SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
Manly's Trial Again Adjourned
—At John A. Manly's trial, which
was held at the office of Hay, McCallum & Wright on Wednesday at
4 o'clock, no evidence was taken,
one hour and a half being wasted
V>ver a legal squabble as to who
should constitute the court. Mr. E.
P. Davis, of "Vancouver, appeared
for the defense, and contended that
the court should consist of Justices
McGregor and Henderson. Justice
McGregor argued that lis he had not
asked Mr. Henderson toj sit, Mr.
Henderson was intiudidg himself
unto the bench, and he therefore
would not sit with him, and preferred to hear the case alone. It was
finally agreed that both justices
should step out and an outside jus-
'tice called in. Owing to the absence of an important witness, the
crown asked for a remand of eight
days, which was granted. Bail was
renewed| with the same bondsmen.
A. M. Whiteside appeared for the
prosecution, and E. P. Davis for the
defense.

sceno of a "serious shooting affray
last Monday morning, when Walter
Willis shot Robert Adams through
the lungs and liver with a 32-caliber
revolver. The men had trouble on
various occasions, and the hard
feeling engendered culminated: that
morning when a dispute arose over
a trifling sum of money. Adams
is in a critical condition, and Willis
is under arrest charged with attempted murder. The prisoner is a
morphine fiend in an advanced
stage of the habit. He is will in

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1902.
Gentlemen who use crab arguments can be heard on the street
corners most any day declaring that
railway competition does the general public no good. But figures are
as stubborn as a mule. Since the
Great Northern commenced to handle Grand Forks traffic the passenger fare to Spokane has been reduced
from $11.75 to $6.75, and to Seattle
from $20.95 to $16.55. Besides, a
material reduction was made in the
freight tariff last week. Yet these
these men continue, to talk back-
v ards. \-

H. C. Killeen, of Victoria, provincial supervisor of roads, trails
and bridges, was billed to give a
short performance in Grand Forks
yesterday, but a diligent search
around the hotels failed to disclose
his whereabout. The government
has been so liberal in its grants for
road improvements in this vicinity,
that the gentleman may possibly
have skipped this town in order to
dodge the ovation that awaited him
here.
Mayor Holland returned from
Toronto last Wedesday. Immediately on his return the report was
circulated that the mayor was to
serve out his year as general manager of the Hot Air fiasco. If this
is true, it means that Mr. Holland
will endeavor to serve the people one
hour out of every twenty-four, while
the other twenty-three he will be
scheming to block the progress of
the community and thwart the will
of the ratepayers.
promoters hope to surpass the effort
made last winter. The meeting
next Tuesday has been called for the
purpose of discussing ways and
means of securing an enclosed rink.
It is also the intention to organize
two clubs, one to represent the city
and the other the Granby smelter.
The prime movers of the city club

Cochrane, and the smelter will be
represented by W. 0. Mitchell and
Fred Grant.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
arid 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 east-
em 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, Healthflil
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 Porks of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river,  aud is distant about 300 miles eust of Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Uthtwri
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, aud w II 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
Are. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
The natural situation of the eity for beauty Is not excelled
In Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
SaW. traversed by a river of bright, sparkling wa er,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, form-
Ing a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia 4 Western railway, whioh was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
th. Vancouver, Vlctora 4 Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
JA j
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 in Con-
adu-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, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding {Columbia,
divided into small fruit und vegetable farms, will sustuin a
large population.
Iluilding material is plentiful In the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick limp nnd stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests nreof tho lirst Importance to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes hnve 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 modern
and perfect plant of the kind iu Ameriea—employing hundreds of men, Is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fin. climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be au 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 th. best and largest city in (the interior.

business. This company nas nothing but up-to-date liberal policies to

policies have been issued by the

At the Oro Denoro mine, iii Summit camp, operations will be resumed shortly. The property is
owned by the King Mining Co. Arrangements have been made with W.
T. Smith, of Greenwood, to undertake the development work. It is
hoped to open up a big glory hole
on the surface. The mine has phenomenally large surface showings.
An experimental shipment was
made to the Trail smelter three years
ago, since which time the property
has been idle.
There are 20 men at work at the
Quilp mine, Republic, at present.
At the annual meeting of the
Quilp Gold Mining company, held
in Spokane last week, the following
board of directors was chosen: E. J.
Roberts, W. J. C. Wakefield, W. G.
C. Lanskail, R. L. Burnett and E.
L. Tate.
"V
Thc staff of the Nickel Plate mine,
near Hedley, is at present devoting
its attention to installing a 40-stamp
mill, a four-mile tramway, and a
power plant—electricity generated
by water power. The company has
applied to purchase 1000 acres of
land, including a small lake above
this land, and will dam it to flood
the land bought, for a water reserve.
Another dam will be constructed at
the flume head, and there will be
about 2$ miles of flume. The company has acquired a mill site from
the Iicdlsy Townsite company on
the southeast corner of the townsite.
Contractors are now cutting ties and
grading on the upper end of the
tramway. The illume and dam
work has been started. The mill
site has been surveyed and the engineer is preparing plans incidental
to the building of a mill. The power
house will be in close proximity to
the mill. A 250-foot fall, with a
good "head" of water, will be obtained. Nearly 8500,000 has been
spent on this mine up to date, and
there are 3000 feet of work to show
for it—nearly all tunnels. The av-
eragc assay is a problem—they have
some, very high-grade ore, with
plenty of visible free gold, assays
which are not rare at $2000. But
what the whole body—which is immense—will average is another
thing. The Nickel Plate is not- by
any means the only prospective mine
in this cam]). The Kingstone, owned
by an eastern syndicate and managed by F M. Wells, has about 100
feel of work done, which shows a
large body of ore (20 to 40 feet)
which averages between $20 and $80
in gold and copper. One might
truly say that the above mentioned
properties are about the only ones
in the camp with any work on them,
yet there are many more with just
