The Canadian Mining Review, published at Ottawa, is slating the (Jiaiiliy  Mining Company, It says that the  Granby .company is evercapitali/.cd;  that its ore does not pay to work; in  fact, that the .company i.s a gigantic  flotation to rol> the public. The  Review article has been reprinted in  the Coast newspapers, and the follow,  ing 'complete rcfuuiion of the inis  leading and err6reotis statements made  is. from the pen ol'��� K. Jacobs, the  Boundary correspondent :  As one whojie particular business  it ivin iny capacity of special correspondent in.ihe'Boundary distiict for  several newspapers and , mining  journals, to keep well: informed re.  spectiug���������,its mining and smelting  industries, Imay be permitted to make  ."ome comment on an article that  recently appeared in the Canadian  Miniiig Review regarding the opera  lions of the' Granby Consolidated  Mining, Smelting & Power Company,  Limited, the more so since on the 3rd  instant S. II. C. Miner, president of  the Granby company, in granting my  request for a talk with him rts|K.-cting  the article, told me that the directors  of the company were tieating it with  the indifference they considered, from  its nature, it deserved. Iii taking, up  this matter I am more concerned about  the effect this" criticism, which 1 think  I shall show is not warranted by tin-  facts of the case, <��� may have upon .'the  mining industry of the district', than  upon the Granby company,.'which"'is  quite able to take its own part whenever* its management shall thi 11 kit  'fl^mry^.tpH.d<��-:��so��:./i,fci;hft^  company's: mining and ���'"'smelting -".industries being by far the largest in the  'district, it seems inadvisable thai  judgment shall be permiited 0t<> go  against it, arid through it against the  district; by default.

I have  selected the following allegations, upon  which I comment as under:  . (1) ."Considerable interest is aroused.-in- British. .Columbia by the an-  noiuicemeiU that the Granby smeller  people contemplate'-an increase in  their capital, laising it from fifteen  million to twenty million dollars and  those who are best able to judge considerMe proposal a farcical one in  view   of vthe   past    history    of   the  In view, the latter,cqufd not be induced  lo give ;is mticlv as, tvvo million" tlollars  forthe properly.''. -.'-&��� '*--';:-  lit this 1 reply thai I have definite  assurance that tlie: cash expended to  date on, the company's properties is  about $1,506,000. ;'���"'i.Th'is 'does not,  ihpugh represent their value, for a  considerable, poition^of the original  consideration for the"-mineral,, claims  was in stock, whilst a" large and valu-  able.tract of land (situate near Grand  Forks) was lec^-ived .-$ a smelter bonus  >r subsidy without nnV cash therefore;  further, Mint the'.'tbwi[;'of, Phoenix is  pat tly on thecompaiiykmineral claims,  adding very hugely; to their surface  value. As to the iilieiged attempts to  sell, Mr, Miner assurtd me thai the  directors had not triei) tofjell the property; on the contrary they had  declined offers, which'they had fully  .satisfied themselves 'were bona fideand  backed by the necessary capital, for  the purJ|,ase of the properly at,-much'  higher''figures thahjiihe $2,000,000  mentioned. . .   i .  No Reaionable Information Kcnistd.  (4) "No authoritative statement  has yet been given la's \jto "the average  'value per ton of ore ���treated although  the smelter has been,'in operation  since last year. ...Repeated applications  liave been made to tlie company l>y  shareholders for M.iis', information but  it has been refused |fpr motives ol'  policy." J   y  Mr.Miner stated "to,Vme that no  shareholder bad beerffijefused iiifdrma-  lion that he was ren-s'ouatily entitled to,  Statements of receipts'/and expeiidi-  111 res had been submitted to general  meetings.... or' -shareholders whenever  required by the provisions governing  the conduct of the financial affairs of  the several companies, now . consolidated. . When presiding over general  meetings he had on several occasions  slated to shareholders present that the  ore was yielding a profit,, but just what  that profit was the directors were not  yet prepared to make public; In  adopting this attitude; at, the present  stage, of their undertaking the directors  considered they, were1 conserving the  best interests of the. cQiiij'any and were  only doing the same as/other manufacturing , ctmcensv. which, do not  divulge details of the cost of production.  Are Making a Profit.  (.5):   "If, as is currently believed by  .those i 11:the,best;po^i^tpJudge,the,  company.  As to the "considerable interest" 1  have only to remark I had not heard  any mention at all made of this matter  in the Boundary district prior to the  publication of the Review's criticism,  nor had I seen any reference made to  it in any. of the provincial newspapers  that came under my notice. Mr.  Miner's reply to my enquiry as to the  truth or untruth of the .statement  alleging a proposed increase in capital  was:  "We never even thought of raising  the capital of the company above its  present amount of $15,000,000. Why  should we when we' have one-foqrth ol  the capital stock in the treasury  available for the advancement of the  company's interests should occasion  require ?"  (2) "It is an undoubted fact that  the present Capitalization of $15,000,-  000 is'enormously in excess of the  value of the properly."  In this connection I remark that  the shareholders of the four companies  that combined do not seem to have  thought' so, since they ratified the  scheme'Hjf consolidation. I am informed they received, prq ra.ii*, three-  fognlis of the new stqck a.i\d that none  Was offered for sale to the pqblic.  ffavt Spent SI,i(MI,QQ0.  (3) "It is a well known fact that  the total expenditure in cash both for  purchase and development of all the  properties of the Granby smelter group,  including the smelter'itself, does not  exceed one million dollars and when  in the early months of this year the  representatives of this company, }. P.  Graves and A. L. White, were in New  York negotiating for the sale of the  property, or at any rate exchanging  pour parlers with the Amalgamated,  Conner Company having  th.a,t object  average gross value o"f tlie ore'treated  does not exceed, five dollars; it is  doubtlul if opeiations. are not being  carried on at a positive loss."  Perhaps the most effective reply to  this is contained in ihe following  c'xi erj.-t' liotn a circular dated August  -12, sen! tu sliaieliuldeis with their  stock in the new 1 uiiMilidated -com  pany : "Instead .of striving 'to pay  dividends belore your property was  nilly developed, it is has been the  desire t f your directors, and to this  end every effoit has be 11 made, to  equip and put the properties and plant  in a thorough condition to; earn and  ���pay dividends regularly. We have  been spending nearly $200,000 in new  equipment during ihe present summer,  which will more than double our  present output and piofits. All ol  this sum we are. taking out of the  ground, not liavingUadvanced one  dollar for the past yeoNodo this work.  It would seem that "those in the best  position to judge" state most plainly  that operations are .���returning profits,  thus directly contradicting the suggestion that they "are being carried on  al a positive loss."    ,  (6) It is * * * culpable on the  part'of the directors of the Granby  company to wiihold. important information without which it is impossible  to estimate the value of the stock they  are apparently bent on increasing and  which in any case they are offering the  public as an attractive investment."  Mr.'Miner's statements to me applicable to these strictures may be sum  med up.dius: (a) Shareholders have  been given all the i 11 foi million they  are entitled to. (b) The directors  have not even thought of' increasing  the stock, (c) They have not offered  any stock to the public.  Hostile to BrltUb Columbia.  I desire to add that not only in the  Boundary district, but when at Nelson  and Rossland lately, the simple men  tion that the .Canadian Mining  Review had attacked ihe Granby  company promptly elicited replies,  remarkable in their unanimity, in effect  tha' that journal is notorious for its  general hostility towards British  Columbia mining enterprises.  At the risk of making an unieason-  able demand on your space I ask your  permission to here briefly summarize  ihe history and work of the Granby  Consolidated .. Mining, Smelting &  Power Company, Limited, having a  capital of $15,000^00 in 1,500,000  $10 shares. The consolidation embraced four Incorporated companies,  viz., the Old Ironsides Mining Company, capital $1,000,000; the Knob  Hill Gold Mining Company, Limited,  capital'$1,500,000; the Granby Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company,  Limited, capital $900,000, and the  Grey Eagle Gold Mining Company,  Limited, capital $1,500,000.  