Thc plant has been gradually increased during the past two c'ay8,

In   round   rigureja,   thex Cascad

The (laih* • treatment ofv.ore now

Just what tne Granby plant at
present means to Grand Forks may
be more fully appreciated when it is
stated that there are now about 225
men employedat its works here—a;
monthly payroll of $25,000. Just
what it will mean to the city in the
near future, when its operations shall
have been very, very considerably
expanded, is a matter which will
suprise even the most sanguine and
which -will iriake Grand Forks a
smelting center equal.to any on the
continent.
. The Granby eompany merits the
success it is achieving as the pioneer
and most progressive mining and
reduction company in this highly-
favored Boundary country..

FRIDAY,   DECEMBER 5, 1902
The Grand Forks council acted
very hastily in aecepting Mr. Cuming's proposition for the extension
of Bridge street and a snbway under
the C. P. R. track. Every ratepayer
would like to see this work done, but
not at Mr. Cumings' figures. They
are entirely too high. Besides, the
city has not the ready cash at pres-
qnt with which to purchase the right
of way for the extension of Bridge
street. The railway bonds and interest would amount to about $30,-
000, and the right of way would
probably swell this sum to 140,000.
In addition to this, Mr. Cumings
also wamt8 a receipt for $750 back
taxes. It is safe to say that the
work, before completed, Would cost
between $40,000 and $50,000. This
is unreasonable. It should be done
for lees than one-third of that
amount.
It is understood that Mayor
Holland was too tired to preside ai
the last regular session of the city
council. Further, it is also well
understood that everyone else in
Grand Forks is more tired than
Tracy is of the way he has not attended to his mayoralty duties during the past year.
COAST-KOOTENAY ROAD.
After Hon. A. G. Blair, minister of railways and canals in the
Dominion government, had completed his tour of investigation in
the west, he announced that he had
substantial reasons for the belief that
the V., V. & E. railway would be
completed to this coast without a
cent of assistance being asked from
the federal or provincial government*,, says the Victoria Times. We
understand that further opposition
at Ottawa to the projects of Hill
will be without effect. The Grand
Trunk and the Canadian Pacific
railways cross and recross the border between the United States and
Canada in the provinces to the east
in response to the apparent demands of business. A number of
American lines exercise the same
privilege. What sufficient reason
can be put forward for denying to
the people of British Columbia advantages that are accorded to all the
other principal provinces of the Dominion? It is said that Mr. Hill is
a spoiler who would denude this
province of its wealth for the benefit of his fellow-countrymen.   The
Great Northern president is a business man. When he asks capitalists
to put their money in an undertaking
he practically gives his guarantee as a business man that
that undertaking will be permanent.
Would the enterprise be permanent
if it should be carried on witu the
sole object of impoverishing the
region it traversed? The owners of
the mines which are non-producers
because there are no transportation
facilities to enable them to put their
ores on the market or lay them
down at the smelters are not troubled in mind about the designs of
Mr. Hill. They know it will be to
their profit if a line of railway be
built through the rich mineral territory lying along the boundary, and
they are willing to take the chances
of the company fixing the charges
on such a basis as will permit of the
profitable operation of their prop-
ties. If difficulties arise in the future about transportation charges or
the diversion of trade which properly belongs to Canada to foreign channels, such difficulties can be met by
the local legislature and the Dominion parliament, which have not yet
been at a loss when such a crisis has
arisen. The experiment is worth
trying, at all events, as it will not
cost the people of Canada a cent.
In that respect it is unique as a railway "proposition." When President Hill gets his line in running
order his shareholders will look to
him for dividends, and he can only
earn dividends by fixing rates which
Will allow a profit to his patrons as
well as to himself. We hope when
"patriots" wave the old flag in opposition to this project, therefore, as
they are sure to do, our legislators
and the masters of our legislators—
the people—will take a common
sense, business view of the matter,
and refuse io be moved by such
nonsense.
It is announced that Mayor McCallum, of Columbia, B. C, who
went to Ottawa in connection with
V., V. & E. matters, has an assurance from Mr. Hill that the road
will be run through to the coast with
as little delay as possible. Supplementing this assurance is a dispatch
from Greenwood reporting that a
party of Great Northern surveyors
will commence work immediately.
Preliminary surveys of the line from
Curlew to Midway have already
been made. The road will follow
th^line of least physical resistance
and tap all regions of promise. That
is what is necessary, what miners
have been agitating for, and what
they have been denied for no adequate reason we have yet heard of.
The line will act upon the territory
it will serve like an irrigating stream
in a parched country. We hope it
will be pushed through with the energy for which Mr. Hill is noted and
which has had such a stimulating
effect upon the state of Washington.
The question of terminals is of small
impo.tance compared with the urgent necessity for transportation facilities for the locked-up southern
interior.
COLUMBIA CITY COUNCIL
The Columbia city council met
Tuesday evening, Mayor McCallum
presiding. All the aldeemen were
present except Mcintosh.
The following bills were ordered
paid: Hunter-Kendrick Company,
$27.80; Evening Sun, $3.
The following proposition was received from Chas. Cumings:
To the Mayor and Aldermen of tiie City
of Columbia :
Gentlemen—I make you the following offer:
Upon you acquiring possession
of the right of way to a street which
will form an extension of Bridge
street west to a connection with
Government nvenue, Columbia, according to the map oi C. Stoess, P.
L. S., now in yourf possession, I
will grade such extension of Bridge
street according to the profile of said
map, and surface such extention
with one foot of gravel; furthermore,
I will construct a subway under the
C. P. R. track at the end of Winnipeg avenue 20 feet wide and 12 feet
high and connect Winnipeg avenue
with such subway, upon the following terms:
1. That you deliver to me whatever bonds and money may be returned to the city by the V., V. &
E. Ry. & N. Co. may subscribe towards the construction of the subway and connections.
2. That you give me the timber
now in the Winnipeg avenue bridge
to use in the construction of and
connections to such subway;
Provided, only, that if your honorable body accepts this offer, I am
to be allowed 40 days in which to
perfect my arrangements for undertaking the above works, and if I
find that in the said 40 days that I
am unable to finance the said undertaking, I shall withdraw from
the contract by notifying your honorable body, or its successors, that I
so withdraw, in which event I shall
be free from damages. If the city
does not acquire the right of way
this offer is null and void.
After some discussion, the matt r
was referred to the next regular
meeting.
An adjourned meeting of the
Grand Forks city council was helu
last Tuesday afternoon at 3 o' cloot
to consider a proposition from Mr.
Cumings similar to the above, trie
only difference being that in addition
to the railway bonds and all moiey
which might be subscribed, Mi.
Cumings also wanted a receipt for
$750 of back taxes for doiig the
work. The council acepted
the proposition by passing tie following resolution: That theoffer of
Chas. Cumings to construct/he proposed extension of Bridge s'reet and
the subway under the C. P/R. track
at Winnipeg avenue, as cmtained in
the letter dated Decembe/ 2, 1902,
and according to plans aid specifications prepared and tone prepared
by the city enigneer, aw passed and
adopted by this couiyil, is hereby
accepted.

