This is exactly  what happened in Phoenix this week,  and James II. Kennedy, the chief en-1  gineer, is himself with the paity.  AN. Kennedy did not have much to  say about the specific object of the  new lines beiiif; tun, hut it is understood that some change in the route,  after coining in sight of the city from  I'rovidence creek, west of town, is contemplated. The route decided on  over a year ago, after covering' eveiy  foot ol ground within a couple of  miles of Phoenix with lines, was undei  the C. I'. R. Brooklyn spur, thence  ciossing the gulch near the Slemwin-  der, directly through the Pioneei  building and to the station site on the  Idaho flat.  Appaienlly Mr. Kennedy is trying  to find a shorter entrance lo the city,  for his young men aie busy gndironing  the lower end of the city with survey-  lines. Two of these routes cross'  lower Dominion avenue to the Idaho  giound. No official announcement  has yet been made as to the definite  and final route.

At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council three additional street lights  were ordered put up, one on the corner of School street and Knob Hill  avenue,   and two on Brooklyn avenue.  A communication was read from the  Bank of Montreal, and the sum of  $335-z3 was ordered paid to that bank,  being the interest on the $o,ooq note  of the city. The name of C.H. Flood,  as selected by the Volunteer Fire Department, for chief, was ratified by the  council.  The following accounts were ordered paid: Pioneer Pub. Co., $37; \V,  L. Germaine, $2; T. \V. Hodgins, $2;  R. B. Boucher, $45.  Several After Mineral Ground  The bonding of the Blue Jay claim  in Skylark camp, for $10,000, has  awakened interest in claims in that locality. Shortly after the publication  of the news of the bond in the Pioneer,  a claim between the Skylark and Blue  Jay was located by Adolpli Sercu, of  this city. This was on the ioth iiist,  and it was called the Lucky Shot. Two  days later a portion ofthe same ground  was located by \V. H. Docksteader as  the Flag of All Nations. '��� On the 16th  it was staked by Rily ' Edwards and  Laurence Morrison as the Blue Jay  fraction.   >  ���Mr. Docksteader is doing assessment  work'on the property,, kn<��- says Edwards arid Morrison have thrown up  their location. Sercu slates that he  lias a full claim, has a prior location  and will hold it. The Docksteader  location, which is a fraction, laps ovei  the Sercu location. Theie is talk of  the Blue Jay people taking an option  or bond on the new location.

