James Green's Work.  Active Cons'ructlon Commenced at Hartford  Junction.  Late last week Tiernay, & Mcl'hail,  the C. 1*. R. conlract'ois, put a gang 0!  about 45 men at work on the grading  of the loop that is to be put in on tlu-  l'hoenix branch a'. Haitford Junction,  to do away with tlie switchback used  since the load was built. The woik  would have been siaited sooner, but  lor the fact that the C. P. R. officials  were >low,iii giving the final oideis to  go 011 with it, and in tlie meantime  some of the men had scattered.  The work to be done al iiaitfoid  Junction consists of about 1,600 feel  of grading, some of it being rock work.  If not more than I wo or three feet of  snow falls, Mi. Mcl'hail, who is in im  mediate chaige, thinks it will be com  pleted in about six or seven weeks.  Last Tuesday the work of grading  the extension to the Knob Hill spur  was completed aiiu the men tiansier-  red to Hartford Junction,  Altogether there has been about  2,000 feet.of woik done on the extension to this spui, it having been extended with a switchback so as to iuii  to the mouth ofthe Knob Hill tunnel.  The tiack will be laid without' further  delay by the C. P. R. track gang.  Tiernay and Mcl'hail also lately  secuied a piece of work in Kast Koote-  1,ay, wheie the C. P. R. is running a  spur about three miles to connect with  the Man sville smelter, being elected  by the Sullivan mine o-vners. This is  all light woik, however, and can be  done with scrapers. This week the  scrapers used in grading the s'reets'ol  I'hoenix this .summer, were shipped to  a point neai Marysville.

At this time James Hreen,  the we'l known smelter man, became  inteiested in the company, becoming  ihe manager, with J. 1.. I'arker as  local superintendent. It was generally  undeistood that Mr. Breen had agreed  to spend $100,000 or more in development andjiriythe��� construction of a  smelterJbr-thej-eduetion of the company's ores, in return'for which he was  to receive a large block of the com  pany's shares. As a matter of fact,  much morethan $100,000 was spent.  Work was prosecuted vigorously until  late this summer, when . o��e after  another of the properties were' closed,  upoii receipt 01" orders from Toronto,  the Brooklyn being tlie. last to shut  down, a lew. weeks ago. No .reason  was given out for this stoppage of  work, but it was understood that Air.  Br-en had had some iiusunderstqiidin^  .{���fitlvthe directors, of the company in  Toronto in regard to the location of  tlie proposed smelter. Hut while the  Biooklyn was closed, the pumps were  kept running, showing that it was not  the intention to close the pioperties  peimanently;  Joe Boss 00 the Scene.  In the meantime, J. B. j$os,��, of  Toronto,, who was laigely insUHiflejita!  jhree years iigo i'|is.ecipiiig ihe fgrm'a-  tjop of the Dominion Copper Co., and  in getting large capitalists in this city  inteiested, as well as several Botind-  aiy .shareholders,"arrived in camp, and  rs making his headquarters here for the  time being. Mr. Boss, however, will  not as yet give out the intentions ol  the company, although he is one of  the large stockholders.  l'he Dominion Copper  Co.   has  ;i|     ,  capital  of $5,000,000   in   five dollar 1  shares, the chief shareholders being I). .

