Today will he a memorable one in  Grand Forks and Republic, it being  the occasion of the formal opening of  Republic and Grand Forks 'lailway or  Keltic Valley Lines. Several hun  died invited guest.':, including leading  business men'ol the boundary, Ross  land, Nelson, Spokane and Vancouver,  will be taken over the nevv railway to  Republic and return., It is expected  that a specirl train will run from Spo-  '     . o    ���   -'���  kane to Rossland and thence to Grand  hulks, to accommodate the guests from  those cities.  Mm, program for the interesting  ceremony ol driving the last spike calls  fur both T.' W, Holland, manager, and  W. C. Morris, assistant manager, to  take part. The spike itself will be ol  Hold and will be withdrawn after being  diiven, and preserved as a souvenir  of tire occasion. The mauls used will  be decorated with the Stars and Stripes  and the Union Jack.  History of the Pond.  The record of construction of tbe  Kettle Valley lines is regarded as noteworthy, considering that the first sod  was not turned until June 5 last, and  that the entire work was not under  contract until August 1st. This latest  international link, which will have a  great economic effect on the develop  nienl of the Boundary country and the  Colville Indian reservation, situated in  the Stale of Washington, is 4 2.55 miles  long. ;  Tire necessity of establishing railway  communication between Grand Forks  and Republic has long been obvious,  more especially since the failure of the  various methods for treating the Repuli  he ores at home by various adaptation;,  of the cyanide process. The Republic  and Maintain Lion mills have both  been closed for nearly a year, while a  third mill in its unfinished stages,  stands as a monument to the folly of  capitalists, wMo disregarded the opinion  of experts, that by smelting alone could  the ores of the camp yield the highest  returns at the minimum of cost.  There was the further dictum ol  metallurgists, since confirmed by actual experiment, that ideal results  could be attained by blending the  siliceous ores of Republic with the  sulphide ore.; of the Boundary. This  process, they averred, would prove  mutually beneficial, the Boundary ores  helping to fluxthe Republic ores and  the latter by their superior richness  contributing to enrich the matte.  Republic s Low Grade Camp.  Hitherto the long and expensive  wagon haul from Republic precluded  the possibility .of any but the highest  grade ores from being treated at Grand  Forks. 'Shipments, however, have  been made from lime to time, and only  of picked ores averaging in some instances $500 per ton. These values  cannot be regarded as. characteristic of  Republic, which, broadly speaking, is  a camp with millions of tons of low  grade ore. Probably an average would  be $12 per ton. The (Jranby smelter  at Grand Forks found this American  ore so desirable that the project of a  r.iilway between the two points met  with its hearty support; in fact the  management at one time contemplated  building the line, only abandoning the  idea when a charier had been secured  by other parties.  Route of the New Railway.  The northern lei minus is situated  in the Ruckle addition of Grand Forks,  just south of the city limits. After  crossing the C. P. R. track, the railway, following an air line, traverses'the  Kettle river valley south to the international boundary, less than four miles  distant. Here it crosses the river, and  passing through the village of Nelson,  Wash., ascends the \vest bank-of the  river over nine miles to a point one  and one half miles north of Curlew,  Wash., and then re-crosses the Kettle.  Leaving the river at Curlew on its  southeasterly  descent   from Canada,  the line continues "south through tire  wide and open Valley of 'Curlew creek  to the 1101 tli end of Curlew lake.-  Thence following the west shore of  that beautiful shcet-vof water, the road  takes the nine-mile ascent, in a southwesterly direction to .'the summit, whic  is overcome through a natural pass.  Two miles beyond, on the opposit  slope, the line taps the Tom Thuiii  mine before reaching the Mountain  Lion. Then the railway swings around  the mountain from that point along  Granite creek to the Morning Glory  and Quilp, before goinn north- tip  Eureka creek and passing the San Poil,  Bodie, Mack Tail, Lone Pine, Silver  Dollar, Knob Hill - and other , well  known properties.  Will Haul Ores Down Hill.  The altitude ol Republic is 1,000  feet higher'than Grand Forks. This  elevation is overcome by a compensated minimum grade of one and one  half per cent. Goiiig north from'Republic, the descending grade, after the  summit is passed,' amounts to only  eight tenths of one per cent. As the  bulk 'if traffic, will flow in that' d-rec-  tion, the cost of operating trains on a  descending grade should be moderate.  From an engineering standpoint the  route was admirably, chosen and well  located ; and credit is due tbe chief  engineer, John A. Manly.  The rapidity with which construction  work was rushed is.: due .to Charles  lerguson, a veteran Spokane contractor with an experience of over twenty  years in building railways. Mr. Ferguson (Ferguson & Co.) were awarded  the contract on August 1st last.  