Managing Director McMillan Returned (Pat.Mitoheii.one of the pioneer of
From England Last Week.
He Is Well Pleased With the Property—Has Nothing to
Say Regarding the Much Talked of Amalgamation With the B. C. Copper Co.
Anthony J. McMillan, managing
direotor »f tho Snowshoe Gold ami
Copper Mines, arrived in Phoenix
from London, England, last Wednesday, after an absence of five months.
On the trip from the old country Mr.
McMillan traveled with George S.
Waterlow, vice-president of the Snow-
shoe company, who takes tl deep personal interest in the progress and success of tho Snowshoe, making an annual visit of inspection to the mine,
where he is a most welcome visitor.
However, Mr. Waterlow has been indisposed ever since leaving Toronto,
bting now in Vancouver, and is expected in Phoenix tins week. To a
representative of the Phoenix Pianeer
ilr. McMillan suited there was little
of real news to be said about the mine
at this time. It is shipping from 400
t> o00 tens of ore d>'ily—all that the
customs smelters will handle. The
mine could easily ship a much larger
tonnage. Over 50,000 tons of ore
have been shipped from the mine so
far this year, and the returns had
been satisfactory. In regard to the
talked of amalgamation with the B.
C. Copper company, in connection
with the smelter, there was really
nothing to be said at this time, and it
is evident that no definite steps have
been taken, notwithstanding the premature reports sent out some time
since from Greenwood. Mr. McMil-
1 n expressed h mself us well s tislied
with the present condition and development of tho .Snowshoe, which has
been going on steadily for some live
years under Superintendent Astley
and Foreman Trevorrow. Notwithstanding the increasing output, the
mine bos been kept in such an advanced state uf development that today more ore is available in the mine
than ever before. For the next three
weeks Mr. McMillan will be back and
forth between Rossland and Phoenix,
after which he and Mr. Waterlow will
probably return to England.

Albert I. Goodell, superintendent
of the Montreal & Boston Copper
(Jo.'s 'Sunset mine and smelter, has
returned to Greenwood from .Montreal, where he was in conference
with thc ollieials of thc eompany
regarding plans for the future. He
was accompanied by H. T. Ponibcr-
ton, of Montreal, who has been appointed business manager for the
oompany, and who will reside in
Greenwood in the future. Mr.
Goodoll's friends will be glad to
learn that he has consented to remain as superintendent of tho company' s works.
A peculiar coincidence in the birth

A Splendid Showing Was   Made for
Last Year
Old Board of Directors Re-Elected and Much Enthusiasm
Shown—The Company Is Entirely
Out of Debt.
The annual meeting of thcGranbv
Consolidated Mining, .Smelting &
Power Co. was held in the company's
head office at Montreal on Friday
last, In the report to the shareholders it was stated that the difficulties and troubles over the coal
aud coke supply were passed, and
that although for thc past year an
average of but two furnaces could be
kept in blast, although four were
ready, it was expected tluufrom now
(ai all six, including two new ones,
would be kept running continuously.
The mines were developed to a point
where no further expenditure would
be necessary, for a large tonnage output running lis high as 5,000 tons
per day could be made. From the
1'uianciul statement submitted it was
learned that the company is entirely
out of debt, that the production for
the, year ending June 30th, 1903,
amounted to 12,551,000 pounds of
line copper, 277,000 ounces of silver
and 35,121 ounces of gold, for which
$2,233,741 was received. Rent and
realty sales brought in 138,511, making a total of $2,271,252 net proceeds above all expenses, as freight
to New York finery and all other
charges are deducted from gross receipts.    The costs are given  as  fol-
of ever  increasing 'quantities of ore,
but in economical treatment,
It is a matter worthy of more than
passing mention when the statement
is made that an arrangement has been
entered into between the British Columbia Copper Company's smelter at
Greenwood and the Le Roi No. '1
Company's mines at Rossland to smelt
the entire output of shipping ore from
that property, which goes to show
that the Boundary not only leads in
ore prduction but in the precesses
of extracting values from the ores.
It is encouraging at least to read
the reports regarding the movements
and declarations of a man so prominent in the mining world as ,1. L.
Sonimer. of New York, vice-president
of the B. C. Copper Co., who was iu
the Boundary last week. He is reported to have said that it had recently been decided to enlarge the Greenwood plant by the addition of a converter and four more furnaces. Mr.
Sommer regards the mining industry
iu this province as in the lirst preliminary stages of development.
British  Columbia carried   oil'  tin
lows: Working expenses at mme Hk o£ to first prises atthe Spokane

