PRESENT OUTLOOK  AT FORT GEORGE  The Tribune Offers Information of New Town  In view of the magnet-like effect of  the Fort George district "boom" on  settlers in the Boundary district, we  publish the following interest ing facts  from the Tribune, published at Fort  Georae:  There are two classes of people who  should not come to Fort George. One  is the man who is looking for work,  and the other the man who is broke.  For the benefit of the first we may say  that there is no work going on in any  portion of the Grand Trunlc Pacific  line in this vicinity; nor is it likely the  railroad will be here in two years, and  may possibly be three. What little  local work is to be had is mainly con  fined to survey parlies and road building. With the exception of packers,  the survey parties usually, bring in  their own men. - With respect to road  building you must be a Conservative  real estate dealer, or else have a pull  with some one in authority. The  wages (road building) are $3.50 per  day. .v. And this is no p'ace (or a hotel  clerk, for there are no hotels.  ' But there is a class of people that  should come to the district. And in  this class is desired the man who is  looking for land (either for purchase  or pre-emption). The land for preemption, however, will not be found  within a stone's throw of here, for it  must be kept in mind that Fort George  is one hundred years old, and land  pilots have been here for years. But,  nevertheless, land can be found, if the  man has p-1-u-c-k and goes out a little  ways for it. No man, no matter how  tall he be, can pluck plums from a  chestnut tree.  If you are a particular man, want  land and have a desiie to know what  this country can do, buy a ticket at  Vancouver, B.C., get off the train at  Ashcroft, take the stage from there to  GRANBY PROPERTIES WILL  BEfEXAMINED BY EXPERTS  shall have further ad-  Directors Hold Meeting���G. L. Walker, a Copper \ Authority,  Makes an Optimistic Prediction as to Granby's FuttJre  ���Outputjfor First TJhree Months of This  YeattShows 25 Per Cent Increase.  i* ' ' .. . '  >    . 'i1 < . ,  The slump in Granljjy shares con  tinues an all-important fippic in mining  circles. The directorial the company  met at the New York oflfce on Tuesday,  when Dr. Sussman, * life expert engineer who examined ttye mines, presented his report. Jay r. Graves, vice  president and general manager of the  Granby was unable .{b be present,  being in California for nit health. He  is now en route from ;|he south and  will probably visit thymines in the  course of a few days' and be ready to  make a report at thej-next monthly  meeting of the company, in New York.  A. B. W. Hodges,|until recently  local manager for the Gijanby company,  was interviewed in NewkYork while en  route to Peru to take' * position with  the Cerro de Pasco company. Mr.  Hodges declined to comment in any  way upon the attitude of the Granby  officers and directors, who resent the  imputation that they pad knowledge  of the reported limited ore tonnage at  the mines. "I was 4erely an em.  the company,"  said   Mr.  comp��hy:  "and as an employee, it would  ployee   of  Hodges,  be improper for me to JMiy anything."  Granby shares are noimdling around  $46, but comparativelypttle stock has  changed hands. It is : tated that none  of the directors have e ther bought or  sold at the low figures. V .-. J  At the mines in Phoeiiix the pre shipments are normal and appear to have  in no way been effected jjijr the stock decline. During the first three-months of  * y  time to time purchased additional  properties, all of which, I understand,  are of some demonstrated value, and  it owns more than 900 acres of mineral  ground.  "The charge that the management  was not warranted in increasing its  smelting"capacity without first determining beyond question the extension  of its ore deposits would be perfectly  justified were it not for the fact that  very extensive diamond drilling has  been done. References are made to  this exploration in the company's past  annual reports, and the result of that  drilling is .declared to have been satisfactory. So far as I^call no official  statement has ever been issued to stock-'  holders calling attention to the favorable reports on the property by any of  the numerous engineers who have examined it. In view ot this it is somewhat surprising that the first unfavor  able opinion expressed should impress  the management that the time had arrived for such extensive publicity as  is being given this particular engineer's  report. '        ">"'-  "- \  ']  "Unfortunately Jay E."'