'��� ! :;'i ������-���.: ���'���'"  mmM  Possibly no mine in Summit camp'  is attracting more attention today; than  is the Oiq Denoro, and from an in4  spection made this week Ijy a representative bt" tlie Pioneer, the property  seems to justify all that is said about if,  The Oro Denoro, is located about  four miles from Phoenix by traij-Vri'd  is on the Phoenix spur of the C/P. R.,  being but two miles Irom Eholt. The  railway track runs directly thrciug-i the  property, and as will be 'remembered)'  the graders uncovered.a rich ledge 01  ore in blasting out the right-of-wiiy. ,_-,:.  Neil Cochrane, the superintendent  of the Oro Denoro, showed the Pioneer man over the property, and -explained the plan of development.' The  mine has about 750' feet of' development work done, including' a shait  nearly 300 feet deep,; a drift of as much  more, and three tunnels. Two.06.  these tunnels are now being driven and  eventually working?, will be connected.  In the No. 2 tunnel the workmen are  now in some 75 leet, and are daily,  taking out tons of-fine ore, that-will,  run .irom' 7 ,to 15 per cent coppery besides! some gold .and. silver .vaiues.  This is being sorted, .and \vh2ti-: shipr  merits begin, it is expected to continue  them regularly. ,. The carload' shipped  some weeks ago to the Trail smelter  netted the owners $15 per ton.      ry'c''  The, No. 2 tunnel,which is inteiid-  c'd to'fie tbe.,.main Avofking :tuttrii-r;;is  just coming:iiuo~sylid;.pie,.the-^eifee  lace, now beingin a fine chalcopv.rite,  most pleasing to nten, superintendent  and stockholders. There is already  an immense, ore body in sight in the  different workings, and it w.ould be  difficult indeed to estimate the probable value.    It is certainly ve:-y high.  The Oro Uenorois owned by" the  King Mining Co., having 2,000,000  dollar shares. ; Ross Thompson and  Smith Curtis of Rossland, are two of  the largest stockholders, Mr. Cochrane  also owning a considerable interest.  The proj-eity is equipped with an air  compressor, hoist, etc., has a townsite  that bids fair to be heard from, and it  will doubtless become one of the bin  shippers of the Boundary before long.  .W. Coleman, of Trail, Constable D.J.  Darraugh, ot Phoeni.*., is chiei license  inspector.  TRUCK TIE' im  Electric Lighting Progress.  Contractor Donald has completed  the work of setting the nearly 500 35-  foot poles for e-ectiic lighting purposes  in Crten woodland also onthe line to  1'hoenix. TlJe^-^infsny is how putting up the''35, 40; 4s))and: 50 foot  poles inljoth Greenw-c>oa and Phoenix,  and in the former^'town��������� hiis already  begun stringing the wires. The two  large -boilers have been set and thc  dynamo has arrived. The Greenwood  Electric Co.' is* pushing things as rapidly as possible, and it is said will be  turning on lights in both Greenwood  and Phoenix in about two week's time.  Ore Body Encountered in the  Mountain View  WINNIPEG Mm.IS NOW SHIPPING  Many  buildings  are  be'ng   wired for  light1*,.especially, those now under construction. The pole line in Phoenix  runs ii]) Dominion avenue to LJhoenix  street, thence up to the, lirobklyn and  Stem winder mines, and over First  street to Old Ironsides avenue. >'  Lumber Yards for Phoenix.  A. R.Tillman, of the McRae sawmill, a couple of miles from town, was  here Thursday, and stated that Mr.  McRae would shortly place a stock of  lumber in Phoenix-.', He says the mill  is now running steadily turning, out  rough lumber,.rustic, ship-lap, flooring,  etc. Hand shavedv shingles are also  furnished.  It is said that the Yale-Columbia  Lumber Co. and Jay-P. Graves are  both intending to establish, lumber  yards here as soon as the track is laid  to Phoenix, in anticipation of the  enormous demand sure to exist here  in the. spring and'.siimmer.

