Millionaire Travelled in Special  Train.  3  to  to  Last Wednesday a distinguished  party visited Ph&enix, travelling in a  special train, and "escorted by high  officials of; the/C.P.R.��'. In the party  were His Grace, 'the'Duke of Slither-  land; his .brother-in-law, Ernest Chap  lin; his secretary. A. Simpson; William  Whyte, 2nd. vice president of the C.P.  R-; Robert Marpole, superintendent  Pacific division; J. S. Lawrence, superintendent Kobte'nay-IJoundary branches  C. E. Cartwright,'.divisional, engineer;  T. C. Irwin, of Toronto; R. M. Breen,  secretary to the general superintendent, and .Road master Johnson. The  private car Minnedosa was utilized to  bring the party into the Boundary, to  gether with Supt.; Lawrence's private  caboose.  Only an hour or two was spent in  Phoenix, during which time his grace  was taken over and about the Granby  mines. The party then proceeded to  Grand Forks, where a visit was made  to the Granby smelter, and the duke  was shown that institution by Supt  Hodges. He had been desirous of  seeing a big copper mine and smelter,  and was gratified. The same night  the boat was taken at Nelson, and the  party proceeded east, whence they will  sajl for home on June 21st, on the  steamer Belgic from New York,  This is die first time that Phoenix  has been visited by a live duke, and  that gentleman .seemed mu:h interested/in what-he'saw.--* He is a large  shareholder in the C.P.R.., and has  been taking a trip over the continent,  having just come from lower California, Portland, Vancouver, etc. In Los  Angeles his grace allowed himself to be  interviewed, much to the horror of the  members of his-parly, but the newspaper men who had the pleasure of  talking with him voted him to be "a  brick." They found, aho, that he  could ask questions as well as they, and  was just as much bent (in getting information. Mr. Chaplin is the father  of Lady Castlereagh, who is said to be  the most.beautiful woman in England.  The ducal party travels with fifteen  trunks, and several of them are said to  be filled with bed linen, about which  his.grace is very particular. This is  used to replace the sheets, pillowcases,  counterpanes, etc., in th'e hotels at  which his grace stops. As the Los  Angeles Examiner remarked : "This  habit will be of interest to American  dukes of finance, who have been in ihe  habit of rolling into bed draped in any  old linen, used theretofore by the mil  honless hoi polloi."  The Duke of Sutherland is rated as  many times a millionaire, and has the  reputation of. being by all odds the  most successful farmer in all England.  In a recently published article on "Ten  Thousand Millionaires," the Duke of  Sutherland's name was in the list o  the world's."Richest Two Dozen," the  following being the.,list:  John I).

This will  be on Thurday, June'29th.  There are quite a number of members of this institute residing in the  Kootenays as well as in the Boundary.  In this section Supt. Hodges, of the  Granby Co., and Manager Kefler, of  tne B. C. Copper Co.; are members,  and will probably look after theparty  while in the Boundary." At\Nelson  they will be given a trip on beautiful  Kootenay lake and invited to hook  some of the finny beauties in the'Kootenay river, and in Rossland courtesies  will also be shown.  Over, 100 persons will he in the  party, comprising the representatives of  the most important metallurgical interests on the American continent; They  will travel in > .'pecial solid train of  Pullman cars, with their wives.

Kennedy, chief engineer for the company, who has a  large force of surveyors 111 the field in  the Similkameen, came in on the stage  from Medley, and left on the train for  the east. He was very reticent, as  usual, about his movements, but it is  said that he has received a summons  to proceed direct to Ottawa. Something definite should be heard by this  lime next week.  THREE WEDDINGS OF PHOENICIANS.  Miss Gray, Mr. Thompson and Mr. Turner  Take Life Partners.  The past week has been prolific in  weddings among Phoenicians, all of the  marriages taking place, however, in  distant places.  THOMl'SON-BAIRD WEDDING.  Wednesday, June 7th, J. E. W.  Thompson, of the firm ot Morrin,  Thompson & Co., was married at Oxbow, N. W.'T., to Miss Etta M.Baird,  at the home of the bride's parents. Mr.  Thompson and bride are expected to  arrive in Phoenix today or tomorrow,  and will settle down in the new home  which Mr. Thompson has purchased  and furnished on the New York town-  site, adjoining the residence of D. J.  Malheson. They will receive a warm  welcome from a large circle of friends.  WEDDING OF MISS OKAY.  The many friends that -Miss Ethel  Robina Blair Gray made while she was  here tor some months on the staff of  the Phoenix General Hospital, will be  interested to learn that she was married  on June 6th, at Montreal, to James  Craige, of Glasglow, Scotland. Miss  Gray is the eldest daughter of A. B.  Gray of Victoiia.  TURNKR- FRASER WEDDING.  Ore shipments from the mines of  the Boundary for the month of May  show the total to have been almost  exactly what the output was in the  month of April. The total for May is  given as 80,044 tons, while that for the  preceding month was 80,102 tons, or  at the rate of nearly a million tons per  annum. In the month of April 13  mines contributed to this total, while  eleven of the well known mines are on  the May list. Owing to the closing  of the Montreal & Boston mines for  the time being, the June total will  doubtless be short, but with the blowing in of two large new furnaces at the  Granby smelter soon, the July total  should again be well up. For pur-  purposes of comparison the totals of  the seveial mines for April and May  are herewith given :  Mine April  Granby mines   49,634  Mother Lode    11,904  Brooklyn    12,378  Rawhide      3i335  Mountain Rose .   ..     1,044  Dominion CopperCo.       980  Oro Dcnoro   Emma   Winnipeg   Providence   Elkhorn   Skylark   Last Chance   E. P. U   Miscellaneous   One furnace at the Granby smelter  was blown out early this week to make  some repairs.  Ore running about $100 per ton has  been struck in the face of the tunnel in  the Highland Queen, near Anaconda.  George Anderson has struck high  grade ore on the Highlander fraction,  adjoining the well known Bell, up the  West Fork. -  Ore shipments from Boundary  mines for 1905 are now well above the  400,000 ton mark. It seems more  than likely that the total for the complete calendar year will run well above  a million tons, as predicted.

