They, were J. M. Holman, of Holman Bros., Camborne,  Cornwall, England; William F. Ben-  net, senior member of the firm of  Bennett Sons & Co., of the same  place, and R. Machin, of Victoria,  their British Columbia agent.  These gentlemen are touring the  mining sections of the province to  cultivate trade relations, and specifically to introduce the Holman rock  drill. Holman Bros., the makers of  this drill, are also manufacturers of  all kinds of mining machinery. They  are as well heavily interested in the  tin mines of Cornwall, one of which is  the Dol Coath, the largest tin mine in  the world. The trip being taken is a  hurried one. Mr. Machin, the agent  of the famous Bennett fuse, which is  favorably known in every camp in the  Kocitenays, being the pilot . of the  party.  This fuse has become extremely  popular, not only in the Boundary,  but in Rossland, the Slocan, the  Lardo, and even in Alaska. The  Bennetts virtually have a control of  tlie fuse business, and in eighteen  months it is'more thpn likely that they  will compel their opposition to ship  back the tar tape fuses which have  hitherto held the market undisputed.  They are also cultivating a trade in  the United States, notwithstanding the  prohibitory tariff of 45 per- cent. Mr.  Bennett expresses .great gratification  at this opportunity of meeting the  mining public, and Hates that it will  i!AJu5j"pnstaijt.fiadea��a,r:��^ maintain  the very higheststandard in the production of this improved mining supply. " , . ^,  * Rock Drill Redaces Miaiag Eipenses.  Mr. Holman is much pleased with  the reception he has been accorded  generally by mining men. He has  been permitted already, after a practi  cnl demonstration of his rock drills in  the mines, to leave one or more  machines in the different properties  visited.  The special feature which Mr. Holman modestly claims as a severely  practical drill man, not only as a  manufacturer, but as a user, is the use  of the chisel bit in the Holman drills.  He holds that the .working expenses  of a mine are considerably reduced,  and that his drill will do as good, jf  not superior work to any machine in  the maiket. One of the claims is its  minimum weight, enabling the operator to handle it with great facility.  The machine is made throughout of  the best steel, and the working parts  aie claimed to be the perfection of  mechanism. The guarantee of such  a firm for anything they supply is  quite ample when one considers that  to date theie aie thousands of the  drills in the Transvaal under the name  of the Banket drill. The term Banket  is applied to a form of reel", a haid  conglomerate, which puts any machine to the seveiest test,- o��ingto its  peculiar stiucture.  The machines will be immediately  put in for practical working tests in  the Knob Hill,. Biooklyn  and  Snow-  shoe in this camp, besides a number  of others in the Boundary.'    ,. , . '  The party left yesterday for Greenwood, where they will meet mining  men from other camps, and will undoubtedly place a number of machines  among practical mining men, who are  looking for the best of everything. ���  Selected the Local Board.  H. E. Gillis. travelling representative of the Canadian Birkbeck Investment and Savings Co., with headquarters at Toronto, has organized a branch  of this well know institution in Phoenix. The local board comprises the  following: C. O. Hunter, J. F. Hem-  en way) H. McQuaid, W. R. Lee, D.  Whiteside; and McArthur &* Monk,  the latter being the local agents. \V.

