Committee Found Mr. Blair
and Explained Matters
to Him.
Chas. Cumings and Mayor McCallum returned Wednesday from
Revelstoke, where they . went last
week as a citizens' committee to
meet Hon. A. G. Blair, minister
of railways, on his way to the^oast,
and to endeavor to persuade him
to call an early meeting of the
railway committee to consider the
injunction cases which now prevent
the V., V. & E. from building into
this city and to the Granby smelter.
At Revelstoke the committee was
augmented by the addition of Mr.
J. B. Henderson, oj this city, but
who is at present located in the
former city, where he is superintending the erection of the new
public school building, of which he
is the architect. Concerning the success of the mission of the committee
Mr. McCallum spoke as follows to
an Evening Sun reporter:
"W^ found it very difficult to
find trace of Mr. Blair. After waiting two days at Revelstoke, we, accompanied by Mr. J. B. Henderson,
went east as far as Glacier to meet
him. When Mr. Blair finally did
come along, he received the committee cordially, and we had an interview with him On his private car
lasiing an hour and a half, during
which time we thoroughly exhausted
all the arguments in favor of the
crossing being allowed. We gave
Mr. Blair to understand that we
were not representing any railroad,
but making a positive demand for
the rights of the people. We assured him that we voiced the opinions and sentiments of not less than
9J per cent of the people of the
Boundary country. After spending
an hour in presenting arguments in
support of our contention, Mr. Blair
expressed himself as being much
surprised that the matter had never
been properly presented to him and
the railway committee before. He
ventured no other excuse for the injustice perpetrated on the people of
the Boundary by not allowing the
crossing, except that the committee
did mot understand the situation.
He gave us every encouragement
that his position would permit, and
promtsed to call a meeting of the
committee as soon as he got home."*
But after discussing the importance
of immediate action, he agreed  to
have his deputy call a meeting at
once, which he did by wiring from
the next station."
COLUMBIA CITY COUNCIL
The Columbia city council met
Tuesday evening. In the absence
of Mayor McCallum, Acting Mayor
Cupson presided.
Mr. A. Miller reported that he
had sold $6500 worth of Columbia
city debentures, and asked for the
necessary authority to have them
turned over to him, which was
granted. -
#The bill from Geo. Chappie of
$294. H4 for 5460 pounds of pig lead
was ordered paid. Also bill of E.
Spraggett for balance on account of,
$100 for repairs to bridge.
Aid. Disney was instructed to
have all necessary repairs mada to
the bridge.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
One of the old-timers in Grand
Forks is authority for the statement
that the water in the North Fork is
lower now than ever before, in his
experience.
A. E. Young this week moved
into his new house just erected in
the North addition.
Up to this morning, seventy-one
round-trip ticket had been sold at
the Great Northern office to Grand
Forks people for the Interstate fair
at Spokane.
THE PEOPLE'S FORUM
Grand Forks, Oct. 7, 1902.
Editor Evening Sun :
Dear Sir—Permit me, through
your eolunms, to make clear the position which I take in regard to a
matter which has been briefly reported in the press. I refer to a
resolution ordered passed at a special meeting, or caucus, of the city
counil on Sept. 30, asking that J.
K. Johnson be retained in office. I
may say that a member of the legal
profession approached me on that
day and advised me that the mem-
bers of the Bar association would
forward a resolution to the attorney-
general urging the necessity of making a new appointment for the small
debts court, and he wished the council to co-operate with them. At first
sight I considered the move hasty
and ill-advised, and said so to the
acting mayor, who was of the same
opinion, and thereupon called a.cau-
cus of the council for that afternoon,
at which a resolution was passed
that the acting mayor and the city
solicitor Be instructed to draw up a

resolution asking that J. K. Johnson be retained until after amalgamation. I did not think that this
could in any way harm the city.
On the contrary, I considered that
it would possibly be to the city's
advantage not to have any change
of judge until after that date. In
the resolution as finally drawn up
and read at the last meeting of the
council, there was no time limit
stated, and for that reason I was not
in favor of its ratification. And I
wish it distinctly understood that in
no sense when authorizing the passing of the resolution at the caucus
did I consider that I was acting as
representing the citizens as a whole,
but was merely endeavoring to
counteract the action of the Bar association, which I considered hasty,
ill-timed and premature. Yours
truly, Jeffery Hammar.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1902.
