An estimate of the situation shows  that upwaros of 1,300 men. are employed in the 'mines and smelters of  the Boundary, including those directly  employed in the ore earring from the  mines to the'smelters. The amount  of money distributed in the Doundary  each month for the wages of these men  is estimated to be upwards of. $140,-.  000, or$i,6oo,ocoannually. Inasmuch  as a number, of properties are not now  wording that are expected to be. toper  ated this spring, it is safe to ; say, that  in a short time wages will" be distributed in'this immediate section at the  rate of $2,000,000 annually.

Patrick Burns, senior member of the  well known firm of P. Burns & Co.,  who, have 35 or 40 retail meat markets  in British Columbia, Yukon and the  Northwest, in addition to the wholesale markets, has been making a tour  of-,, the Boundary, accompanied by  Blake Wilson, the'���firm's manager at  Nelson,, and Manager Erlich, of  Greenwood, visiting.the, different markets of his firm. He expressed himself as well pleased with the outlook  for the ..Kootenay-Boundary. country  generally, and stated that he could see  a gradual improvement in the Slocan,  Rossland and Boundary, which he-expected to keep up from now on.  Mr. Burns is understood to be a  shareholder in the^Dominion Copper  Co., Ltd,, which concern o\vn�� the  yaluable:Brooklyn grpup of mines in  this, camp, which :have not been operated for the last,two.1,years or; more.  Referring to the late rumors that there  was a probability of -work being resumed on the Brooklyn group, Mr.:  {Bum's stated that he expected : to see  ;these mines being worked again at no  distant date. ' Mr. Burns was in Greenwood Wednesday, and went to Grand  Porks from Phoenix, after which he returned to Nelson. - '  RUSHING  THE SURVEY  �������������*�������������<  Mr. DesBrisay Now Said to  Be in a Hurry.

Last Monday little nine-year old  Dan Haggerty was started off by himself for Toronto, for the purpose of securing expert surgical treatment, to  cure him of hip disease, if possible.  His father John Haggerty, has been  employed at' the Granby mines, and  the little chap, who also was a Pioneer  newsboy, and one of the brightest, has  been afflicted with the deformity for  years. A subscription paper was circulated among the miners and business men, and a fund of between $300  and $400 was raised to send the boy  to Toronto, where he Will be treated  at the Orthopedic Hospital. The boy  travelled alone, and will doubtles.  reach his destination in safety, and it  is hoped the course of treatment will  result in a complete cure.  Mr. Haggerty and his wife feel very  grateful to those who have assisted the  boy in this manner, and have requested the Pioneer to publish the following:  CARD  OF  THANKS.  To theMiners and Citizens of Phoenix:  We wish to express, through the columns of the Phoenix Pioneer, our  heartfelt thanks to the miners and citizens of Phoenix, and especially to W.  Y. Williams, superintendent of the  Granby Mines, for the generous financial assitance given us in sending our  nine-year old son, Dan Hfiggerty, to  Toronto, for, treatment for hip disease,  ' John Hauuicrtv.

Tuesday evening what was announced  to be the last masquerade carnival, of  the seasonWas given at the Phoenix  skating rink by Messers. Prendergast&  Munro. A merry crowd of maskers  was present, besides a large number of  spectators. It was said to be the  best event of the kind ever given at  the rink, arid the prizes; were among  the best offered so far. Those who  won the prizes, the judges being Joe  Black,, E.P._Shea and A\'iHi��m,Murray,  were as follows:  Best . Lady's  Costume,   Mrs.    Frank  McDougall, Seal Muff, worth $10.00.

