L, Martin returned  Sunday from a ten days' trip to the  Coeur d'AIenes, where Mr." Martin is  interested in the development of some  very promising mining properties.  When seen by the Pioneer man, and  asked as to conditions in the great  mining district, Mr. Martin said:  "I am always willing to tell you all  your space will allow about the Coeur  d'AIenes, for the reason that it is one  of the most flourishing mining districts  in the United States, and I believe  that every means of placing reliable information before the public should be  encouraged. I would suggest that | all  persons interested in securing accurate  details regarding this remarkable dividend paying section, should read the  report of that eminent metallurgist,  Mr. George Huston, of New York.  In his report, after thoroughly discussing the deposits, veins or ledes of  silver, lead and copper, Mr. Huston  says: 'A fair surface showing in place  has never yet failed with depth.'  "This fact has probably had as  much to do with attracting mining men  and investors to the Coeur d'AIenes as  the incontrovertible proof of successful  mining���that is, the more than $40,-  000,000 in dividends paid in less than  six years. In all the history of the  country, it never looked as well as now.  The past winter was severe, and the  snowfall greater than for many years  For this reason, the outside world  heard little, but probably 50 per cent  more new properties were being developed than ever before.  . "Many of these were driving long  tunnels, and will, in a short time, tap  their extensive sqre bodies a,at great  depth. Some have already reported  good strikes, and there are many properties which will enter the dividend  list this year. I would especially refer  to the Stewart, the Monitor, the Oom  Paul and the National. The list which  will soon begin shipping, and thus become self-sustaining, is lengthy.  "How did you find your own properties looking," was asked of Mr.  Martin.  "The tunnel in the Brown Metal  group," he replied, "lying south and  west of the Snowstorm mine, is in 317  feet, and about 40 feet of the last  work has been driven through mineralized ledge formation. The Carney  copper group is looking much better  than I expected to find it. This is a  real grass roots proposition. The ore  chute is being stripped, and we find it  more than 30 feet wide and of a shipping quality. The long tunnel is now  in over 400 feet, and the face has  seams carrying galena. We have not  expected to reach the ore under 600  or 700 feet. The point of contact  with the ore chute will be governed by  the strike and dip. If we reach it in  600 feet, we will have a depth of 425  feet. If, however, it requires 700 feet  of driving, it will be on the . 500-foot  level.  "Mr. J. F. Rice, a mining engineer,  well known in Spokane and the northwest, who has examined the Coeur  d'AIenes thoroughly, has this to say  of the Carney group:  "''The Carney copper group has,  probably, the best surface showing of  copper ore in the district. The open  cuts on the upper croppings show a  face of ore from 12 to 15 feet in width,  that will probably average from five  to six per cent copper. The copper  occurs in a carbonate, and is associated  with a considerable per cent of iron;  the iron apparently being in excess of  the silica contents. This forms a most  desirable conbmation lor smelting, and  thus insures the minimum rate for  treatment. All the indications point  to the existence of a large and valuable  ore body, which, with the facilities  which it possesses for mining and  shipping, can be handled at as low a  cost as any ore in the Coeur d'AIenes.'  "The long tunnel," continued Mr.  Martin, "should reach the ore some  time in August. When it does, we will  have a mine. In addition to the mine,  the company owns two water rights,  one on Willow creek and the other on  the West fork, the rights being worth  $25,000. They are being developed  in connection with the mine, for the  purpose of running our air compressor  at a minimum of cost, when installed.  The property is within 250 feet of the  Northern Pacific railway, thus solving  the ofttimes perplexing problem of railway facilities.  "We have a right to be pleased with  the Carney, and I expect, in the near  future, to tell you things of still greater  interest.  "Yes, the Snowstorm made a phenomenal strike  on  the 509-foQt  level  Dominion Copper  Making  a  Good ohowing.  A report from Boston reads: After  the first of June-the Dominion Copper  Co. expects to produce at the rate of  15,000,000 lbs. of copper per annum,  as about that date General Manager  Thomas will place in commission the  new 700 ton furnace in addition to the  two old ones each of 350 tons per day  capacity.    The average  of the ore is  about i}��%.  