GROCERS AND HARDWARE MERCHANTS.'  J  l*a wjir* wv>*vy\��  Boundary Mining Notes  Water is being kept out of the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Emma mine, Summit  camp, by Foreman Lover and another  man.  Some of the material for the enlargement of the Granby smelter converter building, has arrived on the  ground.  The shaft of the Dimond-Texas is  down 115 feet, with a drift of 120 feet  from the 100-foot level. It is expected  that the Providence vein will be encountered in a week or less, the mine  adjoining that of the Providence Co.  The work of improving the grade  and curvature of the C. P. R. Mother  Lode spur for the B. C. Copper Co.,  will proceed apace with spring weather  upon us���which means that the spur  will not always be idle, as for a few  months past.  According to the Boston Commercial, in the month of March, the Granby Co. succeeded in getting every coat  of mining, smelting, etc., inside of  $2.50 per ton of ore���which would  seem to be a new low record for casts,  and one much needed with the present  low price of copper.  Yesterday was the best payday this  year in this camp or in the Boundary,'  the sum of about $55,000 being distributed for the month of March. At  the Grand Forks smelter approximately $35,000 more was paid out to the  employees, making a total of about  $90,000 for the month.  . Last week the resignation of T. R.  Drummond, manager of the Nipissing  mine at Cobalt, Ont., was accepted by  the board of directors, andR. B. Watson appointed to the position, Mr.  Drummond who was manager of the  Dominion Copper Co. here before  going to Cobalt, will take another  position in the west.  ���' W. C. Thomas, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., was here from  Boundary Falls Thursday, distributing  the monthly pay checks, to the ten  'men in the employ of the company, including superintendent, foremen, electrician, engineers, watchmen, etc.  "Nothing new about starting up," was  all he had to say on that subject-���at  :ieasti< for public consumption: -���,"-- ?  Ore shipments from the Granby are  being cut down to about 3,000 tons  daily, while the new steel flue dust  chamber is being connected with the  blast furnaces at the smelter. In order  not to reduce the force at the mines,  there will be no Sunday work for the  present. At the smelter those thrown  out by a furnace being blown out  temporarily, can be used in the new  construction work going on.  Milk U be Tested   Regalarty.  The regular meeting of the city  fathers was held on Wednesday evening, Mayor Matheson and Aldermen  Knott, McKenzie, Birnie and Biner  being present.  Communications were read from  D. Whiteside and the auditor-general.  On motion of Birnie and Knott the  medical health officer is authorized ^ to  procure such apparatus as is necessary  for testing milk, and is instructed to  make tests of milk regularly.  On motion of Aldermen Birnie and  Biner the city clerk was instructed to  write to Government Agent McMynn  informing him that cans and garbage  is being dumped along the road between Phoenix and Greenwood and  causing a nuisance.  The following accounts totalling  $317.40, were passed and ordered  to be paid:  James Bliss     $6 00  Prudy Bliss       6 00  Brooklyn hotel       4 20  D. L.

