Fourth Year-No. 83
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, August 15,1905
Issued Twice a Week
Acquired by the Granby Co.
for a  Quarter  of a
Million
Will  Greatly   Augment   the
Holdings of the Company
  V
The following appeared in last
Thursday's issue of the Spokane
Spokesman-Review, regarding recent
purchase of mining claims in Phoenix
camp by the Granby Co.:
"The banner mining deal for the
year to date in British Columbia was
closed by wire from Spokane yesterday
when the Granby Consolidated company concluded the purchase of the
Gold Drop group of clainw in Phoenix
Camp for $250,000. The property
has been under bond for some months
and has been exhaustively tasted by
diamond drill bore holes.
"The property is owned by Ihe Gold
Drop-Mining Co., Ltd., of Montreal,
which expended $40,000 in develop-
menl and equipment. The group includes the Gold Drop, Gold Drop
fraction, Fhillipsburg fraction and
Nugget claims, all located east of the
original Granby group.
"In addition the company has purchased from Messrs. Vaughan St, Mclnnis, prospectors of Phoebiz, the No.
13 claim, between the Granby and
Gold Drop groups. The consideration
for the No. 13 was $14,000 cash.       J
"All the properties thus sddedto the |
Granby group are crown granted and
patented. The prospectihg' "undertaken by the Granby company demon*
strated the existence of large ore Indies of similar quality and value to the
ore in the Knob Hill and Old Ironsides. The group will now be operated in conjunction with the main Granby mines.
"The additions to the Granby prop*
erties thus secured increase the company's holdings in Phoenix camp to
about four times the original area of
mineral land. The company now has
continuous property extending over
8000 feet from east to west and 9000
feet from north to south. Recently
the Monarch groug, consisting of the
Monarch, Tamarac, Tamarac fraction
and Missing Link were acquired at
8180,000 to round out the group to
the east, and in 1904 the company
bought the Monte Carlo group on the
north. The Gold Drop group is east
of the Monte Carlo properties."

DOMINION FAIR
New Buildings, Costing $35,-
000, Now in Hands of
Decorators.
British Columbia Exhibits Will
Prove Eye-Openers Even
to the Nntives
New Westminister, B. C, Aug. 14
—With the Dominion Exhibition just
six weeks away and the various committees that have to do with the elaborate arrangement*! are working overtime in order to have their work all
completed so that it will require only
the pressing of a button to set everything in full swing on the morning if
Sept. 27.
Scores of artisans and laborers are
busy on the site of the 1905 National
Fair and nearly all work has developed into the stage where finishing
touches are the only worries. The old
provincial exhibition grounds, on
which so muny successful fairs have
been held under the auspices of the
Royal Agricultural <fc Industrial society have been greatly enlarged and
with the many alterations and improvements will, for b'liuty, surpass
anything of the kind in Canada.
Tho new buildings, Wmch represent
the latest ideas and best skill in architecture, together with the expenditure of $35,000, are now in the hands
of the painters and decorators whose
schemes promise most attractive results.
The space in the buildings is amp'e
to accommodate a stupendous array
of exhibits representing all that is
of interest in the pnxlucts and manufactures of Canada and thc extreme
limit of this space will be occupied.
The British Columbia exhibits of
horticulture, floriculture, agriculture,
live stock, fish, game, timber, minerals, etc., will be an eye-opener to all
who are not in constant touch with
every centre and corner of the province, and it will be a revelation to
visitors from other parts of the Dominion and the world. Nearly every
fruitgrowing district in the province
—and there are about thirty of them
—will make its best showing, which
means an amazing display of what is
destined to be one of British Columbia's most important resources.
The sports and spectacular and
musical events will be iu keeping with
the general nature of the great exhibition. GJIjp -Ebttting S»un

The Prison Mirror, published in
th<**. Minnesota state penitentiary,
makes the following statcmeht:
"Why is it that from the inception
of this paper to the present time we
ha've not had an editor to sojourn in
our midst? Other professions have
been represented. Of preachers we
have had enough to furnish substance to an African chief for a year;
of doctors enough to depopulate a
state; and lawyers enough to establish a good-sized colony in hades.
But of editors, not one."
A Bad Bruise
Often causes a good deal of trouble.
The best cure is a prompt application
of Nerviline, which instantly stops the
pain, prevents swelling, removes all
blackness and discoloration. Nerviline
is antiseptic—prevents blood poisoning. No liniment so strong, so penetrating, so swift to destroy pain. You
miss a lot of comfort by not using
Poison's Nerviline. For nearly fifty
years it has been the standard afmily
liniment of Canaila.

The girl that does not try to conceal her age is too young to go into
society.
™A western girl whose well-to-do
parents had sent her t<i a famous
school in the east and spent a year or
so at the institution, and, in a letter
to her practical minded pupa signed it
not simply "Jessie," as she was named,
but "Jessica," as she was not named.
In his reply the old man wrote: "Dear
Jessica: Your welcome letter received. Mammica and papaica are
well. Aunt Maryica and Georgica
started for Californica yesterday. • I
have a new horseica. It is a heautica.
Its name is Mautlica. Your brother
Tomica is doing finely, and the hired
girl is apeachica.
A lawyer in a western city once
went to another part of the country
on business. On arriving at his destination he found he had forgotten
the name of the firm lie had come to
see, and had laft all enlightening memoranda in his desk. After wasting
valuable time in useless efforts to remember, he telegraphed home to his
partner for the necessary information.
He got it, and more. "Your business
is with Smith k Jones," his partner's
message ran.    "Your name is Brown."
Wearing Away Your Lungs?
Yes, and your strength too. Stop
coughing and get rid of that catarrh.
The only remedy in.Cntarrhozone, which
goes to the diseased tissues along with
air you breathe; it can't fail to reach
the source of the trouble; it's bound
to kill* the germs, and as for healing
up sore places, nothing can surpass
Cata.irhozone. If you don't get instant relief and ultimate cure you will
at least yet your money back, for Catarrhozone is guaranteed to cure catarrh in any part of the system. You
run no risk—therefore use Catarrhozone—at our expense if not satisfied.

The Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no

Its out-of-town circulation is