For the eight months ended July  31, 1906, the company showed net  earnings of $140,000, while for the  current fiscal year ending July 31 next  the management has forecasted net results of approximately $300,000. It  would not be surprising, however, if  the net results fall somewhat short of  this figure on account of shutdowns  during the winter and'the recent coal  strike which tied up ^smelting operations during the month of April.  At the District Mines  and Smelters.  Boundary Milling Notes  New Wage Scales are all Satisfactory.  Proa Irawaddv to BtHdary Creek.  G. J. Swann, a relative of G.iG.  Hodge, of the B. C. Telephone Co;,  was a visitor in the Boundary this  week. Mr. Swann's home is at Rangoon, Burmah, where he is connected  with the Irawaddy Flotilla Co., an extensive transportation; enterprise, he  being now on his way to visit his old  home in England. He is well acquainted with that, part of the world,  including India, and says that the  apprehension regarding another uprising in India is unwarranted by the  facts. There is much more said about  it outside of India, than in that land,  and comparatively little foundation for  the troubles that are supposed to be in  store. ���   -' ' ''.���'  B.CC0PPER  Makes  First Visit to  Boundary.  Colgate   Hoyt   Pleased  With  Company's Properties.  Colgate Hoyt, president of the Brit-  tish Columbia Copper- Co., arrived in  Greenwood from NewYork last Monday, in his private car, accompanied  by B. B. Lawrence, vice-president and  engineer, and Mr. Russell, Mr. Hoyt's  secretary. It was Mr. Hoyt's first visit  to the Boundary district, having been  elected president of the company only  last winter.  Mr. Hoyt spent the week in company with f. E. McAllister, the manager, or Frederic Keffer, the resident  engineer, in visiting and examining the  several properties of the company, including the Mother Lode, the Lone  Star and Washington, the Emma and  Oro Denoro, as well as the company's  works. He also inspected the Granby  smelter, being whirled around Grand  Forks by A. B. W. Hodges, of the  Granby Co., in the latter's new buzz  wagon, Mr. Hoyt being an enthusiastic  automobilist himself.  Wednesday Mr. Hoyt and Mr. Lawrence visited the Granby mines in this  camp, and were escorted over the properties by O. B. Smith, Jr., ihe superintendent.  Mr. Hoyt, who is a man of large  affairs in New York, and who is on the  directorate of several railway companies, stated that he was greatly  pleased at what he saw in the Boundary, and especially with the condition  of his company's mines and smelting  works. He will probably start east  again next Monday.  In the neighborhood of 500 more  men can be given employment in the  various mines and three smelters of  the Boundary district, at the < best  wages paid in any part of Canada or  the west for similar work. . For the  last week men have been coming; in  steadily and the mines and smelters  are fast getting back to their normal  capacity, but, as well known, it is the  intention to increase the output' of  copper even beyond that of the season  before the last labor trouble in the coal  fields, that tied up two or three local  smelting plants. :./  At that time there were about 2^000  men employed in the mines and smelters of the Boundary, and, as each of  our three smelters is now prepared to  handle more ore than ever before in  their history, more men than ever will  be required to get out the ore and to  put it through the smelters.  #The wage scale at the Granby smelter, which had not been definitely  agreed on when the last issue of the  Pioneer was printed, was settled this  week by A. B. W. Hodges, the local  manager of the company, after he had  had a conference with J. P. Giaves, the  general manager. By a little give and  take on both sides, it is understood  that there was no difficulty in finally  getting together.  Tea Fursacet la Blast.  In the three district smelters there  are ten furnaces in blast out of the  fourteen at the combined works. Just  as fast as the men can be had, the  other four furnaces will be placed in  commission, which it is hoped will be  in the course of another two or three  weeks at most. .    .  : At the-Granby smelter six of the  battery of eight furnaces are now in  blast, and coke is coming over both  railways by the trainlpad, so that there  would seem to be no trouble on the  coke question. As soon as men  enough can be put on at the company's mines as well as the smelter, the  other two furnaces will be blown in,  giving a capacity of over 3,000 tons  daily, if all eight can be kept in blast  continuously. This week, on account  of the ore wreck on the Great Northern,  it was necessary for Manager Hodges  to bank some of his furnaces for a day  or two. As the C.P.R. has the other  two smelters to feed with ore also, it  was impossible for that company to  meet the sudden demand on it from  the Granby Co. to handle so much  more ore, The C.P.R. continues to  be short of ore cars, as for a long time  past.  