The Volcanic Mine
The Michigan Syndicate Secure   the
North Fork Property
It Is Expected That Diamond Drill Operations Will Be Com
menced Inside of Ten Days—Evening Star
Group Also Bonded.
In tho latter part of July last Dr.
K. Harkin, Dr. 0. G. Youngquist
and Alex Mead, M. E.,of Marquette,
Mich., visited tin.' Boundary coitn-
try, While in the city they visited
the Volettnic mine, owned by R. A.
Blown So favorably impressed
were they with this property that before returning east they secured an
option on it. After returning to
Michigan they formed a company
railed the Volcanic Mining & Developing company, which was organized under the laws of the state
ol Michigan. The new eompany
also acquired ten other claims on
Volanio mountain.
No dilliciilty whatever was .experienced by these gentlemen in
promoting Hie enterprise, and Saturday lust Mr. \V. A. Harkin, who
negotiated the deal with K. ' A.
Brown, received a wire from the promoters of the new company suiting
llwt ,implc£ftinds were now being
forwarded, as well as a power of attorney on behalf of the company
authorizing him to sign a contract
on their behalf with the libvles
Bros.' Diamond Drill eompany, of
Spokane; It is understood that the
contract will be signed this week,
ami operations will be under way
inside of ten days.
The Roylcs brother have the reputation of being the best diamond
drill experts in the Northwest, having done work for the Granby company and other large mining companies throughout the Boundary.
The plant will lie shipped in immediately by rail, and it' is expected
there will be 600 feet of rock woik
done per month.
Mr. Harkin has been appointed
resident agent for the eompany,
which hIbo expects to shortly undertake surface quarrying on the Bentley grounp of claims, located on the
westerly slope of Volcanic mountain, where the recent collapse of
trap rock exposed a large ore body
giving average values of 812 per ton
copper, gold und silver, in the order
named. If the diamond drill operations should prove the Volcanic ore
bodies to be of Sufficient smelting
value, development work on an extensive scale will he commenced in
the spring. This experimental test
is fraught with great possibilities
for thc Boundary country. If pay
ore in sufficient quantities is secured the company will also erect
its own smelter at Volcanic City,
where they have acquired an optio n
on fifty acres for a site.
The same people recently acquired
a working bond on the Evening
Star group, situated on the Anaconda road about one and one-half
miles southeast of the Granby group
of mines, and huve already erected
a cabin and started a small force of
money he could scrape together iu

city, lie now reaps the reward i
his labors, and will see his,cherished
hope nillillcd—I bat of seeing the
Volcanic developed on a large scale.
Mr. Brown was born at St. M"i

