Raker, ihe siipeiiniehdent for  Porter Bros,, the  railway  contractors,  who have entered into a contract with  the Granby C >. for taking out and ship  ping of. 100,0so tons of ere  from the  surface workings of the  Knob   Hill  mine, arrived in the city   Wednesday,  and is preparing to start the preliminary work in a lew days. This will consist very largjly  of stripping  on the  other side of the Knob Hill claim,  so  as to expose the gigantic ore body, and  it will probably take considerable time  to do this.    A wire tram will   first   be  erected to cany off the surface  waste,  the non-arrivil of this wire tope from  the east havi.ig delayed the  beginning  of operations. -r    '  Last Saturday the paraphernalia,  consisting of steam shovel, .derricks,  and other m, u-hmery and tools used  fpr this pii-|>ose, arrived in Grand  Forks, and has been expected here  daily. As s >on as it gets there Mr.  Baker will start a gang of men at work.  It is understood that if Porter Bros.,  who have hid a long experience in contracting, eventually take out this 100,-  000 tons of ore to the satisfaction of  the company, a further contract for 5,-  000,000 tons will at once be made. It  is thus quite evident that the firm is  not doing business on"a small'scale.'  TROUBLES OF IjOT 4IR L|MfE.  Ugly Charges Agilfttt Aulitut Monger  Mofrii,  The Grand Forks and Republic  railway, which.is known as the Kettle  Valley Line, and locally as the "Hot  Air" line, seems to be having no end  of troubles, not only with the elem:nts,  which washed out bridges and road  bed and swallowed up a locomotive  for a lime, but with the officials of the  company itself. '  Some  time ago  the 'audjlor,   Mr.  Haywood, and the freight agent,   Mr.;  Birbeck, went avva,y, gnd it'�� said they  were short  jn  th^r accau,nt��  several  .thousands, ctf dollars.    Jt js   notable  that seemingly no effort has been made  to arrest them, ��� A few days ago W; C.  Morris,  the Republic  attorney,   who  was assistant manager under Tracy W.  Holland, went to Spokane* and has not  seen fit to return.    It is now said that  Mr; Morris saw to it that at least. his  very liberal allowance for expenses was  I paid before he left, and that he knows  several things.    A detective has  been  working on the entire case in  Grand  Forks-Tor some weeks, and  could  tel-  some interesting facts if so inclined,  involving more than these mentioned.  It is understood that the 43   miles  of railwav has cost about $800,000  so  far, and that it will take at least $200,-  000 more to. put it in first-lass shape.  The money for construction  was furnished by the   Dominion   Permanent  Trust Co., of Torp,n|p.    A,l(h,ou,gh the  "last spike" was   driven in .Republic  several   miles from,  the railhead  on  April jath, the ljn�� is far  from  being  completed, and by the time it is really  ready for business, will have the finely  constructed parallel  line of James J.

WHOLE WORLD IS SHOCKED OYER IT  Beginning last week, under an agreement with the Sunset smelter, at Boundary Falls, the Snowshoe  mine  has  been shipping regularly  four cars of  ore daily, or about 120 tons.     More  ore could easily be furnished, if the  smelter could handle it.   This ore is  being taken from the surface workings  of the mine, where there are estimated  to be many thousands of tons of ore of  a good grade.    Shipments from this  part of the property will be kept up indefinitely,' it is understood.  Progress in getting" things in shape  for the r^ew. air compressor i's being  made, the work of laying the foundations for the big machine having been  completed, a.nd. the bricking in of the  two So horse power boilers being also  virtually done. The timbers for the  new compressor house, to be 40x86  feet in size, are now in hand, and the  work of erection will probably be started next week. No lime is being lost  in getting the new machinery in operating order at the earliest possible  date.  The new main shaft has now reached a depth of over 275 feet,���snd will  be continued to thp 300, foot level. At  the same tirne the shaft, which is on  an incline, is being permanently timbered,--When everything-:isMn-shape  for ore extraction, skips will be used  for .this purpose. -There are now 70  men on the payroll of the mine.

Water is still being kept out of the  Winnipeg mine with the improvised  machinery, pending' a decision ns to  intuit operations of the property.  Woik ou clearing the site of the  new 60 drill air compressor, ordered a  short time .igo iiy the Granby Co. from  the Canadian Rand Drill Co., for use  in the Phoenix mines, has been commenced.  For the fust six months of 1902,  Boundary mines have ship|>ed over  250,000 tons of ore, and Boundary  smelters have reduced about the sime  amount.  Theie is no change'in the coke sit  uatioir. Supplies are expected to be  received on or about the first of July  from the Ciow's nest ovens, and as the  Granby smelter will close two or three  days next week, coke is expected toai-  rive by tne time the furnaces are blown  in.

