Granby's holdings in this camp now  include, i, 168 acres of mineralized territory.  'I'he Carmi, up the West Fork, is to  be worked once more, this time by a  new English syndicate, it is said.  Specimens from the LeRoi McKinney look almost good enough to  eat, they are so rich in gold and silver.  Diamond drill contractors assert  that men for theii work are not plenty.  Several more could be used in the  various mines of the Boundary.  Of the Snowshoe's output this week,  1,781 tons were sent to the B.C. Copper Co.s smelter and 2,635 tons to the  Trail smelter of the Consolidated Co.  Quite a number of Boundary residents have invested in B. C. Copper  Co. shares this year, and they feel  pretty good over it, with a 40 cent  dividend announced.  Members of the New York syndicate having an option on the Gold  Drop group, Wallace, mountain, West  Fork, are expected to arrive in the  Boundary almost any time now.  A representative of the Stemwinder  mine, Fairview camp, was here a few  days ago, looking for men, and picked  up two or three. Most of the miners  seem to prefer the Boundary proper.  Work is under way at the Sudbury,  Deadwood camp, where the electric  hoist was placed in operation last  week. President Schiewe is on]the  ground looking after matters personally.  B. C. Copper Co. smelter this week  treated 5,231 tons of Mother Lode  ore; 425 tons of Napoleon; 1,905 tons  Oro Denoro; 59 tons Mountain Rose;  3,318 tons Snowshoe and other custom  ores; total 10,938 tons.  Promises made by high officials of  the C. P. R. for more ore dumps for  Boundary traffic, have not yet been  fulfilled, and nearly all the big shippers  bnve difficulty in getting cars enough  to keep things moving.  Ten stamps are now dropping  steadily at the Cariboo-McKinney  mine, and it not unlikely that repairs  will be Jriade; to'the' balance- oFt-he  battery, consisting of ton more stamps,  and that they also will be put in commission.  There is no let up in the activity at  the War Fagle, the men using a large  tent as a bunkhouse till the new building is completed. Meantime work is  being rushed on the structure,'^ and  preparations for active mining continue apace.  The maximum voltage thus far used  by the West Kootenay Power & Light  Co. on its Boundary long distance  transmission power lines, is 40,000  volts. Later it will be raised to 60,-  000 volts, according to the original  programme.  Kngmeer Burnett started this week  on the surveys for the proposed aerial  tramway for conveying ore from the  Dominion Copper Co.'s mines in this  camp to the company's smelter at  Boundary Kails, an estimated distance  of five miles.  Two trolley locomotives are now in  use at the No. 3 tunnel of the Granby  mines-necessitated by the pressure  for shipping from this one outlet over  tlie Great Northern, owing to the fact  that the C. P. R. takes out but little  Granby ore these days.  Work is actively progressing on a  water system for tlie several buildings  at the Snowshoe mine. Several miles  of woven wire pipe have been laid, the  water to be taken from one of the  head streams of Fourth of July creek,  and pumped by electricity to storage  tanks.  At a meeting of the Maple Leaf  Mines, Ltd., held in Grand Forks last  week, the following directors were  elected: C. A. Mix, II. W. Young, W.  W. Fee, A. J. Fee and J. B. Fee.  The company owns the Maple Leaf  group of six claims in Franklin camp,  on which a force of five men is at  work, the tunnel now being in 60 feet,  and much excellent ore having been  encountered.  Since the C. P. R.'s almost utter  failure to provide the ore dumps  needed for the Boundary traffic, the  ('.. P. R. in its extremity, is using  G. N. ore dumps occasionally. This  happens because the C. P. R. takes  the B. C. Copper Co.'s Napoleon ore  from the G. N. to the Greenwood  smelter, and has the right, at a stipulated price, to use other company's  cars on the so-called return trip.  MANY ODD FELLOWS'  OFFICERS INSTALLED  Greenwood, Grand Forks and  Phoenix Lodges.  New officers have recently been inducted into office in the three lodges  of Independent Order of Odd Fellows  in the Boundary, in Greenwood,  Grand Forks and Phoenix.

