BOUNDARY MINES AND MININO.  The Alabama group, near Nelson,  Wash., is reppited to have one of the  greatest showings on the reservation;  25 leet of $25 ore.      ;'  Woik was resumed last,Monday on  the sinking of the, main shaft in the  No. 7 inine, Central camp. It is ex  |iected to sink 200 feet more.  The;;, s'earn .shovel for use  oil   the  -KnoU-I^ll-ofeJbodies^'is-exi^^  arrive here in two or .three  weeks.   It  will be put to work as soon as possible  thereafter.  Work has. been started on the new  lesidence forSupt. Aslleyat the Snow-  shoe mine, l'he residence for Foreman  I'revorrow is completed, and lie will  move into it with his family at once.  The Hi itish. Columbia 'Copper Ctim-  pany is reported to have ordered a 90  horse power engine from the Jenckes'  Machine Company to run a large new  lockcrushei previously ordered for use  in the Mother Lode mine.  Ore shipments from the Granby  mines for the week reached the total ol  3,998 tons, while the amount run  through the Granby smelter for the  same time totals 4,122 tonp. The  total amount to date is 247,197 tons.  \V. W. Harris, a bqsiness man from  Norihpprt, was registered fit the  Dominion House early in the week.  He says the smelter stores have  practically ruined business at North-  port, and he is looking for a new loca:  tion.  Crosscutting lioth north and south  is ben g done at the 200 foot level ol  the Knob Hill mine, and drifting continues from both drifts .both east and  tt-est. The north crosscut will come  out on the surface near the lower glory  hole.  F. C. Bailey, who has been working  his claims in Providence camp, tlie  Excelsior,-Diamond and Alpine, .all  summer, has met with such encouragement in the development that he has  decided tp continue all winter. The  properties are located about a mile and  a half from Phoenix.  It has taken longer to get the  Golden Crown pumped out than was  anticipated, but Supt. Dtincanson  anticipates getting the water out to the  300-tY.ot level by tonight, and next  week a force of miners will be put on.  At present there are but six men employed.  All kinds of rumors are still afloat in  regard to the amalgamation of several  the big mines of the 'Boundary, but as  yet theie his been nothing definite re  ported. The names of the Mother  Lode, Brooklyn and Snowshoe , have  been mentioned in tliis connection, as  well as that of the B. C. nunc.  The station, 2o*;^o feet, has been  completed at thp 335 fpot level of the  Aetna, whjch is on the 200 foot level  of the Old Ironsides, with which it is  connected, Some drifting will be done  at this level, a huist will be put in  ater, and the shaft, which is eventually to be the main working shaft for the  Granby mines, will be deepened and  widened.    A lecture will be given by the Rev  J. M. Millar, M. A., next Wednesday  evening, 6th inst., under the  auspices  DROVE THE FIRST SPIKE.  Tracklnylnc Started oa Grand Forks Republic  !

