The consideration of the proposed
agreement for the taking of the West
p Kootenay Power & Light Company into
partnership with the city in the lighting business was the chief business en-
i gaging the attention of the city council
at tho meeting last evening! Tbis question was introduced by the reading of
the petition calling upon the council to
submit for the vote of the ratepayers
the deal that has boon framed between
tho mombeis of the council and ttu.
pov.er company. A.; was intimated in
The Tribune some days ago, the proposition for the taking in of the power
company as a partner of the city in the
lighting business is illegal, but the city
•solicitor has found a way around tho dif-
Jiculty 'so that the power company,
while not appearing as such, will to al!
intents and purpose- be a partner of the'
city in the lighting business.
When the -petition»of the ratepayers
calling upon the council to submit _tho
oy-law   was   read   alderman    Madden
raised .the question as tp --whether the
proposition {as, submitted   at  the .last
meeting of tlie city" council was legal.
Ho said he had heaid^it stated that the
'■relationship -proposed «was  not  m _ac-
cor'dance with the,1 terms" of the Mum-'
' cipal Act, and as the city .solicitor was
present he'thought it desirable to have"
n,n  opinion from him before tbe matter,
proceeded any further, tt r. ply to this
the n ayor stated that this pbace of the
auestion could_ come up later.  It was
, then Acc.'**Pd', ,"Ppn motion. of alderman
Paterson. seconded'by alderman Hamil-
to.i.  to ii-fic^uce a by-lay/, and upon
motion cf alderman Selous,-; seconded bj
alderman GillettXthe? by-law was intro_,
duced*and lead a-first-time. ..AsMjrtrpj*
duced the by-law differed un some, respects-* with that submitted, at ,the previous meeting<of'the otty-council, anc(
for * this  reason   explanations' were  In-
order. They came from the-.city solicitor," who explained that tho proposition
of the city council as outlinedsak, the
previous, meeting of the council -v^as'illegal, in that the city could not take "in
any company as a paitner with it in the
lighting of the city. Another fatal ol.-.,
section to the scheme as first outlined
was that the city could not bind' itself,
Lo   any   outside  company  to  charge   a
given  late  for -electric  lighting.   This
was a surprise to several of the aldermen, but thoy recovered their-composure  when   the  solicitor  explained 'the
manner in which he had got around the
provision  of the Municipal Act.  With
ic-spect to the percentage* agreement'ihe
means adopted by the. solicitor was to
figure out what the amount coming to
tho   power   company   would   be   under
■such    proposed    arrangement   and    to
—fcavo-this amount set out as'-the.amou-it
payable to the power company for its
_>brvices. The second difficulty wa. got
around    by   leaving   the   rate   to    be
charged by the city open. The amount
payablo  to  the company is  fixed,  but
the power rests with the company to
either raise or lower the rate. In case
the rate is raised the city will be the
ftainer, tut in case'the rate is lowered
the city will be the loser.
After the city solicitor had made thes"
explanation aldeiman Scions diiecte.

Stolen From 01.ic.igo Postoffice.
CHICAGO, October. 21.—Burglars last
night stole ?76,000 worth of stamps
from the Chicago postoffice and escaped
""without leaving the slightest trace or
clue. A tunnel which had taken more
than a week to complete was run from
the rear of the building and a hole was
.then drilled through the1 bottom.of the
"wholesale stamp vault. There? were
ninety-seven**1- small holes1 around 'the
square plate cut out and some of the
drilling looked several days , old. . The
stamp vault was only six feet away from
the cashier's vault, which contained
over $300,000 in cash! The latter had
evidontly been the "objective point.    ••
Postoffice inspector Stuart said: "It
was the largest^ stamp robbery ever
committed in the^ history-.of the postal
servico ,in this country. To get to the
vault* the men dug through the brick
foundation wall, and a hundred feet or
,so further-on-they encountered another
wall and this also they dug through. On
the way they met with a number - ol.
pipes and as the floor is but two feet
and in,'some places three feet above the
ground they' tunneled* under .the'pipes?
Their whole course is plainly marked in
this way. l The wholesale stamp vault,,
like the cashier's vault1 and r the money,
order vault, is'supported by a brick wall.

