Lumber is beginning to arrive for  the new office and warehouse for the  Dominion Copper Co. in this camp.   ,  Last Monday the diamond drill was  started in operation at the Skylark  mine, two or three miles from Phoenix.  This week the Snowshoe mine  shipped 2,490 tons of ore to the Trail  smelter and 2,660 tons to the B. C.  Copper Co.'s smelter.  The regular monthly payday for the  Snowshoe and War Eagle mines occurred, as usual, last Tuesday, when  $18,000 was distributed in wages.  Boundary copper *mines have shipped  more than five and a half millions tons  of ore, running over a million for this  year alone. This is equivalent to more  than 100,000,000 pounds of refined  copper.  This week the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter treated 6,603 tonsi as follows:  Mother Lode, 4,25c tons; Napoleon,  169 tons; Emma, 99 tons; Lone Star,  15 tons; Snowshoe and custom, 2,070  tons.  Now that the Dominion Copper  Co.'s smelter is out of commission for  the time being, the B. C; Copper Co.  is able to get additional supplies of  coke from Coleman, much improving  the situation at that smelter cokewise.  Early this week the Granby smelter  had four furnaces banked. There is  plenty of coke and plenty of ore, but  the railways fell down badly on hauling  the ore. By Wednesday the full  battery of eight furnaces was in commission again.  Boundary copper shares are still at  low figures, in common with others.  Granby is quoted at 85 to 100, B. C.  Copper at 4^ to 5^*3 and Dominion  Copper at 2 ^ to 3 %, being great  bargains, and the lowest figures at which  they have sold this year.  This week the long expected double  shift was put at work on the Victoria  hoist of the Granby mines, for the  first time, and the No. 2 hoist, which  has done heavy service for some ten  years, more or lese, was placed on retired list, except for occasional use in  lowering powder, tools, etc.    >x     ^  F.  P.   Buck, formerly  president of  the.    Phoenix... Amalgamated    Copper  Mines, Ltd., which last spring sold its  War Eagle group of a dozen claims to  the Consolidated Mining and Smelting  Co. of Canada, Ltd., has been added  to the board of directors of the latter  company, now operating the Snowshoe  and VVar Eagle groups in this camp.  Pipe lines have been laid and work  has started on a long tunnel, well down  the hill from the shaft on the War  Eagle property, being operated by the  Consolidated Co. here. With much  of the outside work done, in preparation for winter operations, a few men  were laid off at the War Eagle this  week.  AMALGAMATION  AGAIN RUMORED  B. C. Copper and Dominion Copper*  COMING AND GOING  A. B. W.  this week.  Hodges  visited Rossland  Latter Stops Work, But Only  Temporarily.  Last Tuesday orders were received  from the officials of the Dominion Co.,  in New York, to close the company's  mines and smelter in the Boundary,  the latter being located at Boundary  Falls. W. C. Thomas, the manager,  accordingly issued the necessary instructions, and 'the last shift was  worked by the men on the 15th.  Whether the low price of copper was  the cause of the closing, is not stated.  Rumors have been current, however,  that an amalgamation ofthe Dominion  Copper Co. with the British Columbia  Copper Co. is in the air.  It is stated that, President Warner  Miller, of the Dominion Copper Co.,  with the vice-president, H. H. Melville, and possibly' some other directors, are leaving New York this week,  and will come direct to the Boundary,  when something definite regarding the  plans of the company for the future  will probably be made public. M. M.  Johnson, consulting engineer for the  company, who was' here last week, left  Sunday for Salt Lake City, but will  return about the time that President  Miller arrives.  In accordance with the orders, Supt.  Rundberg has laid off the men employed at the company's Rawhide and  Sunset mines, those at the Mountain  Rose, Brooklyn and Idaho having been  laid off two or three weeks ago, when  the two smaller furnaces at the smelter  were blown out, to permit of, as stated,  turning them into one larger furnace.  Last week it was decided to blow out  the 700-ton furnac^e and blow in the  two smaller ones ^for a few days, and  then place the large furnace in commission and dismantle the smaller and  older ones, in preparation for enlargement.    This   was   being  done  when  orders to atop cvcrything.were.received.  Asked as to how long the closedown would be likely to last, Manager  Thomas stated that, as he had received  ho orders to make a clean up around  the smelter, it did not appear that it  would be of an extended nature. Altogether about 350 men are thrown  out of employment by the Dominion  Copper Co. stopping work at both  mines and smelter.  