At   Phoenix   the  two parties met, went over tlie Granby  mineb, exchanged 'greetings, and each  continued to the-starting point of .the  other party, each .thus  being-able to  view   the, construction   on  the new  Great .Northern line to Phoenix.

The last, thing in the |>arade  was a float drawn, by-six white horses,  there being 15 .or 20 little girls in  white in the float.  After arriving at the picnic grounds  there were plenty of amusements for  the young and old. A dancing pavilion had been erected, and it was well  ���"���atronized. Numerous small sports  were on the programme, together with  two or three boxing contests by local  celebrities, tug of war, etc.  The ladies took an active part in  the preparations for the day, and  special thanks are due to them" for  their untiring efforts to make the event  a success. Refreshments were served  at the grounds, and.the booths for that  purpose were well patronised. Nearly  every resident of the city visited the  grounds during the day, and thus  showed their sympathy with the object  of the picnic. Visitors were presesnt  from Greenwood, Grand Forks, Eholt  and Summit, and the hall in the evening would scarcely contain the immense throng that wished to trip in  the mazy.; The cake contest was won  by Miss Esther Docksteader, who received 1,885 votes, Miss Margaret Bell  receiving 1,225 votes. The day was  an unequivocal success.  come to  the  Boundary  in  a  private  car.    -  - (  The Great Northern people included  J- li.

The  party travelled in three private cars to  Grand Forks, and were accompanied  from Spokane by'J. P. Graves, manager  of the Granby Co.  Was A Good Concert.  The concert given at Miners' Union  hall by the Boncmian Concert Co. was  one of the best musical entertainments  given in Phoenix for a long time. The  small-house'-was doubtless due to  insufficient advertising of the show.  Herbert Taylor in his vocal selections  was practically pleasing, and Miss  Gertrude Marrack and little Glen also  did well.1 .Lovers of real music missed  it by not being present.

The delinquent taxes amout to about  $1,200, and the council needs . that  amount in its business.  Once again they are talking of establishing a skating rink at' Grand  Forks.  George D.

The work of extending the flume  over Twin creek from' Phoenix street  west, has been started. :  A field day of athletic sports was  held-Monday by the pupils of the  Grand Forks public school.  Some Rossland men have been looking over Phoenix with a view to starting an independent meat market.  Shot guns and rifles have been in  requisition this week pretty generally,  and some good bags of game have  been the result.    .  Albert I.

