V., V. & E. Engineers Reach
the Coast, After a Long
Overland Journey.
A dispatch from Vancouver announces the arrival in that city of
James H. Kennedy, chief engineer
of the V., V. & E., and A. M. Lupfer, chief locating engineer of the
Great Northern railway, who left
here'three weeks ago to make a reconnaissance of the proposed Coast-
Kootenay railway between Midway
and the coast. They covered most
of the distance on foot.
Wednesday a telegram was received from Mr. Kennedy. In it
he intimated that he had traversed
the projected route of the C. P. R.
between Princeton, in the Similkameen district, across the Hope
mountains to Hope station, on the
main line of the C. P. R. This is
the route which Hon. E. H. Dewd-
n.ey, government engineer, reported
to ly- impracticable. *
Mr. Kennedy also intimated that
he and Mr. Lupfer were starting
eastward to seek a more southerly
pass across the Hope mountains at
or near the international boundary
line. This route extends via Chilli-
wack lake aiid a tributary of the
Skagit river, which is regarded as
quite feasible.

girls to this city for immoral purposes. In her complaint the wife
alleges that Galloway forced her to
enter a life of shame.
Frederick Monteith, a schoolmate of W. C. Putnam, visited in
the city several days last week, and

A Vancouver dispatch states that
Norman McLean, who is now a
rival of the Great Northern, as well
as the Canadian Paciflo, is back
from Ottawa, where he went to see
about the chances of getting a subsidy.    In an interview he said:
' 'Everything is in excellent shape
and our financial arrangements have
so fully progressed that we are ready
to commence work on the actual
construction on the new line the
moment a Dominion subsidy is
granted for its construction.
'There is a general feeling in thc

of the Pacific province, and from

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 19,1902
Well, there's one consolation at
least. The mayor of Grand Forks
has only one term to serve. Nominations, like lightning, only strike
once in the same place.
Mayor Holland apparently has
adopted as his own especial motto
that well - known British defy,
': What we have we'll hold!" Which
is more than the people of Grand
Forks will do with their present
mayor next election.
In Provincial politics, federal
party lines should—and undoubtedly will—be adhered to in future
contests. But hi the next municipal
election everybody who has the welfare of Grand Forks at heart should
exert his most powerful efforts to
wipe out the Holland clique. No
apologist or Good Man Friday of the
present mayor should have the confidence "of the electors reposed in
him. This in an opportune time
to declare on which side you stand.
In view of the popular demand
that Thanksgiving day be celebrated
at an earlier date this year than
has been usually the case, it is more
than probable the governor-general
will proclaim the last Thursday in
October as a general day of thanksgiving for the prosperity which has
fallen upon Canada this year.
Hitherto the festal day, coming in
the latter part of November, has
been under such disagreeable weather conditions as to make thanksgiving in any sense almost an impossibility.

It is rumored that a well-known

return to Grand Forks in any capacity, which fact would cause no
regret.

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 jree reclining chair ears,
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 the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

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 main Kettle
river, and is distant about 800 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 eleotrio light system will include street arc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all present and future
needs, and Insuring ample protection from the ravages of
Are. At present water is supplied the oity by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
t
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 picturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pocifle 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 ef
fertile agricultural land, part of which is uow being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
dlvide<l\nto small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful In »he district. Lumber can
lie procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
duality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the first Importance to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Lurge mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountain*
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
aud perfect plant of the kind iu America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city. 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
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 8200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum

MINES AND MINING
Four care of Black Tail ore arrived
at the Granby smelter yesterday
from Republic. The recent shipment from the San Poil was so satisfactory that Manager Galusha is of
the opinion that the Black Tail
shipment will also prove satisfactory,
as there is little visible difference in
the appearance of the ore. Mr. Galusha accompanied the shipment to
the smelter. He thinks that other
shipments will soon follow, as he is
assured that some arrangement will
be made to get it treated.
Five cars of Tom Thumb ore is
now in transit to the Granby' smelter from Republic.
Five care of ore from the Zella M
mine, Republic, are now in transit
to the Granby smelter.
The Trade Dollar, at Republic,
is cutting a station at the 200-foot
level. It is expected that the crosscut will be driven about 100 feet
before encountered the ledge. The
management has figured on passing
through the ledge at a depth of
about 400 feet. The material at the
bottom of the shaft is highly mineralized, a good indication that a
strata of mineral is not far distant.
A force of 50 men is at work on
the Venus group, four miles from
Nelson, B. C., and the terminals for
a tramway from the mine to the
Athabasca mill are in course of construction. The property is expected
to be a steady shipper this winter.
M. R. Galusha, general manager
of the Black Tail and San Poil
mines, Republic, has furnished a
complete analysis of the 100-ton
sample of San Poil ore shipped to
the Granby smelter last week. ■ It
is the first complete analysis of ores
from any of the Republic mines
that has been given to the public,
therefore it is worth reading carefully and of being preserved: Gold,
8-10ths of an ounce; silver, 3 ounces
and 6-10ths; silica, 83 per cent;
iron, 2 and 9-10ths per cent; lime,
7 and 5-10ths; sulphur, 2-10ths of
1 per cent.—Republic American,
P. Kennedy has sold a one-eighth
interest in the Black Diamond and
Standard claims on Wallace mountain. It is reported that thc consideration was $500.
J. 0. Thompson has disposed of
an interest in the Jersey claim, situate on Wallace mountain, up the
West Fork.
Geo. Findley, road foreman, has
a gang of men at work putting the
road between Eholt and Long Lake
camp in good order, in readiness for
an expected resumption of ore hauling from the jewel mine. Another
gang, uner Michael Hayes, is at
work on the North Fork wagon road
near the bridge crossing the river
in the neighborhood of Volcanic
