MEN OF MILLIONS
A number of American capitalists
and mine owners arrived in the city
Sunday morning over the V., V. &
E. from Republic, where they had
been inspecting the mines of that
camp. The party included' Chas.
Sweenv, the millionaire mine own-
er of Spokane; Mrs. Chas. Sweeny
and daughter; Sir. Allen, a present-
ative of tne Guigenheimcr smelters
(American Smelter trust, capitalized
at $90,000,000 and owning smelters
at Denver, Salt I^ake City and other
points,) and Mayor Hinchcliffc, of
Paterson, N. J., the gentleman who
recently iook such a bold stand
against the anarchiststhat infested
his city.
The party traveled in a special
car, whicn was sidetracked at the Y
while the visitors took a carriage
drive through the city and U> the
Granby smelter.' They were shown
through the immense reduction
works by Secretary Wooster. Like
all former visiters they expressed
astonishment at the completeness of
the plant, and were much interested
in the various labor-saving devices,
to be found in no other smelter in
the Dominion.
The Knights of Pythias dance last
Friday evening was very largely attended, and proved a very .successful social affairs An appetizing supper was served at the Hotel Winnipeg-

ANOTHER MODERN FABLE
with apologies to no one.
Once Upon Another Time there
was a Progressive and Persuasive
Person commonly called a Promoter, Who induced a brace of Money
Merchants to come in with him in
a Combine to control anything that
promised a Dividend. The Promoter supplied the Experience, and was
therefore given the Say as to What
was What. While a Jim Dandy in
some respects, he was not the only
one of the Family, which included
a Prodigy in the Shape of a Younger
Brother. The Combine spread itself, and having invested a few
Plunks in Grand Forks Sure-Things,
the Prodigy was sent into the new
field to Boost the Concern. He was
a peculiar and self-satisfied Juvenile, who right at the start adopted
as his Policy: "Get everything you
can, and when you can't get that,
Get Even." He became an overbearing Title-Hunter, and the number of Prefixes, honorary and otherwise, that he annexed were so heavy
that they weighed him down. The
habit grew, and the Local Field
becoming too limited for his Great
Exertions, he hied himself io Washington, and with a Burst of Eloquence, Charmed Congress. It was
up to them to help "Float" a railroad
scheme which would do much to
upbuild Ihe Great Republic. Having secured these Concessions, a
large Office Staff," a Seeond-Hand
Outfit, and a careless Section Gang!
Who. threw up a few shovelfuls of
Dirt /and; cut a Trail through the
woods, strung along a few rails, and
soon had this novel Tramway in the
desired shape. It was passable on
the level ground, but most of it was
built on a Bluff, so it was not very,
surprising that occasionally whole
sections of the road would Slip
Loose irom its fastenings and fall
Kerflop into tiie River; and its
couple of EnginU, not being exactly
Stationary ones, usually followed
the track. Two of the Bridges were
extensive ones, and ran all the way
from Curlew to Cascade—that is,
they Floated that far down the River
until they fetched up with a Jolt
against a booni—otherwise they
might have gone on tothePacfic
ocean. The road was used principally te carry Picnic Parties and Injunctions. Having started his road
wrong end foremost, of course the
farther it went the worse it got, and
it was no time before the Scheme
was so Mixed up that the (Podigy
Hollered for help. His Guardians
called him back, and he gave them
an Insight into his Foresight. He
Explained things generally, and
stated that he was Resigned to the
Job of pushing things to an end.
The Money Merchants didn't seem
to Savvy his Scheme, so he was Resigned from his Job, and the Railway ran itself off the Earth. —
Moral—The glutton who bites off
more than he can chow sometimes,
of necessity, gets.

