More  Within the la-.t year or thereabouts,  the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power Co., Ltd., has purchased thirteen. additional mineral  claims in this camp at an aggregate  cost of $432,000, the last of which wis  the completion of the Gold Drop  group purchased a week or two ago for  $275,000. The claims purchased were  as follows, with " their respective,  amounts:  Monte group of four claims. .$  15,000  Monarch andTamarack group  of tour claims .    180,000  Gold ��� Drop   group'of   four  claims...'    ......   225,000  No. 13 claim.     12,000  the company does not owe, a dollar,  and that from now on the company  with its eight furnaces should make an  average of about $125,000 per month  net, or at the rate of $1.25, per share  per annum oh the present outstanding  shares, namely, -1,350,000. ��� The  shares have doubled in value since the  present large interests took hold, and  rnany shareholders have been enabled  to sell half their holdings'and have  their remaining shares all paid for.

The bush and forest fires that  have been coming up the hill from  Greenwood way were getting unpleasantly close, arid' Supt. Smith decided  on action. Foreman Swanson and  some 300 men. started the work of  moving close.to 1,000 cases of 40; 50  and 60 per cent giant powder from the  magazine and front''the thaw house to  a safe place. Company and' town  teams were also pressed into lervice,  as well as the C.P.R. Shay engine. In  about an hour the dangerous explosive  was safely stored in a dry tunnel of the  mine, and later moved into the railway  tunnel of the Snowshoe mine.  i- ��� ...  Saturday night and Sunday in all  directions could' be seen the forest  fires, and the Granby management and  others did some backfiring as a further  >pn caution for safety. A number of  men, including the section crew of the  Great Northern, were also- out watching and fighting the,fires wherever they  ��� ������  ." ��� %�����. .   - . ������  could,' the city hose"bemg,in readiness  down town for instant use.

Flying  Portsmouth, N.H., Aug. 29���Peace  between Russia and Japan was practically concluded at this morning's session of the conference.  The Japanese yielded nearly everything.    In   the  final   struggle Russia  diplomatically achieved a victory.   For  the. sake of peace ..the Japanese with a  magnanimity     worthy     their    heroic  achievements'in the war, met the ultimatum of the  Czar  and abandoned  their demand-* not only for reimburse  ment foMhe cost of the   war,   but for  ���the repurchase of the northern half of  Saghalien) Russia  at   the   same   time  agreeing   to the division of the island.  The Japanese also withdrew   tlie   de-  ,niands   for tlie .surrender of interned  warships and the limitation of Russia's  naval   power   in   the   far   east.    An  armistice   will   be  arranged this afternoon. '  The latest and highest quotation  on Granby shares in Boston is $7,62 }��.  On the Seattle mine, up the North  Fork, work is being continued in the  drift from the 300 foot tunnel.

