Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, April 6, 1906
Issued Twice a Week
Enormous Profits Are Made
in Mining Shares in One
Year
Find of New Ore Bodies and
Advance in Metals Boost
Prices
The Spokesman-Review of the 5th
inst. contains the following article on
the growth ofthe mining industry:
Wonderful growth of the mining industry and a wonderful increase in
wealth for tiie Spokane operators who
have been following mines is evidenced'
by the fact that the shares in 20 companies, actively "clealt in here, have advanced over $3l?$6o,000 within the
past year,
The average price of shares had
more than doubled. As a consequence,
mining is again coming to the forefront as one of the most aggressive,
and profitable industries of the Spokane country. !
The advance is due in part to the
discovery of new, ore bodies-, and in
part to the brilliant climb in the .price
of copper and lead, which With gold
and silver are the staple metals of the
nearby milies.' "
Granby, Consolidated, of Grand
Forks, B.'-S./has made a marvelous
advonce.*'':-/&yflarago its shares were
selling for **tf ^""^nOw they are active
in Boston at $13.25; and as there are
about l,40O,«66 sliares of Granby, the
advance is about, 110,000,000. It is
paying dividends at the rate of 12 per
cent annually, and is credited with
muking copper at less than 9 cents a
pound. Copper is now worth 18J
cents in New York, as against 15 cents
a year ago. The-'Granby is Jay P.
Graves' promotion.
Bunker Hill k Sullivan, which is
declaring regular dividends of $180,-
000 a month from its silver-lead properties at Wardner, Idaho, ia*n6minolly
quoted at $50 a share, although it is
doubtful if any can be bought at that
price. A year ago it was around $21
a share. Its meteoric advance was
signalized by the payment of a single
dividend of $1,500,000, or $4.50 a
share. It is stocked for 13,000,000 in
$10 shares. Perry" Belmont of New-
York is a large owner. There are
ahout 83 stockholdeas, it is said, of
whom 61 own loss than 1000 shares.
Tho advance in Bunker Hill k (Sullivan was uidod hy the movement of
lend from 4J cents to 5.4 cents a
pound, and silver from 56 to li!j
cents an ounce within a year.
Federal, the .Sweeny lead silver promotion in the Coeur d'Alene, has seen
its common stock advance from $96
to $185 in 12 months. Hecla (silver-
lead). In the Coeur d'Alenes, has (jone
up from $1.20 to $2.65. Snowstorm,
a Coeur d'Alene property, lids advanced from 30 to 55 cents. One of
the most brilliant advances uf any
Coeur d'Alene stook is Tamarack k
Chesapeake, which from $k cents in
1905 has jumped to par, or $1, which
is its present price.
Patrick Clurk's Furnace Creek Copper company, operating in Death valley, California, was practically valueless last summer, for it was then a
prospect far out in the desert, with an
exceedingly precarious future that depended upon getting a railway. Now
two railroads are building that way,
and the bottom of a 100-foot shaft is
reported to be all in 40 per cent copper ore. Mr. Clark allotted 125,000
shares to friends in Butte a month
ago at 50 cents a share. Since then
it has jumped, until yesterday brokers
were trying in vain to fill orders at
$1.75 a share. It is incorporated for
1,250,000 shares, and thus a prospect
that is now 40 miles from transportation is selling at a valuation of $2,-
200,000.
Herewith are given some prices of
Spokane stocks that prevail now and

Matter and a Big Vote

CITY NEWS
J. C. MacDonald, of the Grand
Forks Steel Construction company,
will leave for Spokane tomorrow. He
will bring his family back with him
to this city.
P. D. McDonald returned home on
Wednesday from a business trip to
Rossland, Nelson and Trail. He ex-
peces to leave in a day or two on an
extended visit to the coast cities.
J. W. Morrison, one of Grand
Forks' pioneer lumber merchants, returned to the eity this week from
Seattle, where he has been residing
during the past two years.
Max Kunti!,formerly of thiB city.but
now engaged in the transfer business
in Midway, was in the Wednesday.
It is understood that he completed
the details for the sale of his North
Fork ranch while here.
H. Eldridge, who was seriously
wounded by a huld-np man at Midway last week, continues to make
sutifuctory progress towards recovery,
and it will not bo very long before he
will be able to leave his bed, says the
Midway Star.
The vote taken on the two by-laws
last Thursday proved an agreeable
surprise. Some opposition had
been expected, but when the ballots
were counted the result was foutiol
to almost uninimous in favor of
the by-laws.
The vote on the by-law granting
the Kettle Valley railway running
rights through the city was:
For  231
Against       9
Spoiled ballots      6'
Total number of votes cast .. 246.
The vote on the Steel Construction
Works bonus by-law Btood:
For  230
Against     11
Spoiled ballots       5
Total number-of votes cast... 246
The interest manifested iu the
matter is plainly discernible When
it is stated that there are only 261
property owners in the city who are
entitled to vote, and of tbis number
246 cast their ballots.
Both the Messrs. MacDonald and
the railway people desire to express
their thanks through the press to
the business men, citizens generally,
and also to the ladies of Grand
Forks, for the hearty support they,
gave the by-law, and their untiring
efforts to bring out a full vote.
Both Mr. Warrington, of the Kettle Valley line, and the Messrs. Mac
Donald state that they will commence active construction work as
soon as contracts can be let and men
secured.
It is reported that the Dominion
Copper company is endeavoring to
secure tome of the more promising
-properties on Copper mountain,near
.Chesaw, negotiations' having been
commenced with several owners in
thnt locality within the past few
days. **■

Fred Birney, the locator of the
now famous Furnace Creek copper
mine in Dentil" valley, California,
visited Grand Forks last summer,
and will return here tn shout a
month. Ho intends to confine his
operations during the present sum
mer to the upper Nortli Fork country. A 100-foot slinft on the Furnace mine is nil in 40 per cent copper ore.
With tho certainty of thc Kettle
Valley lino being constructed to
Franklin cnmp, nn incipient boom
in North Fork ininiiifjpropertics has
already made itself manifest.
At the Granby mines last week
an electric locomotive was received
for use in the No. .'! tunnel, making
the second purchased for that purpose. The new giant oro crusher,
located on the Canadian Pacilic
traeks, has also been placed in commission.
The Dominion Copper company
is expecting almost daily a complete equipment for a new machine
shop at the smelter at Boundary
Falls, and only last week this company received several electric motors
which   will   be used in furnishing
power.
It is reported that the whole mountain six miles soutqeast of this city,
where free gold was discovered by-
Messrs. Simpson and Stuart last
week, has now been staked.
A decided departure at the Granby mines is an automatic ore bin
feeder, its function being to take the
ore after being crushed, without
handling, to the ore bins on the railway tracks. As far as known, this
is the first machine of its kind installed at any metalliferous mine in
British Columbia. It will be placed
in position at the No. Granby terminal.
A six-foot Beam of coal has been
discovered a few miles west of Mid
way. A great deal of excitement
prevails in Midway over the find,
and the whole mountaidsida is being staked.
Diamond drills for exploring the
low grade veins of the Boundary
district have become very popular
during the past year. Five ma
chines are now in use, and contractors assert that several more
rould be placed if they were on
hand. Tunnelling or raising costs
Jcom ten to twenty dollars per foot,
and diamond drilling from three to
fjve per foot. The Granby company
li'iVs used a drill steadily since September, 1904, and for several months
tVvo bave been working double
shifts. Since starting this last time
14,045 feet of diamond drilling have
been done at thc Granby mine by
contract, or with the 2875 feet previously done, a total of 16,920 feet
have been done in these mines—
more ihan three miles of work. Last
week a diamond drill was installed
at the Oro Denoro mine, in Summit
camp, by the British Columbia Cop
per company, which is testing the
property. In Phoenix camp the
.Dominion Copper company is start
ing a diamond drill to explore the
lower levels of the company's Brook
lyn mine.
P. T. and Donald .McCallum returned Wednesday from Greenwood,
where they closed a deal for the sale
of about 500 acres of land to the
Kettle River Irrigation Fruit Lands
Co., Ltd. The land disposed of was
tho property of the Messrs. McCallum, and is located near Ingram
bridge, between Midway and Rock
Creek. They still own about 320
acres in the same vicinity, besides
numerous tracts and ranches near
this city. The deal was negotiated
by W. H. Norris and W. O. Wright,
of Midway, and the consideration is
stated to have been, approximately,
$9000.
The Kettle River Irrigation Fruit
Lands Co., Ltd., is a close company,
and will only sell a limited amount
of stock. It is'capitalized for $100,-
000. The company now owns about
2000 acres, which will be divided
into small holdings. Over $30,000
•will be expended in getting water on
the land by constructing a huge
flume .'rom Rock.
New steel ore dump ears are arriving at Northport, und this, coupled
with the fact that A. J. McMillan,
managing director of the Lcltoi, und
Albert 1. Goodell, munuger of the
Northport smelter, huve lieeii in St.
I'aul conferring with the trallic ollieials nf the Great Northern, presumably for tho purposo of arranging
freight rates on Lcltoi ore, leads to
the conclusion that the LeRoi will
soon begin to send its ore to North-
port. As the Canadian Smelting
works ut Trail has u three years' contract with the Lcltoi Mining company
to reduce its ore, it is probable that
troublo will result should an attempt
be mude to evade the terms of the
contract by sending the ere to North-
port. The question is the cause of a
great deal of discussion in Northport.
Geo. A. MacLeod, of the Franklin
City Townsite company, left this afternoon, on a short business trip to
Nelson. Mr. Mac I .cod is accompanied bs his wife.

FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 19(l(i
Since a city south of the international boundary line formed a 150,-
000 club, tho movement has spread
until every town nnd hamlet in the
west now boasts of a two-million
boosting club. Like a great many
other good things, the scheme is be
ing worked to death, and it will not
be long before a "boosting" club
will be mentioned only in derision.
Every cross-roads hamlet, with not
enough natural resources to support
half a dozen coyotes in the style to
which they were brought up, have
formed clubs with the object of inducing 200,000 people to
settle in their "midst." It is difficult to see what good these organizations can accomplish. Sensible
people do not pay any attention to
the circus barker, and his prototype,
the two-million booster, will soon
find the public's ear turned away
from him. And the man who boosts
without knowing what he is boosting
for is almost as big a nuisance as the
chronic "knocker." Both lack grey
matter. If the resources—developed
or undeveloped—of a community
warrants a certain population, legitimate advertising will bring them
there.
As the proposed new Conservative
daily paper for Nelson, announced
some months ngo for the 2nd of
April, did not make its appearance
ns per announcement, it is evident
that the next provincial election is
not as close at hand as we had imagined. The change in the government's plans was doubtless brought
about by a desire to give the people
time to forget the details of thc
Kaien Island land deal scandal, the
Columbia & Western land subsidy
steal, and a lot of other things too
numerous to mention.
'    CITY NEWS
M. S. Martin, the contractor, will

What Causes Snoring
When asleep people that snore

fore retiring and you'll quickly cure
the snoring habit. By destroying the
cause of catarrh and healing the membranes, Catarrhozone makes a complete cure in every case; it cleans tho
lostri Is, stops the discharge and pro-
ents dropping in the throat in a few
iiiiiutes. Nothing so pleasant or certain to cure snoring, catarrh or colds
as Catarrhozone—that's worth remembering.    Sold by all druggists.

Politics is the art of hunting for
your own preferment under the guise

Many people do not know, and
never try to learn, the du y ,h y owe
to the public. Some men say it makes
no difference to them who is elected,
and that they will not go to the polls.
If all men were so disposed, how long
would it take this country to run into
a state of anarchy? Many people
want a good government, but want
their neighbors to make and sustain
it, while they look for soft snaps.
How to Cure Toothache
Any aching tooth can be relieved
instantly with Nerviline. Fill the
cavity with limiting dipped in Nervilino and rub the gums with Nerviline
also. If the face is swollen and sore
bathe the painful parts with Nerviline
and cover with a flannel. This can't
fail, because Nerviline kills the pain
outright and prevents it from returning. Stronger, quicker, more satisfactory than any other liniment, Poison's
Nerviline has been the largest seller
for nearly fifty years; try it yourself.
