FIRST   YKAK."\(».
$RANP FORKS, g.  C,   SATURDAY,   MAV   8,  1*97.
IT    WAS    THE    CAT
That Worried the Anti-Progress Forces
The Three Mac's, Su.ton and Hay
Whooped Hopefully But all
In   V ain,
"McCallum s Meeting" was held lust
pight in W. K, G. Manly's hull according to program, and the voters mnl
other residents of Grand Forks wero
treated to nn extremely varied selection of "speeches." Tho ball was
crowded, standing room being held
above par.
J, E. Walker, who had been requested
to preside, called the meeting to order
and defined his position, stating that he
had no interest in tlie pending contest
and that lie would preside in a perfectly
impartial manner, but would permit no
personalities on the part of either side.
He then called for Mr. McCallum, tho
first speaker.
That gentleman read a very nicely
gotten up essay from four or live sheets
of foolscap paper. The Miner is unable to say whether Mr. McCalluni
wrot.! the selection or not, but ho read
it very well, indeed, having to go back
and repeat only a few times in places
where lie happened to look oil' the paper. The pieco in one place read, '.'Could
I l<ill the town of Grand Forks if 1
wished?'' The reader looked at his audience and said "No," and tlie walls
echoed, "no," That part of it was undoubtedly correct.
Mr, McCallum gave The Miner some
valuable advertising for which tho
thanks of the pijper is returned, and if
lu-ever wants to do any advertising ,vo
will try to give him reduced rates.
The essay in one instance hinted that
liio city might expend Hfty or sixty
thousand dollars for improvements,
when Mr. McCallum knows that twenty
thousand is all that the city's charter
allows it to borrow. Me tried by insinuation lo make his hearers believe that
Ih re was a scheme un foot to plunge
llr* city into debt.
In trying to prove that he was in favor
' building U| (Irand Forks, Mr. Mc-
' lallum said that ho hail spent time and
monoy trying to get the church built
here, but didn't name an enterpuiso that
would bring business and capital to the
citv that he had fostered. His failure
io get the church located hero apparently disheartened him from making
any other effort so fat* as his speech
Mi*. John Manly, the next sneaker,
did not havo any essay prepared, sc he
just made a plain business-like talk, tho
talk of a busy man who hasn't time to
write essays. H.e said that his only
platform was to push Grand Forks
nhi-'-d and to the front, So far as expending pubiie money was concerned, if
the council decide.l it was best to borrow 6*^0,000 for city improvements, he
believed tbey should go ahead acd expend it. lie would say nothing about
Mr. .vlci allum, Thk Miner, or the "ofiice cat," but would simply state that
he had always pulled for the towu, had
never tried to build up an opposition
lown. and believed that if any money is
lu be expended in the city   it should bo
■ xpended in tho portion where the taxes
are paid, It the citizens thought that
Mr. McCallum would  In  the best man

a us simply a matter of business and the
uiai. ought to be elected who would i\o
in - most for the city.    The   people can-
not crowd into Grand Forks too last for
1b good.    Rossland is not supported by
:is payroll, but it is the stream of out-
iders continually pouring in and spend-
ing their money that keeps the town up.
! is must be so until the iiiineH are developed tu such an extent that. I heir pay-

