the Shipping List:
Ore is being taken .out of the"■'■''Top-
foot level of the Fif. mine in blocks
weighing approximately half a ton each,
accoidiii" to Charles Dempster, general
managei of the Fife Minesi. Limited.
The property, which, is located 30 miles
east of l'hoenix, is producing rich copper ore, with values in gold and stiver.
Mr. Dempster suites the clean ore
dumps are a veiy fine sight and believes it is as line ore as has ever been
mined i i the piovince. The results
of some 30 assays of these dumps had
given an average of 5.3 per cent, copper and $4.20 gold. A very careful
average taken through the face of the
slope last week gave a result of 7.5
per cent., copper apart from gold and
silver values. Another sample from
an accumulated pile of ore during the
previous two days showed 10 per cent,
oopperin addition to values in gold
and silver. ■■.■•■.'.
1-ieore in the stopewas at present,
continued Mr. Dempster, six feetJiin
width with a large body of lower gride-
ore, b t of commercial value alongside.
This latter body has been crosscut for
nearly 30 feet, all in ore, the values
ranging from $5 to $15 in copper and
gold. ..This crosscut was now being
driven with a view to encountering the
boundary or hanging wall.
At various points in the tunnel run
in for nearly 600 feet on the vein,
\alues have been obtained of 5 per
cent, copper and as high as $18 and
even^$2_,in gold. ■'; To get a true knowledge of this huge deposit crosscuts at
frequent intervals will be, immediately
lun. The showing at the ' glory hole,
where the rich sulphides come right to
the surface, is a sight worth seeing, said
Mr. Dempster.
'I he new kitchen and dining.hall/is
now complete and is up-to-date "in
every particular, more nearly resembling the accommodation of a good
hotel than a miuirig;camp, but it is in
line w:th th. management's desire, to
give every comfort and convenience to
its employees. The best possible equipment has been installed in The assay
office whichis an immense convenience:
The company is only awaiting the

duct in earnest.     V V     '
Several large blocks.of chalcopyrite
ore from tne Fife property, recently assayed ran 1 5 per cent, copper in addition 10 gold and silver. Ches from
the mine also carry considerable values
in azurite.
Smith Is Wanted
The Police of Vernon have offered a
reward ol $250 for the arrest of Alex.
Smith, who is wanted in connection
with the burning of the Okanagan
hotel, at Vernon, in which eleven lives
were lost. It is said that Smith disappeared from Vernon immediately
after the fire. He is 5 feet 9 inches in
height, smooth shaven, of dark complexion, pale face, with a hole on tbe
left jaw, 35 years old, slim build, and
weighs 160 pounds.
Inspect Trackage and Proposed
David E. McNicoll of Montreal,
v.ce-president of the C.P.R., who is on
his annual tour of inspection of the
company's lines through British Columbia, was a visitor in l'hoenix on
Monday. He was accompanied by F.
F. Busteed of Vancouver, general
superintendent of the Pacific Division;
R. A. Pine of Nelson, master mechanic,
and Allan Purvis, local superintendent.
They arrived by special train and after
making a general inspection of local
trackage left for Rossland.
They also inspected ihe route ol
the proposed line to Wellington camp,
as well as the proposed siding to the
Consolidated company's Phoenix Amalgamated mine. Everything is in
readiness to construct the latter, but it
is understood the company have not
vet secured the authority of the railway
commission to proceed. It is probable
the matter will be considered by the
commission when they meet at Nelson
about November 1st.
VV. J. Camp, of Montreal, inspector
of C.P.R. telegraphs, and Mrs. Camp,
and J. Wilson, superintendent at Vancouver, also arrived with the railwa)
officials. They were guests at the
Brooklyn hotel during the afternoon,
driving to Greenwood in  the evening

