 .s  A.  $  ��  Vol. 10  GREENWOOD, B. C. FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5  1902.  No. -53--i^/  I  IE!  Where Snowshoe  Smelter  is likely to go.  E  Most Convenient Point to Haul Ore  For Treatment.  The obsequious Grand Forks cor-  respandent h-��:-. been indulging- in  more hot air. Geo. S. Waterlow chairman of the board of directors of the  Snowshoe Gold & Copper company.  Limited, Dr.'H. Lawis Jones one of  theVdirectors and A. J. McMillain,  managing-director, visited Grand  Forks a few days ago and immediately  the old hot air story was revived. The  Snowshoe people are go&g to build a  large smelter at. Grand Forks. John  Manly showed them just where to put  their smelter.  '���-.-���'    .  Now that sort of thing makes very  interesting reading'but unfortunately  nature and common sense, aire against  the "conclusions of the Grand Forks  correspondent. The desiderata in  erecting smelters in a low grade camp  are-lbw.transportation..,, rates and low  cost of-treatment.i ;*'A miner and a  smelter to be successful must have an  o**put and a; treatment capacity of a  large tonnage daily. In the case of  the Snowshoe it is safe to say that it  will not reach the highest factor of  profit until its output" is at least 590  tons daily. Let us take this as a basis  of calculation and see where the Grand  Forks proposition gets off at.  The Snowshoe mine is situated at  Phoenix, B. C.  Distance from Eholt to Phoenix 9 8-10 miles  "        '���'   Eholt to Grand Fork��.i2 4-10 mile��  "        '��� Grand PorltB to smelter  site  3        miles  Total       -     25 2-10 miles  Phoenix elevation... 41680 feet  Grand Folkselevation:;-.; ���1 730 ieet  Difference      -      -      -      2 950 feet  Distance from Phoenix to Eholt ..9 8-10 miles  ';    '    "      EholttoGreenwood...g610 miles  Total     '-      18 4-10 miles  Phoenix elevation ��� 680 feet  Greenwood deration.. ..     .,' ...21450 feet  Difference     .-      -     .-      2l230 feet  Now i. transportation companies determine a comparative . rate by multiplying the mile by the height material  must be. lifted. * The rule is sometimes violated but it is basis upon  which rates are generally determined  and is always applied when competition or other, special reasons are not  found.  -Apply this rule in the matter under  discussion and we find that the Grand  Forks rate .is represented by 74,343  while the Greenwood rate is only 41,-  032. The present rate from Phoenix  to Grand Forks is $.37Jf per ton. Apply  the rule to'i'tbi-V and it gives a Green-  wood rate of 20 cents a ton or a saving  of 17^ cents aton.'-\. ��������� .. *":;  On a 500 ton aday basis, this would  amount to a saving of $87.50 per day or  $32,-^ a year which would pay interest  arid a nice dividend on a smelting  plant..:.'.',.. . ;.i  Grand "Forks ' is all right but nature  made Greenwood the centre of the  Boundary district.  The steam power plant lately put in  at the Emma mine, Summit Camp, is  now in operation and some nice looking  copper ore is being stoped' at the 75  foot level of; the.mine for shipment  to the Hall Mining & Smelting Company's smelter at Nelson. W.-T.  Smith is persevering with the development of this property though nnder  difficulties, the Mackenzie & Mann syndicate, which owns the larger interest  in this and several adjoin ing-claims,  pursuing lt-Jcustotnary dog-in-the-man  ger policy of doing nothing itself and  declining to sell to any one else except  at a price too high for any likely buyer  to think of   giving.  Council of Greenwood and  Phoenix Meet Together.  The Details of the Scheme Submitted  to the Visitors.  A conference between the municipal  councils : of. Phoenix - and Greenwood was held at the city hall, Greenwood .on Thursday evening last.  Phoenix; was represented by Mayor  Rumberger, Aid. Graham and Rogers,  city clerk Matheson, city solicitor R.  B. Kerr,: and chief of police Flood to  see that no harm.befell .the party. In  the absehce of Mayor Naden, Alderman Ross was appointed acting mayor  and there were present Aid. Caulfield,  Bannerman, Kirkwood and Smailes.  After the routine, business of the  council the visitors from Phoenix were  welcomed arid both bodies sat around  the council board" and discussed the  the tramway to connect the two towns.  Estimates af cost were submitted and  the practibility of the project discussed. Mayor Rumberger and the visit  ing alderman expressed themselves as  believing that the tramway would be  mutually advantageous; that it would  create trade'between the two cities and  be a^ great convenience to the people  of both cities. Probable objections to  the scheme were considered and all the  details were discussed at length.  