Premier ��� Prior announces  that lie is promised dissolution in any  event, but one can haidly accept this  in view of its setting asideconstitution-  al law and precedent.  At today's sitting of the house Prior  said: "JSelore business commences, 1  wish to be permitted to make a statement of great, importance to the province and this house."  lie then traced the events leading to  his becoming a member of the Dnns-  muir cabinet, and went into the various  Columbia & Western land deals, the  seaiehmg investigation of which has  been the cause of the downfall of the  Pi ior government. He was interrupted  a number of limes in the course of his  explanation.  Eberts, Wells and Mclnnes also  spoke, the latter saying he had handed  in his resignation, Messrs. Eberts and  Well* having been , dismissed. Co!.  Prior's motion that the house adjourn  till -2 o'clock Friday was negatived by  17 lo 15. Finally he cariied a motion  10 adjourn.  The feeling at Victoria is that the  Prior Government is doomed in.any  event, with the chance ol no supply being granted before dissolution. This  would, of course, mean an early election, three months being the earliest  possible date, but in the meantime there  would be no funds available for government uses, unless the estimates are  passed before dissolution.  The investigating committee of the  house, which has been silting several  weeks, reported, endorsing the action  of the legislature in revoking the East  Kootenay land giants to the C. P, R.  CELEBRATION AT MIDWAY.   .  Phoenix Base Ball Team get Away Willi Second Moaky.  Every town in the Boundary was rep  resented at Midwav's'- Victoria Day  celebration last MoiicJay, and a large  contingent went down from Phoenix,  as usual. The occasion itself was a  great success, the chief features being  the games of base ball between Phoenix, Grand Forks a-id Gieenwopd.  In   the  arrangement. Grand  Forks  and   Greenwood   played   the  first game, but the boys from  the Folks were  too nflich for  the'Boundary Creek fans, the  latter coming out at the small  end of the horn with a score ^  ol three to 20 ��� when, the scorer got  tired of keeping tally.  Following  this  game, with  a slight  interval, came the Grand Forks-l'hoe-  ' nix match.    The team from the  ftV Forks was apparently in the bet-  STRONG BOX FOR  CITY GASH  ENGLISH VISITORS IN THE BOUNDARY.  Council Decides to Invest in a  Two Ton Safe.

