VV. Bradley  Four AuscUled Cssipaaks.  Four strong associated companies,  under one central.management, are pp:  erating at this  point.    English capital  is behind it,  and   the ;RolhchiIds are  said to hold the control.  All the companies���which are knownlas the Alas-:,  ka-Treadwell, the Mexican, the Ready  Bullion and the Juneau-Alaska���are  working on   one .continuous, quartz  lead.    They all  have  most complete,  equipments  for mining and milling.  It was in  1885 that the  first mill  was operated; arid it then had but five  stamps.    This  capacity has  been inf  creased ftom  year  to year until now  there are 800 stamps   in operation by  the   combined   properties.     One   of  these   alone,   the   Alaska-Treadwell,  during the month   May stamped 89,  000 tons of ore���about 3,000 tons per  day^   .The bullion is sent to San Fran-  cisce and the concentrates to the Ta-  coma.smeller, in which institution the  Treadwell people own a controlling interest. '  The 1,200  men on  the. payroll of  the Treadwell mines receive about the  same wages that are paid in the Boundary.    Laborers get  $2  per day and  board, and skilled   miners from $2.50  io $3 per day and board.  Glory Hole Work.  In   addition   to   the   underground  work, vast quantities of ore come from  the open quairy, or glory hole, as it is  termed here.    This quarry is a gigantic affair, being about  400 feet across,  and with sloping sides   450 feet high.  [ This quarry is now  about  1,000 feet  ' long.    Miners  often have  to  be  let  down the, quarry sides   with   ropes to  locate and  work  the air  drills���the  compressor being of about 40-drill capacity.  From the floor of the quarry the ore  goes through a number of 30 foot  raises, whence it is carried in trains of  six or eight cars each to a pocket near  the shaft, whence it is hoisted by skips  600 feet to the surface. Mr. Williams  noted that this expense of hoisting the  quarried ore is one point where the  Granby Co. operates more economic  cally, as the ore quarried at the Knob  Hill mine is never hoisted- from the  time it is quarried to the time it comes  out in the form ol blister copper at the  smelter. '      .  In the underground workings, now  some 700 feet deep, with much cross-  cutting and drifting, Mr. Williams  was much interested because of a system adopted in the last year by which  the ore is being taken out with but lit-  -"'',".*�����',generally were in regard to the operations,  tonnage, and method of working employed at the Granby mines. Ij was  known to be watched- in the far east  and even across the mill pond, but.; it  appears that in the west and chilly  north; the successful exploitation of  the Granby mines is being closely followed. ���  Mr. Williams believes that this is  due very laigely to a wide circulation of  the Pioneer and to the articles which  appear, in its columns. . ,  - Visited Mr. Breed's Smelter.  After running up to Skagway for a  day, it being but a day beyond Juneau, Mr.: Williams-'an'&'Mr. Smithre-  turned to Victoria, from'which place  they visited the Leonora ���mine on.Mt.  Sicker, where 40,000;:tons of copper  ore are bn'the'-dump.:. They'also saw  James Breenj who spent something  like$i25,"ooo in developing the Brooklyn mine in this camp last year. Mr.  Breen is now building j a smelter at  Crofton, Vancouver Island, to treat  Leonora ore. He is having his troubles to get his machinery.from the east,  but will probably blow in his single  furnace some time this summer.  Although not taken for pleasure,  Mr. Williams and Mr. Smith enjoyed  the trip to the utmost.  Express Men Inspect; Mines. -  Last Sunday a party ��� of Dominion  Express Co. officials visited Phoenix,  in the course of a general western tiip  of inspection. While here they were  'taken through the Old Ironsides mine,  and had a chance to gaze at some of  the mammoth ore stopes of which they  had heard but could not credit. |  In the party; which came in by  special train, having Supt. Downie's  private caboose, were: W. S. Stout,  general manager of the Dominion Express Co.; G; Ford;.superintendent at  Winnipeg; Wm. Walsh, general agent  at-Toronto; V. G. R. Vickers, general  aget^tat Montreal; R. Helm, route  agent, Nelson; and J. T. Lawrence,  C P.'R. trainmaster at Nelson, who  was in charge of the party in the  Boundary.  