Boston Paper Speaks Highly
of Granby Company's
Officers.
Big Additions to Be Made to
the Smelter Here Next
Summer.
mines are low grade gold-copper-silver properties, similar to the other
holdings of the Granby company.
The eompany is following out its
policy in these purchases in securing
an illimitable supply of copper for
handling in its smelter here at Grand
Forks. Tho company bought the
Old IronsideB fraction last year. Thc
claims are at Phoenix. Mr. Rumberger is one of the pioneers of the
Phoenix camp and helped to locate
it. The Granby company is already
in possession of the Monarch and is
working it. It will .begin to work
all the properties at once.
The Boston News Bureau, One of
the leading mining papers of the
country, in recent editorial comment, declares that the "Granby
company has the strongest directorate, outside of the Calumet & Hecla
company, of any copper niihe in the
country."
The directorate was secured by
the energetic efforts of Jay P. Graves,
general manager of the company. It
includes some of the foremost men
of the copper world, and all varieties of the trade are represented.
The following official statement is
given out by the Granby co*npany :
"It is the intention of the Granby
company the coming year to install
two more blast furnaces. The Granby
smelter has six furnaces, and is
^smelting about 50,000 tons of ore
per month. These Bix furnaces are
all of the same dimensions, 160x42
inches at the tuyeres. The two new
furnaces which are to be installed
(contracts having already been let)
are to be 207 inches long and 48
inches wide at the tuyeres. This will
bring the smelter capacity up to
70,000 or 75,000 tons per month,
and will naturally increase the copper production.
"The entire smelting system is being remodeled on a new plan introduced and tried by General Superintendent A. B. W. Hodges. The
furnaces will be charged by an automatic charging car, which will take
the ore direct from the ore bins and
place it in the furnaces. General
Superintendert Hodges figures on
having the new furnaces and other
equipment, which includes the required number of blowers and
motors, also a large brick stack and
extension for the flue chamber, ready
by the 1st of July, and, the Granby
capacity from then on will be from
72,000 to 75,000 tons of ore per
month. The copper production will
increase accordingly, and the output
from that time on will be at the nte
of 20,000,000 to 22,000,000 pounds
per year. The converter plant is
also being doubled."
John Stanton, one of the directors
of the Granby company, who is considered an authority ou the eppper
market, says that copper at between
15 and 10 cents a pound is on a fair
basis for botl. producer and consumer. He does not predict 16-cent
copper, but says he would not be
surprised to see it. The output, for
1905, this authority says, will show
about the usual 10 per cent increase.
The Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting and Power company has
bought the Monarch, the Tamara'e
and the Tamarac fraction at Phoenix
from the Earl syndicate of England
for «1130,000, and the Missing Link
fraction next to the War Eagle mine
from George Rumberger and Mr.
.Porter of Phoenix for $30,000.   The

Once again the date of the annual
meeting of the associated boards of
trade of Eastern British Columbia
has been changed, and it is now announced that the convention will be
held at Nelson on February 22nd.
That double-column, black-faced
pica title carried by the late manager
of The News-Gazette proved too
great a burden for him, and he-had
to drop it. But, as we mentioned
couple of weeks ago, there is still
the Granby smelter", where he might
possibly locate a job.
Jack Farrell, Bert Sloper and
Frank Wilson left on Wednesday for
Spokane, whence they will go out
with Engineer DeWitt on the survey
of the Spokane-Inland electric railway line, which is to built through
to Moscow, Idaho, by Jay P. Graves
and associates. Messrs. Farrell and
Sloper were with Engineer DeWitt
during the past six months on the
Great Northern's Grand Forks-Phoenix branch.

