Miner  sold out a large part of his interest in  the Granby Consolidated, and with his  assistant, A. C. Flumerfelt, has since  devoted most his attention, as far as  mining was concerned, to the getting  out of coal, and building a town called  Coleman at their colleries in the Crow's  Nest Pass. Here the International  Coal and Coke Co. has been steadily  working for two or three years past,  und today probably has one of the best  propositions of its kind in Alberta.  Mr. Flumerfelt, the president of that  company, spent a day or two in Phoenix this week, and told something of  what had been done in Coleman in a  short two years or less. The town  now has a population of 700 or 800  souls, the company's mines employing  between 350 and 400 men. At present the output is in the neighborhood  of 1,500 tons of coal daily, the run of  the mines being supplied to the C. P.  R. and to the Canadian Northern,  while the 105 coke ovens are busily-  engaged in turning out that commodity,  which is sold to the Dominion Copper  Co. at Boundary Falls. About a hundred tons of coke are manufactured  daily. The monthly payroll at Coleman runs above $30,000.  Coleman itself is a thriving little  burg, with many neat residences and  up to date business concerns. It has  but two hotels and the company,which  owns the townsite, does not intend to  have any more than that for years to  come.  The company probably produces its  coal as cheap or cheaper than any  other company in the Pass, the mine  be;ng operated almost entirely by tunnels, haulage being done by compressed air. A splendid machinery  plant was installed at the outset, and  is doing the best of service. G. L,.  Fraser, formerly of Phoenix, who went  to the Coleman" mines, as master me  chanic, has been made superintendent,  and is doing good work. The company gets along well with the miners'  union, which has a branch there of the  United Mine Workers of America, and  the outlook for the mines and the town  seem to be of the best.  Their Eyes on Capper.  Since Mr. Miner and Mr. Flumer  felt sold out of the Granby Consolidated���Mr. Miner, however, still being a  large shareholder���they have put this  coal business on a substantial foundation, and they are well pleased with it.  However, it appears that they still  have their eyes on copper, and, seemingly, would like to take a hand in it  once more.  H. N. Galer, manager of the International Coal and Coke Co., and formerly assistant manager of the Granby  Co., was here also this week with Mr.  Flumerlelt, and the two gentlemen  went out to Hartford Junction to have  a look at the Hartford group of mineral claims. They with Mr. Miner  and William Farwell own a control in  this group, and they propose to see if  something cannot be done to put ihe  property on its feet. At any rate, they  intend to consider the matter further.  The price of copper is most attractive,  transportation in the Boundary is now  all lhat could be desired, and it would  not be surprising to see active work  undertaken at thc 1 lartford some day  in the near future, if investigations are  favorable. The group had some work  done on it six years ago, with a shaft  down 100 feet or more and considerable drifting, but no ore has yet been  sent out from the property.  Mr. Flumerfelt resumed his journey  to Montreal on Thursday and Mr.  Galer returned to Coleman.  Phil McDonald,1 of Greenwood, was  renewing old acquaintances here  Thursday.  John McRae, of McRae Bros. &  Smith Ltd., made a business trip to  Nelson yesterday.  Mrs. A. B.W. Hodges accompanied  Mr. Hodges on a trip to Phoenix from  Grand Forks on Wednesday.  Provincial Constable I. A. Dins-  more, ol Grand Forks, was here yesterday on professional business.  Emil Almstrom returned Saturday  from atwo weeks trip to Norlhport, leaving his family on his ranch near there.  F. W. Thomas, of New York, consulting engineer for the B. C. Copper  Co., after spending some ten days in  the Boundary, left for the coast last  Saturday.  A. Much more, of'Vancouver, representing the American Type Founders'  Co., spent a day or two here this week,  leaving for Spokane and the coast  yesterday.  Wm. Dickman, of Rockville, Wis.,  the original locator of the Providence  mine, arrived here Wednesday, and  will likely spend some time in the  Boundary.  Rev. Lundie spent a few days in  Cascade this week, and incidentally  wooed the finny denizens of Christina  lake. Only one specimen responded  to the woo, however.  