Plans for the establishment of
another manufacturing enterprise of
considerable magnitude in 'this city
have been completed, aha1'* tf£e contract for the necessary buildings and

J. C. MacDottftld, lite Wfctter mechanic ofthe Granby s*netyer, and
A. J, McDonald are at the bead of
the new enterpriser" Ttaj"* pR)pose
to establish' a machine sK9j| near the
Boundary Iron Works forthe manufacture of steel furnace jackets, ore
cars, plans works, spouts, receivers,
sheet and structural steel works,
arid machinery and implements of
every description used in mines
Or smelters. T   tt
Mr. J. C. MacDonald stated last
night that the cost of the plant would
be about $7000, and that eight or
ten men would be employed at the
start. He also said that after they
get the works started they will be
prepared to furnish, mine and smelter managers with any implement
made of steel, thus obviating the
necessity of importing the tame.
The new shop will be located
near the Boundary'Iron WcMcb, but
will have no connection with that
institution, and as the MacDonalds
intend to confine their field of operation entirely to articles made of
steel, there will be no clash between
interests of the two firms. '** "'
The MacDonalds are the, pioneers
in this branch of business in this
settion of the country, and will un
doubtedly meet with deserved success. With the opening of new
mines and smelters, and"*enlargement of old ones, they should, find a
splendid market for their.products.

Jrdispatch from Ottawa says: The
following telegram has been received
by Hon. Frank Oliver, minister of
tbe interior:
: Sault'Ste. Marie, Ont., Feb. 24,
1906.—kon. Frank Oliver, MP,Ottawa: Successful demonstration on all
points stated in my memorandum on
electric smelting of Canadian iron
ores requiring investigation. ■ Output,
greater than figures adopted by Har-
bord in report of commission. Successful smelting of magnetite and de-
sulphurization of pig. Successful sub
stitution of charcoal and therefore of
peat coke for coke. Consumption of
electrode insignificant. Production of
nickel pig of fine quality from roasted
pyrchotite. Forty tons of pig have so
far been produced. Process admits of
immediate commercial application
Experiments will be completed in
about two weeks.
(Signed) Eugene Haanel,
>   Superintendent of Mines.
F. W. Harbord is consulting metallurgist of the Indian government and
was engaged by the Canadian government in connection with the work of
the commission which visited Europe
to obtain information on the above
subjects. The experiments of Mr. Harbord were to the effect that under certain conditions, which depended upon
the necessary electric energy aud price
of fuel, electric smelting could be
carried on at a cost about as cheap as
by the ordinary blast furnaces. The
fact that electric smelting could be
curried on was already established;
the question to be solved was jf it
could be made commercially successful. Dr. Haanel thinks that this has
now been established by the Soo experiments, which means a revolution
in the iron industry in Canada. It was
for carrying on this experiment that
Mr. Templeman procured a vote of
315,000 at the last session.
A party of prominent Great Northern officials arrived in' the city early
this morning by special train, on a
tour of inspection. The train proceeded at once to Phoenix, from
which place it returned'shortly after
3 this afternoon, and immediately
started for a run over the road to
Republic and Midway. The officials
will return to this city sometimes
during the night and lay over till tomorrow morning, when they will
return south. The members of the
party are: Benjamin Campbell,
fourth vice-president; F. I. Whitney, passenger traffic manager; W.
W. Broughton, freight traffic manager; H. M. Adams, assistant traffic
manager; F, E. Ward, general manager; Geo. E. Slade, general superintendent, and H. A. Kennedy,
assistant general superintendent.
Considerable excitement and indignation was created among the
citizens last night and this morning
by a man named Hnnshow making a
tour of the business houses and residences checking up the water and
light. It is suid thai, tbe man
showed a document to which was
attached the corporation seal and
bearing the signature of Miyor
Hutton as his authority for
his visitation; but as tbis work
had been performed by City Electrician Waterston a short time ago,
he was refused admittance to a
number of houses. This morning,
when tbe excitement was at its
height, Aid. Clements, chairman ol
the water und light committee, ran
across the man deprived him,of his
document. The affair will probably be ventilated at tbe council meeting Monday night. .
Tenders will be received until Wednesday, the 7th of March, for the
erection of a fire station; also for the
building of some six-foot sidewalk.
Flans and specifications may be seen

