 Tenth Year.  LOCAL MARKSMEN  FORM ASSOCIATION  Enthusiasts Organize for/Rifle  , Practice . ���������/  The Phoenix Rifle association was  formed at an enthusiastic meeting of  local marksmen in the city hall on  Friday evening of last week. Dr. J.  D. MacLean, who had been the moving spirit in promoting the formation  of the association,presided over the  meeting,' and" explained the objects and  requirements of the membership, which  was followed by a unanimous vote in  favor of organization.  About thirty ;of those, present took  the oath of allegiance before William  Dulahay, J P.,rand Mayor Rurnberger,  Alex. Mcl<rae!was elected captain of  the association; T. A. Love, secretary-  treasurer; and W, Slack, H.EIIard,  G, W. Rurnberger, F. C. Graham and  R.   L  Myt on,   executive committee.  The first list of members will be forwarded to the government with requisition for rifle*} oh;July i3th.^Any  person desiring' to become a member  should call on the captain, before that  date or attend a special meeting in the  city hall on Monday next at 8 p.m.  and becomt; enrolled. The membership fee is $3, and it is expected a list  of 60 will be secured.     .      /.-.,     .���;,  A cominVttee of the captain, Messrs  Btitterworth, Bateman and \V.

Rice of.that city in the Rio Tin to  group of claims near Curlew, Wash.,  and incorporated the Rio Tinto Tread  well M ining Co. I called the attention  of your readers to the importance of  this group of claims in a former issue,,  quoting from Mr. S. Aughey's report.  Mr. Aughey is looked upon in Spokane  as an authority on mines and mining.  Mr. Dennis has been ,in the mining  business for more' than thirty years;  he is the oldest mining man in Spo  kane, and yet but a little past middlr  life. He is interested in valuable  mines in Oregon. Washington, Idaho,  Montana and British Columbia. He  is only outclassed in real estate holdings  by five rir six citizens in Spokane, and  -is as- widely and-favorablv-'known '?��  any citizen in the state of Washington.  Mr. Dennis is president of the Rio  Tinto-Treadwell company. Mr. Hans  J. Rice was a itizen of Shoshone  county, Idaho, for fifteen years, and  served as county treasurer of thai  county for four-years ; he. has been  mining for twenty years arid is inter  csted in several, valuabl'v properties in  the Coeurd'Alenes, with large holdings in the: Alice; the Ancho, the  Tombstone and; Carney mines. Mr.  Rice belongs io that contingency of U  S. citizens which believers in and prac  lines the "square deal." The company  is ready to receive bids for driving roo  to 400 feet of 5 x 7 tunnel.

A.-'.H. McNeill, solicitor for the V.

The recent strike on the Blue 'Bird  at Rossland is reported by the Trail  News to have yielded $2400 for two  men's work for 6y�� days,  the necessary steps in the matter.  Communications were also read from  J. L. Martin, secretary of the Phoenix  Electric company, that it is the duty  of the city to report to the council any  lights being out of order; from; G. D.

In the" course of- ten days the enlarging of two, more furnaces will be  completed at" Granby ' smelter. ' "The  company expects to blow them in about  July 18, when six of the smelter's  battery of eight furnaces will be enlarged and in operation. This will  mean increased requirements of ore  and the increasing of the force at the  mines. With the six new furnaces  Granby"will have a smelting! "capacity  equal to that of the eight old ones, and  it is now onlya matter of a few weeks  until the entire battery is enlarged and  Granby will commence fracturing  records in mining and smelting copper  ore. ,  Mclnnes, M.P.P., for, haying obtained  a special grant of $500 from the . provincial; government for the city of  Phoenix.  Mayor Rumberger gave���;notice that;  at the next meeting of the council he  would introduce the municipal rate bylaw for the year 1909.        ;    ���  The following accounts were passed:  Phoenix Electric .Light Co ,$r 1 2; H.

Hospital Appreciates Donallon  The board of directors of Phoenix  general hospital;wish to, take this opportunity to publicly thank Phoenix  hive, L. O. '1'. M., for a donation of  $156.40. This is one of the largest  donations ever- received, and at this  time is very acceptable on account of  contemplated repairs and additions to  the equipment of the hospital.  J. J. Strutzel, Sec. Treas,  Since the sale] of the Dominion  Copper mine3 and 'smelter a month agp  there has been much speculation in  mining circles as tb the future of the  Dominion properties. While it was  announced by the purchasers, the  Hayden interests^ that they would  operate the mines, and   their  newly-  Le Kol To Resume  Advices received in Rossland from  the managing director of the l.e Roi  Mining company state that work on  that company's property will be re-  surhed?lhisl month, and shipments to  the Northport smelter will be resumed  this month. ;The importance of this  move to Rossland: cannot1 well be exaggerated.* as apart from the laige  mini herof men,who will be employed,  the reopening up of the famous mine  will very largely increase the ore output irfjiihe district. ^.,  Boundary Ore  Sbipmeols      ,  The ore shipments /tom  Boundary  mines for the past  week arid year to  date follows:  Week  Year  Granby mines.....  .15.307  504,546  Mother Lode.....  146,709  Snowshoe . .. . . ."..  ���   2.53��  82,301  Golden Eagle   ... .  60  33��  Sally ..'.;:;.:   :V:  ..  100  Oro Denoro   i.5��3  Total,  i7.837    735.558  ' SMELTER   TREATMENT  Granby  16,326    489,050  B.C.

