A resume of Boundary mining during 1909 will appear in next week's issue of the  Pioneer.  The ore shipments of local mines  for the week show a considerable drop  (mm the previous week, the result of  two holidays.*  Work continues   on    the   .Dynamo  claim near Greenwood, with four   men |  employed.

Fuller, owner of the Bay  mine in Skylark camp, will recommence work with five men on tbe 1 15-  foot shaft next week. The Bay ore is  high grade, with free gold scattered  through the quart?..  M. K. Rogers, formerly in charge of  the Nickel Plate mine at Hedlev, has  secured the Hidden Creek mines, near  Fort Simpsom, for a large sum. He  is now carrying but an extensive  scheme of development.  William Thompson, formerly man  ager of the Nickel Plate, Columbia and  Kootenay and Velvet mines, is now a  resident of Barrie, Ontario, where he  is engaged in mining and in the nianu  facturing of mining machinery.  The tunnel on the E.P.U. properly  is in 1300 feet and ledge matter is  showing up well. The rock is somewhat different in character to the surface showing, but carries iron pyrites  and apparently is wider than was expected.  The handsome new machine building of Granby mines has been completed and the machinery is being I  installed. It will be thoroughly eqip-  ped in every detail, is splendidly  ighted, and is conviently located lor  tbe mine and workmen as well.

Two local rinks will probably go to  Greenwood this evening to take part  in a friendly game.  1910  The initial dividend declared by the  Hedley Gold Mining company, re  ported in the Pioneer two weeks ago,  has resulted in the stock becoming  active on the curb. The first transaction took place in New York-recently,  when 200 shaies were sold at $20.  Mr. Sampson will be foreman ot an important mine. His appointment to the  position was made by T. K..

Mr.   Erb   thinks   tha'  the first ore will be shipped from   New  Dominion properties in   about   ninety  days.    The Rawhide mine at  Phoenix  is now being developed  with   that   expectation.  At the smelter, three furnaces are  beingjun at the present time, smelting  aboutfi 600 tons daily, but about a  third of the ore comes from the sur  face of British Columbia company's  mines, which cannot be operated 111  severe weather. Jf nq oilier supply of  ore was at hand, such as the New Dominion is going to furnish, one furnace  .would have to be shut down for from  two to three months each year.  It has been officially denied that  Granby has made any attempt to secure  control of the British Columbia Copper company, but a discussion of a  probable consolidation coutinues in  Wall street journals. It is stated that  certain bankers have made offers to arrange an exchange of Granby stock for  the stock of the British Columbia com  pany, but that the offers have not  reached a point to tempt British Columbia people to sell.  Greenwood vs. Phoenix at the  Local Rink  The Phoenix skating rink will be the  scene of ihe first match in this season's  series of ihe Boundary Hockey league,  and    which   lakes   place   New   Year's  night.    The local puckchasers  will he  opposed by  the Greenwood team  and  good   lively hockey may be   expected,  as both teams will make a strong effort  to siart the year as   well as the season  with a victory.    Greenwood claims to  have secured some fast blood for their  this season's aggregation   and expects  to be in front of the   band   wagon   in  the chase for the  championship silver-  w<i e.     At the same time   Phoenix will  trot out a hunch of hucke) colts, whose  mark is intended to be   nothing   short  of landing the   Boundary   mug  in   the  big copper camp   at   the close  of the  hockey schedule.    The  game   tonight  will start at eight o'clock sharp.  The  New Coach on C.P.R.  e  C.P R.    commences   the   new  year   with   a   handsome coach,   fresh  from the car shops, running into Phoenix ; it is  nicely  upholstered and   up-  to-date, and what is still   more   important,  it is   clean.    A   smoking   coach  is also provided.     If the  C.P.R.   has  resolved to give Phoenix this  kind  ol  accommodation   for   the   entire   year,  and stick to their   resolution, they will  have tbe best wishes of this city for a  prosperous 1910.    