Borden, leader of the  opposition in the House of Commons  at Ottawa, made but one stop in the  Boundary, owing to press of time, and  last Monday evening spoke to one of  the largest audiences that ever gathered  in the Grand Forks opera house, Hon,  Richard McBride, premier of British  Columbia, was with Mr. Borden at  Nelson, but on receipt ol a telegram  from Victoria, returned immediately to  the capitol, and there were many expressions of regret at his enforced absence. J. G. H. Bergeron, however,,  was with him and made an address  that captivated the hearers, and gave  them much food for thought.  A special C. P. R. train was run  from Greenwood to Grand Forks, returning after the meeting, but no  arrangements were made for this from  Phoenix. Notwithstanding this, however, many from Phoenix were there,  some going to Greenwood, others  going down on the regular C. P. R.  afternoon train, while at least three  parties drove over the mountains, a  round trip of some 35 miles, to hear  the Conservative leader. One Conservative travelled from Hedley, over 100  miles, and another from Camp Mc-  Kinney, over 50 miles, to hear Mr.  Borden.  After the meeting the general  opinion was that it will be fraught with  good to the Conservative cause throughout the Boundary, with many auguries  of success for the Conservatives at the  next appeal to the people by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, which is expected shortly  after the next session of the house  closes.  Earnest Miller was chairman of the  meeting and' introduced"the several  speakers. Martin Burrell was thp. first  to take the floor, arid, in a ten minute  speech, after telling how close he himself came to winning in Yale-Cariboo,  with all the machinery and prestige of  the Laurier government arrayed against  him in a gerrymandered election in  1904, gave way to his leader, Mr.  Borden.  Mr. Borden'* Speech.  Mr. Borden was received with prolonged    cheers,   and    expressed   his  pleasure at being  present and at the  large number of ladies that turned out  to hear him and his   fellow   traveller.  He took up several of the  issues  that  are before the people, turning  first to  Better   Terms,    which   he   said   Mr.  Templeman  endeavors  to   have   the  people   believe   is   a   dead  issue  in  British Columbia.    He paid a  tribute  to    Premier    McBride,    unavoidably  absent, for his persistency in his efforts  to secure Better Terms from the Dominion for this province.    He had always been himself a   strong   supporter  of the Better Terms idea, and believed  that   the   Ottawa  government  should  deal  not   only justly   but  generously  with the far western   province  in this  matter.  Referring to the fact that no supporters were elected at the last general  elections, he said that evidently Sir  Wilfrid Laurier had little respect for  the members that were elected from  British Columbia���Liberals���for when  he wanted a cabinet minister from  this province, he passed them all over  and chose a gentleman from the  senate.  Mr. Borden had nothing to withdraw  regarding his position   on   the  Grand  accusing him of appropriating. In  place of that, he asserted that the Grits  had stolen thd Conservative policy.  They recently spent $-50,000 in a  junket over the Dominion, to get data  for a revision of the tariff, and little  came of it. ^  The opposition leader also took up  Civil Service Reform and showed how  urgently it was'needed, so that em  ployees of the government of undoubted integrity and ability should j  not be forced to give place to party  supporters of doubtful qualifications.  Election crimes,! and the efforts to  punish the criminals were dealt with,  and it was clearly shown how the  Laurier governrijent had effectively  burked all inquiries cf this nature.  Mr. Borden spoke for an hour and  a quarter, and closed with an appeal  to the electors to register their protest  against the abuses of power by the  Laurier government by sending a solid  delegation from.���'..���; British Columbia.  He is a pleasant arid deliberato speaker,  without any of the silver tongued business. , His words could hardly fail to  carry conviction to a thoughtful hearer.  Wit ol Mr. Berjeron.  Mr. Bergeron was next introduced,  and for more than an hour he entertained his audience with one of the  wittiest speeches yet heard in the  Boundary. Being the leader of the  Conservatives in the province of ��� Quebec, Mr. Bergeron has been in the  house for 29.years, and is pretty well  acquainted with all the ways of that  august body, whether Conservative or  Liberal. With a slight French accent,  but with a perfect command of the  English language, he spoke rapidly  and most entertainingly, never hesitating for an instant, and many times he  had his audience in roars of laughter.  He took his text from a copy of the  Grand Forks Sun, and continually referred to that paper and its editor.  With a word picture that was graphic  indeed, the speaker went over the platform of the Liberals: in 1896, when  they went into power, metaphorically  nailing up plank after plank on the  wall, and showed how they had not  lived up to any of their ante-election  promises, but had increased the public  debt, increased trie tariff and increased  the cost of conducting the government  in large degree. 7"On that platform,"  said he, "we were, prepared to fight,  but they did none of these things.  