Albert Knepper Is Heavily
Fined for Evading Payment of Customs.
A case of more than passing interest was tried before Justices
Spraggett and McCallum in Grand
Forks, Wednesday evening, the'end
of which carries a sequel in the form
of a mora'. It demonstrates that honesty is the best policy, not only from
an ethical standpoint, but also when
viewed in the sordid light of your
pocketbook. In short, it shows
that honesty pays as big dividends
as the average gold mine,
i About the first September last
Albert Knepper entered Canada at
the port of Cascade. The only dutiable property he brought with him
was a horse and saddle. He said
he did not have have enough
money at the time to pay the
impost; but as he told a very
plausible hard-luck story, George
C. Rose, the customs officer at that
port, was lenient with the man
and allowed him to proceed on
his journey rejoicing—on the pro m-
ise that the money would be forthcoming as soon as he could dispose
of cay use and saddle.
Knepper went to the Okanagan
country, where^hesold his property,
but in the meantime he had evidently forgotten all about the customs fee charged up against him
at Cascade. At least he made no
effort to pay it.
Customs Officer Rose waited patiently until he became fully convinced that tne man was a deadbeat
and never intended to pay. Then
he proceeded to take action. He
a warrant sworn out for the arrest
of Knepper and placed it in the
hands of the provincial police.
The arrest was made by Provincial Policeman Venner,'who brought
the prisoner to this city Wednesday.
At the trial before the above-named
justices that evening he was fined
6125.90 for evading prepayment of
duties on one horse and saddle.
The original duty was $10. Does
it pay to be dishonest?
RETURN OF A PIONEER.
Charles M. Rendell, who at one
time owned the land on which Columbia is located, has returned to
the Boundary, after an absence of
four years in Newfoundland, where
he was connected with a mining
company. He is a brother of G. A.
Rendell, J. P., of Eholt. His wife
accompanies him, and it is expected that they will remain in the
district.
It is now fifteen years since Mr.
Rendell first came to British Columbia. After a year at Vernon, in the
Okanagan district, he came to the
Boundary, and for several years he
lived at Grand Prairie, taking up. a
pre-emption where the city of Columbia now is. This land he sold to
the old townsite company, and when
the affairs of that concern was wound
up it passed into the hands of Henry
White, who is the present owner.
Half a dozen years ago Mr. Rendell pre-empted land on Eholt
creek, between Eholt meadow and
where the town of Eholt was located later on,
Mr. Rendell is well known to
most of the Boundary pioneers, who
are glad to see him back again.
$14.50 TO THE TON
What promises to be an important
mine is at present being opened in
the Alabama group of claims, the
property of the Lucille Dreyfus Min-
ingcompany, located at Danville,
Wash. The tunnel to tap the vein
at the bottom of the winze from the
upper tunnel, after encountering the
vein and following along the old
level some 50 feet, was turned on
its true course and extended a distance of 108 feet, following along a
perfect hanging wall. At this point
a cross-cut was started in a westerly
direction across the ledge. This
cross-cut has been extended 23 feet
with no footwall in sight at last reports. The ore is solid iron sulphide, with little waste and very
uniform in value, samples recently
taken averaging $14.50 in gold
alone.
The property is remarkably well
situated for economical and profitable working, being less than 800
feet from the main line of the Washington & Great Northern railroad, at
an elevation approximating 600 feet
above. The property, which consist of five claims and two fractions,
is all well timbered, with the waters
of the Kettle river less than
1000 feet from the present workings, while thc surface ground extend nearly or quite to the river at
one point.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24,  1902.
Hon. J. I. Takte, minister of
public works, has handed in his
resignation, by request of Premier
Laurier. Mr. Tarte committed political suicide by doing too much
talking, a malady that has caused
the downfall of a great- number of
public men.
It has been suggested that a good
way to solve the problem what to do
with ihe Hot Air road, would be to
hang it on a Christmas tree next December. But then only a multimillionaire could afford to operate
such a costly toy.
omens of this terrible year of earthquakes, floods, eruptions, cyclones,
fires, murders, coal famine, Hot
Air injunctions and the increase in
the prices of beef and bread. At
first telescopic, the comet is approaching the trembling earth Avith
such automobilic speed that it is
now plainly visible. What further
horrors it portends, the Lord only
knows.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The birds arc wending their way
southward, an infallible sign of approaching winter. Politicians are
raising their voice at harvest festivals, just as sure a sign that they
expect an election.    ■
Sib John Bourinot, who for
niiiny years has been a light to the
pntii of the budding parliamentarian, has departed this life. He
had long been thc final authority on
parliamentary procedure and constitutional practice at the Dominion
capital. His works on favorite
themes have become the standard
in Canada, Another clerk of the
house of commons will arise ■ in his
place at the head of the table, but
in the eyes of the old-timers he will
never fill that chair as its iate occu-
pnnl fill .'tl it The shades of many
of Canada's gifted sons now haunt
the legislative halls.
The statement recently issued by
the Dominion finance department
shows that for the year ending June
30 last, there was a surplus of over
87,000,000. When the capital account was included, S3, .'100,000 was
added to the public debt, which is
now $271,000,000. For thc three
months of tho current fiscal year
there was a big increase in revenue
and a large decrease in expenditures, making a surplus over all
classes uf expenditure of $6,flOO,000,
and this in spite of increases in all
branches of the service.
Ax interesting census report shows
that while Great Britain has about
1,900,000 trade unionists the United States and Canada for about
twice the population there are only
l,(i(X),000.
A comet, named after Prof. Per-
rine,   its  discover, is added to the
Frank Fritz and C. W. Harrigan,
the well known prospectors, left last
Wednesday afternoon for their
claims in the Thunder Hill camp,
where they will remain until the
holidays.
