McMaster, proprietor of  the Hotel Balmoral, returned on Saturday from a two weeks' visit at the  coast.  According to information received  by the Pioneer, the. plans of the promoters of the Greenwood-Phoenix long  and deep tunnel are being shaped up,  and it is thought that the launching of  Mr. and Mrs. J. Cooke, who came | the project, in its initial stage, will soon  to Phoenix recently from England, left, be successfully accomplished. By the  Wednesday for Eholt and the Oro I middle of this month, or inside of two  Denora respectively. 1 weeks, the engineers for the company  Eric Jackson left last week for Yic-iare expected to arrive in to Boundary  B. C. COPPER CO'S MllS NOW OPERATING  Miners Started Work at the Big'Mother Lode, Emma and Oro  Denoro on Thursday*  Long Tie-up of Boundary Mines is Over and j There is Employment for Several Hundred  More Men--General Rejoicing in Boundary Gamps.  toria to represent Phoenix Lodge No  28, at a meeting of the Grand Lodge  of Knights of Pythias in that city.  Last Tuesday the best news that has  conge to the Boundary in months, was  made known in Phoenix, when it was  reported that the British Columbia  Copper company would resume operations at once at both mines and  smelter. On communicating with J.  E. McAllister, the general manager,  the report was confirmed, he stating  that the company would begin employing men on Wednesday morning at its  big. Mother..X-bde mine, Deadwood  camp; Emma-and Oro Denoro mines,  Summit" camp, and also at the 'smelter  adjoining.Greenwood, and at least six  hundred men would'be required? :    :���:���  There, was a- good -deal-wf-rcjoiclng  at Greenwood and Phoenix -over,the  above announcement, as well as  throughout the rest of the Boundary,  meaning as it does the addition of  several hundred men to the wage  earners of the Boundary. The B. C.  Copper company expects to pay about  the same scale of wages as that now in  force by the Granby Consolidated.  As soon as the forces at the several  properties can   be  organized, and   the  ore bins . filled, the three-furnace  smelter of the company will be blown  in, and as the present\price of copper  is so low, it is certain that the B. C.  Copper company will endeavor to  operate at fullest capacity, in order to  reduce the cost per.pound of copper���  just as the Granby company does now.  It is nearly six months since the  mines and smelter of the B. C. Copper  company closed, being jijona-at-the  time all the other "Boundary copi. er  producejrsjceased^ last" November,, because of low copper and- high operating costs. At that time the company  was ^mployir>ffa^ut"4��&mo��-at. mines  and smelter, but in resuming it is expected that the force will be greatly increased. The miners of the Boundary  ' have expressed themselves as ready to  go to work, so that the company is  having no difficulty in proceeding with  operations, and a large number of  men are already at work at each of the  company's mines, where the whistles  are blowing regularly.  As the B. C. Copper company has a  contract for treating the ore of the Con-  Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Jones, who resided in Phoenix for the past three  years, left last week for Edmonton,  Alberta, where Mr. Jones has a ranch.  Rev C. Wellesley Whittaker went  to Nelson on Tuesday to attend the  annual "district meeting of the Methodist church, which opened Wednesday.  Mrs. A. B. Hood and daughter,  who left Phoenix about eight months  ago and have, been visiting at Sher-  brooke, Quebec, returned last week to  Grand Forks.  VV. J. Twiss, of Vancouver, provincial manager for the Mutual Life of  Canada, who has been visiting Phoenix  periodically for the past nine years, was  in the city on Wednesday.  solidated Co.'s Snowshoe mine, in this  camp, it is more than likely that work  at the latter will be resumed before  long, which should add another 150 or  200 men to the camp's payroll���the  B. C. Copper company needing the  Snowshoe product to keep the smelter  up to full capacity.  By  next   week  some   time,  as the  smelter Jias-n6w..n_large.sirpi)ly���Qf..coke,  on hand, the B. C. Copper company'sll nj��  reduction works should be handling in  the neighborhood of. 2,000. tons of ore  per   day,   and   the   converting   plant  '"'."