SUNSET SIGNALS
One of the Hot Air railways locomotives—the low-set, rakish craft,
with the extended umbrella stack—
was hauled out of the junk pile and
sent out over the C. P. R. one day
last week. It is presumed it is destined to Ottawa, where the machinery will be properly oiled and an
effort made to haul that injunction
matter through the railway committee, which meets in that city today.
When the Hot Air railway bonus
was granted by the people of Grand
Forks eight months ago, it was
stated that the local station, roundhouse, etc., would be a well laid out
system. And goodness knows,
judging from the time the railway
has been dead, it is not surprising
that it is well "laid out." All that
is required now is that the road be
given a largely attended funeral.
For even the smallest of blessings,
O Lord, make us truly trankful.
Our public spirited mayor, it is announced, is to return to Grand Forks
and his neglected duties.
Appropriately enough, the Hot
Air railway outfit finds itself well
equipped these cold days for its
continued baseball games. Presumably it finds running bases a far less
expensive amusement than running
railways.
As   occasionally   happens at the
Granbv smelter, the rails which
i
carry the charge car into the furnaces spread slightly one night
recently, as a result of the extreme
heat, and the car ran off the track a
couple of successive times. Whereupon one of the employes disgustedly got rid of the local as well as
literal truth. ' 'this is a regular hot
air railway, all right."
GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
Last night's meeting of the Grand
Forks city council was rather short,
and no business of any great importance was transacted.
Those present were: Acting Mayor
Sheads, Aid./Donaldson, Matheson,
Hammar an^ Gaw.
A communication was received
from Colin Campbell, in which he
offered his services as auditor of the
oity books, and to start the books of
the amalgamated city, at $10 per day.
The matter was briefly discussed,
thc aldermen being of thc opinion
that the books of both Grand Forks
and Columbia should be audited by
the same person. Some doubts were
also expressed as to the reliability
of Mr. Campbell. In former years
that gentleman had neglected his
work on account of his fondness for
liquor. For that reason was deferred;
for one week, the city clerk being
instructed to be on the lookout in
the meantime for another competent
auditor.
A small number of bills were then
O. K.'d and ordered paid.
Frank Sears then addressed the
council. He expressed the belief
that as all city by-taws had to be
tested at one time or another, it
would be nothing more than an act
of justice if the city would reimburse
him for the expense of testing bylaw 79, which had been declared defective in the county court last
week. Mr. Sears was also of the
opinion that he had been bunkoed
into fighting the case against Gooey.
On motion of Aid. Donaldson, seconded by Aid. Gaw, a resolution
was passed that the city pay
the costs, $40, for prosecuting the
case agiii nst Gooey. A proviso was
attached to this resolution to the
effect that in future any citizen who
took the responsibility of testing a
city by-law would have to stand the
cost.
On motion of Aid. Hainmar, seconded by Aid." Gaw, tne matter re
the city debentures was laid on the
table.
Acting Mayor Sheads called the
attention of the council to the bad
condition of the First street bridge.
He thought that witii a few hundred dollars it could be repaired so
that it would last a good many
years. The subject was discussed
at length, and various ways of repairing and protecting it against
high water and driftwood».were considered, but as no funds are available for that purpose, no action was
taken. Aid. Gaw thought that some
thing ought to be done, as the false
work of the Hot Air bridges would
be sure to come down with the first
high water! On the suggested of
Aid. Donaldson, Saturday was set as
the day on which the council will
inspect the bridge in a body.
On motion of Aid. Hammar, seconded by Aid. Matheson, the city
clerk was ihstructed to have a sign
placed at either end of the First St.
bridge, warning the public that no
loads heavier than two tons could
ross it in safety.
WWVl
Three Furnaces Are Now in
Operation-Fourth Will Be
Blown In Soon.
In Phoenix, tomorrow evening, a
complimentary smoking concert will
be tendered J. F. Hemenway, who
has been in charge of the Granby
mines office in that camp during the
past five years. Mr. Hemenway
will leave a few days later, on account of his wife's health, to take
up his resilience in Prescott, Ariz.
Aid. J. J. Mcintosh made a business trip to Phoenix last Saturday.
"Billy" Shaw, who has been chef
at the Pacific hotel during the past
summer, left last Saturday for
Eholt, where he secured a position.
F. H. Mackenzie left for Greenwood yesterday", returning to the
city today.
No. 2 furnace was blown in at the
Granby smelter yesterday morning,
and three furnaces are now in full
working order. The remaining furnace will be blown in as soon as
sufficient power is available, which
will be as soon as the Cascade power
line is completed or the water in the
flume is at high mark.
Both ore crushers, matte sampler
and briquette are also working, and
the two converters are being rushed
to the limit treating the custom
matte, as well as the large reserve
supply which had accumulated, and
between 40 and 50 tons of 99 per
cent blister copper and gold and
Silver values are being shipped daily
to New York refineries.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
That Grand Forks has an ideal
climate was evidenced when the
writer picked a cluster of wild strawberry blossoms on Sunday.
Fred Grant says that if the expected haopens, and Grand Forks
has a skating rink   this winter, the
Granby smelter will have a bunch
of puck-chasers which will keep the
town team busy every minute to
beat them out in the proposed practice games during the season.
D. J. Darraugh, of Phoenix, of
the provincial police force, was registered at the Winnipeg last night.
Mr. Darraugh came down to attend
the hearing of the Manly trial.
P. C. McArthur, of Phoenix, one of
the orignal owners of the Columbia
townsite, arrived in the city last
night to attend the Manly trial. Mr.
McArthur was financially interested
in the Columbia hotel, which was
destroyed by fire about three years
ago.
Alex Taylor, district 0 P. R.
land agent, with headquarters at
Nelson, B. C., arrived in the city
Saturday, returning home yesterday.
The Grand Forks beef trust is not
satisfied with the monopoly it enjoys. It is stretching out its anus
to conquer other fields. The latest
move is an endeavor to draw trade
away from all people who get their
meat supply from other sources.
This game was worked at the K. of
P. dance last Friday night.
Mrs. W. J. Morrison, who has
been visiting in Denver, Col., since
June last, returned yesterday to her
home in Grand Forks.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
li just as well fake a delightful, cool
I • 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 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 care,
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.

