I The Mother Lode and Oro Denoro  mines ofthe British Columbia Copper  company are now shipping ore regular-  ly'to the company's smelter at Greenwood. The Oro Denoro. shipped its  first ore on Saturday, and to date has  g��  shipped 480 tons.    The ore was ship-  )��� ped from the new C. P. R. spur, which  was built last fall and runs into the  lower bins. Formerly C P.R. cars  were spotted on. Great Northern.track  at the upper bins. About sixty miners  are now at work at this mine.... and the  force will be steadily increased to upwards of 100.  I The Mother Lode commenced shipping on Monday and cars have since  been carrying its ore to the smelter at  the rate of 500 tons daily. Although  the force at the Mother Lode is gradually increasing they have as yet but  half the required number of 300 men.  I Muckers are plentiful, but experienced  miners are wanted. The new crusher  is now working successfully, and more  cars are being built for underground  work. At present two small locomotives and 4oton steel cars convey the  ore to the smelter. These will be re-  a*  placed later by a large engine and 50-  Iton cars.  The company's smelter at Greenwood will not start until the ore bins,  which have a capacity of, 12,500 tons,  are filled, and this will be about the  end of next week. There are over  4,000 tons of coke on hand, so there  I will be no delay for lack of fuel. Thirty  men are employed getting the smelter  in shape for blowing in the furnaces.  The new crushing and conveying plant  is being installed, the ore bins made  stronger, and a new roof added to the  , converter building. The smelter when  running at full capacity will treat about  ��60,000 tons of ore, and produce 600 to  ���700   tons  of:.. copper par���-month, - and  A employ 200 men.  Engineers iri connection with the  Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel are ex  pected to arrive on Monday.  The third, bunker at the Brooklyn  mine collapsed; last Saturday and fell  into the cave-;k below. The other two  bins fell "at the'tinie ofthe cave-in last  August, and the'third, which was badl>  undermined had been expected to fall  for some time.  An immense cave-in took place at  the glory hole, on Granby hill about a  week ago. Thousands of tons of ruck,  largely waste, were precipitated 10 the  bottom of the,pit, filling several chutes  down to the 300-fooi level, luckily.  no miners were-in llw .vicinity-at the  time and no person was hurt.  The manager of the Berthi Mining  company, FredfH. Knight, is now  looking over the property at Bannock  city, and it is said his visit is in connection with further development work  to be undertaken at once. Assays  all'the way from from $50 to $500 per  ton in gold are of common occurrence  at the Bertha mine.  .: Rumors of the, resuming of the Do  minion Copper company were very  persistent in camp during the past  few days, but-on enquiry Manager  Thomas stated no instructions to that  effect had yet been received. Thore  in charge of "the Brooklyn mine, in  Phoenix camp, however, were asked to  make a report of supplies required for  the resumption of operations, and'it is  generally expected that the Dominion  Copper properties will be operating  early next month.

The company does not even patronize  the local bank, which is a regular chartered institution   with   many branches  scattered   throughout   the  Dominion.  They  employ in . the depot but  one  man, the agent,   much of whose  time  is necessarily devoted to the soliciting  of competitive freight  and   passenger  business, and while he is employed in  this manner patrons  of the  company  are compelled to  wait this-company^  convenience, "very *often   to   the pat-  jron's inconvenience.    Still   this company solicits and expects as much patronage as the C.P.R., a company which  with all its  faults  employs  a suitable  staff, lights its depot, which is neat and  sightly,   with  electricity,   provides its  agent with suitable office furniture, including a safe, and does its local banking with the Eastern Townships Bank.J  Citizens cannot   but note the difference in   service given by  these rival  companies and route their business accordingly.  We understand that the Great Northern have repeatedly turned down  the proposition of lighting with  electricity on account of the cost  being higher than in some of  the towns in Kootenay, and here we  ask'thatJ-company,' why they should  not pay a higher price for , lighting  here? This company exacts a higher  freight rate on through Eastern and  Pacific Coast freight to Phoenix than  'they do to Nelson, 'although the mileage to Nelson is greater than to Phoenix by their route, the difference in  the rate being 38 cents per hundred  pounds on first clas": freight.

