Much Pleased With Year'* Operations of  Ilia Company at Phoenix and Orand  Forks.  Thursday afternoon S. H.C. Miner,  president of the Gianhy  Co.,   Jay  P,  Graves, general manager,  and   Alfied  C. Flumerfelt   assistant geneial man  ager,  rame up on the ore train from  Grand   Forks.    It   was   Mr.  Minei's  annual visit to the mines in which   he  is so largely interested, his  last trip to  Phoenix being made about a year ago  In conversation  with a lepresenia  live of the   Pioneer,   Mi. Miner  ex-  piessed himsell as greatly pleased with  the work that had been done  at  both  the mines and the company's smelter  in the last twelve months.    He stated  that while they h.idabeady gotten the  cost of treating ore down to what'was  believed 10 be a low figuie���generally  believed  on   the outside to be $1.90  per ton���.vithin six months they would  ssill further reduce the cost at le,ast 25  per   cent.     It was the  aim to  treat  Phoenix oies as  cheap if not'eheaper  than   similar  Work  could   be done at  any existing smelter.  During the last year the wjiTcs and  mines had been visited by a nunibe.  ol eminent metallurgists, like'Di. I.e-  Doux, of New Yoik, and Dr. Poitei,  of Montreal, and it was well known  that these gentlemen, as a rule, did not  talk fo'r publication. Nevertheless,  they had both taken pains to com  mend what they had seen ol the woik  being done by the Gianhy Co al  Giand Forks and Phoenix. Coming  from such a source the opinions of  course carried no little weight.  Asked in regard to the enlargements  going 011 and proposed at' the smelter,  >M.r. ~ Miner ^.stated, that tkt company-  had   been unloi'tunate in   having the  two furnaces oideied   destioyed in a  fire  in   the factory  of the makeis in  Milwaukee,  and  that  the steel stiike  was now delaying the installation.    Il  they   weie on   hand the enlargement  would be complete in  30  days.    He  expected that the company would keep  right 'in enlarging the capacity of the  smelter until it wajjat least capable bl  handling  2,000 . tons . of Phoenix ore  per  day,   but   he  did not care to say  much about this until the present  en;  largements were completed.    For the  present nothing would be done about  consolidating    the    other   properties  owned   by  the syndicate���in White's  camp, Rossland  and   the Slocan���pf  which   something  has been   said  recently, but when the Granby  enlargements 'and���'���improvements at   Grand  Folks and Phoenix were all completed,  then the other properties would   probably havi attention. -';���'���������;.���    './  "How about the 100 cotiages which  your   company   intends   to  build in  Phoeiiix, for employees, Mr. Miner?"  the Pioneer man asked.  "We are going to build them just as  soon aswe can get around to. it," he  said. "We have had so many improvements to make that some of them  had to await their turn."  CURMMND HIS LITTLE DARTS.

