6RAKEMAN KILLED
Yesterday afternoon Harry Bell
lost his life near Fisherman, a small
station on the C. P. R. this side of
Eholt, by falling off a freight train.
He was a brakeman on the train,
and in attempttng to jump off to
open a switch he slipped and fell,
his head striking a rock, killing him
almost instantly. At the time the
accident occurred the train was running at the rate of four miles an
hour. The remains were taken to
Greenwood last night.
Bell was well known in this city,
having been employed at the Model
livery stable last night.
A BRILLIANT SUCCESS
The social held last night in the
Presbyterian hall under the auspices
of the Ladies' Aid was in every sense
of the word a great success. So
many were present that even standing room was at a premium. The
chair was taken by Mr. R. W. Trotter. ,
The program was from first to last a
musical treat. Miss Shepherd's recitation of "White Shell" was much
enjoyed, and she very graciously responded to an appreciative encore.
Messrs. Hinton and Pallett responded with!'All's Well," by Braham,
and Mr. Hinton with "The Life of a
Soldier," by Gerald Lane. Mr.
Trotter also had to respond before
the aud'ence would permit the program t<> continue. The solo, "Tit
for Tat," sung by Mrs. Munro, was
also warmly erilpred. Other persons
who took part with great credit to
themselves Were Miss Phila Wells,
Mrs. Wright and Messrs. Ingram
and Wright. We" have loft littla
Alice Lequime to the last. If she
was the "leas!'' of those who entertained us last night, she certainly
did not entertain us the least. Her
singing of Couchois' ' 'Let Me Kiss
Your Tears Away," was splendid.
Her articulation is clear, and the
way she took the G natural in the
closing bars simply brought down the
house. Her recitation also was good,
showing great motive ability.
After the close of the program, refreshments were served by the ladies.
With a well satisfied feeling, both
mental and physical, every one
joined in singing "Aukl Lang Syne"
before leaving for home.
ACCIDENT_AT SMELTER
Yesterday morning about 8:30
o'clock Roy Curran, an oiler at the
Granby smelter, while endeavoring
to slip on a belt, got his right arm
on the inside of it, and was cought
between the wheel and the belt,
The arm was broken in four places,
rendering him unconscious for
about fifteen minutes. Besides
fie injury to the arm, he also received a bad scalp wound and other
bruises about the body. Luckily
the belt broke, or young Curran
would probably have been killed
outright. Drs. Northrop and Kingston set the arm and dressed the
wounds, and the patient is now reported to be doing nicely.
A NEW ENTERPRISE
J. Burtt Morgan, of Nelson, B.C.,
has been appointed district manager
of the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York for the Koote-
nays and the Boundary, and will
establish his headquarters in Grand
Forks. He has rented the office
rooms in the Biden block lately occupied by A. C. Sutton. They will
be handsomely furnished, and a
plate glass front/ put in, and other
improvement mk.de tending to make
the building attractive.
Mr. Morgan has rented R. W.
Trotter's handsome residence in the
West ward, and will move his family
from Nelson lo this city next week.
Mr. Morgan is an energetic business man, and the establishment of
his headquarters here is a valuable
acquisition to the city.

