LOCAL JQTTINGS  BIT THE CASCADE POWER IS Mil  a Few D��y�� All of ihe Electrical Energ)  Needed Will Be Available-Water Turned  on Yesterday.  S Huoter-Kendrick Co.!  As was anticipated, a third furna'ct  was placed in operation at the Granby  smeller last Monday, and ore ship-  mems.fiom the company's mines in  this camp were at once increased lo  1,100 tons per day. Hut unfortunately  it did not last long, the same old trouble���lack of sufficient power���beinp  responsible for the thi.id furnace beii)(j  blown out again after a three days'  run..  Since the extreme of low water in  North Fork of Kettle river, the smthei  lake has risen i 6 inches.'.-. But it required a trial .to ascertain whether this  would generate sufficient power to operate three blast furnaces and the two  converters at one and the same time.  It has now been ascertained; that it  will not.  But, nevertheless, the day of deliverance is almost at hand: Slowly but  surely the immense power works at  Cascade are nearing completion���in  fact, it may be said that the finishing  touches to the great -plant..'are .'being  put on. Yesterday water was to be  turned into the flume, and the turbines  in the main power station tested, the  electrical machinery being already in  place and ready for use. The stringing of wire on the three-mile branch  l>ole line to tbe smelter is finished, and  ihe brick sub-station at..the smelter is  also done.  At Cascade a current of 2,000 volts  is generated, but for long distance  transmission the current is stepped up  to 20,000 volts. The smelter uses  a current of 440 volts, and transformers to step it down to this voltage have  been ordered from the east, and will  be ready fcr use in December.  To obviate this delay the Cascade  concern will allow the use of part of  the nine transformers already installed  in the Phoenix sub-station for this end  of the line. C. E. Lane, chief electrician at the Granby smelter, came up  to Phoenix Thursday/and thinks that  1  j  Wm, Yolen Williams returned Monday fiom a shoit trip to Nelson.

