For the last two weeks the woik ol  excavating foi the foundations foi the  compressor has been going on. As the  com.iicssoi house will lie on solid rock  it sell, it will make the most peimancnt  kind of a foundation to hold tlie heavj  machinery, Yesterday work was stait  ed o 1 the foundation timbcis for the  building, which will be about ^,40x80  feet in size, and it will be pushed as-  fast as men can do it.  The.compiessor is of the 'Rand duplex type, and is ai ranged to be operated by either elet tricity or steam, the  cunent|*eiiig lakeji_from.ihe ��a.scade  power line, which runs close to the  Snowshoe. It was built so that ten  moie diills can be added at any time,  when needed.  Number of Employees Increased.  In oidei to keep up with the development of the property, and at the same  time push the operations for the extensive improvements, the force of men  employed at the Snowshoe has of late  been materially increased. For a long  time the average number was about 30,  but lately this has been gradually  increased, untjl at present there are  between 65 and 70 men on the mine  payroll. ���'.,..,,  At the main shaft of the Snowshoe,  which is on. an incline, 'the work ol  deepening that important part has  been steadily progressing. After connecting the 200 and 100 foot railway  tunnel workings with ihesurfa.ee, sinking was continued, and the shaft is  now down more than 275 feet; and  will soon reach the 300 foot level.  This is a three compartment shaft,  about 8x15 feet iii the clear, and will  be the permanent working shaft'of the  Snowshoe, and through .which most of  the diewill be extracted.  Plans are being made Ipr'the-ihstal  lation of one qf the largest hoists in  the Boundary country fur use on the  Snowshoe, nnd this will doubtless be  put in this summer, /.At-���present the  old hoist, formerly used on the old  shaft, is being utilized, temporarily.'

Call at the Granby Exchange and exchange or get cash for them.      29-30  Robert McCutcheon, formerly of  Phoenix, had his right leg nearly severed at the knee last week by falling  nijainsl a circular saw in the new  shingle mill at the head of Christina  lake.  K'ng HeC!>i the new local manager  for P. Burns & Co., assumed his duties  last Monday and moved up his family  from Greenwood. They occupy the  l'resbyterian manse on Grey Eagle  avenue.  A re|k>rter iu Spokane recently interviewed lay P. Graves in regard to  costs of mining and smelting by the  Granby Co. Here is what was published in the matter :  "I believe that before a gteat while we  shall be able to mine and to smelt the  Granby ores for $3 a ton," said J. P.  Graves, general manager of. the Granby  properties.  "Do you mean that you will be able  to handle ores running in value as low  as $3 a ton ?" Mr, Graves was asked.  'No. I do not," he answeied. "The  tern of ��3 will not include the cost of  refining nor of marketing the product,  and I do not care to say what the expense of those items is. The $3 figure,  however, will include mining and smelting.  "We are steadily effecting economies  in the cost of treating our ores. Coke  is now costing us $6 a ton, delivered.  I understand that the Northport smelter is obliged to pay $10 a ton for its  coke, as it is unable to secure coal  supplies from the Crow's Nest pass  fields. The difference of $4 a ton  which we haye secured is a very nia-  f terial advantage,  Not Uneasy Over Copper.  "I am not uneasy over the outlook  for copper.    The surplus stock  has  been almost completely consumed, and  the users of the  brown   metal   have  been living almost on a hand to mouth  basis.  The present low price of cop-  pei, ranging between 12 and 12^ cents  per pound, is conceded to be manipulative, and under normal conditions it  will soon right itself;    I think that the  price will be steady som,ew;here between  14 and 16 cents, and 1 look for a  recovery in  values  in  July.     Whether  or not the warring copper interests get  together, the price of copper is sure to  advance in response to the enormous  demand for  it,  and we  are already  .witnes'sing signs of that advance.  "Every business building, every  manufactory, every ship, particularly  every dwelling-'now,, uses capper in  greater, or \es.s quantities for electric  wiring. The use of copper in the  electrical art is extended to Europe,  which, aside from Germany, made little  progress until lately in electricity..  "The consumption in the past year  has been something like 10 per cent  more than the production. The enormous dram 0)\ the surplus stocks  has wiped them away, and higher  prices for capper are almost inevitable."  Duncanson Sails from San Francisco 6a  tbe IStb df June.  Tuesday's train carried D. H. Duncanson and wife, bound for San Francisco direct. Mr. Duncanson, who  has accepted a jwsilion with the Pacific Constiuction Co., expects to sail  foi.Fanning Island, in the Southern  Pacific ocean on tbe 15th instant. The  vessel will be the brig Gallilee, a  missionaiy sailing ship, destioned for  the Snmoan islands, but which will go  out of its way to land Mr, Duncanson,  and his crew of 40 men on Fanning1  Island.  On his arrival there, Mr. Duncanson will piocced to erect the needful  buildings .or the all I'ritish cable now  being laid from Canada to Australia.  In doing this he will expend something  like $i2o;ooo for the company, and  expects to occupy about six months in  the work, getting back to San Francisco about th���> Hist of next January.  Only once during that time will he or his  men heat from the civilized world, and  that will a month later than landing,  when a supply ship will be sent from  San Francisco. The island itself is a  coral ice! and uninhabited at present.'  Mis. Duncanson will accompany her  husband to the other side of the world.

