Ross Visited l'hoenlx This Week- New  Spurs at Old Ironsides and Oro Dtnoro  ��� Loop lo Be Used.  Every once In a while the C. P, R,  finds that its increasing: boundary ore  traffic requires more betterments, and  then a spur or two is put in and,ah engine or two added to the motive power,  to say nothing of a dozen or so additional ore dump cars. Under normal  conditions, with a steady growth of ore  shipments,;,these betterments must  be put into effect about so often, and  just now is one of tjiose times.  Right furnaces In blast in the three  Houndary smelters mean that about  3,000 tons of ore, more or less, must  be moved daily, and the C. P. R.,  through its operating department, must  do the moving, in order to gather in  the upwards of a thousand dollars per  day, directly and indirectly, from the  ore freight. All of which snpplies the  grease to make the wheels go 'round.  To loqk into all these matters D,G;  Ross, of Nelson, superintendent of the  Kootenay-Boundary division of the C.  P. li'.j came into Phoenix last Wednesday, being accompanied by M rs. Ross.  Roudniftster Johnson also came up the  hill with Mr. Ross,, and together with  Wm; Yoien Williams they went over  the Gianby mines���the result of which  will be another long sidetrack at the  Old Ironsides ore bins; besides other  improvements in traekage facilities.  While here Mr,; Ross and Mr. Johnson walked over the uncompleted portions of the Brooklyn and Stemwinder  spurs with W. R., Williams of the Dominion Copper Co. About 4,000 feet  of track are to be laid here, if some  one does not change his mind. It  will be settled in a few days, after  McKenzie & Mann are communicated  with, and also providing they do not  forget all about it.  In addition to this, one spur has already been laid to the Oro Denoro,  and a second spur is being put down  for that mine this week.  Mr. Ross informed the Pioneer that  the loop at Hartford Junction, built  more than a year ago to do away with  the switchback, but never used, will  be put into commission shortly. The  two powerful Shay engines are once  more working on the I'hoenix hill, and  a much heavier one still is expected to  arrive from the makers at Lima, Ohio,  in September, when it will help to handle the I'hoenix ore traffic.  Mr. Ross brought his whole family  with him on this trip, and they were  quite comfortable in the unique private  caboose formerly used by his predecessor. He returned , directly to Nel  son Wednesday night, his car being  attached to the regular passenger train.  Will Use Four Horses.  J. F. Rover, of Graiid Forks, proprietor of tlie Grand Forks, Phoenix and  Greenwood stage line, which makes  connections both ways with the Great  Northern trains, a great accomodation  to travellers generally, was in the city  Wednesday and Thursday, having  driven the Premier's "party over the  Boundary. Mr. Rover states that,  contrary to the expectations of many,  the line is a success, so much so in  fact, that he will make it a four horse  line on the first of next month if he  can secure a suitable stage in time.  Quite frequently lie has to send out  two  rigs with passengers and baggage.  Candidates Nominated.  Islands���T. W. Patterson, Liberal.  Nelson���S. S. Taylor, Liberal.  Okanagan���T. W.

Work has been started on an additional large tank, near the Aetna shaft,  for the purpose of storing mine water  from the lower levels of the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill.  The'new barn for the Granby Co.  has been practically completed, and is  being used, there being accomodations  for 16 horses. The structure is most  complete in every way.'  It is given out that the prospects of  the promoters of Midway and Yernon  railway soon receiving substantial aid  towards construction from the Dominion government, are very favorable.  Wednesday was the semi-annual  date for the receipt of liquor and  other licenses by the city clerk. As  a result the city's bank account was  considerably increased for the time  being. *  Tlie only business done at the city  conncil meeting tin's week was the  reading of the V., V.and E. by-law  the second time. Alderman Riordan  occupied the chair in the absence of  tlie mayor.  Tlie Phoenix Electric Lighting Co.  has let the contract to W.

