Semi-Weekly™? 1.00 Per Year in Advance
STILL MID
Status of the Coal Miners'
Strike in East Kootenay
Unchanged
Granby Has Made Vrrange*
ments for CoKe From
Blairmore
There is no change in the strike
of tbe coal miners in the East Kootenay. The men are still out, and
many of them are leaving the Coal
Creek and Michel camps, indicating
that they see very little prospect of
an early settlement.
At the Granby smelter coke is still
arriving, and no additional furnaces
have been blown out since our last
issue. The ones closed down during the early part of the week will
materially reduce the output of the
mines and smelter for the present, at
least. Whether more furnaces will
have to be blown out remains to be
seen. Superintendent Hodges is
endeavoring to secure coke from
otber collieries, and so far has succeeded in securing eight cars, or 200
tons, daily from the West Canadian
collieries at Blairmore, Alta. The
requirements for all tho furnaces is
13 or 14 carloads per day. If Mr.
Hodges is successful in getting additional coke supplies the furnaces now
idle may he placed in commision
again shortly.
The strike is a serious blow to the
smelters of the entire southeastern
portion of the province. Advices
from Trail state tbat the plant there,
with its lead stacks and copper furnaces, will close down sometime this
week unless the strike is settled in
the meantime. The management
has made unsuccessful attempts to
secure coke elsewhere. With tbe
closing down of -the smelter, it is
feared that most of the mines tbat
ship their ore to the Trail plant will
also be compelled to close down.
The smelter management will endeavor to aveit this by a renewed at
tempt .to get coke enough to keep
the plant in motion. In the event
of the smelter portion of the Trail
plant being closed down, the lead refinery will be kept in operation.
The Northport smelter had made
preparations to blow'in one furnace
on October 15, a second on November 1,'and a third as soon as tbe pros
ent contract for the Le Roi ore at the
Trail smelter was out, but now it is
doubtful when the plant will blow
in—it all depends on tbe settlement
of the coal strike at Fernie. There
are six furnaces, with a capacity of
1200 tons per day, at the Northport
smelter. Two furnaces, at least,
would have been operated after November I, giving employment to 120
men.

Sixteen Miles of Kettle Valley
Line's Grade Will Be finished Nov. 15
buildings in that locality. The cave
occurred in a stope from the 150-foot
level, and men were put watching the
place to see that no pedestrians or
teams went near it. No special harm
was done, and the company will at
once fill the stope with waste, a track !
now being run from the Idaho ore
bins, 250 feet distant, for this purpose.
Two Cars of Machinery Arrive

Committee From Athletic Association Will Formulate
Scheme for Rink
G. L. Woodard, the contractor, has
finished clearing the Kettle Valley
right of was as far as Lynch creek.
By November 15 the first sixteen
miles of the grade of the road will be
ready for the steel. Boyd k Clenden-
ning, of Vancouver, who have a subcontract of two miles of heavy rock
work, are employing 35 Hindus.
They say that the experiment has
proved successful, and that the Sikhs
are fully equal to Italians with the
pick and shovel, and on drill work.
The Sikhs are recruited from the farming classesvof the northwest of India.
The first class in gymnastics will
be instructed this (Friday) evening by
Prof. J. S. Jost, at the rooms of the
Athletic association, A special meeting of the directors of the*association
will be held next Monday night to
confer with the city council on matters pertaining to the proposed rink
building on Spokane avenue. The
association desire the lots on aforesaid
ayenue, between Fourth and Fifth
streets, on which to erect their rink,
and also the light and water privileges given them last year by the council. President Fred Clark states that
everything possible will be done to
make the association a success in both
an athletic and social sense, and that
now is a good time for those who are
not already affiliated with this organization to add their names to the membership roll.
A party of Grand Forks sports attended the Interstate fair in Spokane
last week. In order to break the
monotony of the slow life in the Inland Empire metropolis, they decided
to hire an automobile and take a spin
through the suburbs. Whon they
came to a clear stretch of road in the
outskirts of the city, they told the
chauffeur to "let he go for all she was
worth." After going a short distance,
a cow, chased by a dog, ran out of an
alleyway and took after the racing
auto. As the cow was in a hurry,
whon sho caught up with the gas
buggy, she jumped clour over it and
for a short distance kept ahead of it.
After awhile, however, when the cow
began to tiro, the car caught up with
her, and when sho became entirely
fagged out the auto ran over her,
wrecking the car and badly bruising
the occupants, You can recognize
the victims by the court plaster, portions of which still cling to their
faces.
Wednesday morning a cave occurred in the workings of the Brooklyn
mine of the Dominion Copper company, in Phoenix, at a point where
the drift runs directly under Dominion

house on the edge of the avenue, but

A concert company of unusual
merit is the one which will be heard
in the opera house in this city on the
night of October tho 10th. It is seldom that our people have an opportunity to see and hear artists of the
high standard and genius of the members of the Philharmonic Concert
Company, under the personal direction of B. Von Turner, a musical
leader whose name is well known in
all musical circles, and no one should
miss the musical treat in store for them.
The coinpany include ihe following
well known people: Fanny Ferguson,
prima donna soprano; Karl Reidels-
berger, violin virtuoso; Ruby King,
pianist and accompanist; Raymond
Lehr, cornet soloist. This company
has been secured for this city by the
local band association, and under
their auspices will be heard in grand
concert at the opera house next Wednesday night, October 10.
Fred Lawrie, one of the proprietors of the Lion Bottling Works,
while at work in the ahop last Saturday, had the misfortune to slightly
bruise his hand. He must have got
the injured member in coutact with
some rusty barrel hoops, because
shortly thereafter blood poisoning set
in, and since that time ho has been
compelled to Carry his hand in a sling.
At present, however, all danger is
passed, aud he is rapidly recovering.
Olaf Everson, who lives on his mineral claims a short distance below ihe
city, has recently built an addition to

