We solicit your patronage*  The second ordinary genera! meeting of die Snowshoe Gold and Copper  Mine!;, Ltd., owning and operating the  Snowshoe mine in this camp, v���is held  at the company's offices, in London,  .England, on the 31st of December,  1902. At^that meeting the report of  ���the supeuntendent, J: \V. Astley, was  submitted for the approval of the shareholders. The report was as follows:  1'mofnix, B. C. Nov. 10, 1002.  Gkntlkmen:���  I herewith beg to submit my report  of operations on (he Snowshoe mine  fiom June 30th, 1901, to September  30th, 1902.  The number of lineal feet of under-  gjPljnd development, comoqsed of  diifts, crosscuts, raises and winzes, to  the 30th of September, was 5,766 feet,  and including the thiee compartment  shaft, 296 leet, brings the total tp 6,-  062 feet. Of this amount 1,737 ^ecl  have been driven in the fifteen months  under consideration. This does not  include any of the suiface cuts, etc.,  which extend over a large nrea.  Nine thousand and sixty-six (9,066)  tons o( ore haye been shipped, to the  smelters, and of fhis amount 3,237  tons were shipped in September. In  September, 1901, a large area of ground  was stripped, leaving the ore exposed  and ready for extraction. It is from  this pait that most oi the ore has been  shipped and is being quanied at the  present time.  In addition to the old buildings, the  following have been erected and put  into use: Bunkhotrse, a two story  frame building, well ventilated and fitted, with wash and bath tubs; boarding house, with spacious dining room  and mess rooni for staff; superintendent's house, foreman's house, officej  building, compressor house, boiler  house, ore bin. The timber has been  ordered for the followiiii>:. Ore bins  on new railway spur, with capacity for  2,500 tons; headworks over new shaft,  and hoist building.  : In December last the order 'was given for the new compressor, but it was  not delivered till June, and was installed and put into use on August 1 ith.  It is the high pressure half of a Rand  Corliss Cross compound, condensing  steam and compound- ajr .com.pres.sor,  and, is so constructed that it can be  operated by either steam or electricity.  The half at present in use is driven by  steam, and is guaranteed "to' supply]  power for ten 3^ inch diillsat an altitude of 5,000 feet above sea level. A  five inch air main-was put down from  the compressor tp a second air receiver,  situated at a central point,, and from  there the air is conveyed through small:  er pipes to the different vvoi kings.'  Two 80 h. p. boilers, of the return  type, set in brjck, were installed with  the compressor. These boilers are  built of steel plate, haying a tensile  strength of 60,000 pounds per square  inch, and are designed to carry a working pressure of 150 pounds per square  inch.  The new shaft is a three compartment shaft, each compartment being  4^ feet by 5 feet in the clear of timbers. Two compartments will be used  for hoisting purposes,'and the third for  air and water pipe lines, manway, etc.  The location ol the shaft was finally  determined upon as being the best position for handling the ore bodies, at  present developed, and for exploring  below the present workings. The shaft  is down 296 feet, and as soon as the  necessary pocket arrangements are  made for loading the skips, prospecting  the ore body below the No. 2 level will  be resumed.  Three sidetracks have been graded  and rails laid on the property. The  first ore put in was to the present ore  bin, and will accommodate eight ore  dump cars, and is also used for unloading supplies, such as timbers, ma-  '/second is a short  , rcsor for the deliv-  third is a spur from  .je site of the new ore  and rails laid most of  -t'i,8op feet long.  trie light plant, rated  at 80 16 c. p. lamps, was at first rented, it being understood that the Cascade Power Co. would furnish us with  light. -   However, the' completion of  their plant was postponed from time to  time, and it became necessary to purchase a small plant sufficient for present requirements.  During the directors' visit here it was  decided to operate, the hoist for the  shaft by electric power,' to -,be supplied  by the Cascade Power Co.' A 150 h.  p. doublejconjcal drum .electric hoist  has been secured, and Will be ready to  place in position at soon as the build  IS THE BEST  OF NEWS  Boundary Mining Notes.