And if the company  will now take up a   little  of the  slack  between here and  Eholt   they will   be  giving   Phoenix   a   highly   satisfactory  service.  THE TIP TOP HAS  A FINE SHOWING  Active     Development    Work  Being Carried. On  The upper shaft on the Tip Top  claim, on Skylark hill, is 35 feet deep,  and in good ore from the surface to  the drift being run at the bottom,  which is also in good ore, showing a  ledge of copper carrying gold values as  well, over 16 feet wide.  This property was located  in   1894,  the former owners doing sufficient development   to obtain  a crown grant.  Last  year  the claim   was  sold   to a  syndicate headed by H.  V.  Fuller, of  the Bay mine, an   adjoining  property,  who sank a shaft 165 feet  deep, near  the copper   shaft, on   a  quartz   ledge  running $42 in gold.    The  Tip  Top  is now an incorporated company, under  the laws of British Columbia, and the  company has given a bond on  half of  the company's stock   to   the  Consolidated Gold Mines company, of Seattle,  who are developing the copper showing  and will install a   10-h.p. electric hoist  on the lower shaft   and   sink   another  100 feet on the rich   gold   lead.    The  Crescent Fraction hoist will be moved  at once, and work started on   this fine   -  showing immediately, under the direction of M. Bamford, one of the directors of the Consolidated   Gold   Mines  Co., who arrived this   week.    Besides  the two shafts mentioned, a-tunnel has  been started to strike the copper ledge  at depth.    This ledge   carries   20 per  cent   sulphur   and   is   most   desirable  fluxing ore.   A carload is now awaiting  treatment   at   the  B. C. Copper company's smelter.���Greenwood Times.  ', e  -'.    J!  rrow  in  from  Phoenix who have watched this .business  a very humble beginning in 1-899 to what.it is today,  but just for an illustration we may say that we*frequently sell' as much stock in one day now, as we  had in the store altogether in the fall of 1899.  We have planned big things for 1910, a new up-  to-date store, a full stock of wearing goods for man,  woman and child.  This is a big undertaking, and m order to carry-  it successfully to completion, we must have your help  and co-operation, aud to merit this we have, resolved  to eive your needs our careful attention during the  coming, and all years. We will sell our goods during  1910 as low as is consistent with legitimate business.  We have made mistakes during the past year,  we are only human, we will likely make mistakes  during this year, but we want you to know that our  aim is to please you and to make this store a depend-  place to deal. ,.  If you did not give, this store a s>are of your  Consolidated Co. Takes Over Valuable Silver-  Lead Properly.  The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of, Canada has taken oyer/  under an option and lease, the Sullivan  group ot mines at Kimberley, in East  Kootenay. The lease is'a long term  one with an option to purchase* control ot the Sullivan group Mining Co.,  which is held by the Federal Mining  and Smelting Co., which in turn is a  subsidiaiy company of the American  Smelting and Refining Co. The lease,  does 1101 include the Sullivan grgup  company's smelter at Kimberly, but  the exeicise ol the option -ot purctiase  ot the stock held by iffc Federal Mining and Smelling Co., if such action  lie decided on later, would give the  Consolidated company control of it as  web as ot the mine.  The returns from the Consolidated  Mining & Smelting company'- smelter  al Tiail for the coming year will constitute a record in production " tur that  institution. This is assured by Uie  liguies lor November which total  $524,000, bunging ine aggregate tor  Uie 11 months up to $5,498,447,  which is only auoui $7000 uclow ihe  largest, year's production up lo the  present. When- ihe ^returns' tor December are added the total for the  year will be several hundred thousand  dollars greater than lor any sinnliar  peiiod since the smelter commenced  operations.  Of tne November production 47  per cent, was gold, 15 per cent, silver,  6 per cent, copper and 22 per cent,  lead.

