DAINTY AND DELICIOUS  The golden color of Curlew  Butter, its delicious creamy  taste, its exquisite flavor is  due to the fact that it is produced from the very best and  purest cream. Try a pound  only 35 cents   . The property destroyed in the fire in  Grand Forks business centre last!'week  totals about $300,000: The city however, is reviving wonderfully. Nearly  all the business places burned..out,- including the two bank?, have found new  quarters and re-opened.  The following reference, to the fire  is taken from the Grand Forks Gazette:  The fire broke out in the old Union  hotel on Riverside avenue,. in which  was stored old mattresses and such  articles. Such inflammable material,  placed as it was in the midst of a number of old buildings, soon gave:the fire  such hold that it was well beyond control before Constable Dinsmore,.-who  first saw it and turned, in the alarm,  could get the first stream to play,;oa it.  To-make :matters still more difficult for  Chief Savage, the fuses:blew out three  timesatthe sub-station and for a space  or about twenty minutes no-pumping  could be done, the fire boys having to  cut off their lines of hose in order to  retain any ptessure in those they' left;'  When all was working well there was,  with the assistance of the fire engine, a  pressure of 140 lbs and. nine streams;  playing. '_  , ? .(     ���'   t  As to the "Yale" seven���streains.were  brought to bear. On.il ��� at.the ..outset,  but the windows being open and the  lace curtains taking fire the "whole in-^  terior was soon abla���e: | The>tra"yellers  managed to get out .wrth^theirSgrips,  but the boarders were lucky who got  away . with more than their night  clothes. On three different occassions  'the "White House"- aiid ��� the Black  Hawk livery stable, across the river  'from the Yale, caught fire and were  saved by means of the Granby hose  which was sent down   by the smelter  Boundary Mining Notes  Morrin, Thompson &  Grocers and Hardware MercKants.  'places would also have been gutted for  fit was quite impossible for the city fire  team to get near the bridge.. We may  here'state that but through the) assistance rendered by the Granby, the  bridge connecting the two portions of  the city would have been destroyed,!  and for the same reason that the fire  boys could not get near enough to  throw, water on it when it ignited.  One fatility only has been reported.  N. Harnaby, of Mayo, Wash., a traveller who had brought in a carload of  wood, aridwas returning next day, was  staying at the Vahalla hotel, and.failed  to get out. Another person who was  staying in a cabin at the back of the  Yale' has3 K^  generally; thought that he has escaped.  ���v <i.

On Thursday the deal w.is put through with W  R Williams whereby the rompany ar-  quiied the Golden Eagle fraction.  The Golden Eagle is about a half  claim and adjoins the Granby property, also adjoining the S'emwmder  and Mouleiuma. at the northern part  of the camp. No development work  has been done on the claim, but it is  (onsidered to be a valuable acquisition  to the Gianby properties. The C.P.R.  ��pur from ihe Kiooklyn mine runs  ihrou��h the fucuon.  The consideration is not, given out;  by the company, but it is understood  to be in the neighborhood of $12,000.  The Golden Eagle has been held by  Judge Willums since 1896.  PRESENTATION TO  RETIRING MANAGER  W. C.  Thomas  Recipient of  Diamond Pin  A Swindler Cnajht  A despatch from Grand Forks says:  A clever swindler has been brought to  justice., -,,3'he,man is W.'S Carter,who  for a wbileresrded in this city.' For  some.time pa.ft.Gir.ter has been work-,  ing his game, in the States, but the  officers of the postal department getting  on to someone using the mails for  fraululent purposes, he thought it best  to come over to this side of the line.  It appears that Carter would come into  a town, and getting acquainted with  some young man'who had parents'who  were well to do. in the east, would  write to them telling them that their  son was sick and in need of money to  defray medical expenses. His last  victim was a. iady of Cherryvale, Kan.,  whom, it is stated, he had done out of  a considerable sum of money. Mc-  Keenan has been at work on the case  for some time and by means of decoy  letters Carter was lured over to Dan  ville, Wash.,'a few miles south of this  city, where lie was promptly- collared  by depot)' United States marshall  Uray, who was assisted by postoffice  inspector Wilmer, on the charge ol  using the United States mails to defraud.    Carter had nothing to say.  Latest Prices to Meinls  Nkw York-���Copp'ir. <''ectr->lvti(!, *12-  50 <g $12 75,   lime. *12 75 ^$12.87.  Bar Silver, 53},f  Lead, *4 40 @ $4.45.

