JH0rrm��wtnpso^^m  Wednesday the city was startled by  rumors of a terrible catastrophe in San  Francisco, which were more than confirmed when daily papers from the  outside arrived giving particulars of the  awful calamity, by which thousands of  lives were lost and millions upon millions of properly were destroyed by  earthquake, followed by lire of far  reaching proportions. The awfulness  ofthe cahmity almost beggared description, it being difficult to realize  that a city ol 400,000 people, ibe tenth  in size in the United States, bad been  practically annihilated.  Wednesday morning at 5:12 o'clock  the earthquake was first felt in the  California city, when ' great buildings  and structures of all kinds toppled and  began tumbling into tbe street, breaking off water, electric and gas connections; of all kinds, and precipitating a  conflagration of gigantic proportions,  which is yet raging and burning all  over the doomed city. Firemen were  practically helpless without water, and  dynamite was resorted to to stop the  march of the flaming monster, but all  without avail. The entire business  part of the city was in ruins and the  ruins were fiercely burning in every  direction.  Martial law was declared, and some  3,000 to 5,000 United States troops,  from near by army posts, were thrown  into the city to preserve order and prevent looting, etc. Wind fanned the  flames, and va��t buildings that had  wholly or partially escaped from destruction with the seismic disturbance,  melted away in front of the fiery monster.  The shock was felt and did great  damage at a number of places many  miles north and south of San Francisco,  while but little damage was done at  Oakland, only a few miles across the  bay. Great damage was done at Sal-  mas, Napa, Santa Rosa and San Jose,  with hundreds of lives blotted out in  those and other places by the earthquake or incinerated in the ruins by  the flames that immediately followed.  Leland Stanford university is in ruins.  Boundary People There.  Many persons in Phoenix and other]  Boundary towns have lived in San  Francisco, and were greatly excited  over the news of tbe cataclysm that  had befallen the unfortunate city, being thoroughly familiar with it. Inquiries to the Pioneer for details came  in all day Wednesday and Thursday.  A few days previously W. H Itter,  of Grand Forks, had gone to California, where be was married to Miss  Marsden, and they were reported as  spending the honeymoon at Santa  Rosa, which was practically wiped oft  the map on Wednesday.  W. I). Lawson, ledgerkeeper in the  Eastern Townships Bank here, has a  sister, Mrs. Manning, whose husband  conducted one of tbe largest hotels in  Santa Rosa. Nothing has been heard  as to their safety.  Henty S. Turner, formerly connected with newspapers in Grand Forks,  Cascade and Phoenix, has been in the  printing business in San Fransisco, and  is probably among tbe sufferers if he  and his family escaped with their lives.  George L. Klkins, of Phoenix, has  three cousins 111 business in San  Fran-  MARDE TVMES BAWL   WAS A HUMMER.  Maey    Here   From  Out    of   Towa���Llit ol  Prizes and Winners.  Monday evening's dance or harde  tymes bawl by the base ball club, was  certainly a howling success, if judged  from the standpoint of outlandish costumes, numbers attending and financial results generally. The spirit of  tbe evening was carried out to the  letter, and some of the wearables on  that occasion were certain fearfully and  wonderfully gotten up. Any one attending with a while collar, for instance,  soon found it wise to change.  Music was furnished by Biner and  James, and was all that could be desired, as usual, and there was no small  attendance from outside towns, especially Greenwood. E. P. Shea, manager  of the base ball club, who was described on the bills as a peddler of hot air  and jobber, was there with the goods,  and made every one feel at home. The  pri/.is were as follows, with the winners:  Best waltz couple, Mrs. O. N.Galer,  and Capt. George Smith���prize, clay  pipe and package Peerless tobacco.  Best representation of female charter, Miss Leita Wallace���prize, 8 lbs.  mush.  Best representation of male character, Percy Wilkinson, sack of spuds.  Every winner of a prize was required  to open and display the prize received,  which created no little merriment. The  club netted about $75 from the dance.  Splendid Base Ball Game.  The first base ball game of the  season played by the Phoenix club,  took place Sunday afternoon at Greenwood with the club from that place.  