$1.51 PER TON
While Smelting Expense Was
$1.65 Per Ton.
And   Talk  of  Profit Sharing
For Dominion   Copper.
A New.York report says : The low
grade properties of Iiritish Columbia
are rapidly assuming a position of importance as producers of copper.
Among the most progressive of these
companies is the Dominion Copper
Co. Its financial management, which
is in the hands of some of the strongest
men in New York, and the practical management ol its operating staff, selected
by Samuel Newhouse from the staffs
of the Boston Consolidated and Highland Boy properties of Bingham, are
fast developing a property which, it is
expected, will next year enter the
ranks of the dividend payers.
The figures of the complete report
for July, just received, show the company smelted for the month 18,599
tons of ore, producing 373,304 pounds
of copper at a net profit of $32,000,
the smelting cost per ton being $1.65,
the mining cost $1.51, and the cost
per pound of copper produced, about
qyi cents.
By December ist, or shortly there-
afier, the management will have installed in its smelter a new furnace,
through which it expects to run 800
tons of ore daily. This will considerably more than double the present
smelter capacity, so that by January
ist the management expects to produce at least 800,000 pounds of copper per month, at a cost per pound of
not more than S cents.
The company, which is now operating its smelter and mines by steam at
a cost of $140 per horse power per annum, will commence, before long, the
use of electric power, at a cost of $30
per horse power per annum. This saving in power alone will amount to over
one cent per pound of copper produced. - ..

Boundary Mining Notes
Party of J 25 Here on Tuesday Last.
Had Eyes Opened Regarding
About 125 members of the Spokane
Chamber of Commerce, including the
ladies, visited Phoenix Tuesday, .were
entertained by the citizens at lunch at
the Granby hotel, and in spite of the
rain which was steadily fulling, vi-ited
the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 levels of
the Granby mines. That they were
pleased with their reception and
amazed at wl at they saw.in the way of
mining, was the universal expression of
the visitors. The excursion is the
tenth annual trip planned by the Spo-
kanites, this time taking in British Columbia, including Phoenix, Grand
Forks, Nelson, Ainsworth, Kaslo and
A committee consisting of J. P.
Graves, A. B. W. Hodges, Mayor G.
W. Rumberger, J. L. Martin and W.
B. Willcox, met the excursion near
Grand Forks. The party travelled in
a solid Pullman train, one ofthe Great
Northern's best, the cars being labeled
in large streamers. The train was the
heaviest Pullman train ever brought to
Phoenix. When the excursion arrived
in Phoenix, the travellers marched,
headed by the reception committee
through the rain and the town, led by
their Inland Empire Band of twelve
pieces, up to the Granby ho'el, where
Mine Host Macy served a lunch that
was highly praised by the visitors.
Each visitor was presented with a piece
of Granby oie labeled "Phoenix, B.
C", and also a souvenir postal card of
l'hoenix and a copy of the last Holiday Number of the Phoenix Pioneer.
Then the party was formed into
groups and with members of the committee as   guides,   visited  the   several

The auxiliary steam plant for the
Idaho mine of the Dominion Copper
Co. has been enclosed this week.
The Dominion Copper Co. now has
about 300 men working in this camp,
or nearly 400 at its several mines and
J. C. Haas, manager of the Gol-
cond 1 in Deadwood camp, is asking
for tenders for extending the long tunnel on that well known property.
'l'he power question at Cascade
has again become interesting, on account of the low water in Kettle river,
this week's rain helping a little.
Foreman Geo. Cattnach, of the
Carmi, West F'ork was, here Wednesday, looking for men. The property
now has a ten stamp mill, and is being
operated steadily.
A. S. Echert, of Spokane, has taken
a working bond on the Mavis claim,
for $r5,000, with the first payment in
six months. The property adjoins
the Bay,  near Greenwood.
At the Mother Lode mine thousands of tons of ore have been broken
down and taken out, and are now
ready for shipment lo the company's
smelter when the new furnaces are'
blown in.
A force of ten or twelve men is now-
employed at the B. C. mine by the B.
C. Copper Co., and ore is being taken
out of the property, preparatory to beginning shipments to the Greenwood

