R."-P��.��ent Time Title Clui-ies  June 10.  Whether it is the presence o( so  many V., V. &��� E. engineers in and  around Phoenix, indicating that we  will soon have another railway, or for  some other good and sufficient reason,  the C. P. R. has definitely decided to  give an improved service in a' passenger way on the Phoenix branch. Jay  I'. Giaves, manager of the Granby  Co., took the matter up recently with  Manage! Marpole, and he in turn is  trying to arrange it with Supt. Downie,  of this division. The new arrangement will piohably go into effect at  the same time that the Imperial Limited train is started on the main line,  which will be June 16th.  This is the infoi .nation conveyed to  the Pioneer by the district passenger  agent, Mr. Carter, of Nelson, who visited Phoenix this week. ' He said it  was the expectation to arrange for a  double daily passenger service or. the  Phoenix branch. One train would  run to connect with the main line  trains, east and west, at Eholt, while  the other would run through to Greenwood and return each day. The officials of the railway think that there is  traffic enough between the two places  to make it worth while, and are now  arranging the schedule to this end.  In addition to this, the seivice will  be improved in other nays. At present the passenger coach is carried on  the ore trains, and on this account is  not at all satisfactory, as it requires  more time to make the trip, and the  ore train from the smelter is sometimes late in arriving at Eholt. The  ,fiew plan is' to run a regular mixed  passenger and freight service, by which  much better time can be made, and  Mftraphrt%WSBftrtt-iH 1)6 ���Tiad* iif'b'otir  passenger and freight service.  MACHINERY FOR TAB LAKE OROUP.  Arrived  at Phoenix   Saturday���Now Being  Installed.  - The new machinery plant recently  ordered of the Jenckcs Machine Co.  by Manager G. W. ' Raithel for the  I^ake group, arrived j'at the i'hoenix  station last Saturday, has since been  hauled to the pioperty, and is now  being installed. It consists of a 60-  horse power horizontal return tubular  boiler, a 6^x8 hoisting engine, a  machine' drill, a Nt>. 5 Cameron  sinking pump, ore bucket and car,  wire rope, etc. <  The Lake group*; comprises the  Lake, Yellowstone, Don Pedro, Idola,  and the Yellowstone, and Crescent  fractions, being located near the Last  Chance group in Skylark camp, about  two and a half miles' from Phoenix.  It is being operated bv .the Chicago  and British Columbia Mining Co.,  under Foreman McCullough, and so  far a double compartment shall has  been sunk on the l~*ike claim for a  distance of about 70 feet. Ore was  reached at a depth of 50 feet, and it  was decided to equip the property  with a small power plant, for its moie  expeditious exploitation. A shaft-  house is. being put up,, and woik will  be continued. *":  it  Party of 22 Visit the Mines of  Phoni*. ,  MADE AN EXHAUSTIVE INSPECTION  Travel in Their own Special car, aid are Taking lo Leading Mining Camps la Thla  Provlace.

Among   the   various   contracts in  .sight local builders have been figuring  on the new sti ucture for the  Phoenix  General   Hospital   this   week.    The  plans were  drawn   by   F. M. Ratten  bury, of Victoria,   who  was architect  for the capital buildings, and the local  physicians   agree   that   the   hospital  plans are most satisfactory.    The hospital  will,  when   finally   completed,  have two large wings and a central  building.    At present is is  the  intention to put up but one  of the   wings,  120x34 feet in size, and that  is   what  is  being  figured  on   now.      \V.   R.

In   this  connection  the  following  is  taken from  the last issue of the Cascade  Recoid:  "1'is with the gieatest  pleasure we  learn the long delay of completing the  Watei, Power & Light  Co.'s woiks is  at an end.    Mr. S. S. Fowler, of the  company  owning   the   water  power,  who was in town Saturday last, staled  he   anticipated    no    further    delay.  Financial conditions in England  have  not been such the past year as to  encourage foreign  expenditures;   ample  funds are now however  available, and  no further delay   in   completing the  works is looked for.  Orders for all the necessary machinery have been placed with the  Westii'ghouse Electric & Manufactui -  ing Co., of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania,  and lendeis lor furnishing poles to e\-  tend the wires from Cascade to the  mining camps in the neighborhood,  are asked for.

