A report from Vancouver 011 the mining situation in iBritish Columbia, says:  With the year drawing  to  a  close  mining men are beginning to, total up  British Columbia's mineral production  duiing 1902, and he is a pessimist indeed who does not concede an advance  of 25 per cent over 1901.     The  pio-  duction that year was officially given as  $20,086,7 80, so that the lowest estimate  lor this year js��$25,000,000.    Hut the  latest figqres from the  Houndary,   the  Slocan, Rossland, Atlin, Cariboo  and  Vancouver, Island justify one  in predicting that the annual  report   of  the  department of mines will show the figures to   be nearer $2 7,500,000 than  $25,000,000, while next year   may see  the $30,000,000 mark passed.  It will thus be seen that British Columbia, even with the copper, lead and  silver markets working against it, is  twice a Klondike, for he would be a  bold man indeed who would place the  Yukon's output this year at over $15,-  000,000.  Reason For Optimism, I  That there is every reason to be optimistic concerning this year's production is evident from the first public  speech delivered by the minister of  mines since he became premier. Colonel Prior stated at tbe banquet of the  Victoria pioneers that be was emphalic-|  ally of the opinion that the mining industry was on a good basis. Great  progress is being made in the Boundary. Said he:  "The Rossland mines are today shipping more ore than ever before in their  history; from the Slocan 100,000 tons  of zinc ores will be shipped next year  into the United States; the Atlin district is most 'prosperous, and I am  nappy to say that a new era of prosperity is setting in the Cariboo."  Boundary Leads.  The figures so far available for the  Boundary and Rossland show the great  strides forward that, have been made in  those regions. The boundary leads  the rest of the province in ore production, it haying given 457,598, tons to  date,    with   the   prospect   of reach  zie's, Dec. 26, 27.

Tuesday afternoon the Granbysmel-  ter was forced to close two of its  four  furiiaces, which had been in   full blasl  but five days, and when it *was thought  all troubles in regard   to  power  weie  over. One of the seven ton valves in ihe  flume at Cascade broke, and let a flood  of water against the power house, tearing out a part of the   wall,   aiid   completely crippling the new plant for the  lime being, and shutting off all power,  of course.

MacKenzie & Mann, it is  also well known, are not'mining   men,  although they have large mining interests.   But their chief business is  railroading, and they have little  time apparently for mining.    -This  is  ample  proved by their apathy in doing anything with   the  Brooklyn  group,   acknowledged to be one of the best mining qrotips'ih the Boundary.

