Grand   Forks'   First   Fire
Thursday Night.

Small Frame Dwelling oh Main Street
Eurned to the Ground -Ad-
jdining   Buildings
About 10 o'clock last Thursday evening, as our peaceful citizens wore retir-
Ing for the night, the ertiro town was
btartlad by tho cry ot "Fire!   Fire!''
Rushing out of doors a lurid glow in
the western part of tovVn soon located
Hie blaze in a small duelling hoOse dd
Mam street. The entire building was
a sheet of flame before anything cobld
lie done So all efforts **vere directed to
lhe saving of the adjoining building,
owned by David Woodhoiid and occupied by Mrs. Nye.
All of Mrs. Nye's household guoils
were gotten out and for a time it seemed
as thoiigii the building must surely go,
but Ed Posey cliihbed Upon the roof
and with a blanket thrown over him
faced the terrible heat froiu the burn-
ing building, which was only about lo
feet distant, and kept the roof Wet iin-
lil the tiro tad died, down mid tho Build-
iug was saved,
The building in which tlie tire EHitrted
was owned by VV. J,Penrose and was unoccupied. I'.iperhangeis and painters
had been busy during the week putting
on the finishing touches. Spontaneous
c inibustion seems to bo tho only way to
account for the origin ot the blaze. Tho
building which was totally .destroyed
was uninsured.   Loss about $101*.
■ .Steps are being taken- to organise a
backet brigade io order to bo prepared
for other mishaps of .this kind which
are sure to come'sooner or later.

a delightful place—otle of the beautiful

splendid country for growing fruits of

it is ribH in gold aiid in the surrounding
mountains, I understand, are some very
good mining properties which at tho
present time are only bsing slightly developed, but In tho course oE pfil'haps
only a few inonthS you will huve railroad communication here aud then no

a railroad being here in a very Bhdi't

yaars, Grand Forks  will  bo a fine city.
"I was much pleased to learn of Mr,
Manly's elecliun as first ulayorof (Irand

Mr. Chas. < umings, manager of tho
Townsite Co., who In,- bd3n spen ling a
week in Spokane, was asked last night
by a MiNKii representative what was
the drift nf soutimont in th it 'ity rel.i
tive to mining. Etc replied; "VoU
would be surprised ij sec bow well
posted everyone appears to be in regard
to the itincs ot this section and tbo way
things are going in this city. 1 talked
with no ono who did not believe that
this section would eventually lead them
all and that Grand Forks wojld bo ono
cf the most pi-Jiuineni if not the fore-'
most city of the mining country. And
they look at this i.i j. different light
from ulost of the netf sections in that
none of them seems to d mlit thai ihis
town and section will be substantial in
its growth and will have an element of
stability that is not so certain in somo
localities. I heard as taiichj if not niore,
talk abnUt Grand Forks than 1 did concerning any other town or ca.np. Uf
course, it is the general impression that
tho lack of railroad facilities is acting
as a brake on tbo rapid d valopment of
businers bore, but I'll tell yod what it
is, this piaco star.da all right on tlie outside."

THE    KA'iti.NI)    IUBILEE.
Tl    '.■ e:   ary Creek Ti       ■■: (Ireen-
wood i ii.\. ii. its iesu. of IhbI  Saturday
a rn nits us follows:
•■I 'r i.. tl " lasl isi ue of Ibe (Irand
Forks Miner we gather that it is the in*
lention to celebrate at Grand forks
the Queen's Diamond Jubilee on th"
I ofJuhe, instead of, as previously
aunouueed, commemorating the Amor
jenn day of rejoicing -the lib of July.
IVhi er i*- resp msible for ihis change
of plan certainly deserves commendation, .'ind no doubt lhe newly ele led
major, Mr. Manly, (to whom, bythe-
way, we offer hearty congratulations
upon the—to him and his supporters—
satisfactory result of the recent municipal contest) saw tho questionable taste
of celebrating in a Canadian town tho
anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, au event lo which while the
citizens of the Groat Republic may fittingly do honor, is hardly as associated
with English history an occurrence
lhat Englishmen are proud to remember. Americans and Canadians aro ex-
.''lent friends, and the cousinly relationship is rarely strained; why. th. re-
I'ore, make a display of the family skeleton?"
The iu alter of holding this year's celebration was fully discussed at tho
council meeting held last Saturday
night, and the council adjourned with a
unanimous determination to make tin
I liamond Jubilee au occasion long to be
I'emembered in this section of the country. And the Times rightly remarks
that this is as it should be. Never in
lhe history of Great Britain has a
sovereign stood at lhe head of this
great nation for so long a time.
.■md il is Bafo I" say tliat ages may come
and u> eie another "diamond jubilee"
will be celebrated, On the 22d day of
June a full tide of rejoicing should circle tbe earth with the sun, and wherever the Union Jack floats a loyal people, diversified as the antipodes in everything except their love for the Queen,
should devote this day to joyful thanksgiving. A greater day has net er been
lolebratod in tho great British Empire,
and excepl as additional homage may
bo paid to Quoon Victoria as tho yearn
of her reign increase, a greater one
never wil; be.
t,riu.d Forks will give tbo great day
proper recognition a.id she invites her
sister cities and towns lo join hands
witii her jn making tlio Diamond Jubi-
■ celebration th" grandest that tho
Kettle ri vi r and Boundary country has