The new ore bins and railway spur  to them will be situated at a point 52  feet lower in elevation than the present  tunnel, (known as the railway tunnel.)  If found necessary,^ rock crusher can  be installed, and all'fyck crushed before delivery to the ore liitis.  The low price of copper, together  with th^closing down.of the smelters  during pari of the sunimer, on account  of the Fernie coal' strike, had a very  depressing effect on the Boundary djs-  trfct.- However, the cqke difficulty  has been settled. -The smelters have  all resumed operations and are making  active preparations for increasing their  output*. Freight charges on ore have  been reduced, with the probability of  a still further reduction when the Great  Northern railway-system, hs built into  Phoenix.  The price of copper has undoubtedly reached the lowest point, and is recovering. In short, everything points  to the future successful operation of  these large ore deposits of the Boundary ^district.  In conclusion, I wish to express my  appreciation of the willing assistance 1  have received -from   Mr. Trevorrow,  Mr. Tonilinson and Mr.  Bannantyne.  -   Yours faithfully,  J, W. Astley, Supt.  -Annual Meeting Results. .  At the annual meeting of. the Snow-  shoe; mine, at which, the above report  was read, addresses were delivered by  ..the chairman, the Earl of Chesterfield,  and by Anthony J. McMillan, the managing director, and M/r..G,.. S,. Water-  low; Yice:criairm,ain1 al" of which, were  received by .{lie shareholders jn a most  satisfactory manner, The building of  a smelter was referred to, and it is more  than likely to take definiteform at an  early date. In the meantime, a reduction of freight rates to the custom smelters has been promised by President  Shaughnessy, of the G. P; R. .'as soon  as the tonnage is increased, it being  now from 200 to 250 tons daily.  Mr. Waterlow spoke enthusiastically  of the prospects, ol {he S.n.Qwg'io.e, and  made the important announcement that  an offer had been made for the prop  erty on the basis of there being a million tons of ore in sight, and that the  tonnage had not been overestimated.  The accounts which were submitted  showed a satisfactory state of the finances of the company, and the retiring  director, the Earl of Chesterfield, was  reappointed to that position. The other  directors are Geo. S. Waterlow, I). L.,  J. P., Chas! Gqy Pyrn, M, P., Or. H.  Lewis Jones and A- J- McMillan.  ���ft is evident that the Snowshoe Gold  and Copper Mines, Ltd., is one of the  strongest companies operating in the  Boundary district, and that its prospects for proving a profitable undertaking are of the brightest.  B. C. Miners' ��� Association.  A provincial British. Columbia Miners' association'has been formed as. a  result of several meetings held at Victoria by delegates of the mining interests from every section of the province,  and on February 25th a congress of  the representatives of the local mining  associations throughout the province  will be held there to finally form the  Miners' Association of British Columbia with headquarters at yjc'W'V  "Within four months the Granby  company expects to commence the payment of dividends," said Jay.P.Graves,  manager of the Granby company, to  a Spokane reporter last Monday. "At  a meeting of the company, held in  Montreal on the 15th of the month,  President S. H. C. Miner made the  official announcement of the fact. I  am not in a position to say what the  dividends will be, but they will be of  respectable size on our issued capital  of $'3i35��i9,����- Qf course, we are  prognosticating the dividends on the  expectation that we shall have no untoward difficult), such as a further  break in our coal and coke supply.  "At the meeting in Montreal five  new American directors were added to  the board, making 12 in all, and I feel  safe in saying that the Granby now has  the strongest directorate of any copper  company in the United States. The  men whom, we have added, include  John Stanton, statistician on coppei  for the American government and  president of the great Osceola Copper  Company of Michigan, who is recognized as one of the leaders in the metal  industry in this country. Then we  have Wm. H. Nicholls, president of  the Nicholls Chemical Company of  New York and head of the General  Chemical Company,_a successful $40,-  ooc,ooo.trusts George Martin Luther, a director, secretary and manager  of the Nicholls Company, is another  director. The fourth is Jacob Langa-  loth, president of the American Metals  Company, the largest selling agent ot  metals in the world- Lastly we have  Clement Houghton, a Boston capitalist  who his been heavily, interested 111 the  Michigan copper fields and is in the  Amalgamated Copper company.  Ore Runs Over $5 Per Ton.  "The old directors include Presideiu  Miner, \V. H. Robinson, A.G.FIumer-  felt, J.H. McKechnieol Granby, Que.,  and Fayette Brown of Montreal, all  of whom are Canadians, and A. L.  White of New York and myself. There  are seven Americans lo five Canadians  now on the board.  'The newcomers are heavily inter-,  ested in the company and I have sold  them a. Jarge volume'of stock at $40.  share. . The corporation is now out of  deht and has its smelter in shape to  handle 1,600 tons of ore a day, while  the mine is being equipped to produce  5,000 tons a day. VVeare arranging  to increase the capacity of the smelter  to about 2,300 tons a day by the first  of June. It has been currently reporU  ed that the Granby has 15,000,000 tons  of ore in sight. I do riot care to say  more about our tonnage than that."  "It has been asserted that the Granby is treating $5 ore. Is the ore running above or below, that figure?'' Mr.  Graves was, askecj.  "We have never treated ore running  so low as $5. All our product is above  that figure, even with metals al the low  valuation which now prevails."  At the B. C. mine 47 men are on  the payroll.  Not a single ore car was received by  the Granby mines last Wednesday, although there was an order for 40 or 50.  The daily coke needs of the three  Boundary smelters amounts to 350  tons. The amount received does not  yet reach this figure.  The Miner-Graves syndicate, owners of )he California mine, at Rossland,  have arranged to lease the ten drill  compressor plant to the Giant.  George S. Wrtterlow, J. P., vice-  chairman o( the -Snowshoe Gold and  Copper Mines, has been added to the  directorate of the Le Roi Mining Co.,  Ltd.  About 300 men are now employed  at the Granby mines, which force will  be somewhat increased as soon as the  smelter can operate its full battery of  four furnaces continuously, which will  be as soon as a continuous coke supply  is assured.  The last car of ore from the Providence mine, sent to the Trail smelter  last week, gave a net return to the shippers of $2,405.41, after payment of  the freight and treatment rate of $15  per ton. 'The gross weight of the ore  was 42,160 pounds.  HOCKEY-- _- :  CURLING  Local Sports Had Many Good'  Games.

