DEWET'S ESCAPE.
London, Feb. 14.—The detailed accounts which have reached Were of
Lord Kitchener's combined movements to drive out the Boers from the
enclosure of blockhouse lines, show
that the conflict was very picturesque
and that it was the most exciting incident of the whole campaign. Although apparently surrounded by an
impenetrable ring of fire and steel, the
Boers dauntless bravery and dashing
charges resulted in tbe majority's escape from tbe meshes of Lord Kitchener's close drawn net.
The British commander's scheme
was the most extensive ever carried
out during the present war. It consisted of a continuous line, more than
fifty miles in length. Lord Kitchener,
wbo personally directed the operation
was in close touch, day and night,
with every detail of tbe movements.
Tbe Boers, though hard pressed,
shrank-from attempting to cross tbe
railroad, where armored trains, equipped with powerful search lights, patrolled tbe line throughout tbe night.
Tbe train lights were supplemented
by stationary searchlights. Th-> battle at Heidelbron, Orange River Colony, raged from 9 o'clock on Friday
night to two o'clock on Saturday
morning. Throughout the five hours
a fearful range of fire from rifles, cannon and pom pome swept along tbe
British lines.
boat anil returned lor the fifth man,
Joe Ryan, but he, too, bad succumbed
and sunk. None of tbe bodies of the
three men have been found.
WANT MORE TARIFF ON SUGAR.
Teronto, Feb. 14.—Tbe piomoters
of tbe sugar industry in Ontario will
ask the Dominion government to temporarily raise the tariff on sugar.
D. D. MANN ON THE COAST.
Vancouver, Feb 13.—D. D. Mann
arrived here today from Montreal and
passed through to Victoria, where he
will interview tbe government regard •
ing railway matters. In an interview
be made no definite statement regarding bis company's plans, except that
they took the position that the country south of tbe Canadian Pacific
would be developed as a matter of
business by tbe Canadian Pacific and
Great Northern, and his firms attention would be concentrated particularly on enterprises further north in
British Columbia.
Five men, who left Granite Bay,
North Texada, on Saturday night at
nine o'clock for Rock bay, seven j
miles away; were struck by a squall j
and capsized. All got on the boat's
bottom and stayed till Sunday morning. Then Joe Coutre and Alex Smith
dropped off and never came up again.
By this time they had drifted close
ashere, when Casey and George Cal-
ahan swam ashore. They got another

GREENWOOD HEMS.
Greenwood, Feb. 14.— In the county
court Wednesday in the case of Wick-
wire against Wartman, Judge Forin
gave judgment for plaintiff, awarding
him $25 damages and costs. Plaintiff
holds two crown granted mineral
claims on land pre-empted by defendant, one located prior to tbe pre-emption of tbe land and the other after.
In regard to the latter the judge held
the plaintiff, having publisned tbe
usual notice of intention to apply for
a certificate of improvements and obtained his crown grant, and the defendant not advetirsiug, the latter lost
all rights to land. An injunction was
granted restraining tbe defendant from
cnttiug or removing any more timber
or cordwood from tbe mineral claims.

Boundary Creek Times, delivered an
interesting address on tbe subject of
Westminster Abbey at tbe last weekly
meeting of the Greenwood Literary
society,
School Inspector D. Wilson, G. O.
Madigan, C. Burt, E. Ferguson and
G. C. Hodge, of Nelson, were here
yesterday. The last named is accompanying H. W. Kent, provincial manager ol the telephone company, on his

neat little sum of $100 was fiuaily
counted up from the receipts. Miss
Summers won the prize for earning

experience story in rhyme, Mrs. A.

