Will Work Alongside ot tbe No. 1 Shovel on  the No. 1 Uvel ol Ihe Knob Kill Mine  ���Made at Lorain, Ohio.  This week the third steam shovel  for handling ore in the Granby mines  in this camp, which was ordered some  little time ago, when the success of  the No. 1 shovel was assured, arrived,  and will be set at work at the No.  1 level of the Knob Hill mine, in the  locality'o) the first shovel purchased  some months ago by the mine management.  .To some extent the first steam  shovel was an experiment, but was  found upon irial, to give very; general  satisfaction to Supt. Williams and  Foreman' Derniody, the result being  that the machine which has just ai>  rived, was ordered.. In the meantime,  the mine management also secured the  use of a steam shovel from the C. P.  R., which has also been at work lor a  month ci more. This latter shovel,  while, from ihe nature of the case, not  being intended for mine work, is'being  put to good use, cannot be utilized to  ihe spme advantage as theother two,  which were manufactured especially  for the severe and heavy work which  they are doing.  In the making of the steam shovel  that i.s just being - put in commissi!  here, advantage has been had of the  experience of tlie one that has been  in use here for sometime. As a result  the No. 3 shovel is a larger and heavier  machine, and is consequently able to  handle more ore, in a given time. Foi  instance,' tlie No. 1 shovel handles"'  about three-quarters of a yard of ma-  ���erial at once, while the new shovel  will handle a full cubic yard in the  same time. The net result is that  the new shovel can be used, if neccs  sary, so as to handle about 1,500 tons  ol oie per dr-y.  The new shovel was supplied by the  same company that huilt the old one,  the Thew 'Automatic Steam Shovel  Co., of Lorain, Ohio. Delivery on  board cars was promised for the end  of November, but was actually made  on November nth. Capt. '1 hew,  the inventor of the shovel, was a visitor in Phoenix the latter part of October.  Hesperus Gold and Copper Mines,  Ltd., composed'largely of Chicago  capitalists. v  At the Granby mines machine shop  woik has been commenced on some  new mine ore cars, which will hold  about ten tons.: .They'-will, be used  in connection with the two small locomotives recently ordered, which will  take the place of horsepower in the  Nos. 1 and 2 tunnels. v  A good sleigh, road has bean built  for the accommodation of the Roderick Dhu claim, in Long L-ike camp,  and three cars of high grade ore a:e  ready for shipment, the development  thus far having given good results.  Shipments will be made ,as soon as  there is sufficient snow.  George Bmith is handling ihe throttle on the Katie Valley locomotive,  which is doing switching duty in the  yards of the Granby Co, here. One  day this week the little machine got  off the track, and it blocked traffic till  one of the huge Shays pulled the little  fellow on the rails again,  Owing to the fact that but one of  the slag-hauling locomotives was in  use at the Graiiby shelter, the six  furnaces have not been treating quite  as much ore this week as they might.  The seprjnd -locomotive; ho\veyer, is  expected to be in commission by Monday, when the tonnage shipped and  tieated will be increased,  J), M, McVicar j.s.building a short  tramway between the R. P. U, and  Gold Finch properties, Loth of which  he is working, to shorten the wagon  haul in getting out the high grade ore  common to both mines. When com  pleted it will reduce the cost of transportation considerably. Both proper-  tits are said to be looking well.  IS THE BEST IN  THE INTERIOR  New Phoenix Telephone System Has No Superior.  COMPANY SPENT OVER 510,000 HERE  Local Lines Rebuilt Throughout, with Mela!,  lie Circuits���New Central Has New  Switch Board���Modern Fililrgs.  HIS FAITH FIRM  INJMNDARY  Rowland Machin, of Victoria,  Here Yesterday.  HAS A, HIGHER OPINION THAT EVER  Boundary Mining Notes,  Over 400 men are employed at the  Gianby mines in this camp, being the  laigest number in the history of Phoenix.  Ore is being hatiled from the Sena  lor claim, in Summit camp, to the railway, for shipment to the Granln  smelter.  Hard rock has been reached in tin-  No. 4 tunnel r-l the Granby mines,  just outside the Pioneer office, the boie  being under cover about 60 or 70 feet.  Application has been made by the  Granby Co. to the legislature for permission to run a tunnel a mile or more  in length to tap the Phoenix ore bodies  at greater depth,  Operations at the Cariboo, Camp  McKinney, have been temporarily discontinued, and in the meantime it i.s  probable that ihe plant for treating the  ore will be added lo.  It is expected that, the repaiis having been completed and the new castings finally having been placed, both  sides ol the 60 drill compressor at the  Gianby mines will be in use today.  The Ella and Dumphee claims, near  the Uetts and Hesperus group, on  Hardy mountain, were taken over by  Huston capital ihis week, and develop-*  ineiii will be started without delay.  