William Harding, Great Northern  passenger conductor in and out of  Phoenix, was attending court in Rossland this week, being a witness in  some timber matters.  Ed. Stirling, formerly of the Nelson  Proctor run of the C. P. R., and pre  vious to that on the White Wings  Limited on the Phoenix branch, is  once more handling the punch between Eholt and Phoenix.  Dr. James Sproat was a visitor here  last Saturday, shaking hands with old  friends, and leaving the next day for  Portland, Oregon, where he has located for the practice of his profession.  He recently graduated from the  Toronto University. ..  Rev. C. Wellesley Whittaker, left  Monday to attend the annual conference of the Methodist church at  Victoria, and will visit his old home in  England before returning to Phoenix.  Francis Knott is the lay delegate from  Phoenix to the conference.  GT. NORTHERN  IN NORTH FORK  Boundary Mining Notes  Said  to   Intend  to  Build  Franklin Camp.  Chief Engineer Kennedy is the  Authority.  The   announcement   conies    from  Grand Forks that James  H. Kennedy,  chief   construction   engineer   for   the  V., V. & E. railway, who has   recently  been at Ottawa, to appear   before   the  railway commission regarding   the  tering of the town of   Medley,   in  Similkameen, by his   line,   which  C.P.R  was opposing,   has   made  statement this week that the   V., V,  en-  ihe  the  the  &  E. will at once proceed to construct a  branch line of railway up the North  Fork of Kettle River to Franklin  camp. According to the information,  Mr. Kennedy is now in Grand Forks  and is arranging to send parties of surveyors into the Nurth Fork country,  to select the most feasible toute.  If the Kettle Valley lines continues  with its announced intention to build  up the North Fork, that section will  evidently have several railways, and  almost before it has a wagon road.  MR. JOHNSON  WAS PLEASED  Suipecli Were Discharged.  Last Saturday morning Conductor  Nelson, who has charge of a C. P. K.  ore train out of Phoenix, arrived in  Nelson to spend the Sunday with his  family. As he stepped off the train at  Nelson he was held up by a couple of  men and relieved of his watch, some  $1 So in cash being fortunately overlooked hy the thugs. Monday Chief  of Police Flood took into custody two  men who had just alighted from a box  car in the C. P. R. yards here, suspected with being the thieves. They  were held a couple of days, and closely  questioned by the police officials here,  as well as by Officer Dinsmore, of  Grand Forks, it being a provincial  case. Their names were John T.  Gibson and Chas. Connors. Being  brought before the police magistrate,  they were finally warned to leave town  very suddenly, which they did. Nelson  felt certain that one of the suspects  held him up, but could not swear to  it, so they were discharged.  With Dominion   Copper  Progress.  Smelter  Plant   Doubled  Early Fall.  by  Qreeowood Strike Settled.  The strike which was on last week  on tht contractors for the new work at  the 13. C. Copper Co.'s smelter at  Greenwood, has been settled by W. P.  Tierney and James Creelman, the contractors, granting the $3 for a nine  hour day, which was demanded. This  strike did not affect the operation of  the smelter itself in any way.  Tlie strike declared on the West  Kootenay Power & Light Co.'s substation at Anaconda, adjoining the B.  C. Copper Co.'s smelter, has not yet  been settled. The men asked the  same hours and wages as above, and  they are still out. L. A. Campbell, the  manager of the company, was in Greenwood' from Rossland late last week,  looking into the matter, but at last accounts no compromise had been  reached.  Latest Prices in Metals  New York���Copper, electrolytic  25    fS}$18.60; lako. $18.50�� $18.75  Bar Silver,fl5?g  Lend, $*.50 U�� tf.60.  *18.-  After spending a week in the Boundary looking after the interests of his  company, Maurice M. Johnson, consulting engineer for the Dominion  Copper Co., Ltd., and a member of  the company's board of directors, left  for his headquarters in Salt Lake City  by Wednesday's Great Northern train.  While in the Boundary, Mr. Johnson,  in company with Thomas R. Drum-  mond, the resident manager, visited  the Sunset, Brooklyn, Stemwinder,  Rawhide and Mountain Rose mines ol  the concern, inspecting thc work that  is being done at the several properties.  