What was by all odds the most destructive railway wreck in the his'.ory  of ore hauling from the mines of Phoenix or in the Boundary, occured last  Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock, on the  Phoenix branch of the C. P. R. and  while fortunately no li\es were lost, the  loss to the C.P.R. cannot fail to be  near $50,000, as 24 loaded ore cars  were reduced into kindling wood in a  few minutes and one of the fine Shay  engines, used exclusively in ore hauling, was badly wrecked also. -  It appears thai a full train of 25 ore  cars, with a caboose and Shay engine  No. 1901, were going down the steep  grade from Hartford Junction to Eholt,  with conductor Halpenny in charge,  Al Kenwood being the engineer, and  Chas. Hackett the fireman. When  some distance above the Oro Denoro  mine, and below Williams spur it was  evident that the air brakes on the cars  had failed to work, and the heavy train  was beyond control, rushing down a  steep grade to destruction as fast as  about 750 tons of Granby ore and the  increasing momentum could take it.  The train crew on: and all, after trying  to stop the train with the hand brakes,  and realizing that only death was  ahead to stay with the train, quickly  -selected .10ft spots atid jumped " to  safety, none of the crew being hurt.  The brakeman were J. Reid and Wm.  Toat.  In the meantime the momentum  increased and tlie engine lost both its  cylinders half a mile or a mile above  the wreck, which railway men claim  can only happen when a speed exceed  ing 46 miles an hour has been attained  When the runaway tram arrived at the  cut close to the Oro Denoro' mine, in  Summit camp, the engine jumped the  track and blocked it, the ore cars soon  piling up and being reduced to small  pieces, although the last ore car and  caboose remained on the rails. The  track itself was spread and torn up for  ioo:yards or more, the telegraph lines  were broken and traffic was completely  blocked till yesterday.  All of the motive power and rolling  stock happened to be on the other side  of the wreck, so that no passenger or  other trains could operate to and from  Phoenix. Consequently, the passenger  run to this city was cancelled, and  passengers and mail were brought to  this city by teams from Eholt or  Greenwood.  can be put in service again in the  course of time. It was the first of the  three Shays that were placed in commission on the Phoenix hill, and has  done much seruice in the last three  years. Over and through the entire  wreck the 750 tons or more of Old  Ironsides and Knob Hill ore. is scattered and piled and flung to the four  |K)ints of the compass.  It is said that, according to custom,  when the train reached Williams sid-  mg, a stop was made to allow the  brake shoes to cool 01T, after coming  down half of the steep hill from Phoenix. Before a start was made the  brakes were examined, and were apparently all right, bUt shortly after getting under headway Engineer Ken-  ward tried the air, and found that evidently jt would work, for only two or  three cars of the long train. He at  once whistled for down brakes, and  the train crew of three did their best  to apply the hand brakes. Before they  could take effect, however, the heavy  train had gained such momentum that  it was apparent nothing could stop it,  and it would have to go to destruction.  Then all hands jumped off at the first  convenient place arfd saved their lives.  Eye witnesses assert that the train  must have attained a speed of from 60  to 100 miles an hour before becoming  derailed.  Hundreds of persons from Eholt  and Phoenix have_. visited the wreck,  which is the worst} in the history of  railroading in this&ec'ion, the Granby  mines being practically closed Thursday, as no ore could he shipped. One  enterprising photographer, Jas. McRae,  of Phoenix, took: se\eral excellent  views of the wreck.  How the angle cock got turned that  let th'e air out of that ore car, ar:d  brought on the accident, is not known,  but some think it was done, perhaps  unwittingly, by some one stealing a  ride on the train. ,If so, the victim is  buried in the wreck. This will only  be determined vihen the wreck is  cleared away, and it is possible that  the -steam wrecker from Revelstoke  will be brought donn-to the Boundary  for that purpose.

