Evidently the Kettle Valley or "Hot  Air" line, as it is called, running from  Grand Forks to Republic, has more  motive power than needed, as the C.  P. R., which is often short on power  on the Boundary branch, has leased  one of the Hot Air locomotives, No. 3,  for use on this part of ihe line, and the  machine is now in active use by the C.  P. R. Another one from the same  company may be utilized later. No. 3  is used on general "freight work, but  may be put on the run horn the Snow-  shoe and 13.

IS GOING  ONCE MORE  Boundary Mining Notes.  Again it is Thought to be Per  manent.  TROUBLES OYER AT GRANBY SMELTtR  New Power Failed Again Late Last Week, But  Wan Put lir-Use Again in a Few Days���  Mines Worked FulljForce Christmas Day.  If any "outfit in the country has had  a streak of bad luck, its name is the  Cascade Water, Power and Light Co.,  Ltd. It was thought that an expenditure of four yeais in time and a half a  million in hard cash was ample to get  eveiything in pennatient working cider, even to the smallest particular.  But man proposes and God disposes,  and theie are often adjustments and  changes necessary at the inception ol  an entei prise of this magnitude.  When thePioneei was being piinted  late last week Frida>, another accident  was happening to the Cascade powei  line at the Granby smelter, by which  a motor or two and a transformet  were burned out. This threw the  smelter on its own resources again for  motive power, which at the present  stage of water in the North Fork of the  Kettle river, is but equal to the capacity of two furnaces.  Happily the trouble was not very  serious and was quickly remedied. A  spare transformei was sent down fiom  the Phoenix sub-station, and by Wednesday of this week everything was in  complete running order again at the  smelter, and for the 'bird time in the  last three weeks, the C. P. R. officials  were notified to piepaie to handle 50  rars, or 1,500 tons, of. ore daily from  this camp.  The new transformers for the smeller, to bring the long distance high  tension Cascade current of 20,000  volts down to 440 volts, the rate in  use at the smelting works, have been  ordered for some time in the east, ami  should arrive from the makers'before  long. ..When they are installed the  present makeshift transformers will be  done away with, and the liability of accidents like that of last week, will be  reduced to the minimum.-  The Mother Lode smelter, Greenwood, blew out one furnace this week.  The Snowshoe mine was closed  Christmas, to give the employees a  chance lo enjoy the holidays.  J. H .Giiffin and P. Steffen have been  awarded a contract to sink 100 feet on  the Goldfinch, near Greenwood.  A.F.Flnmerfell has been advanced  Irom the position of assistant geneial  manager of the Gianby Co., to assistant to the piesident, and H.N.Galer,  assistant to the managers, has been appointed assistant general manager.  Late next week Smith Curtis, secretary of the King Mining Co., expects to  stait for New York City, wheie he an-  licipates making aiiangements by  which development on the O10 Denoro,  in Summit camp, will shortly be resumed. Mr. Curtis and Mr. McNish recently seemed a bond on the minoiity  interest in the Oro Denoro.  Supt. A. B. W. Hodges, of the Granby smelter, waslo letuin this week" from  a trip to various eastern cities. While  away he placed an order with the  Allis-Chalmers Co, of Chicago, for  two additional furnaces for the Granby Co., which are to be installed in  the early summer. When installed  this will give the Granby Co. abatteiy  of six blast furnaces.  J. J.

While away  he completed the details of a sale of  timber to the Christina Lake Mill Co.,  who have a saw mill erected at the  foot of the lake on what was known as  the townsite of Minton four years ago.  The product will be shipped by rail, a  wagon road having been built to the  C. P. R.. ���  Mr. Sandner says that the.little hamlet ol Fife, above Cascade, is beginning  to take on life, due to the working ol  the lime quarries liy the Trail smeltei  owners. A boarding house has been  erected, and 35 men are now employed, which force'will be increased to 60  after the first of the year. It is expected to ship twelve cars of lime daily to  the Trail smelter, where it will be used  as a flux. In..the spriin; it is said n  power plant will be installed for quarrying the lime rock.

