has heen given Imth liy the Ke ttle Vnl-
ley lines nnd Ihe V. P. It. to cross their

This huiTled settlement nf differences hetw«. n the V„ V. k E. «nd the
Hot. Air line was brought shout Ih h
most peculiar manner. The Initihtlve
which ledtn the latter road withdrawing nil Injunctions was us follows. A
week ago yesterday The V„ V. ft E.
stole a march on the Hot Air road and
uninterrupted pin in its erosMng. In*
the afternoon a work train of the Wellington ft Oreat Northern came up frnm
Marcus with a gang of men under
Foreman tt. Duffey, and all material
necessary for the crossing, which had
previously lieen prepared. Work In
cutting the rails of the Hot Air trapk
and in putting In lhe crossing was he-
gun ai 6 0' clock and finished within an
80 quickly was the work done thi^t
imt a persoh iti Grand Forks knew iif
• hat had nccured until almut 8 o'cloqt
in the evening.
Monday morning thr Hot Air official, learned the news, and ihey Iif
mediately rent an engine, liox car ami
flat car out to the crossing. They took
up a position riglii over ihe diamond
frog, aud remaim-d anchored there nnlil fi o'clock, when they relurned to
Grand Forks. Tbis proceeding materially Interfered with the Iracklaylng
on lhe V„ V. k V.., as all the material
had lo he carried over lhe Hot Air
track and then hauled tn the workmen
on a handcar. Consequently hut llttli
headway was mude on Monday,
Late ih the afternoon n telegram Was
received fmm Vancouver announcing
that the litigation had heen dinppd
and it was Ihen that lhe Kettle Valley
train ailnndoned the crossing.
Neil Mcl'nllhiu, mayor of Colunihia
and Charles ('iimmitigs of Grand
Kotks, delegates tn Ottawa in connection with th . settlement of the dispute
lietween the V„ V. ft E. and Kettle
Valley lines upon tiieir return were in
terrlewed In Hpokane and gave the
following etplanation of the settlement of the dispute,
"The announcement frntn Grand
Forks lhat tbe V„ V. ft E. had stolen
a march on the Kettle Valley lines
hy putting In its crossing at Grand
Forks Junction, and ihat ihe work had
heen done contrary to the injunction.
Is in error. The dispute hetween the
V.. V. ft E. and the Kettle Valley
Lines was settled at Ottawa immediate
ly after lhe granting of the franchise
to ibe V., V, k E. hy the railway com*
mlttee nf the dominion government.
"In consideration of heing allowed
to maintain the crossing at grade over
the Washington * Great Northern
tracks nt Pelhaiu Flats, four null's
south of Curlew, the Kettle Valley
Lines ofltirials agreed to withdraw all
injunction suits agninst the V., V. k
E. This order was telegraphed to the
court at Vancouvei', and it is evident
that, delay in the transmission of the
news to the officials at Grand Forks
has caused the trouble lietween the
rival lines there today.
"Tliere will he no further trouble in
Ihe building of the V„ V. k E. into
Grand Forks and north to the Granhy
smelter, as permission was also obtained at Ottawa from the C. P, II.
officials foe Ihe V., V. ft E. to cross the

We had the assurance of President J.
J. Hill of the Great Northern tnat the
V., V. ft E. would he built through to
the coast without subsidy from tlie
governnient. Tbis assurance did much
toward simplifying mutters hefore the
railway committee at Ottawa.
•'We called on President Hill at St
Paul on our return from Ollawa and
we were again given the assurance
that the V., V. k E. would he built
through to the coast, the work to he
started as soon as the preliminary surveys can he completed. There Is now
absolutely nothing in the way of the
construction nf the V„ V, * E. to the

Mr. Hogelnnd from Hi. Paul, who since
the promotion' of John V. Stevens tn

Kennedy are going over the proposed

The case against John A, Manly
for alleged complicity in an alleged
conspiracy to burn lhe Columbia Hotel three years ngn has collapsed, Hev
eral sittings were held during tin* past
foriniglii, but nt none of them was
any evidence presented. The rase was
to have Is-en resumed nn, Thursday at

