NEWS OFTHE CITY
Granby Smelter Sunday
Morning
Over 300 men are now employed
on the Kettle Valley line grade between this city and Bannock, and
by the 15th inst. it is expected that
at leaBt 500 men will be at work.
The gaps in' the grade between
Smelter lake and the city limits are
diminishing rapidly, and a few
weeks' more work will see a respectable stretch of finished roadbed
Good progress is being made on the
16-foot deep cut near Miller's ranch,
and work on the 15 foot fill across
the flat on this side ot the ranch is
also being satisfactorily advanced.
On this side of the flat the grade has
been completed up to Mr. Atwood's
lots at Fifth street. The right of
way through this property has not
yet been secured, and it is more
than probable that arbitration will
have to be resorted to in this matter.
Grading camps have been estab-
lishcd as far north as Bannock,
Chas. McAllister and his partner
having pitched their tents on Mr.
Brown's townsite.
Eastern Townships Bank Purchase Valuable Real
Estate
About a hundred feet of the foundation of the big flume at the Granby
smelter collapsed early Sunday morning, necessitating the closing down of
three of the furnaces. The balance of
the furnaces were blown out Monday
morning for the holidays.
The Eastern Townships bank has
purchased from L. A. Manly the
property on the corner of Bridge
and First streets, on which the Eastern Townships bank and the British
American Trust company's buildings are at present located. The
consideration has not been made
public, hut it is understood to have
b.'cn a substantial one. The pur
chaser will, when occasion demands
it, erect a fine bank building on the
property.
The Vancouver, Victoria k Eastern
will, it is expected, be operating
freight and passenger trains between
Midway and Oroville by Oteober 1.
The officials of the road express the
hope that they will have that branch
of the line in operation by September
1, but railway men do not seem to
think it is practicable.
It is about 60 miles from Midway
to Oroville. The grading between
the two points is practically completed. There is some surfacing to be
done, but the construction gang is so
f ir ahead of the steel laying crew that
the latter will not lie delayed in their
work.
Oil an average, one mile a day of
track laying is considered good work.
About ten miles have been laid west
from Midway, leaving about fifteen
miles to be spiked down to connect
the two points. If the average of
one mile a day is maintained by the
steel crews the track will have been
laid before September 1. But after
the rails are down comes the ballasting, which takes more time then laying steel.
If the Vancouver, Victoria k Last
ern had but to lay rails the road
would be in opei ation between Midway and Oroville about September 1,
but the ballusting will probably consume an extra month.
About forty miles of the proposed
road from Oroville to Princeton have
been graded. Princeton is in the
heart of the Similkameen country,
Mr. Hill's intentions being to develop
the enormous coal beds in that section of British Columbia.
Just as soon as the road between
Midway and Oroville is in operation
the company will concentrate all its
energies on the OrovillePrineeton extension. The intension is to do as
much work this year as possible, with

Canada can  hold  its own with any
Other part of the world.    These are
nickle and mica.    India is Canada's'
chief  competitor in mica, but cannot
for many years more continne to be a
serious opponent, owing to  the  fact
that the snrface, deposits of  Bengal
are being gradually exhausted,  and
deep mining would place the mica industry of that large province on prac-
ically the same plane as it is in Quebec.    At present, the cheap  woman
and  child labor of  India gives  that
country an unhealthy pull as compared to our more advanced views.
New  Caledonia, the convict island
in  possession  of  France, is Canada's
chief competitor in the production of
nickel, but since the wonderful development in the Sudbury district. New
Caledonia   has  had  to  take   second
place.    The Sudbury district is today
the only portion of the Dominion in
which  nickel  is  being worked  on  a
large scale, bqt a study of the geologi
cal survey reports make it clear that
there are great possibilities of other
rich nickel deposits being discovered.
This useful metal which, owing to
its increased use in the manufacture
of armour-plating, is being more
sought after day by day, is likely to
have another boom due to a very different cause. The government of India have, for some time, been considering the possibility of substituting
nickel for copper coins. Last summer
the master of the Calcutta mint paid
a visit to the Sudbury mines and has,
it is understood, reported favorable on
the suggested conversion. What the
Indian government 1 as decided to do
in this matter is not definitely known,
but to judge from the India news
papers, there seems a strong probability of the copper coins being very
largely withdrawn.
Any new deposit of nickel must
therefor attract more than ordinary
interest, and such interest is certainly
inspired by reading of the discovery
lately made in the Fraser river.
In working the material obtained
in dredging for gold some two miles
below Lillooet, B. C, it was found
that a fine, heavy greyish sand with a
metallic aspect remained after the
clean-up.
A sample of this sand was sent to
Dr. Hoffmann, chemist of the geological survey, for examination, and was
found by the hiin to consist essentially of an iron-nickel alloy with scales
of platinum, grains of the rare metal
iridosmine, gold, muguctite, gurnet
and quartz.
The nickel alloy and platinum were
nearly in equal proportions and constituted about 90 per cent of the
whole.
Only two occurrences of similar
minerals are known, one in New Zealand and the other in Italy. It is
proposed to call this new mineral
sousite after Mr. F. Soues, who sent
the sample for identification.
The large aipount of platinum in
these sands and the ease with which
the nickel alloy may be separated by
dissolving in nitric acid, leads to the
hope that we have here a new source
of this valuable metal.

in as a spectial policeman during tha
illness of Chief Savage. On the recovery of the chief, Mr. Dinsmore
will act as day policeman.
Miss Edna Traunweiser, who has
been attending sehool at" Calgary,
Alta., returned to the city this week
and will spend tho summer vacation
with her parents.
At about 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon a portion of the roof ,on the
south side of the Granby smelter fell
in, but fortunately none of the workmen were injured.

