Grand Forks and Columbia, B. C.   Tuesday, September 16, 1902.
No. 191(
A
Lequime Sawmill and About
150,000 Feet«£Lum-
ber Destroyed,
About 12:80 Sunday afternoon a
costly and destructive fire broke out
at Lequime & Go's sawmill, two miles
north of Columbia, and in an amazingly short time the mill was reduced to an ash pile.
The origin of the fire is still a
mystery. One of the laborers, who
spent part of the forenoon in the
mill, asserts that when he left for
dinner everything about the building was in 'ship-shape. He had not
gone more than half an hour, however, when he looked out and saw
that the mill enveloped in flames.
The Grand Forks fire department
responded promptly to a telephone
call asking for assistance. Mayor
Holland, Aid. Sheads, Bob Petrie
and Geo. O'Keefe, with the fire engine and a thousand feet of hose,
were soon on their way to the scene
of'the fire, and lost no time in
reaching it. They soon had a stream
of water playing on the flames with
telling effect, and it is doubtless
owing to their energetic work that
one-half of lumber was saved. A
bucket brigade did noble work before the arrival of the department,
accomplishing much in the way of
keeping the flames from spreading.
''Thenight watchman was asfeep
in the mill at the time the fire
caught, and he was awakened just in
time to save his life. He lost all
his clothing and other effects, as did
several other workmen.
It is difficult at present to give a
dose estimate of the loss sustained,
as Mr. Lequime is out of town, having started for Kelowna last week.
The most'com potent to judge now
at the mill place it at about $13,000.
About 15,000 feet of lumber and
• '.00,000 lath were burned, and
about 150,000 feet of lumber were
saved. If there was any insurance on the mill and stock, none
of the men connected with the firm
now in town know about it. The
general impression appears to prevail that it was uninsured, as the
tank that was being built for fire
protection had not been completed,
and it is thought unlikely that thc
underwriters would care to take any
risks on the property in the unprotected condition it was in.
The mill was built about a year
ago, and the loss, if vuMnsured, is a
severe   one   to   Mr. iipcquinie,   as
scarcely any revenue has thus far
been derived from its operation,
nearly all the lumber manufactured
being kept in stock.
A C. P. R. car, loaded with lumber, which stood on a sidetrack, was
also destroyed.
The Grand Forks fire department
did effective and efficient work after
reaching the scene, and is entitled
to a great amount of praise. Mayor
Holland acted as chief and "Al"
Manly as engineer. The burning
lumber piles made an exceedingly
hot fire, but none of the boys shirked
any work.
A messenger carrying the news of
the catastrophe has been despatched
to overtake Mr. Lequime, who is
now on his way to Kelowna, and
it expected that he will do so at
Camp McKinney.
. HOT AIR TEAM WINS
The Hot Air outfit, having recently turned its attention from railroading to baseball as a pastime,
succeeded in adding another victory
to its record on Saturday, when it
defeated a team from the Granby
smelter by 12" to 2 in seven innings.
Each side was aided by several
outsiders, and the game, while not
as one-sided as the score would indicate, was not nearly so interesting
as some which had preceded it.
Most of the winners' runs were secured through errors on the part of
the smelter catcher, who had as
many passed balls as he had catches,
treating impartially each of the
three pitchers who occupied the box.
The smelter team contains some
good players, who need only a little
practice to put them- in shape to
make a first-class showing. The
abilities of the players on the winning side are too well known to require any extended mention.
Not the least pleasing feature of
the game was the umpiring of Aid.
Sheads, who gave his humorous decisions in a manner which satisfied
not only the gainer, but amused the
aggrieved parte as well, with the result that the game was a very jolly
one.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER Hi, 1902
A PUBLIC TRUST BETRA YEO.
"I am credibly informed that it
is being alleged by my opponents
that I am fighting against the V., V.
& E. R. R. corning into (Irand
Forks. I wish to inform the electors that I am most emphatically in
favor of the proposed V., V. & E.
Coast-Kootenay railway and all
other railroads which it is possible
to center in Grand Forks that will
tend towards the advancement of
the city, including a railroad up the
North fork of the Kettle river from
(irand Forks as far as Franklin
camp, and to the newly discovered
coal fields in that vicinity. I wish
to say that it is my intention to force
the building of this road the coming
summer, if at all possible, and already steps have been taken by the
Kettle River Valley Railway company in this direction."—From
Mayor Holland's "Platform."
Today Mayor Holland leaves for
Ottawa with the avowed intention of
lobbying against setting aside the
"Hot Air" injunctions—all that at
present prevents the entrance into
thc city of the Victoria, Vancouver
& Eastern railway.
It is a sad spectacle, indeed, and
a sad state of affairs, when a mayor
—who has taken an oath to work
for the best interests of the city
which has reposed such confidence
in him—uses every power within
his means to paralyze its prosperity
and to retard its growth. Doubtless
to General-Manager Holland this
little toy railway is of considerable
importance; but Mayor Holland,
with the great responsibility he so
unfairly took upon himself, should
look at matters in a more public-
spirited nnd unselfish maimer, and
should exert his utmost efforts to
give us real railway facilities—place
us so that we may enjoy direct connection with the whole world over
competitive  transcontinental   lines.
Had the V., V. & E. been permitted to enter the city lust spring
tin1 present •stagnation in trade would
not prevail. Instead, there would
now be thousands of men employed
on construction work on the smelter
and Phoenix branches, and hundreds
of thousands of dollars would have
been put in circulation in this city
and vicinity.
If Mayor Holland's private interests will not permit him to work
for the general good of the people
he has sworn to serve to the best of
his ability, he should long since
have been asked to resign, and in
. tog, which couldjiot be mis-
Itill desires
to hold this public position as a
powerful aid to his private betterment, he should immediately be
ousted from office—a fitting penalty
for a betrayer of a public trust.    .
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
PROMINENT VISITORS
T. Ahern, president of the Ottawa, Can., Street Railway Co., the
Ottawa Electric Light Co. and the
Ottawa Car Works, arrived in the
city last Saturday, aecoigpanied by
James I). Fraser, secretary of the
above companies,       •
Mr. Ahern is a brother of Mrs.
Leamy of this city, who has been
visiting in Ottawa for some time.
She is in delicate health, and it was
for the purpose of escorting her
home that these gentlemen made the
trip to this city, and while here they
were the guests of Judge Leamy.
On Sunday morning they visited
the Granby sine Iter, and were shown
through the great reduction works
by Secretary W'ooster. On the
afternoon of the same day they made
a trip to Covert's fruit ranch, and
after a thorough inspection of that
property, were greatly surprised
with the possibilities of this section
as a fruit growing center.
Taken all in all, they were greatly
pleased with the prospects of the
Boundary country, and spoke in
glowing terms of the attractions of
the city and its surroundings. Mr.
Ahern has worked his way up from
a telegraph operator to his present
high position. Mr. Fraser is a
cousin oi W. A. Harkin of this city.'
PRIZE WINNERS
The fishing tournament carried
on during the season by Itter &
Askew, for which they offered some
excellent prizes, has been brought
to a successful close, the winner

