Elected the First Mayor of
Grand Forks.
The Oouteat'Was Very Spirited but Net-
as Closo hfi Many  Expected—
Scramble for Appointive
Offices  Begins.
The election of Grand Forks' first
mayor and board of aldermen hist Saturday, wns au occasion long to be remembered on account of tbe extraordinary interest attending it. Ever since
it was officially announced that the
election would take place, the event has
been the chief topic of conversation
with almost every resident in tho city,
aud many a midnight caucus has been
1. jld by tho supporters of both candidates for mayor.
The main tight of the contest was
made on the mayoralty, notwithstanding the fact that many of tho supporters
of Mr. Manly claimed his election by a
big majority, thero wero others who
were of tho belief that tho contest
would bo extremely close. So far as
tho aldermanic candidates were concerned, very little attention was paid to
them, and there was not one of the lot
who polled the full vote that was cast.
The polling was done between the
hours cf 10 a. m. and 1 p. m., and the returning officer was kept busy administering oaths to voters whose right to
vote was questioned by the different
eandidates. Fully half an bout* previous to tho opening of the polls, a fair-
sized crowd had congregated in front of
the sohoolhouse door anxious to register their votes aud when the polls were
opened Mr. Hugh McGuiar stepped to
the window and recorded his vote,
thereby claiming the honor of casting
tho Hrst vote at the lirst municipal election held in the city of Grand Forks,
During the polling a closo check was
made of those who voted, und until the
proceedings terminated would tho sup-
i orters of Mr. McCallum acknowledge
defeat, Considerable monoy changed
hands on the result, but the beat of
good feeling prevailed throughout the
.'uy and not even a dog fight was
"jumped up" to detract from tho inter-
est centered in tho mayoralty contest.
Of the 715 votes registered, 03 were
ca;t for mayor, two of Mr, Manly's
votes being thrown out owing to some
irregularities in the marking. W. K. C.
Manly received tho greatest number of
voles for aide: man, and .!. il. Featherston the lowest.
Tho vote for mayor was:
John A, Mfittly	
P, 'i  MeCaliuiu	
.. .4:1
Manly's majority 20
Tho vote for couucilmon was;
Lloyd A. Manly II
W.K. c Manly 40
\V. ii. Hepworth -M
p. J. Davis   II
K. in it. ml luii'iil'd -u
J. K. Johnson :*i

The work of counting the ballotB was
concluded about C o'clock and when tbo
lesult wus announced on tho streets the
supporters of John A. Manly beenmo
hilarious, handshaking was general and
it loyal salute was tired, which was tho
commencement cf a jubilee which con-
tinned far into the night; as they felt
sure in securing the election of Mr,
Manly Ihey had placed a man at the
head of the city government who would
v.oik untiringly for lhe advancement
and prosperity of tho city of Grand
Early In the evening the friends
of Join, A. Manly gathered at his residence to express their satisfaction over
the result of the election and congrat u*
late him upon boing elevated to the
highest position within the gift of tho
municipality. The spacious parlor was
crowded with friends and neighbors i f
tho new mayor, and among the number
wore many who had been opon supporters of tin* opposing candidate, but
who, after tho election was over, took
pleasure in greeting tbe victor and
pledging their assistance in laboring
I'm- the advancement of tho city's interests.
Tho gathering wub an entirely in
formal ono and was brim foil of a tooling of good fellowship. Various amusements served to enhance the pleasures
of the evening, among them boing dancing aud impromptu singing, Messrs.
Ilepworth and Shoads, with violin and
piano, furnishing the music, Mrs. Manly
was the life of the wholo company, and
shared equally in the popular expression
of  gratitude   at   the   selection   of  Mr.
Manly as mayor of Grand Forks.
The second act in lhe play I
tho boards and the race for the v ous
appointive offices promise:! to be as
spirited as tho lirst one on tho bills, tho
aspirants coming to tne front like a
quarter horso on tho home stretch.
