W. C. Thomas, the  superintendent, was there and courteously accompanied the Pioneer man  over the works. The company's  smelter has now been operated under  the present management for six months,  and the results are plainly given out to  be most satisfactory, when everything  is considered.  Both furnaces were found in full  blast as usual, treating about 600 tons  of ore per 24 hours���and the. ore all  comes from the mines owned by the  company, the Brooklyn, Stemwinder,  Rawhide, Sunset and Mountain Rose.  No custom ore is handled at present.  Everything was moving as smoothly as  clockwork, and the men seemed to be  a contented lot. At present no men  are employed at the smelter, but this  number may be somewhat increased as  soon as enlargements already ordered  are gotten under way, which will be  very soon. The present blast furnaces  are, one of them, of the Union Iron  Works make, while the other came  from the Denver Engineering Works.  The third furnace, a mammoth affair,  now being manufactured by the Trayler  Engineering Works, oPAllentown.Penn.,  will be as large as the other two combined. This will be placed in commission some time early in the fall,  giving a total capacity of about 1,200  tons of ore daily. Preparations for  this giant furnace are now being made  by Mr. Thomas.  Some ol the Improvements.  Since Supt. Thomas took charge of  this smelter last fall he has worked a  metamorphosis around the works in  many ways, simplifying the work and  working out more than one economy  in operation. For instance, a thousand-foot railway spur has been built by  tbe C P.R., for handling the matte  that is shipped to the B. C. Copper  Co., at Greenwood, for converting.  Matte was formerly hoisted to the  upper railway tracks at considerable  expense. Then the matte itself is run  off from the furnaces is an ingenious  manner, that even a novice can see at  a glance is a vast improvement over  the old system.  Mr. Thomas has been trying to  work out a scheme for mechanical  charging, but the ore binsare so constructed that this plan has not yet been  evolved, owing to the many difficulties.  In the meantime the old system of  hand charging is still employed and  will be continued for the present, at  least.  A new machine shop, about 35x75  feet, has been completed, and the  machinery ordered. This machinery  was ordered last November, for 60  days' delivery���about $6,000 worth���  and so far but one small machine, of  little use by itself, has put in an appearance. This is, consequently, a  tender spot with the superintendent,  but he still has faith that it will arrive  this year, if his patience holds out.  This machinery will be of tbe latest  pattern for the work intended, and will  be driven by electric power. Incidentally, two 100 h.p. and one 75 h.p.  motors to drive it are already on the  ground, being of the Bullock make.  This week work was started on moving the blacksmith shop to a point  immediately adjoining the machine  shop.  Quite recently a new Davenport  saddle tank locomotire was added to  the equipment, it being used to carry  away the slag from the furnaces. The  old locomotive has been repaired and  will be held in reserve till the third  furnace is in commission.  A few days ago Mr. Thomas gave  an order to the Jenckes Machine Co.,  of Sherbrooke, Quebec, for a large ore  crusher, of the Blake-Farrel type, with  jaws 30x42 inches, the machine being  like the big machines in use at the  Granby mines, but a trifle smaller in  size.  When the West Kootenay concern  gets its high tension power lines built  down to Boundary Falls from Greenwood, three or four miles, this summer,  steam power, which is being used at  present in the smelter, will be done  away with for electricity, the latter being much more economical and convenient in every way.  With tbe other improvements, the  ore bin capacity of the smelter will be  materially increased���something that  has long been needed. In fact, the  work to this end is now under way.  Coleman coke and coal is used exclusively at Boundary Falls, and is under  stood to give the best of satisfaction to  the company. About every other day  a carload of copper matte is shipped  to Greenwood for converting, and generally speaking the work done at the  smelter has been of a most satisfactory  and encouraging character. Mr.  Thomas does not have any trouble  whatever with his employees, and they  seem to get along together like a happy  family. Before snow falls the improvements and enlargements should be  completed, when the smelter " will  double up its daily copper output, and  cut just that much more of a figure in!  mining and smelting circles in the  Boundary. There is no hesitation in  saying that, in the opinion of the  Pioneer man, the concern is in most  competent hands, and has every chance  of proving a commercial success.  PHOENIX WON  OUT AT MIDWAY  Took Prizes   at  Empire Day  Celebration.  Boundary Mining Notes  Diamond drilling is being iteadily  prosecuted by the Dominion . Copper  Co. in the Brooklyn Mine.  This week the work of sinking the  main shaft at the Emma 100 foot to  the 250 foot level was started.  