BUILDING TO BE MXII2 FEET IN SIZr  Exln Heavy Tlnbers oa Acooulolthe Electric Traveling Crase���OrStr Ut keen  PUced for Lumber.  What will be die largest coui|)iessor  building yet erected in ihe Boundary  country will be required to house tin-  60 drill ele:tric com])tessor, in two  parts of 30 drills each, ordered two  months ago by ihe Granby Co. from  the Canadian Rand Drill Co.. of Shei-  brooke, Quebec.  Some two weeks ago the work ol  clearing the ground for the building  was started, about two acres, and it is  now nearly conpleted. The structure  will be locate 1 on the Knob Hill spur,  and will be th.* most eastern situated  building of th ������ company yet put up.  ��� Plans for the building have been  prepared, an J the order has been  placed for the lumber, most of which  will come from the sawmill at the  smelter. The building itself will be  about 60x112 feet in size, and on account ofthe hjavy pieces of machinery  that must be h indled hy the travelling  crane that has been ordered, the sti uc-  ture will be bull of more than ordinary  strength. Som; of the largest timbers  are so long that they cannot be loaded  on a railway car, and are now being  hewed out in the woods nearby. Many  of these are already on the spot. This  week an air drill has been working on  the rock foundations for the compressor, a pipe line having been run to thai  point, fiom .thcNo. 2_shafthous_; .This  air will also be utilized for hoisting the  heavy pieces of timber to their places.  Uy next week Foreman Wright will  probably be at work on the foundation  timbers.  Ore Cryjher oi ibe Way.  Although definite word   has not yet  been received by the Granby Co., it is  expected that the  heavy  oie  crusher  has now been shipped from the  shops  of the makers at Sherbrdoke,  as  Ju'y  15 th was the date set for its  completion.     This ore  crusher  will   weigh  nearly 100,000 pounds, and will   have  a capacity of crushing"15b"tons"'of ore  per hour, or  3,600  tons  per day." il  worked at full capacity.   It will be one  of the largest crushers of its kind  evei  turned out by  the Jenckes  Machine  Co., and will do away with   much , oi  the "bulldozing"   and' hammer  work  now necessary to reduce the ore to the  desired size for handling.  Preliminary work on the ore crusher  building is now completed, and no  more can be done till the big machine  itself arrives. It will be located jusi  above the Knob Hill ore bins, and h  built over the railway track. Theelec  trie motor of 100 horse-power capacity  to drive it is expected to arrive from  the shops of the Canadian Genera!  Electric Co., at Peterborough, Out.,  about the same time as the cruseer itself arrives.  for several days there was no outside  communication by, wire. For a day  or two trains were-run on their own  hook, as it were, Until the several  gangs,, of linemen restored telegraphic  connection. The wagon roads leading  from the city in all .directions were  rendered practicaliy impassable, there  being hundreds of trees lying across  the roads. , }  SAD CASE Of J.'McCL.SKY.  SNOWSHOE'S  MANAGER  INCREASE POSTAL RATES.  Oa  Blind M'ser. Victim ol Exaiotioa, Now Getting AroMtf.  J. MuClusky, the miner who completely lost his eyesight in an explosion  in the Knob Hill mine on June 6th,  and who has had the best of treatment  at the Phoenix General Hospital, is  now able to get aiound somewhat���  when he has a friundly guide. His  case is a |>eculiarly sad one, as he was  a studious young man and constantly  trying to improve- himself in spate  hours. He will always be totally  blind, and so cannot'.'possibly earn a  living. He is without, friends or relative1?, and has nothing saved lor a rainy  day when the accident hanpened.  A fellow worker,, Mr. Mair, has in-  terested-himselfin the -asej,and is raffling a fine photographic outfit owned  by McClusky, the drawing to take  place at the Granby Hotel. The local  lodge of Eagles is also taking up the  case, and probably a 'benefit will be  arranged for McClusky in the near  future. ,s )  It is no favorable commentary on  our government, that'no provision is  made for the'victims of accidents like  this.

