Boundary Mining Notes.  * *+++****++���*++++++++++,  �������� ���*-* ������� ��� ��� ���>  ���*���*��*�������������*�����*  Tuesday was monthly payday at the  Snowshoe mine. With the amount  then paid out the total for this camp  this month was about $55,000.  Now that arrangements have been  completed foi shipping from both sides  of the claim, the tonnage from the  Emma is expected to be materially  increased.  ohipments from the Athelstan are  now going to the Greenwood smelter  The syndicate owning it have made  the final payment of $8,ooo on the  Jickpot, adjoining.  It is now estimated that the total of  the ore shipments of the Boundary for  the full year of 1903 will be about  675,000 tons, or about one-third more  than for the previous vear.  THE  P  No More Shipments Till Matter is Settled.  OPERATIONS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED  ���*��.  In the December issue of the B, C.  Mining Record is an article by Geo.  E. Cole, of Phoenix, on mining with  steam shovels in tin's camp, illustrated  profusely from several photographs of  the shovels at work.  This week a force of some 20 men  have been at work .preparing- the  grade and laying the steel on the unfinished, pot lion of the C. P. R. spur  to the Brooklyn and Stemwinder  dumns, for the purpose of being able  to ship the ore.  Manager McVicar, of the E. P. U.  and Gold Finch mines, has finished  the 1,000 foot gravity tramway, which  will greatly faciitate the sending out of  shipments of ore to the Greenwood  smelter. A car of 18 tons of Gold  Finch ore was ��er,t out last week.  Shortly after the first of the year  the incline shaft on the Piovidence,  which is now down 183 feet, will be  deepened. This mine which is ship  ping about two cars of high grade ore  per month, has jj2.n1pn.-vn itc i.ayiaiL.  Most of the ore now goes to the  Greenwood smelter.  Active diamond drilling at the Volcanic mine, on the North Fork of  Kettle river, has been started by  Boyles Bros., the contractors. Alex.  Mead, M. E., of Marquette, Mich.,  has arrived in the Boundary to assume  the positioii of engineer for tbe syndicate that lately bonded theVolcanic.  H. H. Shallenberger, in charge of  the development being prosecuted on  Ihe Doni Pedro claim, one Qf llv  group owned by the Chicago and B.  C. Mining Co., in Skylark camp, is  sinking a new shaft farther ud the hill  than the old shaft, and is arranging for  winter quarters for the force of men.  Mr. Shallenberger is asking for tendeis  to sink 100 feet.  A report from Grand Forks states  that the Granby company has a number of engineers at work on smelter  hill, engaged in making a preliminary  survey in connection with the projected enlargements of the plant or for  the construction of a sepaiate and detached plant. This will afford data  from which the officials will be able to  make estimates. The date of the  commencement of construction, however, has not yet been considered.  At the Elkhorn, adjoining the Providence, a force of 14 men is kept busy  developing and taking out high grade  ore. Tbe balance of $5,000 on the  bond on this property was paid last  week by McDonald and Sutherland to  C. I.. Thomet, of Midway, who owned  the mine. The new owners will keep  right on working the property, having  practically paid the entire cost of the  mine from the net pioceeds of the ore  shipped.  Dr. Simmons, of Greenwood, who  was in this city this week, and is one  of those who have taken a bond and  lease for $10,000 on the Roderick  Dhu, in Long Lake camp, states that  seveial tons of ore are ready for shipment as soon as there is snow enough,  In the meantime development is being continued. Some exceedingly  high assays have been obtained ol late  from this property. The property  should prove a good thing for Dr.  Spankie, Dr. Gordon, Mr. Mc(3on  nell and others, who are also interested in it,  It li Thought Negotiation Now In Prorrm  Will Be Completed Eirly !��� January���  Mine has Shipped Ovtr M0.MO Tuna.  Last Friday the sawmill owned by  W. Powers, near Midw.-.y, was burned,  entailing a loss of several thousand  dollars, with small insurance. Several buildings were also burned.  After uninterrupted development lor  some five years, the Snowshoe mine  management has decided to temporarily suspend operations, till.definite arrangements are"made for the company  to own or secure an interest in a smelter. To get the best results from the  ore this is deemed absolutely essential  by the management. '.In accordance  with this decision, late last week Supi>.  