H Anderson in 'he boarding house of the B. C. mine, Summit  camp. The event happened in a  somewhat cdd manner, but was enjoyed to the full, by the 35 who were  present from Eholt, Denoro, etc.  It appears that Mr. Anderson is in  charge of the property of the B. C.  Chartered Cr., Ltd., owning the B. C.  mine and a dozen other claims in that  locality About 106,000 tons of ore  were shipped from the B. C, the property being completely equipped by the  Montreal owners v with machinery,  houses, etc. But/after getting their  entire investment! back, they did not  care to spend anything in development  and for;.'-'two or^.three years the pro|>-  erty has been idle, in care of Mr. Anderson, who had been the foreman.  Someof the claims had not been  crown granted,-'anu one day last week,  ORE GRDSHER  Another   Mammoth   Machine  for Granby.  Equipment   for    Main  Headworks.

The railway construction, mix-up  near Midway seems to be on .fiercer  than ever this week, and the fat is nil  in the firrK.again, -evidently,.^notwithstanding that the -V., V;:'&'Ei came  out ahead in the legal battle at; Vancouver last Saturday.  This week C.P.R. workmen went  out a little farther on the line, beyond  the point in dispute before, where the  V., V. &; E. line, is said to cross the  proposed C. P. R. line, and stopped  the Jim Hill men from continuing  construction at Johnson & Anderson's  camp, tearing up their rails. Then  the police got into the game, and  Kredeiick McLean, of Greenwood,  sub-land agent for the C. P. R., succeeded in inspecting involuntarily the  inside of the Midway jail. Later he  was released, and yesterday a number  of provincial policemen were being  rushed to the scene of the incipient  war.  Altogether, something like 800 or  906 men are said to be on one side  or the other in the mix-tip, and some  rough handling is reported, though as  yet no claret has iieen spilled among  the beligerents. Whether a modus  vivendi, or something of that kind, had  been declared, the Pioneer' had not  heard at the time'of'going' to press.  known to two or three and they were  on hand to relocate the ground. Mr.  Anderson, however, was not asleep,  either, and promptly at midnight of  the appointed, date he drove the slakes  for a new location and saved the property. .:.  .The banquet if/as in honor of the  vanquished and Mr. Anderson's many  frien.ds.and enjoyment reigned supreme  for several hours in the B. C. boarding  house.��� 'D.'R. McElmon, Eholt's postmaster, made an admirable toastmaster,  and songs and speeches were the order  of the evening until a late hour, after  justice had been done to the excellent  menu set forth. ;.  Supt. A. B. W. Hodges, of the  Granby Co., spent a day in camp this  week, and stated that he had placed  oiders for. the Granby Consolidated for  some ol the new machinery which will  be required, in the headwoik's" for the  new main working shaft of the . mine.  Other and additional orders will probably be placed shortly for the balance  of the needed equipment.

The makers of these crushers assert  that, to their' knowledge, there is  nothing of the kind so large in use at  any mine in Canada or on the American continent.  An order was also placed with "the  Canadian Westinghouse Co., Ltd., for  a 250 horse power electric1 motor with  accessories, and it will be capable bi  furnishing power for hoisting heavy  loads from :,a^depth of i,ooa.-feet..  There will also be other motors, transformers, etc.  The machinery will be the latest  improved obtainable, and will be installed as soon as manufactured, which  will necessarily require some little  time. The headworks of the new  shaft will, as stated by Manager Graves  some time ago, represent, with the  shaft itself, an investment of about  $100,000.

Thursday evening the new Brooklyn hotel, built on the site of the Brooklyn and Phoenix hotels destroyed by fire on February 14th last, was thrown  open to the public. The building was thronged all the evening, many friends  of the pioprietor, James Marshall, coming from Greenwood for the event. An  iiifiirnia! dance was given in the dining room, a large number availing themselves of the opportunity for enjoying themselves in this manner.  -----V-The Brooklyn hotel is a three-story structure, erected by James Marshall  and.jG. W.. Rumberger, the building being about 63 feet square on the ground.  It was erected in the most thorough manner throughout, the work being done  by day's labor-from the beginning under the supervision of Alex Strachan.  The nearly forty rooms are all light and airy, and are well furnished in every  respect.; There is hot and cold water throughout the building, with lavatories,  bathrooms, electric lights, etc.  An expenditure of about $20,000 was required to put the Brooklyn in its  present spic and span condition, and it is undoubtedly one of the best hotels  in the Boundary today, being an exhibit of the faith the owners have in the  future of Phoenix.  Mr. Marshall is much pleased at the enthusiastic reception of the new.  hotel, and he will doubtless do his share of business. The dining room will  be thrown open next Monday, and a few finishing touches by painters and carpenters are now being applied.  ��� Granby shares-touched $9.50 in- the  Boston market this week,. ,  Shipments of ore. hive been going  out of -both the Brooklyn and Stem-  winder mines this week.  1 1 1  Five cars of ore were sent out from  the Rawhide mine this week, the first  since the middle of May.  It is understood that the Dominion  Copper Co. will open -up then Sunset  mine, Deadwppd camp, at-jonce,.

