Jjjtmrriti tl^paottrtfg:  *^>  (Three weeks ago today George L.  Walker, editor of the Boston Commercial and author of Walker's widely  known Weekly Copper Letter, was a  visitor in Phoenix. He came without  commission from any company, concern or interest, and at his own expense, solely to see for himself copper  mining and smelting conditions in the  Boundary. From this independent  standpoint, and having none to fear or  favor, his impressions of the Boundary  are of more than usual interest. In  the issue of August 3d, the Boston  Commercial has the following from the  pen of Mr. Walker regarding the  Granby.)  ��:  IV..;  Granby Consolidated is one of the  world's big copper mines This fact is  now established beyond question. The  company's problems are all worked  out, and from now on it will be a question simply of periodically increasing  its smelting facilities. While it is not  probable that the company's annual  production will reach 100,000,000  pounds for several years,.if ever, it is  demonstrated beyond question that no  backward step will be taken. The  Granby is an established enterprise,  and it will continue a growing one for  a great many years to come.  At. present Granby is running seven  of its eight furnaces and smelting an  average of 3,100 tons of ore daily.  This means that it is producing at the  rate of 27,500,000 pounds of copper  annually. Were its eight furnaces running without interruption it would be  smelting 3,500 tons of ore daily and  putting out 31,000,000 pounds yearly.  On its current production, if the  price of copper is to average 22 cents,  Granby must be earning at the rate of  $3>700,000 annually, or $27 per share  on its outstanding capital stock.  During its fiaco.1 -year; xx'hich began  July 1, Granby plans to spend about  $325,000 on construction. Its eight  furnaces will all be increased in length  one-fourth, adding 25% to the plant's  capacity. Within a year, therefore,  Granby xvill be able, when running all  its furnaces, to smelt 4,500 tons of ore  daily, and it should thereafter treat an  average of 4,000 tons and produce between 34,000,000 and 35,000,000  pounds of copper annually.  18,000,000 TONS ABOVE LOWEST EEVEL.  Measurements of ore blocked out,  and that located and proved up by  many diamond drill holes, show that  Granby has at least 12,000,000 tons,  and probably 18,000,000 tons, of ore  above its lowest workings. Call it 13,-  500,000 tons, and there are 100 tons  for each share of the company's capital  stock. On a 15-cent copper market  this ore xvill yield a minimum profit of  $1.50 per ton. Therefore it is conservative to figure that there is already  $150 to $200 of demonstrated value  behind every share of Granby stock.  Aside from the big mines at Lake  Superior, and the Utah Copper and  Boston Consolidated companies, with  their tens of millions of tons of milling  porphyry, there is no other big  copper producer in the world xvhich is  so little a mining and so much a simple  manufacturing business. Granby's ore  is remarkably uniform, and it is as  nearly self-fluxing as ore can be. As  it exists in practically unlimited quantities, therefore, the only question that  confronts the management is the one  of economy of production and greater  capacity.  It xvill be remembered that Granby  recovers from the treatment of its ore  about 24 to 25 pounds of copper and  $1.40 in gold and silver. Unless the  company should buy other mines, or  treat custom ores, these figures promise  not to vary more than one or two  pounds of copper to the ton in 20  years. Aside from unimportant spots  of richer or leaner ore, its deposit is  almost   absolutely   uniform, and   the  composition of the ore, viewed from a  metallurgical standpoint, ��� varies no  more than its value.  DEVELOPED   FOR   4,000   FEET.  , Granby is mining a tremendous lode  or bed, which is either a strata of  limestone or a broad layer of volcanic  tuff or ash. It varies from ioo to 400  feet, and averages over 200 feet wide  or thick. Along its strike this formation is mineralized and developed for a  length of 4,000 feet. From the beginning this ore body was mined or  quarried open cut; but it has now been  developed to a depth of 600 or 900  feet, the variation being due to the fact  that one end has its outcrop on a hill  300 feet higher than the other. Diamond drills have proved its continuance  to a depth of 1,100 feet.  With the object in view of locating  its operating shaft, now completed,  where it would command the largest  possible amount of ore, the management some time ago diamond drilled  from the surface an extensive area to  the east of its workings, in which  direction the ore body dips. Every  one of the diamond drill holes found  the ore in place and carrying its  characteristic values.  