Tvlicre are so many really good  mines in Phoenix camp that, when one  stops to consider the question, it is not  easy to determine which is the best.  The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides are  undoubtedly the banner properties as  yet, though some rank the Victoria  equally,high. Still others assert that  the IJominion Copper Co's properties,  such as the Brooklyn, Idaho and Stem-  winder, are not a whit behind, and are  only in need of development to show  up their iiiammoth ore bodies.  There is still another mine close by,  however, which in the opinion of many,  will be among the very best, and this  is the Gold Drop, adjoiriingthe Miner-  Graves properties. A Pioneer man  visited the Gold Drop this week, and  from Stanley A. Easton, the practical  superintendent, learned that the mine  is rapidly coming to the front, with  extensive' development and almost  equally good ore bodies, at so happens, also that the values from Gold  Drop ore average rather higher than  many others in camp.  Have Done Nearly 2,000 Feet.  Up to the i st of May, the development of che Gold Drop reaches nearly  2000 feet, "tffrd it is largely tunnels.  No. i tunnel, which is in 400 feet, has  350 feet of drifts and crosscuts and a  raise of 100 feet. No. 2 tunnel has  been driven 200 feet, and drifting and  crosscutting has been done to the extent of 100 feet. No. 3 tunnel, the  longest of the three,.is now in over425  feet and has an 80 foot raise.  The ore bodies in the Gold Drop  are similar to others in the more developed mines in the camp, in that they  are of large size. Like the Knob Hill,  the workmen, in the Gold. Drop ^ have  shnipst never been'������; out of ore. The  possibilities for-shipping from this  property  are, ' therefore,   greater than  WILL HAVE A HUNDRED MEN.  AU The Forces At East End Of Camp-To Be  Increased.   '.  A short time since the Pioneer announced, on the authority of Treasurer  D. H. Beecher, of. the WinnipegMinV  ing and' Smelting "Co., that work at the  mine would shortly. be resumed in  greater force than ever. -.'���' It was understood, at the time of the shut down,.'a  couple of months since,, that closing  was without sanction by the board of  directors. Last Monday Duncan Mcintosh, who has always nonaged operations on the Winnipeg from the beginning, visited the property, but was  averse to saying much about it.  Prom other, sources, .however, the  Pioneer is informed that arrangements  to resume are now beiiig. made ,under  a new manager, and 'that' this will be  done as soon as the rails are laid to  the ore dump. This tracklaying is  now in progress, andJn a few days all  will be ready.  It is also'stated that the forces at  the Athlestan and Hartford where  some good ore strikes have lately been  made will also ��� be increased. The  Golden Crown will doubtless add men  to the force now employed, as soon as  shipping facilities are afforded. In a  comparatively short time it is estimated  that a careful count of the. names on  the payrolls will show that at least 100  men are working" on these different  properties.     ���        ������������.������'.���..���';..

Heretofore the men, about 30 in  number, employed at the Gold Drop,  have mostly boarded at the Snowshoe,  adjoining, or in town.

