Treats the District  Quite Fully and Independently.  The geology of the Boundary copper-  field, signally complex in its range of  volcanic and plutonic rocks and associated occurence of displaced sedimentary beds, has been thoroughly investigated by Prof. R. W. Brock, for the  Canadian Geological Survey. The  principal copper deposits of commercial value in the district are very similar in character and mineral composition, each providing data upon the  fundamental problems of genesis.  Yet there has been considerable divergence among scientific observers as to  their exact origin and as to the relative  significance of the agencies known to  have played a part in the formation of  these huge low grade deposits.  . Tee most recent expert visit has  been that of Mr. W. L. Austin, of New  York, who reported on  the  field  for  It is at least beyond all controversy  that the deposits, whether the enor-  triors mire or less regular mass at the  Granby, the irregular deposits of unknown format the Mother Lode and  Rawhide, or the comparatively vein-  like ore body of the Brooklyn are low  in grade, 'persist to the considerable  depthsalreadv proved, of fairly regular value and composition���taking an  average on a broad basis and of phenomenal bulk. There are different types  of ore in the district but infinitely the  most important is that marked by the  presence of magnetiie, in association  with chalcopyrite, pyrite and specular  iron. As gangue minerals, quartz.and  calcite are coinnon. An average analysis, based on figures kindly provided  by operating companies, gives the following:  British Columbia Copper���  * Mother Lode, Deadwood.  Emma, Summit,  B.C. Mine, Summit.  Oro Denoro, Summit.  Dominion-Copper���  *Brooklyu-Slem\vinder, Phoeuix  *Rawhide, Phoenix.  Sunset, Deadwood.  The four mines marked with an asterisk will probably account tor 80 to 90  per cent cf the district's yield.  British Columbia Copper Company���  The Mother Lode,mine  at   Deadwood,  three miles to the north- west of Green  wood and the smelters which  it feeds,  is the second   largest   deposit   in   the  district.;.So little is known of the form  of some of the Boundary deposits,however, that it would be safer to say that  it, at present, appears to merit that  classification. The deposit, striking  north and south with a dip of 50 to 70  degrees was traced at surface for a  more or less continuous 2000 feet. Its  tipper section has been worked by an  open cut 1,200 feet long and from 100  to 200 ft. in width. The body, so far  is known.appears to be a series of some  what lenticular shoots, though there is  no absolute break in the ore save where  cut by the porphyry dikes which form  a noteworthy feature of the occurence.  The greatest shoot, showed in one sec  tion a iength.of 850 feet.  Writing in 1902. Prsf. Brock remarked  ���". . . .but further work is  necessary  ���-���.".. ��� ���.���I -���I.. i.

Unfortunately his views are not available in  such form as to allow of close comparison with those of Prof. Brock and it is  unsatisfactory to have to turn to mere  conversational references for his palmary conclusions. Mr. Austin in an interview with Mr. Burrell of Grand  Forks, made cei tain general observations which may be fairly cut from  their contect:���The ores are impregnations by vapors and mineral solution  of lava flows tuff and ash beds formed  by previous volcanic activity. ...  Pockets of limestone are scattered  through the Granby deposits, but these  are of a wholly secondary  importance..  The lava flows arid ash beds on Phoenix mountain-were (after eruption) imT  pregriated with mineral, forced into  them by intense pressure and probably  under great heat. . .

A tendency to turn somewhat more  silicious in depth has been noted in  some-mines, though not to a degree  sufficient to prevent the ready adaptability of the ores to Smelting. In any  case, the change is not one of such  marked or invariable occurrence as to  suggest the probability of further and  -more- troutlesome���inereases?���At���the  Mother Lode, indeed, the ore from the  upper levels, produces a slag containing 2 o 3 per cent more silica than that  from the lower.