Thursday afternoon representatives  of nearly every hotel in Phoenix met  at the Butte and formed themselves  into an organisation called the Phoenix  Licensed Victuallers' Association.  Temporary officers were chosen as  follows:, President, W. Twist; secrej-  tii.tyji.J2. -��� AV.

The object of  the association is the mutual good of  its; "inembeis. Constable i). J. Darraugh was unanimously indorsed as an  officer. ���.   y  IL  Rails Laid to Midway.  On Tuesday last the laying of steel  on the Boundary railway was completed to the depot site at Midway, a distance of 99 miles, exclusive of switchbacks over the Bull Dog tunnel, from  West Robson. This finishes'the last  nine miles of the first section of this  road. It is not expected that passenger trains will be run to Midway for  the present, as that nine miles, has not  been ballasted nor officially inspected,  but freight cars will be delivered there  whenever there is demand for it.  Midway is jubilant at getting railway  connections at last. i  Will Baiid a $2,593 Church.  Among the many new structures  planed for Phoenix for next spring is a  Presbyterian ��� ..church to cost about  $2,500. The organization is growing,  and before long steps will be taken to  provide for the new church home.  The proposed building, it is intended,  will not only be commodious enouglj  to serve its purpose for several years,  but will be a credit to the city and to  the denomination that" will.build it���a  denomination by the way, that is a pioi-  neer in missionary work.   .  New License Commissioners.  The terms of all license commissioners expired on the .31st of last  December. This weeek's B.C. Gazette  contains the list of new appointments.  Those for the Boundary Creek District  are J, C. McNicol, of Midway, and T.  For the Phoenix Hospital.  Dr. G. S. Gordon, who has interested himself in the plan to build a hospital in Phoenix, fells encouraged, with  the success being-met with as the matter is brought to the attention of those  most interested. The.majority of the  companies owning mines in this local?  ity have signified a willingness to assist^  ���the project, and doubtless all will falj'  in line when they understand the mat?  tcr. It is believed thatit can soon be  given tangible shape and assume a  definite form.  In anotjier week the building to be  occupied by the Eastern Townships  Bank should be ready for use.

'  Word reached town last night, that  the force of men working on the.'Moun-  tuin Vievr, adjoining the B.C. mine, in  Summit camp, had made a fine strike  on that promising propei ty.. Theorig-  work on the Mountain View consisted  of a 40-fqbt shaft, with.a drift of 28  feet,'whi :h had cut the ledge for 10  feet. ��� A tunnel'was then started about  85 feet south .of the shaft, to crosscut  the ledge. When, t! e mine s had1 got-1  ten in 56 feet, last 'lnursday, the charr  acter .of the rock changed and they are  now breaking into fine copper ore, the  entire face of the tunnel being in  chalcopyrite. The force of men has  been increased and work recommenced  in the shaft. ...  On his trip to Summit camp this  week, the Pioneer man visited the  Mountain View, and was shown over  the property by Manager jjorseyr  The'.'work thus far by the" company  has been done in a business-like manner, and the indications are that the  property will- turn out to be a valuable  one. ..��� ,v  '    Winnipeg is Shipping. ���'  For some ,time past the Winnipeg  mine, in We lingtoh camp, has been  trying to get cars to begin ore ship:  meiits, and yesterday the first of these  was loaded for the Trail smelter. I;t'  is understood that considerable ore will  be sent out in this . way. At present  lhe*tiack,is at Hartford.Junction, and  the;ore is' hauled in sleighs to the'tracky  a distance of about a.mile. ;';' pty.  Machinery for flsriford. ���  David Evans, manager of the Hart>  ford.claim, two miles from Phoenix^  .was in town Thursday; and states that  the work is proceeding in good shape,  the shalt beihg now down about 65  feet, yit has been decided to equip  the property with machinery,, which  will be done as soon as possible." The  owners, of the property, are Messrs-.  IMiiler, Tripp, MacLoughiiri, Galer  and Jones of Grand Forks, and it s  their intention to make a = mine of the  Hartford.  In Boundary Mines.  A shaft will be sunk 100 feet on the  Butcher  Boy in Deadwood camp.  The Buchkorn machinery, in Dead-  wood camp, was- started this week.  It is said that 'the force on the.  Mother Lode will be-largely increased  in a short time. '���'��� i  The stamp mill of the Granite and  Banner claim in Camp McKinney,:  has been seized by the sheriff on five  writs. ,.  The Morrison Mining Co., whose  property is"^UJ Deadwood camp, is  being- reorganized with a capital of  $1,500,000.  Yesterday the B.