A large number of young people  attended the annual ball of the Pboe-  ,nix Min"rs' Union Friday evening,  which was its usual success, and hailed  Christmas in merry dance, which continued till early morning, a splendid  Chrisimas supper being served by  D.mny Deane at midnight.  The feature of the day's festivities in  the city were the excellent menus of  the Christmas dinners at the local  hotels. The Brooklyn, which is famed  throughout the province in this particular, excelled itself; its dinner not  only elicited great praise fiom guests,  but was such as would do credit to  hotels of eastern cities. Deane's hotel  was in gala auire and its menu included all the delicacies of the season,  while guests at the King's and Dominion were also served in splendid  styl-.  In the evening a carnival was held  at the rink, with YVernei's band in  attendance, but owing to festivities  throughout the city, it was not so  largely attended as expected. Chas.  Lackey won tbe men's mce, A. Anderr  son, tbe boys' race, and A-.' McQueen  the free-for-all: couple race, Miss A.  Pierce and A. \V. McQueen; best rep-  resenta-.ive character, F. Isaacson; best  gents costume, A. Mettinson; best  indies' costume, Miss F. Graham.  Chrlitmas Day Nuptials  .Christmas chimes and wedding bells  rang merrily together in Phoenix last  Saturday, Cupid being the master of  ceremonies at two happy events, And  the whole world is going oui tb tnetr  fellowman.  At 7.15 am. the marriage took  place at the home of Mrs. Graham, of  her eldest daughter, Cora, to Duncan  A., Grant, principal of Phoenix'.public  schqoK.v>The ceremony was performed  ^t^R.'W. ^Hibbert,,pastor of the  ;Metho3[ist*church, in the presence of  atfewj invited guests, The bride was  aUerided by her sister, Miss Lou Gra-  ham,;while her brother, John Graham,  supported the groom. After an "��� elaborate wedding breakfast 'and felicita  lions to the happy couple, the bridal  party left amid showers of rice and  good wishes to catch the nine o'clock  train for Spokane and other cities. Mr.  and Mrs. Grant are expected to return  to. Phoenix today.  At eight o'clock Christmas evening  two other popular young people of the  city were made happy, when Warren  Mitchell led Miss Zilpha Oxley to the  alter. The marriage ceremoney was  peiformed by the Rev. Samuel Lundie,  B. A , pastor of the Presbyterian  church, in the Dominion hotel parlois.  On Monday the newly married couple  left on a nip to the coast, and on the  return from their honeymoon will reside in Phoenix.  Sokes Lapsed Coal Claims  An oulsider named Reg. C. Brown,  representing the Canadian Development Co. of Vancouver, went into  Princeton and quietly stole a march  on the mining enthusiasts of that burg  who had not kept quite up to dale on  tbe coal situation, says the Kamloops  Standard. His way was to stake  claims that had lapsed, principally  those of the B C. Colliery Co ,   which   though the   fact was not  suspected  hy the general public���had failed to  keep up the requirements for holding  its lands. Accompanied by George  Allison and Bert Thomas, two men  who knew the country, he set out on a  hunting trip���but the game he was  after- was not tbe four-footed kind.  When the party returned to town  they had staked-about 18,000 acres ol  coal lands, including the former B.C.  Collier company's, and of various  prospectors who had neglected their  holdings, as well as some entirely new  claims. The local men who shared in  the staking came in for a subtantial  interest in the property.  AUSTRIANS v. WELSH  Bullets Figure In Lively Scene  on  Thur.day  Nlftit  Austrians, Welshmen, an English  mucker boss and 30-30 bullets figured  in a lively escapade at a local hotel on  Thursday night. Beyond a few cuts  and bruises nothing serious occurred,  although the provincial police have  taken a hand in the proceedings and  tbe local lock-up is now the head-  'otnetr-orrffis^^rnrt-TiCTr-quiTOrig^WBi'tc-  arid attending the funeral of the  Austrian on Wednesday. " Countrymen  of deceased started to make things  interesting for the mucker boss- and  his friends, which resulted/ in tbe  Welshmen making a charge and putting the Austrians on the hike. Several  shots are reported to have been fired  during the melee,'arid-the complete returns of casualtieprtifili be given in the  local police court.  ;t ���   Boonle Briar Bush  The Bonnie Briar Bush will be presented at Phoenix opera house on Jan.  ibth. It appears as though Ian RJe-r  Laren's stoty of the Bonnie Briar Bush  as dramatized by Jas. McArthiir will  never grow old. Its success has been  and is atill phenomenal, but it nevertheless is not a success that cannot be  accounted for. Of all the good plays  that have graced the stage The Bonnie  Briar Bush is one of the purest and  best. It is a story of human in'erest  unfolding a life's chapter in the simple  Scottish glen, so true to nature anc'  life as to appeal with irresistible force  to the audience. It is' fragrant with  the heather of "Bonnie Scotland," and  is enlivened with pointed yet harmless  Scottish wit.  J. L. Mania io City  J. L. Martin arrived in town from  Spokane on Wednesday and has recently returned from a trip to his old  home in Illinois. Mr. Martin attended  the annual meeting of the Carney Copper company, of which he. is president,  a few days ago, and also visited the  mine at Mullan, Idaho, and is quite  enthusiastic over the results of development work at the property and believes  there is a great future for the Carney.  Mr. Martin is also   managing director  than he had' expected with the amount  ot development work done, and while  here he will let a contract to continue,  the present tunnel.

