But It Wasn't Passed by the
Grand Forks Board
of Trade.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Grand Porks board of trade was held
Wednesday night, when several matters of interest were discussed.
A resolution was introduced, which
seemed to receive the hearty endorsement of nearly all present, favoring
the entry of the V., V. & E. railway
into the city and to the smelter, and
that Mayor Holland be urged to withdraw the injunction secured by the
Kettle Valley Lines against the said
V., V. & E. to prevent the latter
crossing the line of the former. Tbis
was opposed by a few members, who
are evidently interested in the Kettle
Valley Lines, as they wished tbe resolution laid on the table, aud moved an
amendment The amendment was
lost, and' a technical objection
was then made by its supporters
to the vote taken, on the ground tbat
the dues of some members had not
been.paid in advance according to the
by-laws. As this was the first time
that this question bad been raised,
and as the by-laws tire not even yet in
tbe bands of tbe members, tbe move
caught several of the members napping, and it was decided to call a
special meeting on Wednesday, the
the 14th inst, for tbe discussion of railway matters. This meeting promises
to be one of unusual interest, and The
Sun predicts that every member will
be present, with his dues paid up to
date and his name duly recorded on
the register.
LUMBER WILLBEWIGHER
The San is reliably informed that at!
a recent meeting of the sawmill owners of the Boundary district an agreement was entered into to advance the
price of lumber to $14 per thousand
'delivered.

diere and Mcintosh.

j Forks the $3000 school debentures
upon receiving an assurance Irom him
that they are to be sold or hypothecated at not less than 85 cents.

second time: Rates and Taxes Bylaw, Tree Planting By law, Electric
Railway Repeal By-law.

FRIDAY, MAY 9, 1902
A board of trade, in order to be ot
public benefit, should work for the
best interests of the community in
which it is located first, last and all
the time. But the Grand For«s board
of I rude appears to take the opposite'
view. Instead of being a benefit to
the city, it is a heavy millstone
around its neck, retarding its growth
and expansion. We do not intend to
say tbat all the members ot the hoard
are responsible lor this state of affairs.
The majority of them, we believe, arei
earnestly striving loadvance the city's
prosperity, but tliey aie domineered
bya few conctited and fossilized moss-
backs, who ruled the city when it was
a village,and are now trying to ruin it
by their narrow-minded policy. They
are simply using the board as„a cloak
under which to futher their own private interests, aud the sooner they are
ousted the better it will be for all who
have the city's future welfare at
heart. Tbe reBolution regarding the
injunction restaining the V., V. & E.
from crossing the Hot Air Iracks, introduced at the last meeting of the
board, should have been passed, and
would have been passed had it not
for these wolves in sheep's clothing.
As it was, it was only defeated by the
raising of a technical objection, an
objection which had never been
hrought up before. The supporters
of the resolution promise us tbat they
will pass it at a special meeting Wednesday night, but the opponents will
probably trump up some new scheme
to defeat it. If the Grand Forks
board of trade is not willing to work
for the public good, let it be dissolved.
On the ruins of the old Organization
a new and robust one could be formed ;
one composed of representative business men, men who do not receive
favors from the Great Canadian Pinch
and who are not shareholders iu a toy
railway.
The Rossland Miner is anxious lo
know when the Hot Air intends to
drive its last spike. If the Kettle
rises a little higher, aud washes out a
few more "temporary" bridges, we
may soon hear "rumors" again about
driving the firoi spike.
The Grand Forks city council acted
wisely last Wednesday night when it
rescinded a motion passed at a previous
meeting to enforce the telephone
license by-law. Tbe small rebate allowed the company is a trifling
amount, and the privileges and courtesies which the city receives in return
for this rebate are so numerous, that,

TOWN TOPICS
A C. P. R. pile driver was taken
up to Nelson Wednesday morning,
and a gang of workmen immediately
commenced repairing the Hot Air
bridge damaged hy high water last
Tuesday. Four spans, of a total
length ol 80 feet, were washed awav.
The structure destroyed, it is claimed,
was merely a temporary affair, the
Howe truss bridge not having been
put in yet.
H. L. Newett has established a
stage line betweeu Urand Forks and
Nelson, Wash., making the initial
trip Wednesday morning The stage
leaves the Vals hotel at 8 a.m. daily,
and returning, leaves Nelson at 10.30
a.m., giving travelers about two
hours in Nelson. The line will be a
great convenience to persons desiring
to make short visits between the two
towns, and will 110 doubt receive a
liberal patronage.
Mrs. Carey, of Nelson, B, C, has
rented the Clarendon restaurant on
Bridge street, and will maintain the
high reputation that popular house
has gained for serving first class meals.
Mrs. Carey has had long expeiience in
the hotel and restaurant business, and
the Clarendon should prosper under
her management.
Rev. J. R. Rolertson, B.A., has
quite recovered from his' recent illness, and will conduct services as usual
iu Knox Presbyterian church next
Sunday. Morning subject, "The,
Bread of Life ;" evening, ''Christian

ence of the Methodist   church.   Mrs. '
Betts wiil preside at a meeting of  the
Women's Missionary society while ou

The Grand Forks hose team is at
present doing some earnest practice

doubt give a good account of themselves in tho Greenwood competition

Rev. J. F.'Belts returned yesterday
from Nelson, B. C, where he hud'been
id attendance at the annual general
meeting of the conference of the
Kootenay.
Rev. Mr. Calder will conduct services in Presbyterian hall, Columbia,

Work on the V., V. & E. is being
pushed forward in a satisfactory manner. About a mile of steel was laid
yesterday, aud the tracklaying gang
is coming this way rapidly.
The grading camp has been moved
to Columbia, and the work of grading
the depot spur is now well underway.
Three houses have been moved from
the right of way iu the city, and about
a half dozen more remain to be moved.

Situation,   Environments   and    General
Re^oi irees.
The City of Columbia is 'situated
near the junction of the North Forks
of the Kettle river with the main Kettle river, and is distant about 300
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the oity for
beauty Is not excelled iu Ameriea. A
verdure -clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed b v a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forlHIng a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Tictora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city connections with two transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has lar=re interests in the city,
having sslscted the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year
arouud,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout tiie Kettle River valley
there is an extent »f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided Into small frnlt and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Iluilding material is Plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brlok lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained wh9n required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this country, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have been discovered
throngh the mountains "adjacent to
the oity, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the city by pumping from a beautiful spring of '- excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plaut
of the kind . in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautibln environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a oity of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oity in the interior.
