The rain a week ago  helped a little, but the three large  power wheels of the Cascade, Power  & Light Co., Ltd., from which ordinarily at least 3,000 horse power can be  had for industrial purposes, are now  able to furnish not more than 2,500  horse power, while the Granby's own  water power at the smelter dam, ordinarily not large, is reduced not a  little.  At present Cascade power is used  to operate the Granby mines and  smelter, the Snowshoe hoist, the Rawhide compressor, and to light Cascade,  Grand Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix.  A little Bonnington power is used to  operate the converter at the B. C.  Copper Co.'s smelter at Greenwood,  and this company will use Bonnington  power entirely when the smelter is in  blast again, as the Cascade people had  no surplus to contract for.  While the 6o,-ooo-volt lines of the  B. C. Distributing and Construction  Co. from Bonnington have been built  into the Boundary, and the several  sub-stations erected, the installation of  the additional plant at Bonnington Falls  is not yet complete and will not be for  some little time, at least. All that  this company can do is to furnish the  comparitively small amount of surplus  power which it has at its old plant at  Bonnington, which will help some but  will not go far.  As it is now, the Granby management is distributing its use of the  power available in every way possible  lo produce lhe most efficiency, using  steam where available, turning about  shifts so as to have the power for drills  when not needed otherwise, etc. Yet  the shortage is seriously felt. The  Cascade people ,?re doing everything  they can to assist, but they cannot do  much till heavy and extended rains  arrive to increase the efficiency of their  hydroelectric plant, located 13 miles  below Grand Forks on Kettle river.  And in the meantime, there will be an  increased-demand for power from ali  the large Boundary mining concerns  this fall with the enlargements now under way..

Monday evening a meeting was held  of those interested in the organization  of a steam laundry in Phoenix, and it  was decided to proceed at once with  the concern and purchase the necessary  machinery. The location decided upon for the business was lhe old Miners' Union hall, which will be purchased for $11500, and will make a very  suitable building for the purpose. Officers were elected as follows: President, G. \V. Rumbergcr; vice-president, Martin Mel lale; secretary-treasurer, I). J. Matheson; general manager, A. IX McKenzie. Mr. McKcnzie  has been conducting the Reco laundry  here for a number of years most successfully, but of late has been unable  to take care of the business offeiing in  his hand laundry on  Brooklyn avenue.  The requisite machinery will be ordered at once fiom Toronto, and it is  expected that in course of a couple of  months the new concern should be  ready to start business. It will be incorporated, probably with a capital of  $10,000, as the Phoenix Steam bum-  dry, the leading business men of the  city having subscribed liberally; for the  stock.  Phoenix Fans Were Losers.  Of course, the Phoenix base ball  boys, while they have a whole row of  scalps at their belt this year, do not  always expect to win on the diamond,  so that it was no great surprise that  they lo-t to Rossland in the game at  Nelson on Thursday. It would grow  exceedingly monotonous if they were  victors all the time. The game was  played during the Nelson fair, the  score standing 7 to o at the close. Incidentally Rossland had one of the  best pitchers in the country, a Princeton college graduate, which gave that  team a great advantage, wnile the  Phoenix star pitcher was unable to be  there. The Rossland team recently  did up one of the crack teams in Spokane, the Warwicks. The following  went over on the Phoenix team : V.  M. Sherbino, Claud McAstocker, J.  Haverty, Charles Kelly, Tuck Collins,  B. B. Dill, Lawrence McKelvey and  lid. (Mascot) Murray. A good game  was put up and the boys had a good  time.  Success  Crowning   Efforts of  Promotors.  Last Saturday Ralph Smailes, of  Greenwood, one of the promotors of  the Midway & Vernon railway, left  Greenwood again for Vernon and Victoria. He was to meet L. M. Rice,  of Seattle, formerly a C.P.R. engineer,  and S. L. Tomlinson, of Montreal, a  mining engineer, who had been over  the 150-mile route of the railway to  check up the reports previously made  as to the country the road would go  through and the possibilities of tonnage.  While Mr. Smailes would say little  for publication, it is known that the  financing of the road has been accomplished, and that strong English  moneyed interests will take the bonds  if the report is satisfactory���of which  there seems to be no doubt whatever.  