Fourth Year.—No. 17
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, December 21, 1904
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
Spokane Capitalists Wish to
I   Purchase the Golden
Eagle Mine.
This Property. Shipped Some
I  Ore Four Years Ago,
; '■'■.* U1r»1dte Since.
Spokane capitalist! have made an
offer through i,- H. Fox, of that
city, fur the purchase of the Golden
Eagle mine, a high grade property
east bf Vblcanic'tafoiiniain, on the
NortH Fork of1 "Kettle river, ten
miles nortli of this city. Alex
Sharpe, of Vancouver, and 8. Moul-
ton Barrett, of. Greenwood, are interested with Fox, iq the deal aa
venders.
The Golden Eagle has been developed to a stage which will allow
steady shipment's. The main shaft
is down 102 feet, and there are a
nuniher of drifts. Four years ago
the Golden Eagle shipped #30 ore,
then, when the slump came in the
Boundary, it was closed down and
has so remained. The Spokane men
contemplate reopening it?'""
An interesting incident is recorded in connection with the meeting
of Fox and Barrett to discuss the
Spokane proposal. About a year
ago the former hud the peculiar sen
sation of reading his obituary in the
press. Mr. Barrett had not seen
him since that time, and congratulated him on his resurrecting Mr.
Barrett himself, in the Greenwood
Times a year ago, paid»:$it»JCox,a'
high tribute, believing him dead.
The Oro Denoro mine iB producing a lot of excellent ore in the big
quarry, where the ore body is 80
feet wide and has been traced on
the surface within 50 feet of the
other quarry, indicating that the two
quarries are probably on the same
big ore body. Shipments have
been curtailed at both tbe Oro Denoro and Emma minis' for want of
ore cars. The C.P.R.Ordered months
ago a large number of ore cars, but
these( have not yet beert received,
though expected in a few weeks.
The tunnel to Up the magnetic vein
on the Oro Denoro is now in ore,
il.id this week will be under a big
open cut 40 feet long and 12 feet
deep in good ore, to which an upraise is to be made, when the ore
will be glory-holed and the output
easily doubled as soon as thc cars
are available. Mr. K. L. Burnet,
P.L.S., last week made accurate
surveys of all the workings and ore
exposures preliminary to making a
plan of the same for tho company
and its shareholders. Tdis plan will
show that large areas aggregating
acres of the surface of the claim are
all ore, while it is known that other
areas, so far undeveloped, are likely
to show large ore bodies with exploration. The development work
has for some time been in charge of
S. L. Graham, foreman, and has
been well done. The dry season
has curtailed the water supply so
that the power plant has been shut
down occasionally, but this difficulty is now being overcome by a
well and a short pipe line to an additional rivulet.   Taken in all, thc
mining outlook at Denoro was nevef
better, and a most hopeful tone is
manifest, which is likely to'lie made
more so by the big B. C: mine bftr
ing re-oped in the near future.
The new fifteen-drill air compressor is expected to be working at*
the Brooklyn mine in aiibther week
or ten days.
Shipments of, ore from the Rawhide mine, which were commenced
last week, are gradually being increased to 500 tons per day.
Word has been received that the
Phoenix Gold and Copper Mining
company has acquired the Nellie
Cotton and Mystic claims, adjoining
the Granby mines at Phoenix, and
development will be started at an
early date. Some $5,000 has already
been spent on these properties.
A second shipment of second-class
ore iB being prepared for sending out
from the Skylark mine, making the
fourth shipment since operations
commenced on the property.
The Granby mines now have an
underground telephone system  for
the convenience of its empUWees.
- %  .
\if'< '-■
The Greenwood smelter was'cold a
couple of days last week on account
of the locomotive on the slag railway
being out of commission.
Never in its history has the C.P.R.
sent out more cars of ore from Phoenix than it is doing now, the present
daily average being about 70 cars.
' It will probably be the 1st of February hefore ore shipments are
started from the Granby mines over
