NOMINATED MACNEILL, OF ROSSLAND.  Result  of The  Conservative Convention ct  Kevelstcike,  At the conservative convention  which was held at Revclstoke last Saturday," "great-"eTitliusiasn'V' prevailed.  Seventy delegates were- present all  classes being represented. A. H. Mac-  Neill was the unanimous choice.  One hundred and ten delegates were  represented in person or by proxy. C.  A. Semlin was chosen chairman.  Among others there were present John  Houston, R. F. Green, T. Taylor,  Price Ellison, M. P. P.'s and J. A.  Mara and F. C. Carter-Cotton. A.  H. MacNeili of Rossland, after receiving the unanimous nomination, asked  for two hours to consider his decision.  The convention assembled at 8 o'clock  to receive MacNeill's decision. On A.  H. MacNeill's acceptance,' rousing  speeches were made by F. C. Carter-  Cotton, A. W. Ross, J. A. McKelvie,  editor of the Vernon News, J. M. ���Robinson of Peachland, formerly of Rossland, C. A.

The following platform was adopted: ,  We, the delegates of the liberal-  conservative party of Yale-Cariboo'  constituency in.convention' assembled,  re-affirm the principles of the old party,  and more particularly that i cardinal  principle, protection to home industries,  and that that principle be carried out  so that all sections of the, country shall  equally share its benefits.  The one industry on which the  prosperity of this constituency is almost  wholly'dependent is mining;, and we  believe that our mining industries are  as fairly entitled to protection as the  manufacturing interests of Eastern  Canada; therefore, we advocate that  the duties on iead and lead products  be increased, so that they shall be as  ,high as those now 'imposed by the  United States- on the same articles.  That the outpu; of the precious  metal mines of Canada, is largely increasing, therefore we favor the establishment of a mint, so that the specie  in circulation -.shall be that oi-oiir own  instead of that of a foreign country.  We advocate the restriction of the  immigration of Chinese and Japanese  and all classes of people who cannot  become good citizens of the Dominion  of Canada, and suggest the adoption  ot the principles of the Natal act.  British Columbia has not now the  representation i.s the federal parliament  that she is entitled to; therefore we advocate that when the redistribution of  scats i.s made that this constituency  shall be given representation according  to its population.  That it augurs well for the success  of the party that. Hugh John Mac-  donald lias decided to leave the field  of provincial politics to take part in  the larger one that affects the people of  the whole of Canada.  15 OR 20 MILLIONS  Consolidation   of  the   Miner-  Graves Properties.  THAT ARE LOCATED HERE IN PHOENIX  Announced by Mr, Miner in the Easf���Will  Include Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, Granby  and drey Eagle Companies.  Albert II. MacNeili.  Mr. A. H. MacNeili, the conservative candidate in the Yale-Kootenay-  Cariboo district, was born at Belfast,  P. E. I, October 15, 1JS65, and about  seven years later his parents moved  to Charlottetown, P. K. I., where he  resided until he moved to British Columbia in 1890. He was a graduate  of the law school of Dalhousie University, Halifax, took the degree of 1.. L.  1)., in 1S89, and after practicing a  year in Charlottetown, he took up his  residence in Vancouver. B. C. In  July 1S96, he went to Rossland and  formed the law firm of MacNeili and  1 >eacon.  The new 10-drill compressor for the  Knob Hill mine, is expected to bej  started up in three or four days. A  force of mechanics has been at work  for nearly two weeks in assembling the  big machine, and the work is well on  towards completion. This will give  the Miner-Craves syndicate 20 air  drills for their properties in this camp.

