VBJfTfSi  PREPARING FOR  ORE SHIPMENTS  From the Brooklyn and Stem-  winder Dumps.  WHERE ARE SOME 8,000 IONS OF ORE  Men Here lo Lay Sled on Ihe Already Completed Gride lo Those Mines���Ore does  lo Boundiry Creek'Smellers.  It appears to be reasonably certain  that un era cf activity will shortly prevail on the south side of the city, and  Ihe. ore on the Brooklyn and ''St em win  der dumps,, in the. neighborhood of  8,000 tons,, will, ere long, be taken to  the smelters for treatment. It is also  believed by those in a position to know,  that the mere shipment of the ore on  these dumps will not he the end of  operations at these mines, as the smelters are desirous of getting a steady supply of this particular class of ore.  It is an open secret that the Brooklyn and Stemwinder ores will average  up rather better than the ore from any  other mines in this camp. This'-was'  the gist of the published statement by  Drr E, R. LeDoux, the eminent New  York copper expert, who visited this  camp last year. Jt is als<i pretty well  known.that these mines have ore now  in sight that will, when mined and  shipped to the smelter*, net the owners something between $750,000 and  $1,000,000 ��� which means that the  present value of the'ore,"at the present  price of copper, is about double those  figures.  The shipments-of these ores is understood to be a commercial test on a  large scale, the mines and dumps having been repeatedly sampled most  thoroughly in the past. Should it 'result satisfactory,'of which there is no  doubt, it will probably mean the reopening of this rich group of mines on  an extensive scale.  The extra gang of the C. 1'. R.,' now  here, came for the express purpose of  laying the rest of the spurs to these  mines, and are understood to lie waiting only for material to proceed with  the work.  EACH WON A HOSE REEL RACE.  '"���������_- ;'''' '  Increased  Interest la   tne  Fire   Brigade of  Phoenix.  Never, since the organization of the  Phoenix fire brigade, has there been as  much interest shown in. the affairs of  the department as at present. ���Very-  little practice was had with the two  hose carts provided by the city, up to  a month ago. Latferly, however,  things have changed, and both companies have been .doing no small  amount of practicing; the result being  that some creditable records were made,  considering the heavy cart's on hand  for practice. Both trie tipper and lower town hose companies had frequent  runs, and made excellent showings;  This interest culminated in a matched race, a wet test, which was pulled  off Tuesday .evening on Knob Hill  axenue, the challengers being the No.  2 or upper town team] Time keepers  and judges were appointed, and the  men lined up in exeenent form. The  No. 2 company werevslow in getting  water, the time being "32^ seconds,  the No. 1 company doing better by the  time of 28 seconds "flat. The next  evening a hub and hub race took place  over the same course', and considerable  money changed hands over the result,  when the tables were turned. In this  race the No. 2 company redeemed  themselves^ winning.jjy about five feet,  the time being 13 seconds. This racing was all with the slieayy. carts and  200 feet of hose.      , . '"  From the two, companies a team will  Deselected to. go to.''Grand Forks on  Dominion Pay, and His believed that  they w|l] be able to give a good account  of themselves,  1,000 TONS DAILY  ONCE MORE  Boundary Mining; Notes.

THREE,TOURIST PARTIES COMING.  Only Seven Weeks to Register.  An extra of the Provincial Gazette  was issued Tuesday containing a proclamation fixing the date for holding the  courts of revision throughout the. prov,  ince.  These courts of revision shall be held  on August 31 st. After August 14th.no  applications will be entered on the  present lists now in course of preparation. Registration is lo be suspended  from August 14th to August 31st. On  the latter date all objections against the  retention of any names on the lists will  be heard and disposed of.  This proclamation, therefore, allows  a little over seven weeks in ' which to  register. The revised lists .will not be  ready until considerably over two  months.  L0QL JOTTINGS  ���**-*��.�����**�����**�����������*�����������  W. R. Williams, of the Dominion  Copper Co., visited Nelson and North-  port early this week.  Mrs. F. W, Hart, from Campbell-  ville, Ont��� arrived in the city Monday,  and will make her home here.  For sale, Smith-Premier No. 1 typewriter in good condition at reasonable  price.    Apply at Pioneer office.  Elmer D. Hall and A. I). Hill, both  formerly connected with the Pioneer,  are now employed in a job office at  Whatcom, Wash.  