In this connection, the data in  the following will be found of interest  to those, who are interested at all in the  <ire shipments from the Boundary.  During the month'of November the  Boundary's "Big Six," namely, the  Granby mines, Mother Lode, Snow-  shoe, Sunset, IL C. mine and Emma,  shipped over 50,600 tons of ore; or at  an average rate of over 11700 tons daily,  Sundays included. This total is not  quite as large as that for October, when  over 55,000 tons were shipped, but it  is not a bad record. All but a couple  of thousand Ions of this ore was treated in Boundary's smelters.  Neither the Granby nor the Mother  Lode shipped quite as much ore in  November as in October, but the difference is not material. The Sunset,  li. C. mine and Emma, also, did not  send out quite as large a tonnage, but,  on the. other hand, the Snowshoe ex-;  ceeds its October-record somewhat.  In the following table will be seen  ihe shipments ol each of the six shipping Boundary mines, both for the  month of October and for November,  as nearly as the figures could be ascertained:::        "'' ..-���-.?

This has, however,  now actually been accomplished, and  if the Sunset smelter gets' its second  furnace in working order by the 15th  of December, as anticipated, the tola!  Output for December, should be somewhere in the neighborhood-of'75,000  tons, in which case the'output for the  entire Boundary for this year will exceed 525,000 tons.

After many annoying delays, extend- [All this time work has been   going on  ing ovei a period of some six months,  the Granby smelter has at last been  enabled once moie to put all four of  its blast furnaces in full operation, as  well as the two converters, which lat-  les handle the matte from the three  Boundaiy smelleis  Last Thuisday the thiid furnace was  blown in, and the next day the fourth  was put in blast, the full battery of  furnaces lequinng between 1,500 and  1,Coo tons oi Phoenix oie daily to keep  them going. Thursday a train of 36  cais ol oie, ovei 1,000 tons, was sent  down the hill to the smelter, and yes-  teiday 52 cars, or over 1,500 tons,  were shipped from the Gianby mines.  Both of the powerful Shay locomotives,  Nos. 1901 and 1902, one of which has  lately been working on the Deadwood  bianch, aie now busy hauling the ore  from the Gianby properties.  The delays in starting the two idle  furnaces weie fiist caused by the explosion at Fernie, then by the stiikeof  the coal mineis at the same locality,  and latteily also by the lack of power.  with the completing of the power line  from Cascade, so as to be utilized at  mines and smelter, and now it is available at the smelter, and can be used at  the mines in a short time.  Last week, H. N. Galer, assistant to  the manageis of the Granby Co., went  over to Fernie to look into the coke  situation, and received assurance that  there would be no further trouble on  that account. As the Granby smelter  uses about 250 tonsoi coke daily, when,  in full blast, it is needful to have a constant supply on the way.  On account of the increase of ore  shipments from the Granby mines, the  force of men, which has been about  250 for some time past,.will have to be  augmented at once, and something like  200 more employees will soon be on  the payroll. Superintendent Williams  states that as there have of late been  many applications for work, he does  anticipate any trouble in getting ,as  many men as he may need. The force  has already been considerably increased.  MR. GRAVES  DENIES IT  Boundary Mining Notes.  Says that  Granby is Not in  Consolidation.

