Grand and Impressive Consecration  Ceremonies
Were Held,
The consecration of Harmony
Lodge No. 37, A. F. & A. M., took
place in their hall Wednesday evening, the M. W. the Grand Master of
British Columbia, the Rev. C. Elisor Sharp, of Esquimalt, presiding,
assisted by James H. Schofield, of
Trail, District Deputy Grand Master;
George Hering, of Rossland, Past
District Deputy Grand Master, and
Rev. E. P. Flewelling, of Phoenix,
Past Grand Chaplain.
The hall, which was elaborately
and artistically decorated, was taxed
to its utmost to 'accommodate the
large assemblage of Masons and
their wives, daughters, mothers and
Bisters.
The ceremony was very impressive, and was much enjoyed by those
who were fortunate enough- to be
present.
Miss Covert presided at the organ,
and the consecration odes were sung
with great heartiness.
The installation, which was private, followed, when the Worshipful
Master, Bro. John Westwood, was
installed W. Master, and the following brethren as officers: Geo. Pat-
tison, S. Warden; Wm. J. Cook, J.
Warden; Homer N. Galer, Treasurer; John Rogers, Secretary; Edward R. Northrop, Director of Ceremonies; Geo. D. Clark, S. Deacon;
Finley A. Sinclair, J. Deacon; Herbert C. Kerman, S. Steward; Harry
H. Spinks, J. Steward; Peter R.
McRae, Inner Guard; Thomas Hal-
liday, Tyler.
After the ,installation the company adjourned to the Liden opera
house, where the ladies bad prepared a sumptuous rej.a-'t, which
was heartily enjoyed. The visiting
brethren were loud in their praise of
the splendid manner in which the
tables were decorated, and it speaks
well for the artistic taste of the
ladies. The costumes worn by the
ladies were very handsome, and,
with the decorations, made up snch
a pretty scone as one is seldem
privileged to see.
The toast list was as follows:
"The King and the Craft," proposed by Dr. Westwood; "M. W.,
The Grand Lodge of B. C. and
Grand Master," proposed by Dr.
Westwood, and responded to by the
M. W. G. M.  in   a   very pleasant
manner; "The D. D. G. M., Past
and Present," proposed by Dr.
Westwood, and responded to Geo.
Hering and J. H. Schofield; "Sister
Lodges," proposed by W. J. Cook;
"Our Brethren Across the Line,"
proposed by W. H. Covert; "The
Ladies," proposed by Dr. Kingston,
and responded to by W. H. Covert.
After songs had been rendered by
Wm. G. McMynn and James D.
Sword, of Greenwood, the company
joined hands and sang "Auld Lang
Syne," and then dispersed, everybody expressing themselves as nav-
ing spent a most enjoyable evening.
F. H. Hale, M. P. of Carleton
county, New Brunswick was in the
city last Wednesday. He was accompanied by his wife and W. P.
Bull, of Toronto, a member of the
legal firm of Gallagher & Bull, of
Nelson. Mr. Hale was piloted
through the Granby smelter by G.
M. Fripp. Like all visitors who
inspect that great reduction works,
he was amazed at the completeness
and modernness of the plant. He
also expressed himself as being well
pleased with the future prospects
of this section, predicting most pros'
perous times when our varied and
unlimited resources are more fully
developed. Mr. Hale is the senior
partner of Hale & -Murchie, proba
bly the largest lumber dealers in the
Dominion, who have extensive in
terests in Ontario and the maritime
provinces, and there is good reason
to suspect that this trip through
this section, his first visit to the
west, will result in their acquiring
timber limits and beginning opera
tions on a large scale in this province.
C. C. Tilley, of the "Club,"   returned last Tuesday from  Vancouver,   where  he had been attending
the Eagles'8 convention as a   dele
gate from the local Aerie.
Anniversary services will be held
in Knox Presbyterian chutrch next
Sabbath. Rev. Irving Armstrong,
of Liverpool, England, will preach
the anniversary sermon in the morning. In the evening the pastor,
Rev. J. R. Robertson, B. A., will occupy the pulpit. Special and appropriate music will be rendered at
both services.
The Ladies' Aid of Knox Presbyterian church will give an ice cream
on the lawn at the church next
Monday evening.

A Kettle Valley Lines Brake-
man Loses Part of
His Foot,
About 5 o'clock this evening Billy
Williams, a brakeman on the Kettle Valley lines, while riding on the
pilot of the engine, lost his hold and
fell, and had the three middle toes
of his right foot cut off. The accident occurred at the Winnipeg avenue crossing. Although Williams
was thrown about ten feet from
the track, he was still conscious when
picked up. The shoe was completely torn from his foot, and it
and the three toes were found lying
on the inside of the rail.
Dr. Northrop was has hastily summoned, and dressed the wounds.
The injured man exhibited considerable nerve during this painful
operation, telling the doctor to save
all he could of the foot.

Capt. Disbrowe is constructing a

The grade on Winnipeg avenue
near J. B. Henderson's residence is
being materially improved by lowering the hill a few feet by means of
the city team and a scraper; The
chairman of the board or works has
promised to make the grade easy
enough to enable The Sun man to
climb it on his wheel. This practically means a 2 per cent grade.

