To tiik Stockhoi.dkks ok the  Qrnnby Consolidated Mlolnj, Smelling & Power Co , Lid.  Gkntucmen :���Although a large tonnage of ore was treated, the production of copper bullion during the year shows a slight falling off, due en-  liiely to the fact that no outside matte was purchased for treatment. Nevei-  theless, the profit���$712,649.26���is considerably larger than last year, owing,  partly to great economies introduced during the year and partly to better average prices for metals. It is especially interesting to note that hy far the larger  proportion of the profits was earned during the last few months of the fiscal  year.  In March last, the new line of the Great Northern Railroad Company,  connecting the smelter at Grand Forks with the mines at Phoenix, was completed, and since that time ore shipments have been received by both the  Great Northern and Canadian Pac.fic Railroad Companies.  In the Phoenix Camp, the company has, during the year, materially  increased its holdings by acquiring there, by purchase, the Monarch Group, the  Marshall Group and the Missing Link; and after the first of July, the Gold  Diop claims, all adjoining the mining properties of the.company in the Phoenix Camp. These acquisitions will facilitate the working of, the mines owned  by the company in the past, and, with the ore reserves on hand, will satisfy the  largely increased demand of the smelter for raw material for a long time to  come.  It .was decided last winter to add two blast furnaces to the six then in  existence, thus increasing the smelting plant at Grand Fork1* to eight blast furnaces, and it was hoped that they would be in commission by mid-summer of  the current year. A number of unforeseen contingencies, however, caused  considerable delay, with the result that the seventh furnace was not blown in  until October 3rd and the eighth is expect..d to be in commission by the 16th  inst.. Consequently, no benefit was derived during the last fiscal year from the  operation of the two additional furnaces.  These extensions and improvements necessitated a large outlay of  money. It was found necessary to widen the tunnels, equip the same with an  electric locomotive haulage system and provide new 10-ton steel ore cars. Resides, a new crushing plant had to he erected and new ore bins installed in  order to facilitate the shipment of ore over the Great Northern Railroad. At  the smelter, in addition to the new furnaces, a new. blowing engine and accessory machinery, as well as new ore bins, had to be erected. The method of  handling the slag from the olast furnaces was changed, as also the method of  charging the furnaces into a new and better system, both of which are now in  operation and have materially lessened costs. These improvements entailed  an outlay of about $350,000 in the past year, and additional sums will be required-during the.puirent fiscal year. .   ������.    - ...  The mines, at which development work is constantly pushed, look well;  the quantity of ore Mocked out is largely in excess of that in sight last year.  The smelting works, thanks to the improvements recently introdu *ed, are in a  high s'ate of efficiency. The company is entirely free from debt, and in addition to a large cadi balance on hand, has further available assets in the shape  of blister c >pper in trail-sit from the smelter to the refining works.

The ore fou id last week in the hot  torn of the 135-foot shaft on the Prince  Henry, proves to be ol a very rich  character, and is said to lie increasing  in size with depth.  A small air compressor is to be installed at the Rawhide mine by the  Dominion Copper Co., a commencement on getting the foundation ready  being made this week. About 40 men  are now on the company's payroll.  A committee of smelter men waited  on Supt. Hodges at the Granby smelter late last week, and asked for the  introduction of the eight hour system.  Mr. Hodges replied that he would submit thss matter to;the directors of the  company.  This issue of the Pioneer contains  the full annual report of the most important low grade mine in this section  ���the Granby-���a*id also the annual report of the most important high grade  mine���the Providence. They make  interesting reading;  A. j. McMjIlan, formerly manager  of the LeRoi,-has taken out an injunction, as a shareholder in the company,  against the disman*ling of the'company's North port smelter. It is said  that one of the blowers was to be taken  to the Trail smelter, where all LeRoi  ores now go. . .  The Midway & Vernon officials completed their inspection of West   Fork  properties,   including   the   Sally   and  others, and left this week for Vernon,  where they will look into  the  agricultural   possibilities   of that end o' the  road.    A. A. Arthur, who is financing  the road, Frederick   O.   Harvey,   the  mining engineer, and C.  B.   Schmidt,  the   agricultural   authority,    were  all  more than pleased with  the   investiga  tions thus f.tr made, and an announce  ment will probably shortly be-made re  garding the contract for the entire 150  miles of the new line.

