'  )  .-/  A  i *���  'MY  tl  K  \  . : The'Boundary niines'liavc passed the  the Half million mark. 'Notwithstanding accidents and 'tinforsecn delays,  ,hlowly but surely the figures crept up  , until with the year just closed Boundary leads all other districts in British  Columbia with a grand .igregate for  1902 of   ' ton?     Under ordinary:  circumstances and taking- into consideration the capacity of the shipping,  mines and the smelters treating- their  ores, the output for 1902 should have  reached 650,000 tons but obstacles  which are more or less incident:to mining' in all districts combined to prevent  the outpubfrom reaching the maximum  figure. The Boundary" smelters .are,  dependei 1 on the Fernie mines and  coke ovens for their fuel supply. Early in the year, a serious accident took  place at the principal mine of the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal company which  ���seriously crippled its output., .The  smelters were practically living; from  hand to mouth in so'far as a coke-supply was concerned and when the. accident' was i followed by a strike; which  lasted several weeks the smelters were  unable to secure any coke and. the  smelters, had to close down. THe mines  of course'had to follow suit and mining  and'-fauieltiug wa.-, at a standstill .until  the 'strike was settled. -The Granby  coiftpany was compelled lo bl ivy out  two of its furnaces early in the .year  and these remained idle; exxept at  short" intervals until nearly:a/ -week  ,igo. The power to be secured from the  North Pork of the KeUle River where  the works are established proved insufficient to merit the requirements-of the  company and they arranged with' the  Cascade Power & Light company for  au auxiliary supply. The power company expected to be in a position to  transmit electricity early in the: year,  but delay in securing the necessary  plant and other obstacles retarded the  company until it was November before  the current was turned on. A: series  of accidents since then has further delayed operations and it was only for a  few days at the end of the year that  the Granby company has been, able to  run all its furnaces and maintain normal shipments from its mines  The other draw back to the bright  picture was the unsatisfactory price  of_copper during the year.    The coin-.  properties arc being worked and inquiries arc being made'for'others and the  outlook for 1903 in this regard is par-  iilarlybright.   ' ..  . Taking everything into consideration there is much encouragement to  be formed iir the year's work. A  strenuous struggle.. against a downward cdpper market, it "has been a  struggle crowned with success and  which gives rich promise of a splendid  future.  THOSE GLORY HOLES.  abling operations to be carried on on a  considerably largenscnlc and by c.on-  centratihg management and thereby  making a saving as compared with the  cost of several 'individual managements.' ..  ���v  panics operating the big low grade  mines to a large evleut expect their  dividends'from the sale of matte. Dui>  itig.1900 and 1901 the price of elect-  rilytic copper in New York was  between 16 and 10 ^j cents per pound.  In December 1901 copper came' down  wi*h a crash,1+ cents wa-> soon reached  and many thought that it had reached  rock bottom but earlyih 1902 there \yasa  still further stump and copper was selling'aslowas 10}< cents per pound. From  this price it recovered but. slowly and  today 11li to IP4 cents is the price for  electrolytic copper copper. A loss of  nearly six cents a pound   in   the  price  . of copper nearly put the low grade  mines and smelters out of business.  But the men behind them were not  easily discouraged. They kept pushing ahead as if nothing had happened.  Cheap .methods of mining and smelting  were introduced and even at the low  price of 11)14 cents they were abl: to  make a small profit out of the ore without reducing tne wages of the men or  attempting to do so. On the other  hand, much might be done towards encouraging the men who are pluckily  developing low grade mines. Cheaper  explosives, cheapei fuel and above all  cheaper freight rates, meaning cheaper  cost of living for the men would materially assist iu raising the factor of  profit.  