Will Continue Construction.  Thomas   on   Thursday  stated  Joseph L. Martin and John Simpson, B.A., took a run down to Grand  Forks Thursday.  Cj C. Woodhouse, a mining man  from Republic, was registered at the  Hotel Brooklyn yesterday.  Harry P. Dickinson, of Rossland,  powder man, was making his .monthly  call in camp last Wednesday,  Jeff Davis, one of the leading mer  chants of Grand Forks, was looking  over this camp last '-Wednesday.  Supt. Philip D.Ahier, of theCariboo-  McKinney mine, recently made a trip  to the Okanagan and became a benedict. :.  Mrs. William McGillivray and children, who have been spending some  weeks in Spokane, returned Thursday  evening.  Charles E. King returned from  Kaslo this week, and has accepted a  position at the Dominion hotel with C.  H. Flood.  Miss Myrtle Noble, of Victoria, who  has been visiting her sister, Mrs. D. J.  Matheson, for some time past, returned  to the coast on Thursday.  James H. Kennedy, chief constructing engineer of the V. V. & E. railway,  with his secretary, K. G. Hankinson,  were visitors here Wednesday.  James McNulty left Thursday on a  trip to hrs properties near the Nickel  Plate mine, Camp Hedley, accompanied by Charles A. McClung.  George D. Turner and wife returned Wednesday from a vacation  which was spent at Coleman, Alberta.  He reports the coal country as looking  very prosperous.  H. W. Sharp, ofthe Sharp & Irvine  Co., the well known Spokane mining  brokers, was a visitor in camp yesterday, on a tour through the British  Columbia mining districts.  Sam White, who arrived here a few  weeks ago to make his home, returned  to Aberdeen, Wash., by Sunday's train,  where he will close out his business  affairs and be back in Phoenix shortly  with his family.  Robert Carmichael, of the local  staff of the Eastern Townships Bank,  goes overto the new branch at Keremeos today where T- A. R. Rome  has just started business. Mr. Car-  michael's place here is taken by A. D.  Strutzel.  VOTED FOR  $50,000 BONDS  Annual Meeting of the  Providence*  Boundary Side lights  Old Officers Elected and Report Was Submitted.  On Tuesday of this week the annual  meeting of the shareholders of the  Providence Mining Co., Ltd., was held  at Greenwood, Mark F. Madden, of  Chicago, attending and presiding.  Others present were Charles Kinney,  J. D. Spence, Will Madden and W. S.  Macy. The annual report was submitted and received, and the election of  directors, resulted in the returning of  the old board, with one exception.  A resolution was introduced at the  meeting and passed, authorizing the  directors to issue $50,000 in .six per  cent bonds, for the purpose of sinking  to tne 1,000-foot level. The following  are now on the drrectorate of the company: M. F. Madden, Dr. F. Byrnes,  M. S. Madden, O. V. O'Donnell, H.  J. Fitzgerald, F. Rudolph and D. B.  Scully, of Chicago, and W. S. Macy of  Phoenix.  Something over 800 tons of silver-  gold ore was shipped during the fiscal  year from the Providence mine.  Preparing for tbe Tyros.  Mr.  New  The rumor is more or less persistent  about town, says the Greenwood  Times, that one of the large smelting  companies of the Boundary district has  secured from a number of the citizens  of Greenwood, an option on certain  properties of the Diamond Joe group.  The properties, involved adjoin the  Monte group recently bonded by the  Granby Co.  The work of demolition of the old  No. 1 shafthouse at the Granby mines,  has been started. This was over the  No. 1 shaft, the first prospecting shaft  at what was then known as the Old  Ironsides mine. It has been out of  use for a couple of years, and the ramshackle structure being a fire trap, it is  being torn down. In addition, it is  known that it stands on a good body  of copper ore, which some day will be  taken out and shipped, in the distant  future.  The Spokane Diamond Drill Contracting Co., which is now operating  two drills at the War Eagle in this  camp for the Consolidated Co., has  altogether a dozen drills at work in  different parts. Three of these drills  are boring for coal on Vancouver  Island, while others are busy in the  Coeur d'Alene mining district in Idaho.  Mr. Knight, a member of the company  which took over the business of Knight  & Stone, will look after the work being  done in Phoenix hereafter.  Work has been started on the excavations for the new compressor for  the British Columbia Copper Co.'s  Mother Lode mine, which, when installed, will practically double the air  compressing capacity for the mine. It  will be of the very latest Rand duplex-  compound type, smaller than the large  Granby compressors and larger than  the new one installed at the Idaho  mine by the Dominion Copper Co.  