Ore  Shipped   to the  Smelter  This Week.  On or about the ist of December,  the smelter of the Dominion Copper  Co., at Boundary Falls, will be blown  in once more, for a steady run.  Last week Supt. Thomas placed an  order with the Boundary Iron Works,  at Grand Forks, for additional slag  .pots, which will he cast and turned  out_as soon as practicable.  On Sunday last the first ore was  sent out over the C.P.R. from the  Brooklyn mine by the present management of the Dominion Copper Co. It  consisted of five cars, or about 150  tons, and several similarly sized lots  have been sent out since. May 17th  was the date of the last previous ore  shipment fiom this mine. This week's  shipments were-largely to make room  in thebunkers for ore being taken out  of the Brooklyn in development.  As previously stated, the Dominion  Copper Co. has placed an order for an  air compressor, which will be installed  at the Rawhide mine. It will be of  Ingersoll-Sargent type and will be furnished by the.Aliis-Chaltners-BulIock,  Ltd., of Montreal. Quick delivery to  the C.P.R. was promised, and the machine is understood to be now enroute  to Phoenix. The installation of this  compressor���which will be operated  by electric power from Cascade���will  furnish something heretofore lacking  at the Rawhide, cheap power for rock  drilling purposes.  '.*.AVSIcri the ,NIontreat & Boston Consolidated-blew out the Boundary-Falls  smirlterin May, 17 cars of coke were  in the yards or enroute from Fernie,  that -were never taken l>y the o'.d company. It was finally unloaded at  Grecnwoo.i, charges against it piled  up, and it was advertised to be sold at  auction. Arrangement-; were ultimately made, however, with the Dominion Copper Co. to purchase the  coke.  IS VERY SILLY  STATE OF AFFAIRS  C.P.  R, NOW HAS  IT'S RAILS DOWN  Mail  Comment   on   Phoenix  Service.  The fight taken up by the Pioneer,  for "a mail service to Phoenix on the  Great Northern, is beninning to attract  attention on the outside���as well il  might, after eight months' neglect by  the postoffice department at Ottawa.  The Nelson Daily News in its issue of  last Wednesday had the folic wing on  the subject:  "Notwithstanding all the outcry tha't  has 'been made in months past, it ap  pears that Phoenix ia still discriminated  against in the matter of prompt delivery of -mail. The Phoenix Pioneer  points out that nun. lor I'huenix liom  the United States comes into Grand  Forks on the Great Northern train and  is thrown of!" there lo be brought up  the following-day hy the C.P.R., although the Great Northern train goes  straight through to Phoenix. This appears to be a very silly state of affairs.  The chiel difficulty with regard to the  interior mail service we think is still to  be found in the fact that there is no  postoffice inspector resident in Kootenay Inspector Greenfield is a hard  working painstaking official, but he has  more to attend to than can efficiently  be handled by one man, and naturally  the interests of the Kootenays suffer.  There should be some very vigorous  representations made to the new postmaster-general by W. A. Galliher and  Duncan Ross. If these gentlemen  inake'up'-their minds to have fair play  for their, respective constituencies in  the matter of mail services, there is  very little room for doubt that they  can attain their end."  As ihe News states, Inspector Greenfield is a hard working man, and has  more than he can attend to. It is,  however, entirely the fault of the officials at Ottawa that Phoenix is being  discriminated against regarding mail  service. They have been repeatedly  approached in the matter, .but merely  reply that it is still "under consideration"���as it has been for some eighi  months.   Cr'ahbrook's first city election will  occur November zoth, the nominations  to be held November 1.5th.  To Hold Right of Way Near  Midway.  