No. 186
Construction Work Will Be
Begun This Fall on Mr.
Hill's Railway.
, Wednesday noon James II. Kennedy, chief engineer of the V., V
& 15;, and A. M; Lupfer, Chief locating engineer nT the Great .North;
ern, left for Midway, from which
city they will make a reconnaissance of the V., V. & K. to the
coast, near Vancouver. The distance from Midway to tide water
by the proposed route is estimated
ut i'00 miles. Thev will cover most
of this (lis ance <m foot and
horseback. They will seek a pass
across the Hope mountains via a
■; tributary of the Skagit river, at a
point immediately north of the international boundary. On reaching
the coast a corps of engineers will bo
sent out to make the location surveys.
Construction will probably be
commenced this fall at both ends of
the road. It is understood that a
link will have to be built from Curlew Midway. It is also reported
that the Great Northern intends to
build a branch line extending from
the Okanagan river to thc boundary
line south through the Okanagan
valley to the main line at Wenatchee
on the Columbia river.
During Mr. Kennedy absence his
office in this eity will be open in
charge of Mr. Hale. Mr. Lupfer
was the locating engineer of the
main line.
GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
At the.(irand Forks council-meeting, Monday night, Aid. Sheads
stated that he believed the question
of the deeds for the property covered
by the proposed extension of Bridge
'street was getting along nicely, and
that they would be signed on Mayor
11 ol la n's return. Me asked if the
city had a deed to the pumping
station, and was informed that Mr.
Miller had it. The eity clerk stated
that the only deeds in his possession were those of the city hall
ground and the dumping ground.
Acting Mayor Harvey instructed him
to get the deed to the pumping station and deposit same in the safe.
Aid. Hammar wanted to know what
the labor cost on one of the crossings. He staJgtLthijk at axrossing
near  tl
plunks, which he thought excessive.
Aid. Harvey explained that they
had to cut some other pieces and
place them underneath, besides laying the flanks, but said he would
look into the matter. Aid. Hammar
then proceeded to make enquiries
anent the eity electrician. He did
not see why the eity should pay him
$100 a month for the short time he
apparently put in for the city, as he
was running the business of undertaker and electrician on his own account. He wanted to know whether
the stock used by Mr. White was
the same as that used by the city,
and was informed by Aid. Sheads
that the material used in city work
was not suited for inside work, and
vice rend. H.e then wanted to know
why the eity could not go into business and do all the electric work,
and he was informed by the same
gentleman that that plan had been
tried here, as well as in other cities,
and had proved a failure. Mr. Ham:
mar then referred to a resolution
that had been passed at his instigation some time ago, but had never
been acted on, viz: that all goods
ordered by the city should be ordered by vouchers, so that a cheek
could be kept on everything ordered.
He stated that at present whenever
any of the city employes wanted
anything they just went and, got it,
and then when the bills were presented it was just a question of
memory when the items were
cheeked off. He said it was no reflection On the honesty on either the
employes or the tradesmen, but it
was simply a ^business proposition
that he wanted carried out. The
aldermen were there to represent the
city, and they shou)d most certainly
use every reasonable to see that the
funds were expended correctly.
They must not imagine that it was
sufficient that they as individuals
knew all about each item; the public had a right to know as well, and
the only way this could be done was
by keeping a system of vouchers for
each article ordered. The city clerk
informed the council that order
forms, etc., were being ordered with
the books for use in the new year.
After some discussion as to the best
means of working the voucher system, it was decided that eaeh committee and the eity clerk should
give orders for the goods required
for its department, and the city
clerk was instructed to procure half
a dozen stub books for that purpose.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 1902.
We are reliably informed that
.there has been a substantial reduction in freight rates from thc east to
Orand Porks since the entry of the
V., V. & E. into the city. The passenger fare to coast points has also
been lowered. It has been a favorite argument of thc opponents of'Mr.
Hill's road that the business men
and people generally would derive
no material benefit from railway
competition. It's a pity that some
scheme can't be devised whereby
the old rates could be charged these
illogical ratiocinators.