Diamond drilling is shortly to be  done by the B. C. Copper Co. on the  Jnmbo and Minnie Moore claims, adjoining the Emma.  In the Strathmore the winze from  the 35-foot crosscut of the drift is now  down about 50 feet. More ore will be  sent out next month.  A larger boiler has been secured for  the Skylark, and will be installed as  soon as possible and sinking in the  main shait continued.  The main shaft in the Mother Lode,  which is being deepened to the 600-  foot level or thereabouts, is now down  a depth of about 430 feet.  Work on widening and timbering  the main three compartment shaft of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Idaho  mine is now down about 75 feet or  more.  In a short time the Chicago men  interested in the Helen and Preston  will make a visit to the Boundary,  when further development is expected  to be arranged for.  Thus'far the B. C Copper Co. has  done some 1300 feet of diamond drilling in the ore bodies of the Oro  Denoro, on which property the company has an option.  The showing on the Bay mine is reported to be very good indeed, the  work done lately by H. V. Fuller, the  owner, showing an excellent body of  high grade free milling gold ore.  Last Wednesday the employees of  the B. C. Copper Co.s smelter met  the management, and agreed upon a  three years' wage schedule, the minimum being $2.75 per day for nine  hours.  A plan is on foot for the formation  of a new company, to take in the  Idola, Lake, Don Pedro, Yellowstone,  Yellowstone fraction and Crescent  fraction, six favorably known claims in  Skylark camp, with a capital of about  $2,000,000.  Recently the Dimond fraction,  Texas and Mayfield, adjoining the  Providence and Fremont mines in  Greenwood's high grade belt, have  been bonded by Smith Curtis to  Chicago capitalists, and development  work is to be undertaken.  The West Kootenay Power & Light  Co. is making surveys for its branch  pole line to Summit camp from Phoenix to furnish electric energy for the  new air compressing plant to be installed by the B. C. Copper Co. at the  Emma mine The old Mother Lode  compressor has just been placed in  operation at this property for temporary use.  On the new machinery and improvements being made at the British Co  lumbia Copper Co.'s Greenwood  smelting plant, there will be a freight  bill of something like $40,000. Some  cars of machinery have already been  received. About a million and a half  feet of lumber will be used, it being  supplied by the Yale-Columbia Lumber Co., largely from the Cascade  mill.  On or about the first of June the B.  C. Copper smelter at Greenwood will  be blown out to permit of the extensive enlargements which have been  under way for some months. With the  exception of the converting plant, the  entire smelter will not be operated  again until everything is in readiness  to blow in the three large furnaces now-  being manufactured by the Power &  Mining Machinery Co., of Cudahy,  Wis.  As soon as ore shipments are dis  continued at the Mother Lode mine���  consequent upon the company's smelter being blown out for enlargements  ���more activity than ever will prevail  at the mine, and all efforts will be concentrated on development in preparation for the increased output to 1,500  tons daily, required when the smelter  is blown in again. The present force  of about 125 men at the mine will be  increased as soon as may be to probably 200 employees.  Base   Ball,   Hose   Race   and  Mountain Climbing.  One of the most successful celebrations ever held in the Boundary coun  try, and certainly the most successful  yet pulled off in Midway, took place  ihere on Victoria Day, last Thursday.  The entire Boundary country contributed generously in attendance, and it  is estimated that nearly a couple of  thousand visitors were there to see the  sports. They came from Chesaw,  Curlew, Rock Creek, Boundary Falls,  Greenwood,' Phoenix, Grand Forks,  Eholt, etc. Phoenix sent its liberal  quota by the hundreds, and they all  report having had a good time. Incidentally, they had good luck in the  sports, and the only thing they did not  win prizes in were the horse races, in  which no Phoenix horses were entered,  this not being a horse town.  The great attraction of the occasion  was the baseball tournament, and the  Phoenix team won. back the varied  assortment of laurels repeatedly lost so  far this year, and. while they were doing it, took the $100 prize. Four  teams were entered, Grand Forks,  Greenwood, Midway and Phoenix.  The first game was between Phoenix  and Grand Forks, and resulted in the  former winning with a score of 1 r to 1.  The second game brought Midway and  Greenwood into opposition, and Midway took it with 11 to 7 runs. Then  Midway and Phoenix crossed bats on  the diamond, and one of the best  games ever played in the Boundary  was the result, Phoenix finally coming  out ahead with the close score ol 4 to  3. Intense interest was manifested all  through the game, which was Midway's  up to the eighth inning, and a goodly  bunch of money (hanged hands on the  result. Both teams w;ere in fine condition and played good ball: Doubtless there will be more good games at  the tournament to be held here Dominion Day.

