An Important Deal
The Granby Company Acquires the
Senator and Fremont.
A Force of Men Will be Set to Work Opening Up a Glory
Hole—Shipments to the Smelter Will be Commenced at an Early Date.
One of the most important rnin-1
ing deals made in the Boundary
district recently was consummated
tbis week. By tbe deal the Granby
Consolidated company acquired a
bond on two of the most promising
mining properties situated in Summit camp, namely, the Senator and
Fremont. The owners, who are also
the original locators, are Chris Tn-
biason and Henry Huffman, both
early pioneers and prospectors of
tbis section. For the past four years
"they have done considerable development work on these two proper-
lies, and the showing recently made
was so good that it attracted the attention of the Granby Smelter
company, with the result that negotiations were commenced with a
view of acquiring the properties, and
this week papers were signed giving
tbe smelter eompany a bond.   The
amount involved is 835,000, and
the agreement calls for immediate
work to be commenced on tbe claims,
which will be done by starting a
force of men at once on a glory hole,
and shipments will be made in the
near future to tho smelter. This
speaks well for the camp in which
these properties are located, as the
Granby company's operations are
generally very successful, and will
no doubt prove so in tbis instance.
Other mines in the vicinity arc
the Rathmullen group, owned by the
Kathmullcn Mining company company, and the O. P., owned by the
Summit Gold & Copper Mining
company, both of whioh are promising properties.
Several other important mining
deals are under way, which goes to
show that the mining industry in
the Boundary district is reviving,
and in a short time will be booming.

i The line 1b used by that very progressive young manager, Elmer Walters,
[in gaining publicity and incidentally
dollars for his newest attraction, "A
i Millionaire Tramp." In this production Mr, Walters lias made u long
stride to the front, for in thin play lie
has succeeded in retaining all the elements of quick action and broad
comedy so dear to tin; hearts of the
masses, and eliminated the impossible
bombastic dramatic situations that
have ho far characterized this class of
an attraction. The finale of "A
Millionaire Tramp" is without doubt
one of the most beautiful dramatic
endings ever given to any play, not a
word being spoken for at least five
minutes before thc last curtain. At
the Biden opera house, Saturday evening, Oct. 2-1 th.
Wellington camp is shipping an
average of nearly two cars of ore per
day, tbe ore all going to the Boundary Falls smelter, and coining from
the Athelstan, the Winnipeg and
the Jackpot.
Louis W. Hill, president of the
S. F. & N. railway, arrived in the

statement was given out concerning
railway construction at tbis point.
it it understood that his trip to Republic was in connection with the
building of the Washington & Great
Northern from Wenatchee to Republic, which is to be constructed
this fall.

