of Job is
that satan is depicted as one of tho
Sons of God--or the Elohim.
"He I3 represented," said Miss Amherst yesterday, "as tho Angel ot
Trial or tho Accuser. His function la
to search out and weigh the deeds o,"
men, to see if their service to God
is perfetly disinterested or not.
It is only iu later years that satan
was thought of as nu evildoer, probably owing to the misunderstanding
of his function as judge.
Among scholars who are interested
in this theory, and who will probably
attend the performance, are I'rof. A,
S. Pealto, of Manchester University!
Canon Kennett, regius professor of
Hebrew, Cambridge; Canon Driver,
regius professor of Hebrew, Oxford;
and Prof. C. M. Montlflore, who edited tlie Bible for home reading.      \
Tho drama aroused Intense ciithus-1
iaam among church students wben
produced last year at Norwich, and
Miss Amherst received great praise
for hev beautiful and delicate rendering of the book for stage purposes. It
has received the approval of tho Bishop of London.
No objection ca:i be taken to Uie
performance on the ground of want
of reverence. The Divinity is represented by a Voice.

through nn elevator, it matters no*, whether n Government elevatbr or
one run by an elevutor company or individual owner, does not i add
the loi.t fraction of a cent to tbe value of .ho. grain, nor does It give
the farmer any better chnnce ot marketing it to advantage than when
loaded direct on cars. But loading direct jn cars cuts out ln the first
place iLe elevator charge, which Is usually lfte. per bushel, say
J17.5.1 on a thousand bushel car. The elevator dockage li else
levcd- this may bo worth more or loss, depending partly on how ditty
ihe grain ls, but mostly on tho farmer's ability In holding hia own
with the elevator man taking it ln. On the average the dochage
may le considered worth 3c per tushel to the farmer, or say $30 per
cm- of 1,000 bushels. Whon grain Is load.d direct Into car over ths *
Loading Platform, ths farmer knowo for sire that It ls hli very own
grain that wlU he graded hy the inspector, ar.d that he will without
doubt recelve.tho full and exact outturn of his car at whichever terminal elevator it is unloaded: for sll grain 's unloaded from the care
under government superlntendance and weighed by properly qualified
Roveruntent weighmen under tho rules anl rupervtslon of the Domta"

the boundaries of tho notorious Seven

bound volumes ou a variety of subjects, as well an one or two novels.
Credited with being au exceedingly

Sho knew exactly what she wanted
when she wont into tho bookshop, and

Sho purchased several volumes,

The^eeble, Wasted Nerves Were Restored and Revitalized by
Nervous prostration is a terrible disease to all who understand its symptoms. At times the sufferer feeht
comparatively well, but with slight
exertion the dreadfttl helplessness returns and all strength und vitality
seems to leave tho system.
This letter from Mrs. Martin very
well describes tho terrible condition
ln which many a sufferer finds herself. Sho also tells how she regained health and strength by using Dr.
Chase's Nervo Food after all other
treatment had failed.
Mrs. Edwin Martin. Ayer's Cliff,
Quo., writes:—"Hefore I begun using
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food I was In a
terrible condition from nervous exhaustion and prostration. Dizzy
spells would come over mo and I
would fall to thu floor. The weakness waB bo great that I could not so
much as sweep lho floor without fainting, but tho nerve food helped mo
after the "doctors failed. It has done
wonders in building my nervous system. I cun tlo my own housework now

medicine has' been a God-send to me.
I think it is the best of medicines."

