Mmrn&myM^^  c^^^mmmmgrnc^mmmmc  aaarrra  The comfortable sum of about  $200,000 represents what the Granby  Consolidated Co. is spending this year  in improvements and enlargements at  the company's smelting works near  Grand Forks, including the new ore  and coke bunkers now just about completed, and the machinery and structural steel work for the enlargement of  'he smelter proper.  A. B.W.Hodges, the local managerof  tne company furnished the following  details of the orders placed a few days  a^o for machinery and additional electrical and other equipment, which is all  to be delivered in the early summer  and should be completely installed in  the fall, giving the smelter a capacity  of about 4,500 tons or more each 24  hours, under normal conditions:  The blast furnaces, of which there  are now eight in the battery, are to be  made four feet four inches longer than  at present, making them 22 feet in  length each. This will require 32  more water jackets, making a oarload,  which will be furnished by the Allis-  Chalmers Co., of Chicago. It will not  he necessary to enlarge the furnace  building for this purpose.  The converter plant will be entirely  renewed. At present the converter  plant has just about all it can do to  handle the product of the furnaces,  even though operating at fullest capacity for 24 hours each and every day.  The present stand of three converters  are 70 inches in diameter and 100  inches in length, and the. three new  converter stands will be 84 inches in  diameter and 126 inches long each,  there also being teu new shells. This  will give a much gteater capacity per  shift than at present. The Power &  Mining Machinery Co., of Cudahy,  Wis., secured this order.  To make room for the enlarged converter  ol*5*^ ��A--~-*������' .-*��������-��� *Vil--L/UIIU-'  ihn will be lengthened 80 feet. The  new converters will be electrically operated���the first of this type in the Boundary���and will be operated by 25 h.p.  electric motors.  In the blower building the engine  capacity will be doubled. At present  the engines have =;00 h.p. capacity,  and a new engine of 500 h.p. capacity  has been ordered with a 500 h.p. motor to drive it. It will be of double  cylinder type, capable of furnishing I  10,000 cubic feet of free air per minute  with 15 pounds pressure, and will be,  like the others, of Nordberg make,  from Milwaukee.  To supply the additional blast  needed for the furnaces necessitated  by their being considerably lengthened,  two new Connersville blowers have been  contracted for, each having a capacity  of 30,000 cubic feet of free air per  minute. To operate these blowers  there will be four 150 h.p. electric  motors, all new motors to be of Canadian Westinghouse type.   .  With the enlargement of the blast  furnaces will also be required additional  trolley engines to haul the feed cars  from the coke and ore bins. Four of  these trolley engines, each of 30 h.p.  are now on the way to Grand Forks  from the makers in the east.  All of the above machinery has  been contracted for with the explicit  provision that it is for delivery on or  before July 1st. As soon as it arrives the work of installation will be at  once started, one furnace being changed  over and enlarged at a time. This  will slightly cut down the smelting  capacity for a short time, but when  one or two furnaces are enlarged, the  increase in size will make up for other  furnaces being out of commission temporarily to undergo the same change.  Today the Granby smelter is the  most complete plant of its kind in  Canada, beyond all question, and is  handling from 3,200 to 3,400 tons of  ore daily. When the enlargements  are finished in the fall, this capacity  will be increased by upwards of 1,000  tons per day. From this it is evident  that the directors of the company do  not anticipate that the price of copper  will remain for any great length of time  at the present low level.  THE LORD'S DAY  ALLIANCE MEETING  Talks by T. Albert Moore and  W/M. Rochester  Monday evening a meeting was held  at the Methodist church ind addresses  were made by the visitors in behalf of  the Lord's Day Alliance. Rev. T.  