He  blister at the rate of 1,500,000 pounds  per month. And this increased and  most welcome activity in the Boundary  should mean the increase of the  monthly payroll from $50,000 to $60,-  000 per month at least.  During 1907, with the last two  months omitted, when the mines were  not working, the B. C. Copper company's mines shipped 242,788 tons of  ore, as follows: Mother Lode, 208,-  321; Emma, 18,274; Oro Denoro, 14,-  481; B.C. mine, 1,712.  Boundary Mining Notes  Next Monday is the monthly payday in Phoenix camp.  The whistle of the Emma mine had  a musical ring to it on Tuesday.  The former superintendent of the  Skylark, William Rowe, has taken the  management of the Little Bertha mine,  on   the   North   Fork of Kettle  river.  The Mother Lode grade was put in  shape last week for mine operations,  four C P.R. engineers���E Corry, A.  M. Smith, C. S. Ross and J. R. Walm-  sley���spending two days on it.  Thirty tons of ore were shipped from  the Ciescent mine, in Skylark high  grade ore camp, to Trail smelter, on  Thursday. The ore is from stoping  done on the 225-foot level enrlier in  the year, the mine not being in operation at present.  The Dominion Copper company's  mines are all being.kept in shape, and  the smelter in readyness, to start up  when the necessary instructions come.'  Manager W. C. Thomas, of Boundary  Falls, returned on Monday from a  business trip to Spokane, but has no  information to impart as to the company resuming.  Considerable work of general repairing was in progress at the Emma  last week, and the mine was in a very  creditable condition for opening up on  Wednesday. The water had been kept  pumped out, and many improvements  had been made in the fittings of the  mine by Superintndent Lover and O.  T. Scott. The new bunk house, completed just before -the shutdown, will  accommodate about half the men of  the mine.  Granby ore shipments for April totalled 87,202 tons, which although  considerably less than the record month  of March was greater than for any  month previous to March. The decrease from March is the result of one  or more furnaces at the smelter being  out of commission, while being connected with the new steel flue dust chamber,  and the smelter treating less accordingly. The shipments from the Granby mines for the first four months of  1908 were 351,784 tons, as compared  with 201,001 tons shipped during the  same months in 1908.  SHORT STRIKE OF  COAL MINERS  International  Men Return  to  Their Work.  Last week Wednesday a strike of  some 500 men employed by the International Coal and Coke Co., at Coleman, Alberta, took place, but lasted  only a few days, the men all returning  to work on Monday of this week.  Some new work was to be started,  and it was agreed by the joint committee from the union and employers  that this work should be done at the  start by day's labor. It was so begun,  and then the union ordered the two  new men to quit work, and tied up the  entire property to enforce the demand  The rank and file of the union, however, soon discovered that the attitude  taken could not be held, and the men  were all ordered by the union to return  to  work again. . Most   of  the   actual  gging of coal is done by the piece,  as a rule, but this new work was to be  an exception for a time, at least, as  per orders of the joint committee.  The strike, therefore, was the result of  a misunderstanding more than anything else.  Boundary Side Lights  Mrs. J. A. Morrin left on Saturday  via the Arrow Lakes for Peachland to  join Mr. Morrin. A number of her  friends were at the depot to see her off  and she will be much missed among a I  large circle .of acquaintances' in  "*'  from Chicago to lay out the tunnel  site and get ready for the beginning of  actual work.  E.   H.   Mortimer,,  formerly of Phoenix,  of  Greenwood,  was  a welcome  Every Confidence Id Dominion Copper Co.  G. L. Walker, Boston Commercial,  says: "Dominion Copper interests state  that the company expended its treasury  surplus of about $400,000 on mine  development, equipment and smelter  improvements last year, and that it]  was a heavy loser when the price of  copper declined from 25 to 12^  cents, as it had a large amount of  metal in transit and in process which  had not yet been sold. The company's  increase of production had only fairly  begun when the decline in metal prices  occured. The company is said to have  aoout $60,000 worth of supplies, and  $15,000 cash on hand. It owes about  $27,000, and has $800,000 of bonds  outstanding. Some of the inside interests express a determination to raise  the necessary money and pay the bond  interest, and also to provide for a resumption of operations at the mines  after copper prices advance a little  further. They have every confidence  in the value of the. company's properties.  The assizes open at Greenwood on  May 26.  The C.P.R. hotel at Grand Forks  has been purchased by  P. Donaldson.  The firemen of Grand Forks purpose holding a celebration in that city  on May 25th.  J. A. Chenier, fruiter and tobacconist, of Greenwood, has assigned for  the benefit of his creditors.  Mrs. W. S. Horton died in Greenwood hospital on Wednesday. Deceased leaves a husband and six children.  At the recent provincial teach'ers'  convention in Vancouver, \V. May, of  Grand Forks was elected second vice-  president.  The road between Eholt and the  North Fork is in very bad condition at  present, and should be given the attention of the authorities.  The Canadian Mining Institute proposes to establish a library in Greenwood, for the use of prospectors, as-  sayers and mining engineers, if the board  of trade will provide a place ror it.  Robert Scott, of Caledonia, Ontario,  brother of O. T. Scott, bookkeeper at  the Emma mine, arrived at the Oro  Denoro a few days ago. He is having  a ranch cleared along Eholt creek.  Messrs. Hodges and Williams of  Grand Forks, accompanied by their  wives and daughters, came into Greenwood on Sunday with their autos. This  is the first time that automobiles have  been driven into Greenwood from an  outside point and makes a new record  for transportation in the Boundary.  ���Ledge.  G. Muoal, a successful fruit farmer of  North Yakima, is in Grand Forks looking for an opportunity to purchase fruit  land, He is most enthusiastic over the  futureof the Kettle river valley. He says  that the land there is much superior to  that of the Yakima valley, aud when  the proposed irrigation systems bef.in  operating in this valley he predicts that  land there will bring the same prices  that it does now in Yakima valley.  Land in the Yakima valley sells for  $200 per acre.  in town calling on old friends. He  said the residents of Greenwood were  rejoicing in having just received the  information of the resuming of the B.  C. Copper company.  W. B. Willcox, late editor of the  Fioneer, accompanied by Mrs. Willcox and daughter, Elizabeth, left on  Saturday for Spokane, where he will  remain for a few days before taking a  trip to the coast. He will take a well-  earned holiday of some weeks before  re-entering business again.  Mayor D. J. Matheson and Alderman L. Y. Birnie are spending a few  days fishing at Fish lake. They tool:  Mr. Birnie's famous boat the "Mad  Woman" and tackle such as has never  been seen near Fish lake before, and a  vehicle capable of carrying home hundreds of pounds of trout. For our  next issue we expect they will furnish  the Pioneer with an up-to-date fish  story.  Latest Prices in Metals  Nkw York���Copper, electrolytic, $12.  60 @ $12.62;  lake. $12.12>s @ $12.87^.

