C.F.Packard Asks for $25,-
600 for Malicious Prosecution.
A Republic dispatch says that
service was had on the representative of the Kettle Valley lines last
Saturday in a. suit for $25,600 damages for malicious prosecution. The
suit was c mme: ced by C. F. Packard several i ays ago. Mr. Packard
was formerly in the commissary department of the Republic & Grand
Forks Construction company, which
was virtually the Republic & Grand
Forks Railway company, known as
the Kettle Valley lines. He left the
service of the company in April,
when construction was completed.
In examining his accounts an item
of $239,28 was found to have been
received but not accounted for in
ledger or journal. The cash book
was missing. Mr. Packard was arrested at Grand Forks and detained
for some time under bond, but was
acquitted recently by the county
court at Grand Forks.
He produced a check showing that
the money had been paid an official
of the road. The cash book not being found, left this check the only
existing evidence of the settlement.
Stoll & McDonald, of Spokane, are
attorneys for Mr. Packard.
To an Evening Sun representative
a couple of days ago, Mr. Packard
stated that at the final settlement
between himself and the company
there was another payment made of
$103.30. The evidence in the case,
he said, as given before Judge
Leamy showed conclusively who
the thief was.
It has been unofficially reported
that J. .1. Hill and his associates
have secured a 99-ycar lease of tbe
Calgary & Edmonton railway. The
purpose'of the acquisition is to se
cure an outlet from the rich wheat
regions of western Canada to the
Great Northern-Northern Pacific
system.
The Great Northern is replacing
the ten hundred class of passenger
engines with a nine thirty class on
the western division. Thc new engines are as large as the ten hundred
class, but have smaller drivers, thus
making them mountain climbers.
The big driver engines will be sent
east, and used exclusively east of
the Rocky mountains.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
John Nelson, a city indigent, died
at the Granby hotel last Sunday
evening. The immediate cause of
death was an attack of apoplexy,
brought on by an affection of the
brain, pronounced pracically incurable, and from which he had suffered for some time. When his
supper was brought him in the
evening, he was in good spirits and
appeared to be as well as he has
been at any time within a months,
but a' few moments later, when a
waiter came to remove the dfshes,
he was in his death throes. Dr.
Kingston was hastily summoned,
but the man had passed beyond
medical aid, and he expired in a
few minutes. The remains were interred yesterday afternoon.
Sixteen tickets were sold yesterday morning by Ticket Agent Mc-
Daniels, of the Great Northern, for
the Interstate fair at Spokane.
Among those who bought tickets
were L. A. Manly, Mrs. A. B. W.
Hodges, Al. Traunweiser, George
O'Keefe, Wm. Spier and wife, and
Mrs. W. A. Williams.
• The converter plant at the Granby
smelter began working two shifts
each day yesterday, and will probably continue two weeks in order to
clean up the large amount of matte
which has accumulated during the
past couple of weeks. In the mean-
rime, owing to the low water and
decreased power, one furnace has
been closed down temporily.
"Candy Jack" has sustained his
reputation as a fisherman by securing another "whopper," which
weighed 81b. 11 oz,—just 1 lb. 10 oz.
heavier than, his other big fish which
won the first prize in the recent fishing contest. Jack's "lines lie in
pleasant places," all right.
The harvest thanksgiving services
in the Holy Trinity church, Grand
Forks, last Sunday were very largely
attended. The musical numbers
were Charmingly rendered by the
choir, and the work of the organist,
F. J. Painton, was faultless.
After a five weeks' sojourn in the
Cottage hospital, Dave Clark, the
carpenter, has got the 1 tetter of his
attack of typhoid fever, and is gaining health and strength at a remarkable rate.
A large number of local sportsmen spend these Sundays chasing
after the grouse. The exercise does
them good, and the birds don't
mind it.
Isn't it about time our local athletes made arrangements for some
sort of a game here on Thanksgivin
day, 16th inst?

They will thoroughly dtfver a considerable territory which has so far
been practically unexplored. They

The boast made by Tracy W.
Holland, that he will be the first
Mayor of the amalgamated city,
comes with very bad grace. The
fact that amalgamation comes into
force on January 1st next, whereas
Mr. Holland's term as Mayor of
Ciiand Forks does not expire until
the lollowing m aith, woVild seem to
indicate that he may preside for a
short while as chief magistrate. But
if he imagines he can secure a second
term, in any capacity whatever, by
the vote of the people, at the municipal board, he surely has not read
public opinion aright. The people
of this city have acted very generously with their Mayor, possibly because it was his first offence, and,
possibly, also, because they understood he did not appreciate he was
assuming a responsibility he could
not shoulder/- However, the people
will deal with Mr. Holland next
election—if he seeks municipal honors—witb-the full remembrance of
his previous poor record ; and that
means relegation to the ''also ran"
class.