Albert Moore, of Toronto, general  secretary of the Lord's Diy Alliance of  Canada, and secretary of the general  conference of the Methodist church,  and Rev, VV. M. Rochester, of Winnipeg, secretary of the Alliance for the  four western provinces, were present.  Music was furnished by the combined  choirs of the Presbyterian and Methodist churches, and a good audience  was present.  The main topic was One Day's Rest  Out of Seven, and the: speakers took  it up, not so much as a church matter,  but more as a physical, mental and  moral need. The audience seemed  much interested in what they had to  say. The secretaries are travelling  through British Columbia, speaking in  various places on behalf of the Alliance  and its objects and purposes.  ��� ���    . ���  ��� ���  Smashed Record Again  S fyv*  C. P. R. Stopped Sawmill Operations  Murdock Mclntyre, who has lately-  been installing a small sawmill at  Silica siding, five miles from Phoenix  on the C. P. R., was recently served  with an injunction by the C. P. R.,  preventing him from cutting or carrying away any more timber. Mr. Mclntyre had put in and paid for in advance a spur for his special use, and  had purchased and about installed a  small sawmill. The company per  mitted him to do this and go to this  heavy expense and then stopped him  taking the timber. -Omhis own behalf  Mr. Mclntyre states that he had arranged with the agents bf the company  for the timber, but the C. P. R. does  not seem to acknowledge the arrangements. The immediate result is that  this week Mr. Mclntyre let about 20  men go who had been in his employ,  and if the company does not adjust  matters the sawmill'will be moved to  another point���some'place where the  C. P. R. does not own the land, the  timber, the water, the air and the fullness thereof.  This week the Granby minesi  for the third consecutive week,  not only broke the previous week's  shipping record, but all other  previous records.  In the seven days no less than  24,440 tons of ore were sent to  the company's smelter���an average of 3,491 tons of ore daily.  COMING AND 60ING  TOUR OF OUR  SMELTERS  Pioneer   Man   Visits  Them All  little new that he could say regarding  a resumption of operations by his company, but he hoped for good news  before long. As a matter of fact it  all seemed to depend on the copper  market, which is now in anything but  a satisfying condition. Mr. McAllister  would make no sure predictions, but a  still lower price before June would  not surprise him, when the presidential nominations occur in the United  States.  Around the B. C. Copper smelter  everything is quiet as can be, but the  company has a very large stock of  coke on hand now, so that when  orders for resumption are received���say  in May or June, if not sooner there  will be no delay on this score in getting  the plant in operation. It is quite  evident that a 12 or 13 cent market  has no attractions for the management  of the company, but one ruling around  15 cents would be more to the purpose.  Dominion Copper Company  As expected, things are just as somnolent at the smelter of the Dominion  Copper Co., at Boundary Falls as at  the works of the B. C Copper, at  Greenwood- W. C. Thomas, the manager, and P. F. Roosa, the paymaster,  were there, and the former went all  over the works with the writer, showing where he intended to make his  improvements and enlargements when  once the order came from New York  to start up again. Here, too, there is  no special shortage of coke.  Mr. Thomas could give no imfor  mation whatever regarding the probable date of resumption, any more  than Mr. McAllister could about his  company. With his company also, it  seemed to depend entirely on the market price of copper, and he had no  instructions yet from the New York  office. The water is being kept out o f  the Brooklyn mine by some five hours  Xmmj-Hna.Haily. anrl pvarything gonaro.ll}.  is in shape to begin again on short  notice on receipt of orders to that  effect.  A. B; Hood, manager of the Eastern  Townships Bank, Grand Forks, was  here last Monday.'  