No. 7
The Electric  Light System
Has Been Finished and
Current Turned On.
The Columbia electric lighting
system has been completed, and this
evening the current was turned .on
for the first time.
An arc lamp had temporarily been
fittedjup in the Pacific hotel for > the
purpose of making the test. It
worked to perfection, without a
hitch. Mr. P. D. 'McDonald, the
electrician, who installed the system, looked at it a few moments, radiant with smiles, and then said:
"It's a first-class medicine for sore
eyes." And The Sun repeats this
remark.
All who are skeptical as to the
superiority of arc lamps for street
lighting are invited to view this
light.
TOND FORKS COUNCIL
The: Grand Forks city council met
P lastflight, Tvith Acting Mayor Sheads
ing in the chair.   Aid.  Donaldson,
Gaw, Hammar and Matheson were
present.
A communication was read from
R. E. Gosnell, secretary bureau statistics, asking the council for a collection of photographic views of the
city for display at the B. C. agency
in London. On motion of Aid.
Hammar, seconded by Aid. Matheson, a resolution was passed authorizing the clerk to comply with the
request.
The following bills were ordered
paid: J. I. Gill, $2.50; V. & N. Tel.
Co., 819.10; Dan McMillan, 815.85;
Geo. Taylor, $27; J. Taylor, 817.40;
J. I. Gill, 815; Geo. Pound, 810.50;
Rolp, Smith & Co., 849.
The last-named bill was for a
cheque book for 1903, and has been
charged against the amalgmated
city.
The application of H. S. Cayley
for light in his residence, in the
Ruckle addition, was then disposed
of. The council decided that that
it had no power to grant residents
living outside the city limits the
benefits of the modern improvements
of the corporation.
The communication from the
Grand Forks Socialists League,
laid over from the last meeting, askihg for an appropriation of
8300 to aid in the establishment of
a   free  reading  room and library,
next came up for consideration.
Aid. Hammar reiterated the statement made at the last meeting, that
all the estimates for the current
year had been overdrawn, and that
the council was powerless to extend
financial aid however worthy tie
object might be. After considerable
discussion, a resolution was passed,
on motion of Aid. Donaldson, seconded by Aid. Matheson, that the
city furnish the library with free
light. Tne council also agreed to
make a favorable recommendation to
the next council in regard to a money
appropriation.
The clerk reported a kick from
the Hot Air road in regard to paying
840 per month for water for one en
gine. The council did see how it
could reduce Its rate every time a
Hot Air engine ran off the track.
On motion of Aid. Hammar, seconded by Aid. Donaldson, a 10 per
cent discount was authorized on the
road's water bills if paid before the
10th of every month.
The council then went into committee of the whole for the consideration of Aid. Hammar's wash-house
by-law. It was read and adopted
seriatim, and then passed as a whole.
Upon .the committee rising ^he. bylaw, on motion of Aid. Donaldson,
seconded by Aid. Hammar, the bylaw passed its third reading.
ORANGE L0D6E INSTITUTED
Brother Toye, the organizer ofthe
Ix)yal Orange Association, and Bro.
Bradley, provincial grand secretary
of British Columbia, were in attendance last Frday evening at the institution of Observation L. O. L, No.

visiting brethren are cordially invited to attended.
After the institution the members
and their invited guests sat down to
an elegant banquet at the Granby
hotel. The spacious dining room
had been prettily and elaborately
decorated with bunting, flags and
flowers for the occasion, and looked
as pretty as a picture. The menu
has not been surpassed at any similar event ever held in the city,- The
proprietors of the house, Messrs.
Temple & Thayer, have been extensively congratulated on the excellence of the viands and wines.
It was after midnight when the banquet came to an end. A number of
eloquent speeches were made.

