Miwnw  |6iuups0^m  ]^^^��mmm%��  For the first time in years, hardly a  wheel is turning today at any of the  large mines of Phoenix camp, and practically all the copper mines in this  camp are closed tight, in most cases  only the engineers, pump men and the  like being on duty at the several large  properties, which combined usually  ship upwards of 4,000 tons of ore each  24 hours..  The initial cause  of this wholesale  lay-off, affecting some 800 men in this  camp alone, was the  stoppage of coke  receipls    from   the collieries  in   East  Kootenay, which  in   turn   was due to  the strike of the coal   miners  in that  district, whence the entire coke supply  for Boundary -smelter,   is  obtained���  the coal miners  having now been idle  about two weeks.    This strike, according to belief, may be settled soon, the  report early in the week being that the  operators and   miners' representatives  had finally agreed   on   a  scale, it only  lacking the  confirmation  of: the coal  miners   themselves   by  a  referendum  vote, which was to be taken at the several collieries on Thursday.   The opinion was expressed in advance that the  vote would be favorable, and that work  in the coal  mines would  be resumed  immediately thereafter on an agreement  to last for two years.  It was evident last week that the  coke supply, would last but a shoJt  time���merely a matter of cays. Two  weeks ago tomorrow the Dominion  Copper Co.'s smelter was blown out  for lack of coke, but the company's  mines were kept in operation for a  time on development. Granby suc-  seeded in operating five or six furnaces' of its smelter till early thj.s  week,' but on Mondayrthe, last ^the  Gn:at" Northern, 'and that night some  350 men were laid off at the mines..  Wednesday night another 100 men  were laid ofT by the Granby Co. at the  mines, the smelter having closed down  tight. The next morning the (orce at  the Snowshoe mine, some 120 men,  was laid off, and Thursday morning the  100 or more men at the Rawhide  mine of the Dominion Copper Co.  were also given a vacation. The latter company's Brooklyn and Idaho  mines were practically closed a day  or two before.    The   Emma  mine  of  the B. C. Copper Co. is closing and  the Mother Lode mine of the same  company may soon follow suit. The  B. C. Copper Co. could operate one  furnace with the coke on hand, two  still being in commission, but this is  not deemed an economical* method of  procedure, and the nearly. 200 men  at the Mother Lode may be given a  rest, as well as 100 at the smelter.  Thus two of the large producing  copper company's mines in'the Boun-|  dary and the smelters connected with  mines are now idle, and will remain so  probably till the question of coke  supply is settled and settled so that  some dependence can be placed on  the promises of the coal operators to  furnish the coke.  Altogether, therere were approximately 2,000 men employed at the  several mines and smelters of the  Boundary, many of whom have drawn  their time and scattered to different  parts. Some have gone fishing, others  to the old country. or to see friends,  and many will undoubtedly return  when the labor matters are satisfactorily settled.and things are in running  order again���which . it is ��� confidently  believea will be within the next two or  three weeks. .Miners of long experience assert that there are many worse  localities to work in than the Boun-j  dary, and while some men have gone  and will not return, others will only  await the word to come back to the  Boundary.  Ask For Ralie ia Wife*.  Coincident with the shut down,  occasioned by the coke -shortage,  comes the situation that the, miners of  . K��^Rojiodgry deemed this tlie proper  generally, -�����*--'���*�� an������-inrjeaseiki- .wae _s4  considered by the several companies  interested here.  A short time ago a committee of  Phoenix Miners' Union, No. 8, con-  sistingof President Loiititt.H Heidman,  and R. D. Mitchell, waited on Local  Manager Hodges, of the Granby Co.,  and requested that the wages of the  men be raised 50 cents per day, the  prevailing rate being $3 for muckers  and $3.50 for miners. After considering the   matter, the companies   inter-  working underground, with a proviso  that men should work 24 shifts to be  entitled to the increase, this proviso  itself being so framed as to protect the  men from' being laid off without cause  before the expiration of the time the  raise should take effect after starting  work.        ;;��� I  Last Saturday night the  miners, at  the   regular   weekly   meeting   of the  union, declined to accept the proposition,   and  so   notified   Mr.   Hodges.  Another conference between the companies' representatives and . the  com  mittee of the   union   was   arranged to  take   place  last  night, the results of  which were not known as the Pioneer  went to   press  last evening.    In  any  event, the matter  will   be considered  by the union at its meeting this evening.     It is   understood   that the carpenters also have made a request "for a  raise from $4   to  $4.50 per  day, and  that a raise has been asked for by the  employees at the Granby smelter.  Situation Considered Hopeful.  When it is considered that a serious  labor difficulty has never yet  occurred  with the Granby Co. in the   ten   years  that it has   been operating,   and   that  Mr. Hodges and his men have always  gotten along on the best   of terms   in  the past, there is every reason for thinking that, by a little give and   take, the  men and the companies will come   together and reach an agreement on the  wage scale.    In fact, it is the universal  opinion that, if the coke question   was  settled, the wage scale in the Boundary  would soon be adjusted.  As the mines  must remain idle for  a time.-however,  on  accound   of lack  of coke,   it   is  thought best all around,***  ffig^^fiiias'iSPthat will last and  will insure an uninterrupted run of  mines and smelters for years to come.  At the meeting last night those  expected to be present besides the  committee mentioned and Mr. Hodges,  the latter on behalf of the Granby Co.,  were: A committee from Greenwood  Miners' Union ��� No. 22; Chas. Biesel,  of the Snowshoe mine; \V. C. Thomas,  manager of the Dominion Copper Cc\;  J. E. McAllister, manager, and   Fred-  Aldermen    Wish    to  Phoenix Street.  At Wednesday's regular weekly  niceiiiig of the city council there were  piesent Mayor Matheson and Aldermen Carson, McKenzie and Porter.  A petition with 24 signatnres was read,  askiriu that sidewalks be constructed  on botlvsides oftheFirst street bridgj,'  on which action was deferred. Acknowledgments were read from Victoria^  regarding the request for the appoint  mem of a provincial constable in  Phoenix.  City Clerk Stephens was directed to  insert a notice in the Phoenix Pioneer,  to the effect that playing ball or other  games oh business streets was prohibited, and, a  committee, consisting  of his worship and   Alderman   Porter,  w..s appointed, to see  the officials of  the Dominidn Copper   Co.   regarding  the securing of ;a few feet of ground for  the widening of Phoenix street.