After a number of days spent in preparations, and in getting everything  adjusted just right, F. C. Baker, superintendent for Porter Bros., has got the  rope tramway in good running order,  and stripping the surface of the upper  part of the Old Ironsides, claim and  also of part of the Knob Hill, is now  ii active progress.  The debris is loaded on wooden receptacles, called "scales," by means  of shovels and scrapers, and is then  attached to the 1J^ inch-steel cable.:  Gravity carries the scales to the end  of the tram line, some.600 feet away���'���  below the railway tracks���and there  the scales are dumped, the return trip  being made through the agency of the  steam engine located- near the upper  tower.    These scales are about, 8x8  Anthony J. McMillan, managing director of the Snowshoe Gold and Copper lv|i'nes, Ltd., after spending, the  winter in London, England, arrived in  Phoenix Wednesday, and spent several  days at the Snowshoe mine. He left  here last December for London, and  since' then has been going into the  affaiis of the Snowshoe with the chief  shareholder in England thoroughly,  arranging for the further exploitation  of this great property.  When the Pioneer man saw Mr.  McMillan, at the mine office last  Thursday, he was accorded an intei-  view. . Mr. McMillan would have been  here before but that he was detained a  week in Winnipeg by the floods which  washed out miles of the main line of  the C. P. R. However, he got through  safely, and expects to spend the greater  part of summer at the Snowshoe mine.  Geo. S. Waterlow and' Dr. H. Lewis  Jones, two prominent shareholders, ol  London, are expected here the lattei  part of next month on a visit of inspection, it having been two years since  they were here last.  Mr. McMillan has recently been appointed a director of the LeRoi mine,  and also a member of a special investigating committee to report on the  general condition of that mine. Although... a.-busy man; Mr. McMillan  recognized that the LeRoi mine is the  one British Columbia property- that is  pethaps known all over the world, and  to restore it to the [wsition it once held  in the eyes of the investing public  would do the mining interests of this  province more good than any other  one thing that could happen.

City   Council  Abo   Ordered   Several  Bills  Paid.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council ihe absentees were Aldermen  Marshall and Bradley, the latter being  at the coast. The following accounts  were ordered paid on the recommendation of the finance committee:  .r. Campbell     $7.50  J. B. Mc.Auliiy        300  NT.

Accordingly,  to make an effort to do this, Mr. McMillan consented to act on the board  and on the special committee that was  appointed.  Elmore Oil Process.  In regard to the Elmore oil process  of concentration for low grade copper  ores, Mr. McMillan did not care to  say much, as a representative of the  newly organized Canadian company for  the building of plants for this purpose  would probably be in the Boundary  next week. This is Ernest E. Sawyer,  who is now at the coast.    The com-  WORST WIND IN VEARS.  Considerable Damage Wag Done Last Monday  Night.  The high wind that visited this  section last Monday night about 11  o'clock, was the severest that has been  noted here in the memory of the oldest  inhabitant���������and he's not so very old.  It also visited Grand Forks, Greenwood, Spokane and a few other places,  while it was about it, so as so show no  favoritism.  In Phoenix it blew with a velocity  of a large number of miles per hour,  and shook many of the buildings in  town. Large trees were uprooted and  blown down, and some buildings had  narrow escapes. In two or three cases,  where surrounded with trees, residents  forsook them for safer quarters. The  Elmgren residence, abovs the C. P. R.  depot, was surrounded with fallen  trees, and some damage was done. J.  13. Macaulay, the "Senator," reports  some damage at his ranch below the  city, while Thos. r>. Banbury, the Last  Chance milkman, had a $150 wagon  destroyed by a falling tree. There  were many narrow escapes in addition.  The telephone and telegraph companies  suffered the worst of all, and  for stripping is that so many ore trains  are constantly going to and fro that  much time would be lost. As it is  now done, the tram line, operating  ibove all the tracks, is not delayed by  th : railway trains, and can operate at  all- times.  While this system of removing the  surface ground is not new, it is somewhat novel as applied to mining. It  was originally the intention for Porter  Bros, to quarry the ore itself from the  surface of the Knob Hill, but for the  present they will confine themselves to  ihe stripping process, of which there is  a large quantity to be done, and the  Granby Co. will itself get out the ore  for the time being, as heretofore.  High School Examinations.  The following is the result of the  high school examinations, which were  held some weeks ago at different points,  called centers, throughout the province.  Examinations for this center were held  at Greenwood, and the two candidates  from Phoenix passed successfully:  GREENWOOD CENTER.  Greenwood : Candidates 7,  passed   6.

