Both Running Full Blast and Will Soon
Eelieve  the  Lumber  Market
and Enlarge the Build"
ijjg Boi-m,
Tho era of building whicli has boen
practically suspended for a week or
more, has begun again, and tho merry
hum of the carpenters' saw, with hammer accompaniment, tills tho air with
welcome music. The building activity
has not reached its height, nor will it
until the saw mills are in a position to
furnish lumber as fast as it is required.
Tho breaking of the log boom at Simpson's mill on the North Fork and oon-
sequent loss of logs has been a serious
drawback on the lumber market, but
the mill has been moved to Mr. Newby's
pluco at the foot of Hardy mountain, and
will be running in full force in a very
few days. Adjacent to the mill is over
a million feet of timber standing, and
when tlie work of converting this into
lumber is commenced, tho stiingehey
in the lumber market will be over."
Spraggett's mill commenced operations again last Monday, alter having
been shut down for two weeks because
of repairs necessitated by the breaking
of a wheel which could not bo fixed here
but had to he sent to Spokane. Sprag-
get's mill has orders ahead for half a
million feet of lumber and tho orders
are being tilled as fast us Hrstelass mill
machinery i an tur.*, out the lumber,
Dr. G. W. Ayerjll lias po\y under
course of construction a three-story hotel on Bridge street, whicli will be a
inotr.v maker from the start for the man
who secures a lease of the building. It
will baveSO rooms and be furnished in
thoroughly modern style. The need of
more sleepirg accorr modal ions is keenly
felt in Grand Forks, and the new hotel
will till a want which if not long felt, is
at least pressing.
Dr. Averill is also building a three
ptoiy structure on Riverside near tho
big store which will have two storerooms
on the ground floor, and sixteen rooms
in the upper.stories which can be used
for offices or living rooms.
Manly tit Averill are putting up a
building on the corner of Riverside and
Bridge, which will be occupied hy Ilepworth * f'o.'s drug store. (1, Ii. Stocking

Ward & Aikman, represented in (Irand
Forks hy Mr. Aikman; Ranken & Campbell, real estate dealers ; attorney Swan-
son and Dr. Hepworth.
J. W. Jones is building sn addition to
his wire mattress manufactory, lie
intends to put in improved machinery
for the manufi cturing of mattresses and
conduct the business on a larger scale.
The addition he is now building will bo
used as a mattress and furniture ware-
bouse. Some time this summer Mr.
Jones will erect u 30 room lodging houso
adjacent to Ids manufacturing establishment Mr.Jonesisalso preparing the
fixtures for the new postoffice which is
constructed on Bridge street, by Post
master L. A. Manly.
0, B, Lambert is constructing tivo
ground floor offices, on Riverside between Bridge and Main streets. These
will he ready for occupancy in a short
J. Case is erecting a two-st.ory hotel
on Bridge street which will be ready for
occupany within a tow weeks. Mrs.
Case arrived yesterday morning from
Hoillngswortb, Wash.

