Mine Already Making a Fine Record is a  Shipper���Now Taking Out $45 Ore from  250 Foot Level.  Stanley A. Easton.of the Gold Drop,  returned Sunday via Rossland from  a  trip to Spokane on business connected  with the mine.    It will be remembered  that   a  couple  of months  since the  Gold Drop Mining Co.   ordered   the  first half ol'a 15-drill duplex air  compressor.    While  it was in the process  of manufacture  a   temporary    steam  plant   was  put   in.    Inlormation  has  been received, however, that there are  so many order?, ahead   that  the  compressor  cannot   be delivered for    two  months  yet.    This is too slow for the  Gold Drop management, and a small  compressor, of about lour drill capacity  has been ordered from Rossland   aVid  will be on   hand   Jn   a few days.    It  will be used  till the   larger  plant 'arrives.    No  hoist  is   needed  on    tlie  Cold Drop, as it is a   tunnel  proposition.  B. C. Hag Shipped 500 Tons.        .  Thus far, and although shipping  has only been inauguated for a few  days, the B. C. mine has-shipped 500  tons of ore to the Trail smelter, or  25 cars. At present three or four cars  daily are being sent out and this record  is expected to be continued indefinitely. The B. C. is the first mine in xhe.  Boundary to start regular and continuous shipments.  The crosscutting of the ore body  at sorhe 50 feet on the 250-foot level  in this mine has greatly enhanced the  value of the property. Thus far the  crosscut has gone 45 feet into the ore  IxJdy-without'reaching the other"si_ef  and $45 rock, mostly copper, is being  taken out in the ��� course- of deveop-  ment.  Last Monday the dozen ore .r.hovel-  ers requested that their pay be raised  from $2.56 to $3.00 per day. Manager'Parrish, who is new to the district,  informed the Pioneer man that he inquired and found out that   $3.00  was  BOUNDARY MINES THAT HAVE SHIPPED.  Some of Those Thai Have Already Utilized tbe  New Railway.  Long before the new Boundary railway was completed, there were a number of mines ready to ship ore to the  smelters. Beloie it was finished some  of these properties had hauled.ore in  wagons to the nearest railway point  and sent out a ear or two. Since then  more of them have taken advantage of  the proximity ofthe track, and are  now regular shippers.  One of the last to commence shipments was the B.C. mine, in Summit  camp, but it lias already established a  record, having sent out 25 cars, and  now an average of two cars is being  sent out daily Irom its dump, said to  contain 60,000 tons of ore. The Oro  Denoro, also in Summit camp, has  shipped two cars with satisfactory results, and in a few weeks will be in a  position to ship regularly.

Lew Pitkey, blacksmith at the B.C.  mine, met with a serious accident last  Tuesday, a ragged splinter of steel  striking bis eye while at work. Dr.  Kingston, of Eholt, was summoned  and removed the splinter, which was  nearly half an inch long. It had penetrated the eyelid and was deeply imbedded ire. the eyeball. It is hoped  the sight may be saved.  Pilkey was formerly employed on  the War Fagle, in Phoenix camp,  where he was luid up, for several weeks  from an injury to the same eye.  Another strong corporation has just  been formed to develop   claims  lying/.  in the heart of Phoenix  called tlie Grey Eagle  Gold   Mining'  Co., Ltd., has a capital of $1,500,000,  Dance in the School House.

It  'will add considerably to the payroll of  two cars of high grade silver ore. The  Last Chance, in Skylark camp, sent  out a car of rich silver ore in December.  A month or two ago the Snowshoe,  a mile from Phoenix, hauled a couple  of-cars to Greenwood and shipped  thence to the smelter. The Winnipeg  ha? also shipped several cars and expects to,.ship more. A number oi  others have also made small shipments  by rail, which were the beginning of  steady work along this line in a short  time.  Several ofthe properties in Phoenix  camp are ready   to ship the moment  the track gets here, already having j obtained in the Knob Hill; on the 200-  large reserves on which they can draw. | loot-level, are where the Knob Hill  Among these are the Brooklyn, Stem-1 'edge passes into the Grey Eagle,  winder, Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, | ground."

The total area of the four cbims is  about 125 acres.  The success of the flotation of the  Miner-Graves properties in the camp  will doubtless be repeated with the  Grey-Eagle Co.

