Although Granby mine is quietly  pursuing the even tenor of its way and  rounding out ore at the rate of about  3000 tons daily, a walk over the big  works reveals the fact that many improvements and betterments are constantly being made-���necessitated by  the evolution of an industry which has  as yet by ho means reached its zenith.  On Thursday work commenced on  the foundation,for Granby's new machine shops, which will be 40 feet  wide by 100 feet long and located near  the entrance of No. 3 tunnel. The  new structure is necessitated by the  intended removal ot the present machine building in the pursuance of a  plan to glory .hole a large area on part  of which the present shops are situated.  This area has been all undermined and  i;i the proposed glory-hole process the  old No. 1 shaft will pass from existence.  The big development scheme will take  place next year. It is intended to have  the new building well under construe-'  tion before winter sets in but the ma-'  chine works will not likely be moved'  until the early spring. Their new location will not only make them more  convenient for the.mine but will permit  of expansion, for while Granby's machine shops are among the most up-to-  date on ihe continent, here too, addi-.  tions are frequently made.  The trackage connecting No. 2 tunnel with No. r crusher has been remodeled and equipped for electrification.  A dinky engine, which has done service  for years in this part of the mine,: will  be supplanted by an electric motor.in  ihe course of a couple of weeks, and  with this completed the entire tram  system of Granby mines will be electrified.  Carpenters are engaged this week in  enlarging the ore bins at No. 2 crusher  by an extension of fifty feet. T.hese  bins are used for storing a surplus of  crushed rock from No. 1 crusher,  which passes down through a pocket  and out through No. 3 tunnel.  A new*ptiwder~magazine' is also ;m  course of erection on Granby hill and  'I  _ will be for the purpose of keeping powder  for immediate use thawed. It is being  constructed of stone and brick and will  be barricaded on three sides by timbers  and earth. A daily supply of powder  will be conveyed to jt over, the aerial  tram line which extends to the storage  magazine half a mild away.  iGn the Monarch1 claim, which, the  Granby is opening by!means of a tun-  net,' the expectations of the management have been more than realized, pre  having been struck at 200 feet; VA  second raise of 156 .feet is now being  made from the Gold:Drop workings to  serv.e as a chute, afd outlet for' the  Monarch ore. Shipments from this  source will cornrrierice about the middle  of October.  ; At Granby smfcjter the work of. en-'  larging the last tw,6 of its eight fur-  ��� wets, is now7i,li(��jlJci|mi)leie(l.

The reduction in the average yield,  which was formerly about 25 pounds  of copper per ton, is not due to declining values with depth, but is the  result of the inauguration of new methods of mining by-which all the ore  in the vein or deposit! is broken down  together and treated, none of it being  discarded or; left.in the mine. ���;' The  management has learned that large  areas of ore, which are undermined in  summer and left unsupported, break  down of their own weight during the  wet season, resulting in a great saving  of labor and explosives. : By the first  trial of this new .some.; 1,000,000 tons  of ore was broken-arid made-, ready for  extraction at comparatively^ small cost.

Will Build to Coast  Nelson Fair  "Will the C.P.R. establish a more i Phoenix sent.a strong aggregation of  direct route to the coast from the baseball players to Nelson this week in  Kootenays as soon as practicable, that! pursujt of the purse being hung up for  is, when surveys are made?" was the | cornpetition at the big ,fruit fair. The  query made T of Sir Thomas Shaugh- Phoenicians got awav to a good start  nessy, president of the C.P.R.  on hisjt,v defeating the crack Nelson team 6  arrival in Vancouver last Monday on a  trip of inspection to the coast.  Sir Thomas replied as soon as practicable, which meant when the right  grade was found, the company would  be prepared to push through the line  to Vancouver. "The project will mean  much for both the development of the  Kootenays and Vancouver," he said,  "as it will mean quicker and cheaper  transit of goods, since the grades when  decided upon will be lower than those  of the more northerly route. A con  tinuaiion of the Crow's Nest line from  Midway to Nicola may become a live  issue in the future, but it has not yet  been decided upon. There are many  surveys being made, but more will have  to be made before we can decide on  the proper route."  