Morrison, of Grand Forks,  one of the owners of the-big Morrison-  Anderson block, now being erected in  Phoenix, arrived in town yesterday.  Mr. MoiYson is interested in the  Athelstan mine in Wellington camp,  and gave the Pioneer some interesting details about that steadily shipping  property.  Development on the Atlieistan is  now going on in the drift at the 100-  foot level, while the ore is being sloped'at the 45-foot level. A contract is  now being carried out with the Trail  smelter to furnish i.ooo tons of ore,  and Fisher & Gill, have secured the  contract for hauling the ore to the  Winnipeg spur, a distance of one mile.  A most favorable freight and treatment  rate was secured from the smelter, and  the ore runs in the .neighborhood 'of  $16 per.ton. ;  Shipments from the Athelstan now-  average nearly a car a day, or ido  tons: and upward weekly. Superintendent Oxley now has a force of 20 men,  all told, at work. Thus far development has been done to the extent of  730 feet, and when it reaches a total  of 1,000 feet the C. ':1\ K. has agreed  to put in a spur. In the spring it is  the intention to install an air compressor,'at present all drilling being  done by hand.

When the new  offices are ready, in a short time, the old  log building, close to the Old Ironsides  mine, which has been used as headquarters for three or four years, will be  given over for assaying and other purposes.  As the door is entered to the new  offices, Assistant Treasurer Hemen-  way's desk will be found at the -left,  where also Superintendent Williams  can be seen when in town.

When ready for occupancy, Mr.  Hemenway and bis staff will have  commodious nnd comfortable quarters,  which will be a great improvement on  those formerly used.  Relaying Water Pipes.  This week George Rumberger has  had a force of men. at work relaying  the pipes in his water system in the  lower'part of. town. When ' first' put  down last year the pipes were not laid  deep enough, and now they are two  feet dee[>cr, as a protection against  freezing up. The pipes of the system  on Phoenix street, Brooklyn avenue  and Dominion aveuue are being treated  in this way.  Three prominent funis i.i Grecn-  wood are about to consolidate, according to circulars sent out. The linns  are the Russell Hardware Co., W. M.  Law & Co. and Cnulfield & l.amont.

