. A very lajge audience gathered at
the Biden opera house lost Tuesday
evening to see "Why Smith Left
Home."   All present rendered the
unanimous verdict that Smith was
justified in leaving home; that Lon-
dan and New York and other small
eastern and   foreign   villages  had
monopolized the sparkling dialogue
and funny situations abounding in
the    comedy    long   enough,   and
that  he was due out here  in  thc
west,  where the people know and
appreciate  real Jiumor when they
meet it, even on the darkest night.
Tbe play was well staged, and elaboratly  costumed.    The company
is a  strong one, and the members
played   their  different parte  very
skilfully, handling the various situations with a finesse that brought out
all the humor in them.    White 'the
company is an evenly balanced one,
special praise is due Millard Reid,
the star, who played the' *part of
John Smith; Miss Lydia Millard as
Mrs. Smith; Miss Grace Hanna, who
took the soubrctte role of Julia very
"touo'iingly"; Mr. If. J. Brady   as

Robert  Price as Maj.  Duncombe.

this week.
It  Beems to  be an assured fact
that the Granby Consolidated Mining and Smelting "ompany wijl erect
another large smelting plant in this
eity.   This will mean a great deal
more   to  Grand Forks than is apparent at a casual glance.    The increase in the capacity of  the   plant
from 21C0 to 4800 tons a day means
an increased expenditure. Not only
will it mean the employment of 300
or   400   more   men,  but it mean a
larger expenditure in every department connected With thc huge enterprise.    More buildings will^bnve to
be erected to accommodate the extra employes and officials; more coke
will have to be brought in; all  the.
mines   will   have  to    be  worked
on a larger scale; railway facilities
will  have  to be improved, and all
around   the direct benefits which
this cty will derive f orn the pro-j
posed enlargement are incalculable.'
"We are working on plans for • an
eight furnace addition to the Granby
smelter at Grand Forks, B.C., which
would increase  its  capacity   fiom
2100 tons to 4;i0() tons a day," said
.Iny P. Graves, general manager of
the Granby Consolidated company,
to   a  Spokesman-Ueview    reporter
last Monday.
''H. N. tinier, assistant manager,
has completed the survey, and is
working on thc plans. 1 shall submit the plans lo the directors of the*!
Granby eompany on my return
tri;*, and they will decide on
carrying tbem out. It. was at first
planned to make the addition a six
furnace plant, duplicating the present smelter, but we are now figuring
in an Increase of '13J per cent river
that plan."

L. H. Moffntt, managing.director
of the llathinullen Mines, Ltd.;
passed through the city 'yesterday
en route to thc mines from Rossland. A force of men is now at

Bums group, in Deadwood camp,

tho deal are completed.

The Bruce mineral claim, near
Midway, has been bonded by Frederick Keffer, superintendent of the
II. C. Copper company, and J. E.

