Rumberger received a telegram Thursday, stating that Judjje  Irving had signed the certificate, by  virtue of which the Phoenix Water  Works Co. can now,, go ahead  and do business. It has taken six  months to get thi;s far, but before long  now the dirt will begin to fly.  As soon as a few more details are  completed, it is Mr. Rumberger's intention to proceed energetically with  the installation of the system. The  supply will be from the lake on the  New York claim and also from a number of clear springs. A tank to hold  100,000 gallons will be built at some  point above the Brooklyn mine, high  enough to afford good pressure in all  parts of the town where water may be  desired. It will be pumped into the  tank.  At first it is expected that about  7,00b,feet of four-inch .mains will be  required, in addition to -the laterals,  and the order for this will shortly be  placed. A number of'hydrants, for  fire protection, will also probably be  pu,t in. When completed, Phoenix  will have as good a water supply as  many   larger   places' and ot a better  quality than any in this section.  . 1 - ~- '���?  ** ���~^r~\   Telephone Company Changes Hands.

Queen Victoria visited Ireland this  week for the first time in 39 years, and  was received:with great enthusiasm.   .  An unsuccessful attempt was made  on the life of the Prince of Wales at  Brussels on Tuesday. The would-be  assassin is in custody.  The first synod of the new Church  of England diocese of Kootenay will  be held at Nelson on May 30.  The lloers Jiave captured a small  force of British troops, under Col.  llroadwood and seven guns, near  lilocnifontein.  "The miners' trouble at Rossland is  over. It was settled yesterday by the  acceptance of the proposition of the  mine owners to work on the contract  system. The matter has been pending several days, and its settlement  gives universal satisfaction.  Bnsybodies Have bad it Washed ont Almost  Every Day.  A number^of individuals who are  gi\en to sajing other thing-, than their  prayers, have been most industrious!}  circulating false reports in regard to  the washing out of the dam at the  Granby -smelter*-near ^Grand Forks  F'rom one to a dozen times daily the  dam has been washed out, for the last  week, right here in Phoenix. To set  this matter at rest the Pioneer man  this week, intciwewed DhL IVtJi. the  contractor who is building the dam  "There is and .has been ^absolutel)  no truth in the reports circulated outside," said Mr. Porter, "in regard to  the dam being washed out by high  water. At onq. time, several weeks  ago, there was some danger, but that  is now passed, and we arc pushing the  work of filling in the cribs as fa.5t as  possible. We expect to have our contract completed in about five or six  weeks."  The work of laying the railway  track of the spur, which crosses the  river over the dam, -will be done as.  soon as the latter is completed and as  everj thing else is in readiness, the reduction works will be blown in shortlj  thereafter. This should be in six or  seven weeks, or by June 1st.  It is certain that the reports of the  washing out of. the'dam did rjbt originate iii Phoenix, nor is it likely that  they ..came from Grand Forks.  Jubilee Singners next Tuesday.  The Okanogan Free Gold Mines is  to be reorganized and the stock made  assessable.   .   . '  The Kettle Kivcr railway bill was  defeated yesterday at Ottawa by a vote  of S3 against 39.  It is  expected   that  the Dominion  Copper  Co.'s  properties   in   Phoenix  will be operated in lull force in a short j earth-closets  time.  The council of the Phoenix Board  of Trade met Tuesday evening, and  there will be a general -meeting of the  entire board Monday evening.  Phoenix has been thus far in its  brief history been a healthy place, but  in all new and rapidly growing towns  there is always the element of carelessness and heedlessness to be reckoned  with, to a greater or less extent, where  sanitary matters are overlooked. In  Phoerm. however, if Dr. Jakes' instructions are carried out, the chance  of an epidemic from such sources will  be reduced to the minimum.  Dr. Jakes, of Greenwood, health  office tor the district, was in town  Thursday, and in company with Constable Darraugh, who lie deputized as  local health-'-officer,' made a ronnd .of  the town. He stated to: the .Pioneer  man that he proposed to strictly en-  fore the provincial - health act, which  resolution all good citizens will commend. Not only will the sanitary arrangements ot business houses and  hotels be looked alter, but those ot  every pri\ate residence as well. At his  request the Pioneer herewith presents  eqtracts Irom the health act that he  wishes to call special attection to.  The closet boxes referred to in section  38, are to be oi wood, metal lined, and  3 feet long, 15 inches high, 13 inches  wide at the botton and 15 inches wide  at the top. A contract will be let lor  a quantity, so as to reduce the cost.  Sec. 24.

