Third Year,
Grand Forks, B. G, Friday, November 13, 1903
No. 4
5000 Tons Daily-
Granby Smelter Will be Enltarged to
That Capacity
time ago.   A number of people fron
this ofty will attend.
As Soon as the Coke Supply and Transportation Facilities
Permit—Expect to Pay Dividends of 4 Per
Cent on Par Value.
After inspecting the smelter in this
eity and the mines in Phoenix, Jay
P. Graves, general manager of the
Granby Consolidated Milling &
Smelting company, expressed himself as follows in regard to the enlargement of the reduction plant:
"The directors have decided to
run the smelter at least six months
with the present equipment of six
funiiices in order to demonstrate our
ability to successfully produce and
treat a tonnage of 2100 tons daily,
and to secure sufficient labor and
..coke, as well as to test the ability of
the railway to handle the tonnage
involved. If those tilings all work
out in practice the question "f making a further addition to the smelter
will be determined. Every time wc
have increased our tonnage we have
found that some of these factors have
been lacking, and it has in each instance usually taken from three to
six months before things ran
smoothly. This time we will make
a crucial test before elaborating our
plans for further expansion of our
"The ultimate claim of tho Granby is to treat' all the tonnage our
group of mines can produce. These
mines are now equipped to bundle
5000 tons of ore daily, and,of course,
we expect to treat that amount of
tonnage at Grand Forks some day,
whether one year or three years
hence. The policy of the board is
to pay a portion of the earnings in
dividends instead of pulling everything into equipment, as has been
done in the past. This is what we
expect to do as soon as the present
plant of six furnaces goes into operation and is in smooth running order.
"The directors are also of opinion
that they will pay a dividend of not
less than 4 per cent per annum,
payable quarterly. I mean a I per
cent dividend oh shares of the par
value of $10 each, or ten per cent on
the selling price of the Granby
stock, which is at present quoted at
64 per share."
J. J. Early and \V. B. Rulson, capitalists of Philadelphia, were guests at
the Yale this week. They are making
a tour of the Boundary with a view
of future investment, Tbey are accompanied by Prank Watson, a Spokane mining operator. Both Mr.
Early and Mr. Rulson are interested
iu the Granby smolter,andexpressed
themselves as well pleased with the
promising outlook of that concern.
They left yesterday for Phoenix,
where tbey will inspect the Granby
mines and other properties before
Tho Methodist church Sunday
school will give a grand annual
Christmas tree and entertainment on
Wednesday evening, December 211,
at the Biden opera bouse. Tbe excellent cantata entitled "The Tjial of
Santa Clans" will be put on by the
school children, assisted by some of
the older ones, under thc direction
of Miss Winter, Miss McGill and
Mrs. W. B. Bower. Rehearsals have
already commenced, and every endeavor will be made to have it surpass anything of its kind ever held
in the eity. A fancy drill by the
young ladies will be a special feature of thc evening's program.
W. H. Covert has over fifty acres
of potatoes still in the ground, and
if winter sets in in earnest be will lie
unable to dig tbem tbis fall. Last
year ho loft a lot of his potatoes in
the ground' over winter, and they
turned out to bo in splendid
shape last spring.   The conditions
may not be the same tbis winter,
however. Snow fell last year in
large quantities before any heavy
frost came, thus protecting tbem
from the cold.
At tho Methodist church next
Sunday Rev. J. F. Betts, pastor,
will take for his morning subject:
"A Guarded Life." In the evening
the theme will be "Thc Breath of
Lives," being thc third of a series of
Sunday evening discourses upon
"The Soul, and Some of the Laws
by Which i} is Governed."
Quite a number of Butte miners

He   is  slowly  recovering under the
care of Dr. Kingston.
P. T. McCallum's eight-year-old

The Phoenix people are not to be
outdone by "ye olde folkes" of
Grand Forks, and are holding a
"greate concertc" in tin; Miners'
Union hall, Phoenix, tonight. Quite
i lengthy and interesting program

