Grand Forks was yesterday visited by the biggest conflagration in; the history of that city and the main business section was entirely wiped out. The  big Yale hotel, the pride of the smelter city, and the two main business blocks  i-icluding the Eastern Townships arid British American banks, customs office,  co-operative stores, telephone and telegraph offices and all the society lodge-  rooms, are in ruins. '��������� ..*  The fire originated in the Yale hotel about 1:40 yesterday morning and  quickly spread, leaping across both streets and eating its way [through the two  principal blocks. By daybreak the business center of the city was a mass of  flames. .    ;     "     ,- .'..'" <"���������'������  The buildings consumed were:. Square hotel, Province hotel, Downey's  cigar store, Eastern Townships bariK, British American ..Trust bank, B. C.  telephone offices, Woodland's drug store, C. P. R. express office, Victoria hotel,  the three barber shops, second-hand store, C. P. R. -commercial telegraph  office, Windsor Hotel, Valhalla ;tiotel, customs/.office,; co-operative stores,  AVhite's jewelry store; and all the fraternal;society,Todgeroqms. The Royal  *t>ank, icity h"iUi~;postgffice,,and, prartfiy^hotellarethe .orily: buildings in the-'  vicinity which have escaped the destructive flames.  It is difficult as yet to estimate the extent of damage done, but. $300,000  is thought to be a close estimate. Further details of the fire are not available  at time of going to press. The fire, however, was under control at noon  yesterday.  The charred remains of Nelson Burnaby, of Malo, Wash., who was sleeping in the Valhalla hotel, have been taken from the ruins, and another man is  missing.  Yesterday was pay-day at the Granby smelter and the Royal bank, being  unprepared, had difficulty in cash'ng the big pay-roll.  I  Boundary Mining Notes  Tunnelling on the Lucky Shot is now  well under the surface;  Monday is pay-day at the Dominion  Copper company's office.  The smelter, ct Boundary Falls treated 650 tons of ore on Monday.  P. Boyles, who is in charge of diamond drilling on Granby hill, expects  to put a second drill   to work   shortly.  Mother Lode made a record tonnage  in shipments this week, 8,944 tons  bsing sent to  the Greenwood smelter.  Work is being done at the Joe Joe,  in Wellington camp to keep it fr:m  filling with water from a near-by  stream'.  The B. C. smelter treated 13,052  tons of ore this week���9,479 from  Mother Lode, 3,416 from Oro Denoro,  and 157 other properties.  The wires being down on account  of the fire at Grand Forks yesterday  the Pioneer was unable to get the treatment at the Granby smelter before  going the press.  Boundary Falls smelter this week  treated 3,879 tons of ore from the  Dominion Copper company's mines, as  follows: Brooklyn, ti6o tons; Rawhide,  2,075; Mountain Rose, 62; Sunset,  582.  Twelve students in civil engineering  arrived in camp from the east this  week and will assist O. E. LeRoy in  surveying Phoenix camp. They are  now working at the Gold Drop and  Snowshoe.  T. Roderick returned this week from  Ollala, in the Similkameen, where he  has been doing assessment work on  the Jam. Considerable assessment  work is being done on claims in that  vicinity, but the Bullion, with seven  men at work, is the only claim where  active development is being carried on.  Miners at work on the Woodburn  mineral claims struck a good showing  in an open cut of some 42 feet. The  Pioneer is informed that all the one  hundred thousand shares of capital  stock of the recently incorporated  Phoenix Mining, Smelting and De-'  velopment company, have been sold,  a large amount having been taken up  this week.  RICH STRIKE  AT BROOKLYN  Fine Body of Copper-  Gold Ore Located.  Dominion Copper Co. Official  Pleased With Operations.  ( During the process of drifting and  crosscutting at the Brooklyn this week  a ledge of excellent showing ore was  located. The value of the assays have  not been given .out, but is is understood  the extent and values of the ore body  makes it one of the richest finds that  have yet been made on the company's  properties.  H. H. Melville, vice-president, and  M. M. Johnston, consulting eimineer,  of the Dominion Copper c impany,  came in from Spokane on Thursday  evening and spent vesn:rd-iy in camp,  taking a drive to Mounuin Rose mine  in the morning with Superintendent  Rundberg.  Mr. Melville expressed himself as  greatly pleased with the results at the  smelter and mines since the company  resumed. "The big furnace at the  smelter is now treating from 600 to  650 tons daily and is running smoothly," he said, "I only wish we had another like it. The mines are not shipping very heavily but are being got in  shape for big tonnages when the two  smaller furnaces at tne smelter are  equipped with electric feed."  Speaking of the aerial tram line from  the Idaho to the Stem winder, Mr.  Melville stated the plans would no  doubt be carried out and the installing  commence in a few weeks. "It will  mean a big saving in the cost per ton,  and that is what is required in mining  ore of low grade."  ��� The Mayflower, Rossland, has another carload of high grade ore about  ready for shipment to the Trail smelter.  The Mayflower seems to have the  richest ore of any of the south belt  properties.  ODD FELLOWS AND  REBEKAHS INSTALL  Officers for Current Term--.

