MP   P, on Peril of  Chinese Labor.  which I do not think is considered very  deleterious to general health.  "We have a. couple of smeltermen's  unions at the works, but we. have  no trouble with the men, and the pay  and the hours of work have so far been  unobjected to."  Latek.���The bill was defeated on  the second reading in the house  Wednesday by a .vote pf 12 to 26. Its  supporters included Fraser, Grand-  Forks, and Houston, Nelson, * The  cabinet ministers and Brown, Greenwood, voted against the bill.. Macdon-,  aid, leader of the opposition, spoke but  did not vote. Attorney General Wilson also abstained from voting.' Mr.  Brown feared a shut down of the smelters would mean the employment of  Mongolians later on.  ELKHORN MINE.  The British Columbia smelting industry is up in arms against Mr.  Hawthornthwaite's bill providing an  eight-hour day for smelter men. Dispatches from the coast state that there  is little liklihood of the measure being  enacted into law. Representatives of  the various smelters are now iu , Victoria lobbying against the bill. They  include Frederic Keffer, general manager of the British Columbia Copper  Co., J. J. Campbell, of the Hall Mines  smelter, Moore and Labarth, of the  Trail smelter, and E. J. Roberts of the  Sullivan Mine smelter. John Houston, M.P.P. who was au ardent champion of the 8-honr bill in favor of miners, is as strongly opposed to the bill  now before the house. He takes the  view that its provisions are too sweeping at a juncture when the smelting  ing Industry has not been established  on a paying basis. He, however, says  good will result from the agitation and  predicts that a, compromise will be  effected whereby the ���working "hours of  men working around furnaces, roasters and other un-healthy work wilK be  reduced. It is significant of the attitude of the Granby company that its  general superintendent, A. B. W.  Hodges wired to Victoriai stating that  the passage' of the eight-hour bill  would result in closing down the plant  and in a suspension of operations until the law were repealed According  to the coast papers the government  and the liberal opposition will oppose  the proposed eight-hour law. Strongly  worded resolutions condemnatory of  the measure have also been adopted by  the Provincial Mining Association.  On the other hand organized labor has  declared as emphatically that the  measure is a just and salutary one in  the interests of over-worked smeltermen. ._.;..;;  ^^Theprobable ��atti*ude=of��the=latter,  in the event off the bill being defeated  is being warmly discussed. Certain  people claim that a strike on the part  of smeltermen will surely follow.  There is' a significant passage in a  letter recently written in support of  the proposed 8-hour law by Ernest  Mills, of Greenwood, president ot district Association No. 6, Western Federation of Labor. Mr. Mills makes  the following declaration:  "Must we stop the wheels of progress and industry by reverting  to      the    strike ? The     smelter  men will have eight hours and get it.  peacefully if possibly through legis���!  lation, but the time is not far distant  when the overworked men will demand it. nor will we starve while doing it, as the whole world is today  ready to cheer and support us in the  battle."  The Granby Co., made the following  statement:  "We have men on lO.hour shift, and  men on 12-hour shift. The former are  out door men. When they are through  with oue job we find them another.  Their work is continuous. The 12-  hour me.n, however, are inside men-  They do not work continuously and do  not average eight hours apiece. Take  the feeders for example, these men  have a feeding device which simply  means the turning of a coupleof levers  once in every ten minutes, and '.hen  they do as they like. The inside men  have a system of relief, which further  cuts down their actual hours of work.  As to the fumes, there are no lead  fumes and the worst thing the men  have to contend with  is  the sulphur  It Will be Acauired by an Incorporated Company;  C. "  Yielding to the persuasion of their  numerous friends and prospective.;investors. James Sutherland and Phil  McDonald, the owners, have decided to  vest the ownership of the Elkhbrn  mine in an incorporated limited liability company. The capital stock will  be placed at 5200,000 in shares of the  par value of $1 each. .The papers' in  connection with the incorporation were  sent* to Victoria this week by J.. P.  