Eyerytfiing in Hardware,  BROOKLYN  DEAL  CONSUMMATED  ���  Big Phoenix Mines to  be Working in Full  Force Soon ��� Some  Particulars.    j&     J&  The consummation of the ; deal by  which the great Brooklyn group of  mines'in this camp was taken into the  new Montreal and Boston Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., Ltd.,  which has just been completed by the  payment of a substantial amount in  caiii, is the most important piece of  mining news sent out from the Boundary country in many months. In effect it is far reaching, as it means the  immediate operation of three or four  prominent groups of mines that have  been idle for years, chief of which is  the Brooklyn in this camp.  Business and mining men alike in  this place and. all over the Boundary  are jubilant at the" definite and positive settlement of tlie matter, and feel  that, coupled with" "the effects of the  construction of the V., V. &E. railway, now'in hand from Grand Forks  to Phoenix, the Boundary-is'just.entering upon the most prosperous time m  its history thus far, which promises,  with the,; ample financial' backing of  these great enterprises, to continue indefinitely.  Last Monday $25,000 in cash was  paid to the owners of the Athelstan  Jackpot group, one of the consolidated  groups, and '���previous to that a payment  of $120,000 to the owners oftlie  Brooklyn group, was reported to have  been made. George II Collins, an  old mining man in this .section, has  been made mining manager of the new  corporation. He will start unwater-  ing the Brooklyn mine, and will begin  the shipment of ore to the company's  smelter at the earliest possible dale.  Iu the meantime, the office staff at  the smelter at Boundary Falls is being  reorganized, J. Cuthbert Welch being  the new superintendent,there, with H".  C. Pembertori general manager of the  company.  Company Owns Four Groups.  The mines of ihe new corporation  are the Morrison group in Deadwood  camp, the Sunset-group in the'same  camp, three-quarters of the Emma in  Summit camp, the Athelstan-Jackpot  in Wellington camp, and the Brooklyn-  Stemwinder group in Phoenix camp,  the latter group being the most developed, having the most ore and having  shipping facilities in the way of C.P.R.  railway sidings already  constructed.  While officials of the different companies are; not communicative on the  subject, it is believed, from what can  be learned, that the Brooklyn group is  sold for the sum of $480,000, the  Athelstan-Jackpot for $100,000 and a  block of shares, the Emma at substantial cash figure, payments extending  over several months, and the Morrison  mostly for shares, while the Sunset was. addition to this the smelter will shortly "ore.

There is some little hitch  regarding the Emma mine negotiations,  bin''this will probably be settled in a  few days. ���" -",'v; '  ' Experienced mining men assert that  the combination of these several groups  which have been amply tested, will  give one of the strongest consolidations, from the metallurgical point of  view, that could have been worked out  in the Boundary, as die several mines  now owned by the company will sup-'  ply every constituent needed for successful smelting. :-AA .'"���"  Backlnf ot the New Company.

The   smelter this camp, consisting of the Brooklyn,  was successfully operated for a year or  two up to last December, since which  time the consummation of the present  consolidation has been taking place.  In smelting facilities the new company  Will soon be in the best of shape. .  The Morrison mine, in Deadwood  camp, has. already shipped some  3,000 tons of Ore, sent out, during  1903, but being a mile or two from  the railway, it was handicapped. A  spur will be built to this property at  an early date., Th<" 'nme is said to be.  capable of shipping i00 tons daily.  '.;''.. The Athelstan-Jackpot, located in  Wellington ca*mp, is also off the railway line, but this-defect can readily be  BROOKLYN   MINE���GRANBY   MINES   IN  DISTANCE.  was underwritten to float tlie company.  Munroe & Munioe, of Montreal and  New'York', arranged the combination,  having been heaviiy interested in the.  old Montreal and Boston. The underwriting syndicate was worked up in  New York by the; Knickerbocher  Trust Co., who after interesting such  men as Brent Good, of Carter pill fame,  and Mr. Leach, of "parson, Leach &  Co., had no trouble in getting the  necessary ��� amount subscribed to buy  the claims indicated arid turn them into the new company,, for. which the  trust company receives ^5,000,000 of  the $7,5000,000 capital stock of the  new company: The Sunset group and  the smelter at Boundary Falls had already been acquired by the new corporation. A balance of $1,000,000-in  shares is to remain in the treasury of  the. company, and a working fund of  $150,000 is available.  Condition of tbe Mines.  The Boundary Falls smelter is already equipped with two blast furnaces,  capacity 650 tons daily, a third is on  the gtound ready far installation, and a  a fourth is to be ordered at once.    In  remedied hy the C.P.R."This property  Stemwinder, Montezuma, Idaho, Standard and Rawhide. Thousands of  feet of development work on these  claims have been done, exposing hundred of thousands=cf;tons of Ore of a  marketable grade. From the 250-foot  level of the Brooklyn a drift runs under the city of Phoenix to the Idaho  that is 1,500 or 2,000 feet long, and it  is said to be all in ore.  Some ten or twelve thousands of  tons of ore from the Brooklyn and  Stemwinder are now on the dumps and  can be immediately shipped to the  smelter. Besides this, the mines are  already equipped with modem machinery that is almost new, having just  been installed when James Breen discontinued development work on the  properties now nearly three years ago.  The Brooklyn group, it is claimed, can  easily maintain an output of 500 tons  daily, and will doubtless be called upon to do so soon.  v Who .Benefits by the Sale.  Among those who benefit by the  sale.of these properties will be the  members of the Athelstan syndicate,  consisting of W. T. Hunter and G. H.  Coljins of Greenwood, G. Sr Slawson  of Spokane, Charles I), Hunter of  Phoenix, ���' and James H. Hunter of  Rossland, and others. In the Morrison sale the pay is largely taken in  shares. If the Emma sale goes  through, Mackenzie & Mann, of Toronto, the owners of the three-fourths  interest to be secured, will get the  cash.

