Was  in  Last Tuesday was the best pay day  ever cxpeiienccd in Phoenix or the  Boundary cntintiy, more men having  been employed during the month of  March, and consequently lninging a  |.;reatei payroll than at any previous  time. Besides this, more Sundays  were woiked than is oiten the case, as  it happened.  Trie amount of money distributed  that day for wages alone in this camp  was appioxmiately $��5,000���which  means that about 650 men were paid,  as taking it geneially, the men employed eani an average of $100 per  month each.. Muckers receive $3 per  day, but all miners get $3.50 and engineers, machinists, blacksmiths, shift-  bosses, etc., geneially receive $4 per  day. The above payroll was for men  employed at the Gianby and Dominion mines here, only.  With the amounts paid out this  month at the Mother Lode and other  mines, and at the three district  smelters, numbering something like  1,200 men all told directly engaged in  mining or smelting, the Boundary payroll for March is about $120,000,  which is larger than it has ever been  before.  W. J. Harris, one of the men who  made a fortune from the LeRoi mine,  Rossland, was here Wednesday, and  expects to do some work on the Lone  Star, a group near the Wolfard group  of claims in South Wellington camp.  Public Redding Room Propoied.  A project is being talked of for the  establishment of public reading room,  the idea being to have it in the corner  ground floor room . of new Miners'  Union hall. The Trades and Labor  Council was dissolved a short time  ago, the business done by the council  now being canied on by a committee  from each union. Heretofore each  union paid a per capita of 15 cents per  quarter per member to the council,  and the plan is now to have this 15  cents paid in for the benefit of the  leading room. This would raise about  $So per quarter, and while this is not  sufficient to mret the expense of such  a reading room, a special committee  fiom each union now has the matter in  charge to raise the balance of the  funds needed.  SNOWSHOE  IS TO REOPEN  Likely to Send Ore to North-  port.  Jay P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Consolidated, returned to  Spokane ibis week from New York  and oilier eastern points, where he ht.d  been for two or three months.  W. C. Thomas, smelter superintendent of the Dominion Copper Co., was  here Saturday with E. N. Trayler, of  the Traylor Engineering Works, Allen-  town, Penn. They went through the  Granby mines, and visited the Granby  smelter the same afternoon, dining  with Supt. Hodges. Mr. Trayler, who  is an engineer and mining man of experience, last week secured the order  for the mammoth third furnace to be  installed at the Dominion Copper  Co.'s smelter at Boundary Falls.  Arthur C. James, of New York, a  director of the Granby Consolidated,  who has been on a trip to Arizona,  will arrive here tomorrow in his private car, over the Great Northern. He  will spend today at the Granby smelter, accompanied by A. L. White, of  Spokane, and tomorrow- look over the  Granby mines for the first time. Mr.  James' family is connected with the  firm of Phelps, Dodge & Co., owners  of the Copper Queen mine in Arizona,  the greatest copper producer on the  American continent, shipping five cars  of pure copper every day.

We do  not think we are going beyond facts when  we say that our stock is second  to  none in  this section.  Mb  The Boundary has become justly  famous for its gigantic low grade  mines, which are now paying regular  dividends to those who had the foresight to stay with them through thick  and thin. For many years to come  these mines can be relied upon to be  profit producers, as they have untold  millions o( tons of ore !o draw on,  which will last for generations.  But in the high grade mines of the  Boundary L-> still another element of  wealth that is gradually growing more  and more important. While th'j low-  grade copper lories require hundreds  of thousands, perhaps millions, of dollars to bring them to the profit producing stage, the high grade properties  can be handled and developed with  comparatively small sums, and are  thus poor men's propositions, so to  speak. Consequently, they have no  small attiaction for the mining man of  more or less limited means. If the  ''stuff" is there, il can be wrested from  old mother eanh mere quickly anil  economically than from the most tre-  mciidt us copprr producers of the  Boundary. Therefore the high grade  properties are receiving more and  more attention each year, and it maybe said are making good each year in  larger degree.  A year ago the Pioneer man visited  the Skylark mine, in the camp of the  same name, two or three miles below  Phoenix, and described what he saw-  there. This week he made a similar  trip, and the change in conditions was  like a metamorphosis���and it was a  change for the better. The Providence  is often referred lo as the banner high  grade property of the Boundary, and  that splendid property is fully entitled  to that well deserved appellation. But  competent judges, familiar with both  mines, are free to note today that the  Skylark is today a better anil richer  property than the Providence was at  the same stage <.f development���and  this is not to the discredit of the Providence either. It merely means that  another Providence is looming up on  the horizon of the Boundary, and that  the Skyiark seems destined, in the  course of anothet year or two, to push  the Providence hard for first place.  