The gallows is strongly put. together  and is a credit' to foreman carpenter  Finlay Fraser, in whose hands General  Manager Keffer left the work of construction with instructions to make a  really good job of it. These instructions have been faithfully carried out.  The old gallons frame was removed  during the'Christmas holidaysand the  old sheave wheel was placed temporarily on the new frame so as to avoid any  interruption in hoisting operations,  pending the completion of the new gallows, which will have two large sheave  wheels for use after the two new safety  platform cages now at the mine shall  have been installed in'the shaft. The  work of erecting the large Jenckes  hoisting engines, recently received at  the- mine, will be commenced next  week and it is anticipated that these  will be in working order before the  close of January. In this plant -the  Mother Lode will possess the second  largest hoist in the Province, the only  larger, one being that at the Le Roi  mine, Rossland. The big Ingersoll-  Sergeant air compressor is now well on  towards completion and it is an engine  that the whole district-may well be  proud of, espeoially since it is the  |"Tplu'riW:i-i_' the more powerful machine?  which the rapidly enlarging mining  operations of the districts* will require  to keep pace with developments that  are now assuming extensive proportions. Other evidences of activity ind  substantial progress at the Mother  Lode mine are the approaching completion of the ore sorting and sampling  plant, with its solid raasonry foundation for engine and rock crusher and  its long run-way "for waste belt conveyor; the completion of a wing of a large  new bunk house and of a roomy boiler  house; the erection of a commodious  building to house the .new hoisting  engines and protect the main shaft,  and of .a"smaller but qomfortable.build-  -ing for reading"room,.'entertainment  and church*service purposes.*'  Three big stopes have*- been opened  at the 200 and -f00-foot l$vel' and in  each of these there is an . extensive  showing.of'ore of an average 'good  grade. The north drift at the 300-foot  level has" aTfull-face" of .excellent ore  and a new crosscut to the-west at the  same level is also in good ore. There  are now easily a dozen places in the  mine where- large stopes.can be worked  so that the question is not asto whether  there is ore accessible in sufficient  quantity to supply . the company's  smelter continuously but just now as  how best to get the ore to the surface so as to keep the workings clear.  However this difficulty will, it is anticipated,1 be quite overcome within the  next month: or six weeks and thereafter  the regular output of the ^nine will  make a, considerable addition to the  total value of the- mineral product of  the district and Province at large.  At "the company's smelter also much  work   has   lately   been   accomplished  towards   getting  the plant   and,, machinery in running order.   Iri the engine, blower and boiler house there remains but little now to be done.   The  three  big boilers  have been built in,  eugine   and. blower  is    up  and   the  dynamo and other electric lightplant is  being installed.   Near-by the blast furnace house'has been.built, the furnace  erected, and  the blast pipe to connect  blower and furnace is now being put in  place.   The  water service is all ready  far connection with the water jackets  of the  blast  furnace.   The sampling  mill machinery is the least forward of  any about the works, the arrival of the  engine, which is to furnish it with motive power, having been  delayed, but  the greater part of this sampling plant  is in the mill and is being put together  as  speedily as possible.    About 5,000  tons  of ore have been received at the  smelter and the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  company has been notifiedlhat coke is  wanted at once, it being the  intention  of   the British  Columbia Copper company   to   have .1,000 or 1,500 tons on  hand  before   blowing in the furnace.  The ore bins are to be   roofed in, but  this construction work will not involve  any   further delay in  starting actual  smelting.    The   smelter   assay   office  was fully equipped  about two months  ago   and   since  that time has been in  frequent   use   ascertaining values   of  the  oresVas these 'have been.received  from   the   mine.    Altogether  matters  have been so well advanced lately that  another month.or six weeks should see  the works in full operation.   This long-  looked  for   consummation' will   be a  source of much  satisfaction, not only  to   the British Columbia Copper company, to whose enterprise  and energy  this   industry will owe its existence,  but to the district, which is also deeply  interested in its successful establishment.

