POST OFFICE STORE  LARGEST IN ALL CANADA.  Sixty Drill Air Compressor Ordered Yesterday by the Granby Co.,  Run by Electric Power from Cascade  (.encr'alManager Jay P. Graves, of the Gianby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power Co., Ltd.,  yesterday decided to order at once what will undoubtedly be the largest air compressor ever built or installed in a  mine or elsewhere in the Dominion of Canada. It will be used in the'Granby Co.'s mines in Phoenix. The new  compressor will require about six months to build, will be opeiated by electricity, and uhei. in running order "will  have cost the Granby Co. in the neighborhood of #80,900. This interesting piece of news was given to the  Pioiieer yesterday by Mr. Giaves himself, and is therefore official. '  litis,made a two yeans' contract with the Cascade company  for at least 1.500 borne power,' to be delivered here, and it  iscertain that much more power than this will be 'utilized,  a; the smeller will use some, Urnl the mines at Phoenix  will be lighted Irom the saint: source, as well aa the city of  Phoenix.  It is anticipated that it will require about six rnoitths for  the manufacture of tlie newniacliinery just ordered, and  tljttt it will lie installed gome time next fall, probably by  November. As _oon as nlans can be drawn, work on the  excavation for the compressor bouse will be undertaken,  and the foundation, put in. The house will be located a  few hundred feet from t ;e new shaft,'which is to be the  permanent working shaft for the .mines, and winch will  eventually be five compartment, in width.  100,000 Ton Ore Contract.  .'Another important departure from previous methods is  being considered by the Granby Co., and will probably be  decided upon shortly. That is the getting out ofthe surface ore by contract. Thursday night Johnson A. Porter,  of the well knowncmtrarting firm of Porter Bros., arrived  in the camp, with his superintendent, F. C. Baker, of  Pandon. to close up the details of ^contract for taking out  100,000 tons of ore for Ihe Gianby Co., from the surface or  glory hole?, as they are called.  .The Porter Bros., are one of the oldest and most reliable  firms of contractors in the northwest, and ttiis contract,  if .closed, as seems likely, will be in the nature of an experiment on the part of the Granby Co.  > Mr. Porter, in talking to the Pioneer man, stated that  it'was his in'ention, as it had always been their custom in  the past, for the firm to employ only union labor in the execution of this construct.. ".Just when he ��vill begin, or  when the contract will be definitely settled, is not known  as the Pioneer goes to press.  Many Machinery Men Here.  for the last several days electric and mining machinery  mru have been congregating in Phoenix, for the put pose  of bidding on what will prove to be tbe largest nir compressor yet ordered or built, not only in the Boundary  country it British Columbia, but Ihe iargest in the  flouiinion of Canada, so far as is yet known. The following companies were represented:  J mc8 Cooper M/g. Co., Ltd., of Montreal, by ft. A O.  MrNally, of Rowlaml; Canrdian Raid Diill Co., .Siier-  b'Ooke, Que.,, by R. P. Williams, of Greenwood; Allis-  Chalmers Co., Chicago, by S. S. Sjiiylef, of Spokane;  We. tii.glinuse Electric Co., Pittsburgh, J'n., by A. A.  Miller, of Seattle; Canadian General Electric Co., Montreal  bv L A. Campbell, of Ro.sland.  After due consideration Mr. Graves and bis associates  decided to,order the gigantic compressor of the Canadian  Rand Drill Co.. Ltd.,,subject to the details being agreed  upon. The electric machinery was not ordered yesterday,  but will be attended to later.  In securing tlie order there wasconsi lerable competition  between the several companies represented, as the Granby  Co. want only the very best and most up-to-date machines,  practicability and lasting qualities being more important  than tlie price.  Built In Two Section*.  The new compressor will be. of1 the latest improved  Corliss duplex type, and will be built in two sections of 30  drills each, so that they can be inn separately or together,  as desired. Kaeh half will be operated by a 700 home  power dynamo, the power being obtained from the Cascade  Water, Powerand Light Co., 'Ltd.,- of Cascade, 22 miles  distant, the lines of which are now. almost completed to  Plioenix.  For the purpose of securing this power the Granby Co. i  PROVIDENCE  j the balance on the bond.