Extended by Miners, Mason*  and Business Men.  ON HIS DEPARTURE FROM PHOENIX  Presented Wllh Purae ol Gold, a Chain and  Locket, and Banquet Was Given In His  Honor   -.'���''  IT'S NOW UP  TO J; J, HILL  To Complete His Branch Line  ; to Phoenix!  FAVORABLE ACTION TAKEN AT OTTAWA  Hallway Committee Granted ; Application to  Cross Tracks of Older Lines Near Grand  Forks, And Complete Ihe Branches.  he can have the step-down transformers transferred and the necessary connections made in the course of tht  next ten days. After that the Granby  Co. will not be dependent upon the  whims of the North Fork, and can op  erate its entire plant at both mines and  smelter, thereby affording employment  to nearly 700 men.  Nothing New Politically.  The -Victoria Times says':  "There is nothing new in the political situation except a well authenticated rumor that Mr. Dunsmuir will retain  office for some weeks, and that it is  unlikely there will be any change in  the cabinet until Mr. Wells' return from  Ottawa." The'limesadds: "Considering what may transpire when Mi.  Dunsmuir resigns, it is probably just  as well that he should retain office foi  some time to come."  QO-<X><>-0-O<K><>-0-CM  ORO DENORO DEAL.  Work Likely to be Re=  sumed Soon.  Arrangements aire being made,  to resume development work on(  the Oro Denoro mine, in Summit camp, which is owned by the]  King Mining Company, and has.  been idle for nearly three years.  An important ledge on this prop-.  erty was cut by the railway grad-.  ers when the Phoenix branch of.  the C. P. R. was built, and many,  mining men have thought most,  favorably of the Oro Denoro.  Details of the deal are not yet (  ready for "publication, but it is.  anticipated that it will be closed t  very shortly.  Last.Tuesday the railway committee  at Ottawa heaid tbe application of the  V., V.&E. railway; or James J, Hill  line, to build its -branches to the Granby smeller and to Phoenix, and also to  cross the tracks of the C. P. R, and  Ite'tle Valley lines near Grand Forks.  The.matter has been hanging fire for  months, and while favorable action at  Ottawa was expected, its announcement  was a source of much satisfaction to  residents of the Boundary generally.  Messrs. McCallum and Cumings, of  Grand Forks, had gone to Oitawa to  be present at the hearing, and the news  of its successful outcome was conveyed  in a telegram to parties in the Smelter  C'ty-  It has been the popular opinion that  Mr. Hill would go right on and build  to Phoenix and Greenwood as soon as  the obstacles thrown in his way were  removed. The surveys have been completed lor a year or more, and in fact,  are finished as far west, as Princeton  in the Similkameen, *ind the plans have  been filed at Ottawa.  At one time the contract for the  Phoenix branch was reported as having  been let to Stewart & Welch, and it is  probable that that firm will eventually  build the line. As there are 15 or 20  miles of rock work within a few miles  of Phoenix, as soon as it commences it  means a largely increased payroll at our  doors for the next year to come.  Tuesday night, when the news was  received in Grand Forks and Columbia,  there was-several' kinds of jubilation,  and bon fires were lighted. It is probable that something will be known  shortly when the actual construction is  likely to begin.  Work Resumed at Morrlsey,  The following dispatch regarding  the controversy at the Morrisey coal  mines was sent out from Fernie last  Tuesday:  "All difficulties at Morrisey are settled. The men have resumed work on  the scale offered by the company in the  gangways. Work in the rooms remains  the same as heretofore. Everything  is very satisfactory."  A recent shipment of Tom Thumb  (Republic) ore to the Granby smelter  netted $16 per ton.  Judge Leamy has declared the Grand  Forks Chinese wash house by-law invalid.  This is a victory lor the Chinks.  Bishop Dontenville blessed the bell  of the Catholic church in Greenwood  last Sunday, previous to coming up to  Phoenix for a similar purpose, I  When the history of Phoenix is writ  ten, in the yeais to come, this past  week may most appropriately be referred to as Hemenway week. Not  because Mr; Hemenway discovered  any of our great mines, or organized  syndicates to develop them, or buiii  smelteis, or did any of, the things that  brings renown in the eyes'of the world.  But the series of events referred to  here, occurring this week, were a sincere tribute to a man who has taken  an active and unselfish interest in public affairs in Phoenix for a period ol  over five years.  '; Last Sunday morning a delegation  of 25 mineis from . the Granby mines  surprised Mr. Hemenway and his wife  at their residence on Old Ironsides  avenue, and with Shift, Boss Miller as  spokesman, presented them with an  illuminated address and a purse of  of gold, as an evidence of the esteem  in which Mr. Hemenway was held by  those employed in the Boundary's biggest mine. Mr. Hemenway responded briefly and feelingly as befitted the  occasion.  At Tuesday evening's meeiing ol  King Fidward Lodge, A. F. & A. M.,  Mr. Hemenway was again agreeably  suprised by a presentation from the  members of the lodge.it taking the  form of a solid gold locket and chain',  suitably engraved and with the insignia  of the ordei. Refreshments were also  served and a social time enjoyed. Mr.  Hemenway was a charter member of  King Edward Lodge, and holds a high  office, having been an active Mason  for years.  Wednesday's Banquet and Smoker.  Wednesday evening a  banquet  and  smoking concert was tendered to   Mr.  Hemenway  at   Hardy-McKenzi'e hall  by the citizens and residents of  Phoenix.    Covers were laid by W. S. Macy,  of the Granby  Hotel,   for  sixty,   and  every   place   was  occupied.     Mayor  Rumberger was chairman of the  evening, and in a few well chosen  words  called upon R. B.   Kerr  to  introduce  the guest of the  occasion.     This was  done with a good deal of feeling on Mr.  Ken's part, Mr. Hemenway  responding when he had finished.    Then   followed several other toasts and speeches  by those  present,   when   the  musical,  part of the entertainment was  started.  This continued,with songs and speeches  by a number of those present until an  early hour, when the assemblage broke  up with the best of good wishes for the  departing guest. The occasion was one  Jong to be remembered by those present.  John Frank Hemenway fust came  to Phoenix July 16, 1897, and for over  eight months had entire charge of the  Old Ironsides mine. The development then consisted of a 56 foot shaft.  Since then over three miles of development, not counting the enormous  stopes, have been done in the Granby  mines. He has personally been on  ground and watched the properties  grow from what local miners considered wildcats to what world famous experts consider are the greatest mines  on the continent.  On account of his wife's health he  was forced to make a change, and he  has accepted a position as financial  agent of a strong New York syndicate  developing rich copper properties near  Prescott, Arizona. From Phoenix,  British Columbia, to Phoenix, Arizona, or near there, is a far cry, but Mr.  and Mrs. Hemenway will take the bes.  wishes of a host of Boundary friends  They leave on Monday for Vancouver,  Seattle and Portland, thence to Prescott.  A 1 ich shoot of iron 01 e was struck  in the glory hole of the Mother Lode  this week, which is just the kind o! ore  desired for fluxing with the average oie  of the mine.  By the first of December the second  half of the 60 drill, compressor being  installed] by the Granby Co. here, will  be shipped by the makers from Sher-  brooke, Quebec.  In the process of installing the large  ore crusher for the ' Granby C>.j  the j  heavy; parts have this week been placed on the  bed  in  the new building  erected for this purpose.  Two cars of rich ore arc being loaded from the Providence mine, the ore  coming from the Co-foot level. It will  s-o to the Trail smelter, and like other  shipments from this mine, high returns  are anticipated.  The Greeinyood , smelter is getting  but little outside ore nowadays,' most  of the ore being treated coming from  the company's Mother Lode mine. The  Snowshoe ships a coup'le of cats dailj  to this smelter.  LEAVES FOR  LONDON  To Attend the Snowshoe Annual Meeting.  ANTHONY J. M'MILiAN HAS STARTED  Meetlnc Will Held In Dcccmber-Dlrrclora Are  .Pleased  With  Mine's  Progress During  Ihe Last Vear.

