Local Events of General Interest to the Citizens of
the Combined Cities
The past week has seen several
social events, all much enjoyed by
young and old. On Thursday evening a party was held at Mrs. T.
Smith's, where a most enjoyable
time was spent by all present.
On Friday evening there was the
Spence-Macdonald concert. We
. were glad to see a larger attendance
this time than on the/occasion of the
the last visit of these Scotch . entertainers. That it was much enjoyed
was quite evident. Flora MacDon-
ald looks as charming as ever; her
voice was in good condition, and
her rendition of old favorites much
enjoyed. Gavin Spence told many
good stories in a manner that
"brought down the house," and his
songs were given with a freedom
from affectation and stage effect that
made one feel the sentiment of the
song.
The first ice carnival, held at the
rink last'night, was a success—unqualified. There- were so many in
costume that it would be impossi-
I bletogo into details, b.uti certainly
the west end of the town can be
proud of its representation. Miss
Peters looked regal with her crescent
and star; Miss Hay very charming
in her costume, and the blending of
beautiful colors in Miss Donnan's
dress was very effective. Many
i others were there, among them Miss
E. Donnan, the Misses Miller, and,
barring the baby, we think the whole
of the Peters family. The ladies
were not the whole show, however.
The. boys were there, too, and
strictly in it.
After the carnival came the dance
given by the new Citizen's Supply
company. If their business is as
successful as their social function,
then we doff our hat to the new concern. There was a large attendance;
the music was good, and many of
the dances above the average. A
first-class supper was served at the
Granby hotel about midnight, and
dancing continued until nearly 2
a. m.,
So much for the past. Coming
events cast theirshadow before them.
The 27th is going to be a big night.
If  you don't know why, find out.
Under the attractive forces of a full
moon, jingling bells and good company we hear asleighing party is to
go out to Covert's ranch on Wednesday evening next, the 15th inst.,
under the auspices of the
Lanies' Aid of Knox Presbyterian church. The fare—both
passage and provisions—is only four
bits per head. It is requested that
those Columbians wishing to go will
phone Rev. J. R. Robertson, No. A
119, when arrangements will be
made and sleighs will call at J.. H.
Hodson's store, about 7:30.. We
trust all intending to go will please
see to this, so that there may be no
crowding and every one will, have a
good time. Mr. Hodson' has
kindly given the use of his store! as
a waiting room, so that there need
be no waiting in the cold.
The skating rink is being well
patronized this season, and there
should be no trouble in financing a
good covered rink for next winter.
The people from this end of the
burg are doing their share. Overx
thirty residents south of the C.P.R,
track being counted on the ice last
week.

At the meeting 6f the Grand Forks
city council last ' night very little
business was transacted, with the
exception of ordering a few bills
paid. The petition of the liquor
dealers, asking th'at they be granted
a licence for the next term of six
months on payment of $100 and
a note for $150, payable subject to
the decision of the new council, was
referred back to the committee that
presented it, with a recommendation
that it be laid before the licence
commissioners.

