Mr. Johnson was accompanied by Mrs.-  Johnson and two children. They went  to housekeeping in the handsome residence erected for the.manager near the  smelter.  When seen by a Times representative Mr. Johnson was as good  natured and enthusiastic as ever. "I  had a most delightful trip" he said  "and am now ready to take active  charge of the smelter. My principals  in New York cabled me to Europe to  hasten here to complete the smelter as  they had been receiving the most encouraging reports from the Mother  Lode and were anxious to be in a position to treat the ore. I spent four days  in New York and there met several of  the shareholders of the British Columbia Copper company who visited  the mine this summer. They were  all highly impressed with its immense  showing and predicted a great future  for the Boundary a=i a mining country.  "When will the smelter be ready ?  Well, the buildings are all completed,  and some of the machinery is here  but owing to labor troubles E. P;  Allis &' Co.,- of Milwaukee have been  delayed and it"will be the 15th of October before the last of the machinery  leaves Milwaukee.  "I-intend to get the sampling mill  running as soon as possible and get a  good supply of-ore in the bunkers. The  smelter will be blown in sometime in  November.  "During my visit to Norway I visited  some copper mines that I started mauy  "years ago.' -Since then millions'of  dollars have been spent in their development and to-day they are the  largest copper mines, in Europe. Xt  takes lots.of money and time tq open  up mines wherever they are.  While the same. rule applies  here I am confident that we have one  of the greatest camps in the world"  concluded,Mi*. Johnson.  NOTICE.  Having  sold  my   interest   in    the  Columbia  Hotel,   Eholt,    to    C.    E.

THE EVENING STAR  Andrew Laidlaw Secures a Promising Property in Wellington Camp���Improvements at the Knob Hill and  ���ld Ironsides-Meeting of the Boundary Creek  Mining and Milling Company's Directors.  In the past two weeks mining men  have been coming to Greenwoo'd on a  still hunt for properties. Experts are  in the hills looking at different claims  with a view of bonding for the capitalists which they represent,* and"there  are strong indications that during the  next month many deals will be made.  The first of importance for a considerable time was closed;last'we'ek when  Andrew Laidlaw took a bond on the  Evening Star and Sibley from J. K.  and R. S. Fraser. The price mentioned  in the bond is $45,000, payments running over 15 months; work to be commenced in a short time. The Evening-  Star and Sibley are situate near the  Old Anaconda road, about one mile  from Hartford Junction. The assess-,  ment work for the two claims has  been done on the Evening Star. A  ledge of Copper ore over 125 feet wide  has been uncovered and traced for 500  feet. Assays as high as 19 3-10-per  cent copper has.been received and the  gold values are about $2. The showing is of * so promising a nature that  Mr. Laidlaw felt justified in expending  considerable money in further development of the property. Shipments of  high grade ore can be'made from the  surface and if the ledge' maintains* its  present values : and proportion with  depth, the Evening Star, will be one of  the biggest properties in_ the vicinity/  Mr- Laidlaw willput a f arceo.f men to  work onjthe property in a few days.  The two 80-horse power horizontal  return tubular boilers and the 9x12  hoisting engine lately received at the  Knob Hill mine are how being placed  in position in .the commodious frame  building erected some"time? since near  the entrance to the main tunnei. The  10-drill air compressor ���- for this mine  did not come in with the remainder of  the plant, but its arrival is looked for  daily. After this new plant shall have  been put into running order the development of the Knob Hill and the  adjoining Grey Eagle will be actively  continued.  We have constantly on hand  all the School  Books in use in  our public XX  schools, 3C X X  ALSO  SLATES, SLATE PENCILS,  ; CRAYONS, ERASERS,  DICTIONARIES,    SCRIBBLERS, EXCERCISE BOOKS  ETC.   ETC.  The old shaft house over the Old  Ironsides No. 1 shaft has been demolished and a new building, 28x50,  erected in its place. The old hoisting  ;ehgine-has"been^removed'-and anew  9x12 hoist, similar to that obtained for  the Knob Hill, substituted for it. -A  safety platform cage has been put in  this shaft, thereby facilitating the  work of hoisting rock. The big hoist  at the No. 2 shaft is to be placed on a  more solid foundation , than that it  now stands on. Atnew building is to  be erected alongside the present one  and in this the hoist will be set on a  bed of rock. Below ground the big  stopes in the Victoria are opening out  well, yielding large quantities of freely  mineralized ore. The ore bins are being kept full, the daily output easily  keeping up to shipments to the smelter.  The business block, situate opposite to  the Old Ironsides hotel, and now being  erected for Messrs. Jay P. Graves and  W. Yolen Williams, is well on towards  completion. The mine offices of the  Old Ironsides and Knob Hill will be  removed to this building as soon as  can be. Altogether is a geneial activity about these mines, which it is  believed have now fairly entered upon  a prosperous and profitable career.  CANADIAN PACIFIC IS  Smith...  & McRae  :: : COPPER STREET : : :  On Thursday, 23rd inst., the directors of the Boundary Creek Mining  and Milling company met in the company's office, Greenwood. Mr. Hector  McRae, of Rossland, representative in  this province of the London and Canada Syndicate, also attended, and informed the directors that a meeting of  the syndicate had been called for that  day in London, England, to consider a  proposal to sell 7,000 of the syndicate's  ��1 preference shares, the proceeds to  b. applied chiefly to the further development Qf the claims of the Boun  dary Creek Mining company,, near  Greenwood. It was also proposed to  endeavor to sell some of the McDonnell  ranch, situate about a mile north of  Greenwood, for residence or garden  purposes,, so as to increase the amount  to be available for mining work on the  claims. Mr. McRae promised to inform the directors the result of the  London meeting immediately after re-;  ceipt by him of advices from London,  England.  The sale of the company's diamond  drill was authorized and Mr. McRae  was. requested to try and find a"pur-  chaser. It was mentioned at the meeting that the London and Canada Syndicate had to date taken up, under their  option on the balance of the company's  treasury stock, 275;000 shares. Besides  these the syndicate had acquired at  least 400,000 shares from othe"r holders,  s d that its interest in the; company has  been increased to more than one-third  of the 1,500,000 shares which comprise  the whole of the stock. It was also  stated that the net proceeds of the two-  carloads of ore sent to Trail were; $3,-  759.39 and that this mohey.had already  been expended. It was decided to hold-  another meeting of directors as soon  after receipt by Mrr McRae of ^advices  from London as shall be practicable.:"  Development work will -shortly yt>7  resumed vat^tlie* 200-foot' 'level of?the  Snowshoe mine. The new boiler will  make available more power for pumping and hoisting, so that workniay  be done in the crosscuts from the main  shaft without interfering with the supply of compressed air for running the  machine drills, of which there are now  four or five on the mine. With wort-  being pushed at the 200-foot level and  as well at the.railway tunnel, now being run into the hii near the southern  boundary of the claim, the Snowshoe  should from this on make an increasingly good showing  As was expected, the shipment of ore  from the Buckhorn mine to the Trail  smelter gave very high results. W.  C. Noble, the resident representative  oE the company this week received a  cheque from the smelter representing  the net value of the shipment of 17  tons.   The ore gave $24.32 to the ton.  T.he__cqpper_v__L^_^_^-___5'inie _Per cent>  gold $5.70 and 30 cents^ in silver.  Other shipments will be sent from the  property.  The following gentlemen connected  with the British Columbia (Rossland  and Slocan) Syndicate, of London,  England, owning the Snowshoe mine  in Greenwood camp, arrived in Greenwood last Thursday and the next day  went up to the mine: Geo. S. Water-  ton, chairman of directors; Lewis  Jones, M. D., a large shareholder;  Anthony J. McMillan, managing director, and J. W. Astley, C. E., consulting  engineer. Mr. Geo. Holford, of England, also formed one of the party. A  week is being spent at the mine, which  is opening up very satisfactorily and  which will from this on be more expeditiously developed, now having  more steam power available for mining purposes. Mr. Waterlow and-Dr.  Jones will shortly return to England,  where they will be able to assure their  associates in this enterprise that the  mine gives much promise, both of permanency and value.  Mr. C. E. Laidlaw, of the banking  firm of Laidlaw & Co., New York  City, came in on last Friday night's  train and remained until Monday as  the guest of Mr. and Mrs. F. Keffer,  Anaconda. Mr. Laidlaw is treasurer  of the British Columbia Copper company, limited, so came in to see the  company's Mother Lode mine and  smelter. He visited as well the No. 7  mine in Central camp.  Everything at cost at the Government street Furniture Store, one block  north of Postoffice.  Preparing for a Large Output of Ore  From the Boundary.  Mr. W. O. Miller; of Vancouver, C.  P. R. car service agent, with head-  huarters. at Vancouver, and Mr. J. S.  Lawrence, of Trail, Columbia and "  Western railway trainmaster, came in  by last Thursday night's train. On  Friday they visited the several shipping mines in Summit, Wellington  and Greenwood camps, leaving Greenwood a special train at 7 o'clock in the  morning. From the mines they went  to Grand Forks; where they visited the  Granby smelter. Returning, they  reached Greenwood, at about 1a.m.'  On Saturday morning, in . company  with a Times representative, they  looked over the British Columbia Copper company's smelter at Greenwood, ���  Mr. Rudolf Liden, M. ^-> courteously  showing them around. Afterwards  they left for Robson on the ordinary '  train at.noon of the-same day.  From these officials lit was learned  that their particular business on this    ,  visit was to ascertain the number of  cars that will. be. needed for ore shipments, so that the requirements in this>*  direction of  the shipping mines may -  be amply provided for.   It is the intention of the C. P. R. to make such  provision   of   cars-as   will   leave   no   .  reasonable   grounds    for   complaint.  