Copper Street,  Discusses the Location of His  Bis Smelter-  Railway Competition. ,  " We intend beginning- work immediately," said Jay P. Graves, when  seen by a Timks representative regarding the smelting enterprise of the  Granby Mining & Smelting Company.  " Of course it will be impossible to  have our works in running order until  a railway reaches the district, but  there is a large amount of preliminary  work and this will be undertaken as  soon as we have settled upon a site for  a smelter."  Mr. Graves has just returned, after  spending the winter in�� Montreal and  other eastern cities. During his absence he added the Granby Mining &  Smelting Company to his list of successful flotations. This company intends erecting a large smelter to treat  the ores of the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides' and the other properties represented by Mr. Graves. The object of  Mr. Graves' present visit is to select a  site for a smelter and begin work.  - ���' " Where are you going to build your  smelter?" he was asked.  " We haven't settled upon that yet,"  he replied. " Personally I think Boundary creek, the most advantageous  point, but there are serious objections,  to the location of a smelter on Boundary, creek. I see Greenwood is growing very rapidly. It will continue to  grow until it is a very large city. Your  only source for water is Boundary  creek. When you get a large population here, using Boundary creek \vat~-,  I am afraid there would be little left  for reduction works such as we contemplate erecting. Then again, the Midway Townsite Company have a record  for several hundred inches of water  from Boundary creek, and if we go  above their source of supply we will  get into trouble."  " But if you go to Grand Prairie you  will be in greater trouble with the  farmers there."  "Well, corporations are always in  trouble," said Mr. Graves. " We expect trouble wherever we go. I am  ready to listen to arguments in favor  of any-location and would be very glad  indeed if we could see our way clear to  erect our smelter on Boundary creek,  as it has the natural geographical  posision."  " Are you going to treat the ores of  mine's outside of those held by yourself ?" was asked.  " We are building the smelter," said  Mr. Graves, " to treat our own ores. If  we are in a position to treat the ores of  other mines, and they are offered to us,  we will do so."  "In other words, if you can compete  with the C.P.R. smelters ?"  " Well, yes ; we would have to quote  as low a rate as the C.P.R."  " If you had no mines'in the district,  would you invest your money in a custom smelter to compete with the C.  P. R. ?"  " With only one railway, having absolute control over transportation and  fuel, I would not think of entering into  competition against the C.P.R. in the  smelting- industry. One is placed at  too great a disadvantage."

"Most decidedly. The Boundary  Creek district requires two railways."  Mr. Graves went up to the Old Ironsides on Wednesday. He will spend  several days in the district before returning to Spokane.  IN   FAVOR   OF   COBBIN'S   ROAD.  Rossland Liberals Endorse the Charter���Mid-  ��� r        way Taking Action.  A largely attended meeting of the  Rossland Liberal association was held  Monday evening when the following  resolution was unanimously passed :  "Whereas railway competition is  absolutely essential to the speedy development of the Boundary Creek  country of West Kootenay district;  and whereas public sentiment in the  district is unanimously in favor of  railway competition; and whereas  an application is being made to the  Dominion parliament by D. C. Corbin  for a charter for the construction of a  railway,'traversing a portion of the  Boundary Creek country, which will  be called the Kettle River Valley railway ';' aiid whereas the granting of  such a charter and'the construction of  said railway would be of the utmost  benefit to the development of Southern  British Columbia, and would insure  the establishment of the smelting and  mining industry under the most favorable conditions; and whereas, under  the terms of the charter applied for,  permission to construct said railway  is only asked for, and no money subsidy or land grant or other bonus is  asked for; therefore, Resolved, that in  the opinion of the Liberal association  of Rossland in open meeting assembled, it is not only desirable but  . absolutely essential to the development  and. up-building of the country that  this railway should be constructed,  subject to the government control of  rates, and that the people are fairly  and justly entitled to obtain the railway competition sought for, and that  in order to render the accomplishment  of this possible the Dominion parliament should grant the charter applied  for by the said D. C. Corbin, thereby  rendering an act of justice to the people  of Southern British Columbia. And  that a copy of this resolution be sent  to the members of the Dominion government and to every member of the  house of commons who represent constituencies in this province.  A meeting was held at Midway  Thursday evening when a committee  was appointed for the purpose of drafting a resolution favorable to the Corbin charter. After the resolutions are  prepared, they will be circulated for  the endorsement of the residents of  Midway.      NEWS   FROM   OTTAWA.  Interesting Items In  Which   Boundary. Creek  Is Interested-  Word has been received from Ottawa that Mr. Bostock's constituency  is to be subdivided. A member will be  given to the Kootenays and Southern  Yale, and another to the remaining  portion of what is now known as the  Yale-Cariboo district. In the event of  the district being so divided, it is  probable that Mr. Bostock will run for  the northern .district, although he has  made such a good record that he could  easily be elected iu the Kootenays.  Eastern people generally are taking  a greater interest in the Corbin charter.  From all appeal auces the bill will pass  the railway committee and the house  of commons, but may be defeated in  in the senate.  Owing to family quarrels the  Liberals are likely to lose Winnipeg.  ���'Bob " Richardson, managing editor  of the Tribune, does not love Sifton,  and Sifton loses no opportunity of  showing his dislike for Richardson.  The Siftonites are anxious to run  Isaac Campbell, O. C, while ordinary  Liberals want J. If. Ashdowne. The  return of a Conservative will probably  convince the Winnipeg Liberals that  it is better policy to light the enemy  than to li^rht each other.  E. A. Bielenberg has closed with  Ruftis H. Pope. M. P.. for the s:de of  the. Little Ruth and Xn. ') claims.  These properties adjoin the Buckhorn  on the south and have good showings  of ore. The ore chutes from the linok-  horn run into the No. 'J. It is understood that the properties will be taken  over by the lluokhorn company, recently organized 1 y Mr. Pope and his  associates. The consideration has not  been made public.  -_^w��luii > .aRrcfrcK.^  >UK'CS��Mtt��STW��..ir  '���������III    I       --**����''��"~��� ��� t-rjuiranwtttaaaa  THE   BOUNDARY   CREEK   TIMES,  g     H.

