One of the oldest residents of Phoenix is about to leave camp  and  seitle  in Arizona.    Shortly after  the first of  November  John   F. Hememvay, who  came to I'hoenix over five years ago,  will take up his residence at the cit>  of Prescott, Arizona, where he has accepted a responsible position as financial agent of a strong  New York syndicate now   opeiating   some   copper  groups in that vicinity.    One of these  croups of claims adjoins the now famous United Verde copper mines, owned by Senator Clark, of Montana, and  said to be the richest copper mines in  the world.  Mr. Hemenway came to Phoenix in  ��� 897. '�� the employ of the Miner-  Graves syndicate, then commencing  operations on the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill. He has thus seen those  properties grow from veritable pros  pects that nine out of ten mining ex*  pens turnad down, to the gigantic  propositions they are today, capable of  producing copper at the rate of fifteen  million pounds annnually.  From the first Mr. Hemenway was  the financial agent of the four companies of the Miner Graves syndicate-  operating in this camp, up to the time  of the fanning of present Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power  Co., Ltd., and has always held positions of tiust. He has been prominent in social, Masonic, fire department and sporting circles, and both he  and Mrs. Hemenway will be missed by  the many friends made during their  residence in the Boundary's chief mining camp.  WILL BUILD I  SURE SOON  I  Boundary Mining Notes.  V., V. & E. Coming to Phoe*  nix Without Delay.  SO SAYS J. A. MANLY OF GRAND FORKS  Hill is After Tonoaje, and as Soon as He Un  Get entrance to Oranby Smelter, Work'  on Phoenix Branch Will Start.  FERNIE MINERS SAID TO BE SATISFIED.  HAY and GRAIN  * Hiter-Wrick CoB  PHOKN1X  GREENWOOD  GRAND FORKS  SANDON  Less Than Half of the Mine Force Wish to  Change Back.  Last week's issue of the Fernie Free  Press gives the following account ofthe  vole taken by the coal miners at Fernie, as to whether they preferred*'to  change to the old system in vogue before the "strike:  For %x/t hours underground    33  For 8 hours underground 129  Cast no vote .    .....-....'.. 108  The above is the result of the vote  taken on Saturday last, as to whether  the men employed at the Coal Creek  mines, continue to work 8y�� hours underground as they have been for the  past two months, or go back to the old  system in force' before the strike, of 8  hours underground, according to the  agreement between the minersand Mr.  Tonkin two months ago. '  As will be noticed by the figures the  result is not satisfactory to either side.  The miners claim that they are now entitled to the old system, but the management maintahs that those not voting show by their indifference that they  are perfectly satisfied with the present.  A committee of the employees met Mr.  Tonkin on Wednesday evening with a  view lo finally settling the nutter and  the committee will report to the union  tonight. The general manager went  into the question thoroughly.  He showed the committee that the  miners at Fernie were making better  wages than in any other mining camp  in the country. During the month ol"  September there were fifty-seven miners  employed in No. 1 mine and the aim  o'unt earned by them reached $6,760 -  Go, averaging $120.71 per month  for each man. The tolal number of  shifts for the month was 1,295, making  an average of $5.18 6-10 a shift  for each man. The highest wage earn  ed by any miner during the month was  $172.50 and the lowest the handsome  sum offiot.go, The highest wage per  day earned by any miner was $7.06,  while the lowest was $4.08,  How the matter will end it is  difficult to say.    Some of the  miners  are  not satisfied with the way the vote on  the question was taken,   but it  is the  opinion of most of those who are willing to express themselves on the subject that the union will let the matter  drop and the present system will  continue.    A number of men  are afraid  that the car system now in force will  be weakened as soon as the mines are  in full operation, and that the present  wage scale will be cut down. Mr. Tonkin assures us that he had no intention  of doing anything of the kind.   