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Word was received at the smelter
t might that a basis for the settlement of the Fernie strike had been
arrived at. Apparently, all that remains to be done to end the struggle is the signing of an agreement.
The citizens' meeting called for
hist evening for the purpose of hear-
idg a report from the delegates to
the Provincial Mining association,
was postponed to some future date
owning to a very small attendance.
In announcing the postponement,
MayorBurrell stated thaijthe meeting
in Victoria had been very largely attended, and was an cnthusiaticbody
of representative cjtizens. He
regretted to see thc lack of interest
taken in the movement by the people
of the city, and as there were so few
present he thought thc best plan
would he to adjourn the meeting until the printed report of the Victoria
session should arrive, when the local
branch could organized on the
lines laid down by the provincial
association. He read a telegram
which he had received during the
day from A. ('. Flumerfelt, of thc
conciliation committee sent to Fernie, in which that gentleman stated
that the committee was doing • good
work and making progress, and he
was hopeful that the desired result
would soon be reached. The mayor
said that if the meeting of the association accomplished nothing else
than the settling of the Fernie strike,
it had been a big success.
Rev. and Mrs. Ralph W. Trotter
will leave for the east tomorrow
over the  Great    Nothern.     They
had not expected to go until next
week, but Mr. Trotter received a telegram yesterday from Amherst, N.S.,
announcing thc serious illness of his
wife's father in that city, hence thc
change in their plans. Rev. Trotter
has received calls from several
several city churches in the cast,
and has decided to accept one of
them, consequently it may be a
number of years before he will return to Grand Forks. He still retains his property interests in this
city, however, and expects to make
this place his fuUire home. The
community at large will regret to
lose Mr. Trotter and his estimable
wife. As a private citizen Mr.
Trotter has been energetic and progressive, and during the short time
he served the city as alderman he
has made an enviable record.
L. P. Eckstein, barrister, etc.,
late solicitor for the Kettle Valley
lines, with headquarters at Republic,
has opened an office in the Morrison
block in this city. Mr. Eckstein
was formerlp city solicitor of Grand
Forks.
The president and member of the
Ladies' Aid of the Columbia Presbyterian church wish to sincerely thank
those who came so far last night to
assist in theprog.-am. Their kindness was very much appreciated.
Last night's social was practically
a farewell to both the ministers who
have been living in our community
lately. Mr. Trotter leaves at once
for the East, and at the end of thc
month Mr. Calder departs for New
Westminster.
Monday, March 16, the literary
committee of the Epworth League
will give an evening on Canadian
history. The subject will be the
early French regime in Canada. Thc
theme promises tb he one of interest
to every one, and all are cordially
invited to attend.
Edward Wesley Bolton, of Grand
Forks, and Miss Lihby Knight, of
Dunrca, Manitoba, were united in
marriiige by thc Rev. Dr. Wright at
the Victoria hotel in Nelson, B. G,
last Wednesday evening.
R. J. Hamilton, of Nelson, representing R. P. Rithot&Co., Victoria,
was in the city Wednesday, stopping
at the Hotel Winnipeg.
Kelly Bros., thc now meat merchants, report that their trade is
steadily increasing, and they are
making preparations to do a big
business during the coming summer.
Mr. P. D. McDonald has been
confined to her home by an attack
of thc grip during the pas} week.
Rev. $. A. G. Calder is suffering
from a very severe attack of the grip. Stye Etotttttg £mt

THE   NORTH  FORK ROAD
A meeting of the North Fork Road
association was held at Grand Forks
on the 9th inst., at which the following motions and .lesolutions were
passed:
Moved by Thos. Newby, seconded
by Wm. Emard—That thc North
. Fork Road association regrets to see
that the mayor of Grand Forks has
made a statement that there may be
an appropriation of $5000 for the
Franklin camp wagon road. Thc
association has in its possession documents from the minister of lands
and works guaranteeing to complete
the road during the present year;
and for that reason we must condemn the statement made by the
mayor of Grand Forks, when it is
a well-known fact to any one who
has been over the trail to the said
camp,that it is an absolute necessity
to expend at least $10,000 to make
a passable road. It may probably
not be known to the general public
that there are two bridges to be built
on rapid streams, which will cost, at
the lowest calculation, $2000.
Moved by Wm. Minion, seconded
by James Newby—That the association respectfully call the attention ol
the government to the fact that
$5000 would simply leave the said
road in the wilderness.
Moved by A. Rice, seconded by
Ben Sweezy—That the association
respectfully call the attention of thc
government to the fact, that nearly
$3000 have been paid in as preliminary fees ou thc coal and timber lands
on the west and east forks of Kettle
river,for which1 no return has been received. Further, we find that the
goveynment is opening up the hoth-
ern part of British Columbia at ah
enormous expense, .while the portions tributary to the present railroads are hampered with such rc-
s[notions thy cannot develop. For
that reason we ask you to do awap
with thc iniquitous land reserve.
Moved by John Morrill, seconded
by Frank Fritz—That this association hereby request the commissioner of lands and works to instruct
his officials that, as far as possible,
all work in Grand Forks mining
division be given to residents of said
division. Further resolved, that the
North Fork Road association objects
to thc acting gold commissioner at
Greenwood having the control of the
funds of the Grand Forks mining
division, and would strongly recommend that the acting gold commissioner at Grand Forks be given control of the funds. Further, the
association would respectfully call
thc   attention of the chief commis
sioner of lands and works to the fact
that, after continued notices having
been given to the department^ it is
impossible for men residiug in this
division to get employment on government roads and bridges as foremen or workmen, and we hereby demand the right of our own foremen
and our own workmen in our own
mining division.
Moved by W. H. Disbrowe, seconded by Thos. Newby—That it is
hereby resolved that we form ourselves into the North Fork Development company.
The following provisional officers
were appointed: Thomas Newby,
president; W. H. Disbrqwe, vice-
president; G. C. McGregor, secretary.

