Best for warmtnand durability  FtiU range now ifl-^w^  This week the money was deposited  in the Merchants Bank of Halifax,  Grand Forks, to meet a payment of  $5,000 on the bond on the Mountain  View mineral claim, located in Summit  camp. The payment, which is not  due* until November 1st, is thus  provided for over a month ahead of  time.  The Mountain View, which adjoins  the famous 13. C. mine (the latter now  shipping regularly at the rate of 2,060  tons of ore |>er month,) was bonded a  year ago by John Dorsey from Pat  Lyons and Louis Schieffle for $25,000.  The cash payments on the bond  amounted to.$1.0,000, and extended  over a year's time. They have now  all been provided for. The balance,  $15,000, is payable in stock or cash,  at.the option of the purchaser.  immediately on the signing of the  bond last October, Mr. Dorsey started  development work on the property, and  also began the organization of .i stock  company to'operate the claim. The  Mountain View Copper Co., Ltd., was  organized, with a capital .of $500,006,  in one dollar, shares, to take over the  property. Among the prominent  persons interested.in this company are  Pat Welch and Jack Stewart, the well  known railway cantractors; John C.  Scrafford," superintendent of the 13. C.  mine; G. Arthur Rendell, of Eholt;  V. Monnier, of Cascade:; John Dorsey,  and a number of others.  Messrs; Schieffle and'Lyons acquired j  the  Mountain View several years ago [  for a song, and did little assessment  work on it, they being content to let  the owners of the B. C.niine adjoining  prove the value of theniineral in that  locality....This,-as is well7knQwn,.l��a4i  .beeupdpne^  minmg Wprld: Some assert, even, that  the B.C. is one of 7 the biggest miiies  in the Boundary.- At any rate the  present owners paid over $300,000 for  it two years ago... 7 ���'���     ���  Before ".Mr.- Dorsey bonded the  Mountain View it had beeii bonded  for $10,000-to Geo. H. Collins, of  Greenwood, the present well known  manager of t h e Golden Crown.  Through some misapprehension this  bond was -allowed to lapse. When  the owner wished to bond it again the  price had risen to jja 5,000.  With the exception of a short time  last summer, development has been  going oh steadily'in the Mountain  View. Drifting was started from the  old prospect shaft, and the mines are  now in well mineralized rock, the work  being in charge of Mr. Scrafford. A  tunnel was also- driven about 80'feet  to strike the ledge. The property is  considered by those competent to judge  to be one of the coming mines of the  Boundary.  OREAT DEKAND FOR HOMES.  More Families Continually Moving Into  Phoenix; ���.; ^7'7':  A year ago tlier* was no small influx  of families to the thdii new town of  Phoenix and most of them were accommodated for the time being. This  last summer a number of new homes  have been built, biif ,tlie demand is  still greater than the supply.  "I could rent twenty- cottages  in a  few days," said L. C.7Crawford,  the  real estate and insurance agent, to a  Pioneer.;-.man   this ;week. ' "We are  having calls for fliree, four; and five  room houses every dayv and there are  none  to. supply'.' the "demand.    The  lialf a dozen   new*   residences to be  built some by the  Miner-Graves syndicate, have all been spoken .for,  and  several times that  number could be  quickly rented if they were to be had."  New families are '-continually, moving into Phoenix, and it  is  becoming  quite a problem  for them  to secui-c  some sort of houses.'   In addition, to  this there are quite a.-number now employed ; in Phoenix who would  bring j  their families here if they could secure  houses.- .-'.!���;  For anyone wishinga1 safe investment,  here is .1 golden opportunity. Lumber never was chea*)er in the Boundary  than it is' today, and a number of  medium sized cottages could be carily  rented at fair figures, to good tenants.  And the chances are that the demand  for houses will be even more keen as  winter conies on, as tiie forces at all  mines are sure to be increased.

