The  Three Shifts on New Victoria  Shaft.  Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Consolidated, was a visitor in Phoenix early this week for the first time since re  turning from spending a month's vacation in camping and fishing at the  coast. On that trip, about 125 miles  above Vancouver, he succeeded in-  taking in a salmon weighing 41  pounds.  When seen by the Pioneer representative Tuesday, Mr. Hodges stated that  matters at the company's mines and  smelter had been progressing satisfac  torilly during the summer, though  somewhat slowly as far as production  is concerned, on account of enlarge  ment operations going on at the reduction works, thereby cutting down  the amount of ore smelted. Two  small furnaces, No. 1 and No. 2, the  original furnaces of the plant, have  been enlarged and are now in cop-  mission, and Nos. 3, 4, 5 and 6 are  being treated in the same way, Nos. 7  and 8 being of the larger pattern. It  will probably be nearly January 1st be  fore tbe enlargements are   completed.  Last month was the smallest for  some time with the Gtanby Co. in  tonnage treated, being about 60,000  tons, and August will be about the  same or a trifle better. After that the  tonnage will gradually grow heavier.  When enlargements are finished Mr.  Hodges expects to treat at least 3000  tons daily on the average, even when  allowing lor one furnace out of the  battery of eight to be under repairs.  The treatment then should run around  100,006 tons each month, or over a  million tons annually, easily. The new  converter stand at the smelter is already for operation whenever it shall  .be needed, and-the roofs of the buildings are now being replaced with steel.  The destruction of the Boundary Iron  Works last Saturday may delay the enlargements somewhat, though all the  patterns of the smelters were saved. A  new foundry will be built, and the  Granby Co. may build it.  '  Rushing  Victoria Shall.  1906       MILLS  Same Rate as   Was   Levied  -     Last Year.  . Last Saturday, afternoon the city  council met in adjourned session and  passed Tax Rate By-Law No. 59, providing for the tax rate for 1996. The  total rate decided on was 23 mills, but  this week this was,reduced to 2a mills  by making the general tax one mill  less. The rate was arrived at as follows : General tax, 14 mills; special  tax, 4 mills; school, 5 mills; total, 23  mills. Last year the rate was 22 mills.  Wednesday's Meellif  Wednesday of this week the council  met again, those present being Mayor  Rumbrgeer and Coiincilmen Brown,  Oxley and McKenzie. By-I.aw No.  59 was referred to'Solicitor J. P. Mc-  Leod, for an opinion as to its legality,  and the couneii decided to make the  general tax rate for 1906, 13 mills, instead of .14,' as decided at Saturday's  meeting.  The city clerk, was instructed to  write to the department of Lands and  Works, at Victoria,, regarding the surveys "made by. trie government this  year for. a .sewerage system here, to  ascertain the approximate cost and  other data.      ir ''..  <���' ���  Aldermen McKenzie, Oxley, and  Brown were appointed a committee to  look into the mattei' of securing a medical health officer for the city.  G. W. Cornish, of Greenwood, appeared before the council, to secure  assistance in providing a representative ore exhibit for the, Boundary, for  the Nelson and Spokane fairs. The  council looked rather favorably on the  matter, but postponed action on it for  a week till they could;consider it more  fully.  THE PHOENIX  AMALGAMATED  Officers Chosen for $5,000,000  Company.  Boundary Mining Notes  To Operate Group  of Mines  Here.  Last spring the announcement was  made that a consolidation of several  well known mining claims in this camp  would be made, including the War  Eagle, Red Rock aud Bald Eagle  groups, the new corporation to be  called the Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines, Ltd. Information has now  been received here that the consolidation has been carried into effect and  that it takes in the War Eagle, Red  Rock, Lulu, Bald Eagle, Dandy  frac-  Asked as to when he expected the  new Victoria shaft at the mines to be  in commission, Mr. Hodges hoped to  have it ready some time this fall. All  of the preparations for'active sinking  have now been made, the shaft being  down now about 50 feet, and from  this on the sinking will be done with  three shifts, and no time lost in getting it completed to the 400-foot level,  a force of miners now being at work  raising from that level.  Part of the machinery for the head-  works for this shaft has heen on the  ground for some time, and the rest  will be coming along shortly. Heavy  castings lor the giant ore crusher and  250 horse power electric hoist are here  now, and the foundations have been  prepared, and the necessary buildings  are under erection.  The railway companies are working  out the plan of how both the C. P. R.  and Great Northern can be fed from  this shaft, according to the original intention of the Granby Co., and this  will also be decided on very shortly.  For raising the crushed ore to the bins  a belt system of conveyors will be  used, something like that at the Mother Lode mine.  McQUARRIE TO NEW  WESTMINSTER  Docksleader-Mclnlyre  Wedding.  Tuesday morning, at the residence  ot the bride's parents, on lower Dominion avenue, Esther May Dockstead-  er, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel  Docksteader, was quietly married to  Murdock Mclntyre, proprietor of the  Palace livery stable. Miss Rhena Summers was the bridesmaid, while John  1 locksteader, of Greenwood, supported  the groom. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Samuel Lundie, pastor  of St. Andrews Presbyterian church,  there being but a few of the immediate friends of the bride and groom  present. That afternoon Mr. and Mrs.  Mclntyre started on a ten days' drive  to Princeton, in tbe Similkameen, expecting to return about September 1st,  when they will settle down to housekeeping. They have the best wishes  of a large circle of friends.  tion. Fielding Unseated,  oo<>o.o*>o;fa��g��__j��^.2,  o-oo-o-oo-d  Halifax, N. S., Aug,  tion of the Hon. W.

