JlomttQpmgpsoji;  3<^>  Forward, and yet again forward,  seems to, be the watchword of the  Granby Consolidated, under the energetic superintendency of A. .B. W.  Hodges. It is a poor week or a poor  inonth when some extension or considerable machinery addition is not  planned; and to plan it means to put  it into effect. It is a year or two since  it was thought by many, not in the  counsels of the company, that the company was so well fixed with plant and  machinery that further additions would  not be likely to be considered for some  time to come���with the- exception of  the continual smelter enlargement.  But it lias not worked, out that way,  as the Pioneer man remarked this  week in a chat with Mr. Jiodges while  he was in Phoenix.' ' The business-like  superintendent of the Granby Consolidated is continually planning, not only  how he can turn out more and more  blister copper, each month, but how he  can turrfjt out for.a little less .money  than for the preceding -.-..month.  This is shown by the reported. announcement of Manager Grayes in  Boston, printed recently in the Pioneer,  [that the company is now producing its  pure copper, including all expenses of  mining, smelting and marketing, at  about 8 cents per pound. Few.-companies in the United Jjjtates, cai>i-.show  such'a recorH, even though they .(have  richer ore, as most of them have.  After getting his big battery of eight  furnaces in commission at the.smelting  works, with his own patented self-  charging apparatus, Mr. Hodges set  about arranging for enlarging some of  the six smaller furnaces, and is gradually accomplishing that- result, so  that in a few months he will probably  be'smelting more than 3,000 tons of  ore daily, against about 2,600 to 2,700  tons daily, as tit present! Then with  the eight furnaces it kept the converter plant so busy that it was not easy  to handle all the molten matte. This  meant the addition of another converter stand, which will ,-be ..an accomplished/act before long. And thus  the improvements continue at the  smelter.  At the Compaay . Mines.  "No less activity, also, is shown at  the company's mines in thisreamp, the  tendency "always being towards a larger  output and at a less cost per_ ton, with  development work kept well in advance,  .t the same time, every precaution is  taken to prevent a possible stoppage of  operations by unforseen break   downs.  For instance, when last. December  the huge No. 1 ore crusher, located on  the C.P.R. tracks, was burned downj  it threw the great bulk of the tonnage  to the No. 3 terminal, where the ore  goes out over the Great Northern. As  some one said al that time, "The Lord  was good to j itn Hill," but Mr. Hodges  immediately realized that if the powerful  electric motor opeiating in the No. 3  tunnel, should happen to break down,  it would seriously curtail operations at  both mines and smelter. So, immediately a duplicate of that electric  locomotive was ordered from the Westinghouse Mfg. Co., which only arrived  this week. Now, there is little danger of a serious stoppage of operations in the No. 3 tunnel.  But other openings and terminals  are being provided for sending out ore  beside the No. 3. The n^w crusher  which has recently been installed and  is now starting operations, is located  on the C.P.R. tracks, and will greatly  relieve the pressure on the No. 3 terminal machinery. Besides that, some  time in April the Gold Drop ,wjll begin outputting over the C.P.R from a  new opening, and if this ore pioves to  be what is expected, of which there  is little doubt, fall is likely to see another giant ore crusher at the Gold  Diop ore bins.  An improvement which is about to  be installed is an automatic ore bin  feeder, for the No. 3 terminal. This  is something new in British Columbia  mining and will be operated by elec  tricity, and is more economical than  air or steam. The machine is planned  to lift the ore. in buckets on an  endless chain from the crusher  to the railway ore bins, and will be a  great improvement over the present  system ol raising the ore in two large  skips. This will be installed as soon  as the new crusher and Gold Drop  terminal are in good running oider.  It required a whole carload of this  machineiy, which came from. Cleveland, Ohio.  