The'mine being then  shut, down,. my son, R. E. Plewman,  found it impossible to create any interest in a formal meeting^.  The financial statement now submitted therefore nominally covers two  years, during twelve months of which  time the property was'lying idle. The  circumstances connected,'with the fire  are too well known to bedwelt upon,j  and the causes which Jed' up.to the re.  sumptipn of work on the' property,were  explained in my'circular letter of Sepr  tember 4th to the shareholders. '.' ���-.  In that letter I -think sound and  cogent reasons were given why the  stockholders should support the management financially. ; Inattempting to  reach that objective it must be admitted that the letter was a failure, for  only $50 has been received from the  stockholders of record, ;and not 10%  were sufficiently interested to send in  their proxies. But at the mine the  aspect^jf affairs is decidedly more encouraging. , . ... . "iOf  Our new shafthouse, 62x26, with 16  foot walls, has just been closed in. A  substantial gallows frame, 33 feet high,  with automatic dumping arrangement,  has been erected, and from, the shaft-  house an overhead tramway extends to  the C. P. R. siding and at right angles  to it. On reaching the. siding it  branches to right and to left for 130  feet, thereby giving simultaneously  most convenient shipping facilities to  four C P. R. dump cars. At the eastern end of this tramway an inclined  railway, worked by a 5x5 hoist, runs  down to the dump and encircles'it. By  this .means; within three weeks of starting 1,000 tons qf second class ore were  shipped from the dump, and the net  proceeds will more than pay for the'en^'  (ire cost of the new buildings. Tin's)  outdoor work. |ias now been discontinued owing to the recent heavy snowfall, but will he- resumed next .spring.  About ten days ago shipments commenced from the 50 foot level and we  have already  shipped   300   tons   of  clean ore from it,    With every  pound  mined thu showing improved and there  is now five times the amount of ore in  sight than ever was seen there  before.  When the 100 foot level was unwatered a few days ago a considerable cave  in was disclosed.    The level has been  cleaned out, timbered where necessary  and mining commenced,and in  a  few  days a shipment -.will   be  made  from  what is known   on   the level   as  the  Western or Copper vein.    Unwatering  the    mine    still   continues 'and   we  have now reached the 300  foot   level  and in a few days we hope to  have it  pumped out.    The main   workings of  the Winnipeg mines are on  this  ievel  and we expect to have it  cleaned  out  (an awful job, for slime and stench),  rails laid and all connections made by  the time our compressor  is   installed.  The Granby contract  price  for repairing the latter js $500.06, and this  item does not yet appear  in the company's books,  ' Until  the  compressor  is working it will he a difficult matter  to keep'tlie'shipments up to 13  cars  per week with   only  hand  labor  em  ployed and tiie dump ore  lost to us.  But anyhow the ore  shipped   will   be  higher grade, being all from the mine.  Guides or runners for the large new  ore buckets have been laid .down the  shaft to the 100 foot'level and will be  continued to the 300���foot, soon, as the  unwatering of that level has been completed.    On the whole I think   it   will  be admitted   that  extraordinary ��� pro  shipping:has been*.made in the Jast  five weeks arid iri another month we  shall have shipped-.more ore than the  total shipments from the mine prior to  the date of the fire; .  Instead of making any further appeals to the shareholders. I. hope to see  the sale of the treasury stock altogether withdrawn within a few days. We  still need that $5000.60 as', shown by  the trial balance and financial statement (which speak for themselves),  but with 29 cars of.ore at or gone to  the smelter, and regular shipments of  10 or 12 cars per week following, I  have no hesitation rin>expressing my  belief that the Winnipeg mine can  take care of itself in the future.  I have to thank the local firms in  Phoenix for their support, both in  taking stock to help us out, and in  supplying unlimited credit for our requirements. Without!' such aid the  mine could not have .resumed work,  and Winnipeg stockholders should  know to whom they are indebted.  Further, it is not a bad feature of the  present situation that shrewd local  business men are becoming financially  interested in Winnipeg affairs.  ���  /  Richard  Plewman.

The day was a pleasant  one, and there were many workers for  each candidate on hand. Returns  from Cascade, Carson and Bannock  City were received about six o'clock,  and showed how the general''result  was going���it being largely for Fraser.  The returns from Phoenix and Grand  Forks, the only incorporated cities in  the riding, were out by eight, o'clock,  when it was known that Fraser received  a total of 346 votes, Clement 173 and  Riordan 232 votes in this riding  The officials returns from the five  polling stations in Grand Forks electoral district were as follows:  Clement.

