The City Is Beautifully Illuminated by Five Electric
Light Arches.
In Spite of Damp Weather
Large Crowds Attended
Yesterday.
The first day of the third annual
Labor Day celebration of the Boundary, held in Phoenix yesterday, was
somewhat damp owing to occasional showers, but, notwithstanding the weather, large numbers of
excursionits arrived by special train
and private conveyances from Grand
Forks, Republic, Eholt, Midway and
Greenwood. The Greenwood band
furnished excellent music during the
day.
The following were the results in
the horse races:
Free for all, one-quarter mile—
Easter Lily, owned by J. F. Royer,
of Grand Forks, took first money;
Mollie, owned by Kenneth McLean,
of Midway, was second, and Grey
Eagle, owned by D. Donnelly, of
Greenwood, third.
Saddle horse race—Brick, owned
by J. F. Royer, of Grand Forks,
first; Ribbon, owned by H. Watson,
of Phoenix, second.
Pony race—Rose first, Mollie second.
In the rock drilling contest, Geo.
and James Foulds, of Greenwood,
carried off the $100 prize, making
31 5-16 inches in 15 minutes; H.
Branish and E. L. Brown, of Phoenix, were second with 25 inches.
The sirjgle hand drilling contest
was won by Chas. Sanborg, of Phoenix, who made 11 inches in 10 minutes.
The 100 yards dash was won by
H. A. Munroe, of Phoenix.
The 100 yards fat man's race was
won by C. H. Flood, of Phoenix,
with O'Neill, Phoenix, second.
Today's events include hose reel
races, wet test and hub and hub, in
which Grand Forks, Greenwood and
, Phoenix teams are entered. The
f log-rolling contest, a novel event in
this section, will also be held, besides a long list of Caledonian
sports.
The Phoenix Tradgj Li
council gave a largely
very enjoyable dance in Miners'
Union hall last night.
The street decorations were very
handspme, and the city presented
a very pretty appearance in its holiday attire.
The city was brilliantly illuminated last night by five large electric
light arches.
The new high school was opened
in the pnblic school building this
morning with an initial enrollment
of fifteen students. George Clark,
M.A., late of the Nelson public
fcehool', assumed the principalship.
.Mr. Clark is a graduate of Queen's
University, Kingston, Ont. Speak-
of his appointment the Nelson News
says: "Mr. Clark has been a
teacher in the Nelson school for the
past foUr years, and has always
been well liked by both the teaching staff and the scholars. His departure from the city will be regretted by his many friends, who,
however, will be glad to learn of his
well merited promotion."
The Ladies of the Maccabees
dedicated the new banquet room in
Odd Fellows' hall last Friday night
by giving a delightful social to the
members of the Knights of Pythias
and Odd Fellows and their families,
as a recognition of kindnesses shown
the order in connection with the late
union excursion to Loon lake.
About 100 guests were present The
evening was devoted to parlor games
aud progress whist. Miss Carter
won the first prize for ladies, and
W. B. Bower the gentlemen's first
prize, while the booby prize was
captured by Arthur Napper. The
evening's entertainment was wound
up with a cake walk, in which H.
A. Sheads and Mrs. Murray were
the successful pedestrians, winning
the cake with flying colors. R&
freshments were served.
The Grand Forks Riding Liberal
Association held a short meeting at
Phoenix yesterday. It was decided
to place a candidate in the field at
once.
About 75 Grand Forks citizens attended the Labor day celebration in
Phoenix yesterday. There should
have been a larger turnout, but the
damp and threatening weather
doubtless kept many at home who
would otherwira have attended.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 190
The Sun will lie sent to new subscribers from now until after the
provincial elections for 25 cents.
The political sensation of the past
week was the announcement, made Saturday night, that the date for holding
the provincial elections had been
changed from the 31st to the 3rd of
October, thus shortening the campaign by four weeks. Local politicians generally condemn this unprecedented and high-handed procedure
on the part of the present government,
and the prediction is freely made ihat,
instead of proving a benefit to Dick
McBride and his crew, as intended,
it will prove a boomerang and engulf
them in utter defeat. The change
was undoubtedly made as a last desperate resource to openly manipulate
the coming elections, and so snatch a
verdict from a surprised electorate,
but when the votes are counted on the
night of the 3rd of next month Premier McBride will find that people of
British Columbia are too intelligent
to be hoodwinked by trickery and
dishonorable methods.
baser sort in the past, says the Nelson
News, but the effort to snatch a verdict from the people overtops anything
that has so far been attempted. It
should surely convince all open-
minded electors of the impossibility
of obtaining anything approaching
stable government from the provincial
Conservative darty as it is nowframed,
and should result in a sweeping victory for the Liberals, to whom alone
the people of this province can now
look with confidence.
As Juggler Dick has shortened the
campaign by four weeks, let's make it
warm enough te keep him warm for a
weeks after he receives the frest that
awaits him on the 3rd of October.
After all, Richard the Juggler is
quite magnanimous. He has relieved
the province of four weeks of his
wise (?) administration.
It appears that Richard can juggle
with election dates as well as with the
people's coal lands.

