Stewart, who enjoys the  distinction.of being the first subscriber  to the Pioneer, was in the city Tuesday  after.an absence of over two years.  During that time he was for 10 months  in charge of the Dominion mineral exhibit at the Paris exhibition in 1900,  for nine months in a similar capacity  at the Glasgow 'exhibition in 1901, and  for several months on a like duty at  the RpyaL.Exrhange in London, in  1901 and 1902. He has now received  the same kind of an appointment for  the St. Souis exposition of 1904.  Mr, Stuart's visit to Boundary points  at this time was for the purpose of  working up an interest in the St.'Louis  fail, and he is in hopes of getting the  managers of <some, of the leading  Boundary mines to have working models of their, properties at the St. Louis  event. He believes that such models  would be a most impressive advGitis  ment.

Vigil by Manager Graves,  jay P. Graves, general manager of  the Granby Co., spent a couple of days  in camp this week, on one of his trips  of inspection;-- He states that the machinery for one of the new 30-drill air  compressors has been shipped to Phoenix from Sherbrooke, Quebec, as well  as that for the immense, ore crusher  soon to be installed at the Knob Hill  mine. He could not tell when power  lor the electric motors would be furnished by the Cascade people, the latest estimate being about November 1st.  The company's smelter also, at Gian'd  Forks, is waling for more power, so  that the other two furnaces may be  blown .in. H. N. Galer came up from  Grand Forks with Mr. Graves.  Inspection by Bank Officials.  James McKinhori, general manager  of the Eastern Townships Bank, of  Sherbrooke, Quebec, accompanied by  W. L. Ball, manager of the Richmond  (Oue.). branch, came in.Wednesday on  the annual trip of inspection, of the  local branch. A. C. Flumerfelt, a director, and Wm. Spier, manager of the  Grand Forks branch, came up with  them from Grand Forks. After noting  that everything about the business of  the Phoenix branch was in good shape,  the party drove to Greenwood Thursday morning to take a look at the  smelters in the Boundary Creek valley.  A Few Facts.  A few facts concerning the Mutual  Life of Canada: It is thiity-three  years old; a Canadian Life Company,  owned solely by its policy holders,  and the policy holders receive all dividends and profits; it is the only true  Policy holders' Company; its reserve  is held on a higher standard than is  required by the Canadian government;  its premium rates are low, and it issues  all modern and progressive, forms of  policies. Before placing your life insurance with any other company, it  will be to your advantage to get full  particulars Irom W. J. Twiss, general  agent at Kaslo, B. C-  Geological Professors.  The party of men from Ottawa, in  charge of the Dominion Geological  Survey, that have been camped at Marshall lake, just above town, for a time,  have removed their camp 10 the vicinity of Hartford junction, where they  are completing some notes on the geological formation of the Boundary. It  is understood that the party, including  several professors in the employ of the  government, have nearly completed  their labors for the season, and will  shortly return to their homes iu Ottawa.  First Snow Fall of Season.  Thursday afternoon Phoenicians  were treated to the first snow fall ol  the season. For two or three hours it  stormed furiously, covering everything  with an inch of the beautiful, which,  however, quickly disappeared the next  clay in the warm sunshine: The autumnal equinox was certainly a success. Last year'the first fall ot snow  here occurred September 6th.  New Trades Council Officers.  Last Tuesday evening, at its regular  fortnightly meeting, new officers were  elected by Phoenix Trades and Labor  Council, as follows. President, John  Riordan; vice-president, E. Brown;  secretary-treasurer, W. ][. Bambury,,;  statistician, C. H. Towns; sergeant-at-  arms, Wm. Fleming. It seems to be  settled that there will be a socialist-  labor candidate at the coming election.  An impression is growing, and most  certainly there appear7to   be   good  grounds for it, that the camps of the district known as the Lower Similkameen  will shortly, prove, to be no less a mar  v.el in. the  mining world ���.-'than  is the  Boundary  country ''today.. -Notwithstanding the secrecy systematically fostered by the chief operators, the Marcus  Daly estate, owniftg the  Nickel  Plate group  in Camp Hedley, enough  leaks  out  to warrint  the belief that  camp will soon be the centre of a great  mining industry in the near future.  There several most promising camps  in the Lower Similkameen, but for the  amount of work done aijd  the extent  and richness of the  ore, Camp. Hed-.  ley Overshadows them all/   Within the  last few days several, residents of Phoenix have returned -from'-the Similkameen, and their evidence bears out the  above statement to the fullest degree.  1.  .     \-r. . - -.;  It is a historical   fact; that  the first  locations in that' cafnp'were made by  Ole Johnson and Louis Jacobson, two  residents of Phoenix, in August, 189S,  having been grubstaked by .Wm., Yolen  Williams, then, as n6w;superiritendent  of the Granby  mines.   