WILL ARRIVE HERE IN A FEW DAYS  Foundations are Completed���Hoist Is of 150  Horse Power Capacity With Two-Ton  Skips���Main Shaft Is Being Deepened.  The new hoist for the Snowshoe will  be one of the largest of its kind yet in  stalled in the Boundary. It has a capacity of 150 horse power, with double  drum, and is fitted with two skips with  a capacity of two tons of ore each. The  hoist will be shipped in a few days from  Rossland, where it has been in use for  a short time in one of the large properties in that camp. The Hoist will be  driven by electricity, the power coming  from Cascade. Concrete foundations  for the hoist were completed this week,  and the gallows frame is now being  erected over the main shaft.  Work has been resumed on the main  shaft of the Snowshoe, now down some  300 feet, and the shaft will be continued for the present to the 400 foot level.  'This week the Snowshoe made the  record shipment of ore in it-history,  sending out 1,230 tons. Every day  four cars went to the Boundary Falls  smelter and two cars to the Greenwood  'smelter���all that either of the smelters  will'take at the present time. The  management of the Snowshoe would  like to ship more ore, and are in a position to do so, but have no place to  ship to. The ore is all of a good grade,  and is being taken from the surlace  workings or glory holes.  The 1,800 foot spur for the Snow-  shoe, which runs just below the tunnel  dump, was completed this week, with  the exception of the small trestle at the  end of the spur. On this spur ore bins  with a capacity of 3,000 tons will be  built at once, the lumber having been  ordered for some time.  '.; Anthony J. McMillan, managing director of the Snowshoe Gold and Copper Mines, Ltd,, after spending sev-  eral'days at the Snowshoe mine in'this  camp, left last Saturday for Rossland  and New York, from which latter he  expects to sail on the 8th inst. on a  Cunard liner foi London, England.  While he is absent ac/oss the pond  Mr. McMillan will attend the annual  general' meeting of the Snowshoe shareholders and give an account of the  progress made at this impoitant piop-  erty in the twelve months past. As two  others of the direnoiate���Mr. Water-  low and Dr. Jones���have visited the  Snowshoe this last summer, and expressed themselves as not a little  pleased at the present condition of the  property; the shareholders will doubtless have a similar opinion when they  hear Mr. McMillan's repoit.  Before leaving for his wintei trip to  theold countiy Mi. McMillan   took a  rundown to the coast, and while there  took occasion to see  the cabinet ministers, with a  view  to securing more  favorable legislation   for   the   mining  districts,  particularly  as   reg.trds   the  taxing of the output.   He   thinks the  ministers themselves are   favorably inclined   to  this  view, and  has  strong  hopes,that something can and will be;  done in the near future.    At the same,-  time it is'certain that   the government  members from   the  tniming  districts  have an idea that the mining companies bpe.ating in the  upper country are.  all  rich anyway, and  are  capable of'  paying heavy taxes.    These  membeis.  must be brought to see the matter in a-  fair and equitable light,  One matter of unusual importance  that will come up for consideration at  the Snowshoe meeting in London is  that of reduction works for ti eating  ore from the Snowshoe. Several smelter and smelter site pioposiuons, as  well as other methods of treatment for  which much is claimed, will be considered. As the Snowshoe is now developed to a point where it can maintain shipments at the rate of 600 tons  daily, and is also thoroughly equipped  with machinery, the nutter ol reduction of the ore becomes of prime importance.  Council Cannot See It.  Last Saturday a meeting of the city  fathers was held, and the resignation  of Alderman Webster Rogers was read  and accepted. A number of bills,  largely for sidewalk building and labor,  were ordered paid, and tbe board of  works was ordered to look into the matter of raising the First street bridge.  Mayor Rutnberger's letter from the  city of Greenwood, asking that city to  issue $25,000 in debentures, to assist  in building the Greenwood-Phoenix  tramway, was read, and the matter discussed. The decision was not to do  anything with the matter at the present time.  G. W. Wooster, treasurer of the  Granby Co., spent a couple of days in  the city this week, checking out J. F.  Hemenway, and checking in his successor, J. L. Martin, in the Granby  mines' office.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

Next to the story of the dividends,  nothing sounds so good to those interested in low grade camps as the story  of the tons���especially where the tonnage is steadily increasing. For it is  only a matter of time until, the story  of the tons becomes practically the tale  of the dividends.  Now, in regard to the Boundary,  while there have been many drawbacks  for shipping mines this year, there has  been a distinct advance over last year  in the amount of ore shipped from our  properties���an advance that will prob  ably show a 25 per cent increase by  the end of the calendar year. To go  more into details, the Boundary has  already mined and shipped as much  ' ore in ten months of 1902 as it did in  twelve months in 1901���that is, close  to 400,000 tons in each case.  Just now Boundary mines are making an average production of 2,000  tons ol.ore daily.. As the Granby Co.  will soon have its fourth furnace in  blast, this will make an average output  for all Boundary mines of 2,500 tons  of ore daily, or at the pleasing rate'of  75,000 tons per month. All of which  means that the ore shipments for the  ��� full year of 1902 will not fall much  short of 550,000 tons���or about 40  per cent more than in 1901.  Cuming to individual mines, we find  that sp far this year the Granby mines  have shipped exceeding 250,000 tons,  the Mother Lode over 100,000, and  the Snowshoe over io,oco tons���all of  of which,are in excess of the entire  year' of 1901. The other shipping  properties are-also making good showings, such as the Sunset, Emma and  B.- C^mine.  It is plain, therefore, that notwithstanding all the unforeseen contingencies that have prevailed this last summer substantial progress has been  made in ��� the Boundary district in the  mining industry. The entire country  is on a better business basis, and from  now on should advance steadily.  If one could take a glance into the  future���trie near future���what would  he see here? By next spring he would  note that, instead of seven furnaces in  existence here, treating some 2,500  tons of ore daily, he could find twelve of  them, treating over 4,000 tons per day;  for it is a well known fact that each ol  the three smelters is preparing to increase the capacity, some of the orders  for additional plant having already  been placed.  Good times are in  store for the  Boundary, and, barring unforeseen con  tingehcies, they will shortly begin to  put in their appearance.  Among the plants lecently put in  or now projected are following: $60,-  000 sawmill at Wardner, East Kootenay; $100,000 plant at Slocan City;  large plant at Arrowhead; large plant  at Cascade, besides others. In addition to this, the old established sawmills are doing a good business. Immense areas of fine timber land have  been taken up, and in a short time the  industry will be second only to that of  mining.   That zinc Iiinng to the clouds in the  Slocan district seems to be getting  brighter.

