"mm  Most Noted American Copper Men  Amazed at Granby Mines;  Came Prepared to Discount, But Now Say  ���The Half Has Not Been T^ld.  The Pioneer man was accorded in-  tei views with the Anietican directors  <>f tlie Granby Co., who visited tlie  company's properties this week, and  coning frum tlie source they do, will  be lound of more than ordinary interes'.  Views of a Capper Specialist.  Mr. Stanton said:  "There is no question as to the vol-  u ne of the ore thai is exposed in the  Granby mines, but to what,depth these  deposits extend we do not know. However, the depths should be commensu-  late with the length and width of the  ore bodies exposed. I had originally  received reports on the ore body and  also an analysis of the ore, and when 1  arlived here 1 found that all the reports which had been made were much  more tlun confirmed.  "I would especially like to emphasize the intelligence with which the  company's affairs have been directed,  aiid, the up-to-date methods which I:  find in vogue here. 1 have seen a  great many American camps, but I can  emphatically declare that the plant and  equipment of the Granby Co., both at  Grand Forks and here, together with  the system of mine accounting,-are all  that could be desired aiid cannot be  surpassed,..  "lam especially impressed with the  cheapness with which the 01 e can be  mined and smelted, and I can safely  assert that it is the largest ore body  that I have ever seen, and far surpasses in size analygous ore bjdies in any-  other part of the United States or the  continent, so far as I am aware. Your  mining here has to be adapted to certain methods, aiid Supt. Williams has  certainly adopted the true method.  You get more ore out here per man  than in Michigm, because the ore is  easier mined, but in Michigan, for instance, in the Atlantic hoist, the ore  has lo be raised 2,000 feet, while on  the other hand wages and fuel are  cheaper in Michigan."  Mr. Stanton, as far as he was personally concerned, thought the snu her  was very up to date, but deferred his  opinion to those of Messrs. Herreshoff  and Luther, the recognized authorities  in the United States. On account of  its enormous resources British Cohim-  iia was hardly yet touched as a mineral producer, but he hoped the Granby Co. was the lever to lift it to the  position to which it belongs. He paid  a high tribute to Mr. \V. Y. Williams,  the mine superintendent, and to Mr.  Hodges, the smelter superintendent.  He was free to confess that he came  prepared to discount some of the statements he had heard in regard to the  Granby as to the sizeol" the ore bodies,  but now he had not a criticism to make.  Secret of Qranby's Success.  George 'Martin Luther said that the  chief impression made upon him, and  he thought upon the rest of ihe gentlemen of the party, was the immense size  of the ore bodies to be handled. The  The Granby , Co. had an unlimited  supply of ore, practically, of an even  value per ton.' With a good market,  which is assured, plenty of capital and  an economical management, this was  the secret of the success ofthe Granby  Co., which was properly handling the  raw material and turning it into a  marketable commodity. Every indication here in the way of construction  and development showed plainly that  those in charge understood the problem, and the results in time could not  be otherwise than those hoped for.  He had been told how large the ore  bodies were in feet, but the impression  was different from what he actually  saw; large as he believed it to be, he  found it immensely larger. Practically  all the ore produced so far was in the  process of development ��� gett ing ready  to   do  work.      He was  wonderfully  pleased with the smelter plain and the  work it was doing.  Smelter Spoke far Itself.  Mr. Herreshoff did not think there  was any need (or hiiii to make any  comment on the Granby smelter, as il  spoke for itself. The'results now being achieved on low grade ores were  most remarkable. ��� Ordinarily' some  pet sons might be disposed /to hesitate  to handle or develop a proposition  with such low grade ore, but the conception ol this enterprise, in its magnitude, showed great1'depth of thought  and remarkable attention to details.  Had it not been for the . economical  methods in use it is a question whether  it could have been made a'commercial  success. In its '.smelting operations  the Granby Co. was favored by the  fortunate composition of. the ores.'The  bessemerizing was up to date ,in every  respect, and he believed the company  would become one of the leading factors in the copper industry on the  American continent.  Amazed at the Courage.  Wm. A. Paine, said that, like the  rest of the party, this was his first trip  to British Columbia or Through Can  ada, and the entire trip had been a  revelation to him'. : Boston people  were largely interested in the Lake  Superior and Butte copper regions, but  British Columbia was entirely unknown  to them before. He was amazed ai  the courage of persons who came into  the forest primeval and developed thi  Granby .mines. The broad and com  prehensive ideas of the managers 01  the Granby Co. were confiimed in the  results obtained at the Knob Hill and  Old Ironsides mines.  