It will be installed as  soon as possible and the force of men  increased accordingly.  War Eagle Plaut is Going.  Steam was gotten up in the new-  plant of the War Eagle last week, and  on Tuesday last the hoist was set at  work. The starting of the air compressor was the work of only a few  days more. Three shift.-s are now  employed at the property, and sinking  is steadily going on. This will probably continue at least to the 100-foot  level before cross cutting begins. At  present the shaft is going down on the  ledge and good ore is being taken out.  It is reported that another bond has  been taken on the R. Bell claim, in  Summit camp, by Grand Forks capitalists, and that work will start at once.  A contract has been let to Mr. Noble,  who formerly had a contract on the  B.C., to sink 40 feet on the 21 claim,  near Eholt, recently taken over by the  Boundary Lardeau Mining Co.  On  the Trail Between  I���st- Friday night Lew Foley and  Neil Stewart .were coming from Oro  Denoro to Phoenix on the trail, armed  only with a small revolver and a candle  lantern. About a mile this side of  Oro Denoro they were scented by  several cougars,- who proceeded to  lollow them on all sides, jumping  across the trail and otherwise indulging  in little pleasantries that were not appreciated by the travellers. The revolver was used, but no damage, was  done as far as could be noted, and  after following the couple a mile or  two the unpleasant escort slunk away.  A few days since a man stopping at  the Norden hotel rushed down town to  secure firearms for the purpose of annihilating a huge panther, which he  averred he had just seen somewhere in  the woods back of the Old Ironsides.  After being assured by Constable Dar-  raugh that there was no objection to  the proposed slaughter, he sallied forth  armed cap-a-pie. Up to the present  writing no trophies of the chase are  reported to have been brought in.  The denizens of the forest have probably sought the shelter of the upper  kopjes.  Money Order Office "At Once."  Hewitt Bostock, M. P., has replied  to the telegram sent by a dozen concerns in Phoenix, requesting the establishment of a money order office here  at once, saying: "I hope to be able to  get this matter arranged for you at  once."  This was from Victoria, but as Mr.  Bostock is now at Ottawa, he should  be able to secure action in tlie matter  without delav.

Crosscutting of the ore body on the  Victoria, which was struck about a  month ago through the 300-foot level  of the Old Ironsides, still continues.  At present the drills have gone through  65 feet of solid ore, without reaching  the other side of the ledge, and the  character of the ore is most satisfactory.  From the portal of the crosscut the  ! distance is now 267 feet to the face.  Officials of the Granby company, owning the property, are not a little pleased  at this new ore find.

The Brooklyn wa-; shut down Sunday to clean tlie boilers, starting again  Sunday evening.  Tenders are being asked, to be in by  February 5th, for hauling 1000 cords  of wood from the 4th of July to tlie  Old Ironsides.  The tunnel on the Rawhide is now  in 75 feet on the present contract, or a  total of 475 feet, and the rock is getting well mineralized.  A. C. Edwards,'of Spokane, who is  interested in the Last Chance mine, a  couple of miles from Phoenix, visited  the property this week.  James Marshall on Tuesday, while  sharpening steel at his claim, the Providence, was struck in" the eye by a  small piece. It is thought no serious  damage was done.  Last week the blacksmith shop at  the Mountain View was blown up by  an explosion of dynamite; no one hurt.  The property is improving and work  is steadily going on in the shaft, now  down about 45 feet. The tunnel is in  86 feet.  On the Little Burn fraction,, in the  north end of tlie camp,, nearly the  whole shaft is solid ore, carrying good  gold values and a fair per cent, of copper. The property is owned by Tom  Roderick and Jimmy Marshall, who  have been working on it.  J. T.  lanndrv  Mullen  Soap Suds Flying.  Johnson has given up the  business,     and     C.