This, he understood, was the intention  of the  new company, who  exoeet ti  erect a plant somewhere in the province  this year  where  this could   be  done.    James D. Kendall, an eminent  London mining engineer, who is well  known in the Kootenays, but is now in  Sibei ia, has expressed a most favorable  opinion of the Elmore process, and it  only remains to prove its commercial  utility.  Mr. McMillan was pleased with the  development done at the Snowshoe  since he left here early last winter.  The new 15-drill air compressor is  being erected, and the main three compartment shaft has been sunk since  then. The working of the Snowshoe  will continue to be prosecuted, the men  formerly getting out ore from the surface workings now being added to the  development force.

Munson in writing, and deposit the same with the  city clerk, that they would be willing  to take it up. c  Pound By-Law No. 41 received its  first reading, and Trades License By-  Law No.-40, reducing the license for  farmers selling produce, received its  second reading.  Wm. Delahay registered a vigorous  objection to the city's having taken  earth from his lot, below Banner St.,  on'Dominion avenue, last year to grade  Dominion avenue, leaving his residence  away up in the air. The council appointed a committee to look into the  matter.  Payday at Ihe Snowshoe.  Last Tuesday was the monthly (jay-  day at the Snowshoe mitie, and it was  probably the largest yet experienced  in the history of that company, owing  to the increase in the force of workmen.  Some.hing over $7,000 was paid out  in wages alone, besides other current  accounts. The wage list of the Snow-  shoe at present has 74 names thereon.  Editor Phoenix Pioneer:  Dear Sir:���Reading the several ciit-  icisms published this week by the editor of the Nelson Daily News, with  reference to the Associated Boards of  Trade, and their failuie to take action  in regard to t,he Femie coal miners'  strike, it appeals to me that if.this  worthy editor had thoioughly investigated matters, he would not have been  so ready to criticise that "august  body," as he terms it.  Now, what are the facts? Mr. Buchanan, as president of the Associated  Boards, at the special request of the  Fernie board, wired the diffeient  boards, asking if they favored a meeting at Fernie to see what could be  done towards amicably settling the  strike. The answeis from the various  boards showed that the majority did  not favor the meeting unless both  parties to the" strike asked for it.  Nevertheless, Mr. Buchanan, hoping  'hat something could be accomplished  in so grave a ciisis, called the meeting  for last Wednesday at Fernie, and as  we know not enough turned up to hold  a session.  A Boundary board wired to both  parlies to the strike and asked if they  favored the meeting. One of these  sent an unsatisfactoiy answer, and the  other has not as yet replied. That  board decided, under the circumstances, not to send a delegate, and  the Phoenix board did likewise. This  seemingly was the sense of most of the  boards, viz., that as intervention was  not asked for, its attempt would be of  no effect.  Speaking of the Phoenix board, I  know that its members are as anxious  as any persons in the Kootenays or  Yale that"an ending should be put to  the Fernie strike, and'they would go  as far as any other board to accomplish  this'end���affecting as it" does this entire Boundary country, of which this  camp is the largest and most important. But we did not wish to place  ourselves in a.position to be snubbed���  which might have been the case had  we sent a delegate when the parties to  the strike had not asked or requested  intervention of any kind.  In conclusion, while not speaking  for the Associated Boards 'of Trade,  but merely for the Phoenix 'organization, I would suggest that the writer of  the uncalled for criticisms referred to,  should be better infoimed on future  before accusiui; our board of having  trifled with a mallei so scions, and  by practising what lie preaches, or  writing facts, he will do more to heal  the tiouble that lias iini't��iinnately  broken out.

The Silver Hill mine,-,back ot'Craw-  ford Bay, is beginning to ship oie to  the Trail smelter.  Late developments in the Monitor,  Slocan, tend to prove that ore impioves  in depth in that camp.

