During the month of Oecember  there will be no dearth of opportunities  for those in Phoenix, so inclined, to  trip the light fantastic to their hearts'  content. No less than four dances or  balls will be given'by"as many different organizations before another  century is begun by we poor  mortals.  First on the list is the monthly ball  given by the Phoenix Miners' Union  on the 12th inst., which this time will  take the form of a Sheet and Pillow  Case party, for which all arrangements  have now been made.  . On Monday, December 24th, the  White Cook's and Waiters' Union, No.  124, of Phoenix, will give a Christmas  Eve. ball, and have completed all the  details for a successful event.  The Masons of Phoenix expect to  complete the organization of a blue  lodge Thursday evening, December  27th, which will he concluded with a  bail and turkey supper. As this fraternity is noted for doing things up in  style,'this will be a social event of no  small importance.  Next Wednesday, December 5th,  the Knights of Pythias of Greenwood  will entertain their friends with a  dance, while on or about January 15th  next the Knights of Pythias of Phoenix will do tlie same. So, for the holiday season, at least, there_ will be no  lack of gaiety in the dancing' line.  Notice.  There will be a meeting of Masons  at theschoolhouseon Wednesday night,  December 5, at 8 o'clock, Old Ironsides time, business of importance.  A full attendance is requested.  f. F.

New York and Butte capital, represented by James Breeii, one of the  best known smelter operators of the  Pacific Northwest, will undertake the  development of the- several mines of  the company and also to construct a  smelter, and in consideration therefor  is to ultimately control the stock of the  company. . The expenditure under this  agreement'is said.to be,in the neighborhood, of. $1,000,000,.. Not.only; will  tli'e^.oji-Tntiig tip "of tl.e.se"'p"r6j>erties'  benefit Phoenix, but wiil.do an incalculable amount of good for the whole  of the Boundary district.  The Dominion Copper Company  has its head office in Toronto, Ont.  It is capitalized in the sum of <$5',ooo,-  000, 5,000,000 shares of the par value of <>. .1 share. Of this number, at  the time of the incorporation^ of the  concern, two million were set aside for  the development of the mines and one  million shares for the construction of  a smelter. Of . the treasury shares it  is understood that only 100,000 have  been disposed of, and these were sold  at 60 cents per share. Of the two  million shares of open stock, which is  held in the hands of a few, the directors and heaviest holders have agiecd  to pool the same until July 1, 1901.  The principal owners are Senator  George A. Cox of Toronto, Hugh  Sutherland of Winnipeg, Messrs. McKenzie & Mann of Toronto, George  W. Rumberger of Phoenix, E. J- Roberts of Spokane and W. T. Smith of  Greenwood. When work is resumed,  sometime the first of December, James  Breen will be in full charge and J. 1  Parker a well known mining engineer  of Rossland, who had charge of the  North Star mine iri 3.ast Kootenay for  McKenzie & Maim, is to be made  mine superintendent.

The management' has  recently erected a new bunk.house for  the men; and has also equipped a very',  fine assay office at the mine. During  the last (ew weeks the Snowshoe has  shipped a number of carloads of ore to  the smelter, but it is believed that the  company intends to push "development  vigorously before devoting much atten-  tjpivto shipping;. Mr. McMillan goes  t__J.oi.doi- to confer, with his .colleagues  on the board as to the future policy ol  the company, and he expects to be in  England during the greater part of the  winter.  MR. DORSEY FLOATED IT  The holdings of the Dominion  Copper Co. consist of the Brooklyn,-  Stemwinder, Idaho, Monlezuma, Standard and Rawhide, situated in the  heart of Phoenix cam]), on the north  side of the gulch that traverses the incorporated limits of the city of l'hoenix. A large amount of development  has been done, the deepest workings  being 300 feet below the surface. Ac-  cordmg to the last report made by  Frank Robbins, i\l. E., at the time  which he was in charge of the development of the mines, the average of all  assays of the ore gave $11.75 a ton��  allowing 13 cents a pound for the copper contents, which run from 3.5 to  '4"per cent.  J'he Brooklyn and Idaho are upon  the same lode, and the Stemwinder  and Montezuma upon another.whilethe  Rawhide is upon the third. On the  surface the Brooklyn lode has been  crosscut, showing a width of fully 100  feet. On the Idaho the same vein  measures 150 feet in width. The  Stemwinder has a mineralized capping  that can be traced for a width of 250  feet, but there are  several  faults  and  Secured  Capital   in  Centres.  Eastern  Will. Develop the Well Known Blue Bell and  J. S. Claims in Summit Camp.  John 0orsev, of l'hoenix, a i'ew weeks  since went east to interest capitalists in  Summit camp claims. Before starting he  took bonds on two well known claims  in that camp, the Blue Hell and J. S.,  the amount of the bonds being $67,000.  Word has been received here that  Mr. Dorsey has been successful in  securing the co-operation of monied  men in" the east to develop the properties. He has organized a strong  company, the chief stockholders being  wealthy business men in Chicago, and  Mr. Dorsey is expected back early  this month to start activeoperations on  the properties.  On the J. S. claim the development  so far aininounts to but 60 feet, and  on the Blue Bell 30 feet, but they are  regarded by mining men farmiliar with  the section as most promising  prospects.

