Beginning April ist, the Dominion  Copper Co. raised the wages of the  employees at the smelting works at  Boundary Falls to the level of that  agreed upon last December between  the British Columbia Copper Co. and  its employees at the time of the difference that occurred at those works. At  that time, when a new agreement was  made for two years, the new scale between the British Columbia Copper  Co. and its smeltermen was raised  somewhat above that then being paid  at the Dominion Copper Co.'s works,  and the management of the latter has  now voluntarily leveled up its smelter  wage scale with the former. In dollars  pnd cents it means that the men employed at Boundary Falls will now  receive about $1,000 more per month  than hitherto.  Announcement is also made that W.  C. Thomas, smelter superintendent of  the Dominion Copper Co., since the  company came under the present  management, has been promoted to  the position of general local manager  of the company, having charge of both  its smelting and mining operations.  T. R. Drummond, the local manager  up to last week, having been transferred to theNippissing mine at Cobalt,  by M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer  for both the Dominion Copper and  Nippissing companies.  Mr. Thomas has made many friends  since coming to the Boundary from  Salt Lake City, not quite two years  ago, and the appointment meets with  general satisfaction from residents of  the Boundary, as well as with those  having direct dealings with the company.  The last carload of delayed parts  and fixtures for the enlargement of the  Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter, arrived at Boundary Falls this week, and  the work of getting the new giant  furnace in operation is now rapidly  nearing completion, and early May  should see it in operation, when the  reduction works are expected to be  running through some 1,400 tons of  ore per day..  Close to 800 men are now employed  in the mines of Phoenix camp.  At the Fremont some high grade  ore has been opened up recently.  For several days now the B. C.  Copper smelter has been operating two  furnaces once more.  \mm+*+**\m**  n**duf*0>2>  ��3  >33333{33331  March Public School Report.