These are the discouragements and  disappointments of the mining indus-  trids, but the law of compensation got  in its work. While the low grade  mines were being successfully .corked  tinder a low price of copper, the general  outlook for the district has been made  brighter by the development of high  grade properties in   the immediate  vi-  , ciuity     of     Greenwood. At      the  close of   the  year  several   high   grade  How the Cost of Mining was and can fee Greatly  ' '  Cheapened^ ;  .. Perhaps.the most important feature  of the year's work in the larger mines  was the change' which' transferred the  greater part of the ore-producing operations from the underground-workings;  to "'the big \ quarries contributing1; the  bulk' of the tonnage of these mines.  This transference had .been, in the' case  of. the Granby Company's Knob Hill  minej'in part effected in the^year ,-1900,  but it was during the year now under  notice that "'this'.:means..of- bringing  about ��� an indispensable reduction ; in  labor charges was to a much greater  e'xtent availed of. iWhen it is rejiiem;-  bered that this change, speaking generally, reduced ore-producing costs by  about.50 cents per ton, its vital import-  Since td;mines working on, a-.,narrow  margin arid 'maintaining a large -.'av;er-  age.daily ou'tpii lis at once evident. As  yet reductions in cost on mine supplies  have not been practicable, but there is  litUe.dpu'btv.thafc^hese'wiU b(j :;ihadf.. to  some extent during the' ensuing year.  The smelters for a short period had the  benefit of a slight reduction in the cost  ol coke,' but this was lost after .the dis-r  asterous explosion at one of the collieries of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal .Company last summer. Whether any advantage will be gained 111 this direction  in 1903 - will depend very much upon  whether railway; : competi tion \ ���-. - be  brought about, or .not.-. Should the railway proposals .of .the; Great Northern  or the V. V. &.E. company,' or of the  combination supposed to exist between-  these two, be .shortly carried out to' a  sufficient extent to give bona fide competition,; it is not unlikely that aredttc-  -tion-in-freight-charges-oiicokc^wi'l-be  secured even though the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Company's present practical  monopoly .'enable it to keep up it's comparatively high price for the-fuel-itself.  Still one more consideration additional  to a possible increase; in the price of  copper, induces hope for better results  in the near future. 'This is the recent  provision of cheap power by the com  pletion of the Cascade Water; Power  Cpinpany's power-generating works.  The possible effect of reported combinations and amalgamationsof companies owning dr smelting properties need  not be here considered, since these are  still very, much "in the air", yet should  any amalgamation, strongly supported  JitiiLjicially, be effected it will probably  be a step iu the right direction  by; -en-   -: "��� ���  THE ONE TONNAGE  -  Tlie Amount Contributed by the Shipping Mines  '..

'     ' .  THE YEAR'S WORK.  What was Done in the Matter of Development.  "'A.summary of the development work  done,- as distinct from-stoping and  quafrying ore, would not make'a.s good  a showing in total number of lineal  feet of ''sinking and raising and of  drifting and crosscutting, respectively,  as that of a couple of years ago. This  is in part accounted for by the fact that  fewer properties were worked in 1902  and partly that such mines, as the  Granby Company's Old Ironsides,'Victoria aud Knob Hill mines: and the B.  C. Copper Comrany's Mother Lodej  -which -were-f or-about=f bur���-years=prior--  to 1901 concentrating their work upon  the opening up and blocki ng out under  grounclof their big ore bodies, and  which together contributed nine-tenths  of ore production of 1902, now have  large reserves of- ore underground  which they are not drawing.on to any  great extent for the reason that tho  bulk of their ore shipped during 1902  was taken from the quarries. Yet was  there iu both cases a considerable foot  age of tunnelling done to get under the  quarries, and big raises were made to  connect tunnels with quarries and thus  provide chutes for the expeditious  handling of theore broken in the quarries and thrown down these chutes for  tramming through tlie ore crushers  and bins   above   the . railroad .tracks.  Similar, condifi jus ^obtained at the'  Snowshoe and Sun.set.mines. ' Thft No.  7 mine, on the contrary, did-little be-  sides.clevelopmeiit work, sinking to the  300 ft., levol and drifting on that and  the 120 and 60 ft. levels. The Jewel not  add much during 1902 to its total, footage,most of the ore, shipped having  been taken out of slopes.. The Winnipeg and Golden Crown during a part  of,the ye':Vr did some development worlc  until compelled, for financial reasons,  tolcea.se operations for the time being.  