Grand Forks and Columbia, B. C.   Friday, December 12, 1902.
No. 12
Cascade Power Will Soon Be
Transmitted to Smelter Again,
The accident to the Cascade power
house is not as serious as was at first
reported, and the latest information
is to the effect that the company will
again commence supplying the
Granby smelter with electric power
by Monday next.
On Tuesday afternoon about 3
o'clock the valve broke in the overflow pipe and the rush of water carried away a portion of the wall of
the power house facing the C. P. R.
track. The place where the trouble
arose is where the surplus water,
not going over the turbines, is carried off, a jam at the valve there
turned this overflow against the
brickwork of the building and in a
few moments the rush of water had
eaten its way through and carried
away a slice of the western wall.
Some slight damage was also caused
by the flooding of the premises, but
this can be readily repaired.
Most fortunately the portion of
the wall carried away had none of
the machinery attached to it, the
transformers being fixed on another
portion of the building. The company's lately installed and thoroughly up-to-date plant has not been
damaged or interfered with in any
way.
COLUMBIA CITY COUNCIL
The Columbia city council met
Tueday evening, all the aldermen
being present,, with Mayor McCallum in the chair. City Clerk J. A.
McCallum, being indisposed, was
unable to attend.
Bills ordered paid: E. Spraggett,
filling pier in bridge, $100; W. T.
Dickson, inspecting electric light
system, 830.
Mayor McCallnm reported that
$2500 more of city bonds had been
sold.
W. T. Dickson, of the West Kootenay Electric Supply company, Nelson, B. O, having inspected the Columbia electric light system, sent in
his report, to thc council, which was
satisfactory and approved.
Mr. Cuming's proposition for
grading Bridge street was taken up,
and a very carefully drafted resolution, avoiding all risk and responsibility to the city, but adopting the
proposition, was unanimously
passed.
OUR MINERAL WEALTH
With the year drawing to a close
mining men are beginning to total
up British Columbia's mineral production during 1902, and he is a
pessimist indeed who does not concede an advance of 25 per cent over
1901. The production that year
was officially given at |20,086,760,
so that the lowest estimate this year
is $25,000,000. But the latest figures
from the Boundary, the Slocan,
Rossland, Atlin, Cariboo and Vancouver island justify one in predicting that the annual report of the department of mines will show the
figures to be nearer $27,500,000 than
$25,000,000, while next year may
seethe $30,000,000 mark passed.
It will thus be seen that British
Columbia, even with the copper,
lead and silver markets working
against it, is twice a Klondike, for
he would be a bold man indeed who
would place the Yukon's output this
year at over $15,000,000.
That there is every reason to be
optimistic concerning this year's
production is evident from the first
speech delivered by the minister of
mines since he became premier.
Col. Prior stated at th3 banquet of
the Victoria pinef rs that he was emphatically of the opinion that the
mining industry was on a good basis.
Great progress is being made in the
Boundary. Said he: "The Rossland mines are today shipping more
ore than ever before in their history;
from the Slocan 100,000 tons of
zinc ore will be shipped next year
into the United States; the Atlin
district is most prosperous, and 1
am happy to say that a new era of
prosperity is setting in in the Cariboo."
The premier, dealing particularly
with the latter district, pointed out
how on Lightning creek, famous the
world over for the millions it has
produced, old man Montgomery, 80
years, of age, is cleaning up $100
slugs, and had in the past few
months obtained 140 ounces of
coarse gold. On the Point claim,
in the same district, they are getting 50 ounces to the pan, and the
other day took out 150 ounces. He
regretted to say that want of water
had prevented the Consolidated
Cariboo, the largest hydraulic mine
in the world, doing well this season,
but the outlook for next year was
good. .
The figures so far.available for the
Boundary and Rossland show the
great stride forward that have been
made in those districts. The Boundary leads the rest of the province
in ore production, it having given
457,598 tons during the past eleven
months, with the prospect of reaching the half million mark ere the
year closes. The productian there
last year was 386,675 tons, so there
will be a betterment of at least 100,-
000 tons in 1902. In Rossland
there has already been an increase
over 1902 by 38,327 tons, and before December 31th 20,000 tons
should be added, which would make
thc total output of that famous
camp nearly 340,000 tons, compared
with 280,000 tons, in round figurcB,
in 1901.