Next Thursday is the Decembei  payday at the Granby mines, when  something over 400 men will receive  their paychecks, and neaily 300 at the  smelter will be similarly favored.  The second slag hauling locomotive  arrived at the Granby smelter this  week, somewhat relieving ihe first one,  which had almost more than it could  do to haul away the slag from four ol  the turnaees,  It is claimed there are 15,000 tons  of ore alieady in sight iu the Bens  claim, on Hardy mountain, on which  work was only staited last June. The  total length of the tunnel being driver,  by Manager Rae is 160 feet, and the  ore is said to iun about $12 per ton,  Mr. Rae expects to install a thiee-drill  air compressor at an early date, and" to  begin shipments to the smeller next  spring.    The property is owned by the  Says Ihe Announced Qranby Dividend Has  Opened the Eyes of a Good Many as lo  the Possibilities of lite District.  One visitor who was in the city yes-  tetday, Rowland Machin, is probably  one of the most firm of all believers in  the greatness of the resources of the  Boundary. lror years Mr.Machin has  been visiijng the Boundary two or  three limes a year, and he stated yes.  teiday to a Pioneer representative that  his faith in this district grows greater  with each visit.  As is well known, Mr. Machin is  the manufactureis' agent for the famous Bennett fuse and Campbell's steei  as well as Holman's rock drill���all  English productions. His trade in  these he reports as exceedingly good,  and improving each year. In Ross,  land camp he says they have never had  a missed fuse when his goods weie  used, in all the yeais that that camp  has been under development. The  same thing can also be said of the  Boundary.  Several of his llolman di ills are in  use in the War Eagle mine, Rossland,  and he is just placing them in the  Nickel Plate mine in Camp Medley,  whither he went when leaving here  yesterday. Mr. Machin states that  the llolman diills, which are new in  British Columbia, are giving the best  of satisfaction wherever they have  been introduced.  Mr. Machin shines as an optimist,  and consequently has no use for pessimists of any kind. Notwithstanding  ihe adverse conditions that have prevailed in mining ciicles, and in spile  of the low grade of Boundary ores, he  has always been confident that thh  section was sure to be a dividend payer in lime, wiih ihe economical practice in mining and smelting. The declaration of the fust dividend by ihe  Granby Co,, he asserts, has opened the  eyes of many a coast merchant and investor as to what can be done here,  and he is certain that it will have the  most beneficial kind of an effect on the  Boundary and its development. All  through the mining sections Mr.  Madiin's business is good, and in  none of them is it better than in the  Boundary.  New officials ofthe Greenwood Liberal Association weie elected as follows: Picsidcut, Duncan Ros��; vice-  president, Kenneth McKei zi-; sec  retary, J.M. S'fphi ns. ./\ n-Milutiori  was passed asking the Kainloops As  sociation lo call a Liberal convention  for the en ti 1 e electoral distiict not  later than January 13th.  From the amount of woik done and  money expended in Phoenix on improvements in the last month pr two,  the Yemon & Nelijon Telepone Co.  must think the business in Phoenix of  some importance. Something over  $10,000 has been spent in this way,  with ihe result that this town now has  a telephone system that is in better  shape than that of any other town in  the interior, having been rebuilt from  telephone to syyitchboaid. livery  house in town has been. rewired, as  wel| as business offices, the work in all  cases being concealed as far as possible,  and has been done with an idea to permanency that will tell in the long run,  Supt, Hodge says that he will almost  stake his reputation, that* there will be  no complaints from oidinary causes  for two years to come.  In the course of the work some 30  miles of wire has been' used, 30 new  poles have been set, 250 12-pin cross-  arms placed, and 3,000 piiis and 3,000  insulators will have been placed in  position by the time the work is completed, Besides this, 750 feet of outside cable and 100 feet of inside cable  have been put up.  The new office in the Bank Block  has been fitted up in most improved  style, with eveiy'modern- convenience  known iii-,the world of telephony. .In  additioii to the down-fodate switchboard, a new cross-connecting rack  has been installed,'.and an absolutely  ^und-prodf - cabinet* placed in ��� TJSe;  All oi the improvements have been  made under the direct supervision of  the district superintendent, George C.  Hodge, and Steve Irwin, the foreman,  and reflect credit on them. The new-  exchange was placed in use last Sunday, and while the force will be busy  for a week or two yet, putting on the  finishing touches to the system, there  will be no more cross talk, as in ihe  past. The ringing is-now done in the  central office by electric power.  