25,388 TONS IN
Breaking Records Continuous Performance
Granby Mines Sent Out 4,048
Tons in 24 Hours
And Curlers are  Making the
^Most of It.
Although there were many other
attractions in town this week, the interest in the contests of the curling
club continues, the best ice of the
winter now being on the rinks.
Early in the week the Toronto Silver Plate Co. and President's prizes
competition was closed, the Strachan
rink winning from George and in the
last game from Sherbino. This makes
two cups that the Strachan rinks have
won this winter, and Mr. Strachan, who
is a great enthusiastic, is getting quite
a collection of this kind of souvenirs.
A game was played this week by
the Social Mess Club against the
Lowei Town, the line up being as follows: Social Mess: McCracken, Perkins, Hyslop and Carter; Lower Town:
George, Morrin, Gardner and Reeves.
The Lower Town won by a score of
11 to 8, one of the onlookers stating
that the Social Mess boys put up a
good game, but of course did not
have a chance to win.
Just now the final competition is on
between rinks from the Upper Town
and Lower Town. The contest is for
the most points in ten games, results
thus far being as follows:
Morrin won from Strutzel—14 to 6
Campbell    "    Reeves—12 to 11
Gardner      "    Campbell-19 to 6
In   this   competition   the     Lower
Town is now (up   to  Thursday night)
30 points ahead.
When the Pioneer published last
week that the Granby Company had
shipped a total of 24,440 tons of ore
from the company's mines in Phoenix
for the preceeding seven days, this
paper did not anticipate that it would
be called upon to record any more
breaking of shipping records for a while
to come. While the Pioneer was being printed Friday evening, the mine
management was just completing the
largest day's shipment fiom the property being no less than.4,005 tons for
the 24 hours, arid this &eek, Wednesday, 4,048 tons was the output for
one day.
Not only that, but by reference to
our ore table on this page, it will be
noticed that the tonnage for this week
amounted to the splendid figures of 25-
388 tons, which was at the rate of 3,620
tons daily, or more than 100,000 tons
per month—something never heretofore done in Phoenix, from one property, in the Boundary, or in Canada,
for that matter. This tonnage was put
out in spite of the fact thai the big
Victoria hoist was out of commission a
day or two, awaiting some minor repairs to the 250 h. p. motor by which
it is operated.
To Store 15,000 Tons
Recently large additions have been
completed to the ore bunkers at the
Gtanby smelter, and gradually a re
serve of ore is being accumulated there
which will amount to about 15.000
tons. This, in some measure, accounts
for the unusually heavy shipments
from the company's mines the last two
weeks—though the eight blast furnaces
at the smelter itself are doing their best
to use up the full tonnage sent down
to the valley by the two railway lines,
and are quite successful in the effort.
The coke bins at the smelter have
been materially enlarged in the last
few months, together with the ore bins
and it is intended in the future to
carry a greater supply of this fuel, in
case of breakdowns on the railways, or
any other cause temporally stopping
the regular shipments of about 500
tons daily from the Crow's Nest Pass

Two Nights of Minstrel Maids.
Tuesday and Wednesday evenings
of this week the Minstrel Maids, under
the Juvenile Bostonian management,
gave entertainments at the opera house.
Notwithstanding the St. Patrick's day
dance on Tuesday evening, there was
an excellent house, and the second
evening a fair audience was present.
Taken all in all, the show was a
source of amusement and pleasure to a
large number, a change in programme
taking place the second evening. Little
Halcyon Martin, the six-year old midget, captured the audience as the interlocutor in the minstrel first part, while
Miss Fay Griffin, as Budweiser, of
Budweiser Peak, in the second part,
convulsed every one present with her
excellent male impersonation. Not a
man appeared on the stage at any time,
except to peek from behind the curtains before the entertainment began.

There is talk among the Great Nor-
thean railway officials of cancelling the
Sunday taains running north of Spokane
to British Columbia points. The railway employees would doubtless welcome such an order, if the general
public did not, as the trainmen for the
most part are paid by the month.

