CommencingTomorrow Passenger Trains Will Run
Into the City.
Tomorrow the regular passenger
trains will run into this city for the
first time over tbe V.„ V. ■& E. Thc
temporary depot erected on Cooper's
ranch a couple of months ago is being moved into the city today. It
will be placed near the site where the
new depot is to be build, and will
be used as a ticket office and waiting
room until that structure is completed. The new passenger depot
will be a handsome structure, and
is a to fitted up with every modern
convenience.
The plans for the freight and passenger depots are now in the city,
and the local contractors are submitting their bids today.
The spur into the station site on
the boundary line between the two
cities was finished at about 5 o'clock
Wednesday evening. The event attracted a large crowd of spectators.
The progress of construction was
mVo watched by F. S. Forest, of
Spokane, superintendent of the
Spokane Falls & Northern system,
and A. Stewart, divisional engineer
of tbe Great Northern at Spokane.
Roth of these gentlemen left for
Rossland the same evening.
In the evening, when thc last rail
had been laid, thc tracklayers were
hospitably entertained by the Columbia city council.' A great deal of
enthusiasm was displayed, especially
after the men had sampled the liquid
refreshments and the substantial
sandwiches provided for the occasion. The entry of the road into
the city was also celebrated, later,
in Columbia by a display of bonfires and fireworks.
It is understood today that work
on the spur into the Granby smelter will be commenced next Monday. The construction will probably occupy four months, and means
the employment of four or live hundred men in this vicinity. At present the work of laying sidetracks
and ballasting is being rushed as
fast as possible.
The unexpected arrival here last
Tuesday of A. H. Hogeland, of St.
Paul, revived the report that the
extension of the line to Phoenix
and Greenwood will be built during
the coming winter, but up to the
•present time nothing official has
been given out on this subject.   Mr.
Hogeland, although not the nominal chief engineer of the Great
Northern, has been virtually performing these duties since the promotion of John F. Stevens to the
general managership of the system.
Mr. Hogeland left here Wednesday
afternoon to inspect the route between this city and Phoenix.
The line to Phoenix has already
been located. An easy grade from
here will be secured by building up
Fourth of July creek.' The difference between the elevation in the
Kettle River valley and Phoenix is
about 8200 feet.    '
A number of spurs have also been
surveyed to the other camps. From
a point near Eholt the line will descend the divide and touch at Greenwood before traversing the valley of
Boundary creek to Midway, where
connectiou will be made with a proposed 12-mile extension of the
W. & G. N. north from Curlew
Wash.

Liquor Licence Act—At the last
session of the provincial legislative
assembly, section 37 of chapter 18
of the statutes of 1900, being the
Liquor Licence Act, was repealed,
and the following substituted ttiere-
for: "No licence under this act
shall be issued or transferred to any
person of tbe Indian race, or to any
person who is not on the list of voters
for the legislature of the province of
British Columbia." All applications for licence renewals for 1903
must be in the hands of the chief
licence inspector before December
1, 1902.
The Manly Cask—The final hearing in the case of John Manly, who
was arrested a little over two weeks
ago charged with complicity in the
burning of the Columbia hotel, took
place yesterday morning in the office of Hay, McCallum & Wright,
Columbia, before Justice G. C. McGregor. The prosecution was unable to produce an important witness, and therefore requested that
the case be withdrawn, which was
done, thus ending the matter. Miller ami Sutton appeared for the defense.

Thk delegates who represented
the twin cities at the meeting of the
railway committee of the privy council did their work well. We think
Messrs. McCallum and Cumings are
entitled to the thanks of the community.

