This week, for the first time since  he returned from an extended trip to  Eastern Canada, Percy F. Godeiiiath  was in Phoenix. Mr. Godeiiiath has  lived in the Boundary for-some' years,  and is probably one of the best posted J  men on mining matters in the JJoun-  daiy as well as other sections of Kootenay.and Yale.  '. While east Mr. Godeiiiath was iii  touch with many of the. prominent men  who are activly identified with the development of the Boundary' and he  unhesitatingly asserts that there is today more interest in Boundary mines  in the east, than in those of any other  part of the province.  Bin the concern that is attracting  the most attention is the Granby Co.  Financiers in Montreal, Toronto, New-  York and even on the other side of the  water are watching the operations . of  this concern closely, and becoming  more and more satisfied that the Granby  Co. is,one "of the companies that is  sure to make an undoubted success of  its undertakings. Its increase in the  output of copper is also putting the  Granby Co in the position of cutting  no- small figure in the copper market,  and buyers and sellers alike have their  eyes on it.  Last year the Granby Co. bent its  energies largely on, the enlargement  and perfection of its smelting works,  and this year it is doing the same thing  with the equipment ut its Phoenix  mines. .  Mr. Godenrath states that the greatest confidence-in the Granby Co. is  expressed by those in a position to  know exactly what the company is accomplishing both at its mines and at  its reduction works. It would not be  surprising,'-indeed, in spite of the large  ex|ienditures the company is making,  if a dividend was declared this fall;  Boundary Creek License Board Met at Midway on Monday.  Last Monday the semi-annual'statutory meeting of the license board of  the Boundary Creek License District  was held at Mid\yay. There were  granted 31 licenses to sell liquor at re^  tail outside of municipalities from the(  Another important epoch in 'the  progicss of Boundary mining and  .smelting was marked this week, Wednesday, when the single furnace of the  Sun->et smelter at Boundary Falls, three  miles below Greenwood 011 Boundary  creek, was blown in, making���with  four at Grand Forks and two at Green-  wood-!��seven blast furnaces now in active operation jn the Boundary district.  Approximately the seven furnaces arc  reducing over 2,500. tons of Bonndnry  ore each 24 hours,  'I'he Sunset smelter has had a somewhat varied career, being originally  constructed to be opeiateu on the so-  called pyritic system. This, however,  was never done, the entire plant having  to be remodelled and run on the plan  which the other smelters of the Boundary are now conducted.  .  The smelter property was purchased  hy the Montreal and Boston company  some three months ago. The works  were built during the closing months  of 1900 and the early months of 1901^  under the direction of Andrew Laid-  law, who took a prominent part in the  organization of the Standard Pyritic  Smelting Company, and several associated mining companies, of which he  became managing director. .Before  the plant was installed Mr. Laidiaw  sought the advice of James W. Neill,  of Salt Lake, Utah, who after giving  the works his attention for a short lime,  declined to accept the position of superintendent. A little later E. J. Wilson, for sometime metallurgist in charge  of the blast furnaces of the Great Falls  smelter, Montana, arrived to take  charge, but owing to a lack of sufficient supply of ore to keep the smelter  running continuously, and for other  reasons, he advised that the smelter  Boundary Mining Notes.  Nearly nil the mines in the Boun-  daiy will close foi Dominion Day.  The fiaming of the new 40x80 jna-  chincand blacksmith shop for the  Ci.inhy mines was done this week.  For the fitst time since last March  the Snowshoe enters the shipping list  again this week, sending out 420 tons  to the Sunset smelter at lioundaiy  Falls.  Work has been staited on the foundations for the house for the new oie  crusher for the Knob Hill mine, which  will be shipped fiom Sherbiooke, Que.,  on the 15th of July.  Robeit Clark, has formed a partnership with Dave Evans to quarry o��e  fiom the Seattle mine, north fork of  the Kettle river. Shipments will be  made by wagon to the Gianby smelter.  On account of shoitagc of coke two  furnaces of the Granby smeltei were  blown out this week, and as the ore  bins were full a number of men at the  mines weie laid ou. It is hoped to  start the third furnace next week and  the fourth the following week.  Another Summit camp mine is resuming operations and will begin the  shipment of ore at once. Yesterday  W. T. Smith, it is said, began fvoik at  the Emma mine with a force of about  ten men, and in' a shoit time the fence  will be increased to twenty. Arrangements have been made with- the Hall  Mines smelter, at Nelson, to ship at  the rate of two cars daily, the ore having a laige peicentage of iron and being desiiable foi fluxing purposes. The  Emma is owned by MacKenzie and  Mann and W.T. Smith, and is generally known as one of the big Summit  camp properties.  GONE TO THE  TREADWELL  Wm. Yolen   Williams On a  Trip to Alaska.

