Fourth Year.—No. 40
Grand Forks, B. G, Friday, March 17, 1905
ISSUED TWICE A'
miA,*:
$125,000 Paid for.the Well
Known North  Fork
Property,
Fifty Per Cent Is to be Paid
at the Expiration of
the Bond.
The most important mining deal
in the Boundary in recent months
was consummated last Monday,
when Horace Pemberton and W. T.
Hunter of Greenwood, representing,
it is presumed, -the Montreal and
Boston Copper company, took a
bond for a year on the Seattle mine,
located ten miles up the North Fork
of the Kettle river from this city.
All the papers in the transaction
were signed on that day. The purchase price is 8125,000, of which 50
per cent is to be paid at the expiration of the bond, and the balance
one year lator.
The Seattle wag located some eight
years ago by Robert Gink. It is one
of the pioneer locations of the Boundary. Copper ore running high in
values can be found almost any place
on the surface.
It is expected that this 'bond-holders will put a big force of men at
work a* once developing the property. The mine is located less than
a mile from the C.P.R. tracks, and
if ore is found in sufficient quantities to warrant it, an aerial tramway
will be.constructed to that road, and
the ore shipped to the Montreal and
Boston smelter, '
The bond is given by Robert
Clark, the locator, and Hay, McCallum & Wright.
The compressor plant recently installed at the Betts & Htsperns mine,
four miles wsst of this, city, is doing
good work. Six men are now employed at the, mine, and Manager
Rea expects that ore shipments to
the Granby smelter will be commenced about six weeks hence.
The Bay mine, situated in Greenwood camp, iB having a steam plant
installed this week.
A rich strike of grey copper is reported from the Athelstan fraction,
Wellington camp. The shaft has
attained a depth of, 35 feet. The
property is owned by P. B. Nelson,
John Buckley and ForboB M. Kerby.
The new ore crusher recently installed at the Granby mines has been
put into commission: and is being
run light for a few datfg, alter which
it will do regular duty. Like the one
installed tyro yearn ago at the Knob
Hill mine, it has a rated capacity of
150 tons of ore per hour, or 8,660
tons every 24 hours. The two big
machines thus have a crushing capacity of 7,200 tons every 24 pours, if
driven to their full capacity.
At the first meeting of the stockholders of the Bouudary-Klknorn
Mining]comjjany, held in Greenwood
last week, the following were elected
directors: Phil McDonald, James
Sutherland, Thos. Hardy, Dr. Spam-
kie and H. V. Fuller. At a subsequent meeting of the directors, offi
cers were elected as followB : President, Phil McDonald ; vice-president
and managing director, James Sutherland ; secretary-treasurer, W. G.
Gaunce. It was decided to offer for
subscription 20,000 shares at 50c,
per share. The proceeds will be
utilized in installing a plant.
THE PRICE OF COPPER,
"Copper looks to me as if it will
hold its present level of prices," Baid
James Breen, of the Crofton smelter,
in an interview in Spokane last
Monday. Mr. Breen has just returned from an eastern trip, and this
statement should therefore carry
additional -weight.
"We are ready to start the Crof-
ton plant as soon as the Brittania
mine is in shape to send us the ore.
I understand that work has been going ahead on the improvements at
the mine.
"The recent failure of Munroe &
Munroe as a result of their speculations in Montreal & Boston stock
has not hurt that company. Munroe & Munroe were merely trying to
unload stock on the public at $3.50
a share that was not worth $1.
When their Bcheme was nipped, the
men of money in the Montreal &
Boston flotation came forward to
save the day. Payments for the
properties are being made. The
newspapers which gave so much
space to the failure were interested
not in Munroe & Munroe, but in the
expose that the vice-president of the
City National bank—a Rockefeller
institution—was helping Wall street
plungers. The most that the City
bank loaned at one time was $60,-
000, which is a drop in the bucket
for such a large institution, but the
papers took it up because it gave a
chance io dig the City bank.
"Boundary copper properties
sl.ould be doing well at the present
prices of copper. If the mines could
make expenses when copper was 11
cents—and I notice that they kept
running then—those same properties should be making a clear profit
of 4 cents a pound more, with copper at 15 cents.
"Granby is in high favor in New
York. The easterners who put their
money in that concern are well
pleased."
Granby Btock on Boston exchange
sold af $6.12J last Tuesday, an advance from 85.25 since March 1.
An agreement has been entered
into between the city of Greenwood
and the land owners of Anaconda,
by virtue of which the former agrees
to extend tbe waterworks and fire
protection Bystems to Anaconda. The
consideration is the transfer of the
water record of Lind creek, to the
city of Greenwood. The agreement
was ratified at a meeting of Anaconda property holders held last
week, and has also been endorsed by
the Gie nwood city council.
Police Magistrate W. B. Cochrane returned on Wednesday from a
ten days' trip to Seattle, Vancouver
and Victoria. He says he only spent
a few minutes in the latter city, but
this statement undoubtedly requires
readjustment.
J. M. Rots, who until recently
conducted a drug store in thiB city,
left tbis week for Spokane, where he
intends to engage in a similar business.        ,
Washout of Flume at Smelter Necessitates a Ten-
Hour Shut-down.

