Number' 23  GRANBY CONSOLIDATED  AGAIN ON SHIPPING LIST  ���kMpt  Morrin, Thompson & Co.  J  First Consignment of about 800 Tons Shipped to Smelter���75 Men  on the Payroll���Labor-Saving Device for Handling Coal.  The Gr.tnby company once more entered the I'st of producing mines  this week, when   the first  consignment  of ore   was despatched to their  Grand Forks smelter, an Wednesday.    The  company have made every  effort to commence work  before the Christmas holidnys, encouraged no  doubt by the recent substantial   rise in  the price   of copper.    As  stated  inst week by O.   B. Smith,   general   supt., the   company tire increasing  their working force as quickly as the situation warrants,lf;md how have  about  75 men on the   payroll.    With  the  settlement of tlie  coal crisis  came the announcement  of J. P. Graves, general   manager of the com-  pany. that it was their intention to mine ore on as liirge a scale as possi-  ble, in order, it was said, to provide the funds for the extensive development which is  being steadily prosecuted on the new Hidden Creek pro-  pcrty at Goose   Day, and  which bids  fair to materially hasten- the time  when that mine will   be found occupying   a prominent "place among the  dividend payers of the'province.    The7 policy outlined   by'Mr. Grnves is  to be carried  out, and the  continlious'operation of^tbe big mine here is  apparently  assured for a long  time to come.    Ai*iHu-^lfhrtinj^' the wide  awake attention paid by the company to the discovery Of devices for the  saving of labor, the recent installation of a   method of handling coal  for  the mine boilers is .-��� fair sample of their watchfulness.   A chute has been  constructed .near   the No. I tunnel   connecting with 'a 'pdeket in No. 3,  and by this contrivance the  coal can   he emptied *" from either the Great  Northern or C.P.R. cars into the pocket   and conveyed  withlittle handling to the boiler house. *  It will be remembered that the company ceased'shipping about'May  22, but a business-like effort was made to resume in the* 'middle of June,  by using the imported Pennsylvania coke, but owing tothe long haul  and increased price the experiment was abandoned and the mines'indefinitely closed on August 12.  O. B. Smith, gen. supt. of ths Granby company, left town on Thursday, to join his family in Vancouver. Immediately after the Xmas holi-  da> s he leaves on one of his visits of inspection of* the Hidden Creek  mine at Goose Bav. <  St. John's Church Xmas Tree  The Anglican  church   Christmas  feast and tree distribution took place  on Wednesday, the 20th inst.   There  wits   a   fairly   large  attendance   of  children   and   their   parents.    The  j children assembled   in the  bnnquet  room   of the   Miners'   Union   hall,  where an excellent spread of refreshments dear to children's tastes was  partaken of.     An  hour of fun  and  games then followed, interrupted by  the arrival of their old friend Santa  Claus.    The genial old   fellow was  The City Council  accorded a reception befitting a  king, and after acknowledging the  greeting, proceeded at once to strip  the Christmas tree and distribute  the presents. By the kind permission of the Daughters of Rehckah,  who vacated their lodgcroom much  earlier than usual, and the Miners'  Union, the fine lodgcroom was invaded and an enjoyable little d.mce  terminated the Christmas festivities  for 1911. ��� Professor Werner provided the music.

The ore now  being   taken out   is  from  the upper  workings, and   is   being   hauled   to  Sproules, at which point it is transferred to K. and S. cars.

So far  as yet shown, it appears to be a  separate and distinct ore body, and  bids fair to add materially to the  quantity of ore in sight. The lower  workings of the Nickle' Plate, with  the latest finds in that part ofthe  mine are also doing their share to  make conditions particularly rosy.

The edifice was beautifully  decorated for the occasion, the pro  gram of music, both vocal and instrumental, being much appreciated  by the large number present. The  arrival of the eagerly awaited Santa  Claus created no little excitement  among the youngsters, the scene  that followed being animated in the  extreme.