Speaks Well ��� It speaks well for  the enterprise of citizens of Revelstoke  that this city is becoming one of the  principal centers of the province for  the flotation of mining and industrial  enterprises.���Revelstoke Mail.  The editorial joke writer has lost a  prolific subject, now that the greatest  coal strike of the century is over.  Delinquent tax sales throughout  British Columbia are quite effective in  stirring up the negligent realty owners.  \V. A. Galliher, M. P., is reported  as making a tour of his constituency.  Wonder if he'll reach the Boundary for  the first visit worth mentioning since  he was elected.  East and west the newspaper men  have been telling what a tart time the  members of the Dominion cabinet have  been having. It was gospel truth, too:  strange to say.  Greatest Leader ��� The great  emergency will always find the man.  John Mitchell was a year ago viitually  unknown to the world. Today he  stands the proven greatest leader of  the Labor army.���Vancouver World.  In one day, the Slocan Drill says,  $275 was sent out of that town to the  T. Eaton Co. This record, unfortunately; can be duplicated in nearly every  camp in British Columbia.  Socialism leceived a great lift by the  coal miners' strike in Pennsylvania.  Thousands who never before believed  in government ownership of coal mines,  are now fully convinced. This was a  result that the coal barons did not calculate upon, and it will not help them  in future labor troubles.  It appears as though Uncle Sam  would really soon become heir to all  the troubles and vicissitudes of the  Panama canal. Unlike the French  people, Uncle Sam is likely to profit,  though.        The Boundary's big six ��� Granby,  Mother Lode, Snowshoe, Sunset, B.C.  mine and Emma���are steadily shipping ore to the smelters in increasing  quantities. The average rate is now  about 2,000 tons daily from Boundary  mines, which will be increased to 2,-  500 tons per day in the near future.  The Doukhobors say they would  like to remove from the Northwest to  British Columbia, but do not wish to  be amenable to our laws. This class  of immigrants do not lack for assurance, to say the least, and it is not surprising that the provincial government  has turned down their application emphatically.  It is pleasing lo note���and the fact  is semi-officially confirmed ��� that the  Mother Lode mine and smelter are  making a net profit of $1,000 per day  at present. This is at the rate of over  30 par cent per annum on the capital  stock of the company. Evidently  there will be more than one Boundary  mining concern that will begin to distribute some profits among the shareholders in the near future.

The visit of a party of English journalists to the B. C Mining camps  naturally caused local mine managers  to refer to their particular districts in  the most glowing colors. 'I he statements made by the superintendent ol  the Knob Hill and Old Iionsides  mines, in the Boundary, are, however,  deserving of attention, as the immense  future before this district is not appreciated as it deserves.  Mr. Williams, the superintendent,  stated that since he left Wales, 32 years  ago, he had worked in all the principal  mining districlsin the United States,  but nowhere had he seen such enoi -  mous ore bodies as in the mines over  which he now has charge. The huge  ore bodies he describes as practically  inexhaustible; some of the slopes of the  Iionsides mine were 400 feet in width.  They were now mining at a depth of  700 feet from the suiface, and they had  pioved by means of a diamond drill  ihat the ore existed to a further depth  of 1,000 feet. Knowing this, they had  commenced the erection of a plant  which would be the largest in Canada  and enable them to mine 5,000 tons a  day.  The average value of these great ore  bodies is, of course, low; but with such  an output as contemplated, they will  have a marked effect in a few yeais'  time on the world's copper output, and,  from indications in other mines of the  district, there is every reason to anticipate that thc^ftoundary district will become one of the greatest copper producers in the world.

