Third.���Because by your once dealing with  us, if we use you right, you will always  be our customer, and we are here to  stay.  For the above reasons we solicit a trial.  Can we have the honor ?  See our window for Stetson Hats at $5.50.  After a series of the most vexatious  delays, continually arising on the part  of the C. P. 11. construction department, the first train load of ore from  the big mines in the heart of Phoenix,  the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill, was  sent out to the Granby smelter last  Wednesday. They were quickly loaded from the immense ore bunkers���  and the loading did not appear to reduce the quantity on hand apprecia-  bly.  The train hauled out Wednesday  left Phoenix at one o'clock and but  five cars were taken, it being the plan  to handle but five cars daily at present.  Capt. Troup of the C.P.R. was present  when the ten cars were' filled with ore.  The management of the Miner-Graves  syndicate are in hopes that a greater  tonnage can be handled by the smelter  soon, as 150 tons per day is altogether  too slow a rate of shipping to be 'satisfactory. In addition to the upwards  of 8,006 tons in the ore bins of the  three mines, there are at least 12,000  or 15,000 tons broken down in the  workings of the properties, which is in  the way of the workmen.  However, the pressure is being relieved to a slight extent, and this week  a few men were added to the force at  work in the mines. This is expected  to increase gradually until the number  is double what it has ever been since  work was started on the properties.  Received With a Brass Band.  ���  The beginning of the receipt of ore  trains at the Granby smelter is an  event of hardly less importance to the  people of Grand Forks, so that it is  not surprising that the first ore train  from Phoenix should have been met  there with a brass band and all .the  jolli fixation trimmings, that .could be  thought of.  The train, which left'Phoenix at 1  p.: 111., arrived at the smelter at 5  o'clock without delay or trouble of any  kind.  Up to last night just 20 cars of ore  had' been- sent down to the Granby  smelter, of an average of 30 tons each,  or 600 tons in all., This was all from  the Old Ironsides ore bunkers, with  the exception of one car, which came  from the. Knob Hill. Loading cannot yet be done advantageously at the  Knob Hill, as the trackage is not in  proper shape.  New Cage and Large Dynamos.  While the force has been somewhat  reduced at the Old Ironsides, Foreman Dermody has taken advantage of  it to get ready to put the safety cage  in shafthouse No. 2. This work it is  expected will be completed next week,  making the second cage to be installed  on this property. A third is to be put  in yet, in the winze in,the Knob Hill.  This week workmen have been busy  setting the poles and getting the fixtures in place for the 2.00-light electric  plant soon to be installed, to take the  place of the 100-light plant now in  use. The new machine will be furnished by the Royal Electric Co., of  Montreal, and is e*pected any day.  A. J. McMillan, J. W. Astfey and W.  Ilnson at tbe Mine.  Last Wednesday J;' W. Astley, of  Rossland, consulting: engineer of the  Snowshoe, arrived at The property.  The next day Anthony. J. McMillan  and W. Tomlirison also arrived, Mr.  McMillan is managing'fdirector of the  Rossland and Slocan (B. C.) Syndicate,  Ltd., owner of the property; and Mr.  Tomlinson, who had never been here  before, is Mr. McMillan's private secretary and assistant secretary of the  company. ;' ,       .  To a Piorieer nan yesterday Mr.  McMillan said he expected G. S.  Waterlow, of London, England, one of  the largest_s,tpck>holders, would arrive  in Phoenix iti; about "three weeks, and  spend some time here.- 'Mr. Waterlow  is a printer and publisher employing  6,000 people���a few more .than are in  the service of the Pioneer..  The shipment of new: machinery foi  the Snowshoe, which conies lrom  Sherbrooke, Quebec, has been somewhat delayed on account of press.of  business, but it is expected in a couple  of weeks. The, ground has been cleared for the new boiler house. This  week a carload of machinery was received from Rossland. .It was formerly  used on the Deer Park-mine, arid consists of pre cars,'car wheels, rails, and  a big lot of   machine .drills, etc.  Carpenters are busy fitting up a new  building close to the Snowshoe office,  which will be used for a residence, for  the officers of the company whenever  they may visit the mine,.:  A full force is being; employed by  Foreman Trevorrow'"'irr ,the development of the Snowshoe, and it is gradually being increased.;".Plans for the  new bunkhouse have riolj yet been completed.       : '.-���:;���:  CHOSE NEW OFFICERS  Board of Trade Held Annual  Election.