He was impressed with the executive  ability of Mr; Graves in. the choice of  his assistants, and with the evidence of  skill used and the effect accomplished  Everything showed that low costs had  been in view from the inception ofthe  enterprise. 'He was confident that  mining in British Columbia- was only  in its infancy, but the character of the  ore was such that only economica  management and low railway charges  could make such enterprises successful  Commenting on railway rates, Mr  Paine stated that the load of which he  is president in Michigan hauls ore an  average distance of 17 miles for 15  cents per ton. The road has 105 miles  of track, and hauls 7,000 tons per day.  DIRT TO FLY IN  THREE WEEKS  So Asserts a Spokane Man to  the Pioneer.  ON THE NEW BRANCH TO PHOENIX  Claims to Have Inside Information lo This  Effect, and Says It is Straight ��� Kennedy on the Ground.  From a gentleman who arrived from  Spokane this week comes the information that dirt will be flying on the  Great Northern extension lo Phoenix  inside of three weeks. The time at  which work would be commenced has  been in doubt for some little time, but  if this information is correct, active  construction will be started before the  end of June. According to the same  authority, Patrick Wrlrh, who has the  contract from the general Great Northern contractors, Sims Shields, & Co.,  is now making preparations to get the  work under way al ihe earliest possible  date.  James    II.    Kennedy,    the   chief  engineer of this branch, also ca��>e up  from Spokane to the Boundary this  week, and is said to have stated unhesitatingly that there would be no  more, delay about the matter.  As Phoenix is the most central point  for the control of the construction work  along the entire branch, it is more than  probable that this place will be made  the headquarters ofthe contractors foi  some months to come. That the work  will'be rushed to completion without  delay seems evident from the stated intention to have trains running before  the. Hist snow falls in the autumn.  This will take some tall hustling, but  it is thought by the contractors that it  can be done. It will make Phoenix  one of the liveliest places in the prov  ince for long mouths to come, as no  one ever knew a railway to be built  within the time specified in the contract.  James Moran, one of the old timers,  came in from his ranch on Kettle river  below Midway last Monday,and stated  that all the ranchers but two, from  Curlew to Midway, had been paid last  week for the light of way by the rail  way company, and that the engineers  had been removed to Grand Forks.  Dominion Day at Grand Forks.  As usual in past years the citizens  of Grand. Forks have decided to celebrate Dominion Day this year, and are'  now making extensive preparations for  the event. It. will also be the annual  race meeting in that city, and altogether some $2,000 in prizes will be  hung up., Special trains will be run  for the occasion on all. the three railways, and special fares will prevail.  ATHELSTAN IS  WORKING AGAIN  Wellington    Camp    Property  >       Soon to Ship.  HAS BEEN IDLE NEARLY TWO YEARS  Crew of Men Put at Work Last Monday By  Foreman Oxley���Ore Goes to Boundary  Falls Smeller.  Last Monday operations were resumed on the Athelstan mine, one of the  well known properties of Wellington  camp, about three miles from this city,  that has in the past shipped considerable ore to th'e smelters. David Oxley,  who was foreman when the property  ceased operations a couple of years  ago, has been ordered by the manage  ment to secure a force of men and start  work at once.  The Athelstan is owned by the Athelstan Gold and Copper- Mining Co.,  Ltd , and has a capital of $50,000, the  officers being: J. Anderson, president;  John Mack, vice-president; and \V. J.  Moirisnn, secretary treasurer. In the  year 1900 this mine shipped about 1,-  200 tons of ore, largely to the Granby  smelter, and in the fore part of 1901  about 550 tons were shipped to the  Boundary Falls smelter, acquired by the  Sunset mine owners. It is understood  that an arrangement has now been  made with the Sunset smelter to treat  the ore at a.low figure, it being specially desired for mixing with' other ores  as a flux.  Last winter the announcement was  made that the Athelstan Co. had disposed of its property to the owners of  the Morrison mine, which is located in  Deadwood camp, and which is preparing to ship to the Sunset smelter on a  considerable scale. This deal,however,  was not finally carried through, it appeals, and the property will now be  worked by the company itself, and the  ore sent to the smelter on Boundary  cieek.  The total development work done on  ihe Athelstan consists of about 450  lineal feet, which includes two shafts,  60 and 70 feet deep, respectively. The  ore is an arsenical iron, the chief value  being gold with a little silver. The  mine is directly on the Phoenix-Grand  Forks wagon road, and is distant from  the end of the Winnipeg mine spqr  about a mile, whence the ore is sent to  the smelters. The Athelstan will be the  first of the three prominent shipping  mines in Wellington camp to resume  operations.  