On his way hack to Boundary,  and before starting on his New York  tiip this week, he was interviewed at  Nelson, and credited with the following :  "Were copper down to 1 2 cents a  pound as it was a few years ago," said  manager A. B. W. Hodges of the  Granby smelter, to a representative of  The Daily News early this morning on  his arrival from Fernie, "I dare say we  would have to close down the Granby  mines and smelter as tight as a drum;  but with copper at 21 cents a pound,  the highest price it has commanded  lor half a century, we cannot afford  to do any such thing. I blew out two  of our eight furnaces when the strike  started, but within a week, you may  .state, I will have the whole eight running again, even if I have to pay a  higher price for my coke."  "Is there any hope from Fernie, you  ask? No, there is not. It is a good  thing that copper is as high as it is or  eise the whole countryside would have  to shut down just because mine manager and union boss want to have a  real good scrap. I have just been up  to Fernie and have talked with both  sides, with President Sherman and  with Manager Drinnan, and I could get  no satisfaction from either. I am back  a sadder and perhaps wiser man.  What the rights of the case are, I  don't know. Many of the men seem  to have it in for Sherman, or for the  local president, but they all seem to  say that now the fight has started they  have got to see it through. Both sides  thoroughly distrust each other. The  union men say that while certain officials are at the mine there will always  be tumble, and on the ether hand the  officials declare that just as long as the  men are run by the union bosses, there  never can be peace. So everything  looks like a stubborn struggle just now.  But I may be wrong, as I confess I  don't understand the situation."  COKK FROM CHICAOO AND DULUTH.  "Where am I going to get my coke?  Just where I can. During the last  strike we got coke from around Tacoma  and from Vancouver island, but these  sources seem now to be choked with  orders and are running behind them.  I'll have to get my coke from the east,  Duluth or Chicago. Of course I will  have to pay more. Last strike the  coke cost us $8 a ton or thereabouts  and I suppose it will cost us that now.  But with the high price of copper we  can afford it. Even a low grade copper mine is in a different position now  than it used to be. Take a mine running two per cent copper, that is 40  pounds to the ton. Now there is a  deduction of eight pounds on this for  losses in smelling.  "Then there is a constant charge of  four cents a pound for converting, refining, transportation, marketing. This  remains constant because the railways  do not drop their prices when the metals drop in value.   That is to say, that  Manager Biesel, of the Snowshoe,  went over to Rossland on Thursday.  Elmer F. Boyles, of Boyles Bros,  spent a day in town from Spokane  this week.  O. M. Fox, of Nelson, traveling  freight agent for the. C.P.R., was here  Tuesday.  John R. Cassin, a Spokane mining  man, was here last Sunday to inspect  some properties in this district.  J. L. Martin, accompanied by Mrs.  Martin, went to Republic and Spokane  Saturday, to spend a week or two.  Manager A. B. W. Hodges, of the  Granby Consolidated, left this week on  an eastern trip that will take him as far  as New York.  James McGregor, of Nelson, provincial mine inspector for this district,  was here on a periodical trip with Mrs.  McGregor, this week.  Supt. S. C. Holman, of the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Mother Lode mine, with  M. W. Crane, the company's electrician  at the mine, was a visitor here last Sunday.  C. E. Lane, head electrician for the  Granby Consolidated, spent several  days in camp this week, and repaired  one of the 700-h.p. motors in the compressor building. ���  W. C. Hower, electrician for the  Phoenix Electric Lighting Co., went  to Spokane Tuesday, in and around  which place he will spend a month's  well-eared vacation.  W. T. Smith, of Greenwood, who  made a prospecting trip along the line.  oftheGrand Trunk Pacific from Edmonton west this last summer, is now visiting Montreal and other eastern cities.  Rev. James Turner, known as "Father Turner," who was the first missionary in the Klonkike, was here Thursday. He is well known also all through  the Cariboo, and is a man of above 7c  years.  Manager T. R. Drummond, of the  Dominion Copper Co., who has been  down with a slight attack of tyhoid  fever at his residence in Greenwood, is  daily improving, having been out already.  Mrs. A. Birnie, Sr., of Vernon, who  spent several weeks visiting her son,  L. Y. Birnie, of Phoenix, and her  daughter, Mrs. Forbes M. Kerby, of  Grand Forks, the latter being very ill  at one time, returned to Vernon late  last week.  