The title of the corporation is lo be  the Greenwood-Phoenix Tunnel Co,  Limited, arid it will have a capitals t-  tion of $5,000,000 in one-dollar shares.  Of this amount $2,000,000 will be in  the treasury. It is proposed to absorb  the following companies or properties,  on the first mile of the route of the  tunnel, on the basis as outlined below,  purchasing the same outright with  tunnel stock as specified.  Strathmore, Nelson and Caleb fraction, 200,000 shares.  Crescent and Crescent No. 2, "200,-  000 shares.  Chicago, B.C. Mining company  (Don Pedro, Lake and Yellowstone),  200,000 shares.  Defiance and fraction, 50,000 shares.  Preston Mining company, 50,000  shares.  Prince Henry Mining company, 50,-  000 shares.  Last Chance Mining company, 100,-  000 shares.  These propositions  are now  being  _     submitted to the respective companies,  Phoe-1 speciai meetings called for consideration of the same, and  some have' already been ratified. - -;,  As stated before in the Piontcr,  while the long and deep tunnel project  will start from Greenwood, it is hardly  likely it will reach Phoenix for years to  come, if ever. But it will be a.good  thing just the same for many bf the  high grade mines, as it will tap a  number of rich ore bodies on the respective claims, at great depth, give  natural drainage, do away with hoisting  and ore hauling (both expensive items),  and bring the ore to the mouth of the  proposed double track tunnel, on or  near the Strathmore claim, at the  minimum of expense. If driven but a  mile, or say 6,000 feet, it will reach all  the mines above referred to, and be a  good thing in nearly every way.  National Stock Company.  Commencing   next    Monday,  the  National   Stock  company  will be  at  the Phoenix opera house for one week,  with a change of bill every night.   The  company comes highly  recommended  for high class plays.    They played two  weeks at Nelson to large audiences and  both daily papers commented favorably  on the attractions. The entire company  headed by Miss Jean Russell and Roy  Brandon,  are  all  first  class, high-salaried people.    Few companies of such  merit visit the Boundary country.