When this is done the  old schedule is expected to be resumed  on the Boundary railway, and at the  same time a passenger service arranged  from Eholt to Phoenix. The main  line trains will then probably also run  through to Midway, instead of stopping  over night at Greenwood, as heretofore. By the new arrangement the  east and west bound trains will probably pass at Eholt, as they did last  winter. The new schedule is expected  to take effect at midnight, of Saturday,  October 13th. '   '      ���  ��� Uhor Convention at Nelson.  A week from tomorrow, Wednesday,  October 3, there will 1>S held in Nelson  a convention of7 labor representati ves  from all portions of the Yale-Kootenay-  Cariboo district, says the Nelson Miner,  T.U?_^,R.\-erLt'PP-'S' caileiiilor 7the, pur-.  |%ise 'of selecting a candidate for the  Dominion house,-union laboring men,  to a great extent, being displeased with  the two candidates-now. in" the field.  The selection of the Nelson dele-  dates to this convention will bf made  at a meeting to be held in this city tomorrow evening. There has been an  effort made hereto prevent the Nelson  unions from participating, in the proposed convention buLwithout success.  Now, it is understood, renewed efforts  will be made to induce the Nelson delegates to the nominating convention,  whoever they may be, to fight in the  convention the proposal to nominate a  straight labor candidate and to bring  about adjournment, if possible, before  such nomination is made. Either to  do this, or endeavor to secure the en-  dorsation of the candidature of Mr.  W. A. Galliher.  Perfect printing punctually performed pleases particular people. This is  where the Pioneer shines.  Successful Thus Far;  The managers of the Phoenix Pres-  bycerian church this week have been  sending a circular to residents of Phoenix, explaining the plan of raising the  $2000 needed for construction of the  new church edifice. These have been  followed up by personal calls by Chairman Mills and Treasurer McKenzie.  They repoit good success thus far,  nearly every one approached having  subscribed something to the building  fund. Up to date several hundred  dollars have been pledged���all from  responsible persons. The plans for  the building are expected anytime from  the architect, but more subscriptions  will be needed before a contract is  let.  Monday and Tuesday last county  court was held at Greenwood, His  Honor, JudgoSpinks, presiding. The  long list of cases on the calendar made  it necessary to hold court an extra  day.  Thursday evening AV. R. Machines,  general freight agent of the C. P. R.  for lines west of Like Superior, and 1"'.  W. Peters, assistant general freight  agent at Nelson, B.C, were at Greenwood, in conference with a number of  Boundary mine managers in regard to  shortage of ore cars and some other  matters. Representing the mines were  W. Y. Williams, of the Old' Ironsides  and Knob Hill; Geo. H. Collins, ol  the Golden Crown, Frederick Keffer, of  the Mother Lode, and S. K. Parrish,  of the B. C. mine, and others.  Among other, subjects discussed was  the important one of the; supplying of  the dump cars needed for hauling the  .Boundary ore tonnage. Thus'far the  B..C.niine. and the Winnipeg have  been using box cars, aiid the recent  shipment' from the Mother Lode to  the smelter at. Greenwood was in the  same kind of cars. '*ne Golden  Crown and Miner-Graves ixrople have  been 'fortunate^in securing > regular ore  cars, but for the present, at least, there  is litttle chance of securing more of  them. ���   -.' ���'. ',''���'  Explanation was made by the railway officials that the heavy shipments  being made by  the Rossland mines  was utilizing the greater   part;-of. the  dump cars, but   100 new cars were in  course of construed no, and would  be  hurried to completion at the earliest  possible date.    Next week the  Miner-  Graves syndicate wish  to double  up  shipments of ore, increasing the daily  output from 300 to 600 tons.    It will  probably be necessary, for the time be  ing, lor the railway company to put  two crews on the ore train often cars  now running' between Phoenix and the  Granby smelter,,7and 7;runk:iiight' and  day;1\vjtli.'tl��e7teii'c^tM  are.available.'

R. officials have not; real ly 7 appreciated the immense ore tonnage  of  the Boundary that is   now   available.  But there is no mistake \ now   about  their being freely cognizant of it,  and  they making every preparation to meet  the   emergency.