t'hery was air. tight In this the robbers
broke two holes possibly to»secure more

a dry battery, one of whicli they left be-
;hind. The battery and the wagon tracks
are the only clues, we have at present.
shot across the line only two feet ahead
of the juniors. The gentlemen eight was
about half a length behind. The time
was 4:20. The second event was between the academic and scientific school
freshmen crews and this raco up to the
last hundred yards was as close as its
predecessor. From ,this point on, however, the academic eight gradually pulled away and finished a good length
ahead. Time 4:33. The final was between the winners of the two preceding
races and was won by^the sophomores.
The gentlemen "eighty consisting/of sev-.
eral varsity oarsmen, >paced the-crews.'
The sophomores from about.half the distance down the course slowly but surely
crept"away from the< first-year men and
won the raco by about three-quarters
of a length.' Time 4:23.
' Canditates for Cardinal
LONDON, October 21.—Candidates for
the "purple" at the 'consistory which
the pope usually holds about Christmas
time, according to the Rome correspondent of the Pall Mall Gazette, are arising
everywhere, their numbers seeming to
increase in proportion' to the distance
from** Rome." The United States, for instance, besides the candidates of long
standing, archbishops Corregan and Ireland, two opposite factions.in the American Roman Catholic church, has on
this occasion, two additional'aspirants
for the red hat.'- There are ^only four
vacancies in the college of cardinals and
the American prelates are thought to
have few chances, of. selection,^ as, the
pope is credited with a (.determination"
not to have more than one cardinal in
the United States, fearing-that the friction and antagonism would be difficult
to harmonize and might be" fatal to.

American Competitor f. r R. n!ey.
NEW YORK, October 21.—New York
oarsmen are keenly interested in the
proposition which has attained some,
proportions to send Constance S., Titus,
a member of the Union Boat Club, to
Henley next year to compete for the
diamond sculls, says the Times. Titus,
who originally hailed from New Orleans,,
gained prominence last year when he
won the association single scull race in
the regatta of the National Association
of Amateur Oarsmen, which victory
practically declares him as the champion amateur sculler pf America. E. H.
Teneycke is really the champion, but
retire from rowing competition. When
ho won the championship race last summer tlie Union Boat Club honored Titus
with a life membership in the club. A
special meeting of the club has been called for Sunday to devise means for raising funds necessary to send Titus abroad
to compete for the diamond sculls. The
friends of Mr. Titus express confidence
that the mpney will be raised.        >
Bourassa .Ridicules Royalty.
MONTREAL, October 21.—Mr. Bour-
assa, M.P. for Labelle, whose attitude on
South African contingents  gained  him
much    notoriety",    was    the    principal
speaker at a meeting here tonight, held
to celebrate tho anniversary of a pioneer
newspaper.   There was   a  largo  attendance.     J.   A.   Chicoyne,   M.L.A.   for
Wolfe, presided.   Bouraasa's subject was
Great Britain and Canada. 0ilo took oc-'
casion to make a violent attack on Great
Britain for her action in South Africa.
He said it was unjustifiable and due to
Chamberlain and a few others,   He ridiculed Chamberlain and the royal family,
and said war had shown how weak Great
Britain reallj was./^England's army was
worthless and it was not known what
her navy was worth, as it had not been
tried.   No nation is now afraid of Great
Britain.    He  denounced  acceptance of
titles by Canadians and said the constitution should be so amended as to prevent   a .Canadian   accepting   imperial
honors. .He believed a connection should
be   maintained   J.etween   Canada   and
Great Britain.   He di*} not believe in independence .or annexation, as the latter
would be death to the French te.£$.4
' ■" '      Two Killed 'Outright.
WACO,    Texas,  'October   21. — The
fiercest street duel that has been fought
in this section since 'the famous Brann-
Davis tragedy occurred shortly after one
o'clock this afternoon on Augustine a'vef
nue, the busiest thoroughfare in the city.
The principals in  ihe  affray were  cx-
sherife T. Harris and his son, W. T. Harris, on one side, and Dr. G. Lovelace and
his stepson, Z. R. Rinolds, on\he other;
It, is 'said that bad feeling existed between the men for some time over family affairs.   Tho parties met by chance
in the Turf saloon and young Harris, it
is alleged, opened fire with a shptgun on
Lovelace   over   his   (Harris)    father's
immediately returned the fire with a revolver, killing young Harris almost in-,
stantly.    Lovelace then turned his revolver ou the older Harris who, likewise
was killed. Lovelace and Rirolds were
uninjured.       They   immediately   gave
themselves up and are-now in the county
jail awaiting the action  of  the   grand
jury, which is in session.   W. T. Harris,
senior, was for six years sheriff of this
county and made an excellent reputation. > At the time of his death he was
engaged in farming.   The younger Harris for a number of years was connected
with the Provident National bank of this
city, but more recently he has been with
the Cotton Belt railroad.   Dr. Lovelace
is a practicing physician of this county,
while-Rinolds is a farmer.   The principals were all related in some degree by
marriage.    W.t T. Harris, Jr., was unmarried, while the elder Harris leaves a
widow and two married daughters.