McQuarne, intending to accompany-him to his old home  at"Queens.yille,..Nbva Scotia, where his  brothers reside. He had been acting  queerly of late, and it was thonght best  by his friends that he should be with  his relatives, when he might recover.  -���-*. On arriving at' Nelson, McQuarrie,  who had been tractable enough, tried  to commit suicide by jumping into the  lake from the steamer Kuskonook, and  it took five or six men to hold him, he  being finally taken to the provincial jail.  Yesterday he was examined by a commission at Nelson, and committed to  the hospital for insane at New Westminster, whither Mr. Smith accompanied  him last night.  McQuarrie has been a resident of  Phoenix for some seven years. Several years ago he staked some land in  what is now Franklin- camp, and this  year spent some time there, looking  after his townsite property, just below  Gloster City. He brooded ovei this  subject for some time, and told his  troubles to all of his acquaintances  since he returned from Franklin. Recently he soid a lot in Grand Forks to  Jeff Davis & Co.  He had been living at the Brooklyn  hotel for some time, but had been acting queerly, and it was decided to  send him east in good care, the above  being the result. When he started he  thought he was going to New Westminster, though through tickets were  secured to Nova Scotia. A brother of  his was killed in the cage at the Golden Crown mine some five or six years  ago. McQuarrie's friends hope that  after a season at the hospital at New  Westminster, he will fully recover his  faculties.  Mineral Exhibit for Neljoe tad Spokane.  George W. Cornish, of Greenwood,  was a visitor here Wednesday, with the  idea of getting up a representative  mineral exhibit for the Nelson and  Spokane fairs. Mr. Cornish has alio  interviewed business and mining men  in Grand Forks and Greenwood, with  a view to assisting in the project,  which is generally commended, and  should be put through to a successful  issue. Such an exhibit, carefully selected by a man like Mr. Cornish, who  is familiar with the several camps of  the Boundary, and who will accompany the exhibit to the fair, will doubtless be seen by thousands of people  who have never been in the Boundary.  It will be of great benefit to this district in the way of making it even better known and in attracting capital  this way. Mr. Cornish will be here  again next week.  Brief,  But Important.  Last week an earthquake, similar to  that in California last spring, visited  Valparaiso, Chili, and other parts in  that locality, doing damage estimated  at $150,000,000 or more, and blotting  out some 5,000 lives.  During the last week Paul (). Stens-  land, the defaulting Chicago banker,  has been located 111 half a dozen places  in different parts of the world, not excepting Midway, H. C.  The ('. P.