They also met with other  encouragement and they are preparing  to finance the proposition by the organization of a tunnel company.    The big  copper producers at Phoenix are noncommittal, but the people at Greenwood say that  if the  tunnel  is only  driven a third of the distance it will be  of vast benefit to the mining industry.  Several years ago a tunnel from near  Grand Forks, a distance of  six miles,  was proposed, but it was not seriously  considered and the plan'was dropped.  Soon    afterward   the   Granby   Company planned to run a bore two miles  in   length   from    Deadman's   Gulch,  almost due north of Phoenix, which  would  reach the Granby mines at a  depth of 1,500 feet.    No'official state  ment was ever given out about the matter, however, and nothing came of it,  A   year   ago   there  was  talk  of the  same company running a tunnel from  Fourth of July Creek to reach its ore  bodies  in this camp  at great depth.  These plans,  however, have evidently all been shelved; hundreds, of .thousands of dollars have been spent by the  Granby Company in equipment and  appliances to take its ore out in Phoenix, the two railways having also spent  large amounts in increased   trackage  facilities for the mines.

The.following is the proceedings,- in  part, of the Mining . Institute taken  from the Miner:  The western branch of the Canadian  Mining Institute met in this city tin  Thursdav and held a. forenoon and  afternoon session, at which .interesting  papers were read and the regular business of the body transacted. On Wednesday- evening the visiting members  were entertained at a smoker in the'  Rossland club. Friday was spent by  the visitors hi inspecting the mines.  Including the local members and visitors, thirty members of the institute  were-in attendance at the meeting.  On Thursday morning, at 11 o'clock,  the meeting was called to order by A.  B. W. Hodges, president of the branch,  who said he thought the room would  be filled with members and visitors on  the occasion of a meeting of this character. The influence wielded by the  society, however, could not be measured by the attendance., . He spoiteof  the-great influence of the mining industry, and how far-reaching the influence, of such an organization as the  Canadian Institute was. The papers  and their discussion would be published far and wide and would be read  in many places, and these germs of  knowledge would be added to the  world's store of wisdom, and would  exert much influence. (Cheers and  applause).  J. A. Macdonald, M.P.P., on the invitation of the chairman, made a short  address in which he told how pleastd  the people of Rossland were to have so  important a body meet here. The  speaker said he considered that Rossland is the banner gold-copper camp,  although some of those present might  not agree with this. He said he had  still the faith that he always had had  that here we had a permanent and valuable deposit of mineral. He spoke of  the usefulness of the institute, and of  the fact that there was no rivalry nor  competition between the mines and  mining engineers, as everyone in the  profession is glad to see the others  prosper, and this spirit of unselfishness  had been carried into the organization.  (Applause.)  A. J. McMillan made a short speech  in which he said he was glad to see the  Mining Institute meet in Rossland.  We have large deposits of ere here, he  said, and have confidence in the future.  There have been difficulties and they  have been overcome, and in the futuie,  if they come again, they would be surmounted.    (Applause.)  Mr. Hodges stated that the Can]  adian Mining Institute would visit the  west in September. Accompanying  them as guests there would be eminent  mining and metallurgical experts from  Great Britain and the continent. They  will stop at Crow's Nest points, Nelson,  Kossland, and in the Boundary. The  intention of the members of the western  branch was not only to entertain them  but to accompany them as far as Victoria, where the institute will hold a  meeting. The western < branch''would  probably also hold a meeting  A debate ensued as to whether :he  province could not be induced to grant  a sum for the purpose of entettainin|>  the foreign .and continental visitors,1  and also whether a permanent annual-,  grant could not be obtained from the'  provincial'government. The Dominion  yiyes $3,000 a year to it, and has promised $5,000, and Ontario $1,500,-and  tt is thought that B C. should also be  generous in this regard. It was thought  by J. A. Macdonald that if a grant was  asked the government it would: be  (���ranted.  