THE LONE FISHERMAN
Walter Ross has won first prize for
the biggest fish story.
While angling in Smelter lake a
couple ot days ago he caught a big
black fiab of peculiar construction.
Ou close examination be noticed
something odd aboiit its right side.
Being of an investigating turn of
mind, he determined to see if boiling wouldn't solve the mystery. It
did. Taking tbe fish from tbe hot
water, he saw the words quite plainly
branded on its side, "All Hands." Mr.
Ross is now exhibiting the branded
portion of the fish's skin as evidence
of the veracity of his tale.
The history surrounding th° branding ol tbe fish is yet shadowed by mystery. It might, however, have had a
thousand different origins. Some big
four masted schooner' on Smelter
ocean might have struck an unseen
rock in tuidsea and foundered,and the
crew, about o perish, had sufficient
pretence of mind to send the branded
fislijsliore ward as a last message to their
auxious wives and relatives, tbe inscription in this case meaning, of
course, that "all bands" perished.
And still, again, it is possibly tbat
some highly civilized race of people,
yet undiscovered , by tbe hardy explorer, may reside at the headwaters
of the North Fork who have taken to
branding the fish, and are herding
; them like Texas steers. Tu tbis case
I''All Hands" would probably mean
the name of the tribe claiming jurisdiction over these fishes: Or (and this,
to our mind, is the most probable solution) perhaps the Grand Forks
Mountain and S ream club has commenced branding the fish in Smelter
lake. If this last hypothesis is correct,
there remains uo doubt as to the
meaning of the mystic words. They
would simply be a warning to poachers to keep "all bauds'' off.

Your Local Paper
is a necessity to you, financially
and socially. A NEWSPAPER
of GENERAL CIRCULATION,
containing the latest news of the |
world, is equally necessary to
you. The "up to date man" will
provide himself with these two
necessaries.
In THE TWICE-A-WEEK
SPOKESMAN-REVIEW will
be found the very latest news of
the world, its matter including information on politics, commerce,
agriculture, mining, literature, as
well as the local happenings in
the states of Montana, Oregon,
Idaho, Washington, and the province of British Columbia. In addition, its columns for women, its
popular science articles, its short
and continued stories, its "Answers to Correspondents," and
"Puzzle Problems" combine to
form a home newspaper that at
$1.00 per year can nowhere be
excelled.
Perhaps you have something to sell—a farm,
a team, farm machinery. You may wish to
buy something. Th* best possible way to communicate with people who wish to buy or sell
Is by Inserting a small advertisement In the
Spokesman-Rovlew. The price Is the same In

THE CASCADE MYSTERY
Tbe suddeu disappearance of A. C.
Scott, the Cascade barber, of which
mention was made in The Sun last
week, still remains a mystery. When
last seen, his acquaintances say be declared bis intentijn to find a watery
grave. When taken borne by one ot
the Thompson boys tbat night in a
hack he was said to be under the influence of liquor. He told the colored
woman with whom he lived tbat be
was going to drown himself, and some
time afterwards was heard to cry for
help, but it being dark, and his cries
ceasing belore he could be reached, it
is believed by many that he actually
committed suicide. When in liquor
Scolt olten became dangerous. He
had a check for $ioo Irom the Cascade
W aterpower & Light company in his
possession when he disappeared, payment aii which has been stopped.
Some suspect foul play by some one
intending to get the money on the
check. So far no one seems to have
made any move towards an investigation.

