Ooooooo^M  Thursday noon, just as the whistle  blew, Ronald Mclnnis, a carpenter  helper employed by the Granby Consolidated, was electrocuted by touching a live wire, at a point about 150  feet in front of Foreman Steve Swan-  son's house. The wire carried 2,000  volts, and death musthave been instan  taneous.  Mclnnis had been working on the  excavations for the new ore bins, that  will be fed from the Victora shaft, and  he had started for the Granby boarding  house for dinner. Near where he  worked three heavy copper wires were  tied to ��� the bottom of a pole, being  part of a new line being built in that  locality. The pole also caried live  wires, and the new wires were kept  dead by a guy rope holding them from  the live wires.  . As Mclnnis was oh his way to' dinner, 200 yards distant, he stepped into  the bushes at one side of the short  trail, and as he did so grasped the  wires. Then evidently his face touched  them and instantly he reeled and'fell,  dying instantly. Some of the workmen  had discoveied that the wires were  alive previously, and warned Mclnnis  of that tact, but he doubtless forgot it,  supposing the wires to be dead; as they  had been. Foreman Swanson phoned  for medical help at once, but Mclnnis was beyond human aid. The  current almost cooked his feet where  it ran into the ground, and burned his  neck badly. '  Deceased was a man of between 35  and 40 years of age, and had been employed at the Granby mines only since  June 15th last. He was a native'of  Nova Scolia, leaving a widow and six  children at Antigonish, in that province.  ..Jury Blames Granby Co.  ��� Yesterday, Coroner A. -S.-Black," of  Greenwood, empannelled a. jury, and  held an inquest to inquire* into' the  cause of the death of Mclnnis.' David  Whiteside, solicitor, of Grand Forks,  was present. Four witnesses were examined, three being fellow workmen and the fourth was Ab. Hillier,  electrician of the Granby Co., who had  charge of the wires.  The first three witnesses were John  F. Hill, Edmund Goodwin and' William Percival, employed with deceased'  in 'the excavation. Their testimony  related in detail how the fatility , happened. The wires that did the damage ran along the ground from a pole  some distance away, and near where  they were employed. That day Percival said he believed the wires were  alive. They had all been in the habit  of going into the bushes where the unfortunate man met his death. Deceased was found by Goodwin, who  heard him fall in the bushes, and  shouted to his comrades, "My God,  boys, Mac is dead."  Ab'. Hillier, electrician for the Granby Co. for four years, testified that  he  was in charge of the  wires,   and   that  he had fastened them where they   are,  placing the guy rope and tying  it   fast  to a stump, to keep   the  cables   from  tbe live wires; examined the rope every  day; when ihe accident   happened   he  was called and was on the scene   three  minutes   afterwards;  saw   dead   man,  and     rushed      to    ascertain     cause;  found  guy   rope   slack   and   swinging  against city pump line,   and   with   Dr.  Boucher's huip pulled it taut   to   break  connections; did not consider wires   in  a dangerous position; rope   could   not  be untied by anything running  into it;  weather  could   stretch   rope   but  not  enough for   wires   to   come   together;  knot was untied when he   went   there  after  accident; wind could  not   bring  wires together if rope was tied.  Verdict ot Jurv.  We, the undersigned jurymen, summoned   to   inquire   into   the death of  Ronald Mclnnis, find that be came to  bis death by coming   in   contact   with  a live wire, said   wire supposed to  be  dead, but which had  become  charged  through   failure   on ;the   part  of   the  Granby company to take the necessary  precautions to   prevent   this   wire   becoming alive.     And we further recommend that these cables  spoken   of in  the evidence be secured in such a manner that even should they become alive  they would not endanger life.  Cokoskk,  A. S.