D  L.S.N.G Hualr  Currie  L.S.V.G G R McCabe  As has been anticipated for some  little time, the British Columbia Copper Co., Ltd., has joined the ranks of  Boundary dividend payers, the first  disbursement, according to report,  amounting to $200,000, and will be  payable on September 4U1.  This action was taken at a meeting  of the directors of the company, held  late last week in New York city at the  head offices of the concern. The  dividend is specified as quarterly, and  is at the rate of 25 cents per share,  with 15 cents per share extra, making  a total payment of 40 cents per share  for this initial dividend. It is to be  made from earnings and surplus funds  available for this purpose. R. H.  Eggleston, the secretary of the company, is quoted as saying that the  company also has sufficient funds now  on hand to meet the next two: regular  quarterly dividends.  The Bntish Columbia Copper Co.  has a capital of $3,000,000, divided  into 600,000 shares of $5 each. Gf  this amount there are 503,000 shares  outstanding now, the balance being in'  the treasury. This dividend places the  stock of the company on a twenty per  cent dividend basis, the shares being  now quoted on the New York arid  Boston curb around $10 each.  About a year ago the   British  Col-f .   The new plant of the company has,  umbia Copper Co. began the  work of 1 of course, been paid for entirely andV  dismantling its old small, two-furnace  smelting works at Greenwood, and installing three large modern blast furnaces, which were expected to handle,  when operated at full capacity, about  2,000 tons of ore per day. There  were many unforeseen delays not only  in completing the new works, but afterwards in getting them in full commission, including coal shortage. However, everything was finally completed,  and one and then another of the furnaces blown in. The third furnace,  making the full battery, was blown in  June 17 th, and since then the plant has  been working at full capacity,. averaging close to 2,000 tons of ore daily.  It is estimated that, under the  present conditions, the company can  turn out about 1,500,000 pounds of  copper fine per month, when continuously operated. The converter is  now working double shift, as against  one shift previously, handling also the  copper matte from the smelter of the  Dominion Copper Co. The statement  has been made that the British Columbia Copper Co., by reason: of its  many economies introduced in the new  smelting works, has brought its cost of  smelting down to $1.18 per ton���admitted to be an extremely low figure  for any reduction works.  good surplus accumulated in addition.  The' former capital of the company  was $2,000,000, but in January last  this was increased by $1,000,000,  116,160 shares being offered to shareholders at par, and practically all of it  was taken. At the present time there  are said to be on the company's books  nearly 1,200 shareholders, some of  them having holdings as high as  15,000 shares.  In Deadwood camp is located the  chief mine of the company,, the Mother  Lode, while the Emma, the Oro Denoro and B. G. mines in Summit  camp, are also owned and operated;  the Napoleon mine at Boyd's, Wash.,  and the Lone Star and Washington,  near DanviUe, Wash. In the last year  upwards of $100,000 has, been expended in development at the company's mines, to prepare them for the  present increased output, all under the  supervision of Frederic Keffer, the  company's engineer, who has been  with the company from its inception,  nearly, ten years ago. The new  smelter was designed and constructed  under the immediate charge of J. E.  McAllister, manager of the company.  A large tonnage from the Snowshoe  mine, in Phoenix camp, is being used  at this.smelter.  ......  Brown-Skldmore Wedding.  Wednesday afternoon at the residence of Wm. Searle, on Gospel Hill,  Josephine Mary Brown was united in  marriage to Isaac Skidmore, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Samuel  Lundie. Only a few immediate friends  of the happy couple were present at  tbe wedding. Mr. and Mrs. Skidmore  left the same day for Nelson on a  honeymoon trip, and are taking up  housekeeping here on Golden Eagle  avenue on their return.  NEW SPUR GRADE  IS COMPLETED  Cost Nearly $100,000 When  Completed.  Last Tuesday T. J. Gallagher, having completed his work of grading on  the new Great Northern spur to the  Granby's Victoria shaft, paid off the  men, some 90 in number, and they  departed for other fields.  The new spur is about a mile and a  half long, not including a side track at  the end for a warehouse, and a second  track at the end of the switchback for  the new powder magazine. Some of  the work was exceedingly heavy, and  while all of it overlooks the city, making it bad for blasting, it is to Mr.  Gallagher's credit that not a man was  seriously hurt on the job, and the  damage done from blasting would be  covered by a $50 bill. Some idea of  the importance of this spur may be  had when it is remembered that the  cost to the railway company, when the  spur is finally ready to haul ore, will  be not far from $100,000.  