Second Class Ore Gives Returns of $107 in Gold
and Silver.

McKinley mine
than ever before.
They   report
as looking better
The Bccond furnace at the Montreal ct Huston smelter is likely to be
blown in the latter part of this week.
The third furnace is now being
placed in position.
On the 15th of December a
Car of First-Class Ore
Will Be Shipped.
Recently the Skylark mine, in
Skylark camp, a couple of mileB from
Phoenix, shipped its first car of ore
since work was resumed on the prop
erty after seven or eight years of
idleness. Last week a second small
car was shipped, the ore all going to
the Granby smelter. It is learned
from an authoritative source that
the returns from the first car, which
was what is known as second class
ore, gave $107.25 per ton in gold
and silver, and those from the second car, which is third-class ore,
are expected to run $50 per ton.
About the 15th of ihe present
month a car of first-class ore will be
sent out to the smelter, and this will
undoubtedly bo by far the best ore
yet sent out. After that shipments
are to be maintained regularly from
the property.
Since thc Skylark was taken over
under bond by a syndicate of Phoenix men, the property has been
worked uninterruptedly, and has
been put in shape to maintain a
steady output of ore, thus maintaining the good name which this mine
nas always enjoyed.
Thc last car of E. P. U. ore netted
ver $2000 for less than 20 tons.

Last week's ore shipments from
the Boundary amounted to nearly
19,000 tons, the largest week's total
since since shipping was commenced.
The Montreal & Boston Consolidated is asking for tenders for sinking a shaft on Lancashire Lass in
Summit camp.
Since commencing operations the
Montreal & Boston Consolidated
people have placed orders for not
far from a million feet of lumber at
mines and smelter.
A force of four men have been
working at tho Gem clai*n, in Long
Lake camp, which is under bond to
Robert Wood & Co., of Greenwood.
A small ore shipment was recently
made to thc Greenwood smelter.
A  remarkably   rich  strike was
made on the Bay olaim last week
Foundations for the new Brooklyn

chamber last night. Mayor Hammar, Aid. Feeney, Clements, McCallum, Martin and McNee were present.
The following accounts were ordered paid: Max Kuntz, 88; Grand

city at $150 and $300 respectively.
Aid. Clements moved, seeonded
by Aid. Martin, that Mr. Hodges'
tender be accepted at the rate of
$10 per day, the maximum amount
not to exceed $150. Aid. Hutton
offered an amendment, which was
seconded by Aid. McNee, that Mr.
Campbell's application at $10 per
day bo accepted. After a long discussion, which was at times quite
warm, tho amendment was defeated, only Aid. Hutton and McNee voting for it. The original motion was then adopted.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
McCalluin, Messrs. Martin and
Feeney were appointed a committee
to investigate the advisability of put-
ing a box drain in the ditch at Mc-
Callum's slough.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Martin, the city clerk was authorized to purchase a sufficient amount
of coal for office heating purposes.
On motion of Aid. Martin and McCallum, it was decided to accept $50
from J. W. Jones for the city's
wagon and rent for same; if not taken
by Mr. Jones, the clerk was authorized to dispose of it to the best
possible advantage.
Chairman McNee reported having
laid a 4-inch water pipo to P. Burns
A Co.'s meat market on the understanding that tho cost be paid by the
firm, such amount to be credited
on water rates.
On motion of Aid. Clements and
Martin, the matter of the water
pipes taken up by Mr. Miller, by
errer, was referred to the water and
light committeo and the Columbia

