Rkhiblic, Wash.. April 12-Th--
formal opening <if the Kettle Valley
line today passed off very successfully.
Thet* were 260 passengers on board
the special train of four coaches, which
left Grand Forks at 10:20 a. m. The
trip only occupied three hours and a
half. This is regarded as a good record, considering Ihe newness uf tin
road lied and a delay of nearly an hoiii
near Ferguson. Large crowds assem
hied at Nelson, Wash., and Curlew,
Wash., Ihe excursionists receiving an
enthusiastic reception. Many of tin*
visitors enjoyed their first view of the
Kettle Hiver Valley. The scenery is
superb. The Grand Forks lirass bund
accompanied Ihe excursion, The
guest* of the railway company included prominent citizens of Spokane,
Rowland, Nelson, B. 0„ and other
cities. Grand Forks also Bent a large
contingent. The trip to Kepulilic
proved uneventful.
The record of construction is regarded as noteworthy, considering that the
flrst euA was not turned until June 5th
last nnd that the entire work was not
under contract until August 1st. This
latest International link, which will
have a great economic effect nn the
development of the Boundary country
and the Colville Indian reservation,
situated in the state of Washington, is
42.65 miles lung.
Thc necessity of es'ablishingrailway
couiiminication between Grand Forks
and Republic has long been olivinu-',
more especially since the failure of the
various methods for treating the Republic ores at home by varlims adaptations of the cyanide proeiss. The
Republic and Mountain Linn mills
have both lieen closed for nouily a
year, while a third mill in its unfinished slages stands as a monument tn the
folly of capitalists who disregard the
opinion of experts, that by smelting
alone could the ores of Ihe camp yield
the highest returns at the minimum
cost,
There was the further dictum of
metallurgists, since confirmed hy octal experiment, that ideal results could
Iw attained by blending the silicious
ores of Republic with I he sulphide ores
of thc Boundary. This process, they
averred, would prove mutually beneli
cial, the Boundary ores helping to flux
Ihe Kepublic ores, and lhe Inl fei, by
their superior richness, contributing to
enrich the matte.
Hitherto the long and expensive
wagon haul from Republic precluded
the possibility of any but the highest
grade ores from lieing • rented at Grand
Forks. Shipments, however, have
lieen mode from time lo time, and only
of picked ores averaging in some instances »600 |ier Ion. These values
cannot lie regaided as characteristic of
Republic, which, broadly speaking, is
a camp with millions of tons of low
grade ore. Probably an average would
lie $13 per toll. The Oranhy smeller
at Grand Forks found this American
ore so desirable that the project, of a
railway between the two towns met
with ita hearty support! in fuel, the
management at one time contemplated
building the line, only abandoning the
idea when a charter had been secured
by olher parties.
The northern terminus is situated in
tho Ruckle addition of Grand Forks,
jtiftt south of the city limits. After
crossing I he 0, P. R. I met i lie rail w a y.
following an air line, traverses the
Kettle river valley south to the inter
national boundary, less than four miles
distant. Here it dosses the river, and
passing through the village of Nelson,
Washington, ascends the west hank of
the river over nine miles to H poinl
one and one half miles of Curlew,
Washington, aid re crosses thc Kettle
on a <!.">foot. Howe truss.
U-aving the river at Curlew on its
south easterly descent fiom Camilla'
the lineconlinues south through tin
Wide Olid Open valley of Curlew creek
to the north end of Curlew lake.
Thence following the west shore of
that beautiful sheet of water, t|ie road
begins the nine mile ascent, iu a sMlt.lt
westerly direction, to lhe summit,
which Is overcome by a imtutnl pass
Two miles beyond, on the opposit
mine before reaching the Mountain
Linn. Then lhe railway swings around
the mountain from that point, along
Granite creek to the Morning Glory
and Quilp liefore fcning north up Eureka creek and passing the San Poil,
Bodie, Blnck Tall, Lone Pine, Silver
Dollar, Knob Hill and olher well
known properties
The altitude of Republic is 1,0(10 feel
dgher than Grand Forks. This cleva
tion is overcome by a compensated
minimum grade of one and one hull'
percent, Going north from Republic
the ascending grade after the summil
is pussi'd amounts to only eight tenths
of one per cr lit. As the hulk of the
traffic will flow iu ihat. direction Lhe
cost of operating trains im the des
cending grade should lie moderate,
Fiom an engineering standpoint the
route was admirably chosen, and greui
credit is due lhe chief engineer, John
A. Manly, lt is the most direct rmiie
that could lie secured, and withal is
characterize^ hy the absence of step
grades and sharp curves;indeed,the
only heavy work encountered along
the entire line was at Trout creek,
near the summit, where considerable
ruck cutting was fiiund to he necessary, and earth excavations, also un
the north slope of the summit.
The Kettle river valley throughoitl
the greater part nf iti length is pructi
cully a level plain. Al Curlew, Wash.,
it meets the Curlew creek valley, hut
they are seemingly nne, Hanked on
either side hy grass covered hills or
pine clad mountain peaks.
The only wooded portion of the route
ihrough lhe Kettle river valley extends
for about eighl miles south from the
international line. Midway in this
forested reserve was obtained nearlj
all the timber required for bridges and
culverts. Beyond Cm lew and until
the ascent from Curlew hike to lhe divide is begun, the line runs through
ihe Curlew creek valley, which is a
