But the Snow  shoe, B. C. mine, Emma and Sunset  have materially increased ore ship  ments.

ASK COUNCIL TO PASS THE BY-LAW  Boundary Mining Notes.  Ore shipments from the Lucile Dreyfus mine have been .started to the  Granby'smelter.  The tunnel in the Ruby, near  Boundary Falls, is now in about 100  feet, and ore has been reached.  Smith Curtis left Rossland last Sunday on a three weeks' trip to the east,  in relation to financing the Oro Den-  oro:     /  W��8 Read ai This Week's Mediae of the  City Fathers for the First Time���Mlf  ctllaaeous Business.  " It would appear that the' promoters  of the V., V. & E. branch of the  Great Northern are still anxious to secure the right of way over certain  streets and alleys of the city of Phoe  nix, for which the permission', of the  city council must be obtained. At least,  the company's solicitor at Rossland,  A. H. McNeill, who has charge of such  matters, has: asked the council to pass  the by-law, No. 43, which was prepared  some time ago, and this week if,'was  read in the council for the first time.  The agreement requires several pages  of typewritten matter, the gist of  which has already been published in  these columns.  At   Wednesday's   council   meeting  there   were    present,   besides  Mayor  Rumberger, Aldermen Marshall, McDonald,   Reardon   and  Graham, and  the following bills were ordered paid :  Phoenix Fire Dep.,  refund,.. $17.00  Dominion Copper Co., rent,  Phoenix E.

Not only have the large low grade  properties a considerable number on  their respective payrolls, but the high  grade mines are cutting no small figure  in this respect, also. The following is a  list of the mines and smelters with the  mi in her of men ��t work in each, us  nearly as they could be acertained.

