Half-Yearly Reunion Held at
the Yale Last Monday
Evening.
The Pioneer Society of the Boundary anil Okariagan held its half
yearly reunion at'the Yale hotel last
Monday evening. Numbers of old-
timers always look forward with
pleasurable anticipations to these
reunions, as they afford an oppor-
- Aunity for renewing old friendships
and .exchanging reminiscences of
• pioneer experiences. Each year the
membership Toll shows fresh vacancies, as one after another' of the
hardy pioneers passes to his rest.
However, there are still a goodly
number of "hale and hearty members
who are ready on such occasions to
revive old memories.
The chair was occuped by the
pregident, Thos. McAuley, of Midway. Among those present were:
Thos. Hardy; Phoenix; Robert
KeiT, John H. East, Midway; Jas.
Kerr, Greenwood; John McLaren,
Carson; John A. Manly, R. R. Gilpin, E. Spraggett, R. AVasson, Jos.
Ward, W. K. C. Manly and P. T.
McCallum, city; J. R. Jackson,
Midway.
There were no set speeches. Each
member in turn delivered a sorts of
monologue, the speaker being frequently interrupted by impromptu
jests from his listeners.
A toast to the king's health was
duly honored, after "which P. T.
McCallum modestly declared that
he did'not feel entitled to be classed
among the real old-timers who had
reached the country before the flood.
He had, however, a lively recollection of life in the valley before the
advent of stage coaches and railways.
Mr. McAuley spoke of the value
of the association, saying that its
work would be better appreciated
\ tenW fifteen years hence. Thomas
Hardy, of Phoenix, followed with a
description of life among the old-
timers ten or twelve years ago.
E. Spraggett sketched the development of the district from his advent to the present time. He contrasted thc great difficulties the first
settlers had in traveling with the
easy method provided now with
three railroads.
After the singing of a Scotch song
by James Kerr, several amusing
stories of life among tbj^y-timers
were related by R. Bj^^HLujIphn-
A. Manly followed,/
Mr. Spraggett recalled the fact
that Tom Hardy had brought in the
first sleigh. Mr. Hardy then told
how he spent seven days making
the journey from the Columbia
river.
Thomas McAuley recalled that the
best coffee made in the district used
to be served at Eholt's barn. At
that time white women were at a
premium, there being only three in
the district between Osoyoos lake
and Marcus.
Thomas Hardy made the assertion that "Al" Manly used to cook
beans better than any other man in
the valley. A good reserve supply
was always kept on hand, too.
W. K. C. Manly told how he had
come out to see the country. . His
impressions were so favorable that
hastened east to get married before
coming here for good.
Business was then proceeded with.
On motion of John A. Manly, seconded .by E. Spraggett, it was decided to hold the next reunion and
banquet at Phoenix. It was also
resolved to admit to membership all
those who had come in before 1895.
Mr. Gilpin was appointed secretary
until the new officers were elected.
Vacancies on the executive were
filled by the election of P. T. McCallum, J. R. Jackson and John
McLaren.
WANT A SMELTER
G. S. Waterlow and Dr. H. Lewis
Jones, directors, of London, Eng.,
and Anthony J. McMillan, managing director of the Snowshoe Gold
& Copper Mines, Limited, owning
the Snowshoe mines near Phoenix,
inspected several smelter sites in the
valley in the immediate vicinity of
the city last Tuesday. John A.
Manly conducted the visitors around
the city and its environs. They left
the same day for Phoenix. *• They
will return to the city in a fortnight, after inspecting other prospective smelter sites and other
points in the Boundary. Mr. Waterlow "made the announcement that
experience has taught that each big
low-griide proposition in the Boundary must own its own smelting
plant.    In an interview he said:
' 'Our mines are now developed to
the stange when they can produce a
daily tonnage of 600 tons, a figure
that can soon be very largely increased.
"We are looking for a smelter site
in a provisional sort of way, and intend to deteawne the merits of the
vafl kre sites.

