Near Eholt  Sunday Morning  WE ARE NOT SELLING OUT  YOUR  CREDIT IS  GOOD  MORRIN, THOMPSON & CO.  HEATING  As a result of a derailment of a light  engine between Phoenix and Eholt on  the C.P.R. at 7 o'clock Sunday morn  ing, Leo McAstocker, engineer, is  dead and George Beattie, fireman, is  seriously injured. The scene of the  accident was the steep down grade  from Phoenix towards Eholt, about a  mile south of the latter town, where  the track curves sharply around the  mountain and there is a steep descent  of about 200 feet.  The engine, No. 1385, had already  assisted two trains up the hill and was  returning down the hill light, when at  the curve it jumped the rails and was  ditched, landing in a damaged condition over 200 feet from the point of  departure. Both McAstocker and  Beattie jumped, the former landing  about 40 feet down the declivity and  the latter about 150 feet down. Both  were stunned, McAstocker receiving  a severe concussion of the brain, besides scalp wounds and Beattie receiving a slight fracture of the skull and a  double fracture of the left ankle.  A rancher of the neighborhood observed a cloud of steam in the valley  and not being able to account for it,  made an investigation, with the result  that he discovered the unconsious men  and the ditched engine. He immediately notified Eholt, and a wrecking  train took the men to Greenwood  where they were placed in the hospital.  C. J. McAstocker of Phoenix and  Thos. McAstocker ofFarron, brothers,  hurried to the scene. At 3 o'clock in  the afternoon a special left Nelson  carrying F. Walker, acting superintendent ��� R. A. Pyne, master mechanic,  and Misses Irene and Blanche McAstocker, sisters of Leo, Miss, Irene  being a trained nurse. Jas. McAs-,  tpeker of Nelson, the injured engineer's- father,": followed,Monday.- --"-- ~r~  Four doctors were in attendance on  the injured man and from the first it  was realized that McAstocker's condition was very serious. At one period  of Monday evening it was proposed to  hold an operation, but he was considered too weak to undergo it. He  died at 9.30 p.m, interment taking  place in Nelson on Thursday.  Beattie's injuries were much less  serious and he is now considered out  of danger, though he may lose a toot.  His home is at Blue Sea, N.S.  McAstocker's age was 23 years and  he only recently took charge of an  engine. Eight months ago he married  Miss Vina Luse of Eholt and lately  the young couple resided at Grand  Forks, out of which he ran his engine.  The engine is not damaged beyond  repair, but it promises to be a problem  to recover it from its present position.  To hoist it up the mountain side, it is  said, would be altogether impractable  and it is reported that a spur will be  built to it from the main line, which is  not far distant.  The bright  side of the deplorable  j accident was the manner in  which the  I C.P.R. officials  rendered  aid,  as has  already been detailed.   A few minutes  after receiving word of the accident  Miss Irene McAstocker of Nelson introduced herself to acting superintendent Walker in that city and expressed  a desire to nurse her brother. This  was at 3 o'clock and at 3.15 the special  was drawing out. The train consisted  of engine No. 1310, a baggage car and  the superintendent's private car. Conductor Mouat was in charge of the  special and engineer McDougall did  not spare speed,' bringing the party  into Greenwood at 8 o'clock that  evening.   BRITISH COLUMBIA  AND NEW DOMINION  Former  Negotiating  to   Bay  Ores of Latter Outright  CANDIDATES  IN THE FIELD  Party Representatives  for the Legislature  Conservatives  Have   Selected  33 and Liberals 24  At the present- timeYthe three, furnaces at the British Columbia Copper  company's smelter are treating close to  2000  tons  of ore a  day, and their  capacity is soon to be increased to between   2,400   and   2,600   tons.    By  spring the company expect to  have* a  fourth furnace  completed, which will  be used as a reserve and will insure a  constant capacity of about 2,500 tons.  A Boiton despatch says:    Newman  Erb and F. L. Sommer, president and  vice-president respectively of the British  Columbia Copper company, have been  elected to the directorate of the New  Dominion   Copper company  and   as  Adolph Lewisohn is on  the  board of  the former company,it is  natural to  believe that  the  managements  of the  two companies will be closely identified  in the future if  they  are hot  indeed  consolidated.    