Myers-Gray, barrister of this city. The  proposed company will be known as  the Boundary-Elkhorn Mining L Co.,  Ltd., The Elkhorn and E. H. fraction?  adjoining the Elkhorn and owned'by  Messrs. Sutherland and McDonald,  will also be included in the transfer. -  The Elkhorn is one of the pioneer  and best known high grade mines, in  this camp. A little' more than two  years ago it was acquired on a working  bond. Messrs. McDonald and Sutherland paid S4,000 for the prospect long  K'fon* the bond expired, deriving the  money from the proceeds of ore shipments. Although a depth of only 150  feet has been reached the mine'has  shipped over 1000 tons ; of ore; has.  large ore reserves in sight, besides  several hundred tons of second grade  ore on the dump  The public will be given an opportunity "of subscribing for stock as  20,000 shares of treasury.stock-will be  offered at 50 cents per share. The proceeds will be devoted to installing an  up-to-date plant including a 5-drill air  compressor which will enable;,the c-qm-  ���pahy to inaugurate a more vigorous  policy of development. The investment is regarded as gilt-edge.  COAST-KOOTENAY RY.  Vancouver Wholesaler Endorses The  =^^=^-^---_^Project-i^  Robert Kelly, senior, partner of  Kelly,' Douglas & Co., wholesale  grocers, Vancouver, was a guest at  the Imperial several, days this week.  He is paying his first visit to the interior and accompanying him were  Mrs. Kelly and his veteran and pop-'  ular representative in the Kootenays,  H. A. Small.. Mr. Kelly stated that  he had been simply amazed at "the  grow th and prosperity so apparent in  all the towns of the interior. From  the large business done by his firm in  the upper country he had long ago appreciated its resources*bat'. his visit  bad proved somewhat in the way of a  revelation. What impressed him most  of all. was the magnitude of the Boundary district and its un-limited possibilities. He had always favored the  establishment of direct railway communication between the interior and  the coast via the Similkameen, but  now that that he had studied the  situation at close range would return  lionie more enthusiastic than ever in  favor of a Coast-Kootenay railway.  He added that l;busiuess men at the  coast could repeat his experience at  great personal advantage to themselves; in fact he felt confident they  would then realize the enormously  increased business that the coast merchants could secure by the establishment of direct rail communication.  There was no reason why Victoria  and Vancouver wholesale houses in all  lines should not enjoy a larger share  of the trade of the interior if the plans  contemplated by various railway enterprises were carried out. At present the means of communication was  anything but satisfactory, involving  as it did a roundabout haul via Revelstoke.  MONTREAL  & BOSTON  Guggenheim    Exploration  Co.   Now   in  Control.  New   Owners   Command   Enormous  Capital.  The Guggenheim Exploration Co.  has acquired the controlling interest  in the Montreal & Boston Copper Co.  The transfer took place in New York  this week. The deal was made possible  by the co-operation of Munroe & Munroe, the New York brokers, who sold  their entire holdings of stock and liquidated every cent of their indebtedness.  Munroe &'Munroe have no longer any  interest in the company. It is reported that they will now turn their attention to the exploitation of their extensive Mexican mining properties. H.  T. Pemberton, genera.1 manager of the  Montreal,.& Boston, .and who has been  closely associated with the Munroes,  leaves-for the east on business about  March' 1st."  The recent deal financed by the Guggenheims provided for a cash payment  of $100,000 and the purchase of 225,000  shares . of Montreal. & Boston stock  taken at $1 per share. Options have  also been Secured on the stock iri the  hands' of brokers. The company's  properties were recently examined by  M. M." Johnson, M.E., of Salt Lake, on  behalf of the Guggenheims.  H.T. Pemberton, the general man  ager, has performed his duties with  great satisfaction. Two months after  beginning operations he had the Rawhide developed from a prospect to a  stage enabling it to produce 450 tonsof  ore daily. Iii less than six weeks after  acquiring the Brooklyn and Stem-  winder group Mr. Pemberton had these  mines unwatered and shipping a large  tonnage..--. -*-������-.-'���-������.-��� *������'.���;.*������.'���  ��� ������ The Guggenheims ojyn mines   and  smelters in the United States, Mexico  and South America.

