Vanderbilt's  private coach- over the Great Northern,  a party of wealthy Chicago men on  Wednesday concluded a visit to two of  the high grade mines of the Boundary  in which they are interested. The  party consisted of Captain G. J Grammar, vice-president of the New York  Central & Hudson River railroad; Col.  L. T. Dickason, William Bailey, \V. E.  Neff and S. D. McLeisch, of the Merchants Dispatch, all of Chicago; A. T.  Hert, of Louisville, Ky.; E. Grammar,  of Buffalo, N.Y.  Some of the men are interested in  the Preston and others in the Crescent, two mines about two or three  miles from Phoenix in the high grade  belt. They were met here by Arthur  M. Whiteside, the fiscal agent for both  mines, who had charge of the party  both in seeing their own mines and  those of the Granby Co.  Mr. Bailey expressed himself as more  than pleased at 1 he work done on the  Preston since h" purchased the property two or three months ago. The  main shaft is now down 65 feet, the  vein is from four .to fourteen inches  wide, giving averages values of $100  per ton, mostly in silver and gold. In  addition to this a tunnel has i.een run  some 200 feet from the shaft. This  tunnel is in about 150 feet, with a  good body of ore in the face. It is  the intention to push the work vigorously and place machinery on the  property as fast as needed, some or  which will be electrically driven.  A company has been organized in  Chicago to operate the property, called  the Preston Mining Co , with a capital  of $1,500,000; with the following officers: President, Ferdinand W. Peck,  Jr.; vice-president. A. T. Hert; secretary-treasurer, Edward Ford Johnson:  managing director, Wm. Bailey. These  gentlemen are all financially able to  carry out an extensive plan of development, and after a visit to the Preston  feel satisfied that they have a valuable  property, it is the intention to begin  smelter shipments next week.  Col. Dickason purchased a half interest in the Crescent from H. H.  Shallenberger, of Spokane, two or three  months ago, and since then Mr. Slial  TWO DROWNED IN  CHRISTINA LAKE  Heroic  Her  Si  BLOWN GUI  To Connect  Up  Two   New  Furnaces.  Will   Blow   In   Again  Week.  Next  Effort   to   Save  Companion.  A sad double drowning happened in  Christina lake last Monday, when Miss  Agnes Ruckle and Miss Ida Anderson  found a watery grave. I'he two young  ladies were with -.W. Willey, Mrs.  Wolverton and Mrs. Wolverton's little  daughter Marjorie, all being residents  of Cascade. The; two young ladies  desiring to bathe at I nglish point, they  put off with Marjorie, while the balance  of the parly went fishing up McRae  creek. Miss Anderson was unable to  swim and went beyond h.-r depth.  Miss Ruckle tried tin,save her, but the  drowning girl carried them both down. ThursJay, entirely shutting down the  Marjorie gave the alarm to the rest ol j plant for the purpose of connecting up  the party,   but it   \yas   too   late,    the  All Over the Boundary  Wednesday morning Supl. Hodges,  of the Granby Consolidated, blew out  three furnaces at the company's smelter at Grand Forks, blew out another  the same night and the remaining two  bodies being recovered later.  Miss Ruckle's parents lived at Salt  Spring Island, B.C., and she was visiting Mrs. George K. Stocker, having  taught school in Cascade previously,  being a cousin of the Ruckle Brothers,  of Grand Forks. Miss ���Anderson's  parents lived in Minnesota, and she  had been employed ;at the B.C. hotel  at Cascade. .''.She.was engaged toMr  Willey, the wedding!to take place this  fall. /;���;  Coroner Kingston and Constable  Dinsinore, of Grand Forks--, went to  the scene of the accident, but decided  an inquest unnecessary. Miss Ruckle  was 24 years of age and Miss Anderson but 22.  lenberger has had a force of about 30  men at work at the properly, with  most satisfactory results. This claim  is close to the Preston, and like the  latter is a high grade proposition in  silver and gold, with some copper.  The mam shaft has now attained a  depth of over 100 feet, the ore body  showing stronger and richer than ever.  A wagon road some 6,000 feet in length  has been constructed to connect with  the Phoenix-Greenwood wagon road,  and like the Preston, shipments of the  lich ore, that is expected to run over  $100 per ton, wMl be begun next week.  Mr. Shallenberger has been interested in the Crtscent for a number of  years, and has always maintained that  it was one of the best claims in the  high grade belt. Col. Dickason is also  more than satisfied with the results of  the development thus far, and it is the  intention to keep up the development  of the property as fast as possible.  Good boarding and bunk houses have  been built, and machinery will be supplied.     _ _  _  Brooklyn Avenue Team Won.