!G}raves,*'vice|  president and general manager, the1  man who developed the property and  financed the company, is now in California recuperating from a severe illness.  If it were not for his present physical  inability, he would be on the ground  prepared   to give  stockholders a de-1  now 111 progress  vanred."  It is understood that sentiment at  the meeting was divided between the  advisability of making-public the technical , report of the engineer as submitted to the directors, or of waiting  ���until it could be checked up by,the  yice president and general manager and  possibly modifying circumstances shown  Some pf the directors hold that, after  all, the opinion of one mining engineer  could not be final and that the situation would only be confused by attempting to make a positive statement  about the condition of the mine at  this time.  '   It is expected that a detailed report  will be made to stockholders as soon  as Vice President Graves has come  forward with his side of the case.  , SMlsnect Not Clearly Uideritoirf  The Boston News Bureau says :  The statement of the  management  that a recent   investigation   of underground ore reserves reveals only 6,000-  000 tons "available for sloping" is not  clearly understood.    For instance, the  last annual report covering operations  for  the  year  ended   June   30,  1909,  stated that "ore reserves are largely in  creased and we have ore  in  sight for  many  years to come."    This was the  statement  of General Superintendent  Hodges, recently resigned. '      -1  The present ��� price tor the stock  would indicate that in the opinion of  some stockholders this 6,000,000 tons  measures the maximum ore possibilities. This; would :;seem ^ to , be*T8t*j  extreme a;view~to take'of the situation.1  "Available for stop'ng" is a term ordinarily applied to; ore reserves which'  have been blocked-i out on ��� at.-testa!  three sides.

The returns of the British Columbia  Copper company for January and February of this year indicate net, profits  of $73,500 for the two months. The  copper output was 1,339,707 pounds,  with 15,151 ounces-of si'vi rand 51073  ounces of gold. After crediting these  gold and silver values the company  were able to lay copper down in New  York refined at a cost of less than  eight cents per pound.

A  dinner was given and around the table  a number of the friends of Mr. Grier  made merry in speech, song and story.  J. VV. Grier is the pioneer newspaper man of the Boundary, having  been connected with the Midway Advance, the first weekly in the district,  about fourteen years ago, and since  that time has been a member of the  fourth estate in Greenwood.

McRae Resigns  At a special meeting of the Phoenix  Rifle association, held in the city hall  last Saturday evening, Alex. McKae,  who was leaving town, tendered his  resignation as captain. A motion to  accept the resignation and tender Mr.  McRae the hearty thanks of the association was moved by D. Paterson and  seconded W. Delahay, each of whom  expressed the general regret of the  members and the loss the club will  susta:n in Mr. McRae's departure.  When nominations for captain were  called for, David Whitton was unanimously chosen. T. A. Love was reelected secretaiy treasurer of the association. A fee of $1.00 will be levied  on the members to defray the expenses  of approaching season.  Greenwood and Mother Lode teams  have opened the baseball season in the  Boundary; the score was 19-12 in favor  of the miners.  ore will naturally leave gating holes,  to the casual observer there appears to  be many millions more enblock to  draw from, and the diamond drill is  busy exploring new ore areas.  Like a hero in timeof trouble, Geo.  L. Walker, the copper authority of the  Boston Commercial, comes forward  with no uncertain words predicting a  bright future for Granby. Mr. Walker  visited the properties here about three  or four years ago for his personal  information and his opinion is at  least refreshing amid the pessimistic  attitude of the stock exchange. He  says:  "Granby's sharp decline of 74 points  has done more to unseat confidence in  copper mining shares than almost anything else that has happened. The  mining engineer who recently examined  the propei ty raised the question of  future ore supplies. He credited the  company with approximately 6,000,-  000 tons blocked out ready for stoping;  but is understood to have expressed the  opinion that this marks the end of its  ore resources. He is said to have obtained his infoimation chiefly from an  examination of the maps of the property. Officials of the company are  quoted as declaring that directors have  neither sold nor bought any of the  stock, their object in taking this attitude being to avoid the possible charge  of manipulation for personal profit on  advance information. The stock at  the low price, $37, represented the  actual net value of the ore blocked out  only and did not take into consideration the investment of nearly $1,000,-  000 which the company has in the  Crow's Nest Coal & Coke company.  