Sec. 3S. No privy-closet shall be  established or constructed unless the  same be a water-closet connected with  a public system of sewerage, or, b)  approval of the medical health officer,  drained into a cess-tank made of galvanized iron yr brick set in cement,  branching from which is a system ot  subsoil irrigation drains laid between  ten to fourteen inches under the surface, and so arranged that the sewerage may he discliared either intermittently or alternately through different  poitions of the system; or unless the  privy-closet be an earth closet of a pattern approved by the medical health  officer, consisting of a water tight receptacle placed above the surface of  the ground, and so arranged that it  may be emptied or removed through  a hinged door or lid. Sufficient dry  earth or coal ashes to absorb all the  fluid parts of the deposit must be  thrown upon the contents of such  earth-closet daily or after each use.  The contents of all cess-tanks and  shall   be   emptied   and  ing or placing it in ji suitable dust bin  or barrel, to be lemOved at least once  a month.

The Patriotic Concert given in  Phoenix, with net results of $132.50  for the Canadian Patriotic Fund, has  been spoken of so favorably that there  is already considerable talk of its being given in Grand Forks, and if all  goes well it will be heard in that town  on Wednesday, April 18th, at the  opera house. It is not yet certain  that needful arrangements can be made  and that a majority of those who took  part can get a away to repeat the entertainment at the Forks; but it is believed .that ���[all .can' be arranged in a  few da>s.

These papers understood the reduction to apply to the freight rates  of the (.'.. P. R.., and at great length  congratulated themselves upon the success of their efforts toward forcing the  C. I'. R. to lower their rates. They  looked upon it as a signal victory for  themselves and did not intend that  the people should overlook the part  they played. They have probably discovered their error by   this   time   and  have learned that the reduction applied; average value of the ore at depth is  only to the rates of the Dominion Ex- isaid to give 14.6 per cent in copper,  press Co.���Ne'sjn Miner. j eight ounces in silver  and $10 to $1 5   - ! in gold.

And now it is  becoming famous in another and  equally beneficial manner. That is,  when Ixmds arc taken on properties in  this camp, it is now an almost invaria-.  ble rule that they are taken U[*. Since'  the first of January this has been  proved in the case of the Red .Rock,  Bald Eagle, Banner, Grey Eagle, Triangle, and lastly the Snowshoe, this  final payment on which was made last  Saturday in Greenwood.  History ���< the Smwiboo.  The Snowshoe was located in November, 1891, by Robert Densler, and  since then has had on eventful history.  In the spring of 1893 it was re-located  under its present title by Mr. Densler,  Thos. McDonnell and XV. W. Gibbs.  They did the annual assessment and  a little more, up to the winter of  1896-7, when the first bond was given  on the property. It was theft"bonded  by George Turner and F. C. Innes, at  that time of Vancouver, tor the Mini of  $2j,000, on which a ten per cent cash  payment "was made.' These gentlemen had tbe property developed  with  ��� the use of diamond drills, sinking two  holes in each vein. ��� They also did  similar work on an adjoining prope'rt} ,-  the Gold Drop. But the bond was  allowed to expire. In October, 1897,  Patrick Clark, the millionaire' mine'  owner of Spokane and Republic, and  who is said to be still having an, eye  on this^amp, secured a working bond,  for $50,000, and corvsiderable devaloji-  ment was undertaken by him, which  even at that.date-demonstrated the  possibilities of the mine.  But fortune was fickle with the owners, as they shortly alter learned with  disgust that Clark had thrown up the  bond and the mine was back on' their  hands. . Clark had turned his. attention to mining in Republic, where ore  values paid for the development of the  property as it went along. Of the  three Original owners, W. W. Gibbs  had had a sufficiency of disap|>oint-  ment, so he accordingly sold out hi.s  interests in,the fall of the same year,  to Robert Wood, of Greenwood, and  left the district.  In the early winter of 1898 Lorenzo  Macfarlane secured a working bond  on the.mine for $65,000 - for his,company, theKootenay Development company. The company worked steadily  tor 90 d.us, made its first pa) ment ot  10 per cent, $6,500, and quit work  shortly after.   ������'���������   ���  The  property  then remained  idle  ��� until the following March, )i.899), when  J. \V. Astley, a Rossland mining engineer, examined and reported on the  property for the Rossland and Skcau  British Columbia Syndicate, represented .in Rossland by Anthony j. McMillan. The syndicate was understood to be the. reorganized Kootenay  Development company. The report  proved favorable. When Mr. McMillan  approached the owners for a deal they  fought shy at first, but finally consented to bond the projierty for an additional advance of $5,000. The deal  was made at $70,000, in three payments. At the end of March, 1899,  the first payment of. $7,000 was  promptly met:. The second payment ,  of $25,200 was made last December,  as noted at the time in the Pioneer,  and the final payment of $37,800 was  made  at 6   p.m.   last������ Saturday.  The Snowshoe lies northeast of the  Gold Drop in Phoenix camp, and also  adjoins the Rawhide aud Monarch. It  is developed to a depth of 300 feet by  shaft, with levels at 70,120 and 200  feet res|iectively, with considerable  crosscutting and drifting. Recently a  tunnel ��� was started on the ore. The  showing on the surface consists of  three large ore bodies, opened up during the early'development of the mine  by crosscuts. The ore is a copper  pyrite in a mixed gangue of calcite,  with some specularite and iron pyrites.  The gold values run from $1 to $60,  and copper from 1 to 26 per cent.

