Copper is the only copper  producer that appears on the Boundary  shipping or smelting tonnage list this  week.  It is understood to be the intention  to add to the ore bunker capacity of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Rawhide  mine in this camp.  A total of 8,788 tons of ore were  treated this week at the B. C. Copper  Co.'s smelter, made up as lollows:  Mother Lode, 6,042; Napoleon, 373;  Oro Denoro, 173; limma, 5.  Not a wheel is turning just now in  Summit camp, the employees of the  several mines taking a vacation during  the coke shortage at the district smelters.  Franklin camp and the North Fork  section generally will experience not a  little development work this season,  from all appearances, several outfits  having gone up there already this  month. _      , ���-��������� -   ...'.1..  Manager Shallenberger states that  the new electric hoist at the Moreen  mine is giving the best of satisfaction.  The shaft will be sunk another hundred feet, when the big ledge will be  crosscut.  Recently the C. P. R. completed a  new spur for the B. C. Copper Co.'s  Oro Denoro mine in Summit camp. A  large tonnage can now be taken out of  this property most economically from  the lowest level yet opened up. This  mine now has three C.P.R. sidetracks  and one on the Great Nonhern.  It is hardly expected that shipping  will be resumed at the Snowshoe mine  before June 1st, owing to putting in  heavier rails and the electric locomotive equipment. When shipments are  recommenced, however, they are likely  to be heavier than ever before in the  history of the Snowshoe mine.  Coke is now beginning to come  across the mountains from the Crow's  Nest for the Boundary smelters, and,  as this is expected to continue in increasing quantity with more men constantly going to work in the lately  tied up coal mines, another week or  ten days should see enough coke on  hand so that the Granby and Dominion smelters can resume.  oo��mamwwmw��ammm��m  A force of 12 men is now employed  at the Jewel mine, Long Lake camp,  of which D. Roberts is superintendent.  A new pump is to be installed before  long, after which'the force is likely to  be increased and' development on the  lower levels be more vigorously prosecuted.  The hydro-electric power plant at  Cascade has been shut down for some  days, to give a chance to clean out the  long flume while, little was doing at  most of the Boundary's big mines and  smelters. Boundary's pioneer power  concern will soon -be doing business  again, however,.-though later it will  likely be closed and held as a reserve  by the West Kootenay Power & Light  Co., which recently purchased it out-  Jight.  The British Columbia Copper Co.  continues to be the only one of the  three large copper producers of the  Boundary that has coke enough to operate its large smeltmg.plant at Greenwood. It has been steadily operated  this, week with two furnaces, and while  coke has certainly, been none too  plenty, a little is coming in from the  Crow's Nest coke ovens, and it begins  to appear as though this smelter would  be able to run along till plentiful supplies are available from the collieries���  and, if so, it will be the only Boundary J  smelter in this fortunate position.  Some years ago the company owning the Little Bertha group on the  North Fork of Kettle river shipped  some 200 tons of ore to the Granby  and Northport smelters, getting returns of from $34 to $70 per ton.  Lacking transportation, however, the  property remained idle for a long time.  The new company recently taking over  the property is doing development and  making a good shewing, including such  prominent Grand Forks business men  as Jeff Davis, W. K. C. Manly, W. H.  May, Thos. powers, Dr. C. M. Kingston, R.A. Henderson and E.C. Lane.  Now that the Kettle Valley railway's  North Fork extension has been built  close to the property, the group has  excellent facilities for shipping. Alex  Miller, of Greenwood, is also largely  interested, an important ore find having been made in the mine within the  last two weeks.  APRIL SHOWED  117,907 TONS  Largest  Output   For  Many  Months,  But Most Boundary Shippers  Are Now Resting.  A compilation of figures regarding  the ore output of the mines of the  Boundary for the month of April shows  that that month was the best for more  than half a year in the Boundary^ although May is falling down badly', on  account of the coke shortage. Shipments from the several mines of the  Boundary that have been sending out  ore, are figured as follows, in tons:  Granby mines         B. C.

Whittaker, pastor of  the Methodist church, left Monday to  attend the annual Methodist confer-:  ence being held this week at Vernon,  expecting to be absent about ten days.  John W. Astley, for several years  superintendent ofthe Snowshoe mine  and later of the LeRoi mine, sailed  from England May 17th, and will  shortly be in British Columbia again,  in much improved health.  William Hunter, M.L.A., of Silver-  ton, owner of the William Hunter,  Ltd., with a large store in Phoenix,  was a visitoi here early this week.

