VISIT OF TUB. SENA
An Informal Reception Was
Held at the Yale Saturday Evening,
Senator Templeman, British Columbia member of the" Dominion
government, and Aulay Morrison,
M. 1'., arrived in Grand Forks last
Saturday afternoon over the V.^ V.
tfc E. from the coast. The distinguished gentlemen are on a vacation
trip, traveling for pleasure and recreation, and also in order to better
familiarize themselves with the needs
of the great interior of the province.
Before their departure from tie
Boundary they will visit Greenwood,
Phoenix and various mining camps.
An informal reception was tendered the visitors at the Yale hotel
Saturday evening by prominent
Liheralsjof the twin cities. Among
those present were Dr. Macdonald,
who acted as chairman of the local
delegation, Mayor T. W. Holland,
Alderman J. J. Mcintosh, Charles
Hay, E. Doberer, Alex. Miller, W.
H. P. Clement, J. D. Spence, P. T.
McCallum and W. A. Stratton.
Short and felicitous speeches were
made by Mayor Holland, Messrs.
Clement, Hay, Spence and Miller
on live topics of the day. None of
the speakers had any complaint to
make about the manner in which
Dominion affairs were being administered. A different tune would be
sung, however, had the visitors been
provincial officials. The most important question brought out by the
speakers wo.s that urging the senator
to recommend the erection of a federal building in Grand Forks for the
customs, postoffice and internal
revenue.
The speeches of the evening were,
of course, made by tho visitors.
Senator Templeman, though he
spoke briefly, was quite eloquent.
He was heartily in favor of the
views expressed by the gentlemen
who had preceded him, and would
do everything in his power to secure
an appropriation for a government
building in the city. He was also
much impressed with the beauty of
the city and the surrounding country.
The visitors left for Greenwood on
the 1 o'clock train yesterday.

railways and canals, is expected to

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1902
The visit of the British newspaper
men to the Boundary can hardly
fail fo produce substantial results.
They will inspect in this city the
most complete smelting plant in
Canada, and in the surrounding
camps they will have an opportunity of seeing some of the greatest
mines in the province; they will
also see undeveloped properties tbat
only require capital to make them
veritable Golcondas. These men
come to write about what they see,
and the British investor, ever on the
alert for new and profitable investment channels, can scarcely fail to
be impressed with their account of
the Boundary country's wonderful
resources.
"'
The London Express gives the following interesting pen picture of the
Prime Minister at one of the many
sooial functions in London at which
he was the guest of honor: Sir Wilfrid Laurier was the hero and the
orator at the dinner given to the
coronation guests from the colonies
at the Constitutional club one night.
He replied to the toast of "Our
GuestB," which was proposed by
the Duke of Marlborough, and the
diners flocked from far tables to
stand in groups near the speaker.
They were not satisfied until they
had given three hearty cheers and
one cheer more, and sung "For He's
a.lolly Good Fellow." Tall, thin,
and distinguished, with the thin
ascotic face of a priest, the flowing
locks of the poet, the telling gestures
of the orator, and the cool air of
Mr. Chamberlain, Sir Wilfrid was a
pictures!|uc figure as he stood, with
his quiet smile, waiting for the
cheers to subside. In bim his
hearers recognized a strong and picturesque foic i, poet and proud Canadian and loyal imperialist, and a
man of affairs in one person, who
stood for the rights and dignities of
the colonies on one hand, and the
solid might of the empire on the
other. His accent, a quaint mixture of American slap-dash and soft
French inflection, was in keeping
with the sentiment of the speech.
The roar of applause with which the
guests greeted a casual reference to
them as "my fellow-countrymen,"
was significant as showing the esteem
in which Sir Wilfrid is held in the
mother country.
Ex-Premieb Gkkexway   is   one
11 who is not consumed with
on which he is at present cutting
nine hundred acres of wheat. It
will average at least 40 bushels to
the acre, which represents a larger
income than is gathered by any
public man in the country, not to
mention the profits from one of the
finest herds of thoroughbred cattle
in the world and from miscellaneous
sources.
The Phoenix trades and labor
council is worshiping a false god.
It has endorsed the socialist party.
The trouble with the average reformer is that is unable to reform
himself.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The Sun man hereby tenders his
services as umpire, if f that baseball
game between the Hot Air and the
printers is to pulled off next Saturday.
Al. Wrightjj who has been visiting
his brothers in this city during the
last two months, left for his old
home home in Plum Coulee, Man.,
this afternoon.
Walter D. Betts, son of Rev. J. F.
Betts, and one of our best known
athletes, leaves tomorrow for New
Westminster, where he will attend
school.
A good story is being circulated
tending to show the strict surveillance
under which the Hot Air employes
are held. It appears that recently a
train was overdue, and no news as
to its whereabouts could be obtained.
Finally the general manager sent
out a tracer, and after some time it
was ascertained that the train had
come to a standstill on the banks of
Curlew lake. The entire crew had
abandoned it and were busily engaged in angling.
J. B. Henderson returned yesterday from Revelstoke, where he is
superintending the erection of the
new school house of which he is the
architect. Mr. Henderson says that
work on the building is well advanced, and that splendid progress
is being made. He will remain in
the city abo'ut ten days before returning to his labors.
Harry liter returned yesterday
from Morrissey, the new coal town
in East Kootenay, where he went a
few days ago te look over the field.
Mr. Itter says that the town is at
present enjoying a building boom,
ami that its future prospects
are bright. While there Mr.
Itter purchased a lot for his firm,
and they may. establish a branch in
the town later ou.
Newton Coates, ex-quarantine officer of Cascade, is in the city today.
Rev. J. A. G. Calder, of the Columbia Presbyterian church, conducted services in Phoenix last Sunday.