Everything   Passed   Off   Successfully
and Everybody Had a Thoroughly Enjoyable
The celebration of the Queen's birth-
Jay at Greenwood I ity on Monday last
was a most successful and enjoyublo af-
Talf. .The day was bright and clear and
eytyything passed oil well,
Tho principal interest centered on
the races and other sports which were
under the auspices of u committee com*
pored of Messrs. Nelson, Comstock, F.
IS. Smith, Ouirie, Liaray, Galloway,
lireslaucr, Black, Sutherland and Hodgson.
First on the program was a trotting
or pacing race, bu'; ue there were no entries this was scratched, Then came a
running race with four entries; Salem,
Curlew Iloli, Johnny and Maud. Salem
won the tiist two heats and the taco,
Next was a saddle horse race straight
away dash. There were three entries
for this event; Ply, Skookum aud Gray
Bird) Fly winning after a hotly contested race,
At noon a royal salute was fired which
fairly shook the surrounding hills.
Immediately alter dinner a laiiee'
saddle race was run; this was probably
the most exciting race of the day,
There were three entries; Mrs Winter,
riding Fly; Mrs. McOlung, on Little
Brownie, and Miss Hopper on Gray
Nellie; the riders crossing tlie finish lino
in tiie order named.
Tiou came the sports of the day.
These were open to ad comers and were
very interesting.
First on the program was a sack race
run by Messrs Hoflstetter, Meddill and
Coryell.   Won by Meddill.
Por tho 100 yard foot race there jp'ere
entered Johhny Snodgrass, Jack Hull'*

I'. li, Smith won tho high jump with
it jump of 1 feet 8 inches:
The crowd then adjourned to Government street whero the drilling contest took place, a tea-n from the Sunset
mino and one from the Canadian competing. Ihe Sunset boys had bad luck
with their drills, several breaking. The
result was; Sunset team, 13 1*8 inches;
('ana lian team, 11* 3*8 inches.
Last on the program was the tug of
war, Greenwood vs. all' comers. This
resulted in a defeat for Greenwood, tho
outsiders proving ti heavy for then..

