Cost of Smelting. ,  It is now given out, on what is con-  -sidered good authority, that M'r. Miner  recently stated in Montreal that the  cost of smelting at Grand Forks was  $1,90 per ton; of ore, and that ic was  hoped by increased economy to further  reduce it to $1.80: This,: of course,  refers only to the cost of tlie one operation of turning the ore into matte.  But even so it is acknowledged by  smelter men to be a great achievement.  The actual cost of smelting at Trail  and Northport has always been a.carefully guarded secret, but the last costs ^  published of the Hall Mines smelter at T THDnnrH THP n/PPfc' "*k  Nelson, gave the cost 'per ton at S3.9S, �� ' nKOUUn I ftC VYCCN.

It may seem that the capital of the  new corpoiation is excessive, but when  the vast bodies of ore already blocked  out and in sight are remembered, the  subject takes a different aspect.  In his annual report,  given  to  the,  stockholders a year ago, readers of the j  Pioneer  will   recall   that  Superinten-i  dent Williams stated that in the. Knob  Hill alone,  above the tunnel    level 1  there were then 1,416,000 tons of  ore  blocked out.    He estimated the average at $8.37 per ton, giving a value of  $11,851,920.-  This did not take into account the  immense ore zones below the level of  the tunnel, which are now being exploited. Nor did the estimate referred  to include ore already blocked out in  the Old Ironsides and Victoria, which  is known to be fully as much more.  When the report was made and pub- j  lished, incredulous ones were  easy   to j  find, and old mining men looked wise j  and shook their heads.    Even   if  the  ore was there, it could hardly be mined  at a profit, with average values of $8.37  icr ton.    Hut the Miner-(>raves people  Mr. Williams they had a man who knew his  profession, and they kept right on,  living un to their reputation as the best  aggregation of capitalists, all things  considered, that ever operated in  Southern British Columbia.  In the year just gone Mr. Williams'  judgment has been proven to have  been sound and his estimates conservative. s\* a result, the syndicate's  own smelter is now running through  ore at an estimated profit of $600,00a  -,-j- tons ol  matte, the copper in-which alone is  claimed to be worth over, $300,000.

The franchise, so far as lhe city of (��i ecu wood,  is concerned, was secured by the stock-  holders of the   Greenwood   lilec-f-ie-  Light Co.,',*fTid still have a certified  check on deposit for $5,000, that they  will build the line.   Hut for this little  ���check the   matter   might  have been  dropped during the dull times which  prevailed last summer, when it was  not easy to interest capitalists in any  ���enterprise.  Hut now things arc different. Two  smelters are almost ieady to treat ores  on Boundary.Creek���ores that will not  bear heavy Height charges. Low grade  ores in and around'l'hocnix are available, and the smelters want them.  Thus a goodly tonnage for a tiamway  is all but ready. '  .A.J. McMillan, managing director  of the Snowshoe syndicate, is now . in  London, and it is asserted that part of  bis mission is. to interest capital for  ' this tramway project.'^  It is more than  probable that~'\Xr.'  McMillan's, efforts  ,   will lie, attended^ with <.some degree  ''<jf success,'ana/that^a move towards  ���* construction*'will be made next 'spi ing.  ���    .'

In any event, it will be noted that  Phoenix is the" objective point, in all  this planning, which'in itself is';a most  ���significant fact,"/- ' '     -. ' ' *  This endeavor has largely been made  thought the Vancouver Hoard of Trade,  and it is given out that the proposition  is fa\orcd to some extent. Just what  benefit this would be to inland cities is  not made very clear, for the interests  of coast and Kootenay and Yale towns  are far from being identical, Hesides  this we have our own inland a��.s<><iated organisation that is quite able to  look alter matters of moment to business men of inland places.  The Nelson   Economist   puts the  case biiefly thus:  The Vancouver Board of Trade is  anxious    that    similar    associations  thioughout tbe province should unite  in foiming a provincial  board.    Cir-  culais have been sent out to sound the  feeling on this point and it is reported  that the proposition is favoiably received,    Heie in the Kootenays we have  our Associated Boards of Trade, and  if the identity of   that organization  would be lost by affiliation   with our  friends at the coast, the Economist  would say, don't affiliate.    The interests of the merchants and traders of  Vancouver are by no means identical  with those of the Kootenays���in many  instances they arc opposed.    If Kootenay can help the coast in any matter  of provincial interest, such assistance  may always be'relied upon; but when  it comes to a matter of local  concern,  we will be found solid for Kootenay���  first, last and all the time.   The board  oftiade at Victoria has monopolized the  nomenclature of the province by calling themselves, the British Columbia  Boaid   of  Trade.     But   there   are  others.  about 225,000 tons; up to. last Satur-  ady it was'<s 16,411 tons���so it will just  about equal the first figure by Decern  ber 31 st. Phoenix camp is today shipping at a greatei rate, and inside of a  couple of months will be sending out  ore at the rate of nearly 500,000 tons  per j ear.  WHAT TIIE EDITORS SK\.  ."on.

Put that year has been one  ���<��f remarkable development, and the  promise forths'future is particularly  bright;' Phoenix has had its ups and  downs, ami doubtless will experience  them both in the future. All western  towns do.- They grow quickly for a  time!���|>erhaps too fast for their own  ��ood���and then cpmes a breathing  spell. If the resources are behind the  place, it is only a. question of time till  it assumes the position in the com-  incrcial world to which it is entitled.  ���It is now generally acknowledged by  all that Phoenix has reached that point  in its history where it is among the  greatest mining camps of the North  American continent. It took mining  men in general and the greatest railway in the world some time to appreciate it,���but both have at last arrived  At a realization of this fact.  The future for Phoenix is indeed  bright, and at this stage it requires no  prophet ta foretell that in another  twelve mopth this place wjll stand  bead and .shoulders above all other  mining camps in British Columbia.  The Pioneer invites its large list of  readers to make a note "of this.    .  Just now there is a rush for applications for charters for lines of railway  from the coast to . Kootenay.