A  little later  the Nickel Plate was staked, and afterwards   acquired   for>$60,600,; by- Mr.  Rogers; the present manager, for the late  .Marcus  Daly.     Mr. Rogers at once  began systematic   development work,  which showed up so well that last year  he built a wagon road ,50 miles to-Pen-  ticton and brought in an air compressor.' , !' ' I  . All this time Mr. Rogers maintained  the utmost secrecy about results at the  mine, and strangers were not allowed  on the  property   under  any   pretext.  But Mr.  Rogers  had   method  in his  madness, for   his people wanted more  claims, and if the prospectors knew ol  the richness of the   Nickel  Plate, up  would go their prices:    So  he worked  away, acquiring some claims for a few  thouslands and paying well  for others.  Two adjoining claims, the Copper Cleft  and Mound, owned   by  the  Phoenix  men, he particularly wanted, and finally got them  for $52,000 cash.    It is  said that the syndicate  now owns 20  or 25 claims   in   a  group, costing upwards of $250,000, and they are still  buying���when they can.  Pulling ia Redaction Plant.  At last the time has arrived when  the treatment of the. ore must be con-  sideied. By testing it was found taht  much of the ore was flee milling and  some of it concentrating, and so it is  understood that a double plant will be  installed on Twenty Mile creek, four  miles from the mines, at its confluence  with the Similkameen river. The  creek itself offers magnificent bnpor-  tunities for developing power for use  in the mines ahd reduction plant. It  leaked out that something was in the  wind, and machinery, mill and tramway representatives began dropping in  on Mr. Rogers at the mine, after a long  and tedious ride on the hurricane deck  of a nimble cayuse. According to  common report, what they said after  interviewing Mr. Rogers would not  look well in a respectable journal. Evidently the received the well known  frigid reception typical of the Nickel  Plate nf.magement.  Mr. Rogers had not secured his mill  site, and was not ready to talk. The  land needed was either occupied or  owned by Indians, who could not sell  or trade without permission of the Dominion government. It is understood  that arrangements have now practically  bean mads for a 250 acre tract across  1'wenly Mile creek from Hedley City.  To secure this most desirable plot, the  Nickel Plate owners have bought over  twice as much land on the opposite  side of the Similkameen river, to be  exchanged for the much needed 250  acre tract.  What the Nlckle Plafe Has.  But little has gotten into piint about  the NicKel Plate mine itself, but it is  no'wild assertion to state that it is a  a most valuable property, with large  veins of ore, carrying high gold values.  After one'year's development it is said  that over $100,006 worth of ore was  blocked out���by the time the bond  was due. It is said that over $250,-  000 worth of free milling ore is now  ready for the stamps, and that an aver  age value is $60 per ton.  While as yet there is nothing official to.confirm these reports, owing to  the secretive policy ol the owners, it  is believed they are well within facts.  For four years development lias been  steady with a force of from 30 to 40,  and hundreds of feet of work have been  done, with many thousands of tons of  ore blocked out as a result. The time  is probably appioaching when some  light will be thrown on the subject.  Marcus Daly's trusted lieutenants  did not look all over British Columbia  for a properly to suit them, and then  decide upon the Nickel Pate in Camp  Hedley and spend' thousands in de  velopment, without good leasons for so  doing. ,If the indications count foi  anything, Twenty Mile creek will he  the centre of a large industry in the  course of another year, with a couple  of. townsites already located and platted there, to make things interesting.  LIGHT CO.  ORGANIZED  To Carry on the Business in  Phoenix.  IT HAS A CAPITALIZATION OF $IN,tM  Power Is Available Mere.  Boundary Mining Notes.  San Poil (Republic) ore recently  sent to the Granby smelter,.netted  $11.30 per ton.  Supt. Williams is pleased that his  carpenter gang, under Foreman Wi ight,  got the big compressor house under  cover before the wet weather began.  As the wagon road from the Jewel  mine, Long Lakecamp, to the railway  siding, has lately been put in good  "shape, a resumption of shipments is expected from, that mine.  .Tiie '.....three.: Boundary Creek blasi  furnaces are now smelting about 1,200  tons daily/and with the two furnaces  at the Granby smelter, nearly 2,000  tons of ore are being reduced daily in  the Boundary.  Alexander Sharp, M. E., who has  had charge of the diamond drill operations on coal.measures in the Similkameen this summer, visited the coal  fields of the B. C. Coal Co. last week,  on the North Fork of Kettle river.  C. L. Werner and R. Sluggetl, of  Greenwood, are working the Lancashire, adjoining the Gold Finch, between Phoenix and Greenwood. It is  a high grade property with a si* and a  12 inch vein of ore. Offers to lease  have been refused.  