WAS SECURED  City Has Marshall Lake Water  Record  FINE BUILDING LOTS  Golden Eagle  Addition.Now  . on the Market.  Prices Are Low and the Terms  Are Easy.  PAID CITY  OF  GREENWOOD $I,CGC  Latter Had Prior Claim, Bui Contented li  Sell lo Pboenlx for Ibe Above Consideration  A few days since Mayor Rnmbeigei  closed with the city of Gieenwood toi  the light lo take water fiom Marshall  lake for the use ol this city. The  ti.insaction cost  the  my of   Phoeniv.  $!,OOG.  It appeals that several jeais auo  the my of Gieenwood bought seveial  uater tights in that viunity, nnd  among them a water record 011 Provi  den(e cieek, which has one source  of supply in Marshall lake, < lose to  this city, and fiom which the domestic  suppl) tor our new watei system must  laigely be derived. Gieenwood is noi  now using the water, and may nevei  do so but )et it owned the light to do  so. Some thought that this city had  the light to take the water for munici  pal purposes uiespective of otheis, but  had the <ity ol Gieenwood at a latei  date seen fit to make use of the watei  fiom that source, ihe city of Phoenix  would probably ,have had some e\-  p nsive 'itigation on its hands, and   a  Foi thoce who wish to secure  lesi-  .dence lots that aie well located, eithei  for ��� investment  01   improvement,   an  oppoiiuniiy   is   now   ofTeied.       The  Golden Eagle addition to Phoenix has  recently been stii\eyed and platted in  to lots and blocks, and  placed on the  market by W  R  Williams  toi himseli  and othei owners    This is chone ies>  idence piopeity, being located   adjoin  ing  tbe  Old   Ironsides   subdivision,  just bai.k of and  to ' the ea<U ol   the  Dominiun   Copper   Co's  offices, e\  tending to the iaiUa> track.  There are only a limited number of  lots in the addition, the number being  35, and a.s the price has been placed  ���at. the Iqw figure.of- $200 per lot, they  will doubtless sell readily, especially as  the terms are easy. Intending purchasers should -'r apply at once to  Messrs. McArthur& Monk, who have  been appointed selling; agents, and  make selections without delay. It is  predicted that ih a short time the  Golden Eagle addition will lie a favorite residence portion of"Phoeni.\.   :  Messrs. McArtliur & Monk are also  authorized to state that they -will re  ceive offers for a few choice residence  lots located on Old Ironsides Avenue,  'from persons who wish to erect homes.  These lots are well situated on a  graded street, and easy terms.will be  made with purchasers who will build.  strong chance ot losing in the end  At any rate the promoters of the  present water s)stem, now being installed, did not caie to take any  chances in the matter. Negotiations  wcie opened with the city latheis 01  Gieenwood, and they offeied to dis  pose of the light to take watei fiom  the lake lo this city for the sum pi  $1,000. In Gieenwood theie were  those who were strongly opposed to  selling this watei light, but the council  men ot Gieenwood were men of their  word, and a lew days ago the $1,000  was paid ovei and the water light  seemed. An application has been  lormally made to the government  agent in the ��nanie .of- the city >cf  Phoenix foi this watei record, and it'is  only a queitiau oi time to secure the  neressaiy government consent.  Hy the new anangement the city of  Greenwood does not'waive its- right  to take such water from Providence  cieek as it mav be able to get in the  future, if it so desires, but merely allows this city the fiist ngnt to take  watei from Maishall lake. In fact it  is said that theie is a large supply to  Piovidence cieek below the lake, and  that should Gieenwood need it, a con-  siueiable amount ot watei can be ob  tained from that cieek.  Ma)01 Rnmbeigei and City Solicitor Reir ha\e spent a good deal of  time on this matter, in bunging it to  a luvoiable conclusion, ai.d there will  be no further difficulty in regard to  securing the right to whatever .water  there may be in the lake in question.

At comparing him were the follow-  inj* guesis and officials of the western  section ol the road: Major Cockburn,  V. C , Toionto; A.

DUNNE 010 NOT DO IT.  Conclnded   Not   to   Solicit   For  Orders  ia  Phoenix.  Willis Dunne, lepiesenting a firm  of Toionto stationers, was a visitor in  Phoenix this week. He came lor the  puipose of soliciting orders for printing  and stationeiy, but finally concluded  not to do so, and theiehy hangs a tale.  It appears that Mr. Dunne went to  Rossland last week for the same purpose, and started in t? clean up everything in sight in his line. He was  biought up with a lound turn in th,e  police couit, however, charged with  violating one ot the city's by-laws, and  fined $50 for the expeiience���which  fine he paid. Eaily this week he  ainved in Greenwood without any  previous announcement, and did some  business, it is stated. When he ar-  uved in PhoeuK his presence was  known, and the chief ol police notified.  Mr. Dunne at once consulted a solicitor,  whoadyised him in such, a manner  that he decided that he would net at-,  tempt lo do business in the dinner  bucket town ol the Boundary. The  laws ol the city of Phoenix and Greenwood, as well as most British Columbia municipalities, protect the local  merchants liom just such individuals  as Mi.   Dunne. f  ASKED EXTENSION ON BLUE BELL.  By next week Tiernay '*&' McPhail,  the C. P.