Attempt  BANK  Was  at    Midway  Frustrated.  Sunday night three men made an attempt to rob the branch of the Eastern  Townships Bank at Midway, no doubt  attracted by the proximity of the paydays on the V., V. & E. and Midway  & Vernon railways. It was early in  the evening, and E. C. Moe, the acting manager, saw the three men at the  rear of the building. Not finding an  officer readily, he shouted at them,  and, receiving no answer, began to fire  at the thieves, sending five bullets  after them, the robbers returning the  fire. A large crowd was attracted, and  the thieves escaped, doubtless across  the Kettle river and into the State of  Washington, but a short distance away.  An examination showed that the  back door of the bank building, a one  story wooden structure, had the panel  partly cut out, and but for the vigilance of Mr. Moe, the robbers might  have gained entrance to the building.

Shu, j Aud,torb'  Tu Present   "David  Garrick"  at   tbe   Opera  House Here.  There is no comedy in English  drama I hat enjoys the position in the  repertoire of English and American  stars as does J. W. Robertson's "David  Garrick." The play is based on a supposed incident in the life of the great  actor of that name and is recognized  as a classic the world over. While  comedy chiefly predominates, still  there is a beautiful story of sentiment  running throughout and an opportunity  to display the versatility possessed by  most actors who have appealed in the  part.  As '-David Garrick," Mr. Nelson  will be seen in his favorite comedy role  and one which he has played with  great success from coast to coast. The  company is admirably cast and thoroughly enjoy the comedy roles as a relief from the usual heavier parts. The  period allows of most beautiful costuming and elaborate scenic effects.  "David Garrick" will be preceded  by Ihe closet scene from Hamlet which  has justly been described as "the  greatest scene from the greatest play  ever written." Mr. Nelson and his  talented company should be greeted  hy a crowded house when they appear  here at the Miners' Union hall, Wednesday, Nov. 1. This will be Mr.  Nelson's last appearance in Phoenix  for a year, as his manager has completed arrangements for an extensive tour  through the  United States.  'Dr. Robert Bell, of Ottawa, acting  director of the Dominion Geological  Survey, was a visitor in Phoenix Thursday, on a quick trip through the Boundary, being on his return from a visit  to the Yukon country, where he has a  number of field men at work. It is  six years since the doctor was in Phoenix, at that time there not being much  development work accomplished in the  large mines of this camp. After being  taken through the Granby mines by O.  B. Smith, Jr., the superintendent, the  doctor was inlensely gratified to note  the progress made and the extensive  scale on which mining is being carried  on here.  His visit here at this' time was for  the purpose of looking over the ground  lo some extent, as the doctor intends  to send parties into the Boundary next  year to make structural and other surveys of this section. Four years ago  Prof. Reginald W. Brock, who is under  the doctor, made a survey of the  Boundary, and funher work of import  ance will be done here.  Dr. Bell is a veteran in the service  of the Dominion geological department, having been in the active work  of the department for 4S years, and  being the successor, at the head of the  department, of the late Dr. Dawson.  In preparing and laying out his work,  he is called to the remotest parts of  the Dominion of Canada, having been  across the continent dozens of limes,  and, as a sample, having visited far off  Hud-on's Bay no less than twenty  times This year he has 35 parties in  various parts of the Dominion, comprising some 75 men, making surveys  of different kinds. In the department  buildings at Ottawa he has as many  more assistants in all capacities. In  the last few years the work of the department, under the doctor's direction,  has been more along industrial lines,  having specialists looking after surveys  in coal fields, clay beds, and all sorts  of metalliferous deposits, to be of the  greatest assistance of those interested  in these industries.  Is Building  Westward   From  Midway.  Makes Three-Cornered  Interesting.  Fight  At last, notwithstanding theassever  ations   of Sir  Thomas  Shaughnessy,  president of the C.P.R ,   to   the  Cjii-  trary,   the   C.   P.  R. is- beginning the  work of extending that  line   westward  from   Midway.      Last Monday W. P.  Tierney, of Nelson, for years a C.P.R.  contractor,   arrived   al    Midway With  some 50 laborers, and at once   began,  the   work   of getting ready for active  construction work.    At the same time,  R.   A.   Bainbridge,   engineer   for the  company at Vancouver, came in   with  surveyors,   and   they   began cross sectioning on the route westward that had  been surveyed for some years.  This is an interesting state of affairs,  not only to the residents of Midway  and the Boundary, but to those who  have been watching the railway game  in the Boundary for the last few years  ���a game in which James J. Hill has  been crowding the C.P.R. pretty close,  and incidentally securing large chunks  of tonnage available here. It is given  out that the C.P.R. intends to construct right through the Similkameen  to a connection with the Nicola branch  now being constructed from Spence's  Bridge to Nicola lake.  Not a stone or pebble has been left  unturned by the C.P.R. to delay the  building of the Great Northern extension into the Similkameen district.  Every available obstacle has been  thrown in the way, and a few other  kinds. The latest is the quarrel over  right of way three or four miles west of  Midway, where the Hill line crosses  the corners of some blocks of C.P.R.  land. This is being settled in the  courts, and meanwhile Mr. Hill's.contractors are steadily going on with their  construction in other parts and losing  no time. Some seem to think this is a  big bluff on the part of the C.P.R.,  but this remains to be proved. Meantime, Midway is once more feeling renewed life in every direction.