What promises to be by far the  most important mercantile transaction  of this year in-British Columbia is now  being closed up here in Phoenix, and  is nothing less than substantial opposition, to P. Burns & Co., who now have  the Butcher business of the Kootenays  arid Boundary practically to themselves.  The naw company is tq be known  as the Union Meat Co., and on the  1 st of October started in business at  Fort McLcod, Alberta,.near the base  of cattle supplies. The four gentlemen interested are W. S. Macy, oT  Phoenix, and W. M. Law, James Kerr  and J. H. Flood of Greenwood. The  latter two were formerly in the same  business in the Boundary, as the Kettle  River-Dressed Beef Co., but sold out  to P. Burns.& Co. when'the C. P. R.  was built into the Boundary in 1S98.  Mr. MacY is proprietor of the Granby  hotel here,  At first three new shops will be  opened one each in Phoenix, Greenwood and Grand Forks, the locations  having already been secured, and some  of the shpps to be opened next week.  A site fdr Slaughtering "has been secured neir-thoeriix, wl^tjitce the Boundary shops' will be supbhed. Later  other shops will be 'opened,.\vhere it is  deemed lo be a good business prqpo-  PROVINCE   IS  CONSERVATIVE.  At first there was some doubt as  to the result throughout the province,  as to whether the Conservatives or  Liberals would control in the next  house, but When the final returns began coming in early this week, it was  evident that the Conservatives would  have a majority, even though small.  As it now stands, the Conservatives  will have 21 seats, the Liberals 18 and  the Socialists 2, with Labor 1, one being doubtful. Classified according to  party, here are the winners in the different constituencies:  CONSERVATIVES.  Atlin Dr. Young  Comox R. Grant  Dewdney  R. McBride  Esquimalt .C. E. Pooley  Grand Forks G. A.

Drury  "        ...,.,..    Aid. Cameron  Last Wednesday Anthony J.' McMillan, managing director of the Snow-  shoe Gold and Copper ' Mines, Ltd.j  arrived in camp ' fiom London, England, after an absence of five months.  On the trip from "the old country Mr.  McMillan travelled with George S.  Waterlow, vice-chairman of theSnow-  shoe company, who takes a deep personal jnterest. in .the progress andrsucs  cess of the Snowshoe, making an annual  visitof inspection to the mine, where  he is a most welcome visitor. However, Mr. Waterlow has been indisposed ever since leaving Toronto, being now in Vancouver, and expected in  Phoenix next week.  To a representative of the Pioneer  Mr. McMillan stated there was little  of real news to be said about the mine  at this time. It is shipping from 400  to 500 tons 'of ore daily,���all that the  customs smelters will handle. The  mine could easily ship a much larger  tonnage. Over 50,000 tons of ore have  been shipped from the mine so far  this year, and the returns had been  satisfactory.  In regard to the talked of amalgamation'with the B. C. Copper Co., in  connection with the smelter, there was  really nothing whatever to be said at  this time, and it is evident that no  definite steps have been taken, not-  witstanding the premature reports sent  out some time since from Greenwood.  Mr. McMillan expressed himself as  weil satisfied with the present condition and development of the Snowshoe,  which has been going on steadily for  some five years under Supt. Astley and  Foreman Trevorrow. Notwithstanding the increasing output, the mine  has been kept in such an advanced  state of development that today more  ore is available in the mine than ever  before.  For the next three weeks Mr.  McMillan will be back and forth between Rossland and Phoenix, after  which he and Mr. Waterlow will probably return to England.  c  Va.le.,,,..'.  TotaL 18.  Nanaimo...  Newcastle..  X  D. McNiven  Richard Hal!  S. Henderson  SOCIALISTS.  ..J. H. Hawthornthwaite    P. Williams  (Special to the Phoenix Pioneer )  Montreal, October 8���At the annual  meeting of the shareholders of the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting  and Power Co., Ltd., held at the company's office, Canada Life Building, in  this city, the old board of directors was  re-elected, as follows: S. H. C. Miner,  Jay P. Graves, John Stanton, Wm. H.  NichoIIs, A.C.Flumerfelt, A.L.White,  XV. A. Robinson, Jacob Langeloth, J.  H. McKecknie, Geo. Martin Luther,  Fayette Brown and C. S. Houghton.  Much enthusiasm was displa)ed by  the shareholders present at  the excellent results  accomplished  during  the  preceding  fiscal  year  in  the face of  many difficulties.    The statement submitted to the shareholders went  on to  say that the company's operations had  been greatly hampered by the difficulties v, hich had existed in  the coal and  coke situation, and which had necessitated the running of the smelting plant  at about  one half of its ordinary capacity.  These difficulties, the statement  said, were now overcome, and no  more trouble was anticipated in this  direction. 0  The company's smelting plant had  been increased by two furnaces, making six in all, which would be operated  full time from now on, in place of an  aveiage of two furnaces, as was the  case last year. The mines were now  de\eloped so as to produce a \ery  laige tonnage without further expenditure.  When the financial statement was  presented it showed the company to  be free from debt with the exception  of the ordinary monthly bills. The  production for the year ending June  30, 1903, amounted to 12,551,000  pounds of fine copper, 277,000 ounces  of silver, and 35,121 ounces of gold,  for which was received the sum of  $2,232,741.00, while the rents and  real estate sales brought in $38,51 r.oo,  making a total of $2,371,252.00.  The above represents  the  net pro-   ���  ceeds, as the freight to New York,  refining and all  other charges  are de- .'���'  ducted from the gross  receipts.    The  '  costs are put down as  follows:   Work-'  ing expense at the mine  and  smelter;  $1,136,830;   foreign   ore   purchased,  $72,954; foreign   material  purchased,  $766,004; making a total  of $1,975,-  7S9.    The net   profit    is,   therefore,,  $295,463,   which  together  with    the  s.irplus for the proceeding year brings'  up the total to $693,535:  During the year, there was expended  on new construction at the mines and  .smeller the sum of $207,000.  Thomas J.Hardy returned yestcrtfay  from l.el'uc, Alberta, where he util-  zed his old Greenwood Miner printing  plant by starting the Lei)uc Record,  in that prosperous little wheat town,  near Edmonton.

