P. Bottle  W. \V. Carter has returned from do-  .ing assessment work on bis claims on  Copper Creek, Kettle river.  The Diamond-Texas, a high-grade  mine near Greenwood, which was  shut down for some weeks, has again  resumed.  The B. C. Copper company's -smelter treated 13,501 tons this weeki  Mother Lode. 9,345 tons; Oro Denoro,  3,941; other properties, 215.  Seven men \vere laid off at the Sunset for a few days last week. The  mine was {.reducing too much ore  for the smelter.  The Dominion Copper company's  smelter is now turning out matte at  the rate of about.three cars, per week,  which is shipped to the converters at  Greenwood smelter.  Work has been commenced on new  waste ore bins: for use in connection  with the Granby Curlew tunnel. A  trestle woik will later be built from the  mouth of the tunnel which at the bins  will be,at ah elevation of about 93 feet  above the C.P.R. track. ~  The plans; of the promoters of .the  Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel are said to  have been delayed " on account of the  death of one of the men interested in  one of the claims along the right of  way. Duncan M clntosh is now in  Spokane in connection with the tunnel  scheme.    :' ' ���'"  A good showing has Keen struck at  the Tip Top, in the Skylark camp,  where-cross-cutting is being actively  carried on, the character of the ore  b'.King most encouraging:- Sinking on  the big copper showing revealed the  fact that the ledge widened to 15 feet,;  and was 18 feet. hv depth. .It, dips  north' by. northeastand lies at an angle  of about 22 degrees: Afteri cutting  through the ore the men continued to  sink for nearly 20 feet and are now  nearing the ore body again in the  crosscut, which is over 30 feet in.  The main shaft of the Tip Top is about  150 feet in depth. H. V. Fuller, who  has been in the east in connection  with forming a new company to develop  the Tip'Tbp. is" expected to return fn<  a few days.  Work will shortly commence again  on the Freemont property. -  The coke supply is being received at  all the smelters in satisfactory quantities. .     ,...'  1 The double shift . aj the . E.P.U. is  working steadily. They have left the  main tunnel and are drifting to the  left.  The new spur being constructed by  W. P. Tierney & Co. to the Mother  Lode mine will require about a month  to be completed.     ;   ���  Dominion Copper'.company's smelter treated 4.303 tons Ibis week as  follows: Brooklyn, 1,373 tons; Rawhide, 2,159; Mountain! Rose 76; Sunset, 695. ; ....yy.:. ���.:  An extra force of i^nneh were working at the Oro Denoro this week.which  shipped 3370 tons. This was done  to provide for the steady increasing  tonnage at the smeltery-     ;  It is stated that the-Prince Henry,  one of the best higlvgrade properties  in Greenwood camp-iiis .expected to  resume operations shortly. A deal is  at present under way for the purpose  of financing the work!,  Shippments from j Boundary mines  .totallftd 38,113 tons 'this - week. This  is the biggest weekly ;tonhage in the  history of the Boundary, with one exception. In the third week ;of September, 1907, the shipments were 41,734  tons. -The- next largest- was 37/111  in July, 1907.' ''-',   -'.'"'  7 George Harriman.of San, Francisco  was in the Boundary last' w;eek. Mr.  Harriman is interested in the Bell mine  on the West Fork and it-is stated that  his interest has been bonded to'J.'D.  Sword, who will shortly commence de  velopment work. A'; tunnel will be  run to tap the lead at a depth.  Rowland King has "returned to take  the position he formerly held7 in the  assay office ofthe B.C. Copper company's smelter. Since the close down  last fall he has been working at the  Takilma smelter, under George! Crear,  formerly assayer. andjassista.nt^superin-.  tendent for the 7 Dominion' Copper  company.  MOTHERLWE  IMPROVEMENTS  Expe  ct to Ship 2,000  Tons Per  Day  B.  G Copper Co.  Increasing  Shipping;, Facilities  SOME SPECIAL DISHES ARE:  FILLETS OF MACKERAL, 35c. per Can.

Copper company have  been adding many new improvements  to the shipping facilities at their  Mother Lode mine and when completed the mine will beshipping 2,000 tons  per  day.  A few weeks ago the big new Rand  compressor was put in commission and  has since been running without a  hitch. Last week work was commenced on the erection of a new'20,-  000 volt substation, which is being  built near the new compressor building. This when completed will mean  ample supply of steady electtical power  for the operation of the big compressors and other mine machinery. -The  erection ofthe substation is in charge  of Mayor Bunting of Greenwood who  put a gang of men to work on it last  Thursday. It is expected to be completed early next month.  Four new self dumping train cars  were also put in comission last week,  and five more are under order. The  improvements indicate that the B. C.  Copper company intend to increase  the Mother Lode tonnage sufficient to  keep the smelter operating at full  capacity and turn out blister copper at  minimum operating costs. The smelter continues to ship a car of coppei  every day.

