Drilling at Volcanic
Boundary Mines Shipped Nearly 75,000
Tons Last Month.
Phoenix Men Invest in a Mine Running 40 Per Cent Copper.
Interesting Mining Notes From All the
Boundary Camps.
At the Volcanic group, North Fork
of Kettle river, diamond drill operations have been started. A building
iu which the plant is situated lias
been erected by the contractors,
Bowles Bros., of Spokane. The
wenther will thus lie unable to interfere with the work, which will be
continued day and night. Alex
Meads, M.I,, of Marquette, Mich.,
arrived in the city last Thursday.
He will be the resident engineer at
tbe Volcanic on behalf of tbe Volcanic Mining and Smelting Development eompany, which has acquired
an option on thc properties. Mr.
Meads is a graduate of tbe Michigan
SUvte School of Mines, and has bad
charge of various copper mines in
Onuinogan county. Recently he
has been in charge at Marquette of
tbe local blast furnace which he designed and built on behalf of thc
owners. The output is '200 tons
of pig iron daily, besides various
chemical by-products, Mr. Meads
is delighted to return to the Boundary district, with whose mineral
resources ho was greatly impresbed
during his first trip here last July.
*   *   *
James Marshall, G. W. Rumberger
and J. B. McAulay, of I'hoenix, have
purchased outright the Lottie 'F.
mineral claim, located 85 miles
from Phoenix, or some 45 miles from
Canyon City, which is on the main
Kettle river, nnd but a few miles
from the surveyed route of the Midway it Vernon railway, which is expected to be started next spring.
The claim is favorably situated, nnd
the shaft now on the property is all
in ore, which can be seen to
run high in copper, even to a
novice.   Several tests   which   have
been made show thc specimens to
give 40 per cent copper, to say nothing of snmll gold and copper values.
It is the intention of thc purchasers
to do development work on the property in the spring, and probably
ship some of thc ore that is now on
the dump.
* *   *
Definite returns of the November
ore shipments have been made from
most of the larger mines that contributed to the lar,*e tonnage sent
out during tbat month. Tne totals
for each mine, as nearly as can be
ascertained, were as follows:
Granby mines 45,122
iMotl.erI,ode  12,992
ISnowshoe  6,802
]Suuset     800
. Emma  3,406
,Oro Denoro  3,2311
I Winnipeg      405
Athelstan-Jackpot   1,486
I    Total 74,401
I The monthly pay rolls of the
[Greenwood smelter, Mother Lode
mine, Boundary Falls smelter's Sunset mine and the high grade mines
surrounding Greenwood aggregate 0
grand total of over $4(1,000 a month.
In October tbe B. C. Copper company's payroll alone wns over (22,-
000, nnd for November it wns 821,-
750. The payroll nt the Boundary
Falls  smelter  is  about 18000   n
month.
* *   *
About $60,000 were distributed in
wages by the Granliy nnd Smnvshoe
mines in Phoenix camp at their
Inst paydays,
The two locomotives which will
replace horse powei  in the Granby
mines nt Phoenix, have been shipped
from the makers, the Davenport
Machine Works, Davenport, Iowa,
and should arrive in that camp
any day and be placed in commission.
The balance of about $5000 on the
bond on the Elkhorn, due from McDonald and Sutherland on the 9th
inst., wns in the bank to meet it
some weeks previous, being the net
returns from ore shipments from this
high grade property, which adjoins
the Providence.
The second steam shovel was
placed at work in the Granby mines
at Phoenix Inst week. All three
shovels nre now busily nt work. The
C. P. K. shovel, not being so conveniently fitted for tbis special work
ns tbe new ones, requires a locomotive to wait on it all the time moving curs.
*   *   *
Tomorrow is the date sot for the
payment of the dividend of 8133,-
030 by tbe Granby Consolidated, being nt the rate of 1 per cent quarterly on the issued capital of the
company. This is said to be the
largest dividend every paid at one
time by any mining company in
British Columbia.
Thc Gold Bug, in Providence
camp, has been added to the list of
shippers. A car of ore wns hauled
to the Greenwood smelter last
week.

