BUT   BLOW IN   ANOTHER    TODAY  Low Water in the North Fork Makes the Trouble���Will Soon Have Power from Cascade,  When Four Furnaces Will be Operated.  For the last week the Granby smeller has had but one furnace in operation, due to the low water in the North  Fork of Keu'e river���toe lowest for  several years. As 'heretofore this smelter has relied entirely on the North  Fork for povvei,the dry season has  resuhed jn temporarily' cm tailing to  some extent the normal output of the  reduction works. In turn ibis has  caused a curtailment of ore shipments  from the company's Phoenix mines, so  dial for some days past 25 car ore  trains have been sent out every o'her  .lay.  Mr. Hill Will iluild.  A dispatch from Victoiia states thai  Hon. A. G. Blair, minister of railways,  who was waited upon by the Victoria  board of trade, said in response to an  address, that he had had a conversatiop  with J. J. Hill in which the Great  Northern magnate led him to believe  that he not only had an interest in the  V., V. & K., but was ready to'carry it  foiward energetically when the present  depression had passed, which Hill regarded as only temporary. He was led  to believe also that Hill would build  without asking any aid from the government.  e all-Hiiiish cable has reached  Fanning Island from liritish Columbia.  1). 11. Duncanson, formerly of Phoenix, is in charge of the cable station  milding at Fanning. He expects to  return to San Francisco about the first  of January.  jng, however, it is pleasant to notice,  as a second furnace is to be blown in  again today. The coke supply also  has not been all that was desired ol  late, but this is expected be adjusted  by the time the four furnaces are in  operation.  As soon as the power from Cascade  can be had, there will be no trouble  on this score at the Granby smelter.  When this will be, no one can state  definitely, not even the manager of the  power company himself. Several dales  have been set for starting, but. each  time it had, to be postponed. However thp work ot installation is in such  an advanced slate that the date of beginning cannot be far off.  It,was given out in iGrand .Forks a  few days ago thai Tracy AV. Holland,  manager of tin.- Kettle Valley lines, or  the "Hot Air'' load, as it has been  tetmed, has resigned,, being the result  of his trip 1.0,Toronto, whence the cash  came with which to. bubd ihe read.  ��� The hisiory of tlie Hol Air line  has  few 'paial'c's in rail way building.   Ntlni-  bers ofstineys had been'mnde between  Grand Forks and Republic, a distance  of some '43 nu'ies,  and it was lumoied  thcil the Great Northern would build a  .line....-Mr. Holland   was-manager ol  the Grand'; Forks 'Town site   Co.   then,  and with John A .M.iniy other su'Vey-.  were made, and finally, with the financial assisir.nce'of ..friends ��� in  ihe   loa.M  a net trust business'in Toronto., the'coii  tract was let for an  independent   line.  In the course of eight or   ten   month*  the line was completed -after a lashio'n;  and, the much heralded  opening was  held,  and the so-called   '-'last   spike;''  was, driven on the  12th of  last Apiil,  five tniles beyond the rai'-head.  . Just about this time the .troubles  ol  the road began in earnest.   The Great  Northern had been prosecuting  active  construction to Kepuiilic, and was pushing it as fast as possible.    As manager  of the Kelt'e VaUey lines Mr. Holland  pui all the difficulties he could  in. the  way 'oTttie"J ihr FFin Ti'tie,  and' u "must  be confessed that he exercised considerable ingenuity'in  doing   this.      The  Kettle Valley lines connected with the  C. P. R. at Grand Forks,   and  so  secured entrance to the Granby smelter,  where quite a little ore has been   ship-,  ped from Republic mines.  But when the Great Northern line  was finally completed, the passenger  and freigh't traffic on the Hot Air line  fell off 10 almost nothing, and no passenger trains have been run for some  time, and mighty few freight trains. ,  Then the eastern financiers began  investigating matters, and it is said  they turned up some interesting details  of the way things were conducted. \V.  C. Morris, attorney and assistant manager, was discharged, but to settle with  him and keep things quiet, he was paid  a', pretty sum���several thousands of dollars. Then Mr. Holland went east,  and his resignation was reported a few  days ago.  What will be done with the line has  not been announced, but it has been  built and equipped, and with the right  management it may be made to show  a balance on the right side of the  ledger.  The B. C. mine is shipping some ol  its st;. 1 i<e on-  Debts ol the W.iieiloo, Camp   11c-  Kinnev, have u<.cii paid, and the prop  My is .141111 to be .utivd) woiked.

Several offeis have been made foi  the Ruby,located near the Sunset smelter, which shipped 85 tons ot excellent  ore last year, but whose owneis got into financial difficulties.  The C. P.