Astley let out most of the men employed at the property, and this week  the last shipments of ore were made  and the balance of the employees, with  the exception of the foreman, J. H.  Trevorrow, and the office force, were  laid off for the time being,  Mr. Astley was.interviewed by the  Pioneer man, and asked as to when he  thought there would be a resumption  of work and shipments. He stated  that he could not set a definite date,  but that the step was taken, after considering the matter in all.its aspects, it  being decided to wait the outcome of  present pending smelting- arrangements- Mr. Astley did not expect the  suspension to last for a long time, and  did not know but that, shortly after  Christmas, there might be some news  of a favorable nature'jn regard to  future opciutiunsr*- . * _������-���.���.-������������  Ii appears that the Snowshoe for  some time shipped-its ore to the  Greenwood smelter, and* a year  ago changed to the Boundary Falls  smelter, it being understood that some  400 tons should be sent out daily. As  a matter of fact, for the last month or  two the shipments have not averaged  more than 250 tons daily, while the  mine is prepared to maintain a steady  output of somtwhere between 600 and  1,000 tons each 24 hours.  For some months it has been com  mon knowledge that ihe officials ol  the Snowshoe Gold and Copper Mines,  Ltd., and those of the B. C. Copper  Co., Ltd., owning the Greenwood  smelter, have been considering the  amalgamation ot the two companies, at  least so far as the smelter is concerned.  At one time it was even announced  that the deal had been completed, but  this was premature.  Sometime towards the end of Decern  ber the annual meeting of the Snow-  shoe corporation is to be held in London, and it is, said that in January the  B. C. Copper Co. will also hold its  annual meeting in New York. If an  amalgamation is arranged it will  doubtless be ratified at these meetings.  In the meantime nothing will be done  at the mine, but the pumps have not  been drawn as yet.  It goes almost without saying that  the directors of the Snowshoe have  been well pleased with the results of  the development so systematically carried on for several years by Supt. Astley and Foreman Trevorrow. It is  equally well known that there is no  scarcity of ore, but on the contrary,  iherc is more ore av.ailable.in the mine  now than ever in its history, notwithstanding the fact that, all told, something like 100,000 tons have been  shipped to the different smelters. We  are assured also that there is a satis-  fatory profit in the ore under the right  conditions, and it is these conditions  that the management now proposes to  endeavor to bring about. That success will crown their efforts there is  not a shadow ol a doubt to those best  informed on the subject, as the men  interested in the Snowshoe are amply-  able to carry out any undertaking they  may engage in. It, therefore, seems  certain that at no distant date, when  the Snowshoe does resume, it will employ a larger force than ever before,  and will ship much more extensively.  New Invention For Drilling,  The London   Mining Journal in a  recent issue gives an   interesting  description of a new  invention,   a   rock-  boring machine designed to reduce the  number   of men  employed  in hand-  drilling by dispensing with  a  man to  hold the   drill-steel.      The   machine  coi.sists of a  cylinder  in   which   the  drill is held, and in which there isalsc.  a spring to set the steel again  for another blow, and a  ratchet  movement  for altering the position  of  the  drill-  steel edge.    The  miner  striking  the  drill stands with one foot on  an  iron  plate, and when ths blow has been delivered he simultaneously releases the  footplate by which the spring ratchet  movement is brought into play,  and  thus sets the  tool for  another  blow.  The machine is. very   compact   and  portable, and is adapted for either face  working   with  tripod  stand,  or  with  spreader bar for work in mine levels in  any position and at any  angle.    It is  claimed for the machine that the tool,  which is inexpensive, will save its cost  in a few weeks by dispensing with the  services of a holder-up and by cleaner  and more rapid   drilling.    At  a  trial  the  machine  worked   well  in   either  sandstone   or granite,   and    seemed  adapted for unskilled labour.  PAIDOUTSUM  OF $133,630  Granby Dividend Cheques Sent  Thursday.