They stole our TNatiprial -Policy, and  have kept it ever since, and if we   left  any-abuoea they liav�� Icept   them,-too.''  "Mr. McBride had his troubles  about roads and bridges, we are told,"  said Mr. Bergeron; "he is foolish to do  that. We don't do that in Quebec-  Sir Wilfrid builds us everything we  want." And then the speaker gave  details of wharves and bridges being  interchangeable in Quebec, and both  being often built at a -cost of many  thousands of dollars, sometimes where  there is no water.  The story of the  steamer Arctic, as  told  by   Mr.  Bergeron   was   certainly  amusing.    Bought as a fast ship, she  took   35   days   to   cross   the  ocean.  Fitted up with $215,000 in provisions  for 32 men for a voyage, she was sent  to Hudson's Bay to hunt for the North  Pole  or   something  else.     There,  in  winter quarters, the   crew   entertained  the Eskimo ladies to their hearts' content, with the choicest  viands   procurable by a generous purchasing department at Ottawa.   They did something;  they named Mt.  Laurier and   Prefon-  taine bay.    Nor  was   the  disgraceful  story of the  North   Atlantic   Trading  Co. overlooked by Mr. Bergeron.    He  closed with an eulogy of his   leader as  a "man of his word," and an appeal to  the electors to remember the record of  the Laurier government at the polls.  The party  left  at   midnight   on  special   train,   intending  to   speak  Cranbrook Tuesday evening.  ATHELSTAN  ABOUT TO SHIP  Ore   Hauling   Begins  On Monday.  Boundary Mining Notes  Dominion Copper Co. Sending  Out 300 Tons at Once.  The Dominion Copper Co. has  let a contract to Murdock Mclntyre, of this city, to haul some  300 tons of ore from its Alhclslan  mine, in Wellington camp, for shipment by the C.P.R. to the company's  Boundary Falls smelter. Mr. Mclntyre, who has the largest stable outfit  in the Boundary, is now making  arrangements for the carrying out of  the contract, and expects to begin the  work on Monday, next. The ore will  be hauled nearly two miles, up hill,  to the Winnipeg spur of the C.P.R.,  near Hartford Junction, and thence  shipped to the smelting'works. In lhe  past the ore has yielded between $8  and $10 in gold, and the mine is  known as the most important one in  Wellington camp  The Athlestan-Jackpot mines were  one of the acquisitions of the Do  minion Copper Co. two or three years  ago when that company purchased the  entire holdings of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated Co., including all  their mines in Phoenix, Summit and  Deadwood camp, the Athlestan being  about the only mine in the Boundary  district in which the values are almost  entirely in gold. It is located right on  the main Grand Forks to Phoenix  wagon road, on Boundary mountain,  but has been handicapped heretofore  by being away from railway transportation facilities. Heretofore, when  shipments have been made from the  Athelstan, it was in winter, when hauling could be done much less expensively than by wagon. It is understood that M. M. Johnson, cousulting  engineer for the Dominion Copper  Co., has always had a high opinion of  the Athelstan mine, it being the belief  that large bodies of good copper ore  will be- found to underlie the .masses  of decomposed ore which has heretofore been easily taken out and shipped  a  in  Trunk Pacific bills of 1903 and 1904.  We were told in this province that if  only Liberals were sent to Ottawa,  work on the Pacific end would begin  in a month or two or something of that  kind, and yet some three years had  passed without anything being done.  Me yet believed that, as the country  was finding nine-tenths of the cash for  the building of the G. T. P., it should  find the other tenth and get all the  benefits. It could then control its  construction and management. The  promises have been violated by this  company, and the people can only wait  and take what the railway wishes to  give. He believed in government  control more than ever.  Referring to the immigration question, which is now engaging the minds  of people particularly, on account of  the great influx of Orientals to British  Columbia, he stated that the Conservative party was prepared to deal with  the question according to the views of  the people of this province, constitutionally expressed, and declared that  the present Dominion government is  in a position to abrogate the treaty by  which this influx is permitted or the  people have been grossly deceived by  the Laurier government.  Mr. Borden referred to the National  policy, which the  Liberals   have been  Moores on Monday Next.  Moore's Concert Co. will give a  grand concert and ball next Monday,  October 7th, at the opera house.  They state that they have an entire  change of programme and 5,000 feet  of films from New York city, that  will be part of the programme, such  as, "If You had a Wife Like This;"  also, "The Glorious Start," a big laugh  from start to finish, and a lot of others  that are not slow. They also have a  nice bunch of the latest illustrated  songs that please all. The one song,  "The Miners' Home, Sweet Home," is  said to be worth the price of admission  alone, and there are others. The  Moores have spared no expense in  purchasing their films and in arranging  the programme for this season.  Remember, the dance after the  show, with good, up to date music,  will be free to all those holding re-  sesved seat tickets. Tickets now on  sale at Tom Brown's: prices, 25c, 50.  and 75c; doors open at 7.30, curtain  at 8:30 sharp.

