Grand Forks and Columbia, B. C.   Friday, October 3, 1902.
N0.IJW
H. S. Cayley Elected President-Other Business
Transacted.
A well-attended meeting of the
Grand Forks board of trade was
held Wednesday, evening at their
rooms on Riverside avenue. A letter was read from E. Doberer, resigning his position as president
owing to his having to leave the
city permanently. His resignation
was accepted, and the election of a
new president was proceeded with.
W. K. C. Manly, Chas. Cumings,
C A. Powell and H. S. Cayley were
nominated for the position, but as
the two first-named refused to accept, as"also did Mr. Powell when
it was pointed out to him that it
would be impossible for him to act
impartially on the railroad question
while he. was a debtor of the Hot
Air road, H. S. Cayley was elected
by acclamation. Mr. Cayley is well
known as an ardent supporter of the
V., V. & E., and it was largely owing to this fact that he was so unanimously supported.
The president was instructed to
appoint a committee of five, with
himself as chairman, to arrange for
meeting the Hon. A. G. Blair on his
approaching visit to this djstriet,
and to use their utmost endea*>rs
to induce him to visit this cffcV.
A resolution was adopted amending the by-laws in such a manner
as to allow voting by ballot whenever a majority of the board wish it,
instead of it requiring a two-thirds
vote as formerly.
Fraflk Sears gave notice of a motion to amend the by-laws as follow-: (a.) That where not otherwise
laid down in the by-laws, Cushing's
Manual should govern the ruling of
the association. (/>) That the president should not have a vote, except
a easting vote as chairman.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1902.
The rumor so industriously circulated recently that General-Manager
Holland, of the Kettle Valley Lines,
had "resigned," finds corroboration
in a private dispatch from Toronto,
where Mayor Holland presumably
is at present located. The greatest
surprise expressed in Grand Forks
was that the "resignation" was so
long delayed. Mr. Holland doubtless has abilities which, if directed
into the proper chanels, would insure good results; but railroading
was an unkown business to him—he
had not the faintest practical knowledge of the business. Upon assuming office, he at once adopted the
foolish policy that the best way to
upbuild his line was to put his entire efforts toward throwing obstacles
in the way of competitors, with the
result that the "hot air" line has
reached its present deplorable and
ludicrous condition. It is to be
hoped his successor is a practical
and broad-minded man. There is
room for railways, in this section—
there cannot be too many of them—
but they must be operated for the
• bettering of transfer conditions, and
not as a menace to all others who
are engaged in an honest endeavor to
give us improved railway service.
POINTED SHOTS.
Lost, strayed or stolen from Grand
Porks—one Mayor.    No reward.
The office should seek the map ;
not in Mayor Hollandts case, however.
A iuii.w.vY without trains, like a
man'witliout brains, is mighty small
ptftatoes these days.
Mayor -Holland, with noticeable
impartiality, has side-tracked his
mayoralty chair as well as his private
ear!
If Mayor Holland's idol is his
"hot air" railway, of course it's his
idle idol. It isn't working these
days.
The night before election, it will
be remembered, Mavor-Elect Holland took the V., V. & E. pledge.
Sort of backslider, eh ?
The "hot air" line wws opened
up by a great blare ; it will also
probably be closed up by a great
Blair—Minister of Railways Blair.
They call a man who pleases
everybody a paragon ; but in Grand
Forks the man who pleases nobody
tbey naturally enough call Mayor
Holland.      '
If its present inactivity continues
^mueh longer,   the   "hot air" outfit
gayc^o erect some "Keep off
as along its four-mile
When Mayor Holland does finally
consent to fulfill his municipal duties, someone will have to introduce
him. He and his duties are long
since strangers.    We're willing.
It has been truly said, "money
makes the mare go." It certainly
made our Mayor go—go to Ottawa
to work against the best interests of
the City of Grand Forks, which he
had sworn to promote.
The good news has reached Grand
Forks that the shortage of coal, as a
result of the continued strike in the
east, will not in the least affect the
running of trains on the "hot air"
line ; because their trains are not
running anyway, and, besides, their
locomotives do not use that sort of
fuel, the road being operated in all
departments by simon-pure hot air.
If Mayor Holland "looks after"
the interests of Grand Forks, we
rise to remark he must indeed be a
"far-sighted" gentleman^ He is at
present in the east; and most of the
time since taking office hasn't been
within 100 miles of Grand Forks—
excepting, of course, when he has
laid aside his onerous duties as general manager of the side-line railway
to lead his "hot air" baseball department to victory.
PROMINENT VISITERS
William H. Nicholls, president of
the Nicholls Chemical company, of
New York, -refiners of precious
metals, arrived in the Boundary last
week, and spent Friday and Saturday in Grand ForkB. He was accompanied by his wife and daughters and a party of friends. They'
inspected the mines at Phoenix and
other camps and the Granby smelter in this city.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
works' of which Mr. Nicholls is the
president may ■ be formed when it is
stated that their annual output is
200,000,000 pounds of refined copper and 816,000,000 worth of gold
and silver. This enormous amount
represents a very large proportion of
the world's copper production. AJ
his works blister copper and other
metals are refined by the electrolytic process.
Mr. Nicholls was surprised at the
vastness of the ore bodies found in
this section, saying they were the
largest he had ever seen. He also
paid a high compliment to the men
employed in the mines. He thought
they were the finest body of workmen
he had seen in his travels.
He was very enthusiastic in his
praise of the Granby smelter, and
thought it was the most modern plant
he had ever inspected. In regard to
labor-saving appliances, he did not
hesitate to express the opinion that
it was the most up-to-date reduction
plant on the continent. The blister
copper received from the Boundary,
he said, was the puresft that came to
New York.
Regarding the price of copper,
Mr. Nicholls thought it was bound
to rise—probably as high as 14c.
He thought the price at present was
kept down by the market manipulators.
_ Mr. Nicholls, who is only 55
years of age, is the founder of the
immense refining works located on
Manhattan island.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN

Ewing-r-excellently rendered "Old
Black-Joe"; Mrs. D. D. Murirosang
exquisitely "Madeline"; Mr. Kreitz

Kingdom"; then came the solo,
'"Calvary," by Jos. Hill; Miss
Mamie Fraser made the hit of the
evening with her graceful rendering
of "Good Morning,  Carrie";   Mr.

prosperity in his new home.

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 ihe 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 thc World,"
. the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Ijeadville, 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 reclinyig 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.

river, and is distant about 800 miles east of Vancouver",
"Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterwork»8ystems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. Theelectrio light system will include street arc lamps. The waterworks system Is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all presenl and future
needs, aud insuring ample protection from the ravages of
fire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
Tha natural situation of the city for beauty l« not excelled
iu America. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waler,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pletureeque«i.e»« and grandeur.
The Columbia* Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian PaetBe Railway company, has its station.
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Tictora A Bastera Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east liue
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections^, ith two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has large interests ill the city, having selected the site on aoConni of (he superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year around, is tU» »•<-»> l|i Canada-part of the summer is rather hot and dry, bill th* rust of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there is sir nt »'
fertile  agricultural land, part of which is lluu    being cultivated.'
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries am! sll the »oiall
fruits grow abundantly. Thevalley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Iliilldlug material is plentiful'in the district.   Lumbar can

Warn IMPERIAL LIFE
In reviewing the list of prominent
Whan 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

Mr. Curtis Explains the Recently Enacted Legislation.
As considerable misunderstanding
exist regarding the new provisions
of the recent Redistribution Act and
the amendments to the Provincial
Election Act, the following facts,
which have been ascertained from
Smith Curtis, M.L.A., will be of interest:
(«) The redistribution of the
province into new ridings electing 42
members instead of 38, as a present,
will not come into effect until the
present legislature is dissolved.
(b) The present voters' lists as revised in May and November in each
year continue to be in force until
the dissolution of the present assembly.
(c) In case of a vacancy in any
riding prior to the dissolution of the
present assembly, the bye-election
would be for the old constituency
on the present voters' lists. '
(rf) Whenever the present assembly is dissolved, the present voters'
lists will thereby be canceled, and
the government will forthwith appoint a collector for each new riding
and he will prepare a new voters'
list and must hold a court of revision of same within three months
from the date of the dissolution, and
the general elections will be held
upon such revised new lists.
(e) When a general election is
held no one will have a vote unless
he has made special application
after the dissolution of the assembly
has been proclaimed.
(/) Hereafter whether application is made to get on the present
lists for old ridings, or after cancellation of the present lists to get on
the new lists to be used at the general election, the applicant, instead
of making a mere declaration as
heretofore, must make an affidavit
before some one authorized to take
it of his right and qualification, and
in ease of false swearing will be
liable to criminal prosecution, which
is fourteen years in the penitentiary.
The new lists for the general election will be fairly clean. The present lists will lie loaded down with a
very large number of names of persons who are not, by reason of non-
residence or death, entitled to vote,
and this obtains to the extent of 2o
per cent, or even 50 per cent, of the
number enrolled, so that the present lists are perfectly scandalous.

Oct. 6 to 14 inclusive, the Great

from Grand Forks at $7.25, good for
seven clays from date of purchase.