TWO KILLED  AT CARMI MINE  James A. Dale Slays Godereau  and  Celle.  Assassin Taken at Grand Forks  by Officer Dinsrnore.  Boundary Mining Notes  CITY HALL WAS  SET ON FIRE  the mine will get paid 17 cents a pound  on 32 pounds in each ton. Where  large quantities are mined this amounts  to a very handsome thing and consequently we cannot afford to shut down.  1 he transportation charges are'brought  down to a minimum by the converting  process. We are not sending away a  matte (running 40 per cent or more in  waste material) but are sending copper  ijij per cent pure. Whether we will  ever go further and extract the gold  and silver in that copper ourselves, is  a question of costs and markets, and  the problem has not yet been attacked. But we will be running eight furnaces next week whether the strike  continues or not."  Machinery for Moreen.  H. H. Shalleberger, manager of the  Moreen, 111 Deadwood camp, was in  this city last Saturday from Spokane,  and while in the Boundary arranged  for the installation of a 20-h.p. electric hoist for the property, together with  a pump and live-drill air   compressor.  The work thus far done on the Moreen  has encouraged the chief holders  i.if the Alliance Gold and Copper Mining Co., who are operating that property, being Minneapolis people, and  they expect to continue   the   develop-  nent and place the mine in the shipping column.    Samuel   Potts, of Min-  leapolis, one of  those   interested, who  vas a recent visitor here, was wt II  ;>leased with the outlook. While in  the Boundary he was taken over some  >f the large properties, including the  Granby and Mother Lode.  Howard Martin, in Jail, Was  Liberated.  Citizens Indignant  at  Double  Mystery.  Early Thursday morning fire broke  out in the city hall, but was put out,  with only about $300 damage, the  origin being believed to be incendiary,  the entire episode seemingly being  shrowded with mystery.  It seems that the evening before one  Howard Martin, a miner, had been  creating trouble in the downtown hotels, and was taken to the city hall by  Chief of Police Flood, who turned  him over to Officer Docksteader to  watch. Martin left the city ball, however, and the chief, with some trouble,  for Martin is a husky man, put him in  jail a second lime, and this time locked  him in cell No. 1, much against his  protests. Between 3 and 4 a.m. the  city hall was filled with smoke, with N.  Lemieux, J. O. Church and BertS.un-  worth sleeping in the upper story.  When the fire was extinguished, it  was found that the bird had tlown from  cell No. 1. that the bedding had been  set on fire, the flames eating their way  through the wooden partitions and  ceiling to some extent, and considerable damage was done by water. An  examination showed that the window  of the jailor's room had been forced,  some one had evidently secured one  of the duplicate keys of the cell and  let Martin out, and the latter has since  made himself scarce, with no effort  made to capture him. Chief Flood  had one set of keys and the other set  was kept in the city hall in a plact  supposed to be known only to the  Chief, Officer Docksteader, and N.  Lenveux. The keys were found on tlu  jail floor, but the heavy padlock of the  cell was gone.  Much indignation has been expressed  by citizens that a prisoner should be  allowed to get out, to say nothing ol  die fact that the city hall was set on  lire and might have burned down, endangering several lives.  A meeting of the city council was  called for last night, as the Pioneer was  being printed, to consider this and  other matters.  Sunday night one of the worst crimes  in the history of tne Boundary was committed at the Carmi mine, 50 miles  from Midway, up the West Fork of the  Kettle river, when James A. Dale shot  and killed Peter Godereau and Joseph Celle, and wounded David Smith.  The murderer escaped, but was  captured Wednesday by constable I. A.  Dinsuiore, at Grand Forks, who was  on the lookout for the desperado.  The tragedy grew out of a quarrel  over the possession of an axe. Godereau and Celle were to do some  work getting out timbers and claimed  the axe, which Dale said was his, and  there was some scuffling over it at the  C-rmi bunkhouse. Then the three  men who were afterwards shot went to  a nearby cabin, and as Smith struck a  light a shot rang out and be was hit in  the left shoulder. Another shot came  and Godereau was shot in the neck as  he arose. He fell dead. Still a third  shot was fired by the assassin, and  Joseph Celle dropped, a dead man,  with a bullet through his heart. This  was the sickening tale of the man-  killer.  