Report of Principal Simpson  tor August and  Seplember.  During August and September the  pupils of the senior division received  marks daily for their proficiency in the  various subjects taught in the school,  and also additional marks as a reward  for good conduct, about one-seventh '  of the total number being awarded for  the latter. The following list shows  the total number of marks obtained by  each pupil.  HIGH SCHOOL ENTRANCE CLASS.

The standing of some of the pupils  in the foregoing list is low on account  of their absence. Pupils cannot obtain marks when they are not at school  The following list shows the number  of days' absence during August and  September of the pupils mentioned:  Katie Bell, 15; Edna Swanson, 14;  Willie Johns, 1 o '4: Helen Quinlivan,  10; Frank Stevenson, y}4; Hattie Graham, 9; Morfydd Bateman, 5 \4\  Arthur Isaacson, 5; Harold Townsend,  4}4; Harry Swanson, 4V2.  Ioiin Simpson.  Granby ore shipments for September were over 20,000 tons more than  for August, being 74,677 tons.  Most of the shipments from the  Emma mine, Summit camp, are now  being sent to the Granby smelter.  A force of twelve men is employed  at the Maple Leaf, Franklin camp, and  it is the intention to continue development all winter.  When the financiers get through  juggling with copper, says the Gieen-  wood Ledge, the price will probably  settle around 20 cents and stay  there.  Warner Miller, president of the Dominion Copper Co., and M. M. Johnson, the consulting engineer, are expected in the Boundary this coming  week.  This week the Snowshoe sent 1,585  tons of ore to the Trail smelter and  2,961 to Greenwood, a total of 4,546  tons. This mine shipped over 18,000  tons in September.  Nothing doing at the Mountain  Rose, for the present, is the report  from Summit camp, the smelter having  a supply of this iron ore sufficient to  last for some time.  B. C. Copper's smelter this, week  treated 4,461 tons of Mother Lode ore;  78 tons of Napoleon; 5 tons of Emma;  70 tons of Oro Denoro, and 4,060 tons  of Snowshoe and other custom ore���  .1 total of 8,674 tons.  It is understood that the development work being done on the Iron  Clad group, Wellington camp, by W.  J. Porter and G. XV. Rumberger, the  owners, this summer, has greatly improved the appearance of the property.  A dozen men are at work on the  Golden Eagle, up the North Fork, and  ore is being gotten out for a trial ship  ment to the Granby smelter���the first  shipment over the new railway up the  North Fork, now completed to Lynch  creek.  There is no dimunution whatever of  activity at the Granby mines and smelter, both being worked at the fullest  possible capacity. So much ore is  being taken out at the mines at present  that Sunday work has been discontinued of late.  Installation now being nearly or  quite complete with the new electric  compressor at the Crescent mine, Foreman Feeney will start work at once,  and expects soon to have a force of  some 15 or 20 men employed. The  first work will be stoping some ore  bodies and sending the ore to the  smelter. Col. T. L. Dickason, of  Chicago, the chief owner, is expected  to arrive here almost daily.  MAKING YARD  AT HARTFORD  Several Improvements  By-C;RR.  Keeps Engine   Busy  Continually in Phoenix.  made  Koot-  a trip  was a  When I). C. Coleman was  superintendent of the C. P. R  enay-Boundary lines, and made  to Phoenix, he decided there  better way to make up and dispatch  ore trains from this point than that  heretofore employed, and make plans  to this end. He intends lo keep one  locomotive busy in and around I'hoenix all the time, gathering up the  loaded ore dumps at the several mines,  and assembling them at Hartford  Junction, two miles distant, but scarcely  a mile distant from the Rawhide.  Thence the trains will be sent direct to  the smelters to which they are destined  without further trouble.  To accomplish this it was necessary  to make a yard at Hartford Junction,  laying more trackage and generally  giving room for handling Ihe long  trains of ore dumps taken out of this  camp.  The work of getting things in shape  at Hartford is now well under way,  ���with a couple of work trains on the  ground. Steel will be laid.on the old  switchback, which has not been used  for three or four years, and a diamond  will be put in, with ample trackage  .facilities. When the changes are com-,  pleted the switch engine���or two, if  one is not sufficient���will take the  loads from the Brooklyn, Stemwinder,  Granby, Snowshoe, Gold Drop, or  Rawhide mines to Hartford, and from  there sent right through to destination.  If the C. P. R. will now begin to  supply more of the iong promised new  steel ore dumps, everything will be  lovely in the shipping line.  Gunn-Cummlags Wedding.  