John A. Bea, of Olympia; was next
„,.,,,.   He expressed surprise at being
lulled upon, as he had no property here
md   knew   little   about  the   municipal
ia-i-l; blithe  did  know   that Grand
Korks 1b the stategic point  lor another
'.Hi-laud   and   had greater   attractions
' ..in that city in some respects,   ilee.v*
luined how Grand Forks is destined to
.i ome it railroad center and urged tlie
■ itizenB to take hold and build up a city,
attract population and capital   in order
■ get tb.)   railroads headed  this way.
1 he business of tlie  reservation in  the
Boundary district must be tributary to
this place because as yet cities of any
msequence could not build upun the
Indians' land.     Now  is the  opportune
nue (or the citizens of Grand Forks to
i/e their advantage  and  build  up a
vlr. Ilea, was followed by  A.  C.  Stit-
n. who, witli a copy  ut The Grand
Korks Miner grasped lovingly in ono
hand and the corner of tlio table in tho
iher,     proceeded     to   enlighten   tho
• uiliuuco as to why ho  was  for  MoCal-
itiiu, evidently thinking that  this  was
a matter the general public  would lind
hard   to   understand,   notwithstanding
'he fact that it has been street talk evo,
■-dice the question came up, that he was
to be made city solicitor 1:1 the  event of
■ VlcC'allum's election aud the reason he
opposed Mr. Manly is simply because
that gentleman would not promise to
appoint, him in tho event of his being
lie made the assertion that The Mink it
for the last two months had characterized every person who had oppose I incorporation us "knockers,'' But ha did
not tel| how these same individuals had
stood on tho street corners day after
day and week after week and made
inisrepreeentation after misrepresentation regarding Grand Forks to every
person who came to the town looking
after investments, used every underhanded means possible to induce tliein
to purchase property in their opposition town, and when unable to accomplish that end would adviso them nol
to purchase lure in the Forks.
He then tried to make a point by accusing Tur. Min ei* of raising the race
question, when anyone who has listened to the many foolish and nonsensical arguments produced by his allies
for fhe lasl ten days why Pete should
be elected, know full well that it was
one of their chief guns they were bring
until Thk Miser exposed the fallacy ot
it. Continuing, lie expressed great fears
that if Mr. Manly was elected the town
would grow so fast that there would not
lie anything for the people to do who
camo here. After reiding an advertisement in tho Victoria (Colonist, of one
Johnson, who has laid oil' an addition
on bis property about three miles down
tliejriver, he undertook to make it appear that Mr. Manly was the originator
of this "horrible advertisement," when
he knew positively thai it was a lie ho
was trying to cram down the throats
of his hearers, After telling an alleged funny story and paying his respects to The Miner and olUce cat, he
collapsed like a circus balloon thut hud
been punctured with a pin, amid long
and loud applause from Hay, McCallum
end McCallum.
Mr. James Ad lison was the next
speaker, espousing Mr. Manly's cause.
Mr. Addison is an ex-aldermau of the
city of Hainilt in, Out., and is in a position to speak intelligently of municipal
all'airs. Mr. Addison originated the
idea of last night's meeting but McCallum took it up for use to his own advantage; not figuring however how it would
turnout. Mr. .\d,lisoii believed that
the aldermen should have been heard
regarding their view." on municipal government. He thought their selection
fully as important as the mayor, as the
latter could do very little without t li *
sanction of tlio council. The council
should lie men of good executive ability.
Owing to McOallum's calling the meeting for his own benefit, the candidates
tor aldermen were not heard.
The qualifications of inayor should be
to possess Hrstclass oxcutive abi'ity,
The electors should havo no dilliculty ii
deciding between the two candidates.
Mr. Manly's p irseyeran.ee, ability and
industry has put Grand Forks in the
position in which il stands today. This
is a plain business proposition. He
would rather judge the candidate for
mayor by past record in this capacity,
but in this case neither of tho caudi
dates has filled tho olliee in this city before and they must be judged purely by
their business ijualilications. Mr. Manly
has been in this city a number of yeais,
has made a success of every private undertaking and can undoubtedly serve
the city to the greatest advantage. He
advised the electors to vote for Mr.
Manly. Mr. Addison outlined several
improvements required in tlie city, such
a.' bridges, water supply, lire protection,
sewerage, etc., aud thought Mr. Manly's
election would assure the city's obtaining these necessities at tlie earliest possible moment.
Mr. ('hns. liny was then iiil'ii'liicc'l nnd pre*
faced his remarks hy oxplaluiiiK to his hearers
what a *rroat nud succc-stiil politician he had
been ami what a great swatli he lnnl always cut