The area of the properties is  21:30 acres, and comprises minera'  territory that is favorably thought of  by many who are familiar with the  ground.  The Phoenix Amalgamated Copper  Mines, Ltd., has been incorporated  under the laws of British Columbia,  with a capital of $5,000,000, having  500,000 shares of $10 par value each.  Of this number 200,000 shares have  been placed in the treasury of the  company, the executive office of which  is at Sherbrooke, Que., and the mine  office at Phoenix.  The first board of directors  of the  new  company  is  as   follows:    F.  P.  Buck,   C.   H.  Fletcher   and C.  A.  French, of Sherbrooke, Que.; George  Vandyke, Boston; H.   P.  Buck, New-  York; W. J. C.   Wakefield,   Spokane,  Wash.; George R. Naden, Greenwood;  Charles Riorden, St. Catharines, Ont.;  R. Bence Jones,  Lisselan,  Clonakilty,  Ireland.   The officers are:   President,  F.   P.  Buck;   vice-president,    C.   H.  Fletcher; secretary, A. F. Fraser.  Properties of the Ceapaiy.___..  The work done so far is  largely on  the War Eagle, one of the original locations of this camp, which mine has  a   good   machinery   plant   and   mine  buildings, used when the uroperty was  being operated several' years   ago.    It  has a working shaft 160'feet deep, with  considerable drifting at this level. The  location   of the War Eagle is   said to  cover  the   Old   Ironsides   and  Knob  Hill veins, and what is supposed to be  the Victoria  vein, Granby   properties.  The outcrops on the surface are large,  and   in   appearance identical with the  Granby outcrops.    The values are low,  like others in this camp, yielding from  one-half to three per cent  in  copper,  and from $1 to $4 in gold per ton.   In  the  workings  of the property, in the  raise from the 100-foot  east   crosscut,  some of the best values were encountered, assays giving $21  in copper and  $ 1 in gold per ��� ton.    Less   work has  been  done  on. the   Red Rock, Lulu  and Bald Eagle than on the War Eagle,  but the veins are strong and the claims,  together with others of the group, are  considered  of   great  potential  value,  having a continuance of the large veins  of the War   Eagle,   common   to   this  camp.  The properties ot the company are  well situated for economic mining by  the quarrying system, while tunnels  and shafts will also be used. Either  of the two railways, it is stated, is  ready to build spurs to the property,  when shipments are ready.  F. P. Buck president of the Phoenix Amalgamated, has been interested  in this camp for many years. He wai  one of the original organizers and  president of the Knob Hill Gold Mining Co., one of the companies which  were afterwards merged into the present Granby Consolidated, but Mr.  Buck disposed of his interests and  formed the War Eagle, Red Rock and  Bald Eagle companies. For a year or  two the War Eagle was operated, about  1900, but since that time has been  idle up to the present. The Sherbrooke and other men associated with  Mr. Buck are gentlemen of standing  and responsibility, and propose to give  the properties a thorough test fiom  this on.  Mr. Buck is expected ��o arrive in  the Boundary some time in September,  when arrangements are to be made  for the starting of active work on  the  group.   Misses Daisy and Marion Hodges  came up from Grand Forks Monday  with   their   father,   A. B. W.  Hodges,  This week a twelve-inch stringer of  quartz was found in the Meadow Lark,  showing free silver.  J. L. Martin has been taking up a  nuihber of the options on claims, on  the east side of tins camp, which options he obtained a few months ago.  The Jewel mine, Long Lake camp,  whioh is being worked by a syndicate  of London capitalists under G. W.  Roberts, M. E., has a force of eiqht  men employed.  Diamond drilling on the Banner  group in Franklin camp, under bond  to F. A. Heinze, is beginning, another  drill st'll being operattd at the McKin-  ly mine, where also Supt. McPhee has  a force of men on development.  R. M. ISarnhart, of Nelson, formerly  manager of the Ymir mine, has been  appointed agent for the Snowshoe Gold  and Copper Mines, Ltd., to look alter  the weighing and sampling of Snow-  shoe ore at the Trail and other smelters.  IDAHO IS ON  SHIPPING LIST  Now Sending Out Ore Regularly.  Company   Has   $760,000  Treasury.  In  Last Tuesday the initial shipment of  ore from the Dominion Copper Co.'s  Idaho mine was sent to the company's  smelter at Boundary Falls. It was  also the first shipment to go out over  the Great Northern and be transferred  to the C. P. R. at Denoro, eight miles  from Phoenix by either line. The  shipment consisted of ten cars, or 600  tons, of ore, and will be  followed   by  A report from Boston states that  the Dominion Copper Co. smelted 18,-  441 tons in July, getting 420 tons of  matte, which sold for $207.67 per ton,  giving .gross earnings of $87,221 for  that month. Net for the month was  about $20,000.  George Cattnach, formerly shift boss  at the Granby mines, has started work  on the Carmi mine, up the West Fork,  with a force of some 15 men, of which  E. H. Thruston is manager. The  mine is well equipped with stamp mill  and other machinery.  At the Snowshoe mine a force of  about 45 men is now employed, which  is being constantly augmented. The  water is nearly all out of the workings,  and a night shift was started this week.  The larger compressor is also being  operated now, and shipments of ore  coutinue to be sent out to the Trail  smelter, nine cars, 300 tons, going out  one day this week.  Prof. Reginald W. Brock, of the  Dominion geological survey, returned  from a trip to Franklin camp this  week, which he had not visited since  1900. The country having been largely burnt off since his previous trip,  he was able to define the geological  boundaries more accurately, the result  of "his trip being embodied in a report  which will be published by the department in due course, and of which  he would say little in advance.  In about two weeks Manager McAllister, of the Dominion Copper Co.,  expects to blow in the first of the three  new large blast furnaces being installed  at the company's Greenwood smelter.  The second furnace has arrived and  is being installed, the third furnace  being en route from the makers. Yesterday the work of raising the ore bins  was started, and good progress is being  generally made all over the works with  the enlargements and improvements.  Latest Prices in Metals.

