Boundary country on a similar occasion. As tlie  time draws nearer, this becomes more  and more evident. The preparations  for the great occasion aie now well  nigh 'completed, and: theie seems to be  no doubt that the city where the .mines  are will be well filled with strangers at  ibis time. Notonly will the excursion  train bring in hundreds from all along  the Boundary railway,;but others have  sent notice 'if their intention of coming from more distant .parts of Kootenay and Yale���Suriie^even fropi Vancouver. .

She will be  utilized to haul ore on the hill out of  Phoenix, a run of about ten miles  similar in almost every respect to the  Rossland hill. As the Shay was oper  ated most successfully here, it is only  natural to suppose that the big .nil!  will be equally useful at Phoenix.

So  Tlilnks  Philadelphia  Man   of   Phoenix  Mine..' '���  J. P. Whitney, a wealthy Philadelphia glass manufacturer, who' owns  large interests in the City of Paris and  Granby groups of inine-i, was :i visitor  iii Phoenix last Saturday.       ���  He said: "I can almost regard  myself as one of the pioneer investors  in this district, whose richness was  first represented to me by Mr. Graves  in 1897. 'Ihe following year I paid  it my first visit and was then convinced that the half had not beer. told.  I'his is my'third trip, as I also came  west in 1899. Oire can scarcely credit  the progress and development of the  past three,year:. 'The. present' site oi  Phoenix was a primeval forest, in 1898,  and the mines here were little more  than 'prospects.' The Old Ironsides  shaft had ; then only attained a depth  of 100 feet. Besides the mining bunk  house which Mr. Graves had just completed there were only two other buildings, Kiiiubcrgei's and a shack.  "1 was simply overwhelmed with  amazement 'when I traversed the enormous stopes, tunnels, galleries and  shafts of the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides,  Victoria and Grey Eagle, all .of which  are connected. The amount of ore in  'sight is'so great.that to begin',o figure  it out is to, become involved iri incredible and hopeless calculations. If one  were to submit 50 per cent of the estimate, his statement would be regarded  as exaggerated and chimerical. Hence  I will not dabble in the higher mathematics. 'After visiting the Tread well  mine, and speaking from a knowledge  of other great properties,"! feel safe in  .isserting' that the. Granby group has  the largest ore reserves of any mine or  milling group on the continent."  Planning   for   Much  Development.

P.J. I Ioi.ohan, Marshall:  Celebration Notes.  A fine block of granite for the rock  \ drilling   was put  in place Wednesday.  Jay P. Graves, general   manager  ol'  the Granby Co.,has sent the committee  Good Ore in the Winnipeg.  Speaking to the Rossland Miner,  Richard Plewman, manager of the  Winnipeg mine, said:  "Since-lhe date of the recent stiike  another important stike has been made  on the same level, but west of the  eastern dyke and on a vein 110 feet  north of, the other.' Fifteen assays  (gold only) have been made, totalling  $198, or an average value of $13.33  One sample quartered down from the  the total dust of one round of ma  chine drill holes eight feel deep in a  drift eight feet wide gave the extraordinary value in gold only of $92-50 per  ton. Considering the large block ot  ground represented this is the best  assay ever obtained Irom the Winnipeg mine. The ore from this vein  will concentrate and in that respect  differs from all other veins on the  property.  Chief Engineer Kennedy Here.  James H. Kennedy, chief engineei  of the V. V. it.'l-. railway, came in by  Thursday's train, to consult with En  gineer McCarty, in charge of the camp  located on the Idaho claim here.  Mr. Kennedy says he anticipates  that work on the l'hoenix' branch will  be under way. shortly���that the permission of the' government to cross  crown lands will sOon bo forthcoming.