They consist of a loop aboul 1,500  feet long, which is.being put in to do  away with the^ switchback which has  been used since the linewas built a  couple of years ago. \Vhen completed  it will greatly facilitate the handling of  tiains on the Phoenix branch, and  will shorten the time between Eholt  and Phoenis. t      -^-     '  1 The new woik starts just belo*-- the  lower leg ol the Y, and comes around  by the Hartford Hotel, striking the  present line somewhat higher up.  l'he right of way is now cut out, and  the graders will be put on at once.  There is one rock cut about 22 feet  high, and it is thought the contract lor  grading will be done in about a month.  Some day early next week the ten-  car spur being put in at-Jthe Snowshoe  mine will be completed, giving that  property ample shipping facilities for  the [>resent. There is some rock work  here also. ��� " '    ,  On the Knob Hill spur extension  the work is also in an advanced state.

City Council Accepts Report of the Graveyard  Committee.  All the members of,the city council  were present at last Wednesday's meeting except Aldermen Morrin and M'c  Innis. The finance committee reported favorably on several small accounts,  amounting to $47,80, which were ordered paid.. The graveyard commit lee  icported they had,examined the proposed site about a mile below- the city, in  company with the city health officer  and Dr. lakes of Greenwood, and all  had agreed that it was quite suitable  for the purpose. The government  was, however, being < communicated  wiih in the matter. The report w.is  accepted.  Tlie board of public works was instructed to put a sidewalk on Knob  Hill avenue from the Bank block to  Second street, anil if sufficient funds  were available to lay a walk from Knob  Hill avenue to the new Maish block on  Victoria avenue.  Police Extension By-Law No. .19  was introduced and read the first time.  It was decided by the council to give  up the present city clerk's office and  hereafter have that official installed at  the city jail, which is owned by the  city, the meetings to hereafter lake-  place iu the jail, a part of which will  be arranged for the purpose.  A resolution prevailed that J. F.  Hemenway- be requested to deduct  road tax from the wa^es of the men  employed on the water and light sys  terns, after which the council adjourned till next Wednesday.  Want Sixty Days More (or tbe Pajment of  { ' $10,000.  Last I'luirsda) I" Waldo Murphy,  an attorney of�� Spoknue, arrived at  Eholt to cunsulfuith the oiigmal own-  eis of the Blue Bell mine in Summit  1 amp, lor the puipose 01 securing an  extension ol the payment due on bond  on Novembei ist. Ihe owners are  Messrs. Shaw, Stack and McDonald,  and the concern having the bond was  the Lake Shore and British Columbia  Copper ' Mining and Development  Company. ���-;  The property was bonded in April  last at $4,000. A cash payment of  $2,000 was made when the papers  weie drawn, another payment of $500  was made during the summer, and on  September 1st a tilird payment of  $5,000.was made. Another payment  of $10,00 was due oh November ist,  and the company wants a sixty-day extension on this.  Since the taking over ihe Blue Bell,  the company has expended $8,000  cash iii development, the princi|)al  feature of which has been the sinking  of a shaft some 135 feet with numerous crosscuts and drills. They pro-  pi se il the 'extension is granted, to proceed with development, and if .the  showing justifies the move, the property will be taken up. The Blue Bell  is a gold-copper proposition having a  considerable body of ore already developed. Among the men interested  in the company ate Pat Welch, the  well known railroad contractor, and  several men in Spokane and Wisconsin.  Ealllled to Fair RepreseeUlloo.  The Nelson Tribune 'keeps pegging  a\vay on tlje,redistribution question.  This is ao extract,,very much to the  point, from a recent editorial on the  subject:  " The white population of the province is in the neighborhood of  140,000, of which 36 per cent, live in  Kootenay and Yale districts. With  over one-third of the population, eight-  tanths of the mineral wealth, and fully  one-half of the the agricultural and  stock-raising resources of the province,  surely Kootenay and Yale are entitled  to fair representation in ihe legislative  assembly. They can get what they  are entitled to if only the members tor  these two districts staiiti up for their  rights, and do not fall down when the  party whip is ciacked by a coast  politician."  Will Move Next Week.  Some time   early  next   week  the  Hunter Kendrick Co., Ltd., will move,  into their new and most commodious,  storeroom in the new Bank, block, now  nearly completed. This week Smith  Bros,, the contractors, having been  crowding the,work as fast as possible,  night and day, and the concern when  settled will have one of the largest and  finest stores in the interior of British  Columbia. For the last month the  firm report business to have - been  excellent. '..'.������;  No Truth In II.  The following paragraph appeared  in Thursday's Nelson Tribune, a.s correspondence from Greenwood:  "The city council of Phoenix is'  combining the office of chief of police  and chief of the fire department. Both  chiefs have been given a month's  notice. Appointment to the dual office  will be made later on."  This is news to Phoenicians, city  council and all. The chief of the .lire  department, which is purely a volunteer organization, is J. F. Hemenway,  and he knows no more about it than  Mr. Flood, the acting chief of police.  The fire chief is not a salaried officer.  Latest Arrivals in Phoenix.  Born���to the wife of Isaac Crawford,  Brooklyn avenue, October 24th, a son.  Born���to the wife of.