Robert G. Gordon who has been a  sometime resident of this camp went  over to Moyie last Monday.  Mrs. O. N. Galer returned early this  week from spending several days with  Miss Hodges in Grand Forks.  D. E. McCutcheon, representing R.  G. Dun & Co., at Vancouver, was  here this week on a business trip.  T. A. Love, of Winnipeg, came in  Saturday, and continued his journey to  Hedley this week, where he has a  brother.  A. B. W. Hodges, local manager of  the Granby Company, returned Friday from a trip to the coast and was  up here this week.  Christopher W. Greer, after spending a couple of months in Phoenix,  left this week for his home at Rose  Hill near Kamloops.  John Mulligan returned Wednesday  from a week's trip to the outside, during which time he visited Spokane,  Vancouver and Victoria.  Wm. R. Williams went to Spokane  Sunday, with the intention of continuing his journey to Vancouver and perhaps to Hrince Rupert.  Supt. O. B. Smith, Jr., of the Granby mines, spent several days in Spokane  this week, returning Thursday with  his brother from the east.  J. E. Rose came in from Vancouver  Monday and has been spending the  week in camp, being accompanied by  A. D. Morrison of Grand Forks.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., returned  to Greenwood last Saturday from a  several weeks' trip to New York, in  consultation with the directors of the  concern.  James Marshall, proprietor of the  Hotel Brooklyn, and Mrs. Marshall  returned Monday from a three weeks'  trip to the coast, visiting Mr. Marshall's sister at Ladysmith and stopping  at Halcyon on the. return.  SENTENCEDIOR  THREE Yp|  Burglarized the Wm.  Hunter Store,  Only   Four    Days   Between  Robbery and Sentence*   ���  Eight out ol Fourteen Furnaces  Are In Operation  Have You Registered?  In connection with the appointment  of the commissioners for taking affii-  davits it is well to keep in mind that  the next court of revision of provincial  voters' lists will he held on the first  Monday in May, and in order that new  names be placed on the list which will  then be made up it will be necessary  that they be posted in the court house  for thirty days preceding that date. As  these lists may be the ones used at the  next Dominion election it is important  that this point should not be forgotten.  This week the Pioneer man made a  tour of all the smelters in the Boundary, for the purpose of sizing up conditions just as they are and seeing  what the future has in store, and found  eight out of fourteen furnaces in  blast.  The first one visited was that of the  Granby company at Grand Forks, and  here was noted the most intense activity  in all departments. As the public  knows already, the smelter has recently  made some phenomenal runs, smelting  in given shifts, or days, more ore than  ever previously in the history of the  plant, and showing conclusively what  can be done under favorable circumstances. About 325 men are employed on the several shifts around the  Granby smelter, and nearly a car load  of blister copper, 99% line, is shipped  daily across the continent to the refining  works. The complete battery of eight  furnaces was noted to be in operation,  and the trolley feed trains were seemingly running in every direction, keep-  the furnaces busy eating up their  quota of Phoenix ore.  Mr. Hodges was seen and stated  that everything was moving along like  clockwork throughout the smelting  plant, no delays of any kind occurring  for smooth operating. He had just  returned from Victoria, notwithstanding the fact that both Grand Forks  papers had him at that minute in  Ottawa���where, by the way, he had  not the least intention of going at this  time. Regarding the piice of copper  Mr. Hodges had little to say. At  present the profits of the company  were pretty small, but two or three  months should see improvement.  Two trains of ore each day on both  the C. P. R. and Great Northern railways, are received at the Granby  smelter, and stored in the capacious  ore bunkers if not required to feed the  yawning furnaces. There is no trouble  now, as in the past, about railway cars,  railway motive power, electric power,  or coke.  