As soon as the graders were done,  the steel gang was on hand and has  already begun the work of putting  down the rails, which will be pushed  forward as rapidly as possible. There  is one trestle, over a fork of Twin  creek, near the Granby stables, which  will be constructed by Porter Brothers  This trestle is to be 532 feet long and  from 30 to 50 feet in height. As soon  as the steel reaches the site of the  trestle, the timbers will be hauled in  and put together in a short time.  Ample provision is made for sidings  on the spur at the ore bins for the  facilitating of handling the ore dumps.  Near the upper end of this spur the  Great Northern and C. P. R. tracks  are so close that if Uncle Jim Hill was  on his private car there, and Sir  Thomas Shaughnessy was also on his  own track at that point, they could  shake hands and congratulate each  other on the immense ore tonnage that  they would each get from that Victoria  shaft in the future  BRITISH   COLUMBIA   COPPER   CO.'S NEW SMELTING WORKS  Among the Railway Men.  L. A, Campbell is using some of his  Bonnington Falls "juice" to pump  water for the irrigation system on his  ranches in the Kettle river valley,  below Grand Forks. Over near Midway gasoline engines are in use for the  same purpose,  Midway & Vernon affairs are still in  the same somnolent condition of the  last year or two, and R. Smailes is still  stayting with them in the east.  The C. P. R. steel gang has nearly  finished putting down the heavier iron  on the Phoenix branch, and soon will  begin on the new Rawhide spur.  President Louis W. Hill, of the  Great Northern, when in Prinfceton  last week, was quoted as saying that it  did not look as though the rails would  reach that place this year.  It is not unlikely that the C. P. R.  will place one or two switch engines  permanently in Phoenix, assembling all  ore trains at Hartford Junction, and  dispatching them direct from there to  the smelters.  A. L. Clements, who for the last  eight years has been agent for the C  P. R. at Grand Forks, and has many-  friends all over the Boundary, has been  promoted to a more important post at  Vancouver. His successor has not  yet been named.  Thursday the following Great Northern officials were here: W.W.Broughton,  general traffic manager, St. Paul;W. P.  Kenney, assistant traffic manager, St  Paul; H. M. Adams, assistant traffic  manager, Seattle, and P. H. Burnham,  district freight and passenger agent,  Grand Forks. W. T. Clark, of We-  natchee, an irrigation expert, accompanied them. They had been to  Keiemeos, and thence took team to  Princeton, where they examined the  coal mines. While in Phoenix they  took a look at the Granby mines and  the new trackage work recently done  here.  Latest Prices lo Metals.

It is a healthy sign when two of  Boundary's important copper producers  are paying dividends and a third about  ready to do likewise. And this, too,  from rock that, ten years ago, some of  the best experts,' so considered, did not  think a profit could ever be extracted  from our low grade ores.  BrltlrJi JraTulists Trip.  A party of British jonrnalists left  England on the S. S. Virginian sailing  from Liverpool on July 19th, for a  tour through Canada. The party is  composed of ten representatives of  Newcastle, Glasgow, Dundee and Belfast. Three journalists will be the  guests of the Canadian Government,  and on arrival at Montreal, the Grand  Trunk Railway System have extended  to them the courtesy of their line.  They will then proceed to North Bay  en route to the Pacific coast.  The tour is intended to give these  gentlemen an opportunity of seeing for  themselves- the develoyment o�� Canada, and to show them the valuable  resources that Canada can boast of.  From    dispatches   published  from  London, it  would  appear  that "final  and unalterable" has  again   been inserted in the amendment of the British  North American Act.    If it  has  and  the bill passes both houses, it is  quite  evident that the trouble is not yet over,  even though Sir  Wilfred   Laurier  was  successful    in   securing  the   insertion  once more.    The province  of British  Columbia    cannot    be   browbeaten,  either at Ottawa or London, and   better terms will be worked for till  they  are obtained.  PROVINCIAL.  Now and again comes the story that  there is much likelihood of a coal  scarcity' next winter, not necessarily  because of labor troubles, but because  of the increasing demand all through  the west, caused primarily by the vast  increase of business and population  generally. One would think that users  of this great necessity, after the experience of last winter all through the  Canadian west, would stock up in the  summer, even though it does tie up  some funds for a few months. A stitch  in time gathers no moss.  Signs accumulate' that British Columbia is on the eve of such a legitimate expansion in mining development  and production as has never been  heard of before. To a large extent we  have gone through the prospective, the  formative and the wildcatting stage���  for the latter seems to follow the legitimate, as the day does the night���and  now is the day of increased production.  