A short time since complaint was
made will) the Dominion authorities
at Ottawa in regard to the alleged contravention of the Alien -Labor. Act in
the Boundary, country, and in pursuance with this complaint; Hon. Mr.
Fitzpatrick, Minister of Justice, instructed L.V. Eckstein, of Grand
Forks to take evidence in regard to the
so-called infraction. Last week Mr.
Eckstein arranged to hold -sittings at
Greenwood, Grand Forks and Phoenix.
It was finally found that a, session
was unnecessary at Greenwood; but
Mr. Eckstein obtained a statement
from the sepre|ary of t|}g Mj!l*?F'5 Union there that so far as he knew there
had been no such contravention of
ihe act in question in the Boundary,
that there was no complaint from the
laboring men or miners in that district, and that the men arid 'the'.,com-
patiies had always gotten along without
trouble of any kind.   ■:  i- •?'  ':
In pursuance   with   the   published
np'ice, Mr. Eckstein wai>. in this city
yesterday, for the purpose qf holding
the proposed investigation hero,   Hardy hall was secured, and the tinSe, set
for 10 a. m.   Mr. Eckstein, was;, there
on time,(and  waited  iS'loneliness for
rraffe a" while;" but not a soiif' turned up
to give evidence either for or against
in fact, his only visitor was the Pioneer
man.    As a result, Mr. Eckstein took
no.evidence here, the camp  in   which
the largest number of   laboring   men
are employed  of any   in   the   entire
Uoundary country.    He has a hearing
set for'Grand Forks for next Monday.
The complaint sent   to  Ottawa sets
forth that a largfj number of men were

Townslte Sale Of Coleman.
This week the lots in the new town-
site of Coleman, Alberta, were placed
on the market. This is the town where
the coal mines of the International Coal and Coke Co. are
located, and this is the company in
which prominent shareholders of the
Granby Co. are interested. As the
company has an assured market for all
coal it can mine or manufacture into
coke, the town is sure to crow to be a
place of no sirwill importance in the
near future. Next summer the mines
there are expepted to piitput 2,000
tons of coal daily, meaning a large payroll for (he place.
It is said that the change in the
railway time table of tbe C. P. R. will
take effect in a few weeks.
As planned by Superintendent Williams, the Granby Co. began work this
week on Np. 4 tunnel,.in accordance
with the comprenhensive arrangement
for the further- development of l«o
company's, large mines, in this camp.
This tunnel will be driven on an
incline of about five per cent.,in order
to reach the 300 foot level of No. 2
shaft of the company's Old Ironsides
mine (not the 200 foot level, as inadvertently stated las,t week). This, of
course, is. (on Steep ft gWde fw the ore-
cars to he operated l>y 'he meo, even
temporarily, fqr the most advantageous

installed far the MSI? of the miners.
When the tu.nne-1 is completed and ready
for operation it is the intention to operate tho ore cars by use of electricity or
steuni—it has not been "fully decided
yet which, Eventually the tunnel
will be double tracked.
Preliminary work for the driving of
the tunnel has been on all this week but
it will be several days before a double
shift of miners can-be set at work here.
The opening will be just below the
Presbyterian church, and the waste will
be dumped on the flat in order to
build up the grade for the surface tramway,-which .will in time convey the. ore
to the. liirge, ore bjfls w^ iu;e to, be
built somewhere d-Qwn, ojft Ilc;n*.iuion