TWO SILENT  COMPRESSORS  Electricity Has-   Driven   Out  Steam.  Granby Directors En Route  The parly of Granby Co, directois,  which left Montreal last Monday, on a  pleasure and business visit to the n.ines  of the company in this  camp,   passed  through   Winnipeg   Wednesday, . and  will probably arrive in  the   Boundary  in a day or two.    The party is  travel  ling in the private car I.ucania, which  has been placed at   their  disposal  by  the C.  P. 'R.     After   inspecting   the  mines and smelter of the company, the  parly will return over the Great Northern.    Included in the party are S. H.  C. Miner, president of the Gianby Co.,  with M.s. Miner,   of  Montreal;  John  Stanton, of New York;   W. A.   Payne,  of Boston; J. B. Francis I leneshofT, a  brother of the designer of the Reliance,  the cup defender; A. I,. White, of New  Voik,  and   Clement S. Houghton, of  Hoslnn.  General Manager Graves, of the  Granby Co., arrived at Grand Folks  last night, and the eastern men will arrive there next Monday. The following day the entire party will probably  have their special car brought up to  Phoenix.  GRANBY LANDMARKS ARE NOW IDLE  Old Machines Furnished Power For Getting  Out 750,000 Tons of Ore. in Less Than  Three Years.  Was a Peculiar Accident.  Wednesday night, while working in  the Old Ironsides mine, Anton Johnson, a Finlander, met with a most peculiar accident���which will lay liim up  lor a number of weeks at least. His  ore car got off the track, and in endeavoring to get it on again, the loaded  car fell over on him, breaking his aim  and dislocating both his shoulder and  elbow. He is being cared for at the  Phoenix General Hospital in the usual  excellent way employed in that institution.  L. A. Manly lias bought Iheinteiest  of Alex. Miller in the Grand Forks Investment and Trust Co.  The Granby Co, now has two idle  ten cj 1 ill Canadian Rand air compressors, one each at the Old Ironsides  anc Knob Hill mines, having been replaced by the electrically driven 60  drill compressor, part of which was recently put in commission,  The work accomplished by drills  operated by these two steam driven  compressors is equal to nearly four  miles of underground woik'ings, including drilling, crosscutiing, sinking and  laisin'g on the different properties ot  the company, which does not include  the immense amount of surface woik  also done. In addition to this an elec-  tiic light plant, three or four hoists and  several pumps were operated by these  compressors steadily since they were  installed. The first half of the Old  Ironsides compressor was placed in operation in August, 1 SyS, the second  half following a few months later. The  Knob Hill compressor was put in during the summer of 1900.  In tonnage it is learned that these  compressors have furnished the power  to get out and ship 750,000 tons of  ore, or 2,500 onloads, from the Granby  mines���alj of which has been shipped  within three years, the first train of ore  being sent out in July, 1900.,  K01 a few days after the first part  of the new giant compressor was put  in use, steam was kept up in the Old  Ironsides compressor, and pumps and  hoists only were run by this power; but  by tomorrow the entire power for these  mines will be electrically driven. No  more will the Granby Co. have to find  ten or fifteen cords of wood per day  for the old compressors. Their day of  usefulness is past, and they now rest  silent and idle in the buildings that  were specially erected for them in the  early days of the mines. For the  piesent, however, they will be held in  reserve for use in an emeigency, in  case of an accident to the Cascade  power line or plant.  At this week's regular session of the  city council Mayor Rumberger and  Aldermen Porter, McDonald, and  Graham were present, the absentees  being Aldermen Marshall, Birnie and  Riordah.  Two matters of importance were attended to, one of which was the decision to secure a safe for the use ol  the city clerk. A Greenwood business  firm, that is retiring, offered to sell the  city a serviceable safe at a bargain,  namely $300, and , it was decided to  accept the offer. The safe weighs two  tons and stands five feet high, being  consequently almost as large as the  city office itself. City Clerk Matheson has long wanted a safe for the preservation of valuable papers, tax rolls,  assessment rolls, etc., as did clerk McMillan before him.  The council also authorized the city  clerk to order 200 feet additional of  Paragon fire hose, for the use of the  volunteer fire brigade. This will cost  the city about $200.  At last week's meeting of the city  council, the chief business done was  the adoption of a resolution to the efiect  that after this school year no children  living out of the city limits will be admitted to the city school without paying a fee therefor. The city has applied to the provincial government for  relief in this matter, as a large number  of the children attending live outside  the corporation limits, their parents paying no taxes whatever to the city. The  department of education, however,  gave no satisfaction in the matter.  Parliamentary Party Will Look Over Our Mines  About the Middle of September.  The fifth congress of the Chambers  of Commerce of the Empire will be  held in Montreal between the 17th  and 20th of August. Other years this  convention Was held in London, but it  was decided to hold ���the meetings in  Montreal this year in order logive the  business men of Great Britain a, favorable oppoitunity to study the resources  of the most important colony of the  empite. After the congress the delegates will tour through the country  and will reach the Boundary about  September 14th.   '  Mr. Geo. Hadwill, secretary , of the  Montreal Board of Trada, who is also  secretary of the committee appointed  to look after the comforts of the visitors  and arrange their itinerary, has wiitten  ihat from advices received to date it is  probable that at least two hundred  delegates from Great Britain and her  colonies (apart from Canada) will be  present at this gathering. The Canadian committee of arrangements has  prepared a list of tours in order to enable the visitors to traverse Canada.  Naturaily they depend upon the local  Hoard of Trade, at the points visited,  for advice and assistance in rendering  the journey profitable and agreeable.  l( present plans can be carried out  the party, travelling in two sections of  about fifty each, would reach the Boundary by special from Rossland.  Doubtless the local boards of trade  and city councils of the Boundary will  take the matter Up, and extend every  courtesy to the distinguished visitors.  FIVE YEARS AT  FAMOUS MINE  Knob Hill  Shipped  442,281  Tons.  IN A LITTLE LESS THAN THREE YEARS  Two Men Who Did Original Development  Work Are Slid in the Employ of Ihe  Company.  Victoria Day in Phoenix.  Victoria Day, last Monday, in Phoenix wis quiet, owing to.the fact that  the greater number of our people who  could get away took in the celebration  in Midway. The postoffice, bank and  business houses generally were closed,  and the Union Jack was displayed from  the city flagpole. The Snowshoe mine  was closed for the day, and while operations were not discontinued at the  Granby mines, those who desired were  allowed to attend the Midway festivities.  Boundary Mining Notes.  Everything comfoitable and home:  like at the Cottage hotel, Jack Bower-;  rnan, proprietor.  Today as many men as were ever  employed at the Snowshoe are on the  paproll, the number being 80, and it  will probably be increased.  Application has been made for a  water record of ten inches by the Hall  Mining & Smelting Co., for a spring  on the Emma claim, in Summit camp.  Last Wednesday the long tunnel in  the Blue Jay, a couple of miles below  town reached the ledge, the ore canning copper'and gold. The tunnel is  now in 193 feet from tlie portal.  . The second 700 h. p. eleciiic motor  in the new compressor building of the  Granby Co. has been running this  week, and the final test of the entire  plain will be given in a day or two.  A gloiy hole is being opened up on  the Snowshoe, near the No. 2 spur,  from which shipments are being make  to the smellers. The ore is said to be  some of the best yet found on the prop,  erty.  The Sunset smelter at Boundary  Falls has blown in its second furnace,  and the Sunset, B, C mine, and Snow-  shoe, which lurmsh the tonnage for  this smelter, are consequently sending  out more ore.  For the third consecutive week the  Snowshoe has sent out i,6So tons 01  ore, the high water mark for that mine.  It has just begun shipments, however,  at the rate of 330 tons (n cars) per  day, or about 2,300 tons per week. A  tonnage of 500 tons could easily be  maintained now daily.  A find of good ore is reported from  the Edith L. fraction, adjoining the  Athelstan, in Wellington camp, and  owned by John Farrell. An upturned  tree exposed croppings, which, when  uncovered, are said to be over a hundred feel wide, all ore of a good grade,  averaging $11 '" gold and silver.

