 r-ry-i  p.^^______^^  IW..  w  W  Provincial  Eleventh Year,  PHOENIX, .B.C.,  SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12,  1910  No.  51  KETTLE VALLEY SAID TO  CONTAIN LARGE CO^L AREA  $62,000 IS VALUAT  OF MIDWAY & VE  Midway Property Ships First Car of Cokl���New Company Formed This Week;  The first car of coal from the Midway coal mine, amounting- to 30  tons, was shipped to. Grand Forks  this week and comments as to its  quality are particularly favorable.  That the'Kettle Valley:, west from  Midway possesses; a ..coal basin of  large area is the opinion of not only  prospectors intimate with the, geological formations of the district but  of an expert geologist who has made  a cursory inspection of development  work on the deposits in the district  and a recommendation to have an  official report on the district will, be  made to the Dominion department  of mines.  For, years past quantities of coal  for blacksmithingand mine purposes  have been secured on the surface  from deposits. The coal was of  good quality but for some .reason  or other the proving-up of the limits  has been   retarded   by  the   owners.  About two "years ago the "Boundary Exploration company secured  limits about three miles west of Midway which have been developed with  very ehcouraging^results, a car ;pf  fuel of good quality having already  been shipped. Now another syndicate are prosecuting development  work on coal limits on Meyers  Creek, which while divided from the  Kettle Valley by a range of mountains are only six miles distant from  the Midway property  and  are  believed to be part,of same coal area.  About two months ago a number  of prominent citizens of Phoenix and  Grand Forks formed a syndicate and  secured an option.on;2*340 acres of  coal limits on./Myers Creek at  Bergen, a point on the Great Northern riine" miles west of Midway.  Development work since that time  has exposed two substantial seams  of bituminous coal, the government  assay on a sample of the coal-showing 69 per cent, fixed carbon and  only 8 per cent. ash.  A meeting of the  syndicate   was  held in  Phoenix  on  Tuesday   when  the   Myers   Creek  Coal   and   Coke  company was formed.   E. Spraggett  of Grand Forks   was   elected   president and D. J. Darraugh  secretary-  treasurer.    Among the other shareholders   are:     G.   W.   Rumberger,^  John A. Swanson, R. V.   Chishoinr  Carl    Helmer, *' A   Luciani,    J.  Thompson, Theo. Biner,  N. J. Car-  son, J. H.  Vivian,   John   Mulligan,  P.    Clune, ;Wm;'  Delehay,   A.   S;  Hood and E. /Luridemo, of Phoenix;;  S. R. Almond, D. A. McKinnon, G.  D.    Clark   and   C.    E.   Johnson   of  Grand Forks. .  Buildings are now being constructed at the property and work  will be carried on throughout the  winter.  Part of Claims Will Be Paid in  Full  MERGER OF BOUNDARY  COPPER COMI>ANIES  Is Suggested  By a New York  Financial Paper  Operation of the properties of the  New Dominion Copper Co., which  was begun recently at the Rawhide  mine, is under the same management as that of the British Columbia  Copper Co. Officers of the two  companies are now practically the  same, and J. E. McAllister is general  manager for both.  About 2,500 tons of ore a week  from the New Dominion mines is  being treated at the Greenwood  smelter of the British Columbia Co.  under a contract covering 25,000  tons. Officers say that another contract on the >ame terms covering  25,000 more will probably be made  when this one expires, but it is not  known what arrangements will be  made after that.  It is not known yet whether a  merger of the   two   companies   will  be considered or not. Value of the  New Dominion ores will be the  governing factor in whatever permanent arrangements are made,  and that cannot be ascertained until  all the poor ore left loose in the  mines by the former management  is   removed.     By   the   time   50,000  tons have been treated, however,  the ore bodies will have been reached  and the value of the new Dominion  ore determined. If a consolidation  is arranged, the interests of the  minority stockholders of the New  Dominion Co. will have to be considered.���Wall Street Journal.

Copper Co. 13,525        325,461  The board of valuators appointed  to decide upon an equitable sum for  which the Kettle Valley Railway  company should purchase the old  Midway & Vernon right of way, has  decided upon a figure in the neighborhood of $62,000. It is stated  on authoritative information that  the amount of the award will be  forthcoming within ten days time.  The valuators hope to be in a position to make payments in the  matter of various claims for wages  and supplies incurred by the defunct  railway company and assumed by  the Kettle Valley road, sometime  between now and the end of the  present month. The claims for  labor and accounts of that description, so far as they appertain to the  ten mile right of way1-,between Midway and Rork Creek are likely to  be paid-in'Full.     This was the portion  ofjEire^road with which the board of  uators could deal. Other claims  in connection with that portion of  the road, will, it is stated, receive  substantial consideration.  The board of valuators was composed of Judge Fprin of Nelson, R.  F. Green of Victoria, representing  the provincial government, and- L.  M. Rice of Seattle, who represented  the Kettle River railway.  PHCENIX AMALGAMATED  Install Machinery Preparatatory  to Commencing Work  The Phoenix Amalgamated mine,  locally known as the War Eagle,  will soon be an addition to the  active properties of Phoenix.  A crew of a dozen men went to  the mine today to install a motor  and other machinery preparatory to  the commencement of mining operations. The force on development  work will be put on in  a few days.  The Phoenix Amalgamated is  owned by the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting company and is under  the direction of Charles Biesel, superintendent of the Snowshoe and  Number Seven mines. It has had  considerable work done on it and is  practically at the shipping stage.  It is equipped with a 3000-foot tram  line which connects with a half-mile  spur of the C.P.R. The ore is low  grade copper, a test shipment of  250 tons having been made in 1908.  -���$#-���-  It is stated that A. J. Watters of  Seattle- will resume development  work on the American Boy property  at Boundary Falls. Mr. Watters is  the original owner of the Providence  mine, which he exploited in the  early days, packing ore by horse  back to Marcus, Wash., for shipment to Tacoma smelter in 1893.  HEDLEY GOLD  CO.

