L.  Martin Returns  Coeur d'Alenes.  From  Joseph L. Martin, president of thu  Carney Copper Co., returned this week  from a trip of inspection to the Coeur  d'Alene country, in Idaho, where he  has valuable interests in a mining way.  While absent he visited the property  of the Carney Copper Co., near Mullin,  and another contract for 250 feet of  tunneling was let, this time to W. C.  Hower, J. O. Church, both formerly of  Phoenix, and their associates.  Manager Greenough, of the Carney,  is one of the most enthusiastic of the  shareholders of the property, which  consists of a number of likely copper  claims in a group, and he insists that  the Carney has today a much better  showing than the Snowstorm, in which  he has a large interest, had at the same  stage of development. As is well  known now, the Snowstorm is paying  dividends at the rate of three per cent  monthly regularly, with the likelihood  of its being increased to five per cent  each thirty days in a short time.  As one indisputable evidence of the  confidence had in the Carney group in  the Coeur d'Alenes, Mr. Greenough  points out that the men who are working in the property have asked for the  privilege of taking part of their pay in  shares of the company at the market  price.  Mr. Martin says that it is the in  tendon to begin making shipments of  ore from the Carney at the earliest possible date. He is satisfied that the  Carney is today one of the best things  in the Coeur d'Alene district, for the  amount of work that has been done in  development.

Joe Taylor made his home in Wellington camp, a couple of miles west  of Phoenix, where he was interested in  a number of promising crown granted  mineral claims. He had lived there  practically all alone for several years,  being frequently in town, however. He  leaves two brothers in Missouri, one  of whom is expected to come out here  and look after the estate.  Scandinavians Elect Officer*.  Jack Munroe at Co-slt.  An exchange has the following about  Jack Munroe: "Jack Munroe, the erstwhile exponent of jabs and counter-  jabs in the prize ting, is in Haileybury,  Ont., where it is said he is engaged in  furthering the good of the mining  cause."  Munroe will be remembered by  residents of Phoenix of a few years  ago, when he was employed at the  Granby mines and gave the city police  trouble when he had imbibed too  much of the Stuff thai-cheers and. also  inebriates. Later he'entered the fistic  arena, and challenged some of the big  ones, lasting pretty quick in the halls  of pugilistic fame.  Important Band Meetlnf.

From David Whiteside, giving advice regarding the taxing  of railway property in the city limits,  which letter was filled..  The board of works was ordered to  proceed with the,' necessary work of  widening, grading and Burning Phoenix  street, permission having been received  from the Dominion Copper Co. to use  a small strip of land for this purpose.  The board of works was also instructed  to open up the alley east of Second  street, between Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill avenues.    ,,.

