"Good progress in opening up the  mine is being made," said Mr. Elliott.  "The main gangway is now in 1000  feet on No. 2 seam, and crosscutting  to four other parallel- seams will soon  be started, ' Within"a'" month,- rooms  v, ill be driven off, thus increasing the  output very materially. The production now amounts to 150 tons per day,  the entire work, pending installation of  the plant, being done by hand. The  piant is designed to maintain an output of 2,000 tons daily, and within  three months one-half that output will  be maintained. AJarger tonnage cannot' be'handled "uhtii the tipple and the  remainder of the surface? plant is installed! ^considerable portion of the  machinery has arrived and the remainder is'in transit;"The completion" of  the first-battery pp ovenss will? be un-  deirrakerj as soon" sis the;frost leaves the  ground.   :  ��� \. ���  -. -"The- bituminous-coal "measures of  theiTnternatipnaljCoal'^opiiipany,"' added Mr. Elliott,'"are the largest I have  everseen.; They;, have no equal in  Pennsylvania, the largest seam in _ the  famous Connellsville region being nine  feet thick, while one of the seams iat  Coleman is easily eighteen feet ,in  thickness. The Coleman coal is clean  being free from slate and other foreign  substances. The output of the International Coal company will only be  limited by the number of plants the  company may choose to build.'. The  measures at Coleman are especially  adapted for cheap mining, as there Will  be no shaft mining for several generations. .-��� Unlike the conditions prevailing in Pennsylvania, the; coal at Coleman can be mined and: extracted by  gravity. As the mines will be self-  draining, no pumping plant heed be  maintained. The plant will be of the  most modern and complete description, compressed air being :utilized 'in  the haulage of ore cars. Electrical  machinery will'also be utilized very  extensively.  I have no hesitation in. declaring  that the International Coal company  will soon be in a position to mine coal  and manufacture, coke equal to the  best in the world; as cheaply as any  riiine in the.

What tbe  Boston  Commercial  Says About  the Oraaby.  From a recent issue of the Boston  Commercial we take the following,  which was contained in Walker's weekT  ly copper letter in that financial publication. Mr. Walker is understood to  be a conservative writer, and' this  doubtless bears that out, as it is probable that the Granby is making an even  better showing than the following  would: indicate:  Granby stock sold down to 2S<g this  week, the lowest since it was. listed in  Boston. It is stated in official circles  that the company is now' running all  six furnaces and smelting about ,2,000  tons of ore daily. The "ore yields an  average of;27 pounds pffinejcopper to  the ton, and in addition there is a sav.  ing of about.$i.7S per ton.of gold and  silver. It is claimed that operating  expenses are being kept below $3 per  ton of ore treated; but this is not understood to include freight on bullion  to New York or refining and selling  charges. If the copper be figured at  10 cents per pound at the mine, however, it would indicate a yield of about  $4.50 per ton of ore, and a profit of  > The;citji^>bunciL4*'Phoenix ..met in  regular session; at the city office last  ..Wednesday night. There were present Aldermen Delahay, Porter, Boyle,  Birnie and McDonald'and City Solicitor Kerr. Owing to a. desire for the  presence of His Worship, the Mayor,  who was indisposed, it was decided to  ask permission to adjourn to his office  ���in the Baldwin block, to .which Mayor  Rumberger acceeded,/;the council with  Alderman Porterin the chair, passing  a resolution to that effect.  After the reading of the minutes of  the previous meeting and. the disposition of some.mihor matters, such as,  payment; of a few bills,and ordering repairs to the sidewalk in front. of Dominion hotel, the- council proceeded  to take up under the head of unfinished  business the matter of the trouble in  police circles, which was introduced  by Alderman Boyle. From that time  on Mayor Rumberger found himself  face-to-1ace-with:a determined lot of  men, who had opinions, arid were not  afraid to express them in no uncertain  language���language that needed no interpretation. "  .They charged him with not having  kept his promise to them to discharge  the chief of "police and procure the appointment of a new police commission.  