Since the acquiring of the Nickel  Plate mine at Hedley in August,  1909, this company has paid $143,-  520 in dividends, its total earnings to  August 31 last being $284,403.  Net profits for the first eight months  of this year, by months, were as  follows:  January $11,095  February    16,052  March      7,489  April   23,094  Tons ore  January 2,718  February 3,052  March 1,919  April 3,921  May 4,305  June 4,574  July 4,549  May    29,663  June t ......    29,503  July    26,338  August    26,604  Total. .   : 169,841  The company is paying quarterly  dividends of 30% on its 120,000  shares outstanding, so that it will  be seen that the eight months' earnings are $25,000 in excess of dividend requirements for the year.

McKeown  Now that the hockey season  will  soon be   oh   a;ttd   there   will   be the  usual rivalry between teams of the  Boundary for; league  championship  honors, the   Pioneer  would   like  to  suggest   that  the   clubs    make   an  effort to raise the standard   of playing.    There have  been  matches in  the Boundary in the past  that were  not a credit to the teams participating; they smacked too   much of the  conflict idea   rather   than of wholesome rivalry.     Good-natured rivalry  is the key to all  sport, but  there is  no honor   in   a  game   won  by foul  means.       Maliciously   maiming   an  opponent or   forcing   a   win ;/'at all  cost" is the work   of barbarianism  and should be stamped   out.     Good  clean hockey is in   a   class   by itself  for the spectator; there  is   probably  no other game that  will create  and  hold   enthusiasm   tentioned   to   the  pitch that hockey will While a game  is in progress.     It  demands  speed,  skill, alertness, cleverness and vigor  on the part  of players, and excites  both the interest and   admiration of  the onlooker.   Give the public something for their money and there will  be  less  chance  of a  depleted   club  treasury.   Let us have clean hockey.

PH3TE Phoenix,  "Ole Olson" Coming  ����01e Olson" is the name of a  comedy success our readers will  learn by reference to our advertising  columns that Ben Hendricks famous  comedy is coming to Phoenix, Nov.  21st. Comparatively few, however,  who refer to the advertisement are  aware of the fact that this company  has a history most, remarkable.  "Ole Olson was organized in 1888  and has travelled ten months every  year since that time and filling all  obligations. There is no show  either in the past or present that has,  travelled as many miles, exhibited  to such myriads of people or has  won a mo/'e exalted or enviable  reputation. h  Pure, wholesome, snappy, sparkling up-to-date songs, music and  specialties compose the program of  four acts of a play with a good plot,  and plenty of comedy.

Among these are Ellis,  Smith and McDonaldj, who figured  in Crows Nest hockey las��< winter,  and Laing from Grand Forks. Dr.  Scott, who has a brilliant hockey  record, will likely return to Phoenix  next month and be on the lineup.  Then there is McQueen and other  local experts.

FHBBB  B BbMBx  Furniture  I   Undertaker  -V  t,   ��� ...vv'  I  '  (x Copper Market  Boston���The best  feature   which  has developed  in  the copper  trade  during the past few days  has  been  an improved demand for copper from  domestic buyers calling for November and December deliveries.    This  is   one   of  the   plainest   indications  that American   manufacturers   have  considerable copper yet to purchase.  Sales for the, new year have been  on'a comparatively small basis with  a few Lakei transactions   extending  part    way; into   February at   13^  cents a��pound.        ;       ��� <���>���.,'������  During the past week  an   important development  has  occurred   in  the copper trade, namely, the placing  of electrolytic copper on the basis of  13c. ' Ail the leading selling agencies  now are making the .firm  price, of  13c. for copper, having sold the tremendous volume   of the , metal   on  the scale-up from 12^ cents.     Copper ^producers and selling  agencies  declare more copper has been   sold  for .future delivery  in   the   last   few  -    weeks than in a corresponding period  in two years.   :This'.is   regarded as  ,   indicating confidence on  the parttof  ^consumers regarding the future.-  Granby Shares Jump  i  Granby, shares took a jump on all  the exchanges during the past week  and will no doubt find their old level  n time.     A Vancouver paper  says:  The most interesting development  today was the big   rise in the prices  asked,for Granby  stock..   The  last  sale,of this stock  on  the  exchange  was made,at $34.75 on October 28,  but today the price asked, was $53,  and the stock was  bid   as  high  as  $.47^.    Announcements    have   recently been , made,. with   regard  to  the management, of this undertaking  which has given  every  satisfaction  to the  shareholders.    The  present  activity is   no   doubt  the   result, of  these announcements.     Besides this  rearrangement,   various   unsatisfactory reports as to the   financial   position of the  company   were   circulated, but these, have been emphatically  contradicted  and it. is   stated  that the company is in a very strong  financial position apd that many new  improvements in the   plant   will   be  carried out shortly.

Copper Shares  Referring to British Columbia  Copper a New York financial journal  says: The present, accumulation of  stock is believed to be against the  time when the company will pay  dividends, which seems to be not  far off, in view of the rapidly accumulating treasury surplus.