Thia   Famous  Property   Incorporated
anil Development Being Pushed.
Big Strikes May Be Expected Soon.
The past week has been a good one in
mining circles. Although no strikes or
deals of special Importance have been
reported, a large amount of development work lias been started and much
more has been projected.
Several North Fork properties are to
recaive this summer the necessary development to demonstrate their true
value, and it is safe to predict that —unless the usual rule of improvement with
depth is found not to apply in theso
particular cases—over half, if not all, of
these proporties will be proven mines
of great merit before the Bnow IlieB
The  J.    I'l. Rodm 1    Mining    Co.,
stocked for 81,000,000 in shares of par
value of SI each, has taken hill of the
Kcpper Quean, Iron King and Columbia, three of tlie best known claims up
the west side of the North Fork, and
will develop these properties extensively
during the next few innnths. This company is unique in the fact that no stock
is being placed ic the treasury for development purposes, the shareholders
advancing the necessary fun.Is.
Fred Cross, who had a contract tor
sinking on the Iron Cliff and Round
Butte, two valuable prospects owned by
J. I',. Redmoud ami J. K. Gibson, Lo-
gansport, Inl., capitalists, has t.vo men
employed on tho properties, but at last
accounts was experiencing considerable trouble from surface water. If is
expected, howi '.' r, licit the rapid inciting of the snow in He hills will soon
clear them ami obviato tli's difficulty
when work will again lie pushed as fast
as possible,
Wm. I'l'mter. ol' the Pathfinder, was
down from that claim during the week
and reports work progressing favorably
and the splendid showing already made
being steadily improved, lie has also
been doing lhe assessment on the Lib
erty Friii'tniii, adjoining the Pathfinder,
and .says the results aro met satisfactory. He returned Thursday morning
to the camp lo push development work
ahead as fast as possible on the lirst
named properly.
Go the Bonita the ledge has not yet
been cut, the rumor to that effect which
created so much excitement in the city
a week or so ago proving to be unfounded, Work is steadily progressing,
however, ami every day brings the la.
borers at least a little nearer to the
great ledge of mineral which i.o one
doubts li"s beneath tho wonderful sur-
face showing on this properly. Owing
to bad air in tlie tunnel it has been
found necessary to take off the night
s.iiff. A swerve to tie right has beon
made and softer rock is being encountered than formerly, ami the owners
fully expect to t.ip ;lei ore body beforo
lhe end of this month.
Assessment work has just beer, liu-
iahed on the Herald claim in Brown's
camp, and a splendid showing is re
ported. This property adjoins tiie Minnie and is but one claim fiotu the
tan ous Wolverine. Coin, Campbell,

A great deal of interest is manifested
in this city among mining men in the
development of tiie Pathfinder property
in Evans' camp, 15 miles from Grand
Forks on ihe North Fork of Kett'o
river, which is believed by those who
have examined it to be one of tlie most
promising properties in tbisdistrict.
Tue Pathfinder Mining company has
been organized with f. J. I'arninson
as president, W. A. l'fcill'cr vice president, and J. E. Walker, secretary and
One hundred thousand sharos of
treasury stock has been subscribed by
J. E. Gibson, of Logansport, Ind., who
has also promised to place enough more
of tin* sto.k to permit active work tu bo
carried no through the summer.
The Pathlbider was located in 1893
and eonsiderabte work lias already been
done opon it. Four shafts hava been
sunk to a depth of from Into In feet
ami the vein stripped by opi n cuts in a
number of places. 'J hen has also been
a0x12 foot Bhaft sunk to a depth of TO

toei, all in high grade ore chuto from
the grass root-. 1 hi* oxacl size of the
ledge is npt known as neither iiac. ;
nor foot wall havo been definitely located, but the pay chute in the present
workings is about 15 feet wine.
'l'he ilnujp has been sampled an I
measured by prominent milling men and
found to contain over 100 tons of ore,
running from --"il 50 to 829.5U in valuo,
in samples taken from Ih" du up by
conservative mining men.
'I'l oiupany have pur. ilia set! a pump*
ing plant which is now in Spokane and
will be shipped to tin* mine as soon us
three miles of wagon road an* com*
pleted to it. 'J'li'* residents of Gran !
I''' rks are very hopeful of assistance
from the provincial government in tha
matttr of road building, and those ic
position to know say that considerable
provin?ial money will be spent for roads
in this vicinity this summer. The
mines are being developed far ahead ol
tho transportation facilities ami an extraordinary effort will be made to supply good wagon iiiads.
As soon as a road is complete 1 to the
Pathfinder property the company will
order an aii compressor plant and hoist.
ami it is expected that by the first ot
November the working shall will be
completed to u depth of 150 feet and
work ou a level begun, ami that a 'Hi-
stamp concentrating mill will le m th"
ground. Tlie ore is of such a character that from 85 to 810 can b i saved on
tlie plates in milling, a.-' shown by recent tests.
Nun" business m mi cousid-r that the
railroad i|iu*stio.i hinges upon t at nf
getting a sufficient quantity of ore on
the dumps In make it an objeel for the

great promise of developing into a first-

stocked by a Spokane syndicate under

conversation with a Miner reporter,
Mr. Chirk gave it as his opinion that
Eureka has the making of one uf thu
richest mining camps in this«section of
the country, and if the surface showing,
which is free milling, improves with
depth, as is generally the case, neither
the Fort Steele or ary other district
will compare xitU it. If tin* devol ip-
inent work proves satisfactory in*

IHslamp mill. Mr. Clark gives it a-,
his opinion that this district with proper
railway facilities will prove lo in*  oi i
the greatest in I he north .v.'St: the full
extent of its richness cannot be fully
demonstrated until smelter ami railway
facilities are obtained. He contemplates spending tin* greater portion of