Ten  Golden Crown Now Sends Out Eight To  Cars Weekly.  Shipments of ore .from the Golden  Crown mine to the Trail smelter are  steadily growing in -volume, with the  probability that they will continue to  increase���a condition of affairs not a  little pleasing to the, management as  well as to the shareholders.  The average shipments from this  property now run about eight or ten  cars each week. Today four cars will  be sent out, which will give a total to  date of 43 cars of good ore-^-making  something over 1,000 tons-shipped to  the reduction-works since the first car  was loaded, a short time ago.; During  the month of July Superintendent  Porter expects to send out at least 40  cars. The completion ol"the additional  side track at the bunkers materially assists in handling the loaded cars, as well  as the empties.  The trail smelter finds that Boundary ores are just the thing for fluxing  and are anxious to secure all of our  products that can be had. *  Dominion Avenue,       -      -      -       PHOENIX, B* C.  g^" Both Telephones. ,^5��33  Another Telegraph Office.  Phoenix is now pretty well supplied  with wire communication with the outside world, it has two telephones and  two telegraph lines. The second telegraph line���the C. P. R.���has been  in working order but a few days, with  Oscar Dey the station agent, as brass  pounder. At present the new line is  used largely for railway business, being  somewhat out of the way for commercial work just yet.  Production of Copper.  There has been a wonderful increase  in the production of copper in the past  100 years, but as great as it is, the  consumption is far greater. According  to the report prepared by the bureau  of statistics of the treasury department  of the United States, the world's production at the beginning of the century,  amounted to about 9,000. tons per  annum. Last year it reached 463,000  tons. It has doubled since 1885, when  it amounted to 225,000 . tons, and  trebled since 1880, when the output  was 154,000 tons. During the last  decade the production has shown every  year increase of 5 to 10 percent over  the previous year. At the same time  the visible supply has decreased, which  goes to show that the consumption has  made ever more rapid progress than  the production. During the present  decade North America has produced  more than half of all the copper of the  world, or 1,963,000 tons out of a total  of 3,643,000.  The rumor fakir was on deck again  this week, with his stories of a. proposed close down on the Snowshoe.  As usual he was wrong���as much so  as could be���but the fool killer has  mercifully passed him by for once.  Are now lower than they ever will be again.  The miners of the Knob Hill and Old Ironsides  are now buying. This is the best proof of  merit.  Buy now if 3rou want to double your  money before the end of the 3rear.  I offer 10,000 shares at  Old Ironsides Townsite Office, Phoenix, B. C.  Columbia Telephone, No. ill.  A largely attended meeting of the  Phoenix Board of Trade was held  Monday evening at the Imperial hotel.  It was the annual meeting, ; with an  election of officers, and the important  subject of how the government should  be jjetitioned to aid Phoenix when the  estimates were brought down at Victoria, was also to be decided on.  The petitions prepared by the council at its Saturday evening's session,  were read by the secret?xy; and after  some slight alterations were approved.  The petitions were as follows.  To His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor in  Council and the members of the legislative assembly in parliament assembled:.  . The petition of the assessed owners of land and  British subjects resident iu Phoenix humbly  slioweth:  Whereas, at the last session of the legislature a  petition was presented asking for the incorporation of certain lauds as the city of Phoenix; and,  "Whereas, a bill for the said purpose was introduced and received its first reading; and,  Whereas, the incorporation of said city is even  more necessary now than it was at that time;  Therefore, the undersigned hereby petition  Your Honor aud the members of the legislative  assembly to pass an'act incorporating the said  area iuto the city of Phoenix ou the lines of the  former bill.  