I'he  iailwa\   company  must   secure pcimission liom the provincial government before it be_.au the  woik   of   onstinotion   across  crown  lands.    A   large  nuiiibei   of mii.eral  claims   are   crossed   by   this bianch,  which   arc  still   the  propeuy  ol'lhe  ci own.     I'his pet mission is now being  sought,   and  it is thought  by Clu'el  Kngineei Kennedy that it will   be ob>  tained in a lev; dajs and the construction   work   immediately  undertaken.  Mr. Kennedy has ordeis to go  ahead  and build the Phoenix spur as fast  as  the contractors can do the work,  and  while he has ordered Stewatt & Welch  to hold off for a little, the above is the  sole leasou.    Mr. Kennedy stales that  so  far  as  he  knows  the line will be  built ti]) Fourth of July creek, as  permanently located, and anticipites that  the necessary permission from the pio-  vincial  govt*, anient  will   be given'al  once.    It is therefoie likely that something definite in the way of the establishment of construction camps  along  the line of the Phoenix branch will be  undertaken s.me time next week.  Line, to the Knob Hill M'ie.  Jim Hill is well known to be an aggressive fighter, when he gets his fighting clothes on, and in the building of  this lioundary railway he has evidently  donned his war paint. Of coui.se one  big icason for. building to Phoenix is  to secure the tonnage of the Dominion  Cop|)er Co.'s properties. But there  are other shipping properties, and  ���\vhen- Mr.-Hill' builds aV_��lW��.ydme-he  wants,tonnage for it.  Accordingly it is no surprise toleain  that the party of engineers now camped  in Phoenix, under Mr. McCarty, aie  engaged in running lines to reach the  Knob Hill mine. To do this the line  must be extended down the valley  some little distance, and then a switchback used to icach the Gianby Co.'s  properly. Another plan is to leave the  main line of the I'hoenix branch below town, and run up the hill back of  the Biookhn, ciossing the (J. P. R.  depot on a trestle some 40 or 50 feet  high. This latter line, however, would  piobablv be the moie expensive to  build.  once more. .She.'jjl^aded not guilty,  and Johnson swqt.-jiositiyely thai she  took the mouejv_ ''"he defendant ,was  held in J>2,ooo bond;, for the county  court,' tvhieJi she'furnished and was  set at libeily. , ) >--;AJ, . <t  Cole, McMllfU|S��spea<cf  A meetiijg of "lK_|boaVd of police  commissioners -vras Jheld.

Claimed it was Stolen From Him Down in the  Red Light District.  It is a difficult thing to believe, but  there aie men���or weie���who will go  aiound continually with say $1,800 in  their pockets all the time. Such a  man was Pied Johnson, a native o!  Sweden and a minei, up lo Monday  night. He does not cany that amount  with him now.  Last Monday Johnson wished to see  all thcre.was to be seen, so he visited  a house in the lowei part of the city  kept by Claia Wells. I.ate that night  he declaied he had been robbed of  $1,800 in bills���ten ciisp $100 bills,  a lew fifties and some lesser denominations. This loss he repotted to the  poiice, alter Bessie Hums, the woman  who is implicated, had had thiee houis  stait to get auoss the Boundary line.  Chief of Police McMillan went to  Greenwood, arriving there about 12  o'clock,, but learning that she had gone  oh to cioss the line at Midway and  had had more time .'than needed, he  did not go further.'  But Johnson had war in his eye.  It is said he lost money in the failure  of a Spokane bank in 1893, and since  then he would tittst no bank, and he  ptoposed to make an effort to icrove.i  thai $1,800. He engaged Solicitor  Whiteside, and swore out a warrant,  charging Claia Wells with the theft  and had her arrested.  The case caiiie up for hearing Tuesday evening before Police Judge  Williams, and as the defendant, by advice of her solicitor, W. B. Cochtane,  would not plead, she was held over for  tiial at the county couit. She was  taken to Greenwood, and placed in  jail till she coul furnish $2,000 bonds.  The testimony and papers in the case  were mislaid or lost Tuesday night or  Wednesday morning, which has occasioned some trouble to those interested.  In the meantime, Alex. Bloomficld,  the livery man, who was hired by  Bessie Burns, the woman who took  French leave, returned, saying he had  been as far as the American Okanagan.  The testimony and papers in the  case having disappeared,., the defendant was brought up a second time  Thursday evening before Judge Williams, and the preliminaries gone over  BRITANNIA MINI* CHANGES HANDS.

