INCREASE IN OUTPUT  OF TRAIL SMELTER  Treats 44,000 Tons of Ore in  August  W. D. Matthews, president of the  Consolidated Mining'& Smelting Co.,  after spending a few days looking over  the company's mines and mining properties in Rossland and the smelter and  refinery at Trail, left on Saturday for  his home in Toronto. During July  and August the gross output of the  smelter of the Consolidated Co., was  $985,000, as compared with $'135,000  for the same two months last year.  The tonnage smelted in July was 36,-  000 tons, in August 44,000 tons, the  latter being the largest quantity of ore  smelted in one month at the Trail  plant since it was established.  An addition is being made to the  lead refinery building, which is 250  feet in length and 50 feet in width.  This will give the refinery structure a  total length of 600 feet. The older  portion of the structure has a width of  50 feet. The addition is so arranged  that the traveling crane used will convey the bullion to the tanks before it  is refined and lift the refined lead out ;  in other words, the crane will run  through the entire length of the build  ing. There are now 240 working  tanks in operation and 180 are being  added. With the settling tanks, etc.,  there will be a total of sg6 tanks in  the refinery, ^he present capacity is  70 tons a day,("and when the addition  is completed and the additional tanks  in place it will have a . maximum capacity of 120 tons a day.  The lead refinery began operations  as an experimental plant in May 28,  1902, with 2S tanks, a capacity of 6}4  tons a day and with ten men on the  payroll. Now the capacity is 70 tons  ;i day, or about 2,000 tons a month.  Fifty men are employed and the re  finery is a pronounced' success. Since  it was smarted many improvements have  been made in the Belectrolytic process  used, and in addition to this numerous  labor saving devices have been adopted  10 much advantage and economy.  John F. Miller has been superintendent  of the refinery since it was started, has  grown up with the process, and has  every detail of it completely at his  fingers' ends.  The work of deepening the Golden  ,Rule shaft trom thejjs foot level has  been commenced and is making good  progress. The owners, George Agnew  and associates had an assay made on  Saturday, which showed that the better  class of ore from the mine goes $90.00  to the ton.���M.ner.  Boundary Side Lights  Rev. M. D.

The  map is handsomely printed   in   colors  on heavy map paper.   The information  upon it is corrected   up   to   ist  July,  1909.    A glance at the map will show  a person exactly how any  particular  area in   the  belt  stands, colors being  used to indicate lands that  have been  dealt with in any way.    For instance,  all homesteaded lands are   marked in  yellow;   sales,  special  grants,   mining  land sales are maiked  in  red;   lands  disposed of provincial   government   in  grey; Indian  reserves  in   pink; forest  reseives   and   parks   in  green   border;  timber berths in green hatching; grazing leases in   brown   hatching.    Th'.'re  are also figures as  to the acreage included under each  of these  Headings.  In addition, all available information  regarding railways, post offices and  topographical features of the provincial  lands adj-lining the belt have been inserted so that the. map provides useful  information with respect to a comparatively large part of the province, in  fact the map covers British Columbia  trom in nh of the railway belt right  down to the United Slates border, including the Boundary couimy, the  Arrow and Kootenay Lake region, and  the Crow's Nest district.  Snowshoe lodge, I.O.O.F., is making  preparations for its annual dance to he  held Thanks��iving m'uht, Oct. 25.