During the year $207,000 were expended at tho mines and smelter in j
new   construction.     The  following

With the rapid development of the
immense mineral resources of the
Kootenavs and Boundary, come new
devices and processes which are more
less successfully aimining at the
reduction-of cost and the extraction
if a greater degree of values.    Only
last week our citizens were encouraged
with the reports coining from Trail
regarding the successful treatment of
silver-lead ores by a new process of
refinement. Next we read about the
Elmore oil process of ore concentration. Mr. Stanley Elmore, the in
venlor and patentee of this new plan,
is here from London, and experimental
iperatlons are now going on at the
Le Roi No. - mine in Rossland. So
it is seen that progress is being made

If the press reporters are not misrepresenting McBride he has day
dreams and night visions that are
liable to lead him into oceans of
trouble if he attempts to act upon inspiration received from his fairy dream
land. Apparently he fails to realize
the full import of the party-line system. The attempt to bribe either Socialists or Liberals into the Conservative camp by dangling ministerial
portifolios,in thier eyes he is already
realizing a failure, and as for retiring
from commanding positions on the
Hour to the speaker's chair there isn't
a shallow of hope. Mr. McBride is
so thoroughly a   "practical" politician
1 ntdrely   forgets   that  under the
new system, assemblymen-elect are
bound by party ties and pledges to
their constituents, aud that the old-
time individual liberty does not now
exist. His support can only be found
iu his own party ranks, unless by
chance a Judas Iscariot may be found
among the Liberals.
Mr. McBride is already within the
tropic and charming circle of llous-
toiidom. Mr. McBride's effulgence
in the political canopy is quite perceptibly eclipsed by that fiery-tailed
Houston comet speeding across the
Conservative horizon, and should il
happen to conic in contact with the
self-made premier's ministerial card
house, there'll be a sudden call for a
new lirst man. Our advice to Mr.
McBride is. never mind the silver-
tongued Goodove, thc hoary-locked
Caiter-Cotton, nor even the millionaire Chinese-lover Dunsmuir but
give Ihe Nelson "party leader'' the
right of way to the provincial secie-
taryship, John is for Houston, unii
him alone,   side step. Dick !
Rossland is petitioning the Ottawa
authorities for a resident supreme
court judge. All will agree emphatically that the interior is eminently entitled to relief in this direction. That
a litigant iu Fasten British Columbia
should have to be mulcted of large
sums in traveling expences in order
to get a hearing before a supreme
judge works an unwarrantable injustice,    of  ionise the   transportation
companies nild   the   eoast    eity   hotels
will discover no benefit for them in
tin' move, bill that should not prevent
justice being done Ihe interior.
The total vote in the province at
the recent election is figured out to be
46,416, of which the Conservatives
east 25,462, and the Liberals 20,954,
The above figures were used hv the
Vernon News to demonstrate the claim
that by popular vote the province i
c'earlv Conservative in its political
predilections. To make this showing,
its partisan blindness has caused it to
overlook 5,000 vutes east independent

advise our Conservative friends to
be satisfied with one piece as there
are only six in the whole pie.
The trouncing tho Liberals received in Vancouver at the recent
election has brought them together
in brotherly love and a determination
that portends a different result the
next time they are called upon to
exercise their sovereign right at thc
ballot box. The annual meeting
held last Friday to elect officers for
the ensuing term, was the most enthusiastic Liberal gathering ever
held in that city.

decided on by the company some time
ago, will be commenced at once.

The Woman's Aid Society In New

the poor. Like all charitable organizations. It has to contend with Ingratitude, stupidity, and wilful Improvidence, The "Commercial Advertiser"
relates one Instance that Is amusing to
read of, but must have been a tiiile
discouraging to the society.
To a poor woman whose husband
was in jail they gave some clothing
and ten dollars in money, thinking that
she would know best what she wanted,
and so spend the money more wisely
than they,
A week nfter the gift had been made
a deputation of members called at the
squalid home to see the results of their
assistance. They found no Improvement In the condition of the family.
"Well, Mrs. Nolan," asked one of
them, "how are you getting along?"
"Pine," said Mrs. Nolan.
"Did the clothes fit, and did you find
a use for the money?"
"Sure, the clothes fitted fine, an' the
ohllder looked so nice I had all their
pictures took wid the money ye gave
me, an' I'm going to have me own

Most people, If they were asked to