Invitation To United States Fleet.
Hon. Richard McBride, on behalf
of the provincial government, has requested the Leiuteuant-Governorj' to
invite through the proper channels the
American fleet to visit Victoria and
Vancouver during its stay on ihe
Pacific. The provincial government
feels that the occasion is fraught with
considerable importance to the Pacific
coast generally and hence their action.
The government has been asked by
the Vancouver authorities to take such
action, and Dr. Elliott S. Rowe, the
secretary of the tourist association of
that city, waited upon the government
in that connection. The invitation
will probably be conveyed through the
secretary of state at Ottawa to the
navy department and to Admiral Evans
or his successor in command.
D. Mussatto expects his new building wiil be finished next week.
About the the first of May the big
sawmill at Cascade will resume operations.

The actual   shrinkage   in   copper   profits,  whether   from  mining or trading,  amounts   to nearly  75 per cent as compared   to the maxi-  mun attained a year ago, and it affords  a striking  commentary on the  confident assurances given by insiders when  copper  was  selling  at   26   cents   per  pound.���Mining and Scientific Press.

During ,the .recent. session,of, the  provincial legislative assembly,' an act  wes passed authorizing tbe loan of $10,-  000 for two years, at five per cent, to  the Canada Zinc Co., Ltd. As security the government 'takes a first mortgage on all; ,the property of the company, real and personal.  The_Cahada Zinc _ Co. is endeavoring to establish a zinc' smelter at or  near Nelson, .and its promoters believe  they have.solved an hitherto difficult  problern-pthat of separating - the zinc  from other metallic contents in ores  from,t,he; Kootenay mines. They were  "upfa.tree", financially,. and,, with influential friends, tasked tbe government  to assist them to this moderate extent.  Iff thcenterprise proves successful, the  government 'will 'get its ' money with  interest,' and the establishment of this  new. industry will, certainly be a great  thing, for,, metalliferous .mining in-British Columbia.) Otherwise, the money  will be sunk, as the plant will only sell  for old junkj.  And then, this precedent opens up  a wide vista. What is the matter with  the government loaning a few thousand  to some meritorious newspaper���like  mines and smelters that are not yet on  paying basis, they are always short of  cash. In fact, there are innumerable  objects whose promoters would be  glad to negotiate a loan from the government, and who could p*t up a nice  line of talk to back them up, too.  B. C MINING  But, to any  man familiar with   the  large amounts  of capitaj  needful   to  establish any  smelting industry  on a  firm and profitable  basis, the question  arises as to what can be done with  so  small a sum as $10,000?    One Boundary smelter has five  times  that sum  invested in coke alone.    It  is a mere  bagatelle, as needful  expenditures  in  such industrial establishments go.    Of  course, it is the last  straw that breaks  the camel's back, and the zinc smelter  may be able to tide over and be made  a  financial  success  with this  item of  $10,000, but men  of wide   experience  in the smelting industry will look with  some suprise at what is expected to be  accomplished   with this  comparitively  insignificant amount  of cash,   even in  addition  to the many  thousands already put into the plant.  Placer mining is active on Hall  creek in the Lardeau.  The Findlay river placers continue  to attract a good deal of attention.  Leasing of mines in the Rossland  district is becoming more and more  popular.  I The new company taking over the  Ymir mine, is said to have ample  funds, and will prosecute work vigorously.  It is reported that the coal mines at  Comox are under contract to furnish  the United States War vessels at Bremerton and San Francisco with 100,-  000 tons of coal.  In 1907 the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Co. mined 981,938 tons, as against  213,295 tons in 1906. The company  paid its regular to per cent dividend  for 1907 amounting to $335,128.98  F. C. Weeks and B. S. Adams, of  Spokane, have . staked placer ground  near the historic town .of Granite, in  the Similkameen, arid "will put in a  dredge this summer costing $1,000.  It is said that on March 30th the  provinciah:government -cancels its reserve in East Kootenay. The land  thus thiown open, for location includes  the rich coal and oil lands of the Flathead Valley.