REV. IRL R. HICKS' 1903 ALMANAC
To say that this splendid work of
science and art is finer and better,
than ever, is stating it mildly. The
demand for it is far beyond all previous years. To say that such results, reaching through thirty
years, arc not based'upon sound
sense and usefulness, is an insult to
the intelligence of the millions.
Prof. Hicks, through his great Almanac, and his famous family and
scientific journal, Word and Works.
is doing a work for the whole people
not approached by any other mai i
or publication. A fair'test will provi
this to any reasonable person. Added
to the most luminous course in
astronomy for 1<)03, forecasts of
storms and weather are given as
never before, for every day in the
year, all charmingly illustrated with
nearly two hundred engravings.
The price of single Almanac, including postage and mailing, is thirty
cents. Word and Works with thc
Almanac is $1.00 a year. Write to
Word and Works Publishing Co.,
2201 Locust Street, St. Louis, Mo.,
and prove to yourself their great
value.
The Evening Sun job department
is the best ecpiipped in the Boundary for printing neat pamphlets
and price lists. Our material is

WHY GO EAST
Over the snn-burned, sage brush"
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through thc
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of thc 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 cast
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is thc best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lcct dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after thc
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing thc continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

IMPERIAL LIFE.
hi reviewing the list of prominent
Canadian life insurance companies,
the "Ihrperial" of Toronto stands
out prominently on account of its
remarkably successful career. The
board of directors is composed of
strong financiers nnd gentlemen ol
large .experience in the insurance
business. This company nos nothing but up-to-date liberal policies to
sell, and the fact that many large
policies have been issued by thc"
Imperial, running as high as $200,-
()()() on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company. Mr. .1. A. McCallum
is agent at Columbia and Grand
Forks.
The Eastern Townships bank, one
of the most conservative of the char-)
tered.banks of the Dominion, and
which for years has confined its
business to the provinces of Quebec
and British Columbia, last week
opened a branch in the city of Winnipeg. In addition to this, in the
province of Quebec additional
branches'havo been or arc about to
be opened at Farnham, St. Joseph
de Beauce, and two more branches
in the city of .Montreal, it would
not be surprising to see this bank
start branches at the coast in British
Columbia in tho near future. At
present the only branches in this
province are located at Grand Forks
and Phoenix,
SEEDS!
The Columbia & Western Railway company has entered suit in
the supreme court of British Columbia against those who have preempted and purchased lands and secured timber limits from the provincial government in lot 4594, lying
across Elk river from the towns of
Fernie, Coal Creek and Sparwood.
The disputed land includes the present site of Morrissey on Elk river.
Several years ago thc Columbia &
Western secured a laud subsidy for
building its road, and chose this plot
and another one. It seems that the
crown grants to these lots were
signed before government officials
discovered that the act allowing the
land subsidy to tho railroad, and
they then refused to deliver the
crown grants. It would also appear
that thc Columbia & Western had
found put this fact in some way,
and is now, contending that the title
passed to it as soon as their crown
grants were signed, and that their
validity was-not affected by failure
to deliver. 1
The other, lot 4593, which the
company claims, comprises the land
held under government reserve, and
is situated in the southeastern part
of the province, including all that
part drained by the headwaters of
the Flathead river and its tributaries
and covering many miles of good
coal and oil bearing lands.
In connection with SEEDS
the name of D. M. Ferry C&
