FRIDAY, JAN. 3,  1902
Care should be taken in making
nominations for city officers in Grand
Forks, not to throw down the bars
again to the wide-open boodling element which once held sway here. The
better class is in control now, and it
should be retained rather than take
the chances of going back into the
hands of those who would enrich
tht; selves at all hazzards, wholly regardless of decency and morality.
Those narrow and greedy fellows who
would prevent development of the
couutry unless all the profits of such
development go into their coffers,
should be turned down with a slam
that will flatten them out for all time.
Manv of our exchanges in their
retrospective and perspective New
Year articles speak of the Dominion
as being on the threshhold of wonderful development. That there will be
progress goes without the saying, but
how much more rapid that progress
might be wete it not for the fact that
the whole country is. bottled up for
the especial benefit pf a single railway corporatiii.
The Panama Canal company is ia
financial distress.
There w as another meeting of the
(J rand Forks Liberal association last
night to look into the most momentous question of the customs vacancy
at the C.P.R. station in Columbia, as
Mr. J. B. Henderson was turned down
by "Our Billy" because he supported
Chris Foley. Von cannot nurse the
sixth teat of the public udder, if you
ever voted against any nominee of the
bosses.
Tracy Holland's affidavit on which
was issued ail injunction to prevent
the Great Northern from assisting in
the development of the Boundary and
Similkameen and Okanagan regions,
for tbe benefit of Grand Forks, is
longer than his little angleworm railroad.
A young man named Feu Batty,
whom the writer formerly knew in
The Dalles, Oregon, is registered at
the Allan hotel in Rossland. The local paper reported his m me as Fen
Baths,  which goes to show there is
not much in a name after all,   when
the newspapers get hold of it.
Ye editor acknowledges the receipt
of an invitation to be present at the
First Annual Banquet of Greenwood
Typographical Union No 358, to be
held at the Dominion House, Phoenix, Jan. 5th, 1902. We would very
much line to be there.
In varions sections of Canada and
the United Stales, there are complaints of a shortage on many railroads of a sufficient number of freight
cars and engines U take care of the
freight traffic business.
The selfishness displaj ed by those
who are opposed to the building of
railways in the country by Americans
with American money, brings no credit to the country or community. Take
f. 1 instance the opposition to the V.V
&E by the Republic and Grand Forks
people, four-fifths of whose line runs
on American soil. Such narrowness
is unworthy the mind with sufficient
breadth to be public spirited.Southera
British Columbia is twenty years behind any of the Pacific coast states,
just because of this clannish disposition, in *ther words, penny wisdom
and pound foolishness.
E. D. Hal!, of the News, will return
to thie city tomorrow accompanied by
his bride.
The soft weather of the past day or
two has sweated away much of the
snow and made teaming difficult.
Pekio, Dec. 31.—The Chinese court
will reach Pao Ting Fu on January
3d. The railroad thence to Pekin
during the court's transit will be
guarded by Gen. Ma's troops. All
the nobles and high officials of Pekin
have been o.dtred to assemble on the
plaza between the temples ef Heaven
and Agriculture, and prostrate themselves while the Emperor and Dowager Empress pass. Officials and Man-
«hu bannertnen will line the entire
route from the station to the palace
gate,

mean and worthless they ought to be
killed, and are, and some men are so
mean that, while they onght to be
imprisoned if not killed, they are
elected to office to run public affairs—
sent to Victoria or Ottawa to enact
laws. Many of the men who handle
