Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, February 3, 1903
No. 27
The Mayor Reported That
Gambling Had Been Suppressed in the City.
The meeting of the city councfl
last night was a rather long session,
and a number of important questions were discussed at length,
though definite action was taken in
but few instances.   ,
Mayor Burrell occupied the chair,
and the following aldermen were
present: Cusson, Gaw, Manly, McCallum, McLellan and Trotter.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting had been read andl approved, the auditor's balance sheet
of the Grand Forks city finances for
the year 1902 was read, and on motion of Aid. McLellan, seconded by
Aid. Manly, the report was accepted
and ordered published.
A communication was from J. B.
Henderson was read. It urged the
mayor to call a public mass meeting
in the interest of the formation of a
miners' association. Mayer Burrell
stated-that he had written F. Wi
Hodson, asking him to deliver a
lecture on the subject in the city.
As soon as he heard from him a date
for the meeting would be fixed.
The following bills were ordered
paid:

Aid. Gaw reported that he had received a letter from the boiler inspector at Nelson, stating that the
necessary repairs on the boiler at the
city light plant would amount to
about 8100. As the boiler is absolutely useless in its present condition, and as it might be needed in
the event of an accident to the Cascade power, tbe water and light
committee was, on motion of Aid.
Trotter, seconded by Aid. Manly,
instructed to see that the needed repairs were made.
Aid. Trotter, chairman of the
health and relief committee, reported that he bad investigated the
McCutclieon relief case.   The case,
he said, did not properly belong to
thje city, as Mr, McCutcheon bad
been injured at the head of Christina lake, and he should therefore
be looked after by thc provincial
authorities. He suggested that the
unfortunate man be removed to Miss
Rhodes' hospital, as that institution
was receiving a small provincial
subsidy. Miss Rhodes, he said, had
intimated her willingness to take
the case in charge. ' On motion of
Aid. Trotter, seconded by Aid. Gaw,
the city physician was instructed to
take the case in hand, and to report
to the committee at the next meeting of the council.
The case of Mr. Strutters, who
had a leg broken in the Owl saloon
last December while under tbe influence of liquor, was discussed at
length. It was shown that the man
had been knocked down in a scuffle,
and in the fall he had had his leg
broken ; the injured limb had been
bandaged and braced 'with a couple
of sticks of eordwood, and in that
condition he had been hauled to the
Grand Forks hotel and placed there
as a city patient. The mayor thought
the Owl saloon should be made to
foot the bilL Aid. Manly thought
the police had not used sufficient
vigilance in investigating the case,
although the fact was brought out
that the chief had reported the matter to Mayor Holland and Aid.
Sheads. Aid.- McCallum expressed
the opinion that the bst way out of
the dilemma would be to allow the
Grand Forks hotel bill for $31 and
then refer tne matter to the licence
commissioners, and on motion of
Aid. Trotter, seconded by Aid. Gaw,
this Course was pursued.
The question of allowing a rebate
on liquor licences for the present
term of six months was then taken
up. Aid. Manly said the council
could do nothing but collect the full
amount of $250, and this appeared
to be the unanimous opinion of all
the aldermen. It was generally
understood, however, tbat when the
new by-law is framed all hotels able
to qualify as such would be allowed
a rebate, so as to make thc amount
the same as is now paid by the Columbia hotelkccpers.
On motion of Aid. Manly, seconded by Aid. Gaw, Dr. Kingston
was re-appointed city physician at
the old salary—$35 per month.
Aid. Manly expressed the opinion that the city team was too much
of a luxury. He didn't think it was
earning its wages, and thought the
work it was xloing could be done
cheaper by contract.
Aid. McLellan took tbe opposite
_A! ±2 __
V.,V. &E. Has Now Uninterrupted Strip to Smelter
and to  Phoenix.
The difficulty over securing the
right of way over the Clement property for the Granby smelter spur, as
well as for the line to Phoenix, which
thc V., V. <fc E. railway has been
trying to overcome for the past few
months has ju6t been satisfactorily
settled. The owners of the property
on the smelter right of way declined
to part with, that land unless the
Phoenix rignt of way matter was
also disposed of at the satnae time.
This the company agreed w, and the
diderences of opinion of both parties
were overcome,*and the agreement
reached that is satisfactory to both
principals.
Nothing now stands in the way of
actual construclion of these two important branches, arid it is' confidently expected that as soon as
weather conditions will permit, the
work of laying the rails will be vigorously proceeded with.

