CENTRAL CAMP  WILL BOOM  No.  7 Mine To Have  Concentrator  DILIGENT PUPILS  RECEIVE PROMOTION  Mill Will Be Connected With  Mine by Aerial Tram  ii  *t'  <<  u  ((  ��  ((  .��������'  u  The coming year promises to be an  active one in Central camp, south  of Phoenix.. As'stated in the Pioneer  last week, the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting company have acquired  the No. 7 group, of mineral claims,  the British Columbia Copper company  and the Giant Powder company having  previously held large interests  The new owners are planning extensive development work for next  summer, which will do much to bring  the rich mineral zone south of Phoenix  to the notice of the public. The City  of Paris and Majestic are* other impor  tant groups in that camp which have  been lying idle on account of remoteness from transportation.  Tne Consolidated company have decided on the erection of a concentrator  two and a half miles  from  the No.   7  mine, the site having already been secured under option, and  the ore will  be conveyed to the mill   by an  aerial  tram line.    The mill  will be of a type  thoroughly adopted for   the concentration of the class of ore found  in the  ledges of the No." 7  group, and this  will no doubt give other  properties in  the district, carrying the same character of ore, the long-desired opportunity  of having their ore tested and  of finding oul   if the ore can  be profitably  treated  without going to the  expense  of building concentrators of their own.  The acquisition ofthe group by the  Consolidated  company''is largely  an  ���11 . j _  Phoenix Hockey Stars  For the benefit of those who are  not acquainted with hockey material  now located in Phoenix, the following  list of suspects with pedigrees is given  the P.oneer, and from which no doubt  a winning septette will be selected for  New Year's night.  Jack McCreary will lea') the tribe as  captain ��� he has continental fame in the  hockey world and is said to have as  many medals as Napoleon. His position is in front of the net where he  plays a role similar 10 a stone wall.,  At. McQueen will be on the forward line.

Roy Clothier was the star defence  man oh the Moyie team when they  challenged for the Stanley cup and  has come to try and catch a place with  fast company.  Herb Neil was the foremost  rough-  rider of the Nelson team in the nine  ties.    He plays  wing and its a case of  "the bird hath flown" when a check is  I after him. ,  Lome McKelvey is the Irish hockey  wonder.

Lee Simms is the fastest graduate of  Antogonish county and was one of the  main guys in winning  the pennant of  ���67.  Then there is Claude McAstocker.  Claude has seen so many Stanley cup  games that there is no doubt he would  know how to land the mug if on the  local line-up.

The concentrates will be  shipped to the-Trail smelter via Boundary Falls.  The No. 7 group consists of eight  claims and fractions, aggregating 300  acres. ~ Tne ore is quartz, mineralized  with gold, silver, lead and zinc, aud  is of good concentrating type. The  ledges vary in width up to seven feet  and are very persistent, About- 3000  feet of development work has been  done, including a shaft of 300 feet and  drifts along the main ledge.  The  No.' 7   mine   was  located  in  October,   1901, and  up to   1897 had  been opened up to the 130 foot  level-  kept busy trying The No.   7   Mining   Company, Ltd.,  Cole for official  w��s formed in New York in 1900, and  a year later development was resumed  at the mine in   charge of S.