With a capacity of some 3,400 feet of  air per minute, it will be operated by a  600-h.p. electric motor.  that he has further advices from  York in this connection:  President Warner Miller sends word  that it is not the intention of the company to give ap operations entirely, but  that the present stoppage is along the  line of curtailing the output of copper  in an overstocked market; and that the  company will proceed with the construction already arranged for, which  includes the erection of another giant  furnace at the company's Boundary  Falls smelting plant, even larger than  the one now in use, which itself is one  of the largest, if not the largest, in any  smelting plant in Canada. Other new  woik for which all preparations have  been made includes the erection of  larger and more commodious office  and warehouse buildings at the com  pany's Phoenix mines.  Officials of the company should  arrive here next week from New York,  according to the announcement, when  those matters will be gone over and  the new work definitely mapped out.  The announcement that the company fully intends t,o proceed with the  new work is a source of satisfaction to  the large number interested in Boundary mining and smelting, even though  the mines are shut down for a time.  The improvements and enlargements at the smelter alone, it is understood, call for an expenditure of  from $50,000 to $100,000.  R. P. Williams, of Rossland, was  here Saturday, being his first trip  since visiting the headquarters of his  companies, at Sherbrooke, Quebec, the  Canadian Rand Drill Co. and the  Jenckes Machine Co. He states that  orders for machinery from the Cobalt  country have almost entirely fallen off  of late.

Died Among Strangers In Strange Land.  Last Monday night a young man  named Vina Carlson died of typhoid  pneumonia at the general hospital, and  was buried yesterday by the city government, Rev. Samuel Lundie attending-  The case is a sad one, being that of  a man among strangers in a strange  land and unable to speak the language  or make his trouble known in time.  He was found last week Thurday in  the Norden hotel by Dr. Brtggs, who  was called by the hotel keeper. Deceased was almost gone when seen  first by the doctor, and had small  chance to live, though removed to the  hospital. He could not tell anything  about himself or his ailment, but the  best possible was done for him till he  passed away. It appears that he had  been employed by M. Mclntyre for a  short time cutting cord wood, but had  no friends, acquaintances or relatives  here, being a Finnlander by nativity.  WAGES SHOULD  BE READJUSTED  W. D.  Matthews  Speaks  in  Vancouver.  Vancouver, Oct. 15.���W. D. Matthews, president of the Consolidated  Mining and Smelting Company of  Canada, traveling on the coast with  President Shaughnessy of the C. P. R.,  this afternoon gave an interview on the  condition of the province. He stated  that British Columbia, more than any  other part of the Dominion, should be  interested in having labor conditions  which would enable capitalists to meet  on equal terms on that line other sections having the same natural resources;  yet the conditions were exactly the  opposite from those that should prevail.  In the face of this fact there has  been a depression in business along  lines in which the province was interested, making matters increasingly  difficult. Silver has recently dropped  7 cents per ounce, lead had gone down  $15 per ton, and copper was 12 cents  below former quotations. The lumber  business was also uncertain. Taking  all these facts into account, there must  shortly be a readjustment of wages to  meet the changed conditions, and the  sooner this necessity was realized and  accepted by all classes the better it  would be for the future ofthe province.  Announcement is now made that  next Saturday a full delegation from  El Mabarraz Temple No. 92, Dramatic  Order of the Knights of Khorassen,  will leave Spokane on a special train  next Saturday for Phoenix, for the purpose of allowing some 75 to 100  novices the privilege of treading the  burning sands that night. They will  bring their famous (not to say notorious) full brass band, and things  will be doing in Phoenix that night.  R. A.' Koontz, the secretary of the  Spokane branch, writes that all arrangements have been completed. Candidates are expected to be present for  the mysterious rites from Knights of  Pythias.lodges in Grand Forks, Midway^ Greenwood, Danville, Republic,  Phoenix and other points, it being the  first time that this order has had an  initiation in the Boundary.  