A gentlemap wdio bus net -d in tbe
capacity of lineman for tbe C. P. R.
company for tbe past three years,
left the early part of last Week for
parts unknown, presumably for the
benefit of bis health. He, however,
neglected to call on his friends before departing to liquidate bis various liabilities, contracted from time
to time, und owing to this fact will
lie seriously missed, as the amounts
run up to three figures in some in*
stances. His name will appear in
several'journals on tbe profit nnd
loss sheet at the close of tbe year.
Before departing be sold bis household effects to tbe second-hand
dealer. Among these goods were
several articles belonging to friends,
who hud loaned tbem to hill] when
be wns ill lust winter. These people
hnd lo pay cash to get their property buck. Words fail to sufficiently
express the contempt honest people
have for so unscrupulous methods us practiced by tbe missing lineman, and none but a blackleg would
be guilty of tbem. Some means of
protection should be bud from
such people, ns cases of this nature
are frequently occurring. It is only
n short time ago since certain parties
running a hotel in this eity were
found missing one fine morning,
leaving behind tbem many'creditors
to mourn their loss, or rather the loss
of sums ranging from 82 to 1200,
And these people are now trying to
collect bills—through a resident
agent—due them at the time they
eft, at tbe same time leaving tbeir
own liabilities unpaid.

The City" Council
Aldermen Spend a Pleasant Evening in
Council Chamber.
No Visible Signs of the Recent Struggle Over the Salary
By-law Were Apparent on Their Placid
Countenances.
The regular weekly meeting of the
eity council was held last night in
the council chamber. Those present were Mayor Burrell, Aid. Martin, McCallum, Gaw, Feeney and
Peterson.
The session last night wns noted
for its quietness. There wns simply
no life to the proceedings. Aid. Mc-
r.ellun wns absent, which fact no
doubt explains the prevailing list-
lessness of the members. Looking
at the placid countenances of Aid.
Gnw, Feeney and Peterson one would
never have imagined that such a
trilling affair as a salary by-law bad
but quite recently ruffled their
spirits. A whisper might be caught
on one or two occasions about an
'■injunction on the treasury"—only
ibis and nothing more. Possibly
they were wondering if tbe injunction would be lifted by the 25th,
so that the salary cheques might
find tbeir way into their stockings
on Christmas Eve. The new brand
of coal thc city is using at present
was not commented on very favorably by the aldermen last night, ns
thc council chamber appeared to be
very chilly.
A communication wns rcud from
pond. It Is Stater] by those wdio nre
noxious for such n step, thnt tbe
ice call be elenned off und kept in
good condition for $25 or $30 n

there should be no difficulty in getting the amount subscribed at once
ind get the scheme in operation.

of jewelry and Christmas goods from
Toronto over six weeks ago, but up to
the present time be bus been unable
to locate tbem. They are 111 transit

the Nelson city council, asking the
co-operation of the Grand Forks
council in bringing the question of
building a borne for incurables, at
some suitable locality within the
province, to the notice of the provincial government. A resolution
was passed by tbe Nelson council at
their last meeting drawing the attention of tbe government to tbe fact
that municipalities and hospitals
were often taxed with the aire of incurables, when they should be provided for by the province. A similar
resolution was passed by the Grand
Forks council and ordered forwarded
to the government.
Thc road lax amendment by-law
was reconsidered and gnally passed.
The case of W. Dinsmore against

''RIDAY,    DECEMBER 11,  1903
It is pretty hard to tell just where
the McBride government stands
these days. So far the session of the
bouse bus been one of busty legislation. Bills nre being put through
at a rapid rute irrespective of public
opinion. The assessment net bus
been enacted into law, despite thnt
protests huve been entered from every
quarter of the province. Resolution
after resolution bus been passed by
th ■ different boards of trade throughout British Columbia and wired to
tbeir respective members at Victoria,
but apparently without avail. McBride sgid it must become a law, and
with tho aid of the Socialists, who
nre only too anxious to tax all
corporations, succeeded in rushing
it through.
pants are well known and highly
esteemed in the Golden City, nnd n
host of good wishes go with them
for a long and happy married life.
The marriage was celebrated at the
residence of H. E. Smith, Washington street nortli, Rev. John Clelund,
rector of St. George's church, officiating. Among the guests present
were Geo. Hull, postmaster of Grand
Forks; Frank E. Dockerill and wife,
of Trail, and Mrs. .1. VV. Stewart, of
Grand Forks.
Rev. Dr. Wright left for Rossland
Saturday, and he conducted
services in tho Presbyterian church
of that citv lust Sunday.
The first issue of Col. bowery's
Poplar Nugget bus reached The
Sun exchange table. It is bright
editorially—as ull tbe colonel's pub-
lications usually arc—and contains
all tbe news of the phenomenal free
gold camp. It is an interesting
paper, nnd will undoubtedly become very popular nil over the province ns well ns in Poplar.

