A very enjoyable evening was "-pent  by the large number who attended the  children's entertainment last Monday  iitght at Miners' Union Hall,  '.' Tl?e entertainment consisted of a  cantata, /entitled "Santa's Surprise,"  which'wash.complete successY The  children had been trained by.'Geb. 1)Y  ! Turner, who directed throughout, as  sisted by Mrs. Reid Crowell, who ac  companieu on the piano, and Miss E.  Hawthorne, who. trained three choruses of small girls. The heaviest parts  were taken by Bertha Heideman, who  was a poor little match girl, and Miss  Hawthorne, as Miss Kindheart, the  president of'the mission band. Each  of them rendered excellent solos, being well, received by the audience.,  'The remainder of the concert was-  comprised of a duet Mrs. Ciairier and  Mrs. Crane, a quartet, choiuses and  dialogue, Santa Glaus putting in an  .appearance, as usual. All the good  things for the children were found inside a iaige mowball together with his  grandson whom he thought was lost in  an accident they had on the way.  The perfoi mance showed plainly  tl*at"*l: great deal of care had been  takerr" by those who had the concert in  chaige, as the children did remarkably  well*.'   .  'I he patents, as well as others who  were present in goodly numheis, were  somewhat sui prised to hem our fifty  children's voices in the choruses, cap  able ol canying them through in such  excellent style, and herewith make a  public expression of their appreciation  to those who in any way assisted in  making this concert a success.

It is some months since the Miners'  Union of Phoenix have given a ball,  and they me now making ready for  one in which to see the old year out  and.the new year in. It will be a  masquerade ball, and arrangements  have been made by McRae Bros. &  Smith to secme a supply of costumes  which will be rented at reasonable  rates for the occasion. The best ol  music has been engaged, and the following committees au|>ointed to have  charge of the affair :  Reception committee���Thos. Kel-  ley, J. S. Boyce, J no. M. Baker, Ben  J. Bell, O. Johnson and Frank Dalton.  Floor committee���Fred.'' Wiflcs,'  'I'hos. Lyons, Hany McKay, Arthur  Aikrhan, W. S. Cook and Geo. Cox.  The management of the Snowshoe  mine has decided to sink a new ..shaft  to a* depth of 300 feet, which wili be  the main working shaft of the property.  Just as sooii as the engineer, Mr. Ban -  nantyne, can make the necessary survey to decide upon the exact location,  the woik of sinking will be started. It  will piobably be located about 100  feet south of the switch, and will be  two compartments in width. These  two compartments will be used foi  hoisting purposes only, the olu incline  shaft to be used for nianway, pumps  and air line.  Eaily this week two machines, em  ploying 12 men, were laid off at the  Snowshoe. These machinas weie  used for stoping oie, and the local  management decided that they would  not make much of an attempt to ship  for a while yet, taking out only the  ore encountered in the course ol development. Theie are now al.out 25  men employed at the .mine, and as  soon as the work of sinking the new  shaft is under full headway���probably  in the couise of a couple of weeks,  and perhaps sooner���jt is expected  that three more machine dulls will be  set at work, with the ��� necessary complement of men.  The new 15 diill compressor, now  being manufactured by the fenckes  Machine Co., of Sherbiooke. Quebec,  will be rushed to completion as fast as  possible, and should be on hand in a  couple of months. It will be erected  at a point a little distance outside ol  what is known as the Railway tunnel.

