'I'he conservatives have it figured out  that if there are three tickets in the  field���conservative, labor and liberal  ���they will have the best possible show  of winning, as they already have on the  membership list of the local organixa-  tion enough votes to carry Phoenix,the  vote 'being based on. the Dominion  election of 1901.

V. R. engineers were laying out  the spur to the Oro Denero this week,  in Snmmit camp.  In a few days the new electric hqjst-  at the Snowshoe will be in use, the  shaft now being ready.  Supplies are arriving at Phoenix for  the laying of the rails to the Brooklyn  and Stemwinder dumps.  For the' fourth consecutive week ore |  shipments from the Snowshoe mine  this  week  exceed  those  for the previous seven days. ''  It is , expected that work will be rer  sumed on the Big Copper and also the  King Solomon claims, in West Copper  camp, in the near future.  The 1); C. Copper Co. is asking for  tenders for hauling some ore from the  Morrison mine to the Deadwood spur,  for testing purposes at the Mother-  Ix>de smelter. :     '   '.  ���Last week five carloads of plant for  the new addition to the Granby smelter arrived at those works, from Chicago. Some time next month the two.  new furnaces-are expected to be ready  for business, making six in all.  ' The strike on the Defiance claim,  near Greenwood, which was reported  in the last issue of the Pioneer, proves  to be $500 ore, it assaying 900 ounces;  of silver and an ounce and a half, in  gold. Wm. Fowler has a lease and  bond on the property.  With the arrival of the 2,000 tons of  Fairfax, Wash, coke, ordered some  time since, the Granby smelter will  probably have three furnaces in blast,  there being now but two. A thousand  tons of coke have already arrived, and  by Monday a third furnace will be  blown in. ''  Next week President Flumerfelt, Of  the International Coal and Coka Co.,  will go to Blairmore to make a commercial test of the coal for coking pur  poses, after which, if successful, as anticipated, 100 coking ovens will be  erected with all possible speed, to relieve the coke shortage at "SBoundary  smelters.

The installation  will take place on the second Tuesday  in July, the deputy grand chancellor  being J. A. Clark.  S. H. C. Miner, president of tlie  Granby Co., with Mrs. Miner, were in  camp again this week, and ne\t Mon.  day will start for home, in the Eastern  Townships of Quebec, going first to  ���Victoria and then to the coal fields at  Blairmore. On this trip to the unities  Mr. Miner was accompanied by General Manager Graves, Assistant Man  ager Galer and W. B. Reed, a retired  New York banker.  When asked  by  the  Pioneer man  what bethought of the outlook of the  Boundary country, since his  last visit  of a year ago,   Mr.   Miner responded  that he was better pleased than ever at  the prospects of the  entire  country,  and especially, with those for the Granby mines.   He took particular pleasure  in notingthat everything about his company's mines and smelter was in a better condition than ever, and the problem of economical extraction and treatment was gradually being gotten down  to the point desired.    The work is be-  ing.well done by the subordinates which  he has in charge, and the Granby president had no criticisms to offer.     He  believed also that the  party of prominent copper experts, who recently visited the camp, were all more than satisfied.with the bright future for the Granby Co:  Mr. Miner was visited'a couple of  years ago at his office in.Montreal by a  gentleman from the Boundary, and the  question was then asked as to when he  expected to begin to get returns from  the large investments being made m  mining in this country. Mr. Miner is  reported to have responded that if he  began to receive returns in' the course  of five or ten years, he should feel well  satisfied. The first five years are yet  scarcely up, and it is evident that in a  short time, the Gnmby Ca will begin:  paying dividends, especially after the  coke problem is satisfactorily solved.  He has believed all along that it would  take time and large investinent, intelligently applied, to work out the problem  successfully, and his opinion is rapidly  being verified.  New York Banker Satisfied.  Wm. B. Reed, who accompanied  Mr. Miner, invested in Granby. shares  some two years ago, and has since increased his holdings. Up to this time  he has never been in British Columbia.  He went all over and through the Granby mines while here, and although a  conservative man, was not a little pleased at the evidences of permanancy and  economy in the working of the mines  and smelter.  Mr Reed was for 37 years connected  with the First National Bank of New  York, retiring last year from the position of cashier. This bank has the comfortable capital 'of ten millions, a reserve of a like amount, and deposits  of some eighty millions of dollars.