Next Tuesday, September 25th, a  meeting of the company will be held  at Victoria, at which some important  business may be transacted, but the  immediate construction of this much  desired railway link hinges on the report of the experts.  After a checkered career, during  which fifteen or twenty miles of roadbed were graded out of Midway, there  now seems the best of reason for believing that the time is close at hand  when construction will be resumed in  earnest. Of course the debts of the  old concern will all be provided for���  have been, in fact ��� a matter of no  little interest to many residents of  Greenwood and Midway. Mr. Smailes  has devoted a large part of his time  for the last year or two to the Midway  & Vernon, and success seems to be  finally crowning his efforts.  ENGINEERS  HERE TODAY  Party  of 65 to   Arrive This  Morning.  Will Visit Various Mines  the Camp.  of  Boundary Mining Notes  On the 300 foot level of the Elkhorn  the crosscut is being run to catch the  ledge.  A new record was made at the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter this week  ���over 5,500 tons of ore being reduced, an average of 785 tons daily.  Crosscutting continues on the Prince  Henry af-the 160-Yoot level. After  October 1st deepening of the main  shaft will probably be resumed.  The annual meeting of the Providence Mining Co., Ltd. will be held at  Greenwood shortly, when a most gratifying report will doubtless be made  to the shareholders.  While the Granby smelter is waiting  for new castings for enlargements, all  of the furnaces possible are being operated, as will be noticed by the heavy  tonnage reported this week.  Two of the new furnaces have been  installed at the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter, and a few days are expected  to see the resumption of smelting operations, after many unforeseen delays  The main shaft at the Cr<=-scent mine  is now down to a depth of 155 feef,  and will be continued to the 200-foot  level, about which time orders will be  placed for an air compressor for the  property.  Granby's fourth dividend was paid  last Saturday, September 15th, from  the New York office of the company.  It amounted to three per cent on the  par value of the issued shares, equal  to $405,000, making $1,215,000 paid  this year in dividends by this company.  As the force is being increased at  the Snowshoe mine, it is becoming a  serious question where to house the  new men, as the bunk house there and  all places in the city are full most of  the time. It is not unlikely that an  additional bunk house will be erected  at the Snowshoe.  It is said in the east that Granby's  annual report for the year ending June  30th last, to be submitted at the annual meeting of the company, which will  be held in New York early in October,  will show that the company produced  about 11,000,000 more pounds of copper in the last official year than for the  year before.  An addition is being built to the  Granby transformer station at the No.  3 outlet. The old motor-generator set  was of 56 k. w., and another set is be  ing put in of 100 k. w. capacity, for  the purpose of operating a second electric locomotive in the No. 3 tunnel.  The "juice" is transformed from alternating to direct current for this purpose.  Herbert Bunting, of Greenwood, has  completed the formation of his E. Plu-  rihus Unum syndicate, having 20 as  members, a number of whom are residents of Phoenix. The syndicate will  take a bond on the E. Pluribus Unum  claim for $16,000 from \V. T. Hunter,  md proceed with the systematic development of the property, which has already shipped over $40,000 worth ol  high grade ore. At a meeting of the  syndicate held last Wednesday, the  board of managers was chosen, consisting of Messrs. H. Bunting, Martin  McHale and Lawson. R. D. McAllister is secretary-treasurer.  Tomorrow morning about 10.30 the  touring party of Canadian civil engineers, which has been visiting the important points in British Columbia,  will arrive in Phoenix in a special train  on the C. P. R. from Grand Forks.  Owing to lhe crowded state of the hotels in Peoenix, it would be impossible  to accommodate the party here and  they spent last night at the Forks, and  will do the same tonight, after taking  in Greenwood this afternoon.  The list of visiting engineers includes the following:  A. Amos, C. W. Archibald, Mr. and  Mrs. W. D. Baillalrge, N. T. Bertrand,  Miss Bray, Mrs. Boyd, Mrs. W. Bucke,  R. deB. Corriveau, E. L. Cousins, Octave and Miss Chanute, F. A. Drought,  J. Duchastel, G. A. Frost, J. G. Greey,  S. Groves, Col. Jones, Mr. and Mrs.  T. H. Jonas, F. S. Keith, J. Kennedy,  Capt. B. Lindsay, W. Kennedy, Mr.  and Mrs. Violette, C. deB. Lephron,  Mr. Mrs. and Master Miller, C. H.  