Jumping board bills is not a thing  that the average landlord looks upon  with equinamity, and this week two  men who tried it, wished they had not  made the attempt. James Loor and  Louie Colombo boarded with A.Schulli,  of the Maple Leaf hotel, till they owed  about $300. Last Monday they made  themselves scarce, taking the train for  Nelson, but not announcing the fact  from the housetops. Schulli soon  missed his guests, however, and sized  the situation up that they would next  day   start   for  Spokane.    When   the  ONTARIO'S RICH  GOLD FIELDS  Boundary Man's Experiences There.  Jas.  Atwood, ."Dean of Prospectors, Gives Details.  Great Northern train arrived at Marcus on Wednesday, Mr. Schulli sup-  prised Messrs. Loor and Colombo by  appearing there on the scene, and demanding an instant accounting and  liquidation of the debt. According to  Schulli, he gave them a well deserved  drubbing and succeeded in extracting  about $150 from them for his trouble,  leaving them sadder and wiser, and not  likely to return to Boundary's premier  mining camp.  The "daddy" of all the prospectors  in the Boundary isiwell known to be  James Atwood, .^Midway, who is  still living in that town, Mr. Atwood  came to the Boundary first in 1891,  and located some Jjof the mines that  are today .'the.'.;,bisi',r. known in the  Boundary. In 'July,* 1891, he located  the Stemwirider in phoenix camp. In  August he went oyer'to and discovered  Summit camp, .locating what is now  the Emma, Oro Denoro, and half a  dozen others. In ^ October the same  year he . located th^ No. 7 mine, in  Central camp, and a year or two later  located the Skylark, the Last Chance,  the Silver King and' other well-known  properties m Skylark, camp.  As far as can beV learned, Mr. Atwood never got very rich from his many!  mineral locations, but allowed most of  them to lapse or deeded them away to  friends and brother; prospectors. He  hwas indefatigable in his prospecting,  wherever it took-him, and although  about 60 years of age is still in the harness, as this story shows.  A couple of years ago he went to  the gold fields of Ontario, and found  something there believed to be rich  and valuable. With friends he formed  the Douglas Mining; Co., with a capital of $506,000,' the company being  named after James ^Douglas. This  property he expects to go to this spring  and prosecute development For the  information of those, interested, he  gave the Pioneer'an- account of his  getting into the Ontario fields, and  here it is m his own Jwords :  ;'i In the summer of 1906, I, with my  old friend and mining partner, John  Douglas, (a gentleman well known in  ���thisX district), *��� and^L;; :A.; Daggett, of  Toronto, went on a prospecting trip in  the Sturgeon Lake region of Northwestern Ontario, where we had been  told-rich-free- gold quartz had been  found in 1896, but where no real min  ing had been done. Except on the  St. Anthony and the Sturgeon Lake  Mining Company's claims���the latter  closing down after building a mill and  doing a small amount of development  work, on account of the death of the  principal owner.  We left the C.P.R. at a flag station  called Oroguan, and had our outfit  packed down to Camp Lake (three  quarters of a mile) and loaded on our  boat. We crossed Camp Lake (a  mile) and up a river (3 miles), and  Indian Lake, 14 miles long to the  Two_ Indian portages. Then we went  down three miles of river and came to  BearLaice(i5 miles long), ascending  this, brought us to English river portage.  This portage is on an island,���the  English river coming out of Bear Lake  is divided by this island, and both  channels have falls just at the point of  the island before they come together  and nasty rapids below) the Oroquan  Navigation Co. has since dammed the  English river below, and flooded them  out). We went down this river for  three miles, and then ascended a short  river which runs into it from Hut  Lake. A party of G. T. P. surveyors  on their way to Sturgeon Lake, in  1905, failed to find this short river into  Hut Lake, and got lost in the big lakes  on English river, being nearly starved  before they got out.  After leaving Hut Lake (5 miles  long), we went up another short river  three miles, and this brought us to  Grassy portage, 400 feet long. The  Port Arthur branch of the G. T. P.  crossed our trail here. 'This road is  expected to be finished by the end of  this year. Leaving Grassy we crossed  White Rock Lake, making a 300-foot  portage into Big Sea Lake.  Continuing our journey, we crossed  Young's Lake (5 miles) and made a  half-mile portage into Sturgeon Lake.  There we caught the St. Anthony's  tug, down for a load of supplies for the  mine. This took us 40 miles up the  lake to the St. Anthony mine, where  we arrived at 10 p.m., pretty well  tired out.  On the following morning we had a  look at the St. Anthony mill and mine,  and found that their pay ore was a  quartz schist, occurring in a schist  dyke, in contact with granite and  diabase, and very rich in free gold.  We also learned that the mineral  belt ran north and south, being from  two to four miles wide, and taking in  all the country lying between the  north bay and the north-east bay of  Sturgeon Lake. This belt is reported  by trappers to extend north of Sturgeon Lake for about 50 miles, but no  prospecting has been done on it out  side of three or four miles north of  Sturgeon Lake. The northern part of  tbe belt can be reached from Savant  Lake (66.miles long), as it runs along  the east.side'of this lake, which can be  reached from Sturgeon Lake by a  nine-mile (ortage. broken by two small  lakes. .The final location of the main  line of the Grand Trunk Pacific  crosses this portage two miles' north of  Sturgeon Lake. v .   : /  Situated on Long' Lake, west of  Savant Lake and about 15 miles  northwest of the north bay of_ Sturgeon Lake, the British Columbia prospectors from Greenwood in^ 1907  located extensive veins of; hematite  iron ore of good quality���the veins  being from one. to four hundred feet  wide and on which they made some  twenty locations.  This, I am told, is a valuable find,  as it is not far from the main line of  the G.T.P. railway. Mr. Bannernian,  of Midway, in 1907 ; also made some  very promisinggold locations at Belmont  and Northeast Bay, Sturgeon Lake.  Should a prospector wish to go east  into the Nipigon Lake country, he  could do so by following a river running into the Northeast Bay of Sturgeon Lake, known as the Nipigon  route���used by Hudson Bay trappers  ���across some small lakes, and then  down a river into Nipigon Lake. 