Five Oandidates For Aldermen  Also
Placed in the Field to Make the
Eaoe in Oompany With
Mr. Mauly.
For Mayor John A. Manly
For Aldermen :
L. A. Manly W. G. Hepworth
J. H. Featherston J. K. Johnson
W. K. C. Manly.
As announced in the last issue of tho
MiNii r, a mass meeting was hold in the
school house last Monday ovoning by
the supporters of John A. Manly, to formally place that gentleman before the
citizotiB of Grand Forks as a candidate
for mayor at the coming municipal election, Long beforo the time arrived for
calling the meeting every seat in tho
Lone., was uuoupiod unci atauuuig room
was at a premium.
The report had gone forth during the
afternoon that the opposition wore organizing with a view of capturing the
meeting. This report, it is to bo regret-
tod proved truo. Unfortunately for
them, however, they either lacked
strength or tho moro conservative and
level-headed followers rofused to aid
the instigators of the scheme.
Mr. Geo, E Filley was chosen chairman and after thanking those present
forjeonferriug upon him the honor of
presiding over the first pol itical moeting
in Grand Forks, stated that as he understood it the meeting had been called
by the citizens who were supporters of
John A. Manly to publicly request him
to run for mayor at the coming city
G. Earl McCartbr was elected secretary and Mr. J. H. Featherston, chairman of the citizen's committee who
waited on Mr. Manly and requested his
consent to accept tho nomination for
mayor, was called upon for his report,
lie stated that the committee had called
upon Mr. Manly, that he had acquiesed
to their request and this meeting had
been called for the purpose of ratifying
their action. On motion tho roport of
Mr. Featherston was adopted and it
was moved and socouded that Mr. John
A. Manly be the unanimous choicsof the
meeting for mayor, which motion was
Mr. Manly was called for and coming
forward thanked those present for tho
honor thoy had bestowed upon him, as
ho considered it would be a groat honor
to anyone to bo elected mayor of Grand
Forks, and stated that ho would use all
honorable moans to bo elocted but in uo
ovont would ho ask anyone to sign a
paper guaranteeing him their support
or uso any coercion to socuro a voto. lie
statod thut it waB usually the case for a
person  uooepting a  nomination  at  the
hands of tho people for any office to define the platform on which ho would
make tho race. In this respect ho had
very little to say beyond tho fact that
he did not believe it would bo a judicial
policy to rush in and plungo the city in
debt for street grading, building bridges,
etc., thereby increasing the taxes, but
would advocate a conservative course for
the present, only making sueh improvements as were absolutely neco-isary, such
as sanitary regulations and tiro protection. Ab far as building bridgos was
concerned he was strictly opposed to tho
city erecting any until such time as its
revenue would justify it without going
into debt. If private corporations or
individuals wanted to build bridges
they had a right to do so. If elected he
proposed to uso his best endeavors to
keep tho exponsos of tho city down to
the receipts of tho present yoar. Again
thanking thorn ho closod his remarks.
The chairman aBkod the further pleasure of the meoting. On motion of Mr.
Featherston they proceeded to nominate
five aldermen to run on the Manly
ticket. Aftor several aye and nay votes
the following gentlemen woro chosen:
L. A. Manly, Dr. Ilepworth, J. K.
Johnson, J. II, Featherston and W. K.
C. Manly.
The meeting thou adjournod.
Jumped the Tra.k,
The MarcUB stage experienced another accident last Thursday eueuing,
between Ren RaeBoaure's stage station
and Hall'B ferry. Coining down a stoop
hill tho brake broko, letting tho sleigh
run up onto tho hedB of tho horses,
which became unmanagablo and started
to run dashing the stage aguiiiet a largo
hollow tree and throwing tho occupants
out with a torriblo force. There were
seven passougers, among whom were
Frank Griffin, Frod Wollaston of this
place. All were more or loss injured;
Mr. Wollaston suffering a badly sprained
ankle, another passenger, whose name
we failed to loam, got his face cut up
and tho driven having hiB wrist wrenched. _^_____
Nickel and Cobalt.