the Phoenix blanch of the Great
Northern.
Ten blast furnaces are now in
operation in the three Bounnary
smelters—six at the Granby, two at
the B. C. Copper, and two at the
Montreal & Boston.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
The Federal Labor union will elect
their officers tomorrow for the ensuing year. The polls open at 1 o'clock
iti their rooms in Morrison  block.
C. N. Schreibcr, a Granby Bmelter-
man, went down to Orient, Wash.,
and spent a few days last week with
his friends there.
Engineer DeWitt, of the Great
Northern surveyors putting in tho
bridges near Phoenix, spent Christmas in Grand Forks.
The cose of Joseph Bell, under
sentenae of execution at Kamloops
on Januaiy 13th, was up before thc
cabinet council at Ottawa on Saturday. It will be wnembered that
Bell was convicted of murder for
killing a woman of the town at Phoenix last July, and in view of the
judge's report and the man's record
in the United States, there is not
much doubt that Bell will pay the
penalty for his crime.
Everything points to railway con
struction west of Midway in the
spring. Despite the lateness of the
season the Great Northern surveyors
are still in the field. They are now
making the location survey, working east from Oro towards Midway.
Presbyterian Sunday School
Entertainment Best
Ever Given.
Pilfered an Overcoat, Gets
His Winter's Board and  \
Lodging Free.
The Christinas tree and entertainment given hy the Knox Presbyterian church Sunday school in the
Grand ForkB opera house last Friday evening waB largely attended
and proved an   unqualified  success.
The cantata, "Christmas   With the
i'    Up ■■' v
Pixies," was faultlessly rendered by
the little ones, and greatly appreciated by the audience. Miss Alma
Sloper earned merited applanse for
htr portrayal of the character of
Lena, and for her sweet singing.
The doll drill was a pleasing feature
of the evening. The manner in
which st was executed demonstrated
that the little performers had been
carefully trained by Miss Eflie Rosa.
This act was heartily applauded.
Miss Marjorie Kerman's violin solo
was highly appreciated by all present, and 6he was compelled to respond to an encore Rev. J. R.
Robertson enacted the role of Santa
ClauB to the entire satisfaction of
every child in the hall, as none were
forgotten. He even handed out
the lost Bonndary ballot box, which
was addressed to D. D. Munro. It
bore the following inscription:
"Once I was lost, but now I have
been found." It is understood that
Mr. Munro intends to run for alderman in the city election, and will
use his own private ballot box.
Taken as whole, it is difficult to see
how the entertainment could have
been improved upon, and too much
praise cannot be given the direc
treses for the perfect manner i
which the children had been trained
Jack Kane, who Btole an overcoat
valued at $20 in from of Clark &
Son's store last Thursday, was captured by the West ward policeman
on Satujday at the Queen's hotel,
while he was endeavoring to
dispone ot Mb plunder. At the trial
later in thc day, Kane was found
guilty and sentenced to three
months' imprisonment in the Nelson Jail, Chief of Police Sheads
left for that city yesterday evening
with thc prisoner.
R. B. Kerr has resigned his position aB city solicitor of I'hoenix, to
take effect December .'11. On account of his wife's ill health, Mr.
Kerr will shortly take her to California. Mr. Kerr has bech Phoenix's ' legal adviser since that eity
was incorporated, four years ago.
A dividend of 5 per cent, amounting to $'2000, was] recently declared
by the Phoenix Electric Light com-
pauy.
The new schedule just issued by
the Great Northern layB coke from
Fernie at the door of the Northport
smelter for $2 per ton, a cut of over
50 cents of the former price paid by
that refinery. This cut is made
possible by  the Great Northern's
dinct connection with Fernie, thus
avoiding the necessity of paying 90
cents per ton duty and securing better transportation rates.
Mrs. Edna Abbott, late of Pnoe-
nix, waB married recently at Coleman, Alta., to M. C. Davidson, formerly of this city.
Duncan Robb, M.P., last week received from Daniel O'Hara, returning officer, a certificate of his election