Many of the  claims of  the two companies are contiguous, and  as the ore is all low-grade and has to  be treated in large quantities to pay,  there would  be  greater  economy  of  production  if   they   were   developed  under the same management.  The New Dominion Copper company holds valuable properties, which  failed to pay under its old management because its smelter could not  be operated economically. The new  management is negotiating a contract  with J. E. McAllister, the general  manager of the British Coiumbia Copper company, by which the latter company will buy outright the ore of the  New Dominion company. By this  agreement the neV company .will be  insured better profits than it could  obtain by smelting its own ore.  Newman Erb says that with the increased amount of \qre that will: he  handled bj-tiic-Biit'iK Columbia company under this agreement copper will  be produced at less tnan nine cents a  pound  , The formal nomination of candidates for political honors in the forthcoming provincial elections takes place  next Thursday, by which time, it is  probable, every constituency will be  representated by the Liberal and Con-  servative parties, with  about a dozen  Craabrook Herald Ckaaiea Haads  The news that F. E. Simpson, the  "Old Man" of the Crinbrook Herald,  has sold his paper and will retire from  the journalistic field will be a matter  of general regret to every person in the  Kootenays. For a decade or more he  has published the Hetald and has won  for it a prestige second to no other  weekly in Western Canada, while as a  sane advocate of the possibilities of the  district the "Old Man "has wielded a  conspicuous force in the upbuilding of  Cranbrook city and the Kootenays.  Mr. Simpson will go south to recuperate in health, and on his return will go  into the real estate business in the  "banana belt" at Cranbrook, and his  many friends will join in wishing him  every success in his new venture. A  farewell banquet will be extended to  him by the citizens of Cranbrook  The Herald has been purchased by T.  M. Roberts, who, it is stated, repre  sents a syndicate.

CASSELS PERCIVAL  ENTERTAINERS  Dellgh-iul Initial  Attraction ot tbe Star Eo  tertainmeot Coarse  The attractiveness of the Star entertainment course lies largely in the  noveltv of the various programs offered.  The Cassels-Percival entertainers were  organized to meK the persistent demand for a thoroughly refined and  artistic entertainment, possessing all  the best features of high class concert  and in addition, much greater variety  and interest.  Miss Caroline Cassels has been for  years the most popular singer on the  Pacific coast. She possesses a glorious  contralto voice, rich, full and sympathetic. Her songs appeal to every ear  while her pleasing appearance delights  the eye.  Percival, the wizard, is one of the  most accomplished and versatile enter  tainers on the concert stage. His marvelous performance of magic, mirth  and mystery has delighted countless  people and is the most elaborate and  wonderful presentation o, slight-of-hand  and illusions ever seen outside the  large cities of the east. His program  fairly, bristles with laughable and-incomprehensible tricks, always keeping  the,idea of refined humor uppermost.

GRANBY SMELTER'S  ������> TONNAGE INCREASE  Big Output of the Mines for  October  Granby's seven furnaces smelted  26,702 tons during the past week,  showing an increase of nearly a thousand tons over that of the previous  week, which is another new record for  the Boundary's big reduction works.  The tonnage treated represents approximately 550 tons of ore treated by  each furnace every 24 hours during the  seven days.  For the year to date the smelter  has treated 841,742 tons of ore, which  compares with 850,604 during the  same period last year. It is expected  that the total tonnage for 1909 will  show a considerable increase over that  of 1908.  : During the month of October  Granby smelter received 107,932 tons  tons of ore for treatment. Of this  amount Granby mines at Phoeuix  shipped 105,458 tons, which, with the  exception of March, 1908, is the  largest monthly output of the mines.  The receipts of foreign ore amounted  to 2,474 tons as follows:  Black Tail, Republic camp... 48  Ben Hur  .286  Lone Pine  128  San Poil .  65,  Quilp....................   58  Balcher 519  Snowstorm, Coeir d'Alenes 1,248  Arlington, Slocan district...Y 123  Candidate   ^   Gtia^  Forks Riding   f  Selected >>. at    Convention^ ^  "   Liberals ori Monday'^  CONSTRUCTION OF  RAILWAY STARTED  75  Men Already at  Work-r-  300 More Required  ; j; B.