The New Westminster Columbian  in an editorial on this subject says:  "A memoiial from the Kamloops  Board of Trade, calling attention to  the inroads on local business made by  Eastern houses who solicit by means  of circulars sent through the mails, has  been referred by our Board of Trade  to the Merchants' Association, as the  body best qualified to speak on the  subject.   It is a remedy that is wanted.,  "Our first prescription for this would^  be intelligently directed advertising in  the local paper. .If home merchants  set out the attractions .of the goods  they offer as carefully as the mail order  houses puff their wares in the literature  they circulate, the far away stocks  would not appear 10 enticing. lint in  neaily eveiy small community the  merchants are shy about committing  themselves 10 details^ in their printed  advertisements, and the consequence  is that ordets which might well be fill  ed at home go to a far away firm wise  enough to make an easily understood  bid for the'm."    ������*.  Eastern departmental stores do a  large-business because they are not shv  of p inteis' ink. It is advertising that  does it and they are not afraid of it,  nor do they pick out the cheapest  papers and methods of a-lvei lining.  The best is none too good .and they  pay well for space.

A compilation of the tonnage of ore  shipped from the leading mines of the  boundary that have been sending to  the three smelters of this section for  the first half of the year 1902, shows  that the amount is 256,371 tons���a  showing that is of itself most creditable  when compared will) what has been  done for a similar peiiod in the past.  Owing lo the shoitage of coke at the  smelters during the month of June,  requiring them to tun at lighter rate  when in blast at all, that month does  not make as good a record as there  was reason to expect. Still the showing is a good one.  As might be expected, the Granby  mines in Phoenix camp are far in the  lead with a total of neaily 175,000 for  ihe six  months.   The   Mother  Lode  by the Sunset, Snowshoe and several  others which have now come to be regarded as among the steady shippers  of this section.  Unless something unforeseen occur*  to prevent, the total for the balance of  1902 will exceed that for the first six  months, and the' total tonnage for the  entire year will considerably exceed  the 500,000 mark, wilh a good chance  of its being much higher. In other  words, (he tonnage for the year 1902  will be more than for 1900 and 1901  combined.  The following table will show-the  shipments of each mine on the shipping list, by months, for the last six  months, which are correct as fai as tie  figures could be ascertained by the  Pioneer, and are believed  to be accu-  comes next with 70,094 tons,followed [rate:  Complete  equipment,- unequalled in  the' West.

"There are innumerable quartz veins  of enormous bulk in this state  which  cany from $1 to $z per ton of gold,  but with   one or  two exceptions  the  cost of mining and  milling  has  been  higher than the value of the  mineral  contents of these big ore bodies. They  have been  condemned,  theiefore,  as  unavailable.   If a  66  cents per  ton  process can be applied to them, .these  big quartz deposits will possess a commercial value which cannot he sneezed  at, and the gold-quartz resources of the  state will be  tremendously  expanded.  If it can be applied 10 the mines operated on the mother lode, it will  prac-  itcally renew ihe lives of those properties, because it will make it  profitable  to extract eveiy  pound  of ore  lying  between the walls of that great  fissure  vein, and it will also pay to mine and  reduce much of the slate formation  in  its neighborhood, which is gold bearing.  The cost of mining  and milling  on  that   lode has  been   cut  down  from  about $9 per ton twenty-five years ago  io$2.2.-, at present, and now four-dollar ore is worked at a profit. Hut theie  is a vast leserve in the  vein,  cairying  fiom $2 to $3 per ton, which   nobody  can afford to touch with a $2.25  process, all of which will yield a bigpiofit  lor working if the new process of the  Treadwell mine can be applied  to- it.  Gold quaitz   mining   has   reached   a  wonderfully fine point when   ihe  cost  of winning the piecious metal from its  matrix is reduced to 66 cents per ton.'