Conditions of the grant  were that these lands were exempted from taxation while not  used for other purposes than for  railways and were to be sold at  the same rates as that asked for  by -the .government for similar  lands. These conditions, however, have been recklessly disregarded. Thousands of acres  are yielding the C. P. R. from  $10 to $30 per acre for timber-  cutting privileges. The government has a strong case against  the C.P.R. A measure should be  enacted compelling that railway  corporation to pay taxes ou these  lands, especially since the statutory agreement has been so ruth-  lefsly violated. The railways in  any event are better able to contribute to the revenues than the  average citizen whose heritage  has been frittered away. The  lands in the first instance belonged jto the people. They have  been literally given away, enabling the C. P. R. to derive millions in. revenue-therefrom whilst  the government is now resorting  =to-every expedient-to devise new  methods for-wringing additional  taxation from the people. The  burden should be borne by the  railways, not by the ordinary tax  payer. If our public domain  had been conserved .* and properly  administered, this'province would  be not only out of debt but would  possess a handsome cash surplus.  Instead, however, we have the  spectacle of an over-taxed population meekly submitting to  fresh .burdens while the C. P. R.  pursues its policy of rapacity  and plunder.  ^��  ��1ssucd every fiiday  OaticAN Ross.  Man aging Editor  SUBSCRIPTIONS IN ADVANCE.  IPbb Ybak *   Six Months   To Forbiqn Countries....  200  1 23  250  FRIDAY FEBRUARY 24, W0S  The question of railway land  grants will be discussed at this  week's meeting of the Associated Boards of Trade. It is one  that deserves thorough consideration, and is especially timely  now that the Grand Trunk  Pacific is seeking to secure a land  bonus from the provincial government. People can scarcely  credit the statement that former  legislature have awarded the C.  P. R. nearly six million acres of  land in East Kootenay, and of  which seventy-five per cent is  still in reserve. It is being urged, and quite properly too, that  the reserve retards development  of the areas, lessens the revenue  of the government and hampers  mineral locators by a tax of $5  per acre for useful rights within  The educational problems of  the .province were fully discussed  :at a recent convention of school  trustees held in Vancouver. The  public school curriculum came in  for sweeping condemnation, but  the extension of the kindergarten  system was .warmly endorsed.  Complaints .were made by several  of the delegates that high school  pupils were compelled to take-up  too many subjects, and the qualifying examinations also received  scathing criticism. The establishment of three optional courses, commercial, science and the  arts, was also seriously advocated ,as affording a variety of  choice for pupils with different  aspirations. Its champion, however, failed to secure the en-  dorsation of the convention,  which considered it unwise on  sh=OTt15oticeVt6uf^ge^tFe^^vefn^  ment to make sweeping amendments to the school act. There  is undoubtedly some truth in the  criticism that the present high  school curriculum is designed  more particularity for professional life as distinguished from  a commercial or mechanical  training, despite the fact that  the evolution of education has  made it imperative that the  public school system should have  for its ultimate object the preparation of the pupils for callings or occupations in which the  great majority will ultimately  engage. Before adjourning the  convention adopted a resolution  establishing the limits of compulsory attendance at seven and  fourteen years.  munication between the Bound-  arj*- and the coast. He has been  simply amazed at the growth of  tha mining industry and now  realizes with a new and deeper  meaning the possibilities of trade  that would* be created in the  event of the construction of a  railway from Midway to Vancouver, via the Similkameen district. As a business man Mr,  Kelly is nothing if not practical  and when he returns to the coast  his advocacy of the enterprise  should awaken a more general interest.   