He stated that he had made a contract-  to deliver 700 tons of copper matte per  month* in New York and 200 tons additional in Liverpool, England. This  would mean an income to the syndi-  of $1,500,000 to 52,000,000 per annum.  Graves further announced that a charter would be obtained -next session of  the British Columbia legislature for  granting a consolidated mining, smelting and.power company with a capital  of fifteen millions. Ten properties are  included in the amalgamation���Knob  Hill, Old Ironsides, Gray E-igle, Granby smelter, Grand Porks and Carson  townsites, sawmills, electric plant, etc.  Concerning dividends, Graves said as  soon as reorganization is effected the  company will be in a position to discuss matters.  SIMILKAMEEN   COAL.  Coal mining had'quite a boom in the  district lately, there being now no  fewer than 24 claims staked in the  vicinity o_f Princeton. The banks of  the Tula'meen and Similkameen rivers  from ths forks are all located, in fact  several of the claims will overlap considerably, so anxious have several  parties been to secure ground. The  fact that a railroad is almost sure to  be built through this country next year  and the.immense market for coal in the  Boundary oountry, has been the. incentive to secure locations. Several of  the new finds have very promising  croppings, the Albion claim especially  (owned by T. J*. Swanborough) showing a splendid seam of coal.���Princeton Star.  AMONG THE MINES.

Work is Being Rushed and it  ' Will Soon be Reducing  Boundary Ore,  A't the Standard Pyritic Smelting  company's smelter, substantial progress has been made. The buildings  to cover ore bins, sample mill, engine,  .blower, boilers and furnace are practically .finished. The two 80-horse  power boilers.and the feed-water heater  are in position, as, too, are the_blower  and engine. The sampling machinery  is being put in and the furnace is how  in course of erection.- The flue dust  chamber has been extended to 250 feet  in length. A 100-foot by 9 feet 6-inch  steel smoke stack, which will.stand on  a 14-foot brick base, will be., raised in  the course of a few days. A 180-light  electric, light plant is on hand ready  for installation. A spur line has been  run in on the level from the Columbia  aud Western railway, at the south end  of the, works, and the trestles are  framed and will shortly be raised to  carry the track from the railway main  line at the north end, thence up over  the ore bins. The assay office has  been built and furnished v. ith all apparatus- and supplies necessary for ore  testing purposes; the general offices  are built and are being fitted up and  the dam, ditch and flume for the water  service are almost ready for use: The  Standard Pyritic Smelting company  has also acquired the Boundary Falls  water power, but this will not be utilized until after the smelter shall have  been, started. It is thought that preparations for blowing in the furnace  will be completed by about February  1st. but no definite date for this im-  oortant event can just now be given.  LONDON COMEDY COMPANY.  The London Comedy company made  a decided hit at the Auditorium Monday evening. lOvery member of the  company is an artist. They are playing to a full house at the Auditorium  tonight. The company will go on the  road, appearing at Grand Forks, Nel-  snn. and other towns.  The report is current that early in  the year development will be resumed  on the Last Chance and Yellowstone  properties in Skylark camp. The Last  Chance is owned by a Spokane company, is equipped with a plant and has  had considerable work done .on. it.  Chicago capital is how interested in  the Yellowstone group, a deal having  recently been perfected by Harry  Shallenberger and R. McCullough, the  owners.  ON THE NORTH FORK  A New Section That is At.  tracting the Attention of  Mining   Men.  MERRY XMAS TO ALL.  Don't forget the South _3nd grocery  store when you are buying candies,  fruit and groceries.  There are several promising properties under development along the  north fork of the Kettle river, of which  little is heard over here. Among them  is the Humming Bird mine, owned by  the Humming Bird (B. C.) Gold Mines,  Limited, of Rossland. Yesterday a  Times representative visited -the property, situated 5 miles east f rotn Ejholt,  on the main wagon road that follows  the west bank of the river, north and  south. The Humming Bird was located by Morris O'Conner and John  Russell in the summer of 1895. This  year the present company acquired the  property and work of developing the  claim was placed in charge of E. W.  Liljegran, a former superintendent of  the Le Roi. Besides a considerable  amount of surface prospecting in the  shape of open cuts exposing the vein,  two tunnels have been driven. In the  upper tunnel, pre was encountered  within a few feet of the portal and was  followed down for nearly 100 feet by an  incline. Then it was decided to run  the lower tunnel, uowiu about 150 feet,  with a splendid face of ore. The tunnel  started as a crosscut, and in a distance  of 100 feet was turned sharply to the  north at a point immediately under the  ore, it only requiring a raise of six feet  fo tap the ore overhead. A connection  was also made, in ore, between this  tunnel and the winze from the upper  tunnel. The vein lies in a lime formation, averages 3l/2 feet in width, and  contains iron sulphides with a little  copper. The piincipal values are in  gold, assays running $26.48 to $42.24.  