Closely, related  to this question, and almost equal in  importance, is .the much ..vexed one of  varieties, and on this matter a very  strong interest was shown."  "I may say in the most emphatic  way that my recent trip confirmed the  belief that I had held for some time  past, viz., that British Columbia is  destinied to be one' of the, most im.  portant fruit "countries on the continent. The satisfactory thing about  it all is that the vast majority of the  growers are going at things in a thoroughly businesss-like way, and are  eager to adopt the best methods along  the various lines of their work.. In re-,  gard to the methods of cultivation I  cannot speak too highly. With hardly  any exceptions the orchards are clean,  thrifty, and excellently planned."  CONSULTING  METALLURGIST  Pays a Short Visit to  Phoenix.  Former Smelter Trust Man on  Holiday Trip.  Auuusi R.thi, of N -w York, formerly  consulting met.il!iiri>-st for the American Smelting and Kcfming Company,  was a visitor in town yesterday, leaving  on the afternoon imiu for Trail.  Mr. Raht was f.hown around the  Granby mines by Superintendent  Smith yesterdav morning but did not  go under ground.  Interviewed at the train before leaving Mr. Raht said he was simply on a  holiday: trip and expected to do more  fishing than inspecting mines. "I have  no opinion to offer in connection with  what I have seen here," he said.  ''One cannot... express an intelligent  opinion after having seen only, the surface of a mine. T took a. trip in an  ore tram but did not go underground.  I came to the Boundary principally to  see the Granby smelter, where they  treat ore consideiably different to which  we do. I am just off on a summer  outing; I am my own boss now."  The latter statement refers to the  (act that about two months ago Mr.  Raht, who has been with the A. S. &  R. for many years, resigned his position. When asked concerning the rumors that the Guggenh'eims had been  ousted from the control of the smelting trust, Mr . Raht said.  " That cannot be determined at all  till after the annual meeting in.Septem-  ber. It is generally believed about  New York that they have. lost control  and that Rockefeller now holds their  place in the trust, but Simon Guggenheim recently stated' that'this; was not  the case." ���  'Mr. Raht declined'to predict for the  future .of metals anything d ;finate, de-  claring,that he knew no more about it  thari-ariyohe-~elseV^butf-^^  opinion,' nevertheless, that. copper  could not be much higher for * many  months.    :       '.',, ,,,'....��� .... ���.-...���. -.'...���  Taylor Succumbs to Meolnjltls  Frank Taylor, who had his right  arm torn off in an accident at Mother  Lode compressor three weeks ago,  died at the sisters' hospital Greenwood,  last Sunday morning.