New  Light Thrown   Upon the  Mys-
terlous Illness of the Little
The Czar's eight year oltl heir,
hla only sou, ls recovering from his
Illness, but the mystery maintained
by the RusBlan court and police dally
The report of an attempt on his life
in tho imperial yacht Stundurt Is now
given ln Paris with circumstantial do-
tail. Tho explanation ot tho admiral's suicide, followed by tho attempted suicide of a girl with whom ho had
relations, ls said to be that tlie girl,!
a revolutionary, used her Influence
with tho admiral to secure the pro-1
seuce of n'nihilist in tho crew. The
other conflicting uccounts of the illness or accident of the czar's son ascribe it to a fall from a potty, or a
bicycle, or a spar In thc yacht, an
accident in his bath, a hemorrhage,
kidney disease, or peritonitis, lu-
Ilamatlon of the meinbrano lining
of tho lnlestlnes.
Tho story accepted here as truo is
that the prlnco was shot with a
Browning iilstol, nnd he owed Mb
life to tlio fact that when he saw an
Individual approaching with a pistol
pointed at him ho attempted to escape. But his assailant was too quick
and as tho startled boy turned to one
side he lircd and tlte bullet inflicted
a deep wound in tho lowor part of
the abdomen.
In the confusion the person who had
fired slid down a rope over t.he side
of tho Stanilart mid escaped either
In a boat or by swimming ashore.
Ho has succeeded in getting out of
Russia. lt was through his con
fession that tlle attempt became
known outside court circlos.
Admiral Cliagin was not on board
the yacht when the prince was
wounded. The role playotl 'by the
girl student, Helen Soqoloff, who tried
to commit suicide after the admiral's
suicide and to whom he left a sum
of money tn his will, Is moro serious
thnn has been hinted nt. and In view
of tier responsibility lu the matter lt
is perhaps uot surprising tliot she attempted her life.
It ls necessary to recall that In
1S82, the yoar following tho assassination Ot the. Czar Alexander II. by a
bomb, a military revolutionary party
was formed in St, Petersburg, with!
tranches at Cronstudt. Nk-oluk-ff. and
Sebastopol. It hie! ns Us chief Colonel Asclienbreuner, with whom were
ntsochitod Lieutenants Huron Strom-
berg and Suohanoft. The famous nl-
lilllat, Mario Vera I-'Iguer, was also a
member, Suchanoir. ntler being
tried for complicity in u nihilist plot,
was shot, and Marie Fignt-r and Colonel Asclitiiibrenner were condemned
lo death, but their seutences were
commuted to twenty years' detention
in a fortress.
The military organisation to which
theso revolutionaries belonged was
disbanded, but lt In holicved tliat lt
wns recently re-formed. Helen Uo-
koloff, with whom Admiral Cliagin
Was In love, is reported tn have been
one of lis emissaries. Thanks to her
Influence With him, the unsuspecting
officer was made use of to facilitate
•ho access of revolutionaries to the
Imperial yaoht, anil the attempt on
the czar's sua was rendered poaslblo.

Thk city election is over, and the
citizens are to he congratulated nn
the personnel of the new council
and school hoard. We think these
bodies are now composed of the
mnst capable men that could possibly have been selected, and The Sun
takes considerable pride in having
been instrumental in stirring the
ratepayers to take a keener interest
in municipal matters. The new
council by no means starts its administration in smooth waters. It
bas many weighty problems to
solve, and if it solves them successfully, ss we believe it will, it will
earn the everlasting gratitude of tbe
citizens of Grand Forks.

Grand Forks Wins Again    I
Tbe flrst hockey game this season
on the local ice was played Monday
night between Grand Forks and
Phoenix, and resulted in a victory
for the home team by a score of 7
goals to 4. Tbere was a large attendance of local and Phoenix enthusiasts. The game was remarkably fast and free from rude plays.
During the flrst period neither
side scored; at the end of the second
period the score waB 4 to 2 in favor
of the home team, and in the third
period Orand Forks scored three
goals and Phoenix two.

