EBMMH  GREEN^VOOD  ml     IWII n  MIDWAY  Sis  WEDDED NEXT WEEK.  British Columbia Copper Company Announces Important  Extensions to Smelter Plant.  Three New Furnaces, the Largest in Canada���Work to be  Done Immediately.  Dr. S. S. Oppenheimer left yesterday for Spokane. On the 14th inst. he  will be married at the Hotel Spokane  to Miss Dorothea Fisher. The bri-e  is well known in this city- She is a  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.Fisher,,  formerly of Greenwood, but now residing at Colfax, Wash. Miss Fisher  and her sister, Mrs- Julius F. Ehrlich,  came here with) their parents in the  eariy days and both grew to womanhood in the city. Miss Fisher was  popular in social arid musical circles  and hercmany Greenwood friends will  welcome her back. After the marriage  ceremony, which will be witnessed by  immediate friends,  a  banquet will be  held iu the Silver Grill" The-honey^  moon -will-be spent in thecoast cities.  Dr. Oppenheimer is one of the old-  timers in Greenwood. He came here  shortly after graduating at McGill,  and has always enjoyed a large and  lucrative practice.  .  The happy couple will "return to  Greenwood about the end of the month  and will begin houseueeping in the  Fisher residence, which is being fitted  ;i p for them.  The Times joins their many Greenwood friends in anticipating the happy  event by extending congratulations.  During Dr. Oppettheimer's absence  his practice will be looked after by  Dr. Spankie.

Most of the mountain ranges oj Central New Mexico are high tilted blocks,  one side being a long slope and the  other a. steep face, originally a fault  scarp. In the steep face a considerable  portion of this basal part is often  found to be made up of quartzites, mi-  cacious and hornblende schists, gneises  ami granites. The foliation of these  highly metamorphosed rocks is usually  nearly vertical.  Frederic Keffer, engineer of  the British Columbia Copper company, has made an announcement  that is of the utmost importance  to Greenwood. The compare's  board of directors 'has decided to  enlarge its smelting plant at  Greenwood by the installation of  three additional blast furnaces,  each with a smelting capacity of  between five and six hundred tons  a'day, or a total additional smelting capacity of about 1,600 tous  daily. This enlargement, which  will be carried out immediately,  will set at rest all rumors regarding the removal of the.plant, will  result in the employment of a  large number of men both at the  smelter aud the company's mines,  and will, with the extension of  the Dominiou Copper company's  reduction works, make Greenwood the largest smelting center  in the Dominion.  . Contracts . for . the . three furnaces have been let to the Power  and Mining Machinery company.  These furnaces have a 4S x 240-  inch hearth area and, as has been  stated, have a capacity of from  500 to 600 tons each per day.  They will be the largest in  Canada, Charging will be done  from side dumping cars which  will be hauled by trolley locomotives. The molten slag will be  hauled away from the furnaces  by electric locomotives in. cars of  25 tons capacity each. The cars  are to be made by the M. H.  Treadwell company, and each is  provided with an electric motor  .for-tilting...the__c.ar._i -,._.._    The ore bins will be practically  rebuilt and made ten feet higher  to increase their capacity, and  all the railway spurs connecting  with these bins will also be elevated to correspond.  Three large new blowers for  the furnaces will be furnished by  the Roots company. These will  be driven by three 300-horsepower  motors. In addition to these  motors a 100-kw. motor generator  will be installed, together with  several smaller motors.  The ore will be hauled from  the bins to the furnaces and the  slag from the furnaces to the  waste dump by five trolley locomotives. These will be also installed at the smelter a completely equipped machine shop  with all necessary tools.  At, the Mother Lode mine it  has been" decided to substitute  electrical power for the steam  driving the air compressor. For  this purpose a 500-horsepower  motor has'been contracted for and  also three 50 kw, stepdown transformers will be located at the  mine. The ore crushers^ will be  driven by electric motors now in  service at the smelter, and they  will be replaced there by larger  machines. The electrical' apparatus will be furnished by the  Westinghouse Co., and the new  pumping plant conies from the  Canadian Foundry company.*  There will also be. installed*^  new track scales of greatc-r capacity than those already in use.  The new furnace building will  be constructed of steel. It is the  intention of the company to push  forward the  construction  of  the  work as rapidl}**  as  the weather  will permit.  FATALLY INJURED.  George Verrisich Meets Horrible Death  at Smelter.  A1 horrible accident occurred at the  B. C. Coppe." company's smelter at  4:10 Monday morning. Geo. Verrisich  was fatally injured and Geo. Wilbur  was bruised and burned about the  hands but not seriously injured.  The accident occurred in   connection  with the dumping of  the  molten  slag  by means  of   an   electric  locomotive, i  Wilbur   was driving  the   locomotive, i  and Verresich was  attending the slag!  car.

