Mr. Mills  is a brother-in-law of John Miller, a  shift boss at the Granby mines, and  he came here on a visit to his relative,  whom lie had not seen in several years,  He remained here several days, and  while in the Boundary also went ovei  the Granby smelter.  The company of which Mr. Mills i*  manager bears the same relation to  smelting in that country as the Amalgamated dues in this country���being  a consolidation of several concerns,  and doing a business that reaches oil  river the world. The principal business is smelling and rolling copper,  but other ores are also handled by the  company, the extensive works of which  employ about 2,000 men. Formeily  the company received considerable  matte and ore from the United Stales,  hut now the prinepal supply is from  Africa and South America.  Mr. Mills brought letters from Mr.  .Stanton and Mr. Ntcholls, directors of  the Granby company, whom he'met.in  New York city, While in thewest he  was making a tour of the various huge  smelting plants, and went from heieto  Butte, Montana.  After being shown through the  mines of the Granby company in this  camp, as well as the company's smelter at. Grand Forks, Mr. Mills expressed himself as greatly, surprised  at the completeness or i'lie 'pia'tils,*'aiVtf  the tremendous size of the ore bodies  in the Fhoenix mines. In all his  travels he had seen nothing like it,  and althougn he had hand something  of the mining possibilities ol this section, he could not realize the possibilities till he saw them   himself.

Last Saturday night the Phoenix  Skating Rink was opened lor the fust  time this season, and crowded. This  week the ice has been excellent, and  every afternoon and evening numheis  have enjoyed the exhilarating sport.  Pie'ndergast & Munio. thepi.optietors,  are doing everything possible for tin-  comfort of their patrons, and before  long will anage lor a carnival.  Ihe Curling Rink has also been  well patronized this week, the ice'being  some of the finest that has ever been  seen on the link. This evening a  meetiig of the cut ling club will be  held, at which a full attendance is re  quested, as business of importance  will be considered, including the selection of the various rinks-that will  play together this winter.  A'.meeting of the Phoenix Hockey  Club was held last Tuesday evening,  and Judge W. R. Williams was chosin  as manager for the season. The club  is in good shape this winter, and has  some excellent players in the membership, theie being some 40 names on  ihe roll at present. It is pioposed to  arrange, if possible, to send a team to  the winter carniv:,! at Rosslsnd, and  an effort is also being made to foim a  Boundary Hockey League, including  Phoenix, Grcenwoodand Grand Forks.  THEY UUUiilU A RICH CLAIM.  Phoenix Men Invest in Mine Running 40 Per  Cent Copper.  Several days ago James Marshall  and William Fernie leturneu from a  trip up the main Kettle river, many  miles above Canyon City. They went  up to look at a claim called the Lottie  V., which was said to have a rich  showing of copper ore. On the return the assays being so satisfactory,  James Mai shall, G. W. Rumbergei  and J. B. McAulay purchased the  claim outright.  The Lottie F. is located about 85  miles from Phoenix, or some 45 miles  above Canyon City, which is on the  main Kettle river, and but a few miles  from the surveyed route of the Midvii y  & Vernon railway, which is expected  to be started next spring. The claim  is favorably situated, and the shaft  now on the pioperty is all in ore,  which can be seen to run high in copper, even to a novice. Several tests  which have been made show the spec -  mens to give returns of 40 per cent  copper, to say nothing of small gold  and silver values. It is the intention  to do development work on the property in the spring, and probably ship  some of ihe ore that is now on the  dump.  1  J  Tuesday, January 12th, the Ladies'  Aid of the Catholic church will give a  mid-winter ball at Miners' Union hall.  Keep the date in mind.  Richard H. Hutchens, formerly  foreman at the Mother Lode mine, and  later at the Seattle mine, on the North  Fork, was iu the city Thursday.  Official announcements were sent  out this week of the New Years' eve  masquerade ball, to be given by Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8 at the hall.  There will be four pieces of music.  Senator Hamden's Serenaders (col  ored) after leaving Phoenix last week,  ran up against.all kinds of hard luck,  and have disbanded. They received  all kinds of notices from the Kootenay  press, from the best to the woist, but  the ghost would not walk, and they  were forced to do'it instead.  