A meeting of the directors of the  Brandon-& Golden Crown Mining Cos  is to be-held'in Greenwood next Mon-  day.-' ' ��� -~      '������������������-    *   ������"      ���-  The work of installing the machinery for the War Eagle is- now in an  advanced stage. The boiler has been  bricked in, the sinokestack was placed  in position yesterday and the conv  pressor ought to be at work in another  week. This will mean more men employed on the property.  Frank Robbins returned from the  North Star mine', in'East Kootenay,  on Wednesday, and reports another  great strike of galena in this gigantic  mine���the third in a short time. The  rails on the North Star branch, 27  miles long, are about all laid, and shipments to the Trail smelter are expected to'begin soon.  Greenwood Typographical Uaion.  Last Sunday Greenwood Typographical Union,   No.   35S, was   organized,  having 18  No.  members  , was  to start off with.  The officers chosen were: J. W. Giier,  president; J. D.

Phoenix Thursday.  -Oh his way over from Neison, he  walked through the Bull Dog. tunnel,  and had 20 minutes to wait for the  train, which went over the switchbacks.  W.J. Sandry of Phoenix, who -.was  challenged through the columns -of the.  Pioneer last week by Jim Wood, of  Greenwood, to a wrestling or boxing  match, accepted the challenge and  was to meet his opponent last night  (Friday), as the Pioneer went to press.  Quite a number from Phoenix went  down. ���'���������:  Some idea of the trade in Phoenix  may be had when it is known that  the Hunter-Kehdrick Co. had seven  cars of goods at Grand Forks at one  time, .and the Wynkoops-Stevens Trading Co. were similarly, situated. Morrin :,& Thompson are also constantly .  adding to their stock in carload lots,  to say nothing "of the many smaller  concerns.  Thomas -J. Sims, of Nelson, was a  visitor to Phoenix this week. He is  the proprietor of the concern which  makes the famous Royal Seal and other  cigars, so largely sold in.the Boundary.  During-the last year he made and sent  out 900,000 cigars, and now employs  20 hands constantly. He believes  only.in putting out good goods and is  consequently meeting with, gratifying  success.

Phoenix; B. C.  . If all the railway lines and branches  are built in the Boundary within the  next ten years, of which notice has  recently been given of the intention to  apply for charters, this entire section  will be thoroughly gridironed with railway tracks, and no one need walk into  or out of the country. For years there  was spirited competition between D.C  Corbin and the C. P..R. to get into  this section with the iron horse. It is  the general belief that, but for the  opposition of the C. P. R. the Boundary would have had a railway two or  three years ago. However, the C.P.R.  has finally fulfilled its promises, and is  fust beginning to reap a rich harvest for  the four or five millions expended.  Now there are others still anxious to  tap the rich Boundary with railway  lines, and if they are willing to do this  without -bonus of any kind, it is difficult to see why they should not be  given this privilege. It seems almost  ceitain that there will be railway com-  petition'in the Boundary in the com-  paritively near future. ' If it will serve  to bring down the extortionate lates  being charged by the C. P. R. into  this section, it will certainly be accorded a warm welcome wherever it may  reach. -_, That the fine Italian hand 01  James J. Hill or the Great Northen is  behind some of the proposed new lines,  is a foregone conclusion. And no one  knows better how to bring the C.P.R.  to time than this same Jim Hill. The  C. P. R. is now endeavoring to pay  ��� .or the new railway in altogether too  short a time.  The Phoenix Pioneer,  ,   .       ISSUED ON SATURDAY BY THE  HONKEltPtJBI,lSHING CO.  At PftOENIX B. C.  VI. B.