Since the Mother Lode people begun  opening up the upper part of the glory  hole, they have been agreeably surprised at the richer character of ore  encountered. ������The entire shipments,  some 700 tons of ore daily, are being  taken from the surface workings, and  of course at low cost.  EAGLES HAD MUCH FUN.      ;  So Did Spectators At the Match Game With  Qraaby Team.  Last Sunday afternoon  the Eagles  played a game of base ball  with  the  Granbys, the champions of the Boundary. The game was expected to create  much merriment,,and it came up to the  expectations of all���and there was  a  laige concourse of spectators to take it  in.  The Eagles did their best to  wing  their way around, the bases, "and the  Granby boys allowed them to secure a  Officers Chosen-Company Will Take Over thel few runs, but the result was a foregone  Present System as Soon as the Cascade (conclusion, at the end-the score standing 31 to 13, in favor of the  Granby  twirlers.  There were a numberof features; to  the game, and at the risk of making invidious comparisons, the work of E.  P. Shea on first base and the umpire  work of Messrs. Hememway and Williams nfay be mentioned. At one time  it was feaied that the Hamilton powder  magazine, a few hundred feet to the  rear of the backstop,' would suffer from  the wild throws. It was remarked that  the only thing needed by the Eaules  was a molasses barrel, to catch the flies.  The line-up was as follows:  Eagles Granbys  Jus. Marhsall ... Capt. ... Joe Strutzel  T. Lyona Catcher J. Haverty  K. Reppeto Pitcher .... J. Strutzel  R. P. Shea    1st B A. Clark  Wm, Laird    2d B W. Cook  J. Jenkins    3rd B H. Strutzel  J. Lamping ....   S. S L. De Voin  E. O'Brien   C. F Geo. Mead  L. Gagner.  ...    L. F P. Cook  A. Driscoll  H. F W. Watson  Wm. Fleming .. extra  Another game is to   be  played  tomorrow if weather permits.  Some 15 months ago the city council of Phoenix granted an electric light  and water franchise to Messrs. Graves,  Flumerfelt and Williams. Immediately thereafter woik was started on  the water system, which was much  needed, and it has beeiv in operation  foi nearly a year. It was not the intention to take over the existing electric lighting system, owned and ope-  lated by the Greenwood Electiic Co.,  for which arrangements had been  made, until power could be delivered  here from the large plant at Cascade.  Thate date is now near, although it  has been postponed several times, owing the exigencies of construction, and  the Phoenix Electric Lighting Co.,  Ltd., has been organized and gazetted,  with a capital stock of $106,000. A  meeting was held this week of those  interested, and the following provisional officers of the company were  elected: President, H. N. Galer; vice-  president, O..B. Smith, Jr.; treasurer,  G. W. Wooster; secretary, John F.  Hemenwayj auditor, H. F. Mahon.  Just when the new corporation will  take over the existing system is not  definitely known now, depending as it  does on when the Cascade Water,  Power and Light Co., Ltd., can itself  commence opeiations; but it will probably be some time during November,  if not sooner, as the finishing touches  to Ihe harness for the Kettle river's  magnificent waterfall at Cascade are  now being applied.  ...��....,,, .,.,.����������������.���  LOCAL JOTTINGS  "I:  ...,,.*..,,,��,.  Engineer Kennedy Returns.  James H. Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V., V. &. E. railway, and A. M.  Lupfer, chief locating engineer of the  Great Noithern, returned to Grand  Forks last Saturday from a reconnoiter-  ing trip over the proposed line between  Midway and Vancouver, most of the  tip being covered on horseback.  The existing conditions for a line  through the Cascade range are slated  to be quite favorable, two available  passes, about fifty miles southeast ol  the C. P. R. line, being examined. The  eastern approaches are gradual, much  more so than those on the west, which,  while abrupt, will offer no serious engineering obstacles. From that point  on to the coast the country is quite level.  Assessing for Next Year.  John Kukiip, ol Rossland, piovin-  cial assessor for the district, was in the  lioundary this week, making out the  assessment rolls on personal and other  property for 'he year 1903. He was  in Phoenix Thursday, and in Greenwood yesterday. The rate of taxation  on personal property is one-half of one  per cent if paid by June 30th next;  otherwise it is three-quarters of one  per cent.  Mr. Kirkup stated, in regaid to the  realty now being advertised by him in  the Rossland World, for non-payment  of taxes, that after the sale, which oc  curs at Rossland October 27th, there  will be added the sale costs, with two  years for redemption, according to the  statute, interest being added at the  nue of twelve percent per annum.  Phoenix School Promotions.  The following pupils have been promoted from the Fourth to the Entrance  class.   The names are in order of merit:  Lizzie Gill, Bertha Heidman, Guy  Ross, Roy Buckless, Stanley Graham  and Stuart Hudson.