Ladies  of the   (Maccabees
Give a Successful Whist
Party,
Geo. A..Fraser, M.P.P., returned
from Victoria last Tuesday Mr.
Fraser went to the coast for the purpose of interviewing the government
on the subject of a Provincial subsidy for the North Fork branch of
the Kettle Valley line and other railway legislation of vital importance to
the city of Grand Forks and the
Boundary country. On being seen
by The Sun man, Mr. Fraser said
he had a very successful trip, but us
the subject was now being considered
by the executive council, ho was not
at liberty to give any of the particulars of his errand. He felt certain,
however, that there would be railway, construction in this vicinity
next summer.
The Ladies of the Maccabees gave
a progressive whisi, party in the
Eagles' hull last night. Miss Lily
Taylor carried off the lady's prize,
and Walter Haddeli the gentleman's.
John Donaldson had thc gentleman's consolation prize thrust upon
him, and Mildred Parker the lady's.
After the card playing, a program
was rendered, consisting of songs by
Mrs. Parker, Harold White and Miss
EHie Ross, a recitation by John Donaldson, and a duet by Mesdames
Parker and Disney. Light refreshments were served, after which an
impromptu dance, which lasted until
2 a.m„ was organized.
John Itogers, who was considerably injured in the explosion at tin
Senator mine last Sunday morning,
is improving rapidly, being able at
present to walk about the house and
eat three square meals per day.
Arrangements were completed this
afternoon for a hockey game to be
played at the skating rink here next
Wednesday evening between the
Grand Forks and Phoenix teams.
This will be the lirst of a scries of
mutches between these clubs during
the present month.
Henry Dickson und Miss Maggie
O'Connor were married nt the bride's
home in this city on Wednesday
evening by Rev. Father Bcdnrd.
Everything is in readiness for the
masquerade at the skating rink tonight, and the affair promises to be
a big success. The races will prove
exciting, and will bring out some of
the swifts of the city, but it is not
unlikely it will be the proverbial
"dark horse" that comes in thc
winner.
Several of the smelter boys were
staitlingly surprised at thc unexpected liberality of a party of local gentlemen, who, with some lady friends,
made "the grand tour" of tho Granby smelter last Tuesday night. One
of the employees kindly consented
to act as guide for the party, and,
a'ter showi ig h'lii nil over tin- b'g
works, was r; turning to his dutiei,
when the gentleman oi the party
t ink u[i u collection among them*-
selves and prepared to reward their
obliging guide with tlu- munificent
sum of twenty cenls.    Jake wns
brought up in an old world school,
however, and looked like ten cents
more than the aniou.it offered. He
refused to accept the token of appreciation, being satisfied that virtue is
its own reward.
i  "
Mike Smith, a tapper at the Granby
smelter, while drawing ofl' hot matte,
from his receiver, last Tuesday,
was badly burned on his foot. The
molten metal struck him on the
right leg and entered his shoe, charring the ilesh in a most horrible manner. Dr. Northrop was at once summoned, and he arrived on the scene
a few minutes after the accident had
happened. At first it was thought
that amputation of the injured limb
would probably have to be resorted to,
but a more careful examination
proved that expedient to be unnecessary. Mr. Smith is an old s'melter-
man, and is one of the most experienced men at the Granby works, having been employed in the converter
room for over a yeai*.
The Sun has received an invitation
from the mayor and council of the
city of Rossland to attend thc- big
winter carnival over there on February 15th to 18th, and has been extended the usual editorial courtesies.
The society and financial editor of
this family journal, owing to the
stringency in thc local money market,
will unfortunately be unable to attend ; but the sporting and dramatic
editor, whose wants are few and
modest, expects to grace the four-day
festive affair with his enthusiastic
and distinguished attendance.
Rev. J. R. Robertson will preach
next Sunday evening in Knox
church on the subject, "Life in Relation to the Home." This will be
the second sermon in ''The Great
Relationship of Life." A cordial
welcome will he given to all.
Mr. Harold Nelson and his dramatic company expects to make an
early visit to Grand Forks, when a
presentation will be given of the five-
act drama, "Paul Kauvar," which
deals with stirring episodes of the
French revolution during the "Reign
of Terror."   '
As previously noted in The Sun,
Judge Leamy is indisposed at his
home here with an attack of kidney
trouble. He is considerably improved in health now, but has been
granted four months' leave of absence, during which time it is hoped
he will regain good health.
The local hockeyists arc again
busy practicing, in preparation for a
series of home and home games with
Phoenix, the first of which will be
played next week. The Sun hopes
that a team will then be made up of
Boundary players to meet sonic good
outside teams heru and in Phoenix,
including Vernon or other visiting
teams to the Rossland carnival, which
would give the people of this district
an opportunity of seeing a good exhibition of the popular winter game.

