Old Ironsides Ave., Phoenix, B. C.  Last Tuesday afternoon, the long  expected" compressor plant tor the  Knob Hill and Grey Eagle mines,  ordered by the Miner-Graves syndicate  last May, arrived in l'hoenix and was  switched up to the new 40x80 Knob  Hill compressor house. 'The two 80  horse power horizontal tubular boilers  had been received some time before  and were bricked in a week ago; two  8x12 hoists were also forwarded at tlie  time the boilers weie shipped, and are  now in use.  'l'he shipment that arrived Tuesday  includes the different parts and accessories of the compressor proper. The  machine was manfactured by the  Jenckes Machine Co., of .Sherbrooke,  Quebec, and is a duplicate ofthe plant  now in use on the Old Ironsides, from  which the air has been taken up to  the present for operating the power  drills in the Knob Jlill. The compressor is of the Rand duplex condensing type, with steam end compounded,  and havingja capacity of 10 drills. This  gives tlie syndicate a total capacity of  20 drills, with which it will endeavor  to get along till the mammoth 80 drill  plant is installed���some time next  spring.  With the compressor plant also came  12 extra 3^ inch drills. The'cage  for the winze in the Knob Hill, now  being made at the Granby smelter  machine shops, is similar to those  lately installed on the Old- Ironsides.  New Flant to Double Output.  The present plant of the Old Ironsides is being crowded to hoist 300  tons daily for shipment, and at the  same, time keep us with- the development and stoping of ore. On this  accout but one furnace of the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks has yet been  blown in, as it could v.not, jip to;.the:  preseiifj'be supplied witl'i sufficient ore'  to keep it running. In about another  week or ten days, however, the ' new-  Knob Hill compressor will, it is expected, be. in complete running order, and  the output can then be quickly increased to 600 tons of gold-copper rock each  24 hours. When this i.s done, if the  C. P. R. can be induced to furnish the  additional ore cars needed in time,  the second smelter furnace will be  started.  On Ironsides and Knob Hill.  Every  week  sees a larger  force  work than the previous seven days.  Shipments are being kept up  steadily at the rate of 300 tons  every  day.  Last Monday was pay day and over  $15,000   was   disbursed   for    wages  alone.  Foreman Wright, who has charge  of the carpenters, has about 20 men  under him.  The diamond drill is still being used  in prospecting at the 300-foot level of  the Old Ironsides.  J. Ferguson has the contract for  painting the roofs ofthe Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill compressor houses.  The tramways and ore bunkers will  all be covered for winter work. 'This  week the work was started by roofing  the Old Ironsides bins.  Figures are being asked for a 30x33  addition to the Old Ironsides hotel,  two stories high, to he put on the west  end of the building. The new part  will give a larger dining room���greatly  needed with the steady increase ot men  ���and four bed rooms upstairs.  Geo. Fraser formerly witli the li. A.  C. at Rossland, and later with the  Sunset, Deadwood camp, has accepted  the position   of master  mechanic   for  Per  Laborers   Decline   to  Work Jor.,$2.50  Day.  This week Constable Darraugh, Indirection of Mr. McMynn, of Greenwood, employed Chris McRae as foreman, to go on With the temporary repairs oh the wagon, road between  Phoenix aiid the Snowshoe mine.  After working a day or two the four  men learned-that $2.50 was the day  wage, and quit, demanding $3 per day,  the regular price in this camp for  ordinary labor.  Mr. McMynn informs the Pioneer  that $2.25 and $2.50 is the rate heretofore paid' by the government for  labor in the Boundary, with one or two  exceptions, when,snow was going olT,  for a few days only. It is hoped the  matter can be adjusted so that no delay  will ensue in undertaking the .Summit  wagon road.  Mr. J. Kirkup, the' gold commis-  sionei, who has charge of government  disbursements, is expecced to appoint  a road superintendent, to have charge  of the permanent work-to be carried  on in and around Phoenix. Last  Wednesday President Rumberger, ol  the Phoenix Board of Trade, telegraphed Mr. Kirkup, urging haste in  starting the work, on account of the  wet season_starting in so early in Phoenix.  Another Republic Railroad.  A'press dispatch from Republic,  Wash;, states that the '.incorporation  papers were filed with the county auditor there by the Republic and Kettle  River Railway company, for the purpose of building a railway from Republic to the international boundary line  near the postoffice at Nelson, Wash.  'The capital stock is $10,000,000,  divided into 100,000 shares of the par  value of $100 each. 'The trustees are  C J. McCuaig, Montreal; Warner  Miller, New York; Albert A. Ayer,  Montreal; R. G. E. Leckie, 1). F. Hal-  lahan, A. F. Burleigh, of Republic; and  J. C. Ralston, Spokane. It i.s thought  that the company^ intends to connect  with the Canadian Pacific and run into Grand Forks. The road will be of  the standard gauge. Surveyors are  now on the ground locating a route.  Warner Miller and R. (1. E. Leckie  are. president-and-.vic&prc&Isnt respectively.