The latter investment is good, regardless of the extent of Granby's ore  bodies.  "I am satisfied that Granby's ore  bodies cover an area approximately  3,000 feet long and 2,000 feet wide  and have an average thickness of 200  feet, making a total of about 75,000,-  000 tons of ore. The property has  been examined in the past by a score  of engineers and mining men, all of  whom have attes'ed to the great extent o( its ore deposits, their estimates  ranging from 15,000,000 tons demon,  strated in the mine, to moie than 50,-  000,000 tons assured in the main deposit alone.    The company   has  fiom  "I want to go on record with the  prediction that coming developments^  diamond drilling, production, earnings  and dividends will cause Granby stock  to sell as high as it ever did and be  worth the price. When I personally  examined the property I found all the  evidence that could be desired of the  persistence of Granby's ore bodies to.  depth and their extent laterally beyond  the limits of the development work  accomplished up to that time; and I  found nothing which gave me any occasion to doubt that the mine would  continue a large producer and dividend  payer for generations to come."  Directors' Mediae  New York, April 5 ���The directors  of the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power company, limited,  met today and discussed the report of  the engineering party which recently  inspected the property and reported  that the ore in sight ready for stoping,  only totaled about 6,000,000 tons, instead of being enough for "many years  to come," as stated in the last annual  report. The tonnage reported would  hardly last five years it the company's  enlarged smelter were run at full  capacity.  The recent inspection was made by  President Jacob Langeloth, George C.  Clark, Jr., one of the directors, and  Otto Sussman, an engineer. It was  made in the absence of the vice president and general manager, J. P.Graves(  who has had full charge of operations  for a number of years and to whom  the officers largely gave discretion in  developing the property.  Mr. Graves was expected to attend  today's meeting to explain the discrepancy in the reports. He is ill in  California, and sent word that he hoped  to be abie to come to New York in  time for the directors' meeting next  month. Meanwhile the management  contented itself with the following  statement:  "In view of the unfavorable reports  that have been given to the public as  to the condition of the Granby mine,  the directors, at their meeting, decided  to order a full investigation by well-  known experts for the purpose of reviewing the said report and ascertaining the exa.*t condition of the mines.  This examination, to be effective, will  take several months and may not be  commenced until certain  explorations  thern has acquired a very considerable  tonnage of ore.  Bexlif Coatest  In the Phoenix opera house next  Monday evening Scotty Lackie will  don the gloves with Billy Biner, the  welterweight amateur champion of  British Columbia. Both are said to  have quantities of science ready to turn  loose on this occasion, and local enthusiasts of the fistic art are looking  forward to the event with much anticipation. Good preliminaries have also  been arranged for the evening.  Scottish Prima Donna Coming  The world-renowned Scottish prima  donna, Miss Jessie N. Maclachlan;  Barnaby Nelson, tenor robusto; Craig-  hall Sherry, refined entertainer, and R.  Buchanan, pianist and conductor, will  appear in Phoenix opera house on  Thursday, May nth.  and will then ship to the  British  Columbia smelter.  BaioMt to Mr. Miller  Ernest  Miller,  M.P.P.  for   Grand  Forks riding, was  tendered a  compli  mentary    dinner    in    that    city    on  Saturday  evening  last   at   which   85  guests   sat  down.    The   tables   were  very prettily decorated with flowers and  were loaded down with all the delicacies  of   the  season.    After   dinner  cigars  were provided and the balance   of the  evening was spent  in short  speeches,  one of the noticeable features of the  evening being the almost total absence  of  politics  in  any   of  the  speeches.  Mayor Clark presided   over a lengthy  toast list and a number of happy remarks were made.  Monday will be payday; look out for  the land shark and keep at a safe distance.  jira5HSHSHSH5^5e^2SSSeSaSHSHSESH5aSESaSESa5aS2S3Sa525asa5E^H5?Sa5B5asa  "l April 7, 'io  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