The printei's boy was devoted to the  minister's daughter, and she finally  prevailed upon him to go to church.  Whether her father knew of their coming is not definitely settled, but there  is evidence that he did, for he gave  out as his text, "My daughter is  grievously tormented with a dsvil."  The printer's boy has been a little  afraid of churches ever since.���Chicago Pq$t,  A man generally shows his worst  s.ide when we get the best of him.  In accordance  with the  announcement made in advance some few weeks  ago,   the Granby   Consolidated  this  week made the   payment  of the  first  dividend  ever paid  by that or any  other company in the  Boundary   that  is operating on low grade ores.    The  amount so distributed   was $133,630,  which is the  equivalent   of  one   per  cent,   quarterly  on   the  issued  share  capital of the  corporation,  or at the  rate of nearly ten per   cent,   on   the  selling price  of  the  shares,   which is  now about $4' per share.    It is  anticipated that  similar  dividends  will be  distributed every three months.     .... ���  While this is itself a notable feature,  that the low grade mines are beginning  to make returns to stockholders,  it,is  also a fact that, so far as  the records  show, no mining company operating in  British Columbia has as yet  paid out  so large a sum at one time before.  It is a well known fact:. that the  Granby Co. has not a dollar of indebtedness of any kind, and that the company has funds in the treasury. It is  also no cM'ot that tne'extensive"'' Ihv"  provements have been paid for from  the earnings of the company. ���  ��� Last Thursday, the 16th; the dividend cheques were mailed ; to shareholders from the head office in Mont  real.  Jay P. Graves and H. N. Galer, of  the Granby Co., arrived in camp on  yesterday's train.  Reduced Christmas Rates.  For some years past it has been the  custom of the C. P. R. to make special excursion rates to eastern. points  from the Northwest at Christmas time.  Hertofore this privilege has not been  accorded Kootenay residents, but it  is now announced that during the remainder of the month first class tickets to Toronto, Montreal and other  eastern points, good for three months,  will be sold at any C. P. R. ticket office in Kootenay for the sum of $74.50,  a reduction of practically 50 per cent,  in the regular fare. District passen-  rer agent, J. S. Carter, of Nelson, will  cheerfully give further particulars upon application.  Blaze at Stemwinder Motel.  Tuesday evening in passing the  Stemwinder hotel, the Pioneer man  noticed dense volumes of smoke pouring fiom the roof. An alarm was at  once turned in and the fire department turned out, having a stream of  water on tlie fire in a short time, and  the blaze was quickly extinguished.  The building which is owned by the  Mullin Bros., is insured, and the damage was not heavy, although no one  seems to know how th; fire originated,  unless from a defective chimney. Had  the fire not been discovered as it was,  the damage might have been pretty-  heavy.  Two Urge Christmas Trees.  ,:.,-:-  Next week there will be two large  Christmas trees, one each for the Sunday Schools of the Presbyterian and  Methodist churches. .,..���   ��,  Tuesday evening the  Presbyterians  will hold their festival at  the church,  for which Mrs. Mills,   Mrs.   Willcox,  Mrs; Porter and Mrs. Crawford have  been making preparations for several  weeks.   The children will go through  a number of drills and exercises,, aft,e,r  which.the presents will be. distributed  from the tree.    Either Dr. Wright, of  Nelson, or Rev. J. R.,,Robertson, of  Grand Forks, will   be   preseut.    The  exercises-will commence- sharp-at-8  o'clock, mine time.    Presents for the  tree must be brought to   the   church  early in. the afternoon   of Tuesday.  There will be a plate at the door for  any who may wish to donate  towards  the expenses.  Preparations are all but completed  for the Methodist Sunday School  Christmas tree next Wednesday evening in Hardy hall.' A full programme  has been prepared which will please,  delight and entertain, a good time being assured. All the children are invited and each will receive a box of  ���good things.' The parents and friends  are especiaily invited. Parents wishing to place presents on-the-tree' are  requested to have them at the hall  Wednesday afternoon, if possible.    ;  Presbyterians Call a Pastor.  At a congregational meeting of St.  