Davidson  Mr. Macy was interviewed yesterday  by the Pioneer and he stated that it  was not the intention of the company  to cut the price of meat to cost or anything of that kind, but they did intend  to do business wherever they thought  they could profitably do so, as a legitimate business enterprise. They now  have behind them a herd of some  30,00,0 cattle, in, \he northwest, with  the assurance that all the cattle,  sheep and hogs wanted would be supplied as fast as needed in any quantities.  i  Granby Mines, Phoenix       64,533  Snowshoe, ''         297  Brooklyn, "          150  Mother Lode, Dead wood      5,340  Sunset, '���    Morrison, "          ....

May  mantle fall on worthy shoulders. With  Joe Martin shelved, it has some  chance of so falling, anyway.  Col. E.obert T. Lowery will start a  weekly paper at Poplar Creek, which  it is to be hoped will be better appreciated than the late lamented Ozono-  gram,'' which had its birth and death in  Vancouver.  Now that the smoke of election battle has cleared away, it is evident that'  the Conservatives were winners, though  by a small majority, and that RicHard  McBride will, in all likelihood, continue to be premier.  George A. Fraser, member-elect for  this riding, received the goodly majority predicted for him. The probability is that he will receive a cabinet  portfolio, a just recognition of the  Boundary, which has for years been  the football of the politicians.  Joseph Martin was snowed under so  badly by the election that it is gratify-  ingly doubtful if he can ever be dug  out again, even by his hardest working  friends. The stormy petrel of politics  has at last come to the, end of his  tether in this province, so far as having  a direct voice in the house is concerned  and it is a good thing for the province,  A lease and bond has been given on  the Cripple Stick in the Slocan.  Boundary mines are now shipping  at about double the rate of those"'in  Rossland.  Frank Malcolm has taken a contract to develop the Ruth mine, in the  Slocan, and to run the mill.  Bernard Macdonald, formerly manager of the LeRoi, has bonded two  mines near Baker City, Ore.  A Carload ot ore per week is being  shipped for the Queen mine, near Sal-  mo, to the Nelson smelter.  T. G. Blackstock, of the War Eagle,  and Centre Star, Rossland, declares  he is ready to spend large sums on  concentration.  Two more locomotives have been  added by the C. P. R. to handle the  fast increasing Boundary ore and coke  business.  This week the new stamp mill in the  Eva, in the Lardeau, started dropping,  and is, expected to be kept running  steadily all winter.  , A trial shipment of four and a half  tons of ore froth the Canadian King  mine, near Salnio, was shipped last  Saturday to the Nelson smelter.  Last week the Republic mines shipped 50 cars of ore, as follows: Mountain  Lion, 32 cars to Hall Mines smelter;  Quilp, 12 cars,, to Tacoma smelter;  Knob Hill, two cars to Hall Mines  smelter; and Zala M, two cars to Hall  Mines smelter.  The company operating the Fisher  Maiden mine, on Four Mile, Slocan  lake, has been reincorporated as the  Fisher Maiden Mining Company, limited, with a capital of $150,000. The  shares are par at i o cents and the  company's life of existence is 50 years.  The ore shipments from the Ross-  lanxl camp for the week ending October 3rd were: LeRoi 5,970 tons; Centre Star, 1,170 tons; LeRoi No. 2, 480  tons; War Eagle, 870 tons; Jumbo,  168 tons, I. X. L.

