PHOENIX CAMP
Department of Mines Issues
a Blue Book on Its Geological Formation
Following is the report of 0. B. Le
Boy, of the geological survey, on
Phoenix camp,just issued by the department of mines:
The season of 1908, from May until the end of September, was occupied in making a detailed geological
survey of Phoenix camp. The area
examined was two square miles in
extent and embraced the whole of
the mineral zone on which the mines
are situated. A special report and
map will be issued as soon as possible.
The courtesy of the three operating companies permitted free access
to all underground workings and allowed an examination to be made of
the logB of all the diamond drill
holes, the total length of which
amounts to about seven miles. This
cdata thus acquired and correlated
with the surface geology give, within
certain limits, very accurate inform
ation regarding the geological structure of the camp.
GEOLOGY.
With reference to the general
geology, no addirior.al information
was derived regarding the age of the
older rock formations, and they can
only be referred to the Palaeozoic, as
outlined on the general map of the
Boundary district. The grano-
diorite of Jurassic ' or post-Jurassic
age, is represented by a few poorly
defined dykes cutting the palaeozoic,
while the tertiary is made up of
both sedimentary and igneous
rocks.
The palaeozoic admits of a threefold division. The lower consists
principally of massive gray quartz-
ites und bassic porphyrias, altered
in places to quartz and hornblende
schists respectively. The porphy-
rites are intrusive in the quartzites
in the form of dykes and sills, and
are not found cutting any of the
y mnger rock. Crushed argillites
und altered limestones occur as small
isolated masses with the schistose
varieties of the above rocks.
The middle division is composed
of quartz breccias, and conglomerates
derived from the lower series, siliceous, chloritic and feldspatic tuffs and
crystalline limestones. In places the
conglomerates show an assortment
of material into liner and coarser
beds of rounded pebbles, it is generally massive, however, and. passes
insensibly into the breccia with no
hard and fast line separating them.
The tuffs are both banded and massive, and stratigraphically cannot be
separated from the breccia, with
which tbey are always associated.
The limestones occur in irregular
and lenticular areas, and are erosion
remnants of a once extensive formation which suffered from folding
along with the breccia and tuffs.
These two divisions form a basin
or trough, with the lower outcropping at intervals along the border.
The mineral zone occupies the upper
part of the middle division.
The upper division is unconformable to quartzite breccia, and consists of black carbonaceous argillites,
which have but a iimited exposure
on the east border of the map sheet.
The sedimentary portion of the
tertiary consists of conglomerates,
grits and tuffs of a prevailing white
or light gray color when weathered.
They are unconformable to the
palaeozoic and for a long irregular
band extending from the War Eagle
to the Gilt Edge claim, crossing the
east sul«i,;<rfr. the town of Phoenix.
The present altitude of the beds
varies from almost horizontal in the
south to steeply inclined and vertical in the north portion of the exposure. The character of the stratification sho »B that the deposition
occurred in quiet waters, and the
beds evidently represent a small
portion of the floor of a tertiary
lake.
This period of sedimentation and
erosion was followed by one of widespread volcanic activity, during
which a great part of the Boundary
district was covered by great lava
flows, which filled up the valleys
and covered some of the highest
ridges.
Subsequent erosion, with the complete removal of large areas of lava,
shows that the topography prior to
the eruption of this extrusive was
very similar to that of the present.
One isolated romnant occurs in
this area, and parallels the stratified
rocks along their eastern border.
The lava in general is andesitic in
character, but more acid and basic
varieties also occur with viscular and
amygdaloidal types.
Later intrusions of basic alkali
rocks and pulaskites, as dykes and
stocks have cut all the older eocks;
and with these, the period of igneous activity in this area closes. Both
intrusives are genetically connected,
and are probably closely related to
the lava flow.
ECONOMIC GEOLOGY.