Smith went outside and hid himself,  when Alex Hood, an employee of the  mine, came from the bunkhouse, and  helped Smith to that building, where  the other 1 5 men were. Suddenly a  bullet came through the window of the  bunkhouse, and some one quickly put  out the light. Dale asked for George  Cattnach, superintendent of the mine,  but Cattnach had no intention of making a target cf himself with a madman  about. After some ten or fifteen shots  bad been fired, Dale went to an empty  cabin and shut himself in. A watch  was set on the cabin, but he escaped  before morning, headed for the United  States.  Dale was reported near the Mother  Lode mine on Tuesday, and all the  police of this section were on the  lookout for him. Wednesday morning  he boarded the Great Northern train  at Curlew, Wash., bound for Spokane.  But this train came back into British  Columbia, and when it pulled into  Grand Forks station, Dale was recognized by Constable Dinsrnore and  taken into custody, acknowledging his  identity.  While Dinsrnore was absent about  an hour, the murderer attempted to  commit suicide in his cell by cutting  bis throat, being found on the bed  bleeding from wounds from an old  pocket knife. Dr. Dickson was called,  who patched him up, and he was removed to the Cottage hospital, and it is  not thought his wound is fatal, unless  blood poisoning or pneumonia sets in.  Upon the news of the double killing  reaching Greenwood Monday afternoon, Coroner A. S. Black at once  started for the scene of the murder  two constables also being sent up to  Carmi. Smith is not dangerously  wounded, the builet being extracted  when he was brought to Greenwood  Monday by Alex Hood.  James A. Dale was cook at the  Carmi mine, and has an uncle, James  Dale, who is much respected in the  Boundary. His father was at work on  some claims a few miles from Carmi.  The Dales came from Carmi, Illinois,  some years at;o, the new West Fork  town being named after their eastern  home The murderer was employed  in the mines of Phoenix last summer  and fall, and only lelt here a few weeks  ago to go to the Carmi mine. Code  reau is also well known here, having  been employed by Joe Trombley last  season in getti lg out limbers in the  woods on Fourth of July creek. Celle  was a comparilively new comer in the  Boundary, speaking little English. A  brother of the murderer commited  uicide in Greenwood about a vear ago.  Some diamond drilling is being done  at the Skylark mine by Boyles Bros.  B. C. Copper's second furnace is to  be blown in next week.  J. J. Bassett has started development work on the Jo Jo claim, located  below the Snowshoe.  Two cars ol machinery for the new  air compressor arrived here this week  for the Dominion Copper Co., from  Sherbrooke. Que.  It is understood that the Granby  Consolidated has about concluded negotiations for the acquirement of a  number of additional mining claims in '  this camp.  Owing  to the   blowin  Trail smelter,   most of  the   men   employed   at   the   Snowshoe   mine have  been laid of! for the time being, Manager   Biesel   now   having   but  men employed.  MAPLE LEAF  GOES AT$125,0��0  Bonded  to Dominion   Copper  Co. at That Figure.  G. A.   McLeod   and  W.  Thomas Are Interested.  On his return from an   eastern trip,  a few d-iys ago, W. C. Thomas, super-  out   of the ' m,('ndcnt of the Boundary Falls smcl-  ' ter, anuounced   that   the   Maple Leaf  claim in Franklin camp,   up the North  Fork   of  the   Kettle   river,   has been  . transferred to   the   Dominion   Copper  I Company, Ltd. the excellent figure  of  . .   .   . .���!,,,,   I $125,000.    This property was   owned  A spur is being put in by the kettle ; ,)ythe Kee Brothers, who some months'  Valley lines for the B. C. Copper Co.,  at the nearest point to the Lone Star  and Washington, which is shortly to  begin shipping to the Greenwood  smelter.  Boundary copper shares have been  going up at a lively rate of late. Granby is now around $15 in Boston and  and New York, B. C. Copper is quoted at $14 and $14.25 and Dominion  Copper is ranging between $6.50 and  $8.00.  It is understood that International  Coal will declare its first dividend at  the annual meeting of the company, to  be held some time this month, which  will be good news to the many shareholders of the company in the Boundary and elsewhere.  During the last fiscal year of Granby Consolidated, the copper production was about 1,650,000 pounds of  refined metal per month. It is estimated that the current year will give  it about 25,000,000 pounds, with an  average profit of ten cents per pound,  or $2,500,000 net profit.  