C. P. R. Engineers.  Wednesday a number of C. P. R.  engineers, from Nelson, arrived to do  some more surveying for the new Snow-  shoe and Granby spurs, to be built lo  facilitate ore shipments. The right of  way for the i,Soo-foot spur for the  Snowshoe has been cleared, and no  time will be lost in grading and putting  down the steel. This spur will run  below the tunnel ore dump, where the  new 2,000-ton ore bin is to be constructed at once.  No meeting of the city council was  held this! week.  R. L. Boyd staited Thursday on a  camping trip to the Similkameen.  Dr, G. S. Gordon expects to start in  October (or a trip of several weeks to  the east.  Wm. Tomlinsori,'chief clerk at the  Snowshoe mine, spent Sunday and the  forepart of this week in Rossland.  Don't forget the. Harvest Home  entertainment at Hardy Mc-Kenzie  ball.   You'll have a rattling good time.  W. P. Tiernay, of the firm of7Tier-  nay & McPhail, who are doing the-C.  P. R. spur work here, came in fiom  Nelson last Monday.  R. A. C. McNally, the Rossland machinery man, and E. W. Ruff, in the  same business al Rossland, were visitors in camp this week.  James McNulty returned from the  Ollalla section late last week, where he  has been working on his mineral claims,  with very encouraging results.  L. A. Carscallen, representing Wilson, Lytle & Badgerow Co., vinegar  manufacturers of Toronto, spent last  Thursday in Phoenix, with his old  friend, Rev. 'I'. Green.  Reginald Mcintosh, representing.the  Equitable Life of New York, is spending several days in the city. Mr. Mcintosh was formerly in the office of the  B. C. mine, Summit camp.  A. Ji. Morkill, of the Eastern Townships'Bank staff, has returned from a  several weeks' visit to Grand Forks,  and George Ewing, who took his place  here, has gone back to the Forks.  Dr. H. Lewis /ones, one of the recently visiting Snowshoe directors, sails  for Louden from Montieal today by  the steamer Tunisian. Mr. Waterlow  sails from New Yoik October 1 ith by  the Cunard steamer Campania.  Jay P. Graves, general manager of  the (wanby Co., H. N. Galer, assistant to the managers, and Win.

EDITORIAL COMMENT  ' -Evidently   the   provincial   govern  merit will add considerably to its treas  ury by the land tax sales about to be  inaugurated.

Boundary branch on time half  the time.  Chauncey M. Depew has appeared  in a new role.- He has taken to giving  ��� advice, free of charge, to labor unions.  An 'exchange says that Chauncey  should confine himself to after dinner  speeches. _J   ' The Toronto Globe is on the right  Hack when it says the mining interests  must be consulted in the revision of  the tariff. British Columbia has acted  . as a milch cow for the rest of the. Dominion long enough, and it is time for  a change. .-  "  . The conservatives have announced  their'policy and claim to scent victory  in the political air. Incidentally, the  liberals, socialists and progressives also  labor under the impression that they  each have a cinch on the next election.  When it occurs there will be some surprises.      ^   Some persons think the agitation of  the two per cent ore tax matter is a  nuisance. ' Perhaps so, but the tax itself is a greater drawback to low grade  mining. It is not equitable to pay a  tax on labor, steel, powder and the  other commodities that enter into the  cost of mining.  We are told on the best authority  that when the Granby Co. gets its new  60-drill air compressor installed at its  mines, it will be as easy then to mine  5,000 tons of ore per day as it is now  to mine 1,500 tons daily. Greater  things are in store for the Boundary  than have yet been accomplished.  John Houston wants the city of Nelson to buy the electric tramway in that  , city, which recently stopped running  and forfeited its franchise. He thinks  it could be paid for in 20 year 4 per  cent debentures. Probably no man  has done mote for Nelson that Mr.  Houston, although his own nest has  not been feathered as a result.