He has  alieady purchased 400 cars to be added to the present stock, and in  regard  to the wage scale he is prepared to enter into a two year agreement with the  men on the matter. 1  John A. Manly, the father of Grand  Forks, who has done more than  any  other one man (or the building up of  that place, was a  visitor  in,$ Phoenix  last Wednesday for the first.' tims in  over a year.    He saw many evidences  of progiess in this place in th^t time. .  In conversation with a Pioneer mari,  Mr. Manly remarked that it'was sure  that the Great Northern wonld get permission to cross the Kettle Valley and  C. P. R. tracks at Grand Forks at the  meeting of the railway committee to be  held at Ottawa on the 28th inst., when  the matter would come up,  and that  immediately thereafter the work on the'  spur to the Granby smelter and on the  Phoenix branch of the Great Northern  (or V., V. & E.) would be started. He  had the most positive assurance of this,  and was confident that it would occur.  At the same time Mr. Manjy believed  that it was wise  lor the boards of  trade in the Boundary to strengthen  the hands of the V., V. & E.'fby sending strong resolutions to  Ottawa endorsing that company's stand in the  I matter.     Mr. Manly thinks the Great  Northern is likely to get a slice of the  Granby tonnage as soon as, they  can  handle-it, and consequently . tliey  arr*  desirous of getting at the railway'build  ing as soon as the courts will allow it.  * -.Mr.. Manly -was chief eagineep Jor  the Kettle Valley Lines,  the Grand  Forks-Republic railway that T. W. Holland has just resigned from the management of, after getting it into financial  and other kinds of trouble..     But Mr.  Manly was bright enough to  see  the  breakers ahead and got out before the  final acts in the farce comedy were put  on the boards.  ���'Dad" Price'a Visitor.  Thomas   Price,  known   as   "Dad'  Price; came in from the village of Fife,  on  Christina   like,'on   Wednesday's  train, for the purpose of figuring on the  contract to be Jet for the new  spur for  the Granby mines.  Mr. Price is an old  railroader,    having    contracted     all  through the west, but has now  settled  down to farming on the shores of beautiful Lake Christina, some eight or ten  miles above Cascade.    He is still confident, also, that with capital the Christina lake section, which has now been  neglected for a number  of years, will  eventually be a great mineral producer,  as the wprk that has been done has given most encouraging results.     Almost  no work in a mineral way is now going  on theie, as the prospectors and claim  owners have became  discouraged, but  in his opinion, its day is coming, when  it will surprise the world, as the Boundary proper is now doing.  This week's shipments fiom the  Snowshoe are the largest but one in  the history of the properly, being 1,080  tons for the seven days.  The new electric hoist lo be installed at the main shaft of the Snowshoe,  for which the foundations are being  excavated, will be one of the largest  in the Boundary.  Boundary mines are now shipping at  the rate of 1,800 tons of ore per day,  and inside of a month the daily shipments of ore should reach at least  2,500 tons per day.  A report comes from Fairview that  two tons of Nickel Plate ore* Camp  Hedley, were recently run through  the Stemwinder mill as a test, and as  was expected, gave much better returns than Stemwinder ore.  The force at the, B. C. mine, Summit camp, has been reduced to about  45 men, and the ore is being shipped  .to the Sunset smelter. An excellent  ore find was made on this property a  few days ago in theundeiground workings.;  A second furnace was blown in at  the Gianby smelter last Saturday, mak-  twb now in operation. The other two  are still idle, awaiting the coming of  the power from Cascade. Granby  mines shipments are about 750 tons  daily now. '  It is asserted that G. M. Bennett,  who recently relocated the Waterloo,  in camp McKinney, can make it stick,  because the company allowed its free  miners' certificate to lapse. The property is equipped with valuable machinery, and the claim itself is well spoken  of generally.  