HAD A GOOD TIME
Spokane Chamber of Commerce Delegation Enjoyed
Their Visit
One Hundred and Fifty Ban-
quetted at the Yale
Hotel
The touring members of the Spokane chamber of commerce—125
strong—arrived at the Granby smelter, after visiting the mines in Phoenix camp, shortly after X> o'clock
Wednesday evening. They were
met and welcomed at that point by
the citizens' reception committee
and the smelter officials.
Immediately on the arrival of the
train, the visitors were taken in
hand by Mr. Hodges, general superintendent of the big reduction plant,
and his officers, and they were
shown every process of converting
the raw ore into 98 per cent pure
blister copper. They were the most
interested people that have visited
the smelter, for some time, and tbey
were not backward in asking questions concerning any process of
smelting that puzzled them.
The members of the committee endeavored—and attained a high de*
gree of success—to explain everything. The converter room and tbe
"tapping" process proved the two
greatest attractions. It took nearly
an hour to "do" the smelter, after
which the entire delegation, headed
by the Inland Kmpire band of Spokane, marched to the Yale hotel.
Carriages were provided for the
ladies of the party and the ladies
reception committee.
At 7:30 in the evening a banquet
was tendered tbe visitors at tbe
Yale. Nearly 150 guests filed into
the spacious dining room, which
had been beautifully decorated with
iiags and bunting, and luscious specimens of the products of the orchard were suspended above each
table. The tables were beautified
with some of the florist's prettiest
varieties, shedding their fragrance
through the entire room. An ex.
cellent dinner was served to this vast
concourse without a hitch, which
speaks volumes for the capacity of
this popular house. During the
serving of the courses the feeling
of good, fellowship that prevailed was
enhanced by sweet muiic by the
Spokane band and the recently or*
ganized Grand Forks orchestra.
Tbe visitors praised the latter by
according tbem unstinted applause.
At tbe conclusion of tbe repast tbe
guests arose and sang "God Save
tbe King." Tbe cigars were then
brought in.
Mr. Wm. Spier, who acted as
toastmaster, made a brief but appropriate address of welcome. He
dwelt on the fact that Spokane capi-
Ul and energy had been mainly instrumental in developing the resources of the Boundary country.
The interests of tha two sections
were practically the same. Ha concluded his remarks by saying that
tonight Spokane owned Grand Forks.
Mr. T. Ham, vice-president of the
Spokane chamber of commerce,
spoke to the toast in honor of that
organization. . Mr. Ham prefaced
his speech by exclaiming, "Long
may King Edward reign." He did
not marvel that Spokane was growing after visiting the splendid territory tributary to it. Spokane now
bad a population of 80,000 ; if the
boosters had their wish fulfilled, it
would soon be 150,000, There was
a man present tonight to whose fore
sight and energy the Boundary
owed more than to any other individual—a man who had practically
developed the mineral resources f
the district. If his modesty would
permit him to speak, he could tell
many tales of early struggles and
triumphs. That man was Jay P.
Graves, general manager of the
Granby smelter.    [Applause.]
Mr. Graves was loudlv called on
for a speech. He arose and said
that, as a resident of Grand Forks,
he took pleasure in welcoming the
members of the Spokane chamber of
commerce to the eity. The Grunby
coinpany had accomplished many
things, but he was not entitled til all
the credit for the success it had at
tained. His fellow officers—Messrs.
Hodges, Williams and Wooster—
had also rendered invaluable Bervice,
and were entitled to a share of the
praise for the present high standing
of the company.
Mr. A. B. W. Hodges, general
superintendent of the Granby company, on being called on for a
speech, said that all the boosters did
not live in Spokane. We had a
pretty good brand of that genus
right here in the Boundary. While
the 150,000 club was boosting for
Spokane, the Boundary boosters
were digging the ore out of the
mountains and making 98 percent
pure blister copper. That was the
best kind of boosting. Seven yeara
ago this ha<l been a howling wilderness. Now one smelter alone treated 30O0 tons of ore per diem. The
Granby smelter was the third largest
reduction works on the American
continent. He spoke very optimistically of the mining and smelting
industry in the Boundary, and predicted great things for tbe future.
Dr. Gamble, of Spokane, responded to the toast, "The Inland
Empire." He had had his eyes
opened today. He had Been things
that he had not dreamed existed
within a thousand miles of Spokane.
With such a magnificent territory to
draw from, he no longer marveled
tbat Spokane was great. The doctor spoke at some length, and gave a
graphic history of the Pacific northwest from the early '80's down to the
present day.
Mr. Ham proposed the toast,
"The City of Grand Forks," to which
David Whiteside responded. Mr.
Whiteside gave a history, past and
present, of the city, and recounted
our enviable surroundings and the
undeveloped resources of the dis
trict. He said the only thing the
citizens had against Mr. Hodges was
this: Whenever the expectations
of the people wore raised to a high
pitch by announcements of enlargements of the smelter and increased
crews, along came Mr. Hodges, with
his well known mechanical genius,
and invented some device that cut
down tbe force about a hundred men.
Mr. Spier announced tbat this
concluded the toast list, and the
band played "The Star Spangled
Banner," after which the guests filed
oot ot tiie dining room into the big
rotundo,    where    they    mingled
with the citizens generally for a
couple of hours, gaining much valuable information concerning the resources of the district. At 11 :'I0 the
last bussload of visitors left for the
Great Northern station, and at 12
o'clock the special train pulled out
for Nelson.
The verandah of the Yale was
brilliantly illuminated with myriads
of electric lights, lending an enchanting appearance to the house.
Three or four electric light arches
bad also been strung across Bridge
street, illumining that thoroughfare
to perfection. The various committees who had chirge of the entertainment are to be congratulated for
the* thoroughness with which they
performed their several duties. The
ladies' committee also rendered
valuable assistance in entertaining
the lady members of the visiting
delegation.

