Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, October 30,1906
Semi-Weekly—$1.00 Per Year In Advance
A
Granby Directors Vote One to
Heads of Departments of
the Company
Said to Be on a Basis of 30
Per Cent of Salaries
Paid
The Sun has Ascertained that
at the recent annual meeting of tbe
directors of the Granby Consolidated, in New York city, a substantial
bonus was voted the officers of the
reduction works in tbis city and tbe
mines at Phoenix for efficient services in the past. The office staff
and mine and smelter foremen are
also to share in thin distribution.
While the exact amount of the
bonus haB not been given out, it is
hinted that it is based on 30 per cent
of the saiaries of the beneficiaries,
and the total amount Will probably
reach $15,000 or 020,000.
The liberality of the Granby directorate towards its officers and men
in the post has made this' company
the most successful mining and
smelting concern on tbe continent,
and it is safe to predict that this
tbeir latest act of generosity will
bring forth redoubled efforts on the
pait of the officers to maintain or
surpass the present high standard of
the Granby Consolidated.
ounces of bullion, of an estimated
value of $3753. C mueutrates ship
ped amount to 120 tons, having estimated value of $3360; total, #7110.
The manager's cable to the London
office says, further: -'Fine body of
ore' encountered in west drift from
raise from 1000-foot level Have also discovered a Tjood body of ore at
level No. ti east. Have been obliged
to mill the ore from the upper workings, owing to new developments.
Otherwise returns would be bettor.
The water supply halt increased, but
is still short."
These last returns indicate a mill-
head of ore, worth $5.73 per ton,
while the average for the three preceding months was only $+.45. The
shorttige'or water lias greatly reduced
the month's output, as only 16 stamps
could be operated. During the present month us niiinv as fifty stamps
have been in operation at the same
time, and the tonnage treated for October will be much greater than during the preceding month.
The construction of the big aerial
tramway at the Hunter V. mine,
which was destroyed by fire this sum
mer, is nearly completed, and, it is
expected, will he in running order
next week. There is a 1 arge quantity
of ore broken down and awaiting
shipment as soon as the tramway is
New Mining Company
A company, known as the Wallace
Mountain Mining Co., Ltd., has been
incorporated by Greenwood people and
the articles of association are being issued. Among those interested in the
new company are Kenneth Mackenzie,
B. M. Snyder, Duncan Currie, L. S.
Rolley, *#>"*". Belt, A. Lind, Thomas
Henderson and Jas. McCreath Jr.
Hon, W. S. Fielding ia also a shareholder. For some time the members
of this company have been associated
as a syndicate and Dave been working
the Duncan and Bounty fraction silver
mines on the West Fork of the Kettle
River. The mines are located on
Wallace mountain, hence the name of
the company. The company will continue to work the two mines with
greater activity.
During the post summer souio fine
samples of wire silver have been taken
out of the Duncan and work has been
done on a ledge 23 inohes wide. The
same lead runs into the Bounty fraction and the two will be worked together. Ore is being taken out steadily and a shipment is expected this
week. The Duncan is held at present
under bond for $10,000. It is owned
by Robert wood, Ralph Smailes, S, M.
Johnson and J, N. Paton. The
Bounty is owned by I. H. Hallet and
Thomas Henderson.
The Ymir Mine
Ymib, B. C, Oct., 27.—Sinco. the
commencement of the present year
the Ymir mine has treated over 16,-
000 tons of ore in ils stamp mill, from
which has been produced over 1000
tons of concentrates. The returns
for September show a decided improvement in the grade of the ore.
Ffteen stamps ran thirty days, crushing 1240 tons of ore, producing 331
The Copper Market
New York, Oct. 25.—The copper
market is excited and prices continue
to show an advancing tendency. Lake
and electrolytic may now be quoted
at 21-3-4 cents to 1*3 cents per pound.
Sales of round lots have been mode at
21 cents, and, reports say, at 22*V and
23 cents al.o- The leading sei ing
agencies and the largest producing interests are advising consumers to retain, as long as possible, from making
further purchases. Buyers have been
bidding prices up again themselves,
and producers, having no copper for
nearby delivery,, have been unable to
stop the advance. One of the Urges
selling interests say that his concern
could not contract to deliver more
than 200,000 pounds of electrolytic
copper during the remainder of this
year.
Thursday morning Inst about six
o'clock James Peacock, a mucker boss
at the Granby mines in Phoenix
camp, was seriously iujuied while at
work in No. 2 shaft* by having a mine
car fall ou him while on tho cage
In going down he neglected to clos
the gate of the cage. When he had
descended some 200 feet, a topmun
came along with an empty car, and
the gate being o]ieu, the car went
down the shaft on top of the cage,
ond the topman narrowly escaped
falling after the car. When the
heavy car struck the cago, the drawbar pulled out and both slmtldown to
the 300-foot level. When the .car
struck the hood of the cage Peacock
was thrown on his back, and when it
reached- the heavy steel chairs across
the shaft at the 800-fost level, it bent
and twisted them, the cage sinking
some seven feet further. After being
taken to the hospital it was found
that the unfortunate man had several
ribs fractured and one lung punctured, besides other internal injuries.
The man has a wife and several children.

