Donnelly, of Toronto, representing the Canadian Mining Journal,  spent three or four days in camp this  week. He is on a tour uf the Dominion in the interests of his publication, and is endeavoring to visit'every  working mine in this province^ He  states that his publication is having a  very successful career, being well received throughout Canada.  That all'tHefc-H--. things in a mineral  way have not been picked up in the  Boundary, nor in Phoenix camp and  its vicinity, is being proved every little  while"-^nd(lsy:i being, proved in the  most _atisfactory_mafiher by some one  of: the four larger ^companies operating  in the-Boundary semiring' them, under  option or bond. < Last year a syndicate  of coast capit^li-t..* took a bond  on,some 40 claims'in this locality,  surrounding;,on,the,north .and east the  Granby, Dominion --and Consolidated  C6.'_ mines. This fl syndicate headed  by 'A. C. Flumerfelt," of Victoria, formerly in the Granby' Co., wished for  time to prospect the claims by diamond drilling or/.otherwise, before  making a substantial.payment, but the  owners could hot see it that way, and  would grant no extension of the orignal  options. . As a result the options that  had been granted tql J; L..Martin by  a good deal of effort .were allowed to  lapse:  V- V: ���;���-������. :-Af.   :-  Since that .time a number of the  claims in question have been taken  under bond, the Pioneer noting a few  weeks ago that a big bunch had been  taken over.by . the: Consolidated Co.  about the time they, bought the War  Eagle group; ownedj by the Phoenix  Amalgamated Copper Mines, Ltd.  Within a few weeks a number of  other deals have Ibeen made in the  same locality, and this time the large  companies are again taking hold, getting- for- the most pah, several ������ months  or a. year in. which^tQ prospect the  prape__itf.__af^  Comparatively little is going7 on at  the Providence mine just at present. -7;  The electric drive was tried on the  Snowshoe compressor for the first time  this week.

Transfeis of realty continue to take  place in Phoenix each   week, and for|  copper ; companies . .are- leaching  out for more acreage,: shows, that  notwithstanding-, the .increase of  smelting capacity all around, the  directors of these companies have an  eye to the future, and even with literally millions of tons of payable copper  ore already developed and in shape to  be measured, they realize that in time  all things have an end,.and that, while  the copper ore of our mines will, in all  probability,* last for scores of years,  they propose to be on the safe side.  The result is that options have been  taken recently on 15 or 20 claims by  the Consolidated Co., the Granby Co.  and the British Columbia Copper Co.,  the ground extending over towards  Summit camp from Phoenix.

Several cars of Snowshoe ore, consigned to the Trail smelter, were spilled  in a wreck Tuesday on the C. P. R.  near Robson.  The contractors in the Curlew-Gold  Drop raise for the Granby Co., are  now up about 170 feet, having some  70 feet further to raise. -  A force of men is at work doing  some surface development for . the  Granby Co.'on the Bullion claim, on  the north side of this camp.  According to announcement, B. C.  Copper Co.'s No. i dividend is payable next Wednesday, Sept. 4th, from  the New York office. It amounts to  about $200,000. ,' . ���  Active development will soon be  started on the Minnie Moore claim by  the B.C. Copper Co., the property  being an extension of the Emma and  Jumbo claims of the same group in  Summit camp.  This week Murdock Mclntyre successfully landed the large compressor,  recently arriving from Rossland, at the  War Eagle mine, which -property is  being most actively operated by the  Consolidated Co.  The new bunkhouse at the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Emma mine, Summit  camp, is being constructed, almost en  tirely. fromJumbe^  the most part, if not already improved,  the purchasers buy with the intention  of improving at no distant date.  