Rea, superintendent of the  Betts and Hesperus group, was a  visitor in I'hoenix this week, and gave  some particulars regarding the property,  which is now being actively developed.  A five drill Rand straight line air  compressor was recently installed on the  Betts and Hesperus group, situate about  three-quarters of a mile from the Athel-  stan mine, and a long tunnel to tap  the lode at depth is now being driven.  It is proposed to ship 200 tons of ore  per day, beginning early in the coming  spring, the tracks of the branch of the  Great Northern railway to Phoenix  being only 1,500 feet distant, and a  new wagon road extends from the main  workings to the railway. ���   ' ~'.\     '������  The development of this now well  known group was undertaken nearly  two years ago by a Chicago company.  organized by T. H. Rea, an experienced mining man, formerly of Ross-  and. There are 150 tons of ore on  the dump and an experimental shipment to the Granby smelter gave most  satisfactory returns, just how wide  tlie ore body is has not yet been determined. The capping consists of  decomposed lime and quartzite impregnated with copper stain, and it  appears to be from'seventy-five to one  hundred feet wide. The mineral zone  lies between a contact of diorite and  recently erected' a;cbvmpres'sor building,  boarding and bunk houses, store house  and < office,* .oblacksmithi shop; water  tank, and -laid ^600 feet of pipe' line.  The recently installed power plant is  being utilized in driving .t.he tunnel.  The'original group^ b^s* been increased  by the purchase of $ie J.ancaster and  Chicago fraction, embracing 50 acres  and giving right of? way. down the  mountain to the Great Northern track  along Fourth of July creek.

Boundary Mining Notes  roan,.,, enjoying  wide experience in Canadian and American-miriing'camps.^  The Betts and Hesperus claims were  purchased by the. present owning  company from John; A. Finch, the  wealthy mining operator, of Spokane,  who had previously;. done a large  amount of development work on the  properties. The equipment at the  mines has thus far cost l'le company  abont $10,000, and it is the intention  of the management t<? continue development until - the urines reach the  steady shipping stage.*  City Auditor   Submitted   His  - Report.  IT IS CLOSE TO  'porphyry and can be traced'across  both claims; in fact, half a dozen open  cuts, in addition to the main workings,  have disclosed the ore in place.  The first work was to run an open  cut 100 feet long through "wash" to  strike the ore body. When this had  been accomplished the miners then  ran in on the diorite foot wall, which  trends north and. south with a dip to  the east. Ten feet further in the workings, 18 feet wide, are all in ore with  no. hanging wall in sight. This part of  the workings was also extended 50  feet further in ore, and at the face a  winze, also in ore, was sunk 40 feet,  giving a depth of over 75 feet from the  surface on the slope of the hill.  If surface showings count for anything, the Betts and Hesperus will  soon rank as one of the big propositions in the Boundary, not only in regard to values but equally so in respect  of width. The ore is a typical sul  phide with a matrix of liine, iron and  silica in the proper proportions to  make it self fluxing. The lowest assay  obtained was $5 per ton. Several  yielded $60 per ton. Careful sampling  places the average value of the face of  the workings at $1 2 per ton in copper,  gold and silver in the order named.  The present main working is on the  Hells, about the centre of the claim.  In either direction for a distance of  nf about 1,500 feet a series of open  cuts along the ore zone have disclosed  ore of the same variety.  The continuity of the ore zone having been determined, the next step  was to start a new working tunnel farther down the hill, with the object of  cross-cutting the ore hody at a depth  of 275 feet. This big undertaking is  now well under way, and the tunnel  will huve a length of about 600 feet.  It is now in 45 feet, and, contrary to  expectations, ore was encountered before the tunnel had been extended 30  feet. The strike has greatly encouraged the management, as the belief  prevailed that ore would not be encountered until a distance of 250 feet  had been traversed. There is likelihood that the ore now in the face of  tunnel will he continuous as far as the  winze in the old workings, and with an  upraise from the long tunnel, is destined to connect. Should the ore zone  prove to be from 300 to 400 feet wide,  as is anticipated, the gtoup has every  prospect of growing into one of the  most important mining propositions in  the Boundary.  Two shifts are now at work. The  plant recently installed comprises the  Rand compressor referred to, and a 60  h.p.  boiler.    The company  has also  Province Mineral! Output for  J904>  Exceeds   that   for   1903  $2,274,046.  by  From Vicloi ia conies the report that  the ,total value of: the- minerals produced within the confines of iiritish  Columbia'doHng the year ended December 31st, 1904, was $19,770,000.  This was increase of $2,274,046 over  the amount for 1903.  The total amount of mineral produced other than coal in the year  amounted to $15,300,000. The  amount of eold produced, both from  quartz and placer, during the year that  has gone into the care of the historian,  was in excess of that of the year before.  In 1904 the amount of gold taken  from the earth amounted to $6,400,-  000; that secured in 1903 was $5,873,-  0361 slightly over $500,000 less than  that of the year just passed. The  silver product of the province in 1904  was also in excess of that of.--'thecyear  previous. The silver ouiput of 1904  was $2,200,000, which was $678,528  in excess of the year 1903, when the  amount of silver taken from the British Columbia mines totalled $1,521,-  472. The copper produced last year  was slightly in excess of ihat mined in  1903. During 1904 the total output  was $4,600,000. The lead mined in  1904 was valued at $689,744, a tola!  nnicri less than that of 1903; The  coal and coke produced in the pro.ince  were valued at $4,332,267, the amount  being the same as that mined in the  year that preceded.  The approximate statement of the  mineral output for the year 1904 is as  follows:   .  Gold $ 6,400,000  Silver      2,200,000  Copper     4,000,000  Lead     1,500,000  Miscellaneous        600,000  Mayor .Rumberger and Aldermen  Brown, Marshall and Roderick were  present at the weekly session of the  city council last Wednesday evening.  City Clerk 'Matheson read a letter from  the city clerk of Fernie, asking the  council to pass a resolution, to be pre  sented to the legislative assembly, to  amend the Municipal Clauses Act, giving power to municipalities to operate  their own telephone systems. The  matter was discussed and endorsed by  the council, and the clerk instructed  to draw up and send forward the resolution as requested. The resolution  grew out of the trouble now prevailing  in Fernie, where the B. C. Telephone  Co. is endeavoring to install a telephone system, when the council wishes  lo install-a municipal owned system.  ���The annual report ol Isaac Crawford, city auditor, was presented to the  council and accepted, and ordered  published in the'Phoenix Pioneer. It  will be found in another column of  this issue. The clerk reported receiving an acknowledgment from the attorney-general of the recommendations  of Thos. Roderick and Alex. McDonald for license and police commissioners lor the city.  Following are the accounts that were  ordered paid: Mclntyre & McDonald,  $38; Bank of Montreal, $153.45: I.  Crawford, $40; J. XV. Stewart, $21.50.  The sinking of a new'., two compartment shaft at the Emma mine, Summit camp, has just been started.  Last Saturday Supt.. Hodges blew  in the fifth furnace at tlie Granby  smelter, owing to a somewhat better  power supply.  Tenders arc to he asked for the  driving of a 3oo-foot tunnel on the  Gold Bug group.

