A dispatch from Fernie to the Rossland and Nelson dailies last Wednesday night, in regard to the strike situation among the coal miners of East  Kootenay, reads as follows :  "Fernie, B.C., July^o.-^-The miners  at Michel nil quit work this moi ning,  and  it is expected that the Morrisey  men  will also go  out  tonight.    The  men at Michil went out at the request  of the Western Federation of Miners."  From this it would appear 'hat the  supply of coke for.the Boundary and  Kootenay smellers is now cut off, and  that, if the difficulty with  the miners  in East Kootenay is not soon settled-,  the few mines still being operated will  be forced to shut down.    Of late the  coke being shipped-fiom East Koote  nay has been going to the Trail and  Granby smelters, and-those, concerns  have been woiking at.partial capacity.  It is now reported' that the Northpori  Smelter has already blown out,, on account of lack  of coke, and the Trail  smelter will do likewise soon.  Situation at (be Cranky.  Manager Graves,, of the Granby  smelter, informed the Pioneer yester-|  day that nothing of "the Michel strike  was known further than what is contained in the newspapers. On the  contrary, the "small shipments of coke  -vere still continuing to come in,-and  die last advices were that it is  being shipped as usual".  The Granby smelter now has a sup  ply of coke on hand sufficient to last  about ten days for the three furnaces  that are being operated. If the pres  ent receipts are shut off, the works  will be forced to close for the .time  being. y  Coke Supply Still Available.  J. E. Mills returned from a trip to  Fernie last Saturday, and states that  then there was still probably about  1,500 tons of coke in the ovens at that  town which had not been drawn, the  men at the ovens there not striking  till last week. At-'the Michel ovens  there is probably nearly half as much  more, making a total of some 2,000  tons that cancel be used if shipped.  Mr. Mills also talked with a good  many peoole in Fernie, and states that  there are yet 19 bodies in the Fernie  coal mines, and that the management  absolutely refuses to allow, volunteers  to get them out. With 128 that have  been buried, this makes a total of 147  victims of that terrible colliery disaster  Bit Copper,' la Copper Camp, Has a Bit  Sbawlaf.  John  Moran and- tJeorge B.  Mc-  Aulay are th�� owners of the Big Copper claim, in Cop|iei camp, adjoining  the  King Solomop,'owned by D. C.  Corbin, the latter-having shipj>ed over  800 tons of high  grade eppper ore.  The property is abouf six,miles from  Greenwood, and a few men jja've'lately  been developing ft with the best results.    Mayor Rumberger visited the  property a few day�� agfr, "and thinks it  will prove in time to'be a good mine.  An open cut  12 feet wide has  been  run into the hill, which now has a face  of some 35 feet, all in solid ore of an  excellent quality.    It it the intention  of the owners, as aoori^as the needed  arrangements can be made, to ship a  thpusand tons of the ore to the local  smelters.   A wagon road to the property, from the main wagon road in that  section, is now being completed.  Six years ago the aitn interested in  ABOUT OUR  HOSPITAL  The Result of Two Months  Work.

I  A project is now being actively agitated in some quarters, which if successfully carried through, will resulf in  the building of anotherrailway in the  Houndary. The specific object is the  building of a tramway to connect the  cities of Phoenix and Greenwood, to  be operated by. electricity, now that  the Cascade Water, Power- and Light  Co. has its power lines to Phoenix  nearly ready to deliver electrical energy.  The matter is being taken up by the  One of the institutions of which not  a great deal is heard, but which, nevertheless, is doing the best of work, is  the Phoenix General Hospital. Knowing that it has been open now for several weeks, 3 Pioneer man visited the  hospital Wednesday, and was shown  through the well appointed building  by the'matron, Miss F. Wallace Johnston, and given some information as to  what the institution has done thus far,  and wha't its needs are.  As is known in Phoeim, but perhaps not-so well known on the outside,  the plans for the Phoenix General  Hospital were especially drawn for  this particular building. Thus'the  structure is practically adapted for the  pur|X>se intended, and is, therefore,  thoioughly up to date in this respect.  But one wing Has been built as yet,  the central building and east wing to  be erected when the need arises,' being  provided for in the plans. Tin walls  are very high in the hospital, with extra  large windows, making it light and airy  at all times. In the main ward are  ten beds, and besides that there  two private wards.  What Has Been Done.  Since the hospital was opened, about  two months ago, there have been alto  gether 20 patients admitted���most of  them contract patients from the mines  through local physicians. It speaks  well for the hospital management and  nursing that thus far there have been  no fatalities in the institution, although  some of the cases were exceedingly  severe, and in one or two cases the  patients were almost given up.  At present there are six patients,  one of which! is a woman, and all of  them are convalescing in the best possible shape. The men there now are  Frank   Sharp,  John   Lewis,   William  are  Last Sunday afternoon the private  'cais Champlain and 'Metapedia, .'containing a large party'rff C. P.