In voicing- this charge the council  spolce as a unit. The mayor kept his  hea"d and listened patiently-while under  fire arid >vlien; Opportunity offered, explained that the delay.on,his part was  due \a his desire to secure an appointment that would he'acceptable to the  proposed new police commission, and  at the same time a person having provincial police authority. The council  was annoyed at this delay, and also at  the action of the mayor in ignoring  their recommendations in the matter  and preferring to consult Geo. A.  Fraser, M. L. A.  was becoming a widespread disgrace  to the city of Phoenix. The discussion was kept up till about midnight, during which time the five aldermen presented their resiepiations,  resolutions having been offered demanding the immediate discharge of Chief  Flood, and also that the Victoria authorities be informed that the City. of  Phoenix had no city government ��� and  asking them to step in and help the  community out of its tangle.  Before these resolutions were adopted, however, it-was decided,to adjourn  till Friday.night, to meet in the city  hall. . One of the resolutions . offered  demanded the dismissal forthwith by  the Attorney General of Police Magistrate Williams, as being unfit to hold  such an office. X,     .<^XX.  At last night's adjourned meeting of  the council; upon the -opinion of ��� the  city solicitor, ��� the . members of the  council decided that they did not constitute a legal legislative body and concluded not to attempt to do business  for the city.  The mayor and city clerk now constitute all the government Phoenix has.  They will endeavor to bring order out  chaos by invoking the aid of the provincial authorities.  The public will now proceed to sift  the matter and lay the blame for this  deplorable mixup where it belongs.  The new runaway connecting the  clay and copper quartz bins with the  matte elevator at the B. C. Copper  Co/s smelter is now completed. The  dust chamber will he connected with  the steel converter stack by a steel  flue.  The steam shovels at the Granby  mines have not been in operation the  past week or ten days in the glory  holes for the reason that it was found  necessary to remove the overhanging  surface surroundings. However, they  will be put in commission next week  and operated as usual.  The B. C. Copper Co. has purchased  four acres of clay land from R. D.  Kerr, located between Boundary Falls  and Midway. 'The land is valuable  on account of its clay character, being  of such a quality as to be excellent for  tapping, and lining converters. A spur  will shortly be built to the property.   <  JAMES BREEN  DID TALK  Dominion Copper Co.

ACTIVITY IN  WEST FORK  Work Begins on Big Property  in That Camp'  THE CARMI CLAIM TO BE EXPLOITED  Last Week Robert Loofley aad Beo Peterson  Went Up to tbe Mlse to Make Preliminary Preparations.  LeRol Shuts Down.  Considerable uneasiness is felt in  Rossland on account of the shutting  down of the DeRoi mine. Referring  to the matter, the Miner says there is  no reason for a moment's uneasiness  because the stoping crews have been  laid off at the LeRoi mine for a week  or ten days. There is nothing wrong  with the mine. The only hitch occurs  at the Nothport smelter, where conditions necessitate a brief shut-down  pending the completion of certain arrangements for the inauguration of  greater economy in the plans for treating LeRoi ore. It would be an extremely short-sighted and wasteful  policy for the management to adopt  any other method. It is to the interest of Rossland and the LeRoi company, that the LeRoi mine should be  operated to the best advantage, to the  end that dividends may be distributed  at the earliest   possible   moment, and I 87,'..i @ $13.00; hike, $I2.S7)L;(�� $13.00.  Those interested in mineral claims  and other property in the West Fork  country who have steadfastly held to  the befief that their time of harvest  would come are feeling jubilant over  the fact that operations on an extensive scale were soon to begin on the  Carmi and - other properties.; -The  boarding and bunk houses of the  Carmi will be overhauled and the  shaft repaired. There is said to be  much water to be pumped out, but in  the meantime a crew of eight or ten  men will be gathered and the work of  development will be vigorously pushed  forward. The coming summer will in  all probability see the Carmi one of  the big shippers of the West Fork to  our local smelters.  