An Employee of the Ooldea Crown ��������� Relieved of $20.  Some two weeks since a hold upand  robbery occurred on the main wagon  road between the Snovvshoe mine, and  Hartford Junction. The thief "obtained $20 in money and easily made  tracks for other climes, as no attempt  was made to intercept him.     ���'  Chas. A. Hanna, an old employee  of the GoldenCrown mine, was walking  into town in the evening, when he was  suddenly commanded to hold up his  hands, and a figure enveloped'" in a  blanket, with eye-holes cut, told him  he wanted "num." Usually ; Mr.  Hanna carried a goodly roll, which  fact seemed to be known, but this time  he had hue $20, and the robber guick-  ly possessed himself of the amount and  told Hanna to go, pointing his gun at  him significantly at the same time.  Hanna was so thoroughly frightened  that he did not speak of it for a day  or two, and even now no notification  of the crime, so far as i& known, has  been senPtd the police. Mr. Wanna  is not sure who the bold highwayman  was, but has his suspicion*;.  ��� Such occurrences sLnbuM -toa v&pihvtt-  ed to the police without delay, aad  aside- from personal eam,i<feaJtii��ia,  every victim is undor lateral ��legation to do this, in order ehat thfjgg  ,arid robbers may not fot - eweoMrRgsd  in plying -their -nefarious  MACKINTOSH PUT UP  Conservatives._ Nominate Him  at Rossland.

Next Wednesday, April 18, the  Board of License Commissioners for  Boundary Creek License district will  meet at the B.C. hotel, Greenwood, to  consider the application of John Hart-  roan, (or a retail license for the Algoma  hotel at Dead wood.  The proprietors of the new Victoria  hotel, on Old Ironsides avenue, expect  Jay P. Graves, manager of the  Miner-Graves syndicate properties, in  thisand other camps, arrived in Phoenix last night. He was at Grand  Forks Wednesday,when the first ore  was treated at the Granby. smelter���  an auspicious and noteworthy event  in the histoiy of the Boundary country.  Ore from the City of Paris mine, in  Central camp, which had been hauled  to the'smelter in wagons, was given  the benefit of the first treatment,  which ivas done by roasting in heaps.  It was $40 ore, and those in the Forks  at the time assert that the sulphur  fumes was like sweet incense to the  long-expectant residents of that city.  As soon, as it is possible to get it  there ore will be sent to the smelter  from the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill  and Victoria mines, in Phoenix camp.  The dam, being built across the  north fork at the smelter, about which  there have been so many false and  foolish stories afloat, is progressing  steadily, and a (c\v weeks will see it  completed, and ore-laden trains from  Phoenix running across it : to the  smelter.  A strike ot unusual importance was  made last luesday on the littckhorn  in Deadwood camp The ore was  found at the 100 loot Ie\el, about 170  feet in; Tt is a betutilul chalcopynte,  and assays na\e given 32 per cent in  copper," While in all ^alue? $90 was  obtained. '1 he new cage wai installed at the mine on Thursday and is  working well.  The Cariboo, in Camp McKinne\,is  said,to be woiking in some of the richest ore yet struck in the bottom level  of the mine It was found east of the  old workings and in the Okanogan  claim.' More than 50 men are now  employed at this mine It has bcci  decided.I>v the directorate of the company to double the capacity of the  stamp mill, making 40 111 all.  At a meeting of the King Mining  company, owning the Oro Denoro, the  following were elected officers lor the  ensuing/year President, Geo R  Maxwell; ure president. Ross  Thompson, secretary-ti easurer, 'I homas  Anderson 1 hese, with Angus Mr-  Nish, Ales. J McMillan and Wm.  Cdrbett,     constitute    the    board   of  Strike oa the Hartford.  One of the most promising properties, among the many thai can be  put in this category near here, is the  Hartford. As readers of the Pioneer  are aware, a force of men has been  busy all winter sinking a double compartment shaft. Several days since  the 100.foot level was reached and  crosscutting was started. After''about  15 feet of this work the ore body, was  struck and at .present about eight , feet  of go"0d~coppefore- is in .sighn; Yes-i  terday, H. N. Galer, of the Granby  smelter, who is interested in the Hartford, visited the mine.  In Boundary Mines.  A strike of $60 ore is reported from  the sailor at Cam]) McKniney.  The new ore bins -of the Golden  Crown are filled to overflowing.  On the War Eagle,   crosscutting  is  now in progress at the   100-foot  level.  