At that time Greenwood was in its infancy and there -was  considerable doubt as  where the business  centre would be. Mr.  Giese said "there has  therefore sprung up  on the Boundary  Creek ��� valley three  little villages, Greci  wood city, Anaconda  and Boundary Falls,  of which each  calls  - itself': the most advantageous and  therefore the place of  the future. |But as  they are all close together the supposition seems that the  whole valley will be  sometime one continuous city for  several miles.' "Shortly ��� after this report  was presented to the  government a copy  fell into the hands  of Hon. A. G. Blair,  minister of railways  and he used it  to strengthen h��s  argument   in   favor  of encouraging        railway development in this district.  Five years is a long time in the life of  a mining camp and the restless denizens of the little villages five years ago  rather laughed at Hans Giese's optimistic supposition.     During the   five  ���years ���prdgress'ha-sbeenSless'ra.pid'than"  many hoped; for and those .who re-  memberd Hans Giese's words wondered  when the time would come when the  whole Boundary valley would be one  continuous city. Rome wasn't built in  a day; neither could it be expected that  Hans Giese's long line of city life  would mature in five years. But the  progress made has after all not been  discouraging. Five years ago a wooded  knoll divided the little village of  Greenwood city from the lesser village  of Anaconda and Boundary Falls was  in the woods some five miles below.  Today the wooded knoll is occupied by  a smelter that last year treated over  400 tons of ore daily and whose capacity was doubled this week by the  blowing in of a second furnace. Neat  residences were built in the vicinity  of the smelter and these were extended  into the corporate limits of the city of  Greenwood and to the suburb Anaconda until the two village separate and distinct five years ago are today one solid city.  But what about Boundary Falls?  That is a greater distance away but  the development of the mineral resources of the Boandary Creek district  has brought it nearer Greenwood and  It is no] Utopian dream to say that development will yet make the three into  one large city and acquit Hans Giese  of having any pipe dream five years  ago.  Five years ago Boundary Falls  boasted of one hotel and a small store.  Today   at Boundary   Falls  there   is a  / modern smelter there treating* its 400  tons of ore a day. There is sufficient  ore offering to warrant the management of this smelter in doubling its  capacity. The possibilities of increase  in this direction are great. Other  smelters will be built so that before  another five years pass it is reasonable  to suppose that in addition to a long  line of city life in the Boundary Creek  valley there will be a long string of  smelters in the same valley.  &����� ,3��� 47* <5- (3��� **3S V& W* **3* ��* V* V* W* IP��� *j3��� *3��� J���  -~       1* -/ *** V. .    . .-<   , *  ���mM^^di} % N*L-si,w*   -.-w  THE SUNSET SMELTER THREE. MILES'BELOW GREENWOOD.  THE SUNSET MINE-  The blowing in of the Sunset smelter  at Boundary Falls this week is the  excuse if any were needed to look at  the bright picture of the future. The  event took, place after Some_��� delays.  Before describing the smelter itself it  is only right that the mine which gives  the smelter its name and also justified  its purehase and remodelling should be  briefly referred to. The Sunset is one  of a group of four claims, viz., the  Sunset, Crown Silver, C. O. D. and  Florence Fraction. They are situated  in Deadwood camp about two miles  from Greenwood. The Sunset and  Crown Silver are old locations. They  were recorded in 1901. The claims  were bonded by W. L. Hogg of Montreal in 1897 who afterwards organized  the Montreal, Bonndary Creek Mining  company. In 1901 the group was acquired by the Montreal & Boston Copper Company, Ltd., the.present owners.  The head office of the company is at  Montreal and its attorney for this province is Clive Pringle, Greenwood.  The officers of the company are president, H. H. Melville, Boston; first vice-  pres., J. N. Greenshields, K. C, Montreal; second vice-pres., Thomas Crock.  ett, Montreal; secretary-treasurer, A.  Munroe, Montreal; directors, H. H.  Mellville, Boston; J. C. Macdiarmid,  Montreal; Hon. De Lancey Nicoll, New  York; J. N. Greenshields. Montreal;  William Mitchell, Montreal, Col. G.  Creitrhton Webb, New York; W. F.  Beal, Boston; Thomas Crocket, Montreal; J. W. Allison, New York; Charles  M. Jesup, New York; and W. W. Coler,  Jr., New York.  Today the Sunset group is prepared  to meet at a moment's notice any demands made upon it by the smelter.  It can ship any amount of ore daily up  to the capacity of the hoist which is  1,000 tons a day. The facilities for  the cheap and expeditious handling of  ore could not be improved upon. That  the mine is in such excellent shape is  due to the skill and judgment of the  superintendent, Capt. Harry Johns.  Three years ago he took charge of the  property and the condition of the mine  tnday is an eloquent tribute to his success as a mine superintendent.  Over 6,000 feet of development work  has been done on the Sunset. The  main working shaft is down 425 feet.  It is a two compartment shaft four  feet six inches by five feet in the  clear.;..At the 400 foot level 900 feet of  work has been done. At a distance of  350 feet from the shaft a vein of sulphide ore was encountered carrying  five per cent copper and. $25 in gold.  This vein is from two to four feet wide.  At a point 700 feet from the shaft the  drift cross cut a vein of gold-copper, ore  30 feet wide. This vein is the ordinary  character of ore of the camp, a magnetite carrying gold and copper values  and assayitig about $5.50 to the ton.  The 300 foot level of the Sunset has  been extended towards the Crown  Silver, the intention being to connect  with the latter property which can be  done with an additional 300 feet of  work, Owing to the higher elevation  of the Crown Silver the 300 foot level  on the Sunset will give a depth of 415  feet on the Crown Silver. When the  level is extended an upraise will be  made to connect with the Crown  Silver shaft.  On the 200 foot level on the Sunset a  600 foot drift was run towards the  Crown Silver. In this drift the same  sulphide vein carrying high values  mentioned in the 300 foot level was encountered. From this drift three car  loads of ore were shipped to the Trail  smelter some two years ago and netted  $14 in gold. Another drift at this level  runs south from the shaft a distance of  700 feet. In this drift the big vein of  magnetite was encountered. This  vein is over 80 feet wide and has been  opened up in all levels to the very top  of Sunset hill. 'The ore is peculiar in  this respect that it carries 35 per cent  excess of iron which is invaluable in  treating silicious ores.  At the 100 foot level a double track  road from drift-to shaft controls the ore  from nine different stopes. Then there  is a tunnel through knoll 225 feet and a  drift at the intermediate level 445 feet  in length. The knoll tunnel is all in  ore. The ore body is over 300 feet ir  length and 115 feet in width. Above the  100 foot level are 250,000 tons of ore.  This ore will be extracted by means of  nine upraises from the 100 foot level  which as stated is double tracked to the  maid shaft. The raises are about 40  feet apart and having wide bell shaped  mouths will receive the ore with as  little handling as possible. Over each  "*^ise"has bVeri'plaw  eigh inches apart. The ore is "bull  dozed" or hammer broken so that any  pieces passing through the timbers are  of a suitable size for sending to the  smelter. As has already been stated,  any; desired quantity of ore caa be sent  from these stopes. In addition to these  the chutes of high grade ore must not  \ be forgotten. This vein which is irom  i two *t�� four feet wide has been cut at  the 200 and 300 foot levels.  On the Crown Silver the shaft is  down 262 feet. At 150 feet a level was  run 145 feet, and at 250 feet, 607 feet of  work has been done. The ledge.in the  Crown Silver is from 30 to 35 feet wide  and carries ore similar to that found ia  the big ledge of the Sunset. A suitable "glory hole" site is found north  of the shaft so that this style of mining can be adopted if so dssired.  ORE VALUES  A good idea of the ore values to be  found in the Sunset and the Crown  Silver is formed from the following  assays madefy M. Galbraith, Bs. C,  the company's assayer and engineer.