The Dominating Spirit.  The dominating spirit of this enter  prise is Tracy W. Holland, mayor ol  Grand Forks. Mr. Holland was the  first to perceive the commercial pos  sibilities ol'a railway between the American camp and the'Canadian smelting  center, and to its accomplishment he  has devoted his time and energies with  rare singleness of .-purpose for nearly  two years.  ���To'arrange the preli.ninaries was no  easy task. In August, 1900, he obtain  ed from the British Columbia legisla,  lure, after a hard legislative fight and  by a majority of one vote, a charier  authorizing the construction of a rail  way from Grand Forks to the inter  national boundary line. There was yet  to be secured the authority for building the American section of the road,  between the frontier and Republic  As the Colville Indian reservation  is administered by the United Stales  government, Mr. Holland found it  necessary to pay half a dozen visits to  Washington. On these missions he  was accompanied by W. C. Monis, an  energetic young attorney of Republic.  Mr. Morris now occupies the position  of general counsel and assistant manager  of the road. Although the obstacles at  Washington at first looked insuperable,  both resolutely stuck to the task. They  had to overcome various objections  and provide guarantees that the existing rights of the Indians would be safeguarded, and that ample compensation  for traversing Indian allotments would  be paid. The zeal of the Interior and  Indian departments for the security ol  its dusky wards could not have been  more scrupulous.  One by one objection after objection  was overcome, and finally the order  authorizing the building of the railway  was signed by R. A. Hitchcock, secretary of the Interior. livery Indian  claim of damages has been adjusted,  and, that, too, at the appraisement ol  officials of the United States government.  Built By Canadian Capital.  After the organization of the Repub  lie it Grand Forks railway, Mr. Holland became its general manager. The  capital required for building the road  was raised in the east, the president ol  tire enterprise being Hon. J. R. Strat-  ton, who holds the portlolio of provincial secretary in the Ontario cabinet.  Mr. Holland bas resided in this province five or six years, and is thirty-three  yeais old. He was bora in Hamilton,  Ont., and for a number of years was  engaged in the banking business at  Winnipeg. A few months ago be was  elected mayor of Grand Forks by acclamation.  Ore Contracts Made.  The Kettle Valley Lines have entered in 10 a contract with the mine owners  of Republic for the transportation ol  ore to the Granby smelter at Grand  Forks. According to contract, the  freight and  treatment   rate   must   not  (Comiuucd 011 pngc 4.}  Published Report of the Granby  Profits  MACHIN SAVS IT "IS RUMORED"  E. Jacobs Corrects a Statement Attributed lo  Him by tbe British Columbia Mining  Record.  Editor Pioneer :  Sir���Iu an editorial published in  the April number of the B. C. Mining  Record, which Iras just come to hand,  it is made to appear that I quoted the  New York Engineering and Mining  Journal as having stated in regard to  copper values of Boundary ores. "The  copper ores throughout the district yield  on an average about one third per cent,  cf copper." What I did say was "1.3  per cent, of copper," and this was transformed by the printer into "one-third,"  thereby making it appear tbat the copper value was given at only about one-  fourth of what I really did quote. As  the Mining Record is a monthly publication I ask the favor of at once making this correction through the medium  of your columns, so that the Boundaiy  may not remain longer than is absolutely necessary without having this-  simple justice done to it.  \Vhilst upon the subject of Boun  dary mining I should like to be uer  mitted to'express  grave  doubts astn  certain: statements .alleged   to   havt  been made by Mr. Rowland   Machin,  published recently in the Victoria Time;,  and  reprinted by other papers.     -Mr.  -Machin is reported  to have  said, in  part, that the Granby Co. is"privately  rumored" to be making "over  $3000  per.day," and that "the present cost 01  mining, the  ore   cannot   exceed   the  present price" (which by the way goes  without  saying)  "which   is   forty-five  cents per ton, the total cost of mining  under similar conditions at the Mother  Lode   mine,   where  they  are  today  quarrying it ou.. of the 'glory hole' at a  cost of 10 cents per ton for powder,  iuse and caps."     This is all very flat  lering to the Boundary,  but it is not  all the tiuth.    Mr. Machin may mean  to convey that ore  quarrying  only is  being done at 45 cents per ton, but ii  Ire means that the total cost of mining,  including the sloping and   hoisting of  ore   from   the    underground    levels,  which both of the   mines   mentioned  are doing right along,   then his  statement is at variance with facts in this  particular.     Regarding the profit the  G ran by Co. is "privately rumored" to  be making���taking the tonnage smelted with   four furnaces   running   right  along as 1,500 tons,   which  aggregate  is not likely to be  exceeded  as  the  average day's run, this would mean a  net profit of $2 per ton of ore.    