Array ./ ' .      I    ���    '��� -'  .  The largest copper mines in  the Dominion are situated  at Phoenix. The Granby  Co. employs 600 men, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000, while the Rawhide pay roll is $18,000.  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary Mining1 District  The Phoenix ' Pioneer is  published in tho highest-  municipality in Canada���  altitude, 4,800 ft.

There is no possible doubt  that Granby stock will again be  $100 a share.  Geo. L. Walker, in answer to  numerous enquirers in the current  issue of the Boston Commercial,  has the following highly optimistic  article on Granby Consolidated:  Granby stock is growing in popular favor. A great many of the  small stockholders have been selling  it on the recent advance and strong  interests have bought.  As I have repeatedly stated, there  is no doubt whatever that Granby  .slock is worth at least $100 a share.  Small stockholders who sell at current prices will deeply regret it two  or three years hence.  The reference to operating costs  at Hidden Creek as compared with  those at the Phoenix mine of the  Granby Consolidated, which you  mention had in mind the cost of  treating a ton of ore. The Hidden  Creek ores are a better smelting  product even than those of the Phoenix property.  At Phoenix 25 cents per ton is  paid for transportation of .ore from  mine-to smelter. The cost of transporting bullion from Hidden Creek  to the refineries on the eastern seaboard will be as low or lower than  from Phoenix, and operating costs  of $2.50 a ton and an average recovery of 35 to 40 pounds of copper  are within the range of possibilities  at Hidden Creek. ���- ���,  After the,new smelter at Hidden,  Creek is completed the company  should ,be .able to ���prodiice.<Jat*..both.  plants, approximately. - 45,000,000  pounds -of'copper annually at"a'cost  of nine cents a pound. This will result in net earnings of around $25 a  share on a 17^-cent  metal market.  The owners of Granby .stock who  arc taking advantage of this advance  Record Run of Granby Crusher  With   the   evident   intention    of  reaping the full benefit of the present  market   price   of copper,   the  activity at the Granby Consolidated  company's  mine   and  smelter  continues  at high   pitch.     Both   in the  shipment of ore and treament a high  average is  maintained  from  month  to   month.      Recently  a   new    record was reached  in  the amount of  ore  passing   through   the   No.    3  crusher,   when    on   Friday  of   last  week, during a  run   of eight hours,  the enormous quantity of 840 tons  was   crushed.       Shipment    of ore  this  week   is    well   above   the   old  average and, barring the unforeseen,  the output  for the year bids fair to  eclipse   all   other   annual   outputs.  The mine itself never looked better,  the amount  of ore   broken   and in  sight being almost unbelievable.  B.C. Mining  The Granby Consolidated, Mining, Smelting and Power  Company, Ltd.  notTce.  NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN,  that the twelfth ordinary general  meeting of the Granby Consolidated  Mining, Smelting & Power Company, Ltd., will be held at the  Branch Office of the company, 52  Broadway, New York, N.Y., on  TUESDAY, the first day of October,  1912, at 10.30 a.m., for the purpose  of electing directors and transacting  any other business that may properly  come  before   the   meeting.