The Pioneer is in receipt of a copy  of the "Okanagan Valley," a sumptuous publication, issued by the Vernon  News. It is certain that no better advertisement of any section of British  Columbia was ever published, and it  should be of the largest benefit to the  Okanagan. It is splendidly printed on  fine paper, and is full of half tone  plates of scenes around Okanagan lake.  The News is to be warmly congratulated on the puliication, which cannot  fail to redound to its credit and to that  of every one represented therein. lt  was issued primarily for distribution at  the Dominion  fair.  <>  t.  ���  o<c> ���'����������<*><��<>���'*��� o-o-<>-<*"0-^-* ���^������e>^<^-��>-*-���-*���*���*��� ������^ ��*��������������� '���>�����'  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

In keeping with a custom inaugurated by the Pioneer three years ago, this  paper will issue a "Holiday Number  this year, and an endeavor will be  made to make this number better than  any that have gone before. Arrange-,  ments for the carrying out of this plan  are now nearly complete, and we have  every confidence that we shall be successful in publishing a number that  will be a distinct benefit to the Boundary as a whole���as we have ample  evidence previous numbers have been.  This year there will be about 50  pages of reading matter, with a cover,'  halftone engravings, etc., the whole  realistically depicting the mining and  smelting industries of the Boundary  country. No important part of the  Boundary will be overlooked, and no  effort will be spared to publish a number that every resident of this section  will be only too glad to send away tc  capitalists looking for investment or to  friends already interested in this much  favored section.  The publication of such an issue  here is an undertaking of no small  magnitude, and aside from the actual  mechanical work, all of which will be  done in Phoenix, means a great amount  of work. In view of this fact and the  further fact of the acknowledged usefulness of such ���*. publication in making known the Boundary to the outside  world, we bepeak in advance the hearty  co-operation for the Holiday Number  of the Phoenix Pioneer for 1905-06 of  those who really have an interest in  seeing this section forge ahead as one  of the really great mining districts on  the American continent.  eight months, and   the  inconvenience  for this needless and inexcusable delay  still continues.  The department,   when  the   matter  was under  consideration   last  spring,  gave it out that,   as  the   net   revenue  from the  Phoenix  postofice  was   bui  some $1200 per annum, and it  would  cost that much or more   to  bring  the  mails to Phoenix on the Great   Northern, it was not to be thought of.   Who  ever heard of such  a  lame  argument j President  W.  M. Doull Visitor reason for such a  state  of affairs?:  But if it does hold good���that  the  revenue from any community must be  made to pay the cost of carrying   mail  to and from that particular community  ���then let the department  enforce   it  to the letter.    Let the postmaster-gen  eral at once cancel  all   mail services  into the Yukon, the Cariboo and dozens of other localities that could be  mentioned. In those localities the department is certainly not self sustaining.  Why should Phoenix be discriminated against in such a matter, or in  any other matter ? It cannot be said  that full notice was not given to the  department, nor can it be truthfully  said that Phoenix is not sufficiently'  imporant to warrant the service being'  put on.  One thing the Ottawa officials can  rest assured of, and that is that the  business interests of Phoenix will not  let the matter rest until the accommodation asked for last February is put  into effect  fiootei*a��y Engineering' WbrRs  NELSON, B.C.  founders and Machinists.