When the Skylark Development Co.  took hold of t'nc mine some eighteen  months ago, there was a shaft in the  property about 75 feet in ��� depth, with  evels in both directions, and some  good ore in the mine. The property-  was in the bands of practical mining  men���all residents of Phoenix���and  they proceeded   to   develop   it  along  practical lines. Incidentally thev did  it so well that they have been able in  that time to pay off about $20,000 of  the $30,000 bond, digging that amount  out of the mine, and paying for development as well. Few mines in this  part of British Columbia can show  such a record���certainly none that we  can recall just now.  I At present the workings are 150  fret in depth, with long drifts both  ways at the 75-foot and r 50-foot levels,  j out of which the rich ore is steadily  being sloped and shipped to the smelters. Not only this, but a new main  working incline shaft has been driven  several hundred feet south of the old  shaft, and new engine house, blacksmith shop and ore bins have been  built, a new boarding house having  been put up about a year ago.  The mine having proved so much  richer and better than the Owners  thought, and surface work having  proved the ore body to be so much  larger in extent, it has been determined  also to sink the new shaft another 100  feet, and this week Foreman Rovve  put a force of men at this work. This  will doubtless require two or three  months, and if the ore body is found  as strong and rich at a depth of 250  feet as at present in the workings, the  mine will, it is estimated, double in  value at once.  At present ore has been blocked  out that is estimated to be worth at  least $40,000, or thereabouts, the highest grade having given smelter returns  of $ 1 65 in gold and silver, while the  second class ore runs around $50 per  ton. Wni. Rovve, the foreman, is a  practical miner of many years' experience, and worked in the Skylark ten  or twelve years ago, when the owners  believed they had dug out all the ore  available. He has now a force of  about 20 men employed, but if the  oie is found in place at the 250-loot  level, he will probably be called on to  double this number.  Twelve years ago, before there was  a railway, and hardly a wagon road in  the Boundary, the Skylark was a  shipper, when Howard C. Walters had  a bond on the property. In those  days, W.H.Covert, the Kettle valley  rancher, packed the ore on mules over  the trail to Kettle river, thence on wagons to Marcus, to the railway. liven  with that great expense, the ore paid a  good profit, till silver dropped in price  and Walters had a severe attack of  cold feet.  What the Skylark may amount to  in the future, is, of course, more or  less problematical, but if it continues  to give as relatively as good an account of itself as it has in the past, it  bids fair, with adequate development,  to take a place second to none in the  Boundary in the high grade class.  While the property is under bond to a  corporation, it might also be called a  close corporation, as very few of the  treasury shares have been sold, the  property turning out so well thus far,  that, contrary to general usage in such  cases made and provided, it was not  necessary to sell shares either to make  payments on the bond or to proceeil  with the active development of the  property.  There seems to be gooil reason to  think that in a short time the Snow-  shoe mine, in this camp, will be operating once more, and shipping some  ol its large ore reserves to the smeller  ���probably the Northport smelter.  A.J.McMillan, managing director of  the Le Roi mine, at Rossland, returned to that city late last week from an  eight months' trip to London, England. While there is a contract now-  existing by which the Le Roi ore is  sent to the Northport smelter, owned  by the Le Roi company, the contract  having been made by the board of directors, active preparations are under  way for the starting of operations at  the Northport   plant.  While no official statement is available, it is understood that the Snow-  shoe mine is likely to be reopened  about the first of May, and its product  sent, at least, in part, to the Northport  smelter. There has always been a  desire to try the mixing of Boundary  ores with those of the LeRoi mine,  and if the above idea is ' carried  out, it will be tried at N. rthport. It  is expected that Win. To.mlmson, formerly office man with the Snowshoe  Gold & Copper Mines, Ltd., and.R.  A. Fraser, who was employed by the  late foreman, J. H. Trevorrow, at the  the Snowshoe, will become residents  of Phoenix again ere long.  