LAND GRANT  Properly Not Vet Deeded lo Columbia and  Western, and Provincial Government is  Slow lo Act.  GLOVE CONTEST W.AS A FAKE.  Hawkins Said  to  be Undauntedly  Maa.  Ike Best  Last Saturday night's 20-round boxing contest at Giand Forks, between  Dal Hawkins and Coolgardie Smith  turned out to be first class fake, as  lar as can be learned. /Hawkins was  backed by Hugh McGuire, of Phoenix, and Smith by L. A. Manley, A.  Miller and others of: Grand Forks.  The contest was to be foi a prize of  $500 besides some side money. Exclusion trains were iun|from Phoenix  and Greonwood, -and the 'contest was  supposed lo he on the square, the best  man to win, It tinned put differently,  however, and the courts- will be called  011 to decide who will get the prize  money. , J  When it came time tO( pull off the  contest E. Miller was chosen as teleree,  although his selection- 'was anything  but satisfactory to Mr. McGuire.  However, the latter had confidence  that Hawkins was the best man any  way andjet it go. Du/jife'the contest  Hawkins had the best'of ltr.from start  ttfTmish,- repeatedly'~Ehocking' SmLli  down; but in the fourth lound t|ie  refeiee awaided the contest to Smith  on an alleged foul by Hawkins. Then,  ot course, pandemonium reiiined, and  it came close to being a rough house.  The backeis of Hawkins objected  to the decision, and wanted Smith examined by a surgeon to see'whether  there was evidence of a foul. Smith's  backers would not consent.  Mi. McGuire is known tar and wide  as a square man, but he thinks this  apparent attempt to do up the Greenwood and Phoenix sports by fair means  or foul was; too much for him. He  has''accordingly begun legal proceedings against the Grand Forks Athletic  Association to ���' recover the money  posted, something like $700.   ;   ,  R isidents of Phoenix have been  wondering why constiuction has not  been started on the V., V. and E. iail-  way from Grand Folks to Phoenix-,  the contract for which was awarded to  Welch ,& Stewait two or three months  ago. h was iccently given out that  the cause of delay was in getting the  permission of the provincial government to cross crown lands with the  line. Hut there is something more to  it, as explained by Albert H. MacNeili,  of Rossland, solicitor for the V., V.  and E.  In the first place the V., V. and E.  is building undei a Dominion and not  a provincial chaiter, which does not  lend to help matters when dealing  with a more or less untriendly pio  vincial government. It is also a fact  that the lands in question aie within  the railway grant of the Columbia and  Western 1 ail way, now controlled by  the C.P.R. The latter has not yet  secured title to the lands. If it had it  woufd be a simple matter (or the V.,  V. and E. people to exniopiiate the  land needed.  The officials of the provincial governinent being applied to, say that  the title is about to pass to the Co  luinbia & Western, and therefoie they  tan do nothing. As they opposed the  V., V. and E. in the legislative as  semblv last-year^they,are not putting  themselves .out to hasten matters, 1101  is the C.P.R., it can readily be imagined. The lecent political upheaval  at Victoria has also set the cabinet  members to thinking-of other -things,  flow ever, Mr. MacNeili looks for  an early settlement of the difficulty,  and the immediate commencement  theitafter of constiuction on the Phoenix bianJi.  M SCINLEY MEMORIAL SERVICE.  Held   at   St. Andrew's Presbyterian Chares  Last Sunday.  Although the weather was'not propitious, the memorial service in honor  of the late Piesident McKinley, held  at St. Andrews Presbyterian church  last Sunday evening, weie well1 attended, and the church was full. The  set vices were under the auspices ol  the Knights ol Pythias, of which Mr.  McKinley was an honored member,  the local lodge attending in a body.  The church was appropriately deco-  lated, a laige likeness of the martyred  president occupying a conspicuous  position.  Rev. J. M. Millai, the.pastor of the  <huich gave the first address, which  was a well deserved eulogy of the life  of the late American ruler,'showing  how he was essentially a man among  men, and one whose example all  young men could follow to advantage.  Mr. Millar was followed by Rev.  David R. Reid, Congiegational clergyman, who also in a short addiess.spoke  feelingly of the man who was the victim ol the assassin's bullet at the Buffalo exposition.  AT BIG MINES  Wm.

In a  Meeting of the Cliy Council.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council, a petition was- presented with  about 20 signatures; asking that gambling be stopped in the city. It: was  laid' over. Another petition asking  that a sidewalk be built fronv Knob  Hill avenue down Church street, and  over Aetna avenue, to connect  the 'present, sidewalk' -at the end of  Dominion avenue, was read,  and .the  t-<W%>*%/%<%*W*%s%*%%*  t  our Mines  ���j*-'   AND     Jt  .smelters.  with|turP  feet  This week's treatment at the Gi air  by smelter amounted to 4,762 tons,  the total treatment to date being 225,-  107 tons.  'On the completion of the Republic  and Grand Forks tailway it is understood that the height and treatment  rate for Republic ores will not exceed  $6.501-per toil. These ores will be  treated at Grrind F'orks. ,  ..The iniprdvenients now going on at  the Mother Lode smelter, to double  its -'capacity,;' necessitate the expendi-  of--$ 12,000, aiu about 400,000  of lumber -will' be used.