and instrumental music, dancing,
and last, but not least, an elaborate
spread, are some of the tempting attractions.

Leonard Vaughan, the well known
rancher, left Wednesday morning
for Vancouver, in order to render assistance, if necessary, to his partner,
Dougal Maginnis, who suddenly
disappeared from that city last week
and was subsequently found wandering about the woods near Blaine,
Wash., baseheaded and apparently
of unsound mind. Judge Cochrane,
who has just returned to thc city
from Vancouver, states the reports
regarding Mr. Maginnis' mental condition are correct, but the physicians say the case is curable, and
the patient will soon be all right
again. Mr. Maginnis is at present
receiving treatment at a hospital in
Vancouver, and is reported to be
doing nicely.
Last Mondiy's Great Northern

Mr. J. D. Spence left yesterday
morning for Toronto, and will visit
friendB and relatives in that city and
other Ontario towns for a couple of
months. Mrs. Spence and Mrs. W.
H. P. Clement, who have been
spending the past winter with their
parents at their old Ontario home,
will accompany Mr. Spence on his
return trip.
"Richelieu," the great play in
which Mr. Harold Nelson is shortly
to be seen, is more than a mere
dramatic performance. It is a direct spiritual force—a marvellous
illumination of history. Mr. Nelson, scholarly player that he is, hns
a temperament and personality peculiarly fitted to the effcotive poi-
trnyal of the famous prince of the
Roman church. Critics everywhere
concede Richelieu to be Harold Nelson's strongest character. In the
revival which Mr. Nelson presents
here on Friday, March 31, rliere
will bo absolute completeness of costuming and scenic investiture. His
manager, Mr. C. P. Walker, haB
provided sumptuous mounting. The
supporting company will be even
stronger than in the recent production of "Paul Kauvar," which
pleased so much. Clearly, Mr. Nelson's return in "Richelieu" means a
treat to the lovers of worthy drama.

A monster meeting of Boundary

for the purpoa-j of exemplifying the

A Canadian Sugar Makers' association is being formed in the East
to prevent the introduction of artificial maple sugar made of cheap
material. Canada produces about
18,000,000 lbs. yearly of pure maple
sugar, and the association believes it
is as characteristic of the country as
the maple leaf, and for that reason
the institution should be protected.
This week Duncan Ross presented
to the house a petition asking that the

said that the envelope was in the
handwriting of Dr. Sproule, but that

and that he had no means of kdowing
whether the petitien was bona fide or
not.
If there was considerably less
time given to caucusing by the Conservative government at Victoria and
more to actually helping British
Columbia to securh increased railway facilities, the people of this section of the Province, irrespective of
party leanings, would appreciate it.
The contract for the superstructure

It is reported that one of the Boundary excursionists to Spokane became bewildered and lost himself in
the labyrinth of sky-scrapers in that
city last night.
From the solitary Mountains
Down to Spokane went a simple
Yokel; there amid the rout
Grew bewilder'd of the countless
People, hither* thither, running,
Coming, going, meeting, parting,
Clamor, clatter, and confusion,
All about him and about.
Travel-wearied, hubbub-dizzy, i
Would the simple Yokel fain
Get to sleep—"But then, on waking,
"How," quoth he "amid so many
Waking know Myself again?
So, to make the matter certain,
Strung a card about his ankle,
And into a corner creeping,
Spokane and Himself and People
Soon were blotted from his brain.
But one that heard him and divined
His purpose, Hiily crept behind;
From the Sleeper's ankle clipping,
Round his own the ticket tied,
And laid him down to sleep beside.
By and by the Yokel waking
Looks directly for his Signal—
Sees it on another's Ankle—■
Cries aloud, "Oh Good-for-nothing
Rascal to perplex me sol
That by you I am bewilder'd, .
Whether I be I or no I
If I—the ticket why on You?
If You—then Where am I, and Who?"
[After Omar Khayyam, with Apologies to Nobody. ]

