The Oro Denoro mine, in Summit  camp, which attracted a good deal ofj  attention in the early railway day;; of  the Boundary because the grade to the  Phoenix-mines cut the ledge, has every  indication of being made an immens  and profitable mining proposition. The  King Mining Co., did considerable  work on the claim nearly four years  ago, but running out of funds, nothing  was done up to this spring. The  property was taken over by the Oro  Denoro Mines, Ltd., which Smith  Curtis, one of the large shareholders  in the old company, succeeded in organizing, and surface work was started  under the superintendence of R. H.  Anderson, who also has charge of the  J}. C, mine, less than a mile distant.  Mr. Anderson has had a small force of  men at work for some time and is  now in position to start shipments to  the Sunset smelter, with which provisional arrangements for treatment have  been made.  At this time when the Oro Denoro  is just beginning a peripd of activity,  it is interesting to note what lias been  done of late and the prospects for the  future.: Since the middle of April this  year work has been prosecuted continuously on three large ore bodies,  known as the magnetic iron vein, the  No. 1 tunnel vein and the No. 2 tun-  nel.v_in,^i".';-,'-���;."---���'���;'-"" ��� "���'>:' '";"  Beginning at the C, P. R,-railway,  the magnetic iron vein has been stripped for a distance of 60 feet, the ore  still dipping to the north, giving promise  of still greater width. In blasting  across this vein for a railway siding a  face of some twelve feet in height has  been made. Assays have proved that  practically all the ore disclosed is of a  good shipping grade.'  In front of the ore body on No. 1  tunnel vein a railway siding 270 feet in  length has been graded, some 70 feet  of good shipping ore having been  stripped on the upper side of the track,  diis work still being continued.1  _ The railway siding for the No, 2  tunnel vein has been stripped for 40  feet or more, and is now read)' for  tracklaying.  It is expected that railway sidings  will be put in at once by the C. P. R'.,  as already arranged for. Then shipments of about 50 tons daily can  be made until the 7-drill compressor  is installed, some time in September  next, when shipments can be easily increased to 200 tons, or more, per day.  The new plant will be capable of breaking down at least 350 tons daily, the  mining being in fact quarrying, and  the expense correspondingly low.  A gentleman thoroughly familiar wjth  the property recently said that he felt  quite safe in saying that with ore values holding out, the ore bodies .so far  stripped on the Oro Denoro will yield  00,000 tons of merchantable ore,  and that there is every probability of  the work showing more and more tonnage as it proceeds.  The officers of the Denoro Mines,  Ltd., are as follows : J. S. C. Fraser,  manager of the Bank of Montreal,  Rossland, President; Aulay Morrison,  M. ���!'., Vice-President: Smith Curtis,  Managing Director and Secretary-  Treasurer, and a Board of Directors  of the above and Henry Hart, a capitalist of Three Rivers, Que., and C.  i_. Hamilton, Rossland.  It is likely that John L. Retallack  will run in the liberal interest for Kaslo.  Next Thursdayevening the Phoenix  Liberal Association will hold its regular  semi-monthly, meeting, and a full attendance is requested.  J. F. Deane, editor and owner of the  Nelson News and Kamloops Sentinel,  is frequently spoken of as a candidate  at Kamloops on the liberal ticket.  In Grand Forks the liberal political  pot appears to have, boiled the number  of possible candidates down to three,  namely, W.H, P. Clement, Dr. West-  wood and a dark horse.  The following are mentioned as possible socialist-labor candidates in Greenwood riding: J, J. Caulfield, A. S.  Embree, Fred Hazelwood, Harry Parsons, Geo. F. Dougherty and M. Kane.