He also spent some time at the smelter, discussing enlargements and improvements with W.C.Thomas, superintendent of the company's reduction  works at Boundary Falls, that have  been doing such excellent work  since they were blown in a few-  months ago!  To a representative of the Pioneer,  Mr. Johnson said that he was very well  pleased indeed with the results of development at the various properties of  the company, and with the metallurgical results being obtained at the  smelter. All branches of the company's work are moving along smoothly,  and withing thirty days preparations  will be started for the enlarging of the  smelter, where another furnace, as  large as the two now in use, will be installed, doubling its capacity. This  work, Mr. Johnson thought, should be  completed so that the increased capa  city can be handled by early fall. In  the meantime the mines also will be  placed in a position to furnish the increased output, which is now about  650 tons daily. The new 25-drill air  compressor plant for the Idaho will be  installed, and from that time on the  plant is expected to reduce at least  1200 tons daily and produce about a  carload of copper matte every 24 hours.  Mr. Johnson, who is also consulting  engineer for several other enterprises  m which Samuel Newhouse is interested, expects to return to the Boundary  in a few weeks.  Building tbe Connecting Link.  This week Ed. McGrade, foreman  of the C.P.R. extra gang, put his force  of some 18 sons of sunny Italy at  work on grading the spur track which  will connect the C.P.R. and Great  Northern systems at Denoro. It is  expected that it will require but two or  three weeks to complete the three or  four hnndred feet of grade and track,  the rails of both roads running close  together at that point. The spur will  run from the B. C. spur of the C.P.R.  to the Great Northern on Oro Denoro  ground. This point is about eight  miles from Phoenix by either line, and  will enable the Idaho mine in this  camp, located on the Great Northern,  to send ore to the company's Boundary Falls smelter, located on the C.  P. R. The same thing will work in  getting Showshoe ore to the North port  smelter, whenever that shall have been  finally decided upon.  Development work is to be resumed  on the Betts and Hesperus about  June 1st.  The new   crusher   for.the  Granby  to   mines, which arrived a few days since,  will be located at the headworks of the  new main three-compartment shaft.  J.C. Haas, M.E.,of Spokane, arrived  in the Boundary this week, and expects to see work started on the Gol-  conda once more at no distant date.  It is reported that a deal has been  arranged for the bonding of the Big  Copper to Boston capitalists, and that  the papers were finally to be signed this  week.  The machinery for the five stamp  mill for the Carml, which has been at  Midway for some time, was unloaded  and sent to the mine up the West  Fork last week.  Officials of the B. C. Copper Co.  are reported to have recently visited  Gloucester camp, and to have taken  a bond on the Gloucester group from  George A. McLeod.  It is said that the crosscut in the  ore body on the Pathfinder, on the  North Fork, is in some 30 feet and  continues in ore. The property is  under bond to the Granby Co.  Some of the machinery for the enlargements at the B. C. Copper Co.'s  Greenwood smelter is beginning to  arrive, several car loads having already  been received from the manufacturers  in the east.  A sample of free gold ore from the  Neverslip, owned by Jos. Simpson,  and located near Grand Forks, gave  $5,284 per ton in gold and a trace of  copper. The quartz ledge is said to  be a large one.  The Canadian Western Oil Co.,  Ltd., now being formed is composed  largely of Greenwood men, and is the  first concern, so it is claimed, to secure a lease on coal and oil lands in  British Columbia.  The electric hoist for the Prince  Henry mine has arrived from Denver,  and is being installed at the property.  This will place this property in excellent condition to proceed energetically  with development work.  The Dominion Copper Co.'s special  meeting, called a couple of weeks ago,  will be held next Saturday at the company's office in Phoenix, to authorize  the issuance and sale of $300,000 first  mortgage bonds and 228,000 shares of  capital stock, par, $10.  Keipiro Nakamura, who is chief  metallurgist for the Besshi copper  mines, Island of Shikoku, southwest of  Kobe, Japan, is about to investigate  the metallurgical processes in vogue in  the three Boundary smelters, having  visited the coast smelters on a similar  quest.  