A number of well thought of  Summit camp properties are about to start  up.  The work on the Mother Lode,  Deadwood camp, is said to aggregate  close to 3000 feet.  The shaft in the Rambler near  Eholt, has reached a depth of about  So feet, and will be continued to the  100-foot level  Water has been pumped out of the  two Athelstan shafts, and drifting on  the ledge at a depth of 50 feet has  been started.  ���The continuity of ore bodies in  Central camp appears to be proven by  the recent strike reported in the City  of Paris mine.  On the Sunset, in Deadwood camp,  the shaft is now down 200 feet, and  that on the Crown Silver, adjoining,  is down 4S leet.  The Gold Drop made progress to  the extent of over 300    feet   of   work  directors.'  Board of Trade Meeting.  The monthly meeting of the Phoenix  board of trade was held last Monday  evening, with L C. Crawford in the  chair in the absence of president  Rumberger. I he committee on roads  reported and the building ot a road to  Eholt was discussed and the committee continued.  The board decided to secure legal  advice as to w hether public improvements could be made now and the  cost met by the ritv when mroi-  porated... A committee, consisting  of Messrs.

It is a pleasant thing to chronicle  that those who bond claims nowdays  in Phocnk camp invariably take up  the bonds. Men of means are fully  cogni/ant of the vast 7ones of pay ore  that have now been demonstrated to  underlie the hilltops in this locality.  '1 his is proved in a do/en cases'during  the last year, while the throwing up ol  a bond hereabouts has long since became a thing of the past.  'Last week's article, in which the P10-  nGsr quoted from the annual repoit of  Win Yolen Williams to the stockholders of the Knob Hill mine, that  the property now had 1,416,000 tons  of ore available, of an average ol $8.37  per ton, giv ing a total value ot $11,851,-  920, was an eye opener to many ol  tihejeaders of this paper. It must be  remembered, also, that this is but one  of many remarkable mines right in this  camp.  The real leaders of both parties-  Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper and E. V  Uodwel!���have declared against the  movement, but with characteristic selfishness the little men keep up their  agitation. Despite their protestations  and resolutions which are passed before  they are read, they have but. one.aim,  and that,is the political supremacy of  the party to which they happen tobe-  long. They care nothing how- much  they unsettle business, or what antagonisms they breed in the community,  so long as they are permitted to play  the game ot jx>litics.-���>Ielso.n.

A short time since the PionGor announced that, pursuant to a request of  the Phoenix Board of Trade the mining recorders at Midway and Grand  Forks had been empowered to act as  gold commissioners within the limits  of their respective jurisdictions This  was a move in the right direction, and  will be appreciated in the boundary.  Now we learn that Phocniec i<5 also to  have a deputy recorder for both the  Kettle RfveTand Grand Forks mining  divisions. This will be even a greater  convenience to mining men gonorally  resident within miles ��f Phoenix.  WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.  DID HE WANT IT?  The mayor of Grand Forks has  licen fathering-another Kettle River  Railway bill at Ottawa, which was  billed last week in the railway committee. Although the Great Northern  and Grand Trunk interests were sup-  ]>osed to be behind this project, v. Inch  tvould fuinish competition to the C.P.  K.. in the Boundarv, the dispatches  stated that there were but few\ at  Ottawa to work for its passage.  If the mayor and. the people ol  Grand Foiks were really in earnest  about this bill, why was not the endorsement of Greenwood and Phoenix  requested? It is said that the Greenwood board of trade would have sent  in a strong recommendation of the  ' bill had it been asked, and the chances  are that the Phoenix board of trade  would have done likewise. Hut, no,  they were not asked, although all  boundary towns are interested in the  matter.  It looks as though Mr. Manley was  putting up a big bluff when' he'went to  Ottawa, but at the same time had no  real expectation of winning. If not,  lie made a great mistake in not getting  ��� he lepresentative bodies of the district generally to endorse the bill.  Such an effort"would have cost but  little and would have materially  strengthened his jiosition before the  xailway committee at Ottawa  The political situation in British  Columbia is something like aSilverton  coi ktail: a little of everything, pretty  well mixed.���Slocan Drill.