ASSOCIATED BOARDS IN SESSION.  Mel at Rossland Wednesday and Passed Important Resolutions.  The Associated Boards of Tmde of  Eastern British Columbia met in annual convention at Rossland Wednesday, the affiliated boards represented  being Rossland, Nelson, Kaslo, Cas  cade, Greenwood, Fernie, Trail, Fort  Steele and Cranbrook. The annual  addiess by president George Buchanan  reviewed the chjef events of the year  in the interior, and was heartily received. Mr. Buchanan was re-elected  president, and Archibald B. McKenzie, of Rossland, was appointed wore-  tary. ,..  -   '  The,convention endorsed the Nelson board's resolution approving Cham-  beilain's policy, defeating ihe amend  ment approving of a preferential tariff  without reference to any particular  statesman,  A resolution carried petitioning the  C. P. R. to keep "open the Lardeau-  Gerrard railway service throughout  the winter.       ... ���  Other resolutions   carried   were as  follows! To assure efficacy in the   provincial department of  mines   and for  the'appointment of a   commission to  repoit on the needs of the. mining industry.    To secure publication by the  government of bulletins on   new   processes for the treatment   of   refractory  oies.    Directing the  attention  of the  mines department to the  existence ol  the rarer metals in the Kootenay  and  Boundary ores,    To secure more  definite interpretation of   the   respective  rights of placer and lode miners. Ask  inn the dominion government   to   establish a bureau of mines in  connection with the geological survey.  The delegates were entertained at a  theatre party and supper' and visited  the Elmore oil concentrator.

WILL PAY THE  THIRD DIVIDEND  PREMIER MCBRIDE IS WILLING.  To   Do   Away   With Two Per Cent  Tax If  Substitute Is Found,  In debate ai Victoria last Monday  McDonald of Rosslsnd, leader of the  opposition in the legislature, attacked  the 2 per cent mineral tax, claiming  too many vexations were thrown on  the miningindustry. Premier McBride  replied that while some mining men  protested, they offered no solution of  the difhV.elty, He said revenue bad to  be raised, and the mines could not be  exempt. If a better scheme were offered he would gladly adopt it. He  wishes to take the load off the miner  and prospector as far as possible.  Premier McBride appeals to the  house topassthe loan bill for $1,000,000  before december the 15th, when payment must be'made in London to preserve the provincial credit. He had  not been awaie at the election in how  ciitical a state the last government had  lctt provincial finances, In regard to  the difficulty over not being able  thiough ihe statute now in force to have  the Fernie recount, the premier promised to bring in an amendment to  make ihe old bill workable.  In an interview that afternoon R. S.  Green, now commissioner of lands  and works, and until recently minister  of mines, stated that the government  was not wedded to Ihe 2 percent tax,  and would change it if a better one  was proposed, or if the government  was able to devise a good substitute.  The short time since the government  was elected had not given time to consider the subject in all its bearings be-  loie the session, but they weie anxious  to aid mining as much as possible.  As It Appears in East Kootenay.  The Phoenix Pioneer is in  its  filth  year, and   is  one of the   best   papers  published  in   Western   Canada.     W.  B. Willcox, the founder   and   present  proprietor,   has  done  work on the paper  of the   important  building of the town  ary distiict.  he  is leceiving some  it  Providence Directors Expect To  -   --    po5o Shortly.  PR0FER1Y., CONTINUES TO IMPROVE  Boundary's .Banner  High Grade   Mine "Will  < Probably Pay Monthly Returns le  Shareholders After the First of January.  Last Saturday the Pioneer man visited the Providence mine, which is  located about two miles from Greenwood, up the Boundary Creek valley.  It will be remembered that this is the  property that has made such a splendid  showing in the last year or two, and  has already paid about $5,500 in two  dividends to those fortunate enough  to hold shares.  This propeity is being worked by  means of an incline shaft, and the ore  is some of the richest, if not the richest,  ever taken out of a Boundary mine.  Net returns of $200 to ��300 per ton  are not uncommon from the Providence. A crew of 30 to 40 men is  emplyed constantly, and unlike many  high grade proporties, the deeper they  gel the better the mine looks. A practical miner, Duncan Mcintosh, who is  also vice-president and manager of the  Providence Mining Co., is in immediate charge of the work, and its success is said to be due largely to his  wise management.  