Last Monday No. 1 furnace at the  Granby smelter was blown in once  more, after undergoing repairs and a  decided enlargement, according to the  plans of Supt. Hodges. This furnace  was first blown in on August 21, 1900,  and was also the first furnace blown in  at any smelter in the Boundary.  PAYROLL WAS  ABOUT $60,000  April  Wages   Paid  This Camp.  Out  in  Boundary   Pay   Was  $126,000.  Over  BROKE HIS LEO-DIED OF PNEUMONIA.  Conrad  Qusiafson   Was   Burled   Tuesday In  Local Cemetery.  List Sunday Conrad Custafson, a  miner who had been employed by the  Granby Co. at the Gold Drop, died of  pneumonia at the Phoenix General  Hospital. He was taken to the hospital some little time ago suffering from  a broken leg, some rock that he was  barring down having caught him and  crushed the limb. The fracture was a  bad one, one of the worst seen here in  a long time, and it was mending in  good shape. Before being hurt, however, Gustafson had contracted a bad  cold and this developed into pneumonia and carried him off.  The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, under the auspices of Phoenix  Miners' Union No. S, of which deceased was a member, interment taking  place m the Phoenix cemetery.  Gustafson had a brother in camp,  the two having come here from Moyic  last September, where they had been  employed in the St. Eugene mine.  Deceased was a young man of 23  years, unmarried and a native of  Sweden.  Oraaby Preildenl   Here Today.  Today Jacob Langeloth, president  of the Granby Consolidated, will be  here from New York, to inspect the  properties of the company. He wi  be accompanied by Mrs. Langeloth,  Jay P. Graves, general manager of the  company, Mrs. Graves and A. B. W.  Hodges, general superintendent of the  company. The party is expected to  ���Stay in Phoenix two or three days,  Matters are being shaped up here  on two or three mining deals of no  little importance, which will, if consummated as expected, add materially  to the already'comfortable payroll of  Phoenix. Several large groups of  claims are included, and an announcement in the matter is expected  shortly.  The payroll for the mines and  smelters of the Boundary for the  month of April, runs, as usual, over  $126,000, although it is a trifle less  this month than the month before,  owing to the Granby Co. having had  one furnace out of commission most of  the month, while repairing and enlarging at the smelter.  For Phoenix camp the payroll, which  was distributed last Thursday, amounted lo about $60,000, which, for the  reason above mentioned, was somewhat smaller than last month. From  this on, however, the payroll for Phoenix should hold well up to $65,000  per month, and will likely go above  that figure before the summer is out.  All day long on Thursday there was  a stream of men going from the Dominion Copper and Granby offices to  the Eastern Townships Bank to get  their pay checks cashed, and the  amount of money in circulation was  increased to an appreciable degree.  At the B. C. Copper Co.'s Greenwood smelter and Mother Lode mine,  exclusive of construction work, the  payroll Thursday was $26,000.  The following is an approximate estimate of the payroll of the three largest mining and smelting concerns in  Boundary for April, which was disbursed this week:  Granby Consolidated  $75,000  B. C. Copper Co     26,000  Dominion Copper Co     25,000  Total $ 12 6,000  Old Maids' Association.  Wednesday evening Phoenix Lodge  of the I.O.G.T. gave an entertainment  in the main lodge room of Miners'  Union hall, there being an excellent  attendance of the faithful and their  many friends. It was "The Old  Maids' Association," similar to an entertainment of the same nature given  here some six years ago. Those who  took part were Miss Clark, Miss Howe,  Miss Wall, Miss Botha, Miss Marhn,  Miss McKenzie, Miss Targett, Mrs.  Knott, Mrs. Boyce, Mrs. Gordon, Mrs.  Dan Martin, Mrs. Hugh Reid, with  Gilbert McEachern taking the part of  the professor. Much merriment was  created by the experiences as related  by the old maids, and the evening  closed with refreshments.  Returns from the last car of high  grade ore shipped from the Skylark  mine gave an average of $158.40 per  ton in gold and silver. F. C. Buck-  less has been hauling another couple  of cars this week. Before the summer  is gone the company expects to have  the bond paid up on this property.  NOTICE.