The situation having been carefully  reviewed there should now be no lack'  of transportation facilities.   If cars be  provided in sufficient number, as  it is   .  intendedthey should be, ore shipments  should speedily increase.   After seeing  the big ore reserves  at several of the  mines anck with the smelters at both  Trail and Grand Forks in readiness to  treat   large quantities of ore, Messrs.    .  Miller and Lawrence are of the opinion  that.it will not be-long- before the expectations of* the railway company, in_ ���  regard to outward.freight, will in soiije.  measure be realized.    It now appears  to rest very largely with mine owners   '  whether or_uot the mines of the district  shall fulfil the promise of an increasingly big output of ore that the public . 7  have frequently 1 been told they give.-  Transportation    and   ore    treatments  facilities   haying been   furnished the  time has now  arrived for a practicall  demonstration, by large shipments ot -  ore,   that'the; mineral resources of thq  Boundary areas extensive and important as they have hitherto been-repre-  sented to be.

"  When, any great enterprise is started  there are always those whose feitile  imaginations see failure and disaster.'  The Granby smelter did riot escape  their attention. Twenty-four.\ hours  after the smelter was blown in, .the  rumor was current that the furnace  had frozen., .:  Twenty-four hours\ after therumor  was first rhade public, a Times repre-;  sentative visited the Granby smelter  and found everything running1 as  smoothly as clock work. A 250-ton  furnace- is treating 275 tons of Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides ore 7;eyery  twenty-four hours. There 'has: riot  been the slightest hitch arid the big.  plant, from the power house: up, does  its work, like a veteran.' '   y.;'  While Greeii wood has riot the same  direct interest in the Granby smelter  that it has in that of the British Columbia -Copper'company, the fact.-is  now pretty generally recognized -that  all points of the Boundary district are  so bound -together that the failure or  success of an enterprise in brie portion  has its influence on the entire district;.  Hence, Greenwood like every -other  portion of the Boundary, breathes! iree  because^ the Granby smelter is a suc-  cesss, and because it has been detrion-  strated that the ore frbm representative Boundary mines can be treated at  ai^'profitr" Greeriwopd congratulates Mrr  Miner and Mr. Graves upon the success  of their'enterprise. .,.-'���*-*  The history- of the development of  the mineral resources of the'Bburidafy  country could not be-written without  devo'ing the greater portion to Miner-  Graves enterprises. " About three years  ago J. P. Graves turned his attention  to the development of the Knob Hill  and Old Ironsides mines. Behind him  was S. H. C. Mirier, a wealthy manufacturer of Granby, Quebec. No  stronger support could be secured.  Mr. Miner had plenty of courage, confidence and capital. "We have control  of everything but the ore. We did not  make that," was Mr. Miner's statement three years ago, "and we must  plan accordingly. Everything must  be based on the assumption that the  ores are to be treated at a profit." '. Interested in the copper mines of Michigan and knowing that the enormous  dividends paid by them was not because of high-grade ores but because  the cost of production was reduced to  the lowest possible amount, Mr. Miner  saw no reason why the same'principle  should no be applied in the Boundary  and the big bodies of ore exploited at  a profit. With this object in view the  smelter was built dn the North Fork,  e strearii was harnessed, not only,,to  'cure cheap power for the smelter, but  for the mines as well. It is the intention as soon as the big plant for the  mines is in place to transmit electrical  power from the power house, at the  smelter to Phoenix. A great saving  in the cost of producing ore will thus  be effected.        ���_-"'-  It is not surprising that Mr. Miner  should loolFss-tisfied as sat on the verandah of the Hotel Yale on Saturday  and looking up the North Fork saw  -the successful culmination of his three  The estimates were apparently an  earnest of the intention of the government to change the policy of the past  by giving the mining districts of the  interior a greater measure of justice in*  the matter of appropriations and ostensibly an acknowledgment of the fact  that more liberal treatment should be  accorded the sections of the province  that contributed the greater portion of  the general revenue. This at least  was the view taken by those directly  interested and they were prepared to  give due credit to the government.  But the introduction of an act doubling  the taxation on the mining industry  dissipated 'the congratulatory spirit of  the taxpayers in the Kootenays and  Boundary district, and they are now  coming to the conclusions that the additional appropriations were merely  intended as inducement to feel good  natured while taxation was being  doubled.  It is impossible to conceive how any  government imbued with a spirit of  fair, play or having the best interests  of the province at heait can continue  to\milk the mining districts forthe  benefit of the pocket borroughs. The  appropriations, have never been based  on the requirements of the district nor  upon the amount of revenue contributed but upon the voting power of a  constituency, no matter how small or  unimportant it might be. The doubling of the taxation on the mining industry even after making due allowance ifor the" small increase in .the  appropriations makes the injustice is  still more glaring.  