Issued Twice a Week
IE ELECTRICITY
C. P. R. May Equip Its Boundary Line with Electric
Locomotives.
Work Progressing Rapidly on
New Power Line from
Bonnington Falls.
TOPICS OF THE TOWN
There is a strong probability that
the C.P.R. will in the near future
■equip its Boundary lines with electrically propelled locomotives. Indeed, the wonder is that the management should not have entertained
the idea sooner, for there can be no
sort of comparison between the cost
of electrically and steam operated
roads, while the cost of maintenance
is much lower in the case of the
former. Electric traction has now
passed the experimental stage and is
today forcing itself upon the attention of railroad managers.
L. A. Campbell, the general manager of the West Kootenay Power &'
Light Co., which is now building a
high tension line from its generating
-Nation at Bonnington Falls, near
Nelson, into the Boundary country,
was in Phoenix a few days ago in
connection with matiers of detail relating to the pole line and and the
location of a substation. One of the
most interesting' features *in connection with the new power line, and
one that is not generally known, is
that the C.P.R. is seriously considering the question of equipping its
road between Midway and Nelson
with electrically propelled locomotives, receiving their power from the
new line now in course of construction.
The new power line will be worked
at a pressure of 60,000 volts, and is
snid to be designed with thc object
of furnishing power to the C.P.R.,
ns thc power available after the
needs of the smelters have been sup
plied is very large. It is also stated
that six 5000 kilowatt generators
have been ordered for installation in
the Bonnington Falls power-house.
This will render available a total
of about 40,000 horse-power.
A large force of men is at present
engaged in clearing the right-of-
way and doing other work in connection with the new power line,
nnd the work iB being pushed with
nil speed.
If matters work out ns indicated,
this will be the first electrically
equipped railroad on the American
continent to haul common railway
cars over comparatively steep grades
by electricity, and it will furnish n
Inrge amount of data to electrical
engineers who aro vainly endeavoring to induce rnilwny companies to
giv* the electrical system a trial, at
least on some of their branch roads,
especially where ample water power
is not only available, but actually
going to waste. The undertaking
will be watched with interest both
on this continent and in Europe.
The news of the mutiny of the
Black Sea fleet reached the Russian
army in Manchuria through the
Japanese, who fired night shells
charged with proclamations conveying the information to the Russian
advance posts, scattering the proclamations broadcast.
The board of licensing commissioners met this afternoon and decided to grant permits for one month
to all the saloons and hotels in the
city. At the expiration of that
time it is expected that liquor by
lnw now before the city council will
have been passed by that body.
Geo. Taylor, the local contractor,
has just completed a ten days' government job repairing the wagon road between Christina Lake and the Bull
Dog tunnel. He employed ten men.
Two new bridges were constructed
and numerous rock slides were removed. The road is now in first
class condition for mining men who
desire to get supplies and machinery
into the Burnt Basin district.
FIRE ATJASCADE
Business Portion  of Town
Is Practically Wiped
Out.
Loss Is Estimated at Between $10,000 and
$20,000.
A disastrous fire, wiping out nearly
the entire business portion of Cascade,
broke out at about 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The Cascade hotel,
owned by Charles H. Thomas, with
the barn and livery stable of J. A.
Bertois, in the same block, and William Wolverton's general store, on
the opposite side of the street, were
totally destroyed. Uunfortnnately,
there was little or no insurance, and
the loss, which is variously estimatsd
at from $10,000 to 820,000, will fall
heavily on the sufferers. While there
is no absolute proof, circumstances
indicate thut the fire was of incendiary origin. It started in the barn
of the Cascade hotel, and as there
was a high wind prevailing at the
time, the Hames devoured the doomed
buildings in a short time, as the town
was not equipped with apparatus capable of effective use in a conflagration
of such magnitude. This is the third
disastrous fire that has occurred in
Cascade.

Granby Smelter Making Copper at a Cost of Nine
Cents Per Pound.
With New Furnaces in Operation Capacity Will Be
Greatly Increased.
Granby's two new furnaces are expected to be ready for service early
next month. Wben they are blown
in they will enlnrge the capacity of
the plant 40 per cent, and the management believes that they will make
possible an increase of 50 per cent in
the company's copper production
and net earnings.
At present Granby is making an
nvernge of nbout 1,300,000 pounds
of copper and earning approximately $80,000 net monthly. ItB copper is costing, all expenses of refining, selling, management, taxes, etc.
included, between eight and nine
cents a pound. One month recently
the cost figured only 8.03 per pound.
After July the production is expected to be nearly 2,000,000 pounds
monthly, say 22,000,000 pounds
annually, and the coBt to be not
over eight cents a pound. On this
basis tbe Granby will earn, on a 15-
cent copper market, more thnn $1
per share on its 1,350,000 shnrcs of
stock, or on the basis of B0 cents per
share on a 13-cent copper market.
It is the intention of the management to ultimately increase Granby's
production to 5,000 tons, and possibly to 10,000 tons, of ore daily.
All of the increased capacity will not
be paid out of earnings, however.
The company has 150,000 shares of
stock unissued in its treasury,' nnd
the lnrgest stockholders express the
belief that this can be sold within a
year or two at par, 810 per share, as
the coming earnings and dividends
should cause a demand for it at that
price.
It is estimated that the Granby
already has 10,000,000 tons of ore
blocked out, and 15,000,000 tons
more partially developed by tunnels,
pits, upraises, etc. Its vein is 700
feet wide, nnd is a self-fluxing
smelting ore. The ability to handle
this oro (including mining, transportation; smelting, converting, re-
lining, selling and management) for
83.50 to 83.75 per ton has already
been demonstrated. As the ore
yields about 26 pounds of fine copper and 81.75 in gold nnd silver to
the ton, it hns a present average
value of 85.50 per ton, and, on n 13-
cent copper market, would bo worth
approximately $5 per Ion, • Should
Granby's production be increased to
5,000 tons daily and its not profit
maintained nt 81.50 to 12 per ton,
its annunl earnings would amount
to 82,625,000 to 83,500,000, or at
the rate of 82 to 82.75 per share on
its capitalization. It will be seen,
therefore, that there is a possibility
that Granby may eventually be
worth 820 to 830 per share.—Boston