On this point���values���the local  management is not disposed to bo  communicative, but no secret is made  of the fact that they are exceedingly^  satisfactory.  Inasmuch as the holes diilled are  at least 600 or 700 feet in depth, it  Vvill be noted that this readily-- establishes the fact that the ore bodies in  the now famous propei ties go down at  least to a: depth of 1.000 feet���and  probably much deeper.

Altei lcteiung to the  progress of Ins .ainpai;_n throughout  the constituency and meeting Hon.  Clifford Siftou on the pl.-tioim at  Grand Forks, he compaied the claims  of the Laurier government tuconsiuei-  ation from laboring men, to its treatment of the recent fisheries stiike on  the Fraser river. He s[ioke strongly  against Japaneseand Chinese immigration to the province, and believed  there bad been hood I ing at Victoria,  otherwise how does it occur that such  aliens were made British subjects so  quickly.  Mr. Foley spoke for nearly an hour,  and it was plain that the audience was  with him. He closed by calling on  R. I_. Kerr, wIjo s|)olce in sui>|>ort of  Mr. Galliher, the liberal candidate.  Mr. Kerr said it gave him pain to  oppose s<) good a man as Mr. Foley,  as he himself had been in favor of a  labor candidate. He tried to explain  why he was not supporting Mr. Foley,  and closed with some forcible remarks.  James Wilkes, of Nelson, followed  Mr. Kerr, and gave his reasons as to  why a third party bad been placed in  the field. He dealt with Premier  Laurier and the liberal party, and concluded by explaining why be felt so  sure of Mr. Foley's success at the polls  next Thursday.  The effect of the meeting was distinctly favorable to Mr. Foley, and it  is generally conceded that he will have  a very large vote in tlie Poundary.

It is that,  .through a regular corps of idiable and  _!\penenced i-oriespondents, covering  impqit-tnt mining camps, statistics and  data should be gathcied and disscm^  nated judiciously in the east and in  the old *.orld among capitalists.  For man} \cars it was thought that  .success j/i mining was entirely due to  &ood lt,cl>, ,'Ihis.vvasand is so, to  j>oi.)e pxtejit. .lut events of iecent  ^eais have proved that goodt business  ability can bring as great success, when  l-acl-ed byt am])lc capital, in the puisutt  ot mining at1 in any other vvalkof life  'I'iiis is an.ply,i>roved in^the case of  0jt.._c or two.

In the latter  case there Mere "not a" few metal Iup  jrists who. predicted"-failure for ycais;  Net capital and vvise'business management won the day, as they will, nine  tinjes put of ten. " ���   '  _\t the outset the Chamber of Mines  is evidently starting light, and there is  po reason whv it should not be made  ot untold benefit to liritish Columbia,  lor thoij? arg now millions of pounds  .sterling only waiting to be assured  positively of thje facts which such an  jurgam/ation can give, to be sent in to  open up our vast nnnoial riches.  j i ii all I nmi.h . i .i/'.ibli < urnilien', both i  I   I hi ill" and   ..blind.