Wednesday, October 2d, a pretty  wedding occurred at the home of Mrs.  Dan McKinnon, Denoro, the principals  being Donald Gunn, chief of police of  Phoenix, and Miss Sadie M. Cum-  mings, sister of Mrs. McKinnon. The  groom was assisted by James A. Cum-  mings, and the bride by Miss Viola A.  Pierce, the officiating clergyman being  Rev. Samuel Lundie, of Phoenix.  Both bride and groom came from  Prince Edward Island, the McKinnons  having lived in Phoenix some four  years ago. The happy couple took the  C. P. R. train the same day for Nelson  and Spokane for a brief honeymoon  trip, Chief Gunn having obtained leave  ���of absence from the police commissioners. When they return they will  take up their residence in a house just  being completed on Old Ironsides  avenue.  Thornber-McKenna.  Tuesday  evening,  at  the home  of  John Jordan, 104 Eighth avenue, Spokane, Wash., the wedding   took  place  of Charles   L.   Thorn ber   and   Miss  Marguerite McKenna.   The ceremony  was performed according to the rites of  the Catholic church   by   Rev.   Father  Verhagan.    The bridesmaid was  Miss  Mayme Jordan, while the  groom was  supported by William   X.   McDonald,  of Phoenix.    Miss   Irene   Burns and  Miss   Francis   McAtee,  neices of the  bride,    were   flower  girls,   and   Miss  Helen Burns ring bearer.    The  bride  was given away by her  brother-in-law,  Edward F. Burns.   Only the immediate  relatives of the contracting parties were  present, the drawing room being decorated with asters and Shasta daisies before a bank of palms.  Mrs. Thornber made her home in  Phoenix three years ago, at the time  that Burns and Jordan had extensive  contracts here on the V. V. & E. railway, and made many friends in Phoenix. Mr. Thornber has resided here  for several years, having been principal  of the public school up to the end of  the last term, and now occupying a  position in the office of Morrin,  Thompson & Co. Both bride arid  groom were given the heartiest congratulations by many friends and acquaintances. They have taken rooms  in the Graves-Williams building.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

There can be little doubt but that a  Dominion election will be .brought on  in the near future, probably some time  t next spring, as the politicians are girding themseives and are  preparing  for  the   fray  from  the   Atlantic  to   the  Pacific.    T.r-ere*:ore>   it  may  be  said  , that the   Conservatives  have opened  their campaign already in this province  by the speeches made in the last week  or ten days by R. L. Borden, leader of  the     Domiuion     opposition,     Hon.  Richard McBride, our premier, J. G.  H.  Bergeron, Conservative ' leader in  Quebec, and others.  More than one pair of eyes was  opened last Monday night at Grand  Forks; when the party filled its only  appointment in the Boundary on this  ��� trip. The record of the present  Laurier government for the last eleven  years, since being in power, was laid  bare to the electors, and, taking it all  through, it was anything but creditable.  While '. no Liberal speakers were  present, it would appear difficult indeed to. gainsay the facts and figures  that were given to support the statements made. The country has prospered wonderfully under the Laurier  regime and in spite of it; but the Government itself, in numerous respects,  has grown corrupt and the machine  should be .broken.  That this will be done at the next  general election, there is a general  feeling, and it is not confined entirely to  Conservative circles. In the language  of the day, the work of the Grits has  grown altogether too raw, and the time  for turning them out is about due.  There is every confidence that British  Columbia will do its share to this end  when the time comes.  matter of what political complexion.  When Mr. Burrell leaves his home in  Grand Forks next week to spend three  or four months travelling in the mother  country, giving lectures occasionally  and showing what can be done in  British Columbia in fruit growing by  having the goods with him on exhibition, some of which he has raised himself right in the Boundaty, it will certainly be one of the: best advertisements that this province ever had, lor  Mr. Burrell is thoroughly .equipped for  the work in hand.  Indeed, we do not see how the  selection could well have been bettered,  for, not only has Mr. Burrell taken a  deep interest in fruit growing, being  I most successful at it himself, but he  (has travelled all over the province  many times, and is familiar with its  various districts. Added to this is his  well known pleasing platform ability to  unfold his tale to interested listeners.  This last is an important matter, and  will stand him in good stead in England.  