Two Furnaces Per Day Being
Blown In at the Granby
. Smelter
Review of Mining Operations
of the Company Last
Year
Four furnaces are now in operation at the Granby smelter in this
oity, two having been blown in yesterday morning, and two this morning. Two more will bo started up
to-morrow, making six in blast. As
labor appears to be very plentiful in
tbe Boundary at present the remaining two furnaces will probably be
blown in in the course of a few days
thus operating the full capacify of
the smelter.
At the Granby smelter the past
year, little was done during May,
November and December, results
thus being confined to about nine
months of operations. Therefore
the smelter had but a short time in
which it could get iti recently enlarged battery of eight furnaces in
full operation, the month of October
being the largest of tbe year. During the year many improvements
wore made about this plant, including new Steele furnace buildings,
steel flue chamber, greatly enlarged
ore and coke bunker?, etc. The
plant is now in condition, with
anple coke supplies to maintain a
steady tonnage of 3000 tons or more
per day, even when allowing for
some minor delays for repairs and
matters of that kind. Following was
the tonnage treated in 19(>7.

This is a grand summary of the

and it will be seen that euch year
up to 1907, lias been one of steady
advancement, and despite drawback
1907 very nearly equals 1906, the
grand total being well up towards
aix millions.

In reviewing the stage adaptation

for etlect, no running lliu gamut ol
emotions, uut u plain, straightforward iulu direct from tbe shoulder,
that is accurately aimed and hits
the right spot. It is an old story in
a new garb. -The supposedly erring daughter, the cruel, unrelenting
father, the true, steadfast lover, the
imaginary wrong, the denouement,

K. of P., Dine the
Bachelors
Dancing, Cards and a Musical Program Provided
Entertainment
One of the big events of the holiday season was the dinner tendered
the Bachelor members of Grand
Forks Lodge No. [30, Knights of
Pythias, by the married members of
that order and their families, at the
hall on First Street on New Year's
night, at 5.20 o'clock. After the
bachelors had satisfied the inner
man, the married members and their
wives and families also dined. Altogether ten large turkeys were consumed, and a large quantity of Cranberry sauce and all the delicacies of
the season. The menu has seldom
been equalled at any public function
in the city. It is stated that, 125
persons were served their New Year
dinner by the Knights in the banquet hall of thc lodge room on Wednesday evening.
After the dinner had been served,
the installation of officers for the
ensuing term took place. Grand
Chancellor Jeffery Hammar assisted
by the Grnnd Keeper of Records
and Seals, Emil Pferdiier, of Victoria
who acted in his official capacity,
and acting G. M. of A., F. Miller;
G. P., H. A., Sheads; G. M. of F„
Ernest Miller; (". V. C, Max lierger;
and G. M. of W. A J. Stendal.
The following officers were duly
installed: C. C, 1). D. Munro; V. C.
R. F I'etrie, P., II. M. McDonuld;
M. of A., A C M.'Diinni'll; K. of R.
andS and M. ..; K.. Stanley Hull;
M. of F., Geo. Chappie; I. tl. (.'. Iv

consisting of so.igs, speeches by the
different ollicers Installed, und the
presentation of a Past Chancellor's
jewel, suitably engraved; to the rearing C' '-'•• C. •)• McKenzie, from
Grniul Porks lodge, the Grand Chuti-
cellor making the presentation, and
assisted by Dr. Newcombe and H.A.
Sheads. Tho remainder of the
evening was spent in dancing nud
cards interspersed with ill Ultra ted
songs. The mnrried members were
voted goi.d entertainers, and tho
committee in charge, Jeffery Hum
mar, \Y. V. Stuart, and W, K. C.
Manly, worked faithfully to the end
that ull present had a good time.
Tho attraction at the (Irani! Forks
opera house next Wednesday night.
January 8th, will be "The Bonnie
Brier Bush." This is thu fifth season of Kirke LftShelle's production
of this strong play of life-in Scotland, nnd each succeeding year
leaves it more lirmly entrenched in
tho hearts of the thearre-going pub
lie. It is doubtful if there are ninny
plays which have been more generously praised than "The Bonnie
Brier Bush," and its coming is thc
star event in the local theatrical
season.

