Lake Superior Mine Kings
Will Visit  the Granby
Plant in June,
A party of capitalists from Boston
and New York, prominently identified with the copper industry, will
visit thc Boundary district early
next month. It will comprise the
following American directors of the
Granby Consolidated Mining &
Smelting company:
John Stanton, president of the
Osceola, thc Winona and the Mohawk Copper Mining companies, and
vice-president of the Copper Range
railway, in the Lake Superior district; C. S. Houghton, Boston; C.
Payne, president of the Copper
Range railway and president of the
Copper Range Consolidated Copper
company of the Lake Superior district; George Martin Luther and A.
L. White, New York. Accompanying the party -will be G. F. Her-
reschoff, general manager of the
Nichols Chemical company, refiners
of copper and prescious' metals, of
New York. The visitors will leave
New York on May 23 and travel
west from Montreol in a special car
via the Canadian Pacific. Their
arrival here will be preceded several
days by S. H. C. Miner, of Montreal, president of the Granby company, and probably a number of
Canadian directors, including Fay-
et|p Brown of Montreal.
An auxiliary mining equipment
and a plant,including electric hoists,
has been recently installed at a cost
exceeding $140,000. This will enable tho Granby mines to ship a
maximum of 5000 tons.
On his recent visit to the eity, Mr.
Graves was questioned regarding
thc report that the Granby company
is likely to pay its first dividend
soon. He said: "We shall certainly do so if we can have sixty
days' full run of the four furnaces.
During the past fourteen months
the smelter, owing to lack of coke
and the coal miners' strike, was
worken only two months at its full
capacity. The lirst carload of equipment for the two new furnaces was
.shipped last week from Chicago."
couples were in attendance by invitation, and the host and hostess
spared no pains or expense to entertain their guests in right royal style.
The best local music available was
in attendance, and dancing and
games were joyously indulged in till
12 o'clock, when a repast such as is
seldom equaled was spread to gladden the inner man and woman.
r _
Miss Anderson, who assisted Mrs.
Newby hi carrying out thc program,
received thc lavished "compliments
of her friends for the unqualified
success AA the event. Abqut 2
o'clock the guests dispersed, giving
vent to songs of praise of the host
hostess for a good lime, and proclaiming in no uncertain sound that
"everybody enjoyed it." ***

A's all the evidence has not yt
been taken by the Columbia & Western investigating committee,- it
would be premature at this moment
to pass judgment as to the guilt
of any particular person implicated
'in the gigantic conspiracy todefraud
thc people of an immense area
of coal and oil lands in Southeast
Kootenay. It is gerftfrally understood in political circles at the capital, however, that at least two members of the ministry, have been requested to retire, and 4hat the government will meet thc house next
Monday with a readjustment of
portfolios.
The organization of* the Interior
District Liberal Council, at Nelson
during the present week,, was a
move in the right direction. ! Thc
political* barometer points to an
early election, and it'is desirable
that it should be conducted on party
lines—the only method by which
the province can sqcure a responsible
government. The newly formed
council is to be congratulated for
placing itself on record on thisques-
tion.

just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in

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, 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. Thc equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lect dining air service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
\rfiose business is to look after the
aimfort of his guests. No more

crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions,

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
Last Tuesday morning the second
furnace at the B. C. Copper company's smelter was blown in, notwithstanding that,coke jis not yet
coming sufficiently freely to keep
both supplied. The company,
however, had a reserve of about 1500
tons of coke wheik the works were
shut down in February, so this is
being drawn on, the expectation being that the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
company will shortly send in larger
supplies.
The Montreal & Boston Copper
company will blow in one furnace
next Monday and a second one as
soon after as coke supplies shall be
sufficient to make it practicable to
run two furnaces. ..
There has been considerable activity in Lucille Dreyfus stock lately,
due to reports of a rich strike in
the Jower workings. Wben Col'.
William Ridpath, who owns the
controlling interest in the mine, was
asked for the particulars of the
strike, he stated that he knew of
none being made. ' 'The rumor was
occasioned by the fact that in sinking some ore was passed through
that carried free gold and some
copper, but there is no truth in the
rumor tbat a strike has been made,"
said the colonel. "The ore body
has been cut in the deepest workings of the mine, and it was found
to be in nearly the same condition
as above. The vein was not quite
so wide, but carried about the same
values. The ore body is in two
streaks, being five feet wide in all.
Part of it is high-grade and part
low-grade ore." Col. Ridpath left
Spokane this week for the mine, at
Danville. While in the, Boundary
he will visit Phoenix and other mining camps in this district, returning
home in about ten days.
A temporary shut-down has been
forced at the Contact mines, as the
trails are impassable for the carrying
of supplies. Work has been progressing all winter, a drift of 200
feet having been run on a vein of
from three to five feet of $30 ore,
containing gold, silver and platinum. It is expected a government
wagon road will be built into this
camp this year, there being several
other properties in the Burnt Basin
that would be benefited thereby.
The Tammany group, in the same
eamp, is to be operated extensively
this year. This property was purchased last year by a Mr. Pickering
and associates of Chicago.
On April 30th Capt. Harry Johns,
who has been superintendent.of the
Sunset mine since August, 1899,
retired from that position and A. I.
Goodell, superintendent of the Sunset smelter, took charge of the mine,
with Mr. Galbraith as his assistant.
Capt. Johns has retired from the
service of the Montreal & Boston
Copper company with the good will
and best wishes of all its officers.