Kydd, manager 01 the Royal  Bank of Canada, at Nelson, sized up  the Knob Hill ore bodies.  , Patrick Burns, the cattle king of  British Columbia, and Blake Wilson,  his. right hand man, with Julius  Ehrlich, of the Greenwood office, were  in town Tuesday, considering improvements of their local branch shop.  Wednesday moining Deputy Sheriff  Frederick 11. M. Elkins, of Greenwood, was married to Miss Annie  Ethel Clark, by Rev. W". A. Robbins.  Many friends were present, and the  full choral service of the Church of  England was used.  Clive Pringle, solicitor for the  Greenwood Electric Co., and R. B.  Kerr, city solicitor for Phoenix, are  working on the agreement for a water  and light system, which will be submitted to the ratepayers at the earliest  .possible date for their approval.  Thursday and Friday evenings the  Waragraph held forth at Miners Union  hall to pleased audiences. The moving pictures were well shown, and covered a wide range of subjects, the late  Queen's funeral procession* and the  Boer war coming in for a large share  of attention.  C..H. Eschbaugh, of Rossland,  representing-rife-International ^Correspondence School of Mines, of -Scrari-'  ton, Pa., was in the city two days this  week. The school now has over  800,000 students all over the world,  under 71 flags, and in this camp has  some 25 scholars.  Joe Durham and Andy Campbell  secured the contract for ditching the  ground recently placed on the market  by the Dominion Copper Co., and  have had a lorce of men this week on  the job. A lateral ditch was also run  a'short distance south. Part of the  ditch will be boxed in.  R.'ll. Parkinson, C. E., P. L. S.,  has issued an excellent map of, the  country from Camp McKinney to  Princeton, showing the important  camps of the lower Similkameen. The  map is printed in colors, and will be  a useful addition to the map literature  of this section.  Richard Marsh, of Rossland,  through McArthur & Monk, is calling  tor tenders for the erection of a two  story building on Victoria avenue, the  bids to be in by next Monday. The  structure will be 30x60 in size and  two stories high, being intended to be  used as a lodging house.  Rollin C. Hyde, an old Spokanite,  but now hailing from the town of Davenport, Wash., arrived in town Tuesday, and was so well pleased with the  prospects that he invested in some  Dominion avenue realty. He drove  to Phoenix, coming in by way of Republic.  Monday the new train service and  schedule on the Phoenix branch of  the C. P., R., as well as on the main  line, went into effect. The train leaving Phoenix at 11:15 a. 111. now goes  through to Greenwood, and returning  arrives at Phoenix at 10:50 p.m., making connections both ways with main  line trains.  F. C. Bailey and wife of Spokane  arrived Tuesday. Mr. Bailey owns  the Excelsior, Diamond and Alpine  claims in Providence camp, about a  mile Irom Phoenix, on which he is resuming development. The properties  ���ire surveyed, and have a good showing. Mrs. Bailey enjoys the distinction of. being the first woman to locate  a.claim in the Boundary.    .  ' While nothing is given out officially  by cthe management' of the Granby  Consolidated Mining, Smelting and  Power Company, Limited, evidence is  not lacking tending to the conclusion  that this corporation is planning mining and smelcing on a scale hitherto  not anticipated by any except those  within the innermost councils of that  cortwration.,  The officials have all along held  that only on a very large scale could  their mines in the Boundary.be operated to advantage, and they have proceeded along those lines. The company, as is only too well known, is  shipping 600 tons of ore daily from its'  own mines to, its own smelter, and this  output will soon be doubled. To further assist in the extraction of values  the company is also putting in its own  converters at the smelter. When  these are in operation the metallic  product that will be shipped east will  be 98 per cent fine, instead of from  50 to 60 per cent, as at present, making a large saving in freight.  More than one smelter, and perhaps a refinery, is included in the  plans of the management, however,  and it is no secret that the officials  have visited the coast with a view to  locating another smelter. It is believed that the location of the new  smelter is substantially decided on,  near Vancouver, although nothing is  said about it yet. Vast quantities of  copper ore are known to exist at  numerous points along the' coast, and  from these the new^smelter will get its  supply. ���  But erecting a smelter involves  a  large sum of money, and at the coast,  p% in_tbe ,Bouodary^tlie���Gmnl*or.-c,o.m.r���.  pany'does not propose" being depend-,.  eiit on'the average mining concern for  the tonnage necessary to keep a smelter  tunning   continuously.      Accordingly, its officials have  in  view some  mining properties not a great distance  from Vancouver, which are now under  consideration!   Late last week William  Yolen Williams, the superintendent of  the  company's .properties    here and  elsewhere, left Phoenix, accompanied  by O. B. Smith, the company's assayer  and   engineer,  for  the  coast, for the  purpose of examining the  mines  in  question  to  report thereon.    On the  report of Mr.   Williams  depends  the  next move in   this  highly  interesting  game.    Jay  P. Graves,  the general  manager,  and   his   assistant,   A.   C.  Flumerfelt, are also at the coast.  If the report is favorable it is understood that development will be under- _  taken at once on a large scale, and it  is more than propable that some of the  local head employees will be promoted.  Eagles Have Organized.  Last Sunday the first lodge of the  Fraternal Order of Eagles in the Boundary was organized,at Miners' Union  hall, with 70 names on the membership roll. The following is the list of  officers elected and installed:  Worthy past president, Wm. Abbott;  worthy piesident, J. E. McAuliffe;  worthy vice-president, Chas. H. Jones;  worthy secretary, H. B.

LATE NEWS  NOTES  FROM     THE  SEVERAL  CAMPS.  tV^^'%%^^^%^%^%^V��VV<V<sV',>  Diamond drilling on the Idaho is  being started this week.  The Granby company expect to install a timber flaming machine shortly  ���the first in the ltoundaiy.  An improved quality ot ore is reported as being taken out of the glory  hole at the Mother Lode in Deadwood  camp.  Chas. H. Wolf, for three years manager of the Sullivan mine, in east  Kootenay, has' been appointed ore  buyer for the Granby smelter.  The Snowshoe has again joined the  list of shippers from I'lioenix camp.  A car per day has been sent out for  the last week to the B. C. Copper  Co.'s smelter at Greenwood.  Diamond drilling is still being carried on in the Old Ironsides mine,  and also in the Victoria. Deepening  of the Old Ironsides shaft, now down  400 feet, will probably begin before  long.  .At a.depth ol 300 teet the west  drift of the Stemwinder, Fairview  camp, is said to be in a fine body of  ore, the average of the last ten samples  being $794, a great improvement over  values in the upper levels.  The south drift at the 250 foot level  in the Brooklyn is progressing at the  rate of 100 feet per month, and is now  in the Idaho ground. When tlie  Idaho shaft reaches, the 150 foot level,  drifting towards the Brooklyn will  probably be started.  James Breen, manager of the Dominion Copper Co., is expected in  Phoenix today, and will shortly leave  for Toronto and New York, in connection with the smelter that he will  erec* in this section in the near future.

Let all those brokers who will advise clients to buy stocks they know  to be worthless pull down their signs  and get into other lines of business.