Dominion  Copper  Company
Secure Properties on
American Side
Located on La Fleur Mountain, Not Far from Cur-
Lew, Washington
The Dominion Copper company last
week bonded another group of'claims.
These are known as the Delphia group
and are located on La Fleur mdnntain,
near Curlew, in Washington state,
and adjoin the Comstock group, which
was purchased some eight years ago
by the Le Roi Mining company, when
thut company was organized. No
development work of a great extent
has been carried on on this property
for a nuTiber of years, but it is the
intention of the company to have
cabins erected tli9 coming winter and
make all preparations for a systematic development. The bond is for a
substantial figure, u small payment
down being made last week. Ore
when ready for the smelter can be
shipped via the Kettle Valley lines.
AMUSEMENTS
The Josh Spruceby company on
Saturday night last showed to a
good bouse, giving general satisfaction. The inpersonation of the typical down east farmer was delightfully genuine and convincing and
was only marred by deficient support. A petite lady member captivated the audience by the way she
rendered several popular songs.
The much lauded Roscians came,
were seen and left again. Their is
a difference of opinion among those
wbo witnessed the opera as to the
capabilities of tbe participants. One
asserts himself as being firmly convinced that the entire wardrobe of
the coinpany could be duplicated at
Munro & Stephen's towel counter
for ahout six bits; another says that
if the opera house had been build
one sixteenth of a foot more in length
it would have been impossible to
hear u single warble; still another
says thnt if he had 5 cents for every
time he cursed himself for buying
it ticket he could buy the whole of
Franklin townsite. On Winnipeg
avenue the reporter inquired of n
residont how he liked the show.
The man looked puzzled for a moment, then cxclamcd. 'Oh, tbat
Mahara minstrel show—tine, sir,
fine!" A sninll boy on Spokane
avenue was discovered in a paroxysm
of delight. Ho said: 'That feller
wot takes sis to nil them shows and
lets mc stay nt home he (Inughing)
got stung for three plunks last
night." It was beginning to look
as if tho bIiow wasn't worth going
across the alley to see when several
citizens asserted that with the exception of being Blightly overdone
the opera was very creditably presented, and that a lot of the audience went home disatisfied because
tbey had expected to see a circus.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1906
A public meeting  of the citizens
of Grand Forks  has been called for
Tuesday, November 6, at 7:30 p.m.,
in thc city hull, to discuss questions
of vital importance to the welfare of
the city.    Mr. Wm. Spier, it is understood, has been asked to preside.
The Sun learns that the questions
of making Grand  Forks a common
freight point; of inducing the Great
Northern  to make this a divisional
point, and of maturing somescheme
for bringing the valley under a modern system of irrigation, will be discussed by able speakers.    These are
questions th it aftVct every   citizen,
and should bring out -■ goodidttend-
ance.    Spasmodic   endeavors' have
been made in the past to solve these
problems,   but   they   have   ircner
ally    been   dropped   when it   bus
been suggested that there  might  be
some slight expense attached to their
solution. This time the matter should
be tnken up in earnest, nnd  pushed
lo a successful 'crniination.
Home-Made Fables
A Tory editor not far from Grand
Forks dreamt that he died the other
night and  went to heaven j because
dreams   always   go   hy  contraries.
St.  Peter allowed    him    to    pass
through the pearly gates unmolested.
After strolling around the gold aud
jasper pavements   for a short time
the editor returned to St. I'eter nnd
requested that he be permitted to depart.    "Why, what is tho matter?"
asked St.   Peter.    "During thc few
minutes I have heen here," replied
the editor, "I have notieedtbat there
exists a big difference between the
treatment accorded the harpists and
the chorus, and f have decided to go
down   below   and   ask for   'better
terms' for the latter."    "All right,"
replied St. Peter, "depart in pence;
but I warn you, thnt you will not. be
allowed to re-enter here."   The editor persisted in his hunt  for  'better
terms'; hut after a while* he returned
to   St.   Peler and wished to be readmitted to heaven.    "No," replied
St. Peter; "I warned you when  you
left.    You enn't play any  McBride
stunts   on   the   gatekeepers in this
place."   And the poor Tory editor
had to take up his  permanent  residence in the nether world.
Moral—Imaginary grievances often make us lose sight of the many
advantages we enjoy.
tisli Columbia  had  not been treated
justly at the conterence**x>r that tliere
was any claim that could be taken to
Downing  street.     Premier McBride
knows, as  we  all   know, that British
Columbia  has  no grievance that can
be taken to Downing street for arbitration.    He knows that the imperial
government would not interfere in a
matter of  this  kind,   and,   what   is
more, has no right to interfere.    Premier McBride is only trilling with the
question when he even suggests such a
possibility.    And  it is this attitude
of the premier's that calls for severest
rebuke.    He is attempting to create
an entirely false impression and in so
doing risks the possibility  of  stirring
up wholly unnecessary and  inevitably
hurtful factional l'eelinir.