level plain.
The rapidity withwhich const motion
work was rushed is due to Ohm-lea
Ferguson, a veteran Spokane contractor with an experience of over twenty
years in building railways. Mr. Fer
guson (Ferguson iV Co.) was awarded
the contract on August 1 last, and
subsequently relet considerable por-
tions of it in small contracts, the Inr
gest not exceeding sections fnur miles
long. In this manner it was found
thnl lietter and quicker results could
lie secured.
The dominating spirit of this enterprise is Tracy W. Holland, mayor of
(irand Forks. Mr, Holland was the
first to perceive ihe commercial possibilities of a railway hetween lhe Ann r-
icim cainp und the Canadian smelting
center, and to its accomplishment he
has devoted his time and energies
wiih rare singleness of purpose for
nearly two years.
To arrange ihe prclimiunri-s was no
easy task. In August, 1000, he obtained from ilie lliiiish Columbia Legislature after a hard legislative light and
hy a majority of one vote a charier
authorizing lhe const ruction ofai-nll-
wny from Grand Forks lo the interna
tional boundary line. There was yel
to be secured the authority foi build
ing the American section of the roud,
lietween the frontier .mil Republic, As
the Colville Indian reservalIon is ad
ministered hy the United Slates government, Mr. Holland found it, necessary to pay half a dozen visits lo
Washington. On ihese visits he was
accompanied by W. (I, Morris, a bright
young attorney of Republic. Mr.
Morris nnw occupies the posilion of
general counsel and assistant general
manager of lhe roud.
Although lhc obstacles al. Washing-
Ion at first, looked Insupeinhle they
both stuck tesol.itely to the tusk.
They had to overcome various objections and provide gnurunlees that I he
existing rights of lhe Indians would lie
safeguarded and ample compensation
for traversing Indian allotments would
he paid.   The zeal nf the interior und
Indian departments for the security ol
Its dusky wards could not bave been
more scrupulous,
One hy one, objection after ohjsolloi
authorizing the huilding of lhe railway was signed by ll. A. Hitchcock,
secretary of the interior. Every Indian claim for damages has been adjusted, and lhat, too, at the appraisement of officials of the United Slates
government.
After the organization of the Republic k Orand Forks railway (now
known as the Keltic Valley Lines) Mr.
Holland became its general manager.
The cnpilal required for buildii g the
roud was miseil in the east, the prise
dentnf the enterprise being lion, J, It
Stratum, who holds the portfolio nf
provincial secretary iu the Ontario
cabinet.
Mr. Holland bus resided in (his province Ihe or six year's, He is only
thirty three years old. He was horn
u Hamilton, Out., and fur a nunilier
if years wjis engaged in the bunking
husiness at Winnipeg, He removed
in Vancouver as provincial manager
nf the Dominion Permanent Loan .'••,,
and subsequently accepted lhe posit i.n
as manager of I he (irand Foi ks Ti win
site conipany. Since locating in iliis
ciiy he has taken a d -cp interesl in ali
matters affecting Ibe interest of the
'ity and Ihe Boundary country gem-r
ally. A few umnl lis ago he was elect
id mayor of Grand Folks hy acclnmn-
tion.
W, C. Morris, general counsel und
assistant general manager,was born in
Iowa in bSTO. He came furlher wesl
at the age of thirteen sntl subsequently
worked his way through college, having completed his course at the University of lhe state of Washington.
He was admitted to the bar in 1891,
ind practiced his profession In Seattle
before removing to Republic in 1S!1S ;
Mr. Morris is regarded as one of the
ablest attorneys in thu wesl ; he became associated wiih Mr. Holland in
1000.
The Kettle Valley Lines have entered into a contract with the mineowners of Republic for the transportation
of ore to the Oranhy smelter in Grand
Forks. According to contract, lhc
freight and treatment rate must nol
exceed $0.50 per ton. At lhe out- t a
tonnage of 100 tons daily is expected.
This amount cun lie easily absorbed
here ns lhe local smelter has a daily
capacity of 1,600 tonsand two additional furnaces are to he installed al jui
early date ; moreover, the ores of Republic, besides being smelted in the
furnaces, can be utilized lis converter
linings,
Within a year the tonnage of Republic, it is believed, will reach one thousand tons daily, as the opening of ihe
road is certain lo have a stimulating
effect upon developnienl work ; besides
a large subsidiary tonnage has In en
guaranteed by various properties contiguous to the railway at several intermediate points, such as Nelson, L.illeur

It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion 6f the Coast-Kootenay Railway frbin Curlew to Midway
will be constructed.   This line would
be now being l!uilt/but for the scarcity
of laborers.   When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here
making this the railway centre of this
district.   With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real

signed in his presence this afternoon.
Speculation already Is rife respecting

One of the most onerous of the mining laws is Ilie two per cent tax levied
on the gross proceeds of mines, less
ilie freight and treatment charges,
This is admitted hy all tobe onerous,
burdensome ami Inequitable. In some
Crises, wliere the nre is nf a low grade,
it is claimed that the government Ism
present lltllking as much us some of
the mines which have put ill large
stuns lo purchase the properties they
operate, lo develop them and lo equip
llieiu with proper machinery. As iliis

Tlie milling laws, nnd especially thnse
which relate to corporal Ions, abound
in lines ami penalties for failure l.o do