Had an Experience.  Chief Eleciiician Lane, of ihe Granby smelter started to drive to Phoenix  last Sunday, and had quite an experience. He strayed off on the City of  Paris road, and came out at Anaconda  and Greenwood. In coming up the  long hill from Greenwood, he met a  runaway team on a narrow part of the  first switchback. Pulling into ihe  bank, Lane and his companion jump-,  ed just as the team reached them,  Their sleigh was overturned, but no  damage was done, fortunately.  Sarah Venetta Hackctt and William  James McMillan were united in marriage Christmas eve at the home of the  bride on Brooklyn avenue, the cere-  money being prefoimed by Rev. V. M.  Purdy, pastor of the Presbyterian  church. The groom is employed at  ' ihe Granby mines.  Phoenix Skating Rink Well Filled on Christmas Night.  Although the weather suddenly turned soft a day or two before Chiistmas,  and threatened to spoil the ice at the  link, Manager Rodgers carried out his  piogi.imtne for a band concert and  laces and sports at the Phoenix rink  Chiistmas night. The rink was well  filled when the sporls began, the music  being furnished by the Biner band of  six pieces.

For. a short tune  only he will continue to do the best  photographing yet turned out in Phoenix.     Better have that silting now.  During his short slay in opokane  last Sunday James J. Hill, president  of the Great Noithern railway, announced that construction would be  immediately.begun, by his company,  of the new line through the Okanagan  country to Midway, and from the latter  point up the Similkameen river the entire length of the valleyv  "During the coming summer;" said  Mr. Hill, "all our energies in this part  of the country will be centered in 'the  building of this road. We are, even  now, perfecting the general details for  the new road, and as soon as suring  comes the work will be most vigorously pushed on. When the road is completed we shall devote all our energies  to opening up the great resources of  that wonderful country and we shall  fill it with settlers."  Asked about that Coast-Kootenay  line, Mr. Hill said:  "I do not wish to talk of thepioject  to extend the road on liom the Similkameen to Vancouver, but, of course,  the distance between the two points is  not very great. For the present accept my assurance that the road through -  the Okanagan and the Similkameen  countiies is to be built al once. I think  ihat is the most important piece of news  I have to give out just now."  Coking Coal on North Fork.  A repoit fiom Grand Folks states  that an eastern syndicate, whichcprn-  'prises a number of Toronto capitalists,  has acquired a larae' inteiest in the  British Columbia Coal Company,-Um- .  iled, the owners of the North Fork  coal fields. - In accordance-with tbe  terms of an agreement a minimum sum ���  of $10,000 has been subscribed for the  treasury and a limited amount of treasury stock will be placed on the market  and proceeds utilized for development  work. '  A diamond drill plant will be installed-in the spring. If transpoitation facilities existed the company could begin the immediate shipment of a high  grade coking coal from the four foot  seam exposed on the river bank where  it was cut by the stream.   ���  Some 57 Claims In Arizona.  A letter trom J. F. Hemenway, formerly of this camp, but now in Arizona, states that he is located at Pres-  cott, as financial agent ot th-.: Copper  Cobre Mining Co. I'he company  owns 57 claims, eight miles long by  half a mile wide, in the same, mineral  belt with the celebrated United Verde,  owned and opeiated by Senator Clark  of Montana. The ore is similar to  that of the Old Ironsides, but of higher values and in large leads. The main  unnel will be 2,500 feet long and give  1 .depth of 1,50c feet. It is being  opeiated by a New York syndicate,  and locally it is thought the Copper  Cobre-group will astoniih the world.  Mr. Hemenway is much pleased with  his new surroundings.

With the coming of another year it  is a time honored custom to make new  "resolutions/ Unfortunately, it is also  a(fact that many of these are  more  honored in the breach than in the observance.'   Nevertheless, this should  not deter any one who can keen a good  resolution from making it.

STRICTLY   BUSINESS  The long advertisement, to be good  must be as brief as it is possible to  make it.  The man who advertises is the kind  of a man whom everybody wants to do  business with.  To maintain and increase business  you must do something for business.  To advertise is often just what your  business needs.  Each adveitisement is sininly one  tap of the publicity hammer���on the  strength of each blow depends the  number required to drive the nail to  the head.  Every advertisement is a teacher.  If it be not educational it is not effective. The key to successful advertis  ing is the exciting of a desire on the  part of the reader for the goods advertised.  ter.