Whiteside, ciown prosecutor, having
failed to appear. Provincial Constable
Dinsmnre on behalf of the crown, applied lo the court fur permission to
withdiaw the charge on tlie ground
that no evidence against the accused
cmilil lie obt.iiued. The magist rate ac
cordingly granted the application anil
Mr. Manly, who had lieen out on $13,(0)
hail, wns discharged. The result waa
received wilh much satisfaction in
Gland Forks and Coliiniliia. It is regarded as a complele vindication nf
one of the most progressive citizens of
the Boundary district. Mr. Manly received many warm congratulations
over the outcome of the-affair.
Another Version of tbe fltnly Case.
Grkkswooii, B. Oii November 16
(Hpecial to Tiik Dihpatch)— The statements lately sent nut from Grand Forks
relative lo the charge recently brought
by the crown against John Manly nf
that lown in connection wiih the burning three years ago of a large hotel In
Colunihia, the adjoining and at that
lime the rival town loGrand Forks, dn
nnt represent the posit ion as It actually
is. The actual facts are that before
the recent prosecution was instituted
the crown was satisfied that evidence
had h .mi o'it ilue'l that, appeared toeon*
nect the accused with what. Was Itelieved
tn have lieen a conspiracy to burn the
hotel which was then an active competitor with tlie larger hotels of Grand
Forks. When the preliminary hearing came on the persona who Were ex
peeled IO appear nnd give the evidence
referred to did not do so, and since
Ihey were not in Canada when Wanted
they could not then, nor can they now,
be compelled to attend a Canadian
court nnd give evidence. Farfrom Ihe
case having "collapsed", ns stated III
the Grand Forks despatches, your correspondent hns been assured it Will he
brought on Immediately the evidence
the crown is depending on shall be available. If. however, the persons required to testify will not. attend and do
so the prosecution will not be able tn
make any advance in Ihe direction nf
sifting this matter to the bottom.
Meanwhile It Is simply a matter of
opinion whether the failure to secure
the nl tendance of lhe necessary witnesses on Ilie several recent dates set
for eliciting evidence Is, or is not, a
"complete vindication" of the accused.
From several Camp McKinney res-
idents who lately visited the town it
has been ascertained that the strike
reported as having been made in the
Waterloo mine, in thntrainp,ls In reality a widening of Ihe ore Imdy that,
has been drifted on ever since the re*
sumption nf work in the mine, It Is
stated that, In the drift at the 180 foot
level the ore was widened from lie
tween Iwo and three feet to between
four feet of good grade ore. The outlook for the property is considered to
he encouraging.
Porter Bros, have about Completed their ore shipping Contract
Say* the Mine* are developed and
will be equipped by Feb. i to a
point where they un produce
S,ooo tone of ore a day for
a period ot years.
PHofnix B. C. Nnv. 10,-Porier
Bros., general contractors, who began
wnrk last July on an extensive ore
shipping contract, for the Granby
mines, In thia camp, have almut finish
ed the work for < he season. The fall
has heen a particularly favorable one
for outside operations generally, and
ll consequence of the good wen* ber
up to a fw days ago, they have been
able tn prosecute the work on iheir
Inrge contract almost uninterruptedly
siflce Itwas initialed.
All told, Foreman Baker, who has
had Immediate charge nf the Work for
Porter Bros., hns stripped sn area of
nearly 7110x260 feet nn the upper
part nf lhe surface of the Old
Ironsides and the lower end nf the
Knob Hill claims. This space Immediately adjoins Ihe surface quarries nr
glory holes, from which large quantities of ore are being extracted and
shipped in the company's smelter al
Grand Forks. From this area something like 18.000 cubic yards of gravel
and other waste material have heen
lifted and moved to |mlnts away from
the main ore hodv.
In the rniiMe nf lh» work Porter
Bros, had some 36 or 40 men on their
payroll, wilh teams, scrapers, etc.
Twn or three overhead tram lines
were Iniilt, and moved tip ihe hill from
time to lime, aa occasion demanded.
The waste waa dumped on the receptacle scale*, whieh went down the hill
hy gravity, and were brought hack hy
power from donkey engines to points
where needed.
It is believed that this Is the largest
contract ever entered In by a mining
company In this process for the stripping of ore, and the work has been
done without a serlolls accident, lo Ihe
entire sat Isfacl ion of William Yolen
Williams, superintendent of I he Granhy mines.
The debris that has thus been re
moved was from nne in three f,et in
dejith, all hough, at another point fur
thump the bill, where the Work is
now being completed, a pothole of
waste snnie 20 feet irt depth was en
countered before the ore hody wss
In addition to the large surface area
from which ore is constantly being
quarried on the Knob Hill, this recent
stripping wnrk will Afford additional
scope for economical surface ore extraction in the same manner. As soon
aa the large nre crusher, nnw on the
ground, Is installed, and tbe 1000 foot
surface tramway completed and ready
for operation, ll will be easy fnr the
Granhy mines tn materially increase
the nre tonnage from this part of lhe
Knoh Hill, to any nothing of the ore
now being tnken mil daily from the
underground workings of the Old
Ironsides and Victoria mines, also
owned by the same company.
" The Granby companv is prepaiing

Ho many problems, such ns railway

Now that all obstacles are removed it
is almost a certainty that no lime uill

from any promises lie may have made,
the fact lhat such n reiiiutieiallve field
is tn he opened up by this line of rail
way is of sullicient importune* lo
guarantee its early construction, It
will lap the rich milling camps nf the
Boundary nnd {jiiiillknui.eii nnd give
new life to many camps that are now
practically deserted on account of lack
of railway transportation, Maiiy a
coniparttiiv.ily high grade cainp is to

way, Plenly iif agricultural laud is
remaining uncultivated until such
time as facilities are afforded lose
the produce to a mnrkei. But the
building of this wind will develop all
these resources and create a new
source of revenue to ihe province.
The government of ihis province has
no conscience,   At  least that is  the
general rule for corporations,   which
are generally   supposed   to   have m

policy  has  created  in  tile    country.
Almosl every day prospectors me semi
on their way out from the Wet, Fork,
and when asked why they nre  leaving
that   country    they     reply      that,
the   non-complelion    of    thn   wag

of the West Kirk thitt  there is no use
of tbeir remaining longer.   In fact it ie
impossible for Ihem to remain.   They

of government trumpets, which after
a short period of excitement has dted

The school where thorough work is done; where the reason
is always given; where confidence is developed; where Book-
kkeping is taught exactly as books are being kept in business ;
where Shortham) is scientific; where penmanship is at   its
best; where merit is the standard; where the training in Civil. Service; Telegraphy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them how to be
successful.   No argument is so eloquent as   the record of
things welLdone.    No mortgage can corrupt,  no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do    When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done for
others is it better to trust to luck ?   Is it wiser to guess ?