Located just i oo miles  from Portland, and inside the bar at  the mouth of the Columbia river, As-  J toria certainly has a magnificent location,'as John Jacob Astor, the famous  New York trader, must have thought,  when, after months of a sailing trip  around Cape Horn, his vessel weighini.'  anchor in the bay of the present cit\  in i8ro. '  While no positive proof of an   improved copper  demand is   adducible  there is nevertheless a generally   well-  established  belief that all   things  are  working towards   that end.    The past  nine months have been trying ones  to  producers, nor indeed, have they been  less testing upon consumers.    That an  all-round improvement is in sight,   if  not immediately at hand, is well voiced  by D. IIouston& Co, of New York,  in their copper cir* ular letter for June.  After reciting that the volume of trade  remains still far from normal, they say,  with   reference   to   the  copper   meial  market:    "Demand is still  below normal dimensions   for   various   reasons,  but when the country gets  to the end  of the long  lane  of depression  there  will be numerous new requirements to  fill and this will inevitably supply the  essential   factor   requisite   to   create  stronger market  conditions. . Production can usually go ahead with almost  clock-like regularity, but consumption  is more  or less  subject  to  constant  variation.    If the industrial consumption of copper does not keep pace with  production the surplus stocks resulting  from a  shrinkage in  demand   play  a  most important  part   in   keeping the  market on a low   plant." The  kernel  of truth in this presentation of the case,  is that abnormally low price will cease  when the wave  of expansion   sets  in  among the different  copper-using  industries.

A tremendous expansion in the use of the metal  is bound to follow the economical and  conservative policy  now practiced at  the various   sjmelting   establishments.  Present prices of copper are at such a  low level and stocks in manufacturers'  hands have been so much reduced that  th_- resumption of a brisk industrial demand ought to be hastened   by sheer  necessity.    Compared with prices of a  year ago current quotations reveal  opportunities to:carry on  manufacturing  operation on 1 early  one-half  th.- cap  ital outlay formerly required as  far  as  copper is concerned.    If some work  able  method could   be instituted   in  order to tegul .te output to demand   it  might prevent abnormal fluctuations in  price and the :onsequent trade demor-  alizatation suci as recently   witnessed.  The conservation of valuable ore deposits in'the copper mines of the country is a subject! of such vital importance  as to merit thjj immediate attention to  those interested.    The practice of goug  ing out the vital  of a  mine  for  the  purpose of gluting the market with an  over-suply rannot be considered a wise  business    policy.    On   the   basis   0/  present domestic consumption and calculating a.  steady export demand  of  4o",ooo,coo pounds a month, it  seems  apparent thar 800,000,000  pounds of  made in the electrical  industry, and a {copper from American mine* and refin  ' "r~ As an instalme*nt"df'-returning pibs-  ,-peiity comes the  resumption,, of coft-  ' struction work by the Harrirrian lines  and the re-engagement of thousands of. . v      - rtr_..u...6  ,.,,,  men by the Illinois   Central   railway, j money to keep the bar   at th  Today Astoria   has railway  connections with   the' outside   world   by   a  branch'of Uncle Jim   Hill's ' Northern  Pacific, and the branch does  a profitable business-i-otherwise it  would not  be Uncle Jim's. ' But   the  place  has  also the best of   water  transp6rtation  on the bosom of the mighty Columbia  river, which is here  seven miles wide  though still ten miles from   the Pacific  ocean.    The entire trade of  the colossal and fast-awakening Orient is at the  very doors of Astoria,', with the -cheapest of water-grade transportation known  to man; and the business  interests of  the place, after years and years'of'somnolency, are gradually* realiz'ng ��their  heritage in thrs%irectJon. 'i    '{ 1 -  ���OS' �����    ,  The United States government  has  spent' and   impending  ^millions   in.  mouth  vigorous growth in electrical* develop  ment, especially in this country, may  be expected when the financing of important projects is completed. The  progressive tendency of the. age will  again- manifest .itself with renewed  energy, and dormant enterprises will  resume activity as soon as confidence  and general conditions indicate that  the time of recovery has arrived. The  conclusions reached are of a cheering  character, while not omitting to direct  attention to things that might be done  to prevent/in large measure, a recurrence of such  deplorably  violent de  eries including imports treated here,  could be absorbed annually. This  quantity at 15 cents per pound would  return as much as 1,000,000,000  pounds at 1 3 cents per pound, and the  difference ������ould'remain in the mines  as an asset worth $30,000,0-:o per  annum with copper at '15 cents per  pound. With overproduction two evils  result; a waste of resources on the one  hand, and market depression on the  other."  Caudiaa Yacht WI01  The Canadian Yacht Alexandra last  "���iturd.iy brought back to the Dominion the blue ribbon of the Pacific  coast yachting world, by again defeating the Spirit of Seattle over, a i2-mile  course at English bay. The race was  one of the prettiest ever sailed in Vancouver waters, and was extremely close  throughout, the winner having a margin of only two minutes. The weather  favored the Seattle yacht but on the  first leg of the course the Alexandra  led by four minutes. The Spirit reduced this on the second rui to one  minute, but the "Alexandra gained an  other on the home run. Owinn to  each yacht having previously won one  race, the final created  much   interest.