a couple of years prior to his being

Largest in Canada
Five Furnaces in Blast at Granby, Six
in a Few Days.
One and One-Half Million Pounds of Blister Copper Will
Be Turned Oat Monthly When the Six Furnaces Are in Blast.
The Granby smelter now have live
furnaces in blast, the fifth having
been blown ill last week. They are
now smelting at the rute of about
1750 tons per day, and will in the
course of a day or so blow in the
sixth, giving the works their maximum capacity, which will be 2100
tons every twenty-four hours.
Thc (iranby smelter ean now boast
of being the largest smelting plant
in the Dominion of Canada. The
improvements that have been made
in Ihe last few months have been
numerous, so that the normal capacity, which has been to turn out
blister copper at tbe rate of about
one million pounds a month, will
now be increased to a monthly capacity of nearly a million and a half
pounds. Besides the slag tramway
lor hauling away the slag from four
if tbe six furnaces, the new additions to the smelter include the two
new water packet furnaces, manufactured, as were tbe others, by ihe
\ 1 - hulmors company of Chicago,
fhreo new Comiellsyille blowers I
have also been added, thus providing one blower for each furnace, with
one in reserve for emergencies.   The1
flue dust chamber has also been en-
largen by 250 feet.
The mine equipment ut their
Phoenix property is fully , capable
now, with the BO-drill air compressors and the two steam shovels, of
handling a daily tonnage of 50110
tons.
Considering the short time the
company have been in operation in
tbe Boundary, they have made marvellous strides. From a plant with
a capacity of 600 tons a day, and a
force of workmen numbering but
100, on August 21, 1900, when they
first started up, to their present capacity of 2100 tons per day, with a
working force of nearly 400. und a
monthly payroll of over S.'l7,Opo, is
an enviable record. Tl is proves
conclusively ihal Ihe resources of [he
Bpuudary country are unrivaled
when proper management ami up-lo-
date,methods are employed in developing them, the same as the
Granby company huve done, and it
will only be a matter of u few years
wben Grand Forks and the Boundary
country will become the greatest
milling and smelting centre in
America.
da, the eastern, middle and western
states, from New York to Seattle,
all due to thc gigantic stiaface showings, and the pluck and energy of
the locator, It. A. Brown, who lost
no opportunity to talk about the
merits of his wonderful Volcanic
property whenever and wherever he
had the chance. He backed up his
faith   by   expending every cent of
covered a ledge of Concentrating ovi',
but owing to the ownership of tbe
territory being ill dispute between
the Ontario and Manitoba governments, he decided not to take any
chances on n doubtful title; so he
covered up the ledge, which he
thinks is still undiscovered, and
started west. He reached the Sel-
kirks and the Rockies by way of the
'.'. Y. R., and spent considerable lime
prospecting for miles on each side of
be rouie. Finding nothing, he
made a "dug-out," in which he
floated down the Columbia to Col-
vide, and from there he drifted into
the Boundary country and located
thc famous Volcanic. This was in
the winter of 1888. The staking of
the Volcanic and his subsequent relocation of the property is so well
known that it is not necessary to
repeat. Ill order to raise money for
development, and also for the purpose of fighting lawsuits whioh he i
unfortunately got mixed up in, he
took to trapping, and spent several I
winters at this occupation, covering
the territory between the North Fork
and Arrow lakes, having a line of
traps stretching out over 100 miles.
Through ull those hard times and up
to the present he has managed to
hang on to his favorite property, and
it is to la hoped that is drenni of
opening up a mammoth mine will
soon be realized.

TUE-iDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1903
I'i' seems that Socialists are no
better than Grits and Tories in supporting their papers. The Vancouver Clarion, the official organ of
the British Columbia Socialists, has
gone to the journalistic graveyard.
The cause of its sudden demise was
non-support.
Mu. VV. A. Harkin is to he congratulated on the successful termination of the Volcanic deal. During
the past six months he has labored
indefatigably to consummate the
transfer of this property. At times
his efforts appeared to be confronted
by insurmountable barriers, but he
kept pluckily at the ta^k he had undertaken, und ns a consequence he
is about to reap the reward which
always follows perseverance.
Thk American railways are more
destructive of human life than the
average foreign war nowadays. The
interstate commerce commission has
just issued a bulletin showing a large
increase in the number of railroad
casualties during the fiscal year
closed June 30 last, as compared
with the previous fiscal year. There
were 8658 persons killed and 45,997
n ured during the year, against 2819
killed and 39,800 injured the year
before.
The Engineering News of New
York city shows from a report made
to the city by one of the commissioners of accounts how corporations
evade paying the tax that is bused
upon a percentage of their net incomes. The contract under which
the electrical subways in Manhattan
borough were built provided that
the eity should receive all of the net
profits of the company in excess of
10 per cent, but no adequate provision seems to have been made for
thc accounting necessrry to enable
the city to determine what was due
it and apparently no provision whatever was made to safeguard the city
agaiiiHt doctored accounts. Mr.
Robert Owen, the commissioner, reports that "in his opinion thc
yearly deficits reported by the company operating the electrical subways should be profits instead, and
tbat the city is entitled to revenue,
whereas it has never received a cent.
Large blocks of stock on which only
1 per cent was paid in cash were
charged to construction at pur, and
similar charges were made on account of mortgage bonds at heavy
discounts issued in payment for
work done by the construction company. This company, also, was
paid on the basis of cost, plus 15 per
cent. Mr. Owen jor these and other
reasons, deducts 83,290,000 from thc
construction cost of $7,492,000 submitted by the subway company on
January 1, 1903. By means of such
deductions he makes out that the
earnings on actual cash investment
have been sufficient to entitle the
city to a share in thc profits of the
company. Into the details or merits
of this controversy we do not intend
to go. It merely serveB as a fresh
illustration of the folly of basing
payments for municipal franchises
on net earnings and at the same time
exercising no public supervision
over the accounts of the franchise
company. It is because of the opportunities for juggling accounts
thus afforded that gross rather than
net earnings are a preferable basis
for reckoning municipal revenues
from franchise companies, at least
unless there is effective public control of capitalization and accounting
and full publicity of accounts."