The coinpanv's Rawhide mine,which
should supply a tonnage, as an engineer who has recently visited the properly reports, "running into the millions," will ship on a more extensive
scale by the time the new furnace is
installed. The cost of mining at the
Rawhide will be very low, or, as expressed by the same engineer quoted
above, not more than "^o cents a ton."
These mining and smelting savings
rpurpuse  of distributing tbe paychecks
for August.
James Moran, the Kettle Valley
rancher and mining man, was a visitor
in the city this week, shaking hands
with old friends. He lives some six
miles below Midway.

The company is in splendid financial
condition, having all its property and
plant p.aid for, and $750,000 in cash
available for the purchase of other
properties, improvements, or any other
It is estimated that for the coming
year, after its smelter enlargement, the
net earnings of the company will be
over $Soo,ooo, which would take care
ot all fixed charges and sinking fund
requirements, and leave a balance of
over 12% for the stock. With its large
amount of cash available for the purchase of additional properties, improvements, etc., the policy of the
company will be to pay dividends as
soon as operations show the same to
be earned. The capitalization of the

unbounded astonishment at the immense caverns and stopes on all sides,
with nothing but shipping ore in sight
in every direction for hundreds of feet.
Another party went into the No. 2
tunnel, and a third was taken in groups
on the trolley observation cars in the
No. 3 tunnel. The C. P. R flat car
special was ready, the two gondolas having been transformed by the
Granby carpenter force into excellent
and safe observation cars. Although
the rain was still falling, many expressed a desire to take the observation
trip, and the train was run around to
the Snowshoe, Gold Drop and Rawhide mines, and then down on the
Brooklyn and Stemwinder spurs.
It was a wet party that embarked
about 4.1 5 for Grand Forks, but one
that was mightily pleased and astonished with what they had seen of the copper mines of the Boundary. David
Ham, as vice-president of the chamber, was the dean of the party, while
Secretary Monroe was also looking after their comfort. 'The full list of visitors was as follows:

G. W. Cornish was granted $100

exnibit at the Nelson and Spokane
fairs. He has a fine collection and
will start Monday for Nelson.
This week the miners raising and
sinking in the new Victoria shaft of the
Granby Consolidated, broke through,
and the shaft is now 200 feet deep. A
start has been made on installing the
machinery for the headworks of this
shaft, although the heavy timbers for the
gallows frame have not yet been received.
The work of installing the rope
drive", fn place-of that for steam, has
been practically completed at the
Mother Lode mine, and in a short
lime all of the machinery .at that property, including hoist, compressor and
crusher, will be operated with electric energy, brought from Bonnington
Falls ..on Kootenay river, some 85
miles distant.
'This week has seen the best payday
ever experienced in Phoenix or the
Boundary country. During the 31
days of August the men in most of
the mines were employed Sundays and
there were no holidays. Besides this
several of the mines have steadily added to ihe forces, notably the Snow-
shoe. In fact, there is no reason why
any man should go without work in
this section. Most of the mines and
smelters paid on the 10th, the Snow-
shoe paying today. In this camp
alone aliout $70,000 was paid out in
wages this week, as follows: Granby,
$42,000; Dominion, $23,000, and
Snowshoe, $5,000. Altogether the
payroll at the several mines and smelters in the Boundary for August, including the railway men, was approximately as follows :
Granby Consolidated  $ 75,000
Dominion Copper Co... . . .       38,000
B  C. Copper Co         35,000
Snowshoe.  5,coo
Smaller mines        22,000
C.P.R. and G.N.'railway men      40,000
Total....    $215,000
This is about $15,000 more than
for the month of July, and there is
every prospect of there being an increase next month and for the balance
of the calendar year.
August Tonnage Increne.
The month of August showed an
appreciable increase in the Bouudary
ore output over the preceding month,
being nearly 10,000 tons heavier, although repairs and enlargements are
still going on at all three ot the dis-
trict reduction works, and the B. C.
Copper Co. has not yet blown in the
first of its new mammoth furnaces.
Following was the tonnage output of
the several Boundary shipping mines
for the month of August, as reported
to the Phoenix Pioneer -.
There are several   cases of typhoid
fever   reported   from   the   Greenwood
Sisters' hospital, most of them coming j
from Midway, Eholt, etc. I

