N.tctf Maitclsai C.alai  Piano enthusiasts will enjoy a rare  treat in hearing Charles Harper, the  noted pianist, who appears at the Raul  Pereira concert here in the opera house  on June 6th.  .Criticisms fiom other .:ities of Mr.  Harper's performances speak in the  nost.,,glowmg.,teTm��"~o��. his artistic  ability; such expressions as the following  are voiced by many delighted audi  ences.  The Nanaimo Herald says: "The  great Rondo Capriccioso (Mendelssohn) as played by Mr. Harper was a  really great performance, and he may  rest assured that he will always be welcomed by the Nanaimo public."  Although no bonds have as yet been  taken it is more than probable that  Granby interests will'do some development work this summer on Franklin  camp properties under option.  O.    B.   Smith,  superintendent   of  Granby  mines, returned a few  days  ago after making an examination of  several properties onHhe north fork of  the Kettle  river, particularly those in  Franklin camp.    He was accompanied  on the trip by   J.  C. McDonald, surveyor,   P.   Boyles, diamond  drill  ex- j  pert, and M. Cranley.    A  report will  be made to the company and  it is not  unlikely that. Granby will   become interested in one or more of the  properties.   . .    '        ���'      ���   V-.'-i :;  The McKinley and the Glouster are  the particular groups of claims which  Granby interests have under consideration. The McKiriley mine has a  tunnel of about 250 feet at a depth of  175 feet, and 115 feet of drifting.  The property is owned by the McKinley Mines Co. Ltd , who claim to  have secured assays running up to 10  per cent copper, 10 oss. silver and $1  in gold. Close 10 the McKinley are  the Ajax, Jumpo. IJfeL., Manhattan  and Gold King, all7'of which have  good indications of ore.  The Glouster property is on Banner  mountain, close to which are the Ban  ner,   Bullion,  Mountain   Lion,  Alpha  and Home Stake claims.

Copper Resumes  Operations  Company's Production Report  for Month of April  The features of the week in   Boundary  mining   are  the   resumption   of  operations   by   the   British   Columbia  Copper  company,  after an   enforced  idleness of six weeks,   and   the   commencing of shipments from  the coni  party's/Jackpot mine,   the   Wellington  camp  property  to  which the C.P.R.  has  recently completed a 3 mile spur.  Two of the furnaces at the company's  smelter were blown in last Sunday and  all their properties are now  operating  at nearly full capacity.  The Jackpot's first shipment was  made on Monday and the second on  Thursday, the total being twelve cars,  amounting to 480 tons. The property,  which is in charge' of Superintendent  H. Johns, is in good shape to ship a  large tonnage weekly, but only sufficient for smelter requirements will be  sent. The ore carries good values tn  gold and silver and will not only flux  well with tbe lower grade rock from  Mother Lode but will assist materially  in reducing the company's costs per  pound  of copper,  under   the   usual  Hedley   Gold   Mining   Com-  . pany's New Equipment,, t  The Nickle Plate mine,.in the Similkameen, is making.an..excel!ent.show-  ing and its capacity will soon be greatly  increased, according to M.

