Grand Forks and Columbia, B. C.   Friday, October 31, 1902.
The Transformers for the
Branch Power line Have
.   Been Procured,
Present indications point to an early
resumption of operation of all the
idle machinery at the Granby smelter. Yesterday morning Chief Electrician Lane started out on a quiet
hunt for transformers, the only
thing lacking to have the power
line ready to transmit electricity
to the smelter within a week, and
this evening word was received from
Phoenix that his quest had been
The transformers for use at the
company's mines at Phoenix are
already on the ground, and it has
been decided to bring them to this
city and install them on the branch
line to the smelter. The ones ordered for this place will be sent to
Phoenix on their arrival. .Aasteam
is still the motive power at the
mines, this change will not curtail
the ore output.
This arrangement will enable the
smelter to start operations in full
blast inside of two weeks. The
future is bright.
/Road Improvements—Wendesday
morning work was commenced clearing and grading the road frorp the
city to the Columbia street bridge.
At present Foreman Disbrowe has
a force of 1,5 men, which will be increased to 20 as soon as more tools
can be procured. The grade will be
raised to an average height of three
feet, necessitating the moving of
about 4000 yards of dirt. It is estimated that it will take two weeks
to complete the work. The men are
paid $3.00 per day, nine hours constituting a day.

Knox Presbyterian church congregation will hold a musical anniversary social on Monday night at 8
o'clock, to which the friends of the
congregation are cordially invited.

"This increases the value of Grand
Forks and Columbia property 25
per cent,"
Thus commented a prominent
business man on reading the special
dispatch to The Sun last Tuesday,
convoying the intelligence that the
railway committee of the privy council at Ottawa had granted the application of the V., V. & E. railway to
cross the Hot Air road and the C.
P. R., and build a four mile spur
into the Granby smelter, as well as
the extension of the main line to
Phoenix, Greenwood and Midway.
And the man was right.
Immediately on receipt of the
news the fire bells were rung, and
bonfires sprang up as if by magic
in all parts of Grand Forks and Columbia, and blazed until a late
hour. The jollification was heartily
entered into by every one, and
showed beyond a doubt the sentiment of the people of the community.
M. E. Churoh Services—At the
Methodist church next Sunday, at
10 a. m., the quarterly love feast
will be observed. Rev. J. B. Betts,

