Third Year.
Grand Forks, B. C, Tuesday, November 10, 1903
No. 3
Curtis Is Optimistic
More Dividends Will be Paid Next Year
Than Ever Before.
INSET sura
The Outlook for Legitimate Mining in This Province Was
Never Better—New Processes Will Cheapen
Production Considerably.
Smith Curtis, manager of the Oro
Denoro mine, in an interview printed in yesterday's Spokesman-
Review, is enthusiastic over the
mines in this district. Cheapened
methods of treating ores, which will
enable low grade ores to lie treated
at a profit, are the chief reasons he
gives for bis statement that next
year will he one of the greatest in
the history of tbis province.
"Tho Elmore oil process of con-
eeutratinn," says Mr. Curtis, "is said
nut only to he a success, hut lias surpassed the expectations of the inventor in the results it is giving.
The fact that the War Eagle and thc
Center Star have given orders for a
plant to he used in conjunction with
their own concentrating plant, which
they have erected at Trail, will give,
some idea of Ihe faith that is placed
in the process. Other companies,
Such as the Lo Roi and the Spitzee,
Will put in plants iT the process continues to give satisfactory results until next spring, and little doubt is
entertained as lo thai.
"The success of the process will
mean that a number of other .mines
will he put in operation, as there
area larg< number of low grade
properties that can thus be operated
al a profit.
"In addition to these experimental efforts another company has been
investigating Dr. Hondryx's cyanide process, which reported, very
satisfactory results. With regard to
Rossland, there is a fairly well
founded belief that there is a considerable body of ore adjacent that
is more or less'frec gold, and it is
likely to lie opened up in the near
future. These properties were overlooked ill the earlier days, when the
I). K. and the 1. X. I„ were operated. The fact that tho lessees or
the dump of the last named have
been recently milking large profits
from what was supposed to he of
little value has reawakened interest
in the locality. Tbe excellent results of the .I umbo mine, operated
hy M. R. Galusha and controlled by
Spokane capital, has tended considerably to direct interest toward that
and claims adjacent.
"Mining in the Boundary country
since an ample supply of coke has
been assured for the three smelters
has caused great activity. Gold and
copper properties have made great
strides. The shipments of the
Granby smelter have recently been
doubled and will soon he trebled.
The output of the other two has
also been considerably increased and
will he made still greater.
"In the Boundary district among
thc new properties added to the shipping list are. thc Winnipeg, Athelstan and Oro Denoro, and I am manager of thc latter.    Since   April  wo
havedone a great deal of development
work, and have shipped over 10,000
ton's of ore to the smelters, We are
now shipping about 750 tons per
week, hut shortly this will he quad-
ruplcd. The ore carries a large percentage of magnetic iron, for which
an allowance is made at the smelter,
cheapening the cost of smelting.
"A number of high grade gold
and silver mines have been opened
up in the vicinity of (Ireenwood,
and many more are likely soon to
be operated. The veins are narrow,
but the values run from 875 to $300
per ton.
"Generally the outlook for legitimate mining in llritish Columbia,"
concluded Mr. Curtis, "has never
been better. There will be more
dividends paid next year than ever
before in the history ofthe province.
;This will bring additional capital
into the country."
Greenwood Typographical Union
No. 358 met in Greenwood last Saturday evening. Before the business
meeting of the union the members
were royally entertained at dinner by
Dr. and Mrs. Mathison, assisted by
Mrs. Forbes Kerby of tbis city.
Those who were present at the banquet—wc might as well call things
hy their right name—were: Harry
W. Falconer, J. Peck MacSwain and
.Mr. Einhrce, of Greenwood; W. IS.
Willcox and Brock Hilliard, of Phpe-
nix, and ye Si'N man ot Grand Forks,
ft is needless to say that the inimi-
talile J. Peck MacSwain kept the
company in good bumor by a liberal
recital of his mirth-provoking anecdotes, in which he was ably assisted
by a number of the other guests.
At the business session of tbe union
a vote of thanks, which was ordered
spread upon the minutes of tho
union, was unanimously tendered
Mr. and Mrs. Mathison for the many
courtesies shown the members during the evening. Amongother business transacted, the vacancy existing in the office of vice-president
was filled by the unanimous election
of Harry W. Falconer, of Greenwood.
"Quo Vadis," as presented by Mr.
Harold Nelson and his company, is
a dramatic success and  unequalled
in the history of the stage of  Western Canada.    Mr. C.  I'.   Walker, of
the Winnipeg theatre, has given his
star a scenic and   electrical   equip.
ment equal to that used in the larger
(cities,the entire Carpenter production, which was used in t'hic'igoand
j other   large   western   cities of  the
United Slates, has been  purchased,
j together with a lighting plant which
i will allow superior and  realistic ef-
i fects.    The costumes have all  been
prepared under the direct supervision of  Mr. Nelson and   the model-
taken from the must eminent classical authority.    No expense has been
spared   to   make this the dramatic
sensation of tho year.   In Marcus
Viniciiis,    Mr. Nelson   has   a   pari
which particularly suits his romantic and artistic style of acting, besides affording him opportunities for
great power. His costumes and armor have been procured at greal expense, and are remarkable fur historical accuracy, Ho has surrounded himself by a company of exceptional stength, each one being
especially selected for the part taken.
Mr. Nelson will produce "Quo
Vadis" here on Tuesday evening,
Nov. 10, in the Biden  opera  house.

