The B,  C. Coal  Company
Sends Out an Advance
Guard,
Two wagon loads of supplies and
camping outfits left the city, yesterday for the North - Fork country.
'A force of workmen composed of
Ab. Fee, West Fee, Angus McDonald and Wm. McDougall accompanied this outfit, and, under the
foremanship of Joe Wiseman, they
will repair the trail from the Franklin camp road, at the forks of the
river, to the B. C. Coal company's
lands, so that that machinery and
supplies can be got to that point.
The teams will be taken as far as
the forks of the river, about 30
miles above this city, and from there
the supplies will be packed on horseback as the workmen advance.
C. V. Corliss., M.E., of Montreal,
a graduate of McGill college, who
was demonstrator at that institution
last year, accompanied the party,
and will oversee the work.
It is estimated that it will take
three or four weeks to put the trial
in a passable condition. As soon
as the' work has been finished, the
B. C. company's engineer, Wm.
Blakemore, will take a diamond
drill up to the coal measures, and
active prospecting and development
work will be commenced The company has about 82000 on deposit in
a local bank for the completion of
the trail.
VICTORIA DAY ATJIDWAY
A large delegation from this city
will attend the Victoria day celebration at Midway next Monday, and
the affair promises to be a big success. A special train will leave the
C P. R. station at 8:00 a. in., arriving at Midway at 9:40. Besides
a large number of excursionists
from this city, the Grand Forks
baseball club will also go, and a
three-cornered contest, between Phoenix, Greenwood .and Grand Forks
'for a purse of 8100 will be one feature of the days' sports.
The Grand Forks Amateur Opera
company will aceompany thc excursionists as far as Greenwood,
where a performance of "Pinafore"
will be given in the evening after
the train returns from Midway. The
train will remain in Greenwood until after the performance, when it
will return to this city.

A BIG HIT.
"A Wise Woman," the comedy
farce by Wilfred Clarke, has, according to, the reviews seen of thc
production, scored thc most emphatic kind of a hit. It is serving
as a vehicle to display the talent and
ability of one of America's daintiest
and most fetching comediennes,
Marie Lamour, for the past several
seasons with Augustin Daly's company, and she is credited with having scored very strongly in the production.

The one we have in mind is the propensity of the youth of this city to

The practice is of too barbaric a nature to be tolerated, and if it can't

Morgan had been -acquitted of the
charge of criminal libel, preferred

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage, brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take * a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the. Rooky Mountains in
view ofthe grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by travelling on
the Rid Grande' system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of (lie World,"
thc only transcontinental Hint passing through Salt Lake Cti\' (Hen-
wood Springs,/ Lcadvil^AiHiloiMdo
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and westj and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair" ears,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
leet dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion care'
each in charge of a competent glide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. .\o more
pleasant and inexpensive •means of
crossing,the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
The Lucille Dreyfus mine at Danville is showing up well. There is
now on the dump of the tunnel
level uopon which the hoisting machinery is in operation 150 tons or
more of ore, the value of which is
said to be $160 per ton. The excavation for the station has developed
ore '24 feet in width, of which eight
feet, according to a statement made
by the foreman, ia quite rich. To
judge from his report, the full 24
feet of width of the vein is all pay
ore. It is undoubtedly a great showing. The ore is strictly of a smelting character. The winze is down
135 feet below the tunnel level. It
is confidently believedin Danville
that the ore at the bottom of the
winze is richer than any ever before
found in the mine, and certainly
some of the ore on the dump, said to
have come from the winze, is evidence that the belief is founded on
fact.
Two furnaces are now running
full blast at the B. C. Copper company smelter. The second furnace
was blown in early last week, and
Supt. McAllister expects to keep
them in heat unless the old story
concerning Fernie coke is repeated.
The electric current was turned
on, last week, to one of the large induction motors which ate being installed by the Granby company in
the new compressor building at
Phoenix, and the huge machine
ran smoothly. Later, when the
rope connection had been made, one
of the 30-drill compressors was
operated without a load, and worked
with equal satisfaction to Supt.
Williams. E. E. 'Miller, of Seattle,
representing the Westirighouse Electric & Manufacturing company, of
Pittsburg, who manfactured the motors, was present to witness the test,
as was also R. P. Williams, the
Boundary representative of the Canadian Rand Drill company, who
furnished the compressing engines.
The latter gentlemen were also satisfied with the run of the machinery.
Last week a heavy tonnage was
added to the shipments from the
high-grade properties in Greenwood
camp to the Trail smelter,
James D. Sword and W. T. Smith,
of Greenwood, have bonded the
Bell, apromisfng property at Baav-
erdell, and inteud to develop the
same. It is a high-grade property
originally located by the late Alex
Wallace and J. T. Bell.
It said that shipments of 200 tons
a day covld be easily maintained by
the Morrison mine if the C. P. R.
would construct 5200-foot spur from
tracks to the property.
The Mother Lode mine is easily
keeping ahead of the ore requirements of two furnaces at the Greenwood smelter. Nearly all the storage bins at the smelter are filled
with ore.