Last Saturday a party of Phoenicians  went up the main Kettle river as far  as Williams creek, after trout and  grouse. That they were successful the  editor of the Pioneer is able to testify  from first hand. The party consisted  of XV. S. Macy, L. Y. Birnie, James  McRae and Hank Monk\ The latter,  as an experienced hunter, plainsman  and fisherman, kept the party in high  spirits all the way, being no less successful than was Capt. Smith on a previous trip.  Mayor Rumberger returned Saturday from a trip to Spokane.   "  has purchased a  from the Granby  Qo., in Spion Kop, and has begun'the  erection of a residence thereon.  The Boundary Creek Times began  its ninth year of usefulness last week,  and rejoiced in the fact that it had so  far escaped the hands of the sheriff.  Sinclair Balfour, Jr., son of the senior member of the firm of Balfour &  Co., of Hamilton, Ont., was a visitor  in the city this week for the first time.  John Bell is reported to have had a  leg broken last Sunday at the Emma  mine. He was taken to the Greenwood hospital and attended by Dr.  Spankie.  Oscar XV. Dey, formerly the C.P.R.  agent here, but now at Rossland, visited his brother here this week on his  way to the coast, where he will spend  his vacation.  Tolin Sarsfield, employed at the  Brooklyn mine, had a ten-foot fall from  a stage in the Brooklyn mine Tuesday,  sustaining some painful bruises. He  is being cared for at the hospital.  The Mcintosh (Grand Forks) and  Teetzel (Nelson) syndicates are talking of building a railway into the Flathead country in East Kootenay, where  their valuable coal locations are situated.  About the first of October���or pos  sibly a few days later���the contractors  who are constructing the V., V. & E.  branch of the Great Northern railway  from Grand Forks to Phoenix, a distance of about 26 miles by the survey,  as well as the spur to the Granby  smelter, will have rail connection with  the smelter. In, about two weeks,  Porter Bros., who have the sub-contract for bridges, trestles and track laying, will start the laying of the rails on  the smelter spur. The steel itself,  which comes from the rolling mills of  Great Britain via Cape Horn, is beginning to arrive at-Grand Forks.  When the smelter spur is finished,  the Granby smelter will be able to receive cars of ore direct from Republic  and Rossland mines that have connection with the Great Northern sys  tern, as well as coke over the same  line from East Kootenay. in addition  to the C. P. R. connections.  The contractors generally on this  piece of railway work state that they  have not quite as many men as they  could use to advantage, but more*  laborers are expected.in at any time!  Notwithstanding this, however, Chief  Engineer Kennedy, expresses himself  as pleased with the progress being  made, and both he and L. E. Shields,  of Seims, Shields & Co., the head contractors, still think that the rails on the  line will be laid to Phoenix before  heavy snow sets in this fall and winter.  With the exception of some heavy-  pieces of rock work, the construction  on the lower end of the contract, that  is a few miles from Grand Forks, is in  an advanced condition, as'well as up  Fourth of-July creek for several miles.  Coming towards Phoenix, .Johnson  & Brandt, in Summit camp, have considerable heavy cutting, and so have  Pat Hughes and Burns & Jordan, the  latter doing all the work for several  miles at the Phoenix . terminals. All  of these contractors, however, are pusb-  ing things as -fast, as possible, and  every week sees a considerable piece  of the grade completed. Thus far six  or eight cars of powder have been  used on this end of the work alone.  Thursday morning at six o'clock the  largest blast yet fired on this new line  was set off on the contract of Martin  Weich, a few miles out from Grand  Forks. Five hundred barrels of black  powder were exploded at once, bringing down thousands of tons of rock on  the ranch of Frank*" Coryell. Preparations for the blast have been going  on for some time, tunnels being run  in the rock to hold the powder.. The  Cascade high tension power line, from  Cascade to Phoenix, which runs close  to the work, was put out of business  only an hour, as men were waiting to  repair any damage that might be done  by the blast. Johnson & Anderson  have also been preparing for a heavy  blast of some 400 kegs, a little farther  up the line.;  In one place the Cascade power  line was recently moved up and above  the railway work temporarily, for a distance ot about a mile, so as to be ��� out  of the way of the railway graders for  the time being.  In the matter of accidents, usually  so prevalent on railway construction,  good fortune, comparatively, has prevailed so far. But two men have been  killed by premature blasts, and one  has died in the railway hospital. When  it is considered that from 1,200 to  1,400 men are employed in a hazardous undertaking, this record so far is  good.  -At the terminals in Phoenix it is expected that the spur to the No. 3  Granby tuinel ore bins will be completed first, the first ore to be hauled  from the Granby mines over the Great  Northern going out over this track. At  the same time no time is being lost in  putting through the triple set of tracks  Coke'is beginning to arrive at the  Boundary Falls smelter.  At the Mother Lode mine the force  r.  now approaches 130 men.  Today. September 10th, is the regular  monthly payday at the Granby and  Brooklyn mines, when approximately,  $40,000 will be distributed .in .wages.  During August the Granby mints  shipped 42,030 tons of ore, being  nearly 8,000 more than: in July.' In  August 400 feet of development .were  done.   - - :-.',.  Rumberger and Dunn's claim; the  R.

The shaft being sunk on the Reliance, in Summit camp, is down 70  feet, and seven men are working in  two -shifts. Occassionally shipments  are being made. ,  It is expected that., the first ore  hauled by the Great Northern from  the Granby mines will be taken from  the No. 3 tunnel, to which the' spur  will be completed first.  Work has been started on the  framing of the timbers for the No. 3  tunnel ore bins for the Granby 'mines.  The ore bins will be located about at  the western end of Old' Ironsides  avenue.

