 f rt,. rtv  ��   I  *1  $t0'  W^.  '���'���'��&'  ifcf'  \  ion  Eleventh Year  PHOENIX,  B.C.,  SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER 10,   1910  MINES NOW ACTIVE  Shipping List of Mines Increasing  Since the last issue of the  Phoenix Pioneer the total ore shipments  from   Boundary   mines   passed   the  million-ton mark and mining- in the  district has been considerably .active.  As a result of the fire one  of the  shipping outlets of the Granby mine  was temporarily put out of commission,   the  No.   3  tunnel.     This was  overcome,   however, by having" the  ore   tonnages   from   this   point   reverted   to   the   Victoria   shaft, until  new shipping- facilities are  installed  at   No.   3.     In   the  meantime    the  present method enables the Granby  to ship the reg-ular tonnage.     It has  . been  decided,   however,   to   curtail  the output until an  improvement in  the copper metal  market, and. only  four   of  the   eight  furnaces at the  smelter are being operated.  The    Rawhide   mine   has    commenced   shipments   to   the   British  Columbia   Copper smelter  and  the  Consolidated company's No.   7 and  Phoenix Amalgamated will probably  enter the regular shipping  list   next  month.     \    '      .--'."'���  ;.;;��j;The .,British. /Columbia    Copper  company's .smelter   is   again    commencing to operate at full  capacity,  .   the newly enlarged furnace being in  commission.     It is handling regular  shipments  from   its   Mother " Lode,  Oro Denoro and Jackpot mines and  will   now   treat   the   ores  from  the  Rawhide.  Following are the returns of the  output of the mines and smelters of  the Boundary district for the week  ending Sept. 10 and for the year to  date:  An Explanation  The fire which recently wiped out a section of the city of Phoenix, and is referred to at length elsewhere in this issue, destroyed  the entire plant, subscription list, etc., of the Phoenix Pioneer. The  editor and proprietor was in eastern Canada at the time which, with  the slow transit of the new plant, accounts for the delay in resumption of publication by the Pioneer. This first issue reaches its  readers somewhat later than had been intended, but we will be  caught up in a few days and will again give the public all the live  news of the copper metropolis and district regularly each week.  RAWHIDE SHIPS ORE  I  To Subscribers  As the subscription list of the Phoenix Pioneer was burned we  have been unable to obtain the names and addresses of a large number of those who received the Pioneer heretofore; man}' hundreds  were paid in advance, hundreds were in arrears. We would therefore ask that all former subscribers send to the Pioneer office their  correct addresses and the dates to which their subscriptions are paid.  The net personal loss to the publisher of the Pioneer through the  fire cannot be estimated at less than $3,000, and while we are making an effort to resume publication and give the city and district a  good newspaper, we have to admit that our finances are limited. It  requires cash to start and keep the wheels of a newspaper in motion  and we greatly appreciate the generous support of our advertising  patrons at this time. From those who are in arrears for subscription,  a check would be particularly welcome, while the price of subscription from a new subscriber would be likewise gratefully received.