Manly's to build il up, lecidud that
the only safe way is tho right way, acd
t iday their ballots will bo cast for John
Manly. The feeling against McCallum
has grown considerably since it has become known that if by uny chance be
should be elected mayor he will close
up busine6B of every description in tbe
city, When McCallum went to ohe ot
tin- candid it.':-', foi uldei man uml said:
"If w,u will agree to close up everything
i*i the city mi Sunday 1 will vote I'm'
you," he lUtlo know that be was dig*

the city, has been for years a law-abiding
subject of Canadian government, what's
the odds whether Im happened to bo on
Cunadiau soil or some other locality
when lie lirst saw the light of day.
Wk would like to nave some of tho
advocates of Peter McCallum point out
any one tiling that gentleman has ever
done towards building up Grand Forks.
Has he ever spent a cent in advertising
the resources of the town or country?
Is il not a fact that he has always work-
would slip.
T„e mm, who would  not deliver milk  ''" ■■••■"■ *** hand with "''*'-•' movement

We ask every thinking p*rson would it
be to tbe interest of Grand Forks to
elect him mayor?

to tix Grand Forks so that tho prospector cannot e..nn' in from the hills on
Ins only day of rest and get a shave or
a square meal. In order to satisfy his
own religious ideas, McCallum is will-
ing and anxious that th.' prospector or
miner who has worked haul all week in
lie- bi.li- without any of th • comforts of
ol.'. and win) has only one day out of
.-'■veil ii. which to enjoy tho company oE
his l'i n-mls am' acquaintances whom he
meets in the city .m that day, will be