Veddei, the well known  insiiiance man of that city, had committed suicide. Mr. Vedder, who had  patted lioin his associate, R. R. Cunningham, but half an Injur before, was  found at 1.30 in his back office by J.  W. Haitline with two bullet holes in  his head. Everything possible was  done for him, but he expired yesterday  morning at 4 o'clock.  No motive for the fearful deed has  yet been found, and no one heard the  fatal shots from the 38 caliber revolver  which was used. Mr. Vedder was not  known to be troubled in a financial  way 01 olheiwise. He was not a hard  diinker, hut was a hustler and a good  business man, getting business where  others lailed, He was a Mason, under  the auspices ol which the funeral is to  be held. The inquest was held yesterday.  Piobably no one was better known  to the business men all over the Boun-  daiy than Mr. Vedder, as he has been  making fier(uent visits to this section  loi four or five years, and about a year  ago he moved to Gieenwood from  Spokane with his family and took up  his peimanent residene. He left a  wile ,uid lour daughteis, the oldest ten  jeais ol age, the widow being utterly  piosti.ited at the terrible news,  understood that Mr. Vedder  $10,000 insurance on his life.  W. H. Reed, Chinese inspector for  the United States government, with  headquaitci.s at Victoria, has been  j making some investigations along the  boundary line in the Boundary country  i lately, and this week was in Phoenix.  He did not visit the Boundary's chief  mining centie on official business, however, but came to spend Cliristmas  with his old friends, Air. and Mrs. J.  li. Boyle, whom he had known in Vic-  tori.    He left on Thursday's train.'  It is said that there has been, some  extensive smuggling of Chinese from  British   Columbia   into   the   United  States   of  late,   especially  from the  Kootenays and the Boundary.   In this  section the headquarters of operations  seem to be at Grand Forks, and while  in that place Mr. Reed conferred with  the U. S. customs officials at  Nelson,  Wash.    Chinamen near the line, it is  said,   have  fieely   boasted   that  they  could safely deliver in Spokane by an  undeigiound route on payment of fifty  dollars.    It is said the gang  conducting these illegal opperations is assisted  by Chinese, who, in oider to  deceive  the  authorities,   have   established   a  series  of   market  gaidens  extending  south from near the boundajy.

The Alabama group, near Nelson,  Wash., acioss the line, has resumed  shipments of ore to the Granby smelter, at the ra'e of loui tons daily.  The Greenwood and Nelson smelters are sending about 35 tons of matte  daily to Giand Forks to be treated at  the new Granby copper converter.  It is now repoited that the Granby  company will likely erect a refineiy  during next year when die entiie  metallurgical process will be carried  out in Grand Forks.

Just as the yeai 1901 is ending it is  interesting to note the progress that  has been made in the  Boundary  for  the last twelve months.   The^Jfigures  ithat tell the tale'are those of  the - tonnage���'he amount of ore that has been  shipped   from   our   mines.      These  figures relate a truly wonderful  story,  and as it is a true story  it is all  the  more interesting to the  mining  man  and layman alike.  Of the various shipping mines in  the Boundary, there are three' that are  < head and shoulders above all others.  These are the   Granby^mines,   the  Mother Lode and  the B.  C.  mine,'  each in a different camp.   During the  ���  ,year 1900 these three properties ship-:  ped respectively 64,533 ^tons,  5.34��'  tons and 19,494 tons.    While the final  figures for 1901 are of course not yet  available, the tonnage for_a_Il but. a_fe.iv'  days show that the increase of each  is  very large, as compared with 1,900.     !  1  For, instance,  the Granby mines,  now the leaders in the province,*' will  have shipped this year about 230,000  tone, or m'orethan four" times the, ton-,  nage of. 1900.    The Mother Lode will  have shipped about 87,000 tons, or 16  tjmes the tonnage of 1900.   The B.  C. mine will have shipoed about 45,-  000'tons; or more than twice that sent  out in 1900.   And this ore was nearly  all smelted right at home.  Of course; in making' comparisons,  it must be remembered that shipments  only began In most of the ' mines late  in the year 1900; after the railway into  the Boundary, with its branches, was  finally.-, completed. Nevertheless the  showing is a most encouraging one.  has improved very hugely in   the last) helps those who help themselves.