'Phoney  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  S   QROWINfl BY LEAPS AND BOUNDS.  ��� . In'Kootenay and' southeastern Yale  "the industry that overshadows all oth-  'ers is'that of mining.' At the same time  another���that of lumber manufaclur  \Ing���has k'rown to such proportions in  the last year or two that it it is attact-  ing more than passing notice.  1 ��� In the growth of ths mining industry  'the sawmiilers have had, and still  l.have, a profitable trade. Now, however, they are' reaching out and cap-  ituring the trade of the Northwest Ter-  ;. fitories, a section that is fast settling  < up and is growing by leaps and bounds  ���' literally. As a result old sawmills are  j being rehabilitated, and new large  .plants are being installed at advantageous points. Thus a most important  industry is being built up, that will result in bringing in large sums of money  -to one branch of trade, and (bus to all  "others.  The world needs to be reminded as  much as to be informed.  The ads that pay are those that hold  forth a proposition in line with the  public's wants.  Too much stress is laid upon position for advertisements. An advertisement is good almost anywhere in a  newspaper.  An ad today may save you running  sixteen times the space tomorrow to  bring back the customer who yielded to  the seductiveness of a coniDetitor's advertising.  There are men who when they sit  ���down at a table d'hote dinner, eat voraciously, regardless of their stomachs,  being moved by a purpose to "get their  money's worth." There are advertisers of the same "mind. They buy space,  and think they are cheated if they x do  not.crowd it with reading matter.  Origin of the Devil.  - There is a hoodoo in every newspaper office, says the Ottawa, Kan., Herald. It hides behind the cobwebs and  comes out at critical times, and gets in  its dastardly work. The story of how  the newspaper hoodoo was born is told  with hushed breath in every, printing  office. They say that when Gutten-  barg started the first newspaper in Germany a maiden lady of advanced years  persuaded some irresponsible youth to  marry her. She left word at the newspaper office that the thing be properly  .written up. The paper told the facts,  including the statement about the  biide's age, looks and disposition, and  she being mad with rage, sold herself  to the devil and was transformed into  an evil spirit. To this day this evil  ,spirit prowls around newspaper offices.  Don't laugh when you see ludicrous  things in the paper. They are the  devil's work.  GEORGE GIBSON  SHAVING PARLORS  and BATHROOM.

Agt.,  Oct.  Like a thunderbolt out of the blue  en me the news Inst week that Jnhn A.  Manly, of Grand Forks, had been   arrested, charged with  complicity  with  the burning of t|,e Columbia hotel over  three ��� ears ago.    When   the  dreadful  cal.istiophe occured,   the  matter  was  thoroughly thrashed out, and 'was'finally allowed to rest with the conviction  of the man, Cann/ion,  who con lessee!  10 the crime of setting the hotel on fne.  The provincial police,   however,   have  been quietly working on the  case for  some lime past,  and   seemingly   have  discovered something.    At the time of  the fire it created a  great  sensation,  and, apparently, there is likely  lobe  another sensation over the same  matter, especially if the charges are   made  to stick.  Much interested is manifested in the  case of the V., V. & E. crossing the C.  R R. and Kettle Valley tracks at  Grand Forks, thereby permitting the  first mentioned company to build to  the Granby tmelter and on to Phoenix.  At this writing the decision of the railway committee at Ottawa on the question is not known. Should it not be  favorable, there are those who would,  according to report, be only too glad to  turn out and put in that much desired  crossing; courts or no courts, and let  others fight it out afterwards. This  would certainly be a high handed procedure, but more remarkable things  than this have been reported as hap.-  pening at or near Grand Forks.  MS  Recently the Observer took a trip  through most of the towns of the Boundary, and he was struck with the increased feeling of hojiefulness that seemed to prevail among nearly all classes.  Not that general business is now so  much better than it has been during  the last few months, but there is a feeling that the hardest of time" are practically over for the present. In othei  words, that we are on the edge of much  better times, but leaving but the boom  element. Business men generally seem  to have cause for the faith that is in  .them, and act and talk accordingly.