Toronto, Jan. 25.��� The Ross' government went down to disastrous defeat today. At most the Liberal party  will have only 26 members in the new  legislature and some estimates place  the number at 25. So far as can be  learned tonight the new house will consist of 72 Conservatives and 26 Liberals. The Conservatives gained 28  seats held by the Liberals in 1902 and  the Liberals captured three only from  the Tories. Premier Ross barely escaped defea', only secureing a majority  of 30 in West Middlesex. Attorney-  Genetal Gibson and Minister of Agriculture Dryden were among the defeated. One of the surprises of the  campaign was the election of two Liberals in Ottawa.  The defeat of the Ross government  occasioned no sin prise bete, though  such a complete .snowing under had  not been looked for. It is too early  yet to announce what steps Premier I  Ross will take, but it is understood  ihat he will retire as quickly as possible and make wav for his successor,  J. I\ Whitney.  RAWHIDE MINE  IS AGAIN SHIPPING.  Work is proceeding on a crosscut  from the incline shaft on the Iron Clad,  in Wellington earnp;~owned by W. J.  Porter,  G. W.  Rumberger and J. W  Farrell7 -  The Knob Hill ten drill air compressor is now ready for use at th e  Granby' mines at any time that it may  be needed dining the, existing power  shortage at Cascade.  Next week the Skylark will ship a  car of high grade ore to the Nelson  smelter, to be followed by a car of second or third class ore a few days later  to the Granby smelter.  The sixth furnace at the Granby  smelter, now idle, is being repaired and  fitted with the machinery for the electric charging apparatus. The electric  chargers themselves have been shipped  from the factory in the east, and will  shortly arrive at the smelter.  Work on the 50 foot double compartment shaft contract on the Lancashire Lass, Summit camp, has been  nearly completed, only the timbering  yet remaining to be done. It is owned  by the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, and the shaft is sunk on the  ore body.  Figuring at the average prices prevailing for copper and silver during  1904, the Spokane Spokesman-Review  estimates the output of the Granby  smelter for that year at, $33,421,781.  This allows 57 cents per ounce for silver, 12.8 cents per pound for copper  and $20 per ounce for gold.  J. H. Trevorrow, formerly foreman  of the Snowshoe mine here, is now  sampling the Center Star and War  Eagle mines at Rossland, in view of  proposed ama Igamation of the Snow-  shoe, Le Roi, Center Star and War  Eagle. Professor R. D. Brock has  about completed his examination ofthe  properties.  Rich Skylark Camp Property  to be Worked.  Sending Out Five Cars Daily  To Smelter.  Last Saturday, all the repairs to the  Rawhide, as a result of the heavy blast  of a couple of weeks ago, that destroyed the tramway headworks, having been completed, the mine started  shipping once more to the Montreal &  Boston smelter at Boundary Falls.  At first the shipments were at the rate  of five cars daily, or about 150 tons.  But today or Monday, the second furnace at the smelter is expected lo he  blown in once more, when the shipments from the Rawhide will he doubled to ten cars daily.  While the repairs were going on at  the Rawhide, the No. 1 furnace at the  Boundary Falls smelter, which has  been in blast steadily since September  26th last, was blown out and the No.  2 blown in, ��iving an opportunity to  repair the No. 1 furnace.

