'  Last yeai A. P. McKenzie had a  fine stock ot Clnistnias goods. This  )eai his stock is even better, and is  well woith inspecting.  No special ]evelopments in the  pending deal b .1 veen the Dominion  Copper Co. and the B. C. Copper Co.,  for the transfer of the Brooklyn group  from the former to the latter, have  come to light this week, further than  that \V. H. Thomas, the consulting  engineer of the B. C. Coppei Co., left  early in the week to report to his principals in New York City.  Alter Mi. Thomas' thorough examination and sampling of the vaiious  properties of the Brooklyn group, lasting about two weeks, he took some 300  sacks ot samples, making about seven  wagon loads, to Greenwood with him,  for the purpose of testing. Of couise,  he would say nothing as to the probability of the principals closing the  deal, before he started for the east,  but those in a position to know say  that his report will be generally very  favorable, and that the probability ofa  deal being made soon grows brighter  every day.  Of one thing there can be no doubt.  If the sale is made, it will run well up  into seven figures, for it is said that  according to an estimate recently  made, the ore in sight and blocked  out or ready for stoping will of itself  show a piofit of about $700,000 over  the. cost of extraction and reduction���  figuiing at the present cost.  How soon something definite will be  known cannot be said now, but it  should not be long before the matter  is settled one way or the other. In  the meantime the pumps at the  Brooklyn are kept working, and the  mine kept clear of water. Supt. J. L,  Parker, of the Dominion "Copper- Co.,'^  is keeping'himself busy 'making re-  poifs on the Winnipeg and Golden  Crown, pending the settlement of tlie  proposed deal with the Mothei Lode  people, and it is said, if the deal goes  through, he will be retained under the  new management in bis old position.

" ;  I have just heard that a new railway  is being surveyed in the Snowshoe and  Phoenix districts, connected with tl.e  tireat Nciitheni Railway Company oi  the United States, Construction is  iiii.l likely to take place before next  yejjr; in any event,, however, the railway already constructed connects the  mine with both -Qia.nd Forks and  tireenwood, where theie are '.. smelters  ���the Granby smelter at the formei  |ilace, and the British Columbia, Copper. Company's smelter .at. the latter.  -There;is also-a proposition--to/ build  .if.other smelter, and^rates have been  considerably reduced both for freight  and treatment. '.'-������'���  Inspecting thp contour of the mine,  it surJM-isys.'oneat' once what natural  advantages it posse1 ses for the making  of a .successful mine, having the railway communicating' direct, with the  principal smelters. Whilst I was there  we had the'opportunity of purchasing  some aujoiiiinj; claims called the  Pheasant, aiid two;tract ions, the Alma  and h'airplay. Tnese. claims have  since been embodied in the Snowshoe  group. Mr.W. J. Astley, loimerh  cviiisiiltingeiiijinee'i t�� the Snowshte  mine, has been a|>poiiited stiperintei.-  denl, and will live on the mine itself.  Urge Bodies ol Twenty Dollar Ore.  The news from the mine is excellent.  In''a'private letter to myself, dated 31 si  O.tober, M-.

They   have, shipped' so  far  about 1,500 or 1,600 tons,   and  have  made a contract to ship 100 tons .per  day to the Greenwood smelter just  as  soon as the smelter can' take it,  which  will probably lie three.or four  months  hence.

Together we visited  Mr. Edison, in connection with the  question of reduction of the very particularly silicious ore that is tound on  t;ie Snowshoe. Our visit to Mr. Edison had reference to an invention that  lie dad patented for crushing the ore  and separating the metallic .parts by  magnetic separators.'

Several months ago"sin agen: of the  Commerciai, a 'weekly' trade paper  issued in Winnipeg, made/ a trip  through the province, and incidentally.',  gathered in numerous subscriptions to  his publication. Lately.the Commercial  contained an article.that was decidedly  unfair to-this province, and tended to  give it a black eye with eastern in  vestqrs. It claimed that mines were  shutting up all over the province, business was paralyzed,' etc., etc. ' .  ���������'' "  It is not easy to see why the editor  of the Commercial should go out ol  his way to do all the haiin that he  can to British Columbia. As a matter  of fact, there never were so many  mints beiiig wbiked and : theie n.ever  was so much ore "shipped, as rdtiring  the present year. It is true that, the  boom element has been squeezed out  of the province to a large extent���and  that was a good thing, although some  were hurt by it. If we mistake not.  the Commercial man had a^ very different idea of at least this part of the  province when he warmed a chaii in  the Pioneer office. What has changed  his opinion ?   .  m  Here is what the to. C. Trade  Budget of Vancouver has to say of ihe  Commercial diatribe:  "Oneor two good workers who would  indu8trip\jsl.v write on the lines adopted  by the Commi-reial'a artist, 'ancl ��� sufficient publicity being granted, woull be  able to do all the paralyzing that BiitMi  Columbia could stand. ,;There would be  no fear of capital comintj. into the country  if the would-be investors could get hold  of enough trushsurh as the above quotation. The Commercial man wants 10 go  uwity back and sit down. He will be-  ���coim* notoriniiB if that sort of thiiu is  dislied up rcgaidiiiK BVC. There would  be no need for anyone to j;etuji a laboi  agitationor a stiike in'tlie province. It  the outside world is l.ept sufiieicnllv  supplied with articles of the tone of llii:  gi'-in there is no fearof t|ie country Iieing over run With capitalists; looking fin  inveHtnientp.  " I he utter foolishness of the hem the  Commercial has'been weak enough to  print is made worse by the���'ah'ysnial  ignorance ilii-played b;/ the writer in  t liking of the 'SwuiiMeaiif Wales.' An-  ten year old school hoy'who could not  correct him by pointing out that he vvt.s  trying to spell the name of-the chief  Mueller tnwri of I hi; principality and not  the name of a linn of huirlness ii.en,  would be at i|)u fuut'.of hiselasH.