FURNISHINGS  The force at the Oro Denoro mine  has been increased to fifteen. Shipments to the British Columbia Copper  smelter are being made at the rate of  ten cars per week.  The ore shipments from Granby  mines for the month of May were  98,21 tons. A total of over half a  million tons have been shipped from  its Phoenix mines and treated at the  smelter during the first five months of  1910, as compared with about 390,000  tons during the same period last year.  Prospects are brightening at the  Midway coal property and it is expected some test shipments of coal will  be made in the near future. W. Fleet  Robertson, provincial mineralogist, had  a look over the prospect last week and  advised the management to drift on the  seam. J. H. McMillan has been engaged as,manager of the property.  Charles Biesel, superintendent of the  Snowshoe mine, returned on Tuesday  evening after an aosence of several  weeks. Mr. Biesel was in east Kootenay testing a tie-cutting machine  which he recently invented and it is  understood the tests were entirely satis-  factoiy. A. W. Davis, who has been  acting superintendent during Mr.  Biesel's absence, will return to Moyie  in a few days.  New Doctor Comlnr,  Dr. R. A. Scott will arrive in Phoe  nix in a few days to become associated  with Dr. W. H. Dickson. Dr. Scott  is ah old schoolmate and fellow townsman of Dr. Dickson and comes with a  long hospital training to recommend  him. During the last four years he  has served in the Ottawa General hospital, the Ottawa Infectious Diseases  hospital and the Vancouver General  hospital. The doctor will arrive in Phoenix about the tenth of this month to  take up his duties.  John Allen met with a slight accident at the Jackpot mine on Tuesday.  deposits of selffluxing sulphide ores,  with values running from $8 to $40,  and with the Granby smelter only a  distance of 45 miles away, there is  good prospects for a flourishing camp  on the north fork as soon as railway  facilities are provided. Half the distance will be covered by railway this  fall.   FATALITY AT MOTHER LODE  a. C. McKlttrick  trained br Falling Rock  Last Saturday  G. C. McKittrick was the victim of  a fatal accident at Mother Lode mine  last Satuiday, when he was crushed to  death under a falling rock.  He had been operating a drill on  the 200-foot level with FY G. Kilgour,  and after the blasting they were barring  down loose, rock. A hugh piece of  rock-'hung dangerously and Foreman  Lover instructed the men to keep at a  safe distance from it. During his absence, however, McKittrick took a  chance and passed under the hanging  boulder, which came down and killed  him instantly. An inquest was held  by Coroner Black, the jury returning a  verdict of accidental death.  Deceased had recently come from  Cobalt and was 27 years of age. His  father resides in Indiana.

About 300 feet  is being driven per month and as much  as 75 feet has been driven in a week.  This is being done by two machines  each shift and six muckers (ten men  in all) and only one-ton cars are used  to haul the muck which have to be  pushed 2000 feet to dump. Sixty  men are employed at the Alaska Treasure and the tunnel, which is being  driven to tap the lode, is the main  work at present.

This was taken  advantage, of by a  number of representative wen of Grand  Forks,  and  several 'prospectors   and  others directly interested in the mining  industry.    The meeting was called to  order by XV. Fleet Robertson  of Victoria, provincial  mineralogist,  who is  chairman of the branch for the current  year.  The branch secretary, ��. Jacobs,  of Victoria,  was  also  in  attendance.  Among other members of the institute  present were  Frederic   Kefler, mining  engineer for  the  B. C.  Copper  Co,,  Greenwood;  Wakely  A. Williams, O.  B. Smith, jr., W. B. Bishop and F. E.  Lathe,  of   the  Granby  Consolidated  M. S. and P. Co.; C.  F. J.  Galloway  and ��. J, Conway, of the Whitewater  Deep Mines, Slocan; O. E. LeRoy of  the Geological Survey of Canada, and  Dr. J, Bonsall Porter, professor of mining engineering at   McGill university,  Montreal  ., Local residents present included  Mayor Clark, Martin Burrell,  M.P.,   Police    Magistrate   Cochrane,  Judge Brown, G.   W. Wooster, F.   M.  Kerby, C. S. Galloway, A.  B.   Hood,  E.  Spraggett,  D.   McCallum, R.  A.  Brown  and  many  others.   John   R.  Jackson of Midway, M.P.P. for Greenwood electorate, was among the visitors  from other parts of  the   Boundary.  After the chairman called the meeting  to order Mayor Clark gave the visitors  a hearty welcome to Grand Forks.   In  the course of a felicitous, address he  paid a, tribute of  appreciation to the  country and its being made available for  agriculture and other .industries, under  conditions that were favorable hut not  previously in existence. These several  stages the district ' they'��� were then in  had passed through until now it possessed varied resources which it was  practicable to turn to profitable account  ���in mining, lumbering, stock-raising,  agriculture, fruit growing, etc. He was  very-pleased to be able to again visit  this big and important district which  he bad also seen during several earlier  stages of its settlement. He was glad  to find that the institute he and his  fellow members represented was recognized as doing important and useful  work, and he most sincerely thanked  the gentlemen who had made them  welcome in such kindly terms.  PHOKNIX  DEPOSITS  "The Geology of the Phoenix Ore  Deposits."    In the course of half an-  hour's address Mr. LeRoy gave much  interesting information, which  was the  more readily understood by non-technical men present by reason that the  speaker  illustrated   bis subjects  with  colored   diagrams,  showing  the rock  formations and the positions of the ore  bodies to which  reference was  repeatedly made.    After Mr. LeRoy had replied to some.questions asked, he was  freely applauded. .  KETTLE RIVER ORE  The secretary next read a paper pre  pared by L. Reinecke, also of the Dominion Geological Survey, entitled,  "Silver and Gold Deposition the West  Fork of Kettle River." In this Mr.  Reinecke, who unfortrmately had found  it necessary to hasten to the West Fork  to commence his season's fieldwork  there,- reviewed the rock formations  and occurrences of, gold and silver-  bearing ores in the west' fork country,  chairman  in  his  official  capacity   of | and gave-information concerning de-  mineralogist for the province of British  Columbia, and adfijpwledged the value  . thavgeneral confidence  jrbether it was not possible' to furnish  feb^f^with another set of advisers  with ^whose ideas he would be more in  ���jccottt."