R. C. Morgan, superintendent of
the Spokane Falls & Northern railroad, who will have charge of the
Great Northern Phoenix branch,
spent a portion of last week in the
Boundary, going over the lino from
this city to Oro Denoro on a construction train, and walking the
balance of the way to Phoenix.
Mr. Morgan saw no reason whjr a
passenger service could not be inaugurated as soon as the rails are
laid to Phoenix, which will evidently be before Christmas, at the
rate progress is being made by the
contractors. The Phoenix train will
run straight through to Marcus, a
stub Irom Republic connecting with
it at Grand Forks junction.
RAILWAY NOTES.
Railway laborers are still going
out of the country in droves every
day.
Scarpelli's big rock cut is not quite
through, but it will be before the
track reaches that point.
It is understood that trains on thc
Phoenix branch will be operated
with a telephone system, as is being
done more and more in the east.
There are three sidings between
this city and Phoenix, one each at
at Macy's ranch, Fisherman and
Oro Denoro—-with another to be put
in later at Deadman's.
Patrick Hughes put in the last
shot on his 40,000 yard rock cut last
week, and now has his work practically completed—several days be-
track gang is ready.
Nine locomotives are now employed on the construction line between this city and Phoenix, so it
can be seen the railway people arc
pushing matters as much ns possible.
Bums & Jordan arc nearly done
with the work to Phoenix, and another week will see the tail end of it
going on.
It may take another week or ten
days fur the completion of the long
ami high Headman creek trestle by
Porter Bros., but when they finish
it they will probably haven straight
run into Phoenix Jor the iron squad
ot 100 or more men.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1904
But very little interest is being
taken in the approaching municipal
election in this city. The people
gcnorally appear to bo satisfied with
the preseut civic government, and
it would not be surprising if the entire council were returned by acclamation.
The corporation of the city of
Grand Forks is now reported to be
in better financial condition than at
any time in its history. The year
that is now drawing to a close is sivid
to be the only one in which the
authorities have not been confronted
by overdrafts at the banks.
Our "grave and reverend" local
contemporary has finally decided to
bury the so-called cemetery question.
Mr. John Houston, M.P.P., has announced himself as a candidate for
mayor or Nelson. HiB opponent is
William 0. Rose. Mr. Houston
waB mayor of Nelson for several
terms during the growing period of
that eity. He has a large personal
following, and will likely be elected.
In provincial politics John is slightly
erratic, but as mayor of Nelson he
has done good work for the city.
Word has come from the east that
ollieials of the Grand Trunk Pacilic
are expected at Victoria next month,
and that they will approach the provincial government asking for concessions with respect to their proposed lines in British Columbia."
While it is certain that there will be
many matters upon which the company and the government will require to completely understand each
other, the Victoria Times, Senator
Templeman's paper, says "thc premier and his friend, the chief commissioner of lands and works, must
not attempt to hatch a conspiracy
involving the spoliation of the province under the belief that they can
escape condemnation by pleading
that they were compelled to make
the sacrifice in order to secure the
construction of the line from the Pacific end. The officials of the Grand
Trunk I'neilic will get all they can
from the McBride administration: It
is their business to work for I heir
shareholders. The duty of I lie gov-
eminent of llritish Columbia is to
pntc t the interests nf the people of
Hritish   Coliimbiu.   G I  mining. -
Blent nod sound business firiltciples
demand that no time be lost in getting into operation nnd cnriiing
money upon the capital invested,"
Having thus stated its reiooiis for
opposing "spoliation of the province," the Times concludes by advising Premier Mellride to say to the
Grand Trunk I'acilie officials: "Not
an acre of land; not a cent of
money."
A SATISFACTORY PILE REMEDY

THE GREATEST FAMILY REMEDY 	
And one well known in most Canadian homes is Nerviline, a perfect
panacea for all internal and external
nain. Mm, M. E. Oartwright of Morris says: "I couldn't think of being
without Nerviline. When I get toothache Nerviline stops it. If I get a sick
headache, have a trouble with my
stomach or bowelB, I can rely on Nerviline to cui-e me promptly. To break
up a cold or rub on for rheumatism or
neuralgia Nerviline has no equal. It's
priceless in any family." Nerviline is

WHY (IO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
nnd alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through Oie
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 Lake City, Glen-
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 five
distinct routes of travel. The 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 charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive moans of
crossing the continent can be found
than   ie  provided   by    thetjo    excursions.

A f«w week* ago, saya James MaeA
thur In "Harpers Weekly," I quot-
some passages in these columns from
correspondence between the Browning
in the days of their early acquaintances Carlyle's strong dislike of poetry.
have just heard of a new story on th
tame theme which is told by Professo
Qoldwln Smith. It appears that Profc-
*or Smith was once a visitor with tlu-
lyle at Lady. Ashburton'o house whr
Tennyson was one of the circle at "Tl
'•Tange." Tennyson was asked to rer
me of his own poems aloud, but, to tl
urprise and disappointment of his ge
le hostess and her company, he refust
—a thing he waa never apt to, do. Loo)
ing across the room, Professor Smith sa
the cause of the difficulty. Close to Te
nyson sat Carlyle, who was wont t
make a universal sweep of poetry in i;
illation to common sense when arouse
hy the proximity of the Muse. Prof--
-or Smith, devoting himself to the puh
He good, and, we may add, in courteou
•onsideration of his nostess, crossed th
00m, and invited Carlyle to take
stroll In the grounds, The Sage acccptr
the invitation, and, during the stroll, tl
poet brought off his reading.
Good Listening.

on "good hearing." The fact that »

mind, ready to invite and appreciali-
Wits may clash to the point of deafenin
themselves- The sympathetic and lilei:
listener is the buffer between.
Buskin is geid to have been excellcn
oompany. He spoke in * tone of "gentli
and playful earnestness." He had flood*
of thought and knowledge to pour forth
if only he could get the right hearers
But there were the barren occasion-
when listeners were absent.
One day a friend gave a little dinnei
for him. Doctor Jowett and Dean Stan-
fey. But no sooner had the dinner begun than the host realized his mistake.
He had provided no setting for his jewels, no junior men as hearers. "Thev
wanted to meet one another," he said.
"It should have gone off brilliantly, but
the soup came, and the fish followed, and
they simply would not talk. At last I
said some stupid thing to Stanley about
the architecture of Westminster Abbey,
and that drew Buskin find started us all
off. Then all went well. But I shall
