MINK  Finds if Pare! to Realize Ihe Slie of Ore Bodies  ���Government Will do More for the  Boundary.  hast Wednesday Hon. fames Herbert I'urnci, e\-premicr and at piesent  finance minister of the piovince of  Bntish Columbia, was a visitor to  Phoenix. He was accompanied by A.  C. Flumerfeit, assistant general manager of, the Miner-Graves syndicate.  Mayor Lloyd A. Manly, of Grand  Forks, also came ���up on the same train  , and was one of the distinguished |.iarty.  After being shown all through' the  workings of the Old Ironsides, Victoria  and Knob Hill mines in tbeafternoon,  by J. F. Hemenway, the local representative of tbe syndicate, Mr.-.Turner  accorded a Pioneer man an interview  in the Evening at Mr. Hemeiiway's  residence.  Mr.Turner is an elderly gentleman  of perhaps 60 years of age, with a most  .courtly manner. Probably no man in  the province i.s better acquainted ��� with  the afHiirs of British Columbia, and i.o  one better knows the standing of the  province abroad; Fourteen years ago,  or in 1886, he was elected to the legislature, and in the following year entered the administration of the late  Hon, A. E. B. Davie as minister of  finance- and agriculture. Again'successful in the general elections of 1890  and 1894, in March of 1895, on the  elevation of the late Chief Justice  Davie to the bench, he took the office  of premier and minister of finance and  agriculture. Although . re-elected in  1808, his government .was dimissed by  ex-Lciul.-Gov.' -Mclnnes, who 'was himself dismissed last summer for this and  other acts. When Hon. James Duns-  miiir formed his cabinet last June he xit  onceicalled on Mr. Turner to take the  portfolio, of minister, of finance.  .First Trip to Boundary.  Although the finance minister, visited the Kootenays in j89��,'during the  campaign, this is his first trip into the  ' Boundary country' which is now attracting such wide attention on account of  the large ore shipments from the Phoenix camp mines. . Tuesday Mr. Flumerfeit escorted Mr. Turner through the  reduction works of the Granby Co. at  Grand Forks, and the latter gentleman  was surprised and delighted at the  completeness and extensive scope of  the company's smelter.  To state that the honorable finance  minister was amazed beyond description at the mammoth ��� ore bodies  blocked outin the Old Ironsides and  Knob Hill mines, as he traversed the  canners are out of pocket, the owners of  the factories will have to pay the taxes  on: t,heir property just-: the same. And  so it is everywhere: I'esides, the  mineral tax is not'on the gross output  but on the net returns from the  mines ' '  stated that one object  of the trip was 'to Visit the 'different  government agencies in this section.  He had been at Nelson and Rossland;'  but had not had time to visit the Slocan  on this trip. He was to-drive down, to  Greenwood Thursday taking the Columbia river boat that night, and; thence  back to .Victoria, visiting Vernon lie-  fore returning. He had expected the  Horii James. Dunsnuiir,. premier to  accompany him on this trip, but the  latter had been called to San Francisco  by the death of his brother. Hon.  Richard McBride, minister of mines,  he expected, would shortly visit the  Boundary.  Before leaving the Pioneer man was  informed by Mr.. Turner that from  now on the government intended to  pay'particular attention to the Boundary country, and its needs in the way  of public improvements^ and proposed  to aid-its development' in every reasonable manner.      ������'���'���  BEATS ALL RECORDS  re   Shipments  Last Tuesday.  of  THEY REACHED NEARLY LOW TONS  No Group of Mines In British Columbia Has  Ever Shipped as Many Tons la Twenty  . Four Hours.  IMPROVED BALLOTS.  An Improvement, In the Pri ntinj Will Make  Less Spoiling in Future.  Mr. D. J. McDonald, the returning  officer, states that aii.iiiiprpyeiiient'has  been made in the new ballots which  are lo.be used-at the'lbrthcoming election, says the Kossiand'.'Miner. On  the old ballot, against the name of each  candidate which was printed within a  black block, was left, a circular disc on  which cross had to be placed. If the  cross was not placed within, the disc,  although opposite to the name' of the  candidate, the ballot was'olten thrown  out, although there would seem to be  no reasonable doubt as to the intention  of the voter. v. >  Under the new system the black  blocks, or parallelograms arc still left,  hut they.are placed an inch apart and  between each pair is set the- name of a  candidate, in other words the names of  the candidates are separated by the  blocks referred to. To "signify his intention, all that the voter has to dor,is  to place a cross anywhere opposite to'  the name of his choice.'; Jf is: thought  that'"this;:meth'6'd-w.wiU"^1tfcepr'"?"m^y'''"a"  ballot which',-' under the disc system  would probably have to he rejected.  There is also another point to which  the returning officer railed ; attention  and that i.s the freedom of the voter  to .vole, anywhere- within his riding.  Thus a Rossland voter can vote at  'IVail or a Greenwood voter "could vote  here if he so desired. It is not necessary that the voter should be within  his own city to vote as long as he is  within the electoral district.  Last Tuesday Phoenix set a record  in the way of ore shipments tor a  single day, exceeding that ol any single  camp or gioup of mines in British Columbia. Dining the 24 hours of (hat  day, or between daylight and dark,  nearly 1,000 tons of ore were ship|>ed  from the propwtits ot the Miner-  Graves syndicate in this ramp. The  ore came from the Old Ironsides, Victoria and Knob Hill mines, and was  sent down to the Granby smelter, at  Grand Forks, in 31 cais ot about 30  tons each, in three separate trains.  It i.s not intended at present to ship  as much 01 e as this each dav, but it  shows that the mines ol this ramp can  easily send out 1,000 tons daily when  the syndicate s smeltei at Giand Forks  is able to receive and tieat that  amount.  ���"At present the smelter's capacity on  the self-fiu\ing Phoenix ores, i-, 600  ions, and this is being daily run  through. In'tact one dav 1 ec entl>  624 tons of Phoenix ore were inn  through. 'Ihe regular shipments now  from this camp are kept at 600 tons  per da)'.  In Boundary Mines 1  7'he -Winnipeg sent out a car of ore  to the Trail smelter last Satin da}.  Last month the B C. mine ship  ped over 3,000 tons of oie. About  100 men are now employed at the  property.  Last week the Tew el mine, in Long  Lake camp, near Eholt, sent two cats  ofore to the Silica reduction uoiks,  near Rossland  Three, cars of_qre wer�� shipped by  theAthelstan List week, and so far  one car this week Ahother is expected to go out today.  The Granby smelter up to last week  had.shipped 22 (aiioad-, or about 600  tons of matte to the New York refinery.  The value ot the matte is said to oc  $160 per ton.  The Snowshoe is loading a car with  ore, which it is expected will be sent  out tomorroiv. In the railway tunnel  crosscuttinsj has been slatted over 300  ORE SHIPMENTS TO TRAIL.