'I'his is the property which representatives of the Miner-Graves syndicate  ins|)ected a couple of months-ago.       *  The Britannia came to- the attention  of Howard C, Walters in 1899, and he  formed   a   syndicate  to  take it  up.  Since then there have been a number  of deals on for the property, which has  been favorably reported on by some of  'the best experts of- the  new and  old  world.    Up to' the present, however,  none of ihe several'deals have  been  carried to a successful issue.  ,-'    * * *  George .H.

Over $100,000  has been expended in this way in the  last month, and the control has been  secured. He paid on an average $r,-  500 per shaie, the par value of which  was $625, and even then many of the  small holders refused to sell. Geoige  H. Leonard is now the manager of  the property, and it is said that active  work will commence within 90 days,  and that both a concentrator and  smelter will be built. The Britannia  is located on Howe sound, 28 miles  north of Vancouver.  Last Saturday Albett II. McNeill,  of Kossland, , departed for his home  alter having spent sev.ial days in ihe  city in couleieiice with the city fatheis,  Mr. McNeill is the solicitor foi thc V.,  V. and E. lailway, which, connecting  with the branch of the Great Northern  being built' Irom Marcus to the intei-  national houndaiy line, will be built  into Phoenix, and the contiact for  which has already been awarded to J.  W. Stewart.  As is well known the definite line of  location for the spur to Phoenix has-  been made, coming fiom the Keltic  fiver by wav of Fourth of July creek  and Summit'camp. After, the line  gets into the city there are several  street crossings to be made, the most  important of which is that on Scho'ol  .street, near the Pioneer office. It was  particularly in regard to these crossings  that Mr. McNeill wished to consult  the city officials.  There is no tiouble about the ciossing of Banner, Cimeron, Phoenix  and Idaho streets, on the upper pait  of. the Rumberger addition, or lower  town. Then the line follows along  just below the C. P. R. giatle till the  Stemwinder dump is reached, when a  trestle 35 feet high carries the toad  over the creek and right into the rear  of the Pioneer block. (This paper is  thinking of seeming an extra man to  open the back door aud close the trout  door of the establishment, to permit  the. V., V. & E. trains coming and  going���so as not to stand in the path  of pi ogress).  Nineteen Per Cent on.School Street.  date.

A dispatch was sent out from Midway last week s.iwng thai it had been  definitely decided to. eret t the reduction wotks theie ilut perhaps this  was to countemct the effect of the reports that the smeltei would be built  at Grand Foiks, sent oul previously.  In Greenwood there ate people who  positively'assert that they know'the  Fourth cl July survey 10 Phoenix has  been abandoned, and that therelore it  ,is certain that the smelter will go to  Midway or Boundary Falls, 01 Karnas-  chatka, or I'liiihucktoo, 01 some ��here  else. Mr. .McNeill, however, stated  when here last week, that to the best  of his knowledge the Fourth of July  survey uoulci be" used, and niton-  s��|ti_nce of that he was here making  the desired anangements for grade  ciossing<��.  The local office of the Dominion  Coppei Co. appeals to know ot no  change, nor of any decision as to the  location ol the new smelter. In fact,  those I est posted agree that the final  announcement in the matter will likely  not be made till Mr. Breen returns  fiom the east, and that any announcements made now are pure'y guesswork  ���nothing more or Ic-s.