Fine Gold and Silver Now Being Produced at the Trail
Smelter—The Drill Compressor Plant at the
Oro Denoro Nearly Finished.
Jay P. (iraves, .general manager
of the Granby company, returned to
Spokane Wenesday from atrip cast.
Tbe Spokesman-Review quotes Mr.
Graves as saying that the Granby
company will probably declare a
quarterly dividend of 1 per cent,
aggregating about 8133,000, before
the first of the year.
Not only line silver, but fine gold
also, is being produced at the new
refinery at the Trail smelter, and
shipments up to date include 5000
ounces of silver, 999 line, and 1000
ounces of gold, 995 fine. The output marks the first refining of precious metals on a commercial scale
in Canada. Ever since the Trail
plant put in its lead refinery, to get
the benefit of tbe refining bonus of
So a ton granted by the fed ral government, pig lead has been produced
at the Kootenay plant. The silver
slimes, however, including gold, silver, copper, antimony and arsenic,
were sent to the United States refineries to be extracted. As there
were no plants in operation adapted
to handle those slimes, which differ
somewhat from the slhnes produced
by electrolytic copper rcfining,it was
decided to put up a special plant at
Trail, which is now in successful
operation. In addition the plant
later will probably turn out meUil-
lic antimony, suitable for use in the
arts. Tbe Kootenay papers are demanding tbat the federal government should take steps towards
purchasing.the fine gold at tbe point
where produced. The shipments of
silver were made to the Philippines
via San Francisco, and the line gold
was sold to the United States assay
office at Seattle.
Half of tbe cutting out of tbe
right of way for the now electric
line from Phoenix to  Greenwood   is
completed by Contractor 1). P. Barber, and tbe men are working on
the lower half  towards  Greenwood.
Reports from the Providcnccniinc,
near Greenwood, toll ofthe discovery
of a parallel lead twelve inches
wide, with eight inches of solid high
grade ore. The strike was made al
a depth of 175 feet.
The Quilp nunc at Republic has |
struck some of the richest ore ever
found in Eureka gulch, and a full
face runs nearly 81100. Thc strike
bas aroused discussion on the mine.
Comparison of tne relative depth of
exploration and development is the
burden of conversation among the
old-time miners, who deplore the
lifeless condition of a properly tbat
bas paid over a half million dollars
in dividends and have faith that
deeper down there is as much ore
and as rich as was ever found in the
levels above. Tbey take the ground
that the marks of striation and attrition on the vein are vertical or
nearly so; that the ore body terminates 12 feet below the No. 4 tunnel lead in a sharp wedge, and tbat
these are signs that go to show that
it has simply been cut off and that
thc lower portion may be found by
prospecting deeper for it.
J. Cuthbert Welch, formerly chief
chemist and assayer at the Trail
smelter during thc Heinze and Canadian Pacific regimes, ami latterly
superintendent at thc Montreal &
Boston Copper company's plant at
Boundary Falls, has been appointed
superintendent of the Northport
smelter and has assumed his new
office at the plant.
At tbe Oro Denoro mine work is
progressing favorably on tbe seven
drill compressor plant, and the machines will probably be in operation
in a week. Shipments of ore are to
increased at once.
While new cylinders to take the
place of those which exploded a few
weeks ago in tbe ISO-drill (iranby
compressor are on tbe way from
Sherbrooke, Que., thc old steam
plant is being utilized at tin: coin-
pan's properties in Phoenix.
Shipments from the Snowshoe
have fallen off and the force at   the
mine bas been somewhat reduced,
because tbe smelter could not use
(plite as much ore.
At a meeting held in Victoria
last Monday night tho members-elect
of tbe Liberal party went into the
fiscal question, and a committee
was appointed to go exhaustively
into the subject independent of government reports, and prcparo a
memorial for the information of the
members before the meeting of tbe
bouse. A committee was also appointed to look after live-election
matters and decide what seats
should be protested, and arrange for
lighting those which are opened for
the return of ministers. A bumper
rally of Liberals tbe same evening
pledged   the   new  leader, James A.
Macdonald, enthusiastic support,
amid cheers. Mr. McDonald made
a neat, telling speech in reply to tbe
ovation tendered him. W. W. B.
Midlines and Stuart Henderson tendered Mr. Macdonald tbeir hearty
support, and Messrs. Oliver, King,
Wells and others followed in a similar strain.

The McBride government is making a desperate effort to find a scat
for Attorney-General MoPhillips.
The latest report is that McDonald,
of Lillooet, may resign to open tho
constituency for MoPhillips. Tatlow
went to Ashcroft last week to see
McDonald, who afterwards visited
the Conservative organizer, at Kamloops. The Tories consider Lillooet
a safe Conservative scat, but if an attempt is made to carry out this
program a hot light will be put up

ihe D-'Sj ot ol Vienna.
The citizen of Vienna who dot*
not wlrJi to be out of pocket muit
keep early hours, for after ten
o'clock he fa taxed on entering hlJ
own house, or, for the mutter of that,
any house. The "sperrgeld," or door-
opening tax, la peculiar to Vienna, hj
ihe London "Express" explains. The
■/Mire population of that city, num-
berlng nearly two millions, are practically imprisoned In their houses from
ten o'clock In the evening: until six
the next morning-. *"hey can go In or
out only by paying Jit leasti four cents
Lo the Janitor or house-master," as
lie is called.
Vienna Is built on the* "flat" or apart-
nent-house plan. Millionaires and
working people alike live in houses of
this description. The houses are large,
having five or six floors, with four flats
on a floor, so that It Is not unusual to
find a hundred persons living under
one roof. There Is one common entrance from the street, and after ten
o'clock at night this door is bolted and
barred. From ten until twelve nil who
go in or out must pay four cents. After twelve the charge Is doubled.
The tax must be p.iid every time one
passes through the doorway, without
exception. If a man has occasion to
go In and out half a dozen times, he
must pay every time. One who has
dined with a friend must, if he stay
late, pay four cents to get out of his
friend's house, and four more to get
Into his own. A telegram In the night
necessitates the payment of the tax
before the boy can enter.
The house-master also collects and
keeps duplicate copies of the forms on
which every Individual la the house
must report to the police his age,
birthplace and religion, his exact occupation, and other personal details
which the Austrian authorities Insist
upon knowing. Nor does the power of
-.his Important personage end even
here. From the little guard-room
which he occupies at the foot of the
stairs he sees every one who goes in
or out. lie ascertains with amazing
accuracy the umount of each tenant's
income, the events of his family life,
nnd the character of his visitors. His
far-reaching power enables him to terrorize every servant in the house Into
jnterlng his intelligence department,
and thus he spies on the Innermost
life of the subjects In his flvo-storey
In some cases the house-master Is
more powerful than In others. An
Bngltlh resident was obliged to move
from an apartment that tie particularly liked because he could not ven-
ure to speak With any degree of
sharpness to the man ut the door, even
when the man was remiss in his duties. The flat was owned by a railway belonging to the State. This made
the house-master a State official, an
Insult to whom Is a very serious offence in Vienna. A reprimand for delaying letters would be construed Into
in insult, and the Englishman deemed
It wise to move to other quarters.
Thousnnds of people In Vienna live
In such tenor of the house-master
that, It Is said, they never make an
apple-bart without giving him half.