DesBrisay has riot been  making regular trips into the Boundary  all winter for simple pleasure. ��� Each  time he has been closing some little  matter regarding the right of way for  the Great Northern branch from Grand  Forks to Phoenix; that has been hanging fire.  Last week he was in the Boundary  again, and took oceosion to interview  Forbes Kirby, P. L.S., andurgehim to  hurry the work of surveying some  ranches on Fourth of July creek,  which he had been working on for  some little time for^ the railway company. It seems that there, are about  five of these ranches in the upper  part of the creek, extending from the  stage road crossing to near Summit  City, and the railway wishes a right of  way through them. Not being surveyed  and crown granted, title .could not be  obtained. In order to facilitate matters,  the railway people will have the surveying done on the ranches of Jimmy'  Myers and others, and so be able to  get title to the strip of right of way  that is needed.      -  While by far the greater part of the  right of way of this, branch has been  obtained already by Mr. DesBrisay,  he is rapidly closing up the securing  of titles; to these odd pieces, -here vand  there, so that everything shall be in  readiness in the early spring for the  contractors to begin the actual work of  of construction.  :   Boundary Mining Notes.  Joe Taylor is developing the King  claim, in Summit camp, for G. W,  Rumberger, and he is getting ore.  About a thousand tons of ore monthly are said to be shipped from the  Jumbo, in Rossland, to the Granby  smelter.  The copper matte from the B. C.  Copper Co.'s smelter at Greenwood; is  now sent to the Tacoma smelter for  bessemerizing.  The Granby converter, at the smelter, which has been running single  shift for a while, was started on double  shift again this week.  The second large Farrell crusher  from the Jenckes Machine Co., Sher-  brooke, Quebec, is due to arrive at the  B.C. Copper Co.'s works any day.  At the-Rathmullen, Summit camp,  a force of three men has been working  under Foreman Scrafford. This force,  it is said,:will be increased shortly.  A shipment of five cars daily is now  being made from the Oro Denoro to  the Granby smelter, under the contract  recently entered into with that reduction works.   ���  Trouble has been experienced lately  by the pipe line, that supplies air for  the No. 4 Granby tunnel, freezing, up.  It is once more in shape, however, and  the long bore is steadily growing longer." '''! ���; '.'.'���'���.���������   -  ATHELSTAN TO  INCORPORATE  Wellington Camp Property to  Be Stocked.

Alayor Rumberger Is Atade   A  District Vice-  President.  At its annual meeting at Victoria  this week the Provincial Mining Association re-elected John Keen as president and J. B. I-Iobson, vice president;  resident vice-president, Rowland Ma-  chim, Victoria. District vice-presidents chosen were: Atlin, J.H.Hrown-  !ee; Cariboo, John Hopp; Cowichan,  P. J; Pearson; Phoenix, Geo. W. Rumberger; Nelson, Leslie Hill; Rossland,  E. B. Kerby; Revelstoke, M. Brown;  Vancouver, R. P. McLellan; Victoria,  E. Dewdney; Yale, A. E. Howse; Ymir,  I). W.Moore.  Vancouver was chosen as the place  of the next annual gathering.  A committee from the association  waited on the government and asked  for an outline of the modifications they  proposed to the two per cent tax. The  government in reply thanked the committee and said they would he glad of  suggestions for an alternative to the tax  mentioned.  ��� The convention also passed a resolution urging the Dominion government to appoint a minister of mines  for the Pacific coast. Senator Temple-  man's name was mentioned in connection with this matter.  Another resolution urged the provincial government to issue crown  grants for mineral claims within fifteen  days after application is made for  same.  Another resolution asked that passenger steamers be allowed to carry ex  Summit Camp Mine that  Has Shipped Over  27,000 Tons.  J. J. Campbell, ot the Hall Mining  and Smelting Co., Nelson, was a visitor  at Eholt this week, for the purpose of  inspecting the Emma mine, two miles  from there, in which the smelter company is interested, and which it has  been actively operating for over a year.  For some time past shipments from the  Emma have been made from two large  glory holes, the second and latest  opened being on the B. C. spur. At  this point work was recently discontinued, and a few men temporarily laid  off. A tunnel, however, has been started farther down the from the original  ore quarry, and a hoist from the No. 2  quarry will be installed at this point,  the tunnel being on an incline.  Ore from the Emma has been found  very desirable for use as a flux at the  different Boundary-Kootenay smelters  when the supply was more than needed  by the Nelson smeller. Thus shipments have been made to the Trail,  Boundary Falls, Greenwood and Granby  smelters, latterly a large part of the  output going to the last named reduction works. Since the first of January the Emma shipped over 5,000  tons of ore, while in KJ03 the shipments were about 22,000 tons.  It is stated that W. L. Hogg, of  Montreal, has arranged to shortly begin operations on the Arlington-Burns  group, near Greenwood, and that  negotiations are in progress for reopening the Bruce claim, near Midway.  .... Three'parts of the Nordberg, .blowing engine, each weighing 18,000  lbs., have been placed in position at  the B. . C. Copper Co.'s smelter at  Greenwood, it being arranged to be  operated by either steam or electricity.  At the Senator, Summit camp, which  was bonded and is being ������ worked by  the Granby smelter, shipments are being made from the. old Rathmullen  spur at :the rate of about one car  daily. The, ore body opened up is  proving to be larger than anticipated.  No word has yet been received locally as to the date of the postponed  meeting of the Snowshoe shareholders,  to ratify the amalgamation agreement  with the Iiritish Columbia Copper Co.  As soon as it does come, operations  are expected to be resumed at the  Snowshoe with the least possible delay.  HOCKEY AT GREENWOOD.  Birnie Chosen as Alderman.  Last Saturday nominations were  held for the election of a councilman  to sit in the place of A. S. Williamson,  who resigned after being chosen in  January for the East Ward. There was  no contest. J. B. Boyle proposed the  name of L. Y. Birnie, which" was seconded by Dr. R. B. Boucher, and  when the time had expired Mr. Birnie  was declared elected by the returning  officer, I). J. Matheson.  Last week's issue of the British  Columbia Gazette announces that \V.  R. Williams and L. Y. Birnie have  been appointed as license and police  commissioners for the city of Phoenix.