A radical change from old methods und prices was announced by
the Toronto News tbis week. The
eyes of the newspvper world huve
been upon Tbe News for tbe pttst few
months, during which time several
departures have been niiide which
huve given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise nnd originality. This latest move is to place
Tbe News nt tbe price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in tbe future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, Tbe News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, bused not only on the popular  price   at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits  of
tbe paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which will enable us to club The
News witli our own paper nt $2.25 n
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique  features

Xt Is recanted Pt Mr. W. 8. Gilbert
that on hewing of the title of Henry
Arthur Jones' new play, "The Prln-
cesn's Nose," he remarked, *'I hope It
may run Ion.-?."
United Stales Senator Hoar received
word the other day that a friend, who
had been supposed to have appendicitis, was aulltrln-j not from that ailment, but from acute Indigestion.
•"thut is good newB," said the Senator.
"I rejoice that the trouble lies In thd
table of contents rather than In tho
appendix."
Samuel Rogers, the poe-t, told of an
Englishman and a F.enchman who
had to tight a duel. That they might
have a better chance of missing on«
another, they were to fight in a dark
froom., The Englishman fired up the
chlmnfey and brought d<*wn the Frenchman! "When I tell thin story In Paris,"
added Rogers, "1 put the Englishman
Up the ©hlhnhfey."
James, G. Blaine used to tell this
fctory: dnce in Dublin, toward the end
of the opera, Satan was conducting
Faust through a trap-door which represented the gates of Hades. His Majesty got through all right—he was
used to going below—but Faust, wno
was quite stout, got only about halfway In, and no squeezing would get
him any farther. HutUitMuy an i. unman In the gallery exclaimed, devoutly, "Thank God, hell is lull."
When Moses Colt Tyler, the celebrated professsor of hi («■ y at Cornell:

a.m. One raw February morning At
roll-call, he read the name of "Mr.
Robbing," a member of the class, without getting an answer. •'Mr. Kobbins,"
he repeated in a Bllgiitly louder voice.
Still no reply, "Ah." said the Instructor, with a quiet smile, "come to
think of It, It Is rather early for robins."
Once during a heated debate between
Senator Joseph B. Foraker, of Ohio,
and Senator Joseph W. Bailey, of
Texas, the question of law In Texa9
and law in Ohio came up. The passage became warm. Foraker, by way
of a parting shot, told Bailey that if
he would come to Ohio he would learn
a great deal of law that he did not
know. "If there Is so very much law
to be learned In Ohio," remarked
Bailey, "I must advise the Senator to
spend all his spare time there. He

A somewhat apocryphal anecdote of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Is going the rounds"
of the Untied States press. During the
last general elections, It Is related, a
Quebec Liberal, whose acquaintance
wilth Sir Wilfrid was only political,
sent this telegram to hla leader, who
was In Ontario on a speech-making
tour: "Report in circulation In thta
county that your children have not
been baptized. Telegraph deiBfcl* To
which despatch the Premier sent thi*
reply: "Sorry to eay report la correct.
I have no children."
Dr. MaoNamara, In hie collection of
child stories, tells one conce: nlng that
wonderful dream of Jacob's and the
angels going up the ladder to Heaven.
"Please, sir," asked one of the boys In
the class to which the story waa being
rehearsed, "why did the ant 'le want
to go up the ladder when they had
wings?" This nonplussed ti.t teacher,
who took a strategic moven fit tot the
rear by saying, "Ah, yes! y?   Per
haps one of the boys can answer that."
And one did. "Please, sir," said he.
"because they wae a-moltlng."
Thomas A. Edison la deaf, but, like
many whose hearing Is defective, he
sometimes understands what is said
when it Is least expected. There were
visitors one day at his laboratory, to
whom, as usual, he waa polite, although busy, and he patiently answered many questions unnecessarily
shouted at him. Finally, one of the
visitors, the humorist of the party,
said to another: "I bet he'd hear If
we ask him to have a drink." "Yes,"
•aid Edison, looking directly at the
man and smiling, "I would; but no,
thank you, not to-day."
The late Lord Dufferin was fond of
relating an amusing evp ■'    <*■ w-tfh.
occurred  when  he  was  returning  to
Ireland from a dlp-jit-dtk  i*.,.. .....  tu
■be married, and his eng^ctn-' >t ro i tie
beautiful Miss Hamilton had Just been
announced. He land, d one evening on
the platform of a snr.ll country station near Clandeboye, and hired a
driver to take him the fo. or five
mlie.H, but he was so muffled up thnt
the driver failed to recognize him.
Presently Lord Duffeiln ask. ..: "Any
neWS about here?" "No news,"
grtimpily replied the man, "except that
the beautiful Miss Hamilton 1b going
to marry that ugly fellow, Duffuiinl"
Not What He *>eant at AIL
Politeness, It Is true, must hfl"e Its
origin In a kind heart and a desire to
please; but tact and thoughtfulneaf*
and quick Wit are also essential to good
manners.
A very stout hostess who was entertaining a large company one evening
turned to a group of young men standing near her chair and smilingly asked.
"May I trouble one of you young
gentlemen for a glass of water from
the pitcher on the table?"
Several of the young men hurried to
comply with the request. One, who
Was particularly active, succeeded In
■caching the table first
As ht handed the glast. of water to
the nostess she complimented him on
his qui*: kness.
"Oh, that's nothing," he said. "I am
used to It. I got Into many a clrcur