This, however, is just what is being done today  iiv-Phdenix;'-'--',/���-���'*"'"������". ������;,-���-'.  A Pioneer representative went up  on the Knob Hill this week to note  what was going on in this ore quarry,  and he found James Punch in charge.  It appears that the ore on tiie surface  of the Knob Hill has been found of  great value for fluxing purposes. Consequently While thousands of tons have  been and are being extracted from the  mine proper each week and sent down  the hill to the syndicate's smelter at  Grand Forks, a force of men has been  at work on the surface, about 200  yards above ibe compressor house. I  This-work has iv.'iv been going on for  some weeks, and something like a couple of thousand tons of ore have been  sent out.  Tbe work on this surface ore Was  started at a point near the air shaft;  the ore is dumped into this shaft,  some 140 feet in depth, and then  hauled through the main tunnel of the  mine on the tramway to the ore bunkers. The large snace from which ore  has been taken out already is termed  by the employees the "Glory Hole"���  perhaps because it is such a narrow,  stippery path that leads up to it. At  first the work was done by hand drillers, but a pipe line was soon laid up  from the Knob Hill compressor, and  now two air drills are used in breaking  down the ore. An electric light line  has also been strung to the work, so  that double shifts could be utilized.  Rails are being laid for the use of cars  in the "Glory Hole." Mr. Punch has  had a force of 14 men on the work,  and it has been no trouble to supply  whatever ore of this character was  needed.  This week the new sidewalk,  netting Knob iiill avenue and  minion avenue, was laid. It is  feet wice, and   if kept clear of  con-  l)o-  four  snow  ist.  this winter will lie of no little convenience to citizens generally. The walk  is laid near the "Id log school house.  THE  ....BUILDING  To be erected on Corner of Old Ironsides Ave. and  First St., opposite the Graves-Williams building will' contain four stores on First St. and  two on Ironsides Ave., and offices on upper  floor: This building will be ready for occupancy on or about Dec. 1st. I am ready to  Rent or Lease stores or offices in this building.   For Terms Apply to   Acting on the request of several  members of the Phoenix Board pf  Trade, the secretary called a meeting  of that body 'last .Monday evening,  which was held at the Butte hotel.  President Rumberger occupied the  chair, and the attendance was large.'  One special object of the meeting was  lo 'protest to the government against  the order recently issued by Constable  Dinsmore, of Grand; Forks, the new-  road superintendent, cutting down the  amount to be spent on the trail from  Phoenix to White's camp from $1,000  ���to $700.  A number of speeches were made  by members, and several stated that  W. J; Sanders, in.charge of the work,  had received orders from Mr., Dinsmore to the above effect. Y No explanation was forthcoming as to why Mr.  Dinsmore had reduced the amount allowed by the provincial government in  the estimates, although he. is understood to be dissatisfied with the way  the work has ' been done; thus far.  After discussing the'subjectj the secretary was instructed to send the following telegram to the minister of lands  and works at'Victoria;  Phoenix, I). C, Oct. 29,1900.  Hon. AV. C. Wells,'  Victoria, Ii. C  One thousand dollars appropriated Tor trail to  White's campr but Constable I'iusinore refuses  to spend more' than seven hundred. This, will  leave trail unfinished in middle of woods, quite  useless. 1'hoenix Board of Trade petitions you  to complete trail, which is important to district,'  and strongl}' protes'. against interference cl  subordinate officials.  G. w. Rumberger, Pkbs.  W. Ii. Wii-Lcox, sec'  The secretary was also instructed  to communicate with the minister of  land and works, calling attention to  hhe'needless'delay" iir beginning work  on the wagon road from Phoenix to  Summit camp, for which an appropriation of $2,500 was made by the legislature.  A motion was made by Messrs. Kerr  and Hemenway, and carried that the  secretary write to the minister of customs, to J. S. Clute, inspector of customs, and to the liberal candidate for  this constituency, urging the appointment of a customs and inland revenue  officer for Phoenix.  It is well known that such is the  intention of the Dominion government, but the matter seems to have  been lost in the endless red tape which  must first be unwound. The object  of the motion is to hasten matters il  possible, for the relief of the business  men of Phoenix.  It was also decided, after discussion on a motion made by Messrs.  Kerr and Sears, that the secretary  write to Manager R. Marpole, of the  C. P. R., at Vancouver, urging the  need of supplying a passenger service  over the C. P. R. from Eholt to  Phoenix.  The matter of a graveyard was  brought up, but it was decided that  such a matter was more within the  province of the new city council, and  it was accordingly left with those gentlemen to deal with.  Mr.   Dinsmore's Side.  Mr. Dinsmore was in town yesterday, and stated that he had no intention of stopping work on the trail, but  that he thought $700 should be  sufficient to put it thiough. In any  event, he would see it finished though  he believed money had been wasted.  He also said that he was only waiting  to hear from the government engineer,  Mr. Gamble, at Victoria, to begin  work on the Summit wagon" road. Mr.  I Jinsniore went out on the White's camp  trail with Mr. Sanders, the foreman,  yesterday.  nuance at Log Building Steadily I-screas.  inj.  Class" V.

At first the ore was sent out at the  I rate of 150 V,: ",daily, from July 1 1 to August 24; on the latter date it  I was increased to1,500 ions, or 10 cars per day, which was kept   till  Octo-  of the  AGENT.  Soon   Have Skating Rink.  This week an arrangement was made  with William Drcver, by which he will  erect a skating rink on the site of the  tennis court.