A PHOENIX PIONEER RETURNS.  Is More Than Ever Impressed Willi  Future  ol This Camp.  A. P. Nipgen, who was a resident  of Phoenix three years ago, but who is  now located at liulte, Montana, spent  a couple of days in the city this week,  on his return from a trip to San Francisco.  Mr. Nipgen has been living in Unite  since leaving Phoenix, and says he has  been doing well there, coming out a  full fledged attorney and owning one  of the business blocks in that city.  When the fall in copper occuned, early  this year, nearly all of the Butte mines  closed, throwing out of employment  some r0,000 men. About half thai  number are now employed,, however,  and business is looking decidedly better in that great red metal camp.  "Phoenix has wonderfully improved," said Mr. Nipgen, "since I lived  here. One would scarcely know the  city, with its well graded streets, new  churches, hospital, school and many  fine buildings. It will undoubtedly  he a great camp in the near future."  Mr. Nipgen evidently knows a good  thing when he sees it, a s he owns  some of the best business property here.  securing 40 more ere cars  R. A. Brown, who has been working  on the Volcanic, on the North Fork of  Kettle river, for the last fifteen years,  proposes to continue the long tunnel,  which is npw in some 000 feet.  An increase of 12^/- per cent has  been given by the C. P. K. ��� to all its  conductors and trainmen on lines east  of Fort William, thereby adding about  ^250,000 to the company's payroll.  Geo. L. Pedlar, eye specialist,   who  is rapidly gaining the confidence of the  people of Phoenix by his regular visits  and excellent service, will lit glassts at  I McKenzie's drug store, Dec. 26, 27.  I John Forin, the carpenter who sustained a bid fracture of his right elbow  some weeks ago by falling from the  roof of a bqilding, returned from Portland, Oregon, this week, where he says  it is raining copstantly.  The Quilp mine, Republic, is reported to have contracted to send 1,-  000 tons of ore to the Tacoma smelter,  the freight and treatment rate to be  $6 80 per ton. It costs 20 cents per  ton to load the ore on the cars.  Montreal  Star Reports Having Had An   Im  portant Interview.  A recent issue of the Montreal St.ii  contains an jnteiesting and .important  interview with S. M. C. Miner, president of the Granby Co. Mr. Miner  said, "We are smelling 1500 tons a  day, and we are going to build another  smelter with a capacity of 2,000 tons,  and in a short time expect to be turning out 4,000 tons a day. In a short  time we shall have the wealthiest miners in the world on our boards."  ''Englishmen ? "  "No, Americans. The English, I  am sorry to say, have not appreciated  or realized tho capabilities of our country and the Americans have anticipated them."  the Union Iron Woiks, of Spokane  owned by G. A. Kendell, of Eholt,  and J. N. Paton and G. B. Taylor, oi'  Greenwood, which several months ago  shipped a couple of tons of hi^h grade)  ore, has been leased to four local min.f  ers. .'..'���'  .The 40-stamp mill, now en route for  the Nickle'mine, at Twetv.y Mile creek,  in the Similkameen, will be hauled to  the mill site over the wagon road from  Penticton. The machinery was fui7  nished by the Jenckes Machine Co.1,  of Sherbrooke, Quebec- '  R. P. Williams, Boundary representative of the Canadian Rand Drill Co.,  of Sherbrooke, Quebec, states that the  balance of the 60-drill electric air compressor plant, ordered by the Granby  Co. for its mines in Phoenix, should be j  received here by the first of January.  The licensing board for the Boundary Creek License district will meet ai  Grand Forks next Monday. Applicants whose names are not on the voters' l|st, as per the new act, are doing  some hustling to comply with the  law,  The Eastern Townships Bank has  opened a branch at St. John, Quebec,  a place of some 6,000 inhabitants.  This makes eighteen branches all told,  of this bank, all being in Quebec except the two in Biiiish Columbia.  Samuel Thomas McOrmond and  Norman Luse, of Eholt; John William  O'Hiian, of AnacondajSamiiel A .Crow-  ell and Seven Dahl, of Midway, made  application to become naturalized citizens last Tuesday at Greenwood, in  order to renew their retail liquor licenses.  The Greenwood Curling Club is  building a link, which will be 36x152  feet in size.  The V., V. & E. depot at Columbia  is expected to be finished and ready  for use by Christmas.  Geo. E. Day, official time inspector  for the C. P. R. in the Boundary, returned from a trip to Nelson on Monday.  Efforts are being made by the authorities to stop the wholesale slaughter ol  deer up the West Fork, and two arrests  have been made.  Work is beim; done on the Florence,  on the North Fork of Kettle river,  with encouraging results. It is control  led by an Ottawa syndicate.  Tuesday, while a C. P. R- engine  was clearing the snow from tlie high  line, to the Knob Hill mine, th^ danger and caboose were derailed.  J. F. Henenway, formerly in tin  Granby mines' offices here, has arrived  at Prescott, Arizona, where he will be  located in the future. Hs writes  there are fourteen inches of snow  at Piescott.  County Court in 1903.  His Honor Judge Leamy has set the  following dates for  the  holding   next  year of sittings of the  county court at  Greenwood   and   Grand   Forks.     At  Greenwood on January   13th,   March  17th, May i2th,  July   14th,   October  13th and December 15th.    At Grand  Folks  on  January   51I1,   March   ythi  .May 4th, July 6th, October   51b   and  December 7th.    Chambers at  Greenwood on first and fourth Thursdays of  each month, or every week should more  frequent   attendance of the judge   be  required,      Chambers at Grand Folks  whenever necessary.

