Tlw: announcement  'hruiigli a phone message t" llii:  Pioneer from 3 ipi-rintrndi nl Ilic-sel at  Rossland, that the S-i<>w��hoe mini.-  would shortly resume opcr.!'ions, after  a close down of nine 'months, has been  the occassion for good ieeling .in  business circles, and it is generally  believed that the last of ihe b'g mines  nn the shipping' list mean�� the final  clinching of, renewed good fortunes  in camp.  Walter H. Aldridge, managing director of the Consolidated company, at  Trail, was called up by long distance  phone .yesterday afternoon. To the  Pioneer he stated.that operations would  commence at the Snowshoe and War  Engle groups between August 10th and  15'ih, and that from 150,(0 200 men  would bo employed     The.ores from  ir!y this wt-el-, f ment last year, andthe property when  it resumes should,be able to maintain  a heavier output than iv<-?. In addition to the expensive woi Icings under  ground, reached by a well equipped  350 foot shaft and the main working  lunnel, a large area ipf glory hole work  was opened up, giving many thousands  of tons additional ore yet available.  AH the mine machinery is electrically  operated. Q  The mine was first prorhinen'Jy before the eye of the public> through the  connection with it of S. yVVaterlow, of  London, the famous Jhead of the  famous paper-making concern which  had interested itself in the Kootenay  as a-place where its extra capital mi^ht  well be invested,       J. ���.'*??

Fresh Ftuit and Vegetables Arriving Daily  company's big smelter at Trail, where!  another copper-goid furnace wil! rrquire  to be blown in.  Charles Beisel, who has been in  Rossland lor some time acting as  purchasing acent for the Consolidated,  will arrive in camp early next week  to resume the supeiintendency of the  Snowshoe, and will immediately commence employing men.  The Snowshoe was one of ihe important copper producers here last year,  operated under lease by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting .company  ��� ���f Canada, limited, one of the largest  and most progressive mining companies  in British Columbia, operating extensively at Rossland, Trail and Movie.'  An aegreSMve campamn was carried on  at the Snowshoe group (including the  Pheasant, Alma fraction and Fair Play  mineral claims), the ore shipments for  the nine months previous to closing  down being 135,00010ns. Thousands  were spent in development and equip-  pany at Greenwood or to the company's smelter at Trail, about 120 miles  distant. The shipments on resuming  will be to Trail smelter, where the ores,  are a good flux The only ore shipped  j since the   Close   down   Novernjbpr    18,  ! 1907, was 367   tons  from   the  camp  ! during February to Trail.  I     The Consolidated company last year  I purchased  outright the assets   of  the  j Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines,  I Limited,  which owns a dozen claims  south of and adjoining ihe Granby, the  nucleus of which   is   ihe War   Eagle  ^roup.     In addition options  were ob  tained on some score of other mineral  claims in the camp near   or  adjoining  the present holdings 01  the   company,  ihus giving the Consolidated company  an extensive acreage in Phoenix.  At the time of the close-down a new  Rand 1 a-drill compressor was being  installed at the War Eagle to replace  the steam plant. The work of installing will be completed when the mine  resumes.  Electricians are now busy connecting up the transformersat-lhe new sub  station at the Mother Lode mine.  Shipments from the new strike at  ihe Brooklyn have averaged nearly  200 tuns per day during the past week.  Only about a' dozen nit-ri are now  working at; the Sunset. The, Dominion Copper, smelter has been receiving  too much of the Sunset,flux.  Dominion Copper stock is now  quoted at $2.25 and Ins been a good  investment to those who got in on the  ground floor a few weeks ugo at $1.68.  Manager Rossa of the Dominion  Copper company was at Fernie for a  few days this week arranging for the  smelter fuel supply which has been  been somewhat uncertain of late.  The B.C. Copper company's smelter  treated 13,696 ions of ore this week as  follows; Molhcr'Lode, 9,76a tons; Oro  Denoro, 36,210; other properties 313.  The Dominion Copper smelter treatment ilus week was 3,096 tons, as  follows: Brooklyn, 736 tons; Rawhide,  1,793; Sunsel, 515; Mountain Rose 52.  The tunnel at the VVoodburn property of the Phoenix Mining, Smelting  and Development company, is now in  a distance of ��0 teei, and the indications of ore are very satisfactory.  Exploratory work on'the Montezuma  claim of the Dominion Copper is pro  ving  very   encouraging,   according   to  Superintendent   Kundberg,   who   ex  pects it will be a shipper within a few.  months.  Four cars of.ore were shipped from  the Athelstan this week, and a test  will be made of the ore at the Dominion Copper smelter before further ship  ments will be made. The' ore was  teamed to the C. P. R. at the Winnipeg by J. McArthur of Greenwood.  