'  Boundary Mining Notes.  This week the Mother Lode shipped  3,232 tons of ore.  The Jewel mine, Long Lake camp,  resumed shipments to the Granby  smeller this week, sending out two cars.  One day this week it was asserted  that 80 cais of coke were en route from  Fernie and Michel to the Granby  smelter.  j. A. Clark, pf Trail.-has made a contract with the Granby smelter to supply 150 cars of clay, to be used for  converter linings.  Last Monday the B. C. chartered  Co., Ltd., began surface woik on the  B. C! group in Summit camp, under  .Foreman Anderson.  A force of 12 or 15 men " is now  working on the Providence, the Greenwood piopeity that has attracted so  much attention lately.  It is expected, (hat Porter Bros, will  be prepared to commence their contract with the Gsanby mines in about  ten days. New steel cable was required from the east.  Several days this week the ore shipments from Phoenix camp 'were cut  down to 1,000 tons. This was occasioned by one furnace at the Granby  smelter not running because of lack of  coke. ;  If all goes well, in another week or  ten days the Sunset smelter, at Boundary Falls, should be ready to begin  operations. The crushing machinery  was delayed by the mud slides on the  Crows' Nest Pass railway.  It was a fortunate 'thing for the  managmcut ot the Winnipeg mine  that the machinery and buildings of  the company-were well insured, else the  fireoflast week Friday which destroyed the shafthouse, engine, boilers and  compressor, "would have'been a serious  loss to the company. ' As- it is, it wjjl  delay getting at woi k again considerably, and will entail no small expense  by reason of the workings filling wijh  water.  t Richard Piewman, the managing  director, came over from Rossland pn  last Saturday's train, and has been  spending the week in and around  Phoenix, waiting for the insurance adjuster from Portland to arrive, and  decide on the exact amount of loss.  The insurance was in the Transatlantic  Fire Insurance Co., there being a risk  of $5,500, which it is expected will  nearly cover the damage sustained;  apparently the building and contents  are a complete loss. Mr. Piewman  stated to the Pioneer that it was his  full intention to secure another compressor plant at once, and resume  operations as soon as practicable.  Exactly how the fire happened is  not known, but it is believed that one  of the men on the night shift left his  candle burning in the dry room, uxihe  shafthouse, and that it burned" down  to the socket, and so set fire to the'inflammable structure, and gained much  headway before it was discovered by  \the blacksmith, who was just coming  on shift. ' It was then impossible to  extinguish the flames.  QRANO FORKS RACES.  Programme  for the  Dominion  Day   Meet���  $4,500 In Prize?.  TUESDAY A^TK'-VO.O!', JVI.Y 1.

Peace in South Africa,  I ast Saturday the peace terms were  signed between the'British and Boers  in South Africa, and that long struggle  is now ended.

The action brought by the Standard  Pyritic Smelting Co., Ltd., against the  B.C. CopperCo., Ltd., in the Supreme  Court at Greenwood, to recover $687.-  35, stated to be due by the defendent  company for a receiving'well, etc., has  been disposed of by the jury finding a  ���verdict forthe defendent. The chief  point at issue was that the -'plaintiff.  company maintained that the receiving well was sold to the defendent  company, whilst the latter produced  evidence to show that it was only lent  anththat it had offered to retuni it in  good condition when its own ..well,  previously ordered was received.,  Mr. McMillan Appoinled.

This was  it serious matter to the mining mdustiy  of the Boundary, but one that could  hardly be foreseen. As a direct result,  . one of the four furnaces of the Granby  smelter was ,forced to suspend operations ;or a time, entailing a loss, it is  stated, of many thousands of dollars to  that concern. Happily this wasjiot  destined to last long, as the supply  was soon coming again.  In a recent issue, the Nelson Daily  News, supposed to be the organ of the  Crow's Nest Coal Co., asserted that  the officers of the Coal Co. had approached the smelter managment, requesting that a supply of 1,000 tons of  coke be laid in h against emergencies,  and that the suggestion was disregarded. This is not a statement of fact.  At the time of the Fernie disaster the  Granby Co. had 2,500 tons of coke on  hand, which was soon used up when  the daily supply of 200  tons, or ten  ���cars, failed to arrive.     (  t  ��� It had always been the custom of  the Giaiiby Co. to keep a supply of  coke'and1 ore on hand to provide  against accidents at the company's  mines or in transportation, but in view  of the statements made that the Crow's  Nest Coal Co. had so much coke that"  they had no market for,' it- was never  thought that any trouble would be experienced in getting all that was needed. The terrible accident happened,  and coke was not shipped for a time.  The Granby Co. could ( not provide  Against this and could not be expected  to do so. ,  Probably as long as we remain on  this mundane sphere nothing like the  coronation of Edward VII. will occui  again. Peihaps that is the reason so  much is being made of it. The date  jset is June 26th.

