MINER  IN PHOENIX  Granby President on Annual  Inspection Trip.  HAS GREAT CONFIDENC: IN OUK MINES  Snyt Mr. Hill Hail 00 Inimul In Ills Company��� Plans (or Incre is'iic (lie Influence  of Ihe Company���Much Pleased Wit** Hit*  Outlook.  II. S. C. Miner, piesident of the  Granby Consolidated .Mining, Smelting  and Power Co., Ltd., leached Phoenix  this week on his annual liip of inspection to tlie properties cf the company.  He   had  been  in G.and   hoiks  foi  several   days, but wis  unable 10 visn  tlie place where the mines are till last  Monday, when   he  w,i* accompanied  by Jay P. Graves,  gciiei.il   manage!,  and A. C, Flumerfe'i, assistant to the  managers of the company     William  Spiei, of the Eastern Townships Hank  of Grand Forks, a'ls > came up on the  same tiain. ^  Mr. Minei has extensive inteiests  in the east, being actively identified  with corporations i 1 ISoston, Montieal,  Granby, Quebec-, S'leibiooke, Quebec,  and othei places. I'he Granby mines  aie not the only oies that he is intei-  ested in, having b'en a shaieboldei in  some of the Lake copper mines in  Michigan-for a number of yeais.' So  British Columbia does not represent  his first successful' experience in a  mining way.  While in Pho?ni\ Mr. Miner went  ovei the mines of the Gianby company  thoioughly, to notf the piogiess since  his visit oi neaily .1 yeai ago. Since  that time a large amount of develop  ment work has been done by the company, in ptiisuance with the policy  outlined, and besides this, close to  300,000 tons of ore have also been  shipped since he was here last. The  Gianby piesident could not but be  pleased at the evidences of progress at  his compan)'s mines since he was last  in Plioenix.  About the Coke Situation,  In an interesting ta'lk with the Pio  neer representative, Mir Miner expressed satisfaction that the strike of  the coal miners at Fernie/was apparently at an end. The Gianby smelter  had been run for the last'three weeks,  when really it should have been closed,  but the ''officials had been hoping that  the supply of coke would shortly be  increased. As a matter of fact, the  coke that had lately been received was  of a very inferior quality,which had  materially increased the cost of smelt;  ing each ton of ore���something like  30 cents per ton.  This was caused ' by .the'coke, in-.|  stead of giving. 10 or 12 per cent ash,  as is customary, returning 17 and 23  ��� per ceht ash. It was evidently made  :of tailings or screenings, and was most  unsatisfactory to work with, for it reduced the amount of ore that could  he smelted each day in e.ich furnace,  'i'he smelter had almost gotten to  the point where it would have to suspend operations, as even this poor  quality of coke had stopped coming  late last week. It would piobably not  he long, however, before   tbe  smelter  and the largest ore crusher in British  Columbia'-'will-be"-'shipped from the,  makers "almost any day now, being  overdue, Undoubtedly the '"company  would increase its rate of output when  everything is ready for it.  Mr. Hill Has No Interest.  "Has James j. Hill any interest in  the Granby Co.?" asked the Pioueci  man. ���������  ,"  "Mr. Hill has no.interest whatevei  in tlie Granby Co.," said Mr. Minei.  "I would like to know whcie that stoi)  originated. When it fust came out in >  the Montieal papas, beingcopied from  some ol the western papeis, I had 20  men in my office in one day, asking  if ihe lepoit was true. Mi. Hill has  not acquired u minority interest, as  was icpoited, nor any other interest  Mi. Hill, however, when in Grand  K*>iks last Saturday night, went all  over the smeltei, and expressed much  surprise and satisfaction to see so com  plete a smelting and bessemerizitig  plant in the Boundary."