Replying to other queries Shaugh-  nessy said his road had no thought of  building over Hope mountains. Men  tioning Hill's eight mile tunnel scheme,  he said his line preferred to keep in  the open. When the C.P.R. line from  the Boundary was built it would be by  a direct route.  Vancouver should naturally be the  distributing depot for the entire upper  country, and this idea was being taken  into account. Shaugbnessy definitely  promised that as soon as the tourist  rush was over steps would be taken to  reconstruct the Vancouver hotel on n  magnificent scale, the scheme taking  two years to carry out.  He said that the electrification of  the mountain lines had been taken up  only so far as securing data was concerned. Carrying out the idea was far  from imminent. There were no new  developments in the question of the  Kootenay Central from Golden to Fort  Steele.    .;.____   Unleti Theatre Company  The Phoenix opera house has booked the Union Theatre company for  Monday and Tuesday evenings, Sept.  27 and 28. Hall and Lorrain, direct  from the Webster circuit, Chicago,  celebrated singers, imitators and  comedy artists, will give a good vaude  runs to 2 on Wednesday afternoon in  what is credited with being -the best  baseball match seen in Nelson this  year. On Thursday, however, the  team went to pieces and the Moyie  nine walloped them to the extent of  securing eleven runs, while Phoenix  drew a lonely pair. -But the winners  were no slouch team: they played ball  of the big league variety.  Lyceum Concert Company  The concert given by the Lyceum  Concert company in the Taber opera  house on Monday night was a grand  success and met with a very large and  appreciative audience, says the Leth-  bridge Herald.  Manager May can be congratulated  on his as well as on the part he takes  in the program. After the opening  piece, Medley overture, Miss Clark  rendered "Cemena" with splendid  effect. Her beautiful voice rose and  soared, completely electrifying her  audience. Miss Simm sang in her usual  beautiful style. In her rendering of  the "Enchantress" her rich musical  voice showed up splendidly and won  great applause. The violin solos by  Mr. Lay ton were greatly appreciated  and showed skill and ability. Mr.  Cooper's baritone solo brought down  the house. His songs just suited his  big beautiful voice. The quartettes by  Misses Clark ind Simm and Messrs.  Lavton and Cooper were most artistically and perfectly rendered as were  also the duets by Misses Clark and  Simm, and Messrs. Ely and Cooper.  Each number brought forth rounds ol  applause and encores. Mr. Ely, ac  companist, was as usual master of the  art. They left Taber with a very urgent invitation to return again.  The company will appear in Phoenix  opera house on Friday, Oct. 1st.  C P.R  Changes Division  The Pacific division of the C. P.

A Minnesota syndicate headed by  C. E. Reed, H. L. Sumption and Irving Todd, .of.Hastings, Minn., has  purchased a,tract of .6000 acres of land  on the ���North .Iv.'.rk, zo miles from  Phoenix. The syndicate will subdivide the land and bring Th" settlei's.  Thelandis of good soil and is suitable  for fruit raising and mixed farming and  its settlement will undoubtedly do  much in promoting the prosperity of  that part of the Boundary district.  The timber commission, composed  of Hon, F. J. Foulton, A. S. Goodeve,  M.P , and A. ���U"C. Flumerfelt, sat in  Grand Forks on the iSth inst. and  heard considerable evidence regarding  forest fires. The chief witnesses were  A. Robinson, of Robinson & Lequime;  Charles Cox, fire warden, and F. . W.  McLaine, forest ranger for the C.P.R.  The evidence was to the effect that  a large number of the fires were started  by locomotives. All the. witnesses  agreed on one thing and that was that  prospectors were not responsible for  starting bush fires, but that campers  and hunters were responsible to a considerable extent for a number of the  serious fires.  Twenty two locations were recorded  at the government recording offices,  Grand Forks, last week. During the  same period there were 30 certificates  of work filed. Certificates of improvements were granted to M. M. Kerman  for the Iron Cap claim, Gloucester  camp ; to F. W. Reid and A. L. Whiteside for the Banner fractional claim,  Franklin camp. Crown grants were  issued to T. H. Richards and William Allen for the Helton claim, We)  lington camp; to W. Y. Williams and  W S. Harris for the Summit claim,  Worcester camp. The following conveyances also were recorded during  the week : All of the Bluestone  mineral claim, Franklin camp, James  McDonald to B. J. Averill; all of the  Tripod fractional mineral claim, Wei  lington camp, Martin Lundquist to  British Columbia Copper company; all  of the Dempster fractional mineral  claim, Christian Lake district, H. I.  