T
F. H. Forest, government inspector of railways, was in the city this
week to inspect the Hot Air railway
between here and Carson. It is now
in order for the Dominion inspector
of canals to come out fiom Ottawa
to inspect our new ditch whi'h
drains the slough water into the river.
KEEP ON AGITATING.
Tue committee sent from Grand
Forks and Columbia to Revelstoke to
interview Hon. A. G. Blair, minister
of railways, accomplished its well, as
may be seen by reference to our
news columns. The successful mission of the gentlemen who represented the two cities has put a decidedly brighter phase on the railway
situation of the Boundary, and already the business interests of the
community have received the stimulus of new hope in anticipation
of a favorable decision to the V., V?
& E. and an early resumption of
railroad construction.
If the railway committee, which
meets at Ottawa on the 24th inst.,
hands down a decision setting aside
thei nj unction cases that now block
the further progress of the V., V. &
E., it is quite certain that the spurs
to the city and the smelter would be
rushed to completion this fall. It
is also probable that work would be
commenced on the branch to the big
mines at Phoenix. All this'construction work would create a large
payroll, and a great deal of the
money would be spent with our
merchants. This would doubtless have -a tendency to relieve
the present depression in trade.
Bnt the greatest benefit to be derived from such a course would be
the competition for passenger and
freight traffic offered our citizens by
two transcontinental railways. This
would be a permanent advantage,
and it involves thc principle for
which we have been contending during the past year.
Although the present outlook is
bright, it wonld be sheer foolishness
for the people to fall back and rest
on their oars. The opposition to the
road is aggressive, and fighting all
the time. It therefore behooves its
friends to follow the same course.
The good work accomplished by the
Revelstoke committee might, and
probably will, count for naught if
we now drop back into inaction.
It has been suggested—and the
suggestion appears to be a wise one—
by a number of our leading business
men, that public meetings of the
citizens be held, in order to back up
the advantage gained by passing
strong resolutions and forwarding
them to the railway committee at
Ottawa. Thus plan appears to be a
very sensible one. It would keep
the issue alive, and would surely
end in victory. It should be
adopted.
The Hot Air railway is building
a track to connect their new coal bin
with their roundhouse, built a year
or so ago. Its object has not yet
been stated—whether to move the
entire outfit into the roundhouse for
cold storage during the winter, or to
move the roundhouse into the coal
bin to be used as fuel for future
operations, if operations are ever begun.   Time alone will fell.
Rumor has it that Mayor Holland
will return to Grand Forks the latter
part of next week. He certainly is
entitled to a "warm" reception.
In the states they call Bryan the
Democratic Tracy, implying that he
is the assassin of his own party. In
Grand Forks we have a railroad
Tracy.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The water in Smelter lake has
raised sufficiently of late to allow
No. 4 furnace, which has been closed
down the past week, to resume operations, probably tomorrow. Two
furnaces and the converter plant
will therefore be working both shifts,
as well as the twoWmple mills one
shift. Rumors are thick as to the
starting time of the entire plant,
upon the completion of the power
line, the knowing ones coufidently
stating the date to be not later than
one month hence.
Chas. McAllister, the contractor,
has returned from Rossland. He
couldn't stay away.
A Victoria dispatch says : "Hon.
Mr. Blair was waited upon by the
Victoria board of trade Wednesday
night, and he said he had a conversation with Mr. Hill, in which the
Great Northern magnate led him to
believe that he was not only interested in the V., V. & E., but was
ready to carry it forward energetically when the present depression
in the United States money market
was. passed, which Mr. Hill regarded
as only temporary. He was led to
believe also that he would build
without asking any aid from the
government. Mr. Blair left Thursday morning for San Francisco, and
from there goes direct to Ottawa."
It is reported that J. W. Holland,
of the Stratton-Holland-Coffey financial firm, of Toronto, will arrive in
Grand Forks early next week to look
into the affairs of their many and
diversified interests in and around
Grand Forks, which may or may
not require looking into.
Street improvements are still going on in Grand Forks. Four crosswalks have recently been built un
der the supervision of the chairman
of the board of works. The
city team is also being kept busy
hauling material for filling in the
low places.