Wedded   Miss   Sarah   Noble   Last Tuesday  Morning,  At seven o'clock last Tuesday moi n-  ing Donald John Malheson and  Miss Sarah Noble were quietly united in the holy bonds of rnaliimony  at ihe residence of the bride'.*,  sister, Mrs. Joshua E. Mills, on Brooklyn avenue. The bride was dressed in  a brown travelling costume, and was  attended by her younger sister, Miss  Kate Noble, while J.E. W.Thompson supported   the   groom.    Rev.  Di.  Managei Rogeis, of the Nickel Plate  mine, up Twenty   Mile cieek  in the  lower Similkameen distiict, has placed  an oidei n ilh the Jencke? .Machine Cc;.,  of Sheibrooke, Quebec, lor the  building of a 40 stani]) mill, lo tieat the liee  million gold ore of  the  mine.

This is the fii-t stamp mill to be  eretted in the Similkameen, but 11 is  believed that otheis will follow in the  not distant futuie, or as soon as transportation is piovided.  Negotiations by the Nickel Plate  owneis, the Marcus Daly estate, of  Uutte, have been nearly or quite completed lor the acquisition of a piece of  hind at ihe mouth ot Twenty Mile  icek, owned by Indians," about five  miles liom Camp Hedley pioper, where  ���he mines of the syndicate are located,  md on which the 1 eduction plant will  ie elected. It is said that th learemany  housands of tons of ore on the dumps  of the Nickel Plate already, awaiting  tieatment, although ihe management  i^ives out nothing m regard to the piop-  jily, probably loday the most import-  int mine in the Similkameen.  Smellers Making Money.  From all accounts, tne Boundary  -ieek smelteis are making money. The  Gieenwood Times is of this opinion,  and slates that the Mother Lode smelter .is shipping one car load of matte daily  to the Granby converter, each car being  valued at $4,000 approximately. It is  also said that the Mother Lode people  are clearing about $1.50 per ton on the  ore now being'mined from the glory  holes, which is of a higher grade than  that formerly taken from the shaft workings. The Mother Lode is being entirely worked on the glory hole system  now.    The Sunset smelter is also said  McRae, of  Greenwood, performed the*  to be doing the best of work, and to be>  ceremony, according to the 1 ites of the  returning good profits.  McKcnzie-Clark Wedding.  Last Saturday A. 1). McKenzei, ol  the Reco laundry, and Miss Mary A.  Clark, both residents of Phoenix foi  seveiai years, were quietly united in  marriage at Greenwood. The ceremony was performed at St. Jude's  Hall, Rev. E. P. Flewelling, of Phoenix, officiating. On ihe return of the  bridal couple to Phoenix they were  effusively greeted by many of their well  wishers.  Harry Llndley Back Again.  The Harry I.indley Co. were so well  received last week, that after playing  several nights in Greenwood, they returned this week to Phoenix. Thtns-  day evening they gave "Dad's Girl,"  and last night "Are You a Mason:"  was piesented. Tonight "A Pretty Sinner" will be given. Their previous  engagement was a success, Mr.- Lindley  having many friends of long standing  in the camp, who heard and saw him  years ago in the east, he being today  cue of the oldest men in the profession.  Is A Blessinj".  Life Insurance is a blessing to those  left behind, when a man climbs death's  shaft. Every married man should have  his life insured, so that bis family  would be secured from the chilling  blasts of poverty, when the grave makes  of him a silent non-producer. William  J. 1'wiss General Agent, Kaslo, for the  Mutual Life of Canada, will be pleased  to send you full particulars as to plans,  rates, etc. It will be to your advantage  before placing your life insurance else- GK  where.

T,he bridal couple were diiven to Grand Forks, where  they took 'the- Great Northern train, to  visit Spokane.  Mr. Matheson has been a resident  of Phoenix for three years, and is esteemed by the business community, being at piesent postmaster, justice of t! e  peace, city clerk, city assessor and city  collector, while the biide has been  living in Phoenix over two years.

MINING NOTES  Latest government estimates put the  Manitoba wheat crop at 6S,600,000  bushels���-a large inciease over that of  last yeai. This will pi.t the C. P.

