LABOR DAY AT PHOENIX
Next Monday, Sept. 1st, Phoenix
will hold a Labor Day celebration,
but it will be.in a different manner
from that which was held last year.
It will lake the form of an immense
picnic, to be held at the New York
townsite park, just outside Ihe city
limits, in which all the labor organizations will take part. . Invitations
have boon sent to labor representatives in Greenwood, (Irand Forks
and other Boundary towns to join
with Phoenix in enjoying (his holiday, and it is expected that a large
number will be glad to avail themselves of the opportunity of leaving
the hot valleys and enjoy the mountain breezes of Phoenix and its suburbs. The picnic will be in the
nature of a benefit for Henry Syr-
sted, who lost his sight in an explosion in the Snowshoe mine some
months since.
PRELIMINARY SURVEY
Kootenay route lying between Vancouver via. the proposed New Westminster bridge and the Hope mountain district, as a preliminary to
undertaking the location survey.
The recent speech delivered here by
President Hill would appear to possess even more significance than was
ascribed to his utterances at the
time, when he declared that the surveys would that the surveys would
soon be accomplished and that,
bonus or no bonus, he was prepared
to build the coast and the interior
simultaneously.
The preliminary survey from the
coast terminus, will be started within a short time. The work will be
under the direction of James H.
Kennedy, chief engineer of the V.,
V. & E." ',
That portion of the proposed line
from Midway west 100 miles to the
Similkameen river was surveyed last
year by Mr. Kennedy engineers. It
is not definitely known whether construction work will be resumed at
this end just now, although there
seems to be a probability that a considerable portion of the line up the
Fraser river valley will'be built before the end of this year. The road
will open up a region abounding in
coal, mineral and agricultural resources, especially in the Similkameen district. %

THE EVENING SUN.
The Evening 8un today appears
in a new "dress'' of type, and in a
slightly enlarged form. The columns
have been made wider and longer,
and additional pages will be added
as soon as the patronage of the pa per
justifies an increase in size. From
the the first issue the paper has
made steady progress, in spite of the
antagonistic attitude assumed . by a
small clique of business men and a
ft w would-be statesmen and picayune
politicians. The Sun may yet get an
opportunity to dance at the funeral of
some of its enemies.
The future policy of the paper will
be the same as it has been in thej
past. It will be scrupulously clean
free from the gossip of the scandal
monger and his twin brother, the
man who scrapes the filth from the
gutters' and labels it news. But we
intend to print all the news that is
jrinted. While we shall
jave occasion to speak
plainly of men and
man's name will be
ntil there is positive proof
that he is either dishonest or dishonorable. From" this platform
there will be no deviation.

Cumings had an interview with
President J. J. Hill, who expressed
himself as well pleased with his recent visit to Grand Forks, and predicted a great future for the eity.
Mr. Hill also expressed the opinion
that the railway troubles would be
settled within the next two months,
and .that construction work on the
spur to the smelter would be coirf-
menced.
Mr. Cuniings says that another
smelter for this city, of even greater
capacity than the Granby, is being
promoted, and the work of building
it will probably be Commenced
within six months.
The Great Northern, says Mr.
Cuming, has issued an attractive
booklet, setting forth the pictur-
esquesness and bountiful resources
of this section. The booklet is being freely distributed in the East,
and he predicts a great influx of settlers to the Boundary country th's
fall.
The Baltimore American, commenting on the fact that over two
million dollars' worth of copper
matte was exported from the Boundary to the United States during the
last fiscal year, says that a country
which can accomplished such a task
must have something back of it.

GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
At the council meeting last night
Aid. Harvey presided, in the absence of Mayor Holland. All the
aldermen were present except Aid.
Donaldson, who is absent on  leave.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read and passed,
and a few bills ordered paid, a discussion took place on the question of
sidewalks and their cost.
Aid. Sheads then drew attention
to the fact that some time ago he
had asked that a map of the city
water works be made, as is done in
every well regulated city, As the.
matter now stood', all the data regarding this was in a notebook of
Mr. Reid's, and should this gentleman leave, or the book be lost, the
city would be without much valuable information. It was necessary
to know were the city mains, cocks,
etc., were located. He then made
a motion, seconded by Aid. Matheson, that the assistant city. clerk,
who, he stated, was an expert
draughtsman, should be instructed
to get out a map of the city water
works in book form.    Carried.
Aid. Hammar asked how long it
would be before tne ninety days'
notice to the women down the row
expired. He was informed that the
notice was given on June 16th.
Aid. Harvey asked: "Suppose that
those that are there now leave, and
others rent the houses, but don't sell
liquors, can we drive them out?"
Aid. Hammar: "Yes." Aid. Harvey: "Well, you'll have a hard
job." The city solicitor stated in
answer to a question, that  the  of
fence is not that they live down
there, but that they conduct bawdy
houses, in which case the city could
make it very uncomfortable for
them. Aid. Harvey: "I tell you,
gentlemen, it is a hard matter."'
Aid. Sheads referred back to the
water works system, and asked what
rate the R. & G. F. Ry. should be
charged for water at their roundhouse. He called attention to the
fact that in the event their wishing
to fill, say a couple of engines and
tanks after pumping had ceased for
the day, the tank would be left in
very bad shape to deal with a fire
should one occur, and suggested that
to remedy this the company should
be requested to put up a tank for their
own use (dose to the roundhouse,
within sight of the pumping station,
from which they could draw water.
as required without reducing the
city's supply. After some discussion, it was decided to charge a rate
of $40 per month (being the rate
originally talked of), the company
to erect first a tank of suitable dimensions at the point indicated as
above. The city clerk stated, in
answer to a question, that the company still owe the city the full
amount of over $800 for the pipe.

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, A,re Well
Advanced.
Tbe City of Columbia is situated near the junction of
the North' Forks of tbe Kettle river with tbe main Kettle
river,  and is distant about 31)11 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date und modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed iu September. The electric light syst m will include street arc lamps. Tbe waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently lurge scale to meet all present and future
needs, and Insuring ample protection from the ravages'of
fire. At present water is supplied ihe eity by pumping from
a beautiful sprint; of  exceptional purity. .
The natural situation of the city for beauty Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad aud flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, travorsed by a river of bright, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountuius, forming a charming-combination of pictiiresuuesness and grandeur. .
The Columbia & Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Coliimbiu, and
the Vancouver,'vietora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along tbe east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifie 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 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 au extent of
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries aud all the small
fruits grow abundantly. Tbe valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Iluilding material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime ami stone of good
Uiiality can always be obtained when required.
Tiie mining interests areof tbe first importance to this
country, aud willdo much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the muilutailis
adjacent to tbe oity, 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 tbe kind in America-employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to tbe city.
Owing to tbe fine climate,   the   central    situation,   tin
heautible    environments,   tbe   bright   prospects   for futllri
growth and   prospcrit

trWts, 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

MINES AND MINING
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 660 tons; Emma,
Summit camp, 80 tons. Total, 740
tons.
It is expected that the Mother
Lode smelter will be blown in tomorrow with one furnace, the other
to be started a few days later. Since
the smelter was blown out, some
weeks ago, a small force has been
busy at the Mother Lode mine, the
minimum being lo men. Last
week the number was increased to
about 50, and yesterday the first
shipment of ore for nearly two
months was made to the company's
smelter. The force of men will be
gradually increased till the old number are on the payrolls.
Porter Bros., the contractors, are
evidently making a success of the
contract which they recently undertook for the Granby company, for
stripping of the surface of part of
the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill
claims, says the Phoennix Pioneer.
One good-sized section has been
completed, about two hundred feet
wide, and the main or upper tower
has been dismantled, and another
and higher tower erected a little
farther up the hill, the terminal
tower still being in use. In addition to this another set of these huge
tripods has been built still farther
up the hill, to strip a piece M ground
adjoining the main glory hole, which
Superintendent Williams desires to
get in condition for stoping before
the bad weather sets in. The heavy
cable for this second tramway runs
directly acVoss the glory hole, the
waste being dumped off to one side
of the ore body. Once again the
great practicability of the system of
stripping is illustrated, as it would
be exceedingly expensive to do this
stripping in any other manner and
deposit the waste where it will be
out of the way. Porter Bros, now
have 35 or 40 men at work on the
stripping contracts, which are being
successfully carried out. The scales
carrying the debris go down the
trams by gravity and dumped, and
are brought back by power from an
Upright steam engine, located at the
rear of the main tower.
After a cessation of about ten days
the Granby mines have resumed
shipments of ore to the company's
smelter in this eity. The first shipment amounted to 28 cars or nearly
700 tons, which is about the daily
capacity uf two furnaces at the smelter, As coke supplies have been
steadily accumulating while the reduction works were cold for the past
ten days, a sufficient amount has
been received, to keep the smelter