The B. (J. Copper company blew in
their second furnace in their Greenwood smelter last Sunday. This will
give the smelter a capacity of 1300
tons per day. The third and last furnace will be blown in in about two
weeks, when the capacity will be 2000
tons per day. Tho company does not
expect to run all the furnaces at one
time until the Anaconda substation
will be in a position to furnish sufficient power. All the company's mines
are shipping ore.
More miles of  railway will be built
in Canada this year than in any previous  year  in  her history.    Most of
this  is trunk line, except about 900
miles uf-Canadian Pacilic, and will afford work for some 20,000 men.   This
force will have employment, if present
indications aro accurate, for seven or
eight years.    Tho  mere statement of
these facts  is enough to convey some
idea of  the  rapidity with which the
oountry is developing, through the increasing application of labor and capital to tho exploitation  of  its  natural
resources.   It should he borne in mind
that none of the entrprises  thus financed are of a speculative character.

McBride's Erratic Action -
Nelson News: Premier McBride
has returned to Victoria. He has enjoyed a torchlight procession, the
cheers of his admirers and for a brief
space has occupied that piominent
place in the limelight so dear to his
heart.
He ia reported to have spoken in
Victoria, at the public meeting held
immediately after his arrival from
Ottawa, with quite unusual moderation, and we ere glad to he ahle to
give him credit for some apparent
eleventh hour recognition of the serious nature of the problem involved in
this better term controversy.
Still it is not clear that the ] render
returned to this province with any intelligent explanation of his erratic
conduct at Ottawa, or any suggestion,'
susceptible of intelligent discussion,
for remedying the ill effects ut his
lack of capacity to deal with griiv,
affairs of state in a statesmanlike
manner.
We are told by some of his whole
souled apologists that, ''He (the pre
mier) scored a veritable triumph nnd
wus appli.uded again and again when
he said: 'The only position for Bri
tisli Columbia to assume is to insist
on simple justice and if need arise to
do so in order to obtain this, let us
accry our claims to the court of last
resort.' "
Doubtless a Victoria audience did
cheer this high sounding phrase with
wild enthusiasm, but we question
very much if anyone in the audience
knew what the premier meant. And
wo are quite sure that the premier, in
using these words, and we have the
authority of tho local McBride apologist that he did, simply used them for
the purpose of temporarily enthusing
his auditors.
It is attributing too great a depth
of stupidty to premier McBride to assume for,one moment that ho wished
his audience to understand that Hri-

IT ALSO keeps them new. There will
be no old, dull looking furniture or
clingy woodwoik in homes where this
wonder-worker is used. No tefinishing or
levamishing necessary. Liquid Veneer is
not a varnish, but a surface food and
cleaner that builds up the original finish
and makes it brighter than ever.
It instantly restores the brilliant newness
and finish of Pianos, Furniture, Picture
Frames, Interior Woodwork, Hardwood
Floors and all polished, varnished ot
enameled surfaces. Removes scratches,
stains, dirt and dullness.
A child can apply it. Nothing but a
piece of cheese cloth is needed and then
is no drying to wait for.

MINING NOTES
Twenty-five   men  are  wanted at
the Boundnry Falls smeller.
Three cirloads of materials for
the new furnace for the Dominion
Copper Go's Boundary Foils smelter
have arrived nt the works.     '
The Wallace Mountain Mining
coinpany, capiial **> 125,000, is being
organized in Greenwood;
Several hundred tons of ore were
Bent out last week from the H. C.
mino, Summit camp, to the B, C.
Copper conipauy'g smelter, the lirst
shipment in a couple of years. The
Oro Denoro will also rejoin the shipping list soon.
The Delphia group of claims, located on La Fleur mountain, near
Curlew, was bonded last week by
the Dominion Copper company. Development work will be prepared lor
this winter.
BOUNDARY   ORE   SHIPMENTS
Thos. A. Woodruff and F. L. Johnson, of Chicago, who are inteiestcd in
mining properties near Greenwood,
Were in the Boundary last week.
Contractor Lane, who has a contract for construction on the Kettle
Valley line, is having f. hard time
with his Hindu laborers, says the
Midway Star. He says, however,
they are willing workers, but totally
unfiit for railway work. They are
extremely ignorant of all kinds of
manual labor, and they do not appear
to have the physical strength requisite
for the work, They invariably start
using their hands f-ir work that they
should use a shovel for, and they do
not eat enough of the riglit kind of
food to sustain them. They absolutely refuse to eat meat and potatoes,but
instead nse u kind of baked hread
which they dip in a black grease.
This bread and grease constitutes
their daily repast. Mr. Lane says he
is experiencing great dfficulty in securing labors for his grading work,
and this would probably delay the
completion of his contract.