Hadrill, of Montreal, secretary  of the Canadian committee of arrangements for the itinerary through Canada of the members, of the fifth congress of the Chambers of Commerce  of the Empire has sent Secretary Will-  cpx of the Phoenix Board of Trade an  official programme of the Canadian  tour. In his letter Mr. Hadrill states  that this programme will be revised on  August 15th, but only in minor details,  and the tour will be practically as outlined . in the official programme. As  far, as the trip tp the Boundary is concerned the programme.: is as follows:  Monday, Sept, 14th, breakfast on boat.  Leave Robson by special train at S:oo  a. m. Arrive Grand Forks at 11 a. m.  Visit to smelter of Granby company.  Luncheon. Leave Grand Forks at  1:30 p.m. arrive at Phoenix 3:15 p. m.  Supper at 6:30 p. m. Leave Phoenix  at 8:00 p. in, arrive at Greenwood at  9:00 j). 111.  Tuesday Sept 15th���Morning in  Greenwood. Luncheon at Greenwood.  Leave by regular train at 3:20 p.m.  The second party will come on the  day following. The Phoenix Board  will probably send representatives to  meet the visitors at RobsOn and accompany them through the Boundary.  There will be from 100 to 150 in the  two parties.  SIX FURNACES  IN SIX WEEKS  N. Lemieux, street labor. .,  A communication was read from J.  E. Mills, agent for the Marsh block,  asking for a sidewalk to that building,  which was referred to the board of  works. Isaac Crawford was appointed  as city auditor, and Dr. Schon wrote  regarding moving, the city dump. The  city clerk was also authorized to pay  $357, die amount of interest due the  Bank of Montreal.  POLITICAL POINTERS.  To Be in Operation at Granby  Smelter  IF   THERE  IS  PLENTY   OF  COKE.  And Manager Tonkiug Asserts Me Will Have  All the Coke Needed by September 1st  -Everything On the Ground.  Coke Figures for June.  Manager Tonkin gives out the following in regard to the coke output in  the Crow's Nest for the month of June:  Femie   6,56s tons.  Michel...   6,657 tons.  Total.   '3>225 tons-  The disposition of this coke was as  follows:  TONS.  Trail smelter 3,146  Greenwood smelter    ',902  4,799  363  ',77'  ,.i'44.  Lead, $4-12  Granby "        Nelson "         Sunset  "         Northport "         Total    13,225  The coal output for the rnpnlh of  June was as follows:  Coal Creek  34,586 tons,  Jylorrissey j8,i 24 tons,  Mie-hel.'. a8.542- tons,  Total  ���. ?i.353 tons. J f  In all probability there will be six  furnaces in operation at the Granby  smelter in about six weeks, or by Sept.  1 st. In fact, the two new furnaces  now being placed are expected to be  completed and ready for blowing in  before that date, making the complete  battery of six.  , . H. N. Galer, assistant manager of  the Granby Co., stated to the Pioneer  this week that all the machinery of  every kind for the new furnaces was  now at the smelter, and the work of  erection was well under way, so that  there seems little doubt but that in  six weeks' time they will he ready for  operation. Mr. Galer was also asked  about the coke supply by that time,  and said :  "At present we have a good supply  of coke, considering the amount coming in from Fairfax, Wash., and more  is coming in every day, so that for the  present we are all right for four furnaces. T notice that Mr. Tonkin,  manager of the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co., is reported to have stated in  Rossland this week that by the 1st of  September he will have a continuous  supply of coke ready for all the smelters in the province, and will have to  look for an outside market for the surplus. Should this prove to be the case,  we will have no trouble in keeping all  the furnaces in blast for an indefinite  time; forv as you know, we can readily  get o.ut ore enougl^for twice that number at our mines, and we have all the  power wo need. The only thing required is plenty of coke, about 300  tons daily for the six furnaces. Of  course, the operation of these six furnaces will also require a larger force of  men in our employ, at both the mines  and smelter,"  The liberal choice of candidates in  Greenwood riding lies between T. J.  