Messrs. Otis and Chaplin, who have
charge ot the development worR being
done on the Anchor Mining company's
proporty, situated in tho reservation on
San Pierre creek, report tho opening of
a large vieu of oro which assays eighty -
five per cent nickol and cobalt and car-
res silver and gold. Ab this is the first
nickel discovered in this section they
consider they have struck a bonanza.
Held on April 3rd.
Tho Rossland municipal oloction will
be held on April 3rd. Tho exact date of
the Grand Forks election has not been
made public aB yot, but it is moro than
likely that ours will come oil about tho
same time.

White ilouso, will give it grand opening
on Tuesday morning next, at 10
o'clock. A sumptous frco lunch will be

But the Spider Landed Too Often and
After Putting up a Plucky Fight
the Kid Went Down in the
Eighteenth Bound.
When applying for Crown Grants request that the notice of application be
published in tho Qrand Forks Miner
-the best advertising medium in thu
Kettle Rivor and Iioundury districts.
That Grand Forks is up to date
no one will deny. No delegation wen t
from here to the "big" fight at Carson,
Nevada, but on the afternoon of St. Patrick's day while sevoral thousand of
the world's most prominent "sports"
wero witnessing "Lanky Bob" Fitzsim-
mons acquire the honor of being cal led
tbe champion slugger of the world bv
whipping "Gentleman" Jim Corbott in
fourteen torriblo bloody rounds, about
fifty "dead game sports" from Grand
Forks, 0 arson and Nelson were enjoy-
iug a duplicuto on a small scale, in tho
shape of one of gamiest and most hotly
conlestod feather-pillow "mills" ever
put up by two amatueis, Tho principals in the affair woro tho Coeur d'Alene
Kid and tho Missouri Spider, two Grand
Forks lads about 18 years of age.
What the contest lacked in science
was more than mado up by tho plucky
fight tho boys put up. The preliminaries of tho affray were arranged by the
contestants themselves. The scrap was
for the purpose of settling a difference
of opinion as to which was tho bost man
of the two and also for tho gate receipts.
When it was given out that tho boys
had decided to settle their differences by
a glove contest evorybody treated the
affair as a "josh," but as the timo drew
near it was evident that thoy were in
earnest and moant to keep thoir word.
The"iciH" wae pulled off on the reservation just across tho line from Carson
and proved to bo as gamey a contest as
any one ever witnessed, taking eighteen
rounds to decide the victor.
The raatcn was governod by Marquis
of Quoensbury rules, in a fourteon-foot
ring, three-minute rounds, two of light
aud ono of rest. Eight-ounce gloves
wero used, Capt. Hargravo acted as
referee and Mr. Clark as time-keeper
while Harry McKay socondod the Kid
and Paul Fishor the Spider. The Kid
tipped tne scales at 118 pounds and the
Spider at 12&%
While tho Kid was tho heavier of the
two the Spider had the advantage of
being tho tallest and longer in tho arms
by nearly threo inches. The boy from
Coeur d'Alono was tho favorite in betting circles and although ho lost tho
tight he fully demonstrated by tho punishment ho took thut he was a stayer
to tho backbone
Uoiow wo givo a dotailod account of
tho mutch by rounds.
Time was] culled ut 9ifi4,
First Round—Tlio boys ounio to tlio scrntcli
with a eonlident smile ou their luce and without any foolishness conimoucod slugging each
other right and left, lhe Spider alining his blow!
ut tho Kids lace, while the latter kept lauding
on tbe Spider's body. Tho lighting was
quick and rapid to the finish, nnd when time
was called both were puffing and blowing like
a locomotive climbing u steep grade.