WANT MQRE QRXNBY SHARES,  Jofrn Manly Ihe Authority  J no. A. Manly returned this week  from an extended business trip to  Chicago and other Eastern points.  Mr. Manly made an important announcement that he has completed all  arrangements for erecting a smelter  near this ciiy. The details of the prospective enterprise, which has the kicking of ample capital, will be forthcoming shortly.���Grand Forks News-  Gazette.  American   Directors   Now   Considering the  Proposition.  John Stanton and other directors of  the Copper Range Consolidated company, returned last week from \ trip  |o B ri tjsh. ;. Col urn bi��l,'i, wh ere ,.t h ey inspected tne Granby Consolidated, the  largest Coppermine in British Columbia, says the New York Herald,  Mr. Stanton confirmed the report!  that he and his friends had acquired a  large interest in the property, and added that the western trip was for the  purpose of looking further into the  proposition with a view of taking a  larger interest, if not control. The  latter problem has not yet been determined, "It is a low-grade mine,"  said Mr. Stanton yesterday; "but there  are both gold and silver found, which  makes the refining more profitable."  According to Mr. Stanton, copper  consumers are about to enter the  market again, but on account of the  labor troubles, they are not showing  the same bullish enthusiasm as they  did earlier in the year. For immediate  deliveries, however, the market is pretty well cleaned up.  Start Building This Month.  Father Bedard has decided tq start  the work of building the no.w Catholic  church in Phoenix some time about the  middle of this month. The plans  hvue already been completed by Architect Curtis, and show a very neat and  commodious building, with a steeple,  in which will bo placed the boll which  has already arrived. The building  proper will be 22x52 feet inside, beside a vestry, and will probably cost  somewhere between $1,000 and  $2,000, It will seat about 200. Tenders for its erec'tion are now being  made, and the contract will be awarded  as soon as they are all in. The building will be located on the site purchased Inst year at the corner of  Second street and Grey Eagle avenue,  and will make another, ornament lo  that locality.  Will Hare Joint Installation.  Invitations areoul for joint installation  of officers of Snowshoe Lodge No. 46  and Boundary Valley Lodge No. 28,  the latter of Greenwood, which will be  held in Greenwood Tuesday evening,  July 14th. David Whiteside of Grand  Forks, will act as installing officer in  the capacity of district deputy grand  master for the Odd Fellows. The  next joint installation will take place in  Phoenix, probably in January next.  The special train that took passen  gers from Midway, Greenwood, Eholt  and Phoenix with over 200 on board,  left this place about 8 a. in., arriving at  Grand Forks a little after 10. In addition every team in town was pressed  into service.  At Grand Forks special preparations  had been made by the Grand Forks  Driving Park and Athletic Association  for a race meet in connection with other  events of the celebration. Some flyers  of note were there from other places  to the number of 15 or 20, the track  itself was in good shape, and large  numbers witnessed the speed events.  Wednesday's base ball game between  Greenwood and Grand Forks resulted  in a score of io to 5 in favor of the  latter. Thursday the Danville team  beat the Grand Forks, by. the close  score of 10 to 9, thereby securing first  money.  Probably the most interesting items  on the programme, were the hose reel  races, in which three teams werr entered���Grand Forks, Granby smelter and  Phoenix, The hub and hub race was  first, arid the Phoenix buys did not get  a chance to show what they could do  really, the harness breaking as the men I  started off. Thjs race was won by  Grand Forks, the smelter team, of  course, taking second money.  In the wet test Phoenix's boys made  an excellent run, but the nozzle men  failed to make connections, the time  being 25^ seconds. This race also  went to the two first-mentioned. The  members of the Phoenix team that  ran were as follows : Capt. Isaac Crawford, William Pierce, P. Cook, J. Han-  na, W. McMillan, Alex. Hall, H. Kid-  well, W. X. McDonald, Alex. Mui.roe,  Ed..O'Brien, James Church, Dan Mc-  Isaac and George Cole.  Capt. Crawford says he is satisfied  that his team can beat the time made  there, and in the hub-and-hub race,  had the harness not given away at the  start, it would have been an interesting  race. At the Labor Day celebration  here this fall it is hoped to have some  hose reel races, when the local team  will have another chance to show what  it can do,  It is not thought; that shipments  from the B. C. mine will be continued  much longer.  Shipments of . limerock from the  .Fife quarries to the Trail smelter have  been somewhat increased of late.  