About 100 people went down from here,  every available team in thecitybeing engaged and many taking   shanks  mare.  The game itself was a good one, and  the opinion is prevalent that Phoenix  has today the strongest team ever put  in the field. The game was won by  Greenwood by a score of 4 to 2, Phoenix losing by two errors.  B. C. COPPER  WILL CLOSE  West Kootenay Co. Securing  Right of  Way  To Deadwood and Boundary  Falls.  Smelting  Works  May  Early    in  To Permit   of   the   Extensive  Enlargements.  BOUGHT HARNESS AND WAUON.  Lily Pnthcrs Again  Adding to  ibe   Municipal  Equipment.  Wednesday there were present at  the meeting of the city council Mayor  Rumberger and Councilmen Kane,  Oxley and Brown, and the following  bills were ordered paid by tbe finance  committee:  J. K.   Rpn $    ;,  James Turner        y  W. R   Mathison        5  Dominion Copper Co       14  Noble Binns       10  M. Mclntyre      28  Yale-Columbia Lumber Co...   155  James Turner.       15  The council awarded a contract  S. McCague and J. Thompson  putting in the Twin ("reek flume,  tween Second and Church streets,  $io per thousand, under the direction  ofthe board of woiks. It was also  decided to open up Cimerou street,  from Dominion avenue north to the  alley, so as to give access to the alley  at the rear of the Hotel Alexandei,  where K. V. Chisholin is about to  make a large addition to his house.  Then the matter of harness and  wagon for the utilization of the city  team, bought some weeks ago, and  which has been hard at work eating  their heads off ever since, came up fot  discussion. It was finally decided to  purchase a suitable harness for $54.75,  00  00  00  00  00  75  34  7 5  to  for  beat  In the course of two or three weeks  ���-or some time early in May���the reduction works ofthe British Columbia  Copper Co., Ltd., at Greenwoed will  be blown out and closed, to permit of  the extensive enlargement of the  smelter to two or three times its present daily capacity. It is likely that the  close down will last two or three  months, as it is expected to take that  time at least to install the three giant  furnaces���-the largest in Canada���together with the extensive electrical  equipment that has been ordered and  is now being manufactured in the east  for this company. Tbe present capacity of this smelter is 600 to 700 tons  daily, with two ordinary blast furnaces.  When the new machinery is in working order, the capacity will be about  1,500 tons of ore daily.  While the smelter men will be laid  off for a time, the construction force  will be largely increased and the work  of installation be crowded as fast as it  can possibly be done.  At the company's Mother Lode  mine, while no ore shipments will be  made during the stoppage of smelting  operations at the smelter, the entire  force will be placed on development  work, getting the property in shape to  maintain the largely increased ore tonnage that will be demanded of it when  the new fuin.ices are ready for business.  House Cleaning Dance Netted $145.  Tlie bouse cleaning dance given by  Matron Howe and staff, assisted by  tbe Eagles, on April 4th, in addition  to being one of the most enjoyable  entertainments of the season, was a  financial success. It netted the hospital about $145. The sale of tickets  not all being reported, an exact statement cannot be made at this time.  The girl's hat, donated by Miss McDonald, and raffled off,brought $32.60.  In addition the Ladies' Aid added  $14 dues to the fund. The hospital  has been thoroughly renovated, calci  mined and painted inside, and the  operating room papered. It is cleaner,  brighter and prettier than ever before,  and patients will feel and appreciate it.  All who so kindly aided in bringing  about this much needed result have  the heartiest thanks from Miss Howe  and her patients.  Judge William B. Townsend, of  Rossland, who had charge lust year of  securing the right of way for the British Columbia Construction and Distributing Co., Ltd., a company formed  by the West Kootenay Power & Light  Co., when the high tension electric j  line was built through the mountains  from Rossland into the Boundary, was  in the city a couple of days this week,  closing up one or two right of way  matters.  The company is now proceeding  with the securing of the necessary  right of way, to supply power from the  new sub-station in Greenwood to the  Mother Ixide mine in Deadwood  camp, and also to the Dominion  smelter at Boundary Falls. This,  however, will probably not be an extensive matter, as much of the territory  traversed is crown or C.P.R. land.  