"Oh, that's French and means
that she waa horn Black."
"Born black!" exclaimed the

"Yes. 'Nee'is French for'born.'"
"Well, it ain't so," ejaculated the
old man, jumping up and shakine
his fist. "I knew her parents, and
they were as while as anybodyjthat
ever lived, and I'll write to that editor about it."
Before he started off, however, the

Wonderfully Improved
True to promise, the publishers
of The Family Herald and Weekly
Star of Montreal have vastly improved that already great paper during Ihe past few months. It is said
several new editors have heen added
to the staff, and still greater improvements are contemplated. The
beautiful picture. "Mother's Treasures," is in great demand. Everyone who sees it wonders how such 5
picture can be given wilh .uch a

Newspaper Law
1 A postmaster is requited to give
notice by letter (returning the paper
does not answer the law) when iksub-
scriber does not take his paper uut of
the postoffice, and state the reason for
its not being taken. Any neglect to
do ho makes the postmaster responsible to the publisher for payments.
2. If any person orders bis paper
discontinued he must pay all arrearages, or the publishers may continue
to send it until payments are made,
and collect the whole amount whether
the paper is taken from the office or
not. There can be no legal discontinuance until payment is made.
3. Any person who takes a paper
out of the post office, whether directed
to his namo or not, or whether he has
subscribed or not, is responsible for
the pay.
4. If a subscriber orders his paper
stopped and the publisher continues to
send it, the subscriber is bound to
pay for it if he takes it out of the
post office. This proceeds upon the
ground that a man must pay for what
he uses.
5. The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers or periodicals from the post office or removing,
leaving them uncalled for, is prima
facie evidence of intentional fraud.

How Much of Your Road Money u
Spent in Filling Rub?
T If the millions of dollars that have been spent repairing worn-
out, washed-out streets and roads had been used to build
more miles of good highways, fewer farmers would now be
wasting valuable time and money taking "round-about" routes
to town.
piRST cost of an ordinary dirt or macadam road is usually
only a "starter." The cost of upkeep soon equals that
first cost and there is always an ever-increasing annual expense
fot repairs. The worst feature of it is that tuch a road is
never a really first-class highway.
TN estimating the cost of a road you should include the ex-
pense of keeping it in good condition for at least twenty
years. If you don't, you're figuring on the first payment for

Former Grand Former Resident Threatens Life of
Premier McBride
The following dispatch from Spokane is nf considerable local interest:
"At the request of Colin S. Camp
bell, supeiintendent pf provincial
police, the local authorities are
searching for William Milsom, who
is accused by theCanadian authorities of sending threatening letters
from here to Sir Richard McBride,
premier of British Columbia. Milsom is believed by tbe police to be
mentally unbalanced."
The letter was received in Vi .toria
last week by the premier and bore
the signature, William Milsom,
held a Spokane, WaBh., postmark
on the envelope, and read as follows: »
"I write this as a challehge to
you, also the people of the Presby
terian church and the people of the
Church of England, for having accused me falsely, both by word and
deed, and while the Scotchman likes
to be looked upon as the hero uf the
British nation, I can prove that he
has acted tbe coward. So I write
asking both you and your countrymen to don yonr kilts, for I wish
to meet you fair and square, and I
will prove to you that it is mit God's
will that the b g Scotchman should
have his revenge. For vengeance is
mine, saith the Lord. And I will re
pay. You attacked me becaua■: you
thought I was weak and ignorant.
But I wiith to prove to you that the
one who is for us is more than all
they which are against us and that
justice does and shall rule the world
I remain yours very truly, William
The letter was placed in Ihehandt,
of Superintendent Colin S. Camp-
hell, of the provincial police force,
wbo has communicated with thn
Spokane Iorce, asking them to
search for the man. Nothing is
known of him by the Victoria police. From the character of the letter the police believe that the writer
of it is insane.
Oltl-tiniiis   of Grand  Forks say
that Milsom formerly lived here,
nnd thit he is still the owner of a
lot on Bridge street. He removed
from the city some years ago, and
lived for a short time in a small
town on Vancouver island. Then
he returned to Ihe citv, but did not
remain long, Smut* who knew him-
reiiarded him ns mentally unbalanced. He used to be in the habit
of provisioning his room, and then
lock himself in for weeks at a time.
This is probably his present method
of eluding the police. Other citizens say that a few yeurs ago he
went violently insane, nnd they
supposed that at present he was con-
lined in some asylum,