laid this week over the surface from
the No. ^tunnel to the-hew workings,
to suppfyjur pow'er for tfiedrills and for
the hoist. Tie: flat below the Pioneer
office from now1 on will he one of the
busiest parts of this mining-camp.
Next Monday, according to arrangements, the Providence Mining Company will pay a dividend, amounting
to two cents per share. This is the
second dividend paid so far by this
company, the first having been distributed some three months ago. The
Providence Mining ^Company, has a
capital of $200,006 in $5 shares, of
which about three-quarters has been
issued. So far $10,000 has been disbursed in dividends.
At the annual meeting of the company,'recently held, the reports, qf the
officers showed that the mine had
made an excellent showing for the
year ending September 30, 1903. In
that tim? 543.3 tons of ore were
mined, and marketed, having a net
value of $54,315.24. The cost oj
mining, etc., was $23,122.40, leaving
a net profit of $31,191.84.
The board of directors elected for
the coming year was as follows: President, Mark F. Madden, of Chicago;
vice-president and manager, Duncan
Mcintosh, of Green wood* secretary-
treasurer, William M. Law, of Greenwood' other directors, H. J. Fitzgerald
and Franklin Rudolph, of Chicago; J.
A. Russell and J. J. Caulfield, of
Greenwood; J. H. Peet, of Spokane,
and W.:S. Macy, of Phoenix.    ,;      : ,
The Providence mine is the banner
high grade mine of the Boundary, and
was a profitable property years ago,
when the ore was freight.ed *o Marcus,
to reach tlie raihya^', and  thence sent
to the Everett smelter,    gyt with the
fall of silver it lay idle for many years.-l and each office was being visited.
Flocks of drummers are now visiting

TWO MORE
STEAMSHOVELS
To Be Installed at Once at the
Granby Mines.
ONE IS DUE TO ARRIVE ANY DAY
Third Machine Will Be Shipped Next Month
—Both Larger Than the Shovel Now
In Uae.
As an immediate result of the successful operation of the Thew steam
shovel in the immense ore quarries of
the Granby mines   for   the   last few
it w^s taken hold af a ym or two
since by William Fowler, who showed
the fine ore that it really contains, and
later it was taken over and purchased:
outright by the gentlemen  composing
the present egmpany that owns and is
successfully operating the claim. The
story of the Providence is an interesting one, showing as it does that while
the low grade mines are the chief features of the Boundary, there are high
grade mines that a.re_ WQUnd 10 make
their mark in the mhvng war-Id,
A go9,d deal of credit is due to the
manager, Duncan Mcintosh, who has
had . experience in mining, and has
been successful in evolving this property into the best one of its kind \t\ the
Boundary. The. Q«tlftoHof the Providence is, sa.i.d \0 be evon brighter than
before, and that is saying a good deal.
It is the first dividend payer in the
Boundary, and has been the means of
encouraging the owners of other high
grade prospects to develop their claims,
so.me o,( which are exceedingly promising.
Manage--- Mcintosh in his report to
the o«miHu*y at the annual meeting
held October i si, says that the cost ol
mining seems high, yot it is not, when
it is remembered that the ore bodies
are small, averaging six inches wide.
The formation being hard and block)*
makes it necessary to take out about
three feet of waste ground. Me estimates that on a most conservative
basis there are 750 tons of ore in sight,
averaging $100. He has advised that
a dividend or so be passed in order
to accumulate a larger surplus. A
trial of either electric or air drills is
recommended, not because work with
power will be cheaper than by hand,
but because of the greater speed that
can be made.
Reports from the mine tell of the
discovery of. a pa.ra.llel lead in the
Providence 13 inc-he1" wide, with eight
inches of solid high grade ore. The
strike was made at a depth of 175
feet,