Therefore, we say again, that the  province is to be congratulated on  haying such an ably qualified repre  sentative for this purpose, and -.no  little good will How'from it, in all  human probability.  ���  I ^   It would'seem Ihsit scarcely any one  that reads, east or west, needs be told  that, there are numerous dotations,  with Cobalt or Larder Lake as their  habitat, that would answer Mark-  Twain's joking definition of a mine,  which he said was a hole in the ground,  the owner thereof being a liar. Doubtless the eastern brokers, who waxed  fat a few years ago on the savings of  washer ��� women, clerks, widows, etc.,  alleging that the money was put into  British Columbia mines, are not far re-  removed from the scene of the Ontario  flotations. Just this week we received  literature asking us to take stock in a  Larder Lake flotation, which may or  may not have merit. And so it goes,  and there must indeed be a sucker born  every minute.  ***  It is commendable, therefore, to find  which means that they were financial  successes, and the people at large enjoyed their outings and the big pump  kins and turnips at the same time.  '.They make excellent breathing spots  in the year of work, and in addition  put some- coin of the realm in circulation.  How to Cure a Cold.  The question of how to cure a cold  without unnecessary loss of time is one  in which we are all more or less interested, for the quicker a cold is gotten  rid of the less the danger of pneumonia  and other serious . diseases. Mr. XV.  L. Hall, of Waverly, Va., has used  Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for years  and says: "I firmly believe .Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to be absolutely  the best preparation on th^.: market  for colds. I have recommended it to  niy friends and they all agree with me,"  For sale by all druggists.

Cussed'  ussedness  o'  fWhr  ippersnappers.  Once in a while a man.in some subordinate position, with a little authority,  gets it into his head that he is the  whole thing, and , acts accordingly.  Such a man is James,-Wilson, ..western  superintendent bf the telegraphic department of the C. P. R., and located  at Vancouver.  His latest move  is   to  discontinue  the press service, poor as it   is, to the  Nelson   Daily   News.    There  is, no  complaint that the News does not pay  the outrageous   toll   exacted   for   this  heretofore miserable  service  that   the  C.P.R. masquerades as  an   Associated Press service���and which no more  resembles the real thing than the devil  resembles holy water.    It was merely  that  the  News   criticised  justly   and  fairly in its columns the quality of the  service supplied.    In other words, Mr.  Wilson presumes to dictate what  the  Nelson' News shall and shall not print  If this is not a life-sized imitation of  concentrated, double  distilled, extract  of the cussedness of a whippersnapper,  then we do not know what it is.    And  we   are   very   much   mistaken  if  the  president of the C. P. R. will  permit  any such petty work* on the part of his  subordinates.    It is a pretty   state of  affairs when such a thing can   happen  in   Canada, and    the   more  publicity  given to this  highhanded   proceeding,  the better.    Incidentally, the News will  fight it out  and   demand a service���  and we believe will get it, Mr.   Wilson  to the contrary notwithstanding.  Some  people need taking down a peg or two.  Speaking of flotations, the following  is taken from the Monetary Times, of  Toronto, regarding the B. C. Amalgamated Coal Co., a concern which seems  to be a good deal more active outside  of this province, from all accounts,  than within it, with some coal measures  of some kind in the Nicola country:  "Every man and woman earning  wages should have at least one , hundred shares of this good stock," is the  advice given by the brokers handling  the British Columbia Amalgamated  Coal Company. The prospective investor is naturally anxious to judge '. to  his likely profits. This is the information afforded him:  "Coal can be mined at $r per ton  ��� profit, 1,000 tons per day (a small production) equals $1,000,000 profits per  annum. TEnough to pay 18 cents per  share on the present amount of stock  that has been issued, namely 5,400,-  000 shares. Your money back in one  year and 3 cents per share in addition,  1,000 shares, when stock goes up to  par value, will be worth $1,000. They  cost only $150 now. Profit is $850,  or 1,133 per cent;; 3,ooo*tons per day  willtreble the dividends. The company��� will_eve'ntunlly--praduce"'mircir  more than this."  It will be observed that it is stated  that coal "can be mined," not that  coal will be- mined. By . a mathematical calculation, shrouded in mythical probabilities, profits are estimated  An Approved Appointment.

