Semi-Weekly—91.00 Per Year In Advance
Grand Forks Union Celebrate
First Anniversary of Eight-
hour Day
Evening of Good Cheer and
and an  Excellent Program
panied by Wm. George on the piano,
Tom Duffy then made his cremona
talk. Tom has a way of making his instrument talk that invariably induces 	
ones toes to sit up and listen. Sever Greenwood Smeltermen Out
al persons present were accordingly j
obliged to let their feet respond.    Mr.      00   Strike  for  a  Higher

One of the most sociable and cheery
crowds of men ever gathered together
in our city at a snioker was without a
doubt the one at the opera house on
Tuesday night. Stupendous preparations had been made by the loeal
Miners' Union for some time to celebrate the first anniversary of their
victory in securing an jeight-hour day
at the Granby smelter, and the members are to be congratulated on the
success they achieved in making the
event so delightful. The city band
had been secured for the occasion and
lelighted the crowd with a repertoire
of choice selections throughout the
evening. Happy Hooligan, with his
Irish brogue; Tom Duffy, with his
cremona, Walter Dudney, of pianist
fame; Barry, the Kentucky Colonel;
Gilmore, who sings better than he
talks; Olaf Sona, the ginger toe man;
Mullen and Bunting, the men with
the dukes; Scotty's curly-haired dog
and several others of note were there.
There was absolutely no excuse for
anyone to go off mad, hungry of thirsty, as there *as plenty of entertainment, plenty to eat, and non-intoxi
eating beverages flowed as freely and
as smoothly as the picturisque Kootenay. Everybody hail come to have a
good time and they had it. Throngh
the thick smoke that hovered in midair like an *kpril storm cloud this fact
was easily discerned in the many smiling faces.
Chas. Bunting, president, opened
the program with a few well chosen
remarks. He expressed satisfaction
in the Union's f-uccess in having secured an eight hour work day and also
in the fact that the Western Federation of Miners was considered 'taf- be!|
one of the largest and strongest or
ganizations in the world. He then an-
nunced the initial number of the en-
t'l'tainiueiit, a song, by Stendall SB-
titled "Tell Me Why, Litttle Girl,"
which was sung in g<H>d voice. Mr.
Stendall responded to an encore with
"Among the Clover and the Bees."
Mr. Bishop followed with a bass solo
in his usual pleasing style. "Annie
Laurie," that oltl favorite, was rendered iii an impressive manner by Scotty
G.hnore, the band accompaniment
unking it one of thc most appreciated
numbers of the evening. "The Man
in the Overalls" was sung by Chu
Bunting and made a hit, everybody
joining in the chorus. A three round
boxing contest was then announced
between Wm. Bunting aud Billy Mullen, of P. E. I., champion of the
northwest. The bout was a lively
one and the best yet witnessed in the
city, A selection by the band follow-
ed, a popular ballad by Ed Miller,
and then came Hooligan. He' hud
lost none of his original charm and
with his inimitable "Hooligan," "I'm
a Man You Don't Meet Every Day"
and "Don't Tread on the Tail' of Me
Coat" made himself eligible to a huge
hunch  from   tho rose  cart.    Accoin
asked for remarks, a song or anything
suitable to the occasion. He undo a
hit as well as surprised himself by
composing "My Bespects to Benni-
ger" on short notice. Olaf Sona executed some fancy steps in perfect time
to Toti's lightning-like swings of the
bow. In this turn Scotty's curly-
haired dog also came in for a fair
share of applause. "Kentucky" was
called for and responded with a coon
song, "The Old Musketeer" was well
rendered by E. H. Vaughan. Stendall was down on the roster for another song, and won the house with
"Just Across the Bridge of Gold.
Further songs were sung by Wm
Bunting, J. Kellet, G. Nye, Chas.
Bunting, Scotty Gilmore, Ed Miller
aud N. Addison. Genial Walter
Dudney ably presided at the piano
throughout tne evening.
The refreshments served were excel
lent aud abundent; in fact the whole
affair was distinctive for its general
liberality, and the Grand Forks
Union is easily the prince of enter
tainers. It was about 12 o'clock
when the crowd dispersed.