Miss Christy   McLeod  passed away  Thursday   morning    at   the   Phoenix  General hospital, having   been   unable  to rally from a complication of diseases.  An operation was performed a day  or  two previously, in the hope  of saving-  her life, but   without   avail.    The  remains were taken east  on   yesterday's  C.P.R. tiain   by her  cousin,   Marcus  Martin, and will be interred at   Mount  Hope, Dundas, Prince Edward Island,  the home of Mr. Martin and  her  parents.     Miss   McLeod   was  about   24  years of age at the time of her   death,  and had lived here for some   months,  with her  cousin,   Mrs.   Dan   Martin.  Alex   McPherson   and   Alex   Gillis,  Phoenix residents, were also cousins of  the deceased.    She had   not   been   in  very robust health for  some  time, but  had not complained.    About the   10th  of the month   she  was   taken   to  the  hospital.    The funeral was   held   yesterday at 2 p.   m.   from   Mr. Martin's  residence.

Lome A. Campbell, of Rossland,  manager ofthe West Kootenay Power  & Light Co., was in the city Saturday.  Smith Curtis, of the Denoro Mines,  Ltd., was over from Rossland this  week, visiting Eholt, Denoro and other points.

A hub and hub hose reel race was  scheduled to take place, and the Phoenix team was hand, on that assurance.  The Greenwood team, however, did  not show up and the prize of $75 was  awarded to the Phoenix team.  In the mountain climbing race,  James Morgan, of Phoenix, won the  $20 prize, making the trip to the  mountain and back in 28 minutes.  Excellent music was furnished by the  Greenwood band.  Trains Crowded lo OverflowlBf.  Evidently the C. P. R. did not anticipate any such crowd on its special  train as it had. When it pulled out  of Phoenix there wer�� 100 people  aboard (hundreds having gone in special  conveyances). At Eholt about 250  more from Grand Forks, etc., joined  the excursion. At Greenwood scores  and scores got aboard, and three box  cars were added to the tram. At one  time it looked as though a few ore  cars and one or two of Pit Burns' refrigerator cars would have to be com-  tnandered to hold the crowds en route  to Midway. By the time Midway  was reached about 1,000 persons were  attached to the train���some jammed  into the eight cars like sardines in a  box, others on the roof and steps and  what not, but they all reached Midway safely. It was a good thing for  the C.P.R., the train pulling out of  Midway on the return tiip about 7:30,  and leaving qute a number there.  On the return trip not a little criticism was expressed against the C. P.  R. management, as the cars weie not  lighted till the train nearly reached  Greenwood. It was a splendid place  for pickpockets to operate.  Born, to the wife of T. H. Rea,  Grand Forks, May 16th, a daughter.  Anaconda is to receive mail over the  Great Northern on or about July ist.  Rev. F. A. Maclnnis, the new Presbyterian clergyman for Midway and  Boundary Falls, has arrived and started  work.  Greenwood's tax rate has been fixed  at 1 7 mills for the current year, and J.  P. McLeod has been appointed city  solicitor.  Manager K. G. Warren, of the  Greenwood Electric Co., expects to  have the new power plant at Boundary  Falls in operation by October, when  the company will be independent of  the large power companies.  E. R. Birnie, of Winnipeg, where he  represents the Yale-Columbia Lumber  Co., was visiting his brother, L. Y.  Birnie, yesterday.  T. J. Ferguson, of this camp, has  been made superintendent of the Iron  Mask mine at Kamloops, where his  family expects to join him.  F. W. Thomas, of New York, consulting engineer for the B. C. Copper  Co., who has been down to the coast,  was in Greenwood again this week.  