Probably Mr.  Dunsmuir got tired of waiting, and  concluded, aftei all. that he wanted  his money. Poisons who puichase  shares in a mortgaged mine must expect lo take just such chances as this.  '       DON'T TALK HARD TIMES.  In every community  there are a  certain .number of pessimistic men who  scarcely ever, under any circumstances,  look on.the.bright side of things,  but  ���-.seem to take a ghoulish glee in  look-  ' ing<and talking lugubriously.   If there  "'axe^ny^such  in  the Boundary,  we  ^recommend to them a peiusal of, the  .fi following from ,the November  number  ��Jof Success:  ���' "T never knew a man to be successor who was   always   talking  about  ��� .; business.���being ,bad.

It  \nis^saiatural to try to avoid disagreeable, unpleasant people, 'as it is to try  to escape/i;om the clouds and shadows  ,into the sunlight."  Wails are still coming fiom over the  water and Eastern Canada about the  honible mining laws of Biitish Columbia. It is noticeable, however, just  the same, that the mining concents in  the best general standing, opciating in  this province, have adjusted them  selves to the laws, and are going about  the legitimate business of minin--in  a legitimate manner, and in such n  way that promises well for the shareholders.

At midnight, tonight the great Pan-American exposition, at Buffalo,' that  '1 has-entaileda'loss of two or three  t* million dollars, it is said, will ciose its  f'doors.  < j- H. -Turner, the new-agent general  for British Columbia at London, expects to arrive at his destination today.  Mr, Turner will make a worthy repre  . sentatiye of this province.  . British Columbia placer mines are  once .more coining to - the front, and  this time it is in the Horsefly district,  north of Ashcroft, where it is reported  rich ground has been found.  . Czplgosz the murderer of President  McKinley, expiated his fiendish crime  at Auburn, New, York, last Tuesday  ��� and the-whole woild looked on  with  hearty approval, to put it mildly.