Spaslal   Wltb, Postal Matter Croaaad; Half a  Continent at Mile a Minute  ' The derailment of transcontinental  train No. 97, on the C.P.R., at White  River, resulted in what was probably  the fastest time ever made oyer the  western lines to the Pacific coast. It  was all because of the mail. No. 97  was carrying the British and Canadian  mail and' passengers Tor the Empress  of India, end it simply had to reach  there by Wednesday. Within a very  short time after the wreck a special  train was made, up, and it sped against  records across the western part of the  continent in time to catch the boat.  The train came over the double track  ing at Winnipeg at a speed close to  the minute mark, and departed, leaving  in its trail a whirl'. of dust and flying  paper. It is estimated that the average  speed to the coast was 60 miles an hour.  The distance is slightly over 1482 miles1'  This is regarded as a triumph of railroading, and a tribute to the magnifi  cent roadbed of Canada's great trans  continental. . - ^  ��� The train reached its destination at  noon Wednesday and caught the boat,  vrhich was a little delayed through  other causes." The fastest ,time was  made over the 180" mile division from  Medicine Hat to Calgary. This was  covered in 180 minutes, which included  stops for water.  At many places along the line the  speed was increased to over 70 miles  per hour. Near Gtenfell it .cpvered  9 miles,in 7 minutes; at Qu'Appe'lle it  made 15 miles in 12 minutes, and. j he  line between McLean and Regin&,'24  miles; was 21 minutes.

An abundance of  timber to develop a great mine. The  company owns the water power in  Willow creek and its west fork, which  is partially developed. The water is  capable of developing about 100 horsepower in low water (three months per  year), and 250 horsepower, maximum,-  for about nine months per year.    ,  This group nf claims has the strongest outcrop of cupjier-bearini* ore in the  disttict. By siri|*i*ii*(; and excavating  an opening some 30x45 feet, with a'  face 1 5 feet high, we sacked for shipment 48,000 pounds of 3 per cent  copper and 4 ounces ..in silver to the  ton. All ���e(xpjerts agree that this is a  yery remarkaWe showing.  ; Tunnel No. i has been driven 290  feet, giving a vertical depth of 125  feet. The last 130 feet: has been in  ore ranging from 1 to 50 per cent copper, with small values in both silver  and gold.  * In this tunnel there is about 70 feet  of crosscuttina.at three different points.  After driving 90 feet on the ore we  crosscut, including the width of the  tunnel, about 47 feet and the. hanging  .wall has not been reached.  ! Tunnel No.. 2 has been driven 940  feet, where indications point to being  yery near the ore shoot. In fact we  may enter it at any time. This level  will give us a vertical depth of 500  feet when the face shall ..have been  idriven rooo feet from the portal. On  this level we have done . 335 feet of  jcrosscutting, which located the two  ledges���designated as the copper or  south ledge, and the galena or north  ledge. On the galena ledge we have  ^rifted 65 feet, getting some ore heavily  interspersed wiih galena and at times  almost solid iron.  [ Three.years ago in taking over this  'group of claims, I had them surveyed  in order to be sure that the title was  correct. The survey showed the ground  illy staked and made it necessary to relocate nine of the 11 claims, which  was done under the supervision - of  United States Mineral Surveyor for  Idaho and Montana, Mr. Frederick V.  Phinney of Wallace, Idaho. After the  survey and relocations were completed,  in which the original owner, Mr. James  Carney, participated,' the 'group of 10  claims was deeded to J. L. Martin.  The eleventh claim was deeded to J.  L. Martin hy Mr. W. H. Harris, the  original locator. Subsequently the entire group of 11 claims were deeded  by J. L. Maitin to the, Carney Copper  Company, Limited. The title there-  fore can not be successfully disputed  by any claimant at any time. However, the management will apply for  and secure U. S. patents for each claim  as soon as practical. The relocations  of these nine claims cost more than  $1000. The development of the Carney group to date has cost about $25,-  ooo.' Substantial and comfortable  cook and bunk houses were built and  equipped at a cost of $700. The mine  is equipped with everything necessary  to develop the property by hand.  