" It may be supposed ihat companies  which do not pay commissions can in.  sure cheaper; this is not so. What it  costs to secure a policy of SI,000 at the  age of 35 on the whole life with profits  plan, may be gathered from the follow  ing figures:  ..$2  27 5o?-> rY-PUDOT  28soli bAi-Ulibl  There Is Danger at Present That Unwise Restrictions Would Be  Unacted.  " Insurance is a business, and yet it  is also philanthropy reduced to a business basis." This is the opinion of a  prominent insurance official of this  city, says the Montreal Star..  When asked what was said as to an  investigation into the condition of the  Canadian life insurance companies,  this official stated it was the general  impression that such an investigation  would take place, but that just now it  was a question whether the present  was a suitable time for it.  If it were a year previous or a year  hence it would be welcomed, for he believed the Canadian companies would  come out with flying colors. He did  not believe that the evils which had  had been revealed ^n New York had  their counterpart at all in Canada  Just now, however, owing to the scandals in conn Lotion with the New York  companies he thought the public  would be prejudiced aud not in a position to give a cool and deliberate judgment such as might be expected under  ordinary circumstances.  As a result of this prejudice he believed that an investigation at this  time w>uld be injurious to the business, not because of anything-it. would  reveal, but because of the blue spectacles which the public are at present  wearing. Any thing* that could be distorted into further inflaming the public mind would probably result in the  passing of legislation, especially as  regards the insurance companies'  powers of investment, which would be  extremely injurious to the companies  and also to their policy holders.  However, if au investigation should  be brought on here it should be in au  endeavor to get the actual facts and  the truth in a calm and consistent  manner and not endeavor tp make out  every man a crook or a fool.  "We have been asked: Why not  give the people cheaper insurance?  We are told that the government may  establish an insurancs bureau in connection with tluvpostoffice department.  Let the government establish this  bureau; we would welcome it for the  reason that they could not, I say0it  frank[y, supply insurance, today as  cheaply as the companies are already  doing.  '' Tlietfagain">vFafe'toVd^o'uF^Spen"-"1  ses are out of all proportion. You can  take it as certain that ever)* life insurance manager deplores the fact that  insurance expenses are at all heavy,  and I would like to ask who is responsible for this. It is the public. I have  now been connected with insurance for  over twenty-eight years and in all that  time remember but four persons who  came into the ofiice to insure their  lives without being canvassed; two of  ti?em were a saloon keeper and his  wife, whom 1 afterwards found had  been declined by another company  a short time before; another was a  man from Eastern Ontario, who fainted  wnile being examined. 1 have a dim  recollection there was a fourth man  but cannot feme,ulier tlie details. People will not insure their lives without  being canvassed, and in fact, as a rule,  they must be canvassed long and per  sistently. The British government  has an insurance department and have  put it in the reach of everybody, for  every postmaster throughout the kingdom is authorized to receive applications. Nevertheless the amount of  business is so pitifully small that it is  never mentioned without a laugh.  "Again it is slated our agenda are  paid too much. If we are to employ  agents to persuade people to insure  their lives we must give them enough  to live ou just as commercial travelers  have to be paid. The average income  of the life insurance agent is perhaps  S750; the statement has been made and  I believ*-; it is true. Do you know  agents who are rich or even well off ?  In fact how many do you know who  make more than a bare living ? There  are two ways of paying agents, by  salary or commission, I know that  the business obtained by the men  under salary always calls for a higher  rate.      We   must   pay    these  American  average..  ...  British average   German average    20 OC I  French average     30 70  Equitable   of   England,   which  pays no commission     29 'J2  London Life, no commissions....   34 25  " There is also another more important factor to be considered and that is  the profit derived from investments.  It is a very easy thing for the manager of a financial institution to lind  investments that are absolutely safe,  provided he does not care bow low the  interest may be. It is, however, the  duty of the management of a life, insurance company to obtain as high a  rate as possible upon the investments,  while, however, always remembering  the first and most important thing is  the necessity ot absolutesecurity. This  is often a difficult problem, but on its  satisfactory solution depends to a large  extent tlie prosperity of the company.  If the officers are content  to  take utily  such 1-iH-edged   bonds  as   are offered  ""     '  in  the   market   without   making  any  special   effort   to   get a   better return  upon their money, thev  are neglectful  , ,,    -.* .      ,,,, " .   .        ,        "j       "For  -full   ���jarUctila'-s,   first  class   nr  or their trust.