The Carmi has been closed down  for about two years and a half. Mr,  Thurston, the owner, at the time of the  close down received quite a lot of publicity over the building of the West  Fork road. The Carmi has a shaft  down 100 feet with 120 feet of drift  from the bottom. It is the intention  of the management, just as soon as  possible, to put two shifts to work  drifting on the ore. Several carloads  of ore have been shipped from this  property to the Greenwood smtlter  which gave very high returns, but the  cost of hauling was so great in the  absence of a wagon road, which the  government has been trying for the  last live years to build, it was thought  wise by the management to close the  property down until such time as the  wagon road would be completed.  The Carmi is equipped with all the  modem machinery necessary for the  further prosecution of deep mining.  Latest Prices in Melaln.  New Yokk���Copper, electrolytic, $12.-  Mr. Breen, after leaving Phoenix  last week, was interviewed in Spokane  where, it appears, he was more in a  talkative mood than he was when here.  To the reporter he said, "the Dominion Copper company has named a  price for which if will sell its properties  in the Bonndary district of British  Columbia to the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated company.'  Reports, however, of a consolidation  of the two properties are erroneous. If  the Montreal & Boston Consolidated  ,  company can raise the money to  buy ,  the   Dominion group, all   well   and,  good.    But weare not ready  to  take ���  shares in the  new company in,, payment.  The Dominion Copper company is  controlled by three interests���^Mackenzie & Mann, Senator George Cox  and myself. We have about seven-  eighths of all the shares.      ������'':"������'������ ;���'������-'  We thinkWe have about as good a  grade of ore as there is in  the Boundary district.    In 1901 we planned to  build a smelter, but we dropped that  idea, for I did not believe that the  Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern railway   '  would build then Into Phoenix camp.''  Without a rival line we should be at '���':  the mercy of the Canadian Pacific arid  I did not care to take any chances 6f"  building a smelter on such a basis.  The test of time has proven that I was  right in doubting that the  Hill roads "  would be constructed then 'into1 Phoenix.    It is not built yet though right  of way has been purchased.    The Hill  road purchased right of way near Phoenix from us for $25,000 last fall.    In  case the road is constructed the  Do  mtnion  company plans   to   build   a  smelter next year.    It would have an  initial capacity of 500 tons a day.  There is no truth to the report that  I was considering a plan to take the  management of the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated smelter at Boundary  Falls, B. C. I am not in tany way  connected with the project.  Steel was laid on the Canadian Pacific's spur to the Dominion group, with  the view of shipping about 10,000  tons of ore on the dump. However, if  the smelter is built, we may decide not  to ship, but to treat the dump ourselves."  the arrangements that are now in progress will serve best to that end.  The case of Tipping vs. Miiner  was dismissed by Judge Williams last  night.  The Rossland skating rink made a  profit of $500 for its proprietors during the past winter.  LOADING   ORE  AT  GRANBY   DINS.  Bur Silver, 55.'^  Lead, $4.05.  Peter Carlson Falls Forty Feet.  , Peter Carlson, aged 28 years, employed at the Granby mines, fell down  a forty foot raise at the Old Ironsides:  Thursday night about nine o'clock,  thereby sustaining serious injuries. One  shoulder was dislocated, and he received some severe bruises about the  head. He was taken to the Phoenix  General Hospital.  At this writing, Wednesday, it looks  as if the skating rink proprietors will  be entitled to demand another season  ticket from their patrons before spring  concludes to assert its rights.  ���M  1 #  *^"if  I  %  ,ri  ���HI  :'m:;  ;ll  ';Jhy-  ������mi.  : wi<  ������ ?&&���'-  ���:M  ������:*���  '�������!  . .-if.;*;-!