The case attracted  considerable attention at the time by  reason  of   the   amount   of   damages  asked, some $14,500   in  all, and also  because   of the  circumstances   under  which the action was brought.  The action arose from an accident  which occurred at the Mother Lode  mine at Greenwood on Aug. 17, 1908,!  The plaintiff was residing near the  mine with his wife and two children,  employed as a cook. A large boring  was made in the workings of the defendants and shots put in, 22 of five to  nine sticks of dynamite each. No pre  caution was taken except the three  customary whistles for warning. The  result in the Dimmick home was the  death of one child and the injury for  life of Mrs. Dimmick, an arm and both  legs being broken.  The Great Northern Service  Phoenix   does   not  ask   the   Great  Northern to run a palace parlor car to  this city ; local multi-millionaires prefer  to travel without aristocratic airs.     But  when the  Great Northern accepts fare  for a first-class trip out of Phoenix we  demand there should be some effort to  give reasonable service.    A coach and  smoker are pulled into Phoenix daily,  and might be all right if kept clean ���  but when tlie smoker becomes such as  to force smoking  in the so-called first  class coach, and that���say  nothing  of  the cinder topped seals���in turn forces  ladies to the rear  platform, the accom  modation becomes sheer contempt en  the part of the railway company.  That the Boundary people will have  an opportunity of witnessing some fast  hockey this season is now a foregone  conclusion.    Each of the three pioneer  cities  will   be represented  by  teams  that promise to outclass those of for  mer years.    Phoenix has a particularly  likely bunch of hockey colts now get  ting in shape, while Grand Forks has  an aggregation  upon  which  they   pin  confidence   to   hold    the    Boundary  championship   silverware   which   was  gathered in by that city's last season's  team.    And Greenwood" is not to  be  outdone : it has a good bunch of sports  and even if they have not an all-star  septette they are always game enough  to take a chance for any honors that  are being passed around.  Representatives of each of the three  teams met as an executive of the' Boundary Hockey League at the Phoenix  Club on Wednesday evening, those pre  sent   being   Roy   Curran   of   Grand  Forks:    Howard   Cameron   and   H.  Goodeve of Greenwood, and J.  Mc  Creary   and   C' J.   McAstocker   of  Phoenix.    Plans for the   1909-10 season were fully discussed, the  schedule  of games and dates drawn up, and bylaws drafted.    It was arranged to have  twelve games, four in each city and  each team plays in eight games.  The following rules to govern games  in the Boundary Hockey League were  adopted :  1. Executive to consist of two rep-  semalives "from each 'club-^-Phoenix,  Grand Forks and Greenwood. In the  event of~onIy"one Tcprrcw5ntative_being_  present from any town he shall"be entitled to two votes.  2. The series of games for 1909-  10 to consist of two games in each  city by each opposing team.  3. Cup to be played for in competition and held by winning team for  one year.  4. Visiting team to be notified of  official referee three days previous to  game. If said referee be not acceptable, neutral executive shall appoint  referee and visiting team pay his expenses.  5. Visiting  teams shall  pay their  own expenses.  6. In event of default or failure of  visiting team to put in appearance at  any of the games constituting the series,  said visiting team to be liable for all  expenses incurred by the home team.  7. Dates may be changed, if satisfactory to both teams interested.  j     8.    Players must be residents of city  they represent at least'-fifteen "days before taking part in any game of series,  after fust game of series, has been  played ,- *  The  following  schedule-of'games  and dates was drawn up :  Greenwood at Phoenix: *  ���Jrand Forks at-Greenwood-  Phoenix at Grand Forks  Grand Forks at Phoenix  Phoenix at Greenwood  Greenwood at Grand" Forks  Greenwood at Phoenix,   \  Grand Forks at Greenwood <^���*'  Phoenix at Grand Forks '  Grand Forks at" Phoenix ;  Phoenix at Greenwood  Greenwood at Grand Forks  r  -.-���-..   5  "    11.

An   enthusiatic   meeting   of,'those  interested in  hockey   took   place  in  Grand Forks last week when organization for the coming season  was perfected    with   the   following   officers:  Hon. president, W. A. Williams;Hon.  vice president, Ernest Miller, M.P.r ���  president, George Chappie; vice-president, T. S. Watts; secretary-treasurer,  H. M. Mann; manager, Walter Mills;  team committee, R.

Roy Curran was appointed a delegate  to go to Phoenix to  meet representatives from the Greenwood and Phoenix  teams, who will draw up a schedule of  games to be played .during the season.  The Grand Forks team were the winners of the Boundary Hockey League  cup last season, and as there are a. few  new players in  the field this year, it is  anticipated they will endeavor to, retain the championship.

Few  serious firm occurred on Dominion  fanoVin spite of the dryness'of the  season and the consequent risk. The  most sertons fires were at Salmon Arm,  Man-son Cr��ek and White Lake, in  British Columbia; and in the valley of  tbe Spray river in Alberta.  For the B C. fires squattess on  t'mber berths were chiefly responsible  and in one case carelessness on the  part of a lumber company was a pattia'  - cause; for the Spray valley fire tbe  ca-ckssnees of tourists is lesponsible.  By the B.C. fires -200,000 feet, boasd  measure, of timber were destroyed and  so,ooo,ooo feet damaged; the Spray  valley fire hurried about 3,000,000  tick.

Of the great host of dividend paying  mines in British Columbia which were  once, and not so long ago, owned and  controlled in Spokane, but two.still  pay tribute to this city. One of these  is the Sloran Star, and the other, the  Granby. Consolidated Mining. Smel ing  & Power ��� company. The latter concern has an issued capital of $13,500,-  000 and has paid $3 778,630 in dividends to date, including a < isburse-  ment of $270,000 this month. ' The  company's principal mines are at Phoe  "nix, and its smelter at Grand; Eorks.  It is gratifying to remember that the  credit for creating this great institution,  the industrial backbone of the Boundary district, is due to three Spokane  citizens���J. P. Graves, A. L. White  and W. Y. Williams���who still head  its executive and directs its .policies'  and destiny.  Some of the great Biitish Columbia  producers whose relations to Spokane  were al one time even more intimate  t^an are the Granby's today, were the  St. Eugene mine at Moyie, the Payne,  Washington, Reco, Rambler-Cariboo,  Enterprise and many others in the  Slocan district, the Le Roi No. 2 at  Rossland, and the Cariboo mine at  Camp McKinney. The smaller properties which were in the same category  embraced, with one or two notable ex-  cep'.ions, ever.y. producing mine from  the Rockies to the Okanagan river.  Lumping them altogether big and  little, they brought, through profits of  operation and sale, over $20,000,000  to Spokane citizens.���Inland Observer.  Firswell to Paster  Rev. F. W.