"The companies have to earn three:  and one-half per cent, in order to meet  their obligations and it is only what  thep get beyond that rate lhat is profit.  If the govern men t of a non-progressive  company were to so invest their funds  as to net only three and a half per  cent, they will by so doing cut off  from their policy holders this great-  source of profit. On the oilier hand a  company managed with a |jroper degree of financial ability is *".ble to earn  such large surpluses bevoud that minimum rate of interest that its policy  holders benefit enormously.  " The greatest danger from this insurance agitation is that the public  mind might be excited to unjust and  unwise legislation which would never  be permitted under normal conditions.  There has, for example, been some talk  of restricting the investment powers  of the companies. If there is one  thing which the New York investigation has shown very clearly, it is that  the investments of even the most criticised of the American life companies  have been remarkably good "Their  securities-have on the whole come out  with flying colors. It is true that in  some instances certain officials made a  profit out of the sales to the companies  which thus did'not get their bonds as.  cheaply as they might have done, but  this does not interfere with the high  quality of the bonds themselves.

The majority of the members of three  classes of municipal electors, who have*  hitherto been exempt from the city  road tax, are now threatened with disfranchisement unless they pay a tax  directly to the city from which they  have always been declared axempt by  Ai statutes in force in every province in  the Dominion.  Such is the effect of one of the many  amendments to the Municipal Clauses  Act, which were hastily adopted at the  last session of the provincial legisla-  .'.;.'  ture.   The amount of tax is small and  -��� it will probably not materially affect  the numbers of ��� qualified voters?   But  it is almost certain that the effect was  not intended nor even forseen by the  municipal committee nor by the legislature.  , The voters are broadly divided into  1 two classes, assessed property  owners  and householders.   The former are not  ���* affected bv the recent leg-islation, bu;  an entirely new definition of hottse-  V holder has been adopted.  Up to and including last year the  -" qualification for voting as a house-  .^'. holder was continuous residence in the  city for 12 months preceding registration, and the payment of $60 a year for  house or. room rent in money or its  equivalent and the payment of the  statutory road tax of $2 a year.  The payment of $60 or of any sum is  no longer requisite. All that is necessary is the payment of $2 during the  year directly to the city. As most of  the voters have to buy the road tax  it seemed naturally at first sight that  the effect of the amendment was simply  to do away with the requiremeut of  $60 for rent.  But the fact was evidently overlooked  that there were, and are, three classes  whose members are entitled to vote  although exempt from payment of the  road tax. The classes are,, women over  21 years of age, men over SO, and members of the Canadian militia.  Among other requirements under  the new law, the city clerk is required  ty display the voters's lists in full on  the outside doors of the city buildings,  and to insert names daily as they are  received by him duly attested.  The names of assessed property owners will go on the lists as a matter of  course and without application, provided they have paid all rates, taxes  or license fees not chargeable acainst  land. Those who wish to vote as  householders must make a declaration,  forms for which which may be had on  application to the city clerk, that they  have, paid resided in the city for 12  months continuously, and that they  have paid directly to the city during  the year, the sum of 85.  No deduction may be received by the  city clerk, who is also collector of  votes, more than 48 hours after it has  been made.  .On important feature of the changes  in the law is that which fixes the date  for municipal elections. Heretofore  nominations have been held on the  second Monday in January and elections the Thursday following. The  dates are now changed to the third  Monday ~"atid���the~third~ Monday-and  ������following Thursday respectively. The  dates for 1906 will therefore be, for  ��� nominations,' January 15th "and for  elections, January 18th.  ,, The postponement of elections by a  week may have the effect of deferring  the opening of civic election campaigns  until after the Christmas and New  Year holidays, which would probably  cause no displeasure to anyone concerned,        v' '���    ��� "���  :   a     ���   ' '  The flouring of gold, whibh occurs  in the parting of buttons carrying a  high proportion of silver, can be overcome by dropping the button into hot  acid instead of cold.

