Especially in a mining camp where it is  hard to obtain ta|i)le luxuries aiid dejicacjes sucl} as one has  a craving for.    1-fqweyep <  This has been  Remedied  to a great extent, inasmuch as we have  made it our policy to give our customers the very best of  every thing in the Grocery line���and take care to have it  fresh.

At last the institution known as the  Phoenix General Hospital is about  ready to open its doors. A meeting  of the directors was held a few days  ago, and airangements were completed  for paying the balance of the bills I  against the building. Thursday of this!  week Secretary Hemenway signed, a'l  the checks for this purpose, and, some  timi before the first of J une the hospital'  will be 0|>eft to receive patients.  Miss Johnson, a graduate nurse ol  wide experience,'has been engaged as  matron of the hospital, arid she will  anive in a few days from Victoria, and  assume charge. ��� This is the only general hospital in the entire Boundary  country, and has long been needed  here. ." -,/��� '.'���'- ,':.  The Phoenix General Hospjtaj was  incorporated over two, years ago under  ths Benevolent Societies' Act, and  arrangements were started to finance  the putting up of the structure. The  mining companies hereabout al! contributed, the government gave assistance, and the .Hospital;'Ladies Aid  Sojiety did good work in raising funds  for the erection of the building. Last  summer the contract was let to W. R  Lee for the first wing of the hospital,  aud after many troubles Mr. Lee finished the building, but is said to have  lust money on the contract, which  amounted to about ��5,000. At am  rate, when he finisheii there were some  unpaid bills, and these had to be arranged for and taken care of. This  has delayed the opening of the institution until the present.  Plans for the l'hoenix hospital  were drawn by F. M.-Rattenbury, the  coast architect, and call for<two wings,  each 32x112 feet,connected by amain  building, two stories high. The rooms  in the building are large and airy, and  well arranged for the purpose intended.  All inside walls are of brick, and several  rooms have fireplaces, alL having 18  foot ceilings. ..It was the intention to  erect but one of the wings at present,  and this has been carried out, making  a most commodious and convenient  structure. As the need arises, in the  futuie, the rest of the building will be  put up. ��� The ground' was;given to the  hospital by the Granby Co.  ^   f^pmsn^nman  POST OFFICE STORE  Three Carloads ol Machinery.  Tuesday three carloads of Westing-  hoiise electrical machinery were received here for the Cascade Water  Power it Light Co., Ltd. It will be  used in the sub-station to be erected  here by the company for the purpose  of transforming and distributing the  power to the Phoenix mines. The  sub-station will be built of brick and  will be located on the (lold Drop  claim, just across '.he tracks from  the C. P. R. depot, at the present  terminus of the pole line. It is expected that work on the building will  be started shortly, the stringing of wire  on the double pole line being now  practically completed. ,  Dr. Mathisprir dentist.

Boundary Mining Notes.  ANOTHER DEFUNCT NEWSPAWV  Forks OaMltc AktorM Sy the Newt  Wedaestov.  After struggling against the inipvit  able for some months, the Grand Forks  Gazette last ��� NVednesday was sold oui  to the Grand Forks News, and this  week's issue of the combined weeklies  will be known as the News-Gazette.  Over five years ago the Grand Forks  Minor: was established by F. H. Mc-  Carter & Sons, and during the boom  days was a financial success. But in  thefali of 1900 Eber C. Smith started  the daily Gaiette in that city, and in  less than six months the competition  was so keen that he forced the Mc-  Carters to buy him out, the name  Gazette being retained as a part of the  bargain.     '".-';��� .''���'���'.���.���'.'. ':.' '  In August of last year the Grand  Forks News was established with Elmer  D. Hall, formerly of the Phoenix Pioneer, as the manager. The-News has  steadily made progress, while the Gazette seems to have been as steadily  losing ground- Negotiations for the  amalgamation of the two weeklies have  been in progress for some time, and  were brought to ^successful issue this  week. The Gazette had a fine plant,  and next week the News<Gazette will  appear jas a, seven coJumn.sheet..  MOTHERLODE  DISCOVERY  A car of Winnipeg ore was sent  the Trail smelter this week. '.-.".���  'Ihe Stemwinder mine is running26  stamps, and is adding 20 more, when  150 toiis of ore per day can be crushed.  Work has been started on a timber  spur for the Granby Co., to be about  600 feet long, and to run back of the  timber framing house and timber shaft.  All this week the 100 horse power  hoist for the No.' 2 shaft of the Old  Ironsides mine, being put in by the  Jenckes Machine Co.; of Sherbrboke,  Que., has been expected. It will probably arrive Monday.  Two cars of ore were- recently hauled from the No. 7 mine, in Central  camp, but hauling was discontinued  again on account of bad roads. The  roads.are now improving once more,  and hauling is to be resumed.  Wednesday connections were made  between the too and 200 foot levels  in the new three compartment shaft  at the Snowshoe. This connects the  railway tunnel workings with the main  shaft, which is now being timbered.  .Grading has been completed for the  new spur at the Snowshoe mine, to the  site of the new compressor: Excavations for the compressor building,  about _45x8o feet, will be begun a;  once, it being necessary to remove  rock to a depth of about ten feet.  Up to Marchjtsf the Granby mines  had 14,771 feet of work done. Of this  amount 3,689 feet were sinking, or  raising, and 12,082 weie drifting and  and crosscutting. r This does riot include the huge slopes and drifts where-  so much ore has been and is being  taken out.

