As an amendment, Aldeimen  Punch, Marshall and Claik were, appointed as a committee to wait on the  above officials, and see what can be  done to reduce expenses.  A communication was received  from McArthur & Monk, in regard to  installing a fne alarm system. The  letter was as follows :  Fire Alarm Proposition.  Phoenix, B. C, Jan. 8th, 1902.  The Mayor and Aldermen of tLe City of  Phoenix, B. C.  Gentlemen: In pursuance to a suggestion of His Worship, Mayor Kumbergei,  made at a fire department meeting some  time ago, we beg to submit for jour consideration   the 'accompanying:   plans;  showing a proposed electric lire alarm  system..  ; We will install this system for $225..  We could ���put in one at a much less cost,  but the wires of the proposed system  could be used in fi permanent system,  should the requirements of the city' in  the future need a more expensive fire  alarm line.  (.Tlie main line will be of No. ^insulated copper wire, strung on proper brackets  and pony insulators, fastened to the  present,electric pojes. The branch wires  to ihedifferent boxes will be number H  insulated copper wire,  We propose to have four alarm boxes,  as shown on map, and connect these  same with an electric bell in the house of  Ihe chief and with a gonj; in the Old  Iionsides shaft house.  Our Mr. Mo.ik will be on hand to  answer any questions the. members of  the council may choose to ask.  Trusting our- p'ans will meet with yonr  approval, we remain,  Your obedient servaets.  McAktutu a Monk.  The council then adjourned to meet  in special session Saturday evening.  mine to the surlace, and any shot  likely to break thiough and make connections. This shall is located im?  mediately in the rear of and convenient  to the timber framing house of the  Granby Co., and will be used solely  foi the'purpose of lowering timbers  for use in the Granby mines.  I'or some, time past it has required  almost one entire shift's time for the  lowering of the timbers needed in the  mines thiough the No. 2 .shaft, and as  soon as the new limber shaft is completed and fitted foi use, the No. 2  hoist will be enabled to utilize this  time in hoisting ore���about 150 tons  per shift.  .The timber shaft will be fitted with  a special carriage for the pui pose of  handling limbers of any length', as  well as other appliances of the latest  pattern. Heietofore there has been  some trouble in getting down the longest timbers reepjired. All iarge mines  mines have special facilities for getting  down timbeis, but the Granby is the  first one in the Boundary to utilize a  shaft for this purpose alone. It will  probably be a month before the new  shaft is ready for general use.  Monday evening Mr. Blyth will  give his celebrated lecture, "Experiences in the Beer War." Mr. Blyth  is an entertaining talker,* and having  been in the thick of the fight in South  Attica, has a thorough knowledge of  his subject. The lecture is to be given  to aid in the - church furnishings.  Refreshments will be served by the  Ladies' Aid in the church.    '  Grenby Works Started Again  Last Wednesday.

''Last. S|indaj the regular monthly  meeting.of Greenwood Typographical  Union No; 358 was held in Phoenix,  members coining up the hill from  Grand Forks and Greenwood to attend. The jurisdiction of the union  is the entire Boundary country. In  connection with the monthly business  meeting the first annual banquet was  held at the Dominion House. President Mcliuyre, of the Grand Forks  News, presided, and the usual toasts  were propqsed and responded to. Mine  Host Qillis set out a most attractive  menu, to which full justice was done  by the typographical experts.  A strike of som,e importance is re-  AVebster'ported from, the Qolden Crpwn.  Yesterday was payday at the Gran-  by mines.  City water was put into the Bank  block this week.  Rev. R. B. lilyth arrived from Victoria yesterday.  Mrs. Wm. Lockhart left on Wednesday's train on an extended tiip to To-  tonto.  Neil Stewart, the contractoi, left  last Saturday for an extended trip to  the east.  Thursday 89 children attended our  public school. This is high water  mark in Phoenix.  Tieasurer G. W. Wooster, of the  Granby Co., spent two or thiee days  in the city this week.  Dr. Mathison, dentist, will be at his  office, Bank block, today and tomorrow, January tith.and-12th.  The' office staff of the Snowshoe  mine now occunies the commodious  office building recently completed.