ENGLISH MM
Will Arrive in Grand Forks
at 1 0'Clock Tomorrow
Afternoon.
A dispatch was received in the
city this morning from W. T. R.
Preston, chief commissioner of the
immigration department, who is in
charge of the party of English journalists now touring Canada, "saying
that the party would arrive in Grand
Forks from Rossland at 1 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon, and would
leave in the evening for Greenwood.
A committee, consisting of Aid.
Sheads, Hammar and Gaw, has
been selected by the city council
to meet the party at the train. This
committee will probably be augmented by members from the board
of trade and prominent citizens.
The programme thus fat outlined
includes carriage drives through the
city and its suburbs, and a visit to
the Granbv smelter.
! On motion, all bills were ordered
paid.
I The only matter of ^importance
coming up for consideration was a
petition from the residents of the
North addition, asking that a hose
cart and about 500 feet of hose be
housed in that portion of the city as
a further protection from fire. After
the subject had been debated pro
and con, a resolution authorizing the
removal of the shed, cart and hose
now kept on Bridge Square opposite
the Yale hotel to the Norto addition, was carried; Aid. Sheads
pointed out that this left the business portion of the city with inadequate protection against fire, and on
this representation it was decided to
order a new cart forthwith. On its
arrival the one now kept on Bridge
Square will lie removed to the North
addition.
GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
In the absence of Mayor Holland,
Aid. Sheads occupied the chair at
last night's meeting of the Grand
Forks city council. The session was
both short and unimportant, owing
to the absence from the city on leave
of two of the aldermen.
A benefit concert in aid of  Mrs.
Simons will be given in the Biden /
opera opera house   tomorrow   evening by the best local talent of the
city.
A reception was tendered R. W. B.,

WHY GO EAST
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 thc best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
le'ct 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 thc continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande
Lines, No. 124 Third Street, Portland, Ore.

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
Advanced.
The City of Columbia is situated near the junction of
the North Porks of the Kettle river with the inuln Kettle
river,  und is distunt ubout 300 miles eust of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-dnte und modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light syst-m will include street urc lumps. The waterworks system is planned
on u sufficiently lurge scale to meet all present and future
needs, and insuring ample protection from the ravages of
fire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
The natural situation of the oity for beauty Is not excelled
InAmerien. A verdure clad nnd flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a oharming combination of picturesquesness and grun-
deur.
The Columbia ft Western roilway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Ruilwuy company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vanoouver, Victora ft 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 Pacilie railway company has lurge Interests In the city, huving selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a ruilwuy centre.
The climnte, tuken all the year around, Is the best iu Cun-
adu—part of the summer is rntlier hot and dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River vulley there is uu extent of
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultl-
vuted.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruit* grow abundantly. The vulley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit und vegetable farms, will sustain n
lurge population,
lluildiug material is plentiful In the district. Lumber run
be procured at fair prices, aud brick lime nnd stone of good
iiuitlity oan iilwuys be obtained when required.
The mining interests nreof tho first importance to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Lurge mineral lodes huve been discovered throughout the mountain!
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now lurge puying 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
beautible 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
; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
t.and '""mit fl** In .the Interior. IMPERIAL LIFE
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
board of directors is composed of
strong financiers and gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
bWness. 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

MINES AND MINING
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 4978 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 480 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 2176 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 300 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 130 tons; total
for past week, 8064 tons; total for
1902, 306,471. '   '
The Granby smelter' last week
treated 5022 tons of oro. Total for
1902, 200,189 tons.
George W. Fraser, at one time
master mechanic at the Montreal &
Boston Copper company's Sunset
and Crown Silver mines, near Greenwood, and afterwards occupying a
similar position at the Granby company's mines at Phoenix, has returned to the Boundary to fill the
position of master mechanic at the
B. C. Copper company's Mother
Lode mine, in succession to 11. W.
Hinton, who lately left the Mother
Lode for the Le Hoi, Rossland.
Tomorrow will be the monthly
payday at the Granby mines and
smelter.
A rich strike is reported ,from the
Alpha, Franklin camp, owned by
Harry McLaren. Two and a half
feet of $35 ore was encountered at a
depth of ten feet. Very encouraging reports from this camp are general.
A large force of men was put to
work at the B. C. mine last week.
Much activity is now evident at thc
mine.
A working bond on the Defiance
in Providence camp has been obtained by Spokane men.
High-grade ore has been struck on
the Coronation claim, Providence
camp, which was located on June
26th last.
Harry Shallenbergcr, who is developing the Crescent mine, Skylark
camp, expects to increase the force
of men shortly. It is a high-grade
proposition with an excellent showing.
The Sunset mine, in Deadwood
camp, is again a shipper. About
120 tons are being shipped daily,
the ore at present going to the
Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood.
Ore shipments for the entire Slocan for 1902 amounted to about 20,-
000 tons. From Rossland they are
over 200,000, and from the Boundary 806,471.
Assay returns on a recent sample
taken from the ledge in the Copper
Bluff', owned by the Asbnola Smelter, Ltd., give gold values at $1.80,
silver $19.03 and copper $48.87.
Owing to concessions in freight
rates granted by thc Great Northern,
the Le Roi will materially increase
the monthly ore output.
The Canadian Mining Institute
meets in Nelson this week.
A valuable copper strike was made
on the Copper Star group, Salisbury