The mineral claims owned by these  companies are situate at Phoenjx and  all adjoin. .They are the Old IronsjdeS)  ��nob'Hi'll, Victoria, Fourth of July;  Phoenix, Aetna, G-cy' Eagle,   Banner,  Tip-Top and Triangle; these constitute,  so far as known, the biggest copper  mining pro|iOsition in the Boundary,  probably in the .province. For some  time .'prior to the consolidation they  were jointly worked under the one  general management. ^The Old lion-  sides and Knob Hill companies did a  large amount of 'development .in iheii  respective mines, and have been ai  work with scarcely ���aiiy intermission  for about five years. The first Giaubj  company'Which' was of tin re recent  organization, worked the Victoria and  built and operated the smelter al  Grand,Corks,' these reduction works  being thoroughly modern and most  effective and successful in their results.  Preliminaries' having been arranged  during the latter half of 1900, the  consolidation was consummated early  in the current year, since when there  has been a gradual enlargement of  operations.  Development to Dale.  In the development of the Old Ironsides, Knob Mill, Victoria  and  Grey  mines 2256 lineal feet of sinking  and  raiding and 10,000 feet of crosscutting  and drifting���together nearly two and  a half miles in.length of workings have  been done. There has also been about  half as much work again done'in-very  large raises and drifts which, although  in new country  has  been  counted as  sloping,   not as development.    The  deepest shaft is down 400 feet and the  diamond drill has proved   the occurrence of ore down to a depth of, 800  feet,     Large   surface quarries   have  been opened iii ore which is known  to extend about 3000 feet on the company's ground  and to have a width of  300 to.40b feet.     As now opened the  deepest face\of ore in the quarries is  about 60 feet,, but a cut is now,being  run into the hill that will  eventually  give an open face of more than  200  feet in maximum depth. ���The railway  cars will shortly be run intp the quarries and there be filled  with  ore, by  means of a steam shovel, thus econo-.  mizing in the cost of loading.   .  Shipped 133,9% Ton.  Shipments of ore: were. commenced  in July, 1900,  and during  that year.  64,533 tons were sent to the smelter;  ���The output-for nine- months of 1901  ending September 30th, was   168,620  tons, making an aggregate  tonnage to  the latter oate of 233,155 -'tpiKs.v i At  the.

With   the  tonnage increased 'to 1200 tons a day,  as will shortly be done,  these; (nines  will yield at a.similar valuation $6,000  [ier diem; but this is by no means anywhere near their limit of daily production; i^which i.s planned to  next year  further increase to about   2000 toils a'  day) so easily  accessible   are" their  enormous  ore  bodies.     The  mines'  were well equipped with improved ma-  chineryand plant, and have, too, commodious and substantially built accommodations for about   500   men,   there  being at present rather more than 300  men on tbe pay-roll  The smelter is at present running  two blast furnaces, these together  treating nearly 670 tons of ore per  day. Two .moie furnaces are oveidue  to arrive at the works, and these should  be in operation before the end of the  year. This addition will increase  treatment facilities to about 1300 tons  a. day. It has been decided to increase the number of furnaces to six  early in the new year so as to enlarge  the capacity of the works to about  2000 tons of ore daily. Two copper  converters will also be installed here  shortly and these with other betterments also being made will bring the  equipment up to the most complete  and important copper producing plant  in Canada,  Adverse criticism regarding the big  capitalization of the Grariby. company  may or may not be warranted, but  surely the proper time for this.was  when last year an authoritative public  announcement was made of an intention to increase to $15,000,000 and  not when rumor usually most carefully  ignored by reliable journals, concocts  a siory entirely at variance with facts.  The, Canadian Mining Review Jias  now added to its reputation in the Interior mining districts of the province  of being a "knocker," so far as mining  in British Columbia is concerned, evidence that either ignorance or prejudice so influenced it that it did not  take the most ordinary precautions to  verify information before making  sweeping reflections upon the status  and management of an extensive and  thoroughly bona fide mining and  smelting enterprise,  WAS  n i rem  rAD3EU  Big Force Now on the New  Water System.

