At the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Exposition Will Be on a
Large Scale
Building Covering a Ground
Space of 300x150 to Be
The government of Canada will
construct a building at the Alaska-
Yukon-Pacific exposition, to be held
in Seattle, June 1 to October 16,
1909, inclusive, covering a ground
space of 300 by 150 feet.
Win. Hutchinson, Canadian exhibition commissioner, who is now
in London, has been notified by the
Dominion government to leave for
Seattle as soon as possible to select
the site and make arrangements for
the construction of the building. It
has been definitely known for some
time that tbe government of Canada
would participate in the big fair,
but this is lite first official information regarding tbe scope of tbe
In a letter to President J. E. Chit
berg, Commis.ioner Hutchinson
states that it will not be possible for
him to leave London before January
1, and requests the exposition man
agement to select a Bite that would
be best available for Canada. He
also requests ground plans of tbe
exposition in order that the outline
of the building may be worked out
before his arrival in Seattle.
The announcement tbat the government of Canada will be represented on such a large scale as the
size of the site desired .ndicates, has
aroused general interest throughout
the state of Washington. It is apparently the intentian to make a
omplete exhibit of all the varied
resources of Canada, and the building will also house the display from
the Yukon territory. The space
which it is proposed to cover will be
the largest occupied by any one
building on the grounds.
Tbe mild climatic conditions of
the Puget sound country—Seattle
never suffers from extremes in heat
or cold—makes it possible to construct buildings in the winter without any great difficulties, and the
Canadian government will have no
trouble in completing its exhibit
palace two months in advance of the
opening of the fair if the work is
started in January.
There are three available sites
that may be used for the Canadian
building. One is located adjoining
machinery hall on one side and the
forestry building on the other, and
overlooking Lake Washington. Another is a large tract next to the
California state building, and also
averlooking Lake Washington; the
third is below the geyser basin and
at the lower end of the string of
main exhibit palaces, overlooking
both Lake' Washington and Lake
The choice of one of J these
three locations will be offered to
Canada through Commissioner
Hutchinson. Ground plans and all
of the necessary data have been prepared and forwarded to him in Lon-
don. and it is expected the commis
sioner will be in shape to call Tor
bidB for tbe construction of the
building within a short time after
his arrival in Seattle.
The Canadian exhibit will include
a display of our agriculture and horticulture. Our mining resources
will be shown and special attention
will be given to dairying, and some
of tbe finest stock in the world will
be shown in this display.
In his'letter Commissioner Hutchinson states that the work of collecting the various exhibits has been
under way for several months, and
the entire display will be assembled
three months in advance of the
opening of the exposition.

Company Declares Its Tenth
Dividend Out of Net
Stockholders May Soon Get a
Chance to Subscribe for
More Shares
At a meeting of the board ot directors of the Granby Consolidated,
held in the company's New York
offices last week, a dividend of 2 per
cent was declared out of the net
earnings of the company, payable
December 15, 1908. This will he
the tenth dividend paid by the
Granby company. Of the ten dividends, seven were declared at the
rate of 3 percent. The first dividend was at the rate of 1 per cent
and the last two at 2 per cent.
The company has no regular
period for declaring dividends. The
last payment was made in June of
this year, which, with the present
82 declared, make a total of $4 per
share for 1908, as compared with 89
for 1908.
As there are now issued 135,000
shares of a par value of 8100, the
dividend just declared amounts to
8270,000. With this the Granby
Consolidated has paid back to its
shareholders, all told, the comfortable sum of 83,508,630, as follows:
1903, 8133,630; 1806, $1,620,000;
1907, $1,215,000; 1908, $540,000.
The announcement of the present
dividend will be particularly pleasing to the shareholders, significant
as it is following the recent visit of
inspection to tbe mines and smelter
here of President Langeloth and
Vice-President Graves, who is also
the managing director. With the
enlargement of the smelter to 5000
tons daily capacity in the course of
a few monthB, and the upward tendency of the copper market, the
prospects of the company for 190'J
are particularly bright.
If is not improbable that stockholders will soon have an opportunity to subscribe for 15,000 shares of
treasury stock which were authorized
to be sold to pay for an interest in
the Crow's NeBt Pass Coal company,
from which company the Granby
secures its fuel supply.
Get the Right Men
Advices from London, England,
state that among passengers who arrived in England lately by the Cnn-
dian Pacific steamer Empress of
Britain, were several gcntieinen who
had been inspecting the chief mining industries of the Dominion of
Canada as guests of the Canadian
Mining Institute. In discussing the
condition they found during their
visit, several of the visitors talked
freely of Boundary and Kootenay
"The mineral wealth of British
Columbia is, of course, even more
famous than that of northern Ontario. The principal mining districts
of British Columbia which the visitors inspected were those of the
Boundary and Kootenay, where
copper, silver, lead and zinc are being produced by modern methods.
Even low grade ores are being profit
ably smelted, supplies of coke being
obtained nt reasonable prices from
the neighboring Crow's Nest coal
field, and beyond the etlge of continental Canada the party visited the
Nanaimo mines of Vancouver island,
whence coal hns long been exported
to countries along the Pacific coast
ns far away as South America.
"It is obvious," one of the British
visitors says, "that Canada is very
rich in minerals, and large development is to be anticipated. For the
development, it is declared, more
capital is wanted. The emphasis
should be put on the need of men.
If the right men are put at the head
of an industry—men of Bense as well
as science, such as we have actually
seen at work on some of the best
propositions—capital will soon be
Finish Survey to Penticton
The C. P. R.' ha- just completed a
preliminary survey of the route
which the extension of the Spence's
Bridge'-Nicola line may take from
Nicola to Penticton, says the Summerland Review. Ultimately the line
will be continued from Penticton to
Midway, where it will link up with
the Columbia & Western railway,
finally furnishing a C. P. R. line
from Vancouver to the Boundary
Whether the C.P.R. or the Great
Northern railway will be the first to
connect the Kootenay country with
the const is a matter of considerable
speculation. The roads have started construction from opposite ends,,
the C.P.R. from Spence's Bridge
and the Great Northern from Midway, and both are surveying and
building a little more all the time.
The survey just completed by. the
C.P. R. was carried out by Mr. H. E.
Cary, of the company's engineering
staff. He started the work in April
and has just returned to Vancouver.
The line traverses one hundred and
sixty miles in running between Nicola and Penticton, and it is learned
that excellent grades have been secured.
The route, while not given exactly
for publication, lies through the
Similkameen valley and into the
Okanagan, where it skirts the town
of Summerland en route to Penticton. Beyond the latter point in the
direction of Midway the C.P.R. already has a number of preliminary
surveys of possible routes.
It is not presumed that any immediate results will follow the completion of tho survey carr.ed out by
Mr. Cary, but reports and field notes
are now being compiled for transmission to headquarters, and it is
possible another step toward the construction of the line may be taken
next suminer.