7 Setting aside the injustice of the tax  itself, the method of collecting* it and  the espionage which the government  desires authority . to exercise are most  unsatisfactory. At the outset the bill  introduced says there shall'be assessed  levied arid collected quarterly from  every person owning, managing, leasing or working a mine, two per cent  on the assessed value of all ore or  mineral bearing substances, raised,  gotten or gained from any lands in  the province and which has been sold  or removed from the premises. "Not  satisfied with this the government  wants to know all about'the mine-  owners' business and adds:  The owner or manager of every mine  liable to pay the tax imposed hereby  shall, in addition to any other state-  merits "which may-be-required under  the provisions of this act and amendments, transmit within seven days  fjqm-the end of any quarter or period,  as the case may be, to the assessor for  the district in which the mine is  situate, a statement showing:  The amount of ore, minerals or mineral-bearing substances shipped or sent  from, or treated on, the mining  premises previous to the preceding  quarter or period in respect of which  return had not heretofore been received by the assessor:  The amount of ore, minerals, or  mineral-bearing substances shipped or  sent from the mine during the preceding quarter:  The name of the smelter or -mill and  locality to which the same are sent:  The cost. per ton for transportation  to smelter or mill:  The cost per ton for smelter or mill  charges:  The amount of ore, minerals, or  mineral-bearing substances treated on  the mining premises during the preceding quarter or period:  The value of the ore treated on the  mining premises, exclusive of the  charges for freight or treatment:  The value of the ore treated on the  mining premises, exclusive of the  charges for treatment.  Kootenay nor Boundary does not ob  ject to contributing to the revenue of  the province, but they do object to  paying more than a fair share and at  the same time having the development  of the district retarded by lack of  money to construct necessary roads to  open up new mineral regions.  efficient mail service between Penticton and Midway. The contract between the* department and Messrs'.  Snodgrass & Sons expired some time";  ago* and tenders were called for. a new  contract. Snodgrass & Sons -were,  again the lowest tenderers, but instead  of awarding the contract to them, "the  postoffice department sent .but a cheap  eastern man clothed with the, authority  to make such arrangements as would  cheapen the service. '������ He endeavored  to get a lower rate.from Snodgrass &  Sons, and failing in this, he made arrangements to cut the route into sections so that any person with a cayuse  or mule would be in a position to carry  Her Majesty's mail. It is apparent to  everyone acquainted with the country  that such a, service can give nothing  but dissatisfaction/The service to be  prmpt and efficient must be in charge  of one firm, so that they can maintain  proper, stages and good horses. - The  service should also be in the hands of  responsible persons. If the present intentions of the department are carried  into effect, we feel confident that it  will eventually cost the country a great  deal more than if the contract had  been awarded to Snodgrass & Sons  who, during the last four years, have  given a service not only satisfactory  to the postoffice department but to the  travelling public as well.  PENNY WISE POLICY.  The  postoffice department  are endeavoring to  disarrange the present  BOUNDARY HONORS MR. MINER.  As was so. aptly expressed by the  Rossland Miner, in referring to -Mr. S.  H. C. Miner. "Peace hath her victories  no less renowned than .var." The man  who has demonstrated, that here in  British Columbia a great industry can  be successfully carried, and who has  proved the great possibilities of the  Boundary country, assuring a large  population of happy, contented workingmen, is entitled to all honor. It  was a happy thought to tender Mr.  Miner a banquet tomorrow night and  the entire Boundary country should be  represented. Greenwood will send its  quota of representative men, and it is  hoped that every other part of the district will be represented.  PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

