feelings in a manner that was particularly pleasing to the local brethren.
There were thirty-five lodges represented at the gathering, embracing
almost every part of the continent.
It was unanimously agreed that
the banquet following the institution
was the greatest flow of reason and
feast of soul that Grand Forks has
ever seen, and it augurs well for
Masonro in this disirict that such a
large gathering of Masons was had
at the .initiation of the resident
brethren of Grand Forks.
CIVIC HOLIDAY
The mayor and council of the
city of Columbia request that, in respect to the memory of the late Alderman Robert Wasson, all business
within the city of Columbia, and
public works authorized by the city,
be suspended from 12 o'clock noon
till 4 o'clock p. m. on Saturday,
the 22d inst., to afford an opportunity to the friends of the family
to attend the funeral.
A M1DNIGHTJR0BBERY.
Between 1 and 2 o'clock Tuesday
night Tom Hayden was awakened
from his peaceful slumbers, at the
Province hotel. He imagined that
someone, who did not belong there,
was in his room. He rubbed his
eyes aiyl sat up in bed. As he did
so a man ducked down below the
foot of the bed. Tom called out,
"Who's there ; what do you want?"
"1 am looking for a room," replied
the intruder, coolly. "All right,"
says Tom ; "F11 show you one,'' and
he got up to carry out his intention.
When Tom and the stranger got out
in the passage, however, the man
made a bolt for the stairs, which he
descended three steps at a time.
•This made Tom suspicious, and ho
went back into the room to examine
his pockets, The examination disclosed the fact that 837 had disappeared. An alarm was given, and
the man, who gave hiB name as
Samuel E. Hendricks, was shortly
thereafter arrested down in the ' 'red
light" district, and $21.25 was recovered. At the trial, before Police
Magistrate Johnson at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, Hendricks pleaded
guilty and was sentenced to nine
months in jail at Nelson, B. C. On
the same evening the rooms at the
Owl and the Victoria were also entered, but the amount of the losses
could not be ascertained.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1902
Will Mayor Holland's pape
support Mr. Holland for mayor? Of
course, it is immaterial whether it
does _or not; but if it intends to do
so, it will have to stiffen its backbone
a bit. Disquisitions on the baneful
influences of looking at the new moon
over your left shoulder; the feasibility of widening the canals on
Mare, and the desirability of painting the sun spots green in order to
make them harmonize with Nature,
are proper treatises for sleepy times;
bnt when vital issues are up for settlement, they grate on the public
ear. Whet], the railway question
was the paramount issue in Boundary country, Mr. Holland's paper
wabbled all around the subject.
A former manager of the paper, in
speaking of his policy, used this curt
and elegant phrase: "The people
be d—d; I'm out for the stuff." Is
this still the motto of Mr. Holland's
paper? .
'•=
It may also be said that you ean
a ways count upon Alphonse and
Gaston being on the ground, whkh
is more than can be said of our
present mayor, who when not
spending his valuable time up in the
air, usually finds himself some hundreds of miles away from the community he is supposed to represent.
Thank goodness, this condition of
affairs has only a couple of more
months' existence.
Mayor Holland is reported to.
have confided to a gentleman in this
city that he "was not only going to
run for mayor again, but that he
was going to be elected." The
mayor must be joking. If he intends to run again, he should have
remained at home long enough during the past year to familiarize himself with the work of the office.
I k every man at present mentioned
as a mayoralty candidate in the next
municipal election votes' for himself, the result is likely to prove a
tie. Every elector in the city would
receive one vote.
STARTS WORK ON WEDNESDAY.
C. E. Lane, chief electrician at thc
Granby smelter, Was in Cascade on
Wednesday and Thursday making
final arrangements for the transmission of power to the big reduction
works on the hill. The power will
be ready within the next two days,
and with the couple of days required
for the "coupling on" and experimenting process, the middle of next
week will find the Granby smelter
running to its limit in every" department.
DIED
Wasson—In Columbia, on Thursday, Nov. 20, 1902, at 8 o'clock,
p. m., Robert Wasson, aged 33
years.
Deceased settled in this valley fifteen years ago, coming from the
north of Ireland. On arrival here
he took up the land upon which he
lived until last spring, when he
moved into town. He has been an
alderman of Columbia during the
past three years, and was an industrious, upright and highly respected
member of this community, and
universal regret is expressed at his
demise. He resided with his father
and two sisters, Sarah and Lizzie.
Mrs. E. Spraggett and Mrs. Frank
Ruckles are also sisters, all of whom
deeply mourn his loss.
The funeral, which will be held
under the auspices of the Oddfellows' lodge, of which deceased was
a member, will take place at 2
o'clock tomorrow from his late residence. All other fraternal societies
of which he was a member are invited to participate. The Oddfellows
will meet at their hall at 1p.m.,
and proceed to his late home, where
services will be held.
COLUMBIA CITY COUNCIL
The Columbia city council met
Tuesday evening, Mayor McCallum
presiding. Aldermen present: Mcintosh, Cusson, Disney -and Lagimodiere.
The following bills were ordered
paid: E. Spraggett, $177.45; J. A.
McCallum, $7.85; Evening Sun,
$33; A. Miller, $262-50.
Messrs. I. A. Dinsmore, J. A
McCallum and Chas. Hay were recommended to the lieutenant-governor in council as public works commissioners.
The water and light committee
appointed G. C. McGregor as foreman of the work of laying the 8-
inch water mains. The work is to
be commenced on Friday.
SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
W. H. P. Clement, barrister, who
has been attending the full court at
Vancouver during the past three-
weeks, returned to the city yesterday.
Dougal Maginnis, of the firm 61
Vaughn & Maginnis, pioneer ranchers of this valley, has returned from
a protracted holiday trip to the coast
cities, and is at present stopping at
the Pacific hotel. Mr. Vaughn is
very glad to see his old partner back.
What about that hockey rink?
The season is fast approaching for
the commencement of actual work.
In Knox Presbyterian church,
next Sunday morning, Rev. J. R.
Robertson will conduct memorial
services in honor of the late Robert
Wasson. Friends and all fraternal
societies of whicn the deceased was
a member are cordially invited to
attend.
As stated in The Sun last Week,
the work of laying the 8-inch water
mains for the Columbia waterworks
was commenced this morning under
the supervision of Foreman G. C.
McGregor, at the corner of Bridge
and Fourth streets.
The promenade social given under
the auspiees of the Catholic church,
in Biden's opera house last Tuesday
evening, was largely attended. An
excellent program was rendered, and
all present seent an enjoyable evening.
While making some repairs, on
Wednesday last, to one of the furnaces at the Granby smelter, which
had been "banked" for the purpose,
two of the employees were overcome
by the gaseous fumes. After a few
moments in dreamland, they returned to earth and their stern duties without any ill effects from their
unexpected trip.
If it takes eight or ten months for
the Hot Air railway to get its roadbed in shape after carrying a couple
of picnic parties, how would they
manage if a regular passengea service
were installed ? Not that it makes
any difference to the public, however.
Peter Donaldson left this morning
for Spokane, where he will purchase
a carload of choice and assorted fruit
for John Donaldson.^
All the custom and reserve matte
has been put through the Granby
converter.
The C. P,. R. section gang is repairing the tracks at the smelter
this week.
W. F. Thayer, of the Granby
hotel, and W. Fitzmorris, '■ P. Ter-
rian and Alex Baumgard returned

