Hedley's Big Mine Has Over
Four   Millions in
Sight
Lack of Transportation Facilities Retards Mining in
the Camp
While rival railroad companies are
lighting, in the courts and occasionally
in the open, for rights of way in southern British Columbia, one of the richest mineral districts in the province is
being quietly and steadily developed,
says the Nelson Daily News. The delay in securing transportation facilities is undoubtedly retarding the
growth of mining camps into towns
and cities—and it has made the cost of
mining supplies and operations very
high, but it has not prevented the
development and profitable operation
of one of the biggest and richest mines
iu America.
The Nickel Plate group in Hedley
ciuup, the property of the Daly Reduction company has betn worked
steadily for two years. During the
lust year regular shipments have been
niiule to the Everett smelter. Concentrates have been shipped for treatment. The sand has boon cyuuidod in
thu company's own mill at Hedley
ami the bullion has been shipped, also
to Lveiott.
The route from Hcilley to Everett
and other coast points is an extremely
roundabout one. Everything in the
way of provisions, miniug machinery
and supplies is taken in, and the mil •
put oi the mines sent out; by way of
Penticton, the Okanagan lake, Sicu-
mous and the main line of the Canadian Pacilic to Vancouver.
Tho distance from Hedley to Penticton is 45 miles, and the cost of
packing is ftiiU a ton for every kind of
freight. It will readily he seen that
tinder such circumstances only very
rich deposits can be worked at all,
and the best only by companies with
abundant capital.
The Nickel Plate group consists of
fifteen claims, of whioh only two have
yet been developed—the Nickel Plate
and the Sunnyside. The amount ex
ponded to date by the Daly Reduction
company is between 8-,U()O,0U0 and
$2,000',f)d6.      Ill     return   for   that
amount the company, iu addition to
nil i hat has already been shipped, has
iu sight more than $4,060,000 worth
of ore.
A. 11. Brown, who is retiring alter
two years'service from the BUperin-
tendency of the company's cyanide
mill, iu speaking of the Nickel Plate,
said:
"In spite of all the difficulties it has
lind to contend with from the beginning, and apparently will still have to
face for some time, Hedley is all right.
"When the country is opetied by n.
railway and supplies and machinery
can be taken in at reasonable rates,
a largo number of very rich mines
will be operated, and Hedley will become one of the best camps in the
province.
"So far tho Daly company has done
nearly all the work that has been doue
in the camp. Its operations are on a
very large scale. Of the fifteen claims
contained in the Nickel Plate group
only   two, tho Nickel Plate and   the
Sunnyside, have had any development
done on them so far.
"Tho mine is at an elevation of 5850
feet; the camp is 1470 feet. Tho ore
is brought down by a system of electric trains, with a grade of 5 per cent,
and a gravity tram, interrupted in the
middle, with a grade probably averaging 36 per cent.
"The ore is concentrated in Hedley
and the concentrates are shipped to
Everett. The sand and tailings arc
eyanided and the bullion also shipped
to Everett. Everything is shipped by
way of Penticton.
' 'The amount of ore actually in sight?
It is hard to say; certainly more than
84,000,000 worth. The ore varies
greatly in value, but it is all high
grade.
"I don't know very much about
other mines in the district except those
owned by the Daly company. Some
splendid samples have been shown,
and it is reasonable to suppose that
many other properties are also very
rich and extensive. Rut they are
mostly in the hands of men who cannot afford to operate on a large scale
under present conditions. They are
waiting, with what patience they can,
for thc long promised railway connections^
"There are probably about 300 people in Hedley now. Half of the nuniher aro men. Quite a number have
brought in their families. There is
no doubt about the permanence of the
camp, hut living is still pretty   cxpen-
NEWS OF THE CITV
$200,000 Option on McKinley   Mine  Confirmed by
the Directors
Peter Larson, the well known
millionaire ruilwuy contractor uf
Helena, Mont., is reported to be
dying of cancer of the liver. Mr.
Larson has been .suffering from liver
trouble for stuno time, although it is
said lie did nut realize the seriousness of his condition. Mr. Larson
is one of the richest men in the
northern tier of stntes west of St.
Paul. His fortune is roughly esti-
iiiutcp at $20,000,000. When he
begun his career in the great, and at
that time undeveloped, west he did
not havo a dollar. He was always
uii indefatigable worker, and thnl,
coupled with a great deal of natural
ability, won for him thc success he
deserved.
W. P. Ticrney, nf Nelson, con
traotoron the Canadian Paciflo railway construction west of Midway,

