Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, October 7, 1904
ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
Granby   Office  in   Montreal
Will Be Closed--Yankees
Now in Saddle.
The New  Directorate  Contains the Name  of but
One Canadian.
Jay P. Graves, in an interview in
Hoston last week, stated that some
surprises would develop at the annual meeting of the Granby shareholders, held in Montreal last Tuesday, ind it now appears that he
gave a correct forecast. The most
agieeahle surprise to the people of
this city sprung at the meeting is
the announcement that the general
ofiices of the company are to be
moved from Montreal to Grand
Forks. This wi'l give our city additional prestige abroad, besides increasing the office staff here, and
consequently putting more of the
big company's earnings in circulation in this city for olliee help and
supplies. Thc story of the meeting
is told in the following dispatch
from Montreal:
The Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Company, Ltd.,
organized by Jay P. Graves of Spokane, and operating in the Boundary district of British Columbia,
has become an American concern,
and the headquarters ut Montreal
will be closed.
Every Canadian director but one
has retired from the board, and
while 950,000 shares have gone
across the line, 380,000 remain in
Canadian hands. It appears, however, that rumors crediting James
J. Hill with getting control are without confirmation. Thc masters of the
situation seem to be in Boston and
New York. S. H. C. Miner, thc retiring president, in addressing the
shareholders, said: "It is now seven
years since I became identified wfth
the property. These seven years
have been years of very serious
work, and the progress which the
company bus made has been secured
only by our management with much
difficulty. I ask that my name be
not put up for renomination to the
tlirectorate. I am, however, one of
the very largest shareholders in the
company, notwithstanding reports
to the contrary. I have good faith in
the property if well managed and
shall always have a deep interest in
and best wishes for its succcbs."
The new board of directors is:
John Stanton, president of thc Wolverine Copper Mining company anil
the Mohawk Mining company; William H. Nichols, president of the
General Chemical company and the
Nichols Chemical company; J.
Langcloth, president of the American Metal Selling Company, Limited, and George Martin Luther,
secretary of tho Nichols Chemical
company; George F. Diker, Jr., First
National bank of New York; W,
Payne Whitney, capitalist (all the
foregoing aro of New York); W. II.
Robinson, manager Eastern Townships bank, Quebec; Jay P. Graves,
president Spokane Traction company, Spokane; A. L. White, vice-
president  Spokane  Traction   com
pany, Spokane, and George Crawford Clark, of Clark, Dodge & Co.;
H. J. Higginson, of Lee, Higginson
& Co.; Arthur C. Junes, of Phelps,
Dodge & Co., all of Boston, and
George Baker.
The retiring directors are: S. H.
C. Miner, A. C. Flumerfelt, Payette
Brown, J. H. McKechnie, all Canadians, and C. S. Houghton of Boston.
It was decided to change the location oh the head office to Grand
Forks, and to transfer the business
done-ill Montreal in the past year to
New York.
The annual report showed that
the amount received for production
for the year wns 82,948,551 and from
rents and land sales $17,795, or a
total of $2,9116,347. Against this
there was working expenses of
81,814,216 and the cost of foreign
ore and matter, $808,619, making a
total of $2,682,833, leaving net
profits for the year, $283,000,which,
with thc previous year's surplus
made a total of 8967,067. Out of
this dividends were paid last December.
CANADA'S FAVORITE ACTOR
Mr. Harold Nelson and His Spectacular
Production of "Heart and Sword."
Last Benson Mr. Harold Nelson,
Canada's favorite actor, stepped out
of Shakespearean roles to give western theatre goers that fine production
of the religious drama, "Quo Vadis,"
which is still readied with pleasure.
This ye:ir he further manifests his
versatility by entering the field of romantic comedy, coming to us for
two nights, opening October 14 with
an elaborate presentation of ''Heart
and Sword." His manager, Mr. C.
P. Walker, has provided him for
effective portrayal of this charmingly picturesque play with scenery,
costuming and other expensive
equipment, thc richness of which
will he a delightful surprise to our
theatregoers. Mr. Nelson brings n
stronger company than he has yet
had fn his support, having retained
thc most capable members of last
year's organization, augmented by
others of experience and ability.
SUNSET   SUANTERINGS
T. Caporn, who has been doing
development work on his Selene
claim, located on Hardy mountain,
a short distance west of this city,
during the past three or four months,
brought down some good looking ore
last Tuesday. It is expected that it
will assay ubout 830 to the ton.

but still has a sullicient quantity of
both of these staple articles to supply the local market.