The trouble that Constable Darraugh  has been having for the last ten days or  more on account of supposed hog  cholera at a ranch two miles below  ibis city, was settled this week when  Government 'Veterinary Inspector Armstrong, of Nelson, inspected the place,  .ind pronounced the disease the real  thing and ordered the animals destroyed. -    ���       .  Less than a month ago Wm. Jenks  bought the ranch from George Rogers,  and shortly thereafter the hogs began  to die off. Before Dr. Armstrong pronounced on the case some 32 porkers  had succumbed to the disease, and  more were sick. He immediately ordered ihe balance of the hogs destioyed,  S5 head. This was done by shooting  last Wednesday, after which the carcases and the buildings were burned, a  thorough job being made of the effort  to stamp out the disease. Mr. Jenks  will receive one-third the value of the  hogs that were sick and two-thirds the  value of those that were shot, but he  will still be no small loser frcm the  epidemic. It is not known how the  disease was brought to this section.  While in the Boundary, Dr. Armstrong also-saw to the.destruction of 70  head of hogs owned by Frank Dixon,  who lives a mile below Greenwood on  Providence creek, the animals also being affected with the cholera. Altogether hogs valued at over $2,000 were  destioyed this week in the Boundary,  on account of this disease.  E. Spraggett, ol Grand Forks, who  has charge of government road and  trail work, in the Grand .Forks mining  division, was in the city late last week.  He has orders to do some work on the  Phoenix-Eholt load ami also on the  ro.ui from Phoenix to Grand Forks.  Five years ago on the 22nd of this  month the first actual development  work was done on the Knob Hill claim  in this camp. Wm. Yolen Williams,  the present superintendent of the Granby mines, had just been placed in charge  of the Miner-Graves syndicate properties, as they were then known, and  tramped through the dense forest  through two and a half feet of snow  from the Old Ironsides No. 1 shaft ���  then the only shaft���to the site of the  present'No. 1 Knob Hill tunnel. Mr.  Williams says that it seemingly, took a  couple of hours to make the trip, that  now can be made in ten minutes.  The fn-st men set at work on the  Knob Hill were George Cattnach and  John Pierce, who have been in the  employ of the company from that day  to this and are now holding responsible  positions as shift bosses. Pat Dermody  was then, as now, foreman.  For the start hand drilling was resorted to, but a few months later an air  line was run from the Old Ironsides  compressor, then considered quite a  pretentious piece of machinery, having  a capacity of five drills. In July, 1900,  the ten drill compressor for the Knob  Hill was installed at that mine, and  coupled up with the Old Ironsides  compressor, which had meantime been  increased to ten drills. There are still  four or five thousand tons of ore on the  original Knob Hill dump that was taken  out in development, which will be shipped in due time.  Shipments of ore from the Knob  Hill'mine, by years, to the end of last  month, were as follows: '    c  1900 tons   43'��4b'  1901...... .......

