Its worth your while to look over this  stock of  ties, for never before was such an array of novelties -  offered for sale in camp. ' -  Development work on tlie J. S. and  P*luc Hell claims, in Summit cam;), was  started this week, under the 'bond  Riven to John Dorsey on behalf of a  Chicago syndicate, 'ihe Hluc Bell,  which was bonded from Thos. Stack,  XV. Shaw and Chris McDonald, was  Liken at $40,000 and the J, S.; owned  byJ.B. Barrows, James Jenald and  Hank Snibley at $27,000.  '/'he company being organized to  develop these well known properties is  tlie Lake Shore, and B. C. Copper  Mining and Development Co., with  a capital of $1,000,000, in one dollar  shares. Of this amount $100,000  has already been subscribed to work  the properties, and Mr. D01 sey already  has a force of men at work.  Those iuteiested in the new company are: William Wallin, real estate  and investments, Chicago; David Car-  den, president of Gambrinus Brewing  Co., Chicago; J. B. Smith, wholesale  jobber and exporter, Chicago; Timothy  Uurke, lawyci, evniember of the Wisconsin legislature, and now sheriff of  Green Bay county, Wis.; J. P. Watts,  merchant, Maple Grove, Wis, and  John Dorsey, general. manager, of  l'hoenix. These gentlemen aie business men of means, who are amply able  to carry the development to a sucess-  ful issue.  The Uluc Bell adjoins the J. S., and  both claims are thought well of by  miiv'ng men. The J. S. has a 45'foot  shaft and about 50 feet of drifting,  while the Blue Bell has a 20 foot shaft,  all the workings being in ore.  When Mr. Dorsey went east he had  working bonds on these two claims,  that on the J. S. expiring Dec. ist, before he finally returned. In the meantime others were after the claims, and  J'. R-. -Mackintosh, of the B. G: mine;  who is also secretary of the Mountain  View, another promising Summit camp  property, had secuied two of the three  necessary signatures to a working bond  on the J. S. But Mr. Dorsey wanted  the property, and by making a substantial cash   payment,   secured it.  M.r. Dorsey says he will push work  on the properties as fast as possible,  and make mines of them.  three organizations represented  were  the M'      '     ��� T  ion and  union  Winers union, tlie Car/Tenters un-  nd the White Cooks'pSi-^Waitera  >.   The ne\t" meeting , of the or-  alters  Beting , of the organization will be held next' Tuesday  evening. .��� i:  Heretofoie the unions of l'hoenix  have affiliated with the'''Boundary  Trades and Labor Council Avith headquarters at Greenwood, but it was  thought too expensive lorkriy number  of delegates to be tiavelling' back and  forth between the two places, hence  the formation of the new council.   U  Opening of the Knob Hill Held.  Next Monday afternoon, tlie dav  before Christmas, the new Knob Hill  hotel, on First street, will f be thrown  open to the public. Doc.itfempt, the  manager, has been busy this week in  putting on the finishing touches, and  he (eitainly has a co/y house.' Jirn'est  F. l'luiii, late of the Arlington hotel,  Trail, will assist Mr. Kempt, -.ylib has  many friends in camp. - Tlie house i,s,  lighted by elcctricity^.healed by hot'  air, has electric bells and is up to date  in eveiy v.ay. \ .  C. M. Hitch is the ste-.ia.rd, wlio  will be in charge of the din'mg department, and it is ejected that, -under  his experienced management^ t.his 'will  be one of the popular features of the  house. Everything that can be' Ijad  in the market will be supplied. The  Knob Hill will doubtless become a  popular place.  Will Greatly Pacilllate Shipments From fnai  Great Mine���Work oji It lb Nearly Completed.   *  Vaughan & Mclnnis ha\e let a contract to Corner & Foley for the remodelling of their laige warehouse on Knob  Hill avenue for lodging house purposes.  The building will be plastered throughout and when completed will have 22  rooms.    It has already been leased.  Coming Events.  The entertainment to be; given by  the Laaies Aid Society of tlje Presbyterian church in the Miner's Union  hall onFiiday evening, the|28tli inst.,  promises to be one of interest and  amusement. The program .will consist of vocal and instrumental music,  interspersed with readhjgs^yciLotions,'  club swinging and a'dialogue,"entitled,'  "The Gossip." Other specialties of the  evening's entertainment'will be "Jteas-  ons given by a number-ot young' men  and maidens w hy thty are not married,"  and also the great "Nail driving" contest by six married lacies. This in  itself, from obserwitions in private life,  should be worth the small admission  of fifty cents.  