Mr. McMillan only returned to  British, Columbia some : two weeks ,  since, after an absence of eight months  in England, during which time he succeeded in successfully forming in Loiiv  don a company to take over the Snow-  shoe mine. :It is understood that the  new company is well equipped as regards working capital... British .Columbia is not now in very "gieat favor  in London owing largely to tlie troubles  "with the Whitaker Wright group of  mines, and the only British Columbia  mining company floated in London ,  this year has been the Snowshoe Co.  Mr. G. S. AVaterlow, a director ol  the well known firm of Waterlow' __.  Sons, Ltd., of London, is one of the  principal owners in the Snowshoe, and.  it is owing very largely to his great influence in the city uf'London that the.  Snowshoe Co. was so successfully  floated. Both he and Dr. Jones; the  well known medical specialist of: Lon-:  don, are directors of the new company.;  Many Phoenix people will remember  meeting these'-'gentlemen' last year,'  when they paid a. long visit lu.the  Sriowshoe mirie,f, insi_ectlnfr.t-fee-'jirofii^  erty for themselres. ���'<������ ������������yy.;���'���  In; answer-'tqf inquiries frbni.'a I'io-  nearrepresentative as to, future plans,  Mr. McMillan said: ..  Pulling  on  More  Men.  "There is not very much' to tell.  We propose to go ahead and develop  the Snowshoe mine as quickly as pos-'  sihle. To this end we are putting on  more men. At an early date we shall  erect some new buildings. The work  of the mine is constantly increasing  and we shall require better office' and'  house accommodation than hitherto.  Up to the present it- has been our  policy to spend- the money underground rather than in surface improvements." .  in answer to further questions by  the Pioneer man Mr. McMillan-stated  that they were at present shipping a  few carloads of ore to the Greenwood  smelter, and it is intended to send  down a pretty constant supply during  the next two or three months. Further  railway7 accommodation will'be necessary in the Way of additional spurs,  and these it is understood, will be  provided at an early date. Walking  down the wagon road the Pioneer man  noticed that a "glory hole'' is being  started, and that some very fine ore is  being extracted fiom the surface of the  property, where there is a very large:  showing.

Development still'continus on different parts of the property and there is  reason to believe that at an early  date  the  Snowshoe will    enter   the   lisi of  steady   and   permanent    shippers;   in  fact it is stated by those  who uiiglit to  know that the mine is now easily  capable of furnishing a   tonnage  <>f  Horn  200 to 300 tons  per  day,'if that   were  necessary, and if the management   saw  (it   to   turn   out   that   amount.     The  Snowshoe Co., however, pieleis to develop thoroughly   before commencing  shipping mi a huge  scale, and on that  account has not   pushed shipments at  all.  There is one good feature in connection with this company, and that is  that whilst it says very little, it does  a large amount of useful work. Beyond a doubt the Snowshoe' may be  reckoned as one of the principal mines  in the Boundary country, and lor dial  matter in the province of British  Columbia. It has enormous bodies  of ore, very much the same in quality  and extent as those on the adjoining  properties, the Knob Hill and Old  Ironsides.

This is the one day in the whole  year that is devoted to a commemoration of the fact that the laborer is  worthy of his hire by it being set apart  by governments generally as a public  laboring man's holiday. In this respect the occasion is being moie and  " more recognized by even those who  are not supposed to be the friends of  labor, speaking in a broad sense���for,  unfortunately for themselves, there are  some such individuals.   '  It is not so very long-ago that the  lot, of the average working- man,  ' especially in the west, was not as comfortable as it is,now found lo be in a  largenumber of localities. But in the  far east, .ajrd in the laige cities, on  .both sides' of the ocean, there is yet  much to be "done tol ameliorate the  conditions of the average worker for  his daily bread. Such questions are  being taken up more and more-by.  those who have a deep interest in these  subjects, and the investigations are  gradually resulting in an improvement  '��� of the conditions surrounding the  toiler.  It is not many years since the yearly  holiday of Labor Day was instituted,  and it is significant that each year  brings a more pronounced observation  of the occasion.' It makes one more  holiday���of vyhich we have 1 not, too  many���a holiday that employers as  well as employees are glad to'observe.  Now, all over the Dcminion ol Canada and' the United Stales this day  is becoming to he more and more  recognized.  In the Boundaiy country, up to this  time, the relations of the laboung man  with his employer- have been of the  most cordial kind, and there is no  reason-"to. think that there will'be any  , change in these amicable relations in  the future. In this respect, at least,  we differ from many mining communities, and it is to be hoped, and it  is believed, that this state of things  will continue.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS.