Special attention had been  given to the music, Werner's orchestra being in attendance throughout the evening, immeasurably adding to the pleasantness of the  function. J^ E. Thompson filled the  most important position of toast-  master with a tact and'abilityithat  very few could excel, and after a  few introductory remarks he called  on Judge Hood to respond to the  toast of our King, which the "genial  judge did to the King's taste, reviewing briefly'the lives of the Empire's pnst mOnarchs as far back as  George 111.  The services-of R. McCammon  were then requisitioned, the fine old  song "Nelson" being rendered in  splendid style. Mrs. Chas. Knight  ably assisting in the accompaniment.  The toast "Canada" was handled  by Dr. W. 11. Dickson with consummate skill, his knowledge of  past and present Canadian history  proving an entertaining and agreeable surprise for the company. A  capital duet by Mr. and Mrs. Chas.  Knight was the next item, receiving  the merited applause of the guests.  N. VV. Sweetser proposed the toast  ofthe President ofthe United States,  and explained among other things  that President Taft was not only  liberal and broad in his views, but  that he even carried it so far that he  always hired two seats at a baseball  match, to which Judge Williams remarked that he always practiced the  same manoeuvre, the only difference  between him and the President  being that lie reserved a seat at  each end of an eight foot table, in  order, lie explained, to rest his feet  on one of them. R. McCammon  and Chas. Knight then contributed  a duet "Excelsior," both of them  being in excellent voice. 1*'. S.  Norcross, Jun., was the next orator  "Our Industries" being the theme  ot his remarks.    A humorous song  playing contributing greatly   tothe  enjoyment of the evening.  Judge Williams then rose to  great heights to reply to the toast  of " Ourselves," and as usual was  the cause of considerable merriment,  his sallies of humor convulsing the  assemblage. He was, however,  handicapped by a severe cold and  hoarseness. The old Irish ballad,  "Father O'Flyn," sung by R.  McCammon, was the last vocal  selection on the program, being  sang in rollicking style. The frustrated arrest of one of the guests by  the'ehief of police, proved the sensation of the evening, but owing to  the intervention of a number of his  lady friends, who vouched for his  future conduct, he was permitted to  remain and join iu the singing ot  ���'Auld Lang Syne," which terminated one of the most successful of  Phoenix's social events.  The following' is a copy oi the  excellent menu provided by Jas.  Marshall, proprietor ofthe 1-irooklyn  hotel, for the Granny dinner on  Tuesday evening.  MKNT.  IfliV  VICTIM  I'OrKTltl.

Valuable jevvelery of every  description, together with a dress  suit, was taken, and what makes  the matter more mysterious is the  fact that the crime was committed  by a cripple, inasmuch as- the print  of crutch ends alternated with those  of a foot in the mud at the back ot  the building. ,  The trappers along the shores of  Cowichan lake, nnd at the head  waters of the Cowichan river are  not meeting with their usual success  this year, as the mink and marten  which are most numerous- at this  time, are scarce.

The Dominion government is arranging to provide a more efficient  life-saying service for the west-  coast of Vancouver Island. When  the government steamer Nevvington,  novv' on a cruise to overhaul, the  buoys and beacons in Johnston  straits, returns to Victoria, wireless  apparatus will he placed on the  vessel, and the steamer placed in  the life-saving service to act as  parent vessel for the lifeboats. During the winter she will cruise from  Victoria to Estevan, and upon a  vessel .being reported in distress.-.  she will proceed immediately to the  scdric, taking the nearest lifeboat to  the rescue.  .Railroad construction will be  rushed on the Grand Trunk Pacific  Railroad's Pacific division next year.  Messrs. Foley, Welch and Stewart,  who have the contract for the construction in British Columbia, have  been asked to complete the roadbed  between Tetc Jaune Cache and  Aldermere, a distance of 415 miles,  i  with the least possible delay. Mr.  P. Welch, .it is understood, is on his  way to Edmonton and Winnipeg  where he will award sub-contracts  for the eastern half of the work.  The sub-contracts for the western  portion, will probably be awarded to  contractors who are'now engaged  on the line east of Hazelton.  Some sensation has been caused  among the Chinese residents of  Victoria, by a notice recently placed  in the window of a prominent store.

The  firm state that some Chinamen have  been giving trouble by pushing in  among the white customers on  Saturday evenings, eyeing the white  women offensively and stealing  when they got a chance. Reputable Chinamen protest: that this is  not sufficient reason for putting up  such a public notice, but the firm  say they are unable to distinguish  the sheep from the goats among  the Chinese and are therefore compelled to exclude them all.'