A good story or a bright repartee

Ihe other day that deserves to live in
this city forever. A year ago
last spring, when railway injunctions
were more plentiful ill Grand Fork:
than the autumnal leaves in llieval
ley of Vallouibrosa, .Mrs. Forbes
Kerby was engaged in drawing a
map of the townsite of Midway under the direction of .lames II Kennedy, chief engineer uf the V., Y. &
E. Railway. One morning while
Mr. Kennedy was inspecting the progress of the work on the map, he
complimented Mrs. Kerby on thi
mpid advancement she was making
with her work, lie expressed surprise at her having been able to get
ihe V., Y. A E. on Ihe map of Midway in so short a time. "Well."
replied Mrs. Kerby, "1 thought it
would be best to complete tho work
before they got out another injunction against the road."
The engine pulling the Great
Northern daily train between Republic and Marcus was wrecked nl
tho former place Friday morning. At
tho time tho accident ucourrcd tho
engine was hacking tip on a siding,
and through a misplaced swilh il
was thrown oh* tho track and over an
embankment, smashing it up considerably. The engineer and fireman jumped, and were uninjured.
A light engine had to be dispatched
from Marcus to bring in tho regular
train, which caused a delay of four

Clmencnt Vashar, who has charge
of the Sally mine at Beaverdell, has

soon as snow comes several tons of
rich ore will be shipped from the
Sally to the Greenwood smelter.
.lames Kerr, a Great Northern
section hand near Curlew, got hi<
face badly smashed last Friday. He
was on a handcar, when a light engine ran him down. As ho did not
see it approaching, it was almost on
top of him before he saw his danger.
He jumped from the car, but unfortunately there was quite a steep embankment with considerable rock at
ihe bottom, which nustrirk, receiving it terrible gash across his nose
and forehead, lie soon recovered
from the shock, and went to a doe-
tor's to have his wounds dressed.

The announcement that the smelter at Everett will be reopened by

It was reported last week that
thc Spokane syndicate who
have blanketed the East Kootenay coal lands with straw locations
had received 07 licenses from the
provincial government, aud tbat
they were daily expecting a large
number more. It looks as if Premier
McBride had joined those who arc
determined to annex Canada to the
United Stales by sections, especially
when it is remembered that a large
number uf buna fide Canadian locators have been denied their licenses.
At any rale, it is difficult tn understand the motive for showing such a
decided interest for foreigners.
Quite a smash-up occurred in the
p. P. R. yards Sunday night. While
switching in making up a train, a