John Hays Hammond, the English  mining expert, is expected to visit the  Stemwindei gioup, in Fairview camp,  shortly, in behalf of the English syndicate that recently obtained an option  on the group at'$8oo,ooo.- - The deal  will net stockholders 23 cents pei  share.  Thtee cars of, machinery for the  Granby mines passed Moose'-'-Jaw on  the C. P.. R. this week, and.should arrive in-Phoenix early next week. The  shipment includes the parts for the  immense electrically driven ore crusher, to be. installed at the Knob Hill  mine.  At the Mother Lode the maximum  rate of shipment, something over 750  tons of ore daily, is being sent down  to the company's smelter at Greenwood. This rate crowds the force at  the mine which-is being worked seven  days in the week. A little later it is  expected that the men will be able to  lay off Sundays.  Preparations for heavier shipments  of ore from the Emma are being made  by Manager Morrison.   Work is under  way on   the  new ore  bunkers, which 1  are modeled after  those at the B. C.  mine, being the same  size.    At  present four cars daily are being shipped  to the Nelson smelter, which  concern  is prctically operating the property.  AND STILL  MORE SPURS  C. P. R. Making Efforts to hold  Traffic.  EVERY ACCOMMODATION FOR MINES  Evidence Accumulatlog'That Canada's Greatest  Railway Is Anticipating the Advent of tbe  Great Northern Line to this Camp.  To the casual observer it appears as  though the C. P. R. was fully aware  that the time is coming���and coming  fast���when the V., V. & E. railway,  or Great Northern, will be a factor in  the ore haulage from Phoenix camp.  Canada's greatest railway now seems to  be perfectly willing to give every accommodation to the/shipping mlnoo ot the  Boundary, in the shape of spurs, sidetracks, etc., and loses no time in putting them in, too. .Every once in a  while something new in this line in this  vicinity is reported, and soon thereafter the work is undertaken and completed.  .'' '  This week work was begun on two  long sidetracks iri the Phoenix yards,  which will give much more trackage  facilities for the purpose of hauling the  increasing tonnage from this point. At  the same time they are working on new  spur for the Emma mine, that will hold  eight or ten cars, and will soon be  finished.  The iron is on the ground for the  new Snowshoe spur, and will be laid  at an early date, the length of this spur  being 1,500 feet. A Y and perhaps  a turntable will be put in near the Phoe  nix depot, and the C. P. R. is also getting ready to spend considerable money  in giving the Granby mines additional  spur room.  Altogether, the C. P. R. is conserving its interests as much as possible,  and is doing everything it can for the  convenience of the shipping mines,  which of course is appreciated.  Bought the Fashion Stable. ,  A deal was completed' this week by  which  Murdoch   Mclntyre and Alax  McDonald bought out the interest of  Johnson &  Landon in  the Fashion  Livery Stable, the new proprietors taking possession at once.   Messrs. Mclntyre & McDonald are old residents  of the city, having conducted the stage  line between Phoenix and Greenwood  two years ago.   Mr. Johnson had only  purchased the interest of J. K. Fraser  in the stable some two weeks previous.  Arrangements were also  made by  John Collins, proprietor of the Palaee  Stable, to dispose of his interests, to  Mclntyre &  McDonald, but after the  papers were drawn  up, some   hitch  arose in connection with  the transfer  of the lease, the landlord being James  McArdle, of Grand Forks,   Up to yesterday afternoon an  agreement had  not been reached.  Will Bless the Bell Sunday.  The naming and blessing ofthe new  bell for the futuie Catholic church-in  Phoenix, will take place next Sunday  at 8 p. m. in Miners' Union Hall.  This interesting and pleasing ceremony  will be conducted by his lordship A.  Dontenville, Bishop of New Westminster, assisted by Rev. Father J. A.  Bedard, O. M. I. All are cordially  invited.  