E. Jacobs, the secretary, read replies  from Hon. Templeman, R, XV. Brock,  of the Geological survey, to letters ;as  to geological work in the west, and  they stated that the work would be  continued.  Oil reassembling at 2.30, E. Jacobs,  secretary, read a paper from notes  given him hy W...J. Watson,: of the  Tyee smelter at Ladyssnith, on.'��� a  "Malte Separating Foreheath,", which  had been used to advantage in the  plant for two years. Among other advantages it affords a reduced wear and  tear of matte pits, the stream of matte  not striking the side of the pot, as nn  the ordinary method, the saving of tapping clay, the elimination of danger-to  men being burned when tapping and  dispensing with a tapper, and the saving afforded in not having to pay the  wages of an extra man.  Paul E. Couldrey moved that the  council be increased-to twelve, including the president and secretary, in order  to augment the effectiveness,���Carried.  On a motion of R; H. Stewart, seconded by F. W. Guernsey, R.W. Coul-  ihard; oi Fernie; Robert Hamilton, of  Vancouver; and John L. Retallack,. of  Kaslo, were added to the council.  The council recommended that a  committee consisting of A. B. W.  Hodges, W. H. Aldridge and S.S.  Fowler be appointed to request the  government to make a grant for the  purpose of entertaining the foreign  visitors who will come west with the  Canadian Mining Institute in September. Tho recommendation was adopted  on. the motion of A. J. McMillan, seconded by M. E. PurceuV  ��� A resolution was adopted that a  committee of five be appointed to make  suggestions to the council as to the itinerary of the western trip of the ;institute next fall, on the motion of S. S.  Fowler, seconded by J. XV. Col lis.  H. H. Claudet read an interesting  paper on the Elmore Vacuum Oil Process, in which he told of the latest amplification of the process which was  that iron and ^inc in an ore could be  separated. At the Giant mine, near  Golden, 14 per cent lead ore was concentrated to 69 per cent concentrates,  leaving only at per cent of lead in the  tailings with the process. In Norway  there were oil plants in which the cost  ���>f concentration was only 60 and 75  <"ents per: ton, exclusive of crushing.  Specimens of the concentrates made by  the process were shown. Dr. Porter,  M. E; Burcell.S.'S; Fowler and others  debated on the merits and qualities of  the process, and seemed to regard it as  an excellent method of concentration  C. M. Campbell, of the Granl.y  mines, at Phoenix, read avery complete paper ; on ;"Granby Mining  Methods," in, which he showed how-  mining is carried on in mines which in  a few years have produced over 5,000,-  600 tons of ore. At one place in the  mine the ledge* measured horizontally  and not'directly = across the dip, was  700 feet in width...'.,Mr, Campbell told  how the large', deposits were opened,  the method of sloping, haulage and of  the many labor-saving devices used in  the mine. Owing,to the low grade of  the. ore and the -large quantity necessary to be ! handled, every possible  economical corner .had to be cut in  order to reduce expenses. A number  of drawings and photographs, illustrat  ing the text of the .paper, were shown  and admired by those present. It was  the best and most comprehensive paper  read at the meeting, and was debated  at length by Dr. Porter, Paul E. Couldrey and others.  Ei Jacobs read a< paper from notes  given to Mr.' Miller'of the Tyee smelter,  at Ladysmith, on an ingenious apparatus contrived by Mr. Miller for un  loading ore from vessels, which excited  considerable interest.  Dr. Porter. gave an interesting ac  count of tests which were being conducted by the Dominion government in  conjunction with McGill university, of  the coals of Canada. The tests of the  coals of Nova Scotia and New Bruns  wick were completed and work was  now in progress on the coals of the west.  The work was about half done and  the end of the big task is about in  sight. : He was not in position to give  details as they most first be furnished  to the government.  A vote of thanks was tendered the  local members' for the arrangements  made for'the comfort and entertainment of the visitors, to the press, and  to the government for the use of the  courtroom.

