EMBER SHOWING BETTER STORY  Evsry Reason for Thinking Th it lhe Year'*  Tofal Will Exceed 500,000 Tons���Good  Results From Now On.  Itelow will be found a table showing  the reeoid of Boundary ore shipments,  by months, tor the first nine months  of 1902, which shows that nearly 350,-  000 tons of oie have been shipped so  far this year by Boundary mines and  have been reduced in Boundary smelters. The table is interesting, as it  shows which were the best months for  tonnage, and how the^tonnage was affected in the summer when the smelters' coke supply was shut off for a few  w. eks by the Fernie strike. If an average of about 50,000 tons monthly is  kept up (or the balance of the year, the  year's total will be above 500,000 tons.  Tons.

Last Sunday Wm. H. Nicholls, president of the Nicholls Chemical Co., of  New York was a visitor in Phoenix,  being accompanied by Jay 1'. Graves,  general manager of the Granby Co.  The Nicholls Chemical "Co.," 'through  f,edoux tS|f. Co., handle all the blister  copper coming from the Boundary,  and refine the same, extracting the gold  and silver values. The concern is the  largest in the world of its kind, employing thousands of woikmen, with works  at Patersun, New Jersey.  This was the first visit of Mr. Nicholls to the Granby mines, and he was  shown through the pioperties by Wm.  Yolen Williams, the superintendent.  He was, of course, much pleased to see  the systematic and economical manner  in which the mines weie being woiked.  Mr. Nicholls travelled in apiivatecar,  which was furnished by the C.  P.  R.,  Grading of the new i,8po-foot spur  for the Snowshoe mine is practically  completed, and the laying'of the steel  will soon be started.  In Summit camp the Emma is sending out about four cars of ore daily to  the Nelson smelter, which concern's  officials now have charge of the prop-  eity.i  An important find was made on the  Piovidence this week, which jt is said  greatly enhances the value of" that already high grade and much thought of  property.  XV. T. Smith and R. T. Longley  have taken a wotking lease, with an  option to purchase, on the Republic  group in Smith's camp. The claims  are promising, one of them having been  located by Mr. Smith 16 years ago. He  expects to arrange to ship ore to one  of the local smelters at an early date.  Porter Bios, expect to[ begin the  actual getting out of ore for the Granby  mines some time this 1110(111)���as soon  as it can be handled by the new ore  ci usher, which is expected iqjirrive almost any day. On their surface stripping work they are making1! good progress, using two separate steam engines  and wire trams on the Knob Hill side  hill. 1.  On the 15th of September the first  halt of the 60 drill air co'mpressoi,  oidered last summer by tji6 Gianby  Co., was shipped fiom the-jrnakers at  Sherbrooke, Quebec. - It should be received some time next weelt, when the  work of installation will <be started  without delay, so as to have the big  machine ready for use when the power  from Cascade can be utilized. The  second half of the compressor will be  manufactured at once, and follow the  first half with little'delay.'  $25,000 FROM  PHOENIX  Greenwood Wants It For the  Tramway.  OVER A MILLION TONS THIS YEAR.  EXPECT, TO GIVE $75,800 THEMSELVES  Resolutions Passed by Greenwood Council  Along These Lines���Would Also Absorb  Suburb of Anaconda.  STEMWINDER SOLD FOR ,$800,000.  Falrtitw Mine Boujht by Eifllsh Capital,  ists.  A report from Fairview is to the  effect that the property of the New Fair-  view Corporation, Ltd., has been sold  in England for $800,000, of which $50,-  000 is to be paid down,. $350,000 in  three months, and the balance later.  This-information-has tiorycJ bstn-ofli-  cially confirmed, but it is regarded as  probable that the deal known to have  been in negotiation for some time past  has now been closed.  The company's chief mining property is the Stemwinder, which has levels  opened at 100, 200 and 300 feet, respectively, and which have developed a  big body of quartz ore. At the 300  foot level this has been yielding ore  stated to have averaged $10 a ton from  a 30 foot shoot. 'Ihe deepening of the  main shaft is now in progress, a depth  of about 200 feet below the station on  the 300 foot level having been reached.  Values are gradually   improving  with  having quite a party with liim, includ- de*)th- a l2 foot bcdv of ore  running  ing his family,   who  came  as  far as  Grand Forks.  Government Paid $40-4.05.  