Bachelors'  and  Benedicts'
Ball Was a Grand Social
Success.
The bachelors' and benedicts' " at
home," in Biden's opera house last
? Tuesday night, was one of the most
enjoyable dances ever held in Grand
Forks. The best of music, a good
&oor, thorough management, a delightful supper, all combined to make
it pre-eminently succestful. About
60 couples joined in the graud march
that opened the dance at 9:30, and
from then until nearly i a. m. the
ball was kept rolling—vigorously.
The hall was well lighted and decorated, and the severe black and white
of the genlemen's attire only helped
to show to greater advantage the
beauty of both the ladies and their
toilets. So many were there that it
is impossible to give qarticulars.
• Great credit is due to those ladies
and gentlemen who arranged the details, and they can flatter themselves
that if in the future any aspire to
. beat them they will have hard work
to perform.
For the arrangement of the hall
and supqer table, and also for the supper itself, the ladies deserve great
credit; also the program committee—
whoever they may have Been—succeeded in giving a very nice arrangement of dances. The waltz has been,
and, we venture to think, always will
be, the round dance, and the lancers
is, of course, the square dance. Both
were given their .right place. One or
two were heard to express the wish
that another Jersey and French
minuet had been given in the second
|>art, but then one cannot have every-
thiug in one night that may be desired. Mr. O'Driscoll must not lie
forgotten. He more thon justified
the judgment of those who placed him
in charge of the floor. And what
shall be said of the music? If Mr.
und Mrs. Murray do nothing more
for the lovers of good dancing in this
city than have been the means of introducing the Galliher orchestra to us,
they certainly have done their share.
It was perfect, and all lovers of good
music will join in a hearty vote of
thanks to the members of the orches-
trr for the way in which they rendered that most exquisite selection
from "The Bohemian Girl." It is such
an old, old favorite, but when rendered as it was Tuesday night, after
not having been heard for yeass by
many of us, it  simply brought back
such a flow of memories as were well-
nigh overpowering. With "Home,
Sweet Home" and "Auld Lang
Syne" still souning in The Sun reporter's ears, he wended his way
homeward, and he felt like exclaiming, "Them's my sentiments," when
he overheard the remark: "Could not
arrangements be made to have another such dance immediately after
Easter?"   Who says yes?
The lady patronesses were: Mrs.
Wm. Spier, Mrs. M. Burrell, Mrs.
Averill, Mrs. G-f A. Fraser, Mrs. F.
M. Kerby, Mrs. Joseph L. Manly,
Mrs. B. Lequime.

If the original "Peck's Bad Boy"
was any worse than the company
which presented that play at Biden's
opera house on Wednesday night,
no punishment would have been too
grear for him, for the organization
was the worst that ever happened in
Grand Forks, and many of the audience didn't wait to see the final drop
of the curtain.

Proposition  to Develop
Electricity on the Columbia River.
Jay P. Graves, vice president of
the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power company, is applying to the United States congress
for a bill empowering him to construct a dam on the Columbia river
at Kettle Falls, Wash., near Marcus. The dam is to develop electrical power to be used for industrial
purposes. His new proposition is
entirely independent of the Granby
company.
Discussing the matter now before
congress Mr. Graves says:
"What are our plans? Well, we
intend to construct a dam in the
Columbia river at Kettle Falls for
the'g'eneration of electricity, which
we propose to sell to persons and
companies engaged in the mining
and smeltinn industries in that section. The, region is a very rich one,
and with cheap power will develop
into a wonderfully productive territory.
"There is enough water power at
these falls to provide electricity to
meet the needs of all the industries
in the state, if it could be brought
within their reach. The Columbia
contains an immense of water, many
times as much as the Spokane river.
We shall not need more than a fraction of the stream for many years, if
ever. It is our plan to construct
only a small dam on one side of the
river, between the west bank and an
island. This will give us water for
a canal leading to the proposed
plant.
' 'The cost of electricity at this
point will be very low. Of course,
if we intended to dam the entire
river and develop all the power to
be derived from the stream the cost
would be greater per horsepower
than to generate a comparative small
amount of power. The fall in the
stream is 37£ feet, and this will enable us to generate 25,000 horsepower by such a simple dam as I
have described, without damming
the whole stream or adding anything to the fall. The bill introduced at Washington, however, does
not limit the uses to be made of the
stream."
Next Monday evening the annual
meeting of the Knox Presbyterian
church congregation will be held.
Reporte for the past year will be
submitted from the different departments of the congregation—session,
board of managers, the Ladies' Aid
society, the Westminster Guild, and
the Sabbath school. A splendid
musical and literary program will be
rendered by the best taledt of the
congregation. Refreshments will be
served by he Ladies'. Aid society.
VAHEY-ADDISON.

