C.  1  ���1  +  Lt  0  o  I  a  ?  i  1  f  t  I:  :   i  T  .?  I^ast Sunday Nick Tregcar, superintendent of tlie Winnipeg^ made an im  pertain'ore strike on that property. It  appears that during the management  of Duncan Mcintosh, a good ore body  was found in the drift at a.depth of 35  feet. This was taken out and piled on  the dump, and comprised a part of tlie  .shipments that have been made this  summer. During the pendency of  operations last spring, however, tlie  workings at the 35-foot level filled with  waste.  Mr..Tregcardecided to strike the  ledge, if possible, a little further down,  and started drifting for the ore body  20-feet lower,-or at a ���depth of 55 feet.  He was rewarded last Sunday by coming into six-feet of excellent sulphide  ore at just about the point where he  had expected to find it, although the  ledge dipped a little more than at the  higher level. The strike is an important one, and verifies the theory of Mr.-  Tregear in regard to his plan of working the property.  . At present there are about 20 men  working at the Winnipeg, and a. boxcar is almost always on the track, being loaded with ore for the Trail  smelter. As the ore bins have not  been constructed yet, box cars are  fonnd more convenient for loading  than dump cars.  Local Telephone Improvements.  This week the V. & Nelson Telephone Co. finished putting in 25 forty-  foot : poles on Old Ironsides avenue  and First street, having brought over  56 cedar poles of this size from Summit camp. George C. Hodge, district superintendent of the company,  arrived in town Tuesday to start work  on >.stringing the additional wire for  another metallic circuit from I'hoenix  to White's camp and Grand Forks, it  will require in' the neighborhood of  60 miles of No. 14 iron wire for this  job alone.

The regular annual meeting of the  Athelstan Gold & Copper Mining company was -held a few days since at  Grand Forks, and the following officers  were elected for the ensuing term:  James Anderson, president; John  Mack, vice-president; \V. J. Morrison,  secretary-treasurer; Lenox "Buzzell, 01  Condon, Que., Dr. Walker and T. B.  Pringle of Huntingdon, Que.,; and J.  B. Walsh, of Ormstown, Que., directors.  Up to date the company has done  600 feet of work on its property, the  Athelstan, just below the Winnipeg,  in Wellington camp. Three shafts  have been sunk, one 60 feet, one 100  feet and a third about 40 feet. The  60 foot shaft is to be continued to a  depth of 300 feet. A dozen men are  employed at the mine, and a few cars  of ore have been shipped to the Trail  smelter.  Robbing British Columbia.  British Columbia for the fiscal year  189S-9 received $53,263 as her share  of the poll tax on 4,300 Chinamen���  she also got the Chinamen. The balance the Dominion received from the  same source $161,837���and no Chinamen to speak of. The time is coming  when the expense of getting rid of these  Chinese will tax the resources of the  Dominion and thank the Lord, the  eastern provinces will then be made  to pay for the privilege of robbing  British Columbia  now.���Silvcrtonian.  FINISHED STREET GRADING.  Fisher Bros. Made a Good Job of Old Iron.  sides Ave. and First Street.  .Fisher Bros., who,were awarded the  .Contract for grading on Old Ironsides  avenue -'and First street, have practically completed the: contract. Altogether there were 2070 lineal feet  graded on Old Ironsides avenue and  647 feet'on First street, or a little  over luih'a mile in all. "'i'he finishing  of the contract has made a great improvement to that part of town. Old  Ironsides .avenue now stretches straight  away from the residence of J. F. Hemenway to the C. P. R, depot on an  easy, smooth grade. The new grade  leaves the Old Ironsides hotel and  the store of the Wynkoop-Stephens  Trading Co., several leer higher than  before.  'I'he steep hill on First street has  been cut down considerably, and made  more passable for teams. A heavy  bridge, 175 feet long and 24 feet wide,  was built across the gulch, some eight  feet higher than the old one, and is  substantial enough to carry a trolly  car or locomotive, should it ever be  necessary. The improvements in  grading thus far made are greatly appreciated by those affected. It is intended to grade Knob Hill avenue in  the near future also.  PHOENIX AGAINST GRAND FORKS.  Boys of Both Towns Will Kick Tbe Leather  Today.  Sometime this afternoon the Old  Ironsides football team will play the  Grand Forks eleven on their own  grounds. The Phoenix boys are handicapped because their ground has been  torn up by the graders, and they have  been unable to practice for several  weeks. However, they will doubtless  give a good account of themselves.  They start this morning for the Forks  with two special teams and will line  up in the match, in the following  order:  AT ORANBY SMELTER  Crushing of. Ore Began Last  Monday.