Wednesday evening, in udditfbn to  Mayer Runiberger there were present  Aldermen lJirnie, Brown and Marshall  at the meeting of the city council. The  following accounts were ordered  paid :  Nelson Daily News $     5  5��  Morrin, Thompson K: Co   . . .  Pioneer Pub. Co   N. Lemieux   Phoenix Elec Lighting Co. ...  li. (... Trlephone Co   15y-I.aw No. 57, being an  men! to the License By-1.aw, was read  the first time, Pounc' By-Law No. 55  was read th.' second time, and Municipal Works By-Law No. 50 was read  a second time. The city clerk was instructed to write to the city clerk of  Grand Forks for the loan of plans of  the citv hall of that place.  60  '5  00  48  00  102  95  lid  The following appeared in last  Thin sday's issue of the Spokane  Spokesman Review, regarding recent  purchase of mining claims in this  camp by the Granby Co. :  "The banner mining deal for the  year to date in British Columbia was  closed by wire from Spokane yesterda)  when thc Granby Consolidated company concluded the purchase of the  Gold Drop gro.ip of claims in Phoenix  camp for $250,000. The property  has been under bond for some months  and has been exhaustively tested by  diamond drill bore holes.  "The property is owned by the Gold  Drop Mining Co., Ltd, of Montreal,  which expended $40,000 in development and equipment. The group includes the Gold Drop, Gold Drop  fraction, Phillipsburg fraction and  Nugget ciaims. all located east of the  original Granby group.  "In addition the company has purchased from Messrs. Yaughan and Me-  Innis, prospectors of Phoenix, ;he No.  13 claim, between the Granby and  Gold Drop groups. The consideration  for the No.  13 was $14,000 cash.  "All the properties thus added to the  Granby group are crown granted and  patented. The prospecting undertaken  by the Granby company demonstrated  the existence of large ore bodies ol  similar quality and value to the ore in  the Knoli Hill and Old Ironsides. The  group will now be operated in conjunction with the main Granby mines.  "The additions to the Granby properties thus secured increase the company's holdings in Phoenix camp to  about four times the 0rigin.1l area ol  mineral land. The company now has  continuous property extending for 8000  feet from east to west and yooo feet  from north to south. Recently the  Monarch group, consisting of the Monarch, Tamarac, Tamarac fraction and  Missing Link weie acquired at $180,-  000 to round out the group to the east,  and in 1904 the company bought the  Monte Carlo group on the north. The  Gold Drop group is east of tin.: Mon-  propeitics. "  the two new furnaces, just installed.  It is the expectation to have the closedown last exactly one week, when the  entire plant will be blown in, consisting of eight furnaces, with a capacity  of treating from 2,500 to 2,700 tons of  ore per day.  The 1 50-foot smokestack was completed last Sunday as expected and the  bricklayers have begun the finishing  work of connecting up the new flue  dust chamber. New automatic chargers, like the six now in use, aie being  fitted to the new furnaces, the electrical equipment of the smelter is being  increased to meet the new conditions  and the blowing engine-, briquetting  plant, converter capacity, etc., are all  being enlarged.  At the company's mines in this  camp, as soon as the capacious ore  bins were filled, some of the muckers  were laid off for a week perhaps, but  the majority .oi. the men will be kept  busy on new work. After the close  down at the smelter, not only will the  number of men employed there be  somewhat increased, but a considerable  increase will be necessary at the mines,  to get out the additional tonnage needed to keep the smelter busy. Preparations for an increased output have  already, heen made at the,- mines, -and  no difficulty is anticipated in supplying  all the oie desired. ''  When the smeltur is blown in again,  the Granby Co. will have increased its  output of copper by something like'4_  per cent, as the new furnaces are much  larger than the old ones, and are the  largest ever installed =in the Boundary  or in British Columbia.  Boundary Mining Notes  Dr. R. I>. Boucher left for Vancouver Wednesday, to spend a month's  vacation, where he will join Mrs.  Boucher. Dr. E. C. Arthur, of Nelson, arrived Monday, and will look  after Dr. Boucher's practice here in  the hitter's absence.  W. T. Smith expects to resume work  on the Republic group, a couple of  miles below Anaconda, shortly.  George H. Collins is doing s_me exploratory work on some Deadwood  camp claims with a small force of men.  Dominion Copper shares arc quoted  at 33 cents on the New York curb,  while this week Granby shares have  been quoted at $7.23.  