Another game will be played in Greenwood tomorrow.  In addition to this the Phoenix club  Tuesday afternoon the University of I will play at Grand Forks on Dominion  California {Berkeley)  base  ball  team   Day; ^t w,hie.h time it ts expected  that  defeated  the  Grand Forks nine by ^{<w ^^ {Tom as  many   dififerent  TeiU on Boundary Ore'Have Proved Very  Satisfactory.  The new Elmore process of oil concentration of ores appears, says the  Victqija Colonist, judging from recent  numerous tests, to piomise great things.  Tests made on the low-grade ore ol  one of the Rossland mines gave the  following results : The concentrates  by the oil process contained 6.08 per^  cent ofcopperj while concentration by  water gave only 2.6 per cent, the silver and gold contents being proportionately higher and the tailings showing much higher lecovery in the case  ol the oil than by the water concentration.  Preliminary tests by this process of  ore from the Snowshoe mine,; Boundary districts, have also proved satisfactory, and it is very probable that  several Elmore plants will ere long be  in operation in the low grade camps of  the province.  Old Little Business.  Wednesday evening's meeting of the  city council was not productive of much  business, it. ^ejng' largely routine.  Several small accounts were presented  and ordered p^id.

It  is his first vacation in two years, and  he will be gone about ten days.  Anthony J.

The verdict of the coroner's jury in  the inepjest upon the Fernie disaster  has been returned, after several hours  deliberation. The finding is against  the company and states that the deaths  were caused by the abundance of coal  dust.  The verdict recommended that the  government enforce a system for the  protection of the   miners,   that   it   ex  place tlytt is none too good to practice elude powder and   provide more effi  on, but jt is the intention  to enlarge)cient protection,  it, if possible,  and  get   it  in  better  shape.    Last Sunday two local nines  played a match at the home grounds.  Beat Olj fys Assailants.  Chas.

He w,as returning from the California  mine, near Republic, to Phoenix, when  he was set on by two men on the other J  aido of the line. Sandberg is a powerful fellow, and managed to beat off his  assailants, after receiving some bad  biuises. He came to his cabin at  Hartford Junction, and a local physician dressed his wounds  Race Horses at Qrand Forks.  As the Pioneer goes to press, word  is received from Grand Forks that a  large number Of horses have arrived to  take part in next week's races. Animals  have already got there from Colfax,  Republic, Spokane, Calgary, Rossland  and other places, including neatly all  the well known running and trotting  horses, as well as many local horses  and Dr. M., the guideless pacing wonder. The meet will undoubtedly be  the most exciting ever held in these  part.  London, June 24.���With dramatic  suddenness the king has been stricken  down upon the eve of his coronation.  Tonight he lies in a ciitical condition.  In spite of the intensity of this  dia-  twttic intenuption the lower elements  of London are "mafficking" through  the flag-decked   streets  and a poition  of society   in coronation  gowns  and  jewels has gathered at what is called'  [ a gala coronation dinner at one of the  fashionable hotels.  Even at the gates of Buckingham  palace within which the ablest surgeons and physicians constantly le-  mainin the hope of saving the sovereign's life, the tooting of horns and the"  sound of other revelry can be plainly  heard. That slim gathering . which  still remains beneath the flaring palace  'lights is now myre bereft on celebration than sympathizing.  They seem to have no conception of.  the gravity of King Edward's condition. The thinking portion of the nation has gone home numbed by the  events which the day has brought forth.  " Operation   Successful.  London, June 24.���1:40 p. m.���  The coronation is postponed indefinitely." , King Edward is suffering from  from peiityphlitis. His condition on  Saturday was so satisfactory that it was  hoped that with care his majesty would  be able to go through the ceiemony.  On Monday evening a recrudescense  became manifest, rendering a surgical  operation necessary today.  2 p. in.��� The  opeiation   on   King  Edward was successfully performed at  2 o'clock.   The king did noi lose consciousness and is now asleep.  Notice of Postponement.  A brief notice  has been   published  in the Gazette as the result of which  the entire state,  social  and   business-','  arrangements throughout the country  are paralyzed.     The order  is  dated  from   the  earl   marshal's   office  and  reads :   "  "I have to announce that the solemnity of the coronation of their majesties, King Edward  VII.   and  Queen,  Alexandra, is postponed from the 26th  to a date hereafter to be; determined. "  The best   informed   opinion   places  the date of the coronation   in . about  three '.months'   time,   provided   King  Edward   progresses well in the   meantime.  G. C.Hodge, district manager of  the V. & N. Telephone Co., from, ^el-  son, was in the cjty Saturday, on a trip  of inspection.  STRIKE W FERNIE  AH the miners in the Ciow's  Nest coal mines at Fernie went  out on strike Thursday, because  of�� regulation by the hew manager, Mr. Tonkin, which practically adds half an hour more to"  each shift without extra pcy.  The miners' union at Fernie b,as .  issued a manifesto {a. \foe public  ex.P.la|n.ing ihe situation. At a  special meeting this decision was  arrived at by a unanimous vote.  \a Eijltor In Contempt.  A dispatch from Victoria states that  W. ]VIicAdairns, editor of the Sandon  Paystreak, has been summoned by the  Full Court to appear before it in Victoria on July ?nd, on a charge of contempt of court. This arrises out of a  statement made in the Paystreak that  J. F. Clark of Rossland, was unable to  get his case for a commission, against  J. Frank Collom, for the sale of the  Arlington mines, before the courts,  owing to Collum's "pull."  Debs Speaks Next Wednesday Evening  Eugene V.   Debs,   the   well   known  labor leader, will be in  the   Boundary  next week, and   will   make   three   ad-  drcsses,on each in Grand l''oiks,jGreen-  wood and Phoenix.     He,   was at- first  billed for Tuesday night here, but that  has been changed 10  Wednesday   evening at Miners' Union Hall.   Mi. Debs  is said to be a good talker, and an enthusiast in  regard   to   the   new   labor  party.