It is anticipated that at the December meeting of the board of directors  a thiid divividend will be declared by  the Providence, and it is not at all unlikely that after the first of Januaiy  this soil of thing will take place  monthly with great regularity. The  Providence enjoys the reputation of  having been ihe first mine in the  Buuudiiiy to declare dividends, and its  success has encouraged a number of  others to work high grade claims,  notably the Elkhorn.E. P. U.and Gold  Finch, all of which aie most promising, to say nothing of several others in  the high grade belt, on which work is  being prosecuted.  If there is any mining property in  the Boundary district about which it  is difficult to secure information in  advance, that property is the Brooklyn  group in this camp, owned by the Dominion Copper Co., Ltd., with a capital of $5,000,000, and with head offices and all the officials in Toronto.  Evidence is not. lacking,   however,  that something is brewing in regard to  the Brooklyn, and has been for some  time.    It was known last summer that  the officials of the company   had  arranged to ship the ore on   the  dumps  of the Brooklyn and Stemwinder, the  most extensively  developed mines of  the  group.    The  roadmaster of the  C. P. R., Mr. Johnson, went over the  uncompleted spurs, and found out how  much steel  and  the  number of ties  needed,   and then  came   a'hitch, as  the   Dominion  Copper   Co. did  not  wish  to  pay   the  cost  of laying the  steel, the amount advanced to be taken  out in ore tonnage���a rule of the C.  P. R., that has  been enforced   more  than.once in the Boundary   country.  In other words, the C. P. R. takes no  chances on putting in a spur at its own  expense,"and'then possibly have but a  few cars of ore shipped over it.  ������   This was the situation for a number  ���pJL'rocmlhs^ncl..fi^yy,4liwMj^id;t^  tlie C. FvRi' had issued rush orders to ^  "*!'  lay'the steelyan   arrangement- haying  evidently been arrived at.    Early this  week twelve cars of ties were rundown  the  Brooklyn   spur-r-which   had  not  been used for many months  before���  and it is said  that  the Yale-Lumber  Co, at  Cascade,   has  an   order- for  5,000 ties for this  special work, and  is now sawing them as fast as possible.  The steel, also, is now on the way from  Robson, it being estimated that enough  for laying three-fourths  of a mile will  be required.  It is known that the Brooklyn and  Stemwinder dumps have thousands of  tons of ore of good grade that any of  the smelters of the district would be  glad to have to mix with other ores.  In consideration of the foregoing, it  would seem that it will not now be  long before ore shipments from the  north side of the city will be going out  regularly. -'  Skating Rink Open Tonight.  Prendergast & Munro expect to  open the skating riak this evening for  the season, and thereafter, when the  ice is good, the rink will be open to  the public from 2.30 to 4.00 in the  afternoon, and from 7.30 to 10.00 in  ihe evening.  This year the rink proprietor have  made some improvements in the rink,  making the waiting rooms more comfortable, and laying double floors. The  price of season tickets has been somewhat reduced aud in every way it ispro-  posed to make the rink a popular resort whenever the weather will permit  of its use���which is a good share of  the time in winter. They will also  have special facilities for sharpening  skates, and in, due time will announce  through the press special occasions,  like carnivals, etc.  .-}�����-*>'$,'."���;���'  '���'.'f.'t  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

Last week's announcement that, on  the   16th  of December,   the Granby  ' Consolidated Company would begin  the payment of regular quarterly divi-  ' dends, on a basis of four per cent per  annum on the  issued  capital, or ten  ' per cent on the market price of the  shares, must certainly have made pleasant reading to the 300 or 400 stockholders of that  company.    And  not  ' only was it interesting to those who  have put their hard coin into the  Granby   mines, but to  every man  in-  ' terested in mining in the province.  For some months it has been anticipated that the Granby Co. would take  '" this step, but the official announcement  . ��� to that effect was what was. wanted.  From''the statement    made  by   trie  company at its annual meeting held in  Montreal   in   October,  much   larger  dividends could be declared, but the  management prefers lo keep a reserve  on hand for improvement and contingencies���a plan that is acknowledged  by the best business men to  be wise.  It should be remembered that the  dividend just announced was made  while operating but four furnaces at  the .company's reduction works, and  with a number of drawbacks to contend with during the last fiscal year  of the company���all of which are too  well known of in the Boundary country to require repetition. Now six  furnaces are being operated, and with  ordinary luck it would seem that the  company can not only continue to pay  the dividend announced of one per  cent each quarter, but in all likelihood  to do even belter than that i. the near  future.  