Phoenix branch for some time past,  and frequently it is not easy to secure  a seat in the single coach that does  service on this branch. Consequently  it has been decided to place a second  coach on the tiain. This will be done  as soon as the winter lime table is put  into effect, which is expected to be in  two weeks.  When the change in time goes into  effect, the inward and outward bound  trains will probably meet at Eholt at  3 p. m. daily, as last winter. This  will give an excellent service for Phoenix, the outgoing tiain leaving here  about 2:15 p. m. and arriving on the  return trip about 4:30 p. m.  Eliminating ihe Switchback.  On one of Supt. Downie's recent  visits to Phoenix he decided to do  away with the switchback on the Phoenix "branch at Hartford Junction. Accordingly,- it is 'expected that-a force  ol men next Monday will start the  work of putting in a loop at that point.  When completed this improvement  will enable both passenger and ore  tiains to make much better time be  tween Phoenix and Eholt.  of the  Crown  OUR FALL  ARE ARRIVING  right along now, and you will find everything  bright.

Corner was awarded  the contract for the election of two  buildings at the Snowshoe mine. The  office building will be 32x30 feet in  size, and the residence will be 32x32  feet, two stories.  This week .Thursday Smith Bros,  were given the contract for two more  buildings at the Snowshoe. The bunk-  house will be 34x54 feet and two  stories high, while the boarding house  is to be 34 X54 feet, one and a hall  stories high. Architect Honeynian, ol  Rossland, drew the plans. There  were a number of tenders from local  contractors for these buildings, and  the successful ones will lose no time  getting them framed and roofed before  bad weather sets in.