There is something about the advertisements of the British , Columbia  Amalgamated "Coal Company which  does not excite confidence. The excellent optimism of the statements  made is outdone by their ingenious  vagueness.  -,11*  The subscription list of the Pioneer  continues to grow, but we can still  accommadate a few more who wish the  news of the Boundary generally. We  also have a few still on the list who  seem to have overlooked the fact that  the editor must liveif he is to continue  his publication. The very small but  select class who owe this paper from  three to five years'subscriptions will  confer a special favor by sending along  the necessary "dough" to have their  address labels changed. If this meets  the eye of any of them���and it will,  never fear���they should think how  much better they will feel after attending to the matter; and how much  belter we will feel, too.

SMELTING IN  THE BOUNDARY  Pen Picture of Present  Condition.  Details of Interest  to Layman  and Professional.  Lust summer Ralph Stokes, correspondent of the Mining World, Chicago,  visited the Boundary and made exhaustive notes on the mining and  smtlting practice. The following is  taken from an article recently printed  in the Mining World, from Mr. Stokes'  pen, under the title, "Smelting in the  Boundary Copper Field," and contains  mailer of interest to the layman and  metallurgist:  So enormous are the low-grade copper deposits of the Boundary district,  that the mines in iy he said to be dependent on .the smelters just as, at  Rossland, the smelters are dependent  upon the mines. But all have in the  past been at the mercy of the Crow's  Nest coal miners. Apart from this  out'-ide influence, the capacity of furnaces is the chief limiting factor in the  industrial expansion of the Boundary,  and on this account the metallurgical  itsjiect of the situation is of the more  absorbing interest and economic importance. General managers of Boundary companies are metallurgical men  To the low costs and high efficiency  attained in the reduction work's, the  prosperity of the district is secondanly  dut". the primary causes are the exceptionally favorable natural features.  The three large smelters, each controlled by companies with their own  sources of ore supply, are: Granby, situated at Grand Forks, near the confluence of two forks nf the Kettle river;  B C. Copper Co.'s works at Anaconda, adjo-'ning Greenwood, and the  Dominion, three miles to the south at  Boundary Falls. Journeying another  three miles to the south, one reaches  the international boundary line and  Washington.  Smelting-plants have all been greatly  enlarged during the past year or so to  meet the demand for increased production. Before tabulating the capacities of 14 furnaces operating today,  it is of interest to note the record of  smelter achievements which is now to  l"e almost, duplicated:  riant.  C.ranliy   11. C.