Thus far this year upwards of $2,-  000,600 have been paid out by Kootenay and Yale mines in dividends, with  more to come, probably, before the  year has run its full course. This is  not a large amount, as mining investments go, but when we recall that only  two 01 three years ago not a single  mining corporation in this province  was paying profits to its owners, it is a  fact worthy of note. To the nonresident who has been waiting for a  term of years for some returns from j  his mining investments, this is welcome partment can take lessons from Wash-  news, and it is no less acceptable to''ington, where no cost is too great to  the province at large, as.it means that'g've t,59 people the best possible mail  I poli  1 solid, substantial Commercial publication had the following about the   mail  service in the west :  I At the convention of the Associated  i Boards of Trade in Edmonton, last  [June, one of the topics that came under discussion was the poor mail service some parts of (he west receive.  For a long time many places have been  complaining, but their cries appear to  be of no avail. One of the districts  that suffer most is that in the neigh-  hood of Edmonton. The smaller  towns in that part of Albsrta claim  that it is slmost impossible to get mail  from Edmonton within any reasonable  time, owing, it is said, to the fact that  such mail is not thrown off at stations,  but carried past and transferred to some  distributing office, from where it is re-  forwarded. While in the Alberta capital a short time ago, I sent a letter by  registered mail to Winnipeg the day  before I left there myself, expecting, of  course, it would arnve ahead of me,  but it was delivered to me in Winnipeg  just twenty-four hours after I had  landed here.  It appears to us that it would be  much more to the credit of the government to spend some money in these  western towns in the improvement of  the service, than to be boasting periodically of a surplus fund. The people of Alberta and the other western  provinces appreciate very little a vaunted surplus at Ottawa, when they are  suffering the inconveniences described  in the foregoing.  Presumably there will always be more  or less politics in the conduct of the  postoffice department, which ' may  handicap the powers that have charge,  to some extent. The hardheaded  business men who have looked into  the matter can see no reason why the  department should be conducted, as  the Greenwood Ledge puts it, like 0  "pawnbroker's skinnery"���for that is  about what it amounts to. Perhaps  above all other departments of the  government, postoffice affairs should  be conducted for the greatest convenience of the people���no matter what  the cost���as they come closest to the  people.

This well known property is under bond to the McKinley Mines, Ltd.,  -.a corporation in which F. Aug. 1 ieinze,  the Butte mining magnate, owns the  controlling interest.  The Dominion Copper Co. will soon  increase the force employed at the  Gloucester group, which it bonded  several months ago. As tlie accomodation at the mine is limited, new cabins will !:e erected before winter sets  in. The company recently made the  first payment ol $3,000 on account of  the bond.  Rich galena ore was recently uncovered on the Banner claim, on Banner  mountain, at a point about 409 feet  north of the shaft. Supt. McPhee is  greatly encouraged over the outlook of  this property, which is under bond to  the McKinley Mines, Ltd.  Considerable development work will  be done this fall on the M. S. claim,  located on the northern slope of Banner mountain,and owned by A. Ersk-  ine Smith & Co. of Grand Forks. The  property has 'a phenomenal surface  showing. Copper ore from a small  shaft is said to have yielded assay values of $40 per ton. It is proposed to  employ a force of ten men. The M.  S. is believed to have the same lead as  the Maple Leaf, from which it is less  than one thousand feet distant.

