Stone, representing the Diamoncl Drill Co., of  Spokane, finished a contiact for dia-.  niond dulling for the Minci-Grave.s  syndicate in this ramp, on which lie  had been employed since August.  The chief woik was done on the O'td  Ironsides, Victoria, and Banner claims  During that time lie had driven his  drill some 2,700 feet in the diffeieni  properties, .with results that arc believed to have been highly satisfactory to  the management, although no official  figures are given out.  Since December .Mr. Stone lias been  fulfilling a similar contract at the  Highland mine, near Ainsworth, on  Kootenay lake, wheie he drilled 500  feet, having just completed this piece  of work.  Last Tuesday Mr. Stone arrived  back in I'hoenix, and" began drilling  at tlie Snowshoe, where he expects to  do about 1,000 feet of drilling. On  this property holes will be bored both  in the shaft and in the railway tunnel,  which latter is now in over 500 feet'.  'I he great advantage of diamond  drill prospecting is that the cores can  be assayed, .showing the character of  iqck that is being pcnetiatcd, and indicating the location of the best ore  bodies. As diamond drilling co^ls but  $2.50 to $3.00 per foot, according to  size of contract, it is a comparatively  inexpensive way of locating pay ore.  It is evidently giowing more popular  with mining men each year, as it saves  much useless development, when  properly done.  Last Meeting Out one for ifec Present  '   bets.  The city council held' it regular  weekly session last Wednesday evening. All members being present except Alderman Marshall,, who is at  the coast.

The chief of police was instructed  by the council to close th): gambling  games.  As this is expected to be the last  week in office by the membeis of the  present council, an adjournment' was  taken tiil Satin day night, to close up  any unfinished business lor the fiscal  year.

Millar, made tlie announcement,  that the last service in tlie old log  school house had now been held, and  that services would be held next Sun-  cay in the new church, and he hoped  that there would be a large attendance  at both morning and evening services.  He made s|iccial mention ol the pleasant associations that have developed  in the old school house, and of the  benefit th.it it had been in the building  up of the work here, thanking the  school board for the ircc use of the  building. .

A few days ago a g*iod strike of ore  was made in the north dnft of the 250  toot level of the Hi ookljn in a place  where heretofore no ore had been, encountered. Splendid ore is also being  found in the Stemwinder,and the local  officials ofthe company are consequently feeling quite pleased at the results  of work thus far.  A laise has been started in the  south drift of the 250-foot level of the  Brooklyn to the r 50-foot ,levcl, and  thence to the surface, about 70 feet,  as the hill'slants at thai point. The  men at work in the raise aie up about  30 feet. When completed the raise  will be used as an air shaft and also as  an ore shutc.  How Towus In Kootenay And Boundary Stand  in This Respect.

Last week the smelter produced  13S tons of matte.   ,  No decision has yet been arrived at  as to where the new smelter of the Dominion Copper Co. will be located, except that it will probably be near the  Boundary line, so that Republic- ores  can be readily brought in.  The annual meetings of the several  companies organized by the Miner-  Graves syndicate, will be held shortly.  They-will doubtless, be of more than-  ordinary interest, as groat progress has  been make in the last "12 months.  The reports are now being prepared.  six feet of fine chalcopvnte in the  Hlue Hell, Summit camp, as given last  week in the I'ioneer, proves to have  been all tint was expected. This  week Manager John Doisev took 500  pounds of the oie to the Granby smelter  at Grand Forks, and was so well  pleased with tne icturns that lie has  decided to equip the pioperty with  machmeiy for more expeditious development. He staited yesterday, foi  Chicago, wheie the large shaieholdeis  live, and expects to lettirn in two 01  thiee weeks with all arrangements perfected loi w01 king the pioperty on a  larger scale.  Patrick Welch, the wealthy railway  contractor, who is interested in the  adjoining claim, the Mountain View,  was in the Boundary last week -.from  Mosier, Oregon, where he has a railway contract. . He. was so favorably  impressed with the Blue Bell that he  at once bought in to the tune of 50,-  000 shares. The property, in connection with the J. S., is under bond lor  $67,000 to tlie Lake Shore and 15. C.  Copper Mining & Dev. Co., recently j  organized by Mr. Dorsey in Chicago.!  About 20 tons of rich ore are on  the dump of the'-Blue Bell, and the j  shaft is down 35 feet or more. Iiidi- i  cations are extremely favorable  Nbllce to Ifockcy Players.