'He asserts that prominent  mining men claim it is unwcrkable.  THE FARCE AT VICTORIA.  If ever theie was a government in  the province of British Columb a that  appeared to be thoroughly discredited  . by the people at large, it is the aggregation now masquerading under that  nani:, under the guidance of Piemiei  Dunsmuir, at Vicoria. For months  it has been holding itself in power by  the narrowest of majorities, its down-  tall seeming imminent a number of  , times.  At the last session Mr. Dunsmuir  promised to have an extra session.and  present his railway policy. But he  iorgot all about It till this )ea/, and  when the railway bill was finally  brought down it was indeed fearfully  and wonderfully made. So much so  in fact, and such a hue and cry was  raised ihroughout the v prjpvince over  the outrageous land grants tacked to  the bill, that,' in order to appease the  people, and incidentally get votes  enough to carry it through, the objectionable land giant feature was finally  eliminated. This was to > keep .Joe  Martin in line. '  Then Messrs. Ellison and Clifford  openly threatened to leave the government, and to satisfy them their.'continued allegiance was bought by foring-  j'ng in bills for railways for their particular constituencies.  , The Provincial Piogressive Party is  getting a strong foothold in the Slocan,  several local organizations having been  foimed there and in other parts of the  piovince., Evidently the progressives  scent-a provincial election.  - One result ot the searching investigation being made of the recent Fernie  disaster, will be more stiingent regulations protecting the lives of the mineis.  Such regulaticns cannot be too com  plete nor too thoroughly enforced.  Every man who goes into a mine takes  his life in his hands and should be  protected by all human ingenuity.  The Grand Forks News-Gazette as  sens that upwards of $20,000 is sent  out yearly to T. Eaton Co., Toronto,  and other eastern departmental stores.  A local man asks us why union men,  getting,union wages in a union locality  should extensively patronize eastern  non-union sweat-shops persistently and  constantly.''AVe pass the question up  to our readers.

Sometblnr Personal of Our Member In tbe Leg-  iilainre.  ; 'I'he Victoria Times is running an  excellent series ofartieles on the members of the British Columbia legislature.- 1  In a.recent-issue, appears a likenes*  of Smith Curtis, member for Rosslauc  ilding (of which the.Boundaiy is yet;.  pan)'together .'wiilvii shoit acctiiint o  his business; audi-political liie. We  reproduce the sketch in full:  ��� "It is a free, and withal a wonder-  fujly keen, lance which is wielded b)  the tireless './member for Rossland,  Smith Curtis. No man in thc house  more conscientiously follows eveiy  panicle of business coming before thc  legislature tlia'n he. He seeks lo compass the whole of the business, and tlm  imposes on him a task whiih might be  borne by three or four menibcis.  "The  deplorable   handicap   under  which Mr. Curtis labors, namely par  tin),deafness, seems only lo have sharpened   his other faculties,  and  it is  rarely indeed tliat he is taken at a disadvantage.    He is sleepless in his vigilance, and  manages to sandwich an  enormous amount of work in between  the opening and closing of the session.  "Of hit, great  ability,  there is no  doubt; of his courage and 'sincerity,  there is little question.    Other members are often unable to follow him iu  his advanced themes of political economy and of government, but they cannot but admire   his  forcefulness and  his untiring zeal   in   propagating  his  views.  "Mr. Curtis speaks for liberalism  and for labor, and nowhere in British  Columbia do those great factois in Us  affairs find an abler exponent and advocate.  "He is a native of Ontario, having  l.een born iu Leeds county.     At the  age of fifteen he began teaching school,  eventuqlly p.blninjng a. firsttclass graue  A certificate and. the degree of B. A.  In 1882'lie 1 ft Ottawa, where he was  the first assistant master in the Piovin-  cial   Model "'school,' attached  to the  Normal school there, and came to Portage laPraiiie, Manitoba, and studied  law in  the  office  of  Joseph   Martin,  whose law partner he became in 1885,  and remained such until   1891, when  ill-health caused his reliiement,  and  for five years prevented   his engaging  in active business.  "When Joseph Martin resigned his  seat in the provincial legislature of  Manitoba in 1891 to contest Brandon  with the Hon, T. Mayne Daly in the  federal election of that year, Mr. Curtis was selected by the liberals as candidate to succeed Mr. Martin ; but  upon the defeat of Mr. Martin by Mr.  Daly Mr. Curtis retired from the local  contest so as to enable Mr. Martin to  run and he wits again returned to the  local house.  "He came to Rossland in 1S96,  where he practiced law for some two  years. He has devoted his time principally to mining, for three years past.  In 1900 he was returned for the legislature, having first been appointed  Minister of Mines in Mr. Martin's cab-  net.- Que of his great achievements  during his brief tenure of office was  the settlement of the Rossland strike  by conciliatory measures,  "He was married in 1890 to Lilly  E. Mills, daughter of the late Wm.  Mills, of Ottawa.  "Mr. Curtis is perhaps unsurpassed  as a debater in the present house, is  remarkable for his readiness, and is  prompt and incisive in repartee. He  withdrew his support from his old leader last session when he discovered that  Mr. Martin proposed to support the  government."  AT  A  THE  BINER BLOCK  >feai Second Sheet, on Knob 1 III! Ay.