It is  well known that the latter has paid  over $1,500,000 in dividends, and is  shipping more oie daily thaueverr before. .  Lately, however, an expert is said  to have been sent out from London,  to examine the mine, and to have  reported most favorably on this wonderful, property. As a result it is now  rumored that $100,000,000 in a new-  ore body has been discovered in the  mine, and that $30,000,000 has been  offered for it by the Rothchilds, the  great money kings of Europe.  It is also current that the report of  the expert was cabled to London, and  as a result the stock has risen $u  and is now selling in American coin  at $46 per share. If the report is  correct the LeRoi will be the greatest  mine in the world. Its large ore  bodies have already become known  the world over, but the deposits have  never been supposed to be soimnien.se  as this report makes them. Clarence  McCuaig, who is interested in the B.  C.,, Republic and other mines, and  whip has been examining the LeRoi i.s  quoted as saying:  "Two years ago Mr. McDonald,  manager ofthe mine, told me that ore  existed'outside of what was supposed  to be the walls, and his work has  not only proved that he was correct,  but has also demonstrated beyond  question that the Le Roi is one of the  greatest mines in the world. The  main shaft is now down 900 feet and  the mine is thoroughly opened up to a  debth of Soo feet. .  . "On some of the levels the .ore. is  'being stopedTor a'width of .167 feet,  and faces 66 and 70 feet wid..* are common. Outside of this enormous vein  other parallel veins have been proved  to exist, and there is no reason to  doubt that these conditions will con-'  tinue the same until water level is  reached, 1200 feet lower, and it is  quite probable that the same conditions  will prevail to a depth of 5000 feet.  You must remember that these estimate are not haphazard, but are carefully compiled from what has been  actually demonstrated by the development."  School Site Unsettled.  Secretary Matheson, of the school  board, this week received a letter from  Alex. Robinson, superintendent of  public instruction, asking him to hasten the choice of a site, so that,construction on the.new school house  could begin without delay. Mr.  Matheson also heard from McKenzie,  Munn & Co., slating that the qucs-  tion of whether the Dominion Copper  Co. would donate a site, had been  referred to Hugh Sutherland, the managing director. Mr. Matheson has  also written the latter gentleman.  It is hoped the matter can soon be  settled, so that work on the much  needed structure can begin. There  are many who think ,the site offered  by Mr. Graves is, all things considered, the most desirable.  Football Club Dance.  BUILD MORE HOMES  Miner-Graves Syndicate to Begin at Once.

