THE EVENING SUN
VOL. 1
GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B.C. MONDAY, MARCH 31, 1902.
NO. 123
Cooper Creek, Near Kaslo,
the Latest Miners'
Mecca.
Kaslo, B. C, March 30.—There is a
placer gold excitement at Cooper
creek, 20 miles from Kaslo. The
creek is staked for miles. A company
bas been fanned to build a flume and
dam. Lumber, supplies and men are
rushing in. Gold from tbe river runs
25 cents of coarse gold. Gold was
known to exist lor years, but was
never before found in such large
quahtities.
LE ROI'S NEW RECORD.
Rossland, March 29—The month
now almost at a else will see an entirely new record established by the
Le Roi mine in respect to the output
of ore. Tbe record as to tons shipped
within any one month is that established in May of last year, when the
mine produced 22,793 dry tons. The
figures for March, which still has
three davs to run, will surpass tbis
record by a substantial margain.
During tbe present month up to and
inclining tbe 26th inst, the Le Roi
mine shipped 20,986 tons dry weight.
On Thursday and Friday thirty-five
36-ton cars were sent to the smelter,
and the production, unless tbe unexpected happens for today, tomorrow
and Monday, the last day of the
month, will be twenty cars daily,
making a total additional wet tonnage
of 3420, from which 806 tons will be
subtracted to arrive at tbe net dry
tonnage. This leaves 2620 dry tons to
the aggregate already piled up, or a
total of 23,606 dry tons foi the entire
month. The two records, placed side
by side, look as follows: May, 1901,
22,793 dry tons; March, 1902, 23,607
dry tons.
MINES CONSOLIDATED.
Salt Lake, Utah, March 30— The
Daily West and Quincy mining companies, two of the largest properties in

by bis staff and preceded by a detachment of the Forty-eighth Highlanders and their pipers. The.box of

The programme included tbe Forty-
eighth Highlanders' exhibition drill,

JEFFRIES-FITZSIMMONS FIGHT.
j Los Angeles, March 2Q.~Tbe Cen-
! tury Athlectic club is still in the contest for the Jeffries-Fitzsinimons fight,
and will make a new offer, which will
raise the bid of the Charleston club.
The prospects for bringing the ffght
here were considered very slim Saturday, but tbe offer from South Carolina bas spurred the local promoters
on to new efforts, The forfeit money
posted in San Francisco has been left
there as a guarantee of good faith, and
the purse money is still on deposit at
tbe Citizens' bank of this city.
Thomas McCarthy, president of the
club, said: "The bid from Charleston
does not bother us a bit. We do not
believe they can make it good, and we
have good reason to believe tbst the
offer is not bona fide."
COLLISION KILLS THREE MEN.
Jarvis, Ont., March 29. -Two Wabash freight trains running over tbe
Grand Trunk tracks collided near

MONDAY, MARCH 31, 1902
The Gazette's cock and bull story
in Saturday's issue of that sheet about
the purchase of Granby property by
the Hill syndicate, when seen in the
light of figures, loolts a trifle ridiculous. The Gazette states the purchase
price to be $22,000,000. The Granby
shares are quoted at from $2.75 to
$3 per share, the par value of which
is $10. If Mr. Hill has paid the sum
stated by our local contemporary, he
is out eleven dollars a share. Mr.
Hill has nevflr exhibited a disposition
to pay more than the current price for
anything he desired to possess, and
while recognizing the necessity of
scare-head stories to demonstrate
modern journalistic enterprise, there
should be some reason and excuse for
their floatation, which the one in question has not.
Senator Marcus A. Hanna has writ
ten a letter to C. W. Clotty of Tomah,
Wis., saying he is in no sense a candidate for the presidency in 1904, and
requesting, his .friends to discourage
any movement looking to that end.
Marcus is wise—$ wise. Id a magazine article some time since he stated
that he realized eariy in life that to
carry out great commercial and financial schemes; which were his ambition, propitious legislation had
to b.- established, therefore he took
to studying law and politics He knew
he could accomplish more for his own
selfish ends by becoming a national
law maker and political leader than
by remaining at home and following
the ordinary methods of business pursuits, accordingly he lorced his way to
the leadership ol the republican party,
broke into the United States senate,
established government by injunction,
forced the gold tnonoply on the nation anrl finally got his $8,000,000 a
year ship subsidy, and now the $$ iu
store for him look brighter than his
chances for the presidency. He knows,
too, there are many men iu his party
who would be only too glad to kill
him politically.   Marcus is.wise.
Greenwood's police commissioners
do not allow gambling gatues to be

1 Mrs. Jennie Carter was up before
: Justices Spragget and McGregor this
morning, charged with having cou-
. cealed on her premises parties suffering with .coutageous • disease—smallpox. Complaint was made by Constable Dinsmore, acting for the Crown.
Defendant pleaded ignorajnee of the
law. The Court was lenient considering all the palliating circumstances,
and fined defendant $1 aud cost. How-,
ever, the incident should prove a warning to all. The law relative thereto
I reads as follows: '"Whenever any
: householder knows that any person
, within his family or household has
the smallpox, diphtheria, scarlet fever,
cholera or typhoid feve"r, he shall
within twenty-four hours give' notice
thereof to the medical health oflicerof
the municipality or district in which
he resides, if there be one, and such
notice shall be given either at the office
of the medical health officer or by a
communication addressed to bim aDd
duly mailed within the time above
specified, aud in case there is no medical health officer, then to the local
board. * * * Any person who
violates any otber provision of tbis
Act shall, 1111 less it is otherwise spec-
ally provided, be liable lor evtrysuch
offence to a fine not exceeding $100,
with or without costs, or to imprisonment, with or without hard labor, for
a term not exceeding six months, or
both fine and imprisonment, in the
discretion of the convicting court."

Situation,    Environments   and    General
Resources.
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 800
miles east of Vancouver.
The natural situation of the oity for
beauty In 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, forming a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,'
which was constructed by the Canadian Pacific Railway companyr has its
station, freight warehouse and. yards
in the center  of Columbia,  and the
Vancouver, Tiotora A Eastern Railway company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the {corporation, thus giving
the oity connections with two transcontinental lines.;
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests in the oity,
having selected, the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway oentre,
The climate, taken all the year
around/is the best in Canadn—part of
the summer is father hot and dry, but
the rest of the ye^r is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley
there is an extent «t 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 ipto small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district.   Lumber can be procured at
fuir prices, anil brick lime and stone ,
of good  quality oan 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
through 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 pf exoep
tional purity, capable of supplying a
city of 50,000 inhabitants. >
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in Amerioa—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
oity,        •';,'• ■
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the beautible envlron-
. ments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will
be an educational oentre, 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. |f c".  j g

April 3. and will lie in state in the
yestiuule till 2 iu tbe afternoon, when
it will be removed to tbe Anglican

coffin will be taken by special train to
Buluwayo, stopping for a short time
at Kimberley. Only a few intimate

The coffin, during the funeral procession at Capetown, will be carried
ou the gun carriage ot Long Cecil,
the tamous gun used at the siege of
Kimberley.
London, March 29.—The Daily
Mail says it is in a position to assert
that Cecil Rhodes left the bulk of his
fortune, outside of some personal and
family bequests, to the promotion of
his vast imperial plan of education.
The project embraces every land
where the Union Jack flies.