The recent activity of the C.P.R. in  building at least sbthe of its new line  west of Midway now seems to be explained. Some four miles west of that  town the"V., V. & E. line crosses the  proposed C.P.R. line, and this matter  comes up in court in Vancouver on  Nov. 4th on expropriation proceedings.  Then nearer Midway, on the Meyer-  hoft" ranch, the Midway & Vernon line  also crosses the C.P.R. right of way.  So the C.P.R. rushed some 50 men  down there under W P. Tiernay, and  threw up a grade iii short time. This  week they began the work of laying  rails across the disputed land, as possession is supposed to give no little advantage in a dispute of this kind. Tht  Midway & Vernon officials . were not  idle, however, and last.week bought or  secured an option on the entire Meyer-  hoff ranch. Both gangs of workmen  came together early this week, but  there was no blood spilled, and the C.  P. R., under the able generalship of  Supt. J. S. Lawrence, assisted by Engineer R. A. Bainbridge, so far hold  the fort, and will probably run flat  cars out on the new track.  So far honors have been with the C.  P. R., but it is hardly likely that the  tactic:; of that company to obstruct the  other lines will have effect for any great  length of time. While it was given  out that it was'the intention to build  on west into the Similkameen, no  statement was made as to whether it  would be done in this century or in  the next When seen by the Pioneer  man Thursday,'-Mr.. Lawrence was as  talkative as an oyster, and did not care  what the newspapers said.  1905  V  ��� .J  No. 52.  lFl��R  Sport  Has Half a   Hundred  Champions. '���  Tournament Prises Now On  Exhibition.  TRIP IS WELL  WORTH WHILE  To   See  Eight   Furnaces  Granby.  Carrying   Out   Prediction  Four Years.  at  in  Anyone who questions the uninterrupted growth of the mining and smelting industry of the Boundary country  should take a trip to Grand Forks and  see the greatest smelter in Canada in  full operation. It is a sight good to  behold to witness the molten streams  flowing from the eight blast furnaces  now being operated at the Granby  smelting works. Such, at least, was  the opinion of the Pioneer representa  tive who made the trip early this week.  It reminded him of an occasion four  years ago, when S. H. C Miner, then  president of ihe Granby Consolidated,  was on one ot" his periodical' trips to  the company's popcrties, when about  700 tons of ore only were being treat  ed daily, against the average of 2,750  tons of Phoenix ore now daily being  reduced. At that time Mr. Miner  stated to the Pioneer, as I ack files of  the paper will testify, that the company would bring the capacity to  3,000 tons daily���and then it seemed  like drawing a prett) long bow. But  how close to the mark the daily capacity has already been brought���with  still greater enlargements already in  the perspective !  It would be worth all it would cost  if the government would pay the expenses ol a few hundred leading business men fri'm any part of the world  to take a look at the Granhy smelter  in complete operation, and ninety-nine  of them would see something never  dreamed of in their philosophy. As  for Phoenicians and other residents of  the Boundary, the cost is small. Great  Nor'hern trains make the trip possible  in one day, and something well worth  seeing is missed if this trip is overlooked.  Bowling certainly seems to have  taken a firm hold on the young men���  and some not so young���of Phoenix.  Ntarly every night two of *the ten  teams are playing off some the' scheduled games in the tournam nt, and the  interest does hot flag, but rather to the  contrary. It is expected that the  finals in the present tournament will be  played about the zoth of the present  month, and there'is time yet for. more  surprises. Up to Thursday evening  last, the' following stood at the head of  the list : ;  Five highest averages���Devoin 151,  McCoir 151, Brewer 150, Morkill 149,  Dale 144;. . - '.''./'��� Y  Highest team sc,ore���Dey, with 12$*  points, which was made this week.

