Ore shipments from the mines of  the Boundary total exceeding 200,006  so'far for 1904.  The East Kootenay Coal & Coke  Co., of Grand Forks, will incorporate  with a capital of $100,000.  . Diamond drilling at the Volcano  mine, on the North Fork, is reported  to have been temporarily suspended  on account of water.  On the Hon Pedro, being operated  by the Chicago British Columbia Mining Co., the contractors now have the  shaft down about 75 feet.  But one of the two steam shovels is  now being used at the Granby mines.  As soon as the snow is gone both  machines will be put in commission  again.  H. H. Shallenberger recently sold  his Alameda claim, Deadwood Camp,  adjoining the Mother Lode, to Minneapolis capitalists,who expect to develop  the property.  Jay P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Co., left for Montreal last  Saturday. As usual, following such  trips, some interesting information is  likely to be forthcoming.  While water prevents shipping from  the Senator, Summit camp, for the  present, development is being continued, and before long ore will be going  put to the Granby smelter again.  Fraser Bros, have suspended development on the Evening Star in -Wellington camp, on account of too much  water. The new shaft is now down  about 45 feet, and is in excellent copper ore.  The British Columbia Copper Co. is  erecting a good sized building at its  Mother Lode mine, for the use of employees. There will be 100 lockers,  the second story to be utilized as an  assembly room or hall.  ��� The quarterly dividend of one.per  cent, on Granby stock should be declared this month. The company has  been having the most successful run in  its history, and is treating about r,800  to 2,000 of its own ore a day, while it is  handling perhaps 100 tons'a day outside ore". With plenty of fuel on Hand  and with the stacks all running, there  should be no difficulty in paying: the  dividend.-���Spokesman-Review.  Wm. Fowler, who has been spending the past few months among' his  old friends in Scotland, returned -last  week to the Boundary to prosecute  development on the Defiance. Just  before leaving Greenwood last autumn  he completed the purchase of this  property and is planning to equip it  with machinery this spring, and to  speedily make a shipping mine of it.  The grade of ore in the Defiance is  high and the location good.-  J. J. Campbell, of the Hall Mines  smelter, was seen yesterday in regard  to the recent strike on the Emma mine  in the. Boundary. The strike, Mr.  Campbell says, is in a new tunnel recently started near the old workings.  The tunnel was first driven through 30  feet of country rock, and then about 30  feet of magnetite ore was met. The  magnetite ore carries some copper. A  shoot of high grade copper- ore was  next encountered, which is several feet  in width and has been driven on for  30 feet. No assays of the ore have  yet been made, but the 'strike is  thought to be of considerable importance by the management of the mine.  A skip is being rigged up so that the  ore from the new find can be dumped  from the skip into the cars.���Nelson  News.  . Thirteen Feet of Snow.  Winters are long in Phoenix,but the  snoyvfall is not as heavy as in Ross  land," a total of 17 feet of the "costly,"  as the railways put it this year, having  been precipitated there this winter. In  Phoenix the record is said to total a  little over 13 feet, which is slightly in  excess of last year's fall; For the last  three or four weeks it has been snowing the greater part of the time, but  now that the weather has finally  changed for the better, the beautiful  will disappear rapidly, and we may soon  hear of fears of floods from our friends  in' the valleys. But there can be no  fear of floods in Phoenix.  Latest Prices in Metalts.  New Yobk���Copper, electrolytic, $12.-  60�� $12.75; lake, $12.75@ $13.00.  Bar Silver, 57%  Lead, $4.60.  AFFAIRS OST  SNOlSHOE  DIED AT THE HOSPITAL.  Pneu  Some  ProbaBilities  in  That  Connection.  MIGHT SUFJfK TffNORTBPQBT  -_lr  Mitt Great Northern Branch t��  Phtcalz la  Coapleted-ffe Oiflclal^SUteauat Made  At Yet.  With the Snowshoe mine thoroughly developed to a points where 100,-  000 tons of ore, more or less, are  blocked out and ready tb be- broken  down and shipped; with, the mine completely equipped with wtodern machin-  ety, bunk and boarding houses, three  sidetracks and large ore bins; with the  men interested capable, {from a financial standpoint, of carrying out any undertaking they may decide upon; with  the ore containing some of the highest  average values, of anyiow itjrade properties in the Boundary,, that can be  made to yield a fair'profit-���taking all  these facts into V consideration, it is  hardly to be expected'^lat^the .Snow-  shoe mine will be allowed to. remain  idle for any extended length of time.  