In addition  to the programme, there will be a  booth, where dolls and fancy work,  suitable for the holidays, will be on sale.  No admission will be charged.  Illustrated Article on Granby.  Tlie Los Angeles Mining Review,  of Los Angeles, Calif., in a recent issue,  gave an extended write-up of the  Granby smelter and mines, with a  shoit history of the properties. The  article was illustrated with one of the  latest photographs of the smeller, and  was printed on the first page of the  well known mining weekly.  The local Methodist church people  arc preparing lo bold a Christmas tree  about the 24th inst.  Last Saturday I''. L. Underwood, ol  New York City, a director ol" the B.C.  Copper Co., owning the Mother Lode  mine and smelter, visited this camp,  and took a look at the Granby mines,  accompanied by Frederic Kcffer, manager of the B. C. Copper Co., and  Paul Johnson, manager of the company's smelter at Greenwood.  Mr. Underwood, who left I'or the  east Monday, was seen by a reporter  in Spokane, and said something about  the proposed consolidation of the  Mother Lode, Sunset and Granby propel ties. He sia'.ed that il had not yet  actually occurred, as rumored in eastern financial circles, but that in the  course of three months the proposition  for the amalgamation of the three interests might go through.  Jay P. Graves, general manager 01  the Granby Co., was also seen and he  denied that any consolidation had as  yet taken place. Mr. Graves is report -  ed lo have said:  "It is absolutely.untrue that we have  consolidated with the British Columbia  Copper company. I saw Mr. Underwood at the Hotel Spokane only a few  minutes ago and he may confirm what  I say. He can give some interesting information, probably, regarding the  Boundary creek camps and future improvements, but we have not consolidated. I imagine these stories have  been staited in New York by brokers  ;o boom stocks."  Republic mines shipped 471 tons of  ore to the Granby smelter last week,  making a total of 2,966 tons lo date.  It is leported that a rich strike of  ore was lecenlly encountered in the  Caiiboo at Camp McKinney, on the  400 foot level.  Fifteen men are employed at the  Sunset mine, Deadwood camp, getting  out all the oie needed fiom that mine  for the Sunset smelter, with Manager  Haii) Joluij in chaige.  About 200 men aie now employed  in the mines of ihe Republic camp as  follows: Quilp 30, iMoinmg Gloiy 6,  Black Tail 10, Lone Pine-Suiprise 10,  Trade Dollar 10, San Poil 10, and  California 30.  About the 151I1 of the month the  Sunset smelter, at Boundary Falls, expects to have the second furnace ready  for operation, and the third, which was  recently ordered in Spokane, is to be  ready for use in March next.  It is reported that Elmer J. Edwards,  one of the owners of the lilue Jay, in  Skylark camp, has taken a lease and  bond on the property, and will work  the mine this winter. It is one of the  best known properties in the camp, but  has not been worked for a couple ol  years or more.  It is given out that ore running from  $100 to $130 per ion was lately struck  on the 160-loot level ofthe Waterloo,  Camp McKinney. C. M. Uennet, who  recently relocated this property, to gel  even for having had his claim, the  Rajah, relocated, stales that he will  Mold the Waterloo unless :he Rajah is  returned to him.  TUNNEL No. 3  STARTED  Important New Work Inaugurated at Granby' Mines. ,  TO TAP OLD IRONSIDES 1M-F00T LEVEL  Will Also Reach 200-foot Level ol the Knob  Hill, and Will Give 500 Feet in Depth  From  Apex of Lalter Properly.  George li. Dey took a business trip  to Nelson Wednesday, expecting to return by Monday next.  This week an important piece of  new work was started by the management of the Granby mines,' being tlie  beginning of a new tunnel, which will  be known as No. 3 tunnel. This tunnel is being driven from a point back  ofthe Old Ironsides hotel, and will  strike the workings of the No. 1 shaft  of the Old Ironsides mine on the 160-  foot level, it being necessary to ��� drive!  about 300 feet to reach these workings.  This tuinel will also reach the 200-  foot level of the Knob Hill mine, and  from the tunnel floor to the apex of the  Knob Hill claim is a distance vertically  of some 500 feet, all of which is ore'of  a good'shipping grade, and about 400  feet or more in widih.  One significant feature of the inauguration of work on this new tunnel is  the fact that, when completed, and a  C. P. R. spur is run to the portal, of  the.work.tigs, all of the ore above the  100-foot level of the Old Ironsides  mine can be taken out without the expense of hoisting���no inconsiderable  item of itself.

The editorial writers of the, province  have been having their fling at the  Hon. Dennis.'Murphy, the newly appointed'secretary'in' Premier Prior's  cabinet. Mr. Murphy's bye-election,  which will be hotly contested by the  opposition, will take place on the 20th  inst, and he will then, know whether  his name is doubly Dennis or not.

WHAT EDITORS SAY  O.n'k View���The Piior government  is   without   exception   the.^strongesi  which has evei held the leins of power  in Biitish Columbia.��� Victoiia Colo  nist.  It is customary for writers in the  local press to speak reassuringly of the  future of the Boundary mining district.  This is certainly as it should be, but  the best feature is that the' optmistic  tone is fully warranted by the facts as  they exist, even though the rate of development in the last year or two has  not been'as rapid as many had been  led to" expect.  'Some of the elements that will contribute to' the Boundary's greatness in  the near future, and make it known for  its metalliferous ' productiveness the  world over, are worth looking at just  at this time.  ."Notwithstanding   the adverse conditions   prevailing for the   last   few  months, the Boundary's ore tonnnge  ������for the calender year 1902 will exceed  - that for the previous twelve months by  . at least 25 per cent���the figures being,  respectively, about 500,000 tons and  400,000 tons. .This feature is itself a  'most favorable indication, and worthy  of special note by those interested in  British Colombia.  Then there is the increase in smelter  - capacity. A year ago there were but  three blast furnaces in Boundary smelters���now there are seven, which will  '-be increased to ten or twelve in the  next six months. While a year ago  the combined capacity of Boundary  smellers was'but 1,200 tons of ore daily*  today it is close to 3,000 tons per day,  which will be increased to some 4,000  tons daily in the near future.

