FINE RECORD  OFSKYURK  Shipped $15,000 Worth of Ore  In Four Months.  And the Mine Looks Better  Than Ever.  '�����  ���MQmMM4<MMft<Mro��maR��  We have just received a  large stock 01 Brushes for  spring trade.  To have made payments of $6,000  on the bond, meet all expenses of  mining and marketing and still have a  goodly   balance  in  the  treasury���all  within four months���is a record that few  mines in the Boundary or elswhere can  show.   And yet this is just what has  been done by the Skylark Development Co., Ltd., which is so successfully operating the Skylark mine in the  camp of the same name,  about two  miles and a half from Phoenix.  Learning this, the Pioneer man  decided to visit this mine���which  was  one"ofthe~first to bring the  Boundary  to the iront a dozen years  ago���and  see for himself what is going on in that  locality.    It should  be   remembered,  incidentally, that  the  former owners  of the Skylark thought that they had  worked the mine out���gutted  it,  in  fact���-and for that reason stopped work  on the property  in 1898.    Doubtless  they are not a little' surprised at the  excellent record the mine has already  made   under' the ��� present    practical  management.  On arrival this week at the property  with the vice-president of the company,  Dr. R..B. Boucher, the Pioneer man  was at once, taken m hand by Foreman  Rowe and shown all through the property, as Thos. W. Lawson would say,  from headlight to rear-end lantern.  Being somewhat used to ore bodies  in the low grade mines that are measured in scores of feet," the rich ruby  silver veins ofthe Skylark, running in  thickness from four to eighteen inches,  did not seem large. But results are  what count, and this $100 ore or better makes a showing on the treasurer's  books at the end of each month that  makes the shareholders quite content  with the way things are progressing at ore shipments.  So far about 700 feet of development  has been done at the Skylark all told,  and it is still going,on with good results. The main shaft ii down about  80 feet on an incline, at which level  there are several hundred feet of drifting both north and south. About 40  feet from the shafc an incline winze is  being sunk, and is now down about 25  feet and has reached tbe ore body  which was lost by the former management years ago. Not only has good  ore been found here, but in the several  drifts the vein has, been picked up and  ore is being sent out regularly. It is  believed to a statement of fact that the  Skylark today looks better than ever in  its history, with more ore in sight.  In   equipment  the  Skylark  has a  hoist and boiler for the main shaft, and  another hoist for the winze. One steam  drill is operated, which is  supplemented by hand drilling.    Foreman  Rowe  has a force of eighteen men at work,  and is operating the mine on  double  shift.    When shipping is  being done,  two four horse  teams are  kept  busy  hauling the ore to  the railway station.  In the past Skylark  ore  has given  some excellent returns.    In 1893 shipments returned from 150 to 300 ounces  in silver and $15 to $20 in gold,  and  the first class ore today gives quite as  good returns, even though the price of  silver is about half what   it  was then.  Cars of first class  ore' have yielded  from $100 to $140 per  ton,  and  the  second and third class ore gave from  $35 to $40 per ton.    The ore  has all  been sent  to either the   Granby or  Nelson smelters.  The Skylark Development Co. has  $250,000 capital, in dollar share",  nearly half of which is in the treasury.  It has been in operation less than six  months, and the mine looks, so well  and the returns so satisfactory that the  stock has been practically withdrawn  from the market. Since stai ting, in  October, 222 tons have been shipped  up to this week, bringing in the com-  fortabl. sum of about $15,000���or an  average of $70 per .ton. Of this 100  tons was shipped in one month. A  number of improvements have been  made, including a comfortable boarding house, etc. The officers of the  company are:President,A.B. W.Hodges;  vice-president, Dr. R. B. Boucher;  manager O. B. Smith, Jr.; secretary-  treasurer, A. B. W. Hood.; The bond  on the property was for $30,000, and  two payments have been made, the  second one several weeks before it was  due���and the money all came from  The Skylark  was lo-  At   the--first session   in.nearly a  month, the city council  was ,favored  Wednesday evening ' with   the   presence oi numerous   ratepayers, who I  were interested in the proceedings of |  the city  piers.     