Those interested  in1 the questions raised shou[d refer  to  this excellent  monograph,  in  connection with   which   it is   only   necessary  here to note that Professor Brock  lays  stress on the effects displayed by  the  contact action  erupted rocks and the  alteration of the country rock  effected  by the eruptives by  means of vapors  and liquids, which were strong  mineralises.    "While often found  along-the  actual contact, the pneumatolytic contact zone may be found  as  islands  in  the  neighboring country  rock.    It  is  to this class of deposits the low grade  Bounda-iy ores belong*"  workings, there is rather less iron and  more lime than in the upper.  In all th. mines one will see abundant evidence of slides, which in the  smaller deposits bear detrimentally  upon mining economy, but in the large  bodies these slips, marked by movement planes with or without secondary  filling, are of small commercial importance. Often these fractures are helpful in rock-br.*aking.  The   mines   upon   which   the  three  smelters and miningcompanies depend  for their principal supplies of ore may  be listed as follows:  Granby Consolidated���  *Granby Group, Phoenix.  Gold Drop, Phoenix.  ^before the shape of the ore body can  be intelligently discussed." The same  condition holds good today. New dis-"  coveries in the supposed hanging to  the east and the supposed footwall to  the west have tended to keep the work  of exploration to the stoping levels and  deeper sinking has not been undertak-  ed for a long time. The vertical shaft  stands at radedlh of 475 feet, with levels at 60, 200, 300 and 400 feet. Present  hoisting gear would be unable to stand  greatly increased depth or. tonnage.  Stoping methods and ore characteristics  conform closely to those obtaining in  the Granby. Tramming is performed  by horses or by hand labor. 'There is  the charrcteristic lack of timber in the  workings save for chutes and levels.  From the commencement, operations  have been coddttcted under the control  of Fred Keffer* M. K.. who has described his mining methods in a paper  before-thc-Ganadiau-Institute^of ^-Mining IOngiueers, of which he is now  president. '  ;The footwall country of the Mother  Lode is a pure crystalline limestone, as  in the Broodklyn at Phoenix. The occurrence of these limestones, generally  of limited extent, in connection with  the ore deposits is a circumstance leaving wide scope tor further geological  investigation.  With the Greenwood smelters treat-  idg 1,800 to 2,000 tons aday, a very heavy  call is now to be made on this mine,  which, however, will be substantially  svpported by the|company"s lesser pro-  dvcers at Summit,���notably the Emma  with 300 tons a day. Ore .eserves in  the Mother Lode are estimated at 2-  000,000 tons whose value can be obtained by no methods of mine sampling.  Smelter returns must always be the  true basis of Boundary ore valuation.  An unofficial, conservative estimate  places average values at 1.25 to 1.50  per cent copper, SI gold aud 0.25 per  cent silver. Over SOO.OOO tons have  been extracted from the property.  Rawhide and Brooklyn���The two  mines front which the Dominion Copper will be drawing .he bulk of the ore  for its enlarged smelter are the Rawhide and Brooklyn at Phoenix, as unlike in form as any two similar mines  iu the district. Little is yet known of  the full shape of the Rawhide, which  is still in an early stage of development. The mine is situated on a steep  hillside, one and one-half miles to to  the southwest of Phoenix. The mass,  which is worked by a glory hole near  the top of the hill, appears to dip more  or less with the northern slope of the  hill. The footwall of the deposic i.s  fairly well defined and the hanging  much more erratic and hard to determine, as the lower tunnel developments  have clearly proved. The uncertainty  in this direction, while satisfactory in  so far as it reflects an absence of har-  rowly confining limits, placed   difiicul  ties in the way of formulating an .con-!  omical scheme  of  exploitation   iti  advance.  It will at present be [the aim of the  management to work the open-cut for  a maximum tonnage, raising to the  standard by tunnel contributions. The  ore body is cut by six tunnels, the lowest or No. 1 being 50 feet above the  level of tbe Canadian Pacific railsoad  trocV and delivering all the ore from  the No. 4 down to the 840-ton capacity  bins at head of its tramway. The tunnels by which the deposit is tapped run  up to 550 feet in length and Nos. 3 and  4 each run into the hillside for 350 feet"  The top tunnel, No. 6, into which all  glory hole ore is passed, is 220 feet  above No. 1.  The work done upon this body,  though enough to prove its great bulk,  requires to be followed up by a vigorous diamond drilling policy, which can  alone give the management the knowledge of extensions ancl widths.to insure a thoroughly efficient-, working  scheme, Dip sections of the property  toward the Curlew, Snowshod, Gold  Drop and Monarch, constitute pronis-  ing areas for prospecting,  A    similar  tonnage  will   be  drawn  from the Brooklyn, which differs   radically from the Rawhide in its vein-like  features.    The   body  runs   northcand  south, to the north of and more or   less  in a line with the strike  of  the  Knob-  hill-Ii-bnsides on the other side of Phe-  nix.    Associated    with 'the  Brooklyn  are-the Idaho (Southern extension) and  the Stemwinder,   not   now   producing.  The Brooklyn incline  shaft  has .been  carried to a depth of 430 feet, with levels at 80,.150, 250 and "350 feet.    