The Snowshoe has not been operated since November, i.y.03 .. It has  shipped nearly 100,000 tons of ore  altogether to customs smelters, and is  said to have something like 100,000  ions of ore broken down in the stopes  today. The property has a complete,  machinery plant,'and could be started  up on short notice. It adjoins the  Gold Drop, now owned by the Granby  Consolidated, having much the same  character of low grade copper ore. The  property is owned entirely in England,  George S. Waterlow, Esq., being vice-  chairman of the company, the Earl of  Chesterfield chairman. Thousands of  feet of development work have been  done.  Later���Since the above was put in  type, a representative of the Pioneer  interviewed Albert ��� 1. Goodell, superintendent of the Northport smelter,  who was on a visit to Greenwood and  Boundary Falls, and Mr. Goodell  corroborated the report that it was the  intention of Mr. McMillan to resume  work at the Snowshoe mine within, a  short time.  This week the Preston .is . onc..the.  shipping list for the first' tune..VS..."'  .  .    Some >o_ cars:,,,pf .ore-.Tiaye .Mbeen 1  shipped from the Gold Drop thus far.  An excellent grade of ore is being  encountered in the bottom of the shaft  of the Prince Henry, where sinking is  in progress.  This week the Strathmore sent 40  tons of second class ore to the Greenwood sinojiw.������ ThetfWMtic- is said to be  looking particularly well.  Win. Eraser, foreman for the Dominion Copper Co. at the Mountain  Rose, Summit camp, has half a dozen  men at work, and has begun sinking a  shaft.-'-''"     ���-'  DON'T LIKE  SUNDAY BILL  Smelter Managers   Will  pose Measure.  Op-  ORO DENORO TO  B. C. COPPER  Former  CO.  Cents  to Receive  20  Per Share.  The bonding of the Oro Denoro  mine by the British Columbia Copper  Co. was announced two weeks ago by  the Pioneer but no details were then  available. Smith Curtis, secietary ot  the Denoro Mines, Ltd., has just  issued a circular lo the shareholders,  explaining at length the nature of the  deal.  In the circular Mr. Curtis states:  "Your diiectois havearranged with the  Biitish Columbia Coppei Co., Ltd., to  give the latter until the 26th of June,  1906, the privilege of developing the  O10 Denoro mine and the option of  acquiring the mine within that period,  the price to be paid in that company's  shaies���in fact to consummate an  amalgamation. The company has  made a substantial dep>sit, which will  he forfeited in case the option is not  exeicised. After the payment of the  usual commission on the sale, the  shares to be received will at their present market value equal about 20 cents  for each outstanding Denoro share.''  After describing the B. C. Copper  company's position and the favorable  outcome of the deal in question looked  lor for the Oro Denoro shareholders,  the ciicular proceeds : "As .to the  success of copper mining and smelting  be the Boundary district, reference may  in made to the increase in the value of  the Granby Co. operating similar copper ore deposits. While treating 50,-  000 tons a month, its market valuation  rose from $4,500,000 in 1904 to $12,-  000,000, and, since it began a few  months ago to treat 70,000 toni a  month, has risen lo over $iS,000,000.  It is now said to be earning $200,000  a month profits. The disadvantages  of operating a low grade copper ore  property like the Oro Denoro without  the mine owning a smelter are such  that your directors can heartily recommend and approve of the arrangements  made. The Denoro company retains  its otlier mining claims and cash assets,  lrom which after a time a fajr return  will doubtless be made."  Ore' bunkers are being erected on  the nevv Providence mine spur on the  C P. R., from which the second class  dump ore of .thpi property will be  shipped.  This week a rich, body of ore, at  least six inches wide, was struck in the  north workings'of the. Skylark, where  no ore had been found previously.  The owners are not a little pleased.  In the Pathfinder ' mine, recently  bonded by the Granby Go., and where  spnieao men are at- work, drifting is  going on at the bottom of the 135 foot  shalt to find the ore body. It will  probably require several months.  : At the Granby No. 3 terminal the  work'of putting in the automatic ore  bin feeder is now in process, and will  probably require another week or two.  In the .meantime, tbe large ore crusher  at the same point is being put in the  best of order.  A director of the Granby. Consolidated is- reported as stating that  although he is only one membea of.the  board and'lie would not care to go on  record "over his'ria'me, yet he believes  that ra% will be paid in dividends  on Granby: stock this year.  Jack .H'arland,-one of the early time  prospectors of the Boundary, came in  from ^Pierce City, Idaho, placer  diggings this week, where he is doing  pretty well. Harland in 1893 put up  an arrastra--oh 'Copper 'creek and  ground up free gold from the Great  Hopes claim (or a time.  Upwards of 1,000,000 shares of the  Dominion Copper Co. stock have been  turned into the company for exchange  into, new shares of $10 par value, says  a Boston report. The certificates for  the new shares are no.v being delivered.  Of the new stock there will be but  500,000 shares, as against 5,000,000  at present of$i par value.  