Again  it would mean a net profit of  $1,095,-  000   on the year's  operations,  under  existing conditions,  earned   by  onl>  four  furnaces,  and  since  there  is a  reasonable probability that before the  close of the current year there will be  at least ten furnaces   running   in   the  district it would by then mean a total  net profit dt the rate ol" not less   than  $2,500,000 per annum from the Boun  dary alone.      Let  us  earnestly   hope  this will be realized.    Meanwhile, bow-  ever,   Mr.  Machin will do well to re  strict his entertaining  tendency to his  well   known   hospitality,  and   not   at-  1. mpt to entertain  with fairy  tales  as  well. Yours truly,  E. Jacobs.  Greenwood, B. C, April 8, 1902.  Wll Build At On'.  The Hot Air people adjusted their  differences with the V. V. & E; this  week, and the latter can now finish  laying steel to Republic. It is also  said that construction on the Phoenix  and Greenwood branch will commence  inside of three weeks.  HAVE CERTAINLY STRUCK IT RICH.  Good Luck for Whitwell tnd Fowler 00 lie  Providence  Fied Whitwell, who has been working claims on Providence creek.:for  the last two or three years, was in town  Thursday, but was reticent in regard  to the rich strike ncently made by  himself and partner, on the Providence  claim.  Some months ago Whitwell and  Fowler leased the Providence and also  bonded the property, and started development. They pegged away for  a long time, and were recently rewarded to their hearts' content. Shortly  after finding the rich ore body which  is now. the talk of the Boundary, they  made a trial shipment of 15 tons of  ore to the Greenwood smelter,,) from  which'they are reported to have got  returns of between $400 arid $500 per  ton. The'ore is base, carrying gold,  silver and copper, and they think they  have enough of it to make both of  them independent. The vein is sev-  eial inches wide, and they seem to  have no fear of its pinching out. .  Two men were recently added to  the working for force, and next week  another car of oie will be sent to the  Greenwood smelter. -Mr. Whitwell  was accompanied to Phoenix by Mrs.  Whitwell, who makes her home at the  camp.

The Greenwood Board of Trade  has 25 members and is out of debt.  Geo. R. Naden was recently re-elected  president and W. G. Gaunce secretary.  W. H. Oocksteader is hauling ore  for R. Meyerhoff from the Jewel to the  railway. John Gray has sold his team  to Mr. Meyerhoff, to be used in. the  same work.  Albert Fraser and wife left Monday  for the North Star mine, East Kootenay, for a time, where Mr. Fraser  will have charge of some diamond drill  operations.  Mrs. F. G. Bailey, whose husband  has neen developing the Excelsior claim  in Providence camp for a couple of  years, came in on Saturday's train from  a vi:it to Spokane.  Mrs. M. W. Crane, wife of the local  V. & N. telephone manager, returned  Saturday from Spokane, where she had  '.he sad duty of burying her father the  previous Tuesday.  James McArdle, of Grand Forks,  was in town 'Tuesday, inspecting the  new stable which he recently erected  on Knob Hill avenue lor the use of  Collins &McQuaid.  His Worship, Mayor George AV.  Rumburger, who has been rusticating  amid the orange groves of sunny California for the last two months, came  in on last Monday night's train,looking  in the best of health. Mr. Rumberger  left Phoenix on the 28th of January,  for the purpose of--enjoying the first  real vecation he has had in years. In  brdeFnot to be disturbed in his rambles  along the seashore of the greatest state  in the western part of the American  Union, he was careful not to leave his  address before starting.  The mayor proceeded first -to-'-Spokane, where he spent a few days taking  in the sights of the, capital of the  Inland Empire. Then he went to  Salt Lake City, and after a season of  hobnobbing with the Mormons, went  across the mountains to California.  He had thought of visiting the new  mining camp of Tonapah, Nevada, on  his way, but the reports of the camp  were so conflicting that he did not  waste time in going in there.  In California he visited San Francisco, Los Angeles,1, and other large  cities, as well as the. more or. less  famous winier resorts that are such an  attraction to tourists from all over the  world. As winter is the harvest time  in California, so far as business ; conditions are concerned,.Mr. Ruiiib'erger  thought that times were fairly good.  In San Francisco he met Victor Mon-  nier, formerly of Phoenix, who is  expecting to make his home there.  Mr. Rumberger had nothing to say  about the time when the Brooklyn  would resume operations, as he had  seen none of those interested while  away. Although one of the large  shareholders in the property,- he has  little to say about it, except that he  believes that it will be working again  before long.  City Council's Doings,  Mayor Rumberger presided at Wednesday's meeting of the city council,  but not much business was transacted.  Several communications were read by  the city clerk, two applications were  filed for the position of city clerk,  which will become vacant on the 30th  inst., and the following bills wereorder-  ed paid:  McRae Bros. & Smith,. $13.40  V. &N.Tel.

