Local officials have as yet received  no instructions as to resuming, but as  these will'corhe from the British Columbia Copper company in future it  will be a-matter of when the latter company will be in shape to handle! the  ore at its smelter. It will be but a  matter of a day or so till two of the  furnaces will be blown in, which wiH>fc  handle ores from the Mother Lode  and Oro Denoro mines. Two of the  furnaces will be enlarged this summer  and work is being commenced on one  of them at once  The Hritish Columbia Copper company will resume operations at the  smelter on June 1st.  O.

H. Scheftels Market Letter" is  the title of a pamphlet issued in New  York. It appears to be of the "wildcat" species of stock sheets; and makes  statements which are wild in the extreme.  In a recent issue it gives space to a  concocted story about the Granby  mine being in such bad condition that  the management has lost certain workings by caving; that "the mine is get-  ,ng so dangerous that men are being  killed there pretty regularly," etc., etc.  The Pioneer would not feel inclined  to reply to such malicious, statements  were it not for the fact that a subscriber writes us asking if there is any  truth in the article, and perhaps there  may be others who might swallow  such reports if they are not refuted.  In the first place the Granby mine  has probably never been in better  shape from a shipping standpoint than  it is today; that is borne out in the fact  that the Granby is working no more  men but is shipping more ore daily  than in any previous year. In othtj  words, Granby has shipped 518,000  tons of ore this year to date, as com  pared with 385,000 tons shipped during the same period last year, and the  force is no larger.  There have been no cave-ins of  workings at the Granby; there have  been cave-ins in the property, but  these were brought about and were expected. For some months sloping  has been going on with the intention  of caving the old No. 1 shaft workings;  all buildings, machine shops, etc., have  been removed with that object in view.  Regarding Granby mine being dangerous for men to work; no person has  ever been killed in the Granby by a  cave in. The Pioneer has taken occasion to procure actual statistics; the  death rate at the Granby mine for the  past five years, since Jan. 1, 1905, to  date, has been six-tenths of one per  cent. This covers the period since  Granby might be called a large property, and we doubt if there is another  mine of its size on the continent with  such a low mortality rate.  There are other statements of similar calibre in Scheftsl's, but no reply  is necessary.  7$7i*}Sl:.Bn>6]dyri>~v%hursd*ym  mapped out and bythe time the Green- f r^V.,/8**"** ^^ffT^n %r I ^eRoy iddnssscd-the^sitors on "gep  rr .

There is at the present time  being consumed more copper each day  than was ever the case in the world's  history, and it is further the consensus  of opinion that consumption' at this  time either equals or slightly exceeds  production.  One fact, which seems to have been  lost sight of by the copper speculators  who are glutting the metal market and  scaring consumers, is that copper does  not grow each year like wheat, and  that the diversity of its uses is continually extending. As a nation, we  have only a certain amount, and there  would seem to be neither justification  nor reason in such. prodigality in its  outputs now seems to be the endeavor in somequarters.-U.S. Investor  Mlslat Records  Following are the locations, csitifi-  cates of work, bills of sale, etc, recorded in the Government office, of the  Grand Forks mining division, for the  past week.

The protective committee of minority holders of Dominion Copper Co.  stock who did not exchange their  holdings for shares in the New Dominion Co. will make no appearance  at the meeting as their grieveance is  against the: management of the old  company.  Bloer-Lewls Boat  ��� The fifteen-round boxing bout between Billy Biner and Kid Lewis last  Monday evening proved a feast for  local pugilistic fans. There was a good  attendance, a special train bringing  about fifty from Eholt, who enthusiastically'backed Lewis, whose present  domicile is in the Boundary railway  metropolis. The bout was decided a  draw by the referee, James Church,  tho 'gh there is no doubt Biner showed class throughout the contest  Both Biner and Lewis weighed in  within a pound and a half of each  other, though the latter had an ad van  tage of being taller by a couple of  inches than the local champion. Good  preliminaries preceded the match.  In the preliminaries Scholes got the  decision over Scotty Lackie on points,  while spirited scraps between Tmnetti  and Boyce, and George Biner and Joe  Mueller were decided draws.