Joe Trombley has the contract for  clearing the brush from the pole line  right of way to the Snowshoe mine  from the sub-station.  The C. P. R. is making special passenger rates to all points east. J. G.  Clark, the local agent, will be pleased  to give full particulars^  Smith Curtis made a flying trip to  Eholt last Monday to look after the  affairs of the Oro Denoro mine before  leaving on a trip to the east.  Since the largest building in town,  the new compressor house of the Granby mines, received its coat of paint, it  presents a greatly improved appearance.  The city council of Grand Forks are  much divided over paying themselves  salaries, with a possible deficit in municipal finances staring them in the face.  Nurse Fraser, of the Phoenix General Hospital staff, is expected to return  next week from a six weeks' vacation,  after which Miss Johnston, the matron,  will probably take a vacation.  Unconfirmed rumors ate to the effect  that the Great Northern has postponed  the building of its spur to Phoenix for  a time. Nevertheless, C. A. DesBrisay,  the right of way agent, continues to  make his trips to Phoenix. He came  in Thursday of this week again.  All From Old Country-Will Vl.lt the Boundary Mines.  During the summer ;and fall there  will be no less than .three prominent  parties of tourists taking in the sights  of Canada, who will, in the course of  their itineraries, look over the big mines  and smelters of the Boundary country.  One of these is a party of important  newspaper men from England, another  is the, Parliamentary-party,;while the  third, and perhaps largest, is the British Commercial party, who after the  meeting of the Chambers of Commerce  of the Empire, at Montreal in August,  will devote a, month or two to the rest  of Canada.  The latter will travel in two sections  of fifty each, the first of which will  leave Revelstoke at 8 a. m. Sunday,  September 13th, going through to Rossland that night, leaving Rossland at 2  p. m. by special train Monday for  Greenwood, arriving there , that same  evening. Early Tuesday, September  25, they leave Greenwood by train for  Phoenix, where they will go through  the mines, proceeding that afternoon  to Grand Forks and seeing the smelter  there. The second party will reach  Phoenix the next day.  Buying Really and Bulld'ns.  ��� George Hueston, an employee of the  Granby Co., has recently invested in  two residence lots, one each in the upper and lower parts of the city. He purchased the house owned formerly by  Mrs. W. M. Russell, located on Brooklyn avenue, which is improved with a  house. The other lot secured by him  is located on Second street, facing the  Granby cottages. The lumber for a  modern six room residence has already  been ordered, and the contract let for  the erection of the same. It will be  used for renting purposes when completed.  'John Miller this week had work  started on the erection of a commodious residence on his lot on upper Old  Ironsides avenue, not far from the  depot.           Were Cited to Appear.  A few days ago W. D. Parker and J.  H. Macaulay were cited to appear before  W. G. McMynn, of Greenwood, on a  charge of polluting the water of Twin  creek, from which the city of Greenwood secures its aqua pura supply.  After hearing the case they were order  ed to remove certain piles of manure  from the vicinity of the creek, and to  use other precautions to prevent the pollution of that stream. This week they  have been complying with these directions.        ^   Phoenix vs. Danville.  Last Sunday the Danville (Nelson,  Wash.) base ball club, played a game  on the Phoenix diamond with the  local team, there being a large number  of spectators. During' the ninth inning, the score stood, Phoenix 5, Danville S, with Phoenix at the bat and two  men on b,ascs. At this point there was  a dispute, and the visitors refused to  continue the game, therely forfeiting it.  J-ast Monday morning the Granby  smelter blew in another furnace, mak-  three of the battery of four thai are now  in operation. The company was enabled to do this because of the arrival  of heavy shipments of coke from Fairfax, Washington, which have been ordered for some weeks. In addition to  this the shipments of Crow's Nest coke  are coming in a little more freely now,  and it is hoped that they will soon increase so that the full battery of four  furnaces can be placed in operation  simultaneously. This would once  more mean daily shipments of 1,600  tons of ore from this camp. As it is,  the shipments now run 36 cars, or over  7,000 tons each 24 hours.   ....  The Greenwood smelter is still operating two furnaces, and the Sunset  smelter at Boundary Falls one, making  ft total of six furnaces: in the three  Boundary smelters. In another few-  weeks the Granby smelter'will have  two more furnaces ready for. blowing  in, making their battery six in all, with  a capacity of 2,300 tons daily.  