Can Accommodaik 1,000,000���  There is sufficient agricultural and  fruit land in Southern B. C. to accommodate 1,000,000 farmers, and the  price of farm and orchard produce will  always be higher in this province than  elswhere in Canada. This is .1 pointer  that it would be well for prospective  settlers in Manitoba and the Northwest to seriously consider before they  decide definitely to locate in the zero  belt.���Rossland Miner.  Because Russia is so large and Japan  so, comparatively, small, many persons  jump to the conclusion that Russia will  win. They read that the Russian army  on a peace establishment numbers  over 1,000,000 men- that its war  strength is over 5,000,000 men.  Japan's war strength is placed at less  than half a million men. Hence, some  say, there can be but one result when  so superioi a force comes in contact  with an inferior force.  Air Bompmssprs  T��fi 'GftttfflQIAN RANI) BRILL CO.  Head Office aud Works.  SHERBROOilE, QUE.  Branch Offices and Warehouses:  ROSSLAND, GRfiKN WOOD -ANItJfJ  VANCOUVER, B.C.  It is said that the Russians number  two to one of the Japs. This looks  bad. The average Russian is about  twice the size of the average Jap, which  is equal to about four to one against  the little brown men.  The proposition j of establishing a  lead smelterat Fernie, according to the  Free P^ress, can be consummated provided the C. P. R. will haul ore to  Fernie at half the present rate on fuel  for western points. , It is claimed that  the C. P.jR^can afford to do this, as  the traffic from that point is nearly all  westward and, the cars return empty.  Any fenterpr/se that depends on a reduction of freight rates by the C. P.R.  is a trifle dubious. ���  The town of Ymir is winning an un:  enviable reputation.' From this distance it appears that it has fallen into  the,hands of a timid, and at the same  time reckless.class of officials. It is a  sorry dayjfor any community when the  law-enforcing power, rests with officials  of immoral character, who use the  authority given theit\ by their fellow  citizens, not for the goodof those who  honored Jhem with   temporary  have  power, but for, the gratification of their  own lusts,, v It is one ofj.the curses^ of  British Columbia today, that so many  of her, towns and cities, especially in a  judiciary sense, are at the, mercy of  notoriously, corrupt , and immoral  police justices who���sjt in judgment  over the honourable cituen, and whose  decisions, from , timidity- or seared  moral sensibilities, turn justice into a  farce and shock decency by decisions  infamously unrighteous.  The Ymir Mirror undertook to expose and correct evils of the nature  referred to in its own town, and 'the  consequence is, it has all but been  driven out of business, and is now-  only able to get out a small' one-page  paper.' '  Had this paper, at any time during  the recent or present difficulty in police  circles taken upon itself the task of  laying bare the true existing condit;��is  it would now be more condemned  than praised. The successful country  ne.vspaper can only reflect public sentiment, and public sentiment is demonstrated more by the acts of public  officials than by journalistic or  pulpit'reformers.  !*b. c mining!  ��� ���  The Payne is shipping its zinc ore to  Antwerp, the Ivanhoe to Iola, and the  Bosun will shortly send its products'to  Colorado. 'I he Lucky Jim, expected  to be the largest zinc shipper of them  sX\\ will start up shortly, and will likely  export to Kansas. ,  - *  Manager Wilson of the Northport  smelter, made the statement that the  plant would resume operations within  thirty days, and that the new smelter  would be in shape to handle ore {vithin  a week, after which the sampling capacity of the works would  be 800  to  1000 tons daily.  1  Sandon 'ore shipments to date are  over 3,600 tons of silver-lead and zinc  combined, or nearly the entire output  of the whole Slocan.  Cher 500  men  are employed in the mines adjacent to  that city, and the indications are- that  the number will be more than doubled  the coming summer.  'The following ore samples were  sent by the C. P. R. a few days ago  to,' St. Louis World's Fair: The Star  750 lbs.; Sunset 570; Ivanhoe 500;  Reco 200: and the Payne 200 lbs.  With what has already gone the Sandon  mines will make an excellent exhibit  which for richness will eclipse the  whole world. The samples assay  from 200 to near 1,000 ozs. in si(ver  and a high percentage of lead.  |The statement that the White Bear  company,' Rossland, has commenced  placing orders for its concentrating  machinery indicates that the management proposes to take advantage 'of  the ' eaihest favorable weather conditions to commence construction.  The order for the timbers required for  the large concentratoi building has also  been drawn up, and the nutters are  now practical!) in shape for the start  on the' foundations as soon as the  snow goes off. Fortunately the sbse'nce  of frost in the ground will render further delays unnecessary.  The richest strike ever made in  Sandon's old stand-by the Payne, was  encountered in the deep workings of  No. 8 tunnel a few days ago. While  drifting on the vein a glittering mass of  rich ore, permeated with ruby silver and  grey copper was broken into.   Drifting  Judged by figures there can be but  one result in the present contest,  but as the Spokane Spokesman-Review  points out, wars not always are decided by the number of men taking part.  Turkey's peace establishment is less  than a quartet of a million and its war  strength is not one fifth that of Russia,  and yet in the war of 1878 Russia had  great difficulty in winning a victory  with the" best generals in Europe and  in a campaign w here the lines of communication were short and the scene  of operation not far removed from the  Russian frontier.  The situation today is wholly different from that existing in 1878. Tho  military operations will be 5000 miles,  from the Russian capital. Men,animals,  artillery and war supplies must be transported thousands of nuler overasingle  track railway that must, be, always  guarded. Serious losses on tlie.,f-ejd  can be made up only with tedious deli) s and great inconvnience.  >VMMU%  ��  g CYCLOPS MINING STEEL  E  CO  O  SHOES AND DIES  RUSSELL; LAW, CAULFIELD, Co.,;Ltd.i  AGENTS.