Boundary Creek Licence Board.  The Licence Commissioners for the  Boundary Creek Licence Distn'ct,  which embraces all territory outside of  municipalities from the Columbia river  westward to Rock Creek, have received Irom the provincial secretary's office,  Victoria, notice of their re appointment  for the current year. Last year's  license board was composed of E.  Jacobs, Greenwood, chairman; H. B.  Cannon, Grand Forks, and W. B.  Townsend, Rossland. Provincial Constable I. A.

PROVINCIAL NOTES  Kkl)  AFTER A RICH PLUM.  Last year the (Jranby Co. paid for  freight alone the comfortable sum of  $380,000. This is well known. Not-  . withstanding that matte shipments to  the east have been discontinued, and  - only,blister copper, 99 per cent fine, is  now shipped to the refineries, it is estimated that in the calendar year 1902  the Granby Co. will probably pay to  the C. P.R. about $600,000 for freight  charges.  The above figures illustrate in some  . degree the importance to the Boundary and to British Columbia of the  operations being conducted by the  Granby Co. at its mines in Phoenix,  and at its large reduction works in  - Grand Forks! But here is another  way of looking at it that is still more  interesting and significant.  Take the sum total of freight and  - passenger rates of the C. P. R. for 1901,  , including all the branch lines in Canada and the United States, as well as  all of its various steamer lines, including the moving of 50,000,000 bushels  of wheat in Manuoba.     This   will  ' amount to about $33,000,000, or 87  -times the amount paid by one mining  > company���the Granby���in the Boundary in the same year.  That is to say, if there had been 86  more concerns paying into the coiiers  of the C. P. R. an amount equal to  that paid by the Granby Co. in 1901,  the total would equal that paid to the  C. P. R. ftpm all sources last year.  ir,  In the light of these figures,  which  ,flcan easily be verified by any one interested, it is not surprising that James  .  J. .Hill  is now  moving  heaven  and  earth, to say nothing of his efforts with  the British Columbia legislative assembly, to build his lines into the Boundary, and thus secure a share of this  rich plum.    Nor is it surprising that  , the C. P. R. is equally anxious to keep  him out.     The trade of the Boundary  is worth having.  The C. 1'. R. will spend man)  thousands of dollais this year on im  ptovemeuis to its Boundaiy 1 ail way.  Must be some more business iu sight.  Gentle reader, do you bold a ie:  ceipted bill for the cuirent yeai foi  your copy of the Pioneer ? If not,  this is intended as a lemindci. Do  not overlook the publisher in youi  remittances.  Boundary people aie not a little  pleased at the report that the govern  ment has at last decided to bonus a  Coast-Kootenay railway. Whethei  this sugar coating of another pill will  work is a question yet to be demonstrated.  It was a little odd. Last week when  the Granby Co. wished 50 extra men  at the mines here on short notice, the)  were not to be had. Increasing the  ore shipments from 1,000 to 1,500  tons daily was the cause. The tequired  number is now being secured, liowevei.  RED LETTER DAY FOR THE BOUNDARY.  Today is a red letter day for the  Boundary country. It marks" the date  of the, forma! opening of the Republic  and Grand Forks railway, the new  connecting link between the famous  Washington mining camp and the  smelting centre of British Columbia.  Both Grand Forks and Republic arc  of course en fete on this occasion, and  are bestowing every attention upon the  hundreds of strangers within their  gates. A special train for the visitors,  will[be.run today from Grand.Forks to  Republic and return, and nothing will  i be left' undone to impress upon the  visitors the importance of the event  This new piece of railway is designed as a means of bringing  Ameiican  , ores to Canadian smelters, and it will  apparently be successful, as several  hundred tons of ore daily will be  handled at the outset, to say nothing  of the large quantities of general freight  already being hauled.  The Kettle Valley Lines, as the new  railway is to be called, is important be-  , cause it is the second line of railway  built into the Boundary, the C. P. R.  ., being the, first, and having heretofore  had all the business to itself.     The  . Great Northern will also soon be herej  , making a third railway.  The promotors and builders of the  ' Kettle Valley Lines are to be congrat-  It is reported that Mr. Justice Wt\-  kem, who is tbe Royal Commission  appointed to investigate the charges  against the government in connection  tion with the Canada Northern chait-  er, will vindicate the government and  justifyMr. Curtis: " Which means that  where there is so much smoke, fire  cannot be far away.  Now that the Boundary is assuied  of two representatives at Victoria, a  number of men are willing to saciifice  themselves for the sake or their coun  try.