The B. C. Copper Co. has two fur  naces in blast, with the intention of  placing the third in commission as soon  as the ore can be had. The Dominion  Copper Co. also has its two old furnaces doing business steadily, and  Manager Thomas hopes to put his  third and new furnace���the . largest in'  Canada���in operation today or tomorrow.  About 40b men are now bii the payroll of the Granby mines.:';  ': civ  More diamond drilling may be done  at the Skylark, where the small force  is still at work.';       ...������; -' ���������';,  '���.    ' -. /': ���  Last Monday the B. -C. Copper Co.  blew in its smelter once more after a  week's shut down for repairs;  The Granby's Curlew tunnel, being  driven "to" strike" the 'Gold Drop at  depth, is now in over 700 feet.  The C.P.R. has under order 100  more steel ore durrips for use in hauling Boundary ore. They will be of  the 50-ton class.  Four machine drills have been sent  to the Cariboo-McKinney, mine, which  is being operated by a Phoenix syndicate, and this week they are doing  actual mining and breaking down ore.  Cascade's power plant has, been fur  nishing the "juice" for Boundary's big  mines and smelters lately, while the  finishing touches are being put to the  company's Bonnington Falls extensive  hydro-electrical works.  H. V. Winchell, chief geologist for'  the Great Northern railway, spent a  day or two in camp recently, travelling  in his private car. He has had an extended experience in! the branch of  geology which relates mostly to mining.  This was his first visit to Phoenix and  the Boundary. -.-..,-..: -  F. H. Knight, manager of the Little  Bertha mine, near Grand Forks, has  completed arrangements in Omaha,  Neb., for raising $30,000 for prosecuting development work and for the  building of the aerial tramway and a  cyanide plant when required. The new  railway up the North Fork now affords  excellent shipping facilities.  The Jewel Syndicate, Ltd, is the  title of a new company just registered  at Victoria as an extra-provincial, corporation. Richard Roberts, manager  of the Jewel mine, Long Lake camp,  which is being worked, is named as the  attorney for the company in this province. . It is a Scottish concern, succeeding the old 'Jewel Gold Mines,  Ltd.  NO. 7 DIVIDEND  BYGRANBYCO.^  Pays $405,000 Again  on June 29.  Make  Total Profit Paid of  $2,563,630.  $400 Base Ball Prize.  "*"'��� All arrangements have been completed for the ball game to be played  tomorrow at Midway between the  Phoenix and Oroville teams for a prize  of $400. A special train could not be  secured at any reasonable rate over  either railway, but Manager Harry  James, of the Phoenix nine, states  that there will be rigs ready to take 50  people, aside from the team, leaving  here at 8.45 a.m. A great deal of interest is being taken in the outcome,  and there will doubtless be money in  plenty to wager on the result. After  ten innings the two nines tied at Greenwood on May 25th, and this game is  to decide which is the best team.  Last Tuesday the board of directors  of the Granby Consolidated, at the  usual monthly meeting, heid at the  company's New York offices, declared  the regular quarterly dividend of two  per cent and an extra dividend of one  per cent, on the outstanding shares of  the company, payable on the 29th of  June, out of the net earnings of the  company. As there are 135,000 shares  issued, of a par value of $ico each,  this is equivalentto a dividend of $3  per share, or a total of $405,000.  This will be the seventh dividend  thus far declared by the Granby Consolidated, it being the only copper producer operating in the Boundary district as yet to pay profits, though it is  fully expected that others will - pay  dividends this year.  With this dividend the Granby Consolidated will". have paid back to its  shareholders, all told, the comfortable  sum of $2,596,630; .The first dividend  was declared in December, 1903. In  January, 1906, they started coming  along in regular quarterly declarations,  which is being kept up.

Wreck on Great Northern.  Thursday morning, about 8 o'clock,  a Great Northern ore train was wrecked about five miles out of Phoenix, at  the first derail switch, no one being  hurt. The train of 17 ore cars, with  Engineer Murphy and Conductor  Uren, had run up on the switch, and  in backing down again one of the cars  broke loose from the train. The rest  of the train came down on it, and  made a wreck of seven cars loaded  with Granby ore, completely blocking  traffic in both directions. The heavy  "battleships," as the trainmen call  them, weighing S3 tons each when  loaded, were not easy to move, but a  track was built around the wreck by  evening, and a big wrecker was sent  up from Spokane to clear it away, which  is now in progress.