Andrews Presbyterian church, held  Thursday evening in the church, it  was unanimously decided to extend a  call to Rev. E. W. C. MacColl,. who  is now located at Moyie, and who has  occupied this pulpit several times in  the past year. Rev. J. R. Robertson,  of Grand Forks, moderated in the call  and with another, to be appointed by  the board of'trustees, will represent the  church in the Presbytery meeting,  which will be held next week atGrand  Forks to consider the call. The congregation thinks that .Mr. MacColl  willaccept, and hopes he will begin  his work here early in January.   .  Yesterday the fermal call had some  50 signatures and can be seen at the  store of G. E. Dey.  Pale Line Completed. ,  Contractor Barber, who has had the  work of installing the four mile pole  line, by which the power from Cas-  cade will be extended from Phoenix to  Greenwood, for the purpose of operating the Greenwood smelter by electricity, has completed his contract,  that of clearing the right of way and  setting the poles. Mr. Barber : has  made a good job of it, and, the work  being done, has broken camp. The  contract for the stringing of the wire,  which is mostly on the ground, has  not been let yet, but is not a large undertaking. If the transformers arrive  in time, some time early in. the new-  year, the Greenwood smelter should  be able to utilize some of the power  from the falls of the Kettle river at  Cascade.  All After The Office.  Three lawyers and two newspaper  men are among the prospective candidates for the Liberal nomination at  the convention at Kamloops on January 131I1. The lawyers are D. Murphy, of Ashcroft, and J. D. Sw*nson  and A. D. Macintyre, of Kamloops.  The men of the fourth estate are Duncan Ross of the Greenwood Times  and Dr. Wade, editor of the Inland  Sentinel, Kamloops. An effort to induce Hewitt Bostock, theformei member, to run, has not met with   success.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

It means that  when operations are resumed, that the  Snowshoe will employ more men than  ever before in its history.  About the first of the year, or shortly thereafter, the Special Illustrated  Issue of the Pioneer is expected to be  out. A large number of the illustra  lions have already been received, aiid  more are on the way for this issue. It  is intended to be the most complete  publication of the kind ever issued in  the Boundary���just what every one  will want from one to ten copies of.  Have 'yoVordered yours yet ?  :.THAT LONG TUNNEL PROJECT.     -  With the announcement that the  Granby Co. has applied to the legislature to have its charter amended so  that, when the time has arrived, it can  run a long tunnel to tap' the gigantic  ore bodies of this camp at great depth,  comes the information from the local  press of Greenwood and Grand Forks,  that the project will be of great direct  benefit to each of those places���each  apparently thinking that the mouth of  the tunnel will be within a short distance, more or less, of their respective  pbstofnees.   It is thus quite apparent  that   th*"   editorc. reftwMJ-hJ-atc   not  really posted on" the intentions of the  Granby Co., but have taken their cue  from some of the highly colored reports pub! shed on the outside about  this great'project.  'I'he first dividend ever paid by a  low grade mine in the Boundary Is due  this week from the Granby'Co. As  stated before, it amounts to $133,630,  with the promise of the same amount  or more being distributed every three  months. 'This is an event that has  been looked forwaid to for years, and  while ��� some thought the day would  never come, the best informed knew  better, and their judgment is being  fully justified. For all that the eye of  mortal man can see, there is no reason  why these distributions should not  take place for generations to'come.  t WHAT EDITORS SAY j  ���        ��� ���  rtftTMcoiriflm���t^om\n  ...British  Columbia copper is now an important  factor in the world's supply of that  metal.

Now) in the first place, there is no  intention of starting this long tunnel  for some time to come, there being ore  enough in sight in the'Granby mines  at the present levels to last for many-  years yet, even with an output of 2,000  or even 3,000 tons per twenty-four  hours. By the time that tunnel is in  use, it is doubtful if there are many  of us still here, if changes continue to  occurrin the natural course of events, ��� -  in the future, as they.have in the past~.lun<3��uotedly  a great disappointment  to its enemies.

