W. H, Warrington Says Kettle Valley tine Survey Will
Be Done in April.
Company   Also   Considers
Extension to the Fr§.ser
River.
"We expect to have the survey
for the Kettle Valley line from Republic to Spokane completed April
15th," said H. W. Warrington, chief
engineer of that road, in a recent
Spokane interview.
"The road will be 140 miles long,
and will cost$3,506,000. The route
is down the San Poil river, from Republic to the Columbia river; across
the Columbia by a steel bridge below
Hellgate; then up the river on its
south side to the mouth of the Spokane, and up that stream to this city.
The climb out from thecanyon of
the Spokane will be made at La-
Pray's bridge, 23 miles below the
city. The road will get on the
prairie to reach the Crescent and the
Welch farming country, in the western purt of the county. It is probable that the Spokane river would be
crossed just below Fort Wright, near
the old Lake Shore bridge.
"Two surveying parties, each with
14 men, are in the field. One is
headed by A. W. Davis and the other
by James Coyle. Grades are excellent. We do not expect that any
will exceed 1 per cent. Construction
ilown the San Poil is easy.
"Our people, who include Messrs.
Stratton and Holland, o( the Dominion Permanent TruBt company, of
Toronto, are waiting for a detailed
report from me before coming to any
conclusions. The present stretch of
line, 45 miles long, from Grand
Forks to Republic, is paying operating expenses, but in order to make
tbe line a success, it must be extended, and the natural extension is to
Spokane. The road will traverse a
rich agricultural district, and will
give access to o fine stretch of country on thc Columbia river. Our people will probably put some money
into it themselves, and I expect that
they will look to England for the
rest. --;-■
"Our company is also looking for
ward to an extension from Grand!
Forks north and west through McKinley camp to Vernon, and thcri
on to Spence's bridge, on tho main
line of the C. P. R., in which connection it will give a road from the
coaBt to the Kootenay country almost as short as thc route which J
J. Hill proposes to build from Midway to tho tidewater.
"The first section of 50 miles up
tho North fork of the Kettle river
would connect Grand Forks with the'
new mining districts of McKinley
camp. The next section of 100 miles
would carry the road to Vernon, at
the head of Okanogan lake, on a
branch of the C. P.-R. Another extension of 150 miles from Vernon
through the Nicola coal fields would
connect the system with Spence's
bridge, 300 miles from GrandJForks.
"Our present line from Grand
Forks to Republic is being operated
at a minimum of expense. We have
one train crew of four  men  that
makes a round trip daily with a
mixed train. There is a station
agent at Grand Forks, another at Republic, and myself. Our shop crew
consists of three men, and there are
from 8 to 20 section men."
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Kenneth M. Stephen, bookkeeper
of the Hunter-Kendrick company at
Greenwood, leaves next month /or
Grimsby, Ont., where he will en
gage in business on his own account.
Mr. Stephen has spent the past • five
or six years in the Boundary, haying
resided in this city prior to moving
to Greenwood, and has earned the
esteem of all classes of citizens. Mrs,
Stephen will precede him, as she
will start for the east this week.
"Harold Nelson was a scholarly
'Hamlet,' he was superb as 'Paul
Kauvar,' but in 'Richelieu,' his favorite chaiacier, he closely attains to
greatness," This is what a Winne-
peg critic wrote after witnessing Mr.
Nelson's splendid production of
"Richelieu," which is to be seen here
on Friday, March 31st. Mr. Nelson
has made almost a life-long study of
the character of "Richelieu," and
hiB convincing portrayal of the clever, crafty cardinal reveals the student as well as the actor. It is a
drama telling a story of absorbing
interest, indeed developes in strength
as the plot unfolds, until a powerful climax is reached. Mr. Nelson
has never before played "Richelieu'
under the same favorable circumstances as this season, for his mana
ger, Mr. C. P. Walker, has furnished
him with a scenid production of metropolitan completeness. The costuming is both elaborate and historically accurate; indeed, no detail
has been overlooked. Those who go
to see Mr. Nelson and hiB well-balanced company in "Richelieu" may
confidently anticipate an excellent
performance.
W. J. Murphy,  the  painter, left
today for Nelson, where he remains
during the summer.   His family wi
reside in this city for the present.
Mr, Harold Nelson will shortly
return here with an elaborate revival
of his greatest play, "Richelieu."
The great French cardinal, as depicted by Mr. Nelson, will long live
as one of the dramatic treats of ihe
day.