FlUDA**', JANUAY3, 1908
Although the civic election is but
t.'ii days away, very little interest is
yet taken in the matter by the citizens. Two or three good names have
been mentioned for mayor, but nothing has lyet been heard of the
aldermanic ticket. Next year promises to bo an important one for
Orand Forks, and tho city will need a
good mayor and board of aldermen—
men who have no axes of their own
lo grind, and who can deal out impar
tial justice to all, In our next issue
we will present the issues involved in
the election, and, according to our
usual custom, pick the winners.
As is customary at this time of the
yoar, a great deal os idle talk i.s being
indulged ik regarding civic elections.
It has been said that some would
disbelieve even though one rose from
the dead. After the experience of
Centre York, Labelle i and Ottawa
there may be found some who would
entertain the opinion that the
I.nurier government is losing its bold
upon the people, lint as to these,
it may be truly said thnt Ihe
wish is father to the thought. Particular significance attaches to the
result in Centre Vork, because the
Conservative leader, R. L Borden,
went into the constituency, together
with a number of Conservative
members of parliament. The gentlemen were selected with particular
reference to their record with respect
to certain charges they had made
against the government, nnd of
course they were expected each to
deal with his specialty. Mr. Ganiey
also gave his experiences, but it was
of no avail. The prestige of the
leader of the opposition, his solid
support of Conservative scandalmongers, together with the presence
of the notorious Mr. Gamcy, failed
to influence the voters of Centre
York. In Ottawa the Liberals won
by over 3000 votes. The Conservatives did not have thc nerve to put
up a candidate, and one Morris,
who described himself ns an   inde
pendent, had the temerity to coolest
the seat, and now he is mourning the
loss of his deposit. In Labelle, the
constituency formerly held by Mr.
Bourassa, the Liberal met with no
opposition, being elected by acclamation. Surely these are signs of
the times. It had been alleged that
the electors of Centre York would
support the Conservative candidate,
being a very strong local man, by the
way, a son of the late Clark Wallace, but disappointment was in
store for the Conservatives, the presence of their lender, with a brnn new
Tory platform, calculated to cure nil
the political ills of the country, was
not sufficient inducement to cause
the electors to swerve from their allegiance. Ill Labelle the government has made a clean gain, for Mr.
Bourassa has long been a source of
embarrassment rather than strength
The gentleman could not he relied
on as a supporter of the government
and it has been Lis policy for some
time past to give aid and comfort to
the enemy, rather thnn nssist the
party to which he professed to belong. The government clearly
makes a gain by winning Labelle,
not only by having a strong udlier
ant in the seat, but hy being re-
leaved of the presence of "Mr. Uour-
assa, who has no place in which to
ventilate his particular hobbies. Sir
Wilfrid Laurier is too warmly en
trenched in the hearts of the electors
ofthe Cnpiml, i., I • ihe sin ss of
an opponent in his ndministralion,
and when ihe Co servatives, 'vnliz-
ing this, declined p.contest ihe sent,
it was nothing shini of nn absurdity
for nn Independent lo attempt to do
so witb any chnnee of success. It
was a ease of nn Independent rushing in where Conservative? fen red to
tread. It all menus one thing, so
clear and so simple lhat "he who
runs may rend"- It means that the
Liberal administration remains firm,
notwithstanding the onslaught of
the disgruntled and ambitious Tories
surely the TorieB will acquire a
little wisdom from the course of history—experience does not appear to
teach them anything, they cannot
read the signs of the times.
A Child's Dictionary
The late Frederick R. Coudert,
the noted lawyer and wit, had a great
fondness for children. He collected
indefatigably the quaint sayings of
children, and one of the treasures of
his library was a small manuscript
volume culled A Child's Dictionary,
and these are some of the definitions
that Ml'. Coudert would read  from it:
Dust—Mud with the juice squeezed
out of it.
Snoring—Letting off sleep.'
Apples—The bubbles thnt apple
trees blow,
Backbiter—A mosquito.
Fan  -A thing to brush .the warm

This Advice
What will appear very interesting
to many people here is the article
taken from a New York daily paper
giving a simple prescription, as formulated by a noted authority, who
claims that he has found a positive
remedy to cure almost any case of
backache, or kidney or bladder derangement, in tbe following simple
prescription, if taken before the
stage of Bright's diaease:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-
half ounce; Compound Kargon, one
ounce; CompoundSyrup Sarsaparillt
three ounces. Shake well in a bottle
and take in teaspoonful doses after
each meal and again at bedtime.
A well known druggist here at
home, when asked regarding this
prescription, stated that the ingredients are all harmless, and can be
obtained at a small cost from any
good prescription pharmacy, or the
mixture would be put up if asked to
do so. He further stated that while
this prescription is often prescribed
in rheumatic afflictions with splendid results, be could see no reason
why it would not be a splendid
remedy for kidney and urinary
troubles and backache, as it has a
peculiar  action   upon   the   kidney
itructure, cleansing these important
organs and helping them to sift and
filter from the blood the foul acids
and waste matter which cause sickness and suffering. Thos* of our
readers who sufier can make no
mistake in giving it a trial.
Christmas Greetings
Chilliwack, Deo. 25, 1907.
At this season of the year everybody thinks about their friends. I
am thinking now about Grand
Forks, tbe "Gateway City," beautiful among tho great mountains, and
of my many friends there.
Surely 1 cannot hope to spend
three happier years any wheie than
were the three years I spent there.
A kinder, more optimistic, cheerful, liberal people I never expect lo
meet again.
To my own congregation there I
owe n debt of love lhat I can never
pay, for J
' They were glad when I wns glad,
And when 1 sorrowed, wept.
Tbey stayed my hands and
strengthened me; and I, what could
I do, but only give back love for
love.
I am thinking, also, of others outside my own congregation, whose
kindness we can never forget. Chief
amongst these are: Rev. Mr. Steele,
of the English church, who was a
true friend from the first hour of
our acquaintance; also Rev. Mr.
McLeod, of the Presbyterian churoh,
who must be revered and loved by
all who appreciate true manliness;
also Rev. Mr. Auvache, of the Baptist church, who was always ready
to do the brotherly thing. Besides
these, many laymen of the churches
—and some who never went to
church—whose names I cannot give
in this short letter, but all of whom
we highly esteem, and invite to call