Hok. R. G. Tatlow has added

The McBride government appears
lo he anxious lo exterminate the
crows in this province before the
next election. We can testify from
personal experience to the fact that
crow is an unpalatable dish.

fruit. South Africa has agreed to
accept the policy, with the result
that Canadian goods will now have
the benefit of tho preferential tariff

Kissing the Baby.
There are many mothers who give
themselves infinite trouble aibcut the
big and obvious things connected
with nursery management.—who strive
bravely to, 'be up to dale in the
matter of plumbing, ventilalion and
Infectious diseases — who yet fall
woefully when It comes to certain details. One of the most Important of
these is the disgusting and dangerous
habit of allowing every comer to kiss
and maul the bu.by, says the "Youth's
A baby, no doubt, is a delightful object and almost Irresistible, but that is
no reason why advantage should 'be
taken of his helpless condition to offer
him constant hygienic outrages.
Here is a speech a well-meaning
goose of a young mother made to the
father of her child on his return from
business: "Mrs. Smith called to-day.
John. She lias a fearful cold and sore
throat. She thought the baby wasjast
too sweet for anything, and wouldn't
let him out of her .arms. He took to
her wonderfully, too." Naturally the
baby developed a bad case of the snuffles in a day or two, and then it was :
"The baby has a dreadful cold. We
cimnot think where he got It, we are
always so careful."
This mother and the hundreds like
her should be taught the lesson that
promiscuous kissing is a bad and vulgar habit, productive of much danger
to adults as well as to children. Adults
can protect themselves If they like, but
infants cannot, and so it is the duty of
the mothers to protect them.
Even If they mercifully escape ar
tual infection In babyhood, there still
remains the fact that a silly and unclean hnbit ia formed, resulting In
schools full of kissing children, and by
and by In ridiculous communities of
kissing acquaintances. We may learn
a useful lesson from the Japanese In
this regard. They are not a kissing
race, and the little children do not
know what it means, except perhaps
from their mothers. It Is generally acknowledged that the Japanese babies
are the healthiest nnd happiest of
youngsters, and who shall say how
much wholesome restraint from the
kissing habit may have to do with this
fortunate state of affairs?
To make too much of children is to
spoil them, but In one respect they
should be treated like royalty—If they
must be kissed it should be only the
back of the hand.

Odd Origin of Sea Terms.
How many people imagine that
that familiar word "admiral'' is
anything but a thorough English,
word? Probably the last origin any
would give it is Eastern, Yet its derivation is simply "Emir el liitgli," which is
Arabic for Lord of the Sea.
There is hardly a language that wa
have not put under contribution for sea
terms. The names of the various officers
of o ship illustrate this most'vividly.
"Captain" comes straight from* tha
latin "caput," a head; but "mate" owes
nothing to any dead language. The word
Is almost identical with the Icelandic
"mati," which means a companion fix
equal. The derivation of "cnxswaiv"
would never be suspected. Coxswain was
originally the man who pulled the after
oar of the captain's boat, then known
as n cock boat. "Cook boat" h a corruption of the word ''coracle," and, ns
most people know, the coracle is a small
round boat used for Ashing on some of
the Welsh rivers, such as tho Wye and
Usk. So coxswain comes to US from the
Welsh. Other languages are also pressed
into the service.
"Commodore" is simply the Italian
"Commandatpre" or commander, and
"naval cadet" was originally the French
"candet," which, golnjr a step further
baoK, has the some origin as the word
captain. The reason of this apparent anomaly Is that originally all naval cadets
were younger sons of noble families, who
served as privates previous to obtaining
their commission.
There was never such a person ns
"Davy Jones,'' though we frequently
hear of his locker. Our ought to talk of
"Duffy Jonah's locker," "Duffy" is the
West Indian negro term for spirit or
ghost, while "Jonah" refers to the prophet of that name.
"Dog watch" is another curious cose
of a term gradually corrupted out of it-
original form. Originally it was "podg-1
watch," so described because it lasts
only two instead of the usual four hour-*,
nml thus makes it possible that the name
men shall not lie on duty every day during the same hours, "Dog watches," 10
called, are from 4 to (I and (i to 8 In th"
bailors call meat "junk." Tt Is not n
complimentary term, for junk is nautical
for a rope's end Pome 8.000 years ftiro
ropes were made out  of bullrushei, for
whioh the Latin word is "juneua,1.'
Nowadays we tnlk of "pnrt"i.n*l "starboard." Originnlly it was "larboard" nn.l
"starboard." Starboard has nothing ti
do with stars. It is really "steorboard,*'
Anglo-Saxon for "stew side," because in
old galleys steered by an oar tha oar
was fixed somewhat to Ihe riglitlinnd
side of the stern, and the helmsman
held the ini/iard portion in his right
hand. As for "larboard," it is prob
ably a corruption of lower board, the
larboard side being originally considered
inferior to the other.
"Sheet anehor" is the name given tfl