When the Snowshoe suspended operations on the r6th of last December, it  was given out ,to be until arrangements  for doing their own smelting were completed, shipping to a custom smelter  for a mine of this size and importance,  not being satisfactory to the management, after an extended experience.  Negotiations were then in progress for  the consolidation of the British Columbia Copper Co., owning the Mother  Lode mine and smelter,'and the Snow-  shoe Gold and Copper Mines, Ltd.  Last summer F. W. Thomas, engineer,  and F, L_ UndCTwood/d^dent.of the  B. C. Copper Co., spent several days  examining and sampling the Snowshoe  and Supt. Astley, of the. Snowshoe,  also examined the Mother Lode properties.  It was thought by both sides that  the temporary -agreement would be  confirmed by the shareholders ofthe  two companies, but for some reason  not made puhlic the negotiations were  broken off about a month ago and the  deal declared off.  The Mother Lode people are continuing shipping about 500 tons of ore  daily, and smelting the same, as before,  but the question arises, in. the public  mind as to what the Sndwshoe management proposes to do./ Possibly a  clue may be found in the speech made  to the LeRoi shareholders by A. J.  McMillan, the managing director of  the LeRoi and also of the.Snowshoe.  It will de remenbered that Mr. McMillan refered to a cable that he had  just received from J. J. Hill, of the  Great Northern, to the effect that he  expected to begin work oh thePhoenx  branch as soon as the snow went away.  Mr. McMillan also explained that the  Great Northern, rails at present, were  25 miles away from the Snowshoe  mine. This, of course, is well known  to Boundary peoyle and probably to  Snowshoe shareholders, but is it of  special interest to LeRoi shareholders?  Let us see. It appears that the  LeRoi smelter, with six furnaces, at  Northport, finds it necessary to buy  flux to mix with LeRoi ores, the flux  being barren. This is quite an item  of expense with little or no return.  The Snowshoe ore is said to be ol just  the right character to flux with Ross-  lond ores and it has good copper and  gold values, as well. As Both George  S. Waterlow and A. J. McMillan are  on the LeRoi board, as well as on the  Snowshoe board, it would seem to be  a logical outcome of the situation that  Snowshoe ores should be treated at  the LeRoi's smelter, when the Great  Northern railway reaches Phoenix.  The C. P. R. lines, of course, do not  reach Northport.  Of course, it will be some months  before Mr. Hill's line, is completed to  Phoenix. What will the Snowshoe do  in the meantime, or will it lie idle? It  may be that the new Morrison-Sunset  combination, if it does not secure the  Brooklyn group, will be only too glad  to secure Snowshoe ores on such a  basis that will make it worth while for  ; the Snowshoe to ship again to the  Boundary Falls smelter.  HeroMt Leake  Patted Away  From  moola Last Sunday.  ' Herman Leuke, a miner, who was  admitted to the Phoenix General Hospital but five days previously, suffering  from pneumonia, died in that institution last Sunday. Other complications  developed, and he could not withstand  the ravages of the disease. I^euke  came to Phoenix just a month before  he died, from'Sandon, in ordet to escape the danger from snowslides prevalent there every spring. He had  been employed in this camp before,  and was well known as a frugal man,  having a bank account. He was about  40 years of age, a native of Westphalia, Germany, where he now has a  sister or cousin living.  The funeral was held Tuesday  morning at the Catholic church bf  Our Lady, of Good Counsel, Rev.  Father Bedard officiating. Being a  member of Phoenix Miners' No. 8,  that'organization attended in a body,  and escorted the remains to the Phoenix city cemetery, where the burial  took place.  Leuke had been in the Kootenays  and Boundary for a number of years,  and prospected in many camps. He  is said to have had some promising  claims on Goat creek, ^not far from  Sanca on Kootenay lake.*  NEWSPAPER MEN HONORED.  Chosca Officials of Interior Liberal  Council  : at Rowland.  Two journalists, well known in the  Kootenays, were honored this week by  being chosen president and secretary  of the Interior District Liberal Coun  cil, which held its second annual  gathering at Rossland. The officials  chosen for the ensuing year were as  follows:  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, the  Liberal candidate for Yale-Cariboo,  president; John A. Turner, Nelson,  vice-president; F. E. Simpson, Cranbrook, secretary-treasurer^, executive  committee, R. D. Kerr, Greenwood;  VV. H. P: ClemenVGrand^Forks; Dr.  Kerr, Rossland; Archibald J. Campbell, Ymir; F. J. Deane, Nelson; E.  A.