Worthless mining shares sometimes  become valuable, as is told in the following case by Current Investments:.'  C M. Woodbridge, of Woodbridge  Brothers, piano dealers, last  summer  came across an old note for $600 given  jby a man living in the Black Mills, for  a   piano    purchased   of   Woodbridge  , Brothers'so long ago that.the note was  .'���outlawed.    But being very anxious to  '���; secure some money at that particular  time Mr. Woodbridge  went to'Dead;  wood.    Mc met his debtor and ">ir  him disposed to liquidate his debt if it  were In his power to do  so, which   it  was not. Me did pay $150 on the note  however, and then said:  "Mr. Woodbridge, I have a lot of  mining stock here which is'now worthless, hut some,day, perhaps, you might  re rlize a few dollars on it. Anywav,  it is as good as my note, for I don't  know when I can ever pav another  cent on it. Suppose you take the  stock and call it square." ���     ',  The piano man had no'hopes of ever  receiving another'dollar,'on the note.  He look the mining stock. It was  not worth one cent on the dollar.  Wilhin"a few .weeks* after1 Mr. Wood-  bridge returned home, however, avien  of gold" was si 1 tick in the mine, in  which he held shares First he w.t,-  sntpiised to hear that he might In-  able to dispose of 1 hem at 5 cents (in  WOKK AT SUNSET SMELTER.  Ooo I Company   is  Now  Behind  Ihe  Enterprise. ,,  Every since the Sunset  people took  ove< ihe Boundary Falls .smelter  they  lia'v ���' been  working  vigorously to gel  the same leady for operation, says the  Gre.-nwood    limes.     Their  mine  is  rea y to give them 400 to 500 tons of  ore a day,  and   they  have  had   rush  ord'rs  for, the  smelting   plain.      A  larg' gang ol workmen have been employed now for. the past four weeksgei-  ting ihe plant   in   shape.      Laborers,  carp -liters,    machinists,'   eleciiicians  haw been working hard to get every  thin.; in readiness for early April smelting.    It is only a question of a   few  day���; now until the mammoth  furnace  will lie glowing and  the   molten  ore  pou ing out in continuous stream.

Now whether tbesi  two organizations are done up in the  same parcel or not there seemsto liave  been a little mixing lately. The Board  of Trade passsed a resolution praying  the Dominion government to retain  the ownership of coal lands in the  Crowds Nest region and to begin ai  once developing these lands and manu  facturing coke���a boon to the whole  country. Very well, Phoenix; we agree  with you, and would like to see the  principle of government ownership extend still lurihei���-far enough to take  in metaliferous as well as coal mines.  ���Frank Sentinel.  [The resolution referred to above  was passed by the Phoenix Socialist  Club and not by the Phoenix Beard of  Trade.���Ed. Pioneer. ]  Nothing definite has yet been announced in regard to the deal for the  Brooklyn group of mines in this camp,  which it was well known the 13. C.  Copper Co., owners, of Mother Lode  mine and smelter, were figuring on.  Engineer 'Thomas, afier several months  in New York, in the endeavor to put  the matter through, recently returned  to Greenwood,,but on this particular  subject he is said to lie as, mum' as", an  oyster.. Consequently, all that is heaid  is gossip, pure and simple.     '  Hi  Some of this gossip h \o the. effect  that the reason that the deal has noi  yet been consummated is thai the present owners want too high a figuie for  the mines. The propenies themselves  are said to be all right, and satisfactory to the engineer who examined  them, but it is a question of price. Ii  is asseitcd that the figure placed on  ihe properties referred 10 was $750,-  000, and that the Mother Lode 'people thought this too high. This is supposed to represent the amount of ore  now blocked out and  ready for stop-  As the largest shareholders in the  Dominion Copper Co., Ltd., owning  the Brookly group, are already wealthy  men, they can afford to wait, and apparently'they ore doing, just exactl)  '.his. In the meantime the Mother  Lode people are supplying their smelter  fiom their own mine.  DISSOLUTION OF PARTNERSHIP.  THE partnership heretofore existing between  J. A. McLean and J.