Secretary Matheson, of the school  board, received a check Thursday from'  the provincial government for $404.05,  being the quarterly grant for the term  ending September 30th last, for the  Phoenix public school. The last quarterly grant amounted to $350.60. The  grant is based on the actual average  attendance of 9.091 J-2 for tbe'previous  half year, at $5 per scholar, the rate  for cities of the third class. The cost  of conducting the school is about $35  per month more than the latest amount  received from the government, the city  having to find the difference. It is  probable that the next, payment will be  a little larger, owing to increase of  tendance,  from $8 to $20, no assay giving less  than $8. The mine is considered to  look better now than at any previous  time. Next week it is intended to start  dropping 20 moie stamps, this number  having lately been added lo those here-  ���ofore in use. Charles Ostenburg is  pushing on with the work of installing  the cyanide plant, and it is expected to  have this ready for operation within  six weeks.  The members of the city council of  Greenwood have not by any means forgotten the Greenwood-Phoenix tramway project, and have adopted a set  of resolutions to test the feeling of the  people in regard to issuing debentuies  to carry through the scheme. * They  propose" to sell #75,000 worth of Greenwood bonds, and would very much like  to have the city of Phoenix sell $25,000  in bonds for the same purpose. Whether the neople of Phoenix will favor the  plan $25,000 worth remains to be  seen.  The fellowing resolutions were passed by the council of Greenwood at its  last meeting, dealing with the mattei:  "Whereas, the municipal council of  the city ol Greenwood has been considering for some time the advisability 1  of constructing a tiamway between  Greenwood and Phoenix, and to other  points;  "And, whereas, from the data gathered by the council it is deemed advisable to proceed with the constiuc-  tion of the said tramway;  "And, whereas, in the opinion of the  council the said tramway will be advantageous to Greenwood, Phoenix  and Anaconda;  "Therefore, be it resolved, that,  upon the necessary petition being te-  ceived from the ratepayers, this council will submit a by-law to the said  ratepayers to raise by way of debentures the sum of $75,000 for the  conduction of the said tiamway to  Phoenix;  "And be it fuither resolved, that  the municipal council of the City of  Phoenix be requested to submit a bylaw to the ratepayers of that city to  raise by way of debentures the sum of  .��25,000 to aid in the constiuction of  the said tiamway;  "And be it further resolved that the  lesidents of A'iaconda be requested to  lake the necessary steps to secuie the  mnexation of Anaconda to the municipality of the city of Greenwood, so that  they may contribute a fair share of the  cost of construction of the said tramway;  "And be it further resolved that  copies of this resolution be forwarded  to Mayor Geo.W. Rumberger, of Phoenix, and T. A. Garland, of Anaconda."  Beiug Taken from Kootenay and Yale Mines  lo 1904.  Over a million tons of ore  will  be  mined during 1902 in the various camps  scattered thioughout East and  West  Kootenay districts and the southeastern  corner of Yale district, says the Nelson  Tiibune.    The ore carries gold, silver,  copper, and lead, and runs all the way  fiom $3.75 to $200 a  ton  in  values.  The bulk of it is smelted  at Nelson,  1'iail, Grand Forks, Greenwood, and  boundary Falls, towns situated in Brit-1  ish Columbia and within easy reach of  the mines.    The tonnage that  is  not  smelted at the above-named  placeb is  shipped to smelters at Northport, Everett, Tacoma, and San FrancLco, in the  United States.     A   considerable  percentage of the total is classed as   free-  milling gold ore, and is treated at stamp  mills at the mines.'  The smelter at Nelson is running  two lead stacks; the Trail smelter is  running one lead stack and two copper  furnaces; the Grand Forks smelter has  four copper furnaces, the Greenwood  smelter two, and the Boundary Falls  smelter one.  A smelter is under way at Marysville,  in East Kootenay, and advices from  there aie that it will be in operation by  the middle of November. The capacity of the smelter at Giand Foiks is  to be increased by two furuaaes, which  will make six in all, with a daily capacity of about 2,000 tons. The Greenwood smelter, it is also said, is to be  increased by two fuinaces. The smelter  at Boundary Falls will add another  fumace at once, ,as it has contracted to  treat 200 tons of Snowshoe ore a clay  for lhe remainder of this year, and 400  tons a day next year.  These smelters draw a small percentage of their ore supplies from the mines  at Republic, Washington, a camp that  is taliped by both the Canadian Pacific  and Great Northern railways or con  necting lines. In time, iris just possible, that the oie tonnage now going out  of Biitish Columbia to smelters in the  United Stales will be offset by the ore  tonnage coming from Washington  mines to smelters in British Columbia.