NOTED SOCIALIST LECTURER.  Everything comfortable and home^  like at the Cottage hotel, Jack Bower-  man, proprietor.  Spoke at Miners'   Union Hall Monday and  Tuesday.  Benjamin F. Wilson, formerly a  Methodist minister, whose home is in  California, arrived in the city last Saturday, and on both Monday and Tuesday evenings of this week lectured on  Socialism at Miners' Union hall. His  audience the second evening was larger than the first, the hall being well  filled, a number of ladies also being  present.  Mr. Wilson is a most interesting  talker, and has the rare faculty of keeping his audience interested from the  start to the very end. It is doubtful  if a better speaker ever appeared in  ���Phoenix, or one more able to hold  the attention of his hearers throughout,  even though some of them differed  with his views.  The speaker went into the cause of  socialism from the beginning, and gave  a clear conception of what it is and  what it proposes to do for the working-  man of the world through the ballot  box. He spoke fast, making the most  of his time, so as not to weary the listeners, and frequently punctuated his  argument with anecdotes that illustrated his meaning to a nicety. He paid  his compliments to the two old parties,  handling them and their theories without gloves, and holding them up to  ridicule. The socialists of Phoenix  believe that Mr. Wilson did the cause  no little good by his lectures here. He  will appear again during the political  campaign just now beginning.  The Oro Denoro has contracted to  ship to the Sunset smelter.  The" Elkhorn, near the Providence,  is shipping a couple of cars of ore.   '  Shipments of ore from the Humming Bird, on the North Fork, are  shortly to be resumed to the Granby  smelter.'  'The third furnace of the Sunset  smelter, completed for some months at  Spokane, is to be brought in and installed at an early date.  ���.W.'T. Smith und J. D. Sword have  seven men at work on the Bell, near  Beaverdell, on the West Fork, which  claim they have under bond.  An important strike of free gold was  made on the E. Pluribus Unum last  week, and this week a car of ore is being shipped to the Trail smelter.  The Snowshoe mine is piling up a  goodly tonnage again this, week, the  shipments equalling those of last week,  which were the largest so far in the  history of the mine.  Mark F. Madden, of Chicago, president of the Providence Mining Co., returned to Chicago Saturday, after securing an interest iti the Gold Finch,  another high grade property.  W. S. Keith has taken a lease and  bond on the Ruby claim at Boundary  Falls, from which small shipments were  made two years ago. Some $10,006  has already been spent on the property.  This week the 150 h. p. electric  hoist was used at the , Snowshoe mine  for the first time, and worked smoothly. This is the second mine in the  Boundary to which Cascade power is  being furnished.  SHOOTING OVER  FOR A TIME  Young Ideas Will Now Have  Vacation.  PUBLIC SCHOOL CLOSED YESTERDAY  Parents and Frlendi a I the Final Exerclsei  ���List of Promotions *nd Rolf�� of Honor  Presented.  Phoenix Man Goes Higher.  W, L. Ge'rnmine, who has been a  resident of this camp for nearly four  years, and has been in charge of the  office work of the Hunter-Kendriek Co.  for that time, has accepted a position  as general manager of the Russel-L'iw-  Caullield Co., of Greenwood, and will  enter upon his new duties about the  middle of next month. It is understood that W. M.'liiw will retire from  the active management of that concern.  Mr. Germaine has made many friends  in Phoenix, who while they regret his  departure, are congratulating him on  the step up higher which he will   thus  take.   Wedding at Hartford Junction.  For the first time in the history of  that settlement a wedding occurred last  Tuesday at Hartford Junction. The  contracting parties were Frank Mullin-  er, baggage agent with the C. P. R. at  Eholt, and NHss Ethel Barnard, daughter of Mrs. W. T. Buker, of the Junction. The ceremony was solemnized  by Rev. V.'M. Purely, pastor of the  Presbyterian church of Phoenix* Geo.  E. Day was the best man, and Miss  Hawkins was bridesmaid. Nearly all  the residents of Hartford Junction were  present. The newly married couple  have settled down at housekeeping at  Eholt.          J. W. Astley, superintendent of the  Snowshoe mine, returned from a  month's visit to the coast, much benefited in health. Mrs. Astley, who has  spent several weeks at Victoria, also  returned,  The eleclrie pump ordered from the  [enckes Machine.