Joseph Martin and Hon,  Smith Curtis atrived in Phoenix  Thursday evening, driving overland  from Columbia, Grand Forks and Cascade, where large meetings had been  held in the interest of the government  candidates, and where they say the  sentiment seems to be their way.  When'eight o'clock arrived, Miners'  Union Hall was crowded to the doors,  and those anxious to hear the premier  and the minister ol mines were still  trying to squeeze themselves into the  hall, in a more or less unsuccessful  manner. The., audience -."; contained  qiiite.a sprinkling of ladies, who were  quite anxious to see and hear the  famous "'Fighting Joe." .-.   over by  Delahay  Association,  briefly introduced the speakers of the  evening. Each of them occupied an  hour and a quarter, and closely' held,  the attention of the; "audience to the  end, it being evident that it was largely in sympathy with the party of the  speakers.    : '    -   ''-  ' .  Speech of the Premier.  Mr. Martin was the first speaker  and was received with applause. He  said that time would not permit- him  to go over all of the 22 planks of his  platform, but he would give attention  to_some of the most important. His  first topic was that of redistribution���  one in which he knew Boundary people were much interested. He explained his position in voting against  the redistribution bill on which the  late government went to peices, by  saying that he learned just in time that  it:Ayas_-tQ._he���.a]lQ-��;ed. 10 ,die. .on .its  second reading, and a coalition would  have been formed, putting off the redistribution measure indefinitely. .He  asserted that, according to the pre-^nt  representation, it took ten Votes in  Rossland riding to eom_o..C.n Lilloett  or Esquimalt B*^ii"oposed to go  to the 'coun.r^~j��srfn after the next  decennial xi0as, which would take  place Y--^0fyr\\, and have representation.!, f^^in actual population.  .--���' Oi the Oriental labor question Mr.  Martin apparently had every man in  the audience with him. At present  there is no restriction whatever on the  Japanese and only $50 per head tax  on the Chinese. He proposed to re-  enact repeatedly the anti-Mongolian  laws which had been disallowed by the  dominion government.  ���:: In regard to the Kettle River Railway charter Mr.Martin explained how  it was possible to build it, and that his  government had already written James  J. Hill in the matter. The speaker  also went into the details of the proposed coast to Kootenay government  railway, and showed it was entirely  feasible and practicable, and that ther.  would   be no  trouble  in  raising  th.  necessary funds for its construction,  In regard to roads and trails, the  premier stated that his government, it  returned to power, would build wagon  roads and trails wherever they were  really needed. But they would not be  constructed as in the past, many times  for some favored person, without absolute heed.  Mr. Martin then proceeded lo pay  his respects in plain language to the  C. P. K... which apparently was approved by his hearers. In regard to  the charge that he was a wrecker of  governments, he called attention to the  fact that he had never wrecked a government of which he was a member,  but took credit to himself for assisting  in turning put governments which he  thought, \vere not a credit' to the people.  In regard to his being a bold, bad,  dangerous man, and one in whom capitalists had, no confidence, he said that  if the Turner government could borrow  l5,ooo,ooo to give away or throw afiay,  he believed that capitalists would be  willing to invest when there was to be  a reasonable return on the money.  He had no fears whatever in regard to  the province being able to secure al!  the funds needed. It was now paying  a lower rate of interest on bonds than  the great C. P. R.  Minister of Miaes Speaks.  ��� ..The chairman then introduced the  Hon. Smith Curtis, minister of mines,  who is now standing for election in  riding. lie regretted that the  us speakers had used most ot  his- thunder, but he wished to call  attention to a few points, after complimenting the union on such a fine  hall.:  Mr. Curtis went somewhat into  detail in regard to the position of his  opponent, Mr. Mackintosh, on the  eight hour question, and claimed that  the latter gentleman was not sincere  in regard to his approval of it. Mr.  Curtis also refei red to Mr. Mackintosh  being in the east to secure capital for  Boundary mines, and at the same time  wiring from the east'that he had not  a dollar invested in Rossland riding.  He also* referred to Mr. Mackintosh's  record in the Northwest Terri  while he was lieutenanr-j  . 'I'he minister of mineMHRi gave  particulars' of how J|^^^ovemnient  would build the y^wS-d railway from  ,Vancouver taJppTay, and illustrated  the: benefvw^it would accrue to the  entirer.Cp^viiice-  VAs-the meeting closed three cheers  each were given lor the premier and  the minister of mines.  USE 10 DRILLS MORE  Knob Hill and Grey Eagle Will  Have Them.  COMPRESSOR ORDERED  THIS  WEEK  Also two M Horse-Power Boilers, two lilt  llol.Is and ��� Full Compieaeot of Kutv  sories.  This week the Jcnckcs Machine Co.,  of Sherbrooke, Quebec, secured an  order for another air compressor for  Phoenix camp.  The new machinery consists of .1  Rand duplex condensing air compressor  of ten drill capacity, two So horse  l>ower boilers; two 8x12 hoists, and a  lull complement of accessories, including drills, rope, ore buckets, etc. It  is to be insta led at the" Knob Hill  mine, nnd will be used for the development of that (irojierty and the Grey  Eagle, w!iich adjoins it. This will give  the Miner-Graves properties in thrs  camp a total of 20 machine drills.  The new plant is to be used only tjn-  til the large plant qf 40 drills is completed and installed, later in the year.  In addition to the two cages for the  Old Ironsides shaft, one of which ii.  now being put in, it has also been decided to put a cage in the winze in  the Knob Hill. The cages are to bo  made at the machine shops at thi_  Granby smelter.  DBPUTATK).. MET MR. MAKTIN.

The hot sun is drying the  woodwork in your building, and brush  and forest (ires may start 11(1 any time.  Insure against loss by fire. See L. C.  Crawford.  Last Sunday afternoon a dozen enthusiasts started clearing a place on  the Idaho ground, across the creek, for  base ball. A fire was started to burn  the brush, but went a little too far and  burned up the bungalow of Messrs.  Scott iK: McLaren. The contents  were saved.
