A shoit time ago a foice 01 men  weie placed at' woik *on the luiihei  end ol the Grey Eagle ground, adjoining the Knob Mill, to asceilaiu what  could be had in lhat locality in the  way ot sin lace shipping ore, A pipe  line was 1111 about 500 feet, from the  Wat Eagle compiessor, and lhat  machine used in the stripping. Tlvs  woik has now- been completed, aud  has pioved to the satislaction of Mi.  Williams the actual existence ot large  additional bodies of ore, which weie  believed beloie to be there. An ore  body zoo leet wide has been uncover  ed, and in one place a ml in the oie  has been made 30 feet deep and 20  leet wide. As the lecent tall of snow  was troublesome," the woik on the  Grey Eagle suiface has been discontinued, but the management is moie  than pleased with the lesults accomplished.  A plan has been in mind '��� for some  time to 1U11 the mam Knob Hill tunnel right thiough the mountain-, coming out on the Giey Eagle side lull.  'This would necessitate' diiung the  tunnel and its extensions alleady"!riiade  ,111 the Grey Eagle ground a distance  ol about 300 leet, it being in how some  1300 feet.y,.

'It has been noted -recently that the  output of theG>anby;smelterat Grand  'Forks.has been gradually getting heavier and heavier,- althortgny there has as  yet been no. increase'in the number of  luiiia'ces in Vise 'down there.       ���  A Pioneer, man inquired of William  Yolen Williams the reason for this,  aiid tlie explanation was apparently  very- simple. Heretofore it has been  the custom to send down all the ore  to the smelter just as it came from the  mine, where it was all crushed to the  size desired before being fed into the  immense blast furnaces. 'This worked  very well, but S.upt. Hodges, of the  smelter, wished to experiment a little  .with tilt).ore,. So,an..immense "grizzly"  Was made of railway iron to go over  one of the ore bins at the mine. 'This  is nothing more or less than a big  screen, by which the smaller 'pieces ol  oie are sorted and,.kept separate, the  largest of the small piece., being not  more than six inches in'diameter. 'It  has been -.thus -.found by experiment  that, this sorted ore, when smelted  with the other-ore, will allow of a larger  tonnage being put through the furnaces ydaily, and f still .producing the  standard quality, of'.matte, and having  no greater fosses than before���which  are well known to be as low as at any  smeltei bn'-the'eontinent.;  As hji-esult tlie uyo furaces oi the  smelteji "-Sliich have fli nominal capacity of 250 tons each per day, one day  recently put-triTcmp-yjotons of Phoenix ore, or an a'vta'age 'of ��� 475 ions  each.

W. H.

At the Sunset .mine, Deadwood  camp, the new oie bins have been  completed, and woik lias been staitec  cm tlie bunkhouse.  Yesterday was payday at the Snow-  shoe, and checks were made out in  some sixty difleient names, the laigest  list yet had at this property.  It is teported that the Jewel mine,  Long Lake camp, has ordered a new  hoist, and will' increase"the"e\isling  plant by two additional drills.  Last week the Granby smelter broke  all its previous records for 01 c treatment, the daily average lor the two  fin nai-es being over  711   tons.  'Ihe LucTe Die)uis group, neai  Nelson, Wash., had 31 tons of oie  treated at the Granby Smelter this  week, going $12.45 |<ei lon> it is said.

'This week a mining man by the.  name of McDonald and- one of the  well known mining Porters'were ex:  amiiiing the Athelstan, in Wellington  camp, with a view to making a deal.  .'The water will 'probably be pumped  out -before long,  'The Cascade and Bonanza groups,  east of Christina lake, near Gladstone,  are beginning a series of lo-ton shipments to the .Granby smelter. H01I1  properties were located'at the time of-  the building of the C. P. R. into the  Boundary, three years ago.  'Two carloads of furnace and structural material for the Greenwood  smelter arrived this w :ek and the!  erectionof the new filrnace will now"  be pushed. It is anticipated that they.  will be ready lor operation by the New.  Year. 'The treatment capacity of the  smelter thereafter, it is said, will be  between 750 and 800 tons daily.  It is now expected that the work of  enlarging the Granby smelter to a  capacity of 1,390 tons per day will rot  be completed before January 151I1.  'The first installment of the two tew  furnaces, whose construction was de  layod owing to the machinists' strike  in Chicago, reached the* smelter last  Monday. 'The re.mainder-of the sampler machinery has also arrived, and  is being set up.  Invitations are out  for  the second  annual ball of Greenwood lodge K.  of  9-  P., No. 29.