The council of the Institute of Mining and Metallnrgy, recognizing the  great importance, to the mining industry and to the public generally, of the  subject dealt with in the paper on "Ore  in Sight," by Mr. J. D. Kendall, appointed a committee to consider what  steps the institute might usefully take  in defining the term "Ore in Sight."  The views expressed by leading members of the profession showed a great  divergence of opinion as to the definition of the term.  After due consideration and discussion the council came to the following  decision:  1. That the members of the institute should not make use of the term  "Ore in Sight" in their reports without  indicating, in the most explicit niannei  the data upon which the estimate is  based, and that it is most desirable that  estimates should be illustrated by drawings,  2. That as the term "Ore in Sight"  is frequently used to indicate two separate factors in an estimate, namely:  (n) Ore Blocked Out ���that is, ore  exposed on at least three sides within  reasonable distance of each other-rr-and  (I)) Ore which may be reasonably  assumed to exist, though not actually  "blocked out,"  these two factors should in all cases be  kept distinct, as (n) is governed by fixed rules, whilst (b) is dependent upon  individual judgment and local experience.  3. That is making use of the term  "Ore in Sight" an engineer should de  monstrate that the ore so denominated  is capable of being profitably extracted  under the working conditions obtaining  in the district  4. That the members of the Institution be urged to protect the best in-'  Work is being resumed on' the  Homestake, Rossland camp.  The Ty.ee ships 100 tons of ore a  day to Ladysmith smelter.  The Enterprise, Slocan lake, is making arrangements to save zinc.  The Le Roi and Le Roi No. 2, at  Rossland, are about to amalgamate.  A slump has taken place in Le Roi  stock, falling from ��2. 15s. to ��1.-  16s. 3d. '���".:  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were 7,772 ton*, making 273,371 tons  for the year to date. ;,;.'  The September profits of the Le Roi,  estimated, are cabled from London as  |563,ooo. . '>;Y;;; Y'.'\  Preparations are beingmade for testing the Edison electric process on ores  ���of Slocan to extract zinc.   '  '.; Atlin yielded a million in gold this  year, or double last yeai's operations,  mainly due to hydraulicing.-  , The Noble! Five has again closed  down pending settlement of litigation.  The mine never looked better.  The Arlington,,, at Slocan City, is  shipping.to Trail.. Formerly the pip-  duct was handled by the Nelson smelter. "���;���'���'  The Quatsino and Clayoquot are  two new mining divisions recently created on the west shore of Vancouver  island. '���'.������ ,;'������!  Railways have made a freight rate  of $11 per ton on Slocan zinc ore to  Iola, Kansas. Other zinc smelters are  after the output.  A party of eastern shareholders has  been visiting the properties of the Northwestern Development Syndicate in the  Lardeau this week.  Work has been resumed on the Black  Beat, Ymir. The tunnel is already in  116 feetand two shafts have been sunk,  one 50 and the other 25 feet.  The Beatrice Mines, Limited, with  a capital of $500,000, in 50-cent.  shares, was gazetted last week, to acquire and operate the Beatrice, F'olsom  ind Edmund claims on Mohawk creek,  Lardeau.  According to the News Byron White  predicts Kootenay will within a very  short time have a greater measure of  prosperity than ever before, and the  prospeiily will be largely due to work  ing mines that produce zinc ores.  GeoYW. Hughes'sold his quarter interest Jn the Alamo group, Slocan, lasi  week, for $75,000. The owners of the  other three-quarters, the Scottish Coio:  nial Syndicate, we're the purchasers.

Over IriVona  of ; the' corners    was < 'a': handsomely  carved writing-desk furnished with all  sorts of stationery.'  While I was wondering what I was there for, a gentleman of Irreproachable attire and manners, entered, and asked how he could  serve me.    I  explained that I would  like two hundred and fifty dollars on  ray letter of credit, and wondered how  he knew I was on American, but he  had  doubtless learned from  long experience to distinguish the different nationalities,  and  I soon  discovered  br  the manner In whlchhe received subsequent arrivals that he could speak  German end French   as   fluently as  English. , I 'handed him  my letter of  credit, end he bowed politely and left  the room.   For a time I was alone with  my own thoughts.   I looked over all  the  books  and    papers,   watched  the  trafflo in the street from the window,  made two or three entries in my notebook, and wondered if the polite gentleman had not forgotten all about me,  when a page In buttons entered with  a silver  tray,  upon  which  were  two  drafts ��� duplicates ��� for my signature.  The little fellow bowed like a French  dancing-master,  and   seemed    to    be  deeply impressed with a sense: of responsibility. ; He came in several times  afterward    on    similar    service     for  other people, and his salutes were repeated  each  time  with an exactness  that showed careful training.   I was  afraid he was going to be gone all day,  and-:became.impatient.    I sat down at  the desk  to write a, letter,: and  had  written nearly a whole sheet when he  came back with my letter of credit and  the money upon his tray.   But the latter was all In bills.   I handed him one  of  them  and   asked   him   to   gret  it  changed.   He bowed again and disappeared.      I  must' have  spent' fifteen  minutes regretting my folly, when the  handsome manager came In to enquire  if there had been a m Is take. He seemed  to think I had been overpaid, and was  greatly relieved when I told him I only  wanted  a   bill   changed.    , He  disappeared, and It was another ten minutes  before the boy returned with the smaller bills.    I had been in that room for  more than three-quarters of an hour."  Anecdotal.  It la related that once, when a cap-  We Thrashed You.

In his book, "In a  Minster Garden," the' Dean's  causerie revolves amiably round Ely,  but where he discourses an his holiday  in the New World he becomes most  amusing1. Of. Chicago he says: ��� "I  thought It the most hatefully unlovely  city I ever was In. There wer�� line  buildings, of course���warehouses for  the most, pari, of the 'sky-scraping'  variety���but, as a whole, hateful, aim-  ply hateful���a clanking wilderness of  endless ��� streets, monotonous, unplc-  turesque, untidy, dirty, foul." ������....  Tet the Dean tells at least one story  which, proves that Chicago, for all its  unlovellness, has a knack of digesting-  all who go to live there. It relates to  Archdeacon Rushton, the secretary of  Bishop Maclaren. The Archdeacon was  a Torkshireman by birth; he had married a Canadian; but he had, been settled for some time In Chicago. "His  children, he told me, were born in that  city. One day lately his youngest boy  came home from school looking grave  and solemn. He had Just been promoted to the history class, and had  been reading about the War of Independence. 'Father,' he said, 'are you a  Britisher?' 'Yes, my boy, I am.' 'Oh!  . . . Mother, are you a Britisher?'  'Yes, dear, I am,' she said. 'Well,' he  replied, after a pause,' 'I don't care.  You had the King's army, and we  were only & lot of farmers, but we  thrashed you!'"  r  Spokane falls and northern  NELSON  &   FORT   SHEPPARI'  RED MOUNTAIN WY.  Washington and Great Nor.