SEASICKNESS.  It la Not Bensficial, and In Rars Cases  It Causes Death.  In the light of modern intelligence  the once popular idea that seasickness  was of real benefit to the sufferer and  that It never terminated fatally has  been exploded. Not only Is this malady to bo guarded against by every,  means possible, but It Is even to be  dreaded by those who are not over  robust as leading to possible fatal results. '���:'".'.-.'���������  The old fashioned notion that a t-ood  dose of seasickness was beneficial was  due wholly to the fact that upon recovery the victim of mal de mer Is  usually 8o��deligbted that he Is apt to  Imagine, that he never felt better in  his life, while feeling normal again is  merely so great a contrast to,tbe exceedingly wretched condition which  this dlsordea brings about that exaggeration of one's feelings is the  most natural thing In the .world.

There is  as  great  a  difference  b<>-  tween the systems of issuing and redeeming tbe notes of tbe Bnuk of Eng-  j land and of the banks of tho United  Stutes as there is In the appearance  of the notes themselves. '  The English note Is somewhat longer  and much broader than ours, la of  rough white paper, with ragged edges,  and is printed on one side only, with n  fow words and with no pictures or  designs.'while ours are completely covered on both sides with vignette and  lathe work.  Our notes are Issued again nnd again  until they become so worn tbnt they  are no longer serviceable. A Bank of  England' note is never issued more  than once. Every note that comes In  Is canceled at once, nnd then It is  stored away with other canceled note*  to be preserved for a certain period,  when it is destroyed by burning.  It takes many clerks to keep the  record of notes issued and paid, and  so accurately la this work dom; that'  the date when any note wns issued,  tho "person receiving It, tbe lime when  it was paid into tbe bank and by:  whom, can be ascertained from the  books. If the time was within five  years the note itself can be produced.  Many are the stories of attempts to  counterfeit these notes, which have always been failures. As tbe average  time between the issue and the payment of the notes Is only tlve or six  days the fact that a counterfeit Is In  circulation Is known almost at once,  pnd tbe system of English bankers and  merchants of keeping the numbers of  tbe notes received and paid gives the  clow whereby the offender Is quickly  apprehended.���Exchange.

No one in England seems to have manifested any  anxiety  except the   Queen Mother,  C.P.R. to Use Crude Oil  ft was stated  on  good  authority  here    today,    that    the    Canadian  Pacific railway   has   decided   lo use  crude oil for fuel lor its locomotives  on a portion of its Brilish Columbia  division.    This rumor has been' current  for  six   months,  Sir   William  White, ex-vice-president of the Canadian Pacific railway, having made  a statement   last  summer  that the  matter vvas receiving consideration  at head quarters.     It is   also  said  that in this connection circular tanks  of riveted   steej boiler plate witli a  capacity/of 200,000 gallons  will be  built on the Shuswap and mcvintnin  subdivisions of the   first   district of  the B. Ci Division at Field, Golden,  Roger's Pass, Revelstoke, Sicamotis  Junction, Notch Hill ancl Kamloops.  ,It is also stated that the only change  necessary in the locomotives will be  the insertion  of jet burners in the  fire   boxes.    The   tenders   wilk be  changed to hold oil instead of coal,  POINTED PARAGRAPHS  Louis Fori at-, vice-president of  lhe Federal Council of Switzerland,  has been elected president of the  Swiss republic.  Lord Strathcona, in a recent interview, stated that a service of 25  knot steamers between Liverpool  and Montreal, would be established  in the near future.  M8OTM  It vvas  announced last week at  Edmonton, that the government  would proceed with the construction  of two railroads from Edmonton to  the Mackenzie River, through the  Peace River country. One will extend from Athahasca Landing to  Peace River Crossing, and the other  from Edmonton to Fort Mc Murray.  Messrs. Mackcnie,*"Mann & Co. will  be the builders* and operators.