The  increase has been from $t}b to %i%  per share.  Proems at Ihe Mlaes.  At the properties of the Montreal  and Boston, that is, at the Brooklyn  mine, in this camp, on which the chief  effort is being concentrated at first, as  it is to be the largest shipper of the  several groups���the work of getting  ready for extensive shipments is steadily  progressing. The main incline shaft  is being enlarged to accommodate the  skip, and at the same time retimbered.  This work has now progressed upwards  GRANTED AID   ���>.  TO HOSPITAL  Qty   Council Gives   $50 Per  Months  AT WEDNtSDAVS WEEKU   MEETING  Building Around Ihe Wreck.  All of the extra workman available  were quickly put at work by the C. P.  R. in building the trestle around the  wreck, which occurred close to the  'Denoro townsite. Divisional Engineer  R. A. Bainbridge, of Nelson, Road-  master H. L. Johnson,, of Greenwood,  and Supt. J. S. Lawrence, of Nelson,  gave their personal attention to the resumption of traffic as quickly as possible. Early yesterday morning the  temporary track was finished by Ed.  McGrade's evtra gang and Foreman  Carlson's bridge crew, and trains were  once more run to Phoenix.  A visit to the wreck by the Pioneer  man shows it to have been a most  complete affair, as far as destroying the  rolling stock of the railway company is  concerned. The huge Shay locomotive is lying on its side,' its ponderous  maehinery twisted and scattered and  much of it buried under several of the  24 ore cars and their contents, which  piled up at the entrance of the cut  when the runaway train left the rails  after its mad flight of a couple of miles  or more.  The ore cars themselves are. broken  into such small pieces, that, with the  exception of some of the trucks and  wheels, they are rendered absolutely  useless. It is possible that the locomotive, with the. expenditure of a few  thousand dollars in the machine shop,  SILVER CLOUD  LOOKS GOOD  Boiler  Was   Installed  Week.  This  SHAFT IS NOW DOWN FORTY FEbT  Looks Belter, For Work Done, Than Other  High Grade Claims That Have Become  Profitable.  James McCreath, who, with L. A  Smith, Ale* Robinson and Charles  Johnson, have a lease and bond on  the Silver Cloud claim, in Skylark  camp, for $10,000, was in the city  this week, and stated that the development work thus far done on the property had been most encour-ging. The  shaft is now down about 40 feet, and  the values are increasing with depth.  The latest assays give $470 in gold,  silvei and lead for the first class ore,  and $37 for the second class ore, and  a trial shipment will be made at no  distant date.  A boiler was taken to. the property  this week, to aid in the development,  and the lessees have reason to think  that they have a. splendid mining  proposition. Those who are familiar  with the high grade claims of the  Boundary state that no equally good  showing has been made on any of the  successful high grade mines of this  section at the same depth. The property was bonded from Duncan Ross,  A. S. Black, I. H. Hallett, and John  Nelson, all of Greenwood, and adjoins  two or three other high grade claims  that are being successfully worked  thus far.  I). McD. Hunter, of Greenwood,  received the appointment as principal  of the Kaslo public school.  Road Foreman Findlay has of late  done excellent work in repairing the  Greenwood-Eholt wagon road.