Mayor Rumberger  In the Providence mine the lead has  been encountered at the 400 foot  level.  J. C. Haas, M. E., has started operations on the Golconda in Deadwood  camp.  Work  has  been  resumed  on   the  Moonshine, near Anaconda, by XV. S.  J McDonald.  The Great Northern is now taking  out 28 cars, or over 800 tons of Granby ore daily.  At the Gold Bug the tunnel is in  about 25 feet. A steam drill will shortly be installed.  Four of the six furnaces at the Granby smelter are now operated with the  electrical automatic charger,  As soon as the machiney is received  BRINGING IN  6,000 Ii. P.  From   Bonnington   Falls   to  " Boundary.  Contracts With Granby  B. C. Copper.  and  and Aids. Brown, Roderick and Bir  nie were present, and the session was  an extended one.  City Cleik Matheson was directed  to notify the chief engineer of the V.,  V. & E. railway that the School street  bridge which he built was closed, and  needed repairs to the approaches at  once, and the high sidewalk likewise,  By-law No. 52, establishing the  grade on First street at the bridge, was  read the last time and became law  while the committee on Silverthorne's  claim for damages was requested to  present its report in writing.  It was decided to build a sidewalk  on Old Ironsides avenue from Second  street to the C. P. R. depot, and also  on Phoenix and Cimeron streets, to  the city limits towards the Great Northern depot. The city clerk was directed to return the assessment roll for  1905 to the council by the 26th of  April, and the B. C. Telephone Co.  was notified that the fire alarm service  was not in order, and that the several  large poles now blocking up Dominion  avenue be set on end or taken off the  the street.  J. B. Macaulay was given permission  to build a cesspit under the sidewalk  at Black's hotel, subject to the Health  Act, and Alderman Roderick gave  notice of introduction of the much  needed Curfew By-law.  A petition from the directors of the  Phoenix General Hospital was ��� read,  asking for financial aid to that worthy  and deserving institution. J. L. Martin,  the secretary, was present and addressed the council and said he  was ready to answer any questions.  Aid. Roderick expressed himself as  opposed to making a grant to thu hos  pital, and moved to give the matter a  six months'hoist, which was done, and  the matter disposed of for the .time  being.  Then Arthur Wheeler, of the Victoria Times, on invitation addressed  the council, asking that the six months'  hoist regarding his proposition for the  city to take $75 worth of advertising  in the 50,000 48 page issue to be  published in July, be reconsidered,  The council listened but declined to  reconsider the hoist made  a  month  diamond drill operations on the deep  levels of the Mother Lode mine will  be undertaken.  A four foot vein of ore was recently struck in the Non Such, one of the  Republic group in Smith's camp,, and  largely owned by W. T. Smith.  All previous records for one week's  ore shipments from Boundary mines  are again shattered this week, the total  for seven days running over 22,000  tons.  Alex Munroe, of the firm of Munroe & Munroe, of Montreal and New  York, promotors of the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated, is spending a  few days in the Boundary.  J. E. McAllister, superintendent of  the B. C. Copper Co. smelter at Greenwood, returned~Sunday from a several  weeks' visit to New York, in connection  with the doubling ofthe furnace capacity of the plant.  Dr. J. E. Spankie has bonded from  Messrs. Rendell, Taylor and Paton,  all of Greenwood, the Prince Henry  and Abercraig mineral claims lying  half a mile east of the city hall, and  has begun work thereon.  Three carloads of machinery for the  enlargement at the Granby smelter  have already arnved from Chicago,  and more are expected shortly. The  two new furnaces are expected to be in  operation by July, if not sooner.  Preparations are being made for the  starting of active operations at the  Stemwinder mine, one of the Brooklyn group. Air for several drills will  be taken from the Granby pipe line,  while the hoist in the incline shaft will  be operated by steam.  Frank Buckless, who has the contract, this week hauled two cars of Skylark ore |o the railway for shipment to  the Granby smelter. This makes over  a hundred tons shipped by this mine  this month, and a like amount is expected to go out during April. The  shaft is being deepened another, hun-  ago.  On recommendation ofthe finance  committee, the following accounts  were ordered paid:  Mclntyre & McDonald .$ 11 00  Dr. G. S. Gordon. ....    26 50  Phoenix Livery Stable      . 7 00  A. E.