Mr. Harold Nelson and his com
pany gave two of the best performances ever seen in this city at the
Biden opera house Tuesday and
Wednesday evenings. On the open
ing night tho powerful religious and
historical drama, "Quo Vadis," was
presented, The company was
originally billed for one night only,
but owing to tho hrge turn out, and
a request for a second performaco,
Mr. Nelson decided put on Shakespeare's great drama, "The Merchant
of Venice," for the second night.
Both plays were faultlcssslv rendered
anil tbey were witnessed by largo
appreciative audiences.
Mr. Nelsou bas exercised good
judgment in adding "(Jno Vadis" lo
bis repertoire, lie has been seen in
Grand Forks in several Shakespearean roles, but it is doubtful if he
lias done any of tbem as well as bis
Marcus Vinicius. The entire company, loo, acted their respective
parts as if they had been specially
selected for this play, Several
changes have been made in Mr. Nelson's company since be was here
lust, and all of tbem for the bettor.
The staging of the play# is the
most elaborate yet seen ill this eity,
and the story is closely followed
throughout Mr. Nelson makes a
splendid Marcus Yinii-ius. .Mr.
Bruce, us Petronius, was faultless,
The Nero of Mr. Roland was much
applauded.   Miss MoLoay is one of
the most DOtablo new addition to Ihe
company. It is said that she is a
sister of Franklin Mcl.cay, tho well
known Canadian actor who died a
lew years ill London. She is.an
actress of a very high order of
merit, and is certain to bring credit
to herself and the stage.
In "The Merchant of Venice,"
Mr. Nelson makes an admirable
Sbyloek; Mr. Bruce as Bassanio
was thc best we have seen in a number of years, while Miss Mel.eay's
Portia could scarcely have been improved upon. The rest of the cast
played their parts   very acceptably.
The management of the opera
house is to be congratulated on securing so strong an attraction as the
Harold Nelson company proved to
be. The people of Giand Forks will
look forward to their next visit with
October Shipments
The Showing for That Month Largely
Exceeds Total for September
70,000 Tons in All, the Granby Mines Being the Largest
Shipper—Mining-News From All Sections of
the Boundary District.
C. W. McRae, of Rossland, returned to the city last week, after
doing assessment work on the Sim-
coe mineral claim, which is situated
twelve miles up the North Fork,
and owned by himself and A. D.
Morrison. Some nice stringers of
ore were encountered, and the property looks very promising.
The Senator and Fremont mineral
claims, recently bonded by the
Granby company, are showing up
well. A large piece of the Burface
has been stripped, exposing a big
body of ore. Shipments will be
made to the smelter in this city at
once. The work is in charge of
John Rogers.
* *   *
A recent trial shipment from the
Belts and Hesperus to the Granby
smelter gave results satisfactory to
the management.
* *   *
It is reported that A. S. Goodell,
manager of the Montreal & Boston
Copper company's smelter at Boundary Falls, bas resigned. Mr.
Goodell will spend till- nCXl three
months in Spokane, prior to accepting an important position in Colorado. He bas directed the affairs of
tbe Boundary Falls smelter with
marked success during the past year
and a half.
Definite returns of the ore shipments from the largest of the shipping mines in the Boundary for thc
month of October have been made
and taken with the other properties
that are shipping to the different
smelters, it is shown that the advance over the month of September
is substantial. The combined output of ore for October from Boundary mines is in excess of 70,000
tons, against B.'l.OOO for the month
of September. It was to be expected tbat thc Granby mines would
show thc largest tonnage, as four
furnaces were running almost continuously during October, and that
company's properties alone shipped
some 14,000 tons more than the previous month. The nc::f 1-i-gcst
shipping mines, thc Mothe'i Lodo
and Snowshoe, show a somewhat less
tonnage than for September, due to
local conditions entirely. According to thc figures received thc following mines sent out the tonnage
as subjoined:
Granbv mines 89,898
Snowshoe  9,480
.Mother Lode 12.665
Sunset     898
Morrison      5011

took to reading (joetlie. and came upon
a ihtiplcr in Wilhelm Melster," In
which an eccentric lover of music Is
described: "lie could not live without