STRICTLY    BUSINESS.  Poor salesmen can thwart the best  advertising.  Advertising is often the advance  agent of prosperity.  Many a man gets the living he  thinks the world owes him by advertising for it.  Patience is frequently lauded to the  skies, but tenacity in advertising always gets' there.  There's no half-way work about this  subject of advertising. In order to  win you must be at it early and late.  , lie who doesn't read advertisements  is blind. He who doesn't hear advertisements is deaf. He who isi.'t  reached by advertising is blind and  deaf.  0'1'he constant advertiser has this  advantage over the occasional one:  He has not dropped the thread of his  discourse and does not have to pick  it up.  The "man who does not advertise"  is becoming larer every day. No one  ever appears to succeed in rinding him  except the specialist who goes into a  locality with a "wiite-up" scheme.  The merchant who thinks he can't  write good advertisements is piobablj  one who doesn't often try. The lesult  is worth the effort and it pays to  struggle for better advertising to insure  better returns.    .  Many. advertising failures result  from the assumption that the reading  public is better informed than it really  is���about the article advertised. Always work in points which the public  should know about, if such a thing is  possible.  - The man who is misusing advertising space is not only wasting money  but is throwing away opportunity. Il  he used to the best possible advantage  the space he buys and pays for in a  paper or any other field, he would be  adding to the value of his business as  well as getting a direct return from the  investment.  Sell's Little Game.  The Boundary papers are worried  over some pleasant statements concerning the district which have of late  appeared in the Mining Review of  Ottawa. When the Boundary people  understand Mr, Bell's little game as  well as we do in Rossland, they will  smile at his efforts to help one gnd of  Canada along by damning the other.  ���Rossland World,  Electric drills are now in use at  Payne mine, Sandon.  Rossland ore shipments last week  amounted to 5,650 tons.  Oie shipments thiough Slocan City  last week totalled 289 tons.  The Slocan Star, at Sandon, is turning out ore at the rate of two cars a  day.  Seven hundred ions of ore weie  shipped to Kaslo from the Slocan last  week.  Over 2,000 miners have been laid  off for two weeks ii' the Boston and  Montana Co.'s mines at Butte. j  One ot the coppei   furnaces  of the |  Trail smelter has been closed, but  an  additional lead luinace has been blown  in.  The people who are putting in a  smelter at Mansville, in East Kootenay, have el ready commenced work  on it.  The Sandon com t of revision has  just completed its woik and tlie figures  aie: Laud, $106,820;buildings,$131,-  440: total, $238,260.  Oie is being packed down to Bear  lake by the owneis of the Silver Glance  group. This ore is said lo be worth  ovei two dollais a pound.  One bundled thousand dollars will  be asked of Congress to pay the  physicians who caied for William  McKinley in his Lite illness.  The Republic Miner estimates the  ore pioduction of Republic camp to  date at something like 51,000 ions,  with a value of almost $1,500,000.  The city of -Vet non has received a  consignment of about 1,000 shade  trees, which will lie,planted along the  stieets an J add much to the appeal-  anceol" the town.  The retail dealers of a  ntimbei   ol  Kootenay towns have combined against ]  cei tain wholesalers in Nelson, who aie  alleged to have been cutting  into  the  retail business in the vaiious camps.  It is announced in the curient issue  of the B. C. Ciazette that examinations  tor efficiency in the piactice of assaj-  ing will be held ''in the laboratoiy of  the buieau of mines, Victoria, on Nov.  iS, 1901, and on such following days  as may be found necessary.  The Canadian Pacific railroad will  try an experiment in irrigation between  Medicine Hat and Calgary. There  are 3,000,000 acies of arid land, which  experts say can easily be reclaimed,  and the road will make the test on  300,000 acres ol the land. '  The Grand Forks Board of Trade is  in receipt of a letter from H. E. Mc-  donnoll, general freight agent for the  C. P. R., at Nelson, promising to reduce the rates on all produce, including  flour, oatmeal and hay, to that city;  such reduction to take effect on  November 15th.  A vein of molybdenite apparently  running veiy high in molybdenum,  from tests made by local chemists,  has been discoveied and located by-  James Stein, an engineer on the Nelson-  Robson railway. The vein is three  leet in width and outciops in the  channel of the river at Kootenay  crossing.  , Should Scad Ore Exhibit.  H. E. Macdonell, general fieight  agent of. the C. P. R , at Nelson, has  written to ihe secretary of the Phoenix,  board ot tiade notifying him of the  lact that a mining exposition is to be  held in the Grahd Central Palace in  New York, and suggesting that the  local board of trade should communi  cate with Allan S. Williams, manager of  the exposition, with a view to securing  a space for an exhibit of ores from  this district. The exposition is lo be  held from December 3rd to 18th, inclusive, and will give an opportunity  lor claim owneis to come in touch with  capital.  People ia Yale and Cariboo.

