Phoenix camp has at lest reached  the stage where over a thousand tons  of goldcop|>er ore are sent 'from the  mines to the Mnelter, 29 miles distant,  every day. Between daylight and  dark each day two trains, each of 17  ore cars.each car containing about 30  tons of ote, are shipped down the hill  to the Granby reduction works at  Grand Foiks. In order not to ship  Sundays, on Saturdays and Mondays  an extra trajn is dispatched.  This is at the rate of 365,000 tons  per year, or neirly equalling the total  output of of the Boundary for 1901.  In the course of |)erhaps a week or  two the rate of shipping from the  Granby mines^ will be increased to at  least thiee trains or 1,500 tons each  24 hours, or at the annual rate of  nearly 500,000 tons. This increase  will be necessitated by the fact that  the finishing touches to the two new  furnaces at the smelter are now being  put on, and very shortly they will be  blown in, requiring about 1,500 tons  of ore daily to keep them running.  This will make four furnaces in use  by the Granby smelter, each with a  guaranteed capacity of 250 tons each  24 hours. ^uch, hpwever, is the admirable' self fluxing character of the  ores that each furnace, ~ qndef the  careful management of SuperintftuJiOt'  Hodges, is handling upwards" of 375  tons of ore each day.  Qradiaily lacreaiiaf Mlac Force. "  Thus lar there has been no great  increase in the -number of men employed at the Granby mines, but in a'  short time more men will be put on,  gradually. While the smelter was  closed do\vn>for a week, to permit connecting the blowers (or the two new  furnaces, the mine force was kept at  about the usual number of men.; Thus  a large, reserve of ore was accumulated  in the ore bunkers, stbpes^and open  quarries,.which,is now being shipped.

The Phoenix Hockey Club took a  full train load of enthusists to Grand  Forks last Saturday night to > witness  the contest there with the Smelter  City's puck chasers.

Niles,  Charles Flood and O. N. Galer; time  keepers, W. X. McDonald and Mr.  McMordic.  The game started off with a rush,  Phoenix pressing Grand Forks hard  and giving Cochrane all he "could  handle in goal. Finally, after fifteen  minutes hard play, McArthur scored  the first goal for Phoenix. Shortly  after this both sides seemed ao forget  that hockey was the game they started^  to play, and the pme developed into  a regular Ilqneybroqk. Fair.' The first  .naif ended 1^=0, in ftvpr of Phoenix.  Soon after the start of the second half,  McQueen broke away from the bunch  and eluding the Phoenix defence made  the score one all. The excitement Ws  intense and for a' few minutes one  would have thought that the whole ot  Grand Forks was playing the game,  as the ice 'became black with spectators  crowding upon it     ��� .~  From this:/on Referee Bonter had  his hands full in keeping the players in  order,; as the Phoenix boys were as  determined to win as the Grand Forks  boy�� rwereV On a pass'from-'Brown,  Baker ��� scored .the - ne\t, * |for Grand  Forks, making the" score, Grand Forks  2, Phoenix i.f'The P.noenix boys  then got down to work and soon  evened the score; and with but three  quarters of a -minute to" play Monk  once more shot the-rubber disk past  Cochrane, and the Pay Roll City boys  won a hard fought match by a score of  3 to 2.

' The system of handling the surface  oie in the Knob Hill, mine has been  gotten down ��� to a pretty fine point,  from an economical standpoint. Raises  Have been made from the main tunnel  of the Knpb'Hill mine to the open pit  or quarry, aVd after being broken don n  the ore is sent down these raises or  shafts, and handled expeditiously on  the double track railway of the tunnel.  In order to save handling the ore  on the surface, as fast as the advance  is made into the hill, a raise is made'  to connect from "the" tunnel. Thus six  of these raises have- thus' far'-been  made, the last one5 being conipleted  Wednesday evening of this \ve"ek.:  4 As winter came on/if'-was decided  to'run a'runnel into the face of-the  glory hole ore body, so that, -no matter  how severe the weather, the work' of  getting out ore from this >part of ��� the  mine might not be delayed-.