In about a month, the .first of the,  two giantore crushers for the" Granby  mines, duplicates of the one now in  use, will be shipped from the works of  the Jenckes Machine Co., at Sher-  brooke, Quebec. The other will follow-  later.  Wedd'nc Bells (or Phoenicians.  Last week A. B. Hood, acting manager of the Eastern Townships Bank  here, left on a vacation which he will  spend at Sherbrooke, Quebec. The  Pioneer understood that next Wednesday, September 14th, Mr. Hood will  be united in marriage at Sherbrooke to  a cousin of Allan and : D. B. Morkill,  of Phoenix. The couple expect to return to Phoenix about the 1st of October.  Thursday O. B. Smith, Jr., mine  superintendent of the Granby properties, left for a trip to his old home  at Springfield, Mass., and will be  married on the 21st, insr. to an estimable young lady of that city, returning to Phoenix about the end of  the month. The newly married couple  will reside in the cottage formerly occupied by P. J. Dermody, which has  recently been overhauled and repainted. Mr. Smith was tendered an  impromptu smoker and supper the  night before he left by some 15 friends.  The many friends of both of the  soon to-be benedicts will doubtless give  them a warm welcome on their return.  An important stop in the programme  of the .Montreal, & Boston. Co. was  taken this week when a gang of men  was sent out'td theRawhide, adjoining  the Snowshoe mine, under Pete Mc~  Caskill as foreman to get ready for  making shipments of ore from that property. The Rawhide has never shpped  a ton of ore, but had considerable development done under the management  of the Dominion Copper Co. A long  tunnel was'run into the hill, and was  connected with a shaft from the surface,  showing up large bodies of excellent  ore. ...  It is the intention to erect ore bunkers at once at the Rawhide, capable  of holding 15 or 20 cars of ore, and to  ship the same to the company's Boundary Falls smelter. At present half a  dozen men are" emptoyed- in the  initiative wotk, but the forcfi'will be increased shortly.  At the Brooklyn the work of enlarging and retimbering the incline ,  shaft is proceeding steadily under fore:  man Callahan, and it is expected to be  completed by the end of this month.  The 30x30x30 pocket at the 150 foot  level is completed, and .there still remains about 125 feet of enlarging and  retimbering to be done to reach the  surface.     . -  It is understood to be the intention  of the management of the Montreal &  Boston to blow the smelter in about  the 1 st of October, when some of the  properties at least will be in a position  to maintain regular shipments of ore.  W. R. Williams, accountant for the  Dominion Copper Co., is asking for  bids for the loading of the Brooklyn  and Stemwinder dumps on railway  cars, this ore not being included in the  sale to the Montreal & Boston. It: is  estimated that there are 10,000 or  12,000 tons of ore oh these dumps. As  soon as this work is done the Montreal  & Boston will at once erect the. ore  bins for which the lumber has been  ordered, part of which is now on the  ground.  School Enrollment is 98.  Principal  Thomber  furnished  the  following figures regarding the Phoenix-  public' school for the month of August,  school having been opened but eight  days in that month:  Total daily attendance 623; total  actual attendance 609.5; average daily  attendance 77,87; average actual attendance 79.18; number pupils enrolled 98.

The Denver & Hio Giande, in connection with the Miesouri Pacific, will run  a series of Personnllv Conducted Excursions to the World's Fair during June.  These excursions will run through to St.  Louis without change of ears, making  short stops at principal points enroute.  The first of these Excursions leaves Portland June 7th, and the second June 17.  The rate from Spokane will be ���60.00 to  St. Louis and return. Excursionists  going via the Denver A Rio Grande have  the privilege of returning via a different  route This is the met pleasant way,  as well as the most delightful route to  cross the continent.". The stops arranged  give an opportunity of visiting the various points of interest in and abont Salt  Lake City, Denver and Kansas City.