James Moran, owner of Moran's addition to Phoenix, the platting of which  is now being completed by Sydney M.  Johnson, P.L.S., has already had a  number of the lots spoken for by persons who intend to at once commence  the erection of homes.  The addition is a short distance  north of the C. R. R. depot, and is  the surface of the No. 13 claim, which  is owned by Mr. Moran, adjoining the  Fourth of J'-ily claim, owned and  platted by the Granby Co. Mr. Moran's lots are liberal sized, and are centrally located as regards access to the  different mines, including the Snow-  shoe, Gold. Drop, etc. The properly  has been cleared, and there is the best  of spring water close at hand. The  prices have been placed from $100 up,  according to the size of the lots and  the location.  William Yolen Williams, the genial  and  popular   su|ierintendcnt   of the  Granby mines in Phoenix, returned  Wednesday night from a seven-weeks'  trip to the east.   The trip was taken  for   the  purpose  of  inspecting the  methods of development and exliaction  in  some of the great iron and  copper mines of Minnesota and Michigan.    Mr. Williams believes in having  the advantage of the latest improvements and methods in his line of business, especially in view of the fact that  his company i.s preparing to put in the  largest mining machinery plant in the  Boundary country, and also to ship  ore on a scale hitherto unthought of  even in this country of great  possibi-  ties in a mining way. As an instance,it  may be stated that in securing" tenders  for the new machinery, a novel plan  of procedure has been used.    Instead  of asking the different makers to figure  on   a   certain size   plant,   they   are  told what the plant must do and  are  requested to prepare the specifications  themselves to cover the ground.    As  the large firms are selling all  over the  world, and  have different conditions  to  meet with  in different  localities,  and  are constantly making improvements,  they  have a wide experience,  the Granby Co. will get the benefit of  this in many different ways, and  the  new plant will be up to date in every  particular.  After leaving Phoenix Mr. Williams  proceeded direct to Minneapolis,  and  thence to Duluth.   From,there he began,   his ' trip   of, inspection., proper.  Minnesota" is divided  into two great ^  ifon t/dries,  the"!Ve>mtlIion  and  thV~  Mesaba.   The   first visited   was  the  town of Ely, in the Vermillion   range,  where the ore is of a soft nature, and  where the steam shovels aie used most  successfully in handling ore.    Virginia  City, in the Mesaba range, which is in  the hard  ore belt, was also visited by  Mr.   Williams,   and  special attention  paid   to the .working   of the steam  shovels, which was constantly going on.  After   carefully   examining   these  mines and their workings, with an output  of thousands and   thousands of  tons daily, Mr. Williams pioceeded to  Ironwpod   and   Ishpetning, Michigan,  and   thence into the  Lake Superior  copper belt, where some of the greatest  copper  mines  on   the continent  are  located.    The little  town of  L'Anse,  Michigan, was also visited, it being of  special  interest  to Mr. Williams, because  it  was  here  that   he went   to  school in the early '70s.  Some time was spent at the noted  copper mines at or near the towns of  Houghton andCalumet.Mich., such as  the Calumet and Herla, the Atlantic,  etc. Mr. Williams ascertained that so  economically was the mining done that  copper ore that ran one-half of one  per cent was mined at a profit���on a-  large scale, of course. There are no  gold values whatever, and this means  that ore that contained values of $2  or $3 or less could be made to yield a  profit. Mr. Williams, went down in  one mine about a mile vertically.  During his absence Mr. Williams  also visited his brother at Lannon,  Wis., as well as another brother at  Minneapolis. He made a call on the  Allis-Chahners Co., at Milwaukee, the  makers of the new machinery for the  smelter, Chicago being as far east as  he went on this trip.  After inspection of the methods of  moving ore in the iron ' and copper  mines visited, Mr. Williams thinks ihe  steam shovel plan may be worked Successfully here in Phoenix, and at any  rate he proposes to look into the matter more closely. In Michigan he  noticed that the cave system of mining is largely in use, and most successfully, but he does not think the system can be used to advantage in the  Boundary. Accidents are not common in the Michigan copper mints,  but while he was there a cave-in occurred and a man lost his life by attempting to go back after tools when  the cave was known to be coming.  The attendance at the Phoenix public school is encouraging, and appears'  to be constantly increasing. One day  this week Miss Hawthorne had sixty  scholars in the junior department  alone. If this increase keeps up till  the Christmas holidays there will be a  sufficient grant coming from the provincial government for 1902 to nearly;  [>ay the entire expense of conducting  school. Enough patent desks are now  on the way .from the coast to allow accommodation for 100 scholars. As it  is now, there are sometimes three iu a  desk, they are so crowded.  ��� h  ^  !*W    :  4llW,;  "iHKfe-.  ��� W& ���  XtiM  ���   'A-3t  ! K$ ii  '*'?��  i;*jyi  i'# *,"  yt  L\''l'  .t,.

These smelting enterprises are all in  the Boundary district proper, and it 'is  almost a certainty  that, in due time  the Dominion Copper Co.  wil'l'build  ,  its  own  reduction, works here also.  < Such at least, is the announced policy  ���lof this powerful^ cQrnoia.tipn, and 'no  '' one doubts its abifiiy7"hSlcarry forward  1 to a 'successful issue such an'under1-  Heie, then, we have lo'eah .smelting  enterprises> that, il cairied'''through,  will mean the extiaction and treatment  of about 3,500 tons of ore each 24  , hours; or, speaking ,within bounds,  about i ,ooo,oco tons per annum. In  the couise of a year's time,' it is e'n-  < tirely reasonable to Believe that all of  these enterprise's will be in operation  ���and perhaps with a larger capacity  than is heie estimated.

When' one stops to  calmly considei them, he can hardly  fail to appreciate that, although of  comparatively low grade, the Boundary  district is one of the richest mineral  sections on this continent.