B. C. Copper Co.  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Collumbia Copper Company,  who had returned but a day or two  previously from his trip to New York,  was up to his ears in work when the  Pioneer man r-i'lrd Inst Monday.  Smilingly, he ;, * c. . nid that there  was  Boundary Mining Notes  This week a night shift was put on  at the Gold Drop by Foreman John  Swanson.  A few men left the Boundaay this  week to secure work in the Butte  copper mines, which recently resumed.  This week the Curlew opening at  the Granby mines was put in full commission for the first time, crusher, conveyor, etc.  A car of ore is being shipped today  from the Sally mine, West Fork, going  out to Trail from Midway, the nearest  railway point.  Outside of the watchmen, Master  Mechanic Brandon is the only man  employed at the British Columbia  Copper Co's smelter.  Granby's monthly pay-day for February came last Tuesday, when about  $50,000 was paid out in Phoenix and  about $30,000 at the smelter in Grand  Forks.  A few men are at work at the Bri  tish Columbia Copper Co.'s Mother  Lode mine, installing the new air compressor plant, part of which was received from Sherbrooke, Quebec, last  week.  W. A. Carlyle, who has been making an examination of the Le Roi  mine at Rossland, has returned to  London and will report to the directorate. He had expected to visit the  Boundary while in British Columbia,  but did not get around to it.  In the month of Januarv but 768,-  000 pounds of copper were imported  from British Columbia to the United  States, against 2,410,116 pounds in  January a year ago. This year's imports represent the output of the Granby Co. for that month���that is, such  part of it as had been shipped to the  refinery in the east.  Four Boys and Two Girls.  Four boys and two girls were added  to the population of Phoenix within  the last few clays, as follows:  To the wife of Louis Penna, March  4th, a son.  To the wife of Domenico Mussatto,  Dominion avenue, March 8, a son.  To the wife of Edgar W. Fox, Snow-  shoe mine, March 10th, a son.  To the wile of A. Hill, Spion K.op,  March 10th, a son.  To the wife of A. I.amb, Spion Kop,  March 12th, a daughter.  To the wife of Albin Johnson, on  Brooklyn avenue, March 12, a daughter.  The Minstrel Maids.  The Minstrel Maids,' under the  Junenile Bostonian management, will  appear in Phoenix for two nights, commencing  Tuesday, March   17, with a  bevy of protty /jirlc, gorgeous COStUmeS  and electrical effects, and all special  scenery. The performance opens with  a minstrel first part, followed by a  musical comedy, where all the latest  songs and hits are sung, and also some  new novelties never betore seen in  Phoenix.  The company number 22 people,  and has been playing to packed nouses  everywhere. They are playing Nelson  for a return date, the third time in two  months. Quite a number of the faces  seen in the Minstrel Maids are well  known to Phoenix theatre goers, as  they made friends by the score when  here last season. Tiny Halycon  Martin, the Midget Minstrel, will  appear at each performance. An entire change of program is given each  night, and if you miss either one of  them, you will miss a treat.

Last Monday night Fred King and  Donald Langley, who said when arrested, that they came from Nelson, obtained, entrance to the store ot the Wm.  Hunter Co., on Dominion avenue and  helped themselves to whatever mer-,  chandise they could carry off, the value  of the goods amounting to about $250.  They fitted themselves out completely  from head to foot, then selected a  couple of suit cases and filled them.  Men's wear and ladies' wear was taken  in profusion, including furs, clothing,  shoes and numbers of other things.  The burglary  was,  of course  dis-  coved the next  morning, and C' H.  Reeves,  the manager, with the aid of  the police set to work on the case.   It  was found that two men, each  with  a  suit case, were seen  passing Hartford  Junction that morning, evidently bound  for Eholt on the C. P. R. track.    