Cars, track, steel, blacksmith shop and  outfit and a No. 7 water driven fan.  The proposition of installing a com  pressor plant has been deferred until  spring, owing to the fact that it could  not be shipped before the heavy snows  would be upon us. As soon as spring  is open the plant will be put in, the  water power applied, a dynamo in  stalled to light the mine and buildings  and a bucket tram built for cheap and  economical handling of the ore. Ship  ping will be postponed until the equipment is ready.  A contract was let for 400 feet of  drifting and crosscutting on September  20. This development was divided as  follows : too feet in No. 1 tunnel and  200 feet in No. 2 tunnel. It will require 1500 feet of tram to load our  ore on the Northern Pacific railway.  Mr. Phinney, our engineer, has  been surveying mining properties for  some nine or ten years and knows  every foot of the Coeur d'Alenes.  Under date of September 20, he writes  me, among many' other important  matters regarding the Carney : (Tunnel No. 3); "As yet this tunnel has  not encountered the ore; but the  ���-round in the face is becoming miner-  ilized and you may encounter ore  here at any tims." (Tunnel No. 1).'  "'l'he present face of this tunnel has  a vertical depth of 120 feet, and  another 100 feet of drift will give you  a depth of from 160 tb 175 feet. I  feel very sure that at this point you  will open up a large body of ore." "As  :t whole, I consider it one of the most  promising prospects: in the Coeur d'  Alenes, and with the continuation of  the able and efficient management that  has characterized it in the past, I see  no reason why it should not be on the  producing list before many months."  The Carney Copper was put on the  market in December, 1906, at 25 cents  per share. Since that date more than  $20,000 has been judiciously expended  in its development with the result that  we now have a large and valuable ore  body in which there is much shippinp  ore. Wc have secured a water right  worth $25,000 and our development  has reached a point where any round  of holes may break into ore on the  500-level which would make thestock  very valuable. It will be a great mistake for anyone to offer his stock at  this time. My advice is, hold stock  for. 50 cents per share unless you are  forced to sell by circumstances'outside  your control.  '        Very truly yours,  ' J. YL. 'Martin, ...  r President and Manager.

It has  assumed the role of a legitimate business enterprise, on as honorable footing  as manufacturing, transportati* n, merchandising ( or b.-nSlcirig.- It may le  made as safe as any 0/ these pursuits,  and has the advantage of much larger  profit-. :At the present time mining  rests upon scientific pi inciples. There  is now small excuse for failure.  What makes amine?    The mining  engineer, who has practical expenenci  and   scientific phases  of the minerxl  industry, will answer by saying  that  i'  is a land property from the bowels of  which valuable  mineral' may be extracted profitably and in large quantities.    So,   also,  contrary   to popular  opinion, an .ore is..a mineral deposit  which on a mercantile scale, may be  worked with profit.    Such   is the definition which the legitimate business of  mining today recognizes the world over.  A mining proposition passes through a  number of distinct stages, or transformations,  before  such   position  is  attained.    Until it does reach this  position its stocks are not proper field   in  which the  general  public, or persons  unacquainted with the mining industry  should be invited or advised lo invest.  With this definition the  picturesque'  prospector of days  now gone by does  hot make of'his 16'nely claim a   mine  by simply calling it such.    The mountaineer, with'his pick and'"shovel, has  only hope strong in  his  breast.    The  sturdy little band that is doing development work is yet along way off from  a mine. " It is by unhatched propositions of this kind  that the wily pro-  motor endeavors to entrap the credulous.    Not one in a thousand of these  schemes develops into a real mine.