morning by Mj. Manly is an excellent one. If we locate here, our decision will largely hinge' upon the
inducements offered by your city.
We will return here very shortly,
and final action will be taken by the
board in London, Eng., after considering our report. Thomas A.
EdisOn, the American inventor, has
been experimenting with Snowshoe
and other ores, with a view to perfecting a system of treating them by
means of what he calls the magnetic
process. The method has not yet
been perfected, but Mr. Edison intimated to me his intention of resuming his experiments as soon as
he perfects he new storage battery.
It is quite simple. He crushes the
ore to a powder and by means of
magnets the gold-silver-copper constituents are separated, and the resulting product smelted."

FRIDAY,-SEPTEMBER 5, 1902
The prospects of another smelter
for Grand Forks should buoy the
spirits of our citizens. If the Snow-
shoe directors should .finally decide
to build here, the eity of (irand Forks
would doubtless act in her usual
liberal.way in granting any reasona-
inducemerits which the company
might ask. Thc benefits to be derived from ant||her smelting plant
here are too obvious to need any extended enumeration.

DIED
In Grand Forks, on Wednesday,
Sept, 3, 1902, at 1:80 p. m., John
A. Keogh, aged 36 years,, of
typhoid toxaemia.
Mr. Keogh was born in Mystic,
Conn. He came to this city five or
six years ago, having resided in Colorado and Montana prior to that
time. He was an Upright and
industrious young man, and
was deservedly popular with all
classes. He was manager of the
Suxsmith sawmills, besides owing
extensive mining interests. About
two months ago he had a narrow
escape while making an unsuccessful attempt to rescue his employer,
J. Suxsmith, from drowning in the
Kettle river. For many years he
was confidential clerk of Col. Marcas
Daly. His parents reside in Denver, Colorado. A brother, Ed
Keogh, lives in this city.
The funeral was held this morning, and was one of the largest ever
seen in the city. The procession left
the board7of trade rooms, were the
body lay in state for an hour, at 8:45
o'clock, I headed by the Fraternal
Order of Eagles, of which the deceased was a member, followed by
the Knights of Pythias, and proceeded to the Catholic church, where
an impressive service of an hour's
duration was held. After leaving
the church the cortege returned to
Bridge Square, where the societies
disbanded, and from which point
the remains were taken to the Great
Northern station and shipped to his
parents in Denver. The funeral
was held under the auspices of the
Fraternal Order of Eagles, and was
very impressive.
The July returns for the Ymir
mine show that 50 stamps were in ,'
operation 675 hours and the estimated profits amounted to $6850,
besides development and repairs.
This brings the total net profit made
at the mine during the first half of
thc present year to $52,535.

