To the Victoria Board of
Trade Appear to Favor
Hill's Road,
In his speech to the members of
the Victoria board of trade, Hon. A.
G. Blair, minister of railways, made
the following reference to Mr. Hill
and the V., V. & Railway:
Mr. Blair referred to an interview
he had had with Mr. J. J. Hill
at St. Paul, since starting on his
present trip, and informed his hearers that Mr. Hill had spoken in
high tenns of the resources and
prospects of British Columbia. Mr.
Hill was deeply interested in the
province, and particularly in the
V., V. & E. railway. At the same
time, he had pointed out twb things
which the people of British Columbia should seriously realize: First,
that an improvement was necessary
in the conditions affecting labor.
How that could be effected the minister was not prepared to offer any
suggestion; but they must all see how
serious had been the consequences
of the existing order of things upon
the industries of the province. In
this connection, Mr. Hill had shown
that he undestood the profitable
mining of low-grade ores in the
Boundary Creek and other districts
turned very largely upon the transportation facilities which could be
offered for the transmission of coal
;uid coke. In the next place, the
carriage of ores to thc smelters was a
problem which had to be worked
out. Mr. H/ll had expressed himself as ready to take up these matters with energy, and among other
things, to prosecute the ei instruction
ofthe V., V. & E. railway with all
possible" cxpedtion. Mr. Blair believed tbat when these conditions to
w.liieh he had alluded had been adjusted, Mr. Hill would not wait to
ask government aid from either the
Dominion or the province. It would
be well for everybody interested in
thc welfare of the country to recognize the futility of expecting that
any government could place its
hands in thc exchequer, for means to
aid in thc construction of all railways. This did not, of course, apply to trunk lines or to railways
opening up agricultural district's;
but until development of mineral*
and other resources had been carried
to the extent of demonstrating that
traffic was assured, the government
would not lie justified in granting
subventions.

TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The indications are that a hockey
rink will be erected in Grand Forks
for the coming winter. The game
made such a popular hit last winter
that the public are hoping a team
will again represent the city. Nothing elaborate is contemplated—a
12-foot fence with a canvas roof may
serve. A central situation with a
weekly game between town and
smelter teams would prove attractive, and from these a good team
could be chosen to meet outsiders.
The ladies of the Methodist congregation will hold a Thanksgiving
social in the chuich on Thursday
evening. Everybody cordially invited.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER  14,  1902.
It appears that the people of Edmonton have also had their railway
troubles. But with them waiting
ceased to be a virtue, and so they
organized a little party and sallied
forth to help in connecting a spur
line with the C. & E. There was no
rioting or disorder. Everything was
done peaceably. In the Boundary,
however, we are more law-abiding,
or shall we say timid, and prefer to
wait. But if the end were not in
sight, we venture the prediction that
n baker's dozen could be found in
this vicinity who. Would be willing
to adopt the pkn so successfully
carried out by the Edmontonites.

he Looked After the mere details of
conducting a Railway Project—a
novel sort of Affair, which had
already been Running Loose wrong
end first for some time. Either
Job was Too Big for the Guy, but
he sort of held on, hoping something
or somebody would come to his
Rescue. 'But they didn't, as they
were  Busy  themselves  building a
Real Railway. Then the Guy would the Wheels of Progress with Hot
Meander away to Think to himself
of some Scheme to delay the Real
Railway while he became a Bigger
Attraction than ever. His. own
Railway Toy in the meantime was
left to Shift for itself—he even forgot to build a Track to his Roundhouse, and the Engines, such as they
were, had long sessions of Rest on
side-lines. But he soon Ceased to
be an Attraction either at Home or
Abroad. You see, if he Exercised
the Power he had Usurped, he would
Sacrifice his own Railway; and if
he followed the Erratic Course   laid
get out of this Dilemma he hustled
back East to get Advice from his
Guardians. They didn't know what
to do about the Power he had taken
upon himself, but as Regards the
Railway, they concluded that he
didn't.Fill the Bill. So he "Resigned." The Citizens Attended
to the other Part of the Affair.

[with apologies to no one.]
Once upon a time there was a
Truly Wise Homeseeker who left the
Pleasures of the East to Get Next to
some Hot Stuff in the West, So, of
course, he came to Grand Forks.
This whs some time ago, before
Grand Forks had Hit its Gait. The j
Homeseeker, whom we shall call A
Wise Guy; for Short, wasn't So
Much himself, but he had Connections in thc East who were the Real
Goods, and with this Influence at
his Command, he counted on Being
In on every Good Thing going. He
wasn't particular, however, as to the
opening, and was willing to Let
Loose on anything from Raising
Frogs to Building a Railroad—on
other people's Money. He already
had good Local Standing and a Big
Say in the handling of the Undeveloped Part of the town, but what
he Hankered for was Power, land
Wires were laid with that End in
View. But the Wires Crossed—
others wanted Power, too. But the
Guy sung a Promising Song, and he
landed the Job—because the other
Candidate Pulled Out. He turned

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 Rooky 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 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 thc 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 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 aud 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, and insuring ample protection from the ravages of
Are. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
I
The natural situation of the city for beauty Is "*"«»"<4
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
pralX traversed by a river of bright. >»">»«*•£•
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of plcturesquesness aud grandeur.
The Columbia * Western railway, which was constructed
by the CanadlanPaclfloKallway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards In the center of Columbia, and
the Vanoouver, Viotora * Eastern Railway company, ha.
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 Pacifle railway company has large Interests in the city, 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 Can-
ado-part of the summer is rather hot and dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
JA
Throughout the Kettle Kiver valley there is an extent ml
fertile agricultural land, part of which is uow 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.
Iliiildlng material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
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 uow 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.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth aud 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
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
largje 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