Mining men ol vauous degiees ol import-,  a nee iu this connection have been  gathenng| lotind about die last tew  days,' and it leally begins to look as  though 'something would be doiie  shoitly about stalling up the pioper-  ties once more. As yet, howevei,  nothing definite can pe learned,_ and  Dame Rumoi has the floor. Whethei  she leaf I) knows anything about ie're-  mains to be seen.  Wednesday   night  J.   E.   Boss,  of  l'oionto, ai rived 111 camp, accompanied oy F. W. 'Thomas,  engineer ol the  H. ('. Copper Co.,   Ltd.,  owning  the  Mother   Lode   mine   and   smelter,  Rudolph Liden, supeiinlenuent of the  smeltei, also being in the party.   'They  weie closeted with J. L.

'Thomas  has    visited   the  Dominion  Copper Co.'s mines in this camp, and  no one  thinks he conies   here  simply  for his health.''    It is believed in some  quaiteis  that   there  is a deal  on   of  some kind between the Mother   Lode  people 411CI the Dominion Copper people. ' Whether this deal  is lor  taking  over of  the Brooklyn and Stemwinder  giouns entire, 01 merely foi   the 'treatment ot the oie in   large  quantities,  doesnot yet leak out. But it is said that,  now that the Mothei Lode  people are  leady to neat double the late aveiage  ol oie at their smelter, they- aie anxious to get a big additional supply.   It  seems pietty .certain that they can get  this  supply-in -the-Brooklyn,-Stem-  uindci, Idaho and Rawhide.  Air. Breed Coming Soon.  Notwithstanding   the   reports  that  have been published this fall in legaid  to Mr. Jiiecn being out of the Domin  ion Copper Co.,   theie seems   tea son  to doubt then  actcnacy.     It was well  known  that,   for  spending  a  ceitain  amount ol money here, Mi. Breen   seemed a laige block of the  company's  stock.     'Then  a  hitch  occurred  be  tween the directois ol the company in  l'oionto and Mr. Bieen, due it is said  to a disagreement as to the location of  the smelter that he was  to  build  foi  the company.   Just  about   this  time  Mr. Breen  apparently dropped out of  the active direction of the company's  affairs in Phoenix, and  work  on  the  properties, was ' temporarily  discontinued; 911 orders from/Toronto.  Mr. Boss, who was, it is said, 'instrumental'in the organizing of the  D01Winio.11 Copper Co. originally,, and  latter in getting Mr. Breen to take  h6ld, is once more in Phoenix, and  will' probably'stay for a while, till something definite is known. Mr. Breeu  was in-Niiw York recently, and had  some conferences with several people  interested out? here, and is expected to  arrive in Phoenix almost any day.  Among other rumors circulated was  one that M'f.' Bieen had sold out his  interest in the Dominion Copper Co.,  and another that he had secured an  absolute control in the affairs of the  company; but none of these can be  verified up to the tinie of going to'  press.- In many ways it would be a  good thing if the Mother Lode people  obtained control of the Brooklyn  group, and it would be an equally  good thing if Mr. Breen himself should  have full swing in the direction of affairs. In any event,..it appears almost  ceitain that strong',efforts are being  made to get the 'properties woiking  again and shipping, either to a smelter  owned by the company���r-the building  of which was One of the main ideas of  Mi. Breen^-oi..to "some smelter- now  ruuniiik! in the Boundary.