Recently the editor of the   Nelson  Daily   News  has made the statement  several times that, unless the  business  men of Nelson see fit  to support that  paper more liberally, it would be forced  j to discontinue publication.    Thus the  matter would appear   to  be up to the  people most interested .in that thriving  town,  and they must decide.    Is the  News doing all possible   for  the   upbuilding   of  the  place or not?    Is it  possible  to  publish   a   better   paper  there ?  Most emphatically we should, say  that the News is doing all and more  than its full share to make known the  advantages of the Kootenay metropolis as such.     It certainly is publishing  Fernie seems to   be   having  several  kinds of trouble with the big coal company, which has its headquarters there,  and   which   seems   to    pay  about  as  much  attention   to   side   issues   as   it  does to coat.mining and coke making.  The company owns,   through   another  company, the water and light systems,  and also controls the telephone system.  Recently  a controversy came  up   between the Fernie city council and   the  coal company,   and   the  council   won  out by appealing to the  courts.    Now  then the coal concern   has raised   the  price of water, etc., and the people  of  Fernie are paying through the nose for  everything the Crow's Nest Pass   Coal  Co. has a say about.    They decline to  bow down to the  coal  god,   and   the  latter puts on the screws.

This is noticeable just now  in  the success that is attending the  mining of low grade ores in the Boundary  district of British Columbia. For years  two or three companies  pegged  away  here,;working out the problem of how  ito  make ������ ore   extraction  here commercially  profitable,    when  many  of  .    supposed good judgment  shook  their  heads at  the   immense   amounts   of  capital being put into these properties.  Then came the gradual  evolution,  from the stage where the   mines   were  undoubtful column, to that where they  ���bad. demonstrated the ability to make  cppper.here.at  a  profit.    On   top   of  this came the increase in the  price  of  the. red metal in the  world's  markets,  and then began the turn of the tide.  Last January the Granby Consolidated paid a dividend of $405,000,  and next week this company will pay  another similar dividend. This is expected to continue three or four times  a year hereafter. The B.C. Copper  and Dominion Copper companies are  both doing well and doubling or more  than doubling their capacities for producing copper, there being no trouble  now to finance propositions of this sort  here. The Granby, as well, in ac  cordance with its custom for years,  is still planning and arranging for a  greater output each year.  In addition to these healthy signs  and proofs of prosperity, is the fact that  other capitalists are having their attention drawn to this section as never  before, and it is an open secret that  more than one group of moneyed men  is now figuring on entering this low  grade field with all the cash necessary.  They-are following in the wake of those  who have stood the burden of making  low grade mining in the Boundary a  success, but they are none the less  welcome on that account. They think  that tha psychological time for investment here has arrived and we agree  with them. 'J he path has been hewed,  the problem demonstrated, other great  copper lodes await them, and they will  be welcome  if they  come   with   the'  a good paper for  this country'-    The  paper certainly cannot be  making any  money.      Outside of Nelson, as far as  the reading public goes,  the  paper  is  appreciated and   patronized���in   the  I Boundary and through the Kootenays.  F. J. Deane, the editor, is today doing  more than any other one man for the  good of Nelson.      Not  only that, but  he is attempting, in his enthusiasm, to  do   what  not  one  in fifty newspaper  men  of experience would   attempt���  trying to make it a paying proposition.  Many of little experience w;ould doubtless   like   to  tackle it���with   others'  money; but few would care  for  it for  tbe profits in  sight.    And so, we say,  that Mr. Deane should receive a greater  measure of support.    If he does not,  the  town   will  be a greater loser than  he.  