M*N��otn.  </>  Saturday, April 16, 1910  -While  the ��� legislature is composed  of "nfen'elected byhhe people to be the  lawmakers and a governing  body for  the general 'good of the province as a'  whole/it'is'also composed of representatives' 'whose duty itis to intelligently  r place* before'the parliament the importance'of'theirf respective districts and  the'e-ssential! requirements of each for  their individual welfare, as  well as to  represerit the"pulse of the electorate in'  iriatteni of provincial moment,'*' so that  legislation for and-'development' of the  variousdivisions will'result in the coun'  ��� try's upbuilding on a substantial' basis.'  That'the Grand FbrkVrepfesehUiivej  Ernest -Miller," entered' the" British'  Columbia Wuse with a clear"grasp of  ���the -duties devolving upon him was  fairly evinced'during the recent session  al Victoria.1' Although a new member,"  KeXwat-'the'mover of the address in  reply to'the' speech 'from ��� the* throne,  ��� and tils' maiden speech  was  an  able  effort.'In committee work* he rendered  valuable'assistance/w/jile his efforts on  * behalf of * his constituency resulted in  raising the customs duties against that  country, but lowering them lurther in  favor of Great Britain.  The most  important aspect of the  crisis and its solution is the effect it is  likely to have on the future relations  between Canada and the United States,  not merely economically but politically,  The mere fact that  the  statesmen of  the greater country found   themselves  constrained by public opinion on their  own   side  to   approach   the   smaller  country   with   suggestions,   if not   re  quests, regarding the nature  of tariff  restrictions on trade, shows  that once  for   all   the   future   independence  of  Canada is, so far as the United Stati s  is  concerned, frankly  recognized, and  that all idea of absorption, annexation,  or any other form   of  union   between  the two  has   been  frankly  and com-  pletely abandoned.    This  is   an enormous  gain,   because  it   will   free  all  future negotiations from the obsessing  prejudice   that    has   kept   American  statesmen from doing Canada any kind  of justice.    If coercion is  to be the  opposite of useless, then the disposition  of American statesmen may be to recognize Canada as an equal  and treat  her as a neighbor instead of a mere  colony.  YBLIiOWHEAD  i   x:      ooAl fields  Edmonton*-- March, 29/���Half a  dozen / young /���men, ex-army officers  from France, it is said, are entitled to  the credit-of first unearthing the vast  coal beds near the Yellowhead on the  Grand Trunk Pacific. This coal is  equal in point of quality to the coal of  Crow's Nest, of Vancouver' Island, of  Sydney, Nova Scotia, and the bituminous coal of Pennsylvania. The great  field is at the headwaters of the Mc-  Leod, Pembina and Embarras  Rivers,  *.. .. ,      .���, ..    INot only is  the quality of this coal  over >St5o,ooo  being-��� placed   on   the/ '    . "-       '  good,   but it  is  theie  in   abundance.  estimates'fof this district. This compares'with'about $15,000 secured the  year before by the  previous < member.,  ��� .The appropriations will be well dis'  tributed over the constifliency: $20,-  000 is the initial amount' towards! the  bm!dingrof a court house" at" Grand  'Fork's,' Phoenix will receive $1000 in  'lieu''of'the*mineral tax and-at'least  $6,W6 foir'a new school; while $30,-  500 "will oe> expended on the improvement' 'of'fdVds' through out the constitu  en'cy and '$$od ori a bridge near the  5 smelter.' The supplemenfaties also in-  clu'He^oo'o'ibr'the'district.  Touching on' the necessity of con-  tractVng'a road 'to'Central camp'��� from  PhoeTmi, Mr. Miller regretted 'the mat  ter h'ad''n6t been brought to his notice  before" the' passing" of the estimates.  