TUESDAY, JANUARY 13, 1903
In another column will be seen a
notice requesting that all claims
against the City of Columbia be presented for payment at once. This,
on the eve of retiring from office, has
the ring of legitimate business. The
amalgamation agreement provides
for the running expenses and the ex-
»i, pei.diture of certain money for both
ci. es until they become united, and
implies t nit there be no other expenditure and accordingly no othei
debt (except the debenture indebted i ess) in either city at the end oi
the year. Any debt t;> the contrary
—any obligation left over by Columbia for the new city to shoulder—
would not only be a breaeh of faith
with Grand Forks and a violation of
trust on the part of Columbia, but
also shoulder the new city with a
dishonest burden which would tend
to hamper its progress. It is to be
hoped that the closing of the books
in Grand Forks will reflect as much
credit and business ability on the
Grand Forks council as is due to the
Columbia council for their past career and closing accounts, and that
the Grand Forks council will likewise keep their pledges with Columbia, by paying all their debts and
balance their books so as to give the
new city a fair start and not try to
hamper its prospects by burdening it
with dishonest debts, and let no
member of the council so far forget
his duty and his honor as to say,
"Let this or that bill stand over for
the new council to pay."
The aldermanic ticket is rapidly
filling up, aud within a day or two
the list will be complete. In the
Center ward there are three candidates in the field, the two most favorably spoken of, and who will undoubtedly be elected, are Charles
Cusson and N. McLellan. Mr. Cusson is a successful hotel man, and
during the past year has made an
enviable record in the Columbia
city council by always championing
the side that stood for progress in
civic improvements. His election
to the legislative -chamber of the
amalgamated cities is almost certain,
and the ratepayers will'make no
mistake by giving him their support. Mr. McLellan is one of the
most—if not the most—successful
and enterprising business in the city.
During the past three years he has
been engaged in the wholesale and
retail feed and commission business,
and under his wise and energetic
management his private affairs have
prospered, until today he easily
leads all competitors in his line in
the Boundary district. He owns
property in all three wards, therefore all parts of the city can
depend upon receiving justice at his
hands in thc council. Mr. McLellan should be given a handsome
majority, because every vote cast for
him will mean that the citizens favor
the employment of business methods
in the transaction of the city's affairs.
Bv glancing oyer the editorial
columns of the last issue of our local
contemporary, The Sun has arrived
at the conclusion that the News-
Gazette is searching for a scientific man to enter as a candidate in the mayoralty contest. But
the paper neglects to state in what
branch of science it prefers our next
mayor should be versed. If scientific railroading is its hobby, the
paper will undoubtedly swing around
and support the present occupant of
the mayor's chair before the campaign is over. And to strengthen
this opinion, we cite the fact that
the News-Gazette makes special reference to the science of wireless
telegraphy. This, judging the future bjp the past, would suit the
present mayor to a dot, because the
perfection of the system would enable him to transact Grand Forks
ciivc affairs jrom Toronto. Is the
News-Gazette acting in good faith in
supporting a scientific horticul-
turalist for mayor?
The Sun has received the following communication from Mr. W. A.
Stratton, manager of the Kettle
Valley Lines, which we publish in a
fair-minded spirit: "Referring to
your editorial in the paper stating
that there is a doubt whether we are
not opposing the V., V. &E.'sen-
trance to the Granby smelter, I beg
'O inform you that we are not opposing them in any way; but, on the
contrary, we would be better pleased
if we could assist them. We are interested in all kinds of business
which will build up the town."
The elector who intends to vote
for Mr. Burrell, should insist on
reasonable assurances that that gentleman will not be ruled by the
present mayor.
An anxious public is wondering if
Ihe News-Gazette has decided yet
which candidate it will lend its powerful ediiorial support to in the approaching mayoralty contest, or will
it repeat its policy last year of holding back until a couple of days before election, by which time it may
be able to once more locate the gentleman with the long green.
There were a great many mas-
queraders at the carnival last night;
but not all of them. A few of them
are running for office at the forthcoming mnnicipal election—for in
stance, some of the aldermanic candidates in the East ward.
P. T. McCallum, the poputar candidate foil mayor, is gaining every
day. in 'his campaign. Mr. McCallum is a pioneer of Grand Forks,
having come to this valley from Ontario ten years ago, after spending a
short time in Vernon. In the early
days he used to record the mineral
claims throj^hout the district for
tiu; prospect^, as there was no mining recordernearer than Midway at
that time. It is this fact that accounts for his good standing among
the old-timers. About seven ^years
ago he was appointed a justioe of
the peace, and three years later was
made a notary public. Since that
time he received his appointment as
deputy sheriff. At present he
conducts the most prosperous insurance agency in the city, and is well
liked by all class-es of eitizms. He
owns property in every ward in the
city, and it elected he will liu.or for
the best interests of all sections of
the town.
IMPERIAL LIFE.
Some of the the candidates should
make a note of it. There are no First,
Second and Third wards in this city.
East, Center and West will do for
thc present.
The; aldermanic race in the East,
ward is yet in a chaotic state. We
won't be able to tell who's who until
our next issue makes its appearance.