J. McMillan, who is managing director of the Snowshoe  Gold &  Copper Mines, Ltd.,  has  recently ie-  tuined to London  after spending the  summer in British Columbia  looking  after the  interests of ihe  companies  wiih which he is connected, says the li.  C. Review, of'London.      He  is well  known to'oui readers on account of the  prominent part be has taken for   some  years'past-in. the  developnisnt of the  mineral resources of Southern  E. C.  It will also be remembered that in ihe  spring he was 'appointed a   director of  ihe Le Roi Mining Co.   -Our  repre-  seniative found Mr. McMillan  in the  best of health, and inclined, to take a  favoiable view of mining affairs  in  0,  C. generally.        -  He "was "reminded , that there had  been a good deal of discussion in our  own columns and throughout the entire  provincial press in regard to certain  taxations and mining regulations which  it is claimed, press with undue severity  on the mining industry, and the opinion  of Mr. McMillan was sought on,this  topic ���������'���-.:.'..'.���_������  "It is quite true," lie replied,   "that  the 2 per cent mineral tax has created  a.great deal  of-discussion   in British  Columbia.    Mining men do not object  to pay their fair share of taxation, but  the incidence of.this particular.taxation  is objectionable.' The tax is levied un-  oii the gross output of the mines, after  deductions   have   been   allowed    for  freight and   treatment.     Most of, the  mining men  feel   that,in   the earlier  stages of the mining industry, taxation  of this-kind should   not be  imposed,  but if it is felt necessary  by- the government to levy a tax somewhat upon  these lines, the tax should certainly be  levied  upon.-profitsy-upon   dividends  declared���and not upon the gross output of. the mines. " The tax   as  levied  today bears much.more... heavily  upon  the low grade mines than  upon  those  mining high grade ore.    When in Vic-  tot in about a month since, I bad interviews with members of the government,  who gave me lo understand''- that   they  favored meeting the views of the mine-  owners, who are anxious to   have this  tax removed or  readjusted.      It. must  not be supposed   that  because   mine-  owner0 objec'   to   this   particular tax,  that they are anxious to evade all taxation, for as a matter of fact those who  are resident in the mining districts pay  a large portion-^-nearly  one-third���of  the total taxation  of the  province of  lkitish Columbia.   Some of this money  comes back into the mining  districts,  and'is spent in opening  up roads, in  building biidges, and in other ways.  "The conditions there, as you know,  are somewhat different to those at Rossland, and the onilook is altogether e,i-  couraging. About 500,000 tons of  ore will.be treated this year in. the  Uoundaiy, which shows a very considerable increase oyer last year's, tonnage,  ihese figures being greater, in fact, than  the combined tonnage of the two pie-  ceding years. There are at present  three smellers which are adding to I  their furnaces, and the Snowshoe is regularly shipping 150 to soo tons a day,  either to ihe Greenwood or the Houn-  dary Falls smeller, and making a fair  profit."  What would be a fair estimate, of the  smelting costs in the Boundary ?  "Generally speaking something under $2 a ton."  Has the Snowshoe company decided to erect its own smeller ?  "The matter is under consideration,  but nothing definite is yet settled."  Mr. McMillan concluded the interview by legretting the present unsatis-  faciory condition of the B. C. market  in London, but he expressed the hope  that it would not be long befoie confidence will be once more restored.  May Use Cascade Power.  The Nelson, B. C. News hints that  Paul Johnson, superintendent of the  Geenwood smelter, has been asking  for a rate for Cascade power, in the  event of his plant being enlarged.  Steam is now the motive power. Mr.  Johnson said that he hoped that the  Great Northern railway company would  push on with their road building  through the Boundary country. When  the railway reached Qieenwood they  would be able to obtain coke lor $5  per ton, whereas at  the present   time  they pay something over $6, and as  about one .hundred ions a day are consumed in the Mother Lode smelter,  with only two furnaces in operation,  the cost of coke was a serious matter.  T.he C. P. R. gave the Boundary mines  a pretty fair rate on theii ore shipments  at the present time, but Mr. Johnson  thought the advent of a competing  railway would mean a lower freight  rate on coke.  EASTERN  I  THE OBSERVATORY  1 1HINOS   1ALKFD OP  AT J  I HOVK AND I'.LSrWHEHE 1  A couple of years ago the manager  of the Pioneer, anticipating the good  times that would soon reach Phoenix  ordered a receptacle for safely taking  care of the "dough" that was expected  to flow into the coffers of this widely  read family journal.

Here is the secret of their  success:  A child is born in the neighboihood;  the attending physician gets $20, the  editor gives the loud lunged youngster  ;ind the happy parents a send off, and  I gets $0.    It is christened and the minister gets $5 and the editor  gets  $co.  It grows u,p  and   marries; the editoi  publishes anotlnr long winded flowery  article and tells a dozen lies about "the  beautiful   and   accomplished   bride.'  The minister gets $10 and a   piece ol  cake, and the editor  gets  $000.     In  the course of time it dies and the doctor gets from $5 to $100, the minister  pei haps gets another five,   the  undertaker gets from $50 to $100, the  editor publishes notice of death   and an  obituary two columns long, lodge and  society resolutions, a lot of poetry and  a1 free card of thanks and (jen   $0000.