The feed lines will be constructed  without unnecessary delay, the wires  being now strung to Greenwood  Active work is now under way on  the massive sub-stations at both Greenwood and Grand Forks, under J. IJ.  Henderson, the Phoenix station having been completed some months since  and being how ready for use. The  Greenwood station will distribute the  current, which comes from the hydro-  electrical works at Bonnington Falls on  Kootenay river at a tension of 60,000  volts, to the Deadwood camp mines,  the B. C. Copper smelter and the Dominion smelter.  This year there has so far been no  severe shortage of electric power, fortunately, in the Boundary, the Cascade  plant being operated to its fullest capacity and being able to meet the demand. But the increase of demand  very shortly, due to general and extensive enlargements at all three of the  smelters in the Boundary, will require  the use ol the Kootenay river power,  now practically ready for hitching up,  to assist in manufacturing copper in  the Boundary.  There is an impression abroad that  the West Kootenay company cannot  deliver power in the Boundary under  its present charter. That charter gives  it this privilege within 50 miles of  Rossland; and Grand Fores, Phoenix  and Greenwood are alleged to come  within that radius. It was in endeavoring to secure an extension of the charter, so that power might be sold all  over Vale county, that the West Kootenay Co. was opposed by the Cascade]  concern in the legislative assembly recently.  P. Burns & Co., Ltd., to Build.  After considering the matter for a  year or more, in its various aspects, P.  Burns & Co., Ltd., have at last definitely decided to build a central shop  in Phoenix. The matter was settled  Thursday evening by Blake Wilson,  the N'elson manager of the concern,  who made inspection of various sites.  It was concluded to take the Murray-  property, on the corner of Victoria  avenue and First street, just off the  bridge and adjoining the Cottage hotel.  As soon as the plans can be drawn  and contract let, work will be begun  on the erection of a commodious two-  story building, which will have every  accommodation for the business. One  of the new features will be a cold storage plant and ice making machine.  1 he present shop on Dominion avenue  will be continued, but that in the Bank  block will be closed when the new  store is completed.  Ore is being sent out regularly from  the Gold Drop mine nowadays.  Sinking in the main shaft of the  Mother Lode mine has reached the  400-foot level.  Diamond drilling is now going on  in the Primrose, one of the Mother  Lode group.  Fred Whitwell has started work on  another shaft on his Maori group in  Providence camp.  More than 400,000 tons of ore have  been treated in Boundary's three  smelters so far this year.  Coke from the International Coal &  Coke Co. is being used at the Dominion smelter at Boundary Falls.  Drifting continues on both levels of  the Helen mine, and ore shipments  are likely to starl this spring.  A new steam locomotive, for hauling  slag, was recently placed in commission  at the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter.  Frank Buckless has been hauling  ore from the Skylark mine again this  week, taking both a high and second  grade car to the station.  Yesterday the new. automatic ore  bin feeder, just installed at the Great  Northern terminal of the Granby  mines, was tried for the first time.  The Providence mine has its new  ore bins and C. P. R. spur completed, and the second class ore dump,  some 2,000 tons, will now be sent to  the smelter.  Col. T. L. Dickason, of Chicago,  one of the large owners of of the Cres-  ent Mines, Ltd., is expected in the  Boundary shortly, to see about starting  work on the property once morn.  This sveek's second class ore shipment from the Strathmore mine was  sent to the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter, and more ore shipments of both first  and second class ore are to be sent out.  MANY TIMES  A MILLIONAIRE  Arthur C. James Visits Granby Mines.  One of New  York Directors  of Co.  The old log cabin adjoining the  Summit hotel, a landmark here for  seven or eight years, was pulled down  this week, being in the path of progress.  Conrad Gustavson, a miner employed at the Gold Drop, had a leg broken  Wednesday while barring down ore.  