R. ~R.~ Gilpin,"customs"officer at  Grand Forks, makes the following detailed report of the customs receipts at  the various sub-customs offices, as reported to that office for the month of  April:  Among the Railway Men.  The new steel on the C. P. R.  Phoenix branch has been laid from the  Snowshoe mine to Hartford Junction.  Last Wednesday a strike of machinists on the C. P. R. west of Kenora  took place, when many men laid down  their tools. At the Eholt shops of the  company about nine men <|uit work.  It is now stated that the work of  constructing the Kootenay Central  railway, from Golden to Cranbrook,  will be undertaken forthwith from both  ends of the proposed line. It will  open up a rich territory.  This week the C. P. R. wrecker  from Revelstoke finished picking up  the parts of the wreck of 14 ore cars  which ran away on February 2d, just  below the Rawhide mine, in which  Howard Rushton, a brakeman, was instantly killed.  The report is now current that it has  been fully decided to proceed at once  with the continuation of the construction of Kettle Valley extension up the  North Fork, about 16 miles ol it now  being ready for the steel, which has  been laid to the first crossing at Eagle  City, where a bridge is being put in.  Without previous notice, the summer  time table was placed in effect on the  Boundary system of the C. P. R. on  Wednesday of this week. The passenger train now arrives at Phoenix at  3.00 p m., and departs at 3.15 p.m.,  and no connections are made either  way at Eholt for Greenwood, Boundary Falls or Midway.  McGill Students Visit Phoenix.  Last week Friday a party of a score  of McGill summer mining school  students arrived here in their private  car, in charge of Prof. J. Bonsall  Porter. They had been to Greenwood  and the Mother Lode mine, and while  here all day Saturday took in the mines  of this camp. Prof. Porter has visiced  Phoenix several times before, and  found several friends here. He is professor of mining at McGill, and the  boys were taking in the important  mines on route. On their itinerary  were Cobalt, Lethbridge, Coleman,  Frank, Moyie, Nelson, Rossland and  Tr.iil, expecting to reach Vancouver  by May 24th.  April total    117,907  The Granby's record for April exceeded that for any month since last  fall, and the B. C. Copper Co.'s record  is the highest in the history of the  company. That of the Snowshoe,  also, is a large one for that mine. As  the B.C. Copper Co. is the only smelter having coke this month, the other  two have been idle and the May story  will be a very small one.  Thus far this year the Boundary output by months, in tons, has been as  follows: -  January      60,003  February      53>965  March...    100,219  April    n7.9��7  Grand Forks  * Green wood  Phoenix ...

Phoenix is becoming somewh it  noted for its mining syndicates���men  who get together, secure a/favorable  bond on some promising mineral claini  and agree to put their money into ih.  development of the property, with :i.  view to proving it up and eventually  making it a producer and of ��� value.  They have seen what has been accum  plished in the past by co-operation an-1  intelligent development, and are willing  to embrace favorable opportunities in  this line���thus doing legitimate mining  in-the ground, instead of mining the  public, and having the satisfaction of  knowing that their money has been  honestly spent, whatever the results  may be.  This'week another syndicate Was  formed here for this purpose, and is  composed almost entirely of men who  have been employed at the Granby  mines. It is called the LeRoi development syndicate, and has securedra  bond on a claim called the LeRoi,  about six miles from Camp M cKinney.  The syndicate met and organized this  week, Dan Patterson being chosen  president and Palmer Cook secretary  and treasurer. The other members of  the syndicate are John McKay, Nicholas Bailie, Walter Cook, Walter Ross,  John Wilson, Frank J. McDougall,  Gilbert Kay and Anson A. White���  ten in all.  A bond for $30,000 was taken on  the LeRoi, which is owned by James  Copeland, with liberal terms for payment, as the development proceeds.  It is a copper:gold proposition, and is  situated between the North and South  Forks of Rock creek. The ledge has  been cut for some 80 feet and so far  the hanging wall has not been found.  Assays thus far give eight per cent  copper, $3 in gold and 4 oz. silver.  The property already has a 50-foot  shaft, in ore all the way down.  Men were sent to the mine this  week, to prepare for work, and it is the  intention to sink the shaft another 50  feet at once, and crosscut the ledge.  As the property is located but four  miles from the V. V. & E. railway,  connected with a good wagon road,  shipments can be made readily when  the time arrives.  Latest Prices in Metals.