The new Catholic church bell which  is to be blessed next Sunday, was purchased from the C. S. Bell Co., Hill-  boro, Ohio. It is made of an alloy of  cast steel and crystal metal peculiar to  that firm, and is the very best of its  class. The bell is 50 inches in diameter and weighs 336 pounds, complete,  except ropes, the bell and mountings  weighing 570 pounds.  Later���As we go to press, it is  learned that the bishop could not make  connections, and the service will be  postponed till Sunday, October 26th,  at the same time and place.  ��.�������.  LOCAL JOTTINGS  1  ������������ �������������� *������������ ��������!  '"J  Settling Great Coal Strike.  This week President Roosevelt named a commission of six to adjust and  arb'irate the difference between the coal  miners and operators in Pennsylvaiva.  The indications, therefore, are that the  great slike will soon be. settled.  WORSE PLACES THAN PHOENIX.  Council Met Saturday.  A special meeting of the city council  was called last Saturday morning, J. E.  W. Thompson acting as clerk, and Aldermen Rogers and McRae being absent. The resignation of Health Officer Gordon, on account of his going  away for three months, was accepted,  and a vote of thanks tendered him. A  bill was presented for Ed. Forrest, asking for remuneration for services in  looking after the scarlatina case and  as guard, and the mayor appointed Aldermen Marshall and Birnie as a special committee to look into the matter.  The following accounts were ordered  paid: C. P. R. Telegraph, $1.40; V.  & N. Tel. Co., $16.00; A. S. Sercu,  $g; N. Lemieux, $48; Hunter-Ken-  drick, $48; Morrin, Thompson & Co ,  JiS-75-  The acting city clerk was authorized  lo sign city checks in the absence of  City Clerk Matheson on hjs b,rid,al ujp,  Alderman John McRae Returned From a Ten  Days' Trip.  Councilman John McRae came in on  Wednesday's train from Spokane and  other points, having been absent from  Phoenix for ovei ten days.   One of his  objective points was Marysville, in East  Kootenay, where he stayed a couple of  days visiting his sister.   He thinks the  attempted   building   of the   Sullivan  smelter at Marysville was the  greatest  fizzle of the year, it being apparent  to  even a novice that the money was frittered away.    Ahnost the last man and  woman have  moved  away  from   that  town in  consequence of the smeher  having been given up for the  present,  great hardships having  been  entailed  on those who have invested there. The  new   weekly  paper,  the Tribune, of  course, also had to suspend publication  While away, Mr. McRae visited Nelson,   Moyie,   Cranbrook,   Marysville,  Kimberly, Bonner's Ferry and Spokane,  and he states that since this little trip  he thinks there are places that are much  worse off in a business way than Phoenix���in fact, right now there are  few  of them as good.    At Kimberly he was  told that but a few men are at work at  the North Star mine  near  there, and  not  a  man  is employed in   Moyie.  Cra.nb,i'Ppk is n railway town, and gets  no little benefit from that fact.  Is Giving Away Watches.  In prosecuting its plan to build up  the largest circulation in the Kootenay,  and incidentally, in observance of its  seventh anniversary, the Trail Cieek  News is giving to each; new subscriber  a watch. It is not a full jeweled 18  karat gold watch, but is a neat, pei feet-  running time-piece. It is guaranteed  for one year and if it fails to keep accurate time during that period, it will  be exchanged for a new one. The  guarantee is that of the. largest watch  company in the United States. The  subscription to the News is $2 per year,  upon receipt of which a watch will be  forwarded, together with the Trail  Creek News for one year. It's a good  watch for man or boy. Remittance  should be forewarded by express or  postal order, to Trail Creek News,  Trail, B. C.  New Millinery Store.  The ladies of Phoenix will kindly  lake notice that we have leased the  store adjoining McKenzie's drug store,  in the McAuliffe building, and are now  displaying some of the nicest creations  in fall and winter hats yet seen in the  Boundary.