It has been believed for some time  that when the Granby Co. actually  reached the profit sharing period,  when that fact became known, and it  was dtfinitely learned that these golden  hills could be made to give a profit���  then would come a time when plenty  of capital would be available for investment here, and when prosperity  would shine upon us for a long, long  season. We hope that this will be  the case, and have every reason to believe that it will. No music sounds  so sweet to shareholders as that of  dividends, and that is a tune that will  evidently be played in the Boundary  fo��a good many years to come.  The man who criticised Joseph  Martin through the columns of the  Vancouver Ledger, after being sued for  libel by the man from Manitoba, apol  ogized for so doing, and the action was  withdrawn. Mr. Martin says the  newspapers have been doing too much  talking about him in an uncomplimentary style, and proposes to put a  stop to it, Until he leaves the Province, however, he is likely to be in the  public eye, for he's built that way.  President Miner, of the Granby Co.,  was once credited with saying that it  he began to receive returns in from  five.to ten years from., the lime the  wnrk was begun, he would be satisfied.  The time is somewhat short of the  latter figure, and at no distant date  other Boundary mines will doubtless  be paying dividends also. ,  Repeated statement are to the  effect that there will be a Dominiou  election soon. The date most commonly set for this important event is  in the latter part of Januaiy, although  nothing official has yet been given out  in this connection.  It is some years since there have  been so many deals made .in the  Boundary, as have been in evidence  this fall. Most of them aie of an important nature, also, Confidence in  the potentialities of the Boundary is  growing steadily.  With three steam shovels at woik  at the Granby mines, \ mine pay toll  of over four hundred men, and plenty  of coke at the smelter, it looks as  though   those six   furnaces  would   be  kept busy-for-it-long time to ccm?.  The shareholder^ in the Gianby Co.  had to be possessed of plenty of patience in looking for returns, but from  now on they will smile broadly as the  quarterly dividend checks at rive with  due regularity.  Apparently there are more reports  of accidents from deer hunting this  year than from dear hunting. Possibly  those of the latter variety do not get  into print so readily.,  Premier McBride is curtailing government expenses in every way possible. The legacy left him by. previous administrations makes this imperative.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  ��r  !  THE OBSERVATORY  Things Talked of at  Home and Klskwhkke  Jb  Mr. Miner, Mr. Graves, Mr. Flum-  erfelt and their associates in the  Granby Co. are to be congratulated  on the final successfulouicbme of their  extensive operations in this cmp.  Many there were on the outside, and  some were mining men of experience,  who did not believe that our low grade  ores could be made to yield a profit.  But the management of the Granby  Co. never faltered from the time they  took hold, some five or six years ago.  Obstacles innumerable-presented themselves, some of which seemed to be  practically insuperable���yet each, after  the other, was successfully overcome,  and overcome sometimes where others  had failed.  One thing should  be  remembered  about the Granby Co. pn the outside  ���something that is well known in the  Boundary. The concern has been conducted on the strictest business principles from the very inception.    Not a  thing was lacking.    Capital  was provided in accordance with   the  size of  the enterprise, and the  most  capable  men that could be retained   were se  cured to carry out the details.    Possibly  the management  has shown its  wisdom in no more  striking way than  in the selection   of  its   department  heads^-the ^lieutenants  who   carried  out  the plans formulated.    Many a  mining company in British  Columbia  has had ample capital, yet was not the  success it should have been.    In most  cases it was a question of men, not  money.  7  Economy in advertising is another  name for judicious spending.

PROVINCIAL MINING ASSOCIATION.  Important Resolution Passed at Kaniloops by  ibe Executive.  Probably the most important matter  dealt with by the Provincial Mining  Association in executive session at  Kainloops last week, was the adoption  of a resolution calling upon the government to tax all lands in the province, including mining pioperties, so  that none should escape paying their  fair share toward ihe general revenue.  E. B.'Kirby, of Rossland, introduced  a resolution which asked for the imposition of a graduated land tax such  as obtains in New'Ze.--land, where the  larger the land holding the larger the  percentage on its value which the  holder has to pay. This was somewhat loo socialistic for the executive  and the resolution eventually passed  in ihe form given.