REGULAR DIVIDENDS.  The payment of nearly half a  million dollars in dividends by  the Granby company and the announcement that regular dividends will be paid in the future,  marks a new era in the history  of low-grade mining in. the  Boundary. At an extraordinary  general meeting of the shareholders held in New York on Friday last a dividend of $405,000  was declared. This is at the rate  of three per cent, on the issued  shares. The par value of the  stock was raised from $10 to $100  and instructions were issued to  apply to the legislature to secure  the necessary amendments to the  act of incorporation authorizing  the directors to declare regular  ^dividends���without^calling���the  shareholders together.  It is gratifying to know that  those who first showed their faith  in the Granby mines will be the  largest recipients of dividends.  Jay P. Graves who stayed with  the mines dining- the trying experimental days, still, retains a  large block of stock aud is one of  the heaviest individual shareholders. Henry White, another  pioneer of the Boundary, retained  a large block of stock, and A. L.  White, who has been Mr. Graves-  right hand mau, is one of the  lucky ones.  The Granby is only the first of  the big low-grade mines of the  Boundary to become a regular  dividend payer. The B C. Copper company, with the comprehensive policy of expansion which  has just been announced, and the  Dominion Copper company, are  sure to join the Granby in demonstrating that those who invested  in the big mines of the Boundary will reap a sure and lasting  profit on their investment.  Terminal city, who used every  means in their'power to thwart  the efforts to secure railway competition and to leave Vancouver  and all other Southern British  Columbia towns at the mercy of  one railway corporation. They  should now be able to see that  one railway can make or break a  city. All it has to do is to arrange its rates to suit its own  selfish purposes' and no city can  live unless 'it can secure relief  from a rival railway company.  The Vancouver merchants would  not dare to take a stand against  the C. P. R if they could not  route their goods by another railway. The friends of railway  monopoly are always proclaiming that there is no such thing as  railway'competition. But it is a  mighty nice thing to have another railway when a big* corporation like the Canadian Prcific  takes a position that,is detrimental to the best interests of a city.  the everlasting stick-to-itiven ess.  the continual boosting of their  citizens. ?

It would  be much more satisfactory, too,  if the change could be made without a resort to legislative force.  Paternal legislation is objectionable at best.

This week we received from  the chairman of the Publicity  committed of the Spokane 150,-  000 Booster club a letter stating  that his committee were arranging a comprehensive programme  of publicity for the Inland Empire." They desired the assistance and co-operation of all im.  por tan t centers and wanted the  names of the president aud secretary of the Greenwood Board of  Trade. We have refrained from  answering this letter.  AN OBJECT LESSON.

