The V., V. k E. Will Have
Steel Laid Into the City
Tomorrow Night.
Sunday evening a march was
stolen on the Hot Air road by the
V., V. & E. construction gang, and
as a result the steel of the latter
road will be laid into the city by
Wednesday evening.
Sunday afternoon the work train
of the Washington & Great Northern came up from Marcus with a
gang of men under Foreman M.
Duffey, and all material necessary
for the crossing, which had previously been prepared. Work in
cutting the rails of the Hot Air
track and in putting in the crossing
was begun at 5 o'clock and finished
within an hour.
So quickly was the work done
that not a person in the city knew
of what had occurred until about.8
o'clock in the evening.
Yesterday morning the Hot Air
officials learned the news, and they
immediately sent an engine, box
ear and flat oar out to the crossing.
They took up a position right over
the diamond frog, and remained
anchored there until 5o'clock, when
they became weary of the fight and
returned to this eity. This proceeding materially interfered with
the tracklaying on the V., V. & E.,
as all the material had to be earned
over the Hot Air track, and then
hauled tq the workmen on a handcar. Conquently but little headway was made yesterday.
Today, however, no interruptions
occurred, and the work of laying
steel was prosecuted with vigor.
If Nothing out of the ordinary happens, steel will be laid to the depot
site on the boundary line between the
two cities by tomorrow night.
The original plan for sidestraeks
in this city will be adhered to. At
present three will be laid.
The work of building the freight
and passenger depots will be let to
local contractors. Notices calling
for tenders have already been sent
out from the head office in St. Paul,
and the plans and specifications are
now on their way to this city.
The putting in of the crossing
across thc Hot Air track, even if it
was not strictly according to Hoyle
and the British Columbia courts, is
generally approved by our citizens.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1902
The outlook for the'future of our
city was never brighter than it is today. The railway fight, which has
now been in progress for nearly a
year, has luckily come to a sudden
end, and the V., V. & E: is at liberty to resume its construction
work in this vicinity. The dispatch
from St. Paul, printed last Friday's,
issue of The Sun, stated that Mr.
Hill intended to commence work at
once on the smelter branch. We
have no reason to doubt this statement, as it is quite apparent that
as soon as the road'gets iu: position
to deliver ore at the Granby smelter
. the tonnage of the Great Northern
between this eity and Republic ,wilj
be more than doubled. And the
building of this spur will probably
take the major portion of the winter, as, there is a great deal of rock
work to be done. As large ■ a.. force
as can be advantageously worked will
be put on the" construction gangs,
which will mean a big payroll, and
portion, at least, of this money will
ultimately be distributed among our
citizens.
In addition to the improved Condition of the railway situation, unusual activity is now going on at the
Granby smelter. Inside of , two
weeks it will be in operation to its
fullest capacity. It is stated that
by the first of the year two-niore'fur'-
naces will be added to tbe plant,
making six in all. This means
steady employment to a greatly increased force of workmen, and a
larger payroll. '    '
Taken all in all, the future is de-
eidedlv roseate.
Foil SALE—Two second-hand injunctions; have been used effectively
for nearly a year; warranted to kill
ihe prosperity of the most flourishing city; "out of refoair at present;
no reasonable offer refused. Apply
to either the Hot Air or the Columbia & Western.
It pays to advertise in The Six.
The lost, strayed or stolen gentleman has returned to Grand Forks.
It is reported that Mayor Hollani
is grooming a Good Man  Friday as
n mayoralty candidate.
What will Mr. ■Cowan do with his
injunction?
The fight is over.
The Sin learned late tbis evening that all tbe injunction proceedings against the V.. V. & K. at Vancouver have been daopped.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Mayor Holland Arrested—Last
Friday morntng Provincial Constable I. A. Dinsmore arrested Mayor
Tracy W. Holland on a bench warrant | for contempt of court in connection with the Packard case on
Sept. 19th last. Mr. Dinsmore
immediately after the arrest brought
the mayor before Judge Leamy,
who reprimanded him severely and
dismssed him.
■
The Bachelors' Ball—The fifty
odd couples who attended the bachelors' ball in the Biden opera house
last Friday night all agree that it
was a most successful social affair.
The ball room, which was tastefully
and elaborately decorated, was comfortably filled, and the animated
scene presented when the dance was
at its height will long be remembered
by those who took part in it. Many
beautiful costumes were worn by the
'adi ,'s. The various committees are
to be congratulated on the skill with
which they performed their work.
Each member appeared to know
what he had to do, and he did it.
There was not a single blunder—
everything moved like clockwork.
The music', which was furnished by
Graham's orchestra, of Rossland,
was excellent, and many complimentary remarks were made in
reference to it by the dancers. At
rhidnight a dainty ■ supper was
served at the Hotel Winnipeg. The
dining room and office had been
prettily decorated for the occasion,
and the menu was conceded the best
ever provided at a similar function
in the city. The dancers returned
to the hall after supper, and it was
nearly dawn when the" gaiety
ceased.
New Masonic Lodge—Harmony
•Lodge, W. I)., A. F. & A.;M., Grand
Forks, will be instituted on Wednesday evening, the 19th inst., at
7:30 p. in., by the district deputy
grand master, Right Worshipful
Brother George W. Hering, of Rossland, assisted by brethren from
Phoenix, Greenwood, Trail and
Rossland. The institution will take
place in Oddfellows', hall, and will
be followed by a banquet. Invitations will be extended- to resident
and sojourning brethren. The oe
'Oasion should prove a most enjoya
bio one, as so pains are being spare*
in making the preparations.