Wednesday evening a picked up  team of Phoenix puck chasers went to  Greenwood and played the team of  that town. Charles Bell and E. P.  Shea were the goal umpires and Thos.  Lyons referee. The ice was soft and  poor, and the Greenwood team won  the match by a score of 4 to 2. Following was the line up:  GREKNWOOD  Stowe Goal..  Dill Point..  Warren. ... .Cover Point  Steer Forwards.

A return game  will probably take place on the Phoenix rink next week.  Steps are being taken by those interested in the Athelstan mine, in  Wellington camp, to incorporate that  property, taking in also the Jackpot,  which has been acquired since the  syndicate took hold a few months  since. This is being done primarily  for the convenience of those interested  and not particularly to make sales of  the shares.       ��� '.., ������������.."  While the getting of the company in  shape is going on, the shipping of ore  will be discontinued. "For some time  the syndicate has been working on a  plan to get a spur built to the mine by  the C. P. R., a distance of three miles,  as the grade would run,, and a favorable reply is expected shortly. Up to  the present the ore has all been hauled on wagons or sleighs for a mile up  hill to the Winnipeg spur, whence it  was taken to the smelters of the district...;- .   '���  In consequence of the stoppage, of  shipments, the force at the Athelstan  has been materially reduced, and but  few men are being kept on at development; ;'..'. '  Work was taken up at the Athelstan last June by local syndicate, who  obtained an option on a majori ty: of  the shares of the old company. Shipments of ore have been steady, and it  is popularly believed that_ the returns  from the smelters have been'-'most satisfactory. But the cost of hauling the  ore has been quite an item, and this  will be discontinued for the present, at  least. George H. Collins has been in  active charge of the Athelstan since it  resumed. Mr. Collins was formerly in  charge of the Golden Crown, also in  Wellington camp.  SICK BUT A FEW DAYS.  PHOENrX   Cole  ..W.Cook  . . Church  .. P. Cook  ...Coulton  .. Strutzel  Pneumonia Carried Off Henry Henrikson at  tbe Hospital.  Last week Thursday a miner named  Henry Henrikson was taken to the  Phoenix General Hospital, suffering  from acute lobar pneumonia. He was  seriously ill when he reached the hospital, and grew steadily worse, expiring  in that institution Sunday afternoon.  The funeral was held Wednesday of  this week, interment taking place in'  the Phoenix cemetery, Rev. T. Green  officiating. Funeral services were held  at Phoenix Miners' Union hall.  Henrikson had been a resident of  this camp on and off for three years,  being employed at the Granby mines  just before his death, and also previously at the Snowshoe. A year ago  he made a visit to Finmonsen.Sweden,  where he was born. He was a young  man of about 34 and unmarried, with  two brothers living at Ironwood Michigan. Henrikson was well thought of  in this camp where he had many  friends among his countrymen.  H. A.   King,   of Greenwood,    has  j taken up his residence in Chicago.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

