FRANKLIN NEWS
Fiunklin. B. C, Sept. 9—It is
understood that diamond drilling at
the McKinley will be resumed shortly. This well known property is
under bond to the McKinley Mines,
Ltd., a corporation in which F. Aug.
Heinze, the Butte mining magnate,
owns the controlling interest.
The Dominion Copper company
will soon increase the force employ
ed at the Gloucester group which it
bonded several months ago. As the
accomodation at the mine is limited,
new cabins will be erected before
winter seta in. The company recently made the first payment of
$.1,000 on account of bond.
Rich galena ore was recently uncovered on the Banner claim on Ban
mountain at a point about 400 feet
north of the shaft. Supt. McPhee
is greatly encouraged over the out
look of this property which is under
bond to the McKinley Mines, Ltd.
Considerable development work
will be done this fall on the M, S.
claim located on the northern slope
of Banner mountain and owned by
A. Erskine Smith & Co. The property has a phenomenal surface
showing. Copper ore from a small
shaft is said to have yielded assay
values of $40 per ton. It is proposed to employ a- force of ten men.
The M. S. iB believed to' have the
same lead as the Maple Leaf from
which it is less then one thousand
feet distant.
The union group adjoining the
Maple Leaf on Banner mountain has
one of the prettiest showings in the
camp. A 30-foot cut shows solid
galena from end to end. The same
character of ore was recently uncovered at a point .'100 feet farther down
the hill.
This group comprises the Union
and I'aper Dollar claims and the
Maple Leaf fraction. It is owned
by Mike McDonnel, Pat McGinnis,
and Louis Johnson and J. C. Henderson, all of Kholt.
The Maple Leaf continues to show
decided improvement each succeeding week. It continues to attract
many visitors, all of whom are enthusiastic over the remarkable showings Five open cuts varying in
length from thirty to ninety feet are
in solid high grade ore. in one
working fur a distance of twenty-five
feet by actual measurement the
chalcopyrite assays 22 per cent copper, besides the gold and silver values. The same high grade ore lias
also been uncovered in a deep open
cut along the trend of the ore zone
SOU feet distant in a north westerly
direction. "A mountain of ore" is
the verdict of every visitor. The
mine can be worked by tunnels and
glory holes. The Maple Leaf is now
in a position to ship 300 tons of ore
daily. It will be e great mine long
before the railway reaches here next
summer.
Supt. Al. Stewart recently added
liue miners to the working force
The group is under bond to Geo. A.
MacLeod of Grand Forks. It will
be examined shortly by several eminent mining experts.
Mrs. L. A. Snyder, formerly of
Nelson, enjoys the distinction of being the first lady resident of Fiunklin.
Her husband runs a tri-weekjy stage
service between Grand Forks and the
great copper camp. Mrs. Snyder
reached Franklin on F'iday with her
child and husband. They now occupy
a comfortable house which Sir. Snyder recently erected on McKinley
uvenue.
Last week the semi-annual election
of officers for the Phoenix Miners'
Union No. 8 took place, the result be
ing as follows: President, W.J. Lout-
tit; vice-president, John Mclverjfiiian-
cial secretary,Malter Monison; recording secretary, Carlton H. Cook; assistant recording secretary, David
Speare; treasurer, Hugh Reid; conductor, Neil McBeth; warden, Walter
Cook. The installation will occur at
the first meeting in October.
NEWS OFTHE CITY
Small   Boy  Barely   Escapes
Being Seriously Injured
by a Bear
No such opportunity to see a bi
parade, while comfortably seated, lias
ever been offered in the Northwest as
that proposed on Carnival night, September 24, at the Spokane Interstate
fair. The entire procession will bu
held on the race track in front of the
huge grand stand. Spectators will
be charged ten cents admission to the
grounds and ten cents for grand stand
seats. They will see the parade enter
the track from the east side, pass in
front of the stand and continue on
the half mile track, making the complete circle twice. Every part of the
procession will be in full view all the
time.
Houses are so scarce in Phoenix
that at least two families are living in
the churches.
Annual  Field Sports of the
Public School Were Very
Successful
Bay. The consideration is $15,000
with the first payment duo in six
months. Work on the property will
probably be commenced in a few
weeks. The Mavis has been worked
to sufficient extent to demonstrate
the existence of ore bodies in paying
quantities. The lead is believed to
be the same as that of the Bay workings, the two being only 300 feet
apart. A small shipment was miiAe
last September, the returns being
about SI00 per ton.