The most important transfer that  has taken place for some time in Phoenix was the purchase this week of the  Dominion hotel on Old Ironsides  avenue, by J. L. Martin. This hotel  has some 30 rooms, and is one of the  large buildings in the city. It was  built in the year 1900, and has always  been conducted as a hotel, it being the  most pretentious of the city's host-  leries during its early life. It was  built by .the B. C. Hotel Co., Ltd.,  and had several managers until the  Yale-Columbia Lumber Co. took it  under morgage, passing later to the  Bowman Lumber Co., the successor to  the Yale-Columbia concern. The  Bowman people are the sellers, the  price not being made public, but being  understood to be under $5,000. Mrs.  P. L. McKelvey has had the building  rented for a couple of years or more,  the bar being conducted by Frank  Anderson.  Frank Knott has purchased the  vacant lot on Old Ironsides avenue  diagonally opposite the residence of J.  L. Martin, and Richard Silverthorne  has bought the lot adjoining that of  Mr. Knott. Mr. Silverthorne already  has lumber on the ground for the construction of a five room residence,  which he will occupy with his family  when finished.  Bjner & Sons, of the Phoenix Brewing Co., have work under way on an  addition, 20x40.feet in size, which will  be .used as a bottling works, the  machinery now used for that purpose  on lower Dominion avenue, to be  moved to the new addition when ready  for use.  George Huston has completed his  double flat on Knob Hill avenue, and  it is already occupied. Mr. Huston  tells the Pioneer that, from the applications he has had to rent, he could  rent about one hundred more houses  similar to this one.  I pany's Monte Cristo group, all on  the  north side of Phoenix.;  _.  The B. C Gopper Goi^ has secured  bondson the Undine and Mary B., in  Summit camp, and it is understood  has also secured control of the Diamond Joe group of five claims, adjoining the Monte group bonded by the  Granby Co.       ��� f ;  The Consolidated Co. has secured  bonds on eight or ten claims, some of  which adjoin the present Snowshoe  group. The new claims include the  Midnight, Joker fraction, Ethel Verne  fraction, Dreadnaught, Gipsy, and the  Nos. 1, 2, 3, and 4 claims.  All of the above claims are yet in  the prospective stage, .and the companies have not been disposed to  name fancy prices in the bonds, although the figures are not given out  about any of them at this time.  mine, same camp.  Some 30 or 35 men are now at  work at the War Eagle. The old main  shaft has been pumped out and the  700 feet of workings at the 100-foot  level investigated. An old prospecting  shaft is also being deepened.  The s 17-foot trestle on the new  Victoria spur of the Great Northern,  has been practically completed, and  another two or three weeks or less  should see this line completed to the  terminal and prepared to take ore from  this outlet.  Last Saturday the first ore from the  Granby's new Victoria shaft was shipped to the company's smelter via the  C. P. R. The new crusher and belt  conveyor in connection both worked  very smoothly and satisfactorily to .the  management.  It may be stated this week that the  outlook for an improved coke supply  for the district smelters is looking  somewhat better, though not, by any  means, all that it should be yet. Still,  ten out of the fourteen blast furnaces  in Boundary's three smelters have been  in operation this. week, and a little  more coke is coming in than heretofore.*"' .. j_  At the urgent suggestion of the  boards of trade of Nelson and Kaslo,  the provincial government sent the  deputy minister of mines, R. F.Tolmie,  to investigate the : causes: of > the < coke  shortage. Last, Sunday Mr. ;Tolmie  was m Grand Forks, find the next day  reached Greenwood. Then he came  to Phoenix, whence he went to Trail  and Nelson, and then on' into Easf  Kootenay to the coal fields themselves,  to see the actual conditions and what  truth there is in the statement that  coke in considerable quantities' had  been exported when British Columbia  smelters were going without it. . Mr  Tolmie, naturally, had nothing to say  till after he had made his report to the  government, but there is every reason  to believe that his investigation will  result in good. -���.-.>'.,.  The Nelson News states that the  customs returns show that the Crow's  Nest Pass Co. has exported this year  2 7.594 tons of coke. But how much  of this was sent to; the'. Northort  smelter, to treat British Columbia ores,  is not given out.  Taking it all in all, the investigation  should be productive of good results,  and the Crow's Nest Pass - Coal Co.  should be penalized  the  full  $2'per  Clow SeaMO For Birds.