Tuesday afternoon fire broke out in-  the upper part of theStemwindr.r hotel,  but was extinguished before much damage was done. Both hose companies  responded quickly to the alarm, there  was plenty, of water, with a good head,  and in a 'short time the blaze was  drowned out. Many onlookers commented most favorably on the woik of  the volunteer fire laddies. The building was insured through the D. J.  Maiheson agency for $1,000 and the  contents foi $500. Mr. Mullin, one  of the owners, thinks the fue started  from a lighted pipe left in a room by a  lodger.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

Indeed,  it  may take place before these lines are  before the readers of the Pioneer. As  a successor, Hon. \V, W. B. Mclnnis,  the present  provincial ��� secretary, has  been  mentioned.    Mr.  Mclnnis  has  his enemies, as have all politicians,  but it is pretty safe to bet that  a gov  ernment under him would  be a vast  improvement over anything of the kind  that has been imposed upon the people of British Columbia for several  years, at least.  Times must he looking up in Cran-  biook, as the lleinld, one of the best  weeklies in East Kootenay, has recently come out in a new dress, which its  editor remarks was not secured at  Eaton's, either.  Hon. D. M. Eberts has been mixed  up in many a political scheme, but  evidently he is now winding up his  final act���sort of a farewell performance, with plenty ol comedy thrown  in.  A remarkable state of affairs obtains at Armstrong. Its weekly paper,  the Adveitiser, is a year old and does  not owe a dollar. Things are different  in most parts of British Columbia.  The natal day of Victoria the Good  was duly honored in the Kootenays,  by celebrations in Kaslo and Ymii,  and in the Boundary by one at Midway.  Are you ready for another election?  If signs count for anything these days,  it cannot be far off.

If the C. P. R. ever secured those  famous land grants, which have occasioned all the present turmoil at  Victoria, the company is legally entitled  to them. The testimony of Sir Thomas  Shaughnessy seems to point that way,  and also that some members of the  government have been ��� guilty - of the  promulgation of misleading statistics.  Whether the C. P. R. is entitled to  them in fact is another question.  That Rake-off���Three years ago  the "Canada for Canadians" smelters  treated Slocan ores foi $18.50 per ton.

STRICTLY   BUSINESS  ' The Rossland World indignantly  denies receiving hush . money from  gamblers, a6 testified to in the case in  Nelson last week, when all kinds of  Rossland dirty linen were washed in  court during the trial of the J. Bunt  Morgan libel suit. Incidentally the  World scores Mr. Justice Martin as  strongly as it dares to for his com  ments on theconnection of the Rossland dailies with the case.  The minister of customs still hangs  fire over the pcoposition to make Phce-  nix a sub-port of entry. It would not  cost the Dominion government anything to speak of, and would be of the  greatest convenience" to business men  here. How would the business men  of Ottawa like-to be forced to go to Toronto or Montreal to clear goods.  Last week the Rossland Miner lost  a libel suit, and two days later narrowly escaped another one by mixing up a  well-known business man of Phoenix  in a criminal cas_. Errors will creep  into the. best conducted newspapers,  but too much care cannot be exercised  in verifying stories like the one referred to, before printing them.  The mere mention of the Western  Federation of Miners to Mr. James  Dunsmuir appears to act like a red  flag on an infuriated bull. One ol  these days,'at the present rate, the  name of James Dunsmuir will have  the same effect on the average work-  ingman, if such is not already the  the case.  Some newspapeis reach many peo  pie who do not take advantage of ad  vertisements, but they are the excep  tion.  All advertising that is based on com  moii sense will prove, of value to the  man who places  it  where it  will  be  seen.  It is easier to talk to a thousand people through the columns of a newspaper than it is to get the undivided  attention of a dozen in a store.  All the business cannot be^corhered  by one man, but the one who advertises will come nearer cornering business than the other fellow.  There are many things which many  people would buy if they only knew  where they could buy them to advantage. If a merchant knows he ought  to tell what he knows.  The president of the C- P. R.  threatens to induce 'the" Dominion  government to disallow the famous  ���'Bill No. 16, revoking the crown grants  to valuable East Kootenay coal lands.  It would seem from this that Canada's  greatest railway believes itself to be the  whole thing at Ottawa as .well as at  Victoria.  It is a long time since eastern Cana  dian journals have had such an oppor-  tunily to comment adversely on British  Columbian legislative methods, as they  have today over the revelations recently made in connection with the land  scandal.  Won't Be Crushed.  To the Editor of the Pioneer:  Dear Sir���I sent you a poem last  week and asked you to publish it in  your paper. You declined, and returned it to me with the crushing reply that I was ho-poet, and that you  could "turn out better poetry out of a  sausage machine."