Magnesite   deposits   occur 'near  Atlin townsite.  Some of the coast limestones are  remarkably pure, going as high as  99'8 per cent carbonate of calcium.  About 75 per cent of the gold  production of the province is from  the smelting of copper bearing ores.  The black sand found in the  placers on Siwash creek, Yale district, is said to give values in gold  and platinum.  A rare mineral, used for incandescent lamps, is reported to occur  in the Clearwater portion of Ques-  nel lake district.  Small quartz veins are occasionally found in the coal seams of the  new coalfield near tne headwaters of  the Skeena river.  ��� A L. Dingee, representing a Vancouver syndicate, has recently purchased a number of gypsum claims  at Granite in the Tullameen.  The death is reported from Revel-  stoke, a few days ago, of David  Moore, a former lead buyer for the  Trail smelter. A short time ago he  was commissioned by the provincial  government to make a report on the  mineral prospects of the Big Bend  country, and was at Revelstoke for  the purpose of commencing the  work, when he was seized with illness. The cause of death was lead  poisoning, contracted many years  ago.  The two  diamond  drills are busy  Visit to River Properties  J. E. Thompson, president of the  Phoenix     Mining,    Smelting     and  Power  company,    accompanied   by  N. J.   Carson,   N. Sweetser  and E.  E. Campbell, mining expert for the  Granby company, travelled by auto,  on Sunday, to the former company's  holdings al Beaverdell, staying over  night  and   returning   to  town   the  following day.    The railroad is now  laid  past  the mine  property, about  fifty   miles  of   steel   from   Midway  having been put down.      The  distance from the  mine to  the railroad  is about two  and  a  half miles, and  the product  will  require  to  be carried by   team   to   the  siding.    The  cost of placing the  ore on the cars  is estimated  at $2.50  per ton; not  such  a  big expense when  the high  grade character of the  ore is  taken  into   consideration.     There  are  six  men employed at  the mine, some of  them, being on  contract  extending  the main tunnel into   the old workings.    This  will give them a depth  of between 250  or  300  feet on the  main   lead.     The  property has   already shipped some  ore to the Con-  sblidated    company's     smelter     at  Trail.      On   the journey the   party  stopped    at    the   Riverside   mine,  where they  found them loading ore  for shipment to  the Granby smelter  at Grand Forks.  Salutary Fines  An urgent hurry call, on Tuesday  evening, summoned George Stan-  field, of the Provincial Police, to  the neighborhood of Spton Kop,  where he discovered  a certain inter-  Bell Tower Finished  The construction of the bell tower  and  installation  of the bell on St.  John's  church   was completed  this  week. Although to outward appearance     the   work     seemed   simple  enough, the contrary turned out to  be the case, owing to the weakened  condition  of the north side of the  structure.    However, such difficulties as presented   themselves   were  eventually overcome by the carpenter  in   charge  of  the  work,   John  Beachey, who has every  reason to  be  congratulated   on  the all-round  excellence   of his   work.     Like   the  master he serves,   the  rector, Rev.  L. B. Lee, is no small artist  with  the  chisel,   saw     aud   plane,    and  contributed  his part   in  the operation.      The    bell. itself,     which   is  covered      by     a    sloping,   hollow  sounding  board,    turns   the    scale  at  603   pounds   and   gives   out   a  rich   pleasing   tone   which   can    be  heard for a great distance,  especially in the Greenwood direction.   D.  L.   McElroy also very ably assisted  in the   work   by  providing  the gin  pole,    ropes    and   tackle,    besides  freighting  the  bell,  etc.,  from the  lailroad depot to the church.    The  bell and tower has been made possible through the  generosity of N. J.  Carson,   of Phoenix,   to  whom the  thanks  of the rector and congregation are due.  PHOENIX CITIZENS  INTERESTED IN SLOCAN  James Marshall Negotiates the  Tunnel Rights for Dunedin���  Shows Rich Specimens.  -^  Death of Former Resident  James Marshall, proprietor of the  Brooklyn hotel, returned this  week  from   Sandon,  where  he has   been  visiting some mining property he is  interested in.   The property in question is the Dunedin  claim, immediately    adjoining    the     Reco-Good  Enough, one of the famous dividend  payers  of   the   Slocan.    A   tunnel  through the latter reaches the lead  on the  Dunedin, and   it was for the  purpose  of securing the  rights  to  use this  means  of taking out  ore,  that Mr.   Marshall   made  the trip.  He states that he was quite successful in   his negotiations   and  bought  the   tunnel     from    the   Reco-Good  Enough company.  He left a few men engaged in  cleaning up the tunnel, and in about  a month expects them to commence  operations on the ore, of which  Mr. Marshall states there is abundance in sight. Questioned as to  mining conditions in the Slocan,  Mr. Marshall stated he was favorably impressed. Deep mining is  now the watchword throughout the  entire district, and extremely fine results are confidently predicted. Previous   to 'leaving   he   heard   of the  Mrs.  Jos.   Strutzel,  received  the  striking  of   a   three  foot  lead   of  news  of the death, of her  brother,  John   Punch,   a former   resident  of If^ tKeDune'din" Associated with  solid  ore on the  Idaho.