Smith, Jai'in s  Breen, aiid Mayor G. ,\V. ���Rumberger  of  I'hoenix:-.   There   aie few   if any  small shareholders, it being practically  a close corporation.  'The six properties owned are the  Brooklyn, Idaho, Stemwinder, Montezuma, Rawhide and Standard, the city  ol Phoenix being located on the surface of a portion of four of these claims,  this constiuiiing a valuable .**sset ii* jt-  self. ' le is no secret that since Mr.  Hieen took hold the devtlo|)tHeiit has  been well up to the expectations of  those interested, and the properties  are worth much more today than they  The British Columbia Copper Co.  is one of the strongest of the corporations operating in the Boundary today,  the stock being owned largely by New  Yoik capitalists. Apparently tlie details of the transfer have already been  ai ranged, although not divulged as  yet, the deal hinging on the report of  Mr. 'Thomas, now on the ground.  Those most familiar with ihe propei-  ties under consideration have no doubt  as to the outcome of the repot t, as the  ���Urookly-i-'group'of' mines aiaR'a.1 ways-  stood among mining men as one of the  best gioup.s in the entire Boundary.  In addition to the above, those on  the inside asseit that, even if the nans  fer ofthe Bioolilyn group to the Biit-  jsh Colombia, Copper Co., through any  ipiloieseen cqntingencey, should mis  c.iriy, the pioperties will Stan again by  the time the new year gets around, 01  betoie, and will be operated by the  Dominion Copper Co. itselr to theii  fullest capacity. It will, therefore, - be  evident that the chance of adding permanently aiid materially to the payroll  of I'hoenix from the north side of Hie  hill in the near tuture is exceedingly  bright.  BOUNDARY MINING NOTES.  The Morrison mine iii Deadwood  camp is reported to have contracted to  ship two hundred tons of ore to the  Granby.smelter for 'experimental*purposes; ���  'Twenty men are employed at the  No. 7 mine, Central camp; under  Foreman Holman. - As soon as sufficient snow is available shipnients ot  ore to, the Qi\.eii\yood smelter will be  fesu.ni.ed. \i\ the nie.intime systematic  development continues on the property.  One of the converters at the Granby  smelter is expected to be in operation  about New Year's, one ol the new fur-  uace on January 1 jth, and the entire  enlarged plant will be in full blast not  later than Febuary ist,   treating   Irom  UB0E SALE FOR THE HOSPITAL BALL  To be 0 veo at Miners' Union   Hall,   Next  Tuesday Evening.  'Thus far everything points to the  ball, that will be given at Miners' Union Hall next Tuesany evening, as being a great success. 'The Miners1 Union has kindly donated use of the hall  for tlie occasion, and the event will  take place there, instead of at the hospital itself, as at first proposed.  'The tickets were placed un sale last  Saturday, and nearly every man in' the  city has availed himself of the oppoi-  tunity ol assisting iii.the^fuinishing Qf  the new"hospital' by' taking one or  moie. In several cases half a dozen  were disposed of to individuals, 'The  menibeis qt the Hospital Ladies' Aid  Society have taken hold of the matter  with a vim, headed by Mis \V. A.  1'orter, the piesident, and have been  doing most efficient woik lor the ball.  A meeting was held this week, and excellent piogress reported with the pic-  pal ations foi the notable event.  l'rof.

Work has been started, on   the  bri-  quetting plant al the Granby   smeltei,  which will have a capacity ol 100 tons  per day.    It is to be located adjoining  the sampling works,   and the   luiuida-  tions are now being laid.  i     In the course 01 smelting much dust  [���'accumulates in the big dust chambers,  this dust having  values in it.    Here-  tolore the dust has been   cleaned   out  ugh   the   menaces, again,  but it i.s hard  to   handle iii a satisfactory manner.     When  t'lie new plant is  completed.the dust will be inaue   intq  bricks   or   briquettes,   which   can   be  readily handled in this form  and   run  furnace  again   with   but  tittle loss or trouble.     This will be the  first plant ol the kind  installed  in the  Boundary.  Was a Very Light Case.  Alexander Milkie, an employee of  the Granby Co., was sent to the Greenwood hospital last week, and returned  apparently all light Monday evening.  Wednesday the company's; physician,  Dr. Uoucliei-j discovered that he had  a. very light attack of varioloid or  smallpox, and at once had hiui removed  to the isolation hospital. Every means  were promptly taken to prevent the  spread of the  disease  by  the   health  were a year ago, figuring simply on the officials, who now think they have the  quanty ol ore blocked out and ready mutter well in hand. Milkie has been  for sloping. A large amount of work in the employ of the Granby Co. for  was done this year on the Brooklyn, over a year.  Fire Department Ball.  A general meeting of the   members,  of the fire department  was   held   lasr  Wedensday evening in-the city council  chamber, for the purpose of arranging  for the firemen's   ball and   other; department matters,.