PROSPECTIVE TELEPHONE EXTENSION.  .Application 'is about to be made to  the piovincial   legislature for a charter  Jiy the. Western  Telephone & Telegraph Co., for the purpose of building  ���a   telephone  litre  through  from  the  Boundary to Vancouver.    At present  ' there is a gap of but 280 miles between  the terminus'of the present  lines and  ihe coast, and no insuperable  difficulties are likely  to be encountered,  i>  the .line  runs, as, proposed, through  the Similkameen; valley to the main  line of the C.P.R.; and thence to the  ���coast.  There are a number of reasons why  is is desirable that the charter should  ���be gianted and the line, be built at  once.    One of the objects of the ' railway line through' Southern   Yale, and  thence to the coast,   is to bring  this  section closer to the trade headquart1  .���ers of the province.    A first-class  telephone line over the 'route  indicated,  ���&u-.:h as is'prom'scd,   would assist ma-  tteiunllv  in  accomplishing  this.    The  * telegraph is,desirable for many kinds  rfjf business,. but tor  others,   nothing  ran take the place of a telephone  line  ���v.ith a metallic circuit  When . the matter comes up for  ���action, it is to be hoped that coast as!  well -as inland members will support;  ���the application f<r a charter. It is to I  ithe interest of both sections that it:  .-feliould be .granted. j  ENFORCING SANITARY LAWS.  Eve/y new and growing community  finds-it necessary, sooner or later in  its early history, to have attention-called to the sanitary regulations in force  throughout the piovince. While there  is hardly an individual but that will  readily grant thc wisdom ot such laws,  it is easy in all places to find those  who exercise their ingenuity tor a  time in evading those regulations.  Typhoid fever epidemics ���' arise ifom  just such conditions, and^aie due tt.  laxity in their eniorcement. '*  Phoenix has been growing very rapidly in the last few months, and this  important matter may have been overlooked' to some extent._ Mr. I), j.  Darraugh, the resident provincial  constable, states that hereafter he will  see that the provisions of the health  act are carried out. Violations of tht  act are subject to the extreme penalty  of a fine of $100 and imprisonment  for six months, in the discretion of the  justices of the peace.  This is not a pleasant matter for the  Pioneer to call attention to, and this  paper only does it for the well being o.  the place. All good citizens will commend Mr. Darraugh "for'thc stand he  is taking, and will aid him in every way.  Let each householder and business  man do his part, and it will be a simple matter and not burdensome to any.  This note of warning is not sounded  because there is any real danger at  present, but to pieclude the possibility  of such in the future, and we feel sure  that those who have' the real good ol  Phoenix at heart will sav Amen.

No  camp, outside of Rossland, in British  Columbia, can make a like showing.  Political pyrotecni'cs are now on the  bill of fare almost daily in the legislative halls at Victoria. Joe Martin  said he had a rod in pickle tfor thc  present government, and he is making  the lact apparent. So far, however,  he has not accomplished much by his  intermittent bombardment.  Thc provincial government is about  to pay the the C. P. R. $4,000 per  mile, or thereabouts, lor building 'the  Boundary railway, instead of a land  grant of 25,000 acres per mile. As  thc road -does not run thiough an  agricultural section, and the desnable  land is aheady taken up, it looks like  a thriity move on thepaitofthe C.P.R.  But where is the benefit to the province?

