"When we first  struck the ore in the raise we drifted  on it for i'i feet. Then wc returned  10 the raise and continued upward,  being still in ore and having 25 feet of  it thus far., How much more of it  there is I.do not know,"  Mr. Buck is naturally not a little  pleased at reaching this ore body, for  which he has been working all winter  and spring. " W. T. Smith, a stockholder in the War Eagle, had been  visiting the property of late every few  days, and predicted the strike at just  about the .point where it was made.  Assays from average samples of the  copper sulphide.ore have been made  this week, and the returns are not a  little pleasing to the War Eagle management. The samples gave $20 in  copper and $1.00 in gold.  Early this week Mr. Buck started  another air drill at work, in an old  pros[>ect shaft near the blacksmith  shop. Here also the men under  Foreman Duncanson are already working in,good ore.  The War Eagle people have put in  a big plant and have been steadily at  work for months since the plant was  started, confident that the surface indications would be more than proved  up with work. It is a matter of congratulation that the predictions are  being freely verified at this early day  in the history of the property's development.  CLOSINO OF PHOENIX SCHOOL.  Addresses   Were   Delivered by Two of The  Trustees.  The closing exercises of Phoenix  public school, were held on Thursday  afternoon. The program rendered by  the children consisted of songs and  choruses, dialogues and recitations and  all did their parts well. Mr. W. R.  Williams, secretary of the trustee board,  occupied the chair, and in a short  speech referred to the growth of Phoenix as shown in the school attendance.  He mentioned the fact that of the  pupils enrolled last fall some were now  married and had children of their own,  who would soon be attending, no doubt.  He congratulated Mr. Buckton on the  progress of the school in .'.spite of its  varied grades and large enrollment.  Mr. Rumberger one of the trustees,  presented the rolls of honor, to Esse  pocksteader for deportment; to Jay  Cramer for proficiency, and to George  Heidman for regular attendance. In  a few well chosen words, he congratulated the successful ones and urged all  to be djligent and to not lay aside  their books in vacation, but continue  so as to return to school prepared to  take their places in class.  Rev. Mr. Sutherland said .that the  only instructions he had received in regard to his speech was that it should  be short. He re-echoed the chairman's compliment to the teacher on  the progress of the school, and urged  the pupils not to stop at public school;  but to continue into higher schools  and college. He expressed the hope  that the province would soon have a  university of its own, and urged effort  toward securing that object. ,   . ��  After singing "God Save the Queen,"  the meeting broke up, and the children  will now enter on their well earned  playtime.  School is expected to resume about  the middle of August.  WILL USE 40 CARS  Constantly to Carry Away the  Ore.

At 11 a. m. today, according to  notice previously given, there will be  an election for school trustees, to take  the places of the three whose terms are  expiring, viz., W. R. Williams, George  Rumberger and Henry Heidman, who  have served since the school was  organized last October. Any British  citizen, or any freeholder or householder, of the age of 21 years, or the wives of  the same are entitled to vote. Trustees  must be British subjects. It is expected that at least two instructors will be  needed in the school when it reopens  in August.  Greenwood's city has tile must be  easy. Last Saturday morning four  prisoners bored their way out and  escaped. Their names are l\ Murphy  and J.