North Fork, above Bunch Grass
mountain. Thayer, FitziiKjrris and
Terrian each killed a deer.

Methodist church last Monday evening was largely attended, and was

musical program was rendered. Addresses were delivered by Rev. Mr.
Betts, who acted as chairman, Rev.
J. A. G. Calder, of Columbia, Rev.
O. W. Mintzer. of Spokane, and
Rev. J. R. Robertson. The following well known local talent made
the musical part of the program a

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 eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a chqioe of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, in-
eluding 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
lmprovements,*lncludlng 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 Btectric 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
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 I. not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-be.pang* rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, form-
Ing a charming combination of pleturesquesness and grandeur,    w
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Paciflo Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards iu the center of Columbia, and
th. Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, 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 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 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 ef
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated. A
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. ,
) A*
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. -.
The mining Interests areof the first importance Ito this
country, and will do much to build upColumbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter—the most modem
aud Arfect plant of the kind in America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the city.
Owing to the flue climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia Iwlll 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 oity in |il e Interior. IMPERIAL LIFE.
In reviewing the list of prominent
Canadian life insurance companies,
the "Imperial" of Toronto stands
out prominently on acGpunt of its
remarkably successful career. The
hoard of directors is ««nposed of
strong financiers and gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
business. This company na"R 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 8200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who arc patrons of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum
is agent at Columbia and Grand
Forks.

MINES AND MINING
It is expected that when the Granby smelter begins running at full
capacity the Jewel mine will resume
shipments to this city.
It is stated that as soon as the
Granby smelter is supplied with
power from Cascade the shipment
from the Granby mines at Phoenix
will average 54 cars per day, or
about 1600 tons.
At Danville (Nelson) annual assessment work is being generally
done, and it now begins to look as
though the oldest mining district on
the reservation would soon take on
a new lease of mining life. It certainly has never looked brighter for
the district than at present.
The Comstock-Le Fleur property
at Danville, for several years idle,
has been secured on a lease, and
two shifts are at work putting in a
station in the old shaft, a distance
of 40 feet from the surface, and will
drift on and extract the high-grade
ore lying in the vein at that point,
and from which the highest grade of
copper-gold ore thus far shipped out
of the reservation was taken by the
B. A. C. shortly after its purchase
of the property from the America^
owners.
A dispatch front Michel, B. G,
dated the 18th inst., announces that
the strike of the coal miners of the
Crow's Nest Coal company at that
point has been settled and that thc
miners have resumed work.

Cut to Piece©
BUT STILL LIVING
We may be slow in Columbia, but we get there
all the same; and whilst we do not sell for cash
ONLY, we are SHARP enough to CUT prices for
SPOT CASH just as low as they do in Grand
Forks. We will go one better, and still continue
the custom of credit to those who deserve it.
BUT IT IS
AND IT IS
AND IT IS
HTHAT TALKS,
WE ARE AFTER,

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
tie intelligence of thc millions,
Prof. Hicks, through his great Almanac, and his famous family and
scientific journal, Word and. Works,
is doing a work for thc 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 DOM, forecasts of
storms and weather are given as
never before, forjfevery day in tbe
year, all charmingly illustrated with
nearly two hundred engravings.
The price of single Almanac, including postage and mailing, is thirty
cents. Word uml Works with the
Almanac is 81.00 a year. Write to
Word and Wokks Publishing Co.,
2201 Locust Street, St. Louis, Mo.,
and prove to yourself their great
value.