It -va* only when he law the expression on <he lady's ftce, and noticed the
dlence, that the young man realised

A GPmpse Into the Fucure.
HOMER 0. WELLS, In a brutally
frank article in the "Fortnightly Review," gives us a striking
glimpse into the future througt
what most people will consider a very
highly colored lens. His description ot
th* New Republic .>, of course, an arraignment of the present order of eo-
rfpty.
"The men of the New Republic," says
Mr.   Wells,   "will   not    be  squeamish
either in facing or inflicting death, because they will have a fuller sense of
the po.sqjbillties of life than we possess.   They will have an Ideal that will
make killing worth -the while; like Abraham, they will have the fialth to kill,
and   they will have no   superstitions
about death.   Tliey will naturally regard the modest suicide of Incurably
melancholy or diseased or helpless persons as a high and courageous act ot
duty rather than a crime.   And slnci
they  will  regard,  as  indeed  all  men
raised above a brutish hvel do regard,
a very long term of imprisonment as
infinitely worse than death, as toeing
Indeed death with a living misery added to its natural terror, they will, I
conceive, where the whole tenor of a
man's  actions,  and  not simply some
Incidental or impulsive action, aeems
to prove him unfitted for free life in
the world, consider him carefully and
condemn  him and  remove him  from
being.    All such killing will be done
with an opiate, for death is too grave a
thing to be made painful or dreadful
p.nd used as a deterrent from crime.   If
deterrent punlshmentB are used at all
In the code of the future, the deterrent
will neither be death, nor mutilation of
the body, nor mutilation of the life by
Imprisonment, not any horrible thlnga
like that, but good scientifically oaused
pain, that  will leave   nothing  but a
memory. Yet even the memory of overwhelming pain Is a sort of mutilation
of the soul.   The Idea that only those
who are fit to live finely in an orderly
world state should be permitted to live
is entirely against the use of deterrent
punishments at ull. Against outrageous
conduct to children or women, perhaps,
or for very cowardly or brutal assault*
of any .sort, the men of the future may
consider  pain  a salutary  remedy,   at
least   duii.tg   the   ages   of   transition
while the brute la still at large.   Bui
since most acts of this sort do, undei
conditions that neither torture nor exasperate, point to an essential vilenesi
In  the perpetrator, I am Inclined  to
chink that even in these cases the men
of the coming time will be far less disposed  to   torture   than   to  kill.    They
wlll have another aspect to consider.
The conscious infliction of pain for the
.-take of the pain Is against the bettet
nature of man, and it Is unsafe and de
moralizing for anyone to undertake thi
luty.   To kill under the seemly condl
Ions science  will afford Is a far les
-ft&nslve thing.   The rulers of the future will grudge making good peopli
into Jailers, warders, punishment deal
■n, nurses and attendants on the bad
..'eople who cannot  live happily  am1
jeely In the world without spoiling th*
lives of others are belter  out  of  li
hat Is a current sentiment to-day, bu
th* men of the New Republic will hav
lie courage of their opinions."

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but tbe two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