It is reported that W.'W.B. Mclnnes  will run for Alberni.  Greenwood riding's liberal convention has been set for July 17th.  S. S. Taylor, the solicitor, has re-,  ceived the nomination of the liberals  in Nelson riding.  The conservatives of Cranbrook have  nominated Thomas Cavin, a well known  C. P. R. conductor.  Hon. R. F.Green, minister of mines,  arrived in the city yesterday, on a flying trip through the Boundary.  It is reported that Hon. Charles  Mackintosh will be the conservative  candidate in Rossland.  Blanks for the registration of voters  can be had of the secretaries of the political parties, or at the office of the  Pioneer.  W. H. P. Clement, of Grand Forks,  came up Thursday to attend the meeting of the local liberal association the  same evening. He is spoken of as a  probable candidate.  John Houston has announced him"  self as a candidate for re-election in  Nelson, this time on the straight conservative ticket, subject to the wishes  of a convention.  The government has appointed S.R.  Almond, of Grand Forks, collector of  votes for Grand Forks riding, in place  of W. R. McMynn, of Greenwood, who  was originally announced.  Monday evening a committee oj  three, chosen at last Friday's meeting  of the Phoenix Trades and Labor Council, met a similar committee from  Grand Forks, to arrange for a labor  convention in this riding in the near  future.  Last week the Grand Forks Conservative-Liberal Association elected the  following officers at a well attended  meeting: Hon. president, H.S.Cayley:  president, Geo. A. Fraser; first vice1  president, N. McLellan; second 'vice-  president, E. Spragget; treasurer, G.M.  Fripp.; secretary, A. C. Sutton; executive committee, W. Dinsmore, Capt.  Desbrowe, John Temple, E. Miller,  J.May. John Hutchinson, M.I). White,  Jeff Davis, Geo. Urlin, H..C. Hanning-  ton, T. New by and H. N. Galer. Over  seventy members were present.  Yesterday the public school closed  for the session, the midsummer exercises and examinations taking place in  both divisions. Many parents and  friends were present and congratulated  Geo. D. Turner, the principal, and Miss  Curry; his assistant, on the excellent  results obtained with pupils during the  scholastic year. Next week Mr. Turner goes to New Westminster to spend  the holidays, and Miss Curry wi/1 visit  at her old home in Vancouver,- -  Prooolloo List���Senior Division.  In the.Senior.

In a recent issue  the  Fernie Free  Press, in an  article a column and a  half long, made an attempt to reply to  several criticisms  that  have  recently  been made by a number of journals in  the Kootenays and Boundary, and especially by the Rossland  Miner, that  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., is not  doing all in its power  to furnish  the  necessary coke to keep British Columbia smelters running at full  capacity.  The Free Press says that it interviewed  John H. Tonkin, the manager  of the  company, before the article was printed; therefore the story,  to all. intents  and purposes, is official.  The burden of the song is that the  present coke shortage is the fault of  the C. P. R.���pure and simple; that  James J. Hill does not own a control  in the coal company, and that no coke  whatever has been shipped to the  Americal side. Then in the same issue  of the Free Press we are told how many  thousands of tons of coal have been  mined at the three collieries the previous month, a creditable record, by the  way.  But it is quite noticeable that the figures of the coke production and shipment are not published in the Free  Press or anywhere else that we know  of. These interesting statistics are  studiously withheld., If a million tons  of coal are mined monthly it does not  matter to the quartz districts if the coal  is not manufactured into coke, and delivered to our smelters. This is the  point upon which it would be more  than interesting to throw a little light,  once in a while. Coke is what is wanted most, and coke is what our smelters  must have and will have, sooner or  later. If the Crow's Nest outfit con  tinues to demonstrate its inability to  supply the commodity, it must be had  elsewhere, and will be���even though it  cannot be had just at present.  How many tons of coke were burned in the month of May, and where  was it shipped to ?  It is fair'to presume that the annual  report of the minister of mines is at  last distributed to a breathless public.  What matters it to the officials who  take six or eight months to get it out  that it is ancient history by the time it  is in hand���it made a good job for the  government printing office, to which it  is a credit mechanically. It is to be  hoped that the McBride government  will put a stop to this farce of having  reiwrts issued many months late. Possibly a typesetting machine or two in  the government office ��� the same as  those used at Ottawa ��� would help  matters to some extent. At any rate  the government office would not be behind the times in facilities.  The   opposition   press  is  charging  Premier McBride with making a deal  with the C. P. R., and thereby keeping  prospectors off the two coveted blocks  of coal lands in East Kootenay and at  the same time securing sinews  of war  for election  purposes.     The  reply is  made that, as the C.P.R. has announced its intention to fight for the lands in  question through the courts,  it  would  be bad policy to deal with these blocks  till the question  of title  is judicially  settled.    