IS B. C MINE SOLD  Duiing the last few days the Miner-  Giaves syndicate has put'in operation  a connivance or machine that means  much to the syndicate for the economical operation of its machinery plant,  located in shaft house No. 1. This is  nothing moie 01 less than a connivance lor put if) ing and heating the  water that is daily pumped fiom the  pi ope.! lies, and which has hcrctofoie  mil to waste���or to Gieenwood.  In the opeiation ot many mines,  located at hiyh altitudes, the matter  of seeming a nevei faiilngand adequate  supply of water for the large boilers,  sometimes becomes .seiious. Oi  couise water is a sine qua 110:1, unless  electrical energy is used, and often is  not easy to secure. 'I his problem has  been cunfionting the mine owners ol  Phocniv, as there is not as )ct -a city  water system, and so an eastern man's  invention'lo use the water from the  mine itself is taken advantage of.

Orders arc on hand now for about is*  additional 'phones, and as the new  switchboard has been installed, "the  new subscribers will,in a short time be  connected with the ^central office.  More new 'phones are being placed in  Phoenix business houses than in the  rest of the Houiidary altogether.  To Build the Phoenix Tramway.  According to this week's Greenwood  Times, L. M.

C. mine at Summit City has been  acquired !>} a sjndicate of American  capitalists, headed by E. 1). Nelson,  president of the Fust National Bank  of Ironwood, Mich.  The purchase price was considerably  in excess of one million dollais. but  the exact figures will be withheld.  The late owners were James Ross, the  letired railway contractor; Clarence  J. McCuaig, C. E. L. Poiteous, and  other wealthy Montrealers. A new-  company has been formed. The new-  resident director is Alex Miller, formerly local manager of the Merchants  Bank of Halifax (RoyaL Bank;, and  general manager of the Grand Forks  Trust and Investment Company.  /The new owners will prosecute development work more vigorously. The  widening of the shaft, a work that  should not occupy more than four  months, would enable the mine to ship  1000 tons per day, as vast ore bodies  have been blocked out.  Thus far themine has shipped over  20,000 tons to the Trail "smelter and  the values in copper aiid gold average  $i8 per ton, the termer metal predominating. The mine is equipped  with a complete plant, including a  ten-drill compressor.  'i'he profits in October and November ..'were $48,000 and $30,000 re  peclively.  The new heatei, made by the Still-  well-Bieicc Mi'g. Co.,< of Dayton,  Ohio, has a rapacity, of handling  water for use in boilers to the 'extent  of 500 hoise power.

Not only is the mine water thus  used to a large extent in running the  boilcis, but the water itself is heated  duiing 'be process of purifiiation, taking much less lime to make steam, and  theieby cutting down the quantity 0!  fuel used.