It is not often that a newspaper published even in the heart of a mining  distiict, is as clo;.e to actual mining  operations as is the Phoenix Pioneer.  For instance, to observe the work of  beginning the diiving of No. 4 tunnel  by the men employed by the Granby  mines, all that the lightning compositors employed.on this family journal  have to do is lo look out of the windows of the Pioneer building. Not a  hundred yards away is the force of  men diilling and blasting, and getting  ihe tramway in shape for extensive  operations. As yet the face ofthe  tunnel is barely out of sight, as the  shooting occasionally testifies. The  mines in Phoenix-^the mines that  have given fame to the Boundary in  large measure���are not located from  one to five miles distant, as is so often  the case in mining Camps, but aie literally at-our doors.  '    m  Here is an item that we give for  what it is worth, and no more, '! here  may be something in it, and may not:  When in Gieenwood last Saturday the  editor of the Pioneer was informed  that one gentleman had been informed  by another, that he had been told by  still another, that Jay P.Graves had  told-.him that work on the -Phoenix'  branch of'the V., V. & E. from Grand  Forks, would be started in'" full swing  between the 1st and 151I1 of December.  *u  A certain preacher, at the conclusion of his sermen, we are fold, said,:  "Let all in the house who are paying  their debts stand up." Instantly every  man, woman and child, with one exception, rose to their feet. The  preacher seated them and said : "Now-  let every man net paing his debts  stand .up."- The exception noted, a  careworn, hungry looking individual,  clothed in his last summer's suit, slowly assumed a perpendicular position.  "How is it, my friend," asked the  preacher, "that you are the only man  not to pay his obligations?" "I run a  newspaper," he meekly answered, "and  the brethren here who just stood up  arc niv -subscribers, and -". "Let  us pray," exclaimed the minister.  A number of li.ibing ��� nien ' of "tlie-  Boundary have been favored with letters from Harry Johns, formerly superintendent of the Sunset mine in Dead-  wood camp. Since leaving the Boundary, Mr. Johns has been trying his  luck at placer mining in California.  He thinks he has struck a good thing,  that merely icquires a little capital to  carry it to success, and give pointers  to old California-;placer' miners. He  is willing to let in a few of his friends  in the Boundary country, but, seemingly, they do not appear to be anxious  to take hold. It might be making  money too fast.  ���   MS     .    ���        ��� ������  -Percy F. Godentath, the newspaper  correspondent, who .was formerly located in the Boundaiy, has been  spending a nionr.li in the Lardeau, and  now has in preparation a Christmas  story entitled, "A Romance of Poplar  Creek," dealing with the discovery of  this.now famous gold camp. The tale  is based on tbe attempted jumping of  a placer claim and the tragic ending  of the jumper. Ii is Mr. Godenrath's  first attempt at fiction, and will appear  in a number of papers.  The Hamilton Herald says that  Patti sings like sixty. In fact, she has  been singing something like that for  several years; and her fifteenth or  twentieth ' farewell" tour is now taking  place.  MS  McRae. Bros. & Smith, of this city,  always have something original in the  way of a Christmas card. This year  their greeting is in the form of a folder,  with the following appropriate verse",  such card having a photographic view  of Phoenix or some of its mines:  This lime bit modest niiif-e must soar  And lake a iiigljpr flight,  We're leeline. now as ne'i-i- before,  With dividends in ��ii>lit.

And so 1 sing to far and near,  Iu lunijuiijje true but bold,  "Keep eyeon Boundary mines next year,  Of copper, silve , gold."  ��������  The starting of ihe Poplar Creek  Nugget by Col, Lowrey, with James  W. Greer in immediate charge, re:  minds us of ihe early days of the  Pioneer. This Boundary weekly was  projected in the fall of 1899, but of  course it took time to get in the new  plant for printing, and it took longer  to get it housed, with the demand  You should if you don't. It gives the news  of the Boundary. It works for the Boundary. It is owned by the editor and not by  any clique or faction. It is worth $10.00.  It costs only $2.00.  then prevalent for buildings of any  sort. In the meantime Duncan Ross,  of the Greenwood Times, thought to  cast an anchor to windward and take  time by the forelock by starting a paper  in-this place, and thus perhaps discourage the launching of the Pioneer,  which had been announced. So Mr.  Greer did the work of getting out exactly thirteen-issues of the Phoenix  News.  When the writer reached Phoenix to  stay, one <T the first men he met was  Mr. Greer, who soon announced that  there was room for but one weekly in  Phoenix, and that he had come to stay.  However, the Pioneer plant was then  being br< ught up the hill by four  horses . frum Grand ' Koiks, and-in a  few days theieafter the first number  was launched, since which time, of  COUI.S-*, as is well known, it has never  missed an issue. The opposition, the  News, lasted but a few numbers ihere-  al'ter, from vaiious causes 11 is to be  hoped, that Mr. Greer will have bettei  luck iu the giealguld camp of Poplar.  *�����*��*�����������������)*  B. C MINING  An average of the ore from the  Len'or'a mine, Mt. Sicker, is said to be  six per.cent in cupper.  All the mine and mill machinery ai  the Arlington mine Kiie, is being  offered for sale.  The Western Oil & Fuel Co., J.  B. Ferguson, manager, is drilling foi  oil near Morrissey.  Natuial gas has been discovered at  Steveslonjnear New Westminster, and  drilling has been started.  