Fraak Brazil, aa ladlaa, Takea la al Midway  Last Sunday.  Sunday evening Constable Cunningham, of Greenwood, arrested Frank  Brazil, an Indian, at Midway, charged  with the murder of Charles Hall at  Marcus on the ist of May. The same  night he was handed over to Deputy  Sheriff Clark, of Curlew, who took  him across the line for trial.  , It'appears that Brazil, who at fiist  gave the name of Frank Roberts, came  to the stable of J. J. Flood, at Midway, several (Jays ago, where he obtained work. Hall and the Indian  had quarrelled at Marcus, the lattei  getting the worst ot it Later Brazil  and another Indian murdered Hall,"  and Brazil's chum was apprehended at  Republic the next day. Brazil probably hid on the reservation, and then  arrived at Midway under, an assumed  name. The murder was cold blooded,  Hall being shot in the back. Hall is  said to be one of the Hall family who  located the then famous Silver King  mine, years ago, near Nelson, and from  which they realized a handsome sum.  1 will be known as the Granby Exchange.  Thus far not sufficient development  has been done on the new discovery  to determine the value and extent of  the ore body, but it will be opened up  and exploited thoroughly, with a view  of shipping to the company's smelter  at Greenwood. The ore is well mineralized, and has. a promising- appearance. Those who have seen it think  it will prove to be an excellent thing  for the company.  Excursion to Greenwood and Midway.  Next Saturday the C. P. R. will run  a special excursion train from Phoenix  to Greenwood and Midway, to accommodate the large number that will attend the Victoria Day celebrations in  those places. The train will leave  Phoenix at 8 a. m., and arrive at  Greenwood at 9.10 and Midway 9.40  a. m. Returning, the train will leave  Midway at S p. m, Greenwood at  S.25 p. m. and arrive in Phoenix at  10.30 p. m. The round trip fare will  be $1.10 to Greenwood, and $1.55 to  Midway.  The fiscal year for the Methodist  church ended May ist. The local  organization showed receipts and payments of $870, and no debts. The  conference for the province is being  held at Vancouver this week when Mr.  Kinney, of Phoenix, will probably be  sent to another field, and a new  preacher stationed at Phoenix.  It    has    been  apparent  for  some  time that something must be done  for  miners who meet with loss of sight  or  are otherwise  totally  disabled.   Such  cases are not frequent,   but  there  are  enough of them lo make some action  imperative on the part of the authorities.    Some time ago Constable Dar-  raugh made a recommendation  to the  government along this line,   but   was  viitually told by the poweis that be at  Victoria to mind  his  own  business.  Evidently the gentlemen who occupy  the government benches at  the provincial capital are too busy quarreling  among themselves over the loaves and  fishes to pay any attention  to what a  policeman may say.'-"  Now, however, the city council is  taking up the matter, and this week  ordered a resolution sent to the provincial secretary, the minister of mines,  and the member for this constituency,  Smith Curtis. Alderman Rogers introduced the resolution referred to,  which was as follows :  "Whereas, accidents, often lesulting  in loss of sight and total disablement  in other forms, are very common in  the mining districts of the province;  "Therefore, the municipal council  of Phoenix respectfully requests the  provincial government to,.arrange, for  the accommodation af all British subjects so disabled in the province, in  the Old Men's Home, at Kamloops."  Other Business Done.  At its Wednesday night's meeting,  all the councilmen were present except  Alderman Munroe and Mayor Rumberger. The finance committee reported favorably on the following bills,  which were ordered paid: A. P. McKenzie, 75c ; Hunter-Kendrick Co.,  $5; Greenwood Electric Co, $24;  V. &N. Tel. Co., $8.05.  Temporary Loan By-Law No." 37  was read a second time, and the mayor  and financecommittee were authorised  to sign the same.