Hardy and J. R. Brown.  No date has yet been set for either  the conservative or liberal nominating  conventions in Grand Forks riding.  Next week Friday the Greenwood  liberals will hold their nominating convention. The choice appears to lie  betweenT. J. Hardy and J. R. Brown.  John Riordan, the socialist candidate in this rrding, has received many  congratulations from friends on his  nomination. He believes that he will  win.  The boundary line between Greenwood and Grand Forks ridings runs  directly through the Summit City town-  site, leaving the B. C. mine in this  riding.  At the semi-monthly meeting of the  Phoenix liberals, held Thursday evening, Wm. Delahay and E. H. Mortimer were chosen as the local quota of  a committee to meet and set a date  and place for a convention, and also  to establish the ratio of the represent^  ation in the convention. ��  For a campaign committee the socialists in Grand Forks riding selected  the following:���Chairman, James  Harris, Grand Forks; secretary, Wm  H. Bam bury, Phoenix; treasurer, H. A.  Munroe, Phoenix; executive, J. T.  Lawrence and \V. H. Creiu, of Grand  Forks,and Dan Mclntominey, of Phoenix.  A cleanup of the mill at the Water-  lob mine, Camp McKiwiey, was had  a few days ago, and the gold shipped  to Spokane. ��� . :���  Last Sunday the Sunset smelter  blew in its second furnace, and the  Granby smelter placed its fourth furnace in operation.  The third furnace for the Sunset  smelter .was shipped from Spokane  last Friday, and will be put in place  as soon as possible. ;'"���..'  This week the Oro Denoro joined  the shipping list, the ore going to the  Sunset smeiter. A side track has  been put in at the mine.  In June the Quilp mine, Republic,  shipped 89 cars of ore, 19 of which  went to the Granby smelter, the  balance being sent to the Tacoma  smelter.  Thos.   McDonnell  and   H. S. Simmons  have Obtained a lease and bond  on  the Roderick  Dhu, in Long Lake  I camp," and will start development w ork  in a few days.  Development work has been started  on the Betts' and Hesperus claims in  South Wellington camp, by the Chicago capitalists that recently took hold  of the property. ,  Harry H. Shallenberger has resumed  work on his Crescent claim in Skylark  camp. This property is in the high  grade belt, and the work already performed   has made a splendid showing.  Returns for the last car of Pro\ i  dence ores gave $225 per ton. The net  weight of ore was 37,832 lbs.; the gross  value of which was $4,256.27. The  mineral contents per ton were: gold  1:92 ounces, silver 373.S ounces, and  lead 6.8 per cent.  Wednesday the long expected 150  h. p. boiler for the Snowshoe was received from the makers, the Jenckes  Machine Co., of Sherbrooke, Que,  and will be installed without dela\.  This is said to be the largest boiltr  yet installed at any mine in the Boundary.  Yesterday was the monthly payday  at the Granby mines, the amount disbursed for wages being about the same  as last month, or.a trifle less than $25,-  000. The Snowshoe's payday is next  Wednesday, when the amount paid,out  is expected to run close to$io,ooo for  the month.  A contract has been let by the International Coal and Coke Co., operating  coal properties at Blairmore, Alberta,  for the erection of 100 coke ovens,  and the work is now under way. It is  expected that the ovens will be reach  for use early in the fall, the product  being supplied to the Granby and other  Boundary smelters.  Results of High School Exams.  The results of the high school examinations all over the, province ha\ e  been made public, and it would seem  that the examinations were more than  usually difficult, from the small number that passed. In what is known as  Inspectorate No. 3, consisting of Yale-  Cariboo, the following are the published  figures ' of the results in Boundary  towns; which give a total of six having passed out of 41 taking the examination :  Cascade, candidates 1, passed o;  Grand Forks', candidates 17, passed 2;  Greenwood, candidates 16, passed 2:  Midway, candidates 3, passed 1; Phoenix, candidates 2, passed o; Kettle  River, candidates 2, passed 1.

