The Loon Lake  Excursion
, the Most Successful of
the Season.
The excursion to lxwn lake last
Wednesday, under the auspices of
the I. 0. 0. F., K. of P. and the
Ladies of the Maccabees, was the
most successful outing of the season. Over 200 people from this city
attended the picnic, besides a large
number from intermediate points.
All praise the beauty of the famous
Washington resort, and speak very
highly of considerate treatment accorded them by Manager Morgan,
the owner of the grounds. A great
deal of credit is due the members of
the committee on arrangements, who
labored early and late for over a
week, for the unqualified success of
the excursion.
The train left this city at 7:15
a. m., arriving at the lake at 10:55.
The afternoon was devoted to the
carrying out of an excellent program of athletic sports, including
boat and swimming races. There
are nearly 2000 people camped at
the lake, and all took a keen interest in the different events. Prof,
Harmon's 100-foot dive was also an
interesting feature of the entertain
ment provided the excursionists,
From 6:30 until 9:00 p. m. dancing
was indulged in. On the return
, trip, the train left thc lake at 9 p.m.,
arriving in this city at 2 a. m.
The following is a list of some
of the prize winners in the athletic
sports:
100 Yards Dash—J. A. McCal-
Inm, first; W. B. Bower, second; F
Miller, third.
50 yards dash, L. O. T. M., l.O.
O. P., K. of P.—Miss Belle McLaren, first.

Mrs. J. Hapamar won the prize
offered to the person selling the most
tickets.
Harry Sheads won a big ham as
first prize in the fat men's race, and
then some one stole the ham. Now
he's advertising for it.

Re Railway Taxation
At a meeting of the Grand Forks
Liberal Association the following
resolution, moved by L. P. Eckstein
and seconded by P. T, McCallum,
was passed: /
Whereas, The system of taxation
within British Columbia under existing laws and methods is inequitable,
inasmuch as discrimination is made
by statute and otherwise in favor of
railway and other rich corporations
and individuals; and
Whereas, It is enacted by Section
4 of the Railway Assessment Act,
passed in the year 1894, as follows:
"The land occupied and claimed as the
right of way for railroads by railway
companies, and other lands occupied
by the railway company- for station or
engine house, or freight sheds or other
buildings connected with the' actual
operation of the railway, including the
rolling stock, shall be assessed as a
whole at the rate of three thousand
dollars per mile of track (including
sidings) of the railway company situate within the province, and within
the limits of any incorporated municipality ;" and
Whereas, It is further enacted  by
statute: "That no municipality  incorporated   after   the 21st of February,
1895, .shall assess any  land   occupied
and claimed by a railway comf-any as
the railroad right of way, or occupied
' for   railroad stations, engine   houses,
freight sheds, railroad   buildings,   aid-
I ings, or anv of the   personalty,   property of the company, including  stock
or equipment, and the same shall  not
| be subject te municipal taxation;"and
Whereas,   This   total    exemption
| from   taxation   of  railway  property
i within   municipalities,   and     almost
| practical   exemption   from    taxation
without municipalities, as aforesaid^ is
unfair and unjust, more especially  in
those   cases   where liberal aid by sub-       \
sidy, always exceeding tho limit of assessment so fixed by statute, has been
granted; and
Whereas, The financial straits of
the province are in a great measure
due to exception from proper taxation
of railways and other rich corporate
and individual interests, which are
well capable of bearing, and which
ought to bear, a fair and equitable assessment and taxation; be it, therefore,
Resolved, by the Grand Forks Liberal Association, that an early repeal
is demanded of the Railway Assessment Act and of the Municipal
Clauses Act, in so far as these acts
either limit or wholly exempt railway
companies in regard te taxation ; and
we call for a readjustment of the assessment laws of the province upon a
basis that will ensure fair and equitable taxation of all persons and corporations.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 1903
The Dominion parliament is still
.sitting, and it will hardly be through
before September. There are yet a
number of important measures to be
considered, including the redistribution bill. It seems to be expected
in Ottawa political circles that soon
after the elos" of the session ihe
government will appeal to the
people.
Wall Stkkkt has been greatly exercised over the failures of several
financial companies on accdunt of
thc rapid decline in the price of
stocks. As the decline was all-
round and general it does not seem
to have„been caused by any attempt
at "wj-ecking." Some time ago J.
P. Morgan spoke of ' 'indigested securities." Some other financiers
spoke of them as "indigestible."
This crisis has evolved a new term,
''inedible," to describe stocks in
unsalable "blocks." It is said that
Mr. Rockefeller's wealth within afew
hours shrunk to the extent of a hundred miliion dollars. Some of this
lost value may be recovered, but not
all, for the mass of the securities
were overvalued. Fortunately there
was no disturbance in Canada.
Thk "coal" men say they won a
victory at last night's .Convervative
meeting.