Within a week  or two  there have  been published in the Boundary press,  as well as in a number of outside papers, opinions about the Granby mines  that are worthy of more than passing  attention.   These opinions are significant because they come from  gentlemen who are acknowledged to be lead-  , ers in the copper  mining industry of  the American  continent ��� gentlemen  who have already  been successful in  copper in other fields, and  who have  only lately become  interested in the  Boundary.  Since the Pioneer began the work of  telling the outside world of the wonderful  mineral riches  of the, Boundary,  nearly four years ago,, many  persons  have  visited the Granby mines, and  have expressed the most profound surprise at the immensity of the  ore deposits, as well as with the down-to-date  preparations made for the economical  extraction of values.1     But none have  held the same relations to the copper  mining industry as do the gentlemen  from Boston and New York who recently visited Phoenix for the first time,  and thus realized the gigantic  potentialities here found.  When such men as John Stanton,  George Martin Luther, J. B. Francis  HerreschofT and Clement S. Houghton  say that they have never seen anything  like the Granby ore' deposits, although  they are familiar with the Butte and  Michigan copper fields, one can rest  assured that the opinion is one "that  really counts. Those gentlemen, collectively and individually, were simply  astonished at what they saw, and frankly said that had they not seen it they  would not have believed it. If there  could be a higher testimonial to the  richness and permanency of the Boundary ore deposits, the Pioneer has yet  to learn of it.  It was a pleasant sight to see the  experts referred to tramping over the  surface of the Granby mines and then  through two or three of the four miles  of underground workings of the properties, and note their expressions of  pleased surprise.  The Pioneer predicts that no one  thing that has happened in the Bound  ary in the last few year!; will eventually  be of as much benefit to* this section,  representing as these gentlemen do directly many millions of capital. It is  to be hoped that the doubter and pessimist has read the opinions referred to,  and will agree with them that the Boundary is destined to become one- of the  greatest, if not the greatest, mining district on the continent of North America.  New voters' lists will soon be in  course of preparation, and those wishing to be in the swim should lose no  time in getting registered ��� no matter  where or how your name was on the  lists before.  Another outfit has obtained a Dominion charter for a Coast-Kootenay  railway���the McLean Bros. One-half  of the money spent so far on getting  charters for this road would have built  a good sized piece of it.  While Joseph Martin has resigned  from the leadership of the liberal party  in this province, no one really thinks  that he has dropped out of politics ���  that's not like Joe. He'll be sure to  turn up when least expected.  WHAT EDITORS SAY  John Should Know���The Bank of  Montreal has increased i}s capital from  $12,000,000 to $13,379,240, and its  rest from $8,400,000 to $9,000,000.  Banks and newspapers are great money  makers.���Nelson Tribune.  A Great Advertisement ��� The  Miner party of capitalists who visited  the Granby copper mines -��� and plant  last week are filling the papers with  the accounts of the wonders they saw.  It is a great advertisement for British  Columbia.���Slocan Drill.  The Least Evii The party line  system of government admittedly has  its evils, but out of the big book of  practical experience British Columbia  can testify that they are as naught in  comparison with the evils arising under  non-party administration.��� Vancouver  World.  Must Pay Taxes ��� Even the Victoria Colonist will be made to swing  into line for McBride. This will be a  bitter pill for Dunsmuir to swallow, because he realizes that he will have to  pay his share of the ta^es���something  that he has succeeded in avoiding to  some extent heretofore. ��� Rossland  Miner.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  Responding to an item that recently  appeared in the Pioneer, in which St.  Peter directed to the lower regions  those who applied at the pearly gate  for admission, but who acknowledged  that they had not paid the printer, a  subscriber to this paper living in Rossland writes to learn quickly how much  he owes, so that he can settle before  he shuffles of this mortal coil. Of  course, tlie information desired was  promptly furnished by first mail.  nt ������  . We merely mention this little incident, as there may be other gentle  readers thirsting after similar information, to whom this tale may be a hint.  If such there be, our force Of subscription clerks will take the utmost  pleasure in affording the desired information upon request, so that all may  have the same opportunity of treading  in the straight and narrow path. Dj  not be backward about coming forward. ���., .      .   ' ���.'������,,  What the intending investor in a  mine wants to know is, how much metal  the ore contains, the amount of ore  available, the cost of mining and of reduction, and the probable length of  time required to exhaustjhe visible supply, says an exchange. He cares little  about the genesis of: the ore deposit,  how the gold or silver or copper Or other  metals come into the ore. He wants  to know how to get it out in the shortest possible time at the least possible  cost. If promoters' reports dealt more  with substantial, pertinent facts and  less with fancy and unnecessary scientific information,' the man with the  money and he could more quickly come  to an understanding.  Twelve years ago $100 invested in  the United Verde copper mine cost"$i  a share and was worth $100. Today  that $100 worth of shares is worth  $30,000, and the returns are $1,200  per year; $100 invested in the Home-  stake, South Dakota, in stock which  sold for $1 a share is now worth $20,-  000. One hundred dollars invested in  the Greene Consolidated, at $1 a share  two years ago, is now worth $8,700.  Query: What will Granby shares,  that can now be had for $5, be worth  in a couple of years.  D. J. MATHESON,  insurance agent,  fire, i.ikk, acc dent.  Coiiniitsfiltiner for Inking Altliliivits.