THE OBSERVATORY  Things Talked op at  Home and Elsewhere  The Pioneer has been requested to  ventilate a disgraceful state of affairs  existing in relation to the, quarantine  lately re-established by the officials of  the Dominion government on trains  running between Grand Forks and  Marcus. In the following statement  the Pioneer man knows whereof he  speaks, as he was present at the time  referred to.  Do You  Take  THE PIONEER  You should if you don't. It gives the news  of the Boundary. It works for the Boundary. It is owned by the editor and not by  any clique or faction. It is worth $10.00.  It costs only $2.00.  ������t>��>���� ���*�����������*-���>���� *���������������+������*��'>  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Wells' Ambition���The day is not  long distant when Columbia, district  will have a Premier, and in the person  of W. C. Wells.���Golden Star.  On the 24th of September the quarantine against persons entering Canada  from the United States was put in  force on the Great Northern trains entering Grand Forks. XV. J. Cook, of  Grand Forks, is the officer who does  the business oh the trains. , It is to be  presumed that Mr. Cook acts accord:  irig to orders and is carrying out instructions. , If so, it is time that the  outrage, complained of should be  brought to the notice of the department, and the one who gave the orders  be given a calling down that would result in the use of a* little common  sense in the conduct of this important  department of the Dominion   service.  Last Wednesday, after the train left  Marcus, Mr. Cook went through, and  took the name of every passenger,  where bound, and where from, also  when he or she had been vaccinated  last. If not vaccinated at all, he or  she was required to be vaccinated then  and there on the train, and by a man  not a medical practicioner. Two  ladies were required to go through this  ordeal in the smoking ear, and when a  certificate was asked for, so that the  disgraceful and, to any woman of refinement, the humiliating scene might  not have to be repeated, it was supplied on payment of one dollar. Those  present assert that Mr. Cook did quite  a thriving business for a while, and  some one's treasury was enriched to  the tune of several dollars. One gentleman stated that he was not vaccinated, but that he was given a certificate on paying for the same.  i World Wide Mining |  ��.l...l ............ I M  In Montana the great Washoe smelter is again in full blast.  Georgia has gold deposits that have  been worked nearly a century.  A gold nugget worth $3,285 reach  ed Seattle from the Klondike.  '������ It is now said that the  streets of  Dawson are underlaid with gold.  The smelters at Aguas Callentes.  Mex., are treating 1,500 tons of ore  per day.  Mexico produced about 40,000 long  tons of copper in 1901 and 22,050  tons in 1900.  Copper consumption in France for  the seven months ended July 31,1903,  is reported at 25,971 long tons, as  against 30,404 during the correspond-  senev months of last year.  '��� Copper consumption in Germany  for the six months ended June 30,  1903, is reported at 38,308 long tons,  compared with 37,038 during the  corresponding period of last year.  The mineral output of Mexico is  placed at $130,000,000. Exports last  year amounted to gold, $23,283,000;  silver, $69,836,000; copper, $18,836,-  399; lead, $6,140,285; other minerals,  $837,000; total $118,935,000  Phoenix Home Brewed  W  BEER  .

The general impression that there  would be no large majority for either  party in the next legislative assembly,  seems to have been well founded,  from the results of last Saturday's  election. It would have been much  better had there been a more, decisive  majority for the Conservatives, or for  the Liberals had they gotten the largest  number of seats.  No Present Danger���A Canadian  premier once complained that he had  to sit on guard over the treasury with  a gun. It is different in British Columbia. There is nothing in the treasury to guard.���Nelson Economist.  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  October ZOtb It the Date.  W. Y. Williams, superintendent of  the Granby'mines of Phoenix, yesterday said that about October 20th it  was expected two new furnaces at  Grand Forks would be blown it, making six in all. This would necessitate  the increasing of the present output  of ore from 1200 to 2000 tons in each  24 hours. Speaking about the reported shortage of men in the Boundary, Mr. Williams said a short time  since men were scarce, but now he  had all he needed.���Rossland Miner.  Rock Drilling at Nelson.  There' were seven teams entered  from Ymir, Rossland, Greenwood  and the North Star mine for the'recent  rock drilling contest at Nelson. Ymir  boys captured first money by the very  narrow margin of a. quarter of an inch,  drilling 32^ inches. The Greenwood  team came 2nd with jzj^ inches and  one of the North Star teams >w?s in the  third place with 32 inches to tht'ijr credit.  The contest was. very close, as ���willf  be seen from these figures,  the first  four teams all coming within one inch  of each other.  There is no ambiguity in good advertising.  A word w;ith you Mr. Merchant���  "Advertise!"  It costs money to advertise���it costs  a darned sight more to stagnate.  The general public places put little  confidence in the advertiser who has  no confidence in himself.