He is getting along nicely at the hospital.  At the opening of Miners' Union  opera house, next month, the opening  sketch, "Who's Who," Miss Webster,  Miss LaBelleand Messrs. Gates, James  and Thornton will take part. Lewis  and James will also give "Donovan  and tbe Dago.''  Tuesday and Wednesday evenings  the MacKenzie-Glover Concert, Comedy and Dramatic Co. gave entertain-  tainments at old Miners' Union hall  Notwithstanding the short notice and  almost total lack of advertising, there  was a fair audience the first night that  seemed to enjoy the entertainment,  probably remembering the excellent  work done by the company here on a  previous visit.  The small compressor formerly in  use at the Mother Lode mine has been  set up at the Emma mine, Summit  camp. Heretofore the Emma has  been taking power from the Oro  Denoro.  It is reported in the Similkameen  that the British Columbia Copper Co.  has not yet decided to exercise its op  tion to purchase the well known Sunset group near Princeton, on which  they did considerable development last  year.  This month of April is expected to  be a comparatively small one in the  production of copper by the Granby  Co. Supt. Hodges will crowd enlargements to the smaller iurnaces, so that  hereafter, instead of handling from  70,000 to 75,000 tons of ore monthly,  he will have a capacity of at least  80,000 per month, and probably more  than that.  On Tuesday, May 8th, the annual  or ordinary meeting of the Denoro  Mines, Ltd., will be held at the company's offices in Rossland, to elect  officers, transact general business and  especially to consider the matter of an  option recently given on the Oro  Denoro mine by the company to the  British Columbia Copper Co. The  latter company is now prospecting the  claim with a diamond drill.  I-ast Sunday Arthur C. James, a  director of the Granby Consolidated,  was a v'sitor in Phoenix for the first  time, travelling in his own private Pullman, and being accompanied by Mrs.  James, children and governess, and  Mr. and Mrs. Ferry, relatives of his  wife. Supt. Hodges, Treasurer  Wooster and A. L. White, the latter of  Spokane, of the Granby Co., accompanied the party to Phoenix, where  two or three hours were spent in going  over and through the mines of the  company. That night the James party  returned to the Granby smelter, arriving in Spokane Monday morning early.  Before the party went into the  mines, C. M. Campbell, civil engineer  for the Granby, photographed them,  and when they came down to the  the office a little later, the photographs  had been developed and printed on  souvenir postal cards, ready for mailing.  Mr. James comes from a very  wealthy family, his father being one of  the large shareholders in the Hill railway lines. The family is also connected with Phelps, Dodge & Co., of New  York, one of the greatest copper concerns cf the continent. Phelps, Dodge  & Co. own numerous copper and  other mines in Arizona, New and  Old Mexico,one of which is the Copper Queen at Bisbee, Arizona, whence  the James party had just come. The  Copper Queen is certainly a great  mine, judged from any standpoint���  one of the leading copper producers in  America. Every 24 hours it ships  five carloads of blister copper to the  refinery. The company owns its own  railway, the El Paso and Southwestern,  some 300 miles in length, and the importance of the mines is shown by the  lact that there are 135 miles of underground workings in the properties, and  has 2,500 men employed.  The wealth of the James family may  easily be estimated above the hundred  million mark.  Coi  Last week's benefit, at Greenwood,  for W. A. Nicholson, who iost his  sight in the Providence mine some  weeks ago, netted about $1,000, and  he is to live hereafter at his old home  in Prince Edward Island.  pliatenUry Dance (o Mines Hodges.  Thursday evening a complimentary  dance was given to Misses Daisy and  Marion Hodges, daughters of Mr. and  Mrs. A. B. W. Hodges, by a number  of young men of Phoenix. Miners'  Union hall was engaged and about  25 couples enjoyed themselves till a  late hour, supper being served in the  banquet hall. Besides the guests of  honor. Mrs. Hodges, Mr. Hodges,  Mrs Smith, a sister of Mrs. Hodges,  and Mr. Crane, a brother of Mrs.  Hodges, came up for the occasion,  the music being furnished by Biner  and James. The Misses Hodges are  attending Brunot hall at Spokane, and  were spending Easter week with their  parents.  Latest Prices io Melalt.

