Some Facts   on   This   Proposition
That Will Prove Very
To Discontinue llie Route.
It has been stated that the post office
department will discontinue th ■ old mail
oute between Pott Steele and Windermere, Since the building of Ihe rail ■
road through South 1*0at Kooteuay, I
conditions have materially changed and
ihis route, which costs the government
about $[500 a year, returns a revenue of
about $28 As the need lur it has been
greatly diminished by changed conditions, the postal authorities feel that it
would be an Imposition upon tbe country to further maintain it.

Phoenix Pioneer: ll is not such a long
time since the investing public would
scarcely deign to even consider a low
grade mining proposition, it mattered
nut how great a tonnage was in sight the
investor would'tiot touch it [f the values
per ton were low, say under fm Iu
tact ihe best mines iu the Boundary today were repeatedly turned down by ex
perts   uf standing simply   because the
profit per ton was so small.   Ii seemed
to mutter but liltle if llie paystreak was
small, if only the values were high.
Then it was easy to secure capital.
But of late years this state ol affairs is
gradually changing, and lar sighted into n are beginning to realize that
some of the greatest ami moat permanent dividend payers in the world are low
grade propositions—III!Ilea, the gross
value of whose ore would nut run more
than $5 per ton, and oftentimes no more
than $2 i-nil $j per ton It was ut first
thought that the difficulties of excavating the ore from high guide veins more
than counterbalanced their richness
while un the oilier hand llie ease with
-vhicl) the low grade oies could be
luarrted out of the wide veins did not
'umpensate fur their poverty.
In the Boundary country the Miner-
Graves syndicate  were   laughed at   for-
erly because they attempted to make
ore pay that would nm as low hs $5 per
ton, yet the Grauby company, which the
syndicate organized with a capital of
$15,000,000, is today successfully treating
much ore thut has no greater value than
that. Not only is this a fact, but it is
more than probable that when tbe
Grauby company, gets to the stage
where 2,000 tons of ore nre run through
the reduction works every day, a fair
profit can be had from ore wilb even leas
At the famous Treadwell mine, on
Douglas Island, Alaska, the average
value of tbe ore is said to run only {2 13
per ton. but the net profit in working
the mine $1,21 per ton. Of course the
property is operated on a gigantic scale,
and tbe profits in, the Bhape of annual
lividends, are enormous, putting it in

In Michigan, copper ore that runs
about $2 pei luu is mined and at a price
which pays immense profits to the own-
rs, who pocket their dividends with the
greatest of regularity. Iu thai section It
is not merely one mine, but a number of
them that do this, as is now well known.
The operators estimate that it takes
about ten years of steady development to
bring a mine to a dividend paying basis,
on the average, and tbey seem well content to stay with them
For many years iu California a low
grade mine could not get a purchaser at
any price, but ol late the case has been
different, and this condition is beginning to obtain to a greater extent all
through tbe mining regions of tbe
Recently the snug sum of $500,000
was paid for a group of low grade claims
on the Colorado river, by a wealthy
syndicate, headed by Senator John P.
Jones. The purchasers figure on getting
not more than f3 per ton from the ore,
and anticipate a monthly output of at
least $100,000 after they get the reduction plant capable of handling 1,000 tons
per day in operation, which tbey are
now woikiug mi
Nu one nowadays doubts tbe existence
of almost unlimited quantities of low
grade ore in the several tumps in the
Boundary, Gradually even the most
conservative ure beginning to realize that
there is a fair margin ol profit in tbisoie
il worked on a sufficiently large scale.
Aaa matter of fact, we are but just !«*■
ginning to see the dawn ol mining operations in this mosi favored portion ol the
province. In another five years or leas,
ihe most sanguine predictions aie likely
lobe eclipsed. Tbe capabilities of this
section for tbe production ol ore seem to
be limited only by the amount of capital