Phoenix Lodge No. 28, K. of P.,  will be ready to give the visitors a  hearty welcome. Only three members  of the D. O. K. K. are now resident  here, namely, J. A. Morrin, Max Ber-  ger and W. D. Bucklew, and they expect to get the mayor to turn over the  keys of the city to the order that night.  Quarantine To Be Raised.  The small pox scare here has been  more of a scare than anything else, but  all precautions were taken to prevent  its spreading. Dr. J. D. MacLean,  the health officer, thinks, if no more  cases break out, the quarantine may  be raised early next week. No more  cases have been reported other than  the four, who were Mrs. Quinlivan,  Mattie and Christina McDonald and  Harry Seeley. Mrs. Quinlivan, who  was taken down first, was discharged  from the special hospital near Mar  shall lake this week, and the others are  all getting along well now, Seeley having  had a very severe case.  The Grand Forks Sim positively  asserts that the C. P. R. intends to  build shops, etc., at that point.  Judge"W. "B; Cochrane, of "Grand  Forks, attended the funeral last week  of his brother-in-law, A. G. Pemberton,  formerly sheriff of Yale, at Kamloops.  The Anaconda News, after, an enforced suspension of a few weeks, on  account of the illness of its editor, proprietor and compositor, has once more  resumed publication.  In Grand Forks the lid has recently  been clamped down tighter than ever  and the strongest kind of padlocks  used, by the police commissioners.  Thirst parlors are still open.  It is now stated that Kettle Valley  trains will begin running regularly on  the North Fork extension on Nov. 1st,  being operated to Lynch creek- the  present terminus, 20 miles from Grand  Forks.  The government sale of crown-  granted mineral claims for non-payment of taxes, will take place at Rossland November 4th, for property in  Grand Forks or Greenwood mining  divisions.  W. G. Gaunce has retired from the  editorial chair of the Greenwood Times.  A. D. Macfarlane, a newspaper man  from Toronto, has arrived .in Greenwood and will in future guide ��� that  paper editorially.  By the time the small pox. story  from Phoenix had reached Grand  Forks, Midway and Greenwood last  week, the four cases had increased all  the way from 18 to 35���which shows  how yarns will grow sometimes.  G. R. Naden, M. P. P., who recently  returned to Greenwood from a five  months' trip to the northern part of  the province, followed the route of the  Grand Trunk Pacific for some 300  miles east from Prince Rupert;.  A team from the Mother Lode mine  has posted $100 in a bank as forfeit  on a $250 bet that the team can best  a similar team from Grand Forks in a  tug of war, the latter winning out  against Phoenix at the Labor Day  celebration at Curlew. The forfeit expires October 31st.  Greenwood's Curling Club met last  week and elected officers for the coming season, as follows: President, K.  C. B. Frith; vice-presieent, E. W.  Bishop; secretary, G. B. Taylor; managing committee, .H. Bunting, W. G.  McMynn, E. G. Warren and E. S.  Birnie. The club has $116 in the  treasury and will put the rink in shape  for the winter,  A meeting of the Cascade Water,  Power & Light Co., Ltd., is called at  Nelson on November 2d, to ratify the  transfer of the assets of the corporation  to the West Kootenay Power & Light  Co., the latter suppyling the large mines  and smelters of the Boundary and  Rossland. The Cascade plant is  located at Cascade on Kettle river,  and is not now in commission, being  held as reserve.  A public meeting was held in Greenwood last week to consider the reason  why the Great Northern has-not connected that town with the line at Midway. Duncan Ross, M.P., was present  and did part of the talking. A committee, consisting of Messrs. Hunter,  Fair and Hallett was appointed to find  out what tonnage could be secured  from the Boundary creek smelters to encourage the road in building,  the general feeling being that the Jim  Hill road had not lived up to its promises when the charter was amended at  Ottawa.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  October 19, '07  A        The following- table gives the ore shipments of Boundary mines for iqoo,  -   1902. for 1903, for 1.004, for 1905, for 1906, anct 1  Butte Hotel Sold.  Last week a deal was put through  by which the well known Butte hotel,  on Dominion avenue, was sold to  Angelo Luciani and George Vichry.  The vendors were James McCreath,  G. W. Rumberger and M. H. Roy.  The new purchasers took the building,  lot and furniture, and state that they  will conduct an up to date place, with  everything that should be found in a  good hotel. Mr. Vichry has been a  resident of Phoenix for three years,  and has moved into the Butte with his  family.  Alderman N. D. Mcintosh was  elected mayor of Grand Forks on  Wednesday, to fill out tlic term of  Jeffrey H-utimar, who recently resigned.

