A Toronto brokerrecently purchased  011 'change 1,000 shares of Winnipeg  stock at a nominal price. On presentation it was fouid to be forfeited stock.  .The exchange should:take some action  to prevent the publication of such  fraudulent sales; which are a shameful  injustice to the Winnipeg s,tQckhold<ys.    ;.������:..;......     ���������.-I.IW.'I  of the Granby Co., is reported to have  said as follows:  "Porter Bros., the railway contractors, have been awarded the ^.contract  for quarrying 100,000 tons of ore from  the surface or glory holes of the Granby  group, with the understanding that if  the work is mutually satisfactory they  will be ready to undertake the extraction of 5,000,000 tons of ore. . Porter  Bros, are to start work within a few  days. They will install" an extensive  plant, comprising derricks and steam  shovels.  "This is not their first experience at  that sort of mining, as they formerly  extracted ore under similar conditions  in the iron mines of Michigan, where  the quarrying system prevails to a  considerable extent. The ledge across  the Granby group has already been  partially stripped, but it will be stripped for an additional length of 1500  feet and for a width averaging 200 feet.  This, of course, is quite independent  of the underground development; work  directed by'the company.    ,  "When the new plant is installed we  can produce a tonnage of from 2500 to  3000 tons daily.     Our   mines," said  Mr. Graves, in conclusion, "are looking better than 1 ever saw. tKerh   look  before.    After examining, the  underground  development and   inspecting  the surface exploration  I   realize  that  my previous estimates of the oie reserves were away below the mark."  Begin Stripplni la a Few Days.  Supt Williams, of the Granby Co.,  informs the Pioneer that the first work  of Porter Bros, will be the stripping  of  the Grey Eagle surface on the southern  slope.   For this purpose a rope.' tram'-  way will be installed  shortly,   having  two stations, some 600 feet aparti One  of the Porter Bros, is  now  away getting the nlachineiy and  tools  needed  shipped'to Phoenix, and they ought to  arrivfi..by, next   week,   when   active  operations will be started.  ing resumed from this property  The 160 h. p, hoist, ordered by the  Granby Co. for the Old Ironsides  No. 2 shaft, is expected to arrive from  Sherbrooke next week. . The foundations for the hoist have been completed.  The Mother Lode smelter is sending its flue dust for treatment in the  briquetting plant of the Granby smelter. The new mud mill for making the  linings of the converters is beginning  operations, 'i  Work on the completion of changes  at the Sunset smelter is being rapidly  pushed with a considerable force of  men, and it will be prepared to blow  in in a very few weeks. The new  crusher is expected to arrive shortly.  Assays of $50 and $75 have - been  had recently from the Gold Finch,  near Greenwood, and the ledge has  been exposed for 300 feet.

The recoid of ore shipments, from  Boundary mines for the jfirst four  months of 1902 shows that there is a  constant increase in the amount sent  out, and it seems likely that the average will be increased'again in a short  time. The large increase is due, of  course, to the recent blowing in of the  Mine Jan.  Grunby mines 17,571  Mother Lode..... 11,988  Jewel  . .  Golden Crown...

Annexed to the ore shipment table  below will be found the details, by  months, of the two smelters now  operating in the Boundary. Briefly  put, 16,0,000 tons. Qf ore were mined  and shipped from. Boundary mines during the first four months of this year  and the Boundary smelters reduced  158,000 tons.   '   '   .   .  Of course,'the. Granby. mines and  the Granby smelter led in the tonnage,  followed by the Mother Lode, half a  dozen other mines contributing to the  total. The figures for each mine and  smelter, by months, are as follows:  REV. MR. MILLAR RESIGNS.  Has Beta Pastor la  Phoenix for Eighteen  Months.  At a special meeting of St Andrews  Presbyterian church, recently held, I  Rev. J. M. Millar, M. A., announced J $4��,ooo per month  his jntention qf resigning the pastorate  of the organisation in the near future.  Last Sunday evening Mr. Millar also  made the same announcement from the  pulpit, stating that he was impelled lo  do this from personal reasons.