REV. IRL R. HICKS'1903 ALMANAC
To say that this splendid work of
-science aftid 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 Jyou 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
tM Rio Grande system, the far
famed "Scenic Line ofthe 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 en n be found
than is provided by these excursions.

COLUMBIA
CITY OF BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENTS,
EALTHFUL CLIMATE AND BOUNTIFUL
RESOURCES-SPLENDID ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND WATERWORKS SYSTEMS-THE
RAILWAY CENTRE OF SOUTHEASTERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The City of Columbia il situated near the Junction of
the North Forks of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river, and is distant about SOO miles east of Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Bleotrlo 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
Are. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
The natural situation of the eity for beauty la not excelled
In Ameriea. A verdure-clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed, by a river of bright, sparkling water,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a eharmlng combination of pletureaqueinest and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Hallway company, has Its station,
freight warehouse and yards In the oenter of Columbia, and
the Taneouver, Tlctora A Bastern Railway company, has
located Its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thu. giving the, city connection, with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paollle railway oompany has large Interests in the oity, having selected the site on account of the superior uatural advantages as a railway oentre.
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best In Can-
ada-part of the summer Is rather hot aud dry, but the rest of
the year Is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there Is an extent af
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, oherrles land all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding |Columbia,
divided into <imall fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Kuilding material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prioes, 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 the mountains
adjacent to the city, aud what were mere prospects a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Oranby smelter and converter—the most modern
aud perfect plant of the kind iu America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the eity.
Owing to tha fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia ;»ill be an educational
oentre, a city of homes, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister oity,
will be the best  aud largest city In)   Ihe interior. Square Hotel

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

Victoria A Eastern Railway aud Navigation

A. H. MaoNEILL,
Solloitor for V., V. A E. R. A N. Co.
A strike of good ore has been
made in the Cariboo-McKinney
company's Cariboo mine in Camp
McKinney at 400-foot level west.
Heretofore nearly all the pay ore
found has been to the eastward,
work to the west having given but
poor results. Lately, howevar, the
head shaft boss persisted in development work to the west with gratifying eventual results.
It is stated that the face of the
drift at the 160-foot level of the Waterloo mine, in Camp McKinney, is
now showing about five feet of gold
quartz ore .assaying from $100 to
$130 per ton.
The 100 horsepower dynamo,
which will drive the large ore crusher for the Granby company at Phoenix, which has already been erected
at the Knob Hill mine ore bins, arrived last week, and has been inT
stalled by the company's electriciun.
It was furnished by an electric company of Petersborough, Ont.
The Snowshoe mine" last week
made the record shipment of any
single week in the mine's history,
sending out to the smelters 1410
tons of ore. Thus far this year the
mine has shipped about 15,000 tons
of ore, and from now on the rate will
be somewhat'increased.   ■
Porter Bros., who have been at
work on a stripping contract for the
Granby mines, have at last completed the work for the winter and
have stored the tools and paraphernalia. They have uncovered a large
area of ore and have removed somewhat over 15,000 cubic yards of material.
The owners of the Providence
mines, situated close to Greenwood,
have received $2,887.34 as the net
proceeds of one car of ore containing 40,910 pounds gioss shipped to
the Trail smelter recently. This
gives a realized value of a „£rifle
more than $141 per ton, calculating
the tonnage as above.
Ore bins that will hold 2800 tons
are now being constructed at the
Snowshoe mine.
It is reported from Camp McKinney that a short time ago G. M.
Bennett, who jumped the Waterloo
claim, contending that neither the
old Waterloo Mining & Milling
company nor the more recent Waterloo Consolidated Mining & Milling company had a legal right to the
claim, was offered a cash consideration by one of the management of

him the mineral claim formerly
owned by him and known as the
Radja, and which he states the
company's superintendent jumped
and thus deprived him of it.