A. A. Barnet, formerly of Phoenix,  but now a resident of Greenwood, is  out once more this week, after having  a tree fall on him while hauling ties on  Skylark wagon road.  The moving picture shows in the opera house on Tuesday and 'Friday  nights attracted good audiences who  appeared to thoroughly enjoy the lifelike scenes on the canvas.  A May day dance was held last  night in Miners' Union hall in aid of  the Phoenix baseball clubhand it is  now expected the enthusiastics will  get busy on the diamond.  The rake and a camp fire would go  a long way to improving the yards and  surroundmgs'of many homes in Phoenix. The "cleaning up" habit is something that should become general.  Work is being started again at the  Golden Eagle mine, about ten miles  up the North Fork of Kettle river from  Grand Forks and is likely to be vigorously prosecuted when the work gets  well under way.

In last week's issue of the Pioneer  appeared a description of the self-  dumping device lately put into effect  at the 400 foot level of the Granby  mines. Those who have seen the  thing in operation are loud in their  praises of its simplicity and feasibility.  Mr. Knott, who was draftsman for the  Granby Co. last year when the car was  planned and experimented on and  brought to success, thinks that the  Pioneer was not quite clear regarding  the part which he had in getting up  the self-dumper, he not claiming all  the credit, but thinking he is entitled  to more than was given to him by this  paper, from what he had been ab'e to  learn regarding the invention and its  practicability.  In order to get the matter straight,  the Pioneer man this week was present  when Mr. Hodges and Mr. Knott  were talking over this phase of the  matter, and the conclusion is that both  gentlemen are entitled to some credit  in the matter. Mr. Hodges said he  had no wish or desire to detract from  the credit  due to Mr.. Knott in the  The Auto Filler  Fountain  SELF-FILLING,  SELF-CLEANIN.G.

It has been generally understood in  town for the past week that the Great  Northern would commence their Sunday train service to Phoenix again'  starting tomorrow. This, however, is  not the case. The Sunday tram will  be operated between Spokane and  Marcus, but will not come to the Canadian side.  Roy Thompson, formerly a resident  here and a brother of J. E. VV.

Griffith has seven men employed on the Westmouut on Ten  Mile Creek, in the Slocan from which  he ships a carload of selected ore  every month, which goes about $3,000  to the carload. He located the West-  mount in 1896 and at once went to  work on it, and has remained doggedly  at work ever since. He performed the  wonderful feat of driving a 1,000 foot  tunnel single handed. Often for three  months at a time he never saw a human face or heard the sound of a human voice except his own. He stayed  with the game steadily and is now  meeting his reward in. the shape of  profits on the. ore which he is shipping  The vein of the Westmount variies in  width from six inches to a foot. The  richest ore is. at the lowest level yet  reached. Mr. Griffiths is only awaiting for spring to sink again and run  out one more level. If the ore values  persist he will have a bonanza.

In the early days of The Financial  News in London an American of the  most pronounced type called upon me  to tell me about the extraordinary richness of property in Colorado which he  had for sale. It was in the afternoon,  and my visitor quite evidently lunched  not wisely but far too well. When he  had talked me into a state of nerves  and himself only a trifle less than half  sober, I asked him what the quarts  yielded in gold. He replied: "I  can't quite remember; but it's either  five ounces to the ton or five tons to  the ounce; I'm not sure which."  At the height of the West Australian  mining boom a property favorably  reported on was acquired for an English company. ��� While the company  was in the process of incubation a  large block of rock, very rich in gold,  was sent to the London office, where  it was exhibited to all comers, and  helped greatly to attract subscriptions.  The prospectus was well received, all  the shares offered.���Ex.