Movement  to  Organize  an
, Athletic Association in
the City
The annual meeting of the McKinley Mines, Ltd., was held in tiliis a
few days ago, when the following
directors were elected: R. Lequime,
president; H. W. Warrington, vice-
president, and C. R. Hamilton and
A. R. Mackenzie, of Rossland. The
option for §200,000 given to J. S. C.
Eraser, of Rossland, was confirmed.
During the winter months work on the
property will bo suspended, Next
spring, however, development work
will be resumed on a largo scale, as
there are now ample funds in the
treasury for this purpose. When work
was discontinued, a short time ago,
the mine was looking better than it
ever did before, and there is not the
slight doubt of it becoming one of the
leading shippers of the Boundary as
soon as railway transportation facilities are afforded the camp.
An enthusiastic meeting of the
Grand Forks Hockey club was held in

The case of Tom Wiseman vs
James Newby, for trespass, occupied
nearly the entire afternoon in Police
Magistrate Coohrano's court lust
Tuesday. The witnesses fur the
complainant were Tom Wiseman,
Mrs. Wiseman, Emma Mullen and
I. A. Dinsmore, ond for the dcfcuci'
Geo. Eraser, Jeffery Hinrimar. II- A.
Sheads and J. Newby. After hearing
the evidence, Judge Cochrane imposed a minimum line of SJ.5U and
costs of conviction on defendant.
The action arose out of an aiteiupt
of Mr. Newby to cross Mr. Wiseman's land over the North Fork
road.   Thc merchants of this   eity
have made liberal contributions in
thc past to have this thoroughfare
opened up to public traffic, and thc
chief commissioner of lands and
works, on his recent visit tothecity,
also made a promise that the road
would be opened up as soon as he
reached the coast.
Martin Burrell emphatically denies the persistent reports sent out
from this city to the effect that he is
a candidate for mayor in the approaching civic election.

As stated in Tuesday's issue of
The Sun, a meeting of the shareholders of the Granby Consolidated
Mining, Smelting & Power company
is called for December 1 to raise the
par value of shares from $10 to §100.
The reason for the change is that
brokers on the Boston stock exchange charge §12.50 for buying or
selling 100 shares of Granby, exactly the same commission they get
for buying or selling 100 shares of
railway stock of 8100 par value.
In commenting on this change,
the Huston News Bureau say.
. "When tho Granby company increases the par value of its shares
from $10 to 8100 and reduces the
nuniher of its shares from 1,350,000
to 135,000, it will probably immediately start dividends at the rate of
$G per share per annum.
"The company is now earning at
the rate of about $1 per share upon
its present 1,135,000 shares, ur $10
per share upon its proposed new
capital uf 135,000 shares.
"On the present market value of
the shares, $0.50, the new stock
would have a market value of $05,
and Granby interests claim that thc
present earnings of 810 per share
justify this price; tbat us a matter of
fact when the company is able to
operate ils full battery uf eight furnaces uninterruptedly, it should he
able to show earnings un Hi cent
cupper uf between 813 and $11 per
share
"The Granby company has this
year increased its mineral urea in
in llritish Columbia over 100 per
cent and has started in tu systematically open up its new properties,
which show copper bearing rock
from the grass roots, as do must uf
thc Boundary district cupper properties,
'When its properties nre thoroughly upencil and the company's
power facilities are increased tu pre*
vent nny recurrence uf troubles incurred this summer by reason of Insufficient power tu operate ils snn-1-
ter full force, it   is nut unlikely lliat
the Granby company will agn n im-
terially increase its smelting capacity, ami the eompany will have
15,000 shares of treasury stuck
which it can dispose uf fur this purpose, probably at new par value uf
Slot) per share. This, however, is
something fur the future"

hope is Ferrozone, an instant blood-
maker, blood-purifier, blood-enricher.
It brings keen appetite, digests food,
and supplies nutrition for building up
all the bodily tissues. Ferrozone makes
muscle and nerve-fibre, increases your
weight, instills a reserve of energy