What  would   have  i been   a  serious  mishap   was  averted  h >wever   by  the agility of Constable  I Karapata, who immediately gave chase  [and'engaged the flying prisoner in a  rough and tumble, in which the   latter  lost a considerable portion of his attire.

P. F. Roosa has  since stated that operations will com  mence next monthf there are still those  who are skeptical enough to look for  another turn of affairs before operations begin. ;|:; ;  The fact that Hayden was the only  bidder at the sale,;and secu.ed the  entire Dominion properties for $261,-  500, is not without, significance when  it is considered jjhat $400,000 was  recently spent on- smelter improvements, and that other interests in; the  Boundary had previously offered $300,-'  000 for,tt,he mines.4k ���:-  . Last fall, Frederic Keffer, consulting  engineervpf the British Columbia Copper company, made an exhaustive examination1 of the Dominion mines, and  they have since been inspected by-  New York officials "of the same company. It is also understood that the  enlargement of the BC. Copper smelter has practically been decided upon.  Although no information can .be secured it is believed ..that a consolidation of B.C. Copper and the Dominion is not improbable. When  asked by the Pioneer as to the probability of such a move,, J. E. McAllister,  general manager of the B. C. Copper  company, stated that; he knew nothing  concerning the matter.  The Toronto Financial Post suggests  a_jDrobable arnajgalifcation..of,.the.two  'companies or an arrangement whereby  the ��� ores,of "the" 'Ne# Djoniini on Copper  company will be treated at the B. C.  Copper company's sVrielter.'  The last issue of the New York  Copper Curb contains the following  reference to the situation :  Announcement was made during the  week that the Lewisohn interests in the  British Columbia Copper\Co. had been  accorded representation,on the board  in the election of none other than Mr,  Adolph Lewisohn himself.    Just what  the significance of Mr. Lewisohn's presence in the official household the company itself has not  volunteered  to explain,   although the "Street" has been  busy   with   speculation   upon   it.    A  popular theory is that it is for the purpose of promoting a possible consolidation of the properties of the British  Columbia Copper Co. and those of the  Dominion Copper Co., which  latter is  now  ready to   be  refinanced.    It  is  claimed  that the  equipments" of the  Dominion company are utterly inefficient and that in the construction of  the    smelter    it    was    practically    a  waste   of  the   company's   resources:  On  the other   hand, it  is   said   the  plant  with  which  the  B.C.   Copper  Co.   has  shown   its efficiency  in the  economic reduction of the company's  ores   and   in   the   production   of   a  bullion which compares favorably with  any of that locality.    In  composition  the ores of the   Dominion   company  are identical with those of the British  Columbia, while it is said of the former  that it has a much larger tonnage upon  which to draw in the future.    A.nuetral  interest says there is no doubt that the  consolidation of the two would conserve the shareholders of each as noth  ing else which has  yet been planned  could do.    He claims to  be  a  shareholder in each of the companies and  says   that  he   is   perfectly   willing   to  acquiesce in any course that shall have  been   recommended  and   brought   to  him with the approval of Mr. Lewisohn  and his associatiates.