About half a mile to the east is the  Gold Drop mine, which the Granby  purchased two years ago. A very  large mine has been opened up in this  property already, on a similar ore formation, which dips west, and may  eventually prove to be a continuation  of Granby's other big mine. About  300 tons of ore is being shipped daily  from the Gold Drop, practically all from  development openings, and if it varies  at all from the product of the other  mine, it is slightly higher grade.  An idea of the tonnage of available  ore in the Granby^groperty ^may be  gained from" the TblYowing: A block  of ore a,ooo feet long, ioo"Teer wide  and 1,000 feet deep would contain  400,000,000 cubic feet. As it takes  about 12 cubic feet to xveigh a ton,  such a block of ore would weigh more  than 30,000,000 tons. If it averaged  200 feet wide it would weigh more  than 60,000,000 tons. It is not im  probable that Granby's present ore  body will yield more tl.an a hundred  million tons of ore before it is exhausted. It unquestionably is one of  the largest bodies of copper ore so far  developed.  DIFFICULT  TO   HEL1EVE.  I am quite sure that a great many  of the mining men and metallurgists  who read these letters do not realize  fully what a remarkable smelting proposition Granby ore is. Briefly, its ore  is made up of about 35% to 40%  silica, 14% to 17% iron, 19% carbonate of lime, 7% aluminum, 7% magnesia, 4)4% sulphur and if6% copper.  Slight increases in the amount of iron  and sulphur would improve it somewhat; but all will agree that it is an  ideal self-fluxing ore. Most smelter  men find it difficult to bring themselx'es  to believe that such an ore really exists  in quantity anywhere in the world.  The slight shortage of iron in  Granby ore is compensated for by a  deposit of magnetite and specularite  xvhich occurs in the ore body at  various points, but most noticeably  near the surface. This iron ore contains disseminated chalcopyrite, the  latter being the mineral which yields  more than 99% of all the copper  mined in the district. A little of this  iron ore is kept on hand at the smelter  for emergency use, but nothing else in  the shape of a flux is employed.  Everything that goes into the furnaces at the Granby smelter is ore and  coke; SS% of the charge is ore and  12% coke. The plant is a very economical one, handling about 10 tons of  ore for each man employed. The cost  of smelting averages about $1.50 at  present, and the management expects  to reduce this to $1.25.

John Simpson, B.A., the new principal for the Phoenix public school,  was here for a day this week, and is  now visiting his sister, Mrs. Stewart, in  Grand Forks.  Miss Helen A. Hawkins, who will  give a concert in the opera house next  Monday, arrived to visit her mother  last Sunday, from Seattle. The family  formerly lived in Phoenix.  P. D. Ahier, superintendent of the  Gariboo-McKinney mine, was here  Wednesday, looking for half a dozen  good miners, to increase his force. |  He managed to get them.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., accompanied by C. A. Juhlin, M.E., were  visitors in the camp last Saturday,  taking in the mines hereabouts.  A. B. W. Hodges, local manager of  the Granby Consolidated, returned last  xveek from his outing at Hayden lake,  to wrestle with the coke and car shortage now afflicting the Boundary.  Mrs. L. J. DuBray, of Lewiston,  Idaho, spent several days in Phoenix  this week, and disposed of her property  here very readily. She says Mr. DuBray is doing well contracting at Lewiston  Tohn Cosgrove, one of the best  known advance managers in the west,  was in the city last Sunday, arranging  for the appearance here of the Juvenile Bostonians, who are booked for  August 19th.  Thos. Roderick returned from a  several weeks' trip to the Similkameen  country this week, in the neighborhood of Camp Hedley, where he has  mineral locations. He says about 65  men are working at the Nickel Plate  mine.  PRICES OF BOUNDARY COPPERS.  Holding Tbelr Own Notwithstanding Oenerpl  Shrinkage.  In view of the general shrinkage in  the price of coppers generally, in sympathy xvith all classes of securities, but  influenced also by the dropping off in  the price of copper the metal to about  20 cents per pound, it is interesting to  note what has been the effect on Boundary copper shares in the eastern  markets.  Dominion Copper has been sold at  from $5.50 to $6.25 for the last two or  three months or more, and does not  vary much from these figures.  B. C. Copper holds around $9 and  $10 steadily, which is about the figure  it reached when the announcement of  the recently declared dividend was  made in New York.  Granby has not varied from $120 to  $130 in New York and Boston for  months, it being firmly established as  a steady dividend paying stock at ten  per cent at these figures. In fact, very  few transfers of these shares are made,  holders seeming to be satisfied to keep  ihem.  