At the age  of eight or ten he was seized  with the "perpatual motion" Idea, and  began to make all sorts of queer machines, despite the advice of his father,  who told him of men that had devoted  their lives to a vain search for perpetual motion.  "It violates the first principles of  mechanics, my boy," said his father.  "Action and reaction are equal, as you  .will understand some day. When you  can pull yourself up by your bootstraps, you may hope to Invent a machine that will start itself and run  without stopping."  The next day Willie came to his  father in great excitement and told  him he had done It���had pulled himself up by his bootstraps.  "It's no trick at all," he said.as he  led the way to the barn, where he  showed his bewildered father a pair of  old boots nailed, soles up, to a beam  overhead.  "There!" he exclaimed, as he climbed  on a box, reached up, ran his Angers  through the straps of the boots and  pulled himself up. "What do you think  of that?" ,  Willie's father did not reply In words.  Instead, he took a harness strap, and  then and there Willie gave an imitation of perpetual motion which required no elaborate apparatus.  Christmas Unmasked.  In modorn London, the Christmas  spirit is not, I maintain, a spontaneous spirit from within yourselves, but  a spirit which Dickens foisted Into you.  For Christmas Itself you have no real  sentiment; but you continue to keep  It, cannot help keeping it, for Dickens'  sake, in tlie regulation way. It Is a  mere literary survival.���Max Beerbohm  In "Pall Mall Magazine."  Over the grave of his wife in an English  village  a  poetry loving  widower  has just erected a monument bearing  this verse from the Rubalyat:  "A Book   of   Verses   underneath   th��  Bough,  A Jug of Wine, a Loaf of Bread���and  Thou  Beside me singing in  the    Wilderness-*  Oh, Wilderness were Paradise enow!"  tain in th�� army was cornered by the '  enemy, be'addressed his then as foi- .  Iowa: "My men, fight like demons until  your powder gives out, then run.   I'm  ��� little-lame, I'll start now."  An English rector on coming Into ft '  new parish, asked tlie clerk if there  were any Puseyites (followers of Dr.  Pusey, a toigih churchman) in the com* >  munlty. "No, sir," replied the clerk;  "there used to be some, but for the last  two years the boys have took all'their  eggs." '  Mark Twain was recently, chaffing. Sir i  Wemyss Reld on the vagaries of English pronunciation. "You spell a name  B-e-a-u-o-h-a-nt-p, and pronounce it,  Marchbanke," be said. "And you do  precisely the same thing," replied (Mr  Wemyss. "Wihat do you mean?"' asked  Mark Twain. "Well, you spell your  name C-1-e-m-e-n-s, and you pronounce  itTrtvaiu."  An error of a new clerk in the mailing department of an English publish-  ing house was responsible the other  day for the malting of a prospectus to  a world-famous statesman, who had  been dead for some years. The letter  was returned a few days later,- with the  following endorsement: "In Heaven,   , 1901. Gentlemen: As your publications are not permitted to circulate  here, I believe It would be useless for  me .to subscribe for them. Yours respectfully," and here followed the name  of the .famous statesman.  When asked what ihe thought' ot a  certain captain who frequented the Essex links, a Scotch caddie said: "Wee!,  ���air, he's a verra'nice gentleman an' a  good gaufer, tout he's awfu' nerraf-aw-  fu' nerra." "Narrow! What 'do' you  mean, Donald?" "Weel, slr,< It wis this  way. Efter the game was ower, and I  had carried his clubs up tae the house,  he says: 'Donald, will; ye hae a draw?'  and I said: 'I, do be verra pleased,' bo  he getsthe bottle, an' he pourln'- awa'  intae a glass, an' I wantln' tae be gen*  teel, says: 'Stop! stop'���an' he stopped."  What to do with Jefferson Davla  should he be captured, was a problem  that puzzled Lincoln's Cabinet not a little: .Iri: speaking of it to General Grant  one day, the 'President remarked:  "There was once an Irishman who had  signed the Father Ma the w temperance  pledge. Going into a saloon to get. a  glass of lemonade to quench his thirst,  he leaned over and whispered to the  barkeeper: 'And couldn't you put a little ; brandy in It unbeknownst, to me-  Bilf?' So," continued Mr. Lincoln, "let  Davis escape ail unbeknown to yourself  if you can."  D. B. Stock well, the popular actor,  says tihat some years ago in San Francisco, when Peter Jackson, the colored  pugilist, was a feature in a revival ol  "Uncle Tom's Cabin," "Bill"������ Nye; was  to have lectured at the,Baldwin Theater, but was greeted by so small 'an  audience that he excused himself and  went over to hear Jackson talking of  the pearly gates to Little Eva. After  the performance Stockwell met Nye in  the lobby of the theater, arid he exclaimed: "Hello, Nye! What did you  think of Peter?"',: "Well,".responded the  humorist, dryly, "anatornically -he was  great/but Uncle Tomically he is the  worst I ever saw."  Dr. Varnadoe, a noted professor of  Greek, is very fond of flowers, and  some days ago, on returning from his  college duties, he found In bis front  yard a pestiferous calf belonging to a  'neighbor. The doctor ] gave chase, and  the animal plunged toward the flower-  pit, and in another instant crashed  through the glass cover and mixed at  random with the pots and plants below. WJien anotiher professor passed a  few minutes later, he said, gravely: "I  do not understand. Dr. Vamadoe, why  you should object so seriously to having a modest cowslip . added to your  fine collection of plants." The doctor's  frowning face relaxed. "Ah, Sanborn,"  be retorted, "you see, this was only a  worthless biilrusi."  !' "Not long ago a tourist in New Orleans went to see the statue of Andrew  Jackson in that city, on the pedestal of  wnich is Inscribed, "United We Stand;  Divided We Fall." Seeingr an old colored man standing by, he asked, "Uncle, did tihat inscription stay there all  during the Civil War?" "No, sah,"re-  sponded the old uncle, "hit didn't etay  dar endurln' de wan.