Pioneer man was talking to him alter-  wards, he could hardly realize the magnitude there of what he had seen. And  Mr. Turner is a gentleman of wide ..experience'in' general: business, too.  He informed the Pioneer man that  the entire trip into the Boundary* thus  far was a great revelation to him. He  had heard, of course,, of the mines and  large ore bodies, but was impressed in  no small degree by this personal examination of these extensive ore producers.  ., In regard to the metalliferous mines  tax on net output of ore, Mr. Turner  was asked if he thought it was equitable  that the same tax of two,per cent  should be paid by mines producing  $10 ore as by those where ore went $10  or $200 per ton. He answered that  last year the ore tux brought in com-  paritively small returns, and this year  the estimates placed it at $100,000.  but it would amount to a less sum.  "Why, said he," every one objects to  being taxed, and in the case of the tax on  ore it was not easy to distribute it to  suit every one. Down on the Eraser  river, where the salmon.pack has this  year been an absolute failure and the  toria. Among those bidding were  Thomas Corner, Neil Stewart, Smith  Bros., Scott & .McLaren and others.  Early this week Mr. Corner was  notified that his tender, said to be  S2.974, had been accepted by the government, the papers to be executed at  the office of \V. G. McMynn, gold  commissioner at Greenwood. Mr.  Corner, however, has decided that 1k-  does not want the contract, as he had  not allowed for excavating, and he has  so notified Mr. McMynn, who has in  turn notified Mr. Gamble, the government engineer. Mr. Corner's bondsmen are A. Sercu and J. Ii.  Graham.  Just what will__ be done about thp  matter i.s not yet'known, but it is understood that the'bid o( Scott & Mc--  Laren was the next lowest, and if the  government does not require Mr.  Corner to carry out his tender, they  will probably get the job.  Secretary Matheson has heard from  the department of education, acknowl-  eding receipt of advices that a vote of  citizens was in favor of the lirooklvn  avenue site. This will probably therefore be the location of the new public  school building for Phoenix.  feet from the portal.  THE^-��^-  1  ....BUILDING  To be erected on Comer of Old Ironsides Ave. and  First St., opposite the Graves-Williams build-  CONVERT MATTE FROM PHOENIX ORE.  Jay P.'Gravcg Now in Ihe East to Purchase  . "   Machinery.  Evidently the Miner-Graves people  believe in carrying out any project on  which they may- decide, and believe in  carrying it out quickly, says the Grand  Forks Gazette. When the smelter  was first rumored to be established at  Grand Forks there was also a rumor  that a refinery would be-put, in when  the smelter was built. Then the  plant was located here and it was  rumored still more strongly that we.  were to have a refinery.  Finally the plant was in actual operation and Mr, Miner announced  that the refinery would certainly be  built. That was only a month or so  ago and he did not refer to the refinery as possible before iS months at the  earliest. Vet already the first move i.s  being made for the establishment of  the projected refinery plant.-  It i.s reported on good authority  that Mr. Graves on his present trip to  New York will purchase the. machinery  for a convenor plant to be put in  at the local smelter at once, and that  the product of the smelter will be reduced to metallic copper-before being  shipped to the east.  Eastern transhipment will still be  necessary in order to have the gold  and silver values extracted, but by use  of the convenor the bulk of the matte  can be greatly reduced and a considerable saving effected, not- only in  freight charges but in the refinery  charges as well.  This is the first step in the direction of a refinery and would seem to  indicate that the smelter company is  more than satisfied with the operation  of their plant and intend proceeding  with the projected improvements at  once.  If they have found the installation  of a convenor necessary before the  plant has been operating three months,  Smeller Work Being Pushed. ,  It is asseitcd that there is a race  on as to which smelter being built  near Gieenwood will blow in first  The Bntish Columbia Copper company's plant has the start, being well  advanced, and is only awaiting daily  the arin.il of 20 carloads ot machine  ry, including boilers and sampling  machinen, which will be lapidly a-,  sen*.bled on receipt.