As Mr. Everson did not have a gun,
tho animal walked in the morning unharmed. On the following day some

but as they were only armed with 22-
caliber rifles, they ran home after sizing hiin up.

The Former Now Employs a
Force of fen Workmen
The force at the Grand Forks
Steel Structural Works has been increased to ten, four men—two sheet
and metal workers and two flange-
men and boilermakers—arriving
from Spokane this week, and the
place is now the busiest scene inside
the city limits. Another car of machinery also arrived at the works this
week. This shipment includes a
quick-acting punch, with a capacity
of 90 holes per minute, and a rolling iron machine weighing ten tons.
The latter is the biggest piece of machinery in the shop, being capable
of bending an 1 1-4 inch plate, eight
feet wide. The new riveting machine wis also put in commission
this week for the first time. It requires three men to operate it, and
has a capacity of three rivets per
minute. Taken altogether, it is decidedly lively around the works, and
it will pay any citizen who imagines
that all the business opportunities
have been monopolized to visit
them.
At tbe Boundary Iron Works, ad-
joing the steel plant, construction
work is proceeding rapidly. The
finishing touches are now being put
on the pattern shop, and work has
been started on the main building.
The first shipment of machinery arrived this week. The shipment consists ot the blower for the foundary,
and a number of the latest improved
machines for pattern! making.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 5,  1906
The Sun has received a communi
oation from Victoria advocating the
repeal of the $500 head tax on
Chinese immigrants. Tbe writer
claims that the present prohibitive
tax has created a monopoly of the
Chinese laborers, who, he asserts,
are rapidly amassing fortunes. He
also makes the astounding statement
that Chinese labor does not come in
competion with white labor. The
letter is too long for these columns;
but even if we had the space to
spare, we would not print it anyway, because we believe the tax is a
good thing. If it has helped to raise
the wages of the laboring men it has
accomplished something to be thankful for. Good wages always bring
contentment and prosperity. And
that is what we are all longing for.
"What can you do for Spokane?"
is a question that stares you in the
face wherever you go in the metropolis
of the Inland Empire. The same
question could be pressed, with profit,
upon the citizens of Orand Forks.
There are lots of things that the people generally could do for this city if
they would only try. Instead of
waiting for half a dozen men to build
up the city, everybody should lend a
helping hand. That is the only way
cities are built.
A Victoria dispatch states that it is
learned from an authoritative source
tbat the legislature will meet on
January 15, and that the general
elections will be brought on early in
the summer. This information is
from a member of the legislature
who iB a loyal supporter of the McBride government.

AS YOU LIKE IT
I
Love nnd sickness cannot lie de-
cri1 ed—they must he. experienced
The promises of  pulitici.ins will
not hold wiiler—nor linyihing else.
Persons who want oihers to know
of their ex'sSence should often go into debt.
The nuniher of men who cannot
stand success is larger than one
would think.
When a man begins talking ahout
purifying politics he generally wants
an olliee.
The bald-headed man is a blessing in one way—be never gets his
hair cut on Saturday.
Many people think a newspaper
is a necessary evil,while others think
it unnecessnrv.
Next to lulling off a log the »-csiest
thing is to tell other people bow to
bring up their children.
The man who snid tomorrow never
comes did not hiiye a note to pay
which" fell due in ill hours.
Life insurance no doubt is a good
thing, but what the average man
needs is fire insurance—for the here
after.
Tbe Mary of today bas no little
lanb that follows her to school, for
no lamb could keep up with the
pace our modern Mary sets.
Doubtless there are many things
that we eat and drink that are not
healthful—but we are not solely on
earth for our health.
When you go into polities give
your character to the devil and your
pocketbook to your wife. You may
this way save something.
Now-a-days iUis only the flattering barber who can get the average
man to have a shave, a haircut and
a shampoo all at one sitting.
Men Rule By Force,Wumen By charm
And yet because they live less
strenuously, women neglect the early
evidences of failing vigor. The wise
woman do not permit her charms to
be robbed by ill-health. When she
feels appetite failing, nerves getting
on edge, color fading, she take Fen o-s
zone. How it sharpens the appetite!
How quickly rich blood is avuilable to
restore color to the cheeks, buoyancy
to the step. Better try Ferrozone.
You'll feel like a new being, with new
vigor and ability to confront life's
difficulties. You are sure to bless the
day you commenced Ferrozone. Sold
everywhere in 50c boxes.