Dempster to Charles Dempster.  NEW DOMINION TO COMMENCE  tations Early Next Month���Will Ship to B. C. Copper���  Oro Denoro Resumed on Monday.       '  7,The New Dominion Copper company will commence operations at its  properties at "Phoenix early next month.  This information was received ma dispatch to the Pioneer from.New York  yesterday, but -owing to the absence  fro.m the city of John Seward, in  charge of the properties, further information cannot be secured at time of  going to press.  7 :.:'  7 ;      7'   "  J. Parke Chahhing, consulting engineer, who ; recently inspected the  properties here, has drawn up plans  for a contract between the British Columbia Copper company arid the  New Dominion Copper company  whereby the tatter's'.-:" ores will be  shipped to the Greenwood smelter for.  treatment. ,;  In order to handle the ore from the  shippers of both companies the British  Columbia management has decided  upon an enlargement of its smelting  capacity from 2,000 to 3,000 tons per  day. This-wili' be effected through the  construction of a fourth furnace, and  the enlarging by 33 per cent of each of  ihe three furnaces now at the smelter.  It is proposed to construct the new furnace 30 feet long by 56 inches wide,  and if it proves successful in the economic reduction of ore, the other three  furnaces will be enlarged to the same'  size. :���':���''������'      ���   ��� '  ' ���    -': '>���" ���'���,  ' Only two of the three furnacesat the  British Columbia smeltet. hav^ been in  ope/ation this year,-butahe third, will  be blown in about Oct. 3rd. |t is expected that by that time regular^jship-  menis will he made from the c&n!ipany's  Oro Denoro mine and possibly from  one of the-Dominion properties.  The Oro Denoro miri&resumed opei  atibris on Monda^^|i|oying about 25  men, and last7ni|Hi?a double shift was  inaugurated'with "additional machines  at work. 7 It is also possible that the  Emma mine will again be employing  men in the near future. Both mines  have recently been 'thoroughly-'"pros-  pected with a diamond drill, and as a  result of a visit of Consulting Engineer  Frederic Keffer to... the...Emma cm  Thursday it is reported the mine will  shortly resume.  The Rawhide will probably be the  first of the Dominion mines to appear  on the shipping list. A large amount  of ore is blocked out.and considerable  broken down, and Mr. Seward, assisted by G Mead of Greenwood, has *  spent the past ten days surveying and  perfecting plans for the extraction of  ore. The Brooklyn mine will require  to be unwatered before shipments can  be made, but this would 6nly; require  the operation of the pumps for three  or four days.    7   , -: ���:. ���-. ,7-, ������.-77.  ammmmmmSSI&SIQSSSi  uFsssBrnm^^gM  tbaoce (or Silver Salver  Major Bennett, Victoria, who is on a  tour inspecting the rifle associations of  the interior, was in the city Thursday  inspecting Phoenix association's range  and equipment, and complimented the  memners on the lively interest beinj:  taken in the practices. He stated that  the local association would be given a  silver salver for competition of its  members, as is being given associations  elsewhere in the Dominion. The  salver goes to the best marksman,  whose qualifications must be arrived at  in shooting 49 rounds of ammunition  in competition under prescribed conditions.    Copper Situatloo  Boston���The inquiry which has  sprung up in the copper market dining  the closing days of this week has put a  much better complexion on conditions.  The demand from domestic consumer-  has been particularly good, with the  result that there have been some good  orders booked, for home consumption.  eas1  '���..-..  Carney  Copper  After visiting the mine oh the 18th,  Mr. Martin writes : "1 am very much  pleased with the improvement in the  ore in No. 1 level since my visit of more  than two and one half months ago;  The ledge has been followed for more  than 112 feet and is growing better  with every shot.' We have crosscut  more than 45 feet and have not reached:  the hanging wall yet; Our engineer,  Mr. F. V. Phinney, run7 the lines in  both tunnels on the 18th arid says, in  speaking of No. 1 level���"I look for  your largest ore body to be from 100  to 150 feet ahead of you on this level."  Speaking of _No. 1 level, he says: "The  tunnel has been driven 927 feet  arid has averticle depth-of 480 feet.  