The delayed orders for locomotives  and cars for dumping hot slag, ordered  some months ago by the Boundary  smellers, are expected some time this  month.  It is now expected that the second  furnace at the Sunset smelter will be  blown in again next Monday, the coke  now coming in more free!)' than it did  a while ago.  It is understood that the International  Coal and Coke Co., which is development coal fields at Blairmore, Alberta,  and will supply coke in due time to the  Boundary smelters, has a force of 25  men at work.  The Granby smelter is expected  to have its fourth furnace in blast today, making the full battery. If  continuous alternative coke supplies  can be had, the four will be kept in  blast from now on, ���  The ore on the dump of the Morrison mine, Deadwood camp, has been  hauled to the railway and shipped to  the Greenwood smelter. The Ah  'There dump, near the Morrison, is  being treated the same way.  The last car of ore from the Waterloo, Camp. M.Kinney, netted $3,500,  and the mine will shortly enter upon a  dividend paying period. It is estimated  that the cleanup for the month ending  July 15th will be from $8,000 to  10,000.  .��� Ore is being hauled from the Athel-  stari to the Winnipeg spur of the C.  P. R., and thence taken to the Boundary Falls smelter. Foreman Oxley is  getting out and shipping about a car  of ore per day for the present. Just  three cars-have been shipped thus far.  : L.Y. Birnie, O.B^-Srnith, Jr.,_ \V.;  L. Germaine, Dr. R. B. Boucher and  William H anna, all of Phoenix, are  developing the Ajax claim, located  within a stone's throw of the Greenwood smelter, and now have a shaft  down 14 feet. The property is in the  high-grade belt.  JOHN RIORDAN  IS THE NOMINEE  Socialist   Candidate   in  This  Riding. .  CONVENTION WAS AT GRAND FORKS  P.oenl.

As soon as preliminary prospecting work is completed, including  the opening up of the live-foot seam  on the Wiseman claim, a diamond drill  plant will be installed. Four seams  outcrop on the company's lands, which  embrace over i 3,000 acres. A wagon  road and trail now extends from here  to the coal fields.

A letter was read from  Dr. Sehon, city health officer, asking  for $15 more for services claimed to  have been performed, but the counci  did not see it that way. The following  accounts were ordered paid: N. L?  mieux, $iS; Pioneer Pub. Co., $io,So,  taking prisoners to jail, $5,  Selling Shan s In No. 7.  A report from Greenwood states that  the No. 7 Mining Co., Ltd., owning  a group of mineral .claims near Greenwood, is offering for sale 24,000 shares  of its treasury stock, the proceeds to  be used in payment for improvements  already made, in still further developing tthe company's No. 7 mine; and to  install and equip a concentrating plant,  to enable the company to concentrate  its own ores, and to provide working  capital. The No. 7 group includes the  No, 7 mine, and the Glasgow fractional,  Helen, Lady of the Lake, McGregor,  and Rob Roy claims, all adjoining.  The No. 7 mine has been opened up  under the direction of Mr. Frederic  Kefler, general manager for the B. C.  Copper Company. As a number of  shareholders in the No. 7 company also  hold shares in the B. C. Copper Co.,  an amalgamation of the two companies  is favored by some, if an equitable  basis of absorption by the stronger  company of the No. 7 can be arranged.  The No. 7 company is capitalized at  $1,000,000, in   200,000  shares  at $5  Drop in and see Jack  Bowerman at  the Cottage Hotel.  Yesterday the socialists of this riding met in convention at Grand Forks,  and honored John Riordan, of Phoenix, with the nomination for assembly  representative at Victoria. This is the  first nomination made by any of the  political parties in Grand Forks riding,  and Mr. Riordan is undoubtedly the  strongest man. that they could have  selected.  ;���. The convention was composed of  14 delegates of whom eight were from  Phoenix, as follows : W.H. Bambury,  John Riordan, Dan Mclntominy, N.  Lemieux, John Carson��.A. D. McKenzie, Alex,"Munroe and Wm. Hall.  The,following were chosen as an  executive committee, who will have  charge of the campaign : James Harris, of Grand . Forks, chairman; W.  H. Bambury, of Phoenix, secretary;  Alex. Munroe, of Phoenix, treasurer.  John Riordan,. the * nominee, has  been a resident of Phoenix for, four  years, and has been the secretary of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8 since its  organization. He has been a member  of the city council for two terms, and  now holds that position. Mr. Riordan  has the respect and confidence of all  who know him, and is the best man  the socialists could have put up. The  executive committee expects to enlist  the hearty'sympathy and assistance of  ali-therlabor organizations in the riding. -'  Candidates Nominated.  Isknd���T.; W.

