Enlarged Smelter Blown   in  Again-Details   of   the Self   Charging  Apparatus.  This week, after being blown out for  a week, the Granby smeller was blown  in again, part of'the furnaces being  now in use, though it may be a week  or two before the full battery of eight  furnaces, including the two new and  larger ones, is in complete operation.  The output of the mines is being increased proportionately to from 2,500  to 2,700 tons per diem.  The additions to the plant of the  Granby Co. at both mines and smelter,  The new; double cylinder Allis  Chalmers blowing engine for the converter room, in which there are two  converter stands and 1 o shells, has a  capacity of 6,000 cu. ft. of air per min.,  thus bringing the total available air up  to 10,000 cu. ft. A 300-hip. motor  operates the new engine. /An automatic slag conveyor, similar to that  in use at the Washoe smelter, Anaconda, Montana, elevates the converted  slag,   this   being   the   most   modern  CKASIIV S.MEI.TER,  LOAUIXf. CMAKCK CARS WITH COKE AND ORE.  d-ring the last few months, have been  more extensive than is generally realized. Complete equipment, at a cost of  some $7^,000 of a terminal for tht  convenience of shipping ore on the  Gnat Northern, entirely distinct from  that now in use by ihe C.P.R., has  been provided, this including receiving  ore bins, ore crusher with a capacity of  150 tons per hour, crushed ore bins  and facilities for loading about 1,000  tons of,ore on a-train 'of 35 cars in 25  miniiTes. "Kb".' 3" tinTr?eI, wliich 'is about  three quarters of a mite in length, has  been double tracked and equipped  with a 75 h.p. electric motor and 10-  ton sieel ore cars. The new main  doubie-coinpjrtmentinclineshaft,which !  is being stink to the 500ft. level, is ;  well in hand, l-'or use in hoisting fro.n i  th's shaft specifications are at the manufacturer's for a 200-h.p. electric hoist.  Balanced skips, each of a capacity of  three 10 five tons, will be used. The  size of shalt and capacity of equipment  will admit, it is estimated, of an |  eventual hoisting tonnage of 3,000  tons in two S hour shifts. This ton- i  nage will not, however, be hoisted from |  this shaft for the present.  The two 49 by 210-in. water-jacketed Allis-Chalmers furnaces, just in-j  stalled at the company's smelter, are j  the largest blast furnaces in British i  Columbia. They are fitted with 24'  tuyeres on each side, this being double  the number generally used and of half  the customary area.  The automatic charging cars lately  brought into use are the invention of  the general superintendent, A. 15. \V.  Hodges, and are described and illustrated here.  All slag is dumped hot, being handled from the furnaces in 6-ton pots,  by five or six small steam locomotives.  method of handling that material. A  second mixing mill,,for converter linings, has been added.  The new Connersville blower, driven  by a 300-h.p. electric motor, has a  capacity of 30,000 cu. ft. per min., as  compared with the 12,000 cu. ft. capacity of those previously installed.  An addition of 800 ft. has been made  to the flue dust chamber, this bringing  improvements include a new blacksmith shop, iron storehouse and a  round house for the slag locomotives.  It is anticipated that, when in full  blast again, the recent enlargements of  the Granby Co.,-will increase its blister  copper output by 40 per cent., or at  the rate of nearly 2,000,000 pounds  monthly. . .   ���    .  About ibe New Sell Chargers.  It has been estimated that the new  system, by which the furnaces at the  Granby smelter are charged automatic  ally, instead of by hand as heretofore  ���and as still practiced in other British Columbia smelters���effects a saving of about $80,000 per annum to the  Granby Co. It is the invention of A.  B. \V. Hodges, the superintendent,  and has worked admirably since being  installed, a short time ago.  On this- page will be found three  ili ust rations ofthe apparatus, giving an  idea if its modus operandi. The eight  furnaces are divided into groups of two  each, each group being served and  charged by one motor train, each train  consisting of two cars coupled together  ���except in the case of the large furnaces, where three cars are used. The  cars are side dumping, and each is  divided into four compartments, this  arrangement ensuring the proper distribution of the ore in the furnaces, the  necessary proportion of "roughs" going  towards the centre.  These trolley charge trains operate  all over the yards, where there is about  a mile of trackage, and are loaded with  the proper proportions of ore and coke  with greatest facility and quickly returned to the furnaces. On reaching  the furnaces, instead of running over  the withering heat of the furnace on  the wheels carrying the cars about the  yard, a set of duplicate wheels arrang.