The Oroville,Gazette,;says ..that a  power company has been "formed to  ���harhrs's:-'the'-Si^ that  vicinity. The fact is^the'Similkameen  river has been kicking up> -its heels  around the ranges long enough and a  sel of harness or two ���on'" it here and  there along its length, wouldn't hurt it  a bit. 7  James McLaren of Kamloops spent  the past week in the district, visiting  his brother, D. D. McLaren, at Dead-  wood. Mr. McLaren is one of the  expert horticulturists in the province,  having been connected with a nursery  in Oregon for a number of years before  coming to British Columbia. He came  to the Boundary to look over the  Grand Forks nursery, and, if satisfactory make a purchase for the Harper  ranch near Kamloops. He gave an  order for ten thousand apple trees, and  says the trees of the Grand Forks nursery are the healthiest he has seen any  place. He also says that apples can  be grown in the interior of this province  of as fine a flavor as those of Ontario.  ���Ledge.  The excursion from Nelson Fair to  Riverside Nurseries at Grand Forks,  arranged.by the Nursery Co , and its  agents in the Kootenay, was, by the  suggestion of leading citizens here,  made the instance a demonstration of  the fruitfulness of this valley that was  as much a revelation to the citizens of  Grand Forks as to the visitors ' and to  even tho��e providing the exhibit, for  the collection when gathered certainly  surpassed even the most sanguine ex.  pectations of the enthusiasts in charge.  The occasion was also taken to show  these visitors around the valley and  they went home profoundly impressed  with the progress of the district as well  as amazed by its resources and ad  vantages.���Gazette.  GRAND MASTER LO.  OF. VISITS PHOENIX  Snowshoe    Lodge   Entertains  Wallace Law Thursday  Wallace Law of Vancouver, grand  master of the grand lodge of the Independent.Order of Oddlellowsol British  Columbia, paid an official visit to  Snowshoe lodge, No. 46; on Thursday  evening.  The proceedings of the lodge, which  included .iiegree work, were followed  by an excellent banquet in the lodge-  room. The ladies of the local Re  bek'ah lodge prepared a sumptuous  dejeuner, upon which tliey were much  complimented by those present. The  toast list included a splendid address  by the grand master and pithy remarks  from others present.  This was Mr. Law's first visit to this  part of the interior, and he expressed  much surprise in the great develop  ment evident. He was shown through  the mines yesterday, and in the evening drove to Greenwood, accompanied  by J. C. Tait and J. F. McDougall,  and will visit the lodge of that city.  TWO MILLIONS A YKAR  Boundary  Sum  Craw's Neil Coal Co. Spends Tbls Vast  '��� for Wages  7 The Crow's Nest Coal Co. spends  annually in wages and has expended iri  cash on capital account since opera  lions begun, over $5,006,000. The  daily output at present is 3000 tons of  coal a day, a considerable portion of  which goes into coke. Elias Rogers,  presfdenfof the cbnipany, says that in  three years, provided the government  wiHco-dperatey the company will be  spending $5,000,000 a year in wages  besides,adding considerable to its plant.  .; ijM.ri -Rogers stated that the reduc-  ���tiotvon the duty on coal recently made  by the United States will not be of  much benefit to producers in this province for. the present at least. The  duty was reduced from 60 to 45 cents  per ton, but no reduction was made on  coke, which forms an important part  of the industry in this province. The  company's product is a high-grade  cokinc coal, and it is from coke that  the company expects to makuits money.  ���".. To Improve Telephone Service  ; ._ A..L. .Littig, .traffic .superintendent.  for the B. C. Telephone company,  was in Phoenix during the early part  of the week, and in company with A.  Legault has been looking over the ser-1  vice generally in the Boundary with a  view to improving it. Among other  matters looked into was the service between Boundary points and Rossland-  and Nelson. The line goes by way  of the Great Northern railway and for  most of the distance through American  territory and is controlled by Americans. Mr. Littig will take the matter  up with the American owners of the  lines and endeavor to have a better  ment made in the service, so that in  the future there will be less cause for  complaint.  The uprights of Granby's new machine shop are now in position.,  Some good samples of high-grade  nre have been taken from' the Bounty  Fraction. -  ,���-���'  Good ore has again been located in  the shaft of the Buster claim, following  a small break in the lead.  Shipping from No. r Granby tunnel  was temporarily suspended on Tuesday  while some repairs were being  made;  No. 7 furnace at Granby, smelter  was blown in oh Thursday. '..No.78  will be blown in about  the  10th inst.  It is expected a shipment will shortly be made from the Rambler, where  operations have lately been confined  to a high grade vein.  Robt. Perry and Geo. Barrett, who  are developing the Kokoma claim, oh  the West Fork, claim to have uncovered a good vein of ore in a 30-foot  shaft.  George A. McLeod of Spokane, one  of the principals in the McKinley  Mines, Limited, visited the property in  Franklin camp. It is expected development will be resumed.  7 The Sally mine promises to be a  shipper of more splendid ore this winter. Stoping is now progressing on a  fine shoot in No. 6 tunnel. No. 7  tunnel, now in 300 feet, continues to  produce high-grade ore.  After an absence of two years R. R  Hedley, a pioneer mining engineer, has  returned to British Columbia from  Montreal. Mr. Hedley was one of the.  first mining men to predict the successful treatment of the low-grade copper-gold ores of the Boundary district,  long before the advent of a railway.  He was formerly rrmnager of the Hall  Mining & Smelting company at Nelson.'  GENERAL ELECTION  TO BE IN NOVEMBER  Provincial   Government   Will  Go to Country Next Month  It is understood that the provincial  government will go to the country in  November. Mr. Bowser, attorney-  general, and Mr. Taylor, minister of  works, have left Victoria on a speech-  making tour in the Lillooet and Cari  boo districts, which are Liberal strongholds.  