BOARD OF TRADE
On Wednesday evening a special
meeting of the Grand Forks board of
trade was held for the discussion of
railway matters and other business.
After the reports of some special committees had been received, the main
question ol the evening came up, and
was started by tbe proposal of a resolution, which reads as follows:
Whereas, It is of paramount importance to the welfare of this eity that the
Victoria, Vancouver A Eastern Railway
and Navigation company continue their
construction into the oity limits, and into
the smelter, so as to facilitate freight aud
passenger traffic.
And Whereas, In order to enter the city,
the V., V. ft E. Ry. will have to cross the
line of the Grand Forks A Kettle River
Ry. Company,
And Whereas, There is an injunction
now pending on behalf of the Grand
Forks A Kettle River Railway company
to prevent the V., V, A K. railway crossing as aforesaid,
Now, Therefore, be it Resolved, That
the board of trade consider such injunction as detrimental in a very high degree
to the best interests of the community;
that the Grand Forks A Kettle River Ry.
company, through its president and general manager, Mr. T. W. Holland,be urged
to withdraw such injunction; that our
local member be requested to urge upon
the government the necessity for prompt
action with regard to same, and the setting aside thereof if possible; that his
worship the mayor be requested to aid in
every possible manner the entry of the
V., V, A E. into thisoity, according to his
promise made at his election: and that
copies of this resolution be forwarded to
the general manager of the Grand Forks
A Kettle River Railway company, to the
mayor and couueil of Grand Forks, to
our local member, and J. H. Kennedy,
chief engineer of the V„ V, A E., and the
press generally.
The object of this resolution was, ai
stated plainly therein, to endeavor to
do away with the obstructions that at
present prevent the V., V. & E. coming into this city, This was not what
a certain coterie of supporters of tbe
rival road wanted at all, and they accordingly had prepared an amend:
ment, which read aa follows:
Whereas, There are two rival railroads,
the Republic A Craud Forks Railway
company and the Victoria, Vancouver A
Eastern Railway company, in course of
construction through the Kettle valley, in
the vicinity of Croud Forks, B. 0.,
Aud Whereas, The city of Grand Forks
and the Grand Forks board of trade have
heretofore placed themselves on reoord
as strongly in favor of the government
permitting these roads to be built and
each line to have entrance to Grand Forks
and the Granby smelter plant,
Aud Whereas, The eity of Grand Forks
desires to be considered as friendly to
both said roads and enterprises, and fav.
orable to each of them as regards to
building of their respective roads and se •
curing access to the city of Grand Forks
and the Granby smelter, and this course
having not only been endorsed by passing
favorable resolutions by the board of
trade, but the oity of Grand Forks by a
vote of its ratepayers have granted subsidies of a considerable amount to each
road for the purpose of purchasing laud
for right of way and depot grounds,
Therefore, lie it Resolved by the Grand
Forks Board of Trade, That from aud
after the passu** of this resolution, in
order to secure tne recognition of this
board regarding any further endorsement affecting Tu any manner either of
the said railroads, where the other road
may be directly or indirectly interested
lor affected, that the road or oompanv desiring any action or endorsement, must i
prove t j the satifaotion of this board
hat they have authoOity to speak for the
lompany whose interests they claim to
epreseut.
In this amendment absolutely uotli-
ng  ia said- about removing the inunction, bnt hints darkly  on   things
hat have no bearing on  the original
lolution.   It  was moved  and seconded that the voting on this be taken
y ballot, but the   worthy   chairman,
rue to his friends (it appears he has
cently become a warm supporter of
be Hot Air policy), ruled that to earry
hia  latter motion  a two thirds vote
ould be necessary. A vote was taken,
suiting  in 14 tor and 9 against, so
hat by the just (?) ruling of the presi-
lent tbe majority   were  defeated in
heir endeavor to  be allowed to vote
>y ballot.   As it may not be generally
understood, it may be as well to point
ut that a large   number  of   people
living in this   town, and   members ol
Ithe board of trade, are either livir,g
n bouses built by the aid of loan companies, or owe, money on   a lot   they
have bought from the  Townsite  Co.,
or owe money to other financial institutions.   This bring tbe case, it is easy
to see that many would not vote at an
open vote   lor fear ot drawing down
upou them the wrath ol the men  who
who  hold  tbem  in  their  clutches,
hence their anxiety to have the   freedom of voting by ballot, so that tbev
might  thus   give  expression to their
opinion.   The amendment was then
put and   lost.   Another,   and   many
other amendments, were put and .lost,
until finally, about 1 p.m., the following was passed:   Tbat a committee of
three from each aide be  appointed  to
draw up a resolution which would   be
satislactorv to the   whole house, and
to report at an adjourned meeting at 8
p. m. the   following  evening.   Many
speeches were made, and some of those
whotpoke to tbe amendment gotquite
personal in their efforts to convince
the public that tiie original resolution
was very harmful to the community.
It was easy to see, howeve .that public
opinion was on tbe.side ol the resolution,  and the futile  attempts of the
little clique who are  endeavoring  to
block it will only act at a boomerang.
At tbe adjourned meeting last night
no definite action was reached, and
another  meeting will   be   held  at 8
o'clock tonight.
RIVER STILL RISING
The Sun ia in a position to state
positively that there ia absolutely no
foundation to the report telegraphed
broadcast from here tegarding a strike
of V,, V. & V. tracklayers. The men
objected to taking checks on an out
of town bank, and so were paid off
right on tbe ground, thus ending the
dispute.
Duncan Mcintosh, of Greenwood,
visited in Grand Forks a few days
during tbe present week.
G. Earl McCarter, late editor ot the
Gazette, will leave tomorrow for Pendleton, Ore., where he bas accepted au
editorial position on tbe East Ore-
gonian.
Mrs. J. R. Robertson left for the
coast on Wednesday, and will visit
for a few weeks in Victoria.
Continued Warm Weather
May Cause a Serious
Flood.
At 8 o'clock this morning the river
was three inches above hifh water
mark of last year, and rising rapidly.
Ruckle's addition, the fiat across the
North Pork, nearly all of Riverside
avenue, Chinatowu, and all portious
of tbe city that have not been filled
in, were all unaer water,
' At 8.30 a dispatch was received from
Curlew saying that the river at that
point was rising fast, and that it was
filled with driftwood, which would
seem to.indicate tbat no immediate' fall
of the water can be looked for here.
The Columbia wagon bridge is j still
safe, though large quantities of /driftwood have lodged against the (piers
A force of workmen hat been engaged
to watch it and to keep it free of floating timbers.