Aud your petitioners, as in duty bound, will  ever pray, etc.  ..The second petition, for certain  much needed public improvements in  and around Phoenix, was as follows:  Unto His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor in  Council, and the legislative assembly in parliament assembled:  The petition of the Phoenix Board ofTradeand  the citizens'of Phoenix humbly showeth:  Whereas, Phoenix is immediately adjacent1 to  the largest ore bodies, and what will shortly be  the. most productive gold and copper mines iu  British Columbia; hasa payroll of some 500 men,  which will shortly be doubled; aud has contributed iu various forms about f 14,000 to' the provincial revenue.for the year ending June 30th, 1900,  which sum will be much Increased during the'  current year; and has had ouly |i ,500 expended  by.the government for itsbenefit; and,' -"-.-  Whereas,.the Phoenix schoolhouse is a small  log cabin built by the citizens about a year ago  for 14 scholars; and the present roll call is 50 aud  increasing at the rate of 10 per month, and a suitable site for 0 school can be obtained by the citizens; and,  Whereas, Phoenix is the natural distributing  point to Wellington camp. Skylark, Providence,  Oro Denoro, aud Summit camps, with payrolls  aggregating300 or 400 men; and Phoenix is connected with Summit camp by trail only; and it is  desirable in the interests of the Boundary country that a wagon road take the place of the trail,  passing through many promising claims, aud  connecting with the wagon road from Kholt to  Summit camp, the distance being 5 miles and  the estimated cost $600 a mile; and,  Whereas, all the supplies for Wellington camp,  with its constantly shipping mines, are carried  over the malu road from Phoenix to Wellington  camp a distauce of three miles, and this roadis impassible for heavy loads andean be put in passible condition by a moderate expenditure; and,  Whereas, there is no public hospital in the  entire Boundary country, and the large number  of miners employed and the hazardous nature of  their calling make it imperative that the best  surgical and medical equipment should be at the  nearest possible point to where accideuts may  occur; aud the Phoeuix General Hospital is  already incorporated aud registered at Victoria,  under the "Benevolent Societies Act, iS9i,"nnd3  suitable sites with a cash sum of $500 have been'  offered by private parties; and the government  allows $500 and 50 cents per day per patient to all  such institutions; and,  Whereas, the population of any mining town,  always of au itinerant character, cannot be expected to contribute large amounts to the erection  of a hospital; aud,  Whereas, Phoeuix has no fire protection, and is  built of wooden buildings, for the most part  adjoining each other iu groups, and is exposed to  bush fires;  Therefore, the undersigned, the Phoeuix Board  ofTradeand the citizens of Phoenix, hereby  petition Your Honor and the members of the  Legislative Assembly, now in session, that there  be placed iu the estimates:���  ��� 1.

Rumberger; vice-president, D. Mclnnes:  secretary-treasurer, W.B.Willcox. For  the eight members of the council there  were 17 nominations, the following  gentlemen being the choice of the-  meeting: Messrs. Speir, Crawford,  Kerr, Gordon, Punch, Clark, Morrin,  Williams. Seveial new names were  handed in to the secretary for membership.  AVednesday evening the council of  the board of trade held a meeting at  the office of L. C. Crawford, to approve of the petitions as finally completed, and arrange for their being  taken to Victoria by a delegate from  the board, who will look after the  varions matters contained therein as  far as possible.  A letter was read from Smith Curtis,  our member in the legislative assembly  requesting details and figures in regard  Cold Shoulder For B. (,.  A dispatch from Ottawa say? that  British Columbia gets the cold shoulder  on railwa/ subsidies, for, although  $3>59��!0���� is to be voted, British Columbia gets a beggarly $96,000, which  goes to the Kaslo & Lardo-Duncan Co.  for a line from Duncan lake towards  Lardo or Arrow lake or from Lardo  to Arrow. lake, 30 miles.  John Rogers Takes Wellington  Camp Claim.  HAS   WORKING  BOND  FOS   $21,111  Make It Assessable.  ' The resolutions in favor of making  the Rathmlillen an assessable company, which were carried at the general meeting held on the 25th of June  last, were confirmed at the second  general meeting held Monday at the  office of the company, Rossland. The  properties of the company are located  in Summit camp, not far from the B.  C. mine. The chief claim is the Maple Leaf, on which most ol the work  has been done.  Another  Telephone   Exchange.  The Vernon & Nelson Telephone  Co. has had a force of men at work  for some days/making preparations to  install a local exchange in Phoenix.  The central office will be in tbe store  of McRae Bros, and Smith on Dominion avenue, where the toll office has  been located. A switchboard with a  capacity for 50 phones is now on the  way here, and will probably be setup  next week. When finished this will  give Phoenix two complete but independent telephone exchanges, with  long |ine,connections���just as Rossland, Grand Forks and Greenwood  now have.  Adjoins Golden Crown, Winnipeg and J. and R.  and is a Promising Property���Some Little Work Already Done.  Tennis around* In Shape.  All this week it force of men have  been busy getting the grounds of the  Phoenix tennis club in order for use.  It entailed considerable expense and  effort, but it is now finally accomplished in good shape. The court is so  arranged on the Brooklyn claim that  any number of visitors can get a good  view of the players. The supplies,  rackets,balls and net, that were w ired lor  to Toronto, have arrived. It is whispered about that the Phoenix club has some  crack players in its membership, and  some excellent games will probably be  the result.    '  Sunday School Picnic.  Next Thursday afternoon, July 19th,  the Phoenix Presbyterian Sunday  school will hold its first annual picnic.  It will be held in the grove on the  New York claim, near the residence of  Mrs. Lee. Superintendent McKenzie  cordially invites all children to be  present. Parents also are requested to  be present and to provide baskets for  lunch. The ladies of the church will  assist in seeing that all of the little folks  enjoy themselves.  Grading Old Ironsides Avenue.  W. XV. and F. F. Fischer, the firm  awarded the contract for grading Old  Ironsides avenue and First street, began active work last Thursday with a  number of teams, scrapers and men.  While nothing definite is given out, it  is understood their /bid was about $2,-  000, including a new bridge over the  creek on First street and two culverts  on Old Ironsides avenue. The grade  in front of the store of the Wynkoop-  Stephens Trading Co. will be lowered  about four feet, and raised about eight  feet at the bridge; thereby equalizing  the steep hill on First street.  Since the inauguration of the steady  shipping era in Wellington camp, the  properties of that camp have increased  in favor, the owners realizing that they  have something well worth developing.  A few days ago a deal was consummated by which C. J. McArthur, Geo.  R. Naden and Mrs. Fred Shonquist  bonded the Hard Cash claim in Wellington camp to John Rogers. The  amount ot" the bond is $20,000,  and by its terms no cash is to be paid  until a certain amount of development  is done. The Hard Cash is a fractional claim, said to contain about 28  acres, and immediately adjoins the  Winnipeg, Golden Crown and J. and  R.  Both the Winnipeg and Golden  Crown have been shipping steadily  since the track was completed, and  recent work on the J. and R. has uncovered some splendid ore. This discovery is close to the line of the Hard  Cash, and it is understood the tuo  claims will be worked together.  The J. and R. takes its name from  the ow ners, Messrs. Jones and Rogers,  who had a number of mineral claims  in that locality. They were interested  in the Hartford group, which was  bought by a syndicate of Eastern  Townships capitalists represented by  II. N. Galer, of Grand Forks, the  treasurer of the Granby Consolidated  Mining and Smelting Co., Ltd.  Wellington camp is rapidly coming  to the Iront for its shipping mines, and  also for the excellent showings made  on other projierties that are working,  such as the Athelstan  and  Hartford.  the Old  did the  on  I)o-  Pboeaix in Football.  