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1902
The soft, flute-like voice of the
politician is beginning to assume a
perfect counterfeit of friendliness.
If, as has been reported, the present mayor of Grand Forks has i an
itching for a second term as chief
execttt|ve of this growing city, we
can confidently assure him he will
feel quite relieved at the close of the
poll on election day. Tracy will
have been thoroughly "scratched"
by the voters, who know what's
what.
A max without a country is better
off than a railwav without a service.
t
Even if Tracy W. Holland does
run for mayor next election, he will
find that, unlike last year, a nomination does not necessarily mean
election—not in his case, anyway.
WAS PLEASED WITH THE BRIDGE
H. C. Killeen, government inspector of roads, trails and bridges,
was in the city last Saturday, and in
company with . Mayor McCallum,
visited and inspected the new Columbia street bridge across the Kettle river.
Mr. Killeen expressed himself as
highly satisfied with the bridge in
every particular. He thought it
was a very substantial and well-built
structure, and his remarks concerning it were very complimentary.
In reference to the newly-made
r a I leading to thc bridge, he also
spoke words of praise. The only
fault he found with it was that it
was too narrow. He said he would
recommend a government grant of
$500 for the purpose of widening it,
Mr. Killeen also said that an ap-
priation had been made for work on
the North Fork mad, but that the
funds had been misapplied. On
this subject an investigation is likely
to follow.
THE LAST SAD RITES
The funeral, last Saturday afternoon, of the late Alderman Robert
J. Wasson was the most largely at-
tendel ever held in tin J city, and
was a 'fitting tribute to._ the sterling
qualities of the deceased. The services at the late residence of deceased, shortly after 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. J. R, Robertson,
assisted   by   Rev.  ,f, A. G. Calder,
were very impressive, and lasted over
an hour. These ended, the hundreds of people who had assembled
to pay their last respects to the
memory of the man whom none had
known but to honor, filed past the
coffin, and took a last look at the
features of their departed friend.
The floral offerings were many
and beautiful. The Columbia council sent a large wreath of carnations,
with the words "Columbia City" in
the centre, worked out of smaller
flowers; the Oddfellows' three links,
and the teiangle of the Knights of
Pythias, both made from beautiful
flowers; the three links of the Re-
bekah lodge, composed of satin and
flowers, besides innumerable smaller
bouquets from friends and admirers,
hid the beautiful casket beneath a
bewilderment of colors and sweet
fragrance.      . ...
The pallbearers were: N. McLellan, Joseph Simpson, J. A. McCallum, G. T. Park, Geo. Rutherford,
and F. Singer.
The funeral cortege, which was
nearly a mile in length, was made
up as follows: Hearse, mourners
irl carriages,' city council, Oddfellows, Knights of Pythias, Foresters,
citizens on foot, citizens in carriages.
Aft the grave the services were
conducted by the Oddfellows lodge.

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 \he Kettle river with the main Kettle
river, and is distant about 300 miles east of Vancouver.
J*
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light, and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light sysfm will in-
elude 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 thecity for beauty Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
praWe traversed by a river of bright, sparkling wa or,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesnes. and grandeur.
The Columbia &-Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora & Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds aud yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
TheCunadian Paclfle railway company has large interests in the city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in f an-
ada-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, 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 frnit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
lie procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality can always bo 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 thc 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
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the eity.
J*
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia* 'will be tin educational
centre, a city of homes- as [well as a wholesale distributing
point; ami when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the  best   and largest city in  t tl e iiu i l< 1. 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 Jgentlemen 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
is agent at Columbia and Grand
Forks.

MINES AND MINING
J. N. "Greenshields, K. C, of
Montreal, was in Grand Forks last
Friday, on his way to Victoria,
where he went to meet his principal,
D. D. Mann, in connection with negotiations with the provincial government respecting the building of
the Canada Northern railway. He
is the principal shareholder of the
Montreal & Boston Copper company, owning the Sunset mine and
smelter at Boundary Falls. Mr.
Greenshields said: "Our second
furnace will be in operation about
Dec. 15. I have just wired east
ordering the third furnace, which
will be built, set up and in operation before Feb. 15. Our company
has decided on a policy of extensive
magnitude in regard to mining and
smelting. The company has large
ore reserves in the mine, and besides is treating custom ore at the
smelter plant. The power' plant at
Boundary Falls is being enlarged to
give power sufficient for five furnaces, which capacity will be reach-
el ere long." Mr. Greenshields
was accompanied by A. Monroe, of
Montreal, a director of the company, and A. I. Goodell, superintendent of the smelter plant. The
visitors inspected the Granby smelter here, being shown over the workings by Superintendent Hodges.
They declared it to be the most up-
to-date plant they had ever seen.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 4998 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 255,452 tons.
The ore shipments from Republic
to the Granby smelter tast week
were: Lone Pine-Surprise, 87 tons;
Quilp, 104 tons; total, 191 tons.
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 4880 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 1200 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 3680 tons; Sunset, Deadwood, 540 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 510 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 420 tons; total

Cut to Pieces
BUT STILL LIVING
We may be slow in Columbia, but we get there
all the same; and whilst wo do not sell for cash
ONLY, we are SHARP enough to CUT prices for
SPOT v CASH just as low as they do in Grand
Forks. We will go one better, and still continue
the custom of credit to those who deserve it.
BUT IT IS
AND IT IS

«
To say that this splendid work of
science nnd 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 thc millions.
Prof. Hicks, through his great Almanac, and his famous family and
scientific journal, Word and World,
is doing a work for the whole people
not approached by any^ otber 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 jiostage 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.