Mr.  Reeves,    accompanied; by. Chief  of  Police  Gunn   and   Constable  Dock-  steader, went down to Eholt, and  ran  into the their men in the Hotel Northern in that town.    They were promptly  taken into custody, brought to Phoenix  and given apartments in the city jail.  Wednesday they came up before A.;  S. Hood, police magistrate, who  held  them for trial by a higher court They'  had, it seems,   been   hanging around  camp for the past week or;two, getting  meals at the Granby hotel or elsewhere  whenever they could panhandle a meal  ticket from others.    Incidentally there  had been a number of thefts there that  up to this time could not be accounted .  for.    They  planned  their  robbery in .  good shape, but in getting away cseem- '  ed not to know just how to do it.      ���--'*  The accused elected'; to have 'speedy ���'���  trial,' and -it . was arranged ��� to---bring������������  them up before Judge Brown in the  county court at Greenwood yesterday,  After hearing the evidence and what  they had to say, King and Langley  were sentenced to three year terms in  the penitentiary. They were taken to  Nelson and thence will go to the penitentiary at New Westminster.  Skadar SeacoB li Over  Last Wednesday evening the proprietors of the Phoenix skating rink  gave a hard times carnival, and announced that that evening would be  the last of the season, the ice beginning  to get soft and watery at times, owing  to the balmy climate enjoyed here.  There were a number of races and  other events. One was a matched race  between Wm. Murray and Tommy  Oxley for $50 a side, which Oxley  won. In the snowshoe race were  four heats, H. A. Munro coming out  winner against A. Murray iu the last  heat. In the barrel jumping, Archie  Murray was first, with Joe McClosh  second, the jump being over six barrels.  The judges were G. Kay, A. E. H.  Clark, A. Murray and H. A. Munro.  The small sum of two bits (25c) per  month takes the Phoenix Pioneer to  any postoffice on earth .  *"���>��  ��� �����������-�����*  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

Such a  turn in provincial politics had not been  known in the Dominion in many  years. , Where the Grits thought they  were safe and sure, they were big  losers, and that province is now added  to the growing list of Conservative  provinces. Not only is this the case,  but it is a strong indication of what  may be in store when the Dominion  elections are brought on ' this year, as  they are confidently expected. Mene,  mene, tekel upharsin, seems to be most  appropriate at this particular time, now  that New Brunswick has added another nail to the Liberal coffin.  MATTICR1, OF   .NTKRKST   TO   THOSE   INTERESTED    IN    THE  a copper mining Industry  Copper  In * Mine   Waters.  Kor several years in Butte, the cost  of pumping water from the mines during their development and production  was an important item of expense to  each company, and the possibility of a  profit from such an operation seemed  remote. However, later, the quantities  of copper in the mine water and the  readiness with which it precipitated;  drew attention to the question of  whether the metal could hot be prefflt-  ably extracted. As Jit that time the  price allowed for mistakes and re-adjustments, a successful system was  perfected   and   an   unsuspected profit  -~T���'     O  PROVINCIAL.  if/  190&;../jLf][\jR*3H''   19��8  tju,^ss.,tts*.,^lsi. ���Tii. ,Fr���, Sat.  m  a 8.  r,9  f*li  3��-  99  T.'t  -,-3,  ,,104  '7  ��� 3i  ��� 4  r  11  18  5  *9  6  ���13  20  25,.,26   .27  7  .14  21  28  T  J  .Tholong tunnelprojectfromGreenwood'seems to betaking shape, and a  few weeks�� at' most  should 'see' that  4T'��.V4J4       V,-'"I:     "��'t     ,JM-       ,- .

The country can now  gadabout its business as usual once  more, with no fear of having those long  stapes of little moment from Victoria  served up to them daily���with the exception of the mare's nests which the  Vancouver World,, and the Victoria  Times .seem to have on tap in never  ending variety and quantity.