There is considerable inquiry for  real, estate of late.  Most, satisfactory meals in the city  served at the Imperial Cafe.  J. F. Heruenway and James Stephens visited Grand Forks this week.  ���   rT"he"~newl v. - re-opened���Butte ����� dmlng  rooms are growing'more popular each  ��� week.  Mr. and Mrs. W.C. Covert of Grand  ���Forks, are visiting the Limily of \V. S.  Porter.  Dick Williams, of the Jenckes Machine Co., Sheibrooke. P. (.)., was in  town Thursday.  The Phoenix Feed & Produce Co,  received a carload of Calgary flour and  oats this week at Hartlord Junction.  H. McKinney, formerly of Greenwood, has been added to the staff .of  the Hunter-Kendrick Co., in Phoenix.  O. S. Walker & Co., on Dominion  avenue, have at last got in tlie long  delayed windows for the front <_ their  premises.    ,  Peter Benson, of Niagara, bought  a lot on Old Ironsides avenue this  week, and will put up a building at an  early date.  J. F. Walker, ofthe Phoenix News  Co., went to Greenwood this week to  meet Mrs. Walker. They will go. to  housekeeping at once.  That satisfied expression is from a  man who eats regularly at the Imperial Cafe. Have you tried it yet?  Everything the best that can be had.  Wm. Yolen Williams, superintendent of the Graves-Miner properties, returned to camp this week, having visited Spokane, Rossland and White's  camp.  The electric light for the Old Ironsides has been installed and is now in  full working order. It is of 100 lights,  capacity and is used in the mine, shaft  house and office.  Owing  to  the   non-arrival   of the  large burglar-proof safe, now   en route  from Toronto, the Phoenix  branch of  the Eastern Townships Bank  did   not  Iopen this week.     It will doubtless be  1 ready for business next week.  C. S. Truesdale arrived in town  I Tuesday and assumed charge of the  Boundary Creek telephone exchange  and the Spokane Northern telegraph  office. The telephone line has been  working much better the last lew davs.  j To vaccinate or not to vaccinate is  la leading question in Phoenix ami  other parts of the Boundary.

The   incorporation   committee   has  ! been at work this week, hut it will take  some little time for  them to complete  their   labors, as   the   property   owners  are widely scattered.

The Fenians who talked of invading Canada recently, have wisely  changed their mind. They know better, in reality. But should they be so  crazy as to come, they would probabiy  be run into jail by the police in the  firsl town they reached.  SHALL PHOENIX INCORPORATE.  To incorporate or not to incorporate,  is now jJv-J .question in Phoonix, with  the strong'probability of its being decided in the'affirmative at a compar-  itively early day. At the public meeting,  held in the middle of last week at  Miners' Union hall, there was a large  representatation of those interested in  the different parts of the place. After  discussing the wisdom cf preparing  lor incorporating, a special committee  was appointed to take the matter up.  This committee has been actively at  work, and feels encouraged at the success thus far met with.  As explained at the meeting, it will  be needail to secure the passage of a  special act by the provincial assembly,  now in scssion/mit when the matter is  presented to the legislators it is- not  thought theie will be any serious difficulty to overcome.  The portions of the town to be included in the proposed corporate limits are the Cimeron mineral claim,  known as the Rumberger addition, the  larger part of the Old Ironsides addition, and it is hoped the owner of the  New York claim, also platted, and which  is registered as Phoenix, will see his way  to be included. Connection will, oi  course, have to be made between the  two portions of the town by a short  roadway thiough the unplatted portion.  Actual owners of property in the  fwo most thickly settled portions ol  (the community have been almost unam-  imous in expressing their approval1 of  fhe proposal to incorporate, and it is  Relieved that the lew who are not yet  in line, will give their consent in due  course.  The .benefits to accrue to a growing  Jown like Phoenix, from being able to  manage its own affairs, are considerable, and scarcely need reiterating here,  so'patent are they. The one item of  having the revenue collected, which  now goes to Victoria (most ot it never  fo wander back) spent right here, is  sufficient in itself to  warrant the step.  Another thing that is of pressing  importance is that we can take sanitary  precautions that are absolutely needlul.  Too much stress cannot be laid on  this point.  About the only reason advanced by  the iew opposed to incorporation is  that it is too early yet. Well, it takes  some little lime to put such measures  into effect, and why should we not be  prepaied lor it when we are ready.  All agree that it must come in due  time, and some think the time is not  lar off.  It is said, on authority, that there  are more Simon pure wild cats to the  square mile, in a mining way, in South  Africa than in any other section on  the globe. This should have an excellent effect on British Columbia,  when the reaction really sets in.  The British in Ladysmith have  started a newspaper, tne prospectus oi  which announced: "What you want  in a besieged town is news that you  can absolutely rely on as false." Some  of the war correspondents must' have  taken their cue from this unique journal. "  When the whole British world is  waiting breathless for war news the  C.P.R. press service allowed the cap-  ture.of Spion Kop to get into the  American papers 24 hours ahead of  British Columbia journals. Little  wqnder that a healthy howl arose from  the Kootenays to the^ coast.  Some persons may be small enough  to misjudge the motives of Lord  Strathcona, in equipping and paying  the entire expense 01'a Canadian bat-  tallian of 400 cavalry. But sensible  people will readily see the teal patriot  in this act oi the distinguished Canadian, even if he is wealthy. It will  cost, it is said, a round million dollars.  Remarkable as it mav seem, from  the reports, the provincial assembly is  actually doing something besides  quarreling over the majority question.  For the present, at least, the "ins" are  on top, but the ''outs" talk of having a  card up their collective sleeve that  will turn the tables. As yet it has  failed to appear.