FRIDAY,    DECEMBER 12, 1902
There are two elements in Grand
Forks—one in favor of progress and
prosperity; the other, selfishness
and stagnation. It will soon be up
to the voters to decide which class
they prefer at the head of offices this
coming year.
Mayor Holland is now the manager of the News-Gazette. From a
great railway magnate, with a palatial private car, to the menial position of dunning delinquent sub-
scribersjin order to pay the printers—
' 'What a fall was there, my countrymen!"
Here is a.partial list of the men
who have thus far been mentioned
for mayoralty honors:
P. T. McCallum, Martin Burrell,
Chas. Cumings,    Wm. Graham,
H. A. Sheads,      J. Hammar.
If you don't see the candidate you
want, just mention his name, and
we will add it to our list.
COUNTY COURT DATES
His Honor Judge Leamy has set
the following dates for the holding
next year of sittings of the county
court at Greenwood and Grand
Forks, respectively:
Greenwood—January 13, March
17, May 12, July 14, October 13,
and December 15.
. Grand Forks—January 5, March
!), May 4, July 6, October 5, and
December 7.
Chambers at Greenwood on first
and fourth Thursdays of each month,
or every week should more frequent
attendances of thc judge be required.
Chambers at Grand Forks whenever necessary.
County court was held at Greenwood last Tuesday, and will be held
in tbis city next Tuesday.
A DANGEROUS PRACTICE
Editor Evening Sun:
Will you allow me space to protest against the dangerous practice of
driving horses without bells on our
streets these days? I think there is
a law that every vehicle on runners
must be equipped with bells. Even
if there isn't, such a law is needed
for the protection of pedestrians.
Now that there has been such a
heavy fall of snow, the condition of Grand Forks and Columbia
makes it necessary for pedestrians to
take the roads, and in   consequence
thair safety demands that approaching cutters and sleighs give notice of
their coming. A sleigh slips along
without any noise; a string of bells
attached serves as warning note.
For the pleasure of both driver and
walker these shoiild be attached.
Pedestrian.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
The sleighing party under the
auspices of the Ladies' Aid society
of the Methodist church, which took
place last evening, to the residence
of Mr. W. H. 'Covert, at Carson, was
in every regard a great success. As
the well equipped turnouts from the
stables of Messrs. Manly & Rutherford and Mr. Royer, affording every
comfort to their merry occupants,
neared their destination, many ex*
elaniations of delight were heard at
pretty sight presented by the large
residence, beautifully illuminated
from floor to attic with Chinese lanterns. After a couple of hours' enjoyment of music and games in the
large parlors, refreshments were
served and an informal program
rendered. After a hearty vote of
thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Covert for
their genial hospitality, the party
returned to the city, all greatly
pleased with the evening's enjoyment.
The body of Thomas Begley, the
unfortunate carpenter who was killed
at Cascade on Monday last by receiving a shock of electricity while
doing telephone work, wasjbrought to
this city Wednesday, and an inquest
was held same day. Yesterday the
remains \fere shipped to Begley's
former home in Brockville, Ont.
Deceased was a cousin of Mrs. Fred
Cooper and Sam Baker, of this city.
Electric men say that the accident
was probably caused by induction,
brought about by the recent heavy
snow fall, but it is possible that the
private wire of the company in some
way came in direct contact with the
power cable.
At the Methodist church next
Sunday Rev. J. F. Betts will preach
morning and evening. The subject
for his morning sermon will be,
"The Witness of the Spirit to Our
Adoption into the Family of God";
evening,' 'ADivine Commonwealth.''
Alderman J. J. Mcintosh made a
business trip to Republic last Saturday, returning home Monday.
About 7 o'clock last evening fire
broke out in Brown & McKay's
Boundary Iron Works, near the C.
P. R. track across the Kettle river.
An alarm was sent in, and the Grand
Forks fire department responded
promptly. The flames were soon
extinguished. The only damage
done was the partial burning of the
roof of the building.
The Sunday school scholars of the
Columbia Presbyterian church will
have an old-fashioned Christmas
tree and musical entertainment in
the Baptist church on Monday evening, December 22. An excellent
program of 24 numbers, consisting
of dialogues, recitations and songs,
has been prepared. All the children
in Columbia are cordially invited to
attend.
Great preparations! are being
made for the Christmas tree entertainment and cantata to be given by
the Knox Presbyterian church Sunday school, in the Biden opera
honse, on Tuesday evening, December 23. Preseent indications point
to a grand success.
City Clerk J. A. McCallum is confined to his home this week with a
severe attack of the grip.
The east-bound C. P. R. passenger train was delayed seven hours
yesterday by the derailment of a
Hot Air ore train.
At Knox Presbyterian church next