'  -Min-  f I5-Cent Copper Predietiao  Boston���Speaking    of   the    metal  situation a member of the-Copper Producers association who represents one  of the largest producers, says:  '���I believe that before the year 1909  shall have passed into history we wili  see 15-cent copper. Although published statistics would seem to indicate  that at the present time the production  of copper is considerably in excess of  the consumption, I question to what  extent t,he compters of some of these  statistics are entitled to speak with  authority. . The man who is able ��� to  tell you just .what tbis.countryand that  country is consuming, possesses more  wisdorrV -than ��� many of us who have  been longer in the business.  "I believe the demand for copper is  creeping up on the output, enormous  as it is,.and that very soon it will not  only be equal thereto, but will actually  exceed it. If I- am wrong, and there  continues a real surplus of output there  is only one result,���a reduction in the  price."  The big high grade ledge on   the  Clyde Belt is exposed for 75 -feet and  is of an average width of three and a  I half feet.  Mines, for the year ending. 31, 1908,  has just been issued from Victoria. It  is complete with statistics of the premier  industry-of British Columbia, together  with an excellent map of the province  and nurrierons illustrations of mining  scenes in sections now coming into  prominence.  A  statement  of the total  mineral  production of British Columbia,  up to  and including the year 1908 places the  output of the province at  $323.377.���  559.    The  report   proceeds  to  state  that,while the value of the mineral products of.the,province for theyearjigoS  amounts to $23,8s1.2 77. wh'di is less  than that in 1906 or  1907, it is still  considerably greater than that of any  previous year.    But although the total  value is less, the tonnage of ore mined  in 1908 was the largest ever ^produced  in   the . province  in   any  year.    The  average assay was also slightly greater  than that of  1907.    But the average  market value of the various metals, was  much lower than in previous,years, and  it is this circumstance that has caused  the value of the year's output to fall  below those of 1906 or   1907.    The  decrease in the market value is placed  at $3,906,826, so that but for this the  result for the year  1908 would 'have  surpassed anything  in the records of  the mining industry in this province.  '   The tonnage of ore mined during  the-year, exclusive of coal, amounted  to 2,083,606 .tons, an-increase over the  preceding   year   of  279,492   tons   or  ^.5 percent.    This increase resulted  largely from the increased tonnage from  Phoenix mines.   The Boundary district  contributed   71.6  ,per   cent,  of "the  mineral production of> the province last  year,  Rossland  coming next with  a  percentage of T4 5.    A careful analysis  of these, figures,  however, shows that  he mines of Phoenix,, those withip-or  bordering on the city limits, produced  80 per cent of the output of the Boundary district.    Phoenix, therefore, not  only stands;pver all othei;camps of the  province,-but shipped more ore than  the combined output of all other mines  n the province,, or,produced  56..per  cent, of the  entire > mineral- output of  British Columbia in, 1908.  ' Copper production in the proyince  last   year   amounted   to   47,264,614  pounds,    an,  increase   of   6,441,984  pounds, or 15.7 per cent.    The great  increase  in production was made in  Phoenix, due to the increased tonnage  of ore mined; there was a decrease' in  practically all .other districts.    Of the  jtotal copper output of the.province, the  Boundary district supplied 40,182,7.90  pounds, or 85,,%,    The average assays  based upon the recoveries were:  Boun-  land, 8 34%  An analysis of the above copper  production evidences the fact that  Phoenix has a tight grip on the title  "Tne Copper City of Canada." The  output of copper from mines within  Phoenix city limits last year amounted  to about 32,000,000 pounds, or 68 per  cent of the production of British Col  umbia. Incidentally, Phoenix mines  produced about 55 per cent, of the  entire copper production of Canada.  The commercial depression doubt  less had an adverse influence on the  production of coal, both the tonnage  and value showing a decrease in 1908  as compared with that in 1907. The  value of the coke produced increased  and the demand .is likely to become  larger with the improvement in trade  and the development of industries consuming this article.  The lead production of the province  for the year 1908 was 43,195,733 lbs.  of lead, having a market value of $r,-  632,799. showing, as compared with  the previous year, a decrease in amount  of 4,542,970 lbs. of lead, or 9.5%, and  a decrease  in   value  of $658,6159, or  29%.  The total amount of silver produced  in the province during the  year   1908  was 2,631,389 ounces, valued  at  $1,  321,483, a decrease in amount of 114,-  059 ounces and in value $382,342  The average market price of silver  in 1908 was 11.84 cents per ounce  lower than in 1907, which ��� on the  present year's output accounts for  $3ir>556 of the decrease in-value this  year.  The value of gold produced from  lode mining in.the province during the  year was $5,282,880, an increase of  some $1,227,860, or over 30%. This  remarkable increase was due principally  to the Rossland camp, which produced  this year some $986,806, or 50%, more  gold than in 1907, partly by an increased tonnage, but chiefly through  an increased average assay value of  ores of the camp. ,v "~ ',  '��� The only, large, stamp^ mill in operation .was at Hedley, which milled some  42,000 tons ��� of ore, producing about  20,000 ounces of gold.  The production of placer gold during the year 1908 was about $647,000,  p. decrease as, compared with the previous year of $181 000, or 21.8%.  ���Placer gold mining, while probably the  most fascinating form of mining, since  a prospector, can attempt it without the  aid of'capital, is certainly subject to  the greatest fluctuations, even after it  passes out of the range of individual  methods into the bands of large com  panies.