GRAND FORKS COUNCIL
At the regular meeting of the
Grand Forks city council on Monday night all the members were
present, except A.ld. Harvey and
Mayor Holland, both on leave of
absnee. After the adoption of the
minutes, the following bills were ordered paid : W. H. Fisher, $55; C.
A. Stoess, $1; Michael McTigh, $1;
C.P.R., $1.80; Itter <fc Askew, $3.65;
J. Taylor, $18; I. Gill, $5; Pattison
& Anderson, $5.50; J. W. Jones,
$60; J. R. McDonald, $34.50; J. M.
Simpson, $6.50; F. N. White, $18;
Black Hawk Livery, $2*1; Model
Livery, $15; W. Stewart, $24.50;
W. K. C. Manly, $24.60; Boundary
Ironworks, $1840.
The city clerk then read the
monthly statemeut, and Acting
Mayor Sheadj, on behalf of the public works committee, reported that
he was getting on well with the putting in of street crossings, repairing
of streets and laying' of sidewalks.
At his request it was decided to go
on and lay a walk up'to the front of
the new schoolhouse. A resolution
passed as a result of an informal
meeting of the council last Tuesday
then came up for ratification. It
dealt with a resolution signed by
members of the Bar association asking that J. K. Johnson be removed
from the small debts court, and
stated that the council was not in
sympathy with same, and urged that
he be retained in office. Aid. Don
aldson„ who through an oversight
had not been notified of the Tues
day meeting, was opposed to the
resolution, stajting that the council
were there to represent the wishes of
the people, and not their own pri
vate feelings, and that he and all the
council knew that for thc last three
years the public had -been anxious
foa a change, and that he for one
could not endorse the resolution ordered sent on Tuesday. Acting
Mryor Sheads then reminded the rest
of the aldermen that they had unanimously passed a resolution, asking
him and the city solicitor to draw it
up along the lines of that just read,
and to send a copy to Hon. Eberts.
This had been done, and thc least
they could do was to stand by it.
Aid. Hammar said the resolution
was all right cxcej>t that it had no
limit as to time, and he was perfectly willing to see a change made after
amalgamation, but not before. There
was considerable discussion on the
matter, and, upon the suggestion of
the city clerk, it was ordered spread
on the minutes as passed at the
meeting of Tuesday, as the council
did not care to ratify it.
Bylaw No.  8 reeeived its  final
passage.
. *" ■
With the idea of giving additional
strength to the strong resolutions
recently passed by mass meetings of
Grand Forks and Columbia, urging
the Dominion government to throw
aside the injunctions restraining the
and our interview was quite satisfactory. He immediately wired the
following to Collingwood Scrieber,
deputy minister of railways, Ottawa : 'Call a meeting of the railway
committee for Friday, October 24th,

in the matter regarding the V., V. &

and if possible induce him to visit
Grand Forks.
While the minister of railways is
unable to visit us, it will be readily
seen that the sending of the deputation was a wise move, as evidenced
by the following special dispatch to

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 tho 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, Lcadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
' close connections with all trains cast
and west, and afford a choice of fivo
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 ear 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
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 rouln 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 will be
completed in September". The electric light syst in 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 Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling waier,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mountains, forming a charming combination of picturesquesnoss and grandeur. V
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Railway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards iu the center of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connection, with two
transcontinental lines.
The Canadian PacIHe 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.
Apples, plums, peurs, prunes, cherries nnd all the sinal)
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small fruit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
J*
Building material is plentiful iu the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, and brick lime and stone of good
quality can always bo obtained when required,
The mining interests areof the lirst importance to this
country, and will do much to build up Columbia, Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to tho city, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now lurge paying mines.
J*
The Grnuby smelter and  converter—the   most   modern
and perfect plant of the kind lu 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
growtli and prosperity, Columbia will be nn 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.
kte_ 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
Forks.

MINES AND MINING
Ore shipments last week: Granby
mines, Phoenix, 3725 tons; Snow-
shoe, Phoenix, 630 tons; Mother
Lode, Deadwood, 3904 tons; Sunset, Deadwood, 900 tons; B. C.
mine, Summit camp, 780 tons; Emma, Summit camp, 660 tons; total
for past week, 10,599 tons; total for
1902, 347,588.
The Granby smelter last week
treated 4199 tons of ore. Total for
1902, 221,809 tons.
An important strike was made on
the Providence last week, which, it
is said, greatly enhances the value
of that already high-grade and much
thought of property.
Porter Bros, expect to begin the
actual getting out of ore for the
Granby mines sometimes this
month—as soon as it can be handled by the new ore crusher, which
is expected most any day. On
their surface stripping work they are
making good progress, using two
separate steam engines and wire
trams on the Knob Hill sidehill.
A
Th# general annual meeting of
the shareholders of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power
Co., Ltd., is being held at the company's offices in Montreal today.
The meeting is for the purpose of
electing officers for the ensuing year,
and to hear the reports of the managers and other officers of progress
made during the past year—the first
full year that the consolidated com
pany has been operating.
A report from Fairuiew is to the
effect that the property of the New
Fairview Corporation, Ltd., has
been sold in England for 1800,000,
of which $50,000 is to be paid
down, $350,000 in three months,,
and the balance later. This information has not yet been officially
confirmed, but it is regarded as
probable that the deal known to
have been in negotiation for some
time past has now been closed. The
company's chief mining property is
the Stemwinder, which has levels
opened at 100, 200 and 300 feet respectively, and which have developed a big body of quartz ore. At
the 300-foot level this has been
yielding ore stated to have averaged
$10 a ton from a 30-foot shoot. The
deepening of the main shaft is now
in progress, a depth of about 200
feet below tho station on the 300-
foot level having been reached.
Values are gradually improving
with depth, a 12-foot body, of ore
running from $8 to $20, no assay
giving less than $8. The mine is
considered to look better now than
at any previous time. Next week
it is intended to start dropping 20
more stamps, that number having
lately been added to those already
in use. Charles Ostenburg is push
ing on with the work of installing
the cyanide pjant, and it is expected
06 have this ready for operation
within six weeks.—Pheonix Pioneer.
The No. 2 copper furnace at the
Trail smelter was blown in last week
on Rossland ores.
