Bv Provincial Policeman I, A.
Dinsmore Yesterday on a
Crown Warrant.
\ A big sensation was created in the
city yesterday afternoon by the arrest of John L. Manly, president
of the Yale Hotel company and
formerly chief engineer of the Hot
Air road. The warrant, which came
from the crown, was served at about
2 o'clock by Provincial Policeman
I. A. Dinsmore at the Yale hotel,
and the charge is that of complicity
in the burning of the Columibia
hotel some three'yeais ago.
The accused was immediately
brought to Columbia, where a pn -
liminary hearing was held to held to
decide whether or not to accept bai1.
The hearing took place before Justices G. C. McGregor and J. "TT
Henderson, E. Miller appearing for
the accused. Mr. Miller, in making his plea in favor of granting
his client bail, took as his basis, the
advanced age and bad health of Mr.
Manly, and called on Dr. Westwood
to testify in regard to the prisoner's
health. The doctor, being sworn,
stated that the health of the accused was very poor, indeed, and
that a'iy sudden shock might
be attended by serious consequences.
The two justices could not agree.
Mr. Henderson thought the prisoner should be allowed to give bail,
while Mr. McGregor held out for
confinement. A third justice in
the person of E. Spraggett was then
called in, who cast the deciding vote
in favor of bail.
Bail was finally fixed at $15,000,
which was given by the accused and
his three brothers, as follows: W.
K. 0. Manly, $5000; A. Manly and
.1. Manly, $2500 each; John Manly,
$5000. t
The preliminary trial was set for
one week from today, and will be
held before a justices' benchin the
offices of Hay, McCallum & Wright,
Columbia.
The Columbia hotel was burned
on the 19th day of July, 1899, at 1
o'clock in,the morning. The man,
Cameron, who applied the match, is
now serving a seven years' sentence
in the provincial penitentiary. He
is supposed to have had two accomplices. The hotel was filled
with women and children at thc
time of the fire, but luckily   all   es
caped. It could have been burned
two weeks previously with not a
soul in the house.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN

Chas. Peterson, of the Square
hotel, has returned from his trip to
Princeton. • He says that the people
of the Similkameen country have
gained the opinion that the city, of
Grand Forks is responsible for the
blocking of the V., V. & E., and
that the feeling there against this
city is very strong.
The Knox Presbyterian chutch
congregation has decided not to
move the church at present, but to
build the manse on the vacant lot by
the chrch.
The contract for building a bridge
across the Kettle river at Nelson,
Wash., has been awarded to R.

that has been systematically worked
for several years. The ore is said
to run high in copper and gold,
large bodies averaging $70 per ton.
On the dump are many thousands
of tons awaiting treatment at the
new mill, besides much ore for smelter treatment. One indication of
the value of thc property is the fact
that the owners for the last two
years or more have bean buying up