Capital that has been flirting with  narrow though rich veins in faraway  climes, is sitting up and taking notice  of British Columbia. It likes the story  of increasing output, and more than  all, it prefers the tale of steady dividends.  Fernie is likely to have a Y.M.C.A.  organized in the near future.  Immediate construction of the Great  Northern line from Fernie to Michel is  promised.  Jhon Houston has not been able to land  his printing plant at Prince Rupert yet  and begin his new weekly, the Empire.  R. J. Burde,,Iate city editor of the  Victoria Colonist, will establish a  weekly newspaper at Alberni, the first  issue to appear August 1.  .- Iowa capitalists have just concluded a  deal for Vancouver Island timber limits  to the extent of 76 square miles; mills  will^be'erected on the Island and "the  lumber exported lo the states.  The output of logs for, the coast district ofthe province for the,-fiscal year,  amounted to 339,343,662 feet. The  scaler estimates that the cut from the  Dominion lands and the interior will  equal that amount, making-app'roxi ma-  tely 700,000,000 as a grand aggregate.  The next Dominion Educationa.l as  sociation, recently in session at Tcr  onto, has named Victoria as the meet-  ing'place of the association for i$oo,  the next convention of the association.  Alex. Robinson, provincial superin  tendent of education, has been elected  president of the association.  . Last Sunday the G. N. passenger  train started away from the station  here, gave a merry whistle and was off  on its journey to Grand Forks minus  the conductor. On'the hither side of  Jordan the loss of the captain ofthe  ship was discovered, and a stop made.  Meantime one of the Palace livery's  swift teams was catching up to the  conductorless - train, together with the  mail. That engineer must have used  his imagination about the starting  signal.  The man .who perpetrated the following had his upper stopevwell filled with  choice grey matter:"  He didn't have a dollar, he didn't  have a dime, his clothes looked as  though they had served their time.  He didn't try to-kill himself to dodge  misfortune's whacks. Instead, he got  some ashes and rilled five dozen sacks!  Then next he begged a dollar. In the  paper, in the morn, he advertised tin  polish that would put the sun to scorn.  He kept on advertising, and just now,  suffice to say, he's out in California at  his cottage on the bay.  No one knows better than the man  who has encountered the genus wildcat,  just how sharp its" claws are. Fortunately, the proportion in the Boundary  is not large; the animal does not seem  tc thrive in these parts, we are thankful  to say.- ���    ��� , S '     .'.  .����  Oneorthefniost sij^ificant evidences  of the prosperity now abounding in  Phoenix and the Boundary is' the  presence with, us for the last week or  two of real estate agents from Vancouver. It may be taken for granted  that these gentlemen would notr stay  here if they were not selling lots, and  from their own statements they have  done well in the mining centre of the  Boundary. They seem to know, where  workingmen have bank accounts and  cart invest if they see fit. As both  Vancouver and New Westminster are  now growing at a rapid rate, it would  seem that investments, if judiciously  made,, would,.prove, remunerative in  the course of time, even though a  slumpjhould come.  house will do." And yet rents are not  very high here. What a chance for investment in inexpensive houses. The  man who takes it, has a gold mine already, for 50 small houses would undoubtedly find tenants on short notice.  AVhatit will be when a few hundred  more meii are at work, as they will be  before long in all probability, one can  imagine.  CM  A gentleman from Vancouver remarked this week that it is astonishing  what ignorance there is in Jhat place  regarding the Boundary district. Many  of the merchants there do riot seem to  know just where this section is located.  This undoubtedly conies from the  notion, formerly so ingrained in Vancouver and Victoria, that those sections  are practically the entire province.  Fortunately, the idea is being rapidly  dissipated, and it is high time. The  Vancouver merchants complain at not  receiving more ordersfrom this prosperous section, but take mighty poor  care of the orders that are sent to  them. When they awaken and attend  strictly to business on business lines,  arid learn more about the province,  they will receive more orders. That is  the story in a nutshell.  Few people realize the amount of  effort required to keep the Pioneer's  ore table up to date, but occasionally  an appreciation arrives. A few days  ago a subscriber, who lives where he  can almost hear Niagara's roar, wrote  us calling attention to a typographical  error in the table���showing7that he  followed the figures closely each week.  This week another subscriber, this time  in New Yoak, wrote asking why the  table had been omitted from the Pioneer for the last two issues, and saying  that he and others he knew of'missed  it from its accustomed place. Hereafter it will appear as usual,: and was  only omitted, and the current week's  output briefed, because of a press of  matter for our columns.    7  BOUND TO PLBAvgE.