Some $3,090 in Eastern Townships Bonk Bills  Was the Haul.  i he post ofiiec at Giand Forks has  been lobbed for the second time 111  about iS months A vear an'd a half  ago a number of icgistered mail sacks  were taken, and although efforts weie  made to locate the tluel, they were  unsuccessful. This time the. burglars  confined themselves to packages of  money in transit from one bank to  another, and from the way the deed  was done, the thieves seemed to have  been perfectly familiar with the premises and with the fact that the government did not provide a suitable safe.  A recent press despatch from Grand  followinir account  of  which occured  last  iwr~~will' contain four stores on First St. and! it.^1��')1>' n.atural'�� [f��� .-������;���- the>"  ing,   Will   ^wiiu<*i4-i   x^iAi will be ready to take the final step and  two on Ironsides Ave., and offices on upper  floor. This building will be ready for occupancy on or about Dec. 1st. I am ready to  Eent or Lease stores or offices in this building.  ������For Terms Apply to   put in a refinery   before  months have rolled bv.  very   many  Forks gives the  the latest robbery  Wednesday week.  It has just leaked out that the post  office here was burglarized last Wednesday night and twj registered packages,  one containing one thousand dollars  from the Bank of Montreal, Greenwood, and the other containing two  thousand dollars from the same bank  were stolen. Both packages were addressed to the Eastern Townships  Hank. The bills were the issue of that  Bank and had been sent to the bank  branch here for redemption. Jas. McKinnon, acting manager of the branch  bank, states that'll will not suffer any  loss, as the remittances were fully insured in the British and Foreign Marine Insurance Company.  The police'are working on the case.  Postofiicc inspector  Dorman of Vancouver has arrived here  and   is   conducting the investigation, though so far  without   success.    The   packages,   it]  seems, were left in a drawer in the post!  ollice over night.    The action   of the |  government in failing to provide a safe, |  is severely criticised.  The mysterious part of-the robbery-  is the fact that the post office was  found locked in the morning. This  has given currency to the belief that  the burglars were well acquainted with  the premises' and the postmaster's  methods. A similar robbery occurred i  a, year and a half ago whenihe robbers  actually carried ofi" several mail bags  and their contents.  Constable Darraugh, of Phoenix,  was called to Grand Forks early this!  week to assist in the case. He states |  that the thieves broke; o|>en a couple |  of boxes and entered in that way. As I  none of the numbers of tbe bills werej  taken, it will be next to impossible to |  trace the burglars in that wav. i  Nominations for the first mayor and  six < otincilmen ol the corporation of  the <*it\ of Phoenix were held from 12  to 2 o'clock this (Friday1 afternoon.  I he icsult was: Mayor, Geo, \V. Rumberger; councilman, Fas. Punch, I).  Mclnnes, J. A. Clark.'U'. il. Bell, J,  A. Motrin, James Marshall, Jos. A.  Graham and Michael McBean. As  there was no opposition to Mr. Rumberger, his nomination is equivalent lo  election. With eight nominations tor  the six council seats, an election will"  take place next Friday November  2nd.  Promptly at the hour designated by  the lieutenant-governor's ptoc tarnation,  12 o'clock, Robert Bud Kerr, the returning officer v\.is at Miners' Union  hall, to receive nominations At first,  thete were but lew present, but belore  2 o'clock came, the hour of closing,  a large number of citi-'ens had arrived  to witness the proceedings.  The returning officer read the notice  of election and also read the letters  patent incorpotating t'je citv, which he  iccetved from the government. The  first nomination was that ofW.il.  Bell, lor councilman, which had been  received the day belore. Then followed the othei seven nominations  given here, together with that 01 Mr.  Rumberger as mayor  During the week there has been  some speculation among those qualified to serve in the fiiot council, as  well as among others,as to who would  be selected tor this honor. It seemed  to be the general wish that strong  men should be selected for this work,  and from the'list here presented a  coiincrl satisfactory to the * gi eater  number of voteis will be chosen next  Friday.  