Council Last Saturday.'
Committee Selected to Arrange For a
Grand Celebration oil the Diamond Jubilee   Licensing
Board Eecommended*
TheseQopiJ meeting ot the city council held huit Sal unlay evening iu the
Orand Forks Club rooms, was lull of
iimportant busjnes-*. A corps of ollicers
for the enduing term was selected with
tho exception of a city solicitor whoso
appointment was deferred until tho
next mooting. The officers appointed
aro as follows* OlerK, H. S. Cayley;
constable, S. V. Ilepworth; treasurer,
Et. McCaren; assessor, James Addison;
engineer, J. H. Featherston) steno
grapher, Harriot S. Sheads.
There was no contest for any of the
offices except those of cleik and constable. For the position of clerk, j. A,
Aikman, John IJ. Swanson and II, S.
Oayley had applications tiled and tho
■ballot resulted; Oayley, it; Swanson, %\
'Aikman,!. For constable, S. I". Hep-
ivoith received 1 votes. A. VV. Preslar 2,
and Jas. W. Seals, 1,
Tho constable's salary was fixed at
•■?50 per month, and tho clerk's at *?i").
On the other officers' salaries no action
'was taken. For city solicitor the only
applicant was A. C. Sutton, and tho
appointment to this position was deferred for a week upon motion of A Ider*
man L. A. Manly, in order, as lie said,
to give the other attorneys of tho city a
chance. •
■ The matter of recommending to the
lieutenant-governor two men 'for 'appointment on the licensing board was
discussed. As explained by Mr. Cayloy,
•the board consists of the mayor, police
paagistrate and ono member appointed
by the lieutenant.governor. Hut in
case the c<ty haa'no-police magistrate,
then tho lieutenant-governor appoints
two members of the board. Fetor T,
McCallum, who was' present1 at tho
meeting, claimed that'orily one name
should 02 recommended for appointment, but Mr; Ckyloy deiholistruted
that it would be necessary'to recommend two. A ballot was taken upon
the names of W, K. 0. Manly, R'. McCaren an 1 P. T. McCailuui, which resulted; Manly, -J; McCaW.-'n, 5; McCallum, 5. The clerk was directed to notify
the lieutenant-governor of tlio result.
The present hotel licenses in this city
expire -Tune 30 audit is necessary for
spet-dy'actbn to be taken in organizing
the board in order that they may act
upon the next licenses.
Upon, motion of Dr. Hepworth tho
mayor was authorised to negotiate a
loan of 82,000 to meet tho present running expenses of the city,
The clerk was instructed to notify
the assessor to procure assessment
Rills for JOT for road work wero referred to the committee on finance
Tho warmest discussions of tho evening was precipitated by a motion of Dr,
Ilepworth that the city give official
recognition to June 2*2, the Diamond
Jubilee, as a public holiday, L. A,
Manly, who had already begun preparations for a big celebration lasting
through the 3d, -ith and 5th of July,
opposed the proposition to make the 22d
more than a formal holiday, on the
grounds that a greater crowd of visitors
could bo secured on the {th of July, and
that as a money making schctrjo and
advertisement for tho city the latter
date would be by all tpcans preferable.
After fully discussing tho i'U**stion,
however, it was decided to oxpend oyery
pcergy and all the money that could be
raised in making the Diamond Jubileo
pelebration, which will last through tho
22d and 23d of June, the most magnli-
cent that this section of tho country
has ever witnessed. Tho city will appropriate a snug sum, just how much
has not yet boen determined, and a subscription list will bs circulated among
the business men of the city, somo of
whom havo expressed their willingness
to donate liberally to tlie cause. One
thing is certain, and that is that no
stone will be left unturned to mako
this alFuh* an ucparalelled success.
L. A. Manly, W. O. Hepworth and
P, J. Davis wero appointed a committee
of the council to act with a citi/,ons'
committee in arranging tho celebration.
An adjournment was then lakon till 1:30

Surprised at tlio Population of This
Section—Peter Larsou, the Helena Millionaire Interested in
Deaiwood Camp,
A party consisting of F. W. Gilbert
and Thos. Wren, of Spokano, PetOr Larson, of Helena, Mont., and T. L. Grdea-
ough, Missoula, Mont.,' were in Grand
Forks about tho midcllo of last woek
and again on Sunday, having come up
to look at the Great Hopes properly in
Wellington camp which is owned by tho
thrie gentlemen last named, and upon
which considerable work is boing dono.
They seemed to be .veil satisfied with
the prospect and Mr. Giecnough stated
that tho ore from this property would
pay to ship in wagons.
Mr. Gilbert is division superintendent of tlio Northern Pacilic railway for
eastern Washington. Whon asked by a
Minkt; representative whether his visit
boj'e any significance in regard to railroad building into this section, Mr, Gilbert replied: "This is more of a pleasure
trip for me than anything else; thore is
not much business connected with it.
I havo wished for a long timo to visit
this section, so took advantage of this
opportunity. I am surprised at finding
so large a population here; thero are a
great many more peoplo than I expected to see. I consider this a very
desirablo section for a railroad to enfer,
but cannot, of course, say what ate the
piaiiB of tho Northern Pacifig in regard
to coming aftor tfiis trade. Thoro is a
great interest being taken in this country on tho outside—a wonderful interest. What yop need hero moro than
anything else is development ot yoiir
mineral resources.''
Mr. Larson, pf Helena, is reported to
be worth in tho neighborhood of three
million dollars. His mining operations
aro ijuito extensive both in this country
and the |Jntted States, and ho is also a
noted railroad contractor. There is not
a now railroad contemplated in tho west
that Mr. Larson is not cognisant of,
and tho fact of ho and Mr. Gilbert boing hero together looks very significant
to say tho least. Mr. I^arson and Mr.
Greenough are heavily interested in