A business man of Phoenix had a  conveisation with the Old Jackdaw  the other day that is worth repeating,  as it shows how at least one man heie  ���and there are others-r-Iooks at 'this  question of patronizing home institutions.    Here is what he said :  MS  "I found a-man who is working for  me sending his money away to Eaton's  ���the big store wheie they do not even  pay fair wages���in Toronto for some  of the things he wanted, things that  could nearly all of them have been  purchased in Phoenix establishments.  I told him that I was paying him two  or three times what I could get a man  back in Toronto ��� for, but I did not  kick at that; and I thought he should  spend his money here, providing he  could get what he needed. He thought  it over, and I'm pleased to say that he  has gotton over the Eaton fever for  good."   Caw!.Cawl Caw!  mineral production^ from  mines' that  are revenue producing.  MS  Here is something from an exchange,  adapted to local conditions, that should  be read by every business man. There  is a lot of common sense in it:  "Advertising is a jvay of getting  business when'-business does not come  to'you. You'can't see every resident  of Phoenix and talk to them about  your goods. This is impossible. But  you can say what you want them to  know in the Pioneer columns, and they  will-read it, for there is hardly a man  or woman in Phoenix who does not  read the Pioneer. This a pointer  worth considering for the man who  does not advertise, and also for the  man who does not change his ad. Say  something direct to the point each  week.   You cannot help  but prosper | duction w  Nelson, B/C.  Here is a receipt forjhe making of  a good town,' which the Old Jackdaw  recently noticed.

MS  Phoenix is not much of a place for  lovers of the piscatorial ��� art, and yet  there are not a few-'of the disciples ol  Isaac Walton'here who willingly'travel  many miles to indulge in it. The for-  lowir)g:illuki_t_d'story describes sortie  of them; accurately:  When a Phoenix man doth wish to angle  A hook like this-he loves to dangle:  J-'-:  He has a lineso good and strong,  And catches a fish-about so long;  Montana produced over $60,000,-  000 in metal in 1901.  Experts asseit that 22,000 pounds  of copper are consumed per month.  At the present time the great Treadwell, of Douglas island, Alaska, is estimated to have above the 400-foot level  4,1-31,640 tons of ore, carrying about  #2.12 per ton gold.  The great Kimberly mines have pro  duced during the past 30 years $350,-  000,000 worth of diamonds in the  rough. The value of them after cutting would be about doubled.  The annual report of the Hudson  Hay Co. shows a profit of $690,000 as  compared with $340,000 in 1901, due  to higher prices obtained for furs and  increased land sales. A dividend of  15 shillings was declared.  The gold production of the Rand  mines, of South Africa, for May was  about 140,000 ounces, worth $2,800,-  000.

Before he gets home the fisli doth gro��'[ ?]  And he tella his friends that it stretched  out so:  Some few people in the Kootenays  and Yale seem to think that the business of mining has gone to the bowwows, because none of the mining  towns are booming and forging ahead  at the old phenomenal gate, which  after all we all-knew could not last.  MI  But the Old Jackdaw wishes to beg  to differ with them. To be sure, the  wind and hot air'has been knocked  out of them, and it must be acknowledged that iii the long run this is a  good thing. We have had more hot  air than is really good for us in the  Boundary country, even if we have  not had as many wild cats to deal with  as they had in'the Kootenays.

Revolutionize  New  Treadwell Procesi May  Mining.  The improved method of mining  and milling adopted by the company  owning the Treadwell mine on Douglas Island, Alaska, which reduces the  cost from jjSi.io to' 66 cents"per ton,  means a great'annual saving in the  operation of the Soo stamps which the  company owns. As the ore averages  less than $2 per ton, the new process  means not only a" cut of nearly one-  half on the expense of mine and mill  operation, but it brings within the field  of profitable reduction a vast amount  of quartz which under former conditions would ' be classed as virtually  barren and woi thless.  The San Frahcisco Chronicle has  this to say on the matter: "The new  process will 'mate one-dollar ore profitable to work, and in the case of the  Treadwell" mine the dollar standard  will'add millions of tons of available  quartz 'in sight' to the corporation's  stock. No one- save a practical miner  can fully comprehend the significance  of a profit in dollar ore.   If the new  An Unprecedented  fef to our Subscribers.  BOTH NEW AND OLD.
