THE EVENING
VOL. 1
GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B.C. FRIDAY, JULY 11, 1902.
NO. 172
THE CONCERT
The concert and entertainment at
Biden's opera house Wednesday evening, though largely attended, was not
as well patronized as the hisjh merit ol
the performance deserved. And those
who did not attend missed a literary
treat that they may never get an opportunity of witutssing. It was the
most refinen, interesting and charming entertainment that has ever been
seen iu Grand Forks. Mi,s La Dell
is a graduate of the Philadelphia
school of oratory, and holds a place
distinctly her own. Flattering as the
press notices throughout Canada have
been, none expected anything quite sn
delightful as the great versatility of
talent displayed by her. Her dramatic,
pathetic and humorous readings de-
ighted and thrilled her audience.
Her different dialect sketches were
handled with consummate skill, while
her imitation of child life was perfect.
She captured her audience early in the
performance with her selections, and
each succeeding number added to her
popularity, double and triple encores
being the rule of the evening.
Miss Teresa Flanagan, Canada's
sweetest soprano, was alsb warmly
greeted*. It-was unfortunate lor her
audience that she was suffering from
the effects of sore throit, thus rendering her unable to respond io tbe numerous encores teudered her. Miss
Flanagan has a voice ot wonderful
powerful and compass, and had captivated her audience after the first
stanza. Her vocal solos were charmingly rendered,
that most of the Boundary mines
will be worked at a profit and there
can be no doubt that the district will
be a great producer for a|long time."
There is nothing of tbe prevailing
pessimism in Mr. Williams' views of
Rossland and its future. He believes
that the principal mines will all turn
'out well, and is convinced   that tbe
I trouble with the mineis is now quite
I a thing of the past.
While on the coast Mr. Williams
took advantage to visit the now famous Mount Sicker camp He seemed
to be impressed with what he saw, and
remarked:
i "Mining is evidently being carried
ou there ou a large scale and on scientific lines. Judging from the large
amount ot ore which I saw on the
Lenora dump the camp will be a big
one. The proximity of the smelter at
Croltou and the facilities for shipment
provided by Mr. Crofton's unique tram
line affords the most advantageous
conditions for mining at Mount
Sicker."
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
WILLIAMS IS OPTIMISTIC
In an interview to a press representative in Vancouver last Monday, W.
Yolen Williams, mining superintendent for the Granby company, who
went to that city to meet President
Miner, speaks very hopefully of ihe
mining outlook, saying there is no
reason to be downhearted. This is because the problem of ihe profitable reduction of low grade ores is being
gradually solved and "the rve'iimal
success of our mining and princi al
industry is assured," as he put it himself.
Speakiug ol the conditions in the
Boundary, he stated that the Granby
smelter at Grand Forks was trea ing
1500 tons daily, and additional lur-
naces are to be put in to bring the capacity up to 2000 tons per diem. He
does not anticipate that the difficulty
caused by the shortage of coke in consequence of the strike at Fernie will
long continue.
''Of course," he added, "'the problem of mining in the Boundary country is the reduction to the lowest
possible limit of the cost of the treatment of ore. While ore bodies are
generally very large, the average grade
of values is small. However, I believe
P. D. Macdonald, who has the con-
! tract for installing and completing the
I Columbia electric light system, commenced    work    yesterday   morning
stringing the poles on the streets where
'. they are to be erected.   This morning
! work was begun on digging holes for
j the   poles,   and they   will be erected
i early next week.   The system will be
connected with the Grand Forks light
on Bridge  street   near   the C.  P. R.
bridge, and Irom that point it will run
out Government avenue to Columbia
street; thence up Columbia street  to
the C. P. R. depot.    Numerous  sub-
circuits will also be put in.   The system will include ten arc lights.
The good news was ciiculated Tuesday evening tbat on tbe morrow two of
the Granby smelter furnaces,which had
been idle for a little over a week on
account of a coke famine, were to be
blown in. And the report piov d to
be true. Early Wednesday morning
smoke was teen issuing Irom the smelter smokestacks, and evryhodv in
lown put ' n the r Sunday snide. As
tbe backbone'il the Feu ie strike appears to be broken, the SliK'I > r ma 11-
agement do s uot anticipate any fut-
ther shortage of the coke supply.

AN ELOQUENT ADDRESS
Last Sunday evening Mr. Calder
spoke on the subject ot our country
and its need. His subject was virtually
a plea in behalf of the Home Mission of the Presbyterian church.