Now that the control of the'  Montreal & Boston Copper Co.,  has passed to a wealthy New  York mining syndicate, a vigorous policy of expansion will likc-  ely be inaugurated. The mines  owned by the company embrace  some of the biggest propositions  in the Boundary, and the output can easily keep pace with  the enlargement of the smelting  plant for years to come. Two  months after starting operations  the Rawhide was ' enabled to  maintain a daily tonnage of 450  tons. The promptness with  which the-deal was closed would  indicate a very favorable report  submitted by M. M. Johnson, the  Utah expert, who recently examined the Montreal & Boston  group. The high price of copper now prevailing will prove an  additional incentive for the new  owners to inaugurate a polic}-* of  expansion. .There seems to be a  well foundered impression for the  belief that the Guggenheims  will dominate the- affairs of the  compan}*", althoug*h possibly other  interests may be associated in the  direction of the enterprise. Now  that Munroe & Munroe have  stepped down and out the people  of this district will not be slow  to re-acknowledge the invaluable  service rendered this district by  the young promoters during the  past four years.  Every coast visitor who comes  to the Boundary becomes an enthusiastic supporter of the Coast-  Kootenay railway project. This  is the invariable experience. Robert Kelly, of Kelly, Douglas &  Co., wholesale merchants, Vancouver, paid his first visit here  this week although his firm has  been doing business in the Boundary for the past seven years. Mr.  Kelly had always evinced more  or less interest in the movement  for providing direct railway com-  R. A. Brown, of Grand Porks,  a pioneer of the Boundary district has for years beeu a persistent champion of a project  having for its object the driving  of a tunnel from the north fork  of Kettle river io tap at great  depth the ore deposits of Summit  Phoenix, Deadwood, and Copper  camps. Mr. Brown hopes to  overcome the difficulties of ventilation by making frequent upraises to the surface. His project although heartily laughed  at-by-the-know-ing^ones,,=may=yet  be carried out in the light of the  results accomplished by development tunnels run in Utah and  Colorado as recently related in  these columns by M. M. Johnson,  a Salt Lake city mining engineer.  Three miles of a 10-mile tunnel  with which Mr. Johnson is in-  dentified, have already been  driven, and according to Mr.  Johnson the costs have already  been repaid by the royalties derived from the ore.tcnnage of the  various mines whose ore shutes  have been tapped at depth. In  the light of this experience Mr.  Brown's tunnel project does not  look so chimerical after all. Any  method of mining which permits  the handling of the ores by  gravity will greatly reduce mining costs. This fact has already  been established at the Granby  mines and an application of the  same principle on a larger scale  as urged by Mr. Brown should  be endorsed rather than thoughtlessly condemned.

Since last fall about 6,600  tons have been shipped, mostly to the  Trail smelter, and some cars hare  given particularly good returns in  both gold and copper. The dumps  were estimated to have been 10,000 and  20,000 tons of ore.  The stock brokerage firm of Munroe  and Munroe issued a statement giving  the terms of settlement with ita creditors. The firm recently resumed business, after a hearing in -the bankruptcy  court and a subsequent adjustment of  its claims.    The statement says :  "In the settlement just made with  our creditors we voluntarily surrender  our interests in and to the Montreal  and Boston Con. Mining arid Smelting  company, to secure the payment of  creditors' claims?and the balance due  to the vendors of the property combined in the consolidation.