Last Tuesday a contract was awarded to J. Gillis lor tlie extension ot the  tunnel on ihc Rawliide, one of the six  propci ties . owned hy the Dominion  Copper Co'. Mr. Gillis was the successful one out of eight or ten bidders,  and he immediately started at work  the next day, running double shifts.  The Raw hide tunnel is now into  the hill about 500 teet, and has been  driven to crosscut the oie 'body.  When 100 leet of work was done last  year, it was thought ore would be -  reached before the runtrat't had. ibecii  fuifilled. However, it is now lhe intention 10 give the property a tlior-,  ough prospecting, and the present con ���  tract has been let in 50 loot sections.  Probably some drifting will be undertaken before long. (  Since the woik on the property was  done a year ago, the so-called railway  tunnel on the Snowshoe, not far from  the adjoining Rawhide line, was start- ,  ed, and several hundred feet ot work,  has been done, a large part of which  is in ore ot a good quality. The Rawhide development will probably prove  equally succcsslul.

The case was that of Kettle  River Mines, Ltd. vs. Blcasdell ct al.  In substance it is that if one buys  shares at, say 10 cents each*, on certificates which represent them to be of  a par value of $1 each "paid up"1 direct  from the company, he must pay the  difference between the 10 cents and the  par value, because he knew at the time  lie bought that he .had not paid their  face value. If however, the same  shares were bought in the open market  on the same certificates and . at the  same price, the purchaser is not responsible for the payment ofthe difference,  as he is entitled to rely on the com,-  pany's statement in the certificates that  the shares are paid tip and 'non-assessable.   r __1_  Wtwt a Uve New ipiper Can Do.  A live ncwspa|)er is an important  factor in the upbuilding of any town or  district, especially in a mining camp.  The Cranbrook Herald, speaking of  the work done by country newspapers,  hays:  "They stand week in and week out,  always ready to assist and-help, in  business, in personal ambition, and in  promoting the welfare of the community. They may receive their ic-  . ward. As a rule, they do. Yet, there  are always a few individuals who have  nothing for a paper but criticism. The  columns of any newspaper show the  progress of the town, but never any  backward movement. It preaches  hope and prosperity and always has an  abiding faith in the people and the  community."  U-~ *<  iV-k  .  .*  Thinks Thcv Are Oood Paper*.  Two of the best papers that come to  this office arc the Pioneer, of Phoenix,  and the Lardeau Eagle, of Ferguson,  'l'ficse two papers, published in the  , centers of two rich districts, are spreading the gospel of truth about their respective territories in a manner that  fill do a world of good.

To produce the ore that  will be used in these five smelters will  give steady employment to 2,5,00 men,-  none of whom will receive less than  $2.50 a dA), and' the average will be  $3 a daj. These men will work every  day in the year, and will earn $7,500  .1 da\, or or $225,00 a month, $2,700,-  000 a j ear.. 'The five smelters will  !-tvc steady employment to 1500  smeltermen, railwaymen, coal miners  and coke burners, who will average  $2.50 a day. This means a futher  disbursement in wages of $3750 a day,  or $112,500 a month, or $1,350,000  .1 v ear. Combined, the mining and  smelting of 2300 tons of ore in south-'  tastern British Columbia means 'an  annual disbursement of $4,000,000 in  wages alone, the bulk of which is spent  in southeastern British Columbia. On  the other hand, suppose the 2500 tons  of ore mined in southeastern British  Columbia was smelted at North port  and Tacoma and Omaha and Everett  and other points in the United States,  what would be the loss to southeastern  British Columbia?       ...������.������..>..