Nerviline in sweetened water cures
nervousness or sick headache, relieves

ONE OF THE VILEST DISEASES
Is catarrh, which attacks the nose
and throat and finally spreads all
through the system. The one sure
cure is fragrant, healing Catarrhozone
which is sent by the air you breathe
direct to the root of the trouble. Mr.
T. Y. MacVicar, of Yarmquth suffered for years from catarrh, and says;
'In my long experience with the
loathsome disease I never used any
remedy that> relieved and cured as
promptly as Catarrhozone. When my
nostrils were so stuffed up that I
couldn't breathe I found a few inhalations of Catarrhozone was sufficient to
ciear away the mucous. I am perfectly cured by Catarrhozone and free
from the disease entirely. Use only
Catarrhozone. Complete outfit $1.00;
trial size 25c. H. E. Woodland,
druggist.

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 Roeky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
Failed "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 five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car 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
plousant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

A Philanthropic Joke.
First a halfpenny then a gold piece
gave considerable amusement to a
small crowd In the Rue Dnunou, Paris.
The former coin was placed on the
pavement and lay untouched for an
hour and a half before It was picked
up by an old lady, who carefully placed
It In her reticule, despite the derisive
cheers which were accorded 'her by
those who were watching.
An American gentleman then placed
a twenty franc piece on the ground.and
as pedestrian nfter pedestrian passed
without seeing It, they were startled
by tbe uproarious laughter from doors
and windows. They stopped short,
looked confused and then hurried away
with Indignant glances at the merrymakers.
T(ie louls was at last picked up by a
bent arid feeble old man, who hobbled
off with his treasure amid enthusiastic
cheers.—London Mall.
A Good Motored Wife.
An English rustic whose wife waa
blessed with a remarkably even temper went over the wuy to a neighbor
one evening and suid:
"Neighbor, I just should like to see
my wife cross for once. I've tried all
I know, and I can't make her cross no
way."
"You can't mnke your wife cross?"
said his neighbor. "I wish I could make
mine anything else. But you just do
what I tell you, und If thnt won't
act nothing will. You bring her In
some night a lot of tbe erookedest
sticks for the Are you can got—them ns
won't He In no form—and see how she
makes out then."
The pieces of wood were accordingly
brought In, ns awkward and crooked
and contrnry ns could be found. The
man went away curly to work nnd at
noon returned to see tho result of bis
experiment.
He was greeted with a smiling face
and the gentle request:
"Tom, do bring mc In some more of
those crooked sticks if you can find
them. Thejr do Just lit around the kettle so nicely!"
Agamemnon's Tomb.
Agamemnon, it has been claimed, Is
a glorious myth, bnt those who hnvo
felt the charm of Homer's matchless
epic telling of his achievements at |
Troy will he loath to believe it. Let us
keep inviolate our belief in the heroes!
You may see today Agamemnon's
tomb nt Mycenae, Greece— Mycenae, to
which lie, as king, returned triumphant
from the conquest of Ilium, bringing
with him, as .Kschylus tells iu the
greatest of Greek tragedies, the fair
Cassandra. Agamemnon did not die of
old age, covered with honors, for thnt
was not the popular end of heroes In !
those strenuous days. Homer says ho j
was slain by .Eglsthus, lover of his
queen wife, kschylus tells that Queen
Clytemnestra killed both Agamemnon
and Cassandra.
A Troe Portrait.
The widow was taking her first look
at the bust of her beloved husbnnd.
Thc clay wns still damp. "Pray examine it well, liiiidiim," snid tha
sculptor. "If there is anything wrong
I enn alter it."
The widow looked at It with a mixture of sorrow and satisfaction.
"It Is just like hlni," she said, "a
perfect portrait—bla large nose—the
sign uf goodness." Here she burst Into tears. ■'•lib was so goodl Mnke tht
nose n little Inn**"!"
You consider
that a poorly-
printed job costs
just as much as
one t hat presents a neat and
tasty appear-*
ance, do you not
think that your
business   de
mands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—is in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Lot us estimate "on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