Keep Away From Tonopaii.  , A circular has been sent out by  John OToole of the Miners' union at  Tonopaii, Nevada, which reads as foi:  lows:  "The'rapid influx of workingmen at  this place at the present time indicates  a general misapprehension of labor  conditions here. In justice to the uninformed, we desire to warn all laboring'men to stay away until local conditions here improve."  This circular has been misconstrued  by many as meaning that Tonopaii, is  of no importance as a mining camp.  This is far from being true, and the  circular is sent out for the purpose of  warning miners that the labor supply  at Tonopaii is at present more than  sufficient for the demand. We look  lor a great future for Tonopah if the  mining operations are directed conservatively as at present appears to be  the case.-"-Deliver   Mining  Reporter.  "I felt perfectly sure," said a well-  posted man to the Pioneer man this  week, "when the redistribution bill  was brought down in the legislature  recently, that the government bad  some object in being so liberal to this  part of the province in the way of representation. Last year the government was fighting this section, and  would enact no railway legislation that  was wanted here. Now the report  comes from Victoria that they are getting ready to award a contract for the  building of the V. V. ���& E. from the  coast to Eovfndary, the thing that the  majority of our our residents have most  desired for some years. It certainly  appears that the redistribution bill was  framed with the knowledge that the  Coast-Kootenay bill would be brought  in and endorsed."  Mf  .  To-a man up a tree, it looks as  though there was no small force In the  above argument, especially when the  Coast-K.ootenay charter is to be coupled  with the Canada Northern charier to  carry the latter through. The government knows full well that the rank and  file of the electorate is not favorable to  the Canada Northern scheme, and it  doubtless hopes, with the generous redistribution bill and the offer to liberally bonus the Coast-Kootenay line, to I wESt...

G  Busy Times al Ibe Qranby.  These are busy times at the Granby  smeller and with the repairs and en  largements which are going on the  workmen are kept on the jump from  moriiig till night, says Ihe.Grand Forks  Miner Gazette.  Duririg the week a briquetting plant  was installed for the handling of the  fine dust which has heretofore been  run into the furnaces in a powdeicd  state as it comes from the flues. This  dust, which carries a considerable pei  cent of mineral, caused the smelting of  the ore to be greatly delayed, and  blows oui of the furnace under intense  draft, but the plant just installed will  do away with this difficulty.  The dust will now be taken from the  flue to the hiiquettiug plant which will  compress it into bricks, or briqu ts,  cylindrical in shape and about four  inches in length. These when put in  to the furnace will smelt the same as  the ore.  The Molly Gibson, back from Koot  enay lake, has shipped 1,020 ton of  ore since January 1, and will continue  to ship indefinitely, the roads permitting, as there are large reserves of ore  in the stopes. The ore averages 15  per cent, lead and 75 ounces in silver  to the ton, and yielding considerable  profit to the shareholders.  carry all three, and perhaps ride into  into power again when the next appeal  to the people is had.  m  A considerable number of the Phoenicians who went to Grand Forks last  week, with the Phoenix Minstrels, took  occasion to visit the smelter,  and   see  the lour furnaces hard at work reduc  ing 1,500 or 1,600  tons of  Phoenix  ore every day.    They also saw the con  verters   in  ojier; t'on,   by   wh:c'i   the  molten matte is turned into blister cop  per, making about 30 tons of the latter, or one car load, each day.     The  process interested those who had  not  seen it before.    This is today the only  copper converting plant in  opeiatimi  in the Dominion of Canada.