In Servia when the people become  tired of the existing government, they  kill the king and queen and proceed  to fill their shoes with new aspirants.  This is a simple way, but it is too  much like barbaric ages. In this  country if we do not like the government in power we grin and bear it till  a new election occurs.  The good people of Greenwoed are  moving against the pollution of Twin  creek, from which that city's water supply is obtained, and which creek flows  directly through the heart of the corporation of Phoenix. The true solution  to such a vexed problem is to secure  some other .source of supply.  The power of intelligent publicity  never grows less.  Advertising carves a channel through  which the tide of trade will surge.  Those who wait for the dead and  the man who never advertises will long  go barefooted.  Everything in connection with a  modern business is advertising in one  form or another.  Advertising is a plain business proposition and should form the foundation  of every business venture.

The portalof  No. 2 tunnel is at a point above the  Old Ironsides shaft house. This tun  nel runs under the Knob Hill railway  spur, and connects with the 100-foot  level on the Knob Hill claim. Ore is  taken from this level and dumped into  an ore bin of 3,oqp tons capacity, which  'was built last year above the Old Ironsides railway spur. No. 3 tunnel,which  starts from a point about 50 feet below  the new ore bin, will tap the 100-foot  level of the Old Ironsides and, eventually, the 200-foot level of the Knob Hill  Other work done includes a great  deal of surface stripping, which expos  ed the ore body to a width of from 300  to 400 feet, as well as the enlargement  of the old ore quarries and opening of  new ones.  'I'he new machinery installed in 1902  consisted of a Farrel-BaconStyle Bore  crusher, with jaw opening 42 inches by.  30 inches, having a stated capacity of  150 tons of rock per hour, crushing it  to a size not larger than 7 to 8 inches;  a 100-h. p. Type K. Canadian General  Elearic Company's induction motor,  belted to crusher; a 3-wheel break system headworks, with 48 inch sheaves  for 1-inch rope, installed at the top of  a 2,000 foot gravity tramway recently  constructed for conveying ore from the  main quarry to the crusher. At No. 2  (Ironsides-Victoria) shaft, a 12 by 16-  inch double cylinder, section motion,  winding engine, capable of hoisting 6,-  000 pounds at a speed of 400 feet per  minute, was installed.  Surface improvements made in 1902  include the erection of a compressor  building, 121 feet by 60 feet; a machine  and blacksmith shop, 118 feet by 40  feet; a crusher building, 55 by 22 feet;  two new ore bins, together of a capacity  of 2,500 tons, and some 2,500 feet additional C. IV R. railway tracks in  switches and sidings. When the smelter is running full capacity, so that 1,-  500 tons of ore may be shipped per  diem, the number of men employed at  these mines is about 425, but when  running at half of its capacity, that i.s  with only two furnaces, the working  force is reduced to about 250 men.  Other machinery ordered in 1902  and now delivered, includes two Rand  tandem, cqmpqund air compressors,  electrically driven a,rid connected with  motors by a rope drive, having high  pressure cylinders 16 by 36, and low  pressure cylinders 28 by 36, the rated  capacity of the engines being 6,000 feet  of free air per  minute,  or sixty 3#-  inch machine drills, together with two  7oo-h. p. type C. Westinghouse induction motors to operate compressors;  twenty 3^-inch Rand machine drills,  and the following machine tools, to  complete the equipment of an up-to-  date machine shop: One screw cutting  lathe, 15-inch swing with 8-ft. bed, complete with friction counter shafts compound rest, two face plates, one io-in.  4-jawed independent chuck, etc.; one  32-inch lathe with-18-ft. bed, complete;  one 24-inch stroke shaper; one 36-ihch  upright drill press; one 600-lb single  frame steam hammer, cylinder 7 inches  in diameter by 20 inches stroke; one  hand power bending roll, to roll plate  7-16 inch thick and 48 inches wide;  one Merrill power driven pipe threading and cutting off machine, to cut off  and thread pipe from 2 /2 to 8 inches,  inclusive, and one power driven splitting shear to cut 7-16-inch plate any  width.