It is stated that work for the season  is about over at the McKinley mine,  Franklin camp, about 4,000 feet of  diamond drilling have been done. The  condition of the property is most encouraging. Mining Engineer Stadler,  of Butte, is now completing the maps  and surveys of the development work  done on the group.  Boxlns: Match This Week.  As the Pioneer was being printed  last evening; the 20-round boxing contest between Kid Parker and Barney  Mullin, which had been announced,  was taking place at Miners' Union  opera house. Both men had been  training for some time and were said  to be in good condition for the bout.  Much interest locally was taken in the  event, and not a few wagers made on  the outcome.  I ago made a strike of unusually fine  copper ore. It was shortly afterwards  bonded to Geo. A. McLeod, of Grand  Forks, for a large sum, and a first payment of $3,000 was made on the deal.  Mr. McLeod prosecuted development  work vigorously, and by a series of  open cuts and other development exposed one of the richest surface showings of chalcopyrite ore ever seen in  southern British ^Columbia. Much of  the ore ran from ten to twenty per cent  copper, and, though in the compari-  tively short space of time since work  was begun, it has not been possible to  demonstrate the depth or width of the  body, it is plain that an excellent deposit is present.  Mr. Thomas became interested with  Mr, McLeod, and through his instrumentality the negotiations which have  been pending for some time were  closed in New York and the bond  turned over. The first payment of  $5,000 has been made, and this week  Mr. McLeod met M. M. Johnson, the  well-known mining engineer of the  Dominion Copper Co. and went up to  the Maple Leaf to examine it with a  view to determining plans of development work, which will be pushed on a  vigorous and extensive scale.  The Maple Leaf is situated between  Gloucester and Franklin creeks, and  about a mile and a half above the  i McKinley mine. Mr. McLeod is receiving congratulations on the success  of the negotiations.  Public Library Opened.  The Phoenix public library and free  reading room was opened last Monday,  and has been well patronized each  evening since. In fact, the corner room  in Miners' Union hall was hardly laige  enough to accommodate those who  wish to use the room. Many magazines and papers have been subscribed  lor, and quite a number of bonks ha\e  been contributed. 'Up- committee in  charge will be only too glad to call foi  any books that residents will notii'1  them are ready. A lillle later it i>  hoped to arrange lor a circulating libra  ry for ladi.'s.

The dance given by the Rebekahs  Thursday evening was a most enjoyable  affair, a large number turning out at  the first ball given by that organization.  At the city council meeting this  week, besides paying a few current accounts, the chief thing was to send  Aid. Kane to the meeting of municipalities at Kamloops, paying him $5  per day and expenses, and notifying  the Dominion Copper Co. that if the  Dominion avenue hole was not filled in  15 days the council would take action  for damages.  Jolly Jolly Next Wednesday.  Next week Jolly Jolly, of Joliet, will  appear at Miners' Union opera house,  and give one of his famous entertainments, which are highly spoken of  everywhere he has been. Mr. Jolly  J has the reputation of being a prince in  his line, and a most pleasant evening is  in store for those who are fortunate  enough to be there. A resident of  Phoenix who heard Mr. Jolly recently  tells the Pioneer that he thoroughly  enjoyed hearing Mr. Jolly, and that he  was all that he is represented to be.  Good Game of Eootball.  Thursday the Phoenix football club  went to Grand Forks and played with  the team in the Smelter City, being  the first game of the kind there in  four years. A large audience was present to see the leather kickers, and a  good game  resulted, even   though   the  j Phoenix club was beaten by 3 goals to  o. The visitors say they were treated  royally by the home team.    An extend-  I ed account of the game is crowded  out of this issue.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

The  Dominion House  The .government is straining every  effort to get its business in shape in  order to call Parliament together on  November S. The object of the meeting so early is to get in five weeks of  useful work and to dispose of the tariff  if possible before Christmas. Sir Wilfrid Liurier and some of his, colleagues  are obliged to be in England by the  261I1 of April, to attend the imperial  conference, and therefore it will be  necessary to put forth every effort to  conclude the business of Parliament  before they leave. Under the circumstances the Christmas recess will be  short, certainly not exceeding two  weeks.