COMING AND GOING  354-����  Total acreage.   .. ... ��� 692.79  lu area the newly acquired ' claims  of the Granby Co. is about equal to  the area of the old holdings, that is to  say, 350 acres, .or exactly 692.76 acres  all told. Some of the 'claims of the  group, notably the Gold Drop, have  had considerable development done,  while others, like the Monarch and  Tamarack, had little or no work done  thereon, but have; been proved by extensive diamond .drilling, and are al  ready having immense, ore quarries  opened, and ore is being shipped to  the company's smelter at Grand Forks.  It is the intention to open up the  Gold Drop, the latest purchase, at  once, by running a raise from the No.  3 tunnol to the surface, and quarrying  the ore and dropping it down the raise.  Supt. Hodges states that he expects  shortly to begin work on a surface  tramway from the Gold Drop down  the steep hill to one of the Snowshoe  C. P. R. spurs, for shipping purposes,  the arrangements now being made with  the Snowshoe Co. for that purpose.  When the trjniway is built to this spur,  capacious ore bins will be erected.  AVERA0.ES $92,000 PER MONTH PROFIT.  Boston Paper Makes tbat Statement Regarding Granby Co.  The Boston News Bureau makes the  statement that the Granby Consolidated has averaged a net profit of $92,000  per month for the last few months, and  gives the profit for May at $97,000  from a production of 1,926,000 pounds  of copper; for June, $84,000 profit  from 1,260,000 pounds of copper, and  makes an estimate of about $100,000  profit for July, the figures not having  been made up.  The same Boston authority asserts  that T. P. Graves is the largest individual owner of shares iu the Granby, that  with water as a;-preventative from flying sparks:,: To the east there were  also tremendous fires,'-in: the vicinity  of Hartford".Junction.   " ' '��� *  Like the gentle dew . from heaven,  however, on Sunday evening rain fell  for several hours, quenching or deadening most of the fires. It was the most  welcome rain had here in many moons,  and was the cause of many a sigh of  relief.  SUPT. HUSSEY INVESTI0.ATIN0..  Looking    Into    Boundary    Creek   License  Matters.  1 Yesterday Frederick S. Hussey, of  Victoria, superintendent of provincial  police, was a visitor in' Phoenix, coming into the Boundary for the purpose  of investigating matters in connection  with the granting of licenses by the  Boundary Creek license commissioners.  Mr. Hussey was in Cascade and  Grand, Forks before coming to Phoenix with Constable Darraugh, and yesterday morning was driven to Greenwood and Midway, where he continued  his investigations, expecting to take  the afternoon C.P.R. train for Victoria. t  Naturally, at this stage, Mr. Hussey  bad nothing to say about the charges  by Duncan Ross, M.P., of the Gicen-  wood Times, to the effect that licenses  had been illegally granted by the commissioners, but he doubtless saw Mr.  Ross and others in Greenwood before  leaving.  Arthur H. Lawder, one of the com  missions rs, of Grand Forks, denies the  allegations of Mr. Ross concerning  himself in connection with the board,  and says that he is not in the employ  of L. A. Manly, and never has been.  Noble Binns, of Trail, was a visitor  here this week.  W. S. Macy returned from a several  days' visit, to Spokane on Tuesday.  ��� Mrs. Spencer, of Walla Walla,  'mother of W.-S. Macy, is. making an  .extended visit with her son.  Alderman James Marshall went  down to' Vancouver yesterday, being  apprised that his.nephew is ill.

Reeder, engineer for the  Allis-Chaimers-Bullock, Ltd., with  headquarters at Nelson, was here last  Saturday.  Frank J. O'Reilley, one of the surveyors on the Bonnington high-tension  pole line, was called to Victoria last Sunday: by   illness of his mother.  A. H. McNeill, of Rossland, solicitor for the V., V. & E. railway,  was in- the city-Thursday, having been  down to Midway.  Alderman Herbert Bunting, of  Greenwood; was a visitor here Tuesday. As��a contractor he is erecting a  store building for T. M. Gully at Midway.   "' .   ���'���  Patrick Welch, who came in from  Seattle'Tuesday, and proceeded to  Midway, stated that he now had about  700 men at work on his V., V. & E.  railway contract west of Midway.  A party including James Hunter, of  Rossland, :and S. C. Slawson, of  Northport, with hunting paraphernalia,  dogs, etc., were in town Thursday on  the way into the Similkameen, bent on  a slaughter of the innocents.  The new wagon road built by the  owners to the Crescent and Don  Pedro is about 7,000 feet in length,  and givei excellent facilities for  getting in supplies  and  shipping ore.  From a 25 foot crosscut, running  from a 50 foot drift in the bottom of  the new 150 foot shaft of the Emma  mine, Summit camp, a ten foot 'ledge  of good ore has been encountered and  is growing wider. The property lis operated by the British Columbia Copper Co.  The F.lkhorn, adjoining the Providence, is once more working, and a  new shaft is being sunk on the properly. Work was discontinued ' some  months ago, and the Boundary-Elk-  horn Mines, Ltd., was formed. > It is  expected that the mine will produce  sufficient ore to pay for a small machinery plant, the property being one  of the best thought of claims in the  high grade belt.  Last week work was resumed on the  Jewel, the leading claim in Long Lake  camp, and owned by the Jewel Gold  Mines, Ltd., an English corporation.  J. H. Smith is in charge of the work  with a force of seven men. Some  1,300 lineal feet of work had been previously done on the Jewel, which is a  free milling gold proposition, and altogether about 2,500 tons of ore were  shipped. It is years, however, since  any work has been done.