Just how many officials the board of aldermen wili deem necessary to manage
tbo affairs of the city remains to be
Tlm first heal to bo trotted will I e
that of city clerk", although it may bo
possible that tbe judgi - ' i include
to scratch this off tbo list and combino
it with the second. Up to the time of
going lo press there are three ontrys,
viz; II. *-!. Cayley, John D. Swahson
and A. C, Sutton.
The next on tho program will be tho
city solicit.irship. This will be a free-
for-all go-as-you please, and will have
four contestants for lirst piece, Messrs.
Aikman, Hwanton, t'ayley and Sutton,
In the event 11.ere should be an extra
on the program the friends of Mr. James
Addison are very quietly advocating his
appointment as city assessor, claiming
that owing to bis wide experience as a
builder and contractor he is bottorquali-
fled to place a more equitable value on
property than a person who ia not ac*
quainted with the cost of building. J.
IL Featherston, the mining engineer
and assayer, is also an aspirant for this
position and has a large following who
seem to feel confident that if tho office is
created ho will bo tho successful man,
Theraoofor city con:.'.;'::'- promised
to be interesting and closely contested,
Like the city solicitorship thoro are four
in the field, Messrs. Frank Fortior, A
Preslar, James Seal and Richard The-
rien, any one of whom the Mikeb h of
tho opinion would lid tbo office satisfactorily.
In tbe event it should  becomo   a   lei
fury to  have a custodian  of  the
funds, the friends of  Mr. Rich ai
Carren are of the opinion that he would
bo a proper person to sign  the cheques
Tho lirst meeting of tho city council
of Grand Forks, met at 12 o'clock noon
today, whon tho mooting .vat, adjourned
to 7:110 this evening.

A Prominent  U.  S.   Land   Attorney
Tells What He Thinks of
Qrand Forks.
■VroTICE IS HEREBY   GIVEN   that   Ezra Iu-
With this issue Tin: MlNi.n enters upon the second year of its career as an
advocate of the future gieatness of the
Kettle River divison of the Yale district,
as a tnii ing Bection, and tbe advantages
offered by Qrand Forks as a place of
residence and the principal business center .if the district, How wed tlii.-i
mission has been fullilled in the past
we will leave for others to judge, Fully
appreciating the fact there is no town
within the limits of this district having
such a bright and desirable future as
Qrand Forks, which every indication
goes to show will shortly enjoy u phenomena! growth and become a place of
great commercial importance, Tin*.
Miner is perfecting arrangements where
by this journal will bn so improved as a
medium for the publication of news, not
only of this vicinity, but the entire Kettle River an! Boundry Creek districts,
that it will rank as the leading nows-
paper of the district, and among tho
foremost nf British Columbia,
Xew presses,type, machinery and other
appliances will be added to place US in
a position to do all kinds of printing,
from a visiting card to a full sheet poster in colors, ctiual to any similar institution in the province.
I'lie eleetors have declared that the
lien. John A. Manly be the first mayor
of Qrand Forks and from the majority
he received there can bo noqrtestion but
that they were others who coincided
with the AIinku in the opiniotl that he
was the right man for tho place. That
his reign will be based upon thorough
business like, economic and progressive
methods, no one who is acquainted with
that gentleman will doubt.
Upon tho incoming council, more than
anyone else, rests the grave responsibility of inaugurating a Systeiii of goverh*
ment that shall bo for the advancement
of the city, and it is placed in the priiver
of that body to establish a policy Uy
which (irand Forks will at no distant
day rank as the most desirable place to
reside, as well as lieing the business
center an 1 distributing point for tho
Kettle Kiver and lioundary Creek districts, as well as the reservation. In
order to bring about this state of affairs
the greatest care and judgtilent liiust lie
exercised, and the efforts of those who
are delegated with this responsibility
should be aitled by every citi'/en who
has the interest of the city at heart. Let
the feeling,whicli is liodntl to bo tlio outgrowth of every hotly contested cahi-
paign. lie huried and instead tf tbe
factional light being continued as has
been the case heretofore] the united efforts of the entire town be directed in
one channel—that of building one of
the most prosperous and beautiful cities
in the province,
As the business interests of the gentlemen who compose the first board of
aldermen are largely centered here, thero
seems to be no i*ueStion but that they
will uso their best endeavors to place
lhe city on a perfectly sound business
in conclusion the MlNEB desires to
state that as a citizen it has tbe highest
regard for Mr. P. T. McCallum. who is
a gentleman of sterling qualities, respected and held in the highest esteem
by all who are fortunate  enough to  be
acquainted with him.