Last Monday there was considerable  interest in the voting that then took  place by the ratepayers of the city,  who were expressing their opinion of  the water and light fianchises amendment by-law, which had been recommended hy''the city council. The polls  were open from 8 to 4 at the city  office, the city clerk being the returning officer. When the ballots were  cpuntecl, after the polls,were closed, it  was found that the bylaw had been  carried by the overwhelming -majority  of 27 to 5, the ratepayers thereby expressing their approval of the. by-law,  their confidence in the city council  and in the promoters of the new.  water and light system.. ������"''.*''!'!���;  Saturday Evening'* Public Meellnf.  Last Saturday evening a public  meeting was called by the city council  at the;McMillan block, to discuss Ithe  by-law that was to be voted on by the  ratepayers Monday. There was a good  attendance, the mayor . presidt g.  Among the speakers were the mayor,  T. J. Hardy, J. E. Mills,, R, li. Kerr  and R. A. Jones."  Mayor Rumberger explained his  position in the matter in. a few well  chosen words, making an excellent  speech. He though t_the new arrangement was a much belter one for ; the  city, for should the city wish to secure  control of the two systems at the  stipulated time, the corporation could  take over botlrwater and light plants  at an appraised valuation, whereas by  the old arrangement,,if the promoters  gave up the water system after they  couidJnotfn^  retai'ri*Hie lighting system*'"the7"most  valuable asset of the two,. He .also"  gave'history of'the entire case.  IR. A.:;Jones, the. engineer .of;the.  promoters, in charge of contraction,  gave some figures, in, regard to > the  system. He said also that in regard  to the use of wooden, pi'ie for the water  system, it had been his experience that,  taking everything- into consideration,  the pipe he was now. putting in here  was fully the equal, of iron pipe, if it  was kept saturated all the lime. In  fact he had known of iron pipe that  had to be taken up in five years because of corrosion.  In this connection, Mr. Justice  Irving, who visited Phoenix this week,  staled that the.- city of Victoria had  recently taken up some wooden  that had been, in use for 20 years,  was still in good condition.  EnjlBeer Jonei Crowding the Work ai Past  as Possible.  Rolla A. Jones, engineer in.chame  of the co. sti uction ol the water system  for the city, has heen putting men at  work this week as fast as they could be  secured and used, at present there being three gangs employed. One of  these is at work on Brooklyn avenue,  where there is considerable rock work  to be dorie; Another is puttingin the  line to connect with the Banner s|fring,  about' 2,6oo: feet" long, the connection  to be made near the tennis court, just  above Old Ironsides avenue. A third  force has been started; at work at Marshall lake on that'line. ..'"?,?������:���  Next week the contract will be let  for the erection of the pump house at/  Marshall lake. "A Cameron pump  will be installed for the time'being,;  capable of forcing 250,000 gallons of  water daily, but when the Cascade  power line is. completed and ready to  do business, it is expected to do the  pumping .with electric power. The  power is promised early in the new  year.   "..->���      f;....