Regarding the Brooklyn it is given  out that this mine has 350,000 tons of  ore practically ready for shipment,  which can be placed on the cars at a  cost of $1.25 per ton. Average values  for smelting returns are given at 2 per  cent copper, . 1 ounce gold .3 ounce  silver, average value $5.62 per ton.  Cost of mining and smelting, $3.05  per ton, with a net profit of $2.57 per  ton. Total area, 170 acres, and equipment equal to handling at least 500  tons per day.  Morrison group is in the shape to  ship 150 tons per day, with 200,000  tons in sight. Ore can be placed on  cars when the spur is built for $1.25  per ton, and on account of containing  2c per cent sulphur, is specially desirable for fluxing. Average smelter returns show .2 ounces gold, from .5 to  1 ounce silver and .6 per cent copper.  Average value $4.05 per ton. Cost of  mining and smelting $2.90 per ton;  profit $1.15 per ton.  In the Athlestan-Jackpot there are  100,000 tons in sight, which;-can-be-  mined at 60 cents per ton, being on  the open quarry system. Ores run  from .2 to .8 ounces in gold and .5 to  .7 ounces silver, and can be mined and  smelted at $3.40 per ton. Ores  average $7.50 per ton, leaving profit of  $4.50 per ton. This profit will be increased by $1 per ton as soon as the  spur to the mine is completed.  The Mountain Rose in Summit  camp is much of the same character  ore as the Sunset, in Deadwood camp,  all owned by the company, and  valuable chiefly as fluxes, having large  excesses of iron, with some gold, silver  and copper values. Both have an  immense tonnage of this ore that can  be cheaply quarried.  As is well known the company's  smelter is located at Boundary Falls,  about four miles below Greenwood,  and now has a daily capacity of 650  tons daily, with two furnaces. The  third furnace on the ground will make  a capacity of 1,000 tons daily, when  the smelting costs would be $1.50 per  ton. During 1903 this smelter treated  112,226 tonsofore,pr._ducing 2,551,142  pounds of refined copper, 7,705 ounce*  of gold, and 58,72s ounces of silver.  This was the result, however, of operating one furnace 2SS and two furnaces  11 o days.  Estimated Earn'ngs.  It is estimated that, in order to obtain the best results from a metallurgical standpoint, with four furnaces in  operation, the daily charge would consist approximately of the following:  Dominion Copper ore...700 tons  Morrison... 150    "  Athelstan 120    "  Sunset              V , .1  MountainRo.se/" ���������"���'  Total.,,,,..,.,,., 1,200 tons  Such a charge, when everything is  in full running order, would, it is  claimed, make a profit of $2,511.50  per day or $916,697.50 per annum,  being 14 per cent, on the par value of  the stock issued.  All allowance for slag losses, freight  and refining charges, etc., have been  deducted from the above figures, and  no estimate has been make except on  ore actually developed and blocked  out. The freight charges are estimated  at from 15 cents to 30 cents per ton,  and that there is oro enough now  ready to last the smelter two years at  i,ooj tons per day, the smelter value  of which is over $4,000,000. In 60  days the  third   furnace,  now  on the  is being cut. The- work is necessarily  slow, but is being done in a permanent  manner, and may require three weeks  yet to finish to the surface, when shipments will at once commence.  The water is being kept out of the  Stemwinder mine, it requiring but a  few hours each week or ten days. This  mine is to be worked when the  Brooklyn is under way.  This week Supt. Collins spent several  days in Greenwood and at the Morrison mine, which is also to be gotten  ready for operations shortly, being  followed by the Athlestan-Jackpot  group in due time.

Boundary Mining Notes  About twenty men are working on  the foundations for the new ore crusher  at the Mother Lode mine.  About 40 men are employed at the  Emma in Summit camp, 6 at the Oro  Denoro and 7 at the Reliance.  A fourteen inch vein of ore has  been reached on Jhe- Barbara, near  Greenwood, that runs close to $100  per ton.  After the train wreck this week,  stopping ore shipments, some of the  furnaces at the Granby smelter were  blown out for a day or two.  Cap. Morrison say's that he will  shortly resume work on the Blue Jay.  This week he secured an assay of $37  from the face of the long tunnel, now  in over 200 feet.  This week Mclntyre __ McDonald  transferred the horse whim from the  Strawberry mine, on the North Fork,  to the Silver King claim, in Skylark  camp, that is being worked under  lease and bond by Mike Kane and  associates.  The Jeffries-Munroe prize fight was  reported by roumds at the Hotel  Brooklyn last evening.  A trip to the Oro Denoro has been  quite the proper thing this week, to  view the C. P. R. wreck of 25 ore  cars and the Shay locomotive.  Harold Nelson, the popular actor, is  coming westWith a new play, "Heart  and Sword," and will appear at Miners'  Union hall on the 20th of October.

Wednesday's meeting of the city  council was well attended, the council t  chamber being well filled with residents interested in the proceedings.  Aid. Boyle, Birnie, Delahay, Marshall and Porter were present, with  Mayor Rumberger in the chair.  A petition was read from a number  of business men on Dominion avenue,  asking that something be done at once  about the Burning of Twin creek from  Phoenix to Cimeron street, as it. is a  menace to health. The railway company the mayor explained will do part  of the work, and the board of works  has been authorized to see that it < is  completed without delay.  A petition was read  fiom  about 50  rate payers and residents, asking that  the council make a grant of $50 per  month to the Phoenix General  Hospital.    Secretary Martin _was present,  and on invitation of the mayor  made  some remarks, showing the necessity  for assisting  the  hospital,  which   has  been  doing  -such ' excellent  ���work in  Phoenix.    The matter was thoroughly  canvassed by the council, and finally fi"  unanimous .vote was passed granting'  the aid asked for till  the  end  of the'  year 1904,' the amount to apply on the  charge for any patients  that  the  city,  might find it necessary to send to  the ,  hospital.