Messrs. -Taylor iinl Fisher, the
contractors, are busy these days. Be
sides putting up vast quantities of
ice, Mr. Fisher had a force of four
men Mid four teams over at Danville, Wash., for four days this week

of miles below thnt place. These
contractors built the wagon road between the railway track and mine
last summer. The machinery moved
included a compressor, boiler, engine
and hoist, and arrived from thc East
over tho Great Northern, was transferred to the Kettle Valley, and from
the latter's tracks hauled by sleighs
to the mine. Very quick work was
made in installing the plant.
Their ice business has grown to
rather large dimensions, and they
now have a bigfir^e of men and
many teams at work. Tho ice has
already been entirely cut from the
city's part of the slough, and is now
being taken from the water surface
on P. T. McCallum's property,where
cutting rights have been secured.
Five hundred tons are being put up
for Frank Hartinger, and also a large
quantity for L. A. Manly. Altogether, in the neighborhood of -1,500
tons witl be harvested) a goodly portion of which has already been stored
in the numerous city icehouses.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1905 ■
Tho Spokesman-Review nonchal-
ently remarks : "If the United States
desired to steal the Dominion of
Canada, of course the thing to do
would be to move quietly across the
line and annex it. No serious resistance could be offered, and the
outlay would not be large in lives,
time or money." It may bo so; but
a different policy would have to be
adopted from the one used the last
time the United States troops came
over, when they march-id back without the State of Michigan, which
was only returned to the Union by
a special treaty. A little history is
a wondrous thing. Also, we have
grown some since then.
Last year approximately 70,000
settlers from Great Britain entered
Canada, and about 50,000 from the
United Stales. As long as these proportions are maintained there is not
much danger of the Canadian Northwest becoming "Americanized," as
Southern editors are so free in asserting. With those from jlder Canada
also, taking up land in the Northwest in large numbers, our Bottlers
from the United States are in sufficient minority as to cause no uneasiness either to their neighbors or
themselves. They will have to abide
by our laws as they find them, and
before being able to assist in changing them they will have to renounce
their allegiance to their former country, like other foreigners, «nd become British subjects, by which
time they will have discovered the
superiority of our institutions over
their own, and will become good Canadians, like thousands of their fellow-countrymen before them.

It is now practically certain that

A MAN HATES HIMSELF
When he wakes up with a headacl e
ind had taste in  the mouth.    Something is needed to settle the stomach,
clear away the dull heavy feeling; create a little appetite. Just get a tumbler
f water, some si gir, and  pour in   a
iff dose of Nerv.line.   You'll pick up
nmediately and feci tip-top in u  few
dilutes.    Nerviline hasn't  an equal
for a condition of this kind.  It stimulates, cures the headache, relieves the
sick   feeling   and fits you for a hard
day's work.    Try  Nerviline.    Large
bottle   costs 25c.  H.  E. Woodland,

WHY CIO EAST
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 dp, by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, tho far-
famed "Scenic Liue 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 live
distinct routes of travel. The equip-
i ment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, anil also
personally conducted excursion ears,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort  of  bis guests.    No more
pleasant anil inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

CURES COLDS IN ONE HOUR
Many cold cures are dangerous because composed of deadening opiates.
But fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
cures colds in one hour and is both
harmless and delightful to use. Even
the worst colds, sneezing, sniffeling
colds with running eyes are stopped
very -quickly when the balsamic vapor
of Catarrhozone is inhaled. Catarrhozone acts like a churn* on colds, kills
them outright, prevents their return' a
few hours later. For colds, catarrh
and throat trouble use only Catarrhozone. Complete outfit 81.00, trial
size 25c.    H.  E. Woodland, druggist.
The Flnt Atlantic Cable.
The original 1858 cable weighed ninety-three pounds per mile and had a conductor of seven copper wires of twenty-two and a half gauge; price of deep
sea wire per mile, $200; price of spun
yarn and Iron wire per mile, $2115; cost
of outside coating of tar and gutta
percha, $25 per mile; total cost per
mile, $485. At $485 per mile the total
cost of the 2,500 miles of deep sea wire
was $1,212,500. To this add twenty-
five miles of "shore end" wire, costing
$1,450 per mile, and we find that the
first ocean cable, exclusive of Instruments, cost $1,250,000. .
The Bye of * Jellrflfth.
The eye of a Jellyfish Is so primitive
that we can hardly say whether It sees
or feels—that Is, when a floating Jellyfish begins to sink below the surface
of thc water as the shadow of nn advancing ship falls upon tt It Is probably affected by the sensntlon of darkness, but perhaps the pressure of the
onrusblng wave has something to do
with It.

Looking Forward.
Unless one hns something to look forward to It Is dllHciilt to live. When
tlio joy of looking forward Is gone the
ZOSt of life elihs and fails. The days