Since Lee E. Tutt purchased the  Grand Forks News-Gazette, that paper  has shown no little improvement. There  was room for it.  An aftermath of the recent visit of  America's noted copper experts to  Phoenix, is that Boundary's great mines  are attracting more attention today  than ever before in leading American  copper circles. It is the kind .of attention that counts, too.  A number of reports have been  printed recently that the coal miners'  strike at the Ladysmith Dunsmuir col  lieries had been declared - off, and that  the'men had' been starved into accepting the terms offered. As yet, however, these reports have not been confirmed.  Last Wednesday the Dominion of  .Canada, as if is now known, _was 36  years old. It has been a period of remarkable growth and progress, from  the Atlantic to the Pacific, and particularly on the Pacific slope. It is safe  to assert, that another 36 years will  see even greater advances all over this  broad dominion.  Several silver-lead experts have been  airing their ideas in Kootenay papers of  ' late on the question of smelter charges  for treatment. But the-apologists for  the Kootenay smelters have yet- failed  to adduce a good reason why the  smelters should charge $7 per ton  more today than they charged three  years ago. In the Boundary country  the smelters have reduced, instead of  . increased, treatment costs in the same  time.  From telegrams published in the  Rossland Miner it appears that the  large British commercial party, which  will visite Canada this fall, did not  place Rossland on the itinerary, but  had the Boundary as a special objective point. Evidently the fame of  Boundary's mines and smelters is  spreading across the seas, but the party  will make a mistake, just the same, if  it leaves Rossland out entirely.  Celebrations are good things in more  ways than one. They give an opportunity for the workers in all lines to  take a brief relaxation from the humdrum affairs of everyday life, and enjoy themselves for a day or two. They  also bring the people of a district together) from which, of course, the  place of celebration receives a distinct  benefit. Let us have more of such  occasions. It is well for the country,  and well for the people in general and  particular.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Improvement, Any Way���No matter which party wins, it will be an im-  provent on previous conditions in this  province.���Cranbrook Herald.  Should be Inbictkd. ���The Associated Press should be indicted. The  number of times it has killed His Holiness, the Pope, is really astonishing.���  Victoria Colonist.  A sentimental editor back in Kansas asks, "'Are there any sweeter words  in the English language than these,  'I love you ?"' Whereupon a Kootenay editor rises to remark: "Perhaps  not, but the words, 'Here's that dollar  I owe yon on subscription,' are not  lacking in delightful enunciation to the  ear of the average hard working newspaper man."  ' ���������  Some men have close calls to being  made rich, as witness the following anecdote in connection with Rossland's  greatest mine:  In the early development of the Le  Roi mine, a certain well known St-  Paul gentleman drew his check for  $5,000 to pay for a one-fifth interest in  the property, but before it was turned  oyer his dear good friends" persuaded  him not to complete the transaction.  Later, as is well wnown, the mine was  sold in London for $5,000,000. The  advice of his friends cost him almost  a cool million dollars. It was a narrow  escape.  Ml  An exchange thinks that these be  strenuous times for editors. The  Ymir Mirror man is being lambasted  through the columns of the Nelson  News by an abitious politician, upon  whose corns he trod. But the poor  fellow on the Rossland World got the  worst deal. He poked fun at the idea  of holding a 4th of July celebration in  his city and got badly jumped on for  his joking. In the course of the scuffle the Rossland editor had a chunk  bitten out of his neck, and had the  small satisfaction of seeing his assailant get three months besides a fine.  The O/anogram, started a few weeks  ago by Wm. MacAdam and R. T.  Lowery, formerly of the Slocan country, has already succumbed to the  chilly reception accorded it on the  coast, and Vancouver js short just one  weekly paper. It appears that the  people in that locality were not, after  all, hankering after that particular style  of journalism, and Col. Lowery has retraced his steps to the Kootenays, and  will publish his monthly Claim at Nel  son.  ���in  While speaking of the troubles and  incidents of an editorial career in British Columbia, it is noteworthy that  J. A. McKelvie, of the Vernon News,  has broken into jail���and a new jail,  at that.    He was appointed warden of  the institution.  ���ii  From these little incidents it will be  noted that there are  times  when   the  thought molders of the interior of this  fair  province   find   things   decidedly  strenuous.    They find other things to  do besides clipping coupons.  u%  Speaking of country editors reminds  us that one ot  them  in  writing  on  trusts says that the country newspaper  combine is the biggest  trust on earth.