the home of the bride's mother, a
pretty wedding was solemnized, when
Rev. J. F. Betts united in holy
matrimony C. K. Nahey and Miss
Hilda M. Addison, daughter of thc
late Jas. Addison. The groom is
the manager of the manager of the
People's Supply company, and is a
rising young business man. The
bride, who is a charming young
lady, was very prettily gowned.
The wedding was a private one, and
only a few friends and relatives of
the interested parties witnessed the
ceremony. Many handsome and
costly presents were received by the
young couple. The numerous friends
of Mr. and Mrs. Vahey wish them a
happy and prosperous journey
through life.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Under the chaperonage of W. H.
Covert, the members of the Galliher
orchestra, of Spokane, who supplied
the music at the Benedicts' ball,
visited the Granby smelter Tuesday
night, and were much interested in
the many labor-saving devices at the
big reduction works.
With the idea of overcoming ihe
danger of fires occurring frorii defective flues, which probably started
the recent power eouse fire, the
smelter management are replacing
some of the more or less dangerous
fireplaces with substantial brick
chimneys.
A rejiort from Republic says that

FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 1903
The green-cloth gentry of thc city
are taking their defeat in the recent
election very ungracefully, to say the
least. Many umors of boycots and
retaliatory measures against the city
and merchants who cast their influence on the side of reform are afloat.
These men, it is claimed, are venting their spleen against two citizens—managers of large industrial
and commercial interests—for taking an active part in the campaign,
as they had a perfect right to do as
householders and British subjects ;
but because they did so they are being persecuted by these gamesters,
who produce notning, add no wealth
to the community, but live by their
wits and the gullibility of the
wage workers. It is alleged
that they have visited a number of business houses, advising the proprietors that if they persisted in patronizing the two firms
mentioned they will by boycotted.
Furthermore, it is said that they
have sent a petition to headquarters of these firms asking for the
removal of the two managers. If
all these stories are truej and w!e
have no reason to doubt the veracity
of our informants, it puts the gambling element in this city in a bad
light—showing that they are interfering where they have no right to interfere, and the feeling against them
and their calling entertained by all
law-abiding citizens will be intensified
A majority of the electors of Grand
Forks have said that they want the
laws against gambling enforced, and
in Grand Forks, as in all other parts
ofthe world under British rule, the
will of the majority is supreme.
If the Mayor gets the backing he
is entitled to on his good intentions,
a lot of good can be accomplished
during the coming year. The.prompt
disposal of thc city's business on
business principles, while a contrast
to the policy pursued by former
councils, will receive the hearty
cndorsatfon of the citizens at large,
who are the real parties interested,
as they are the people who have to
pay the bills.
It's a short shift indeed that a new
rumor of some sort isn't turned loose
at the Granby smelter, of which
about one in every hundred materializes. The very latest is that besides adding two furnaces to the
ground reserved for them, six new
ones are to be erected to the south of
thc converter building, and that before the close of 1903 the Granby
smelter will have a row-of twelve
furnaces in operation.
This Sunday closing and anti-
gambling movement now in progress threatens to temporarily divide
the city into two factions, as did the
Sunday ball games agitation about
three years ago.
If all tee schemes now mentioned
for erecting smelters and electric
power plants and building railways
are successfully carried out, this particular section of British Columbia
and the State of- Washington will
soon be a veritable hive of industrial
activity.      	
The coming year will be. the great
est railrord buildfng period in the
history of (North America. The C. P.
R. will build into Spokane, and, with
the Great Northern, will open up a
large territory in British Columbia ;
thc Grand Trunk railway will build
a transcontinental line through Canada from Toronto to the Pacific coast;
the Canada Northern is at work on
its line across the continent; Rock
Island will run on through to the
Gulf of Mexico ; Gould interests will
push on to the Pacific coast; the
Wabash will continue to the Atlantic ocean, and many other railways
are under way.

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 arid
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 190^ 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 aM Works with the
Almanac is $1.00 a year. Write to
Word and Works Publishing Co.,
2201 Locust Street, St. Louiei, Mo.,
and prove to yourself their great
value.
The Evening Sun job department
is the best equipped in the Boundary for printing neat pamphlets

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
/and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortablo ride through thc
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 pass'
ing through Stilt' 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 live
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is the best, Including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect (lining car service, nnd 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.