This will count  for a great deal when the actual struggle  begins.  ji.)r/nri .(.  Take  THE PIONEER  ?  You should jf you don't.   It gives th? riewsl  of the Boundary.

It costs or4yj$2.00. ��>14IH  Canada sympathizes with Japan because it does not like Russia;'the  United States sypathizes with Japan  because the United States loves the  United States. The Washington Star  says: Russia in Manchuria means a  barrier to American trade, where, under native influences, or under Japnese  influences, American trade would soon  be unhampered. We are seeking trade  with all of China, and unless Russia is  permitted to interpose her strong arms,  the pursuit should be successful. But  above the question of trade is tHe question of real civilization. The barbarities  of the Russian rule are well known.  Russia's form of government does not  make for peace, for education for hap  riess, or for progress. Her policy, to-1  \(ards the Jews is hideous. The condition of millions of her people are appalling. Why, then, should any power  occupying a place among the advanced  powers of the world view with approval  or even with complacency the extension  of Russian boundaries and influences  mi any direction?  i  Quietness" or "The Land of the Morning Calm." Until very recently it was  known as "The Hermits Kingdom,"  because of the seclusion with which  the inhabitants had managed lo surround themselves until the latter half  r-fthe nineteenth,}century. In ^1807  this name was changed from Chosen to  Dai Hai, or Tai *Haj\^ The'people o  Korea are not Japanese, and they are  not Chinese. They are Mongolian.  1 Manchuria which may soon become I  a, battle^ground'agasn, was conquered  by the Japanese and_ overrun by them  in the war with China in 1894-95. It  is one of the richest provinces of  China. It is 1 three times,as large ,as  the island of Japan. It has an excellent  climate, a fertile soil and abounds in  rich mint's of gold and t cqal^ ai*d iron  and 1 copper. It bas fine) harbors.,  which are, however, not ice fiee.  Silver Lead Record.  The Payne Mine in the Slocan holds  the record among the silv< r lead pro  perries of the province.    It was discovered in the fall of 1892  and  ever  since has been in continuous operation.  Since that lime it has shipped  50,000  tons of silver lead ore of a gross value  of $3,865,000 and an average value of  $77*3�� Per ton*   I" die same period  the mine has paid $r,438,000 in dividends.     The   company   owns   and  opecates a 200 ton concentrating plant,  as well as a power plant to which a  magnet separating plant has recently  been added. f The Payne mine is at  presfnt producing at the rate of 3000  tons   of zinc concentrates per year,  averaging about 55 per cent in zinc,  and 10 ounces in silver, and low in  lead, iron and impurities.  on the new discovery is going on to as  certain its extent.  Samples taken from and   is dependent on   Britain's  the vein assay as high as 840 ounces power.    Should   Japan    master  of silver to the ton, the highest values  ever obtained in that famous mine. At  present the rich show ing is exposed for  about two'feet in the face, and has all  the indications of a descending vein.

The evpression of opinion by the  London Spectator that if Japan wins  the war with Russia it will give the  Japanese the mastery in the Southern  Archipelgo and interfere with Australia's heritage in the Pacific, is being  mfich discussed "down under." The  Sydney Herald says It well deserves'  consideration.