Beaudier.  Operations have been resumed at  the Ruth concentrator in the^ Slocan.  The Old Homestead group, near  Camborne, was recently ". bonded by  .W.-B. Pool.'  ; The payroll in the; Crow's Nest coal  camps for the month of May amounted  to $115,203.So.  ': One hundred men are actively employed in the mines and stamp mills  at, Camborne.  The silver-lead miners are looking  for a substantial bonus, on lead from  the Dominion government.  A stamp mill is to be installed on  the Pilot at Ymir; the ore is free-milling, running from $10 to 104.  The concentrator at Silica is proceeding steadily at work on ore from  the! War Eagle and Centre Star.  After a temporary shutdown, due to  the heavy snowfall last season, not a  few Ymir properties are resuming work.  The miners in Burnt Basin and  Murphey Creek are agitating for more  wagon roads. There is activity in  their districts. !  Shipping from the Jumbo, one  of'������Rossland's well-known properties,  is to be stance! at once to the North-  port smelter.  It is asserted "that the Crow's Nest  collieries are expected to output 4,000  tons of coal daily in July. The coke  production is not mentioned.  Excellent coal has been discovered  at the 550 foot level in the Iron Mask  mine, near Kamloops, a well-known  copper property. ���,  Fifteen furnaces and stacks are liept  running on Kootenay and Boundary  ores, ��� six in the Boundary, three in  Kootenay and six at Northport.  A matting plant is talked of for the  Portland group in Aspen Grove camp,  in the Similkameen. Indiana capitalists have been developing the Portland  with gratifying success.  The LillooetyFraser River and Cariboo Gold Fields, Ltdi, which is in  liquidation, is offering the Neta, which  is in Brown's camp, Boundary, the  Queen of Spades, Central camp, and  some Rossland, Trout Lake and Ille-  cillewael crown granted claims for sale  by tender.  The Boscowitz interest in die" Bri-  tannia mine, Howe sound, was purj  chased the other day by Butte and  Salt Lake investors who held the controlling interest. Several adjoining  copper properties owned by Los Angeles capital were sold to London people at $100,000..    -.'      :  A stampede to the Lardeau commenced last week, due to the find of  $11,000 gold ore by Marquis and Gilbert, two prospectors.

Walker recently wrote  the following about the Granby mines  in this camp in the Boston Commercial, and it is believed that his statement was well within the facts:  Granby  Consolidated  is  described  by those who have recently inspected  it as a mining proposition of tremendous possibilities*.    Its ore body is fully  proved for 2,500 fetjt In lonyth by 400  feet wide and 300 feet deep, making  a total  of   fully   20,000,000 tons  in  sight.    This'ore is not broken by dikes  or  other rock intrusions, and  carries  just enough iron, sulphur, silica, etc.,  to make it a perfect smelting proposition.    It is figured out that it can be  mined atacr/st of $1   per ton, and it  is believed that   it can ultimately be  smelted for-another dollar   per   ton,  though this is yet to be demonstrated.  The ore has a value of $4.50 to  $5   per ton,   yielding  from 25 to   27  pounds of fine copper  and   $1.7.5 in  gold and silver.    It costs from   1 1-2  to 1 3-4 cents per pound  for refining  and   freight on  the  bullion from the  time it leaves the smelter till it is ready  for sale in the  market  at  New York.  If the ore can be handled and all costs  met with a total expenditure of $3.50  lor each ton, therefore, it will represent  only a 7 cents per pound cost for the  copper.  The company now has four furnaces  and is installing two more. The six  will be capable of treating 2,000 to  2,500 tons of ore per day. With copper selling at 14 1-2 conts per pound  there should be a net profit of $1.80  per ton on the ore treated, or at the  rate of $1,296,000 to $1,620,000 annually, equivalent to better than a dollar per share on the company's outstanding stock. ' '  At present smelting operation;? are  curtailed by inability to get an adequate  supply of coke. This'trouble will be  remedied shortly. Coke costs $6.50  per ton at the smelter. Miners are  paid $3.50 per day and surface men  $3. It is the plan of the management to continue smelter operations  as at present until the matter of costs  has been fully demonstrated, after  which the question of doubling the  number of furnaces will receive attention. In the meantime additional exploratory work is being done.  