I ast Saiuidqy a Phoenix, hockey  team of small boys went down to Greenwood and had a game with the larger  boys of that city, the score resulting in  7 to 1 in favor of Greenwood. The  Phoenix boys were all under 14 years.  Wednesday night another game was  played on the Phoenix rink, when the  tables were turned, the score being 6  to 3, in favor of Phoenix. In the latter game the Phoenix juniors were not  outclassed. The boys in both teams,  were all of 15 years gnd oyer. After  the game the visitors were invited to  supper at the Bellevue hotel.  USED IN THE THREE LONG TUNNELS  Underground Work on the No. 3 Tunnel Being Pushed ��� When Completed Electric  Aline Cars to Be Used.  New Fjre Bepurlrncpt Officers,  A meeting of the Phoenix Volunteer  Fire Department was held Tuesday  evening at the rooms of James Marshall, in the McMillan block, when  the following officers were elected:  Chief, Chas. H. Flood; secretary, O.  N. Galer; treasurer, J. li. Boyle. At  a subsequent meeting of the two hose  companies the following were chosen  as officers: No. 2 Company, Captain,  E. P.. Shea; lieutenant, A. Hillyer.  No. 1 Company, Captain, Jsaac Craw  ford,  School Board's First Alee ting.  Wednesday evening the school hoard  organized for the year by electing Sam  uel Somerville as chairman and'Isaac  Crawford secretary, 'i'he chief business transacted was passing the estimates for the ensuing year, It js figr  ured that it will require about $2,400  to ��� pay the expenses of the pubiic  school for 1903, of which some $2,000  in salaries, and the balance is for fuel,  insurance, etc.  F. G. Billings, secretary of the Yale-  Colurflbja "dumber Co.., of Nakusp,  came in on Thursday's train.  ��� At no very distant date it is more  than likely that the ore cars in the  three tunnels of the Qranby mines, according to the plans of the management of the company. So far as  known, this will be the first metallic-,  erotis mining concern in the'province  to utilize electricity in ' the .operation  of its ore cars. Al present the cars at  the Granby mines are operated by  hand and by mule power.  Already there are two long tunnels  from the Knob Hill mine, both supplied with capacious ore bunkers at  portals, which are in constant use. In  addition to these, a third tunnel has  been started and driven a couple of  hundred t'eet, to tap the 100-foot level  of the Old Ironsides mine. 'I'he workings on this leye} ye now being ex.  tpned to, the south, and will.be extended through new ground to the Aetna  shaft, which at one time was expected  to be the main working shaft. When  this drifting is done���all through solid  ore���and connections' arc made with  the work now done from the outside,  the No. 3 tunnel will be about i,<;oo  teet.m length, not counting the.numerous other workings on the same level  of the mine. By that time electricity  will probably be used as motiva power  in the other tunnels and workings.  ���As the Granby Co. has contracted  for a minimum of 2,000 horse power  in electrical energy fipm'the Cascade  people for ny.ne.s ami smelter, some of !  which is already in use, there will he no  trouble about getting all of the curreni  that is needed.  asts there, the two besi prizes that were  being played for.  One of these was the New York Life  Grand Challenge Cup, a massive silver  affair, that last year went to'the Sandon  club. In this contest the Phoenix  boys met and defeated Hall of Sandon,  Uirnie of Greenwood, Brown of Revelstoke, Tamblyn of Nelson, and Car-  ruthers of Revalstoke.  The other was the Oliver Cup, for  which they defeated Birnie of Green  wood, Brown of Revelstoke, Fraser of  Rossland, Grimmett of Sandon and  Hall of Sandon. Sandon also had  this cup last year.  The team from Phoenix consisted  of T. J. Hardy, Isaac Crawford, O. B.  Smith, Jr., and Dr. R. B. Boucher,  skip. If they had stayed till all the  events were over, they might have  brought over two or three more cups  As it was another cup went to Greenwood, making three in the Boundary  this year. 'I'he veteran curlers of the  association did not seem to fear the  competition from Phoenix when the  phy was started, but they soon learned their mistake.  -  When the tiain with the victors and  their prizes arrived last Saturday it was  met by a large concourse of citizens  and a brass ba.nd, and the curlers weie  escorted jn sleighs through the city. A  stop was made at the postoffice, and  each member of the team made a felicitous speech,  Sandon and Phoenix at Hockey.  Monday   evening   the best   hockey  game of the season thus far was   played at the Phoenix  rink,   between the  crack Sandon team and the local puck  enthusiasts.    The game resulted in a  victory for Sandon by a  score  of 4 to  2, and was a clean and fast game from  start to finish.     The local team show-  ed up to better advantage  than it has  in any game this year, and while it was  hardly expected to win from  the best  team perhaps in the Kooteuays, a better game than was anticipated was the  result.    The following was the line-up  of the two clubs:  Sandon.  Hoggan.,.,.... Goal ..  Mclntyre...... Point ...  J. Crawford.. Cover Point  W. Crawford. .. Rover...  Hood  .. Center..... .Coulton  E. Crawford .... Wing........ Mead  Howarth ...... Wing .7 Strutzel  Bob Car ley, of Nelson, a veteran in  hockey, was the referee, and gave the  best of satisfaction, while the umpires  were Harry Dickinson of Greenwood  and Harry Plaisance oC I'hoenix.  After the game the visitors, togethei  with the victorious curlers were tendered a banquet at the Knob Hill hotel,  which was much enjoyed by thote  present. Chas. D. Hunter, as president of the Phoenix Hockey Cliib( was  chairman, ?nd miuiy bright speeches,  were made by the hockey boys, curlers  and guests. Among those who spoke  or recited or sang were: Wm.. Mac-  Adams, E. Crawford, R. J. Mclntyre,  T. Green, R. B. Boucher, Isaac Crawford, P. J.Hardy, Harry Johns, H.  Dickinson, R. H. Cailey, \V. Is.  Cochrane, C. H. Flood, and Geo. S.  Turner.  --   /esteiday  the Granby mines shipped Co cars of ore.  A couple of cars c( ore from the Seattle, on the North Fork, have been  sent to the Trail smelter.  The new ore crusher at the" Knob  Hill mine is working steadily, as well  as the tramway, with its five-ton cars.  At the Snowshoe the new ore bins,  with a capacity of 2,500 tons, are now  in use.

