Fourth Year-No. 88
Grand Forks, B. C, Friday, September 1,1905
Issued Twice a Week
Dominion Copper   Company
People Have Three Sites
in View
Grand Forks   May Win the
Prize if Citizens  Pull
Together
Last week one of the officials of
the new Dominion Copper company
made the statement that tiie smelter
at Boundary Falls would probably
be abandoned, and tbat the company would likely erect a new plant
either at Midway or Greenwood.
The Sun, in its Friday issue, hastened to point out the many advantages possessed by this city as a
smelting point for tbe Dominion company, and adviced the officials to
inspect the many admirable sites in
this in this vicinity before making
a definite decision. Tbe suggestion
appears to have been acted upon.
On Wednesday Mr. W. C. Thomas,
metallurgist for the Dominion (Hopper company, arrived in the city.
Superintendent A. B. W. Hodges, of
the Granby company, and a number
of prominent citizens, showed Mr.
Thomas the smelter site back of Dr,
Averill's residence, which is one of
the two sites selected for the Granby
smelter by Mr. Hodges over seven
years ago. Mr. Thqnias expressed
himself as well pleased with the location. At present, however, he
was not prepared to hazard an opinion as to the final decision of his
company, as he had also been instructed to inspect sites' a|l Midway
and Cascade. As soon as be finishes
his mission he wilt make a report to
the directors of tho company,and the
location for the new smelter will be
decided upon. The objections to the
present location of the company's
smelter at Boundary Fallsare, lack of
transpsrtation facilities and limited
dumping ground for slag. In these
respects Grand Forks is far
ahead • of any other place in the
Boundary, and it also possesses many
other advantages, the most notable
being closeness to the company's
mines in Phoenix, ample water
supply, and a shorter coke haulage.
It is understood that the company
wants a bonus of some sort, and
there was some talk yesterday of calling a mass meeting of the ratepayers
to discuss this phase of the question. This, it appears to The Sun,
would be a wise proportion to carry
out. The Dominion Copper company intends to expend $1,000,000
in improvements in the Boundary
this year, and no effort should be
spared in getting the smelter located
, in this city.   '
The sound of the whistle from the
Brooklyn mine Thursday was sweet
music to the .residents of Phoenix
generally, as it betokened the coming
activity at the mines of the Dominion
Copper Company. It was the first
time the whistle has blown since May
23 last. T. W. Drummond, the local
manager of the company, put on
several men Thursday at the Brooklyn
and Stemwinder, and it is the expectation that the force will be gradually
tncreased from now on, and at the
Rawhide as well,  so that when  the
company gets ready to make its series
of shipments to the imelter, it will be
in a position to do so. An extensive
system of development for all the
company's properties is being mapped
out.

approval of its plans to build 40 miles
along the Similkameen river from
Princeton to Keremeos, The Similkameen and Keremeos railway has
protested that it had been first to file
plans for this same ground. The V.
V. ifc E. replied that the plans in
question were not regular and that in
any event the company was not organized and therefore had no legal
status to file the plans in question.
The hearing was adjourned till Thursday to allow the Similkameen and
Keremeos railway an Opportunity to
reply to this statement. In the main
the companies accuse one another of
an intention to hold the other up.

NEWS OFTHE CITY
Better to Be Born Lucky Than
Rich, Should Be Dave'
Evans' Motto
City Renews Contract With
Granby Co. for Power for
Two Years
I by a number of other old timers, went
up to Midway today to attend the annual reunion of the association.
Dave Evans, freighter for the McKinley mine, is the luckiest man in
the Boundary. Last Wednesday
morning while hauling a 2500 pound
Joad up the river, a 50 pound box of
60 per cent, giant powder fell off the
wagon near the smelter dam, and
both wheels of the wagon passed
over it without causing an explosion.
The funniest thing of the whole business is that Dave doesn't yet know
that he has lost the powder. It is a
miracle that he was not blown to
atoms.
The city council held a special
meeting last Monday night, and renewed the contract with the Granby
company for power for two years at
the old rate.
Dr. J. Williamson Frank, of Victoria, Dominion veterinary surgeon,
arrived in this city this week, and
will hereafter be Dominion veterinary inspector for the Boundary, having been transferred from the New
Westminister district. He will reside in this city.
Jas. Murphy, a "tinhorn," was up
in the police court Wednesday accused of having stolen a watch from
Wm. Lee in the Victoria hotel. The
judge was of the opion that the only
witness was too much under the influence of liquor to place an reliance
in his testimony, and so compromised Jhe case by ordering Murphy-
out of town.
L. A. Manly's hotel in Midway,
the Hotel Swanson, will be opened
to the public tomorrow night
Nearly the entire Sun staff had the
pleasure of laying in bed a couple of
days this week on account sickness,
hence this issue may be a little shy
on city happenings.
Peter McKinnon, a bri tier of Dan
McKinnon, of Jeff Davis k Co.'s store
arrived in the city last Wednesday
from Phoenix, where he has been employed ill the Granby mines, nud left
today for Franklin camp, where he
will work in the McKinley mine.   *
Miss Cosgrove has moved her millinery store to the Case Block, where
she will he pleascrl to meet all old
customers; also new ones.
Mr. and Mrs. Donald McCallum
returned last night from a week's visit
to the Lewis and Clark Exposition ill
Portland.
F. S. H.issey, of Victoria, superin-
tendcnt of provincial police, was in