The regular meeting of   the  city
ouncil was held last evening in the
council   chamber.     Those   present
were   Mayor Burrell,  Aid. Feeney.
Gaw, Martin, McLellan and Peterson.
On motion of Aid. McLellan and
Martin, the salary of the police
magistrate was fixed ut 850 per
month, without perquisites.
On motion of Aid. McLellan and
Martin, the ohairmnn of the water
and light committee was authorized
to lower the water pipe on Winnipeg
avenue at the Methodist parsonage,
and to take steps to protect the pipe
Fourth street, north of Victoria,
from the cold.
The following resolution was
moved by Aid. McLellan and sec-
inded by Aid. Peterson: That in
the matter of the communication
under the terms of the Amalgamation Act, which was before the coun-
:il for consideration at the last meeting, be it resolved that the arc lamp
received from the commissioners be
placed on the corner of Winnipeg
avenue and Donald street as per
agreement between the council and
the commissioners. The eounci
hereby agrees to replace the lamp
taken from the crossing on theGrenl
Northern near the resilience of Mr.
Smith when requested to do so by
the commissioners, or on receiving a
written request from the majority
of the ratepayers residing within thc
limits of the former eity of Columbia. The council further agrees U ■
pay the commissioners on demand
for one hydrant and other water
works material taken by an employe
of the city, and the city clerk is
hereby instructed to send a copy of
this resolution to the commissioners.
Quito a heated discussion took
place on the resolution. Aid, Gaw
stated that as the city of Grand Forks
was paying for the improvements in
the West end, they had a perfect
right to take them away or replace
them, just as they saw fit. Aid.
McLellan differed with him. He
thought the city had no right whatever to interfere with the works in
the West end. i. e., the fomrcr city o
Columbia. Thc money for these
improvements had been raised by
debentures prior to amalgamation in
order to equalize the indebtedness
of the two cities. So lung as thc commissioners appointed by the government had charge of the work the
city, he said, had no control over it.
Some of the other aldermen did not
care to discuss tbe mutter, und on
motion of Aid. Martin, seconded by
Aid. Feeney, further debute on the
resolution was postponed for one
week.
Aid. McLellan gave notice that
he would, at thc next meeting,
introduce a by-law providing for the
remuneration of the mayor for his
services during the current year.
He also gave notice of a by-law providing for the sale of all lands in arrears for two years of taxes.
A communication was read from
Colin Campbell, offering to aukit the
eity books for 1903 on the Bame terms
as last year.    Action postponed fc
one week.