After the   conference   the   visitors  ������ -  -,�����*  were entertained by the Greenwood  council at the Imperial hotel where a  tasty supper was partaken of and an  enjoyable evening spent. Those present were unanimously of the opinion  that the conference was a great success  and even if the tramway did not  materialize there were many matters  in which better results could be obtained by the active co-operation of the  two municipalities.  Tennis Tournament.  New Glory Hole Opened up  at The Big Mine  Result up To-tote in the Greenwood  Club matches.  - The tournament of the Greenwood  Tennis club has been in progress for  two weeks and is now nearing the  close. The final raAtch in the open  single event was played on Monday  afternoon when F. Lfewin defeated C.  wr Chesterton in four closely contested  sets winning thereby the championship of the club for the year, and, the  handsomei"Pim*' racquet donated by  Mr- F. J. Finucane the president of  the club. The final match in the mixed doubles was played off on Wednesday. A. N. Wilmont and Mrs. ,Mc-  Laine plus IS defeating A. W. Strickland and Mrs. Fair plus half thirty in  two sets out of three, both sides were  favorites for first place and the game  was hotly contested and marked by  some exceedingly pretty plays on both  sides of the net.  The ladies' handicap event has reach  ed the final stage and Miss Wood owe  J��15 meets Mrs. Ashcroft plus ���%.IS on  Saturday afternoon. ;  The open doubles has also reached  the final stage and Foster and Mc-  Laine meet Strickland and Merritt on  Saturday afternoon.  The men's handicap singles has only  reached the semi-final stage. E. A.  Daff, scratch, meets C. E. Merritt plus  15, and A. W. Striceland scratch, meets  W. G. McMynn plus IS on Friday  afternoon. S. M. Johnson plus ���% 30  meets the winner of the latter, match  on Saturday, and the winner of this  match meets the winner of Duff versus  Merritt next week.  There are to be some extra series  Match?s'~inr'o^ir"'ieveiafe'1,lbr 3ladiear  singles and doubles to decide the lady  champions and also an open match in  mized doubles Play in these matches  will probably commence on Saturday  "the 13th instant.  MMIM.  Practically Double the Known Tonnage of the Property.  ' The Mother Lode mine was but half  discovered until a short time ago  Within its boundaries new ore bodies  haye.deen uncovered which practically  double the value of the property. The  original work was commenced in the  Southern portions of the claim. Enormous ore bodies were opened up and  the Mother Lode was placed near.the  Head of the list of those remarkable  properties for which the Boundary has'  become famous. Up above* these' or  iginal working was a grass covered  bute that looked like any other hill.  Since the introduction of the quarrying system and its' very successful  operation the surface work enroached  farther and farther toward the hill top.  Recently open cuts were made at the '  summit when the discovery was made  that the entire hill top is Copper ore.  The body has been opened up for 200  feet in length and 100 feet in width.  The ore averages 3 2-10 per cent copper  and $2 in gold. It carries plenty of  lime and looks good to Paul Johnson'. -  for his  smelter.  Two big glory holes have been started  and from these 300 or 400 tons a day  can be easily shipped. These glory  holes can be continued down to the '  original workings below. The ore-  can be mined and hauled at an exceedingly low cost and having good values  it adds greatly.to the wealth of the  Mother Lode. '  '  Therncw---diecovcry-makesthe--mine���  one   of almost incalculable; tonnage..,  It would be difficult to,compute the a,  mount of ore from the- summit of -'the--  hill   down  to the base of   the claim-  several hundred feet below.  - Rv the first of January 1903, tlie Sunset smelter at Boundary Falls will be treating over 800 tons of ore perMay.    Albert I. Goodell, the superintendent,  who has returned from Montreal and New York, states that during* his visit east the Montreal and Boston Copper company owning   the smelter and the Sunset mine decided to immediately begin the installation of a second furnace.    Plans and specifications] are  being< prepared and the order will be placed m|a few days  blower, engiie, boiler, etc.    Before blowing in the present furnace, Mr. Goodell is steel-jacketting throughout, thus replacing the iron jacket,  a freSht  tariff from the various mining ctmps to the smelter and as soon as this is satisfactorily arranged with the C.

