Mayor and Two Aldermen
Were Elected Last
Vacancies  on   Aldermanic
Board Filled by Appointment
The municipal election this week
proved a surprise. An election by
acclamation had been expected in
some quarters, but no one had an
idea there would be less candidates
than offices. Monday waB nomination day, and only one candidate
was placed in nomination for mayor
and two for aldermen. These were
Mayor, G. M. Fripp; alderman. East
ward, H. A. Sheads; alderman,
West ward, Jeff Davis. The returning officer declared these elected
by acclamation. This left four vacancies on the aldermanic board.
In cases of this nature, the statutes empowers the mayor and aldermen-elect to fill vacancies by ap-
paintment, and yesterday the newly
elected members of the 1909 council
met and appointed the following al
dermen: East ward, Dave Whiteside and W. K. C. Manly; West
ward, B. Lequime and D. McCal-
•lum. The first meeting of the new
council will be held next Monday.
Wm. Cooper was re-elected school
trustee, and C. A. S. Atwood was
electeu to fill the vacancy caused by
the resignation of H. C. Hanington.
Geo. Hull has been appointed secretary of the board.

Letter From the North
The Sun considers the following
letter of sufficient general interest for
publication in thiB journal:
Athabasca Landing, Alta., Jan. 4.
—Editor of The Sun, Grand Forks,
B. C—Dear Sir: I enclose money
order to renew my subscription to
The Sun and the Globe. I would
not like to be without either.
This town is 106 miles north of
Edmonton, and the water of the
Athabasca  river, which flows paBt
this place, goes to the Arctic ocean.
The climate is mild, however. There
is very little snow, and the wagons
were running till a few days ago.
The Northern News, published here,
is the most northerly paper published in America enst of the
Rockies. The Grand Union hotel
here is the most northerly hotel in
America east of the Rookies. It
contains forty-two bedrooms. Tliere
are five general stores here. Settlers
are taking up the land in this neighborhood rapidly. We get two mails
from Edmonton every week.
The Grand Forks people have
been very highly honored in having
a beautiful picture of thu town
placed among Tuck's post cards.
Raphael Tuck & Sons are the greatest publishers of picture poet cards
in the world, and aro art publishers
to the king and queen of England.
Their post cards are sold everywhere. This means that pictures of
Grand ForkB will be sold in London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, St. Petersburg, Constantinople, Cairo, Calcutta. Melbourne, Tokio, and, in
fact, throughout the world. Yours
truly, John Simpson.
Mining at Danville
The first payment on the Knob
Hill mine was made on December
29th. The purchasers are capitalists
from Philadelphia, Pa., represented
locally by S. L. Boyer. They have
completed about 1000 feet of development since taking the option last
spring, installed a compressor and
made a great many other improvements. Mr. Boyer will assume
personal charge upon his return
from the east.
The Lucile Dreyfus mine is working two shifts, sinking the shaft another hundred feet, from which
pointa crosscut will be run to again
cut the ledge. If the ore proves to
be as good on this level as on the
upper, a long tunnel will be driven
from near the Great Northern railway track, wDich will obviate the
expense of 81.50 per ton haulage, as
the ore can then be dumped directly into the railway cars.
The LaFleur Mountain Mining &
Smelting company is still operating
a small force at their property southwest of town. They are crosscutting an altered granite, highly mineralized, but of too low a grade to be
of any commercial value,
The Mineral Hill Tunnel ifc Mining company huve extracted the
water out of the shaft of the Hercules mine. This property has all the
earmarks of a good mine, having
produced some ore that gave smelter
retiuns of about 840 per ton.—He-
public News Miner.
R. A. Henderson returned home
on Saturday from Chilliwack, where
he spent the holidays with his parents. Mrs. Henderson and child,
who have been visiting at the coast
for some months, returned with him.
F. W. Reid, city engineer, left for
Seattle on Tuesday, having been in-
jormed by wire that his father is
dangerously ill in that city.
W. A. Williams, superintendent
of the Granby smelter, made a business trip to Spokane thil week.
M. Feeney, of Colville, Wash.,
was a visitor in the city  yesterday.

The lowest recorded in this city
during the cold snap of the prenent
week was 35 degrees below zero.
This waB sufficient to put the entire
Sun staff out of commission for two
days. During the balance of the
week the editor has managed to exist by placing himself on  top of the
Queen stove, while the compositors
huve healed the antimony to a
bearable handling temperature by a
liberal use of scientific cuss words.
The public sehool closed fnr the
week on Monday, partly owing to
the frigid atmosphere, both inside
and outside the building, and partly
on account of the illness of Principal
May, who is suffering from an attack
of tonsililis. It is expected that the
school will be reopened next Monday morning.
Don't  worry.     It  will   be   hot

