Hmni* ntlvoMB criticism relative to
lhe Granby Company having lately
appeared   in Ooaet   newspapers  E.
.laeiilis, nf (ireenwood, has sunt the
following communication In reply
thereto :--On l2ih in«t. yotl re-piibllsh-
rd part of hii article Which first appeared in the August numbel' uf the
Canadian Milling Review, Ottawa,
seriously reflecting upon the Granby
Consolidated, Smelting & Power Company, Ltd. As one whose particular
business it is, In my capacity uf special
correspondent in the Boundary district Tor several influential newspapers
nuii mining journals, in keep well informed respecting its mining and
smelting industries, 1 may he permitted
in iniike some imminent thereon, the
more so since on 3rd inst., sonic days
before yon published the roattef under
notice, Mr, S, II. 0. Miner, president
of the Granby Obmpanyi in granting
tny request for a talk with bim respecting it, told ine that the directors
nf the company were treating the
article with tlie contempt they con.
siderid, frnm its nature, deserved. In
taking up ibis mutter I am more concerned aliintl lhe elfect this criticism,
which, 1 think I shall show is not
Warranted by the fact of ihe case,
may have upon the mining industry
of the district the interests of which I
bave for more then four years in my
bumble way striven to promote, than
up.,n lbe Granby company, which is
well able to take its own part whenever ils liiainigenielil shall think it
necessary to do so. The. Granby company's milling and smelting Industries
being by far the largest in the district,
I it seems lo mo inadvisable thai .judg
ment shall be permitted in gn against
I it, nnd through it against tbe dislrict,
by default.
Perhaps the simplest nay fur tne to
! endeavor to show lite Granhy company
I in what I think tn lie a fairer light will
j be io take seriatim ihesiatements—or,
rather,   niisstnirinanls,   as   most   of
llhi'lii appear tn me—In which I take
exception and make some comment on
l hem successively as I gn. I will premise, though,   by   stating Unit Mr.
I Miner assured me most, positively that
every statement reflecting on the
Granhy conipany in the article under
notice ib "absolutely false."
I have selected the following nllega
linn, iipnn whicli I comment asunder:—
(J) "Coiisid.ritl.li. interest i* aroused
in British Columbia by the announce*
menttbiit the Granby smeltet people
contemplate an Increase in tbeir capi*
til raising it frnui fifteen million tn
twenty million dollars and those who
are best able to judge consider the
proposal a farcical one in view nf the
past history nf the oompany." As to
lhe "considerable interest." I have nnly
to remark I had not heard any mention at all made nf the mul ter In the
Boundary dislrict prior to the publication of the Review's criticism, nor
had I seen any reference made to it in
any of the l'l'iivlneiiil newspapers thai
came under my notice, Mr, Miner's
reply to my enquiry as to the truth or
untruth of the statement alleging a
a proposed Increase nf capital was i
"We never even t bought of raising I lie
capital of the company above ils present amount of $15,()00,lJ(K>. Why should
we when we have one fourth of the
capital stock Intact in the treasury
available for lbe advancement of the
company's interests should occasion
arise?"
(2) "It is au undoubted fact that the
present capitalization of $16,1(10,000 is
ennrmtiiislv in excess of the value of
the pioperty." In this connection I
remark that Ihe shareholders of  the
four companies lhat combined do not the best position to judge" state most
seem lo have thought so since Ihey I plainly that operations are returning
ratified lhe scheme of consolidation, I profits, Ihus directly contradicting the
I am informed that they received, pn
rain, lliree fourths of tbe new slock
and that none was offered for sale to
the public,
(11) "It is a well known fact that tlie
total expenditure in cash hoih for
purchase and development nf all 111
suggestion'thaithey "are lieing carried on at a positive loss,"
(fl) "It Is * * * culpable oil the
part nf the directors of the Granby
company In wilhold Important Ihfnr*
mat ion without Which it is impossible
to estimate  tlie   value  of the stock
properties in Ihedranliysmcltergrniip, j they are apparently bent on increas-
including the smelter itself, does tint j ing anil whiili in any ease they   me
exceed one million dollars and when in
the early months nf this year the representatives of this company, ,Mr. .1, P,
Graves and Mr. A. L White, weie in
offering the public as a attractive investment." Mr. Miner's statements to
me applicable to these strict ores may
he summed up thus I—(a) Shareholders
New York negotiating for the sale of | have heen given  all the information
tlie property, or at any rate exchanging our purlers with the Amalgamated
Copper Company having that niner!