A contract has been made with the  management of the Morrison'mine, in  Deadwood camp, by which the Sunset  smelter will take a large quantity of  the ore of that mine.  The Granby company "recently purchased the Ironsides fraction claim  from Alex Douglas. It adjoins the  Banner claim, one of the Granby  group, and was se( ured largely for its  timber.  A meeting will be held on the 3d of  Febiuary at Grand Forks for the purpose of winding up the affairs of the  liquidator ofthe Grey Eagle, Knob  Hill and Old Ironsides companies,  which were united in the present Granby company.  The Sunset smelter has one furnace  in operation, another nearly ready,  aud a third ordered. When fully completed the battery will consist or five  blast lurnaces and two converters, and  all arrangements are with this, object  in view.  A recently issued circular of the  B. C. Copper Co., owning the Mother  Lode mine and smeller, states that it  is proposed to increase the capital to  $2,000,000, for the purpose of increasing the smelter capacity lo 60,000 tons  per month and to put in a copper converting plant.

A  bill has,    \  been introduced in the   United States''.- !  Congress to give  Mr. Graves the'nec-1 '  essary permit to dam a  portion of the,- \ \  Columbia river, so as to- develop 25,- f *  000 horse power.    Ths Pioneer learn-     ;  ed of the enterprise several  months  ago, but it was not in "a. shape.then to ���  make public  It is proposed to build long distance ,  transmission  lines  to  Republic   and  other Washington   mining camps, and  possibly to  British   Columbia, for the   ' 7  delivery of power.    Inasmuch as the  steam costs at the mjnes, as now manufactured,   from  $*so  to   $200 per"  horse power per year, and water power  can  be delivered  for $50,  more or  less, per year per horse powerj it can  be readily seen that there will be great  demand for it for a large   radius from  the power site.  The enterprise is much like that in  operation now at Cascade, only it will  be on several times that scale. If the  permit is granted by Congress, which  seems likely, it will probably take a  year or two to get it into operation.  h;  Heaviest Snow la Years.  This week one or two more feet of  snow fell all over the Boundary, making it the worst that has been experienced in this section -in many years.  The C. P. R. has had a hard time in  getting its trains through at all, and  the large rotary snow plow has been  kept busy clearing the track on the  divide, near Farron. The ordinary  flangeis have been fairly successful in  clearing the tracks in the Boundary-  proper, and while trains have been  late, they have managed to get through  in 'he course of time. Naturally the  ore traffic has been somewhat delayed,  on account ol the heavy fall of snow.  P. L. S.  Electric Light Notice.  The Phoenix Water Supply Co.,  Ltd., have purchased fiom the Greenwood Electric Light and Power Co.,  Ltd., the electric lighting s)stem of  Phoenix, and the transfer has just been  completed.  Hereafter ail patrons of electric  lights will pay their monthly rentals at  the office of the Phoenix Water Supply  Co., Ltd., in the Bank block on.

While we are'in  sympathy with the  proposition, the" statement that capital  has ceaied entirely lo flow into this  province for  mining purposes, is not  true.