John Nelson Dies From the
Effects of an Overdose of
That Drug.
Coroner's Jury Unable to Decide Whether Taken Intentionally or Not.
John Nelson, in charge of a United
States geological and coast survey
party of ten men, died nt the Cottage
hospital shortly after .1 o'clock last
Wednesday afternoon from an overdose of chloral, taken while under
the influence of liquor. Deceased wain the habit of going on periodical
sprees, this being the second time
he had been brought lo the hospital for treatment for nervous prostration, brought on by too freely im-
bidingofthe flowing bowl, On th-
Inst occasion he had been drinking
heavily for two or three weeks, and
on Tuesday Dr. Kingston sent him
lo the hospital, and prescribed a
nerve sedative containing chloral.
This medicine wus administered to
him that day as directed, and Wed
oesday morning the man appeared
to be iii fair way toward complete
recovery. But shortly before 1
o'clok on that div, while not tinder
tin surveillance of thc nurses, he
managed to enter the room where
the medicine was kept, and drank
half the contents of Ihe bottle. Thc
fact that the mnn had taken an
overdose of the drug was discovered
hy a nurse immediately after the occurrence, and Dr. Kingston wns sum
moned. The doctor arrived at the
hospital promptly, nnd wns followed
a few moments later by Dr. Northrop. The doctois used the stomach
pump freely, adininisteie.l all known
antidotes, nnd otherwise labored
over the patient to keep up the circulation, but without effect, and he
expired at 3:30 o'clock, or exactly
two and one-half hours after he hnd
tnken the fatal dose.
A coroner's inquest was held over
the remains the same evening. The
[acts being laid before the jury, n decision wus arrived at that the mnn
had died- from chloral poison administered by his own hand, but into wt.ether he had taken thc medicine with suicidal intent or hail unwittingly taken an overdose they
were unable to determine. The
jury attached no blame to anyone
connected with the hospital, but
found that the necessary precaution
of keeping the drug ill a separate
room from that occupied by the
patient had been tnken.
The remains will he shipped to
Washington, D. C ,  for interment.
Mr. Nelson was a man ot exceptional ability, nnd was very highly
esteemed by the head of the department in which he wascinployed.and
his services were greatly valued by
his government. He was also a man
of a good family, and leaves a
brother in the postoffice department
at Washington, 1». C. The survey
party of which he was the head has
been working between Laurier and
the Cascade mountains during the
past summer repairing monument*
and more clearly delinihg the international boundary.
The Shirley Company
What promises to be the dramatic
triumph of the Shirley company's
engagement in Grand Forks will be
he performance of "Camille" Saturday, October 8. Here is a play
that is too well known to require any
introduction to thc theatre goers of
this community as it has been a favorite for the past fifty years, and
the story has been read in almost
every household, but in spite of its
age it still retains its place in popular favor, and is as interesting today
as it was upon the occasion of its
first production half a century ago.
The story of the struggle between
love and duty and the renunciation
of the lover at the cost of hear happiness appeals to the heart, and anyone with feeling cannot but pity the
girl, who only asks the right to be
happy foi the few remaining months
of her life. Miss Shirley, who plays
thc title role, will wear during this
performance some stunning robes,
thc majority of which are imported,
and will he sure to delinght the
ladies. A great dramatic treat is in
store for those who attend this per
i'oriuaiiee Saturday night.
A SULPHUROUS INFERNO
One of the Realistic Scenes in Harold
Nelson's Production of "Faust."
Prime factors in the beauty and
impressiveness of Mr. Harold Nelson's production of "Faust" are the
elaborate scenery and beautiful elci..
trical eflecls, together with a vividly
ealistie piohtrc of a flamim/, sulphurous inferno. This great picture
is sure to live long in memory. It
is by all odds the most ambitious
bit of stage realism ever attemptt d
in fie theatres of western Cannde.
It is made possible by carrying expert electrioians, a complete electri-
al equipment, and by a lil end expenditure of money. Mr. C. P.
Walker, Mr. Nelson's manager, determined to take advantage of the
spectacular opportunities -offered
in this great religious drama to
make "Faust" even more notable in
the way of realism than "Quo
Vadis" and other fine productions.
That he has faithfully carried this
out will be acknowledged by all
who witness the "Faust" performance, which will be given the second
night of his engagement here.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1904
Aid. McNee1 s proposed bylaw,
changing or abolishing the wards of
the city, is being freely discussed in
public places. Until the scope of
the contemplated nrdinoncc is more
fully understood, an expression as
to its merits or demerits" would be
premature. The imuression appears to prevail, however, that the
bylaw is unnecessary, and that it
would revive sectional feelings now,
happily, almost dead.