PROVINCIAL NOTES  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  The wisdom of advertising is apparent to the man who does it well.  Itisbetterto keep on advertising  even if the results are.r.ot seen at the  stait.  - Make your ads shine brightly. A  dim ad steers but few people to your  place of business,  ���  The man who pushes for business  will not fail to find people willing to  listen to his message.  The keen advertisei is always on the  a'ert, and often catches his compeit  tors on the wane. The best way to  "make hay while the sun shines," is to  advertise the most when your competitor is out of the paper.  Neither policy nor profit is found jn  intermittent advertising. The man  who keeps his advertisement and business before the public constantly, systematically and persistently, while just  to his patrons, is he who reaps where  he has sown, and reaps bountifully.  The only way to judge advertising  is by what it will do for the establishment. The man who writes carefully  and studies the needs of his customeis  and his business will put cash value  into his publicity. Don't try to make  a ten dollar profit out of a dollar investment in publicity.  Same Here.  A Missouri newspaper publisher lost  his office by fire. One subscriber,  hearing of the editor's misfortune, advanced $1.59 on his subscription. The  Herald don't want a fire, but it could  appreciate a geneial movement among  its subscribers to pay nparrears in subscription and one year's advance.

The Old Jackdaw's attention has  been drawn to an at tide sent out to  a number of papers from a Greenwood  correspondent last week, wherein the  statement was made that all seven of  the blast furnaces in the three of the  Boundary smelters weie in operation.  This statement, in view of the facts,  is the more remarkable, for the reason  that usually the Greenwood correspondent for outside papers is particu-  laily accurate and reliable in his statements.  As a matter of fact, it is two or  three months or moie since all seven  ol the Boundary blast furnaces were  running at one lime. In the report  above tefeired to the statement was  made that the Granby smeltet had  been updating its four furnaces since  the Sth inst., which was far from the  facts, as the Granby smelter has not  had four furnaces in blast since some  time in June last. Thus, unfortunately for accuiacy, the fabric of the entire  whole stoiy was shattered.  Reference; to the ore slupmenrtable  published by the Pioneer, and collected each week to date, would have  shown that, with an average weekly  tonnage from the Gianby mines ol  about 5,coo tons, the foui furnaces at  the company's smeller, with   a  weekly  To Work Providence Camp  Claims.

An Unprecedented  Offer to our Subscribers.  ��� BOTH NEW AND OLD;  Geoige  S. Waterlow, vice-chairman  of the  English   company owning and  opeiating the Snowshoe mine, who recently spent  two  weeks  in   Phoenix,  stopped a few days in Rossland on his  return nip to London.,, While in Rossland he was seen by a representative  of the Miner in an interesting mannei,  giving his ideas of the. Boundary and  the Snowshoe. ��� Mr. Waterlow corroborated what tie,.had already given the  Pioneer in regard to seducing the ores  of the  Snowshoe mine    Several processes were  u.-ider  consideiation, and  it is likely the directois will take some  action duiing the next several months.  In the meantime, while in the Boundary, Mr.  Waterlow  inspected   smelter  sites near  Cascade, Giand Forks and  Midway, and   took   back with   him to  London propositions along these lines.  Last Tuesday F. C. Bailey, who has  been doing development woik on his  claims in Providence camp for several  months past, left for Spokane, where  he expects to organize a corporation  to exploit four promising properties in  that camp, The claims that will be  included are the Coronation, Gold  Braid, 1'opsy and Sovereign. The  latter is owned by G. \V. Rumberger,  and the other three by Mr. Bailey.  This group is located only 1,500  teet���the dista'nee of one claim���from  the Pi evidence mine, the owners of  which recently received $143 per ton  net from a thiee car shipment of ore  to the Tiail smelter, and in which  prominent Chicago and Spokane capitalists last week took an interest and  will work on a larger scale than hereto-  10 re.  Mr. Bailey has been mining in this  camp for the last several years, and  has every confidence that he has a good  to be  consolidated. This summer most of  his work has been done on the Coro  nation and Gold Biaid, with most en  couraging results. '1 he assays give  fiom $5 to $150 in gold and silver  vaiues, and he believes that with sufficient capital to pioperly exploit the propel ties and open them up, he will have  a mine as good as the Providence. On  Mr. Rumberger's Soveieign also theie  are excellent showings, and the entiie  group, when sufficiently developed,  should prove profitable.  ^X^1 i>V ^V��r ~ ��s-7A*  **- %m kt. * "\v  Ashnola  Smelter, Ltd,  CAPITAL, TWO MILLION DOLLARS.  2,000,000 Shares.