An interesting event took place at  the Dominion Copper company's smelter on Thursday afternoon of last  week, when over sixty of the employees of the company gathered on  the feed floor and made W.C. Thomas  the retiring manager, the recipient  of a beautiful diamond stick pin, as  an expression of their respect and  kindly feeling toward him. They als^.  availed themselves of the opportunity  of presenting his estimable wife with a  handsome silver pudding dish. Mr.  Thomas has been a most popular  official; his kindly, generous disposition  won the hearts of not __jp.ly _h'S .office  assistants but the entire executive staff  of the company, who regret his departure. B.M. Renaud, one of Mr.Thomas'  ���aWo.st assistants, .was chosen to make  the presentation, wlu'cn itieiua-a'"'����.'_  following address:  Mr. W. C. - Thomas,   "Dear Sir,���We, the employees of  .the;Dominion Copper -Cor/at Boundary Falls,(who', have [worked������_���;'_nder  yoiir leadership for the past two years,  and since you have decided to leave  us, it is our sincere desire to prove to  you, in a suitable manner, our regret  at parting with you; and to prove to  you how deep in sympathy and high  esteem you are held in our hearts, for  the sympathetic manner you have al  ways been ready to lend an ear to our.  grievances, personal or common, and  it has never proven too great a task for  your ability to solve the problem for the  good of all and satisfactorily to all parties concerned. But, as circumstances  have'made it impossible by the long  shut down, to "be as -liberal as we  would like to be in offering you something that will speak for itself in expression of uur sentiments, we there:  fore, resolve to present   you this   scarf  pin. *  ' "We hope that it will be accepted in  the same spirit in which it is given,  riot for..its intrinsic value, out as a token of the esteem in which . you are  held in ourhearts, arid it will serve as  a momento, in future days, when we  are all scattered in this broad land,  that still there remains a soft spot in  the hearts of the Boundary Falls boys  and deep feeling for the welfare and  prosperity of our friend and leader,  Mr. W. C. Thomas, when Manager of  the Dominion Copper Co. Good  wishes to you and your loved ones."  Mr. and Mrs. Thomas left on Saturday, and after a visit, to coast cities  will reside at Salt Lake City, where  Mr; Thomas returns to the position he  formerly held with the Newhouse Company before being sent to the Boundary in charge of the Dominion Copper  company. He will have a commission  doing special smelter work on the New  house properties, with headquarters at  Salt Lake.   Alineral Records  -The mining records for the past  week.show that S locations have been  registered and 35 certificates of work  recorded at Grand Forks.

The colonel is  an advocate of the great healthful values in fresh air and exercise and finds  first quanity of both in a stroll up to  Phoenix. No newspaperman in Canada today has a more interesting jour-  alistic career than the editor' of the  Ledge. He has already owned and  edited 22 newspapers at different times  in various towns and is now seriously  contemplating the starting of his 23rd.

'  The  ' (Being the fifth Installment of aome obnerva-  tlons made by the lormer editor of'the'Pioneer,  while enjoying a vacation *) ' -   -,.  In the minds of most residents of  .British Columbia, when Vancouver  is. mentioned, thoughts at once revert  to the Queen City of the province, and  few ever think of the progressive town  of Vancouver, Washington, located on  the Columbia river, but six miles -by  trolley from Portland, Oregon. But  Vancouver, Wash., is a decidedly im'  portant place, and has, recently, been  made'more so. by the partial completion' of Uncle -Jim "Hill's- water-  grade railway, locally known as the  North Bank road, arid officially as the  Spokane, Portland and Seattle railway  ���itself one of the marvels of railway  "construction, for the amount expended  therein, mile for mile'.    r  ��.����� '  Ol course Vancouver, Wash.,1' to  some extent, plays second fiddle to its  overshadowing ^neighbor, .Portland, but  being in ia-'different'" state Ogives' it a  standing and individuality' of, its own.