Robert Graham Fell 200 feet Down the Shaft  nnd Died Instantly.  Last Sunday a terrible accident  happened in the Cariboo mine in  Camp McKinney, by which one man,  Robert Graham, lost his life.  It appears that Graham was coming  up on the cage from the 400-foot level,  there also being a car on the cage  containing steel. When up to the  200-foot level the car, which it seems  Graham had neglected to hook to the  cage, got loose and rolled off the cage,  carrying Graham with it, who fell the  200 feet to the bottom of the shaft.  Above the 200 level there i.s no timbering, leaving more room at the sides  of the cage as it runs up and down.  Graham's body was b.idly mangled  and crushed, there being fatal injuries  on the head and sides, besides numerous broken bones.  Dr. Jakes, tlie coroner at Greenwood, was notified and went out Monday to hold an inquest. The jury's  verdict was death from accidJjpSg!  causes.  Graham was carman at the Cariboo,  and was a brother of Superintendent  Tom Graham of the Waterloo mine  in the same camp. His family resides  at Colville, Wash., where the remains  were taken by wagon on Tuesday  last.  The deceased leaves a mother,  brother and sister at Colville. He  was a nephew of James Monaghan of  Spokane, who has been prominently  identified with the Cariboo for years.  The benefit dance given by the Old  Ironsides Football Club last ���Thursday  evening, at Victoria hall, was a pleasing success. The floor had been  specially prepared for the occasion,  and the hall was prettily decorated  with bunting. A football, with n  photograph of the club, as it appeared  recently at Grand Forks, occupied a  prominent place in tlie hall. The net  proceeds will be devoted to clearing  up the new grounds.  Express to Phoenix.  G- W. Lawson, travelling auditor of  the Dominion Express Co., with headquarters at Revelstoke, was in town  this week, arranging for an express  service to Phoenix. The safe has arrived, and for the present express will  be brought in on the freight train: As  soon as1 the time table is changed,  probably early in October, it is expected that regular, passenger service will  be inaugurated to Phoenix.  Tennis Match Today,  Arrangements have been completed  for match games today between the  tennis players of Greenwood and Phoenix on the court of the latter. Greenwood will be represented by the following gentlemen: Messrs. Coulter,  Smith, Robertson, Siowe, Duff and  Appleby. Those who will hold up the  Phoenix end are: Messrs. Smith,  Boucher, Spier, Gordon, Clark and  Buckton. The games will be played  off this afternoon.  May Go To Europe.  It is reported that Mr. Smith Curtis,  M.~'P.\P.;"fdr''tHeM{'o'sslh'nd7.'ridih^^  West'Kootenay, may gO to Europe this  fall to receive treatment for his hearing, which handicaps him seriously in  his profession and in the House. He  has been encouraged to go and consult  the specialists, so it is stated, by the  success that has attended the treatment  of Hon. Clifford Sifton, of Manitoba;  whose hearing was much worse thdn  his own.���Greenwood Times.  Local Stock Market  Interest in stocks of this and surrounding camps keeps up. Ten thousand  King (Oro Denoro) were purchased by  local parties at 5 cents. Quotations  received by L. C. Crawford by wire  yesterday are as follows: Knob Hill  64, Granby 39, Old Ironsides 78, King  (Oro Denoro) 6, Morrison 2, Winnipeg  9, Okanagan Free Gold i}<, Golden  Crown 18.  Granted an Extension.  At last Monday's meeting of the  Greenwood city council, an application  was made by the promoters of the  Greenwood-Phoenix Tramway Co., for  an extension of the time within which  the company was to begin the work of  construction. The extension was  granted, the time limit now being August 31, 1901.  New Map of Similkameen.  Frank Bailey, owner of the town-  site of Similkameen City, at 20-Mile  creek, was in town this week, as enthusiastic as ever over the prospects  for that camp.  Mr. Bailey is just publishing a well  gotten up map of part of the Similkameen, showing all mining claims,  camps, roads, trails, rivers, creeks, etc.  The map is beautifully lithographed  and is issued in connection with a  pamphlet giving a great deal of valuable information about the Similkameen. The pamphlet will be out in  a lew days and will be for sale by all  newsdealers.  Three Times Bigger in Phoenix.  During the last week the shipments  of ore from Phoenix alone were 2100  tons. Those from alltlie mines in the  Slocan were 756 tons.  BRIEF  BUT IMPORTANT.  Gen. Joseph Wheeler, the famous  'American lighter, has been retired at  the age of 64, the limit.  As yet there is nothing positive as  to when the Dominion election, conceded to be near, will be held.  Reports of the massacre of large  numbers of missionaries in China by  the Boxers, are now beginning to come  in.  Lord and Lady Minto were given a  most enthusiastic reception at Rossland Monday and Tuesday of this  week.  President Krtiger, of the Transvaal,  has gone to Europe, to work for intervention while his iew followers arc-  being chased by Lord Roberts,  Last Saturday a terrible storm occurred in Texas, devastating the coast  to the extent ol $20,000,000 in value,  and destroying 4,500 human lives.  