The* matter will -probably be  settled this winter, when the legislators  meet.  .  The Brooklyn group has   now   been  idle for over a year, JaniesBreeh having spent something like $125,000  in  development   and   in   equipping   the  properties  with   first-class   machinery  plants.    He is said to have shown tip  ore valued at $750,000.     Undoubted-,  ly the  Sunset   smelter  would   like to  secure the Brooklyn ores for  blending  with the Sunset product, and the deal,  if carried through) would mean the immediate resumption of operations oji the  property of the Dominion  Copper Co.  here.  "Other People's Money."        '  Jay Gould, when he was asked   one  time how he attained   his   riches,  answered:    "By playing with-other  peo-  ile's money."   The same answer might  be given by the character,   "Hutchinson Hopper," in the comedy,   "Other  People's Money."     Tbe piece is written on legitimate lii.es, is clean, bright,  witty and probable.    Th'-j scenes  and  characters  are   drawn  from   modern  eveiy-day Ameiican life; and the principal personage, "Hutchinson Hopper,'"  is  a   creation   that   will   live  011 the  stage for years to come.    The. story of  the ronu'dy is natural and full of humor.

The new Prior government, through  itstsupporters, .is making eveiy effort to  hojd its own, ,and ihe premier is to be  commended for throwing open the constituency of North Victoria.    Perhaps  he teeis certain,that he will thus  have  one^more supporter in the house, a vrel-  ,come'addition,   probably,   when  he  comes tor count noses.  . It now seems certain that the pre-  mier^ill meet the house with a small  . majority, and then the fun will begin.  ,   He has evidently decided on two strokes  of policy.   One of.these is the nullification of, the two per cent mineral tax,  1     and "the other k the putting through ol  ,  a new deal vkh, MacKenzie &  Mann  f for Unbuilding of the Canadian Northern. 71 he first of these will be welcomed by nearly all the mining districts,  for while the amount realized annually  by.the two per cent tax has not been  se, its. incidence has been not a  ' But the Canadian Northern scheme  ^willjnpt be so welcome to the counlr)  at large, with the exception of Vancou  yer Island.    ..We do not really believe  that , MacKenzie &  Mann will ever  build so as to have the terminal of theii  road at Victoria.. But they will cer-  . tainly, continue to' talk  that  way, and  will probably get the subsidy they are  , alter on that basis.    Ifthe premier will  , consent to an appeal to the. people at  , an early, date, he will gain more friends  . than in any other way. _ Such an appeal  , should settle, many knotty questions,  and it is worth trying once more,  WfflPfWe THE DEVIL  At the last session of the legislative  assembly, the liquor license act was  amended, so that it is now necessary  for the holder of a license to sell liquors  by retail, outside of municipalities, to  have his name on the voters' list.  This is merely another way of saying  that no aliens shall be permitted to  conduct .thirst quenching parlors, outside of cities,in the province. Probably this was the intent of framer ofthe  act, but note how it works out.  l\ext Monday the Board of License  Commissioners for the Houndary Creek  License District, as well as the boards  for other districts, will hold the semiannual statutory meeting to grant licenses for the ensuing year or half year.  Already, a number of present holders  of licenses, who cannot qualify as such  .under the new act, are having licenses  taken out in the names of those who  can so qualify. There is nothing in  the act, so far as known, to prevent  this, and advantage is naturally being  taken of that fact.  It is certain that the liquor license  ���; act should be safeguarded in every  possible way, and that licensees should  , be made to conform to the law, But  why 'this discrimination should be  made, and in such a way that it is in-  1 operative, practically, is not clear.  'JL'his"is 'the first time that such a discrimination has been-made, and it is  \ -practically a dead letter.     It is easy,  -htf this case, to whip the devil around  pthe stump.  ���   ' The Grand Trunk is a great railway  . i system, but its directors arc not building transcontinental lines for fun,  any  more thian did the C. P. R. or would  , tbe Canadian Northern.   They are all  , aching to get their hands into the muddle at Victoria.  Col. Prior cannot play  those cai  up his sieve too quickly  if he  the support of the electorate,  do be troublous times to the average  politician.  wishes  These  Joseph Martin has come out flat-  footed against the Prior government,  and says we need_an_ appeal., to the  people at once.

'I here is nothing surer about a newspaper than that it will be read���every  item and every advertisement that is  worth reading.  A little advertisement is better than  none, but often a little advertisement is  wasted where a great deal would show  a decided profit.

'The best traveling salesman that exists is printers' ink. It has no bad  habits, does not sleep, nor get drunk,  nor make blunders, is the same to  everybody and works while others are  asleep.