Results  for March, however, were probably the  most satisfactory for those of any like  period in the company's career.    Net  earnings were in excess  of $225,000,  while the cost of production   was approximately 7.64c. per lb. copper.  For  the nine months ended March 31, the  Granby has secured   net  earnings in  excess of $1,600,000.    Under normal  working   conditions   it   is   capable   of  supplying 25,000,000 lb. of copper per  annum, at  a  cost   of 8c.   per  pound.  The company has a well-filled treasury,  an   excellent   management,   an   extraordinary supply, and one of  the   best  smelting plants in the country."  Latest Prices in MetaU.

There is reason for believing that  the present high price in copper will  continue���and eastern authorities are  of the opinion that the price may advance during, the next six months'  period, says the Mining Reporter.  Firstly, the restlessness of labor in a majority of the large copper mining and  smelting countries of the United States,  and Mexico since the first of the  year has resulted in a decreased output for the first quarter of 1907 as  compared with the corresponding  period of last year. The April output  showed a decided falling oft as compared with the preceding month, and  May will show a still further reduction  in both the United States and Canada  ���in Arizona, because the average output of April, will not be maintained,  on account of the exhaustion of the  normal reserve supply, the renewal of  which has not been possible yet; and  in British Columbia, because of the  coal strikes which made it inoperative  for a couple of weeks at the larger mines  and smelters. Again, the scarcity of  labor in the lake region has seriously  interfered with the making of a maximum production and the  carrying  on  &>-��~h4j��  O-O-CS  O-**^* O.*  of extensive  development  operations  planned on.  Secondly, the available supply of the  metal is comparatively small���5% being estimated on hand at the first of  this month���and selling agents reported their deliveries far behind until a  few weeks ago.     ,  Thirdly, the foreign demand for the  metal has greatly increased since the  first of the year, and there is ho indication of a falling off of this demand for  American copper, inasmuch as the  supply from Europe and other countries shows little, if any, increase.  ' Fourthly, the electrical apparatus  manufacturing industries of this and  other countries, show an increased  business and withal a larger consumption of the red metal. For instance  one of the largest American electrical  companies reports the April shipments  of electrical machinery and apparatus  63% in excess of those for the corresponding period of last year.  Fifthly, the largest operators are in  unanimous accord, according to press  statements, as to the maintenance of  both the demand for and the present  price of the metal.

My Dear Tom:  You have obtained good men.  have placed them intelligently,  next important thing to do is to  them. And to keep good men  must treat them right. Some persons,  if told this, would think that to treat  the men right you must let them' do  as they please. But to raise children  without any restrictions is the sure way  to spoil them, and "men are but children of a larger growth."  I am a strong believer in discipline.  I shall have suggestions to make to  you from time to time, and I shall  expect you to see them carried Tout  without my having to make the same  suggestion twice. I wish you to train  the men under you to see your wishes  carried out in the same way.  A good teamster doesn't push on the  lines, nor does he Rive them a hard  pull. He holds them just so each  horse is exactly where he ought to be.  He seldom uses the whip. One word  and every horse steps forward into the  collar. To make a good foreman, you  must have the whip in your hand, i but  your men must feel that you wiil never  use it except for cause. Some foremen  think that they must fire a man  occasionally to keep the men in condition of apprehension as to what may  happen to them. If one of your men  is obstrepprous, have the tact to take  him aside and impress ��� him with \ the  necessity of his pulling in line as you  wish. If he doesn't comply, give him  his time.  Your men must be well fed. There  have been times in my life when I was  short of provisions, but seldom a time  when I was short of appetite. I know  that when a man works as he ought to  work in a mine, he wants something  good to eat, and plenty of it. We  have a boarding-house under contract  to furnish us the best of meals. This  will not be under your supervision;  but, if there is any complaint, or you  can make any suggestions for betterment of the service, you will please let  me know.  Next in importance to good food is  good air. No man can do justice to  ���himself in foul air. You will take particular pains to see that all places are  well ventilated. And you will protect  your men from the other extreme, so  no one will have to work in an unnecessarily strong draft.  