'This  route is about 150 miles long, with 17  portages.; From Nipigon they could  continue on down into Lake Superior,  and this would take them through a  quite unprospected country.       .  Now, it willeasily be seen that there  are two things absolutely necessary to  a prospector's outfit in these regions������  namely, a Peterborough canoe, and  plenty of grub, as it is evident they  could not get very far without a boar,  and it would need to be a'light one on  account of the many portages. ��� It is  wise to carry a good rifle and fishing  tackle, moose and caribou being found  in certain localities, and the lakes.are  all well stocked with fish, such as trout,  pickeral,- pike, white fish, etc. It  would be well, too, for a man not to go  far fiom camp before he gets acquainted with the country, as he could  easily get lost.  At first the country strikes the prospector as too level, but on examination  he will find low hills and ridges in  every direction. They are all more or  less covered with small timber and  moss, except where it has been burnt  off lately���then theprospecting iseasy  .The prospecting season is about  four and a Half ^months, long, as one  could not dovmuch" ;berore" the middle"  of. May, and one must get out by the  first of October, or he might be frozen  in for some time. The winters in this  region are cold but dry. The Hudson's Bay Co. have posts, on most of  the larger lakes , and supplies can be  generally had from them if a m;  runs short.  On the east side of Sturgeon Lake  is the Belmore Bay belt, about two  miles wide. Here we made six locations, and commenced work on them,  stripping off the gravel and moss fiom  every vein we could find, sinking test  pits on all the places that panned well  ���spending in this way about $1200  with good results. In the same year  the Douglas Mining Co. was formed,  with head office at Toronto, Ont.  In 1907 a complete set of mine  houses were built, and a good motor  boat put on Sturgeon Lake by the  company and a thorough prospecting  of the property commenced which will  be continued this year.  New Coaches 00 tbe Way.  New coaches for the Phoenix branch  of the Great Northern, the necessity of  which the Pioneer has so frequently  called attention to, are now on the  way. As a result of some slight differences between the railway company  and the Canada customs the coaches  were detained at Grand Forks, which  also incidentally revealed the fact that  the old coaches had escaped duty.  However, it is understood the matter  will be satisfactorily settled, and fine  new plush-top seats will be running into Phoenix.  COPPER AGENT  OF SOME NOTE  Makes   Visit   to   the  Phoenix Mines;  Richard Merton Thinks  per Will Rise.  Cop-  This week Phoenix and the Boundary, had a visitor from Germany���  Richard Merton, of Frankfort-on-the-  Main. Mr. Merton, who has charge  of the I.ondon office, is commercial  agent of the Metalgesselschaft, the  parent company of the American Metal  Co., of New York. Mr. Merton's  father is president of the German concern, and Jacob Langeloth is president  ol the American Metal Co. and the  Granby Consolidated, he having originally also come from Germany. The  Metalgesselschaft is the largest general  metal selling agency in the world,  handling copper, lead, zinc, silver, etc.,  and having smelters and refineries of  its own in different countries. It does  not handle as much copper ; as . the  Amalgamated's United Metals Selling  Co., but the latter handles nothing but  copper, while Metalgesselschaft is a refiner and seller of the other inetals  mentioned. v  Mr. Merton is a pleasant gentleman,  who travels extensively looking after  the interests of his company, and also  sizes up the metal outlook from a personal visit to the largest producing  centres, whether interested directly or  not.:. Although a German, he has a  perfect command of English. He  arrived.in the Boundary direct from  California, stopping a day in Portland,  Seattle and Spokane, having taken in  the metallurgical works in the southwest. From here he went on Wednesday to Montana, thence to Nevada,  Colorado, etc.. Next year he takes in  Australia and its extensive metallurgical works.  While in Phoenix  Mr. Merton was  piloted   through   the   mines   of   the  Granby Consolidated  by :A,; B. W.  Hodges, the local" manager, and when  seen-by the   Pioneer  man, was   quite  enthusiastic  over  what   he has   been  shown in this camp.    In tact, he had  seen nothing quite.like it in his travels,  and marvelled that a profit of any sort  could be made, at the present price of  copper, from such low grade ore.    He  realized, however, he said, that it was  only by handling the ore on  a large  scale and by  reducing   the operating  costs to the closest possible notch, that  better than   costs  could   be realized.  For the smelter, also, he  could find  nothing but commendation, commenting   especially    on    the    economical  mechanical feeding apparatus, as   well  as  on  the  new  self-dumping   device  lately installed at the 400-foot level of  the company's mines,  Copper Will Slowly Advance.  When Mr. Merton was asked his  views as to the future of the price of  copper, he smiled, and said one could  figure as well as another. However, it  was his opinion, that the price of the  metal would gradually rise, up to perhaps 17 or 18 cents per pound, meantime occasionally dropping a little, but  on the whole gradually getting better  in price as general business conditions  improved all over the country and over  the world.  In his opinion, the present price of  copper was abnormally  low, just asr a  year ago 25 cents per pound was abnormally  high.    Neither.jprice.could; ���  be   maintained for l. any j considerable'! \  length of'time',' and  he fully believed'"  that the latter half of 1908  would be  appreciably better, in this regard, than--;-  the first half, which we are'"liqw going ���  through. '--V ���'.���:-'' ���'.��� .v-< '':-,..  From  his   position in such an important concern, and with his facilities  for feeling the pulse of the copper   '  trade, Mr.  Merton's  opinions  should  be of some worth, and it is pleasant to  note that  he   fully  believes that the  worst  is now  really over,  and .< that,<���;  better times are now in sight for the   ���'  copper producers.