The attention of the visitors was called  to the fact that Grand Forks possesses  the'targest copper smelter in the British  empire.and its very considerable smelt-  uncapacity and modern methods were  Teferred to with pride. The good work  the* Dominion Geological survey has  already .done and is doing in the district was acknowledged, and the hope  w'as expressed that the members of the  institute would at that meeting consider  the desirability of recommending'to the  director of the survey' the great need  that" exists for fuller information relative to tbe North Fork of Kettle  river, and of Franklin camp in particular.^  ~r Martin SurrelLTCP., also welcomed  the visitors and in a happy and appropriate . speech . showed them that  Grand Forks appreciated the importance of the-great mining industry with  which < they are so closely connected  and recognized that they are doing  much good work in developing it and  thereby^utilizing the great mineral resources of the country.  MINERS PIONEERS  The chairman  gracefully   acknow-  ledged the cordiality of th'e welcome  so heartily accorded the western branch  of the Canadian Mining Institute, and  thanked the mayor,  Mr.  Burrell,  and  the citizens of Grand   Forks generally  for the kindness thus shown the visitors.    He paid tribute to the importance of the   Boundary  as  a  mining  district, and stated   that  much of the  increase in mineral  production of the  province in recent years was attributed  to   the  steadily  enlarging   output  of  Boundary  mines.    He   outlined   the  customary course  of development of a  country���the   earliest   pioneers   were  usually  the  trappers  and   fur-traders;'  then came the placer gold miners, who,  made trails into the   country; and next  followed the prospectors who discovered  the ore bodies and   opened them  up  sufficiently for the capitalists to expend 1  money in their development.    Follow-,'  ing the successful devel"pment of the  ore  bodies railways   were   built and  j these facilitated the settlement, of the  vetopment work hitherto done. The  great drawback to extensive development nad been the absence of trans  portation facilities, but this will soon  be remedied and thereafter the ore  bodies of the district will doubtless be  witb / furthur developed.  mines off   ' Following Mr. Reinecke'* paper was I  Victoria, May 30.-���Proposals for the  establishment of a British Columbia  National Park in the Kootenay were  advanced tentatively to tlie Timber  and Forrestry commission at the sitting of that important body here today  by H. G. Chapman of the'' Geological  Survey of Canada.   ,  The chairman prefaced his proposal  with an interesting explanation of steps  in a similar direction already taken by  the United States authorities who have  reserved as a park an extensive area  extending from :the prairies to the  north fork of the Flathead river on the  west, and comprising in all some 1350  square miles. This area* was^formerly  under reserve as a forest but its classification has recently been - changed to  that of a National Park. It is desired  that British Columbia shall establish a  similar.National Park on this side of  the boundary line, tacking on to the  American  park  at   the   international  line.    Such a Provincial Park would con  nect  on one  side  with  the Alberta  Park reserve, and on the other with  the National  Park of Canada, intelligent provision thus, being made for the  protection of game in its annual migration north and south.   The area proposed to be devoted to such  National  Park purchases by British Columbia is  roughly   about   two hundred   square  miles, while the Alberta area connecting is somewhat larger as also that ot  the American.preserve.    It is, contemplated that adequate provision shall be  made for the utilization of the natura  reservation,   mineral, etc.,   within, the  proposed park boundaries the desired  reserve limit being solely for a forest  and game protection purposes.  jmmmfflwwmwi,rwwi��  QUEEN'S HOTEL  R.

