Negotiations for the acquisition  of the lands on Vancouver island  have been under way for sometime,  ���������the-company baviug secured- about  1500 of what is stated to be among  the best*coal properties in the district. ' Other private holdings in the  district are now being acquired:  This action of the Granby company has been warmlw welcomed  l>y the people of Vancouver island,  as'it. will mean further development  of the great coal area and in time  call for the employment of several  hundred men, thus stimulating industry. No time will be lost in  pfojeeuing with the development of  the properties acquired.  F. Al. Sylvester, managing direc  tor of trie Granby company, wbTle  in "'Victoria on Monday, confirmed  the fact of tbe company's purchase  of the coal lands and the plan relative to their development.  In Grand Forks the news that the  Granby is detetermined to make its  own coke has been received with  evidc.it satisfaction. It; is generally  conceded that development of the  coal lands purchased by the com  pany will put a stop to the periodi  cal shut-down of the smelter in this  city on account of coke shortage.  The company's acquisition of the  island coal properties is the direct  outcome of its determination to, in  future, have an assured source of its  c ike supply. The recent labor troubles in the Crow's' Nest section  where, through the closing down of  'opme'nt work.is being pushed'ahead  at a rate' which will mean a still  much greater production ot copper  in the future.  .It is not the-intention of the  Granby-company, at least not for  some time, to utilize its newly acquired island - coal properties for  purposes other than ��������� the .manufacture of coke for its own use. In the  future, it may be, ifc will branch out  into"the fuel bnsiness,and espec ally  into the manufacture of the. many  valuable by-products of coal, to , the  great "value of. which the- war has  directed attention.   *'-".'  The  Ladymith -Chronicle   com  ments as follows on this huge   deal:  In the course of an   interview   this  afternoon   with' - J. . H.  Hawthorn  thwaite, who was chiefly instruuien  ,tal in bringing about the investment  referred'to, that gentleman -congrat  ulated the citizens of Ladysmith on  the improved conditions that   must  at once take place through  the advent of coke ovens and the opening  up   of - coal   fields tributary to the  city by this  powerful  organization,  one of the greatest concerns  on  the  American  continent.    His   connection with the transaction   has   been  the' acquisition   of   the coal areas,  which, wtthout the assistance of H.  Treat, of Seattle, it would have been  impossible to complete the  arrangements.    Operations on  these prop  erties' have   already    been'    commenced.  ���������In connection-with.this it should  be mentioned- that Messrs. Haw  tnornthwaite and' Treat. have two  coal properties close tp Ladysmith  which will be operated ny a separate company, fc'u I ding are already  being erected, and there will be no  delay in .proceeding with all preliminary arrangements. The business and labor interests of Lady-  c-mith are to be congratulated on the  splendid outlook for miuing development.  NEED NO-PASSPORTS  TO ENTER CANADA  COPPER 10  BUILDBJGPLANT  3000-Ton Mill - for Copper  . Mountain, Where There  Huge Ore Reserves  The Canada Copper company,  owner of the British Columbia Copper .company, is being financed to  build a concentrating plant of 3000  tons daily capacity at the outset instead, of an initial unit of 1000 tons  daily, as was contemplated. 9a'ys a  New York report. The cost of the  plant, to be situated at Copper  mountain, near Princeton and its  contributory departments, will be  in the neighborhood of $2,000,000,  according to the same source of information. ,The improvements include an adequate hydro-electric  installation and a 12-mile railroad  spur from Princeton. The expenditure in development of the Copper  mountain mine was $396,000 up to,  July 1. ,  ���������Decision to build a mill of   3000  to is capacity was encouraged by re  suits   obtained   in   a  flotation test  mill  "of   50    tons   daily  capacity  on ibe Copper mountain   property.

This  tonnage   estimate   has   been   con  firmed   by   engineers  employed  to  make   an *ind* pendent survey, ac  cording to official statement.  It has  been stated repeatedly that the average content is -1.74 per  cent   copppr  and a small quantity of  recoverable  silver and gold.  These ore reserves haves a net  value of ������54,810,000, according to a  New York publication.

Duncan, Fourteenth  street. Seven fruit trees were de-  iberately destroyed by being pierced  all round the trunks with an auger.  The deliberate nature of the outrage is indicated by the methodical  manner in which it was gone about.  The auger route was obviously selected because it is the most silent.  Holes were bored so close one cut  into the next all round the trunk.  Three of them came down of their  own weight, and the others will  doubtless follow suit. Two of the  trees were twenty years old and  were valued by Mr. Duncan at $250.

The third anniversary of the  world war was appropiately.com  memorated in this city on Saturday  last by a public meeting being held  in'the city hall at 11 o'clock in the  morning. The attendance was large  and representative. . ��������� The speakers  were Mayor Acres, who presided,  Aid. McCallum and Judge Brown.  Mayor Acres, in opening the  meeting,, stated the object-for which  'it had been called. He spoke feelingly of the bravery of the Canadian  soldiers at the front, and paid a  high tribute to the noble work being done by the Canadian women  in the present struggle. When he  addressed a similar meeting a year  ago he had hoped that that would  be the last, but he trusted that before another months elapsed complete victory would rests with the  entente nations.  Aid. McCallnm paid a glowing  tribute to the bravery of the Canadian soldiers.in.action������ and .reviewed  the many battles in which they had  played a conspicuous part. They  had earned undying glory for themselves and imperishable fame for  the nation they represented. He  offered the following resolution:  "That on this third anniversary of  the declaration of a righteous war,  this meeting of the citizens of Grand  Forks records its iuflexible determination to continue to a victorious end  the strnggle in maintenance of tho.se  ideals of liberty and justice which are  the common aud sacred cause of the  allies."  Judge Brown,' in seconding the  resolution, reviewed some of the  major incidents of the war. With  the present disturbances in Russia,  he said the situation would now  be rather discouraging had not the  United States entered the war; but  tbe entry of the States into the  struggle, he thought,\would offset  any dioappointment Ibat might  come from Russia, and he felt con-  fidsnt of a final victory for tbe  liies. He did' not think tbat the  people who had been fortunate  enough to be left behind at home  were doing enough to win the war,  and he declared himself to be in  favor of conscription.  The resolution was adopted unanimously by the audience rising and  singing "God Save the King."  The funeral of Hon. Sir Richard  McBride was held on Wednesday  from his residence, T.hurloe square,  London, the remains being taken to  Golder's Green crematory.