SNOWSHOE IS  A BUSY SPOT  Shipping 700 Tons of  Ore Daily.  And  Preparing     For  Greater Increase.  Still  In common with all the other copper  producers in the Boundary, the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of  Canada, Limited Liability, is making  every preparation to ship the ore of  "the Snowshoe mine on an increasingly  extensive scale. In fact, the mine,  under Supt. Chas. Biesel and Foreman Bob Fraser, is doing pretty well  right now, the average for the last  week being over 700 tons daily.  As fast as possible, the mine is being  operated by electricity, the other half  of the big air compressot having been  ordered some months since and being  now due. The trolley in the tunnel  level is doing the best of work, all of  the ore being shipped just now coming  out of that opening.  Extensive surface work is also going  on at the Snowshoe mine, and raises  have been made from the tunnel level  below, the ore being thus dropped  readily and handled entirely by gravity  and the trolley. The overburden or  waste is being removed where this is  necessary and an immense available  tonnage is being thus added to the  property. Besides this, the old glory  holes, worked two or three years ago  under the A. J. McMillan management, will be placed in use again  before long, thus giving another outlet, as this ore can be shipped from the  original ore bunkers of the property.  In every direction at the Snowshoe  there is the most intense activity, and  upwards of 100 men employed are a  busy lot indeed, giving evidence that  the output from this mine will be  materially increased at-an early date.  1 he ore now goes entirely to the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Greenwood smelter,  under contract.  Ob-ervln_ Ibe Holiday..  There was not much enthusiam  about observing the holidays this week.  Monday being Dominion Day, the  public offices and stores were closed  as usual on such days, but the mines  and smelters worked as usual���probably because the employees had had all  the vacation they desired during May,  when most of them were idle. Grand  Forks had a celebration, with some  races and a few sports, and the base  ball team and a few others went down.  The base ball boys played with Dan  ville, and were beaten. A number  also took in the Nelson celebration,  which is reported to have been one of  the best of the seventeen held in that  city.  Thursday was Fourth of July, and  the neighboring towns of Oroville and  Republic, Wash., both had big times,  getting a few from the Boundary.  Boundary Mining Notes  There are still positions in the  various mines of the Boundary for good  machine men.  In the Little Bertha shaft a depth  of rso feet has been obtained, with a  four-foot ore showing.  Snowshoe's biggest week for shipments is that just past, when the total  exceeded 5,010 tons of ore.  Diamond drilling was resumed at the  Snowshoe mine last Monday by  Knight & Stone of Spokane  f .A(orcepfismen isnow employed  at the * CSn_K30^cl_ir.n^"Tri.n_i���and"  this is likely to be increased shortly.  Ore is being taken out from directly  beneath the C. P. R. track at the Snow-  shoe mine, necessitating timbering for  safety.  A number of options have been given  recently on mineral claims in this camp,  the details regarding which are expected to be ripe in a short time.  This week's Boundary smelting record exceeds last week's and makes a  new high water mark for the three  reduction works���38,090 tons.  Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter has  , a new  record   this   week, 5,845   tons,  and this though  one furnace is down  to permit rearrangement of a settler.  Granby had eight furnaces in blast  one day this week, but for lack of ore,  due to the railways' inability to handle  it, the eighth had to be blown out again.  N. Angngnon, foreman at tbe  Providence mine, has resigned to  accept a similar position at the British  Columbia Copper Co.'s B. C. mine in  Summit camp.  Last Saturday, the Granby Co. paid  its seventh dividend, amounting to  $405,000, being at the rate of three  per cent quaitcrly on the issued capital  of 135,000 $100 shares. This makes  a total of $2,563,630 paid in dividends  by the Granby Consolidated to date.  This week the B. C. Copper Co.  smelter treated 13,226 tons of ore as  follows: Custom, 4,095 tons: Mother  Lode, 5,410 tons; Napoleon, 330 tons:  Oro Denoro, 3,391 tons. The June-  record for this smelter, 44,584 ton;:, is  a new one, but Tuly promises to show  around 60,000 tons treated.  Last Tuesday, July 2d, was the date  of the second shareholders' meeting  of the Phoenix Amalgamated at Sher-  brooke, Que., to ratify the transfer of  the property to a strong concern. No  word has been received yet as to the  results, but the Pioneer predicts that  operations will be started on the properties within two weeks.  Last Thursday the new No. 3 ore-  crusner, located at the Granby's Victoria shaft headworks, was turned over  for the first time. It is of the giant  type, taking a piece of ore 36x42  inches, two of which are now in use by  the Granby, and another of which has  been ordered for the same company's  Gold Drop outlet. The Victoria  crusher is operated by two 75 h p.  electric motors.  Diamond drilling has been discontinued for the present at the Granby  mines, but will be resumed before  long. Meantime Boyles Bros, will do  some drilling at the Holden mine,  Lake Chelan, Wash., on which J. 1".  Graves and associates have an option.  It is understood to be a large copper  proposition, but at present inaccessible  as far as transportation is concerned.  Last Saturday morning Joe Taylor,  the veteran prospector of the Boundary, passed away at the Phoenix  General Hospital, after being there a  couple of weeks, suffering at first from  paralysis and later from pneumonia  complications. His age, 66 years,  made it a foregone conclusion that he  would never leave the hospital alive.  The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the Presbyterian church,  Rev. Samuel Lundie officiating, the  burial taking place at the Phoenix city  cemetery. A large number turned out  to pay the last respects to Taylor, many  old timers being Irere to attend. The  pill bearers were P. J. Dermody, Tom  Walsh, W. J. Nelson, John Myers,  Adolph Sercu, and Tom Kirk, and a  a large number of Phoenicians were  also present.  Joseph Taylor was born in central  Missouri about the year i83r, and  went all through the Civil War in the  rebel army, being in the escort of  General Price, and never being seriously wounded. After the war Taylor  gradually drifted west, being along the  line of the Union Pacific when it was  being constructed. ��� In the early 58os  he reached the Wood river mining district in Idaho, when the gold excitement was on, and did the same thing.  Later he came to the Colville country  in Washington and was one of the lo-  caters of the Bonanza mine at Boss-  burg, a property that was then thought  to be a bonanza indeed.  In July, 1891, he and G. W. Rurnberger, a life long friend, came into the  Boundary, at a time when there was  not even a trail in the country, let  ^lone.a_wagon road or, railway., Joe  was the discoverer of the* Brooklyn  mine in this camp, now owned by the  Dominion Copper Co., from which  more than 150,000 tons of ore have  been shipped. When this and other  claims were sold to the McKenzie-  Mann syndicate, Joe realized perhaps  $20,000 from   the  sale, as   his  share.  j At the meeting held June 23d, the  Scandinavian Brothers elected new  officers, as follows: President, Andrew  O.Johnson; vice-president, Carl Mel-  mer; secretary, Emil Carlson (re-elected); assistant secretary, Frank Peter- ,  son; treasurer, Frank Lundemo (reelected); marshal 1, Oscar Fernstrom;  chaplain, Frank Anderson; guard,'Olle  Nordin; trustee, Gus Johnson.  The above officers will be installed  at the next meeting of the organization,  to de held on Wednesday' next. It is  the intention of the Scandinavian Brothers to affiliate with the Scandinavian  Aid and Fellowship Society, the head  office of which is located at Ironwood,  Michigan. Steps are now being taken  with that object in view.  Mclver-Jobnson W.ddln_.  John Mclver and Miss Olga Johnson were married last Saturday afternoon in the parlors of the Hotel  Brooklyn, the groom being supported  by John Mclnnis, M.L.A., and the  bride by Miss Christina McDonald.  The only witnesses were James Marshall and wife, the happy couple leaving that day for a short -honeymoon,  which was spent at Nelson. They  returned this week and have gone to  housekeeping on lower Dominion  auenue. Mr, Mclver is employed by  the Dominion Copper Co.  Bolldl__ A (food Bridie.  John A. McMaster returned Monday from a week's trip to Gloucester  camp, where he is having development  done, with, encouraging results thus  far. Mr. McMaster states that E;  Spraggett, the government road superintendent for Grand Forks riding, who  is spending $2,000 on the extension of  the Franklin camp road to Gloucester  camp, will'be done in anotherweek^or  two, the new extension being of great  benefit to those interested in Gloucester.