Up to the time of   going   to   press,  last night   with   the   Pioneer, arrangements   had   not   been    made  for the  funeral.  The Granby's Victoria shaft is now  down about 70 feet:  The main shaft on the Crescent,  which is now down about 142 feet,  will be continued to the 200 foot-level.  This week the Providence mine has  190 tons to its shipping credit, the  largest for any one week for several  months. ';'���  A good showing has been made oa  the Eureka, a high grade property near  Greenwood, on which work was started  a few weeks ago.  The Prince Henry will shortly ship  another ear of ore, a good quality of  ore now being taken out of the drift  .in this property.  High values are, still maintained in  the drift on the Strathmore, which is  in about 115 feet. Some 50 tons of  ore are now ready for shipment to the  smelter.  According to an eastern report, the  Dominion Copper Co. earned $32,000  net for the mouth of July, bringing total net for nine months to approximately $232,000.  A first payment of $3,000 has been  made by the Dominion Copper Co. on  its bond on the Gloucester group in  Franklin camp, on which development  is now progressing.  T. H. Rea, manager of the Betts  and Hesperus, has signed a contract  with the Diamond Drill Contracting  Co., of Spokane, for another thousand  feet of diamond drill work.  It is'reported that the New York  capitalists that lately took a bond on  the Wolford group of claims on.Fourth  of July creek, will shortly inaugurate a  vigorous development programme.  George VV. Cornish, of Greenwood,  who is preparing an ore exhibit from  the Boundary for the Nelson and Spokane fairs, reports meeting with considerable encouragement from the upper  part of the Boundary.  It has been decided to have the  Great Nortdern"' tracks extended to  the Victoria shaft of the Granby Co.,  directly below the C. P. R. tracks, instead of around the hill, as at first  proposed. Excavations, were started  this week for the foundations for ."the  ore" bins referred to.    "  It is expected that development on  the Capital Prize, adjdining the Helen,  will be started some time this month.  The claim is under bond from Johnson and KetTer to G. W. Cornish, and  eastern capitalists are expected here  shortly. When started, the first work  will be to sink a 200-foot shaft.  The water is now finally all out of  the lower workings of the Snowshoe  mine, and would have been out sooner but for the pump that was under  water getting out of working order after starting. Ore shipments from the  Snowshoe will likely be increased  shortly to 2150 tons daily.  When the new Victoria shaft is completed and in operation at the Granby  mines, it is more than likely that an  electric haulage system will be installed at the 400-foot level of the properties, this ore all being raised to the  surface in the five-ton balanced skips  through the Victoria shaft.  LABOR DAY  CELEBRATION  And Picnic  for  Next  day.  Mon-  CITY COUNCIL  DONATES $75.00  Full Programme as Prepared  by. Committee.  Theo. T. Mueller, in charge of development at the Crescent fraction of  the Lake group, in Skylark camp, was  in town yesterday. He states that the  shaft is now down 82 feet, and is sinking at the rate of 14 inches daily. He  is taking out the ore as development  proceeds, tests of the ore showing that  it goes Si7 oa. silver and l/i oz. gold,  or $537.44 per ton It is the intention to shortly begin the driving of a  long tunnel, which will give a depth of  some 350 feet, and will pick up the  ore when driven about 200 feet. The  shaft will be continued to the 100-fool  level before drifting is commenced.  Several of the officers of the company  are expected in the Boundary some  time in September.  Arthur W. Haley, C.P.R. agent, returned yesterday from his vacation,  spent on Lake Coeur d'Alene.   '  Important Busiaes* Cbsage.  Chas. D. Hunter returned from  Grand Forks on Wednesday, where he  had just closed the final details of the  sale of the Hunter Kendrick Co.,  stock, in that place. The stock is taken by Hunter Brothers, ol Rossland.  James Hunter, of Rossland, sold his  interest in the Hunter-Kendiick Co.,  Ltd., and with Robert Hnnter bought  the Grand Forks stock of the company. On the other hand, Charles D.  Hunter and William T. Hunter, of the  company, while they have disposed of  the Grand Forks stock of perhaps $6o,-  000, are now almost the sole owners  of the stores of the company in Greenwood and Phoenix. Norman L. Mclnnis, of Nelson, who was formerly  with Hunter Brothers, will be in charge  of the Grand Forks Store, which will  be conducted as the N. L. Mclnnis  & Co., Ltd. According to the  new arrangement, Charles 1). Hunter will hereafter he relieved of the  weekly trips to Grand Forks, wl ich he  has been making for some months  past, and will concentrate his efforts  on the Phoenix business, which has  been steadily increasiug.