P. T. McCallum, president of the
Pioneers' Assocition of the Boundary
and Okanagan districts, accompanied
Arthur H. Napper, of the Hunter-
Kendrick Company, who has been
working at the Greenwood branch for
a couple of weeks, returned to this
city last Tuesday, and says he is glad
to get back.

"ie Vancouver photographer, will be
at Blome's old stand, Bridge street, on
Thursday, September 7th, and for one
week following. Mr. Trueman's work
is so well known in this city that he
does not need any special commendation.
John Topp has just sold 1500
pounds of tomatoes raised on half an
acre of land near, this city.
An assay recently at the depth of
eight feet on the Gold Axe, Hardy
mountain, gives $40 in all values.
The fall of Port Arthur will be
vividly shown each evening this year
at the grounds of the Spokane Interstate fair, which will be held from
October 9 to 15. Pain's fireworks will
be used to make this spectacular display. The Fain company makes the
finest fireworks in the world. Manager Cosgrove has arranged for the
most elaborate display. Pain recently
gave "The Last Days of Pompeii" in
Spokane. The fireworks then were
fine but they did not last as long and
were not as good as those which will
be given at the fair in Spokane. The
fall of Port Arthur will last 40 minutes. One of the set pieces is 175
feet long. "The Fall of Port Arthur"
is only one of many attractions which

Grand Employees Give Their
Master Mechanic a Handsome Present
Farewell Smoker in Eagles'
Hall Tonight—Presentation Speech
A pleasant event occurred in the
machine shop at the Granby smelter
at 5 o'olock yesterday afternoon,
when J. C. McDonald, the retiring
master mechanic, was presented with
a handsome silver loving cup by his
fellow workers. Wilh the smelter-
men gathered around him, Jas Cowie
made the following presentation ad-
"It becomes fay pleasantduty, in behalf of the smelter boys and especially
of the mechanical department, to remind you that we are not forgetful of
the fact that we are about to be severed from our most highly esteemed
master mechanic and friend. To say
that we are sorry and deeply regret
the fact is merely a faint way of expressing the sentiment of all the boys
gathered together here in this shop.
In the varied walks of business and
social intercourse, you have contributed abundantly towards inakin * life
pies >ant in the circle in which you
have moved. The hearty interest you
have ever manifested in our wellfare
will never be forgotten. You have
endeared yourself to us greatly, by
your kind disposition, gentlemanly
manner, and amiable character. You
will always have our best wishes for
your future success and happiness,
with a deep sense of your many benefactions and kindness towards us all.
Those assembled here have requested
ine, in their behalf, to present to you
as a token of thc admiration and high
esteem in which you are held by your
many friends, this loving cup, and desire your acceptance of the same.
May it adorn some conspicuous place
in your future home, that your new
friends may also know the love, admiration and high esteem we have for
our late master mechanic."
Mr. McDonald was taken toomuch
by surprise to give utterance to his
feelings, but thanked the hoys for
their handsome gift, and assured
them that the high esteem entertained by thcni of hiin was fully reciprocated. Mrs. McDonald was also
presented with a set of silver souvenir
spoons. Tonight Mr. McDonald will
he given a farewell smoker in the
Eagles' hall by the smelter boys.
Mr. and Mrs. McDonald will leave
for the coast either tomorrow or next
Monday. Mr. McDonald intends
to engage ill business for himself, but
he has not yet decided whether it
will be in Spokane or Portland.
Every man owes it to himself and
his family to master a trade or profession. Read the display advertisement of the six Morse schools of telegraphy, in this issue, and learn how
easily a young man or lady may learn
telegraphy and  be assured a position,