An average width of 35  to 40 feet  obtains,  and rarely does it exceed 60 feet.    The  deposit    occurs    between "a  limestone  footwall  and   "greenstone"   hanging,  with an average dir of 50or 60 degrees.  Nearly all .work," has   been   performed  south of the  shaft,   glory   hold  operations to the north having revealed  an  apparent pinching.    This .irregularity  marked by rhe occurrence of limestone  in the hanging wall of the pinched ore  body, will very likely be prov2d merely  a surface disturbance upon  deeper  development.    Characterised by a fairly,  steady width of about 40 feet (75 feet is  a maximum) and comparatively  regu  lar walls,  the Brooklyn.makes an easier mining proposition than its  neighbor.    Passeslare put up from the footwall drifts every  25 feet.    Below the  stope, either stalls are tfujlt  or  blocks  Cf solid ground left".as" pillars7to; protect the level.    On these the ore is  allowed to accumulate as a floor for   the  drillmen, as   much being drawn off as  leaves a convenient  height  ofi backs.  Pillars are now being more extensively  used than stalls.    Drifts are carried  8  feet by 7 feet, or 7  feet   by  5 feet according to their uses.  The Brooklyn is served by the Canadian Pacific railroad, while the Idaho  last year built(new ore bunkers on a  spur og the Great Northern, in preparation for a considerable shipment tonnage.  A recent reserve 'estimate" in the  Brooklyn, which .has 4,000 feet of  drifts, including 500 feet on the bottom  350 foot.level, figured something over  250,000 tons. It is a mine whose remarkable features are apt to be ill-appreciated owinR to the exceptional  company in which it stands as aneigh*  bor of the Granby.  Comparing the two. chief properties  held by the Dominion Copper Co. at  Phoeuix,    it^ would    oertainly  appear  In  This  Land of Development  FUEL  IS- PRESENT   KING.  A Local Man Becomes Interested in the  Fuel Supply of the North-  West  ���Alex. Miller, who has been instrumental iu bringing* much  capital to Greenwood for development of its high-grade mines is  about embarking in a new enterprise. Associated with Mr. Richard Armstrong, of Chicago, control has been secured of the holdings of the Cul'fax- Coal Mining  Company with holdings in British Columbia and Alberta.  'In aH3,-.0O acres of coal-bearing lands have been secured aud  capital is in sight for their early  exploitation."  Part of the land adjoins the  famous Gait mines near Lethbridge, and part on the Elk river  east of Michel and adjoining one  of the C.P.R's coal reserves.  There oppears to be no trouble  for the right people to enlist capital in coal enterprises at present.  Men who will not touch metal-  iferpus mining are eager to embark in such steady industries  as coal and lumber.  Everywhere in the west coal is  in great demand and already the  press is telling doleful stories of  a famiheagain next winter.  The; mining aud smelting industries have just begun to grow*  inthe-West-and coal and coke  are vital incidentals. The supply  of fuel for the great west must be  drawn, from the west. The eastern sources of supply are too remote, and the man or company in  the west that can supply fuel has*  a sure demand from the prairie  pi'bvinces and the mining belt.  Although -we trust that the  energy and influence of Messrs.  Aruistrong'and Miller, will not  by their new venture, be entirely  diverted from their old, we wish  them success in joining the forces  of those who realize what fueF  means to the west and incident-  allv to themselves.* Coal is King  in the west���the prairies as well  as the mountains���and Messrs.  Armstrong and Miller are worthy  to appear at its court. We regret  to learn   that this   uew   venthre  that Brooklyn possibilities are less  than those of the Kawhide. This easterly sectson of the camp, comprising  the Rawhide, the Snowshoe, now vigorously handled by the Cotisolideted  Mining and and Smelting Co. of Can-  aea, for a daily yield of 600 tons, containing 1.4 per cent copper and Si 75  gold ane silver, the Gold Drop in which  the Granby has opened up strong ore  bodies and the Monarch may be expected to present the most goatifiying  fealures of Boundary mining expansion during the next few years.  may necessitate the removal of  Mr. Miller to Spokaue where .he  is likely to open an office iu the  near future. Mr. Armstrong's  headquarters,will remain at Chicago, u  A GOOD SCORE  The two Austrian.; whose ideas  of acquiring property were rather  heterodox, as tuld last week, were  sentenced on Monday last by-  Judge Hallett.  In getting a year at hard labor  at Nelson, it is to be hoped tliat  as they are still young the lesson  may not be without beneficial effect ou their later lives.  NO;FEAR FELT  No fear is felt that the strong  financial condition of tlie local  union ,of the Industrial Workers  of the World will be imperilled  by the action of some of the Chinese comrades who seek to withdraw moneys paid into the order,  on the plea that business has not  been helped by their comradeship  Runaway  A team belonjnh"- to Macdon-  aid of Phoenix took a lively run  through town on Monday. It  traversed quite j bit of Copper  street, part of the way on the  sidewalk, and at the south end  decided to take the Mother Lode  hill road. Some distance up the  hill ii overtook and ran i, > Mc-  Arthur's team without serious  injury to themselves or others.  It might be good advice to suggest the advisability of securing  a team before leaving it standing  on a street. It would be safer to  the lives of those who have first  ricrhts to the sidewalks  R.