As the first immediate result of the  successful inauguration of smelting at  the Granby smelter, it is given but that  the different-enterprises'..controlled by  by the Miner-Graves syndicate in  Phoenix camp, including the smelter  at Grand Forks, will shortly be consolidated into one gigantic corporation,  with a capital of $15,000,000 or $20,-  060,000.  The following, dispatch from Montreal is' the result of an interview with  the president of the various companies  referred to:  Will Build a Refinery.  Montreal, September 14.���S. H. C.  Miner, president of .the Miner-Graves  syndicate of mining and smelting properties, has arrived home from;the west  and made some highly important-announcements.' Within the next six  months the Knob Hill, Old Ironsides,  the Grey Eagle and the Granby Consolidated will be consolidated into one  company, w;ith a capital of fifteen or  twenty million dollars.  The next is that following this consolidation, steps will be taken to build  a refinery at or near Grand Forks,  which will save at least. 4^ cents in  every pound of copper smelted. The  capital required will be about $ 1,000,-  000, and it will probably start within  18 months. .  Mr. Miner says that although their  furnace, which was started the other  day, was only calculated to smelt 250  tons a day, the capacity i.s now 300  tons, and when the second furnace  starts next week the daily capacity of  the Granby will be hot less than 600  tons. Four additional furnaces will be  erected very soon, for the proposed  consolidation will easily supply_2ooo  tons of ore daily. ?'  - r-r/" ~-;   -;'���  ,;  ''What is the value of the ore you  are now, treating?" Mr., Miner was  asked. - .���':...;.������.. 7  "lamnotat liberty to answer that  question; being in the position of a  business man who does not care to  publish his daily profits to the world.  1 may say, however, that when ore  reports are published they will be found  eminently satisfactory to our shareholders! We. are not-sorting the Ore,  and there i.s a good profit out of every  too that is going through the smelter.  I will go further and say that we have  been successful in demonstrating the  fact that ore as low as $5 can be treated at a profit."  The following is taken from a recent  issue of the Montreal Star, after an interview with Mr. Miner.  "It is estimated that the construction  and equipment of a refinery would cost  about $1,000,000. Mr; Miner says  that all the mine owners in the Boundary held their breath awaiting the  starting of the Granby smelter, but  they are now more than satisfied. The  company is now connecting the mines  and smelter by a private telephone  wire, and in a comparatively short  time the mines in question will be supplied with all the operating power they  may require from the Grand Forks  electrical works, and that steam .will  be superseded completely.  "Mr. Miner states that the operation  has proved a fjrand success, and that  it works as smoothly as if it had been  going on for ten years. He said that  they were not sorting the ore now being put through, and that there was a  good profit in every ton going through  the smelter."  Inquiry at the office of the several  companies in Phoenix, elicited the  statement that the consolidation was  understood to be under way in the  east, but no further particulars were  obtainable here.  PHOENIX WINS AT TENNIS.  But Saturday's Match Was Stopped by Rain-  Play at Greenwood Today.  Last Saturday five members of the  Greenwood Tennis Club came up the  hill to. try. conclusions with the racket  wielders of !">*>enix. The genelemen  from Greenwood were Messrs. Coulter,  Robertson, Duff, '-Appleby and Stowe.  The Phoenix players selected were  Messrs. Boucher,. Smith, Spier, Clark  aad Buckton.  But two sets Were played, both resulting in victory for the Phoenix club,  with scores of 6���-1 and 6���2. 'Boucher  and Smith played against Coulter and  Robertson. At this point rain pre  vented further playing.  -In the'evening the Phoenix club  tendered a dinner to the visiting  players at the Imperial hotel. There  were :8 covers laid and a feast of reason and flow of soul prevailed till a  late hour.  By arrangement the Phoenix players  will go to Greenwood today to play return games.