' The Slocan Mining Review of New  Denver, will shortly issue a 5,000 edition. A large amount of space will  be devoted to the resources of the "Silvery Slocan."  The postal business in Nelson has  so greatly increased of late that it has  become necessary to enlarge the post-  office,.- and an application has been  made/ accordingly to the Dominion  government.  The orchard cleaning campaign is  progressing vigorously under the direction'of Thomas Cunningham, provincial .inspector of fruit pests. More  than a score of men are at work throughout the province.  The provincial ' government has offered $1,000 for the arrest of the two  holdup men who stole $ 19 from the  till of the [Gorge hotel, Victoria. The  local tramway company are offejing an  additionaljreward of $250.  Two new banks were projected for  this province, to be known as the Chartered Bank of British Columbia and  the Bank of Vancouver. The pro-  motors have decided  to  unite forces  realized. To some of the companies,  who possessed the natural conditions  for this extraction, the result more than  paid for the cost of pumping, but others  bound themselvers by contracts with  individuals, while ignorant of the possibilities and suffered accordingly,  A typical precipitation plant used in  catching the copper is that on the  Leonard property in-Butte. There are  numerous rumors as to the profits  made by the owner of this system, and  while they are too unfounded to repeat,  yet it is certain that his gains were  large. The advantage of this work is  the small amount of labor necessary,  and yet the fact that it works continuously without attention.  Future ol Copper  The future of copper is the future of  copper, seems to be about the result  of investigations, discussions and learned dissertations at the present time  One week a copper expert of Boston  tells how short is the supply and how  short is the supply and how the demand  for copper is increasing, and the next  week a Michigan expert tells how  great is the gupply and how it will  take months at the present rate of  consumption jo exhaust the millions of  pounds stored in European and American centers. U dispatch tells of extraordinary large} sales for shipment! to  Europe and the far east, practically  disposing of | the copper output for  several monthi to come, and a famous  statistician onj metals ��� shows how the  consumption rj'as decreased and says  foreign shipments are made for storage.  So the best way to find out the future  of copper is to wait and observe; It is  sufficient for Butte to ��� know that the  mines of the cimp are in operation to  their full capacity and that Mr. Ryan,  who is good enough authority on copper, has said that operations will continue here as long as they are carried  on in any other place in the country.  ���Butte Copper Age.

THE OBSERVATORY  Thinoh Talibd ok at  HOMK AND KLBKWHRHR  The 24 Conservative members of  the; legislative assembly, at the close of  the session last Saturday, presented  Hon. Richard McBride, the premier,  with a fine portrait of himself, painted  by C. S. Hatch, the Winnipeg artist.  J  When the legislative assembly prorogued last Saturday at Victoria, as  usual, numbers of bills were never  reached, and this was entitled by a  wag as the slaughter of the innocents.  Probably, meritorious measures were  thus dropped, but undoubtedly many  entirely devoid of merit received their  death blow in this convenient and  painless manner.  Mt  As Judge Williams settled himself in  the palatial smoking car of the Great  N-irthern last Sunday morning, as he  vas starting for the coast, he remarked:  "How thoughtful it is of Jim Hill to  have the back of one seat taken off, in  case a man is hurt and is brought in  on a stretcher, and how very considerate of passengers that the windows  should be smoked up, so as not to hurt  the eyesight of travellers." :-  �����  These remarks were elicited by the  fact that one seat was broken and the  windows looked as though they had  last been washed in me aays^'oTTWein-  uselah���a standing disgrace to any railway that has made the earnings that  are credited to the Great Northern.  The.car would be a disgrace to third  class travellers in Europe, and yet is  provided for those who pay four cents  per mile to travel.  7  From comments in the provincial  press on the ���: performance: of Robert  Ganthony, an Englishman, and his  company of "artists'/the Boundary was  fortunate in. not being inflicted with  the outfit.; Willis & Cosgrove, of Calgary was booking them, and there  have been so many adverse criticisms  throughout the , territory where .they  appeared, that the firm has begun to  write letters of apology to opera house  managers.. . -  MS  Information has.been received here  that the champion hot air artist, who  has sent broadcast so much misinformation from Grand Forks in the last  two or three years, is about to .leave  that beautiful valley, and seek newer  fields for the exploitation of his talents,  with Prince Rupert  as  his  goal.    