When cold  it is hard and crystalline, but if slightly  heated it is very soft, and it is susceptible to anp treatment that brass ��may  receive. In drawing- zinc sheet in a  press, the differende between the melting: point of the metal and that of the  tempeiatureat which the best drawing  takes place is so small that the problem of heating becomes serious if one  is not conversant with the fact that  zinc may be heatod in oil. Attempts  are made to heat by other means, but  much waste occurs. To heat in this  manner, a heavy oil with a high flash  point should?be used, and a thermometer employed to register the temperature. This instrument will obviate  any over or under healing.and prevent  waste from such means. In addition  to acting as a heating agent, the oil  has a good effect on   the drawing dies.  The Pyrariiid of Cheops, or the Great  Pyramid, the greatest of all Egyptian  pyramids, covers an area of twelve  acres. Its base was 768 feet square.  Its perpendicular height was 482 feet,  and its area at the top is about twelve  yards square. The content of solid  masonry has been estimated at 82,111,-  000 cubic feet. According to Herodotus it took 100,000 men ten years to  make a causeway 3.000 feet long to facilitate the transportation of the stone  from the Turab quarries, and a similar number of men twenty years to  complete the pyramid.

Modern Petrology as a-systematic  science is yet immature, owing to the  conflicting ideas still existing regarding the genesis of rocks and the dif-  ferentationF which ''..has given  rise to  various rock species. American geologists have proposed a new system for  the classification of rocks, but it is  objected to on aecount of the fact that  the progress being regularly made in  the science will not ipermit of the per  manent adoption of a system. Another  objection is that petrologo ceases to  have any reason for existence when  divorced from geology.  The calculation of losses in power  transmission is always an important  part in distribution work. A recent  examination of a certain power plant  and line showed the following losses*.  Betweenlthe engine cyllinders and the  high potential 'bus bars in the generating station, 12.9 per cent.; on the line,  5.5 per cent.; at the sub-station, 13.7  percent. In this case the loss on the  line is low in comparison with the other  losses, and it is quite probable that  a different installation would prove  more economical.  Umber is found in various ^places,  but the best variety is known as Turkish umber, and is mihed in Cyprus,  Raw. umber in color is olive brown,  and when heated becomes of a reddish  color. It is composed of oxides of iron  and manganese, some silica, lime,  magnesia, alumina, water, etc. When  highly heated all the water is drawn  off, causing a change in the brown,  hydrated ferric oxide to red ferric  oxide, and also increasing the percentage of red brown manganese oxide.  The pigment resulting is known as  burnt umber. .  The earliest rocks rocog-ni zed in the  Central Copper River region, Alaska,  are the Tanana and 'Dadina schists,  which include both sedimentary and  igneous members, and are regarded  tentatively as pure Silurian. The Silurian system may be represented in the  conglomerates and schists of the Val-  defc'formation. These rocks constitute  the chief part of the Chugach range.  ��� For Sale���Small safe, $50; computing scale, $40 ; set bobsleighs, $35. Also the earth and all that's on it.

J.   Hill,  president  of the  Great Northern railway, promises has  a way of coming* true, and Mr. Hill has  a reputation for doing more than he  t.ilks Consequently it is no matter  for surprise that the preliminaries are  now being* made for the commencement of construction on the V., V. &  E. railway .from Cloverdale easl to  Midway. When Mr. Hill was in Vancouver in the autumn he stated in an  interview published in the World that  construction of the V., V. & 10. from  Cloverdale east would be begun in  early winter, and already supplies for  thirty men have been purchased in  New Westminster and shipped to  Cloverdale. Machinery for grading* is  understood to be on the way and in  the meantime the surveyors are busy.  Vancouver merchants will hail with  delight this forword movement toward  the ��� corhpletion of the long-wanted  direct line to Kootenay.���World.  Word comes' from Nighthawk that  Monday morning* Ed. ; Anderson, a  railroad laoorer working in Chitulahl's  camp, was shot and killed by Paul  Salvia, timekeeper'for Winters, Parsons & Boomer at their Nighthawk  camp. The tragedy occurred in A.  landberg's saloon and was the result  of a quarrel. The men had words a  few minutes before the shooting and  Salvis; towether with a halt'brecd Indian who had been working for Winters, Parsons & Boomer, left the  saloon. Tn a few minutes they returned, the Indian in the lead and Sal-  vis a few feet behind. When they were  well into the room, Salvis stepped from  behind the Indian and opened fire on  Anderson who fell at the first shot.  