Returning from Pentict *n, Mr, Truax
covered the distance cf 120 miles j'n two
days with a singla team, which will give
an idOa of the condition tho road is in.
He s.iys that l;:*t.*,o ti Pentieton and
Greenwood thoro is a groat deal of work
being done on Ihe road, although il is
in belter Condition now than tho road
from Qran'i Forks to tho boundary lino
toward Marcus. Mr, Truax passed five
camps of road workers, and says that
men aro stationed all along tho line doing section work, picking up slimes,
filling tho ruls which may be made,
clearing away rallen trees, etc. Then
the grade is being widened, new turning
out places made, culverts bein.* put in
wherever there was a mud hole in'the
spring, and in fact, enough governmental
attontion being paid to this road to
oreate the impression that there is au
immenso trallic ovor it, as though it
wero the m -st important road of tho
Tho Tact is that live tim?s as much
traffic comes ovor the road from Edwards' ferry—on the boundary line—to
Grand Forks as passes ovor the road to
Pentieton, and yet, as Mr. Truax was
told at Camp McKinney, Mr. CuppagO
has allowed 82,000 for work on 50 miles
of road from Pentieton to Camp Mc*
Kinney, while he allowed a paltry 8200
fbr work from Grand Forks to Edwards'
ferry, and that,' too, to repair a road
which was ip'infinitely worse shape bo*
cause of the heavy trofile'over'i'f than
the road from Pentieton to (amp McKinney.
Ono'madholo on the Qrand Forks
road cost the city 857. It should have
been llxcd by tho government but was
delayed until tho cily was fore.d to repair it or hnvo a freight blockade within
sight of the city. The expense to the
city, however, was little es compared
with tho h.ss to freighters and merchants through tho wagons miring down,
or upsetting in an effort to get out of
tho hole, freight becoming wet or
broken, and timo lost in making tho detour of half a day around tho mire.
Betwoon Grand Forks and Gieeu-
wood, a distance of 25 miles, only two
men aro at work and they aro on the
Greenwood sido of tbo summit. It bo-
gins to look like tho road commissioner
has an axo to grind with this city and
is making USD of his ufliji.il position to
vent ap.irsonal spite.