It  [ is good hews, and it is also to.be hoped  that he will in future be more careful,  in his press correspondence, to stick to  facts, and facts only. It will. be a  blessing to the Boundary country when  the one referred to betakes himself to  another part of the country.  ..''.�����  Simply because a town happens to  be located in the mountains of the  west, some persons have an idea v that  those places do not have people of  taste and education as residents. Consequently, efforts are made to ruu, in  many a show, at high ��� prices, that  would hardly ;get into a ten cent  theatre in the larger cities. The prb-  motors forget that most people in the  west once resided in the cent belt of  the east, that the country has hundreds  of college graduates and men and women of refinement, as well as others;  and that they are as discriminating:in  their tastes as the residents ���. of any  place east of the Rocky mountains.  One booking firm has learned this  lesson, at any rate, it is pleasant to note.  MS  Will some one arise and teUVus why  it is that railway'companies,]as;a rule,  give such shabby service on branch  lines?. The many: branches..are the  feedftns-tha* nerp" swell the total receipts, and the comfort of the public is  entitled to reasonable consideration on  even these lines. Yet it is scant in the  extreme, in most cases. The above  about the Great Northern^ up to two or  three months ago, could also be said  about the C. P. R. trains run into  Phcenix; but, on the Pioneer calling  the attention of Supt. Coleman -to' the  matter, he promised a prompt /remedy  and carried out the promise. This example is repectfully referred to Supt.  R. C. Morgan, of the Great -Northern.  If Mr. Morgan is unable to.induce the  men who are paid to keep the coaches  on the Phoenix branch clean, perhaps  there js some one who has a residence  in St. Paul who has something, to say  about the matter. It only requires  about six days to get a reply; from St.  Paul by mail over the Great Northern.  P. BURNS & CO., Ltd.  Wholesale and Retail Meat Merchants.  I. H.

One class of little girls  looked particularly bright, and Tasked  the tallest one: "What sin did Adam  commit?"  "He ate forbidden fruit."  "Right.    Who tempted?"  "Eve"  "Not really Eve, but the serpent.1  And how was Adam punished?"  "The girl hesitated and looked con-  used.

The first warm days of spring bring  with them a desire to get out and enjoy the exhilarating air and sunshine.  Children that have been housed up all  winter are brought out and you wonder  where they all came from. The heavy  winter clothing is thrown aside and  many shed their flannels. Then a  cold wave comes and people say that  grip is epidemic. Colds at this season  are even more dangerous than in mid  winter, as there is much more danger  of pneumonia. Take Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy, however, and you will  have nothing to fear. It always cures,  and we have never known a cold to result in pneumonia when it was used  It is pleasant and safe to take. Children like it.

The Company isL to le named the  Greenwood-Phoenix Tuinel Co., Ltd,,  and its promotion is ii the hands of  the Fiduciary Companypf Chicago.  The tunnel will be diven from the  base of the Strath more mountain and  its outlet will be on the Nelson mineral  claim j owned by the Erath more and  Helen Mining Co. In he first three  thousand feet, it will cu several known  veins, four of which an on the Strath-  more and three on the Defiance. Between this and the Cnscent mine, a  distance of of about 3,00 feet further,  it will cut eleven more known veins.  In the first 6,000 feet, 1 total of eigh  teen known veins all carying high ore  values have been fouudat or near the  surface, and if the histoy of practically  every such project is t< be taken as a  basis, the tunnelj'may ��� le expected to  disclose double the nunber of veins  now exposed on the sut'ace.  At present the contol of all the  properties directly a|ongthe route has  been obtained. As the scheme develops it is expected tha the owners  of the claims to the norti and south of  the route will co-operate and that the  company will be able to operate these  claims by laterals.  From the high grade ielt the statement is very familiarly male that $900,-  000 has been taken. When the veins  in the properties are op:ned up, the  million dollar production up to the  presenj will be as nothing compared to  the almost certain results of development.

