Campbell, general manager of -the'- West Kootenay  Power & Light Co., spent a couple of  days in and .around Phoenix, looking  after matters in connection with the  construction of the double high tension  electric line, now being built into the  Boundary, some,75 or.80 miles from  Bonnmgton Falls on Kootenay river.  Mr. Campbell stated to the Pioneer  that good progress was being made on  t)ie* construction all along the right of  way of the new line.    Between  Ross-  land and Cascade especially, a distance  of, about 25 miles, which section   it is  desired to get in   working   order first,  to assist the Granby smelter in its present-shortage  of power   owing  to the  recent 40 per cent increase in smelting  capacity, the  poles are largely in position.    They are now also up between  Greenwood and Phoenix as well as on  other long stretches.  '���'..Whl'le.."iri   Phoenix 'Mr.   Campbell  saw the inauguration  of  construction  on the sub-station here, which is being  built directly south'of the Granby compressor building, from which the Gran-  by,* Porn'irjtion  Copper   Co. and other  mines in . this., carrip   will   be,served  with electric fluid, for power purposes.  The building will' be of  brick, 50x54  feet,in size, and.the   walls   will   be 40  feet.Jjigh, the  structure   being  somewhat larger than   the Cascade sub-sta-*  ,tion.h"ere^As the.curreaLwjlkcPmeiromr  ���the hydro-electrical works at  Bonnirig  .ton with 60,000 -volts, it   will require  considerable transforming apparatus to  step it down for commercial use.   The  Cascade.current..comes .into   Phoenix  at ?o,ooo volts, and is stepped down to  2,oqo volts.i   The- new. sub-station at  the Granby smelter  at   Grand   Forks  will be identical: in  size and construction with that' being built here.    J. B.  Henderson, .architecj, .oLGrand Forks,  is in charge  of the   sub-station  construction, which is being done by days'  labor. '���'"  Asked as to whether he would be  able to deliver current Xo the Granby  smelter by November ist, as expected,  Mr. Campbell.said:, 'fWe are bending  every energy to that end, but from the  heavy rains,now falling it would seem  the smelter will he. greatly helped cut  in its pow er shortage beforejthat date.'  Company Rebuilt 30 Miles of  Lines.  George C. Hodge, of Nelson, district manager of the British Columbia  Telephone Co., who was in the city  Thursday, says that the reconstruction  work of the company's lines in the  Boundary, which has been going on  most of the season; is now completed,  the force of ao m^n having gone to  Nelson, where the iystem is to be entirely rebuilt also. ,  Work was started in June last at  the International . Boundary line at  Cascade, and has continued uninterruptedly for four months, during which  time about to miles of new line were  built, to take the place of the old line  put in some seven or eight years ago.  The work has been-done in the most  modern and improved manner, the  company spending many thousands of  dollars to give the Boundary a better  telephone connection with the outside world. Heavy cedar poles have  been used throughout and have been  numbered.  The last phase of the work was tbe  installation of an 'exchange of some  twenty phones at Midway,- this making  four exchanges that'the company now  has in the Boundary, the others being  at Grand Forks, ' Greenwood and  Phoenix. ��� The .entire work has been  done under the direct. supervision of  Mr. Hodge   with S! Irwin as foreman.  In the early years of - the Boundary  there were three independent telephone  com|)anies operating here, and the  British Columbia-Co. is the sole sur  vivor. Since this company has had  the field to itself, the* service has been  greatly improved at a large cost to the  company. 0  The switching charge from Phoenix  to Midway will be 15 cents per minute  to'regular subscribers.