M. Williams, an experienced  mining man of Montana. The group  of claims comprises the Royal Banner, Monitor, Monterey and Florence,  is owned by a Minneapolis company,  but Grand Forks people are heavily  interested.  It is now stated that the Morrison  mine, Deadwood camp, has been taken  over by the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, 30 shares of Morrison having been given for one of the new  company. The new company does  not buy the mine outright, as at first  contemplated, which was blocked by  some Morrison shareholders in the  courts, but secures a controlling interest in the Morrison by securing a sufficient number of shares. The shares  in the new concern, so Andrew Ltid-  law and Fred F. Oliver, who have  recently returned from the east, say,  are to be pooled until June 12th. The  new transfer is on a basis of about  four cents a share for Morrison.  This week another deal for a Skylark camp property was made, when  an option for a few days was given on  the Bay claim for $60,000, the option  to expire some time next  week.   The  property is owned by H. V. Fuller and  Mr. Hall, of Greenwood,  and  has a  most remarkable showing of free gold,  the   ore   in   the   40-foot shaft being  speckled all through and through with  particles of the  glittering  stuff.   The  claim is a very promising property, being located in the immediate vicinity  of the Silver King and Silver Cloud  and not far from the  Skylark,  and is  the only claim  so far discovered in  that locality in which the values are all  in gold.   For some time Messrs. Fuller and Hall have been developing the  Bay, and a short time ago increased  the force to three shifts.    About 40  tons of the ore that, it is   said,   goes  hundreds of dollars to the ton are on  the dump, although no smelter shipments have yet been  made.   Those  who have seen the Bay say that it is a  most promising prospect.  Tuesday a four horse load of people  from Grand Forks drove through  town, to inspect the Bay, returning the  same night to their smelter city homes.  Included in the party were Wm.Spier,  Dr. E. R.Northrup, Jeff Davis, Alex.  Fraser, R. J. McAhes and others. The  Bay is certainlyitr-good company in  its location, and those who know most  about it predict great things for the  property. If the option is taken up,as  anticipated, extensive work will at once  be inaugurated on the mine.  Presentation to Mr. and Mrt. R. B. Kerr.  Tuesday evening the members of  Phoenix Socialist League met in Miners' Union Hall the occasion being a  farewell to Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Kerr,  who are leaving Phoenix. After a  generous lunch, served by the lady  comrades of the league, Mr. and Mrs.  Kerr were each presented with a gold  fountain pen, engraved with the  Socialist emblem, a pair of clasped  hands, hearing the legend, "By this  sign we shall conquer."  Comrades Caulfield, Mills, Hasel-  wood and some others of the Greenwood league weie present and presented  Mr. Kerr with a banner bearing an  embellished address,and a meerschaum  >ipe.  After a most pleasant evening of  music, mirth and general good fellowship those present joined in singing,  "Will ye no come back again," and  "Auld Lang Syne" and dispersed to  their homes.