Development work approximating 3,500 feet  has been done on the Brooklyn, which  has a shaft 268 feet deep with two levels,  one at the depth of 150 feet and the  other at the depth of 250 feet.     It is  stated on good authority that a chute  of ore on this 250-foot level has   been  proved to beat least 1,000 feet in length  and about 20 feet in,width.     On the  Stemwinder a shaft has been sunk to a  depth of 344 -feet.     The  surface improvements include some good   mine  buildings and a steam power plant.

The Nome mine, in Ymir district, is  soon to be on the shipping list.  The ore shipments from the Slocan  have passed the 6,000 ton; mark.  Tlie now" zinc separator for the  Payne  mine is to be ready about July  The output of coal at the Morrissey  mines is expected soon to be 1,000  tons per day.  The No. 1 mine at Ainsworth is expected to start up shortly. Tlie Highland is working a force of 50 men.  After being closed for nearly three  years, the Great Western mine at  Rossland, has resumed operations.  A contract has been let by the Le  Roi No. 2 for the buildings to cover  its Elmore oil plant, to cost $7,000.  There were 998,999 tons of ore mined in the province of British Columbia  last year as compared with 920,416 the  year before.  The Western Federation of Miners  at their recent meeting loaned $2,000  to Sandon Miners' Union to fit up  their hospital.  It has been definitely decided that  the mill for the Arlington mine, near  Slocan City, will be built this season,  with a capacity of 50 tons daily.  During the year 1902 in the Koote-  nays and Boundary 3,089 new locations  were made and 6,451 assessments were  done in the 15 mining divisions.  Through Thomas Jones, its ore buyer, the Lanyon Zinc Co., of Iola. Kansas, is investigating a proposition to establish a zinc smelter on the coast.  A 200 ounce gold brick was the result of 18 days' run at the Wilcox mill,  Ymir, when 250 tons of ore were crushed. In addition about a car of $45  per ton concentrates were produced.  I^ist week's Rossland ore shipments  were: Le Roi 3,000, Centre Star 1,-  620, War Eagle 1,140, I.e Roi No. 2  910, Velvet 100, Kootenay 340. Total  for the week 7,110 tons, and for the  year to date 163,757 tuns.  It is not doubted in Rossland that  recently an important discovery of payable ore was made on the 1,350-foot  level of the Le Roi mine. Official confirmation cannot be obtained, but something in that direction is expected at an  early date.
