GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B. C. TUESDAY, MARCH 11, 1902.
NO. 107
PRIOR
WINS
The C, P. R, Candidate Is
Elected by a Majority
of 54.
Victoria, March io.—The election
was one of the most excited and
hotly contested ever held in this city.
It was a contest with supports of honest and lair administration of government on one side and the anti-progress Canadian Pacific gang on the
other, and the result means the continued domination of that corporation and the Island over the u.ainland.

VOICE OF THE PEOPLE
government do ? The position in the
province was so critical that the dominion government passed an act
making themselves responsible for the
interest on [I think] the amount of
$15,000,000 for a great nnmber of
years.
Now, sir, it seems to me that tbe
time has arrived when the Boundary
people must act, as they did in Manitoba. There is no clause in tbe C. P.
R. charter, or in the Republic &
Grand Forks charier, such as the C.P.
R. bad in the Manitoba fight. There
is "damned cussedness," "unlimited
gall," "legal technicalities." Let
every voter io. the Boundary country
state with no uncertain sound that he
has only two planks iu his political
platform— fair redistribution on the
the basis of representation by population and the right of railway competition. Until we get these rights let us
all stick together. Manitoba got her
railroad rights, and British Columbia
can. The electorate must act. Both
the Dominiou and the British Columbia governments are in session. Now,
oue word as to what the Dominion has
given railways as bonuses. From the
last Dominion railway report I find
that the country has given the railroads $228,539,890.43 and 39,725,130
acres of land. This does cot take in
the immense provincial lanci grants.
If I had time I would like to take up
the bonus question in reference to the
Dunsniuir-Canadian Northern steal,
but hope to get more space at another
time, i hope t* see the Bounday electorate show by their words and actions
that they will no longer stand being
swindled out of "representation by
population" or "free railioad competition." W. H. Disbrow.
SABBATH OBSERVANCE.
To the Editor of The Evening Sun.
That the wa^e laboring men of some
parts ot the interior of this province
are being robbed of every semblance
of rest and opportunity for personal
improvement by the large money
combines, is one of tbe most painful
conditions forced upon the pablic in
modem times. It is a matter for sincere congratulation when men, unjustly and unreasonably ordered to
give up the day of rest—their Uod
given heritage, of pric 1 ss value to
tbe weary toiler—letuse to obey the
the oti er side was the C. P R. forces order, when the only end to be served
under direct command of Superinten- by obedience would be the convn-
dent White, now assistant to the gen- ience or cupidity of the already over-
eral manager, in hU private ear, with much fattened monopoly. A deter-
a magistrate sworn in with special uii««d stand on the part of the work-
power. ; ingmen against all Sabbath labor,
Then the provincial government I which is not clearly a demand of ne-
had to call out all the provincial po- \ ceasity, would be a long step in the
lice force and then the troops from , direction of breaking the galling fet-
Fort Ortborne were called out. What J ters which now hold in degrading
was the upshot? Though there was servitude mauv of the very noblest
• claa.se in the C. P. R charter stat-' spirits in the country, and would
ing that no competing railway could j otiag sunshine into many a life and
be run in a southeasterly direction ' many a home now bound down by in-
froai the maia line of the 0. P. R. for ' cetsant and exacting toil.
THE RAILWAY SITUATION
To the Editor of The Evening Sun.
I beg a small space in today's issue
of The Sun to lay my views before the
public on tbe railway situation. I
lived in Manitoba during the stiring
times of railroad agitation against the
C. P. R. monopoly. What happened ?
1st, The municipal councils, boards
of trade and other public bodies, petitioned the government to allow tbe
Northern Pacific to enter tbe province,
but all to no purpose; though they
had a provincial charter they were
stopped crossing the (J, P. R. track
on the outskirts of Winnipeg. What
was the outcome ? The people rose
in their might and demanded an entrance for the Northern Pacific; the
situation became so hot that there was
talk of open rebellion. The Northern
Pacific was on one side of the disputed crossing with an armed gang.   On

BOERS' MAGAZINE.
London, March 10.—Lord Kitchener, in a dispatch from Pretoria dated
yesterday, reports the discovery of a
Boer magazine in a cave northeastward of Rietz, Orange river colony,
containing 310,000 rounds of rifle ammunition, hundreds of shells and
fuses, 200 rounds of powder, a Maxim
gun, helios, field telegraphs and
quantities of stores. Thirty-five Boers have been captured in the same

Copenhagen, March 9.—The treaty
providing for the sale of the Danish
West Indies to the United States, was
discussed in the Folkething today.
The premier and foreign minister, Dr.
Deunlzer, made a long speech, which
made an excellent impression, only
Johann Ottemzen and a few others
spoke against the sale ot the islands.
He demanded a plebiscite. It will
come up again on Monday next. Tbe
session today was not an open session.
There will be two readings in open