The local aerie of Eagles is spreading out its wings .socially, and has ex
tended an invitation to the Ladies of
Maccabees to attend a card party and

effort is being made to make the en
tei'taiiinieiit a big success.
M^yor Hammar Receives a
Threatening Letter From
Unknown Party.
Gateway Lodge Will Entertain Phoenix and Republic
Visitors Thursday.
Mayor Hammar last Saturday received an anonymous letter threatening that his property would be burned.
The epistle bears a Grand Forks post
mark, and is signed "A Friend." The
local Sherlock Holmes are endeavoring to ferret out the perpetrator of
this outrage, and claim they are making satisfactory progress. If the
guilty party is caught, he should be
made an example of.
Gateway Lodge No. 45, I.O.O.F.,
will entertainment their visiting brethren from Phoenix and Republic next
Thursday night in their hall. A special
excursion will be run from Phoenix,

latest spring styles of millinery
goods on display at the McLean
building, Bridge street.
Mr. Dougal Maginnis, the well
I'knowiv rancher of this city, is reported to have disappeared suddenly from Vancouver last Wedesday
afternoon. On the following day he
was found at Blaine, on the international boundary, wandering about
bareheaded and apparently of unsound mind.
Ottawa still holds the hockey
championship of the world, having
defeated Rat Portage in two of the
three matches played by the scores
4-2 and 5-4, Rat Portage having won
the first game by 9-3. The losers
have the satisfaction of scoring 15
goals to the winners' 12, only they
didn't spread them judiciously. The
contests excited considerable interest
in Grand Forks, and between 4200
and 8300 were wagered on the remit.
Two loeal hockeyists, one a bookseller and the other a bunk clerk, are
wearing respectively $25 and $10
smiles these days ; while a bookkeeper, who also thinks he is a hock*
eyist and an all-around sport, has a
face 45 dollars long, for that, is how
much he is reputed to be behind on
the game, so to speak. Thc Sun
man candidly confesses he is about
'steell Grand Forks imported perfects on thc result, and is forced to
find solace still in the old clay dab.
Three carloads of blister copper
were shipped from tbe Granby smelter to the Nichols refinery in New

eight miles below the Reardan
bridge on the Spokane river.

Mr. A- B. W. Hodges' new electric
automobile arrived in the city last
Saturday, and Mr. Hodges and a
party of friends exhibited it to the
unsophisticated populace by frequent ' drives through our dusty
thoroughfares. Mr. Hodges acted
as chaffeur, while his guests were
kept busy in keeping their hats on
straight. As far as The Sun knows,
the machine is giving general satisfaction, although it doesn't climb
12 per cent grades as easily as it
auto.
Mr. Chas. Hay and daughter, Miss
Ethel, left yesterday on an extended
trip through the Northwest territory.
They will visit the Macleod district
in Alberta, where Mr. Hay has two

Provincial   Government  Is
Afraid to Annqunce Railway Policy.
McBride Will Go to the Country Backed by C. P. R.
and G. T. P.?
Nothing definite has been decided
upon further regarding tbe railway
policy of the Provincial government,
and the news from thc coast on this
question continues to be of a very
hazy nature.
The caucus of Conservative members which met last night was to
have given attention to further details of the transportation problem
of British Columbia, but this important question to the people of the
interior was not touched upon at all.
The most unexpected news comes
in a despatch which states that "the
Province is to be divided into two j
preserves for the benefit of the C. P.
R. and the G. T. P., and in return
these two great corporations aro to
keep the McBride government in
power. The C. P. R. is to be aided
with cash bonuses for building feeders between the international boundary line and the 51st parallel. All
above the 51st parallel is to be G.T.
P. preserve, and the aid f ir building
the railways is to be in the shape of
land grants.
"It is framed up that the McBride
party will go to the country on this
as a policy, and that the two railways will furnish the campaign fund.
It is a nice scheme, but it will not
work."
FraBer, Shatford, McGowan and
Price Ellison are said to be unalterably opposed to the C.P.R. project,
but the general impression is that
they would not carry their opposition to the length of defeating the
governme.it.
In the event of the C.P.R. proposals, being adopted, no more will be
heard of a coast to Kootenay line for
a good many years to come, and as
the C.P.R. wants five years in which
to commence construction, it iB probable that several years would elapse
before any start would be made on
the construction of tbe line'from
Midway to Spence's bridge.

