Favors the Establishment of
?.■. High School in This
City.
Mayor Burrell presided at last
night's meeting of the city council.
The aldermen present yvere Feeney,
Caw, Martin, McCallum and McLellan.
The clerk read a letter from L. P.
Eckstein. Mr. Miller had requested
the writer to perform the duties connected with the office of city solicitor
during his absence from the city.
Mr. Eckstein placed him at the disposal of the council.
An invitation was read from the
city of New Westminster to the members of the council to attend the Royal
Agricultural Exhibition in that city
next October. The clerk was instructed to forward a suitable ac-
dnowledgement of the same.
During a discussion on the question of building porches over the entrances to the school h^use, Aid.
McLellan reiterated the statements
he made last week in opposition to
the scheme. Aid. Martin, the new
chairman of the public works committee, thought the construction of
the approaches would be a very expenses piece of work when compared
with the benefits to be derived from
them. The roof of the porches, according to the plans, would only extend two feet beyond the eaves of the
roof of the school house, and th;
danger from falling snow and ice
would not be lessened by their construction. It would cost $300 to
erect these approaches, he said; it
wouldn't cost the interest on that
amount to keep the roof of the
school house free from snow. Aid.
McCallum, while not in favor of the
contemplated improvement at the
present time, on account of the state
of the city treasury, said he wished
it distinctly understood that as soon
as our financial condition would permit it, he would heartily approve of
any stepB taken tending to enhance
the safety of the pupils and add additional i beauty to the general appearance of the school house.
The question of establishing a
high school was thoroughly discussed, and the efforts of the school
trustees in this direction were heartily endorsed by the mayor and aldermen. All agreed^
an opportune  ti:
public necessity to the city. In order to strengthen the endeavors of
the school trustees in this matter, a
resolution was drafted and unanimously passed, stating that, as the
city could fulfil all the requirements
of the law in this connection, the
time for the estalilmishment of a
high school in this city had now arrived, and promising the school
board the hearty approval and support of any action they might deem
necessary to accomplish this  object.
Aid. Caw called attention to the
fact that, as a result of lowering the
grade on the Winnipeg avenue hill.
near the Methodist parsonage, the
one-inch Water pipe would also have
to be lowered to keep it from catching cold next winter. This course
would also have to be pursued in regard to the pipe on Fourth street,
near Observation mountain, The
matter was left to the discretion of
the chairman of the water and light
committee.
Aid. Martin drew attention to the
need of grading First street, north
of Winnipeg avenue; also upper
Riverside and Wellington avenues.
Referred to public works committee,
with power to act.
Mayor Burrell, in answer to a
query from Aid. Martin, said that
all arrangements had been made for
the reception and entertainment of
the members of the Associated
Chambers of Commerce of the Empire. The delegates will arrive in
the city on the 14th and  15th hist.
Aid. Gaw casually remarked that
the smelter people didn't seem to
pay any attention to the city's protests against dumping slag in the
river.
Mayor Burrell—I think they
stopped for a short time.
Aid. Gaw—Yes, when the smelter
was closed down.
Mr. Knapp was present and asked
for a further extension of time in
which to complete the Bridge street)
bridge, advancing as a reason fur doing so his inability to get the material on the ground when promised
him. The council appeared to be
loth to grant the request, and adjourned without taking a vote on the
question. The mayor expressed the
hope that when they met again the
bridge would be completed.
The executive of the Grand Forks
branch of the Lord's Day Alliance
of Canada will meet at the Methodist parsonage, Winnipeg avenue,
Friday evening, Sept. 4th, at 8
o'clo^k^ This snaaial meeting is to
Government Inspector of Schools
A. C. Stewart, of Vancouver, arrived
in the city yesterday, and at once
begun to investigate the advisability
of the establishment of a high school
in Grand Forks. Mr. Stewart is
favorably impressed with our claims
for such an institution of learning,
and last night he informed the
school trustees that he would make
a recommendation to the government favoring the opening of the
school. As everybody in the city
heartily supports the project, it is
quite evident that Grand Forks will
soon become the educational centre
of the Boundary district.
The Pioneers' Association of Kettle VMley are holding a banquet at
Carson this evening. R, R. Gilpin,
thc secretary, has issued about one
hundred invitations. A jolly time

The west-bound C. P. R. passenger train was five hours late yesterday on account of the burning, Sunday night, of Porcupine bridge, east
of Bulldog tunnel. The bridge was
about 100 ft. high andj over 250 feet
long. It is estimated that it will
take fully ten days to rebuild it. In
the meantime the passenger trains
will meet at that point and transfer
passengers and baggage.
A large party of Grand Forks people will start next Thursday on a
pleasure trip to Coleman, Alia., thc
new town just started at the International Coal & Coke company's
mines, for the purpose of inspecting

