No. 18
Bill ONE CITY §1
Columbia Citizens Are Now
Reside/its of Grand
Forks.
According to an act of the legislature, passed at the last session, the
amalgamation of the cities of Grand'
Forks and Columbia went into force
yesterday. The two councils will
continue to meet separately until
after the forthcoming municipal
election, but the meetings will simply be held for the purpose of transacting routine business, as neither
body has the power to originate any,
new measures.
Yesterday Mayor 'McCallum received the followed telegram from
Attorney General D. M. Eberts:
Victoria, B. C, Dec. 31,1902.
Mayor of Columbia, Columbia, B. C.
The proclamation has been issued
incorporating the amalgamated cities
of Columbia and Grand Forks.
Permit me to tender my congratulations and best wishes for the prosperity of the new city.
D. M. Eberts,
Attorney General.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The hockey match between the
home club and the Phoenix boys, at
the Grand Forks Hockey club's rink
on New Year's dfcy, was a good exhibition of the popular winter sport,
although the local team lost by a
score of 1 to 3. The playing of the
local club plainly showed the lack
practice, but it also demonstrated
that there are a number of first-
class players among its members.
With the proper amount of practice
work, the club should be able to
hold its own against any aggregation to be picked up in this part of
the world.
At the Columbia city council
meeting last Tuesday evening very
little business was transacted. Mayor
McCallum presided and all the
aldermen were present. The following bills were ordered paid: H. L.
Newett, 82.50; A. McDonald, $8,25;
(G, C. McGregor, $1.50; J. A. McCallum, $3. The' clerk was instructed to collect $1.06 rental from
the V. & N. Telephone company
for the privilege of having its poles
erected on the streets.
The New Year's reception given
by the Ladies' Aid in the Methodist
church was very largely attended,
and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Games of amusement and refreshments were indulged in, and the
day was very pleasantly spent. The
company broke up about 10:30 p.m.
George Fraser has moved his drug
store from Bridge street to more
commodious quarters in the Chappie block on First street, opposite
the post office.
Capt. Disbrowe feels jubilant.
He says his persistence in advocating the improvement of the North
Fork road is about to ripen into a
victory.     *"
It.is stated on reliable authority
that a letter has been received by a
gentleman in this city from Hon.
W. C. Wells, commissioners of lands
and woits, in which he states' that
it was the intention of the government to extend the Franklin camp
road. For some reason, however,
it seems to have been necessary to
expend the otherwise throughout the
district. The commissioner says
he has discussed the matter with
Mr. Killeen, inspector of roads and
bridges, who says the work can still
be done to good advantage next
March, or early in April. In any
event, it is the intention of the goy-
ernment to make provision for the
completion of this road. Mr.
Wells says he can appreciate the
feeling of the people that exists from
the fact that the money intended to
be expended had to be appropriated
for other work. He thinks the injustice done the people can still be
remedied. In regard to the question of clearing the river, he promises to look iuto the matter.
In the Methodist church next
Sunday morning Rev. J. F. Betts
\Vill preach on the theme, "Up and
Doing." In the evening a special
song service will be held. A choiee
program has been prepared, and all
are cordially invited to attend.
Services will be held in Knox
Presbyterian church next Sunday as
usual. In the morning Rev. J. R,
Robertson, B. A., will take*for his
subject, "New Year Methods";
evening, "The Graves of 1902."
Very interesting services, led by
Mr. C. M. Turner, were held in
Knox Presbyterian church New
Year's Eve. All the members took
part and helped to contribute to the
success of the meeting.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 2, 1903
A man cannot serve two masters.
Ald. Hammar's opinion of the
hotel and saloon men of Grand
Forks is as strong as it is sweeping.
What will these people do to Hammar on election day?