As previously stated the mineral
zone belongs to the intermediate division of tbe palaeozoic. The principal portion of this zone outcrops in
the form of a large L, and extends
from the Gilt Edge to the Montezuma claims, south to the Gray
Eagle and War Eagle, then eastward through tbe Monarch and
Bawhide and northwards through
the Curlew and Gold Drop into the
Snowshoe. A subordinate zone lies
to the west on the Idaho and Brooklyn claims. It was originally connected to the main zone, and its
present isolation is due to subsequent
erosion.
The exposed area is about 120
acres in extent, but the actual area
is much greater, as a considerable
portion is overlain by the sedimentary and extrusive rocks of the tertiary age.
The field evidence goes  to   show
that the  mineral  zone represents a
metasomatic   replacement   of   part 1
of the limestones and tuffs of   epi-|
dote, garnet,   chlorite,   hornblende, j
calcite   and   quartz, together   with
chalcopyrite, hematite,   pyrite   and
magnetite.    Throughout this zone,
the   principal   lines of fracture, as
shown in the underground workings
of the several mines, have   approxi-1
mately a   north  and   south trend.
Between these the gronnd   is inter-
seoted by a hoBt of minor  fractures.
The   former   represent   the   trunk
channels and the latter the distributaries, the whole  forming   a   complete syBtem of underground circulation for mineral solutions, by the
action  of   which the country rocks

Bridesville Holdup Men Sentenced to Long Term in
Penitentiary
At the assize court at Greenwood
Wednesday afternoon Clive and Bill
Newman, brothers,were found guilty
of being implicated in the Bridesville holdup last December, and
were sentenced by Judge Morrison
to 20 years in the provincial penitentiary. Ben Hart, who turned
king's evidence, was allowed to go
free. Hart's evidence was corroborated by a woman who made masks
for the men, and also by the Great
Northern agent and the postoffice
clerk. The Newmans offered no defense, but asked for leniency. The
crime was committed on December
19th last, the men holding up the
Great Northern agent and the post-
office at Bridesville, securing 876
in all.
Marvellous System
The Russian wheat planting experiments, which were explained a
year ago in this journal, have continued to arouse great interest
among Russians, and some of their
illustrated papers contain pictures of
the result of the system, says the
London Over-Seas Mail. It is
claimed forthe experiments, which
have chiefly been carried out at Annapolis, that they prove both that
wheat can yield so enormously as to
support a man on a fraction of an
acre and that it can be made in some
degree perennial.
It is difficult to believe, as is
claimed, that a stngle seed can produce 70 pounds of grain and an acre
carry 45 tons, but the   new method
have been replaced by the above
gangues and ores. The concentration of the chalcopyriie along certain lines has formed ore bodies of
enormous size, lying at various altitudes in the mineral zone and
bounded by walls which in the main
are commeicial rather than structural.
In the commercial success of operation, the low-grade character of
the ore is offset by its fluxing quali-
t es, by the size and favorable situa
tion of the deposits, and by the
many economics that can bc practised in the handling of a large tonnage. The pillar and room method
of mining and the non-necessity for
general timbering are the most important features in the general
econom y.
The values are fairly uniform
throughout and approximate very
closely the general average. During
the past year the Granby Consolidated were working continuously on
both sides of the mineral zone. The
premier mine of the district is situated on the west side, with workings
extending through the Knob Hill
and Ironsides claims into the ./Etna
and Victoria. There are three outlets for the ore—No. 2 tunnel, No. 3
tunnel and the Victoria shaft. On
the east side the workings are on the
Gold Drop claim and the Curlew
fraction, which lies between the
Snowshoe and Rawhide claims. All
the ore pasBes through the Curlew
tunnel to the loading bins.
is certainly worth the attention of
the experimental stations, and may
be tried by any amateur in any
square yard of garden.
The method is as follows: Each
grain is planted in a conical pit, 11
to 17 inches deep and 42 inches
wide. After every three weeks the
sprouting grain is covered with a
layer of earth, and this may be repeated ten times. The result, according to the account quoted in a
Russian paper, is that each grain
planted in the inverted apex of the
conical pit gives a stalk with "blades.