Boswell, who have the contract  for the erection of the Cascade power  line, came in by Wednesday's'train.  Mrs. Philip W. W. King died at  Vuncouver last Saturday, before Mr.  King reached there, the funeral taking  place Monday. She left a month old  child.  Mrs. J."M. Millar received word by-  wire this week that her mother, Mrs.  Malcolm, of Norwich, Out., is very-  ill. ...Mrs. Miliar will go cast if her  mother is not reported better soon.  Thursday night the Eholt Dramatic  Society gave an entertainment at Miners' Union Hall to a good sized audience, closing with the laughable farce,  "My Turn Next," which was well received.  This week the local hockey club has  been putting 111 some hard work practicing for the game which it is expected would be played with the Grand  Forks club last night. The match  has been postponed, however.  W. H.. Dorman, iuspector for the  mainland, with headquarters at Vancouver, made his periodical visit to  the Phoenix postoffice this week Monday; and expressed himself as well  pleased with the1'manner in which the  office is being cqnducted.  At last Suturday's meeting of the  Phoenix Liberal Association, the'fallowing officers were elected: Bresident,  R.A. Scott; vice-president. M. H.Roy;  secretary-treasurer, P. C.

Mala Buildiaf ia 5��xlM Feet aad Fifty-five  Feet f1l|h.  1 Contractor John J. Copp has been  engaged for some months past in the  construction of the stone and brick  portions of the power house now in  course of erection by the Cascade  Water, Power and Light Company.  Mr. Copp has been favored with excellent weather since he started work  on-his contract, and is almost through  with the original work which he undertook. He is likely to remain on the  ground, however, until spring, as several other minor structuies'are planned. The main building of the plant  is 50x150 feet and 55 feeLhigh,' '_:&.,  -���'L. A.' Campbell, of. Rossland: has  erected the pole line connecting the  work with the Phoenix camp. 'Ihe  next feature of his work will be the  stringing the wire, several carloads of  which have already been delivered at  Cascade and other points. As the insulators have not arrived from Germany, it has been decided not to begin stringing wire for a couple of  months.  WAS BONDED  FOR $185,000  Last week Wednesday the Granby  smelter, at Grand Forks, was shut  down for the purpose of connecting up  the blowers that will be used for the  two new furnaces, which have been in  the process of installation for- some  time past. When the works were"  blown out last Wednesday week, Supt.  Hodges stated that he thought the  work could be done in a week's time,  and,in exactly seven   days   he   had        ; --;  blown in the old furnaces once ��� more,  and once again they arc smelting up up- ,     -  waids   of 700  tons  of Phoenix ore  daily. ���  There is quite a little fitting and   ' ,  conducting'yet to be done before , the  two new furnaces will be ready for use,  which will probably be some time in  the course of a couple of weeks. No  time will be lost, however, in getting ���  the new furnaces into working condition, whe then capacity of the smelter  will be about 1,400 tons each 24  hours. About the same time the new  copper converter, the only one in the  province, will be manufacturing matte '   -  ,  into blister copper at the smelter also.  Copper matte is now arriving daily  from the Greenwood and Nelson  smelters, and it is expected, as soon as  the present contract of.the,Trail,smel-      , .*, . , ,v/..,�����..  concern will also send its matte to the  Granby wdrko'for converting.   '  As the ore bins of the smelter were J  full, during the shut down but little  ore was sent out from Phoenix. For  three or four days no ore whatever  was shipped, but now the regular quota  is shipped daily, which will be increased shortly.  NEW MINING- CAMP OF TONAPAH, NEV.  Some  Deal Reported Made For the  Morrison Mine.  PROMISING   DEADWOOD   PROPERTY  Chicago and New York Capitalists to Take  Hold���Pay $5,000 Down, $80,000 In 60  Days, and Balance July 1st.  This week the Morrison mine, a  well known low grade Deadwoodcamp  property, was bonded to New York  and Chicago capitalists for $185,000.  Of this sum $5,000 was paid down,  $80,000 is to be paid in 60 days and  the balance on July 1st next.  The deal was consummated in Spokane by John Hunner, president of  the 'Morrison Mines, Ltd. The purchasers acted upon the advice of John  M.Long, formerly superintendent ol  of the LeRoi mine, and also had the  rei>ort of a New York mining engineer.  It is expected the sale will net piesent  stockholders 15 cents per share.  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  ��� The site of the new 300 foot shaft  for the Snowshoe has been cleared.  The deal between the Brooklyn and  Mother Lode, it is said, is not yet off.  Persistent rumors are afloat that the  Gold. Drop, will resume in the near  future.  This week the Ethiopia, of Long  Lake camp, shipped a car of ore to the  Greenwood smelter.  . It is reported that work will be. resumed on the JeweLmine, Long Lake  camp, in the near future.  Part ol" the new hoisting engine,  two carloads, arrived this week for the  Sunset mine, Deadwood camp, from  the Jenckes Machine Co., of Sher-  brooke, Quebec .-'.  Only a Year Old and Is Said to Have  1600 People.  Every once in a while a new mining camp begins to attract attention,  and hundreds, who are looking to  better their worldly possessions, flock  thither. It is true that most of them  go with but little rfal ideaof the place  they are going to, but they go just the  same.  The  latest attraction of this kind is  the camp of Tonapah,'Nevada, which  although  only a year old,, is  said  to  have a population of  1,600  souls  already.      It is located   in   or near  a  desert,  and about 65 miles  from   the  railway,    Ol course there'll be a railway, but at  present  skanks  mare or  horses aie the only mode of locomotion.    Great reports are sent out in regard to the richness of the camp,  one  of them being that the ore  runs  from  $100 to $1,000 per ton, with  millions  already in sight, the values being gold  and silver.   -These reports have yet to  be authenticated.     It is .also asserted  that hundreds of teams are employed  hauling the ore to the  smelters, and  the local paper at Tonapah is authority for the statement  that the smelters  are not likely to get ahead of the supply of ore.   The nearest railway point  is Reno, Nev.  A number of Boundary   men   have  already started for the new excitement.  Buffet Car on Boundary Railway.  The lor.g looked for and needed buffet car has at last been placed on the  Boundary branch of the C. P. R., going into service last!' Wednesday" for  the first time. It is no longer needful for passengers into or out of the  Boundary to go hungry on the trip.  The car is of the Fournier reclining  chair pattern, and is complete in every  respect. Meals will be served en route  a la carte at reasonable rates, and the  innovation will be welcomed by passengers bound for the Boundary. The  Rossland train will pick up the buffet  car daily at Smelter Junction, and the  return train on the s<ime day will connect with it at Grand Fcuks for the  return trip.  i -*K, THE PHOENIX PIONEER  ��+++++++++.��++��� �� MM �������������������������������������������++��������� ������������<���������������������������;;  I The Canadian Bank of Commerce :;  m'It-  head OFFICE, TORONTO,  Rest, $2,000,000.