SbIvis fired five shots altogether, three  os whieh took effect, the victim dying  almost Instantly. Deputy Sheriff Mct-  calf went from Loomis tog Nighthawk  Tuesday and arrested Salvis and the  Indian and took them to Concotiully to  jail. The dead man was buried ai  Nighthawk Wednesday afternoon.  year he was superintendent of the  Highland mine at Bingham, Utah,  owned by the Utah Consolidated Mining company ; in fact, he has held responsible positions in mines for many  years. Mr. Anderson was seen before  his departure for Kimberley yesterday,  and said he had just returned from a  trip through northern and southern  Idaho and also a portion of Oregon, in  company with S. F. Parish, formerly  manager of the LeRoi. Mr. Parrish,  he said, has returned to Salt Lake to  look after certain mining interests in  Utah and Arizona, arid is expected to  return north about the first of the year.  Mr. Parrish, he says, is enjoying very  good health and would have liked to  visit Rossland for the purpose of see  ing his many friends, but a press ot  business prevented him from doing so.  Asked about the Sullivan group, of  which he is to assume charge, he replied that he had never visited the  property and, therefore, could not say  anything in regard to its merits. The  group had a first-class reputation and  his intention was to do all that he possibly could while he was in charge to  promote the best interests of the company.���Rossland Miner.

Tolmie, provincial veterinary surgeonj arrived in Vancouver  yesterday, having just returned from  a week spent in Hie Okanagan valley,  where he has two men steadily at  work among the small tanners, ranchers and others owning horses in that  district in an effort to prevent the  spread of glanders, so prevalent in  many places along the coast. Dr. Tol- ������ *-*^��  mie states that a greater percentage of .^  glanders has been found among the ** '  horses in and about Vernon and Peach-  land, but that every means of prevention to stop the spread of the disease is  being taken? "In nearly every section we are finding some horses that  are contaminated," said Dr. Tolmie.  " In the severe cases the horses are being destroyed, b^t where the disease is  found to exist only in a  slight  degree  "trfated^fbr'ra"  instance  it is  the animals are being  cure. In almost every  found, to be chronic glanders, and the  Mallein test, which is adopted by almost every civilized country, is being  used where no clinical symptoms appear. Among the ranch horses yery  little of the glanders is being discovered, but in towns and villages  where horses are continually in touch  with one another the disease is very  common." Dr. Tolmie states that although it strikes some of the horse  owners rather hard, all are tendering  every assistance in their power to help  clear the country of this dread disease.  Dr. Tolmie leaves for the Okanagan  again on this afternoon's train aud  will continue his efforts to stamp out  this disease in tliat territory. Speaking of the prospects of that country,  Dr. Tolmie states that there are a  large number ef Western farmers com  ing in there looking over property with  the intention of locating, and most of  them are very well pleased with the  country.-���News-Advertiser.  Robert H. Anderson, the well-known  mining man of this city, has accepted  the place of mine manager of the  properties of���the Sullivan Group Mining company at Kimberley, East  Kootenay, and left for there yesterday.  Mr Anderson is one of the best known  mining superintendents and managers  in this country. For tive years he was  manager of the B C mine near Eholt,  and during that period the mine paid a  profit of nearly three quarters of a  million to its owners. For two years  he was the superintendent of the Le  Roi mine, and those who are best in  formed as to the condition of thai  mine when he left it and the quantity  of ore which was (rotten out under his  administration will understand that he  did first class work while there.    For a  j^ Never in the history of the Boundary has the district had a brighter outlook than today. With the successful dc  *& velopment of the immense large bodies of low grade ore and the enlarged and much improved facilities for treating  -�� at a very small cost, the continued opening up of new high grade propsrties an! thilr sisssssful ani profitabl  .*4| operation has made the Boundary famous as a mining centre, and every day adds more to the list of new finds and  ^ bigger values. It is readily admitted that Greenwood is the Eldorado of the Boundary with all roads leading thereto,  "tt and surrounded as it is, with such magnificent resources is destined in a few years to be a second Butte?

