One of the firm has  been constantly on,hand,   having  immediate  charge of the work, and that  it has been of a satisfactory  character  to Manager Graves and Supts.

Last Monday night, ''The Richest  Cqon in Georgia" was presented by a  troupe of darky comedians, at the  Miners' Union hall. Upon the whole,  the play was fairly well rendered, but  the efforts of the comedian deserves  special praise. The audience, though  small, was an appreciative one, as was  evidenced by the hearty applause given  the actors.  Phoenix should be a good play town  and when the new opera house is completed, an effort should be made to  induce good companies to include this  place in their circuits.  ,   Mrs. Howard Moore  the city.  G. W. Wooster came up  Forks on Thursday.  Miss Leita Wallace   left   this  for. Lebanon, Oregon.  ���   J. L. Martin made a flying  trip  his Curlew ranch on Sunday.  Misses Bertha and .Mabel Heider-  man left Sunday /or Spokane to attend  high'school.  Mrs. R. B. Boucher, who has been  visiting relations, and friends at the  coast, during the past two months, returned home on Thursday.  Rev Walter Ross, of Grand Forks,  preached two very acceptable sermons  at the Presbyterian -church here last  Sunday.  I. Mrs. J. L. Martin went down to  Spokane last week. She was accompanied by her daughter Marjorie, who  will enter the high school there.  After spending the holiday at his  home here, Charles Buckless went to  Grand Forks, this \veek to resume his  high school studies.  ; Alfred Shallenberg, an employee of  the Granby Co., had the misfortune  to have a leg and an arm broken at  the mine on Sunday last.  A considerable number of Phoenix  young people attended the Labor Day  dance at Greenwood, given by the  Greenwood .Miners' Union in the  Masonic hall.1  Emery W.^Buckley, a young man 32  years of age, of Grand Forks, was instantly killed on Sunday last by the  accidental discharge, of his shotgun,  He and his brother had spent the  morning hunting chicken and it was  on the return trip that the sad accident happened.  A party of young people from  Greenwood consisting of Misses Dynes,  Dixon, Stevenson, Mrs. Parker, Mr.  Braden and Mr. Watson, visited Phoenix on Monday. In. company with  several local residents they inspected  the leading business places of the city  also the famous Granby compressor.  The reception given them was very  cordial and when the time arrived to  leave this rarified atmosphere one and  all expressed their unwillingness to dip  again into the.vallsy. . The last words  heard as they descended were, "We  had no idea Phoenix had so many attractive places and people." Perhaps  in their travels they. had met "The  Richest Coon in Georgia,"   who  also  was at Phoenix that day.   i__���~ -  Tbe 0. R. & N. Reduces tbe Rate  to Portland and return from Spokane.

Last winter the drill on the Monarch was oper  ated by steam, but now both of the  machines use compressed air from the  Granby plant.  Considerable difference of opinion  exists among mining men regarding  diamond drilling. Some prefer to install and operate their own drills, taking, chances on losing or breaking the  black diamonds, etc. But the Granby  management seems to prefer the contract system, and in Page Boyles they  have a man who thoroughly understands his business. The cores, of  course, as they come out, are carefully  labelled and preserved, and when assayed at the smelter, give a good idea  of the character of rock penttrated.  Railroad! Cm on Pair Ratei.

'      -_  The program prepared for the^clos-'  ing weeks of the exposition provides  for more attractive features than have  characterized any period since the  opening. Perhaps the most important  of these is the stock show, which will  be held from September 19th to 29th  inclusive. For this event there is  available nearly $50,000 in prize  money.  The attendance at the exposition,  which has been good from the first,  owing to a large extent to patronage  from east of the mountains, has increased steadily, and the increase is  expected to continue right up to the  closing day, as the end of the harvest  season will permit farmers who have  been too busy to get away earlier to  pay a visit to the biggest exhibition  ever held in the Pacific Northwest.