The new foundry at Anaconda, adjoining the city limits of Greenwood,  made its first casting last monday.  A. Harry Hook, the Greenwood assayer, has gone east to accept a position with the Nipissing mine at  Cobalt.  Several bunches of Greenwood boys  have started for the northern part of  the province, Bulkley valley, etc., to  carve out more fortunes.  It is still not easy to travel by wagon  as far as Franklin camp, over the new  wagon road. But the present  weather will soon make the  ice disappear.  James J. Dale, who killed two men  last fall at the Carmi mine, West  Fork, will come up for trial at the  Supreme Court sitting, which will be  held at Greenwood May 22d.  One day last week a couple of slag  cars broke away at the Granby smelter  and went over the dump. There has  been little danger of like occurrences  this week, and for a while to come.  It was very unkind of the Western  Clarion in its last issue to refer to  Price Ellison, the member for Okanagan, as "Mr. e mffiffl flfiz ff th et."  Even his supporters won't recognize  him.���Midway Star.  Recently, at Eholt, W. G. McMynn,  of Greenwood, stipendiary magistrate,  heard a case against A. H.

He comes well recommended, being a  first-class prescription druggist and a  graduate of the Ontario college of  Pharmacy.  Both of these gentlemen show their,  confidence in the- Boundary and es-j  pecially in Phoenix by taking heavy  financial interests here at this time,  and they will 'doubtless secure their  share of business.''  Returns from the vote of the coal  miners in the Crow, as to whether they  will return to work on the terms���as  yet not given out���agreed to by their  own officials, haVe been eagerly  awaited here, and all day yesterday ihe  question was on every one's lips.  Seemingly there was much delay in  compiling the result, and at the time  of going to press the Pioneer had not  received anything definite.  Michel was said to have refused ihe  terms by a majority of 155; Frank, 55  for and 77 against; Lille, 93 for, 13  against; Bellevue, 35 for, 18 against;  Hillcrest and Coleman, said to be  favorable. Fernie, the biggest union,  not definitely known, but thought to  be favorable.   The last report was that there is a  total majority of 100 for accepting the  terms, and that Sir Wm. Muioek is  preparing to return home.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, M.P.  for Yale-Cariboo, is expected home in  a few days from Ottawa.  After an idle, season the big sawmill  of the Yale-Columbia Lumber Co. at  Cascade, is once more in shape to turn  out its 100,000 feet of lumber each 24  hours, a good market being found for  the product in the northwest���when  the railways can haul it.  In the long winded legal case involving the much prized water right on  Fourth of July creek, known as William  H.