Donations to the Hospital.).'  Miss Johnson, matron of ithe Hospital, acknowledges:with  ihanks the  following donations: .  J. B. Boyle, full equipment<p��medi-  cines for dispensary; Miss Flewelling,  books; Mr. Rickard, pictures; Mr.  Newland, fruit and vegetables; Mrs.  Haggerty, old linen; Mr..Clark, flowers.  For the first time in   many years���  in fact/since the Miner-Gravefpieople  took hold of the properties���the mines  of the Granby Co. closed last Saturday  morning.    Only the engineers;- pump  men, carpenters on new work and'em-  ployees ol   Porter Bros,   were "left at  work.   The sole cause of this unusual  but not unexpected order was the lack  of coke at the company's  smelter at  Grand, Forks, and because no definite  information was obtainable as to when  sufficient supplies could be expected.  As a consequence, something over 400  men were affected  at the mines and  over2oo at the smelter, and  the town  was full of idle men for a  few days.  I Fortunately it did not last long. ,  I :-The smelter's two furnaces which  were blown out-for the DominiWDay  holidays were still cold when the mines  stop[>ed work, and the Granby managers did not care to start them' til)  they were reasonably certain of keeping them supplied with coke.  This assurance they could not get  last week, but still a few cars of coke  kept coming every day, and by Wed-  j nesday of this week there were 1,200  tons on hand at the smelter. The  colliery manajgers at Michel thought  they could keep up the quota "of "several cars daily, so, two furnaces were  *��*���~��� :- - -c*-'��� - lW-J��o��A���,.   ���r.A-1 ho  mines resumed  operations as 'usual.  The management seems to "think tfiat  they will be able w: continue at this  half rate, and before long can put all  four furnaces- in  blast, using up once  more 1,500"tons of :Phoenix ore^daily  instead of 750 tons, as at  present.  SUIas of toe Feraie Strike.  At Fernie, .where there is a strike on  among the coal miners, there is  nothing, new to report, so far as heard from, j  Last week the.company  notified em-|  ployees to take their  tools  from  the  mines, and pieserlt their time at the  office and get   their  pay.     This  has  been done, and the Fernie  mines  of  the Crow.'s Nest Coal' Co.  are  now  closed.    Hpw long this will'continue  no one. can  fell,  but it is earnestly  hoped that efforts now being made  to  adjust the difficulties between the company and the men will soon bear fruit  in a satisfactory manner.  At Michel, twenty miles beyond  Fernie, where the coal company also  has a few ovens, the coal miners at  first went out in sympathy with the  Fernie miners, but as it appeals that a  majority of them did not favor stopping work,,the getting out of coal has  been resumed at that point, and a  limited output is being made, which  goes to the Granby.  The Greenwood smelter is still cold,  and that at Boundary Falls, which had  a considerable coke supply,   has  used  it up.    The Trail smelter has quite a  stock on hand, but that at Nelson   is  small and will soon run out.     Consequently,   the Granby  smelter  is  the  only Boundary reducion works still iu  blast.    The situation, therfore, is  serious, as it almost completely  ties  up  the mining industry of the country.  flntoby Officials En Roulc.  A   party  of   Granby  officials "and  friends are en route to the  Boundary.  Among them are S. H. C.  Miner, ol  Montreal, president of the Granby Co.;  A. L. White, of Montreal, secretary of  the Granby Co.; Mrs. and Miss Miner;  A. C. Flumerfelt, assistant manager ol  the Granby  Co.;  W.   H.  and   Mrs.  Robinson, of Granby,  Que.;  W.  W.  Robinson, Mr.and Mrs. Stevens, Water  loo, Que.; Arnold Boston, XV. A. Wat-  ley, of Montreal, and C.G. McKinnon,  of Sherbrooke, Que.  It was expected that the party would  arrive this week, but owing to land  slides on both the Crow's Nest and  main lines, trains have been held at  Medicine Hat for several days. It is  now anticipated that the party will  probably reach, the Boundary early  next week.  little I bring the Fernie coal miners strike  to  a satisfactory end.  