This interesting" exhibit is  now in course of preparation and  will include ore samples from the  company's properties, refined gold,  silver, copper and lead, and will represent a value of many thousands.  The Rossland Miner says that on  the lowermost portion of the Le  Roi 2 grounds, on the 1650-foot  level, an undoubtedly good shoot of  ore has been broken into, as the assays prove, which show that it is of  an excellent grade. The finding of  paying ore at such a depth shows  that a long lifetime of profit lies before the mine. The management is  much pleased with the find. The  timbering of the shaft down to the  300-foot level, which was made  necessary by reason of a cave, has  been completed and the mine is  ith   a  full   force of  again  men.  running wi  Phoenix Lady's Success  The  many friends   of Mrs. Alex.  McDowall  will be   pleased,   though  not surprised, to learn of that lady's  success   in   her  recent   examination  for a teacher's certificate.     Her success is a  signal  one, for  she  managed to   capture  more   than  a sufficient number of marks that entitle a  candidate to a first-class  certificate.  Her  record as  a  pedagogue   in the  educational    establishments   of  the  old land   is a  brilliant  one, and she  adds to  her  laurels  the  rather rare  accomplishment of being   an exceptionally fine linguist.

An exhaustive examination was made of the  property, said Mr. Fraser, who with  his associates expressed themselves  as greatly pleased with the showings. Mr. Fraser states that he  spent several hours panning, the  result averaging 25c. to the pan.  The company have installed a new  hydraulic plant which is now being  6   operated.

New York Press Comment  Under the caption, "Perfidy's  Price," the New York World, publishes the following strong editorial  on the action of the United States  Senate in passing the discriminatory clauses of the Panama Canal  bill: ...,;'.-.,���.  "What at Washington they call a  compromise Panama bill, ��� retains,  the feature against which most comr  plaint has been made.. The compromise consists inV't-he introduction of provisions wholly unrelated,  but some of them have merit in  themselves that are expected to  win votes for their treaty-breaking  proposition which is the' backbone  of the measure.  Thus there,������are"many.members'of  Congress who want free ships and  free materials for ship-building.  They get them by voting to violate  the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, so that  American coast-wise vessels may  use the canal free of tolls.  There are members who are  crazy enough for ship subsidies.  They get them in an indirect way  by this abrogation of tolls in favor  of ships -that already have a monopoly.  There are members who want to  amend the anti-trust law, and they  have done so by supporting this bill.  There   are   members   who   would  Home Rule Facts  Under the new scheme of Home  Rule for Ireland, the   "disthressful"  country  will  be represented  in   the  Imperial   house by a  delegation  of  42   members.      These   Irish   representatives   will vote   on   all  Scotch  and Welsh affairs, but oirthe other  hand   the Welsh and Scotch  members are to have no voice or vote on  matters   in   which   Ireland   is  concerned.       The   proportion   of  Irish  members   sitting   at   St.   Stephen's  at  present   is  enormous.      Ireland  sends 103 for a population  of about  4,382,000;    Scotland' sends   72  to  represent about 4,759,000, while the  great  English    metropolis   with   a  population of nearly 6,000,000 souls,  has to be   content with  only  sixty.  It will   be  seen   then  by these   figures that Ireland   with 377,000  less  population   than   Scotland,   has   31  more  members    than   the   Scottish  kingdom,    and    if     the    matter    is  viewed from   this standpoint alone,  there seems  little  or   no reason for  the granting   of a separate   parliament for the  Irish people.     If such  a   disproportion    of    parliamentary  seats existed in   this   country or the  United States, there would  be civil  war.  We're ready for every  demand for fall suits.