We traveled over the completed portion,:as fat as. Pasco. - The  distance is 221 mile's,'aiid it cost an  average'of $i 80,000'per mile, or about1  $40,000,000. .' In British Columbia  $50,000 to $75,000 per mile is con-i  sidered high cost in railway construction. But James J. Hill built the  North Bank' road to do away with'  hauling heavy freight trains f over the  Cascade mountains, and while it cost a  kine's ransom, he has succeeded, with'  a grade of less than seven-tenths of one  'per' cent, and hiving one of the > finest  roadbeds on 'the continent.-" Money  was poured into the road unstintedly.  The purest brands of commercial copper are the various electrolytic and  Lake Superior. Electrolytic copper of  99-97% purity is occasionally jQi or  ��2 ($5 or $10 per ton cheaper than  best selected ingot of only 99 6% purity,  owing to manipulation of the markets  in London and New York.  The "best selected" brands of copper  are rarely made now according to the  method described in textbooks, so crude  bar coppers made by the Bessemer  process are often free from any large  quantity of arsenic and antimony.  Lastly, ihere are the tough coppers,  which are generally arsenical, and are  used for the,bulk of manufactured  copptr articles,' such as tubes, rods,  sheets, etc.   -  It is usually safest to use the purest  copper for all brass alloys, for rolling,  and for tube drawing, Arsenic must  not be present in quantity over 0.05%,  antimony over 0.01%, or bismuth the  method depends upon thebrown coloration produced by dissolving bismuth  iodide in potassium iodide.  t Billet for, copper tubes, rods, and  plates are now usually cast direct from  the refinery; .the copper is generally  made to contain about 0,5% arsenic,  which neutralizes the ill eflecls of small  quantities of bismuth and lead,"and  also gives the copper a higher tensile  strength at temperatures of 200 deg-?.  ,C,' which is important for some engineering work. Any other kind of  tough copper practically con tains oxygen  as the neutrailxing agent, as well as  a  small quantity of arsenic.    The oxygen  is r resent as cuprous oxide,   which   is  alloyed with   the  copper.    Some  still  make tubes by the old crucible   meth  od, and very good results have been obtained in practice with this class of copper; it can only be made from the purest  brands of best selected and electrolytic  metal.    The oxygen  is   removed   by  adding  about; 0.1%   of   phosphorus.  The greatest care is necessary in the  heat treatment of the different kinds of  copper used for tube making,   etc.    A  reducing atmosphere may spoil the copper.    The roller will blame the refiner  or caster, and. they  generally put  the  blame on the raw material.    Il is best  to have a nei tral  atmosphere  in   the  furnace, but a 1 exidizmg is better than  a reducing ore.    At a   red   heat the  copper oxide can   be  easily   reduced,  and this upsets the equilibrium of the  metal.    It is (he business of a chemist  to know the proper heat for treating  the various kinds of copper.  Arsenical copper should never be  heat above 750 degs. C. in any part  of the rolling (process, whilea ordinary  refined oxidized copper with o 1 to o 2%  oxygen can be heated to 900 degs.

Tlie Bluebell, Kaslo, is turning out  silver-lead ore at the rale of five cars a  week, all concentrates.  A prospecting boom has struck  Moyie. During the past week several  claims were located along the Moyie  lakes.  The Silver King mine, Nelson, has  under contemplation the installation of  a system of electric power for the better operation of the property.  An important strike has been made  on the Vancouver mine nearSilverton.  A lead 25 feet wide, with a narrow  paying streak running through was uncovered.  The Chicago Mining World says:  "The first'electrol>tic lead refinery to  be put in practical operation on this  continent was the Belts, installed at  Trail, B. C.  During the drive on the No. 6 tun  nel on the .vein in the Hewitt mine,  while still on virgin ground a shoot of  ore was come upon. This shows thatt  the vein is of permanence and that 1  is mineralized to a greater extent than  could be told from the workings on the  five tunnels above. The depth of the  No. 6 below the,outcrop is 8-ofeet.  "The Selkirk Mining Company," is  (he new name under which the French  company, owning the Cork mine, mill,  and some neighboring claims, will  hereafter*: operate,"' says ' the "Kaslo  Kootenaian<v,,The Cork- mine" has  some exceedingly large ore bodies," but  the complex nature of the ore makes  the problem of working profitable by  present methods a difficult one.  What is declared to be the richest  bar of copper matte ever shipped from  British Columbia was sent out from  the Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Company's smelter at Trail to the Ta-  coma refinery, recently. The shipment  was worth a little more than $32,000  and the matte contained 41 per cent,  copper, 35 ounces of silver, and 45  ounces of gold to the ton. The company is shipping 15 cars of matte a  month.  Owing to low prevailing metal prices,  the Rambles is shipping only such ore  as is required to pay expenses of operation. According to the annual report,  just issued, it was at one time a question whether operations should be maintained until such time as the situation  improved. At the recent meeting of  the directors it was decided to follow  the policy in force for seme time past  and keep on with development shipping  ore enough to pay expenses.  A. E. Scott, who owns the C.P.R.  mineral claim at the south end of McKinley mountain; about four miles from  the McKinley mine, had a remarkably  fine assay from his property recently.  Mr. Scott has not been doing much  more than his assessment work each  year, but at the conclus'on of each  year's work, would have an assay made  of the shaft which he is sinking. At  first he had but a trace of gold, but  each year's work has given higher results until this year, when from a depth  of twenty feet, his sample assayed 18.-  40 oz. in gold, valued at $380.36, or a  total value including, gold, silver and  copper' of $395.81.

The provincial executive sent a telegram to the Great Northern Railway  protesting against its thieatened action  of discontinuing the train service between Kaslo and Sandon. The telegram will be followed up by more vig!  orous action, as the government intends to use the means in its power to  prevent such a plan being consummated.  A new twin screw steamer, the  Princess Charlotte, has been launched  by the C.P.R.  Lord Alymer, late inspector-general  of the militia, has bought ten acres of  land on Kcbtenay lake and in a few  weeks will move there with his family,  including three sons, now. members of  the civil service.

There is a great deal of dissatisfaction in Bella Coola over land leased to  the pulp company, many hundreds of  acres being tied up in this lease for  whirh the government received two  cents per acre according to the. lease.  Jack Moe, who has been district  passenger agent for the C.P.R., with  headquarters at Nelson has been-promoted to the position of city agent  at Vancouver.