While.. Business is Being Expedited.  the Legislature-is-Not Devoid  of Amusing Incidents.  The'rapidity with which-public justness has been dispatched during the  past three days-has-revived the hope  that the legislators may be released  from their labors next Saturday. > The  optimism is by no means shared by all  - the members, and some especially prophesy another fortnight of deliberation; but some of the ministers prediet  the end next week, and it is evident  that an attempt will be made to polish  off the order paper in the next seven  days. True, eight jiew measures stand  in the name of the government on the  orders,, but -the rapid disposal of the  tedious amendments of the Vancouver  city-charter has brought the end immeasurably nearei.  One feature of the budget debate  was the care taken by several members  of the opposition���and the most prominent members���to disclaim any re  sponsibility for the actions or policies  of the Semlin administration. Mr  Curtis took especial pains to make his  position clear on this mat! er, and Mr,  Mclnnes absolutely disclaimed any  sympathy with the reduction of salaries  of civil servants made during the Sem-  lin-Martin regime. Mr. Brown even  drew the attention of the~minister- of  finance to the fact that some of the  civil servants had. been, overlooked in  the restoration of-.former salaries, Indeed, there ��,was a general disposition  on the opposition benches to justify  the rather heavy, expenditures in public works.  In the Vancouver city charter amendments passed .last night- was.-.a provision empowering<the oity council to  grant licenses to trading stamp .companies. A similar step is sought in  connection with Victoria city laws, a  deputation having waited on the gov  eminent a-few days and.in relation to  it. Thjs will give the city council con  trol over these companies, which may  be utilized in compelling them ,to pay  tribute to the city coffers.  The member from Delta, Mr. Oliver,  has to his credit the latest'joke on Mr.  McPhillips. During the long session  on Tuesday night, when the eloquent  junior member for Victoria was dis  coursing at length.to an almost "empty  house, the member for Delta interrupted hhn. to draw his attention to the  _ fact that-the press' gallery was empty,  the members of that hard, working  body "Raving fled- iucontinently-to- the  caterer to drown-- their sorrows. The  house laughed heartily, and acting on  the suggestion, soon afterwards ,rose,  Last night again, the gallery-referred - to in the i foregoing, .almost  worked .havoc.^with- Mayor Garden's  plans. It was noticed that the withdrawal >of two members.would, leave  the house without a quorum, and .a  ���message was .drppped -down to-the jol-  liest though most bored-looking member of the" administration that "four  bits would, break,the house,',' He.accepted the invitation with alacrity, and  in less time than it takes to tell the  tale the.necessary equipment for the  "breaking" of-the house was-passed-  up. The quorum was preserved,-however, by a long-sighted member who  caught the representative for East  'Yale just as he wasJeaving the chamber, ��� and thus saved the day and. the  -bill.��� The rage of the member for East  Yale, however, on-this-new development of prohibition, was pitiful to contemplate.  i The same evening was productive of  many amusing scenes. > Few>_took any  interest in the bill, and the chairman  of the committee rushed the sections  through so-.rapidly:i .that they >��� were  sometimes declared carried before  Mayor Garden got time to offer an  amendment. The monotony of the  task was very trying on the ��� members^  and frequent excursions to the lobbies  and restaurant-were made. .The senior  member for Cassiar struck upon a  happy device to get his rest and yet  assist in maintaining the quorum by  falling into a deep slumber in his chair.  His classic features in repose -were so  suggestive of a good appetite, and an  easy conscience thati other honorable  .. members found it difficult to believe  that there were ever mining difficulties  in Atlin or "culpable .stupidity." in returning officers at Bella Coola.  The municipal committee organized  yesterday with Mr. Helmcken as chairman aud Mr. Murphy as secretary.  ���Victoria Times.  WHICH IS IT?  A certain municipality, which shall  be nameless, -has preferred -,a^ series' of  requests to "tbe-:Members of the Com-,  mittee of the-Municipal- Clauses Act."  The suggestions are four in number,  one of them being for a verbal change  in the-Municipal Clauses Act. Another is that municipal councillors may  be permitted to-accept witness fees for  attending court: in cases where the  municipality-is involved. If this is  nota'fti.rk conspiracy to. enable .'members of the council tb-make a fair day's  wage for a fair .day.s loafing, it is dc  serving of more or less serious consideration. Another request is that  "members of a-municipal council may  accept salary for professional services  as city solicitor, health officer or engineer."   To the unprejudiced outsider,  it would seem as if a locality could no*  find men within its limits to  fill thes  offices without taking members of the  council, or .vice versa, there would   exist   at least   a   colorable   doubt   if it  ought to be incorporated.   In the interest of good municipal  government we  should feel called-upon to oppose such  a   suggestion,   if   any   attempt   were  .made to insert such  a law.    But it is  the remaining proposal of this municipality   which   is   calculated to contribute to the gaiety of nations.    The  municipality  asks to be allowed to exempt from taxation for a period of 3(  years  any  company that will erect a  smelter within   one  mile of  the  city  limits.    Sir Boyle Roche has evidently  some descendents iu this municipality  It is proposed to exempt from taxat' i_  ou   property   which-the municipality  could not tax any way.    A proposal to  relieve  a company  from taxes that i  would never be called upon to pay cer  tainly   has   the   merit   of     novelty.  "Thank   you  for nothing,*' would be  the company's answer.���Victoria Colonist.  *ssa&gzgsa&  STORY OF A SLAVE.