Father,   mother,  at Phoenix With the exception of  those of the Granby company this  mine is the largest in the Boundary  district.  GEOLOGY  The ore occurs as an immense body,  or series of bodies, 30 to 200 ft. in  width, lying along the contact between  a white crystalline on the west and  footwall side, and a green fissile epi-  dote" materiaj, which may be either  altered argilhte or greenstone-tuff, on  the east. The strike of the orebody  is a little east of north, corresponding  with the direction of the principal  fracture lines 'of the district, and its  dtp is to the east at an angle varying  from ss to 70 deg. The ore,, according to the members of the Geological  Survey of Canada, is a metasomatic replacement of both wall roqks,  The contact with  the limestone is  1  sharp, but the line of demarcation from  the other wall rock is merely commercial. The ore belongs to the class de  scribed by the geologists as the "mag  netic" type, and includes the minerals  magnetite, chalcopynte and pyrite, with  a yery little blende, galena, pyrrhotite,  and an occasional trace of aisenopyrite,  intermixed with calcite, actinolite, gat-  minute, and the complete trip from  the 400 ft. level is made in 35 seconds.  The normal output of the shaft is 100  tons per hour, but this has more than  doubled on occasion. The cage which  is used for handling men and supplies  is served by a James Cooper duplex 1  geared hoist, having rax 14 in. cylin  ders, and a drum 4 ft. 6 in. in diameter with a 4-ft. face. Both hoisting  engines a��e operated by compressed  air at a pressure of from 90 to 100 lb.  per sq. in., the air being taken directly  from the 7-in. main leading to the  compressor house 600 or 800 feet distant.  The compressor house is beside a  small creek and contains, in addittion  to the compressors, a vertical, triplex  single-acting, motor-driven pump which  forces the water to the reservoirs 500  ft. higher. There are two air compressors : one an Ingersoll-Sergeant, 30  drill, Corliss compound steam, two-  stage air compressor with piston intake,  the other a Canadian Rand 40-drill,  duplex, tandem, two stage air compressor. The first machine is now  driven by a rope drive from a 500 h.p.  Westinghouse alternating current motor  making 247  r.p m. at full  load, and  of three each, the resulting raise vary-  ing'ffom 8x12 ft. to 10x20 ft. in cross-  section. If necessary, other holes are  drilled in the roof to obtain tbe desired height. A %% in. Sullivan drill  is employed, mounted on a 7-ft.  column. mi  When the raise Has been advanced  about 50 ft., the direction of inclina  tion is often reversed, and as it approaches the level above it'is flattened  and brought around on the hanging  wall side in the form of drift 01 cham  ber at the top of the raise. The ore  on the hanging-wall side is then drilled  with machines set on tripods and  blasted, after which the ore on the  foot-wall is broken down in benches  In some places the raises are nearly  vertical, in others .they are of corkscrew shape In any case, the stoping  begins at the top and is carried down  by underhand work. Pillars are left  throughout the mine, both longitudinally between the drifts, and transversely from wall to wall.   ���  ^The early method of stoping was to  take the ore out in rooms, 30 to 40 ft.  square and 20 to 25 ft. in height, leaving vertical pillars between, but this  was awkward and expensive, and was  not long practised. In the present  method of underhand work, drill steel  16 ft. in length is used both in the  glory hole and in the stopes, and many  holes are drilled before any are  blasted.    The holes  are fired- simul-  I DEANE'S HOTEL ��  ^    DANNY DEANE, Proprietor. ^  g -  =3  % This is the Largest and Newest Hotel in the city, heated by =|  |= hot water and well furnished throughout for the accommodation =|  |= of the public.