But these figures  show yearly treatment of over 2,000,000  tons, allowing a full month for repaiis  or emergency interruptions. The  Gianby smelter was the first to be put  in commision. In 1900, it treated 62,  387 tons, and since then 3,250,000  tons ol ore have been put through.  Steadily during the past seven years,  the capacity has been enlarged. Last  year, the furnaces were lengthened, by  the addition of one jacket section, to  44 by 2 18 ins. at the tuyeres, and it is  suggested, or even arranged to still  further inciease the smelting capacity  by lengthening to 252 inches. There  are eight furnaces erected and regularly employed. A. B. W. Hodges,  who built the works and is now general manager in . the Boundary, has  favored me with the following average  analysis of ore charge: Insoluable  (mostly silica), 40%; sulphur, 4.5%;  "���on, 17%; lime, 18%; alumina, 7%;  magnesia, 7 per cent.  The returns for the last fiscal year  showed a recovery, from 796,188 tons  of Granby ore and 36,158 tons of  foreign ore, of copper, 24 ibs., silver  0*38 oz , gold, o 06 ounce.  Ore from the mines, which has  passed through the Parrel crushers, is  received in lumps up to 8 to 9 ins.  and thus fed into the furnaces. By  -his coarse charging, flue dust is reduced. Granby chambers catch in  dust equivalent to 0.75 to r.o of the  charge. Furnaces are fed by cars run  J.�� from the end and these give a well  distributed bottom discharge of their  burden. The sampling scheme is  most thorough, a small portion of  every railway carload finding its way to  the assay office, not   merely of every  fifth or tenth. Electric locomotives  draw the trucks of ore and fuel from  the bins to the feed floor. Coke is  used to the extent of 10 to 12 per  cent. A matte is aimed for with a  value of 40 to 45% for the converter  p'ant of three stands, with hydraulically  tilted horizontal converters, turning oui  blister copper approximately yo% pure.  Slag granulation today being impossible, the waste product is tipped hot  on an extensive dumping ground between the works and river An average slag analysis gives: Silica, 45%;  lime, 23%; iron, 15%; alumina, 7.5%;  magnesia, 1.5%. Copper contents art*  probably approximately 0.3 per cent.  Of the additional improvements' to  be speedily effected at these works,  whose life of seven years has been  marked by a continual sequence ol  such progressive modifications and  whose projected enlargement to a  capacity of over 4,000 tons per day  may thus the more confidently be expected, one of note is a new flue  chamber of a rectangular type, 13 ft.  by 1 5 ft. high and 313 ft. long. This  will stand 22 ft. above the feed floor.  At Grand Forks, Mr. Hodges is  assisted by W. A. Williams. The pioneers of the Granby Consolidated, to  whom most credit is due for carrying  the concern through early difficulties,  are Jay P. Graves and A.  L. White.  B. C. Copper Company.���The  smelter outside of Greenwood is in  some respects the most efficient in the  field. Ixist year the plant was remodeled, the three new 650-ton furnaces replacing the two old furnaces  with a combined capacity of 700 to  800 tons. Present ore bin capacity  is 12,000 tons and 1,000 tons of coke  can also be stored, livery tenth car  of Mother Lode ore and all of the cus  toms ore go to the sampler, which  comprises a series of Gates crushers  with intermediate sampling devices invented by the former manager, Paul  Johnson. These samples are practically Vezins with functions reversed,  for instead of the scoops catching the  small part required for the sample, the  revolving funnel is so divided that the  bulk is caught while the fifth or tenth  part passes outside. Wear and tear  must be heavier than in the Vezin devices. All ore, sampled or not, passes  through a 5 in. crusher.  From bins to furnaces, the ore and  fuel are conveyed by side-dumping,  direct charging 3-ton cars, hauled by 6-  tonBaldwin locomotives. Thefurnaces,  48 by 240 ins. at the tuyeres, of which  there are 48 (4 ins.) are supplied with  a 22 to 24 oz. blast by size 10 Root's  blowers with a capacity of 25,500  cubic ft. per minute. There is a  blower to each furmce, operated by  300 h. p. Westinghouse induction  motors. The furnaces, made by The  Power and Mining Machinery Co. of  Milwaukee, Wis., were the largest in  Canada when erected, but are nmv stir  passed by the Dominion Company's  new plant.  A particular feature of the general  layout of the B. C. Copper works is  the scheme of the slag disposal which,  excepting the granulation system  necessarily abandoned four years ago,  as by the Granby and Dominion, is  most efficient and economical.  Prior to 1904, the B.C Copper Co.  was obliged to ship its matte, but now  it performs its own blister production,  dealing also with the Dominion matte.  As at the Granby, the matte is conveyed in ladles by means of electric  traveling crane to the converters. Two  stands are employed, with Allis-Chal-  mers trough converters 54 ins. by 126  ins. long, hydraulically tilted. Matte  of 45 to 50% is bessemerized to 99%  blister.  The only defect in Mother Lode  ore, with normal contributions of other  mines, is an occasional shortage in  sulphur, which can be readily remedied.  