Many camps which were  not represented last year will have good  exhibits this time and almost all those  which were present at former fairs will  be there with better displays this time.  OnThcQoldea Crown.  7 Geo. H., Collins,  manager -of ''the  .Goldeji7^  of lack c^caw^'t  'shipped, from the'mine in the last ten  days. A'new shaft ha's7;liien started  close to the Winm-ieg; lfne, whence  some good ore running between $20  and $30 to the ton, has been sent out.  This is close to the -point from where  the,Winnipeg has sent out a number of  cars of excellent ore.  Arrangements have been making to  double up the daily shipments front  the Miner-Graves syndicate proi^lies-  in Phoenix camp, beginning October  1 st (tomorrow), although it may take a  day or two more to get the new*  schedule inaugurated. This means  also that the second fur.nace of the  Granby smelter at Grand'-'Fork*,' will  be blown in at once.      ->7 ,;.  For a number of days a force of  mechanics has been at work putting  the new Knob Hill and Grey Kagli.*  air coriipresser together/and yesterday  steam was gotteii up in it for llie first  time. This will give the Miner-Graves  syndicate a total of 20 air drills, with  .which,to continue development, and  break down and hoist the 606 tons  daily, needed to keep the sj'ndicate'&  smelter going steadily.  Have Shipped t7,(��To��s.  Shipments of ore from these proper-  tics first began on the nth of July at  the rate of five cais, or7150 tons, daily.  This rate was kept up7'.steadily, till  August 24th, when the 7 output; w as  doubled to 10 cars, or; 300 tons, every  24 hours. 'J'he:Io-car daily rate ha*  been continued without break or intermission to the present,7.ivhen7 the  output is' again to be doubled to 20  Carsj or 600 tons, \xr day. -.  Altogether, up to tonight, ;the shipments irom the Miner-Graves syndicate pro*>ertie.s here aggregate 590 carv  of ore, or about 17,700 ton* ; About  half of, this amount came frorw the  Old Ironsides mine, one-citiarter from  the Victoria and one-quarter..; from the  K.nob Hill mines. . In another month,  at the rate of 600 tons daily the ore ship-  jnentsi.frb'm. the big produMrs7*wilt have  iit-itast" dpubieiiSj A}yyyw%$Ay  the various smelters, it will require a  large number of dumps cars constantly  not to keep the mines waiting. The  C. P. R. has been enterprising in building spurs to the.mines and will doubtless be no less so in supplying rolling  stock to take the ore away.  Mother Lode is' Shipping.  Shipments have been started, from  the Mother Lode mine, in Deadwood  camp. The first four cars were sent  down to the company's smelter at  Greenwood on Thursday. It is the  intention to ship 15,000 tons of ore  to the reduction works as soon as possible, not only to get an ore reserve at  the smelter, but to make room for more  ore in the big ore bins and for devel  opment in the mine proper.  Athelstaa Shipped Four Cars.  The Athelstan, in Wellington camp,  is steadily hauling ore to the Winnipeg,  and the management hope shortly to  ship at the rate of a car daily. This  last week four cars have been sent out,  part to the Granby smelter and part  to the Trail smelter. The contract  for hauling 1,000 tons to the railway i.s  now being carried out. Superintendent Oxley has thenewboardinghou.se  in good running order, and development is steadily progressing.   9  Real Estate and Mines.

Kstofe Hill Ave. and Fi-rst Steed:,  Prizes Gained at Paris.  The result of the Canadian exhibits  at the   Paris   Exposition  has' proved  most gratifying.    The   Dominion  received   13  grand   prizes,  as   follows:  Primary, secondary and superior  education; plans of public  works,  experimental farms, cereals,   dairy   produce,  fruits, minerals, furs,  fisheries,   metallurgy and forestry.    The  province   of  Quebec exhibits  received   four  grand  prizes, as follows:    Primary education,  cereals, dairy produce and   minerals.  The province of Nova Scotia  received  two prizes, as follows:    Minerals  and  cereals.    Manitoba received one grand  piize for cereals and British Columbia  one for minerals.  Columbia Telephone, No, :i.  Phoenix, B. C.  About That Wagon Road.  No definite information seems to be  available in regard to when active work  will begin on tiie,new wagon road from  Phoenix to Summit camp. Government Agent McMynn, of Greenwood,  says that F. D. Gambler, the government engineer, is now up the West  Fork on a similar mission, and is expected to visit Phoenix today. If some  one does not wake up, the road will  have to be built in deep snow, and  foot warmers will be needed.  Geo. E. Dey will o*>en up his jewelry and watch repairing establishment  in the Graves-Williams building next  Monday.  C. C. Bailey, of Sherbrooke, Que.,  was a pleased visitor to Phoenix this  week. He is a stockholder in the Old  Ironsides, Granby, Knob Hill, War  Eagle and Buckhorn.  James Anderson and W. J. Morrison, officials of the Athelstan mine,  were in town yesterday, with a view to  making investments.  In Boundary Mines.  Drifting to the east from the 166-  foot level of the. War Eagle, to strike  the ore body, is being continued.  Tne railway tunnel in the Snowshoe  is now in 360 feet. Preparations are  lieing made to put in a steam hoist at  the winze in this tunnel.  