Along about the middle of September the reduction  began, so  that the  full force thereof is not  yet  shown in  full returns  for  that   month, but   October,will exhibit it to a greater extent.  The copper camps  of Montana, Arizona,   Utah   and   Michigan    already  begin to show a reduction over former  monthly  productions.    In   Butte the  reduction was more than one-half to  15,000,000 pounds or less, and it will  be   cut   in  two  again,   according  to  report.   Already about half the 11,000  men   employed  at  Butte; have  been  laid off.    Quite a number  of mines  have been shut down completely.  In Arizona the Calumet & Arizona  Co. reduced its output about 50%, and  the Copper Queen about 25%, the  same thing having  occurred  at  other  I Phelps,   Dodge & Co. properties.  The Green-Cananea mines in Mexico are reducing output by   50%, and  Other COJ^e��J)i:oduc��)ro-in.-M<��xico-h5��.VG-  doneTikewise or are preparing for it.  In Colorado and Utah   the  curtailment was first enforced because of fuel  shortage.      Now   further   curtailment  has been ordered at most of the large  .copper mines, including the Bingham  j Consolidated, Utah Consolidated and  �� Boston Consolidated.  At Mackay, Idaho, the Imperial  Copper Co. recently shut down its  White Knob copper mines and smelter.  In Tennessee and Alaska the retrenchment or waiting policy has been  inaugurated.  f^The copper industry, says the Mining Reporter, is assuredly, greatly demoralized, temporarily; we say tempor-1  ariiy, inasmuch as there is every reason f  to believe that improvement will result  from an extended continuation of the  inaugurated retrenchment policy; how  long this improvement will be delayed  depends entirely upon  the length of  time necessary for exhausting the unsold accumulated stock and upon the  demands of the consumers.

Samuel Potts, of Minneapolis, who  was recently in the Boundary, taking  in some of the important properties,  continued his trip on into the Similkameen and Keremeos country. After  visiting all the big mines in B. C, he  found something near Keremeos that  has a tremendous showing, and located  four claims in that section, calling  them the Potts group. The mountain  is 1,000 feet high, with the copper ledge  traceable on the surface for some 3,000  feet. Mr. Potts will interest Minnesota capital to exploit the group.

Mr. Burrell was commissioned by the provincial government to accompany R  M. Palmer, provincial commissioner of  horticulture, to the old country, with a  British Columbia fruit exhibit, which,  there is little doubt, will open the eyes  of the native Englishmen as to the  possibilities of fruit growing in the  province.  All the shipments for the British  Columbia fruit exhibit to Great Britain  were forwarded to Sicamous from the  various points in this province. At  this place they were assembled, and on  October nth were shipped to England,  under the direction of Mr. Palmer, on  a special car attached to the Imperial  Limited, and were to be sent forward  on the Empress of Britain, sailing on  October 18th, and arriving in Liverpool will be placed in cold storage  there. There will be sufficient fruit to  last for three months, and it is hoped  in this way the fruit will be kept in  good shape during the British shows.  Exhibits have been provided from  the following points: Kamloops, Lyt-  ton, Grand Forks, Okanagan (including Vernon, Summerland, Kelowna),  Salmon Arm, Sr.ence's Bridge, Ch'tlli-  wack, Victoria, Salt Spring Island, Nelson, Kaslo and Duncans. Rossland,  3,000 feet elevation, and Phoenix,  4,600 feet, also contribted to the  exhibit.  According to the present plans, exhibits of fruit will be made at the  following places: Herefordshire, Kent,  York, Leeds, Norwich, Edinburgh,  London and Dublin, in addition to  many country points not yet arranged  for.  At the most important ofthe exhibitions R. M. Palmer will be in charge,  and he will be assisted by Mr. Burrell.  In some instances there are conflicting  dates, and in these cases Mr. Palmer  and Mr. Burrell separate and distinct exhibits will go to different  shows.  It is also proposed to give illustrated  lectures on British Columbia at various  points in Great Britain, with a view to  encouraging immigration to this province. It is thought that in this way a  desirable class of.settl��r= and agricultural and domestic labor may be obtained.  During the winter the provincial  bureau of information will take steps  to become fully posted on the requirements of the different districts, so that  the incoming settlers may be placed  without delay.  333  Greenwood   Liquor   Co.  ..... o __      .���._---���_. __-__-^ .      ���. _  We furnish the trade all over the   Boundary   wiih  the Choicest ,Import" d and Domestic  Wines, Liquors and Cigars  As \v\, ship direct in Carloads, we  can   make   the  prices right, and give prompt shipment.
