The  Company  Expects  to
Duplicate the Present
Smelter.
After having been closed down for
a week to permit of the blowers being connected with tbe two new furnaces, the Granby smelter has again
resumed operations. Two furnaces
were blown in last Tuesday, another
one yesterday, and the fourth will be
started up today. All the machinery
for the two new furnaces has not yet
arrived, and they will probably not
be blown until about the 1st of next
/     month.
When the two new furnaces are
blown in, the Granby smelter will
commence treating 2000 ton's of ore
per day, and there will be an addition of about 105 men to the payroll
of the mine at Phoenix and the
smelter in this city.
With the completion of furnaces
No 5 and 6 the present smelter is
fully completed. The Granby company, however, expects next year to
commence the erection of a duplicate
smelter with a capacity of 2000 tons
a day. The mine at Phoenix is
equipped to handle 5000 tons of
ore a day.
Some apprehension is expressed
by the management on account of
the scarcity of laborers. So many
Ooiindary miners have caught the
Poplar creek fever, that the fear i.-
imtertained tbat the company may
soon find itself shorthanded. Seventy more muckers and 35 machine
miners are needed, and 35 more
■'""~  men at the furnaces could be used.
Last Night's Meeting
The Socialists of Grand Forts
riding opened the campaign last by
holding a lal'y in Federal Union
ball, at which speech* 8 were delivered by K. T. Kingsley, of Nanaimo, Socialist, and W. H. P. Clement, of this city, who defended the
Liberal cause. The meeting was
not very well attended, ami at no
time did the audience evince any
great amount of enthusiasm.
Mr. Kingsley made a characteristic Socialistic speech, in which all
capitalists were characterised as
robbers and parasites.
After Mr. Kingsley had concluded
the opposition candidates were called
for, but there were no opposition
candidates present, ^•AUcment,
being called  for, macflH^ort and
able speech, iit-whieh he showed that
the Liberal party had always been
the laboring man's best friend., Mr.
Clement stated that he spoke as a
private citizen, and not of a candidate.

John Manly returned yesterday
from Chicago, where he has been
for a month past. Mr. Manly is as
sanguine-as ever of the future great-
nessVpf Grand Forks. His smelter
project, he says, will be sure to materialize next spring.
Geo. MacLeod and Frank Fritz
returned last Tuesday from a week's
trip to Thunder Hill camp.

servatives should carry a gun. In
no other way can they secure the
promise of support.
Services will be held in the MethjJ
odist church next Sunday both
morning and evening at the usual
hours by the pastor, Rev. J. F. Betts.
Several mines in the vicinity of
Greenwood are calling for more men,
but are unable to secure them. A
considerable number of incii could
find profitable employment in the
Boundary at present.
Jay P. Graves, general manager of
the Granby Consolidated, will leave
Spokane tomorrow for Montreal and
the east, and will attend the annual
meeting of the Granby company
there on October 6. Mr. Graves
thinks it is possible that the company then may declare its first dividend. The paying of it will rest on
a question of policy. After leaving
Montreal he will visit Boston to tile
the official statements with the stock
exchange, where Granby is listed.
The negotiations commenced a
few weeks ago for the transfer of
the Volcanic property, ten miles
north of this city, to a Michigan
syndicate, came to successful conclusion this week, when the first
payment was made on a working
bond on the mine. A diamond drill
will arrive in this city a few weeks
hence, when active development
work will be started under the supervision of R. A. Brown.
Rev. J. R. Robertson will conduct
services in Knox Presbyterian
church next Sabbath at the nsual
hours, both morning and evening.
Dr. Westwood, L. A. Manly, Jeff

LABOR DAY AT PHOENIX
Phoenix, Sept. 9.—While the
first day of the third annual Labor
day celebration here was somewhat
damp, the weather was all that
could be desired the second day,
and the events took place without,
interruption. •
In the morning the first event was
a log-rolling contest, Twin creek being dammed up for the occasion.
There were five entries for this, and
it created almost endless amusement
for the large number of spectators.
The first money went to Frank Rior-
den, with Sam Mullin second.
In thc hub and hub hose reel race,;
Greenwood failed to appear,although
they had expected to come. First
money was won by the Phoenix
team, with Grand Forks second. In
the wet test it required several runs
to decide, two teams being entered
from Phoenix and one from Grand
Forks. In the first run both Phoenix teams failed to get water, and
the Grand Forks boys failed te get it
in the agreed upon time limit. In
the second run, No. 1 team from
Phoenix made a good test, but No.
2 did better, and the Grand Forks
team succeeded in making a tie,
both getting water in 2S 3-5 seconds. By agreement the purse was
divided.
M. P. O'Neill secured the prize
for putting the 21 lb, shot, making a
distance of 37 feet, 5j inches.
The standing high jump was won
by A. Monro, and the running high
jump by G. C. McLaughlin. Monro
and McLaughlin got the prize in the
three-legged race.
In the cigar race J. Haverty was
first, with J. Feeney second.
There were a dozen races for boys
and girls, which were pulled off, and
created much amusement.
On the whole, the celebration was
a success, and the many visitors report having had a good time. Three
electric arches were erected acroii
the streets in different parts of,
city, giving a ma pretty j ~ /