Mrs. M. J. Taylor aud daughter,

and refreshments were served.
Jack McGill was severely burned
at the Granby smelter last Friday
by stepping into a slag pot full
of molten slag, producing a painful
though not dangerous wound. He
is recovering rapidly from the effects
of his injury.
The theatrical attractions open to
those going to Spokane on Thursday's excursion are the Louise
Brandt company in "Quo Vadis" at
the Auditorium, and Creature and
his famous Italian band at the Spokane theatre on Saturday night. The
most attractive attractions, however,
for those visiting Spokane are not
usually advertised in the newspaper
— till the next day. (Hip? -Ebroituj #un

TUESDAY, MARCH 14, 1905.
A carpenters' union in Oakland,
Cal., has just refused to admit several Japanese carpenters into their
ranks, because they are not voters in
the country. In view of the fact that
Western labor unions have of late
adopted Socialism or have otherwise
become partizan political bodies to a
great extent, itis proper that citizenship should be an essential of any
m?mber belong:ng to a union with
these political objects. And in a
border country such as British Columbia, or for that matter in the entire West with its ever floating popu-
lrtion, such a step is impractical. It
will be remembered that two years
ago, when John Riordan ran for the
Provincial legislature on the Social
ist ticket, and "endorsed by the
labor unions," he received only 55
votes in Grind Forks, for the simple
reason that most of his supporters
were aliens, without votes in Canada,
and, therefore, had no claim to a
representative in parliament. Workingmen or anyone else of foreign
birth who have resided long enough
in another country to become citizens of it, and who do not take sufficient interest in that country to take
out their naturalization papers, are
presuming indeed in seeking to
choose its lawmakers. It then conies
down to the question whether polij
tics shall be kept out of the unions,
or membership shall require citizenship ; and of these "alternatives the
former seems the more satisfactory
in order that we may meet and mix
with our fellow-men on terms of
equality, irrespective of nationality.
Matters back East seem to run
along similar lines to those used out
here, for, according to an Ontario
paper, there an asionishingly large
number of people who appear to
think that it is the business of a
newspaper to jump in and lambast
everything in sight at the request of
any modest individual who has not
nerve enough to move a hen off her
nest.
In this one respect, at any rate,
Greenwood can "blow" over Grand
Forks.
It would be fortunate if the editor
of a country paper had small feet, for
then he would not be so frequently
"stepping on some one's corns.'
The once mighty John L. Sullivan
is to appear in Spokane on April
10th, and do a turn at a variety

list of 100 pugilists he vanquished
during his career, but does not mention the gent that put John L. out of
business, and on the hike, so to
speak—Hi' Ball.
It would seem that Canada was
well represented at the inauguration
of President Roosevelt at Washington a week ago Saturday, for it was
a Canadian who led the music and a
Canadian who led the rough riders,
thc two principal features of the affair. These were honors enough for
any one day.
Thc Sun accepts with becoming
modesty its regular bouquets of compliments, the last of which was for
the publication on Friday last ofthe
long-looked-for railway policy of tho
Provincial government. We do not
spread ourselves a great deal ; but
what space we do use, we use. We
long ago got over trying to print a
paper to please everybody, because
it cannot be done ; and the result is
that knocks have reafched us just
about as frequently as compliments.
Such conditions naturally have given
us no opportunity for developing a
swelled head.
Less than four months ago the
Conservative papers of the Boundary very assertively stated that, if
elected, Duncan Ross, the Liberal
candidate, would not or could not
secure any Dominion aid for this district, and that the district didn't
need anything anyway. Now these
same papers arc lauding our member for having secured a customs, office for Phoenix and better mail
facilities for both Phoenix and
Greenwood.   Score two for Duncan.