The property has sent out a considerable amount of ore to the Granby  smelter, but for the present shipments  have been suspended, awaiting "a proper condition of the road to the railway  for sleighing. In the ore bins are some  80 tons of pay ore. When the inine resumes shipping the ore will probably  go to the Pyritic smelter as the management have been offered a rate of  something les5 than $5 for transportation and treatment. This however does  not include the cost of hauling from  the mine to the railway, which will  probably amount to $1 per ton. The  daily output will be about a car.  The year just brought to a close has  been-a memorable one for the Boundary  Creek district.   The completion of the  Columbia and Western railway to Midway  and the   building   of   numerous  spurs to   the different camps gave a  much   needed impetus to the mineral  development of those sections tapped  by   the   road.    Claims that had been  idle  awaiting for the installation of  proper   machinery   plants   before  de-v*  velopment at depth could be prosecuted,  have to a large extent been  equipped, - -  and the district has advanced from an  era of prospecting development only, '  to that of production.     A notable iucL- -  dent that in a large degree marked the  turning   point in its- history was the  blowing in of the first furnace of the  Granby   smelter,   at Grand Forks on  August 21st.  shortly followed "by the  second, and today this plant is reduc-'  ing  600 tons, of ore each twenty-four ���  hours, _ So successful' has this undertaking, been that the plant is to be immediately doubled in capacity,* and its  output of matte will exceed $2,000,000 '  yearly.   In   .demonstrating,   as    the  Granby smelter has that the low-grade  ore'bodies of the district can be treated  at a profit, it has opened the way in a  great measure to the introduction of  capital into other reduction enterprises  that   mean   much  to securing to the  mine owner a most reasonable charge  for the treatment of his product.    During ��� the  past year work has been in  progress on-pJant<* ��mder construction  by the British  Columbia Copper company and the.Standard Pyritic Smelting company,in the immediate vicinity,  of Greenwood and when they shall be *  blown    in      some    time     in,     Feb-  ruary,    the   combined   tonnage ' of ,  the three smelters will amount to 1,200  tons daily, to be rapidly increased to  1,800 when the two additional furnaces '  are in operation at the Granby.   That  a fourth: smelter   will be constructed  this year somewhere in the district is  assured by the management of the Dominion Copper company, and it is not  drawing on one's immagination in for-  casting that both the B. C. in Summit  camp and the Snowshoe" in Phoenix  camp will in time each have its own  reduction works.  It is said that the Athelstan mine in  Wellington camp has been sold.-The  Phoenix pioneer has the following on  the subject: "This week a most important mining deal was made by which  the control of the Athelstan mine.'will  pass into the hands of Montreal capitalists represented by Clarence Mc-  Quaig. This is the syndicate that  owns the B. C. mine in Summit camp,  and Manager Parrish, of that property,  made an examination of the Athelstan.  The option for the Athelstan is for  815.0,000, is for a short time only, and  those interested are confident that its  terms will be complied with." A  Times representative had a chat over  the 'phone with S. F. Parrish, manager of the B. C. mine, Saturday evening, asking for a confirmation of the  sale, and was informed that Mr. Parrish knew nothing of the deal and denied having ever been near the mine  for the purpose of making an examination. While there seems to be little  doubt that a'sale is in progress, mining men here are of the opinion that  the B. C. Chartered Company has  nothing to do with it.  W. H. Thomas of New York, a prom:  inent mining engineer is a guest at the  Hotel Armstrong. During last week  he was up at the Oro Denero mine,  Summit camp, making an,extended examination, presumably for New York  clients. Mr. Thomas was here some  weeks back making a study of conditions in Deadwood camp, especially the  Mother Lode mine, on behalf of his  people, who are large shareholders.  During the course of driving 500-feet  of tunneling on the Snowshoe ia  Phoenix camp three distinct ledges*  were crosscut. The winze sunk at a  point 100 feet from the portal of the  tunnel in ore, has reached a depth  of  (Coucladed ou Fourth Page)  :..;yiy: ' '���     - *���' i f  w  December 27, 1900.  d-Mri^a  I have added to the equipment of my dental office an  apparatus for' the administration of  Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen  for dental operations.