There is no danger that  such realization can be otherwise than  beneficial to the mining interests of  the Uoundary and of llritish Columbia.  A number of por-ons in this riding  are interested in the coal and oil locations recently made in East Kootenay,  on the coveted two blocks of land for  which the C. I'. R. has been making  such a sensational fight. These men,  conservative and liberal alike, now  say they will bunch their votes and  cast them against the Mc Bride government nominee if the desired licenses  are not issued shortly. Whether this is  a bluff or not remams to be seen. A  few votes might turn the result either  way, in case of a close election.  Two weeks ago the Pioneer stated  that, in the opinion of thi.i paper, the  reason the Great Northern had temporarily deferred completing its branch  to Phoenix, was because of the recent  shrinkage in the New , York money  maiket. In a dispatch recently sent  from St. l'aul this is the identical  cause named.  ����������*�����������������  ��***���* ***������* *���**���������*+.  I-  B.

Any  other man on the socialist ��� ticket  would receive many less votes than  could Mr. Riordan.  YEARS MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  When the great gold-copper lodes of  the Boundary were discovered,   just  twelve years ago this month, the prospector who  located   tlicm���the   Old  Ironsides and   Knob   Hill���did  not  have a very high appreciation of their  potential value.   There were no smelters of any kind in British Columbia,  and die nearest railway   transportion  was nearly 100  miles  distant.    Tests  proved the ores to be of low grade���  very low������and some of the claims em-  embraced in the present Granby group  of mines were thought so little of that  the original locators let them lapse, and  they were lelocated.twoor three times.  There are indications that plans are  gradually maturing which will make  Phoenix even better known to the  mining world^it large than it is today.  The chances are they will not be a  long time in coming to a head, either.  As time went op, however, some had  faith" to believe that these properties  might be made to pay in time, but the  great majority of mining men and  metallurgists would not consider them  a second time. One man in particular, well known in the Boundary, and  who is still here, recently said to the  writer: "When I used to ride from  Greenwood through the present town-  site of Phoenix, which was then dense  limber, and looked up the hill, where  the Miner-Graves syndicate were pegging away on the shaft of the Old Iron  sides mine, I thought what fools they  were to be wasting their time 'and  money on such a low grade proposi  tion as that. But they knew what  they were doing, and have made it a  success, the laugh being now on me."  At last the Dominion government  has decided to give the lead miners a  bounty of $15 per ton on lead in smelted ore. The relief is tardy but it will  be none the less welcome to the languishing Slocan.  Political aspirants manywhere are  now figuring on their, chances for  nomination, and most of them will be  aware of their fate. in the next few  weeks.  The Nelson Tribune estimates that  the vote in Grand Forks riding at the  coming election will be about 500.  The Pioneer estimates it at 650.  Remembering these opinions, it is  not a little interesting to note the difference that years make, not only with  the ophnons of local mining men, but  with those on the outside. The attention attracted to the Boundary by the  John Stanton party, that visited Phoenix last month/was widespread and  most favorable. Ii'or instance, the fol  lowing from the New York Engineer  ing and Mining Journal, the leading  authority on mining and kindred subjects on the American continent, is  significant :  The mining and smelting operations  of the Granby company at Grand  Forks and Phoenix, B. C, have received unstinted praise from a source  which must be most gratifying to the  technical men who direct that successful enterprise. When a man so experienced as John Stanton gives his  unqualified approval' to the methods  in use, there is proper ground for congratulation. The cheap exploitation  of the enormous bodies of ore exposed  in the mines is to the credit of W. Y.  Williams, who has reduced mining expenditure to $1.20 per ton; the treatment of the product is under the dircc  tion of A. W. B. Hodges, who is making a copper matte for $1.35 per ton.  It is with great pleasure that we record  this successful work on the part of our-  professional friends.

Of course, it was only by the exercise of the best business methods,  coupled with ample capital and unbounded faith in the outcome, that  these desirable results have been accomplished, but they can and will be  accomplished by other concerns operating in the Boundary. In. fact, it is  believed that such is the case today.

People may differ from Mr.  Curtis respecting the wisdom of some  of his methods but it must be conceded  that he has been all in all a factor for  good in the provincial legislature.���  Grand Forks News-Gazette.  It is reported that there is a brisk  demand for miners in the Slocan.  Fort Steele prospectors arc surveying promising placer fields in the vicinity of St. Mary's river.  It is reported that the total coal  shipments for the Crow's Nest mines  for July will be 85,000 tons.  Another force of miners has been  sent to the Canadian-American Company's property at Gribble Island, up  the coast. . ,','.;  The Slocan Star paid another dividend ol $25,000 a few "days ago, bringing the total amount paid to date up  to $550,000.  Albert Banks,, manager of the Kootenay Perry Creek Mining Co., is in  Montreal purchasing the necessary machinery for the development of the  mine. ,',���'.'���..  The Boscowitz interest in the llri-  tainnia mine, on the coast, has finally  been acquired by-New York capitalists,  and this immense copper property is  now to be worked.  Several influential Slocan mine owners state that within a month, after the"  lead bonus has been granted, at least a  dozen of the lead mines of the Kootenay, now closed, will be re-operied and  worked.  In 1902 the North Star mine, in  East Kootenay, shipped 3,426 tons of  ore, the average value being 29.5 oz.  silver and 36,2 per cent lead. Some  22,000 lineal feet of work werv done  during the year, *  The installation of a concentrating  and chlorinization plant for treatment  of the ores of the Silver Cup and  Nettie I, mines in the L-trdeau means  that mining in this section is about to  enter on a new stage.  Last week's Rossland ore shipments  were as follows : Le Roi, 1,920; Center Star, 1,380; War Eagle, 1,290;  Kootenay, 465; Le Roi No. 2, 450;  Velvet, 50; Giant, 120. Total, 5,585  tons; total for year, 185,422 tons.  Poplar Creek, in the Lardeau, the  scene of the recent gold strike, is overrun with a crowd of gold hunters.  Location stakes are being placed over  every foot of ground in the immediate  neighborhood of the Golden Park  group.  A general convention of the executive council of the Provincial Mining  Association of British Columbia will  be held in Vancouver in August or  September, on a. date which will be  announced , in the columns of the  daily press.   .   "  'I he first concentrates to be shipped  out of the Rossland camp were forwarded last week to the Trail smelter by the  War Eagle-Centre Star mill at Silica.  Three thirty-ton - cars comprised the  consigmenl; and it 'is probable that  further lots will be shipped from time  to time.  One of the extraordinary mining romances that come from the Lardeau is  that of a Copper Mountain syndicate  composed of Nelson and Vancouver  men, who hold 27 claims on Copper  Mountain, staked two claims wide as  one claim, did not give sufficient width  to cover the ledge; which is claimed to  be 2,000 feet wide. The o\yners claim  to have copper ore consisting of bornit'  and chalcopyrite, over this huge'urea  and say their assays run up to 64 per.  cent copper. They only want a million dollars cash for "the biggest thing  in British Columbia."  D. J. MATHESON.  INSURANCE AGENT,  KIKE, LIFE, ACC.DENT.  Coihmissiouui' for taking; Affidavits.  Phoenix, B. C.