Ltd  NOTES ON MOTHER LODE MINE  (Continued from Second 1'iixc)  whereby the car is dumped through  the shock of the cat and weight of the  ore and is returned empty to its original position l>y means of counterweights. Two men are required to  handle the cars  The ore drops into the shaft ore  pockets, the gales of m Inch are about  45 ft, below. Thee gfites are of the  finger type similar t<> those in use al  the Granby mines, but differ slightly in  the method of action. The four double  finger are pivoted on a rod at the front  of the chute and are raised by chains  attached to the cross-bar of the piston  of the air lift. On the inside ol the  shaft timbers, at the mouth of the  chute, is a larjje sheet-iron gate to  catch the fine material which will pass  between the fingers when ihe gate is  closed. The sheet-iron gule is lul-  anced by a weight and is raised and  lowered by hand. This gate binds  badly nhen there is a large amount of  fines in the ore, and two men are required in loading the skip, whereas  with the Granby type but one man is  needed. . *  On the other working levels, viz.,  2oo, 300, and 400 ft. levels, the mine  cars are side-dumping and have a V  shaped bottom. These also hold 2^  tons, but are drawn by horses in trains  of only two cars each. The loaded  cars are drawn on a bridge spanning  the ore pockets and there dumped by  hand, while the horse returns along a  shelf or drift cut at the side of the ore  pocket for a passageway. The pockets  are provided with gates similar to those  on the 60-ft. level.  The ore chutes throughput the mine  are strongly made, being built to withstand much hard usage. The posts  are stalls, 10 to 20 in. in diameter and  up to 20 ft. in bight. -Behind these  are la;d pieces of heavy lagging until  the desired hight of the bottom of the  chute is reached, usually about 6 ft.  above the level of the rails, On top  of this lagging is placed a false set  which forms the optning ofthe chute.  Dividers are also placed between the  front stulls, or posts, at the top and  bottom of the chute opening. The  planks of the chute are spiked to the  lagging and to the lower divider. The  chute opening is 48-in. wide and approximately 3-fr. high, and is closed  with the ordinary plank- gate made  in  three sections, the  second  and   third  ���mma-uie mat   m��= in   mjuil   ui   iin-.  newer chutes arc Rates made of  heavy  sheet iron are used.  The mine is well lighted throughout  by 16-c.p. incandescent lamps, placed  every 35 ft. along the drifts -and crosscuts. The mine employs 'a ' total of  about 185 men, most of whom live  near bv in I'ouses owned by the com  pany. There are a large number of  four-room bouses for the m��rried men,  while a good boarding house is maintained for those unmarried. The output depends upon the requirements at  the smeltery, and varies from 1000 to  1600 tons per day. The output per  man employed has averaged from 8)4  to 9 tons ptr day for months at a  time, with a total cost stated not to exceed 65c. per ton for the ore delivered  in the railroad cars at the mine���surely  an enviable record. About 60 tons of  ore are broken daily for each drill used  in stoping.  F. AUGUSTUS HEINZR  WINS BIG LAND CASH  Canadian Court Confirms His  Title to 550,000 Acres in  Trail District.  The Supreme Court of Canada has  hand.d down a decision in ihe case of  the Canadian Pacific Railroad against  F. Augustus Heinze, the now famous  copper king, of Butte, Mont., confirm  ing the title to Mr. Heinze of 550,000  acres of land in the Trail   mining  dis-  with the results of these surveys. Fire  and careless cutting have resulted in  the deterioration of the reserves, and  a long period of management will be  required to bring them back into proper condition. Ofthe whole area of  r0,000,000 acres -comprised in the reserves, about 1,250,000 acres have  been surveyed.  CANADA HAS ENTERED  ON LONG PROSPERITY  THE EAST CAN'T HAVE HIM  trict of British Columbia. The land  has a valuation varying from, $10 to  $100 an acre and was given to Heinze  by the Canadian government for building a railroad in that district 16 years  ago.  Fsrett Survey N��etfed  There is the greatest need of a survey of our Northern Forest Belt, to  say nothing of its protection from fire.  