The statement has been current that  the Buckhorn, in Deadwood camp;  had closed down. This is not the fact,  as a small force of men is still at work  there.  The Old Ironsides now has the deepest shaft in the Boundary���over 400  leet. The Mother Lode management  proposes to sink the present 325 loot  shaft to the 500 foot level.  Hugh Sutherland, managing director of the Dominion Copper company,  owning the Brooklyn, Stemwinder and  other well known properties in Phoenix  camp, is expected here shortly.  It has been freely rumored this week  that a fine body of ore was encountered this week by the diamond drill, on  the 3oo-foot level, in the Victoria. At  the oClce of the company, however, no  statement could be had in regard to  the matter.  Two weeks ago snow sheds were  built over the Old Ironside ore bunkers, and last week the Victoria bunkers were treated the same way. The  same will be done to the Knob Hill  bins, as well as to the tramways leading to all the different bunkers. The  management does not intend to have  the least delay, on their part, on account of the beautiful.  A meeting of the Pathfinder company i.s being advertised for Monday,  October 15 th, for the purpose of considering a proposition to sell part or all  of the assets of the company. It is understood that the last work done on  the pro[>erty required considerable advances, and if the deal for a sale,  which is reported to be on foot, does  not go through, some arrangement.*;  will be made at the meeting to secure  the creditors of the company and proceed with operations.  No Better Chance ����� Ad��ertl��e. .  ���'-���' The S|>okahe fruit fairs7 and exi>6si-  tions have been a great benefit to; the  Inland Empire. There can lie no denying this. Thecountry is advertised,  its wonderful recources are shown , to  our own peoule and to the world at  large, and the exhibitors are given an  opportunity to compare notes and to  witness the results of experiments  which have been made by each other.  For the nifiieFthere is no better chance  to advertise his prosjiect, his mine and  his ore. Therefore the people of Spokane may exj)ect to see thousands of  visitors next Tuesday when the Royal  Marine Band of Italy marches down  Riverside avenue and the exposition is  formally ojiened.  Phoenix General Hospital.  Efforts are being made to get at the '  work of building the Phoenix   General  1 lospital as soon as possible, but nothing can be done till   itis  known   to  what extehFthe government will assist.  This information is  now being ascertained.   The Miner-Graves  syndicate  has subscribed $250, the -Dominium  Copper    Co.   $250,   the    Snowshoe,  management, $250 andA. C. Flumerfelt $100.    It is alf�� ex-jected that the-  War Eagle, Winnipeg, Golden Crown,  B. C. mine and  other mines will   be  glad to subscribe to the erection  of..a  first-class,- well cquip-Kid general  hospital  in Phoenix.  Tom Thumb to Ship.  ���The Tom Thumb mine at Republic is preparing to make an exjieri-  mental shipment of several tons of ore  to the smelter at Grand Forks, and the  Record at that place is authority for  the statement that if this proves a success regular daily shipments wjll be  commenced. The Tom Thumb is one  of the best develojied properties in the  "North hind" and has enormous ore  bodies blocked out. I'he lead hai  been proven much larger than any one  had ever e.\|)ected and when the railway between Republic and Grand  Forks is built, it will be in shape to  make continuous and heavy shiprjeots.  OoUcn Eagle Shlppl*-*.  The Golden Eagle, which made a  trial shipment to the Granby smelter  some couple of weeks since, has made-  such a good showing that the management has decided to send down considerable more ore. Four additional  cars of fine quartz have already been  sent down and it is thought ;i  couple of hundred tons more will l>e  ship|>ed before many weeks.���Grand  Forks Gazette.

In another column  will  be found  . tthe proposed code of mining  signals,  which was submitted by the provincial  ��� authorities to Phoenix Miners' Union  and other like organizations.    It has  generally  been   approved of by the  <   mine workers throughout the province,  .and will probably be adopted substantially as here given.  The idea of having a uniform code  of signals -for use in mines is a most  commendable one from every point,of  view.   The code proposed is in use in  jthe state ol Montana, and is woik ing  jvith much satisfaction to all concerned.  Miners,,as a class, come and go, being  ���here today and elsewhere tomoriow.  If tl\e qode of signals, for*' deep  working mines is made uniform,'tinoughout  .the wasf, that fact will reduce to the  ftninii-nqm the probability of accidents  /���org misunderstood  signals, and the  {loss fif 'life often attendant in  such  xases. ,      '>  Members ofiMiners' Unions through-  - .nut (he province look upon die plan  .of adopting uniform signals with much  il'avor, and, the employers will be found  to agree to any,plan that' better^ systematizes the.worli'of the mine and'at  t,he same time is likely to prevent accidents. '-It was a, happy thought tct  bring tip this important but heretofore  > .overlooked matter. ���. *    ' r *  The new office ot Surveyor of Provincial'Paxes and Inspector'of Provincial Revenue, cieated by the  government during the late   session,  has been filled by the 'appointment  ol    Mi.