One inconvenience   that   business  men of Phoenix have had to put up  with to the present time,  is the total  lack of any soit of custom facilities  in  this city.    When the  town was little  more than a postoffice,  and the men  .from a few scattered  unproved  pros-  , pects receiving their mail here, it  was  hardly necessary that conveniences of  this kind should be afforded. But now  the case is entirely  different.     Mines  of known worth and wealth are being  worked in this vicinity on an extensive  iscale���almost in the city itself���large  numbers of men are employed, many  merchants are located here, and the  lack of a customs office is often  felt.  No place of twice the size of Phoenix  contributed as much in freight tolls to  the C. P. R. in 1901 as did Phoenix.  It has nothing to do with the case  that offices of this kind are situated at  Grand  Forks   and   Greenwood,  not  many miles away.    It is right here in  Phoenix that Phoenix merchants need  the office refeired to, and it is right  here thai they are put to untold inconvenience because Phoenix has so  , long been overlooked in this regard. If  nothing better could be done, an offi  cer could  be sent here say twice or  even once a week, and clear such goods  as have ai rived in bond.    The C P.R.  now has a place specially arranged for  this purpose, and it should be put to  use.    It would cost the government  but little, and be a great boon to bus-  ness men here.  As a sample of how the present system works, cases are known where duty  ha�� been paid foi two or three days to  a week or'ten days at a time repeatedly, and yet the goods did not arrive  from Grand Forks.    This has not happened once or twice,  but a number of  times.    We do not claim to know exactly wheie the fault lies in such cases,  but they,occui not infrequently,  and  cause much   vexation  and  trouble to  importers.    If we had a customs office  heie, all this could be done away with.  The subject is one that should   be  agitated till the demand is met.    The  expense would be small, and the convenience gTeat.     In fact, it would be  an excellent matter for the board'of  trade to take up and not let up on till  something was done.  New coal fields cannot be>put into  a productive stage too soon for the  Boundary mining and smelting indus-  tiy. The leceiit enforced shoitageof  coke' supply fiom Fernie, the only  available souice, is showing us just ho��  serious such a situation may 'become.  Fortunately, in this case, it wilt not  last long.  B. C. MINING NOTES  C.

Claimed Ibal RSO Cod lie Saved -Prom Flie  Dollar Ore.  A new ore treating proceis has just  been perfected by John  Stovekin, of  Florence, Colo.; which !e says will revolutionize the -milling of thiee-fouiths  of the Cripple Creek ores; It is a.1 agitation process, and roasting, concentia  tion and amalgamation are foreign  to  the new patent.    Mr.  Stovekin  has  been working on  the invention ; i��u-  several years, but only Recently  conceived the, features that he says made'  the system practicable.  By the Stovekin system, it is claimed, ore carrying $5  in,,gold  can  be  treated at a profit, and of this amount  $4.50 can be saved.    The 50 cent  loss is not in the agitation but  in tin  mud or tailings,    Higher grade oie  can.be treated at a greater profit than  $5 ore,'-The system is peculiailyadnpi  ed to iron ore;  in fuel, some  iron  is  necessary beforethe treatment 'ran save  the values.   It differs from other cyanide systems in that the oie is ground  to a v.ry fine pulp by a ctusher and ii  f then passes into the different  barrels  Mr. Stovekin claims that the saving in  the treatment charges is due to tbcnb  sence of the roasting process and  the  saving in coal lessens the cost of treatment.    Under ordinary conditions, a  ton of $5 ore can be treated, he says,  for $��.���'..  Mr. Stovekin is patenting some  ground on the Middle Beaver, on the  Short Line Railway, where there is a  300-horse-power stream. It is his intention to build a mill there and instal  the agitating process.   ,  Caws by an  Old Jackdaw  ' Pond < f the ��j��-ciiliitlv height  Tliillier I .wine; my airy ll!Klit,'  A no tlii-ijcv won f\y h -,. s  The Ijuallc nntl tlic r.iu; .Hnw  Which mjltnle niHiikiinl |)t|ow  Secure and hi liis ease.
