I'oronto, which put up tbe money lor

THE PEOPLE'S FORUM
To the Editor of the Evening Sun.
Will anyone Inform the readers of The
Sun the reason why the V., V. A E. Is prevented building its road into Grand Forks
and Columbia? Who is preventing the
road from coming in? Who is carrying on
this hold-up? Why Is it allowed in this
between Northport and Nelson, B. C,: land of equal rights to all and partiality
fo connect with   the Marcui-Rossland : tonone'
■ j    It seems strange that nearly everyone
wishes this road completed, and yet some
Supt. F. S.  Forest   is    now   having I 0„rlous undercurrent and crooked work
tbe new train schedule "strung" at hie \ holds it back.   I have not spoken  to any-
otliee preparatory to get ing out   tbe   ol,e- '»°rhave  I heard of anyone except

pised lor the   operation   of   the   uew   are opposed to Mr. Hill and his road.
Iraio service is about as follows:    'J'be j    Now, will they give us the reason, why

TUESDAY, AUGUST 12, 1902
If the minister of mines assimilates
all the facts presented to bim while on
his official tour, the obnoxious 2 per
cent mineral tax ought to be doomed.
Mr. Hill's visit to the coast cities of
British Columbia .has ereateil a sensation in railway circles of that Nsec-
ti m. One or two more visits of
Mr Hill to these towns might havethe
effect of convincing the people that he
ism earnest when he says be intends
to build the V., V. & E. through to
the coast.
"Our aldermen are big men in their
own bailiwick, but tbey don't seem to
'draw much water' in tbe opinion ol
those in authority at Ottawa," remarks the Grand Forks Hollander,
referring to the lack of respect which
Hon. Mr. Blair, minister of railways,
showed for the council." ol Grand
Forks and Columbia in ignoring tbe
petitions passed by them re tbe Hot
Air injunction case. By tbe choice
and classic phrase, "don't seem to
draw much water," we presume our
local contemporary means that < ur
aldermen are ot little importance outside their own city, a supposition in
which we are unwilling to concur.
Tbe aldermen did tbeir duty to their
constituents, aud if the petitions failed
.in their desired effect, the minister
of railways alone is to blame. Had
Mr. Holland signed the petition
passed by the Grand Forks council, it
might have "drawn as much water"
ae his famous submarine engine.
Is Today Being Made Acquainted With Our
Needs.
Hon. E. G. Friur, minister of mines,
arrived in Graud Forks yesterday
afternoon at about 4:30 Irom Cascade
by private conveyance, Mesars. Geo.
A. Fraser and E. Miller acting as
escorts from ih'at cily.
The programme lor the day, as arranged Ibis morning, included a
meeting between Col. Prior and the
school trustees, at 2 o'clock, at which
ii was intended to havethe schoolchil-
! dieu gothruiuh certain exercises. At
3:00 o'clock he was to meet the various
committees of citizens Irom tbe board
of trade at the Yale hotel.
i At ,8:00 o'clock tonight a meeting
will be held in tbe board of trade
rooms at which the minister will be
presented, by the board ol trade, with
au address setting forth the needs ol
the Bouuday, to which he is expected
to reply. After this meeting a
luncheon will beserved at the Yale.
Col. Prior will leave tomorrow
morning by private conveyance for
Greenwood by way of Phoenix.
George McHugo, William   Dalglish
and Paul Bertois, soldiers of tbe Can-
, adian contingent to South Africa from
I Cascade,   are   daily   expected  home
I from the war.   Dalglish and  Bertois
went  out  with  the last contingent,
McHugo going out with the  one   be-
j lore, having previously served a   year
j with the Strathcona  Horse.   During
j the last enlistment McHugo was se-
| verely   wounded,   having   been shot
i through the lung and  left upon   the
battlefield   for  dead.    He recovered,
however,   aud   is   110 v said   to be in
good   health.      A   heartv     welco tie
awaits the boys on their arrival.

then being turned in, expanded the

is anticipated in starting the works,

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources—Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
. and Waterworks  Systems, Are Well
Advanced.
The f'lty of Columbia is situated near the junction of
the North Forks of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river,  and Is distant about SiOO miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date und modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light syst m will include street are lumps. 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 city 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 fofest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pictiiresqueaness and grandeur.
J*
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse .and yards iu the center of Columbia, and,
the Vancouver, Yictora A Eastern Railway company, has'
located its depot, freight sheds und yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacific railway company has largo interests in the city, having selected the site on uccount of the superior natural advantages as a railway centre.
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best lu 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 -f
fertile agricultural land, part of whioh is now being cultivated.
J*
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.
J*
lluildiiig material is plentiful in the district. Lumber enn
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
.The milling interests ureof tbe 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 n short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter -the moBt modern
aud perfect plant of the kind iu America-employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
heautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, asfwell us a wholesale distributing
point; and when filially allied and wedded to her sister city,
will b* 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 gentlemen of large experience in the insurance business. This
company has nothing but up-to-date
liberal policies to Fell, and the fact
tbat many large policies have been
issued by the Imperial, running as
high as $200,000 on one single life,

lo arrive shortly thereafter. The gentlemen will probably remain in the
Boundary a couple of weekn.
Yesterday was payday at the Granby mines, the amount distributed being somewhat less than last month,

the Snowshoe.
