THE EVExNING SUN
VOL. 1
GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B. C.   WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 1902. NO. 102
LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS.
Victoria, March 4.—Tbe address in
reply to the speech from the throne,
was moved yesterday afternoon by Mr.
Clifford aDd seconded by Mr. Hall.
Mr. McBride replied in a lengthy
speech, in which he explained his
withdrawal from the government, alleging it was purely because he could
not remain in a government which
was organized on anti-Martin lines
but afterward had taken in Mr. Martin's lieutenant. He opposed trap fishing, commented on the absence of
reference to the Oriental question in
the speech, and concluded by offering
an amendment calling for an immediate and fair redistribution bill, said
bill to be given precedence over all
other legislation.
Mr. Tatlow attacked the premier for
bad faith in failing to reconstruct the
government and for being supported
in the house by members who were
bis employes in business.
During the afternoon the premier
said tbe railway contract for the
Canada-Northern had not yet been
signed for the province, and the attorney-general promised to bring the
draft of tbe contract down.
The premier, being upbraided by
Mr'Tatlow for signing the memorial
condemning Mclnnes, at whose hands
he received office, said he was sorry
for it, but was misled by the advice of
others.
POOLEV NOW SPEAKER.
Victoria,   March    4.—Hod.   C.   E.
Pooley was yesterday elected   speaker
of the legislature, succeeding the late
Hon. J. P. Booth.
APPLYING TO CANADA.
Montreal, March 4.—Application
has been made at Ottawa for a Dominion charter for a company called the
Northern Securities, with a nominal
capital of $1,000,000. All of the incorporators are members of the legal
firm ot McGibbon, Casgrain, Ryan &
Mitchell. The company, however, is
tbe same as tbe American concern organized by James J. Hill. The incorporation of the company in Canada is
regarded by the leading lawyers of
Montreal as placing the merger beyond the reach of a U. S. court The
company will be enabled to fulfill in
every respect the purposes for which
it waf irganizeil, and if so di sired it
will be enabled to offer its securities
for sale on the exchanges in the same
manner and with the same freedom
now enjoyed by a score of commercial
institutions coining under Canadian
charters.
AMERICAN MULE O. K.
London, March 4.—A parliamentary
remount department in South Africa.
It refers to the American mule as being the "best received from any
source, magnificent workers and kept
n condition under the most adverse
circumstances." The American horses,
the report says varied greatly, but the
majority were excellent.
A DISCORDANT NOTE-
London, March 4 —The first public
discordant note in the preparations
for the King's coronation has been
sounded. Tbe Borough Council of
Battersea, tbe most socialistic district
in London, which is represented in
parliament by John Burns, considered recently a recommendation from
its finance committee to vote a sum
of money for the coronation celebrations. Deputations of labor and soda list organizations attended to oppose any appropriation for this purpose. Some of the speeches were
most violent, but they drew applause
from the public galleries. The mayor
frequently called the speakers to order
for disrespect to the King, who, one
speaker said should be crowned with
crape, owing to the war. The council,
by a vote of 31  to 18, re-referred   the
scheme to the committee.
ELECTION DATE SET.
Toronto, March 4.—It is announced
on good authority that  the date   has
been   set   for   the  Ontario provincial
election, namel), Tuesday, Juue 3.

when a number of the other members
took part in a general scramble over
the possession of the chair. There
were two acts of aggression on the
part of Mr. Martin before I interfered
with him; first, in his seizing and pulling away Mr. MoBride's chair; and
secondly, in his thrusting himself
with great force against my chair and
myself. In addition to my undoubted right to resist force with force, it
has been quite apparent that the government was utterly helpless as it had
not dared to decide the matter at the
proper time; and it was therefore a
case of every man being a law unto
himself and protecting his rights as
best he could. There was no attempt
made by any member to hit or injure
any other member. So far as I know
there was no real anger shown by any
one, on my part there was none; but
I was fully determined not to allow
bull-dozing to prevail, as it would
likely lead to other future attempts
of it from the same source.

And tne Trouble It Caused While the
Chaplain Prayed.
A STATEMENT.
Victoria, B. C, Feb. 28,1902.
Ed. Evening Sun :—The trouble
atomt the   seat  of the leader of the
Opposition arose in   this way.   The
Government in the first instance refused to decide who should have the
particular seat, which by custom and
long usage has always been accorded
to the leader of the Opposition. Sometime before the session on Monday began, Mr. McBride's desk was placed
in the position   usually occupied   by
the leader of the Opposition    When
be came in  he found it so and took
the seat.   Mr. Martin came along and
objected, but in place of referring the
matter to the house to decide, remained standing a l'ttle di-tiince  back of
the seat.    When  prayers began   and
the  members stood   up   Mr. Martin
came forward, seized Mr.  McBride's
1 chair,   pulled it back   and   stood   in
] front   of it.   Immediately upon  the
conclusion of prayers, and not before,
I pushed   my   seat forward    for Mr.
McBride to occupy, an act of courtesy
which I bad a right to do, thereupon
Mr. Martin threw himself against my
chair and against   me, endeavouring
to push   the chair and   myself  back,