The Tory papers are still criticising the Grand Trunk bargain. Compare thc salient features of the contract with the terms which were
granted to the Canadian Pacific in
the session of 1881. Twenty-five
million acres of land were granted
to the Canadian Pacific, not an acre
of land is granted to the Grand
Trunk Pacific. Twenty-five million
dollars' ware paid in cash to the Canadian Pacific, and works were
handed over to that company which
had been built by the government at
the expense of the Canadian people
at a cost of at least $35,000,000.
Therefore the cash aid given the
Canadian Pacific was in the neigh*
l.ochood of $60,000,000. The cash
smisidy which is promised, and
which is to be given under this contract to the Grand Trunk, will not
exceed $13,000,000 or thereabouts.
The nonservatives are welcome to all
the political capital they can extract
from this contract.
It is a great gift to be versatile
and" resourceful. While in the
north Premier McBride told thc natives how generally acceptable the
(Irand Trunk bjirgain was It ineanl
the development of the northern
reaches ' of th«)provinces. etc., etc.
When he got brtck to his old camping grounds he decrys the agreement and says the senate should defeat it if it has the power.
Speaking of the political situation
locally, the Conservative leaders-are
still on a "still hunt," while the
Liberal ranks are gaining new members daily, and consequently becoming more certain of a sweeping victory on the 81st of next month.
Liberal Manifesto
The new Liberal manifesto, containing a revised platform of the
party, combined with an address to
the electors of the province, has been
completed by the executive of the
Provincial Liberal Association.
Half a dozen new planks have been
inserted in the platform, but outside
of this no changes of particular iui-
iior^nce have been made to alter the
IBs _laii_diayn in the
the first addition is a plank stating
that the Liberal party in this province
strongly favors a reform in the civil
service and the existing system of appointments to public positions. This
is stated only in general terms, and
will be enlarged upon by speakers
during the campaign.
The next new plank favors the
building of a number of new trailsahd
trunk roads in different sections, especially to open outlying portions of
British Columbia.
The third new plank deals with the
necessity of introducing systems of irrigation on fanning lands of the interior and fruit lands of the Okanagan and unwatered parts of the Fraser
valley having been specially mentioned
by several of the delegates,
A fourth new plank emphasizes the
need of a short line between the coast
and Kootenay, and the value of the
results to be gained therefrom.   -
The fifth plank is strongly opposed
to the operation and continuance of
the 2 per cent mining tax.
Two other planks favor different
public works of various importance
and are stated in general terms.
The principal change noticeable in
the terms of the planks as they previously existed is in that which refers
to compulsory arbitration, and tnis is
a change more of wording than of
sentiment, in order the more closely
to fit the changing necessities in the
province.
No mention is made in the platform of the timber question, although
the matter received a thorough discussion.
There are no staatling features in
the main address to provincial Liber5
als, calling on them to give support to
the candidates chosen by conventions
for the different ridings. The name of
Mr. Joseph Martin, former Liberal
leader, is not mentioned in the address, which is finally signed by Mr.
Stuart Henderson as president and
Mr. T. S. Baxter as secretary, of the
Provincial Association.
!ui regard to leadership, the plan
outlined and for which the endorsement of the electors is asked, is that
four membtjjrs of the executive shall
call together the elected Liberals of
the House after the. election is over,
and that these members of the new
Legislature shall chose a leader.
Messrs. Stuart Henderson, T. S. Baxter, J. A. McDonald, head of Kootenay Liberals, and Wm. Sloan, organ-
izT on Vancouver island, will call together the elected members before the
session of the house is opened. Until
then no action is to be taken regarding the leadership, and present plans
do not include another meeting of the
provincial executive before the campaign has finished.

A number of former members of
the local branch of the American
Labor union, being dissatisfied with
the stand taken in putting forward
an avowed socialist as their candidate at the forthcoming provincial
election for Grand Forks riding, have
severed their connection with that
organization, and have formed a
local branch of the Dominion Trades
and Labor Congress, of which organization Thomas Foulston was
recently appointed organizer for this
district. At a recent meeting of those
interested, after the objects of the
Labor Congress had been fully explained, and a number of those present had given their views as to what
a labor union should endeavor to
secure, the local branch of the
Trades and Labor Congress was
formed, with the1 following list of
officers: President, Archie Hardy-;
vicejpresident, pro tern, Wm. Hoffman; seerettiry-trcsisurer, Benjamin
SweCzy; recording secretary, Andrew
Mcllvaine; conductor, Murdock McKenzie; correspondent, Fred Grant.
The other officers will be chosen
from employees of the other shift.
It was decided to name the new
union Grand Forks Smelterm fin's
Federal Union, Dominion Labor
Congress. The pew organization
will be-of a non-political character.
"There is nothing new under the
sun."
"Well, what of it?"
"It gives a lot of people in this
city capital excuse for their inactivity."