There was considerably discussion  i>n the subject by the members present, and nearly all agreed that unless  both parties  to  the strike requested  Mlies���Somcwbat  Month.  Smaller Thau  Big  Last  Thursday of this week was pay day  at the Granby mines in this camp, as  some such intervention, it would be in-  weI1 as at the company's smelter at  advisable for the Associated Boards to  take the initiative in the matter. Accordingly, the president of the Phoenix  hoard was authorised to wire Mr.  Buchanan, the president of the Associated Boards, to that effect.  The same telegram was sent to all  the boards in the Kootenays and Yale,  and the replies from most of them indicate that the members feel much as  the members in PJioenix do. A-meeting of the executive may be held, however, at Fernie to consider the grave  situation.  Grand   Forks.     On  account  of  the  Boundary Mining Notes.  The new No. 2 tunnel on the Knob  Hill is new in 50 feet.  "The framework of the new Showshoe  compressor building is up.  Sunset smelter matte is being converted into -blister copper by the  Granby Co.  Over a million feet of lumber will  be used by the Granby Co. this year  in its Phoenix improvemtnts.  The Jewel, which has not shipped  for several days, began again yesterday, 1  The new large machine shop for the  Granby Co. is now enclosed, and the  force of carpenters is now working on  the inside. V  ���-. No shipments have been sent out  from the Mother Lode mine this week,  and a small force is employed on development.  For .twelve .days not a ton of ore was  sent out from the Granby mines. This  I has never happened- before since shipments were started-1���in July, 1900.  Over a thousand tons of ore were  sent out from the Snowshoe this whek,  but no more will be shipped till the  Sunset smelter gels a supply of coke.  A. J. McMillan, managing director  of the Snowshoe mine, is expected to  arrive from London next week. He is  now on the directorate of the LeRoi  mine also.  Shipments from the Sunset mine to  the company's smelter have been discontinued and the smelter is expected  to be blown out this morning. The  35 men at the mine are still at work.  Since the fire at the Winnipeg mine,  which destroyed the shafthouse, one  man has driven 30 feet in a drill���  which is considered a pretty good record. Nothing definite has yet been  announced about rebuilding.  coke shortage during the  pait  of  the  month the ore shipments weie necessarily   reduced   from   the company's  mines, as the bins at tiie smelter and  mines weie kept full  all   the  time���  together holding about 20,000 tons  of  ore.      This  necessarily   leduced   the  number of men at mines and smelter,  and so.cut down the payroll   to  some  extent.  This month the company  paid   out  in round numbers for wages about $55,-  000, against over $60,000 last month.  Of the first  amount,  about $35,000  was paid out  in  Phoenix  this   week,  and the balance at the smelter,  where  some 250 men are at work when  four  furnaces arc in blast.    Until the  four  furnaces are running  instead  of two,  the number of men at both places must  of necessity be somewhat less, as there  is no place to put the ore that is being  taken out.  Shipping Three Cars of Ore.  The Providence mine, near Greenwood, is shipping three cars of high  grade ore to one of the Washington  smelters���either Tacoma  or  Everett.  side of the line is to have a check  on  some shipments already made to other  smelters.   - W. C.   Fowler  and   Fred  Whitwell, who  are  intfrested in 'the  claim, will go with the ore���and at the  same time, Mrs. Whitwell also accompanying her husband.    It will   be   remembered that a half interest in   the  Providence was bonded a few   months  ago on the basis  of $50,000 for  the  property by Greenwood and: Spokane  capitalists, and it is said that the development done since that time has been  of a most satisfactory character.    The  ore, which has gold, silver and copper  values, is said   to   run   from $100   to  $300 per ton.  By putting Phoenix on his list of  professional appointments Geo. L.  Pedler, Opt.