REGISTER YOUR VOTE.
The near approach of the day
when the voters' lists will be closed
makes it imperative that a special
effort should be made to make the
them as complete as possible while
there is yet time. The more complete the lists are the more likely is
it for the will of the people to be
supreme when their votes are polled
on election day. It is to the popular interest that every man qualified
to exercise the franchise should have
his name enrolled as a voter. Every
man should make it his personal
duty, and esteem it a privilege, to
see that his neighbor and his fellow
workman does not neglect or postpone until too late a duty which he
should be all eagerness voluntarily
to perform.
Ross S. Craddock, the local mining engineer, yesterday went down
to Burnt Basin, where he will examine aud report on several properties.

THE RECORDS
Geo. Massie's show window has
been .liberally decorated with the
prizes to be given to the winners of
the sporting events at the union
picnic of the Odd Fellows, Knights
of Pythias and the Ladies of the
Maccabees at Loon lade next Wednesday. The prizes were all donated
by the local merchants, and are both
varied and numerous. Ex-Alder-
nian Sheads says that the big ham
offered as fi st prize in the fat men's
race is virtually in his kitchen now.
The nominations for aldermen
to fill the vacancies in the East and
Centre ward delegations were held
last Wednesday. For the East
ward M. S. Martin, the carpenter
and contractor, was proposed by N.
McLellan and seconded by W. J.
Morrison; for the Centre ward M. R.
Feeney, the blacksmith, was proposed by Dan O'Ray and seconded
by W. D. Davis. As there is no
opposition to these nominees, a poll
will be unnecessary.
Dr. Westwood went to Phoenix
yesterday to participate in the consecration of the Masonic lodge,
which took place in that city last
night.

WHY GO EAST
Over the sun-burned, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just as well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride through the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by travei ng on
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line passing through Salt Lake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enroute to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is the best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a per-
lect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant and inexpensive means of
crossing the continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

Just What You Want
Just When You Want It
GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. . Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good Bervice; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

The Evening Sun job department
is thc best equipped in the Boundary for printing neat pamphlets
and price lists. Our material is
new.    A new broom sweeps clean.
During the month of July the Kettle Valley lines took out ore from Republic as follows; To Crofton, 290
tons; Nelson, 560 tons; Granby, 375
tons; total, 1225 tons. The Great
Northern took 1728 tons to Tacoma
and 352 tons to Nelson; total for
the month, 2080 tons. The total
shipments for July by both roads,
3305 tons. The tonnage during the
month of July was considerably less
'than for the month of June. This
was not due to the condition of the
mines, but to the mability of the various smelters to take the ore. The
mines have made substantial progress
along the line of development. The
Quilp has been operated at nearly its
usual output, and would have exceeded its last month's figures had not the
smelters called a half about the middle of the month. The output was
light for ten days, but during the last
few days of the month there was a
gradual increase, and at the close daily
average was up to the normal. The
shipments to Tacoma were 1400 tons,
and 300 to the Granby smelter. The
contract with the Granby has expired
and hereafter the output will be sent
to Tacom. In the future tha mine
will load 60 tons per day only until
the winze is completed.
Development work is being pushed
ahead vigorously on the extensive coal
measures of the International Coal &
Coke Company's property, which is
situated some three miles west of
Rlairmore, and extends from the railroad south, a distance of seven miles,
says the Blairmore Times. Prospecting has been carried on upon this
property for the past two years, and a
large amount of development work accomplished, most of which has been
confined to a point near the center of
the property. This spring, however,
work was started in several places
near the north end of property, within
a very short distance of the railroad,
with most gratifying results to the
owners. Two main entries have been
started at this point, wagon roads
built, the erection of tipples prepared
for, and surveys run for the building
of the necessary sidetracks, etc., to
connect the mine with the railroad.
The company have secured a section of
land, through which the railroad
passes, and have laid out yards for a
large number of coke ovens. At present they are building a few ovens in
which to test the coking qualities   of
the coal from their various coal seams.
Manager P. A. Paulson, who has personal charge of the work, is doing
everything possible 'to rush the work
along. There are on the property
nine seams of coal, which vary from a
few feet to over twenty in thickness,
and which have been traced and dug
upon the whole length of the property,
some seven miles. The quality of the
coal, which has been thoroughly tested, has been shown to be of a very superior steam and coking quality. This
property has now reached a stage in
its development where it can be put
upon a shipping and producing basis
at any time, and will no doubt soon
beeome one of the biggest producing
mines.
The excursion to Loon lake, which
will be held under the auspices of the
local lodges of the I. O. O. P., Knights
of Pythias, and the Ladies of the Maccabees, on Wednesday, the 12th inst.,
will undoubtedly be the biggest event
of its kind of the season. Hundreds
of people, young and old, will assuredly avail themselves of the opportunity of visiting the famous Washington summer resort, where over
inreet.    The owners of the resort also
provide an excellent program. A
Ferris wheel is in operation, and a