I wish you to counsel with your  men. You may not need to learn  from them, though you will never have  a man on the force from whom you  may not learn something; but you pay  a man a delicate, high compliment  when you ask his advice, and you preclude the possibility of his getting the  idea that you think you know it all.  When a foreman creates the impression among his men that he thinks the  sum of his knowledge is concentrated  in the territory beneath his hat band,  his days of usefulness are at an end.  Again, and above all else, in counseling with those under you, you are  helping them���you are training them  to think for themselves; and the valuable employee is the one who puts  thought behind his muscle.  With your practical knowledge of  mining, you will find many an occasion  to make* valuable suggestions to those  under you, and these made in- the  right spirit always have a good influence. Thus, in making your rounds,  you may find a man making a drive in  hard ground. He has gouged in iS  inches or more, and is ready to break  to the gouge. Encourage him to cairy  the gouge in farther, if he puts in a  day at it. He might hesitate to do it  without your encouragement, through  fear that you might think he was not  accomplishing anything. But explain  to him that he will gain by it; that if  ground is tight the breaking holes will  have a better chance; that oftentimes  ground will slab off beyond the end of  the holes. When the man follows  your advice and sees good results, he  will feel grateful that he is working  under a boss who knows something.  I wish you to be a source of encouragement and inspiration to your  men. You will go into an end some  day and find a man in hard ground.  If you are as bright as I think you are,  you will not wait to have youi attention called to it. You will speak of it  first. You may make some such remark as: "That's tight ground, but  there's one satisfaction, I have a man  up against it who's good for it." Or,  perhaps, you may say: "Several of  the men are in hard ground this week."  After you have passed on, the man will  pound the drill with more vigor as he  says to himself: "The boss is all right.  He knows how it is. He's been there  himself."  Occasionally a man will be put at  work where for the first few days he  will make a very poor showing. I was  a visitor at a mine one time, and  among the men put on one afternoon  was one who worked hard, and at night  had only succeeded in getting in one  short upper. Things had gone hard  with him from start to finish. His  muscles were not hardened, the hammer didn't swing just right, some of  the drills didn't follow, he noticed the  boss was keeping close tab on him,  and that frustrated him. At night he  was sore and discouraged, and knowing  he had not done justice to himself he  expected to be fired; so he called for  his time. Had such a man been  working for" me I would have tided  him over   the period  of discourage*  ii  PE-RU-NA WAS SUCCESSFUL  MERE DOCTORS FAILED,"  Writes Mr. Cholette Affer Taking Pe-fa-rna..  MR. MENESIPPE CHOLETTE.  Mr. Menesippo.Cholette, Ste. Thorese do ntatrville, P, Q., "writes:  "I shall neyer be able to speak In terms high enough to express tbe  entire confidence I have In Peruna.  "There Is nothing butter to restore health,   X took eight bottles.  . *\AAl the painw I had In the head aud bowels, also the catarrh of th* nose  and ���tomach, as well us all othor gymptoms disappeared after I had token  the third bottle.  "Peruna was successful where two doctors had tailed.  "Were 1 the lirat to testify In favor of this remedy, it might be thought  that I exaggerate, but many testimonials before mine have pointed oat the  great virtue of this effective tonic.  "It would be unreasonable to undervalue a remedy which has snatched  from premature death poor human beings whe were beyond rescue by the  doctors.  f'This remedy.haa restored many a victim of incipient consumption and  other diseases.  "Peruna Is the best remedy for all catarrhal diseases."  WHEN the catarrh has  , temic,���thatia, when it has  become sys-  been  allowed -to spread through the entire  syBtem, It is a difficult disease to cure.  Physicians do not always understand  it and some of them do not care to treat  It. Hence the inability of a great many  patients to find a cure.  The correct thing to do for these cases  la to make use of some internal, sys-  lemln catarrh   remedy,���one that will  reach every internal organ of the body  and exercise a healing, strengthening  and soothing effect upon the mucous  membranes lining these various organs.  Such a remedy has been found in  Peruna,  As Mr, Cholette states,his testimonial  is not the first one written in behalf of  Peruna, the remedy which brings permanent relief in all cases of aystamlo  catarrh.  