BRITISH COLUMBIA MINING NOTES.  mines   shipped  Coast politics are still in a much  mixed condition, and the Moses that  will lead the politicians out of the  wilderness does not seem to have put  in his appearance yet. Several are  aspiring to the honor, but they keep  pretty quiet about it.  Generally speaking, the press of the  province agrees that Senator Temple-  man, of Victoria, will be a most acceptable representative of this province  in. 1 the Dominion cabinet. The  province is certainly entitled to this  much recognition, and the editor of  the Victoria Times would do us credit.  Marconi, has established the fact  that"he"can~use his wifeless-telegraphy  across the ocean, and the possibilities  of its expansion are beyond human  power1 to predict. In the meantime,  the powerful cableA companies see. a  stalwart rival loomingNip in Marconi,  and are making him all the trouble  they can. But th *y cannot- stop the  march   of  events.  TANGLED COPPER SITUATION.  As the days go by but little more  light is thrown upon the reason as to  the recent fall in the price- of' copper,  with the exception that Amalgamated  is reported to have held up the price  forsome time, and allowed those outside the ringto' reap the benefit at their  expense, and now the Amalgamated  people^propose to sell at whatever price  they can get, with the result that the  price immediately(tumbles. The firit  result of this that is predicted is  that the small "producers will have to  suspend operations, and especially  those that are working on the closest  margins and without subsidiary values  in the ores.  In the Boundary the margins are  not large, and if the price gets too low,  and continues for any length of time,  there can be but one result. Jim  there seems to a well defined feeling  that the present low price for the red  metal will not continue for any extended length of time, but that copper'will  recover and hold its own. During the  last week a well known Boundary  smelter man declined to accept ore  and pay for same at the price that  will rule in New York in 30 days, for  the reason that he thought the price of  copper would then be much higher  than at present. '  ��� Jfcumors as to the cause and ultimate effect of the present unsettled  state of the copper market are legion,  and it is not easy to separate the wheat  from the chaff. Evidently some of the  hig iellows are in for a fight, and it  goes without saying that some one will  get hurt befoie the smoke of battle is  cleared away. It seems to be the general idea that the matter will be settled before much, if any, harm is done  That the,. Boundary country is  rapidiy becoming the smelting centre  is proved by - the fact that the Hall  Mines smelter at Nelson has recently  entered into a contract to have matte  treated by the converter now nearing  completion by the Granby Co. at  Grand Forks, and has begun the  delivery of the matte. The Mother  Lode smelter made a similar contract  sometime ago, and in due time the  Trail smelter will probably do likewise.  A "couple of-months ago the Pioneer  estimated that the ore production for  the Boundary for the year 1901 would  reach a total"*of 375,000 tons. Although "the year is not quite yet closed,  and therefore definite totals cannot be  made up, E. Jacobs, the Greenwood  correspondent, says that the total will  reach 385,000 tons. This is based on  allowing November and December at  least- the same average. There is  every,reason to believe that the tonnage for the coming year will be more  than twice that for this year.  Last week  Sandon  487 tons of ore.  Platinum has lisen 50 per cent, and  is now $21 an ounce.  Rossland's oie shipments for last  week weie 6,050 tons.  The proposed smelter, at Kaslo, will  treat ores without the aid of fluxes.  The Arlington mine, Slocan, has  shipped 5,000 tons of ore this year.  A strike of 3,000 ounce ore has  been made on the Ottawa gioup at  Slocan city.  The English Mining Journal regards  the depression in the copper market  as temporary.  The Slocan has fifty shipping mines,  a record not equalled in America. All  are silver-lead mines.  A $2 per ton reduction is smelting  charges is expected on all ores running  over 15 per cent. lead.  -Lardeau mine owners -are packing  ore to Twin Falls, the wither terminus  of the Arrowhead & Kootenay railway.  The Goodenough, Slocan, paid a  dividend of one cent per share this  month, and will pay another on January 15th. ;"       ',__,   . __._ __ _ _  The Nettie L. mine, in the Lardeau,  has marketed 880 tons of silver ore,  the gross value of which was $72 per  ton or $63,380.  The output of the Frank coal mines  on the Crow's Nest road is 250 Ton's  a day, to be increased to 1,000 tons.  The mines now supply coke to Trail.  A Spokane silver-lead mine-ownei  thinks there will be a marked rise in  lead shortly. He gives as a reason  that the lead surplus is being steadily  reduced.  The Ramblei-Cariboo, Slocan, will  double its dividend after January 1st,  paying a cent a share per month. The  mine has $50,000 to $60,000 to its  credit and will ooen the mine to the  600-foot level.   Stock is at 68 cents.