COPPER SURE TO RISE,  Some persons, perhaps not conversant with the real situation in regard to  the price of copper, seem to think that  ��� the brown,metal, in sympathy with silver and lead, will remain at the present low figure for some time to come.  But those best informed in regard to  the prices of metals, and who have  made the subject a business study for  years, do not agree with this hastily  formed conclusion. Nor can it be  said that the wish is father of the  thought.  It is about time that British Col urn  bia was relieved from the domination  of the Victoiia politicians. On one  pretext or another those gentlemen  have always been uppeimost, and considered iheii own wants as paramount.  There are some other "pebbles" on the  beach, and they are of as' much, oi  more, importance as Victoria.  ' Within the year the price of copper  has tumbled from 16 or 17 cents per  pound to about 11^' cents���a straight  , reduction of 25 per cent. Nearly all authorities now agree that the first named  price was abnornal, being maintained  by large producers who had certain  end* in view. It is also a curious fact  the -same authorities also agree that  the present quotations are abnornal ly  low, mere so than the production and  consumption' varra/us. The pendulum has swung to the other extreme,"  and is about to adjust itself at the  happy medium.  It is significant that, notwithstanding the diop in copper, the leading  producers have continued working uninterruptedly. This is as true of the  I3oundary copper mines as it is of those  ��lEe��yJ)��re. Had not the drop occur/  red, knocking 25 per cent off the price  realized, undoubtedly there would be  several dividend paying mines in the  Koundary today. Nevertheless, the  managers of our great mines are continuing opeialions steadily, confident  that while profit* are small now, a little later they will be larger. Their  time of realization is coming, even if  it was temporarily postponed, and 13  or 14 cent copper will be realized.  Making Progress���The development of the province's chjef industiy,  mining, is pioceeding apace and progress is being make in every section.  In no one patticular is it to be noticed  more than in smelting.���Slocan Diill.  Corroboration of this opinion comes  {torn a source that cai 1 ies weight. Last  week \V. A. Nichols, of New York,  v'uited the Phoenix, mines and the  ���Granby smelter for the iiist time. His  company was the pioneer in the field  '<rf using eJeciricJty for refining copper,  and ihey handle the entire output of  the copper smelters of the province.  The Nichols Chemical Co., in fact,  turns out 2oo,,o��>o,ooo pounds of re-  fined copper annually, to sjay .nothing  oi by-products in gold and Ajjyer worth  <gi5,coo,ooo. Mr. Nichols' opinion,  (therefore, on the price of popper is  worth something. Here is the way he  put it tn the 6r��n4 Forks News-Ga*  ���zette man:  Twenty or thiity dollar coai stares  the people of the east in the face, which  for the multitude means no coal at all  and all themiseiy that entails on thousands. It is a great pity the recent  conference of operators and mineis  could not have been the means uf ending this fearful strike. As il is, the  ��trugg3e is stilj on, and the end cannot  be surmised with any accuiacy.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Bright For Joe���The policical sky  of the Hon.

Never use small advertisements when  you can afford to use leasonably laige  ones.  There is no dealer but that has something in stock wh.cli he can make pi eminent in an advertisement. If it be  not novel, it may be made attractive  by its reasonable price.  There is not any season when it is  not profitable to keep the* name of a  concern fresh in the public mind, as  there j? ))o tinie when people fail to look  over ihe advertising; .columns of the  newspaper".  One need not expect good eturns  from occasional advertising. An old  larrner tried "now and then" eeding  upon his favorite mare, and it was not  long before the "critter" laid down  and d/ed.  The mistake of mistakes is to wait  until one has money (lots of it} before  one begins to advertise. Without e*-*  ception, the really successful men of  tills .country began adveitising when  they had but littje money.  Sir William Mulock and the Flower fllrl.  They are telling a good story in Can  ada of Sir Wiljiarn Mulock, says an  English journal, the sedate and scholar:  ly gentleman who combines the duties  of trustee of the University, of Toronto  with those of Canadian Postmaster  General. Walking aloni; the Strand  with a distinguished London lawyer,  Sir \yilliam was inveighing fiercely  against English ignorance of Canada,  The lawyer pooh.poohgd Jijr William's assertions. "Very well," said  the Canadian Postmaster General, "we  will ask the next three people we meet  if they have ever  heard   of   Canada."  i  I'he tijree they met were all London  ers. The l-irsi answered '.'No." The  second, an old man, said he had Ijeen  around London very near to seventy  years, and he knew 'twas nowhere near  the Strand. In his most miiable manner Sir William then accosted a Cockney flower-girl. She looked as though  she might haye been ,tt a Hoard School,  so the Canadian Ajiinister altered his  question,' and asked hei if she was familiar with Ottawa. "Familiar with  who?'-' she replied.