The  party consisted of officers and shareholders in tiie Hesperus Gold and  Copper Mines Co.,a corporation which  has.started the extensive, development  of the Betts and .Hesperus group of  copper-gold; properties on.. Hardy  mountain, a few miles from Phoenix.  In the party were Chailes J. Magee,'  president; M. S. Mossier, treasurer,  and John Clancy, director, being accompanied while inspecting their own  mines by T. H. Rea, the general manager of the company.  After spending a day or two at their  own mines, the party came to Phoenix  and looked at < the extensive development being carried on at the Granby  mines, having left for the coast and,  Portland fair before returning home.  President Magee stated to the Pioneer that he was well satisfied with' the  progress made on the company's properties since his last visit, some months  ago, and had every confidence that the  Betts and Hesperus would prove to  be one of the,large producers of the  Boundary when sufficient development  work had been done. The long tunnel being driven to crosscut the main  large ore body, is now in,over 700 feet,  and work is proceeding steadily. In  the tunnel one important ore body has  Purchased Phocalx Brewery.  Thed Biner arrived from Olympia  last Saturday, and this week completed  negotiations for the purchase of the  Phoenix brewery from Julius Mueller.  Mr. Biner and his sons will hereafter  conduct the business, having also a  practical brewer. The Biner family  left Phoenix about two years ago and  mo\ed to Olymyia, but the attractions  of the Boundary were "too much for  them, although the ywere all doing well  on Puget Sound.  Mr. Mueller built the brewery in  1899, and has since then conducted a  profitable business and improved the  buildings and plant to some thousands  of dollars. For the Isst two years or so,  however, Mr. Mueller's health has not  been of the best and a change was ordered hy his physician. In the course  of a month the family will go. south.  The price of the transfer of the business is not made public.  PRINCE HENRY  AND A6ERCRAIG  Novel  Plan For   Developing  Claims.

The gentlemen feel better satisfied  than everthat they have one of the  large propositions in this country of  big things in a mining way, and that  they will be able to furnish a large  tonnage at no very distant date. Careful sampling has demonstrated the  average value of the ore body to run  from $9 to $ 15 a ton, largely in copper, and the stripping already done on  the surface has proved the size of the  ore.  LAST CHANCE IS  LOOKING WELL  Secretary Rosenhaupt Visited  the Mine.  Sidney Rosenhaupt, of Spokane, secretary of the Spokane Boundary Mining Co.; owning and operating the-  Last Chance mine, located two or.  three miles   below   Phoenix,   was  in  For the month of September the  "output of the shipping mines of the  Boundary was considerably larger than  it was for the month of August���the  latter being below the- average on account of the ten days' shut-down at the  Granby smelter, to admit of connecting up the two new furnaces. The  total   for September  runs over 66,000  blast furnaces on account of insufficient  power���kept six furnaces going and  made its average six furnace output of  upwards of 50,000 tons. The B.C;  Copper Co.'s two furnace smelter also  treated the average monthly output of  the Mother Lode mine of some 13,000  tons. On the list are also several new  high grade shippers. Following are the  figures for September, as furnished tp  the Pioneer: . -,  Granby mines    52,630  E. P. U   ........          7��  3��  40             80      ,      20  Totals   Judge W. B. Townsend, who has  been making his headquarters in Phoenix for some time, as right of. way  agent for the Bonnington pole line,  went home to Rossland yesterday on  a visit to his family.  One  high  grade   property  in  the  Boundary is being operated on a somewhat unusual   plan, but  which  is apparently bringing about satisfactory results���at-least, so   far.-���A-syndicate  was  formed  and    divided    into   100  shares, the holder of each share agreeing to pay in $ 1 o per month to the development fund, thus furnishing $r,000  monthly! for operating expenses.'    If a  shareholder  drops  out  he loses whut  he has paid in, according to agreement.  The incentive is  to  stay in the syndicate, especially when a. member knows  his money is being   honestly spent on  a promising prospect.    The' $1,000 a  month thus provided, if kept  up and  expended judiciously, will go  a  long  distance towards  proving up the prospect���and it is more  than the man of  average means cares to invest   individually.    In short it gives  the members  of the syndicate a "fair  run   for  their  I money" in this co-operative manner.  This is just about what was done  with the Prince Henry and Abercraig  claims, located in the high grade belt,  just east of the Phoenix to Greenwood  wagon road, about a mile from the latter place. A syndicate was formed  and the property was bonded for $30,-  000 on favorable terms. Work has  been going on steadily for three or four  months with gratifying results. The  shaft is down .125 feet, and the ere  body is improving in size. It is the in- *  tentioh to make a test shipment at no  distant date, the average test so far  having given from $40 to $130 per ton  in gold and silver, the former being the  lowest assay yet made.  G. Arthur Kendell is the chairman  of the syndicate, with Dr. J.E.Spankie  as secretary-treasurer. Among others  holding syndicate shares are Patrick  Welch, G. B. Taylor, A.W.Haley,  W. H. Jeffery, D. J. Darraugh, etc. So  far there has been little or no trouble  in disposing of the syndicate interests,  chiefly among residents of Greenwood  and Phoenix.