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 main Kettle
river, and is distant about 300 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and w 11 be
completed in September. The electric light syst m will Include street arc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all present and future
needs, aud insuring ample protection from the ravages of
lire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
The natural situation of the city for beauty Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure-clad and flower-bespangled rolling
pratoie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling wator.
fringed with forest trees aud surrounded by mountains, form-
ing a charming combination of' pioturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which wa. constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columb.a, and
th. Vancouver, Vlotora A Eastern Railway company, has
located Its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the oity connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paciite railway oompany has large inter-
estsiuthe city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre,
s
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best In I nn-
ada-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 «f
fertile agricultural land, purt of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, oherrles and all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small frnit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful iu the district. Lumber can
he procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of gooil
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 throughout 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
and perfect plant of the kind lu America-employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
heaiitible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the best  and largest city in [the Interior.

IMPERIAL LIFE.
In reviewing the list of prominent

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

MINES AND MINING
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 4560 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 900 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 4928 tons; Sunset, Deadwood, 630 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 710 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 630 tons; total
for past week, 12,358 tons; total for

Two carloads of machinery from
Sherbrooke, Que., arrived last week
for thc Granby mines at Phoenix,
being the parts of the new ore
crusher that have been on the way
so long. The crusher is now being
set up in the building erected especially for its use near the Knob Hill
ore bunkers. It will be ready for
use by the time the 100-horse poAver
electric motor, by which it will be
driven, arrives. With jaws that can
take in a cubic yard of ore, and a
capacity of 3600 tons each 24 hours,
the crusher, when working, will^be
one ofthe sights of the Boundary.
It will be the largest machine of its
kind in the Dominion of Canada.
One of the carloads weighed nearly
i00,0007on Which the freight bill
was over $2000. The other was not
quite so heavy.
Work on the big building for the
200-ton cyanide plant at the New
Fairview Corporation, Ltd., is progressing favorably.
Mr. S. H. C. Miner, presinent of
the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power Co., Ltd., in an
address to the shareholders at the
annual meeting of the company,
held in Montreal on the 7th inst.,
said that the company had had considerable to contend with during the
year. The price of copper has been
exceedingly low, going down to 11£
from 17 cents. He further explained
that owing to the scarcity of coke, it
was found impossible to operate
over two out of the four furnaces on
the property. In'fact, it was only
during the month of April that the
four furnaces were in operation. A
year ago he had stated that he had
hoped at this annual meeting to announce a dividend to the shareholders, but unforeseen events, already mentioned, had made this
impossible. The annual report,
which was read and adopted, was
considered to be very satisfactory.
The properties are all in fine condition. The old board of directors
was re-elected.
Work has been started on the
Hume to convey water to furnish the power for running the
stamp mill at the Nickel Plate mine,
in Camp Hedley. In addition to
this, a tramway is to be built from
the mill site to the mine, five miles
away and some 5000 feet higher.
Twenty-five men were hired in the
Boundary last week to work on these
improvements.
Orders were sent to the Granby
mines, at Phoenix, last week, to begin shipping 1000 tons of ore or
more daily. This order went into
effect yesterday.
Cut to Pieces
BUT STILL LIVING
We may be slow in Columbia, but we get there
all the same; and whilst we do not sell for cash
ONLY, we are SHARP enough to CUT prices for
SPOT CASH just as low as they do in Grand
Forks. We will go one better, and still continue
the custom of credit to those who deserve it.