Then financial difficulties overtook  the Standard Pyritic Smelting Company which was under obligation to  William Price, of Quebec, for money  advanced. Mr. Price, as mortgagee,  took possession and the starting up of  the works was 'indefinitely postponed.  Eventually the property was purchased by the Montreal, and Boston  Copper Company, as stated above,  and steps were immediately taken to  prepare the srnelter for practical work.  Albert I. Goodell, of Pueblo, Colorado, who had been well recommended  for the'position of metallurgist, arrived j  in Greenwood shortly afterwards, and J  since has been actively engaged in  making alterations and improvements,  which are now complete.  250,000 Tons of Ore In Sljhl.  The   Montreal  &  Boston  Copper  Company, Limited, was organized last  year with a nominal capital of $ 3,000,-  000 in 600,000 shares of $5 each.   The  leading men in the company are Messrs.  Greenshields, Montreal; Wm. Mitchell,  Drummondville, Quebec; T. Crockett,  Riviere Du Loup, Quebec; H. H. Melville, Boston;   G. H. and A. A, Munroe, Montreal.     The  company  owns  the Sunset,  Crown Silver,   C. O. D.,  ane Florence Fraction mineral  mines,  all adjoining and situated in Deadwood  Camp, near Greenwood.  The Sunset is opened up to a depth  of 400 feet and the Crown Silver to a  depth of 262 feel, and it is stated that  250,000 ions of ore are in sight in the  Sunset above the roo-foot level, and  that the ore body has been, cut at the  300 and 4oorfoot levels. Captain  Harry Johns is in charge at the mine.  Has Two Furnaces Running.  Wednesday the idle furnace of the  Greenwood smelter was started up, and  for the first time in its history this  smelter is now operating two blasts,  running through about Soo tons of ore  daily. The first furnace was started  F'ebruary 18, 1901, and in 16 months  has reduced about t ��0,000 tons of ore,  largely from   the company's Mother  All Railways Running Trains lo tbe Smeller  City on Tbosc Days.

Wednesday.  Tuesday, July 1���Special train from  Last year William Yolen Williams,  supeiiutendent of the Granby mines,  visited the ^reat Lake copper district  of Michigan, with a view to picking up  new ideas about mining low grade ores.  He spent some weeks there and visited  all the prominent properties, and made  a study of the methods there in vogue.  This year Mr. Williams is making  another trip in the opposite direction,  with the same purpose in view. Accompanied by O. li. Smith, Jr., the  company's resident engineer, Mr. Williams left by Saturday's train for the  coast, intending to sail from Vancouver  for Alaska early this week. His chief  objective point on this trip is the well  known dividend paying mine on Douglas Island, Alaska, known as the Tread-  well���one of the lowest grade gold  mines on the American continent that  is continuously paying dividends; a  mine that keeps in the neighborhood  of a thousand stamps pounding out  the yellow metal.  Mr. Williams expects to be absent  from Phoenix two or three weeks, and  if time permits will probably take a  look at some other properties on the  coast. At the 1'readwell a large number of men are employed, the ore being quarried out and the cave system  of mining employed to some extent.;  EUGENE VICTOR DEBS COMING.  Will.