Wednesday evening about 11 o'clock  fire bioke out in the dry 100m of the  Phoenix Laundry, in the basement, of  the Millei block, on Dominion avenue.  Before it was put out the basement-  was gutted, and theclothing store overhead was practically destroyed and  some damage was' done to the Mint  hotel building adjoining.' 'Those who  weie piesent weie unanimous in saying  that but for the efficient water system,  'that entire side of Dominion avenue,  which is closely built, would have gone  up in smoke. It was the first practical  lilustiation of the effectiveness of the  new wajer supply.  Engineer Cock, at the Old Ironsides mine was just going on shift,  when he aw the smoke and gave the  alaim with the whistle. Immediately  the members of the volunteer fire  brigade were on the scene and at work,  one contingent bringing down the hose  reel fiom the upper town. Chief  Hemenway was on hand to direct  operations, and there were soon two  heavy streams playing on the buildings. On account of the burning  clothing the smoke was dense, and  the flames themselves were hidden as  they crept between the walls. 'They  weie, however, put out, the fire not  getting beyond the buildings leferred  to. The fire laddies certainly did excellent work and saved much  propeity. 'Two minutes after the first  alarm, a stream of water was playing  on the ^ire, and in five minutes the uptown hose team was there also.      r  'The Phoenix Launday was owned  by J.;T. Lawrence, now down with  typhoid fever in the Gieenwood hos-  pital^ His loss is nearly total, and ,it  is said there was no insurance. He  also occupied the old Columbia telephone office on the stieet level.  '1 he   Union   store,   owned  by  A. '  Fleishmann and 1. Lukov, is a  pretty-  bad wreck, much of the damage being  from water.    It is said that Mr. Lukov  had $800 msuiance on his stock.  Miller Bros, sustained a considerable  loss on the building fully covered by  msuiance.  Neil Stuart, ownei of the Mint hotel,  also had a loss of several hundred  dollars, which was insuied.  Got Even and Skipped.  About a month ago two Italians  working on the finishing up of the'  Brooklyn spur for 'Ticrnay &,McPhail,.  got into an altercation and came "to  blows. - Angelo Pasco cracked Joseph  Constance over the head, and thinking he had. killed him, Pasco made  himself scarce by way of tlie Eholt  trail. Chief of Police Flood set out  after and over took him near Summit  City. He was brought back and fined  by the.,magistrate for his friskiness.  But this was not the end. Con-  siance'felt that he had been given the  worst of it, and vowed to get even  when the time came. It came last  Saturday when both men were asjain  working for the same firm ori the  Knob. Hill spur extension. Seizing  his opportunity and a spike maul at  the same fi me, Constance struck Pasco on the head, and the latter fell like  a log. He was taken to the Green- :  wood hospital,'and is now recovering.  'The police were not notified for 24  hours after the occurence, .so that Constance had a good chance to put considerable territory between himself and  Phoenix, and.has not been heard from  since.

The specimens referred to were doing  a business of which they should have  been ashamed, and for which they  should have been diummed out of  their respective localities.

Haggerty, of Loom is,  Wash., .who because of his previous  connection with the pi ess was allowed  to ventUiis spleen in the Spokesman-  Review; against the Palmer . Mountain  Tunnel Co., a mining concern against  which he is alleged r to have: had a  fancied grievance. Mr. Haggerty  knocldd as loudly as he could against  the concern, and when he returned "to  Loomis, was treated to a  coat of tar  .    .. '  and feathers by the indignant business  men' 0/ that town. 'Mr.-Haggerty put  qp a $50 forfeit' with' the Spokesman-  Review for an examination of the  tunnel, which was- treated with con-  temptby the management of the tunnel  company, seeing that' it would be  Worth, some $3,000 to make an'expeit  examination" of the property!  Whether Haggerty's statements were  or were not correct, this was a deliberate case of knocking, and' his fellow  citizens at Loomis so considered it,  taking the law into their own hands  and'acting accordingly.  I - Some of the best properties today  in British'Columbia have been turned  'down,by experts, and some of the best  cities,hav^ been let severely alone ,by  investors���to the financial loss of both.  Opinions, especially in incipient stages  jof development, differ; but thai is no  Teason for knocking. If one does not  like his surroundings or environments  let him go elsewhere or hold his peace.  Byj knocking he does no one any good,  but -on the contrary; harm. There is  no room for the knocker iu British  Columbia���let hi in seek other climes'.  Thus far the Pioneer has not been  a remarkable1 financial - success,  although by the hardest kin<i<of work  we have' managed' to meet our paper  bills promptly, to liquidate with the  able assistants in the mechanical department and Unsuccessfully stand off  the- sheriff. Possibly we are to be  congratulated for even that much  progress, with the hope of making  something in the future.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS.  John Houston keeps hammering  away at redistribution. Good for John.  The sultan liquidates claims quickly  when enough cruisers are sent to em  phasize demands. He is, sometimes,  a man of discretion. .  The Rossland Miner thinks that  city is "bound to boom" this winter.  What's the matter with getting the  labor troubles settled before talking  about booms. A boom is a doubtful  blessing, anyway.  ; '���>, There is one thing about Smith  'Curtis, the member for this riding. No  Wne doubt for a minute where he  stands in provincial politics. This is  more than can be said of several members of the legislature.  BRITISH COLUMBIA MINING NOTES.  'I'he WhitewatcfTias eighty men at  work.