We learn on good authority that Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney and the lion.
(J. li. Marten contemplate paying this
district a visit in the near future.
The scramble for appointive otlices
has already com men -ed.

A Gbeenwood Firm Trying to Cor-
iial the Pass Cukeh Trade.
Rendell &. (Smailes the well known
Greonwood firm have made arrangements to deliver goods anywhere on Pass
creek for the saxo cost as they can be
obtained at the company's store in
This stroke of enterprise on the part
of this firm, if something is not dono
by our merchants to offset it, will bo
quite a pull toward turning tho trade of
that section to Greenwood) which properly belongs to this place.
A New Townsite.
Last year the government reserved a
block of land at th- mouth „f Pass creek,
which empties into the North Fork Of
Kottle rivor several miles above tho town
of Grand Forks,
A reservation was put upon the land
as it was considered it would be valuable owing td the fact,of its being upon
the surveyed route of the Columbian &
Western and Vancuuvor, Victoria &
Eastern railways, and is located at a
point where it is expected that either of
these roads Aould after running up the
North Folk turn suddenly tf-est and enter the pass through tfhlcih Pass creek
Believing the present to bo ii propitious Utile in which to put this property
on the market; thegovernuiont hits given
Mr. J. A. Coryeil instructions to sitrvey
this land into town lots, a duty he Is now
performing, and as booh as tho stllvoy
is complete dnd approve!; tho people of
the district will be given an opportunity
of acquiring soriie real estate at this
point shoilld they so desire.—Midway
Ma. Norms, government agent from,
Vernon, it is rumored will pay Grand
Forks an ollicial tit-it sumii time tho
last of this month or the lirst of June.
Let steps be taken at once to collect the
necessary data relative to the needs of
this Bection in the way of, rouda and
trails, with a map of the North Fork
and Pass creek districts, showing the
number ot locations! those that aro now
being worked, etc., so that they can be
properly placed beforo that gentleman
on his visit here', so ho can obtain something of a correct idea of thecondnion of
affaire, and we fool safe in predicting
that good results will be obtained.
A New Ferry.
Owing to the increase of travel up1 the
main Rettle river and the rfest fork of
the same, it has been fotind necessary to
furnish some means hy whicli prospectors and others may readily ctobs the
West Fork; a stream which Just now is
ijuite forttiidilblo but which in the fall
may bo forded conveniently. The fact
that largo mineral areas, practically un*
proBpected but known to be rich in copper antl gold, lie to tho north and west
of RocK Croek, being recognized, quite
a number of men aro turning tHeir attention in that direction and that their
progress may not be checked, Mr. Mc-
Pherson has decided to at once construct
a ferry to bo operated upon the 6tream
above referred to. This will be in use
for the ne'St two or three liionthii and
wid be a great convenience to travelers
nhil it is to bo Hoped ii source of profit
to the enterprising proprietor.—Midway
The Hon. John A. Rea of Olympia,
Washington, who spent laBt week in
Grand Forks in inquiring into the resources and possibilities of this section,
was asked by a Miner representative:
"What do you think of this country!"