It is declared that the estimate of  20,000,000 tons of ore in sight is very  conservative. It is based on a measurement of 2,500 feet in length and a  depth of 300 feet, while a shaft is already down 100 feet deeper, and in  ore all the way. Mr. John Stanton believes the Granby will make its copper  at a cost of 7 cents per pound.  The great Boston and Montana copper mines in Montana ship 4,500 tons  of ore to the smelters every .day.  Tungsten, a rare and valuable mineral, worth $1 per pound, has been  found in the Meteor in the Slocaii.  The city of Los Angeles,--.California,  is making every "preparation to entertain the American Mining Congress.  At ihe present there are 157 mines  on the Rand, with others'in process of  formation, particularly deep# level  companies.  The famous Ontario mine, at Park  City, Utah, which has produced oyer  $33,000,000 and has paid nearly $14,-  000,000 dividends.  Last year the creeks in the Klondike produced over $12,000,000 in  gold. This year it is almost universally believed the output will reach  $15,000,000, and may go higher.  l.ist week's Rossland ore shipments  were as follows : Le Roi, 4,530; Center Star, 1,560; War Eagle, 1,170;  Kootenay, 240; Le Roi No. _, 580;  Velvet, 100; Giant, 90; I. X. L-, 40;  total, 8,310; total for year, 179,837  tons.  The Black Diamond Tunnel company, Ltd., has been registered as an  extra-Provincial company to operate  in the Ainsworth district. The head  office of the company is at Dover,  Delaware, U. S. A,, and the capital is  $1,000,000.  It is estimated that 14 companies in  the Lake district, Michigan, will produce 472,000,000 pounds of fine copper this year, at an average cost of 8^  cents per pound. At an average selling price of 14^ cents the profit will be  5^ cents per pound, 67 per cent above  operating costs.  The new 8-hour law passed by the  legislature of Arizona, and which went  into effect June 1, has disorganized  things somewhat in certain sections of  the territory, though the trouble so far  has been confined mainly to Graham  county, and some of the smaller canips  in Yavapai county.

During his traveling about  and afterwards in rami ing upon hi��  claim, he eneountered much bad water  which, togeih'r with tie seve e heat,  gave him a very severe diarrhoea which  it seemed almost-impassible to check,  and along in June the ease became so  hal lie expected to die. One day one of  his neighbors brought him one small  bottle of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera  and Diarrhoea Remedy as a lai-t hope.  A big dose was given him while he was  rolling about on Ihe ground in great  agony, and in 11 few minutes the dose  was repeated. The good effect of the  medicine was soon noticed and within  an hour the patient was taking bis first  sound sleep for a fortnight. That one  little bottle worked a complete cure, and  he cannot help feeling grateful. The  season for bowel disorders being at hand  suggests this item. Sold by all druggists.

In the  Mining  Camp  Sitter Shoe Advertising  Shoe Externals  Short talks by tbe Slater Shoe ad man,   No. 5.  External Shoe beauty is simply a  matter of perforation and polish���in most  shoes.  Permanent beauty of form and finish  are results of the same methods which  secure to the shoe length of wear and shape  retention viz:���invisible perfection of internal  workmanship.  The " Slater Shoe " with the prestige  of years of systematic advertising can afford  to take no chances by skimping the internal  economy of its make up���can not risk tampering with the fixed rules of standard workmanship. "���  The " Slater Shoe" has a name and  the prestige of a valuable trade mark to  maintain-T-they represent much cold cash in  the assets of the makers���therefore both  name and prestige are sustained by making  the " Slater Shoe " in every particular equal  or better than the claims its makers advertise for it.  Again proving the protection which  "Slater Shoe" advertising gives to the  wearers of  The Slater Shoe  Made in Canada 40 years.   Goodyear Welted.  For men $4.00 and $5.50.