Thus it can be readily noted that  the Granby Consolidated is steadily  reaching out and enlarging, improving  and getting costs down to where they  should be���where  the  company   can  I maintain the payment of fair profits to  the shareholders, who have waited for  A well attended meeting of  Phoenix volunteer fire brigade  held Tuesday evening at the city hall,  when the department was reorganized  and new officers elected as follows :  l'rejident, G. \V. Rumberger; vice-  president, Danny Dearie; secretary-  treasurer, O. N. Galer. It was decided to "consolidate the two hose companies and have.two captains, Isaac  Crawford and Cv N, Galer being  chosen for those positions.  The racing ream also met afterwards  and organized, appointing 1-.. A. Mun-  roe,' W. X. McDonald and Harry  Jackson as a committee to see a.out  securing racing-3uits, etc., the members of the city council having signified  their willingness that the city should  assist financially. H. A. Munroe was  chosen captain of" the racing team,  Roy Thompson secretary and O. N.  Galer manager. Mr. Galer says that  the prospects of having the fastest  team yet sent out from Phoenix are of  the best.  Now Investigating Oro Denoro  Mine.  Tests Going on With Diamond  Drill.  Card ol Thanks.  At the regular meeting of Phoenix  Miners' Union No 8, Saturday, March  24th, 1906, it was unanimously agreed  to extend the thanks of the union to  the ladies who so ably, and generously  assisted with' the'supper and eutertain-  ment, given in honor of the delegates  to convention of District Association  No. 6. ���  SHOT TWICE  IN MIDWAY  Druggist Mistaken For  Manager.  Bank  Two  Bullets Fired  - Him.  Through  Tuesday evening a dastardly outrage  was committed   at   Midway,   when   a  holdup was attempted' oh ' H. E.   El-  dridge, a druggist of that town, he   receiving two shots and being now in the  hospit.il asva result.     The tracas happened   about   ten    thirty,   when   Mr.  Eldridge   happened   to   be   near   the  Eastern   Townships    Bank,   which   is  close to   his   own   store.    A   masked  man confronted   him, and   holding  a  formidable   looking   gun   in   his   face  told him to hold up   his   hands.    Eldridge replied, "Not much," and with  that the thug fired, the bullet  from  a  44 calibre revolver going through   the  victim's hip.    Once again the assassin  fired and that   lime   the   bullet   went  through    Eldridge's    shoulder.    The  first bullet,   after   plowing   its  bloody  way through     the      druggist's      hip,  aiso'went through   the .bank   window  and   then   through   a   partition,   near  which E. C. Moe, the acting manager,  was sifting.  The shots attracted a large crowd  at once.butthe would-be murderer had  made off, and was soon doubtless safe  in the United States, which is about  three minutes run from where the  shooting took place. Many reports  have been sent out about the excitement at Midway, etc., but the Pioneer  learned yesterday from that place that  these reports were greatly exaggerated.  But one motive is suggested for  the shooting of Mr. Eldridge, and  that is he resembles Mr. Moe, of the  bank, the latter having had some experience with would-be robbers some  months ago, in which Mr. Moe was  the shooter. It was thought at the  lime he had wounded one of the  thieves. Mr. Eldridge is in a bad  way at the hospital, ' but will recover.  The two policemen at Midway are  doing what they can to find the thug  or thugs, although the chance is small.  What will evidently be one of the  important mining deals of ihe season  in ihe Boundary is now being undertaken in Summit camp, by which the  Br.tish Columbia Copper Co., if all  goes well, is expected to take over the  Oro Denoro mine. For several weeks  the matter has been under consider-  aiion by the officials of the two companies, including president F. I..  Uiide: wood, Manager J. E. McAllister  and Consulting Engineer Frederic  KsfTcT and F. W. Thomas, on behalf  of the B. C. Copper Co., and President J. S. C. Fraser, and Managing  Direcior Smith Curtis, of the I. enoro  Mines, Ltd. Most or all of these  officials have visited the Oro Denoro  mine in the course of the last ten days,  and a week ago all the men at the  property were laid off by Supt. Graham,  and a diamond drill sinned operations  for ihe B. C. Copper Co , ore shipments to the dianby smelter having  been discontinued for the present..  Officials connected wiih the companies interested decline to tmke statements or give any > pariicuiai. ��>f ' linden!, hut it is geneially believed lhai  an option has been given to the B. C.  Copper Co. by tlie Denoro Mines,  Ltd., and in the meantime lesing by  diamond drill is going no there.flrsi in  the lower ore quarry and later in the  lower tunnel, etc.  