The reg-ular meeting- of the Commercial association, which is to be held  next Wednesday evening-, should be  laryely attended. The Corbin charter  will come up for discussion. Another  matter which should have the serious  attention of the association is the location of the of the Granby Mining- and  Smelting- company's smelter. Mr. Jay  P. Graves, the managing- director of  the company, has come to the district  with an open mind on this question,  and is prepared to 'build the smelter at  the most advantageous point. He is  anxious to secure all possible information on the subject. We do not think  it would be a difficult matter to furnish Mr. Graves with strong- arguments in favor of Boundary creek in  the vicinity ot Boundary Falls, as an  excellent site. Mr. Graves has one or  two objections to this site. He believes that Greenwood is going to be a  very large city ; its only source  for water supply is Boundary  creek. With a large population at  Greenwood using- Boundary creek  water, he fears that there will not be  sufficient left for large reduction  works. This and one or two other  minor objections could be discussed  with    Mr.   Grayes.      The   association  ought to interest themselves in this  important matter, and see ,if it is not  possible to meet Mr.- Graves' objections and offer such inducements as  will lead his company to establish their  smelter at'a point tributary to Greenwood.  THE WORK OF A FAKIR.  Wnir.K the application for the Kettle  River Valley Railway charter was before the railway committee of the house  of commons last season, the eastern  newspapers were supplied with despatches from eveo'city in British Columbia protesting- ag-ainst the granting, of the charter. The despatches  were cleverly concocted and had a;  genuine appearance. They were prepared by a newspaper man then living-  at Trail and sent free by the Canadian  Pacific Railway company to the different eastern -'papers. The C. P. R.  is beg-inning- early this year. It has  secured the services; of a versatile Victoria newspaper man, who appears to  to be a prince among- fakirs, as the following despatch, prepared in Victoria  but dated at Spokane, will show :  Spokane, Wash., March '30.���It is  reported here that PresidentHill of the  Great Northern Railway company intends to make this city a smelting  center and furnish all transportation  facilities required if the citizens will  erect the smelter. The idea is to prevent THE SMKLTEK INDUSTRY GETTING  ON A SOWD BASIS IN SOUTHEKN BRITISH  Columbia, and  incidentally to cut the  C. P. R. out of this traffic.  The purport of this despatch is apparent to every one familiar with the  prejudice -which exists in the east  ag-ainst having- Canadian ores treated  on the American side. Those who  know Jim Hill know that he is anything- but a fool and consequently  would never think of erecting a smelter sin Spokane to treat Boundary  Creek ores. If Mr. Hill is anxious to  put money in smelters he will smelt  Boundary Creek ores at home. ,'.-  The attention of the Times has been <  called to  the   fact   that   Government  street from the city- limits  to  the  end  of the fill is in   an  almost  impassable  condition for the man)'  teams hauling-  lumber to the  city.    The  street is full  of holes  into which   the wheels run  making- the hauling- of heavy loads to  the city an   impossibility.    As there is  a great scarcity of lumber in the city,  an effort should be made to putothis'  street   in   better   condition.     A   few  loads from  the Government street cut  placed in  the  worst holes would materially assist.  W. H. Dorman, inspector of post-  offices, spent Wednesday in the city.  He corroborated the statements published in the Rossland Miner and appearing- elsewhere, relative to the delays in the mail service. Mr. Dorman  is taking- the matter up with the  American authorities, and hopes to  have a better service in a short time.  After reading: the editorial notes in  the Grand Forks miner of last week,  we are quite willing- to accept the statement that there has been no change of  editors.