The Emma opened. an, ore quarry, its  underground work having been 'uriim-  portaat. The Providence did " some  sinking and drifting, but as yet its  footage, is comparatively'small.  .Of the. mines that were not worked  during 1002, the 'Dominion Copper Company's Brooklyn and Stemwinder group  are the most important. These are at  Phoenix and, having a deal of marketable ore blocked out, would, if in full  operation, add appreciably to the dis-  trict's output;-; The.City of Paris and  Majestic groupi in Central .camp, has  been idle for two years.- The Athelstan, which..was,among the shippers  during 1900 and 1901,' has' been neglect-,  ed:'for more;'-than.!, a year.'The Oro  Denoro and B. Bell, in Summit camp,  were ,inoperative,':as, ;tbo, were the  Morrison, in Deaciwood camp, the King  Solomon, in Copper camp,- and the  Ruby, the Republic group, in Smith's  camp. The Gold Drop, at Phoenix, is  waiting for conditions to become more  favorable for making a profit out of its  lovy-grade ore. The Carmi,/' dp ' the  West Fork of Kettle River, and the  Rambler, iii the same neighborhood,  were compelled, by.resaon of long-continued neglect on the part of .the provincial government to give them wagon  connection, to suspend operations.  In contrast to this record of properties unworked, thereis.,beside the high  grade properties encouraging results  obtained from their enlarged operations at the bigger mines, some little  progress to chronicle. The Big Copper'  in Copper in Copper camp, was at  work for some time and on it a fine  showing of copper ore was uncovered.  The Emma had been unworked for  about six years, but now it is among  the regular shippers. The B. C, after  a-suspension^of-^worlc-.exteudin glover.,  several months, is once again producing ore and, as well, prospecting for  other ore shoots believed to occur not  far from those' previously discovered.  The No. 7 during the year under review  achieved results in the direction, of  proving that its vein lives down and  its ore shoot has considerable length,  -these'matters having before been uncertain'.,; The Providence, situate just  outside the limits of Greenwood city,  produced about 170 tons of ore ranging  in gold'anci silver at values from S80.00  to S150.00 per ton after payment of a  freight and treatment rate of irl5.00iler  ton, and, with its vein going down  strongly, encouraged the opening up of  other narrowrvcin properties iu the immediate neighbor hood of  (ireeuwood.

Per Year ? 2-cxi  Six Months-.  l 25  To Foreign Countries 2 50  FRIDAY   JANUARY 2,'1103.  1903.  The Boundary Creek Times wishes  all its readers a largcshare of happiness and prosperity during the year  which Father Time has just ushered  iu. It ie unwise and unprofitable to  make prognostications for ��� the year.  The gig'nB of the times are very illusive. Circumstances which, are least  expected and cannot be foreseen combine to- knock awry all our estimates.  Although the outlook never looked  more promising we have a distinct  recollection of njaking the same statement on previous occasions and a  measure of disappointment has been  the result. After all, it would not be  good for us if there were no "downs"  in life. It would be idle <o expect  nothing but smooth saUing.  The record of the past year however  gives a|great measure of hope for the  future. The mining industry has  thrived despite obstacles , that combined' for failure and disaister. Low  prices for copper, shortage of fuel, unstable" government and a general feeling of doubt and distrust all militated  ..against Aheprpsperity_.pfJJw^Boundary  district. But notwithstanding all  these antagonistic forces, the industry  developed and expanded into enormous  proportions and no one is discouraged.  Next jear, the output of the mines can'  be easily doubled aud arrangements  are being made with that end in view.  When it is considered that in three  years, the mineral output of the Boundary has been nearly one million tons,  and that notwithstanding the setbacks  referred to, a substantial increase was  made in 1902, there is no excuse for  lack of faith in the future.  During 1903 there will be some big  movements in railway circles and the  Boundary district wilL not be overlooked. Mr. Hill intends continuing  his system into the Boundary mining  camps. This Svill give employment to  a large number of men and will give a  period of good business during which  the mines and smelters will increase  their forces and bring a sure and permanent business to the Boundary  towns.  