PREMIER TALKS   ELECTION  In the event of an agreement being  reached for the extension of the Cana  dian Northern railway into British  Columbia before the end of the year.  'Premier McBiide intimated at Victoria that the legislature will be dissolved and an appeal made to the  country in November and December,  in order th.it no delay in construction  shall occur.  -5���-gii ^-Djim-i'i'^vv-syaffitryj"'^'" ~ r ���"  ^^58?^^  the  Tii��se prices art:  th ;  L> v..st   for  th"   S-as-.n   on  d fferent Fruits nam d, and we would a ivice  placing  your  order at   once.  I  WOW* THB RAILWAY CENTRE. OF ?;HK BOUNDARY  B. C. Copper at Kamloops .  The plans of the British Columbia  Copper company affecting Kamloops  camp will not be put into operation  until early next spring. This is largely due to the fact of the absorption of  the Dominion Copper company's  business.  Advice from the New York office is  to the effect-ihat-lhe optiaL!Stiba.t.;-l^��<?  been tsken on the local claims will be  temporarily suspended so as to allow  ! the company to recuperate from its  more recent transaction.  The report of the engineers who inspected tbe local camp was received  with the greatest measure of satisfaction at the head office and the officials  of the company feel confident that  they will have a rich field 'to exploit  when they come here. "It is an excel  lent proposition and I hope that we  will be able to take it up as soon as  possible," declared one of the New  York officials so that the citizens of  Kamloops have every reason to feel  satisfied with the result of the negotiations.���Standard.  B.CCfOPPER BLOWS   '  IN THIRD FURNACE  Expect to Treat Close to 2000  Tons Per Day  i The third furnace at the .smelter of  the British Columbia Copper company  was blown in- on Thursday and by .  next week the. management expect to  be treating close to 2000 tons of ore  per day.  .The ore tonnage from Mother Lode  mine has been increased and with ship  ments from the company's Oto Denoro, '  Lone Star and Napoleon properties as  well as custom  ore,   the smelter will  now run at full blast.  The Oro Denoro mine, which shipped as high as 400 tons per day during  1908 but has been off the shipping  list for several months, commenced  regular shipments to Greenwood smelter this week, the output for the week  being"300 lobs. ���'. About thirty men are  now employed at the mine and it is  expected the tonnage will gradually increase.  Manaaoth C.B.R. LacatMllva ��� ��  'In the course of about ,a month,'?  there will appear on the Pacific division  of the C.PiR7 one of the riiost remarkable locomotives on the continent of  America, and the heaviest engine in  Canada. It will be opereated between Revelstoke and Field, and will  be devoted exclusively to the hauling  of freight trains,'it being the aim of the  railway to handle more cars per train  over that section of the road than is  now. possible with existing power, ,  ; The new engine will be a Mallet articulated compound, and with tender  coal and water will weigh over'200  torts. The engine alone weighs over  365,000 pounds. This Mallet locomotive .really consists of two engines,  as the boiler is divided in the middle.  The body is very long and in order to  enable the engine to readily take '  curves, it is provided with a flexible '  joint located in the middle of the  boiler.  In the past it has  been found impossible to put heavier power in the  old type of engine  in service for the  reason that bridges  would  net stand  the extra weight confined in the short  body of the old  type  of locomotive.  The new long-body type  spreads the ,  weight over a greater length of rail v  and thus enables ihe heavier and much *^.  ;mbre powerful" engine to opeufte   o/ws* -  bridges with perfect safety.'      " ��  SERIOUS ACCIDENT YESTERDAY  Axel  Llljenberg  Crushed  on 300-Foot Level  of Qraaby Mine  Axel Liljenberg was the victim of  a serious accident in the Granby mine  yesterday morning, when he was  crushed between a motor car and the  side of a drift on the 300-foot level.  Just how the accident happened is not  clearly explained by even those close  at hand. His injuries are such that  his chances for recovery arc but slight.  The Deloy'a Comedlaas  The theatre goers of Phoenix will  be pleased to hear that the Deloys are  paying the city another visit. The  company is entirely new with the ex  ception. of the three Deloys. The  singing and dancing are the very best.  The wardrobe is entirely new and very  brilliant. Miss Myrtle Deloy, the bar*  tone singer, will render some of the  newest songs, she, as you all know is  without a doubt one of the best on the  road. The Merry Widow, Jr, will be  the offering on Tuesday night. This  play is well known to Phoenix theatre-  goeis that it requires no further des.  cription than the name Talla Deloy  will appear in the role of "the Widow,"  the part in   which  she is an expert.  Eddie Deloy and Alvin Beatty, the  comedians, are up tp the mark in  their respective parts. They assure  the people a full two hours of  laughter. The Deloy's are here for  two nights, presenting "Merry Widow,.  Jr.," and "Li Hung Chang," both being  full of wit, humor and vim. Every  theatre-goer should not miss either of  those performances.  ��7Z5raH5r!5ESZ5S5H5ZraSrl5r!52S3E5rlSH5HSasa��T^  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

Saturday; October 2,  1909  At present the mining' situatidn' in  the' BoViidaty/ and particularly'���' in'  Phoenix! is promising and bright." The  two Jeading producing, mines in, the  district will- considerably enlarge  ' their capacity, "while.' other producers,  temporarily off the shipping'list,'are  about'to'resume. Some' of the ' prop-  ertses, under development, are, reaching  commercial ore. Everybody is becoming :roor'e satisfied with conditions' pre-  , vailing,in the'camp, and all are happy  \ wh���ntti��pay days come1 around. Money  is getting to be more plentiful and.  while the merchants have,not felt the  improvement as quickly ,as. they ex  pected,'4t is nevertheless noticeable and  wfll^be'appreciably felt'in the fall and  win^r/tfad'e^:;-^^ ���.;    .".."Jr  "l,' s tViVS'1- *1����*"       .   .     -       _   .