There is a negro murderer named
Bmith out in Multnomah County, Ore.,
who Is certainly a stickler for his prejudices. There is a strike in tho county,
and Smith objects to being executed on
the only gallows in existence on the
ground that it was built by "scabs."
The inventor of the watch is a mye-
tery, though the place of its invention
is assigned to Nuremberg. The first
watches were called "Nuremberg eggs,"
the first part of the name showing where
they were made, the "ocond telling of
their shape. It was not until the invention of the spiral Bpring in thc fifteenth
century that watches became conveniently portable, and from that timo the

Women are not good tippers and
lack of "tips" 13 Baid to be responsible
for thc withdrawal of twenty waitresses
from the dining-room of the Hotel Martha Washington in New York. The
hotel is exclusively for women, and when
it was opened lirst March one of the features was the Colonial dining-room on
the ground floor, with twenty buxom
young women in picturesque uniforms.
All went well at first, but soon the
guests of the Martha Washington forgot
to give a dime here or a quarter there.
Later on it beeame positively out of
fashion to "tip" in the hotel; but it
seems the fashion of scolding and complaining grew, at least the girls say so.
Then the girls held a meeting and decided to walk out. Thc management of the I
hotel declares that thc girls were dis- j
charged because the hotel wanted to try i
men waiters.
At a recent meeting of the Zoological
Boeiety of  France  Monsieur  Racovitza,
the naturalist of the "Beigiea" expedition, j
declared  his  belief  in   the  existence  of !
the great "sea-serpent."  He quoted with
approval thc views of a Dutch naturalist, Oudemans, who holds that the so-
called sea-serpent i3 not a reptile, but a
mammal belonging to Ihe order of the
pinnipeds, wliich includes the seals.   It
somewhat resembles in shape the extinct
Plesiosaurus.     It   probably   attains   n
length of 2(!0  feet, the head  and  neck
taking one-fourth    of    the  whole, tho
trunk one-fourth nnd the tail one-half.
It never approaches n coast except in
pursuit of  the fish on  which  it  feeds.
Monsieur Bacovitza quoted  the serious
and circumstantial report of a  French
torpedo-boat commander who chased a
pair of these creatures in the China Sea,
and unsuccessfully fired shells at them.
A high silk hat, probably the first ever
worn in the sirmil town of F0£«n, west
of Houston, Tex., was responsible  the
other day for the death of Philip Bunts
of New 'York, who was traveling for a
Bible publishing house in the Fast.   His
attire was that of a clergyman, and when
he appeared in Fagan he was the center
of attraction.   That night IUintz walked
up to the bar in one of the saloons where
the cowboys were drinking and ordered
lemonade.    The bartender  repeated the
order in a tone of voice sufficient for ail
in the crowded barroom to hear.   One of
the cowboys insulted tho wearer of the
silk hat.   The remark was resented, and
someone threw a lariat over the shinlnjf
mark.   Bmitz showed fight and was set
upon.   In the melee he was struck ovef
the head with a six-shooter, suffering *
fracture of the skull.   He never recovered consciousness.