J.l'. Keane, manager of the Caiiboo  mine, Camp McKinney, was in the  city Wednesday.  50 MILLIONS  This  Week's Visitors to Phoenix  Are Leaders*  Stand at the Head in Copper and Metallurgical Circles.  Tuesday a party arrived,in a special  train that was undoubtedly the most  important that ever visited Phoenix,  the Boundary or any British Columbia  mining camp.They were important not  only because they composed the recently elected American directors of  the Granby Co., having paid a cool  million in,cash for some of the.company's stock, but because of. their recognized eminent standing in metallurgical and commercial circles, especially in whatever has. to do with copper.       ':'���' "���:-'''  Not only have the gentlemen here  referred' to been prominent for years  in coppers in the famous Lake district,  Michigan, but they have been equally  successful in other walks in life, several of them being reckoned as millionaires several times over. In fact, a  conservative estimate would place the  capital they represent at not less than  fifty millions of dollars.  Personnel of the Parly.  The personnel .of the party was as  follows: John Stanton, of New York,  the noted copper statistician, a gentleman 73 years of age, and who is said  to be the father of the .copper industry  in the United States, having been successfully connected .-with it'for over, 50  years, and is-nowp'residerit of the" following companies operating in the lake  district in Michigan, viz., Wolveiine,  Mohawk, Atlantic, Baltic, Winona and  Michigan. George Martin Luther is  the secretary and general manager ,of  the Nicholls Chemical Co., of New  York, which refines all the copper produced in this provinee, is the largest  concern of its kind in the world, and  twice as large as its next nearest competitor. He is also manager of the  General. Chemical Co. Clement S.  Houghton, a retired capitalist of Boston, and J. B. Francis Herreshoff", of  New York, were also of the party.  The latter is technical expert for the  Nicholls Chemical Co-, as well as vice-  president. W. A. Paine, of Boston, is  president of the Copper Range Railway, and several mining properties in  Michigan. A. L. White, ol New York,  was also in the party.  The party nas accompanied by President S. H. C. Miner, General Manager J. P. Graves, Assistant to the  President A. C. Flumerfell, Assistant  Manager H. N. Galer, A. B. W.  Hodges, smelter superintendent, all  of the Granby Consolidated Co., on  the tiip of inspection, to the mines and  smelter. Supt. Williams showed them  through the mines. The party travelled direct, from New York City in a  private Pullman car, via the C. P. R.  to Phoenix, and returned Wednesday  by way of the Great Northern.  Travelled in Comfort.  The private palace coach Lucania  was chartered in New York city for the  party's use, coming by easy stages via  the C. P. R. and returning by the  Great Northern.  The Lticania's occupants certainly  travelled in comfort; the coach being  one of the most luxurious ever turned  out ofthe Pullman shops. With staterooms having bath and running water,  elecric lights and gas, dining, smoking,  culinary and ' observation compartments, there was little to be. desired.  That the cuisine was in conformity is  testified to by those present at the dinner given in the car the evening of  their arrival, when covers were laid for  fourteen. A. L. White, of New York,  was in charge of the party, there being  a porter, chef and waiter.  Opinions lhal Carry Weight.  Opinions of gentlemen such as the  above are entitled to weight because  they have had years of experience in  the copper mining industry, but more  so because several of them, on account  of handling the Granby copper, are in  the best possible position to know the  exact values extracted from Granby  ore. Being thus satisfied as to values,  the rest is only a matter of the visible  ore supply. That they are not only  fully satisfied, but amazed at the tremendous ore.reserves of the Granby  mines, is amply demonstrated by the  interviews accorded a representative of  the Pioneer, which will be found in  another column.  Boundary Mining Notes.  The B. C. mine broke ail its recent  records for shipping this week.  During the month of May the Granby mines shipped. 27,857 tons of ore.  From a shipment of 20 tons of Elkhorn ore sent to the Trail smelter the  returns were $2,470.  Wm. Fowler has a force of seven men  at work on the Defiance, one of the  claims in the high grade belt..  '{his week the Snow shoe mine makes  another new record in ore shipments,  with 1,890 tons to its credit.  The E. P. U. claim, near Greenwood, has sent 21 tons to the smelter,  which is expected to give returns of  about $100 per ton.  On account of not yet receiving the  extra-provincial supply of coke, on the  way, the Granby smelter has found  it difficult to keep even two furnaces  running this week.  Last Monday the last payment of  ���$i 2,500 was made on the $50,000  nond on ihe Providence mine in Providence camp. With the exception of  the initial payment of an equal amount,  the mine has been paid for out of the  proceeds of shipments. The last car  of ore sent out to the Trail smelter  gave returns of over |:oo per ton.  m  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