FURNISHED BY THE CASCADE COMPANY  Boundary Mining: Notes.  Surveys Already Made From Phoenix���Contract Reported Let to Lome A. Campbell, ol Rossland.  For several months���and after four  years of preparation���the only concern  using the magnificent water power of  the Kettle river at Cascade, through  ldng distance electric transmission  lines, was the Granby Co. at its mines  and smelter. Within the last month  the Snowshoe mine also lias been using  this power; which has cost $500,000  to equip and deliver in Phoenix,   -A  Arrangements have now been com-  pleted,however,by which asecond smelter; the Mother Lode, will utilize this  cheaper electric power, and discard  the more expensive steam power, in  use since the smelter first began operations, two or three years ago.";  '��� Last week S. S. Fowler, of Nelson  general manager of the Cascade Water,  Power & Light Co., was in Phoenix  with Wm. Anderson, of Cascade, the  superintending engineer, in connection  with the extension of the company's  powpr line to Greenwood and the  Mother Lode smelter. It is understood that the contract for the clearing  of the five mi les of right of ���: way required, and the erection and equipment of the pole line, has been awarded to Lome A. Campbell, of Rossland.  The necessary surveys for the new line  have already been completed, and the  active work of construction will be begun shortly. In the course of a month  or six vveeks thereafter the pole line  can be completed if there are no delays on acconnt of lack of material.  The substitution of electric for steam  power at the Greenwood smelter is a  long step towards the more economical  reduction of Mother Lode ore, and it  is believed that Manager Goodell, of  the Sunset smelter, located three  miles further down Boundary creek, will  also have the same thing in mind in  the near future ��� especially as he is  now putting in place a third furnace.  Recent information from Fairview is  to the effect that the New Fairview  Corporation continues to employ between 60 and 70 men in its Stemwinder  mine., .  The third furnace has been received from Spokane at the Sunset  smelter at Boundary Falls, and a  force of men are now at work putting  it in place.  So far about ten cars of ore have  been shipped from the dump of the  Morrison mine, Deadwood camp, to  the Mother Lode smelter. It is expected that about 1,000 tons will be  shipped altogether.  Last Saturday was the anniversary  of the shipping of the first car of ore  put of Phoenix, that event occurring  July ir, 1900. .-Since.then the Granby  mines have shipped a total of over  780,000 tons of ore.  From the last car of ore from the  E, P, U, mine p. W. McVicar received  $3211 net, or an average of $ rid per  ton. After paying all costs he'had  $1200 clear.' There arc ten men employed on this property.  Since eight furnaces have been in  blast in Boundary smelters, requiring  more men at the mines generally,  there has been a scarcity of men for  mine work. The quotas are gradually  being made up, however.  A claim near Eholt that is attracting  attention is the Boulder, under lease  to Mike Tebo. It has two shafts, 12  and 15 feet deep, all in ore, and the  Qre body on the surface has been uncovered for r,30o feet in length.  On the Queen of Sheba claim in  Deadwood camp, Geo. Andrews is  taking out some fine looking ore. He  is now down to a depth of twenty-five  feet in an incline shaft. The ore lies  between two well defined walls of  lime and porphyry and gives every indication of permanence. L. A. Smith  of Anaconda, and Geo. Andrews own  the property.  PREMIER McBRIDE  IN THE BOUNDARY  Thinks Election Prospects Are  Bright.  IS COMING AGAIN BEFORE ELECTION  Will Take No Action Regardful East Kootf  aav Cod and Oil Lands Till Ballots Are  Cast.  POLITICAL POINTERS  Tennis flames Saturday.  The Phoenix tennis courts are now  as good as any in the interior, being  in almost perfect condition. Last  Saturday Messrs. Gray, Hodge, Merritt  and Wil mot, of Greenwood, came up  and played several sets with members  of the Phoenix club, the results being  as follows:  In the doubles Boucher and Smith  beat Gray and Hodge, 2���1, and  Merritt and Wilmot beat Spier and  Morkill, 2���o.  In the singles Boucher beat Gray,  2���1;   Hodge   beat Smith, 2���1 Mer  ritt beat   Morkill,  Spier, 2���o.  2���1; Wilmot heal  having acted as organist for the last  year. Mr. Green was also surprised  with a purse.  Tuesday Nurse Howell, of the staff  of the Phoenix General Hospital, had  the misfortune to slip on the front  steps of the institution and break her  collar bone. She will probably be  laid up for two or three weeks.  