and see us when they come to the
coast.
The old year will soon be gone—
gone far beyond our reach; and we
will never be able to correct its mistakes, nor recover its losses, nor to
atone for its faults. Divine mercy
will deal with these. We are glad for
the coming of the New Year, because it will bring to us a time of
new beginnings. The past bus not
satisfied us; it has not been what we
hoped for, and we are convinced tbat
it will never do for us to give up
everything because we have not succeeded in all; so we are determined
to make another new start. We are
wiser than we were; we know ourselves heller; we know the world
better, and so we enter 190t> wilh
grcitlcr hopes than ever before.
Let us not think so much of what
wc shall dojiiid be us the year rolls
by; but let us seek to mnke the best
of every opportunity while it is
within our reach.
Let   us   seek   for tbe g. od that is

Dream not of greatness afar;
That glory is ever the higest
Which sliines upon men  as tbey

How am I thriving here? do you
ask. Well, fine. The work here
suits me nicely. With a fine class
of people and other considerations,
we are led to say, "The lines have
fallen to us in pleasant places."
A bishop of a Methodist church
once charged newly ordained ministers thus:
The first yenr you will bo idolized.
Tbe second year you will be scrutinized.
Tbe third year you will be scandalized.
That might be true of some places
and churches, but of the Chilliwack
people we hope for better things,
and are sanguine enough to think
fiat our first year here will not be
(Kir best.

patrons   of  The   Sun and   all my
friends in Grand Forks a prosperous
New Venr, I urn sincerely yours,

MARINE INTELLIGENCt
(By Wirelm.)
At 11:30 last night a.long, rakish
linking craft, hailing from Port of
Spain.Trinidad, B.W.I.,'j"jnd flying a
house flagso badly weather-worfl that
the vessel's name was indistinguishable, and which appeared to be on
the verge of being lorn into tatlers,
came sailing gracefully into the
Port of Yale, rounded to, fired a gun
to windward, and let go her starboard anchor. She was found later
by the deep water clipper W. 0.
Cameron, who was driven in by
stress of weather encountered in the
, Gull uf Vict'iriS The Cameron had
her hutches battened down, and was
still seaworthy. Sim encountered
some derelicts between the Victoria
and the Yale, but eiutit in with
colors flying and her masthead light
in place. The Cameron cruises between Medicine Hut buy and Van
(■payer,
The two craft etood by each other
until 5:80 this morning, when the
Port of Spain vessel piped all hands,
she having been busy all night hoisting in stores.
The weather continued boisterous,
but the Port of Spain boat, being
late, started to get under way. After
backing and filling fur some lime
she finally managed to clear the
bar, and went out through the narrows with every stitch of canvas set,
her band playing "Hearts liowed
Down."
When outside she dipped her ensign, which was answered by the
Cameron and some hulks which
were lying, some on the beach and
others on the bar, while some had
foundered in the squall. Burlier in
the night the piper on the Uniiu run
played the old familiar l.aiiiid,
"Won't Vou Come ISiu-k, Billy
Ikily?"
The Port of Spain hunt encountered heavy- hi.ml seas outside ihe
cape, and pitched und lulled some.
'VVnen off Point Coolgardie she
called on her consult, the trump Jim

herself, having damaged one of her
propellers in Coolgardie Inlet some
two. weeks previous.
The Port of Spain vessel was
about to wear ship and send for
shejter, when ihe Swedish cruiser
Pete Olson hnve hi sight She heard
the minute guns and altered her
courso, nn.I sighted ihe Port of
Spain vessel's headlight. She ranged
up alongside and took the disabled
vessel in tow, and the two squared
away for the smeller. They loft Ihe
Lawrence far behind to wallow along
as hest she could. When in hit. 49*

battleship Cole Murchisoti suddenly
loomed up through thc lug. The
Murchison is of thc Drecdnaught
type, carrying heavy-calibre guns.
She is a very seaworthy craft, hav*
ing   weathered suine  of  thu   worst
storms in the history of Grand
Forks. She has a wonderful breadth
of beam. She cruises between Grniul
Forks and Danville. She, like the
outward bound squadron, wns provisioned for the round trip.
The Lawrence, having finished
her surveys, returned early, leaving
the Port uf Spain, Olson, Murchison and other light draught, cralt
cruising and drifting around in the
latitude of tbe smelter.
The William White, a geodetic
survey ship from tbe North Font,
was iu the harbor also, provisioned
for u long voyage.
ihe \i mle was uiignally a line ul
battle ship, but of lute years bus
been engaged Ul triangulating Vol-
cuuic mountain, and iias accumulated some kelp and grass. As the
Lawrence passed the smelter ihe
rest of the fleet was nianicuvering!