There were 22 delegates present at  the meeting, representing the following places: Keremeos, Kaslo, Cranbrook, Ymir, Greenwood, Creston,  Trail, Nelson and Rossland.  TWO WOULD LIKE TO BE CHIEF.  James McArdle and J. B. Boone File Applications with Council.  At Wednesday evening's council  meeting there were present Mayor  Rumberger and Aldermen Boyle,  Birnie, and Delahay. The mayor reported receiviug a lettter from the provincial secretary, saying that the re-  comendation for two new members of  the board of police commissioners had  been referred to the attorney-general,  who would give it attention at once.  Two applications for the position of  chief of police, from J. B. Boone and  James McArdle, were received and referred to ,the police board.  Instructions were given to the city  clerk to notify the water company that  if the hydrants were not at once cleared of snow and ice, the city would attend to it. The following accounts  were ordered paid: Isaac Crawlord,  school account, $6.35; N. Lemieux,  street work, $16.50; J.Smith, cleaning  jail, $3-   Methodist Church Social.  Wednesday evening a social was  given at Hardy hall by the members  and friends of the Methodist church,  there being over 125 people present.  The feature of the evening was the  brief address by Rtv.Baer, an eloquent  clergyman from Nelson. Mrs. Knott  was accompanist for the musical numbers, and following the short program  refreshments were served by the  Ladies' Aid of the church. The program was as follows, the net proceeds  being donated to the building fund of  the church:  1. Orchestra Selection���Mrs. D.Dean,  Mrs. J.   Miller,   Mrs.   Knott, C.  Pinker, T. Green.  2.

MOKBISON AND SUNSET COHJHMATWN  Stroor Belief, However, That DaoiilM Capper Compaay Will Retame Work Thla  Spriif or Saasmer.  No definite report has as yet been  received that the Dominion Copper  Co. has joined the Morrison-Sunset  consolidation of interests, some details  of which were given last week. The  new $5,000,000 corporation, called  the Montreal & Boston Consolidated  Mining and Smelting Co., Ltd., takes  in the Morrison and Sunset group of  mines in Deadwood camp and the  Boundary Falls smelter. Besides the  Brooklyn group, owned by the Dominion Copper Co., in this camp, the pro-  motors of ihe new consolidated corporation are' said to be negotiating  with other Boundary mine owners, the  company having $3,300,000 in stock  in the treasury for this purpose and to  enlarge the smelter and add a converter.  Apparently, however, a good deal  depends on the action of the Dominion Copper Co., as the ores of the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder mines are  needed immediately to get the smelter  furnaces in operation once more. The  ores of the Morrison and Sunset group  separately or together, will not furnish  a tonnage of the requisite quality or  quantity. Besides this, the Morrison  has no railway spur as yet.  Those in the Boundary in a position  to know best think that, even if the  Dominion Copper Co. does not go into the combination, the'Brooklyn and  Stemwinder will be operated this spring  orsummer. Should the deal be con  sumniated, James Breen.will doubtless  have entire charge bf the smelting interests of the new corporation.  The Montreal & Boston Consolidated was formed in Ontario, by the  same interests as control the Montreal  & Boston Copper Company. Those  interests include H. H. Melville of  Boston, vice-president of the Great  Northern railway of Canada; J. W.  Allison of New York, president of the  National Leather company; J. N.  Greenshields, of Montreal, president  of the Shawinigan Water and Power  Company; William Mitchell, Montreal_  president of the Pennsylvania Coal  Company of Canada; Thomas Crockett,  Riviere du Loupe, Canada, wholesale  lumber merchant: Col. G. Creighton  Webb, of Saunders, Webb & Worcester, attorneys, New York; Delancy  Nicoll, of Nicoll, Anable & Lindsey,  attorneys, New York; W. A. Beal, of  W.'A. Beal & Co., Boston; W.N.  Coler, Jr., banker, New York; Charles  M. Jessup, president Eastern Trust  Company, New York; John Macdiar  mid, wholesale wood and coal merchant, Montreal, and John F. Plum-  mer, capitalist of New York.  