From the indications it appears that  the Providence will prove to be a  great mine.  For the New Snowshoe Compressor.  As foreshadowed in last week's  Pioneer, a deal was made for the  Providence mine last Saturday in  Greenwood, by which William Fowler,  who holds the$io,ooo bond on the  mine, sells a half interest to a number  of Greenwood men, together with one  from Spokane, for $25,000. Thesiim  of $8,000was paid in cash, and the  balance of $17,000 is to be paid in  three, six and nine months. Those  who take an interest aie W. M. Law,  Henry V. Mytton, Fred. Whitwell and  others of Greenwood, and E. L. Tate,  of Spokane. The new owneis are reported to have taken possession, and  will push development from now on, a  second car-lo.id being now ready for  shipment to the Greenwood smelter.    I  The Providence, which is located  about two miles from the Greenwood  smelter, was located in 1S92 by Wm.  Hickman, who was grubstaked . by  Howard C. Walters, of Spokane.

Municipal rate by-law No. 36 was  read. The rate is struck as follows:  General, 15 mills; school, 2 mills;  special, 4.98 mills; making a total lax  rate of 2 1 .gS mills on the dollar. A  rebate of one-sixth is allowed if taxes  are paid before August 31st.  The minutes of the court of revision  weie read and approved.  The council authorized the mayor  and city clerk to sign a request to the  water commissioner,  asking   that   the  UT HEAR OF THE BOARDING HOUSE  REDUCED ASSESSMENT BY $2,100.

Even   then   the  returns   were  something like $275 per ton.  Silver dropped out of sight in 1893,  and nothing was done with the property after Mr. Walters discontinued  work on it till last fall, when. Mr.  Fowler took a lease oh it, agreeing to  pay ten per cent, of the smelter returns as a royally, he also taking a  bond at $10,000 at the same time.  Mr. Fowler later took in Fred. Whitwell on the lease, and with work the  claim has latterly shown up exceedingly well. The shipment made to  the smelter recently gave most satisfactory returns, and the property once  more excited a good deal of interest  among local mining men, the deal  above outlined being the result. The  new owners feel confident that they  can soon take out enough ore to pay  As soon as funds are available, the  council ordered a sidewalk to be laid  fiom the McMillan block to the Stem-  winder hotel, on First street.  1). McMillan, the retiring city clerk,  was thanked for his services, having  I held the position since the city became a municipality, and his bonds ot  $2,000 were returned to him.  The Hotel Vendome was recently  completed at Anaconda for J. W.  O'Brien.  Some 50 men were laid off at the  Mother Lode mine this week. The  surface quarries will be drawn on  heavier in the future.  Wednesday night, on orders from  the east, Supt Duncanson laid off all  but two men at the Golden Crown,  but was instructed to keep the pumps  running.  Last Monday the work of clearing  the ground for the foundations for the  new compressor to be installed by the  Snowshoe management, was begun.  The compressor and boilers will be located at the rear ol" the new bunk and  boarding houses, on a level piece of  ground" not far from iheC. P. R. track,  so that a spur for fuel can be put ,in  there with little double. The new  machinery, which was ordered of the  Jenckes Machine Co., Ltd., of Sher-  brook, Quebec, will consist of the first  half of a 30 drill Rand duplex air compressor, with the latest and most approved attachments, together with two  80 horse power boilers, both being  specially adapted for the work intended, and built 10 the order of the Snow-  shoe owners.  The order was placed for this machinery last December, and it is understood that it has now been shipped  from the factory, and is enroutejto  Phoenix. Work on the foundations  lor the machihery, and for the building in which it will be housed, will be  proceeded with at once, as the shipment is expected to arrive in the  course of two or three weeks. The  compressor is so made that another  fifteen drills can be added as soon as  they are wanted.  Great Northern Can Now Build Its Line lito  _-,...  the  Bon.d.ry. ......  The people ' in Grand Forks in  particular and the people of the  Boundary in general were pleassd to  receive the news this week that the  injunction against the V., V. & E;  continuing railway construction into  the Boundary, which was obtained at  the instance of the mauagers of the  kettle Valley Lines, was argued at  Victoria early this week, and dismissed.  .Unless more injunctions crop up,  there is now no opposition or difficulty  about the railway, which is part of the  Great Northern system, finishing its  line to Republic, and also to Phoenix,  according to the surveys, which have  been completed for many months.  The Greenwood delegates, consisting of Ralph Smailes and Duncan  Mcintosh, which went down to the  coast to assist in the good work,  returned last Thursday.  