sessinent aud taxation; be it,   therefore,
Resolved, by the Grand Forks Liberal Association, that an early repeal
is demanded of the Railway Assessment Act and of the Municipal
Clauses Act, in so far as these acts
either limit or wholly exempt railway
companies in regard to taxation; and'
we call for a readjustment of the assessment laws of the. province upon a
basis that will ensure fair and equitable taxation of all persons and cor-
porations.-
Et now looks very much as if the
Victoria government were engaged in
the disruptablc occupation of sending
out fake press dispatches tending to
influence the electors in favor of
the political jugglers at the capital.
The yarn published in last Sunday's
dailies, stating that the premier had
suddenly become enamored of James
J. Hill, and that he would help the
Great Northern to construct a network of lines from one of the province
to the other, was good, viewed from a
fairy tale standard of literature, hut
people who'know Juggler Dick only
smiled incredulously when they read
it. Every knows that the C. P. R.
owns the premier, and that the dispatch iu question was sent out with
the object of catching a few votes in
districts that would be benefited by
the advent of Mr. Hill's road.

At a meeting of the Grand Forks
Liberal Association the following
resolution, moved by L. P. Eckstein
and seconded by P. T, McCallum,
was passed:
Whereas, The system of taxation.
within British Columbia under existing laws.and methods is inequitable,
inasmuch as discrimination is made
by statute and otherwise in favor of
railway and other rich corporations
and individuals; and
Whereas, It is enacted by Section
4 of the Railway Assessment Act,
passed in the year 1894, as follows:
"The land occupied and claimed as the
right of way for railroads by railway
companies, and other lands occupied
by the railway company for station or
engine house, or freightNjheds or other
buildings connected witii\the actual
operation of the railway, including the
rolling stock, shall be assessed as a
whole at the rate of-three thousand
dollars per mile of truck (including
sidings) of the railway company situate within the province, and within
the limits of any incorporated municipality;" and y
Whereas, It is further enacted Institute: "That no municipality incorporated after the 21st of February,
1895, shall assess any kind occupied
and claimed by a railway company as
thc railroad right of way, or occupied
for railroad stations, engine houses,
freight sheds, railroad buildings, sidings, or any of the personalty, property'Of the company, including stock
or equipment] and the same shall not
be subject to municipal taxation ;"and
Whereas, This total exemption
from taxation of railway property
within municipalities, and almost
practical exemption from taxation
without municipalities, as aforesaid, is
unfair and unjust, more especially in
those cases where liberal aid by subsidy, always exceeding the limit of assessment so fixed hy statute, has been
granted; and
Whereas, Thc financial straits of
the province are in a great measure
due te exception from proper taxation
of railways and other rich . corporate
and individual interests, wjueli^irj

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 travei rig on
the 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 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 guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing tho continent can be found
than, is provided by these excursions.

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
An important deal was made last
week for a property in Wellington
camp, owned by John Farrell, formerly knpwn as the Edith L. Fraction, but afterwards relocated as the
Jack Pot Fraction. The property
adjoins the Athelstan, which has
been working and shipping steadily
for some three months, with results
that ara said to be quite satisfactory
to those in charge. The details of
the transaction are not given out,
but it is understood that it involves
a sum close to $ 15,000, which is
practically paid in cash for the property. The purchasers are the people who recently took hold of the
Athelstan, including the Sunset
smelter owners, W. T. Hunter of
Greenwood, G. H. Collins and
others. The property is already being worked by fhe Athelstan people,
with Geo. H. Collins as manager and
David Oxley as foreman. A force
of seven or eight was set to work on
the Jack Pot last week, and shipment will he made to the Sunset
smelter at any early date. Last May
a phenomenal strike was made on
the Jack Pot owing to the uprooting
of a tree by a stortn. Farrell at once
set at work on the claim, and soon
had the ledge stripped for '100 feet,
showing ore the entire distance of a
good shipping grade. Tests showed
that it contained values of some #11
per ton, with a high percentage of
iron—something that .the smelters
are always after in this section, and
which they generally want pretty
badly. Farrell has owned and
worked claims in Wellington camp
for nearly ten years, and at last has
made one of them pay well.—Phoenix Pioneer.
Manager Plewman, of the Winnipeg, says he expects to begin shipments on a small scale in the course
of ten days, and that he has 200
tons now broken down. The ore
will go to the Sunset smelter at
Boundary Falls.
Contractor Fisher, of this city,
went up to Phoenix last week to arrange for hauling about 1000 tons of
Grey Eagle ore to the head of the
tamway on Knob Hill claim.
There are now about eighty men
employed at thc Mother Lode mine,
and more are being added to thc
force.
At the Oro Denoro and Emma
mines, in Summit camp, there are
at present about 40 men at work.
JJA payment was made by David
M^Vicker and others last week on
the bond on the Gold Finch. The
interests taken over consisted of
seven-eighths.
• The Snowshoe mine broke all former records last week for shipping
ore, and the property is in splendid
shape for keeping up the record, or
beating it, for a long time to come.
The annual meeting of tbe directors of the Winnipeg mine will be
held on Tuesday, October 6th, at the
mine, when some local men who
have   lately  tab
