Melville, ol" Boston,Vice-  President of- the Dominion Copper Co. and M. M.

With the  I officials of the Company here,:  they have gone over the Sunset j  mine as well is the. Smelter at  Bouudary Falls. lion. Warner  Miller was detained iu New York  on account of poor health. '   !  "The plans for the enteusion of ���  the Company's operations at Bonn j  dary Falls are in the hands of  the directors," said Mr. Johuson  this morning. It is likely that  all the companies will open np  together when the market stniigh-  tens out. Shown the report of  the Grand Forks correspondent  of the Nelson Canadian ' of the  alleged mergers of the different  companies, Mr. Johnson declared that there was nothing at all  in it.  Vice-President Melville had only one word to express his opinion  of the article in question, !'Crazy"  he said as he finished reading it.'  The mines of the Company are  being kept in excellent shape and  work will be continued as soon as  operations generally .oyer the  copper fields of the Hinted States  are resumed. The officials of the  Company expect to leave the  Boundary tomorrow'on their return trip.

Thex  are~fftlere"stctl in the now famous  French 'Colony which is to make  Carmi a thronging metropolis.  The result of their trip is that  next spring* 300 families will go  on some C.P.R. lands purchased  by Father Ferroux himself. 2,500  are at the- mouth of Wilkinson  Creek and 2,500 in the Kettle  River Valley above carmi. These  lands lie on either side of certain  to  lands in the possession of Jas. C.  Dale,,.���which it is tlie intention of  the colonists to take up at the  earliest possible moment.  Father Ferroux has secured a  coJi.tr.acLfor,,ihc,suppiy^fJ-00v0.Q.0L  ties to be delivered to the C.P.R.  at Midway. Twenty-five .men  will be sent in immediately to begin- taking these out. They will  work under James C. Dale.  On Tuesday all the. minos of  the Granby Company at Phoenix,  the Snowshoe mine of the Consolidated, and all the mine*; of the  B. C Copper Co. . practically  ceased operations. The smelter  at Grand Forks is also aaid to  have closed four of its eight  furnaces. The smelter at Trail  is still taking ore from Rossland  and Moyie, where the mines are  being worked as usual. __  The only interview granted by  any of the managers of the  mining companies since the occurrence up ' till today is that  given by Jay P. Graves- in Spokane After speaking of the  general curtailuientof production  which is general over the States,  Mr. Graves said;  "We were asked to come in  with them and reduce-our production, and it appears to us to  be advisable under the circumstances. As our ores_- are low  grade we could not reduce our  tonnage aud operate at' a profit  so we decided to close down until  the situation  improves.;   At  the  prevailing market price of copper  we can not continue operations at  the present cost of production."  J. E. McAllister, managing  director of the B. C. Copper Co.;  when asked today ot the reason  of the closing down of the mines  and probably of the smelter of  the copper companies, said he  could speak only for his own  company. Continuing Mr. McAllister said:  - "We have instructions from  the executive to cease all operations.everywhere. That applies  to all mines and reduction work  as soon as the ore in the bins is  run out.  "The reason, X take it from  our books,.is that the cost of production as against what we receive does not permit us to pay  fair interest on the investment  we have and continue operations  with safety. Operations will be  resumed as soon as the cost of  supplirs, transportation find the  cost and efficiency of labor will  permit of work being carried on  on a business basis."  ���tt  *ee  THE THREE LINKS  9-  WATCHMAKERS AND JEWELLERS  Copper Street Greenwood  'i  A wire, received in Greenwood  on Saturdaj- night last, cancelled  -the engagements of the directors  of the Crescent Mininig.-Co. and  of Cok~ nickesoH-' The tour "of  inspection which they were to  makc-ba5*'Deen''p"3St'p'o'netl���UTir'Tt"  is definitely stated that this does  not mean the postponement of  work on the mine.  "As soon as the plant is accepted and turned over to the company, work will be commenced  in real earnest, without waiting  for the visit of the officiails," was  the statement of an official of the  company yesterday.-  - "Work cu both the Strathmore  and the Freemoiit mines will be.  carried right aloug," said A'ex  Miller of Spokane to The Times  on WednAsday..'.^.'OnJ.he._Strath-  more we'are drifting at about the  200 foot le.veJL---T.he_Jedg-e.-a ver-  mmg Progress.!  tyty ty ty ty ty ty ty "t, a ty ty $ �� #����� ty a is ty ty a ty ty g, 51  L. W. Hutton, of Burke,Idaho,  interviewed in Spokane this week  about the Copper Mountain property at Chesaw, Wash., said :���  "I have just returned from my  trip to the Boundary district,  where I examined the properties  of the Grant Consolidated com-  ipany on Copper mountain. I  found the property better than  represented. It has a solid body  of copper ore 2*) feet wide at a  depth of 35 feet.  "Two hundred tons of ore have  been shipped from this level,that  gave a net value of $ IS. 75 a ton.  At present all ore that is shipped  must be hauled 15 miles over a  mountain road. It is proposed to  construct a. new wag-on road that  will shorten the haul to seven or  p.ig'ht miles.  "The mine is equipped with a  five-drill air compressor, and employs about 17- men. A lower  tunnel is being run that will cut  the ore 375 feet -below the present  one, which is in about 500 feet,-  The formation is a diorite and  very hard."  aging ten inches inches in thickness, was cut last week. This  ledge was struck at a distance of  200 feet from the shaft. It consists of well mineralized , quartz  and looks very good.  "At the Freemont we are sinking on the ledge and are down  about 175 feet. It is our indention to continue sinking until the  300 foot leyel is reached."

Is.it not true,  however, that very few of the  people who signed it, ever received mail at Rock Creek ? A petition such as this means very little  indeed when placed side by side,  with the repeated complaints ot  people who claimed that they had  to wait until the late postmaster  got good and ready to go from his  hotel to the little old log house  that served as a post office iu order that they mightg-et their mail.  There are a few other thiugs that  Mr. Pittendrigh or his scribe-may  remember if only they try,        -  The fact of the matter is that  where the post office is now  situated it ia much more convenient to the community as a whole  than at Mr. Pittendrigh's. It is  in a store where proper attention  is given it and the necessary supply of- postage stamps, etc., is  kept on hand. At ' this point  there is also ablachsmith's shop  and a hotel. The commercial  centre of the community is no longer at the mouth of Rock Creek.  In the face of these facts, it  would be very much stranger   to  Supplies purchased at Latch-  ford for shipment to the new  Montreal river silver district,  which is sixty miles from Cobalt, Ont., are verj expensive.  For instance, bread costs 3.0 to 40  cents per loaf; flour, 5 cents per  lb.; corn, tomatoes and peas, 25  to 30 cents per caa; bacon, 25c  per lb.; new potatoes, $3 to $4  per bag; beans, 8 cents   per   lb.;  So much is heard now and then  of Nevada and the unexampled  opportunities of the copper industry there, that what Charles M.  Schwab recently had to say of the  country which like all the others  will take time to become . an El  Dorado is apropos.