Supt. Williams showed  diem over the mines, and also where  he wished some new tracks pui in for  the accommodation of the Granby  mines, which will probably be done.  Among those in the party were:  I). McNichol, vice president arid  genet al manager; Robert Kerr, passenger traffic manager; C. H. McHenry,  chief engineei; R.

POST "OFFICE STORE  Expect To Haul 300 Tons of Ore Dally lo tbe  Oraoby Smeller.  Traffic between Grand Forks and  Republic over the Kettle Valley Lines  was resumed Wednesday. The bridge  across the Kettle river, one'mile below  Curlew, Washington, was completed  Tuesday. The structure, which was  partially damaged during the spring  floods, has been practically rebuilt and  new piers laid. The roadbed is also  being put in excellent condition. A  gang of 90 men, distributed along the  route, is adding the finishing touches  to the surfacing work. ,  The grading of the spurs into the San  Poil, Lone Pine, Mountain Lion and  Black Tail mines has been finished,  and the grade to the Quilp will fie''finished this week. A delay of a fortnight may occur before the rails are  laid into these properties, as the steel  has not arrived.  The management of the Kettle Valley Lines has assurances that the carap  will contribute to the railway an initial  tonnage of 300 tons daily as soon as  the rails are laid into the ore bins. Thi;  ore will be treated at the Granby smelter, the freight and treatment rate being  $6.50 per ton. Any surplus of ore  tnat cannot be treated here will be ship  ped to the smelters at Greenwood and  Boundary Falls, the rate.quoted by the  Kettle Valley and.C. P. R\ for such  shipments being.very favorable.  body is looking into.the probable cost  of the line and the equipment. The  line would be e.'ght or ten miles long,  togetthe-required gradient,, although  the distance between ;the twoiplacesby  wagon road is but five-miles. It is  antiicpated that the line will costiri  neighborhood -of '$106,000, arid uhe  city of. Greenwood proposes to issue  debentures for that amount, on which  that city will guarantee five per cent  interest, the holder to also have a first  mortgage on the tramway and its equipment, '.-,, ������  There are a good many difficulties  in the way of the successful consummation of the plan, but the Greenwood  people are in earnest about it, and believe that a way can be found to finance it. >  Primarily the road would be intended to carry ore to the smelters in the  Boundary Creek valley, and there is  undoubtedly plenty of ore in this camp  to be so hauled, without ..in. the least  lessening the large, amount .which is  now going out. . The passenger traffic  also would be no inconsiderable item,  although it would not probably support  such a road at first.  A conversation with those who have  been in the hospital for  care  shows  that, one and all, they are high in their  praises of the manner in   which   it  is  conducted, both on  the  part  of the  physicians attending and   the   nurses  who have-been'employed.   As nursing  is half fhe battle in serious illness, this  reflects no small amount of credit  on  Miss Johnson, the matron.  The Present Staff.  The present sraffat the hospital consists of three persons,   Miss Johnston,  the matron,  Mrs. Newlands, and Miss  Fraser.    Miss Johnson has had a extended and varied experience   in  hospitals, being a graduate of a well known  London, England, institution, and also  a graduate of the the  Royal   Victoria  hospital at   Victoria,  B.  C.    She  is,  therefore, peculiarly well fitted for her  duties.     Mrs.   Newlands   and   Miss  Fraser have also had large  experience  in hospitals, so the  Phoenix   hospital  has the best to be had in this line.  The foundations for the building  for the Cascride power sub-station in  Phoenix, have been laid.  The Jewel mine, having completed  its 2,coo ton contract with the Granby  sme'ter, has discontinued shipments.  - --.The Lueile Dieyfus mine,-near Nelson, Wash., will shortly resume ore  shipments to the Granby smelter at  Giand Forks.  A. J. McMillan, managing director  of the Snowshoe mine, came over from  kosslaud last Saturday, leturning this  week Thursday.  I'he Gianby smelter has been running three furnaces of late, the shipments from the mine averaging r,ooo  tons of ore daily.    .  In a few days the No. 2 tunnel of  the Granby mines will be completed���  that is the two gangs of miners, working towards each other, will break  through.  Porter Bros, now have 25 or 30  men at work on their, stripping contract, and may put up two more towers  next week, to do some stripping on the  top of the hill, above where they .ire  now working.  It is stated that Harry Stevens, of  Kosslaud, has bonded the McKinley  claim, in Franklin camp, to outside  capitalists. The owneis are Jim Wilch-  er and.A. McKinley, the assays on the  propei ty running from seven to 21 per  cent in copper.  It is reported on the authority of R.  H. Parkinson, who owns the townsite  of Hedley City, that the Standard Oil  syndicate, who are operating the Nickel Plate mine near Camp Hedley, will  shortly erect a stamp mill to treat the  product of the mine.  A dispatch from Spokane last Tuesday states that county attorney M. A.'  Jesseph, of Ferry county, acting on  behalf of the state, started suit at Republic that day to confiscate all the  property of the Kettle Valley Lines in  Washington, on the charge^that a majority of the stock is owned by aliens.  There' are about 40 miles of road'in  Washington, and, with the equipment,  it:has cost nearly $750,000.  ��� The money was put up -by Eastern  Canadians, and the only American  actually in the deal was VV. C. Morris,  a lawyer of Republic. He claims a  sixth interest in the road, and is now  suing for recovery. In his complaint  he alleges that' he has held practically  one-third of the stock in interest in  addition to his own sixth. Three  other Americans are holders of a share  each, so that a majority of the stock  is nominally held by Americans, and  four out of seven trustees are citizens  of that country. Morris, however, alleges that except for his sixth interest  the ownership of all the other stock  apparently held by Americans is merely  a subterfuge to evade the constitution  of the state.  The constitution provides that a  majority of the stock in corporations  holding property in the state must be  held by Americans." Acting on Morris'  charge, Prosecuting Attorney Jesseph  has started suit.' It is the first of its'  kind ever brought under a state law '  and is of tremendous interest.  There are various corporations in  that country, among them the Noith-  port Smelting & Refining Company,  in which practically all of the stockis  owned'by aliens. If the state winsan'd-  confiscates the Kettle Valley road, it''���  would apparently pave the way to the  confiscation of the Northport smelter  under the same law.  LEROI SUPERINTENDENT KILLED.  . Storm Cost About $5,089.  H. W. Kent, of Vancouver, general  manager of the Vernon and Nelson  Telephone and Telegraph Co., was a  visitor in the city Wednesday, on one  of his trips of inspection of the company's1 lines, accompanied by George  C. Hodge, of Nelson, district manager.'  Mr. Kent asserts that on account of  the general depression:<in .business in  the province, the income' of thecom-  pany has been much reduced in the  last few months, but.that collections in  Phoenix average up better than any  other town in the interior. The heavy  wind storm of two weeks ago which so  badly disarranged the lines of the com:  pany, cost the company about $5,000.  Ihe Columbia line, which is under  lease to the V. & N. Co., is in the  worst possible shape between Greenwood and  Grand Forks, but  will be  Mt .tip again stance,    Need* ol tbe Hospital  Although the hospital is in  running  order, and has already been productive  of much good in the community, and  its existence has undoubtedly been the  cause of saving  more  than  one  life,  there are yet many needs to the equiu-  ment to render it being capable of being put to  the  best  possible service.  The operating room, while in use when  wanted, has not yet been fitted up, and  here some money' could  be  spent  to  the best possible advantage.   Bed linen  ���is also one of the needs, among others.  Financing the  hospital  is  no  easy  matter, as the managers and Secretary  ��� Hemenway have found out,  but  it  is  relieved lhat  when  the   residents  of  Phoenix realize what a  boon   to  the  community  the  institution is, efforts  will be made to put the institution   in  better shape.    