MANY HOLDERS  OF GRANBY STOCK  Over 2400- Dividend Checks  Are Mailed ,  The-recent checks for Granby Con,  solidated dividends were mailed to between 2400 and 2500 stockholders,  says a Boston report.  There are but 250 of the $100  shares remaining for the conversion of  the 2500 old shares of $10 par now  outstanding.  Stockholders of the company have  already authorized the issuance by the  directors ot 15,000 shales of treasury  stock, but with market conditions so  unp.opitiou:. as at present, it is unlikely that an attempt will be made to  raise $1,500,000 new money by this  means.

New Postage Stamps  The special postage stamps issued  in commemoration of the tercentenary  celebration at Quebec are now on  sale. The stamps are of most artistic  design, and are larger than the ordinary size, to allow of adequate repre-  se-itatio;i of historic scenes, portraits,  etc The description of each denomination is as follows:���Half cent, grey  picture of the Prince and Princess of  Wales; one-cent, green, portraits of  Chainplain and Cartier; two cent, red  King F.dward and Queen Alexandra;  live cent; blue, representation of L'Ha-  bitation de Quebec; seven cent, yellow,  pictures of Montcalm and Wolfe; ten-  cent, mauve, picture Quebec in 1700;  fifteen-cent, picture of the Parliament  of the west of the old regime; twenty-  cent, green, picture of a courier du  sois with Indians.

F. Rossa,  manager   of the   Dominion Copper company   waiupfrom l  Boundaiy   Falls  on  Thursday.     He  was inosi enthusiastic as to the' results  of operations at the smelter.   The new  furnace has been running without  the  slightest interruption since.being blown ���  in, and is   nowt,consuming., over  600  tons daily.    On Wednesday over ^50,^,  ions were treated.    Tbe furnace has a.,  capacity of 750 tons per day; but after  a series  of tests  the  best. results . in  va'ues can be obtained in treating from  600 to 650 tons daily.-  Plans are now being worked out for  the feeding of the two smaller furnaces  ,by"bucKets," "operating" "on   an" aerial  tram from the ore bins to the furnaces,  the latter being fed by   hand, ""If is^  the intention to instal the aerial 'Irani j  instead of the  trackage   system,   as   a/  much more economical plan of handling the ore," said   Mr.   Rossa.    It   is'  thought'that better results can be'had  from   systematic   distribution   of the-  flux.    The new bucket tram will also.'  have   an   advantage  in   carrying  the'  complete charge  ready   for   smelting.  M. M. Johnston, the consulting engineer, has  also  figured  on   the aerial  tram as an improvement   to   the pro-'  posed electric feed.  An aerial   tram" for'carrying  away!  slag from the furnaces-has   also   bpen  under consideration by the  company,  but Mr. Rossa stated that no definite  steps bad been taken in the proposition.  CONSERVATIVES  I NOMINATE GOODEVE  kosslahd   Man Will Oppose  ; Smith Curtis in Kootenay  ; The choice of the Kootenay Con- ���  ���se'fvativE' convention" held at 'Nelson  on Tuesday fell on A. S. Goodeve of  Rossland. There were 105 votes present out of a total of 108 for the whole  Dominion riding, 85 being personally  pr4>c��ot-_and the.rp.mninder by proxy.  The first choice of the convention  fell on J. H. Schofield, of Trail, member for Ymir in the legislature, who  declined. So also declined W.A. McDonald and R. S. Lennie of Nelson,  R. F. Green, of Kaslo, and C. H.  Mackintosh.  A ballot was taken between W. R.  Ross, M. L. A., of Fernie and Goodeve  of Rossland. The latter had it easily  and Ross moved that the vote be made  unanimous.  Mr. Goodeve was the first provincial  secretary of the McBride government.  He was defeated by J. A. Macdonald,  of Rossland, the Liberal leader. He  was twice mayor of Rossland and refused a petition for a third term.  A mass meeting in the opera house  in the evening was well attended.  Hon. W. J. Hanna, provincial secretary of Ontario, Martin Burrell of  Grand -Forks, and all the local members of provincial constituences in the  riding were present. Every confidence  in the defeat of the Liberal candidate  Smith Curtis, was expressed.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  July ��j.