NOW ACTIVELY WORKING  L.C. Crawford  Brooklyn    and.   Stemwinder  Have About 50 Men. V  Shipments of oie fiom Phoenix  camp have again taken'a spun this  week; Foi several days thiee-trains  of ii cars each, 30 tons of oie to the  car, have been sent down to the Granby smelter. The Miner-Giaves syndicate management have found no difficulty whatever in sending out this  amount of ore, and when the shipment*,  are permanently increased to 1200 tons  per day, in the course of a month 01  two, it will be supplied with ease.  'I'he increase of shipments just now  is made because the men at the mine  will be given a couple of days vacation  next week, to celebrate Christmas.  The railway company was troubled to  some extent early in the week by drifting snow* but both the danger and the  rting plow were put in use and the  tracks cleared. Tiie rotary Snow plow  has not yet been put in use. Shipments for the week ending today foot  ul��t0 4i32Q,toris'or 144 cars of oie���  not a bad showiug.i'^veu for1 'l'hoenix  camp.. ��� /  'Double. Tracking (be Knob'-llill.  Some'weeks ago it was decided by  the Miner-Grafts nunagcment that,  to facilitate the,.taking out of ore a  double railway track in the main  tunnel would be necessary. Accordingly, while Superintendent Williams  was away on his six weeks vacation,  the work of widening the tunnel for a  distance of about 350 feet was started.  It is not far from completion now, and  when it is done, will be of the greatest  utility in working the mine. Carmen  then will not have to wait on each  other because of lack of trackage.  The enlarged tunnel is 12.X7 feet in  the clear.  \   '       An Individual Opinion.  , This \veek a mining man visited the  Knob Hill mine, and went all through  it, taking in its ac res and acres of oie.  In speaking of it to a Pioneer man, he  said: "There is room there for the use  of 50 machine drills in breaking down  ore, and there is, in my opinion, ore  enough in sight to keep 50 drills busy  for thiee jears, even if no more deiel  opment were done."

Copper Co., in this  camp, which recently resumed operations, is seen every day. At present  about 50 men are employed in connection with these two mines, and  more will be put on as fast as they can  be used.  The unwatering-of the Stemwinder  was finished yesterday, the full 325  feet in depth, and miners were set at  work. On the Brooklyn two machine  drills have been working all of the  week on the 150 and 250 foot levels,  with satisfactory results. Lumber is  on the ground 'and' carpenters are at  work.covering the tracks outside to  the waste and ore dumps, so that no  trouble will be had from snow this  winter.  Although nothing official is being  given out, it is well known that the  management of these properties are  figuring on a larger air compressor  plant, to l>e itstalled at an early date.  In fact, machinery agents are already  figuring on it. It is expected that at  least a 20-drilI air compressor will be  put in, to operate both the Brooklyn  and Stemwinder. At present in the  latter drilling is done by hand oniy,  the mine being fitted with a hoist and  pump.  Hockey Team Organized.  Last Friday night those interested  in the game of hockey met and formed an organization, by electing the  following officers: Honorary President,  G. W. Rumberger; Honorary Vice-  President, Thos. Hardy; President,  Dr. R. B. Boucher; vice-piesident, J.  F. Hemenway; secretary-treasurer, E.  1). Hall; temporary captain-and manager, P. C. McArthur.  A good deal of interest is being  taken in the matter, and as there are  said to be some old hockey players in  Phoenix, some good games may be  looked for this winter. The team will  doubtless be a strong one.  S350 will buy an elegant upright  piano new at the Gieenwood Music  Store, Copper stieet.  Only routine business was transacted at the city council meeting last  Wednesday evening. ���  The White Cooks and Waiter's Union No. 124, of Phoenix, now- has  upwards of 70.members.  $45 will buy a good Dominion  school organ at Greenwood Music  tore, Prof. Paul Kaufmann.