McMillan, managing director of the  LeRoi company, has,,resigned. A  struggle is now going on by C. 1'. R.  forces, led. by- W. A. Aldridge, manager of'the Trail smelter, to get the  LeRoi into the Centre Star-War Eagle  combination, so as to send the output  of the LeRoi to the Trail reduction  works. Opposed to this is said to be  the Great Northern, which would lose  the tonnage to Northport which it now  enjoys. The C.P.R. forces have evidently gained a point by getting a majority on . the board, but the annual  meeting of the'company, soon to be  held, will tell the story. Both Mr.  Aldridge and Mr. McMillan are now  in Loudon. -.:. What effect the resignation of Mr. McMillan from the manager's chair of the LeRoi, will have on  the Snowshoe has not been announced  Smoke from forest fires has retarded  some of the railway construction west  of Midway. .   ���   .    ''  Grand Forks will hold its annual  public school field sports next Monday  ���Labor Day.  Greenwood Miners' Union will celebrate Labor Day���next Monday���by  giving a ball in Masonic hall.  Ernest Mills, secretary of Greenwood Miners' Union, has been over in  the Camborne country organizing a  miners' union.  James McNicol, one of the old time  business men of the Boundary, who  was burned out al Midway a year ago,  has started the erection of a .building  there and will reenter the trade arena.  He hat a store in Vancouver now.  Now that the announcement has  been made that tht Dominion Copper  Co. will likely build a smelter at some  point in the Boundary, to take the  place of the present plant at Boundary  Falls, the city council of Grand Forks  is getting busy, and expects to show  the company the inducements of the  Forks as a smelter location. ' Greenwood and Midway will also be' heard  from, no doubt, and probably-Cascade  also, before a decision is reached.  The visit of Samuel Newhouse and  other officials  of the newly organized  Dominion Copper Co,   to  this  camp  last week, is already beginning to bear  fruit,   in  the  activity   shown'  at  the  mines and  smelter of the company.  Monday morning   the   whistle at the  Brooklyn   mine, which   has noc been  heard in camp for over three months,  once more began  its regular   work   of  notifying employees of the company as  to when to start and quit work.   Manager   Drummond   started   to   engage  men, through Foreman Sampson, and  the force employed   by   this company  in   camp is now about 30 or more, at  the   Rawhide,    Brooklyn   and   Stem-  winder mines.   In accordance with the  plans already decided upon, this force  will be steadily increased as fast as the  men can be utilized to advantage.  , in the Brooklyn the main shaft is to  be deepened, after the runways for the  skip are finished from the 250 foot to  the 350 foot level, and work of similar  character has been going on at the  Stemwinder also, while about ten men  are getting the Rawhide quarry in  shape. A large amount of development is necessary, as nothing of this  kind was done during'the regime of  the old company, the Montreal & Boston Consolidated.  W. C. Thomas, the smelter superintendent, who was in the city this week,"  informed the- Picnear-, that -.he-had a."  force of men at work at the smelter at  Boundary Falls, but that it might be  some weeks yet before he was ready to  start operations at that end, and that  when they were started it was proposed  to keep them up continuously, assurances being had also that the ore supply was adequate for all needs of the  smelter. Both furnaces will be blown  in when preparations are completed.  Lost tbe Private Car.  In the party of Domniion Copper  Co. officials that visited Phoenix last  week was William M. Donald, who is  one of the wealthy New Yorkers interested here, and a member of the  the banking house of Donald, Grant &  Co. After leaving Spokane the party  continued to Tacoma in the private  Pullman car Convoy, and here for the  first time on record a private car was  lost. Mr. Donald did some tall  wiling all over the west to find the  Convoy, which it seems had gone  on to Portland with the rest of the  party, while Mr. Donald was viewing  the City of Destiny with his brother.  The entire party has now continued  east.