Jack Reilly, of Seattle, was declared
a draw at the end of the eight round
owing to an accident. The four-ronnd
exhibition between Billy Bunting, of
this city, and Bob Breen alsi resulted
in a draw.
One hundred men went on strike at
the B. C. Copper company's smelter
at noon Wednesday because no reply
to their demands for an increase in
wages had been received. The officials having gone as far in the matter as they deemed consistent, referred the question to the New York office, and no reply, beyond that the
head official were considering the matter, having been received, the demands of the men have not been submitted to and they are out.
A number of yonng ladies in the
city are of the opinion that they have
good grounds for entering complaints
of unchivalrity against a considerable
number of the resident gentlmen.
They point out as an instance the
treatment accorded them on the occasion of a function in the city recently. One married iimn, they contend,
brought as many as live young ladies
there. They state that the unmarried
male element will have to change
their mode of procedure or take tho
consequences of becoming ostrasized
from their midst.

J. H. Feeney nnd Frank McFarlane, who huve Itceii on a timber
cruising tour through the upper
North Fork country for the Yale-
Columbia Lumber company since
the 1st of the month, returned to
the city yesterday.
W. J. Mclntyre returned yesterday
from North Battleford, Sask,, for
which place he started about ten days
ago in search of Gold. He gives the
following account of his trip: "I
have evperienced several gold rushes
in Alaska and elsewhere, but while
the Birling affair was comparatively a
small matter, it was serious enough
while it lasted. Over one -thousand
persons were drawn there. The gold
teiritory was said to cover 26 square
miles, and thousands of feet were located on all sorts of ground. Notices
were posted up, and land was located
for chicken ranches, fruit lands, and
in every imaginable- manner. Upon
my arrival I was offered several valuable claims for varying amounts of
cash, but when I asked the vendors
for their licences I found they had not
got that far and did not seem to know
that such documents were necessary.
The origin of the affair is laughable.
The pumpman at the railway station
tank found the supply pipe had been
choked up and in investigating dug
down a few feet. He announced that
the pipe was tilled with equal quantities of black sand and gold,and I under
stand,offered to sell a cupful for $o()0
The story got out and then the telegraph got in its deadly work, with the
result that over one thousand people
rushed in, staked out claims and dug
for gold. There is plenty of line white
sand all over the neighborhood but of
gold, there is of course, no sign whatever, although on the Saskatchewan
river neur Prince Albert a dredge is
doing some good placer mining work.
The whole thing was a father stupid
li.nix and if you ask ine I fancy whisky
was at the iHittoiii of the pipe   lieam.'