The syndicate operating the E/P.TJ.
property "are"'prosecuting developm'ent
with the expectation of striking' a vein
very soon. Tunnelling to the extent
of 1260 feet has been done, and work
is-now being done 346 feet below the
collar of the shaft. The tunnel of the
E.Pi U.' is  the* longest of any small
^property  in  the  Boundary, and   will
ipermit of a fine gravity system for
handling   the   output.    Ore   shipped
:from the property  several years  ago
•netted $66 per ton.
The Riverside claim on the West
Fork, near Rock Creek, held by the
Perkins estate, was bonded during the
past week to John H Arnold, of Col
umbus, Ohio, for $16,000. The bond
calls for a concentrating plant to be
erected on the property , within four
months and the payments extend over
two years. Considerable development
work was done on the claim in 1907
when the property was under bond to
a Phoenix syndicate. Ninety tons -of
sample ore were shipped, with very
satisfactory results.
The recent firmness of British-Columbia Copper is due to the reopening
of the mines, and the fact the company
expects to. enjoy a good .production
within a comparatively short time,
comments a N.Y. financial paper. It
•has been stated that the company can
lay copper in New York for 7.963c. a
pound, which includes mining, smelting,
transportation, selling commission and
other expenses. Insiders have been
keeping the price down with a view to
buying a quantity of tbe stock, and
since Adolph Lewishon became a director* in the company, several new purchasers have appeared in the market.
The directors have planned to declare
a dividend when a surplus of somewhat over. $20.0,000 shall be collected,
and this would have been done some
while ago, if the strike and other difficulties in the price of the metal had
not prevented. .
Attractive ^ Progr^inof Sports
Now About Completed j
A The various committees in charge
of the big Miners'; Union, picnic tri
Phoenix on Labor, Day are working
diligently tomake'ihe"event the most
successful in the history of l'hoenix
union celebrations. The spl.ndid
program of sports and ; attractions is
now about completed, and there is
every reason to expect that all visitors,
to Phoenix on Sept. ^th-will spend an
enjoyable day. f>     '
: Among the leading- attractions, will
be baseball matches. It is not defi;
nitely known as yet what teams will
participate, but. as a purse of $115 is
hung up, divided into two prist s, there
is no doubt* matches between some
good teams from ' (the^ sun ounding
cities may be looked for.4 ... .•
Attractive posters have been distributed through outlying districts that
"they who run may read," and before
the end of next week complete program.
of. the sports will be -issued for the
benefit of all interested in- the picnic.
Every businessman in. Phoenix should
see that he is represented in the pro-,
gram for it will be carefully examined
by hundreds of visitors as well as home
people. '

Oraobv Consolidated
the   end   of   August,
With the end of August, eight
months will have elapsed since there
has been a disbursement on the shares
of the Granby Co. Notwithstanding
this, stockholders hold tenaciously to
their shares and a price better than
par is maintained, says the News
The bulk of Granby's shares is
closely held. Among those credited
with large holdings are J. J. Hill, the
First National Bank of New York, the
American Metal and Nichols Copper
companies, and H. L. Higginson, of
[,ee'__ Higginson, New York.
During 190S the company paid two
dividends of $2 each, the last one in
December. Expenditures have been
made for enlargement of the   smelting
ilant   to   a   capacity   of  40,000,00c
iiounds or more.
There  is   one disadvantage   which
icts against Granby ranking with tin
'mvest cost producers—the distanct
•rom  eastern   refineries  and markets.
hereby necessitating a long haul foi
itfie company's product.
Fires In the Boundary
Bush fires have been raging in many
parts of the interior and did considerable damage in the Bpundaryduring the
past week. On Tuesday night 5060
ties were destroyed at Fisherman, near
Eholt. Further destruction of property was pre-ented by a gang of men,1
who were repairing a bridge at that
point," taking prompt action and worked
all night. The engine of a^passing
freight train was pressed into service
and hauled water from a nearby supply,
thus saving another pile of '5000 ties.
Fire raged in the vicinity Of the Bonanza
mine on the North Fork, but the mine
buildings were kept safe. The Koo.t
enay Power company's lines were also
threatened early in the week.
Elected Over John Mcintosh
on Thursday
James G. McKeown was on Thursday elected to fill the vacancy in the
city council for the east ward over John
Mcintosh by a majority of 12 votes.
A comparatively small per centage of
ratepayers voted, there being a general
feeling that either of the men would
make a good alderman, while the best
of feeling existed between the candidates. Seventy-two votes were cast,
42 for Mr. McKeown and 30 for Mr.
Mr. McKeown is one of the oldest
property owners in Phoenix, is familiar
with the conditions of the city and th.
requirements of a civic official and
should make a decided acquisition to
the aldermanic board.
The bye-election was necessitated by
the declaring vacant of P. J. Cook't
seat on account of prolonged  absence.

Haywood, the ex-secretary of  the Western Federation of Miners.  A review of the W.F. of M. with an  account of the great trial at Boise was  the theme upon which Mr. Haywood  spoke for two hours. He made a  strong plea in favor of Socialism. He  did not ask his auditors, however, to  vote for the Socialist paity until they  were coiiviuct-d it was the best course  to pursue.  Mr  Haywood told how the Western  Federation of Miners was born in 1892  amid  much trials and   tribulal.ons  in  the Panhandle of Idaho, with  the idea  of having a strong organization  which  would include  all   the   mines   of  the  West.    Its main   objects   were to  in  ciease   wages,   shoit_n   the   hours  of  those engaged and to  generally  better  the condition of its members.    This  aroused   strong    opposition   of   mine  owneis,   and   war,   he   declared, had  been carried on vigorously against  the  organization.    He reviewed tbe strikes  in Idaho and Colorado, the calling out  of the troops and the turmoil  which  followed.    Then followed a recital  of  the arrest of Moyer, Pettibone and himself at Denver on a charge of muider  in which they were rushed into Idaho  without authority of  law.    The  irons,  the chains, the cells in which they were  confined were  vividly describfd.    He  paid his respects to   McPartland   and  Orchard, desciibing theni   as the Kirg  and Prince of detectives.    Detectives,  he asset ted, were the meanest men on  earth.  He thanked the unions everywhere  for raising the splendid fund to fight the  legal battle and prove their innocence  The meeting concluded with cheers for  the speaker.