Municipally, Greenwood takes a leading place among t!-e cities of the province. Financially, it is safe to say  there is no city in a better position.  During the last two years, no great  enterprises were undertaken by the  municipality, but a united effort was  made to get the city finances into good  shape. The floating indebtedness has  been practically wiped out, the bonded  indebtedness has been increased by  only S5,000, the streets have been improved, the water works extended, side  walks laid and the ordinary expendir  ture incidental to municipal government has-been met. Notwithstanding  dulli times, something has been accomplished without increasing taxation; in fact a slight reduction was  made in 1901 and a further reduction  iu 1902. The municipal house is in  good order and ready for a larger business when the proper time comes.  In provincial matters, there is some  hope that during- 1903 something will  be done. North Victoria has spoken;  West Yale will speak if given an opportunity. A general election is likely  to securejfor the province a sound,  stable businesr, governments---.-^.^  Taking everything 'into consideration, the year is full of promise.  Much .depends upon the character and  determination of the people who are  building up this district and province.  After all  The fault, dear Bruturs, is not in our  stars  But in ourselves, that we are underling.  Rev. Father J. Chiuanale S.

Many think it unnecessary  to'devote particular attention to the teeth until the  appearance of the mouth is  affected Ijy damaged, 'decayed or broken teech. Others  give the teeth no attention  till pain compels them.  The stupidity aiid shortsightedness of either policy is  evident.  Everyone who thinks a  moment on the subject knows  that food cannot be masticated  satisfactorily if one or more, teeth  are tender, inflamed, decayed, or  othervise out of working- order;  and if this be the case, the mouth  requires immediate attention.

Telegraph Line Sold  Spokane & Northern Acquired by Great  Northern  The Spokane & Northern Telegraph  Company has been purchased by the  (In-ai Northern and taken over on January 1st. When D. C. Corbin sold the  Spokane Falls & Northern railway to  the Great Northern, he retained the Tel-  graph system connected therewith and  extended to Republic and Greenwood.  The telegraph system was in charge  of Austin Corbin Ti with Mr. Michaels  as superintendent. It must have been  a paying- investment as a larg-e business was transacted at Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks, Republic, Greenwood and at several point along- the  line railway. As the Great Northern  is extending its railway system to all  points included by the telegraph lines,  a sufficiently flattering offer was made  to Mr. Corbin to induce him to part  with the telegraph line.

These additions   give a total of   seven  furnaces  available for the reduction of ore and a  daily treatment capacity under ordinarily favorable conditions of between  2,200 and 2,300 tons  each 24 hours.    A  second furnace is being  installed at  Boundary Falls, and it has been  announced   that   Ihe   Granby   company  in   ..T.'ingiiitr   f>-r   Mir  i.iereas.e   >f   its  i.iucn'.'vr io six.    A .uiuons will probably be made aa well,__to the furnace  capacity   of the Greenwood  smelter,  but no definite arrangements to this  end have yet been announced.  TheGranby company's additions and  enlargements, commenced in 1601 and  completed early in 1902, were asfollows:  The power-generating plant was first  increased to a total of l,10o horse-power  developed, 250 H. P. being for the use  of the city of Grand Forks. Two more  triplex pumps were added, each capable  of supplying 750,000 gallons of water  per diem for granulating slag and for  water jackets, etc. Another No. 8 Connersville blower was placed in the  blower room, making four in all, or  one for each furnace. The dust flue  v\ as extended 200 feet. The main furnace roomjwas enlarged by the addition  of a building 84x82 feet, providing  room for the fifth and sixth furnaces  it is planned.to shortly put in. A  second sampling and crushing plant  was installed with a No. 5 Gates crusher, automatic sampler, rolls etc., the  whole housed in a building 70x70 feet  and 65 feet to its highest part. The  ore bins' were added to and the storage  capacity