The employee cf th�� Nickel Plate  nine, Camp Hedley, are talking: of  raising funds to establish a hospital.  The output "of the International Coal  & Coke Co., last year T��as 50,000 tons.  The mine is atill closed down owing" to  labor troubles.  -The'-Btrikeof the^Miners qt the International Coal & Coke Co., at Coleman, Alta, has been settled to the  satisfaction of both parties*.  The iwrnaces at the local smelter  were-banked last'.Sunday whilst the  flood- jjates of the power company at  Cascade"were being: cleaned out.  iHigh -grade ore containing much  ���free1 gold:is being* extracted from both  drifts in the Bay mine. A carload  shipment will be made early month.  Anthony J. McMillan, managing  , director of the Le Roi, sailed for New  ' York on the 15th, and will arrive in  i Rossland in the course of the next ten  .' days.  Martin McHale, who has the contract-for driving a 300-foot tunnel on  the Gold "Bug has moved his plant to  the ground.and'expects to begin operations next week.  The new crusher at the Mother Lode  mine began operations on Wednesday:  It has a daily capacity of 800 tons.  The old crusher will be retained for  auxiliary purposes.  The Hope No. 2 promises to prove a  bonanza at an early date. The extension of the Silver King vein into  the former claim seems now to be de-  finately -established.  The talk of the camp is the greatly  improvement in the bottom of the incline shaft on the the Silver Cloud  claim. The vein is widening and the  ore abounds in native silver.  A -local syndicate consisting of  Messrs. Ehrlich, Graham, Hall and  "Munroe, have acquired a group of  claims consisting of the Anaconda,  Little Jim and Sudbury, just north of  town, and are preparing to do extensive development work thereon.  In order to expediate development  work, Duncan Mcintosh is installing  an 8x10 hoist in theE.P.U. mine which  has also just been equipped with a 25  h.p.. boiler and a No. 6 Cameron pump.  The plant is being housed in a substantial building which is under construction. '   The amalgamation of the Le Roi,  -Centre-Star, =_War-Eagle,- Snowshoe  and Centre Star mines is virtually  completed. The capital of the new  company will.be $7,500,000 with a  working capital of $1,500,000. The  deal will al5o include the Trail smelter.  The shareholders of tbe Sunset mine,  Copper mountain, Similkameen district, recently decided to give an option  on 51 per cent of the stock to a syndicate organized by O. N. Scott, M. E.,  of Rossland. R. A. Brown of Grand  Forks, was re-elected president, and  Aler Miller, of Greenwood, one the  directors.  W. A. Aldridge, manager of the Canadian Pacific's mining department,  who is to be manager of the Le Roi-  Centre Star combination if it goes  through, ib credited with being the  highest salaried man in British Col-  vmbia, with a retainer of from $20,000  to $30,000 a year from the Canadian  Pacific railroad.  Last week the Montreal & Boston  mines broke all previous records for  shipments from this camp, sending  out over 4000 tons, and one day 900  tons were shipped from the two properties, the Brooklyn and Rawhide.  The company's smelter,0 with its two  furnaces, also broke previous records  for one week by treating 4672 tons of  ore.  With the arrival of a telegram from  Mr. Hodges, manager of the Granby  mints and smelter, informing the  government that if the 8-hour law, introduced by the government's Socialist supporter, is passed, the entire  works  qu4er  bis  control  will  close  down and remain closed until the act  is repealed*, the McBride ministry has  been placed in a very awkward position. The government's supporters  have been caucused, and it is reported that it has decided to give the  measure a six months' hoist, McBride  and Wilson voting for the bill in order  to pr��serve the Socialist alliance.  More ore is today going out of  Phoenix steadily than ever before in  its history, there being approximately  2700 tons shipped every 24 hours. The  shipments are at present divided between the two railways as follows:  Fifty cars from Granby mines over  the Canadian Pacific railroad to Granby smelter, or about 1500 tons; 10 steel  cars "from Granby mines over the  Great Northern, or about 500 tons; 25  cars from the Brooklyn and Rawhide  over the Canadian Pacific to the Montreal & Boston's Boundary Falls smelter, or about 700 tons.  The dumps of the Brooklyn and  Stemwinder mines in . Phoenix  which the Dominion Copper company  retained when the properties were  sold to the Montreal & Boston Consolidated have proved to be quite a  source of income to the owners. Thus  far about 6600 tons of ore haye been  shipped, most of which came fromrthe  Brooklyn dump, and some of the cars  sent out have run well in gold and copper values, for low grade mines.  