T. Lowery and Duncan Ross, M. P. Mr. Ross has just  returned from Ottawa with his family,  looking hale and hearty, and was calling on the faithful here, as the nomination of delegates for the Vernon  Liberal convention of April 14th, was  to take place that night.  Mr. Ross seemed to think that he  would have no opposition at Vernon,  but would secure a renomination for  the commons on the first ballot. In  about ten days he will return to Ottawa,  to finish up the session, leaving his  wife and two children in Greenwood.  Col. Lowery came up the hill from  the Greenwood Ledge office to find a  place where something was going on.  He states that, although he has started  12 papers in the last fifteen years in  British Columbia, he is still likely to  begin the publication of another one  of these tine days. He likes the climate of Phoenix so well that he comes  here about once a week nowadays.  X  1900  1901  1901  1003  64.553 >3I.7��S 309.858 393,7"f  197       1,731     10,80O     71,313       _..

Coupled with the above, is the statement of J. W. Stewart, directing manager of Foley, Welch & Stewart, who  have the contract, that "any white  workingman on the coast is sure of  employment, as the entire supply here  will be taken before any are brought  from east of the Rockies." The total  expenditure on the contract is now  estimated to be $10,000,009, and when  work is in full swing the company will  distribute half a million per month.  This should stimulate the markets of  supply to a considerable extent and  the building of 160 miles over a route  so difficult for railway construction in  one or two years, as is the intention of  the contractors, will be no small  achievement in railway construction,  and another creditable record by the  members of this well known firm, who  j were also in charge of the building of  both the C.

The stolid German isn't so slow after all, says Mining Science. He  knows a good thing when he sees it.  He knows copper is cheaper than it is  going to be again m a long time, so  he is laying in a supply. Not for ten  months past have sales of copper been,  so heavy as during February. Between  Feb. 1st and 24th it is estimated that  55,000,000 pounds were sold by the  leading sales agents. Germany was  one of the heaviest buyers.  Qreal Native Copper District.  The; entire copper output of the  state of Michigan comes from the  the single district on the Kenweenaw  peninsula, which is well known as the  one great native; copper district of, the  world, though native copper in apparently similar; occurance is -fourid, in  central and southwestern Virginia and  in some other places. In the Lake  Superior district in 1906 the smelter  production of copper amounted to  229,695,730 pounds.  The small sum of two bits (25c) per  month takes the Phoenix Pioneer to  any postoffice on earth.  "���  ?���   '  ���  '"  ifiys  AJPRIL,  1908.  tH.4Jtl.  ���est Ttl *   .  Tui..��is.  Tin.  ft..

Willcox ��� is  severing his connection with the Phoe  nix Pionaer will be learned with regret  throughout the Kootenay distnct.

The ice on Moyie lake is still quite  firm.  Fernie is now blessed with three  weekly papers.  Cranbrook's estimated expenditures  for 1908 are $27,000.  So far 1000 acres are included in the  townsite of Prince Rupert.  Some 16 gamblers were recently run  out of Fernie by the police.  The B C. government office is being  moved from Fort Simpson to Prince  Rupert.  Columbia Gardens is the name of a  new post office between Waneta and  Fruitvale.  The Moyie Leader is ten years old,  and still staunchly boosts for that mining camp.  April 21-23 the piovincial teachers  will hold the annual convention at  Vancouver.  A steel bridge costing $43,000 is to  be built over Lynn creek, near North  Vancouver.  Five hundred fruit farmers are coming from England to locate in the interior of British Columbia.