Every  hamlet in.the province worthy of the  1 name should be represented  there, as  it is likely to be a turning point in the  history of our. mining.    Things are  in a bad shape in  many respects, notwithstanding that some progress has  been.'made,' and definite steps will be  taken, to gel, remedial legislation passed. ,Notpnly,are miners, and'mine  ownetSj interested directly, but bank  ers, [farmers and professional men are  equally; affected, though   more indi  rectly.

U/ider the above head the Victoria  Times 1 assails the department of educa  tion ol this province (or the multitude  of foolish questions prepared for answer  in totally inadequate time in high school  examinations. One of these questions  i&js follows:  JJL.) ��� What are the names ol the elec  toral.disftiCts-into which the -province  is divided by the Redistribution Act of  1903, and how many members does it  provide for each constituency?  .There are just, 34 of these and the  Times remarks: "The small boy it will  be plsserved, was supposed not only to  haVethete34 names at his finger-tips,  buCmust be able to attach to each constituency the number of the members  it is eptitled to send to the Witanage-  tnot of the, Wise which meets across  Jariws Bay."  Then ^he Times goes on: " Then  we.pDtae to the 18 incorporated cities  ���sf British Columbia, and we have a  ���confession to make.

A loud ad, like an empty vessel  makes the most noise���but that's all.  A successful advertiser affirms:  "Fools never yet made an advertiser  permanently successful."  A little advertising when few aie  using space is just as important as large  spaces when full pages are the rule.  White space in an advertisement is  like fertilizer in the ground ��� it costs  meney to put it there but it enriches  the soil.  The value of the booklet is underestimated by many otherwise clever advertisers. It is a splendid aid to the  newspaper advertisement.

The conditions suirounding the mining industry of Biitish Columbia���the  !>rinci|>.".| industiy   of  the  piovime���  have become so buidensomc that min  in(5 opeiations have ceased  10 yield a  ptofii to investors, npd. capital lias ceased to (low into the   countiy.     Efforts  have been made by certain  classes in  the community, sometimes on  behalf  of particular.miners,''sometimes on behalf of tlie mincowneis, and sometimes  by delegations /from   municipalities to  secure  relief from-' the  parliahieut  ol  Canada/arid,from the legislature of the  province,    All Miijli effoi ts have hereto-:  foic tailed, pailly owing to the  imperfect knowledge of our difficulties  pos-  svssed by our   legislators,   and   partly  owing to the Jack   of united, brganiz-  niion fairly representative  of all persons iiiicrchicd in the niiniii" industry.  With a. view to overcoming  such  obstacles and securing for the mining industiy the support which   it  deserves,  it is proposed to form a lar^e and representative association of miners, mine.-  oaneiSj  merdinnts,  hankers,,,.'fanners  and piofessidnal   men,  and all   other  persons, who may be, directly or indirectly interested in tlie mining industry.  By this means, and apparently only  by tin's means, can xve secuie relief for  the industry and such favourable legislation as will restore confidence in fdrT  eign capitalists,  If you can niake our mining industry  prosperous, every other industry in tlie  province will natuially and; necessarily  shaie in such prosperity.'; 'I'he present  depression of nearly all such other in-  dtistiies is the natural  and   necessary  result of the depression in jhiningj  Not an pnlrled EsperlfneDf.  The proposed association is not an  untiied expeiimerit7'1,. Some years; ago  the miners apd nijneowners of California found 'themselves .hampered'as we  are now, with a lot of unjust legislative  conditions,    A few individuals met together to discuss the situation <and devise a remedy, and   they   started the  California Mineis'Association for  the  purpose.     The idea was   grasped immediately, by the working miners,  the  miiieowners,   the  merchants,   farmers  and others, and  the  result, xvas  that  within a. very short time   the  association   succeeded   in obtaining  all the  remedial legislation they required, and  the mining industry   of the   state  increased   by leaps  and   bounds,   and  brought prosperity tO ail other, industries also1. <  ���    .    .   .