Consolidated Smelters range from  $[ 15 to $130 in the east and west, and  there are few sellers  In fact, it would appear that Boundary coppers have held their own, in  the face of the shrinkage all along the  line, better than the shares of the  majority of copper companies. ,  Boundary Mining Notes  Former Phoenician Drowned.  James Ferguson, a native of Scotland, recently from Phoenix, B. C,  where he had been working in the  Granby mines, was drowned in Rock  lake Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock.  He was employed in Jones & One-  send's camp No. 1 and went bathing  with three of the surveyors on the C,  M. & St. P. He was ambitious to  swim across the lake, and in spite of  the protests of the surveyors, struck  out, and when in the center of the  lake shouted, "Where is the nearest  landing place?" and immediately after  disappeared beneath the surface. His  apparent object was to beat the Indian  tradition that no man can swim across  the lake. The county authorities have  gone to the lake to search for the body.  ���Spokane Press.  Half a dozen machine men I were  added to the force of the Cariboo-  McKinney mine this week.  Clearing for the foundations for the  fifth giant ore crusher to be installed  by the Granby Co., this time at the  Gold Drop outlet, are about complete.  A boiler is being installed at the  Golden Eagle mine, up the North  Fork. The property is said to be  looking well and to have a carload of  good ore on the dump.  At Cascade the hydro-electric plant  is not in use. It has been placed in  good shape, however, and will be kept  as a reseive should anything happen to  the lines from Bonriington Falls.  This week the B. C. Copper smelter  treated 11,467 tons of ore, as follows:  Mother Lode, 2,907 tons; Napoleon,  231 tons; Oro. Denoro, 1,073 tons;  custom ore, including Snowshoe, 4,156  tons.  A force of eight or ten men are now  at work at the Carmi, up the West  Fork. It is understood they are sampling, under Mr. James, and that a new  deal for this well known free -gold  property, with English capital, is likely  to be the outcome. '.-'���-  The coke question is growing serious  in the Boundary once more, chiefly  owing to inability of the railways to haul  it. . The Granby is operating���or was  yesterday���six furnaces on the ragged  edge, as it were. The B. C. Copper  is in the same condition, and may have  to blow out. a. furnace today. The  Dominion Copper is in. better shape,  and is running along as usual.  Among the Railway Men.  Another Weekly For the North.  Another newspaper venture has been  launched in the north. Last week a  complete printing plant and two presses  were shipped on the Princess Royal,  destined to Simpson, where on the  10th the initial number of The North  Coast will be produced. Ed. Rowland, formerly of the Boundary Creek  Times, at Greenwood, and a man who  has been running printing plants on  the out-skirts of civilization for the  past two decades, will be the manager.  The plant is being installed by the advertising agency-of-P.- F. Godenrath  & Co., of Vancouver, who are behind  Westward Ho! and the Bulkley Pioneer, which last paper is shortly to be  printed on its own presses in the Bulk-  Northern Interior.  The C. P. R. has finally completed  the grade and steel laying  on its new  spur to  the Granby's  Victoria  shaft jfe^ v7lley to'supplfthe^needs"of the  terminal. '  F. E. Hardy, who handles the punch  on the G. N. Phoenix passenger run,  returned Saturday from a several  weeks' vacation, going east as far as  Minneapolis.  Owing to increase of business in  Phoenix, an application has been made  by local .officials Tor the C. P. R. to  string another telegraph wire from  Phoenix co Eholt.  G. T. Moir, C. P. R. agent in  Phoenix, has been appointed agent at  Grand Forks, to succeed A. L. Clements, who has been promoted to Vancouver. Mr. Moir expects to leave  next week. His successor here has  not yet been named.  The Great Northern recently discarded the light engines for passenger  service on the Phoenix hill, and using  one of the 700 class, one of the moguls,  in order to be able to handle the ore  from the Idaho mine. When the  C. P. R. however, could not furnish  the Idaho dumps promptly at Denoro,  one of the little dinky engines was put  on the passenger run again.  Two Fire Alarms.  Saturday afternoon fire broke out in  the Phoenix bakery, on Phoenix street,  the building catching from the oven.  Water was soon turned on the blaze,  and it was extinguished, the loss being  about $500, according to W. J. Pren-  dergast, the proprietor, covered by insurance.  Mr. Prendergast was put out of the  baking business temporarily, but managed to supply his customers for a few  days. The oven has now been repaired and is in use again.  At two o'clock Tuesday morning the  fire whistle was again sounded, but it  turned out to be some burning brush  back of the Dominion Copper Co.'s  new air compressor building, on the  Idaho claim, and no damage xvas done.