has been cashing time checks in
Phoenix ever since construction
work was resumed on the Great
Northern, is dangerously sick with
typhoid-pneumonia. Last Tuesday
his life was despaired of, and the

his removal to Greenwood, as the
high altitude of Phoenix would only
aggravate the ailment. By wrapping the patient in blankets, the
journey down the mountain was
safely made The latest intelligence
from (ireeenwood states that there is
a Blight improvement in his condition.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well utke a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt fjike City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express tniins make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel! The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair curs,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
euch in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of hie guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

THOUSANDS ACQUIRING THE DOPE HABIT
The dope habit is being acquired by
thousands of Canadians through using
.so-called cures for catarrh containing
an  excessive   amount of alcohol and
other dangeroUR drugs.   Doctors claim
there is only one safe a'ld certain cuie
for catarrh—fragrant, healing Catarrhozone, which cures by medicate:! vapor
tnat is breathed direct tu the seat of;
the disease.    The  balsamic vapor of j
Catarrhozone   kills  the germs, heais|
s ire   spots,   stops   dropping   in   the j
thn at, keeps the nose clear   and  per-,
inanently eradicates every trace of ca- j
t rrh from the system.    Ca a rho one
cin't   fail;   it's    guaranteed.      Two!

A TWO MINUTE CRAMP CURE
That isn't equalled the world over
Nerviline, thc greatest relief for
eani| s and stomach painsever di*e.v-
ered. Nerviline acts promptly and is
very pleasant to take. "1 think Ner-
vi'ine is the finest remedy itl the world
for colic and cramps," writes W. B.
Wilton of Toledo. "When 1 take
Nerviline I know it's going to
relit ve ipiickly, and for that reison I
am never without it. I have found
Nerviline goml for sick headache and
stomach trouble and recommend it for
strength and sureness." Excellent for
inward use—good to rub ou, Prico

Toronto Daily
News
$2.2$
per year
A radical change from old
methods anil prices has been
made by the Toronto Daily
News. The eyes of the news-
pvper world have been upon
The News for tbe pasWyear,
during which time several
departures have heen made
which have given that paper
n'widespread reputation foren-
terprise and originality. This
lateit move is to place The
News at the price of fl.00
a year by mail. Only a deep-
founded belief in thc future
success of Tbe News could
lead the publishers to make
such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine bas taken hold of the
people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure
a vast and ever-increasing
eircnl ton, based not only o i
the popular price at which
it is sold, but mainly upon
the in rinsic merits of the
paper.
Wc have arrangements concluded which enables us to
club the Toronto News with
our own paper at .$2.2") a year
in advance. Such a corn-
bin ition presents many
unique features—our semi- -
weekly giving you nil tbe
home and district news, and
the big 12-page daily keeping
you in touch with events all
over the world. Send us your
subscription to The News, or
if you woulcf like to see the
paper lirst, write us and we
will secure a sample copy.