Wall Street Journal Points
Out Undeveloped Wealth
of Canada
Prairie Provinces Will Soon
Produce 500,000,000 Bu.
of Wheat Annually
"Facts," says the New York Wall
Street Journal, "are stubborn things
and they won't down. Mr. Hill and
Mr. Harriman are clamoring fur
higher freight rates, notwithstanding
the fact that they are dividing up
twice and three times the profit that
the Canadian Pacific is dividing
among its shareholders. These are
great but stubborn facts, and Wall
street should study them seriously.
The Canadian northwest in 18,84
had only a million bushels of wheat
for export; this year it had one hundred million bushels, and in ten
years it will have five hundred million bushels. This year the Canadian Northern has bandied thirty
million bushels of wheat, and the
Canadian Pacific seventy million
bushels. In five years these two
railroads will haul more wheat to the
seaboard than all the railroads of
ths United States combined."
Tbe Journal goes on to say: "The
Canadian northwest is fast becoming
the granary of the world. Kansas
grows but twelve bushels of wheat
to the acre. Alberta has an average
winter wheat production of thirty-
three bushels to the acre this fall,
and in the Canadian northwest theie
are two hundred million acres of virgin soil wheat lands. Alberta and
British Columbia possess the greatest quantity of coal in the world,
outside, perhaps, of Pennsylvania
and its adjoining states. British
Columbia possesses lumber resources
greater than all the states of the
union east of the Rocky mountains,
British Columbia is, moreover, now
recognized aa thc orchard of the empire.
"The Canadian northwest is now
drawing 100,000 of America's lust
farm population away to the virgin
lands of the north. Thnt country is
being developed, and be it remembered that the climate of Alberta
and Saskatchewan is the e.liinaie of
Germany, and that Edmonton and
Berlin have the same climate and
latitude. The Mackenzie valley will
grow liner wheat and more of it than
tbe Missouri valley or the Arkansas,
jnst as the valley ofjthe Neva will
grow it, unci fur like causes. However UnplCQ8ant these fuels may be
to an American, it is folly to blind
one's telf to the fact that the Canadian northwest is destined to supply
beef and pork, and cheese and butter and bread to the world. It has
the soil, the climate, and the cheap
transportation, and it will have the

■ In the hockey game between the
Grnnd Forks and Phoenix clubs at
the latter city this evening.the Grand
Forks team won hy a score of 5 to 2.
The members appointed by Mayor
Gripp and Aid. Davis and Sheads
to fill the vacancies on the alder-
niimic board are a representative
body of Grand Forks business men;
and, as the ratepayers failed to take
enough interest in the election to
nominate persons for these positions,
they should be accepted without
grumbling. One or two of the appointees are credited with having
made the statement, a couple of
years ago, that one business house
of each class was enough for this
city; but with the entrance of these
men into public life, their views regarding the future of Grand Forks
will undoubtedly expand, and there
is no reason why they should not
make efficient and progressive

for the British Columbia climate.
Dr. Zath, superintendent of education, has order such words as
honor, rigor, favor, etc., to be spelled

Make It Yourself
There is so much rheumatism here
m our neighborhood now that the
following advice will be highly appreciated by those who suffer:
Get from any good pharmacy one-
half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion,
oneounce Compound Kargon, three
ounces Compound Syrup Snrsiipa-
rilla. Shake these well in a bottle
and tnke in teaspoonful doses after
eaeh meal and at bedtime; also
drink plenty of good water.
It is claimed that there are few
victims of this dread and torturous
disease who will fail to find ready
relief in this simple home-made mixture, and in most cases a permanent
cure is the result.
This simple recipe is said to
strengthen and cleanse lhe diminutive tissues of the kidneys bo that
they can filter and strain from the
blond nnd system the pciisnns, acids
and waste mutter, which cause not
only rheumatism, but numerous
other diseases. Every man or woman here who feels that their kidneys are not heAlthy and active, or
who suffers from any urinary trouble whatever, should not hesitate to
make up this mixture, as it iscer-i
min to do much good, nnd may save!
you from much misery and suffering after while.

The Texas ranch of seven million
acres whioh is said to be engaging
the |contemplation of Jams J. Hill
and associates will comprise about
one twenty-sixth of the land in the
Lone Star state. But within that
ranch could be placed entire the
states of Connecticut, Rhode Island
and Delaware, and there stil would
remain room for another Delaware
and the District of Columbia. If
Massachusetts, Vermont, New
Hampshire or New Jersey were
placed within a seven million-acre
zone there would be space for a
promenade all around the border.
Texas has an area of more than
265,000 square miles. The German
empire in Europe includes 208,830
square miles.
The pooulation of Texaseis about
3,600,000. Germany's last census
presented a total of more than 60,-
600,000, yet the empire haB some
room left at home for expansion.
By squeezing Mr. Hill a trifle as

The great success oi Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in curia* weak stomachs, wasted bodices, weak
lungs, and obstiaate and lingering coughs, is based on
the recognition of the fundamental truth that "Golden
Medical Discovery" supplies Nature with body-building, tissue-repairing, muscle-making materials, in condensed and concentrated form. With this help Nature
supplies the necessary strength to the stomach to digest
food, build up the body and thereby throw off lingering
obstinate coughs. The "Discovery" re-establishes the
digestive and nutritive organs in sound health, purifies
and enriches the blood, and nourishes the nervea—in
short establishes sound vigorous health.

consumption is in small factories

supply all the copper consumed by
our electrical factories from our own
copper mines. One of our copper
mines is doingso well in production
that we are doubling our smelter

of two million pounds a month. The

Cheapness of Human Life
During the year 1908 labor in the
United States lost nearly 35,000
lives in the course of employment.
Tliere was also about two million
accidents. Most industries involve
risks, some greater than others. The
accident rate of electricians is excessive. That of coal miners is 3.10 per
100Q in lhe United gtates to 1.29 per
1000 in the united kingdom. This
proportion holds among the railway
employes. The United States lost
2.50 per 1000 to Germany's .98 per
1000. In otherjwords, the United
Slates slaughtered on the average
915 more conl miners than England,
and 1735 more railway employes
than Germany.