Statement  Made by   General  Manager Graves.  "Profits of $100,000 a month are  being made by the Granby mints,"  said J. P. Graves, manager of the big  Boundary corporation, in Spokane last  Saturday.  "The Granby company has a reserve  of $500,000 on hand, counting cash,  coke, supplies and copper products in  transit. The mine is producing copper for 9 cents a pound. AVhen the  two new furnaces are running ia July,  the present capacity of about 2100  tons a day will be increased 35 per  cent.  "Granby issued some new stock recently to supply $70,000 for buying  the Tamarack and the Missing Link.  Except for that no new stock has been  issued for a long time. The issued  capital is about $13,500,000. The  stock has been exceedingly active in  Boston around $6.25, and associates  there write me lhat still further ad-  xances are expected."  YOUNG BOYS USE  GIANT POWDER  And Attempt to Blow Up the  School House.  Last Monday night an attempt was  made to blow up the school house  with giant powder, a portion of a stick  being actually placed under one corner  of the building and exploded. Fortunately, but little damage was done  beyond blowing on" a few boards, and  skaking up things in Miss Moffat's  room.  Suspicion pointed to two boys of 14  or 15 years, who had been playing  truant, Tommy Oxley and Tommy  Watkin, and they were taken into cus  tody,by the chief of police. After a  time in durance vile, they were brought  before Police Magistrate Williams, and  given a severe lecture, and rather than  send them to the reform school, were  allowed to go on suspended sentence  if they would attend school and report  weekly to the judge.  It is said that the boys secured the  powder from the Brooklyn mine, and  seemed to think their school days  would be over for a time if the school  house was put out of business. There  was no desire on the part of the school  trustees to be hard on the boys, but a  term in the reform school or penitentiary will undoubtedly quickly follow  similar attempts.  Last week some boys broke into the  old assay office at the Snowshoe mine,  but were discovered, and little damage  was done.  '���A' John Riordan, who has been secretary of Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8  since its organization, five and a half  years ago, left with Mrs. Riordan on  Monday for Chicago, where he has accepted a position with the American  Labor Union in the office department.  Mr. Riordan made many friends in  Phoenix and the Boundary while a  resident here, and was popular with  the members of the unions generally,  who regret to see him leave. Last  Saturday evening a reception was tendered to Mr. and Mrs. Riordan, and  Miners' Union Hall was crowded by  the large number of friends and acquaintances of the couple. Refreshments were served and an address  given to Mr. Riordan, and responses I  made, the evening closing with dancing. {  It is estimated that the Granby and  B. C. Copper C. are out from $50,000  to $r00,000 on account of the shortage of power last winter, when the  water was so low in the Kettle river  that the Cascade' Water, Power &  Light Co. could deliver but 2,000  horse power when 3,000 was" needed,  and consequently was unable - to fulfil  contracts, let alone supply the demand  above contract.  It was not conceivable that the  managements of these companies would  Ie' themselves get into this position  another season, and it was known that  efforts were being made to avoid it, -in  view of the self-evident fact that the  Cascade people could not supply sufficient power at low water. Seemingly  there was but one place to secure additional power, and that from Bonnington Falls on the Columbia river," 12  miles from Nelson, and about 75 miles  from Boundary's large mines. This is  what has been done, as tbe following  from the Nelson News of Tuesday last  shows:  L. A. Campbell arrived in the city  last night from the Boundary country.  Aaked what the activity at Bonnington  just now really meant, Mr, Campbell  replied with something more than hie  usual energy:  "We are minding our own business.  We are not trying to down the city of  Nelson or the people who live here,"but  we are going in for legitimate business  on a much larger scale than hitherto.   I  have just concluded contracts with the  B. C. Copper Co. and the Granby Consolidated on behalf of the West Kootenay Power & Light Co. to supply 4,500  horBe power.   The power company intends to develop the upper Bonnington  falls for 2<M)00 horse power hydrauJically  and install a generator and water wheel  capacity of 12,000 horse powers There '  will also be erected duplicate Dole lines  from Bonnington to Greenwood.   Each  line will have a capacity of 6,000 horse  power and the voltage which these lines  will carry will be 60,000 volts.  "On account of improved machinery,  and aleo on account of the present plant  being developed for a minimum of 34  foot head, the power company found  that if they were to develop further  power under this head, that it would be  an utter impossibility to supply the surrounding smeltere and mines with power. Therefore, after most careful consideration, the power company decided ;  to develop the upper falls and obtain  there a working head of 58 feet. The  increase of speed in machinery decreases  the first coat to the consumer arid therefore we are in a position to supply cheap  power to all wanting it, and so materially advance the mining and smelting  interests ofthe Kootenays.  "The prices we are willing to give  power for and ai a fact have already contracted to do so, will effect an immense  saving in the smelting of "ores, and also  makes it a question whether or not it  will pay to continue the experiments on  the concentration problem. If the smelter companies will take advantage of the  exceedingly low'rates we are prepared  to offer once our increased plant is in  operation, they can afford to materially  reduce their treatment charges to the  mines, and it is not difficult to see how  greatly this would benefit the whole  mining country hereabouts."

The above was printed in the Kaslo  Kootenaian of last week, but, as far as  can be learned there is no hasis for the  statement. On the contrary, it is a  fact that the C.P.R. is putting on train  crews occasionally. The truth is that  there is more business to handle in the  Boundary than ever before. From  Phoenix alone the C.P.R. handles 5c  to 60 ca<s of ore daily, to say nothing  of the Great Northern also taking out  '.bout 25 airs per day.  Ml  C.P.R. officials themselves expected  to lose a goodly share of the passenger  traffic when the Great Northern  reached Phoenix, and they have not  peen disappointed in this respect.  When one can save a whole day in  travelling from the Boundary to coast  points over the Great' Northern, passengers can hardly be expected to take  the louger route. It is a fact that until the C.P.R. gets a shorter route from  the Boundary to the coast, they will  get the small end of the passenger  business.  One reason why there is more business for the railways running into the  Boundaiy today than ever before is  the fact that the three district smelters  are being operated steadily at the full  capacity of the ten'blast furnaces. In  addition to the about 3,000 tons of ore  daily required to feed these furnaces,  the amount of coke required is of  course increased, as well as the amount  of blister copper produced, which must  be hauled across the continent to the  refineries. This all makes business,  and good business, for the railways.  Consequently, although the Great Northern is now in the field and doing  business, the traffic has increased so,  and will further increase in the near  future, that it does not materially affect the C.P.R. except to give that railway still mor? business than in the  past.