COLUMBIA
A City of Beautiful Environments, Healthful
Climate and Bountiful Resources-Civic
Improvements, Including Electric Light
and Waterworks Systems, Are Well
Advanced.
The Oity of Columbia is situated near the junotipn of
the North Porks of the Kettle river with the main Kettle
river,  and is distant about 300 miles east of Vancouver.
Thoroughly up-to-date and modern Electric Light and
Waterworks Systems are flow under construction, and will be
completed in September. The electric light syst.m will include street are lamps. The waterworks system is planned
on a sufficiently large scale to meet all present and future
needs, and insuring ample protection from the ravages of
fire. At present water is supplied the city by pumping from
a beautiful spring of exceptional purity.
The natural situation of the city for beauty Is not excelled
in Ameriea. A verdure clad and flower-bespangled rolling
prairie, traversed by a river of bright, sparkling wafer,
fringed with forest trees and surrounded by mouutains, forming a charming combination of pictureBquesness and grandeur.
The Columbia A Western railway, which was constructed
by the Canadian Pacific Ruilway company, has its station,
freight warehouse and yards in the oenter.of Columbia, and
the Vancouver, Victora A Eastern Railway company, has
located its depot, freight sheds and yards along the east line
of the corporation, thus giving the city connections with two
transcontinental lines. {
The Canadian Pacifie railway company has large interests in the city, having selected the site on account of the superior natural advantages as arailway centre,
The climate, taken all the year around, is the best in Canada—part of the summer is rather hot and dry, but the rest of
the year is enjoyable.
Throughout the Kettle River valley there is an extent »f
fertile agricultural land, part of which is now being cultivated.
Apples, plums, pears, prunes, cherries and all the small
fruits grow abundantly. The valley surrounding Columbia,
divided into small frnit and vegetable farms, will sustain a
large population.
Building material is plentiful lu the district. Lumber can
be procured at fair prices, aud brick lime and stone of good
quality can always be obtained when required.
The mining interests areof the first importance to this
eountry, aud will do much to build up Columbia. Large mineral lodes have been discovered throughout the mountains
adjacent to the city, and what were mere prospects a short
time since are now large paying mines.
The Granby smelter and converter—the most modern
and perfect plant of the kind In America—employing hundreds of men, is contiguous to the oity.
Owing to the fine climate, the central situation, the
beautible environments, the bright prospects for future
growth and prosperity, Columbia will be an educational
centre, a city of homes, as (well as a wholesale distributing
point; and when finally allied and wedded to her slater eity,
. wijlj^the, bejl^nd largest oity in [the Interior. IMPERIAL LIFE
In reviewing the list of prominent
Canadian life insurance companies,
the "Imperial" of Toronto stands
out prominently on account of its
remarkably, successful career. The
board of directors is composed of
strong financiers and gentlemen of
large experience in the insurance
business. This company nas nothing but up-to-date liberal policies to
sell, and the fact that many large
policies have been issued by the
Imperial, running as high as $200,-
000 on one single life, indicates the
class of people who are patrons of
this company. Mr. J. A. McCallum

A very rich strike has just been
made on the headwaters of the west
fork of tiie North Fork, about 90
miles from this city, by Frank
Fritz and C. W. Harrigan, who
have been out on a" prospecting
tour for some time for a local syndicate of six persons. This week the
men returned to the city, bringing
with them some rich specimens of
ore, from which the Granby smelter
gave returns of 590.4 ounces of silver
and about $30 copper per ton. The
ore was taken from a ledge that will
average two feet in width, and which
can be traced for over a thousand
feet. The property is a galena and
grey copper proposition, and the
owners say they have a true fissure
vein. Four claims were staked, and
it was for the purpose of having
these recorded that Messrs. Fritz
and Harrigan hastened back to the
city. A rush of prospectors will
probably be made to the „ new
grounds. Samples of the ore may be
seen in Geo. Fraser's window.
"Sandy" Campbell arrived in the
city Wednesday from Central camp,
where he has been doing development work on his claim. He brought
back with him a very fine sample of
peacock copper and gold bearing
rock.
A still further improvement in the
average value of the big shoot of ore
now being opened up on the 300-ft.
level of the Stemwinder mine by the
New Fairview corporation is reported. It is stated that the ore now
runs $11 per ton in gold, and that
this higher value appears to give
promise of continuing as depth is
made.
The steamer power plant lately
put in at the Emma mine, in Summit camp is now in operation, and
some nice looking copper ore is being stoped at the 75-foot level of the
mine for shipment to the Hall Mining & Smelting company's smelter
at Nelson, B. C.
It is reported that W. Work Slator,
of Edinburgh, Scotland, a director
of the Jewel Gold Mines, Limited,
who recently visited the Jewel mine,
situate about four miles from Eholt,
has since stated in Vancouver that
he had hopes of arranging a contract for snielting 30,000 to 40,000
tons of Jewel ore, and that J. D.
Kendall, M. E., the company's consulting engineer, has under consideration the advisability of putting
in a stamp mill and another plant
at the mine. During the current
year this mine has sent out some
2200 tons of gold quartz ore, the
bulk of which was shipped via Eholt
to the Granby company's smelter in
this city, where the quartz ore was