ment. I would have pointed out the  things that had operated to make him  feel blue, had told him that I had  watched him critically, had noticed  that he had an easy steady movement  at his work, and was satisfied that he  would make a good workman for me.  If a man works by jerks let him go,  but if he is a plodder, if he takes his  hammer and pounds away with regularity and persistence, no matter how  slow he may appear to be, no matter  how-hard'it rnay' seem, to get an idea  into his head and to-get him to do  some things as you are accustomed to  having them done, be patient. Once  you get such a man trained he goes  ahead with the regularity of a clock.  A word of appreciation at the right  time is worth a great deal. If a man  has done fine work for you let him  know that you know it. On the contrary, if a man isn't doing as well as  you think he should, don't scold or  find fault. A good plan is to say to  such as one: "You are doing very  fairly, but I think you can do better,"  and then point out to him how he can  improve his way of doing things.  You will have some men who will  deliver a round of oaths when anything  goes wrong. I have watched the  effect, and it always seemed to me that  the swearing didn't remedy the matter,  that something else had to be done,  and that the energy expended in unloading the oaths might be put to a  better purpose. Swearing is not a good  accomplishment for a foreman. He  should have perfect control of himself  in every situation.  I would say avoid making a chum  of any man under you. Some of the  men would be certain to think he was  a favorite, and would get all the soft  snaps. You should aim to treat all  your men alike, and avoid even the  appearance of favoritism.  You will think I am very strict, that  I am requiring a great deal, that a man  can't be expected to remember all'.  these things. All you have to do is to'  take for yourself a motto ascribed .to '  George Washington: "Never forget  that you are a gentleman." All I have  said is embodied in that. Have consideration for your men and they will  appreciate it. Only occasionally will  you find a man who has been raised to  expect a certain amount of domineering in a boss, and who thinks kind  treatment a sign of weakness. Let  him go. The good words that others  will speak for you will bring dozens  who will want to lake his place. |  Sincerely yours, I  Timothy Strong.     I  .  Sine lo Phoenix.

Intent  te Deceive Can Be Proven When the  Borer Gets Legal Help. i  The Slater Shoe Company recently  offered $100 reward for information  whtch would lead to the conviction of  any shoe dealer selling other shoes  under the name of "Slater Shoe," or  "Slater's Shoes," or "Shoes made by  Slater."  Many letters were received from  various parts of Canada from people  who had been deceived, and investigations have been conducted, but in most  instances the buyers who suffered from  the unscrupulous dealer did not secure  what the judges consider legal evidence.  No shoe buyer need be deceived if he  looks for the "Sign of the Slate"on the  store door and on the shoe. This is  the evidence of the true Slater Shoe.��� .

Last week the C.P.R. lost something like $20,000 by the destruction  of the Baker Creek trestle on the  Boundary branch, sparks from a locomotive setting fire to the structure.  Transferring followed for a couple of  days.  Wednesday the mail clerk on the  C, P. R. Nelson-Midway run was lost  somewhere enroute, with the consequence that no mail was received over  that line that day.

A   short -time   ago    David   Oxley  learned that.Chinese were cutting poles  on his Florence  claim, adjoining the  Jackpot fraction, in Wellington  camp.  A trip to the locality proved   the truth  of the rumor, and   15   almond eyed  chaps  were buSy  making  ducks and  drakes of the timber.    They had built  a cabin, and said they  were employed  by John Lin burg, the   Rossland  man  who is getting out a big bunch of poles  for shipment to the east.    They were  warned off the property instanter, and  thought well enough of the suggestion  to make themselves scarce,  Emma Donnan, the 24 year old girl  who was killed by being struck with a  stick of wood flung by her sister, Bella,  at Grand Forks last weeki was buried  on Sunday.

The contracts are  for the 100,000 gallon tank and for the  new mammoth flue dust chamber, the  latter alone requiring some 300 tons of  steel.  It is understood that a determined  effort is to be made for the revival of  the project to construct a trolley line  from Greenwood to Phoenix, and that  the city council of the former place  will be asked to give the scheme substantial aid. Some years ago preliminary surveys were made for such a  line, and it was estimated that it would  be nine or ten miles in length, and  that it would cost from $100,000 to  $125,000 to build and equip it.