Street  Grade By-Law Amendment By-Law  No. 26 was read and pa-ssed, and the  Dominion Copper Co. was .requested  to take care of the waste water from  the Brooklyn mine, so thai it should  not run over Dominion avenue.  It was decided to repair the ditch  on the south side of Old Ironsides avenue, and also that all costs in police  coutt fines should be., turned into the  city treasury. A committee was appointed to interview Messrs. Danaugh  and Parker in regard to seeming a  stiitab'e building for jail purposes, and  thc council adjourned.  Plans for St. John's Church.  Contractors are now figuring on the  plans and; .specifications for the.new  edifice to be, built at once by the  Church of England in- Phoenix. Details can be seen at the .office of Aid-  ham &' Blunt, H. D.Cuitis of Nelson,  being the architect. ' The main building will- be- 40x20 feet,with a 11x15-  foot chancel. When completed the  church will be a decided ornament to  Victoria avenue and Second street,  where.ii will be erected. Tenders are  to be in by next Thursday.  On reaching School street there  juust-.be.-a grade., .crossing* Juit jan.  almost lmurmountable obstacle appears, in that the Dominion laws-require that all approaches to giade  ciossings ofiailways shall be not more  than live per cent. As the present  grade being made on School street  itself is nineteen per cent, it is manifestly impossible for the crossing to be  made without rendering the stieet  useless so far as traffic is concerned'  That is exactly the situation, and both  Mr. McNeill and the officials ot thc  city realize it. According tothesm-  vey made, the hue will have to cioss  School street about Aetna avenue, to  reach the Idaho giound, where the  depot and freight station are at ranged  to be located. Even it both paities  agreed to the crossing, it the stieet  were to be used for general traffic, it  would be contraiy to the laws of the  Dominion, requiting a special order ol  the governor-geneial-in-cotincil, to get  around it.  One Way to Arrange the Matter.  But there is one way toanange ihe  mattet, that may he quite as s.itislac  lory to ihe railway company. That is  to have the railway company giade  Dominion -tvenue one block ftutliei  than the present grading contiact will  go, namely to Ctuich street, and  thence up Chinch stiee'. to Knob Hill  avenue, thereby making good connections between the two extremes ot the  city. As Dominion avenue, in that  case, would go undei the 35-foot trcs  tie above referred to, it would do aw.n  with the dangei and annoyance of a  giade ciossing where there was con-,  stant traffic. In that case the crossing  of School street by the railway would  not be such a detriment as it now appeal's.  Rumors of Change*.  During the last week or two there  have been countless rumors of changes  in regard-to the location of the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter,'which ii  is well known will be built in the near  future at some point on the Kettle  river, fcr the treatment of the ores to  be shipped from the Brooklyn, Stem-  winder and Idaho mines at some future  A month or two ago P.

And thus ends the competition'  which was started just two years ago,  when the Columbia Co. actively entered the field by building first class  lines from Cascade to Camp McKin-  ney and later to Loomis, Wash,  It has been a hard, up-hill fight on  the part of the Columbia, people to  fight the great telephone companies of  the Pacific coast, for that is what it  amounted to. Messrs Donald and  I3avey, of Grand Forks, engineered  the starting of the Columbia Co., and  held on as long as they could. Then  ihe Royal Bank of Canada, to protect  itself for monies advanced,"~took the  control of the company, and for  months that bank has been running it  ���at no very great profit, it is sut-  mised. So, when the proposition  tame to unload, the bank was glad to  do so.  Thursday R.

It is stated that the Enterprise shaft  is to be pumped out shortly, to admit  of an expert examination of the mine,  which adjoins the Jewel, in Long Lake  camp.  Geo. Cook and \Y. G. Mc.Mynn  have bonded the Ruby claim, near  Boundary Falls, to eastern parties for  $40,000, the deal being put through  by W. T. Smith. A  Last Saturday tlie long delayed  Ingersoll-Sargeant air compressor,  ordered last winter by the Dominion  Copper Co., arrived and was switched  to the Brooklyn mine. It is rated at  half of a 20-drill machine.  A shipment was recently made 'of  175 sacks or ore from the Gold Finch  claim, which was recently bonded to a  Mr. Wheeling for a sum said to be  $iS,ooo. 'The ore amies gold and  silver, and was sent to the Nelson  smelter. 'The claim is near Greenwood, on the Phoenix- road.