Mitchell, G. D. MacKinnon, W. A.  Murray, T. C. McConkey, Prof. C. H.  McLeod, Miss McLeod, Mr. and Mrs.  N. M. McLeod, Mr. and Mrs. R. F.  Ogilvy, Prof. R. B. Owens, Mr. and  Mrs. Papineau, the Misses Paverley,  Prof. J. B Porter, Mr., Mrs. and Miss  Ross, S. F. Rutherford, Dr. E. Seaborn, F. P. Shearwood, Mr. and Mrs.  Frank Simpson, Miss Smith, Mr. and  Mrs. VV. J. Sproule, L. A. Surveyor,  Mr. and Mrs. Sweet, E. VanWinkle,  Mr. and Mrs. Walker, Mr. and Mrs.  James White, the Misses Wicksteed,  Col. Ruttan, Winnipeg, and C. B.  Smith, Toronto.  C. H. Mitchell is chief assistant engineer with the great power plant on  the Canadian side at Niagara. Octave  Chanute, of Chicago, is an American  engineer of repute. There are three  professors of McGill university, Profs  McLeod, secretary of the party; Porter  and Owens. G. A. Frost is a New  Yorker of prominence in his profession, being publisher ol the Engineering News. Col. Ruttan is city engineei  of Winnipeg, and C. B. Smith is a  member of the Ontario power commission, and at the same time has been  granted leave to devote a portion of  his time to project the municipal power  plant at Winnipeg.  On arrival of the party they will first  take lunch at the Deane hotel, after  which they will be shown through the  big mines of this camp, leaving about  three o'clock for Greenwood, where  they will inspect the B. C. Copper  Co.'s smelter, the Granby smelter being also visited. A. B. W. Hodges,  superintendent of the Granby Consolidated, will probably accompany the  party to Phoenix, where the members  will be met also by a committee.  McOrade-Davey Wedding.  Tuesday morning a pretty wedding  took place at the Church of Our Lady  of Lourdes, when Rev. Father J. A.  Bedard tied the nuptial knot for Miss  Emma McGrade and James J. Davey.  Miss Agnes McGrade, sister of the  bride, was bridesmaid, and John Cos-  grove was the best man. The ceremony took place at 7:30, and after the  impressive rites of the Catholic church  had been performed, mass was said,  only a few friends of the bride and  groom being present. The happy  couple left on the Great Northern  train on a wedding trip to New Westminster, Vancouver and Seattle, accompanied by a shower of rice and  the time honored old shoes, together  with the best wishes of many friends.  Mrs. Davey has lived in Phoenix for  about three years, and the groom was  well known as being connected with  the Great Northern railway.  THREFwitESr  OF DRILLING  In Just Two Years at Granby  Mines.  And  Bore   Holes   Are  Being   Made.  Still  New PosloMce Started.  Active work of construction was started Monday on the government ouilding  being erected here for the exclusive use  of the postoffice and custom house.  James Thompson has the contract  which with the lot will cost about  $3,500, and it will be rushed to completion before bad weather sets in. It  is located as near the centre of the  city as it was possible to get, opposite  the new Miner's Union opera house  on Aetna avenue, adjoining the Pioneer block.  This is probably the first case on  record in this province where a building was erected for the use of the post-  offio: and custom house, and yet to  which the Dominion government has  not contributed one dollar. It is being done entirely by private subscription, the present quarters of Postmaster Matheson having been outgrown by  the rapid increase in the postal business done in Phoenix.  Just two years ago this month���to  be accurate, on September S, 1904-���  an extensive programme of drilling  was inaugurated at the Granby- mines.  Since that date 18,7 50 feet of boring  has been done by the contractors,  Boyles Brothers, of Spokane, or over  three miles. Including that which had  previously been done at these properties, the drilling now amounts to 22,-  900 feet, or over four miles of work.  The following table shows what was  accompished each year :  In 1904 .....'     3,148 ft  In 1905        8,419 ft  In 1906 (to Sept. 1)..      7,183 ft  In two years      18,750 ft  Previous to 1904       4,150 ft  Victoria Shalt Spur.  Ralph Damp, an engineer under  James H. Kennedy, chief construction  engineer of the V., V. & E. extension  of the Great Northern in this section  of British Columbia, was here for a  couple of weeks with a party of surveyors, laying out the spur of that  railway which will reach the Victoria  shaft of the Granby Consolidated, and  completed the work last Saturday.  The spur will be about a mile in length,  starting from a point on the present  Granby spur, making a long 3o-foot  cut through the upper part of the  Idaho claim of the Dominion Copper  Co., and after crossing a branch of  Twin creek on a trestle some 300 feet  in length, will go through the present  site of the large Granby stables, and  just below the . C. P. R. spur, to the  Victoria shaft. The necessity of crossing C. P. R. tracks will thus be avoid-j  ed. Mr. Kennedy was here, also, ac-1  companied by Alex. Kellett, one of'  the superintendents of construction!  