trot or pace on July 1st for pacers
eligible for the 2:20 class, and free
for all trotters. Distance one mile,
heats, three in five; purse S300.
This race has already been filled,
entries from Spokane alone numbering six in this class, making it one
of the best races of the meeting. A
special prize of $100 **ill also be
paid to the owner of the horse winning a heat ih 2:17 or better. Advices from Spokane, Cheney, Davenport, Walla Walla, Rossland,
Okanagan and other points indicate

will particigate in the races here on
July 1st and 2d are the following:
Lotha, Eolean, Lady Marie, Rothschild, Tack, Dancing Kid, Aborigi-
nee, Junot, Miss Miller, as well as
three horses from Davenport, four
from the lower Okanagan, a couple
from Rossland, and probably a few
from Seattle. The entries do not

probably some additional horses will
drift in at the last moment.
In the special trot and pace thc
following are expected to arrive tomorrow: Doc Bunnelle, Al Counter, Jay P. Adams, Vision, Babe
Chapman, Stanwix, Almota, Umatilla. Dr. M, the guideless wonder,

FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 1903
There seems to be a disposition on
the part of some prominent poli-l
licians at the coast, and even in Nelson, to assume authority in loeal
party affairs, which, in the opinion
of this paper, they are not entitled
to. And this assumption is not confined to would-be coast dictators in
the Liberal party; but similar manifestation of unwarranted interference
is discomable in the Conservative
party. Those self constituted leaders must retire from the exercise of
control over the interior, under the
new party-line conditions, which
they enjoyed by tolerance under the
former system, At the Conservative
gathering Friday night, it was pleasing to note thc spirit of independence exhibited by speakers against
submitting to directions issuing from
the coast, or any part of ihe province.
True, under the party-line system,
eaeh party will be governed in general matters by a provincial platform
or code of principles, and every riding in the province should have a
hand in the promulgation of that
code. This code or party platform,
when adopted in a provincial convention, composed of delegates from
all the ridings in the province, becomes the political constitution of the
party adopting it, throughout the
province. This may be reaffirmed
at the riding conventions, and their
local platforms added. Further
than this provincial party authority
should not be allowed to go. This
riding is competent to manage its
own politilal affairs. The purpose
of its erection by the redistribution
act, was to give it self-control, and
the "butting in" of coaast politicians should be summarily dealt
with at the outset, and given to understand, once and for all time, that
this riding will run its on show and
take the gate money.
taxpayers. If this be true, do our
business men not see the justice of
The Sun's claim for a greater share
of their patronage? If the expose
in this instance results—with the
commendable stand of Aldermen
McLellan and McCallum—in the
defeat of the unpopular proposed
salary by-law, it not only will
have saved to tli£ city treasury
tho sum of $500 this year, but it
will have caused the setting of a
precedent that will save to the eity
thousands of dollars in the future.
The Sun has stood, stands now,
and will stand in the future, for
the sublic good and for all the
people, and it should be more
heartily supported by the taxpayers
of thc city.
THE RECORDS
The Evening Sun has been congratulated and commended by nil
(irand Forks for its full, fair and
honest expose of the salary grab
movement in the city council, and it
is frankly admitted on all sides that
bad it not been for the action of The
Sin in the matter, the public would
never have been informed in detail
on the subject, and would not have
known where to place the blame for
the proposed raid on our already depleted treasury  and   overburdened

i BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
T. H. Rhea, a mine operator formerly of Rossland, was in the city
last week. Mr. Rhea recently
organized a company of Chicago
men to operate the Betts and Hesperus, on Hardy mountain, about
40 miles from this city, and the new
corporation will start development
work at once. The officers are
wealthy Chicago men, the president
being Charles J. MacGee. They
will arrive here shortly to inspect
the property, which has always been
regarded as one of the best in Wellington camp. About 300 feet of
crosscuts and surface work performed by former owners has opened
up some rich sulphide ore. Mr.
Rhea will personally direct developments, which at the outset will
consist of surface stripping, with a
view of opening up a glory hole
similar to those of the Granby 'and
the Snowshoe mines. It is his intention to make a smelter test at an
early date. The new company is
the Hesperus Gold & Sulphur Mines
company.
It is expected that work will be
resumed on the Big Copper and also
the King Solomon claims, in West
Copper camp, in the near future.
Charles P. Robbins and Leo H.
Long, of Spokane, were at the Yale
this week, on their return trip from
Republic, where they visited and
examined the Belcher mine. They
stated that they measured the
vein in the red tunnel, and the crosscut on ore shows 66 feet in width,
all solid sulphide, and 30 feet additional width of the vein that they
judge carries about 15 per cent of
pyrites in the gangue. From their
description it is an immense body of
smelting ore.
The Toronto Daily Globe says:
"Only by those who know something officially with regard to the
growth of insurance companies will
the full meaning of the results
which have been achieved by the Independent Order of Foresters during
the two months just closed be fully
understood. The public have been
so used to hearing of the success of
this order that fresh figures of large
additiohs to the membership do not
strike them as anything uncommon,
but even the most casual observer,
we imagine will be somewhat astonished at the fact that during the
months of December and January
this great Canadian and international order considered no less than 14,-
602 applications for membership in
its ranks. Of these 13,140 were accepted. Perhaps the most striking
feature of the additions to the membership of the order during this time
has been the fact that by'far the
greatest proportionate number of
new members has been secured in
the province of Ontario, where the
order is best known, with a total
membership of about 210,000 to begin February with, Dr. Oronhya-
tekha has set the figures for the end
of the year at 240,000, and as the
supreme chief ranger usually succeeds in what he marks out as thc
proper measure of progress for thc
order, no doubt these figures will be
reached. Undoubtedly the growth
of this institution has become phenomenal."