INTKRESTED    IN   THE  COPPER   MINING    INDUSTRV  Copper aid Steel.  Recent reports from London repre  sent that in all probability copper has  touched bottom and will advance  smartly in the next sixty days, says  Mines and Mining. There are a few  open accounts, but they do not cut  much of a figure. On the other hand  consumers are holding off to see if the  market is going any lower.  One reason for this is that throughout Europe and the British Isles few  new orders are going forward for electrical work or other engineering operations. In Europe there is nothing  that points to any rapid recovery.   But  icO'ilrXKs  ooo.ooo pounds. Among these sales  the United Metals Selling Compiny  has order.- for future delivery covering  50,000,000 pounds, and independent  producers 20,000,000 and 30,000,000  pounds respectively, the entire amount  being so'd at 13 cents. The surplus  stocks, it will be seen, are exhausted  and orders are coming in ahead of production for millions of pounds. It is  believed hy conservative producers and  dealer's that copper will go to 15 cents  in the next thirty days.  The United States Steel corporation  is now operating about 58 per cent .of  its capacity with inquiry for its product  There is never a question as to  the absolute purity and health-  fnlness of food raised with  D?

Deane had sold the  Nelson Daily News to a syndicate  composed of local men, largely Conservatives. The Daily Canadian, which  was Conservative, has been merged  with the News, and thus a strong combination is made.  [ Mr. Deane published the Daily  News for six years, and sent out whaf  is admitted by all practical newspaper  men to have been the best daily, jn a  city of same size, in Canada. It was  always an uphill job r to . make both  ends meet, and few would have cared  to have tackled the proposition for the  mere gloiy that was in it. Mr., Deane  spared no effort or expense to give the  people of the interior a daily of which  they might feel proud.  - W. G. McMorris, the new manager,  grew up with Mr. Deane on the News,  and has made good. If the chief  feature of the News is not <to be of a  political nature, with its new financial  backing it should continue, to be of the  greatest utility in the Kootenay. If it  is to be merely a  other engineering works begin to revive copper will gradually move up  and better conditions prevail.  In this country there is already seen  a wholesome revival in all branches of  business, and copper, zinc and lead  are looking up with a smile. The  effects of the recent financial flutter are  almost forgotten and normal conditions  are not far away. So far our agricultural outlook is highly promising, and  that of itself stimulates the metal  market and uusines-'in general. It is  confidently predicted that a gradual  improvement in all lines of business  will characterize the remainder of the  year, and in view of that feature the  metal markets will take on more  activity, become stronger and more  stable.  Already  there is  considerable   activity in steel, and as the season advances that condition will increase in a  marked degree.    A  large amount of  railroad building is blocked out m this  country for trie next few years and that  means    more   steel,    more    electric  powers, telephone and telegraph lines,  increased demand for copper, iron and  other metals.    In fact were it not for  iron and its products; copper and   its  products; zinc and  lead, with plenty  of silver and gold on the side, the business world, would  stop and  back to barbarism.  In the last ten days the demand for  copper has 'been so great that the metal  jumped up to 13 cents and over and  copper producing companies have sold  ahead to the extent of more than 100,-  ital of ihe great corporation is now  $240,000,000, and its annual report for  the past year, which is in the hands of  the printers, will show it to be the  greatest dividend payer of any corporation in th,�� world, not excepting the  Standard Oil Company. It is claimed  that as soon as the money is in sight  the railroads will place orders for 500,-  000 tons of steel rails a month for the  next eighteen months, or a total of  9,000,000 tons.  If ihe manipulators will give the  markets normal play the great staple  metals���silver,, copper, lead, zinc and  iron, will at all'times command a fair  price, both to the producer and consumer, and consumption will keep  pace with production the world over,  bakingpoWdef  A pure, cream of tartar powder  Its fame is world wide  No alum; no phosphate of lime  DRAYING  Tracer.

Incidentally, it is interesting to note  that the World, of Vancouver, is now  the only Liberal daily paper on. the  mainland of British Columbia.