Last week the Sandon mines had an  output of 116 tons of ore  Insist week 923 tons of Slocan silver-  lead ore were shipped via Kaslo.  The initial run of the Cork concentrator, on Kaslo creek, will be made  early nc\t month.  J. J. Campbell, of the Nelson smelter, denies that his concern has raised  the rate on Slocan silver-lead ores.  It is not the intention of President  John Keen, of the Provincial Mining  Association, to call a meeting this year.  In the Lardeau the manager of the  Triune has arranged a system of profit  sharing with the miners working on  the property.  The LeRoi No. 2 has paid another  dividend of two shillings per share for  1904. The gross value of the ore put  through the concentrator last year was  $5,25 per ton.  Bruce White and associates are ne-  gotiationg a deat to acquire the Mackenzie interest Jn the famous Alpha  silver-lead mine at Silverton, the figures being around $100,000.  The Hall Mining and Smelting company are now erecting an addition to  their plant at Nelson in the shape of a-  Merton roasting furnace, which will be  completed and in active operation  within a month.  The shipment of ore containing lead  from the various mines in  the  Kootenay for the month of December were  as follows: Hall smelter 3,338,051 lbs.  of ore containing   1,407,927  lbs.   of]  lead.     Trail smelter 2,415,316 lbs. of  ore containing 1,088,330 lbs. of lead.  Carl R.

The shareholders of the Rambler-  Cariboo Mines, Ltd., at a meeting held  at Kaslo a few days ago decided to increase the capital stock of the company  to the extent of 500,000 additional  shares.

In all   towns where a newspaper is  published, every man should advertise  in it, if nothing more than a card stating his name and the business he is in.

As the result of studies on New Jersey mosquitoes last summer, Professor  John B. Smith of Rutgers College says  that not only will the insects travel  long distances from their breeding-  place, but on favorable evenings large  swarms rise and are carried during the  night by winds. The direction In which  they go is often seaward. Swarms have  been met fifteen miles from the shore,  and they are common live miles from  shore. Migration of mosquitoes with  the aid of the winds Professor Smith  regards as of much Importance, and  as rendering the control of the mosquito nuisance much more dlfllcult than  has been supposed.  Miss Florence K. Jewell, a wealthy  young Jewess, who attained notoriety  In August, 1899, by marrying Loben-  gula's son, while he was on exhibition  at the Kaffir Kraal at Earl's Court.  London, has applied for a divorce on  the ground of her husband's cruelty  and -misconduct. She testified that he  had given her black eyes, and stabbed  her with an assegai, wthen the Judge,  Sir Francis Jeune, broke in with:  "That was what you expected In marrying a savage, was it not?" The judge  reserved Judgment, as he doubted  whether It could be shown that Lobcn-  gula's domicile was in England. H��  said, too, that he only behaved like a  savage, and that the petitioner had insisted on marrying him, and now saw  the result of it.  The old proverb about honor: among  thieves has had a staggering blow in  St. Louis. The thieves were certain  members of the city council and a  number of street railway men, and It  was because neither side had any confidence in the honor of the other that  a remarkable oase of bribery was most  amusingly disclosed. The railway men  desired certain franchises, and put up  one hundred and thlrty-flve thousand  dollars as a corruption fund. They  were afraid, however, to pay It to the  councllmen until the council had  voted as they wished. The corrupt councllmen, on their part,  would not vote until they had the  money. By a compromise, therefore,  the fund was placed in a safety-deposit box which had two keys, one of  which was held by each party. Neither could open the box without the cooperation of the other. The councllmen  voted us they had agreed, and It was  through the quarrel over their attempt  to get the funds that the whole matter  became public.  *-  THE OBSERVATORY  Things T.ilkmo of ati,  llOUK AKU ULSKWHKKK  Fcrnie has been 'having a little war  of its own of late, and all over the introduction of that modern improvement, the telephone. It seems that  the B. C. Telephone Co., which has  exchanges all over - British Columbia,  and is practically tlie' only telephone  company doin^ business of any kind  in this prov nee, decided definitely lo  install an exchange7 in Ferine. So  George C. Hodge, the district superintendent, of Nelson, well known in the  Boundary, went oi-p-j, to see that the  work was done."1'1. So far, so good, hut  then came the fun.  Tho Fernic city council, to a man,  did not want the H. C.  Co.  to come  in, and they were hacked by a majority  ofthe qit'zens." SVa by-law was hi shed throui'li'the, couricil'pieventiiiiMhe  digging of post holes and the stringing  of wires in' the streets of  the. corporation.    But thai nia'de no difference to  Mr. Hodge!    He went right along and  dug holes, and the city had a force ol-  men following him,,filling in the said  holes.    Then Mr. Hpdge was,arrested,  fined $io, and- his men went back to  work.    Then Mr. Justice Morrison, of  the Supreme Court .at Vancouver, got  busy and issued an injunction preventing the city of; Fernie from interfering  for a couple of - weeks.    And at  last  accounts, so the matter stands���a sort  of an armed truce, with the Fernieites  all worked  up  over  the  proposition,  and determined;-; to  have a .municipal  owned  telephone"i system,'' or none at  ad.   , ,.;:7.7^,,,-/'L..-J..:-,-,.,''.'.  The charter of the B.C. Telephone  Co., it is said, allows the company to  erect poles and stnng;wires;in any city  or town in the: province, but subject to  the approval of ��� the municipal authorities. This is whaj they are working  under, and.think they will win,  ���.  CAPTAINS 01 Jl  NEVER WITH  **<HYe Me My Compass and ;  Pe-ru-na and I Will Steer  dear of All Wrecks."