It is now almost absolutely certain that for 1902 there will be an increase of at least fifty per cent over the  1901 total, or $3,000,000. And this  notwithstanding the various drawbacks  to the industry during this last summer.  Advertising is the life-blood of business.  Newspaper advertising is the most  nutritious food for a growing business.  . Advertising is like a buzz saw. A  careless man can speedily have hi;, ieg  jerked off.  Keep track of what other advertisers  in your line are doing, but do not follow in their tracks.  You cannot increase your business  by sitting back in a dark corner and  complaining of dull trade.  Talk success in your advertising. A  word here and there about the way you  have succeeded in selling the advertised article .will beget confidence.'  Advertisments inserted in good mediums are like seed planted  in fertile  soil.    Even though they bring no re  suits at once, they count for the future.  PROVINCIAL NOTES  The Nelson Tribune asserts that the  mine managers of Kossland, by continually shouting about governmental  oppression of the mining industry in  this province���which is done to cover  their own shortcomings���are doing no  little harm. We believe the mining  lavs can be improved, but there is  much force in the Tribune's contention,-nevertheless. *  The appointment of a deputy minister of mines by_ Col. Prior is a move in  'the right direction. This province is  too large for the minister of mines to  keep in touch with the many sections  personally and still attend to his Victoria duties, and if the deputy is kept  in the field, it should serve a good purpose. The new appointee is R. F.

Mrs. E. J. Duchesnay, widow ofthe  late superintendent of the C. P. R. at  Revelstoke, has sued the C. P. R. for  $25,000 for damages, her husband having been killed in a railway tunnel.  The B. C. branch of the Navy  League offers a gold medal for the be��*t  President Baer, of the combination  of coal operators in the far east, has  run up against the real thing in the  person of Governor OJell, of New  York. Baer persists lhat he will not  budge the least inta from his position  in this greatest of all coal mineis'  strikes, if the right of the men to organize is granted. He forgets, evidently, that no greater or more arro  gant combination or union exists on  the American continent today than his  coal combine, which is believed by all  fair minded people to be the teal  cause ofthe widespread distiess in the  east, consequent'upon the coal miners'  Strike. According to Baer it is all  right for the capitalists to combine,  but all wrong for the men who dig the  dusky diamonds to do likewise.    .,  ���M  But Governor Odell does not see it  in that light���like most reasonable  people���and if Baei does not c)imb  down from his high horse, hi will not  only have the miners to fight, but the  great states of New York and Pennsylvania, and possibly the authorities  at Washington, D. C, also.  Few people realize the mere pittance  which the coal miners in the east gel  for their dangerous labor.- Statistics  show us that taking it the year around  the average wage paid to the Pennsylvania coal miner is 51 cents per day !  Think of it., Only four bits per day  to risk life and limb in the struggle  for a bare existence. Is it any wonder that white men are being gradually driven out of the coal mines, theii  places being -aken by the scum of the  European countries.  Harry Lindley, who recently spent a  couple of weeks in Boundary towns,  had time to observe the conditions  prevailing in each. He acknowledged  freely the advantages of each, but asserted that the outlook for Phoenix is  brighter than any of- the others, for  the reason that it is the heart of the  mining industry of the Boundary���the  place where the mines are. Mr. Lindley was about,tp leave for Rossland,  and had no axes to grind..  Some editor with time .to burn has  found out the following of the letter "e."  The fifth letter on the alphabet, "e,"  is the most unfortunate letter in the  English alphabet, because it is never  in cash and always in debt and never  out of danger. We must not forget  though that the aforesaid letter is nevei  in war but always in peace. It is the  beginning of existence, the commencement of'ease and the end of trouble.  Without it there is no meat, no bread,  no heaven. '  Phoenix Federal Labor Union   No. 155.   Meets Thursdays at 8 p. in. al Miners' Union Hall.   ED. BROWN. Pics. AUGUhT 1'II.GHK. Sec'y.