Weekly Cimes*  PUBLISHED BY  The Greenwood Times Printing and Publishing  Company, Limited.  Duncan Ross , ..Editok.  When   bells are rung,   guns" fired,  whistles blown and other noises manufactured for the purpose of welcoming  the New Year, the conglomeration of  sound will have more than the regular  annual   import.   It will   be a hearty  expression of welcome, not only of a  new year, but a. new century as well.  The   time, would   be, a proper one to  make referencr  to the many changes  that have- taken placei and the great  strides   that   have   been   made   from  every   standpoint during the century  just   closing, and also to the world's  bright outlook during the century that  will begin.   There is in this food for  several   columns  of editorial .but the  Times will  content itself with a brief  reference to the bright outlook for the  city with whose  interests it is identified,   The year 1901 gives promise of  being an importantbne.for Greenwood.  Whether- -the, city_will* reap the full  benefit will depend upon its citizens.  Greenwood is developing against ad-  ���_ver.se  circumstances, into  what it is  destined to be the commercial center of  the    Boundary    district.   "V?ith   two  smelters; nearly, completed and others  about to be erected, with a healthy development in  the'mining camps contiguous to the city, and with a mining  ���district   that is rapidly  growing into  greater   favor in  the financial world,  the possibilities of the city are enormous. _ -  To reap the greatest benefit it will  ''  be necessary.for the citizens to take a  definite course of -action.   In the first  place our own house  must be put in  order.   The credit of the city must be  restored.   This can easily be done by  the exercise of a reasonable amount  of municipal statesmanship.   The city  ~~ must-"al��c^ibeT"bro_fght~into~-t}ie-- very-  closest contact with tlie mining camps  surrounding it.    During 1901 the tramway   scheme should   be carried   into  effect and  all the mines'brought into  touch with the city.   The "scheme is a  perfectly feasible one an^l can be carried out if the finances of ^he city are  placed in good order and a better credit  established for the city.  That Boundary is to be a great mining district even the most conservative  now admit and there is no reason  why Greenwood should not be an  equally great and important city.  Everything depends upon the wisdoni  and enterprise of her citizens. The  year 1901 should be the most important  in her history.  '.EDITORIAL NOTES.  have opportunities of explaining my  views at length. Briefly stated. I atn  in favor of the following:  The present state of city finances  and the stringency of the money market make it impossible to enunciate  a well defined policy of public improvements. An adequate system of waterworks is necessary and also some suitable plan of sewering the city, but  these and other improvements must be  deferred until thc city is in a better  financial position. I confidently believe that bjr the exercise of wise judgment, the finances of the city can be  placed upon such a sound footing that  necessary public works can be constructed without placing excessive burdens upon the present taxpayers.  The credit of the city must be restored  and maintained. Litigation should  be avoided and I am in favor of au  amicable settlement with those who  have just claims against the corporation.  If Greenwood is to occupy the prominence to which she is entitled by natural advantage, the city must be  brought into the closest touch with the  surrounding mining camps. Dining  1901 every effort should be made to  secure the construction of the tramway  without imposing additional burdens  on the ratepayers beyonfl those to  |..w-hich they are already pledged.  The strength of every city, particularly one situated in the heart of a  mining district, lies in its workingmen'  and its future depends upon them. I  am in favor of recognizing their claims  to proper'protection. I believe eight  hours should constitute a legal day's  work and this principal should be  adopted by the municipality. Generally  speaking, I am in favor of  municipal work being carried on by  day labor,, but in the event of contract  work being necessary, I would insist  that contractors should pay the current  wage. ..���'���;:";  I am opposed to the employment. of  Chinese and the encouragement of  Chinese immigration and any power  granted to the'corporation by the  Municipal Clauses Act should, be exercised to the fullest extent in restricting  their employment in the city.  The mayor's time should be devoted  to the work of the city. I am not rich  enough to do this without compensation and if elected I will expect a sufficient sum to properly represent the  city without loss to myself.  The first of each year, estimates-  should be prepared giving each section  of the city an equitable share of the expenditure and these estimates should  be religiously followed.