Last week's Rossland ore shipments  were 5,650 tons, or 270,960  tons  for  the year to date.  r *  The dumps at the Monitor in the  Slocan are being shipped to the Rose"  bery zinc works to be treated.  Sir Arthur Stepney, of the Stepney  ranch, is putting up money to further  develop the coal find at Enderby.  The first carload of ore has been received at the Frank smelter. It came  from the Grey Copper mine at Sandon.  On account of the fire at the St.  Eugene mine cutting off shipments for  two or three months, the Nelson smelter may have to blow out for a short  time.  On or about December 1st, the St.  Eugene silver-lead mine, at Moyie, is  expected to be in shape to resume ore  'shipments, after repairs from the recent disastrous fire.  . J. A. Haralson, an American mining operator, has taken a bond on 16  silver-lead claims on Seymour Arm,  averaging $65 in silver, and intends to  prosecute active development work.  He is well pleased with his investment  and after a brief visit to his home in  the United States will return to this  province and proceed with the opening  up of what he believes to be as rich a  silver-lead proposition as there is in  British Columbia. Mr. Haralson has  been spending a week in Greenwood.  The bond was for $240,000 and $10,-  000 must be spent next year.  MOO Reward $100.

Campbell, manager of the company,  visited Phoenix,  in   looking  over  the  extensive extensions of the company's,  pole lines into the Boundary now  un  der  construction.     The   party drove  from Rossland ,to Cascade and Grand  Forks  over   the new wagon road the  ' company   has recently  completed   at  large expense over the Guld   range  of  mountains, following the new pole line  largely,  and   tlience  came  to Greenwood and Phoenix, where mines  and  smelters will use the electric fluid to Be  furnished by the company.  ��� Mr. Doull, vvhose home is in Montreal,   was   much gratified at the progress being made with the installation  of the   high   tension double pole line  from    the   hydro-electrical    works   at  Bonnington Falls, a distance of some  eighty miles to Greenwood.      A  large  part  of the poles are now up and the  work  of stringing  the. heavy  copper  wire.to  carry the, current, of  60,000  volts has been started. -  The president  pf the company- also  stated   that   tfie  cost of the installation .of.the new machinery at Bonnington  on   Kootenay  river, together .with-the pole lines, will  run well.into a million  dollars,   when  everything is in shape.    The company  will have 28,000 horse power  for  industrial purposes when the installation  is complete in every detail.  According to present indications, the  lines into the Boundary will be ready,  for transmission purposes some time in  March or April, though a single line is  being rushed..thiough to the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks, to supply  power there before the system is complete, if .needed,-'as expected. The  smelters and mines in and around the  cities of Nelson, : Trail, Rossland,  Grand Forks, Phoenix and Greenwood,  as well as the cities themselves, will be  supplied to a large extent with the  power and:- light '��� from; this company  when present improvements are done.

Mt: Die KM in, Auditor.  MANAl'IW.  HI RECTOK'S KKI'ORT.  Gknti.I'MKN : On taking charge of  die Providence mine on November r,  1904, I engaged Mr. P. J. Dermody  is Manager.' taking the place of Dun-  .-an Mcintosh, who ha 1 managed the  mine up to that time. I found the ore  pract.cally exhausted so far as the work  had been done. In fact, we t.iok out  less than a car of ore from ihe old  workings; the dyke had cut the ore off  ,n the south. This dyke had never  been gone through up to that time.  Luring last year we have gone  throuuh this dyke, and are now in ore.  Our policy was t-i do sufficient development work to find out Iii st, so far as  possible, whether the ore was of sufficient volume to w.irrant us in expending any large amount of money for  machinery, and if so, put it in a condition that it cou'd be worked on an  economical and mining-like basis.  To accomplish the above was more  of an object than declaring dividends  from an exhausted mine, and we started development by sinking and drift-  iiv.', believing that it was better policy  to~place the mine on a permanent paying basis before attempting to pay  dividends. We think we have accomplished this, of which you will be better able to judge by Supt. Dermody's  repoit.  During ..the past year we have mined  657 tons of ore, which yielded $6 r,-  919.54. The co'it of mining 'was  $19.83 per ton, and the co t of hauling, assaying, freight and treatment,  510.71 per ton.  