K. P. Williams of Rossland, western  representative of the Canadian Rand  company, and H. V. Haight, head  designer for the company at Sherbrooke, Quebec, were in town for a ftw  days this week, installing new and improved in-take valves at the Dominion  "Copper compressor, .y^-y;,������,c._,ly,;^,  The directors of the Skylark  Devel  opment   company,     limited,   held:  a  meeting in town on Tuesday evening.  No   information   has   been given   out  for publication,  but   it   is  understood  me probabilities of resuming operation  at the Skylark  mine   were cunouvivj..  The B. C. Copper  shortly erect a new  their Mother Lode  tank will have a capacity of 35,000  gallons, which with the present 15,000-  gallon reservoir and pumps should give  the mine an ample supply of water  with excellent pressure.  company will  reservoir tank at  mine.    The   new  HIGHWAY MEN  HOLD UP HOTEL  Vendome    Hotel,    Anaconda,  Held up Saturday Night  Anaconda, near Greenwood, has a  new line.of,excitement this week. -The  ���Vendoine hotel was the scene of a  daring, hold-up about 11,30 Saturday  night. J. W. O'Brien, the proprietor  and five men were silting in a room  adjoining the--bar-when two heavily  [masked men entered from a side  [door, and covering the occupants  of the room with big persuasive six-  shooters commanded them to throw up  their h.inds and line up face to the  wall. Introducing some variety specialties in ihe hold-up bussmess the  plunderers operated with systematic  coolness, requiring thr* men to step  hack from ihe line individually while  iheir pockets where searched by one  of the robbers, his pall holding the  guns wilhmuzzels gaping at the quintette ol nerve stricken victims.\O11ly  cash was taken, watches or other identifying valuables were' not wanted.  The nextact in the performance was  ihe. riffling of the bar. cash register and  a general search of the drawers, after  which the highway men scampered, off  to the mountains with about $150 in  cash. The brigands operated with  experlness, making a clean, expeditious  job of it without causing alarm, and  decamped without leaving the slightest  clue as to their identity or revendez  vous. Thisiis ihe firait holdup in the  history of the, Boundary.  On Tuesday night- a robbery occurred at Boundary Falls when J. Haver-  son's cabin was ransacked while the  owner was within a few yards of it.  Nothing valuable was secured, however.  The house of Robert Dempster, Anaconda, was also entered by thieves  this week.  Boundary Side Lights  j T. C. Smith has left   Greenwood   to  riside in Vancouver.  . Greenwood tennis experts are in the  midst ol a tournament this  week.  Faust Is Coming  It will be welcome news to many  theatre goers in the city, the announcement that the famous play of Goethe's  immortal "Faust" will be presented at  Phoenix opera house on Tuesday  Aug. 11 th, by the Porter J; White Co.  No play written in many years has retained such a hold on the hearts, of  ;thi;- publVc.-'. It'has'' proved" to "be" "far  better than the book, for while - the  play has steadily held its popularity,  the book is almost forgotten. It*was"  revived in New York City last spring  and actually drew larger audience than  it did at the presentation of the  prouuctions    years���-ami   v~_���.. ~gu.  This great play will continue to entertain as long as we have laughter  to reward wit, tears for the sorrowful,  and sympathy for the fallen. It is  still as fresh as the newly minted coin  and has the fizz of the sparkling  champagne.  PHOENICIANS AT RSHING  Speckled  weath  of   our  Morrin, Thompson & Co.,  Grocers and  Hardware  Merchants.  Kellle   River   Prospected   fur   the  Beauty Pav Streak.  The recent rains and the coc  er following gave a number  citizens the idea that they were sportsmen of the "dreadnot type" and several parties outfitted nnd hied to tlie  lamed waters of the Kettle river al  and around U'esthridue, with a desire  to show the people lhat they were it  when it came to luring the unsuspecting Irout to the fly. Most of these  parties have returned willi catches  varying from bad to worse.  The writer was one of a party who  left the city at midnight on Saturday,  inking a full complement of all the  latest in fishing tackV, and a supply  of refreshments lhat seemed almost  inexhaustable. When we were not  driving between that time and 5.30  a. 111. we were stopped for refreshments or running behind the rig to  keep warm. About 5.30 a. m. how  ever, we arrived at a point on the  river just beyond Rock Creek, where  we camped and did some fishing, had  breakfast, refreshments, etc., and although we thoroughly prospected the  river and found evidences of fish, we  were unable to lecate ihe pay-streak,  and moved on to a place near West-  bridge where we again tried to induce  the members of the finny tribe to r:se  to our luring bait, but without much  success. We then continued our  journey to Westbridge, wher-j we found  Alex McRae, Ralph (Jilbert and Joe  l-'erner, camped. Their success  apparently not great at this  they offered to buy our  would not sell of course.   