The 20th century fiend is not so active at present as he Vas in the dying-  days of 1899. At that time, yard after  yard of space was occupied in attempting to prove that the nineteenth cen-  -tliry ended with the year 1899 and that  January 1, 1900 ushered in the  twentieth. The poor fellow exhausted  his resources so that he has but little  to say this year.

When the copper mines of the Boundary district are  developed  to   great  depth there will be many- equally  as  rich,   and  perhaps   larger  than  the  famous producer of Michigan the Calumet & Hecla, which last Saturday filed  articles of association in renewal with  the county clerk   at   Houghton.    The  corporate existence  of  the company  will expire April 21,  1901.   In   a   few  months  less   than   thirty   years,   the  company has paid dividends of $70,000-  000, andby the end of next April will  have added $4,000,000 more, in all Hke-  lihood-the-largest---Sum__ever^paid_Jn^  dividends by any mine in   the  world.  The sum $73,000,000 odd by the Consolidated California and  Virginia  from  the Comstock lode, silver, is the largest  record at present.   It is expected  that  the No. 5 shaft, the great shaft* of the  Tamarack, will reach the Calumet lode  by the end of this   week.   At   present  neither the shaft, nor any of the crosscuts started therefrom, have  reached  the Calumet vein,  but   every   indication i_i the Tamarack and in the Calumet points to the bottoming of the No.  5 shaft in as rich ground as   has   ever  been opened either in the  Calumet   &  Hecla or the Tamarack.   In   fact,   the  lode in its richest part   at   this   point  should contain about five per cent  of  copper; although working the lode the  full width and stamping   poorer  rock  from lean sectiods of the mine,  should  give a net result of not more than three  per cent copper in the rock.   The Nos.  3 and 4 shafts of Tamarack are still in  ground as "rich as mud."  BAUER & ASHCROFT,  '���������-������..

WestKOotenay Company Will Increcse  Its Power Plant.  Mr. A. Lome Campbell, manager  for the "West Kootenay Power and  L,igh t company, has.returned from the  east after an absence of three weeks.  "While he was away he visited Chicago,  Dayton, 6., Schenectady, Buffalo,  Toronto and Montreal. His mission  east was to arrange for the building bf  the machinery, water wheels, dynamos,  generators, etc., for-the proposed increase of 20,000-horse power which is  to be- added to the plant of the company at Borming-ton Fall's. Mr. Camp-..  bell reports that two engineers are at  work at Bonnington Falls surveying  and preparing the' plans for developing the" water power there. At the  headquarters of the Canadian Electric  company in Toronto a number of  skilled men are at work preparing the  plans for the generators and wheels.  The work is now well in hand, and  will be pushed to completion as rapidly  as possible. "While he was away he  f visited the works of the Edison Electric  J company in Schenectady, in whichS,-  |O00 men are employed.  The machine shops in Toronto, Montreal and Peterboro are running night  land day, and have orders for seven or  jeight   months   ahead.    It shows that  JCanada is enjoying a period of great  industrial activity when there is such  . demand for machinery of   all   sorts.  great  deal of mining machinery is  _eing turned out.  The people of Eastern Canada are  pleased with the manner in which the  tines of this section are turning out,  ind are maaifesting an increased interest. This is particularly the case  Montreal. There the people are  king favorably of the mines of the  Cootenays and Yale, and the outlook  that they will invest considerable  Jioney here during the coming year.  Toronto the people were hit pretty  f.ard a" year or ���two since in stock  'peculation, but they are commencing  ') look with favor again on the mines  fi this section. Indeed; everywhere in  Astern Canada the impression seems  -jncral' that there* is going to be a revival inmining in the year 1901.  ing every faith in its future, and there  has been a decided eagerness manifest  of late to secure good prospects and au  equal willingness to invest in a large  way in their development. This is the  staj_e in the growth of a mining camp  that means real progress and steadily  increasing wealth. ��� Spokesman-Review.  THE HOLLOW SQUARE.  H/adies of Canada:  Thhe hollow square, a purely British  military tactic, was never broken but  once. "Why? Because Tommy Atkins  from Canada and Tommy Atkins from  all other ^ British possessions stand  solidly together. The lesson is, that  in a commercial way algo, the colonies  should stand firmly together; and the  ladies of Canada ��� the purchasing  power���can do much toward accomplishing "that end.