regular carpenter work.
I'. W. McChiine, recently arrived from
Roeslahd, will put up a two story building, on Bridge Btreet, liu lower half of
which will be used fur n meat market.
On the east side ..f Kiverside lj. A.
Manly is erecting a bonded warehouse
in whit n will l.c stored liquors shipped
in bond for tho wholesale trade. Tho
building is a substantial structure of
slone, the walls being 110 inches thick,
l'he roof will bo made of cement over
which an additional roof of hhingles will
le placed. The warehouse will be absolutely fire ami frost proof. It will bo
finished in about a wick and the papers
are here now for the bond which Mr.
Manly will give in the sum of $5,000.
Grand Forks, beside being the business center of lho entire district, will
be a city of attractive homes. Joim A.
Manly's pretty white cottage on the Cast
bank of North Fork, is admired hy ah
newcomers and itB owner contemplates
making internal improvements which
will make it a model of comfort and convenience. Arrangments have been
made for an air pressure system which
will supply the residence throughout
with water from tbe North Fork, and
will also supply the new homo of Chas.
Cumings with a perfect water system
anil lire protection. Mr. Cumings' residence on which the work of construction is being rapidly pushed, occupies a
pretty site near the river and when
completed will be a beautiful homo.
Dr. Averill is building a 810,000 homo
on the side of the hill, across the North
Fork from the  business  center of  tho
town. The work will not bo completed
for at least a "month; but \yhen' it js done
the result wjll be a homo of which any
one might well be proud. The opportunities for landscape terracing above
and below the residence are unlimited
and in time this will be known throughout this great mining territory as one of
the most beautiful coiubii ations ot Art
with Nature that could oe ell'ected.
A number of smaller residences aro
Springing up around the business nucleus, a.si.ithers will be built as soon as
lumber can be secured. In noticing
the building activity of (irand Forks
the John Manly barn must not bo overlooked. This, at the present time nc.'u*
ties more ground than any other one
pudding in tho city. It is being constructed in accordance with most modern plans, and will bea model of uli'ity
and convenience, It will bo equipped
with a vater system of its own, hoisting
apparatus and hay folks, and will accommodate a large number of stock,
with ample room also for vehicles, hay,
grain, etc,
While wailing for an opportunity to
build, many of tho residents of Qrand
Porks, A'hu but recently became such,
occupy tents which are pitched on vacant lots in various parts of tho city,
giving it a rather pioturesqeappearance,

The Fourth of July will be celebrated
in Qrand Forks with unparalleled splendor anil preparations are already being
made for the event. It is proposed to
spend at least three days in feasting
and dancing, games and racing. Over
S1000 will be given in prizes, and lho
largest amounts of money will go to the
winners of boise races. Thore will be
running races for quarter mile, half
mile and 800 yards trotting, bicycle,

there will be a danoe afternoon and evening with music by a .Spokane brass
band and it is proposed to havo a dis-
play of fireworks from the summit of

Two Candidates For Mayor and Seven
For Alderman.
Nominations for city officers to be
elected on next Saturday have been
closed and the oomplete list now on tile
with returning officer J. A, Aikman, is
as follows; For mayor, John A. Manly
and I'eter T, McCallum. For aldermen,
W, K. O, Manly, P, J. Davis, J. K. Johnson. W. O. Hepworth, J. II. Featherston,
Lloyd A. Manly and Edmund Duford.
Six aldermen are to be chosen and seven
nominations havo tern mado, so that
one aspirant will bo left out in the cold.
The Lumber Combine.
A lumber combine has been effected
between the Bpraggett and Simpson
Baw mills and hereafter lho entire output of both will be handled by A. Q,
Heals of tho Hrin of Beals Bros, of Tillamook, Oregon. Mr. Heals has contract
ed to take all tho lumber manufactured
by both mills for a year and has opened
an office in Dr. Averill's now building,
corner of Bridge street and Kiverside
It is not the object of the combine to
raise tho price of lumber, for tho prices
which prevailed before tho new deal
was made will continue in force. Tbo
fact is that the new plan will bo a convenience to both the mill men and tho
lumber buyers. Tho mills will now run
steady aud their owners, not having to
attend to taking orders and figuring on
buildings can devote tUeir entiro time
and personal attention to tho manufacture of lumber and tho result will be an
increased and Bteady output. Then too,
the workmen in the mills know where
their money is coining from and that
it will como regularly on pay day.
On the other hand the purchasers of
lumber have but to call at Mr. Beals' office on tho principal corner of the city
to have their wants promptly and properly attended to. Mr Beals has had
wide experiouco in the lumbor business
and his patrons will prolit by it.

Mrs. John A. Manly's barn warming
last night was a success in every sense
of the word. The affair was intended
to provide pleasure and never was a
mission moro faithfully fulfilled. The
large new livery barn was for once turned into a ballroom, and mirth and laughter until far into the night echoed from
board walls and unfinished roof.
The event had been advertised, and
ehorlly after 8 o'c'ock tho crow! commenced to assemb'e, until the immens i
barn loft contained more than 200 people, The attendance waB not confined

The placo was lighted with Rochester
lamps and on ono side ol the room a

while benches for lhe ladies were arranged around thice sides of the IJ't.
At the front and almost entirely covering a door, was hung tho following:

" The grand March- led by Mr. an 1
Mrs. John A. Manly, commence 1 shortly
bef.ire 9 o'clock and from that moment
until the last strains of "Hum?, Sweet
homo" had died away, there was nothing
but pleasure unalloyed. The fact that
a shower of rain camo up and that the
unshingled roof let the water down upon them,did not dampen the enthusiasm
of the dancers They just picked up
their effect*", moved down stairs and
continued tho ball with increased enjoyment. Air. Lucien a-'te-l as floor manager and caller
When "Hay and Oats" on the program was reached, an a; potizicg lunch
of sandwiches, coffee etc. was served,
after whioh dancing was again resumed
aril continued until tlie hand of tha
clock was long past the hour of midnight.
Before lunch was served an exhibition
of clog dancing was given by R. A.
Brown, Chas. ( usson and Joe Lodgmo-
nier in turn. Each of these gentlemen
showed remarkable proficiency in this
art. and their elforts met with well deserved applause.
Immediately after lunch an old fashioned cake walk was held, Ihe judg. s of
who were the most graceful walkers, being Mrs. Sheads, Mrs. Fisher and Mr.
Dinsmore. The contest was a spirited
one and the judges had no easy task on
their hai ds but after requiring tin n-
lestants t.i walk with various partners
end in single Hie, the prizes wero awarded, the lirst to Mr. and Mrs. Qill and the
second to John Featherston and Mrs.
In the absence ot the judges tho odi*
tor of the Miner took tbo cake, just
before lhe cake walk began, but Constable Dinsmore happened along just
then and made him put it right back.

Last Tuesday evening we wuic siltiiig
all alone in <>ui* sanctum, ponclnring

held   Tom   Twobellies,   the   offlce  cat,
Btaggering across tin- floor in a truly remarkable manner.
His usually smooth fur was mill id
uml muddy, his eyes were bloodshot,
his feet were braced far apart as though
the floor was fyicg to get away from
him. and altogether lie presented a
tralv pitiable uppearance.
"Why, Two! What 'ai earth is tlie
mutter?" cried we in astonishment.
"Whoopla|    'Bah for Pete|    Wl -
vat,—-ye-ow! McCallum for mayor!
Hail to the chii—Manly? Rats! lb-

tottered over to the saucer when* his

side it and dozed oil' into a heavy  sleep.
We set and watched hue fur souio
time in surprise, but at lust our curiosity sot tho upper ban I and wc gently
awakened him toinquirei ''Where have
you been, Two, and what is the matter
with you?"
"Just been up to the McCi'lnin meeting," he icplied. "I tell ,vou wu'ro gaining strength, Why, there was live of
us u)i there tonight, and the last meet-
in.; we had there was only four. I.1 "k
at that, will you! An increase of 2o per
cent in less than two weeks! And, sa}!
What do you think?'
"Haven't the lea.-t idea," we replied.
"One of the Manly aldermen has
Hopped! Yes, sir! Flopped complete;
ami the best of it is that they don't
know a thing about it. Think they've
got hiin solid, end he's working against
them all lhe time."
"What made him Hop?" we asked.
"Oh ," replied Two, carelessly, "wo
offered him better inducements thau
the Manly crowd, so he com*) over."
"Mow about this, Two?" asked we.
"Vol used to be in favor of Manly, what
made you change your mind?"
''What's the good of having a n in.i b'
you can't change it?" be answered crossly. "And while we are on the subject
of changeB I might as well tell you that
I am going to q-uit you. S'es, I know all
about your keeping me all through the
winter, when my credit was gone and I
was broke, but that's past now and 1
can rustle for myself now, so I'm going
to quit vou."
"Where aro you going. Two'.'"
"I'm going to move up on Hay A Me
Callum's addition; they've given me a
lot and I'm going up there tn live."
"Now see here, Two," said we, "what
are your objections lo John Manly?
i'ou must acknowledge that In* is the
more progressive of the two candidates.
Through bis influence we will have
electric lights and railways, the custom
house will be moved up here, and many
oilier substantial improvements will be
made; and there wiil be thousands of
people here inside of a year."
"Yea, that's just it," replied Two.
"Manly's too progressive, If he was
elected we'd have all thos- things and
more; hut wo don't want them. We
don't want electric lights dazzling our
eyes; and railway engines Bearing our
horses and making them run away; its
only nice exercise io rile down lo the
custom house when our goods yet hung
up for duty; and il there was thousun Is