The Oro Denoro mine adjoins the  Emma mine and has spurs from both  the C. P. R. and Great Northern  railways. The 1 . C. Copper Co. has  been operating the Emma mine with  considerable profit for several years,  and as if is known the company is  looking for more cood properties, now  that the smelter enlargement has been  actually started, it is not surprising  that they should take over the Oro  Denoro, if satisfied with their investigations. The Oro Denoro has a small  compressor plant, which also serves  the Emma mine with power.  The Oro Denoro is known to have  a large body of ore, which was cut by  the grading gangs of both railway companies when the lines were built into  Phoenix. In the past the mine has  shipped about 40,000 tons of ore, of  which some 6,300 tons have been sent  out thisyear,the Granby smelter taking  all or nearly all of the output. Smith  Curtis, of Rossland, has been at the  head and front of the Oro Denoro ever  since .work was started on the property,  and has never lost faith in the   mine.  It is. expected that early in April  everything will be in readiness foi the  Granby mines to ship from .the Gold  Drop mine through the new terminal  on the C.I-R. tracks at the Snowshoe.  The Gem and Emma fraction  claims, in Summit, camp, have been  taken by the Hall Mining & Smelting  Co., of Nelson, which owns one-quarter interest in the Emma, theother  three-quarters interest being owned by  the B. C. Copper Co.  Several electric motors,' including  two of 100 h.p. each, have arrived at  the Dominion smelter at Boundary  Falls, for the new electrical equipment  of that smelter Other electrical-machinery ordered last fall, however, with  delivery guaranteed in 60..days, has  not yet put in its appearance.  FIVE OF'EM  NOW IN USE  Diamond Drills In  Mines.  The  Phoenix   Cl.k.  The current issue of the B.C. Gazette contains notice of the incorporation of the Phoenix Club, a social organization about to be started here in  connection with the Royal Billiard  Parlors and Bowling Alleys. The  names of the first board of direcrors or  trustees are RobeJt H. Karaiofsky,  Alexander McDonald, Alvin Taylor,  W. Connell and John Mulligan. Mr.  Karatofsky stales that he expects to  have the club in working order  some time next   week.  by  JOY REIGNS  AT MIDWAY  Dominion  Copper  Starting.  Boundary  Co.   Just  Because  Midway & Vernon  R. R. Is a Go.  Legally  Entitled  sidy.  to  the Sub-  DISCUSSED THAT  $1,000 ACCOUNT  Paul Johnson ia Alaska.  Word comes from Had ley, Prince of  Wales Island, Alaska, that Paul Johnson, who had charge of the building of  the smelter tor the B. C. Copper Co.,  at Greenwood, and of its operation tor1  several years, has been doing excellent  work with the smelting works which  he erected for the Alaska Smelting and  Refining Co. at Hadley. In a little  over two months, during which the  smelter has been operating, some 23,-  000 tons of ore have been smeltpd,  which produced 1,300 tons of matte,  worth $225,000. The smelter started  without any hitches, according to report, and runs like clockwork.  F. L. Underwood, president of the  British Columbia Copper Co., who  spent three days in Greenwood last  week from New York, left Saturday  over the Great Northern for the east.  John A. Morrin, and wile, who have  been off on a vacation to Mr. Morrin's  old home in Quebec for the last two  or three months, returned last Saturday looking much improved in health.  City Council Again Laid Over  Health Bifl.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council ihere were present his worship,  Mayor Rumberger, and Aldermen  Oxley, Kane and Brown.: Among the  matters considered was that of the account of $1,000 from Drs. Gordon and  Boucher, for acting as healih officers  of the city during the typhoid epidemic, from December 15th to February 2 1 st. The account had previously  been sent back to be itemized, and  both doctors were present to make any  explanations desired. The account as  now rendered shows just what was  done for nearly every day of the lime  included in the bill, with an explanation that it was considered reasonable  for expert professional service of the  nature referred to,and other physicians  epidemic accounts were quoted in support of the contention. The matter  was discussed pro and con for some  time by the aldermen, and was finally-  laid over.  The report of the fire department  committee, which consists of the board  of works, was received and adopted.  The report recommends the following  changes in the location of fire hydrants : Move hydrant from Morrin,  Thompson & Co.'s corner across  Phoenix street; move hydrant in the  hollow on Brooklyn avenue lo the top  of the hill, near the residence of W. J.  