YOLEN WILLIAMS  Over 1.4M.M0 Net T#�� 01 CaffcrtbM R��ck  Ii Sight Hsv, \��bu* at HU7 t*r Taa-  I.Unstlif Pf|arct.  From time to time  there has been  no little speculation  in regard to  the  size and value .of the mammoth  ore  bodies in the Knob Hill and Old Ironsides mines in this camp, and outside  of the officials these   figures  were  not  generally known. At the recent annual  meeting of the Knob Hill Gold Mining  Co., held in Montreal, Supt. W. Yolen  "Williams made his report in  detail of  the work done, the extent of the ore  bodies, as developed,  and the values  thereof, obtained by a large and  carefully made series of assays from  every '  part of the, pro-ierty.    The  report  is  interesting,   as   it sets at   rest  many  theories,, and   establishes   beyond   a  peradventure of a doubt the permanence  of.the camp.    We give l>elow  some  extracts from Mr. Williams' report.  "In estimating the amount of ore on  the dump which was taken out during  this development,of ;the mine from the  beginning of operations "liberal allow-  $$! aiice has been made for the material  'y,fKV*a^en out ��f the foot-wall drift, which  3sSfS3��*as nearly all waste, on account of the  ;pS|york having been done nearly alto-  ^-^Jjfgether in -the' country' rock, following  ^^. alongside of the" ore. There was a  total of about seven thousand tons of  material taken out of: the mine altogether from the different workings,  about 2,129 tons of which is estimated  as waste, and that leaves 4^71 tons of  ore remaining on" the dump "ready for  shipping.  "In figuring on the t the cpjantity of  ore exposed in a mine, in order to be  conservative and calculate with a de-  fit! Sree- ��^ accuracy�� 'l 's desirable to have  at least three sides of the ore body developed.  . "I t can be said that a large jiortion  of the ore body on the,Knob. Hill has  been exposed ;qri' Sfpur'fsides, 'Having  bieen penetrated thoroughly from the  surface, which makes it a pretty sate  proposition to figiire oh. ��� And regard  ing the other parts of the mine, where  tiere is only one side of the ore body  exposed, I think that. the remarkable regularity and continuity. of the  ore for a distance of nearly a thousand  feet in length, as shown in the tunnel,  is sufficient to warrant the presumption  that it will hold its uniformity within  the limit included in the following estimate, which is based upon the' dimensions of the ground developed, from  the level of the tunnel to the surface,  the length of which is 944 feet, width  206, feetby an average vertical depth of  ioo feet  "There arc 18,880,000 cubic feet  contained within the above boundaries,  and by allowing 12 cubic feet, in the  solid, of ore to the ton, which is a very  liberal allowance, we find that we have  the enormous amount of 1,573,333  tons of ore available for extraction  above the level of the. tunnel.' This  may seem to you as rather an extravagant and unsound calculation, but,  nevertheless, I know of no particular  reason why it is not approximately  correct. The indications both on top  and underground, in my opinion, warrant the belief that the figures and  conclusions drawn are somewhere near  right.  "I wish to call your attention to the  fact that the figures above given includes less than two-thirds of the length  of the claim above the level of the ttm-  nelj-so thatit is reasonable to presume  that the above tonnage will be increased by more than one-third when the  tunnel has been extended to the southern boundary of the. claim, because  greater depth will be attained from now  on, in proportion to the distance run.  "Another gratifying consideration in  this connection is the fact that the ore  body seems to improve steadily in grade  as we go into the mountain.  "In addition tothe amount of ore  now in sight and susceptible of being  developed in the tunnel, there is every |  reason to believeithat the second level]  will produce the same favorable results,  'with an equal amount of development.  As I have previously intimated,  the  winze to its present depth has passed  through a solid body of ore the entire  distance and the genera! indications  are thai the ore body will continue to  maintain its present magnitude to a  great depth. So that it can be said  with proprieiy that the amount of oie  that the mine is capable ol producing  is almost inexhaustible."  As regards the value of this ore, Mr.  Williams makes the following statement:  "I am very much pleased to say that  we have now a complete equipment  for assaying our own ore, which is in  charge of Mr. O. B. Smith, Jr., a gentleman who is a graduate from one of  the best institutions in the country,  and' is absolutely reliable and trustworthy in his actions, so in presenting  to you the following figuies I do so  with the utmost confidence that they  are reliable and correct.  "For the purpose of furnishing you  as complete and reliable a statement  in this report'as possible, I" have had  samples carefully taken of the ore  throughout the length of the Knob  Hill tunnel. The samples were taken  in 10 foot sections, including both  sides of roof and tunnel, each sample  representing from four to five hundred  pounds in weight, which should give a  very accurate average of the value of  the ore sampled.  "The assay returns were as  follows:  From mouth of tunnel to point  387 feet, total average value  per ton $ 6 50  From 660 feet point to 936 feet,  total average value per ton.. 10 24  General average value per  ton  of the whole      8 37  "From the above returns I arrive at  the following conclusions  as to the  value of ore in sight in the mines and  extracted on the dump:  Quantity   of   ore   on    dump,  ' tons     4��863  Deduction for moisture, lop.c.      486  Clmeron Court I. 0.