Messrs. Price Brothers of Quebec, th* "  principal shareholders in the Standard  company then decided to go no further  and took possession of the smclter'and  mines under a mortgage forjlarge sums  of ; money . advanced by them. The  Montreal & Boston Copper company/  engaged H.C. Bellinger, the famotu  smelter expert, to (throughly examine  the smelting plant and report aa to the  feasibility of converting it into a  modern up-to-date smelter. Mr. Bellinger reported that the plant could be  made into a first class aatlter aad the  Montreal A Boston Copper company  purchased from tqe Price Broa. Albert  I. Goodell of Colorado was appointed  superintendent and under his -guidance  the necessary alteratioaa have beca  made. Additional machinery waa  ordered, alterations, were made in the  buildings, the ore bins and the railway  tracks until today t& snelter is lacking in notningthat will facilitate the  economical handling, and treatment of  ore.  The main building at tbe amelter iv  182x120 and 80 feet in height. On the  west side is the sampling department  which has been ..-greatly improved.  Originally there waa in thia depart*  ment two 36 inch, and two 48 inch  samplers a 7x10 Blake Rock crusher,  and two sets of 12x20 rolls and two belt  elevators. East of the sample mill  were placed the bins ftrthe sample  discard, next were located two parallel  rows of ore storage bine, eight in a  row and each bin 34x10 feet; south of  these for storage of lime and coke, tha  whole group of bina occupying ��h*  central portion of the building north  and south. By the new management  the sampling mill building hae been  enlarged, a No. 5 Gatei rock crusher  and a Bridgman sampler hare been  added. More storage bins hare been  erected on the west side of the building  and the railwar tracks extended to the  southern end of the worki, The whole  has been arranged so that there ia no  handling of ore from the time it learea  the railway until it enter* tbe furnace.

