SUNSET SIGNALS
Geo. Chappie will commence at
once the erection of an addition to
the Odd Fellows' hall. The building will be 20x30 feet. The first-floor
will be used by Mr. Chappie for a
workshop, while the second story
will be partitioned off into four regalia rooms and a large banqueting
room, in which the different lodges
can serve suppers on gala occasions.
The hall, which is already one of
the best in the interior of the
province, both as regards size
and furnishings, will be surpassed
by none when the addition is completed. The Odd Fellows hold a
five years' lease on the hall.
During a controversy on the East
Kootenay coal lands question at the
Pacific hotel this week the disputants became somewhat excited, and
a wager of $200 was made that the
licenses would be issued. J. J.
Mcintosh said he had faith in Premier McBride to that amount, while
J. A. Cairnes took the other end at
even money.
Miss Geneveivc Tilley, of Toronto,
who holds the highest testimonials
from a number of tbe best known
eastern firms as an expert, has been
engaged as stenographer at the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting company.
Mrs. Hector Kelly is confined to
her home by illness.
The Odd Fellows, Knights of
Pythias and Ladies ofthe Maccabees
of this city will hold a union picnic
at Loon on August 12th.
Mrs. F. Schubert, of the Pacific
hotel, is confined to her room by
sickness.
R. A. Brown left for Spokane yesterday on a business trip.
It is now expected that the names
on tho list for the Greenwood electoral district will reach a total of between 600 and 700. There are at
present more than '550 applications
on file at the office of the collector
of votes for the district, and there
will be between 40 and 50 to add
after the sitting of the county court
this week, at which 52 applications
for naturalization will be made.
Then there are still quite a number
of residents scattered through the
district who have not sent their applications to be pluced on the list,
so that an estimate of at least 650
names when the list shall be closed
seems to be a conservative one.
Oscar Sontagh, a prominent smelter man and formerly in charge of
the Le Roi smelter at Northport,
committed suicide in Spokane last
Tuesday by shooting himself. His
body was discovered in a luxurious
bedroom at the Hotel Spokane. He
was about 50 years of age, and was
one of the best known metallurgists
in the west. Domestic troubles and
financial worries are supposed to
have been the cause of the rash act.
A. C. Flumerfelt, a director of thc
Eastern Townships bank and assistant to President S. H. 0 Miner
of the Granby Consolidated, and H.
N. Galer, assistant general manager
of the Granby company, this week
acquired a two-thirds interest in the
Grand Forks Investment & Trust
company. Lloyd A. Manly, the
founder and organizer of the company, will retain a third interest.
The name will be changed on Aug.
20th to that of the British-American
Trust company. The capital will be
very considerably increased/ but the
amount has not yet been determined. It will, .however, be sufficiently large to enable the company to extend its operations to
Manitoba, the Canadian Northwest
and the state of Washington, where
branches will be opened. The new
officers are as follows: President, A.
C. Flumerfelt;- vice-president, Lloyd
A. Manly; managing director, H.N.
Galer. -

Thc above financial report for the half year ending June 30th, 1903,
shows an expenditure of $2,152.76 over the revenue collected during the
half year. But since the annual taxes are pay able in the last half ofthe
year, and the principal improvements for the year have been done during
the first half of the year, it will be seen that by far tbe greater part of the
revenue will be collected during the last half year, and the necessary
expenditure has largely been made during the first half year. This, together with the successful financial manipulation on thc part of the council in effecting the cancellation of $15,000 debentures, will justify the
council in levying a lower rate of taxes than the financial condition of the
city might seem to demand. Neil McCallum,

Hon. Richard McBride has come
and gone. He was gleefully received and revere*htly listened to by
his followers. It is natural to presume that the main object of his
tour-of the interior was to impart a
knowledge of his compaign policy
and start the local leaders off with
the right step. In the Kootenays
and Boundary the coal and oil lands
question is one that will cut an important figure in the now present
political* contest. It must be admitted that the position he takes
thereon is quite plausible, though
it Jacks a great deal of being impregnable. He refuses to act on the
ground that his is not a government
empowered to deal with important
questions touching the interests of
the people; that it is only a makeshift to tide over the interim between
the demise of the late government
and the resurrection of a new government fresh from the hands
of the people. On this pretext Mr.
McBride will let the land question
wobble its Own way, ostensibly, but
privately the campaigners will tell
the locators that Mr. McBride, after
hi1 is confirmed by tbe vote legally
cast, will undoubtedly issue the
licenses. Thc voter who opposes
the issuance of the licenses will be
told that as soon as the people endorse his government he will throw
the present claimants out and give
every one a chance to make a grab
for the lands. This may bo said to
be all surmise and suspicion, but
there has been such an exposure of
corruption and political rottenness
in Victoria that it is difficult to feel
there can be any honor left in any
one who has been mixed up with it.
And, for a fact, is it not about time
to weed out those elements down
there who have so long taken turns
' dcsjitoiling the people of their sacred
heritage?
phalanx in support of their respective candidates.
The turning down of T. J. Hardy
by the Liberals of Greenwood riding for John R. Brown nfay have
been the proper thing to do, but
there are many Liberals in that riding who take the opposite view.
Greenwood sustained Hardy, it is
said, but the outside communities
combined against him.
So many business men have lately
asked us why steps are not being
taken to fill tho aldermanic vacancies, that we have concluded to
propound this question to the city
council.

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 travel ng 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. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair care,
standard and tourist sleepers, a jper-
lect 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.

D. Mansfield, Gen. Agt., Rio Grande

GOOD »,SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the workiind promptness in

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS

The Moonlight group, consisting
of five claims, twelve miles from
Beaverdell, west fork of Kettle river,
is showing up well. Recent development work, has been of a very
satisfactory and encouraging character, and the showing made is a
wonderful one. The lead has been
stripped for a distance of 600 feet,
and proverj to be high-grade ore
with values in copper, gold and silver in the order named. The width
of the ore body is 32 feet. A 15-foot
shaft in the centre of the lead "is in
ore. The owners, Dr. Kingston and
R. F. Petrie, of this city, intend to
resume development work this fall,
with the object of making the Moonlight a shipper as speedily as possible. It is claimed that the ore will
stand a wagon haul to Midway and
freight charges to the smelter. The
property adjoins the iron deposits
controlled by Chas. Matheson, of
Beaverdell. »
The International Coal & Coke
Co., of Blairmore, Alta., made its
first shipment of coal last week,
when one carload was sent to Phoenix. The coal will be used for
operating the steam shovel in the
surface quarries of the Granby mines.
Another carload of coal is enroute to
the Granby smelter. Although work
at the coal mines is only in its initial
stages, about 25 miners are employed, and two carload of coal are
being taken out daily in course of
regular development. The company, which has a capital stock of
$3,000,000, was recently organized