Socialist orators maintain that
the capitalist is a robber and a parasite, and that the laborer is entitled
to everything. There are millions of
dollars buried in the hills around this
city, and thousands of idle working-
men throughout the country. If
the capitalist is useless, why don't
these men come and dig it out and
take all the profits.
"The workingman owns the
earth," says Mr. Kingsley. Surely,
he wouldn't be so cruel as to have
tbe country editors deported to some
other planet.
Here are a few Conservative candidates, with short sketches of their
their past careers:
x D. M. Eberts, who as attorney-
general misled the house, wrongly
advised the lieutenant-governor and
almost succeeded in giving the
Southeast Kootenay lands to the C.
p. a.
Richard McBride, who took Eberts' word for it, and who admits in
his sworn testimony that he didn't
take thc trouble to look into the
matter.
H. I). Helmcken, who deserted
tbe opposition that he might support
giving away thc northern portion of
the province to aid the construction
of a railway which the Dominion
government is having built without
alienating a foot oj public lands.
Chas. E, l'oolcy, secretary of the
Dunsmuir company, proclaimed
friend of Chinese and an avowed
enemy of labor unions.
A. E. MePhillips, one of the three
to oppose anti-Chinese legislation.
Price Ellison, who would vote for
anything and everything so long as
he got a new jail for Vernon.
jThere   is   a vast army of good
unldngmei^yho   have   no
"to  s
for   them.    But  Socialist   orators
never mention this fact.
A great many of the so-called
capitalists have to work over eight
hours a day to make the union scale
of wages..
A hitherto unnoticed incident of a
recent political convention deserves
publicity.
During the hours preceding themka-
ing of set speeches the strife for recognition from the chairman was particularly keen. One long, lean fellow,
dressed like a preacher, was evi n more
persistent than the others. After
many vain attempt to catch the chairman's eye, he began climbing over the
benches, still soliciting notice. He was,
perforce, recognized.
"The gentleman from Blank has the
floor," announced the chairman, and,
with a rap of his gavel, silenced the
crowd. Up marched lchabod to the
front of the platform, where stood a
table with a glass and a pitcher of
water.
"Gentlemen of the  convention," he
began, "I "   And he halted and
reached for the water. A few hasty
gulps and he began again.
"Gentlemen of the convention, I—"
Again he lost his thought and dived
madly for the pitcher. The crowd was
becoming restless' and when for the
third time he cleared his throat and
began, "Gentlemen of theconvention,"
nerves were on edge. The unfortunate
was struggling for utterance, but his
tongue would not obey him. He
reached for the pitcher, but was interrupted sadly by a voice from the gallery—a slow, distressing sympathetic
voice:
"Take—him—to—the—lake!''
Immediately from every' bench and
gallery rained unsuspected cups and
buckets of water. The delegate from
Blank was literally flooded out and for
the rest of the convention the flame of
his eloquence was effectuallyquenched.
In Victoria the following song is
the rage:
Oh! the Tory's delight, with boodle in
sight,
Is the election time,
With "stiffs" and "repeaters" they're
surely world beaters
At good election time.
Election once ovar, no more they're in
clover,
From office they downward climb,
And   that   is  annoying,   when  thev
were enjoying
The good election time.
CHWRUS.
At the good election time, at the good
election time,
The Dicky birds are   whistling   the
voters into line;
Alas!   for   Dick   and all his crew, the
cemeteries are,full
Of good old Tory  voters  who once
gave them the pull,
To get a fat job and the country to rob
Is Tory election time.
They   preach  Old   Protection,   which
means "no detection"
At good election time.
Rut  new  lists have come, the Tories
look glum,
"Repeating" is now a crime.