The local  baseball   tossers  look  a  a jaunt down   to  Greenwood   on the  seventeenth and got away with the big  end of a score of 10-7  in a performance on the diamond of the boys in  green.    The bleachers were fairly well  lined, and an up-to date comedy show  was presented to celebrate the opening  of the ball season in the Boundary  "Happy"  of the   Phoenix   nine   did  credit to the role of leading comedian.  With a national reputation in the big  eastern leagues as an all-round master  mechanic  with  the big glove, Happy  started in to catch for the Phoenicians  but after presenting the opponents with  a couple of runs, was switched to the  first sack,  Ferkins going behind the  bat.   Here Happy's brilliancy was even  more humorous; he performed the feat  of walking all over the  base without  touching it; had he accidentally got his  foot on it he would have completed a  double play.    Greenwood got away to  a good start, scoring six runs to the  visitors' two, but they  failed  to keep  the pace.    The real fireworks opened  in the fifth inning; Phoenix swatted the  ball all over the garden, and when the  smoke  cleared  away   had added five  runs to their score, picking off another  trio in the seventh.    McKelvey, who  did the twirling for  Phoenix gave evidence of  becoming a   regular lemon  beaut,   while Perkins, as catcher, was  always there with the goods.

Baatf To Be Reorcanlxed  A movement is launched to reor  ganize a city band, and we understand  it is meeting with general approval  throughout the city, and it is to be  hoped such support will be given as  will make the band an unqualified  success. A number of the boys met  at the band room, City Hall, on Wednesday evening, and made a very good  showing, but the meeting was more of  an impromptu affair than anything else,  as little time was given to hunting up  the players. They will meet again on  Monday evening, May 25th, for practice, and we hope all interested in the  movement will require no further invitation than this announcement to be  on hand.  The members of the band being  nearly all miners, it is somewhat difficult to have all present at every  practice, but a number have declared  that if permitted by the mine official*.  they will, work four weeks on "grave  yard" shift, instead of two, jn order to  be present. This we believe might be  satisfactorily arranged with the mining  officials. " \ '  Since such an interest is being  shown by.manyrriiners, some of them  heading the movement, and one ol  them competent to take charge of the  band, it is suggested that the name of  the band be the "Phoenix Miners'  Band." Nothing could much better  reflect credit on the camp than a good  band, and we feel assured it will be  welcomed by the citizens in general.  Players and interest are not lacking.  The city is willing to place the instruments which it has, in the care of this  organization, and with a little support  from the people, the band will be a  band in fact, and one which Phoenix  will have no cause to be ashamed of.  Officers, etc./ will be elected next  Monday evening.  WHO SAYS SO? Hundreds of  customers. II you don't dt.iicve  and examine goods.

A somewhat serious break  occurred  in ihe Marshall lake dam on Fndav of  last week and sent a torrent of water  down    Providence   creek    for    some  hours.    The   first   intiinatiuii   uf the  lireak came from Greenwood, and a  force of 20 men were soon at work repairing the- break, the   lake  having in  ihe meantime lowered about four feet.  Although the city has a   franchise  for  water supply from   Marshall  lake, the  greater part of the city's supply is now  obtained  fiom 'streams on  the other  side ol ihe  hijl, so that  the outburst  had no material effect.' Tbe water has  risen over 12 inches this week.  The bachelors' ball to take place in  Miners' Union hall next  Friday evening promises to eclipse in every way  any former event of this kind given in  the city for  some time.

Lunch will be served  in the  banquet room adjoining the hall by the  benedicts of the city, and the entire  proceeds of the evening  will  be donated to Phoenix hospital.    The following is the personnel of orchestra.���M.  Lewis,  A. Logan, 1st violin; J.   Jory,  J. McAllister, G. L. Smith, 2nd violin;  E. G. Warren, fluw; A. J. Logan; clar  ontt ;   A. T.