Development on the Bay and Tip  Top claims in Skylark earn p is looking  well, and much is expected from these  properties at no distant date..  Several days this week5 the Great  Northern took out 50 cars of Granby  ore per day. Each car holds from 50  to 55 tons of crushed chalcopyrite,  A meeting of the directors of the  Skylark Development Co., Ltd., was  held Thursday, when the treasurer reported having received the deed to the  property.  At the Cariboo, Camp McKinney,  the unwatering has proceeded to the  400-foot level, and! active mining  should soon be in progress at this old  dividend payer. '(������:  It is said that the simple apron device lately put into operation at the  B. C. Copper smelter for the feeding  ol air into the blast vastly increases  the produc,-on of the works.  Boyles Brothers, who are now doing  some boring in the lower levels of the  Brooklyn mine, will also put in a few  diamond drill holes at the Elkhorn,  adjoining the Providence mine.  A. W. Cleveland, erecting engineer  for the Canadian Rand Drill Co., came  in Wednesday from Nelson, to connect  up and start the new 25-drill, electric  drive air compressor for the Dominion  Copper Co. on the Idaho ground.  Installation of the^electric hoist at  the Moreen proceeds apace, but the  elecric feed line from Deadwood has  not yet been built. This will probably  be started soon. Manager Shallenber-  ger, of Spokane, was at the mine this  week.  This week the smelter of the Dominion Copper'Cb. estabiisfied" another new record for a week's run,  putting through 5,344 tons of ore in  seven days. The next best week was  that ending March 16th last, when  5,167 tons were smelted.  According to report, the Last  Chance, in Copper Camp, is to be de  veloped, one of the owners having  bonded his partners' interests for  $20,000, with the intention of starting  operations m a few days. The property adjoins the Big Copper, but has  had little work done thus far.  It appears as though the E. P. U.  syndicate, that has been steadily pegging away on the long tunnel on that  property since last fall, would soon  begin to see their reward in sight.    In |  . The Duncan mine, up the' west  Fork,-shipped a car of high grade ore  this week to the Trail smelter.  The new aerial tram from the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Napoleon mine was  tested this week, and is. expected to  be put into regular operation to the  Great Northern specially built spur  next week. After May 1st this mine  is expected to have a daily output of  some 150 tons of sulphur fluxing ore.  The Bonnington Falls power concern, known locally as the South  Kootenay Power Co., is still sending  current into the Boundary at 40,000  volts, the 60,000 volt rate having not  yet been turned on. The new switchboard at the Phoenix sub-station of this  company was being put in place ;his  week.  George A. MacLeod and H. W.  Warrington, of Grand Forks, who have  been working the Grant group of  copper claims near Chesaw, and shipping to the Granby smelter, last week  took bonds on nearly a dozen more  mineral properties in the same locality  for a sum said to approximate $50,000.  Machinery for operation of the properties is said to be on the program,'  Owing to the condition of the money  market in the east, which was affected  by the recent slump in financial  circles, it is understood, from a  circular recently issued by the  officials of the Providence Mining Co., Ltd., that the proposed increase of the capital stock of that corporation has been postponed for a  time.  The Idaho mine of the Dominion  Copper Co. is on the shipping list  again this week, with a record of 512  tons. While the large central power  plant has been under installation at  the Idaho, little or no ore has been  sent out for months, but from now on  there is likely to be more activity at  what is considered to be one of the  best mines of the company.  MARCH PAY  For Boundary Miners  and Smelterrrieri  There are Now about 2,000  Men Employed.  The importance that the mining and  smelting industry is attaining in the  Boundary district is shown by the  figures of the March payroll, which  took place Wednesday at all the large  mines and smelters in the district. It  is estimated that over $200,000 was  paid in this section in the month's  wages to approximately 2,000 men  employed in the Boundary mines and  smelters.  As the mines and smelters are but  just getting into full running order  again after the delays of the winter,  and as all three smelters expect, with  recent enlargements, to treat a greatly  increased tonnage of ore, if nothing  happens t6 prevent, by the time  summer arrives this payroll will almost  inevitably be proportionately increased  till it fully reaches the quarter million  dollar mark per month.  $350,000 FOR  pEVELOfJIlEP  Phoenix Amalgamated Getting Active.  Strong: Eastern Syndicate  Taking Large Interest.  A special meeting of the shorehold-  ers of the Morrison Mines, Ltd., owning thevMorrison mine, Deadwood  camp, is called~for "next monday, to  formally transfer the assets of the company to the Dominion Ccpper Co.  The latter company already owns the  shares of the company, and the meeting is more in the way of making a  merger of the companies, so that it  will not be necessary to continue the  life of the Morrison company.  age up about $roo per month per man  in this district, more or less, and the  following approximate figures of men  employed, and wages paid for March,  are on that basis:  Boundary holders of shares of the  Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines,  Ltd., which owns the War Eagle group  in this camp, have recently received  an important notice from the head  office of the company, at Sherbrooke,  Quebec, indicating that there is every  probability of operations being started  at the company's mines within the  next month or two.  The  company  has  made arrange-;  ments with  strong  Boston and  New  York capitalists to finance the development, the plan being substantially as  follows:  The company has 500,000 shares  of par value of $10 each, of which  amount 200,000 shares are now in the  treasury. An agreement has been  made for the sale of these treasury  shares at $1.75  per share,  giving a  Monthly wages, as a rule will aver-10*^ development fund of $350,000.  Granby Co.:  Men.  Payroll.

L.  Sutton, the purchasers being P. ].  Dermody and associates, who did not  care to continue work under the bond  at the former price. The statement is  also made that the heirs of Benjamin  a crosscut from the tunnei the indica-1 Perkins will try to set aside the bond  tions this week are improving. entered into by the liquidator.  Totals ... .. 2,075 $207,500  At both mines and smelters the  number of men varies from month to  month according to requirements, and  while the tonnage,shipped in the last  month has-not been -as large-as~is-. expected for April, because matters had  not been gotten into full running shape  after the necessitated curtailment of  operations in the winter, not a little  development work was done in advance  ���something which all the mine managers have in mind continually, to be  able to supply the large tonnage of ore  required to keep the smelting works in  blast up to capacity.  Nearly $90,000 of the above amount  was paid out this week in Phoenix  camp alone.  Of this amount the syndicate agrees to  pay $45,000 within 40 days.; after the  entire capital stock is deposited in the  Eastern Townships Bank at Sherbrooke, Quebec, and the other  $305,000 from time to time during  the progress of the work on the property of the company. In addition to  this, the syndicate also takes an. option on 200,000 shares of the individual stock at $1.50 per share.  It is understood that F. P. Buck,  the president of the Phoenix Amalgamated, intends to visit the Boundary before the end of April, for the  purpose of arranging for the beginning  of operations on the property of the  company, which consists of 10 claims,  210 acres, immediately adjoining the  Granby mines on the south'.