HALIFAX, October'ji.—The duke of

H. M.'S. Ophir at Halifax, N. S. Octo-'
ber 19.—Dear Lord Minto: Betore ieav-.
ing tCanada? I   am". anxious   to   makei
known-^through -you with -what regret
the duphess and'I bi'd farewell to a people* w!.io"by' tlieir. warm-heartedness and -
cordiality have made us feel at home'
amongst them  from the first moment"*
of oui arrival on their shores. I should.
like* particularly r to express our gratitude,'-for ?t_ie . generous ?. feeling > whicli
lfas' prompted all.classes to contribute
towards, that" hearty'rarid  affectionate
welcome which we have eveiywhere met
with.' This'has^beeni-o strikingly shown,
not  only _is .tne'*demeanor' of  crowds'
and 'the^general 'fnanifestations of. rejoicing   with , which    we, have \ been
greeted?,but <also'byJthe trouble^and
ingenuity displayed,in the illuminatio-is,
and street-decorations cairied'out'with-,
'such-cbnspicuouSj taste and success, .by-
private 'persons, as -well as by the gov-,
ernment and local, authorities. We are,
greatly- touched', to, find in the smallest^
and,. remote ??places -v through which f we,
passed £ that'great effort had been made'
by! the; inhabitants.ftp' manifest ^their,
kindly,'feelings'?toward us. I recognize
this >as a proof of-strong personal loy-,
,alty to .the throne,', as, well as the deep-,'
seated .devption ,on the part of the people ot Canada,„to ,that,unity of empire
which..the  crown ^.is^the  symbol.. We
wish to ^record-our. most ^sincere thanks'
to'/thevDominioin3>gqyiernmentt and the
provincial u authorities,   the   municipal
bodies and private individuals for their,
-generous -hospitality, Hheir  kind  fore-
?thOught, (and??.the, extreme_jj}a-rej;and
trouble'they haverbestowed on all"the
^arrangements foi the reception and accommodation of ourselves and our staff.
I feel that wo are specially indebted to
Mr. Pope, by whom so much of the detail was so ably dealt^with? Wherever
we have been the police,duties were admirably carried outiand.,we wish to express our special obligation^ the commissioner of ,the Dominion police, and
other police officials for. the important
responsibilities devolving upon them.
Short  as  unfortunately  our., stay  m
West Canada had to be, it'was sufficient
for us -to understand something of its
boundless   possibilities .and   the - scope
which  it   affords   to   those  who   with
k spirit,   enterprise,   determinatiqn   airfi
willingness to work desire- to seek, a
wider, less crowded and licher field than
that offered by the congested industries
and professions of the mother country.
I trust,that these po.sibiliities may be
taken advantage of in ,the future and
er country may come m larger numbers.
At Calgary we witnessed a large and
representative    gathering , of   , Indians.
Then and on other occasions addresses
were presented from different tribes. I
was glad to hear of the progress they
have made and of the contentment ln
which they live under the arrangements
made for their benefit by the l^ominioa
government. One of the most important
features of our visit was the enormous
distance traversed by rail and we feel
a difficulty in adequately thanking the
Dominion 1 government for all that Avas
organized and efficiently carried out for
railway journeys. The train built specially for that purpose was a maryel of
convenience  and  comfort and  nothing
seems   to   havo  been   forgotten   which
might tend to reduce the fatigue inseparable from such a long journey. Special facilities were afforded to enable 'is
to see the most striking points of interest in the vast reeions of magniflclent