The  clerk was instructed to write tne district land registar,' asking in whose  name the property is registered and  the date of the registry.  Notice was ordered to be given to  the telephone company that the fire  alarm system was out of order, and  that unless it was placed in order at  once, the council will not pay for its-  use. The chief of .fire department was  authorized to place the heavy hose reel,  at the No. 3 station on Old Ironsides  avenue. The matter ol non-enforcement of the pound by-law was brought  up, and the question of cattle roaming  the streets and destroying flower and  vegetable gardens was discussed. The  chief of police said hu had notified  owners of cattle, and was instructed to>  notify them once more. It is likely  that more drastic action will follow if  the notification is not heeded by the  owners of wandering cows and bulls.  $  7 00  22 05  28 00  50  20 00  365  iS 00  36 00  ���?6 00  w  i"ff _|  Ml  ."'ft*  ~_Il.-  r\  m*  IK-  ���to  ft  .-*  ' ff ���:  $V  ��� if?'.

WSreCT FOR BRiTISH JUSTICE.  ' ,     Visitors from the United States to  British Columbia are struck with one  thing about this provinre,   that they  .rarely foil to make note of, and that  is that the criminal laws of British Columbia are much belter enforced than  they are south of the 49th  parrellel.  ,   Possibly the laws are no belter here  than in most of the United States, but  the fact remains that they are enforced  in better shape.    Let us quote a case  in point  A few days ago a degenerate colored  man���from the United States, by the  way���killed a colored woman in cold  blood right in the city limits of Phoenix.   Fortunately  the  murderer was  quickly apprehended, and lodged in  jail, had his preliminary examination,  was held for trial for his life within a  couple of months, and there seems - to  be not a shadow of a doubt that the  man in question, Joshua Bell, will be  the chief attraction at a necktie party  before the snow flies in earnest.   So  much for British justice.   Now let us  look at the other side.  ���   In Georgia a few   days   ago   three  negroes   were   apprehended   charged  with murder, and placed in jail. There  seemed to be no doubt of their guilt,  and they were  tried and condemned  A FoRERUNNERf-The result of, the  Lillooet election may be regarded as a  forerunner of what will happen in British Columbia when the HLauriei' Government appeals to the people?���Nel-  son Economist. .   .

' The editor may not know  it all, but he does not live in a community long without knowing a deuced  sight more than he publishes.���Fort  Steele Prospector.  Whv Ross  Hopes���Where   would  Duncan Ross get off.at, if the Dominion election in Yale-Cariboo was held  on the same date as the election  will  be held in other constituencies in Canada?   If Lillooet, one of the eight provincial ridings embraced in  Vale-Cariboo Dominion riding,  has 84  more  Conservatives than  Liberals,  Duncan  will   be   snowed ' urider.    But as the  election in Yale-Cariboo is to be  held  after the returns are in from the other  constituencies in Canada,  Duncan, if  Canada goes  Liberal,  hopes to be a  winner.���Nelson Tribune.   ���  D. Hodnet and H. Shiflell, of Boss-  burg, Wash , have bonded the Mountain Goat, in the Jackson basin, for  $r 0,000.  . The lessees of the upper tunnel  on the Payne have received returns  of $2800 on a car of ore recently  shipped.  For the first six months of the' year  the price of silver averaged six cents  higher "than it did during the same  period in 1903.  j The deal for the Mayetta' group of  I nine claims, adjoining the Ottawa, near  Slocan City, lias been closed, and development starts at once,  'During 1905, iS,ooo,ooo pounds of  lead were produced iu the Dominion,  valued at $762,660, Nearly the whole  of this came from the Kootenays. ��� *  The bounty paid by- the Dominion  government for the fiscal year ending  June 30th, averaged about $10 lor  every ton of silver-lead ore shipped  from-the mines.  Merchants are always glad to have  people come in but tlo not always  seem willing to invite thenrin.  No clay need be entirely devoid of  interest if the merchant lias the ability  to talk interestingly about goods-which  ���are interesting.