have   to    hustle   to   eel   good   plliees to

in. Now if Pete's elected it'll be differ
ent; we'll mosey along nico and consor

except moving Grand Porks up onto

taxes on Pate's land won't beany higher,
They diiln'l have any business taking

Why didn't they mind their own bus!
ness and leave it out? Hay & McCalluni's addition is the place foi the town
anyway. They libit no frog ponds up
thero—but one -aid it don't overflow

"What improvements hav e they on
the addition, Two?" we asked, after a
"Well that's a corker." he mumbled.
Look at them nice graded streets we's
got up there. Look at them bricks,
Look at them horse-power electric wagons of ours. Look at zee smelter we'so

SATUBDAV, MAV 1, 18!)/,
Before anothei issue of ibe JIim.k
lhe people of Grand Forks will have decided upon whom shall devolve tbo re-
sponi ibility of ina igerating a system of
government that will direct, in a gnat
measure, tlie future of (Irand Forks, and
il lies within the power of these gentlo-
ment to establish a basis by which our
city ma) soon becon e the most desirable pla f residence and th" principal
business and railroad center  in   Driti h
But this slate of affaira can only be
achieved by the adoption of thoroughly
businesslike, economic and pr igressivo
methods. For such a policy the Miner
has directed and will continue to direct
its utmost endeavors.
Believing, with every other citizen
who has the interest of Grand Forks
at heart, that no great"!' calamity could
befall the prosperity ol' our city than the
eloctinn of a man lor mayor, whoso candidacy is advocated, directed and boing push, d by the owners of nn alleged
townsite adjoining (irand Forks; men
who have not a dollar'- interest in the
lown. and whose uaile I efforts in the
pasl have been directed toward doing
every thing in their power to deter the
growth of (Irand Forks in their vain ef*
forts to establish a town on their own
property. That this al.iance between
Mr. McCallum and the owners of the
Hay A* McCallum addition forbqdea no
»i.d ti Ibe future prosperity of our city
in Die . vent of hiselection, no fair-minil-
( d man will deny.
For this reason and this reason alone
tlie Miner stoutly and fearlessly supports the   candidacy   of  Mr. John   A.
rks. It was through his (
the speaker of tne bouse, Mr. Higgins,
consorted to visit this city. Ho wis
royaby entertained while here, and in a
speech at tlie banquet which was paid
for by Mr Manly -expressed the opinion that the only way in which (irand
Perks co.ild-.ct the benefit of her taxes,
would bo to incorporate. He was surprised, ho said, to Ij11.1 bore in a section
of lhe country whi'.-h up to a short time
ujnliud been practically unknown, such
an ideal spot for u city, ami so much Intelligence and spirit represented by tho
citizens alroady'hero, II
brilliant future for (Ira
laid especial stress   upo i
of   incorporating,     Mr.   McCallum in
responding to a toast, fully coincided
with Mr. Jliggins' views, but later
showed has inconsistency by working
Bginst tbe measures which, at the ban*
.|iiet. he a; | roved. He was defeated in
bis elforts, however, and then he attempted Io have his own property, west
of the city, excluded from the corporate limits. Ho did not aant bis property in the city and still lie wants to be
mayor. Does that look like bo is in favor of budding up tbe city, or of getting in capital to develop the mines?