While talking one day with  Mr.  Scott,  tile man  who built  the battleship "Oregon," relates a writer in the  Boston "Journal," Mrs. McKinley said:  "Oh, do you play crlbbage, Mr. Scott?"  "Yes," was the great shipbuilder's answer.   "Well, so do I," said Mrs. McKinley. "I wish you would play a game  with me."    "I should be delighted to  do so," was the reply.   Later, as President  McKinley  and    Mr.   Scott  were  looking over the latter's big plant, Mrs.  McKinley not being present, the President said: "Oh, by the ..way, Mr. Scott,  didn't I hear you  and Mrs. McKinley  arranging to play crlbbage some time?"  "Yes," said Mr. Scott, "we are going to  play."    "Well,  what kind ot a player  are you?" asked  the President.    "Oh,  pretty fair,   I guess;   I play a pretty  good game."   "Well, so do I," said Mr.  McKinley.    "But, do you know. It may  seem strange, but it is a fact, that I  nave never been able to play well enough  to beat  Mrs.  McKinley."    As  he said  this he looked at Mr. Scott with a significant smile.   Their eyes met.   It was  enough.    Mr. Scott understood, and It  was safe to say that he did not beat  Mrs. McKinley.

P. Davis, the eminent legal light of the coast, will be on  hand to defend the accused.  Died in Providence Camp���Wm.  Kennaugh, father of Mrs. Fred Whit-  well, died in Providence camp, two  miles from Phoenix, last week Thursday, after an illness of but 18 hours,  having been stricken with paralysis.  He was a natjve of the Isle of Man,  ��� and was 72 years of age. The funeral  was held at Greenwood last Saturday.  :Xost His Job���Tuesday's passenger  train was eight hours late in reaching  Phoenix. As the train was coming out  of the Eholt yards,, a section man got  rattled and turned a switch, letting the  engine and coach run out on the ties.  It took till nearly midnight to get them  on again, the section man working with  the rest He is now looking for an  other job.  Boundarv Man Killed ��� Harry  C. Adams, a brother of Mrs. L. A.  Smith, of Anaconda, and who resided  there for a couple of years, was killed  last week by a cave-in at the Le Roi  mine, Rossland, where he was employed. He left a young widow, a widowed mother, a brother and two sisters to  mourn his loss. He was a son-in-law  of Richard Hutchens, formerly foreman at the Mother Lode mine.  Remarkable Gain ��� Secretary  Bambury, of the local Carpenters'  Union, has received particulars of the  growth of the international organization,  which show it to be steadily enlarging.  At present the United Brotherhood of  Carpenters and Joiners of America has  a membership of 105,000, with 1,170  local unions. The gain during the past  year, to September 25th, was 35,420  members, and 312 local unions.  Wedded Next Week���Miss Stella  Flewelling, second, daughter of Rev. E.  P.

The ceremony will  take place at ten o'clock, and after a  wedding trip the couple will settle down  in Sandon, where Mr. Towgood is in  ' the brewery business.  Were Afraid ���The Grand' Forks  base ball nine failed to turn up in Phoenix last Sunday, as agreed, but invited  the Phoenix boys to the Forks a second time. The Smelter City twirlers  evidently have a healthy regard for the  Granby fans on the base ball field, as  they-have not mustered up sufficient  courage to visit the town where the  nines are this summer.  Blessed the Bell ��� Last Sunday  evening a large audience was present  at the Catholic service at Miners' Union  hallj when His Lordship Bishop Dont-  enyille, of New Westminster, blessed  the new church bell, which had been  purchased for the organization here.

Father Bedard, the local sheperd  of the flock, was also present at the  services, and took part   It is expect-  Had a Little Respite ��� For the  first time since the Phoenix ,General  Hospital was opened, this week there  was not a patient there. Although  there is likely to be patients at any  minute, it gave Matron Johnson and  Nurse Fraser a much needed little rest.  J. A.