Granhy shares have been quoted  up to $9.12^ in the Boston market  this week. ,:.,..  Work was resumed this week on th��  Big Four group, on the Eholt road,  James Moran being in charge.  About six feet daily are being made  by Hesselwood and Halcrow on their  sinking contract on the Helen.  The. first carload of lumber for the  building for the new compressor for  the Rawhide mine, came in this week.  Actual sinking is reported to have  been started at the Mother Lode mine,  after considerable preparation. The  main shaft may go down 300 feet to  the 600 foot level.  On account of the difficulty of packing in supplies to Franklin camp,   the  $160 ORE IN  PRINCE HENRY  Elkhorn Also Had  Strike.  An   Ore  High Grade Properties Looking  Well;  Boundary's high   grade  mines  continue to make excel ent   records,   and  some new   properties   will  shortly  be  added to the shipping list in all   probability.    Several important ore   strikes  have recently been made, and the  old  standbys are looking well.  ; The strike of ore reported last week  McKinley   mine  will not be operated I from the   Prince   Henry,   near Green  all winter, but work will doubtless  be wood, is turning out to Be much better  than anticipated.    'I'he ore was found  resumed again in the spring.  -The Midway Star is authority for the  statement that the Great Northern has  just made an ofler of $130,000 for the  British Columbia smelter, and adds  that it would not be surprised if the  offer turned out to be an absolue purchase.  Owing to a strike of workmen at the  powder.factory, dynamite was' scarce  in camp this week, and teams were  sent to Greenwood and Eholt to pick  up what could be had. Fortunately a  car or two arrived, however, and relieved the trouble before it became  acute. The Granby mines alone use  something like two cars per month of  explosives.  Seventeen men are now employed at  the Napoleon mine, near MarCus, under Harry Johns for'the B. C. .Copper  Co. The option on the property lrom  P. Burns & Co. is reported to run till  December, when if it proves satisfactory the option to purchase will be  taken up. Quarrying operations and  some shaft work is being done, and the  mine is shipping almost a car of ore  daily to the Greenwood smelter.  Game* Game* Per  Won    Loat   Cent  Customs far October.

START BUILDI,<<a TO KEIEMCOS.  Work Begin Skcrlly ������ Amber Stctlta mt  V. V��* E.  Patrick Welch, who has charge of  the V.,V. & E. railway construction  work in British Columbia for J. W.  Stewart, was in the city yesterday on  his v ay to Spokane. He stated that a  construction outfit is now on the way  to begin work on the section of the  road from the international boundary  line to Keremeos, and he expected it  to be well under way in about ten days.  While the con'ractors have not yet-  obtained all the railway laborers they-  need, men are now coming in more  freely, since the harvests have been  gathered, and the work under Mr.  Welch is proceeding quite tatisfactorily  on this side of the line west of Midway. The easiest work is being finished before severe weather in, and as the  winters are not bad in many places  along the new line, it is expected to  keep up the rock cutting and other  grading all winter.  Cecil Martin went down to near  Curlew with his father, J. L. Martin,  last Saturday, and will attend to some  assessment work on the Riotintogroup  of copper claims.  Rowland Machin, the popular Bennett fuse man, of Victoria, visited the  camp this week, on his annual trip  through the province, and states that  the demand lor the commojdity increases each year. He will shortly  take a trip down to Mexico, where his  fuse is also having an increased demand.  George C. Rose, who has been customs collector at Cascade for seven  years, has resigned, and will -be succeeded probably by Angus Cameron.  Mr. Rose has purchased the Kelowna  Clarion, and will conduct that  Okanogan Lake weekly as soon as he  is relieved at Cascade. He was a visitor here Tuesday.  Grand Forks board of trade was reorganized Monday evening with the  following officers: President, G. Fripp;  ist vice-president, W. K. C. Manly;  2nd vice-president, M. S. Martin; secretary J. A. McCallum; treasurer,  George    Clark;  Wm. Spier, N. McAllum, P. T. McCallum, Jeff Davis, Chas. Brown, E.  C. .Henniger, Jeffrey Hammar, G. E.  Massie, H. E. Woodland, Geo. Chappie, D. Whiteside, F. Hutton and H.  C. Hanington.  in the bottom of the shaft, at a depth  of some 115 feet. At this depth a,  drift has been run 25 feet in, and the  ore body is from ten to twenty-four  inches wide, being literally sp'inkled  throughout with wire silver. As work  proceeds with the force of six men,  the vein improves. 1 ests made from  average samples give $160 per ton,  mostly in silver and gold, though much  higher results have been had. It is  the intention of the management to  send out a car of ore to the smelter  some time this month.  