A meeting was called last Monday  evening by Fire Chief Stevens at the  city hall of those interested in the re  organization of a volunteer fire brigade,  and there was a good attendance. E.  A. Black was chosen secretary-treasurer  of the brigade, and V. M. Sherbino  was elected captain of the upper town  hose team, while R. J. Gardner will  occupy a similar position with the  lower town team. Both captains will  choose their men from those who have  signified their wish to join the organization or who many yet do so. There  is already a lengthy list, showing that  there is much interest being taken in  the matter.  A special committee consisting of  J. A. Morrin, C. D. Hunter and  officers of the organization, was appointed to interview the city council  to secure, if possible, an arrangement  for pay for firemen who turn out to  fires.  M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer  for the Dominion Copper Co., after  spending a week in the Boundary,  went out on Monday, being accom  panied as far as Spokane by W. C.  Thomas, smelter superintendent for  the company at Boundary Falls, and  now local manager.  Big Deal Pending in  Copper Camp  Heavy  Interests  Hold of \\  May   Take  Claims.  It is no new thing for those residing  in Phoenix, or having extensive interests here, to reach out into the other  fields of effort in the mining and other  lines, and again be rewarded by having  success perch upon their banners.  This was first shown by those interested in the Granby Consolidated.  J. P. Graves, of that company, is  making a success of his traction enterprises in and around Spokane. S. C.  H. C. Miner, A. C. Fluinerfell, and  H. N. Galer, also at one time leading  men of the Granby, are now making a  success of their coal mines at Coleman,  Alberta. G. W. Rumberger, the  father of Phoenix, has done well at  Cobalt, and is sure to make his Re-  gina investments profitable. J. L.  Martin is doing well thus far in the |  Coeur d'Alenes. The Skylark Development Co., owning the mine of  the same name, has done remarkably  well with that property���and the men  behind it are nearly all Phoenicians.  The Cariboo-McKinney Lessees���  Phoenix men, every one���have with  full faith, taken hold of that once-  famous, but later abandoned, Camp  McKinney dividend payer, with every  prospect of making it a profitable  undertaking.  And, once again, a Phoenician is to  the front with a mining  proposition.  that means much to the Boundary,  when carried to its fruition. Knowing  that one of the highest grade copper  districts of the Boundary is . what is  known as Copper camp, Dr. R. B.  Boucher, when he went down to Vancouver a few weeks ago, took with him  options or bonds on a group of eleven  of the best claims in that camp, which  immediately adjoin the King Solomon  and Big Copper mines, properties of  great merit and high values.  The doctor, who is connected also  with some of the enterprises above  named, has succeeded in interesting a  group of the strongest capitalists in  British Columbia in the matter, and in  a week or two representatives will be  on the ground to make a thorough examination of the properties. If the  claims "stand up" under fire, as it  were, there is no doubt whatever of  the options being exercised. In that  case, there will immediately be great  activity in Copper camp, and another  large addition to Boundary's payroll  and ore production.  At present nothing is given out as to  the identity of the new syndicate, but  there is ample assurance that it has  extensive resources, and can even build  a large smelter, should the properties  eventually warrant it���which is fully  anticipated by those who know them  best.    M. L. Jewell, representing the  American Type Founders Co. of Vancouver, was in the city Monday.  W. D. Lawson, who has been accountant at the local branch of the  Eastern Townships Bank, and was expecting shortly to go east, having been  transferred to Montreal, left suddenly  Monday, on receipt of telegram to the  effect that his father, who resides at  Toronto, is very low.  j^y.***;^.*.*^.*..^.*****^  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.

