Fourth Year—No. 65
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, June 13,1905
Issued Twice a Week
Minister of Public Works Returned by an Increased
Majority
North Oxford Elects George
Smith, Liberal, by a Majority of 200
A special dispatch to The Sun
this evening states thnt in the bye-
•election in London. Ont., today,
Hon. Chas. Hyman, minister of
public works, is elected by a majority 422 over his Conveitative "opponent. This a large Liberal gain
over tho election last fall.
In North Oxford, Geo. Smith,
Liberal, is elected by a majority of
200, a gain over the Liberal vote in
the Dominion election.
The Conservatives made a vigorous
light in both of these constituencies
against the autonomy bill.
Granby in Similkameen
Granby interests are about to undertake development of a number of
properties some miles west of Phoenix. A bond has been taken on the
Lakeview and Dividend claims, on
Kruger or Dividend mountain, near
Osoyoos, between that body of water
and thc Similkameen river and not
far from the boundary line. T>vo
four-t.orse loads of mining material
were sent from Phoenix to the properties, last week, to undertake prospecting operation*). John Rogers,
of this city, will have charge of the
work, and will have a force of a dozen men. The claims are not directly on the route of the proposed line
of the Great Northern railway into
the Similkameen, but a short spur
could easily be built to them, if
they prove with development what
is hoped for them. The claims have
had some work done in the past,
and are claimed to have large bodies
of pyrrhotite and magnetite ore,
which is suitable for fluxing when
smelted with tho sulphide ores of
the Boundary. Granby interests, it
is said, have also taken options on a
large group of claims on Copper
mountin, near Princeton, in the
Similkameen.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
While the Sun orchardist was engaged in carrying water from the
lagoon near the Kettle river to his
trees, after dusk last Saturday even*
ing, he noticed something wriggling
on the bottom of the pail, but paid
no attention to it, thinking it merely
a piece of driftwood, given animation
by the motion of the vessel. On
emptying the pail, however, he found
the black object to be a ten-inch
trout, very much alive. It immediately made an effort to regain tbe
river.
Last Friday afternoon Ja mes Iago
again narrowly escaped being killed,
says the Orient Journal. This time
it proved more serious than the occurrence two week ago, when he fell
forty feet to the bottom of the Copper Butte shaft, While he was at
work on Friday in the same shaft
twisting tbe drill and Tom Ryan do
ing the hitling, the drill struck a
misB hole containing about a stick
of giant powder. The explosion
lacerated Iago's right hand and inflicted deep gashes in the face and
neck. Ryan was lifted several feet,
but escaped being injured. Mr. Iago
was brought down from the hill to
the town in the evening, and Dr.
Kingston, of Grand Forks, wns
culled, who amputated the hand
and dressed the wounds.
A special meeting of the Hedley
board of trade last week wired Duncan Ross, M.R., at Ottawa as follows: "The Hedley board of trade
views with alarm the effort being
put forth by the C.P.R. to accomplish the defeat of the V., V. & E.
bill now before the house; and in
approving wholly your course beg to
assure you that the Similkameen
valley is a unit in favor of the bill,
regardless of political leanings.
Wire latest developments."
Mr. and Mrs. M. Burrell left yesterday for the coast cities, where Mr.
Burrell will attend a meeting of the
Conservative association.
Page Boyle, of Spokane, was in
the city last night. Mr. Boyle has
diamond drilling contracts in Summit camp both for the Granby company and L. D. Wolfard, and reports making splendid progress with
his work.
The following letter, from Mr. C.
R. Perry, 254 Cedar Grove street,
New Bedford,Mass.,has bfeenreceived
by The Sun: 'I wish to get some
information as to the mineral re
sources of thc Grand Forks mining
district and surrounding country,
with uaiiies qf different mining properties, value of stock, mines in operation or otherwise, etc., but do not
know where to apply for same. If
there are any mining reports published could you procure me a copy,
or give me the address; also would
like to have one or two local papers.''
There are doubtless a number of our
readers who can add to the information at our command. They will
greatly oblige Mr. Perry by forwarding the same to hiin.
"The Hottest Coon in Dixie," the
rag-time musical comedy and excellent coon show, is presented in
rather different.mould from the ordinary negro performance. The
usual horse-play and buffoonery
deemed essential are discarded, and
their places filled by graceful drills
und dances, executed by a well
trained and handsomely costumed
company. There is absolutely nothing vulgar or objectionable in the
entire production. On the other
hand, the show is a perfect whirlwind of melody. Thc chorus is
especially selected and trained; their
singing is a feature of the perfoim-
ance. This does not mean that
comedy and dancing are omitted, for
both are well represented by a company of well known names, among
whom are Williams and Stevens,
Arnold and Blondy, Grundy and
Weatherby, Jones and Raymond,
and many others who make the show
as a whole good to see and good to
hear, and one of the best of its kind.
This attraction will play an engagement of one night at the Grand
Forks opera house next Friday
night.