Manager  Hemenway will accompany the team  to Grand Forks, and look after the  needs of the  players.  Trail Smelter Enlarging.  ���'..The smelter at Trail is to be largely  increased, and, according to the- Trail  Creek News; the following are the developments contemplated: The cap-  icity of the smelter will be increased  from 700 to 1000 tons per day. There  will also be a great increase in the  working force about the premises.  Two new lead furnaces will be commenced at once. Additional roasters  tor lead ores are to be built. Another  large copper furnace will be added to  the one already in use. More receiving bins are to be erected. A new  crushing plant is to be put into operation.  Tennis Trophy Arrived.  The tennis trophy to be awarded by  Alex. Henderson, under regulations  arranged by the Phoenix Tennis Club,  has arrived and is on exhibition in  Mr. Henderson's window. It consists of a sterling silver urn, about a  foot high, with forms of male and female players on either side, holding  crossed rackets. The trophy was  made to order for Mr Henderson in  Toronto, and is a beautiful piece of  work. 'I'he details of competition for  its possession have not yet been arranged.  McPherson Bios., of Boundary  Falls have already placed orders for  new machinery to replace that destroyed by the burning of their saw  mill. The mill will be rebuilt at once  and it is expected to have everything  in shape and running in 30 days.

Office: Knob Hill Ave. and Fkst-Street,  Columbia Telephone, No. 31.  Phoenix, B. C.  Monday morning .the sampler began crushing Old Ironsides and Knob  Hill ore at the Granby smelter near  Grand Forks, for the first time, and  the results were highly satisfactory.  The mill has a capacity of 1,000 tons  daily, and everything worked smoothly.  The furnaces, with ncapacity of some  500 tons of ore daily, will be blown in  early next week, and then the real  work of smelting will have been started  in earnest.  The motive power for the smelter  is electricity which is generated by a  duplicate set, of sixteen inch turbine  wheels operating tinder an effective  head of water of five feet. A dam was  built across the north fork of Kettle  river. A flume one mile long carries  the water to the power house where  twelve hundred horse power is developed at low water. The saving as  compared with steam power, is estimated at from $25,000 to $75,000 per  annum.  S. C. H. Miner, president, Jay P.  Graves, manager, and A.B. \V. Hodges,  superintendent, were present when the  crushers were started, and' the event  was fittingly celebrated by the citizens  of Grand Forks.  SPARRINO  ON THE ORIENTAL  QUESTION,  Reduced Smelter Rates.  The Rossland Miner, in its issue of  last Wednesday, in regard to the Winnipeg, had the tollowing:  "'i'he management, has just secured  more favorable rates from the Trail  smelter, which will in future smelt ores  at a rate of $5.50 per ton, freight and  treatment, instead of at $7.00. This  will give a greater profit on the ore  being shipped and will also allow of  the shipment of more ore."  telephone of-Manager Aldridge,'of the  Trail smelter, if $5.50 would hereafter  be.the prevailing rate tor freight and  treatment of Boundary ores, and was  informed that it would not. Some  ores have a rate of $12.00, while others were much less.  THINGS HE DID NOT KNOW.  Ibe  Grand Forks Man Should Study Up On  Boundary District.  Several days ago, one J. N. Ralston,  of Grand Forks, was interviewed by a  Spokesman-Review reporter to the  following effect, in regard to ore shipments from the Boundary:  "To sum up the situation, the Win  nipeg, Golden Crown, City of Paris,  B. C, Athelstan, Brooklyn, Snowshoe,  Jewel, Yankee Boy, R. Bell, Oro Denoro, Emma, Rawhide and others are  making almost daily shipments to  the Trail and Northport smelters.  The Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and  City of Paris have their ore bins  filled to overflowing and the bins at  the Granby smelter at Grand Forks  are all filled with Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill ore."  This statement sounds well, but it  is sprinkled with errors. In the first  place, but five mines can lie said to be  making daily shipments, viz., Golden  Crown, City of Paris, B.. C, Old Ironsides and Knob Hill. None of the  others have made more than sample  shipments, except the Winnipeg, which  is sending out ore, but not daily.  Some of them, like the R. Bell, Emma, Jewel and Rawhide, have not  shipped at all and arc not prepared to  ship, even intermittently. Not a  pound of ore has gone to the North-  port smelter, either. The Brooklvn  lias only commenced shipping this  week.  Before Mr. Ralston again poses as  being able to state facts, he should  take a couise in Boundary mineralogy. The facts are good enough, and  there is no cause for injecting falsehoods in a story about the shipping  mines of the Boundary.  