R. A. Hutchins, foreman at the  Mother Lode, is reported to have  resigned this week.  The Boundary Creek License Commissioners wi'l hold a special meeting  at Greenwood next Tuesday.  F"ather Bedard will be pleased to  meet the committee on church building  at the Cottage Hotel Monday, May 5.  Major Ainslie Megraw, of Camp  McKinney, the new incumbent, will  open the sub-recording office at  Beaverdell, up the West l-'ork, next  week,  A farewell reception was tendered  to Rev. I). H. Reid at the Congregational church last evening, Rev. Geo.  1. roadley, the new pastor, also being  present.  As an immediate result of the fast  increasing ore traffic from . the mines  of Phoenix and its neighborhood, the  officials of the C. P. R. have decided  to at once begin the work of extensive  betterments of the company's property  in this locality. During the last year  something of this kind has constantly  been going on, and this year even  more of it will be done. Inasmuch as  the Phoenix branch is said to be the  best paying piece of track owned by  the C. P. R��� from ocean to ocean, the  big railway's officials' are glad to do  this for their own convenience.  Among other, things, more trackage  will be provided for the Granby mines  proper, as well as at the, Phoenix  depot. ; A small round house will be  built, and a turntable or Y will be put  in., These have long been needed,  but when: the new loop at Hartfor/d  Junction, two miles from this city, is  connected with the main track, thereby doing away ,with the switchback at  that point, the other improvements  will probably be completed or well  under way. 'A sidetrack will also be  put in at the Snowshoe, to run back  ofthe site where the new compressor,  soon to arrive, will be erected, arid  other mines, will be'provided with all  the trackage facilities needed. .  All .of these' improvements were  definitely decided on last: Saturday,  when.a large party of ;C. P,R. officials  visited this city, coming in by special  train. The party included Richard  Marpole, Vancouver, general superintendent Pacific division, R. Armisiead,  private secretaiy to Mr. Marpole; II.  J. Cambie, chief engineer; William  Downie, Nelson, superintendent Kootenay and Boundary division; J. Wilson, ,  Vancouver, superintendent of telegraphs; \V. O. Miller, car service an'd  fuel agent; Grant Haii, master mechanic, Revelstoke; R.'A. Bainbridge,  Nelson, engineer Kootenay and Boundary; H. Mclntyre, district inspector,  of telegraphs.  In the course of the next ten days  the new rolling stock for the Boundary  passenger train will begin to arrive. Is  will consist of combination buffet and  parlor cars and first-class passenger  coaches, the formei being the first to  be placed in service.  SEYERAL REAL ESTATE DEALS.  Property    Is    All    Located    on   Dominion  Avenue.  This week four sales of Phoenix  realty were made, in each case the  property being located on Dominion  avenue.  R. B. Kerr sold to G. E. McAuliffc  and Julius S. Carson lot 6, block Gj  West ward. The property is improved  with a one story building thereon, and  is considered desirable in realty circles.  Thursday James Marshall sold to  Donald J. Matheson lot 4, block 5,  West ward, the property being located  on Dominion avenue, below the  Delahay block.  Alexander Gregg the same day sold  the adjoining lot to the above, viz., lot  5, block 5, West ward, to Benjamin  Snell.v It is almost opposite the  present telephone office. In each case  the prices of the above transfers were  not made public.  The members of Boundary Valley  Lodge of I. O. O. F. Greenwood, held  a ball in the Masonic Hall, Wednesday night. There was a numerous attendance and the function was a most  enjoyable one.  Thus far in its history the Granby  smelter has treated 402,677 tons of  ore and the Greenwood smelter has  treated 167,459 tons, making a grand  total of all Boundary smelters to date  of 570,1 36 tons.  Thursday the Grand Forks Driving  Park Association awarded a contract  to Thos. Price for grading its race  track for 23 cents per cubic yard.  There were several tenders, the highest  being 2S cents. The work must be  done in 30 days.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

Comparatively, it is only a few years  since the development of the great  lode mines of British Columbia began.  The first to recognize the possibilities  lying dormant in this so-called sea 0.  mountains were our Yankee cousins.  1 At that time even  Canada's greatest  railway had' no thought of penetrating'  this part of the province, but was only  intent on through traffic. Venturesome  Americans came aud saw and conquered the everlasting  hills,  and  forced  them to give up their wealth.     Many  of them became rich  in  the process,  and opened the eyes of the eastern  Canadians.  