The meeting is for the purpose of electing officeis for the ensu ng  year, and to hear the' reports of the  managers and othr.r officers of progress  made during the last year���the first  full year that the consolidated company  has been operating.   ���  Severaljof the officials residing in the ���  west are now on the way to  Montreal  to be present at the meeting, including  General Manager Graves and  his assistant, A. C. Flumeifelt.    .  Probably more progress has been  made during the last twelve months'  than .during any preceding year that  the properties have been worked. During this period the smelter has been increased in capacity from 750 tons'daily  to 1,500 tons, a converter has been  added, and over $100,000 wtirth of  machinery has been added to the mine  equipment in Phoenix, or is now in the  process of manufacture. It is believed  notwithstanding the low price of copper, and the temporary cessation of  operations occasioned by the troubles -  at the coal mines at Fernie, whence  ihe fuel supply is obtained, that the  repotts will be of a most satisfactory'  nature, though, of couise, not as satis-  lactory as they would havo been had  not these unlooked for conditions pre-'  vailed.  at-  Attention, Ladies.  We would like to call your attention to  the fact that you can buy your Fall and  Winter Hats in Phoenix cheaper and  better than to send east for them. Mc-  Kenzie & Hambley, milliners, 0!

Their record is 24^ inches in 10'minutes,  while the prize last year was taken by a  much lower record. The boys' team  from Rossland will ajso probably enter  iri, the same com.petitjo.11,  Signs of Improvement.  Some months ago the Midway Dis-.  patch was cut down in size from six to  five columns to the page. As an indication of the general trend of improvement of business conditions in  the Boundary, it is pleasing to note  that the Dispatch has once more resumed its six column form, which that  paper says is due to the increased advertising patronage. Mr. Crouse is  making an interesting weekly, and deserves his success.  New Stage Line to Nelson, Wash.  Beginning next Monday, the Palace  Stable will run a stage daily to Nelson,  Wash., to connect both ways with the  Great Northern trains to and from Spokane, John Collins will handle the  libbons to start with, and will leave  Phoenix at 7 a. m. As the Spokane  Interstate Fair opens next Monday  there will probably be considerable  travel, and after the close to the fair,  if the business warrants it, the line will  be continued.  Fruit Comes 120 Miles.  Much of the fruit being marketed in  Phoenix this fall is brought from the  American Okanogan, a distance of  some 120 miles. It is of good quality,  and is brought that distance, from the  banks of the Columbia river, in wag*,  ons. The dealers generally m,ake one  trip to the Boundary each \yeek, and  seen; to find, a ready market for their  products.  Northwest is Booming;  John A. Morrin, senior member ol  the firm of Morrin, Thompson & Co.,  returned late last week from a several  weeks' visit to Calgary and other points  in the northwest, where he has a brother. Mr. Morrin states that that section was never so prosperous as it is  today. Many new settlers are coming  in there constantly, and next year an  even larger influx is looked for. Thousands have arrived this year, and they  all bring a little money. Crops art-  good, prices are excellent, and general  business in all lines is the same.  Eagles Went Down Again.  Last Sunday another game of base  ball was played between the Granby  team and that of the Eagles on the ball  grounds. This time the score was some  better for the Eagles than the previous  week, the total being 27 runs for the  Granbys and 14 for the Eagles. Messrs.  Hemenway and Williams again acted  as umpires, and many wonderful plays  were made. Arrangements are making  for a third game, if possible, tomonow.  pita I this week, suffering from an affection of the heart, the physician having  ordered complete rest.