for J. W. Stewart & Co., and it is expected that the work of grading will  be shortly started, as it will require  several months to complete it, there 1  being considerable heavy rock work.     '  Total ,     22,900 ft  When Page Boyles, who is in charge  of the work, first started on the contract, he used but one drill, but sinee  then at times two diamond drills have  been in use, sometimes with three  shifts operating each drill. The work  (or the last two years has been done  mostly on the Monarch, Gold Drop,  Gold Drop, fraction and Victoria properties, with a few holes in the Old  Ironsides, Fourth of July and Phoenix  claims. The first three claims are some  of those purchased by the Granby Co.  in recent years, and diamond drilling  done demonstrated the size and value  of the ore bodies in those properties.  That satisfactory results have been  obtained from the diamond drill work  done at the Granby mines is apparent  from the fact that it is still being continued by the management.  Opinions differ as to the best system  of doing diamond drilling. The B. C.  Copper Co. and Dominion Copper Co.  own their own drills and" do their own  work, but the Granby people seem to  prefer to have it done entirely by contract.  Neil Morrison, foreman at the Sunset mine, was here Wednesday, on his  way to spend a short vacation in and  around Spokane.  Pete Lover,  of the Mother Lode, is  acting as foreman at the  B. C. Copper  Co.'s   Emma   mine,   while    Foreman.  Morrison is on the sick list.    The latter is in the Greenwood hospital.  Latest Prices id Metal*.

Marjorie  Martin, his daughter, has returned to  school in that city.  Mrs. A. W. Haley, wife of the C. P.  R. agent here, returned Monday from  a several weeks' visit to Coeur d'Alene  Citv, Idaho, her old home.  J. F. Cotton, who has been in the  office ot the Providence Mining Co.'s  office staff in Greenwood, is now with  the Dominion Copper Co. in Phoenix.  D. W. Cummins, purchasing agent  for the Dominion Copper Co at Boundary Falls, was in the city yesterday,  coming here from his ranch near  Northport.  Palmer Cook and bride, nee Miss  Elmgren, returned from their Spokane  wedding trip last Monday, and were  given a vocilerous welcome that evening by many friends, at their cozy  home on upper Old Ironsides avenue.  George W. Wooster, treasurer of the  Granby Consolidated, left last week  for a trip east, to visit his old home in  Illinois, and will probably be present  at the annual meeting of the company,  to be held in New York early in October.  W. L. Austin, the eminent New  York metallurgist, who recently made  an exhaustive examination of the Granby mines, something regarding which  will be found in this issue, completed  an investigation of the B. C. Copper  Co.'s Mother Lode mine this week,  and left for |Spokane and Butte on  Tuesday.  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.

"In union there is strength" may be  thought by some to be a trite affirmation. True, it is a maxim constantly  employed to state a principle, but it is  neither stale nor worn thread-bare.  This is because there is much force in  the principle so stated.  Unification is the trend of the age.  Unification of particles, like the joining  of the strands of a rope or cable, results ia an accretion of strength.  These simple facts are so well recognized in these times, that unionism is  the goal toward which men are moving.  The toiling masses are seizing upon this  principle of unification, or, in other I  words, organization, for the purpose of  ., being the better prepared to overcome  opposing forces. So it is with the captains of industry, so it is with political  leaders, so it is all along the line of  human progress and achievement.  The  foregoing is   simply a   plain  statement of common and universally  ��� accepted facts.    Now, let us look at a  7 particular phase or element in the processes of unification���THK PRESS.  and space to that interest ihan to any  other. Its editor will not, it is believed,  be accused of being egotistical or  given to braggadocio, if lie lays claim  to having on the paid subscription list  of the Pioneer hundreds of the  wealthiest mining investors and promoters in this and other countries. To  them and the capitalists everywhere it  is continually setting forth the mineral  wealth of the Boundary country, and  the marvelous productivity of its operating mines, which is attracting attention from all directions, and which is  evidenced by the copying from its col-  umins by the mining press everywhere,  especially in financial centers, and the  frequency with which noted investors  and eminent metallurgists visit and  carefully inspect mining properties  hereabouts.  