It was worked in u desultory manner for years until a syndicate  of Boundary men took hold of it more  than a year ago, and they, are said to  have made handsome profits therefrom. At any rate, some of the best  values per ton in the Boundary low  grade belt were obtained, even though  it cost a dollar per ton haulage to place  the ore on the railway cars. It is a  quarrying proposition, is estimated to  have 100,000 tons of ore in sight, and  can maintain shipments at the rate of  150 tons daily.  The Emma mine is an excess iron  proposition, just the thing for the flux  needed to carry the other ores. The  Hall mines smelter, of Nelson, owns a  one-quarter interest in the Emma, and  the property is capable of shipping  3,00c or 4,000 tons of ore per month,  if needed. It has already, produced  over 45,000 tons of ore.  The Sunset group in Deadwood  camp, is also an iron proposition, on  the quarrying system, from which has  been shipped   nearly   25,000  tons of  a number of the Senator's friends  there; the Mackenzie & Mann interest of Toronto, and the James Breen  terest. The latter includes Mayor  G. W. Rumberger of Phoenix, E. J.  and W. T. Smith of Greenwood.  In a short time almost the entire  Boundary will greatly benefit from the  working of these various mines, as  hundreds of men will be required to  operate them and the smelter, as "soon  as the work can be gotten in shape.  While Manager Coliins and his foreman, Mike Callahan, were on hand  Thursday, owing to the fact that in-  | structions had not yet been received  by W. R. Williams, who has charge of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s mines, to  turn the properties over, it was not  thought best to do much till this word  had come. It is expected to arrive  every day.  In the meantime, arrangements were  made with the Phoenix Electric Lighting Co. to-tap the water main of that  company, and the pipe was laid, so  that steam can be gotten up in the  boilers quickly and the pumping started without delay. Mr. Collins says  that he will also pump out the Stem-  winder at once, and a little later work  on the Rawhide will be started.

As,  however, the Boundary Falls smelter  is now preparing to blow in again, after six months of idleness, the probability of Boundary's output being a  round million tons for 1904 is more  than good, especially as the V., V. &  E, branch of the   Great   Northern is  Half year total  .416,023  For the month of June the output  of the several mines of. the Boundary,  as nearly as could be ascertained, is  placed at 68,076 tons, being slightly  higher than for the previous month,  the figures from each   mine  being as  !