H. N. Galer, assistant manager of  the Granby Co., came up from Grand  Forks Wednesday. He had just returned from Coleman, Alberta, where  he says the International Coal & Coke  Co. is going on rapidly, the 104 coking ovens being under con-truction,  aud the whole town steadily growing.  The Cb.istmas tree for the children  ol Eholt will be given on the evening  of December 23rd at the old school  house. Previous to the festivities of  ihe occasion a sjut called the "Area  Belle,,' will ,be given, with W. S.  Torney'as master of ceremonies. It  is to be hoped that he will acquit himself as well as he did last year on a  similar oecas on.  J. B. Henderson, of Grand Forks,  has bonded the Victor and Thirty-  Seven claims in, Summit camp to the  Granby interests* for $20,000, being  part of the Senator group, lately taken  also on a working bond by the same  parlies. -The entire group has a large  showing of iron ore, and shipments  are now being niade from the Senator.  NOVEMBER IS  BEST MONTH  Boundary Mines Shipped Nearly 75,000 Tons.  M<jg>���  TvVO COASTING ACCIDENTS.  IT EXCEEDS ALL PREVIOUS MONTHS  Increase ot About 5,000 Tons Over October, Due  to Qretter Granby Shipments���Valued at  About $450,000.  TANGLE OVER  THE WINNIPEG  >-&_  Bank of Montreal, of Rossland,  Steps Tn.  CLAIMS   RUN   10   NEARLY   $10,000  Manager Plewman Says That the Men Will  Get Their Money, but Shareholders Will  Lose the Property.  A short time ago the Winnipeg  mine, in Wellington camp, which had  been working for three months,  and in that lime had shipped some  2,500 tons of ore, on account of the  Bank of Montreal serving a wiit foi  $3,573, due on a demand note, given  when the company was previously in  operation. Manager , Richard Plewman says that the action was a total  stupiise to him, as lie was assured  that the bank would give him an opportunity to work out the debt. When  the writ was served Mr. Plewman did  all he could to get the claims of th  men who had been employed secured,  as well as those furnishing mining ma  teiials. This was done by mechanics'  leins, the total being something over  $4,000 ��h c'i will come up in court on  the 15th inst., at Greenwood.  The bank claims will be adjudicated  later. Altogether the Winnipeg owes  close to $10,000, and this is about the  amount that the Bank of Montreal  will probably take the property in at  unless others wish to purchase at the  sale.  The Winnipeg has had a varied  career, with several tips and downs,  but now Mr. Plewman, in view of the  fact that but few of the old shareholders seemed to be willing to make an  effort to get the property out of debt,  does not think there will be anything  left for the stockholders after the  claims are paid. He himself lias put  his entite private fortune into the  propeiiv, which will now be a total  loss. With the low rate of treatment  since the mine resumed operations the  thn last time, it was making a gooo  showing. Many .think the property is  a good one, and that it will be taken  over in due time by people with capital, who will put on its feet once more.  Presbyterian Crrlslmag Tree.  Tuesday evening, December 22, the  annual Christmas tree of the Presbyterian Sunday School will be held at  the church. Mrs. J. E. Mills, the  supeiintendent, is drilling the children  in the exercises, assisted by a number  of ladies, and the event promises lo  be of great interest to the children wl o  take part and their parents. Reheat sals are now steadily going on.  Any one desiiing to place a piesent on  the tiee for any child will have the  privilege of doing so. The public is  cordially invited to be present and enjoy seeing the little ones enjoying themselves on this festive occasion.  For several months last past tlie ore  shipments from the mines of the  Boundary have been gradually getting  larger, and those for November show  an increase of nearly 5,000 tons over  the record of the previous month, the  November figures being 74,401; tons  while those for October were 70,284  tons, and for September they were 63,-  000 tons. Definite returns of the  November shipments have been made  lo the Phoenix Pioneer from most ol  the larger mines that are contributing  to this large tonnage, and the totals foi  each-mine, as neaily as they could be  ascertained, were as follows:  Mine  Tonnage  Granby Mines    4S.'22  Mother Lode    12,992  Snowshoe   ...'   .6,802  Sunset         800  Emma    3.466  Oro Denoro.      3,239  Winnipeg         495  Athelstan-Jackpot...-. .   ..   1,485  ��� 74.401  Ono Little Fellow Is Now  In  tbe  Hospital  As a Result. 'L;  This week has been quite proliffic  in ihe shape of accidents to children  while coasting. Nearly every slreet in  the city has been indiscriminately used  for this purpose, and the only surprite  is that there have not been more serious accidents than have happened.  