In this connection it may be truthfully stated that the most effective and  productive of good results to the mining interests  of the Boundary of any  I of. its efforts in the   line of publicity,  has been the publication and broadcast  distribution   of   the   Pioneer  Annual  Special.    Believing this, and that there  will  be  a  greater  demand for it this  year than on any former occasion, we  shall  shortly   begin   preparations   for  issuing the Special for 1906, and shall  undertake it more confident of support  than  formerly,   because of past  successes.    There is more reason for  its  publication now than ever before, and  if it has been useful in the past it will  be infinitely more so in the futurer.  Last Sunday, September 1 dth, James  J. Hill, president of the Great Northern Railway, was 6S years of age, and  he probably jumped from his lied as  fresh as any one of his io,oco employees on his 20,000 miles of roads.  Mr. Hill was born of hardy Scotch-  Irish ancestry near Guelph, Wellington  county, Ontario, September 16, 1S3S.  At fifteen he l-.ft Guelph to make his  way in what was then the west���St.  Paul and Minneapolis ���and has since  made his home there. After experience as shipping clerk and in other  positions on a steamboat line, he became agent of the Pacific & St. Paul  railway, with some miles of rusty track  and $33,000,000 indebtedness. He  gradually worked himself up in the  railway world, each step showing the  genius of the man for system and organization, till he became president of  the Great Northern railway, and con  trolled the Northern Pacific and Burl  ington systems, all which are payint  large profits to the owners, and in very-  many ways setting an example that is  followed by other lines.  Preaching the doctrine of low grades,  heavy power, large capacity'carsand long  trainloads, when tht.se things seemed  visionary to others, Mr. Hill's lines  have created business wherever they  penetrated. He is ever seeking to  haul larger tonnage at lower rates than  competitors and yet leave a profit for  himself. He is a remarkable man in  many ways, and the west feels his impress, and will feel it for decades to  come.  o~~-  B. C MINING  Next Sunday and thereafter, all railroads entering Spokane will give a fare  and a third round -trip rate to the Spokane exposition, which opens Monday  with racing in the afternoon and a  carnival parade, festival procession,  fancy dress ball and general high jinks  in the evening, all participated in by  that new and Mystic Order of E-Nak-  Ops. This one and a third rate is  good any day, with return privilege  any day. Besides this, a special one  fare for the round trip, ticket is sold  from all points on Monday, good to return any time in the two weeks.  About October 15th the Le Roi  smelter at Northport is expected to be  in blast again.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 7.043 tons, making 227,314 tons  for this,year.  At the Center Star, Rossland, preparations are being made for the installation of the largest hoist in Canada.  The Spokane and Trinket claims,  at Ainsworth, that were not worked for  ten years, are now in active operation,  and have seven cars of ore ready for  shipment. Spokane people are the  owners.  Total ore shipments from the mines  of Yale and Kootenay mining districts  last week, were 33,353 tons, 23,000  tons of which were from Yale (Boundary) mines. Total to date for the year  is 1,164,716.  Enlargements are under way at the  Trail smelter, so that about 2,000 tons  of copper ore can be handled daily.  This is due to the successful operation  of the giant- copper furnace which was  blown in about three weeks ago.  Nothing is more condusive to suc-  sess in any undertaking, public or private, than favorable public sentiment.  In the unification of public sentiment  for or against any individual or corporate effort, there is no force more potent  than the press. All leaders, in whatsoever realm of effort, realize this fact.  Promoters of every shade, commenda  ble and condemnable, in seeking public  favor, first seek the good will of the  types which speak to millions of readers through the public press, well-  knowing their potency. - No printed  publication is so insignificant as to be  devoid of influence over its readers.  In a general sense, a well conducted  newspaper in any community���a news?  paper constantly alert to the best interests of public weal���is a most deserving and useful institution, worthy of  consideration and support by every business man in that community.