Resolved, that things look differently to us when the laugh is on us.  Some people are good laughers at  other people's misfortunes, but they  can't laugh at their own. Now dear  brothers, when you can laugh at your  own misfortunes you are a philosopher.  You might as well laugh at them. It  won't do any good to cry. You will  laugh a year hence and wonder why  things worried you. Nothing is important enough to worry about Life  is too short. Just be happy���make a  business of it.

Bent   Record la the History of British  Co-  tanblti.  The McBride government will be  able to announce to the people of  British Columbia a surplus of $1,000,-  000, the greatest surplus of any which  the Conservatives have been able to  pile up on the deficits of previous governments. - .;  The fiscal year ended on June 30,  and the returns made to lion. R. G.  Tatlow, minister of finance and acting  premier since that date, show-that the  record-breaking mark of $i,oco,ooo  will be reached when the balance for  the 1906-7 is struck.  This splendid showing reflects unbounded credit upon the , administration of the finances of the province by  Hon. Mr. Tatlow. As is well known,  when he took hold of the finances the  treasury was not onjy empty but obligations contracted by previous governments had to be met in order to save  the credit of British Columbia. Not  only was the situation saved at that  time but the internal affairs of the  province were thenceforth so skilfully  handled that annual surpluses have  been resulting ever since.  A. M. Davidson, of Saskatoon, Sask.,  has purchased a- half '<interest- in 'the  Greenwood-Times-and-'-has- assumed  the management of that  paper.    Mr.  Davidson is practical in the business I spring it seemed as though I  and will be welcomed to the ranks of  Boundary journalism. J. W. Ellis, so  long identified with the Times, has removed to the .coast, to woo the fickle  goddess on the wave lapped shores of  Burrard Inlet.  Sometimes even newspaper men  have a narrow escape from being made  comfortable in this world's goods.  Mr. Ellis, who has lived in the Boundary for nearly ten years, off and on, at  one time made a mineral location in  Wellington camp, and religiously did or  had done the assessment, work, year after  year. Finally he grew tired and allowed the claim to. elapse. Then Jack  Farrel located it as ithe Jackpot fraction  and in a fewmbnths thereafter-sold it  to the Athelstan-JacKpot syndicate for  $15,000 Thus Mr. Ellis had a narrow  escape, and Farrell made a nice stake.

This property is now  being actively developed by the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co., of  Canada, Ltd., which recently acquired it.  Purring Wildcat dot,In Its Deadly Work In  the Han.  Down East the wails of scratcned  and bitten victims ofthe wild cat ard  filling the air. The pretty pussy, thati  purred so insinuatingly and so gently,  inserted its paw into the cream jug of  so many small investors' bank accounts, that wore such- cute ribbons1  round its neck with "Cobalt" inscribed  in letters of silver, is now lashing its  tail, and with ears thrown back, its  cerebellum arched in the air, is spitting, scratching and lacerating as only  a wild cat can. The lithographed  boom of Cobalt is "busted" and the  buyers of chromos are "broke." It is  the old sordid story of a public of  suckers anxious to get rich quickly and  a gang of unscrupulous bloodsuckers  ready to rend them.  If it were only those who could  afford to lose, little sympathy would be  felt for them. But those who are  victimised are usually the ones who  can least afford it.  People who are struggling for a  cheap and almost joyless existence  read of the sudden wealth of the lucky  ones. The specious promoter dazzles  their eyes with stories of easily acquired riches from the stores of mother  earth. The heart.weary struggler with  poverty hesitates, is convinced, or  thinks he is, parts with his or her,  generally her, slender capital and that  is the last of it. Sooner or later the  crash comes and the toy balloon of  great expectations is pricked. Then  only the weary grind of the struggle  for existence is left. If the tales of  disaster, trouble and sadness left in the  wake of a "busted" mining boom could  be collated, Victor Hugo's "Les  Miserables" could be repeated a dozen  times.���Vancouver Saturday Sunset.  Favorable Signs.  Ten years,ago there> was a mining  stock boom in British Columbia and  little attention was paid the fruit,  lumber or real estate. The stock boom  faded away, leaving many a sore heart  perched upon a pile of gilt-colored  certificates, but mining did not cease.  It has gone steadily on, the increase  alone in the production of copper in  this Province with the past decade  amounting to oyer. 800 per cent All  the signs now point to a veritable  boom in real mining and the wise ones  are already preparing, .for its advent  which must come in '08 or'09.���R.