Tbe Robson Bridge.  A contract for the C P. R bridge  across the Columbia from Spio.it'->  Landing to Casilegar, has been let to  the Dominion Bridge companv. The  budge will be 550 leet in length and  will cioss the Columbia about a mile  below West Robson Direct passage  ot freight and passenger trains to and  from the Boundary country, will then bc-  possible without transfer.  A.L. Watson, the well known miner,  who lost his eyesight by a premature  blast in the R C. mine near Eholt  about a year ago, has completed his  three-story hotel on the Nickel Plate  flat. He announces that it will be  open to tbe public on Wednesday  next, and  that,  it  will   be run   in  a  New Bunk House at B. C.  A contract for a   new   bunk  for the 1). C.   Mine has   been  Express Oifice in Phoenix.  Last Saturday the office supplies for  the Phoenix branch of the   Dominion-  Express Co. arrived at the   C.   P.   R..,  station, and Agent Dey is now receiving  Phoenix express matter by   rail  daily.  The  safe arrived some weeks  since.  All express matter is brought; up froni  Eholt on the  afternoon  ore train,   in  charge of the conductor.    As this train  leaves before the  main line  passenger  train reaches Eholt, the express matter,  necessarily reaches Phoenix a day later.  Even so, however,   the. express  office  here will be a convenience, as money*  orders can also be  obtained,   payable  at par almost anywhere in the  world.  Were Married at Republic.  I^ist Saturday, iSth,   the Republic  News contained the following:  "Married, Oct. 18, Wiltium It. Docksteader of  Colfax and VcH-a Summers, Seattle."  Both of the high contracting parties  have been residents of Phoenix for  some time and are well known 'here,.  Mrs.-Docksteader being the daughter  of Mr. Summers, the hotel man. Mr.  Docksteader is one of the firm of Docksteader Bros. The bridal couple returned to Phoenix on Saturday and  Mr. Docksteader expects shortly to  erect a comfortable home. The Pioneer  joins the friends of the happy couple  in wishing them many years of happiness together.  Story With a Maral.  Addressing a crowd of interested  cattlemen in .Nebraska recently; Governor Roosevelt told the following little story with a moral, says an exchange. It i.s adjustable, it so happens, to Canadian conditions at the  present time, and may be read and  taken to themselves by the electors of  this great  Dominion:  "Once when I was in Texas, in :i  little cow town called Neueces, there  was a large cow puncher leaning  against a wall and a little dap'ier fellow standing near with a little nickel  plated revolver in his hand.

Dominion politics are livening up a  trifle, and it is nearly time. The liberals, who are now in power at Ottawa,  haye'been making preparations for trie  elections lor some time, and ihe conservatives, or liberal-conservatives  as  I jst Tuesday the Miner-Graves syndicate, operating in Phoenix camp,  ship-ied nearly 1,000 tons of ore to the  smelter. There were 31 cars, of about  30 tons each, sent out that day. So lar  as known, this establishes a record for  British Columbia mining camps for  one day's output of ore.  A short time since, Mr.  S.   H.  C.  Miner, president of the companies.-tc^  prctgsuai ii) ihi' liTiner-uraves  syndicate, stated that he expected the daily  shipments from the syndicate's  mines  in Phoenix tamp to reach the   1,000  ton figure l>efore a very long time had  passed.   The fact that this'was done  last Tuesday,shows'that is can be done  right along when the reduction  works  are prepaied to receive and handle this  large amount of ore each   24   hours.  At present the capacity of the Granby  smelter is but 600 tons per day, but as  soon as possible other furnaces are to  be added and the capacity doubled and  j trebled.  The mining world is only just beginning to realize what the ownets of  these now famous properties in Phoenix have all along known���that we  have here some ol the greatest, if not  the greatest, mines on the American  continent. Phoenix certainly has a  most promising future, and he who  could foretell its greatness, say in five,  ten or twenty years, would indeed be a  prophet.  on the country and a corresponding  saving to the liberal coffers���Kamloops  Standard  For the ninth time since the confederation ot the provinces, the electors  of Canada are called upon to choose  representatives for their House ol Commons.