A second brick slack has been erected,  circular, dimensions of which are  height, 150 ft. by 13 ft. inside diameter, 450,000 bricks being used for  this alone.  The machine shop has been enlarged  and another lathe, a big power shear  and puncher, and a pneumatic rivetter  (for rivetting furnace jackets) added to  the power equipment.    Other building  ed at the top of the cars runs on rails  arranged at the right height in the  upper part of the furnace���thus keeping the steel rails that much farther  from the terrific heat of the furnace  itself.  When witnessed for the fiist time,  the entire plan seems simplicity itself,  and the wonder is that it has has not  been thought of and adopted before  this, as it does away entirely with the  customary charging by hand with  wheelbarrows or "buggies," as they are  called. Another considerable advantage is that the men now employed  have much more desirable work than  before. The device is patented in the  United States, Canada and Great Britain by Mr. Hodges.  -.KANliV SMELTER,  i.'IIAl'G K TRAIN'S   L'N LOADING  AT   I- I- K NACK ROOM.

COPPER  AT CHESAW  Shipped    527,874    Tons  Seven   Months.  in  Figures compiled by the Pioneer for  the first month of the second half of  1905, show that the estimated ore tonnage of Boundary mines for July was  somewhat in excess of the output for  June. The total for seven months of  1905 shows that 527,874 tons havr  been shipped from the district mines  so far this year, which, at an average  of $5 per ton, was worih $2,639,370.  Kor the month of July the following  are the figures from the several mines :  Tons  Granby   54.32��  Mother Lode    I3i532  Mountain Rose         330  Oro Denoro  193  Emma ........'      1,096  Providence ..-...'  60  E.

Capt.    Harry   Johns    Is    In  Charge.  Seven months 527,874  While July has shown a slightly  larger total than June, it is comparatively certain that August and following months will show a still larger percentage of increase in output, for the  reason that this week the Granby  smelter will resume the reduction of  ore, having a-bauery- of eight furnaces,  instead of six, as heretofore. This of  itself means an increase of some 40  per cent in that company's output.  Then the Dominion Copper Co.,  whose Brooklyn, Stem winder and Rawhide mines have been idle for nearly  three months, is preparing to add to  the output, and will increase it about  20,000 tons monthly, so that shortly  above 100,000 tons will be mined and  smelted in the Boundary each month.  To M. & B. Shareholders.  Under date of August 5th, Warner  Miller, president of the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., Ltd., notifies the shareholders  as follows :  The sale of your company's properties to the Dominion Copper Co., Ltd.,  under the agreement dated May 11,  1905, copies of which were mailed  some time ago to the registered stockholders, has been completed.  The stock of the Dominion Copper  Co., Ltd., is now ready to be exchanged, share for share, for the stock of  your company, and in view of probable  early proceedings for the dissolution  of the company, all stockholders should  send in their stock for exchange immediately to the National Trust Co.",Ltd.,  Toronto, Canada.  By order of the Board of Directors.  For months it has been known that- ���  the British Columbia Copper Co., one  of the principal mining corporations of  southern British Columbia, operating  chiefly in the Greenwood camp, has  been seriously considering the matter  of trying its luck to the extent of an  hundred thousand or so on some of  our copper propositions 011 Copper  Mountain just east of Chesa.v, says the  Myers Creek News, of Chesaw, Wash.  Frequent visits to Chesaw were made  by Manager Frederic Kefier, Messr*.  Johns, Bash and other prominent men  of the company in whom the B. C. C.  Co. place the utmost confidence, and  slowly but surely the investigations  were completed and arrangements were  made to place, their proposition before  the owners-of. the different claims.  I-ast week the party visited Chesaw  again and rounded up those of the  claim owners who were in camp with  the "result that the boys put their "John  Henrys" on the necessary papers, the  finishing touches being applied in Judge  J. L,.Cresson's office Wednesday. The  property taken over consists of eleven  claims and are bonded for a period of  a year and a half, ai the end of which  time the British Columbia Copper  Company will buy the property out  and out if a satisfactory showing can  be made.  The group bonded consists of the  Aztec, Vl omestake, Western Star, Neutral, Midnight Fraction, Oriental Frac-  tion, Golden Courier, Number 9, Copper- Queen, Rams Horn and Caribou,  and are owned by Frank Black, Jim  Grant, Wm. Fahsbender, J. W. Jobe,  Wni. Lynch, Dan. McClung, Mackey  Ingram, Detimer Bros., Johnny Judd,  Mr. Morgan, Mr. McCauley and Mr.  Lind. The properties are located on  Buck Horn Mt. in the Copper Mountain range, a good many of them being  on Gold Creek. This week the gentlemen arrived in camp again and put fifteen men at work on the group Wednesday morning.  The main work will be done on the  Aztec for a starter, which claim is considered about the best in the group,  the . Copper Qaeen a close second.  About thirty more men will be put on  as soon as there is room for them. The  B. C. C. Co. affairs in chis camp will  be in the safe keeping of Mr. Harry  Johns, a gentleman who has for years  figured very prominently in the history  of the success of that company.  Frank Buckless will commence hauling Mavis ore next Monday.  Returns from the last carload of  Skylark ore gave about $70 to the ton.  Another power drill will be added  shortly to the equipment of the Betts  and Hesperus mines.  Work on rewinding and replacing  one of the 750-h.p. motors in the  Granby compressor room, recently  damaged by lightning, was completed  tnis week.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  Camp.