Tom Corbett, captain of  Ironside* football team, that  Greenwood eleven up brown  minion day, writes from Kaslo, where  he is at present that he has witnessed  the work of the Kaslo and Sandon  teams,' and thinks the Phoenix boys  can put up a much superior game. It  is probable that a return game will be  arranged with the Greenwood team  before long.  Will see it Through.  S. H. C. Miner, of Granby, Quebec,  with his party, including his wile and  daughter, have been in Grand Forks  for a week. Mr. Miner is president  of all the Miner-Graves syndicate associated companies, and is a gentleman of wide experience with industrial  enterprises.  It is said that, on his arrival at  Grand Forks, he was much displeased  with the slowness of progress on the  smelter dam, and at once decided to  stay right there till it was completed  far enough to turn water into the  long flume. In fact, he has suggested  a plan of doing this before the dam is  finished���a plan that does not seem  to have occurred to the contractors or  engineers in charge.  Big Order for Machinery.  The Jenckes Machine Co. has just  sold to the British Columbia Copper  Co., which is operating the Mother  Lode, in Deadwood camp, machinery  to the value of $12,000. It consists  of a 24x42 200 horse power hoist, two  So-horse power boilers, cages, etc.  In Front Central Camp.  Bob Scott and Bob Veatch returned  from their claims*in Central camp  night before last, well pleased with'the  result of their work there. They with  others, arc interested in the Summit,  Sunrise and five other claims, located  about a mile south of the Dewdney  trail, seven miles from town. The  work has been done on the Sunset  where they have sunk a 4x6 foot shaft  for 30 feet. About 25 feet down the  ore body was struck, which they are  now in for five feet. The ore is largely  chalcopyrite, and the indications art-  very favorable. On a new location,  the Taniarac, adjoining the Summit,  free gold has been found. Mr. Veatch  has great confidence in the future of  the camp.  Tunnel on R. Bell.  A tunnel is being driven into the  hill side, at the R. Bell in Summit  camp, to connect with a crosscut from  No. 2 shaft. After it had been extended 100 feet a body of ore was struck.  Thus far the ledge has been demonstrated to be 15 feet wide. The  tunnel will be extended another 50 feet  to connect with the old workings. The  main shaft, which is 150 feet deep,  will be sunk an additional 100 feet before crosscuting is commenced.  Mines of the Boundary.  The railway tunnel on the Snow-  shoe is now in over 250 feet.  Ore shipments from the B. C. mine,  in Summit camp, now aggregate nearly  5,000 tons.  The ore body was struck last Saturday in the Mountain View, in Summit  camp. The property adjoins the B. C.  mine.  D. XV. Moore, the Trail smelter ore  buyer, has been in the Boundary this  week, looking lor contracts for his  concern.  The owners of the Golden Eagle on  the North Fork, received $21.57 Per  ;on net for the car of ore shipped to  Trail recently.  Since finishing the raise in the west  drift of the War Eagle, where a splendid ore body was iound, work has  been pushed on the east drift, and it  is improving in appearance.  Kenneth P. Matheson, brother of  Postmaster Matheson, of Phoenix, was  in town Sunday, on his way from  Christina lake to the Similkameen,  where he will work some properties in  Camp Hedley, on 2o-mile creek, in  which he is interested. This is the  camp where Marcus Daly's famous  group, the Nickle Plate, is being developed.  The Cannonball group, in which  Wm. Yolen Williams, of Phoenix, is  interested, has been equipped with  machinery. The properties are located  on Baker creek, Christina lake, and  arc showing up well tinder develo|>-  ment. Others interested are V. V.  Buck, of Sherbrooke, Quebec, I. W.  Spaulding, foreman of the Calitornia  mine at Rossland, and R. Dalby Mor-  kill, of Rosshtnd.  >wl  i\$  ��j!-p ,  %4  8,   p  r"  ;<" it��  j.,,  " *�����&  ' im  R <���  *m  ��ij  vT-'t.Sf!  l~A  wfflffij  hi  "f*'fJI  ��\  ''/'  S-.S  iV  ^m  Hr'  -.��  m  p-v/'y  ��} '/IP  h���-^S''  --���' *iwiii  ( J  VS5&  *,���  *      ''f*i  'Ait'  HIE  ' Mi  *' Si.  ��� '-'Ml  w  .1 -f-2:  -   3 rf  :��� r;  *j �� 1 j  T .Af'''i  4*  <���'.���>������ iMM  II?  !