The  offer was not accepted. .'_  A report from Grand Forks states  that arrangements are being made for  the granting of-a lease for three years  on the Yankee Boy and Yankee-Girl  properties on Hardy mountain,' near  that city. It.is the intention of the  new management to start shipping  to the local smelters. , These claims  are among the earliest locations on  Hardy mountain and are noted for  their, many small seams of good  grade ore, which runs as high as $55  in all. values to the ton.  88,381 TONS  IN OCTOBER  Output Increased 33 Per Cent  Over September.

As was'expected when the results of  the two additional, furnaces at the  Granby smelter were felt, the tonnage  bf'thff Boundary made a decided" advance, as Is shown by the totals for the  month of' October,' although the''full  battery of eight furrir.ce3 at the Granby  smelter- were not in commission for- the  full month.' Nevertheless, that reduction works managed to treat more than  70,000 tons of ore during trie-calendar  month, as against 32,000 the month  previouj, September. There is every  reason to expect the totaf "'for the  month of November to be even larger  than that for October.  The total of 88,000 tons of ore  mined and shipped for the month of  October from the Boundary properties,  is an increase of about 33 per cent  over September, when the total was  66,396 tons.

For a year past the Oro Denoro  mine,.a quarrying proposition in Summit camp, has been operated in a  desultory manner by the Denoro  Mines, Ltd., less than 3,000 tons of  ore having been shipped this year.  It is understood, however, that in a  short time the mine will be worked  more extensively. New capital, from  Montreal, is becoming interested, and  the intention is to develop and ship  over the Great Northern from the ore  body opened up a year ago by the  construction of that railway line across  the property. R. H. Anderson, formerly at the B.C. and LeRoi mines, is  to be in charge, and S. F. Parrish,  favorably known in both Boundary  and Rossland, when manager of the  two properties mentioned, will be consulting engineer.  It is expected that work under the  new management will be started in the  course of two or three weeks.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

On November 1st the Slocan Star  paid its first dividend of this year, being $25,000, or five per cent on the  capital of $500,000.  The good news of the Ymir mine,  recently reported, is now more than  confirmed. It is claimed that the  future of this property is now assured.  Walker Smith has secured a thrte  years' lease on the Payne mine and  plant. It is expected that the Payne  will proceed with new development  and become once more a steady  shipper.  For the year ending June 30, 1905,  the Hall Mining & Smelting Co. made  a profit of ^5,094, according to the  annual report recently published.

The Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern  railway was granted its tight of way  over the lands of the Columbia &  Western Railway company, near Midway, by Mr. Justice Mornson, sitting  in chambers on Saturday at Vancouver.  The Columbia & Western is a company subsidiaiy to the Canadian Pacific railway, and recently ejected the  workmen of the V.,V. & E. road from  pushing construction on its land.  A. H. McNeill, K.C., of Rossland,  made the application for the V., V. &  E. After placing the necessary documents in evidence, he said that immediate possession ol the land was of the  utmost importance to the V., V. & E..  as it has a large force of men wailing  ready to go on with the work.  D. G Marshall, appearing for the  Canadian Pacific railway, wished the  application adjourned as he had not  had sufficient time to look into the  matter.  Mr. McNeill vigorously opposed t1 e  request. He wished the order made at  once so that the deposit ol $1,810.50  required by the railway act lo pay for  the expropriation might be deposi cd  before the banks closed at noon.  His lordship said he would all.-vw the  application to proceed and asked Mr.  Marshall lo state his objections.  Mr. Marshall said he had   not   the  material before him .and could not.  -    His lordship granted the order, and  Mr., MacNeill   hurried   away   to   the  bank to pay the amount required.'

As will be seen from  Mr. Campbell's report, the sales of ore to several  oilier smelters during  the   year   were  18,248 tons, in addition to 7,257 used  in   our   owii   Hi:naces; while our one-  fourth shaie of the net profits amounted to .��2,8.10 15s lod."  In the report of the' business -manager, J.