Hume was re-elected mayor of Seattle yesterday, thus defeating the
J. L. Wilson combine.
The first stretch of public telephone
wire in this country was strung from
Boston to Somerville, a distance of 3
miles, in 1877.
Our Boundary and Kootenav exchanges are still reporting local hockey matches. To us of this immediate
valley such matters seem discordant,
in view, of bare grounds and bal.uy
weather.
A prominent official of the government told a Sun reporter this morning that the present provincial government would in all probability be
dissolved about the 12th instant, but
that previous to dissolution, a redis-
t ibution bill and the estimates would
be passed.
A party who claims to have been
oiM of the number states that orders
for job printing amounting to $560.
were sent over to Rossland from
Grand Forks yesterday. In connection herewith it may not be out of
I lace to revert to a bit of local history.
Last summer it was stated aud generally believed that the Gazette newspaper property had been offered far
?ale to parties representing the C.P.R.
The deal *aa about to be consummated
wb n the News appeared in the field
and upset calculations. H. W. C.
Jackson of Rossland came over here
with the intention of consumating the
deal, 1 ut found a strong influence behind ihe new paper, which caused
him to retire. Now a number of
citizens who may always he found in
the front row at all public meetings,
and jealously guarding C. P. It. interests in this community, are supposed to be now figuring on a consolida
tion ot the two papers named and
their absorption in the interest of that
corporation. To bring about the purchase of these papers at the lowest
possible figures, a systematic war is
being made against their business by
influence over their patrons, in order
to decrease income and put the own-
The commendable tree-pi an ting
movement grows. Wnile at first
thought this may be set aside as a
trivial affair, the more it is considered
the more important it becomes. Columbia has a large area of compara
tively level land and furnishes au
ideal residential site, healthful aud
sightly. The beaatifying of our homes
and streets with flowering plants and
shade trees will prove a great attraction, and cause many to build here a
home while doing business in the
lower town,and our citizens are acting
wisely in encouraging and promoting
the effort. The committee appointed
at the recent public meeting, consisting of Charles Hay, I. A. Dinsmore,
E. Spraggett, W. H. P. Clement and
A.D.Morrison, held an informal meeting last night in tbe office of Hay.Mc-
Callum & Wright, discussed the tree-
planting question, and then adjourned
to the city offices where they consulted with members of the Columbia
I council regarding matter. Together
j they will now confer with Mr. Burrell
of the Riverside nursery.
A football team was organized in
Grand Forks last ni^hl at a meeting
held in the city hall. W. B. Bower
was elected president of the new organization; Vice-President, Fred. W.
Grant; Captain, P. H. Donaldson;
Sec.-Treas,, W. D. Belts. A general
committee was appointed as follows:
R. A. McMordie, Ab. McQueen, Geo.
Ewing, A. J. Cochrane and George
Brown. An exhibition game will be
given on Good Friday, tbe 28th   inst.
In order to impress members of tbe
Board of Trade with the importance
of the Chinese question locally, as
many as possible of our citizens should
attend the meeting to be held tonight
in the Board of Trade rooms, at 8
o'clock.
The Granby smelter has contracted
to treat 2,000 tons of ore from the
Jewel mine, Long Lake camp. The
first shipment was expected to arrive
today. The mine is owned by an
English company.
A social will be given by the ladies

RUMORED RESIGNATION.
Ottawa, March 4.-- The rumor is
strongly circulated that Hon. A. G.
Blair, who recently left for New York
will return only to resign from the
ministry. The reason assigned is that
his health will demand cessation of
work and change ol air and scene.
Hon. James Sutherland is mentioned as Mr. Blair's successor at tbe bead
of the railways and canal department,
and Hon. Mr. Templeman as minister
of marine. It Is quoted as being significant that Hon. W. Templeman's
delayed admission to the cabinet took
place on the day Mr. Blair left for
New York to consult specialists.

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 city for
beauty Is not excelled in Ameriea. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie.'traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffiing 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, Victora 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 Pacifie railway com-
Eany has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year
around,'is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is rather hot and dry, bnt
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent of fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, oher-
ries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small frnitand
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, and brick lime and stone
of good quality can always be obtained when 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 city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and convei-'er
—the most modern and perfect nl-nit
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
city,
Owing to the fine olimate, the central situation, the beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational centre, a city of
homes, as well as a wholesale distributing point; and when filially allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will !»>