The   solution   of  this is to be  looked for, partly at least, through the  John R. Greenfield, of Vancouver,  was a caller at the   Pioneer office   last  Saturday, and discussed  the mail   service in this part  of the province.     We  were pleased   that   he   happened in at  that particular   time, so   that he could  see the method of making up the mail  from' this office, as the Pioneer has had  the occasion mors than   once   to criticise the service in the Boundary.    Mr.  Greenfield had no   criticisms whatever  to make of the Pioneer's   system,  but  marvelled  thai such   antics could happen in the transportation of   mails   in  the Boundary as we have   recorded in  the   past.       Latterly   the   service   has  been somewhat belter, though the service between Phoenix and Greenwood  will not be materially improved tiil the  C. P. R. makes its change to a   winter  schedule, whereby   the Phoenix   mails  are transferred both ways on the same  day at Eholt.    For which   no   thanks  are due the P. O. department.  *������  While   in   Phoenix   Mr.  Greenfield  incidentally noted the preparations for  the building of the new postofrice  and  custom house block, adjoining the Pioneer office, and again   approved   the  selection of location, which he endorses in every respect.  ��������  Over a Rossland date line, giving  the ore tonnage for the current week,  the Vancouver News-Advertiser puts  the caption, "From the Mining Capi-  ital." This merely shows that the editor of the good old 'Tiser is about  three or four laps behind the times.  The time was when anything worth  while in the mining line in British Columbia was supposed to center around  Rossland, and the heading, as above,  was quite appropriate then. But times  change, and so do places, and one of  the localities that has changed for the  better is the Boundary, which has  forged forward and outdistanced all of  the districts in the mining parts of the  province. If the editor of the sturdy,  slow, News-Advertiser wishes to do  the thing right, he should print the ore  tonnage from Phoenix weekly, and  give it the same caption. He would  be sticking to facts, then, and not ancient history.  For some little time past. President  Roosevelt has been brushing up his  "Big Stick," and now he has brought  it out into full view once more. If  those quarrelsome Cubans do not take  note of this fact, and resolve to be  good again, Teddy will bring the stick  into play. If he does, there is good  reason for believing that the time for  the autonomy of Cuba has passed.  Those who attended the Nelson fair  this week, today being the closing day,  are not slow to say that the exhibits  there were excellent and well arranged,  and that the fair was a great success  in aimost every way. Each year more  interest is being taken in this fair, and  it is becoming one of the important  fall events of the province. The Boundary ore exhibit, in charge of G. W.  Cornish, of Greenwood, attracted a|  great deal of attention, and from many  who knew but little of this section. It  was undoubtedly an excellent advertis-  ment of the Boundary. It will go to  Spokane also.  I  is  are not i this  .Mr. Shearer .should j McAulifl'o, on  his  m his mis-1 city, has raised as   fine   apples   as can  erroneous.  To,  This   year G.

Hood  Maple Syrup ��� _ A friend  There has recently been published  in London an elaborate review of the  copper industry, entitled "A Century  of Copper," by Brown & Turnbull,  which surveys the course of copper,  not only during the nineteenth century, but also during the first five years  of the twentieth century. ' One of the  general conclusions reached is :     ,..  "Taking all the facts and figures,  fully one-third of the copper obtained  during the nineteenth century, was  won from mines known and worked  before the century opened. It further  appears that the discovery and development of new copper ore-bodies is  not   keeping   pace   with   the  severe  treatment of lower grade ores by new  processes, which are slowly being perfected. There need be little apprehension within the next year or two of  over-production, unless new and prolific  sources of supply be discovered."  trenching upon known   supplies going  _ on under the more rapid   methods   of  the interest of the public good, it be-j mining and  metallurgy which are  the  comes a community asset of great  worth. Right here the Pioneer wishes  to express its genuine appreciation of  the liberal support and consideration  given it from the time of i,ts inception  to Bho ,pr.esen:t-, .wikieh fit, with paipdon-  ���'��ble pride, a'coftpt'S as ondorsat'ion of  the manner of its conduct.  The mining industry is the life of  this section, and for that reason the  Pioneer has always devoted more timoi  result of recent scientific and economic  advances."  "A remarkable feature," it is observed, "is the absorption of the recent  largely increased output, together with  the greater part of the stocks nominally in the hands of the trade, and this  is attributed to the unprecedented use  of the metal in the multifarious  schemes involving electrical energy.    ���  "The one danger is of output falling  to keep pace with consumption; and  the problem of supplementing existing ' New Jersey, i.s approximately 50,000,-  sources of supply is becoming imper -j 000 pounds.  Copper Notes.  A leading Amalgamated interestsays:  "So urgent has been the demand for  copper that we have sold copper ahead,  the ore for which has not been broken  down in the mine."  A Phelps, Dodge interestsays: "We  are so closeiy sold up the balance of  this year that we would not dare sell  500,000 pounds for delivery during  1906."  The enormous sales of copper during  August, have assured all the copper  companies of an i.Vj cent market the  balance of this year. The only lear is  that some of lhe belated buyers may  force an advance in the price above  the present level, and this is not desired by the leading   copper   interests.  It is understood that the amount of  copper used annually by the Underground Cable Co., having' a   plant  in  Beginning tomorrow the railways  are offering special rates to the Spokane Interstate fair, which opens next  Monday, and will continue for two  weeks. In every department more extensive preparations than heretofore  have been made, and there will be a  very large attendance from the Boundary, as usual, beyond a doubt.  �����������  Once more the announcement comes  Irom the coast that there will be an  election before the provincial house  meet's again. '1 he government, hou*  ever, has not said anything about it,  though the Grit papers, which .'-eem to  think they are it in forecasting, assert  that Premier McBride will bring on  the election some time in DecemOer.  One thing seems certain, and that is  that the Liberals have as little chance  of winning out at this time as they did  three years ago.  ��w  With most of the mines idle in  cam]), last Sunday seemed pretty quiet, as residents of Phoenix have been  in the habit of retiring with the busy  hum of a couple of mammoth ore  crushers in their ears. This, it seems,  will be the way when the Lord's Day  Observance Act, recently passed at  Oltawa, comes into effect, next March.  Rev. J. G.