Nichols, piesident of the  Nichols Chemical Co,, New York, paid  his first visit to the Boundary last week.  The visitor is one of New York's uiulti  millionaires, and his name is one to conjure with in, the financial and metallurgical worlds. He founded the refinery'with which.his name is identified.  His vast plant, located in a 'suburb, of  Manhattan, is the largest of its kind in  existence. Its annual output comprises  two hundred million pounds of refined  copper, and about sixteen million  dollais in refined gold and silver annually. This.represents a very large  proportion'of the world's annual copper production.     .  A: his. works, in addition to the  smelting of ores, blister copper, copper  and other mattes containing the precious metals are refined by the electrolytic process. No consignments are  treated unless they contain gold and  silver values. The basis of the electro  lytic method is the use of eleciriciiy in  not only refining the copper but in separating therefrom its other metallic  contents, Before the discovery of this  process no means were available for  saving these valuable by-products.  "My attention," said he in Grand  Foiks, "has been directed to Biitish  Columbia for a number of years past  owing to the rapid increase of its mineral production. As the Nichols Chemical Co. practically' refines the matte  from every smelter in the province, and  as I had heard so much respecting your,  vast ore bodies, I recently concluded  that it was about time for me to come  west in order to size up the situation  for myself.  Up*lo*dalepess of Granby.  ."The trip has proved'a pei feet  revelation.     Biitish Columbia is so new,  that my fjrst b,ig surprise was in regard  to the wonderful way  tl^e  very   latest  mining inventions are being applied to  'o.al needs and conditions, and it is also  lemarkable that one should come so far  tvest to see'the art of  smelting  so far  advanced.   I have examined   a  good  many smelters in the e.st and west at  various periods, bin have no hesitation  in'stating that the Granby plant is the  most modem I ever saw.      Perhaps I  <-an convey my meaning better by  using another expression:   I mean its up-  to-dateness.    The Granby   smelter  is  away ahead of most of the   smelters I  have seen as regards the   prime   attributes of economy and management,   I  did not visit the   other  Boundary, reduction  works,   but   understand they  are also of the most modern character.  (Ttraversed a considerable portion of  the three miles of underground  workings in the Granby mines at   Phoenix.  While not unprepared for suprises, the  magnitude of the ore bodies  far  surpassed my expectations.   They are the  largest ore bodies I ever inspected, and  I have had occasion   to   y.isit  n   gifat  m,aiiy mjiies, including my own in Mexi**  go.    ] shall leave to others the task of  estimating the millions of tons of ore  in sight or blocked out.     The surface  ore quarrying operations and the acre  tracts of ore underground   are   sights  that are calculated to arouse enthusiasm  even among the most   conservative  ol  mining  men.      The  showing of the  Granby group I understand is  almost  duplicated in' other Hoiind^ry camps.  Larje Copper Producer.  I have gathered enough infoi matron  AH tip's trip, to venture   the prediction  that this section is destined   to  be a  very large copper producer in the near  future.  Low Orade Mines Popular.  "Of course the Boundary, even with  its present annual output of from fif  teen to twenty million pounds of cop  per, is only in its infancy. Nature lifts  been lavish with ber mineral wealth.  The grade is law, and skilful attention  alone can treat theore profitably. 'Ihe  compensating factors are the si?.e and  uniformity of the ore bodies, their self-  fluxing character, and last but not  east, the fact that no sopiting' is re*-  fiuiied.,  ��� "After all, investors nowadays prefer the low grade propositions because  the element of permanence is .assumed,  and large profits accrue from the vast  oirpiit, even though the net output per  ton may be small. Some of the Lake  Superior copper mines are of very low-  grade, and, unlike the Boundary mines,  have not got the gold and silver values  to. fall back upon.;. Of course, the  method of treatment in''vogue in Mich-  gan is a good deal cheaper than in  British Columbia. There the ore is  free milling and jthe concentrates are  smelted."-' ' .; .  .   Mr. Nichols went on to!'observe that'  tie   men   employed  in  the   Phoenix  mines were, collectively speakings the  most intelligent body of miners he had  ever come in contact with.    He considered  u  Canadian  miner could accomplish in one day the equivalent of  the labor of two Mexican miners. ���The  subject suggested   other  comparisons.  Mr, Nichols said the people of Biitish  Columbia impressed him.as being more  active and wide awake than their countrymen in the eastern provinces'!,;'.'.  :������    Copper Will Go Higher,  Mr. Nicliols' is not at all   pessimistic  about   the  future  of. copper.     "The  metal," he said, in reply to a question,  "has been dealt with  a  little harshly,  and the drop in prides  has  frightened  timid people  to  death.    Copper consumption is bound to  increase, and I  look to see it go to 12 or 13 cents and  possibly to 14 cents per pound.' Influences  not  altogether connected  with  stockjobbing are keeping it down.    If  the natural law of supply and demand  were   not  interfered   with,   the! price  would advance. V'  "Our finn, which I- organized, was  one ol the lirst in the field. By the  application of electricity a purer quality of copper is produced than was possible formerly. In addition the'gotd  and silver values in the copper  matte are saved, but under the old  methods all these by-products..were  lost. The blister copper shipped us  ��� >y the Granby company was refined at  ihe minimum tariff because it "is free  Iroin antimony, arsenic and bismuth.  These foreign substances are frequently  encountered in the matte from o'ther  countries. H'e draw our raw material  from Australia, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Mexico, Colorado and  Montana.  "British Colombia," added Mr.  Nichols in conclusion, ''is all right. It  has a great future, but the people  should not get excited and overdo  things. Your timber wealth also impresses me very favorably. If we had  it down east it would be as valuable as  your mineral resources."  Do you want to make a dollar?