WHY GO 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 do by traveing 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
dose 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 per-
leet dining, ear 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 means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

"Ah! good morning," said a well-
known gentleman, addressing, a man
whom he met in the street.
"How are you, colonel?"
"Look here," said the first speaker,
after a short pause, continued, "avery
day I discover additional evidences
of the. fact that you do not like me.
Why it is?"
"Do you mean why you discover
the  evidences   or  why i do not like
your  ..
"Why you do not like me,, of
course."
"Well, in the first place, you are
such an eutrageous liar."
"Yes."
"And in the second place, it has
been proved that you are a thief."
"Well," said the colonel, "I merely wanted to know, and it strikes me
that your reasons are very good. I
am a sensitive man, and it nettles me
to think that anyone dislikes me without a cause. I am glad you have expressed yourself so clearly."
Not very long ago a wealthy tradesman called at the office of a firm in
the same line of business as himself
and asked for Mr. Budge, the head
partner.
Now Mr. Budge had married a new
wife who was very anxious to get into
good society. The name of Budge
was common. Aristocratic people
often pronounced their names different from the way they were spelt.
She would do the same. Henceforth
they would be called Boc-jay. The
caller pronounced the name plain
"Budge."     j,
"You want to see Mr. Boo-jay?"
said the office boy.
"No, I don't want to see Mr. Boo-
jay—I want to see Mr. Budge," said
the tradesman.,
"Well, there is no such man here,"
said the office boy.
"Yes, there is," was the response;
"I have been corresponding with him
for ten years."
"How do you spell it?" asked the
office boy.
"B-u-d-g-e," said the tradesman.
"That spells Boo-jay," said the office
boy.
"Well, it spells Budge to me," said
the caller, "and I ain't going to boo-
jay from this seat until by see Mr.
Budge."
Young Doctor—I find it hard to
draw the line befween a common cold
and influenza.
Old Doctor—It is hard, my boy;
but social distinctions have to be made;
there'8 no help for it."
An example of how not to begin a
story is afforded by a contemporary
devoted to fiction. "John Williams,"
the story opens, "had seen some fifty-
five summers. Blind from the day of
his birth," etc.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it

STOVES A SPECIALTY
BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
It is reported that the Le Roi No.
2 company, of Rossland, has closed
a contract with the Greenwood smelter for the treatment of the Josie
Sjjjd No. 1 mines' output. The rate
is not given out, but it is intimated
that it is considerably below the figure the company paid to the North-
port smelter for the last two years.
The company will ship about 2000
tons monthly,
The following ore shipments were
made last week from Republic to
the smelters: Quilp, 14 cars to Ta-
coma; Mountain Lion, 19 cars to
Nelson; Zala M, 3 cars to Crofton;
Trade Dollar, 1 car to Nelson.
All arrangements have practical y
been completed for using electric
power from Cascade at the B. C.
Copper company's works. The right
ol! way between the substation at
Phoenix and the smelter has been
secured, and the poles will be erected
and wires strung as quickly as possible. Negotiations are being carried
on with the Westinghouse company
through A. A. Miller, their pcattle
representative, for the necessary
plant.
The Greenwood and Boundary
Falls smelters barely escaped a coke
famine last week, as a result of the
burning of tho trestle on the C. P. R.
Fortunately the Granby smelter had
a considerable stock on hand, and
some twenty-five cars were diverted
from this city to be used at the
Boundary smelters. It seems that
even yet the coke supply for the
Boundary smelters is som cwh&t precarious.
The Providence mine is the first
dividend payer in the Boundary.
The announcement was made some
time ago that regular demands
would be paid, and the first of these
was authorized by the company on
September 1st. The dividend is 52
cents a share on the issued stock of.
the company, the total amount paid
out being nearly $2800. Regular
monthly dividends will likely be
paid in the future, as the mine never
looked better. Last week on tbe
175-foot level a strike was made. It
carries coarse free gold and assays
high in tiie thousand's.
Ttic'Greoiiwood Hoard of Trade at
its meeting- last week decided to take
'action iii the matter,<if getting up u
thoroughly representative ore exhibit of the section surrounding.that
city for the Interstate!fair to beheld
at Spokane early next month. F. .1.
Finucane, late manager of the Rank
of Montreal, has undertaken to see
to the proper display of the exhibit
both at the fair and ' permanently.
Large numbers of mining will be at
the fair, and this will afford the
Boundary an excellent oppertunity
to got the district-.'befoie people who
otherwise would not kilow of it.