Report That Construction Is
to Be Resumed at
Once
An itinerant bear tamer struck
the town yesterday with a couple of
tame bears, and he gave a few street
exhibitions of the animals' intelligence, defraying his expenses by
taking up collections. The crowd
of street urchins that gathered
jostled one of Scotty Gilmour's boys
too close to one of the lieni's, and he
was given the hug and scare of bis
life. He can't bear to look at a bear
now.
The annual field sports of the Bchlo-
ars uf the public school were held on
the school grounds last Saturday, and
was attended by nearly every pupil of
the school, besides the staff of iustruc
tors, trustees and a large number of
parents and citizens. A largo program of athletic sports was successfully carried out, and the little ones enjoyed themselves hugely. The medal
presented by the Eastern Townshi| s
bank to the pupil having the largest
nuniher of marks at the annual exam
inations for promotion from jurior to
senior grades, which was won by Mis
Ethel Cook this year, was presented
to the winner, Judge Clement making
the presentation speech on behalf of
the trustees. Last year this medal
was won by Hev. Manuel's son. The
Eastern Townships bank hang these
medals up annually in all cities in the
Dominion in which they have branches
as an incentive to the scholars.
The Grand Forks band will give a
grand ball in the opera house on
Thursday evening, September, 27th.
The following committee on arrangements has been appointed: W. Meagher, D. Thomas, A. C. Walganialt,
H. Sheedy and Walter Dewdney.
The local hive of the Ladies of the
Maccabees will give a ball in Eagles'
Hall on Thursday evening, September
13th. The music will be furnished
by A. C. Walgamott, leader of the
Grand Forks orchestra, accompanied
by Mrs. Disney. Supper will be served in the hall. Over sixty tickets
had been sold up t*i last night.
James McAi'dle, late proprietor of
the Black Hawk livery stable, yesterday purchased J. W. Morrison's interest in the Morrison-Anderson business
block ill Phoenix. The consideration
was $4,500.
The sawmill at Cascade shipped
during August, KO carloads of ties,
timber and lumber.
A. Erskine Smith it Co. this week
purchased the blachsmitli shop belonging to the estate of J. M. Simpson.
The shop will lie reopened as soon as
a blacksmith can be secured.
L. A. Manly returned last night
from a week's trip through the Similkameen country.
Eastern and European Capital Said to Be Behind
the Road
A. S. Echert, of Spokane, representing linuncial interests there, was in
Greenwood last week and negotiated
a working bond with E. T. Wickwire
for the Mavis mine, which adjoins the
Mr. Chappie's Motocycle
Mr. Geo. Chappie has received a
new motocycle. The Sun had intended to chronicle this fact last
week ; but the fact is, since the
arrival of the machine Mr. Chappie
has been doing so much scorching
that it has been imtiossible to get a
good view of it. We were, therefore,
i.i doubt, whetli"!' to give Mr. Chappie uedit for having imported an
automobile or a motocycle. A single in-1:iiii•<■ will illustrate the tcrri-
fi i piiee at which he has heen traveling: On Lahor day he left thc city
for Curlew lake an hour and a half
after th" excursion train, and arrived at nis destin ition an hour and
a half ahead of it. That was traveling some—anil some more : because
it is reported that the train made a
mile a minute. The other day,
however, he met with an accident.
It was a fortunate accident for The
Sun, because it afforded us an opportunity to inspect the machine.
While running up Winnipeg avenue
he collided wilh the sprinkling cart.
Il was the most excusable mishap
imaginable. The street was quite
dusty, and under the present civic
government the sprinkling cart is
supposed to be on duty only after
heavy shower. Mr. Chappie mistook
the water wagon for an approaching
rainstorm (the horses and front part
of the rig being completely hidden
by the dust), and the driver of the
water cart thought that the. peculiar buzzing sound of tbe motocycle
indicated that the "juice" had been
turned on on the new Bonnington
Falls power line.
The motocycle escaped being
damaged. While Mr. Ciiapple assisted the driver to reassemble the
water cart, we gleaned the following
facts concerning the machine:
The motocycle was made by the
H'lidee Manufacturing company of
Springfield, Mass., and cost, f.o.b. at
factory, $210. The freight toGrand
Forks was only $40. The tri-car
attachment, which permits of carrying a passenger in front In thc most
comfortable manner, cost $125.
The machine is culled the Indian,
ind has a speed of from 5 to .r>0
miles per hour ; it will climb any
grade that his yet been discovered
in the Boundary, Its motive power
is furnished by a Iledstrom air-
cooled 2J horsepower motor, and
carries u sufficient quantity of gasolene for a 100-mile run. Il weighs
only 115 pounds. The rider has at
all times perfect control over the
machine, as it is operated by a
patented leverless, double grip, twist-
of-the-wrist system. The right grip
controls the electrical sparks and exhaust valve, nnd the left grip controls the throttle. The machine is
especially adapted for traveling over
over mountain trails.