The editor learns indirectly that some readers in Cobalt  think that this paper has been rubbing  it in to Cobalt, but our l.obalt friends  have another think coming. What xve  did say, and what we reiterate is that  the xvildcatters have had a strong foothold in Cobalt, and that farmers, clerks  and otheis who cannot afford to lose,  have been bamboozled by flamboyant  advertising of shares,, to "invest" in  wildcat stocks���permanent "investments," they are, too. The brokers  of the east did the same thing years  ago in British Columbia, and many a  poor man and woman in eastern  Canada now has worthless but  fully engraved certificates as  dence of hoxv they were taken  is the same old .story. The  most of it, never saw British Columbia,  but was pocketed by the wily pro-  motors, and a like state of affairs  doubtless exists with regard to Cobalt.

JAMHS R.  BROXVN,  Asst. Commissioner of Lands and Works,  Fairvikw, B.C.  To American   Subscribers.  On account of the increase in second-  class postage rates between Canada  and the United States, on and after  May 8, 1907, the subscription price  of the Pioneer to residents of the  United States xvill be $2.50 per annum.  This includes new and renewed subscriptions, and is merely the additional  postage that must be paid for American delivery.  Beyond a shadow of a doubt Cobalt  has great merit, as the tale of ore shipments shows, and many will make fortunes there. But the conscienceless  broker and promotor has entered the  arena, and for every successful mine,  there will likely be a thousand that are  of little or no worth. The festive  feline seems to get into all successful  mining camps, and Cobalt, from the  latest stories that filter out, is certainly  no exception.  ���M  According to report, the C. P. R. is  getting   ready   to   spend   considerable  money in advertising the Crow's Nest  line of that  company.    No one  ever  heard of the company spending much  to advertise the Boundary branch, and  yet it is one of the  scenic  parts.    To  the man up a tree, however, it  would  seem   that   if the  C. P.   R. just noxv  would spend more  money   in   motive  power and rolling stock, so  that  coke  and ore could be moved without delay,  it would be more to the purpose.   The  cry is sent up that the shops are overcrowded with orders and   are   turning  out engines and cars as   fast  as   possible.    This   would   be  a  reasonable  reply, if it were not for   the   fact  that  the   officials   of   the   C. P. R.    have  knoxvn for from one to two  years that  the needs of this district would be in  creased by one hundred   fold   in   this  year of grace, 1907.    The fact is that  the C. P. R.  is   too   slow���altogether  too slow, and has too   much red tape  about it.  (H  The Pioneer is informed that a  gentleman, xvho recently came through  on the C. P. R. from the east, stated  that he actually saxv bunches of steel  ore dumps on the xvay west. This information is not from railway officials,  and so may be considered fairly accurate. Some time in this century the  cars xvill probably reach the Boundary  and be put in service.  When the lime will come that there  is no complaiiit'at shortage of coke by  the smelters of this province.  What would be the best way to get  rid of some of the superfluous dogs in  Phoenix, and if they are all licensed.  What people will do for living accommodations in Phoenix if the influx  continues as it has in the last two  months.  What the high officials of the C.P.R.  are thinking of, that they do not relieve the ore dump shortage in the  Boundary.  Why "knockers" xvho leave Phoenix  occasionally for other fields, are so  glad to get back, as they are nine times  out of ten.  Why newspaper subscribers do not  seem to understand that renewals  should be made promptly���for the  editor always needs the money.  If Lieut-Gov. James Dunsmuir will  sign the Natal Act, so that British Columbia can shut out some of the undesirable Japanese immigration.  Why the C. P. R. allows dispatches  to be sent out from Winnipeg, stating  there is no likelihood of shortage of  coal, when the lack of it is already  being felt.  Ability, Courage and Nerve.  