Porter, professor of mining and metallurgy in  Met Jill Univcisity, Montreal, visited  I'hoenix to make anangements for the  visit here of the summer school of  mining this week. On Tuesday the  special car of the class ai rived in'town  and was switched to the Old Ironsides  spur, back of the Granby apartment  house, for a couple of days.  The party consists of the following:  Dr. J.B. Porter, who is in charge;  Dr. F. D. Adams, professor of geology  and a distinguished savant; Prof. Landry, chief of the mechanical department; F. W. Draper, assistant professor  of metallurgy; graduates in order of  seniority���M. W. Evans, O. E. Leroy,  L. O. Howard and A. R. Archer; also  the following students���Messrs. Corliss, Campbell, Coulson, McBride,  McLaren, Porcheron, Despensiei,  Johnson, Robertson, Brainerd, 'Car-  lyle, Lucas, Langley, Pembei ton' and  Hall. They travel in a specially fitted  up tourist car, which was selected in  preference to the plush finished first  class coaches, and have two cooks and  a porter to look after their needs.  Objects of Ihe Trip.  Each year a special excursion is  taken by the mining department of  McGill to some section, for the purpose of examining ore bodies in working mines and securing practical information in regard to mining and  smelling���information that cannot be  obtained in the class room. On these  trips they are together socially as well  as in the moie serious part of the excursions, and so have a ^thoroughly  enjoyable time���while on a tour of, the  mining districts...���.';,_*_���._.,,���,, S;'-^^  These tours are a comparatively  new feature in the course. One year  they spent the term in Cape Breton,  anothei in Pennsylvania, and last year  a small paity went to New Yoik state.  This year the longest and most comprehensive e\cursion thus far given is  now being taken to British Columbia.  Where They Have Been.  Leaving Montreal some three weeks  ago, the party came straight west, and  made no stops of importance  till   the  coal   fields   on   the   main   line'were  leached.    Canmore,   Anthiacite   and  the famous Banff weie each  taken  in  in turn, and then diiect to the coast.  Nanaimo,   Victoria   and    Vancouver  weie visited, and the mining districts  of the Kootenays and Yale we're  next  on the list.    A stop was made at Sandon, and the Payne and Slocan  Star  mines visited.    After a brief look   at  the Hall Mines smeltei at Nelson, the  paity   proceeded   to   .Rossland,  and  spent  a  week.    Here  they made an  exhaustive examination of the  LeRoi  and War Eagle mines     In   this  connection there  is  an   interesting  inci  dent.    Dr. Porter was informed by  a  friend before leaving the east that   the  paity would   probably be  banquetted  by the War Eagle people in Rossland,  but   would   not   be   allowed   to  go  thiough   the  propeity.    It   happened  that they were shown  every  couitesy  in examining the mine, and  weie  not  banquetted.  How the Work Is Done.  This summer school is designed to  give instruction in the relations of  practical and theoretical mining, and  is modelled after those to be found in  mmy of the American colleges. So  popular has it become that McGill  now has more'students in the mining  course than any university on the  American continent, save one. There  are over.1,400 students in McGill in  the various courses, and of these there  are nearly 100 in the mining department.  In order that the adjutages of  these trips may be utilized ao the utmost,   each   man   receives a printed  outline of the points to be observed  in each class of mine and smelter visited. He must take full notes, measurements etc., as he goes along, which  aie examined daily. As the train proceeds informal lectures are delivered  upon the geological characteristics of  the country through which they are  travel ling, and the special features of  the mines to be visited are pointed  out.  Inspecting Mines of Phoenix.  The party, with the professors, made  a careful examination of the Old Ironsides, Victoria and Knob Hill mines  in this camp, accompanied by the  superintendent, William Yolen Wii-  lipms, and- Assistant' Treasurer,' J. F.  Hemenway. Every possible courtesy  was shown the McGill boys by the  local officials, and their' investigations  facilitated in every way. Numerous  photographs of the mines and works  were taken for future use in lectures,  etc, and as Dr. Porter exchanges  photographs with the Royal School of  ��� HE  . .-,./.  Also Includes the Lulu and the  Red Rock.  ENGLISH CAPITALISTS TAK1HG HOLD  Well Kmwb Properties la Phoenix Camp Will  la all Probability be Ritaalag Again  Sooa.

The numbers of the party were  greatly impressed with what they saw  of the mines of Phoenix, and copious  notes were taken as well as numerous  samples,  Leave Men in Each Large Camp.  Dr.' I'orter informed the Pioneer  that, in order to get a better understanding of the workings of the more  important mines, members of the  party would be left to work in many of  the camps that were visited. In fact,  he did not intend to take any of them  back home at this time. They would  all,'go as far as Nelson, and would  then go to the mines where they had  been allowed to go co work, and spend  the rest of the summer in mucking or  drilling or whatever they were put at,  in order that they may gain some  practical experience. Two will be  left in Phoenix, Messrs. Depensier  and Campbell and others  elsewhere.  From Phoenix the party went to  Greenwood, there they were entertained at lunch, and then took in the  Mother Lode and Sunset mines in  Deadwood camp, and also inspected  the B. C. Copper Co.'s smeltei. Then  they proceeded to Nelson and to East  Kootenay. i Here steps were to be  made to see the St. Eugene and North  Star mines, as well as the coal mines  at Fernie.   , '  It is announced from Sherbrooke,  Quebec, that a consolidation of the  War Eagle, Red, Rock and Lulu  claims.in Phoenix camp has been '  made and the controlling interest sold  to a London, England, company. The  new undertaking is to be , known as  the Sherbrooke Consolidated, capitalized at ;��i 50,000 in ��1 shares. Active operations will shortly be commenced on the.properties.  The War Eagle was staked in August, 1.891, and-has an immense, outcrop of gold;copper ore.." About two  years since it was acquired by the  War Eagle Copper-Gold Mining Company, the majority of the stockholders  being prominent Eastern Townships  business men, the mine being equipped with a 5-drill compressor plant.  Development consists of a shaft sunk  to a depth of 100 feet, with 660 feet  of drifting and crosscutting, the other  claims being only partially-prospected.