It is seldom that a man is as good

It is proposed to start a hall of

It has cost a lot, but Mr. Carnegie

when he can get his speeches printed

Mrs. Jane Burke, or "Calamity
Jane," as she had been known in
the west for nearly 30 years, died
at Terry, near Deadwood, S. D., last
week, and at her request was buried
at the latter place near "Wild Bill"
Hickok. Calamity Jane was perhaps the most remarkable woman
the frontier has developed. By her
strangenameshe was known throughout the length and breadth of the
land. She it was who, according to
Bnffalo Bill,suggested to Brett Harte
the character of Cherokee Sal in his
greatest and most famous story,
"The Luck of Roaring Camp."
Jane shifted for herself from the
time she was 10 years old. At 1.5
she was famous for her skill with a
rifle and as a horsewoman. Before
she was 20 she was celebrated as an
Indian fighter, and was appointed a
regular scout in the United States
army. She was given her sobriquet
In 1872 by Captain Egan, whom she
saved from death at Goose Creek, S.
D. She once saved Jack McCaul
and six passengers by taking the
reins of the Deadwood coach after
McCanl was wounded by Indians,
and bringing it through safely. She
afterward held up Jack McCaul with
a butcher cleaver and helped lynch
him because he had assassinated
"Wild Bill," who had been her
friend. She followed the mining
booms from Mexico to British Columbia. She scouted and prospected in every state in the west,
and she fought men in fair fight and
won. She killed Indians and helped
run down and lynch desperadoes.
She never knew a fear nor a home.
She never claimed consideration because of her sex.

BOUNDARY MINES AND SMELTERS
William Yolen Williams, superintendent of the Granby mines at
mines at Phoenix, in a conversation
with a Spokesman-Review reporter
last Monday, said: "Two new furnaces at the Granby smelter at
Grand Forks will be in operation
within two weeks, the work on them
having been nearly completed, and
with the new furnaces we will work
100 more men. We are now shipping from the Granby mines at
Phoenix between 1200 and 2300 tons
per day. With the furnaces in
operation the shipment will bo increased to not less than 2000 tons per
day. We are now employing 300
men at the mines and 200 at the
smelter. A first class quality of ore
is being taken out of the Old Ironsides, the Knob Hill and other mines
of the district."
done. It is declared that the estimate of 20,000,000 tons of ore in
sight is very conservative. It is
based on a measurement of 2500
feet in length and a depth of 300
feet, while a shaft is already down
100 feet deeper, and in ore all the
way. John Stanton believes the
Granby will make its copper at a
cost of 7 cents per pound.

George L. Walker recently wrote
the following about the Granby
mines in the Boston Commercial:
Granby Consolidated is described
by those who have recently inspected it as a mining proposition of
tremendous possibilities. Its ore
body is fully proved for 2500 feet in
length by 400 feet wide and 300 feet
deep, making a total of fully 20,-
000,000 tons in sight. This ore is
not broken by dykes or other rock
intrusions, and carries just enough
iron, sulphur, silica, etc., to make it
a perfect smelting proposition. It is
figured out that it can be mined at a
cost of 81 per ton, and it is believed
that it can ultimately be smelted for
another dollar per ton, though this
is yet to be demonstrated.
The ore has a value of $4.50 to $5
per ton, yielding from 25 to 27
pounds of fine copper, and $1.75 in
gold and silver. It costs from 1£ to
If cents per pound for refining and
freight on the bullion from the time
it leaves the smelter until it is ready
for sale in the market in New York.
If the ore can be handled and all
costs met with a total expenditure of
$3.50 for each ton, therefore it will
represent only a 7 cents per pound
cost of copper.
The company now has four furnaces and is installing two more.
The six will be capable of treating
200U to 2500 tons of ore per day.
With copper selling at 14| cents per
pound there should be a net profit
of $1.S0 per ton on the ore treated,
or at the rate of $1,296,000 or 81,-
620,000 annually, equivalent to better than a dollar per share ou the
company's outstanding stock, j
At present smelting operations are
ciii'tailed by inability to get'an ade-
vuate supply of coke. The trouble
will be remedied shortly. Coke costs
$6.50 per ton at the smelter. Miners
are paid $3.50 per day, and surface
men $3. It is the plan of the management to continue smelter operations as at present until the matter
of costs has been fully demonstrated,
after which the question^ doubling
the number of furnaces will receive
attention. In the mantime additional  exploratory   work is   being