Graqes of Spokane, vice-  president and general manager of  the Granby company, visited the  company's properties here yesterday.  He spent two days making an inspection of the mine and smelter for  the purpose of acquainting himself  with conditions prior to leaving for  New York, where he will make a  detailed report at the annual meeting of shareholders, which takes  place at the branch office of the  company, 52 Broadway, New York,  on Tuesday, Oct. 4 next.  No better evidence of the confidence which the management of  the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and Power company repose in their big Phoenix copper  producer is required than the structures now being-built, and the equipment installed, after ten years '��� of  operations, to replace what was recently destroyed by fire. The new  work will not only fully replace the  part of the plant destroyed, but will  be more complete and up-to-date in  every particular, and is being built  with the stamp of permanency which  cannot fail to command the attention of not only those interested,  but of the casual observer as well.  Steel, brick and concrete are the  materials of which the new buildings  are being constructed, and it requires no optimist to recognize that  these are not being built for temporary usefulness.  The Granby company has never  received the support to which it has  been entitled from the financial  world. Although receiving scant  encouragement, it was launched on  a sound financial basis, its property  developed under a sane policy, its  affairs conducted by men with the  capacity for doing things, and has  grown to such proportions as to  force recognition as a factor in the  copper world. That the enterprise  has been a success no further eulogy  is required  than   the past   record of  the Granby.  The management of the Granby  received considerable criticism recently for allowing its shares to take  a tumble on the stock market, without making an effort to stay the  slide. That these criticisms were  allowed to go without notice is due  to the fact that the management of  the big mine considers the Granby  in the copper mining industry and  not concerned in stock market fluctuations. It is a fact, however,  that �� the large shareholders of the  company's stock neither sold nor  bought since the decline, but added  heavily to their holdings when the  recent block of shares were offered  at $85. At the annual meeting of  the company next month the officials  will make public complete detailed  reports of the property and its operations.  Commences    Daily   Shipments Sept. 20  The Rawhide mine commenced  shipping ore this week to the British  Columbia Copper company's smelter  at Greenwood. Twelve cars have  been shipped, although the name  does not appear on the shipping list  by reason of the tonnage returns not  having , been received. A similar  shipment will be made in a day or  two, and after the 20th inst. the  Rawhide will make regular daily  shipments.  The last shipments from this  property were made two years ago  this month to the Boundary Falls  smelter when owned by the former  Dominion Copper company. In  May, 1909, the holdings of this  company were purchased by the  New Dominion Copper company,  and early this year a controlling interest in the latter company was acquired by the British Columbia  Copper company.  Some months ago the British Columbia . company assumed active  management of the New Dominion  properties. Some 4000 feet of exploratory work ''^_with^^tfiS'r!'dlamori'd���'';  drill was done at the Rawhide in the  winter, and latterly a force of 75  men have been carrying on active  machine development work. A new  machine shop was built and general  surface improvements made. It  had been intended to ihstal a.  crusher at the mine, but as the ores  will require to be sampled it has  been   decided   to  put  the  Rawhide  ores  through  the sampling crusher  at the smelter.  Harry Johns, superintendent of  the B.C. Copper company's Wellington camp properties, is in charge  of operations at the Rawhide and  expects to be employing 150 men  shortly.  insurance practically covers ^he entire loss.  The transformer station, \Which  supplies power for the tram system,  is being rebuilt of brick and' concrete with metallic covering, and is  now about   completed; a   fire   proof  car repair shop has been completed,  While  the   Granby   management   and the concrete foundation   is  laid  refused to get  under   the   declining  for a   brick   machine   shop.     These  shares, the new work which is now ; are being located conveniently, and  under way at the property should at will be both substantial and attrac-  least somewhat throttle the Granby ; tive.

parts of the city as far as the  Cath-
die church and the geheraj hospital.
,  That" the entire city^was not wiped
out is regarded as a miracle; certain
. itf is that siich' as prospect  appeared
inevitable at times and every householder in the city was  making; preparations to  vacate with as much
personal   effects  as  possible.    But
the credit for saving the, city was
widespread; hundreds of firefighters
worked * heroically,   but   not   least
among these were the property owners who climbed on the roof with
buckets of waiter and  protected his
own.    The   strenuous fights  of the
fire departments were in saving the
Old   Ironsides   hotel   and   Black's
jewelry, store;  had either of these
buildings got a start the city would
have been doomed, while an equally
brilliant    fight    accounts    for    the
Miners' Union hall escaping with a
slight scorching.    The fire  fighters
worked under the disadvantage of
poor water pressure, which resulted
from practically every tap in the city
being  open.     One  thing favorable
to preventing the spread of the fire
was the fact that one shift of miners
i'r'   l\      )

was just going to work and another
shift coming off at the time, and a
force of a couple of' hundred men
were on the scene' with Granby's
special lines of hose in but' a few
seconds from the time the fire was
first discovered. .
The fire occasioned a property
loss of,$l 15,000, the Granby losing
about $90,000 on which they carried
$70,000 insurance. .Other losses,
amounted to $25,000, upon which
there is $12,000 insurance.
Mining Interrupted
The destruction of the generator
plant, which supplies power for all
the underground' tram lines of the
Granby, was^ a serious- matter' for
both the company and'the'workmen,
operations at the mine, except at the<
Curlew, outlet, having to be suspended. In this way the shipments'
fell and made it necessary to reduce
the'battery of operating furnaces at
the. smelter to four.  .    ■'* »