In all Canada there  is  scarcely a hospital not in private hands,  that is self supporting.    Nearly all  of  them receive gifts or bequests and art  thus enabled, to carry on their excellent  work.    A. C.-Flumerfelt, the president  It is reported that the Montreal and  Boston Copper Co.'s smelter at Boundary Falls will have an additional furnace put in at once, thereby increasing  the capacity of the plant to 500 tons  daily. The new furnace will measure  40x176 inrhes in size, and will be of  standard wafer jacket constiuciion.  The siiieltei is repotted to have been  running satisfactorily, and making a  little money.  Louis A. Duokle Met Death at tbe 600 Foot  :���'�� Level.  .'<���'.." ....  Eafly last Sunday morning Louis A.  Dunkle, superintendent of the LeRoi  mine, at Rossland,,was killed by a slide  of rock in the 600 foot level of that  property. The probability of a slide  had been reported to him earlier in  the evening, and he went down to the  dangerous spot to examine it. He decided to put in a few shots and fill up  the dangerous place with waste. They  did not go off, and iiif examining die  place a second time the slide occurred,  completely burying the unfortunate  superintendent and two miners, Dan  Gunn and W. L. McDonald. The  latter were rescued with difficulty after  several hours' work, and fortunately  were not seriously hurt, but when  Dunkle's body was discovered, it was  found that death had probably been  instantaneous, as it was covered with  thousands of tons of limbers and debris.  Mr Dunkle, who cSme to Rossland  in November, 1901, leaves a wife and  four children to survive him.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

'Some three years ago the business  men of Greenwood, when Phoenix began to assume important proportions,  believed that their commercial salva-  , tion lay in the construction of a tramway between the two places. Accordingly, a provision was made in the  electric light franchise requiring the  lirbmotors of that, enterprise to build  the tramway within a ceitain period,  and to post a forfeit of $5,000 to carry  out the agreement.  , ��� But the tramway was a big proposition, and when hard times came it was  no easy manner to raise the $100,000  required for constiuction purposes.  Then the Greenwood city council,  " hoping against hope, extended the  time limit. Surveyors were put in the  field, and some work was done, but  the funds were not forthcoming,-and  the project was allowed to die a natural death, the city of Greenwood being the richer by the $5,000 which  had been posted as a forfeit.  Once again, however, the idea  is  being brought  forward  by our friends  in Greenwood, and this time it is proposed to have it  built as a municipal  undertaking.     Evidently  the  Greenwood aldermen   think  that  the  little  matter of financing the $100,000 or  thereabouts needed to build and equip  the tramway, can  be  leadily  accomplished.    We,ho|�� so, at any i.ue.  , There would  be many benefits to  accrueto Phoenix  fiom such a load.  Primarily-it would probably be intended tp haul ores from this camp to the  sipejt.er�� in  the valley, and this means  A large increase id the number of men  ajmployed in and around l'hoenix 10  jnintythe ore���of which lheie is sufficient here to supply all the smeltus in  the' Boundary for the next generation.  But there are other advantages of  a-tramway.   For'instance,  when the  good people of Greenwood are sweltering under 100 degrees in the shade,  they might jump on an electric cat and  in a short time be enjoying the cool  breezes of Phoenix.    Oi,  when   the  . thermometer is hovering away below  ; -��8ro in the Boundary, Creek valley, a  'Mip to the more equable climate of  \he place where the mines ate would  6$ an^agreeable change.  ���'/'he Pioneer hopes the tramway will  be" Igljlt, as we cannot  have too many  ed to be composed of etery  sh.ide  of  political belief.  