No. 9
GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
The proceedings of the Grand
Forks city council last night were
conducted more in the style of an
informal com ersazionc than in the
slow and punctilious manner of a
parliamentary body.
Mayor Holland had just returned
from Toronto, ahd was too tired to
preside, so Acting Mayor Sheads occupied the chair. The aldermen
present were: Donaldson, Gaw,
.Matheson and Hammar.
The minutes of the previous meeting wei'| lead and approved, after
which the following bills were or-
d'red paid!
Granby Con. Co., $43.05; Mun-
derloh ifc Co., $7; J. W. Jones,
$11(1.10; J, Taylor, $18; J. M.
Simpson, $9.75; Itter '& Askew,
$1.25; Grand Forks Publishing Co.,
$8.10; Grand Forks Transfer Co.,
$23.70; Addison & Knapp, $142;
C. P. R. Tel., 16:08; Geo. Chappie,
$8.00.
A commuication from McCallum
& McCallum, drawing attention to
the fact that the insurance on some
of the corporation's property is
about to expire, was read. ^On
motion of Aid. Donaldson, seconded
by Aid. Matheson, the city clerk
was instructed to have the insurance
on the city nail renewed, and to
have same transferred to the Royal
company.
A long discussion then followed
in regard to opening an alleyway
back of Dr. Northrop's residence,
but no definite action was taken.
Aid. Hammar'8 wash-house bylaw passed its third reading! The
chief of police was instructed lo notify all parties concerned that it
would be enforced after tliij'ty days.
The city clerk was empowered to
purchase a card index tilj'ng cabinet.
Aid. Hammar then sgrang a sensation on the council bv saying that
he had a scheme whereby the city
could get Bridge street/opened up to
the V., V. A E. depotrat little or no
cost. Rut the secret/ was too good
to divulge, and so tjie council adjourned until 3 ti'clock this afternoon, when the matter will lie considered,
SUNSET SIGNALS
It may just.'be a coincidence that
just about the time Tracy W. Holland reached the east, the announcement was made that a new transcontinental 1 ine of 3000 miles and
costing 8i(X};000,000 is to be built
through Canada; but most people
out here will readily conclude that
the former general manager of   the
!
Hot Air road, having so successfully
conducted the local enterprise, will
exercise his railway experience in
building the new competitor of the
Canadian Pacific.
The wires connecting the Grand
Forks and Columbia electric lighting systems were cut by order of
Acting Mayor Sheads the other day.
Mr. Sheads is probably not aware
that the council of Columbia, in
constructing a portion of the line in
Grand Forks, acted under an act of
the legislature, and that it has the
same right to protect that portion of
the line as though it were located
within the corporation of Columbia.
It may only be a coincidence, but
it appears strange that Aid. Hammar *should have conceived his
scheme for opening up Rridge street
on the same day that Mayor Holland returned to the city.
It appears that Mayor Holland
has already commenced to pull the
strings on his marionette.
Mayor Holland returned to Grand
Forks from his Toronto trip yesterday. Is it any wonder there was a
severe frost last night?
"Other People's Money" is the
name of a play which is to be given
in the opera house here at an early
date. It has no reference, as some
people might imagine, to the particular way in which Tracy W. Holland built the Hot Air road.
John Donaldson has just received
from Spokane a carload of the finest
apples ever brought to this city.
Any British Subject, of the
full age of twenty-one years,
who was residing within the
limits ot the Municipality of
the City of Columbia on the
first day of January last, and
has continuously resided in
said Municipality since said
day, who wishes to have his
or her name entered upon
the VOTERS' LIST as a
Householder or as a holder
of a Traders' Licence, shall,
during the month of December, make and cause to be
delivered to the Clerk a statutory declaration, a form of
which may be obtained at
the City Clerk's office.