The newspapers and other business  concerns at Victoria are making so  much money that a new bank, to be  known as the Pacific Bank of Canada,  is being organized, with headquarters  at the capital.  If you have any correspondents in  Australia, you can now send letters, to  them at the same rate of postage as in  Canada', this being one of the things  that Sir Wm. Mulock has recently accomplished. '  The high grade mines around Greenwood are said to be looking better than  ever, and aie the cause of the people  thereabouts having a much better feeling generally. The Boundary bids fair  to be not only the greatest low" grade  section of the province, but also the  greatest high grade section.  Cold type���or the hot kind, either  ���will scarcely do justice to the political mess that has been stirred up at  Victoria in the last month or two.  Was there ever such a mix-up in the  history of any province in this fair Dominion? One crowd of rascals turned  out seems to be merely the forerunner  . of a fresh crowd taking hold of the  reins of government.  Richard McBride, the member from  Delta, was called upon last Monday  by the lieutenant-governor to form a  government, and was sworn in as first  minister. It is expected to be a conservative government, which means  straight party lines in the impending  election. This should certainly be a  vast improvement over the hodgepodge  combination of late in the saddle at  Victoria.  There is no small amount of similarity between James Dunsmuir and  Lord Penrhyn,of Wales,who has had an  extended strike on his hands���lasting  so far for some three years. Both object to their men joining unions ol any  kind. Both claimed to own the mines  they had been working, and that they  could do as they pleased with them.  In the wake of Lord Penrhyn's obstinacy has followed untold misery and  want, and the same may be the result  at the Vancouver Island coal mines.  In the Penrhyn case, conditions have  become so acute that the government  is almost ready to interfere. Mr  Dunsmuir might do well to take  warning.  1  ���  L  The April payroll of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co. aggregated $ 103,000.  In East Kootenay the Bull rive, iron  deposits are attracting considerable attention. ���.  Thomas J0nes,ihe Kansas zinc man,  says his company is still in the market  for B.C. ores.

At the June ist meeting of the White  Bear Company, at Toronto, $25,000  was to be voted to erect a concentration  plant on the-property in the Rossland  district.  The Canadian Industsials, Ltd.,  capital $1,000,000, to develop lumber,  iron and copper industries in British  Columbia, is being oigani/.ed by Hon.  C. H, Mackintosh, of Kossland.

ACTIVE WORK AT COAL MINES.  Development on Proper!; Owned by Granby  Shareholders.  A correspondent of the Fernie Free  Press at lilairmore writes the following:  The coal property lately acquired by  the International Coal and Coke Co.,  (the Granby Co.) and which has been  known locally as the Paulson property,  consists of some ten thousand acres of  coal land on which there are seven  known seams of coal varying from six  to eighteen feet in width. The situation  of the'property is such that the seams  can be worked to a great depth by a  system of tunnels,and as a consequence  coal can be produced very cheaply.  The point at which the property is being opened up and where the main  workings will be situated is about two  and one-half miles west of Blaiimore  and about one-half mile south of the  C. P. R. near McLaren's sawmill.  The veins, which are seven in number, have a dip to the west of about 45  degrees and a strike north and south  through the whole length of the prop*  erty. The character ofthe coal is very  similar to the Fernie and is comparitive-  ly clean, making a very superior quality  of coke and being a first-class coal.  Active woik is now being prosecuted  upon this pioperty and no expense will  be spared to develop them as quickly  as possible. Already ground is being  laid out for coke ovens and a survey  made for a railway spur to these mines.  James J. Hill is given .the credit for  a multitude ot sins���some of omission  and others of commission." The latest  is that he is responsible for the piesent  '��� shortage of roke  for  Kootenay and  Boundary smelters.    This, at least, is  the theory of  the  Rossland   Miner,  based on the auihoiity of a "Boundary  smelter manager."   This same theory  has been advanced before, but.has not  found very many that gave it credence.  Nevertheless, it may be  true, as Mr,  Hill has earned the reputation of being a pretty long headed  man.   . The  Miner's contention for the opening of  the idle coal buds in  East  Kootenay  is all right, however, and  is the true  solution of the vexed problem.    1  Young, But Enterprising.  A young enterprising editor in a  small town across the border piinted  an item ttiat he had been kissed by the  prettiest girl in town and would divulge  her name to his readers in about a  month. In two weeks' time the ciicu-  lalion of his paper doubled, but when  the time expired and the issue contained the announcement that the prettiest  girl was his wife, neither editor, wife  nor paper were in town two hours.