Unquestionably the best and greatest advertisement any place can have  is a good local paper, whether it be  daily or weekly. If the town has such,  it is the duty of every business man to  patronize it���not as a charily, for it is  nothing of the kind, but strictly as a  business proposition. No matter where  located, whether in Nelson, or any  other part of Canada, or in Phoenix,  the local paper, if clean, up to date  and creditable, is entitled to the.support of every man interested in that  town. If this support is lacking,  sooner or later the paper must suspend  or curtail, in either of which events it  is hanging out the flag of distress, and  the business men must feel the effects  of it in due course. Nelson should  support its Daily News. It is clean,  creditable and up to date���the best  advertisement Nelson ever had or is  ever likely to have, for, after an experience of twenty years in the newspaper  business, we miss our guess if another  man will be found who will put the  time, labor and cash into the proposition that Mr. Deane has.  on the C. P. R. was put into effect on  the   Boundary    branch.      The   chief  effect is receiving mails an hour earlier,  and in the  cutting  out   of communication entirely in one day by   rail   between Phoenix, Greenwood, Boundary  Falls and Midway���by which the C.P.  R. will   lose  considerable   patronage.  Once again, although Phoenix   is   but  five  miles   from   Greenwood,   and  is  connected with that lown by Canada's  greatest railway, it   requires   two   days  for the transmission of mails   between  the two places.  am  The legislators of the new province  of Alberta seem to think their brain  ?nd talent are valuable, as they have  fixed upon $1,000 each for the sessional indemnity of a few weeks, which  is said to be the highest of any province in the Dominion. Doubtless,  they need the money.  ***  Frank Leslie's Illustrated Weekly  recently had an article on the Granby  Consolidated, with a view of the  smelter. It was published for the purpose of calling attention to the Mineral  Hill propeities, a few miles distant  across the international boundary line,  near Danville, Wash. Thus do the  little fellows continue to travel in the  wake of the Granby.  Not II as Rich is Rockefeller.

In the Dominion of Canada, the Granby mines were  not the first copper mines worked, but  they are today the greatest copper producers in Canada.  '  The first rail on  the Grand  Politicians east and west are now  treating of the contract made by the  Laurier government with the North  Atlantic Trading Co., and Duncan  Ross, M. P.,���our own Duncan���was  selected to make a speech on the  floor of the house defending the measure. It was a disagreeable job for  Duncan, out he had no choice about  it, and jumped right out into the  limelight, getting his name in the  press all over Canada. That  the contract was a pernicious one is  shown by the fact that the government  cancelled it. Independent and nonpartisan dailies criticised the measere  unmercifully, and the Grits backed  out of the matter as gracefully as  possible.  Sort Nipples.

Thousands of stories have been  written regarding the almost inconceivable experiences at the time of the  recent earthquake at San Francisco,but  we have seen nothing that seemed  more graphic than that" contained in a  letter to the editor of the Pioneer, received from H. S. Turner, once a resident of Phoenix, but for the last two  years successfully conducting a printing establishment of his own in the  heart of San Francr:co. While Mr.  Turner's loss was fortunately little, his  son, a wholesale arifeciionery manufacturer, with several letail stores, lost  nearly everything. Following is the  letter in part:  San Francisco, Cal., April 29, '06.  W. B. Willcox,  Phoenix, B.C.,  Mv Dear Willcox,���I and mine,  at this writing, arc alive. 1 was not  burned out, but my two boys were���  homes and businesses. My office was  pretty well overturned, and my presses  were mote or less injured by the awful  convulsion; but with plenty of help I  was able to do business the second day  after the crash.  But, oh; Mr. Willcox, of all the  horrors that human b:ing are called to  witness, this terrific rage of irrcs.stible,  unseen and unheralded force of nature,  which overthrew our beautiful city in a  lew seconds, is the climax. The sepulchral, deafening roar which for a  few seconds preceded the twisting jerk,  was enough to frighten the life out of  one; and then came the inexpressible  din and clatter of crashing limbers and  falling brick walls and chimneys.  This   whole   peninsula    sceuicd    to  wave in space like a long streamer in a  stiff breeze, then,  l':ke the  snapper on  the end of a long lash, we got an awful  jerk.   It was simply paralyzing.   There  are sections   in   the city where four or  five blocks were moved in a body from  si\- to ten feet, and some were sunken  from   ten   to fifteen   feet.    The street  railway tracks were twisted so   out  of  place as to need complete  reconstiuc-  tion.   All the power houses in the uiy  were destroyed, both trolley and cable.  The gas  and   electric  plants   having  been destroyed, we  have neither light  nor  power.    