A Tribute to Father Pat.  ~J~ RITING from Rossland. Q.  j       C, In reference to a recent  /       paragraph    in    "Saturday  NiKht"   on   the  career   ��t  the late "Father Pat," tho  Ro\. Charles W. Hedley aays that the  main point of his remarkable ministry  was not eccentricity, but a quite unique  self-sacrifice In the service of any who  needed  him.    "Unconventional he cer-  ttilnly was to a degree which might In-  de'.'d.  as    you    suggest,    shock   some  strait-laced people  in  Toronto,  but  in  an ago of worldllness and self-seeklnj  tie sought neither the world  nor seir.  but g:ive freely and  utterly  his time,  comfort, strength,' means, even at times  the  clothes off his  back,  to  those  In  need.   The 'best proof of the man is to  be   found   in   the   warm   regard   with  which Ills memory is treasured over the  wide   area   In   which   he  labored  as   a.  pioneer missionary.   He did adapt himself us few could have done to the tone  of  the  men  among   whom  chlelly  his  work  hiy; but while seemingly Indifferent to conventional details, he stood  for  the  main  elements  of  religion  ���  faith   In  God    the    Father,     the    redemption,  and   the   practical   brotherhood  of  man���and   he  lived    out  his  creed.    The  vices   which  Christ  most  sweepingty condemned were as fnr as  possible  removed  from  his  character,  whil6 on the other hand the pre-eminently Christian virtues werts his to a  remarkable   degree.     It   Is   due   to   no  mere eccentricity on  his part  that a  memorial  church  is   to be  ereoted  in  Rossland,   and    that    immediately  on  receipt of the news of ills death a spontaneous movement was made to erect  a public memorial, a movement which  has been widely supported by hundreds  of  contributors    of    all  classes    and  creeds."  In the Boundary, we have, had telephone fights enough, to last us for  years to come., At one time there  were three independent companies doing business ��� between I'hoenix and  Greenwood, and to keep in touch with  everyone, the Pioneeif among others,  had a battery of three different 'phones  on its office wall���a most unmitigated  nuisance. The companies scrapped,  and one swallowed; the other, etc., till  the present company had the field to  itself. And the dear public paid the  freight right through:   '������������-'  pretty helpless man.

He was finally advised to try Chamberlain's Pain Halm,  which he did and it effected a complete cure. 'Phis liniment is for stile by  all druggists.  Conscientious.

For sale by all druggists.        '  So, we say, in little towns telephone  fights are not profitable. Aside from  the right, or lack of right, of the U.C.  Co. to put in a system there, if it is  done by the city the chances are the  system will be a most indifferent one  at best, and will have no outside connections worth anything If it is done  by individuals the result is largely the  same. There is not business enough  in a town of 3,000 people to support  such a system properly and satisfactorily withoutputside.connections. '.Then  a company already having a dozen exchanges has a great advantage over  one little isolated concern, because it  can draw for men, material, etc., and  has had the practical experience���  most important of all.  ���<*  Wedo not think the 15. C. Telephone  Co.is all that it should be, by any means,  and sometimes the service they give is  exasperating to a degree. Hut wc have-  tried two other systems in this country, and we know what we are talking  about when we say that the present  system is by far the best so far tried  in this country, open to criticism as it  is, sometimes. Why, the Royal Bank  of Canada sunk about $125,000 in  backing up an opposition company in  the Boundary, that had first-class lines  ���the Columbia Co.���and could not  make it win. They could get no Nelson or Spokane connections worth  while, and no matter" how excellent, a  local system they had, they were handicapped.  ���H.  Vancouver had a fall of snow a few  days ago, and this is how the Province  referred-to it:  "The flaky white stuff that fell  around town this morning was not  goose feathers, as many people supposed, but a strange substance that is  known back east as snow. Snow he-  longs to the lain family, and sometimes  comes iu the fonn of hail. How it  came to be in this vicinity is a mystery.  It was an interesting and instructive  sight to see Vancouver people gathering it up in pails and bask.ts with the  idea of preserving it as a curiosity for  ihe benefit of their children and their  children's children in the days to come.