A. Mac-  donald, is not satisfied with it. But  then Mr. Macdonald must needs be  captious at anything the government  does.  ��� Things are certainly in an unsettled  state in the Crow's Nest Pass coal  fields, where the contracts between the  coal companies and miners expired  April 1st. ��� The long session of. the  operators and miners at Calgary came  to naught, and as a consequence there  is unrest in'the coal'regions. It is  most earnestly to be hoped, for,the  sake of the far reaching influence of a  strike of the coal miners, that a basis  for agreement will yet be found.  Last Saturday Vancouver was 21  years of age, and the price of realty  there did not stop going up, either, on  that account.  The present session of the Dominion  parliament will be notable"'for' the  amount of dirty linen washed, if for  nothing else.  , Down at Victoria, while the^three  lonely Socialists cut but little figure  when it comes to a vote, yet they seem  to * make themselvesv heard now ancl  again���even  if it  is only by casting  their votes with the Liberals.  j .       ���    ,,���  * Arid now we are told that the Grand  Trunk Pacific people .have- stopped  sufeveys and* all other- operations' at  Prjgice Rupert, the much advertised  Pacific terminus of the new line.

' The 'British-American Copper Mines  St 'Smelter Co., of Cleveland, Ohio,  have raised the price of the dollar stock  from 25 cents to 30 cents per share���  and' nervily tell present holders of  shares 'that their holdings have been  increased in value 20 per cent. They  now,rprint 'a'-fac-simile letter from  Claudet & Wynne, engineers, of Rossland, in support of their outlandish  statements regarding the wildcats,  which' they have -not even a crown  j grant to; but a close reading of the report does not bear out the claims  made.

It is  Just possible, however, that something  may be doing when Premier McBride,  of British Columbia, presents the side  of this province in that matter. This  province never has had justice in this  matter from Ottawa, and the Liberals  will not put themselves out to give us  justice.  1 "-The1 recent settlement oi the threat-  ened strike of'the railway trainmen,  which would, have involved all raids  west of Chicago, should be a source of  satisfaction to every person of the hundreds* bFth6rite6ids who would have  been affected by such a, wholesale tie-  up.! It also shows what can be accomplished when men, employers and  employees get together, determined to  find-some common ground fur agree  ment regarding'their relations to each  othen^ ��� The men did- not get all they  were? after,< and the employers did not  concede-all -thatr-was rasked 01:- them,  and yet both sides came out of the  protracted conferences with some satisfaction.  Excavations for the erection ol the  30o-ton concentraror at the Blue Bell  mine, on Kootenay lake, have already  begun.  A man from the Okanogan claims to  have discovered diamonds in that district; one stone is alleged to be worth  $15,000.  Nelson will have three big mines in  its vicinity, operating with large forces  this season, the Ymir, La Plata and  Queen Victoria.  The now famous Star-White mining  suit, which has tied up one of the best  Slocan mines, the Slocan Star, is up  once again for trial at Victoria.  Seven placer claims were.staked in  the heart of the residence district of  Vancouver last week, one nugget being  found valued at $15. A drain digger  made the first find.  The Old Dominion group, which  lies on Coal Hill, east of the Iron  Mask, near Kamloops, has been bonded to Glasgow parties, who have also  taken an option on the Python group.  The Canadian Geological Survey  will pay further attention to the Similkameen this year. During the coming  summer Chas. Camsell, who spent last  year on the Upper Similkameen, will  make a careful study of Camp Hedley.  Macdonell, Gzowski & Co. who have  the million-dollar contract for the fifteen-mile hydraulic ditch for the Cariboo Gold Mining Company, are now  ready to go on with that work as soon  as the snow goes off in the mountains.  Throughout the Slocan and Ains-  worth to the Lardeau, the belief in a  good year is growing stronger. In  Sheep Creek Valley many important  deals are under negotiation, the closing of any one of which will.be a great  stimulus to the district.  The Marb|e Bay copper mine on  Texada Island, has been closed down  as a result of a strike of the miners.  Alexander Grant, the manager, says  there is no telling when operations will  be resumed. The strike occurred as a  result of a refusal of the owners to  accede to a demand from the miners  for increased wages.  Who Is a Mining Engineer?  Of late the mining press has devoted  considerable space to the discussion of  this subject. While this discussion  was participated in by competent engineers and laymen throughout the  world, no definite conclusion as to  what or what did not constitute the  necessary essentials or qualifications of  a mining engineer was reached. The  result was expected, and therefore not  disappointing. Not with a view of a  revival of this discussion, but rather as  an interesting answer beaming on this  query, we reprint the statement of Mr.  George F. Taylor, M.E., made in a  reply to the question asked in a Nevada  City (California) court, "What constir  lutes a mining expert?" His reply was:  "A thorough knowledge of chemistry,  assaying, geology, mathematics, surveying, the connaisance of several languages, and of law." The examining  counsel appears to have been perfectly  satisfied with this answer.���Mining  Reporter.  Suffered  for   Five   Years with  Kidney   and  Liver Trouble.