interest ol the -corporation with
which they are connected

Work has been begun on the

Messrs. Galloway and Robinson
have been working for some Mine till

FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 1904
Canada is to have her own military defense in the event it should
ever become necessary for her to defend herself from foreign invasion.
With this object in view, the peace
standing army of 100,100 men is to
le supplemented by an additional
100,000, giving a total force of 200,-
000 men. These plans have been
brought about by the minister of
militia and General Dundonald, anil
is the most important step ever taken
in the Doininir n along these lines.
Two bundled thousind Canadian
soldiers will be a formidable army
for any fop to meet, as our troops
la<e proved thenn-elvcsunrivaled for
bravery on thc battlefield. The increase will be a strong factor in
maintaining peace in this part of
the world. It is a generally conceded axiom thnt the best nay to
avertwar is to be prepared for it, and
this Caniiilii is doing.
Thk Princeton, B. C, hoard of
Irarle at a lccent meeting discussed
the advisability of levying a provincial tax on all bachelors, the revenue
derived from this source to go towards improving the roads and
trailsi It is quite evident that the
married men have a good working
majority in the bottled-up Similkameen metropolis board of trade,
and being envious of the liberty enjoyed by their single brothers, they
naturally want to drive them out ol
tjie province by heaping unjust tnx-
afion upon their shouldi rs. If this
scheme should prevail, it would not
be long before another body of mm
would spring in thc wilderness advocating the paving pf village streets
with bachelors' bnld pates. And
then— What would Hritish Columbia be witt.out the light-hearted
nn I inoffensive bachelor?
Fnmr all reports Republic enmp
should take on a new lease of life,
and become quite an active minim;
centre during the coming slimmer.
The Hendryx process of treating thi'
ores of that camp bcchis to be an assured success. Dr. Hendryx, who
has been experimenting with his
cyanide system nt the Mountain
Lion mill, is quite satisfied with the
results obtained. A mining boom
in Republic will held this eity, as n
largo amount of the ore from that
camp is shipped to tbe Granby
smelter, and and the business in
geiferal between tho two places
would be greatly increased.
$25,801.00. The salaries paid at
this offir e amounted to $1070, anil
rent, fuel and light 8225.
Word has been received from the
Dominion gouernnicnt at Ottawa to
the effect that they have decided not
so interfere with the bill passeil by
the legislature of British Columbia
two sessions buck dealing with certain coal lands in Southeast Kootenay. The lands referred to are
blocks 4.593 and 4594, in which the
Grand Forks group of coal and oil
claims are situated. The McBride
govesnment can now issue licenses
to all bonafide locators.
Tiik mollification in the terms of
the Grand Trunk Pacific contract
provides that the time for the. completion of the western division shall
be extended until 1911. Thismeans
that British Columbia may not benefit from the great transcontinental
line for another six or seven years.
But two nations, the Japanese and
South Sea Islanders, do not use the
kiss as a form of expression. What
would the young ladies of Japan do
if the war now being waged should
produce a second Hobson?

It is interesting to note, in the
last report of the postmaster general,
for the year ending June 30, 1903,
that the business of the Grand Forks
office has materially increase. The
gross revenue of the Grand Forks
office for thc year was 18,628.66,
while that of Greenwood was

Nature's Flying Machines.
IT le utt extraordinary thing that ths
places where people think that
they can Invent flying machines
ara the jfipitMt*- cif Europe. Pa1 Is,
iV-niia, London, Brussels, each takes
Ma turn, In paragraphs In the morning
p.pus and IliiUtraied Interviews In the
weeklies, at producing flying machine
Inventors; but the man who will succeed must be more familiar than
any townsman or laboratory savant
seems to be with the way In which
Nature's flylnff mnchlnes, th ■ birds,
work. To this the townsmnn will reply
that everybody knows hew birds (ly.
They flap their wings; and what we
have to do Is to invent a machine
which will flap ft* wings like a bird.
Tes; but which bird? In every one
of our undulating Norfolk stubbles
there are. two birds, among many, that
you cannot help observing on the
wing. One Is the partridge and the
other the gull. Let us take the gull
first. It Is a bird with a very light
body in proportion to its expanse of
wing; and when it wishes to rise from
the ground It raises its wings aloft,
back to back, and then with one quick
Stroke—whiff!*—wafts itself aloft
Three or four more similar strokes
fo.low, each one visibly raising the bird
hlirhfr In the air, and then It sails off.
Now it is "coasting"-down an inclined
plane; now Its widespread wings catch
the wind like a sail and It curves upwards; then it wheels and "coasts"
again, and at the turn one vigorous
flap of Its wings shoots It up into the
wind again. Another sail, another
"coast," another flap, and so the gull
could go ori through the livelong afternoon. The albatross, spreading as
much wing-sail as Shamrock II., to
very ne -rlv equalizes Us sailing
power with its coa.-tlng momentum
that It remains in the air alongside A
steamer for, perhaps, half an hour together. \vlthmit ot'(">**Ion for a flap of
the wing. This Is the very highest
development of one kind of Nature's
flying machines.
Now let us look at the partridge.
This Is a heavy, substantial bird, with
great running power, necessitating a
muscular development essentially different from the gull's. The object of
the partridge's flight Is not to loaf
about In the air, always ready to descend at any inclined plane that the
chance of snatching food from the
restless waves may offer, but lo put as
large a distance as possible in the
shortest space of time between Itself
and the danger which compelled it to
take wing. With the partridge flying
is, in fact, merely an urgent improvement upon terrestrial locomotion,
whereas with the gull it is the highest
development of the art of remaining
In the air at the poise most suitable for
d send ng like an^anow in any desi-ed
direction.
From this contrast It Is evident that
the model which human Inventors of
flying machines should set"before thrm*.
stives is that of the partridge and not
of the gull. We need aerial locomotion
as an improvement upon our existing
mea,ns of terrestrial progress. Our flying machine must be a weight-carrier
because It has to bear up a terrestrial
mechanism—i.e., a man; and the partridge gives us a very good idea of the
means whereby this can be achieved.
In cbmmon with all ground-birds—
and if man Is destined to be a bird
at all it Is as a ground-bird that ha
will have to commence his aerial evolutions—the partridge goes off whirring
like clockwork. This Is because enormous power, comparatively speaking, la
Deeded to raise so heavy a bird from
the ground. But when It has once
reached an altitude of, say, ten feet, It
goes on at a tremendous pace, gilding
for twenty yards, then whirring violently again for ten, gliding for twenty,
and so on. Thus the partridge can,
taking Into consideration all kinds of
wind and weather, travel between two
fixed points faster than a gull, provided that the point of departure is
higher than that of destination. This
Is nut generally understood; and it is
common to talk of the amazing power
of flight of such long-winged birds as
gulls and t-nvlfts, although their "power" of flight Is small compared with
that of partridge or pheasant.