Work has been suspended on the  Dynamo claim till machinery is installed, on account of water.  Some of the richest free gold rock  yet seen in the Boundary came out of  the Providence mine this week.  For the month of April the Granby  mines shipped 70,518 tons of ore, the  largest month for the last ten months.  The   Dominion   Copper   Co.'s   big |  electric   compressor   was   shut   down'  Wednesday, having been in operation  about a week.  Page Boyles is looking after the  diamond drilling at the Elkhorn personally, and is making good progress  with the bore.  Last week the Johannesburg claim,  near Greenwood, was bonded for  $6,000, and development is soon to be  started on the property.  Not over 20 wen are on the Granby mine force now, out of nearly 500  last Monday. The present force includes the compressor men, boiler  men and pump men.  At the Brooklyn mine a few men  are busy preparing the electric pump  for business. A large station has been  cut, capable of holding the water that  will accumulate in 40 hours.  The Granby is working just one  machine drill���that on the 200-foot  contract in the Curlew tunnel. The  bore is now in about 500 feet, and ihe  four contractors now have about 100  feet more to go. The tunnel will strike  the Gold Drop ore body at a considerable depth.  The Greenwood Times is authority  for the statement that the project  mooted some years ago, of driving a  long tunnel from that place, to tap the  mines of Phoenix is once more being  talked of, but nothing seems to lie  known of the matter by those most interested in this camp.  This week the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter has been operating two furnaces at full blast, with the hope of  getting the third furnace at work. But  the coke is now coining in so slowly  from the reserve on hand at Lillie,  Alta., at the West Canadian Collieries,  Ltd., that it is more than likely that  the entire works will be blown out at  any time.

The posters  issued by the celebration committee  are among the best ever printed in the  Boundary or Kootenay.  In Grand Forks the bankers and  printers are reported to be so chummy  that they actually play base ball together frequently, being probably the  only city in the province where typographical experts can get so close to  the man who handles the overdraft  column.  Daniel Luxon   was   struck   on   the  assaulting head by a bar which slipped, on   Sun  day at the Mother Lode mine, and he  was taken to the Greenwood   hospital.  When Aid. John Donaldson left  Grand Forks last week, to go into business with J. E. W. Thompson, of  Phoenix, at Moose Jaw, Alta., he was  presented with a gold watch and an  address by his numerous friends at the  Forks.  A baseball club has been formed in  Grand Forks, with the following officers: Captain, Lee Tutt; manager,  Tony Dunham; treasurer, Wallace  Chalmers. The new aggregation expects to arrange games with other fans  in the Boundary.  Grand Forks had its second public  cremation last week, a Sikh laborer,  named Dhulip Singh, having died  there. With the city health and provincial and civic officials on hand to  take note, the event was pulled off in  the style said to be common to India.  No cases of suttee have yet been  reported.  The matter of the change of the  wagon road from the C. P. K- in  Phoenix to Hartford Junction, or  thereabouts, is now receiving trie consideration of the provincial authorities.  If they will also look after the mile of  road just below Phoenix, on the way to  Greenwood, they will do something  I that'-has long been needed.  NAME OF COMPANY.  j    AOTHOa-  CAPITAL.

It may require a week or a month, but  the settlement  is  sure  to  come, and  when it does arrive there will  a   meta-  morphosisfifTthe Boundary   that  will  make the old timers' rub their eyes.  Before the coal   miners'  strike occurred a couple of weeks ago,  matters  were in such splendid  shape  that  we  were on the eve of such  a  long  and  steady run at the mines  and  smelters  as Was  never heretofore experienced.  The new work  and  enlargements at  the    district    mines    and     smelters  in progress for a year,   were  and  are  about done, the long and severe winter  and its attendant troubles were behind  us, the price of the  metals   was  satisfactory���in short, everything was lovely  and the goose hung high.  ,,The   labor    troubles,   of    course,  1   i|*i *n in .ni'    r ii" ' *"��"���'-  only temporary; of that  we  can  feel  assured.    The interests at stake are  too far reaching to permit of the  present state continuing.