The case of James Madden vs.
The Granby company, for damages
for personal injuries sustained at the

November last, waB disposed of at
the court in this city yesterday before W. H. P. Clement, who had
been appointed arbitrator, in the
absence of Judge Leamy, by hiB
honor Justice Morrison. Mr. Clement, under the Workmen's Compensation Act, awarded Mr. Madden

fell, striking him on the left shoulder and leg and inflicting dangerous
wounds. He left side appears to be
still partially paralyzed. The unfortunate workman iB a nephew of

Reports from Oroville state that a
gigantic boom has struck that place,
as a consequence of Great Northern
construction in the Similkmameen.
Three weeks ago tne town was a
placid little trading point with no
outward signs of prosperity. The
coming of the railway has been anticipated by a throng of business
ventures. On every hand new
buildings are springing up like
musnrooms, the stage lines are
loaded with newcomers, while processions file along the road, bringing lumber to supply the demand of
the prospective builders. Already
prohibitive prices are asked for lots
on Main street, and with definite
announcement of the route to be
followed by the railroad will come
new impetus to the rush for tracts
of sagebrush.
Two banks are in the field. The
commercial bank of Conconully, of
which L. L. Work is president; ha..
established a branoh in the town,
and J. J. Browne and Guy C.
Browne, of the Columbia Valley
bank at Wenatchee, have started
work on a bank building.
Arthur Lund, of the Okanogan
State bank at Riverside, has been
looking over .the location, and itis
reported that he will start a third
bank.
Two newspapers are on the ground,
the Oroville Chronicle, owned by
the Okanogan Record Publishing
company and edited by D. 0. Noel,
and another to be run by Fred J.
Fine, who will move his plant from
Chesaw. A news stand and a furnishing goods store are under way.
Two new hotels are in course of
construction, and nineteen saloon
licenses have been taken out by
those who will seek to wash away
thc Okanogan dust from tne throat
of tbe newcomer.
Trading camps are located at intervals along thc Similkameen river
to Nighthawk, and it is probable
this place will be headquarters for
railroad operations in both directions
as soon as it is determined whether
thc Midway or thc Republic route is
the favored one. A hespital hns been
established by tho company and
placed in charge of Dr. Kcarn of
Spokane.

TUESDAY, JUNE 13, 1905
It is a pity (hat a more suitable
location—a location a little farther
removed from the habitations of the
living, at least—could not be obtained for the city's cemetery than
where the old burying grounds are
situated, which is destined, within
a few years, to become the most
beautiful residential section of our
city. Nature has made this river-
peninsula most picturesque, and it
should be reserved for the living,
who are capable of appreciating her
fantastic handiwork. A proper respect for the dead does not necessarily mean that we should give up
the loveliest spot in our midst to
them. Most people, even though
not superstitious, have an antipathy
to residing near a graveyard, and
if the committee persists in carrying
out its present intentions, nearly
all the land south of the Great
Northern tracks, in the bend of the
river, will become practically valueless. But there is another, and
more serious, objection to the present site. Thecemetery ia located close
to the river, a short distance above
where the city's water supply comes
from. During the rainy seasons
there is no telling what impurities
the drainage from from the grounds
may empty into thc stream. It is to
be hoped that thc committee will
n.'ake another effort to secure a Bite
farther away from the daily walks of
the living.
sires and imaginary pleasures. No
person ever saw a man or woman
who liked fruit and who had an appetite for drink. No person ever
saw a man or woman with an appetite for drink who liked fruit. The
two tastes are at deadly enmity with
each other, and there iB not room
for both of them in tbe same human
constitution. One will certainly destroy the other.
A circular letter from the provincial secretary encloses a copy of a
letter to the lieutenant governor from
H. W. Goodc, president of the Lewis
and Clark exposition, containing the information that the week
from July 3rd to July 8th, inclusive,
has been Bet aside as a British Col-
lunibia week, and asking that the
attention of the public be drawn to
the fact through thc press of the
province.
The amendment to the V., V. &
E. charter will again be given a hearing at Ottawa today. Although
Vice-President Whyte, of the C. P.R.,
maintains that the plans of the
Great Northern in this province do
concern his company, it is safe to
predict that that the C.P.R. will
not be entirely unpresented at the
meeting.
The provincial government offers
$500 reward for such information as
will lead to the a'rrest and conviction
of the person or'persons who murdered Michael. Clark, on or about
the 15th of May, 1905, at the loop,
near Rossland. Information should
be given to John Kirkup, government agent, RosBland, or to W. H.
Bullock-Webster, chief constable, of
Nelson.
Chills Prove Fatal!
If warmth and circulation are not
promptly restored, chills result in
fatal pneumonia, This necessitates
keeping Nerviline on hand. Taken in
hot water it breaks up a chill in two
minutes. By rubbing freely over
throat and chest it prevents colds. No
liniment so strong, so penetrating, so
swift to kill pain and inflammation.
Nearly fifty years' record has proved
the value of Poison's Nerviline. You
should get a bottle today. H. E.
Woodland, druggist.
For the convenience of customers,
Geo. Floyd, of the Rose Hill dairy,
will hereafter keep a supply of fresh
milk, cream and buttermilk on
hand at Chalmers' fruit store.
"The Hottest Coon in Dixie''
Of all the colored attractions "The
Hottest Coon in Dixie" stands at
the head of the class first, last and