A report from Boston states that the  second installment, amounting to $2.50  per share, of subscriptions to 116,160  shares of B.C. Copper Co., Ltd.,  is now payable. An official says that  fully 99%, or practically all of the  allotment was taken by stockholders in  the ratio of 30% of holdings. Directors  take whatever remains.  In January the management decided  to increase the company's capital from  $2,000,000 to $3,000,000 by an  issue of 200,000 shares, par $5 each.  The company at that time had in its  treasury 212,800 shares; it was decided  to issue 116,160 to stockholders, so  that at the present time there are in  the treasury 96,640 shares of unissued  stock.  following report of the Phoenix public  school for April too late for insertion  last week:  Total daily attendance, 143s; actual  attendance, 1411^; average daily attendance, 76.S5; average actual attendance, 75,49; pupils actually  attending,  95-  I'KKI-'KCT   ATTKNDANCE.

Postmaster-General Rodolphe Lemieux  would do well to look   into the bona  fides of such concerns as the British-  American Copper Mines and Smelter  Co., and thereby save many a Canadian  dollar from getting into  the  hands of  sharpers.    The  issuance of a   fraud  order,   by,  both  governments,   would  soon put a  stop  to  their fishing for  suckers   through   the  mails,  at  least  under the rpresent; polysyllabic, mellif-  uous, hyphenated title.

But the.Pioneer also believes in being  fair, no matter who is concerned, and  wishes to score one in favor of the  Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux.  Mr. Lemieux has secured tlie cooperation of the London postoffice  authorities so that a low postage rate  is now made on British newspapers  and periodicals mailed to Canada.

The address of the President laid  stress on the continuous upward progress of the Company's business since  the standard price Slater Shoe became  the feature of their business.  The Slater Company  were the first  Canadian     manufacturers    to    adopt  newspaper advertising  as   an  adjunct  to the more economical selling of their  goods.    In   five years their  business  has more than doubled.    In-1906 the  iiicreiistt over 1905 was exactly $200,-  ��o��-    While   this  year  achieves   the  largest gross increase  in a single year,  ii is also by far the largest percentage  of increase   in   twelve   months.