Of the properties now owned by the  new company, the Sunset group, adjoining the Mother Lode mine, has  shipped about 25,000 tons of ore-  which, however, is largely used for  fluxing purposes, the values being very  low. The mine has a good machinery  plant and every convenience for. shipping. The Morrison, which has had a  checkered career, is generally well  thought of as a mine, but needs a railway spur and larger machinery plant  to operate it on a large scale. About  3,500 tons of ore have been shipped  from the Morrison, all of which was  hauled on wagons to the railway.  Further developments in regard to  this combination, which may be of no '���  small importance  to   the   Boundary  country, are awaited with a good deal '  of interest. ��� '  Cartltf Clah'a Auaal Bait  At a meeting held this week it was  decided by those interested to   hold  the second annual ball of the Phpenixj ,  Curling Club on the evening of Easter  Monday, April 4th, Miners' Union hall  having been secured for the occasion."  The   Presbyterian   ladies   postponed"  their   "Poverty   Soshul,"   which had^  been set for this date, till April   12th, j  by special request.    Following is the)  membership of the reception commit-'  the for the ball: R. B. Boucher, M.D.,'  Isaac Crawford, G. W. Rumberger and ..  J. A.  Morrin.   The floor committee  will consist of O.B. Smith,: Jr., C. L.  Thornber, James Marshall and E. P.  Shea,    Arrangements are being made f  to serve refreshments during the inter- ,  mission. '1  Jaaplst To Coacliuloas.  Referring   to   the   coal and coke  blockade at the East   Kootenay   col- ,  lieries, occasioned  by slides on the .  railway, the Fernie  Free  Press in its i  last week's issue states that one result  is the closing of the Boundary smelters'. ,  This is news to Boundary residents,  as for months   without  interruption,  eight furnaces in the Boundary have ���  been operating to the fullest capacity, .  these being at the Mother Lode and  Granby smelters.   The   two. at   the  Boundary Falls smelter only, closed .  down because the ore supply was cut  off when the shipments  of ore from- -  the Snowshoe mine were discontinued-  Visit of Arcbdeacoa.  The Venerable Archdeacon H. Beer,  of the Kootenay diocese of the Anglican church, was a visitor in Phoenix  last Wednesday. It was the first time  that Rev. Beer, whose home is in  Kaslo, had been in the Boundary,  where he also virited Grand Forks and  Greenwood. Rev. Wood, of St. John's ,  church, showed Mr. Beer around Phoenix, and Wednesday evening special  services were Held at the Anglican  church, after which the archdeacon  met those interested in the work of the  Church of England in this city.  Qoce to The Omineca.  Kenneth J. Matheson, a brother of  City Clerk Matheson, started this week  for the Omineca country, in the northern part of the province. He went  by way of Vancouver, whence he takes  boat up the Skeena river to Hazelton,  and thence 200 miles to the interior.  Nine years ago he was in that district  and discovered a ledge that carried  $100 in silver. The place is now believed to be on the route of the Grand  Trunk Pacific, and Mr. Matheson has  gone to make locations there, if not  too late. He will be absent from  civilization for several months.  Sltaatlon Wanted.  Wanted situation as waitress in,first  class house or hotel. Experienced.  State wages. Miss A. Jackson, Vernon, B. C.

'  i  The tendency of medical science is toward'preventive measures. '-The best  thought of the world is being given to  the pubjeot. It is easier and better to  prevent than to cure. It has been fully  demonstrated lhat pneumonia, one- of  the most dangerous diseases that medi  cal men have to contend with, fan be  prevented by the use of Chamberlain's  Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always results from a,cold oran attack of'influenza  ���grip, and 't has been observed that  t..is 'eiiieuy counteracts any tendency of  t ic-pc tiseasea toward pneumonia. Tl if  has been fuily proven in many thousands of rn��es in which this remedy  has been used during the great prevalence of colds and grip in ncont years!  and can be relied upon with implicit  confidence. Pneumonia often results  from a slight cold uhen no danger is ap-'  prihended until it is suddenly discovered  that there is fever and difficulty in  breatHing and pains in the client, theii  it is announced that the patient liar  hnemonm.