JAMBS R.  BROWN,  Asst. Commissioner of Lauds and Works,  Fajrvikw, B.C.  To American   Subscribers.

Williamson, who has  spending the week in Phoenix, selling  Vancouver realty, was recently in Kamloops, where he learned something  about the leading copper property of  that section, the Iron Mask.  He says that Capt. Argyll, the manager, recently returned from a trip to  Scotland, with the news that the sum  of $360,000 was immediately available  for the company to proceed with the  exploiting of the property and to erect  a smelter.  The smelter, of 250 tons daily  capacity, will be constructed at Kamloops luke, at a point convenient to  reach from the Iron Mask mine, and  will be so built that it can be readily  enlarged.  At the Iron Mask, T. J. Ferguson,  the superintendent, a former Phoenician, has had but a small force of men  at work for some time, while the manager was in the old country. But it is  expected that this force will now be  increased, and the mine put in shape  to maintain a considerable output.  Mr. Williamson also states that the  colony of those who went to near  Kamloops from Phoenix a year or two  ago and settled on land there, are all  getting along nicely.  Deaib of Robert H. Anderson.  Robert    H.    Anderson,    a   widely  known mining man of the northwest,  died last week at the Sacred Heart  been  hospital, Spokane, of heart failure.  Mr. Anderson was born at Sherbrooke, Nova Scotia, in 1872, and  came west in early manhood, where he  took up mining. For some time he  worked at the Bunker Hill and  Sullivan in the Coeur d'Alenes, arid  later came to British Columbia, where  he became ' superintendent successively of the B. C. mine in Summit  camp, the LeRoi mine of Rossland  and the Sullivan mine of Kimberly.  It was he who, after the LeRoi mine  had been said to have been worked  out, took charge and discovered a new  and highly valuable ore deposit.  The body is to be shipped by the  Turnbull Undertaking company to  Nova Scotia, where Mr. Anderson's  parents reside, upon the arrival of a  brother, John.  Old Chronic Sores.

The story is  told   that  when President Roosevelt was a boy he had to  speak a piece at school.    He began:  "At midnight in his guarded tent  The Turk lay dreaming of the hour  When Greece, her knee in suppliance  bent,  Should tremble at his power."  He started all right, and got as far  as "Greece, her knee," and stopped.  He had forgotten the rest. He started  again, could get no further than  "Greece, her knee���Greece, her knee,"  when a young wag in the audience  hollered:  "Grease her knee again, Ted, and  I'll bet she'll go."  "Is a mark a German coin, pa?"  "I think it is."  When a German gets a job, then do  they say he is making his mark?"  "By the way, sir," asked the waiter,  "how would you like to have your  steak?"  "Very much, indeed," replied the  mild man, who had been patienrly  waiting for twenty minutes.  Ore Tonnage fur Southeast Kootenay.

Mr. Martin states  that the mine is looking first rate, the  No. 3 tunnel now being in over 450  feet from the portal. In fact, he thinks  the property never looked as well as it  does today.  Quite a lot of ore has been sacked  for a test shipment, which may be  treated at the Granby smelter, to which  a favorable rate has been made.  Messrs. Hower, Church and Forrest  have the contract for driving the tunnel,  and are making good progress. However, a gasoline air compressor has been  ordered for the Carney, which it is expected will be installed by the 1st of  August, when the driving of the tunnel  will proceed faster. There are quite a  number of shareholders in Carney in  the Boundary, and it would seem that  I hey had. gotten into a good thing,  something that is likely to pay a hand- ]  some profit in the course of time.