He  thought -this was due largely to' the  high expense of living here, which he  believed would have to come down in  tlie near future. A working man in  the;e,ist, getting $2 per day, could save  much more than a man in" British Columbia, getting $3 ni. $3-Sc per day.  Merchants.here in all lines wanted to  make too much , in a short time, and  asked abnormal profits. Everything  was too expensive, and the general  business man must be satisfied with  smaller profits;  "Why,"'said Mr. -Miner, warming up  to his subject, "when we are able to  make five per cent on Granby shares,  we will be'weir satisfied. There is  plenty of money in the east looking for  just such steady investments, with  moderate returns, but sure. The day  for big icturns is about over, and every  thing must come down to a legitimate  blew in again, and Mr. Miner expected | |)Usjness *)asjs.    You will see that this  that shortly thereafter four furnaces  would be operated. This closing of  the smeller might necessitate the stoppage of most of tbe work at the company's mines for a few days, but it  would not last long.  Have Produced Much Copper.  After the smelter had been operating  just  one year  the   Granby   Co. had  will cccur, too."  ��� The party drove down to Gieenwood  Tuesday night, and the next day returned.to Grand Forks.  the adding of the other 15 drills whenever they may be needed. The big  fly wheel is 16 feet in diameter, the  steam chest 18x36 inches, and the air  chamber 20x36 inches. The air receiver is 40 inches by 10 feet in size.  In the boiler room adjoining are two  new 80 horse power boilers, furnished  by the same firm and manufactured  by the Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrooke. The boilers were specially  made to the order of the Snowshoe  people, being particularly adapted lo  the peculiar kind of water from that  property.  Two connecting buildings have been  erected at the new site, near the C. I1.  R. track, to house the new* plant, the  compressor building being 40x60 feet  and the boiler room 26x60 feet in size,  with substantial trussed roofs.  marketed 7,000,000 pounds of coppei  in Montreal and New York, and the  second year was commenced at the  rate of 15,000,000 annually. Owing  to coke troubles, this rate was now, ol  course, much-reduced, but he expected  it to be resumed before long. ,y .7  Mr. Miner did 'not.have much to  say about a oopper refinery, nor just  how soon the company wbu'd further  increase the capacity, of the Granby  smelter. The company wished first  to get everything running smoothly on  the present basis, that is, at the rate of  1,500 tons per day at both mines and  smelter. A new* 60 drill electric compressor is now being manufactured for  the company, to be installed this fall,  Harry Tracy Killed at Last.  . Tracy, the Oregon ercaped convict,  who has been able to elude the sheriffs  of the state of Washington for some  weeks past; killed himself Wednesday  morning in a. wheat field near Creston,  Wash. Possees were close on his  trail, and had broken his leg with a  bullet. The desperado, seeing that  escape was impossible, shot himself.  June 9th Tracy escaped from the  [Oregon penitentiary at Salem, and  since then in his chase has killed nine  men, including his partner, Merrill,  who escaped with him. He had a bad  record before being in the penitentiary,  lie-came of a good family, Rewards  amounting to $8,600 have been offered  lor his recovery, dead or alive, and  four men in central Washingeon will  now claim this amount. His record  for the last two months has been one  of the most sensational in the annals  of crjmc. ,  .  Have Their Own Water Supply.  To supply the needful water for running the boilers of the the new machinery, the headwaters of Fourth ol" July  eieek  have been dammed up on the  Snowshoe  ground, and a supply that  will   be  ample   for most seasons has ]  thus been obtained.    This is brought 1  to the compressor building, a distance  of 1,800 feet, in a two-inch pipe, and  as soon as the large tank is built, will  be connected with that.    In case the  water  does   not hold  out in the dry  season, mine water will be used.  Only the latest improvements have  been used in connection with the new-  plant, and it is intended to operate it  eventually,'when the power can be had  from the Cascade Water, Power and  Light Co., by electricity. This should  be in tbe course of two or three  months. But in the meantime, steam i j  power is being used, and will always  be held in reserve.  Doings at the Mine.  Work at the Snowshoe has been  going on steadily, although no ore has  been shipped for some time, owing to  the idleness of the Boundary Falls  smelt*, r, on account of enforced shortage of coke; but as soon as the smelter  Operations at the Granby  smelter  have about come to a standstill"on account of lack of coke, and by Monday  it is expented   that the  two  furnaces  which  have been  working this  week,  will be blown out   for a   time.    This  week the  smelter  has  been   funning  steadily with   the idea of cleaning up,  and suspending operations till the coke  supply  is  sufficient to begin   again���  which date   it is expected will  not be  far   off,   as  work   has been  resumed  once more at the Coal Creek collieries  at Fernie.    Almost no coke has been  received this week, and the small surplus has practically been used up.  Mines Will Probably Keep Working.  I     While   operations   at   the   Granby  smelter will probably  he suspended in  I a day or two, the1 work at the mines of  the company will likely continue on a  reduced  basis.    Probably   a   bundled  men   have  been  laid   off   this week,  leaving   perhaps   200   on    the   rolls  Some of  these will also piobably take  a vacation   for a short   time, and  the  balance will  continue with   some   development work lhat has been mapped  out  by  Superintendent Williams, who  does not .wish to break up his force entirely if it trail possibly be avoided.  How long this will continue it is  difficult to say, as it all depends on  how soon a sufficient supply'of coke is  received to warrant the smelter being  blown in again. Hut if all goes well  at Fernie, as now appears to.be the  case, it will not last Ion".  Last   Monday   an   agreement was  signed between the miners employed  by the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. and  the coihpaii), by which the men agiecd  to return to woik for  a term  of two  months.    If the men wish to return to  the old  plan after that lime they will  have  the privilege ol doing so.    I'he  agieement   affected   the  men  at  the  Fernie and Michel coal mines, and on  Wednesday of this week woik was le-  sumed  at  both   places, some 40 men  going on at first at Ferine. The salient  features of the agreement, which thus  terminates the coal   miners'; strike in  liist Kootenay, and which has affected  the aiming industry of the Boundary,  because the supply of coke nas practically cut off, are as follows :  A day's woik shall consist of one  shift of eight and one-hall hours, which  shall commence at 7 o'clock a. m.and  shall expire at 3:30 o'clock p. m.  .Miners and workmen shall be considered as going on shift by being at  the prtsent fire station 111 Nos. 1 and  2 mines, and at the fue boss' station  in No 3 mine, at the hour of 7 o'clock  a. m , and shall complete the day's  work by being at the same point at the  hour ot 3*30 o'clock p. m., except that  this regulation as to the hour ot completion of the day's work shall not apply to miners who shall be at liberty  to complete their day's work as best  suits them.  During the said shift there shall be  a period of one half hour, commencing  at noon, dunng which all work shall  be suspended, both inside and outside  the various mines, but the workmen  shall remain in theii respective mines  and shall be ready immediately on the  expiration of the said half hour period  to resume the work suspended by them  at noon.  Lifted the Quarantine.  Last Tuesday, Dr. Schon, medical  ���health officer for the province in this  district, was in town, and after fumigating the homes of Trevorrow, Mc-  Lain and Holmes, lifted the scarlet  fever quarantine from those places,  They have, been under quarantine for  upwards of four weeks, and the  patients are all recovering nicely.  Another case of scarlet fever has  broken out, being that of a son of  Mis Summeis, and is the (list case  yet discovered in the city limits. The  case is being looked after by the city  health officer, i)r. Gordon, and is said  to be light  Anothei light case, tbe loin ^ear old  daughtei of tic Belgioves, was disiov-  ered Thursday in the   Brooklyn bote!  Expected Next Week.  Goe. S. Waterlow, of the directorate  of the Snowshoe mine, of London,  England, is expected to arrive in British Columbia late next week, on a  trill of inspection to the pioperty of  the company. Dr. H.