The city of Galveston was the worst  sufferer, and is practically in ruins.  The Center Star-lion Mask litigation, at Rossland, has been settled out  of court, after spending $250,000 in  the squabble. 'l'he Center Star people claimed extra-lateral rights into  Iron Mask ground���which was the  bone of contention tor a couple ol  years.  When S. C. H. Miner was in Phoenix in August, he informed the Pioneer  that his syndicate intended to erect  100 more cottages for the use of tho  married employees. , Lately the force  of miners has been'steadily'increased,;  and those with families have found it  difficult to  find residences.  This week tenders were asked,,of  local contractors for the construction  of five cottages. Four of these are to  contain five rooms and one'seven,  rooms. The bids are to be in today,  the specifications calling for, houses  modern in every respect. They will be  located east ofthe Granby apartmenr  house, on the Victoria claim.  It is the intention to continue construction, and erect additional. houses  later.  Strike in the R. Bell.  The R. liell has got some more good  ore, says the Grand Forks Gazette..  The last strikewas made on Thursday  when the drift from the bottom of the  lower shaft, oa the claim struck a body  of ore very similar to that shown up, by  the 200 foot shaft on the Oro Denoro.  ��� The ore is a greenish quartz plentifully impregnated with copper sulphides and showing also a decided  arsenical tendency. The size of the  ledge has not yet been determined, but  when Jim Jarre!!, who brought the...  news to town, left the mine, the whole  face of the drift was in ore arid the  wall had not been cut.  Mr. Jarrell brought in a big piece  of mineral from the new find, and it is  truly fine looking stuff, giving every indication that the R. Pell is destined to-  Jieco'me one of the big mines of the  district.  The strike was made at a:depth 011  the lead of probably' 150 feet'''..'';;;:  :���-���'���'���'���  -������-'���'���    In Boundary Mines.  "������'Development is going on'af the'job-  foot level oif trie Winnipeg. ���'/;���'  A car of ore is to be shipped front  the J. &' R.'in Wellington camp.  It i.s said that work is shortly to be  resumed on the Rathmullen, in Summit camp.  The Yankee Girl has closed down  while the force is building a wagon  road, to permit of ore shipments.  The 35-drill air compressor plant  for the Mother Lode, Deadwood camp,  is to be shipped from Montreal on the  25th of September.  Work has been started on clearing  the land for the Laidlaw pyritic smelter  that will be erected at Boundary Falls  on Boundary creek.  Next Tuesday, October 18, the  annual general meeting ofthe Brandon  and Golden Crown Mining Co., will be  held at the Hotel Armstrong, Greenwood.  Thus far about 3,000 tons of ore-  have been shipped,by wagon from the  City of Paris mine to the Granby  smelter. .Some 25 men are employed  at the property.  Having found the trend of the ore  body in the small shaft in the War  Eagle, work has heen resumed on. the  east drift at the 100-foot level, to>  strike the ore body.  Andrew Laidlaw visited the Evening Star, in .South Wellington camj>  yesterday, where some fine copper and  free gold ore i.s being found in the  shaft just being started.  The unreliable Grand Forks universal  correspondent has given it out that the  Snowshoe is to ship 1,000 tons of ore  to the Granby smelter. Nothing whatever of such intention is known at the  mine.  A 30-inch by i o-foot air receiver, a  t,}^ Little Giant drill and a ^i/i\2%-  \4 Snow duplex boiler feed pump have  lately been supplied by the Jenckes;  Machine company to the Morrison  mine in Deadwood camp.  R.K.L. llrown ("liarbarian" Hrown)  has returned from New York and is  now up the West Fork, where he will  shortly commence work on the Washington and Idaho. Mr. Prown's syndicate also owns the Monarch, a promising claim in Phoenix camp.  Superintendent Armstrong, of the  mining department of the Spokane Industrial Exposition, says the mineral  department of the exposition will l>e far  better than ever before, with better exhibits from the districts which exhibited last year and with many new camps  and districts represented this year.  Last Friday the Jenckes Machine  company shipped from Rossland over  the Columbia & Western railway to  Midway a 6o-hor.se power horizontal  return tubular boiler, consigned to the  Carihoo-McKmney Mining it Milling  company's mine at Camp McKiniEn".  This will furnish additional power inquired for extended operations.  .iffl  .<���*���������:���'  Ifl  ������i  ��� ,  ,, ;-',->,/'  -ftitl  ��� ,'f.!tt.<��,-.,.!j;,'?ai  ������:iM:-:wm  .���'"'���ftfe'.��?4s  :��� :pm-'::9W'  .���:,||i;;|p  .ill"  ���;-i,||P4i;  ���.'.'.jii'iahj  ��������� -<''-��v;5^  ::iiti  ������������ttmkq  -���wi  wm  ��� ;3iH:  :���������-.Mk  ���i':��  ������'It*'-/,','  :>��;��$���'"'"  &s  A\  ���Bsm^m^mm^ssmmmimmmmsmmmsm^^mm^Msms^^r  ~^&B^m^m^m^ssmmm^^^m  BMBR&Biti:  (^SF^^MMMSfeMWf-SsFf'S'i ifii