Smith Curtis' Platform.  In a letter to the Victoria Times,  Mr. Smith Curtis virtually announces  the main planks of his platform, which  may be briefly stated as follows:  1. A Redistribution Act to be  given the precedence over all other  legislation.  2. Referendum as to whether  Coast Kootenay railway should be built  as a Government work or as a competitive line.  3. The purchase of the E. & N.  railway, its land grants and coal mines.'  4. No land giants to railways.  to the copper rintereits'rtf .C V"'"! - s'   /J'**e PrinciPle of Government  irv ��J1 .

The price of molybdenum having  been discussed, the following information regarding productions and price  in the United States, is taken from  Mining Industry:  1899���Molybdenite,   production    89  short tons, value $50 per ton.  Molybdenum,  production  9,550  pounds, value $1.25 per pound.  1900���Molybdenite,   production   189  short tons, value $50 per ton.  Molybdenum, production 30,000  pounds, value $1.25 per pound.  No production was reported in 1898.  It may also be pointed out that  ore  unless running 22 per cent,   molybde  ntiii! is not purchased, although it may  be concentrated to that desired tenor.  It will thus be seen that the market  as yet is very limited, and care should  be taken not to build too much on a  present sale foi   a   large  quantity, although there are evidences of an  increase in the near  future.    The  projected institution of iron industries in  this piovince will, if materalized, offer  the most available  market  for local  molybdenite, and it is  satisfactory  to  know that we have at hand a  supply  for the manufacture of molybdenum  steel.���Victoria Colonist.  After the Holiday Husf*.  After the holidays there is sure to  come a short period of depression in  trade. Business almost stops���and  does stop completely in some lines,  especially in smaller places. Of course,  most people have spent all the money  they had, but they'll soon have some  more and they'll fee! all the more like  spending it because they have become  used to spending money on the slightest provocation.  People must still eat, and drink, and  purchase the necessaries of life. People  will still look with lunging eyes upon  the luxuries of life. Peopie still read  advertising, and look in the windows  and long thirstily lor bargains. Therefore merchants should still keep the  advertising mill grinding away at about  the usual speed.