E.   MALLETTE   -   -   -   AT SAWMILL.   OFFICE.  DELAYS   IN   MAILS.  The Reason Is Given by Postoffice Inspector  Dorman.  Postoffice Inspector W. H. Dorman  was in Rossland a few clays ago. He  is endeavoring- to arrange a more expeditious mail service between Kootenay  and Boundary Creek. Mr. Dorman  stated to the Rossland Miner ttiat the  principal cause for delay was that the  postal clerk on the Spokane Falls &  Northern has about three times as  much work as he can possibly attend  to; ' A large number of letters addressed to points in the Boundary  Creek country come from Spokane and  many more from Toronto and points in  Eastern. Canada. He, has six hours  before he gets to Marcus in /which to '  sort letters and papers. It is often the  case-that he is unable to sort all that  he receives. In this event he hands  over the unsorted mail to the postoffi-  ces in this city and in Nelson. The  other day Postmaster Waclds received  800 letters from this clerk addressed to  the Boundary Creek country, which he  had to sort.  A   BIG   FIGHT.  ,   The Toronto World,  discussing  the  rate war, says :'..  " The war is'already on. 7 The Great  Northern has cut its rates  to the coast  and the ,C. P. R. will be  obliged to follow   suit..  Rate; cutting promises   to  become general within  a  short time.  This certainly will  happen  unless Mr.  Hill can  be  called off.    The  exciting  cause of last year's war was  alleged  secret   rate-cutting   by  the   Northern  Pacific and Great Northern  railways.  The trouble this year is of  quite a different   nature.   British   Columbia   is  the storm-center.   The Great Northern  lias a spur from Spokane, running into  the rich mineral  district .of  Southern  British   Columbia.     The   outlook   for  business is so" promising that Mr. Hill  is seeking to extend his lines in several  directions throughout British Columbia  In the first place, he wants a charter  from the Dominion government for his  so-called Kettle River railway.    The  ':. C. P. R.   is  opposing  his   application.  Sir.William was the means  of defeating the project during the  last session  of parliament.    He is preparing to kill  the project again when  it comes  up,  as it will come up during, the  present  session.'   Mr. Hill: does  not  intend  to  waste all his powder  at Ottawa, nor is  he going to wait  till Sir  William has  outwitted him   before he   begins the  fight.    The cut.rate announced by the  Great-Northern a week ago  is the first  shot that has been  fired  over the Kettle River project   this   season.     The  battle promises to be,a fierce one.    Jim  Hill   has  put  on   his   war   paint  and  feathers.   He is preparing- for  a war  to the knife.    His plan  of campaign is  many-sided.    It   is   not   limited   to  a  mere cut in rates. Mr. Hill has started  an agitation to  discredit  the  C. P. R.  in the United States.    He   has secured  the aid of  several   influential journals  in the west   to   excite   the American  public against the C.  P. R.    On one of  the St. Paul papers he  has appointed  an editor who is specially  qualified to  carry on the  fight against  the  Canadian  corporation.    There  is  no doubt  that  Mr. Hill   has  it' in   his  power to  greatly  iujui-e the C. P. R. as far as  its United States business is concerned.  When   the   Americans   learn    of   Sir  William Van Home's attempts to keep  the Great Northern out of Canada they  will not be disposed to treat the C. P.  R.    with   much   consideration.    President   Hill   has   excellent   material  to  work on in exciting  antipathy against  the C. P. R. in United States territory.  We are not astonished to  see  that Sir  William Van Home he's  taken   fright  and has sent an emissary  to  St. Paul  to sue for peace. From what we know  of President Hill, we believe that the  withdrawal of the C. P. R. opposition  to the Kettle River railway will be a  condition precedent to any settlement  of the dispute.  THE   EIGHT-HOUR   LAW  Meets With Considerable Opposition in Koote-  ��� >,nav District.  Kootenay is excited over the enforcement of the eight-hour law recently enacted by the provincial legislature. .The chief objection comes  from the mine owners who do not wish  to pay the same wages for eight hours  as was paid for a longer day heretofore. The following despatch from  Nelson shows that there is considerable opposition to the eight-hour law in  that city :  " There continues to be a great deal  of interest taken in the results of the  recent legislation limitin^/the hours of  work underground to eight .hours, and  the general closing down of the mines  seems more and more probable. All  the more important mining companies  which are operating here have decided  to close down if the trouble ends in an  increased cost of the work.  " The business men are also taking  the matter up, and to-dajr the principal  merchants and mine operators met,  and decided to draw up two petitions  praying the government not to enforce  the law until next 'session". Two dis-  ' tinct petitions will be circulated. One  by the mining men and one by the  business men. Mayor Neelands has  been appoin ted delegate of the business men to take the petition to Victoria and interview the minister of  mines on the subject, and Captain  Duncan, manager of the Duncan  mines, and J. J. Campbell, manager of  the Hall Mines company, have been  appointed the representatives of the  mining men w.ith the same object. It  .is generally agreed that the next week  or' two will decide the prosperity or  otherwise of the next two or three"  years in the history of the mining districts of British Columbia."  Divine service will be held in Rendell's hall on Sunday morning at 11  o'clock. A cordial invitation is extended to all.  MODEL    CAFE.  "   W. R. Courts, Prop.