James Marshall has been selected  as the delegate from Phoenix Aerie  No. 158 to attend the provincial con  vention of the Fraternal Order of  Eagles, which will, he held at Victoria  July 27th, 28th and 39th. At the  meeting a delegate to the national  convention at New York will be chosen.  Preparing For Labor Day.  At   last   Monday's   meeting  of the  Phoenix   Trades and I^ihor Council a  committee   was appointed to meet the  city council and secure its cooperation  in   the  celebration  of Labor  Day in  I'hoenix   this year,   which occurs on  Monday, Septenibr   7th.    Tlie    committee   met   the city council Wednesday evening, and it was decided to call  a  public meeting of citizens and business   men, which   will   be  held  next  Tuesday  evening  in   the lower room  in Miners' Union hall at eight o'clock,  to  consider   the  subject, and arrange  for ways and means for the celebration,  there  is  a general feeling that such a  celebration   should   be  held, and the  Trades  and   l^abor council have fully  decided  to  go  on with it, but would  prefer  to   work   with all the people of  the town in arranging the details.  L'pwards of 400 names have been  placed on the voters' list in Greenwood riding.  As the Pioneer was going to press  last night, the Liberal convention for  Greenwood riding was being held.  Premier McBride held conferences  with the conservatives in Grand Forks  Phoenix, Greenwood and Midway this  week.  The Phoenix Conservative Association has opened committee rooms in  the old school house on Dominion  avenue.  It is asserted that over 275 voters  have been registered in Phoenix already. The Phoenix vote at the last  election was 167.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, secretary of the Interior Liberal Council,  is taking a trip into the Sirnilkameen,  on an organizing tour.  It is probable that the Liberal committees from the three associations in  this riding will meet on July 20th, to  arrange for a convention.  The socialists have organized at  Boundary Falls, and say they will do  the same at Eholt, Mother Lode and  Midway in the next two weeks.  October 31.si has been set for election day. H. C Kerman is returning  officer for this riding and George Cunningham for Greenwood ridiug.  Hon. Richard McBride, premier of  the province, visited Phoenix last Wednesday on a trip through the interior.  His last visit here occurred about two  years ago, when he was minister of  mines, which position he shortly thereafter resigned.  This time the first minister was  quite naturally looking into the political situation, with an election in sight,  and after going as far as East Kootenay, expressed himself as pleased with  the prospects for the conservatives at  the polls.  The premier stopped in Grand  Forks over Tuesday night, spending  most of the next day in Phoenix; and  then dtiving to Greenwood, leaving  direct for the capital the next day.. He  was accompanied by Wm. McNeill, assistant; commissioner of lands and  works, the premier himself being the  chief commissioner. ;  The Pioneer man asked the premier the direct question as to whether  the government intended to issue coal  prospecting licenses for tracts on the  much talked of two blocks of valuable  land in East Kootenay.  In replying to the question Mr. McBride made his position on this question quite clear. Nothing would be  done in the matter until after election,  for the excellent reason, the premier  explained, that it was quite proper  that the present administration should  be endorsed by the people before tak  ing action on such an important matter. In fact, he did not think any  other course would be right.  The premier stated that those who  had acquired legal rights in East Kootenay should be protected in the exercise of the same. Hon. Green and  Hon. Wilson, now in Ottawa,would insist on the allowance of Bill No. 16,  which nullified the C. P. R.'s claim to  the lands in dispute. And further  than that, if the Dominion government  should happen to disallow, Bill No. 16,  it would be re-enacted by the' British  Columbia government as often as it  might be disallowed.  Joint I. 0.0. F. Installation.  Tuesday evening a joint installation  of the Knights of Pythias lodges of  Phoenix and Greenwood took place  at the latter place, the installation officer being deputy grand master David  Whiteside, of Grand Forks. Some 2-5  or 30 Pythians \yrnt down from Phoe-  hix, and two were present from the  Grand Forks lodge. After the cerem-,  onies a supper was seaved to the visitors. In January a joint installation  will be held in Phoenix.  J. C. Poff, of Vancouver, representing the Sun Life, J. Bum Morgan, of  Grand Forks, representing the Mutual  .ife of New York, and L. M. Rice,  representing the Great West Life, were  some  of the  insurance agents in the  itv this week.  Latest Prices of Metals.