Grand Forks enjoys one unique distinction, namely, that it has the greatest
number of lawyers of any place in
British Columbia, in proportion to its
sue.    There are ten of them all told.
There are rumors around town of
construction to commence shortly on
the V., V. & E. branch of the Great
Northern from Grand Forks to Phoenix.
As yet, however, there has been nothing
to confirm them.
"A Millionaire Tramp" was in town
last Thursday, and held forth at Miner's Union hall that evening. The
show is said to have been up to the average that comes through the Boundary,
and had a good house.
The Grand Forks Bar association
has forwarded resolutions to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the Minister of Justice
asking that a new supreme court judge
be appointed, to reside permanently in
the Kootenay.
Tho next court of revision will
be held in Grand Forks on Mon
day, November 2nd. The provincial list will be used in the
next Dominion election. No collector of votes will have power to add
names on the list after the coming
court of revision, until the next one,
which will be held on the first Monday
in May, 1904.
months, two morei shovels' will shortly
be placed in commission at these
properties^ and both of them will ...be-
larger and heavier than the shovel now
in daily use. ,
One of the new machines has been
ordered from the makers of the one in
use, the Automatic Shovel Co., of
Lorain, Ohio, and is expected to arrive here some time next month. The
present shovel handles with its dipper
three-quarters of a cubic yard of ore or
material at once, and the new machine
will handle about a yard in the same
time. The new. shovel will have a
capacity of handling in the neighborhood of 1,500 tons'of; ore daily.
Any day now the other steam
shovel is expected to arrive here and
be set at work. It is a Marion shovel,
and is being secured from the C. P.
R. as an experiment, to'see if it can be-
made to do the work required of it in
a mining way. The railway company-
has been using it at the gravel pits at
Castlegar. This shovel'will be placed
in the No. 2 ore pit, and rails are now
being laid at that point for its accommodation. '■" ■-';■- ""■■■'_
It is the intention of Superintendent
Williams.to use a steam shovel for
handling ore underground in the large
stopes of the Granby mines as soon as
he can get it arranged, and can secure •
a machine exactly suitable for the purpose.
Last Thursday Capt. R. Thew, vice-
president of the Automatic Shovel Co.,
accompanied by his consulting engineer, was in camp, looking over . the
situation. He had just come from
Seattle where two of his company's
«team shovels were recently installed
by the Great Northern railway, for
use in the two mile tunnel under that
city, which is now being driven.
Talk Of Building Up The North Fork.
It is said that the Kettle Valley
Lines—locally known as the Hot Air—
is seriously considering'building up the
North Fork of the Kettle river, some
50 miles, providing a subsidy for so doing can be obtained from the provincial
government, supplementing that from
the Dominion government. The subsidy from the Dominion government
is as follows: $3,200 per mile when
thecost of construction is up to $15,000
per mile, and 50 per cent of the surplus cost, provided that the total subsidy sliall not exceed $6,400 per mile.
The country tapped will undoubtedly
yield a profitable tonnage to the road
when it is constructed.