'   Recently the   statement was   published,  on  the authority  of H.   E.  Macdonell, t*. P.   R.  general  freight  as en 1 at N>l*on. that freight rates on  'ores had been reduced  from   Phoenix  mines to ihe Boundary smelters   from  37>2 to 3ocents per ton.   The  statement was also marie that this reduction  was not made  because of any 'com  petition, as there is no competition   in  the Boundary, so far as the mines are  concerned, but for the purpose of aiding the mining industry of this section.  Of course the C.   P.  R.  officials are  not aware of the fact  that  the Great  Northern railway has a permanent survey into Phoenix,^and that while conj  strucuon has been delayed for a couple  of years for various causes, it is  more  than likely to' be 'carried  into effect'  this yeai.   A great corporation like the  C. P. R. nould not.  of course, know  anything about a matter of that kind.  '    But be that as it may,  the fact re-  - mains  that the reduction  has   been  'made, and it will tesult in a saving of  - perhaps $75,ooo>per year to the mine  owners ol the Boundary���a saving by  no means insignificant when the low  grade of the ores is taken into consider;  ,ation-    We die thankful that this  cut  in rates has  been, granted.    Outside  journals are commenting favorably on  this reduction and the probably, favor-  , able tesult to  the mining industry of  the Boundary, and they may  well do  so. Cheap smelting, plus cheap freight  rates on ores ���liolh of which are being  ,ieali/ed no\ws never before-^cannot  tail to be  of  greatest   benefit  to  our  mine owners,   and  so  to the entire  Boundary    Both   ha\e  been needed  *>ince the camp fiist began to send ore  to the smelters, and in the  course  of  time both will be e\en lower than they  art'  today.

Di'skkm's 10 Prosper ��� Extravagance and high handed proceedings on  the part of the executive, and because  it is generally believed affairs are being  directed in the interests of a clique,are  the aparent reasons why the Provincial  Mining Association has lost its hold  upon the afflictions of the public. One  year ago the country was aflame in its  interest, but today the association is  languishing. It has done good work,  especially in settling the Crow's Nest  coal strike, and for that act deserves  to prosper.���Slocan Drill.  IKiiniVli IN A KIGHTEOUS CAUSE.

Peace on,cc more reigns in Rossland  city council.  Nelson has a new foundry, that has  just started operations.  John Houston, M. L. A., has gone  to Edmonton to locate in business.  Fernie's Board of Trade ga\e a ball  and netted $150, to pay off some obligations.  A movement is on foot to establish  a telephone line between Armstrong  and Kelowna.  The Kamioops branch of the Provincial Mining Association has officially declared itself dead.  Two bodies, victims of the explosion  of May 22, 1902, at the Fernie coal  mines, have been discovered.  The Japanese consul at Montreal  has protested against the anti-Japanese legislation [Kissed by our local assembly.  Owing to disci 1 initiating rates by the  railroad, Mason & Risch are moving  their headquarters for pianos from Nelson to Calgaiy.  The coionci's jury at Victoria, enquiring into the cause of the loss of the  steamei Clallam and 54 lives on Janu-  aiy 8th, delheied a verdict Friday  finding Captain Robeits guilty of man-  slaughtei and Chief engineer Delaunay  criminally culpable.  The Nicola, Kamioops & Similkameen Coal and Railway Company  have given notice of their intention to  ask the Dominion Parliament to pass  an act empoweimg them to issue  bonds to the extent of $35,000 per  mile and to enter into arrangements  with the C. P. R. for operating tbe  line.  Slocan ore shipments for 1904 are  in excess of 2,100 tons.  For January the payroll of the Crow's  Nest  Pass Coal Co. was $141,050.  The fourth cleanup of the Calumet  stamp mill, at Camborne, has yielded  $8,000"  The Payne is shipping its iron ore,  obtained from the mill, to the Trail  smelter.  New Denver expects a good summer  as most of its adjacent mines will be  working.  Rossland mines have 900 men employed, with a payroll of $90,000 per  month.  I.ast week the Sunset mine, in the  Slocan, paid $6,000 in dividends, making $60,000 paid by this mine in profits.  'I he coal output of the Crow \ Nest  Pass collieries in 1903 was 661,118  tons, an increase of 50 per cent over  that of 1902.  The Ottawa in the Slocan is bending  down ore for another shipment. Some  of it is extra high grade, running in the  neighborhood of 500 oz.  Riblet&Co., of Nelson, have secured  a contract for the erection ; of an aerial  tramway for the Alice mine, nearCres  ton, whiclvwill.be a mile long.  LeRoi No. 2 of Rossland has declared a dividend of one shilling per  share, amounting to ^6,ooo. P'or the  year ending September 30 last the  company earned profits of ;��i 5,475,  and carried forward a balance of ��9,-  471.  Rossland's output last week was as  follows: LeRoi, 5,376 tons; Centre  Star, 1,350; War Eagle 1,200; Kootenay  210; Jumbo, 350; LeRoi No. 2, 570;  LeRoi No. 2 (milled), 54o;Spit/ee,2oo.  Total for the week, 9596 tons, and for  the year to date, 62,699 tons"  The event of last week in   Rossland  was the report  of the  LeRoi   annual  meeting and  the   announcement   of  $50,00 profits in January.   It  is believed that  this  record can  be maintained readily in the  future, owing to  the development of large and good  grade ore bodies in the LeRoi deeps.  It is stated that work will shortly be  resumed on the Molly Gibson  mine,  near Nelson, which was closed a  year  since bv a snow-slide in which  several  lives were lost and all mine  buildings  demolished.   There is plenty of ore in  sight in the mine on the first,   second,  third and fourth levels.   The mine lias  been opened by a series of four tunnels.  The lower one is 500  feet from  the  apex of the vein. The ore averages 60  ounces in silver and 15 per cent  lead  to the ton.