HOTELS VS. GROCERIES.
To the Editor of The Sun :
Km,—Let me suggest, through
your paper, to my fellow-citizens of
Grand Forks a few facts and propositions :
1. The twenty-two licenced hotels
of Grand Forks are a direct cause of
much misery and crime.
2. The great majority of these so-
called hotels are mere groggerius,
and do no good whatever as a set-off
to the fearful evil.
• ,'i. The respectable citizens of
(irand Forks would rejoice in their
suppression.'1
4. No racial, religious, moral or
political theory is involved in thc
matter.
5. Hotels are necessary; 'grog'
gories have no excuse to live, If
hotels may have some evils connected with their bars, those evils
are as nothing compared to the evils
of groggerics. Hotels have a reputation to protect. Groggerics have
have no reputation to loseA
6. The demand of the licence law
in the province of British Columbia
in regard to bed and board for the
(raveling public is not an extravagant onv. Do a bunk in a back
room and two or three jim-cracks
in ai) Unfurnished garet transform a
groggcry into an hotel?   In a word,
are thc requirements of the law complied with?
7. The moral effect of tolerating
groggeries as if they were well
equipped hotels is bad in every way.
It encourages recklessness, leads to
the formation of ruinous habits, and
destroys that respect for law which
ought to prevail in every well-
ordered community. The man who
substitutes a groggcry for an hotel
is as much.out of place in modern
society as holy water would be in an
Orange lodge.
8. I believe! after some observation, that Grand Forks has as high
a moral tone, and is as well governed as any city in the province;.
The officials in every department
are uniformly ready to expedite all
movements for the city's good. Let
us not malign our city by echoing
the cry that it is a Sodom, but
unitedly contribute to the futhcr-
ing of its prosperity by standing by
our city council and by helping our
magistrates in cleansing if, from its
moral stains.

TUESDAY. FEBRUARY 3, 1903
Goon evening.     Have you be«n
bovcotted vet?
The gambling element in Grand
Forks is dying hard, even if it isn't
putting up a "game" fight.
That must be a mighty powerful
brand of "nerve" food the "wide-
open" gentry are using these days.
The first act of the side-splitting
comedy, "Th? Gamblers' Revenge ;
or, How the Boy-cot and the Tiger,"
is now -on the boards in Grand
Forks.
The gamblers don't think they are
getting a fair deal in this closing-up
process. Just as if anyone ever expected a "fair deal" where the card
manipulators of Grand Forks are
concerned.    Why, the idea 1
The discussion over the gambling
situation in Grand Forks had reached such a warm state that the man
who makes the weather found it
nesessary to turn loose some 16 degree below zero ozone yesterday,
and is keeping it up at that pressure,
the idea being, it is presumed, to
keep local matters at an average
temperature.
It is understood tbat if Col. Prior
is unseated he will dissolve the legislature at once and appeal to the
country. Everything points to an
early election in any event.
The Canadian Pacific has just received an offer from a colonization
syndicate of $42,000,00 for 14,000,-
000 acres of the railway's land.

Local merchants report yesterday's
business as the best for some time
past.
Efforts arc being made to have
thc Rossland Hockey team play a
game here Saturday night.
Jim Hutton has been laid up for
thc past few days with a severe cold.
Jay P. Graves, of Spowanei vice-
president and general manager of
the Granby smelter, made one of his
periodical inspection trips to thc big
reduction works yesterday.
Thc Grand Forks Hockey team
went over to Rossland  Saturday.
Their train became snowbound, and
they had to tramp two miles into
town, after which the Rossland puck
chasers walloped them 6-1. Outside
of these minor drawbacks the trip
was a successful one.
Hugh Crosbie is out again after
being under the weather for tho past
few days.
There will lie a hockey game soon
between two local teams known as
the Heavweights and Lightweights,
composed of well-known business
and professional men.
The smelter management is gradually overcoming the difficulty of
securing sufficient coke, ore and
matte supplies to keep the big works
running to their full capacity, which
shortage was caused by the recent
heavy snowfall and consequent
drift's. The fourth furnace will be
started up tomorrow morning, and
these, with the five care of delayed
custom matte which arrived yesterday, will keep the converter running
night and day for some time to come.
S. F. Griswold and family have
removed from Rossland to Grand
Forks, where they will reside in
future.     $?|
Tenders for the sapply of timbers
required for the improvements to
the bridge across the North Fork
near Eagle city have been called for.
Lequime & Co.'s sawmill at Smelter lake will dispatch shipments of

