The Boundless Boundary. ITHE PRICE OF COPPER
The following Ink. 11 (mm ths Leeds
Mercuryexpressesan outsider's oplti-
Inn of the mineral resources ot the
Boundary District:
"No milling camps in the Dominion
it Canada are at present attracting
more attention than those uf the
Boundary District. This dlstriot, as
Its name implies, Is contiguous to the
United States frontlet'. Mice uisny

"The 'BoHHdless Boundary.' to use
the epithet which its enormous nre
Mies have won for it, has within the
past two years come to he regarded as
the most Important copper-productng
area in British Columbia. The Boundary mines bave this year put out a
greater tonnage than the Rossland
group—808,471 tons to Septemlier 6th,
as compared with 217.887 to the same
date at Rossland. Fnr the conveyance of its ore the Canadian Pacific
Railway received W8U.OI0. or one eighty-eight part of iU entire revenue hut

<>f the leading Bonndary oopper cum*
panles. The company's freight Ull

Boundary ore shipments to dnte tM*
year are reported at 815,630; in Hm
the total production for the year did

estimate for this year is 472.000.    , 9
'■Phoenix City, tbe mining camp ad-
Joining the Old Ironsides, the Knoh
Hill, nnd the Snowshoe Minen, stands
nt an elevation nf 4,000 feet ahove sea
level. The ride on • glorious September morning hy the four-horse stage
fnun Oreenwood, which stands 2,0110

lierience never to •* forgotten, The
Granby Company quarries its ore (rom

on the mountain side, tie miners'
eall these yawning ratderaa tbe 'Glory
Hole*.' The nre bodies have actually
'wen exposed along a length nf 2,000
feet, cross-cuts have been driven prov
ing a width of 400teet without reach,
ing the fades of contract wilh the
country rork, and the diamond drill
■ins proved the existence of Ihe ore at
1,700feet in depth.   .
lt is no exaggeration to say that
teres of calrnpyrites have heen 'block
«d out.' We rambled for almut an
hour through the mopes actually per
forming the circuit nf these gigantic
'pillar aud stall' blockings. The sya
tern of mining is simplicity itself. An
inclined adit Is driven into the hill;
then a 'raise' is cnl upward to an open
surface quarry, where lhe ore is blasted and hurled dnwn the 'raise' hy its
own weight, to I* dumped Into tram-
cars at the adit-level. Costly winding
machinery is thus entirely dispensed
with, gravitation performing the
whole work of bringing the ore to the
hins for shipment to the smelter.
"The ore mountain at Phoenix is a
geological curiosity. The first tunnel
was opened on the 22nd May, 1898, the
Hrst tram-load ot ore left the camp on
llth July. 1000, and since then the
Oranhy Company alone has sent, half a
million Inns to its smeller at Grand
Porks, As development bas heen slow