Harry Dudley Had Qood Houees. -  The experiment which Harry Lind-  ley tried, for thefiist time in Phoenix,  of foui consecutive peifonnances,.which  ended Wednesday evening, turned out  a success. Saturday night "A Miner's  Child" was given to a large audience.  Monday, "Little Lord Fauutleioy"  was on the boards, and Tuesday night  a double bill, "Dora," arid "The Wea-.  vers" was given. Wednesday night the  popular dramatization of "David Har-  uni," was put on, and the house was  crowded to the doors. .  There are fifteen people in the company, and they did good work, the  acting of Harry Lindley himself being  much better than the average. Popular prices prevailed at Miners' Union  Hall, where the show^ were put on, and  Mr. Lindley thinks that Phoenix is a  good show town. The company is now  billed at Gieenwood for a week.  Came Will Suffer.  Tuesday morning Mayor Rumberger  and W. J. Porter started on a camping  and hunting trip up the main Kettle  river, and they will also strike the  West Fork before returning-next week.  They went loaded for all kinds of.game,  taking along a couple of pack horses to  bring it in. Their friends'confidently  look for a good sized depletion in the  game preserves of the section visited  by the time they get back to   Phoenix.  Life and'Health.

A few days ago a new method of  smelting was tested at the new Crofton  smeiter,.pn Vancouver Island, that, it  is claimed, will revolutionize the present system of smelting, and will be  particularly beneficial to low grade  propositions. The new process is accomplished in what is known as the  Garretson pyntic furnace, and it accomplishes in one process that which  requires three or four processes in ordinary smelter practice.  In ordinary blast furnace smelting  the / ore is crushed, roasted, smelted  into niatte of about 50 per cent purity,  and then bessemerized into blister copper 98 or 99 per cent pure. In Boundary smelting, the ores being self-filux-  ing, it was found that roasting was not  required, but the ore from many other  copper districts is not self-fluxing and  must be roasted before being placed in  the blast furnace. But the Garretson  furnace performs all these processes at  one operation, as it Were���something  that metallurgists - of the most extensive smelting exjierience have heretofore considered an impossibility. By  this remarkable invention the charge  goes into the furnace without roasting  or further treatment, and the result is  blister copper of the highest grade, all  ready for the refiners.  At the test recently made at Crofton  besides officials of the Garretson Furnace Co., of Pittsburg, Pa., owning the  patents for the United States and Canada, there were present, among others,  representatives of at least one Boun-  . dary smelter, who are consideiing the  adoption or trial of the Garretson furnace.    It is evident that if, as now  "claimed, the Garretson furnace has  been demonstrated to be a commercinl  ^success, it will revolutionize smelting  and mining in the Boundary. Its.  economy of operation brings within the  range of profitable handling whole  mountains of Boundary ore that are  now comparitively worthless.  "The Garretson  furnace  has never  been a successful commercial operation, but sufficient   experiment   has  been made to show that we are sure of  the ground.    The  furnace  has  been  built for   several   smelters, but none  have been in operation up to the pres  ent.   The first we constiucted was for  a mine in  Mexico, but the  plant was  held in  quarantine so   long that  we  got  tiled, and  built  another at Ely,  Vermont, to work on  ore dumps containing one per cent of copper.   Our  experiments there were  quite satisfactory! but we were obliged  to abandon  the place, owing to the sale of the  property we were working on.