On the Elkhorn, on which work was  resumed on the tenth of last month,  the miners have already broken into a  body of rich ore that will run over  $100 to the ton. Sinking was continued on the main shaft, through the  dyke for some 15 feet, giving a total  depth of 150 feet, and the same fine  body of ore previously encountered  was reached. Manager Spankie has  .ordered! a five horse power electric  hoist for use at the Elkhorn.  This week the Skylark is loading a  couple of cars of ore, one of high grade  and another of second class, and the  Providence is shipping regularly three  or four cars monthly. The Crescent  and Last Chance also sent out ore.  Other high grade mines are preparing  to send out ore also, and those interested in Boundary's high grade properties are much encouraged.  Original Locator a Visitor.  Henry White, of Spokane, was a  visitor here last Monday. Mr. White  cut and planted the stakes for the location of the Old Ironsides and KnoD  Hill mines in this camp, on the 21st  of July, 1891, Matt Hotter, another  prospector, being interested with him.  From that day 10 this Mr. White has  taken a personal interest in the progress of the properties, which are now  merged in the Granby group, and is  still a considerable shareholder in the  executive commute: j Granby Co., from which he expects to  draw dividends in due course. While's  camp, southwest from Phoenix, where  several important mines are located,  was named after Mr. White, who has  mining interests all over the Boundary.  0  The following table |ir�� the ore ahipmeuta of Boundary milieu   tor 1900.   for 1401 iu" A  190* for 1903 for 1904. and 1905. aa reported to the Phoenix Pioneer��� ^ ^   I  w"vk A  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

In some  places  there  are  business   men who  are  so short  sighted   that  they will not even .advertise in the local paper or subscribe  to  it���they cannot see anything in it for  them.    If they do not see $10 directly  flung over the counter for  every  one  they  spend  in  advertising,   they' say  that advertising is worthless to  them.  They do not realize that advertising is  like  bread cast upon the waters, that,  if properly done, is sure to return many  fold  in   the  course of time; that one  cannot eat enough at one meal to last  a month, or a year, any more than one  can  advertise  once  or twice and get  the returns expected the next  day  or  two.  The following from the Victoria  Week is worth reading by every man  who believes in his own town and in  promoting anything and everything  legitimate that will tend to build .up  the town or district:        , ,,  "The advancement of the mining in  dustry in the Boundary district - is  something which all British Columbians  should be proud of.

ARTHUR  WASPLEASEB  Midway & Vernon Contract  To Be Let Soon.  New York  Financier in the  Boundary.  Alexander A. Arthur, of New York;  after spending nearly a couple of weeks  '" 'lie Hound-try, left here Sunday for  the east, bein-< more.than pleased with  his first visit to this section of British'  Columbia, and unending to leturni at  no distant date.  Mr. Arthur has taken in . hart J   the  li-ianciii}'  of the new Midway cc Vernon railway, running almost due north  Ironi Midway 10 Vernon, in this province,   a   distance  of 150 miles.    The  bonds fur ihe construction of the road  have betui   underwritten   iy   English,  French and German capitalists, to the  extent of $4,500,000, or at the rate of  $3*,ooo p r mile, through Mr. Arthur,  who  came  out  to see the country for  himself,    bringing   eminent   technical  men w.th him to report on the  potentialities of the territory through  which  the  railway   will be built.   .While the  reports have not yet been made public,  it is known that they  are very  favor-,  able, both fro'.n a'mineral and agricuK  tural point of view, as the line wiil. pass  through   the   weir mineralized 'West  Fork of Kettle river valley and emerge  into and   through  a large part of the  richly endowed Okanagan lake   watershed. ���-.'..  In fact, Mr. Arthur stated that bids  lor the entire construction of the line  were now awaiting him at his New  Vurk office, and the contract would be  awarded on his return to that city. At  present only ten miles of the line, out  of Midway, are under construction, in  order to get the actual work under  way, this work being done by Mclean  Bros., of Vancouver. But the entire  contract will be let this fall.  To build the line a company was  organized, entitled the Okanagan Construction Co., the officers of which are  Frederic H. Allen, of New York, president; A. A. Arthur, of New York, vice-  ptesident; and A. E. Best, New York,  sec. treas. The road is being built  for and will be operated by the Midway & Vernon Railway Co:,' with"' a  capital of $1,000,000, and-having the  following officers : President, John  Cain, New York; vice-president, Chas.