The figures for June will be  found in another column of this issue.  ������>       ��� ��� ,  For the first time in the history of  the Boundary, there are now eight furnaces in operation in its the three  smelters ��� four at Grand Forks, two  at Greenwood and two at Boundary  Falls. These eight furnaces are now  handling not far from 3,000 tons of  ore daily. This desirable state of  affairs is made possible by the heavier  shipments of Crow's Nest coke being  received.  M.  An exchange wisely remarks thusly:  The newspapers of a town are like  looking-glasses, and you see yourselves  as others see you. If your town is  doing business the local paper will  show it in its advertising columns, but  if the merchants are scared, spiritless men, with stocks of goods all jumbled together and no business doing,  the newpapers will show it by the lack  of space they take. If you wantdo  make your town a live town, the best  way to do it is to keep your advertisements.' constantly before the public in  your local paper. Who, wants to settle in a dead town whose merchants  are too . scared, to let outside people  know   there  is  any  business  in" the  town? ��� v  �����' :  The Vancouver World remarks  pertinently: There is one clause in  the form of application for enrollment  of voters which seems to occasion considerable misunderstanding. It reads:  "Any person applying for registration  in any electoral distrct while his name  appears on the register of any other  district, is liable to a penalty of $50."  The only way in which the law in this  respect could now be violated would  be by a citizen registering twice in  the present composition of the list.  All the old lists are destroyed, and the  fact that one's name has been on any  one of them has not the slightest bearing on his present position. Everyone  should bear this fact in mind.  ����� .  James Breen who is well known in  this camp', on account of his connection with the Brooklyn group of mines,  in which he was interested and managed two years ago, and on which he  spent $125,000 in development, has  been having his troubles with his smelter at Crofton, on Vancouver Island.  When it was completed, the mine  which was to furnish most of the ore  to keep the one stack in operation, the  Lenora, on Mount Sicker, got into  financial difficulties and was closed,  which forced the smelter to blow out.  The smelter is running again, however,  and Mr. .Breen has succeeded in securing a'lease oh the Lenora, and will  operate it.  A feature of the mineral exhibit of  the Spokane interstate fair this year  will be a miniature gold mining camp.  All of the mines on the great Corn-  stock lode in California, are now running, for the first time in fifteen years.  The world's record for cheap gold  mining is held, by the Spanish mine,  Nevada county, California, This mine  milled for 23.9 cents per ton.  It is stated that the production of  the Santa Rita Mining Company's  mines at Santa Rita, New Mexico, is  600,000 pounds of refined copper  per month. ���  A statement of the production of  gold, silver and lead in Idaho during  the calendar year 1902 shows the following: Gold, $1,510,015; silver, $7,  683,509;'Iead, $5,787,290. Total $14,-  980,814.  There'are but seven or eight antimony'smelters in the world, two of  them being in the United States���one  of them at San Francisco and the  other in New York. The first-named  of the two in this country is closed.  It is stated by the Pacific Coast Miner  that no antimony is now being mined  in the United States.  Some faint idea of what a wonderful  '���mine the' Copper Queen, at Bisbee,  Ariz:, is can be had when it is stated  that it has 140 miles of drifts and tunnels alone. It used underground  11,000,000 feet of timber in 1901.  Its ; production of copper for that year  was 20,000 rtons. It employs 1800  men. Its new smelter now being built  at Douglas, which, is 294 feet wide,  with a capaciiy of "treating 1800 tons  of ore every 24 hours, is almost com  pleted.