Endorsed  Improvements By-Law.  Last Monday the vote of the ratepayers was taken on the by-law to  raise $15,000 by issuing debentures,  for the purpose of improving Dominion avenue, Knob Hill avenue, Phoenix street and a street to be laid out  through the Dominion Copper Co.'s  ground from Phoenix street to School  street. The polls were open all day-  City Clerk McMillan being the re.  turning officer. Every vote cast was  in favor of issuing the bonds, and the  city officials will place them to the  best possible advantage. The debentures will run 20 years, and carry six  per cent interest.  Phoznix Branch Ore Shipments*  The following table gives the  ore  shipments  of Phoenix  Branch |  mines for 1900, for the past week, for 1901 and the total to date:  Mayor Rumberger Has Donated a Cemetery  ,  Site to tbe City.  The full aldermanic board and the  mayor were present at Wednesday  evening's meeting of the city council.  The first business was the reading of  a communication from Sister Superior  Teresa, of the Rossland hospital, to  the effect that she would like to arrange to' take charge of the new-  Phoenix general hospital when built.  'Phe council took no action in the  matter. >       , '  Early closing By-Law No. 22 was  read the first time.

It provides for  the issuance of $15,000 in debentures  far street grading, etc.  Mayor Rumberger offered to donate a cemetery site to the city, and  the offer was accepted. It is located  near the old saw mill site below the  city.  James Breen, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., was given permission to ditch the ground on the  new addition from Phoenix-to Church  street.  Alderman Punch gave notice of his  intention to introduce a by-law to rearrange the lots in blocks 1 and 6 in  Rumberger's addition, abutting on  Standard avenue, and to alter the  width of Standard avenue.  In accordance with a motion made,  the mayor appointed a committee,  consisting of Aldermen Punch,' Mclnnis and Roy, to consult the owners  of property adjoining the city to ascertain their wishes in regard to coming into the municipality.  Alderman Punch gave notice of his  intention to introduce a Water and  Light Franchise By-Law.  The clerk was instructed to send  copies of Street Improvements By-Law  No. 16, to Messrs. F. J.

It is simply amusing to read the  arguments put torth by a portion of  the eastern press to show that Eastern  Canadians have lost money "mining"  in this province. It is just as sensible  for a man who has lost his all in the  bucket shops of Chicago on the grain  exchange, to say he was ruined by  farming in Manitoba.���Sandon Mining Review.

LAWRENCE, Proprietor   During House Cleaningtime  we give SPECIAL RATES to Families and Hotels on Blankets, Curtains,  There seems to be a lemarkable  unanimity of opinion that one of the  chief factors among the causes which  are responsible for the temporary depression which is felt in local mining  circles is the failure of certain influential parties entrusted with the  management of large    properties   to  Ross-  CONIONl  BEL)  '.V  r i  ���I. 1,     I '  '������Us-  &  *>�� /..  .'

O'Hara, an engineer connected with the topogtaphical surveys  branch of the department of the interior, arrived in Greenwood last Friday  night, and will come down to Midway  in a few days and commence the work  of surveying the international boun.  dary, as agreed to by the international  boundary commission.  The Canadian party operating in  this district will assemble at Greenwood, where its strength will be -made  up to 12 or 14. Mr. O'Hara will be  in complete charge, and his party will  operate in conjunction with an American part/under the direction of the  United States government engineeis,  and acting on lines laid down by thc-  international commission. It is proposed to take in the section of the line  from Midway to Similkameen river,  and it is estimated that with normal  weather conditions this part of the  work can be completed in the present  season, which extends to the end of  October. At the same time another  outfit, comprising parties of United  States and Canadian engineers, the  latter under the direction of Mr. J. J.  McArthur, will operate from the coast  east. The task undertaken by the international commission, that of re-locating the line between the two countries, k one of very considerable mag-  'nuude, ana will'probably require'sev-  eral years for its consummation.  The two sets of parties will act in  conjunction with each other. At Midway Mr. O'Hara will confer with the  chief of the United States party, and  will arrive at an allotment of the work,  the principle being to have the respective engineers check each other's  work and take sections of the country  in rotation. The detail to be followed  will be that of taking a system of tri-  angulations on this tide of the line by  the Canadian party and on the other  side by the United States party, together with photographic surveys, the  latter being a rapid means of covering  the ground with absolute accuracy and  without the ordinary course of surveying work.  It is not generally understood that  the work carried on by the survey  parties of the respective countries is  wholly of a preliminary nature. The  engineers aie on the ground for the  purpose of determining the exact location of the geugtaphical line and repotting the information thus obtained  to the international commission, which  will then confer and determine where  the line will be placed. When this  decision is nirived at the line will be  marked by a series of stone monuments distant from each other about  a mile. A straight line will be run  connecting the mounds,'atid the line  will be marked by a broad blaze, ten  or twelve feet in width, so that no  future doubt caivarise as to the' status  of land within tbe area close to the  boundary.-���Midway Advance.