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service.; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

BOUNDARY MINK AND SMELTERS
The seven-drill compressor recently purchased in Rossland will
be received at the Oro Denoro mine
this week, and, as tbe concrete
foundations have already been prepared, it will be set up in a short
time. When this is done the shipments will be materially increased
from the present rate of two to four
cars daily, and the ore can be placed
on the cars more economically. The
smelter people wish to get all of this
ore available, as it is desirable for
mixing with the regular supply of
ore from other mines, making an
admirable flux. An electric light
plant is also to be installed at the
mine at an earjy date, which will
serve that property, as well as the
townsite, for lighting purposes.
From an investigation made by
Master Mechanic Fraser, of the Granby mines, a brother of the man who
was slightly hurt last week, the explosion of the two high pressure
cylinders in the new compressors
was not as serious in the way of material damage as at first anticipated,
says the Phoenix Pioneer. Some
new parts for the mammoth machines will have to come from the
makers in the east. The two compressors being duplicates, Admit of
the parts being interchangeable.
Thus it was possible last week to get
one of the 30 drill machines in order for use. In the meantime both
the old Knob Hill and Old Ironsides compressors were pressed into
service temporarily, each having a
capacity of ten drills.

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
v  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 Light and
»Waterworks Systems are dow 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
Hre. At present water is supplied the oity by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
Jt
The natural situation of the oity 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 pieturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and ytirds in the center of Columbia, and
the Tancouver, Tlctora A Eastern Railway company, has
located Its depot, freight Iheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway oompany has large Interests lu the city, having seleoted the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in Canada—part of the summer is rather hot and dry, but the rest nf
the year Is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River vnlley there is au extent ef
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.
llUlldliig material is plentiful iu the district. Lumber ran
be procured at fair prices, und brick lime and stone of good
quality can always be 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 the mountains
adjacent to the oity, and what were mere pros|>eets a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter--the most modern
and perfect ulant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of menvls contiguous to the city. j
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, at,[well as a wholesale distributing
pally allied and wedded ^ber sister city^
thai 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. Tbis 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. .). A. McCallum

Ore shipmeujts last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 4132 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 544 tons'; Enyjm,
Summit camp, 100 tons. Total,
4776 tons.
The heavy framework of the new
Granby compressor house at Phoenix is up. Some of the timbers are
12x14 inche.a and over 60 feet long.
The building will be 62x120 feet
over all. An endeavor will be made
to get it enclosed during the good
weather,
One of "the oldest high-grade
claims in the Boundary is the Skylark, in Skylark camp, [t has been
recently sampled, with good results,
with a view to being bonded.
Work at trie B. ('. mine has been
resumed with an increased force of
men, and shipments will shortly be
made to the Mother Lode smelter.
A. H. Lawder, of Greenwood, has
been appointed accountant at the
mine, and he and his family will
move there.
A. F. Goodell, superintendent of
tbe Sunset smelter, and Harry
Johns, superindent of the mine, are
expected back from Montreal this
week. As soon as they return work
will be resumed both at the smelter
and the mine. . The smelter   is   re-
•
ceiving daily shipments of coke.
The British Columbia Copper
Co.'s Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood was blown in again last Wednesday morning, after being cold for
a couple of months on account of a
coke shortage.
. A shipment from the Providence
mine to the Trail smelter recently of
87,504 pounds, or 43f tons, gave a
net return of $6,367.51, or about
$l'4o per ton.
.The exploitation of the high-grade
properties in the immediate vicinity
of the city, says the Greenwood
Times, is developing-into an industry of considerable importance. At
the ProvitleneV the force of men will
be increased and tegular shipments
will lie maintained. At the Gold
Finch, above tbe city ball, Messrs.
Sutherland and MacDohald have
two shifts of four men at work. Another ear of high-grade ore is ready
for shipment to the Trail sincltA
A tunnel is being driven into trie
hill to cross-out the vein about M0
feet below where the lirst shipment
was taken from the surface. Another lead that apparently runs at
right angles to the main vein will
also be prospected. The ore gives
high gold values and admits of easy
treatment; in fact, the smelter management sajij it is the easiest high-
grade ore to treat that wits ever received at the smelter. Twenty tons
will be sent to trail early next week.