C.  gea��9����ooeooo��eoaeo<��ooo������)  The following notes on the Mother  Lode mine and smelter were prepared  by Frederick Keffur, M. E., for the  sixth annual meeting of the Canadian  Mining Institute: ���  Two years ago the writer contributed  a paper on "mining low grade ores as  '6atried'on at the Mother Lode, mine  in the llouudary District. It is the  purpose of the present, paper to briefly  note development of the . .system, par  ticularly-as regards the; quarrying and  economical handling of ores, and also  to touch upon certain features connected with sineUihg'operations. .  At, the mine in question, the series  of quarries has' been extended' until  there are at present four raises to the  surface from the main tunnel, with a  fifth in course of driving. In so far as  possible, the tops of these raises are  'maintained funnel shape so as to reduce handling to a minimum. While  the pits remained shallow it was an  easy matter to remove barren or very  poor rock by loading it into cars and  tramming to waste dumps; but as the  funnel system developed. it became  quite inadvisable to remove any except  large bodies of waste, for the cost of  removal had become greater than the  cost of smelting.  Experience has- shown, however,  that the evil effects of these smaller  bodies of waste have been more than  offset by the' improvement in, the  general run of the ore bodies due to  lesser quantities of partially leached  surface rock being included. So that  the average copper contents of the  135,500 tons mined in 1902 was ar>  preciably less per ton than that of the  136,800 tons mined in 1903.  In places, however, large dykes of  epidote and alkfli porphyry,5 and occasionally isolated bodies of limestone  occur, which are removed by blastsng  into raises.'all the ore having been previously withdrawn.  The crusher plant located at the  entrance of the quarry tunnel has taken  care of quarry ores alone, that from  the stopes being crushed by a Gates  machine located at the head of the  shaft.  Work is being 'carried forward to  consolidate the crushing plant aad do  away with the Gates machine, which, al  though a No. 5 "size, is entirely inadequate to the demands made upon  it. ���     ',.'.'  To this end a tunnel is being driven  to intersect the main shaft on the same  level as the quarry .^tunneV At the  shaft will be located a very large  pocket, and this will discharge into  five ton skips which will replace the  cages now used. The skips will  empty into a bin at the head of the  shaft, thence passing to either- one of  a pair of Jenckes-Farrel crushers, each  having a jaw opening of 2x3 feet.  These crushers will be driven by a  pair of 100 h. p. engines so arranged  that either engine can drive either  crusher, this to eliminate all chances  of stoppage through breakdowns in  in either engines or crushers ��� stoppages which past experience has shown  to be inevitable as well as costly. The  crushed ore will be conveyed by a  Robins belt to the main ore bins. All  car dumping and operating of bins and  pockets will be done with compressed  air. The same skips and crushers  will, of course, serve all levels in the  mine.  Although the ore will need to be  handled further under new management, crushing costs will be lowered.  For the reason that aside from stoppages for repairs to machinery being  practically eliminated, the provisions  of capacious pockets and shaft bins  insure steady operation of crusher,  which machine, if constantly supplied  with ore can crush a furnace day's run  in a single, shift, instead of this work  taking one and a -half shifts as at  present.  Jamming ot elevator buckets, constant repairs to them, and their clogging  with frozen fines in wjnter will be  eliminated���all serious drawbacks to  rapid work. The short tunnel to shaft  will also become the general entrance  to mine, both for men (whose houses  are all on this level) and foi materials  from shops and storehouses.  In the matter of power, the cost of  this  item  has been greatly  reduced  through the consolidation of power  plant, and the driving of'all machinery  with compressed air. The 100 Ii. p.  crusher engine formerly steam driven  from boilers near by, now uses com  pressed air which is heated to a considerable degree just before entering  engine. This expedient'has effected a  direct saving in labor from 5 to 7 cents  per ton of ore crushed. Air is furnished  by a "cross compound condensing  Corliss compressor, capacity 3,200 feet  free air per minute. A pair of boilers  located hear crushers and hoist can  furnish steam on short notice should  the compressor machinery breakdown,  thus guarding against . stoppages  through this cause. ;  ��� From a smelting standpoint, the ores  of the larger Boundary properties have-  as a rule grown less basic as the  workings extended and deepened.  That is to say, the proportion of^'iron  oxide ores, to the whole ore body has  sensibly diminished, there being no  great change in the amount of other  base, Whether this reduced proportion  of base to acid is to remain permanent,  it is (at least in the case of the Mother  Lode mine) quite impossible to predict. Long experience in mining  these deposits has shown that it is impossible to make safe predictioiis as to  occurence of zones of mineralization,  new ore bodies being frequently found  in unexpected places.  On the 200 foot level of this mine  there has been found considerably less  oxide of iron ores' than in either of the  quarries or the 300 ft. level. The iron  oxides of this latter level arc uniformly  of higher grade than that of the  quarries, carrying more copper and  gold, and do not appear to be directly  connected with the upper deposits,  although this is not absolutely proven.  No exploratory work has been done  bentath the 300 ft. level, (which is  about 500 feet under the highest crop-  pings of the ore.)  A considerable body of iron oxide  ore is at the mouth of the main tunnel,  but no work has been done on it owing  to close proximity of the crusher plant  This change in the basic character  of the ore is illustrated by the following  average s'ag analyses, taken over  corresponding periods 1901-2 and 3.  The small; tonnage ��� of foreign ores  treated affected the assays somewhat,  but not materially.  Vear        Silica        Iron      ,I.iine Total  'SO.'     33v5%   28.5% -20.6%    82.3%  1902 40.5       .22.2    ,-.20.2 ;      82.9.  1903 42.7    ,.    20.4>    ,20.2 83.3  ��� With slag running in silica from 40  to 43 per cent and with inatte at 40 to  45 per cent, copper, it is found that  the furnaces can be maintained in good  running condition, and slag losses kept  within proper limits.  Therefore, to guard against possible  scarcity of iron fluxes, it. has become  general practice to conserve the iron  ores of the mines, using only sufficient  to keep slags within bounds above indicated.       . .   ���  Smelting 250 Tons Daily.  The Los Angeles Mining Review  has the following regarding the company with which J. F.; Hemenway, formerly of Phoenix, is now connected,  at Val Verde, Arizona:  "It is learned that the Bradshaw  Mountain Copper Mining and Smelting Company operating in Yavapai  county, Arizona, is keeping its 250 ton  smelter continuously at work.- Arrangements will be soon completed  to increase the capacity of the smelter  to 600 tons The ore that' is being  sent to the smelter from the Copper  Link, one o( the company's claims is  said to average a good 10 per cent,  copper and about $5 in gold and silver.  The coVnpany had contracted for 1000  tons of ore from outside sources, which  in addition to the copper and gold  values in the ore, carries a good percentage of iron, making it valuable as a  flux."'  mmM MM YEARS  WITH A  C0MPUCAT9ON  or  FEMALE DISEASES.

"I deem it my duty to add a word  of praise to Chamberlain's Colic,  Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy," says  J. Wiley Park, the well known merchant and postmaster of Wiley, Ky.