Gone to the Slocan.  Ralph L Clarke, who has made his  home in I'hoenix for the last tiyu years,  left by Wednesday'.! train .or Kaslo,  meeting Mrs. Clarke at Rossland.  Mrs. Clarke is one of the heaviest  owners of the Washington mine, in the  Slocan, wheie excellent galena ore  bodies have recently been discovered.  The mine is at present under lease to  J no. L. Retallack, also a stockholder.  The Clarkes expect to make theie home  in Kaslo for the present.  number of men now employed here  will be neaily doubled���and that in a  short lime, piobably within 60 days.  It is not a little interesting to figure  out���on a conseivative basis, of course  ���how this will happen. But when  the facts are once considered, it is not  difficult to see how the hopes of the  eaily settlers in this Camp aie about to  be realized. Heretofore the supply of  business concerns, as in so many other  places in the far west, has continually  kept ahead of .the growth in population; and this may be so in the future,  but nevertheless, in ihe next few  months there is every reason to believe that I'hoenix will experience a  substantial and permanent growth.  What Will Cause It.  At this point some figuies will prove  inteiesting. As is known to all, the  average daily shipments of ore from  this camp are now nearly 700 tons per  day, and the average number of men  employed at the Granby mines is  about 300. Estimating roughly, this  means about $1,000 per day, more or  Jess-,-in wages to ship*700'. tons:and do  the/necessary development also. This  would give'a cost of about $1.50 per  ton. It is probably a trifle less than  this.  It is equally well known that every  preparation is being made to double  the output some time in January, the  two additional turnaces to handle this  increased tonnage now being in course  of installation at the company's smelter  at Giand Foiks. 'These aie incon-  tiovertible farts as a basis.  Now, then, it is fair to assume that  the cost of getting out ore and keeping  up with development work will be  somewhat reduced by the increase of  the quantity handled each day. We  will suppose that with the use of the  steam shovel and the additional force  employed the cost is reduced one-  quarter, or say to'$!.i?}�� per ton for  development 'and extraction. 'This  would mean that for the getting out of  1,400 tons daily from the Granby  mines it. would require a force of at  least 500 men, providing all other conditions were favorable���or some 200  more men than are now in the employ  of the company in this camp. It  would mean an addition of about $^00  per day or $i8,000 per month.  Other Increases are Certain.  So much for the Granby mines.  'They are "not the only pebbles on the  beach," although by all odds the most  important ones at the present time.  Several other properties in and around  this camp are preparing to put on increased forces at an early date. 'The  Golden Crown has just started again,  and will increase the force at an early  date. 'The Winnipeg is working a  good sized force, and the Hartford is  expected to resume operations before a  great while on a permanent basis.  'The Snowshoe people have made improvements costing many thousands of I  dollars this fall, and the force at this'  mine will beyond a doubt be increased  to at least 75 men as soon as they can  be used to advantage.  likely go through; and if it does nor,  it is well understood that the properties will be worked anyway at once.  Iii other words,, the company has  already laige and valuable leserves of  ore, which are readily convertible into  cash, and it is the intention to do this,  as nearly as can be learned, "with but  little more delay. In, the Brook'yn,  Stemwinder and Rawhide many thousands of tons of ore can now be shipped that will run as well or better in  values as any property ,in this,. camp.  As Phoenix ore is self fluxing, requiring a minimum amount of coke to  turn it into matte, the smelters are  only too glad to make a favorable rate  for handling it. In fact, it is not atall  unlikely that the ore will go to the  Greenwood smelter, whatever the outcome of the present negotiations lor the  transfer ol the property. There are  already many thousands of tons on the  dump of the'Brooklyn alone.  If these properties are worked for  all that they are worth, it is safe to  say that they will ship not less than  ^ay-aoa.tQns.perl dayy *hich-rate,\it is  said, could be easily maintained. As  the facilities for getting it out and  handling it are not so complete nor so  labor saving as those, at the Granby  mines, where there are also large glory  holes or open quarries, the cost pei  ton will "probably be somewhat larger  for the time being for extraction and  development. For the sake of argument call it $2 per ton, and we find  that it will require 115 men to get it  out. Should it be decided to ship a  greater tonnage the number of men employed would be proportionately larger.  Over 300 More Men.  It is believed that the "foregoing '���  estimates are not out of reason or in'-'  any way overdrawn. If they are conservative, the following table will show  the additional number of men likely  to be employed in our mines within  the nexl two or three months, and also  the increase of monthly payroll that  will result:  ADDITIONAI.  ADUITrONAr.  MEN.  PAYROLL.