As yet this tunnel has riot encountered  the ore, but the ground in the face is  becoming mineralized, and you may  encounter it here most any time." '^he  last round fired while I was there,  showed the entire face of the drift to  be almost salid ore. Owing to the fact  that snow has made its appearance the  second time, the board of directors decided to defer putting in the compressor until next spring. A few thousand more shares will be sold at 11  cents. After Oct, 10th 100,000 shares  will be offered at 15 cents per  share."  Rebekahs Hold  Social  A large number of Phoenix Rebe-  kah lodge.and their friends spent a  very enjoyable evening in the Miners'  Union hall on Monday. The earlier  part of the evening was spent in progressive whist, Mrs. J. E. W. Thompson and R. J. Gardner capturing the  leading trophies, while Mrs. Horrell and  H. Craig were equally successful in  pursuit of the consolation prizes. Wer  ner's orchestra supplied music for the  dance program, which continued until  the early morn. A feature of the entertainment was the drawing for luncheon and the weighing of your "prizes."!  Coroner's Jury Verdict  Coroner A. S. Black presided at1 an  inquest at the. Brooklyn hotel on the  r 7th inst. on the remains of  Roderick  Olsen, who was killed.in the ore train  wreck on one of the Granby switch  backs the night previous.���'   The jury  was composed of T.  B." Cosgrove, J. '  R. Clark, T. E. Collins, O.-C. Wilson,  E. Lee and G.  N. .Rogers, their ver ,  diet being as follows:   "That deceased  came to his death Sept. 16th at  ibi2o  p.m.   on   No.   2   switchback   leading  from No.- 2 ore crusher of the  Grariby  mine,   death   being  caused* by being  crushed :between engine and  tree, the  engine being derailed by striking tree  across"the track.  "We,"the jurbrsj're  commend  that the   Great   Northern  railway company have trees: cut Jihat  are within reaching distance  of'ltrack.  We  further:  find   that  accident was  ���totally unavoidable by train hands."  Transferred 10 Victoria  William H. Docksteader, who for a  number of years has been provincial  constable with headquarters at Phoenix,,  has been transferred to the office ot  the superintendent of provincial police  at Victoria, and will leave for that city  next week. Constable Docksteader  has discharged his duties in the district in a manner creditable to both  himself and the department, and is un  doubtedly in line for promotion. His  many Boundary friends will wish him  every success.  C. Taylor, a new member of the  provincial police force, arrived from  Victoria Wednesday evening and will  succeed Mr. Docksteader here.  The wrecking crew worked Saturday  and Sunday getting the ill-fated engine  and cars of last week's wreck back on  the rails, which they took to Spokane  repair shops. Many citizens watched  the interesting proceedings of getting  the locomotive out of the gulch.  ��Tt^H5E5H5E5E5e^E5e^H5ESH5e75H5E5eSMH^^  l-n Sept  25, '09  S BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

The Copper Craze  It is not'so very long ago that the  "CopperCraze" had the mining world  in its grasp and the red metal occupied the centre ol the stage, almost to  the exclusion of all other metals. The  cry was for copper, and silver and lead  were pushed * over into a little ob  cure corner of public attention. Then  carafe the crash, the low prices and an  overloaded market. Coppers took a  big tumble and have only slightly recovered as yet.  'r The "essential feature in connection  with the present-day copper mining is  cheap production and in most cases  this \i closely associated with low-grade  propositions. The obvious reason for  this is that cheap production necessarily depends on extensive operations  and the low-grade propositions are  usually of large calibre.' With the  metal above 20 cents many mines could  be profitably worked, with the market  below 15 cents are now in a state of  enforced idleness. The demand for  the low-cost coppers, and therefore low  grade, is materially increasing and  several such properties are now being  exploited.  It has been said "that without the  financial difficulties which have beset the country the market price of  copper would have declined. The  supply was becoming greater than the  demand. Under these conditions production has been curtailed to such ah  extent that the reserve stock ot the  metal has been practically used up.  Industrial progress<(wlil create a strong  de'mandTor copper,* tfnd to meet" this  demand the production .will be p'ropor  fflir'T.Tnr  PHOENIX PIONEER, PHOENIX.