Uncle Samuel is . growing much  alarmed over the boycott being extended to American goods by the Chinese  in their own country. It is likely that  the question will be opened up in all  its phases.  We are informed that as many as a  dozen men are really employed in  grading the extension cf the Kettle  Vailey lines up the North Fork of  Kettle river, and that the Midway &  Vernon people have" at least as many  horny handed sons of toil in the same  line of business. If Pat Welch does  not look out, these energetic railway  builders will be giving him a few  points on railway construction���if they  do not change their minds, and stop  to get a fresh breath.  Czar Nicholas, with adamantine  nerve, says he never, never will grant  the, demands of the Japanese so far  made public at Portsmouth, N.H.,  where the peace negotiations have been  going on. However, as much that is  published is doubtless done to carry  out the bluff, it is not likely that the  Russian peace commissioners will turn  the proposition down entirely���especially when the men of the sun flag have-  as yet succeeded in getting everything  they went for in this war.  With the blowing in of the Gianby  . smelter this week, with its reduction  capacity enlarged to eight blast furnaces, and with the Dominion Copper  Co. also soon blowing in its Boundary  Falls smelter, recently acquired from  the Montreal & Boston Consolidated,  the ore tonnage from this district, after  this month, will have no difficulty in  running above the 100,000 mark  monthly with an approximate value of  half a million dollars each thirty days.  Things are surely coming our way  in the Boundary, and will continue to  do so.  More   than   seven    months    have  passed  since  formal  application  was  made to the postoffice department at  Ottawa to have mails brought to Phoenix over  the  Great   Northern���thus  saving an entire day here in receipt or  dispatch   of Vancouver, Victoiia and  all American mails.    If our member,  Duncan   Ross, would follow this matter up, something  would  be accomplished, and that, too, without unwinding several more miles of the  reddest  kind of tape.     It has been up to him  for thpse seven  months, and,  in all  reason, there should be some results.  ���  I  ���__ _���#-~��������� *  The editor of the Cranbrook Herald  must have had the experience before  getting off the following homely bit of  truth:  Often the editor of a newspaper is  blamed for the non-appearance of an  item of news in the paper. Some individual will see that some member  of his family has been overlooked, and  will at once jump to the conclusion  that the editor has done it because he  has some spite against him. That is a  big mistake. No real newspaper entertains feeling of spite. It wants the  news and in a case where an item of  news does not appear, it is simply be  cause the editor has not heard of it.  We have been roasted many times for  this, when the fault was not ours, but  the other fellow's. Let a newspaper  have the news, and it will be printed.  Don't sit back and nurse; your wrath  and say, "Oh! that fellow wouldn't  print anything about me or my family."  An editor in Manitoba fell dead of  heart disease the other day. One of  his subscribers took the.trouble.to call  at the office and thank him for a kind  word said in-the paper. The shock  was  too   much  for the editor and he  dropped dead.  .���������.:*"  James Peck McSweyn���the one and  only, the inimitable. Peck���spent the  first part of the summer touring in the  Similkameen country, encouraging the  old timers in that section to await with  patience the long deferred coming of  the iron horse���and incidentally assisting in the getting out of some of the  weekly journals ofthe district. Wearied  with waiting for a" chance to count Jim  Hill's or Torn Shaughnessy's ties but  of the land of promise, Peck once more  hit. the trail,'and landed in Golden,  which is evident from the revivified ap  pearance of the Golden Star's columns.

Those who have recently had occa  sion to visit Halcyon Hot Springs, on  Arrow Lake, are loud in their praise of  the manner in which that popular re1  sort is being conducted by Harry Mcintosh, who quite recently took hold  of the hotel.