Porter; place new hydrant at the corner of Knob Hill avenue and Church  street; place new hydrant corner oi  Victoria avenue and First street.  The council also decided to purchase 250 feet of light hose for the fire  department, subject to the firemen's  orders, for racing and other purposes,  and 10 denote $25 towards the gymnasium of tlie fire depaitment in the  upper part of the city hall.  Lost���Fur Bos.  On the evening of the dance given  at the Miners' Union hall, Thursday,  March 22d, a fur boa was found in the  building. The owner can secure same  by proving property to the secretary ol'  the union and paying for this notice..  The Midway & Vernon railway, between the. points named, a distance of  150 miles, will, according to officers of  the company, be pushed forward now  with all expedition. This is in consequence of a decision arrived at by-  Chief Justice Hunter, last Tuesday at  Victoria, that the railway construction  on the line technically began within  the time specified for it to begin,  namely, on or before January 1, 1904.  Work was stopped on the road last  December after 10 miles had been  graded by the Okanagan Construction  Co. because the minister of finance of  the province.had said to the manager  of the Bank of Montreal, in Montreal,  that the province would not pay the  subsidy of' $5000 a mile unless the  company proved a right to it in court.  The decision of the chief justice of  the supreme court means that the company is entitled to the subsidy. During the taking of evidence the assertion  was repeatedly made that the C. P. R.  had tried to harass the company. Secretary 'McDowall, of the Midway &  Vernon, said in evidence that at the  time work was stopped by the finance  minister's remark hurting the credit,  that millions were available and the  company had in view an immense  scheme of railway construction far beyond this line and amounting to greater  mileage than the proposed Grand  Trunk Pacific.  It has evidently become an accepted  theory that low grade ore bodies can  be tested best by means of the diamond drill, and within the last year  or..two this theory has been exemplified more than ever in the Boundary.  The difference between tunneling or  sinking shafts at from $10 to $20 per  foot, and diamond drilling at $3 to $5  per foot, is not small in the development of any property. Therefore, the  system of diamond drilling is growing  in popularity.  In the Boundary today there are no  less than five of these diamond drills  at work, and those who do this kind of  work by contract state that from the  demand several more drills could be  used.  First and foremost among the mining companies doing diamond drilling  is the Granby Consolidated, where the  work is being done by contract by  Boyles Brothers, of Spokane. Since  September, 1904, the firm has had  drills running steadily in different  parts of the Granby mines, and for  some months past two drills have been  running on double shifts. Since starting, there have been 14,045 feet done  in these mines, and with 2,875 feet  drilled previously a total of 16,920 feet  were drilled���more than three miles.  These figures are up to March 1st.  At the British Columbia Copper  Co.'s Mother Lode mine the company  has been operating a diamond drill  since April, 1905, and has drilled  3,293 feet all told. In each of the  above cases, while no official statement  is made, it is known that the best of  results nave been obtained in locating  important ore bodies and ahoots.  The*=Mother-Lode  diamond   drift--  was recently  transferred to the Emma :  mine in Summit camp, also controlled  by the same company,  where the engineers had laid out an extensive program of work of this   kind.      Shortly,  however, the drill was sent back to the  Mother   Lode   mine,  and   a   contract  entered into with Knight &   Stone, of  the Spokane Diamond  Drill Contract-  itg Co.    Last   week   this  concern set  up   their first.drill at the Oro Denoro,  where some testing   of   this   nature is  now being done for the B. C. Copper  Co.  Knight & Stone also recently finished a contract for doing something over  800 feet of diamond drilling at the  Betts and Hesperus.  In addition to the above the Do- ,  minion Copper Co. has decided to do  some drilling in the lower levels of the  Brooklyn mine in this camp, the mine  having been equipped for some time  with an approved drilling machine.  Some parts which were needed arrived  yesterday, and the machine will soon  be at work. This will make five diamond dills now in use in the Boundary.    Lateit Pricei ia Metala.