The metal selling agencies, however,  point to the fact that copper production is not keeping up with consump  tion, and, therefore there can be no  great cut in the prices of the red  metal for ihe present. As there was  no considerabe demand for the metal  for immediate use, the market has  been sluggish.  .

Mr. Hemenway has fora year or two  been connected with a prominent bank  at  Portland, Oregon,  and  his   many  friends will be pleased to hear that he  has been promoted to be cashier of the  First Bank of Joseph, at Joseph, Oregon.

The Pioneer Wohders-  salanesin almost every line of effort have  been increased, manufacturing has  grown to remarkable proportions, and j  to crown it all, the crops of the country  have never" been" in better condition'  nor at better average prices than at  present.  .   While the stock market has suffered  a relapse and much of the water  has  been squeezed out of many stocks and  bonds, including railway,  mining and  and  industrial   securities, the largest  concerns report a continuous  increase  of   business,   and    are   pretty    well  pleased at the outlook,  as   well  they  may. be.    The universal prosperty has  been discounted in the share  marjeet  in the advanced price, of securities,  following   which  they  dropped to  a  lower  level.    While  there  is a   tendency in  financial  centers   to curtail  loans to some  extent,   there  is  little  reason to  think   that   we   have   yet  reached the turn of the financial road,  but that the  present  prosperous conditions will prevail for  some  time  to  ��� come.  At the same time it is well for those  interested to set their houses in order,  for sooner or later there will be a re  cession that will be marked, even if  prosperous conditions do continue for  a year or two, more or less, before the  real shrinkage begins.

Property   can   be   had   at  reasonable figures, and houses  costing  say from $500 to $800 each can easily  be rented for $10 and $15 per month,  netting, after paying all fixed expenses,  from   12   to   20  per   cent   annually.

For a month or  so past comparatively little copper has  been sold to the large consumers, ihey  having  placed  orders  earlier  in  the  year for their needs up to midsummer.

Why a man like Orchard, who  claims to have accepted pay from the  W.