Ores  from these mines make   with" a first  smelting a thirty-five per cent- matte,  which is as good a result as could , be  possibly desired.   On the other hand,  City of Paris ore, it is found,   requires  a preJiniiuary roasting to get rid of the  sulphur contents.    Coke is laid down  at Grand Forks from Fernie at a cost  of eight dollars a ton.   This in itself  is a wonderfully cheaprate when it is  reniembered that little more than  two  years ago the Trail smelter was,paying  (juite dpuble this amount for  coke,  which was ac that time brought all the  way from Wales; but apart Irom that,  the Granby smelter only requires to  use one ton of coke to eleven   tons of  ore, so it will be seen the fuel costs are  comparatively light.v  Apropos, Mr. Paul Johnson in the  course of an interview with the representative of the Greenwood Times,  jiointingout the peculiar advantages  mine-owners'in the Boundary Creek  district enjoyed from the fact that ores  are self-fluxing���i, e., ores with which  lime and iron are freely assorted���remarked:  "Hut few people outside of those actively engaged in the smelting industry  realize this great ad vantage. One furnace can treat at least 50 percent more  sell-fluxing ore than those requiring  fluxes, and consequently 50 per cent,  less fuel is required. As fuel entails  at least. 60 per cent, of, the cost of  smelting, the advantage can be readily  seen. This is" a distinct > advantage  that Boundary possesses over Rossland  as a mining district.'' v  Mr. Johnson, by the way, has pretty  well demonstrated that he' is not  knowingly, at any rate in this instance,  "talking through his hat," by offering  Winnipeg and otherjnines, in the dis-  a freight and treatment/ rate of  4 per ton. This is"the lowest smelt-,  ng rateoflercd yet in British Columbia,  iand under such circumstances it should  be easily possible to mine even ore as  ow grade as eight dollars,; profitably.!  lAt present the Winnipeg is paying  $5.50 |>er ton for the treatment of its  ores at (Jrand Forks. Perhaps the  fact that-the Boundary ores are generally low grade, is really a blessing in  disguise for the district. v  It Greenwood and Grand Forks become great smelting as well as mining  centres it will certainly be due to  this  circumstance alone.    The marvellous  extent of mineraj bearing area in which  the low-grade mines'arc-found promise  an unlimited supply of ore,  and  because this ore must be treated on  the  spot and   even   then the margin of  nrofit he so close,  that metallurgists  will necessarily be stimulated   to  put  forward every effort to reduce costs to  the minimum.   And.in a ratio to  the  reduction of local treatment charges so  mil be^tlie gi-myth of both industries-  mining and smelting.,   Soon after the  New Year three smelters  will  be in  operation in the'district, having together  a capacity for treating 1,200 tons daily.  Mr. Johnson has fixed December i.st  as the date for the blowing in of the  Mother Lode smelter, and the Pyritic  smelter at Boundary Falls  should  be  completed about a month latter.'  As to the right of some of the Bounty Creek mines to consideration the  flowing information with  respect to  He Mother l���ode is worth noting.    An  ���praise is being run  to connect  the1  1300-foot with the 200-foot level.

In 1896, the following states  were carried by Mr. Bryan, the res'-ec- J  tive vote of each also being shown:  Electoral  State Vote.  Alabama ,... , ���    11  Arkauaax ���.     8  California..     3  Colorado......      4  Florida.. ,     4  Georgia.....,:.....,:    13  Idaho- ,.      3  Kansas    10  Kentucky...: .,      t  Louisiana.........

'..    12  Washington....      4  Wyoming     3  AH of the remainder, amounting to  271 votes, went to McKinley.  It is conceded that Bryan will carry  all the states that he carried in 1896  except Washington, Wyoming, South  Dokoto and Kansas and the odd votes  in California and Kentucky. This  j;ives him 153 sure votes. Of the  doubtful states he must carry in order  to go in, all that he carried before and  in addition.

The following facts about Phoenia tell the story of what capital has already accomplished in the chief  mining camp of the Boundary. There are yet many promising prospects well worthy of business like  exploitation.  Phoenix itself arid the camps to which it is the nearest banking and business  point, are now shipping 4,500 tons of gold-copper ore per week, or 225,000 tons  per year.  The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides, situated in the very heart of the town, are  alone shipping 600 tons daily, or 4,200 tons per week.  The B. C. mine is shipping 150 tons dail}*, or over 1,000 tons weekly.  Other properties, such as the Golden Crown, Winnipeg, Athelstan, etc., are  shipping not less than 50 tons per day, or 350 tons per week.  The ore shipments from Phoenix alone far exceed the combined output of all  other mining camps of British Columbia, outside of Rossland.  Yet Phoenix is outy in its earliest infancy.  For further information, address,  A. HENDERSON,  The Watchmaker and  Jeweler, is doing the finest quality of work in  the Boundary country.