'��� One of the best managed corporations employing English capital foi; the  exploration of the mining districts ol  Uiitish Columbia has been the Loudon  and British Columbia Goidfields, Lid.,  of which the late J. .Roderick Robert-  ���sun was the geneial manager. With  it's three subsidiaiy silver-lead properties ��� some of ihe best in the Slocan  district���its Ymir gold mine and the  1 tower of the Kettle river at Cascade,  it had some of the very best revenue  produi'eis in ibis part of the province.  'Ihe following from the H C. Review  if London, however, shows that it is-  ncediul to remgnnize the parent company, and that the Cascade power is  'ooked iiDon as one of the chief factors  to place the corporation in a beltei  'financial pbsiiii.n at an early date, the  Inter; of com se, because it is supplying  mwer and light to the mines, smeltei s  and cities t.f the Boundaiy:  The report of the London & British  Columbia' (loidfields, Ltd., to 31st  Denmber last, states that the ��� ve.r'j  serious fall in the price ol lead and silver during the period under review has  'iad a disastrous effect on the company's large share holdings in the  Whitewater, Ruth and Enterprise com  panics, aiid , the assessment on the  "���hares of the Ymir company tlnough  its reconstruction involving a heav)  liability to presetve the interest. The  effect of this, and the delay in  completing the Kettle River Power  company's works, makes it now nee  essaiy to provide additional capital to  satisfy immediate liabilities and to enable the directors to preserve the com-,  pain's valuable assets.  The Ymir shares and the Kettle river debenture stock and shares have  great prospective value, and the preservation of these assetsalone would make  il particularly desirable that some  financial arrangement for this purpose  should immediately be carried out. In  addition to these assets, however, the  company's interests in the silver-lead  properties belonging 1.0 the Whitewater,  Ruth and Enterprise companies should  be favourably affected by the recent  and rapid appreciation in the price of  silver, and also by the new legislation  which it is hoped will be enacted by  the British Columbia government for  an improvement in the conditions affecting the markets for the sale of lead.  In order to facilitate the dealing with  the company's liabilities, the chairman,  who was in New York at the latter end  of last year on personal business, visited  Montreal and spent several days in  conference with Mr. Fowler, with a  view, amongst other things, of disposing of some of the Kettle river debentures, but, owing to the condition ol  markets in Canada and to the Ctow's  Nest coal strike and other causes, there  has been no opportunity' up to the  present of doing this without undue  sacrifice,  Now that the Kettle river company  is actually supplying power to the  towns, mines and smelters in the district, and is earning a revenue, the  value of its debentures and shares is  being rapidly enhanced. It is necessary, however, to at once provide funds  for satisfying the company's immediate  liabilities, to enable the directors to  preserve the large number of shares  which represent its principal assets,  and after much careful consideration it  has been decided to recommend that  thecompany.be reconstructed with a  liability of 4s. per share, the payment  ol which will be spread over as long a  period as possible. The directors,  having subscribed largely to the last  issue of shates, are themselves veiy  huge shareholders, and as such regret  the necessity for the scheme now proposed, but they ate piepaied to provide their propoi tion of the assessment.  Slater Shoe Advertisine.  Shoe Cost  Short talks by the Slater Shoe ad man, No. 1.  It costs IcSk to advertise and sell the "Slater Shoe'' than  it costs to sell ordinary shoes without advertising.  If a thousand people know a shoe is good more people will  want that shoe than if only ten people know it  If the "whole city" knows it more people will want it than  if only the people passing the store where it is sold, know it  merely by hearsay*  The "Slater Shoe" makers, knowing the "Slater Shoe"  will back up the expense of advertising it, give it wide publicity  ���they tell the "whole city" about it  It;,follows then as the "Slater Shoe" is better known  through advertising than unadvertised shoes, that more "Slater  Shoes" of equal grades are sold, which is a fact.  So the fixed charges of manufacturing, wholesaling and  retailing are divided among a greater number of pairs of shoes  than is the case in unknown shoes of smaller sales.  For instance:���Take a salesman's salary at $2.00 per day:���  if his sales are only ten pairs per day the cost of retailing alone  is 20 cents per pair.  But if advertising will enable him to sell fifty pairs per day  the cost is only four cents per pair and thus such fixed expenses  as rent, light, taxes, salaries, interest, etc., are reduced and  divided. -  So the wearer as well as the maker is benefited by the  liberal and judicious advertising of a good article like the "Slater  Shoe"���and it would be rank folly to risk a large amount of  money-to advertise a shoe which the wearers would not buy  a second time*  .. ���. t ''.''. ���"    >-  The Slater Shoe.