Gradually the' monthly payroll of  the Granby Co. in this camp has been  increasing. When the daily shipments  were 700 tons, the monthly amount  distributed to the men for wages was  about $26,000. Then when the shipments were increased to 1,000 tons per  day, the amount increased to over $30,-  000 each month. And now tnat 1,500  tons on an averagej are being sent out  each twenty-four hours, increasing of  necessity the number of men at work  in the mines, the payroll approximates  Phis latter sum  is about what will be distributed today,  this being the monthly pay day. This  is the largest amount yet paid out for  wages by this or any other company  operating in the Boundary country.  The number of men employed in the  ca.np has been materially increased qf  late. A couple of months ago, the  Granby mines alone had. some 350  men on the list, which number has  steadily been added to till one day-  last week the total reached 460 men���  the largest number ever employed by  this company. In addition to this, tne  company's smelter has about 250 men  at work at the works at Giand Forks.  As announced in last week's Pioneer, by direction of the secretaiy,  ]ohn Inglis, of Brandon, Man., Supt.  Duncanson, of the Golden Crown  mine, two miles east of Phoenix, discharged his force of 12 workmen last  week Thursday, the 1st of May. The  pumps were, however, kept running  till Sunday night, when they were taken  out of the property on receipt of telegraphic orders to that effect.  Last year the Brandon & Golden  Crown Mining Co., Ltd., was reorganized "on the assessable basis as the  Golden Crown Mines, Ltd., the shares  being assessable up to five cents each.  The new company began business with  an indebtedness of something like $30,-  000, nearly all of which has been paid  off. D. H. Duncanson was engaged  as superintendent and manager of the  mine, and for the last six months  work has been uninteiruptedly prosecuted. In the course of the development some 625 tons of ore were shipped, a part of which gave very satisfactory returns.  All five of the assessments have  been levied, and the first two or three  were very generally met. Since starting the last time about $11,000 is reported to have been expended on the  property, and besides the ore taken  out and shipped to the-Greenwood  smelter, considerable development  work has been done.  Nothing is as yet known as to the  immediate cause of the suspension, but  it is believed to be a shortage of funds,  for the time being. The largest shareholder in the company is William J.  Porter, of Phoenix, who located the  property originally in 1893, and has  spent more on it than any one other  individual. Mr. Porter still has the  greatest faith in the Golden Crown,  and will probably endeavor to arrange  for a resumption of work. Under the  old regime the mine shipped 2,250  tons of ore. ,  FOR BENEFIT OF JOHN MclNTOSH.  Eagles Will Give a Smoker Next Friday Eve-  ninj.  The local aerie of the Fraternal  Order of Eagles will give a smoker in  their Hall (Miners Union) next Friday  night, May 16th, for the benefit of  John Mcintosh, the miner who lost  his sight by blast in the Knob Hill  mine some three months ago.  A splendid program is being arranged, consisting of songs, specialties,  boxing and wrestling. Light refreshments will be served, and all that it  will cost you will be what Judge  Williams, as master of ceiemonies,  decides. His motto is, "Fine li.nht,  but fine often." President Marshall,  of Phoenix Aerie No. 15S, has. the  matter in hand, and his committee are  hard at work to make the smoker a  success. Everybody and their friends-  are invited to the "Sta^" social and a  good''time is assured.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.  The following tabic gives the ore shipments of Boundary mines lor  his congregation aud of the residents,  of Phoenix generally. It is thus hardly  necessary <o, say that there is general  regret at his announced intention to  return to the east. As secietary of  presbytery, Mr. Millar will call a meeting of that body, to be held probably  in Phoenix late this month, or early  next,, to ta,ke action on his resignation.  Through the courtesy of the Westminster, the Pioneer presents herewith  a portrait of Mr. Millar, who has not  yet decided where he will be located in  the fUjtuje^.  for 1901, as reported to the Phoenix Pioueer-  . i '900  Granby Mines, Phoenix    04,533  Snowshoe, " ;         297  Brooklyn, "                 150  Mother Lode, Deadwood      5,340  Sunset, "   Morrison, "   B.C.

GEORGE GIBSON  SilAVIXC PAKI.OKS  '������������ ani�� HATiiKOOM.  An official estimate of the total cost  of the South Aliican war to Maich  31st, 1902, places the amount at  nearly ^223,000,000 ($1,115,000,  000), This seems to be quite an  expensive little unpleasantness.

It has been remarked that when the  Golden Clown mine has been closed  in the past, .he Brooklyn and .Siem-  winder were being worked. It this  rule works, we may expect to hear the  whistle on the north side of town Le-  fore long.  For the first four months of 1902  over 1 Co,000 tons of ore were shipped  from Boundary mines. The present  rate of about 12,000 tons per week has  only been in force for the last month.  The total for 1902 will be much  larger than for 1901.  If ever a man had his troubles in  building a branch line of railway,  James J. Hill is that man, and the  line refened to, it is needless to remark, is the Great Northern branch  from Marcus to Republic and Boundary' points, which is ultimately to be  , continued to both the Amencan and  Canadian Okanagan, as well as the  , Similkameen.  For years, owing lo the best organized opposition he ever went up  against, Mr. Hill was kept out of the  Boundary on one pretext or another.  Then last year he began building, and  after getting the rails down to this side  of the line, injunctions began to crop  up against his line that would have  discouraged an ordinary man. One  by one, however, he has sui mounted  them all, and at last has come out first  best. The immediate result is that  his contractors are now rushing the  completion of the Republic line, and  will soon have that finished.  But it is the Boundary branches in  which we are interested chiefly, and  there are straws blowing which show  that ere long there will be the greatest  activity on these feeders, on which  thousands of men will be employed.  As a rule, contractors will say but  little in advance of what they are going  to do, and this is no exception, but it  is known that they are preuaring for a  large amount of woik to be done this  summer and fall.  It goes without saying that the chief  ��� objective point of the Great Northern  in the Boundary is this camp of Phoenix. A section that can and does pay  a single railway thiee-quarters of a  million in freights alone in one year,  is worth looking after���and Mr. Hill  will not let it pass by. It takes time  to work out these problems, but they  are being steadily worked out, just the  same. Mr. Hill sees his mistake in  letting his great Canadian lival enter  this territory fiisi, and he will make  no more mistakes of this kind, if he  can help it.