And with a reed I wrote upon the Band  . tbene words,  "Agnes, I love,thee I"  But the winds came mid thu waves rolled  mountains high,  And blotted 'out the fair impression.  Cruel waves; treacherous earids, fragile  reed;  No longer will I trust to thee.  But from the highest mountain peak I'll  nlurk'ihe talh-st pine.  And, (tipped in the crater of Vesuvius,  with it I will write  Upon the hij:h and  burnished  heavens  these  words:  "A Wipe Woman" is <h awing the largest  luidienees ever known.  And giving an  entertainment th.it will  take your breath avvav,  And I would  like to see any dog-gone  ��� wave wash that out."  Low Rates to Los Angeles.  The O.

A rich strike of over four feet'of  solid ore was uncovered, on the Kin-  press near Bear lake, Slocan, recently.  The Jumbo mine at Rossland, is to  have a tramway, to facilitate shipments,  which are to be started in the neai  future.

MmRAmmmwmmmmMwmwwm  It will do any man, opposed to unionism, good to read the testimony of  Samuel M.Robins.recenily given befon-  the Royal Labor Coinmission at Na-  uiiimo, a few days ago. Mr. Robins  wr.s supeiiutendent of the New Vancouver Coal Co. for 20 years, and in  that lime never had a stiike among his  miners. Once when trade was bad.  they gracefully submitted to a 20 pei  cen' reduction in wages, which were  later laised again. It is, indeed,, a  strong aigunient against the arbitrary  and unreasonable stand taken by James  Dunsmuir recently against his coal  miners. The story is worth reading  by any man, and can be found in lull  in last Sunday's  Nelson  Daily News.  OH  Mr. Robins always advised his men  to join the unions, because he really  believed it to l�� to their best interests  to do so. It would be a mighty good  thing for the coal mining industry of  fl)is province, and thus also for the  qu.irtz mining iudustiy, now so closely  allied, if there were more men of the  stamp of Mr, Robins in charge of our  coal mines. Mr. Robins did not continually move around with a chip on  his shoulder, looking lor trouble. On  the contrary, he had the men's, as well  as the company's, interests constantly  in.mind. His success was the best  evidence of the wisdom of his methods.  The following question was propounded to Sir Thomas Shaughnessy,  president of the C. P. R., recently at  Vancouvei:  "When1 does the C. P. R. intend to  complete the construction of the Columbia & Western road from Midway  to Pemictoii?"  Here is the answer that he is reported to have made to this'specific query:  "Just as soon as the company coin  mences to secure some returns from  the lines already in operation. The  company will not build another mile ol  new road in the province of British  Columbia until those already built are  paying. Our lines constructed into  the mining districts have proved very,  very disappointing."  ��M  Surely the astute president of tbe C.  P. R. must have been misquoted in  some way. The question referred di-  lectly to the extension of the present  line into the Boundary, and the answer  must have been along that line also, it  is reasonable to presume. If Sii  Thomas was properly quoted, he has  laid himself open to the severest criticism, as follows:  in  In the year 1901 the C. P. R. received from one company alone in the  Boundary���the Granby Consolidated  ���the neat little Sum of $368,000 for  freights only. These figures were made  public over a year ago, and have never  been questioned. The Boundary railway, something like 125 miles with  spurs, is said to have cost in round  numbers $4,000,000. It was bonded  for $35,000 per mile, and received a  rich subsidy from the government besides.  ���it  Let us delve into figures a little, and  see how the C.P.R. president's recent  statement tallies with the facts. One  mining company alone paid over$r,ooo  per day freight, Sundays included, to  1112 C.P.R. in 1901. That sum would  pay interest on the cost of construction  of the Boundary lailway for that year  at the rate of five per cent, and allow  enough over to pay for the cost of the  rolling stock. Then there are other  sources of income to be considered,  that from the other large and small  mining companies, general freight and  passenger service, express, telegraph  and mail services, etc.  Special Round Trip Rales.

If Mr. Shaughnessy expects any one  to believe such statements he will be  wise to quote some figures to bolster  them up, for in the light of these figures, here given, the Boundary railway  has undoubtedly been one of the b \st  paying pieces of road controlled by the  C. P R. Come again, Mr. Shaughnessy, and give your real reason lor not  building beyond Midway. It surely is  not because the Boundary branch is  such a poor paying piece of railway.  .1.  As the result of continuous woik  for over two years, says the Grand  hoiks News-Oazette, one of our local  smeltermen has invented a lahorsaving  system by which be can reduce the  labor.of a smeher 50 per cent. He is  protecting his invention by Canadian  and United States patents. In all  probability he will place the device  with the next company which builds a  smelter in this district. It is hoped  his invention will prove up to his expectation, thus making another i>feat  advance in reducing the cost of smelting the enormous bodies of low grade  ore, for which the Boundary countiy is  noted.
