And the Grapdy Smelter Will
Be Running Full Blast
Next Monday.
Next Monday the Granby smelter
will commence to operate to its fullest capacity.
C. E. Lane, chief electrician at
the smelter, went to Cascade this afternoon for the purpose of inspecting the plant of the Cascade Water
Power & Light' company. While
there a test run of the machinery
was made, and everything worked
satisfactorily. Half an hour after
the water was turned on 17,000
volts were coming through the transformers at the smelter end of the
power line. As it only requires
20,000 volts to make the system
perfeet, the initial test is regarded as
an excellent showing. The smelter
people are highly pleased over the
test, and have .announced that the
entire plant will be in operation on
or before Monday next.
Mr. H. N. Galer, assistant, manager of the company, left last Tuesday for Fernie, where he will endeavor to obtain a guarantee from
the eoal company of that city in regard to keeping the smelter supplied
with coke. He will return tomor-
ow.

and the title to the entire route soon
be in the possession of the road.
An official of the road last night
volunteered the information that
active construction work would be
commenced as soon as the whole of
the right of way had been secured.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1902
A great deal of sympathy is at
present being peddled out to unde-
servers by the press of the province.
The people are being severely scored
for sending their money to eastern
department stores for goods which
can, and should, be purchased at
home. In doing this, the local
press is, of course, perfectly justified.
Every community needs all the
money its citizens possess for the
development of its own municipality. Ii it is sent east it only en-
liches the merchant princes, without benefitting the town from which
it is sent bne iota. But the country
merchants are a great deal to blame
in this matter. The majority of
tin m do not give their wares sufficient publicity. They shun the
advertising columns of their local
paper: but expect that same paper
to fight their eastern competitors.
If it doesn't, the paper is "no good,"
and must be "crushed." Some of
them, when asked for an advertisement, will answer that they are too
well known to advertise. But being well known personally does not
make the public acquainted with the
goods on the shelves. The big eastern merchants, on the other hand,
make advertising a special study;
use printers' ink liberally, and consequently they prosper.
suspend judgment on the selections
thus far made. Although Col.
Prior is unpalatable to them, they
recognize the fact i that he is surrounding himself with a fair proportion of liberals, and that it will
probably be more satisfactory to let
him endeavor to carry on his policy
than to defeat him and invite a general election.
It is probable that the temperature of the moon's surface at its
midday is 750 degrees Fahrenheit.
The drop at night is probably 1000
degrees, to 250 degrees below. This
would be a splendid place to which
to deport a few Grand Forks people
who are always grumbling about the
weather.
Sentimentalists have it that "Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
That won't help Tracy, however, in
his municipal aspirations, for in
Grand Forks we are a practical
rather than a sentimental set, and
prefer a mayor who stays at home
occasionally.
The Great Northern railway has
5000 miles of track and about 1000
locomotives. The Hot Air railway
has 35 miles of track and one locomotive]} Is it any wonder the latter got butted off the track when it
endeavored to stop the former ?
The Hot Air railway has kicked
because it has to pay the city $40 per
month for water for its one engine.
Hot air comes cheaper, but, unfortunately, it is not so fillin'.
True, Mayor Holland will serve
only one year, but it will take several years for the community to repair the damage he did in that time.
A dispatch from Montreal informs
us that Canada is to have another
transcontinental railway, extending
from ocean to ocean. This announcement was made last Monday. The
Grand Trunk will be behind the
the new road, which will have a
mileage of about 3000 miles, and
the ci n-itruction will involve an expenditure of from $75,000,000 to
»100,000,000. According to the
present arrangement, the new ' system will run through that portion
of northern Ontario known as New
Ontario, starting from North Bay or
(iravenlnii'st, Out., and extending
through Manit ba, the
Territories and British Columbia to
Bute Inlet or Port Simpson, as later
may be determined upon. The
building of this transcontinental
line has been under consideration by
the Grand Trunk directorate for
some time.
If wireless telegraphy were only
in working order now, Grand Forks
might keep in touch with her
mayor.

last Tuesday evening, all the aldermen being present, with Mayor McCallum in the chair.
The following bills were ordered
patd: M. Burrell, $12.50; J. R.
Wright, $1.55.
The mayor was instructed to see
Electrician Lane about inspecting
the electric light system.
1'. D, McDonald was asked to fur-
Ndrthwest"1''*'1 the council with a statement of
the cost of the electric light plant
before   final   payment   should   be

P. D. McDonald was paid  $2500
on account of electric light plant.
JJBcv. R. W. Trotter was engaged
to audit the city books at the end of
the year.
The city clerk was instructed to
have the necessary repairs made in
the waterworks system.
John Manly   left for a business
trip to Spokane today.
The Nelson, B. C, hockey club,
which has won the championship
cup during the past two years, has
lost some of its best players, and is
already trying to induce some of the
Phoenix and Grand Forks players
to help their team retafn the cup.
Phoenix may be so well supplied
wifh players she can lend Nelson a
few; but so far as Grand Forks is
concerned her policy is, ' 'what we
have we will hold," and will herself
make a play for the trophy. The
local team may not be a world-
beater, but :with the experience
gained last winter and with the material aid from the new players in
town, a much stronger team than
last year's will represnt the Gateway City. With Cochrane, Grant,
Jackson, Niles, Ewing, Mitchell, McQueen, Holland and others available, a husky bunch can be placid
upon the ice.
/ P. D. McDonald, the electrician,
says he is not a politician. But he
is doing a great deal of "wire-pulling" these days.
Messrs. Addison it Knap]), who
have the contract for erecting the
V., V. & V. passenger depot in this
eity, are rushing the work on that
building. Good advancement has
been made during the present week,
the framework being already up,
and if nothing unforeseen occurs
the building will be completed by
Christmas.
Mrs. James McNicol returned to