The matter found  its way into the- courts and Judge  K01 in directed that an issue should ue  tried beloie the supreme court as to  the manner in which the lapsing'ol the  McKinnon certificate affected the interest, held by him-in the properly.  "It was in[this. sh-ipe that the. case  came before; Mr. Justice Irving.

The following ai tide in regard to  the (iianby Co. was printed in the  November issue of the lJiitish Columbia Mining Record of Victoria:  The statement made by Mr. Miner,  president of the Granby Mining,  Smelting and Power Co., the other  day that the improvements at the  Granby smelter, now under constiuc-  tion, are being paid for .entirely out o(  the piofits of-the last and this year's  operations, is extiemcly satisfactory.  This company has not been very forward in bringing out a balance sheet  and report, but, on the contiaiy, the  main subscribers to the shaies aie the  original subsciibeis, when the van'ous  companies now consolidated were pio-  moted, and if they aie satisfied the  public has liot any veiy seiious icason  of complaint.  This company's operations have for  some reason or another always been  subjected to more than oidinaiy  amount of ciiticism, but in looking  back over its histoiy it is difficult to  see where greater economy ol organization 01 efficiency ol working could have  been attained. The ore in the Knob  Hill and Ironsides is exceedingly low  giade. It has always been telt that  its successitil tiealinent was in the  natuie of an expenment. Hut, certainly, il it had not been successlu!  theie would have been something very  lai out in the oiiginal calculations of  its nature and v.ilue. It has, apparently on. the contrary, proved fully as  amenable to treatment as was expected,  and the various economics originated  in connection with the mine and  smelter have proved most efficient and,  valuable. According to - Mr. Miner'  the cost of smelting has already been  reduced to $1.90 a ton and the increase in, the plant, now-being ppid for  out of profits, is expected not merely  to double the tonnage but to still  further decrease the cost of treatment  per ton. , Under these circumstances  there is fairly good authority, for the  assertion that the enterprise is a  proved success.

A week and timid advertiser cannot  hope tor success.  Today advertising has become a  definite fixed factor in the building up  and! maintaining of trade.���Shoe and  Leather Gazette.  After-trie merchandise is puichased,  after the service is hired, the steam  tliat i.s generated in order to make the  machine jnove is the advertising.  The reader,who ignores the advertisements loses part of the value of the  periodical, and that most readers know  this is shown by the extent to which  ads are read these days.  Nearly all the New York dailies opposed Tammany Hall in the election  in that city last week. Result,  Tammany effectively turned down.  .'There's*a lesson in this toradvert'sers.  It is easier to keep business, going  after you have it started, and the  merchant who yets the lever of good  advertising behind his business, arid  uses/it persistently and intelligently,  will not only find it easier alter he  makes a st'art,; but w'ill also find it  possible to increase .the speed almost  to suit his pleasure.  Co-  Editor Hell, the pessimistic individual who runs the Mining Review  at Ottawa, frequently engages in  crusades against the mines of British  Columbia and'is now energetically  slating the Granby Consolidated, which  is operating the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides, etc., in Phoenix camp. The  trouble with Mr. Hell is that he affects  to believe that all of the really good  mines of Canada are located 111 the  part not far from where his publication is issued and he considers, apparently, that. his. best--policy, from a personally profitable standpoint, is to discourage investment in the west by decrying ihe mines and to stimulate it in  the east'by loud praise of the mines  there.  He is, however, recognized everywhere as a professional 'pessimist and  not *h great deal of attention is paid to  his.jferemaids on the, industry of Ileitis!) Columbia. ...The most .unanswerable answer to his tieades of abuse i.s  the marked difference between the  mineral output of Eastern and Western Canada.