will be, "The Lamp," being the
third of a series of sermons on the
elements of citizenship. At thd
close of the morning services the
Sacrament of the Lord's Supper
will be observed.
Anniversary Services — Knox
Presbyterian church will hold anniversary services on Sabbath, Nov. 2,
in commemoration of its organization three years ago. Rev. , Dr.
Wright, of Nelson, B. G, wiil preach
both morning and evening. Appropriate music will be rendered by the
choir. Morning anthem, "He Will
Forgive''; evening anthem, ' 'Come
Unto Me." Mrs. D. D. Munro will
also sing "Just for Today" at the
evening service.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31,  1902.
We have not the space in this is-1
sue to comment at length on the
good news receivedj from Ottawa
last Tuesday. But our views in the
are well known. The result of the
meeting of the railway committee
shows what can be accomplished by
a united effort. Had The Sun not
stirred the citizens to action about a
month ago the V:, V. & E. might
have been kept out of the city in
I.\ discussing the Hon. A. G
Blair's visit to British Columbia, the
Toronto Globe says:
The board of trade of Victoria, in
their  memorial to the Hon. A. G.
Blair, minister   of  railways,   laid
much stress on thc necessity of new
railways   for   the   development  of
British Columbia.    In reference  to
the Yukon they said: "Owing to the
fact  that the only railway route to
the  Yukon  is from a point in the
possession of the United States, the
British Columbia cities have   been
greatly hampered in their competition   for jjthe   trade of that part of
Canada.    Moreover, the White Pass
& Yukon route being in part outside
the jurisdiction of Canada, it is not
possible for the government to  exercise  fully   that   control of rates
which is desirable in the interest of
general   business."    Mr. Blair,   in
his answer to the memorial, and afterward   in   an address to the Vancouver   Liberal    association,   went
pretty   fully into the railway question.    As to the Yukon railway, he
snid   that a Canadian railway had
been proposed by the Liberal   government.     "The   proposition   was
met with the most bitter hostility on
the   part   of the Conservatives in
Canada, and when they failed in the
house of commons to impress their
views and objections to the scheme
upon   that   branch of parliament,
they transferred their efforts to the
other  chamber, where there was a
majority of Conservatives, and succeeded in defeating the project, and
prevented the construction of a railway upon the terms and conditions
we  had arranged.    What has been
. the result?   A iarge measure of the
trade   which would have been ours
has passed into other hands.    It has
built up Seattle as nothing else   has
since   it  was a town, and while we
are now gaining upon them, there is
no ground for confidently believing;
that we are gaining quite so much
as we are told.    But whether we are
slightly or  moderately  advancing
upon our opponents in trade in the
United States, we are all events only
in control of a portion of the traffic,
the whole of which I believe would
legitimately belong to us under  the
conditions we were arranging."
Mr. Blair expressed his strong desire for the development of   British
were being asked for all over tha
country; the government must use
prudence in drawing on the public
exchequer for subsidies. His own
ideal was a transcontinental government railway, and he was not sure
even now the idea was fanciful or
chimerical. The task of providing
railways for Canada was a formidable one.
We  are  only five millions of
people, vested, in a  general  sense,
with a vast,  almost  immeasurable
heritage, a heritage filled with  untold and unexcelled resources. There
is np country where the soil is more
fertile than it is in millions of acres
in   Canada,   wMich the plough has
not  yet  touched,- and which man
has not yet invaded.    Railways are
j necessary to open up these great fertile tracts.    If we are to   invite the
people from the   world   outside  to
immigrate here, they have a right to
expect that the government can assure them the means of  transportation.    That  means  a great many
railways in many parts of   Canada,
and we feel as a government that we
have ample justification in going to
all reasonable lengths to meet tnis
need.    The tide of immigration   is
just   setting   in full and strong towards Canada, particularly ftom the
south, and I believe the time is near
when there will be a greater immigration than ever before to Canada
from the mother land.    This influx
of settlers must bring its problems.
It means an increase of soil productions, and necessarily  a means of
transport.    We cannot long remain
content   with   only one transcontinental line.    I am ambitious myself

Columbia,   but   said that railways
I am doing all I can in my small
way, without public pretence about
it, to insure its construction. There
are young men, and pernaps middle-
aged men, who are listening to me,
who will see three or four transcontinental lines running through Canada. And they will not see more
than enough. Railways will be
burdened with the enormous products which the earth will yield, and
in order that the best results may
follow from that, it is unquestionably necessary that the rates which
obtain for the transport of these
products should be as low as possible."
The minister pointed out also that
Mr.   Hill,   the   American rnilway
magnate, was greatly   interested  in
British Columbia railways, and was
prepared, under certain cohditions,
to   build   without government aid
from the Dominion or the province.
It will be seen by Mr.. Blair's speech
that although the   government railway is his own ideal, he is not going
to stand in the way of other means
promoting    railway    development.
And if we are not ready for government railways, we surely ought not
to give the cold shoulder to men who
are   ready   to build railways with
their own money.    British Columbia would have a fair right to complain   of   such a policy.    It would
have a right to say:   "Either let the
Americans come in and  build railways  for us,   or build them yourselves."   As  a matter of fact, the
notion of cutting off British Columbia from the United States is as futile as it is unjust.    Nobody dreams
of trying to enforce such a policy in
the  east,   and   it would not be attempted in the west if British   Columbia   had  50 representatives in
parliament,   as   it will have some

Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by travelling on
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs,- Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of'these trains is the' best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
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.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light syst m will include street arc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all present and future
needs, aud insuring ample protection from the ravages of
tire. At present water Is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
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, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pleturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia 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 Tancouver, 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 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 Canada—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 of
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries aud 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 lu the district. 'Lumber ran
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality oan always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the first importance 'to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter, and converter—the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, Is contiguous to the city. .
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautlble environments, the bright prospects 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 oity,
will be the best  and largest city in (the interior.
In reviewing the list of prominent
Canadian life insurance companies,
the "Imperial" of Toronto stands
out prominently on account of its
remarkably successful career. The
hoard of directors is composed of
strong financiers and gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
business. This company nas nothing but up-to-date liberal policies to
sell, and the fact that many large
policies have been issued by the
Imperial, running as high as $200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum
