Grand Forks and Columbia, B. G.   Tuesday, November 4, 1902.
No. 1
The  Granby  Smelter Will
Soon be in Operation to
Its Fullest Extent.
Chief Electrician Lane, pf the
Granby smelter, went to Phoenix
yesterday for the purpose of packing up three transformers there.
They will be shipped to this city,
It will bike three of four days lie-
fore they can be laid down at the
smelter, and probably'eight or nine
days before they can be installed
and put in perfect order. Additional transformers are also being
secured from Bonnington Falls.
The Granby people confidently
announce that the smelter will be
in operation to its fullest extent inside of two weeks.
Acting Mayor Sheads presided at
last night's meeting of the (irand
Forks eity council. The aldermen
present were: Donaldson, Gaw,
1 laminar and Matheson.
t After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been approved, a number of communications of minor importance were read. The usual
number of bills wen;  ordered   paid.
Mr. Sheads then brought up the
subject of the First street bridge,
saying thai in his opinion sonic
steps should be taken 11 huve it repaired. A general discussion ensued, in which the fact wag brought
out that James Addison had made
a proposition to some of the aldermen to make the necessary repairs
and allow the cost to go on his taxes.
Tne council was unwilling to enter
into the deal blindfolded, however,
arid after thoroughly sifting ,the
mutter, a resolution was passed, on
motion of Aid. Ilamuuir, seconded
by Aid. Gaw, that Mr. Addison be
asked to submit an estimate as to
the probable cost of making the
needed repairs.
The matter of engaging an auditor
to audit the eity books was next
brought up. Mr. Colin Campbell,
who has done this work for thc corporation in past yeair, was present
at the meeting, and stated thiit be
was wiling to audit the books for
$80U; that he was ready to pledge
his w rl to have the work corny
pleted by the 9th of January next
or forfeit bis salary. Aid. Donald-j
son said the only objection he bad'
to Mr. Campbell's offer wns_the price I
he asked. The work had been
done in former years for $200, nnd
he could not see why it should cost
more this year. Mr. Campbell explained that the volume of the city's
business had increased, necessarily
entailing more work hi auditing the
additional accounts. Mr. Donaldson did not think the business had
increased one-third, and this opinion was shared by the other aldcr-
'inen. Aid. Hammar thought if
there was a man in town who was
willing to do the work for S100 less
it would be well to lay the matter
over for one week while enquiries
could be made. This course was
about to be pursued, when Mr,
Campbell arose and stated that if
the work was given to him he wished
to commence on his labors at once,
and in consideration of being allowed to do so he would reduce his
price to $250. He said that he expected to spend 40 days on the
work, and that in former years he
had saved the city more than his fee
had amounted to. The matter was
disposed of by the passage of a resolution, on motion of Aid. Donaldson, seconded by Aid. Gaw, that
Mr. Campbell be given the work of
auditing the corporation books for
the year 1902 at a fee of $250.
Aid. Hammar gave notice that at
the next meeting of the council he
would introduce an amendment to
bylaw No. 79, known as the Wash-
House Bylaw. He stated that it
was practically a new bylaw, and
that he thought it would stand the
test of the courts.
Baciiicloks' Ball—The various
committees have completed all arrangements in connection with the
.bachelors' ball, to be given at the
opera house next Friday night. A
large attendance is already assured,
as the acceptance at present exceed
seventy-five. The hull will be tastefully decorated. Supper will be
served at the Hotel Winnipeg. The
best music obtainable has been secured.
Many Visitors—The Ottawa Citizen
says: The importance of Ottawa as
the capital of the Dominion was
never more clearly demonstrated
than yesterday when the hotels were
as busy as they usually are during
the sessions of parliament. The
visitors bailed from all parts of the
Dominion. There are probably
more British Columbians in. Ottawa
today than on any previous occasion. In addition to several appeals from that province, which are
now being heard by the supreme
court, and which have necessarily
brought distinguished counsel from
the Pacific coast, the meeting of the
railway committee is accountable
for the presence of several   western

people. In past years it has been
the custom when cases arising in
distant parts of the country were before the court, or committee, to employ counsel only. In the eases before the railway committee yesterday, which had to do with railway
extensions in the Boundary district,
the twin municipalities of Orand
Forks and Columbia were determined not to take any chances.
They sent to Ottawa Mr. Charles
Cumings, one of the pioneers of
Orand Forks, and Mr. Neil Callum,
mayor of Columbia. Mr. MacNeill,
of Rossland, was also present on behalf of the Great Northern railway.
The representations of the delegates
were successful and all the applications which these gentlemen supported were granted.

With this issue The Evening Sun
takes the first step on its journey
toward thc second milestone. The
progress made during the past year,
considering the prevailing conditions
in this district, has been quite satisfactory. The paper has enjoyed a
steady growth since the first issue
was printed. A number of improvements have been made, and
others are contemplated for the coming year. Take all publications that
are not afraid to take a firm stand on
public questions, The Sun has made
staunch friends and bitter enemies.
To the former it feels grateful, and
to the latter it has no apologies to
offer. It proposes to keep up the
tight for railway competition and
progress until it wins. Lastly, thc
publisher of thc paper has faith in
the future of the twin cities. He
believes that the amalgamated cities
will at no great distant day be the
metropolis of southeastern British
Columbia. And The Sun will be
here to see this prediction verified.
It has been decided that King
Edward's birthday, November 9th,
will not be made a public holiday
in Canada, but will be officially
celebrated on Victoria day, May
24th. This move will meet with
popular approval; since November!
weather usually precludes a celebration of any sort.
11'the mayor of Grand Forks intends to make Toronto his permanent home in future, ho should have
ii private telegraph line erected between the two cities.
Not much is being said about the
new phase of the railway situation.
Everybody appear to be calm. But
a calm always precedes a storm.
The  bandwagon   is    becoming
pretty well crowded these days.
Anniversary Social — A most
successful anniversary social was
held in tbe Knox Presbyterian
church last night. The church was
almost filled with members and
their friends. After the opening
hymn and prayer a brief but interesting historical sketch was given by
Mr. K. M. Stephens, who is clerk
of tbe session. A short program
was then rendered, including a salo
by   Mrs.   W. B. Bishop, a duet by
Messrs. Ewing and Donaldson, and
an anthepi by the choir. Mr. T. H-
Ingram gave a reading and also entertained the audience with a few
good stories. Possibly the pastor's
address was enjoyed the most, for
he kept every one laughing from
start to finish. Rev. Dr. Wright
also gave an interesting address. Refreshments were served and thc
third anniversary of the church
closed with the Doxology.
Lord's Day Alliance—Tne executive of the Grand Forks branch
of the Lord's Day alliance will meet
in Knox Presbyterian church on
Thursday evening, Nov. 0.
A New Manse—Work on the
erection of the Knox ■ Presbyterian
church manse was commenced last
Saturday. The building will be
two stories in height, and is to be
finished in ninety days. The estimated cost is $2000.
Newcomers—Mr. and Mr. J. John
Bell and their two adopted children,
of Colorado Springs, Col., arrived
in Columbia last Saturday, and are
sit present stopping at the Pacific
hotel. They have purchased the
Pettijohn ranch, near Carson, and
will make that pretty place their
future home.

morning the Granby smelter adopted
a new standard of time, which is
half an hour earlier than city time.

Editor Evening Sun.
Why is an alderman of Grand
Forks allowed to dig up the roadway near Winnipeg avenue and
Fourth street in order to get good
soil to improve his garden, while
the same carryings on by a common taxpayer would receive at least
a "ten dollars or ten days"
sentence? Possibly the fact tha^the
gentleman is an alderman has a good
deal to do with the distinction.

THE RAILWAY SITUATION trackr   still stands, to- be tried at
Mr. G. H. Cowan, .counsel for die
Last summer when the Hot Air
injunction case was tried in Vancouver the news •wits sent out that
both sides had agreed to abide by
the decision of the railway committee of the privy council. This report now appetrs to have been erroneous. Tbe Vancouver Province
of last Thursday says:
Though the railway committee of
the privy council at Ottawa yesterday granted the application of the
Victoria, Vancouver A Eastern
Railway and Navigation tompany
for permission to cross the tracks of
the Grand Forks O Republic railway in the Boundarv country, the
trial ofthe matter in the courts will
not be discontinued.
This morning before the chief
justice the hearing of tbe matter
was set for the#7th of November
next, Mr. Bodwell, of Victoria, appearing for the V., V. it E., and
Mr. G. H. Cowan for the (irand
Forks & Republic railway people.
The ease, though a famous one, :s
not perhaps generally understood by
the people of British Columbia,
though it has been talked about on
thc streets and argued over in the
newspapers for months. The permission granted by the privy council, according to the plaintiff's solicitors, can grant the defendants no
powers that are not covered by their
charter. The injunction that was
granted some time ago against the
V., V. & E.  crossing the plaintiff's
A! 1.1 .      VI .       1  I.      V.V/M Ull j   »<
plaintiff, explained the position today: "Now, the V., V. & E. charter provides the line shall be built
from the Kootenay to a point on
English bay, and states that it shall
touch the international boundary
but once. There is hardly a pretence that the road between Cascade
and Carson is part of the through
line ^ to the coast, and moreover it
goes contrary to the charter in touching the boundary twice in the fifteen miles."
Mr. Bodwell, K.C., counsel for
tbe V., V. & E, was asked whether
the action of the privy counsel yesterday would affect the case. He
smiled and replied: "It all depends
iqion how the court looks at it."
■The trial-will be watched witff interest and will be bitterly fought
out. There are a number of witnesses, mostly from tho Boundary
country, and they were wired this
morning of the adjournment.
"Anyhow," said Mr. Cowan, as
he finished explaining the position
of his clients, "railway committee
or no railway committee, we still
have our injunctions."

A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
the City of Columbia is situated near the junction of
tiie North Forlis of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river,  and is distant about 800 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systemsure dow under construction, and will be
completed iu September. The electric light syst ni 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
fire. 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 not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling wu.er,
fringed with forest trees ami surrounded by mountains, form-
lug a charming combination of picturesciuesness and grandeur.
The Columbia & Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse ami yards in the center of Column^, and
the Vancouver, Victora & 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 Hues.
The Canadian Pacitle railway company has large interests in the city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as n rallwa* centre,
The climate, taken all tbe 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 »f
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated,
Apples, plums, peurs, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruits irruw abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small frtllt 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
quality can always be obtui I when required.
The milling interests ureof the lirst Importance to .this
country, and will do much to build Up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountain!
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospects u short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and  converter -the   most,   modern
and perfect plant of the kind in Americu-enclosing  hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the line climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
oentre, a city of home's, ns [well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister eity,
will be the  best  and largest city in [the interior.

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

policies have been issued by the
Imperial, running as high as $200,-

A platform is being built at the

From 40 to 50 tons of blister copper are at present being shipped
daily from the Granby smelter to
the New York refinery. It carries
about $300 per ton in gold and silver values.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 5255 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 240,493 tons.
The Grandby smelter treated two
carloads of Morning Glory (Republic) ore last week. It went $50 to
the ton.
Ore shipments last week: Granby

Four cars   each   of   Quilp and
Blacktail ore were received   at the
Granby smelter yesterday from Republic.
Two cars of Lone Pine ore arrived
at the Granby smelter last Saturday
from Republic. Arrangements have
been made with the smelter whereby
300 tons will be treated monthly
from this mine.
The El Caliph mine, Republic,
will ship 3J tons of ore to the Granby smelter this week.
Anthony J. McMillan, managing
director of the Snowshoe Gold &
Copper Mines, Ltd., has completed
arrangements for the installation of
what will be one of the largest hoists
yet erected in the Boundary country. It is of 150 horse power capacity, and will be installed over the
main 300-foot shaft recently sunk
on thc Snowshoe, which will be the
main working shaft of the mine.
The hoist will be operated by electric power, which will be furnished
by the Cascade Water, Power &
Light company.
A shoot of ore with an iron gangue
has been encountered in the Mother
Lode, in one of the upper quarries,
known locally as thc sulphur ore
quarry, from the ore having sufficient sulphur in association with iron
and silietf to facilitate the extraction
of its copper values. As an insufficiency of iron in the gangue of the
ore is one the chief drawbacks thc
local smelters have to contend
against, the news of the discovery
was received at the B. C. company's
smelter with much satisfaction,
especially as the shoot of "irony"
ore was stated to be from four to five
feet in thickness.
By the first of December the second half of the 60-drill compressor
being installed by the Granby company at Phoenix will be shipped by
the makers from Sherbrooke, Quebec.