Matters continue to be in a satisfactory condition generally with the mirv  ing and smelting industry of the  Boundary country. More men are  employed here than ever before in the  country's history, and the prices of the  metals are such as to be most encouraging to those who have made or are  making investments here. The large  companies are all working every man  possible, and the smaller companies,  working the high grade properties, are  doing likewise. In addition to this,  there are a number of new deals pending that may very largely increase the  payroll of the country,'especially that  of Phoenix. It is understood that the  Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines,  Ltd., the new title for the War Eagle  combination wish other properties, is  working out its organization in good  shape, and that the capital for the  active development of those properties  on an extensive scale will soon be  forthcoming. The Snowshoe is about  to resume operations and shipment:  and taking it all in all, the prospects  never had a better appearance.,  As for profits from mining in the  Boundary���the thing that investors  are keeping an eye on���thousands of  eyes are centred on the dividends of  the Granby Consolidated, which now  appear to be coming with pleasing  regularity, at about 12 per cent per  annum. The greatest low grade proposition of the entire Boundary has  made good in liberal shape, and one  result will be that capital will be apt  to take hold of other low grade mines  in this section���of which there are  dozens and dozens. Who knows but  that there may be several as great as  the Granby in due course of time?  COSTSDOWN  TO 634c. LB  Copper  Details  Produced    By  Granby Co.  The  Given    By  Authority.  Boston  of  silver and  Postmaster-General Ay!esworth,after  hearing the report of the special committee sent to the United Stales to investigate the cost of the rural free  delivery service in that country, has  decided not to introduce anything of  the kind in the Dominion. It was  found that in the United States the  rural free delivery is conducted at an  enormous deficit or loss, which is  steadily growing���and the mere men  tion of it scared the Ottawa officials so  that they would not think of trying it  even to a limited extent.  There is a vast difference between  the plan on which the postal service is  conducted in Uncle Sam's land and  that on which Hon. Mr. Aylesworth  does the business. In the United  States the first thought is to give the  people the best possible service, even  though it does cost something more  than the revenue received, for the  people pay for it anyway. Heie, the  plan is to show a goodly surplus, at  any cost, and never mind if the service is poor or even miserable in many  places. Incidentally, in passing, we  might remark that if every newspaper  in Canada would issue a holiday edition like that of the Pioneer last year,  and be charged the same extortionate  rates for the posting the same, it would  soon pay for rural delivery, even in the  far away Yukon.  ��M  Plans are now being formulated by  the members of the Western Canada  Press Association���-most of whom reside in Manitoba and the Northwest���  for their annual excursion to some part  of the Dominion, and they are seriously ' thinking of coming to British  Columbia this year, going through the  Koutenays and Boundary and on to  the coast, and stepping long enough in  each place to make it worth while. If  tf the C.P.R. will grant the association  a reasonable rate, they will take this  trip some time early in August.  Mff  A visit of an organization of this  kind is not alone a pleasure to the  members, but is of material benefit to  the country they visit for various reasons. One direct benefit is the fact  that after the trip the 120 members of  the association will write it up, in illustrated form, for their respective papers,  where the story will be seen and read  by many thousands of people. In addition to this, the matter is published  in booklet form for wide distribution  ���for the .press boys know the power  of printers' ink, and are only too  pleased to use that power.  J. A. Osborne, of  the   Ft.  Francis,  Ont.,  Times,   is   the chairman of the  excursion committee this   year, and is  already taking the matter up,   prepara  few  such���should ' tory to arranging the itinerary for the  If one who did' excursionists.