TUESDAY,   DECEMBER 2, 1902
The Conservative press'at the coast
make undue haste in heralding Col.
Prior' Sjjgoverhment as the strongest
British Columbia ever had. Here
is the new premier's cabinet: Premier and minister of mines, Hon.
E. G. Prior; chief commissioner of
lands and works, Hon. W. ('. Wells:
minister of finance and agriculture,
Hon. J. D. Prentice; attorney-general, lion. 1). M. Eberts; Provincial
secretary and minister of education,
Hon. Dennis Murphy; prefide.it o'
the council, Hon. \V. "W. B. Mc-
Innis. \Vith the exception of
Murphy and McJ.nnis. it is the same
old crew. The changing of captain^
in mid-siren in is not calculated in
impart strength to a ship.
The Nelson Tribune says: "The
first issue of The Tribune appeared
on Thursday, November 24th, 1892
—ten years ago. Its owners then
were John Houston, W. J. McKay
; nd C. V. Dake. Its owner now is
John Houston. Its owners in 1892
had no capital. Its owner now has
less." If all publishers would use
h;um,1 frankness, Mr. Houston's
unique financial statement could be
extensively imitated in this province.
If Mayor Holland has no other
means of reaching Grand Forks, we
desire lo inform him that 'he conditions for a nice snowshoe walk between tliis city and Toronto arc now
perfect.
I f Mayor Holland stands for reelection, he will probably feel real
tired at the close of the polls, when
he can go away back and sit  down.
The Hot Air railway is still doing
business at thc old stand—with emphasis On "stand.''
WILL BORE FOB OIL
His majesty's vice-consul at Los
Angeles, Cnl., C. White.Mortimer)
bas purchased a ten-acre tract of
land, situated half a mile south of
(irand Forks, from Frank Ruckle,
and intends to bore for oil thereon.
It is the intention of purchaser to
interest English capital in the proposition and install, a boring plant.
Mr. Mortimer has already made two
trips to this city in connection with
this matter, and has expressed the
opinion that the entire valiey is'un-
dcrlaid with oil. He is interested
in oil lands inTalifornia.
THE ANNIVERSARY ADDRESS
Editor Ecening Sun:
The anniversary social held in the
Methodist church, Grand Forks, on
the evening of the 17th ult. was all
The Sun described it—an unqualified success. My name did not appear on the program, but I was
asked by Rev. Mr. Betts to give a
five minutes' speech. My remarks
were, I think, confined to the time
limit. Instead, however, of plunging at once into my subject, I indulged in a few pleasantries, as the
preceding speakers had done, and
lost time. In the compressing process counsel, I fear, was darkened
and my remarks were misunderstood. There was no particular
merit in what had been hurriedly
thrown off before leaving home, but
to correct a mistaken judgment I
shall take it as a kindness if you
will insert it in The Sun as it was
written:
We are confronted today with new
problems and new duties. The
question raised by Lord Kelvin in
regard to the sun and the catastrophe that must sooner or later befal
our earth i» a startling one. Rut
with all due respect to thc noted
scientist, we thougut last July the
sun had lost none oi his power. Indeed, there were many wiio thought
the heatrrrg*f)ower of the big furnace
had greatiy increased, but there
are hundreds who are le.uly to swear
by Lord Kelvin. H.s theory exactly suits the pessimist. It aifords
him a golden opportunity of crossing a hundred bridges before he
comes to them. He can sit down
and worry over thc race slowly perishing of cold, and he can shed
Hoods of tears as he pictures to himself the last man, over whose head
the sun is dying, taking his lonely
exit from the world. The subject
is a large one, and gives ample
scope for the imagination, but it has
no practical significance for us. The
labor problem, the liquor problem,
the problem of how the church may
reach the masses, has. Is tho church
trying to solve these problems? Is
it the aggressive power in the world
it-should be? Is it doing the work
the Master gave it to do? The Hon.
J. W. Longley, attorney-general of
Nova Scotia, says it is not. And
Mr. Longley is not an infidel or an
unbeliever of any kind. On the
contrary, he is a pillar and a shining light in the Baptist church. Yet
he formally indicts the church for
Its lack of Christianity. He, of
course, admits a "saving resurant"
—individual instances of saintliness
in life, but the average congregation
and the mass of the christian world,
he avers, ignore thc necessity of the
cardinal doctrines and the cardinal
virtues ofthe christian religion. His
"Gods of the Twentieth Century" is
a pungent piece of writing, it declares, in brief:
1. That the proportion ofthe male
attendants at church has not grown
with the century.
2. That tin; average congregation
is composed of men seeking wealth,
powerond position, and of women
who think it is a mortal sin to deny
a tenet of orthodoxy, but who see
nothing wrong in ignoring the essence of tiie teachings of, the Founder of tbe christian religion.
- 3. That Industrialism and Mnm-
monisni are the only two gods tbat
are universally worshiped at thc beginning of twentieth century.
4. Tbat the churches arc filled
witli critics who cither smile at thc
theological tenets of the preacher or
dissent in toto from them.
This is thc estimate Mr. Longley
has formed of the church as it exits
today. He believes that, judged by
the Sermon on the Mount, the
church itself needs largely to be
christianized; and in his view the
time has come,when "judgment
must begin at the house of God."
Mr. Longley is in most matters the
soul of good cheer, and it wis not in
a fit of "blues" tha}, he j enned the
sentence in regard to the critics in
the church. But there are critics
and critics. Some are destructive,
and seek to destroy things for the
sake of putting an end to real or imaginary evils. They are willing to
wreck the state or blow the church
into fragments to put an end to evil.
Their method is singulary effective.
Blow up a warehouse with dynamite
because it is infested with rats, and
you get rid of the rats—and the
warehouse, too. But there is no
special merit in that kind of work.
It requires neither brains nor sense.
A mental imbecile can destroy Government house at Ottawa or the
White House at Washington as
easily as Laurier. or  Roosevelt can.
Then there is a class of critics
that always seek to block thc wheels
of progress. They are obstructionists wherever you find them. Their
mental attitude is that of the Scotch
elder who, when asked by a visiting Presbytery, the kind of work be
did in the congregation, replied}!
"Mr. Mpdeiafor, the work I fib is
t! is: When the minister or a member of the session proposes to do
anything, 1 say 'object.'" Thank
Cod the members of the church are
not all like the Scotch elder—they
are not all critics. We have members of the highest order—members
whose main business is to build up,
not destroy. They may have tp put
an end to evil, but they are always
ready to put something good in its
place. Jesus Christ came to the
world to put an end to sin, but He
put righteousness in the place of
sin. And what the church heeds
today is a revival of Chritism—an
organized effort of those who believe
more in the true ideal of life than
they do in Mammon or fashion to
stem the tide of materialism and, to
lead,
Christianity could do much to
solve the problem^ of the day. The
labor problem, the liquor problem,
the problem of how to reach the
masses, would soon be solved if all
who call themselves christians were
aggressive christian forces in thc
world. We have young men—
splendid young men—in all our
churches who arc anxious to work
for thc Master. But when they start
out with their enthusiasm they arc
laughed at. They are told that
gambling, drunkenness and lawlessness of .all sorts have come to stay.
I say it is not true. It is courage
and virtue that have come to stay.
No compromise must be made with
wrong. What are we hero for? We
arc here to get control of the world.
That is civilization. We are here to
overcome moral evil. That is Christianity. Thc fighttonny be a long
one, but the issue is not doubtful.