For Boundary Exhibit at Nelson and Spokane.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council there were present, Mayor  Rumberger and Aldermen Brown,  Marshall, Oxley and Kane:: A .letter  was read from T. Biner, proprietor of  the Phoenix brewery, asking that Twin  creek be properly flnmed for a short  distance on his property, as he wished  to make .some improvements. The  board of works was given authority to  attend to the matter.  Mayor Rumberger announced that  there was one case of typhoid fever in  the citv, and that he had asked Dr.  Gordon to ascertain the cause. The  physician's letter was read, to the effect  that it wai caused by drinking from the  spring back of the residence of George  lilkins, near the Bellevue hotel��� ;-.  spring that has been used a great deal  for drinking water. Attached to the  doctor's letter was an account for $25.  The council ordered the police to  put up a sign at the spring warning all  that it was not safe to use the water,  and also a notice inserted in the Phoe  nix Pioneer, cautioning everyone to  boil all drinking water, etc.  The council considered the matter  of making a donation to G. XV. Cornish (or the purpose of getting up a  representative mineral exhibit from  the Boundary for the Nelson and Spokane fairs, and decided to grant $75  for this purpose.  A committee from the Miners'  Union was allowed to address the  council, asking that no permit be granted for a prize fight on Labor day, as it  would detract from the orderly, celebration intended to be held. The  committee was informed that the council had-no power to grant such permits, but that if anything of the kind  was going on the police magistrate was  the proper official to consult with in  the matter.  Bills were presented amounting to  $70 for labor on the Dominion avenue  sidewalk and $12.50 to the Pioneer  Pub. Co., and ordered paid.  ! ^.^Ki^*^5Library^ti^^|  For  $1,800,000 NET  the Fiscal Year  Ending  June  30,  \ 906.  Produced Almost   25,000,000  Pounds of Copper.  A late report from Boston states  that stockholders of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power  Co. will receive with their September  dividend checks notice of the company's annual meeting to be held in  New York on Oct. 2.  The company's fiscal year ended  June 30, and during that period net  earnings were between $1,800,000 and  $1,900,000. Copper production was  just under 25,000,000 pounds.  At present the company is treating  about 2300 tons daily, but around  Nov. 1, with the completion of new  furnace equipment, tli'is amount will  be increased to over 3,000 tons daily.  Next year's production is expected to  show a still futher material increase,  and a director is of the opinion that  the production will be eventually increased to considerably over the 50,-  000,000 pounds mark.  The shares of the company are now'  in   the   hands   of between   2500 and  3000 persons, as compared wi h about  900 in   December,   1903,   the time of  the first dividend payment.

Boundary Side Lights  Work is under way on the new  bridge across the Kettle river at Midway.  Curlew lake is said to be turning  into a body of stagnant water, and to  be too muddy for trout.

Mr;-Cowperthwaite, of,: -Mpncton,  N. B., not being able to accept the appointment as principal of the Grand  Forks high school, R.D.Fulierton, of  Sackville, N. S., was given the appointment.  Last Saturday the ratepayers of  Grand Forks had a chance to vote on  whether they would add $4,000 to the  $207,000 debenture indebtedness of  the city, for the purpose of building  another bridge across Kettle river. The  vote stood, in favor, SS: against, 56;  rejected ballots, 6; total 150. As it  required a majority of three-fifths to  carry, it has been a question as to  whether it did carry legally. A. C.  Sutton rendered a legal opinion that  it did carry.  Misers' Electlea Today.

We should be thankful that  they do not seem to take kindly to a  northern climate���as yet.  Shares in the three large Boundary  copper producers are steadily increasing  in price in New York and Boston, and  some predict an even greater increase  in the next three or four months.  the Colonist the manging director vig  orously asserts that there is no truth  whatever in the story.  Did any one notice this end of the  earth tipping up appreciably last Thurs-  jday? If so, it may be attribu ted to  the fact that Wm. J. Bryan arrived at  New York from his much heralded  trip around the world, and was received  with one acclaim by a special committee of citizens. The former apostle  of free silver is generally conceded to  be the logical nominee en the Democratic ticket for the presidency, and  that fact is making the Republicans  take considerable notice, as the Bryan  boom steadily gathers momentum.  Press dispatches credit Sir William  Van Home, chairman pf the board of  directors of the C. P. R., with saying  that, for every mile of railway James  J. Hill builds in C. P. R. territory, so  called, the latter would construct two  miles in Mr. Hill's territory, so called.  As Mr. Hill has announced Severn 1  new lines for heretofore C. P. R. preserves, there is every chance of there  being some gaiety among the railway  builders in the Northwest. And the  country-will receive the benefit of a  competitive service if hot of rates.  .