Your Local Paper
in a necessity to you, financially
and socially. A NEWSPAPER
of GENERAL CIRCULATION,
containing the latest news of the
world, is equally necessary to
you. The "up to date man" will
provide himself with these two
necessaries.
In THE TWICE-A-WEEK
SPOKESMAN-REVIEW will
be found the very latest news of
the world, its matter including information on politics, commerce,
agriculture, mining, literature, as
well as the local happenings in
the states of Montana, Oregon,
Idaho, Washington, and the province of British Columbia. In ad"
dition, its columns for women, its
popular science articles, its short
and continued stories, its "Answers to Correspondents," and
"Puzzle Problems" combine to
form a home newspaper that at
$1.00 per year can nowhere be
excelled.
Perhaps you have something to sell—a farm,
a team, farm machinery. You may wish to
buy something. The best possible way to communicate with people who wish to buy or sell
Is by Inserting a small advertisement in th.
Spokesman-Review. Th. price Is th. same la
th. dally and th. Twlce-a-Week.

THE DOMINION SENATE
At no other time siaceconfederation
have tbe two political parties been so
evenly balanced in the Dominion
senate as at present. As the appoint*
ments to that chamber are made on
tbe advice of the party in power, and
are always dictated by an intelligent
purpose to strengthen it in the senate,
tbe Conservatives, who controlled tbe
government at tbe outset and during
much of the time since, acquired an
enormous preponderance in the membership. During the past six years,
in accordance with actuarial laws
familiar to life-insurance agents, •
change has been going on with unusual rapidity, and though tbe Conservatives are still in a, majority, they
seem disposed to allow the Liberals
to take control of the house.