To a man up a tree it would  seem that Premier McBride is  right,  notwithstanding the so-called righteous  indignation   that   this   decision    has  brought out. -  B. C MINING  *�����������������(����**>��� *  It is whispered around that it is the  desire of the Phoenix liberals not to  put a ticket in the field for the coming  election in this riding, but that this suggestion is not taken kindly at Grand  Forks, where most of the voters live.  Should this be acted upon, however, it  will leave it a straight contest between  the conservatives and the labor party.  DIRT DID NOT FLY.  Recently the editor of the Pioneer  published an interview with a gentleman from Spokane, to the effect that  within three weeks dirt would be flying on the Phoenix branch of the Great  Northern railway into the Boundary.  The gentleman in question claimed to  have received the information direct  from Patrick Welch, the well known  contractor, who is to do the work of  construction when the dirt does begin  to move,  Evidently, our informant was mistaken, for as yet there has been no  definite move for acturl construction  further than the completion of all surveys and the actual securing of the  major part of the right of way from  Grand Forks to Phoenix. When con  struction will be undertaken is not  ' given out, and it seems probable that  no one desides James J. Hill himself  knows.  In the meantime all kinds of speculations are rife as to the reason for the  delay in this work, which will surely be  undertaken some time in the near  future. Some think it is because no  contract for tonnage has been entered  into with the mining companies,or that  lack of adequate coke for our smelters  It is the proper thing now to register  your vote. New lists are being made  up all over the province and new collectors appointed. It matters not  whether your name was on the lists  before or not, a new registration is absolutely necessary to exercise the franchise.  The recent forty-fourth annual statement of the Eastern Townships Bank,  as published in these columns last week,  shows that concern to be one of the  solid institutions of Canada, and that  it was never in as prosperous a condition as it is today.  Slocan mines have shipped 6,400  tons of ore this year. :','  The Rambler is shipping heavily to  the San Francisco smelter.  The unwatering of the Nickel Plate  at Rossland has been started.  The Payne expects to have its new  zinc works in operation by the 15th-of  July.  The Quilp mine at Republic has shipped 1,000 tons of ore to the Granby  smelter in the last month.  Owing to light snows last winter and  an early spring, this season in the Cariboo placer country will be shorter than  usual.  Owing to the damage caused by the  floods, the Slocan Star had to construct  a new road from Slocan to its concentrator.  Ore carrying $52 in gold and netting  the company handsome returns lias  been shipped from the Velvet mine to  the Northport smelter'recently.  On account of the coke shortage the  Trail smelter has been forced to close  the hand<roasters. It is hoped to start  them again in another month or six  weeks.  Another stampede for coal lands in  or near the Flathead country, East  Kootenay, is now on. As far as can  be learned, however, no licenses are  being issued.  Rossland ore shipments for last week  were LeRoi. 4,000; Centre Star, 1,680;  War Eagle, 1,320; Kootenay, 290; Le  Roi N0.2, 350; Velvet, 100; Giant.,30;  total, 7,770; total for year to date, 171,-  527 tons.

T.,H. Rae, a well known mining operator, formerly of Ressland, with over  ten years' experience, arrived here this  week from Chicago, says the Grand  Forks News-Gazette. Mr. Rae recently organized a company in Chicago for  the purpose of operating, the JJcttsand  Hesperus, two well known claims on  Hardy mountain, about four miles from  this city; The newcorporation, which  is capitalized at one million dollars in  shares of the par value of one dollar,  will start development work immediately.  The officers are wealthy business  men of the Windy city. The list is as  follows: President, Gifts', J. McGee;  vice-president; M.S. Mossier;treasurer,  Peter li. Fridkyn; secretary, S.P. Bran-  nan; directors, G. \V. Stewart and T.  H. Rae. The company has ample  funds in the treasury,  President McGee will arrive here  shortly to inspect the property, which  has always been regarded as one of the  most promising propositions in Wellington camp. About 200 feet of crosscuts and shaft work, performed by( the  former owners, has opened up some  rich bodies of sulphide ore. Since his  arrival here Afr. Rae lias visited the  property twice for the purpose of securing samples. Two assays made at the  Granby smelter this week gave returns  of $17.36 and $19.46 in gold and copper, the latter values predominating.  Mr. Rae will personally direct the  development work, which, at the outset, will consist of surface stripping with  the view to opening up a glory hole  similar to those at the Granby and  Snowshoe mines. It is his intention  to make a smelter test at an early date.  The advent of Chicago capital into this  section will be heartily welcomed. The  new company is the Hesperus Gold &  Copper Mines Co,  To Exercise Franchise Rvery Ode  Register An;w. ��� ,  For the information of the general  public, it is explained that the qualification consists of declaring that the applicant is of the male sex, 21 years old,  has resided for six months in the province, and one montli, in;the district immediately previous to the date of making application.

If the "Slater Shoe" had not proven to  wearers its claims to comfort how long could  it have remained on the market, no matter how  loudly or skillfully it might have been advertised?