Second Round*—Both lighters advanced to the
center nnd the Ocur d'Alene boy at once forced
the light for tbe lirst half of tho round with ft
view of licking the Spidor In a canter. Tho
Spider kept reaching for the Kids face aud Anally landed with his left duke on his nose, which
started the blood to flow. This blow was Bucb
a surprise to the Kid that he was dazed tor ft
second and before he could realize what hod
happened, the Spider got in a right hand upcut
en the left jaw of the Kid scoring a clean knock
down. For a moment It was uncertain whether
or not the Kit would bo able to eome to time,
but after laying in a dazed conditiou for &
couple of seconds he slowly raised to his feet
and made a rush for the Spider. As pretty close
lighting followed us was ever seen in any ring,
and the way the boys slugged each other with
the pillows would have done credit to high
class professionals. The sound of the gong was
welcomed by both of the lads, who showed
signs of fatigue.
Third Round—The Kid caino to the center
with blood freely flowing from his nose and
mouth, while his Lips were badly swollen from
the punishment lie had received about the face
aud head. On the other baud tho Spider showed
no indications of belngell'eeted by the numerous jahs he received on the body. They sparred
for wind, but thu Kid could not be contented
with this slow mode of lighting, and again
forced tlie light lauding hlow after blow on tho
Spider's body, with an occasional swipe along
side the head with his right. The Spider beiug
on thu defense was kept busy keeping out o£
the Kids reach, but every now and thou would
jah the Kid geutiy about tlie nose aud eyes aud
whon lho gong sounded hoth wero willing at
Fourth Round—Both fought shy of each other.
The Kid landed a terillle swing right baud blow
on tho Spiders beck. Spider found the Kid'r:
uiik with hisleft aud followed with a beautiful
upper cut which wus stopped hy the Kids right
jaw. Either of these hlows would havo dono
thu business, had they had sufficient power behind the pillow. Both Bparrod lor wind. Tbe
Kid reached for tlie Spider's jaw and found it.
The Spider returned ou the Kid's nose. Another
pretty exhibiton of close lighting followed aud
was kept up until the end of the round, which
set the oro wd wild with excitement aud eveu
money was offered by the backers of both.
Fifth Round—Both came up looking fresh, although theKld's face showed plainly the effects
of tho severe punishment ho had been subjected to and the blood was streaming from his nose
and mouth. Tho Kid wont aftor the Spider
with body hlows while the Spider kep-
dancing around the Kid, and when an opening
was ofl'ered, which was pretty frequent, would
land ou tlieKid's noso with his loftand follow it
with au uppercut with ills right, although very
weak it was apparent that they would prove effective in tho end.
Sixth Round—Both sparred for wind. Tho
Kid landed heavily on tne Spider's body. Tho
Spider returned witli a jab in Kid's lace with,
cither his right or left. After sparring for wind
a fow seconds the Kid undertook to rush tho
Spider, who proved to be to quick lor him and
by several beautiful ducks kept from being
put over the rope in his own corner. All tho
timo tho Spider wus getting away he kept up at
lusil lade of blows on the Kids head.
Seventh Round—Although severely punished
and his right eye nearly dark, tho Kid rushed
his man furiously, chasing him all over the
ring aud as the Spidor undertook to duck away,
landed a right hand swinging blow oh tho side
of his neck, which set him going lor a second,
and had tho Kid ombraced tho opportunity
could have put him out. Recovering from the
oltects of tho blow, tho Spider took tho aggressive end and crowded the light. In tho ralxup
that followed tho Spider iound tho Kid's sore
nose with his left and followed It with a right
handed upper-cut Iu thu sumo place, causing
the crimson to freely flow, Thlsseemed to act.
tie the Kid, and both fought like doraons until
the gong sounded, and from the way thoy both
took their punishment it was anybody's fight.
Eighth Round—This ruund was a repetition of
the seventh, both lauding on etch others face
nock, and body but with such weakness, however no sorlous damage was dono.