On Monday Gordon Shepherd,  whose father is an employee at the  Granby mines, was run into by a sled  on Second street, and both hones.below one knee were broken. It appeals that he was trying to get out of  the way of the sled, which was being  ridden by Joe Ingram, but was unsuccessful. Joe tried to clear him, but  with the result that the accident happened. Gordon is but six years of  age, and was taken to the hospital,  where he is getting along as well as  could be expected.  Oscar, .it.Amand, also a little fellow,  whose father is employed by the C. P.  R. at Eholt, had received a sled from  his father- last Tuesday. The next  (Jay, during school recess he tried  coasting down the 19 per cent School-  street hill, and ran into a telephone  post the first time, being knocked insensible, He was carried into the  schoolhouse by Principal Thoruber,  and thence taken to the hospital. His  injuries were not found to be very serious, however, and he was soon taken  to the home of lohn Bowerman,  where he lives.  Secretary Crawford and the city authorities have this week put a  stop  to  indiscriminate coasting, and Prin-  4����*W*t������Htf�� *>*�����*>  Boundary Mining Notes.i  ������>*��*���*>������*��*��� ������������ #  the  November total   For the 30 days of November the  tonn.ge record for the Granby mines  as was expected, was larger  than   for  any   previous oinilllar   period   since  the mines have been shipping, while  the showing for the Mother Lode is  just, about the same., as . for :;Qctob.er,  and that of the next largest shipper,  the Snowshoe, is' somewhat less than  for October, The Emma shipped  more than in October, and the Oro  Denoro sent out almost exactly the  same tonnage in November as in  October.  With the Granby smelter now operating six blast furnaces at fullest capacity, the total for December, the last  month of this year, should show a still  further considerable increase over that  for November.  Figuring on a basis of say $6 per  ton value, the tonnage of the low grade  mines of the Boundary for November  was worfh close to $450,000. These  figures do not include the occasional  shipments from the Boundary's high  grade%shij)pers, which will materially  increase the value of Boundary ore  shipped, if they do not increase the  tonnage much.  Meet to Call a Pastor.  Next Thursday evening a meeting  of the congregation and adherents ot  the Presbyterian church will be held  at the church for tbe purpose of ex  tending a formal call to R.ev. C. W.  MacColl, now located at Moyie. Mr.  MacCol! occupied the pulpit here several times last summer, and made  many friends in Phoenix. It is to be  hoped that the call will be extended  and that it will be accepted.  Kootenay Curlers' Officers.  The annual meeting of the Kootenay Curling Association was held lsat  week in Rossland and resulted in Rev-  elstoke being choseu as the place of  bonspiel this year, Nelson running it  close for honors. The election oi  officers resulted in Judge Foi in c>'  Nelson being selected as patron, J. S.  C. Fraser of R-jssland, president, M.  L. Grimmett of Sandon, H. A. Brown  of Revelstoke and P. E. Wilson ot  Nelson, as vice-presidents, F. B. Lewis  of Revelstoke, secretary, and Rev. E.  Procunier of the same place as chaplain.   A Coming Treat.  Too much praise cannot be given  the K. P. L> dge here for engaging the  Schubert Symphony Club and Lady  Quartette of Chicago to appear here  on Wednesday, December 16th. This  company is in its tenth year of success  and is acknowledged everywhere to be  the most "up-to-date" musical company travelling. Everybody likes  music and everybody enjoys a hearty  laugh. A delightful blending of pure  fun and fine music is one reason why  the above company has won its way to  the top notch of public esteem.  cipal Thornber will see that the orders  are carried out as far as possible.  Starting Two Bank Branches.  Last Thursday.. Thomas, Corsan,  foimerly of Rossland, was a visitor in  camp, coming up from the Forks with  H. N. Galer. It was his first visit  to the mines that have made the  Boundary famous, and he was of  course mnch impressed with the mag  nituJo"'-of the operations carried on  here, as well as with the size ,of the  ore bodies.  ~vMr. Corsan,w,ill be the -manager of  the branch- of the British "American'  Trust Co., which will be established  on the first of January at Vancouver,  another branch being established at  the same time at Victoria, with Manager Milne in charge. This concern,  with headquarters in Grand Forks,  already has a branch at Coleman,  Alberta, and will thus have four establishments when ihe new branches are  opened.  "A Family Affair."  "A Family Affair," which will be  given next Tuesday evening at Miners'  Union hall, for the benefit of the  Church of England, by the Greenwood Dramatic club, is said to be  something well worth seeing by every  one who enjoys a laughable farce. The  plot hinges on a young man falling heir  to a fortune left to him by a wealthy  aunt on condition that he be married  on coming of age. His attempts to  prove that he is married, when he is  not, and the complications arising  therefrom, afford many opportunities  for comical situations, and keep the  audience in a roar from start to finish.  Those who saw the play in Greenwood  a week or two since, assert that nothing better has ever been presented in  the Boundary.  After conclusion of the farce the  room will bo cleared and dancing will  be enjoyed, for which special music has  been engaged. Refreshments will be  served by the Ladies'.Guild in the  hall.  . Shipments are now being made by  the Emma from both sides of the  claim.  Thursday was the monthly payday  at the Granby mines, and next:Tuesday the Sno-wohoe- will have .its''turn.  Between the two over $50,000 will  have been distributed this month.  The two locomotives which will replace horse power in the Granby  mines, have been shipped from the  makers, th^e DaAenportMachine Works,  Davenport, Iowa, and should arrive in  camp any day, and be placed in  commission here.  Coke is coming in more freely at the  Granby smelter, and the reserve of  some 2,000 tons has not had, to be  drawn on. This week the six furnaces  have been operating at fullest capacity,  and the ore shipments from the company's mines have been somewhat increased.  The second steam shovel was placed  at work in the Granby mines last Sunday. All three shovels are now buisily  at work. TheC. P. R. shovel not being  so conveniently fitted for this specia  work as thenew shovels, requiresaloco  motive to wait on it all the time,  m.oving'cars.  The balance of about $5,000 on  the bond on the Elkhorn, due from  McDonald and Sutherland on the 9th  instant, was in the bank to meet it  some weeks previous, being the, net returns from ore shipments from this  hi^h grade property, which adjoins the  Providence. '    ���'  Next Wednesday is the date set for  the payment of the dividend of $133,-  630 by the Granby Consolidated, being at the rate of one per cent .quarterly on the issued capital of the company. This is said to be the largest  dividend ever paid at one time by any  rrining company in British Columbia.  The Snowshoe mine is now in shape  to ship a larger' quantity of ore than  the smelter can take from it. Underground in this mine there is a reserve  of about 96,000 tons of ore broken  down in trie slopes, and only a -few  days ago prospecting work on No. t  level ran into another body of ore.���  London(B.C:) Review.   -      --  "  TWO BIG CONTESTS.  J. B. McArthur, owner of the New  Yoik townsite, adjoining this ciiy,died  early this week in Toronto. Mr. McArthur was a firm believer in British  Columbia, and made extensive investments here. He was largely in  teicsied in the Similkameen and in  the West Kootenay Light and Power  Co. His son, P. C. McArthur, was  foimerly in business here.  McLeuglln  vs. Chris Mack, sod  Beaa vs,  Silent Rowan.  Next Tuesday evening two big contests will take place at Miners' Union  hall, which have been well  advertised  by large posters throughout the Boundary this week.    G.   C.   McLaughlin,  the champion  of   British   Columbia,  will  have  a  wrestling  contest   with  Chris Mack, the Phoenix- miner, and  Danny   Dean,   the  well-known   local  athlete, will box ten rounds with Silent  Rowan, of Salt  Lake, Utah.    In the  first  mentioned  contest McLaughlin  agress to throw Mack  three  times  in  one hour, actual wrestling time, catch-  as-catch can, while the boxing contest  will be  for  a   decision.    Tbe events  will   be   pulled off at 8.30 sharp, snd  there promises to be  considerable interest in the two events, as all the men  are well known.    Probably there wil  be a large  contingent  of sports  from  Greenwood and other towns to witness  the contest.  In each event 75 per cent of the  gate receipts will go to the winners,  and 25 per cent to the losers.  Methodist Christmas Tree.  'The Christmas tree and entertainment to be giver, on Wednesday,  Dec. 23d, in Hardy-McKenzie hall,  promises to surpass anything yet given  by tbe Methodist church. 'The programme consists of drills, recitations,  dialogues, and Christmas carols, and  I well worth heain.4. A collection^  will be taken at the door lo help de  fray expenses. Be sure to come.