I I���  A BUSINESS PROPOSITION.  Nellber Just Nor Equitable.  The system of taxation of mines  and output as 111 vogue in British Columbia is hardly just or equitable to  the miner or company. Assessments  should be made on the net output of a  mine, and not on the gross output after deducting freight and treatment  charges. Inducements .should be  made to get capital to invest in mining. Tax the profit and,not enterprise. Where such laws are in force  in our western states the results are  more than satisfactory.���Chicago Mining World,  ��ii����*t8i*es��***��*s��**<��o����  �� STRICTLY BUSINESS 2  9 ���  o������s*��*a��09**se*<��g��s*<��*  Advertising is like ironing, ��� can't  do it with a cold iron���got to keep up  your enthusiasm.

To the subscribers of the Phoenix  General Hospitah-  It is with pleasure I make the annual report to this general meeting. It  is not necessary for me to .direct your  attention to the increasing favor of our  hospital with the general public, as it  is apparent to all.  During the year there has been added many necessary things to the equip,  ment, chief among which is an operating table, stands for the operating  room, and bedside tables for the  wards. The cost for these has been  about $350.  The building has been made stronger, warmer and more convenient by  lining the basement with paper and  lumber; by placing a locker in the  basement for fruits, vegetables and  liquids; by cutting a door between the  parlor and the nurses' room, and by  adding many shelves in the private  wards, bed-rooms, kitchen pantries. A  living room has also been built in the  basement for the janitor. These improvements and repairs have cost about  $250-   ���.������-���'  A steam heating plant was installed  in November at a cost of about $750.  This greatly adds to the comfort of the  building, reduces the amount of-, work  for. the nurses, apd will make a difference of at least $100 per annum in the  fuel bill. Right here, I wish to add  that the Hospital is tinder obligations  to the International Coal & Coke Co.  for a donation of 40 tons of coal,  which will probably run us until  October.  It having become necessary to enlarge the cess-pool, the board very  wisely concluded that it would be better, and in the "end far cheaper to construct a septic tank. This was done  at a cost of" $450. By adding these  improvements, equipments and repairs, we have contracted for the new  year an additonal debt of $534.41.  Notwithstanding this seeming extravagance, I feel sure that this meeting will confirm the acts of the board  in remedying many blunders in original construction, and in so doing, paving  the way for a more economic administration of finances in the future.  Last spring the matron, Miss Wallace Johnston, found that the work was  entirely too heavy for two nurses to  handle. Upon her recommendation  the board secured the services of Miss  Howe, an experienced nurse from Nelson, B. C. I assure you that this step  was necessary, else it would never  have been recommended. Very many  times since that the work .has been  very trying and ardous for three. Just  at this time, I am informed by the  matron, that she may have to call upon me for some one to do the kitchen  work for a few days.  I am specially pleased to report to  this general meeting, that the staff of  nurses in Phoenix hospital has no superior. They are and have been thorough and efficient. It is with the  deepest regret I have to record  the receipt and acceptance of the  resignation of Miss Catherine Fraser  early in December. She was a power  in her work and has been greatly  missed.  The matron is again to be congratulated in filling Miss Fraser's place.  She has secured Miss Coppock, the  gold medal graduate from the Provincial Jubilee Hospital of Victoria. Miss  Coppock in addition to years of practical nursing, was a long time matron of  St. Luke's Hospital at Whatcom,  Washington.  During the year there have been received and treated 140 patients, with a  grand total of 1,641 sick of Hospital  days. The average number of days  per patient being 11 4-7. The average  number of patients per month 11 yi'.  The maximum number of patients per  month 23. The minimum number, of  patients per month 10. Of the total  number of patients ioi were contract and charity, 39 were private  patients, paying for care and treatment  in the General Ward $15 per week  and in private wards $25 per week.  Of this number the following persons  died: August Mueller, Jan. 4th, tuberculosis; John Salmon, March 6th,  accident; Fred Mellol, Nov. 2nd, tuberculosis.   These  were  all  absolutely  hopeless cases when entering the Hospital. ...  It is due the staff and physicians to  report that among diseases treated  there have been fclood poisoning, lung,  typhoid arid pneumonia fevers. That  a large number of operations have  been performed and among them some  very delicate and dangerous. That as  a result of accidents many of the severe-  est type have been handled. But for  our Hospital established, equiped  and in thoroughly competent hands, I  am morally certain that there would have  been many more deaths. '  It is hardly possible to lay too much  stress upon the marvelous way in which  the Hospital Ladies' Aid has assisted  in this grand work of mercy and charity. During the year this noble band  of women have contributed in cash  $505.95. Thus making a grand total  to date of $1,139.45. In addition  thereto many a weary home-sick patient  has been cheered and the hours of pain  made brighter and easier to bear by  the beautiful flowers contributed.  It has been giatifying indeed to receive so many donations from abroad.  These together with contributions from  resident friends totaled $541.50. To  all the friends at home and abroad,the  Board wishes, me to extend its hearty  thanks, and to cordially invite your  future support and co-operation to the  end that Phoenix General Hospital  may forge on, and not only sustain its  present enviable reputation, but lay  deep and well the foundation for the  mighty work it is destined to accomplish, when the camp shall demand  ten times the Hospital capacity we  now have.