of these increased to about  10,000 tons. A steel fire-proof structure was ��rected about 100 feet away  from the furnace building, dimensions  260x68 feet with the main part 45 feet  high. In this were placed two stands  of converters, of the horizontal barrel  type, each provided with three shells  72 inches in diameter by 100 inches in  length, and each stand having a capacity of 50 to seventy tons of matte  daily. A 25-ton reverberatory tilting  furnace, a 40-ton electric travelling  crane with 40-foot span, a quartz crushing plant and grinding pan for mixing  converter linings, three mould carriers  operated by a hydraulic ram, and  other appliances are iu this building.  The space between the converter building and the furnace room is covered  is and a 10-ton electric crane with 24-  foot span \travels between the two carrying the matte ladles. Behind the  converter building is an engine room,  containing a blowing engine for blowing the converters, hydraulic pump  furnishing the pressure to operate  machinery in the converter building,  electric motors, and other; plant. A  briquetting plant, for compressing the  flue dust into bricks for re-smelting  was also obtained.  At thej Greenwood smelter, besides  the installation of a second blast furnace, additions were made to ..ore-bin  accommodation increasing the storage  capacity to about 12,000 tons, ore bins  and tramways were roofed in, a third  railway track run through the works,  facilities for water supply enlarged,  and other additions and improvements  made. A slag elevator is now being  put in, to facilitate the disposal of the  granulated slag. At Boundary Falls  tbe sampling plant has been added to,  building and railway track accomodation considerably extended, and now  more steam power and another blower  are being obtained to meet the requirements of two furnaces instead of one.  The.matte from both Boundary Falls  and Greenwood smelters is converted  into blister copper at Grand Forks thus  effecting a considerable saving in railway freight as compared with the cost  of transporting the whole of the matte  instead of only, its copper, and other  valuable content to eastern refineries.  ���  V*  ttt-J rmJire rvwer  electricity.

The Ienckes Company alsp supplied a 14-3 Farrel-Bacon  improved ore crusher, 36 in.  by 42 in.  fitted with   chilled   iron   jaw   plates,  swing jaw. and yitman, having a course  crushing capacity of 150 tons (approximate) per hovr.   To drive this crusher  a 100 horse   power electric motor has  'been obtained from the Canadian General Electric Company, which also supplied the transfo3mers  to convert the  voltage of the Cascade Power Company  to that of the mining company..   Mine  buildings,   railway  trackage and the  general equipment of the mines have  been increased correspondingly.      .  The Snowshoe mine purchased an  electric hoist and the first half of a  Rand-Corliss 30-drill air compressor.  The latter machine has a working  pressure of 125 lbs. and is a combined  engine to be driven by either steam or  electricity. With it are two 80-horse  power horizontal return tubular boilers,  having a working pressure of 150 lbs.  these being the first of this class  brought into the district. Railway  facilities, building accommodation and  general plant were also added to at  the Snowshoe. The Mother Lode was  already equipped with a cross-compound condensing Coliss-valve Inger-  soll-Sargent air compressor having a  capacity of 30 to 40 drills, with two  80-horse boilers to supply power, and a  Jenckes' double cylinder, Corliss valve,  first motion hoisting engine, cylinders  22 by 42 ft. and drums six feet diameter, with two 80-horse power, boilers to  furnish steam, so the most important  addition made was to its machinery  was a 24 by 36 in. 14B Farrel improved  crusher, fitted with manganese steel  jaw plates, steel swing jaw and pitman,  capacity 65 to 80 tons per hour crushed  to a size not exceeding five inches and  a 16 by 20 in. plain slide-valve engine  to drive same. A Jeffry elevator, with  a chain of 20x9x12 buckets, to lift the  ore from the crusher pit to the ore bins  above the railroad track, and a 250-  Ivight Westinghouse dynamo, with a  25-horse power engine and a full complement of arc and incandescent lights,  were other additions to the Mother  Lode equipment. A small power plant  was put in at the Emma mine, and  additions to plant and ma'chinery were  also made at other mines  ��� GerpefatieniefLthe City-of  Greenwood  MEW MINE MACHINERY.