On December 1st the manage  meni of the Emma, Jumbo and Minnie  Moor, was handed over to the British  Columbia Copper Co., under an agreement which protects our interests.  The mine being only nine miles distant from Greenwood, where that com:  pany has a competent engineering staff,  it can be conveniently supervised by  them. During the summei months ol  1904 shipments were kept .up.well, b'ut  with cold weather the water supply for  the boilers became very short, and  shipments were restricted. The shipments for the year were as follows :  Nelson, 7.257 tons; Trail, 915 tons;  Greenwood, 15.556 tons; Boundary  Falls, 1,777 lons> i" al' 25>5��5 tons-  "Feeling satisfied as to the extent ot  ihe ore reseives, a double-compartment  woiking shaft was begun; and, as the  ..Ie could be nioie economically ex-  rucicd after its compleiion, only sufii-  cu-nt ore for the itquiiements ol the  smelters of the two companies was in  ;be meantime cx'.racted. The woiking  :>liafi is 150 feet deep, and the ore  body has been entered by a crosscut  from the bottom, where the ore is found  to be of the same satisfactoiy quality  as in the other workings.  "In a few months it is expected that  the West Kootenay Puvyer & Light  Co. will be able to supply the mine  with electiical power, and the output  can then be conveniently and economically regulated to suit the requirements of the two smelting works.  "We continued the operation of the  Mountain Rose, and shipped 6,254  tons oi oie duiingthe yuar to smelters  at Gieenwood and 11 -lUiidary Falls.

Still,  Editor Mott may make it win.  A cruel story is told of a certain old  maid who had a timorous admirer and  who confided to a man friend that he  had tried in vain to propose, but al.  ways lacked the necessary nerve to pup  the momentous question. "Why don't  you telephone ?" said this flippant person. The idea appealed to the timid  one and he put it in practice. "Is  that Miss Brown ?" "Yes." "Well,  Miss Brown, will you marry me?"

"Since my advanced age I find that  I have been frequently troubled with  urinary ailments.

The Irritation gradually subsided and  the urinary difficulties passed away. I  have,enjoyed excellent health now for  the past seven months.

Pioneer three years ago, this , will be only too glad to send away to  paper  will   issue  a   Holiday Number capitalists looking for investment or to  Useful Circular on Education.  A ciiculai respecting the opeiaUon  of "The I'ubiic Schools Act 1905" in  the itiral districts of the province, has  been issued by the department of education with a view of explaining fully  the woikings ot those sections of the  new a t which deal more paiticularU  with the management of school affairs  in the rural distiict".  Atteiit'on is particulaily called to  section 24 of the act, which provides  for special aid to districts, where it is  needed; to section 59, which provides  for v'aiious exemptions, and to section  67, which provides the light of appeal  against assessment.  The regulations referring to the  duties of trustees of assisted schools  and regular school districts in one part  ol the circular and those refening only  to regularly organized school districts  under another sub-head, so that it may  be seen at a glance how the regulations vary in er-ch case.  The circular will be particularly  useful to tiustees and secretaries ol  school boards and of general interest  to every voter, who takes an interest  in educational matters.  The recent arrival of the musical  Biner family here to make their homes  once more, was welcomed by all those  who enjoy good music for dances, etc.  In the past we have often had good,  indifferent and poor music for these  occasions, the latter two predominating. The Biners are making arrangements to organize an excellent orchestra, and those who appreciate good  time as well as good music for dancing  will be glad to know it.  w  The C.P.R. has done a good thing  for the people of the Kootenays and  for itself in reducing the travelling time  between Nelson and the coast by some  12 hours. The road will undoubtedly  gain from it, even though it does not  affect residents of the Boundary. It is  noticeable, however, that the Great  Northern is also awakening on this  subject, and it is currently reported  that about the 1st of December that  road will improve its service to the  Kootenays materially.

V.  CHtircH Services   j!  Tomorrow. j'  ���Completely Incapabla   Manner  Is Hiadlcd.  If the completely incapable manner  in which the mails aie handled in the  Kootenays is to be taken as a lair  sample of the management of the post-  office department in other pails of the  Dominion, that department certainly  needs fixing. As an instance, the  I'hoenix Pioneer says the mail from  ihe United States destined for Phoenix  is made up in sacks nn the Great  Northern mail train from Spokane.  When the train arrives at Ginnd  Forks, these sacks are thrown off, and  the train���the same identical train���  goes on direct to I'hoenix. The I'hoenix mail is thus left in Grand Forks  for a day, so that the C. P.'R. may  bring it here 24 hours later. This has  been g ing on now for nearly eight  months, and the inconvenience of this  needless and inexcusable delay still  continues. The department gives as  a reason for this, that the net revenue  from the Phoenix postofnee i.s only  $1,200 per annum, and it would cost  that much to carry mails to Plioenix  on the Great Northern. If this is the  principle on which the department L  to be run, it would seem as if there  were many districts in Canada which  should be deprived of mail facilities'  altogether.���Nelson Economist.