TUESDAY, MARCH II, 1902
Ihe Grand Forks Townsite company has ordered its advertisement
out of the Gazoot, and Mr. Holland
has suddenly become a bad man
again.
A justice of the peace in the slate of
Washington may be said to be following a precarious occupation. H. H.
Treff, police justice ot Faruiington,
was assaulted and beaten Tuesday
morning by Charles Walters, bartender of a local saloon. The trouble
arose, it is said, over an effort of Mr.
Treff to enforce the closing of saloons
on Sunday. He went before tbe city
with a complaint that the law in regard to the closing ol saloons was not
being strictly enforced, and succeeded
in having an order issued (or them to
close up tight on Sunday. This caused
much bitter feeling and the assault
was the direct result. Walters went
before Justice Klein and pleaded
guilty and was fined $5. Then Treff
went before Justice Brewer and swore
out a warrant for Walter's arrest, notwithstanding the a.tion before the
other justice. Walters was placed
under $100 bond to appear lor trial
Wednesday.
the city look more closely into the
tire and sanitary conditions in Chinatown.
The management of the late rink
told their financial troubles to the
council and succeeded in reaching the
tender spot in the hearts of city dads
to the extent of a cancellation of the
city's claim of $38.50 for electric light
service, which seemed but lair, as tbe
promoters ot the rink were certainly
engaged in a worthy endeavor, and
had not tbe elements been against
Iheui they woul:l have come out gainers instead ot losers.
Four bids from lumber dealers were
opened aud read as follows: Smith,
rough, $12 per thousand, surfaced,
$14; J. W. Morrison, 812 and $14,
sized; Sequiumie & Power, $11 and
$12.50; Lucksmith, $11.50 and $13.50.
As the matter of delivery and other
things not being fully understood a
committee of the board was appointed
to make the best deal it could.
GRAND FORKS CITY COUNCIL.
The Grand Forks city council met
in regular weekly session last night,
with all members present except Mayor Holland, who is absent from the
city. Alderman Harvey occupied the
chair. The first matter taken up was
a request from F. W. Reid, of the city
waerwoiks department asking1 that
his salary be allowed lo remain at
8125 per month. Granted for time
being. Considerable time of the
board was taken up in listening to ad-
dress of committeemen from the re-
cent citizens' meeting and the board!
of trade relative to resolutions passed
by those two bodies with regard to
the Chinese. An effort is being made
by tbe ranchers to eliminate them
from the position of competitors in
the vegetable business, aud by citizens to have the Chinese move out of
the business portion of the city and to
one side by themselves; and to  have

The effects of the late J. H. Blome
were to be appraised today. Deceased
having 110 kin in this country, made a
will in favor of W. H. Burns at whose
home Mr. Blome died and by whom
he was cared for in his last illness. In
the death of Mr. Blome Grand Forks
is left without a photographer, and
here is a good opening for some one,
but he must be an artist to fill the
sho.-s 01 the deceased.
London, March 10.—It is announced ihat General Lord Methuen and
four guns had been captured by the
Boei's commanded by General Dela-
rey.
The Columbia police court was enlivened today by the trial of a case
entitled <>eo. Harris vs. Chris Rasmussen of the C. P. R. hotel. The complaint alleged assault. The difficulty
appears to have originated over the
price of a meal, Saturday evening last.
The plaintiff and defendant gave their
versions of the affair to Justices McGregor and Spraggett, and an old
gentleman named Vaughn told what
he saw and what lie didn't see. After
consideration the court sentenced the
defendant to pay a fine ot $20 and
costs.
In order to avoid all possibilities of
bloodshed among the large crop of
spring poets that has suddenly sprung
up in our midst, The Sun has decided
to discontinue the original "pome"
department. Hereafter 25 cents per
line will be charged for printing
"pomes" devoid of literary merit, but
under no circumstances will effusions
of a personal nature be accepted for
publication.

TO THE VICTIM
Thou fickle, fainthearted fellow!
Art thou afraid to pass
The home of thine old sweetheart,
When courting a new lass ?
Thou shouldst not change so often,
But try to constant be.
Ba! maybe that's not the reason-
It's the girls won't stay with thee.
Thou hast tried them all in turn
And they all have tired of thee,
For a muid likes a manly man,
And that thou will never be.
Get to work! Qnit thy folly, kid !
Learn to care not who looks thy way,
Then Lou, with her spyglass keen
Wouldn't make all your hair turn gray.

Situation,    Environments    and    General
Resoi irces.
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, spnrhliug waier, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forffling a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur
The Colombia 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 * 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 Pacifle railway company has large interests In the city,
having selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railwav 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 the Kettle River valley
there is an extent af fertile agricultural land, part of whioh is now being cultivated.!
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, divided into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be procured at
fair prices, ami 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 sinoe are now large
paying mines.
Water is supplied the oity by pumping from a beautiful spring of excep
tlonal 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 beautible environments, the bright prospeots 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 city in the interior.