Mainly About People.
As the coffin containing the affectionate wife of a sorrowing husband was being conveyed to the churchyard in a certain country parish in the South of Scotland it accidentally struck against the
corner of a wall, in consequence of which
circumstance the deceased was aroused
from a trance and lived for aevoml years.
When the poor woman really died a few
yearB afterward, in the act of passing
the snme spot the husb.ind anxiously exclaimed to the bearers of the coffin,
"Tak' tent (care) of the corner tbil
time."
Labouchere and King Edward (as
Prince of Wales) were for years fa3t
friends. Apropos of this friendship, Lab*
by was once asked what he Killed the
Frince when he dined at Marlborough
House. "Well," said thc famous radical,
"when the soup comes on I address him
as 'Your Royal Highness.' The iish softens the reserve and I get a little chummier and often as not call him 'Wales,'
while during the entrees-and joints I get
quite familiar and he becomes 'Eddie,'
while he ships me on the back and dubs
me 'tabby.'"
An Englishman wns traveling not long
ago in a compartment of a London train.
At one of the stations a German entered
the carriage and took the seat opposite
the Englishman. When the train had
started, the German, seeing the other's
cigar, boldly asked for one. Although
astonished at the request, thc Englishman nevertheless pulled out his case and
handed it to the stranger. The German
lighted the cigar, took a few puffs, and,
beaming affably through hi3 spectacles,
•aid: "I vould not haf droubted you, but
I had a match in mine boggit, and I did
not know vat to do mit him."
In a mining town in the mountains of
Virginia lived two little chaps aged eight
and nine years, neighbors and good
friends, who passed most of their leisure
time together in boyish sports, but, like
all healthy boys, they sometimes
"scrapped." On one of these occasion?
the younger one, who was built on the
lines of the proverbial man who could not
stop a pig in an alley, was being twitted
by his companion on his bow legs. Ho
stood it manfully for a while, but finally,
losing patience, he blurted out: "Well, 1
may be bow-legged, but when the Lord
made you He made you as ugly as He
could and then hit you in the face."
At a Scottish town, the other day, a
Londoner on his way to a hotel addressed the porter who led the way:
"Not a large place this?" "Na verra,"
was the answer. "Has it a corporation?1'
"A what, sir?" enquired the baggage-
bearer. "I mean, who rules it?" "Rulc>
it? Jist the provost." "Ah, the provost.
Like our lord mayor? Has he got an;
insignia?" remarked the cockney. "In
signial What d'ye mean?" asked tin
puzzled Scotsman. "Yes, insignia; thai
is to sny, has he a chain?" the politi
visitor hinted. Whereupon the almos'
dumbfounded native gasped out: "A
chain, sir? The provoBt chained? Na
nal He gangs loose; but dinna b-
feared, he's quite harmless."
Dr. Daniel M. Stimsnn, the family phy
sician and lifelong friend of the lab
poet, Richard Henry Stoddard, relates ar
anecdote to the effect that the poet
while endeavoring to procure an 1m
promptu luncheon for a number o>
friends after Mrs. Stoddard and the ser
vunU had retired, found a box of sar
dines. His somewhat vigorous remark-
inspired by a sardine-can's objections to
the "open sesathe" of a dull jack-knife,
attracted the attention of Mrs. Stoddard
on the floor above. "What are you do
ing?" Bhe called down. "Opening a can
of Bardines." "With what?'1 "A dashed
old jack-knife" cried the exasperated
poet. "What did you think 1 was opeiv
ing It with?" "Well, dear," she said,
dryly, "I didn't exactly think you were
opening it with prayer 1"
Salvatore Cortesi, in a very readablr
article in the "World's Work" on King
Victor Emmanuel of Italy, says that after the assassin ation of his father, Queen
Margherita was very anxious that King
Humbert should be buried at the Superga
at Turin, where all the rest of the House
of Savoy lie, with the exception of the
great Victor Emmanuel. Moreover, her
Majesty did not wish to wound the susceptibilities of the papal party by a
state funeral in Rome. King Victor, pale
and tired, entered bhe room where the
Queen was, exclaiming: "Well, that is
arranged—my father will have a fitting
burial in the Pantheon." "Victor," cried
hia mother, "1 see you want to break
my heart. You offend my religion as
■well as my affections." "1 am sorry,
mother," he said gently, nnd then added
sternly; "the religion which is offended
at a martyr being buried iu his own
capital and lying beside his own father
needs radical changes."
A story Is told of Lahouchere at the
very beginning of his editorial career. A
friend came in one day, and, seeing a
quantity of books around, which had
been sent in for review, offered to bet
Labouchere that there was one book he
had not got in the office* Labouchere enquired the nnme oi the book, and his
friend promptly answered, "A Bible/!
With a laugh, Labouchere offered to j
bet ten pounds that he had even that
book. Turning the conversation in another direction, lie furtively sent a note
out into the cierk's office, telling the
boy to go downstairs and ask the hook-
sellers underneath for the loan of a
Bible. Presently he returned to the sub- |
jeot of the bet, and, calling his assistant j
In, nsked him whether he had a Bible
in the office. The, clerk produced the
book, which Lubouehuro handed over to
his friend, giving himself away, however, as he did so by saying sotto voce to
the clerk: "1 hope to goodness yOil didn't !
forget to cut the leaves!" Of course the
English Bible dots not require iu leaves
to be cut.