A New York dispatch says that
Jay P. Graces, of Spokane, manager
of the Granby Consolidated, has been
trying for.-.*yp months to induce ihe
Washington,,Watpr Rower compnny
to sell out.. The plan is to consolidate four, concerns, including the
Spokane ^Inland and the Washington Water Power companies, and
to capitalize the consolidation under
a huge coinpany which would supply funds, to extend the Spokane &
Inland and build other interurban
lines in Washington.
Tbe plan has not been favorably
received by the water power people.
No offer made by Mr. Graves has
even tempted them. They regard
Mr. Graves as a promoter only. His
principal it said, in New York, to be
the president of the William Howard Land <fe Lumber coinpany.
There is no probability thnt Mr.
Kraves can do anything.
The Washington Water Fo-vcr
company is controlled by a syndicate
of New York of tremendous wealth.
Four great estates—Astor, Low, Pier-
pont and Cutting—are in it. They
propose to stay in it and to develop
Spokane's resources. They state that
the development has only begun. The
present capacity is 16,000 horsepower,
which will be increased in two years
to nearly 1)0,000 horsepowor,includiiig
18,0n0 at Post Falls.
J. J. Hill is interested in the water
power company slightly, and has small
contracts for shop power in the Northern and the Great Northern in Spokane.   '
A lator New York dispatch says
that financial arrangements for merging the Graves group of electric roods
into a new 820,000,000 corporation
have heen completed. Mr, Graves is
now planning the development
of water in Spokane on a bi
scale. He is expected to return
to Spokane from New York in
about a fortnight.
The annual meeting of the British
Columbia Copper company was held a
few days ago at the company's offices
in New York, at which the annual report was submitted for the year ending November 30, 1905, showing net
profits for the year of 8102,907 and a
net profit and loss surplus of $181,-
828. The company owns and operates the Mother Lode mine in Dead-
wood camp and the smelter at Greenwood;
Presideut Underwood, in reviewing
the operations of the past year, said:
Against our profits for the past year
have been charged large sums for tho
extensive developments which have
been going on in preparation for trebling the output of the Mother Lode
mine. Development work has disclosed large bodies of ore of higher
grade than that on which we have
been operating. This ore will become available upon the completion of
the company's new smelting plant.
The machinery for this plant has all
been contracted for, deliveries to begin the latter part of March, and complete installation is expected- during
the coming summer. The new plant
will have a capacity of 50,000 tons per I
month, as compared with 18,000 tons
per tons with the present plant. Both
mines aud smelting plant will have
full electrical equipment.
The company is entirely free from
debt, with the exception of current
bills at mines and smelter. During
the year there has been sold 37,500
shares of treasury stock, the proceeds
of which havo been spent upon the
new properties and plant. It may be
stated that over $93,000 was spent
during the past year for development,
all of which was charged to operating
ex [lenses.
There are some indications of a
revival of activity in the building
line, but up to the present the only
blocks thut amount to anything are
being erected by tbe Grand Forks
correspondent of thc out-of-town
papers.
J. W. Jones has been awarded the
contract for grading a 1200-foot spur
on the Great Northern to the Belcher mine. It is reported that shipments of ore to the Granby smelter
will be made daily as soon as the
spur is completed.
A. D. McPhee, superintendent of
tbe McKinley mine in Franklin
camp, left yesterday for tbe Similkameen district, where be will inspect
a number of mining properties.
Win. Garrison and Patrick Kelly
left yesterday for tbe McKinley mine,
in Franklin camp, where they will
put tbe machinery and buildings in
shape for the early resumption of
development work. r

The agitation for a Greater Canada appears to ■ be growing. In To
ronto the other day a resolution was
passed at a meeting of the grain and
flour sections of the board of trade
favoring the admission of Newfoundland and the British West Indies
into the confederation of Canada.
Jn reply to a sensational report
from Vancouver to the effect that
the building of the Grand Trunk
Pacific from Edmonton west will be
delayed for some years, Mr. F. W.
Morse, manager of the road, has
made) the statement that the work
west of Edmonton is being prosecuted with as much vigor as is possible at this time of the year. He
further states that the Grand Trunk
Pacific will bave its railway completed from the east, extending
through to the Pacific coast well
within the time called for in the
contract entered into with the Dominion government, which requires
that it be ready for operation in
1911.
The Dominion free seed train
special hae completed its tour of the
Canadian Pacific railway Bystem,rtnd
officials believe the campaign for improvement of agricultural conditions
has been a big success. The train
stopped at 188 stations and covered
6640 miles, and 930 lectures were
delivered before an aggregate attendance of 20,9*19 people. The idea of
this special train originated with
Second Vice-President Whyte of the
Canadian Pacific railway, who takes
great interest in farming operations,
and who had observed the great loss
incurred through lax farming, which
was beginning to bave an important bearing on commercial interests of the country. The benefits, to
be derived from such an educative
school as the special train were so
impressed on Mr. Whyte by his observations, that the Canadian Pacific
railway volunteered to pay all expenses of furnishing, equipping and
operating the train, the government
providing thc expert lecturers.
All the testimony in the applicatio n
of the West Kootenay Power k Light
Co. for an amendment to its charter
has beon taken, and tho matter will
be decided by tho legislature in a few
days.

Never allows his horse to suffer
pain. He always uses Nerviline,which
is noted for curing stilliiess, rheumatism, swellings and strains. Nervilino
is just as good inside as outside. For
cramps, colic, and internal pain it's a'
perfect marvel. In the good racing
stables Nerviline is always used—because it makes better horses and
smaller veterinary bills. Twenty-five
cents buys a large bottlo of Nerviline;
try it.    Sold by all dealors.

At the Kaien inland land grant
deal investigation in ihe provincial
house at Victoria Tuesday morning
James Anderson told of negotiations
at Montreal with President Hays and
Manager Morse, of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, referred to earlier in the evidence of E. V. Bodwell. A close examination by J. A. Macdonald elicited the startling fact that an agreement had been drawn up signed by
Morse and Anderson, wherehy the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway company were to pay to Anderson and
Liu-sen the sum of $40,000 in cash in
the event of the Kaien island lands
being adopted as the terminus for the
railway. Anderson conduct id tl e ne
gotiations on behalf of Larsen and
himself, holding Larsen's power of attorney for that express purpose. Subsequently upon Anderson returning
west, and visiting Larsen at Spokane,
this agreement was cancelled, Larsen
deciding that it was not advisable to
accept cash from the company.
What alternative agreement was
arrived at to induce Anderson to
forego his share in the $40,000 was
not disclosed. Anderson said that
Bodwell knew of this agreement, and
was not sure that he, Bodwell, drew
up the agreement. In any event he
saw it before it was signed.
W. S. Gore, formerly deputy chief
commissioner, was examined. He had
no light to throw upon the subject
matter of the enquiry. He was not
consulted regarding Bodwell's application for Kaien island lands.
Mr. Morse has wired that owing to
the absence of Mr. Hays in England
he cannot leave for the west, and he
asks to be excused.
Mr. Macdonald thinks that Morse
should be called, and the committee
hive deferred their final decision in
the matter pending advice from the
attorney-general.
