GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B.C. SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1902.
NO. 140
N FAVOR OF V. ¥ J E.
Grand Forks Citizens Hold
a Meeting and Pass
Resolutions.
Resolution passed at the citizens'
meeting, held in Grand Forks, Thursday night, April 17:
Whereas, Both Canadian and American wagon roads and railroads cross
and recross the international boundary
line at may point* between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans,
And whereas, Such intercommunication is to the best interests of both
Canada and the United States, and
recessary for both peoples,
And whereas. The very existence of
the Boundary country is involved in
such facilities being provided as will
make it possble to mine and smelt low
grade ores,
And whereas, Freight rates now
charged are almost prohibitive, rendering it impossible to work many such
mines, to the great detriment of th's
section; and the province at large,
And whereas, This particular section has been in tbe past most unjustly dealt with by reason of being deliberately and wilfully debarred trout
securing a competi'ive railroad, even
wh n such road or roads were and are
willing and anxious to build in here
without bonus or assistance of any
kind j
And whereas, The V., V. & E. railway company has commenced and
carried on its road iu good laith and
at a large expenditure of money, notwithstanding many obstructions from
rival and interested parties,
And whereas, We are credibly informed that said V., V. & E. railway
c mipany has bought 1000 acres of
ranch pr >per y at a large figure, to
secure a r g it ol way of a4 acres, and
in this way disposed of the injunction
obtained by a former owner, a shareholder in a rival railway.
And whereas, The swiil V., V. & E-
company or its assigns are now- the
li.nu fi e owners of said property, and
.-hould not be imerfcrred whir. »nv
Mich interlerence being contrary to
Ihe fi st 'irinciples of British f<(ir p ay.
And Wlktea , VW are creiliblv informed thai, as purchasing shi • property and pfol'eeiJiiig to work llier-011,
th y Iihv.i been again   restrained   from
doing so by order of the court at the
instance ot the Honorable the Attorney General, claiming to represent the
people of British Columbia ;
Therefore be it Resolved, That the
people of Grand Forks, in public
meeting assembled, protest in the
strongest and most emphatic manner
against such action and interference;
and that we believe it is not in tbe interest of the province and is calculated to do us great injury, and we call
upon the press and the people
throughout the country to say with us
tbat this course of action is wrong,
unjust, done for partisan purposes,
and shall not stand ;
And be it Further Resolved. That
copies ol this resolution be forwarded
to our local representative, and request him te bring it before the legislature to enquire into as to the action
of the attomey-geneml, and also to
tbe press at large.
The following resolution, offered by
Chares Comings, seconded by '. L.
Manly, was also passed:
Resolved, That the citizens have
come to the conclusion, after observing Ihe course of recent events in railway matters and the persistence of the
obstruction hieing made to the entry
of the V., V. & E iuto the district,
that it is a public misfortune that tbe
mayor's private interests should, ever
since the election to the mayoralty,
have led him to take a stand to which
this city as a whole is opposed, and
that further continuance of Mr. Holland in the mayor's chair cau no
longer be considered good for the city,
and that therefore the secretary be instructed to write Mr. Holland and request his resignation in the name of
the citizens.

SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1902
With regard to independence and
full-orbed manhood there may come a
day when Grand Forks can boast of
the presence of more of that force
than at the present time. As it is,
few men, for some cause or other,
have the courage ol their convictions
on local issues. The causes for this
deplorable situation are not difficult of
discernment. In the first place, it is
a demonstrated, fact that in tbe past
not only this province, but the Dominion ol Canada, in a greater or less degree, has been overawed and intimidated by that great creature of these
governments—the Canadion Pacific
Railway company, which has become
more powerful than its creators. The
Boundary is today as absolutelv at its
mercy as a mouse in the powerful
claws of a, big: tomcat. This great
enemy of the country has its guards
and emissaries everywhere, and no
businessman who is a"shipper dare
open his mouth or lilt his peii in protest. Coming down to this specific
community, this is not all tbe feign of
terror the people must endure; Three-
fourths ot the property-owners here
ate again intimidated by a local tyranny that is even more dreadful than
the slimy foe that stretches its length
from ocean to ocean. These people
have put their little all into the beginnings of what they hope some day to
call their home. They have borrowed
money irom the townsite company
and erected dwellings and agreed, to
refund to the loan company on the
installment plan. They realize that
some day tbey may be short of means
to meet an installment and compelled
to ask for time. If by their votes or
public expressions they offend against
the loan king, this favor of extension
may   not be granted them and their
express themselvs freely may not   be
held through fear of displeasing a fel-' ~

The delegations elected at the
Greenwood citizens' meeting of Wednesday night, and those elected at a
similar meeting held in Grand Forks

Davis &Co's Store Robbed
In the small hours of this morning
some bold robber entered the store of
Jeff Davis & Co. by breaking a large
paue of glass in the rear of the building, which let the robber into the store
through the office. Not much damage
done however, as the thief was looking only for money, and found but a
small amount of change in the counter tills. Nothing else was missed
from the store.

Kellv and David Low were anchored
in a boat just above the smelter dam,
endeavoring to dislodge driftwood,
the rope which held them broke and

twenty-five feet into the wild waters
below. Being good swimmers the
men managed to save themselves from
being drowned, bnt their escape is
Considered almost miraculous. The
boat was badly crushed, and Low had
one band severely injured.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resources.
The City of Columbia is tsituated
■ear 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 water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forfBlng a charming eombina- -
tion of pieturesquesness and grandeur.,
The Columbia A Western railway,
which was constructed by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, hat its
station, freight warehouse and yards
in the center of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Yictora 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 Paoifie railway company has large interests in the oity,
having 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, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout fie Kittle Kiver valley
there.ii an extent of 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 f rnit and
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 ban always be ob-.
tained 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
through the mountains adjacent to
the city, and what were mere prospects a short time since are now large
paying mines. .^
Water is supplied ihe oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
. tional purity, capable of. supplying a
oity 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;. ..,"•■■     •'■
Owinrto the- fine climate, the cen-
j, traLsitimtion, the beautlble environ-
?.',> meiits, 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 finally allied
and wedded to her sister sister, will be
the best and largest oityin.the interior.

The worst use of alang is not when
it it fresd and piquant, but when it becomes stale and passes into the regular vocabulary of the people, to the exclusion oi good English. Such expressions as "I cab See his finish,"
when thev are first uttered, are often
used with considerable humorous effect. But the language is iaipover-
idbed and vulgarized by the habitual
use of "turn down" for reject, 'icall
down" for a mild rebuke, "roast" for
a severe one, etc, >, After r. these, expressions have been used for a certain
time'they ought to taken out of circulation, along with the ^ragged banknotes. ■ "'  '