I', R, some time  to come to a realization of thegreat tonnage at its doors in the Boundary  country. Its faith in the future of the  country was -certainly exemplified when  it decided to ipornt some "155,000,000  in the construction of the Boundary  railway. Hut even after it was built,  its ofticials did not appear to appreciate  the amount ot ore that was then ready  to be hauled to the smelters. Kor instance, the officials'wanted tlie Granby  Co. to start shipments in box cars,  when the rails were finally laid into  this camp; but the latter company flat  ly refused to do this, and asked that  ore cars be furnished and that the  necessary safety switches, etc., be put  111. This was done, although it delay  eJ the beginning of shipments somewhat. This was in July, 1900.  Later, one after another of the C. P.  R. officials visited the mines in Phoenix  and at last began to realize the immense  amount ofore that was really waiting  to be hauled, This protppted them to  dp anything in reason to facilitate the  talcing away of the ore, and as a result  if is said that the C. P. R. now takes  out of Phoenix the comfortable sum 0!  upwards of $250 per day in freight  alone, which of course will soon be  doubled.  Improvements Completed Tbls Year.  ". During the past six months the C.  P. R, has spent a large arnount of  mone); in extending the tracks to the  various mines in the boundary, especi  ally in Phoenix camp, .This work has  all been done by the wefl known firm  of contractors,' Tiernay & McPhail of  Nelson, who have just completed operations in the Boundary for the season,  their final work being at Hartford  Junction, where the switchback has  been made into a loop. .'While this  loop is but 1,600 feetlong, it isa most  importaat piece of work, for the reason  that its use. will greatly facilitate traffic  over the Phoenix branch, cutting down  the running time of both freight and  passenger--'trains.'- >  A.W. McPhail, of the firm, who has  active charge of the work, finished  last Friday, "let out his men, and left  for his home at Nelson, B. C. The  C. P. ;R. extra gang, which recently  finished laying the rails on the Knob  Hill spur extention, is now doing the  same thing on the Hartford Junction  loop, and if there is no unforeseen delay, will have the work done in a few  days more.   .  The work, done by Tiernay & McPhail for the C. P. R. in the Boundary  this year is as follows:  1'en car spur for the Snowshoe min&  Ten car spur for the Sunset mine,  Dead wood camp.  ���'  2,000 fooi. extention to the Knob  Mill spur, Phoenix camp.  Track extensions at Eholt, for accommodation of Phoenix traffic.  Loop at Hartford Junction, 1,600  feet, besides several other small pieces  of work.  NOTE AND COMMENT.  Manager 'I'hos. McNaught of Halcyon Hot Springs, intends to carry out  his idea of forming an association of  the newspaper men of British Columbia. The meeting which was called  in October last did not materialize as  the date was at a time when the Duke  and Duchess of Cornwall and York  were in the province. Mr. McNaught's  idea is.to hold a.meeting around New  Year's day, so that if the association is  formed it could arrange for . the proposed trip to California during the  coming year.  While it is a fact that merchants of  Phoenix are today carrying., larger  stocks than ever, and have been doing,  all things considered, a satisfactory  trade, the attention of the Pioneer has  again been called to the old practice  of sending east for goods, especially in  the line of clothing, etc. A merchant  in Phoenix informs the Pioneer that  some of the otherwise best union men  in the camp do this .sort of thing  habitually, and rarely think of spending their dollars here.  �����  0! course, every man has a right to  buy where he pleases, but it is pointed  out that many-of those goods arc.ihnde  in eastern sweat shops, and in any  event the sending of the money to the  east docs not assist in the building up  of the place where one resides. Added to this, it is undoubtedly a fact that  the -majority of workmen came to  Phoenix because wages are satisfactory  here, and there are those that think  sending to such places'for goods is not  the right spirit to display.

NOTICE OF ASSIGNMENT.  Invest In Alleged Mines,  The colored editor of the Toronto  Telegram makes this, sapient observation :  "British Columbia is now buying  Ontario stock for breeding purposes,  and that reminds sundry people that  Ontario invested largely in British  Columbia stock for���well, say educational purposes."  The fact is that a few Ontario  sharpers induced a few Ontario fools  to risk a few Ontario dollars in some  alleged mines in this province.  Naturally enough the few Ontario  dollars passed from the Ontario fools  to the Ontario sharpers, but the Ontario fools have been  since  has done towards helping this province  of British Columbia,, so it is to. be  hoped that in this importation of stock  to which the Telegram refers, there will  be no trace of the tar-brush streak  which marks the Telegram as unique.  ���Province.   ���  ,. sqiieeling  ever  It is little enough that Ontario  �����(�������������������  0*��*0����'��'*'��������*0*"  ������������������������������������������'���'���������'������'���*  ...HOTEL BROOKLYN....

Although nothing definite on the  point is laid down in the amendment  to the school act passed at the last  session,' it appears to be the intention  that the elections for school trustees  in cities of the third class, like Phoenix shall be held at the same time  and place and under the same returning officer as the municipal elections,  as the school act provided should be  done in the past in Victoria and Vancouver. There are three trustees to  be'elected.as before, the two highest  lor two years and the last man for one  year.