SINSET SAUNTERINGS
The minister of pnblic works has
reported in favor of Kelly, of Win
nipeg, getting the contract for thi
Vancouver post-office. The matter
is now before the cabinet, and an
order-in-council will be passed in a
few days.
Both parties met in caucus Tuesday. The question of an increased
indemnity for members and senators
came up at each meeting. The
Liberal caucus wns lnrgely attended.
It is understood thnt the matter was
threshed out fully. Tho round robin, which was presented to the government, Wns for an increase to
82500 for each member and senator.
The scheme also involves an increase
of ministers' salaries, as well ns
85000 or more for tho leader of the
opposition. In addition to this it
was suggested that there be an increase in judges' salaries. The matter was discussed at length at the
Liberal caucus, but, no decision wns
nrrived nt. The subject wns also up
at the Conservative caucus. The
question has been left in the hands
of the premier and R. L. Borden,
leader of the opposition. Needless
to say, there is no objection to the
increase in indemnity on the pnrt
of either party. The likelihood iB
thnt nothing will be done in the
mntter this session. -
Th*e V„ V. & E. railway bill
passed its third reading in the senate
nnd was unopposed, the Canadian
Pacific railway having decided to
withdraw its strong opposition. The
bill will now become law, and James
J. Hill will be permitted to build
a line deflecting into United States
territory from Grand Forks to
Princeton, B. C.
Fruit growers will have a chance
to win some large prizes nt the Spo-
knne interstate fair this fall. The
new premium list shows a number
of new classes in the fruit depnrt-
ment. Tho clnss for district nnd individual displays has been revised,
and 8800 is now given in this one
class nlone. The complete premium
list will be mniled to anyone desiring
it, on application tn the secretary at
Spokane.
It is reported that wealthy Chinese of Tekhoi have imported thousands of Japanese fans, on one side
of which they havo had rough
sketches printed of Americans roughly treating Chinese, and on the other
side sketches of buffaloes being
beaten and ill-used are printed.
Letter press accompanies the pictures calling upon Chinese to fight
the Americans by boycotting their
goods. And all because Uncle
Sam's over-zealous inspectors considered it advisable to fumigate
those members of thc Chinese upper
ten before they could be permitted
to set foot on U. S. soil. The movement promises to become serious.
Boult, Captain Forrest, Sergeant
Richardson and Captain Stuart, all
of British Columbia, are included in

noh shooting matches nt 800, 900
and 1000 yards.
The starting up of one of the lead
stacks at the Trail smelter is good
news. It is to be operated continuously, and together with the enlargement of the refinery will demonstrate in the east that the lend
industry out here is once more coming to the front, and will fully
justify those who hnve urged upon
the government the strong necessity
nnd advisability of aiding the industry to get a fair start.
A Bisley camp cable snys Lieut.
We understand that about August 1st it is the intention to blow
out all six of the furnaces at the
Granby smelter for two or three
dny, for .the purpose of connecting
up the two new nnd larger furnaces
now being installed, ns well ns the
new flue dust chamber and new
smokestack.
The finding of platinum in thc
rivers and creeks of the Princeton
district, says the Similkumeen Star,
is illustrative of the wide vnriety of
minerals to be found here. Granite
creek and the Tulnmeen river have
been especially productive of this
valunble metal. In the enrly dnys
of alluvial mining here the search
for gold coused miners to overlook
the then less precious platii'ium,
much of it being allowed to waste in
tailings. Now, however, with the
greater demand for platinu'lVi and
increased price, prospectors" and
placemen should piy moie attention to its discovery and production.
This season there will be uhusual
low water in nil the rivers and
creeks, due to the light snowfall of
last wintert The water is now lower
than for many years past at midsummer, so there is every probability of extreme low water in thc
early fall. The exposure of bar nnd
bottom will thus be greater and rich
diggings of platinum and gold may
reasonably be expected.
President Roosevelt has declined
an invitation extended by the commonwealth government to Miss
Roosevelt to visit Australia with
Secretary Taft nnd members of his
fnmily, which was accompanied by
the assurance that the party would
be cordially welcomed by all

Rich Strike in Poplar Camp.
Directors of the Great Northern
mine just arrived in Nshon from
Poplar report the discovery of a new
lend of fabulous richness tipon the
Swede group, one of their properties
there. The lead is quarts, from one
to two feet wide, is uncovered for 50
feet and assays, they say; run from
85000 to $10,000 per ton. A-meeting of tt.e directors was held Thursday, nnd the Swede will probably be
floated ns a separate mining venture.