fisherman, "Candy Jack," with a

demonstrated that there are some
"whoppers" to be caught in the
neighboring waters—providing you
know where to go for them. Last

as to the genuineness of the catch
that carried off the first prize, but
"Candy Jack" has four witnesses
that the fish was actually caught
within a short (0Am>I' 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 xhe 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 qf 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, Healthful
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 Forks of the Kettle river with the maiu Kettle
river, and is distant about 800 miles east of Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. Theelectrlo light system will Include street arc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
ou a sufficiently large Bcale to meet all present and future
needs, and insuriug 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 waler,
fringed with forest trees aud surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of plcturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia 4 Western railway, whioh was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway oompany, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the oenter of Columbia, and
the Taneouver, Tiotora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along th. east line
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paolfle railway company has large Interests In the city, having selected the site on acoount of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre.
The climate, taken all the 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 ef
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries aud all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material Is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, aud brick lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the first importance to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered thronghout 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
aud perfect plant of the kind In America—employing hundreds of men, Is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine climate, the eentral situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
oentre, a oity of homes, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; aud whon finally allied and wedded to her sister eity,
will be tha best and largest eity In (the interior. 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 us $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 (irand

MINES AND MINING'
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 4993 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 801 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 2976 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 260 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 40 tons; total
for past week, 9079 tons; total for
1902, 315,550.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 4872 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 205,061 tons.
A great deal of attention is again
being directed to Smith's camp,
which for a year or more has been
very much neglected, by the recent
discovery of a promising shoot of
ore on the Golden Fleece claim. The
owners, Witte and Jensen, have
been doing some prospecting work
on the claim, with thc result that
after sinking through a quartz capping they have come upon quartz
freely mineralized with copper and
also carrying values in gold and silver.
Some 100 men are employed at
the Mother Lode mine and 270 at
the Granby mines. About 60 men
are at work at the B. C. mine.
Over 500,000 tons of ore have been
treated at the Granby smelter since
it started operations a litrle over two
years ago.
The Snowshoe mine shipped nine
cars of ore one day last week to the I
Greenwood smelter.
The Sunset smelter, at Boundary
Falls, will probably resume operations this week.
Work is being pushed on the Gold
Finch by Sutherland and McDonald,
who are getting out quartz with gold
as the principal value in it.
By the first of January, 1903, the
Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls
will be treating 800 tons of ore per
day. Albert I. Goodell, who has
recently returned from Montreal and
New York, states that during his
visit cast the Montreal & Boston
Copper company, owning the smelter and the Sunset mine, decided to
immediately begin the installation
of a second furnace. Plans and
specifications are being prepared and
the order will be placed in a few
days. This will include a new
blower, engine, boiler, etc. Before
blowing in the present furnace, Mr.
Goodell is steel-jaeketting throughout, thus replacing the iron jacket.
He is trying to arrange a freight
tariff from the various mining camps
to the smelter, and as soon as this
is satisfactorily arranged with the
C. P. R. the smelter will be blown
in, Capt. Harry Johns is spending
a few weeks in California, but is
shortly expected home to resumet he
active management of thc Sunset
mine. With a second furnace the
Sunset smelter will be in a position
to handle a large quantity of Republic ore.—Greenwood Times.
The cost of smelting at the Le Roi
smelter, Northport, has been reduced to $3.90 per ton
Estimated prn^l Bthc Le Roi
for August are $7.