'.  pipe  and  MINES AND MINING,  Shipment's from the Winnipeg are  now going to   the Trail smelter.  For the last week the Granby smelter  has treated 4,883 tons of ore, making a  total of 243,075 tons to date.  Supt. DuiH-ansoi: expects to get the  Go'dim Crown u.nwatered this week  sufficiently to permit the resumption of  active work in the mine. The familiar  sound of the siren whistle was heard  in Phoesix last Sunday afternoon for the  first time in about a year.  It is expected that the last ot the new  machinery for the en'arjre'nent of the  Granby sme'terv/iH he shipped from the  east bv the miiu'U* of November. From  tins it i? anticipated that the work of  donlilins; the capacity of the smelter to  1,300 tone daily will be pretty well completed hy the 1st of Jan��ary, and  possibly before.  Musical Treat Last Tuesday.  Miss Queenie McCoy of Vernon^  and Miss Jean Robinson of Rossland,  appeared in the new Hardy-McKenzie  hair Tuesday evening under the  auspices of the C. E. of St. Andrew's  church. The were greeted by a fine  and appreciative audience, and the  programme was a genuine treat for all  'overs of music..'Miss Robinson's  work on the piano was rendered with  ease and excellent taste, while the  popular Scotch airs Miss McCoy  enlisted the warm sympathy of her  heaiers. "Annie Laurie" at>d "Will  Ye No Come Hack Again", with others  in the same vein, were sung with expression and sympathy.  It is safe to say that both these  promising young artists have gained  many admirers in Phoenix, and we  may say further that a musical entertainment of this high class will always  be welcomed to our young city.  It. is said Mint the No. 7 mine will  shortly begin the work of dinkinn a  shaft on that property posaibly 200 feet  further. The mine keeps up the ship-  men fs of 35 to 45 tons per week to the  Greenwood smelter.  City Council Doings.  At Wednesday's meeting of the City  council there were present Mayor  Rumberger and Aldermen-.-Punchy  Marshall,, Roy,; Clark; Morrin. and  Mcinriis. The finance committee reported favorably on a number of small  bills, amounting to $64.80, which were  ordered paid. ' _ , '-'���'<������'  ', Municipal Works and Supplies By-  Law No. 1.8 was passed.the,last time,  but was returned by the mayor for-  further. consideration. .

The shaft on the railway   ledge at  the Winnipeg is now down   nearly '70  feet  on   the   ore   body,   which    has  steadily been   improving.    This shaft  has mdre than paid for itself since being started, and die ledge is now being  explored further on the surface before  snow falls, to determine its  direction  and extent.    It is close to.the line  of  the Golden Crown.  W        PHOENIX BRANCH ORE SHIPMENTS.

As is well known, the Boundary has  been striving to secure a resident  county court judge for a long time,  and when the appointment of Andiew  Leamy, of Greenwood, was reported  from Ottawa, it was believed that the  prayeis had been answered through  the meditation of our representative at  Ottawa, William R. Galliher. Then  it was asceitained that the appointment had been gazetted for Kootenay,  and not for Yale, but this was quickly  followed by the announcement that  this was an error which would probably be corrected at as early a date as  possible,by the Dominion government  Now comes the statement that the  gazetting of Judge Leamy for Kootenay was no mistake, but was done intentionally, and that he has been instructed to take up his official residence in, .Rossland or Nelson, the  , chief cities of the Kootenays. >.  'Thus it appears that Mr. Galliher,  knowing the great need of a county  court judge in this part of Vale, instead of getting one. appointed for this  section, had it made for Kootenay, or  consented thereto. Doubtless Kootenay needs another judge, but as  Boundary has none, this section  should have .been consideied. It is  needless to remark, in this connection,  that Mr. Galliher has made no friends  in Yale by this action, and it will take  a good deal of explaining by the lib  erals here to satisfy the people that he  ' did the best he t ould for Yale, a part  of his constituency���for the time be  ing at least.  Montreal thought it would be a good  lime to make an attack on (he shaies  of the Miner-Uraves sjiidicate. The)  made the attack, and sold short. The)  could not deliver the goods, and as a  result the president of the exchange,  as well as others, weie ruined. It was  a let:on that will not soon be forgotten by those who took |aart in it. The  shares weie held by those who thought  they were too good to let go.  It is of course possible that there  aie things in the management of the  Gianby Co. that could be impioved  on, but it has yet to be demonstiated  that the editor of the Canadian Mining Review is a man of such exper  iencc in the development of huge mining ptopositions that he is in a positions to point them out.  In this connection it may be well to  state here that the editor of the Canadian Mining Review seems to be gen-  eially hostile to lliitish Columbia, as  he has the reputation ol never losing a  chance to "knock" the mines ol this  province. This being notoriously the  case, the value'of the opinion iclened  to can be propeily placed.