■   I.
I . i ne short week we must choose a
mail for mayor, and he must be a man
who bus tho confldenca not only of bis
[i : .\ citizens but of the capitalists in
the money centers. There is but one
man in i irand forks who fully represents every iit.-r. st of the community
and is in touch with the outsi le world,
and his name is John A. Manly. Every
business intc rest demands that he shall
. lecled mayor; and lie w id be. The
■■■i od .-..a'. .■ and business judgment of
our citizens will n >t permit Ihem to
make a mistake at this lime. To choose
fi ■ mayor tbc man who has used every
effoit to prevent the city from incorporating, and who is   now  endeavoring to
I e I
to vent his spite on account of his failure to defeat the incorporation, would
bo a feiai blow. The city must have a
progri ive Bpirit at. its head and not
one wiio wil! retard its growth. The
most important question our citizens
have io decide is that of selecting their
Brs   leader.   By that one act they will

Every voter must think this matter
over seri. usly, Every one knows the
records of 11." candidates for mayor, so
far as their connection with (.rand
Forks is concerned, and that, regarding
the welfare of the citv, thoy are as directly opposed to each oilier as day and
night. All know that John A. Manly
accomplished in threo months what it
took the combined efforts of tbe Ross-
landers I wo years to secure, the incorporation of tlie city. In Rossland each
candidate for mayor claims that be
signed a subscription list which raised
81,200 to defray the expenses of a com
mittee sent to  lhe   legislature
east of the home of some of bis petsonal
friends, who are pi evented from voting
by being just outside tbe city limits.
During his entire residence here, it is
safe lo say that 1'. '1'. McCallum has not
expended 8100 por year in the employment of labor to delelop the country,
while on the other hand, business
bouses and dwellings, bams and cultivated Melds, are monuments to John
Manly's progressive spirit. His own
success in business is proof that he will
handle tlie city's interests in a businesslike planner, while bis wide experience
and broad minded methods are invalu-

There b' an attompl ou foot, by the

character of votes have been registered.
The law is very clear on that point and
••ays: "The persons qualified to vote
tor Mayor nud Aldermen shall be such
persons as are nude liritish subjects, ot
tho full age of twenty-one years and
have resided within tbc limits of such
city for three months next proceeding
Ibe date of such election." Because a
person happens to be working a prospect in some of the camps adj icent to
Grand Forks olid for convenience sake
gets bis mail here, it docs not qualify
him as a voter, Steps will be taken to
see that evory person who has falsely
registered will be dealt with according
to law.    A word to tho wise is sul'.icient.

nf Midway and thu Bride the Daughter of One of Carson's Oldest
A pretty wedding wan solemoitSed lant
Wednesday evening in the Presbyterian
church, Urand Prairie, whon Mr. James
0, McNicol, nf Midway* and Mins Jen*
nette A. McLaren.ot Cal-soDi Were United
In marriage. The Infip}- event, which
was tlio lirst of its kind to take place on
Orar.d Frairiej was Witnessed by about
one hundred friends of tile Contracting
At I' o'clock the strains of "Homo,
Sweet Homer reSohnded throUgh tlih
L'hurch as a wedding march and the
groom, attired in conventional black and
accompanied by the best man, Forbes
M. Kerby, took his plate in front ot the
alter. Immediately after, tho bride entered on the arta of her father ahd followed by the bridesmaid, All s Elsie McLaren.
The words wero Fold which joined
the two young liVestoraye* and the happy couple,accompained by about sixty of
the "old timers'' of the valley; who had
been invited to tho wedding reception;
proceeded to Mr. McLaren's home in
The church wherein the cerefhony
was Derformed rt-aa beautifully decorated, and behind the alter was an illimense
horseshoe of evergreens and flowers;
symbolical of good Kick; whicli it iB the
wish of the whole community, may accompany Mr. and Mrs. McNicol through
the entire journey of life.
The bride's dress wiis a bewitching
creation of cream nun's veiling trimmed
with cream ribbon ar.d lace; and she
wore a handsome veil of white Brussels
net profusely trimmed with orange blossoms and orange blossoms made up the
boquet which the bride carried. The
bridesmaid wore a becoming costtlme of
pink nun's veiling, trimmed in pink ribbons and lace,
Tho wedding reception was hold ih