Manager H. T. Pemherton, of the  Montreal & Boston Consolidated,  started last Sunday for Montreal and  New York, to consult with the officials  of the company, being called by wire.  Something definite about the company  will be kowrt on his return in a week  or two.  About 100 tons of ore from the Monarch claim, recently acquired by the  Granby Co., and which is expected to  be a large producer with development,  was sent out this week to the Granby  smelter. For the present the ore is  being hauled to the compressor siding  by wagon.  Supt, Hodges states that everything  is going on well with the installation of  the new furnaces at the Granby smelter, the. machinery is there, the brick  all burned and being laid, and some  time the latter part of July the additions should be completed and the  capacity of the works increased over  30 per cent, with a full battery of e'ght  furnaces.  Banquets at Grand Forks and  Phoenix.  'Last Wednesday, June 7th, occured  the wedding of Geo. I.). Turner, bookkeeper for the Hunter-Kendnck Co.  in Phoenix, and Miss Christina Cameron Eraser, eldest daughter of Geo.  S. Eraser, of Coleman, Alberta, and  formerly of Phoenix. The ceremony  was solemnized al Coleman at the residence of the bride's parents, and the  bridal pair are now on a honeymojn  trip, which is expected to take them to  New Westminster, the former home of  Mr. Turner, and perhaps to Portland  fair. George E. I >ey was the best man  at the wedding.  On the return of the newly married  pair some time about the end  of next week, they will start housekeeping in the old Cock residence on  the New York townsite, which the  groom has fitted up for the purpose,  i-arge numbers of friends wish the  couple all possible happiness.  Miss Grace Holman, sister of Supt.  Holman, of the Mother Lode mine,  came up from Spokane Thursday, to  spend the summer with her brother.  Miss Holman is musical instructor  in the Spokane public schools,  C.P.R Rates I* Portliad Fair.  The C.P.R. have placed on sale at  Nelson, Rossland, and all stations on  Boundary sectijn return tickets to  Portland at $23.75, g����d for 30 days.  Corresponding rates are made from all  Kootenay points. Tickets are good  via either Columbia river or Slocari  routes. Also good via Vancouver and  the superb new steamship,"Princess  Victoria, to Seattle. For berth reservations and further particulars apply to  local agent or write to j. S.: Carter, D.  P.A., Nelson.  LOCAL JOTTINGS  J  Joseph S. Carter," of Nelson, travelling passenger agent of the C.P.R., was  in the city yesterday 'on one of his  petiodical trips.  M. V. Sherbino, who has been in  the. office of P. Burns & Co. here for  some months, will shortly take charge  of. the new shop at Oroville. He went  to Spokane yesterday.  Morrell's moving picture and vaudeville, show, which gave a successful entertainment Thursday evening at  Miners' Union hall, will appear again  tonight with a complete change of programme.  Wm. Yolen Williams and John  Rogers returned from, a trip to Copper  mountain in the Similkameen by Sun  day's Hedley's stage. Mr. Williams  left for Grand Forks and Spokane the  next day.  The topics in the Presbyterian  church tomorrow will be in the morning: "The Duty of Every Day," and in  the evening: "The Pledge of Victory."  Mrs. Mills and Mr. McCurradh will  sing a duet in the evening.  Mayor Hammar, of Grand Forks, is  having his troubles over the discharge  of Wm. VVaterston, city engineer. The  mayor wishes to reduce civic expenses,  and Mr. Waterston does not care to  have a start made with himself.  Supt. Dermody now has about 40  men at work at the Providence mine,  the leading high grade mine of the  Boundary. Drifting is going on at two  or three levels, which means considerable in the way of shipping. President  Madden, Of the company, is just ordering a seven drill compressor plant  or the Providence, and with the large  ore reserves this property should be  distributing another dividend at no  distant date.  Gen. Manager Graves, of the Granby Co., is in camp, having recently returned from a trip to New York. He  stated that the new three compartment  shaft would soon be started, and when  completed would be equipped with a  large and powerful hoist, big ore  crusher, and ore bins so that both railways could get tonnage therefrom. Mr.  Graves, who is much improved in  health, was accompanied here by Gen.  Supt. Hodges.  This week two four horse loads of  mining material were sent out by the  Granby Co. to claims recently bonded  on Kruger or Dividend mountain, between Osoyoos lake and the Similkameen river. It is understood that a  bond has been taken on the Lakeview  and Dividend claims, on which some  prospecting will be done. John Rogers  will be in charge and will put a dozen  men at work. The ore is said to be a  large body of pyrrhotite and magnetite, and has excellent fluxing qualities  when smelted with sulphide ores of the  Boundary.  This week the Fraternal Order of  Eagles has been much in evidence in  the Boundary, it being the occasion of  the annual convention of the Grand  Aerie of British Columbia at Grand  Forks. Delegates were present from  all over the Drovince, accompanied by  many friends and members, and the  entire company of visitors, to the number of i etween 100 and 20c, were  shown every possible courtesy, both at  Grand Forks and Phoenix.  The first meeting was held Monday,  followed by a banquet at Grand Forks,  and on Tuesday the delegates -md  friends visited Phoenix, where they  were the guests of the local aerie, No.  158. The 125 visitors were shown  through the Granby mines by Supt.  Smith, and afterwards entertained at a  smoker and banquet at Miners' Union  hall. A good programme, both vocal  and instrumental, was provided for  their entertainment, which was enjoyed  till midnight, when they returned to  Grand Forks by special train over the  Great Northern, after expressing great  pleasure at the way they had been  treated by members of the local aerie.  The banquet was provided by Danny  Deane, and was greatly praised by all  who participated.   ���  At the next day's session the following officers of the grand lodge were  chosen for the ensuing year :  Grand President, A.