It is his intention, However? to go over  the proposed route with Superintendent  Spragg&t next: week'W estimate on the  probable Cost'ahd ft"is altogether likely  a means for its early construction will  * Be provided.''" *  * .Mr.r'Miller has.made a^decidedly  , conspicious showing for a new memoer  and with more experience will become  a force among the lawmakers and of  .increased usefulness to his constituency.  There will be no tariff war at present  between Canada and the United Slates.  1 As the result of a series of conferences  between  representatives   of  the  two  countries, respectively, the  maximum  scale of duties under the Payne-Aldrich  tariff law will not be imposed on Can  ada, and Canada will have no reason  to   talk  about   retaliatory   measures,  The imposition of the maximum duties  have been made preventible by certain  tariff* reductions on the Canadian side.  These reductions will be made general  * not special to the United States alone,  and they may be  reasonably defended  on the'giound  that  they will  tend to  cheapen articles of food which we import at present under a higher rate of  duly.    Among   these are cottonseed  oil, prunes, and perhaps  Italian  corn,  the last named  being  largely used  in  fattening    Canadian    cattle.     There  would have been no tariff war even if  the United States maximum rates had  been imposed, for two reasons:    Canada would act unwisely to harden permanently the hostility of some of her  neighbors, and if she did want to "get J  back" at the United State?, the  most!  effective way to do it would be, not'  Experts estimate that  there are eight  hundred   million   tons   in   sight,   the  principal vein, as tested and   analyzed,  is 28 feet thick,-with two or three other  veins or stratas below and underlying  the main vein.    If the builders of the  Grand Trunk Pacific could   have  ordered the .placing of these  coal  deposits,  they, would install   probability  have placed them just where they  are,  near the summit of  the Rockies and  on the eastern slope.    From the mines  it will be generally down hill to Winnipeg and all the prairie cities,  although  as a matter of fact there are no  hill  grades on the National Transcontinental line.    In.the year  1908 a million  tons of Pennsylvania  coal  went into  the Canadian   West.    With  the com  pletion of the Grand Trunk Pacific, the  west will not only have an abundance  of coal, Dut  have a quantity  of coal  that can be stored in the early summer  before the crop begins to move.    Also,  jtjtvill^supply the much-desired   return  load for the cars that will cany wheat  from the prairie provinces  to   Prince  Rupert. _  The line will be completed and in  operation to the Pass by the end of the  year, and as a spur line of only twenty  miles will take them to the mines, the  west should be getting this coal in a  year from now.  This discovery is important to the  whole country. It will enable manu  facturers to establish in the west, and  will help in the economical operation  of the railways,  THE CANADIAN  PACIFIC RAILWAY  However much we admire the  <ihil-  ity and genius of the  buildt-rs  of  the  Canadian Northern, it must not be for-  notten that the* Canadian Pacific stands  alone and  stipn me among   the   transposition  s\stems of the  woild,  says  the Boston News BuitMii.    As a great  and efficient agent of commerce,   Can  adian    Pfcific    has   neither   peer   nor  rivil on this nor  any other  continent.  It spans the continent from   ocean   to  octan and   in handling traffic   between  Europe and the cilies  of  the   Orieni  and a'l the cities of Canada or those  in the Stales  bordering on  the  Great  Lakts it can  outdistance all competitors     It owns us own  fleets of steamships on the Great Lakes,  on  the Atlantic and on  the Pacific.    In  every  harbor of the Mediterranean and of the  Orient the flag of the Canadian Pacific  is  more familiar than  the Stars  and  Stripes.    The efficiency and   economy  of its  land  and   water  transportation  system is the envy and  admiration of  all others.    Il has in operation 10,000  miles of its own railways  m   Canada  and it owns control of  5000  miles of  railway in the United States.    It owns  $250,000,000   worth   of   farm   lands,  forests,   mines,   smelters,   hotels  and  real    estate   in   the   Dominion.    