Mr. Wm. Thos. Lanorgan, provincial constable at Chapleau, Ontario,  says: "I caught a severe cold while  hunting a burglar in the forest swamp  last fall. Hearing of Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy, I tried it, and after  using two small bottles, I was com  pletely cured." This remedy is intended especially for coughs and colds.  It will loosen and relieve a severe cold  in less time than by any other treatment and is a favorite wherever its  superior excellence has become known.  For sale by all druggists.  B. C MINING  Once again some "leading citizens"  have lynched supposedly guilty negroes  fpr outrages, and this time it occurred  -in Missouri, where the people have to  be shown, according to tradition.  Undoubtedly the negro problem is  most perplexing, and we, so far away  from it, can hardly* appreciate it. A  dose of- British justice might help  things, however.  Following the news of the LeRoi  dividends a short time ago, came that  of the Granby dividend, and then that  of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada, (War Eagle, Center  Star, St. Eugene, etc.) The Canadian  Goldfields Syndicate has also done  likewise, it is pleasant to note. The  tide is turning effectually, and this sort  of thing will occur frequently from now  on.  It has been remarked that there are  few sensations so pleasant as that of  receiving dividends regularly, but there  are several mining companies in this  province now that treat their shareholders to just such agreeable sensations. Over 1900 of these shareholders  ���in the Granby Consolidated���will  experience these sensations on May  15th, to the tune of 30 cents per share,  with every probability of its being repeated about every so often.  Speaking of the efficacy of advertising, here is a case decidedly in point.  A fine fur boa was lost in Miners'  Union hall, and a notice to that effect  recently inserted in the Pioneer. The  loser did not know the boa was missing  till she saw the ad in the Pioneer, but  seeing which led to its recovery.  The unbeliever in advertising���and  even in this enlightened day and generation there are a  put it in this  way:  Owing to the low grade of ore treated by the Granby Co., the question of  copper costs is of considerable importance, says the Boston News ljureau.  Probably no smelting plant on the  American continent is operated, with  an eye to saving every possible cent,  as economically as is the Granby  smelter.  In the treat mi nt of ;S,ooo tons of  ore per month, which the Granby Co.  is now averaging, it is obtaining an  output of about 1,750,000 pounds of  copper, 30,000 ounces  5300 ounces of iiold.  In a recent month, its total costs of  copper per pound, crediting gold and  silver values against the cost of the  copper, amounted to .0634 uii a production of 1,766,640 pounds. Its  mining costs, including mine development, amounted to .0376; freight,  .01 oS; smelting and converting. .0664;  genera! expenses, .007.*: total, ,i;:o.  The cost of foreign ore (35S6 tons)  added .oioS, making total costs.i3>S.  Deducting gold and silver values of  .0694 left a net cost at ihe smelter in  British Columbia of .0634.  The cost, landed in New York, was  .0S34 and.the profit for the month  was.0971, or nearly 10 cei.ts per  pound.  It is safe to say that the Granby Co.  is now netting a profit of 10 cenis per  pound on its copper output, and th--;re  are but few mines in the United Slates  which are making a better showing of  profits.  This is all the mote noteworthy considering the fact that the Granby Co.  is making this sh-iw'ing with a recovery  of but 22^2 pounds of copper to '.he  ion of rock treated. The secrecy of  low cost is in the fact that Grauby  ores are laresjely ��*��� It-fluxing.  Grip Quickly Knocked Oat.  "Some weeks ago during the severe  winter weather both my wife and myself contracted severe colds which  speedily developed into the worst kind  of la grippe with all its miserable symptoms," says Mr. J. S Egleston of  Maple Landing, Iowa. "Knees and  joints aching, muscles sore, head  stopped up, eyes and nose running,  with alterate spells of chills and fever.  We began using Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, aiding the same with a double  dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and  Liver Tablets, and by its liberal use  soon completely knocked out the grip."

Topping, the father of Trail,  has returned to the Telkwa valley to  develop his big copper ledges, recently  discovered.  W. A. Galliher, M.P., of Nelson,  has formed a syndicate to prospect in  Cobalt, and is taking some B.C. prospectors over there.  The Eureka copper mine, near Nelson, will install a $20,000 tramway,  cutting transportation costs down from  $4 to 50 cents per ton.  Prospectors, when in the hills this  summer, should not overlook radium.  This week the price took a jump from  $1,460,000 an ounce to $9,410,342.16.  Remarkable discovery of silver is  reported on Observatory Inlet, on the  northwestern coast of British Columbia, tests recently made showing results of 1,200 ounces to the ton  From f,ooo to 1,200 tons of coal  are being mined daily by the International Coal & Coke Co., at Coleman,  in the Crow's Nest. President Flum-  erfelt expects to secure an additional  market in Spokane this year when the  new C.P.R. railway connection to that  city is completed. The Canadian  Northern takes 200 tons daily and the  C.P.R. 600 tons per day, besides the  coke that is being manufactured there.  The Canadian Goldfields Syndicate,  Limited, has declared a dividend of  1 y^ per cent on its $600,000 of the  issued capital stock of the company.  The dividend is for the quarter ending  March 31, is payable May i, amounts  to $10,500 and the total of its dividends to date is $93,000. The com  pany is the owner of 4260 shares of  the Consolidated Mining & Smelting  Company of Canada, Limited, which  at the present valuation of the shares  is equal to about $600,000.  PROVINCIAL.