Graves, manager of the prop-,  erties owned in this and other camps  by the Miner-Graves syndicate, spent  last Sunday and Monday in Phoenix,  and gave tlie Pioneer man some interesting data in regard to large enterprises of which lie is the'head���and  in which every resident of the Boundary is more or less interested.  For several years the Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill companies have been  steadily plugging away at development  work, blocking out the immense ore  bodies, so that when shipments were  once started, they could be kept up  uninterruptedly. This has been done in  a most thorough and systematic manner,  under the direction of Wm. Yolen 'Williams. A few weeks ago stoping ore  was begun, and in a short time the  capacious ore bunkers were groaning  with over 8,000 tons of chalcopyrite.  In the meantime the management  has been stirring up the C. P. R. officials to get the various needed spurs,  sidetracks, etc., laid and ballasted.  But, "as is well known, large bodies  sometimes moves slowly, and in this  case the rule is proved. The delaysin  this work and in finishing the smelter  have been more annoying and vexatious  to the management of the properties  than to any one else. Happily, however, all this work is very close to  completion. The last rail on the smelter sidetracks has been laid ,and ballasted. 'I'he sidetracks at the Old  Ironsides and Knob Hill ore bunkers  are being put in. Last week the C.P.R.  sent up live ore cars, but as 40 had  been promised, and five were too few  to assist materially in getting the bins  emptied, they were not allowed to go  out. It would, take two or three  months' to "get rid of the ore now in the  bunkers at this rate���-and 'the Old  Ironsides does not propose to do business-on any such small scale. ,  Over 333 Tons Daily.  Mr. Graves asked the C. P..R... for  the use of 45 ore cars, and he was  promised 40. It is estimated that each  car holds 23 tons; that the 40 cars will  be made up into three trains, one of  which will be at the smelter, one at the  mines and one in transit daily. This  will mean an average shipment of 300  tons of ore daily as a starter, which  amount will shortly undoubtedly be increased. In handling this amount of  ore each day, economy is the first con  sideration, and until the sidetracks were  put in at the ore bins this could not be  done.  As stated in last week's Pioneer, the  bunkers were full of ore and so were  the drifts and stopes in the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill. In fact, it was  impossible for the men to work, and a  portion of the force was temporarily  laid off. It is estimated that twice as  much ore has been broken down as  now contained in the bunkers���or  a'oout 25,000 tons altogether. This is  not a bad showing-for mines that have  not yet begun shipping.  Smelter is Ready.  Mr. Graves stated that the Granby  smelter is all ready to do business to  the last detail, with the exception of  the completion of the dam. As the  smelter people wish to accumulate a  reserve stock of at least 35,000 tons,  and as the roasting can begin at any  time, there will be no more delay on  that account.  As a matter of fact, Mr. Graves also  stated that he fully expected the smelter  dam would be completed in two weeks.  The-water is now low enough to resume  work and it is being pushed. Unless  the water rises again���which is not  likely at this time of year���Mr. Graves  has no doubt whatever of the dam  being finished now very shortly, wiseacres to the contrary notwithstanding.  Finishing Granby Apartment House.  Last winter the lower floor only of  the Granby, the big apartment house,  erected for the use of the miners, was  finished and occupied. Plasterers and.  carpenters are now busy completing  the second and third stories, in anticipation of the largely increased force of  men soon to be put on. Manager  Hunter, who has charge, estimates  that, when the wcrk is all done he can  comfortably supply sleeping accommodations for 300 men. This is the num-  that Mr. Graves expects will be in the  employ of tlie associated companies in  which he is interested, by the latter  part of July.  Everything about the Granby is  first-class, 'i'he rooms are all plastered  and wainscotted, electric lighted and  before winter will be steam heated.  The plant for heating will be installed  this summer. Theie i.-. nothing, to  equal the Granhv in llritish Columbia j  The good work on the Granby is noj  confined to the inside, either. Surrounding the building, work has already  been .commenced qi\ seeding and in a  short time green lawns will be seen on  all sides.       ..        .  Taking it all in all, it is pretty well  settled that no mining concern in these  parts takes better care of its men than  does the management- of. the Miner-  Graves syndicate.  Mines of the Boundary.  The drift at the 100 foot level on the  Hartford, is now in over 100 foot.  Last'Tuesday 10 cars of ore went  to the Trail smelter over the Phoenix  branch.  '  The new 70 h. p. boiler and other  machinery for the Snowshoe, are expected to arrive in about two weeks.  'I'he Golden Eagle, on the North  Fork of Kettle river, has made a test  shipment of a car of ore to the Trail  .smelter.  Jay P. Graves, it is said, has sent a  representative to examine properties  near Bcaverton on the west fork of  Kettle river.  A correspondent at Grand .Forks  asserts that the Boundary ore shipments to the Trail smelter now run  about 1,000 tons weekly.  I'he Gold Drop recently made a  test shipment of a car of ore to the  Trail smelter. Supt. Easton says the  returns were all that he anticipated."  Early this week the work of getting  the water out of the shaft in the  Mountain View, Summit camp, -was  finished, and active work is now going on.  The galena ore found at the City of  Paris mine, Central camp, will be treated at the Trail smelter, as the Granby  smelter has no lead stack. One car  has already-beensent.  Two men are doing some surface  prospecting on the Great Hopes, Dead-  wood camp, preliminary to sinking a  new shaft. Work-Has also been resumed on the Marguerite, an adjoining  claim owned by the Quebec Mining  Co.  At the B. C. mine, in Summitcamp,  there are now about 80 men employed  of which 15 are ore sorters. Up to  date nearly 4,000 tons of ore have  been shipped to the Trail smelter. At  present shipping is at the rate of 50  tons daily, the capacity of the present  hoist,���.:.-���-,'���-���'������ _',.-������',��� ���.'-.- ���,-:.���.---.��� ������-.'-���   .-.,'.' .,;'������  ]).