Effective on thft 10th inst. a hew  ti'ain service and time card will be  adopted on the Spokane Falls and  Northern system. . The new service is  regarded by the officials of the road as  a decided improvement on the present  arrangement. Running time is cut  down, one mixed train is eliminated,  and hours of departure and arrival are  rearranged to accommodate the traveling public.  One important outcome is 'the opening of the Curlew-Midway section of  the Vancouver, Victoria and Eastern  road to passenger traffic, and the substitution of Midway for Northport as  the northern terminal for the regular  through train service.  Hereafter the through  train  on the  Spokane Falls and  Northern  will run  --from-Spokane^to^MJiL\vjL\*i._:^Ju^.,Jh_tf  actual terminal being at Ferry, Wash.,  passing through Grand Forks, B.C,  and Curlew, Wash., and en route tp  Midway. The distance is 167 miles.  It will leave Spokane daily at 9:45 a. m.  as before, reaching Midway at 5:40 p.  m. Returning, ttie through train will  leave Midway daily at 10 a. m., and  reach Spokane at 5,45 p..ra. The pre-  sent hour of arrival is 6:20 p. m.  The mixed train from Nelson, B. C.  to Northport will be eliminated and a  solid passenger train will be operated  dsxily .from Marcus to Nelson, connecting with the Spokane and Midway  trains. The present train reaches Nelson at 8:45 p. in., while Ihe uew train  will arrive at the Kootenay lake terminal at 6:50 p. ui.. union station time,  or 6 o'clock at the high line station.  Returning, the Nelson train departs  at 7:20 under vhc'existing schedule,  while the new train will leave at 9:05,  and make connections with the through  train for Spokane. This improvement  in running time will afl'ord gratification to Nelson people who have been  dissatisfied with the (-.ompany's train  service.  Thepresent mixed train to Republic,  Wash., will be maintained but running  time will be improved by having the  train depart an hour later, or at 8 instead of 7 a. m.. and arrive 15 minutes  earlier, at 6:15 instead of 6:30 p. m.  The service on the Rossland branch  is affected to a trilling extent only.  The train now departing at 11:05 will  leave at 10:55 under the new time card,  but the north bound train will Teach  Rossland each evening at 5:15 as at  present.  A through coach for N--iso*i will be  run daily out of Spokane, and the Nelson train will also carry a through  couch for Spokane. It i.s probable the  buffet cars now running between Spo  kane and Northport will be carried to  Midway after the new- time card is in  working order.  A HOTEL ON WHEELS  New Dining Cars of the Great Northern Railway a Feature of the  Oriental Limited.  It is, perhaps, best to say that in  every respect���china, cuisine and attendants, the dining car serviee of the  Oriental Limited is in keeping" with  the luxuriousnpss of the remainder of  this regal train, and has won, as"the  dining car service has always helped  to win, the title, "The Comfortable  Way," for the Great Northern railway.  The new dining car service of the Oriental Limited equals in beauty, design  and interior furnishings anything  which is operated on any transcontinental line. Every luxury which a  first-class hotel or club affords in the  way of service is really on the dining  cat" of the Oriental Limited. The new  dining* cars were built with !a special  purpose in view of affording the most  comfortable surroundings, as well as  giving the traveler a unique and luxurious place in which to enjoy his meals.  A gentleman who recently made the  journey to the coast from St. Paul on  the Oriental Limited, in speaking of  the dining car service, said:  "I have .traveled on almost every  important railroad * in the United  States, but I have yet to find one which  surpasses the Oriental Limited in the  comfort -and convenience afforded the  traveler. Your dining car service is  excellent, the equal of any in the  country, and the superior of many. I  was particularly struck with the  beauty of the interior furnishings of  these dining cars ; they are really a  novelty of car architecture."