Suspected Dynamiter ot the
Niagara   Hotel Still  at
Remains of Laura King Recovered and Inquest Now
In Progress
Several people in the province who
took sick with Saskatchewan gold
fever a few weeks ago and betook
themselves to North Battleford to obtain relief have returned to their respective homes entirely cured, not a
trace of fever remaining. The lichi
strike which created such a commotion among all classes was a huge
fake; yet as such it proved effective in
bringing the pulse back to its normal
degree. There is no irdcation of
gold anywhere in the district. All
there is is a lot of hood-winked people and lots of more pouring in to get
wised up. Many claims are staked,
and aa many ure daily being abandoned. It appears that Hughes, the
original discoverer.is a rascal pure and
simple. He was looking for boosters
for himself and his alleged find.
"You can make a whole lot of money, and never turn a shovelful of
dirt," said he. When they intimated
that they had no desire to go into any
wild-cat scheme, he promised to "show
them" They were accordingly
"shown" to a spot where he said gold
would be shoveled out by the barrel
at the ridiculous depth of four feet.
Tools were then secured and everybody got busy. Heroic digging failed to reveal anything but a slight
layer of rusty sand and underneath
thnt mure sand. But no gold. It
developed that Hughes had discovorea
his golden nuggets in a water Wnk.
This is about midway between the
Battle and Saskatchewan rivers.
Considerable prospecting was done
around the tank but tho only strike
made was of alkali water. This tank
served as an abode of rest for those
who became weary at the early stages
of the game. Before long a tent was
put up, and in the happy thought of
an imminent real estate boom Hughes
now wore a smile that could readily
be seen in Toronto. It, also appears
that Htighes has a fondness for the
oil of glbdness and that it was during
one of his gladest moments that he
discovered the golden goose, but in
his wild chase became sufficiently sober to kill it. At any rate his wildcat has been let out of the bag, and
if strange jowls are heard in and near
Grand Forks the citizens should need
no interpreter to inform them as tithe meaning thereof.
Coroner Kingston empanelled a
jury on Wednesday to enquire into
the cause of the death of Louise
King, who was killed in the Niagara dynamite outrage, and'the first
session was held at 4 o'clock on that
day. The following jurymen took
the oath: Neil McCallum, foreman;
J. E. Stephens, E. Spraggett, W. H.
Covert, J. Wilson, E. M. George.
In opening.the proceedings, Coroner
Kingston stated that while the oath
required an examination of the deceased to assist jurymen in coming
to conclusions as to the cause of
death, yet in this case there only remained a few charred bones which it
was difficult to identify even as human remains, and it might itot
therefore be necessary to view them.
The jury decided that it was unnecessary.
Mrs. King, whose husband conducted the hotel destroyed, was the
first witness called. Her testimi ny
went to show that Frank Cedio, alias
Painblanc and his partner, Sam
Rovello, had been the cause of tbe
disburbance, and that there had been
a "rough house" all Sunday afternoon, lasting until the explosion occurred at night. Much of her testimony is covered by the account published iu last Tuesday's edition of
The Sun. She stated that Frank
Painblanc was "mad" when he
was told that he could not be
boarded any longer. At 6 o'lock
the hearing was adjourned until 4
o'clock Thursday afternoon.
The hearing was resumed at 4
o'clock yesterday afternoon, and Mr.
King, the proprietor of the wrecked
hotel, gave evidence until 7 o'clock,
when another adjournment was
taken until 4 today. It is expected
that the taking of evidence will be
completed nt today's session. The
witness stated that he had notified
the boarders he had decided to close
the house, and that there had been
quarrels and disturbances all afternoon. Guns, knives and razors had
been freely displayed. Painblanc
and his partner, Sam Rovello, were
thc leading spirits in the disturbances. He had been afraid of his
life and had tried to borrow a gun
from his neighbors to protect himself with, but he didn't get one.
Towards night he closed up the
house, and after dark he extinguished the lights in the bar, to pre-
yent, he Baid, any one taking a shot
at him through the cracks in the
ceiling. There had been a terrible
noise, as if the furniture were being
broken up, in the room above the
bar. This room was occupied by
Painblanc and Revello, who were
roommates. He had taken a lamp
to go up and investigate. The lamp
globe had been knocked off onto the
bed as he entered tbe door.   He ad-

According to advices form the
coast, the decision has heen leached
by Premier McBride to hold the provincial elections early in January, as
soon after the New Year as possible.
There will be no session of the legislature before the elections. Notici
of dissolution may be looked for any
day now. This information comes
from an authoritative source, and
will be officially confirmed befon
many days elapse, unless some new
and wholly unexpected incident arise
to necessitate further delay.