The mining committee of the legislature have introduced the following  amendment of the mineral act:  Section 8, "Mineral Act" :  . "Eivery person who mines for any  minerals for his own sole use and benefit on any crown lands in the province  of British Columbia without having  taken out and obtained a free miners-  certificate shall, on conviction thereof  in a summary way, forfeit and pay a  penalty not exceding twenty-five dollars, besides costs."  Section 25b be repealed and the following substituted therefor:  "25b. Upon the -failure of any one  of s'evera_'co-owners to contribute his  proportion of the expenditure required  by section 24 of this act, the co-owner  or co-owners who.have performed the  labor or made the expenditure may,  at the expiration of the year, give such  delinquent co-owner notice by publication in a newspaper published and cir-  cul'atitig hi the division in which the  claim is situated, or, in the absence of  such-local paper, in the nearest thereto,  for at least once a week for ninety  days, and if at the expiration of ninety  days of publication such delinquent  should fail or refuse to contribute his  proportion of the expenditure required  by said section 24, together with all  costs of advertising, his interest in the  claim- shall become vested in his co-  owners who have made the required  expenditure, pro rata, according to  their former interests, on the filing  with the mining recorder of the division  in which the claim is situated such notice in full, and there shall be attached  thereto an affidavit of the manager or  publisher of the newspaper in which  the notice was printed, stating the  date of the first, last, and each insertion of such notice therein, and where  and when the newspaper was published  during that time, and the name of  such newspaper. Such notice shall be  recorded as aforesaid within one hundred and twenty days, after the first  publication thereof."  Section 127 be repealed and the following substitued therefor:.  "127. The owner of a mineral claim  who has had his claim surveyed, and  has filed in the office of the mining recorder in the mining division in which  the claim is situated a declaration by a  provincial land surveyor, stating that  he has surveyed the claim as required  by sub-section (c) of section 36 of this  act, and has delivered to the mining recorder a plat of the claim and a copy  of the original field notes, and  delivered two copies of the plat and one  copy of the field notes to the owner,  then the owner of such claim shall be  entitled to have the cost of such survey, not to exceed one hundred dollars,  counted as work done on the claim, as  required by section 24 of this act."  Sub-section (h) of section 36 of chapter 135 of the Revised Statutes, 1897, is'  hereby repealed, and the following inserted in lieu thereof:-^^���^ -----=  "(h.) Twenty days after the expiration of the term of the said publication,  . unless a notice that an action has been  commenced and a copy of the writ in  such action have been filed in the office  of the mining recorder in the mining.  division in which the claim is situated,  the mining recorder shall forward to  the owner ^ or1 agent, under Form I of  the schedule to this act, the documents  referred to above, together with a certificate that the notice provided by section 36, sub-section (d), has been posted  in his office, and the field notes and  plan deposited for reference therein  from the date of the first appearance  of the said notice in the British Columbia Gazette, and continuously  therefrom for a period of at least sixty  days. The recorder shall also set out  in Form I the name of the recorded  owner of the claim at the date of signing the same."  The mining world will watch with-  interest the outcome of the problem  which the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  mines and the Granby Smelting company hare before them in making ores  which run a little over $8 per ton pay.  The mines and smelter are practically  owned by the same peop1e, and therefore are acting in harmony to work out  the question involved to a successful  issue. The conditions are favorable.  The ore bodies in the two mines involved are of great extent, and in one  there is said to be a solid acre of ore  ready. for the stopes. In all the departments of the mine the idea, kept  constantly in view, has been to put in  such labor-saving appliances that the  ore could be extracted at the rninimu.ri  cost. The closest attention will be  paid to details, and the appliances will  be added to aud improved front time to  time to get the cost of extraction even  under what it is at present.  A visit to the smelter of the Granby  company is sufficient tn convince the  most skeptical that no expense has  been spared to make the plant as complete, substantial and effective as it is  possible. Here, as much as possible,  the ore is handled automatically. In  addition to this the machinery is  operated by electricity which is generated from water power from a plant  owned by the company. This will  save the company a large sum annually, and will consequently considerably cut down the cost of smelting.  The management of the Le Roi recently announced that the cost of min  ing, including advance work, supenn-  teudence, transportation, smelting and  refining was $8 per ton. The ore  fr��m the l_.e Roi for one month recently  gave an average gold value of $16.60  to the ton and* netted a profit of ��8.60  on each ton. The cost of $8 per ton  for mining, reduction, etc.-j was made  under favorable conditions, The L��e  Roi has wide ore bodies, is not handicapped for want of money, and in addition to this, practically the same  people own the smelter and the mine.  The worst handicap was an insufficient  plant, but this has since been remdied  by the installation of a larger plant,  and the cost of mining, reduction of  the ore. etc., will iu time be brought  under $8 per,-ton by the T_.e Roi management.  ��� In the case of:.the Old ironsides,  Knob Hill and the-Granby smelter, we  believe, owing to the greater width of  the ore bodies that ore can be mined  from 50 cents to $1 per ton cheaper  than it can be here. With the water  power at the smelter and other labor-  saving devices, it seems evident that  ore can be smelted there at from 50  cents to $1 per ton cheaper than at the  smelter at Northport. It is claimed  that the ore from the Knob Hill and  the Old Ironsides does not need to be  roasted. This will effect another small  saving.  Under these circumstances there is  every reason to suppose that the Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides ore will yield a  profit just as soon as the smelter gets  Tnto "good working brder^of rat least  $1.50 to.the ton. If this is the case the  stockholders are assured of good profits  as there are many hundreds of thousands of tons in these two mines.���  Rossland Miner.  PREVENTED A TRAGEDY.