Pitt-.hurg,   and    Ralph   Smailes   and  Robert Woods, ol Greenwood, B.C.  Asked as to what connection the  Midway \- Vernon will have with other  ail-vays, Mr. Auhur stated emphatically that it was entirely independent of  any and all other lines in this section,  .ind would be so operated. In fact,  t'le capiial (or its construction comes  entirely outside of Wall street, where  most weslern railways secure capital.  The road will, however, doubtless ar  range for interchange of traffic with  other railways with which it connects.  The work of construction is under  the immediate supervision of Chief  Engineer A. R. T. Lackie, a gentleman who is highly competent in his  line, having been engineer in charge of  the great railway tunnel under, the city  of Baltimore, and having had a wide  experience in railway "work. Mr.  I^tckie now has sixteen men in the  field surveying the route, and making  the final location of the same, the preliminary surveys having been made  some time ago.  Among the original promotors of the  Midway and Vernon railway are Ralph  .Smailes, Robert Wood, Christopher  Wood, Duncan .Mcintosh, James Kerr,  Robert Kerr, all of Greenwood, and  Chailes Wilson of Victoria. The road  has been subsidized by Dominion and  provincial governments for about $t -,-  500 per mile  On leaving the Ponndiry Mr. Arthur went over to Allv-rta and the  Northwest, t.> lo-.>k at some irrigation  i-rojeots in that section. His concern  is no novice in the railway business, as  the same group of capitalists are now  building a line So miles long, south  from Port Angeles, Wash., which will  ultimately reach Grany's Harbor on  the west coast of the state of Washington, being built largely for the valuable timber areas in that section. In  addition to this they are also building  some 700 miles of railway, an independent line, running from Kentucky to  the Atlantic seaboard at Charleston,  South Carolina.

Mfrs  An apt remark ?was made by the  editor of the Greenwood Times last  ivveek when he said that the outlook for  the district never looked brighter. He  could have gone a good deal further,  infact, and asserted with truth that the  outlook for tlie Boundary is probably  as bright from a standpoint of legitimate mining, both high and low grade,  or brighter, than that of any; other'portion'of British Columbia. We are apt  to become impatient because a boom  does not strike this distiict, or because  things do not rriovef faster than they  do.Y A But;5it is well torecbllectthat it  isY the; steady progress;Ybe it ever"so  slow, that cbunts in the long run. And  it is undeniable that there has been  'steady,* progress in "Bouudary  mining,  year after year. ;  �����������,���  English editors are said to be, talking about "how to strap your wife." In  this part of the e'm'pire.'jt is generally  believed to be more in,order to see  that the man who straps his wife gets  many times as good a strapping himself. Heaven knows that he richly deserves it, whatever they may think  about it in London town.  President Roosevelt can now lay  claim to 47 winters and as many summers, having had a-birthday last week.  He will probably continue to worry the  trusts and the railways just the same,  however,, and the man who goes up  against him in the next presidential  campaign in the United .States; will  wonder, after election day, how it all  happened. ���  Mfgalllceit C. P. R. Steaauhips.  There are now under construction  on the Clyde, to be launched next  month, two magnificent' passenger  steamships, destined to be the first of  the fast Trans-Atlantic passenger ser  vice of the.Canadian Pacific Railway  Company. They will be christened  the "Empress of Britain" and "Empress of Ireland." Everything in their  equipment is of the most modern type,  advantage being taken of the latest improvements on steamships throughout  the globe, and many new features for  the comfort and convenience of passengers, and the protection of perishable  freight being introduced. They will  run between Liverpool, Quebec and  Montreal, making their first appearance  in the St. Lawrence with the opening  of navigation next season, and will be  larger and faster than any steamship  hitherto run on this route, their ton  nage being 14.500, length 570 ft., and  breadth 65 ft. They will cost oyer  $2,000,000 each. The passage from  Liverpool to. Quebec will be made in  less than a week, even when taking the  Southern route via Cape Race, adopt  ed by the-Company on account of its  safety. Each steamship will have  accommodation for 300 first class passengers, 350 second cabin, and over  i,000 steerage passengers. A pain'ing  by Arthur Cox, R.