The  Last Chance is on the shipping list,  and no dissatisfaction is expressed with  the returns. This week a two car  shipment, was sent out to the Hall  smelter at Nelson. Development of  the property is being continued as usual.  just as Mr. Rosenhaupt was about  to take the train for Spokane yesterday, on receiving a telephone report  that Mr. McVicar had fallen down the  shaft, breaking a leg nnd two ribs,  he returned at once to the mine.  R. H.Karatofsky returned last night  f om a three weeks trip to the Porllt'nd  Fair.

Mr. Rumberger placed the  surface pfhis-Cimeron .-claiiii on the  marktif,'arid sold nearly all of it almost before-the surveyors' stakes .had  been driven- The Old Ironside^ town-  site was also placed on the market immediately afterwards, and the lots  there were, also snapped up by investors.  \Vlien the Dominion Copper Co.  was originally organized in; 1898 by  Messrs: Mackenzie, Mann, Cox, Taf-  fray and o'.hers, for the purpose of operating what is now known as the  Brooklyn group in this camp, our present mayor then began to reap a, part  of his well earned reward for his long  wait here, some, of his mineral holdings being purchased by the company.  . When Phoenix was incorporated as  a'cily in 1900 Mr. Rumberger was  chosen by atclamation as the first  mayor, and at every election since that  time he has been elected to succeed  himself, the present being his sixth  term in that office.  No one in the Boundary is betttr informed regarding our mines and mining.properties than is G. W. Rumberger. Living here for over fourteen  years, knowing all the old time prospectors, and, indeed, having handled  pick and drill himself for many a day,  he has made a study of tbe business,  and today has extensive and valuable  mining Interests.

Just why any trian, especially a news*-  paper man of experience, should start  a second daily-paper in Rossland is  not easy to understand Hardly any  one needs to be told that -one daily  paper is all that any interior city _ol  the province ;can suppport properly,  and, like most Others, the Rossland  Miner has had its hands full in breaking even with the world. At least that  is the common idea. Perhaps Hugh  Aitken, the man behind the pen with  the Rossland Star, was so disgusted  with being turned down as the Liberal  candidate in the recent, by-election in  Alberni that he wished to try a . new  field. If be can make" it stick in  Rossland���the Miner being also  Liberal in politics-f he will be a good  one.

The Greenwood Times fathers the  following: -  Alex. McDonald and Jim Moran  were doing assessment on a claim up  Tw;n creek this month. One morning  they struck a soft piece of ground and  the dirt flew pretty lively for a couple  of hours. During the rest that followed Alex remarked that it was a pretty  good morning's work; Jim replied :"Sure  man, thai'd be two assissments for Big  Dan and a crown grant for Mulligan!"  The Pacific Monthly gives the following about a pessimist:  The pessimist is a coward. He is  afraid to do because of results. He  lacks courage, he lacks decision of  character and, if he knew it, he lacks  his own self respect. Every atom of  nature is optimistic. We cannot conceive of pessimism existing in nature.  The birds sing, the flowers laugh,  and even the dead grass of trie dry and  parched prairie holds out an optimistic  thought. The pessimist is a blot on  the earth, a reproach to the light and  a destroyer of action.  WortUnl Man's  Family Medicine.  cine.