in view, tlie lalterconlil no! he Induced
in give as much as two million dollais
for the property." To this I reply thai
I have definite assurance that tlie cash
expended to date on the company's
properties is about $1,600,000, This
does not represent their value, though,
for a consideralile proportion of the
original consideration for the mineral
claims was in stock, whilst a large and
valuable tract, of land, situate near
Grand Forks, was received as a smelter
bonus or subsidy without any cash
therefore, further, that the (own nf
Phoenix is partly on the company's
mineral claims, adding very largely lo
their surface value. As to the alleged
attempts to sell, Mr. Miner assured ine
that the directors had not tried to sell
the property ! on the contrary tbey
bad declined offers, which they had
fully satisfied themselves were bona
fide and hacked by the necessary cap!
till, for the purchase of the property at
much higher figures than the $2,000,*
000 inentintied.
(4) "No authoritative rtatement bus
yet been given as to the average
value per ton nf me treated although
the smelter has been in operation
since last year. Repealed applications
have been made to tbe coinpaiiy by
shareholders for this information bin
it has been refused fol motives of
policy." Mr. Miner staled to tne lhat
no shareholder had been refused information that, he was reasonably entitled to. Statements of receipts and
expenditures had been submitted to
general meetings of shareholdeiswheri
ever required by Iheprnvisionsgoverning thu conduct nl the financial affairs
uf the several companies now consolidated. When presiding over general
in.', tings he bad on several occasions
stated to shareholders present that
the ore was yielding a profit, but just
what that profit was the directors
were not yet prepared to make public
In adopting this attitude at the present stage of Iheir undertaking the
directors considered Ibey were conserving the best interests of the company
and were only doing the same as other
manufacturing concerns which do not
divulge details of the cost of production,
(5) "if, nf is correctly believed hy
these in the best, position to judge, the
average gross value of the ure treated
dues not exceed Hve dollars, it is
doubtful if operation's are not being
carried on at a positive loss." Perhaps
lhe most effective reply to this is contained in the following excerpt from a
circular, daied August 12, sent to
shareholders with their stock In (he
tbey are entitled to, (u) The directu
have not even thought of Increasing
the stock, (c) They are Hot ottering
anv stock to the public.
I desire to add that, not only in ilie
Boundary dislrict, hut When at Boss*
land and Nelsnn lately, lhe simple
mention that the Canadian Alining
Review bad attacked Ilie Granhy com*
puny promptly elicited replies, remarkable in their unanimity, in effect that
that journal is notorious fnr Its general
hostility towards llrilisli Columbia
mining enterprises.
Al the iUk uf making an unreason*
able demand un your space I ask your
permission to here briefly summarize
the history and work uf the Granhy
Consolidated Mining, Smelting k
Power Company, Ltd., which lias a
capital of $16,000,000 ill 1,600,000 $10
shares, Tlie consolidation embraced
four incorporated companies, viz., tlie
Old Ironsides Mining Company, Ltd.,
capital $1,000,1X10 ; the Knob Ilill Gold
Mining ('nnipany. Ltd., capital $1,600,-
iKKijthi Granby Consolidated Mining
and Smelling Company, Ltd., capital
$900,000, and thu Grey Kagle Gold Mining Company, Ltd., capital $1,600,000.