With the completion of the branch  of the Great Northern railway td Phoe  nix, which is promised Tor. some time  this fall, the excellent facilities forget.--  tin;* into and out of the Uoundary furnished by ihe C.P.R., will be doubled.  That the Gieat Northern will  make a  bid for traffic other than ore hauling���  and the officials will  have a keen eye  for that, too, make no mistake���goes  without saying.    Ore  tonnage is what  the railways are all after m this coun,  try, and they've had considerably over  500,000 tons  so  far  this  year.    But  there are many dollars t. be picked up  from passengers, incoming  freight, express,   telegraph, etc., and .indications  are not lacking to prove that Mr. Hill  will go on a still hunt for some of those  dollars.  These strenuous efforts  of another  transcontinental  railway to  tap Phoenix, recall to'mind the days when the  hurricane deck of a nimble cayuse was  the accepted  means of long distance  locomotion, before the shrill  screech  of the iron horse   was  heard  in thes.  mountains.    There are numbers   of  men in   Phoenix  today who  packed  their blankets and  grub  60  and   70  miles from Marcus and   Bossburg, the  nearest railway points, for the privilege  of prospecting the  Boundary's  sunny  slopes.    And sometimes  it was necessary to retrace those weary miles to secure additional supplies, for  the country stores in those primitive days were  few and far between and carried indifferent stocks.  0  *  ���  Practical Horseshoeing, Blac.smlthlnf, ���  Dominion Ave., PhoenU, B.

He told, him  that he had a medicine in the form of  a Chamberlains Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy that he thought  would help him out, and accordingly  several doser were administered, with  the result that the fellow was able to  be around next day.

Lode mining was  not known till after 1884, when Chas.  Dietz, still a resident of the Boundary,  came into this section. Then John  Thornton, W.'.T. Smith, George East,  James McCormick, David Leyson,  James Atwood, Ed. Lefevre, Wm. Ingram, Matthew Hotter, and George  Rumberger came in in the late'8o's  and early 'qc's- followed by a host of  others, most of whom had had some  experience in the silver booms of the  Slocan or the Coeur d'Alenes, or in  Rossland.  But for many years the only  means  ingress and egress to this  section  was  by way of Marcus or Bossburg, unless  one took the Dewdney trail from Rossland,  as   many   did,   especially   the'  Chinamen, who had an aversion to going through Uncle Sam's land. In the  the,course of time a wagon  road was  built from Marcus up the Kettle  river  to Cascade by, the townsite people of  that now quiet hamlet.    It  was   easy  to extend this to  the  present  site of  Grand Forks, and thence  over   boundary   mountain   to    Anaconda   and  Greenwood.    Robert Wood, the father  of Greenwood, did a  lot of   work in  road building to  bring  trade   to that  growing village, and if helped  to de-  velbpths country.  by Mr. Graves to piovide a team to  take the party to Phoenix. When the  two scrawny and forlorn looking cay-  uses came up the travellers looked  askance at the animals, but being assured of their toughness, all board was  soon said. To the surprise of Mr.  Graves and Mr. Whitney, the cayuses  landed the party safely in Phoenix, 60  miles away, ahead of the regular siage,  which had several relays of horses on  the way.  It is needless to remark that Mr.  Whitney was greatly impressed by  what he saw of the then coining Granby mines, even at that early date of  their development, and it is not unlikely that the Philadelphian is one of  those who thinks Granby stock' is still  good enough to hang on to.  you wish fo 1111.1111 pany one oi tlieceex  i .irsioi s write atonee lo W.

Over this road, till the C.'P.R.  was completed in 1899, all of the  heavy machinery used in the, development of Boundary mines had to be  hauled at great expense from Bossburg.  Staging was a fierce proposition, many  times, in those days, especially when  weather conditions was not propitious.  But the Boundary was growing steadily, and was destined to be known all  over the world.  ���. In the summer of 1898 W. C. Whit  ney, of Philadelphia,, son of the ex-  secretary of the United States navy,  had been induced to ��� visit the Old  Ironsides and Knob Hill mines by J.  P. Graves, then _.nd now the manager.