One day one of  his neighbors brought him one small  bottle of Chamberlain's t'olie, Cholera  and Diarrhoea Ketnedy as a ht.-t hope-  * I A big dose was given him while he whp  rolling about on the ground in great  agony, and in a few minutes the dose  was repeated. The good effect of the  medicine was poph nqtioed and within  an hour the patient was taking his first  sound sleep for a fortnight.

In this connection, it is also interesting to notice that another old  Boundary man is connected with tht  Lenora. N. Tregear. at one time connected with the LeRqi mine, and for a  year holding the same position at the  Winnipeg, near here, has been installed  in a similar position at the Lenora.  ��<t  It is getting so nowadays that when  a large advertiser plans a campaign of  publicity, the first thing he does is to  turn loqse an ocean of ink, For instance, it is noted that recently a Chicago cereal food'company made a purchase of 50 tons of printers'ink for  the sole purpose of printing the labels  of the packages to be used. The  largest publicity promoters have had it  drilled into thorn that no campaign  can be successful without a liberal use  of fusel oil, lamp black and other substances used for this purpose. .  ���������  Manager Tonkin, of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co., has been making  his first visit to the Boundary smelters  this week, and had a chance to note  that all the smelters were in full blast,  using up coke at the rate of about 350  tons per day. As Mr. Tonkin states  that he is now producing 13,000 tons  of coke mqntldy, he will doubtless be  able to keep the eiglit Boundary furnaces gqing most qf the time, providing he does not ship too large a share  0/ coke to other snickers. He doubt,  less noted, alsq, that one reason the  Granby smelter is ivblo to operate four  furnaces now is that the coke supply is  being augmented from ouside the province.

Boston View on Copper.  ��� If the copper mining and selling  industry was sufficiently'organized'to  make possible a 10 % rednction of  sales by all producers for two or three  months to come, it would be an easy  matter to maintain prices at 14)^  cents. All indications are that copper is now being consumed as rapidly  as it is being produced, the weakness  of the market being chiefly due to a  desire on the part of some producers  to sell copper that has not yet been  mined. .This, if persisted in, may  cause the, price of the metal to break  fractionally belowrd/cents per pound;  but should a decline occur, it promises  to be followed by a recovery, which  will carry the price above 15 cents  again. Producing interests have great  confidence in the future of the metal,  and a little lower price will cause  some of the large sellers to withdraw  from the market.���Boston Commercial.

A shoe which looms Iarjjc in the public  eye must combine in it positive elements of  price value, of durability, comf ortandbeauty.  The " Slater Shoe" because it makes  strenuous claims on public attention must  not only feel easy when worn, it must not  .only wear well,"but it must look well,���all  advertised claims, are unconsciously and  critically weighed by the first impression  conveyed to the mind through the eye in  its initial inspection of the shoe.  So the "Slater Shoe" with its high  prestige obtained by years of advertising  must not only fulfil the wearer's expectations  of fit, shape retention and wear, but its  beauty must meet with the instantaneous  approval of the wearer's eye in its most  critical moment, viz: the first glance, and  the succeeding closer scrutiny.  And the makers of the " Slater Shoe "  realising this fact have made "Slater Shoes"  not only foot houses of ease internally, but  foot palaces of beauty externally.