EDITORIAL COMMENT  THE CAUSE, AND THE REMEDY.  The chief industr) of the Boundary  ���that of mining���which gives employment to a thousand men, and support  to five thousand more, is in a crisis.  The men are not dissatisfied with the  wages paid, nor tbe hours of work nor  the way in which they are treated.  There is plenty of ore, and capital  stands ready to do business. Three  smelters are prepared to handle, from  2,500 to 3,000 tons of ore daily. There  : -. 'i - ���   ���Lt- ^Uo-o    ct(   unv  kind. And yet the mining business'is  temporarily at a standstill,' because' a  few men, some 300 miles from here,  with whom we have nothing to do, and  over whom we have no control, have  seen fit to so decree.  In this connection it is immaterial  whether the coal miners in their contention are right or wrong. That is  another question. The fact confronts  us that the employers have precipitated  a crisis. , We believe that it will be of  short duration, but may it not occur  again?  Cokejs king���don't make any mistake about that.    - -  Every cloud has a silver lining, it is  said. , Do not some of them have coke  linings.

If they were so  owned, such a condition as the present  would not be possible. Neither the  employers nor the employees could  precipitate such a calamity���a calamity  that is as widespiead as .it is serious.  It would appear that the Socialists  certainly have a good argument unwittingly piesented right here, whether  one believes in the principles of socialism or not.  Let us review the situation, which  we hope will be in process of adjustment before these lines are before our  readers. Boundary smelters require  about 350 tons of coke per day fdr  fluxing pui poses. This coke must  come fiom the Crow's Nest collieries,  where we were told not long ago there  are illimitable quantities of the black  diamonds Boundary ores arc of ��uch  low grade that the coke must be laid  down at the lowest jwssible rate to  admit of the ores being smelted at a  small profit. Therefore, only Crow's  Nest coke can be used to advantage  Hard luck stories only are comh.g  from those leturning from Thunder  Mountain, Idaho. The Spokesman-  Review's boom turns out to be a boomerang.  The suggestion made by the Pioneer foi the building of'a home for  miners, is being favorably commented  on by the piess. The agitation should  be kept up to a successful issue.  U'e are told from Ferine that the  sum already contributed for the relief  of the widows and^oiphans of the tei-  rible coal mine disas er���betwen $30,-  000 and $40,000���is fai tiom being adequate. It is said that $100,000 will  not be'too much.  After the horrible accident of May  23d at the coal mines, without notice  01 warning the new manager posted  notices that theieafter the miners must  come and go to work on their own  time���a custom that it is claimed has  never been in vogue in the coal mines  of British Columbia. Thereupon the  miners immediately stopped work, and  thereby pi evented the large majority of  the workers in this section from earning a living; and if the strike lasts for  any length of time brings ruin to thou'  sands and thousands of innocents���'  individuals who have and can have  nothing to say in the matter.  - Editor MacAdams, of the Sandon  I'aystreak, failed to appear on the 2d  inst., at Victoria, befoie the full court,  on a chaige of contempt,' and a' bench  warrant was issued. He talked pietlj  plain about the judiciary, and it appears as though they .intended to break  him up in business. Thus do the  troubles of an editor accumulate.  John H. 'lonkin, the new manager  of the Crow's Nest I'ass Coal Co , has  been telling the newspapers at the  coast how the recent fatal accident  happened, and why the jury censured  the company. If he would settle that  miner's strike which is tying up ail the  industries of southern British Colum  bia, his intei views would be more in  tcrcsting to residents of the Boundary  and Kootenay.  vertising space is valuable.