The moie times a person sees an advertisement, and the more places. he  sees it the more he is impressed by it.  There is no such thing as indifference in advertising any more than  there is in other business affairs.  The merchant must strive to better  his lormer efforts, to keep on improving his trade by improving his advertising. '  In an age when statesmen, authors,  athletes, actors- and clergymen advertise, the plodding business man should  not hesitate.  The wise housewife acquires a good  deal of her wisdom by regularly reading the advertising columns of the  newspapers. ���  A good ad. is an announcement in  brief terms, straight from the shoulder,  concise and to the point, telling something in 1 'clear and intelligent manner.  Yhe man,who advertises, not "to  help the paper along," but to increase  his trade, and who puts energy anu  common sense into the effoit will be  more than pleased with results.  The occasional ad. is one of the  very best methods by which to squander money. Continuous advertising,  on the other hand, will bring ample  leturns for the monjy invested.  The Estimate* Are Correct.  A subscriber thinks the estimate  published in yesterday's issue ot The  Miner to the effect that the Knob Hill  and Old lionsides mines iu Phoenix  camp are capable of pioducing, from  above ihe 300 foot level in 50 years,  at the rate of 1,200 tons per day, the  large sum-of $i75,odo,ooo, is an e.x j  aggeration.' It may seem so to him,  but if the dimensions, as given in the  estimate referred to, are coirect, and,  as the ore seems to be of uniform  value, there is no good reason to  doubt that the mines "are capable of  producing the sum mentioned.���Nel-  'Son.      .

Conditionally that  claim shall not meanwhile have been  sold to someone else. Mr. Fowlei  has the light, to puichase it lor the  sum of $10,000 cash.  The Proiidence was one of the (irsi  claims in the Boundaiy di.stiict to  ship oie, and in view of the fact that  the oie output of the distiict is now  about 30,000 tons per month the lol-  lowing extract from the official report  of Gold Comniissionei C.A.R. Lambly,  published in the report lor 1893 of the  piovincial minster of mines, which is  in strong contrast to present-day conditions, may be read with interest :  "On the American Hoy, situate near  lhe lioundary creek falls, a tunnel has  been inn in 85 leet, from which 83  sacks of oie were forwarded to the  smelter at Tacoma, .'Wash., which to-  ger.hei weighed 5,400 pounds, and gave  a letuin of 230 ounces in silver and  one otfnce in gold per ton. On the  Providence mine, situate about five  miles up ihe creek fiom the American  Boy, one shaft is down 70 feet and a  second shaft 15 feet, from which, since  June last, 500 sacks of ore, together  weighing 32,500 pounds, have been  sent to the' Tacoina s.nelter,7giving  an, average return of 400 ounces in  silver and one ounce in gold per ton.  I"he'Defiance claim,' adjacent to the  Providence," yvhjclf was recorded on  the 4th of September last has 'a shaft  down 20 feet, from which 67 sacks ol  ore, weighing about 4,350 pounds,  have also been sent to the smelter at  Tacom.i, and yielded 500 ounces in  silver and two ounces in gold per ton.  The Skylark niine, situate about three  miles easterly I'nSm the Providence  camp (or about half way between the  Providence and "Gieenwood camps;,  was recorded 011 the 28th of July last,  since which time two shafts-have been  sunk on the claim,one 55 feet and the  VAST DEPOSITS OP ORE IN PHOENIX.

The LeRoi has  two full claims of 1,500 feef'in length  besides a fraction, It has in the main  property; which is 'known as the LeRoi mineral claim; an .ore shoot that  is practically 1,500 leet'in'length,'- and  107 feet in places, and the ore is  sloped from this width from wall to  wall and sent to the smelter without  sorting. The.':. Lardeau, the Slocan  and East Kootenay'should" each produce as much as the Nelson, the Trail  creek or the Boundary division.���Nelson Miner.  About Roosevelt Personally.

Placer Mining on Boundary Creek.  The old time placer fields on .lioundary creek, close to Midway, are again  being searched for the precious metal.  Years ago much gold was taken .from  this creek, and of late small quantities  have from time to time been taken  out by hand, but lhe present operations are being carried on more extensively as a hydraulic plant of small  dimensions is . being used, it being  thought that much of the earth, which  did not pay to handle by hand, can in  this way be worked .with a profit. As  yet but very little has been done beyond the preliminary work of getting  things in working order, but once this1  i.s done, it will take but a short time lo  determine whether these fields have  been worked out or not.���Midway  Advance.