A complete statement of the Dominion's finances for the year is not  yet at hand' but the indications are that  the revenues of $78,000,000 will surpass total expenditures by nearly $10,-  000,000. It is estimated that Canada  is now producing about $650,000,000  worth of manufactured goods annually,  and that some 84 per cent of those  goods is consumed at home. Within  tlie next few years some 10,000 miles  of railways will be added to the systems, and will open millions of acres  of fruitful lands to settlement and  cultivation.

Robr>H.jCo"sgrove; manager 0/ the fair, has preserved all the  exhibit': which have been gathered  during the last two or three years, and  this in itself makes a good display of  the mineral resources cf the Pacific  northwest. Besides these, howeve/  many camps are sending in new specimens which will freshen up their displays and show the latest developments  of their mines and the new discoveries.  George William Cornish, of Greenwood, is" preparing entire new exhibits  of tbe big mines of the Boundary country, which will be shipped to ihe fair  this year. The Boundary in the past  has had some of the best ore ever seen  at Spokane.  Many new exhibits will be made by  the mines of the Coeur d'Alenes. This  district has been forging ahead witl  great rapidity during the past y.ar and  the mining men believe that while in  the past they have had representative  showings of their properties at the Spokane fairs, it is quite necessary that  these be added to in order to properly  represent the mines of this now famous  section. It is the desire of the management of the fair that all the districts  in the Pacific northwest follow the example of the Coeur d'Alenes and the  Boundary, and strengthen their displays at the fair, which lasts two weeks  this year, instead of one, and will be a  greater benefit to all miners who ex.  hibit. Several new camps and discov  eries wili make a showing for the first  time.  The Summer Widower.  .

Up  to the time of going to press  he had | the numerous events  not been reported as apprehended  in  more than ten or fifteen different points  at one and the same time, during the  past week.  The Pioneer's statistician has it  figured out that, by the first of January, the Boundary output of copper  should be at the rate of 125,000  pounds per day, or 3,750,000 pounds  per month, or close to 50,300,0:0  pounds per annum. This will make  the copper producers in other paits  take more note of this section than  ever before, and it will not hurt the  I.ouricln.ry, either.

In order to avoid any misunderstanding such as occurred in Union Pacific, when stockholders were so shocked by the enlarged dividend, we desire  to state that stockholders in Calumet & Hecla should be prepared to withstand a similar shock if the next quarterly dividend is $20, like the last,  says the Hoston News Bureau.  H'e say this advisedly from the codition of the metal market, the condition of the company's treasury and the known policy of the directors. The  company has more money in its $10,000,000 treasury than belongs there, is  earning $100 per share, the sales department was never more pleased with the  outlook in the demand for copper, and, therefore, if anybody is going to be  shocked by quarterly dividends of $20 per share, he has now time and a warning to get from under.  According to the balance sheet as of date April 30th, a balance sheet  which takes no account of the mines or the $20,000,000 worth of machinery,  supplies and timber lands, the company had a surplus in cash and copper of  $10,629,819.