In the days long 'since gone by, it  was-sufficient for capitalists to supply  the necessary funds to lay the iron  bands into the wilderness���as th-n  considered-r-and await> the growth of  the new country to supply the traffic  for'railroads."    'As a ruler also,  the  --r a > .1 .'    '  settlement of new sections and districts  rarely failed to afford profitable busi-  ,'ness for the railways, and in the last  few years nearly every 'railway' on the  American continent has earned excellent profits, and some of them, notably  tbVC.P.R., Great Northern and Northern Pacific, have 'done 'remarkably  well/   "���   - '    ''   "<���..'  - But,'with the far western part of the  continent settling up, the. competition  of railway  lines grows keener as the  years come and  go, and  much  time  and money is spent in the effort to secure and hold-'good - paying  business,  both freight arid passenger.' To reduce  costs-of maintenance, millions  of the  profits earned  have' been spent in re  ducing gradients and curvatures,  etc.,  in  order  that'more millions'might be  earned by the operating departments.'  James "J.   Hill  gave  evidence of his  practical methods in going after business   by hauling-cotton from the Mississippi valley states for shipment fiom  the Pacific "coast 'to 'the " Orient,  the  freight- cars- being filled with lumber,  etc., from the Pacific coast on the ^return trip.     The C.P.'R: also gave evidence* of- the ' far-sightedness   of  its  management 0/ providing hotels in the  mountains and ,encouraging  in every  manner the tourist traffic, which it now  enjoys in such high and increasing degree.  What was the C.P.R. doing all this  time? you may ask. Nothing at all;  simply nothing, but looking on while  Mr. Hill was doing the very thing that  they should have done long ago���absolutely securing some traffic by securing an interest in the bluest mining  concern in British Columbia, and  which they knew was yearly getting  bigger. Yes, they merely went to  sleep over it, and let a good sized slice  of business slip through their fingers.  And Mr. Hill is already credited with  doing the same thing with the British  Columbia Copper Co.: but of this we  shall learn more later.  Finally, however, the C.P.R. management awakened and did it thoroughly, when the big Rossland merger  was being talked of. It is common  report that the C.P.R. in its sudden  purchase of the Centre Star and War  Eagle mines at Rossland, was only a  few hours ahead of the friends of Mr.  Hill, who were after it hot foot. They  discovered " in time that Mr. James J.  Hill was securing a lot of business that  the C. P. R.'shbuld have, so they fixed  the Rossland business very quickly by  buying the mines outright, and doing  it on such short,notice that it surprised  everyone in the country.  Are You Qoloi East.

When railways were first constructed into British Columbia, the managers were content to take whatever  traffic was offered, and incidentally  charge every dollar that it would bear,  and let it go at that. Take, for instance, the traffic of one mining company in the Boundary���the Granby.  It> required several years of ore hauling by the C.P.R. for the managers of  that corporation to realize what it  meant for the future. To be sure,  they noted with satisfaction that, lor  several years, the Granby was paying  into the coffers of the C.P.R. an average of $1,000 per day in freights alone,  But this fact did not make the impression that it should have done.  But, although the ! managers  of the  C.P.R'. had learned their lesson in the  Boundary, they were not content to let  the Rossland matter go with  the  purchase of the two properties referred to.  They wished the LeRoi also/which for  'years has shipped to its own smelter at  Northport over1 the  Great  Northern,  and  in no other way.    If the C.P.R.  could  persuade  the  LeRoi   management  to ship to Trail, to the C.P.R.'s  own smeltery* every thing would be lovely.    But Manager  T.cMillan.   of the  LeRoi, did not see it exactly "that way  ���that is throwing away a smelter that  cost'some $400,000  to  please" the C  P. R. -  Accordingly, the emissaries of  the C.P.R^ were sent over to England,  and  they "were so' successful in their  work that Mr. McMillan was soon out  of the  position of managing director,  but still on the LeRoi, board.'   Just  how  the  matter will come out at the  LeRoi  annual  meeting,'  soon   to   be  held, no bnecan tell absolutely, but it  seems  certain -that> the .C.P.R.   has  learned its lesson regarding the highu ff  strategy, of   modern   railroading, and  learned it pretty well, in the Boundary.  Whatever Uie result,  no   mistake like  that referred to will be made this time.  i_ *When the Granby wished a new  sinfr put in, or anything of that kind,  To(ijalmost a fight to secure it.

While  he was still undergraduate, he held the  position at the university as instructor  in   physics,   and   was also engaged in  practical engineering work as a member  of the engineering  staff of the  New  York, Chicago and St. Louis  railway.  In  1882 he  was  appointed  assistant  geologist with the Ohio Survey, and in  the' succeeding years'.he' served on the  engineering staff of the   Rochester  &  Pittsburg and the 'Allegheny & Susquehanna railways.. ~ .'.  From i'884'to 1886 Mr. Keffer took  up electrical engineering and coal mining work, but left .these employments  to accept the position of assistant pro  fessor of chemistry at the Ohio State  University. He resigned this position  to take the post of chemist with a natural soda company in��� Wyoming, and  in 1895 he was appointed superintendent of the "Ka Mima Mexicana," at  Seriera," Mexico.  About this time a number; of New  York financiers had been looking over  the then almost trackless Boundary  country, and having acquired a number of promising copper-gold claims in  Deadwood camp, known as the Mother  Lode group, Mr. Keffer came to the  Boundary in 1896 to assume the management' of the ' comptny afterwards  formed, and known then and since as  the British Columbia Copper Co., the  head office being in New York city,  Under Mr. Keffer's management the  properties of the company have been  thoroughly.developed, a 'smelter with  two blast furnaces and a converter  plant, erected at Greenwood, three  miles from the company's mines, and  it is now understood that the company  is about to double its capital stock to  $4,000,000, for the purpose of further  extension^, many of which are already  under way.  Mr. Keffer's principal are also  in' control of the No. 7 Mining  Co., Ltd., owning the No. 7  group in White's or , Central  camp. Here considerable-work was  done and ore shipped, but owing to  lack of. transportation facilities these  properties are not now being worked.  The company, however, has a bond on  a control of the Sunset group, Copper  mountain, Similkameen; on the Grant  group, near Chesaw, Wash., and on the  Apex group,'back of Camp Hedley in  the Similkameen. All of these will  benefit in transportation facilities by  the extension of the Great Northern in  Ihe Similkameen'district. All of them  are actively being developed, together  with the Emma group in Summit camp,  and Mr. Keffer has them all under his  care, to a greater or less extent.  Since the Mother Lode began shipping ore under Mr. Keffer's oianage-  ment, the properties have sent out  about 675,000 tons of ore, while the  company's smelter���which takes some  custom ore���rhas reduced more than  750,000 tons. The company is now  mining and treating ore at the approximate rate of 200,000 tons per annum.  Mr. Keffer himself is a quiet man,  and full of business all the time, from  the nature of h'"s important po^ifiqn,  being a member of the American Institute of Mining Engineers, also. And  the best indication of what is thought  of him by tbje directorate of the com  pany is the fact that he has held h"  position from its inception.