AT BELLEVUE HOTEL LAST SUNDAY  Was a Miner Employed at the Knob Mill And  Was Carried Off By Heart Disease-Native  C( Wales.  Are Larger Than The Recently Discovered Ore  Bodies In The Famous LeRoi.  A subscriber, writing to the Rossland  Miner from Phoenix recently, says:  "I note in a recent issue of your  valuable paper a reference to the slopes,  in the Le Roi being large enough to  play base ball in. I think that is true,  and do not doubt it, but we have  mines here that make a stOpe of that  size pale into insignificance: Here  they are large enough to play, lacrosse in.  1 have frequently visit ,'d the workings of  the Knob Hill, and. perhaps a brief  description will please your readers.  The main tunnel is about 1,300 feet  long, and for over 100 feet this runs  through solid ore, while the greatest  depth obtained is perhaps 225 feet.  The ore body is cut by crosscut tunnels  at intervals of 200 feet for a width of  400 feet. Thus a distance of 1,000  feetby'400-feet-in' wiiMi the bra- body-  is opened up. There is stoping ground  above for say an average of 100 feet.  The figures will give your readers an  idea of the magnitude of this immense  property. 'There are now three stopes  being opened in this property, in any  one of which ten machine drills abreast  could be worked in a face of solid ore.  So much for the underground condition of affairs.  "On the surface there is a huge body  of solid copper and magnetic iron ore,  an ideal ore for fluxing, which i.s being  quarried out and shipped to the smelter. Four hand drillers and six muckers produce So tons per day from this  source. This mine on the installation  of machinery can ship an almost unlimited quantity, ana even with the  present limited facilities the mine is  producing from 100 to 200 tons per  day.  "The old Ironsides is apparently  quite as good a mine as the Knob Hill,  and there are a number of others of  great merit surrounding this camp. It  needs no prophet to predict for Phoenix as great a future as is now guaranteed Rossland."  Last Sunday morning David Pritchard, who had been boarding at the  Bellcvue hotel on Knob Hill avenue,  did not respond when called by the  hotel people. On examination it was  found that the man was dead in ,bed.  An examination by Dr. Boucher showed that he had passed away from  natural causes���heart disease-���and no  inquest- was deemed .necessary. Although deceased was not a member of  Phoenix, .Miners'Union, he f had been  in good standing in 'the ..'Greenwood  Union, and the local organization took  charge of the funeral. It-was held  Monday, interment being in Greenwood  cemetary.  Pritchard was a miner who had formerly been employed 7 in the'."Coeu'r.  D'Alenes, and had been, in the employ of the Knob Hill ��(4ld Mining Co. in Phoenix but a short  time. He was a single man of. about  34 years, and was a native of Wales.  He had been complaining some for.' a.  lew days before lie died, but did not  h-se any time at the mine.  AllNER-GRAVES PRIVATE WIRE.  Was Completed to Phoenix Thursday by the  V. &'N.Tel. Co. ' ���';,.  Thursday evening District Manager  Hodge, with Foreman Irwin', arrived  in town with a force of ten telephone  men, seven.of whom were climbers.  They had just completed-stringing the  private wire for the use of the Miner-  Graves syndicate, from Grand Forks  to Phoenix, connecting the big mines  here with the Granby smelter at'Grand  Forks.  The men made recordbrcaking time  on the work, having strung 30 miles  of wire in. just7six days; and at"'the  same time put on 6-pin crpssarms to  the poles. A branch line has also  been run to the City of Paris mine,- in  White's camp.  Yesterday the force continued the  additional metallic circuit to Greenwood, the increase of business between  Phoenix and Greenwood now requiring  another wire. ._        --   ,  Monday the gang goes to Nelson,  where a new 600 drop switchboard is  to be installed, the office moved, and  the lines generally improved.  WORKING ON SMELTER SITE.  IN THE LOCAL FIELD.  camp,  2,000  Shin-  Shipping 2000 Tons Monthly.  The B. C. Mine, in Summit  during August shipped about  tons of .ore to the Trail smelter,  nients are now proceeding at the rate  of four to six cars daily, averaging 25  tons each. A couple of cars were recently sent to the Granby smelter.  The payroll to the B. C. mine is now  the largest in its history, there being  over 90 men on the property.  Was Hurt ot the B. C.  Wednesday morning a miner named  Brathwait, fell down some 35 feet in a  stope in the B. C Mine, and received  several scalp wounds. He was taken  to the Greenwood hospital, and is now  rapidly recovering, jso bones were  broken and there were no contusions.  Brathwait is a member of Phoenix  Miners' Union No. S.  Shipments from the Old Ironsides,  Knob Hill and Victoria mines keep up  the steady average of 300 tons daily.  It should be 600 tons before another  week is eone.  Wm. Snyder, representing G. L.

Troup, superintendent i  Clearing Land for Reduction Works at Boca-  dary Falls.  A force of men is now busily engaged in clearing the land for ihe buildings of the Standard Pyritic Smelter  company at Boundary Falls. Some  20 acres will be cleared. The work is  in charge of Sam Young, who comes  from the Northport smelter. Andrew  Laidlaw, the managing director of the  company, expects the plans for tho  buildings to arrive in the course of the  next week. They are being prepared  in Denver. A practical smelterman  will also be sent up from Denver to  superintend the construction of tho  buildings and the installation of tho  machinery. The pyritic smelter will  have a guaranteed capacity of 200 tons  daily, the machinery being built by  the Denver Engineeering Works com-'  pany.  The building of a smelter at thin  point will undoubtedly stimulate interest in the townsite. Already many  people have been looking over the;  ground with a view to getting in on  the ground floor.