The present incumbents aie I). J. Matheson, J. Stir-  rett and J. A. Clark, and they have  been satisfactory to the community, so  far as can be learned. The school of  the city is giowing in importance each  year, and the above pentlemen, if reelected, will undoubtedly do good  woifc for another teim. Beginning  this year, the city school is wholly  within the jurisdiction of the new  trustees, the government simply supplying funds at the tate of ]io per  pupil, which nil! give Phoenix a trifle  shoit of $1400 for 1902.  Jr'"j '  it,', .*.,(..'   ���>.  1 FUTURE IS ENCOURAOINO.  " l M        .1  The figures published in last week's  issue of the Pioneer were a revelation  to even some of the old timers in the  ^Boundary. It was of course, generally known that thet output of the  Boundary in geneial and of Phoenix  in particulur was incieasing by ' leaps  and bounds, but the average .man did  not stop to realize that the increase  over 1900 was close to three hundred  per cent. ��� Such, however, is the case.  When it is looked at without preju-  ��� dice, on its merits alone, it is simply  marvellous that such an- increase  should come in so short a time. When  ' the Pioneer made , this piediction  months ago, some of readers merely  smiled in"tlieir sleeves. They are now  smiling in a, very different manner,  and arc not a little pleased to be able  lb smile in this way.   ���> <   '  / . The capitalists who started in years  ago to develop the resources of the  9'K  --  ;M  m  WW  M 7VI  our loW grade ores in  large volume  r,.that they could achieve success., Jfliey  were not novices m. the^ mining business���they had made it a study foi  .', years.    All they wanted was plenty of  the ore that was first discovered���low  gradeythough it might be, and  they  t   would take chances on getting a profit  (torn it.   Then  they developed and  found the quantity.   All that'was then  needed   was   plenty  of capital and  patience.' They*also found both of  these,'and have so far made a success  ) of the undertakings.       "  No longer is there any doubt about  the Boundary becoming in  the near  ,'future'one of the great mining and  " smelting centres of the continent." 'An  average of over a thousand tons of ore  <' was gotten out  and  shipped  to? the  v smelters during 1901, and nearly that  ' . much   was treated ,at our smelters,  The total for the year 1902  will, certainly at least double this remarkable  figure, if it does not go even higher.  < v ,1 The Pioneer believes that the future  '?; for the Boundary is most encouraging.  i *'There is e^ery. reason .for this belief.  - The copper situation will undoubtedly  ' riglit ' itself,   and . those mines .that  actually  have the ore" will be able to  find a ready  maiket  for it at prices  *'   that will yield a piofit.