Coasting is an exercise or amusement that is enjoyed by old and young  ���especially the latter���hut, like any-  other amusement of a hazardous  nature, it should have restrictions and  safeguards thrown around it.    This is  1 not the case in Phoenix, at least, and  as a result a bright little boy of six  years, Gordon Shepherd, .tow lies in the  Phoenix General Hospital, with his  little leg broken in two places, being  pronounced a bad fracture, another  received severe injuries, and still  others have happened this week.  The first accident happened last  Saturday on one ol the public streets  of the city, one sled running into another doing the mischief and placing  the poor little fellow' on his bed of  pain.  This is not'the first'time that an accident of this character has occurred  here but it is the most serious, and it  is now time to call a halt, or fatalities  are more than likely  to result.   The  ' strong arm of the law should be invoked at once, and all coasting prohibited on streets where the grade is  steep or' where cross streets render it  dangerous. Of course, the greater the  danger the greater the zest in the  sport, but some comparative safety  should be the first consideration. Some  may think-this hard on the children,  but it is the safe side.  Suppose it had been your son or  daughter that had been injured, suiely  you would think the time had come to  put a stop to indiscriminate coasting,  which is also dangerous to pedestrians  as well as to those participating in the  appaiently innocent amusement. Let  the coasting, if allowed at all, be safeguarded in a reasonable manner���otherwise there may be some funerals to  attend as a direct result before the  winter.is gone.  Premier McBride is losing no time  in getting the finances of the government, in belter shape, by putting  the new loan bill through with as little  delay as possible. When it comes to  taxation, with a huge deficit to Pace,  that was accumulated by his predecessors, it is not easy to please all classes,  but the indications now are that the  premier will be successful in evolving  a measure that will give pretty general  satisfaction, especially it he can adjust the two per cent mineral tax so as  not to lax the cost of mining.  Phoenix is still afflicted with the  most" disgraceful airangements for  clearing goods at the customs of any  town in, the interior. We challange  any or.e to orodnce its equal, and this  in the face of the fact that it could be  easily and inexpensively obviated by  the Ottawa authorities.  Both Fernie and Cranbrook, in East  Kootenay, are once more agitating for  incorporation, and if they can figure  out the financial end of it in a satis  factory way, which they undoubtedly  can, it should be granted to them,     i  The Poplar Creek Nugget has appeared, and is a neat four-column,  four-page sheet, as bright and breezy  as Mr. Lowery usually makes, his papers. There will be plenty of room  for growth for the Nugget.  Seeminglv Contented ��� The  Miner's predicted exodus of homy-  handed sons of toil from the Rossland  district, prophesied a3 a certain result  of continued Conservative rule, makes  as yet no sign. The .workers are  seemingly contented to stay and earn  good wages,���-Vancouver News-Advertiser.  A Statesman���Mr. Chamberlain  lays down a system that he regards as  adapted to the country and conditions  he has to deal with. He is not an  imitator of the United States, nor of  Germany or France, in their protective  features. His plan is that ol a states  man and not of an agitator, restless  only for a change.���Rowland   Miner.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  One good ad after another "com  pounds business at a rapid rate.  If you know how to get at the right  people in the1 right way, you know  enough to make your advertising pay.  Robbed of its surplusage advertising is telling the business' news ol  the house putting it out.