S. C. Holman, superintendent of the  Mother Lode mine, was in Phoenix  yesterday, seeing his father and mother  off on a trip to Massachusetts and New-  Hampshire.  Julius Ehrlich, manager for P.Burns  & Co., Ltd.,  at Greenwood,  who  recently left on a vacation to be spent in  Germany, is now on the  briny,  cross  ing the Atlantic.  James T. Russell came over from  Nelson Saturday, and returned Thursday with his family. They will settle  on the fruit ranch Mr. Russell purchased recently on Kootenay lake, nine  miles from Nelson.  R. B. Kerr and wife, formerly of  Phoenix, who spent a year in California, recently went to F'ernie to settle,  but have left the Crow town and are  now in Victoria, where they expect to  remain permanently.  George Robbins, who is interested  in mines near Chewelah, Wash., spent  the week in camp. He is a son of  Frank Robbins, M.E., who had charge  of the development work on the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder in this  camp for Mackenzie, Mann &��� Co. six  or seven years ago.  Another prominent low grade Boundary mine was added to the de\elop-  ment list this week. Last Monday a  crew of men was sent up to the Big  Copper, in Copper camp, some three  or four miles beyond the Mother Lode  in.Deadwood camp, to begin the active  work of opening up this long and  favorably known property. William  Hannah is in charge of the eight men  that have started work.  Within the last few days a deal has  been closed by the owners of the Big  Copper for the transfer of the mine to  Boston capitalists, whose identity  has not yet been given out. W. T.  Smith, the well known Greenwood  mining man, and J. C. Haas, M. E.,  of Spokane, negotiated the transfer.  No details Ijave yet been given out for  publication, but it is understood that  the deal runs up over $100,000, a cash  payment down and the balance at the  end of six months. The property is  owned, one-quarter by John Moran,  the George B. McAulay estate one-  half, and Chief Inspector of Customs  S. W. McMichael, of Toronto, one-  quarter. The latter was in Greenwood  a few days since attending to the details of the option and bond, which  was given to the Massachusetts men.  Probably no low grade mine in the  Boundary that has not been steadily operated, has been held in more favorable  opinion by those best acquainted with  this district, than the Big Copper. Several times in past years attempts were  made to secure control of the property,  but the owners would not part with it  except on their own terms, which were  thought to be pretty high by prospective purchasers. Last winter not quite  600 tons of ore were sent out from the  property arid treated at the Greenwood  smelter, the wagon haul alone being  three or four miles. This ore is  understood to have given returns of  something like $14 per ton���which is  certainly most favorable, as low grade  copper properties in the Boundary go.  The Big Copper is described as a  mountain of ore that merely has to be  quarried out and shipped at a minimum  of cost. Thus far, at least, it seems to  have lived up to its name. It adjoins  che King Solomon, owned by D. C.  Corbin and associates of Spokane.  Some four years ago about 800 tons of  ore were sent out from the King Solomon.  Robert Keffer, editor and proprietor  of the Anaconda News, which has recently been enlarged to eight pages,  was a caller in the city yesterday.  Archie Aberdeen, the veteran prospector, who owns up to some 77 summers and as many winters, started out  Wednesday for the Similkameen, where  he will do some assessments on claims  near Hedley camp.