Lord's Day Alliance—At the
regular monthly meeting of the
Lord's Day alliance, held in Knox
Presbyterian church last Thursday
evening, it was decided to meet at
tbe office of W. H. Creitz in future
for the transaction of the monthly
business of the executive board.
The alliance has arranged for a public meeting for next Thursday night
at S o'clock in the Federal Labor
Union hall. The object of the meeting is to discuss the principles of the
alliance, to which the public is cordially invited. A special invitation
is extended to the ladies.
Socialist League—The Socialist
League of Grand Forks will hold its
first meeting for the winter season
next Friday night at the Federal
Labor Union hall. It is the intention of the league to establish a free
reading room, and later a library is
to be added. A large number of
new members are expected^ to enroll at this meeting.
It has been seini-officially announced that Mayor Holland is no
longer an official of the Hot Air.
But he still owns some stock in the
road.
GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
At last night's meeting of the
Grand^ Forks city council Mayor
Holland occupied the chair for the
first time in many moons. Aid.
Donaldson, Gaw, Hammar, Matheson and Sheads were present. The
session was short and but little
business was transacted, doubtless
owing to the fact that the aldermen
have not yet had time to become acquainted with the mayor.
The minutes of the previous meeting were read and'approved.
On motion of Aid. Gaw, seconded
by Aid. Matheson, a resolution was
passed that James Addison be given
the contract to repair the First street
bridge, the cost to be applied to his
taxes.   .
On motion of Aid. Hammar, seconded by Aid: Gaw, a committee of
two was appointed to collect samples
of products, of this vicinty and forward the same to the Vancouver
Tourist association. The committee
was also allowed the necessary expenses for prosecuting its work.
Aid. Sheads and Aid. Donaldson
were appointed to serve as such committee.
Thc following bills were ordered
paid: Robert Petrie, $o.!>(); Geo.
Taylor, $53; W. K. C. Manly,

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
thc 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 cast
and west, and afford a choice of live
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 thc 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 300 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Llfrht and
Waterworks Systems are (low 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 picturesuuesness and grandeur.
The Columbia & Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station
freight warehouse aud yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora & Eastern Hallway 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 Paciiie railway company has large interests in the city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
J*
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in nil-
ada-nart of the summer is rather hofrand dry, but the rest of
thc year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there Is an rxtent .f
fertile  agricultural hind, pint of which is now   being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherrie, 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, aud brick lime and stone of good
■ ■■iiilitK i-iiii always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the lirst Importance to this
country, and will do much to build lip Columbia. Lurge mineral lodes have been discovered throngl t  th nntains
ttdja t to the city, and  what were mere prospects a short
time since are now  large paying mines.
The Gratlby smelter and converter the most modern
and perfect plant of the hind iu America—employing hundreds of mini, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine olimate, the central situation, the
hritiitihlc environments, the bright prospects, for future
growth aud prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied aud wedded to her sister city,
will he the   best   aud largest city in ^1 tie interior.

for past week, 12,028 tons; total for
1902, 40!), 771.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 4945 tons of ore. Total for
11)02, 24-5,438 tons.
Over 15,000cubic yards of   ma-;
tcrial have been removed from   the
surface   of the Knob Hill and Old
Ironsides claims since Porter Bros, j
began their contract with the (Iran-
by mines in the middle of the sum- j
iner.
Up to November 1st, this year,'
the Snowshoe had shipped 11,104!
tons of ore.
The ore tonnage received at tbe
Granby smelter from Republic last
week aggregated 402 tons, the ship-
pers being: Black Tail, 150 tons;
Lone Pine-Surprise, 50 tons; Quilp,
200 tons; El Caliph, 3 tons. Thus
Jar to date the Quilp nunc holds the
record with shipments of 675 tons.
Tho San Poil comes next with 350
tons, and thc Black Tail third with
251 tons.
Six men are employed on the
Lone Pine-Surprise claims in lie-
public, and this force will be increased during the present week to
12 men. The campany has a contract with the Granby smelter for
the treatment of 300 tons of ore per
month, but hope to get even a better concession at an early date.
General Manager Jay P. Graves,
of the Granby company, in an interview, in Spokane, states that the
Granby smelter is preparing to treat
all the custom ore that ma)' be offered it, at a fair margin of profit.
"We can easily handle 200 tons of
Republic ore a day," he said, "and
wo arc preparing to fill the demand
for treating more. At present thc
Republic ore treated at thc Granby
plant is being treated through the
converters. That is handled, of
course, at less cost than if handled
through thc blasts, but it costs us
money to treat it, just the saint!.
The Granby mines are developed
and will be equipped by February 1
to a point where they can produce
5000 tons of ore a day for a period
of years. The outlook for thc Granby was never so promising as it is
now. The future is very flattering,"
The Lone Pine-Surprise property,
in Republic, is showing up well.
The company is now working on the
second level, which will average
about 810 per ton. In the upper
level, however, a payshoot has been
uncovered in the vein which gives
assays of 818 to the ton. Tbis pay-
shoot ranges from three to four and
a half feet wide. A winze sunk to
a depth of 20 feet on the payshoot
shows a width at tbe bottom of the
winze of about eight feet of solid
ore, which will go $19 to tbe ton.