"As we say in tho states, it is a great
country! I can understand, now what
we lost; when Jamee K. Polk agreed to
the present boundary line on the 49th
paralell. Fifty-four-forty or tight! tho
campaign cry of 1814, elected Polk, but
it did not enlarge our territory on the
north. Even if Mr. Polk had compro.
mised upon paralell fifty-one, all of thiB
famous area south of Rovelstroko would
have been American soil. An imaginary line, however, should not interfere
with tho growth and development of
that area. Tho absonco of commercial
union, may handicap both sides, but I
believe thero is so much wealth in the
mountains between Crow's Nest on the
east and Okonagan lake on tho wost,
and Revelstoke on the ncrth and Grand
Forks on the south, that no artificial
nandicap can defeat it. Within the
lltnite of tbo comparatively narrow Bection described, you have an almost uq-
rivaled climate, unlimited mineral re-
Bourcesi an abundance of tine merchantable timber, and some of the most beautiful agricultural valloys' on the continent. Your mineral wealth is typied in
the LeRoi and Slocan Star, and your agricultural wealth in John A. Manly's
magnificent ranch, and your climate iu
these fair days.
"In the midst of such an environment]
cities will grow. You will have another
one in Qrand Forks. My reason for believing that your town Will be a city is
primarily founded upon your location.
It is a strategic location. A railroad
from the east, the Columbia and Western; Hein«e's road, or the Spokarte,
Northern, Corbin's road, ulust pass
through this place. The topography of
the country forces tho road your way.
You occupy the pass."
''When do you think we will get a
"Conditions favor it this J-ear. I wodld
not be suprised to see a race between
Corbin and Heinfce. The first road that
reaches Cascade and Kettle river will
have tile advantage. From Northport
up Sheep creek is Undoubtedly Corbin's
rodte and Heinle's is frotil Robson down
the edst Side of Chridtina lake to Kettle
ri-fer. Cobin's roilte Is the shortest but
Ileinsto is probably the swifost than bf
lho two. You are doing so much here
and ptojecting bo ttidch moro; tHflt the
sagac'iods railroad mdn tHiist see thdt
there la business foi* tl roid; Cdhbln's
l*ecent experience with his Spokdne
Nokhetm thu6t convince hint that a tilin-
ing country is a dividend payer. He
must be familiar with Grand Forks,
"the gateway of the great Kettle River
tlnd Boundary Creek districts;" as Jim
Hill's folders ca'l it. He nldat knovf'
the possibilities of your mineral ledges;
the fertility of your valleys and tho
splendid location of their cotnthercuil
center. The same is trite of Heinle, it
will be a great surprise it he does not
start we'd aB soon as his road to Robson
is built. He has a land grant of c-120;-
000 acres per mile, nearly as milch per
mile as the great grant to the Northel'n
Pacific and with a cash subsidy beside;
it looks as if he would not be slow to
anticipate any move by Corbin."
In American slang and a single phrase:
"Grand Forks is all right."

From the Development of Minks
Near Grand Forks.
J. II. Perkins of Grand Forks, B. C,
is spending ti few days in the city. Ho
said last evening: "There Is considerable development going on in tho mines
in that vicinity, and 1 look for some
big results as development is progressing. The Volcanic and Seattle Claims
are Ihe most prominent in the district,
and bid fair to make big producers of
ore. The surface showing is certainly
enormoUs, Tlio Bonita is another promising property, ai.d is being steadily
worked. There are other claims on the
.North Fork from live to ten tulles from
Orand Forks which the owners expect
to make mines of. Among Ihem are the
Pathfinder, Coin, R-Bell, Bonanza, Independence and Minnie, all of them more
or lors developed. Tho Minnie has A
shaft down 00 feet. The assays of the
oro from the bottom of tho shaft show
that tho property possesses merit.
"Tho town of Grand Forks is in a
flourishing condition, and is growing
rapidly. An election takes place tomorrow. The registration was 53 when
I loft, and has probably increased to fJO
by this time. For myself, I am an enthusiastic supporter of John A. Manly.*'
— Spokesman Review.