When the news   came  two or three  weeks ago, that the coal miners at Fernie were once more   out on   strike, as  in the   past on   similar  occasions, apprehensions were felt in the Boundary  that the coke supply would be shut off  and our mines would be forced to shut  down or run shorthanded as an immediate  result.    Doubtless   the  del vers  for black diamonds around   Ferniehad  this effect in mind when   they decided  to stop work, there being no   question  of hours or wages involved, by the way.  But this time they reckoned without  their host.    The   time was   when   the  Boundary smelters could   not do business   without  the excellent   coke that  came from Fernie;    from   the  indications,   however, that   time is past, and  the closing of Boundary mines cannot  be used longer as   a club in   labor disputes in the Crow's Nest Pass country.  It is due to the   farsightedness and  energy of  Boundary's   smelter managers   that the   smelters of this  district  can   still   be   operated.     Especially is  this the case with Manager Hodges, of  Granby   Consolidated,    who   formerly  received all   his coke  from the Fernie  ovens      Mr. Hodges lost  no time   in  contracting for coke elsewhere, even as  far east   as   Dtiluth,   Milwaukee  and  Chicago,   and   gave  it out   this   week  that the Granby smelter would be kept  in operation even   if the  coke was expensive.    The present 21-cent copper  market is attractive   to copper producers; and   they will   spare   no   effort to  run the smelters  as usual.    The   Dominion   and   B.   C. Conner   smelters,  having contracts   with other   collieries  than the   Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co.,  are not likely  to feel  the   strike at all,  and   so the   smelter   managers of the  Boundary are   lo be   congratulated on  the outcome thus far.  It was feared, when the matter came j  up firs!, :hat there would be a shutdown for our smelters, but this contingency is now far away, ihe prosperity ol the Boundary will continue, its  output will keep on increasing, and  before long will equal the reduction of  5,000 tons"ot ore each 24 hours."  A Voile   Face.  The Cranbrook Herald, which only  a few weeks ago was so positive that  there would be a provincial election  this fall, has executed the usual turnabout face, and in its latest issue informs its readers that it "Don't look  like election." For once we quite  agree with the organizer of the Liberal  party in the interior; it certainly don't  look like election; it looks very much  more like another session, and a continuance of business at the old stand,  much to the chagrin of the Liberal  press, which has run its sensational  story and is stranded with its usual  burst bubble.���Victoria Week.  1 Preaching  St. Andrews' Presbyterian Church,  Service tomorrow at  7:30 p. m.