A great building era will begin in  Phoenix this spring, if the expressed  intentions of individuals and corporations are any criterion.  Interest is now about equally divided between the war in the Transvaal,  the war at Victoiia and the smallpox  epidemic south of us, with the las;  named a tiifle in the lead.  Again the press reports show anything but a uivorable situation for the  British arms in South Africa. Nevertheless all over the empire recruiting  continues with a more grim determination than ever to win in the end.  The Spokesman-keview persists in  classing the Boundary as a part of the  Kootenays. Such, of course, is not  the case, and the editor of Spokane's  great daily should rub up on geogiaphy.

By order of the Board.  H. Camphku. Oswald, Secretary.  Montreal, 17th November, 1899.      17  THE WILLIAM HUNTER CO., LTD.  Now Opening Up in the New Building on  Dominion Avenue.  One of the pioneers in merchandising in Kootenay was William Hunter, a  gentleman who stands high all through  British Columbia. Settling in the  Slocan in the early 'go's, when that  district was in its infancy, he success-  lully-r. conducts mercantile establishments at Silverton, Three Forks and  Alamo.  Last fall Mr. Hunter purchased a  lot on Dominion avenue and let a contract for a building. The structure,  two stories high, is now complete, and  the large stock has begun to arrive.  It will consist of Clothing, Boots'and  Shoes, Dry Goods, Carpets, House  Jpurnishings, etc., and Millinery. Mr.  Hunter will occupy both floors of his  capacious building and will shortly  have it filled with the choicest goods  in his line. Mr. Alfred Reeve, an experienced nun in this line is in charge  of the establishment.  Mr. Hunter has been looking for a  new location for a year or more, and  finally picked out Phoenix as the most  promising town in the district. He  will doubtless do well here, as he has  done in the Slocan, as he has a host ol  friends everywhere.  " "T*~Ffc*t Delinquent Subscribers.  During these war times, people who  ���stay in the Slocan arc reasonably safe.  Wc have no desire to join the Cana-  _ian contingent and crush out the  .Boer republic. We would rather stay  at home and fight delinquent subscribers. Although the woods are full ol  them we can gradually do them up  without spattering our clothes with  blood, or having our haircut with a  dum dum, or dam dum bullet, as  might be the the case if we were on  the firing line in blood:soaked Africa.  ���New Denver Ledge.

The young woman had slipped on  }hc stepping stones in front of her  lather's house and injured her knee.  It grew so bad that she thought it necessary to call in a physician. She had  formed a dislike to the family doctor,  so her father suggested several others,  and finally it was decided to call the  spruce young man with a homeopathic  <;asc who passed tlie house every day.  They kept a sharp lookout, and when  lie came along, called him in. The  yonng lady modestly raised her skirts  and showed the disabled member.  The little man looked at it and said:  "That certainly is quite serious."  "Well" she said "what shall I do ?"  "If I were you," he whispered, "I  would send for a physician ; I am a  piano tuner."  The Jewel, in Long Lake camp,  will soon have its four-drill com pre ssor  plant.-in. position'to render service.  Six men arc employed on the Volcanic, on the North Fork of Kettle  river. The big tunnel to tap the ore  body 1,500 feet from the surface, is  driving ahead.  The second clean-up from the Waterloo mine at Camp McKinney has just  been made and resulted in the production of a neat little $2,000 gold  brick, the production of 20 days run  with the stamp mill.  Good reports are being brought in  from the While Flag claim, in Wellington camp, owned by J. W. Stout and  Claude Bellus, and the showing is said  to be something fine.  MINERAL ACT 1896.

"The Ahsent Minded Beggar" concert at Greenwood was well patronized  last Thursday night, and realized over  $500 for the Mansion House Fund.  Alan Simpson, of Phoenix, better  known as "Simmy," assisted in the  program.  W. J.S.indry of Phoenix and Jim  Woods of Greenwood, had another  wrestling match at the Alhambra  theatre last night, as the Pioneer was  going to press.

Harry Nash has installed a pool  table in the Phoenix hotel, which is  much appreciated by many patrons.

Between old Sol and a lack of more  of the beautiful, sleighing is decidedly  poor except within a couple of miles  01 town.  D. A.

A line is also  being built to White's camp.  In nearly every town in British Columbia except Phoenix the Chinese  Mew Year was duly celebrated Tuesday.  That Phoenix has no natives of the  Flowery Kingdom as residents, is one  01 the many advantages of living here.