Many a girl that  is good  looki
enough to be a typewriter is wasting
her time behind a dry goods counter.
It's always good to look on thi
bright side of things, and if you are
buying them it is well to look on both
sides.
Many people stuff turkeys with
oysters, though the general opinion is
that it is a waste of good oysters.
The man who married his ideal
for his first wife is looking about for a
mere woman for his second.
About the only way to convince a
girl that her favorite young man is
not an angel is to let her  marry him.
When a girl says she just hates a
certain man, she is either in love with
him, or else he isn't  in love with her.
If you want to know what your
friends say about you, listen to what
they say about others in   your   pres-
It is a great deal easier to regulate
a watch when it gets too fast, than it
is to regulate a fast young man.
It's curious how a woman who
screams at a mouse, is not at all star-
tlod at a millinery bill that makes a
man tremble.
Whon a man refuses to have his
teeth eared for, saying that he cannot
afford it, it often means that he has
not got the necessary nerve.
Many a girl has been sorely disappointed because a dude asked her to
marry him instead of asking her to
accompany him to some show.
One of the fujst indications that a
woman is becoming reconciled to spin-
terh :o I is her desiao to learn new
games of solitaire.
As a rnlc, the chap who carries a
guitar in ound on the streets to show
off cannot play it well.
You must never' judge the com
plexion of a man's wife by the stray
.hair seen on bis coat sleeve.

WIDOW OF BALZAC.
Th«   Author  Lefl   Her it  Great   ftfamtf
.ind a LeKi<ey of Debt.
When Mine. Ilnnskn's husband died
it was supposed that her union with
Balzac would occur at once, but obstacles were interposed by others. Her
own family looked down upon the
great French author us a mere story
teller, and by her late husband's people
sordid motives were imputed to him to
account for his devotion to the heiress.
The hitter objection was removed a
few years later by the widow's giving
up to her daughter the fortune left to
her by M. Hanskn. This was followed
by her remarriage after a "beautiful
heart drama," ns ter husband calls it,
"which had lasted seventeen years."
Six months later Balzac died, and my
aunt found herself for the second time.
a widow, with the burden of her husband's large debts and that of his
great name, which she bore with such
dignity for thirty years longer. She
never spoke of the blow his death hud
been to her. She must have felt it
deeply, and she would not have been
human If she had not cherished resentment ngnlnst those whose opposition
to her wishes hnd robbed her of some
years of happiness, but if it wns the
case she never let any one guess it.
Once only I heard her mnke n remark
which gave me a strange insight Into
her inner life. We were talking about
happiness In geuernl, and I observed
how very eager people were to interfere with that of their neighbors. My
mint looked at me for some time, then
slowly said: "I think that this comes
from the fact that so very few people
understand whnt real happiness it
They mostly look upon it as a superficial thing and treat it with the light
heartedness they apply to all other enjoyments of existence. If they understood and realized whnt it renlly means
for those who consider life in Its true
and serious light they would respect It
more."
The Spenker'a Magnetism.
Paterfamilias hns come, soft shod,
Into the parlor aud hnd found matters
much us he might have expected considering that Reggie Addelpuit and the
daughter of the house were there alone
and thnt he bad sneaked In.
"Ah!" exclaimed the fnther, and his
remnrk was singularly well chosen.
"I—I—I was only rehearsing a new
recitation I had Just learned." stammered Reggie.
"80 I suppose," said pnterfamlllas,
"but the thing I objected to was your
peculiar method of 'holding your audience.' "