Everyone should be a  booster,  not of the wildcat type, but of the kind  thatis not afraid of investigation,, and  . those who' have money should not  be  afraicl to chance it with eastern capital  in. opening  up  new   properties and  workirig old, mines .that are good,  but  are'idle for :want of energy and money  to'make them'give up' their -treasures.  ' - ��� yh  -''"21 -i" " - '  I   I SJSHSMSSSnHi^ssssM  A prospect, be it ever"so rich on the  < surface, is often a difficult and unsatis  ' factory thing to market.    The  public  ' have no .confidence in 'it and  would  prefer to buy some old' and   depleted  mine with a record.'   This'is   hardly  fair "to the* prospect)" which often  may  develop ifitoV rich" mine,' seeing  that  ' all,- rich"' mines were once prospects  ���   The 'prospector should   develop   his  prospect to a depth of at least 100 feet  or^more, and so partially prove the vein,  acid inspire confidence and have some  -thing more.legitimate to offer.    Pros-  peelers, on the other hand,   as a  rule,  prefer to open a number of prospects  by 10 foot holes, rather than   develop  any one of them.    They are sometimes  ,ja^aud-to go to any depth lest  the ore  may give out, or not show as   well as  on the surface.    A  promoter comes  along,  gathers   together  these unde  veloped prospects into' a group, gets  up a company, capitalizes them far beyond their prospective value and begins  to dig a long crosscut tunnel   1,000  feet below them and to erect  a mill  without any ore on the dump. He, too,  hesitates to go down to any depth on  his veins for the same  reason  as the  prospector, lest they should  play out  or prove not so good as that displayed  ' in   his  prospectus,  consequently  the  public buys a "pig in a poke," without  knowing or  without  any  positive or  satisfactory assurance of what they have  got, ' it being only  a prospect,  no\ a  blocked cut mine, or a mine at all, as  they suppose.���Mining Science.  The old Payne mine, the Slocan's  noted dividend payer, is expected to  be extensively developed before many  months.  ' The repairs at the Silver King mine,  of the damages caused by fire, are completed, and the property will go on the  shipping list soon.  The'first ore car ever brought into  the" interior-has arrived at Hazelton.  It was shipped in by Jim Cronin and  will be packed 60 miles to the Dibble.  < , W. O. Young, the mining man, who  has bonded a large number of claims  in the Kamloops camp is now up north  looking over certain mica deposits located at the head of Mica ere k.  ' Charles Connell, the veteran prospector of Rossland, is reported to have  located claims on the Hope summit assaying $400 to the ton. Gold, silver,  copper and lead were found in the  ledge which has a payslreak of twelve  inches.  \ A most important strike in the  Sheep Creek district is reported on the  ^Nugget, a lar^e producer. for the new  camp.' A four-foot lead, carrying very  high values, has been uncovered on  the fourth level, and the owners are  jubilant.

Women's Secrets  There is one man in the United States who has perhaps heard  more women's secrets than any other man or woman in the  country.    These secrets are not secrets of guilt or shame, but  the secrets of suffering, and'they have been confided to Dr.  R. V. Pierce in the hope ��nd expectation ot advice and help.  That few of these women have been disappointed in their expectations is proved by the fact that pinety*eigbt per cent, of  all women treated   by Dr. Pierce   have been absolutely and  altogether cured.   Such a record would be remarkable if the -  cases treated were numbered -by hundreds only.    But when  that record applies to the treatment of more than half-a- mil- ,  lion women, in a practice of over 40 yeara, it is phenomenal,  and entitles Dr. Pierce to the gratitude accorded him by women, as the first of  specialists in the treatment of women's diseases.