Ninth Round—The Kid, although very groggy,
started In to crowd lhe tight, hut lulled to land

loarc that tho government fins awakened
to the necessity ot taking steps to protect the rights ot the owners of crown
granted mineral claims, by the introduction ot a bill at the present session,
giving them the option of purchasing
tho surface rights at a reasonable figure.
The passage of this bill would forever
sottle the title to townsites in mining
districts and obliterate the chances of
their being questioned by the action of
wholly irresponsible persons, as in the
case of Greenwood.
As yet no authentic information h.is
been received hore concerning tho appointment of u returning ofiicer for tho
election of a mayor and five aldermen
for the city of Grand Forks. Nevertheless there seems to bo no doubt but
that a municipal government will bo
elected within thirty days from tho date
of the Lieutenant-Governor's affixing
his signature to the bill which was on
tho Oth hist. Alroady the situation has
beon prelty thoroughly canvassed by
both the opposing parties and atpresent
a bitter factional light seems imminent.
It is to be hoped, however, that before
the timo for the election conies all concerned will roalizo the folly of tho courso
now being pursued and by intelligent
and harmonious action this factional
strife, jealousies and heart-burnings of
a contested election will be avoided.
The sentiment seems to be pretty strong
among the property holders and a majority of those who havo a right to vote
that what money the municipality may
acquire during the present year should
be expended economically and entirely
upon needed improvements, and not in
the interest of any particular section of
the town. The health of the city is of
tho greatest importance and adequate
Bewerage and wator systems' and tiro
protection must be had ia any event.
As tho policy of both sides seems to bo
identical we fail to see why there should
be any strife over tho organization of
the first municipal government and
there is no reason why satisfactory arrangements cannot bo porfectod between
those interested and every member of
the now administration be elected by
Last week ttfty-sefon companies, representing ii capital of over 851,000 gave
notice of incorporation in the liritish
Columbia Gazette. The indications aro
that if the Companies' Act which was
introduced in the Legislative Assembly
some time ago as a threat to those desiring to over capitalize companies, is
not passed beforo long, there will be

The jumping of the townsite of Greenwood City by ono J. Fisher, on Monday
of last week, is a deplorablo ail'air and
should bo looked upon with discredit by
everyone who jb identhied with the
future wellfaro and prosperity of our
enterprising neighbor over tho range.
Ths grounds on which this "jumper"
places his claim are absurd and will not
stand in any court of law, and aro based
upon a decision lately made by Judge
Forin, recently appointed to tho county
court bench in Kootenay, which is on*
paralcllod in the history of jurisprudence; i. o., that although a mineral
claim is crown granted, the owner has
no titlo to tho surface, While thoro is
no ono, who will take the trouble to
inform themselves but will be satisfied
that in the end Mr. Wood, tho original
owner of the Greenwood (lity townsite,
will bo able to fully establish his rights
in the premises, the action of Mr. Fisher,
gives persons with malicious intent an
opportunity to place n cloud on the title
of tlu»property in dispute, thereby doing BU irreparable damage to Messrs,
Wood and associates, for which they
havo no redress,
However, it   is very encouraging to

the Spiiler would poke him In tho f ■ with his
left and uppor-oul him with IHb right with regularity, and tho gong rounded Just in timo to
keep the Kid from going down.
Tenth Round -Thin round wus oharuetorlzed
for fust nud turloua lighting by bothol tho boys,
win, woro loudly cheorod by the spectators.
The Kid rushed tho deol.whllo tho Spidor would
jul, Hi,. Kid ln the face. The sound of lhe gong
was welcome tousle to both of thorn.
Eleventh Round—Tha Kids (nee commenced
to resemble a iifteen-oent "ohuok Bteuk" niter
it had iioen undergoing a battering process, and
he fully realized that unless he emild put his
mail to sleep by "rushing him" und getting in
a chance "knook out blow" the "cheese waa
off." From lhe instant lime wus called Urn Kid
crowded the tight,und until tho gong sounded it
wan give ami tuke •■', -npid succession, with
honors uliouT equally n., iileil.