Pneumonia is too dangerous -a disease for anyone to attempt to doctor  himself, although ho may have the pro-  perremediesat hand. A physicianshould  always be called. I (should beborne in  mind, however, that pneumonia  always results from a cold or from an  attack of the grip, and by the proper  treatment of these diseases a threatened  attack of pneumonia may be warded  off. There is no question whatever  about this as during the thirty years or  more that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been used, we bave yet to learn  of a single case of a cold or attack of  the grip having resulted in pneumonia  when this remedy was used. It is also  used by physicians in the treatment of  pneumonia with the best results. Dr.  YV, J. Smith, of Sanders, Alta., who  is also a druggist, says: "I have been  selling Chamberlain's Cough Remedy  and prescribing it in my practice for  the past six years. I use it in cases  of pneumonia and have alwaws gotten  the best results." For sale by ~"  druggists.  all  Sunday evening the excursionists returned from Spokane over the Great  Northern, much pleased with the manner in which they had been treated by  the railway company and the business  men generally of Spokane. Tn evtry  way the trip was a success, and it is  hoped and expected that a little later  the Spokane Chamber of Commerce  will arrange for an excursion from that  city to Phoenix. At the dinner given  to: the excursionists in Spokane, Mayor  Rumberger,who had just arrived there  from the east, responded to the address of welcome by Mayor Boyd of  Spokane. Julius Ehflich, of Greenwood, also made a few remarks, and  so did J. L. Martin, of Phoenix., Mr.  Martin, among other things, said:  ����  "We think the Boundary is the  ���greatest place in the world. The word  sounds to us just like tlie'Inland Empire sounds to Spokane people. When  the Inland Empire is mentioned we  think of just one word���Spokane.  When the Boundary is mentioned  everyone thinks of just one word  ���Phoenix." All of which is well  known here, of course.  �����  Mayor Rumberger, who returned  Sunday from his seven weeks' trip to  eastern points, was glad to get back to  the Boundary again. While absent he  visited Chicago, Toronto, New York,  and his old home in Pennsylvania, his  brother, Amos, formerly a resident  here, now being engaged in business at  Houtzdale, Penn. Mr. Rumberger  states that the weather in the east was  much worse than anything he had ever  experienced in the Boundary. The  snow and rain were the worst in years  all through the east, so that his worship longed for the balmy climate of  the boundless Boundary.  ��u ' ���  Of course, the lloundary does not  produce much lead, still the lead contents of the ore from the high grade  mines are an item. This lead is refined at tlie Trail refinery, and much  of it sold in the Orient. Most of the  lead ore, of course, comes from the  Slocan or East Koot'.nay. Lead miners, however, as they dig out the precious metal with which the lead is associated, can remember that the lead  will doubtless be used by the Japanese  with which to fill the Russians in the  terrible war in the far East.

I^hard-Vaughanwent to Vancou-'  Tuesday morning an accident happened at the Granby mines, from the  effects of which the victim, John Rundquist, died at the hospital just 36 hours  1 later, although everything possinle was  done to save the unfortunate man's  life.  Rundquist was a mucker boss in the  No. 3 tunnel level of the mine, where  the electric trolley  line is operated.  Some heavy ore cars had   become derailed, and Rundquist assisted in  putting them on the steel again.    In  this  work his leg was caught  between  the  bumpers of the locomotive and one of  the cars, and crushed to a jelly at  the  knee.    He was at once taken to the  hospital, where the leg was amputated  by Dr. Boucher, assisted by Drs. Gordon and Foster.    It was  hoped  that  the man would rally,  but  the shock  was too great and at eight o'clock-  Wednesday evening he expired.   The  accident occured early Tuesday morning.  Rundquist   was   a young man of  about  25  years, and had   been em  ployed here about a year when  the  accident happened, having come from  Michigan.   .He was unmarried, with a  brother in Michigan or Wisconsin and  a sister in California, who have been  notified of his death.    The funeral will  be held today  under the auspices  of  the local miners' union, of which  deceased was a member.    Members of  the miners' union are asked to meet at  Clark & Binns' undertaking parlors at  1.30, and escort the remains to the  union's hall, where   services  will be  held, 'Rev.