According to those present Thursday evening, if the audience at the  McCoy-Kerr concert had been equal  to the entertainment, the house would  have been crowded. As it was, the  house was small.

When the assistance given  to the Eastern Canadians in the way  of a tariff is considered, the silver-  lead producers are getting no more  than they are entitled to. Whether  impending Dominion elections, or the  election u. this province had anything  to do with the matter, does not appear on the surface.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  After Four Years-After a lapse  of about four years of decadence,.the  Slocan now has every appearance of  assuming a bright future, and one, if  not outdoing the years of 1896 and  1897, will be equally as prosperous.--  Sandon .Mining Review.

STRICTLY   BUSINESS  It does not seem to be the intention of the Dominion government  to do anything satisfactory along the  line of stopping Japanese immigration,  as promised to this province repeated  ly. Do the rank and file believe that  this sort of thing will help the. liberal  cause in the elections, now not so far  away ? If they do, they reckon without their host.  Lowery's Claim has followed in the  steps of the Ozonagram, and has preempted a choice spot in the now almost overcrowded journalistic graveyard, but the Colonel asserts that the  Claim will be resurrected at no distant  date. Should that occur it will mean  more trouble for the editor.  R'. W. Brock, of trie Geological Sur  vey, advises prospectors to search for  diamonds, being confident that ,they  can be found.

With the Russian bear making faces  at the mikado of Japan, there is good  chance for lively and interesting fracas  when the latter gets ready to resent it.  The little brown men are known to be  among the best of, fighters when they  once make up their minds to it.

The Highland Boy Mining Company, Utah, produced last year 12,-  500,000 pounds of copper.  Investors in the mineral and metallurgical industries' of the United  States received in April dividends  amounting to $5,505,045,  Hoisting engines in very deep  mines in a few instances run at a  speed of 6,000 feet per minute, but  the ordinary speed is 1,000 to 3,000  feet  per  minute  in most deep mines.  The Rio Tinto copper mine, Spain,  produced 34,478 tons of copper in the  year 1902. Thc total profits of the  company for this period were,$7,206,-  530, of which $4,443,780 was distributed in dividends.  There" is no business in the world  today safer or more profitable than  mining. Statistics show that there is  45 per cent, less failures in mining  than in any other industry and dividends of 25 to 100 per cent are not at  all unusual.  A bond has been taken on 105  copper claims owned by New York  men in Copper River valley above  Valdes. The amount is said to be  $12,000,000. The Glad Laugh oh  Latouch island, Prince William sound,  is reported sold for $r,000,000.  The Western Federation of Miners,  although hut twelye years old, claims  lo have 200 unions and a membership  of 75,000.