Some high grade ore from the
Park City section is now being hauled
to the Kettle Valley yards in Republic, where is being loaded and
will be shipped to the Gianby smelter. This ore, it is claimed, will
average over $300 per ton, and is the
first .to be shipped from that mineral
district, which from the present outlook has a very promising future.

Skating Opened for Season
With Good Attendance
of Enthusiasts.
Hockey Players  Preparing
for Active Season
of Sport.
The skating rink was opened to
the public on Saturday night, when
many skaters enjoyed their first slide
of the season. On Christmas Day
there was a large attendance, and tHc
rink promises to be a popular place
of amusement during the winter. A
gramophone which rendered popular
airs, will be a regular feature at the
rink, and W. H. Itter has sent east
for a supply of waltz music for the
machine to provide BkaterB with the
proper accompanying music. The
one waiting room has been found too
small for the crowd attending, and
a new one for the exclusive use of
ladies will immediately be erected,
adjoining the present one and on a
level with the ice surface, for better
convenience of ladies. The hours
for skating will be strictly enforced,
2:30 to 5 p.m. every day except Sun-
dayf'S to 10 p.m., except the three
hockey nights, when the hours will
be fifteen minutes later.
Ths hockey boys had their first
practice game Christmas afternoon,
which was more Btrenuous than artistic. Practices will begin tomorrow
night with the idea of getting a
strong team together. Correspondence is being carried on with Phoenix
for a game here on New Year's, but
definite arrangements have not yet
been concluded.
Jack Farrell and Bert Sloper, with
the Great Northern survey crew near
Phoenix, spent Christmas at their
homes in this city. They will finish
their labors about New Year's, and
will then return to Grand Forks for
the winter, when they will both get
out and hiiBtle for a place on the
local hockey team.

The Grand Trunk Pacific railway
has just awarded a contract to the
Canada Car company for part of its
rolling stoek. Fifteen cars are to be
delivered daily for five years, which
makes a total of,23,475 cars. This
will give people some idea of the
magnitude of this new transcontinental line.
The name of nearly every business
man in the city is now being coupled
in connection with the aldermanic
contest; but wheir" nomination day
arrives it is quite possible that the
list will dwindle down to two in

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1904
During the recent election campaign The News-Gazette was very
blatant in its assertion that "even if
Duncan Ross were elected he could
not secure any patronage for Grand
Forks, and that this city didn't need
anything from the government anyway" ; but in his last edition the
N.J G. editor thoughtlessly contradicts himself when he says : "Grand
Forks wants a $10,000custom house
and post office, and this could undoubtedly be arranged by Mr. Ross
if he so desires." It's good guessing
the wants of Grand Forks from the
hands of the Dominion government
will emanate from some more representative and stable source than the
editorial mind of the wabbling News-
Gazette, whoso influence would cut
less figure with the Dominion government than it does with the people
of Grand Forks, in face of the fact it
stood ready to support either party
at thc recent election, nnd didn't tin-
ally decide until the Liberal party
squelched it, and of necessity either
had to support the Liberals or keep
silent. But in that particular case it
was the opposite of silence is golden,
so it supported the Conservative candidate, so strongly, in fact, that he
was defeated.
Negotiations are said to be under
way for merging the Royal Bank of
Canada with 83,000,000 capital and
the Merchants' Bank of Canada with
$6,000,000. The latter institution
has for yeara been the financial backer of the old Grand Trunk railway,
and it is with the idea of entering
into financial relations with the new-
Pacific line that the amalgamation
and consequent increased capitalization iB contemplated.
south of Grand Forks, which should
not cause much inconvenience to Ihe
two or three residents of that place.
The I'hoenix Pioneer seems to be
satisfied because "Ross's majority is
only Mil." That's one of the attractions of running an "independent" sheet—no matter which party
is elected it's satisfactory, which also
leaves an unexpressed hope for patronage from both.
A Victori". dispatch says that the
Provincial legislature will meet on
February 2nd, and that the three
Socialists will combine with the Liberals curly in the session to defeat the
government, which would mean another election at an early daie, and
the certain return of a Liberal government and a progressive policy for
this Province.
The lack of interest in the approaching municipal election is a
tribute to the present administration.

THE HAN WHO WORKS HARD
Perseverance and will-] ower he must
have, but'whether he-has strength and
vigor iH another consideration. Hard
working men usually have irritable
nerves and should fortify their systems with a course of Frrrozone. a
tonic that rebnilds and revitalizes beyond all telling. It's just wonderful
the strength tiiat Ferrozone imparts to
broken down men. It forms new
blood, supplies the system with abundant nourishment, and where formerly
there was tiredness and lassitude, Ferrozone establishes a reserve of energy
and vim. Try Ferrozone—price 50c
