Neckwear  Thursday one of the most impor  lant deals for ninny a day was con  stimulated when $75,000 in cash was  paid al Greenwood lor the charter of  the Greenwood and Phoenix Tramway, and the holdings of the Greenwood Electric Light Company. The  electric light company is a going concern, the plant of which is valued at  $50,000. The balance of tlie purchase price would seem to represent  the value set upon the charter for a  tramway to Phoenix.  The charter for the tramway company was granted i by the provincial  government and allows the company  the right to build an electric tramway  from the international boundary line  at Midway, up boundary creek to  Greenwood, tapping Phoenix, Wellington, Summit and Deadwood camps.  In view of the fact that two smelters  are now rapidly approaching completion on Boundary creek, that are already making contracts for ore at low  rates, it is obvious that the franchise  for this tramway, touching all of the  best camps of the Boundary, will grow-  to be a most valuable acquisition to its  owners. &  Names of Ihe Vendors.

Hut the  names and identity of the purchasers  are withheld���for the present, at least.  While nothing is given out as to  who the new owners are, it is understood that it is a syndicate of eastern  Canadian   capitalists,   who   know   a  good thing when they see il. Plans  have not yet been formulated as to the  first operations of the syndicate, as far  as can be learned, but at an early date  the work of construction on the tramway will undoubtedly be starlet,  some it is thought that tlie C  people are behind tlie deal.  nobbiest   and'  Bows, flow-  We are showing positively the  most up-to-date Neckwear in Phoenix,  ing ends, Windsor's, Derby's, Four-in-hands,' and tlie,  new Tubular String tie in an endless variety of.  shades and styles.

Bv  on  The city Court of Revision met  the 2vSth ultimo to consider objections  to the assessment roll for 1900. The  court consisted of Mayor Rumberger,  Aldermen McBean, Morrin, Mclnnis  and Clark; all were present but Mr.  Clark. A number of cases came up;  some petitions lor reduction were granted and others were not. The total  assessment is now $262,000. The  court for consideration of the assessment roll for 1901, will probably sit  in the not distant future.  PHOENIX IS ON TOP  Crown   had  been  thus  some time previous.

The business man who fails to advertise in a live local paper is suffering  from false economy, or tbe lack of that  spirit always found in progressive  natures. He is generally selfish and  prefers to hide his commercial light under a peck measure rather than set il  in the columns of a newspaper where  the world can gaze upon it. The  Slocan is full of peck measure advertisers, with just enough of the other  kind to keep the district from getting  choked with the moss that grows upon  anything ofa still nature.���New Denver Ledge.

Development and Shipments.  1 luring the entire  year  the   B.   C.  mine has   been   steadily   shipping   to  Brooklyn. Slemwinder and Rawhide.  Bids have been put in by the different machinery representatives for  the new 20-drill air compressor which  is to be supplied to the Dominion  Copper Co. at an early date, and it is  expected   that   tlie  contract   will   be  the smelters, as the rails ' were laid   to ! awarded soon.  that mine before 1900 was ushered  in. At the same time development  was kept up without cessation.

With-the smelters now being completed at Anaconda andBoundary halls,  the early doubling up of shipments  from I'hoenix and the preparations  making for larger output nil through  the Boundary, it is a pretty safe prediction that in the year 1901 at leas',  half a million tons of Boundary ore  will be mined and treated at Boundary smelters.