EDITORIAL COMMENTS,  With   a foot of  looks as though winter  stay.  snow  already,  bad  come  38  1U1  19  26  20  27  21  2S  22  29  23  30  24  SUBORDINATE OFFICIALS INTERFERE.  In the estimates brought do-vn by  the government last summer were two  items of no little imj-ortance to Phoe-  niv. These were $1,000 for a tiail  - from Phoeiii"- to White's, camp and  $2,500 for a wagon road from Phoeni.\  lo Summit camp.  After the session Gold Commissioner  Kirkup, of Rosslana, who has charge  of government expenditures in this  riding, was icpeatedly "advised that  winter began early here, and that  prompt action would be necessary il  ,these public works weie to be completed, this year. Notwithstanding  this, nothing but surveying for the  Summit wagon road has been done to  ��� date.  In regard to the   trail   to   White'.*"  camp, nine men have been working on  it, and now, before it is  completed,  Constable I. A. J)insmore, of Grand  l-'orks, who   was   recently   appointed  "-road superintendent for  this  section,  takes it upon himself to order the work  stopped when $700 has been spent.  -   In other words, although 'the govern-  ���   uient specifically appropriated $1,000  , lor this work,' Mr.  Dinsmore,  thinks  $700 is sufficient,' although this leaves  , the end of the trail somewhere out' in  the woods���utterly useless to any and  'a"-1 ' \,,:. i  .:'; .-a\.     . :  .  By what'right subordinate officials  ' assumc^authority to change orders from  the"' government,   Joes,   not appear,  l' and no adequate explanation is forthcoming as to why the Summit wagon  '". road was delayed till winter is upon  us. It is no excuse, if Mr. Dinsmore  is, as he claims, dissatisfied with work  already done around here. This town  does not have to bear the brunt oi  I bis personal squabbles.  It was quite appropriate  that the  > Thoenix Koard of Trade telegraphed an  emphatic protest to fhe Minister of  I^ands and Works, at Victoria, at the  . way public works were being carried  on in this locality.  Coast journals are pay ing an increasing amount of at'ention to the mining  sections. They know where the chiet  wealth of the province is obtained.  : When Times are Good,  A correspondent of The London  Times explains why times are good in  Canada:  "The sensational discoveries of gold  in the Klondike, the equally imjiortant  though more slowly develojied discov-  ereries of go|d? silver, a,ml coal,'in the  Kootenay, Cariboo, and Crow's Nest  District of 1'iitisli Columbia, the improvements of agricultuial conditions  in the Northwest, the arrival of manufacturing actixity tlnoiighotit the  Eastern Provinces, ha|| all contributed  to pioduce a general feeling of buoy-  ante and confidence i.i the futme."  So gi eat was the success attending  the mineial exhibit at the exposition!  held in Spokane that there is a strong  inclination among the mining' men ot  that city toward holding an exposition  during the season of 1901 that shall  be exclusively an exposition for mines  and minerals of the nortl'west. The  prospect now is that the exposition is  a surety. It would undoubtedly attract an increased number' of those  now interested or willing to become  interested in mining. What thecoun-  ny needs is plenty of capital, and in  no other way can it be moie quickly  atli acted.  ALDHAT1& BLUNT,  -Mine Surveyors,"  AND DRAUOlliSMr.N.  Thokni.x, IJ. C.  H. S. CAVI.KV. W.li.

At last the Dominion authorities  have succeeded in securing the acquiescence of the mother country to  the establishment of a mint in Canada.  This is the announcement recently  made by Hon. W.S. Fielding, minister  of finance at Ottawa.  This most important step has been  talked of for the last five years but is  only just taking definite shape. Although many may think 'Ottawa the  * jiroper place for such an institution,  - the vast bulk of gold and silver produced in the Dominion comes from  the far west and northwest. Therefore it may be that British Columbia  will secure the institution when established.  Contrary to general belief this will  rot be the fiist mint in  Canada.    In  1858, consequent upon the finding 01"  ������old on the Eraser,  there was a stam-  jiede to British Columbia,  and a demand was made for a mint   Tin's was  established   at New  U'e- tminster  in  May, 1862, and a few geld coins were  Struck off.    It v as then  claimed  the  mint cid not pay, so it was closed.  Conditions now/however, are different.  Millions in gold, silver and copper are  taken out of the province yearly, and  ���iucli an institution would in reality fill  & long felt waftt.  It is because the ballot is absolutely  see-ret that so many opposition candidates will be wondering on November  8th what struck them.���World.

This defence  very naturally exonerated the clergyman from all blame.  On The RfEervatlon.  ���   A. HY Fisher, of NeNon; gives the  following interesting details regarding  the reservation opening:.,'  "l'he best part of, the newly opened  country from a ranching standpoint is  the south end, comprising a comparatively   narrow   strip   .between  ('rand  Forks and Republic, /{'he choice of  this section is (��b'out Curlew lake, and  over half of tliis district  was located  by quart?, and  placer   patents before  the reservation was opened for settlement by homesteaders.. Colors of gold  can be found almost everywhere, and  with this as an excuse people staked  the country for placer claims,  hoping  to hold the land after the date of the  opening.    After Curlew lake, the most  desirable districts were about Curlew,  Toroda and  Myers  creeks ��� and  the  section of the Okanogan valley included in  the  reservation.     About   the  creeks the land is gently  rolling and  well watered naturally with lots of fine  bottom and farming   land.     In the  Okanogan  section' the land  Is  even  richei,   but   requires .irrigation' and  water is somewhat scarce.    Outside of  these districts the land is only  medium grade or suitable for grazing and  mineral'purposes.   There arc several  towns in the new   country,   but  only  one boom  town,   Kipling,   where   a  weekly paper, the   .Sun,   was started  three minutes   after   the reservation  was opened, on the 1 oil).