After Personal Investigation  This District.  of  Forbes Ricard, a prominent mining  engineer, was employed a short time  ago to make an examination and to report on the properties of the British  Columbia Copper Co. While in the  Boundary, he also visited . the other  large copper mines of note. Recently  Mr. Ricard wrote an article on the  Boundary, .which appeared in the Mining and Scientific Press, of San Francisco, from which the following is taken:  By the Boundary district is meant  some 400 square miles of territory in  British Columbia just north of the  Washington state line and the international boundary; it is a district that  isyearly gaining a more prominent place  among the great copper-producing  areas of the world. An unknown  quantity a decade ago, and hindered  by.the low tenor of its ore, the mining and smelting development of the  *���- Boundary/ has grown to-a- splendid  achievement, made possible by metallurgical advance and the aid of modern mechanical contrivances, backed  by faith and a capable management.  As in many other mining regions  where precious metals are mined, the  first work was done on the shallow  alluvium. So here, in the 'sixties, on  Rock creek and Boundary creek,  placer mining attracted the early prospectors. It was not till 30 years later  that the properties now prominent became actively exploited. In a period  of six years, from 1901 to 1906, inclusive, they have produced 135,000,-  000 lbs. copper, having a bullion value  of approximately $24,000,000, of  which gold and siver combined would  constitute one-third of the total. The  results in tlie larger operation has  shown a profit of from $2 to $3 per ton;  although it is more than that with the  increasing production and higher copper prices of today. To make such a  result possible, in view ofthe low tenor  of the ore mined, the following features  are prominent:  1. An ore that fluxes itself.  2. Deposits of large dimensions and  fairly uniform contents.  3. Exceptional railroad facilities.  4. The combination of all the foregoing conditions to make possible the  working of these deposits on a maximum scale.  5. A smelting operation that requires  neither preliminary roasting nor a second fusion for the concentration of  matte.  While the aggregate tonnage of the  district represents mainly the immense  oatput of the Granby, it has been sup  plfmen'.ed by the production of the  British Columbia Copper Co., from  1001 to 1907, mid the Dominion Cop  per Co., from 1903 to 1907, and these,  taken together with the loss significant  production of n number of small mines  in the outlying camps, have contributed  no less ihan 4,500,000 tons, the gross  value of which ha* ranged between  $490 and $6.04 per ton, and at  - present copper prices would figure between $7 and $8 per ton for the same  metal contents. The production of  this district has trebled in the period  between 1901 and 1906, beginning  with 390,000 tons and growing to  1,160,000 tons.  As an example of the utilization of a  low-grade ore to commercial profit, the  mining-smelting operation of the  <>ranby company (the leading property  ���of this part of British Columbia) ranks  among the most successfully solved  problems in the mining world of today.  Though the ore contains $1.25 to  -$1.50 in gold and silver, besides 34 to  2�� lb. copper, nevertheless, it represents, together with the pyrrhotite ore  ���of the Tennessee Copper. Co., the  lowest-grade deposits that have been  made the source of profit by a copper-  ��iatting operation.  In the point of tonnage the Granby  is at the head of all the metal mines in  the Dominion. As cheap handling  has  been  imperative, it   has   brought  into play every possible economy of  detail and design, accompanied by an  energetic policy of expansion. The  head-frame of the new main three-  compartment shaft has been recently  finished and everything is being arranged for operations on a continually  increasing scale. The proportion between ore reserves and ore consumption is well maintained by means of  active mine development in something  like 1,000 acres of productive mineral  ground. The workings already aggregate 50,000 linear feet, besides diamond drill bores by which the ore-  zones are being tested. In a single  year 26,000 ft. of drilling have been  accomplished.  The ore is transported 25 miles,  from mine to smelter, at a cost of one  cent per ton-inile; power is transmitted  from the Kettle river and Bonnington  falls on the Kootenay river, the longer  distance being 80 miles. The installations for long-distance high-tension  current transmission give guarantee of  ample power for all future demands, at  a cost of about one-third that of the  steam-plants, which have been super  seded in the three principal companies,  that is, the Granby, British Columbia,  and Dominion. The rates of the two  smaller consumers is $33 per h.p. per  annum.  The first work in the Boundary dis  trict was the development of the  Mother Lode claim of the British Columbia Copper Co. at Deadwood,  followed by the opening of the Old  Ironsides claim of the Granby group at  Phoenix. Later there came the development of other camps, notably  Summit, where a good deal of work is  being done by the British Columbia  Copper Co. The enormous surface  showing that resulted from the early  work, induced the building of the Canadian Pacific Railway from Robson, on  the Columbia river, and, later on, the  extension of the Great Northern branch  line from Marcus, in Washington.  Whatever the influence of this competition upon freight rates in general,  there has been active competition between these railroads in bidding for  shipments ftom mine to smelter. This  applies particularly to the business of  the Granbv company, as the Dead-  wood properties of the British Columbia Co., including the Mother Lode,  do not yet get service from the Great  Northern. The Great Northern Railway was built on permission granted  by the Dominion government. It was  not subsidized either by land grant or  otherwise.  