Mallet, representing R.G.  Dunn & Co.'s Vancouver office, was  calling on our merchants yesterday, in  the interests of that great commercial  agency.  At Wednesday's   Meeting of  the City Council.  Mayor Rumberger and Alderman  Porter, Marshall, Birnie and Delahay  were present at this week's meeting of  the city council. Two communications  were read hy the clerk from Provincial  Secretary Tatlow, one notifying the  council ol" the appointment of W. J.  Porter on the board of licensing and  police commissioners, and ihe other  stating chat the commission of W. R.  Williams as police magistrate would  not be revoked. They were ordered  placed on file.  The agreement of the city with tho  Y-Y- & Hand the Granby Co., was pre-,  seated by CA. DesBrisay, duly signed  by the railway company; he was asked to secure the signature of the Granby  Co. thereto. By-Law No. 46, to vacate  certain alleys, was given a six months'  hoist, and the city clerk was ordered  to pay interest, on the city loan of  $8,000, amounting to $317.84, to the  Bank of Montreal.  The council also authorized the purchase of a light hose cart for the No.  1 fire station, together with 500 feet  of hose.  Counsel G..H. Onley, for the syndi-  date financing the Midway & Vernon  1 railway, after spending several days in  the Boundary, went out again this week.  Those who claim to know assert that  the contract for the construction of this  railway will be let before long.  Ernest Mills, of Greenwood, will b  the standard bearer of the Socialist  party in Yale-Cariboo constitutency,  election for which is expected to be  held some time within a year or   two.  The convention was held at Greenwood Thursday, there being outside  delegates from Phoenix, Hedley, Eholt  and Cascade. The delegates from the  Phoenix Socialist club were John  Riordan, W. H. Bambury, D. L. Mc-'  Intominey, N. Lemieux, H. A. Munroe, R. B. Kerr and Mrs. R. -B. Kerr.  J. J. Caulfield, of Greenwood, was  chairman, and W..H. Bambury secretary. After the various committees  had reported, the convention was unanimous in deciding to nominate John  Riordan but that gentleman firmly declined the honor. Finally Mr. Mills  was given the nomination without a  dissenting vote.  The campaign committee consists  of the chairman and secretary of the  convention, together with John Riordan of Phoenix, Fred Heselwood, of  Greenwood, W. H. Harris, of Grand-  Forks, and one each fiom Hedley,  Eholt and Cascade.  Mr. Mills has been an employee of  the Montreal and Boston Copper Co.'s  smelter at Boundary Falls, and was the  nominee of the Socialist party in the  provincial campaign in Greenwood  riding last October, in which election  he wa�� beaten by.. J_ R, Rrown,, the  Liberal candidate, by but nine votes.  He is now secretary of Greenwood  Miners' Union No. 22, W. F. M., and  is well spoken of by those know him.  The nomination of Mr. Mills makes  three candidates now in the field for  this Dominion constituency, for which  no election date has yet been fixed.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, was  nominated by the Liberals, and Marin Burrell of Grand Forks, was  put up by the Conservatives some  months ago. It will therefore be a  three-cornered contest.  Meeting of Police and Licensing Board.  The police and licensing boards met  Wednesday night, with Mayor Rumberger and commissioners Porter and  Punch present Mr. Porter moved to  dismiss the chief of police, butreceived  no second. The hours of duty of the  officers were then arranged .as follows:  Chief Flood from 7 a. m. to 7 p, m.j  Officer Docksteader, from 7 p.m. to 7  a. m. The chief was also directed, on  motion by Mr. Punch, to run all "tin  horns" and "boosters" out of town.  At the meeting of the licensing  board, Joseph Graham was granted a  transfer of license from the Union  hotel to the Mint hotel, and a license  was granted to the Stemwinder Hotel.

One of the best things that ever oc-  ourred in the Boundary was the, consummation of the Montreal & Boston  merger this week, by which the famous  Brooklyn group here will be operated  on an extensive scale, after an idleness extending over nearly three years.  It means the employment ol two or  three hundred additional men, and an  added impetus to Boundary's low  grade mining operations, with all the  attendant benefits in a business way.

A strike is reported from the Good-  enough claim, which adjoins the Ymir  mine. A wide vein of quartz carry-  galena has been opened at different  points for 700 feet.'  Over 350 men are employed at the  Trail smelter. Two copper furnaces  are in blast and one lead stack. The  electrolytic lead refining is turning out  r 1 tons of refined lead daily, and the  aggregate ,cost of the manufacturing  branch of the smelter, as now contemplated^ is $100,000.

One can hardly wish the military such inhuman  treatment as they are dealing out to  men, women and children. If the  miners, as a whole, where as black as  they are painted, which we doubt, they  are surely amenable to civil law, and  should not be made thtJ victims of  brutal outrages in the name of "military necessity." Such things could  not happen in Canada.  Csnadc't Mineral Production.  Canada produced 16 millions worth  ofcoalin��.iQ03     c  i  "Canada produced in 1903   eighteen  millions in gold.  Practically all the valuable minerals  are found in Canada.  30,000 took part in the Cariboo gold  rush of forty years ago.  Canada's Yukon district yielded 12  millions in gold in 1903:   ���  Canada's mineral production of 1903  was valued at 63 millions.  Canada has produced in the la'-t  eighteen )ears 556 millions in minerals.  Canada ranks fourth among the  world's gold producing countries.  Canada's Yukon gold field is estimated to be 125,000 square mile* in  area.  Canada has, it is estimated, 100,000  square miles of coal-bearing lands.  Canada has produced joo millions  in gold since 1862. Of this nuarly one-  half has come from the Yukon.  The   publishers of the   Rossland  Evening World have at last discovered  that there is not room for  two dailies  in that town and have shown wisdom  by discontinuing.   ��� As a matter of fact,  there is scarcely room for one daily,  but it seems to require the sinking of a  certain number of thousands of dollars  by the average man, with the daily bee  in his bonnet, to discover this unwelcome fact.

Cured of Chronic Diarrhoea After Ten Years of  Suffering.  "I wish to say a few words in praise  of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy," says Mrs. Mattie  Bulge, of Martinsville, Va. "1 suffered  from chronic diarrhoea for ten years  and during that time tried various  medicines without obtaining any permanent relief. List summer one of  my children was taken with cholera  morbus, and I procured a bottle ol  this remedy. Only two doses were required to give her entire relief. . I then  decided to try the medicine myself, and  did not use all of one bottle before I  was well and I have never since been  troubled with that complaint. One  cannot say too much in favor of that  wonderful medicine." This remedy is  for sale by all druggists.