We had half hoped to land as chaf
feur of the new automobile; but,
judging from the artistic manner in
which Superintendent Hodges handles the machine, it looks as if we

ONE OF THE VILEST DISEASES
Is catarrh, which attacks the nose
and throat ( and finally spreads all
through the system. The one sure
cure is fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
which in sent by the air you breathe
direct to the root of the trouble,' Mr.
T. Y. MacVicar, of Yarmouth suffered for years from catarrh, and says;
"In ray long experience with the
loathsome disease I never used any
remedy that relieved and cured as
promptly as Catarrhozone. When my
nostrils were so stuffed up that I
couldn't breathe I found a few inhalations of Catarrhozone was sufficient to
ciear away the mucous. .1 am perfectly cured by Catarrhozone and free
from the disease entirely. Use only
Catarrhozone. Complete outfit $1.00;

Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through tho

FOR NELSON'S CENTENARY- i
A Gnst Fund  ol On. Million Shilling. I.
tn Bo Brflsed.
Of all the names on England* roll I
of fame none stands higher in the
popular estimation than that of Nelson; and the centenary., of his death
which falls to be commemorated
next year will undoubtedly, evoke a
strong outburst of admiration for the
great naval hero, of whom Tennyson
sang: >
Thine Island lores thee well, tho famous
man,
The greatest sailor since the world be*
gan.
To mark the occasion the directors
of the British and Foreign Sailors'
Society have resolved to appeal to
the English-speaking public throughout the world for assistance in raising not less than a one million shilling memorial fund, which Mr. John
Cory, pi-usiiiVnt of tho society, will
inaugurate with a gift of live thousand shillings. One notable feature
of the scheme is the distribution of
Victory souvenirs to subscribers.
Many of the old naval ships have
necessarily been broken up, and many
persons feared H.M.S. Victory, after
her recent accident, would follow her
unfortunate consorts; but the King
is credited "with having commanded
that she should be preserved as the
one floating monument of the heroic
past. Thn Lords Commissioners of
the Admiralty gave to the above society the whole of the old material
taken from H.M.S. Victory. The society has also secured tho whole of
the remaining copper, weighing several tons, left from Kelson's flagship,
the Foudroyant, wrecked in 181)7,
and will therefore be in a position
to present some million Nelson Victory souvenirs to the boys and girls
of the Empire.
The Royal Albert Hall is secured,
and other suitable centres will be
taken both in India, the colonies, as
well as in the llritish Isles, for a
great Nelson celebration, at which
the presentations will be made simultaneously on October 21, 190S.. It is
felt the souvenir, which can be worn
if desired, will be the mora appreciated if the recipient makes a little
•elf-denial from the pocket exchequer
or collects in the home circle of relations and friends not less thnn 5s,
for the Nelson Centenary Fund.
Suitable mementoes of the centenary will also be awarded to all subscribers .of smaller amounts above
one shilling.
Every town giving £">0 and upwards through its mayor or provost
will recuive a piece of oak from the
Victory, with a suitably Inscribed
brass plate, for town hall, museum,
or reacting room, and any public
school giving the samo amount will
receive a like memento.
The following are some of the objects for which the fund is to be
raised:
Nelson free beds in connection with
Jack's Palace.
Nelson free scholarships to assist
naval reserve men to rise in the profession.
Nelson endowment and extension of
Jack's Palace,
Nelson reading rooms in various
parts.
Nelson sailor's rest In King's Lynn,
close to his birthplace.
Nelson memorial in Malta.
Nelson award for heroism.
Learning to Stay Dead.
"The old fashioned villain appears to
be disappearing from the plays."