New Yale Will Be a Three-
Story Biick Building,
74x120 Feet
Province Hotel Now Under
Roof--A Credit; to the
Work on the foundation of the
new Yale hotel is progressing very
rapidly these tropical late autumn
days. It is Mr. Traunweiser's intention to complete the foundation
tbis fall in order to get an early start
with the brick work next spring.
The building is to be c three-story
brick structure, 74 feet frontage by
a depth of 120 feet. The ground
floor will be four feet above the
street grade. The plans for the
building are being prepared by Robert Mcintosh.
The new Province hotel, which is
.being constructed under the supervision of Arcnitect Henderson, is
now under roof, and it begins to look
as if the proprietor's statement, made
some months ago, that he would
serve his Christmas dinner in bis
new hotel, would be realized. Mr.
Larsen deserves considerable credit
for his enterprise in being the first
to rebuild, and for the faith he displays in the city by erecting so
large and substantial a block. A
half a dozen or a dozen similar
buildings—and the prospects for
their construction next summer are
promising—would effectually drive
the knockers to the back hills and
dispell all doubts as to the future of
the place, besides putting the city
on a substantial basis, thus giving
visitors and the citizens a stronger
confidence in the oft repeated prediction that Grand Forks will, at no
far distant day, be the largest and
best city in the interior of British

HPHE persistency ofthe Tory press
i oi this province to belittle the
efforts of the federal authorities to
deport the Hindu colony to British
Honduras, leads one to formulate
the conclusion that the party which,
but two short weeks ago, howled so
vociferously for a "white Canada,"
really do not desire to see a practicable solution of the Oriental question. We are further convinced
that just as soon as the people who
voted for a "white Canada" realize
that the Dominion government is in
earnest, they will be ready to memorialize Ottawa fo permit the Hindus to remain in Bripsh Columbia.
And it would not surprise some of
us if among the signatures there
should happen to be the names of
two or three M.P.'s irom this province.
IN an attempt to justify newspaper
"neutrality" during political

can possibly be of greater irapartance
to the public than to place the issues
involved fairly and squarely before

sufficiently interested in free and

The Earl of Stanhope stated in
Wiunipeg last week that he gone
west in September with Etirl Grey,
and had visited southern Briiish Columbia and Alberta, touching at
Nelson, Grand Forks, Penticton,
Vernon and other points, lie was
persuaded British Columbia did not
by any means appreciate what valuable assets it hnd. It was full of
undeveloped resources which would
some day prove of the highest value
and importance. The fruit which
was produced in the valleys of
southern British Columbia was unsurpassed by any he had tasted from
any part of the world. He referred
particularly to apples and  peaches.
The matter into which Lord Stanhope is looking during his trip is
the practicability of the establishment in this province by the British
government of an extensive farm
colony in which large parties of
British people could be placed. It
was the idea of tbe visitor tbat a
large number of unemployed might
be brought to Canada in vessels
owned by the government, and that

Eheumatism Recipe
A well known authority on rheumatism gives the following valuable,
though simple and harmless, prescription, which any one can easily
prepare at home:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon.oneounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
Shake well in a bottle and take a
teaspoonful do3e after each meal and
at bedtime.
He states that the ingredients enn
be obtained from any good prescription pharmacy at small cost, and being of vegetable extraction, are
harmless to take.~
This pleasant mixture, tnken
regularly for a few days, is saitl to
overcome almost any case of rheumatism. The pain and swelling,
if any, diminishes with each dose
until permanent results nre obtained,
and without injuring the stomach.
While   there   are   many   so-called
rheumatism remedies, patent medi
cines, etc., some of which do give
relief, few really give permanent results, and the above will, no doubt,
be greatly appreciated by many sufferers here at this time.
Inquiry at the drug stores of this
neighborhood elicits the information'
shat these drugs are harmless and
can be bought separately, or the
druggists here will mix the prescription for our reoders if asked to.