was appropriately decorated for the occasion, Aftor congratulations had been
offered, dancing commenced' tho bride
•and groom leading the tirst Bel. The
pleasant pastime was continued until
midnight, when tho party repaired to
the Grand Prailiehotel which is owned
by the bride's father^ and where a sumptuous wedding banquet was served. At
the close of the repast several toasts
wero proposed and responded to among
whicli were"The Bridej"prorJosed by Mrs.
John Manly and responded to by Mr.
Forbes in a very pleasant manner. "The
Groom" being tho next on tho list, was
responded to by 'himself." "The Bridesmaid," was looked after by Mr. Kirb.v
who closed by proposing "The Ladies'
and called upon LaHuo Perrine to ro*
spond, who was equal to the occasion.
The health of the Hither of the bride
was then drank, aftor which thoso present bid adieu to the happy couplo.
Thursday morning the newly married
couplo loft in a private conveyance for
Spokane where they will spend their
honeymoon. They expect to return in
•ibout two weeks and will reside in Midway, where preparations are beinr< mado
torn reception Upon their arrival.
The bride and groom were the recipients of many halidsome and useful pre-
The groom; Mr. James '.i. McNichol,
is one the most prominent business men
of the Boundary Creek district, owning
b large mercantile business at Midway
and a similar establishment at Anaconda. He is a young man of exemplary
habits, o[ keen business judgment, and
enjoying the esteem aud respect of all
his acquaintonces. lie is to bo congratulated in securing for a helpmeet in
life so estimable a young lady as Miss
Jen nette A. McLaren. She is the accomplished daughter of John McLaren,
o*ie of tho oldest residbnts and mofet substantial men of the Grand Prairie.
'J lie bride hits numerous friends in thje
section of the country, all of Whom extend best wishes.
It is a fact worthy of comment ^hat
the ring ueed in the marriage service
was a solid gold band made from gold
tali en from the Boundary Creok district.
Who controls that, French vote we
havo heard Bo touch about?
Is honebty the onl)* requirement necessary to miike a sufacessfiil mttyor?
If P. T. was elected inayor Would he
con ti ibute acent toward entertaining our
visitors?    .
'Vho would welcome our  distinguish
ed guests if Our Peter was elected
What made Lou bring homo the
wrong team from the wedding Thursday morning?
Why tho man with "chunkb of ore
bigger than t'orbin's cars" took to peddling shoestrings.
Ilowmueh money have the opposition to John A. Manly spent toward
making (irand Forks a town?
If P. T. was elected mayor would wo
have any sewer system, tire protection
or sanitary regulations this year.
How many improvements would be
made during his Worship's term of
olliee—if he should happen to get in.
What Compensation a certain minis
ter of tlie gospel gets for his valuable
services lu running down (irand  Forks?
Who ran tho lirst daily stage line into
Grand Forks at an enormous loss in
order to make it possible for outside Investors to get into town?
ir any man who has property interests
in I irand Porks would be so foolish as to
place a man in the mayor's chair, whoso
whole effort for the past six months had
been to kill the town.
If the MeCai inn faction really thinks
that bocalise a man happens to be a
Frenchman ho can be horded like a
lot of geese and driven to the polls and
Voted?    They appear to.
Whether or not Peter would have declared hia self as a candidate for ihayor
if it had not been foi* the influences
brought to bear by iliteres'ed ohtside
parties witli axes to grind.
What has become of tho hundred
teams lhat used to cross the free ferry
dail,,? Have they quit since tho ferry
washed, away, or do thoy swim over?
They certainlj* do not puss through the
if "bur" Peter is so certain to be
elected by an overwhelming nlajority,
as his supporters claim ho is, what
is the use of going to the expehso
of holding an election? Why not tlira
tho olliee over to him at onco?
Wotikl It not bo ihoro manly for persons who have no interest In Grand
Forks, beyond tho hope that somo groat
calamity may habpeh tb injure the future growth and prosperity of the town,
to keep out of its municipal election?
WoUld any sane person place his business in tlio hands of a uian Who liad left
no stone unturned to injilro his own Individual interests. The same care and
caution should be Used in selecting piib-
lic officers that Would be givon to oiia's
own affairs.
Is it not a fact that the petition requesting P. T. McCallum to be a candidate for inayor was projected; framed
and circulated, by persons who have no
interest in Grand Forks except to do
everything in their power to bldck its
progress in order to build up an alleged
townsite about a hiile further Up tho