It ist generally conceded that the  present city council have administered  the affairs of the city in a salisfactoiy  1   manner, and if any of them will stared  1 for re-election, they will probably be  chosen once more. Up to date uo  names have been mentioned lor the  office of mat or except that of the present  incumbent���G, W. Rumberger. It is  doubtful If a better man could be  secured for the position. Mr." Rum  berger, by his plain,  and business like ways, has earned the  - respect and esteem of all classes, and  while not yearning for further mttnict-  ipal Ixonois, would serve again if it-  quested to do so by the ratepayers.  ?No man has larger interests in Price-  nix? and no 'Irian has freely given so  much of his time to the city's work,  without pay of any kind. > * ;  f     WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS.  The city fatheis believe that the  affairs of the city can be conducted  more economically, and are now proceeding along that line.  About a year ago the Phoenix Hoard  of Trade sent a request lo the C. P. R.  to place a buffet car on the Moundar)  railway.'., The company did not have  one handy then, but stopped the trains  at Grand'Forks long enough to allow  passengers to bieak their lasts. This  week the'recommendation of the Phoe  nix Boaid of Trade goes into effect,  and the buffet car on our railway is a  reality.   , J   ��  The trust is an evil so long as it is  conducted for piivate advantage, but  when conducted for the common weal  is the moral and.economic solution ol  our commercial    problems.

Secy.  ,      , IN REGARD TO THE WINNIPEG  What Mr. Plewnaa Found Tberc In a Recent  Vl��lt  Richard Plewman, managing director of the Winnipeg, recently inspected  the gold copper ore lately found west  of the western dyke on the 100-foot  level in the centre portion of the  property. This new ore body is in  all probability the railway vein, being  in direct*alignment with what is known  as the 35-foot level .vein (main workings) and the vein (No. 2 shaft) at  the extreme west end of the property.  The width of the vein is not yet known.  It has probably been flattened against  the dyke, and here the vein is six to  eight feet wide and no walls yet found.  But the real width of the vein is  probably not great, and this i>oint cannot be determined until the drift gels  further away from the influence of the  dyke.  The vein, Mr. Plewman states as  containing several small seams of clean,  high grade ore, assaying $25 to $40.  About 40 tons oi vein matter have  already been taken out, of which  about 10 tons consist of clean ore.  An average sample- of the lemaining  30 tons gave $12 in gold and 1.63  per cent, copper. It is a self-flu\ing  ore, containing 6.1 per cent,  m  lime.  Drifting westward is being pushed  with energy, and from the No. 2 shaft  on the west end of the vein (40 foot  level) drifting eastward continues in  four feet of clean, solid ore. Between  these mo workings, on what is believed to be the same vein, there exists about 400 feet of unexplored  ground, and should the vein prove  continuous, it would be possible in  time to make connections between the  No. x and No. 2 shafts, ja distance of  about 650 feet, with good shipping  facilities at both ends.