He spoke of the work in Ontaria,
Manitoba and the Northwest Territories, and dealt in the closing part of
his address with our ewn province.
His remarks in reg-grd to British Columbia were as follows: And now
you co r,e to tbe great range of mountains through which you pass into the
province of British Columbia. Tbe
position of our province is unique in
the Dominion. It possesses an importance to us, a relative importance
to our Dominion, which few have tried
to realize. Just look at its position. It
ii at the end of a great ferry which
crosses the Pacific ocean, and at the
other end there are five hundred millions ot people. The problem of a
large influx from China and |apau to
our shores I leave the future to solve.
But who are the Chinamen? Tbeir
civilization is one that is hoary with
age. They had libraries and universities three thousand years before our
white-haired fathers emerged Irom
barbarism. They are au intellectual
people, and there is no government
that has surpassed China in diplomacy
and no merchants that have exceeded
the Chinese in their ability or success. Now. are all these things by accident? The population of our province is not large. The number all told
is only 190,000 people, and of these
several thousand are Chinamen. Rut
if we are numerically weak, we have
immense territory which will sustain
many people in tbe end. I used to
think of the province of British Columbia as a narrow strip of land lying
close to the sea, out of which they
dug golden sands, and in the gulches
of whose canyons thev found gold and
silver I consulted my geography and
The Year Hook of {British Columbia,
and I found it was a ureat country. I
found that instead of being a narrow
strip it is as larae as the province" of
Onlarioand Manitoba.and Nova Scotia
to boot. It is rich too, n everything
thai has made other lands to le k rat
or prosperous. Some one hascalle.l it
a sea of mountains, but there are fertile valleys that run up and down these
mountains for hundreds of miles that
may be converted into good farms, or
that will furn;ah theiinest pasture for
unnumbered herds ol cattle. But the
people that flocked into the province
in the early sixties and that have come
in by "rushes" at stated intervals ever
since, did not come because of (he fertile valleys or extensive grazing lands.
They were influenced to come by the
wonderful discovery of gold. The rich
mines of Cariboo, Cassiar and Rossland have drawn men Irom all countries and from all classes. Yoanc men
from  tbe  best homes in the east and
the neighboring republic — business
men of all descriptions, as well as the
ruffian, fleeing from justice across tbe
line, men from every country in Europe, from Australia and New Zealand, from China and Japan, came
here aud met in the mining camp in
the mountains. And there,, soon, stood
open to welcome them the doors of saloons, gambling dens aid bawdy
houses. But what does public opinion say in regard to these things today? It should speak, and it should
sp'ak with no uncertain soird. We
must keep alive an ethics that shall
prese ve social morality and public
decency. We should adopt the means
th .t will best s' cure the permanence
of our social, civil and religious institution.'. Tne people of the province
have in part come irom the European
hives of the race. They have worked
hard, hut thev might have worked as
lmrrl in the old land and not be worth
ii sixpence todav. Many o1 them are
now well "ff. Business men with no
capital but llteir brains and tin i • two
hands are  wealthy.   They  naturally
feel   an interest in tbe land   of  their
adoption.    We all feel a deep interest
in it.   Can we manifest our interest in
any better way than by sending   tbe
gospel of the Son of God to every corner of the land?   We are anxious that
our country should prosper.   The best
way to make it prospei; the best  way
to make ourpeople industrious, moral,
and happy; the best way to make them
patriotic and loyal, is to put into every
heart   the   religion   of our Lord and
Savior fesus ('hiiet. Now, what are we
doing   to  accomplish  this?   We are
proud ol the achievements of the past,
and never fail to refer to the detds of
her ism which our'fathers performed.
But  do we give any attention 'o what
we are performing ourselves?   We ate
proud of the   church  tbat  has been
handi d down to us, but what kind   of
church are we going to hand down  to
those   that come alter   us?    We  are
proi.d of the   history  we read—a his-
lory in part wri'ten in blood, but what
will   tbe   future   historian  say of the
Presbyterian   church   iu   British Columbia?

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 300 miles east of Vancouver.
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.
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 charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway compauy, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora 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 Pacifle railway company has large interests in the city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
Jk
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 *f
fertile agricultural land, purt 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 and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population. >
s
Building material is plentiful In the district. Lumber can
be procured ill fair prices, aud brick lime and stone of good
quality can always lie 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 eity, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter -the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind iu Amerida—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the tine climate, the central situation, the
heautible .environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will 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 the interior. 'I