to Seattle during the season of 1903
they tested the capacity pf the Grand

excellence of presentation, will always make it a welcome entertainment to all clasBes of theatre-goers
in this city. "The Hottest Coon iu
Dixie" will be presented on next
Friday evening at the Grand Forks
opera house.

If any reliance can be placed in
the following paragraph, from What
to Eat, there is. no reason why
Grand Forks should not become a
strictly temperance town within a
few years: There is but one sure
cure for the drinking disease or habit,
and that is the simplest of all. The
cure consists in eating fruits. That
will cure the worst case of inebriety
that ever afflicted a person. It will
entirely destroy the taste for intoxicants and will make the drunkard
return to the thoughts and tastes of
his childhood, when he loved the
luxuries nature had provided for
him, and when his appetite had not
become contaminated by false cultivated tastes and attendant false de-

Over thc sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when' you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
thc Rio Grande system, the far-
fnmed "Scenic Line of the World,"
tbe only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
cloBe connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars, -
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining ear service, and also
personally conducted excursion ears,
each in charge of a, competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means.of.

What Causes Appendicitis
The commonest cause of appendicitis
is constipation. When you require
physic don't use cheap drastic pills-
get Dr. Hamilton's Pills, which
strengthen the stomach, regulate the
bowels and prevent any tendency to
appendicitis. In one day you'll feel
the tremendous benefit of Dr. Hamilton's Pills. By purifying the blood
and cleansing the system they prevent
headaches, lift depression and drive
away weariness. No medicine so successful as Dr. Hamilton's, sold every-
whgre in 25c boxes with yellow cover;
get the genuine. H. B. Woodland,

The Strenuous One
During the jackrabbit chase the
president overtook the leading jack-
rabbit, and slipping from his horse,
grasped the jack by the ears as it
was springing through the air. The
rabbit was going with such tremendous force that when the president
caught his ears the Bkin of the rabbit's head broke, and the carcass of
fie jack shot out of its hide like a
wad of a popgun, gays the Oklahoma
Mail and Breeze.
The president next overtook a
large gray wolf, about the size of a
yearling steer, and grasping it by
the lower jaw with one hand and by
the tail with the other, he doubled
it over the saddle horn, taking it into
camp alive.
While returning from the hunt onp
afternoon the party was stopped by
a wild five-year-old Texas steer,
whose horns, measuring over seven
feet from tip to tip, gave him a wild
and formidable appearance. Wben
the president and his party were
within ten rods of the steer, with a
bellow of rage he (the steer) lowered
his head and charged directly at the
| arty. The president, who was riding in front, seemed to be in imminent danger, but as the animal came
up Mr. Roosevelt slipped from his
horse, and, catching a horn in each
hand, he broke both off, close up to
the head of the steer, and then lambasted the animal with its own horns
until be ran it entirely out of sight.

Caurjhers, Hawkers, Spllters!
Public expectoration is against the
common law, against the laws of health
also. When the throat tickles, that's
the time you need Catarrhozone; it
soothes away the irritation, cuts up
the phlegm and loosens the tight feeling. You'll quickly cure catarrh and
throat trouble with Cutiurhozone. It
positively prevents new attacks and
cures catarrh forever and for all time
to time to come. Don't take our word
for it; try Catarrhozoneyourself. Once
used you'll be delighted with its pleasant and helpful influence. H. E.
Woodland, druggist.