When a traveller said that he had  jnst come from Rossland and that  nothing of the kind was in force on the  border there, he was told that the  authorities in Rossland were not  "wise" yet, with a significant smile.  The event was the talk of the entire  train of passengers, all of whom - were  most indignant at the slipshod methods  used and the indignities offered in the  name of the quarantine to the ladies  present.  w  No one complained at the fact of  the quarantine being established, but  they did at the absolute lack of what  appeared to be anything but graft in  the method of administration, which,  doubtless, was according to orders.  The utter uselessness of the entire  proceeding can be seen at a glance  Suppose there were some cases of  persons carrying smallpox germs on  their persons in that train,and suppose  every one of them were then and there  vaccinated. What was to prevent them  still bringing in the germs and distributing them all over the Boundary?  Not a single thing. Then, again, what  right has any deputy to sign a statement in the name of Dr.Westwood, of  Grand Forks, stating that a vaccination  performed a few minutes before was  successful? , Indeed, what right would  the doctor himself have to sign such a  statement until he had had the required  several days to determine the success  of the operation? What right has anyone to vaccinate except under the supervision of n competent physician?  What right have they to compel a  woman to disrobe and be vaccinated  by anyone except a qualified physician?  �����  For the sake of accuracy as to the  above state of affairs, the Pioneer refers  anyone interested to J. B. Boyle, of  Phoenix, and to C. S. Slawson of the  Hunter-Kendrick Co.,who were on the  train referred to, and can, if need be,  give the names of a; number of others  who were witnesses, as well as the railway and other officials on the tra'n-  If we are to have quarantine, lef us  have it in the name of common sense,  as well as in the so-called name of  health, and let us not make flesh of  one and fish of another, and treat  women ih the t ight manner.

The  ���Vil farmers have killed incredible  numbers of ,them by the help of  'a machine which Is,- perhaps, the most  effective ever devised for the purpose.  it;.-,is calle'ci a "hopperdozer," and Is  nothing more nor. less than a large flat:  pan, with a. small amount of kerosene  contained In a depression.in the.rear  part of, it. The contrivance, being attached to a-horse,.-is pushed along Iri  front of the animal as the latter is  driven across the fields. Pretty nearly  every grasshopper is encountered,  jumps upon the pan, and is promptly  suffocated by th�� kerosene.  1 TMs Ingenious Instrument has been  In use for a number of years in parts of  the West, but hitherto it has not occurred to the farmers to make any use  of the 3ead grasshoppers. Most com-'  monly they were burned, though some  more enterprising agriculturists turned  a portion ot them to account as poultry-  :'eed. They": found that the hens liked  them exceedingly; for: It'is a fact that  a grasshopper.is to''a hen what a can-  vasback duck'ls to a human epicure���  Che very choicest and most esteemed  of delicacies.  Hence the Idea which la now being  developed on a.commercial scale. The  grasshoppers, after being killed by the  hopperdozer, are left in winrows in the  fields, where they are soon dried. When  they- have been exposed, to the sun for  a sufficient time to reduce them to a  properly desiccated condition they are  gathered up with rakes, shoveled Into  carts, and conveyed to a shed, where  chey are put into a press somewhat resembling an ordinary cheese-press, and  converted:Into solid bricks.  The bricks are shipped in quantities  io poultry-raise.^.\yho find.this new  kind of hen-provettder most satisfac-  :ory, and they are anxious to get more  of it. Apparently, it is a great encour-  ager of egg-production.  It is not necesi-a; y to grind the bricks  before- feeding-the .stuff to the chtck-  >ns, but merely to break them Into  ;>leces and soften with water.  -TENTH  ANNUAL  INTERSTATE TAIR  MORE THAN 530,000 IN PREMIUMS  GREATEST ATTRACTIONS AND BIGGEST  AMUSEMENT FEATURES EVER SECURED,,  Agricultural Exhibits Stock Show Fruit Fair Mining Department Fine Arts Display EIGHT DAYS RACING  Over 300 horses entered Big event each day '$10,000 in  purses Down Town Street, Carnival Every Night .- Vaudeville Specialties and High Class Circus Features  special Low   Rales on All Railroads  Concession Privileges for Pale.
