SUNSET SIGNALS
The latest political sensation, lo-
! cally, is a labor ticket. It was
heralded broadcast on the streets
and in the shops yesterday that the
labor . element of the city intended
to place a complete ticket in the
tield at the forthcoming municipal
election; It Was also stated that W.
H. Creitz, architect and juvenile entertainer, had been selected as standard bearer. !
A great deal of random talk has
been in circulation during the past
two days concerning thc induction
of the V. <ft N. telephone wires by
the Cascade company's power cables.
It was even stated, last night that
the telephone company intended to
bring suit against the power company for heavy damages. Mr. Turner, of the former company, was
seen by a Sun reporter this evening,
and he said there was absolutely no
foundation to the rumor. There
was a leakage in the power company's wires at present, he said,
which was causing a great deal of
trouble; but the power people
were doing their best to locate it,
and when found and remedied he
anticipated no further trouble from
induction.
The fourth annual Christmas tree
and cantata entertainment of Knox
church Sabbath school will be held

and dialogues, after which a beautiful and high-class cantata, entitled
"Christmas and the Kerchiefs," will
be put on by ■about fourteen scholium. There will be two trees decorated, one specially for the children
of the Sabbath school, and the other

The jnry impanelled by Coroner
Westwood to fix the responsibility
for the death of Thomas Begley,
who was killed by receiving an electric shock while working on the
telephone line at Cascade last week,
returned a verdict Tuesday evening.
Tho jury decided that the death of
the unfortunate man was accidental,
caused by him having grasped a
telephone wire which had in some
manner nnknown to them become
charged with electricity. The jury
also added a recommendation that
the provincial government appoint

The first case to corne before the
law courts in this district, and probably the first in the province, upon
which the provision of the amendment to the minera,] act authorizing
the forfeiture of the interest in a
mineral claim of any delinquent co-
owner after advertising and subsequent filing with the mining recorder the requisite notice and affidavit has a direct bearing, came before His Honor Judge Leamy at
last week's sitting of the county
court at Greenwood. In this matter
George H. Collins, a well-known
mining man of Greenwood, brought
action against Thomas Bradshaw, of
Twenty-Mile Creek, Similkameen,
for an accounting for certain moneys ^ttend
plaintiff alleges he paid to defendant for expenditure on mineral
claims owned jointly by the parties
thereto. Bradshaw had published
the advertisement required by law
with the object of securing the forfeiture to himself of Collins' interest
in a mineral claim in the Similka-
Collins obtained from Judge
feiture proceedings pending trial of
his action for an accounting, as aforesaid, alleging that Bradshaw is indebted to him beyond the amount
of his snare of the assessment work
done by Bradshaw on the claim they
jointly own. The judge referred the
accounts to James S. Birnie, assistant to Government Agent McMynn,
for examination. Bradshaw's solicitor applied to have thc injunction dissolved, but this was opposed
by Collins' solicitor, who pointed
out that it would leave Bradshaw
free to give a conveyance of all interest in the claim, and might thus
do Collins an injustice. Eventually
Bradshaw's solicitor agreed to give
an undertaking that his client would
not execute any. such transfer until
after the question of his liability to
Collins Had been determined, so the
judge dissolved the injunction accordingly.

To say that this splendid work of
science and art is finer and better
than ever, is stating at 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 te any reasonable persen. Added
to the most luminous course in
astronomy for 1903, fereeasts 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 &L.00 a year. Write to
Word and Works Publishing Co. ,
2201 Locust Street, St. Loms, Mo.,
and prove >to yourself their great
value.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage Ibrush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
vitfw 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
ing 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 fiuide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can l>e found
than is provided by these excursions.

COLUMBIA
CITY OF BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENTS,
V , T HFUL CLIMATE AND BOUNTIFUL
RESOURCES-SPLENDID ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND WATERWORKS SYSTEMS-THE
RAILWAY CENTRE OF SOUTHEASTERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The City of Columbia tl 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 Bleetrle Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed In September. Theelectrio 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 city tor beauty Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure otad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waler.
fringed with forest trees and turrounded by mountains, form-
Ing a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur. ■)
The Columbia A Western railway, whioh was eonstruoted
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has Its station,
freight warehouse and yards In the center of Columbia, and
the Tanoouver, Vlctora A Eastern Railway oompany, 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 Pacific railway company has large interests iu the city, having seleoted the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
The climate, takeu all the year around, Is the best in Canada-part of the summer is rather hot and dry, but the rost of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there Is an 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 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
duality can always be obtained when required.
The mining Interests arenf the Urst Importance ;to this
country, and will do much tu 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 -the most modern
aud perfect plant of the kind In America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
O.vlng to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautlble 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 Anally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the   best   and largest city in    lltnKiici.

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 or directors is composed of
strong financiers and gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
business. This company mis 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,
(MHO on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
Ibis eompany. Mr. J. A. McCallum
is agent :il Columbia and Grand
Forks.
The jackets, air blasts and water
pipes, and other iron work : for the
second blastfurnace for the Boston
k Montreal Copper company's smelter at Boundary Falls, arrived over
the C. P. R- last Monday.
E. R. Delbridge, superintendent
of the California mine, Republic,
has contracted with the Hall Mines
smelter, Nelson, B. C, to handle
500 tons of California second class
ore. There will still remain about
3000 tons of tin; same grade of ore
ou the dump, and the mine is producing more every day. The production of first class ore still con-
tines in the same ratio as heretofore,
and is being shipped at the rate of
two carloads, or 60 tons, per week.
The shaft will be down to the oOO-
foot level this week, and a crosscut
will be immediately started, to run
through the hanging wall country
rock for the ore vein.
The Goldfinch mineral claim, up
Twin creek and within half a mile
of the city hall at Greenwood, is
again under bond. This, time C. M.
Bassett, of Spokane, has taken hold
of it for himself and others associated with him in this venture. Heretofore the Goldfinch has not been
given a fair show to demonstrate
whether or not it is a property that
may be expected to develop into a
mine.
An important deal is nearly consummated, says the Republic Newt,
by the terms of which J. W. Mc-
Cann will acquire a three years'
lease on the North San Poil mine
and an option on the Curlew Mining
company's holdings of stock in the
mine. The North San Poil lies
between the Ben Hur and San Poil
mines, and has been developed by a
shaft midway between its two ehd
lines to a depth of 125 feet. This
shaft is in shipping ore all the way
from the surface down. The mines
adjoining it oil each side have been
developed to over 200 feet depth
and fine ore shoots proven, making
the property one of the best propositions in the camp.
It is announced on good authority
that the Chieo mine, in Republic
camp, is soon to resume work. The
ore will be shipped to the Granby
smelter. Officials of the,company
at Taconia are reported to be making preparations at the present time
for a resumption of work.
Officials of the company state that
the resumption of work on the Tom
Thumb mine, Republic, which was
closed down pending the completion of the railway to tbe .Granby
smelter, is now only a matter of a
few weeks' time.
An average sample of ore taken
across the face of the drift south
from the shaft of the Trade Dollar
mine, Republic, on the 300-foot
level, nine feet north of the Ben
Hur end line, assayed $47.82. The
ledge is 3 feet 7 inches wide at this
point.