It was definitely decided that a six-  foot sidewalk should be built on Knob  Hill avenue from the Biner block to  ihe depot, the estimated cost being  about $400.

The low grade copper ores of the
Boundary district in British Co|unibia
can he mined, smelted anil marketed
at a total charge of not more than $3.66
a ton, accoidingto Ur. A. R. Ledoux,
the famous copper sampler of New
York. He declares they are profitable
with copper at 12 cents.. Copper is
now 11^ @ n#c. Dr. Ledoux, who
is at the head of Ledoux & Co., rank-,
ing among the largest samplers of copper in the country, made a visit to the
BounJary mines lust summer to acquaint himself with conditions here.
He has an article in the current number of the Canadian Mining Review,
which will be read with unusual interest by. those who are watching the
development of the Boundary mines.
He says in part : j
"There have been nu.merous published guesses at the grade of these
Boundary creek ores, and,after all this
is the vital point 1,11 which all others
depend. On the north side of ihe
Phoenix ravine (which includes the
Dominion 'Copper, company's properties), the large amount of ore develop
ed is estimated to runabout 1.8 per
cent in copper, 552.40 in gold and 25
cents in silver. :
(With copper at 1 i%cr, that gives a
gross assay value of $6.88 a ton.')' ,
'H'he workable-ores from the south
sjdp of ihe Phoenix layine (which include? the properties of the Granby
company) contain on an average: Copper, 1.7 per cent; gold $1.60, and sil
ver, 33 cents per ton.
(With copper at   1 1 #c,  that gives
the total values of $5.93 a ton.)

! bad as shipped, about 1.6 |>er,; cent
, I'opper, $1.50 in gold and 30 cents in

I Greenwood (or Phoenix) camp, as
j shown by the smelter returns,'is"probably 1.66 percent of copper, .$1.80 in
gold and 50 cents in silver.
"I may say that I have had unusual
opportunities lor ascertaining the facts.
In arriving at the figures I have not
been obliged to depend on the statements of managers. The entire product
of the Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Company and of
the British Columbia Copper Company,
passes .through the hands of my firm,
Ledoux & Co., and from the freight
records it is readily ascertained from
how many tons of ore came the matte
and the blister copper we have handled.
Striemefhv Check Up.
"The statements of ore given tally
with'those, of the railway company,
representing ore delivered to the smelters, and the statements of the superintendents as to the grade of, this ore
tally closely with those figured from
the copper matte handled by us at
New York, checked again by my personal investigations on the s|>ot.
"It may therefore be taken as a safe
estimate that the laage amount of ore
available in the Boundary district will
vary from 25 to 35 pounds of copper
per ton of 2000 pounds, with from 25
to 40 cents of silver per to-i and from
$1.50 to $2.50 per ton in gold.
"It may be stated that there are
some mines like the B. C. near Eholt,
whose ores as shipped contain consider
ably more copper than the above, but
the figures I have given are wel| within
the limits for the average.
Tlmherint ■ Problem.
"The cost of mining these large ore
bodies in the Hoqndary varied from
$1.66 to J12.10 per ton, the first named
figure being the more recent.- It is
a difficult pioblem, as I have already
hinted, to handle the very large ore
bodies without the risk of caving and
ruining the mines, ori, the one hand, or
the necessary employment ol excessive
amounts of timbering or leaving, in the
mine large blocks of pay ore as support.
The management of the companies has
already been studying this problem,
and the Granby company proposes to
still further reduce the.cost of mining
by stripping from the surface down to
the present' level of the. railway track,
and by the introducing of the caving
system for the lower workings.
Cost o( Smelting Under $2.
"It has bean seen that the cost bf
mining in the district,, even with high
wages to miners, is very low, the conditions being most favorable. I come
now to the all important consideration
of smelting costs.
"The Boundary ores being self fluxing, indeed rather basic in character,
allow the admixture of a certain quantity of silicious ores from the Republic
camp or other districts, whose ores
carry gold and silver, and the sulphur
being low permits of smelting without
preliminary roasting. With the advent of railways from the south, the
Boundary smelters can procure more
dry'silicious ores at favorable iates. It
may also be stated at- this point that
the freedom of the ores from bismuth,
arsenic and antimony renders it easy
to obtain a ready market for the copper product. --
"In covering the cost of smelting it
is necessary to. take into account the
losses in slag and otherwise. I was
allowed to sample the slag dumps and
lo take portions of the weekly slag
samples which had been preserved in
the laboratory. Before the establishment of bessemerizing, the slag loss of
the Boundary shelters averaged: Copper, 4(5 per cent; gold, 12 cents per
ton, and silver 3 cents per ton. With
a consumption of about 11 per cent
coke, and with freight charges as they
exist today, the cost of smelting at the
most favorable location in the Boundary district after charging against the
smelter the costs of marketing the
product, must be considerably under
$2 a ton. Adding the present cost of
mining, the total outlay for mining and
smelting must be less than $3.66  per
Retjuclog the Costs,
"With the introduction of caving
and steam shovels at the mines, and
of bessemerizing at the smelters; with
further reductions in cost of freight
and fuel, sure to come with or without
the advent of competing railways, I unhesitatingly affirm that the copper ores
of the Boundary should he mined,
smelted and their contents marketed
with a profit, with copper at 12 cents
in New York, and as railway extensions
make other ore available that can be
purchased cheaply, the profit should
increase, but there must always be, as
elsewhere, many shipping mines too
small to justify  their own  individual
a broad business policy  should allow
them all to pn-sper.
Coutltaeats of Ores.
"The average ore of the best develop
ed Boundary , mines, showing nearb
500,000 tons in sight, is said to con
tain 38 ]>er Cent silica, 16 per cent of
oxide of iron, 15 per cent of lime, and
about 4j4 per cent sulphur, copper 1,8
per cent, besides gold and silver.
"Of course available ore de|>osits de
pend on cost of tieatment and price ol
their valuable constituents. With ad
equate railway facilities and fair "charges-
for coke, it is probable that there art
in sight in Phoenix camp today s'evera'
million tons of ore, which with coppei
at 12^4 cents a pound, could be .successfully treated.
"In Deadwood camp ore deposit!-
are also enormous, averaging ovei 13c
feet wide, and so situated that surfact
working can be prosecuted by quarry,
a single drill dislodging a train load ol
ore in a day. But the problem of mining the lower levels of these mines
without excessive cost of timber or the
permanent abandonment of one-hall
or one-third of the ore, left necessary
for pillars, muse be causing serious
thought. The tonnage that can be extracted from the Mother Lode is ako
up in the high figures, and' cheap
smelting a welcome fact."