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 1902
The business office of The Evening
Sun is located at present in Columbia,
whtre all cor.espendence with it, and
exchanges should be addressed.
The Nelson Tribune builds an elaborate editorial on the action of the
Grand Forks board of trade 111 passing
a resolution bearing on the much
mooted question of the coal and coke
supply. Ofceurseit is well known
that the Tribune is a faithful rooter
for the great Canadian Pinch railway,
and seizes upon every bppbrtun.ty to
ai'1 the do« in the manger lo throw dust
in the eyes of those inclined to favor
either the railway promoters or supporters. It is true there are some
shippers in this city who 'enjoy
special favors Irom the C.P.R., for
which they reciprocate by jeaUusly
guarding the reputation of their benefactor in this respect, but they know,
as do all well posted citizens, there is
no pwsihle danger of any difficulty of
a shortage in the supply of coal aud
coUe, except in the inability of the
railway to deliver. The C. P. R.
never has properly equipped its
Boundaiy branch to handle the immense volume of business which it enjoys. It now requires from two to six
weeks to get shipments from the coast,
Spokane or Nelson. The Tribune
quotes an instance when the Greenwood smelter was short of coke as
prool that the Canadian supply is
limited. The fact in the case was,
the C. P. R. could not deliver it for
want of rolling stock. All of the Tribune's pro-C.P.R. screeds are based 011
like flimsy premises. The developments
in the North Fork and Siniilkameeu
coal fields will soon drive the organs
of the road to hunting other arguments
to projudice the people against any
proposed opposition to the great Canadian Pinch railway.
The fact that the local board of trade<
is largely made up of shippers at the
mercy ol the C. P. R , disqualifies the
board for independent action in regard
to the fight now on locally between
the Canadian Pacfic and Great Northern corporation, and v.e believe the
matter  should   be   taken   out of its
In its tottering weakness, the Gazette is fortunate in securing the favor
ot a bank manager, but it may prove
inconvenient and expensive to the
banker.
GRAND FOKKS BOARD UF TRADE
The Grand Forks board of trade
held an adjourned meeting last night
to receive reports irom various special
committees.
J. B. Henderson, from the railway
committe reported,virtually taking the
same ground as that claimed by The
Sun. It was adopted, but as it reflected
on the C. P. R., its language is to be
modified   by   further   consideration.
A resolution was adopted asking
all the Boundary boards to join Grand
Forks in a request to the Minister of
Justice for the immediate appointment of a Supreme justice, which was
telegraphed to local boards.
The board endorsed the petition for
a bridge over the Kettle river at the
foot of Sixth street, lor which an appropriation of $4,5oo will be asked.';
The sum $500 will also be asked for to
make a road 011 the south side from
First street bridge to the G. P. R.
track.
Mr. J. B. Henderson, chairman of
the school board, read a report on
school matters, and made a request
that the board of trade place in its estimates of government aid needed for
public works the sum of $20,000 to
cover the cost of the new school
property. If allowed, it would only
be giving this city like support accorded to Nelson and Rossland.
J. D. Sears asked that the sum of
$600 be placed in the estimates for '
clearing the first jam in   North Ftrk,
A committee was   appointed to as-
semble all  these requests   in one re- J
report aud   forward to  our M. L. A.,
Holi. Smith Curtis.
Collin Campbell tendered his resig- !
nation as secretary of the hoard, which j
was accepted, and a vote ol thanks
tendered Mr. Campbell for effcient
services rendered the board in the i
past. T. A. Kennion was elected sec- j
retary ot the board.
Frank Sears and Fred Clark having
reported they would be unable to at-1
tend the Associated boards of trade :
meeting at Kasio on the 26th instand, |
Mr. Doberer, chairman of the delega-1
tion, was authorized to appoint a
colleague.
At the Methodist church tomorrow
morning the pastor Rev. J. F. Betts
will take for his morning subject,
"Voices Irom the Cross," In the'
evening the pastor will give the first!
of a series of talks on "Evidences of
Christianity.''

Situation,   Environments   and    General
Resoi lrees.
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 in America. A
verdure-clad and flower-bespangled
rolling prairie, traversed by a river of
bright, sparkling water, fringed with
forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturosqnesness and grandeur
The Columbia A Western railway,
whiah 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 Gail-
way company, has located its depot,
freight sheds and yards along the east
line of the corporation, thus giving
the city commotions with two transcontinental lines.
The. Canadian Pacific railway company has large Interests in the city,
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 slimmer is rather hot and dry, but
the rest of the year is enjoyable.
Throughout thejlettle River volley
there Is an extent *f fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plumi, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small fruits grow
abundantly. The valley surrounding
Columbia, d'videl into small fruit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building nnaterlal is plentiful in the
district. Lumber oan be procured at
fair prloes, and brick lime and stone
of goal quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests are of the first
importance to this oountry, and will
do much to build up Columbia. Large
mineral lodes have bees discovered
throngh the mountains adjacent to
the eity, and what were mere prospects a short tiim 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
eity of 50,000 inhabitants.
The Granby smelter and converter
—the most modern and perfect plant
of the kind in America—employing
hundreds of men, is contiguous to the
oity,
Owing to the fine climnte, the Central situation, the beautible environments, 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.