scenery through which'we passed, while
we received every possiole courtesy and
attention from the officials and servants
of the company. To the authorities of
the Giand Trunk and Intercolonial railways, also, our special thanks are due
.for  all  the  trouble and  consideration
which  they  devoted  to  providing  for
the part of our jqurney which lay over
their lines and the efficiency and success with  which all the services were
performed. We hope that the public did
not suffer on account of arrangements
made   for   our   tra.cling,   which,   perhaps,    necessitated    some   interference
with the general traffic." I am specially
anxious to record  my appreciation of
the splendid   force   of   the   Northwest
mounted police. I had the pleasure of
inspecting a portion of the force at Calgary  and   was  much  struck  with the
smart   appearance   of   both   men   and
horses and with their geneial stoadine_.
on    parade.    They    furnished    escor"!
throughout our stay ih West Canada,
frequently   horsed    our.   carriage . and
found the transport, all of which duties
were performed with a willingness and
in a highly creditable manner.. The re-
,.view3 which were held at Quebec, Tor-
en^ and Halifax enabled me to-judge
of this in-ltyiin' paPacityyof the Dominion; and of the BpleHdid ipfl|9j-ia} ?vt its
disposa.1,   many   of   the   corps" showed
smartness   and   soldierlike. bearing;   I
.yyyas: glad to find thaf; a f^ld: hospital pr-
gftj-izat. oil, lias been p. ovided -as alsp a
company of engineers. I was much interested in our visit to the royal military college at Kingston to see what
excellent provision the Dominion government has made available for the preliminary military education of its military officers. Every country now recognizes   tho   necessity 'of   securing, the
greatest possible n.ilitary effl-iency in
return lor its outlay of defense, and the
material at hand should not be sacri-
^ficed for the sake of .inadequate train-
*ing;'and leading, which can best.be secured by a fully qualified staff. I was
delighted .with having,.the, opportunity
of presenting a large number of medals,
to officers and men for service in South
Africa and it was very gratifying to see"
with' what  enthusiasm  they .were  received by their fellow citizens., It was a
great, pleasure to us to be accompanied
throughout our journey' by the distinguished premier of the Dominion, ^aud
as It-- must have been "done at a^ great
personal inconvenience, we areJ''all, the
more" gratified  to~ sir  Wilfrid  Laurier
for' his" valuable help" and * companionship.'Finally, to lady Minto and yourself 'we wish to express our most' sincere, thanks for the unfailing-, kindness
■ and generous hospitality which'we have
, received'as your guests and also^for.the
'great pleasure and valuable assistance
-that, we   realized   in   the  presence   of^
either lady Minto or both your_excel-
.lencies during our long journey." I am
.further anxious to record my thanks to"
■ major Maude for the eflicient manner in
which he and the,rest,of our staff,dealt
with the'exceptionally hard work and
overcame'the numerous difficulties-connected with our tour, and for.all,that
they, ,-iave done to help me-and my own
staff. We wish it had been possible to
remain longer in Canada and by'availing'ourselves of many pressing invitations received from,different centers to
have;become acquainted mon_#intimate-
'lyvwith   its  various   districts/and Jts
people.  But we have 'seen  enough'to
'carry .away imperishable--memories vof