They own and operate their  own sleeping and dining cars and give  their patrons an excellence of service  not obtainable elsewhere.  Berths in their sleepers are longer,  higher and wider than in similar cars  on any other line. They protect their  trains by the Block system.  Elbert Hubbard, the philosophical  editor of the Philistine, printed the  following, which is worth cutting our  and preserving :  The world bestows its big prizes in  money and in honors for but one thing  ���initiative. What is initiative? It  consists in doing the right thing without  being told. The next best thing to  doing the right thing without being  told, is to do it when you are told  once. Some people never do a thing  until they are told twice; such get no  honors and small pay. Then there are  those who do the right thing only  when necessity kicks them from behind. This class spends most of its  time polishing benches with hardluck  stories. Still, lower down in 'he scale  is the fellow who will not dc the right  thing even when some one goes along  to show him how, and stays to see he  does it; he is always out of a job, and  receives only the contempt he deserves,  unless he has a rich pa, in which case  destiny waits patiently around the corner with a stuffed club.  No matter what other kind of advertising you do, be sure to use the  newspapers. If you have tried newspaper advertising and not found it a  success, your advertising was.poorly  written or your system was wrong.  Newspaper advertising can be made  to pay anyone, who uses it, if right  goods and ri^ht prices are right behind  the talk.  The editor decided to try "fonetic"  spelling in his paper and the experiment seemed a success until he got  the following :  "Dere Sur���I   hev  tuk yure paper  fur leven yeres, butt ef yew  kant  spel  eny beter than hev bin doin fer last  to munths yew ma jest stoppit."  ��������  According to figures from Ottawa,  during the last fiscal year there were  57,800 immigrant arrivals in Canada  from the United States. It thus seems  that the sons and daughters of Uncle  Samuel know a good thing when they  see it.  William MacKenzie, of Toronto,  president of the Canadian Northern  railway, and president of the Toronto  Street Railway Co., visited the. coast a  few days ago. The firm of MacKenzie  & Mann is known all over Canada.  Some eight years ago the firm bought  the Brooklyn group of six claims in  Phoenix camp, and formed the Dominion. Copper Co., which company,  in American control, is now so actively  developing the properties. As mining  men this firm has not been shining  very brightly in the Boundary in the  past, but as railway builders, they stand  in the front rank, and one of these  days will have their Canadian Northern  constructed through to the coast���  and may beat the Grand Trunk Pacific  in reaching that goal.  to exclude it from the mails. Needless to say, the genial colonel makes a  few remarks in his valedictory or funeral sermon regarding his opinion of  Mr. Lemieux. Among other things,  he states that he applied to the post-  office department to ascertain just  what was taken exception to, and the  officials at Ottawa vouchsafed him  never a word.  ���<���  While we do not agree with many of  the opinions expressed in Lowery's  Claim, we must say that the man who  has started more papers than any other in Canada lias had a hard deal meted out to him by the autocrats of the  Laurier administration. Me asserts  that if he had been a Frenchman and  a Grit, things mi^ht have been different. As it is, he can hardly be blamed for shaking the dust from his Icei  and hieing himself  to sunnier   climes.  UNITED STATES SENATOR  FROM SOUTH CAROLINA  PRAISES PERUNA.

Instead of leading her to the alter Mr. Carter must have carried her  in his arms.  "In the struggle for liberty," shouted the long-haired anarchist, "you will  always find me, brothers,   in the van."  "Sure," said the doughty policeman  as he pulled him into ihe patrol.  An epileptic dropped in a fit on the  streets of Boston not long ago, and  was taken to a hospital. Upon removing his coat there was found pinned to  his waistcoat a slip of paper on which  was written:  "This is to inform the house surgeon that this is just a case of plain fit,  not appendicitis. My appendix has  already been removed twice."  THE GBANBY CONSOLIDATED IIMNS,  SMELTING & POWER COMPANY, Ltd.  NOTICE.

Pain  from   a   Burn   Promptly   Relieved  Chamberlain's Pain   Balm.  by  A little child of Michael Strauss, of  Vernon, Connecticut, was recently in  great pain from a burn on the hand,  and as cold applications only increased  the inflammation, Mr. Strauss came to  Mr. James N. Nichols, a local merchant, for something to stop the pain.  Mr. Nichols says : " I advised him  to use Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and  the first application drew out the inflammation, and gave immediate relief, I have used this liniment myself,  and recommend it very often for cuts,  burns, strains and lame back, and have  never kuown it to disappoint."

Meantime, however, the mining industry has been looking up all over  the country, and the Trail smel'er has  more than it can do to treat all the  copper ores offered.    This, doubtless,  a dance given in the Ozark mine, at the  100-foot level, where room was actually made for two sets to dance at once.  Some of the people who read that  item might not be aware of the fact,  but it is a fact, nevertheless, that there  are mines within gunshot, of the Pioneer office where there are stopes in  which dozens of sets could dance at  once, and still have room to spare���  and that at a depth of more than i oo  feet. When it comes to talking about  good sized stopes in mines, it is not  necessary for the Boundary to take  any but a front seat.

