The installation of machinery in
Granby's new < machine shop has
been completed apd the big wheels
were set in motion on Tuesday last
and represents the £ne$t, ^njjne
machinery plant in the country.
The building is an imposing fire
proof structure, built of bricjc and
stone foundation , with cprrug-ated
iron covering. It is conveniently
located and has many features in its
interior design.
Only the finest and most up-to-
date machinery vhas Jbeen ;instaHed,':
the equipment including a five-focjtr
radial drill press, a huge planer, a
lathe, pipjs machines, large hydraulic
press, metal shears and punch, together with other •smaller- detail
machinery. Near, the machine.shops
is the new par .repair building and
another of Granby's specially designed steel sharpeners is being
made.   ■ ,;^ ■ •■
A new tunnel is being driven fry
the Granby company for, tlie purpose of supplying a new outlet to
the big proiducer, and whidh will replace as a shipper the No. 3 tunnel,
the shipping facilities of which were
recently destroyed by fire.
About seventy feet of open work
has already been done... p.n tlie new;
tunnel, but it ; will .be rus;he,d .with
the intention of haying it equipped
as a shipping outlet by Jan. 1 next.

The Dominion census/which'will  be   taken   next   summer,   probably  some time in  June, will   show   that  British Columbia has at  least 300,-  000   people.      The   census^ 1901  showed : B.C.'s   population    to    be  190;0Q0.     British    Columbia   is   at  present represented in the Dominion  House of Commons by seven: members and the   census   of  next  year;  will, according to simple  arithmetic  ���and the  less   simple   British   North  America   Act,    give    B. C.    twelve  members in the Federal house.  The B.N.A. Act made Quebec the  pivotal province and says: '  ���1*. "Quebec shall always have 65  members.  2. There shall be assigned! to  each of the other Provinces such a  number of members as will bear the  same proportion to the number of  its population (ascertained by census) as the number of sixty-five  bears to the number of the population of Quebec.  j 3.' The number of members in the  Ho%se of Commons may be increased by parliament, provided the  proportionate representation of the  provinces is not disurbed thereby.  The population of Quebec in 1910  was 1,625,000. Quebec then has  one'member for each^tweftty-five  thousand people. British Columbia  has' 300,000 people. Therefore  British Columbia has twelve members.-' '.'

MisJ  Rose Ainsworth, the leading lady,  was back in. the. caste after being  out for nearly a week on account pf  illness. No one in front would ever  have known that she was ill in view  of tlie excellent way in which shfe  handled her lines. She has a vgry  long part and worked with snap a^d  vim at all times. She is one of the  cleverest actresses that has been  seen at the Empire for sometime.  While the leading characters of the  company are exceptionally strong,  the remainder of the caste is well  balanced, interest thus centreing on  every individual member. "A Bachelor's Honeymoon" is one of the  ,strongest attractions that has visited,  the. Empire, this season, particularly  from the standpoint of those who  like good clean comedy and lots of it.