No other business having been brought  forward, the chairman declared the  meeting closed.  In addressing the jury in a recent  murder trial in Toronto, Judge Riddel 1 remarked that in all the murder  cases he had been called upon to try,  only one -was. against a native-born  citizen, and in that case the unfortunate man was* seemingly not respon  sible for his act. We do not suppose  that all tbe judges could say the same,  but even the- testimony of this one  seems a striking tribute to the character of our native-born citizens.

NEW FURNACE  FOR SMELTING  Edmonton, May ?a8.���Ah' electric  furnace that, will generate 6000 degrees of heat and that will be used for  the purpose of smelting ore at the  tnduth of the; mines; has' been- rnanu  factored by the Electric Construction  company. The furnace was ordered  by an old prospector who claims he  has valuable holdings somewhere in  the mountains. He intends to pack  the furnace (which weighs little more  than 100 lbs.) and a small generator  to his mine, where he will generate the  necessary electric juice to heat the furnace from a mountain stream and  smelt the ore right on ihe ground,  bringing. back to civilization nothing  but the pure bullion.  The ��� furnace is about 18 inches  square and is insulated with asbestos  lumber and asbestos cement so perfectly that when the interior is heated to  the full 6,000 degrees the outside remains practically cold. The heat is  produced by an electric arc, to which  the current passes through a regulator.  A test of the furnace was made the  other day with a small amount of silver ore in the crucible. In 14 minutes after the current -was turned on  the silver was melted. The interior of  the furnace will remain at a red heat  for some hours after the current is  turned off owing to its complete insulation. This is the first electric furnace  of the kind to be manufactured in  Canada.     .  ," .

There has been about one case out  of ten of the Measles reported to the  proper authorities and this condition  must be put a stop to.      '  It is probable that the householders  of the district are not aware that all  suspected cases of any infectious disease must be reported to the health  officer within 24 hours and failure of  such leaves the head ofthe house open  to a fine of $100, or six months im-  I prisonment, or both at the opinion of  the presiding magistrate.

Such notice shall be given at the office  of the medical health officer,  or by a  communication addressed to him, and  duly   mailed   within   the   time  above  specified." '  Subsection 2, Section, 97, Chap. 91:  "Any person who violates any provision of this act shall, unless it is  otherwise specially provided, be liable  for every such offence to a fine not exceeding one hundred dollars with or  without costs, or to imprisonment with  or without hard laboi for a term not  exceeding six months, or to both fine  and imprisonment in the discretion of  the convicting court."

Burden's hotel, in  Molson, was  set on fire early Sunday morning and  burned down.    There were about 20  people  sleeping in the house at the  time,  many  of whom  had  to jump  from the upper windows in order to  save their lives.    One girl fell onto the  roof of a barber shop and was slightly  injured.    E.V.Kinney  was seen   to  come out of the building when it com  menced to blaze, mount his horse, and  ride   away.    Sheriff  Jones  and   two  others  attempted   to-arrest  hirri  but  he stood the posse off with a gun as  he was afraid of being lynched.    Kinney crossed the line and a message was  sent to the Provincial police office in  Greenwood.    Chief Bunbury, accompanied by Biily Wilson   made a hard  I ride of 50 miles and  captured Kinney  in  a  shack on   Anarchist   mountain.  He did not resist arrest nor make a  gun play.    Inside  of 34   hours from  the time of receiving the message Chief  Bunbury had the prisoner behind the  bars of the Greenwood' jail.    This is  swift work when the long hard ride on  hoiseback is taken into consideration,  and shows that the provincial  officers  in this city are not asleep.���Ledge,    i I  If you stick to a job In hope that it  will reciprocate your action and faithfulness, you are due to get a jolt.
