Noted Mining Men Speak in
Glowing Terms of the
Granby Gompany.
J. B. F. Herreschoif, one the party
of eastern capititalists who visited
the Granby smelter and mines last
week, spoke very highly of the
big eompanny and its officers. Mr.
Herreschofl is one of the best known
mining engineers in America,
and his views on our mines and
smelters should carry considerable
weight.    He said:
"The results now being achieved
in the treatment of low grade ores
here arc really remarkable. Ordinarily, capital would shrink from
undertaking to solve the problem of
mining and smeling low grade copper ores similar to those of the
Gaanby, and containing small
values in gold and silver. The
whole conception of the Granby enterprise indicates great depth of
thought and remarkable attention to
detail. Had every factor in the
proposition not been carefully considered, it is questionable whether
success would have been achieved.
With the enormous ore bodies already developed and in sight at
Phoenix, coupled with the able management and economical methods in
mining and smelting, the Granby
company as a producer is destined
to become one ot the leading factors
in the copper industry."
Equally enthusiastic was the expression of opinion elicited from
George Martin Luther, general manager of the Nichols Chemical eoni-
compan, New York:
"Thc impression produced on me
and the other members of thc party
was the immensity of the proposition that has to be handled at the
Granby mines. I had been told
about the ssze of the ledge in feet,
but the impression conveyed by
actual measurement of its length and
width was entirely different. Large
as 1 had believed the ore body to be,
I had to abandon my preconceived
notions. The immensity of the deposit to one who has never visited
Phoenix is scarcely credible. All
the ore treated thus far has been extracted during development and thc
company is only getting ready to
do real work. I was well pleased
with the smelting plant, which is
well arranged and run on the most
approved principles."
Continued on Fourth Page.
A MUSICAL EVENT
A grand concert will be given in
Biden's opera on Wednesday evening, Juno 17th, by the Ladies' Aid
of Knox Presbyterian church. The
best local talent of Grand Forks have
kindly consented to assist in this
entertainment. A number of choice
selections from some of the leading
comic operas will be included in
thc program. Mr. Evcrette War-
riner, Mexico's eminent manolin
soloist, who bears the distinction of
being unrivaled in his art, has donated his services for this occasion.
An entertainment meriting a liberal
patronage may' be looked for.

HARDY BRIDGE IN DANGER
Mr. E. Spraggett came down from
thc North Fork on Wednesday,
and reports that the recent high
water has generally dilapidated the
new bridge built last year at Hardy's
crossing. Thc piles in thc centre
pier have dropped several inches,
and Mr. Spraggett says it is not safe
for a man to cross on horseback.
The rip-rap recently put in to protect the bank and prevent theabutt-
ment from being washed oiu is also
ruined. This is very unfortunate,
as the bridge and fts protection has
been built at a very   large  expense.
The practice inaugurated last year
at the Columbia bridge of photographing it, has been repeated with
the   ruins   up   at     the    crossing,
and the photograph is being forwarded to the government, and no
doubt the'misfortune will be traced
to thc real cause.
Charlie Harrigan came down from
the North Fork yesterday, and says
that since the above report was made
the. centre pier of tbe bridge has
sunk nearly two feet and is' still
sinking and is likely to so out.
ENDORSED
No company that we have ever
heard of has ever come to this city
with such favorable comments as
"A Wise Woman." They have the
unanimous endorsement of the press,
and this you may rest assured will
be your only chance to see this superior company, as they make but
few stops going from New York to
San Francisco. We have no doubt
of their success here. At the Opera
House on Monday, June 15.