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, are 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 man
or publication. A fair test will prove
this to any reasonable person. Added
to the most luminous course in
astronomy for 1903, 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 the
Almanac is 81.00 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 equipped in the Boundary for printing neat pamphlets
and price lists. Our material is

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when 5,'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 cais,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lect dining car service, and also
personalty 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 bje found
than is provided by thes^f excursions, i

COLUMBIA
A CITY OF BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENTS,
EALTHFUL CLIMATE AND BOUNTIFUL
RESOURCES—SPLENDID ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND WATERWORKS SYSTEMS—THE
RAILWAY CENTRE OF SOUTHEASTERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The City of Columbia   is   situated near the junction of
o the North Forks of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river, and Is distant about 300 miles east of Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. Theelectrlo light systin 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
fire. At present water Is supplied the oity by pumping from
• beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
The natural situation of the oity for beauty Is not excelled
In Ameriea. A verdure-clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling water,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pieturesquesness 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 Tanoouver, Tlotora A Eastern Railway oompany, 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/'anndian Pacific railway company has large Interests lu the oity, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,'
The climate, taken all the year arom d 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 «f
fertile agricultural {and, 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 fruit and vegetable farms, will ■iiktain.it
large population.
Building material Is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, aud brick lime and stone of good
quality can 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 mountain*
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospects a short
'time since are now large paying mines.
let*
The Granby smelter and converter -the   most   modem
aud 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 oity of homes, as'well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the best  and largest city in,   lie ii.lttin,

IMPERIAL LIFE.
In reviewing thc list of prominent,
Canadian life insurance companies
the "Imperial" of Toronto stands
out prominently on account of ite
remarkably successful career. Th 1
board of directors is composed oi
strong financiers and gentlemen o

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