These men,  elected to ^safeguard, the interests of  Nelson at all times and under all circumstances, have fallen down before and are  now worshipping at the feet of a company that is doing its utmost to-kill municipal ownership of public utilities.  They do' this, too, at a time when the  city's efforts to secure a site for a power  station on Kootenay river is being  fought by the company to whom they  are willing to transfer the business of  electric lighting in Nelson. These.men  are willing to close down the city's electric lighting plant, a plant that is earning the city ?2000 . a month, at an. expense of less than $250 a month, in order  to enter Into a contract with the West  JS_ootenay Power & Light Company; bjr.  One of the best known public men in  .Canada, Nicholas Flood Davin, is'dead  by his own hand. The deed was done at  Winnipeg on- Friday 'afternoon,- yet it  was not considered of, enough importance to wire any r_ewspaper in Kootenay.

Among  other things, there is a curious graduation'in the fur-trimmings of the robes,  which emphasizes the fine distinctions-  existing,'in" the ranks of the ars'tocracy.  All the peers have been notified that  itheir robes" must be of "crimson-velvet,  edged with minever, the *cape furred  -with~minever-pure.=and���powdered_with_  bars or rows *of ermine, according to  their'degree."

The earl marshal's order  banishes counterfeit pearls and all  jewels from coronets, wliich are to be  "silver gilt, tho caps of crimson velvet,  turned up with ermine, with gold tassels on top. No jewels or precious stones  are to be set in coronets, nor counterfeits of pearls instead of silver balls."  The number of the latter permitted revives a' nice sense of distinction. A  baron's coronet bears six- silver balls, a  viscount's sixteen,' an earl's eight (with  gold strawberry leaves between), a marquis's four balls and four leaves alternately; a duke's coronet has no balls and  has only eight gold strawberry leaves.  Tho earl marshal next prescribes the  robes, mantles, and coronets to be worn  by the peeresses. These are of the same  material as the men's, with similar graduations in the number of bars of ermine  and balls.' The length of the train marks  the difference in rank. A baroness is  allowed a train of only three feet, a viscountess has one and a quarter yards,  countesses have one and a half yards,  a marchioness has one and three-quarter,  yards, and a duchess |;wo yards.  An Expensive Dinner.  Apropos of the death of Charles Crist  Delmonico at Colorado Springs, on September 20th, a writer in the New York  Sun says:    "Probably the most expensive dinner ever given at Delmonico's  restaurant, on' Fourteenth   street,   was  that given by Mr. Morton Peto'to the:  tea anu' coffee merchants of New York,*  two hundred in number.   It cost $25,000.;  The rarest wines and most elaborate decorations   were   mere*   incidents^     The  menu-cards were of gold, arid the guests ���  sat  on .silk   cushions   on   which'-their  names were embroidered. In the center  of the-table  was a  miniature  lake  in  which swam swans taken from Central  Park.    Clara  Louise  Kellogg  received  one thousand dollars ior   singing- two  songs at this feast and a present besides  of a diamond bracelet   The salon was  iimothered in flowers.

The Canadian  Mining   Keview,   pub-  " hshed at Ottawa, is slating the Granb.  Mining Company. 'It says that the Granby company is overcapitalized, that it*  i oro doss not pay to work; in tact, that  the company is a gigantic flotation to  j lob the public.

C.

In talcing up this matter I  tun more concerned about the effect tins  criticism, which I think'I shall show is  |.'iot warranted by the facts of the case,  nay have upon the mining Industry.ot-  *ho district, ttiajiupon the Granby com-  iany; which is?well able to take its owu  iart v/henever-its- management shall  tiinlc it necessary,to do so. The Granby  ;o__ipany's mining and ysmelting indus-  'res lieingrby far.the largest in the dis-  Boundary district prior to the publication of the Review's criticism, nor had  I seen any reference made to it in any of  the provincial newspapeis that came  under my notice. Mr. Miners leply to  my enqun y as to the truth or untruth of  the statement alleging a proposed increase of capital was "We never even  thought of raising the capital of the  company above its presont amount of  ?15,000,000. Why should we when we  have one-fourth of the capital stock intact in the treasury available "for the  advancement of the company's interests  should occasion arise?"  (2) "It is an undoubted fact that the  prosent capitalization of $15,000,000 is  enormously in excess ot the value of the  property."  In this connection I remark that tne  -shareholdei s.of_the four_companies_that_  combined do not seem to have thought  so, since they ratified the schemo of consolidation. I am informed that they received, pro rata, thi ee-fourths ot the  now stock and that none was offeied lor  salp to tho public.  (3) "It is a well known fact that the  total expenditure in cash both for pui-  chase and development of all the ���properties in'the Granby smelter group, in-  duding the smelter itself, does not. exceed one million dollars and when in the  early months of this-year the representatives of-this company,. J.. P. Graves and  'A, J>. White, were in New York negotiating for the sale of the property, or at  any rate exchanging pour parlers; with  the Amalgamated gopper Company having that object in vieAy, the latter could  not be induced to give as much as two  million dollars for the property."  Tp this I reply that I have definite assurance tJiat the cash expended to date  on the company's properties is about  ?1,500,000. Tliis dpes not, though, represent their value, for a considerable proportion of the original consideration for  the mineral claims was in stock, whilst a  large and valuable tract of land (situate  near-Grand Forks) was received as a  smelter bonus or subsidy  without  any  lift it seems inadvisable*that judgment cash therefor?; further, that the tow^of  '"hall be permitted to? go against ut, and Phoenix is partly on the company s m_n-  ;Urou"*h It'' against the district, by de-1! eral claims, adc__ig.: very largely to^their  |-_ult.'-.