The Republic News announces that

both of Curlew, Wash. Dan's many
Grand Forks friends congratulate
the former proprietor of the Wayside Inn upon his marriage.
Angus McDonald, a carpenter at
the Granby smelter, is limping
around town these days as a result
of running a nail into his foot while
at work.
J. F. Royer, of the Model stables,
has purchased James Anderson's
Black Hawk livery stables, and will
combine the two under one management.
F. L. Underwood, of New York,
vice-president of the B. 0, Mining
& Smelting company, and W. H.
Thomas, consulting engineer of the
same company, were in Grand
Forks last Tuesday. After visiting
the Granby smelter, of which they
spoke very highly, they left for
Greenwood.   "*

REV. IRL R. HICKS' 1903 ALMANAC
To say that this splendid work of
.science and ■art is fineif 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 not based upon sound
sense and usefulness, is an insult to
the intelligence of the millions.
I'rof. 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 1908,' forecasts of
storms and weather are given as
never before, for every day in the
year, all charmingly illustrated with
neariy 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 to
Woro and Works Publishing Co,
2201 Locust Street, St. Louis, Mo
and prove to yourself their great
value.
The Evening Sun job department
is the best equipped in the   Boun
dary for printing neat  pamphlets
and price   lists.    Our material   is

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when i'.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 the
American continent?
This you can do by travelling on
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line ofthe 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.

COLUMBIA
CITY OF BEAUTIFUL ENVIRONMENTS,
HEALTHFUL CLIMATE AND BOUNTIFUL
RESOURCES—SPLENDID ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND WATERWORKS SYSTEMS—THE
RAILWAY CENTRE OF SOUTHEASTERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The Oity 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 aud
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will 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, and insuring 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 eity for beauty Is not excelled
In Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pioturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, whioh was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards In the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway oompany, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Paclfle railway company has large interests in the city, having selected the site ou account of the su«
perior 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 au extent »f
fertile agricultural laud, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and] 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 ut fair prices, and brlok lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests arenf the first importance >> 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.
I>
The Granby smelter aud  converter—the   most   modern
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing  hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospeots for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia Iwill be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as [well as ii 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
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 Jgentlemen 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 8200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who arc patrons of
tins company. Mr. J. A. McCallum

MINES AND MINING
It is stated on reliable authority
that the mine OAvners of Republic
will get a 85 freight and treatment
rate as soon as the V., V. & E. spur
is completed to the Qranby smelter.
About 200 men are now employed
in the mines of the Republic camp.
Of this number, the Quilp has 30,
the Morning Glory 6, the Black
Tail 10, the Lone Pine-Surprise 10,
the Trade Dollar 10, the San Poil 10
and California 30.
Jay P. Graves, general manager
of the Granby company, and H. N.
Galer, of this city, assistant to the
manager, made a trip of inspection
to the company's mines at Phoenix
he latter part of last week.
The first shipment of Republic
ore shipped west of Aoundary
mountain arrived at Greenwood last
Monday. It consisted of three carloads from the Lone Pine-Surprise
mine,'consigned to the Montreal &
Boston Copper company's smelter at
Boundary Falls.
A. I. Goodell, manager of the
Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls,
was in Spokane this week arranging for another furnace for his smelter from a manufacturer of that city.
Another car of machinery, consisting of parts of the new 60-drill
air compressor, arrived in Phoenix
last week, and one-half of the compressor is now on the ground, the
other half to be delived sometime
next month. This makes five cars
of this kind of machinery that have
arrived within the last few weeks
for the Gianby mines, besides the
three cars of parts for the. large ore
crusher that is now complete and
awaiting the electric current from
Cascade.
Seventy men are at present on the
payroll of the Snowshoe mine, a
number being employed on the improvements, bat the force may be
increased when thc shipments are
doubled up, some time in the near
future—when the smelters can handle more ore. So far this year the
mine has shipped about 15,000 tons
of ore, and the output for 1902 will
doubtless be 20,000 tons. Last year
the entire output wa< but 1731
tons, as the mine was only shipping
occasionally. Three shifts of miners
are employed in the work of deepening the main shaft of the mine, a
depth of £85 feet Having .been attained, it being the intention to sink
to the 400-foot level at present. The
surface workings, from where all the
ore is now being shipped to the
smelters, will also be connected with
a pocket adjoining the main shaft
by a drift, and the skips from the
electric hoist will dump the ore from
th(! main shaft workings into this
pocket, from winch it can be
trammed to ore bins with little expense.
Four players from British Columbia will go with thc all-Canadian
Rugby football team, which leaves
next month for a tour through
England, Ireland Scotland.