At a Portuguese Bull-Fight
IT was io he a very great event--
twelve bulla were to make their
entry, and some famous Spanish
bull-fighters were lo prove their
prowess, and the King was to be
there, and Portugal's handsome Queen.
Out along1 the white, dusty roads, on
past the outskirts of the town wher«
olives nnd fig-trees peeped over the
etone walls, and occasional palms
reared their tall stems—all hurry, rush
and bustle, until at last the open dusty
plain was reached, and before us, like
a modern Coliseum, rose the great,
massive arena of the null ning.
How like the Colls'urn, though, In
weak architecture, was the building;
and all the mass of sightseers pressing
on to their different corridors—the poor
to the sunny side, the richer to that in
Inside were the great arcades under
the arches, and the wide flights of steps
to the various Hers of seats or rows of
Up we went to where our ticket told
me was the f3uteuil allotted to u?
(No. 106, first "fila"), a good position
we saw as we entered the tier, and at
a "coup d'oeli" the whole vast arena
was before us. Beneath was the level
ring where T-qvo would appear; on oui
left the King's box, a Mauresque canopy In blue and gold, and draped In red
and gold velvet. On our right and left,
on this shi;dy side of the arena, the
boxes are hung with bright draperies
of blue, gray, and yellow, setting off
the gay dresses of the ladles fanning
themselves In the boxes with tiny little
Portuguese fans.
At last a roar goes up from some 16,-
000 throats—the arena will hold 20,»UQ,
but It Is not packed—and then exactly
opposite us enter all the toreadors—that
is, all who take part in the fight. Ca-
vallleros (or picadors, as the Spanish
call them), bandarllhehos, furcados.
and the assistants dressed In rich Georgian costume—in *ed and blue satin
and velvet, with plumed flat hats.
Two   cavaliers   mounted   upon   two
magnificent steeds,    very    unlike   the
wretched animals ridden into the ring
to be slaughtered at a Spanish bullfight;   a  dozen   bandarilhelrus   and   a
dozen furcados and the assistants, all
In their gay costumes, make a brilliant
show on ihe smooth, arena.   The crash
of music, the roar of the populace, and
the brilliant spectacle send the Portuguese blood to fever heat; and quickly,
after salutations to the King or President, all the toreadors retire and one
horseman  enters   alone.    A  signal  Is
given, the doors are thrown open, and
In  rushes a fine  black bull.    Like an
arrow he makes for the horseman, who
leaps aside; but Toro Is after him, and
•hastes him round  the ring.    With a
left movement, just as the bull's horn:
early   reach   the   horse's   flanks,   the
avaller swerves and plants a dart In
ie bull's shoulders! the matadors rush
i,  and    distract  the bull's    aitteAtiOl.
1th   their   red   cloaks.    The   bull   no
•:iger cares for horse or man; the red
tg Is his enemy, and he goes for It,
nd tosses and paws It and tramples or,
t until it is snatched from him, and a
landnrUhelro     stands     before     him,
/atches  him;   and  leaps  aside  when
roro tries to toss him.
At last, maddened, the bull rushes at
lis tormentor, who races to the barter of the arena, but halts there; and
it the moment the bull's horns seem
o touch him, plants his two decorated
larts well In the bull's shoulders and
leaps the barrier. But the bull leaps
.fter him—half his black body is over;
ome of the assistants leap into the
irena at the safest side; but Toro fails
ud falls back Inside tne arena, to start
o his feet again and tush for the mata-
lors, who advance with their cloaks to
draw him toward them.
It Is these red cloaks that prove how
lull is Toro In his rage. The matador
.olds the red cloak at arm's length, the
tult rushes at It—never at the man
ioldlng it—and the matadors pass the
'■loak over his head as he strives to gore
it; the bull turns and goes for it again,
seemingly oblivious that a man Is mov-
ng it. Very agile and dexterous are
the matadors; but there seems no dan
tfer to them, so wholly Is the buU occupied with the cloak.
Not so the bandar ilhelros. To face t
rushing bull even with padded horm
until his hot breath is in your face, am
his horns lowered for the toss; to plan
darts .scarcely two feet long In hi:
shoulders, and leap aside ere the tosi
Is given, Is a feat of courage, greai
swiftness and agility; and mighty Is tht
shout from the vast crowd when thl-
is done deftly and neatly, and the barb*
-tick well in the bull's tough hide. At-
the bulls get tired out with their tormentors, a group of eight or ten tamt
bulls, with long tube-dike bells, are lei
Into the arena. These encircle the wild
bull that at once la tamed; nnd these
trained bulls trot him out of the circle
to his den, and a fresh bull Is then Introduced.—James Baker In "Alnslee'F