For a time, after the Kamloons con  vention, which certainly uas quite rep  lesentaiive as far as labor is concerned,  there were a number of branches ol  the new paity oiganizcd thioughout  this section, but in a number of cases,  the effort to oiganize ended in failure,  Phoenix being said to be one of these  in point  It <\as noted at the time that the  piogrefsives in ihe comeniion did noi  get ever} thing in the platform lhat was  desired at Kamloops. On the othei  hand the more conservative of the delegates thought it was sufficiency progressive for the present, and would an.  sner very well to go into a political  campaign with.  If the laboring people expect to win  anything a't the ballot bov,   it   will   be  needlul (or ilxem to first agree  among  themseheson the relomis they wish to  accomplish, and the best   methods of  doing this.    Otherwise they will stand  hut little chance against the old paities,  all of which alu ay; have many suppoit  eis in laboi's ranks.     Many socialists  who are sincere in their helki, do  not  endorse the Kani/oops party, and   will  not do so w hen  jt  cotnes  to election  day.    They  asseit  lhat  that  is   not  socialism, pure and simple, but a mature that is none too good at best.    It  remains to be seen   whether  the  ��en  paity will after all cut much of a figure  at the next provincial election.

STRICTLY   BUSINESS  EDITORIAL COMMENT  Only about tcii men are reported as  being in the.Horsefly district, tfie predicted boom having utterly failed to  materialize.  Not a thinj> is being done by the  government for men totally disabled in  the mines of the province. Could'the  minister of mines take up a subject  that is more worthy of attention?  Since being bested by Jeffries last  week, Fiusimmons, the prize fighter,  sa>s he has had enough and will re-  tiri from the prize ring. That is more  seiibe than he has been given credit  for.  Phoenix decided to reduce the fiuit  and vegetable vendois' license fee to a  reasonable figure. Greenwood proposes to keep it up to the old notch  of $250 loi six months. Evidently,  wise men are prone to disagree.  As compared with the previous year,  the output of copper in British Columbia lor 1901 was 175 per cent  more. The )ear of 1902 should show  a Mill further substantial increase in  the pipduction of the brown metal.  Commun sense and good adveilising  travel in the same coach.  It is easy to make a good business  better byjudi.iously advertising jt.  The man who cannot' increase his  business with advertising is either a  mighty poor business man or a poorer  advertisei. '  Oi what use is it to have goods for  sale and not tell us? You may shrink  from publicity, but your goods cry  aloud for it.  Till advertised in some sort your  goods are not really placed upon the  market. Yet some merchants still look  upon ad vet rising as so much sheet  waste.  Que can never tel/ how far a good  deed or a good advertisement will  navel, Each one goes on working lor  you long after it lias dropped out ol  your mind.  One man cuts little figure in this  world unless backed by the influence  of many otheis���npither will one little  advertisement accomplish much unless  reinforced by otheis.  R. B. KERR,  .

The product of copper and coal are of unusual  interest to the Boundary, and we give  the figures herewith:,.  .:������."���. Copper Production.  Each year seems to present some  particular features of interest, and this  year it is the great increase fo copper  production of the province. The copper production for the year has been  27,603,746 iJounds' of '"fine copper,"  valued at $4,446,963, an increase of  17,606,666 pounds, and $2,831,674  over that of the previous year, or about  175 per cent, increase in value.  It may be here noted that the recent  'break" in the copper market did not  occur until the last month in the year,  and as, in estimating the values as  above, the average price for the year is  employed, the value of the product has  not been seriously "affected.  'I'llis copper has been derived as follows:  15 mndiirv district...... 14.511,787 lbs.  Trail (Rostand) district     8,333,446   " ..'

This  low  possible cost of the first smelting, now  proven, has a wide effect on the future  of the district and province, a.s it brings,  within the limit of profitable ores many  known deposits of great extent  which  it has been previously regarded as impossible to profitably treat.