But it  sometimes happens that these business  men have rather-exaggerated ideas regarding the amount of business to be  done. -They establish themselves''in  towns that are already overdoiie. In  mining camps particularly, towns have  a tendency to grow faster than the  producing, population. .Business men  are not doing the amount oi business  they expected and a ciy of dull times is  the result. Now times may not be dull  at all. Progress may be as rapid as  would be reasonably hoped foi but because of the too man} who expected  the producers of wealth to maintain  them, there is not enough to go round.  This is what happens in many mining-  towns and this is what happened to  .Greenwood and.other towns in the  Boundary.  There are two remedies for this slate  of affairs and often the two leuiedies  go together. The one is that some  get discouraged and leave, some get  broke   and  are   foicecj   to leave,  and  sometimes combi lationi.   are  affected  *.*  that lessen  the  nrtmber who must be  maintained by the producing- class.  The other remedy is a more pleasant  one to'^take. Increased development  means an increased payroll and-.a-con-  sequent increase of men producing  wealth. This increase of producing-  men men means increased business in  the city.  This brings us back to the text of  this short sermon "Inci eased Smelting." I^ast week one furnace at Greenwood was treating about 400 tons a  day. Thia week three iumuces are  treating nearly 1200 tons a day. Increased smelting means uici eased* mining, increased payrolls, increased business and better times. Times have  been w*hat,is.called dull in. Greenwood  not,because .there  was   not*   alartre  : * *     j **-**  vo." jinie-' of business to do but because  there we're too many people to doit.  As this volume of business increases,  .*therj3alam:e.i.pf_trad.eji.is^secured.-and.  good times are the result. .  '.* It is a hopeful sign to see new smelters blown in.

After a while it was discovered that it was more convenient .aud.  more profitable to divide these various  callings and one man:beoame a' tailor  for   several,   while . another ' became  baker   for   a    number.      For   .many  * ��������� "    *t   generations this practice has been enlarged upon until today there are  numerous trades and professions, all  catering to the wants'of man. Now it  sometimes happens ..that (the proper  balance-is not maintained and there  are too many or too few bakers, tailors  and candle'"'stick maker's in the community which, they serve. -If too few  they are .-likely to charge exorbitant  prices and otherwise work a hardship  on thbse they are supposed-to serve, if  too many business with* them is not  good .and.hard times are the result.  In communities such as this a cer.  tain number of * people are producing  wealth arid many 'more live on them.  The greater the number producing  wealth,  ,the * larger    the    community  occupation, they certainly appeal to  the best that is in society. They  should never be allowed to pn.ss what  is at best a miserable existence: without anyone to care or provide for them.  *^I��J��J��t"J>��J..J��.i��.j����j.vj.��j��*.^^^*Mj..j.��5>.';.i  r .

Last week at the  Knob Hill mine J. McGluskey, a single  man .about 40 years of age, lost both  his eyes through a premature explos  ion. Other accidentsof similar serious  nature have happened and are likely  to occur in the future while the business of mining is carried on. Surely  these unfortunate men are enii-tled to  some care and protection.

It has a nominal  capacity of ,300 tons but with the self-  fluxing character of.the: ores here, this  should be increased to at least 400 tons.

There is also a powerful  force pump and plant at Boundary  creek which can be utilized in case of  fire or as an auxiliary to the flttnie  which carries water to the smelter.  The blowing in of the smelter was  delayed by the non-arrival;of the new  machinery. However everything wain place at last and early Thursday  morning* the furnace was blown in.

The Siio-.yshi.-.*  ore ean be readily blended with ihe  Sunset. Owing.to the large excess o-'  iron in the Sunset ore, this smeller is  in a position to handle a larger  quantity of the silicious ores of Republic than any other smelter.