The Giant Mining company ol  Rossland has appealed to its share-,  holdeis to take up shares held foi  working capital, the object being t��  raise funds for the installation of re  duction woiks to save the rarer metals  cairied by Giant ores, such as cobalt  aiid molybdenum.  Mr. Gaide, manager of the Payne  mine at Sandon, says that the new  zinc plant lecently completed at that  properly is working most successfully,  the grade of the 4^-43 per cent, zine  having been raised to 57-58 per cent.,  while a very desiml��u product lor the  smelter market is being made.  Last week's Rossland ore shipments  were large, and the tonnage for tlie  year will probably exceed 400,000 tons  by a small maigin. This will be a  handsome increase in tonnage oyer the  best pievious year, Details of the'  shipments were: Le Roi, 5,760 tons;  Centre Star, 1,500; War Eagle,  1,290; Le Roi No. 2, 410; Le  Roi No. 2, (milled") 350; Jumbo  i2o;Spitzee, 60.

He is just like his father���jos  have to learn him with a club. Pound  iipledneinto lum. I want him to gel  it, and don't pay no attenshun to what  his father says, I'll handle him."  Again the Chicago professor has astonished the world by the originality ot  his views and the profundity of his deductions. He says: :'.'".iVhen people  leave off bathing there will be little or  nothing for the doctors to do. Pneumonia, colds and a hundred other ills  result from the foolish habit of washing  the body. To bathe is to be dirty, foi  you thereby make a sewer of lhe skin.  Blood, attracted by the skin, gives up  products that should be left to seek a  natural outlet, and soils the skin.''  This must be regarded as an important  pronouncement by those who grudge  ihe time devoted to "tubbing." Bui  what will the doctors and the plumbers  do for a livelihood? And what is to become of the undertakers?  Ml  Last week the Victoria Colonist celebrated its 45th bjuhday, having betn  st'ailed December 11, 1858, as tl.e  weekly Biitish Colonist. It,is plcas^  ing to note that the Colonist is still a  leading journal in the province, aid  set ins lo improve with age, having  pidbably the best news seivice of ai y  daily in the'province.  ����� '  ��� With the statement that the Com-  oorne Miner h<is changed hands also  comes the announcement from the te-  liring proprietor that he has always  lost money in publishing the papei>  and that it is time for a change. It  does not take a person very long to  learn that those who make any monej  in this business are few and far between. And yet, strange to say, there  are always some people ciazy to get into it, poor things!  John II. Tonkin, recently manager  of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., is  said to be a fugitive from justice, and  wauants are out for his arrest, there  being several serious charges filed  against him. Mr, Tonkin was for a  long time pretty nearly lhe "whole  thing" in Fernie, the East Kjotenay  coal towli, and was indeed conspicuous  from the 'trouble that arose between  himself and the miners. The worst  of ii was that a lot of the trouble was  eutiiely uncalled for, and was piovoked  by his .overbearing manner in heating  his employees; This was most in evidence when the conciliation committee was attempting to settle the coal  miners' strike there last winter, and is  testified to by several members of the  cimmittee. Much of that trouble  might have been avoided, is the con  census of opinion. Over it all, it ap  pears that Mr. Tonkin was a^gra'CU-'1"  in the most offensive sense of that  term. Kootenay is well rid of that  kind of people.  ���Ml  .The habit of buying outside your  town seems to be so ingrained iu some  people that they succumb to the temptation when they can do better right  at home. A,case in point is that of a  business concern of Phoenix that re  cently sent away to have sonic printing  done without getting figures here fust.  As a result the same price was paid  for the goods, with express charges  added. Talk about the wisdom of  Solomon���he 'was not in it for a  minute.  Ml  In another case a lady wanted something for her child. Supposing it  could not be had locally, she sent to  liimothy Teaton's for it only lo find  later that the same article was in the  local stores al the Tea ton pi ice. She  was out the express, and took chances  on not getting a fit.

