VOL 1
GRAND FORKS AND COLUMBIA, B.C. TUESDAY, AUGUST 5, 1902. NO. 179
J. J. HILL'S SPEECH
James J. Hill, president of the Great
Northern, arrived in Grand Forks
shortly after 5 Saturday evening, after
a tour of inspection of the W. & G. N.
as far as Republic. His part included
his son, Lonis W. Hill, Chief Engineer
John F. Stevens; J. W. Blabon, fourth
vice president; Peter Siems, contractor, and F. S. Forest, district superintendent of theS. F. & N. He was welcomed by prominent citizens, including J. P. Graves, general manager, and
A. C. Fluuirrfelt, assistant ueneral
manager, r spectively, of the GrHnby
company; |. H. Kennedy, chiel engineer ol the V., V. & E ; 1 he aldermen
of tl e two cities; the presidents of the
Grand Forks and Columbia boards of
trade; Acting Mayor Harvey; Mayor
McCallum; J. B. Henderson and Geo.
A. Fraser.
Alter a visit to the smelter, Mr. Hill
met a large delegation at the Yale
hotel. Acting Mayor Harvey gave an
address of welcome, which also expressed the hope that Mr. Hill wou d
build a spur to the Granby smelter,
with branch lines to Phoenix, aud up
the North Fork.
Mr. Hill slid it was always a pleasure to him to meet people who were
euga'ed in tne country where his interests "were located. It had been the
wont of bis life on tbe frontier t>open
up new countries. His interests had
been on both sides of the line. Some
of the audience might know that lor
some time he was interested with the C.
P. R. At one time he owned one-
tenth, but now he did not own a dollar, though lie sometimes got the ci edit
of having bought it A railroad line in
to a new country must bear its share of
all burdens. A railway into the Garden of Eden, if there were no one
there but Adam and Eve, would not
be a paying investment. There i- only
one thing that a railway deals in, and
that was transp utation. Tbe public
will not pay them for their cars standing idle. The greater amount a
railway can move ihe lower a
rrtte it can tie moved for. A small
charge has to he p-tul. which is ke I as
small as possible. For the purpose of
it ustration, he gave the charge as
$100,000, and said that it the amount
of tons 10 be moved were 100,000, the
rate was easy to figure per ton. If,
however, 200,000 hud been moved at
the same charge, the rate per ton
would be only half ihe previ ius figures He said iu some cases per baps
they hail gone a little ahead of tip*
times, but they did not want in go
backward now or at sny other time.
Their worx hid b en on the li en ol
building railways thatcould carry the
the business of the country at prices
that the pr iducer could afford to pay.
Whatever we have here must be assembled somewhere where it could be
handled and sei t to a market where
a profit could be made. They could not
build up theii prospj ity on the idea
that we were going to work our mines,
smelters, farms, etc., at a loss
for- their benefit. We would have
to share in tbe benefits. It would be
harder for them to stop than for us.
Once they have identifi-d themselves
with a country they have to keep on
with it for all lime. Thev were prepared to stand or tall wi'h it. His
bearers might have heard tbat the
railroad company had spent too much
money   in   tbeir  road, but they had
only   spent  sufficient to have a good
road.   A good road is as essential  to
railways as deep water is to  shipping.
Sometimes tbe public have a   way   ol
encouraging railways, such as  by   bo-
n using them, tor instance the C. P. R.
On the othei hand, when he  sold out
of it they made haste slowly, aud built
without any bonus.    He lor bis   part
did   not   want any bonus, and a rail
road   that  could not live   without a
bonus, would made a very  poor show
with   01.e   [cheers.]   Some   one   had
called our city   the Gateway City, and
we must make it such, and  go  along
the lines of least resistance.   His road
was ready to come into Grand Forks,
or any other place where   they   could
go.   A   railroad   is   like a river, the
feeders ol the former   increasing   tbe
traffic as the little streams increase the
flow ot water in the latter.    He said a
great many people think that because
1 hey had commenced at this end (hat
thev were going to end there.   What
they  wauted  was to get a good road
and go right   through.   Tbey did not
want,   however,  to build a road con
sisti 11 a; of a series of toboggan   slides.
They had to seek and follow the lines
of   least   resistance, and low grades.
They were not asking for any   bonus,
nor for anything more than an   opportunity to demonstrate that somethings
can be done.   When they went to the
Pacific coast, and  to Lake  Superior,
and St. Paul, the rate on lumber   was
90  cents   a   hundred, and to Chicago
$1.15.    He asked the lumbermen there
at what rate they could ship tbeir lumber   in,   and  they said tbey thought
that if they could get a rateot 60 cents
they would be happy.    He made it   a
rate of 40 cents.   The stumpage then
I was 70 cents a thousand.   The difference on sluinage on stumpage on Pu
get   would   build   their railway from
the Sound over the main range of tbe
Rocky mountains.   Of course they did
; not get that money, but somebody did.
It was said that their road could   not
take cotton   fiom Texas, but they did
take it, and took it off other trains aud
carried it.   He hoped that tbey would
j be   able   to  do   tomething here that
j would make us think they had b.en of
I service  to us.   He  would like to see
I things tbat he is engaged   in success-
• ful.   He did not want to be connected
j with   anything   tbat was not success-
: ful.   They   bad   a   little road in the
Crow's Nest that he was not  ashamed
of,   and   could  haul 2000 tons with a
single engine.   Their grade here   was
a reasonably good one—31 feet to the
! mile was not heavy.   He sent tne first
' engineers into this country, intending
to build his lines through the Crow's
! Nes1, bu' the government object. This
\ line.it bad been proposed, would also
traverse   tbe   Lardeau    country and
s:rie   Ihe   present   C. P. R. line  at
MlitHwap   lake.    He   was   kept  busy
from ilinriiW till HUht  by   questions
from   all   elon.'  the line, and tl e-e is
only one rule he could e,o by, anil th it
is lo try to do what tUey   have   to   as
lliev ought to do it.    He did no' w.inl
10 leave any unllni-hed "thrums,"
wh.ch   he   went  on   to explain  wa-
Scotch for the fag-end of a   piece   of
string—and be did not want to   be the
fag-end of a string; he wan ed  to finish.    He Imped people would soon gel
through voting bonuses, as there is a
limit to what people can  promise—at
least to what people can perlorm    As
soon as their engineers  could   finn   a
feasible   route they  were prepared to
build through  from   both ends.    Ihe
snow was now   nearly all   e< ne, and
they would not have that difficulty   to
contend with.   He wished to say  that
he was quite grateful to us for having
met  bim   in  such a neighborly way.
He  had   lived   under both flags, and
took a great interest in  this  country.