Government Fights Every Measure, Barring  Them Out.  A'dispatch f.om Victoria says: . In  the house when Mr. Mclnnes rose to  move the second reading of his bill relating to, labor, which provided for  eight hours a day in mines and on government work, and also made provisions for excluding Chinese and Japanese from employment iii a large  number of industries, McPhillips took  objection on the ground that as it was  in restriction of trade,, it was beyond  the power of the assembly to deal with  jit,as it was a Dominion matter.. The  Hon. Mr. Prentice took objection tha_  as the bill restricted t  on government wo:  prerogative of the Crown,and ncTpPrvate  niember could introduce the bill, but  it must emanate from the government.  Speaker Booth did not rule on the  'point'raised by Mr. .McPhillips but on  the ground stated by the Hon. Mr.  Prentice he declared the bill out of order, Mr. Mclnnes appealed from the  speaker to the house but his appeal  was not sustained upon the following  division:  Yeas���Mclnnes, Gilmour, Stables,  E. C. Smith, Oliver, Brown, Curtis,  R. Smith,���8; ' . ;  Nays���Kidd, Neill, Munro, vHall,  McPhillips, Helmckeii, Turner. Duns-  muir, Eberts, A. W. Smith, Ellison,  Clifford, Fulton; Hayward, Garden,  Tatlow, Prentice, Wells, McBride,  Pooley, Murphy, Rogers, Hunter, Taylor, Dickie, Mounce, -26. ..  This question of limiting the hours  of labor on public works came up in  the session of 1891 upon the motion of  a private member, Mr. Beaven, and  objection was taken on the same ground  that Hon. Mr. Prentice took. The  speaker at that time, Mr. Higgins, declared the motion in order, and that it  did not entrench upon the rule respecting the prerogative of the  the Crown.  The moment the question was raised by Mr. McPhillips in the House  Speaker Booth was prepared for it and  had the passage in May bearing on the  question, marked and read them to  the house showing that the matter had  been arranged beforehand.  BROOKLVN A SHIPPER  Big Phoenix Mine Now Sending Out Ore.  SIX   CARS FOR THE TRAIL SELTER  OFFICER DARRAUGH RE-APPOINTED.  Inspector Of  Is Again   Made Chief License  .   Boundary.

He has already  entered upon the discharge of his  duties, of which he was relieved by  the disallowance of the 1899 act, by  the Dominion authorities, and is visiting the various towns. Yesterday Mr.  Darraugh was in Midway, and next  week will probably visit Trail.  The new license act went into effect August 10th, immediately on its  passage. Most of its provisions have  already been printed in the Pioneer,  but some ' changes have been made.  The fees are as follows : Wholesale,  $200 per year; hotels, towns of more  than 200 persons, $200; towns from  100 to 200 persons, $125; places ot  less than 100 people, $75. For the  four and one-half months remaining  the fee will be $75, $47 and$2S respectively.  The new act is similar to the old,  with a few changes for the better.  There will probably be no need for  calling a special session of the licensing board for the present, as those  now entitled to licenses will be passed  upon and recommended to F. S.  Hussey, chief of provincial police,  who will issue the proper documents.  BOUNDARY MINES.  This Is First Ore Vet Sent Out From the Do*  minion Copper Co'.. Properties���Believed  the Mines Will Shortly Resume 0__ratloj  nee agam there is activity on the  Brooklyn hillside, and the work of  shipping six cars of ore from the mine  to the Trail smelter has  Lommen'.ed.  Last Sunday David W. Moore, mi'  buyer for the big C. TV R. reduewn  works visited Phoenix, and shortly  thereafter it was learned that shipments  would begin this week. As the railway track is only laid to the trestle  above the.shaftii6u.se, arid not on the  spur to the dump, the ore must be  hauled up hill to the cars. A contract  for this work was let to Cameron Bros.,  who hare now been busy at it lor several days. Wednesday the first two  cars, were spotted at-'the. mine, to be  filled with ore.  Information in regard to the operations of the Dominion Copper Co.,  owning the Brooklyn, Steinwindcr,  Idaho, Rawhide and Standard claims  in this camp, is not easy to obtain.  Since development was suspended  about the middle of last February, at  .frequent, intervals, there have been  rumors of the intention to resume  work, but thus far the rumors have  not materialized. As is well known,  Daniel Mann and Wm. McKenzie^  comprising the firm of Mann & Mcr  Kenzie, who are large stockholders,  have been in Europe all .summer,  and Mr. McKenzie lias but just returned to Montreal. Several days sinee  he was interviewe^Kby a.representative  of the Montreal Sta^i who quoted him  as saying, that the properties of the  company in camp would resume operations about September ist.  