Then, when it was seen what could  be done by pluck, energy and brains,  coupled with the needed capital, our  own people began to take hold. They  bought many properties of the Americans, who had already made fortunes  out of mother earth here, and still  others came to prospect and find for  themselves the mineral showings that  might be made to yield a goodly return in due time. Many of them have  done exceedingly well, and, as in other  callings, other have, fiom various  causes, not been so fortunate. The C.  i*. R. began to see that the Kootenays  and Yale had great possibilities in them  for traffic, and in time built branches  through the country, and will yet build  more.  It required time and that paiticular  kind of education that is shown in  dollars and cents results, to convince  our people that the wealth was actually  here. When they realized it was to be  had in the Kootenays they tumbled  over each other to get a share, and  many of them succeeded. Then the  newness of it wore off, and ' oilier  equally promising fields of a similar  kind were sought, when the Uoundaiy  came into prominence through the  building of the C. P. R. into this section.  Bu$, as in the early days, when the  energetic Americans were the fust to  appreciate the mineral riches in the  Kootenays, there were many who believed that the low grade Boundary  ores could not be gotten out of the  bowels of the earth at a profit They  shook their heads and were chary about  investing largely here. Once again it  was necessary for them to be educated  to the fact that the wealth was here,  and that it could be extracted with  pjofit if it was gone $bout in the right  wav.  When the hardy pioneer came lo  the western plains, many onlookers  did not believe he could ciise piofilable  crops on the land. . They waited, and  when the tidiness ol the l.ind uas  proved, they flocked to the new countiy,  to share in its prosperity. S'j it is in  this mining country, and those who  have been the pioneers, with ample  capital and skill, will be the fust to  reap the benefits, although thousands  of others are destined to profit also  Time will woik out the whole pioblem  and in the most satislactoiy maiinei.

MINING NOTES  In  October,   1899,  ihe   Boei   w.n  broke out, and has been  in piogre<-��.  for two years and a half.    Some   Ies  sons are pretty expensive.  It is now given out, as was an tin'  pated, that the Kettle Valley rail��a\  will piobably be extended fiom Re  public to Spokane, and that the entire  system is likely to be taken over b)  the C. P. R.  .What a slight hold the government  has. ,One day last week it was defeat  ed squarely by vote of the opposition,  but the speaker managed to get anothei  vote in to decide the fiist one, and sc  saved the day.  East Yale was allowed $27,500 in  the government estimates, and Ross  land riding���than which there is no  moie important in the piovince���a  paltiy $14,500. This shows tlie ie  suit of a "pull" at Victoria.  For the genuine at tide of a wob  bling government, take a look at the  present choice collection at Victoiia  And, of coiitse, no party can be belt,  to account. Joseph Martin and James  I)unsmuir make a gieat team. HV  guess not.  Kamloops asked Andrew Carnegu  for help to build a sanitaiitim, but th.  canny Scot said nay. Which impels  the Kamloops Standaid to lemail.  "The Loid helps those that help them  selves.    Otheis apply to Carnegie.*'  That unlikely story of last week emanating from Grand Foiks, regardm.:  the consolidation of the Snowshoe and  Brooklyn gioups, appealed in dozen1-  of provincial papers. It might be a  good thing it it turned out to be tnic,  but at the present writing appearances  indicate that the story oiigmated in  some' imaginative conespondent's  brainery.  The Pioneer has received a fineK  gotten up little pamphlet on th-.- "Cow  Pea." It comes all the way from the  Carolinas, the governors of which  states are reputed to say vaiious things  to each other. We ceitainly need Coiv  Peas in Phoenix, and all the other  kinds, but we can hardly make the  growing of them a success, according  to the high standaid of North Carolina.  Last week 8,468 tons ol oie were  shipped 110:11 Rossland mines.  Just 127 tons of Slocan oie were  shipped tluough Kaslo last week.  Ouing to bad loads not a ton of oie  was shipped fiom Slocan City mines  last week.  An English syndicate has been  foi med 10 operate the Wakefield, in  the Slocan,  A lecent shipment fiom the Ruffled  Giouse, l.aideau, netted the owners  $101 per ton.  The Sunset, near Sandon, has netted the owneis $40,000 for the past  nine months, and still has a laige  quantity of oie in sight.'  The final payment on the Eva and  Highland Maiy claims, at Goldfields,  in the Laideau, was made recently bj  the Impeiial Development Syndicate  to A. F. RosEiibeiger, the amount  being $8,000.    .  Last week the first pig lead to be  lefincd in Canada was tinned out at  the new plant recently erected in connection with the Trail smelter. The  iciiuery will shoitly be in complete  wot king older.  EN!X ARIE,  NO. 158.  _\S��.J^<!> ; .5Ni .5. iv^,^.sJ.^IJ^1|><i^j4^iKg<i>4''*  I Our NEW Line of Watches |  t and Chains   . ).