Though the company was formed  on June' 20th, .1901, it, in accordant i  with the terms of the prospectus, tool  over the Snowshoe, mine and group o  properties as from the ist March, 1901,  and has been responsible for all' expenditurei sjnceltiatdate. Since tin  new company took over the propeity,  some 2,000 ft. of underground woil-  has been done in drifting, cross-cui-  ting, raising and sinking,: thus developing and opening up the large. on  bodies already* shown up. A large  new working lshift is in the course ol  construction, and will shortly be completed to aCdepth^pi^abOut 300" ft.  This shaft "will be capable of handling  from 300 to 400 tons of ore per day.  In addition to this underground work,  much has been doneupon the surface.  A large area bfgrouiid has been cleai-  ed and stripped, the overlaying.. soil  removed, thus exposing the ore bodies  near the surface, and'makirig it poS.  sibleto. mine the' same very, economically, The principal piece of stripping  is 360 ft. long by about 80 ft. wide  upon an average. It is intended to  further continue these operations during the present season.  Toward the end of last year the  directors authorized the erection of a  new bunk-house and boarding-house,  and new office and residential buildings  for the officials and men employed  in  connection withthe mine..   Prior to  this, the building accommodation  was  very inadequate, and consisted mainl)  of the old log. buildings used  by the  original owners ��� of' the property.     A  considerable amount of machinery has  been purchased  in  order to provide  the necessary power and plant  to enable the operations of the mine to be  successfully carried on.    An  ore  bin  with a capacity of 325 tons has been  built.    The C. P. R. runs across  the  property, and last year a private spui  was built to connect with  the mine  workings and ore bins.   Another short  spur has b-seh'built recently in .connection with the   installingi.of the  new  machinery..,       .'       ;  Test shipments of over 2,000 tons o.  ore from various parts ;of the mim  have been shipped to the smelters with  satisfactory resaltsr  Negotiations arc  THE ELMORE  OIL PROCESS  Company Organized to Erect  Plants.

The  directors are giving^the most careful  attention to thfc; economical treatment  of the large ore bodies in the Snowshoe  mine, and they have every confidence  in being able to deal with these ore  bodies at a considerable profit.  Talk  ')<'  The fifth annual meeting of the  shareholders of the Glow's Nest" 1'ass  Coal Company was held in Toronto  on March 7 th.  . 'I he net profit of the year aftei(pay-  ing all  operation   expense 'and 'all  chaige of every kind amounted to $207,-  848.39.    After paying a dividend at  the late of ten per cent, per annum, a  balance of $28,142.89   was    carried  foi ward to the credit of piofit and loss.  This   company's   assets   are their  coal mines and the Townsite of Fernie.  Four years ago  this Company had no  transposition facilities, and their stock  sold as low as eleven cents per share.  Today theii stock is selling at $90.00.  The Similkamcen Valley Coal Com-  . pany, limited, assets aie, coal mines,  timber, watei power,  agricultural  and  hoiticultural land,  city   water   works,  electric light plant and the townsite of  Ashnola, sunounded by the following  ' resources: gold,   copper, silver,  lead,  iVm, lime, fire clay,   platinum and a  fine stock raising country, and it is the  smelting  centre  of   the  Similkameen  Valley, .with a climate all that could be  asked.     Today you can secure an option on'this Company's stock by paying teiicents per share down and ten  cents per month until fully paid,   with  nonforfeiture  clause.

Crow's  Nest shares are  an example.      This  would be a fair  profit on  an   invest-  mant of $10.00 per month  for eleven  months.    We invite the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by intending purchasers.  ...���,.���������--...���..- For further information apply to  Simifkcimeen Valley Coal Company, Lii  The Canadian Ore Concentiation,  Limited, is the title of a company  which comes before the public. It has  'ieen formed to acquire the Canadian  rights of what is known as the "Elmore  Oil Process" for the concentration of  ores. The process, which is an en  tirely novel one, is based on the discovery that certain heavy oils, il  brought into contact with pulverized  ore and water, will take up the metallic constituents, leaving the rocky residue to pass away with the water.  For some time past samples of ore  from different Canadian mines have  been tested in I ondon by this process  ���wth apparently entirely satisfactory re-  iults. The prospectus contains a very-  valuable testimonial from l)r J. D  Kendall, who has accepted the posi-  ion of consulting engineei, and who  writing a few weeks ago, states that he  is "fully assured of the success of the  process, and thee is a large field for  its operation in Canada." The rep-  itation of this engineer as a reliable  md cautious expeit stands deservedly  high, and the fact that he so strongly  endorses the process will recommend  this issue to investors.  Should this piocess of ore concentration prove as satisfactory as it is anticipated in the prospectus, it will practically revolutionize the mining indus-  tiy in some of the most important mining camps in Canada. In the Rossland and Boundary districts of B. C.  alone there are enormous bodies of  low grade ore which if they can be  concentrated in the ratio of say 10 to  1, would pay very handsome profits,  whereas at present, as water concentration has proved unsatisfactory, only  the higher grade ores in the Rossland  camp can he profitably handled. It  may also be found that this ptocess is  applicable to the extensive nickel deposits of Sudbury.  100 Tew PUntCoiU $11,000;  The prospectus states that a plant  of 4 units) capable'of treating 106 tons  per diem, costs' about. ,-��2,206, the  crude petroleum.'of which little is lost,  is extremely cheap, and the directors  state that the royalty on only 30 units  of plant would be sufficient to obtaina  substantial return on the present capU  talization.