Pree Gold in Wellington Camp.  No little excitement has been created  here by the remarkable showing of free  gold on the Iron Horse claim, one  mile north of the' Dewdney trail in  Wellington camp, says the Rossland  Miner. The pay streak occurs in, a  four-foot ledge and is from three to  four inches wide. The quartz is literally spattered-with gold, and the assays  run over $2,000 per ton.    At the hot-  j  torn of a i5;t'oot shaft.the pay stitakHs--^-^5^^-Sib-ti-d--i-nT?f^  widening slightly. 1 here are two copper-gold ledges running, parallel to the  central vein on which the. shaft is being sunk at the rate of a foot per day.  The property is owned by James and  Patsy Clark of Spokane, Henry Eliis  and Mrs. G. A. Fraser of Grand  Forks.  Phoenix is to have-a large office and  store building���and it will be erected at  once, on the corner of Old Ironsides  avenue and First street, by1 Jay P.  Graves and Wm. Yolen Williams.  This, fact was announced by Mr.  Graves when in I'hoenix Monday. ',���  The building will be two stories high  on Old Ironsides avenue atfd. there  stories on First street. It will contain  two large stores, 25x80 feet each, besides three stores on First street, just  above the Eastern Townships Bank.  The second story will have 13 office  rooms. The-cntire building will, be,  lighted by electricity, and' will,be first  class in every respect. The .architect  is.W.U. McPherson, of Grand Forks,  who will receive lenders up- to July  5th. Plans can be seen at the Old  Ironsides office, and bids will be iiv  from contractors-in Grand "Forks,.  Grenewood and Phoenix.  NEW CABINET COMPLETED.  Ad-  for the accommoi.  in mines.  alien o: men wor  County Court Session. .  His Honor, Judge Spinks, held  county court at Greenwood Tuesday  and Wednesday, there being some 75  cases to hear. As he could spend but  a little over a day, on account of appointments in other places, business  was quickly ��� dispatched. In fact,  many cases were adjourned to the Sej -  tember term on this account, working  a hardship on litigants interested. A  number of small cases were   disposed.  Mandel it Murphy, of I'hoenix obtained judgment against John Craig  for $54 and costs, for rental of a wagon.  One Gascoigne, arrested inOieen-  wood some time since lor an unmentionable crime, was given five years at  hard labor.  Ore Samples for Winnipeg Exposition.  1*,.

For seven years Mr. Wells was in business in Montreal, and in 1886 he came  to British Columbia and first entered  the provincial political arena in 1S98,  when at the general elections he was  elected to the legislature for North  East Kootenay as a supporter of the  Semlin government.  Hon. J. I). Prentice, provincial secretary and  minister  of educatioji   an  Englishman   by   birth,   sat   for    East  illooet during   the session   of   1895,  playing  an important part in the exciting scenes  incidental to the collapse of the Semlin  administration. At the recent elections  he was returned by a good majority.  Hon. Richard McBride, minister of  mines, a native son���and probably the  youngest who ever obtained political  prominence in British Columbia, was  born in New Westminster on December 15, 1870. He was called to the  bar in British Columbia in 1S92, at  that time being connected with the firm  of Corbould, McColl, Wilson it Campbell, practicing at New Westminster.  Since 1894 he has been practicing on  his own account, and at present is in  partnership with J. I). Kennedy at  New Westminster. In 1S96 he contested unsuccessfully the constituency  of New Westminster against Aula/  Morrison at the general lederal elections.

GOOD CALLED FOR  AND DELIVERED.  mi: v<q districts ignored.  By the appointment of Richard  McBride, o�� DeWdney, to the portfolio  of minister of mines, Pienuer IJuns-  muir lias apparently taken pains to  show his contempt for the important  niining sections of Kootenay and-Yale.  Theie are six members in the southeastern British Columbia minim* area,  and Sirely the premier could have  Jound one of these who could acquit  himself with credit and at the same  time be familiar and in close touch  ���with the rcquiremcnts"of the mineral  country.  It is just possible  that Mr.   Duns-  nniir offered the |x>sition to each one  of the sis referred to and   that it  was  - refused.    If so, this fact  has  not yet  been made public.    Hut one fact  has  been made painfully   apparent,   and  that is that the premier has selected a  man who from his previous record is  totally unfit to be minister of mines.  The position is one requiring peculiar  adaptability,   and   which   not   every  l.irmeror rancher can fill to satisfaction,  lie they ever so good men otherwise.  If, as given out, the ses,ion will be a  short one, and the cabinet is to be reconstructed at its close, the defects  be remedied. Rut as it is, it is  from being satisfactory to the members  of cither party wh'o live in mining  constituencies.  As will be noted in an article on  page 3, the voters of the Boundary  country, per se, cast 1,306 ballots at  the recent election. There weie 29  constituencies that polled a less number of votes, and there are 14 constituencies that had less than half ,tl��e  votes of the Boundary. Redistribution  at leastas far as Boundary is concerned,  should be an emergency measure in  the next legislature. And the Boundary should have at least two seats.  WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.