There is no reason why the  mine should.not be a dividend payer  in the immediate future and continue  so for many years. -It is evident. diat  large quantities 'of ore'should be handled with as much economy as possible,  in- order to derive the best results obtainable, and, "as'a railway will soon be  completed to 'We foot of the Knob  Hill, dump, where the ore can be  loaded cheaply from the large bins  now in course of erection, and with  your own smelter to treat the ore, it  seems to me that the road is clear for  the Knob Hill to become a grand  success in the near future."  It will be" seen, then, taking the  minimum figures, that the Knob Hill  has ore in sight representing a value  of $11,851,920; this ore can be mined  and treated at a total cost of $5.15  per ton,, and as the average1 value of  the ore is $8?3 7" per ton, the ore in  sight will yield a net profit of $4,556,-  -52b: ���';���'���' ���;> ���������-������-'���;'-���;' ���������." ':--���������������     ^  : .Mr. Williams, in making his estimate of the'ore in sight, has been very  conservative^ as for instance: In arriving.at the-number of; tons of Ore  blocked out, he takes an average depth  of but 190 feet, while the average  depth obtained in the tunnel is 150  feet. Then the width is taken as 200  feet, when, as a matter of fact, in two  of the crosscuts the width is nearly  300 feet. As stated in his report, the  winze has reached a depth of 150 feet  below the level of the tunnel and is in  solid'ore, and no account -of this, was  taken in his estimate. So that, taking  all these additional figures into consideration, the value of the ore in  sight could be safely, we think,,  doubled.  We notice that as depth was obtained in the tunnel the ore values increased, so much so that in the Old  Ironsides and Victoria, the adjoining  mines, the same ledge, but on the 300-  foot level, is yielding values that average about $25 per ton.  There is only one conclusion to be  drawn from these figures, and that is  that the Knob Hill shareholders have  in their mine a veritable bonanza, and  it is not to be wondered at, with a  knowledge of these facts, that during  the recent slumps, when' dividend  payers .and non-dividend payers declined from 30 to 100 points, Knob  Hill remained steady.