Its  whole outstanding capital   obligations  of bonds, stocks  and   debentures  do  not   exceed   $360,000,000,   and    its  equities in other railwiys, its vast  untaxed area of virgin wheat  lands and  <ts chain ol hotels, its millions of acres  of forest lands and coal lands  and   its  preat ocean fleets are certainly   worth  in excess of $360,000,000.  The assets of Canadian Pacific may  easily be*^ reckoned as greater than  those of Standard Oil or greater than  those of any other corporation, and  they have been been accumulated and  preserved by the genius and ability of  a most capable and upright business  management.  ' The Dominion of Canada  bestowrd  great land grants and cash subsidies on  the   Canadian   Pacific.    These   were  conserved and utilized with  marvelous  economy, and the result is that Canada  rejoices in the best, the most economical, and the most efficient  transportation either in the old or the new world.  Indeed, it may be truly said that the  Canadian Pacific is the type or   model  for the best and most efficient and most  economical collection and distribution  agency that can be planned for the benefit of mankind. And yet its rates, its run-  fning   time,   its   capitalization   and   its  operations are all subject to the supervision and direction and control  of a  board of railway commissioners.     And  with that board  the Canadian   Pacific  Railway works in perfect harmony.  The management of the Canadian  Pacific has been wise enough to see  that they were not only trustees for the  stockholders, but trustees for the up  building and development of the Dominion. They saw that the interests  of all the people of Canada were iden  tical with CP.R's interests and that the  greatness and prosperity of the Dominion meant the greatness and prosperity of Canadian Pacific. And Canada is only in the dawn of great and  wonderful pi ogress and prosperity.  She possesses the greatest undeveloped  resources of any empire or continent  and at the close of this eventful cen  tury the Dominion will be an empire  of 100,000,000 of people nchet, moie  prosperous and more contented than  those of any other nation save perhaps  those of the American Republic.  PRINCETON TO  OTTER FLAT  A good start on consliuction' work  has been made on the righti-en-mile  section ot lailway from Princeton west  to Otter Flat near the eastern slope of  the Hope mountains. The sections  east and west of the mountains will be  built by J. W. Stewart & Co.  West of Princeton the sub contracts  have been awarded to James Welnh,- J.  McPhee, Fn.d Wilson and Madden  & Ilankison. No less than nine construction camps have bei.11 established.  J. Wilson is driving a lo-jofoct lunnnl  near Tr nee on. and the equipment  comprises two donkey engines and a  steam shovel. The eighteen mile section, it is expected, will he completed  before next Christmas. Tlie work for  most of the distance is quite heavy  The snow in the vicinity of Princeton  has disappeared and summer weather  prevails.  A V.V. &E. survey party in charge  of Mr. C. F. Russell is now engaged in  locating a line for railway between  Penticton, at the foot of Okanagan  Lake, to Oroville, Wash., a point on  the V.V. & E. railway on the international boundary line. It is not generally known that the Great Northern  is now engaged in building a line from  Oroville to Wetfatchee, the centre of  the fruit-growing district on the Columbia liver and a station on the main  line of the" Hill road. The route is  down the fertile Okanagan valley.  Silericei  The instinct of modesty natural to every woman is often a  great hindrance!to the cure ot womanly diseases.

Park Channing, in an interview  given out in Douglas Ariz., said.:  "Without some arrangement-for. fix  ing a fair price for copper, we may see  the price go again to 25 cents a pound/  Should it do so< the industry would  be injured rather than benefited, as it  was by the abnormal price of three  years ago. Copper producers would  be well satisfied if they could get 15  or 16 cents a pound  for their output'  "I can not see anything iijv. the  visible output of copper at the present  time to indicate that production exceeds the demand for the metal, and  for that reason I expect to see higher  onces, thouyh it is not likely that the  increase will be material in the im  mediate future."  Ex-Senator VV. A. Clark of Vluntana.  in ar. interview given .out in New York  at about (he same time said that he  expected to see copper at 15 cents at  an early date as the foreign demand  was absorbing the visible supply at a  rapid rate.