Seated at the head of the table was  Judge Williams, whose J'lofty." remarks  as. toastmaster sparkled throughout the  evening. The first gun in the proceedings was fired ' by the McGill  boys, who gave the college yell with  sympathetic emphasis. The toast  "The King" was responded to by all  singing-the national anthem; "Our  City" was responded to by Mayor D.  J.. Matheson; "The Profession," O. E.  LeRoy and Dr. Porter; "Our Guests,"  Dr, Dickson and G. E. Murray; "The  Press," T. A. Love; "High Financing,"  J. E. Thompson; P. Boyles, diamond  drill expert, was also called. Prof.  Porter, in expressing appreciation for  courtesies shown the students at the  Granby, one of the big mines of the  world, proposed a toast to "The Man  Behind the Gun," to which he asked  Mr. Smith to respond. Mr. Smith, in  responding, said he took no particular  credit to himself for what was being  done at the Granby, the entire staff  shared in it; the keys of the property  were at the disposal of the students.  During the evening Dr. Dickson rendered a song, the students sang a  number of college selections, while an  orchestra interspersed with music. The  program concluded with "Auld Lang  Syne."  Students at Baseball  As a touching finale to the stay of  the McGill students in Phoenix, a five-  inning baseball game was pulled off on  the local diamond Thursday afternoon.  The game was classy of its kind and  mainly due to the brand of dope used  by our Mr. Strutzel, who reared his  majestic form on the rubber, Phoenix  was able to touch McGill for the game.

McGill showed the  effects of their hard trip in the error  column���the errors being considerably  to blame for the lar^e number of hits  chalked up to the Phoenix boys. The  slant effect of the local diamond and  the "cut on the bias" aspect of the  landscape were likewise in a measure  responsible for several bad overthrows  by the "rah rah" youths.  Fortier and Oughtred formed the  constellation for McGill. Oughtred,  in centre field, pulled down from the  clouds three' beautiful ily balls that  would have uhdei other circumstances  piled up ; runs for Phoenix. Fortier  played all-round classy ball and is en*  titled tb some credit; for the small  score, while Murray and Koch, the  battery, passed around a rare selection  'of fruit. "'���������' ��� ���'"'���'���'  "Old Man Joe" certainly indicated  that he is still far from a possibility of  being classed among the "has beens";  he dished up a beautiful assoitment,  inluding his celebrated "fade away"  and his, classic "salome." The embryo engineers failed in an- attempt to  locate and plot the famous Fade Away  and the lack of attire of Salome caused  them many a blush. Mr. Si Perkins  was on the receiving end of the firing  line and handled Joe's offerings with  pious zeal. Claude on first completed  the triumvirate of Phoenix satellites  and with the exception of a crooked  ore by Corbet, handled all the throws  to first with infihate exactness. With  these three notables rests the guiltiness  of McGiU's defeat; a perusal of the  score card makes this fact strikingly  evident.  McGill were not as handy with the  willow as the miners and therein, of  course, lies the ultimate cause of the  Phoenix victory. At times, the locals  took very kindly to the offertory of the  McGill slant artist and indications of a  swatfest ,were in evidence on several  occasions.  The game was witnessed by a rather  small, but highly appreciative, number  of' spectators, among whom was a  sprinkling of Phoenix fair femininity,  whose presence was without doubt a tribute to the personal attractiveness of  the representatives of McGill. The  gratitude of both teams is due Judge  Williams for the highly efficient way in  which'he manipulated the indicator,  and although there were voices raised  in complaint as to the' high and low  balls yet,, looking at the matter from  the Judge's high point of view, there  can oe no disputing the fact that his  decisions were of a high standard of excellence, t  ���Old McGill���        AH. .