The First; Canadian Cola.  The first shipment of silver coin was  made from the Canadian mint last  week, a total rf $24,000 being sent to  various parts of the country. The  money was shipped by the Dominion  Express Company to the receiver-general in Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver  and other cities, who will deal the  coins out as they are applied for.  Shipments of silver will be made regularly now accordingly as the supply  sent out is exhausted. There will be  no gold sent out for some time, as the  refiners have not yet arrived.  Shafts A Mile Deep.  The question of how deep mining  operations may be carried is much  discussed, but has never been determined, except locally. In some instances it has been determined by economic conditions; in others by physical  conditions, such as large floods of hot  water, or high temperature of the air.  From a mechanical standpo'nt equipment can be provided which will enable the sinking of shafts and the operation of mines to the depth approximating 10,000 feet. At present, about  5,0.00 feet is the limit. It is probable  that the only inducement required ' to  carry mining operations to a depth of  two miles is rock sufficiently rich to  pay the cost.  .  Slocan City is preparing   for a celebration this year.  Vou Will Never Refret  Helping others.  Living a clean life.  Paying your debts.  Making the best goods. ,  Keeping your promises.

MINING   O  Golden is booming itself as the ^ate  way l�� the Findlay river gold-fields.  At the Giant mine, near Golden, thf  Elmore oil proc-ss has been  installed.  The shaft or the Center Star  min.-,  near Rossland, is down  to the 2400  foot level.  In Rossland the new interest in the  lonii neglfctedisouth-belt claims continues unabated.  There are now 800 people in Hos-  nier. The shipping of coal will commence this summer and Hosrmr will  be a busy burg.  The Vancouver, in the Slocan,  owned and operated by the Le R<>r  No. 2, is turning out so well that it is  to be floated as a separate undertaking.  The Molly  Gibson   group   of gold  claims, near Rossland,   has been   sold  to a New York syndicate  for $56,00 .  the ore of which   assays $100 per  t�� �����  and can be quarried.  A five-stamp mill for treating free-  milling ore on the McLellan group of  claims on the' west coast of Moresby  Island of the Queen Charlotte group,  will be installed shortly.  Directors of the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co. have decided not to pay a  quarterly dividend in April, but the  amount of the dividend will be included in a half yearly dividend, to be  paid in July.  A year's lease on the Iron Horse,  Rossland has been given to M. A.  Henderson by the company owning  the. property. It is close to the big  producers of the camp and has a 300-  foot shaft and much drifting.  lqhn Arbuthnot, ex-mayor of Winnipeg, and associates, including some  New York capitali* ts, have formed a  $3,000,000 company to exploit the  coal measures on Malcolm island, near  Port McNeil, at the northern end of  Vancouver island. About 20,006  acres have been secured, as well as  some 300 or 400 acres near Nanaimo.  Magistrate Praises  Zsm-Buk  Magistrate Rasmussen, of 202 Marquette  St..    Montreal,    write?:    "For  many years I was troubled   with a serious eruption  of-;the  skin     This   was  not only  unsightly, but it was ai times  very   painful.    I    first   tried   various  household remedies but these   proved  altogether useless.     I  then took medical advicr.    Not one, but several doc  tors in turn were consulted,   but I was  unable to get any   permanent   relief.  Some time back   I noticed   a  report  from the Justice of the Peace   (Magistrate Perry, J. P.' for B..C.) been cured  ol a chronic skin disease by Zam-Buk,  and I determined to   give this balm   a  KS      trial.    After a "thoroughly fair' test,   I  can  say   I   am delighted  with  it.    I  have the best of reasons  for this   conclusion; because .while everything  else  I tried���salves,   emhrocations, washes,  soaps and doctor's preparations, failed  absolutely tojelieve my   pain and   rid  me of .my trouble, three boxes ot Zam-  Buk worked a complete cure.    In my  opinion this balm should be even more  widely   known than it   is, and I   hope  that    my   experience   will   lead  other  sufferers who are in despair  to try this  herbal healer, Zam-Buk."  For healing eczema, running sores,  cuts, bruises, burns, boils, eruptions,  itch, chapped hands, and diseases of  the skin Zam-Buk is without equal.  All druggists and stores sell it, 50c.  box or postpaid from Zam-Buk Co.,  Toronto.  If you owe your subscription to this  paper, please pay up.

He says it is the opinion of  those well posted tbat although much  of the grading on the V. V. & E.  extension from Keremeos to Hedley,  some ��� 20 miles, is done, there yet  remain some large cuts and fills and  two large bridges to attend-to, and it  will probably be well on towards the  time for snow to fly again before trains  are running to Hedley. A few days  ago contracts were let for clearing the  n'ght of way for the new railway line  from Hedley.to Princeton, a distance  of about 24 miles.  Mr. Rogers went from here to Kault,  on the main line, where he will spend  the summer caring for his landed  interests, and says he is preparing to  plant the largest arid best orchard in  the province.