A little child of Michael Strauss, of  Vernon, Connecticut, was lercntly in  great pain from a burn on the hand,  and as cold applications only increased  the inflammation, Mr. Strauss came to  Mr. James N. Nichols, a local iner  chant, for something to stop the pain.  Mr. Nichols says: " f advised him  to use Chamberlain's Pain Balm, and  the first application drew out the inflammation, and gave immediate relief, I have used this liniment myself,  and recommend it very often for cuts,  burns, strains and lame back, and have  never known it   to   disappoint."

It is  not too much to say that the credit of  turning sceptics into believers belongs  to the Granby Consolidated Co., which  has for some time joined the big  dividend payers, and has in this way  handed out the most satisfactory proof  of all of having solved problems which  metallurgists generally regarded as almost unsolvable.  Probably the first very prominent  notice which these great ore bodies received followed the visit of Dr. I.e-  doux to Phoenix in 1903. This eminent authority on copper mining wrote  at length on the marvelous deposits  which form the group of mines owned  by the Granby company, and prophesied great things of the district. Later  on 'Honest John" Stanton, the father  of the American copper industry, visited the camp, and he, too, after a brief  inspection, pronounced the Granby  properties as the greatest body of sulphide ore of which he knew.  Put though both these authorities  spoke freely of the character of the  mineralization, neither of them made  so exhaustive an examination as that  made at a later date by W. L. Austin,  a metallurgist and geologist, trained at  the great university of Heidelberg, and  trained further in the wider field of  practical research among the big mining countries of the world. It was in  February, 1905, that at the request of  some of the Granby directors Mr. Austin made his first visit to Phoenix, and  he has just completed another examination which has served to confirm  the accuracy of his former conclusions.  Definition ol Granby Ores.  "These ores are really impregnations  by vapors and mineral solution of lava-  flows, tuffs and ash beds, formed by  previous volcanic activity."  This definition of the Granby ores  may be regarded as the keynote of a  highly interesting chat with the New  York expert during which he unfolded  the history of the Phoenix  formations.  "On my first visit," said Mr. Austin,  "I could see that the whole character  of the ore-bearing rocks was eruptive,  the product of violent volcanic action,  as was disclosed by the plastic nature  of many of the specimens. The type  was andesitic although much of the  rock was so altered as to be unrecognizable with the unaided eye. I was  by no means satisfied as to the exact  nature ol many of the specimens, so  sent a collection of samples, including  practically all the various types, to Prof.  J. F. Kemp, who occupies the chair of  geology in Columbia university, New  York city. The samples were thin-  sectioned and the slides were investigated under the microscope, a method  of analysis which literally discloses the  nature of every crystal, and determines  as clearly, or more so, the character ol  the rocks under inspection, as though  they were analyzed chemically in the  usual way."  Not Altered Limestone.  Knowing that the statement had  been made fiom somewhat high quarters that a considerable lot of altered  lime stone existed throughout the  camp, Mr. Austin was asked as to this  point.  "No, the Granby ore bodies are not  altered limestone," was the reply. "I  speak now as to the general formation  Here and there are pockets of limestone scattered through the deposit, but  these are of a wholly secondary importance, and their presence may be explained as follows : In the upheaval  which took place ages ago, portions of  the original formation were evidently  broken off, and these are found today  as islands surrounded by the lava tlows  or imbedded in the tuffs and ashes,  limestone islands have been  d to marble, and have in some  instances been more or less impregnated with copper. One such example is  in the 300 foot level of the Old Ironsides. Of course, ihe liniespar which  subsequently appeared in solution is a  different matter; I am speaking now 1  of the rocks themselves."  ���'What about the proportion of lava   Prol,llSt- i,^��� ...      ��������,���  ,        ,,     ... '-,.. ' I lovers   of fast   horses,     some  to ashes, Mr. Austin?  "No ratio can be given. This particular volcanic outburst was largely ex  plosive in character. As you know,  some volcanic cones are built up by a|  series of explosive ejections and mud j  Hows, others by lava. Wo saw an example of the explosive type at Mt.  