Thursday was the monthly payday  at the Granby mines, the amount running about $35,000. Next month the  payroll of the Dominion Copper Co.  will make a showing here.  Both the C.P.R. and Great Northern are preparing to handle an increased tonnage from the Granby mines,  when the smelter is blown in aguin  next week.  The work of installing the steam  plant at the Helen mine, near Green  wood, is under way, consisting ol  boiler, hoist and steam drills. A new  two compartment shaft is being sunk  on this property.  Work on the installation of the compressor at the I'rovid^ice mine is being  pushed as rapidly as possible. This  property is sending out shipments now  quite regularly, the ore being some ol  the best ever handled in quantity in  the Boundary.  W. I). McMillan has practically disposed of the Apex group situated at  the head of Rereineos creek and Sixteen-Mile. The terms are very satis  factory to all interested. It is understood the 11. C. Copper Co., who are  the purchasers through D. Morrison,  will put a force of men at work to develop the property and thus give it the  status of a shipping mine. Similkameen Star.  M. M Johnson, of the Dominion  Copper Co., is expected to return to  the Boundary from Salt Lake early  next week, and shortly thereafter the  company's mines are likely to take on  thc expected activity, considerable  forces of men being employed. In the  meantime, repairs at mines and smelter have been going on, nnd the final  legal matters in connection with the  transfer of the properties from tlu  Montreal X: Boston Consolidated are  being closed up.

The Midway Star made its initial  bow to the public last week, being a  six column sheet, managed by W. Law-  ton. It is a newsy paper, and shou'.d  fill its bill in the new railway town in  good shape.  Greenwood las been having water  troubles this week, the supply in the  old tank being so low that consumers  were warned about wasting. When  the new supply from Lind creek is  turned on, the sitnation will be much  relieved.  The customs receipts for the ten  ports in the Boundary for the month  of July were $8,776.98.

Editor Deane, of the-;Nelson Daily  News���a, paper that is.a credit, to the  community���made a visit to the Boundary last week, and his impressions of  the present and future of this section  'are summed up in good shape in the  following editorial from his paper, on  his return : '  There will undoubtedly be a marked  improvement in  industrial conditions  throughout the Boundary district from  now on.    .It may be that the reported  extension of the "Hot Air" line  from  Grand Forks north to Penticton is more  or less problematical, but there is  no  manner of doubt about the extension  of the V., V. & E. and the commencement of construction of the Midway &  Vernon. Work on both these lines has  commenced.    So far as the V.,V. & E.  is concerned the contractors are on the  ground, their buildings are being rushed up and their working forces are be-  *: ing'su'pplernerited daily.  -     It is  the intention   of the   Great  ' Northern officials to make connection  with Princeton as speedily as possible,  "and   with   the Great Northern such a  ' determination means vigorous prosecution of the work until the last spike is  driven. The Midway & Vernon branch  : also, is to be huilt.      A contract for a  ��� considerable length of the line will be  let  shortly and then construction will  be   pushed   with   the   utmost   vigor.  Grading is already under way, but only  on a small scale.    The  promoters  of  the  road   have  the financial backing  "necessary and they mean business.  But it is not only in the direction of  railroad construction that increased activity is noticeable   in the   Boundary  ^district.    The new management of the  ^Montreal  &  I lOSton properties   have  .their plans matured for resumption of  .operations.     Next month will see the  jBoiindary Falls smelterWorking again.  -The new stack for the Granby smelter  vis  nearing completion and next week  ���the capacity of that smelter will be in-  ������ creased to eight furnaces      These are  (the big things moving in the Boundary  ^country.    There are other signs of activity, though, that may yet  prove of  rlittle,  if any, less significance.    The  success attending the development of  the high grade properties around Green-  ' wood,  the interest  aroused   over the  Franklin  camp  properties, _north   of  ��� Grand Forks, and the rapidly growing  fruit  industry  throughout   the Kettle  river valley,  are  factors that will yet  'Joom large in the wealth production of  ithe Boundary district.  "   . It is a self evident fact   that   Boun  ���dary  mines, both high and low ^rade,  are attracting mom   attention   today  'from men of large meafls-=-Hnen   who  have the financial ability to carry out-  whatever   they   may   undertake���than  aver before in its history.     