C MINING I  o~ ��� ��� o  ��inc mining in the Slocan is likely  lo be active this summer.  The Sullivan smelter at Marysville  and the company's mines at Kiinberley  have discontinued operations for the  time being.  The shipment of another car of ore  running 300 ounces in silver from the  Westmount mine has again attracted  attention to the dry belt of the Slocan.  Bedrock has been struck in the shaft  at the Cambrian mine, being sunk in  Moyie lake. The shaft is down 60  feet in water and 39 feet in alluvial deposit.  Those who know Sheep Creek valley  predict that its development this spring  and summer will be the most conspicuous feature in mining in the  Kootenay.  The Red Eagle, near Rossland, has  been leased by Dr. D. , E. Kerr and  Ner Smith to Richard Hooper, Martin  Dally and Samuel Lynn for u period of  a year and a half.  James Cronin and N. J. Cavanaugh  have given up the bond on the Queen  Victoria copper group, near Nelson,  and the owner is starting work on the  property once more.  Rossland shipments last week were:  Centre Star, 2,940 tons; Le Roi, 1,800  tons; Le Roi No. 2, 735 tons; Evening  Star, 35 tons; total, 5,510 tons, making  55,261 tons this year.  The Canadian Goldfie'ds Syndicate  has leased the Sunset No. 2, Alabama  and Gold Hunter mineral claims, at  Rossland, to John RufTher, and W. H.  McLaren for a period of 14 months.  A. B. Perry and G. G. Wilson have  leased the O. K. mine and mill, and  will at once begin mining operations.  The O. K. is located on the south  slope of the O. K. mountain, two and  a half miles west of Rossland.  A shoot of high grade ore has be en  encountered on the 1,600 foot level of  the Le Roi. It is on the south ledge  near the winze. The full extent of the  strike has not yet been determined, but  it is believed to be important, as the  ore assays as high as $40 to the ton.  Samuel Calhoun, of Comox, reports  that as the result of boring operations  which have been going on in the Comox Valley during ��� the course of the  last two months, a seam of coal has  been found of about four and a half  feet in width. This seam is believed  to extend over about 3,500 or 4,000  acres in the Comox Valley.  Saved From  Catarrh  of the  Lungs  By Taking  Pe-ru-na  Mru. Moid ParUuau, Ste. Julio de Vorcherea, P.

"I thank Dr. Hartman for this excellent remedy."  ���MRS. MOIS PARUBAU  cold  NEGLECTED cold  is   generally  r\ the first cause of catarrh.  Women are especially liable to colds.  These ooldB occur more frequently during the wot, sloppy -weather of winter  and spring than any other time of the  I year. Often they  are not considered  serious and so are  allowed to run on,    or they ore treated  in such a way as to only palliate the  symptoms, while tho cold becomes  more deep-seated and the patient finally  awakens to the fact that she has a well-  developed case of catarrh.  By reason of their delicate structure,  the lungs aro frequently tho seat of a  cold, especially if there is the slightest  weakness of tlio organs. The treatment  ot oatarrh of the lungs is also more difficult and discouraging than catarrh of  any other organ of the body.  It would bo wise, therefore, to guard  against it by ev<��ry ni-m-aution possible.

MIGHTON <a CAVANAUGH,  &SaS2SSSaB2S2S2SaKSiL^HSI!S252Sa5 HSZSHSE! iSSSZSSSBSSSiS  COMING COPPER  BOOM IN BOUNDARY  Heinze's Confidant Predicts It  For Coming Summer  P. A. O'Farrell, of New York, a  large stockholder in the McKinley  Mines, Franklin camp���a close associate of F. Augustus Heinze, another  large stockholder���and A. B. Mac-  Kenzie, secretary of the McKinley  Mines, were at the Yale on Wednesday,  While in the city they met several of  the local stockholders. To the Gazette  Mr. O'Farrell said: "No further work  can be done oh the McKinley mines  till the railroad reaches Franklin camp.  No large plants can be installed and no  big shipments can be made from the  McKinley until then. The railroad is  now at Lynch Creek, twenty miles  from the McKinley, and it can be  rushed to the McKinley this summer,  but that is for the railroad company  and not for the McKinley to do."  Asked as to the copper situation,  Mr. O'Farrell said: "Politics and depression are at present occupying the  attention of the people of the United  States and it is impossible to forecast  the coining of another copper boom.  It will come, however, with the revival  of business and it should come to the  Canadian North-west during the coming summer."
