SUNSET SIGNALS
An amusing sight was witnessed
a few days ago, when a saddled and
bridled horse contentedly trotted
along the street, while its angry
owner trudged along through the
deep snow vainly endeavoring to
overtake it. But a far more amusing sight is ,the bridled and saddled
candidate for mayor who is now
rum ing for the vest-pocket election,
which will also prove a vain effort.
Considerable suffering has been
caused by the false report sent out
by a local paper a couple of weeks
ago that when the Granby smelter
commenced running full blast the
following week there would be a
scarcity of men. Many laboring
men from outside pointscrowded in,
and several of them succeeded in
getting jobs at the smelter for which
men with families .in Grand Forks
have waited for months past. Those
who were unsuccessful, however, and
they were numerous, have found
themselves stranded, and have been
forced to exist through the kindness
of smelter employes. If the paper
mentioned would confine itself to
publishing the news as it is, it would
prove of more material benefit to the
community than it has in the past.
After having been so long engaged in
exaggerating the grand things in
connection with the Hot Air railway, it finds itself unable to keep
its feet in the path of truth.
S. S. Fowler, manager of the Cascade Water Power & Light company,
speaking about the Begley fatality,
is reported to have said that it was
undoubtedly caused by induction.
At the moment that the unfortnnate
man grasped the private telephone
wire, the power was just being restarted, the Granby mines having'
previously asked for a few minutes
shut off to adjust some of their machinery, and in starting up tiie plant,
before it is running in perfect unison, the power is always very irregular for a moment or so, and for
this reason the telephone became
charged by induction from the
power cable. Begley, who was
working around the rswitchboard,
stepped into a small well in the Moor,
and to save himself from falling,
grasped the wire and received what
proved to be a fatal shock. The
wire, pulled out of shape by Begley,
shows just whaj he did. There was
no direct contact, Mr. Fowler said,
of the power cable and the company's private telephone wire, and
induction is the only reasonable explanation. f
The meeting of the Grand Forks
city council last evening was a brief
affair. Mayor Holland presided
and all the councilmen were present.
The usual number of bills were ordered paid. On motion of Aid.
Donaldson, seconded by Aid. Matheson, a resolution was passed instructing the health officers to inspect the milk products from the
various dairies being sold in the city.
The city clerk was ordered to instruct the chief of police to impound
a couple of horses and a burro now
running at large. A short discussion
followed relative to insurance of city
property, but nothing was done.
Manager McKay, of the Boundary
Iron Works, this city, was in Greenwood last week looking after business interests. The foundry has
enough orders booked ahead to keep
it going for three months, which,
with the custom work from the
Granby smelter and other sources,
assures a continued run for some
time. .
The Grand Forks Hockey club is
endeavoring to arrange a match game
for Christinas day with either the
/Republic or Pnoenix club.
George Nye visited in Republic
yesterday.
Choctaw Appreciation — Being
en route from Little Rock, Ark., to
Wichita, Kan., last season, "Other
People's Money" company found it
desirable to fill an open date in the
booming town of South McAlester,
Indian Territory. Conspicuous in
the large audience present was a
goodly-sized audience of Choctaw
Indians, who bad ridden nearly 40
miles overland via pony to attend
the performance. They were gaily
attired in full complement of buckskin and feather, and added a high
touch of color to the large assemblage. They were out from the
reservation for a holiday; occupied
thc best seat*; saw to it that the boy
who sold chewing candy in the theater did a thriving business. The
Indians afforded more amusement
to the members of thc company
than thc latter did them. Stolidly
they sat through the performance,
and neither by sound nor change of
expression-did they show any appreciation of the performance until
during fhe last act, when Dainty
May Sargent made her entrance, attired in a superb gown almost entirely covered with shining silver
spangles. The hundreds of brilliant
electric! tights on the stage cast their
effulgent rays on the attractive little
women, and it was then that the
gathering of real Americans manifested that sweet ljfe was still theirs,
for Miss Sargent's dazzling gown,
coupled with her most charming
graces, brought forth a chorus of
guttural grunts and at once caused
the Indians to set their stamp of approval on the performance. Miss
Sargent and her mctopolitan company will be wen here Thursday
night, December 18, at the Biden
opera house.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 16, 1902
In a column editorial in last Saturday's issue of the Neivs-Gazette we
learn that whatJGrand Forks wants
for its next mayor is "a man who is
true to himself." That may be the
exact description of our present
mayor; but what the taxpayers of
Grand Forks and Columbia require
in their coming mayor is a man who
is true to his pledges and to his position. The man's personalginterests
should not be the only things
boosted.
Judas had a plan for a new party.
The result is recorded in Matthew,
xxvii, 5: "Judas went and hanged
hiniS3lf." Ever since that day
organizers of new parties have hanged
themselyes—politically.
The C. P. R. has at present 29-,
000 employes on its payroll. The
number will be increased to 35,000,
as the western section is gradually
being enlarged.
None of the politicians appear to
be anxious to trust' their necks in
Mayor Holland's Noose-Gazette.
Japan cxcluldes British subjects
from the Japanese Klondike. When
British Columbia wants to exclude
the Japs, Ottawa, the C. P. R. and
Chamberlain howl about imperial
interests.
KETTLE RIVER DISTRICT
In speaking of the new mining
district at the head of Kettle river,
the Rossland Miner says:
"The discovery during the past two
years of comparatively high-grade
free milling gold ore near the headwaters of Kettle river has aroused
attention of eastern capitalists, who
are sending out mining engineers
and others versed in mineralogy to
ascertain whether the country is as
rich as reported.
"The country about the headwaters
of Kettle river is practically a new
country, not having been thoroughly prospected up to within the past
few years. In conseqnence transportation facilities are very meagre.
The belt, however, is said to be very
rich. Free milling gold and silver-
lead ores predominate, although it
instated that discoveries of other
valuable minerals have been made
from time to time."
The metal bearing districts constantly being discovered in the north
west cannot fail but impress one
with the wonderful future ahead of
this western country. Providence
has stored its metal wealth in prodigal abundance throughout the length
and breadth of this magnificent land
and the energy of the race bids fair
to make the most of what providence has so bountifully bestowed.
One really does not need a prophetic vision to foresee the future
asapplied to mining. Common
sense, backed by a reasonable investigation of the country's resources, is all that is needed to impress the fact of coming greatness
upon every mind.—Rrpublic Standard.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
A conservative estimate places
the total shipment of ore from Republic during the past sixty days at
3000 tons. This does not include
the ore shipped from the California
mine, which was nearly 500 tons.
An inquest on the body of the late
Thomas Begley was held in Coroner
Westwood's office yesterday. On
account of lack of testimony the,
jury did not return a verdict, and
the case was adjourned,until tonight,