'The reader may discount them if he so  desires and the showing is still an ��.\-  cellent one. It amounts to this. In  all human probability the payroll of  this camp will reach the very respectable total'of about $75,000 per month  before the winter is out, and probably  much sooner. It took .Rossland eight  or nine years to reach the highest  point in this regard yet attained. By  the time I'hoenix.is-of an equal age,  this camp will have far exceeded the  record that Rossland can show today.  As it is, actual shipments from these  n\ines have only been going on lor  about sixteen months.  New Paper for East Koolenay.  'The fit!jt iss.t'e of (he Marys��ille  Tiibtpie, published by Simpson &  Hulcliison in the new smelter town of  Marysville, jiast Kootenay, is at hand.  It is certainly a most creditable sheet  for a town three weeks old.

In Phoenix  the last year has not been one of  , remarkable prosperity, and yet there  has been a steady progress ih everything that tends to the permanence of  the city and camp. Among other  things that Phoenicians should be  thankful.for this year are the following :  That Jim Hill has definitely decided  to'have his line reach this canip, with  or without the assistance of the provincial government. ,,  That the city has graded streets, and  ' a good water system, the latter now  fast approaching completion.  " That Joe Boss, or some one equally  influential, is negotiating a deal with  the Dominion Copper Co., soon to be  brought to a successful termination/by  which probably from 100 to 200 men  will be added to the payroll of the  camp. , ' ;      .    .  - That, the .Gwnby, Co., paying no  attention to its captious critics, has  steadily gone1 about its business of  'making every ton of oie shipped pay a  profit, arid that {his company will soon  be sending out' from 1,200 ,to 1,500  tons of ore daily, to the smelter, necessitating the employment of from 150  to 250 more men.  That labor, troubles, that have  touched many other camps in British  Columbia, have thoughtful'y left  Phoenix alone���due to the1 levelheadedness* of both mine managers and  ' iTiiriers.���*--^-"^-  That we have churches enough for  the entire church going population of  the Boundary.   ! - , '  . That no city in' British .Columbia  "has today a brighter future before it.  share of the tonnage. The C. P. K.  was at first slow to appieciate the pos  sibilities of the Kootenays, but since it  awoke to the real situation it has been  in the fore front to afford transportation and incidentally, il* possible, to  shut out'its American rivals.  Without railways Biitish  Columbia  would still be a wilderness, given over  to a  few, hardy  pioneer  prospectors,  whose chief stock  in   trade  is  hope.  With railways it is fast becoming one  of the great ore pioducing sections of  the  American  continent.    Let them  all come if they will,  especially . when  they seek   no subsidy  for  building.  The sooner the better for the country.  Our low'grade ores, here  in such vast  quantities, will not stand a long haul,  but our blister copper, gold   bars  and  pig lead will.  EDITORIAL COMMENTS.  Silver is lower in price today than  at any time this year. The copper  maiket is clearing up.  MORE RAILWAYS WANTED.  , The Great Northern railway, realizing the vast' tonnage to be hacl from  Phoenix and the Boundary,- through  the V., V. land E. charter is making  an effort to tap this camp and section,  and no one doubts for a minute . that  ,the Jim Hill line will eventually be  successful in the undertaking, notwithstanding the present vexatious delays.  But there is a section of the press of  the province that cannot see why the  Jim Hill line should be allowed to  come in here, and along this line the  patriotic and ���a few other crys are  raised. Then they also point out that  by the organization of the Northern  Securities Co. recently, the avowed  object of which is the control of the  Northern Pacific, Great Northern and  Canadian Pacific railways, the competitive feature is eliminated.,, And  therefore, we should have no more  railway lines in British Columbia, except b)\ the grace of the C.,,P. R-  What mbbish.  We should like to ask the merchants  of Nelson, Rossland or Vancouver, if,  in view of the proposed control of  interests of the three great transcontinental lines referred to, they would  like to see any one of them shut out  cf their territory. The question  answers itself, In any event, railways  always make common rates to common  |>oints, even if entirely independent of  each other, so that the consolidation,  if effected, will not make much if any  difference.  It was the building of the Great  Northern railway into Nelson and  Rossland that spurred the C. P. R. to  Also reach those points and secure a  Redistribution has been a'campjign  slogan in the interior for the last five  years. * Appearances now indicate* that  it will bear fruit at no distant date.  If you are not qualified and regis  tered by tonight with the city clerk,  you cannot vote at the municipal election in January. This is the last day  of grace.  The servant girl problem  is  sorely  troubling the good  people of Winnipeg, who have not even  the question  able alternative of employing  freshly  arrived Asiatics.  It is said that the Hon, Mr. Mulock  has decided that lawyers' biiefs must  pass through the mails as "fust class  matter," and pay postage accoidingl).  This accords with the eternal fitness  of things, the fees marked on the  biiefs being in geneial "fust-class"  also.���News-Advertiser.  ���M  Iii last issue of the Canada Gazette  appears the leappoinlment of Judge  Leamy as a judge of the County couit.  The wording of the notica is : "His  Honor Andrew Leamy, judge of the  County couit ot-Kootenay, in the province of British Columbia, to be a  judge ot the County court of Yale in  the Province ot British Columbia  aloresaid." From this it is still a disputed noint, whethar Judge Leamy  has authority to take County couit  work within the County of Kootenay.  The average editor in a mining em-  biyo is also business  manager,  entei -  tainer (he has not always  time  to  be  sociable,) printer, pressmen, the solici  tor, "sub," lustier,  collector,   mailing  man, and head devil of the establishment.