While absent Mr. Deane made  the most of his time, going not only to  his old home in Sussex, but also to  other parts of the Tight Little Isle.  He returns to Phoenix better satisfied  than ever that British Columbia is the  place to live, and he would, not make  his home again on the other side of  ihe water for any consideration.  Mr. Deane travelled both ways  across the ocean via New York, going  by the White Star line and returning  by the Cnnard line. On the trip back  there were about 4,000 people on the  steamer, 3,000 of whom were in the  steerage, and to get accommodations  one must speak one or two months  ahead. Rut for that fact, Mr. Deane  would have taken one of the new  C. P. R. Atlantic liners.  While on the other side, Mr. Deane  went to the great Derby races, where  he says it was estimated that about  i,ooo,o_o people were present. He  iilso visited Buckingham Palace and  Windsor casilc, and among oiliei  niiltililt'S ihM Ik* saw were Kim; Ed-  x.'ird nnd I.ily l.an^liy. Speaking ol  travelling, Mr. Deane s;i\s that the  l.njjlish railwii).s are the thing for  speed. From London lo Liverpool is  204 mill's and the train covered the  distance at better than a mile a  minute, and does it regularly. The  accommodaiions are generally very  good on ihe railways.  Speaking of conditions in England,  Mr. Deane .aid that it is growing  harder, and harder eacli year for a man  with any ambition to get ahead in that  country. Wages are very low, and the  great concerns are steadily crushing  out the smaller ones, so that it does  not surprise him to see the thousands  that are coming to this side of the  water, so much so that the capacity of  the steamship companies is constantly  taxed to the utmost.  Compared to the eastern part of  Canada or the United States, Mr.  Deane says the west is far ahead in  every way, according to his idea. The  heat when he was in New York city  was terrific, there being three deaths  from it that day. with dozens of prostrations. He was glad to get back to  the Boundary, in short, bringing his  sister and her husband with him from  the old country.  MEETING OF  SNOWSHOE CO.  Held  in   London  June 13.  on  Ore Runs  .08 oz. Gold, .3 oz.  Silver,  1.4% Copper.  The report of the Snowshoe Gold  and Copper Mines, Ltd., for the year  ended 30th September, 1906, to be  presented at the meeting on 13th inst.,  states that during the greater part of  the year the Snowshoe mine remained  closed down, pending the completion  of satisfactory arrangements for dealing  with the property, and consequently  the accounts show a further loss, says  the Critic (London). As the shareholders have already been informed,  an agreement was signed on 23rd June,  1906, leasing the mine to the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company  of Canada, Ltd. tinder this agree,  ineiit, rather n?ore than 6,ooo tons of  ore had been sen. to the smelters at  September 30th, averaging approvi-  mately .08 or., gold, .3 oz. silver, and  1.4 per cent copper. The1 total royalties received have amounted to ^1,-  997 upon the shipments made under  this agreement.  Since the close of the financial year  the original lease has been cancelled  by mutual consent, and a new lease  substituted, the terms of which the  directors consider to be more advantageous to this company. During the  recent months, the exceptionally severe  winter in Canada and the strikes of  coal miners have considerably interfered with operations at the mine, but  the lessees hope to be in a position  shortly to maintain a regular output of  more than 10,000 tons per month.  Numerous improvements have been  made on the property, and the company's representative in British Columbia reports that the lessees are  carrying out all work in a very systematic and thorough manner. . For  the seven months to 30th April, 1907,  the output has amounted to about  25,000 tons, over half of this tonnage  having been shipped during the months  of March and April Since 30th  September last, the liabilities have  been reduced by approximately $7,000.

An explosive costing considerably  less than dynamite, says the Western  Mining Woild, which was experimented  with in the constuction of the Simplon  tunnel, is made by soaking meal or powdered charcoal in liquid air or liquid  oxygen, the powdered carbon being  first packed into a case made of stout  paper and covered with an asbestos wad,  through which passes a paper tube to  the bottom of the cartridge. Just before firing, the liquid air is poured into  the tube, and the firing is as usual by  means of a fulminate cap. As the  liquid air gradually evaporates, the  period between rilling and firing is limited to below 10_mini.es. A missfire is  not dangerous, because at the end of  half an hour the liquid has entirely disappeared and the cartridge may again  be handled with safety. The use of  this economical explosive had to be  abandoned in the tunnel by reason of  the quantities or carbon monoxide  which is produced in the constricted  space.