When the Uranby smelter was Mown
in a rouplc of *ceks ago,   congratulations were generally  intended   to   the
management of that institution on the

And these congrntolations were well
.earned.',"  In the face of wiseacres and
prognastitntors   galore,   who  weie  as
shortsighted as they were verbose,   the
work was  undertaken  in a,  businesslike way and put   tluough   by men ol

It now Appears  to lie a well  settled
fact that the P.n is Exposition is a gigantic failure financial!)—mu that it will
entail a colossal debt  on the   French
nation.    It is poor policy to call  youi'
neighbors names, w lien  you are  looking font aid to their  palionage.    This
is  what   the  French   press did at the
outbreak of the Transvaal war.    The
whirlwind   will   now be reaped,   as  a
consequence.

From all parts of the province,  and

AKE THEY SINCERE ?
Vot several years past, at each re-
furring election, the nominees ol either
party have been extremely liberal in
promises as to what they would do in
regard to redistribution, if they were
sent to Victoria. Notwithstanding all
this, however, not one thing, up to this
time, has been donev to reliex-e the
burdensome and Unreasonable conditions prex-ailing — especially in the
Boundary".
Here is a sample. Ia the June
elections 202 x-otes were cast in Al-
beriiK. and in Rossland riding—of
- which Boundary is an unwilling pari—
there were 2,631. That is to say, one
elector in Alberni counts as much at
Victoria as 13 in Kossiand.riding. It
is utterly ridiculous and absurd to a
degree.
The  government organs say generously (?) that redistribution  is needful—after   looking   oxer   the revised
election return-?.    If it is really meant,
however, it is for the first time.    This
discrejKincy  has   been  going on,  in
greater or Jess degree,  for  years—but
almost nothing  has been  done.    The
clique that holds orrk'e, by one means or
the other at the coast, ore loath to iose
their pocket boroughs;   for this is just
what will hapjien when a fair redistribution takes place.   Those who  have
prated about their  desire  to give  us
equitable representation, have not been
sincere.     If they   had   been, justice
\vould have been done to this section
long ago.
The Liberals at 'Revelstoke voted in
favor of a census every five years for
British Columbia, so that the representation may be adjusted moreticquently.
They seem to have forgotten that this
will imolve a change in the British
North American Act, and this is not
very likely lo be made, even to meet
the exceptional case oi this piovinee.
—Colonist.
But there is lio reason why we
should not have representation according to population in the provincial
assembly. The British North American act docs not work against that.

is, nevertheless, one of the best appointed

Is a  mine a "wildcat" because the stock in  the company owning it is selling at a  nominal figure? If so then thcGranitel  Mountain was a "wildcat," for its stock  was sold for less than ten cents a  share, yet it paid over $13,000,000 in  dividends, and is still being profitably  operated. Iron Mountain was sold as  low as eight cents and has paid over  lialf a million in dividends. These  mines were once'only, prospects with  ten-loot holes, and so was every,, other  great mine. The fact i.s a "wildcat"  is only such when time and development show it cannot be made a 'mine,  and yet it may, as a prospect, have  had great promise and worthy the expenditures made in an effort to make  it amine.���Western Mining World.