mitted that Rovello had been pressing his attention on his wife, to
which he had objected, Shortly
after 8 o'lock there were, .including
the family, eleoven persons in the
house. The last time he had seen
his daughter she was seated behind
the lunch counter. 801111 after 9 one
of the Italians wanted lo go awtiy,
and King lighted the lantern nnd
went to the door wilh him to let
him out. As he piaced his baud on
the door he noticed Barnes showing
through the crack in the ceiling
and shouted "lire, lire!" The words
were hardly out of his mouth when
the house was shaken by two f-x-
plosions, one from above and iln
other from under (he house. The
explosion hurled him six or eight
feet, and rendered him unconscious
for a few seconds. After he recov
erecl he went to Nine of his
neighbors. He did not return to hi.*,
owu home because he was afraid ol
Mb life. King appears to stand in
dread of Painblanc and Rovello.
Rovello is under arrest in this city,
but Painblanc is still at large.
P. S. Hussey, superintendsnt provincial police, arrived in the city on
Wednesday from Victoria, and is investigating the Niagara outrage. Immediately on his arrival here he telegraphed the attorney general advis-
ingthat a 81000 reward be offered for
the capture and conviction of Frank
Cedio, alias Frank Agilio Piinblanc,
the Italian suspected of having been
the perpetrator of the crime, and his
advice has since been noted upon.
Provincial Constable I. A. Dinsmore is using every endeavor to lo
cate the criminal, but up to the
present no clue as to his where
abouts hae been received. The police authorities throughout the country have been notified to keep a
sharp lookout for the man. All trains

A Topographical Survey of

• if tiie eiH'i'ili.iiis strides made by this
Dominion during the past decade, yet
in one very important matter pro
gress seems to have lieen at almost u
standstill. We refer to the fact thai
there is not now—and there seems vet''
little chance of being in the futuie—
au accurate topographical map of this
northern portion of the American
continent. Maps ure in plenty of i'i
sort, but of the sparsely Inhabited or
semi-explored regions, which, after all.
comprise ninety-live per cent of the
Dominion, maps with any pretence to
accuracy are few and fur between.
It may indeed, be said that beyond
some lately made contour maps of the
Rocky mountains, the only maps
worth having of the less known regions of Canada are those issued by
the geological survey. It is not, however, the duty of that department to
map the topography of the country,
aril the natural result is that, though
the survey's maps satisfy the miner,
prospector and scientist, they aro of
little yalue to the lumberman and settler.
This absence of reliable topographic
mapping is all the more incongruous

when we reniemher that there is a
plentitude of mapping departments
that would seem to guiuurttee, not 11
dearth but ail excess, of such io formation.' The department of agriculture
issues maps, the post office issues
maps; the dominion land brtuiuh issues
maps, the astronomical branch, the
boundary surveys, the department of
marine and many others—all, from
time, to time, issue maps; and yet remains the bald result—the topograph^ of Canada is yet un mapped.
For many years a cry has gone up
from tin- survey officers—but it has
often literally been a cry in the wilderness—that they have had to employ
fifty per cent of their field time in
mapping the topographical features
before they could attack the geological. This was manifestly unfair to
the field officer and is bad business
for the Dominion, for it is always bad
business to pay a special salary for
ordinary work: Any one with average intelligence can aspire to be a
topographer; a first-class geologist can
only be rightly so-called when he has
had a special training, both in science
ind the art of observation.
What is required are maps showing
accurately, the surface features of the
country, which would not only be of
great value for depicting upon them
the geology, mineral wealth, forests
ind other natural resources, but would
ilso be very useful in ordinary commercial enterprises by showing accur-
itely the distances between various
ilaces, the nature of the intervening
jountry, the catchment or drainage
basins of streams, the location and
size of waterpowers, the grade he-
tween points where railways, canals,
drainage and irrigation works are contemplated and many other purposes.
With such a map many of the preliminary surveys for railways and canals
now made by the government and by
private companies, often at great cost,
would be uuecessary, and a saving annually of large sums would be made
,n these undertakings.
The present methods of producing
maps are costly and not up to a snffi
cienl high standard, while an amoui.t
of duplication is entailed that would
never be allowed in any but a government, undertaking.

London states that at the annual
meeting of the LeRoi Mining company held there, a dividend of two
shillings a share was declared. The
report of A. J. McMillan, managing
director, was read and it gave a most
favorable account of the condition of
the mine. The present dividend is
8100,000; This, added to $1,377,000
previously paid, gives a total of 81,-
477,000. The condition of the mine
is most favorable, owing to discoveries
west of the Josie dike, which makes
the LeRoi practically a new mine,and
important discoveries in the old workings. There is more ore in the mine
than ever before in its history. Its
ross yield has been $ 18,000,000.
