Grand Forks and Columbia, B. C.   Tuesday, September 30, 1902.
No.**S    /
Mr.  Stratton  Listens to a
Citizen's Opinion of the
Hot Air Road.
A comedy, consisting of one short
act, was played, la«t Thusday afternoon, in the 'bus that daily transfers
passengers to and from the V., V.
& E. track. The principal actors
were a (Irand Forks business man
and a Hot Air official, who, by the
way, were stangers to each others;
and the episodethat took place at
their first meeting is not calculated
result in a life-long friendship.
The vehicle jogged on slowly. The
three or four occupants maintained
an .attitude of strict neutrality respecting contemporaneous affairs,
It was not until the Hot Air siding
had been reached that any of the
men could muster up sufficient
courage to express a positive opin
ion. Then the man .of busines gave
vent to his feelings.
'There," he said, nudging the
stranger next to him in the side, as
he pointed to Mayor Holland's
private car, which was standing on
a sidetrack—"there is tangible evidence as to the manner in which
millions have been squandered on a
little toboggan-slide, jerk-water
railroad."
The stranger addressed made no
reply, so the man continued:
"What earthly use can the officials of a toy road have for a special
car, anyway? Walking is too good
for them. And the road isn't fit to
walk over. Just think of a road like
that keeping a transcontinental line
out of the city for six months! Its
scandalous! It's the cause of all
our woes. We would have been a
thousand times better off if the
measly little road had never been
thought of. The whole gang of the
job-lot promoters are only grafters."
The stranger was still uncommunicative.    The speaker continued:
"They say Mayor-General Manager Holland has gone east to stay.
I hope he does stay. That's where
he belongs. They ought to send
Stratton and the four miles of Hot
Air road in Canada east, too. Then
the citizens should get out an injunction restraining them from returning."
The bus had reached the train.
The stranger alighted from the vehicle and boarded the train.
It was not until the 'bus was returning to town that the business
man, who had simply made the trip
to the train in order to look aftor
some freight, learned of the true role
he had played a few minutes before.
"Who was that taciturn man I
spoke to on our outward trip?" he
asked yhe driver, as the horses went
along at a 2:20 gait toward the city.
"W. A. Stratton, one of the head
men of the Hot Air road," was
the reply.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
A baseball game between the Hot
Air employes and a picked nine,
at the athletic park Saturday afternoon, resnlted in a score of 5 to 2 in
favor of the former dub. The game
was a pitchers' battle. The audience was father small, yet the fine
work of the men in the box was not
wholly unappreciated. A drove of
horses feeding near the grounds
would occasionally stick their heads
over the fence and smile at the successful manner in which the wielders
of the willow knocked holes in the
air.
The executive of the Grand Forks
Dranch of the Lord's Day Alliance
will meet in the Methodist church
on Thursday evening, October 2, at
8 o'clock.
A caravan consisting of eight
teams from Great Falls, Mont.,
passed through the city last Sunday,
bound for the Okanagan country.
Last Sunday was an ideal day.
In fact, it is when such perfect climatic conditions prevail that people
have a desire to live forever.
A regular monthly meeitng of the
Greenwood Liberal association was
held last Wednesday evening. President J. R. Brown presided and there
was a good attendance present.
After the routine business, resolutions were passed urging the railway
committee of the privy council to
grant the V., V. & E. the necessary
permission to cross the C. P. R.
tracks, and also urging the postmaster general to arrange for a better mail service between Greenwood
and the Similkameen country.
Henry Ellis has returned from a
prospecting trip to the headwaters
of the main and west fork of thc
Kettle river. He rejMirts having
found the dwellings of placer miners that must have been abandoned
thirty or forty years ago. The cabins
had sunk nearly out of sight and the
approaches were ^overcd with a
dense growth of underbrush. He
says his mission was successful. He
was accompanied by Sam .Farrell.
Judge Leamy and family have
moved into their new residence.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30,1902
It has been suggested that Mayor
Holland is not especially opposed to
the V., V. •& E. coming into Grand
Forks—all he objects to is the road
crossing his line. He apparently figures it out that, the world being
round, there is nothing to prevent
the V., V. & E. going around the
other way and • coming in by the
North pole, or some other obscure
route. True, the line thus built
would have to cross a few oceans,
but it would get as solid a foundation there as the Hot Air has along
the Kettle river, where already the
track has slumped into the river,
carrying one of its three engines
with it, not to nlention the collapse
of the spider-web bridges. On the
other hand, the V., V. & E. considers this round-about way will not
be necessary, and expects to to start
work on the first contemplated route
as soon as the Hot Air injunction is
dismissed by the Ottawa government.
By the way, what has become of
that agitation started some time ago
by the ranchers of the valley against
the filthy Chinese truck-gardeners?
The question is one of such importance that nothing should be left undone to push it to a successful ending, especially at this season, wheu
the undesirables are delivering their
unsanitary products by the wagon-
loadto many unthinking purchasers
in town. Keep up the good work
started.
Several of Ottawa's mayors have
failed in business as a result of the
demands made upon their private
funds while in office. In Grand
Forks our mayors don't fail in their
own business, because they allow
city to run itself.
A pauallel competitive line appears to be a necessity to the Hot
Air officials—not necessarily in order to divert traffic from their road,
but merely as a guaranty that they
will reach the other end of their line
in safety.
As was stated as probable in these
columns a couple of weeks ago,
Thursday, October 16th, has been
fixed as Thanksgiving day throughout the Dominion of Canada.
The electrical storm on Friday
last was about as brilliant an affair
as ever occurred in Grand Forks—
excepting, of course, the opening
ihe Hot Air line.

