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 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

shoe, Phoenix, 780 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 4544' tons; Sunset, Deadwood, 560 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 750 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 510 tons; total
for past week, 11,686 tons; total for
1902, 395,495.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 3363 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 225,172 tons.
Last week the Mother Lode made
shipments of over 4500 tons, the
largest in any one week since the
mine began shipping.
Returns from the last shipment of
15£ tons from the Providence mine
to the Trail smelter gave $1,796.38,
or 8130 per ton. The next shipment is expected to give $150 or
better per ton.
A force of 117 men is now cm-
ployed at the Mother Lode mine.
The Sunset needs only 14 men to
get out the requisite amount of ore,
so easily is it broken down.
Col. William Ridpath, of Spokane, wss in the city last week, after
inspecting the Lucille Dreyfus mine,
situated near Nelson, Wash. He
stated that with the aid of his associates he had secured a majority of
the stock in the company, and that
a new board, animated with progressive ideas, would be elected at
the forthcoming annual meeting.
He has a high opinion of the property, and says there is a large tonnage of $14 ore in sight, with values
in gold, copper and silver, in the
order named. He says systematic
development work by means of a
working shaft will be undertaken.
He does not favor the plan of tun-'
neling, hitherto pursued.
Some of the new machinery being
installed by the Granby company
for the improved equipment at the
Phoenix mines, which will cost over
$100,000 when installed and in running order, has begun to arrive.
Last week two carloads of the first
half of the electric driven compressor reached Phoenix, and more is
expected daily. The cars already
on the ground contain the immense
fly-wheel, a receiver and some fittings.
The Snowshoe will use the power
from Cascade as soon as it can be
delivered, an arrangement having
been made to that effect.
The Cariboo, in Camp McKinney,
is to declare a dividend next month
of 2i per cent, the first in a year
from this old dividend payer. It is
said tlmt the company has $125,000
in the treasury.
Several offers have been made for
the Ruby, located near the Sunset
smelter, which shipped 85.,' tons of
excellent ores last year, but whose
owners got into fiuancial difficulties.
The debts of the Waterloo, Camp
McKinney, have been paid, and the
property is again to be actively
worked.

That James J. Hill, of the Great

Grand Forks through to the coast
by way of the Similkameen seems
pretty well assured from the amount

Hon. J. I. Tarte, minister of
public works, »is. reported in an Ontario speech as having stated that he
was opposed to the American railroads coming into Canada and getting a monopoly. If the worthy
minister and his followers will come
out here and get a near-by view, they
will surely change this opinion. The
advent of the American roads into
the Boundary will break up—not
build up—a monopoly, and give
competition in freight and passenger traffic.

Mr. White had a conversation recently with Mr. E. Charles, right of

expressed the opinion so often
voiced by other officials of the road
lately, viz., that the Great Northern

is quashed.

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
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 care,
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.

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 Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, aud will be
completed in September. The electric light syst m will in-
elude street are lamps. The waterworks system Is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all present aud future
needs, and Insuring ample protection from the ravagos of
fire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
jA
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 aud surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesuuesness aud grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards In the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has
looated its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
jA
The Canadian Paolfle 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 tbe year around, Is the best in Canada-part ol the summer Is rather hot and dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there Is au extent af
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 fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population. •
Building material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
duality can always be obtained when reiiuired.
JA
The mining Interests areof the lirst importance ;to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the 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   modem
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing  hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city,
Jk
Owing to the fine climate,   the   central   situation,   the
beautlble   environments, the bright prospects  for future
growth and  prosperity, Columbia  will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when Anally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the best  and largest city tn Ithe interior. \
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 gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
business. This company has 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.

We may be slow in Columbia, but we get there
all the same; and whilst we do not sell' for cash
ONLY, we are SHARP enough to CUT prices for
SPOT 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.

COLUMBIA CITY COUNCIL
The Columbia city council met
last Tuesday evening, all the members being present, with Mayor McCallum in the chair.
A communication was read from
McDonald & Whiteside, asking the
city if it were willing to pay $1000
to have the $7500 railway aid bonds
returned and cancelled. The proposition did meet with favor, as it was
unanimously rejected.
The council decided to send a
delegate to Ottawa to attend the
meeting of the railway committee of
the privy council.