If any person is foolish  enough to be carried away by the excitement of the contest to say bitter  things, he should make haste to apologize now that the campaign is ended.  If he can't do that he never should  mix up in the campaign.���Cranbrook  Herald.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  The good advertiser is ever ambitious  to do better advertising.  If you can't advertise much, advertise as much as you can.  Nearly eVery business man thinks  about his advertising, but sometimes he  don't think' quick enough.  In knitting a pair of socks it takes  all the stitches to count for anything���  it's the same way with advertising���it's  all the ads together that count.  Never give up as long as there is a  spark of life left in your business.  Good advertising and hard work will  fan the tiniest spark to* a flame.  ���������***���������*'  ' Russia and Japan seem to be still  making goo-goo eyes at each other,  but if the tiling keeps up long enough  someone is likely to get hurt, to say  nothing of the bone���China���being  divided...'   .-  However it was done, the prediction  that Uncle'Samuel would come out  ���ahead in the decision of the Alaskan  Boundary Commission, has been ful  filled, and Canada has received the  small end.  I)avid Nation, the husband of the  notorious Carrie, has at last gone to  his great reward, and will no longer be  troubled by the hatchet wedding proclivities of his better half. Most men  would have quit before David did.  ' Reductions in the working force at  the government house have been decided on, for the sake of economy. It  would seem that the work could be as  well done at much less expense. This  is one to the credit of Mr. McBride.  , By the calling of a Conservative  convention for the 29th at Kamloops,  it would seem that there is some show  ���still of there being Dominion elections  some time in the near future.  When it comes to picking out  a - candidate, the lower end of the  constituency will have to receive more  consideration than it has in the past.  For ye.trs we have been bearing oi  the wonderful industrial progress of  the Soo, and with its hundred millions  of investment, it was supposed to be  on a firm foundation. The crash came,  however, and now an English firm  controls the vast enterprises, lt is to  be hoped that they will have better  fortune than Mr. Clergue had.  A good deal was made of the $15  per ton lead bonus granted bv the  Dominion government, but we cannot  sec that it has been of any tremendous  benefit so far to the lead miners. The  St. Eugene, one of the greatest, if not  the greatest, of Kootenay's lead mines.  will not start at all for the present, as  .the railways and smelters are trying to  get the benefit of the bonus by raising  the rates.  Sir William Mulock ha-> announced  in the house that the postoftice department closed the year with a Surplus-of  $292,702 over all expenses, including  the Yukon. This was the first time in  the history of the department that  this had been done, and yet it still re-  ' quires two days, either way, for the  transmission of mail  matter  between  , Phoenix and Greenwood, a distance of  five miles. Here is a chance for Mr.  Mulock to get rid of some of- his sur-  1 plusih a good cause,  i  { B. C MINING  ���  Rossland's September, payroll was  $86,300.  ~   In the Slocan,the Fisher "Maiden is  perparing to ship heavily this winter.  During September the Monitor at  Three Forks shipped 140 ton.-, of 01 e.  The Comstock, owned by W. Hunter, has three cars of ore ready to  ship.  Work has been resumed at the Alice  mine, near Creston, with 15 men. It-  is a galena proposition and has been  idle.for some two years.  The Eva mill in the Lardeau was  started on Monday of last week; some  of the machinery broke after a three  hour run and the plant had to be  closed for repairs.  The first shipment of about 300  ounces of. gold which was .995'fine,  was made from Trail to the United  States assay office at Seattle, and a second shipment of about 700 ounces of  gold was made Friday, to the same  place.  Shipments for Rossland last week  were: Le Roi, 5,160 tons; Centre Star  1,501 tons; War Eagle, 1,050 tons; Le>  Roi No. 2, 48010ns; Jumbo, i25;Spit-  */.ee 60 tons; I. X. L. (milled), 200 tons.  Total for week, 8,576 tons; year to date.  3*3.354 tons.  I  It is noticeable how the coast dailies  do Continually get. things, mixed about  the. interior., For instance, the Vancouver Province, referring to the statement  recently published that the Eastern  Townships Bank was about to open  branches at'the coast,'had the follow-,  ing:    ���.'  . ���  . '���    . ,   '..*��  ''The Eastern Townships Bank  al-  nady has several branches in British  f'olumbia, at Rossland, Greenwood  und Grand Forks, and Republic, Wash.,  ard it is stated positively- that it' will  open a .branch - in ��� Vancouver within  the next six weeks."' ; ;  One peculiarity of the above statement is that the Province has succeeded in naming but one place where the  bank referred to has a branch, but has  named several places where it has no  branches.' Verily, Vancouver journalism is fearfully and wonderfully made.  *"  It is not claimed that there is any,  thing new about the following, but it  may serve as a reminder to some who  seem to overlook the fact that one of  the noblest works of God is the man  who promptly pays the editor.  .

Mt  Republic camp must be in hard lines.  It is now said that 5 cent beer is prevalent.  ���M  Up to recently, Vancouver had two  labor weeklies���the Western Clarion,  a straight Socialist paper, and the Independent, a labor paper only. The  latter has been changed into a monthl),  and the former is appealing for funds  to grease the wheels of industry U h)  is it that labor will not rally and support its own publcations' It seems to  be the same old ston  It is estimated diat the value of, the  mineral output (if; the, United.

The directprs'ofihe Daly-West Com.  pany, Utah, have; raised the. monthly  dividend from 60 id 65 cents per share  to dispose of the growing surplus. ' A  further increase 'will, be made if this  does not get the surplus into circulation.  A million-dollar; smelting plant is to  be erected by UieBalaklava Company  in Shasta county, Cal. The mines of  this company, wliiclv'were organized by  a Philadelphia syndicate, are said to  contain the largest body of low-grade  copper ore on the,Pacific coast.