A special from Ottawa states that
J. N. Greenahields, solicitor for MacKenzie & Mann, and M. Norman
McLean and D. G. MacDonnell, of
Vancouver, are arranging with the
government regarding the proposed
Coast-Kootenay railway. It is stated
that MacKenzie & Mann, who have
a charter for the same route, previously purchased from Vancouver
parties, have withdrawn their opposition to McLean Brothers. With
MacKenzie & Mann the Great North-
em is acting, and Mr. Greenshields
claims that they have a bona fide
intention of building the line. The
withdrawal of opposition to the new
plan of McLean Brothers is said to
be due to an understanding arrived
at between all the parties to the
effect that the line will be built as a
Great Northern proposition by McLean Brother backed locally by
MacKenzie & Mann. The line will
also have direct connection with the
Crow's Nest, where President Hill is
1 irgely interested.
MEETING OfPRESBYTERY
The semi-annual meeting of the
Presbytery of the Kootenays opened
in Knox Presbyterian church, Grand
Forks, Tuesday afternoon, Rev.
.1. H. Robertson, B.A., moderator,
presiding. Sessions were held daily
until last night, when the meeting
closed.
The members present were: Rev.
Dr. Wright and Rev. Messrs. Mc-
Coll, Fortune, Dunn, Ball, Robb,
McBee, Purdy, Craw, McRae, Robertson and Young. The Rev. Dr.
McRae, late principal of Morin college, Quebec, and Rev. Mr. Callder
were asked to sit and correspond.
Arrangements were made for
lie   induction   of   Rev. Mr. Purdy
G
The M. P. for Yale-Cariboo
Talks on Various Vital
Subjects.
On Wednesday evening Mr. W.
Galliher, M. 1'. for Yale-Cariboo, was
in town, and was interviewed by
some of his friends in the parlor of
the Yale, lie stated that he was
making a hurried trip, and had not
had time to notify the citizens
of his coining. He hoped, however,
to make another trip very shortly,
when he would send word ahead so
that every one would know he was
coming, and would then have a
chance of speaking to thc public.
He then gave a short account of
his stewardship at Ottawa, and said
he would be glad to hear from any
of those present who had anything
to say. In answer to enquiries from
Mr. A. Miller, he stated that this
district is entitled to at least two
members, but that even if the redistribution bill is passed it will not affect us until thej'next general election. With regard to the grant for
public buildings, he suggested that
perhaps it would be better to wait
for a while. However, that was a
matter for us to consider, and if we
decided to put the matter before
him, he would take much pleasure,]
in laying our claim as strongly as he
could before the house, and get as
large a grant as he could; but he did
not think it wise to ask for a larger
grant than would be necessary for
such a building as the city requires.
He suggested that we present the
matter in writing, and set out in
facts and figures to shi^w why we are
entitled to this building-, so that he
would be able to lay the same be-
fure the minister.
With regard to the formation of a
rihV,corps here, he stated that the
minister of militia hail informed
him that then; were already the
full number of companies in the
present brigade, so that it was impossible to form a company either
here or at Greenwood at present,
In reply to Mr. P. T. McCallum,
who asked him what stops were being taken to remove the railroad injunction, Mr. Galliher replied that
the first intimation of the state of
affairs he had was on his return; he
had not received any intimation as
to how the people felt about it till
then. However, he had then written to the minister of railways stating that the people in this district
were very anxious to have the matter settled; that all they wanted was
railway competition, and asking him
to do what he could in the matter.
He did not know why the judgment
was delayed, unless because of   the
swer the same purpose, and would
not meet with the same opposition
as would thc ereationof another
salaried post. We should place ourselves in communication with the
different boards of trade in British
Columbia, and also in different parts
of Canada, with a view to obtaining
their support and co-operation in
this matter. He for his part would
do all in his power to bring it about.
Regarding the question of better
postal facilities, he had gone into the
matter very thoroughly with the
controller, and the matter is progressing very well, and he will communicate shortly with Mr. Muloek
again. ( ,
With regard to the mining laws,
he stated that the province has the
exclusive right to legislate.