McKENZIE  The Druggist.  Dominion  Avenue.  Phoeobc, B. C. ����  Deal on for Standard Smelter.  ' A Greenwood dispatch states that  another deal is on for the sale of the  Standard Pyritic smelter, located at  Boundary Falls. E. K. Wilson, manager of the smelter company, has returned fiom Quebec, where he went  to consult the owners leg.irding the  disposal ot the plant. While not denying, he lefused to confirm the report  that the Montreal and Boston Copper  company has started negotiations for  the purchase of the propel ly. This  company owns the Sunset mine in  Deadw'ood camp, which is now capable  of producing sufficient daily tonnage to  warrant the belief that it desires to own  reduction works. A. A. Munroe of  Montreal, a director of the company,  is due in Greenwood next-week to inspect the smelter and arinnge negotiation.  Otean Sailings, St. Lawrence Ronte.  Passengers for the Old Country  desiring to travel via the dnect and  comfortable St. Lawience route should  note the following sailings for the  Allan and Elder-Dempster lines, which  are the last for the season ot 1901  from Montreal to Liverpool: Lake  Manitoba, Nov. 15th; Corinthian,  Nov. 16th; Lake Ontario, Nov. 22nd.  The Tunisian, Corinthian, Lake Sim-  coa and Manitoba are new 10,000 ton  steamers and rank equal to the crack  liners fiom New York. Early application should be made to neatest C. P.  R. agent to insure accommodation on  * these popular ships.  The other day the Pioneer man was  stopped by a tesideiitof this place, and  exception taken to the articles that  have appeared*" lately in legard to  pationizing home indusliies���instead  ot eastern sweatshops. The exception  was taken solely on the ground of an  article costing a meietiifle moie heie  than jti the east. The man refened  to works steadily and gets good wages,  M  Ofcouise, it depends somewhat on  the point of view in a matter of this  kind. It Js tiue that one can olten  buy for less cost in the east than in  the Boundary, but if eveiy man, woman  and child made a practice of doing so,  we could never'build a thriving town  here" in-a century. It is pulling together that accomplishes results worth  having; and if we nil pull separately,  theie will be no results. If we make  a practice ol buying nearly even thing  in the east, we,.will soon not be able  to get much of anything here, as it  would not be worth while for merchants  to cany much of a,stock."  m  A well known business man of  Phoenix recently sent to Vancouvei  lor an older lor printing, and th.it  without asking the well equipped  Pioneer Job Office if the work could  have been done here���which it could,  ot course. He may have saved a lew  cents on the job, and when received  il in.iy have been satisfactory; but 11  the patrons ot that sanje inei chant  should send to Vancouver 01 eisewheie  for goods'in his line, he would bejhe  first to register a howl. ^  Here is another case. A man in  Phoenix sent to Philadelphia���all tlie  way lo Peniis)lvania���loi some job  piinting that could have been done as  well or better iiriht here in Phoenix.  Of course he had to pay duty and  express.  Bub-Sleighs. , ,  We have for miIij ���' mnuhc-i <il pnii  oi' bob sleighs with good biases al  tncheo.   Yai.i: CoumniA Lu\lil^.KC'cf,  PhoenK, H.

JEvery man who conies  to Phoenix does so because wages aie  good. That Leing the case he must  expect to pay a little more than in the  east lor what he buys heie, for the average merchant,-as well as the laboring  man, did not come heie entiiely foi  his health, and is therefore entitled'to  a fair-piofit on what he sells. Btiyeis  complain sometimes because they cannot get this or lhat here, and then  discourage merchants from carrying  these things by sending away foi them.  It is woilh while for every man in  Phoenix to consider both sides of the  question.  L'arj-ains |a Watches and Jewelry.