To come back to the squalid details  of political partyism as practised nowadays in the domain of federal affairs,  and, we are afraid, not entirely confined to Liberal circles. Syllogistically  speaking the senatorial situalion was as  follows : A senatorship is for the man  who seives his party: Mr, Riley served his party by resigning his seat in  parliament for Mr. Templeman; therefore Mr. Riley is entitled to the senatorship. It is simple; it is convinc-  ing.if you have mastered the proposition  that the country is an oyster for the  politicians to swallow. We do not  blame Mr. Riley; he is merely the  shuttlecock which the party players  have tossed from a seat in one chamber  to that in another. Mr. Riley is not  without a streak of Irish humor in his  composition and when he surveys his  comfortable quarters for life doubtless  wonders how the deuce he got there!  ���Vancouver News-Advertiser.  banking business entrusted to our keeping  receives the most careful attention.

HOBAICE J. STEVENS, 36 Po.t Office Block. Houf-hton   Mich.. U.  There can be no question hut that  the man who has done more than any  other for the development of the Boundary is Jay P. Graves, vice-president  and geneutl manager of the Granby  Consolidated Mining, Smelting and  Power Co., Ltd., having a capital of  $15,000,000 and with mines at Phoenix and smelter at Grand Forks, B. C  It was a most fortunate thing for (he  Boundary that .Mr. Graves lost his fortune in the cash in Spokane in iht  early nineties, for then he turned his  attention to mining, with the greatest  success ol any man, probably, who  evei operated in British Columbia.  Mr. Graves was born in Hancock  county, Illinois, in 1S59. being brought  up on a farm, and attending the  Carthage College, a Lutheran school  at Carthage, III He came to Spo  kane, Washington, in 1887, when but  29 years of age, bringing with him a  few thousand dollars lhat he took out  of his hardware business at Plymouth,  III. The boom was then beginning in  Spokane, and with his partner, Charles  V. Clough, Mr. Graves made money  fast in the real estate business. The  panic that swept over the country in  1893-4-5, however, left Mr. Graves  with only his home and some $200,-  000 of debts.  Mining was then being  taken some  interest in with Spokane men, and Mr.  Graves became interested in the K.nob  Hill and Old Ironsides  mines  in this  camp   in   1S96,  being associated with  H. V. Palmerston and Henry L.White  in the early days of those now  famous  enterprises.    The story of Mr. Graves'  connection with the mines of Phoenix  reads  like  a  story  book.    Every old  timer in the Boundary  will  remember  that  when  other  mines in British Co  lumbia were stopping operations at the  time  copper fell   so   heavily in price,  Mr. Graves never lost confidence that  he had one of greatest copper mines in  the world, and so kept  steadily at the  work of development and exploitation,  finally   establishing  his own  and   the  reputation   of  the   Boundary   in   the  mining world,  and   biinging the properties   to   the steady dividend paying  stage���a stage that many   of bis best  friends thought would never be reached here, on account of the low value*  in the ores.      But   Mr.  Graves never  wavered   from  the start, and his judgment has been most amply vindicated.  The   four   original   companies,   the  Old Ironsides,   ilia   Knob   Hill, Grey  Kagle and Granbv smelter,   were consolidated in to the present company in  1900, and since the  consolidation the  policy ot the company has been one of  constant expansion  and  development,  until now copper is probably produced  cheaper by the   Granby   Consolidated  than at any other point on the American continent, which is one   secret  of  the   undoubted   success of   the company,      The Grauby smelter was started in 1 (joo with two furnaces, capacity  700 tons daily, and has-been ;ulded to  until it now  has  eight  furnaces, capacity 2,700 tons  daily,  and  this is still  being   increased,   and the company is  credited with netting around $200,000  per month.  