MINING NOTES  In the last few months the versatile  correspondent has had the Snowshoe  mine consolidnted with the War Eagle  at Rossland, the Brooklyn, the Stem-  winder, and a few others. In fact  he tried to tie the Snowshoe up to some  other mine just so often. He seems  to have missed connections this week.  Concerted efforts aie being made in  the Kootenays to induce the Dominion  government to inciease the import  duties on lead. If the mining industry  is to be properly conserved, this should  certainly be done. Thus far the Ottawa authorities have steered shy of  the question, and now pressure is lo  be brought.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  EDITORIAL COMMENT  Narrow escapes from defeat seem to  be the lot of the Dunsmuir government  these spring days; A day mav bring  foil!) anything, apparently.  When Crow's Nest coal shares are  at a premium of several hundred per  cent, it is little wonder that interest in  new fields of black diamonds increases.

Talk business in your advertising  and the adveitising will maks business  for the store. <���  A little advertisement will make a  big difference in the business of a little  establishment.  The store without confidence enough  in itself to adveitise will probably lack  the spirit which will incite the confidence of those about it.  Spring advertising should be bettei  than any of the adveitising that has  preceded it.

A great deal of interest has been  aroused bv: mining men by the an-  iiouncenient that the American Institute of Mining Engineers will probably  include this province in their annual  excursion itinerary next year, Alto  gether, it is understood, the party may  number three hundred of the mosi  prominent mining men of the continent,  and their stay in Hiitish Columbia  would be neat ly two months, 'I heie  are about fifty ineinbeis of the institute in this province, including W. J  Robertson, provincial.mineralogist,' and  nearly all the prominent mine mana  gei's and engineeis, including a number in the Boundary.  The Institute has just'held its 32nd  annual meeting in New York, when  following officers weie elected :  President, E. E. Olcott, New York  City; vice piesidents, (to serve for two  yeais), S. E. Emmons, Washington,  D. C.j lames Gay ley, Pittsburg, I'a.j  /. Henry Lee, Carbon Hill, Ala.;  managers.(to serve three years), E. W.  Parker, New York City; James \V.  Neilj, Salt Lake City, Utah; M. D.  Valentine, Woodbridge, N. J.; treasurer, Theodore D. Rand, I'hilidelphia,  Pa.; secretary, Rossiter W. Ramond,  New York City.  The president, Mr. Olcott, is the  senior member of the firm of Olcott,  Corning &: Peel, consulting, mining  and melaliirgic.il engineers, Wall Street,  New York. ��� Vice-Presidents. F.Em  mons, of Washington, D: C , is a prom-  inet member of the United States geological survey; F. W. Parker, of New  York; one of the managers, is managing editor of the Engineering and Mining Journal, while Rossiter W. Raymond, the secretary, will berememher-  ed by mining men as one of the expert  witnesses who gave evidence in the  noted Centre Star-Iron Mask lawsuit  at Rossland. The membership of the  institute is 3,027 including honorary,  life and associate members.  This institute has grown to be the  most important mining body in the  world. It includes among its members the leading engineers of not only  the United Stales and Canada, but  also of England, Germany, France  and other Europeatl countries, South  Africa and Australia. '  The importance of an excursion to  British Columbia by this institute, aiid  the probable effect such a visit would  have upon the future development of  the mining resources of the province,  cannot be estimated too highly. 'I he  members who |iarticipnted in such  excursions were naturally the engineers  whose opinions influence capital in  its investments to a greater extent prob  ably than any other .individuals possibly can do, The mere fact that the  council of the Institute favorably considered invitations sent from local  members to arrange for the next long  distant excursion to take in British  Columbia, demonstrated that the mineral resourcesof this country were attracting the attention of the world at  large and particularly of investors in  the United Spates..  It is eppte safe to say, that no body  ot men has ever visited British Columbia whose individual and collective influence is as great with capital as that  of the American Institute of Mining  Engineers.