The princesses  appear    to   have    been   the   most  hardly dealt with, escaping in their  night  attire,   possibly other   men's  wives  and daughters  were   in   the  same   plight,   but  if so, the  despatches were silent  on the subject.  We readjalso that "the princesses  had   to-   be   literally   dropped   and  caught,','   but   by  what means  the  other  women    and   children   were  saved appears to   have escaped the  chronicler's   attention.     We    read  further that provision was made for  the royal party on the cruiser.     We  hope that  due  deference  was(paid  the unexpected visitors by the crew,  and the royal salute rendered.    The  captain no doubt vacated his sumptuous   'apartments     and   probably  slept in the sail locker, but whether  Joe tbe  cook  and   Bill   the bo'sun,  gallantly gave up their accommodation   for  the  other passengers, we  are left in doubt.    We would suggest  that    the   loyal    scribe   >vho  penned  the. account of this  "royal  shipwreck"   hang a  portrait of our  gracious   Queen   Mary, in his   bedroom, write "oro pro nobis" under  it, and turn to  it when devotionally  inclined, or  another royal write-up  is required for Canada.   The Pioneer  yields to  none in  its loyalty to the  throne, but if such   despatches  are  intended   to   keep   alive   the   loyal  spirit in the Dominion, they lament-  ibly fail   of  their  purpose, and we  must not blame the  subjects of so-  called democratic countries if they  brand us as an empire of snobs and  toadies.  the purchase price has been paid  down to Chief joe Quavvand and his  200 Indians.

Much as we   may deplore its attendant evils, the  boom  appears to be  necessary  to   the successful establishment of any mining camp.    This  applies more, of course, to the mining bf the  precious metals.    Iron,  coal and the   like,  can be exploited  without a rise of public temperature.  The Rossland boom, the  Lake of  the   Woods   fiasco,    and,    in  later  years, . the  Larder  Lake and other  excitements,   illustrated   very  completely the disastrous consequences  of inadequate publicity ancl the lack  of   clean   professional talent.     To  these elements   must   he added tlie  presence of unscrupulous -vendors,  visionary promoters, and a quite.unsophisticated public.  Times and manners have changed.  It is not easy to "do" the Canadian  people today. Responsible publicists having nt heart their duty  towards the nation, will not permit  themselves to be used by the fakir.  Every flotation must meet fair  criticism. The subsidized press carries less and less weight.  Yet the fact remains that the  normally constituted human- being  wishes to be in the fashion. If one  camp or district happens to hold  public interest, the investor is more  easily persuaded to take a chance.-  Canadian Mining Journal.  CUtCKLY   STOPS  COUGHS.  CURC3   COLDS.

The girl is seventeen  years of ��ge.  The removal of the capital of  India from Calcutta to Delhi will  probably cost the British government $25,000,000. ,As a part of  the coronation festivities, the king  has given $1,600,000 to be devoted  to Indian.education.  British railroad directors and railroad workmen's unions have reached  a peaceful settlement, which it is  expected will prove permanent. The  companies granted a few minor concessions, but refused complete recognition of the unions.  Tlie government of the province  of Manitoba has doubled Ihe rates  all over that province's telephone  system. When the system . was  taken over three years ago the rates  were cut in two, the loss' being  in the  neighborhood of $170,000.  An injunction has been granted to  the Wright Co. to restrain Claude  Grahamc-White, the English aviator, from flying in the United  States without permission of the  Wrights. Grahame-VVhitc says he  will return to England and devote  hianself to the manufacture of aeroplanes.  A Washington special to the New  York Times states that it is becoming increasingly clearer to republican leaders that they must choose  between ex-President Roosevelt and  the renqmination of President Taft.  The La Fellettc boom has distinctly  collapsed, his name being scarcely  mentioned now.  Wu Ting-Fang is personally telegraphing to financiers in America  and Great Britain warning them  that it is not wise to assist the  Imperialsts at this time, especially  as Yuan Shihkai's assertion that  money is only to be used to maintain tranquility in Pekin is a ruse to  procure war funds.  After boiling their water for the  last four weeks, the people of  Seattle are now able to dispense  with that formality. When recent  floods broke the city pipe line, the  water from Lake Washington was  turned into the city mains, and as a  result the people were requested to  boil their water as a preventative  against typhoid.