Notwithstanding the flamboyant  broadside advertisements of get-rich-  quick mining companies, hailing all  the way from Cobalt to Goldfield,  which are published in New York  papers, there is one editor at least who  looks at them askance, and the paper,  strangely enough, is devoted to newspaper and kindred interests, being  Printers' Ink. Here is what he says  about the mining exhibition recently  opened in New York:  The widely-heralded "mining show"  in Grand Central Palace, New York,  organized to acquaint the public with  possibilities of getting rich through  purchases of cheap mining securities,  opened April 15 with mountains of  prospectuses and ten-cent stock piled  up, and a side-show of fortune-tellers  and similar experts. The police visited  the place the first, evening and suppressed several gambling games. The  show was well attended by holders of  free tickets.  For some reason, all does hot seem  to be lovely in the camp of our class-  conscious comrades. Last winter,  during the provincial political campaign, in which great quantities of hot  atmosphere were unloaded on the unsuspecting public by the speakers of all  three parties,'Walter Thomas Mills, of  Seattle, a Socialist orator of no mean  attainments, made somev speeches for  the cause in British Columbia, and was  heralded by the faithful as the real  thing. Just now there seems to be a  difference of opinion regarding Comrade Mills, for we find the official  mouthpiece,: the_J��fister_u_Clarion.^o  "A    (Tori'itls-itic* .:'��t!___4 U-. __:- '_*.__.'..    .>    _ .  ���o  ,-.

World's Capper  Statistics.  In the MininK Journal of December  22 last, in reviewing  the  progress of  mining  and   metallurgy  in   1906   we  roughly estimated the world's production of copper in that year at 740,000  tons.    We have now  received  a copy  ofthe fifteenth annual issue of the admirably copper statistics compiled by  the Messrs. Aron   Hirsch & Son,  of  Halberstadt, showing that the world's  production in 1906 was 736,711 tons.  The production of the variouscountries,  in tons, was as follows:  IN    THE  United States...  417,411  Spain and Portugal......    5.1,000  Mexico ���     60,000  Chili     30,000  Japan     37,000  Germany     26,200  Canada     24,000  Australia     43>������  Peru     ",500  Russia  .     10,000  Cape Colony       8,500  Norway and Sweden       6,500  Italy..       3.100  Newfoundland        2,500 .

Merton's figures for last^'  year, which emphasize the growing  divergence of view taken by different  authorities to which we have frequently  referred.

Although the price hits  gone up from ^60 in 1904 to ^,120  (February 1907) for electrolytic copper,  the consumption has continued to increase with no regard to the rules bf  political economy.  Tne consumption is not due entirely  to ihe electrical industries, there has  been activity in all trades, and notably  in the domain of transport, railways,  and shipbuilding. Of the German  consumption of 163,000 tons in 1906;  the electrical works used 78,000 tons,  copper roiling mills, sheets, bars, pipes,  &c, 25,000 tons, brass rolling mills,  ) 36,000 tons, chemical works, 2,000  tons, and shipbuilding, railways, and  foundries, 22,000 tons. The high  prices have, of course, had a detrimental influence on some of the  smaller industries.  The statistics for the United States,  Canada, and Mexico, are of special  interest, inasmuch as these three  countries account largely lor the increased production. In 1891 they  produced 136,874 tons, as against  501,411 ton in 1906. The production of the United States increased  from 128,179 to<4i7,4ii tons, that of  Mexico from 5,195 to 60,000 tons, and  that of Canada from 3,500 tons to  24,000 tons. The world's consumption ofcopper in 1906 is estimated at  788,008 tons; subtracting from this the  production, there is an excess of consumption over production of 51,297  tons, disregarding the old material, of  which there is probably 120,000 to  1 50,000 tons in the world, so that the  actual copper consumption is probably  about 900,000 tons, and in a few years  may be expected to reach a million  tons.���London Mining Journal.