On assuming charge of the mine, an  nventory of the equipment and tools-  hen in the mine was taken, and found  it, had not nearly the equipment o  tools necessary for the men to do thei.  work. ..-������ .-.,:  We found the machinery in it "deteriorated condition, the Loiler beint  practically useless and not of sufficient  capacity to do the work, even if it were  in good condition: In fact, the mine  was shut down about two months, ow:  ing to the worn out condition of. the  boiler.       ���  Since taking'charge we have installed  a new 86-horse'power boiler with steel,  casing, suitable for removal should we  desire to change our shaft; also, a 7-  drill air compressor,-with..-all its equipment, including a trench in which wt  have laid water pipes, eivin'g us clean  water for our boiler and air- compres  sor. I his water is supplied by gravi  tation. Previous to this, the boiler  bad been supplied by water pumped  out of the mine, which being strongly  minerahzedwas very injurious to tlie  boiler. '  The Company has been forced into  considerab'e litigation duiing ihe year,  caused by the acts of former local di  rectors who controlled the policy of the  mine previous to this past year, and  from the testimony in several trals the  Honorable Justice Irving took occasion to censure.them in.open court in  the strougest and severe t terms, indicating that criminal' proceedings could  be resorted to.  The Company has spent much time  and money in prosecuting these cases,  and Iain happy to state, however/thai  the Company has.been successful, and  I take this opportunity to thank the  gentlemen who, at the expense of lime  and money and loss of business, gave  material aid in the splendid victories  of the Company.  I believe that the past year's development in the mine warrants the Company in installing additional machinery  for the further economic and expeditious working of the mine, and that  sufficient treasury stock should be sold  to pay for installing the necessary machinery and equipment.  Very respectfully,  M. F. Madden*, ".  , Managing Director.  superintendent's   report.  Gentlemen : I beg herewith to  offer a condensed report of the work  performed under my supervision in the  Providence mine from November "1st,  1904, when I undertook the management of the mine, to the 30th day qf  September, 1905. y  I found the mine in very poor shape,  all available ore was on the 300-foot  level, and was 43 feet long, 12 feet  high and 6 inches in thickness. This  ore I stoped out and shipped.  I started crosscutting at several  places on the surface of the claim, and.  did much work thereon, working until  snow fell, and I succeeded in finding  ore on the surface south of the entrance'  of what is now called the ''No. 2" tun;  nel (the 300-foot level), and I stripped  the wash off and opened the vein up"  for 100 feet, stoping down for 12 feet,  the vein being about 8 inches in thick  ness.    This ore I shipped  After demonstrating that this* ore  was continuous on the surface, 1 stait-  ed a drift on the No. 4 (200-foot).level,!  from the point where the previous work;  had ceased, and running south passed  through ihe dyke, which was about 20  feel in thickness, and immediately encountered oro.  I examined the north "drift of tlie  No. 4 level and drove this for about 25  feet, but found no ore. There was a  break. I ran three upraises, about 60  feet, but without.results.  To date I have drifted on the 200-  foot level 347 feet, crosscut 2.0 feet,  sunk 12 feet and raised 30 feet.  On the 300-foot level I have drifted  south 300* feet (this drift is about 14  feet high), raised ao feet, drifted north  42 feet, and made three raises of 30  feet each. - >        ���.  I have sunk the main shaft 75 feet  and crosscut to the ore 1 20 feet. I  have drifted on the 400-foot level 286  feet, 14 feet high, sunk a winze 26 feet,  raised 100 feet, and widened drift 150  feet. I also timbered and put in  chutes on the 200-foot level 130 feet,  timbered and put in sill floor and  chutes on the 300-foot level 1S5 feet,  and timbered and put in chutes on the  400-foot level 190 feet.  In addition to this I did a consider  able amount of surface work, including  cuts.     The following is a memo, of the  cost of the above work :  580 ft. drifting at $24.. .$1 3,92c 00  955 ft. drifts and tunnels  at $12    11,460 00  960 00  provements would .; cost in the neigh-1  borhoobV of $30,00.0...  ��� In conclusion, I would .ask. to'point  out that, owing to friction ii'�� the Directorate of the Company, the mine was  practically only running seven months  out of the eleven months covered by  this report.  :   All of which  is   respectfully  submitted.