Polonium, the Latest Scientific
Senr.ation.
The wonder of milium is still be-,
fore us; and now up comes a
new element—at lonst new fronj
the newspaper standpoint. As at
matter of fact, nays "Current Literature,"
Jt ia quite as old ns radium, having been
discovered almost nt Ihe same time and
by the same persona—Professor and
Madame Curie. 1-ike radium, it is a con-
itituent of pitchblende and has many
characteristics similar to that clement.
The cause of tbe present interest in polonium Is due largely to certnin experiments recently conducted by Prof. W.
Markwald before the Chemical Congress
nt Berlin. Since then the papers have
been taken up with articles making all
manner of claims for the new element,
the most persistent of which is that it
will cure blindness. Concerning this element "Electricity" says:—
Scientists ns yet understand too little
of the marvelous properties of this new
element to venture more than vague predictions of what spheres of future usefulness it may fill, hut it is not improbable that it may bo found to perform
the present functions of the so-called
Roentgen or X-rays far more powerfully and without the somewhat cumbrous apparatus now essential to their
use. In a much higher degree even than
radium it possesses the property of shining in the dark, and although it is
known that actual particles inflnitesim-
ally small are being shot out from it
continually—a fact which is proved by
magnetic experiments—this strange substance does not seem to exhaust itself
nor to lose its luminous power with the
passage of time. Here, therefore, is a
hint, nt lenBt, of the future possibility of
a constant and brilliant illuminant generated without heat or combustion.
Polonium is more valuable than1 radium, and Professor Curie himself, who
has a chemically pure specimen of radium not larger than a buckshot and
weighing less than half a grain, would
not sell it for $20,000.
At the meeting in Berlin, Professor
Markwald exhibited a hit of polonium
weighing lfi-100 of a grain, which was
produced from two tons of uranium nt a
cost of $75. He then proceeded to give
b marvelous exhibition of the powers of
his speck of polonium. It intercepted
a strong current of electricity passing
through the air from the generator lo
the receiver, the air censing to be a conductor for the flashes. The room was
then dnrkened, and pieces of barium
platinum, and zinc-blende, placed near
the polonium, glowed with ft bright
greenish light. There is no doubt thai
the discovery of polonium is n most vain
able one, although no one can say as yet
how It oan be adapted to pra'-tical use.

Harder than Matrimony.
Like matrimony, flirting is harder thai
it looks. If one understands the ar:
there Is no more enjoyable method o!
whillng away an hour than by flirting
There are two kinds of flirts—men and
women. The latter are the worse. Ti
start a flirtation: Talk of wasted chance-
to a married woman, be cynical with a
debutante, pious with an actress, and
risque with a churcliwoman.
Have a past. Tiie young mnn with •■
Past Is a young man with a future, i'
.flirting. Use the "Rapt Gaze." You wil
'Nave to practice this before your mil
ror. Then there is the "Blaie Face," til
"Ennui Yawn," and tbe "Innocent Eye.'
Be very careful how and when you em
'ploy these. If, for instance* you an
flirting with an expert, and try tin
"Rapt Gaze," you will he clnssed by hev
as an amateur. It is well to hint oi
|dark tragedies in your life. In short, tin
■whole secret of successful flirting is ti
arouse a woman's curiosity, and neve
satisfy It.
If a widow should tell you you re
somble her dead husband, bow and re
tire. You are up ngninst it. Don't gel
tho reputation of being gauche and foi
saying malapropos things by discussing
marriage with women who nro married
Do not ask a woman if you may kis*
her. This Is not done in 'Society. That
is, such a request ia never made.
The voice is very important. A well
groomed voice is half the battle In the
conservatory. Practice modulations and
"thrills." Don't attempt to flirt at
dinner with a Golf Girl. At that stage
her roast Is much more interesting than
you are. Woit till she In through. Bhe'fl
through when Bhe sighs.
Flirting is like boxing—dangerous
when one party to it is unskilled. Be
careful, or a flirtation, innocently entered into, may lend you Into an engage

A Parisian Swindle.
A great traveler remarks that the
Parisian swindler Is the subtlest and the
most indomitable one in the world. A
frienoNif Mb the oilier day wns strolling
through a fashionable and expensive
French shop. A woman entered, and.
proceeded to purchase a very costly'
frock, and meanwhile a well-dressed man.
lingered at the doorway, as though waiting for her. The woman, her purchase
concluded, counted n roll of bank notes
and ndvanc-ed to the -jishier's desk, holding them in her hand. Then, all of a
sudden, the man rusned upon her. "You
wretchlw he exclaimed, "didn't I tell1
you that you shouldn't have that frockV'
And he slapped her upon the cheek, tore
the bank notes troin nor hand, and
stalked out of tho shop. The woman
fainted. It was ten minutes before f-ho
was brought to. On her recovery the
manager of the place said, regretfully:
"We are sorry, madam, for this occurrence.   Your husband "
"My husband! That was not my husband," tiie woman cried. "I never saw