Several of the mineral claims 0:1
Wallace Mountain, near Beaverdeli,
are among the most promising, in the
West Fork District. Among these are
ihe Bell, Bounty, Highland. .Chief,
Rambler,! Sally and Washington and
Idaho. The Bell was an early location on which the late Alex. Wallace
and John T. Bell did a deal of underground development work, opening up
a good showing of ore. The Sally,
owned by, the Vancouver & Boundary
Creek" Development Si Mining Company;-organized by Robert Wood; of
Greenwood; also has a' well-defined
vein of ore carrying high values in gold
and silver, especially the latter, a car

runs high.
The Rambler  is  owned   by   F. J.
Finucane {}>i interest); J.  W. Nelson,
also of Greenwood  (}<&   interest,  and
W:  H. Rambo  (}£   interest),   has a
:haft sunk in ore to the  85-ft.   level,
and from, this between 65 and 70 tons
of rich ore were taken last year. Some
900 sacks were got ready to ship and
teams started hauling, but lack of snow
prevented the ore being hauled the 40
or 45 miles  distance to Midway at a
reasonable cost, so that the owners are
out the cost of raising  the ore which,
if the wagon road be  not  completed
shortly,   must   lie  at   the   mine  until next  winter.     No  work  is being
done on the Rambler at present,   the
surface water from the melting  snow
being too trotibiesome.
The Bounty, on the east side of the
mountain, is under bond to Mr. Andrew Laidlaw, of Chicago, and several
associates. A shaft has been sunk
100 ft. on the vein, which started with
about two inches of high grade ore,
and widened out to 10 or 12 inches as
depth was made. The ore is quartz
mineralized with galena, zinc blende
and lead, having silver values up to
500 ozs. to the ton and $1 and $2 in
gold. Native silver shows freely in
the ore.
The Highland Chief is owned by
I'. J. Dermody, Geo. Dorr, Lafayette
Harris and Ed. Maloney. A crosscut
tunnel at 160 feet in cut a narrow vein
of rich ore showing free gold and native silver. The main vein, outcropping up the hill-side, is estimated to be
20 to 30 feet farther ahead, and the
tunnel is being extended in the expectation that it will be cut within that
distance. Some nice looking ore was
lately met with on the Black Diamond,