Edward Gawlor Prior, minister  of"mines, is visiting Kootenay and  Yale, ostensibly to see just what the  .needs of these great revenue producing districts are. At least, the gallant  colonel allows this to be given out as  the reason for his visit. As a matter  of fact, the colonel should be pretty  well informed already on the requirements of the up-country constituencies,  and he and his colleagues have it in  their power to be of great assistance  to the mining industry.  Mighty little credit is due the  authorities at Victoria for tlie great  advance made in metalliferous mining  in the Kootenays in the last few years.  'I'he annual report of the minister of  mines certainly shows an advance  from year to year, yet the government  can lay little claim- to it. ' It has  simply occurred that the industry has  made tremendous strides in spite of  unwise legislation. Notwithstanding  the drawbacks, capital has gone ahead  anyway,- believing that the province  is greater than the politicians. And  capital is being gradually rewarded,  but not as quickly as it would be if  the government did its part.  The genial minister ,of mines, however, it is whispered, has another  object in the present trip through the  mining districts. It is known that  Premier Dunsmuir is tired of the  strenuous life he has been leading as  the head of the cabinet, and is willing  that his mantle should fall ua other  shoulders, for instance, on those of the  minister of mines. And so Col. Prior  . is taking advantage of the trip to feel  the political pulse of '.he country, and  note how .such a step would be ie-  ceived���^especially when he remembers  that,' at the next election, the redistribution act lakes effect.  We believe that the people at large  will welcome the change from James  Dunsmuir to E. G. Piior as premier.

Mr. Hill  arrived  shoitly alter five  o'clock that evening, after a tour of inspection of the  Washington &' Greai i  Northern ra:lway as far as Republic,  Wash.    His party included   his son,  Louis W. H'll;   Chief Kngineer John  P.Stevens; J. W. Ulabon, fou-lh vice-  president; P^iei Sieni*.-, contractor, and  P. S.