This ore  came from the tunnel level of the  Idaho. The Idaho will undoubtedly  be one of the large shippers of the  camp in the near future, fulfilling the  predictions made of it eight or ten  years ago, when it was known to have  an immense ore body.  Has $760,000 In Treaurr.  The following is taken from the Wall  Street Journal, a New York financial  daily paper, regarding matters in, connection with the Dominion Copper'Co.:  " President Warner Miller and Director Melville of the rDominio~n Copper  Co. have just returned from an inspection of the mines. The company has  bonded three new properties and is  developing them. The Rawhide, the  Dominion's best mine, is showing up  very well. Throughout the entire  camp the ore is grading about 2.1%  copper. -The new furnace will commence operations before the first of  October. Since the first of January  about 675 tons have been treated daily.  With the new furnaces in -operation  this amount will be increased to 1,200  tons.  "A.saving of $110,000 annually is  expected through economy in costs, the  cost of one horse-power being reduced  from $140 to $30. There is" in the  company's treasury $760,000 in cash.  Under the refunding plan the company will, in.from six to nine months,  take up $200,000 of its bonds.  " Calls wiil be made shortly to upward of 3,000 stockholders, most of  whom are in New York, for the first  annual meeting to be held in this city.  An annual report, also the first, is being prepared."  L, XV. Stabler, a Butte mining engineer, went up to Franklin camp this  week, for the purpose of surveying the  work done on the McKinley group,  which is under bond to the F. A.

From all parts of the Canadian west  and the American west, too, for that  matter���comes the cry that the demand for labor far exceeds the avail-  aole supply, and that those with en-  tensive enterprises on their hands,  whether agricultural, railway or what  not, are at their wits' end to carry them  through. This is one of the evidences  of the prosperity that prevails all  through the states and provinces of  the Pacific slope, and there is ample  reason to believe that this prosperity  will continue for many years to come,  with lands rapidly filling up.  In   the   mining districts, also, there  is a constant demand for laborers, with  the increase of production and  development, consequent upon the excellent  figures  now obtainable   for  nearly all  the commercial   metals.     But,   while  more men could be used in the mines  of British   Columbia,  for instance, as  yet   this   industry    is    not    crippled  for lack   of labor.    This is   doubtless  because of the good wages paid  the  mine workers all through this province.  The fruit   growers, however, complain  bitterly because cheap labor cannot be  had for picking, and in Nelson they resolved that it   would   be   best  to  let  down  the   bars   to the  Chinese, who  now find   it  practically impossible to J  enter  this  province, because  of   the  $500 headtax.  This phase of the labor question  will doubtless be exploited further and  ah attempt made to modify the exclusion law. We do not believe, however, that anything can be done in  that line. There may be dire need of  labor here, but the experience of other  countries with Chinese or coolie labor,  with all the degradation that follows  in its wake, has been such that it is a  foregone conclusion that our legislators  will not act on it, even though pressure be brought to bear, as it may be.  The apparent benefit from the cheap  and underpaid labor of the yellow people is offset many times over by the  disease-breeding conditions which invariably prevail wherever they locate���  conditions a description of which would  not look well in print.  Following the typhoid fever epidemic of last winter in Phoenix, which  resulted fatally in five or six cases, the  city council took up the question with  the government of some sort of a  sewerage system for this city. The  health department at Victoria sent an  engineer to look over the ground, and  later surveys were made to secure data  on which to act at the proper time.  The members of the city council,  realizing the need of a better system  of sanitation than now exists, have  been looking into the matter and endeavoring to learn whether sufficient  water could be secured to flush sewers,  if such were built. This is yet to be  determined, but whether the water can  be had from the usual source of supply or not, something must be done in  the matter, and that with as little delay  as possible.  It is the idea that some large septic  tanks, located at a proper point, below j  the city, would serve the purpose for  taking care of the sewage of Phoenix,  but right here comes the question of  finances. A simple sewer, it is  estimated, will cost from $15,000 to  $25,000, and of course it cannot be  done without issuing debentures and  incurring that much indebtedness.  Those who favor this plan point out  that, if connection with sewers was  charged for at a reasonable rate, it  would afford an income that would  amply take care of the interest on the  debentures and provide for the sinking  fund without trouble. This is a matter  of the greatest importance to everyone  living in Phoenix, and residents generally should support the council in the  effort to_ permanently better the sanitary conditions as they now exist. No  more epidemics are desired.  W. V,  Remarkable   Gains  Years.