Un  Montiay'evening a record-making  run was made to rhe south end.  Seme refuse near the house of  Frank Mil lis caught lire in some  way and being ou an elevation  was quickly noticed. An alarm  was sent out and water was  thrown on it before any damage  was done.

Japan appears to be as   greedy  as   wily    and    just    now   keeps  munching      away   and     saying  'there won't be any Korea."  That new million dollar distil  for Winnipeg  suggests that the  prairie     people     are   providing  against the possible contingency  of dry seasons.  ler is a professedly good man,  but this ought to keep him good  for a while at least. And what  is particularly gratifying about  this matter is that Secretary Garfield says the fine will be collected  There are moreover sufficient  other indictments against the  octopus to make another fine of  SS millions possible.  Mr. Keir Hardie, who is a man,  a gentleman and a socialist gave,  our own beloved Hawthorn-Waite  a severe jolt at the public meeting  in Vancouver recently. Mr.  Hardie wanted * Mr. Hawthorne-  waite to imbibe the idea that he  did not intend that Mr. McPher-  son, one of the guests of the Socialist meeting sfiould be insulted  by Mr. Hawthornwaite, another  guest. Mr. Hardie in his action  sets forth the doctrine that it is  better to be a man than a peanut  politician.  to note   that .Britain and Russia  have now come to a good understanding regarding several   matters about which there   has been  much  ill-feeling for many years  on both sides.    One of  these   is  the independence of Afghanistan  which Britain desires to see maintained in order that she may remain a   "buffer"   State   between  Russia and India; another is the  definition   of     their    respective  spheres   of   influence   in Persia.  There   can   be   no   doubt about  Britain's sincere desire   to   leave  Persian territory intact  and   to  see that ancient kingdom  rise to  a higher stage of political civilization.    At all events, there  are  important possibilities for   good  ia the fact that an understanding  has been arrived at,   to  be  later  followed probably by and  independent treaty,  In these diplomatic achievements the influence of King "Edward is plainly visible. His well-  known desire for international  peace prompts him to use his extraordinary opportunities to make  war difficult by inducing the powers to enter into alliances. Great  Britain, France, and Spain form  one combination. Russia is in  alliance with France and Japan  with Britain. Now Russia has  entered into a treaty with Japan  and an understanding with Russia, and Japan has arrived at an  understanding with France. The  Scandinavian countries are friendly to Great Britain, and Portugal  has been in alliance with her for  two centuries and a half. Italy  has no desire to hold aloof, and  there is no good reason why Germany should do so, or Austria-  Hungary. The Emperor of Germany is his nephew, while the  Emperor of Russia ia the nephew  of Queen Alexandra. Fortunately  Britain has just now a Foreign  Secretary of exceptional ability,  high reputation, and a "temperament at once robust and humane.  ���The Globe.