When we  were   still   in   hopes   of  who would  sell   their  was  time   for  catch,   which  we  left them  we  finding someon  fish.    We drove on   about  ball a mile  further   to   tlie   hotel   at   Westbridge,  which    we   found   t.->   be   a   veritable  "oasis in   the desert.",    Here we  were  taken in by Mr. Blooirifield and   were  given one of  the  tastiest dinners   we  had enjoyed for a long time, and the  way we showed those people we were  not bashlul was not poor. One of the  party remarked that there was no time  when a good dinner tasted as good as  when one is good and hungry. Tired,  hungry and disgusted as we were when  we arrived at Westbridge, when we got  up from that dinner we kn -w we could  catch fish, and those who were able, so  soon after the meil, made their way to  the river again, where the editor ac:  tually cauglu a fish, and incidentally  told all the parly Hie proper method of  casting, and more especially the way to  land them after hooking them. This  with one oilier catch by the Wm.  Hunter Co., satisfied us that we were  fishermen of nole, and *ve proceeded  on our way home, ihe Scotchman  (doctor) being weighted down with ihe  credit of ihe entire catch. But the  city cl~rk did not return without feme.  Scrambling along the mountain side to  get in close range with a ground hog,  near Midway, several holes were punctured in the air with rifle bullets, after  which the animal blinked the other eye  and was gone.  About the time we were ready  to leave we beard that Birnie and  C.ipt. Smith had been there that  miTiiinsj but had gone to Lynch Creek,  where they heatd an Indian 1 ad fish to  sell. Macy, McNicol and Boyles had  found a market for their catch when  we left. The trip home was one to be  remembered, for although all the party  were tired we all enj >yed the outing in  .1 country where we had not been be  fore and which we think is one of ihe  prettiest valleys we have seen.  Ranches in all their stages from the  small clearing to the well improved,  up to date farm with orchards, fields  of grain, crops of roots hard to beat,  and immense crops of hay all go to  show the possibilities of this wonderful  valley, and made tbe fishermen leel  that while ihey had caught little except  a bad cold, their outing was not in  vain. Most of the party are now able  to be around.  0  0. 0.

Esws*  !<UNION  111111111  In the granting of the recent subsidies the Penticton Press sees the  imminent building of the C. P. R. extension from Midway.- The Press says  in part:���y :...���;���   ���; ���    '..  "Late word from Ottawa to the  effect that the Dominion Government  has seen fit to grant $30,000 for making navigable the Okanagan river between this place and Dog Lake is  welcome news to the residents of Penticton, and an evidence that the member for Yale-Cariboo is alive to the  claims of this important section of his  constituency.  A proceeding vastly more significant  however, was the granting of a subsidy  of $3,200 a mile to the Canadian  Pacific railway company for a line  from Nicola to Penticton, a distance  estimated at roo miles, and for a line  from Carmi to Penticton, estimated at  50 miles.  The full meaning of this move may  not be readily apparent to those unfamiliar with the railway situation in  southern British Columbia.  It must not be imagined   that   the  f south have been abandoned in  favor  of the route via Penticton.  On account of the lower grades obtained through the southern part of  the province as compared with the C.  P. R. Main line, it is likely before a  great time that this will become the  main traffic and passenger line.  The fact that no subsidy was grant-  . ed from Midway  to   Carmi"' indicates  that the C. P. R. has taken  over  the  Mid way-Vernon charter, which carries  Dominion   and   Provincial   subsidies  amounting to $10,400 a mile.. Instead  ; of going through to Vernon, however,  : the C. P. R. will build only about   60  miles of the proposed Midway-Vernon  line.  A glance at the country the road  will pass through should not be with  out interest at this time.  Leaving Midway, the line will follow  the main Kettle River to where the  West Fork comes in, and will then  follow the latter to a few miles above  Carmi at the junction of Wilkinson  creek with the West Fork. It will  afford- transportation to a considerable  culties as there is a drop of 3,750 feet  in a distance, by the trail, of about 12  miles.  On the other end the line will leave  Nicola, the present terminus, and follow  the south shore of Nicola lake to Quil-  chena. Both at Nicola and Quilchina  are important coal fields.  The survey runs south up Quilchena  creek to Aspen Grove, a copper camp,  from which point a branch line will  likely go down Otter creek or One  Mile creek to tap the Princeton district.  From Aspen Grove the main line  will cross by the best obtainable grade  to the headquarters of One and Five  Mile creeks (tributaries of the Similkameen river) to the head of Trout creek,  which it will follow down to Okanagan  Lake.