Mr. Dobererthen expressed a wish
to have a protective duty levied on
natural products (fruit, hay, vegetables, etc.) from the other side, but
Mr. Galliher, and apparently all
those present, were opposed to such
a ster.
The meeting then closed, after'
passing a vote of thanks to Mr. Gal- \
liher and expressing a wish to meet I
him at an early date. ;

been visiting their daughter, Mrs.

John A. Manly, chief engineer f j
the Hot Air road, has a high sense
of humor. In a recent interview
with a Spokexwun-Revirir reporter;
he adduced the following extenuating reasoning for disposing of his
ranch to the Great Northern at a
very profitable figure: "As I have
been accused of Holding up President Hill, I do nofiwind telling unreal motives in that deal. I have
been engaged in funning in a small
way for several years in the Kettle
River valley and, until the Great
Northern deal came up, owned 8000
acres of fine agricultural land. When
such a noted man as President Hill,
wdio is unquestionably the greatest
railroad financier the world hasrvcr
Seen, opened negotiations with me
to'purchase some of my land, I was
induced to part with 1000 ac.ies for
the paltry sum of $50;000, solely because I thought it would .do more to
advertise our agricultural resources
than any department of agricultural
report that ever was written. 1 felt
that when the world knew that
President Hill, who is somewhat of
a fanner himself, was wiling to pay
850,000 for a British Columbia farm,
it would realize that we have something besides mining to offer the investor and homeseekor.''

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
Advanced.
The Oity of Columbia is situated near the jnnotion 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 modem 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
tire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
; The natural situation of the oity for beauty Is no* 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 picturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia 4 Western railway, whioh was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway oompany, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards In the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Viotora A Eastern Railway company, 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 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 the year around, is the best iu Canada—part of the summer is rather hot and dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
J*
Throughout the Kettle River valley there is an 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.
Building material ia plentiful iu the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick time and stone of good
finality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests urfiof the tirst Importance to this
country, and will do lunch to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the inouiitains
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 modern
and perfect plant of the kind In America—employing hundred! of men, ia contiguous to the city.
Owing to the line climate, the central situation, the
lieiiutihle 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 city,
will ha the  best  and largeta^H^in^^heJnterior. 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,-
(XX) on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum

TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The lacrosse match between the
Buffers and Duffers, at the athletic
park Wednesday, was won by
the former team by a score of 2 to 1.
From a farcical standpoint the game
was a decided success, as it proved to
be a series of comedies of errors
—just what the promoters intended
it should be. Fortunately but one
man—Coolgardie Smith—was disabled. He received an ugly cut on
the head, which dazed him for a few
moments, but he took the accident
good naturedly, and the attending
physician, after a hasty examination, issued a bulletin in which he
expressed the opinion that the man
would live. But Smith was put in
a state of innocuous desuetude during the remainder of the game. Of
course there were good individual
plays, but they occured at distant intervals, and from unexpected sources, and the sun was
eclipsed by a cloud of dust at the
moment they were made. For these
reasons we are unable to give credit
where credit is due. But the players accomplished their object—they
amused the spectators. When the
fact is taken into consideration that
business was suspended during the
progress of the game, the attendance
was not as large as it should have
been. The proceeds will be devoted
to charitable purposes.
In a house on Winnipeg avenue a
gramophone occasionally renders a
few choice selections. The Sun man
has often heard it while on his way
home late at night. The other night
while passing the house he met an
old Irishman, and when directly
opposite the house the talking machine commenced singing a lively
Irish song. The man stopped to
listen for a few moments, and then
said, contemptuously: "Begorra,
that's a foine song, but the mon
should get the crack in his voice
mended."
The excursionists to the Curlew
lake picnic, over the Hot Air road
last Sunday, say they would have
enjoyed thc trip much more if there
had been a few lesj bars to take
down and put up.    sP
Mr. Henry White returned Wednesday morning from a three weeks'
trip through the Okanagan and