LARGEST OF KIND IN THE DOMINION  Working Smoothly, and Will be Operated 10  Hours Dally, Crushing 1,500 Tons of the  Knob Hill Ore.  Last Wednesday all the wire connections having been made.thenew  orecrusher, ordered last May by the  Granby Co., was started in operation.  It has been 'ready for some time and  only awaited the coming of the electric current from Cascade.  The' initial run of the huge machine  was eminently satisfactory to Supt,  Williams, who will have it operated 10  hours daily, in which time it will  crush 1,500 tons of Knob Hill ore.  1 .ater another machine of the same type  will probably be installed at the Old  Ironsides ore bins.  The crushc is of, the Blake-Farrel 1  type, and is the largest machine of its  kind in Canada. The chilled steel  jaws will take a,piece' of rock 36x42  inches, and it is fitted with swing jaw  and pitman. It was furnished by the  Jenckes Machine Co.) of Sherbrooke,  Quebec., The freight on one of the  several cars in the shipment was over  $2,000.  To operate, the crusher a 100 h. p.  electric motor was secured from the  Canadian General Electric Co.

'  Game will be called  at eight o'clock,' ���  mine time, and  those wishing seats'  should go early.  Thursday night an interestiug game  of hockey was played between the City -  Eagles and   the Granby Eagles.    The.  City   Eagics  consisted  of   Marshall,  Karatofsky.   Shea,   McAuliffe,   Laird,  and Jenkins, while the Granby Eagles  were Dean, Fleming, Brown, DriscoII,  Newell and  Bongard.    Mess. Hunter  and Hall were umpires and  Tommy <  Lyons referee.    After a hot game and  many brilliant plays, the  Granby Eagles won by a score of 8 to 2.  After the game an elaborate banquet was served at the Bellevue hotel,  and many gen s in the way of song  and speech were. delivered by the  sixty odd guests present. .

Recent.reports are to the effect that  two Boundary .mines will, in all prob  , ability, begin to pay dividends before  theend:iof this year.   These mines  are the Granby and Snowshoe, both  located in  Phoenix camp.     As no  mines in' the Boundary have yet entered the dividend  paying class, the  s year<bf 1903 in the Boundaiy will be  .notable for something beside the large  tonnage of ore'   v   -  Last week's announcement, that the  present able board of directors of the  Granby Co. had been supplemented  by the addition of several men in the  very front in American copper circles,  is a most important one to this section,  It strengthens the hands of an already  strong corporation ��� the backbone of  the Boundary���and will bring it even  more prominently to the notice of the  copper mining world.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  The successful advertiser is the con  st.uit adveitiser.  A good advertising man should also  be a good business man.  Do not brag about jourself. If any  bragging is to be done, have your customers do it.  Better a crude ad that tells a story,  or iccords a fact, than the most artistic without meaning.  General Giant said, "I will .fight it  out on this line if it takes all summer."  Keep your eye on your business. That  is )OUi line.  If a man has siuceiity behind his  statements and can make people believe that he is light, it is bound to  creates a favorable impression and  bring his atore into popularity.  B.