The   only   light we are  permitted to use is a tallow dip.      All  the chimneys   having been destroyed,  we have been compelled  to  move our  stoves   into   the street and keep house  there.    The two   first   nights after the  shock we slept on the  hills���afraid to  go into our houses, for, until yesterday,  the quakes have been quite serious and  frequent.  Our home newspapers have not told  a tithe of the horrors of this escapade  of nature. They have studiously minimized everything. The destruction  of life and property by the quake was  great, but that by fire was t reattr. On  the night of the second day of the fire,  I stood on Bernal Heights, near my  office, and saw a raging wall of fire  and furious flames over four miles in  length; then the heartrending scenes  incident to a stampede of tens of  thousands of frantic human beings.  The most vivid imagination cannot  picture anything so appalling.  Though the papers report a few hundred lives lost, it "is generally claimed  that more than two thousand cannot  be accounted for. After martial law  was declared, at least fifty people were  shot to death for thieving or other  crimes. Two hundred were poisoned  by eating of canned goods that were  partially destroyed by fire, and their  bodies were cremated.  As all the wholesale stores were destroyed, the supplies in the retail stores  were soon depleted and we all have to  get in the bread line to get food, some  of these lines being half a mile long,  five and six abreast. I've stood beside  men who, a few hours previous, were  millionaires, and with them taken  bread and other supplies from the relief committees. My wife says, tell  Mr. Willcox that there have been 32  quakes since the heavy one. (Yes,  and three more last night.)  H. S. Turner.'  In a letter dated May 4th, Mr. Turner also says :  We have no lights other than candles,  no power for machinery, only one  street car line in operation, and we  still have to do our cooking in the  streets, as there is not a whole chimney  in the fraction of the city left, nor  hardly a building not out of plumb���  they are all zigzag. The fire in  places is still burning, and the stench  from cooked human corpses is sickening. I was just informed by a prominent undertaker that the estimated loss  of life was over ten thousand. Some  of the bodies are buried, some are in  cinerated and some are weighlcd and  thrown into the bay. I want to get  away from these heartrending, harrowing surroundings.  banking business entrusted to our keeping  receives the most careful attention.

In the last ten or fiteen years the  Boundary country has had the attention of many prominent mining men,  but probably none of more importance  than Samuel Newhouse, of Salt Lake  City, managing director of the Dominion Copper Co., Ltd., who first.became interested in that incorporation  about a year ago.  Mr. Newhouse was   born   in   New  York City in 1855, and is thus a comparatively young man to have achieved  international name  and   fame,  to say  nothing   of  the   many   millions with  which he is credited.    He was educated in the public schools   of Philadelphia,   and after graduation   read   law  with Hon. E. N. Willard, of Scranton,  a jurist of high rank  in  the  commonwealth of Pennsylvania.    In 1879 Mr.  Newhouse arrived in   Leadville,   the  Cloud   City   of  the Centennial state,  and for a time gave  his   attention   to  newspaper   work,   which may account  for his consideration of the   members  of the fourth estate.     In a short time,  however, he became a freighter, and as  there were   no   railways in those days,  the freighter was the important man of  the community, and one   who rapidly  made   money.      Consequently,     Mr.  Newhouse quickly acquired a solid but  modest financial foundation.    In 1885  he turned his entire attention to practical mining, taking  leases and bonds,  and by working in  the mines   himself  for  the first    few   years,   acquired   a  knowledge and experience which soon  proved to be far beyond value to him.  Today   Mr.   Newhouse   is   one  of  those leaders of men whose name is as  well known in the innermost  financial  circles of London as it is in New York,  Colorado, Utah, Montana and Califor  nia, this being shown by the  fact  that  he   is associated   financially with  the  Guggenheims,   the   Untermeyers,  the  Rockefellers, the Rogers and others of  the financial world.    He has gathered  around him a corps of experts ready at  all times to critically examine all properties under consideration, and it has  become almost  proverbial that a mining property under his control is practically  sure   to turn   out  a   dividend  payer and not a quasi failure.    