HOCKEY CLUB REORGANIZED
At one of the largest attended
meetings of its kind yet held in this
city, the local hockey club was reorganized on Tuesday evening for
Ihe coming season.
Dr. McDonald, the president, was
called to the chair, and Arthur
Cochrane was chosen secretary of the
meeting. In opening, the president
stated that the meeting had been
primarily called to see what arrangements could be made towards
procuring a rink for the coming
winter and that it seemed to be the
concensus of opinion that the
hockey club should take the initiative. Several feasible schemes were
broached, and a committee was appointed to ascertain what grounds
could be obtained, and the cost of
enclosing the same. In all probability the club will be able to enclose a sufficient space under canvas to make a rink suitable for
hockey, and give its patrons splendid skating.
/ Thc following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: Honorary
president, H. N. Galer; honorary
vice-presidents, Aid. Hammar and
A. B. W. Hodges; president, Dr. K.
C. McDonald; vice-presidents, Geo.
('lark and Wm. Spier; secretary, A.
(). Cochrane; treasurer, C. H. Niles;
captain, Geo. Ewing; executive committee, W. 0. Mitchell, F W.
Grant, H. Jackson, J. M. Holland,
E. Burden.
Although hockey is practically
an unknown sport here, the showing made by the local boys last year
has not been forgotten by their supporters, and the coming season
should see Grand Forks place on
the ice a team that can hold its own
with any in the interior.
The following players are available, from which a strong seven can
be selected: W. O. Mitchell, H.
Jackson, A. McQueen, A. 0. Cochrane,   F.   W. Grant,  C. H. Niles,
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The Columbia Waterw orks—
Six thousand feet of 6-inch pipe and
530 feet of 8-inch, together with all
the hydrants and valves, for the
Columbia waterworks, have arrived
in the city. The work of laying the
8-inch pipe will be commenced next
week, at the corner of Fourth street
and Winnipeg avenue, as soon as
the grading is finished on the Columbia street road. At present the
work will be done by day's labor.
Masonic Banquet—The committee appointed to arrange the details
for the banquet to be given on the
19th inst. by Harmony Lodge, W.
D., A. F. & A. M., has not yet com-
'pleted its labors.
Republic Ore Shipments—Ore
shipments from Republic mines to
the Granby smelter, for the week
ending today, were as follows: Quilp
mine, 328 tons; Black Tail, 56 tons;
Morning Glory, 28 tons; total for
week, 412; total to date, shipped to
all smelters, 2304 tons.
Fife is Booming—H. S. Turner,
formerly of The Sun, but now located at Fife, was in the city today
between trains. He says times are
good at that place. Between 50
and 60 men are employed in the
limestone quarry there getting out
rock for the Trail smelter, which
uses it for a flux. A large hotel for
the accommodation of these workmen is also in course of erection.
Mayor McCallum and Charles
Cumings, the delegates who represented the cities of Columbia and
Grand Forks before the meeting of
the railway committee of the privy
council, returned home Tuesday.
As their mission was very successful, they were enthusiastically welcome dback. They report having had
a stubborn fight to get the committee to grant the V., V. & E. the right
to cross the Hot Air and C. P. R.
tracks. Even after" this privilege
had been given, the solicitors for
the opposition influenced the eonij
niittee to insert a clause iii the order
granting the permission requiring
the V., V. & E. to put in an interlocking crossing. To do this would
have required at least six months'
time, and it is to credit of the delegates that they effected a satisfactory compromise on this clause.
The first freight that came in
over the V., V. & E. depot spur was
a carload of mains for the CO'
lumbia waterworks.
N. McLellan went to Colville,
Wash., today on a business trip.
Geo. Clark and James Anderson,
who have been spending a three
months' vacation visiting old and
familiar scenes in the east, returned
to .Grand Forks ovei the Great
Northern Tuesday  evening.   They
report having had an enjoyable
journey, and say that times are
good in Ontario.
Aid. Robert Wasson has been confined to his home by sickness during the past week.
Miss Ethel Hay has just recovered

Dr. Northrop has been shut up

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-
em points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and Avesi, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these-trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lect dining ear service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is. to look after the
comfort of bis guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions*

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 800 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and w 11 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 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 Canadian Paclfl. 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 I an-
ada-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 land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apple., plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Moildtng material is plentiful In the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and Hon. 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 Coliimbiu. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountain!

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 $200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum

COLUMBIA CITY COUNCIL
The Columbia city council met
Tuesday evening. Mayor McCallum
presided, and all the aldermen were
present except Wasson, who is confined to his home by sickness.
The following bills were ordered
paid: C. A. Stoess, $65; E. La-
grondeur, $2.
A petition was read from 0 Cusson and others, praying to have the
work of laying the water mains
commence at once, and to have it
done by day work.
On motion of Aid. Cusson, seconded by Aid. Lagimodiere, a resolution was passed naming Mayor
McCallum and Aid. Disney as a
committee to interview the Grand
Forks council in reference to have a
sidewald laid on Winnipeg avenue
to connect with thc two cities.
On motion of Aid. Cusson, seconded by Aid. Lagimodiere, the
water and light committee was instructed to have 500 feet of 8-inch
water pipe laid by day's work as
soon as the grading on Columbia
street is finished.
.     THE I. 0. F.
The Independent Order of Foresters are inaugurating a vigorous winter campaign, and for the months
of November, December and January are remitting to new members
the registration and certificate fees,
which applicants usually have to
pay upon joining. The order has
made wonderful strides during the
year, and will add to its membership many thousand during the
next three months.
Its membership roll how contains
a good deal over 200,000 of insured
or beneficiary members. Its accumulated funds reach to almost
$6,000,000; and these funds are increasing at the rate of three-qaar-
ters of a million dollars a year, notwithstanding that the order pays out
$500 every working hour of the
year to widows and orphans. A record of over $12,000,000 already paid
promptly on death claims stands to
its credit. The I. 0. F. is undoubtedly a great and progressive institution. Thc report upon its investments, made by a committee composed of able and independent
brethren at the Supreme Court
meeting in Los Angeles, stated that
in all the investments of its funds
the Supreme Executive had never
lost a dollar. This is certainly a
Unique experience.
C. H. E. Rea, A.LA., F.K.A.S.,
thc actuary of thc order, recently
stated in regard to it: "After exhaustive tests I have failed to find
a weak spot in its structure."
We congratulate thc order and its
supreme chief ranger upon their
work.
Cut to Pieces
BUT STILL LIVING
We may be slow in Columbia, but we get there
all the same; and whilst we do not sell for cash