I'he mineral claims owned liy these
companies are situate i.i Greenwood
camp and all adjoin. They are lhe
Old Ironsides Knob Hill, Victoria,
Fourth uf July, Phoenix, Aetna, Grey
Kagle, Banner, Tip Tup and Triangle,
these constituting, so far as known,
the biggest copper mining proposition
in tlie Boundary and probably in the
ornvince. Fut Some time prior lu the
consolidation they were jointly worked
under the one general management.
The Old Ironsides ar.d Knoh Ilill coin*
panics did a large amount nf develop*
ment in their respective mines, nnd
have been at work with scarcely any
intermission fur about five years, The
first Granby company whicli was nf
more recent organization, worked lho
Victoria and built and operated the
smelter nt Grand Forks, these reduction works being thoroughly modern
and most effective antl successful in
(heir results. Prellmii ni"s having
been arranged during the latter half of
1900, the consolidation Was consummated curly in the current year, since
then there lias been a gradual enlarge*
ment of operations.

THE  GREENWOOD   ASSIZES.
Court Held in Oreenwood Last Week
by Mr. Justice Irving.
The first Assize and Supreme courts
held in the Boundary district were
opened at Greenwood by His Lordship Mr. Justice Irving mr Tuesday,
22nd inst. Court was held ill the Mil
sonic Hall, which had been suitably
prepared for the proper transaction of
the business, its several ante rooms
proving convenient for the use of
juries, witnesses and counsel. The arrangements were made by Registrar
W. 0. McMynn and Deputy Sheriff F.
M, Elklns, Sheriff Vale arrived from
Vernon on the afternoon "l 21.-.I. The
The Deputy Attorney General W. A.
Maclean,prosecuted. HisEonorJudge
Leatny was invited to take a seat ou
the bench, whicli lie did.
After the Brand Jury hud answered
to their names Mr 11. ('. Shaw, on behalf of the Greenwood Law Association and the City of Greenwood, addressed a few words of welcome to His
Lordship, who replied, thanking the
bar for their welcome, intimating his
impression thai the Boundary is a
suilable locality in which lo huld
Assize and Supreme Court sittings
and expressing ids astonishment at
the big mineral showings he had seen
in visiting some of the mines iu the
neighborhood. He iluniuht that comparatively few people outside the district had any conception of (he enormous mineral resources tho district
appeared to possess.
His Lordship briefly addressed the
Grand Jury, who retired and later
brought in true bills against Sandy
Glencross and Slim llogan, indicted
for conspiracy (with L. C. Barnes, who
had pleaded guilty las'. Mi, in a court
of speedy trials) to waylay and rob one
Frank MeGoogan, and tiguir^t Joseph
Murphy charged with maiming a cow
the property of Ceo. W, Gillespie, at
Sidley near Camp M Kinney,
In the first case the principal evidence against, the prisoners, who hud
been nearly fiv. months in custody
awaiting trial, wus that of Barnes,
who turned King's evidence, but as
ihis was not corroborated the jury
deemed the evidence in-tifiicieut
to convict, gave its prisoners the benefit of the doubt an;l discharged. In
Murphy's case the jury did not deliberate many minutes, hut quickly returned n verdict of not guilty. Tliis
completed the Assize Court proceedings and the jurors were discharged,
Thc following cases were disposed
of:
William Diamond vs. John William
Nelson.—Plaintiff's claim isagainst the
defendant for a declaration Unit the
plaintiff is the owner and entitled to
the possession of the Diamond Fractional mineral olalm, situate in thu
Kettle River Mining Division, Yale
District, and that in so far us the San
Juan Fractional mineral claim, situate in nr. K I'le Rivel' Mining Division aforesaid, interferes witb or over-
hips the said Diamond Fractional
mineral claim, the same may be declared to tie invalid and void. And for
damages for trespass. Claim allowed
with costs. Counter claim notallowed,
Costs against Nelson,
James Fisher vs. CharlesL. Hoffman
and the Deadwood Gold-Copper Mill-
ing compuny:—The plaintiff's claim is
for delivery Jo 1 lie plaintiff by the do-
fend.iius of 125,01)0 fully paid up
and non-assessable shares in the defendant company, being the purchase
price of an undivided one quarter
interest in the St.. Lawrence mineral
claim, situate in Deadwood camp, in
tlie Kettle River Mining Division of
Yale District, sold by the plaintiff to
lho defendants. And for damages for
non-delivery of said shares.