I  suffered with a severe backache, indigestion and numerous ills, so I could  neither eat nor sleep, and I thought I  would give up my work, which I could  not afford to do.  "One of my customers who was greatly  helped by Peruna advised me to try it,  and I procured a bottle tho same day. I  used it faithfully and felt a marked improvement. During tho next two months  I took five bottles, and then felt splendid. Now my head is clear, my norves  steady, I enjoy food, and rest well. Peruna has been worth a dollar a dose to  me."���D. I..

The Boundary chiefly, but all British Columbia as well, owes a debt of  gratitude to the proprietors of the  Phoenix Pioneer for their magnificent  special issue, a copy of which has been  received in this office with great pleasure. The Pioneer's reputation for  general smartness of appearance, and  for plentiful and accuratel data of interest to the mining world, is no ne��  thing to the members of our chief industry; but on this occasion our contemporary has surpassed itself, and  has set a pace which the press of the  largest coast towns will be hard put to  it to beat. '  This special issue is, in excellence  of typographical get-up, in wealth of illustration, and in amazing and interesting variety of information, a most  brilliant advertisement for the city of  Phoenix, for the Boundary district,and  for the province of British Columbia.  A paper showing the enterprise of the  Pioneer does its town and district a service that'cannot be estimated in mere  dollars and cents. It is a living and  enduring testimony to the character of  the people, the wealth of the district,  and the energy and enterprise of the  members of the journalistic fraternity  it is so fortunate as -to possess. We  wish our contemporary the good luck  it so well deserves.���B.,C. Mining Exchange, Vancouver.  A Handsome Special.  The Phoeniv Pioneer and Boundary  Mining Journal, of Phoenix, British  Columbia, has issued a "Boundary  Mining District Number" in which are  described and illustrated the more  prominent mines and reduction plants  of that district. It is a very handsome  number of sixty pages, conveying a  very excellent idea of the progress that  that section of British Columbia  has madt in mining, and does great  creditto its publisher.  Among its many interesting special  articles is one on the Granby mines,  now one of the most important copper  mining properties on the American continent. Another is that of the Snow-  shoe Gold and Copper Mines, Ltd,  and that of the British Columbia Copper Company, Ltd."��� Los Angeles,  Cal., Mining Review.