The issues of the Blue Bird, at  Rossland, are confining their attention at present to extracting the oxidised soft ore that lies close to the surface.  Ore shipments over the K. & S. are  getting heavy, the tn-weekly train be  ing a long one. The bulk of the ore  is zinc concentrates . and comes from  the Whitewater.  The Hewitt Mining Company has  been organized and certificate of incorporation granted. The head office  of the concern will be situated in Wilmington, Deleware and the local office  at Nelson. The company will oper  ate the Hewitt and other properties  near Si 1 vert on.  The Sunset Mineral Claim, located  near Rossland has been sold by O. .1.  Ingalls and associates to Wm. H.

It  is thought the Sunset has the making  of a mine.  The big mill at the Blue Bell is  making concentrates at the rate of  about a barge load a week. The loading is done economically, cars being  run out and dumped right on the  barges and but little shoveling being  required. No zinc is saved as yet but  the addition of a magnetic plant along  the lines of the one owned by the  the Kootenay Ore Co., will alter this.

Only a forecast of the line up  is as  yet procurable.    The Eagles   have secured   Tuck   Collins to ; deliver   the  slants and Gene Shea will wear the big  mit.    This battery is said to have been  practising on Spion  Kpp every   morning this week and the 'stalwart youth  can show the originators  pointers on  delivering  the spit   balC _ McClung,  the big southpaw from Greenwood, has  beeri working hard for  the job  on the  rubber, but; will probably   hold  down  the first sack.   McAstocker, is wanted  for second base.    He has been hitting  the pike with the Chicago Cubs f��r the  past ten days, but has returned   home.  Bush will be stationed at   third,   and  there is liable to be a few winged Owls  as they pass  him on   their homeward  flight.    A. Biner has been  starring at  short and will probably be in the lint-,  I up.   McKay, Labelle, Strutzelland the j  iCoutts brothers are  all   showing   up  I well in the field but the final selection  will not be made until tomorrow.  The Owls have a genuine pennant  nine". Lawrence McKelvie, who has  already continental fame as a twirler,  will present for the first time in Phoenix the latest New York Merry Widow  curves. They are said to be a most  classical variety which even the eagle  eye of a rubberneck cannot follow.  Hughes, the world-renowned backstop,  will be behind the bat with a Merry  Widow glove. Kelly has been proving  a wonder on first, Billy Murray will  be on second and J. Church will be  guardian at the third sack. Gus Miner  work at short  on bases. In  Munro, Simms and Libby the Owls  have possibly the strongest outfield  combination that has yet appeared on  the local diamond. They will be play-1  ing ball all the time and everything go*  ing their way will be gathered in  Difficulty has been experienced in  securing a capable umpire. It was  thought Jimmy Marshall would have  accepted the post, but since resigning  from the big National league Jimmy  has quit the profession. W. X. Perkins or Judge Williams will likely be  selected.  The titanic struggle will commence  at 2 p. m. sharp.