A dispatch to a Spokane paper from  Twisp, Wash., says that the Alder  mine is again in the lime light. W. Y.  Williams of Spokane, who has spent  several days in sampling the property,  concluded his examination and left for  British Columbia. Mr. Graves represents, it is said, the Granby people, and  his trip here was to.determine whether  the ore can be successfully treated by  the smelting process.  The owners of the  Alder  recently  paid   to   Ansel   B. Howe  and   T. H.  Cuthbertson $10,000 each. They were  the original  locators   of the property.  It is claimed $1,750,000 worth of ore  is in sight at the mine and the present  owners are holding the property at a  million and a quarter.     If the samples  Mr. Williams sent to headquarters for  analysis prove satisfactory an offer for  the property will be made by his  people  Stomach Troubles  and Constipation.

What a lot of philanthropists the  school book pudlisher, of New Vork  must be. In this connection it is said  hat the revised spelling of 300 words  authorized in the New Vork public  ;.schools will require the purchase of  new spellers by some 500,000 pupils,  and, strange to remark, the publishers  of works of this kind are enthusiastic  orthographic reformers.  sw  This week another mine was added  to the list of shippers from this camp  ���the Idaho. And there seems to be  no doubt whatever that the Idaho will  produce an immense tonnage in the  future.  Editor Simpson, of the Cranbrook  Herald,: who is an observant fellow,  after his first visit to the Boundary recently, gave his impressions to his  thousand readers, and we take a few  excerpts :  The Boundary country is a wonderful section. God was good when he  laid out that territory. Talk about  riches! Why,-the wealth of the Boundary country is still unknown. 'Tis  true, already thousands upon thousands  are being paid out each month for  wages, but a beginning has not been  made. There is copper in such vast  quantities, that even now, with all that  has been done to meet the demand,  the .smelter capacity is inadequate.  There are, other minerals, and the sale  of a mine today or tomorrow for $50,-  000 or $250,000 no longer causes  comment. There is timber and lots of  it,, and sawmills are being erected to  take care of this supply. And the  Lord tempered the climate to the fruit  tree, and today there are vast tracts  covered with orchards that demonstrate  what intelligence, climate and soil will  do towards taking advantage of the  natural opportunities offered. Grand  Forks and Midway are in the center of  a vast fruit region, where man puts in  the tree and nature does the rest. The  interior of British Columbia will in a  few years furnish all of the fruit for its  own consumption and for the thousands upon thousands that are populating the prairie provinces to the east.  MS  Phoenix is a marvel. It has a population of about 1,500, and a payroll of  over $60,000 per month. There are 700  men employed in the mines, and payday is a day never to be forgotten when  first seen ��� by a visitor to that town.  A more prosperous town cannot be  found in all Canada, and way up there  in the clouds, at an elevation ot 4,640  feet W. B. Willcox for years has published one of the,best papers.in west  ern Canada,,the Phoenix Pioneer.  We took the stage ride from Phoenix to Greenwood. It is just four and  a half miles, and in that distance you  drop 2,161 feet. We sat on the front  seat with the driver, and when he cracked his long whip and started the fonr  horses at a run, he said, "Say, mister,  if you are nervous, I'll slow up at the  steep places." Assuming a look of  ennui, I calmly remarked, "You can't  let those leaders go too fast to suit me."  I proposed to play the game, and he  took me at my word, and we made the  four and a half miles in just 26J4  minutes. When we landed at the hotel  the driver asked me how I liked the  ride. In a careless sort of a way I  answered, "You are a little too slow for  me," and yet when I got to my room  it took twenty minutes to get my hair  to lie down on my head.  MRS. O. D.