It represents  Lord Kitchener, of Kartoum  and'South  African  fame, as sitting iu  the foreground, considerably "swelled"  by the enconiums which  have been  passed upon him, since the termination  of the SouthAfrican  war.    He is also  represented as surrounded by piles and  piles of gold, to the extent of a quarter  of a  million  dollars.    In  the  background are a number of battered' and  famished-looking   "Tommy   Atkins!',  who are beseechingly enquiring, "Didn't we help a little bit."   It was ever  thus.    Ungrateful man is ever setting  up graven images and becomes a slavish   "hero-worshippei" and invariably  ignoring the ones who "have borne the  burden and the heat of the day."

EffVctne lune 72 1902  Arrives  Daily  Ail agitation is on foot, inaugurated  by the Rev. R. G. McUeth, of Vancouver, for the amalgamation of the  Presbyterian and Congregational  churches, of Canada. It is nearly  time that the churches, which claim to  stand for all that is good and sensible,  should awake to the fact that the ruinous "competitive system", which obtains in the ecclesiastical, as well as in  the commercial world, has about reached its limit. Indeed, according to the  opinion of the O. J. the "competitive  system", in all branches of this work-  a-day world, has outlived its usefulness,  and what the O. J. says on this, as on  all other matters, "goes."  Therefore, it goes without saying, that  the scheme of establishing a church  trust will receive the heaaty endorsement of the Old Jackdaw ��� and all  other wise people.  It almost looks as if Premier Ross  of Ontario is not yet out of the woods.  According to the last press reports it  may be that the results of the polls  will be finally decided by the judges,  and that the matter of deciding between the particular shade of the pplit  ical machine, which will govern the  country, will be taken out of the hands  of the electors.  m'  A couple of Phoenix  young  people  had a very   interesting experience a  Engineers, Firemen, Machinists and  Electricians send lor 40-page pamphlet containing Questions asked by  Examining Board of Engineers to  obtain Engineers license.

Office Hours: 10-3; Saturday from 10 to 11  According to the report of an address- on "Our School System," delivered by Mr. John Mayj M. A., of tin  to a very substantial! County Carlton (Ont.) Teachers As-  ' sociation, it is his opinion that the  professions are overcrowded. While  this .may be true, it is. far more true  that the ranks of unskilled labor art  more so, as well as the trades. The  only department of labor which is com  plaining about the scarcity of workers  is that of the ministry; and the scarcity in that department is largely owing  to the conservatism of the church, as  well as the fact that ministers are tht  poorest paid ofany labor which calls  itself respectable.  Mf  But it is not surprising that this is  the case, when we take into consideration the fact that there are employed  in the factories and: mills of the American continent, no less than four millions of women and the same numbei  ���>f children-,- who are crowding out the  men from the position of bread winners.  WlH'ShlpOre. ���  This week the Helen and Capital  Prize claims were leased by Robert  Wood, Frederic Keffer and Sydney M.  Johnson, says the Greenwood Times;  The Helen is owned by Mr. Wood  and the Capital Prize by Messrs. Keffer and Johnson.' Both properties are  .situated between Greenwood and Anaconda; Under the terms of the leased  the properties will be worked and ore  shipped. The veins are small but ol  evry high giade.

So long as this condition continues,  so long will the overcrowding of the  professions continue. Until a more  rational system than that of the competitive one is adopted, and the necessity of the mothers and babies to  take the places of the bread winners in  the mills and the factories is removed,  these evils will continue, and the difficulties in the way of able bodied men  taking these women to occupy their  natural place as mistresses of their  hearth stones will remain.