will take for his morning theme,
"Lowering the Standard"; evening,

What Gould Said of "Other
People's Money."—Jay Gould,
when he was asked one time how
he attained his riches, answered:
"By playing with other people's
money." The same answer might
be given by the character, ' 'Hutchinson Hopper," in the comedy
"Other People's Money." The
piece is written on legitimate lines;
is clean, bright, witty and probable.
The scenes and characters are drawn
from modern every-day life; and the
principal personage, ' 'Hutchinson
Hopper," is a creation that will live
on the stage for years to come. The
story of the comedy is natural and
full of humor. "Hutchinson Hopper" is a millionaire stock broker,
happy in the contemplation of his
own adroitness, and beli eves himself
able to cope', not only with hi s colleagues, but with any combinatio n
of circumstauces. This excellent
company, supporting Dainty May
Sargent, will fill an engagement here
next Thursday night, December 18,
at the Opera House.

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 not 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 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 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 east
ern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and Vest, 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 perfect 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,
*/,r HFUL CLIMATE AND BOUNTIFUL
RESOURCES-SPLENDID ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND WATERWORKS SYSTEMS-THE
RAILWAY CENTRE OF SOUTHEASTERN
BRITISH COLUMBIA.
The City of Columbia Is situated near She junction of
the North Forks of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river, and is distant about JOO miles east of Vanoouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Bleetrle Light and
Waterworks Systems are dow under eoustruetlon, and will be
completed In September. The electric light sysfm 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
lire. At present water is supplied the oity 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 ot bright, sparkling water,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a obarmlng combination of pleturesquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia 4 Western railway, whleh was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards In tha oenter of ColumWa, and
the Tancouver, Tiotora * Eastern Railway eompany, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east lino
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian Pacifle railway eompany has large Interests in the oity, having selected the site on account of tho 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 of
fertile agricultural land, part of which Is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries land all tho small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrouudlng |Columbia,
divided into small frnlt and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, aud brick lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
Tho mining Interests oreof 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 oity, 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 tha kind in America—employing  hun-.
dreds of men, Is contiguous to the oity.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia "will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as Iwell as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her sister city,
will be the best  and largest city in    lie iiwiii.i.

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
The difficulties in the way of the
Waterloo Consolidated Mining and
Milling company, Spokane, obtaining a clear title to the Waterloo
mine, Camp McKinney, are in a fair
way towards settlement. The Waterloo claim was relocated last August by George M. Bennett, and in
October by R. B. Venner. Conveyances^ Venner to Waterloo company, consideratton $260, and Ben-
nott to sanie company, consideration
$1000, are now filed for record at
the mining recorder's office, Greenwood. The action against the company commenced by Bennett's
lawyers for injunctions forbidding
the company trespassing on ground
claimed by Bennett, and for declaration that company's claim is hot a
valid one, is to be discontinued
forthwith.
The B. C. Copper company is
having manufactured in Spokane a
slag elevator for use at its smelter at
•Greenwood. The elevator will be
fitted witu a series of buckets that
will receive the full flow of water
and slag and raise it a height of 50
feet. This will allow of the dump
being filled up level with the furnace floor, and will, it is estimated,
provide for the expeditious and
economical disposal of the slag from
two furnaces for two or three years,
by which time it is likely the company will hav# put in a tramway
with cars and a small locomotive or
elecric motor for handling the slag.
The elevator should be reaeived at
the smelter by the middle of the
present month, and be in operation
three or four days after arrival on
the ground.
About the fifteenth of the month
the Sunset smelter, at Boundary
Falls, expects to have the second
furnace ready for operation, and the
third, which was recently ordered in
Spokane, is to be ready for use in
March next.
It is reported that Elmer J. Edwards, one of the owners of the Blue
Jay, in Skylark camp, has taken a
lease and bond on the property, and
-will work the mine this winter. It
is one of the best known properties
in the camp, but has not been
worked for a couple of years or
more. t
A 10-pound chunk of a very rich
ore from the Providence mine is now
on view at the Russell-Law-Caulficld
company's store in Greenwood. It
has much native and ruby silver
freely scattered through the quartz,
and here and there free gold is to be
seen. The specimen is to be taken
to Chicago by M. F. Madden to exhibit to his fellow investors in thc
Providence.
The Abercraig mineral claim,
owned by G. Arthur Rendell, of
Eholt, and J. N. Paton and G. B.
Taylor, o^ Greenwood, has been
leased under working conditions to
four Greenwood miners. The claim
is situated on the hill overlooking
Greenwood.