Gaunce, after spending ten  days in that section, contributes to the  Greenwood Ledge a very interesting  article descriptive of present conditions and future prospects in what is  known as the West Fork (Kettle River) district. Mr. Gaunce's principal  observations are given hereunder:  The West Fork gives evidence of  coming into its own. Those interested in its possessions are once again in  a hopeful mood. Even without a railroad, the West Fork can be developed,  but the possibilities of one add to its  assets. There is now a fairly good all-  year-round road from Westbridge to  Cnrmi. The Kettle Valley Irrigation  Cri., whose scheme is to convert 3,000  acres of arid land into apple orchards,  has its work well in hand and the  movement has stimulated an interest  in a like plan for the upper West Fork,  and if indications may be relied on, a  broad scheme to add to the irrigated  acreage of ihe district will be materialized. Vast stretches ofirrigable lands  lie from China creek, five miles above  Carmi, to Bull creek, 20 miles below  and considerable acreage .has already  been secured with the idea of making  the same productive.  Few regions are so favorably skua-  ted for easy irrigation as the West Foik,  for, in addition to the river itself  which has a fine flow and fall of water,  many mountain streams flow into it  from either side���Heaver, Hull, Carmi, Conklin, Cranberry, China, Curry', Deep, Dominion, East F'ork, Horse  and Wilkinson are some of the many  streams of pure, limpid water that  come from the hills to the valley. 'I he  West Fork is destined to become not  alone a mining, but an agricultuia!  and horticultural district as well. Soil,  climate and water constitute a trinity  of resources that capital cannot overlook, and in this day when irrigation,  both public and private, is becoming  recognized as king, such potentialities  as the West Foik possesses cannot  long remain undeveloped.  MINES, TIMBER AND RAILWAY.  Soon after leaving Rock creek the  talk of the people hinges largely on  three topics, mines, timber and railway, the last first, perhaps, because  the rapid development of many low-  grade claims on the upper river will  be hastened by its building.  The Riverside and Badger claims  between Rock Creek and Westbridge  are owned by Benjamin Perkins. His  years of industrious occupation are  likely to bear full and early fruitage.  He has kept hammering away when  many less tenacious of purpose would  have been discouraged. Beginning  near the river on the east bank, he has  driven a 2000 foot tunnel into the hill  on a ledge which he believed would  materialize into a valuable ore body.  His reward seems certain. At present  he is- working on three feet of steel ga  lena and native silver, he claims, and  his statements are corroborated by visitors to the property.  At Westbridge the trip north is  broken by a comfortable night at  Guise's hotel, whose meals are above  par.  There is quite a camp at Boomerang, but at present little development  is being done. Here, on the opposite  side of the river, are the Monte Cristo  and Monte Carlo groups, both well reputed, while the Iconoclast and Boomerang arc  mentioned as   good things.  At Cranberry creek and on the  mountain to its north are also some  good claims with considerable work  done on them, but the centres of chief  development are Wallace mountain  and Carmi; Wallace mountain east ol  Beaverdell and the Carmi five or six  miles north.  The best known and ihe most highly developed property at Beaverdell is  the Sally group, consisting of 1 2 claims,  the pioperty of the Vancouver and  Boundary Mining Company, and a  tribute to the enterprise ol Robert  Wood. There are ten well-defined  leads on this property all more or less  prospected. Ar present only 15 men  are working on the Sally. Fifteen can*  of ore have been shipped which have  netted the company $45,000. The  veins arc small but very iich, and tin-  values in gold and silver. A good  wagon road of easy grade leads from  Beaverdell to the Sally ore bins, and  from the load the other mines of tin  hill are easily reached.  Standing on the Bell claim on the  north and looking south on the moun  tain, one gels a fairly good idea of the  formation. Along the top of the ridge  runs a dy... of low-grade ore 40 feel  wide, and from the   north   and   south  dyke run the rich leads east and west.  On both slopes of the hill have many  high-grade veins been opened.  In addition to the first-class ore  shipped via wagon road to Midway,  the Sally has yielded a large amount of  second-class 01c running about $30 to  $35. hut whose shipment must await  either a concentrator at Beaverdell or  a railway to Midway. About 800 tons  of this ore are in the bins and about  2,500 in sight, in itself a valuable asset Another car of high-grade ore is  now being gotten out for early shipment.