And it  makes it no easier because Mr. Dunsmuir is interested in the Colonist."  A prominent resident of Phoenix  made the assertion in the Pioneer office  this week that he believed inside of  three"months business would be better  in Phoenix than ever before in' its  history.u May he be a true prophet.  The decision of the Judicial Com  mittee of the Privy Couccil that the  Manitoba Prohibitory law is within  the jurisdiction ofthe local legislature,  is of the greatest importance, The  case came from Manitoba, and there  is no'further appeal.  Rossland, Nelson and Boundary are  trying to form' a hockey league. Sandon, will play the best team they can  turn out or any combination they want  to make, for money, fun or marbles.���  Sandon Pavstreak.  It looks as though the Sandon boys  could be accommodated to the King's  taste right here in Phoenix.  The "Order of the Midnight Sun,"  intended to found a republic for three  weeks in the Klondike during the  closeseason this winter, and in the  meantime do a general looting business, died before it was born, due to  the vigilance of the United States and  Canadian authorities. The time has  passed for such exploits.  Undoubtedly the hospital ball, to be  given next week, will be well patronized,  for every one in Phoenix is interested  in seeing our new and commodious  hospital opened at the earliest possible  date���the only geneial, non-sectarian  hospital in the Boundary country.  Every one should encourage the Hos  pital Ladies' Aid Society to raise the  funds for the furnishings.  WHAT THE   EDITORS SAY.  Coast politicians have just discover  ed that Joe Martin holds the  life' of  the present government in his hand  ThiS is the same Joe Martin who was  recently dead.���Sandon Paystreak.  McDonald, of Le Roi fame, has  stepped down and out. He became  famous for his futile efforts to belitltle  labor and place the wage earner on a  plane far below the man who profits by  the, industry of Jabor.���Cranbrook  Herald.  J. M Kellie, politically deceased,  has much to say of the mijjjons of  dollars and millions of acres of land  grants which have been squandered in  this province by past governments,  nearly all of which, strange to say, were  supported by Mr. Kellie while -representing a large poition of the interior  at Virtoria-n-rLardeau Eagle.  The mining business does mt seen  to be so much of a painble as it used  to be. Today the cautious investoi  has many ways of proving a property's  worth. The geneial conditions of the  foimation, the well defined mineinl  belts, and modern appliances for the  analysis of roclc, all go to secuie a  guarantee to the investor that he is at  least getting a fair chance for his  money. Mining men, when they want  to, can pretty near tell what they aie  buying. The great difficulty is that  inexperienced middle men are too  often out with rthe long milt, totally  disregarding the precautions necessaiy  for making safe investments, and heie  in lies the danger. To practical mining men/mining is no longer a puie  gamble; it is a.legitimate and honest  means of securing wealth.���Lardeau  Kagle.         BRITISH COLUMBIA MINING NOTES.  Sandon   ore   shipments last  week  amounted tp "84* tons.    * *���   *  ' Last week's shipments froin  Rossland were 5,500 tons.  Operations are to be resumed at the  Harlney, New Denver.

The tickets will doubtless sell  well.  The Eastern Townships Bank will  move to its newjocation in the Bank  block this afternoon, and be'ready for  business Monday morning.