Joseph Ryan says he has secured a  site at Kaslo for a smelter, grading on  the foundation for which begins this  month.  During November the Halls Mines  smelter at Nelson treated 3,482 tons  of ore. The bullion shipped amounted to 538 tons;  According to returns and royalties, the clean-up at Atlin this season  was over $430,000, or 5530,060 more  than last season.  One hundred and fifty coke ovens  are now in operation at Monisscy  mines. 'The remaining hundred will  be completed'in the spring.  It is announced that a 100-ton  pyritic smelter will be built next  spring, to treat the ores of the Velvet  mine near Rossland.  At the North Star mine 30 men  are employed, development is progressing, and although no shipments are  being made at present they will be resumed in the near future.  Shipments from Rossland last week  were: LeRoi; 5,375 tons/Center  Star, 1,470 tons; War Eagle, 1,230  tons; LeRoi No. 2, 390 tons; LeRoi  No. 2 (milled), 340 tons; Jumbo, 140  tons; total, 8,945 tons; total for year  to date, 376,095 tons.

'The Noithwesteni'Trustee Company  has been -organized at Calumet with a  .capital of $54jOoo to pay off the liabilities on the Camboine group on  Fish creek, provide working capital,  and receive proceeds of sale of slimes  in the reorganized compmy.  It 'has. been decided to hold the  next convention of the P.oyincial  Mining Association in Victoria on  Feb. 22d. A committee ' consisting  of the president, the two vice-presi  dents and Messrs. Gait, Peaison and-  Campbell Sweeny, with power to increase their numbers, was appointed  to: watch legislation'.  ������ Referring to the Elmore concentration process being tried by LeRoi No.  2,. the manager says: "Technically  the piocess has proved a complete success. Practically all the mineral is  saved, the tailings running on an average, about 13 cents to 25 cents a ton.  The cost, I should judge, will run  about $2 to the ton when the plant is  in good running shape and as the ore  now being treated is from $3.60 to  $6 ore, this leaves a good margin.  Word comes from Vancouver that  H. Dekeyser, who has formed a company there and erected a test furnace  of 50 tons daily capacity, at-a cost of  $13,000, has instructed his lawyers to  prooceed against Dr. Hendryx if he  proceed" with his contemplated works  at the Republic mine, Republic, and  the Arlington mine in the Slocan. It  is alleged the Hendryx process is stolen  from Dekeyser, the latter claiming that  he is fully protected by patents in all  countries.  i  Air Compressors    :     Rock Drills  THE CANADIAN RAND DRILL CO.  t.

Referiing to the above,, tbe Vaucou-  ver Woild had the following interest  $ j ing but rather inaccurate comments:  It has been the dream of tbe people  of Phoenix'ever since their little cit)  had a name, that some day--that  "some day" of ihe hazy future���the  big mines but of whose development  the community has sprung, would be  ivoiked by means of a gigantic tunnel  having its poital far down the hillside,  boring for miles into the heart of the  mountain, tapping the great ore bodies  thousands of feet under tlie town, a  tunnel into which great 1 ail way trains  with long lines of steel ore cars would  rumble rind come out laden with theii  thousands of tons of rock to be hauled  to ihe smelter, there to be tieated foi  their contents of-gold, silver and copper.  It rounds like a dieam. 'To think  of a double track railway running fotii  or five miles into a mountain; of trains  loaded by steam shovels at a depth ol  4,000 or 5,000 feet, lo run direct to  the smelter, without change or re-hand-  lii.g; of the enormous galleiks down  in the levels of the earth with miles ol  switchyards, puffing locomoiives.clang-  ing "steam Irishmen," the burr of the  air drill, the deafening roar of dynamite and ihe crash ot tailing rocks from  glory holes nearly a mile to surface  down, which would fall in years to  com-- millions ol ions ot the hungry  looking lock which was so few years  ago despised but is today the source  of the greatest milling industiy in  Canada���all this to be so lai below the  present city of Phoenix that it would  lake the aveiage miner half a shift lo  climb up a ladder to the open air. And  To .ur.dei stand the possibilities one  must understand the lay ol the land.  Phoenix is situated right on the summit el' the Cascade range. Thioiv a  cup of watei from one end of the depot platform and it will How west.  Thiuwn from the other end it will go  east. Both will finally unite in the  Columbia, but they will find their way  to the lather of waters by widely different couises. 'The town itselt snuggles j List, below in a little gulch on the  west slope.

Across this gulch stiiking noitheast  and southwest are the great mineral  zones. 'The Knob Hill and Old lion-  sides claims of the Granby mines lie-  up'the southern brow.