Mr. Hill and paity met President  Miner, of the Gianby company, and  were shown 'hiough the big leduction  plant. Mr. Mill slated that it was tht  most mode 11 smelting works he had  ever inspected.  Subseque illy Mr. Hill met a large  .vas only one rule I could go by, and  hat was to try to do what I had to do  is fought to do it.  "I do not wish to leave any unfinished tin tinis (which is Scotch for the  :ig end of a piece of string), and I do  not want to be the fag end of a piece  >f string.    I want lo finish. "  "As soon. as our engineers can find  a feasible route, we are prepared to  build through from both ends. The  snow is now nearly all, gone, arid we  will hot have that difficulty to contend  with., , '  ..'.'���."There have been certain difficulties  in.ihe way of entering Grand Porks,  but I do not know what these difficul  lies are. , I think that someone did  not want us to come in. We had a  nice easy way to come in, and I do  not think the wheels will slide on the  rails. I have nothing against Canadian Pacific friends. I want to be  i^ood neighbors with everyone, but on  the other hand, if they do not want  me, I hope we can get along. At any  rate, we will try."  He said British Columbia had the  natural resources here, quite different  Irom (he other place south, viz: larye  quantities of, low grade ore. It is not  exactly what he would like, but it is  ivhat the railway must have.  B. C. MINING NOTES  Sandon shipped 75 tons of ore last  week.

Acting May.ir Mai vey gave an addiess  of welcome, which also expiessed tht  hope that Mr. Hill would build a spur  to the Granby smelter, and branch  lines to Pho.-nix and up the north fork  of Kettle river to the coal fields.  Mr. Hill said that it was always a  pleasure  to him to meet people who  weie engaged in the couiury where his  interests were located.    It has been the  woik of his life on the frontier to open  up* new "country.    His interests had  been on both sides of the line.    Some  of the audience might know that for  some  time  he was closely   interested  with the Canadian Pacific railway.  At  one time he owned one tenth, but now  lie did not own a dollar, though he  sometimes  got   the credit  of having  bought it.    Continuing, he said :  Does Not Ask for Bonus  "A good road is as essential to rail  ways as  deep  water  is to shipping.  Sometimes the  public have a way ol  encouraging railways, such as bonusing  them; for instance, the Canadian Pacific.    On the other hand, when I sold  out of it, the  company  made  haste]  slowly and  built without any bonus.  1, for my part, do not want any bonus,  and  a  railroad   that  could   not  live  without  a  bonus would make a very  poor show with one.  "Someone has called your city the  'gateway city,' and you must make it  such, and go along the lines of least  resistance. The road is ready to come  into Grand Forks or any other place  where it can go.  "A railroad is like a river, the feeders of the former increasing the traffic  as the little streams increase the flow  of water in the latUr. A great man)  people think that because the company  commenced at this end it is going to  end there. What we want is to get a  good road and go right through to the  coast.  "Hiit we do not want, however, to  build a road consisting of a series of  toboggan slides. We have to seek and  follow* the lines of least resistance and  low grades. We are not asking foi  any bonus nor for anything more than  an opportunity to demonstrate that  some things can be done. We hope  the company will be able to do something here that will make you think ii  has been of some service.  Believes in Low Grades.  "I do not want to be connected with  anything that is not successful.    We  have a little road in  the Crow's Nest  that  I  am   not ashamed of.    It can  haul 2000 tons with a single engine.  The grade here is a reasonably good  one���31 feet to the mile.    Isent the  first engineers into this country intending, originally, to build the main line  through the Crow's Nest, but the government objected to this.   This line,  it   had  been   proposed,   would   also  traverse   the   Lardeau   country,  and  strike the  present  Canadian   Pacific  line  at Shuswap   lake.

Last week the Old Jackdaw noticed  that Elias Rogers, managing diiectoi  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.,Ltd.,  caused a statement to be put upon the  wires at Toronto, purporting to explain  . 11] about the Fernie strike of coal min-  jis. Among other things, he is reported to have stated that, from his  latest information, there 'were ho smel-|  lers closed in British Columbia on ac  count of lack of coke.    Caw I Caw!

It Is a current story in  Tevlotdale  that in the iboiise of an ancient family  of  distinction,   much  addicted   to   the  Presbyterian cause, a Bible was always  put in the sleeping apartment of the  guests, along with a bottle of strong  ale.    On  some  occasion  there  was   a  meeting of clergymen in the vicinity of  the castle, all of whom were invited to  dinner   by   the   worthy   baronet,   and  abode all    night.     According  to    the  fashion of the times, seven of the reverend guests were allotted to one large  barrack-room, which, was used on such  occasions of extensive hospitality.   The  butler took care that the divines were  presented each with a Bible and a bottle of aie.   But, after a little consultation among themselves, they are said  to have recalled the domestic as he was  leaving the apartment,    "lly friend,"  said one of tbe venerable guests, "you  must know when we meet together as  brethren the youngest man reads aloud  a portion of Scripture to the rest; only  one Bible, therefore, Is necessary. Take  away the other six, and, in their place,  bring six more bottles of ale."  f,i/ r, r���z������=T" r:'   ,^  dm)1'* n 1 < ]]\w  Jpoto Mk d Wera  NELSON  &   FORT   SHEPPARD  JlEI) MOUNTAIN WY.