The people intend celebrating  what is to be termed a "Made in \ an-  couver" day. On that day the exhibits  in the shop windows will consist en-  lirely of things made in Vancouver. At  a recent public meeting held to discuss  the plans for the day we quote a report  from the News-Advertiser :  "During the course of Mr. Hollands remarks he suggested the advisability of holding, in conjunction with  the carnival, a 'baby show,' which, he  assured the meeting, would be a bowling success. His motion was not  looked upon with favor, however, and  no one seemed willing to 'father' the  movement.''  The only'sin there is in the peek-a-  boo waist is in the man  that  looks at  it and the woman who thinks there is.  ��������  The September issue of Lowery's  Claim is out, and in it Mr. Lowery an  notinces that the monthly is now  among the angels, and will, be seen no  nore of men. This is due primarily  to the fact tha: Honorable Rudolph  Lemieux, postmaster-general of this  broad and free Dominion, has seen fit  had its influence with Manager Ald-  ridge in making the arrangement referred to, by which a part of the Le  Roi ores will begin going to Northport,  and later, when some 7.:;,ooo tons  more of Le Roi ore have been treated  at Trail, the entire output will go to  the 1 e Roi's smelt'-r at  Northport.  It has always been a mooted ques  tion as lo whether the Le Roi ores  could be treated U less expense at  Trail or Northport. This question will  now be settled. Manager McMillan, ot  the Le Roi, claimed that the company's  own smelter could do the work the  cheapest, while his opponents claimed  otherwise. For the last several months  it is reported that the Le Roi mine,  under Manager McMillan, and send  ing its output to the Trail smelter, has  been netting about $40,000 per month.  The announcenit nt, which comes  shortly after the return of Mr. McMillan from the old country, means an increased tonnage from several Rossland  mines and more activity at Northport,  which has felt the inactivity at the  smelter.  Common Sense nnd Good  Advice.  It is encouraging to read in the "St.  Louis Medical and Surgical Journal,"one  of the leading medic il journals of tlie  United Stales, the following sound  argument regarding medicines :  "No sane physician will condemn a  drug or medicine because an overdose  results unfavorably, lor if we did we  might better quit the practice of medicine than to treat patients with drugs  so inert that overdoses will never do  harm. Any drug or medicine which is  safe if taken according to directions  on the package, is a safe remedy in the  sense in which the word 'safe' is used  in medicine "  That is the only safeguard for either  the doctor's prescription or the patent  medicine; to be safe it must be taken  according to directions.

Meeting of Citizens Held Last
Tuesday evening a meeting of business men and citizens generally was
held at the city hall, to consider what
should be done in the way of entertaining the Spokane Chamber of;
Commerce, when the members visit
Phoenix on September 12th. There
was an excellent attendance, Major
Rumberger being chosen chairman,
and W. B. Willcox secretary, those
present including A. B. W. Hodges,
Charles Biesel, O. B. Smith, Jr., A. B.
Hood, and many business men.
The chairman stated the object of
the meeting, and it was the unanimous
opinion' that Phoenix should show
every courtesy to the visitors. There
are expected to be about 125 in the
party, including a dozen ladies. They
will travel in a solid Pullman train, arriving here about noon from Republic,
and leaving here in the afternoon for
Grand Forks. After that they will go
to Nelsen, Kaslo and Rossiand.
A general committee was appointed,
to meet the visitors on their arrival,
as follows : A. B. W. Hodges, Thos.
R. Drummond, Charles Biesel, 0. B.
Smith, Jr., E. E. Gardanier, A. B.
Hood, G. W. Rumberger, Chas. D.
Hunter, J. E. W. Thompson, C. H.

O. N. Galer, C. M. Campbell, G. L.
McNicol, George Smith, Isaac Crawford, D. J. Matheson, Dr. G. S. Gordon, Dr. R. B. Boucher.
A special, reception committee, to
meet the visitors at Grand Forks and
accompany them to Phoenix, was appointed as follows : A. B. W. Hodges,
A. B. Hood, G. W. Rumberger J. L.
Martin, W. B. Willcox and another.
A finance committee was appointed, consisting of A. B. Hood, O. B.
Smith, Jr., J. E. W. Thompsen, L. Y.
Birnie and XV. R. Williams. - This
committee has already been at work,
and reports making good progress in
getting the necessary funds.
A committee on transportation was
appointed as follows : Charles Biesel,
T. R. Drummond and O.B. Smith, Jr.
If the committee can arrange for it
without pnrchasing the entire C. P. R.
outright, it is the intention to have the
visiting party taken on flat cars, with
seats, from the lower Stemwinder spur,
the train to go over the Stemwinder
and Brooklyn spurs, thence out to the
Snowshoe, Gold Drop and Rawhide,
from which the Golden Crown and
Winnipeg can be seen. Then the
train can be run back up on the moon
track to the glory hole of the Granby
mines. This would give the visitors a
magnificent and comprehensive s'.-ries
of views of the camp and its several
mines; an inspection of the Granby
mines on some of the tunnel levels
being then afforded.
As the Granby boarding house is
the only place in the city large enough
to seat the entire party of visitors at
once, Mr. Macy has consented to
prepare lunch there for the party.
The general committee will meet
again at the city hall next Tuesday
evening, when reports from the subcommittees will be heaid.