The attainment of railway  connection not only with Grand Forks  but also with Vernon, may not be very  far away. When jibe valley of the  north fork of the Kettle river is opened  by a railway, and the mines in its three  big camps are developed and shipping  ore, the whole southern Yale will feel  an immense stimulus.  The character of the ore,, with its  high percentage of iron and silica, and  its proved extent, are guarantees ot  great wealth to be derived by the development of the district. The mineral  deposits have been examined and favorably reported upon by many geological experts, among them, Prof. R. W.  Brock. All are agreed as to the immense value of the deposits, and the  desirability of developing them.  Th j resources'of the'north' fork valley are not only mineral. The land is  covered with splendid" timber, the val  ley is fertile, and the hill sides; suited  for orchards or grazing land.  There are no engineering difficulties  in the way. A railway can be con  structed from Grand- Forks up/tlie valley and through to Vernon, according  to railway engineers/ who have bet-n  ovtr the ground, with a grade of less  than: one per cent. There is already a  wagon road for 36 miles north of  Grand Forks, and another for 47 miles  south east from Vernon. The country  between is still without transportation  facilities of any kind..  The great value of such a connecting  link in the C.P.R. system requires no  demonstration. ��� It would connect the  fruit lands of, OJca^agaji^wuh the/markets of the Boundary mining camps,  would tap the coal areas of the Nicola  valley for the benefit of the Boundary  smelters, and would open up a large  country of great and varied resources.  The valley of the north fork though  known to prospectors and other mining  men is as yet little known to the general public. G. A. McLeod, manager  of the McKinley mine in Franklin  camp, has been spending several days  with his parents in Nelson. Seen by a  representative of The .Daily News Mr.  McLeod said :  "It is admitted te:ierally in the  Boundary that the future of Grand  Forks is bound up with the future ol  the north fork valley. North of iht  city for 60 miles extend large areas ot  timber, orchard and pasture land.  Within 70 miles of Grand Forks are  three great mineral.ramps.  '���The first is the Volcano so-called  from Volcano mountain, an immense  deposit of magnetic iron. Any part of  it is worth $2 a ton. That doesn't pay  there, of course, but with cheap transportation and economic treatment, it  could easily be made to yield 50 cents  a ton profit, and the amount is un  limited. ' But every where through it  -much higher values are obtained.  "In the camp are the Volcanic, Pathfinder, Bonanza, and across the river  towards Phoenix, the Wolverine, Strawberry, Seattle and Humming Bird.  - "That is the first great camp, only  10 miles north of Grand Forks, and  connected with it bv wagon road.  "About 30 miles farther north the  Franklin camp begins. There are  found the largest surface showings in  the Boundary. Few of them are as yet  proved at any depth. But wherever  work has been done, it has never failed to show indications of very high  values. A very important feature is  that the ore is all self-fluxing. The  formation is very distinct, lime, conglomerates, porphyry and quartzite occur.  "Further north, 25 miles, is the  Thunder Hill camp. One shipment  from the Waterloo mine returned 669  ounces of silver to the ton. Another  of five tons from the Thunder Hill returned 160 ounces of silver to the ton  at the Hall Mines smelter.  No business was ever advertised so  extensively that it would carry itself by  the momentum it had attained. The  fastest express.train stops after a while  if the steam is cut off���unless ;t is  going down hill all the way.  The best rule in advertising is to  make an appeal to human interests.  No advertisement is a good advertisement that fails to do that.  You need not say all that is true but  do not say anything that is not true,  in your advertising. //    i y//  Don't take it for granted that evrry  one within 25 miles of your store  knows everything .you have for sale,  the quality of your goods and your  prices. Tell them! Tell them in an  attractive, interesting way, and do it  every day of every week.  THOUSAN0S Of FAIR WOMEN  HERALD PRAISES OF PERUNA!