An exploration of this tract, similar-to  the exploration of Northern Ontario  made in 1900 by the Government of  that province, could, it is estimated, be  made for $200,000, an amount, which  spread over ten years, would mean an  annual expenditure.of $20,000. Some  of the main lines of travel through the  country are well known, it is true, but  areas are entirely unknown, particularly away from these routes, and in  order to .secure adequate knowledge  upon which to base proper adminstra-  tion ofthe country definite knowledge  of it is essential.  On the forest  reserves  timber surveys were continued during 1908 and j  British Columbia Refuses to let Premier Mo-  Bride Go  The Colonist, the chief Conservative organ, protests against the movement for Premier McBride to become  leader of the Federal party. It says :  ���He has so neihing moe in mind  than political adva cement. S me  thing higher than party success. As  a native son of this great province,  trusted as no other man at the head  of its affairs has ever been trusted with  a great responsibility, an unequalled  opportunity, we think that Mr. McBride feels a stimulus to action along  very different lines than those which  he is supposed to be  thinking about.  "We may tell our eastern friends  that to a British Columbian, British  Columbia offers a field for energetic  statesmanship compared to which mere  party triumphs look insignificant.  There may come a time when events  will lead Mr. McBride into the Federal arena, but, speaking for itself, the  Colonist hopes that it will be many  years before the call of party is more  influential with him than the call of  his-hative province. There is a great  work to be done.in British Columbia,  and we are confident that Mr. McBride will not leave it undone merely  to gratify any personal ambition that  he might entertain. *;  George Northern and Herbert Cole  lost their lives, and Charles Mclvor  barely escaped drowning through the  overturning of their canoe 00 the West  Arm, opposite Proctor, on Sunday afternoon. :',���������"'' ."''..���'���  Phoenix Railway Tlmeiible.  ���'.'���' ���.-.;'.

The most disastrous  thing that could come would be war  in Europe, which would check inflow  of British capital and immigrants.  The primary factor of prosperity is  great undeveloped resources; a second  he willingness of Great Britian to find  all the capital Canada can employ, at  low rates; a third factor, the far-sightedness of Canadian statesmen, who are  devoting energies to opening up the  country and to extension of railways;  a fourth facior is the world's need of  new food sources and the current high  prices, ihe South African and Japanese  wars having prevented for seven years  the normal capital outlay for developing new food supplies; a fifth factor is  the extent to which United States resources a>e developed, leading to immigration ol American farmers into  Canada; again, the world's unappropriated lands are becoming exhausted,  and Canada is one of the few countries  that can still make free grants; lastly,  the time is favorable in; Canada to obtain labor.  One of the influences, which prer  vented development of Canada has  long ceased to operate. The long  winters and the liability to frost even  during summer, have entirely lost their  terrors. Experience has shown that  the large number.of hours of sunshine  pressed into a few months more than  make up for the shortness ofthe ieason.  Further, liability to damage from frost  and drought is diminishing as cultivation extends. The recognition that  the drawbacks to farming ;in western  Canada have been greatly exaggerated  is likely to cause the number, of incoming farmers to grow steadily.

"Protein" in food is the food element that makes bone, muscle and  brain.  Pure flour contains more protein,  in "most useful form, than any other  foocl���but the flour must be pure.  Bran and shorts are waste���if your  flour contains this waste, it is proportionately short in "protein."  Now, if you buy an inferior, poorly  milled flour, you are paying for bran  and shorts, not "protein," and to that  extent you are wasting money.  ROYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR  is milled to make it the purest in the  world: therefore it contains most  protein, is most nourishing, is most  economical to use.  It pays tUe housewife to insist upoi��  getting "Royal Household" guaranteed flour, instead of taking a poorer  fiom which the grocer may be interested in selling  Ogiivie's Royal Household Flour*  la*  I   Kamloops, B.O i  AasSsio 7<xroat��>iVietitreai.Wlanlp��S.