The Theis company has commenced  the sinking of a shaft at Oldtown,  Perry creek, for dee]) placer operations.  At Barkerville the country is al read)  well covered with snow, and all placer  mining operations have been sus  pencled. .   -  A shipment of exceptionally high  grade ore will shortly be made from  the Bonanza group, near Ymir, owned  by Rowley and Anderson, en the "north  fork of Wild Horse creek.  Fou. furnaces in operation at the  LeRoi's Norport-smelter, are treating  800 to i,oou tons of ore d.iily, and  employing 180 men. An ore buyer  has been added to the staff.  Final payment has been made on  the famous Hunter V. group of seven  claims, near Ymir, and that property  has passed into the hands of the B. C.  Standard Mining Co. The entire consideration was $50,000.  The 'Gold :Hill mine on Forty-nine  creek, lias made a first shipment of  free milling ore to the Hall Mines  smelter for test'purposes. The owners  propose to build a mill as soon as the  extent of the ore bodies is. proved.  The Great Northern Mines company has completed the purchase of  the Swepe group on Poplar creek.  The company is employing twenty  men steadily on the Lucky Jack and  Swede groups, and both properties  continue to give most satisfactory results.  Ore shipments from the Rossland  camp for last week were: LeRoi,  4,740 tans; Centre Star, 1,380 tons;  War Eagle, 1,140 tons; LeRoi No. 2,  290 tons; LeRoi No. 2 ^milled) 350  tons; Jumbo, 120 tons; Kootenay,  240 tons; total, 8,260 tons; total for  year to date, 367,140 tons,  The company operating the Foghorn mine, in the Ymir district, after  three yeais spent in driving a 1,000-  foot tunnel through veryhard lock, has  struck the ledge at a depth of 900. At  that depth lour and a half feet of carbonate ore carrying free gold has been  crosscut, which is similar in appearance and character to that found in the  nottoni of the small shaft sunk on the  vein 900 feet above.  The record made by the Centre Star  mining company, operating the Centre  Star mine at Rossland, for the year  ending .September 30th, shows the net  profit in.-excess of all expenditures  was $265,000, and of this sum $195,-  000, was applied to liquidating the indebtedness of the company, leaving  $70,000 in the treasury. A feature of  the operations was the exceedingly  low cost of $1.97 per ton for  mining.  Cotton rags wanted at the Pioneer  office. Highest price paid. Bring  .'em along and get your money.

Co.,  y Mining Matters.  Piioknix, B. C.  Uelow we give a few editorial opinions iu regard to the effect of'ihe announced dividend of $133,360, to be  paid on the  16th   of December.     As  will be noticed, the opinions are of a  similar tenor, and are most optimistic.  ;   Significant:* is Large  'The declaration   of a  dividend   by  the Granby company is  an  event of  unpoi tance not only to the shareholders but to the Boundary country and  the  whole   piovince.    In   itself   the  dividend is a comparatively small matter, hut its  significance is   large, and  there is good giouud to expect that ii  will piove the harbinger of better times  in   the mining  districts'?���Rossland  Miner.  Splendid Advertisement.  ��� 'The announcement that the Granby  Consolidated Mining Company has declared a dividend of ten per cent on  its slock'will'be heard with general  satisfaction in liriijsh Columbia. One  of the largest corpoiations in the  province, ihe Granby Company has  displayed great energy and courage  in the carrying out of its enterprise,  lis mines are producing a very laige  quantity of ore, while its smelting  operations aie on a great and steadib  increasing anile. 'The company's progress has been followed with the greatest interest by many persons who have  no investment in its stock. It has  been realised that the progress and  prosperity of one of ihe most import  ant mining districts in the province  would be affected in no small degiee  by the results achieved by the Gianby  Consolidated Mining Company. If the  company succeeded in mining' and  treating the low grade ores of the  Boundary Creek distiict as a sound  business proposition, it was felt that  it would be a splendid advertisement!  and assurance of the great notentin  ities of that impoitant section of the  province, while the financial- failure of  the enterprise would inflict great injtuy  and seriously prejudice the outlook for  mining enterpiises in that locality.'���  Vancouver News-Advertiser.  Paying Big Dividend,  'The year 1003 will be an impuitani  one in the history of Gianby company  of the Boimdar.. country. It is announced that the (list dividend < f  $133,360 will be paid next month, and  it is expected that similar quaiteily  disbuisemenfs will be made to the  stockholders from that time on.      .  'The development of the Boundary  country has been largely due to men  who have made their headquarters in  this city. From the eaily days ol  prospecting and through the weary  yeais of investigating and uudergiound.  exploiting, ii is men of Spokane who  have borne a laige part of tbe burden,  confident that difficulties would Ir-  oveicome and that the icwards in the  end would he commensuiaie with ihe  money, time and labor expended.  Conditions were such 'that a huge  outlay was necessaiy befoie letuint,  could be expected, and it is undei  tlide 'circumstances that mine development is olten most discttiiaging.  'The old llounduiy enthusiasts have  alway been confident, however, thai  with the immense oie deposits thete,  the distiict must become one of tin  most iiupoiiaul in the west, and ibt  announcement ' of dividends by tin  (iianby ' oinpany goes to show thai  iheir faith was watianted.���Spokaiii  Spokesman-Review.  ���       New l!rn in Low Ornde Mining.