G MINING  Crawford creek iron deposits are  attracting attention. ,  In the Slocan the ^demand for  miners still continues.  A three mi'e tram line is to. be  built to connect the.Britannia mine  with tide water. 'ii,  The Bosun mine continues to ship  steadily, sending out its usual shipment of 100 tons a. week.  Confirmation of the richness of tho  new Poplar "creek gold fields, in the  Lardeau, is now being received.  Five carloads of machinery for the  zinc plant have arrived at the Payne  and is rapidly being placed in position.  The Byron N. White Company  have entered into a contract with the  Trail smelter for the Slocan Star output.  The bonus on lead will undoubtedly  cause the Sullivan people to push forward the completion of their smeltei  at Marysville.  The B. C. Exploring Syndicate,  owning and operating the Iron Mask  mine, near Kamloops, will probably  build a concentration plant.  Application is to be made for 400  inches of water in Springer creek.to'run  the large concentrator plant shortly to  be erected by the Arlington mine  owners.  The' Jackson mine, at McGuigan,  has started up with a few men and the  force will be increased before long.  This property has paid $20,000 in  dividends.  Last week's Rossland ore shipments  were as follows : Le Roi, 3,840; Center Star, 1,470; War Eagle, 1,170.  Kootenay, 279; Le Roi No. 2, 45��'  Velvet, 125; Giant, 60; Jumbo, 100.  Total, 7,485 tons; total for year, 192,-  997 tons.  A third stamp mill will be running  on Wild Horse creek this year. The  Pilot (Ymir) company operating the  Pilot group has perfected its arrangements for the erection of a mill, and  machinery has been ordered. ' The  property lies about nine miles up the  creek from Ymir.  The Provincial Mining association  directs attention to the fact that there  are now twenty branches in the province, and that other points are seeking  information with a view to organizing.  An appeal is made to all branches to  to put forth every effort to increase  membership in the hope that the president's ideal of 12,000 members may  be realized by the first of the year.

During Ms traveling about  anil afterwards in rami ing upon hi*  claim, he encfiuntero.l inurli bad water  which, together with tbe severe heat,  gave him a very severe diarrhoea which  ltsertnrd almost impossible to check,  nnd along in .June tbe case became so  bad lie-wrprctprHotlie. One day one of  bis 11 ighbors brongbt him one small  bottle of Chamberlain's < 'olio, Cholera  and Diarrhoea Remedy as a lu+t hope.  A big dose was ciyen him u'lile he was  rolling about on l|ie ground in great  agonV, and jn a few minutes the dose  was repeated. The good ol'eo.t of the  niedicjue was sopn nqtieeil anil within  an hour the patient was taking bis first  sound sleep for a fortnight. That one  little bottle worked a complete cure, and  be cannot help feeliriir grateful. The  season for Lowel disorders being at. hand  suggests this ittm. fold by all druggists. _________  No man or woman will hesitate to  speak well of Chamberlain's Stomach  and Liver Tablets after once trying  them. They always produce a pleasant  movement of tho bowels, improve the  appetite and strengthen the digestion.  For sale bv all druggists.  I  The Pioneer has been favored with  Bulletin No. 1 i, from the Bureau 01  Provincial Information at Victoria, pp-  sided over by R. E. Gosnell, formerly  a newspaper man in the, Boundary.  Overlooking the fact that the pamphlet is nearly two months late in being  published from the time it is dated���  an old weakness, by'the way, of almost anything issued by the provincial  government���the document is one of  the most useful yet issued. It is a  compact resume of the mining industry, as it appears today in the province,  and while not so voluminous as the  minister uf .mines' report, it has a sufficient number of tables of statistics  to answer almost any purpose. Dpubt-  less Mr. Gosnell will.be only too  pleased to send it to any one writing  for it.  While the socialists have a candidate in the field in this riding, the liberals and conservatives do not seem to  to, be in any hurry to nominate their  men. This, rsome of the friends of  the would-be candidates naively assert  is because the nominees are expected  lo supply a goodly share of the expenses of the campaign, and the longer  it is the, mure it will cost. Just the  same, some of the wisest of the politi-  tical campaigners do not agree with  this idea, for the reason that in a campaign of,. education, and especially  where there is supposed to be a considerable floating vole, the first man in  the field has a chance to get a certain  number of votes pledged. This John  Riordan, the socialist candidate, is  undoubtedly proceeding to attend to.  ***  Many of the political leaders do not  like the idea of t|]e local campaign  being conducted from the coa,st or  from Nelson W- Rq.ssla.hd, and in conservative and liberal ranks alike, there  is a tendency hereabouts, to a large  extent, to paddle their own canoes in  local matters.  .��������  Recently the '"Pioneer, received a  mimeograph copy of a dispatch, or  what purported to be such, from the  management of the St. Louis World's  Fair, and was asked to give the same  gratuitous insertion.'��� The item was  an advertisement for the fair, pure and  simple, aiid was one of the countless  schemes put forward to give the- fair  free advertising. It is needless.to say  that we could not find room for the  story, if it did'have the namo-of Canada und Sir Wilfrid Luurier worked in  a few times to give it the right kind of  flavor and, make the pill go down.  Some of our contemporaries were  caught all right, and gave the article  the space of a column or two, but  possibly the editors of those papers  did not realize that they were being  "worked." Such, howeyer, is the ease.  hi  As regards advertising, the St. Louis  fair is being conducted along the same  lines as that at Buffalo a couple of  years ago, which, as a direct result,  proved a huge failure from a financial  standpoint. Mighty little money will  the newspapers ever see from the St.  Louis people, and why, when this is the  case, the fair should be given a lot of  gratuitous publicity, passes p/ir pom:  prehensiqi'y It is a safe bet that not  one cent will any Qana.d.ia.n paper ever  see of the fair money.  ' ���������  As the campaign is drawing on the;  people at large are looking for political  news in their local papers. ��� The Pioneer will take pains''to secure and  publish all the news that is worth having of all the politcal parties. In this  regard, as in all others in the past, it  will be the policy of this paper to be  a newspaper. Here is the way the  Cranbrook Herald editor sizes up the  idea of publishing political news, and  he is not far put.:  ''T|te. edhqr- qf the Pernio Free  Press does not believe in printing political news. The Herald does. Both  papers are privileged to follow their  respective courses. The Herald is independent and is not afraid to give the  news, as no party or individual, aside  from the editor, is in a position to dictate its policy. That makes it easier  for the Herald and better for its readers, as they have a chance to read the  news. And pqliticaj gqssip is always  good flews,."  |rnmlgrallon Returns.  TIiq immigration returns for the  year ending June 30 last show 124,655  arrivals. This is a marvelous growth,  being 52,279 over last year.

IIP  NORTH   FORK  KETTLE   RIVER  Boundary Coal Mines, Ltd., Has Bonded lis  Properties, and Work Will be Started  Shortly.  The directors of the Boundary Coal  Mines, Ltd., at a meeting in Spokane  at the office of the company a few days  ago, decided by a unanimous vote lo  bond the property of the company to  J. R. Carling of Exeter, Ont. The  directors present were: C. E. Mitchell,  president; E. T. Bartlett, vice-president; W. H. Meyers, treasurer; Percy  F. Godenrath, secretary; W,. E. Wing  and George A. McLeod. J. R. Carh  ing was also at the meeting, accompanied by J. A. Mackay of Saginaw,  Mich. The gentlemen represent New  York capital which is said to be going  into the mines of the Boundary dis  trict upon a large scale.  The terms of the bond provide for  the expenditure by, the purchasing  parties of sufficient inoney to put a  diamond drill outfit upon the property  and to thoroughly exploit the claims.  Work is to be started within the next  four weeks, by which time the property-  is to be inspected by experts.  The deal provides for the formation  of a company to be capitalized at $2,-  500,660, in which the Boundary shareholders receive share for share. Of  this capital stock $1,500,060 is to remain in the treasury:  The company wa.s formed a few  mqnths ago by Percy F. Godenrath  and a number of local men. The  capital is .1,200,000 shares with 500,-  000 in the treasury, The property  comprises 2,560 acres in the North  Fork coal basin, 50 miles north of  Grand Forks. George A. McLeod of  Grand Forks, was instrumental in interesting the eastern, parties.  The Los Angeles Mining Review  says that according to a late estimate,  California has 112 working mines,  valued at $8,000,000, and giving employment to 609 men; also 23 reduction plants, cqmpri^iiig 320 stamps  and fqur- cyanide plants,, with a. capacity qf 1 Son" ttms a day,   '  TICKETS  TO ALLTOLNTIS  East and West  "VU  Great  Northern  Railway  .