Meagher and Kane, owners  of the Cottage hotel, are putting up  another addition, 1SX24 feet in size  and two stories high.  Mrs. Jennie L. Stone, of Spokane,  the known mining broker, who also  made money at Skagway, visited the  Boundary's chief mining town this  week.  The Edison Co.'s moving picture  entertainment at Miners' Union hall  Thursday night, brought out a big  audience, who were evidently well  pleased.  To let, substantial 15-room house  on New York townsite, suitable lor  boarding house. For particulars, apply to McArthur & Monk, Graves-  Williams Block.  Next Monday the White Cooks and  Waiters'Union of l'hoenix will give its  first dance, in the form ol" a Christmas  Eve ball. It will take place at Miners'  Union Hall, and arrangements  now complete.  WILL TAKE ATHELSTAN  Owners of B. C. Mine Secured  an Option.  Figure  is $i��0,CC0-Mlne Has Shipped 1200  Tons.  are  This week a most important mining  deal was made, by which the control  of the Athelstan mine will pass into  the hands of Montreal capitalists represented by Clarence McQuaig. This  is the syndicate that owns the B. C.  mine in Summit camp, and Manager  Parrish, of that property, made an examination of the Athelstan.  'I'he option for the Athelstan is. for  $150,000, is for a short time only, and  those interested are confident that its  terms Will he complied with.  Tne Athelstan is located about  three miles from Phoenix postoffice, a  short distance beyond the Winnipeg.  It has over 700 leet of work done* on  it, and has shipped 1200 tons of ore  to the smelters,'which yielded an average of $12.13 in g"hl and copper per j  ion. Since shipping was discontinued j  on account of cold weather,. and the j  force was reduced, over 100 leet ofi  drifting has been done at the 100-fooi j  level. The property is at -present j  owned by Spokane, Grand Forks and  l'hoenix capitalists.  In Boundary Mines.  A general meeting of the shareholders ol the Mountain View Copper Co.  will he held at Eholt next Thursday,  for the election of directors for the  ensuing year.  The new hoist, cable, etc., foi the  Winnipeg, has arrived, and are now  being put in place. The hoist is to be  used in the winze. The new machinery  represents a cost of about $2,000.        j  It is expected that the present force  of 35 men employed on the Snowshoe,  will he will be added to considerably  as soon as the new compressor, now  on the around, is installed.  I.a**t Tuesday night in a blinding  snowstorm the car containing the new  8'dull air compressor lor the Snow-  shoe mine aiti-.ee!. This is the temporary plant that will be used on this  property until the new 20-drill plant,  now being manulactured, js completed  and^ installed. The compressor just  leceived is of the Canadian Rand  make, and is whatisknown as a straight  line machine. Foundations for it were  prepared close to the old compressor  house, and the 70 and 40 h.p. boilers  heretofoie in use will supply the  steam.  By the first of the new century the  compressor   should  be installed, according to Foreman  Trevorrow,  and  and in running order.    It'will furnish' '  much needed power  for  the working  of the pumps, hoists and several addi��  tional diills, and will enable the   man- ,  agement to make better progress in  the development of this excellent pro- -  perty than has  been   possible  in   the  past.  Development on tbe Snowshoe.  The railway tunnel, which was started some months ago at a point   below  where the   railway   graders had   cut  through a body of ore, has been steadily  extended, until it,has now been driven  m over 500 feet, dining which work it  has gone tin ough   three  separate ore  bodies.   At present the men are working in vein matter.    It was   Irc^P this  tunnel that the  six  cars of dre were  shipped a month ago for test purposes.  About a   hundred   feet   from  the  portal ol this tunnel a win?e was stait-  ed on   the ore body.    This winze is  now  driven   over 100 feet,   a  .steam  hoist hating been1 installed, and  the  workmen being all the time in ore.   At a  point 342 leet from the  entrance to  the tunnel a raise was begun a  short  time ago, and is now up about^o feet.  This will not only serve to explore the  o*-e body, but eventually will doubtless  be used as an air shaft.  While for a long time most of the  work was done in the 1ailw.1v  tunnel, ot late operations have been  carried "on once more in the workings  leading from the mam shalt, also.  Fiom the trend 01 events it is evident  that the English capitalists owning the  Snow slice are confident that they  possess a most \aluable prooeity in  that mine. Certainly they have even-  reason to entertain this belief. Undoubtedly they have extensive plans.  for the development of the Snowshoe,.  which are not yet given out to the  public, but the recent ordering of a 20-  drill compressor shows that even more  extensive development' will soon be  inaugurated.