Granby operations began with two  small furnaces, increased to four and  then to six furnaces, with a total  capacity of r,8oo tons per day. Then  came the building of much larger furnaces, whereby the addition of two  furnaces more brought the capacity up  to 3,000 tons daily. Changes are now  being made that will make the  capacity of the smelter one-half as  'much again. Even then the mine will  not be overtaxed and the development  underground has already anticipated  the demands of this increasing smelter  capacity.  Ten years ago the Granby was a  prospect with not much more than 150  ft. of work done on the old Ironsides  claim, which has been the backbone of  the property. The great development  since then has been directed to the  exploiting of an orebody from 200 to  250 ft. wide and something like 2,030  ft. long, and with a healthy appearance  in depth. Other orebodies ;;re being  explored in the Gold Drop and Monarch ground of the same company.  These mine developments, taken all  together, could be brought up lo a  pitch making them capable of maintaining a production of 5,000 tons  daily. The Phoenix Pioneer and  Boundary Mining Journal, in reviewing  the progress of the past decade, uses a  picturesque phraseology when it writes:  "In 1896 the silence of the centuries  brooded over many places in the  Boundary where in 1906 the varied  voices of a complex civilization awake  the echoes from the fir-clad hills. In  ten short years the metamorphosis has  been complete; from a little-known  territory to one widely known; from  the prospector's tent to the modern  business buildings; from the primitive  pan to the modern smelting furnace."  A structural feature that more than  anything else determines, in my opinion, the extent and shape of the ore-  body of the Mother Lode--and it will  apply to many other mines of the  Boundary���is the tendency of the  lode-fissuring to flatten, so as to de  crease the angle with the bedding,  until the one plane so closely approximates the other that the two systems  of fracture merge. Where the orebody  already tends to spread away from the  Assuring and along the bedding planes  the result is a poor definition ofthe  ore, greatly in contrast to the clear-cut  lines prevailing where the Assuring  holds at a sharp angle to the bedding.  It may be assumed that the porphyry  masses that have been developed in  the workings of the Mother Lode have  played an important role in the general  mineralization and ore occurrence.  Diamond-drilling has a good field  here and has been successfully applied  to the finding and prospecting of ore-  bodies throughout the district. It will  doubtless continue to be utilized  largely in the future. The cost of  drilling ranges from $2 per. foot for  horizontal holes to $2.50 and $2.75  for angling and bottom holes.  In regard to the smelting problem,  the Boundary ores meet the factors of  iron sulphide proportion, lime, the inclusion of sufficient copper content for  the matting process, and the percentage  of free silica in the charge, in such a  way as to constitute a flux without admixture of foreign rock or custom ore.  Though some ores are bought, no  dependence is placed upon a supply of  custom ore high in copper, as is often  the case elsewhere. The charge is ore  and the ore is the charge. From 12  to 14% of coke is used. The smelting  practice requires no preliminary roast  and no bedding of the charge. Direct  smelting to matte of converter grade  dispenses with matte-concentration by  re-smelting���the double smelting, as it  were, which has in many cases to be  resorted to in order to get matte  sufficiently high in copper for converting. Z>'nc in harmful quantity is a  consideration that, is here eliminated.  Still, with all these favorable features,  it is no child's play to contend with  the necessary uncertainties of smelter  operation and a low grade ore,1 the  whole establishment being under pressure to- drive to the top notch of  capacity in keeping clear of the ever-  crowding ore supply, which in the one  operation ofthe Granby means something near 3,000 tons daily.  Where rapidity of handling and the  maintenance of a large scale of operation are so essential to profitable  operation, it is not to be wondered that  difficulties have beset smaller plants  when attempting to do from the start  what their predecessor had only done  after years of laborious experiment and  systematic upbuilding. And, as the  Alaska-Treadwell operations in the  early history of that company barely  paid with 250 to 300 head of stamps,  so in the gold-copper operations in the  Boundary, even with a high copper  quotation, there has been no real  profit until production reached something like 400,000 tons for the single  year. ..........  The situation in regard^to supply of  coke and coal has been very bad  recently; a shortage has been due to  the September-December (1906) strike  of the Fernie mines of the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. This shortage  has interfered seriously with the regular  operations of all the Boundary mines,  but it is only now being relieved.  With a full fuel supply re-established,  the'three larger companies operating  in the district should get their production and smelter consumption up to  5,000 to 5,500 tons daily, equivalent  to 40,000,000 to 45,000,000 lb. copper  for the year.  While the details of cost of operation of these three companies are  closely guarded in each instance, the  following crude tabulations puts together some information that covers  the subject in a general way. This  relates to the Granby, the costs of  which, as compared with the other two  companies, have been from t}4 to  " 'c.   lower   per   pound   of   copper,  j PROVINCIAL.

"Sometimes    it  settled   in   my  knees and lamed me so 1 could hardly  walk, at other times it would be in my  feet and hands so   I   was incapaciated  for duty.    One night when   I   was  in  severe pain and lame from it   my   wife  went to the drug store here and   came  back with a   bottle   of  Chamberlain's  Pain Balm.    Iwas rubbed with it and  found the pain had nearly gone during  the night.   T kept on   using   it' for  a  little more than two weeks and   found  that it drove the rhematism  away.    1  have not had  any   trouble   from   that  disease for over  three   months."