Or in the alternative, for the rescission of said contract of sale and for a
decree of tliis Court, that the defendants transfer to the plaintiff the said
undivided one quarter interest in the
said mineral claim, and for damages,
Or, for $15,000 as the, value of said
shares, and for an injunction, and u
lis pendens, and costs of this action,
and such other relief as to the court
seems meet.   Settled out of court,
Joseph Murphy, of Sidley, near
Camp McKinney, was charged tbat on
or about Septemher 10th, 1000, he did
wilfully damage one cow, the property
of George W. Gillespie, also of Sidley,
liy maiming or wounding said cow.
The charge against. L, 0. Barnes,
Sandy Glencross and Slim Hogan, who
had a preliminary hearing at Greenwood on May 28 before P, M. Hallett,
was as follows:
"Louis Comfort Bailies, Sandy
Glencross nnd Slim Hogan did on lhe
ll.h day of May last, unlawfully conspire, combine, confederate and agree
together to commit a certain indictable
offense, to wit, the crime of robbery,
by then and Ihere conspiring, confederating and agreeing togsther to unlawfully and by means of violence to
be used by them to and against the
person of one Frank MGoogan, lo
overcome resistance, and then and
there to unlawfully and violently steal
from the person of the said Frank iMc-
Googan, money," etc, etc.
Barnes pleaded guilty anil turned
King's evidence. His confession, made
before Mr, Jas. Kerr, J. P„ is ns follows :—
I, Louis Comfort Barnes, wish to
make a statement freely and without
inducement to do so, 1 was playing
black jack in the Butte hotel, at Phpe
nix, about four weeks ago last Saturday, I went broke then, I had some
money to start with. Sandy Glencross
came to trie and said he wished to speak
l.o uie. He said this man Frank Mc-
Googm is $1,500 to $1,800 strong and
wo have been in hard circumstances
all wlnler, it is just as easy as fulling
otf a log. All we have to do is to stick
him up and take the money away from
him. He said, 1 dure not go as 1 am
a cripple and wnuld be detected, Ynu
and Slim Hogan go down the road between I'hoenix and Greenwood. He
said thut MeGoogan had a prostitute
and came up there every Saturday
night from Greenwood and you can
hold him up on the road coming np to
Phoenix. I told him that I had no gtm
and he said that 1 did not need any ;
that he would give his gun to Slim
Hogan and he knew how to hold liim
up. Sandy Glencross gave me im predion that Slim Hogan was annul hand at
the business of holding up and I was in
hard circumstances and was foolish
enough to then lake up the propo
sition. The gun was a ii-OoWk. He
showed it to ine that night. 1 think
you have the gu . here now. He bad
il on him when he was arrested here.