Bell  Mr. Bell has plenty of ability but also  stiong prejudices. Prejudice is a bad  weakness in a newspaper man. Mi.  Bell believed that the Nova Scotia  mines weie all right and the B. C.  mines all wiong and he never lost an  opportunity to attack mine- and mining companies in B. C. It is an eas)  matt :r to criticize a mining company  and the bigger the company the  stronger can' the criticism be made.  Mr. Bell's latest target is the Gianby  Consolidated company. His criticism  is fully answeied by E. Jacobs.���  Greenwood Times.  Foreclosing on tbe Noble F ve.

Any  millions of dollars have been lost  railroads, farm mortgages, eastern industrial and building associations, the  American mining industry steadily  advances, making enormous profits for  its supporters, building great states and  cities, and points with pride to the  American possession of 253 mines that  ^luiffepaid in dividends over $625,-  600,000.  Iti '.mining i vestments extremely  large amounts are not necessaiy to  make one successful/for the man of  moderate means, properly advised,  has opportunities of'quickly' doubling  his capital/Under incorporation great  achievements are made possible;  through combining limited sums of  thousands, thus equaling the capital of  the individual millionaires, making  possible gigantic undertakings that are  productive'of enormous revenue. The  dollar of ihe man of moderate means  is equally as powerful as the dollar of  the money king. ; Both serve their  purpose; both are entitled to their  proportioiKite profits.  In legitimate mining a twenty-five  (>er cent, dividend is not considered  startling, ind the mining interests of  the west are willing 16 pay that interest  for the use' of money, for, by the aid  of?capital they can open up tremendous  ore bodies that lead to still greater  .fortunes.' The employment of$io,ooo  iii mining is the equivalent of $40,000  in most any other branch of industry.  . For years the wondrous profits of  the metal industries have been whispered among investors, who were  apparently afraid to let their neighbors  know they were.identified with mining,  but the recent efforts of the financial  czars of the world in forming combinations to control, first the market of the  miners throuuh the "smelting trust"  and then the mines through the  "An algamated Copper trust," have  opened the> eyes of the conservative  and modern investors, and they are  making efforts to obtain their share of  the metallic wealth which nature has  spread so lavishly  i" and diverting the trade into Seattle. ,.-  Jlowever, the Similkameen may be  congratulated upon the prospects of  early railway communication with some  place, --although'" preferring that that  place should be Vancouver.���Vancouver World.

There is no use discussiiij* the advisability of advertising. That -qesstion  has been settled long ago. The only  question is how to best accomplish that  which 'is proposed by the business  man. The advertiser who has an  honest argument to make will be able  to talk in a straightferward manner to  his clientage and will not fail to convince that what he has to offer is of  advantage to them. The reputation'  for honesty should not be trifled with  by use of bombastic assertions or by  resorting to questionable methods:  Advertising, should be made to  strengthen the confidence already reposed in "an .'establishment by the  people and can be made a valuable  leverage with which to lift the present  prosperous establishment into a greater  degree of prosperity, and when the  circle of acquaintances who enjoy  trading with an honest man where they  can depend on getting honest values.  -7���Advertising World. .

The Victoria Colonist states that a  syndicate composed of British capitalists of high standing in the financial  world of London is prepaied to submit an offer to the:provincial government for the early, construction of the  Coast-Kootenay railway 1'  The syndicate is possessed of means  to undertake the work and push it to  completion as fast as riien and money  can accomplish the building of the  road, but it is understood that certain  conditions in the loan act passed at  ihe last session are unsatisfactory, and  before signing a contract it would ask  that these be modified.  The objections, it is stated, are to  the clause governing tlie peicentage of  gross earnings payable by the company  to the province, which is considered  too stringent, the members of the  syndicate holding the view that the  percentage should be paid out of the  net earnings aftei all charges olY management and maintenance- were  deducted.