This means  that our school board! will meet some  time next week for this purpose. >  The change in management of the  schools of the city is expected to entail some more work on' the city  officials, as in future'all accounts, including the salaries of the teachers,  will be paid by the city clerk on  vouchers issued by 'the trustees. A  separate set of books ,will probably be  commenced at the city hall to~fiandle  the affairs of the schools.  ii i; : ��� BOUNDARY MWlNQ' NOTfeSi  Owing to the lack of water at the.  No. 7 mine, Central: camp, one shift  was recently laid off temporarily.  It is estimated that the new Granby converter will produce about 1,300  toils of blister copper per month. ���  ���Rapid'work is being done in the installing of tlie large' hoisting engine  recently received at the Sunset mine;  Deadwood camp: '  .The completion of the' new furnace  for the Greenwood smelter is said to  have' been delayed hy the non-arrival  of some structural steel from Pittsburg.  .. The first car, load of 95 per cent  blister copper, made at the new Granby converter, consisting of 30 tons,  was sent .east to the refinery from  Grand Forks last Saturday.. .  The latest report,, in regard tp starting, the third furnace at the Granby.  smelter, is that it will probably take  place about the \o\\\.of February,.vth.e  fourth to be blown in a little later., ,, ,  Since connections have been made  in the new timber shaft on the Qld  IronsideSj a few days, ago,  v<ork is he-  Survey Party at Midway.  The party of V., V. & E. surveyors,  locating the Phoenix spur have moved  camp into Midway, says the Midway  Advance, and are now engaged in  locating the line from a point a few  miles up Boundary creek down to the  town and connecting it with the main  line, which is located west of Midway  as far -as' Orpyille. It is not yet  definitely known [at just what .point,, in  Midway the spun line to Phoenix will  connect with the; main line, but it will  be somewhere between the eastern  boundary of the town and the  mill. ''..'.���  Noble   Binns,   of Trail,   of   the '  firm of Clark & Binns, with houses in  Trail and Phoenix, is a visitor to the  city this week.'   He stated that, while  times were quiet now in Trail,  owing    ;  to the fact''that*1 the Trail  smelter  is ���  closed for" enlargements and repairs,  (he outlook for the future oi the smelter town' never Jook'ed brighter^ and  .consequently for this entire section. In  a-few days the work of installing the  ;  new 1,000 tons per day rock crusher  t  ��r^Hpe completed, which! will' 'enable 5 >  the smelter management -to���handle-a-  jnuch'lafger amount of ore each day  than heretofore:!   Asian increased .ton*. <  nage'of ore is expected from .Rossland  soon,- this crusher will be worked .to ,  its full capacity.  Mr. Binns was enthusiastic in  rer  gard to the new refinery which  is i\ovt>   ,  being erected ..at the j smelter.    When  completed it will have cost the Can- ,  adiatf;Smelting Works about $60,000,  and>*will-' be a'great boon to the mine  : - -. 1 * 1 ~  owners of the Kootenays. . The refinery; is being built on a hew plan,,'  from new patents, that-have never.been  tried, before J on a large; scale, the  patentee being here himself from New  York,' to superintend, its erection..  Before it was decided to erect it, however, Manager Aldridge visited the  east and secured-the opinions of .experts iaUheTefiningibusinessas. to its  practicability-, and;, decided that it,-was  well adapted to the work mapped, out  for it in 'Trail��~ .,  As a refinery of the ordinary kind  costs something like $200,000 or more  to erect, if the new Trail refinery is a  success, as.there seems tp be no doubt,  it will be a^spjendid thing for die mine  owners of British Columbia, and will  save them a good many thousand dollars each year. It is anticipated that  the refinery willbe ready for operation  some, time in May or June.! The  smelter itself is expected to be blown  in again today or early next week.  ���Mr._ Binns was recently elected  mayor of ,the^ city/ of Trail, by acclamation.