(Gun produced.) I think that is the
same gun, if looks like it; the ramrod
of It was hroken. (The gun produced
and referred to is a Coil's No, H5H87,
46'Oallhre.) 1 urn pretty sure that
that is the gun. We both went dnwn
the road on Saturday night four weeks
ago with the intention of holding up
MeGoogan and when we heard him
coming wa backed out, as it was a
moonlight night. This fellow Sidley
wlio runs the roulette wheel at Me-
Ouire hotel (Brooklyn hnlel), Phoenix,
passed riding a horse down to Greenwood and MeGoogan, I understood,
was to ride-the same horseback, which
1 think he did. We g,,i off the road
when MeGoogan passed us when he
was coming up. He passed us between
the 'milk ranch and Phoenix*. After
Huiley passed us the candy man also
passed us, and he was going towards
Greenwood.   I think if wns ahoul half
RAILWAY   NEWS
It is only a question ofa short time
until that portion of the Coast-Kootenay Railway from Curlew to Midway
will be constructed. This line would
be now being built, but for the scarcity
of laborers. When this road is built,
most of the spur lines to the different
mining camps will start from here,
making this the railway centre of this
district. With the advent of more railways into Midway the prices of real
estate will advance, and the choice lots
purchased and taken off the market.
Show your good judgment by buying
now. Midway property will make you
rich. It is not a speculation, it is an
investment.

THE GRANBY COMPANV.

The smelter is nt present running
two blast furnaces, these together
treating nearly 070 tons of ore a day.
Two more furnaces are overdue lo arrive at the works anil these should be
io operation before the etui of this
year. This addition will increase treatment facilities to about 1,H00 tons a
day. It bus been decided tu increase
tbe number of furnaces to six early in
the new year so as to enlarge the capacity of tlie works to about 2,000 tons
of ore daily. Two copper converters
will also bo installed here shortly nnd
these with other betterments also being
made will bring the equipment up to
about the most complete and imp,,riant copper producing plant in Canada,
Adverse criticism regarding tbe big
capitalization of the Granby Conipnny
may or may not he warranted, but
surely the proper time for this was
when last year an authoritative public
announcement wns made of mi intention to increase to .IHoitJUttOUO and not
when rumor, usually  most carefully
ignored by reliable journals, concocts
n story entirely at variance with facts.

In chambers on Thursday T. Mayne
Duly applied lo Mr, .lustlce Irving on
behalf of the Le Rol .Mining company
for an injunction restraining the olli-
cers nml all of lhe members of the
Rossland miners' and carpenters' unions from watching nuii besetting all
the stations nml tracks of the Canadian Pacific nnd Kr-il Mountain mil
ways in the province, also on the
plaintiff's premises and approaches
thereto. The injunction wns modified
to the terms of similar injunctions
gtanted by EoRlish judges, nnd restrains all except four of lbe defendants
and is grunted I ill ibe ttinl of the ens,.,
which uill possibly take place at Rossland early in December, The four ex
repted nre Angus McDonald, E, 0,
Rose, T. W.Midi,, and \V. O'Brien,
Defendant's counsel wns S. .S. Taylor
uf Nelson, (i Is claimed the effect uf
the Injunction will prevent members
of the union from piuketing or Intimidating non-union men.
School Inspector Wilson, of Nelson,
met with an accident a few days ngn
which resulted in his left arm being
fractured between the elbow nnd
shoulder. He wns returning fiom
Keremeos to Fairview and the driver
when passing another vehicle collided
with it, throwing Mr. Wilson out of
tbe buggy and injuring him as stated.
Dr. Schon, of Greenwood, fortunately
happened to be in the district with a
life assurance agent, so his services
were secured to give the necessary
surgical attention to Mr. Wilson, who
a lew days later was able to return to
His home in Nelson,
Messrs. F. W. Hayes and Wayne
Oboate, M. E., of Detroit, Michigan,
have lately been closely examining
the Ruby, near Bouudary Falls, whicli
is under bond to Mr. Hayes and associates, Development work done undor the direction of Jus. Hamilton has
disclosed the presence of some very
fine gold-copper ore, so that it appears
probable the bond will be taken up,
A large and beautiful specimen of ore
was taken to Greenwood last week by
Mr. Hayes,
Win. Johns, brother of H. Johns,
manager of the Sunset mine, has
bought (J, Nelson's interest in the Nor-
den Hotel, Oreen wood, tho proprietors
of which are now Sater k Johns instead of Nelson A Sater, as heretofore.