The Cracker Jack Group at
Christina Lake.
Evtrj   One   01   the Group Whioh Has
Been Develo] e i Shows up Well
Iu Cre From the
Grass Eoots,
Tho Cracker Jack group at Christina
laki is attracting considerable attention
jt ;| ni present owing to tho amount ol
l"v!"pi!.!Ti, 'I"ii" mnl the fine showings
n hi di are being made,
l his now well known group o[ claims
consistsof seven properties of more than
ordinary  merit,  whioh  are situated on
■ the east side  ul  Christina   lake.   They
are owned  by   I >.  ('. Beach atd others
who are living or, thoir claims and open*
'ing them up   with   all   possible speed.
Thi first, and probably th*3 bo=t known
' claim in the group is tlr-
Possessing several well-defined ledgos
which are found in a diorite formation.
A  shaft  has  bein  sunk  on one of the
lead  to n depth  of  about    L5 feet and
was in solid ore  from  tho grass roots,
■assaying   at   the   bottom   of the (-haft
840 in gold and silver,
The  Victoria
I? also n high grade proposition, liav-
ing the same Cracker Jack leads passing
through  it.   Work is now  being don;
. ;i this claiii) i'1   tbe  way  of running u
' tunnel,
The Copper riouniuin.
Is identically  of  tho'samo formation
aa tho two former properties  and  is re-
'garded by mining  men ns one that will
'be n nong the curliest   producing mines
in Christina lako district.   Al present a
force ut men  are  at  work opening up
this claim,  and  judging  from the ore
'that  comes   fr nn    theso  workings, tho
Copper   Mountain   will   yet   l.e  heard
lhe Champion.
Lies next to tho Ci pper Mountain,
and is principally a cupper and gold
proposition aseveii the tenderfoot pros-
"poctor can fell by inspecting tlie crop*
'p':i gs of the ledges oh this claim whioh
are rich in copper Btain and j pyrites of
co* per, making it a must desirable
'chini to own.
The Helena.
Another if this'valuable group of
claims joins tli. Champion und takes
'.u a rich Eijuare of mineral ground
'within its lines. Assays huvo been
mule from surfuce croppings of theso
properties running into tho twenties in
go'.d alone, to say nothing of the other
y din s.
flinnle Ball Fraction.
Is n fraoti inal claim and lies next to
Uu* famous Cannon Bull property, Al-
^1 u ugh Ihis claim is only u fraction, it
■jntains a rich doposit of tho yellow
metal, as was shown from the oro produced at the completion if the assess-
i: ent just finished on this claim,
Evening 5t.ii.
The last of the group lias several
strong iron caps crossing its surface
i nl it is hard for its owners to decide
where is Ihe best place to commence,
development work as almost tho entire
tiaim is covered with a mineralized
(surface. The peculiarity about the
group of claims is the fact that what is
y merally known as iron capping whon
found on these properties is so thin as
to expose tho ore on the surface, having
■.oinpnratively little work to be done by
lhe prospector. Already capitalists are
(liking an interest in this group, and it
js learped on good authority that an
English syndicate is negotiating for the
burchase of the Cracker Jack group.
Amendments to Milling  Laws.

The Corbin System to be Consou-
dated and Mortgaged,
A gentleman who enjoys tho conddenco of
I» ('.Corbin, and wlio was in Nelson a fow
days since, is the authority for th-a statement
that the Corbin system ot railways will to extended to tho heart of the Moundary ereek UIh-
trict at tho earliest possible date.
The present season te liable lo wil ness a
inoBl exciting race betwe in Corbin and August
ili-inze ns lo wbii'li shall be first to build a
railway into the Kettle rivor country,
Mr. Heinze has Obtained important nsslstauoo
trpm thp prpviucial government In tiio matter   ■
of subsidies and  te supposed   to bo on  tbo   !
friondliest terms with   tii"  Canadian  Pacific   I
railway company.   However, President t'orbin   |
of the Spoliano   Falls a: Northern  appears  to
hflvo arrived at the conclusion that the  great   ■
resources of the Boundary creek country would
prove highly  prolftable  to him should he be
able to monopolize the transportatign business
of this district.
The Corbtn system at present consists of tho '
Nelson A: Fort Sfteppard, the Spokane Falls &
Northern aud the Red Mountain railway.'*;.
Kneh line is owned by a separate corporation,
although Mr. Corbia is the controlling factor
in all three.
The Miner's informant declares that arrangements are now being made by which these
three lines will be consolidated undor ono
company,and tbcontiro property will be covered by a blanket mortgage. The money thus
obtained will bu used iu constructing the
Boundary creek extension. It is expected that
New York financiers will be induced to furnish lhe money so that the work of grading
will b.'commenced this summer,
The proposed extension will run fromNorth*
port, thence up Sheep prcek, thence into tho
Kettlo river valley at tbe southern, end of
Christina lake and so westward toGraud Forks.
Mr. Corbin's engineers claim thai this is the
shortest and most feasible route to tlio Boundary orook district.
Engineers of the Columbia A- Western rail
way havo completed their survey for a railway
extondlng from a point opposlto Robson on
the Columbia river. The route, after following
the banks of the Columbia for a short distance
northward, turns to the west and by ft circuitous rou|o winds through tiie gold range to
the southern end oi Christina lake. From
thence to Grand Forks, the Heinze road will
follow the- same course as the Corbiu line.
The Interesting question is: Whleh railway
will be first to reach tho Kettle river valley?
Wh'le President Corbin's route is the shortest
he lias not yet raised the necessary funds with
which to build his extension. On the other
hand, Mr. Ilein/.e has the benefit ol fat subsidies from tha provincial government and is
said to have all financial arrangements completed—Nelson Miner.