In-  \NNUAL REPORTS ARE INTERESTING  pupt. Wo. Yoleo Williams, Of The Old Ironsides and Knob Hill Mines Gives Some  Figures About Work Done.  Last week the Pioneer gave extracts  'rom the annual report of Supt. Win.  ��olen Williams in regard to the amount  ' ore in sight and  now available -��� in  he Knob Hill mine.    It  will  be  re-  lembered that Mr. Williams made  a  friiscn'.itive/estimate of the ore at an  ivcr.ige of $8.37 per ton, and showed  tat that one mine already   has  over  ��11,000,000 worth of ore,   ready for  ^toping and shipment.  This week the Pioneer gives further  extracts from the report referred to, in  regard to.the development work done,  rwhich are also of more  than   passing  fanterest.    The first of these extracts is  rin regard to the Old Ironsides and the  [figures are up to the end of last year.  Had 2,500 Feet of Work Done.  On the Old  Ironsides,  over  2500  ' feet of development  Work   has   been  :dona    No. 1 shaft is down   210  feet  r ;V.-*and No. 2 shaft 300 feet, and  on   the  ',- flatter sinking is being continued to the  '.;s-$!#|po-foot  level.    The  two  shafts   are  .;��^%cady connected at the 200-foot level  "*'qy a  320-foot  crosscut,   which  runs  ; %  \, through an 90-foot ore body.    At   the  ^.'���Sf^ao�� an<^ 3��c 'oot.levels there are over  ^g��i 600 feet of drifts and crosscuts.    The  " ^average cost of drifting per  foot  has  tbeen $19.44^ and of sinking $33.80.  Shaft. No.   1   is  skuatcd   near  the  Jcenter of the claim,   both   in   length  j.^jjsg-ind   width.    The   shaft   was started  1^^'Jiear the discovery of-the claim,   and  and east at a point in the tunnel 366  feet from the mouth, for the purpose  of determining the width of the ore  body and to locate its western boundary or footwall, which was done at a  distance of 168 feet from the main  tunnel, and the width of the ore body  was proven to be fully 260 feet at  right angles.to its general trend.  Drifting was done along the footwall  for a distance of 189 feet, and another  crosscut made from the face to intersect with the main tunnel again, a distance of 221 feet, thus blocking out a  piece ot ground approaching 200 feet  square. -  " A connection was made to the  surface from, the first crosscut mentioned, for the purpose of better ventilation and also to prospect the ground  between the surface and the level of  tunnel, a distance of 135 feet vertically,which was proven to be all solid  ore.  "Another connection to the . surface  is now being made about 500 feet further in the tunnel. A shaft has been  sunk from the surface.to a depth exceeding 100 feet, and will be continued  until the connection is effected with  the upraise now in progress, which  should be done early next month.  This vVork is intended to serve a double  purpose of affording better ventilation  and to prospect the ground in the  same manner as the other surface connection above referred to. This will  supply sufficient ventilation to enable  us to continue the'main tunnel to the  extreme south end of the claim, a distance of about 500 feet, without having to make another air connection to ]  the surface.  '  "A winze is being sunk in  the  east  crosscut at the 336-foot station in  the  tunnel,'which had attained  a  vertical  depth of 100 feet from the  tunnel  on  January 1st.    The results obtained in  this  vvinze  from   the  beginning have  been exceedingly  satisfactory,   having  been in solid clean ore the whole  distance, and showing no signs of giving  out.    It was supposed at the time the  vvinze was started, that the hangingvvall  on the eastern  boundary  of the  ore  had been encountered, and it was  the  intention to sink along the wall and to  follow the dip, but a little preliminary  work  there  convinced  me  that   the  hangingwallhad not been encountered,  as good ore was found to exist back of  the supposed hanging wall, a very, few-  feet below the level.    