The following a,,;(.|e   is  fr<)|n  the  last issue of the Grand Forks Gazette:  Kumor has ii that some more big  Boundary properties are to resume  active operations on an extensive scale  in the not far distant future. The  properties in question are the Brooklyn  Stem winder .and. other holdings of the  Dominion Copper Company at Phoenix, and it is.reported on'apparently  good authority that the work of developing the mines fully will be prosecuted at once.  The Brooklyn and Stemwinder have  been extensively opened up, the latter  only a year or so ago having been the  best developed-property in the Boundary. Both have large ore bodies  blocked out ready for sloping and will  probably enter the shipping list as soon  as work is resumed.  Mackenzie, of the Mackenzie and  Mann outfit, and now head of the Dominion Copper Company, was on the  coast recently on business and had intended coming into the Boundary on  his way home, but was subdently called  cast and had to postpone bis visit.,  There is ample room in the properties of the Dominion Copper Company for the employment of between  200 and 300 men and their prospective starting up will be good news to  mining men all over the Boundary.  Slaked 20 years Ago,  the Monachee mine, on Monachee  mountain, a few miles from Midwnv,'  which was recently sold to R. Dunsmuir and P. K. Rithet, of Victoria, is  one of the oldest locations in this section. It was staked 20 years ago and  crown-granted about 14 years ago. It  has a strong continuous ledge averaging $10 to $15 in free milling pre on  the eastern claims of the gro'up and  almost any,amount on the western end,  where the ledge carries free gold. An  old-fashioned mill was placed on the  group, some time ago, and this has  proved one of the greatest, drawbacks  to the .property, as the plant would not  save values, 'l'he owners have planned  an extensive [programme of work, including the erection of a modem stamp  mill.  1     , For Rent.

A private dispatcii received at Grand  Forks recently conveyed the intelligence that the Dominion . government  will shortly announce the disallowance  of an act passed by the British Columbia legislature at its last session incorporating the Grand Forks ���& Kettle  River Railroad Company. This would  be following the precedent established  nearly ten years ago when the federal  authorities vetoed a measure of the  Manitoba legislature authorizing the  extension of the Northern Pacific railroad into Manitoba.  The ground taken by the Dominion  Record Shipmeut From Phoenix.  One day last week the output of the  Ironsides and Knob Hill mines was no  less than a thousand tons, or as much  as the Center Star and LeRoi arc doing between them. 'That,.I take it, is  a fairly creditable accomplishment' for  so young a productive camp as Phoenix. But comparisons between Rossland and Boundary are after all' hardly  just, conditions being so "entirely  different, though at the same time ibr  emphasis'sake the comparison serves  a purpose. As a matter of fact the  possible ore production of the Knob  Hill and Ironsides is only limited by  the number of men. employed to get  the ore out, and by the capacity of the  smelters that treat it. The ore bodies  are so enormous, that if it is true, as  asserted, that the metallurgicalproblem  has been successfully solved, these two  properties will very soon take rank  among the'greatest'copper, mines of  tbe American continent, or of the world  for that matter.���Colonist,  Phoenix Mail Service.

Because he is not pledged to  either of the old parties and will be  entirely free to act for the benefit of his  constituents.  3.

MUSTARD QUA  ���LINIMENT,���  Is Already the Second Camp in Ore Shipments  in British Columbia.  I--OR SAM* O.M,Y DV  The following facts about Phoenix tell rhe story of what capital has already accomplished in the chief  mining camp of the Boundary. There are yet many promising prospects well worthy of business like  exploitation.  Phoenix itself and the camps to which it is the nearest banking and business  point, are now shipping 4,500 tons of gold-copper ore per week, or 225,000 tons  per year.  The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides, situated iu the very heart of the town, are  alone shipping 600 tons daily, or 4,200 tons per week.  The B. C. mine is shipping 150 tons daily, or over 1,000 tons weekly.  Other properties, such as the Golden Crowu, Winnipeg, Athelstan, etc., are  shipping not less than 50 tons per day, or 350 tons per week.  The ore shipments from Phoenix alone far exceed the combined output of all  other mining camps of British Columbia, outside of Rossland.  Yet Phoenix is only in its earliest infancy.