John C. Eden, general western
traffic manager of the Great Northern ; H. A. Jackson, general freight
and passenger agent of the Spokane
Falls & Northern railway, and R. C.
Dillingham and Henry Carstens, of
Seattle, were in town this week. They
inspected the Granby smelter, and
then proceeded to Republic, where
they gathered data regarding the
prospective tonnage of that camp.
Wm. Downie, superintendent of
the Nelson-Miday division of tfie C.
P. R., is in the city. A rumor has
it that he came to see what improvements are needed in the yard
at this place. But Mr. Downie appears to keep very close to Inspector of Rai lways Forest, who is here
to look over the four-mile Hot Air
tramway.
Next Sunday, at Knox Presbyterian church, Rev. J. R. Robertson,
B.A., will take for his morning subject, "Personal Interest"; evening,
"Immortality in the Light of the
Old Testament."
Chas. Peterson, of the Square
hotel, is in Princeton.
Chief of Police McMillan is enjoying his annual vacation, and is
taking in the Spokane fair. During
his absence Jim McArdle, of the
night force, acts as chief. H. F. Mackenzie is his substitute. Upon the
chief's return Policeman McArdle
will have his holidays.

I 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 pass-
ing 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 the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

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 the Kettle river with the maiu Kettle
river, and is distant about 800 miles east of Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Lighti and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed*!. September. The electric light syst m 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
Are. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
abeautlf ul spring of exceptional purity.
J*
The natural situation of the city for beauty Is not exoelled
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 pioturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, whleh was constructed
by the Canadian Paolflo Railway oompany, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Viotora * Eastern Railway oompany, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway oompany has large interests in the oity, 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 Canada-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 af
fertile agricultural laud, part of whioh is now being cultivated, a
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surroiiudlng Columbia,
divided into small frtiit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material Is plnutljral in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and 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 city, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter-the most modem
aud perfect plant of the kind iu America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
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 finally allied and wedded to her sister oity,
will be the best  and largest oity in .the 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 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

MINES AND MINING
For the first nine months of this
year ore shipments from Boundary
mines were distributed by months
as follows:
TONS
January  29,849
February  33,708
March  41,780
April  54,485
May  53,488
June  43,064
July 31,127
August  16,324
September  43,582
Total 347,404
It will be noticed that for some
time the lowest record, as was to be
expected, was in August, when little shipping was being done from
t e [argest mines—the Granby properties and the Mother Lode. If the
average of fiVpril and May is maintained for the balance of the year,
the total output will be considerable
over 500,000 tons for the year.
In point of volume the leading
shipping mines for the nine months
were as follows: Granby mines,
234,000 tons; Mother Lode, 88,000
tons; Snowshoe, 7000 tons; Sunset,
5000 tons; B. C. mine, over 5000
tons; and a few others with lesser
amounts.
At present the three smelters in
the Boundary are running with four
furnaces in blast, viz: the Granby at
Grand Forks, the Mother Lode at
Greenwood, and the Sunset at
Boundary Falls. The total number
of furnaces ready to be blown in is
seven, and this number is to be augmented by at least five more, each
of the present reduction works increasing the capaeity of the respective plants, when the total capacity
of Boundary smelters will be about
5000 tons daily.
The Le Roi at ■ Rossland is now
shipping $50 ore to the Northport
smelter. This does not represent
the values of the entire output by
any means, but as a conservative
estimate of the average values found
in the ore being stoped in the Peyton tunnel, one of the old workings
ofthe mine originated by Col. Peyton, now of Spokane. A small
vein outcrops northwest of the main
shafthouse, and under Col. Peyton's
regime a small amount of work was
done on the ledge, which is regarded as a stringer to the main ore
body. About 10 tons of ore were
mined and the drift was then discontinued. Recently the present
management resumed the exploration of the ledge with most satisfactory results. The ore is a mixture of chalcopyrite and pyrites,
carrying $40 to $70, principally in
gold. Shipments have been started,
and it is expected that three cars of
this high-grade ore will be shipped
each month in future.
On and after September 15th the
following prices will prevail at the
0. K. Barber Shop, Riverside Ave.:
Hair cut, 35c; shave 15c.
Spring Chickens wanted at the
Clarendon Restaurant.