IM  CITY SCAVENGER  Leave Orders at City  Clerk's Office  j*j*j*  PHOENIX, B. G.  "The next furnace was built for  Colorado people, but we found that  it was only secured for stockjobbing  purposes, although we had been assured that they had the right ore. Another was built for a mine in California, but that got tied up in litigation  and the furnace-is still' sidetracked at  Buffalo. The next furnace was built  for a mine in North Carolina which  has been shut down for twenty years,  and we intended working on a dump  of ore containing one and six-tenths  per cent copper. But the arrangements were bad, the water supply /insufficient and the buildings were not  constructed as they"had been planned.  Mr. Bellinger came down when the  plant was ready, and we were in a  hurry to get to woik and used soap-  stone for the bottom of the fui nace.  We got one run out of it and then the  trouble begun. During a six hours'  run we put throngh 49* tons of ore,  using only 2 per cent of coke. Bui  conditions were not altogether satisfactory and we decided to erect another furnace at Crofton, here in British Columbia, * on the plans of the  Northwest Smelting and Refining company, which Mr. Bellinger kindly placed at our disposal.  "The furnace itself is a rectangulai  shaft furnace, 38 inches wide and 161  inches long inside. The height of the  jacket is 9 feet io*4 inches, with a  number ol 2-inch smelting tuieres. Its  capacity is 360 tons in 24 hours.  Lower the Duties���The model  government is one which equalizes the  system of taxation upon the citizens of  the country. The people of this pio-  vince pay more per head than the residents of any other province. The  Dominion government is in a position  to correct this state of affairs by abolishing or lowering the duties on mining  necessities. Will it give us simple justice ?���Rossland Miner.  PROVINCIAL NOTES  "The patent in the United States is  held by the present company, the Gar-  reston Furnace company of Pittsburg.  The Garreston Southern, a subsidiary  company, holds the rights for soma of  the southern states, and the Pittsburg  and Montana company have the rights  in Montana. The Garretson Foreign  Patents Co., control the patents in  Chili, Australia, England, Spain and  other foreign countries, with the exception of Mexico, where it is controlled by the Garretson-Mexico Co. The  rights in British Columbia are held by  Pittsburg people in connection with  Mr. Bellinger and his associates. The  parent company is organized on a  nominal capital, the inventors holding  half the stock."  The Are chiefs' convention meets --it  Victoria October 10th.  Two inches of snow fell in Rossland  last week���the earliest in years.  Trains will soon be running south  with coal from Morrissey.  Plans have been prepared by the C.  P.

Thompson, accountant for the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co., well known  in the Kootenay and Yale, died last  week at Cranbrook.  Senator Templeman declares that  the Slocan mine owners say they want  a cut on the tariff, not an incicase of  lead bounties. Others desire the in  crease.  The Victoria Times says that the  statement that the election petition  against Colonel Prior will be dropped  is incorrect. It is expected that the  hearing of lhe case will come on about  December.  Not only does the new type of furnace mahe a large saving because several processes are combined in one,  but another saving is made , in the  small amount of fuel required���generally no inconsiderable item in itself.  The further claim is made for the Garretson process, that by it the slag losses are less than one-twentieth of those  made in the ordinary smelter piactice.  " In short, so many claims are made for  this new furnace, that,' ere long, if it  stands the test, Garretson furnaces  should dot the landscape from the  Kootenays to the coast, wherever $3 or  $4 copper ore can be found in sufficient  quantity.  The "Beautiful Snow" poet has not  put in his appearance at the Pioneer  office yet. When he arrives .he'll find  the devil lying in wait for him.

Here it is, Senator, Give the  mining industry every possible lift, instead of a kick now and then. Tax  net profits, cut down the duties, and  you will be surprised at the result.  Brains and money properly mixed  with printers' ink turn dullness into  prosperity.  Hard work and personal effort are  absolutely necessary in successful ad��  vertising.  To al! things there is a time and a  season, except advertising, which is a  three hundred and sixty-five day in the  year article.  Some advertisers are always trying  to kill a flea with a cannon while others  are trying to blow up a battleship with  a bean shooter.  The article which produces well is  an article which is advertised well.  Good advertising is both sunlight and  rain to any business plant.  It's a pretty safe proposition to beware of the man who never advertises.  If he's not progressive in his advertising he's pretty apt to be unprogressive  in what he has to sell.  FREE.