He declares  that he recently stood In a crowded  thoroug-hfare of a large city and listened to "scraps of conversation" of  fifty women who passed him.

Jliss Ellene Jaqua, a well-known vocalist of Brooklyn, N.Y., Is the first  person to possess a glass gown which  can actually be worn and not once  only. It is of spun glass, made In  Dresden, Germany, and was modelled  and cut in Paris. At the Chicago Exposition in '93 there was a glass dress  exhibited, which became the property  of'the Infanta Eulalie, but lt wag only  for show and could not be worn. A  full description of Miss Jaqua's glass  gown is given In the "Strand Magazine" for February.  The Chicago "Tribune's" record of  legal executions and lynchlngs In the  United States In 1901 shows that 118  persons were executed and 135 were  lynched. Of those executed 71 were  negroes, and of those lynched, 107. The  executions were one fewer than In 1900,  and the lynchlngs were 20 more. It Is  nqtlceable that of the lynchlngs only  39 were for murder and 19 for criminal  assault, leaving a remainder of 77 persons lynched for minor crimes. It is  noticeable also that the number of  lynchlngs In the Northern States Increased from 8 in 1900 to H In 1901.  Chief Engineer Emll Prlllwitz of the.  North German Lloyd steamship "Kron-  piinz Wllhelm," Is experimenting with  ii new arrangement which he has  placed in the ship for use in case of a  collision, A small wheel abaft the  pilot-house Is turned, and Instantly hydraulic pressure closes twenty watertight doors in the lower part of the  ship, making sixteen water-tight compartments. The fact that all the doors  are closed is Instantly shown on an  electric dial, on which the numbers of  the doors and their location are printed.  The sixteen water-tight rooms are  more than enough to float the vessel in  ease any part of her hull Is punctured.  The experiments show that not more  than two minutes Is required to render  the "Kronprir.z Wilhelm" iwslnkable.

A clergyman of Duluth, Minn.,  was engaged in conversation with a  number of friends the other day, when  each started telling stories of weddings  he had performed. One of the party  had this to offer:  Some time ago a great big fellow,  roughly dressed, and a wee mite of a  young- woman came to him. They had  no witnesses, and', in fact, did not care  to liave any. Nevertheless, a bridesmaid and groomsman were selected  from the household and the ceremony  began. They had promised to love and  obey and all the rest of the service,  when the preacher announced: "Kiss  the bride."  The bridegroom, on bended knee,  hesitated a little, tried to say something and couldn't.  "Kiss the bride," said the pastor.  "Why, parson, I did, afore I come  here at all," replied the bridegroom,  whose face had taken the color of a  June ro.Ta.  The witnesses burst forth in laughter, while tho'minister'had all he could  do to retain the serious expression  which he always wore when wedding  people.

Latest Mining   Stock Quolslions,  Old Age.  ROFESSOR   JOAVETT,   the   great  master    of    Balliol    College, had  wise words to speak on the crucial topic of growing old.   He wrote to  a friend:  "The latter years of life appear to  me, from a certain point of view, to ba  the best. They are less disturbed by  care and the world; we begin to understand that things really never did matter so much ns we supposed, and wa  ftre able to see them more In their trua  proportion, Instead of being overwhelmed by them. We are more re-  Bigned to the will of God, neither afraid  to depart hot- overanxious to stay. We  cannot see into another life, but we believe, with an inextinguishable hope,  that there Is something allll reserved  tor us."  It Is worth while to remember his  hints for old itpro, full, ;ta they are, of a  pnu-tlour wisdom:  Beware of tho coming on ot age, for  It will not he defied.  A m��it cannot become young by overexerting hlinyelf,  A mini of nlxty should leud a quiet,  open-air life.  lie should collect the young about  lilm.  He should set other men to work.  lie ought, at sixty, to have acquired  Authority, reticence and freedom from  personality.