Not only  ..his,   but  tber<e'is every probability of  tfibis state of affairs being the beginning j  <of a revival of unusual interest in   th<_ I   T0,'.��,��.^��.?5^5.,!fi5*!!^e��?ve,.��rer:!r?  metalliferous mines of this section.  The editor who was told that his  last article was as clear as mud, replied:  "Wei!, that covers the ground, anyhow."  ��� ���"������.  An editor who gave  up   trying   to  please  everybody says:     "Even   if I  sound the praise of my own Maker the  devil would be offended."  #  A country editor thinks that Richelieu, who   declared   that  the  pen   is  mightier than the sword, ought to have  spoken a good word for the scissors.  The Boston Post   man  indignantly  exclaims:     "The assertion that we attended a ball game   Sunday   is   false.  We've got the fish to prove it."  *  A man sued an Ohio editor for  $ic,ooo damages, and was awarded  one cent. It beats all how accurately  a jury will occasionally size up an editor's pile.  *  .An editor says: "We don't mind recording the deaths of people without  being paid for our trouble, but panegyrics on the dead must be paid for.  We positively cannot send people to  Paradise for nothing."  #  An editor in northern  Illinois,   who  started about twenty years ago with 15  cents, is now worth $100,000. His  accumulation of wealth is owing to  his frugality, strict attention to business, and the fact that an uncle died  and left him $99,998.  PROVINCIAL.  Bush fires are raging along the coast  of B.C.  The Dominion hotel at Poplar, owned by W. Schmuck, was destroyed by  fire last week, with a loss of $9,000.  The Golden race meet will be pulled,  off on September 18 and 19 Some of  the, best horses in, Manitoba and the  Territories will be in attendance.'  Warning to Water Patrons.  ' Notwithstanding the fact that there  has been a better distribution of rain  since the first of May than there was  last year, the ground is dryer than at  this date last year. Springs which  were affording an inch of water a year  ago, are now supplying less than half  an inch. In fact the springs on Ironsides .slope, which -were supplying all  the water used for domestic purposes a  month ago, are almost dried up, and  the entire system is now supplied by  pumping from Mi rshall lake. Without  a good season of rainfall before winter  sets in Phoenix will experience another water famine this winter equal  to, if not more severe, than last year.  Patrons of the water system who are  using water' for lawn and sidewalk  sprinkling have been notified that  water cannot be furnished for these  purposes after Aug. 15th, and but one  hour per day till the 15th. All persons  violating the notice will be deprived ol  water altogether. All other patrons  are requested to see that there are no  leaks about their faucets or premises  and to keep the water turned off at all  times when not in actual nejd of drawing water.      ���  All patrons are equally interested in  seeing that the water supply is at least  adequate for domestic use, and by  proper care on the part of each one,  this can be insured. The extremely  dry condition of the ground last fall  and winter, and, the unusually light  snowfall during the winter are the reasons for the threatened water famine.  We may yet get relief, by good rains,  before the winter sets in.  Phoeuix Electric  .Lighting Co., Ltd.  Tbe B. C. Parliament.

B. C MINING  Se\eral Slocan mines which- have  been idle foryeags are resuming operations.  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were 6,750 tone, or 201,953 tons for  the year to date.  The annual meeting of the Provincial Mining Association has been postponed to some date in the autumn.  The Camborne Mining Co., of Calu  met, Midi., is a new company formed  with $1,009,000 capital to operate and  develop the Goldfinch property at  Camborne. It is proposed to add another ten stamps to the mill.  The Slocan Star mine is producing  zinc ore at, the rate of 630 tons per  month. It averages 35 per cent, zinc,  45 ounces silver and 3 per cent. lead.  It goes to the United States Zinc Company at Pueblo. In lead the average  is about 250 tons per month.  The Hall Mining and Smelting Co.  is on the look ourfor a deposit of gypsum, and would be glad to to: investigate any.- property of the kind with a  view to purchase. Gypsum is a hydrous ; sulphate of lime, generally  occurring iii foliations that are transparent or nearly so. It resembles cal-  cite in appearance, but may be distinguished, from it easily as it is less  heavy, 2.3 against 2.7, less hard,  1 1-2-2 against 31" and does not effervesce with acid. :  Kootenay  frneering  NELSON, B.