year placed ihenreinsighl«. 54 million
tons; hut stupendous as this total is,
Mr. Williams, the manager, told me
that Ihis summer's excavations and
surface-stripping wnrk warranted him
in raising the estimate to the almost
Incredible figure of 70 million tons I
Needless to fay. tne ore ia extremely
low grade; hut itis practically self-
fluxing, and what with the cheap method of quarrying and fluxlhle nature of
the ore, the whole cost nf treatment
from crude win-sniff to matte has lieen
brought down to 12.60 per ton, or
even lower—the lowest, hitherto attain
ed on the American Continent,
The opening of this wonderful field
is largely owing lo Canadian enl erprise.
In tlie first instance the Canadian
Pacific Hallway rendered exploitation
possihle by constructing Ihe Columbia
Western Railway, a line about lfiOmlles
long nver mugged, mountainous
country, from Arrow Lake, westward*.
This was a piece of truly daring enterprise, as few mining experts three
years ago even dreamed nf the latent
mineral wealth nf Boundary Creek.
The Granhy Company, which has done
most of the pioneer work, IsaCanndian
incorporation; hut an American company operates the Mother Ijnde, soothe* nf the leading proportlesi while
round the hill from the Ironsides
mine of the Oranhy Company Is the
Snowshoe, a similar property now lieing opened up by a Briiish compuny,
having its head oflice iu London."
British Columbia is Literally the
World's reserve store
of Copper.
The price nf copper is probably of
mote interesl tn Brit ish Columbia than
the price of any other commodity on
the face of ihe globe, Our production
of copper ha* rapidly grown to very
respectable proportions. But it is trifling compared with Ihe supply contained in the province. British Colunihia
is literally the world's reserve store of
copper. The production nf cupper does
not expand as might he expected in response tn exceptionally high prices, for
a reason that It not far to seek. The
great hnik of copper production Is won
from low grade ores. These low grade
ore* require both railway facilities and
sinking of immense sums nf money in
development and plant fnr their successful exploitation. So, even
when the price of the metal is high copper mines are developed wilh a certain
amount of reserve, and of provision
for probably lower prices In the future.
On the other hand however, when
the price ranges at a good figure a process of gradual extension is set nn foot
which is apt tn he checked during a
period of undue depreciation in the
price of t he metal. There seems every
reason to helieve that Ihe present price
of copper is as much below the real
value of the metal as its price of a
year ago was ahove It. If Ibis is so
better times may lie looked for in the
copper mining industry of (he province,
and a still more rapid development of
its copper resources.
A very peculiar condition nf affuirs
was brought, about, in the copper market during 11. II through cerlain circumstances which affected the industrial situation In.MHO and lflWI. Industrial activity in Great Britain and great
Industrial expansion in Germany during these years gave the United Stales
a free market at highly remunerative
and rising prices for its surplus of cop
per, Iti 1801 the Amalgamated Copper
company undertook tn control lhe
price of cupper, and keep it at the level
tn which it hnd been forced. Ii failed
entirely to manipulate ihe European
copper supply, European producers
did not see lhe humor nf restricting
production in order to maintain prions
for an American trust. As It could
not manipulate the European supply
It could only control the American
price by restricting production or liy
finding some local m .ins of absorption
for the export surplus,
The price nf any commodity in a
connlry where there is a surplus for
export is governed absolutely hy what
the export surplus will fetch. The
lead trust aided by a tariff, and in con
tiolof all the smelting nnd refining
agencies has lieen ahle to maintain the
price of lead in the U nited States. We
do not lieleive It can do so much longer, but so far it has lieen very success
ful. The Amalgamated Copper com.
pany, unaided by any tariff, and iu con.
trnl of nnly part of the production,
could only maintain prices hy lhe ciude
and disastrnus method of itself purchasing the copper surplus of the
world. This led. of course, to the ac
cumulation of an enormous stock uf
The total Imports "f Clipper to the
United States in 1001 from all sources
and in all forms, amounted to 124.W8.-
HSI pounds, as compared with UH.SO.),
000 lbs. in 10110, with Kt.172.lMl pounds
in I860 and with 50,208.400 pounds in
18118. Tbe total value of the exports nf
copper from Ihe United States in 1001
was 187.071,448, as compared with$58,-
K75.4.W in 1IW», with «M,485,_.l in 1808.
The stock nn hand in the United
States on January 1,1002, is estimated
as heing at least 800,000,000 pounds,
equivalent losix months' production,a
figure much in excess of a working
slock In hand.
The hopeful feature of the situation,
however, is that, while the production
of copper even under the stimulus of
very high prices did not for the rens*
on we have given ahove, expand very
largely, the consumption of copper hns
shown a very steady Increase from
yenr to year.
The world's production of copper in
1001 was 511,008 long Inns, as compared with 407.200 tons In 1000, 488,803 in
1800, and 420,807 tons In 1800, while
the estimated consumption nf copper
in the United alone was during
1001, 882,781,014 pounds, as compared
with 856 801,121 pounds in 1000.
The conclusion of the whole matter
Is thai copper has been unduly depressed hy the existence nf a very large
surplus, but that, the normal demand