IL-iatim the statements���of, rather, mis-:  Fakements, as most of them appear to  [jo to be���to which I take exception and  ���ike some comment on them succes-  Bveiv as I go.   I Will premise, though,  V stating that Mr. Miner ��� assured me  Kost   positively   that   every   statement  Meeting on the Granby company in the  1-ticle under notice is -absolutely take,  bave selected the following allegations,  W which I comment as under:      ���...  im '��� "Considerable interest is aroused  I. British  Columbia by the announcement that?:tl)S  Granby smelter people  B'ntemplates an Increase m their capital,  Sising it from fif tee:, million to twenty  iillion dollars and thos.c who aro best  Kilo to judge consider the proposal a  i|rcical one in view of Jhe past nf story  It the. company." *     -  ?. m  liAs   to   the "considerable -interest- * 1  surface value. : As to the alleged attempts to sell, Mr. Miner assured me  that the directors had not tried to sgU  the property; oh the contrary they had  . declined offers,.* .yh. ch they, had fully  satisfied themselves, were bona fide and  backed by the necessary, capital, for the  purchase of the property, at miiQii..higher  figures than the $2,000,000 mentioned.  (4) "No authoritative statement has  yet been given as tp the, average value  per ton of ore treated although the smelter has been in operation since la. t year-  Repeated applications have been made  to the company by shareholders for this  information but i+.'h89 bepn.refused for  motives of policy.".  Mr. Miner stated to mo that ?lo shareholder had been refused information  that he was reasonably entitled to.  Statements of receipts and ��� expenditures  had been submitter! to general meetings  of shareholders whenever'. required by  the provisions governing tho conduct of  the financial affairs of the several com  live only to remark I had not heard any I. panics now consolidated.  'When presld-  jentio-j'.'atall. -poadeof this matter in tbo   ing over general meetings be had on sev  eral occasions stated to shareholders  present that the ore was yielding a profit, hut just what that profit was the directors were not yet prepared to make  public. In adopting this attitude at the  present stage of their undertaking the  directois considerod they were conserving the best interests of the company  and were only doing the same as other  manufacturing concerns wheh do not  divulge details of the cost of production  (5) "If, as is curiently believed by  thoso in*the best position to judge the  averago gross value _of the ore treated  docs not exceed five dollais, it is doubtful if operations are not being carried on  at a positive loss." '    i  Perhaps the most effective reply 'to  this is contained in the following excerpt  from a en cular, dated August 12, sent to  shareholders with their stock m the new  consolidated company. "Instead of"  striving to pay dividends > before your  property was fully developed, it has been  the desire of your directors, and to this  end evei y effort has been made, to equip  and put the properties and plant m a  thorough condition to earn and pay dividends legulaily. We have been spending; nearly, ?200,000 in new, equipment,  during-the present summer, -which will:  m(-re than double our present output .'arid,  profits. All of this sum we are taking  out of the ground, not having advanced'  one dollar for the past year to do this  work. "It would 'seem that "those in'  the best position to judge" state .most  plainly that ���' operations are returning  profits, thus directly contradicting the'  suggestion'that they, "aro being carried  on at a positive loss."  (6) "It.is . . .;������'��� . culpableion the  part of the directors of the Granby company to withold important information  without'which it is impossible to est.-,  m'atoi the value of the stock they arc apparently bent on increasing and* which  in any case they are offering the public  as an attractive investment."  ���;Mr, Miner's statements to me.applicable to these strictures; may be-summed  up thus: (a) Shareholders have been  given all the information, they are entitled to. (b) The directors have not  even thought of increasing the stock,  (d) They are not offering any stock to?  the-public,?     .  I: desire to add that not only in the  Boundary district, but *when at Nelson  and Rossland lately, the simple mention  that the'Canadian Mining Review had_  attacked the.:,Granby company promptly  elicited replies, remarkable in their un1.  animity, in effect that that journal is  notorious for its. general hostility towards British' Columbia mining enterprises,; ���'...'.* .::*: ���* *  ' At the risk of making an unreasonable demand on your spaqe I. ask your  permission to here briefly summari.ct  tlie history and work of the Granby1 Con^  solidated Mining, Smelting & Power  Company? Limited, having a capital of  $15,000,000 in 1,500,000 $10 shares. The  QQHSOlidation embraced four Incorporated companies, viz., .the Old Ironsides  Mining ��� Company, Limited, capital  $1,000,000; the Knob Hill Gold Mining  Company, ; Limited, capital $1,500,000;  the Granby Consolidated Mining &  Smelting Company, __ imited, capital  ?900,-)00, and tbe Grey Eagle Gold Min  ing Company, Limited, capital $1,500,000.  