WIJY 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 the
American continent?
This you can do by travelling on
thc 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 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. .

A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
Advanced.
The Cltv 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 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
Are. At present water is supplied the eity 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 wa.er,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of pieturesquesness and grandeur.
•J*
The Columbia A Western railway, whioh was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vanoouver, Victora A Eastern Railway oompany, 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 Paoifle railway oompany has large interests in the oity, having selected the site on account 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 »f
fertile agricultural land, 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 frnit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful in the district. Lumlier oan
be procured at fuir prices, and brick lime and stone of good
qnulity can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the lirst importance to this
country, and will do much to build up Coluinhiu. Lurge mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospect! a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter—the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
0\\*ing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
heautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth und prosperity, Columbia will be au 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
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

MINES AND MINING
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 5168 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 870 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 3872 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 930 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 280 tons; total
for past week, 11,120 tons; total for
1902, 336,989.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 5300 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 217,610 tons.
The wagon road from the Jewel
mine, Long Lake camp to the railway siding has lately been put in
good shape, and a resumption of
shipments is expected from that
mine.
G. H. Seeley, of Minneapolis, was
shown around the mines at Greenwood, last week, by D. A. Hol-
brook, after having visited a number of Slocan properties.
The visits of representatives of
several mining manufacturers during the past few days is regarded as
indicative of an expectation' that
times in the Bounday are improving. They certainly are, and the
machinery men evidently think so,
too, or they would not be seeking
new business here.
A. C. Flumerfelt, assistant manager of the Granby company, went to
Greenwood last Thursday with a
party of Eastern Townships bank
officials, who are visiting the larger
mines and the smelters of the Boundary. These were J. Mackinnon,
of Sherbrooke, Que.; W. L. Ball, of
Richmond, Que., and William Spier,
manager of the bank's branch in
this city.
This month has seen a decided
improvement in general business at
Eholt. The resumption of work at
the B. C. mine, situate about a mile
and a half from the town, is chiefly
responsible for this gratifying change
for the better. About 70 men are
now employed at the mine, Which,
is shipping an average of 130 to1140
tons of ore a day to the Boundary
Falls smelterr This ore is being
mined in tha old workings. A prospect shaft is being sunk on the
south end of the B. C. claim. This
is now down nearly 50 feet, and
some good ore has been met with in
it, but little is being said about it,
the object being to avoid raising
hopes that may not be realized
should the ore shoot not prove permanent. The prospects are favorable for its doing so, howaver.
Fred Hazelwood returned to
Greenwood this week. He went to
the much boomed Tonapagh district, and got nothing but typhoid
pneumonia, that carried off many a
man there. He hurried out before
the disease got a fatal grip on him,
and was in the hospital at Reno for
several weeks. He now considers
British Columbia is good enough
for him.—Times.
The Emma continues to ship ore
to the Hall Mines smelter at Nelson, giving employment to a small
force of men in mining it.