The darker colors are in vogue  in British Columbia now. The  yellow of a few years ago is not  much favored, but last month the  brown came in and now black  threatens to be the rage. Five  hundred Sikhs are reported to be  on the war.

John D.  Rockefel-  Russia   and   Japan have set a  good example to other belligerent  powers   by   entering into   a  treaty of amity and commerce  to  supplement the   treaty of peace  with which their recent war came  to a close.    So  far as   its   terms  have been published the provision  it makes for  trade   between   the  two empires is fairly liberal, and  Russia has been   surprisingly  so  in the  conditions on   which  the  Japanese are allowed  to  participate in the fishing  industry   not  merely   off   the   coast of Russia,  but in the River Amur, which   is  boundary betweeu it and  China.  Apparently it is the desire of the  Russian   Government   that    the  people of Siberia shall   have  an  opportunity to   develop  what;, is  now Russian territory instead of  being drafted off to a war carried  on for the purpose   of  acquiring  more.    If  this policy is  adhered  to, and if some effective measure  of self-government is granted  to  the Russian people,   the   empire  may yet have   a  great  political  future.  As Britain and Japan have for  years been allies it is interesting  From  Worcester, Mass;*, comes  this harrowing story:���  The American Steel and Wire  Trust is buying children in Worcester for $1 a head. '���'  Several hundred have already  been sold to slave in the three  huge mills of the trust in this  city, and the sale of hundreds of  others will soon be consummated  if the State authorities do not interfere.  To secure absolute control of  the children the Trust recently  demanded that their parents sign  "a minor's release."  Each parent who signs this release receives one dollar, and for  that dollar he or she waives forever all control over the child.  Many of the parents who have  signed these documents and trans-  ferrrd their children to bondage  are natives of foreign countries  who do not uoderstandjthe Engliih  language. Few of them realize  what they have done. - ��  J  The Boundary'^ Pay-roll in  industrial concerns alone, today  total* a Quarter of a Million  Dollars monthly.

Times to get it out a special edition. .The Times is a "public  print shop and the services of its  workmen are for sale every day,  the same as the services of any  -workman. Does Mr. Steel mean  that the Times should have done  the work for nothing and thus  have become a "scab?" But  there is another side to this story,  early the following- week the  writer went to the Secretary of  Miners' Union and told him that  the Times desired to play fair to  all parties and offered him space  for any reply he might desire  "free of charge." Could a public  newspaper do a fairer thing than  this? But we recall the pleasure  we felt, subsequent to this event  when we saw the name of the  Times on the "Fair" list of the  Miners's Union. Now if the  Times played Judas Iscariot, who  by  the  way was spy and traitor,  and was afterwards pronounced  "fair." hy the. bodv over which  Mr Steel presides, we suppose it  is fair +n assume that he wnild  write 'fair' after the name of Judas too.    Would he?  Tn concUisi0'1 we be.*- to sav  to Mr. Steel that the Times did  not intend to do him or the order  he represents anv irqusrice in its  reoort, in fact we believe our  criticisms were even more merciful to him than those of some of  his associates.