Mr. Gmves stated that it would make  little 01 no difference, as the two converters at the smelter could use a considerable amount of Republic ore for  linings,.when the converters were able  10 run steadily, and thai the balance  would be readily absorbed by the furnaces, making almost no difference, in  '.he shipments from this camp.

The seven  blast furnaces now being operated in  ihe three Boundary smelters will use  on an average of about 450 tons of coke  daily, niore or less. Yet it is a fact  thai' when the Granby smelter was  about to blow iii its fourth furnace last  week Friday, the management had exactly five cars of coke oi\ hand��� less  than ioo tons.

But In a recent round-up the champion  did a more remarkable thing, by which,  says the Kansas City "Star," he saved  his own and another man's life.  While he and some companions were  camping tor the night on a high tableland, which ended a few miles away In  an abrupt drop of two hundred feet, a  storm swept through the mountains.  Made nervous by the lightning, the  herd of fifteen hundred cattle stampeded in the direction of the precipice.  Evans and his men mounted hurriedly  and, circling to the tront of the madder >d cattle, tried with whoops and  revolver-sho's to turn them back.  In the dense blackness of the night  Evans's horse missed his footing and  went down In a heap, one leg in a  gopher-hole. The horse of a cowboy  named Davis, running close behind,  stumbled over Evans's horse, and Davis, too, came to earth and lay still,  unconscious.  Fifty yards away came the herd, and  a short flash of lightning showed Evans the situation. The swiftly moving  sea of cattle reached one hundred yards  each way. Unable to arouse Davis,  and never thinking of leaving his disabled comrade, Evans took the only  chance of saving both. He emptied his  own revolver and his companion's into  the center of the herd, cutting a breach  In the fronfof the. mass.': Then, throwing the inanimate form of Davis.over  his shoulder, he awaited his -., opportunity:'- ���-��� ". : .",' ������.'���..  - As one of the leaders brushed by,  Evans, with one movement, put the  body of Davis across the shoulders of  the steer, and mounted, also. Vainly  the animal leaped, bucked and side-  Jumped. "With his le^s wrapped tight-,  iy-around the body of hi* mount, Evans  drove his spurs deep in, and held himself and Davis In place. ���''/;��� ���'.'.���''..':���  The steer, wild with rage, agony and  fright, rapidly left the herd In the rear,  and, veering to the rig-ht in a'furious  gallop, carried his riders out of danger.  Then Evans rolled off the back of his  strange rescuer, and a half-hour later,  when his cowboys turned the herd, at  the rim of the canyon, arid rode iback'to  look for the foreman and Davis, they  found them, both unconscious.- The  weary steer, with his sides covered  with blood, lay exhausted a short distance away.  The outfit ordered a medal for Evans,  and the steer has been pensioned for  life on th^ best alfalfa in the valley.  Curious Bits of News.  The iflrst monument <��ver erected to a  cook is about to be inaugural ed' In  Paris. The chef In questio �� is Vrbain  Dubois, who labored in the German  Emperor's kitchen.  A new volume of reminiscences by  Dean Hole quotes the following extraordinary prayer as offered by a loyal  but certainly injudicious English clergyman on behalf of Queen Adelaide, the  wife of William IV.: "Oh Lord, save  Thy servant, our sovereign lady, the  queen; grant that as she grows an old  woman she may become a new man;  strengthen her with Thy blessing that  she may live a pure virgin, bringing  forth sons and daughters to the glory  of God. and give her grace that she  may so forth before her people like a he  goat on the mountains."  -  Certain creeds seem to monopolize^  certain Industries. Practically all British manufacturers of cocoa, for example, are Quakers. In I<ondon a very  large percentage of cigar merchants  and all the best-known manufacturers  of Christmas cards are Jews. Whenever a Welshman goes to London to  seek his fortune It is long odds on his  making his pile olther in the draper's  or drug store business.

The 13. ����� Copper Co. is having  maniifaciiH'cd in Spokane a slag elevator for use at its smelter at Greenwood.

This will  allow of the dump being filled up level  with the furnace floor and will, it is  estimated, provide for the expeditious  and economical disposal of the slag  from two furnaces for two or three  years, by which time it is likely that  the company will have put in a train-  way with cars and a small locomotive  or electric niotor for handling the slag.