It is expected that active construction of the Midway k Vernon will be
recommenced in a very short time.
Ralph Smailes and L. M. Rice, the
well known railway engineer, reached
Midway Saturday evening. The expert of a big eastern construction company is now nn the ground checking
up the reports put in by the promoters of the road. As soon as he finishes his work, this company backed
by European capital will build the
road in the shortest possible time.        •
The Great Northern bas extended
the time limit on its eastern excursion
tiekts, on sale October 17-23, and October 24th November 1st, to November Kith.
Richard 1'. Morgan, superintendent
of the Great Northern's Spokane Falls
and Northern system, was in the
Boundary last week with his private
ear. He was accompanied by Assist*
ano Superintendent Smith.
A brakeman was killed on the.S.F.
k N. Wednesday by a passenger train
down the line. The mas was lying
asleep with liis head on the rail.
George W. Cornish, of Greenwood,
has a hobby for mineral exhibits.
Years ago, says the Greenwood Ledge,
be had charge of the mineral exhibits
from Queensland shown in London
anil Glasgow. At present he is arranging to take a collection of the
ores from Greenwood and all surrounding camps to the fairs at Nelson and
Spokane. In onV to defray the expenses in connection wilh the collection, and exhibition of Boundary ores
the I'hoenix city council has already
granted $75 and it is expected that
the Greenwood council will make a
similar or larger grant. The business
men of I'bocnix, Greenwood and other
Boundary towns, together with some
of the mining companies will no doubt
contribute liberally towards this highly efficient manner of showing thousands of people what the mountains
contain in and around the coming
great smelting and mining towns nf
Grand Forks, I'hoenix and Greenwood. Mr. Cornish seeks no remuneration for his time expended iu connection with Ibis laudable way of advertising our staple goods, and merely
looks to the enterprising people of the
Boundary camps to supply the few
hundred dollars necessary to defray
the expenses. The samples of ore
will be in the form nf large specimens
weighing from sixty to one hundred
pounds, and after the fairs are over
many of these samples will he placed
upon permanent exhibition in the
Chamber of Commerce of Spokane.
Here is a chance to advertise the
Boundary that everyone should push
along, both with words and money.
Geo. L. Wolf,  of Republic,  wus a
business visitor in the city this week. (ftp Ebimtng *§un

The Dominion Government last
Saturday issued a proclamation fixing
Thursday, October 28, as Thanksgiving day.
The financial condition of the Dominion shows a revenue of $13,8!*0,-
416 for August and July, ah increase
Of 41,756,0(55 over the same period of
last year, There was an increase in expenditure of a million and a quarter,
and a decrease in capital expenditure
of 83BO.UOO.
The revenue of Canada continues
to grow,   says  the  Vtctoria Times.
We have become so accustomed to reports of monthly increases that an announcement of a decline in receipts

this city before leaving. Mr. Austin
is a • gentleman well posted in the
metallurgical world, whose business is
largely that of making investigations
for groups of capitalists in all parts of
the world.
This was Mr. Austin's fifth visit to
British Columbia, having made a trip
to the Kootenays for a London corporation in 1885, to report on a property near the well known Blue Bell
lead mine, opposite Ainswortb on
Kootenay lake, Up which he traveled
in a dugout with an Indian. In the
early nineties he again visited the
Kootenays, going to what was then
Trail Creek camp, the Lelloi initio
having a shaft at that time hut 70
feet in depth. In lS9(i Mr. Austin
once more visited this province, inspecting among other properties in the
Boundary, the well known City of
Paris group in White's camp. Then
again in the spring nf 1905, Ml',
Austin visited the Granby group nf
mines at I'lioenix, making an exhaustive examination. This was at the
same time that M. M. Johnson, of
Salt Lake City made his first examin
ation of the Dominion group in Phoenix camp.
Regarding the Granby smelter Mr,
Austin said: "I was delighted with
the way things nre running. (If

Great Specialists in stomach Catarrh
Though often they fail to give even
temporary relief, Mr. W Seymour
of Huntsville, Out., cured himself
with Fejrozone. "My trouble, lie says,
was chronic caiarrh of the stomach.
There was constant bad t4iste in my
mouth, 1 was costive and usually
livuseated besore ami aster meals, I
also hail a gnawing sensation in the
stomach. Ferrozone gave me great
relief, and I also used Catarrhozone
which is good for catarrh. Although
I took a number of boxes of Ferrozone
I gut back my health anil today am
quite well." For stomach catarrh,
indigestion and kindred disorders
nothing equals Ferrozone. In a thousand cases it has proved a wonderful
success Try it yourself, 5Uc per box