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21,   1902.
The representatives sent to Ottawa to represent Grand Forks and
Columbia at the meeting of the
railway committee of the privy
council is as strong a delegation as possibly could have been
sent. Both Mayor McCallum and
Mr. Cumings are thoroughly acquainted 'with the cause they go to
champion, and both are hard fighters, and if they fail to accomplish
#the object sought, the people can
rest assured that it was not because
they did not exhaust every honorable endeavor within their power.
letter reads: "We represent client^!
who wish to enter into an agreement with the city for the return of
the debentures issued under by-law
No. 67. Our clients think they
can procure the return of these debentures and deliver them to the
city cancelled for the sum of 81000.
Should you consider this proposition favorably please pass the endorsed resolution and advise us that
you have done so.'' The communication appeal's to be a Chinese puzzlers no one seems to be able to give
a plausible explanation as to the
motives of its authors. It was discussed at length. Aid. Donaldson
expressed the his opinion by saying
that he did not feel like entering
into a speculation in the city's debentures, and this appeared to be
the sentiment of the rest of the council. The matter was finally disposed of by the passage of a resolution instructing the city clerk to inform Messrs. McDonald & Whiteside
that the council had the matter under consideration.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
The Grand Forks city council
held a short session last night, at
which nothing but routine business
was transacted.
Those present were Aid. Donaldson, Matheson, Hammar, Gaw and
Acting Mayor Sheads, who occupied
the chair.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting, and thc special meeting
last Friday, had baen read and ap-
yroved, Mr. Sheads made a report,
stating that Manager Galer, of the
Granby smelter, had given positive
assurances that no more slag would
lie dumped in the river.
A communication from the Eastern Townships was read. It pointed
out the fact that as the corporation's
business in tnis city is transacted
with that bank, the place where
city debenture coupons are made
payable shou'd be changed to the
Eastern Townships bank, Montreal,
in order to facilitate business transactions and lessen the chance of confusion. They coupons are at present payable at the Imperial Bank of
Canada, Montreal. The council
wits in doubts as to whether there
would be any expense attached to
the change or not, and in order to
nain information on this point final
action in the matter Was, on motion
of Aid. Hammar, postponed for one
week. 5
The following bills were ordered
paid: Fire calls, 84; Geo. Taylor,
878; Joe Taylor, 815; J. I. Gill,
821; Telephone Co., 812; T. A.
Kennion, 815; Canadian Engine
Co., 8135;'Freight, 831.73; P. Mc-
Ray, 866.50.
The communication from McDonald & Whiteside, laid over from
last week's meeting, in regard to the
V., V. & V. debentures, was then
taken   up for consideration.    The
Water Commissioner Sam Mc-
Ormond, of Eholt, has just completed the laying of water pipe to a
number of residences and business
houses in that town. Mr. McOr-
mond owns the waterworks of Eholt,
and now has a nice little income
from this source. He started it
three years ago with the town. The
water is supplied from a nice spring
in the neighborhood of the town,
which he says will supply 1000
people. Mr. McOrmond is a genius himself. He runs the hoist
at the B. C. mine nights, and
works digging the ditches and laying pipes in the daytime, doing all
his own plumbing. He is very
popular in and around town, and is
likely to be the next mayor of
Eholt.
John Hays Hammond, the famous
English mining expert, is expected
to visit the Steinwinder group, in
Fairview camp, in behalf of the
English syndicate that recently obtained an option on the group at
8800,000. The deal will net shareholders 23 cents per share.
At the meeting of the Greenwood
Typographical Union No. 358, in
The Evening Sun office, last Sunday, W. B. Willcox of the Phoenix
Pioneer, was elected vice-president,
vice E. 1). Hall, resigned. A communication was also read from the
trades and labor council of Toronto
drawing attention to the fact that the
Gurney Foundry Co., manufacturers
of Oxford stoves and ranges, had
locked out its union employes.
Arrangements are being made by
the ladies of Knox Presbyterian
church for a ' 'musical anniversary
social," on Monday, November 3d,
that date being the third anni ver-
sary since the congregation of Knox
church was organized. The event
will be fittingly celebrated this year.
The first annual ball of the
Knights of Pythias, in the Biden
opera house next Friday evening
will be an elaborate social event.
The arrangements have all been
been completed. The committee
has been successful in arranging for
first-class music.
A. B. W. Hodges, superintendent
of the Granby smelter, inspected
several of the mines at Republic last
week.
Mrs. Sarah Sucksmith last week
received a cheque for 83000 from
the Grand Forks Investment 6? Loan
company, as agents for the Mutual
Life Insurance company of New
York, in settlement of claim for
death of her late husband.
Mrs. W. E. McDaniels and son
returned last Friday from a ten
weeks' visit with friends in Whatcom, Wash.
E. A. Rainey has been appointed
Dominion fruit inspecter for this
district.

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 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
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 800 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, aud 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.
jA   '
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 or bright, sparkling water,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, whreh was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
tha Vancouver, Viotora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paciflo 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 Canada—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 ml
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 fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful In the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brlok 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 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—tbe most modern
and perfect plant of tbe kind in America—employing hundreds of men, Is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautlble environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia .'will be an edueational
oentre, a city of homes, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister eity,
will be the best and largest city In Ithe Interior.       (

bond after visiting the group in
company with the locators. During
their stay enough development work
was'done on the property to convince Mr. Moran of the permanence
and richness of .the big surface showing. The ledge, which can easily
be traced 500 feet, was stripped in
in three places. It varies from ten
inches to three feet in width. The
ore is galena carrying grey copper,
the fissure vein cross-cutting a formation of porphyry and syenite. An
assay of ore extracted on a previous
visit gave 590 oz. silver and 15 per
cent copper per ton, and 51 oz. silver and 51 per cent lead per ton respectively. The group is situated on
the North Fork divide and within
four miles of the water-shed of the
west fork of the Kettle river. The
distance thgrefrom to the divide between the North Fork valley and
Fire valley is about ^twelve miles.
The ascent is gradual and two or
three low passes were discovered.
According to Republic advices,
indications at present point to a resumption among the mini's of that
camp in the near future. The
Granby smelter recently sent a rush
o.'tler to the Spokane offices of the
company for 200 tons of Black Tail
ore. There being no ore brokeni n th's
property seady for shipment, San
Poil ore will lie taken instead, and
four men have oeen put to work
loading that quantity. A much
larger quantity was broken down in
the San Poil as a result of recent
operations. At the Quilp a short
trestle is being build leading from
the shaft house to the railway spur,
and it is understood that a shipment
of about 500 tons will be sent out
soon. The Great Northern spur to
to the Quilp has been graded, but
the track was not laid. It is learned
from reliable authority that the
Granby smelter has signified its intention of taking 250 tons per day
from Republic camp, when the supply of coke and power is sufficient
to warrant operating the plant to
its full capacity.
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

the custom of credit to those who deserve it.