Miss J. Ainslee, who has been
visiting in Republic for several
weeks, returned to her home in this
city yesterday.
The No. 1 furnace at the Granby
smelter will be blown in next Mou-
day. This will make three furnaces in
active operation, only one remaining idle, which will be blown
as soon as the Cascade power supply
gets into the smelter.
The Granby • smelter this week
treated 4672 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 233,060 tons.
The report circulated some days
ago, says the Republic American,
that the Tom Thumb mine was to
pass to the control of the Granby
company, cannot be verified. There
is a probability that some negotiations tending in that direction are
under way, but nothing definite is
known here in regard to the matter.
Next week the Black Tail mine,
Republic, will ship one hundred
tons of ore to the Granby smelter,
and thc San Poil the same amount.
M. G. Galusha, the manager of
these properties, is the authority for
this sthtement.
An uneasy feeling was created in
the city yesterday by a rumor that
the Fernie coal miners bad again
gone out on a strike. The report
proved to be without foundation,
however. It was based on the fact
that a few men doing development
work in a mine at Morrissey had
quit work because the owners refused
to put the it rn a tonnage basis.
The supreme court sittings which
were to have been held at Greenwood next Monday and Tuesday,
have been cancelled.
A special car carrying 25 mining
investors from Duluth, Minn., who
are coming west to look over the
mining resources of British Columbia, arrived in Spokane yesterday
over the Great Northern. From
Spokane they went to Nelson, B. C.
Joe Ward, an old-timer of tie
Boundary, bought a Great Northern
ticket last Wednesday for Seattle,
where he will be located in future.
Five cars of from thc Quilp mine,
Republic, were delivered at Ihe
Granby smelter today.
Mr. R. Marpole, superintendent
of the western division of the C. P. R.,
passed through Grand Forks today
on his way Midway.
The first anniversary of The Sun
will occur about a week from today,
and birthday presents in the shape
back subscription money will be
thankfully received.
At Knox Presbyterian church
next Sunday, Rev. J. R. Robertson,
B. A., will take for his morning subject, "The One Thing I Do"; evening, "The Biblical Doctrine of
Hell."
The Sun expects to be able to announce the result of the meeting of
the railway committee of the privy
council at Ottawa in next Tuesday's
Issue.
The statement was given out last,
night that the branch power line
from the Granby smelter to the high
tension line of thc Cascade Power!
company would be completed in
t\vo weeks. |
G. C. McGregor wen? up to Nia-!
gara   yesterday  to   do assessment
work on his claim.
It is reported that the Quilp com
pany, of Republic,  has   effected   a j
deal   with   the   Granby smelter to,
treat several hundred tons  of  ore
from that' mine each month. !
The meeting of the Columbia city
council Tuesday evening was short
and unimportant. All the members were present, with the exception of Mayor McCallum, who is
absent from the city. The board of
works was instructed to have the
street leading to the new bridge
cleared 66 feet and graded 16 feet
wide.
William Campbell, of this ' city,
left for Winnipeg yesterday over the
Great Northern.
Pat Hughes, foreman for Stewart
& Welsh, railroad contractors, arrived in the city yesterday from
Spokane, and is stopping at the
Winnipeg.
W. A. Stratton, of the Hot Air
line, left for Tacoma today over the

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 east
ern 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 bestj including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lect dinihg 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 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\>resent 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
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees aud surrouuded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pieturetquesuest and grandeur.
The Columbia 4 Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has Its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
th. Vancouver, Tictora A Eastern Railway oompany, has
located Its depot, freight sheds and yards along th. east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paoifle railway oompany hat large Interests in the oity, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre.
The olimate, taken all the year around, is the best in Canada-part of the summer is rather hot anddry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there is an extent .f
fertile agricultural land, 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 frnlt and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful In the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining Interests areof the first Importance ;to this
country, aud 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 th* eity.
Owing to the fine olimate, the central situation, the
beautlble environments, the bright prospects for fntur*
growth and prosperity, Columbia .'will be an educational
centre, a city of home*, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; and whon finally allied and wedded to her titter city,
will b. the best and largest city in (th. 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
business. This company nas nothing but up-to-date liberal policies to
soil, 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 patrous of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum
is agent at Columbia and Grand

By  Fire  at Fairview—One
Person Killed, Two Fatally Injured.
A telephone message from Fair-
view to Greenwood states that the
Hotel Fairview was completely destroyed by fire at 3 o'clock Wednesday morning. Several people
were fatally injured. Miss Louise
Smith, a school teacher, is missing,
and is probably burned to death.
The fire broke out in the basement
and spread very rapidly. The
guests on the first floor escaped, and
others had to jump from thc burning burning building. Mr. Mathias,
manager of the hotel, is one of those
fatally hurt, and Mrs. Mathias was
badly injured. Word was sent to
Greenwood for medical men and
nurses.
"The school teacher at Fairview
who is reported missing is Miss
Louise Smith, of Enderby. She
passed the examination last summer
and underwent a course at the Normal school, where she obtained a
certificate. She is twenty years of
age. She is described as having
been a very pretty woman with
pleasing manners.
The Hotel Fairview was a fine
structure, erected by the Fairview
Corporation (Messrs. Dier, Davidson and Russell), and was the best
hotel in that part of the interior.
It was a handsome frame building;
was well furnished and contained
over ne hundred rooms.
MINES AND MINING
It is reported that the management of the Quilp mine, at Republic, has contracted to ship 600 tons
of ore monthly to the Granby smelter.
The B. C. mine, in Summit camp,
will hereafter ship its entire output
to the Granby smelter for treatment.
That will be at the rate of 3000
tons monthly.
It is reported that J. F. Hemmen-
way, for the past six years associated with the Old Ironsides and Knob
Hill Mining companies, and the
Granby company, which absorbed