Joseph  Martin���the same old Fighting Joe���  announces that he will go to England  and make his fnture residence. If he  can stay there and keep out of politics,  il will be more than he has been able  to do in B. C. He's not built that  way.  ���������  "I have more confidence in Phoenix  than ever in the'past," said a well  known business man of this city, a few  days ago. "The future looks good to  me," he continued, "and the coming  summer will prove the truth of what I  say. We have not been having what  one would call boom times the last  few months, but, in my humble judgement, which I am backing with hard  cash, the year in the Boundary will  average up well." We would rather be  an optimist for five minutes than a  pessimist all our lives.  Kootenaian. With the general slump  in that district Dave slumped, too,  f varying fortune following him to  j Nome, GoJdfield and other mining  camps. Now he is said to have  settled down in Seattle as a writer of  juvenile books. King liked nothing  better than to be in the seething vortex  of a boom of any kind���but this is a  change to those who knew him some  15 years ago.  According to the latest prognostications, Prince Rupert town lot enthusiasts will probably have to wait till next  September to get in on the "ground  floor" there But with the beginning  of railway construction thereabouts in  May, a rush will take place, just the  same.

J. Whit* tt Co., momkiI  Sold KrmvkO*  pany., Ltd. is being organized to develop 1400 acres of claims north of  Revelstoke. About 80 men are expected to be employed this summer,  and the output is hoped to be $800,-  000 worth of mica, for which there is a  good market.  A strike of good ore has been made  upon the Flint mine, in the Kaslo'  Slocan district, where work has been  proceeding all winter. An ore body J  has been uncovered at the breast of'  the tunnel carrying four feet of milling  ore and a foot of clean galena fit for  direct shipment.  The St. Eugene is shipping 325 tons  of Silver-lead ore to Trail each week,  besides that concentrated. There was  recently opened up a body of ore 40  ft. wide and 300 ft. long on the 2,000  level. This is an important strike, and  goes to prove the continuation of the  St. Eugene Lode.  The work recently done on the  Wheal Tamar, the discovery of a large  ore body on Jacko Creek adjacent to  the Cyclone group, and the results obtained on several other properties  further encourage the idea that the  future prospects of Kamloops camp  are of the brightest.  A mining expert states that the Jed-  way Camp, on Queen Charlotte Islands,  is a phenomenal one, such wealth of  mineral only being found once every  twenty years. When properly opened  the camp will be as extensive and  have as great a producing outfit as  either Cobalt or Goldfield,   Nevada  "Can I pass over your line?"    <\\0  replied   the   railroad   man,   "law's tool  strict.    We can't   pass anything   but a)  dividend now."  The Cranbrook Herald says that  "The Granby smelter at Greenwood  will be. enlarged." Now, is not that  the limit? The Old Man must have  been off shift when that item crept into  his usually well edited weekly. Of  course, the Granby smelter will be enlarged, but it is located some 25 miles  from Greenwood, and is in the Kettle  river valley near Grand Forks.  There is no shortage of coke   these  days at either  of the three   Boundary  smelters.    It is, and   it   is not, at one  and the same time, a burning question.  ***  The humorist of the Moyie Leader,  who is developing into a good imitation of a Scotchman, printed the following last week, under the heading  "Catching On:"  A recent arrival from the east came  into the Leader office yesterday and  spoke thus: "I am catching on to the  western language all right���a coyote is  a species of wolf, and a cayuse is a  species of horse," said he, "but what  in h���kind of a beast  is a chinook?"