They have passed through their trying  ��� periods, most of them, and from now  on it will be a step forward.  Among   those  concerns   that   have  been distributing dividends wo find the  Le  Koi, Le Roi   No. 2,   Center   Star  and   War   Eagle,   St.   Eugene,   Reco,  Providence,   Crow's   Nest Pa=s   Coal,  Tyee and others���not to mention   the  company which is   beginning   to lead  them all, the Granby.    The  list   does  not include the privately owned mines j  or  the   corporations   in   the   business  which have been profitable producers.  There can be no doubt that money,  talks in the mining business as in any  other.    Given a fair return  for expenditure, and   plenty   of capital   will be  forthcoming for investment;, otherwise,  capital    is    naturally    shy   and   conservative.      Apparently,   we   are    but  starting on o-ir real  period  of m.-ning  activity in this province.    Capital, attracted  by   the   returns being had, is  seeking investment in many directions,  and n   finding    .utlets   to   its   liking.  Some years have been slow in  making  progress in the past, Out henceforward  the tale will  be  one  of  constant  advancement  and  progress���is well as  one of reasonable profit.

Nat Reiss, the Carnival King, who  has the midway at the Spokane Inter  state fair, is spending most of his time  in Spokane preparing for this show,  which he proposes to make the biggest  carnival given this year anywhere in  the West. He is preparing some handsome new fronts which will be the best  he" has ever had, and he has scoured  the country in all directions to get the  best attractions possible. There will  be fun and astonishing features from  one end of the midway to the other.  A 30 foot Cot shows solid galena from end to end. The same  character of ore was recently uncovered at a point 300'feet farther down the  hiil.  This group comprises the Union and  Paper Dollar claims, and the Maple  Leaf fraction. It is owned by Mike  McDonell, Pat McGinnis, Louis John  son and J. C. Henderson, s.11 of Eholt.  The Maple Leaf continues to show  decided 'improvement each succeeding  week and continues to attract many  visitors, all of whom are enthusiastic  over the remarkable showings. Five  open cuts, varying in length from thirty  to ninety feet, are in solid high grade  ore. In one working, for a distance  of twenty-five feet, by actual measurement, the chalcopyrite assays 22 per  cent copper, besides the gold and silver values. The same high-grade ore  has also been uncovered in a deep  open cut along the trend of the ore  zone, 500 feet distant in a northwesterly direction. "A mountain of ore,"  is the verdict of every visitor. The mine  can be worked by tunnels and glory  holes. The Maple Leaf is now in a.  position to ship 300 tons of ore daily.  It will be a great mine long before the  railway reaches here next sunnier.  Sup'.. AI Stewart recently added five  m.ners to the working force. The  group is under bond to Geo. McLeod  find H. W.

David Boyle, of Toronto, the eminent Canadian archaeologist, geologist  and ethnologist, has been visiting his  son, John B. Boyle, for the last two  weeks, it being his first visit to Phoenix or the Boundary country. Although Mr. Boyle has kept himself in  touch with the progress of this district  for years through the medium of the  Pioneer, of which he is a constant  reader, he could not help being agreeably surprised at the evidences of progress and permanence which he noted  on his arrival here.  Mr. Boyle is one of the leading  archeaological authorities in the world,  and has rendered valuable service to  Canada through his researches and the  papers read by him before many of  the most distinguished scientific societies in the world. He is in charge of  the Ontario Archaeological museum in  Toronto. Writing as "Andrew Mc-  Spurtle" Mr. Boyle was for many years  one of the most  popular  Here's a new trick, evolved by the  editor of the Slocan Mining Review,  unless he scissored it Try it anyhow :  Take two silver dollars, hold them  about a foot above a table, and let  them fall sharply. You will hear two  rings. You may keep the jewelry,  but send along the money to us.  A Nelson school teacher who had  boxed a child's ears for some dereliction, leceived the following note from  its indignant mother :  '"Madame : Nature has provided a  place to punish children instead of the  ears, and in future I would thank you  to use the same, and oblige."  In the program to be given by the  Philharmonic Concert Co., of Chicago,  we are going to have a touch of Grand  Opera, when Miss Fanny Ferguson  will sing "Elsas Dream" from Wagner's Lohengrin, perhaps the most  wonderful Aria ever written. This  number i.s especially fitted for this  beautifnl singer, since she does not  only sing the part, but looks it as well.  It was this song that won for Miss  Ferguson the Diamond Medal of the  Chicago Musical College.  6  r*9��r�� oeo *���>.���<-�� �����>���<* �����>������'<���& o-��^�� �����>�����>  I OUR COPPER CORNER j  I  9  �� MATTERS OK   INTEREST   TO   THOSE   INTERESTED  ft COl'I'ER   MIKING   INDUSTRY  IN    THE  That   Poor  Mail  Service  Sam.