Twelth Round—The Camr d'Alene boy seemed determedto put his man "out" and rushed
at him like u tiger pummelling him about tlie
body vigorously. This sort oi amusement was
not appreciated by the Spider who used Mb
legs to good advantage and ducked out of several close phices, but kept dusting the flies from
the Kid's nose and face.lirst with ono Imud and
then tbe other, until the gong put a stop to the
punishment thai the Kid wus subjected to.
Thirteenth Round—While nearly blind in both
eyes tlie Kid continued to crowd tin: fight witli
the hope of getting iu a "knock out" plow on
the heart, and the. referee had to caution him
to not get below the belt, The Spider used the
same Indies that he had pursued from tlie lirst,
and whenever an opportunity afforded would
huul his dukes on the Kid's face As- the gong
rung the Spider wus punishing tlie Kid unmercifully about the fuee.
Fourteenth Round—Both came to the scratch
witli renewed vigor, The Kid made another
rush, driving the Spider Into his corner aud
against the tope and could havo easily put him
over if he had followed up his work, but having
to stop to spit tlie blood I rum bis mouth, the
Spider landed with his left on theKhi's nose nnd
follwed it with liis right, which started the
Kid "going." The Spider taking iu the sitnu-
tion took the offensive nnd rushed tlie light,
Which would have ended in this round, but lor
the sound of tbe gong.
Fifteenth Round—Both of tlie hoys eom-
nicncd to realized that they had "bit off more
thnn they could chow," and BhoWed signs of
wanting to let go ns quick as possible. The Kid
stinted in to rush, but showed weakness, and
was not able to make much of an effect on the
Spider, who would duck nnd get away witli
ease. Just us the gong sounded the Spider lauded one or his rigid handed upper-cuts on the
Kids jaw, which stinted him u tottering, and it
would have been un easy matter to have linked

broken into.
Mrs. MeMynn testified corroborating in detail
the statements made by preceeding witnesses.
Mr. MeMynn theu took the stand in his own
behalf and after relating tbe story of the sickneBS
of himself and family from tbe time of its commencement until the night of the shooting ho
went on to state that he was awakened out of
a deep sleep and fancied he heard people talking in tbe ofiice. He was wet with prospiration
and very nervous. Tho noise continuing ho
began thinking something was wrong and became anxious about the safe which contained
about $1,000 of government money; he also
feared for the saftey of the-prisioners in the
lock-up. Crawling out of bed he slipped On his
coat and trousers and taking a revolver went to
the dining room. Glancing at the clock he
noticed that it was 8:40 a. m. Ho then passed
into the hall and listened at the office door and
faucied he heard men talking softly iu the olliee.
GOingto the kitchen lie saw one person walking backward and forward near the olllcc steps.
Miss McKenzie then came to the kitchen and
told him men were hammering lu tlie oflice,
advising him to go outside and shoot to Brighten
them away. Rushing outside to the north east

and in oompany with Miss Melven/.k- examined
the ofiice and Bafe finding them all right.
Mr. MeMynn, continuing his testimony, expressed great regret at the unfortunate a Hair,
lie also also contended thnl in many respects
Hood was to blame for the shooting. First—
Incoming to the office at the time he did as
the location would be equally as good if made
within 16 days as if made within 15 minutes
after the location. Secondly—by alarming all
the family by the noise. Which U Is clearly
shown in llh' evidence, he made; also having
his horse at Ihe office door, when there is a
hitching post a few yards away, thereby giving
further grounds of BUpioion that the intent waa
to rob the office, and as well his failure to
knocK at tho door or otherwise let him know
who it was and what was wanted.
He was completely missled.by all the facts of
tho case and can only explain his actions by
the condition he was in and tho peculiar circumstances of the entire affair.