After a long session by a special arbitration committee, an agreement was arrived at between the mine management and the  miners, and while it was not satisfactory to all, if was lived up to till its  expiration���and this notwithstanding  the fact that the company and the men  had a pretty hard man to deal with in  James H. Tonkin, the general manager, as was. proved afterwards. Two  or three months a^o a new agreement  was made and it was supposed that the  matter was. definitely, settled for another year:or two at least.  But last Saturday week the men all  men stopped work and presented a list  of grievances to Supt. Drinnan. ��� Mr.  Drinnan said that he would grant theni,  at least till G. G. S. Lindsey, the manager, returned from a trip to' Europe,  when they would all be looked into.  Thus the matter is satisfactorily settled  for a time.  But,' over here in the Boundary,  where the continuity of smelting and  mining operations is directly contingent on the Fernie supply of coke, it  would seem that there must be' some-'  thing wrong about the managers of,the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. when1 they  reduced wages in the face of a recently  made agreement���or at least, that is  the claim made, and which has not  been denied as yet. The thoughtful  man cannot help but wonder what  kind of individuals are in the control of  that company, anyway, that they are  unable to live in peace with their employees for any considerable length of  time.  After the previous settlement, all  kinds of things were charged against  Mr. Tonkin, the then.manager���and  later events proved there was pretty  good basis for the charges. We have  not heard similar complaints this timr,  but to an outsider it appears as though  the company was trying in every possible way to get the better of the men  ���iii methods that are beneath men of  any business standing in any decent  community.  , Such matters are too serious to he  trifled with, as the Crow's Nest P&ss  Goal Co. seems to have done. If the  company's agents make an agreement,  let them stand to it like men. If an  agreement  is   made by the company  BENEFIT OF FAIRS AND EXPOSITION  As readers of this paper are aware,  the fair or exposition season is now beginning, and in the next few weeks  thousands will temporarily give up their  accustomed vocations, garb themselves  in their best bibsv and tuckers, as it  were, and hie themselves off to where  they can see the biggest squashes and  pumpkins, the best ore displays, the  sleekest and fattest cattle, the races  and the thousand and one things provided at fair time to interest and entertain the average attendant.  These fairs are a good thing, not  only for the community where held,  but for the people at large. It is a  wise thing for the average man or  woman: to drop the" cares of every day  life and secure a change, where possible, in witnessing whatever may be  provided. We all know that too much  play makes Jack a dull-boy, and so it  is with work. It benefits our minds  and bodies in no inconsiderable degree to secure an entire change of environment, even for a short time.  . In. this section of. the northwest  there are four fairs that are now attracting special attention. The first of  these to be held is'that at Nelson,  which opens September 20th and  closes on the 23rd of the same month.  Each year this fair is improving, and is  well worth attending by residents of  the Kootenays and Yale. This year  the attractions will be greater than  ever.  Next in chronological sequence  cpmes the Dominion Exhibition ac  New -Westminster, from September  27th to October, 7th. This;';fkir is  more pretentious than ever before, and  thousands of dollars are being spent  this year to make'it attractive. That  it will be a successful event is already  assured, as thousands all over the  province and elsewhere are preparing  to attend.  Fro.11 October 9th lo 15th the- Spokane Interstate annual fair will beheld.  This also is an event which has always  attracted much attention and has always been successful, Spokane's geographical position being so advantageous  as to make it the centre for hundreds  of miles in eacrudirection. No money  or labor is being spared this season to  eclipse all previous efforts.  ' At- Portland, Oregon, the Lewis and  Clark Centennial and ' American  Pacific Exposition and Oriental Fair  ��� 'to give it its full title ��� hat  been attracting unusual attention  all over the continent since it opened  on June. 15th, and will continue to do  so till it closes on October 15th. It  is the largest and most pretentious fair  ever held, on the Pacific coast, and  attracts notice sccordingly.