the best assets tbe city possessed.
Aid. McCallum—There appears
to be a difference of opinion between
thc horsemen and fecdmen.
Aid. Gaw called attention to
tho fact that all thc fire hydrants
were covered with snow. He said
this should be cleared away, as in
case of a fire it might cause delay.
On motion of Aid. McCallum,
seconded by Aid. Gaw, the service^
of H. C. Kerman were retained- until the end of the month. At that
time, however, his resignation would
be accepted, as the low state of the
city finances would not permit of
his longer retention on the city payroll. Mr. McCallum paid a fine
tribute to the sterling qualities of
Mr. Kerman, and expressed the hope
that the volume of the corporation's
business would soon increase sufficiently to warrant his re-engagement.
Mayor Burrell reported that the
resolution passed at the last meeting regarding the suppression of
open gambling had been successfully enforced. Everything was
running smoothly, he said, and no
friction was anticipated. He had
informed the gamblers that if they
could find no other place to house
their paraphernalia they would be
stored in the oity hall.

REV. IRL R. HICKS'1903 ALMANAC
To say 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
years, are hot 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, Word and 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 j 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 take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on thc
American continent?
This you can do by travelling on
the Rip Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line ofthe World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadvillc, 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,
whoso business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing thc continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

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
Forks.
BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
The Faithful-Surprise Mining Co.
has been organized at Danville-
under the laws of the State of Washington, with a capitalization of $1,-
000,000 non-assessable, non-forfeit-
able shares, at a par value of$1.00
each. The object of the company is
to mine the ores and develop the
group of seven claims formerly
known as the Surprise and Faithful
groups, situated one mile from the
town of Danville, on the North
Half of the Colville reservation,
State of Washington.
The ore is of a good grade and
character, as is shown by the following assays and analyses given by
the GranbySmelter of Grand Forks:
Gold. Silver. Copper. Iron. Sul. Silloa.  Lime.
$17.60 $1.(10    0.85 p.o. S.5 po 1 po 89.5 p.e. l.S p.o.
ii7.s0fl.tf	
$16.00	
The ore in this property can be
sorted to almost any grade, as the
iron carries nearly all of the values.
The Surprise lead is a true fissure
vein, with an average width of 7
feet, running about 2 degrees east of
north, and dipping at an angle of
about 40 degrees east. The ledge
is well defined, and has been traced
for a distance of 6,000 feet.
About 300 feet up the hill from the
Surprise lead is what is known as
the "Lena ledge," (arrying about 8,
per cent copper and $3 to $5 in gold.
The ledge is well defined, and has
been traced a distance of 2,500. feet.
Nearly all of the development work
has been carried on on the lower, or
Surprise, lead. First by sinking an
incline shaft 5x7 feet, all in ore, to a
depth of 115 feet. At this depth a
large body of water was encountered,
which made sinking to a greater
depth impracticable with the means
available at that time. At the 50
foot level in this shaft a drift was
run 60 feet to the, north, showing
9 feet of ore, which gave an average
f $18 per ton. For the purpose of
draining the shaft a cross-cut tunnel
was run a distance of 525 feet. Then
a drift on the ledge 60 feet to the
south, showing 2£ feet of ore, which
gives an average of 828.00 per ton.
Running north from the shaft there
is a 12 Lot ledge, averaging $4.00.
Along the hanging wall there is a
I ay chute of 3 f ;et, which gives an
average ofx$28.(0.
There were 15 tons of ore shipped
from the shaft to the Standard Pyri-
tic Smelter at Boundary Falls, B.
C, which gave returns of $17.38
per ton.
On the Faithful, which bounds
the Surprise on the north, there has
been a drift of 375 feet run along the
ledge, which shows an average width
of over 3 feet, and carries va'ues
from 88.00 to $166.00. Besides this
work numerous open cuts have been

The object of thc company is <o
drift on the ledge, starting at a point
85 feet above Lone Ranch Creek,
and 900 feet norjh of thc Surprise
shaft. This will give a depth of 300
feet of stoping ground at a cost of
$4.50 per foot of drift. This drift

grade to the Great Northern railroad, 2,000 feet away.
The seven claims are covered with
excellent   timber  for mining and
building purposes, and are crossed
by two streams of water, affording
a good supply of water the year
around for camp and mining rieeds.