Copper share holders will receive  , several million dollars in dividends  during the months of August and September, says the Boston Commercial.  Included in the amounts will be $2,-  680,000 from Amalgamated, $2,000,  000 from Calumet p& Hecla, $800,000  from North Butte, $400,000 each from  Greene    Consolidated,    Granby   and  c^��-<j> o-.��<j oe<* ��l>-o<^ o-a  Transit,   Southern   Pacific,   Colorado  Fuel & Iron and numerous   other railroad and industrial   stocks, which   are  ��� selling in   the New   York market   be-  i tween $40 and $80 per share and pay-  ; ing no  dividends,   with copper stocks  like  Quincy,    Copper    Range,   Utah  Consolidated,   Anaconda,   Green, Mohawk and other coppers   selling in the  Boston market   between   $25 and $75  contributors  to the Scottish American. He is the  author of several authoritative works  on Canadian archaeology.  "My trip is principally for health and  pleasure," said Mr. Boyle. "I may  say, incidentally, that I am ready to  beg, borrow or buy anything that will  be of particular value or interest to  our museum in Toronto, from an Indian legend or relic to an historaical  fact."  "The story of the oboriginal races  on this continent is a fascinating one.  The idea that the Indians are the descendants of a migration, accidental or  otherwise, of people of Tartar or Mongolian race, is I think, only partly true.  The Indians of this continent, as may  be understood' by the difference of  racial characteristics, language, features  and habits, are descended probably  frcm many and divers races. In California, for instance, there are within a  comparatively small area, Indians of  different languages, different habits and  appearance. The Indians of America,  North and South, are not from one  common race. They are the descendants of, it may be, regular migrations  and castaway parties, not only from  Asia but from Europe and Africa. Several Indian races have distinct negro  characteristics."  "Do you find much difficulty in obtaining reliable data from the Indians  themselves ? "  ."We do," said Mr. Boyle. "And  strange to say, it is from the primitive  aboriginal idea of courtesy on the part  of the red man. The Indian, as a rule,  without any intention to deceive, answers questions as they may be leading  ones, or as the questioned thinks the  answer is desired. It is the savage idea  of politeness. It simply is a desire to  please, not deceive. It is a peculiarity  of all aboriginal races and is merely  the same tendency which alTects the,  badinage, compliment and flattery of  the modern drawing room. The unthinking in the old days believed all  Indians liars from this quality, which is  distinctly evident in the politeness of  some of the primitive races that  make up the British race."  While here Mr. Boyle arranged to  secure a collection of ores from a  number of Boundary mines, he, as  superintendent of the government museum at Toronto, taking keen interest  not only in relics of all kinds, but in  minerals. This permanent collection  will be of no little interest in Toronto,  where it will be a source of information to thousands who at present know  very little of the resources of this  province.  e *  Phoenix Livery Stable  j D.