If report* from Spokane can be relied upon, William K. Hearst, who already owns dailies in Boston, New  Vork, Chicago, San Francisco and Los  Angeles, will soon start another in  the city, by the fails of the Spokane  river, in opposition to the Spokesman-  Revirw. The latter is probably the  best newspaper published in a place ol  that size west;of the Missi-s:ppi river,  but it has its enemies,asall good papers  do. No one much shot t of the cash  resources of Mr. Hearst would think of  tackling such a job in Spokane.  Yesterday the new province of Alberta laid aside its infantile raiment  and put on long pant's, taking its place  as one-of the full fledged partners in  the Canadian federation. There is  plenty of evidenceto show, however,  that the new province has its full quota  of assiduous seekers after the loaves  and fi��hr.s'that are occasionally found  in politics. . '  ��� -���  An Okauagan exchange remarks that  it is-about to install a new two-revolution "Cotterel" press. For the sake of  the office, it is to be hoped that the  pressman will know-more.. about the  machine than the editor does,,'; When  we operated a Cottrell souie^ears ago,  tbe machine would surely; liSve bucked  had we dubbed it in any such manner  as that. .   - .      .-..'::'-  ��� The Fernie Fret Press does not  propose "to allow the.

As Bre'r Johnsing  remarked, "De world do move" when  weekly papers are so prosperous that  such typographical triumphs are possible in small towns.  P. F. Goodenrath, who is issuing,"  iwiih the \ ictoria Colonist, a volume  called "Mother Earth's Treasure  Vault," dealing with the Boundary,  Osoyoos and Similkameen, was in the  city early this week, having just returned from a trip to Calgary. Mr.  Goodenrath states that the enterprise  is an ensured success, and he has now  gone to the coast to attend to the details of copy and printing. It will  contain hundreds of views, artistically  printed, and promises to b^a most interesting volume.  Vis' ������"  The awarding of contracts on the  Great Northern extension in the Siniilkameen district was expected to result  in' a number of new townsites being  placed on the market, but evidently  the townsite promoters had gotten in  their work ye.rrs ahead of the railway.  However, one baby town has lately  made its appearance, with the hope  of becoming a second Rossland or a  second Phoenix. It is baptized Cen-  tromino, and is located in the Upper  Keremeos valley, Keremeos cretk  meandering through its 200 acres of  flat bench land, and being surrounded  with copper bearing hills.  tst  David Rome Young, better known  as "Windy" Young throughout the  Kootenays and Yale, has been looking  over Midway, with a view to some  realty booming, but which does not  seem to have eventuated as yet. Mr.  Young has, at one time or another,  lived in most of the lively towns of the  interior, and is known by all the business men from Fernie to Princeton.  Quite a number will remember his  Similkameen Valley Coal Co. and his  Ashnola Smelter, Ltd., which never  produced b'ack diamonds and never  smelted. --  Mf  An ;epterprising Paris editor has  wired'"'Rockefeller suggesting'that he  should pay the little indemnity of some  $600,000,000 that the Japs wanted to  get from'.-Russia. Mr. Rockefeller's  income for this year of i<race is estimated at $25,000,000, but he has not  signified his intention of helping out  the czar ever so little. Perhaps he is  lik'j ordinary people���the'more he gets  the more he wants. And he seems to  be getting more, too.

Among the attractive additions to  the buildings at the 1905 Dominion  Fair which will open at New Westminster on Sept. 27, is an elaborate  band stand for the accommodation of  the Royal Irish guards band, which has  been engagtd at enormous cost as the  muiical feature of the big exhibition.  Although the Irish Guards have not  been long in existence, and up to their  formation there was no particular Irish  battalion forming one of the household  regiments, it has yet gained a reputation for itself as a magnificent organization, so far as the rank and file are'  concerned, but more especially through  the splendid band that C. H. Hassell  succeeded in getting together.  This band comprises forty-two of  the finest musicians in any military  organization in the British Empire.  They have all been selected for their  special ability on some particular instrument, and in fact, each and every  one is a soloist. In passing, it might  be mentioned that it is a gratifying  fact, and one considered very gratifying to the Royal Military School of  Music, that all the bandmasters of His  Majesty's Foot Guards received their  training at Kneller Hall.  ALL GOOD THINGS  must win upon their  merits. The International  Dictionary has won a  greater distinction upon  its merits and is in more  general use than any other  work of its kind in the  English language.  - A. H. Sayce, LL.D., D.D., at Oxford  TJnlveralty, England, has recently gald  of it: It is indeed a marvelous work; it Is  difficult to conceive of a dictionary more  exhaustive and complete. Everything- is  in it���not only what we might expect to  find in such a work, but also what few of |  us would ever have thought of looking  for.  A supplement to the new edition has  brought it fully up to date.