An e.\chni)g.eremai ks that the reason  the government is so slow about getting  at the public works piomised, is thai  they piefer to do the 'work in winter,  so there wiil'be no danger of sunslrtke.  Pet haps there is something in this.  Certainly no reasonable explanation is  yet forthcoming.    ,  A SiQN THAT IS SIRE.  Some consider it a little remarkable  that Phoenix should be held on the  outside in such "high esteem universally  as a coming mining point of large importance. But thoughtful peisons are  not surpiised at this. No other camp  in the piovince can, show daily shipments of 600 tons of oie within a year  or two of thetfoundation of the town.  Keep your eye on Phoenix.  * Here is. "a'-jure "sign.. The treight  department ;qX the, C, P. R. reports  .that Boundary business is"incrcasing,  > > and*that the-increase is in 'merchandise and :orc! The further statement  . is madfe-that the iequirements o.f the  .Granby smelter ia the way of coke are  .also materiajly- assisting/ in enlarging  the tonnageL of the big railway cor-  Dpration...      \.K '''���������.  When the railway was first built���a  year ago���the,company did a big business on incoming freight as well as in  ^passenger traffic,   New businesses were  ���   opening up in every, town  along  the  .line, trade-was booming and-the  merchants  generally stocked up- to* the  ���limit.   All this made an immense tonnage for the railway company!, 'l'hen  came tlie���reacti��n.    Business in general fell off, and! the railway's business,  ���both -freight and jiassenger, decreased  ,to 'a' large  extent ** This   lasted for  .several  months, and now   a distinct  improvement is again felt. -  In the meantime development of  our big mines���the greatest' of which  are right in the heart of Phoeniv���has  ,ieenstCi-d%gpij-*OB%and the shipping era has -now started ia earnest  For several weeks ore has been going  out over the Phoenix spur at the rate  of from 12,000 to 15,000 tons a month.  Now that the-new Knob Hill oompres-  .sor has started and more ore can" be  sloped, llsis"*amount will b�� 'increased  -to over 20,060 tons moiixhly.  The tonnage of the- railway company is now outward largely and consists of ore. This tonnage is steadily  ^increasing. It is a sure sign that good  times are gradually coming again to the  Jknmdary. The C. P. R. officials are  Aware cf this and are preparing for the  increased business expected for this  fall and winter. When the other two  Boundary smelters are started, there  ,, v, ill be quite an immediate increase in  .to the ore hauling. '  , "The full dinner pail" is ^the' shibboleth of the lepublicans in the Air.c -  ican" presidential campaign, and it is  intended to catch the labor vote'.    The  theory is that Mr. McKinley is responsible for the good times that have  prevailed. Is he also responsible for  the labor troubles, now springing up  at this, critical time? Close observers  seem to think that, while McKinley  will be elected, the contest will be  much closer than Mas at fust anticipat  ed.    *  livery thing in stock that  should be found in an Up-to-  date News and Stationeiy  establishment.

'A prominent mining man.in the interior says he proposes to mine, ship  and treat ore worth from $5 a ton up.  If he proves to the world that this can  be done in the interior of the province  the day when he commences op.'rations  will be one of the most important in  the history of. British Columbia. He  says: "We must make copper at a  cost of 5 cents per pound, ajid to do  so we will have to overco.ne' the long  and .expensive haul to New York and  therakcioffs connected with the handling of copper./ Our next step, is to  build our own refinery, and I intend to  start at this work and keep it going  until'Britisli,G6Iurnbin is put in shape  to compete with the world." The importance of'this statement is known to  all who Ifnive knowledge of the conditions in- British Columbia. There are  said to be quantities of ore almost beyond human computation which would  never be more than waste under the  conditions which at '.���present prevail,  but which with the advent of cheaper  methods-of treatment will add vastly  to the stores of wealth of the world.  There never was any doubt that the  day of low grade ores would come���it  lias been drawing lfnearer by slow  degrees���but few had any idea that it  wasso close at hand.  Then there arc deposits of iron ore  which are beginning to attract the at-  tentiou of the world, iron enters so  largely'into almost all the works of  man these days that .if- may fairly be  said to lie king of metals.. Tiie product of the world is increasing by millions of tons yearly, and still the manufacturers shout for" more. ; They are  said to be running short of this great  necessity of .the-industrial, .world in  some parts, of Europe and to be looking moie and more. to America for  their supplies with each   passing year.

Is Already the Second Camp in Ore Shipments  in British Columbia.  The following facts about Phoenix tell the story of what capital has already accomplished in the chief  minin" camp of the Boundary., There are yet many promising prospects well worthy of business like  exploitation.  Phoenix itself aud the camps to which it i.s the nearest banking and business  point, are now shipping; 3/500 tons of gold-copper ore per week, or 1 52,500 tons  per 3-ear.  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, Athelstan', etc., arc  shipping not less than 50 tons per clay, 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 iu its earliest infancy.