Visits- Greenwood.  Professor S. F. Emmons, of the  United States Geological Survey, has  been spending a part of a vacation at  Greenwood, and has been occupying  the greater part of the past two weeks  in ascertaining- the geologic conditions  obtaining in the Boundary Creek district, more particularly in the mining  camps immediately surrounding Greenwood, To a representative of the  Times he said that while he was not  yet familiar enough with the geology  of the district to say much about it he  . Was impressed with-the fa<Jt lhat the  larger ore deposits so far discovered iu  the dibtrict occur in limestone, generally more or less altered. This characteristic did not appear to be recognized  by .many. Another thing that struck  him was that owing tothe free growth  of timber and brush and to there being  much disturbed* matter overlying the  settled formations, the district is a difficult ' and expensive one to prospect.  As a consequence it is probable that  there are ore bodies that may not be  discovered -for some time to come.  Some ot those already discovered are  promising enough, but the question of  values has yet to be determined. He  had visited several of the min.es, and  had seen big ore shoots in the Mother  Lode and Knob' Bill. He was deferring visiting the B. C. mine as long as  possible in the hope that Superintendent Parrish", whom he had known in  Colorado, would return from Denver in  time to show him that property. From  the mining industry of this district in  particular, conversation turned to that  of- the province generally and especial  importance was placed by the professor  upon the Crow's Nest Pass'coal  ._ fields' which, as the mining industry  attains to larger proportions in the  Kootenay and Boundary, will be of increasing value to these districts.  Turning to the United States Geological Survey, the professor was good  .enough to respond to' a request for  some in formation as to its work. The  government of the United States now  makes an" appropriation of $750,000 per  annum for  this work.   Under the old  -arrangement the. division of the work  ��� was along geographical lines, officials  being - assigned separate districts,' but  -later the system was adopte'd of allot-  . ing". departments rather- than ^districts  to the officials severally. Professor  Emmons was accordingly given charge  .- of the geology of metallic minerals,  and so besides performing specific  duties in this connection, has the  general s'URe-.yisipn of all wofk <_n ore  jippo'��_ts'(lqne t'hd'.r t"ie auspices'of the  ��(_alogipal Stjrvpy. ' There are half a  , dpze'u pr  inqre qf these departments.  > For-instance, qne official has pharfle of  **the geology-of non.meti.Hic minerals,  1 such as ooaj, salt, etc.,* another of the  statistical department, and-so on. All  co-operate, however, so as to secure the  best- results possible. These results  .are,.-to a*large extent, published, so  that'; the 'public .may have the benefit  "of the valuable work done by the Geo-  ���logibal;Survey,-wliose publications are  ��� in the form- of monographs, bulletins  : and the annual report of the Director.  .-Monographs,   which   are   exhaustive  ' treatises  on .particular subjects, are  -published in what is known as government quarto.   Bulletins are short, less  exhaustive reports,- chiefly pf local interest, containing a few pages of small  . octavo.   Of each' of these some 3,000  ~< are ' usually  published,   and like the  .-folios-referred"to below, are sold at  about  cost of .production.   Some 10,-  . 000 copies of the director's annual report are printed each year and these  ' are distributed free by the survey department or by congress.   To an in;  'creasing extent these reports include  papers or contributions on special subjects. T|ie fg.fas are in size, 17x20,  apjl contain (1) the explanatory text;  (2) a topographical sheet; (3) an areal  gCQlPgy sheet, pving th,e different  geological formations without: regard  to their economic value or otherwise;  (4) an economic geology sheet, showing the formations containing valuable  minerals, coal being printed dark so  that its croppings maybe followed and:  iron, ���.silver, gold, etc.. 7 being printed  in  different  colors; (5) structure sec-  .���"*" tions'"��� arid ���". (6) columnar sections.  ..Aboiit  100  separate folios ha^e been  /-published,'?these selling at 25 cents  * each, and their, utility has been at-  -tested  Xiy  their Teady sale.   