A.JACKSON,  General Passenger AReut.  Spokane, Wash.  N interesting story comes from tha  French Alps of Dauphlny relating the futile efforts of the Princess of Croy, who desired to enter the monastery of the Grande Chartreuse, a habitation from which women  visitors are rigidly excluded.  The story runs that the Princess  dressed herself In boy's clothes and accompanied her husfcand to the Institution. The gates were opened to them,  and the Prince sent his card to the  father superior, with a line to the effect that he was accompahled by a  friend.  Just as they were about to make the  round of the building the word was received that the father would like to see  the Prince and "his friend." Going upstairs they were received by the smiling- monk, who cordially invited them  to join him in an appetizing lunchton.  The Princess endeavored to make the  Ibest of the situation, but she was not  put any the more at her ease by the  fact that the monk kept gazing sharply  at her.  At last he exclaimed suddenly:  "Catch it, young man!" at the same  time throwing at her a large pear. The  Princess was startled, and, thrown  completely off her guard, made a motion to grab up her skirt, the absence of  which she overlooked In her confusion.  Then the father stopped smiling and  said with great gravity:  "I beg your pardon, madam, but la  dies are not allowed in the monastery.  I must ask you to wait outside until  the Prince has finished his inspection."  And outside she had to go, tho reverend father bowing her from the room  WJth most elaborate politeness.  Gasolene Is, tt appears, the fuel most  suitable for submarines; but human  sensations give no sure warning- when  Its collected fumes are becoming dangerous. White mice, however, are said  to be extremely sensitive to this poison,  and perish incontinently before human  beings begin lo suffer the slightest Ill-  effects. So In all submarines of the  future cages full of white mice are to  be kept on the floor, whence the heavy  emanations gradually rise, and lit will  always be someone's duty to go round  and see how the mice are getting oa.  Much interest attaches to the recent  discovery at Combarelles,  in  the department of  Dordogne,-Prance,  ot.a  cave, the rock walls of which are decorated with engraved figures, some of  which are rudely colored, representing  such animals as the horse, the cow, the  bison,- the reindeer, the mammoth and  the wild goat.   Most of these pictures,  .which number more than 100, are covered with a stalagmltlc deposit, partially or entirely concealing them.   It Is  believed that they were made in paleolithic times, and that they furnish evidence that the reindeer and the mammoth lived  In  Prance  contemporaneously with the artists of the cavern.  ,; It.Is a curious fact that the present  session of the United States Congress  contains no negro member.   "With the  exception of a brief period from 1887 to  188��; .this Is the first session In thirty-  two years when this has been the case.  The  first colored  man ,to  be  sent  to  Congress was J. Willis Menard of New  Orleans, who was eleoted to fill a vacancy In 1868.   In 1870 Hiram R. Revells  took his seat in  the'Senate,  the first  negro  to  be  seated    In    thai   -body.  Blanche K. Bruee was the only other  negro to enter the Senate.   The Forty-  Fourth Congress, which sat from 1875  to 1877, may be called -the black Congress, since there were eight-members  In both branches.  There Is an historical reason for the  baneful repute of the opal. Two or  three centuries ago the stone was popular In Europe, and the jewelers of Italy  were especially cunning In its setting.  At the height of Its popularity came  the plague, which made havoc in Venice. It was noticed by some observant  person In ihat city that when a victim  was, a,t the point of death, his opal, if  he wore one, brightened, while after  death it became dull. As this accession of brilliance implied a sort of malignant purpose or Intelligence In the  stone, It was charged with the death of  its owner, it never occurred to the  scientists of that time to turn the Incident around the other way, and see if  the patient had anything to do with  the opal. But that was the way of It:  the heightened fever just ^before death  caused the stone, which Is affected by  heat, to become more brilliant, and the  chill and damp afterward dulled it.  Childish.

GaveTJp the Y���The C. P. R. has  about decided not to use the Y this  winter, recently constructed in the  Phoenix yards. Several days ago one  of the heavy Shay engines" was run on  the Y to turn it, and went off the rails,  requiring the other Shay to pull it on  again, and making some eight hours'  delay. As the Y was built in the winter weather and could not be ballasted  to advantage now, it is not thought wise  to attempt lo use it till spring, when it  can be properly and permanently prepared.

FROM THE��� '���  PEOPLE'S STORE  . -1 ,  A few facts worth considering regarding Butter.