Franklin camp.  His views of the potentialities of the  mineral bearing Kettle river basin,  were as interesting as ever, and well  worthy perusal." In them, however,  he skilfully weaves a special pleader  for that terribly down trodden corporation, the C.P.R., and truthfully says  that the C.P.R. reduced freight rates  long before the Great Northern was  doing business in this section. He  thinks, also, that the Boundary will be  producing copper long after the mines  of Butte are done for.  ���**  ' Now, one wonders why Mr. O'Farrell came all the way from Butte to tell  us all these good things. To the residents of British Columbia there is nothing new about it. Perhaps, however,  Mr. O'Farrell wishes to'get away from  the sulphur fumes of his home village  for a while.  MS  There is still another possible ex-  p'anation. Mr. Heinze formerly owned thc Trail smelter and the Columbia  & Western railway and charter, with  millions of acres of land in the Koot-  enays that came as a gift, without  money and without price, in the days  when provincial governments were different from the present McBride government. The smelter and the railway-  Mr. Heinze unloaded on the C.P.R.  at a-good figure, but the land, at least  some of it, Mr. Heinze is understood  to still possess. . Possibly Mr. Heinze  asked his friend Mr. O'Farrell to give  his friends, the C.P.R., a boost at a  time when a boost seems needed. At  any rate, he boosted good and hard for  the C.P.R., whatever the direct cause.  ���M  The C.P R- has done great things  for the Boundary, and the Boundary  has grown apace, as a result of this  assistance. But let no one think the  C.P.R. is a philanthropic concern���  any more than the Great Northern is,  for that matter. While the C.P.R. has  done splendidly by the Boundary, the  Boundary has done even better for the  C.P.R. in comparison. So; there you  are. This section has paid the C.P.R.  immense interest in tonnage for every  dollar that has been spent here in railway construction. So honors are easy.  **#  The Greenwood Tinits is shoeing  commendable enterprise in nlertak-  ing  the  publication of a Specm!

Mr. Justice Martin was a visitor in  Hedley a short time ago, and was sur  prised'to learn that the place had but  two mails per week, when the regular  mail route was . operated more frequently. ' He'tindertook to write personally to Sir William Mulock, the  postmaster-general, on the subject.  m  Now, if Mr. Martiiv would also look'  into theP.hoenix-liholt-Greenwood mail  service, he-would confer a small favor,  on humanity in general in this section.  He would find that although three  stages are operated between Phoenix  and Greenwood every day in the year,  it requires two days for mail matter to  be transmitted by the great Dominion  postofnee department between the two  places. This of itself i"s**bad enough,'  but no one caii even be certain that  two days is sufficient to cover the distance that any one can'go "over in an  hour or less.  If Mr. Justice Martin or Sir Wm.