A SERIOUS PROBLEM.  One of the serious ploblems that is  confronting the people of the mining  districts of British Columbia is what  , to do with the indigent men who are  totally disabled in the course of their  ���,     work in the mines of this  province.  '" Where a large number of men are employed in a dangerous calling like that  of mining, there must of necessity be  more or less casualties, and as the  number of men employed increases  the number   of  these   unfortunates  must, of necessity, also grow.     *  ^^^^^  At present there is no way of' providing for these poor men, and if they  . happen to be improvident'and with-  ' out friends, as is too often'* the case,  their situation is peculiarly sad'as well  as serious. They must exist, and yet  their means of livelihood is cut off  and no provision is made for their  living. Thus, much against theii will,  they become direct objects of charity.  A far as can be learned no provision has ever been made for such unfortunates, and none is being arranged.  Most accidents in mines' are from explosions, and the eyes are the first to  suffer���those delicate organs the loss  of which cannot be appreciated except  "by the victims themselves., Probably  there is no greater misfortune than  loss of sight, and the majority of min  /     ing accidents tesult in this.  'i'he government has an Old' Men's  Home at Kamloops, but this institu  , tion is overcrowded, and if it was not,  the rules require a fifteen years' residence in the province to become eligible.^ This, therefore is,out of the  question. Nevertheless, something  must be done, as the situation will certainly become more aggravated as time  goes on and the number of employees  increases, as it is bound to do.  The suggestion has been made that  the government establish a horns for  disabled miners, and support it by. the  small tax of 25 cents per month on  . each working  miner.     As there are  say about 10,000  working miners in  the province, this would' provide an  ^-'1 annual income* of at leasf $25,000' to  ��j' fceep1 up such a home, &n ample sum.  ���This plan has been approved by many  practical miners, and has many merits  The tax1 would be small, would be collectible  monthly,   and  so would  be  scarcely felt.  Up to date the government has simply refused to take up this matter,  seemingly not realizing the pressing  importance of it. If there is any way  of getting the powers that be at Victoria to consider the matter, it should  be taken hold of at once.  A short time since a man lost his  eyesight in the mines in Phoenix.  Subscriptions were quickly .raised  among the always generous miners to  send him to Spokane for expert oculist  The people of British Columbia aie  heaving sighs of relief to think that  the ardous labors of our legislators are  finally at an end.  It is said that the autocrat of Russia  wants peace in his dominions, and in  order to get it will prepare for wai.  i'he czar evidently still has his troubles  Revelstoke is trying to regulate its  Chinese laundries. Grand Foi ks ti ied  to do the same thing, with little 01 no  success. This is, one trouble that  Phoenix is not blessed with, -      '  Referring to the Vellowhead Pass  railway bill, the Vancouver Piovince  remarked that "the measure awaits  ascent." Most British Columbians  had an idea that it already came pi etty  high.           On the ist and 2d of June the  Granby mines and smelter will be  closed/to give the 680 employees a  little vacation. The Grand Forks  races will probably attract many ol  them,  Mori. l.Asr Spikes���The V., V. &  E. expects to be in Republic July ist.  It hasn't diiven the last spike yet.

He  will be like the smallest kind of a toad  in the largest kind of a puddle over  there.  It is reported that the recent discovery on the Mother Lode, Dead-  wood camp, v. ill double the ore re  sources of that well known mine.  This is good news for the Boundaiy  country.  Our wise men at Victoria have reduced the voting* age from 21 to 18.  Those nl. L.

