THE EVENING SUN
VOL. 1
GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B. C.   SATURDAY, MARCH 8, 1902.
NO. 105

A WARM TIME.
Victoria, B. 0., March 7.—The
home held • night sitting last night,
presumably at the instance of the government, to prevent the opposition
members attending Mr. Bodwell'a
meeting in the Victoria theatre. Mr
McBride has a motion before the
house asking the government to table
forthwith all telegrams and other data
bearing on the alleged contract with
McKenzie and Mann.
Earlier in the day a motion made
by Mr. McBride asking the govern
ment to issue a writ forthwith for the
vacancy in North Victoria district,
was defeated by a straight party vote
of 19 to 16.
At last night's session the opposition
continued their demands for telegrams
bearing on the Canadian Northern
contract.
Mr. Tatlow asked if Mr. Green-
shields, who is pushing the scheme,
is the same man who was described
by Colonel Prior as making hundreds
of thousands of dollars out of one of
the most disgraceful railway deals in
the history of Canada, meaning the
Drummond county deal.
Mr. Tatlow followed this up with a
charge against the premier that he
had a side agreement with McKenzie
and Mann whereby he sold them his
Comoz and Cape Scott charter. This
the premier failed to deny. Mr.
Dansmuir finally moved that the
house adjourn until Tuesday, and this
elecited a storm of protest from the
opposition, who charged the government with inability to u.eet the contention of the opposition and with ad
journing to avoid tbe exposure of the
government
Tbe government carried its point,
however, and the house adjourned,
all the opposition members going to
the theatre, where Mr. Bodwell was
holding one of the biggest meetings
in the history of the city. Here the
government's course waa used with
great effect by the rpeakers, and the
general feeling now is that Colonel
Prior's defeat is certain, and that the
government's fate is involved in that
of its candidate.
DIED I.N SOUTH AFRICA.
Ottawa, March 7.—The gevernor-
ge, eral yesterdxy received advice from
the colonial office that Frnncis M. Anderson, uf the South African constabulary, had died at Heidelberg. The

ESTIMA i ES SUBMITTED.
Ottawa, March 7.—Tbe supplementary   e.«tin,ates  for  the  current year
were submitted to tbe  house  yesterday.   They total $1,358,683.   The ex-|
penses couuected   with the  Duke  of'
Cornwall's tour of the country amount
to $358,000. This is in addition to the
$130,000 voted for tbe purpose last
session. There is a special vote of
$15,000 for the relief of Indians in
British Columbia.
WHO KNOWS YOUNG CRAFTS?
Nelson, B. C, March 7.-J. F.
Crafts and wife of Boston, Mass, who
have been in tbe city for tbe last two
days, stopping at the Hume, left yesterday for Eholt. Their mission in the
city was to search for a son of whom
they have not beard anything for the
past six months. The last letter received from him was dated at Eholt,
where he said he was working in a
mine, since then they have sot been
able to get auy answer from him or
any information, and tbey have taken
the trip across tbe continent to search
for him, fearng that be has met with
some serious accident.
MARCONI COMING WEST.
Winnipeg, March 7.—It is likely
that Marconi, the inventor of wireless
telegraphy, will be ia Winn peg before long. In a private letter received

in Ottawa, who entertained Marconi

that tbe inventor remarked that ou his
return to Canada he intended to visit
tbe Canadian west and tbe Pacific
coast.
WESTERN IMMIGRATION.

immigrants into the Canadian west
for the season of 1902 has commenced.

' There are gigantic political forces

Conduct ot both Mr. Martin aud Mr.
Dunsmuir in the legislature, and the
further fact that Mr. Dunsmuir was
compelled to adjourn the sesiori to
avoid answering a most damaging per
sonal charge, the voters must no/V believe that the government is not endeavoring to serve the people, but is
looking more to the welfare of corporations with interests akin to those of its
leader. The election ol Mr. Bod well
would no doubt result in knocking out

Theflty of Columbia Is 'situated

miles east of Vancouver.

Vancouver, Victora 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 PaolSe railway com-
any has large interests in the city,
aving selected the site on account of
the superior natural advantages as a
railway eentre.
The climate, taken all the year
arouud/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 «f 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 frnit and
vegetable farms, will sustain a large
population.
Building material is plentiful in the
district. Lumber can be prooured at
fair prices, and briok 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 disoovered
throngh the mountains adjaoent to
the oity, 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 of exeep
tlonal purity, capable of supplying a
eity of 50,000 inhabitants.