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1905
Regarding the recent activity in
the copper market the New York
Journal of Commerce says: "The excitement that bas possessed the copper
industry dur'n • the last few weeks
has attracted general attention. The
facts upon which the present abnormally high prices for the metal have
been based are of the greatest in'e e t
both in America and Europe. Industrial activity and the war in the Far
East caused a large and legitimate increase in the melting of copper and
the remunerative prices received by
producers stimulated production enormously until now American mines, including those in Canada and Mexico,
as well as those in the United States
are pouring out the metal at the rate
of over 45,000 tons per month; that is
the refineries are contributing this
amount of metal each month. Ex--
ports have been unprecee'e it d, and
American consumption had risen to
almost record tonnage. Of the large
exports 45,000 were shipped to China,
but it has not gone into consumption
at least only a small portion. At the
same time that China has been taking
copper from America, she has drawn
from Australia and Japan about
'25,000 tons, so that a country which
heretofore has been of minor importance in the copper trade has suddenly
loomed the biggest for trade. Much
of the surplus copper held in China is
being carried by largo financial concerns for speculators. There are also
fully 17,000 tons of copper under contract in this country for export to
China during the next four mouths.
Large consumers of copper, both in
America and in Europe, especially at
home, early loarned of tho contemplated movement in the metal, and of
course being convinced of the upward
trend of the market, purchased heavily
for three or foor months in advance.
With producers well sold and the sur-
glus well disposed of to second hands,,
the supplementary buying by speculators and small comsumers naturally
put the market higher and higher,
and a combination of interests who
have engineered tbe present movement!
have caused to be taken up the small
amount of copper available for quick
shipment within the last week or ten
days, until the market is already I'M
cents, and thc tendency still upward,
A record price of 20 cents has been
recorded, as well as   7 cents as a  re
active price. Roth are extreme. The
re-sales of copper by' consumers who
have over-purchased and the offering
of metal that has not yet been shipped
on Chinese account may take a sudden turn in the market unless it continues to be taken up by the powerful
interests from a financial standpoint."
Purgatives Are Dangerous
They gripe, cause burning pains and
make the constipated condition even
worse. Fhysicians say the ideal laxative is Dr. Hamilton's Pills of Mandrake and Butternut; they are exceedingly mild, composed only of
health-giving vegetable extracts. Dr.
Hamilton's Pills restore regular movement of the bowels, strengthen the
stomach and purify the blood. For
constipation, sick headache, billious-
ness and disordered digestion no medicine on earth makes such remarkable
cures as Dr. Hamilton's Pills. Try a
25c box yourself.
The annual public school field sports
will be held on Labor day, Septembea
4th. To be successful from a child's
point of view, prizes are necessary for
the events. On this occasion it is not
the intention of the management com
mittee to solicit towards the prize list
other than by means of this notice.
Those willing to donate prizes, or cash
for the purchase of prizes, will kindly
notify the principal or trustees on or
before Saturday, September 2nd.
Boarders Wanted—A few more
steady hoarders can find first-class
accommodations at Mrs. J. B. Henderson's, Winnipeg avenue.
Throw Medicines to the Dogs!
At best they are unpleasant, often
useless. You have some disease of the
nose, throat or lungs. Doctors would
call it bronchitis, asthma or catarrh
The common root of these diseases is
germ or microbic irritation. Catturho-
zono not only destroys disease germs
it does more, it heals diseased and inflamed tissue. The disease is not only
cured, but its return is forever prevented by using Catarrhozorie, which
is splendid also for colds, coughs and
irritable throat. Remember you inhale Catarrhozone—nature's own cure.
Use no other but Catarrholone—it's
the best catarrh cure made. .

dullest appetite, makes it keen as a

while it is news. It is the
only twice-a-week paper published in Southern British
Columbia. It is not owned
orontrolled by a clique of
politicians, to further their
own ambitious aims; nor by
a combination of merchants
to be usedasa means of lauding their own waies, to the
detriment of their rivals.
The Sun is the sole property of its publisher, and no
one else has any right to dictate its policy. It is printed in the interest of Grand
Forks and surrounding district. When its editor believes he is right, he speaks
right out. He does not
have to consult half-a-dozen
different parties about what
he intends to say.   '
Everybody in Grand Forks
reads Tm: Sun twice a week.
Its out-of-town circulation is
large, and is rapidly increasing. It is therefore the best
advertising medium in the