For the  first time Mr. Fun est went through the  j K.nol> Hill mine, and was ol course  i amazed at the vasl tjuantities of ore in  sitiht and being laken out. Mr. Forrest says that things generally are  quiet mound Coiycll. There are some  excellent prospects in that vicinity, and  about 40 men aie working on two or  three ot them���notably the Tammany  and Molhei Lode in ihe Burnt Basin,  close by. He himself is largely intet  ested in ihe John Bull, on which considerable development woik 1ms been  done, but is not now working, owing  to a scarcity of cash in the treasniy ol  the company. However, he hits great  faith in propeity, and thinks it will be  laige producer some day.  L. W. Major, the "friend ot" the  widows and orphans," who has been  on an extended trip, returned to Phoenix last Saturday. While away he  visited Spokane, Lewiston, Portland  and San Francisco. In the latter city,  owing to the prevailing strikes, a  traveller cannot even get his hand  luggige taken to a hotel. Mr. Major  will spend .some time in camp.  ���������  Dividends are nice things to have  coming in, but it is not always lair to  judge a district by the amount that  has been paid in this way. For instance, A. L. White, of Montreal, who  was a recent visitor to Phoenix and  Giand Forks, has this to say ol the  way   the  Gianby   Co.,  is  at piesent  spending its earnings:        7,   ____  �����  "I'he public is ijcihaps not aw.ue  that all the improvements in ihe way  of a new plant at Phoenix and the  converter "and a 600 ton smelter addition at ("tand Foiks are being paid  for out of the piofits and not costing  our shareholders one cent. Mr. Miner,  our president, had prophetic insight  when he invested so largely in the enterprise and induced his nearthy friends  .- a.. i;i._.���;��>"  its   UU   ti���_.��l.��...  <N  Mr. White is also secretary of the  Granby Co, and a man ol keen observation. Heie is another paiagraph  credited to him alter his recent visit to  these parts:  ���'Altei each succeeding trip I marveled at the increasing value of our  properties, but the culminating surprise  of all was reserved tor this yeai. My  fondest anticipations of the success of  our smelting operations have been  more than lealized. Whilst standing  before No. i furnace in the reduction  works the othet night I was informed  by the loreman that the molten stream  1 saw penning out had been running  continuously 110111 the day ihe smelter  blew in until then, with the exception  of a close down during ihe holidays,  July 1 and 2, with the object ot making supposed needed repaiis. On examination, however, it was found that  the tutnace was as'good as ever and  that ii did not iequne relining. . .  ���'This showing, I Leheve, breaks all  records for copper smelting, the fui ���  nace having been in operation continuously for nearly a year with the  exception refened to. Consequently  I was not surpiised to learn that the  plant iu this period had tie.ited ovei  188,000 tons ol oie. With the addition of Ihe two additional furnaces  and the converter now being installed,  the enlarged plant will have a total  capacity of 1,300. tons a day. Cheapness ot smelling is an accomplished  lact. Mi. Hodges, the superintendent,  has certainly not overlooked a single  detail wheie economics in handling  these self-fluxing ores could be accomplished and is entitled to all the credit  iie is receiving fiom metallurgists  throughout the country."  Receiving Scant Courtesy.  The mine-owners' .memorial is receiving scant courtesy at the hands of  the provincial, press. Scarcely one  publication has a word of endorsation  for it, and all agree that it is a document that should never have been exposed to the light of criticism. Perhaps the hardest knock it has received  is from Hon. j.-.H.'Turner, who, in a  column interview in the Colonist,  literally tears it to shreds. We have  not the space at our disposal to quote  from Mr. Turner's interview^ Suffice  il to say, it is a fearful arraignment of  the position of the mine-owners.

Forest fires have been pievailing  again during this week on all sides of  Phoenix. All the way up from Eholt  on the railway, there is almost a suing  of them���all doing a great amount ol  damage, in the way of timber being  destioyed. It is claimed that most of  them are the lesult of spaiks from the  locomotives on the C. P. R., which  should be fitted with spark  arresters.  Wednesday and Thursday the fires  weie paiticulaily bad,    The latter day  the    Hartford  hotel   was threatened,  and a force of men were out  fighting  the (lames.    The same day the entire  force at the Snowshoe mine  uete  out  to fight the fiie which uas raging on  the Alma claim  owned by the  Snow-  shoe people.     A number of the members of the  Phoenix  fire depaitment  also went out and assisted.     The 250  cases of powder that had been removed from the powder house  near there  were brought back eaily in the  week,  but had to be removed again to a place  'if safety.  From one point on the Midway  claim seven or eight different fires  could be seen at one time,     As fai as  <iii hiui'ii mine  :'i)H|it.-i'! fur mil.  _ I    UK 11    f|lll    II'-  ~ ~r~.~"."".-'       ���-"-������'������   ������'-'���'���    pllll, Willi Mltlllf/l-n  m.w.v.,.11   1     tv 1       -.-1     "J'J'"'1"i'*- ' "'-I'l.i'i'iiii/ .1 |ii-iip..|lv  i|iii,.|j|v  a,.  iiiil'M'cUimI,    Weiimki'ncpui'ittltv uf frcu millii j- ....11 '  Coiu-f.|)oiiilem'utolirit.d   .