PHOENIX PIONEER,  ~y    PHOENIX, B.CA'-'  u .Cues  gone  n a luiile endeavor to regain his health,  lie went theie seveial months ago, having fallen a victim to that fatal malady  which drives so many of its piey to the  south in a vain attempt to escape from  its clutches.  ���Villi the death of Mr. Brown, the  cuitain has fallen on a  biief but ex-  tiemely spectacular career,  as  replete  with dramatic incident as the life ofthe  most noted characteis  of the  mimic  lealm.   He was known from the Coeur  d'Alenes to the Transvaal,  from  Victoria to Johannesburg, the  "gold  reef  city," where the most sensational incidents of his career occurred.   It was in  mining circles that he was more widely  known.    His full name was Robert E.  Lee Brown, and he was born in Philadelphia.    He was thirty-seven years of  age, and leaves a widon, but no children.  It was in 1888 that Mr. Brown  first  came to the west.    He   was  a  young  mining engineer, and his  keenness of  intellect   and  spectaular   attainments  soon forged him to the front, and made  him a striking figure  in   mining life.  He started a paper at Wallace, Idaho,  and called it "The Barbarian."     Mri  Brown was interested in a  number of  mining ventuies in the west,  but  met  with only indifferent success. He merged his paper with one conducted   by  Harold Bolce, of Spokane.    After the  panic came on   in   1893   Mr.   Brown'  went to Chicago,   where   for a short  time he   was interested  with   "Coin"  Harvey in the publication of a financial  paper called "Coin."  In about   1894   he  went  to South  Africa.  He was there during the Jamie-  son raid, and stood by the  side of the  Boer government during.that turbulent  period.   He was an exceedingly prominent figure then.   He advised all Americans to have nothing to do with   the  Jamieson raiders, and   was  a  sort  of  mediator between the Kruger government and the Jameison raiders after the  trouble was over. It was largely through  his   instiumentality   that  John   Hays  Hammond and  V. S. Clement weie  pardoned by  President  Kruger  after  having been convicted of high treason.  In the meantime Brown   had  been  making money in Johnnesburg, and at  the time ofthe Jamieson raid he was a  wealthy man.    The Boer government  threw a laige quantity of land open to  mineral  entiy about  this   time,  and  Biown organizing a   number of men,  enteied on a vast amount of it.     His  "flying wedge" of humanity,   used in  getting to the recording office fust, when  the miiieial lands were located, is now  an old story.     Then the Boer government, forgetting his loyally to it in time  of trouble, refused to recognize his entries and set them aside.  Brown promptly brought suit in the  Transvaal courts to recover damages  from the government, and after considerable litigation was awarded judgment for $5,000,000 by the Supreme  Court ofthe Transvaal. This judgment  President Kruger arbitrarily set aside,  and Brown had never,, up to the time  of his death, realized anything on it.  The judgment was not  awarded   until  The Le Roi's profits lor August were  $79.4S6.  Ore shipments from the Slocan total  22,500 tons.  The Payne mine has increased its  force to 100 men.  Last week's ore shipments from Sandon mines were 261 tons.  The Old Gold has shipped 15 tons  of ore to the Trail smelter.  Montreal capitalists will develop an  amber discoveiy in B. C.  The story to the effect that the Mor-  rissey coal will not coke is incorrect.  Operations are to be resumed on the  Hartney group, New Denver, at an early  date.  A syndicate has been formed at Vancouver to develop the oil fiilds of southeast Kootenay.  It is reported that M. S. Davys has  stiuck a bonanza in the Silver King  mine at Nelson,  A rich deposit of cinnabar is reported to have been struck in surveying  the Nanaimo-Alberni railway.  The Laborers Co-operative Association expects to blow in their smelter at  Golden on New Years Day.  The Lardeau country has made great  er advances this year than in any two  previous years of its history.  Rossland's ore shipments ., for last  week were 8,072 tonsy passing the quarter million markfor this year.  The hydraulic season in the vicinity  of Fort Steele has been good, and there  is every indication of an increase in the  gold output for the current year.  Ore to the value of $50,000 was shipped from the Lardo last month. ; In all  350 tons. The principal shippers were  the Nettie L., Silver Cup and Triune.  The Sullivan -Group  company  has  suspended all work on the smelter and  on the mines at Marysville, until next  spring. " AU'hands have been paid off.