The mineral claims owned by these companies are situate at Phoenix and all adjoin. They are the Old Ironsides, Knob  Hill, Victoria, Fourth of July, Phoenix,  Aetna, Grey Eagle, Banner, Tip Top, and  Triangle; these consituting, so far 'as  known, 'the "biggest copper mining proposition in the Boundary and probably  in3 the province. For'tome time prior  to the consolidation they were jointly  worked under the one general management, .The Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  companies did a large amount of development in their respective mines, and  haye been at work with,scarcely any intermission for about, five years. The  first Granby company, which was of  more-recent organization, worked the  .Victoria and ' built and operated the  smelter at Grand Forks, these reduction  works being ' thoroughly' modern and  most effective and successful in their results. Preliminaries 'having been arranged during the latter half of 1900,  tho consolidation was consummated  eraly, in the current year, since when  there has"been a gradual enlargement  of operations." ",  In the development of the Old Iron-,  sides, Knob Hill, Victoria, and Grey  Eagle mines *-2256 lineal "feet of sinking  and raising and 10,000 feet of crosscutt-  mg and; drifting���together nearly two,  and.a half miles in length of workings  haye been done. There has also been  about half as,much .work again done in  very large raises.and drifts which, although in new country, has been counted  as ^stoping, not as development. The  deepest "shaft' is down 400 feet and the  diambnd.drill has proved the occurrence  of ore down to a, depth   of   800   feet.  Large surface quarries have been opened  in 'ore which is known to extend about  3000"feet on the company's ground and  to have a width'of 300 to 400 feet. As  now opened the deepest face of ore in  the quarries is about 60 feet, but a cut  is now being run into the hill that will  eventually give an open (face Lof more  than 200 feet in maximum depth. The  railway cars will shortly be run into the  quai nes and there be filled with ore  by means of a steam shovel, thus economizing in the cost of loading.  Shipments of ore were commenced in  July, 1900, and during that year 64,535  tons were sent to the smelter.   The output foi nine months of 1901 ended September 30th, was 168,620 tons, making  an aggregate tonnage to the latter date  of 233,155 tons.   At the Canadian Mining  Review's estimate of $5 per   ton   this  would give a gross value of $1,165,775  With the tonnage increased to 1200 tons  a day, as will shortly   be   done,   these  mines will yield at a similar valuation  $600 per diem, but this is by no means  anywhere neai their limit of daily pio-  "���ductionr^Cwhich-it-ls-planned-to^next  year further inciease to about 2000 tons  a day) so   easily   accessible   are   their  onormous oie bodies     The  mines aie  well equipped with improved machinery  and plant, and have, foo, commodious  and substantially built accommodations  for about 500 n^cn, theie.being at present rather, more than 300 on the pay-roll..  ;?Tbe smelter is at present;running two  blast, furnaces,  these together treating  nearly 600 tons of ore a day.f Two. more  furnaces are overdue, to arrive at the  works, and these shou.a be in operation  before tho end of the year.' .This addition will increase treatment .facilities to  about 1300 tons, a day.   It has been decided to increaso the number,: of furnaces  to six early in the new year so as to on-  largo the capacity of the works to about  2000 tons of ore daily.   Two "copper converters wil also be installed here,shortly  arid these with other betterments also  being made will bring the equipment up  to the most complete and.impprtant cop.  per producing'plant in Canada.?  Adverse criticism. regarding ' the big  capitalization of the Granby company  may or may not be warranted, but  surely the proper time for this was when  last, year an authoritative '. public announcement was made of an intention  to inc. ease to $15,000,000 arid.(ndt when  runic, r usually most carefully'ignored by  reliable journals, concocts a story en-  ,'tirely at variance! with facts. The Canadian M-Eihg Revie.y.has now added to  -its reputation in tho interior mining  districts of the province of being '; a  "knocker," so far .as mining in British  .Columbia, is concerned,, evidence that  either ignorance, or prejudice so/influenced it tbat it did. not (take. the , most,  ordinary precautions to verify its infor-  ..mation before making sleeping? reflections upon the status and management  of an extensive and thoroughly bona  fide mining and smelting enterprise?