John Harryman, of Baltimore, proposes to reopen the O.K.. mine at  Rossland, once a famous free gold  property of that camp.  H is claimed that the Baltimore  mine, on Woodberry creek, is shipping  12 tons of ore that will run 4,000  ounces of silver to the ton.  Only members of the United Mine  Workers of America are to be employ  ed in the properties of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal C<>. after September ist.  The new Sullivan smelter expects to  treat silver lead ore at $5 per ton,  against tlie old rate of$i8and$20  charged by custom smelters. The  Huntington-Heberlein process is being  successfully used.  A dividend on the Arlington mine  at Erie is announced to be paid at  once. The profits out of which the  dividend will be paid amount to $15,-  000, which permits the payment of u  shilling a share on all the stock that  has been sold.  The latest find on the Ottawa mine  at Slocan is the richest strike ever re-  coided in British Columbia A sample ran 7,4So ounces to the ion; the  lowest assay is 1,600 ounces, and others  recently made, point to an average of  between 2,500 and 3,000 ounces.  The California mines, near New  Denver, have been bond..d for 16  months to a syndicate of German capitalists represented in Biitish Columbia  by William Bremner. The owners of  the property are P. Burns, W. J. Wilson, F. M. Black and several other  local stockholders.  Little   Biographies  .   .   of'.   .

New Westminster, B.C., Aug. 15.���  With the Dominion Exhibition just six  Weeks away the various committees  that have to do with the elaborate arrangements are working overtime in  order to have their work all completed  so that it will require only the pressing  of a button to set everything in full  swing on the morning of Sept. 27.  Scores of artisans and laborers are  busy on the site of the 1905 National  Fair and nearly all work has developed into the stage where finishing  touches are the only worries. The old  provincial exhibition grounds, on  which so many successful fairs have  been held under the auspices of the  Royal Agricultural & Industrial Society have been greatly enlarged and  with the many alterations and improvements will, for beauty, surpass  anything of ihe kind in Canada.  The new buildings, which represent  the latest ideas and best skill in architecture, together with the expenditure  of $35,000, are now in the hands ol  the painters and decorators whose  schemes promise most attractive results.

Latterly, howevei, he has  been able to show bow he could operate one of ihe most successful smellers  on the American continent, and a s > to  show the shareholders how the lew  grade mines ofthe Boundary could be  made to pay a profit. Incidentally,  Mr. Hodges has been, in that way, ol  the greatest service to mining in this  province.  Mr. Hodges graduated from the  polytechnic department of .Washington  University in 18S6, as Bachelor of Engineering, having in the meantime also  laken several special courses. hi ihe  fah of that year he went to Mexico and  Arizona, where he was connected wiih  smelters and mines for two years, when  he became chemist of the Philadelphia  Smelting and Refining Works, at  Pueblo, Colorado. Two years later  Mr. Hodges became assistant superintendent of the Rio Grande Smelting  Works, at Socorro, New Mexico, and  in 1893 became superintendent of the  same works. He left there in 1894,  and became superintendent of the  Com pan ia Metallurgica Mexicana  (smelting works) at San Luis Potosi,  Mexico, where he remained one year,  leaving there to become manager of  the manufacturing department ofthe  National Lead Co., at New York.  Mr. Hodges remained in that position until October, 1S97, when he removed to St. Louis, for the same company, as superintendent of the St.  Louis Smelting and Refining Co.,which  he operated until October, 1898. During the next winter Mr. -Hodges was  engaged in special consultation w.ik  for E. 11. Harritnan of New York.  In the spring of 1S99 Mr. Hodges  was employed t.-y the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting >S: Power  Co., Lid., to design and erect a smelter  at Grand Forks. The snieker was  blown in August 2 1 st of that year, and  now comprises eight furnaces, with a  treatment capacity of 2700 tons daily.  Mr. Hodges filled the position of superintendent of the smelting works until  July 1, 1904, when the d'rectors of the  company promoted him to the position  of general superintendent of the Granby mines and smelter.  On"'another page of this issue will be  found illustrations of the self charging  apparatus at the Granby smelter, of  which Mr. Hodges is the inventor and  patentee. By this device the company  is enabled to make a, large saving annually in the operation of thu smelting  works, it being the only smelter in  British Columbia so equipped.  Since Mr. Hodges took over the  charge of the Granby mines also, in  addition to lhat of the smeller���over  a year^ago���he has been one of thc  busiest men in the countr\, but never  too busy to meet the many vis'tors,  business and otherwise, who are constantly wishing 10 inspect or inquire  about either mines or smelter. With  a remarkable capacity for work, an unusual grasp of details, and 1 he acuity  of surrounding himself with the most  capable of assistant's, Mr. 1 lodges has  the entire confidence of the hoard of  directors of the Granby Co., nnd as  well has the minutest detail of the operation of both mines and smeltc: at  his linger ends. Before this article is  read by all the subscribers of the Pioneer, the Granby smelter will have completed the reduction of more than  2,000,000 tons of ore under Mr.  Hodges' superintendency.  With all of the details of a busy life,  Mr. Hodges has found time for some  other things. He is one of the most  accomplished musicians in the Boundary and an artist of no mean   degree.