A new insurance company,   to   be  called the Monarch, is being organized,  with headquarters in Winnipeg, and of  which P. Bums is one of the directors.  If Pat is as  successful with  insurance  as he is in dealing out  meats to the  populace of Alberta, British Columbia  and   the   Yukon,   and   can   keep the  frenzied  financiers  from getting their  clutches on the cash of the company,  the Monarch should become a popular  concern.  ���������  There i.s one man in Phoenix who  has been knocking hard this week, and,  strange to say, everyone commends him  for doing it. Narcisse Lemieux���  cousin of the Honourable Rodlophe  Lemieux, postmaster-general, who is  trying to run his department on the  money making plan at the expense of  the sevice in the west���an employee of  the corporation ol the city of Phoenix,  has been out wilh his little hammer  all over town, driving down the nails  that occasionally stick up in the corporation's sidewalks.  ���*t  If the C. P. R. can invent and  build a car which can be used for general merchandise, coal, coke and even  ore, to advantage, it will be a feather  in the cap of the officers of the corporation which cleaned up a matter of  $22,000,000 during its last fiscal year,  and expects to clean up some $6,00c,-  000 during this month of September.  Plans are now being worked out, it is  understood, for this new type  of car.  tw  The disasters that happened to three  delinquent subsribers :  One of them said : ���'! will pay on  Saturday night if I live."

Perhaps  they'll sing a different tune a year  hence, with a Dominion election in  sight.  R. T. Lowery, owner of the defunct  l.owery's Claim and of the very much  alive Greenwood Ledge, was a caller  at the Pioneer office last Saturday.  The genial and energetic colonel, who  has been successful in securing more  advertising than any other newspaper  man in the province (he i.s a firm believer in the power of printers' ink,  and he has started no less th.in :2).  will hereafter devote his energies tu  his Greenwood paper, and it is a safe  assertion that be will nmke himcelf  felt there. For the present, at least,  he will not take in sunny California.  ���I*  The Greenwood Times announces  that it is ten years of age, and is now  starting in on its second decade of usefulness. The Times was started when  it was necessary to haul the plant over  rough roads some <So miles from Penticton, and ever since that time Duncan Ross, M. P., has been the guiding  spirit ol the paper. Six years ago  Duncan got the daily bee in his bonnet, and published the Times as such  for six months, but after becoming separated from several thousand dollars in  the attempt, he wisely gave it up. The  Times has always b'-en a staunch believer in the great future of the Houndary.     Here's good luck to it.  Considers Pe-ru-na the Best Medicine  In the "World,  Mrs. W. J. Bryanton, 210 Sherman  street, Dennlson, Ohio, writes:  "I followed the directions yon. kindly  gave nu- and now I find myself entlrely  cured. I think your Peruna is tho best  medicine in the world."  Heartfelt Thanks For Eolief Found  in Pe-ru--na.  Mies Jessie S. Dword, 37 South street,  Passaic, X. J., writes:  "1 took Peruna aa you directed. I  had a dry cough and after using two  bottles of Poruna, 1 found relief. You  have my heartfelt thanks."  A cough is caused by a catarrhal condition of the throat and bronchial tribes.  Remove the catarrh and tho cough disappears. Peruna is the remedy for all  Mtwrbal conditions.  Permanent Benefit Followed Use of  Pe-ru-na.  Miss May Cray, 14711th street,Brooklyn, N. Y., writes:  "For moro than five years I Buffered  from rheumatic pains in my Joints, and  in damp or stormy weather I was  obliged to stay in doors.  "Medicine seemed to be of no nee until I started using Poruna.  "I took twelvo bottles in all, although  it is six months ago since I stopped.  "1 have had no return of my old complaint, in spite of the fact that I have  been out in all sorts of weather daring  the severe winter."  No better remedy was ever devised  by tho medical profession for the  mitigation of all climatic ailments than  Peruna.  Pe-ru-na Used For Throat Trouble  Keeps the Remedy at Hand.  Mrs. J. A. Baker, 880 Locust avenue,  Amsterdam, N. Y., writes:  "I feel it my duty to write and tell  you what Peruna has done for me, so  that all those who are troubled aa Iww  may find the same speedy euro.  "Pour years ago I lost my voice, so  that I was unable to speak above a  whisper for seven weeks. Our family  doctor could do nothing for me.  "After seven weeks suffering, I read  some circulars in regard to Peruna.  "1 bought a bottle at once and took It  In teaspoonfol doses every hour, and ia  two days I could talk. I will never ba  without it."  .For free medical advice, write to Dr.  S, B, Hartman, President of The Hartman Sanitarium, Columbus, Ohio.  Coming Events.