A change In the Provincial Cabinet Spoken of.
Vascocvkr, Nov. 8,-Rnmoris busy
once more with prospective changes in
the provincial cabinet. The talk IikIh v
is all uf the early assumption nf ihe
premiership hy attorney-general Kb-
erls. The political gossips suy tha'
premier Diinsmuir's resignation will
nnl be much lunger deferrrrd, and that
Eberts will succeed him. They have a
cabinet all rut and dried made up as
follows ; Premier and attorney general
D. M. Eherts; finance minister. R. G.
Tatlow ; commissioner of lands and
works, R, P. Given ; provincial secretary. A. E. McPhillips ; minister ol
mines. R, McBt ide; president of the
council, 0. Clifford. In commenting
upon i his change at. Victoria the gossips say thnt Eberts has been assured
nf t he support ofa insjorii y of t he pres
ent house, and the only thing delaying
the carrying nut of the re organization
is Diinsmuir's unwillingness to throw
down Wells, who in his opinion, is the
nnly man aiming his colleagues who
has attended to husiness ail ihe time.
However, Diinsmuir's known desire to
get mu of office may lead him to let
Wells suffer the penalty of his liberal
predilections. In connection with this
latest cabinet minor there is another

ition to con-nd the legislature, he will
introduce a measure to amend the redistribution act with a view to lessening the re presentation given Ihe Kootenay districts hy the bill of Inst session. Whilst there is a disposition
hfre to ridicule the idea of Eberts
forming a government, it is known
thut McBride is willing to join him, in
fad, that he made overtures to that
end during the stormiest period uf last
session, and thnt Tatlow and Green are
also willing providing Eberts drops
some uf the obnoxious features of the
railway subsidy bills.
Surplus   in   Postal   Department.

nf parliament, and which will come up
again at the next, session. Taking lhe
recent coal strike its his text, he showed that five months wnuld have been
saved in that case had such an act. been
in force in Pennsylvania. He thought
that much of the criticism already pass

The deer arc diminishing in nnmhers
very rapidly. A few years ago they
were very plentiful in the hills and
anyone who wanted m«at could always get it. Now a man may hunt
for many a day before he sees one,
and unfortunately this is the case not
nnly near the ton ns. hut also away
hack in lbe mountains the same scarce-
ity is apparent. There seem to Iw several reasons which tend towards the
extinction of the deer. One is the increased number of ranches wliieh occupy their winter ranges and drive them
away, another is the indiscriminate
slaughter by ii.en who hunt for market. List winiet, both on the West
Von and the Ketlle l.tver, nien were
shooting and shipping iheui io Oreenwood by wagon loud. Otheis were
lent to Hossland and Nelson. Tlie law
seems powerless to stop this ruthless
destruction of a valuable food supply
to the people. Does nnd fawns are r.p-
enly sold and the legal limit of ten deer
to each man seems to he no check. If
public opinion were in favor of the preservation of deer, then the law migtll
lie effective. The value of a plentiful
supply of game towauls the work of
the prospector and pioneer rancher
does not seeiu to lie considered or appreciated, If there nre no deer, then
those who are engaged in ranching or
prospecting have no other meal.except
bacon, und the expense of living
is vastly increased, The remedy for
this stale of affairs seems; firstly, the
limit often deer allowed for each man
should lie very largely reduced and thn
Bale of venison should ia; prohibited,
whiluafew game wardens should he
appointed to see thai the law was enforced. Whilst the prohibition of the
sale of vi-tiison would seini to be a hard
» ip lo those living in towns nml whn,
whilst unabie to shoot, stlll| like to eat
it, yet lo lliem it i» only a luxury while
to the poor prospector and rancher ii
is almost a neccessily. It is noi just
under the present mute of affairs to
blame u man for iiiakiugalitile money
by shoot ing, as lie sees the deer rapidly
diminishing and thinks that, he, us
well as others, niighl prolit by their
destruction. Iu New Brunswick und
the Slate of Maine, under good game
laws, hig game is increasing rapidly
and the same result might lie attained
in this province. Tlie protection of
the game should Is-gm at once, other

It is not fair that the nnt oral wealth ol

The school wliere thorough work is done; where the reason
is always given; where confidence is developed; where Book-
kkki'Inc is taught exactly as books are being kept in business ;
where Shorthand is scientific; where penmanship is at its
best; where merit is the standard; where the training in Civil Servick, Telegraphy, English and Cartooning wakes up
students, develops their powers and teaches them how to be
successful. No argument is so eloquent as the record of
things well done. No mortgage can corrupt, no thief can
break through and steal the knowledge of How to Do When
you know what a school can do for you by what it has done for
others is it better to trust to luck? Is it wiser to guess?