This   discovery  was the cause of changing  to  sinking  vertically, instead of on an  incline  as  at first proposed, hence, it can be seen  that   the   winze   is not following any  wall, but is penetrating into  the  ore  body.   It is simply a  matter  of conjecture as to how far we can   continue  sinking in the present way   before  encountering  the  footwall.     This    depends entirely   on   the dip from the  level down.    It is hardly probable that  'the''foot wall will   be reached  within  less than 200 feet from level and  possibly not for 300   feet.    Of course   it  will not make any particular difference  in the results when or where it will be  found; it will simply necessitate changing the angle of the winze to  conform  with   it   and   to follow it downward.  It is the intention   to   eventually   intersect this winze with the  Old   Ironsides  south   drift   on    the    200-foot  level."  Clmeron Court 1.0. F.

'-"'Sinking was continued to the depth of  '' aio feet from  the  surface.    A- level  was started at the 200-foot mark,   and  a crosscut run in an easterly direction  The ore body was  encountered  at  a  distance   of  about   40  feet from the  shaft, and the crosscut was continued  to the side-line of the  claim,   demonstrating the width, of the  ore  on   that  level to be about 80 feet, arid the  rest  of the  material  passed  through   was  hyavily  mineralized,  but carried   no  values of any consequence.  No. 2 shaft was sunk on the east  side of the claim, and was continued  down 200 feet, and intersected the  crosscut previously referred to. This  ?>haft answered a double purpose, that  of ventilating the mine and furnishing  an additional exit to the surface.  The general indications are that the  ore in this mountain is almost inex-  '*% haustible, and it has been satisfactorily  -* demonstrated that the grade of ore improves with depth. Assays showing  ���vaues of upwards of $100 per ton have  been obtained on the 200-foot level.  The bulk of the ore for a distance of  80 feet yields a general average of $15  per ton, but by selecting the ore a  much better average could be obtained.  Development oa Knob Hill.  On the Knob Hill the mine has  lwen developed principally by. tunneling and Mr.Williams, in his report,  read at the annual meeting of the company, speaking of , the. development  work, says:���  "The tunnel enters the claim at its  extreme north end boundary and runs  diagonally across it for a distance of  634 feet, at which point the east side  line is reached. The course of the  tunnel was changed at that place to  conform with the direction of the side  line, which is also in conformity with  the general trend of the ore body.  "The main tunnel was extended  550 feet during the year, making its  entire length 985 feet to date. In addition to the extending of the tunnel,  there was also 904 feet of drifting and  crosscutting done, making an aggregate of 1,454 feet of tunnelling for the  year. There were 277 feet of sinking  and 65 feet of upraising made, which  brings the total number of feet to  2,348. The above developments represent in round numbers the blasting  and breaking of 84,000 cubic feet of  solid ground, and , the handling and  removal of 7,000 tons of material.  "A crosscut was made to  the  west  This Interests Claim Owners.  A decision of peculiar interest to  prospectors and mining men has been  handed down in the supreme court of  British Columbia in..the case of Grutch-  field vs. Harbottle. The defendant  had purchased the May Day and Equalizer claims from W. T. Beadles of  Salmo, and, subsequent to the sale,  but before it was recorded, Mr. Bead-j  les' license ran out. In the meantime  the plantiff restaked the claims, and  the decision confirms him in his possession of them.  Corner Phoenix St. and Brooklyn Ave.  LATE STOCK  QUOTATIONS.