C. Copper Co. is the Napoleon, located live miles from Marcus,  Wash., near Boyd's station on the  Great Northern. While its ores have  been used at the smelter largely for  their sulphur contents, the gold values  have gradually increased in the last  year, and they are now an important  constituent. The following from the  Spokane Chronicle of a recent date, is  interesting in this connection, especi  ally if the report is reliable:  It is reliably reported that the B.C.  Copper Company will install a cyanide  plant with a daily capacity of 500 tons  of oro at the Napoleon mine near the  Kettle river, in the Pierre Lake district.  The huge plant, with other improvements that will be made this summer,  will cost from $150,000 to $200,000.  The Napoleon group, which consists  of several claims, is two miles from  Hoyd's station, on the Great Northern  railway. The big plant will handle ore  from a big overflow dyke which shows  on the surface for a width of 500 feet,  and a length of 1000 feet. The ore,  an oxide of iron, averages $9 a ton in  gold, and will be mined with a steam  shovel on a quarrying plan. The de  posit has been proved to a depth of  175 feet.  Self-feeding ore bunkers will be installed, and a gravity car system will be  built to carry the ore from the steam  shove' to the ore bunkers From the  bunkers an aerial tramway one mile  long is being built to take the ore to  ihe end of a half-mile spur, which th'.  Great Northern will build from Boyd's  station.  The mine has been shipping a largt  tonnage to the B. C. Smelter for the  last two years. At present it is equip  ped with a five drill compressor, which  will be enlarged to a capacity of 10  drills. The big cyanide plant will be |  at the river end of the half-mile railway  spur,   Cuied of Rheumatism.  Mr.   Wm.   Henry   of Chattanooga,  Tenn , had rheumatism in his left arm.

"I applied  Chamberlain's Pain Balm and wrapped  the arm in flannel all night,- and to my  relief I found that the pain gradually  left me and the strength returned.    In  three weeks the rheumatism   had disappeared and has not since  returned."  If troubled with rheumatism try a few  applications of Pain   Balm.

To the initiated it is well-known that  the price of speculative warrants on the  London market govern sentiment in  Europe, and indirectly, if not directly,  cause a suspension of trade or renewed  buying by European consumers. While  prices of refined metal do not follow  warrants closely they sympathize more  or less acutely with the ups and downs  of warrants. It should be noted, too,  that "best selections" of English copper are not warrants, and are about  equivalent to American casting grade?.

Some temporary and much heeded  repairs were done recently to the wagon  road near the Snowshoe mine, but it is  hoped the government will early this  spring change the road so that it will  avoid the mining operations at the  Snowshoe, Rawhide", Gold Drop and  Curlew 'mines.

The Spokesman-Review, of Spokane,  states that J. P. Graves has taken an  option on all the outstanding stock of  the Chelan Transportation and Smelting Co., amounting to 420,000 shares.  The company has spent some $65,000  in grading a railway from Lake Chelan,  in Washington, to a group of claims  called the Holderi, in that district.  Mr. Graves and associates are now  developing this Holden group of copper claims under a bond, and it is  understooo that if the bond on the one  company is taken up that on the other  will also be exercised, as the mines  need the proposed railway of 13 miles  to get the ore out of the Cascade  mountains.