steel smelter building. It is quite an
interesting sight to watch the heavy
machinery in operation, which cuts
an., punches holes through inch thick
steel as easily as if it were a cardboard.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 11,   190*3
Mr. Carnegie's suggestion of an international entente concerning spelling reform is as sensible as tardy.
Any radical change in orthography
affecting America merely will seem
eccentric, for the issue at bottom is
neither pedagogical nor practical, but
literary. The present spelling is accepted simply because of its associations, and a new spelling will be tolerable only if it is promulgated under
weighty literary or academic auspices.
For example, the reformed spelling of
German gained its partial victory because a number of academic periodicals simultaneously agreed upon its
adoption. If the British quarterlies
and three or four great London publishers can be converted, the right beginning at least will have been made.
England is still the custodian of the
literary language, and no radical
change will gain authority without
her good will. Moreover, even if it
were practicable, to ir crease the slight
cleavage between the English of Eng
land and that of America would be
unfortunate. Already such slight
matters as the Anglo-Norman "ours"
and a "g" more or less in "waggon"
prevent the free use of American
stereotyped plates in England. To
raise a prejudice to an embargo would
be the first result of the well meaning
but preposterous campaign of the reformers. Simplified spelling, if you
will, gentlemen, but let not simplicity
degenerate into a crass and bumptious
disregard of international emenities.—

The McDonell Dominion survey party arrived in Edmonton Wendnesdav
and report having made a discovery of
gold in the Pease river country, *'I7
miles below Fort St. John, and about
17 miles from the Alberta-British Columbia boundary. The samples of the
rock are peculiar, being a slute shale,
containing minute particles of gold,
which, by the crudest assays, give 87
to $32 per ton. The party is taking
a large number of usmples to Ottawa
to get a reliable assay made. A number of claims ware staked.
An editor remarks: "editing a
newspaper is a nice thing. If we
publish 'jokes the people say we are
rattle brained. If we do not publish
original matter they say we don't give
them enough selections. If we give
them selections they say we are too
lazy to write. If we don't go to churoh
we are heathens. If we do we are
hypocrites. If we remain at the office we ought to be out looking for
news items. If we go out then we
are not attending to business. If we
wear old clothes they laugh ut us. If
we wear good clothes they say we have
a pull. Now, what are we to do? Just
us likely as not some one will say that
we stole this from an exchange. So
we did."

ALL OVER THE BOUNDARY
Mr. S. Hill, son-in-law of James J.
Hill, accompanied hy several friends,
arrived in the Boundary recently, for
tho purpose of a few weeks hunting and fishing in the country west of
Midway. The party traveled from
Spokane in James J. Hill's private
car, Supt. Morgan's private car also
being attached. On the arrival of the
passenger train at Midway the two
c irs were detached and a special engine was coupled on, ami after going
through the necessary Customs formal-
ties, the visitors started over the new
steel to Mlnooster, where the train
was placed on a side track and tho
party spent a day or two camping,
after which they drove west. Mrs.
S. Hill, who is the daughter of President James J. Hill, will arrive shortly anil will join her husband.
While C. P. R. officials are reticent
as to future movomer.ts, it may be accepted for a fact that the railroad
will reach Aspen Grove early next
year, says the Nicola Herald. A further eight miles of construction has
been let, which would bring the road
to Quilchena, and the surveyors are
busy on the location line between
that point and Aspen Grove. While
some difficulty is being found in obtaining an easy grade between Quilchena and Aspen Groyc, there is every
leason to believe that a line for a

When
You consider
that a poorly
printed job costs
just as much as
one that presents a neat and
tasty appearance, do you not
think that your
bu9i ne ss demands the latter kind ?
Good Printing—the kind we do—ia in itself
an advertisement, and a trial order will convince
you that our stock and workmanship are of the
best. Let us estimate on your order. We guarantee satisfaction.
AS YOU LIKL IT
Of course the water wagon was to
blame.
Mud, mud, mud!     What a delightful change!
The ice cream season is gasping
for breath. How sweet its chath
must bo
Evidently all the minstrels from
the four corners of the earth have got
their eyes on Grand Forks.
The water wagon and the Spokane
Chamber of Commerce was entirely
too much even for the heavens and
they wept and are still weeping.
Yes, thank you, our own orchestra is ull O. K., anil they proved it
most conclusively at the Yale on
Weiliu srlny night. Keep your
change, please.
There is no denying the fact thnt
old Uncle Samuel is a cheerful and
enterprising advertiser. Just look at
the way they are boosting the Spo
kane fair just now.
This is the time of year when
budding youth tearfully figures to
ascertain how many overcoats' worth
of ice cream he spent with his best
girl during the dusty slimmer time.
If a man goes into half a dozen
stores in Grand Eorks and succeeds
in jewing down each keeper from
four bits to forty cents what is he?
A prixe.lighter, of course. Mr. Tani-
bo will now sing "I've Got Money in
the Banks of the Wabash."
While the efficient musicians of
''Sunny Old Spokane" were delighting the vast multitude at the Yale
on Wednesday evening a bystander
made this remark: "If I could play
like them fellers I wouldn't do another tap of work!" All play and
no work, eh? What is work, anyway?
Great Specialists In stomach Catarrh
Though often they fail to give even
temporary relief, Mr. W Seymour
of .Huntsville, Ont., cuied himself
with FeJiozone. "My trouble, he says,
was chronic cajarrli of the stomach.
There was constant bad laste in my
mouth, I was costive and usually
nauseated besore auil aster meals, I
also had 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 got back my health and 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, 50c per box
at all dealers.