I'iistuml 01.1 Iionsliies Ave.  Phoenix, B. C.  Out of Proportion ��� There has  been an unmistakable feeling that the  mining interests which have done so  much to make British Columbia and  maintain its prosperity, have been in  one way or another forced to bear  share of the expenses of maintaining  the  government altogether out of pro-  . Added to the above is the railway! portion to the benefit  which  they redevelopment.   Two  lines have been ceived and to their interest in the State,  built to Republic camp, south of us  and across the international boundary  line, in the last year, and theC, P. R.,  which spent $4,000,000 three years  ago in giving the Boundary railway  connections with the outside world, has  been constantly bettering its facilities  for hauling ore from our big producers.  The Great Northern also, after many  delays, is at last on the eve of active  construction to Phoenix and incidentally to other Boundary camps.  Every reason exists why next yeai  should be the best year in a smelting,  ore shipping and business way yet experienced in the history of the Boundary. It has taken time to bring about  this result, but there can be no doubt  that it is almost due. Those who have  been patiently waiting lor this condition, will be enabled to see their desires fulfilled for the most part, and  this entire section will abound with  prosperity for all classes.  In Victoria the school board has decided to separate the Chinese pupils  .from the white in the public schools  No such question is likely to arise in  Phoenix for some time to come.  It is said that Premier Prior has  'takenJ.N. Greenshields, K. C, as  his-guide, philosopher and friend.. Ii  this is the case the gallant colonel  should soon be well versed in the inside of railway promoting.  ' It is claimed in Rossland that the  Centre Star and War Eagle peoDle have  successfully solved .the problem of the  concentration of the ores ol that camp.  If this is a fact, and there seems to be  no reason to doubt it, it is the best  thing that ever happened to Rossland,  and will also mean much for other low  " grade camps in time.  The Pioneer has been in receipt of  numbers of copies of English and  Scotch papers,containing?!tides fromi  ���Engineering and Mining Journal.  [ STRICTLY   BUSINESS |  Advertising, like electricity, is a  power of fathomless scope.  -  Merchants who do not advertise ate  like soldiers who fight with blank cartridges.  - The merchant who claims that advertising will not help his business will  reach receiveiship before retirement.  Don't delude yourself with the ideas  that there is any element of luck in  advertising. While you are waiting  for luck to strike you, the other fellow  with the hustle is roundling up tbe  business.  Advertising of the right sort will  help ��ny- legitimate business under  Heaven that deserves help. Backed  by the right goods and prices, it will  do more to build up a business than  any other one force known to the business world.  It is becoming to be a generally acknowledged fact that, of all the modern  foims of exploitation, the newspaper  stands pre-eminently ahead of all  others for lasting results. Business  men who have not had the experience  should stick a pin in here.  Coast-Kootenay Railway.  Norman McLean, of McLean Bros.,  who secured a charter last session from  the British Columbia government to  build the Coast-Kootenay Railway, has  returned from New York, where he has  been financing the scheme. He says  that his company is prepared to build  the Coast-Kootenay Railway, if an additional subsidy be given by the Province, and is now prepaied to complete  the Fraser River section of the road to  Vancouver and the mouth of the Fraser river, and put on a first class ferry  service in connection with Victoria at  once, without further subsidy.

The following appeared in the last
issue of the U. C. Mining Record, the
excellent monthly issued at Victoiia,
which has been paying a good deal of
attention to the Houndary mines this
I year:.
It is not surprising that the Granby
Co. has not considered it advisable to'
declare a dividend this year, but on the
other hand it is surprising  that  these,
and other mines in   the  district have
managed to continue ''operations without loss, which we  understand  is the
case, notwithstanding the low price ol
copper, besides other unfavorable conditions to which a new mining territory
must expect to be subjected.    From
ihe statistics recently compiled by Dr.
I.odotix in respect to copper consumption and slocks,  it  is  unquestionable
1 hat of late influences  have   been at
woik other than those  affected by the
laws of supply and demand to depress
ihe price of copper and theie is in con-
sequence every reason to expect a considerable rise in the market in the near
year, as usual, J ust take a look at
them, in this week's issue of the Pioneer. There is sure to be something
that you want.

A story has been going  the  rounds
of the  eastern press  for some   weeks
past, to  the effect  that three ofthe
large copper producers in the Boundary
were about to consolidate.    The properties referred to were the Granby, the-|
Mother   Lode  and   the Sunset,  each
having smelters in  active operation
The story has at  last  gotten   out this
way, but as yet there is nothing to substantiate it.    If this consolidation was
brought   about,   including   also,   the
Pi-ooklyii group in this camp, it would
make a laige corporation, and one that
would attract even   more attention in
the financial  world   than   the several
separate companies do at present.