R. R. Penny and G.H. M. Baker, M.  E., have bonded the Silver Cloud fraction which adjoins the Bay on the  north. This claim should contain the  Bay reef whose strike is roughly NNE  x SSW and dips to the east. The Bay  shaft is only 200 yards from the Silver  Cloud southern bouudary. Work will  be started in a few days. The claim is  owned by J. W. Nelson, of this city.  The Highland Queen, owned by the  Highland Queen Mining ���& Milling Co.  was bonded, this week for $10,000 by F.  W. McLaine, of this city, on behalf of  local parties. Development work will  be started at once. The Highland  Queen is located on the west side of  Boundary, creek and adjoins the  grounds of the local smelter to the  southwest. It is traversed by a quartz  vein varying from 10 inches to 2 feet  in width. The development consists  of 200 feet of stripping along the vein  and a 40-foot shaft. The values are  principally in silver, a recent assay of  surface rock running S200 per ton.  The Winnipeg mine was acquired by  W. T. Hunter, of this city, for $2,500.  The labor leins against the Winnipeg  amounted to $3,400, besides other leins  and judgments. The court costs were  about SI60, so that the 27 labor lein  claimants will have the sum of $2,340  to divide between them. It is under-  stood,says-ihe=Ehoenix-Pioneer��� tha*-  Mr. Hunter represents a syndicate  composed of himself, his brother, C.  D. Hunter and James Hunter, W. S.'  Macy, and A> B. W. Hodges, and it is  the intention to work the property in  the spring. The mine has shipped  5,000 tons of ore. It has some 5,000  lineal feet of development work done,  including a 350 foot shaft and much  drifting, It has new buildings and a  serviceable complement of machin  ery, including air compressor, hoist,  pumps etc.  Mark F. Madden, of Chicago, pre'  sident of/the Providence Mining .Co,,  returned home last week. Speaking to  the Times Mr. Madden said, "My  Chicago associates are well satisfied  with their investment. The mine is  looking well, especially on the'300-foot  level where rich ore containing free  gold and native silver was recently encountered. The crosscut now being  driven on the 400-foot level should  strike the. ore at an early date. Once  the ore is secured the value of the  mine will be enormousl}- enhanced as  the area of stoping ground will be  greatly increased. The incline shaft  from the 300-foot level was not sunk  on the vein, hence the cross-cut run  to catch the ore at the lowest level. I  am perfectly satisfied with the outlook.  Once the ore is encountered, and this  is a's certain as the fact that the sun  will rise tomorrow, we will consider  the advisability of installing an up-to-  date plant in order to increase our  operations, I hope to return here  early next summer with a number of  Chicago capitalists who contemplate  making extensive investments if they  can secure properties that  will   suit  them. Personally, I have a higher  opinion of the camp than ever and am  willing to back my opinion with my  own money,"  \ It is understood that the increasing  demand for electric power in the  Boundary has impelled the Cascade  Water, Power & Light Co,, to look into the matter of adding another unit  to the generating plant a.t Cascade,  which will then be 4,000 horse power.  There is no doubt that this would  be entirely taken up as soon aa available.  The Granby smelter has been receiving some fine copper ore from the  Iron Mask at Kamioops, About nine  cars were brought in during the past  two weeks and Supt. Hodges states  tliatforshipm.entsthatsize.it is the  highest grade of copper ore ever shipped in here. It runs from seven to  eight per cent copper, with some gold  and silver values, The ore has no  lime and fluxes well with the Granby  ores which contain lime in excess.  On Wednesday of last week, for the  first time, the Great Northern railway  began hauling ore from the mines of  Phoenix, the shipments going from  the Granby mines to the Granby  smelter. The -Jars used for the traffic  are made of steel, and are of somewhat different construction from those  in use so long in the Boundary by the  Canadian Pacific. It is the expectation  for the present, that the Great Northern will take out about t��n cars of  Granby ore daily, or about 500 tons,  which amount will later be increased.  The ore shipped all comes from the  No. 3 tunnel level of the Granby  mines, being hauled to the new ore  bunkers by an electric locomotive,  recently installed at that level, and  which operates with the greatest satisfaction to the management,  DIES !