"The Boofe Booster."
A VACANT niche In contemporary
periodical literature, says the
"Literary Direst," Is filled toy th«
'Book Booster," which is edited fcjf
"Mr. Crltlcus Flub-Pubbe," and published by "Josh, Onsh & Co.," lm Evana-
ton, 111. Tts purpose, as It Is careful to
Inform the reader on Its first pag-e, is
to "boost books—our own and others,"
with the distinction that "the books
published by Josh, Gosh A Co. will be
boosted without reference to the number of pounds sold, while the publications of other houses will Tie boosted
only when they have passed the dead
line, which Is fifty thousand pounds."
The bonk boosted In this particular
Issue Is "Fagots oft Empire," by Mls^
Bertha Bosh. "Miss Bosh," we are told
from the "Editor's Pocking Chair," "Is
only fifteen years old, but Is extremely
bright for her age. She Is a Chicago
girl, and has never traveled farther
than Oconomowoc, which makes her
llternry feat all the more remarkable.
For 'Faggots of Empire* Is a story of
the reign of Charlemagne, and the author betrays a singular acquaintance
with the local color of those times." Indeed, her narrative "contains more
facts than the histories."   Moreover:
"The cloth used In binding the first
edition would. If stretched end to end,
reach from Chicago to Evanston.
Placed side t>y side the pages would
reach from Chicago to Minneapolis.
Smeared thinly, the Ink used would
cover four townships. Ten million cockroaches could subsist for six months on
the binder's paste employed. Set up
side by side, the Individual letters In
the text would reach from San Francisco to the Hawaiian Islands. And
the hot air employed In boosting the
book would float ten thousand balloons."
Another Interesting literary announcement Is made to the effect that
"Josh, Gosh & Co. have been appointed
Western selling agents for the forthcoming book of Mr. Ei-nest Thompson-
Seton (formerly Scton - Thompson),
which Is to be titled 'Cheap Thompsons
I Have Known.' " The "Book Booster"
is replete with touching poems and
thrilling serials, and "The Stovepipe of
Navarre," a blood-curdling "Romance
of Sword and Cloak," by Miss Poeta
Pants, quite puts In the shade all current literary efforts along the same
What Did the Fakir Do?
T "w T0NDERFUIj stories nre told
III of the powers of the Hindu
I.  I    I    fakirs.   Careful attention to
VJ^X their tricks has not discovered their secret witfc
any certainty, but Captain James Par
ker, the English traveler, who has just
returned from a tour of India, gives It
is his belief that hypnotism Is tho
means by which they accomplish their
moat startling Illusions. One Incident
which he describes seems to bear out
his view.
The trick which Is acknowledged to
he the greatest of these Hindu mystic
performances, says Captain Parker,
and the one that has been described
by trustworthy persons too often to be
doubted, is the one In which the fakir
throws a ball of twine into the air
ibove him, until It disappears from
sigiht. The loose end of the string he
holds In his hand, and after the boy
assistant has climbed up the string until he. too, Is out of sight, the fakir
himself follows, with a knife between
his teeth.
The spectators, surprised when both
boy and man climb out of sight, are
horrified when the boy's severed head,
urns and legs, followed by the trunk,
fall to the ground, and the man slides
down close behind. Their astonishment
i- . ■■<< ii*n th'- I'uklr gathers the
severed members and restores the boy
to life.
Well, I saw this performance once,
nid once I didn't see It; and the latter
experience was more wonderful than
the other, I had some London friends
visiting me, and after having left them
for a few minutes on the veranda of
my bungalow, I saw, as I was returning, the same fakir and his assistant,
whom I had seen perform the trick,
standing about forty feet In front of
my friends, apparently preparing to
beg-In a performance. As I was about
as far behind the natives as my friends
were In front of them, and had not
been observed, I stood quietly where I
The man placed a drawn knife between his teeth, took the Usual ball of
twine In his right hand, made a motion
as If throwing It into the air, and
then stood perfectly quiet. My friends
on the veranda were looking into the
upper air with astonishment on their
faces, which In a minute turned to a
look of horror as their eyes came back
to the ground. In another minute their
countenances lighted up with pleasure,,
and they applauded roundly.
They could not Bay enough about the
wonderful performance they had seen,
and they were astonished beyond measure when I told them I had been as
n«?ar the fakir as they, and had seen
nothing of what had so wonderfully
impressed them.
If that was not hypnotism, what was

—excellence of the work nnd promptness in

time is not good service; but the two combine to