Phoenix1 is probably in the best position financially of any of the newly  incorporated cities of the province.  -1 ii  > ,/A  ���v  H  <Jf is not such a long time since the  'people of  Phoenix were-'looking forward to the date when the ore shipments from this camp would' beat the  rate of* a round  thousand tons each,  twenty-four hours. , Less "than   two ^     (  '    yearsago it was thought, when the day Heretofore ire  have  came that this amount; of ore was the        t''""    v   daily output of Phoenix, it would be a  phenomenal record.   The day is now  here. ' '  "���Beginning late last week the Granby  Co' inaugurated the thousand tons per  > 'day^rate.   Every   twenty-four   hours  two trains of 17 cars each, are sent  down the hill to the company's smelter,  '\each car containing an average of 30  tons of ore.   This will be the regular  5,rate'of shipping hereafter, with the ex-;  1 7ception that an'extra train willJbe sent  '   out each Saturday and1 Monday, (in  , order not to have to ship on < Sunday.  I -' Nor is'this all/ Inside of a month,  �� and probably much sooner, the ship-  < mentsVill be still further increased  to at least 1,500 tons per day, or three  trains of 17, cars each'.    1 his' will -be  necessitated as soon^as the two new  \ furnaces are in full operation, and to  keep the capacious r maw iof the four  furnaces well   filled all * the time, at  least this amount of ore must be sent  out every day.       '  This'ore is all carried over the C.P  \ R;, which company is beginning to get  ' pretty good' interest on'the cost of  building   the -Boundary 'railway���at  least on this'end of the line.   The  /.railway' company^is now getting $r.,~  000" per day "for freight from the Gran-  ; by Co* alone, accordihg to reports, and  as the tonnage'increases, the lailway  company's income 'will also increase.  This would pay a moderate rate of interest on the cost of tbe entire Boun-  'dary branch-of-the C- P. R-.\    "  ness. These wcie the Vernon & Nelson,  the Columbia and ihe Boundary  Creek lines. In a short time the latter  dropped out, being absorbed by the  Columbia. Then it was a war to the  bittei finish between the V. & N. and  and the Columbia. The V. & N. having the longest purse, came out Victorious,'and now has the field to itself.  In the mealime, however, all three  companies were steadily losing money.  Now, then, the V. & N. have raised  rates somewhat, to a reasonable Figure,  and objection is made.   This is but  natural, for no one likes  to have the  price of  any   commodity increased,  whether it be bacon and beans or telephones.   As a matter of fait, the rates  now are not unreasonablt���even if the  company has a monopoly.   It is much  more expensive to constiuct and main  tain lines in this mountainous section,    , rrosjicmy  and the company has invested many good advertising,  thousands of dollars.    Added  to this  it isgiving a good service, on long  short lines,' at a tate lower than  similai localities.  '  The Pioneer has'never been accused  of having any special love for the Ver  non & NelsrJh Telephone Co., but  does believe in giving the devil his due  had telephone  service at less, than ccsl. How long  would any man.who reads these lines  remain in business on such a basis ?  We are now getting a really better  service than when there was competition, and we are paying a little more  for it. But the difference is north  more than it costs the average business  man.  \ WHAT EDITORS SAY |  Dunsmuir is out with an appeal to  the i>cople. 'J hat won't "save him.���  Cranbrook Herald.

You cannot make a prosperous season by sitting back in a dark corner  and complajninn of the prospects. It  takes both energy and effort to gain  the success you most desire.  There is no prosperity |wssible  without intelligent advertising. The  man who knows how to make pros  perity by pushing to a definite end for  the sake of that prosperity will seldom  be disappointed.  If a merchant realises the great value  to be obtained from advertising he will  not go about it in any hall-hearted  manner. It should be his plan to be  so peisistent, energetic and enthusiastic  that he will be able to convince himself by the results of his effort that the  study he has given the mattei was  well worth while.

It is a question whether or not the  ledge is a fissure vein or not, though  it appears to be on the .surface. Irrespective of indications all the ground  for miies around is staked out, though  what there is there is unknown.  At the present rate of leaving tliere  will be but few miners left in the camp.  The sickness affects the miners alone,  and is probably caused by the diyness  ol the mine. .Three miners died the  day the letter was written. The letter  further states that there is some talk of  the company putting in a mill on the  property, and il that is done there will  be no immediate development woik  done on the property.  l'HOVl.N'CIAL   BEVESU  '    KKK).'