George W. Rumberger, who is a  stockholder, and W. R. Williams, the  populai local representative of the company, do not seem to be able to throw  light oni.the. subject.. ;3Vhile nothing  definite caii- lie stilted in the matter,  the indications are that Brooklyn and  Stemwinder hill be a busy, scene again  shortly.  LOCAL AND GENERAL.  Snowshoe Machinery Arrives.  The additional machinery plant for  the Snowshoe mine arrived at the  property last Saturday, having been on  the way from the shops at Sherbrooke,  Quebec, just 17 days. It consists of  70-horse power return tubular boiler,  with fittings; one Snow duplex feed  pump, 3x2x3, with an estimated capacity of 75 gallons per minute; one 42  inch xi o foot air receiver, with fittings;  one 534 Rock giant drill; one 6'_ foot  machine bar, with damps, etc.  This week the force at the mine have  been kept busy by Foreman Trevorrow  in setting up the new machinery, preparations for housing which had previously been made.  The first two cars of Brooklyn ore  went out to the Trail smelter yesterday.  The Buckhorn shipped a car of ore  to the Trail smelter this week.  Three shifts are now at work in the  shaft at the War Eagle, being made  to meet the raise from the east drift in  thc 100-foot level.  The Athelstan will begin hauling  ore to the Winnipeg spur for shipment  to Trail next week. The ore will be  taken from the 100-foot level.  The fust payment on the $20,000  bond on the Hard Cash, Wellington  camp, was made Wednesday by J. K.  Rogers to C. J. McArthur, G. R. Na-  den and Mrs. Shonquist.  Shipments from the Golden Crown  are now running up to between 75  and 100 cars, since the company  statted sending out ore. Manager  Porter says that he had some trouble  I in getting all the cars he wanted.  Crosscutting in the Snowshoe tunnel began this week about 168 feet  from the portal, or half way in. Pipes  have been laid to the tunnel, and air  is now being used in place of hand  drilling, as heretofore. Thus far the  ore body has been cut into between 1 5  and 20 feet.  Ore shipments from the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill continue to average up at the rate of five cars daily.  As shipments began July 11th, it  makes 185 cars of ore sent ont up to  date Irom the two mines. At first  they were loaded to about 30 tons  each, but that was found to be too  great a strain on them and a little less  is now put in.  Jay P. Graves and S. H. C. Miner  are expeeted to arrive in Phoenix, tomorrow.  J. B. McArthur,. owner of the. New  York claim and townsite, is expected  in Phoenix next week.  Richard Plewman, of Rossland, secretary of the Winnipeg Mining Sr Smelting Co., visited the mine last Sunday.  Ironsides and Knob Hill stock for  sale. Quotations direct by wire from  Montreal and Toronto. See L. C.  Crawford.  This week a $25,000 lire occurred  at the city of Columbia, destroying the  Hotel Escalet, the Presbyterian  church, Henneger's livery barn and  one or two other structures. \  The Phoenix public school resumed  last Monday, with 43 pupils on the  roll, T. L.. Buckton being the instructor. There will be over 50  scholars, it is expected, in a few days..  The improvements to the Mint  hotel, being made by C. H. Thompson  & Co., the proprietors, are rapidly approaching completion. Nine rooms  will be added to the capacity of the  house.  Mrs. E. V. Metcoff, formerly ot  Nelson and later of Greenwood, has  it-ased the Butte dining room, and  will conduct it in the usual first-class  manner for which it has heretofore  been noted.  Born���to the wife of George Elk-  ins, on Thursday, a daughter, weighing eleven pounds. Mr. Elkins, who  is topman at the Snowshoe mine, has  been looking happy ever since nnd receiving the congratulations of his  friends.  J. W. Astley, consulting engineer,  and A. J. McMillan, managing director of the Snowshoe, were at the mine  from Rossland early this week. G.  S. Waterlow, of London, England,  president of the syndicate, was (.-tilled  to the coast before coming to Phoenix.  He is expected here next Friday,  however.  A letter received from James Punch,  thc delegate sent to Victoria to get  certain appropriations placed in the  estimates for I'hoenix, states that he  has been successful to a very large degree. Among other things asked l'or  weie a school house, wagon road to  Eholt, repairing road to Winnipeg  mine, general hospital   grant, etc.  Robert Wood, one of the fathers of  Greenwood, returned from Victoria  last week, where he has been trying  to get an appropriation for a wagon  road from Westbridge to Beaverton.  Mr. Wood has received a promise ot  $8,000 for the proposed road, and  thinks work will bt: commenced on it  in the course of a couple of weeks.  ;'1P  ,������-���'''_  ';< ',r'��jfsB-  AkSiMb':  "?*'���  _\ISS"!H  .tta-Ewsg  ��� ��� tSLi'-t.'Vii  II  'iS_S��V  -,V  ir nn  m  mm  !��  lip?'  ��!)'-:���  wsm  m  &$&  The Phoenix  THE PHOENIX PIONEER.  rssreh o>>- SATTKriAV in- tun  at i'i!or.xi,\-, n. c.