Last week's British Columbia Gazette contains official notice of the  appointment of Alfred S. Hood as  police magistrate for the city of Phoe  nix, Mr. Hood having been officiating  as acting police magistrate for several  months,since W.R.Williams left forSas  katchewan. The appointment is in accordance with the recommendation  sent in by the ci��y o>unciI some weeks  since.  Coke is coming in better at the  Granby smelter, five furnaces having  been kept in blast all this week. After  Labor Day Manager Hodges expects  to blow in another furnace. An order  has again been placed in the east for  coke by the Granby Co.,' to supplement the provincial supply.  Twelve men are employed at the  Independence mine, which was bonded  last fall by the Granby Co. for $160,-  000. The property is at the head of  Bear Creek in the Similkameen  country, and during the winter and  summer a long tunnel has been driven  several hundred feet, with the object  of tapping the lead at depth. The  property is a copper proposition, with  a large surface showing.  Diamond drilling has been in, progress at the B. C. Copper Co.'s .Oro  Denoro mine for some time past, and  is being extended into the Mary B.  claim, one of the properties bonded by  the company. It is'reported that a  considerable body of ore, not hereto  fore known, has been uncovered by  stripping on the Oro Denoro, to the  south of the No. 1 quarry, which will  add not a little to the ore reserves ot  the mine.  porting coke'When provincial  smelters  are running short.  Where Skee Ptackea Want.  Although the Granby smelter has  been running five furnaces this week,  it has been with the greatest difficulty  that the B. C. Copper Co. smelter was  able to keep two furnaces in blast, so  precarious was the coke supply. Indeed, last Sunday the entire battery  was banked, and it is a hand to mouth  matter every day. Manager McAllister  states that things must improve materially or the plant is likely to close for  some little time.     ,,  At the Dominion Copper Co.'s  smelter, the three furnaces have been  kept busy, but even then there is no  coke to spare, and they have to hustle  it along from Coleman as fast as possible, whence this supply comes.  Manager Thomas is now paying special  attention to this phase of the matter.  BACK FROM VISIT  TO COBALT CAMP  G. W. Rumberger Thinks It  Great District.  Thursday evening.George; W. Rumberger returned from a seven weeks'  trip, during; which time he visited  Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Gobal.,  New York, Chicago and Denver.    ��  Speaking of Cobalt, Mr. Rumberger  states that the camp is making good  and the district is undoubtedly a rich  mineral' country, notwithstanding the  large amount of wildcatting that-has  been done there. The miners'strike  was on there at the time, but most of  the mines were getting as "many men  as were wanted. He met T. R.  Drummond, .formerly in charge of the  Dominion Copper Co. here, and manager of the great Nipissing mine, the  biggest shipper of the district, where  some 300 men are employed. He also  met other Greenwood men, including  I. Robert Jacobs, W.H. Jeffrey, and  Waltei Morrison, formerly secretary  of Phoenix Miners' Union, No. 8. Mr.  Rumberger spent some three weeks in  the Montreal river country, north and  west of Cobalt, where Pete .Boucher,  formerly of. Phoenix, has: made, some  locations, for him. It is understood  that Mr. Rumberger has already made  some money with, prospects in that  country.  In Toronto he found the banks all  saying that money is tight, and calling  in their loans. In New York there  did not seem to be so much of a financial scare as in Canada, though the  summer dullness, usual at this time,  was evident. .   ;  In Chicago Mr.' Rumberger talked  with a large user of copper regarding  the price of the red metal. This  manufacturer employs 766 or 800  hands, and said that, thus far, he had  not been able to get much of a concession in the price of the copper he is  constantly using, and the impression  seemed to prevail, among those most  conversant with the situation, that cop  per would not get much below 18  cents per pound and might go even  better than that. -  Secretary James, of the Eagles, expects the new band instruments to  arrive today by express from Toronto.  Sam White, the new instructor, who  has been engaged, will arrive here  from Hoquiam, Wash., about the 13th  ol September. He comes very highly  recommended.  Started New Wagaa Road.  E. Spraggett, road foreman, received  word from Government Agent S. IjL  'Almond, ofGrand Forks^ this-;week,"to  proceed with the work of building the  new wagon road, to avoid the mining  operations at the Snowshoe, Curlew,  Gold Drop and Rawhide mines. The  road will be about two and a half mjles  in length, and from the C. P. R. crossing in Phoenix to Hartford Junction  there will be no railway crossings,  there being half a dozen dangerous  crossings on the present road.  The decision to proceed is the result  of the agitation that has been carried  on by the mining companies and the  citizens of Phoenix for the last few  months, and follows the inspection of  the proposed route by F. C. Gamble,  the government engineer, last week.  Mr. Spraggett has now a dozen or  more men employed, which force will  be increased to twenty as soon as they  can be had. The time of completion  will depend entirely on the number of  men he can secure, but five or six  weeks should see it well on toward the  finish. There is considerable rock  work on the route.

Smith, trainmaster of the  Great Northern, was here Monday  evening, to investigate the cause of the  ore-passenger train wreck that occurred  a week ago between Glenside and  Denoro, when nine ore cars were derailed, three being demolished. Mr.  Smith brought his stenographer, C. F.  Greiser, with him from Spokane, and  after visiting the scene of the wreck,  the trainmen were examined regarding  the occurrence. R. Sheedy, road-  master, was also present. As nearly  as could be learned, the spill was  caused by the breaking of a wheel on  one of the C. P.