used to say that mmlo I* really Intended for the ear only, whereas lu concert

first step In ihe way ot rational reform

ninny people Jumped .il the Idea, It has
already been realised, first In Uarni-

A man goes to a concert to near music. But when h«* gets there he sees a
great deal more than he hears, and
his attention Is distracted. The pillars,
the statues, the lusters, all turn nla
thoughts away from the strains meant
ic soothe or Inspirit. That Is not as it
should be, and yet It Is not by any
means the worst. He looks around at
the ladles, many of whom come to be
looked at. He sees the luxuriant tresses
of one ey'.ph-likc figure before him, and
as he cannot ratch a glimpse of her
Charming face, he tries to guess at the
features. His neighbor, a rich tradesman, is engaged In estimating the cost
of the riviere of diamonds round her
shapely neck. A third worshiper oi
Terpsichore finds himself behind the
sweetest thing In hats, and must be
content witli hearing, since he can't
see anything beenus-v of the beautiful
obstruction. Now, all these things were
biought tn the concert for the purpDse
of being seen, whereas people come
primarily to hear, Suddenly a burst of
applause reminds them of this fact—-
and of the other, that they have not
been listening to the sonata.

A Woman Who Could Shoot
A story told "by the wife of a factor of
the Hudson Hay Fur Trading Company
aliows that ability to do a thing well
sometimes makes the actual doing unnecessary. The woman had been brought
up in the post, where her fattier was
chief factor, and, like all the children
and women, had learned to use firearms
with ease and accuracy.
My father and the men had gone away
to a conference with the Indiana, who
hnd been hostile for some time, she says.
They had left orders not to open the
gates of the fort.
It was a blistering day and the water
In the stockade grew warm. So it waa
suggested that someone go to the river
.and get a fresh pailful. My aunt agreed
to go, and marched out alone with a pail
in one hand and a rifle in the other.
We stood behind tho loopholes of the
closed gate, saw her disappear down the
bank, come up again with a dripping
pail of fresh water, and set it down
again as if to reat. She had barely picked
it up again when she stopped abruptly,
gazing straight at the high grasses on
the right of the path between herself and
the fort. All eyes at the loopholes turned
in that direction, too; and there, stealing through the grasses with their war
feathers and war paint on, we saw two
young marauding warriors plainly bent
on mischief. They evidently knew that
the men were all out and only women in
the fort.
We could not possibly shoot in my
aunt's defence without great, risk of hitting her. If we unfastened the gate, one
of the Indians could easily have forced
an entrance while thc other stopped her.
But my aunt, instead of rushing in, set
down the pail. .She looked again where
the Indians had now risen boldly up directly under a solitary tree.
On the topmost branch of that tree sat
a "whisky-jack"—a bird of the jay family which is common round camps in the
Northern woods. Quick, as a flash sh'
aimed her rille, "picked oil" that jay us
coolly as if she had been at target prat-
tiee, nnd then, ns calmly lifting the pail
of water, came slowly to the gate, whole
wc received her with open arms.
As for the Indians—well, there was i
flourish of greasy shoulders through tin
long grass, und the two braves had dis

A Romantic Episode.
The King's vinit to Paris has been
marked by a siifgulnr and picturesque
incident, says the "Spectator." It ap*
pears that iu 1873 a chemist named Dun
val was accused of poisoning his wife,
and that the King, then Prince of Wales,
anxious to watch French procedure, attended the trial, which ended in a sentence of imprisonment for life. Tho
Prince, who had watched the evidence
for five days, wns certain that justice
hod miscarried, and visited the convict
in his cell to tell him so, and enquire If
any remedy were possible. None could
be found, but after twenty years' imprisonment the sentence wns revised and
M. Danval liberated. The kindness of
the Prince in his hour of despair had
made a deep impression on his mind,
and when the King recently visited Paris
he addressed him n letter full of gratitude for the visit paid twenty-five years
before. One wonders if kings know the
depth of the impression both of regard
and of hatred which they can almost
unconsciously make.