Mrs. W; B. Cochrane left yesterday for a six weeks' visit with relatives and friends in Vernon.
The silver medal presented by the
Eastern Townships bank for the
pupil obtaining the highest number

The American residents of the
city havetaken up a subscription to
which a number of Canadians have
contributed, for a display of fire
works on the evening of the 4-th,
and a number of the latest and
most artistic pieces has been ordered
from Spokane. The display will be
made from the/hill near Dr. Averill's
residence.
The preliminary hearing of L. Canty, arrested last week on suspicion of
being implicated in an attempted
burglary at the Winnipeg hotel, came
up before Police Magistrate Cochrane
Friday afternoon, but was postponed
until the following day in order to allow accused to secure counsel. At
the hearing Saturday the ease was
remanded until Fiiday next, owing to
the illness of Chief of Police Savage.
Bail was fixed a i 1000.
James Henniger arrived in thi
city Sunday evening from Alham
bra, Springs, Mont., and will visit
at the home of his son, E. C. Hen
iger, for a week or ten days. Mr.
Henniger lives in Maitland, Nova
Scotia, and he will make his return
journey home via Los Angeles and
Arizonia.
It is announced by A. B. W.
Hodges, superintendent of the Granby Consolidated, that from this forward, work will be steadily prosecuted on the new main shaft of the
Granby mines, which it is estimated
will cost the company about 8100,-
000 whon finished and in working
order. For some months two diamond drills have been steadily at
work on the surface and underground in the Granby mines, determining where it was best to sink
this permanent shaft, and the location selected is not far from the big
air compressor building, where both
the Great Northern and Canadian
Pacific railway can run spurs to the
new crusher and ore bins. The
shaft will have three compartments,
two of which will be forthe balanced
five ton loads that will be carried.
The work of getting the shaft started
was begun last week on the surface
and forces o.1 men are also at work
raising from 300 and 400 foot levels
in the mine, to connect with the
miners working down from the surface.
The free opening dance last Friday
night, given by the fire boys of the
West end in their new hall, was a
social success, about 150 persons being present. Both floors of the building were used for dancing by the gay
throng, and some who were unfortunate enough to come a bit late
proved themselves masters of circumstance by organizing a stag dance on
the approach and in the street, where
came merry music from the instruments in the master hands of Messrs.
Dewdney, Sheedy and Thomas, and
Mrs. Miller. The ladies showed their
appreciation of the happy affair by
serving a "handout" supper at midnight that was a credit to them and a
mighty good thing to all present.
Not till early in the morning did the
crowd wend its way homeward, and a
more satisfied people would be hard
to find than the East and West end-
ers who participated in the event.
Geo. A. Fraser, Frank Fritz and
Joe Pringle left for Thunder Hill
camp Saturday morning on a prospecting tour.
Geo. Chappie last week received a
letter from his wife, who is at present
in Minneapolis, stating that Dr. Todd,
a noted eye specialist of that city, had
performed a delicate operation on one
<.f the eyes of the six-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chappie. The
operation was entirely successful, und
the patient is now gradually improving.

According to the Vancouver World,
some interesting developments may be

dray lots affair. The World says:
"We understand that neither of the

royal commissioners in the case of the
people vs. the Lands and Works de-"
partment, and that the choice will
probably fall upon Judge Lampinan
or Judge Harrison. Either of these
gentlemen will he acceptable to the
World. All that i.s asked is a fair
and impartial hearing before a fair
and impartial commission. For the
present further comment is reserved

interests of the people are involved
and in support of which much evidence of a startling character will be
offered by witnesses of the highest
character, whose words are as good us

A Quebec dispatch states that over
45,000 immigrants have landed at
that plnce since navigation opened
the first week in May, and on the
whole they are easily the finest class
of immigrants that have ever come
into the Dominion by the St. Lawrence. In number this is 15,000 in
f xcess of the same period lust year,
but the greatest difference is in the
class of immigrants that have been
secured this year. In former years
at least 00 per cent were from the
Continental countries, while this
while this yenr such a very large
proportion of the immigrants have
come from different parts of Grent
Britain that it cannot be said that
over 6 per cent are from the European countries. A prominent government immigration official expressed his opinion that over 90 per
cent of those who have arrived so
far this year are from England,
Scotland and Ireland, and the
great majority of them were young
men and women, who were on their
way to mnke homes for themselves

A big ore body has been struck in
the Pathfinder mine in the east drift
and another shaft on the property is
in 123 feet of ore. It is now regarded as certain that the Granby company will take up the bond on ' the
property for §110,000, the first payment $15,000 being due on October
15. It is stated that it has at last
been found that the track of the

one certain cure is Catarrhozone; it
cures because it destroys the cause ol
the disease, cures thoroughly because
it lines wherever the catarrh is, euro
every case because its vapor destrov*