The ��� B.' C. Copper Co.'s Mother  Lode-.smelter at Greenwood is one of  the busigsx places in the Boundary  these days. The ore bins . are being  torn away entirely and new ones are  to be erected. Excavating is proceeding apace for- three new giant furnaces  now-.-being-maraifactured. ��� When they  are actually being .installed the plant  will probably be shut down, except for  construction.work, for several weeks.  The Engineering & Mining. Journal  gives the average pcice of electrolytic  copper for March at 1S.361 cents.  This compares with'an average price  17.S69C in February-and^ 1S.310C in  January. Upon the basis of these  quotations the United Copper, Granby,  Shannon,' Old Dominion, United States  Mining, British Columbia Copper and  a number of other mining companies  will probably receivepayment for their  output sold during thatperiod. .������  Lord's Day Alliance is Making Trouble.  There is danger that the Lord's Day  Alliance people will stir up a hornet's  nest among the smelting concerns of  this piovince, in the attempts being  made to get through legislation at Ottawa to close all industries throughout  Canada on Suifdays. One of the  greatest oeti.ions over presented to the  Dominion parliament was filed in favor  of such legislation, and the bill has  been introduced and read twice.  1 Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Co.,  was askedihia- opinion - of the matter  this week by the Pioneer, and he stated that the plan of closing smelters on  Sundays was entirely impracticable  from an industrial standpoint���just as  much so as it would be to stop railway  trains and steamships on Sundays. It  would mean the banking of fires, and  the general disarrangement of the plans  of operating all the smelters, as they  could only be operated to advantage  by doing it continuously. The smelting companies would lose much more  than the actual tonnage that might be  smelted on Sundays, as stopping and  starting large reduction works was a  matter ol thousands of dollars each  time of itself.  Ft is more than likely that the  smelter men of the province will take  concerted action on the subject and  send a memorial to the Ottawa authorities. Following is the dispatch, le-  ferring to the matter :  "Ottawa, April 10���The special  committee of parliament on the government's Sunday Observance bill met  today for organization. The minister  of justice, who has charge of the bill,  slated plainly that it must be reported  back to the house without undue delay. A motion of the house giving It  its second reading expressed approval  of its principle. It remained therefore  only to see in what respects it could be  improved. Any members interested,  with a suggestion to offer, would be  heard before the committee, and the  latter could then determine what to be  done in each case.  "Duncan Ross, M.P., of Yale-Cariboo, asked the minister of justice  whether the adoption of the bill would  compel smelters to suspend operations  over Sunday. The smelters of British  Columbia were of the opinion that it  would cause great loss if they were  compelled to suspend business in this  way.' "Would the bill," he asked,  "compel them to bank fires over the  first'day in each week?" Hon. Chas.  Fitzpatrick answered that this was a  matter of opinion that could be considered at the next meeting of the  committee on the 19th instant."  . Cascade is moving for a waterworks  system, to be supplied from a couple  of large tanks. Three disastrous fires  have occurred in the last six years  for lack of such a system.

They are in jail at  Boise; Idaho, charged with complicity  in the murder of ex-Gov. Frank  Steunenberg, of Idaho, and since they  were lawlessly arrested -and kidnaped  from Colorado.and literally railroaded  into Idaho, the press has been filled  with stories of- a self-confessed rnur-.-  derer, one Orchard, who himself>stands  in the shadow of the gallows.  There are a number of circumstances, however, that should be borne  in mind in this case. In the first  place, the men were first -taken in  Colorado without process of law, and  denied the privilege of the writ of  habeas corpus���and this by those who  pose as law abiding citizens of the great  republic. Two of them, at least, were  arrested and ��� jailed two years ago  charged with similar crimes, being finally discharged with not a scintilla of  evidence against them. The detective  McPartland, who is working up the  case against them, is said to have several murders to his own credit. Gov.  Gooding, of Idaho, who professes to  be willing to give them a fair trial, has  said that he believes them guilty, and  to the extent that this statement has  been spread broadcast, has endeavored  to prejudice the case against them.  The men have everything to lose and  nothing to gain, from the standpoint of  the laboringmant.by being connected  with such diabolical plots as alleged.  The newspapers ��� have been filled with  one confession after another, until one  begins to think that Orchard and others  do confess too much-���these would-be  state's witnesses.