Pelee, which also sent forth huge mud  Hows. These latter will in the course  of time form tuffs. The lava Hows and  ash beds on Phoenix mountain were  later impregnated with mineral, forcer!  into them by intense pressure and  probably under great heat. Such is  the probable genesis of the Granby  ores."  It lias .So Parallel.  I liese  ���hange  of speculation. The magna, or reservoir of molten material to which these  rocks on the Granby mines owe their  origin, was of a dioriiic character, No,  I know of no parallel case, outside ol  the Boundary, to the conditions obtaining at Phoenix."  Continuing Mr. Austin pointed out  that some of the gases contained iron  in combination with some element or  elements which permitted the deposition of the metal in the form of spec-  ularite (hematite or oxide of iron),  some of the solutions contained lime  as carbonate; as to the copper it was  difficult to say whether it came in gaseous form or in solution.  Self-Fluxing Character.  "The peculiar feature of the occurrence i.s, of course, the sell-fluxing character of the ote, a condition which  has largely influenced the commercial  success attending their treatment. The  silica contained in the eruptive is low  (less, for instance, than in the case of  granite), then the specularite mixed  through the mass, and the lime, existing as spar, all assists in making a very  satisfactory smelting mixture."  "What about the distribution of the  sulphur?"  "Well, as to the sulphur, it probably  came in with the other elements constituting the ore. At what special temperature or distance below the earth's  surface there is a dissociation of the  elements, I couldn't say. Sulphur,  copper, and iron have a strong affinity  for each other, and appear associated  in the Granby ore as chalcopyrite. The  temperature of the earth's interior is  something we cannot experiment with,  and is probably far beyond that of the  electric arc. There is a whole lot of  theory about these things," and as he  made the remark a smile lit up the  eminent expert's face, and he quoted  happily, and very appositely, Mark  Twain's saying that geology is a very  fascinating science because it gives you  "an enormous return of conjecture  from a small investment of fact."  Asked as to whether the conditions  at Phoenix would pretty much apply to  the Boundary country generally, Mr.  Austin replied that "this is precisely  where 'conjecture' would come in."  He was not prepared to make a statement abont sections which he had not  personally examined, but as to the  Granby properties he was positive in  regard to his facts.  Turning more to the commercial  side, questions relating to the development work, to the extent of the ore  bodies and so on, were put to Mr.  Austin and were answered with the  courtesy, desire for conservatism of  statement, and lucidity of utterance  which has characterized all his remarks.  New Ore  Bodies Added.  "Since my last visit there have been  several new ore bodies added to those  already known to exist, discovered  largely by means of the diamond drill,  the irregular nature of the deposits  providing a good field for drill work,  and as the company has taken out  about a million tons of ore since I was  here in February, 1905, no man is  justified in fixing any definite limit to  these mines. The conditions are practically the same throughout the ore  bodies. The magnetite, it is true, does  not appear to go down in this particu  lar case, but hematite and iron pyrites  obtain all through, and speaking generally, the grade of the ore is holding  at depth everywhere. As to the manner in which the work is carried out,  it is admirable. The system of pillaring, viz , leaving pillars and arches of  ore for supports instead of timber, has  been beautifully worked out. and no  doubt timbering would have seriously-  diminished profits. The management  has met various problems as they arose  in a practical and scientific way, and  handled them economically and well.  In fact, the success of the Granby has  b:en very largely due to good management." M.  Burrki.i..  MR. OZIAL ROUNDS.  A Resident of Welland  Finds Relief in Pe-ru-na.  SUFFERED 15 YEARS.

Any drug or medicine which is  safe if taken according to directions  on the package, is a safe remedy in the  sense in which the word 'safe' is used  in medicine "  That is the only safeguard for either  the doctor's prescription or the patent  medicine; to be safe it must be tt.ken  according to directions. *  ME  BA��l*"l  THE COMFORTABLE WAY.