Thc  hopes of several (few townsite owners,  in the immediate vicinity are largely  built on the outlook for the H. (^.  mine, and from appearances they have  a good foundation.  The property now has .jo men on  the payroll, but this force will undoubtedly be doubled in a compari-  tively shoit time alter steady 'shipments  are started.  Last week Mr. S. F. l'arrish, M.E.,  a Colorado mining engineer of wide  "t! experience, arrived at the property,  *���; and" assumed charge ns general niana-  + ;ger. He expressed himself as well  "��j pleased with the nature of the dcvcl-  ��� j opment. thus far done.. A large payment was due on the 3d".!of this month  ON'the purchase price, which, it is understood, was promptly met.   . -'"  Tlie Greenwood  Electric Company  !  j  ���  t  ���t  ���4-M-+*-f++++++4--H--f-M-*��--f ���*>���������-������  AT THE FAMOUS BX.  Pioneer Man Visits GreatSum-  mit Camp Mine  THE  SKIPPING   ERA  INAUGURATED  Property ii��s. About 2,590 Feet of Develop*  neat Work. Dow on It Thus Far-Big  Paya-ent Made.  "We have here the biggest mining  ���proposition in British Columbia, tor  the amount of work dcirie," said John  <J.. Scrafford, superintendet ot the'B.C.  . .mine in Summit camp, to a representative of the l'ioneer, this week, who  visited the property for the purpose 01  seeing for himself the mine that had  iii ready made that camp well known.  Alter a visit to the lotver workings 01  the property, accompanied by the affa-  lile supcrintedent, the Pioneer nian  cdid.not dispute the assertion, for there  certainly seems to be no reason to  doubt that it will prove to be a large  (dividend payer for years. Mr. Scrai-  lord has been with the property for  two years, and the business-like way  in which the the mine has been developed and brought to the shipping stage,  is due largely to his excellent juug-  ment.  Thus far the 13. C. has had approximately 2500 teet 01 development work  done on it.'in shaits, driits, ^crosscuts,  tunnels and winzes. Up to this time  a depth of 2*50 leet has been obtained  and immen^areas 01 splendid copper  ore blocked out, On the dumps there  i>,re now thousands and thousands 01  tons of ore, that will, run from .15 to  20 i>er cent in copj*er, and this has all  l-een taken out in the course of development only. The C. P. R. tracks  are laid to the ore dumps and efforts,  herctoioie liuitless, to get cars for:|  shipping pur'-oses, are likely to be  <;ro\vneu with su.ice.ss at last, as they  were definitely promised this week.  The freight blocade oil the new Boundary railway, and the big demand all  over the C. 1'. R. lines, has made' it  next to impossible to secure the lolling  -stock beiore this.  Ore from the 15. C. mine for months  to come is destined lor the I rail smelter, which concern has a contract with  the owners lor many thousand tons.  In fact, it is considered to be the  largest ore contract yet made with any  mine in the Boundary country.  ���; History of thc Property.  The B. C. mine was located in  1893, when the entire Boundary was  virtually a trackless waste. A year  later it was .relocated, and up to the  time of its sale a year ago by John  JCehoe and partners, it was more or  less steadily developed aiid the immense ore bodies explored. The  formers owners are said to have paid  $60,000 for the B. C, and it is well  kkpwn that in January, 1899, it was  sold to Montreal capitalists lor $310,-  ooo,/.l is amount rq>iesenting the  estimateu value of the ore then in  sight. The sale was negotiated by  MeCuaig, Rykert & Co., of Montreal.  James Ross, of Montreal, owns a six-  tenths interest in the property, and  Messrs. MeCuaig and Rykert are also  heavily interested.  Development, after the pale, was  steadily continued, and the dumps ol  rich copper rock, grew bigger each  month. A three drill compressor  plant was installed with hoist .\nd  pumps, and has, of course, materially  assisted development. Now, however,,  a larger hoist, capable of handling ore  in-immense epiantities from the 1000-  foot level has been purchased' and is  on the ground. A dynamo for lighting the mine and buildings is also at  the property ready'fdr installment.  .The B. C. mine is undouhtedly the  'banner property lot Sjimmit camp. Ic  has had iTiore Work done on it, has a  better showing and  the ore  thus Jar  ���piled up is of a higher; average^grade  ���than other properties in that locality.  Its  owneis can,   therefore,   look  for-.  Are now prepared to under-  . take the installing of lights on  the premises of intending con-  i sinners. Before- any building  is connected to the Company's  mains, thc wiring .will have to  be inspected by an.; officer o.'  the Company.