It is  about 40 miles from east to* west^ and  extends 50 miles north from the International boundary. The character of  the district while varied, is not very  different from' that of; other parts bl  the gieat inteiior plateau of British  Colurhbia, save that   the  highest  ele-  wafm without beingoppressive, and  the nights arc always cool. The atmosphere is clear.'the prevailing conditions being ^bright sunshine both  winter and summer, and the air is!  crisp, dry and bracing. '' he average  rainfall is 10.8 inches, and snowfall 27  inches which would represent seven to  twelve inches on the level.  Between Lower Arrow Lake, its  eastern boundary, and the divide between the 'Kettle River Valley and  Okanagan Lake, the Boundary possesses  many fertile   valleys   and   wide  positive of the fertility of the soil. The  abundance of water and the variety of  the native grasses - makes the Sidley  Section an ideal dairy country. Hog*  and poultry raising have proved very  profitable to those who have 7 tried  them. Most of the land not already  Uken up is in the railway belt. One  of the unique conditions .found in this  section is, that despite its high altitude  neither drainage or irrigation is required.  There is a fine  plot  of  land  near  Midway, which the settlers  testify  is  free   from  summer  frosts and  yields  si.lc.irlid.crops nf potatoes, barley, oat--  m.u '���vigy.ables.,, Fiuu   is   succssfullv  grown although the  number  of trees  planted as  yet  is  not   large     Those  that have come into  bearing  show  a  healthy,   clean   growth, ' and   produce  ��ood crops,    A peculiar fact was noted  near Midway by  Professor   Sharpe  of  the  Government  Experimental Farm  at Aaassiz, B.C.', which   is,   that   "potatoes and fruit trees on   the  uplands  north of the town were doing very well  without  irrigation."    Other  observers  have made similar  remarks   with  regard to other parts of the southern districts, and there is little doubt  that  some of the bench  lands,  of exceptional depth and  fertility,  will   yield  good returns for, many years   without  irrigation if extra care can be  given in  the way of tillage and rotation, of crops.  Between Cascade  and  Carson,   12  miles, there is  a  fine tract  of  land,  about 20,000 acres, in a beautiful valley  about two miles   wide.    Most  of  the  cultivated   land    here   is   devoted   to  mixed   farming  and   dairying.    Fruit  growing  is  rapidly becoming   popular  in this section, about 30,000 trees representing the   progress   made   so   far.  The land   is   admirably   adapted   to  app.l'es, pears, plums and berri-es; cherries, grapes and peaches are also grown  to a small   extent.    Five   carloads  of  fruit were shipped in 1905   to  eastern  points.  A BRldHT FUTURE  ��� Three lines of railway are now projected traversing the Boundary so that  its future as a desirable field for agriculture and other industries is-assured.  The   Iioundnry,   and 7i|i  fact> ', auV  Southern British Columbia, offers  ex-  ceptionnl opportunities  to .industrious,,  steady men ot small means.    Mechanics, laborers and miners are in demand  at good wagesy while the pr.irtical   far-  mi r can make no mis'ake .in"securing  land and devoting himself to its  culti  vation.     The   Covert    Ranch,    near  Grand Forks; is a'splendid illustration  of what may be accomplished  by  any  man possessed of enerjgy aiid perseverance.    The owner of this magnificent]  property began   life in  the  Boundary  whh a pair of willing hands and a cash  capital of $60 borrowed   money.    Today he owns one of the most valuable  properties in tiie province and has been  for many years living in  the  midst of  plenty���master of a competency.  ^!'7. .|^"'-;ir-.'

As a fruit country, the district adjacent to the city is unsurpassed. ��� In  1907 Grarid Forks won the district  cups at Nelson and Kaslo, a bronze  Knightian Medal at the London, Eng.,  Exhibition and the Gold Medal for  the best five boxes of commercial apples  at the Northwest Fruit Growers' Exhibition, held in Vancouver, in a competition   with   the   famous   Oregon,. ��� aiid !

Roads  radiate from the town in all directions,  giving access to the numerous mining  camps, where it derives the greater part  of its   trade.    The'British   Columbia  Copper company's smelter, situated at  Anaconda,   a  suburb  of   Greenwood,  has a capacity of over   2000   tons   per  day.

Pabts of thb City  The biggest men in the country have found that the easiest and  surest way to spell success is Advertise. Suppose the newspapers  did not publish the news, how would people know what is happening? If you don't publish the Stoke News how will folk know  about your goods ? You can never sell the goods people do not  know you have. Advertising is telling about your stock. The  firm that advertises gets ahead, every time, of the firm that does  not advertise. Shopworn and out-of-date stock is the penalty many  tmxehsmte gay 4br not advertising.