Under the blades is a thickening of
the stalks, which is callked the
"bushing knots."
It the stalk with the knot is covered with earth to the depth of half
a finger it has the property of taking
root and giving no fewer than three
fresh shoots with bushing knots on
each stalk. These three shots, if
covered will produce three more,
and bo on, bo that after each covering with earth the number of the
stalks will be trebled:
After first covering, 3 stalks.
After second covering, 9 stalks.
After third covering, 27 stalks.
After eighth covering, 6,561 stalks.
After ninth covering,19,6S'J stalks.
After tenth covering, 59,040 Btalks.
The ten coverings will take thirty-
three weeks, of which three weeks
will be required for the for
the first growth after the planting,
and then each of the other ten coverings three weeks or less, according
to the climate. If the coving is limited to ten times, then as the winter
comes on a green carpet is produced
of 60,000 stalks.
In cases where the layor of rich
soil is very thin and a good crop is
desired, the following system may
be applied:
Plant the grain as you would for
seedlings, and replant the shopts into the soil of the pit in three weeks'
time, but into a less deep hole, and
then cover with earth as in the lirst
case. This replanting often gives a
very strong growth, producing after
the first bushing fifty or more stalks,
so that having covered it only eight
times the number of stalks may
amount to 105,450.
This mode of cultivation requires
no watering, as the air having free
access to the roots leaves the moisture and gas necessary for the growth
of the plant.

WAS A SUCCESS
Program of Firemen's Celebration Carried Out as
Advertised
The firemen's celebration Monday
proved a great success, the weather
being just right for an ideal day's
outing. The attendance was good,
special trains being run from Phoenix and Republic. The rural district was also well represented.
Automobile Race—E. Lane drove
his 20-h.p. Buick; Geo. Chappie entered with his Indian tri-car, 5-h.p.,
carrying Dr. Dickson as passenger.
The race proved interesting, the machines keeping close together, making an exciting finish, the little Indian tri-car leading about 10 feet
under the wire. Distance, one mile,
on very heavy track. Time, 2 min.,
11 seconds.
The baseball tournament opened
with a game between Grand Forks
and Danville, which was won by the
visitors by a score of 12 to 8. Then
Danville and Republic played an
exciting game, resulting in a score of
1 to 0 in favor of Danville.
In the football match between
Grand Forks and Phoenix the home
team proved victorious by a score of
2 to 1.
The horse races and athletic sports
were better and more keenly contested than in former years. A
friendly tennis tournament was
played between Grand Forks and
Cascade on the grounds near the
pubiie school.
Between fifty and sixty couples
attended the firemen's annual ball
in the opera house in the evtning.
The New Tunnel Machine
The Scientific American of the
22nd inst. contains illustrations and
a complete description of the Siga-
foos tunnel machine, of wnieh a full
account was printed in The Sun a
couple weeks ago. The American
concludes its article by saying that
"the immediate uses to which this
machine can be put to work are innumerable. Subways that formerly
took five years to xuislruct can now
be run for half the expense and in
one-tenth the time. Water in unlimited quanities can be brought
through the mountain walls, and the
vast arid areas of the desert will be
made to bloom ns a wonderful garden. II the claims made for it continue lo be substantiated In practice,
Mr. Sigafoofl may well lie considered
a world's benefactor in giving us
this wonderful rotary tunnel niu-
chinc."
The baseball game at Danville
last Sunday afternoon between
Grand Forks and Danville was won
by the latter team by a score of 5 to
2. Grand Forks would have made
a better showing if the players had
used more judgment in running
bases. A large representation of
Grand Forks people witnessed the
game.
Catholic Fair
The ladies of the Catholic church
will hold their annual Fair in the
sample hall, under the opera house,
on the 10th, 11th and 12th of June.
Music will bo provided by local
artists every evening. Many nice
and useful articles will be on hand
for sale. We will have various attractive sports, with a contest and a
drawing of valuabls articles. To all
a friendly invitation is extended.