In Salt  Lake  City   he has maintained one of  the most perfectly equipped  forces of  mining experts, surv :yors, assayers and  chemists   that   exists   in   the   United  States, installed   in   a   suite of offices  that are regarded as one of the sights  of that city.  Mr. Newhouse was the original  owner of the famous Highland Hoy  mine, now incorporated as the Utah  Consolidated Gold Mines, Ltd., and  sold a half interest in this company to  the Standard Oil people for about  $6,000,000, he being still one of the  directors of the compiny. Mr. New-  house is also president and managing  director of the Boston Consolidated  Copper Mines, 11 copper producer adjoining the Highland Boy, at Bingham,  Utah, too well known to need extended reference here.  One of Mr. Newhouse's greatest  efforts, however, is centered around the  town of Newhouse, where the great  Cactus copper mine is owned'and  operated by the Newhouse Mines and  Smelter Coporation, located in southwestern Utah, not far from Nevada.  Two years ago there was nothing there,  while today Mr. Newhouse is spending  millions in the building of a model  mining camp, centered around his far  famed mines. He believes that labor  is responsive to good treatment, and  he proposes to show that here, at least,  is one corporation with a soul, and a  portion of the profits, he announced,  should go to the miners. This property, like nearly all mines in which Mr.  Newhouse is interested, will doubtless be a dividend payer for years to  come.  In 1883 Mr. Newhouse married  Miss Ida H. Stingley, of Virginia, the  family being in truth one of the F. F.  V.'s. In London they maintain a  magnificent establishment, their social  position being second to none in the  American colony. His brother resides  in London, taking charge of the European interests of Mr. Newhouse with a  large clerical force in suitable banking  offices. He himself visits London frequently, but most of his time is passed  in the west. A keen observer and  earnest student, and at the same time  a rapid worker, Mr. Newhouse vibrates  between Salt Lake City, Denver, London and San Francisco,   and keeps in  close touch with his vast and scattered  mining interests.  Mr. Newhouse has visited thc  Boundary and Phoenix but once, in  August, 1905, when he came here with  a party of directors of the Dominion  Copper Co. to look at the properties  of the company. How well pleased  he was with this visit and with the reports made to him by his metallurgical  advisors is shown by the extensions  being prepared for by the company in  the Boundary, as well as by the satisfactory work already done.  Mr. Newhouse is known among  those best acquainted with him as a  man with a, big heart and one who  gives every one with whom he comes  in contact a square deal, and sometimes perhaps a little more. One incident related by a resident of the Boun-  darylwill illustrate :  "I was in the office of Mr. New-  house in Salt Lake City, when a poorly  dressed washer woman entered, and  was asked by one of the clerks what  she wished. In that office it is a  standing rule that anyone who asks  personally for Mr. Newhouse, whether  he be a miner or a banker, shall be  admitted. The woman wished to see  Mr. Newhouse personally, and sent in  her name. When he heard it, Mr.  Newhouse left the magnates he was  conferring with, went into the outer  office and held the door open himself  to usher her into a private room. He  listened to her story, which was the  old one of hard luck, and recognized  in the woman a worthy acquaintance  of early days in Leadville. A loan of  $25 was desired, but when she went  out she had the check of Mr. New-  house for $100."  DEPRIVED OF THEIR DANGER.  Colds and Their After-Effects Conquered  * By-the Use of Pe-ru-na.

In these cases  the catarrh has usually found its way  Into the lungs by the gradual extension  of the disease from the throat through  the bronchial tubes. Consumption is  the natural termination of all cases of  neglected chronic catarrh. Every one  who is afflicted with  chronic catarrh is  liable to be attacked  with consumption at  any time. In Ihe first stages of the  disease Peruna is a sure cure.  NEGLECTED  COLDS PROVE  DISASTROUS.  A COUGH  IS NATURE'S  WARNING.  A. slight cough, which, without a vestige of doubt, would soon disappear  with the use of J'eruna, becomes chronic  bronchitis, which requires a persistent  use of Peruna for  some time. There are  a great many cases of consumption  every year due directly to a cold.  Peruna is for sale by all first class  drug stores at $1 per bottle.

Nothing gave him  any permanent relief until he used  Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One application of that liniment relieved the  pain and made sleep and rest possible,  and less than one bottle has effected a  permanent cure.