J. S. McCAGUE, Proprietor. |  The 400 acres of mineral land covered by the Sally group, with its ramifications of high-grade veins running  east and west, would alone contain  promise of a good town at ihe foot of  the hill, and mining engineers of ex-  penence claim that the yield of the  property will reach into the millions.  Oh the wagon road to the Sally one  passes the Homestake and Wellington  claims on which work is now being  done by Hugh Cropley. No. 6 vein of  the Sally would appear to be running  through the Wellington.  Northeast of the Sally is the Bill  claim from which the richest ore on  the hill has been taken. Assay values  from several veins on,the Bell have  run from $300 to $1,000. The claim  is easily reached from the Sally road,  and had it not been for the death ol its  former owner, would in all probability  be a shipping mine today.  South and east of the Sally are the  Duncan and Bounty fraction on which  a syndicate of Greenwood men and  others have been doing a lot of work.  They have both claims under bond at  favorable figures, and with persistent  effort are bound to develop a fine  property. They have six men at work,  have good cabins and a blacksmith  shop, and are now erecting ore bins.  They will ship a car of high-grade  ore as soon as a few sacks needed to  complete the shipment can be hauled  to Midway. They are working at present on the Bounty fraction where the  lead is four feet wide, and the pay-  streak 18 inces, and very rich.  The Bounty fraction is at present  being developed with an open cut, with  pay ore from the grass roots. On the  Duncan a tunnel has been run into the  hill 70 feet, and a winze sunk on the  vein 50 feet. A large amount of open  cut work has been done on both  claims, and apparently $6,000 or $7,-  000 have been expended on the property Charles H. Fair, Thomas Henderson, Duncan Currie and Kenneth  McKenzie are the leading spirits in  this enterprise, and those who know  the men know that energy and judicious work characterize their undertaking. It was of this property that a  mining engineer recently remarked  that if he had it in the Coeur d'Alenes  and had sufficient capital to develop it,  he could make it worth a million in  six months.  Adjoining the Bounty fraction on  the east and across Dry creek is the  Rambler, another property of merit.  A large amount of work has been done  on the claim, and out of the development work have been shipped six cars  of high-grade ore running from $112  net to $179 net. A shaft 85 feet has  been sunk on the property, all in ore.  Recently the shaft was abandoned and  a tunnel begun on the mountain side  near Dry creek. The purpose of the  tunnel is three-fold���to strike the ore  at quarter depth, to drain the property  and to supply air. The tunnel is now  In 80 feet, and it is expected that the  ore will be struckat a depth of 145 leet,  with 20 feet more diiving. If this calculation should prove correct, many-  cars of high-grade ore will be made  available, and the property should be  a great producer the coming winter.  The lead is a good foot in width. One  section of the vein, 10x40 feet, yielded 65 tons, and the vein widens with  depth. About 200 tons of second-  class ore, running 84 ounces in silver,  are stoped out awaiting better means  of transportation. The Rambler ore  is rawhided down Dry creek valley.  The mine is owned by J. W. Nelson,  W. H. Rambo and F. J. Finucaue,  and stands in the front rank among the  properties of this phenomenal hill.  South and east of the Rambler  Thomas Murray's properties are found.  Chief of these are the Gold Drop and  Homestake. On the Gold Drop a 50  foot shaft has been sunk and a fine  lot of ore is seen on the dump. Murray has just completed arrangements  with Costello and Smith of Spokane,  for the further development of his  properties. Murray has done a lot ol  hard work on his claims and deserves  the prospects of his early emoluments.  CONCENTRATOR  NEEDED.  It would seem that a smail concentrating plant at Beaverdell would be a  good investment and a great I'actoi in  the rapid development ol the surrounding country, for often the $35 and  $40 ore could be utilized for pay roll  purposes, and the mines could be developed without the aid of any capital  but their own.  Just north of Beaverdell on Ciuiy  creek, Thomas Curry has a promising  group of claims. The formation differs from that of Wallace mountain,  and the ores appear of a different  character, being presumably low grade.  The ore bodies are laige, and the val  ties gold, silver and copper. Numerous veins run through the pioperty,  some quartz leads running fairly well  in gold, and one iron body, about 30  feet wide, showing good copper values.  A large amount of developmeut work  has been done on the property. Hard  work and plenty of it has not discouraged Curry, and he keeps at it, certain of the outcome.  At Carmi very little work is being  done outside the Carmi property, hut  ihe district is a good one, and many  fine properties, some of them highly  developed, are to be found.  