A business man cannot daub his  name on the fence or rock without getting some good out of it; neither~can  he run a stereotyped ad in a paper foi  a solid year without some returns.  Even if he does not think he sees any  benefit, it comeSf nevertheless. What  then must be .the result of a real livt-  advertisement ? ./If a business man  will simply giveito,his advertising the  same thought and care, and .the saim  application of.business experience thai  he gives to buying his stock/the selec  tion and training of his clerks and the  miscellaneous, derails of'his business,  there is nothing more sure under the  sun than that he will then no longei  complain of rates, or "that there i;-  nothing in it,"'but'will beanenthuMas-  tic and thoroughly convinced advocate  of the efficacy 01 printers' ink.  The Trail Creek News says : "A  young man in town has an open account with a local store for over tw_  years. The first item on it was, a box  of chocolates, and (he last was a nursing bottle. 1'his ought to* be a lesson  to young men not to ,-let account.-,  stand over too long."  ��M  The fruit raising industry is assuming proportions in the Lardeau, fur wc  find the Lardeau Mining Review  speaking of the big Silver Cup mine as  a "peach." The Kettle Valley and  Okanagan districts will have to look  out for their laurels.  .  SM  The Revelstoke Mail has issued ��  special Railway Edition, containing  about 70 half tone engravings and a  brief history of the CP.R. and the  men about Revelstoke connected with  that line. The issue is interesting and  creditable, and gives the great railway  a setting which it surely deserves. If  the Revelstoke district, however, had  three separate railway concerns building lines���aside from the C.P.R.,  which may also do something in this  way shortly here���as has the Boundary  at present, the. Mail would have a. better opportunity to give variety in a  special number devoted to railway  interests.  And when his competitors saw it they  marvelled among themselves .saying  "Verily, ��� verily, 1 say unto you, in this  fast age of push and bustle it is easiei  for a camel to enter the needle than  for a man to flourish without adver  tising." ���:.-'.-  The Editur'.

With its magnificent new Hoe press  the Vancouver World is improved not  a little, and can now supply its cus  tomers at the rate of 20,000 papers  per hour. Under its new management,  the World is getting to be one of the  best, if not the very best, daily printed  on the coast.  MS  Ordinarily there would not seem to  be much connection between copper  and ocean record breakers, but perhaps there is more than appears at  first. The dis[>atches from Bridgeport,  Conn., state that Charles F. Herresh-  ofl, thc famous boat designer, has just  put a boat in the water that will travei  more than 35 miles an hour, which is  claimed to break all records for this  sort of thing. The vessel is a motor  boat, only 32 feet long, 75 horse  power, five feet beam, arid constructed  of aluminum and steel. Mr. Herresh-  off is a brother of J. B. Francis Her-  reshoff, who is metallugist for the  Nicholls Chemical Co. of New York,  is a shareholder in the Granby Co. and  one of the New York bunch that have  large holdings in this company.  fSS  It seems a difficult thing in Phoenix  to do much excavating for buildings,  etc., without getting out ore. This  was shown in the street grading on  Knob Hill avenue last year, and now  it is being proved once more in the  lock excavating being done for the  foundations of the new Miners' Union  opera house and hall, almost opposite  the Pioneer office. When the men  began work there, they hardly thought  they were also to do some mining, but  such appears to be the case. As the  expert typographical force of the  Pioneer is called upon to dodge blasts  of chalcapyrite about a dozen times  per day, in the course of operations at  the opera house site, the miners may  succeed in puncturing some of the  heavy editorials appearing in this publication before they get done.  ���M  Over in Hediey, they wanted a certain road built, and wanted it badly.  So, in accordance with the good old  custom a petition was circulated, and  of course it received the signatures, pf  everyone, th,e. p_d,, \\\e young and the  middle aged, as petitions always do,  At last accounts the petition was eight  feet long. If it will keep on growing,  it should have quite a length, if not  strength, by the time it reaches the  powers that be.  Ml  To Exaalae Zlic Reiourcci,  ���s  #  The Dominion government has acceded to the representations which  have been made to it, from British  Columbia, and wjll send an expert to  examine into the zinc resources of the  province. These representations have  been made principally by the Provincial Mining Association and the Associated Boards of Trades, to which  institutions the - zinc miners will owe  the great,,impetus which it is expected  will be given their operations by the  increased knowledge and wider advertisement which will result from the expert's examination.  It is reported that W. R. Ingalls,  the famous zinc expert of New York,  has been retained by the government  for the purpose and that he will be  assisted by Dr. Haanel of the Dominion Department of Mines. The main  object will be to report on the known  deposits of zinc in the province, to  conduct experiments as to the best and  most economical method of reducing  the ores, and to advise as to the proper  markets for disposal of the product.