Those closest in touch with the cop  per market look for a substantial rise  in July, for the reason that most of  the annual contracts are made in that  month. Let her soar. A rising cop  per market looks good to the Boundary.  Unfortunately it does  not  appear  that the efforts of Kootenay delegates  Good auveitising is telling a man  what he wants and where he can get it.  A man in the"' advertising business  must be in earnest: No .halfhearted  policy will bring success.  A firm belief that your business is  worthy of paticnage is essentia) to the  writing of good adveitisments.  It's not the space occupied or the  peculiar signatuie that make the ad.  It's what the public gets out of the  space.  The up-to-date advertiser not only  studies methods of adveitising, but he  makes a thorough study of human nature as it exists in his constituency.  Where adveitising properly represents the store, and the store propeily  lives up to its advertising, you have all  the component elements of a first-class  business success.  There are a gieat many ways of advertising a business, hut no one has  ever improved on the good old-fashioned way of telling the plain facts in an  intelligent, stiaty lit forward manner.

Manyof. the great, and otherwise,  family journals of British .'

The first is,'  how can a make bricks without; straw;  and the other is, what oppoi trinity has  a man like Dunsmuir to effect decern  legislation, when, in the first place, he  was forced,-practically, into the premiership against his wishes, and in  the second place, when those who  placed him there promised him their  allegiance, and have, on every possible  occasion, been  plotting his down-faJK  Having thus defended the absentee  premier, it is now open for the Old  Jackdaw- to attack him, like the rest of  the literary crows and Jackdaws. But  the criticisms will be only two in number, and if the Old Jackeaw makes  that the limit, let no other Jackdaw  caw or any other dog bark. The first  is that it is the duty of the government  to make some provision for the poor  and helpless miners and others who  are so frequently suffering the loss of  their sight and other faculties. What  is a government for, if not to provide  and care for the helpless members of  its great family.  There a,re detjf a.nd. dumb institutes,  lunatic asylms, and other homes for  the nation's afflicted ones. Because  the miners, who have so recently been  so sadly afflicted, are nbl eligible lor  any of these institutes, are they not  deserving ?

But here is where the Jackdaw gets  after the government policv in case  number two, and at the same time suggests a way out of the diiTnaihy of providing a Home For the Disabled. Let  the government cancel their agreement  of the huge cash subsjdy to McKenzie  it Mann, an.d. give the construction of  the road to Morgan and Hill,* who have  not only constructed the only transcontinental road without either subsidy  or land, for the simple price of "the-  right-of-way," but who accordiiig to J.  J. Hill, as reported in the Nanaimo  Herald, are willing to build the Coast-  Kootenay road on the same terms as  their great trans-continental road ;  and then let the government appropriate the amount of the cash subsidy,  votedj'to McKenzie & Mann, to the  establishment of a "home for the disabled."  Would not the people object ? Not  much. As it is, the public is called  u,po.n to support these cases, and at the  Value of l:aith in  tbe  Local  Newspaper of  True Merit.  'The force ol" habit is the greatest  potency in human lite. There is no  tiuism that is more convincing than  the familiar one, :,\Ve are all creatures  of habits" The reading of newspapers  is a habit that is rooted and grounded  in the American mind. Men can not  get away from it. The newspapei is as  intitJi a pa't of the life of the average  man as is eating or sleeping. He reads  the advertisements as well as the news  matter. lie has acquired the habit, of  going to the newspaper lo find out  where to go to make purchases, and-he j  it-lies upon the newspaper  to tell   him1  where are lhe desirable and  tlie best!  1  places to  get   an   equivalent   for  his  money.  The value ol" this faith cannot he  over-estimated, by'the advertiser. He  gets the full benefi' of the confidence  which the subscriber has iii his paper.  Circulars may be cast aside unread.  .Men may pass by flaming posters with  out reading them. But lhe paper is a  welcome guest in every house and its  contents are read with avidity and afterwards discussed by the members of  the home. The advertisements come  in for their share of notice, this being  especially true as to the wife and husband, who find the buying of things for  the heeds of life a grave responsibility.  Each year but adds to thervalue of the  newspaper as an advertising medium.  Its importance and dignity increase  with time, and as il grows, it adds to  its value in every way.���Selected.