There is a redeeming feature to the  mine managers' memorial, and that is  that the tax on ore should be abolished or at least readjusted.  If press reports are true, the Hill-  Moigan combination will shortly have  control of the C. P. R. It is almosl  time for this bit of news to be denied.  France is trying to run a bluff on  the wily old Sultan of Turkey, to secure payment of an old account. It  is to be hoped that it.may be made to  stick. '"  Here is a public spectacle and a  national disgrace. On the one hand  ���the poor tiackmen on the C.P.R. are  contending for a beggaily $1.75 per-  day, and on the other the company  diiectors meet and declare big dividends.���Slocan Drill.  Great was the fall of Whitaker  Wright, and it looks as if it would be  a good thing for Rossland. It is too  bad that Wright did not diop out ol  sight some time ago.        ,s I  The city of Greenwood'has definitely ^decided to give the owners of tlie  B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter a bonus of  $3,600. This is not a large amount  lor such an important industiy to ask  for.  The worst wrecK in northern waters  occurred a few days since when the  Steamer Islander collided with an iceberg near Juneau, and many lives weie  lost. . A bad feature of the disaster  was the fact that the captain and pilot  were intoxicated at the time.  Woe is Rossland. - Heretofore' the  Rossland Miner has been content with  occasionally serving up its editorials  in double leaded iorm. , Now they  are given the same sort of pabulum in  double column form every day. With  its other troubles, it is unfortunate  that this should be added to the list.  Canada could well afford to thrust  zero marks into the census returns in  the room and stead of the figures  which stand for influx of Galicians  into the northwest and of Chinese  and Japanese into Biitish Columbia.  ���Toi onto Telegram.  A start has at last been made with  the construction of the bridge acioss  the Eraser River at New Westminster,  the building of which was decided upon  at last session of the legislatme. It  will he about 2,000 feet long, and cost  approximately $500,000.  It is announced, and also denied,  that a combination has been formed in  the copper tiade for the purpose ot  regulating the pi ice and putting down  competition. All the gieat coppei  produce! s of the United Stales are said  to be in'the deal, which is alleged to  be for a long term of years.���Colonist.  Phoenix : Bakery  C. W. GliEKl., Prop.

A sale of some 600 lots for taxes  will be held in Kaslo in October.  Slocan City is forming a board of  trade, and its citizens want a branch  of a chartered bank  The Hall Mines smelter, at Nelson,  ha. contracted for 3,000 tons of Arl-  ingto (Slocan) ore.  Several pulp wood companies are  applying for incotporation muer the  Biitish Columbia laws passed at the  last session of the house, which are  very favorable to the industiy.  CAN THIS BE SO?  Reports are now gaining currency  that the Dunsmuir government is attempting to place obstacles in the way  1   of the construction of the V,, V. and  E.' railway  into Phoenix.   Certain it  is that nothing is yet being done by  the contractors  on   this  part of the  line, although the railway company is  piepared to the last detail to go ahead  with the work of construction.  We are told that the  permission  of  the 'provincial  government   must  be  obtained by the  railway people before  they  can   cross  crown  lands.    This  permission, at this writing, is  not  repotted forthcoming.   Another repoit  is to the effect that the government  also takes the ground that  the section  under which the road  is being built  has expired,  and  thai it is no longer  entitled to the right of way.  Last   winter- the government  did  everything possible to prevent this V.,  V. and E. Co. fiom gelting a new  1 charter, which would carry a land subsidy, or any other kind. It was then  said that the fine Ita .an hand of the  ,C. P. 1-. was behind all the objec.ions  ' raised. At any rate, the session of the  ', legislature expired without anything  definite , being done in the matter, j Rossland's shipments  Now when the company concludes to amounted to 240 1.0ns.  Everything points to the first annual celebration of Labor Day in  Phoenix being a pronounced success.  The city will undoubtedly be filled  with visitors next Monday, not only  from jill over the Boundary but from  many points further away. The freedom of the city is extended to them.  They will be welcome, and it is safe to  say will go away wilh a belter impression of the chiet mining town of the  Boundary than ever before.  Banking Not Safe as Mialag,  The National Banker, Chicago,  notes a fact of interest to mining men.  He says: "There is yearly as much  money invested in. mining as there is  in banking, but banking does not  prove as sale or as profitable as mining. In a time of ptosperity the average banking dividends seldom exceed  8 per cent a year. That mining pio-  duces quicker and greater profits than  any other industrial pursuit is' evidenced by the scores of multi-millionaires."  ESTIMATES     FURNISHED  PHOENIX,   B.