Victoria, B.C., 24th April, 1907.  PHOENICIAN AT  MINING SCHOOL  Describes Mining Building at  Pullman, Wash.  Pullman, Wn., April ?.<,, 1907.  Editor, the-Phoenix Pioneer,  Dear Sir:���Since the majority o  your readers are interested in mining,  the following description ol the mining equipment of the Washiug State  College may be of interest to many of  them.  As one approaches the campus of  the college from the west, the most  striking object is the tall smoke stack,  at the foot of College Hill, that marks  the position of the mining building.  The stack was originally built for the  use of the boiler plant which  once occupied the mining building.  At present its most useful purpose is  to furnish a picturesque background  on which the various classes of the  school leave their numerals from year  to year.  The building occupied by the min  ing department, is located just at the  edge of the campus, to the right as one  enters. It is built of brick and is three  stories in height.  Upon the ground floor, wliieh is  paved with brick is a 50 h. p. motor  which supplies power to the various  machinery thoroughout the building.  Here also is a small blast furnace with  a daily capacity of six tons. It is designed for the reduction of both lead  and copper ores. A large floor space  is left vacant around the furnace in order to give plenty of working room.  An assortment of two wheeled slag  pots, a small stamp mill and a cyanide  mill are on the ground floor. Another  interesting feature of the building,  though not connected with the mining  department, is the large triplex pump  which furnishes water to the college  buildings, pumping from an artesian  well. .  The second floor of the building is  occupied by the ore dressing labratory.  Here is installed a large gyratory crusher,  a pair of rolls for the fine crushing of  ores, a Wilfley concentrator, in the  center ofthe room, a three compartment  jig, a vanner, a hydraulic classifier, a settling tank, and an elevator. A section  of this floor is used for storting ores.  The third floor contains the assaying  laboratory, and is the most used,of all.  Here are located three double muffle  furnaces, as well as several small gasoline furnaces. Means are provided  for the hand-dressing of ores, sampling  and weighing. A balance room is partitioned off in one corner and contains  several good assay balances. There  are desks for the students in this room  and it is here that most of the work of  the department is carried on.  It is seen, therefore, that the equipment of the building is amply sufficient  to furnish instruction in essential  metallurgical processes, as well as in the  testing of ores,  At present the chief needs of the  department are a reverberatory furance  and a chlorination plant, which it is  hoped the recent appropriations will  permit of.

CHiet Engineer Kennedy, of the  VTV. & E., who was in town Thursday, said tbat his engines at the railhead, which is now at the bridge across  the Similkameen river at Keremeos,  were having trouble to get coal, and  had been burning slabs this week to  keep things moving and to get material  to the front for the construction of the  bridge.  It seems to be pretty well settled  that the Great Northern will not build  beyond Keremeos, on its Similkameen  extension, this year, much to the dis  appointment of residents of the .upper  Similkameen country, who have been  waiting for many years for railway  communication. The exact reason for  this is not known, but is believed to  be primarily th6 shortage of railway  labor, coupled with the great amount  of new work now in hand in the  Northwest.  arm power in the Pioneer office���like  old times���the "juice" that usually  operates the machines in this printing  palace not now being available.

The alarm  Drought out the-department  on short      River  notice,   and  a  chemical   extinguisher  Rossland  put out the blaze,   which   was   in   the Boundary  roof,   occurring   from    the  stovepipe.  Being far -beyond the water mains, the  chemical proved most effective.  Bill Nye's Cow Advertisement.  Bill Nye, the humorist, once had a  cow to sell, the story goes, and advertised her as follows: "Owing to my ill  health, I will sell at my. residence, in  township 19, range 18, according to  the government survey, one plush  raspberry cow, aged 8 years. She is  of undoubted courage and gives milk  frequently. To a man who does not  fear death in any form she would be a  great boon. She is very much attached to her present home with a stay  chain, but will be sold to any one who  will agree to treat her right. She is  one-fourth Shorthorn and three-fourths  hyena. I will also throw in a double-  barrel shotgun, which goes with her.  In May she usually goes away for a  week or two and eturns with a tall,  red calf with wabbly legs. Her name  is Rose, I would rather sell her to a  non-resident."      '  A. D. Morrison is spending a week r  jr two here, getting  his  new jewelry  store in shape.  H. D.