UNWARRANTED CRITICISM.  v<    I  - -Inarecent article published in the  Canadian Mining Review, of Ottawa,  ihe editor of that monthly takes occasion to criticise the Granby Co. from  several points of view. Among other  things the article in question asserts  that it is "<loubtful if operations are  not being carried on at a positive loss,"  and states that this "is the opinion of  those in the best' position to judge."  Inasmuch as improvements this year,  amounting to over $200,000, have all  been paid out of the profits of the concern, this statement, "like the others,  falls to the ground.  , Of course *the editor is entitled to  his opinion, but  "those in the best  . position to judge" of these and other  matters connected with the management of the property are those most  interested in it, and as they seem well  satisfied with the results thus far, the  astute editor referred to should be sat-  irfied also. Tli,e article also asserts  that the Granby pebple made an attempt to sell out to the great copper  trust of America, and is captious in its  criticism all along the line.  . It is a'well known'fact that there  are persons in the east that are jealous of the success that has attended  the efforts of the Granby Co. It is  also a fact that of all the companies  formed in the east with Canadian capital within the last few ycais, the  Granby Co, is today tbe only one the  stock of which is worth as much or  more than when the properties were  fiist incorporated, and which has systematically gone about the business  (ot which it was lOrganized, has nerei  closed since beginning, and has steadily improved in the eyes of the general  investing public. It ba-r been mining  its properties, not the public,  , Last yew, when the p| esident of the  .Granby Co. was in Phoenix on his an-1  It is a curious coincidence that  about the time the Golden Crown  mine closed last year, the Biooklyn  resumed; and that this year when the  Biooklyn suspended, the Golden  Crown began to be worked again. We  hope to be ablejo announce soon that  both properties are working at one  and  the  same time.  It is now said that a syndicate of  English capitalists is now preparing to  build the long-talked of Coast-Koot-  enay railway. Peihaps this is one of  the direct results oi the recent finding  of a practicable railway pass through  the Hope mountains by Mr. Dewdney  ���a pass, by the way, which was pretty  well known to exist for some time past.  The ratepayei s of Phoenix showed  their, wisdom last Monday in passing  by an overwhelming vote the amendment to the water and light franchise  by-law. The water system, both for  fire protection and for domestic use,  will be pushed to the quickest possible  completion. It is quite evident that  the late payers have confidence both  in the city council and the people who  are installing the water system.  Just now the copper mining industry  is interested especially in the price ot  copper, which has been fluctuating ot  late. Lengthy articles aie 'appearing  in the leading mining reviews, pur-  poi ting to explain the fi hys and wherefores of the situation, but they do not  explain it very cleaily. They all seem  to agree on one thing, howevei, and  mat is that the Amalgamated Copper  Co, is able to keep up ihe present  average pi ice for some time to come.  "A few months ago the Gianby Co.'s  mines in this'camp abandoned the old  practice of working seven days per  week, and since the miners here have  had one day to themselves in every  seven. The Amalgamated Coppei Co.,  of Butte, Montana, owning the greatest  copper producers of that great camp,  has recently issued a similar order and  those propei ties are working but six  days per week. It thus appears that a  pet theoiy of the mining world is  giadually being overturned.  Thieves bioke into the shop ol P,  Burns & Co., at Phoenix, and coined  off the safe. The small si?e ol the  safe would seem to indicate that the  meat business is not all gold, even 11  Pat has saved enough to stall house  keeping in Calgaiy.���Ledge.