C  <!00D ROADS FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA;  The   Inland  Board  of Trade,   of  Kamloops,, , has   taken  the  initiative  towards the general betterment of the  roads of the province by issuing a call  for a convention,  to be held  in that  city Thursday,  September  27th, (,'for  the purpose of forming a  Provincial  iloixl Roads Association.    Boards of  Trade   throughout   the province are  o    earnestly  requested  to send delegates  to this  meeting, and it is hoped they  will not fail to do so.  The objects of the proposed association are manifest from the title, but  these objects are set out at greater  length in another column of this issue  of the Pioneer. That they are highly  commendable, goes without saying.  Similar associations have been formed  in other provinces and in some of; the  Mates, and have almost universally  , been of the greatest practical benefit  to their respective locations.  One difficulty heretofore experienced  liy the mining districts in securing the  construction of even passable wagon  roads by the government,  has been to  jnakc the members of the government  - realize   the   necessity therefor.'   The  liulk of population and trade has heretofore been at the coast,  where good  ,   roads  prevail   and  were easily   and  . cheaply constructed. ���' In this mining  section the population was not so dense  and construction was expensive;   consequently, the government was at first  exceedingly slow to act on requests of  ., this nature. ���  --' Such a praised association will  , serve not only to enlighten the government on actual conditions and needs,  but will educate the people themsefves  in many e.vcel lent ways,' on this im  Jiortant subject.  Nearly $8,000 was/appropriated by  the late legislative assembly for public  works in and around Phoenix. Nothing lias yet been done.

This  would mean that Phoenix Would at  once take rank as the leading mining  camp in British Columbia. But then,  such is its destiny, in any event.  The Greenwood Board of Trade is  doing well to advertise that town in the  Rossland Miner, but when it seeks to  convey the information that Phoenix,  Long Lake, Summit, Central, Wellington and a few other camps are tributary  to that town, it is decidedly misleading. .Phoenix is the nearest banking  and ^-business point today to more  steadily shipping mines than any other  town in the Boundary.

For several months   past   geneial  business has been dull throughout the  boundary country. While considerable  development of our rich mineral Kdc-  4 posits was still being conducted, quite  ,t number of projierties had temporarily  t'    susjiended ojierations.    The attention  flf investors had been attracted during  ��� railway construction, and the business  v*nen  followed   the investors closely.  Every town had a more or less evanes-  ��� xrent-boom.    Some ot this growth was  warranted, but much of it was  not.  ' Money was plenty everywhere and the  ��� whole country was growing fast.  .-Then   came the   reaction  in  the  ���spring and summer'just  past.    The  prevailing quietude was attributed  to  ' ".various causes.���this war or that,  and  ��� fl few other things.    At any rate, dull  iimes prevailed.    As a matter of fact,  million's had  been ��� poured in here in  jnining investments'and not a cent had  been  taken out.    It is said that ten  millions in cash came from the city of  Montreal   alone,   and  was put into  mines.  Now, however, we are on the eve of  .a change.   The wave is turning.    It  ��� w^s natural that capitalists, after a time,  should desire to see some return  for  , the large sums of .money put into the  ground before investing further.   They  poxr note that theGianby smelter is a  success, and lias already demonstrated  that ore \vortft $5 per ton could be  ���mined and smelted at a profit.    This  satisfies them and they are just beginning to look  around for more good  ' investments���which; can yet be had.  ���The representatives'bf capital are com-  jng into the Boundary every week, and  more will come this fall.   Another significant thing is that they never pass  Phoenix by,   no matter  what  oth^t]  canjps they fail-to visit.  - '^l'ljis winter should see good times  jjj''Jfiipgw.    With the output that is  ^already 'guaranteed, and the development promised,   this will not only  be  (he largest and most talked-of camp in  The terrible catastiophe in Texas;  by which the populous and prosperous  city of Gaivcston was practically wiped  out of existence and thousands, oflives  weie lost, is only equalled in history  by trie destruction of Pompeii by the  outbreak of Mount Vesuvius. The  money loss runs up into many millions.  It is ho wonder that the world stands  aghast at the frightful work of wind and  wave, and generously rushes to the aid  of the stricken Te.\ans.

C  PHOENIX ANOTHER BUTTE  Is Already the Second C^amp 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 of business like  exploitation.  Phoenix itself and the camps to which it is the nearest banking and business  point, are now shipping 3/500 tons of gold-copper ore per week, or 152,500 tons  per year.  The Knob Hill and Old Ironsides, situated in the very heart of the town, are  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, Athelstau, etc., are  shipping not less than 50 tons per da}', 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 only in its earliest infancy.