Next month all the big copper , pro  ducers will again be busy, and Phoenix  is on the eve of a season  of minning  activrty without precedent  in  the existence of the camp.    Rapid  development is going to make  the  Boundary  copper camp    hum.    Each    of   the  companies resumed   with   the  copper  market at  rock    bottom.    Economy  and low operating costs are the head  lights  under  which   they  are   doing  business.    Although    the    Boundary  mines' shipments,have already reached  the hifch-water  mark  of last year, the  mines  are  only  shipping about two-  thirds    their    capacity.     Explorato y  work, however, has  been carried on  and  shipping   facilities   incieased   at  each, and should the pried of copper  go, up a few cents (and there is every  reason  to expect   it   will   shortly) the  Boundary   will   be   shipping  50,000  tons -weekly, employment will be given  many more men, the  companies   will  be  making  money, and  vigorous life  ��rill be restored.  building of this line  was in any way.;' f  dependent   on   the   securing of this  subsidy.    On the contrary  it is  possible that the   C.  P.   R.   wou'd  have  been at work ere  this  had  they  not  known that by waiting a short time the  people of Canada, through their representatives in the Dominion house, give  them a  substantial  bonus  for doing  something that they were compelled by-  stress of circumstances to do anyway.  Thus it is that, instead of a help, our  reprehensible subsidy system  has   become a positive clog on the wheels of  industrial development.  The granting of this bonus  then is  not significant   because   it guarantees  the building  of  this   connecting   link  between Nicola and   the  present  terminus of the Columbia & Western   at  Midway.    The threatened loss of their  Coast - Kootenay     business   through  Hill's competition makes the road an  imperative  necessity to the C. P. R.  The significance of the grant lies in  the fact that'll has compelled the C.P.  R to make public the route this connecting line will follow.    It means that  all alternative routes to the north   or  agricultural community scattered along  the main Kettle   River and   the West  Fork, besides opening up an important  mineral bearing section reaching from  below Beaverdell, the present centre of  the district, to Carmi camp, six miles  further   north   on   the   West   Fork.  These camps have showings  of gold,  copper and silver ores that deserve de  velopment, and, as a result  of railway  construction, will receive the attention  they merit.  The West Fork has  a  considerable  area  0/ bottom   lands   on   which   a  French colony  is   being settled.    AV  though the climate is not warm enough  for the delicate sub-tropicarfruits that  flourish   in   the  Okanagan, it   is  well  suited for most branches of agriculture.  From Carmi (26 miles from here by  trail) the railway will   follow the south  fork of Wilkinson creek and will cross  the divide on to Ellis creek at the elevation of 4,550  feet abor/e sea level.  The grade from Carmi, which is 2,600  feet above sea level, is an easy  one to  the summit and presents no serious obstacles.    The   descent   to   Okanagan  Lake presents greater engineering diffi-  Discusses    the     Greenwood-  Phoenix Tunnel Scheme.  VV. C: Thomas, who recently severed  his connection with the Dominion  Copper company, was interviewed  while on the coast en route to Salt  Lake City, his old home. "The low  prices of copper and the high wages  demanded by the men were the principal causes of the shutdown in Greenwood last fall," said Mr. Thomas.  "Mine owners were paying as high  wages as had been paid in Butte, and  when the price of copper dropped  something had to be done.  Since then all Ihe companies have  been making extensive improvement  for more expeditious and economic development, and have thus been able  to reduce the labor, cut down wages,  and put themselves in a position to  make a little money, so that the situation is now considerably improved.  No work has yet been done by the  Chicago company, which was formed  with the object of undertaking tunnelling operations between Greenwood  and Phoenix, though Dr. Peabody, of  Chicago/and "other mining experts  have been over the ground and pro  nounced the project a feasible one.  Greenwood has an elevation of 2,454  feet, and Phoenix of 4,677 feet. The  company intends to push a tunnel  through the four and. a half miles of  rock and earth separating the two  places in.order to discover whether the  high grade ore deposits, in the Phoenix  district go'd^)r^i,{ to-J any*, considerable  depth. Some'shafts,have already been  sunk from the surface and it is thought  from'.'indications-'>'.that veins bothypf  'silver, and lead go' down F6ir~qixiter��a.  distance andare-not merely shallow  deposits."     :  While unab'e to quote figures upon  the probable cost of the undertaking,  Mr. Thomas ventured the suggestion  that it might/average $60 a foot. This  would mean ah outlay of $316,800 a  mile, so that the whole job at that rate  of reckoning would cost at least a million dollars, r ;.���':'  "Of course if ho signs of ore were  met with after the tunnel had been  pushed some distance," commented  Mr. Thomas, "the enterprise would  probably be abandoned and all the  money embarked upon it would be  lost.    '.'���������'..���'  Of course if this tunnel scheme is  adopted and proves a success, it will  mean a great thing, for the people, of  Greenwood and Phoenix, as a large  field for employment will be opened,  both whilefthe constitution ol the tunnel is in progress and afterwards, when  the company will .require a ;large  number of men to-work their mines."  Although returning to his: home in  Utah, Mr. Thomas will keep in .touch  with affairs in British Columbia', as he  has several interests wrapped up in  this Province.