In addition to his extensive mining  interests In the Boundary and elsewhere, Mr. Graves has become a financial tower in his home city of Spokane,  where he has entered the street railway field, in opposition to one of the  strongest combinations in the entire  west, and is making as great a success  there as he did in mining and smelting. To him is due largely the development of the growing system of inter-  urban trolley lines radiating from  Spokane, which are doing wonders in  building up the rich agricultural territory surrounding that city. Me is  president ofthe Spokane Traction Co.,  president of the Spokane and Inland  Railway Co., president of the Spokane  Terminal Co., has a large interes t in  the Spokane and Coeur d'Alene Railway Co., and is now organizing the  Inland Empire Railway Co., to take  in and consolidate the several traction  concerns.  Perhaps in no way has Mr. Graves  shown his ability more than in the  selection of those with whom he has  been associated. He interested S. H.  C. Miner, of Granby, Quebec, and  associates, in his Boundary mining  enterprises, and when they wished to  dispose of their holdings, he associated  with him many of the leading copper  capitalists of New York and   Boston,  some of whom are also interested in  his traction enterprises. It may be  said, also that, in nearly every case,  those who disposed of their holdings  did so at a handsome profit.  In financial circles in the east Mr.  Graves has become a well known  figure, being a friend of James J. Hill  and others of his associates in New  Vork and Boston. At present one of  the enterprises being worked out is the  developing of the magnificent water  power at Kettle Fulls on the Columbia  river, said to be the third power of its  kind in size in the United States, now  controlled by Mr. Graves. What this  means to the development of the  country, when brought to its fruition  by Mr. Graves, may be surmised.  Mr. Graves might almost be called  an exponent of the simple life in actual  practice. He lives with his wife at his  home, a two story, red brick residence  at 2123 First Avenue, Spokane, where  he has nearly half a block of land. He  is a lover ol fine live stock, and he  makes frequent trips to his beautiful  country home, seven miles north of  Spokane on the Little Spokane river,  called Waikiki farm, where he has 200  acres of land, and where he raises  fancy blooded cattle and does some  dairying.  Mr. and Mrs. Graves have one son,  Clyde, who was. recently married and  is now on an European trip. He has  three brothers, Carrol 15. Graves being  attorney for the Northern Pacific at  Seattle, and Frank H. and Will G.  Graves being law partners in Spokane.  Aubrey L. White, of Spokane, has  been associated with Mr. Graves in all  his mining, smelting and electric enterprises.  JUDGE OF T'HE SUPREME  Was Alarmingly Afflicted  With  La Grippe.  Cured  by Pe-ru-na.

According to Mr. Alfred Allayne  Jones, president of the Alberta Agen  cies, Ltd., the new Canadian Pacific  Railway Atlantic steamships, the Empress of Britain and the Empress of  Ireland, are two of the very finest  things afloat. Mr. Jones, who has  spent the last two months in Europe,  passed through Montreal en route  west last night, having arrived from  Liverpool at Halifax, on the 3rd inst.,  by the steamship Tunisian, after a  somewhat rough passage, says the  Montreal Herald.  "Before sailing," said Mr. Jones to  the Herald, "I took the opportunity of  going to Glasgow and having a good  inspection of the Empresses. Both  are well on the way to completion, although the Empress of Britain is much  more advanced than the Empress of  Ireland, as she is expected to sail for  Quebec on or about May the first.  "The Britain rides the water like a  duck, and, in its interior finish, can  compare with anything afloat, or that  sails from any port on th>s side of the  Atlantic.  "She has three series of staterooms,  and the third class accommodations  are equal to almost any of the second  class in the best ocean boats, in fact,  in respect to the baths, closets, etc ,  she is in a class by herself. This  struck me as being the feature of the  vessel.  "Carrying 1,700 passengers, she is  569 feet long, 65 feet 6 inches wide,  and 70 feet from keel to boat deck.  Stand on St James street and look at  any of the high buildings���that will  give you an idea of her height 1,500  men are busy at work, and will have  her ready by May, easily.