Granby ore is higher in this element  than the average of the B. C. Copper  or of the Dominion Co., which draws  upon its Mountain Rose for the sulphides to regulate the analysis. At  the B. C works, average slag contains:  Silica, 42%; iron, 19%; lime, 22%; alumina, 6 to 7%; magnesia, 1.5 per cent  A recent innovation iir connection  with furnace practice, worthy of note,  is the use of a carbon rod with a  current of 135 amperes at 250 volts  pressure for burning out frozen matte  in settler or furnace connections. The  rod, with suitably insulated handle, is  about 30 ins. long and 1 in. in diameter and should be used by an operator with mica eye shades. Its advantages will be well understood by those  accustomed to clearing frozen tap holes  by less scientific means.  The work of reconstructing the  plant has been directed by f. E. McAllister, formerly superintendent and  now the manager at Greenwood, assisted by A. B. Snyder. F. Keffer  controls mining operations, with Mr.  Mcintosh in charge at the Mother  Lode.  Dominion Copper Company.���The  record of the smelter at Boundary  Falls, three miles south, has of late  been changed from failure to success,  Formerly a losing proposition in the  hands of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, it is now  flourishing under  the control of the Dominion Company.  It was at the close of. 1905 that the  smelter, comprising two furnaces with  .1 joint capacity of f,v, t,,|,,s ,)(r ,J11V)  was brought sullicienily into shape by  VV. C. Thor.ias to allow (or a resumption of operations. Dm ing the subsequent 13 months (10 Dec. 31, 1906)  some 226,000 tons of ore were put  through for a yield of 4,405,500 lbs. of  copper, for a monlh'y profit averaging  $22,870, and at a cost of $3.41 "per.  ton for mining, smelting and freight.  Soon after work had been commenced  and the numerous defects of the plant  thoroughly learned from practical experience, it was decided to remedy the  most vital fault���smallnes of scale���by  erecting a large new furnace to more  than double the plant's capacity. Last  June, new construction was completed  and the furnaces blown in. For  reasons to be subsequently explained,  the results of work at the Dominion  are being as keenly watched by technical men in the district as by. share-,  holders interested for other reasons.  The difficulties of effecting an exten  sion to the old plant, on lines for  which no allowance was ever made,  have been ^innumerable and in some  instances only to be overcome with  considerable ingenuity. But it has  been necessary to leave the combination a somewhat disjointed establishment. Crushing, sampling and bin  charging arrangements have been completely remodeled. A large Farrel jaw  crusher, similar to those in use at the  Granby mines, has been installed to  take the bulk of the ore, the fifth or  tenth portion destined for the samples  going through the old gyratory crusher.  From the breakers, the ore is elevated  by means of a bucket-belt, passing  thence to a traveling belt conveyor  (Jeffrey's flat belt) for distribution  among the ore bins, whose total .capacity is: Ore, 3,500 tons; coke, 700  tons.  The new bins stared higher above  the feed floor than the old, to permit!  of the utilization of 3-ton Jeffrey locomotives and.a new type .of..divided car.  Three of these cars are drawn alongside  the new furnace and made to discharge  one-half of their contents into it.  Then, they will be hauled to the opposite side to feed in the other half,  each side of the car being independently opened. At the old furnaces,  hand charging barrows are still used.  Coke consumption on the Boundary  averages 12 to 13%, and with the fuel  at $6.50 per ton this means a fixed  charge of 8 cents per ton' of ore  smelted. On the basis of only 1,500,-  000 tons smelted irAhe Boundary per  annum, and fuel consumption at  i2}-2%, a 10% reduction in coke used  would be equivalent, other things being  equal, to a saving of $120,000. I  understand that the Dominion anticipates a bigger saving.than 10 per cent.  The blower plant has also, of course,  required duplication, and with difficulty, this has been managed by Mr.  Thomas in the old building. The  plant now comprises two Connersvilles,  with a capacity of 10,000 cubic feet  per minute., each, and one of; 2O,"00O  cubic feet capacity, operated by a 100-  h. p. motor connection.at each end.  The ore treated at Boundary Falls  corresponds closely in composition  with the district's average. - It runs 15%  iron, 18 to 20% lime, 40% silica, 27 to  29% sulphur, and 6 to 7% alumina  and magnesia. The copper left in  BoundaJy slag is stated to be 0.35%,  and this figure would, I gather, not  unfairly cover the district.  The Boundary field is predominantly  characterized by  (i) Enormous low-grade copper de  posits, yielding 23 to 28 lbs. copper  and about $1.50 in gold and silver.  (2) Neighboring water power providing electric power at mines and  works for $33 per h. p. annum.  (3) Admirable railway facilities and  competing services.  (4) Coke, at about $6.50 per ton, in  irregular supplies.  (5) Labor at $3.30 to $4 per shift.  (6) Three smelters operated by  companies with their own sources of  ore supply.