Is it wise for a nation supposed  to be devoted to peace and justice  to turn its greatest engineering  achievement into a prize-ring and  by bad faith to invite the powers of  the earth to meet it there with bare  lists?"  It was with something like a gasp  of surprise that  the   majority of the  Senate discovered  that  it had done  an  unpopular  thing  in  passing the  Panama Canal   Hill.       The  volume  of protest coming up from all parts  of the country startled the senators,  as some of them were frank enough  to admit.     They had flattered themselves that they had made the eagle  scream   in   a  way   to   win   plaudits  from     their   countrymen.      Instead  they    ��ot   vigorous   remonstrances.  in the   Senate  many a high-falutin'  speech   about    Panama    had    been  made.      The  canal  was ours,   constructed   by   our   energy   and skill,  paid   for   by   our millions,   and   no  other nation should   be'permitted to  say    what    regulations    we   should  make  for  its  use.     Fastidious persons, it is  true, pointed to a treaty,  and    our    alleged   agreements    and  obligations   under   it,   but,    in    the  first  place,   it might  be denied that  the   treaty  meant   anything   of   the  kind   asserted,   and,   secondly,   if it  did, were we  going   to be   so weak  and cowardly as not  to do what we  thought best,   with   our  own?    This  was the   fine  attitude   of devil-may-  care patriotism which   many   a Jean  Chauvin in the Senate adopted; and  is contemplated and the Speaker,:  Dr. Sproule, will be in Ottawa,  shortly, to take the matter up.  An investigation' which was held  this spring revealed considerable  internal friction, and two members  of the staff had even applied for  permission to cany arms. The  commission recommended the appointment of a new chief of the  branch and a general parliamentary  counsel. The superannuation of  some of the officers was also recommended.

Kerr, of Kelowna, B.C.,  paid Melville a   two  days   visit last  week.    This   is   his-   second   visit,  having spent a few days   here   two  yeais ago.   He was simply astonished   at  the  progress  the   town  had  made, and in an interview with him  he stated that there was not a town  in the west   today   making  greater  progress or  had  a blighter future,  lie stated that he had travelled over  a considerable part ot the  west and  nowhere did  he  see  such  signs of  progress and  prospective  development.    "It is simply marvellous" he  said, "Why there   are   towns being  boomed that can't be compared with  Melville.    They   tell you what they  have   got, but  this compared   with  the large number of men  employed  here by the G.T.P. which had a payroll this month of $50,000  is  nothing."    Mr. Kerr showed his faith in  Melville in a vciy practical  way   by  investing   in   more  property.     Another remark he made was that Melville property  when   compared with  values elsewhere was, he considered  very cheap.     In fact he said  it was  too low at  the   present  quotations.  "Vou are bound   to   grow, situated  as you are, a divisional  point   on a  transcontinental, and at the junction  of two of its  most   important branches.     He considered it would only  be a matter of a very short time before the C.P.R.  and C.N.R. would  both be here."

He  discovered   the  "black stuff" while  plowing  last   spring,    but   did   not  make his,   find known  until after he  had secured   his homestead patent.  Following   a thorough examination  by a former United States inspector  ''of mines, a company was organized  with a capital  of $1,200,000  to develop   the    pioperty.

Nelson Fruit Fair  Clad in the flowing garb of the  orient are the "Ishikawa Japs", who  are to be one of the premier attractions at the Nelson Fruit fair this  season, September 23rd to 28th.  This troupe, in connection with "Le  Roy and Paul," an acrobatic act of  unusual merit, and the "Idanias,"  five beautiful young ladies, constitute the free attractions of the fair.  These wonderfully clever men from  the land of the chrysanthemum,  have an act which for risky work,  ground and loft tumbling and juggling, would be difficult to excell.  The actors are gorgeously gowned,  and go through a series of astonishing evolutions such as head balancing, posturing, contortions, pole  balancing and other novel tricks  which make them the peers of their  kind. They come direct to this fair  from several ��� important engagements, including Brighton beach,  New York and Hammerstein's Victoria theatre.  Other interesting events will be  those of horse racing, rock drilling,  log sawing and chopping, but probably the biggest attraction of all  will be the aeroplane, which will  be seen for the first time in the  Kootenay. Aviator Edwaids, who  will make the flights, is noted fot  his having successfully started an  aeroplane mail route between Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver in  Washington. His performances at  the Nelson fair will be sure to  create great interest and certainly  should not be missed.