A ten-stamp mill at the Carmi mine  is producing highly satisfactory results.  The ore of the Carmi runs about 530  ���o $35, but the lead is a strong one,  being 6 feet wide at the 180-foot level.  The ore is easily milled, and a large  percentage of the values are saved on  the plates. A fine water power could  be easily substituted for steam, it would  appear, with a marked decrease in reduction costs. With the increased  capacity to the plant which seems inevitable with further mine development,  this substitution will doubtless be  made. A force of 16 men gets out  the ore and operates the mill.  Several other claims of merit are in  ihe vicinity of the Carmi, with ore to  all appearances identical. The Butcher  Boy, May, Hartford, Tamarack, Nos.  2 and 3 fractions, and No. 6, are all  very promising properties, and are  either on the Carmi lead west or adjoining it on the south.  DAI.I'.  THE   IMONEER.  J. C. Dale was instrumental in start  ing both camp and town, having located the Carmi on August 20, 1896,  and the Butcher Boy two days later.  At present he owns the townsite and  2,300 acres of adjoining land, and has  just awakened to the agricultural pos-  sibiliiies of the district.  He also owns the Observatory group  of claims east of the town on Great  Hopes mountain. Here he has run a  90-foot tunnel, and done a vast amount  of open cut work. The ores in this  group run about $70 to the ton. The  country about there seems less  broken than Wallace mountain, although breaks near the surface occur  in the ore bodies.  To the west on the mountain, Thos.  King has done an immense amount ol  work on his claim, the St. Lawrence.  Besides this work he has run a 270  foot tunnel. His industry deseives  and has promise of reward. King  also has some claims about five miles  up the river, on Arlington hill, from  which he gets fine free gold ores.  Just back of Carmi, on the mountain top, are the Nevada and Pasco  claims, out of which comes very fine  looking copper ore. No dissenting  voice is heard to the oft-repeated assertion of the mining men of the camp  that the owners, Scully and English,  have here the making of a great mine.  At China creek, five miles up the  river, are the Butte and Helena, and  another group of three very promising  claims owned by Naden, Johnson and  Simmons of Greenwood. On one ol  the latter is a very fine ledge of magnetic iron, out of which it is believed  the gold came that the placer miners  of China creek secured in '96 to 'yS.  Nuggets ranging as high as 75 cents in  value were then taken from the ground  now covered by the Lucky Boy.  A railroad will quicken this entire  country wonderfully and make many  mines out of present prospects. Bea-  veidell and Carmi are bound to be  good towns in the inevitable development of the next few years. The  weary, waiting days would seem to be  almost past. Mines and mills will revolutionize the country, and it is satisfactory to believe that they who have  done the waiting will still be in it at the  finish. Strangers will not have reaped  all the rewards.

In the past few years the commercial world has had practical demonstration of the good judgment of  business men who buy high-class  goods.  In Saskatoon recently a merchant  sold his stock at too cents on the  dollar, and the chief reason the buyers  ascribed for paying the price was that  the seller had the Slater Shoe Agency.  A franchise for the exclusive handling  of the Slater Shoe is a valuable asset.  The Slater Shoe stock usually brings a  premium, and would have done so in  this case but for the fact that olhei  goods of a shinkable value were in the  stock.

Present   Gilbert  and   Sullivan's  Comic, "The Mikado."  Manager Morrison finally closed a  contract this'week to have the Roscians  Opera Co. appear at- Miners opera  house Saturday, October 27, and "The  Mikado,"Gilbert and Sullivan's famous  opera, will be sung.  The company consists of 26 carefully selected singers, among them  three who appeared here before, Frank  W. Walters, thefamous tenor, and Irene  Palmer, the pretty prima-donna, who  were with the Beggar Prince Opera  Co. Also Miss Winfred Crowley, a  Rossland girl who has made a decided  hit in operatic work during the past  year.  Other principal singers who will be  heard here for the first time are Miss  Lucia Nola the prima-donna. Last  season Miss Nola was with Savage's  Grand Opera Co. in "Parsifal."  The principals are supported by a  chorus of ien pretty, shapely girls and  six men.  A recent criticism of The Mikado  that appeared in the Spokesman-Review,  when the Roscians played at the Spokane Theatre, gives them credit for  having a very c.-sdy wardrobe, and  most beautiful scenic effects. It requires sixty-four trunks to carry their  costumes, and a special car for scenery.  W. Cranston, owner of the Roscians  Opera Co., has sent several good attractions to Phoenix, and was the first  one to enter this territory when he  brought "The Beggar Prince."  NOTICE.