The -government has begyn to "do  right at the, wrong time. For years it  has been'the policy to collect' "taxes  where -it. was most convenient and let  the others slide. ' The offices'ipf mining"'  companies were visited with wonderful,  reipularity and substantial cheques received, to swell the provincial finances.  Sawmills-and' woodpiles ' were- also  closely watched to see that no revenuV  was lost-to-"the" government. Wild  lands 4-Veld ,by speculators,, crown  granted "claims" remaining imexploited  and other avenues undisturbed be-  camae it might- require some effort to  collect the taxes.  This ship-shod way "of doing business would have onlv one result. The  revenue , refused...to ..meet Jhe expendi-^  ture and*an:;ever increasing deficit was  the result.. vDuring"' the period of good  times the government could ��� .have  easily collected the taxe* but. the  amounts were allowed to accumulate  year after year until there are now.  --large^sumsi-outstandiug. < Money -is  scarce and many people who are anxious  to save their property cannot do so because they, haven't the necessary  money.  The government now goes to the  other extreme and announces that unless all arrears are paid forthwith,  . delinquent tax'sales will be held. It is  difficult'to .understand why after allowing taxes tp remain unpaid during  years of prosperity the government  should choose the very worst time to  enforce collections. The object is not  to confiscate property but to Becure  revenue;and *w;e think that this object  could better attained by waiting for a  more propitious time for. holding of  tax sale's.  THE OUTLOOK.  Even the most pessimistic must have  his faith in continued dull times considerably shaken by the numerous indications of a-big revival in the Boundary country. Mining is the back  bone, and -never in the history of the  Boundary ,-'. has the outlook been  brighter. , The Granby company are  making; active, preparations for operations on a scale so extensive that the  output of rthe, mines will be limited  only toy the~ smelter capacity. The  adoption of :new methods in mining  low grade ores of the Boundary has  lessened the cost to such an extent  that under the most unfavorable circumstances, a profit can be made.  With powerful electrical machinery,  with extensive quarries and with all  other agencies to secure cheap mining,  I the Granby and other compan ies will  after meeting the heavy cost of. installing,.the necessary plants, be:ina  position to pay large., and ..regular  dividends.  The Snowshoe Company after years  of successful development.- work has  decided to erect its own smelter, and  Mr. Waterlow and other officials of the  company are now in the Boundary  looking over smelter sites.  In Deadwood: and  Copper camps, the  outlook is equally bright. As the work  at the Mother Lode proceeds the evidences of a  big   mine   become more  numerous.     Only ���this, week, a- new  body of ore   was    uncovered.; *.- -This;  mine alone is capable* of 'supply ing ore'  to a smelter of  much' larger capacity  than .the 'present, one ..and  B. Cv Copper  company owning the, mine* and* .the,  smelter, intend adding., new furnaces.  At the Sunset too," the outlook never  was brighter;    Then'thVB/ C. mine'ln  Summit  camp is to  be  worked on a  large-scale after...lying idle for.some  time.   A large number of men-are now  .being  emjployed''there ���*   As *r stated  ip.'another column' the Jewel in Long'  Lake .company., will  also, be exploited  on   an   extensive, scale.

It is an axiom as old as newspaper-  doiri that in a town where a newspaper  is published every business man  should advertise in it, if nothing more  than a card stating- his name and business he is in. It does not only pay to  advertise, but it lets people at a distance, know that the town is a prosperous community of business men. An  advertisement in a local paper, helps  the business man, helps the town and  helps the-paper. It is rather strange  but true, that not one publisher of a  newspaper in a small town gets rich  by it. Every dollar he-receives above  aefual living expenses goes to make  the paper better. The more money he  receives;"the better the.paper. The  moral is'obviousi ���-. We will be at our  office every day (and every ��� night-if  necessary) to reeeive applications for  advertising space.  We have "made it a rule not to indulge in personal matters in the  editorial columns of the--Boundary  Creek Times, ^hat rule would-not'be  broken were it' not for the fact that a  little plain speaking is sometimes in  thii interest -of; the towni...

If these* subscribers get  other Boundary ' papers they would  note that the Hunter-jKendrick company has stores/.at Grand Forks and*  Phoenix but none at Greenwood. They  would also' notice, that there .are but  few groceries here and only one hardware store. But the-most remarkable  thing of all is that there is a brewery  here which evidently prospered for  several years as its advertisement  never failed to appear'and- also a.  wholesale liquor establishment but not  one hotel to sell to. The only place in  town where a traveller can get a meal  is the Gem Restaurant.  Once we had an hotel that was the  pride of Greenwood and we had other  hotels that boasted of their cuisine and  service but they disappeared from off  the face of the earth',' if the advertising  columns of the Times are to be taken'  as evidence.   ���  That the people of Greenwood are an  intelligent lot is demonstrated by tlie  fact that there are four stationery  stotes, the proprietors of which are  enterprising enoOgh to tell the people  that they are here and doing business.  Miller Bros., have prospered in the'  jewejlry business for many years but  since they ��� sold theirdrug business it  requires some effort to ascertain that  they had a successor or that any-one  else is engaged in the drug business.  Greenwood has no builders . nor  architects and this probably accounts  for the fact that it i�� necessary to send  outside when there is building to be  and this gives the architects an excuse  to include foreign material in his  specifications. Like all.-, other towns  in British Columbia, it has no doctors,  thanks to a.wise law which prohibits  medjeal men from announcing that  ;th<?y"are on earth. There, is' no livery  stable here and if a stranger wants to  Visit'th'e mines or surrounding towns,  he tnus'twalk.  *,. The list'-might be extended ad infi-  nitutnijad nauseum. The advertising  columns of the'Times are a libel on the  city... They do Greenwood a grave injustice.' ���������The��: are business tiien-Here  --and; plenty of Jhem.but they do not  appreciate ' the importance of"1newspaper, advertising���-nor do they realize  by neglecting to' advertise in the. local  ^m^mmmmmmmmmmmmmm  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  cf*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  Cr*  em  Capital, all paid up, $12,000,000.