DOMINION ELECTIONS IN OCTOBER.  r ________  It has'been given out unofficially in  the east th.it general   Dominion elections will be held October 16th.    Pol-  iiicians*on both sides are already pie-  paring  lor the  political contest,  and  it promises to be a pretty fight, at least  as   far as   British   Columbia is con  ceriied.   Paity,lines were to some extent  obscured in the  Jate  Provincial  elections, which will   render the  task  oi making a good showing at the polls  in  October Jess easy   than  it would  have  been had' the liberals  and conservatives  lined up  for a square light  in June last.  The Laurier government,  like all  governments,   has promised  much for  iJiitish Columbia   and   given   little���  especially in the way of redistribution.  ���Today,   here   in Ya'c-Caiiboo-Koote-  n.iy, we are treated with   gross injustice in   this  regard, to say .nothing of  appropriations for public works.    Mr.  Jtesiock,   our  present   member,   has  jirobably covered tiie   territory, in the  interesfs   oi   his  constituents,   better  than any other man would have done.  He has   had  enough,   however, and  lias definitely announced his intention  of letiring.    Few, if any, names are  mentioned   as his   successor as yet.  Whoever he may be,  it is to be hoped  - that he will insist en simple justice be-  - ing done this gigantic constituenq ���  containing more than half the area of  the Province, or over 200,000 square  ���iiiles, '  'I'he Grand Forks Gazette reiterates  a homely truch when it said in thefo!-  lowing Josh Billingsesque language:  "It is wun ov the proudest minks in  an editurz life when he finds in an exchange wun ov his articles repurduced  wurd fur wurd an' credited to sum  papur the. has swiped it frum him.

Many   new  entertainment  features  already   have  been secured, the greatest of which  is  the Royal Marine Band of Italy, forty  lieces, twelvqg_______s and one  tenor  red'B  to make'T'trip to Sa___ppnusLir an  therefore were willing to make a date  for the Spokane Exposition. Music  lovers of the East have gone mad over  the magnificent music of this band.

He is enabled to  make the walls of the cavitv thicker and stronger,  and with slight danger of exposing'the nerve,  the dread and fear of nil when having-teetb filled.  Have your teeth attended to in time. Do not  procrastinate. Give the dentist good tooth-  structure to work upon, and he will render you  excellent service. Many persons put off tlieir  visits to the dentist when seti.itive teeth have  given frequent warning. Willi mind excited,  body in high nervous tension, and with excruciating; pain and suffering written 011 every feature,  they come for relief. How can the dentist be expected to perform the best operation when the  patient is in the worst possible condition to receive it ? If your friend is sick do not wait until  he is almost dead before you do something for him  or send for tlie doctor. The doctor may save him  by coming at the last'moment, and should the  patient recover he is liable to have bad health  the remainder of his life on account of not having  received proper attention at the right time.  Likewise, a tooth that is neglected may be filled  aud saved at the last moment, but will probably  have bnd health tbe rest of its life. One person  iu a hundred has good teeth, ninety nine persons  iu a hundred could have good teeth with proper  attention.  DR. R. MATHISON,  DENTIST  Naden-FIood Blk.  Greenwood, B.C.