Q'hky are Alright if he Carries Them
Mr. C. V. Cuppage, superintendent of
roads and bridges tor this district, who
is at present making a tour of inspection of this vicinity looking into the
condition of the roads aud trails, was in
Greenwood the other day and in an interview with a representative of tho
Boundary Creek Times said:
"Is it true,'- he was asked, "that as reported in the Vernon News the appoint
ment of another road superintendent
has been made?"
"No; tho News was ovidontly m*sin-
fornied, Vou see I have been trying to
get men lo work on tho roads who would
accept time checks payable 11 ixt July;
ut tho same time J reserved tho right to
dismiss men when 1 thought lit. A good
many whom 1 employed objected to this
and demanded their pay when thoy wore
dismissed. Hut I succeeded 111 getting
three gaijgs to work and I wo foremen,
and 1 then went to Veinon and engaged
Mr. Bates as foreman for the third gang.
He has eight men undor him."
••What do you think of the old arrangement of waiting until the revenue
has been collected bofore the roads aro
repaired T"
'•I think il altogether absurd, and
what I propose to do is this: I havo
asked for a pretty large appropriation
this year and I mean to reserve an ado
quate sum (say three or four thousand
dollars) for putting tho road in a decent
state of repair in the spring. That is
decidedly the best time of the year for
carrying out the work on tlio roads, for
you can see just whore the bad and impassable spots are. Thero has been a
good deal of kicking this year, and
merely for the sake of peace and quietness 1 have on oiu or two occasions advanced money and paid men out of my
own pocket and paid men to improve
parts of tho main road which wero in
particularly bad condition. Really
though, you know, the teamsters themselves aro to blame to a certain extent
for over-loading wagofls with 50,000 to
00,000 lbs. cutting up the roads fearfully. Then one wagon Will makd one
rut going through a nitid hole, and thb
n.'.xt that passes will make a new rut.
If; however, us you renlarked, the work
of repairing ,vas done early in tho yedr
and culverts wero put in where needed,
the roads in this section Would be by iu
means bad for a new collntry,"
From the Boundary Creek Times.
Quite a number of prospects are now
working on I'uss creek and all are showing up well. Two parties left tnis week
to develop claims in that camp, Al.
Clifford is sinking on the Sidehill Situ*.
Work was resumed this week on the
Canadian, in Sky I irk camp. A tuuriel is
being driven from the lime contact on
the south to tap the lodge.
Messrs. McCuaig and Larson are making arrangements for the establishing of a
now hotel at Rook creek. The materlii
is also on tho ground foi a hotel building
which is shortly to bo erected on Mr.
McDonnell's ranch on Kholt creek.
A Mr. Burnyeat, representing American capital, who visited Boundary crock
this week, w is very favorably impressed
with the great showings of mineral
which he Haw on some of the principal
claims of the camp; admitting Hint while
ho had been in most of the mining camps
of the province, the resour ces of Boundary alone are not only not exaggerate!
but understated on the "outside,"
Crowded out lasl week.
II. L, King and J. I. Daniel, who
have been doing development work on
the Mountain Chief; situated on La
Flour mountain, have uneartho.i a line

Mi'EBt'K. King and Horn in who luiwi
been spending a couple of weeks in this
vicinity in looking oVer the cmntry,
left for home Yesterday. They expect
to return in about a month.
Mr. O. F. Btaurt has opened a real estate antl abstract olliee in the building
formerly owned by Ed Thompson.
A largo number of prospectors aro
arriving daily and at unco leave for tho
hills for the purpose of doing assessment work on their properties located
last season.
The reports received here from the
various canine are very encouraging
and every indication points to the reservation becoming one of tho best mining
sections in Washington.
Notwithstanding the backwardness
of the season about forty Ideations have
been recorded since the lirst of March,
besides a large number of transfers.
The linnl arrangements for the organization of tho Id Ige of Knights of Pythias is nearly perfected; anil it Is expected

This proporty includes the Hat, fertile

a second bench containing a row of lots
which will prove to bo some of the

Tho addition contains about iOO lot-?,