Last week, however, a  new attraction appeared upon the horizon in the shape of the Golden Star,  issued in the town of the same name.  It is a six column four page weekly,  and,is neatly printed and well edited.  May its future be as golden as its  name, and may it escape the journalistic graveyard to which two or three  of its predecessors have gone.       ,  Rossland has shut down on gambling.  Rossland boasts a snow fall this winter of SS.35 inches.  The municipal voters' list ol Sandon  numbeis but 46 names.  The Kaslo skating rink, a fine  slructuie, has been damaged by  fire.  The writ foi the West Yale by-election has been issued, returnable March  2nd.   ' l  The largest hotel at Morrisey, was  burned'down last Saturday night, one  life being lost.  Vancouver carpenters demand an  eight-hour day from April 1st and Saturday half-holiday.  J. P.

Harry Matheson, of the Frank Sentinel, foimerly of Silverton, was mai-  ried in Spokane latt week to Mrs. E  L. liradshaw, of Rathdium, Idaho.  There are more Indians in British  Columbia than any otber piovince of  the Dominion. The'Indian population was 25,000 last year, an increase  of nearly 500 over pievious year.  Last year the lumbering industiy of  East and West Kootenay attained pro-  poi lions greatei than at any previous  period, and the ensuing year will see  fuither advances on an equally important Scale.   NEWSPAPER MEN FOREGATHER.  If there is one thing  more than another that the peopleof Phoenix should  heartily support to the extent of their  ability, it is the Phoenix General Hospital. "The institution  is  thoroughly  modern and is well conducted with a  splendid nursing staffL and it is a boon  to the entire community.     It would  certainly be a graceful act ot appreciation if the city council would   make a  monthly appropriation for the hospital,  st is done in some other cities. Funds  are constantly needed.   Think it over,  gentlemen..   " ���  ^Neyer, since the Boundary railway  was built, some four years ago, have  the divisional officials of the C. P. R.  been so much "up against it" in operating the line as they have been this  winter. In eight or ten years there  has not been as much snow as we  hstye this season. "As a result the demand, for power has been far greater  than .could be supplied���especiallyin  the Boundary country. The divisional officials are doing the best they  can ,under the circumstances, and il  their requests for additional motive  power were complied with, it would  greatly simplify the situation, notwith-  staadirsg the heavy snows.

These extra shops will mean {he em-  ploymerit of a larger number of men at  Nelson, quite a large staff being necessary for the work -projected. Two  years ago the total yard accommodation amounted to under two miles,  while at present it is between ten .and  eleven miles, but even this is not sufficient to handle the increasing traffic,  and at least two new sidetracks will be  installed,  It is also likely that new sheds for  car -repsir work will be erected and extensions made to the present ones.  The work of filling in the trestles along  the line of the Columbia and Western  will be continued, and will be finished  before the end of the year, as well as  the Kootenay and Slocan river bridges.  The changing of the tracks to a heavier  class of rails between Nelson and Cas^  tlegar will be pushed ahead, and should  be completed shortly-  All along the line the company will  prepare for expected heavier traffic,  caused by the enlarging of the smelters  at Grand Forks, Greenwood and boundary Falls.

There were  visitors one day at his 'laboratory,' to  whom, as usual, he was polite, although busy, and he patiently answered many questions unnecessarily  shouted at him. Finally, one of the  visitors, the humorist of the party,  said to another: "I bet he'd hear if  we-ask him to have a drink." "Yes,"  said Edison, looking directly at the  man and smiling, "I would; 'but no>  thank you, not to-day."

People     at     Broadway  and Forty-second street, says the "Tribune," had just watched a young: fellow disappear down the cross street irt  pursuit of his Derby, and were turning-  to go on   their ways,   when a   negro  rounded the corner, who looked like a  hat-rack.    Derbies were  tucked under  each aria: he held a muddy tall hat in  one hand and a white felt crush  hat  In   Ihe  other,   and  on   top  of his  own  Derby a black felt hat was Jammed securely.   He wore a smile from ear to  ear.  "What are you doing with all thoss  hats?" someone asked him.  "Well. I's ta.kln' all dat am a-com-  in' ma way," and he grjnned. . "I could  ���a' got more, but I airi*t got no more  place  to put  urn."  "Why don't you give them back to  the men who lost them?" he was  asked. '  "Well, you see," said he. "they was  most gen'rally so fah aiway dat I  couldn't wait." -  Then he went on up Broadway, with,  all his hats.