Co., P'MOENix, B. C.  The people Of Chir-ogo oro   ayilntoa  by the question wheiher music ought  io be played at meals, observes a contemporary. Al the risk of repealing  a platitude, it seems to us that every  thing depends on the kind of music.  Nobody admires lhe man who gives  an imitation of a flute obligato, while  laking his soup. The people of the  United States are generally accused 01  eating too fast, and if so iheir digestion  would be improved by an andante  movement, which would induce them  to follow Gladstone's rule of 32 cliew>  to evety bite. Gladstone lived to be  some S6 years of age, and in his la^i  yeais he was accustomed to take 32  mile walks. We must attribute this  partly to his andante and piano style  of absoibing nourishment. Notwithstanding the numerous remarks in  favor of a strenuous life, we decline to  give our indorsement to the strenuous  meal.  Recently there was a sale of town  lots in the Rossland assessment district, including the Boundary, for non  payment of taxes. Only four persons  attended the sale, which took place in  Rossland last week, although about  1,300 parcels of land were offered al  auction. Nine-tenths of the parcels  were lots platted in boom towns in lhe  Boundary.in early days, and yet not a  single newspaper in ihe Boundary  contained the notice of this impoitant  sale. It is not too much to say that  probably not a dozen persons in the  Boundary knew of the sale, as few here  read a Rossland weekly paper, in which  the notice appeared.  �����  Is it any wonder that lhe sale was a  fizzle, or that but ten sales, all told,  were made ? We should say not. On  ihe contiary, look at Nelson, where  the sale was well advertised. It was  well attended, and as a consequence,  many sales were made.  ���"  The fact is that J. B. Mckilligan,  of VicyOiia, the government surveyor  of taxes, who has charge of these matters, still seems to think that the  Boundaiy should be treated as the fag  end ot Ro��sland. It is such senseless  blunders as this that costs the goyern-  ijnent many a needed dollar. Doubt-  legs the sale in Rossland, above re-  feired to, cost the government in the  neighborhood of $300, and it is ex-  tiemely doubtful it that much was  realized at the sale itself. Mr. Mc  Killigan should study the geography  of the province. He could learn something even from the ancient maps still  issued from Victoria,.  Of couise, it goes without saying  that there are some tilings that stores  in small places do not carry, and for  such there is no other recourse than  to send away, but most enterprising  storekeepers will procure anything not  in stock, and the puichaser ran see  that it is satisfactory before paying for  same���an item that is worth considering. Suppose the article does cost a  lew cents more than in Toronto, is it  not worth a little more to do business  in the far west? Reader, do not you  Hf\ lu-tter wages Or salary than if you  lived in Ontario or Quebec? We know  of a woman who sent to Toronto for  a paii of lubbers, cost 75 cents, and  paid expiess on same, total cost $1.00.  I'hey did not fit when received, but  the local storekeeper had the same  goods lor sale at 65 cents. And this  is not an isolated case, either.  The attiaction in sending away foi  goods seems to be almost irresistible  to some persons, but after all, should  you not give the pation.ige to youi  home stores when conditions are any  wheie nearly equal? Just think-it  over, and we are sure that the thousands ol eastern catalogues coming in  to this countn will gradually grow less  and less.  Ml  The diffeienee between the first and  last press notices in some of the Kootenay papers, which were given to Senator Hamden's -Serenaders, the aggregation of colored artists (?) which recently came to grief, is marked, indeed. They remind one of some 01  the old "before and after taking"  patent medicine ads.  An Unprecedented  Offer to our Subscribers.  BOTH NEW AND OLD.

Nearly every number was a e;em that was  thoroughly enjoyed by those who were  present at Miners' Union halh  -The' entertainment and dance for  thebesefUofthe local Anglican church  at Miners' Union hall, Monday evening, drew a fair audience. The Greenwood Dramatic Club presented "A  Family Affair," a laughable farce, and  and this was followed by a dance for  several hours. A comfortable sum  was realized.  Work on the Special Issue of the  Pioneer, to consist of a complete description of the working mines and  smelters of the Boundary, illustrated  with about 5�� half-tone engravings,  was started this week. Owing to the  delay iri. securing some of the engravings, and to the growing s ze of the  issue, it will not apj>ear till shortly after the first of the year. You will miss  it if you do not get a copy or two.  ��� Tuesday evening at Miners' Union  halll, G. C. McLaughlin succeeded��iii  throwing Chris Mack, of Phoenix,  three tintes inside of an hour.