Would do away With Method  of Measurement.  A resident in Victoria recently ptni  to a friend in the intei.ior of the pro.  vince, who is deeply .interested in the  irrigation question, a copy of the report of the . irrigation'.; cointiiihsion issued a short time apo by the provincial government; ������In .'..acknowledging  receipt of the report the recipient  wrote: "Truly, this is a'Valuable docu-  mentj.and the government are deserving of much' commendation for having  secured the services of one eminently  capable of probing so deeply this very  important question, the irrigation of  the arid lands of the province. Not  all the intricate phases of this question  are placed before us in this report, but  enough are offered, to show how essential it is that/the near, future should  witness a measure of .legislation dealing with, this matter.',, It would be  well, however, to make haste slowly,  for no question ever presented to the  people of the province contains greater  potentialities.' By the way, there is  one recommendation in the said  report which should be acted upon at  once; that is that the designation in  cubic feet per second of a flow of  water contained in, or represented by,  a certain number of miner's inches.  In regard to this it is pointed out by  a local mining authority that the provincial mineralogist in the annual report of the minister of mines for 1905,  (p. 48) stated; "In British Columbia a  miner's inch of water is by statute not  a quantity of water, but a flow of water  equal to 1.68 cubic feet per hour."  There is, though, it is stated in an  other act, a definition which differs  from this. Both the provincial miner  alogist and (J. E. Mohun, C. E., have  before now urged the provincial government to do away entirely with  "miner's inch" in connection with legislative enactments. It is possible this  question will be dealt with when the  provincial legislature shall again be in  session.  "Westward Hoi" For April.

It was caused  by a defective stove pipe, and was  quickly put out. Tuesday a fire occurred in the residence of Mrs. Moore,  also, on Golden Eagle addition���again  caused by a defective flue. The damage was largely to clothes, the flames  being put out before the department  reached the scene.  BEGGAR PRINCE  COMIC OPERA CO.  Will Appear at Opera House  Monday, March 30.  The Morning Journal (Edmonton)  February 25th, has the following notice  of the above company's recent appearance in that city: If the opening  performance of the Beggar Prince  Opera Company at the opera house  last night was not the biggest event  claiming the attention of the good  people of Edmonton, then the theatre  packed with an audience that was representative of every class of citizens  belied itself; and if there was anything  more entertaining or heartily appreciated than the offering, that ever  popular comic opera, Fra Diavolo, so  pleasingly rendered by Bob Martin's  company of singers and players, then  there is another guess coming for the  Journal.  Edmonton theatre goers and opeia  lovers have time and again heard Fra  Diavolo sung by other companies, but  the "Beggar Prince" company, suffered  nothing by comparison with any who  have appeared here in comic opera.  r  SOriE WATCH FACTS  u  WHEN thinking about buying a  Watch Time-Keeping Quality  should be your first consideration.

Miss Ethel Balch  Miss Ethei Balch, the prima donna  of the company, carried off the chief  honors in the roll of Zerlina; pretty,  captivating was her acting, and charming her singing; altogether she created  a most favorable impression. Jay  Taylor, in the roll of Fra Diavolo the  brigand; shared the musical honors  with Miss Balch. A tenor singer of  sweetness and power is Mr. Taylor,  delighting by his artistic treatment of  the musical parrs assigned to him as  well as by his dramatic ability. Joe  Coombes, in the role of Lorenzo, the  captain of the guard, who sings as an  accomplished artist, will also prove a  favorite during the week's engagement,  his work at the initial performance being very taking.  Miss Vivian Forest has been heralded as the delightful comedienne of the  company. There was little occasion  for Miss Forest to appear at her best  in last night's performance, but the  touches she gave to the character of  Lady~AIIcash were sufficient1 to indicate how great is her success when the  opportunity offers. Fred Godding  gave a very good portrayal of the English lord, while George Murray and  Robert Taylor as Diavolo's banditti  were the gay mirth provoking comedians of the play. Miss Lelia Thome  as Mother Matteo, and all the other  members of the cast played their parts  with success. A well balanced company, one can say, capable of affording  much pleasurable entertainment during  the week."