Hichard McBride,   for  ihe year  ending December 31st, 1905, has just  been    issued    from     the   government  pruning office, Victoria.      The report,  which is  a  most concise digest on the  operations in gold and other prcciou  ineUls, copper, lead and   coal, reflects  credit   on the pro\ incial mineralogist,  William Fleet Robertson.      This   official has evidently  been at pains to ol>-  i.tiu   an   accurate,    conservative   and  thorough   summary   of  work    in   the  large mining camps  and   coal-fields of  the province.     The   statements   made  in ihe report are based  upon facts and  liguces which there   is   no   gainsaying,  wlii'e in the field of theory and anticipation the provincial  mineralogist  has  evinced a very clear insight  into   the  future, his opinions   finding the endor-  sation of others whose business it is to  make a thorough study of  the inhier-  alo^ical possibilities of British  Columbia.

" I took Peruna for two weeks, when I was much  better, and in two weeks more I was entirely rid ol  the cold and catarrh. I shall take it every spring as  a tonic, as I found that it made me much better In  every way."���Tilly Marx.

Almost every ono has como to believe  that spring Is a season that brings derangements of tho body dependent on  blood impurities.  This belief Is an old one, is nearly universal, and has arisen, not as the result  of the teachings of tho medical fraternity, but has been learned in the bitter  school of experience.  Nervous Depression.  Depression of the nervous system at  the approach of spring is a fertilo sourco  of blood impurities.  There are general lassitude,dull, heavy  sensations, continual tired feelings, with  irregular appetite, and sometimes loss  of sleep.  That Tired Feeling.  That tired feeling, which Is the natural result of the depressing effect of  -warm weather immediately after the  Invigorating oold of winter, quickly  disappears when Peruna is taken.  The Proper Remedy.  Peruna meets every Indication and  proves itself to be perfectly adapted to  all their varied peculiarities. Peruna  invigorates the Bystem, rejuvenates the  feelings, restores the normal appetite  and procures regular sleep.  Do Not Delay.  Get a bottle of Peruna when the first  languid feelings make themselves apparent in the spring. Take it according  to the directions on the bottle. Continue this treatment through the first  months of spring.  This course of treatment is no experiment; it is as positive in its results as  any fact of science can be.  A Spring Tonic.  Almost everybody needs a tonic in the  spring. Something to brace the nerves,  invigorate the brain, and cleanse the  blood. That Peruna will do this is beyond all question. Everyone who has  tried it has had the same experience as  Mrs. Winnifred Power, an artist, who,  in a recent letter from I246 7th St., Portland, Ore., says:  "1am pleased to speak a good word  for Peruna, as I found It an excellent  tonic and spring medicine and very effective In ridding tbe system of cold  and catarrh.  "About two years ago my system was  all run down in the spring and I thought  I would try and see if Peruna would be  of any assistance in bringing back my  health and strength.  "I found that it was splendid and all  the medicine that I needed. In a little  over a month I was well and did not  need to take any more medicine.  "I shall recommend it to every ono in  need of a tonic, and know that I have  only to take a few doses of Poruna when  I take a cold and I will soon be over it."  ���Winnifred Power.  Nature's Assistance.  Spring is the best time to treat catarrh. Nature renews herself every  spring.   The system is rejuvenated by'  spring  weather.    This   renders   medicines more effective.  A short course of Peruna, assisted by  the balmy air of spring, will cure old,  stubborn cases of catarrh that have resisted treatment for years.  A Word ol Advice.  To those wiio have been afflicted with  chro-.ic catarrh we wish to say that the  sZ-'.i'K season affords you a splendid opportunity to get rid of your disease.  It may be you have been afflicted for  several years; you may have tried different remedies. Perhaps you have become discouraged.  Now Is Your Opportunity.  This failure was during the winter  months. But now is your opportunity.  Nature comes to your assistance at this  season.  Just help her a little aud she will  bring you out of the quagmire in which  you have been floundering so long. Give  Nature a little assistance lest her strug  gles be in vain.  A Typical Case.  Geo. M. "Fillmore, late 1st Lieut. 8rd  U. S. Artillery, writes from 909 h St., N.  *W., Washington, D. C, as follows:  "I brought forward from winter into  spring a sickening case of catarrh which  was making existence miserable for me,  until I was induced to try a bottle of  Peruna.  "An immediate improvement gave mo  hope, if not relief. I kept up taking Poruna and it has so strengthened and relieved me that I am now confident of a  cure. I heartily endorse Peruna for ca- ]  tarrhal affections and as a tonic for their  weakening effects."���Geo. M. Fillmore.  A short course of Peruna now will  be just In time. During the month of  April youwill find the strategic time to  rid yourself of chronic catarrh, one of  the most persistent, stubborn diseases  in the whole list of human ailments.  After you have tried it you will say  Peruna is positively the best spring  medicine you have ever used.  A great many years of extensive trials  of this remedy In this olass of derangements have demonstrated that there  are no failures.  Thousands ot Testimonials.  Thousands of cases might be quoted  in which Peruna has rescued people  from the ravages of spring catarrh, and  put them on a good, solid foundation of  health.  We can give our readers only a alight  glimpse of the vast array of unsolicited  endorsements Dr. Hartman is constantly receiving. No other physician  in the world has received such a volume  of enthusiastic letters of thanks.  If you do not derive prompt and satisfactory results from the use of Peruna,  write at onoe to Dr. Hartman, giving a  full statement of your case and he will  be pleased to give you his valuable advice gratia.