SUNSET SAUNTERINGS
There were 300 free miners' certificates renewed in the Grand Forks
mining recorder's office for the ensuing year, and three companies'
licenses.
The British Columbia legislature
will be dissolved on the Kith inst.
This was decided on at a meeting of
thc executive last Tuesday morning.
The reason for the delay is that the
half-yearly renewal of licenses takes
place on thc 15th. Applicants must
be on the voters' list, and if the
house were dissolved now without
machinery for at once getting the
prospective applicants on the lists,
these men would be disqualified.
By deferring dissolution-^! thc Kith
applications can be ^T,.de on the
15th for licenses on th^, old lists.
The board of license comiiiwsion-
ers for Boundary Creek License District will meet at Black's hotel,
Phoenix, on Monday, June 16, at
4 o'clock.
S. H. Brown and family left yesterday for Chicago, where they intend to reside in future.
W. D. Phillips, who has been visiting at the home of his son-in-law,
Mr. Smith, the contractor, during
the past three months, returned to
his home in Buffalo, N. V., last
Wednesday.
Mr. and Mrs. S. H. C. Miner
returned from Butte, Mens., last
Tuesday, and are guests at the Yale.
They were accompanied by A. p.
Flumerfelt, assistant to President
Miner.
The entrance examination for the
high school is being held in the
Grand Forks public school building
this week—June 10-12, inclusive—
by Provincial School Inspector Wilson, of Nelson, B. ('. The number
of students trying number 23—18
from this city, 2 from thc Kettle
Valley school, 2 from Phoenix, and
1 from Cascade. The examination
is quite difficult, and those who sue-
in passing must be congratulated.
It is ,to be hoped that a sufficient
number will pass to warrant the
establishment of a high school,
which would give Grand Forks the
lead of the Boundary cities in educational lines,
A WISE WOMAN
The engagement of this company
at thc Opera House on Monday,
June 15, gives promise of being tbe
most important musical comedy
event of the season. The play,
which is in three acts, is so constructed as to give scope for the introduction of specialties, and from
scviews seen of the production these
features arc said to be of a very superior order. ®ty iEfomwj £>mt

FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 1903
The Victoria Times says that the
Prior wing of the grand old party
is somewhat disposed at present to
throw bricks at the head of the
modern Richard the Usurper. But
the colonel might as well accept the
situation gracefully. The man from
Dewdney is in power. The rewards'
are his to bestow, and there need be
no fear but the faithful, whether in
Victoria or in other places, will fall
in behind.^ who controls the emoluments iand the situation. Col.
Prior has b#en many years in public life, but he is for the first time
about to drink of the bitter cup that
is presented to the lips ot all politicians who   are   found out.
BASEBALL TOMORROW
The Grand Forks and Nelson
baseball clubs will play a match
game at the athletic park in this
city tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon.

Dr. John Westwood, of tbis city,
chief quarantine offiaer, has established a quarantine service at the
boundary near Rock creek in view
of the smallpox outbreak across the
line. W. J. Cook is in charge at thc
Cascade station.
Two furnaces arc at present in
operation at tho Granby smelter. It
is expected that a third will be
blown in in a few days.
Early last week one furnace at the
Boundary Falls smelter was allowed
to go cold on account of the lack of
coke—the old trouble. This cut
down the ore shipments from the B.
0. mine, the Snowshoe and tbe Sunset, from which this smelter secures
its chief ore Supply.

Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take 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 travelling on
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, jGjfin-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of live
distinct routes of travel. Thc equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in cnargcof a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

VIEWS (^EXPERTS
Concluded from First Page.
W, A. Paine, the noted mining
man of Boston, had this to say:
"Boston people are largely interested in the Lake Superior district
and Butte. Not so British Columbia, which hitherto has been almost
entirely unknown to me. I came
here entirely ignorant of the conditions of mining. The Boundary
district has proved a veritable revelation to all of us. I was amazed at
the courage of Messrs. Miner and
Graves, who as pioneers, rode 60
miles through the forest and began
mining operations prior to the advent of the railroads. The character of the work accomplished thus
far and the equipment of the mines
and smelter indicates their' confidence in the enterprise as well as
comprehensive views on the mining
question. The Granby mines arc
destined to he large copper producers. I was also impressed
with the organization which Mr.
Graves has secured in every department. Evidences of skilful and efficient management are quite apparent. It is certain that low grade
propositions like the Granby's vast
ore bodies can only be operated on
a large scale. Everything has been
plannel from the start with that end
in view. I feel confident that mining in British Columbia is only in its
infancy. The character of the ore
is such that only extensive operations under the most economical
management can be successful. It
is a country where large capital
especially can be advantageously
employed.''
Speaking of copper mining in the
Lake Superior district, Mr. Paine
said:
"The Copper Range railway, of
which I am president, handles
about 7000 tons of ore daily. Our
freight rates are far lower than those
prevailing in British Columbia. We
hauls ore, coke and lumber at an
average charge of 15 cents per ton
for an average distance of 17 miles.
Can your Canadian roads do as well
by its patrons? Our railroad is 105
miles long."

hotel in the city, has a capacity