One of tho citioE argu ents used by

Incorporation and is at tho present
time endeavoring to establish a rival
townsite to the detriment of this city.
I cannot conceive how any conscientious resident of Qrand Forks can support Mr. McCallum, although I hear
that a few are so blind to their own
business interests that thoy expect to
vote for him. Tho election of Mr.
Manly should he so positive that it
would forever silence these obstructionists and what you call in the States, I
believe, 'soro-heads.' "
Mr. Mara Believes Tnat One  Will Be
Here very Soon and Gives His
Reasons*—Surprised at any
Opposition to Ma».lv.
J. A. Mara, who lor the past two
sessions of the the provincial parliament has represented Valo district in
lhat body, was iu Qrand Forks last Saturday and Sunday visiting friends and
observing tlie progress of the city. Mr*
Mara is a linn believer in tho future of
Orand ForkB, and he is in a position to
base this belief Upon more subst.ntial
grounds than more personal observation of its surroundings. He is in
touch with tho "powers that be," and is
in a position to speak authoritively in
regard to the provincial policy relative
to this section, and in his opinion Qrand
Forks will not bo long without a rail
In an interview with a Miner representative, Mr. Mara said: "Vou may
say positively, that the provincial government realizes fully the paramount
importance of having a railroad built
int.) tho Boundary country und will
bend every effort to havo a Canadian
road in ahead of competitors from tho
United States, and in this thoy will undoubtedly receive tho support of tho
Dominion government. There are two
reasons why the provincial goVeinnlont
is so deeply interested iu building a
Canadian road into this section, principal of which is that the trade may be
kept on tho Canadian sido. Whon the
resources of this mining district aro begun to be utilised- its trade will be simply enormous, and self protection and
loyalty to homo interests demand thut
it shall flow only through Canadian
"Then thero is another and more direct reason for tapping tho Boundary
country with a road fiour this side of
the line. Tho provincial government
has guaranteed the interest for 25 years
on bonds given for building tho ShUs*
wap and Okanogan railroad and navigation system from the Canadian Pacilic south to Pentieton at tho lower
end of Okanogan lake; and at preemt
this is ar.ything but a paying investment. Now if a railroad connection
were had botwoin Pentieton dnd the
boundary, the Shtlswap and Okanogan
would at once becomo telf Buppot-tlng
and the government be relieved of tho
responsibility of carrying it. Tho people, generally, realize that this section
must bo a groat railroad feeder, and
thoy recognize Orand Forks lis tile
geographical center and distributing
point for the whole of tills mineral division, T'ho niorchatlts itnd oaf itulists;
not only of Victoria but of eastern cities,
have their eye Upon this part of tlio
'country. Popular opinion demands
that this section shall be reached by a
Canadian railroad as soon lis possible,
anil popular opinion is generally public
"Tho provincial government hits offered a bonus of 84,0d0 per mile to lho
railroad which shall lio tho lirst to
build in hero and this is an offer which
will not remain long Uliaccepted, Both
the Canadian Pacilic anil the Columbia
A* Western havo charters which would
hnable them to take advantage of the
bonus at.d I look for ono or tho other
to commence laying tails in this direction very shortly, lho Columbia ti-
Western, which io Mi', lleinze's roatl,
will como in by way of Christiana hike,
passing through or near Cascade City;
und will certainly build into (Irand
Porks, Mr. Ilein/o's smelter at Trail is
capable ot being enlarged   to  tin almost
Unlimited capacity, and the mineral of
this section is un undoubted attraction
for hiin. If the Columbia tit. Western is
the lirst to reach here, traffic* relations
with the Canadian Pacilic will surely
ho established.
"Yes, I believe tliat Orand Forks has
a great future in store. Its position at
tho Confluence of the two groat arm's
of Kettle river, along which the highways to the mines of this section must
rut:, assure the city of its being tho distributing center for all points in the
district, no matter what other townB
may spring up farther back in the hills.
With a progressive and intelligent class
of citizens, Grand Forks cannot helfc
but become one of tho groat mining
and commercial cities of the northweBt,
If the pending municipal election !b
carried the way it should be, there will
be no sot-buck in the city's advance towards prosperity. It Is a strange thing
to me that uny man Should havo the
audacity to aBk to be elevated to the
highest office within tho gift of tho
municipality, when he had so recently
Hone everything in his power to defeat
A Pbospective   Business  Man Tells
What he Thinks About thi;
A gentleman who Intends lo become
permanently Identified with the business interests of (Irand Forks was in
conversation a few evenings ag i with a
ropresentaliVe of The MiNeiI, and
among other things tho coining city
oloction was touched upon. His ideas
in this respect coincide with those of
the brincipal business men of tho city
so far as expressions from them havo
beon heard. He said in part: "Personally I am prejudiced ta neither of
tho candidates for mayor. Personally,
either man would undoubtedly be capable ot filling the office creditably. Hut
in this content all questions of personality must bo absolutely sidetracked
ant] tho votes must bo c ist on purely
fold-blooded business principles. I ho
future of Orand Forks is hanging in
the balance, and upon tho result of tho
coming election there Is much more to
be considered than the mere personal
qualifications of the candidates. A
man must be selected Who is clear-
headedi who possesses keen business
judgment and \Vill be quick to take advantage of any turn that may advance
tho city's interests in any way. Ho
tllust be a man of tho World: one Who is
posted on methods of the capitalists
and Who can correspond intelligently
with them. A man who has handle I
big deals for himself will know how to
handle big deals for others, and I tell
you ritht now that Orand ForkB is going to be a big deal if she gets olf with
the right foot foremost.
"This is not a time to sit idly by and
see other cities with fovVer resources
and loss attractive locations being
pushed to tho front. It is a mistake to
presume Unit a city will grow simply
because it. is fair and has minos back of
it. Pjsh and energy aro required to se-
curo population and wealth. People
aro liko sheep; they liko to dock together and when you get a band
started in ono direction all the rent will
folio*. Now we want to get tho people
headed in this direction und the rest
Will boons}*. But it is going to take
hard work to start the stfthepede* and
wo must have a leader who Is a rustler
and strictiy onto his job.
"If sound senso prevails in tho election this woek, Grand Forks vHII have
put herself on record beforo the ollt-
eitlo word tls being ready for business,
I hope that no mistake will bo made;
and I don't believe there vfcill be.
"There is little hotnr, no pay: and a
great deal of hard work connected with
tho olliee, so tho only question to be
considered is which of the two nien can
do tho city the tlioit good. From what
I have been ablo to learn I believe that
no votei who hail tho intoiosls of tho
city at heslrt should hesitate , about
casting his Vote for John  Manly."

"'llear Sir I enquire you copies of

by P, T. McCallum, signed by Inn self
and his friends, ih their attempt to defeat the Incorporation of Grand Forks.
The inconsistency of tho man! After
doing everything he and his allies could
to keep 11 rand Forks from going ahead.
leaving no stone unturned to defeat
everything that would benefit the city,
after sending Buch a petition as this,
which reflects the . haracter of the man
sending it. he now winds to bee..mo
mayor of tho ci'y he tried to kill. 'Consistency, thou art a jewel.'
*l am certain McCallum will be defeated at th" polls as he should be,
and a well deserved rebuke administered to I,im fur his exhibition of eon*
"il and nerve. Certainly, no sensible
businessman would vote to put u mini
iu this position of trust, who has tried
to betray their financial interests ns
11 nun McCallum lias done. He certainly will be defeated end Gram!
I orks will continue to grow. V mis