After an examination of the body was  made. Dr.'Macdonell said that Mr. Davin  had been dead about ten minutes.  The room when viewed presented a  gruesome sight; the clay of the brilliant  parliamentarian lay in an easy attitude  on the bed; the pillows on the bed and  the garments with which the body was  clotted were .soaked in blood, as were  the pocketbook and documents which  were taken from the body by the police  sergeant. Deceased evidently had no  baggage with him, but on a table in the  room his gloves and hat and part of a  (box of cartridges were found. The revolver was fully loaded, with the exception of one chamber, and the muzzle bore  the imprint of the lips when taken from  the hand.* All the money found on his  person was $6.80.  Up tilljhe   present   no   satisfactory  reason can*be assigned for the comnoUt-  tal of the rash act, but.lt is thought that  deceased must have become despondent  through business and political "reverses.  -He arrived in'the city from Regina on  October. 9:*and engaged a room, at  the  Clarendon.

Curley Mining Company for Tuesday,  the 29th instant. This is an action  brought by the plaintff, Smith, and a  number of other miners to enforce a  mechanic's lien for wages amounting  to $1540. The case promises to be rather  complicated, as the property is said to  have passed *from the ownership of the  company for whom the wages for the  labor sued for was done.  A petition was circulated yesterday  among the business men calling upon  the city council to submit for the approval of-the ratepayers the by-law embodying the agreement between the city  and the West Kootenay, Power & Light  Company for the lighting of the city  by the power company upon a partnership basis. Such" a petition is required  by the znur-icipal act bef Are any such  by-law could be submitted--and it requires to carry the signatures of the  owners of at least one-tenth of the real  property according to the last revised  assessment.  Eugene Croteau of Rossland is applying to the gold commissioner for the  Nelson district for permission to work  the   Yankee   Girl.   Canadian   Girl   and  Yale mineral  claims through the tunnel which the Dundee Mining Company  has run in upon the Kitten Fraction in  the Dundee group. This tunnel is now  in 250 feet and Mr. Croteau is asking  permission to drive the tunnel 350 feet  further,  which  will   bring him  to  the  Yankee  Girl   ground.   Mr.   Croteau   recently secured a bond upon the proper-  tics he is developing, and if he is successful  in ltis  application to the gold  commissioner work will he started on :.  large scale at once   It is said the officers of the Dundee company are not-  averse to granting the application, but  in view ot the tangle in which the Dun-y  '. i   No Cause Assigned.  The following is from the Winnipeg  Free Press of Saturday:  Nicholas Flood Davin, one of Cana?  /la's'  brightest    parliamentarians    and  -journalists.-committed suicide-by-shooting at the Clarendon hotel,  this city,  yesterday, afternoon about 4 o'clock:  ���  ���*.    The   news   of   Mr.    Davin's    suicide  spread    with    startling. rapidity    and  caused a general sensation in the city.  The circumstances surrounding the affair-are not very clear,, but the  deed  must   have   been   committed    between  3.50  and 4.10  o'clock.    Mr.  Davin left  the Clarendon hotel about noon yesterday and coming down   town   went   to  Ashdown's   retail    hardware   store    on  Main   street,   where- he   purchased   an  expensive   i evolver, * stating   that   he  wanted  it to send to a friend in the  west.    Later in the afternoon he returned to Ashdown's   and   complained  that the revolver would not work.   Mr.  Lindsay,  the manager,   examined ' the  weapon and found it had been broken,  evidently in an attempt to   load   tho  chambers.    He saw   that   Mr.   Davin  could not properly handle a revolver,  and promptly returned the money paid  for  it,  refusing to  give  him  anothei.  Mr   Davin again left his hotel shortly  before 3 o'clock and walked  down  to  the   Queen's.    At  the  latter  place  he  engaged   a   cab   and   drove   down   to  Baskerville's hardware store, where he  purchased a' small   five-chambered,   32  calibre bulldog revolver.    He informed  the clerk from whom he purchased the  weapon  that he  wanted  it for  target  practice  and  for  shooting  cats  which  annoyed him.   He said he did not wish  nny cartridges as he had plenty. From  Baskerville's   he  drove    back   to    the  Queen's, and thence to the Clarendon,  where he arrived about 3.30.  The deceased left his cab standing  outside the hotel door and went into the  office, where he informed the clerk on  duty that he was going away on .._._  west train, and Immediately took the  elevator upstairs for the purpose of  packing up, as he said. At 3:50 o'clock  the clerk sent the bell boy up to his  room with a letter for him, and at that  time he was apparently all right. *  Sometime around 4.p.m. a couple of  chambermaids thought they heard a report, but could not locate it, and no attention was paid until the; hotel porter  went up to the room to inform Mr,  Davin that it was time for him to leave  and to carry his baggage down to the  cab. which -fas still waiting at the door.  .Tiiere was no response to a J-noclr, and  Mi  Mi  Mi  Mi  ��_  Mi, .