There can be objection taken  to this.   But, in our humble opinion, the days  chosen are not felicitous.  Tuesday and Friday.

That is our publication clay, and' anyone who  has  f-ver  been  inside  a modern newspaper,  officer knows how strenuous the day  is  and  what a vast amount of nourishment is re-  - quired to keep the mental machinery running  smoothly; but in Quebec the day is supposed  to be meatless, anyway.    You surely see now  'what we meant when we said we had   been  discriminated against.    If the food controller  has no. serious objection, we should like to  substitute Sunday  for Friday as one of our  meatless days,  because  on Sunday it generally takes all our time to digest tlie sermons,  and if we attempted to mix these with board-  insj-honse steak we are afraid that there would  be a declaration of war somewhere in the  interior department of our anatomy.    To Tuesday we can offer no valid objection, because  that is  the day we generally go fishing; and  the wheat-bread clause in the edict does not  affect us.    We never eat it unless it is  thrust  upon us, as we prefer pie and cake.    These  dainties are still on the free list.  the present government.

D.MORRISON  ^  j  Speaking more seriously on the subject of  food .conservation, we overheard a gentleman  this evening make a very good suggestion.  Everybody knows that every little community  has a million or more too many dogs. In the  majority of cases they are useless curs, and  the average dog consumes as much food as a  workingman.' "Why not," said this man,  "kill off the dogs and save the food. It may  be need to save human lives be the war  ends." It is a suggestion worth giving serious  consideration.  At first the call was formen, munitions  and money. Now the cry is for men, munitions and food.  There is a real distinction between declaring war and declaring that a state of war exists. A government declares war when it  purposes to make war on another country. It  declares that a state of war exists when another government "has already attacked it.  The Tories are still in charge, of the flesh-  pots in this province. They usually take care  of their own party first.  The news of the sudden death in London of  Sir Richard McBride came as a great surprise  to'most of the people of this province and as  a decided shock to his many friends and admirers. ^When Sir Richard was active in  public life in this province we gave him credit  for being a shrewd and successful politician,  but maintained that he lacked the essential  sagacity of a statesman. Even' though he  has now passed away, we can not see our  way clear to alter that opinion. He rode Jon  a wave of marvelous prosperity while in power, and acted as if those days of inflated  values were endless. Had he been gifted with  a deeper foresight he would have foreseen that  the conditions that produced the prosperity  were transitory, and would have governed  .the province less recklessly than he did.  Food controllers in Canada andv the States  were appointed in order that the- men at the  front might be fed; in order that those behind  at home should not go hungry; in order that  Great Britain and her allies should not have  to retreat from the enemy for want of food.

U'Ren met with an accident, a  short distance above Hales, that resulted disastrously for his car. Mr.  U'Ren was running along at a pretty  goodspeed; the lights were rather  dim, and presently the car went  over the bank and turned turtle iu  the ditch. Mr. U'Ren jumped, and  thus saved himself from injury.  The escaping gasoline set fire to the  ecar, and it was burned to the grass  roots. The stranded driver was  picked up by Stanley Davis' car  and brought to town.  About twenty five drops of rain  per acre is now falling daily. It's  a slow way of irrigating the parched  eaith.  The district poultry show will  probably be held in Grand Forks  this year, as Trail does not seem to  want it.  The provincial legislature Ms  scheduled to reassembled next  Tuesday, the i4th inst., to consider  the prohibition question. A majority of tbe papers appear to think  that British Columbians will have  to go dry after October 1. From  what source they have obtained  their information is yet a secret.  The   Nort-^port   smelter   is   uovv  ^.guarded by United  States soldiers.  Owing'to the prevalence of dis  ease among grouse of all kinds, a  close season has been declared for  grouse, prairie chicken and ptarmigan east of tbe Cascade -range in  British Columbia.  Today is an abreviated payday at  the Granby smelter.  The United States government  will commandeer all American tonnage now on the seas as soon as the  shipping board is organized.  The convention in Winnipeg of  the Liberals of the four western  provinces has endorsed Sir Wilfaid  Laurier as leader.  Sir Richard McBride, for fourteen  years premier of British Columbia,  died in Uondon on Monday from  Brights disease. He was a native  srn of the province, and was'47  years of age. .'  The days are getting, shorter, and  it will soon be time to commence to  worry about next winter's supply of  fuel.  "If you want the real uews of  the Boundary, read The Sun," said  a citizen to the editor the other day;  "if you want gossip and conjecture,  read some other paper." We know  that he was not attempting to~ flatter us, because we never loan out  any money.  The mineral output of British  Columbia was worth $42,290,462  last year.  "We Ibok to^the resources of Canada, and to tbe indomitable energy  of Canadians for, an answer that  will shatter Germany's threat of  starvation," says Baron Rbonde,  food controller of -Great Britain, in  a message to Hon.