Following are some general-remarks  made by ,G. L. Walker���,geologis|,., o��  Boston;;, regarding ore fopmations.* iri  tthe -., Boundary, -. after- a . visit i,; to -this  district:  There is evidence that the coppeir  ore deposits of :the! Boundary -were  formed in a comparatively recent ged-  logical period. The ore is in its  primary or original state. There is  not as much secondary enrichoienti  oxidation ^nd'ileachingSin.'theiehtire  district as may be found in one acre of  ground in Butte,'Globe or'Bi��bee. If  is a safe estimate that 99% of all the  copper being.mined.by, the three leading companies occurs in chalcopyrite  form. This mineral 'comes to the very  surface, and in one instance I saw it  protruding, when the dirt had.been removed-from ian ore deposit. (  In a few places the ore 'show?  weathering to a depth of a few inches,  and" aziirite, vmf-lacbite,*. bqrinite and  other mineralsi Of copper^: occur in very  small quantities. Three theories are  advanced by different geologists to ex,  plain this absence of secondary enrichment: First; the. ore: is bf-.very: recent  occurrence; second, the cold climate is  opposed to rapid oxidation, and leaching; third, leaching did occur previous  to the recent glacial period, and? the  capping and secondary enrichment  zone were ground off by the glaciers,  leaving the primary ore exposed' It  is probable that all three factors, contributed to bring about the condition  which now exists.  ' The absence of secondary enrichment accounts for the very low grade  of the Boundary ores.: On' the-:other  hand, it simplifies the mining and  smelting, and contributes to the invest  ment character of the mining; enterprises. There is good reason'; for the  prediction that all the mines operating  iii the district a generation hence will  be.handling-ore which will :yield.within  r to 2 pounds of copper and' 10 to 20  cents- per- ton- ingold-and-silver-of-what  are being secured today. The ore  bbdiesf are being' minejd; already! j about  as deep as they goj their position," as a-  rule, being, more on less.-/flat, and all  the way-from. the surface to a depth of  1,000 feet. Were it snot ;for tbe, fact  that the ore is, usually' 26b" of rriore  feet thick, itE--cami-Kori_;ontal"~pOSttlOtt  would 1 operate Hagainst :lowijmining  costs.:  Because of; the uniform character of  the Boundary ores, it is possible that  some method'' of water or magnetic  concentration may eventually be used  before, smeltingrrtherpby -:grea..y re"  diicirig production costs.  The ideal way to operate the Boundary mines would be to smelt all the  ore in one plant.-thus" economizing in  management, clerical forces, laboratories, sampling mills;- traveling s expenses, freight, 1 and in many other  directions. The logical outcome of  conditions developing here nowr will be  an ultimate consolidation of the seyerkl  operating companies. Notwithstanding  alUthree companies are? strong enough  to:., go alone, the^vwouldn do better  united.  The Electric Aje.,  Just astheNirieteehth Century iwas  the Age of Steel* the Twentieth Century, in its beginning at least, is i the  Age of Electricity, and electricity! demands copper in ever increasingyquain-  tities. For the last six decades of the  Nineteenth Century, says the Copper  Handbook, published by,-Horace J.  Stevens, of Houghton, Michigan,! the  production of the leading metals increased at the rate ��� of almost (exactly  6^_ per cent., compounded yearly; but  in the last decade of the century, copper left the other metals behind,land  for fifteen years past the average ratio  of irffcrease in copper production has  been 8 per cent, compounded yearly.  This difference of onlyione and ones  half per cent, in the ratio of yearly increase, may seem small, but like the  fable of the horse's shoes, for which  sthe first nail brought a penny, andeach  nail thereafter was doubled in price,  the cumulative results are surprising,  and at the end of fifteen years have  run into hundreds of millions 1 of  dollars. In 1881, a quarter century  past, the world's production of copper  was 163,000 long tons,* worth an .average of 18 cents per pound, giving a  total value of- $65,000,000, in round  figures, while at the- present moment  the copper mines of the world are producing at the rate of nearly 800,000  tons per annum, worth, with copper at  a little more than twenty cents per  pound, one million dollars for everyday in'the year, or at the rate of $365,-  000,000 for 1906���an increase of almost five-fold in the world's copper  bill,-in a quarter of a:century. With  electricity finding new uses daily and  with a rapid extension of electric  energy for ��� power, traction, and many  other employments, there is small hope  that the poor old world will be able to  curtail its copper bill to any important  ,��xtent; and every reason to believe  I that,. the ����� world's copper, ten years  hence, will cost considerably more  than the world's iron and steel cost ten  years- ago.