We   bad   not   the  patience to listen  to Mr.   Steel's  entire address on  the   street, but  as Mr. Steel  writes better than  he speaks, we have read his communication through very carefully  and have found pleasure and  interest therein.  The chief reference Mr. Steel  makes to the Times is in his closing paragraph and to deal with  that is our principal business at  this, moment.  7 ...7  The: party interviewed could give  no very  definite  information  on  the subject dismissing it with the  significant    statement    that    he  didn't think Mr.  Steel  knew exactly   what   he    had    said.    We  drew the conclusion that   the report was correct and in our story  said we did not think people were  prepared to  hear him  admit  he  was an anarchist.    We are Sorry  that so many misunderstood Mr.  Steel, and are glad to  accept his  statement of fact.  In regard to the practice of the  local merchants refusing: credit  we have nothing to say. The  property on their shelves belongs  to them and* with its disposition we have nothing to do. But  we will hazard this statement  that the list of bad and doubtful  debts made,bv.the merchants .of  Incidentally however we may  observe that in regard to their  being a citizens' alliance in Greenwood, we are not informed, but if  there be what of it ? Have the  citizens not a right to so   organ-  The regular meeting of the  City Council was held on Monday  evening last.  The city driver, was clothed  with power to turn on and off  city water in place of the city  plumber.  The mayor was instructed to  inquire into a case of reported  destitution, for which subscription lists have recently circulated  in the city.  Progress was reported on the  water system being installed at  the cemetery.  City driver Mulhern asked for  an increase of salary and on consideration wasp'fixed at $120 per  month commencing August 1.  The work day for city laborers  was fixed at eight hours and the  pay at:$3.d0  The salaries of the city clerk  and the chief of police were raised  $20.00 each per month.  The council decided not to take  advantage of parties whose properties were sold to the city for  taxes in July 190f> and which  should have been redeemed on or  before July 27 last, by practically  extending date of redemption until Janu ary 1st next.

They decided to sink to the 110  foot level and then cross-cut for  the ore.

'  The Greenwood City Waterworks  Company have a record for this watfcr  and have constructed a dam, the purpose being to have the same as a reserve in case of shortage in Boundary  Creek. The water was asked for by  John Mulligan for smelter purposes,  and his application was contested. S.  S. Taylor of Nelson appeared for Mulligan aad A. M. Whiteside for the local company.    Decision was reserved.  Does such an alliance threaten  injury to anyone? We thoroughly believe in organization of interest, and for that reason approve  of the union of miners and others  for the protection of their interests. If the alliance of citizens  can do for themselves and the  town a small part of what Mr.  Steel claims the alliance of miners has done for its membership  it ought certainly to be encouraged and not condemned* In regard to the statement that the  Times in suggesting that Mr.  Steel declared himself to be an  Anarchist, was in error we may  say that we did not hear Mr.  Steel make the statement but we  had the evidence of some who  stood near him and who positively affirm that he did so express  himself. Doubting, however,  that the speaker intended to be  so construed, before writing our  report of the event we went to  the Union Hall to  ask Mr. Steel  1 on the street, but was told he was  not in position to be interviewed.  We then requested a member of  the Union to ask him if we would  be doing him an injustice to give  credence to the reported story  and went the day following to  obtain  his  version of the same.  Mr. Steel or ourselves to be judg-  es in the  matter.   In regard to the value of a cooperative store it Greenwood Mr.  Steel 'has decided views. He  thinks it vital to the welfare of  the distrcit. But we want to ask  him one question." If the merchants' of Greeuwood arc working  a great hardship on the laboring  man by restricting credit, how  will a co-operative store help  things, for its cardinal principle  is "uo credit, no losses.  And now in regard to the con-  clvding paragraph where Mr.  Steel evidently thinks he has  said something particularly offensive and critical by comparing  the Times to Judas Iscariot, asserting that it sold itself a few  months ago to the B. C. Copper  Co.  The facts of the case are these.  At the time of the last trouble at  the local smelter the Times tried  to be very careful and fair and  exact in telling what was taking  place, telling it as a mattet of  news of public interest. After  the paper was out one week the  B. C- Copper Co. wished to make  a [statement in its columns but  were too late.