'J he yeat 1901 should be a ]��rosper-  ous one in l'hoenix, and it will be such  unless all t:gns fail.  Down in South. Afiica the Boers  still seem to be causing lots of trouble,  but Ki tiger himself is in a safe locality  in Euiope. i  The Grand Forks Uoaitl of Trade  has declared in favor of a Dominion  mining department. The idea should  be endorsed al! over British Columbia.  DOES T0NNAOE COUNT?  The following is taken from the  New Denver Ledge, published in the  Sloran country:  According to the Pioneer,  Phoenix  camp will be shipping  izoo tons of  ' or.e a day in January, and puffs itseli  up over the fact that l'hoenix will  have the largest daily tondage in  the  ��� piovince. Tonnage does not cut much  figure, it is values that count. The  Slocan can ship a little over ioo Ions  .1 -day and* discount L'hoenix as a  wealth producer. Handling large  qua itities of country rock is better for  tiu miner, but it is not so pleasing to  the capitalist as ore shipments that  " run;h:g'i in value, and low in tonnage.  Tonnage often looks bigger in print  than it does at a bank.  So Brother Lowcry affects to believe  that tonnage "does not cut .much  figure.!" But, in reality, he knows, as  does every other thinking, business  man,-that'no mines are so really beneficial at large to a district as those of  low grade that can he worked at a  '-profit.'^I'his is a case- in point, where  tonnage does not look larger in print  than, it'does at a bank.'' , '  In the Slocan a few men can work  a "rich vein of a few, inches' width, arid  ,- the profits will'be from $75 to $150  -" per ton, perhaps.: Who is benefited  - by , those "profits���we are ' speaking  ><>f profits,'*ahd , not" cost of mining pr "reducing!      Stockholders Tin  - -England"'at in Uncle "Sam's domain,  ���* or elsewhere/^pocket said profits with  %i'roach satisfaction, as,well tliey plight.  - Hut the local trader, or prospector,  or  -��ven   the, quill driver,   sees mighty  1 ��      i, * \ *  \little((��f any) ��**" t,*osfr profits.   The  l^dge itself has borne testimony to  this effect scores of times.  ���J.    But ,iri the Boundary things are  different.   Here the great bulk of our  iires are of low grade���as low as $15,  $10 or even $5 per ton.    And yet our  s   mine operators are getting out this ore  1 at a profit,  with which  they express  ,    themselves as satisfied.    A high grade  camp, until the veins pinch out, is undoubtedly a good place to invest in.  But if one wishes to buy ' property or  go into business of arty kind, a section  where the greatest percentage is required to mine and reduce the ore  \  offers superior .attractions���especially  ���  if the ore bodies are practically inexhaustible, though low-grade.   Tonnage  does    count   in 1 such1 cases,. and  speaks out with no uncertain sound  And Phoenix is just such a place.  It is settled that the Dominion parliament will meet February Oth, and it  will probably be a shoit session. The  government will have the handsome  majority of 50.  The News-Advertiser, of Vancouver,  gravely asserts that Phoenix "is a town  of considerable population and growing  importance." The News-Advertiser's  editor has at last awakened.  A philosopher asserts that a wise  man knows moie than he tells; a fool  tells more than he knows. The first  mentioned, if a business man, carries  a card in the local paper; the latter  never docs.  That passenger service to Phoenix,  which is promised on January 1st, was  worth while asking for. When' the.  C. P. R. noticed that Phoenicians  were in earnest, like their ancient  namesakes, the request made was  granted.   -  ' Quite a number of Pioneer' readers  have followed the suggestions recently  made in this column, viz., to liquidate  for their subscriptions. But there is  yet time for a.number of delinquents  to settie in this century, if they attend to it at once.  The need of examinations for assayers in this province was shown at  Nelson the other day, where eight out  of nineteen applicants failed to pass.  The time has gone by when any. one-  can put out his shingle as an assayer  in British Columbia.  The return of Mr. Galliher gives  the liberal party a majoiity of I). C.  members. With British Columbia in  the liberal column the liberals control a majoiity of provinces, vi2:' Nova  Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec British  Columbia and the Territories. The  conservatives hold Ontario, P. E. 'I.,  and Manitoba. The House will stand:  (Government 130, Opposition 83, majority 47.���Kootenaian.  Golden Cariboo.  Old Cariboo's mining prospects look  brighter at present than ever, and it  is predicted that next season will see  many more large mining concerns than  at present in successful operation.  This season's output of the Cariboo  Hydraulic Company will have reached  by the end of this month $350,000���  $300,000 has already- come out and  there will be another clean up, this  month, when $50,000 will be added  to this great mine's credit for the  season, bringing the total, as before  stated, up fo $350,000. Next-year's  production of this mine will it is confidently expected reach $600,000.  