It is claimed that they will be given  a fair  and unprejudiced   trial,   which  will take   place  about   the middle of  May, but when  the foregoing facts are  all remembered, and the efforts to prejudice public opinion in advance of the  trial are brought to mind,   faiiminded  men  cannot   but wonder whether the  trial will be all that is claimed  for  it.

There has been a revival in mining  in Ymir district, and many properties  are arranging for a season of activity.  In March S 1,000 tons of coal and  25,451 tons of coke were produced in  the Crow's Nest collieries. The former is a new record.  The   Crow's   Nest   Pass   Coal   Co.  I paid a dividend of $87,500 last week  and has paid $1,400,000 in dividends  -  since its inception.  The wages of the muckers in thr  Rossland mines'have been raised from  $2 50 to $2.75 a day. This was done  voluntarily by the mineowncrs.  The Arlington mine at Ymir, has  shipped fifteen carloads of ore since  the first of January, the values averaging $50 per ton. The mine is employing thirty   men.  For the first quarter of 1906 the  Canadian Merals Company report that  upwards of 3,500 tons of lead and zinc  ores have been s&nt to the planis .11  Pilot Bay and at Frank.  The output of the St. Eugene mine  for March was 2712 tons. The mine  payroll amounted to $31,000 for th<  month, or $icoo per day. There are  about 3ro men at work and the average wage per man is $ioo.  It is reported that the Second Relief mine, near Brie, is cleaning up  $3,000 per month besides the concentrates, and that the eastern capitalists  have agreed to take up the bond before the time agreed upon. The property is working about thirty men.  The Consolidated Mining and  Smelting company, owning the St. Eugene, War Eagle and Centre.

LEAD SMELTER FOR GRANBY  . j    Spokane Paper  Thinks   It   Pari   of   Exlen-  ilve Plan.  As is well known touhe mining men  of the Coeur d'Alenes. the Hunter  mine at Mullan has recently undergone  ainost thorough examination by W.  Y. Williams, consulting mining engineer of the Granby company, which  owns and operates great copper mines  at Phoenix and a mammoth copper  smelter at Grand Forks, B.C., says the  Spokane Chronicle; It is now understood in quarters usually well informed  tha't-Mr. Williams' report is so favorable that the option which his company  holdfron the Hunter is certain to be  exercised. While the price has not  been made public, it is understood  that it is in the neighborhood of $500,-  000, says the Idaho Press.  The Granby people have not hitherto been in the market for lead properties, but it is said this new departure  is due to the fact that they have recently acquired some very large deposits of dry ore and found that it was  necessary to have a lead smelter to  work them. The smelter will probably  be located at Kettle Falls, Wash.,  where they recently purchased one of  the greatest water powers in the west  Rheumatism Make* Life Miserable.

Uoth these companies, however,  have been developing their mines and  are now prepared to extend their  smelling operations. The llritish Columbia Co has ordered a smelter and  convener equipment capable of treat-  jn�� 1S00 Ions of ore per day while the  Dominion Copper Co. is reported to  he preparing to lake action whereby it  will build a smelter with a capacity of  2 500 to 3000 tons per day or as large  a plant as that of the Granby Co.  Both the Dominion Copper and  ��� the Uritish Columbia Co.'s mines have  ore in sight lo permit of such a tonnage  while the railroad facilities in the  lioiindary are now adequate to handle  an unlimited tonnage.  Prominent interests are now identified wall both of these companies.  Colgate Hoyt, Edwin Hawley, E. D.  Underwood and Col. John Weir have  large financial holdings in the British  Columbia Copper Co., while Samuel  Newhoiisc, Samuel Untermeyer, and  Sen. Wmiier Miller have large financial  interest' in the Dominion Copper Co.  The success of the Granby Co. in  profitably treating the Boundary district lean ores which average to return  that company but 26 pounds of copper  per ton of rock, with small gold and  silver value-:, is responsible for the enlarged operations by the British Columbia and the Dominion companies  Ail of these companies have an apparently unlimited ore supply which can  he mined ai remarkably low costs,  largely by quarrying operations.���Boston News Bureau.