...FOR    ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the'('oronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon Tiie News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation lor enterprise nnd originality. This latest move is to place
'('ho News nt the price of 81.00 n
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in Ihe future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such n reduction in price.
Hufjtist as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we ven-.
tine to predict. The News will secure a vast and over-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club ihe Toronto

year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our somi-wccltly giving you nil

The great Slmplon tunnel under the
Alps from the valley of the Rl.one Into
Italy la about half flnltmed, and it Is
now believed that It will be ready for
traffic within two and a half years. Its
cost will be 114,000,000, and this enormous expense has been incurred to
shorten the road between Paris and
Milan only 50 miles and to save grades
of fifteen hundred feet. The length ot
tbe completed tunnel will exceed twelve
miles.
An editorial writer with a taste for
statistics has given to this waiting
world a statement In which women
may feel some Interest. He declares
that he recently stood In a crowded
thoroughfare of a large city and listened to "scraps of conversation" of
fifty women who passed him. Of these
fifty v.'omen, four wen* talking about
cooking and recipes; seven, aboUt babies; twelve were discussing men and
tove affairs; and from the lips of
twenty-seven rippled remarks about
clothes.
Miss Ellene Jnn.ua, a well-known vocalist of Biooklyn, N.Y., is the first
person to possess a glass gown which
can actually be worn and not once
only. It is of spun glass, made In
Dresden, Germany, and was modelled
and cut In Paris, At the Chicago Exposition In '93 there was a glass dress
exhibited, 'which became the property
of the Infanta Eulnlle. but It was only
tor show and could noi be worn. A
full description of Miss Jaqua's glass
gown Is given In the "Strand Magazine" for February.
The Chicago "Tribune's" record of
legal executions and lynchings In the
United Ktnieq In 1001 shows that 118
persons were executed and 135 were
lynched. Of those executed 71 were
negroes, and of those lynched, 107. The
executions were one fewer than in 1900,
and the lynchings were 20 more. It Is
noticeable that of the lynchings only
39 were for murder and 19 for criminal
assault, leaving a remainder of 77 persons lynched for minor crimes. It la
noticeable also that the number of
lynchings in the-Northern States increased from 8 in 1900 to 14 In 1901.