I'he Cariboo Hydraulic Company has  employed at its mine this year about  140 men, of which number 80 are  Japs. The remainder are white miners  mostly belonging to California, - where  they go to spend the winter.���Cam-  loops Sentinel.  ���X      NEW KUNDARY RAILWAYS.  This year tlie crop of applications  for charters to build 1 ail ways to or  within the Boundary" district, is a  trifle larger-than usual. Each year a  number of these applications have  been made, but few get beyond the  embryonic stage..  On the occassion of thereient visit  of Hon. Clifford Sifton, to- British Co-  , lumbia, a few weeks ago, he- gave. it  out that the Canadian government  would   take up and  put through  a  " Coast-to-Koptenay railway, and it is  undci stood that the matter is really at  last assaming. definite shape. The  difficulties of building such a line are,  of course, \ety great, but there,will be  no lack^of capital to put it through,  when all needed preliminaries are arranged. It is not believed, either,  that this is one of the railways which  Joe-Martin took delight in building  on paper just previous, to the. last provincial election.  iVhat relation such a new line  would bear to the C. P. JR. has not  yet been announced, but it is safe to  say that the C. P. R. will not see its  , > tenitory invaded with any degnje of  complacency. When the new project  gets- to the point, where something  most be done, the management of  Cam'du's greatest railway will lake a  i*tijjiii4 in  the, construction   of a  toad  The Dominion government is shortly to appoint a mining commission, to  make an exhaustive^ report on the  mining industry of Canada. This; report will undoubtedly tend to elevate  the business of<mining to the position  which it should occupy.  It is now given out at the coast that  Jim Hill, of the Great Northern, is at  the bottom of one plan to build * a  Coast-to-Kootenay railway. This  would give Mr. Hill entry to the Boundary, the rich Similkameen and the  fruitful Fraser river valley.  It is believed that the Snowshoe  syndicate will take steps next year  towards erecting their own reduction  works. With the Dominion Copper  Co. this will make three independent  sets of,capitalists in this camp, running  their own mines and operating their  own smelters. Is there another cantp  like it in British Columbia?  There must be some bright chumps  in the town ol  Phoenix.    When the  Kettle river railway bill was before  the House the Boundary was up in  arms because both the liberal and con  servative party gave Corbin the wois  of it and pandered tothe C.P.R.    In  the election returns l'hoenix gave Gal  liher 39,  McKane 38 and Foley 17  A Burleigh  drill and  four cases of  giant would ,not inoculate some people  with an idea.���Sandon Paystreak.  Wonder where the editor of the Pay  streak got his figures! The correct  returns for Phoenix were: Foley 86,  JNEcKane 24, and Galliher 39.  WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.

A. Mara, Conser-  WaataC��a*MBy In SMtb DokaU Hw  coma-Ufkc*!.  In view of the successful solution of  the low ore [imposition in  the  JJoun  dary, it is interesting to note what has-  been done in one mine across the line,  as shown by the following:  The largest cyanide plant in the  world has been installed at the Home-  stake mines, South Dakota. Its capacity is 1,200 tons, says the Mining and  Engineering Review. Within the  building enclosing it, which is 34.SX  200 feet, there are 24 Links which will  take care of the tailings from the three  big mills. Heretofore these tailings,  which all contain gold values to the  amount of $1.50 per ton, have escaped  the amalgam plates and passed off into the creek, by which it is estimated  that the company has lost $40,000 per  month.  The different mines owned by the  Homestake Co. lie in the town of Lead,  or closely surrounding, 1,800 men  being employed in and around the  mines. Since first began operations in Lead City in, 1878, it has  made enormous strides in the development of the mines it controls and has  paid $6,298,750 in dividends. The  amount of dividends paid since the  first of tins year has been $1,155,000.  'I'he cost of mining and milling the  ore is about $3 per ton, the ore body  being one of the largest low grade free  milling masses of ore on earth. The  principal mine is the Homestake, worked by three shafts���the Old Abe, the  Ellison, and Golden Star; With respective depths of 1,000, 5,000 and i.too  feet. An; Ingersoll-Sergeant air compressor capable of driving 15."drills' is  at work in the Ok! Abe. Thomas J.  Crier is superintendent and \V. S.  O'Brien foreman of the mines���-both  very capable men.  Phoenix Lodge No. 28,  Kal(bis ol Pytbias.  MeetH every TucHday iiiKht  at 7:30 p. m��� Miners', Union  Hall,  Vislthift brethren welcome.