Miss 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 Eulalle, but it was only
for show and could not be worn. A

The Chicago "Tribune's", record ot
legal executions and lynchlngs In the
United States in 1801 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
noticeable that of the lynchings 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
lynchings In the Northern States increased from 8 In 1900 to 14 In 1901.
Chief Engineer.Emll Prill wltz of the
North German Lloyd steamship "ICron-
prlnz Wilhelm," Is experimenting with
a 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
case any part of her hull Is punctured.
The experiments show that not more
than two minutes is required to render
the "Kronprinz, Wilhelm" unsinkable.

A clergyman of. Duluth, Minn.,
was engaged in conversation with a
numher of friends the other day, when
each started telling stories of weddings
he had performed. One of the party
had tills 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 ^Wtnesses, and, In fact, did not care
to have 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: "Klas
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 ross.
The witnesses burst forth in laughter, while the minister (had all he could
do to retain the serious expression
which he always wore when wedding

A lively debate has taken place In
the Senate of the Australian confederation, as a. result of, a statement of
Senator. Sargood's that he had seen

A gentleman frorri that. State.-doubted

but It was backed up by another,senator, Pearce. A writer In the Sydney
"Bulletin" adds that he has often seen
women ploughing in South Australia.

master of Balliol College, had
wise words to speak on the crucial topic of growing old. He wrote to
a friend:
"The later years of life appear to
me, from a certain point of view, to be
the best. They are less disturbed by
care and the world; we begin to understand that things really never did matter so much as we supposc-d. and we
are able to see them more In their true
proportion, Instead of being overwhelmed by them. We are more resigned to the will of God. neither afraid
to dt.-p.irt nor overanxious to stay. We
cannot see Into another life, but we be-
,-leve, with an inextinguishable hope,
that there, is something still reserved
for us."
It Is worth while to remember his
hints for old age, full, as they are, of a
practical wisdom:
Beware of tlie coming on of age, for
It will not be defied.
A man cannot become young by overexerting himself.
A man of sixty should lead a quiet,
open-air life.
He should collect the young about
He should set other men to work.
He ought, at sixty, to have acquired
authority, reticence and freedom from
He may truly think of the last year»
ol life as being the best, and every year
as better than the last, If he knows
how to use it.
Her Love For Her Lions.
AN Instance of the affeotion felt for
wild beasts by their tamers cited
by "St. Nicholas" is the case of
Madame  Blanca,   the    French   tamer,
who in the winter of 1900 was with the
Bostock    Wild    Animal  Show    giving
dally exhibitions In Baltimore,  where
her skill  and  daring  with  lions   and
tigers earned wide admiration.   It will
be remembered how Are suddenly descended on this menagerie one night and
destroyed   the   animals,   amid   fearful
scenes.    And   in  the  morning  Blanca
stood among the ruins and looked upon
the charred bodies of her pets.    Had
she lost her dearest friends she could
scarcely have shown deeper grief.   She
was in despair, and.declared that she
would never tame another group;- she
would leave the show business.    And
when the menagerie was stocked afresh
with lions and tigers Blanca would not
go near their cages.   These were lions
indeed, but not her lions, and she.shook
her head and  mourned for "Bowzer,"
the handsomest lioness   in    captivity,
and "Spitfire," and "Juliette," and the
black-maned    "Brutus."       Nor   could
money  tempt  her.    And the outcome
was that this most successful woman
lion-tamer in the world retired into private  life;—gave   up  her career  simply
because of her grief for these dead animals. '

HE  swan   is said   to  be  excellent
ealing when young; but as it is
one  of  the  longest-lived  of  all
creatures, it is well to learn if possible
how old your bird Is before you cook it.
A   gentleman   in  Lincolnshire,   England, sent a dead swan  to  the Athenaeum   Club,  addressed   to   the  secretary.    2V special  dinner was  to  occur
that week, and the committee without
question  turned  the  bird over to  the
jVt the dinner the swan, resting on a
great silver dish, was a delight to the
eye; but when it came to carving nnd
eating the bird, no knife seemed sharp
enough to cut it, and of course eating
it was out of the question.
A few days later the donor met the
secretary and said, "I hope you got my
swan all right."
"That was a nice joke you playod on
us," returned the secretary.
"Joke?   What do you mean?"
"Why,   we had the thing boiled, for
thirteen hours, and oven then we might  :
as well have tried to cut through  tlie
Bock of Gibraltar."
"Tou don't mean to say you had the  ,;