Printing pS: Lithographing Company is  included in the assets. The assignment caused much surprise -among  those who" heard the news. The assignment was due to numerous large  unprofitable investments in the province, although the estate comprised  among its assets many valuable investments and would pay over 100 cents  on the dollar.  Mr. Bostock, however, realizing that  necessary large sums were not available  ready to satisfy immediate demands,  thought the safest and best way to satisfy creditors was to assign and thus insure full returns for those who had  claims   against  him.���The Colonist.  A young man named Barber led  Miss Shaver to the alter the other day  in a southern village. We presume ail  the "little shavers" will be Barbers, remarks an exchange.  1 Andrew Laidlaw whose company is  erecting a pyritic smelter at Boundary  Falls, says that the present plant is  somewhat in the nature of an experiment and if it proves a success his  compay will build similar smelters at  various points in the district.

PHOENIX ANOTHER  Is Already the Second Camp in Ore Shipments  in British Columbia.  The following facts about Phoenix tell the story of what capital has already accomplished in the chief  mining camp of the Boundary. There are yet many promising, prospects well worthy ot business like  exploitation.  Phoenix itself and the camps to which it is the nearest banking aud business  point, are now shipping 3,500 tons of gold-copper oi'e per week, or I 32,500 tons  per 3'ear.  The Knob Hill aud Old Ironsides, situated iu the vary heart of the town, arc  alone shipping 300 tons daily, or 2,100 tons per week.  The B. C. mine is shipping 150 tons daily-, or over 1,000 tons weekly.  Other properties, such as the Golden Crown, Winnipeg, Athelstan, etc., arc  shipping not less than 50 tons per day, or 350 tons per week.  The ore shipments from Phoenix alone far exceed the combined output of all  other mining camps of British Columbia, outside of Rossland.  Yet Phoenix is onty iu its earliest infancy.

A noticeable figure in   the  convention was that ol" Smith Curtis,   whom  ihe people of the   south   refer   to   as  "Curtis of  Kootenay,"   because   they  say   he is   the '"first .representative   of  conspicuous ability the Kootenays have  ever had in thejpcal house, an opinion  in which the   whole country will coincide.     .Mr.    Curtis,   within   the  past  year, has made a permanent   place for  himself in ihe public life of  this province.    He is an ideal political   leader,  tactful, resourceful, fair,   firm,   with   a  wide knowledge of men and affairs, the 15^  kind of a leader who not only-inspires  confidence in his   followers,   but  also  their love.    A brilliant speaker,, whose  eulogy  of Sir, Wilfred Laurier  at   the  convention   the other evening will not  suffer   by   comparison   with  anything  that the past master of oratory himself  has said.     Mr. Curtis is an   advanced  thinker   on   economic  questions, -but  practical   withal.    Keep  your  eye on  Curtis; there i.s no position in' tlie  gift  of the elei-torate too big for his abilities,  and the electorate itself will   recognize  this fact in the near future.���Kootenay  Mail.

There are several candidates in the field. Among those are  Hon. C. H. Mackintosh, Mayor A. S.  Goodeve and Dr. Bowes of Rossland;  John Elliott, barrister of Nelson. It is  safti that Revelstoke has no favorite  son to put in the field. Kaslo might  have a candidate up her sleeve, but if  she has there has been no imtirnation  made of the fact. It begins to look,  however, as if the choice really lay between the three aspirants for the nomination in Rossland. Governor Mackintosh has a nuiiiber oi" good friends  in this riding, who would like to see  him returned to the Dominion parliament in order to compensate him for  the defeat which he sustained in the  recent contest for the seat in the provincial house.