Yours very truly,  \V.  Hl.AKKMOltK,  Consulting Kngineer to tlie Similka-  meen Valley Coal Co., Ltd.  A diamond drill has been secured  jointly by our Com puny anil the Ashnola Coal Company, Limited, and at the  present time being freighted to Ashnola.  A saw and planing mill are already on  the ground and are being put in shape  10 complete ti(e proinisesihai we "have  made through the press to the public,  witii-reference to the establishment of  the City of Ashnola. These promises  made to the public are heiim caniedout  to the letter as fast as ftimls are available. The Brewery Company are already established at Ashnola and have  2000 Ions of ice already put up, preparatory to bediming their operations. 1  merely mention these facts to shew that  we are keeping our faith to tbe public lo  to the best of our ability and erewith  quote my assertion made, which appeals  in our lirst prospectus with reference 10  niv management:  ���'The present management docs nol  intend to incur any liabilities against  the Company beyond the cash on hand  Will Strike Two Hundred sod Ten Blows Per  Minute.  W. \V. Waite of Colfax, Wash., lus  patented a n.w hand drill which he has  on exhibition at Spokane. Mr. Waite  patented the drill about a year ago and  let a contract for its manufacture to  the Jeffery Manufacturing Company of  Columbus, Ohio, but owing to the  -strikes' throughout the east be was un  able to get them on the market last fail  as expected. The first carload will arrive in Spokane aboui May i.  The drill is unique in many respects.  It consists of four four-pound hammers,  on steel handles about 15 inches in  length, attached to a balance wheel  which turns by a crank. At eveiy revolution of the wheel there are four  strokes of the hammer, thus making it  possible to strike 2/0 blows a minute  with little exertion. The weight of the  drill is about 150 pounds, which is an  important tact to be considered where  transportation is difficult. It is claimed that it wiil do the work of from four  to six men, according to the quality  of the rock.  The simplicity of its workings can  perhaps be more readily understood  when it is stated that at every stroke of  the hammets the drill is turned and  held automatically tor the next stroke.  It has exactly the same movement a  miner makes when swinging a hammer,  with the exception of doing away with  the return motion, which ordinarily  consumes about 80 per cent of a man's  energy.  THINqS WORTH KNOWING.  Petroleum has to bear an import tax  in every country in tbe world except  Great Britain and Victoria.  The loss in concentrating the ores  of the Anaconda mine, Montana, is  placed at about eighteen per cent, of  the copper contents,  A cubic foot of water weighs 62.367  pounds at 60 deg. F. It contains  7.4805 U. S. gallons and 6.2321 Imperial gallons. Ordinarily 62yi pounds  are taken as being the weight of a cubic-  foot of water.  An important smelting improvement  has lately been made at the Mountain  Copper Co.'s works at Keswick, Calif-  It consists iti making the vvater jackets  ofcopper, instead of iron as heretofore.  The cost is much greater, but the life  of the copper water jackets is many  times that of those made of iron.   '  The Reed mine, North Carolina,  holds the world's record for big gold  nuggets, This mine has yielded nuggets weighing 28 pounds, 17 pounds,  16 pounds, 13^ pounds, 9^ pounds,  two of 9 pounds each, two of S pounds  each, 5 pounds, 3^ pounds, two of 2  pounds each, and one of ij�� pounds.  Canada is coming to the front as a  copper producer. In 1900 the output  was 9,000,000 pounds and in 1901 it  had increased to 30,000,000 pounds  or 15,000 short tons. This output made  Canada eighth on the list ofcopper producing countries. British Columbia  headed the list of the provinces in the  production ol copper.  .V-pACiFic'm  World's Scenic Route  Direct Line  Lowest Rates  East----'--- ~~~~-���-:-----.\Vest  WINNIPEG VANCOUVER  TORONTO VICTORIA  OTTAWA SEATTLE  MONTREAL PORTLAND  NEW YORK San Fkancisco.

There is a marked contrast between  the effects ol" mining as a business and  ai.d other lines of activit)- upon the  individual, remarks an exchange. Let  the most conseivativc banker or any  one following any one of the various  lines of business, once become interested in mining and he is not content  wiih 1 lie ordinary rates of interest on  his money. The mining broker with  a low hundred dollars invested in his  business would never be satisfied with  a profit the same amount of capital  might bring in mercantile lines. In  deed, men interested in mining in any  of its various phases want to make  money very, very fast and they want  10 simply because it presents more  possibilities for making money fast  than any ofthe other callings.