A MATTERS  <'V   iNTKURST   TO   THOSE  X COPPKK   MINING  ���<_�� o��-<_�� c^��<_- &>a^_�� ���_>*���<<_>  America's Greatest Copper Smeller.  In one day last month the Washoe  smelter at Anaonda, Mont.,-treated  10,600 tons of ore, the record for  twenty-four hours. The average for  April was 9,700 tons, of which 8,100  tons were concentrating ore and 1,800  tons fiistclass. The smelter consumed  an average of 16,000 tons of material  daily, including ore, coke, lime, rock,  and coal. During the first two weeks  of May the smelter produced 300 tons  of copper daily. The smelter can now  treat ore carrying less than one-half the  copper that, the old plant needed to  realise a profit.  It is stated that if the ore could be  mined and delivered the new smelter  could make a profit from ore containing only 0.65 per cent, copper. The  old smelter lost 1.5 per cent of the  values, although the plant was torn  down llie loss had been reduced to  0.69 per cent. All the tailings, dust,  and some of the slag at the old plant  have been run through the smelter at  a good profit since copper reached 20  cents per lb. Ten per cent of all the  copper turned out by the new smelter  is made from the slimes, which formerly went to waste. Sulphur alone  gees to waste now, which, were il  saved, would be equivalent annually  to six times the world's consumption.  One of the economies at the Washoe'  plant is to wash the coal ashes, thus  effecting a saving in fuel cost of about  $400 per day.  The other smelter of the Amalgamated Company, situated at Great  Falls, has a monthly output of nearly  8,000,000 lbs. of copper, not quite  one-half the quantity of the Washoe  smelter.  Both smelters are being pushed lo  their utmost capacities, and the Great  Falls is being enlarged so that  INTERESTED  INDUSTRY  IN    THE  mined so that the earnings of the  various companies would not be reduced.  Copper Output of Canada.  Consul A. E. Smith of Victoria furnishes statistics showing that   the production of copper in British  Columbia  has increased Soo per cent during the  past ten years, while the remainder of  Canada has increased but 50 per cent.  ,��� The whole of  Canada   produced 13.-  300,802 pounds in   1897, British Col-  j umbia's share  being   5,325,180, while  of the  estimated   55,000,000  pounds  I total production in   1906   British Col-  , umbia's output was 43,000,000 pounds.  {A Canadian editor states that the dividends   declared   last   year  by   Brttish  | Columbia mining companies amounted  j to between $3,000,000 and $4,000,000  To  American   Subscribers.  On account of the increase in second  class postage rates between Canada  and the United States, on and after  May 8, 1907, the subscription price  of the Pioneer to residents of the  United States will be $2.50 per annum.  This includes new and renewed subscriptions, and is merely the additional  postage that must be paid for American delivery.  it   wil  be able to treat next year about 1,500  tons per day more than it can now  take care of. Tho capacity of the  Washoe smelter is also being gradually  increased. Of course, the copper production is net keeping pace with the  output of ore from the mines, because  it is the policy of the Amalgamated  Company to treat as low grade ore as  possible while the price of copper is  high. Should the price drop materially  a much higher grade of ore would be  Copper Mining In Peru.  The Cerro de l'asco copper properties in Peru, which are controlled bv  J. B. Haggin, J. Pierpont Morgan, H  McKay Twombley, and other wealth)  residents of New York, has probabb  been the most expensive copper proposition ever developed. This company was organized in 1902, with $10,-  000,000 capital, to develop copper  properties in the Cerro de Pasco region  of Peru, which have been worked for  years by natives, and which are said to  contain a copper tonnage estimated all  the way from 2,000,000 to 25,000,000  ions.  To date $17,000,000 of American  money has gone into this proposition  without the return as yet of a single  dollar. A magnificent smelting plant,  erected under the supervision of Frank  Klepetke, has been built near the  mines at an altitude of 15,000 feet,  but after building, it was discovered  that the altitude was too high to per  mit of operation, and the present plant  will have to be removed to a new  location.  Eventually the Cerro de Pasco may  prove to be an important producer of  copper, but, notwithstanding the expenditure of $17,000,000 to date in j  mining development, building reduction works, railroads, etc., more millions will have to be spent before  profitable copper production is possible. !  The value of pure tea as a nerve  nutrient is conceded by the eminent  scientist, Dr. Jonathan Hutchinson.  He takes issue with those who contend  that tea drinking is injurious to people  with weak nerves, and states that a  long serious of experiments proves that  tea direct from gardens, packed in seal  lead packets, such as "SALADA" Tea,  is extremely beneficial to those of weak-  nerves. Such teas build up the nervous system.  HANDBOOK  (New Edition Issued Novembar 15, 1906.)  Is a dozen books in one, covering the  history, geography, geology, chemistry,  mineialogy, metallurgy, terminology,  uses, statistics and finances of copper.  It is a practical book, useful to all and  necessary to most men engaged in any  branch of the copper industry.  Its facts will pass muster with the  trained scientists, and its language is  easily understood by the everyday man.  It gives the plain facts in plain English  without fear or favor. It lists and describes 4626 copper mines and. companies in all parts of the world, descriptions running from two lines to sixteen pages, according, to importance of  the property. The Copper Handbook  is conceded to be the  World's Standard Reference  Book on Copper.  The mining man needs the book for  the facts it gives him about mines, mining and metal. The investor needs j  the book for the facts it gives him aboui  mining, mining investments and copper statistics. Hundreds of swindling  companies are exposed in plain English.