dued. ,-■   ■
The skating rink is being flooded

evening, and that one of the furnaces which were allowed to go cold
at the Granby smelter last week will
be blown in tomorrow.
Chief Electrician. Lane, of the
Granby smelter, and staff have been
busy this week raising the pole line
between the power house and the
transformer building. The dumping of slag along the line necessitated
a raise of about twenty feet.
Colin McKinnon, a mining expert, left today for Jerome, Ariz.,

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
is agent at Columbia and Grand
Forks.

ELECTRICIAN
PACIFIC HOTEL, COLUMBIA, B. C. 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 $1.00 a year. Write to
Word and Works Publishing Co.,
2201 Locust Street, St. Louis, Mo.,
and prove to yourself their great
value.

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 ofthe World,"
the only transcontinental line pass-
i ng 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 cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
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.

COLUMBIA
CITY OF BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENTS,
\.,T HFUL CLIMATE AND BOUNTIFUL
RESOURCES-SPLENDID ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND WATERWORKS SYSTEMS-THE
RAILWAY CENTRE OF SOUTHEASTERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The City of Columbia la 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 Vanoouver.
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 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.
J»
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 oharming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, whioh was .onstruoted
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Tancouver, Vlotora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east Una
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paolfle railway oompany has large Interests in the city, having selected the site on account of tha 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 aud dry, but the rest of
the year Is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there Is au extent ef
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 fmit aud vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
llulldiug material is plentiful In the district. Lumber can
he 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, and will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout Ihe mountains
adjacent to the city, und what were mere prospects a short
time since are now lurge paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter -the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind lu America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
heautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia *wlll be an educational
centre, a city 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    tie ii tiller. Square Hotel