Some of his greatest friends lived under this and the British flairs, including
those who were so largely interested
with him that thev were very near t he
head ot the ladder. He said he thought
hie railway interests must be of great
consequence, as some one once said
that if anything happened to it the
house ol Brunswick would fall. There
had been certain difficulties in the way
of entering Grand Forks, but, he facetiously observed,, he did not know
what those difficulties were. He
thought that some one did not want
them to come io. They hid a nice,
easy way to come in, and he did not
think their wheels would slide on the
rails. He said he had nothing against
his C. P. R: friends. He wanted to be
good neighbors with every one, but on
the other hand if they did no want
them, he hoped they could get along,
at any rate they would try. He did
not kuow just what the difficulties
were, but he hoped tbey would be
rooted out: He said many people
think tbey are going; to carry-some-
thing out of the country, but they
could not do so without being allowed
to. People have got to live on both
sides of the line. We had a great
many people from the other side of the
line, and he hoped we would alwas be
friends. He said British Columbia had
the natural resources here, quite   dif
ferent from the o'her place south, viz.,
large quantities of low-grade ore. It
is not exactly what we would like, but
it is what we must have.
He then thanked Ihe assembly for
their kindness in meeting him,and
lelt to catch his special tra n.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, 190a
The best news that bee been received'
in   the city  lor some time, was that I
flashed over the wires yesterday saying
the  Fernie   Btrike   had  been ended.:
There is only one other  event that
could put tbe people of tbis city   in a j
better humor, if  possible,   than   tbe
above intelligence, and that would be
the  announcement that  the Hot Air
injunction had been smashed.
STRIKE SETTLED
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 4.—Hon. |.
D. Prentice, minister of finance, received the following telegram from
Col. Pior, minister of mines, now visiting Fernie:
"The Coal company and miners
have just now signed an agreement in
my proence declaring the strike off,
the men to go to work immediately.
[Signed] E. G. Prior."
The visit of the minister to Fernie
was especially made with the object
of securing the result achieved.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
Henry White and E. W. Liljegran
returned, last Saturday, from their
prospecting trip to their coal claims
up the North Fork. They report
having discovered numerous surface
tracings of a superior quality - ot coal,
and feel well pleased with the results
of their journey. They do not doubt
the existence of coal in sufficiently
larue bodies to make the mining ol it
a profitable commercial undetaking.
The great drawback to the development of the district, they say, is the
lack ol transportation facilities and
the wretched condition of tbe roads.
Messrs. White and Liljegran are mining men ol long aud varied experience,
and they are no in the habit of speaking favorably of a camp unless they
have some foundation on which to
base their asseitions.
Last night's council meeting in
Grand Forks was a record breaker so
far as brevitv is concerned. All the

The British Columbia Copper company received a telegram yesterday
from the Crow's Nest Pass Coal company, at Fernie, advising that the
miners' strike was settled and that
shipments of coal and coke to the
Mother Lode mine and Greenwood
smelter would be resumed as soon as
possible.
Work on tbe wagon road between
this city and Phoenix is at present in
progress. Between $300 and $4oo will
be expended in putting it in better
condition.
Complications having set in, the

COLUMBIA
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 and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are (low under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light syst m will Include street arc lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on n 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
iu Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling water,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesjiess and grandeur.
J*
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paoiflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Tlctora 4 Eastern Railway company, 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 Pucifie railway company has large interests iu the eity, 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,
J*
Throughout the Kettle River valley there is an 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 Coliimbiu,
divided Into small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population,
llulldliig material is plentiful in the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality eau always lie obtained when required.
The milling interests areof the first importance to this
country, ami will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodeS have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to the city, und what were mere prospects a short
time sinee me now lurge paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter-the most modern
aud perfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the line climate, the central situation, the
beautilile environments, the bright prospects for future
growth ami prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as "well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when Hnully allied and wedded to her sister city,
will lis the   best   «ml largest city in the interior. 1