If your appetite is fickle, and nothing tempts you, or you belch gas or if
you feel bloated after eating, or your
food lies like a lump of lead on your
stomach, you can muke up your mind
, thut at the bottom of all this there is
but one cause—fermentation of undigested food.
Prove to yourself, after your next

[PIIOM THE BOOK OF OOOD COUNSELS.]
Bar the door not to  the  stranger, he
he friend or be he foe,
For the tree will shade the   woodman
while his axe doth lay it low.
Greeting  fair,   und   room   Ice rest in;
fire, and water from the well—
.Simple gifts—are given   freely in   the
house where good men dwell,—
Young, or bent  with   many winters;
rich, or poor, whute'er thy guest,
Honor   him   for  thine own honor—
better is lie than the best.
Pity them that ask thy pity: who art
thou to stint thy hoard,
When the holy moon shines ecpial  on
the leper and the lord!
When thy gute is  roughly   fastened,
and the asker turns away,
Thence he bears thy good deeds   with
him, and his sins on thee doth lay,
In the house the husband ruleth, men
the Briiliiiiiins "master'' call;
Agni is the Twice-born  .Muster—but
the guest is lord of all.
In the land where no wise men are
men of little wit are lords;
And the castor-oil's a tree, where no
tree its shade affords.
Foe is friend, and friend is foe,
As our actions make them so.
That friend only is the true friend
who is near when trouble comes;
That man only is the brave innn who
can bear the buttle-clrums;
Words are wind; deed proveth promise: he who helps at need i.s kin;
And the leal wife is loving (hough the
husband lose or win.
Friend and kinsman—more their
meaning than the idle-hearted
mind,
Many a friend cun prove unfriendly,
many a kinsman less than   kind:
He who share" his comrade's portion,
be be beggar, be he lord,
Comes us truly, conies us duly, to the
battle us the board—
Stands before the king to succor, follows to the pile to sigh—
He is friend, and he is kinsman—less
would make the name a lie.
Stars glcum, lamps dicker, friends fore-
cell of fute;
The fuled sees, knows, heurs them—
all too lute.
Absent, flatterers' tongues nre daggers
—present, softer thnn the silk:
Shun them! 'tis a jar of poison hidden
under harmless milk:
Shun them whon thev   promise   little!
Shun them   when  they   promise
much!
For,   unkindled,   charcoal  burnetii—■
cold, it doth defile lhe touch.
Ill   years,   or   moons, or  half-moons
three.
Or in three days—Buddenly,
Knaves are silent—true men go free.
Anger comes to noble natures, but
leaves there no strife or storm;
Plunge ii lighted torch beneath it, und
the ocean grows not warm.
Noble heartfi nre golden vases—close
the bond true metals mnke;
Easily   the  smith   may   weld  them,
harder fnr it is to break.
Evil hearts nre earthen vessels—at a
touch thoy crack a-t»iiin.
And what craftsman's ready  cunning
can unite the shards agnin?
Good men's friendships may he broken,
yet abide they friends at heart;
Snap the stem-of I.uxmee's lotus, and
its fibres will not break.
Over-love   of   home  were   weakness;
whereso'er tho hero come,
Stalwart arm and steadfast spirit find
or win for him a home.

Nine-tenths of all the sickness of women is due to some derangement or disease of the organs distinctly feminine. Such sickness can be cured—is cured
every day by
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
It Makes Weak Women Strong,
Sick Women Well.
It acts directly on the organs affected end is at the same time a general restorative tonic for the whole system. It cures female complaint right in the privacy
of home. It makes unnecessary the disagreeable questioning, examinations and
local treatment so universally insisted upon by doctors, and so abhorrent to
every modest woman.
We shall not particularize here as to the symptoms of
those peculiar affections incident to women, hut those
wanting full information ns to their symptoms and
means of positive cure are referred to the People's Common Sense Medical Adviser—1008 pages, newly revised
and up-to-date Edition, sent free on receipt of 31 one-