The Nelson Faiir  , r  The Prize List of the 8tjp. Annual  Nelson Fruit Fair is just to hand,  and is well worth perusing, the  book itself in appearance is handsome and reflects great credit upon  the promotors of the Fair, or whoever is responsible for the work, as  we have no hesitation in saying we  have never seen a better production  of its kind in the Dominion. On  looking over the different sections  we.notice a large increase in the  prizes as offered in previous, years,  especially is this noticeable in the  Fruit section, which will no doubt  have the effect of bringing out a  grand display, the prizes in the District Exhibit have been doubled, the  first prize beingj.the Johnstone Cup  and $100 cash) the; second prize  $50 cash, in addition to these prizes  each district competing is. allowed  $50 for expenses and freight charges  to Nelson. The competition in this  Exhibit promises to be keenly contested, as ; we ' understand that already ho less than five out of the  eight districts have entered.  Prize Lists may be obtained upon  application to the secretary, ��� jE. Q>*  Box 392, Nelson, B.C.  ..���(.  irifi  Is McBride the Coming Leader?  A unique, interest attaches to the  September number of Busy Man's  Magazine, because in it' is to be  found a striking prophesy about the  future of the Hon. Richard McBride,  Premier of British Columbia, based  on the extraordinary lik%ness he  bears to three great polical leaders.  These three men are Benjamin Disraeli, Sir John A. McDonald and  Sir Wilfrid Laurier. This striking  likeness is brought out clearly in the  portraits of the four men which illustrate the ��� article, and which are  placed together for puposes of comparison, Richard McBride is still a  young man, but even today he bears  a marked resemblance to all three  men referred,to, and in his mannerisms he is astonishingly like Sir  John A. Macdonald. All interested  in the political situation in Canada,  Conservative and Liberal alike,  should not fail to see this convincing prophecy,   : -*.   Labor Day Marathon  Joe Madore of Phoenix won the-  marathon race, Grand Forks to  Christena Lake, and a $50 purse on  Sept. 5th. He covered the distance  of 16j4 miles in a hour and 53 minutes, finishing fresh and strong.  Madore took cramps when about  half the distance was covered, but  pluckily kept his nerve and overcome it; he was also handicapped in  not knowing the road and had to  stop and make enquiries at different  places. There were four contestants but Madore's chief opponent  was a man named Johnson. Johnson won the 26-mile marathon in  Stockholm, Sweden, last year, and  can outdistance any person in the  country for five miles, according to  Madore. Rooney of Grand Forks  followed the racers on a bicycle.  Aeroplane Flights for Fair  The Spokane Interstate Fair will  make another big bid for by far the  largest attendance in its   history by  offering its patrons spectacular daily  Aeroplane flights the week of October 3  to 9  next, by J. C. Mars,  one of the world's greatest aviators.  The   Fair -management    has    just  closed a contract with the Glenn H.  Curtiss    Aeroplane    Company,    of  Hammondsport, N.Y., for the most  sensational flying machine exhibition  yet seen  in  the Northwest.     Mars  may be depended on to  give  spectators   everything   in    the   line   of  thrills that goes with aviation meets.  Beginning   life   as   a   newsboy   in  Chicago's streets, he became a professional balloonist and high  diver.  For the last ten years  he  has been  in the government balloon service as  an aide, to   Captain   Baldwin.     He  already has annexed several world's  records.     Mars will be  seen  at-the  Minnesota State Fair in  September  in company with Glenn   H.   Curtiss  and   Wilburn    Wright,    who   have  been persuaded to meet  each  other  for the championship;of the   air  for  the} first   time   oil    that   occasion.  After the Minnesota Fair, Mars will  come on to  Spokane   and   become  conditioned   to   the    Fair   aviation  field.     He will be seen at the Interstate Fair in an Aeroplane built expressly for his use  and to be used  for the first time at- the Minnesota  Fair.

There are times even  in business life when a $2 bill will  do more for a person than a 6ve-  spot will accomplish when the cash  drawer is full, and the Pioneer is  now in a position to appreciate this.  . /The Moyie Leader claims the  present method of placing the game  laws before the public is a failure.  Very few ever see the posted notices  and additional regulations frequent-'  ly ' conflict with those posted. It  makes a good suggestion that  notices be posted each month and  printed in the newspapers of the .districts effected as well. In this way  hunters would know at a glance the  game in season and that protected  at different periods.  It may be alleviating to those interested in the copper industry to  know' that the returns for August  reflects a considerable improvement  in the. red metal market.