Parker, who has been superintendent of the Dominion Cooper Co.'s  properties in this camp for over a year,  started 011 Monday's train on a trip  that will take him to the Atlantic seaboard, and possibly to the old countiy.  Mis. Parker will leinain in Phoenix  for a moinh or two. Before leaving,  Mr. l'atker told the Pioneer'man that  it was not by any means certain that  the proposed deal for the transfer ol  the Brooklyn (jioup would not eventually take place. If It did, he expected  to tettirn to Phoenix, and begin shipments to the smelter'as soon as possible. It all seemed,to depend on the  price of copper, however. The  present uncertain state of the market  was not encouraging to the making of  new deals, but it was believed that it  would   soon   lecover.  A leading business1 man of Phoenix  recently said to the Pioneer man : "I  believe that within sixty days we will  see a better pi ice prevailing for copper  than we have ever had. I look for the  price to go back to 17 cents and even  higher. There is every leason why  this should be so, for thus far it appears to be the great producers that  that have been the loscis, and as three  or four men control .the bulk of the  output, it will not be long before they  get together and agree not to cut one  another's throats."

Last winter was an unusually long and  severe one, while this season is mild  and pleasant. The sleighing has been  good in and around Phoenix for a  month, and will probably continue for  another month or two, but on the  lower levels the show comes and goes.  Rolla A. Jones, of Spokane, who  had charge of the recent installation ��� I  the water system in Phoenix, has  written the following report on tht  work, showing that the city is now in  good condition to cope with any fne  that is likely to occur here, so far as  the water supply is concerned :  Spokane, Wnali., Doc. 28, 1001.  Mayor (S. W. Hunibvifrer, Phoenix, B.C.  Dear Sir���Ae per your lequest I herewith hand vou my report 011 the flit  lighting capacity of the new Phoenix  water wot ks.  The water nystein contains about tint e  miles of Killvaiiiicvd wiie wound wood  pipe, from eiidit inch down tu two inch j  huuevcr none of the two inch- pipe is  used for fire protection; nothing smaller  than four inch pipe being used to supply  fire hydrants.  I at, first had some misgiving about  wood'pipe, but I subjected thin pipe to  severe tests again mid again and so fur  as I can see it shows no sign of weakness. At one hydrant in the system  there is a static pressure of 3'tf head on  u four inch yet this pipe shows 110 sign  of weakness.  I regard the several modes of supply  as the most important fuctors of safety.  I do not consider any water system veiy  safe with but one source of supply;  but in your system you have thiee  sources of supply as follows: First the  Old Ironsides tank on t'ie south side of  the city, containing 100,000, supplied  with water from tho mines; becond the  New York tank on the north side of the  city, containing 100,000 gallons, supplied  by the pump at Marshall Lake; and  third, the pumping station at Marshall  Lake, with a capacity of 250,000 gallons  per day. Any of these three sources  of tiipply can be used in the entire  system independent of the other two  sources, or any two can be used together,  or all three can be combined and give  the greatest effect.  The two tanks are on the same level,  and the pump can force water against  400 feet head, although the working  pressure on the pump is only 100 feet  head.  Each of these three sources <;an be cut  off or turned on independent of each  other.  At the official test, December 19th,  Bix powerful fire stieains were thrown  continuously for one hour; the sizes of  the nozzles were three l)fj inch, two %  inch and one JjJ inch. They were located  aidifferent points; two of them were on  the highest levels, where the pressure is  naturally the weakest. Even under  under these conditions, these two high-  level ttiearns were good and did not  seem to be weakened much on account  ofthe four other streams.  This test is abundant proof of the  ample capacity and proportion of the  mains.  The highest hydrant in the system  has about 05 feet head and most of ttiem  are fiom 150 to 300 feet head of water.  During the test of six fire streams for  one hour the tanks weru drawn down  only about one-fourth of the water contained in them.  I.will say in conclusion that,  with a  well   equipped    fire    department,   you  should be able to subdue any Are that  may occur in your city. J  ..Respectfully Yours,  R. A. Jones.  up to dale. The mine has recently  suspended work.

For instance,  a business man started in business  here two years ago, appealing to the  general public tor patronage. Although  his store was not ccntially located, and  for lhat reason lie needed advertising  perhaps more than his competitors,  from the time he started till the day  he closed his doors, a week or two ago,  not a line of his advertising appeared  in'.he local paper. Now, it can be  left to the average man of intelligence,  could he expect to make a success ol"  his business ? Advertising might not  have saved him entirely,' but the  chances'are that it would have made  his deficit smaller in the long run.  There is a moral in this little story.