It is nothing at all. The  men on the graveyard shift are merely  shooting their holts' before they go off.  'They drive inch and a quarter holes  24 leet into the reck with a Rand  diill and load them with 20 or 30  sticks of dynamite. When 100 or so  of these shots go off simultaneously,  it makes the living rock treirble a  little and the mountain creep, but the  people of Phoenix don't mind it. They  get used to it.  'The Granby company is using a  carload of dynamite a month making  those miniature earthquakes. 'They  are sure enough "shalces," but tliey are  hand made.  But to keep to the point.    This is  the system   on   which   ihey   mine in  Phoenix: 'The ledges, or more properly, "zones," are  1,000  to  1,500  feet  wide.    'The ore  is  below  the  street  level except where the zone runs into  the side hjll,    The   lock   is   so   low  grade ($4.73 a ton) that no  practical  miner would ever think of hoisting  it.  Practically all that has been done below the surface up lo dale  is  in   the  nature of development.    'The tunnels  ate big enough,   goodness  knows���20  or 30 feet wide���but they are development tunnels Just the same,  and   aie  laid out like cross-sections of a checker board around blocks of ore 300 leet  each way.    All three-quarters of a million teng l"iU is being taken   out   this  year comes from  a   great   open   eul  1,000 feet wide driven  into  the brow  ol the little 1 pise. that  surrounds the  town.    In a year or two this, will   run  out and the ore will have to be secured  from below.    Aheady   ihe   company  has started to   mn   a  tunnel   from a  short distance (jowu the gulch  below  the town, but while this will   open up  seveial million tons of ore in the   Olu  Ironsides mine it is nevertheless in the  nature of a temporary expedient.  'The Granby company's scheme,  which they are asking from the government power to carry out, is the  common sense one,ambitious as it may  appear. Fiom Phoenix down to  Greenwood, a distance of less than  four miles as the ciow flies, there is a  sheer drop of nearly 4,000 feet. 'The  proposition is simply 10 go as low  down the hill as practicable, and drive  a tunnel into the heart of the mountain until it taps the ore body which  they are working now at the summit  of the range.  'Then glory holes would be made to  the surface and ihe ore mined in the  Granby and Old Ironsides dropped  down tinee or four thousand feet. 'The  great Shay engines which toil ceaselessly up and down the heavy grade  1 roin Eholt with their serpentine trai;  uf oie cars, could be all laid in tin  icrnp heap, for the switchyard  in the heart of the muuntaii  would be on the same level as Grand  Porks. And doing away with tin  long tier of switchbacks which the  lailway makes to get up the bill, the  distance to the smelter would be cm  down by almost one-half.  It is a great big amb:tious scheme,  and il presents its problems, but it is  the logical and natural system and  there are no insuperable difficulties or  engineeiing impossibilities. When it  is carried thiough it will be the greatest mining accompli.-hment in the  known woild. And why not; for this  is in British Columbia, and British  Columbia is soon lo become the greatest mining country in the world.  Inaccuracies In (lie Above.  'The above makes a pretty story, but  it is as full of mis-statements as most  mining stories published in the coast  papers.  Application has been made, as  staled, for permission '.o run a long  tunnel but is not likely to be lour 01  live miles long, 1101 will it iea�� b the  ore in the Granby mines at a depth o:  4,00001 5,000 feet. To gain a depth ol  5,000 feet they would have to start the  tunnel below the sea level, as the C. P.  R. station in Phoenix is but 4,694  feet above sea level. Chiistina lake  is 1,595 leet> Grand Forks 1,700 fee'i  and Greenwood about 2,300 feet  above sea level.  This entertaining writer also says  that in a )ear or two the ore now in  sight in the Granby mines will be ex  hausted. Let him figure a little before he reaffiims that. 'This' year  1903, these mines will probably ship a  tiifie under 400,000 tons. Call it a  million tons for 1904, and how long  would 50,000,000 tons���the estimated  tonnage ol oie proved���last? Greenwood is about 2,300 feel below Phoe-.  nix, not 4,000 feet, as stated.  Notwithstanding these discrepancies,  this tale is of more than passing  moment, as showing the import.nice of  the operations neing conducted by the  chief niinini; company, iu the chief  mining town, ol ihe chief mining district, of the chief mining province, of  the Dominion of Canada.