A dispatch from (.rand Forks states  that Charles ' Ferguson. & Co., contractors, Spokane, have been .awarded  the contract lor tire '-construction, of  the entiie line of the Repui'-licand  Grand Forks railway, with the. exception of about four miles already partly  graded. The proposed road connect-  ting this smelting -center with the  Ai11e1iun.11 mining 'camps will be about  35 miles long, and according to contract must be completed tiefoi'e New-  Year's, tyo2. Mr. Ferguson has  established headquarters here, and  says he will have between two and  three thousand men at work within a  lew weeks. A portion of liis outfit  has arrived, but fouiteeir additional  car loads are expected this week. Construction camps have already been  established between here and the boundary line, four and a half miles distant, and camps three miles apart will  be located next week at all inteimedi  ate points as far south as Republic.  Tracy \V. Holland, general manage!  of the Republic and Grand Forks railway, cbnfiimed the report of the award  of the contract to Ferguson & Co.  "The contractors''outfit," said he, "in  eludes a track-laying machine capable  of laying two miles of ties and rails  daily. The Grand Forks depot will  be located on Ruckles addition, just  south and adjoining the city limns,  where connection wiil he made with  the C. I'. R. tracks. We have two  depot sites at -Republic, but have not  decided which one to accept. A  traffic arrangement with the C. V. R.  has been, effected. 1 bought all the  equipment when in the east about a  month ago. An intciniediate ship  ment of 1,000 tons of steel rails is expected to arrive in about lour weeks.  For rolling, slock .we will have two 65-  ton Baldwin locomotives and two 40  ton switching engines, two passenger  coaches, one combination baggage and  express car, 20 flat <ais, ;o box cars  and 50 of the latest improved pressed  steel ore cars of 30 ton capacity each."  Mr. Holland states that if no unforeseen difficulties arise it is the in  tenlioir of the company to run its fust  train into Republic on New- Year's day.  He estimated that Republic when provided with railway facilities will ship  at least 600 tons of ore daily lo ihe  Grand Forks smeltei for treatment.  This figure will almost be trebled within sixteen months. It is a noteworthy  fact thai'the G>cat Northern is also  busily engaged building a railway between Grand Forks and Republic. A  lively race to !>:.' the first to reach Republic will be witnessed during the ensuing three or lour months.  Similkameen to. O-Kan'zed.  A .mining dealof importance has  just been completed at Princeton  whereby a company will be formed to  work the Cousin Jack group of properties on Boulder creek.  Mr. A. Gallanger, of Wisconsin, who  has been in the district for the past  three months, will oiganize the company, which will acquire the Cousin  jack, Oshkosh, Ymir, Morning and  Winnebago claims.  -The capital stock of the company  will be $100,000, divided into 1,000,-  000 shares of ten cents each. Five  thousand shares, or halt the capital  stock, will be reserved for development  purposes.  A Credit lo the Miners.  To show the superior character of  the miners employed incite Phoenix  mines, it need only be stated, which  is a statement of fact, that they have,  approximately, $150,000Joiiijde'iosiUn,  the Eastern '['ownslYips ���'Bank- there.  This condition is not only a credit to  the'employees, but to the management.  Working men who save their earnings  are not of the class who foment labor  troubles; neither are they liable to be  blown like a leather into the ranks of  professional agitators. While they  lose none of their independence by  becoming bank depositors, they are  more careful to be assured of being  right before going into a contest with  capital.���Grand Forks News.  couple of weeks1 ago, .while they were  singing a well-known hymn, bj/-bawling out in a spirit of madness, "Let  every kindred, every tribe on this terrestrial ball, put down $2 and subscribe and we'll receipt for all." 7  Notice is hereby given that Hie partnership  heretofore subsisting between  us;  the  under-  '���'..

The provincial government has appropriated $500 for the proposed ttail  to the new coal fields' on the north  fork of the Kettle river, 75 miles from  Grand Forks. This with the grant of  $200 made by the Granby Smelter  Company and $150 from the Grand  forks'city council, will be sufficient to  enable the locators to get in their supplies. As it is now, no trail exists beyond the forks of the river, 32 miles  from Grand Forks. A horse can be  taken 20 miles further, but the last  stretch to the coal fields can only be  reached on foot. The trail construction work now in progress is in charge  of |oseph Wiseman, who discovered  the coal a month or two ago. Thus  far over 12,000. acres have been  staked.

Rumberger  Deepest Mine in Provinc.,    ��  The deepest lode mine shaft in  British Columbia is at the War Eagle  in Rossland, which has attained a  depth of 1,500 feet. The deepest  opening on the Pacific slope is on t.'.e  Cotnstock lode, at Virgina City, Nevada; where there is a shaft 3,300 feet  deep. The deepest shaft at piesent  operated on the American continent  is that of the Calumet and Hecla copper mine in Michigan .which is prac-'  tically down a mile or 5,000 feet. On  a neighboring mine a shaft is now being made which .will cut the ledge of  conglomerate at a depth of 7,500 feet  or nearly a mile and a half from the  surface. It has been supposed that  the vein can be followed from this  shaft to a depth of 18,000 feet. It is  thought by the most daring mining  engineers of the United States that  10,000 feet is the limit to which they  would dare go. The Transvaal mining engineers, however, claim that  they will encounter no great difficulty  in extending the workings in their  mines to 5,000 feet deeper than the  10,000 leet proposed by the Americans  or to a total depth of 15,000 feet.���  Nelson Daily Miner.