• To say that this splondid work of
science and art is finer and better
than ever, is stating it mildly. The
demand for it is far beyond all previous years. To say that such results, reaching through thirty
^ears, are not based upon sound
sense and usefulness, is an insult to
the intelligence of the millions.
Prof. Hicks, through his great Almanac, and his famous family and
scientific journal, JForiJ an'l Works,
is doing a work for the whole people
not approached by any other man
or publication. A fair test will prove
this to any reasonable person. Added
to the most luminous course in
astronomy for 1903, forecasts of
storms and .weather are given as
never before, for every day in the
year, all charmingly illustrated with,
nearly two hundred engravings.
The price of single Almanac, including postage and mailing, is thirty
cents. Word and Works with the
Almanac is $1.00 a year. Write to
Word and Works Publishing Co.,
2201 Locust Street, St. Louis, Mo.,
and prove to yourself their great
value.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well bike 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 ofthe World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Lcadville, 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 live
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair ears,
standard and tourist sleepers, a pev-
lcct 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.

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,-

is agent at Qolumbia and Grand
Forks.
Last Monday the Granby mines at
Phoenix sent outj 73 cars of ore, or
about 2200 tons. As far as known
this is the largest tonnage ever sent
out from, one Jgroupofiinines from
any camp in (he province in a single
day. ,.j::.
The main tunnel on the Lucile
Dreyfus mine, at Danville, is , in
about 300 feet, and from the intersection of the vein follows the hanging wall. The winze is down 75
feet on the hanging wall and follows
fine looking pay ore. If the Lucile
Dreyfus; the Mineral Hill and neighboring mines continue the production of base ores as they are now doing they will soon bring that district
into prominence. ,■.-,
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoeiiix, 8338 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 390 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 3208 tons; ,Sunr
set, Deadwood, 325 .tons; B.; C.
mine,. Summit camp, 900 tons;, Emma, Summit camp, 930 tons; total
for past week, 14,091 tons; total for
1902, 14,091, tons.
The ore shipments from Republic
to the . Granby smelter tast, week
were: Lone Pine-Surprise, 112,.tpns;
Quilp, 268 tons; total, 380 ton^
The Florenee group, on the North
Fork o Kettle river, in which Qtta-i
wa parties recently acquired an,, interest from the owner, M. R. Feeney,
of this city, is looking well. Surface
work has resulted in the exposure of
a well defined lead of pay ore two
and one-half feet wide underneath
' 'wash.'' One of the walls has.been
struck. A drift from the bottom of
a twenty-foot shaft is to be started
at once with he object of catching
the lead. An assay of ore fron* the
surface showing, uncovered recently,
gave returns of $68 in gold, silver
and copper in the order named, the
principal value being in gold. The
group iss ituated in {Brown's camp,
eleven miles from this city. Four
men are at present employed on development work.
W. F. Newton has eleven men
working on two shifts on a group of
24 claims on the east side of the
Kettle river, about a mile south of
Danville. He is operating in two
different places for the development
of the Copper Bullion, which gives
evidences of becoming a mine. The
principal work done on it is a shaft
108 feet deep, from the bottom of
which a drift has been driven on the
vein 300 feet. A crosscut from the
bottom of the shaft has intersected
the yein, where it is six feet wide.
In the drift the vein varies from
three to six feet in width, and the
ore along the entire 300 linear feet
is said to average $18.25 in value.
Several analyses of the ore show
from 40 to 60 per cent silica and a
half of 1 per cent copper. The commercial values run about $16 in gold
and from two to six ounces silver to
tbe ton.