Hardly a month goes by but what  some rich man writes arl article or  grants an interview, telling how he  succeeded, says Spokane North West  Trade. After reading a large number  of these, we come to the conclusion  that some rich and successful men do  not know the principles which made  them rich and successful. They had  the qualities, no doubt, but they did  not know what they were. Honesty is  a good thing, but the richest men are  hot always honest. Frugality is a  basis for possible accumulations, but  frugality alone never makes many millions. Strict attention to business has  won many a competence, but we know  of but few who have amassed immense  fortunes by that talent alone.  Great financial successes are usually  the result of ability, to.see opportunities  which others cannot see, and courage  to take them, and nerve to push them,  and skill to conduct them. Success in  a broader sense, does not seek hundreds of millions, for they bring no  happiness and no ease. Solomon xvas  reputed to be pretty clever himself,  and he said he neither wanted poverty  nor riches.  MRS. LUKE MORRIS,  GIVEN  UP  TO  DIE.  HAD SEVEN DOCTORS.  PERU NA SAVED HER.  Mn. Lake A.

It is pleasant to note that the city  council has decided to have the police  enforce the Curfew By-Laxv. Some  observers of boys and girls running the  streets of Phoenix at all hours of the  night and day, blame the parents more  than the children. Something drastic  should be done, or future years xvill  bring many a heartache for children  and parents alike.  Old timers in the Boundary xvill  remember John Y. McKane, of Rossland, xvho stumped this section in the  provincial campaign of 1S9S. Later  he went to Tonapah, Nevada, and,  according to report, made millions  there. Afterxvards he returned to  Scotland and was mixed up in politics  in that country. The latest is that  Mr. McKane has found his wealth  wearing on him, and has taken one of  the surest ways of getting rid of it by  purchasing the Telegraph and rimes,  txvo of the five daily papers published  in St. John, N. B., and will conduct  them in the interests of the Conservative party. Heretofore the daily press  of St. T��nn were all Liberal in politics  The Canadian Royal Mint.  The Canadian royal mint, xvhich is  the first mint outside the capital of the  empire to be designed "Royal" is expected to be completed in November  next. At present all Canadian coins  are minted in London, but after November they xvill be turned out at  the Ottawa mint. The profit, which  is at present nearly half a million dollars, will then accrue to the Dominion  government. Dr. Bonar the recently  appointed deputy master of the royal  mint, xvill return to England shortly  and will take up his residence in Ottawa this fall. The experts who will  have actual charge of the coinage xvill  be brought out from England, but the  bulk of the employees will be Canadians. All the machinery, except that  for the actual minting has been manufactured in Canada.  Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and  Diarrhoea  Remedy, Belter Than Three Doctors.

The  successfel openine; of their week's engagement xvas abundantly evidenced,  and Edmonton theatre-goers anticipate  xvith pleasure the remaining nights of  the stand here.  Only one boy, Jack Hutchison, took  part in the play. He was Tom Strutt,  the lover of quaint little Phyllis. This  latter part was filled admirably by  Halcyon Martin, a tot only about live  years old. Her delicious semblance of  coquetry and elfish humor evoked the  heartiest applause.-Edmonton Journal.  Buster's  Philosophy���VIII.  Resolved, that if we could see into  the future we would often change our  plans. It isn't the future's fault that  xx'e can't see into it. The present is  the door to the future, and it is open.  We know that if we burn the house  today, xve won't have one tomorrow.  If you abuse your stomach tonight  you'll be sick tomorrow. If you take  good care of yourself today, you'll be  well tomorroxv. It's a cinch. You are  making your own future every minute,  and building your own heaven or hell.  The severest critics could but write  praise of the Juvenile Bostonians, for  they are all talented, all have sweet  voices and are so well trained in their  acting and dancing.