The  report   states   that   the  gross  va'ue of the mineral  production of the  province during   the   year   1905   was  $"������*>461,325,  the   largest  output ever  made by the mines of the province, and  an increase over the preceding year of  $3,483,966, or 18.4 per cent, while it  is an increase over the   year   1903   of  over 28 per cent.     ,An analysis of the  returns show,  however,   that   this   increase   has   been   confined to certain  districts,   Southeast     Kootenay,     the  Boundary district, Nelson mining division and Yale mining division, the remaining districts showing  a   more or  less marked   decrease.      The greater  part of the increase is in the two former of these   districts.    In   Southeast  Kootenay the tonnage of ore mined in  creased 121 per cent and the value of  the product 135 per cent over the preceding year,   while  in   the   Boundary  the tonnage has  increased 20 per cent  and the value of the output   53.6 per  cent.  The following table shows the number of metalliferous mines which ship-  p*-d ore during the past year, together  with the location of these mines and  the number of men employed both  above and below ground :  Tom of Ore  Shipped  Cassiar:  Skeena    Fast Kootenay :  Fort Steele    '7��.��73  Windermere.. .. 226  West Kootenay :  Ainsworth         3,831  Nelson       50,090  Slocan       88,279  Trail     330,618  Other Divisions.      22,302  Lillooet  133  Yale :  Boundary     965,628  Ashcroft - Kamloops        14,642  Similkameen-Vernon  88 14  Coast       61,126 202  43  Men  Km ployed  ��9  3'7  44  106  392  457  833  i'5  4  ,016  77  3,596  Total 1,706,679  Boundary Increase, 56 Per Cent.  In the Boundary district the tonnage of ore mined has increased about  26 per cent over the preceding year,  and now amounts to 965,628 tons, being over 56 per cent of the total tonnage of the province.  This increase is due to the constantly increasing operations of the  Granby company, the other large companies about holding their own. The  number of smaller high grade properties being operated, while not contributing any appreciable percentage to  the tonnage, have helped to keep up  the average grade of the ores.  The costs of mining and smelting  have been gradually reduced in this  section, thanks to as fine equipments  as money could buy, in the hands of  intelligent and  scientific  men,   until  they are now reported to be auout  the lowest in the world. To quote  from a recent editorial in the leading  American scientific journal:  "Ten years ago the idea of smelting  for a dollar a ton and mining for$1.to  a ton would have been scouted as impossible. Yet this has been done at  the Granby mines, with an exceptionally favorable ore and exceptionally  well applied skill. In Tennessee, with  low priced labor and fuel, they smelt a  copper bearing pyrrhotite for $1.30  per ton."  The tonnage of ore mined in the  whole province, exclusive of coal, was  1,706,679 tons, some 245,070 tons, or  16 per cent, greater than in 1904; and  85 per cent greater than was mined in  1901. The output of mineral products  in British Columbia, as compared with  that of similar products in all other  provinces of the Dominion, shows that  in 1905 British Columbia produced in  metals and coal an amount nearly as  great as did all the other Canadian  provinces combined.