The'dg-.  ��� partme.Sjty ��as   its"  own   litho.graijhjc  '*e��tabjis^infr_t,   ��o, that its maps are  published under its- own  control and  the direction of an expert lithographer  : .who  possesses besides such scientific  *- ginjl geqjbg-ic knowledge ��js ensures tl_e  .acctiracy indispensable in such delicate  jrorir. , ~y-, .���"'.��� ,���-77      -     *' ''-7  'JVslfgdas tq tlie published results of his  7 own" work,* thei professor stated that  ' his first and most important book' was  a quarto volume on "The Geology of  he Mining Industry of L.eadville,  Colorado." A preliminary report was  published in 1882, but the book itself,  including an elaborate "atlas of 35  plates, involved so much work that.it  did not appear until 1886. So popular  did this,-.book -become that it- is frequently referred to as the "Miners'  Bible." Another work is a monograph on the Denver Basin, and still  one more, among many others, is on  the Silver Cliff district of Colorado.  Others now being prepared to be published next year are on the Butte district, Montana; on Mercur and Bingham' districts, respectively, in Utah,  on'the Black Hills, Dakota, and folios  on Silverton, Telluride and Reco districts in Colorado.  ' The professor who came over from  Rossland with Mr. C. E. Iyaidlaw, of  New York, treasurer of the British Co]  1-itnbia Copper company, will this  week return to that city, having been  requested to give expert evidence in  the Centre Star-Iron Mask case. It is  not too much to expect that the visit  of so eminent a geologist to the Boundary country will be of benefit to it,  especially if, as appears to be the case,  his opinions of it are favorable.

The council of the Board of Trade at  a meeting held this week passed the  following resolution which was wired  to Victoria :" " :"    '-���" '  " Whereas, the mining industry is  destined to be the most important  industry in the province and,is as yet  in Its infancy; and whereas the said  industry during the past twb years has  received.a serious set back, and whereas it is desirable to encourage' and not  discourage capital. Be it therefore  resolved that in the opinion of this  board any increase in the taxation of  of mines at the present time will be  highly injurious, and be it further resolved that this board respectfully protest against the proposed increase in  such taxation."  The council also wired the post  office department protesting against  cutting up the mail route to Penticton  and thus endangering., the efficency of  the service. T  GATEWAY LODGE 1.0. 0. F.  Geo.

Instituted at Grand Forks by Members  of Greenwood Lodge.  Fifteen -Greenwood Odd Fellows,  headed" by "~District"Deputy "Grand  Master Law, went over to Grand Forks  on Friday last and installed Gateway"  L<odge No. 45. _ In addition to the  Greenwood visitors there .were representatives of lodges from Rossland,  Carson and Republic. The lodge was  installed in the afternoon and the night  was spent in revealing to 22 new members the mysteries of Oddfellowship.  Grand i- orks has one of the strongest  lodges in the province. Its members  are wide-awake and many of the offiV  cers elected are experienced Odd Fellows who have been through the different chairs in lodges elsewhere.Their experience will be of the greatest advantage to the new lodge. The following  are the officers elect: N. G., F. E.  Cooper; V. G.,A. G. Clements; R. Sec,  G. T. Park; P. Sec, A. E. Savage;  Treas.,' F. Clark; R. S. N. G., I. A.  Dinmore; I.. S. N. G., Thos. Power;  R. S. V. G., H. Grant; __,. S. V. G., M.  C. Davidson; R. S. S., E. Bercars;  L. S. S., B. Thomas; I. G. D., D. Munroe; O. G., G. R. Robertson; Chap., W.  H. Bradshaw; warden, Thos. Black.  The members of Gateway Lodge are  not only good Oddfellows but they are  also most hospitable entertainers.  There was nothing too good for the  visitors. About midnight over 70 Oddfellows sat down to a sumptuous banquet at the Yale Hotel, tendered to the  visitors by the local lodge.. As there  was considerable work yet to be done  the speeches were short. Next morning carriages were provided and the  visitors taken to see the big smelter  and dam.  The future of a city depends on the  character of its citizens and since the  representative men of Grand Forks are  members of Gateway Lodge, there is  every assurance that not only Gateway  Lodge but the Gateway City will grow  strong and healthy.