Mr. P. T. McCallum today definitely announced himself as a mayoralty candidate. During the past few.
weeks he has been urged to enter
the contest by numerous delegations
or representative citizens, and he has
finally consented to make the run,
which shouldj end in a splendid victory.
The six years of Liberal rule at
Ottawa have resulted in a net surplus of $27,000,000, while the previous six years show in contrast a
net deficit of $2,000,000. The trade
of the Dominion has increased $180, -
000,000 during the six years of
Liberal rule. The phenomenal rate
of this developments shown by the
record of the previous eighteen
years, t|je growth for that period
being only $65,000,000^ or $3,6(36,-
000 per year. This is a striking
contrast to $60,000,000 per year
increase under Liberal rule.
Chicago papers are printing a
story of the discharge of Walter J,
Hill, son or President James J.
Hill, from the office of the auditor
of disbursements of the Great Northern in St. Paul. While President
Hill was away tbe young man, the
story goes, yielded to the temptations of the holidays and was a little careless about reporting at the
office when the other elerks did.
The head of the office, having instructions from the president of the
road that any of his sons who were
put into that office were put there
to work and to learn the business,
and not just for fun, did wha', young
Hill evidently did not think he
dared do—told the young' man he
need not come back unless he could
appear for work during |he regular
office hours. • President Hill is
quoted as saying:    "My boys have
worked hard. They started at the
first rung of the ladder and have
been pulling themselves up step by
step. Of course I gave them a start,
put them at work at the lowest
salary and most humble job I could
find. . I gave them a warming up.
I told them they would get fired
just as quickly as any other fellow."
The story teaches a moral. The successful business of today must detach himself from all sentimental
feelings.     	
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The complimentary dance given
by Mr. and Mrs. Murray, of the
Hotel Winnipeg, in the Biden opera
house Wednesday evening, was
without doubt the social event of
the season. The hall had been
tastily and beautifully decorated,
and Mrs. Galliher's orchestra, of
Spokane, furnished excellent music.
About 100 couples were present,
mostly from the city, though the
near-by towns were also well represented. Many beautiful gowns were
worn by the ladies. The affair was
well managed, the different committees doing their work in a quiet and
gentlemanly manner. A delicious
supper was served from 12 until the
guests departed for their homes.
At the close a vote of thanks was
tendered Mr. and Mrs. Murray for
the evening's entertainment.
A meeting of the licenced victuallers was held this afternoon to
discuss questions of moment to their
calling. It was reported a day or
two ago that a movement on was foot
among the hotel and restaurant proprietors to establish a co-operative
meat market, and it is understood
that it was for the purpose of discussing this matter that the meeting
was called. Another meeting will
be held early next week, when some
decisive steps will probably be
taken.
The municipal campaign is warming up, and in a few days more it
will be in full swing. For mayor
three names are mentioned—P. T.
McCallum, Martin Burrell and W.
H. Creitz, though only the first-
named has thus far openly avowed
his intention of entering the race.
The aldermanic candidates reported
to be in the field in the East ward
are Gaw, Sheads, Hammar, Folsom
and Temple. In the Centre ward
Cusson, McLellan and A. Fraser are
talked of. In the East ward there
no candidates in the field so far,
Mrs. John A. Manly's benefit
concert in behalf of Mrs. Robinson,
a destitute woman, who is paralyzed
and unable to work, in the Biden
opera house Tuesday evening, was
very largely attended, and from an
artistic viewpoint was one of the
best entertainments ever given by
local talent in the city. The choice
literary and musical program was
exceptionally well rendered. Among
those who took part were Mrs. John
A. Manly, Josephine Ainsley, Mrs.
Miller, little Daisy Hodges. Prof.
Richards, little Mamie Fraser, Mr.
Harris, Miss Manly and Miss Ayre.
If the Ore Stands the Test a
Railway Will be Built to
the Property.
Fuller details respecting the Seattle .mine deal, regarding which a
brief account was published in last
Tuesday's issue of The Sun, are
of a most encouraging character.
The mine has been bonded by the
Trail smelter, and the exact amount
is $98,000, to be paid in yearly installments, final payment to be made
thsee years from date. A few carloads
of ore shipped at an early for the purpose of testing it, and if the test
proves satisfactory a railway will be
constructed to the property.
The deal is generally regarded as
of great importance to this city,
the opinion prevailing that it is the
opening wedge in the opening up of
the North Fork country, enquiries
are already being made by the
smelter people for properties adjoining *he Seattle.
If the railway is built to the mine,
it will probably be extended as far
as the North Fork coal fields before
snow flies next fall.
Keep your eye on the North Fork
country.
It was reported late this evening
that E. Miller had been appointed
returning officer.
, The old favorites, Gavin Spence
and Flora MacDonald, the Scotch
entertainers, will soon spend a
nicht wi' their friends in Grand
Forks.
Another consignment of colored

To saf that this splendid 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

the intelligence of the millions.

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
is agent at Columbia and Grand

' WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of ihe 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 eastern 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.

BOUNDARY MINES AND SWEATERS
R. P. Williams, agent at Greenwood for the Canadian Rand Drill
Co., has received an order from the
Granby Mining & Smelting company for two 8x14 locomotives for a
36-inch track, these being intended
for hauling slag from the furnaces to
the dump at the company's smelter
in this city. Last week Mr. Williams obtained an order from the
Montreal & Boston Copper company
for 7x12 locomotives for a 40-inch
gauge track, also for slag hauling
purposes. The contract in each
case calls for delivery within ninety
days. The British Columbia Copf
per company is putting in a slag
elevator at the Greenwood smelter,
preferring that means of overcoming
the impending difficulty of the. disposal of slag.
The latest report from the Providence mine, near Greenwood, is that
the vein has widened out to about
18 inches in the bottom'of the shaft.
The ore has the appearance of carrying high values, and some of it will
be shipped this week. The vein
faulted early in the montb and, although its direction was plainly indicated, the break necessitated some
30 feet of dead work being done on
the incline to get into it again, its
dip being too flat for the shaft to follow it.     . . I
The Waterloo, Camp McKinney,
now has its new hoist installed and
the , work of sinking the shaft another 100 feet is being pushed on
with. Reports regarding the width
pf the vein in the drift at the 160-
foot level and the character of the
ore being met with continue favorable.
Information from Fairview states
that a shaft is to be sunk 300 feet on
the Morning Star—not 100 feet, as
reported last week. The Morning
Star group is reported to be under
bond to a New York syndicate,
among the members of which are
Messrs. E. L. Simpson, Jefferson
Hogan and T. A. Be\\,, The bond
is reported to call for ah early commencement of development operations, and payment for the property
is to be made in installments payable at different periods during the
twelve months from date, the total
cash consideration being 825,000.
A beginning has been made to
deepen tha main shaft at the New
Fairview Corporations Stemwipder
mine, on the 300-foot level of which
drifting and stoping were carried on
for some time until the recent temporary shut-down. Meanwhile the
completion of the cyanide plant is
proceeding. With both the Stem-
winder and Morning Star at work,
the outlook for Fairview camp will
be regarded as more encouraging
than for some time past.
Chas. P. Robbins, president ,and
manager of the Lone Pine-Surprise
Mining Co., Republic, says the outlook for that property was never
brighter than at the present time.
