TARIFF MEN  IN BOUNDARY  Ministers From Ottawa Were  In Phoenix.  Took Testimony in Sitting at  Greenwood.  Last Wednesday the  Boundary d!s  trict was visited by the Dominion Tariff Commission   from   Ottawa,   which  is now making a tour of the west, looking into tariff conditions and   hearing  representations regarding the lowering  or increasing of the  existing customs  duly  on   certain commodities.      The  commission   consists   of Hon.  \V. S.  Fielding, chaiiman, minister of finance;  Hon. L.  1'.  Brodeur,   minister  of inland  revenue; and  Hon  William Tat-  crson, ��� minister of customs, with-John  Hain, secretary to the commission;, R.  B. Verts, sectretary .to   Mr.  Fielding;  R.   A.   Willard, secretary to Mr. Bro-  deur;   R. C. Dunbar and G. O. Ham  inond,   official stenographers,   and; G.  O. Hammond, reporter for the Toronto .'Globe.;    Hon.   Mr.   Paterson  did  not  come   to the Boundary, owing to  indisposition, but went on to Banff.  The ministers went through to.Midway on the C.P.R. and back to Greenwood, where a sitting was held Wednesday morning. After the hearing  they drove to Phoenix, and were the  guests of A B. W... Hodges, superintendent of the Granby Co., being  shown through thymines of the company. Wednesday night they proceeded to Grand Forks via the Great  Northern in a special train. Thursday  they visited the Granby smelting works,  and then proceeded to Banff, on the  main line of the C.P.R., after which  they go on to the Pacific coast, to pursue their investigations.  '"'' - 'At.;the sitting of Wednesday in  Greenwood, the three largest mining  companies in the Boundaty had pre  par<;d a memorial for the commissioners,  and testimony was taken on the subjects presented. The Granby Consolidated was represented by A. B.W.  Hodges, the B. C. Copper Co., by J.  E McAllister, and the Dominion Copper Go. by 'I'. R. Drummond and W.  C. Thomas.      Mr. McAllister presented the petition, and was closely questioned for two hours.      Others   giving |  testimony   were W. C. Thomas, A. B.  W.  Hodges,   Duncan   Mcintosh   and  D. W. Cummins.  .The petition in full was as follows :  To Hon. W. S. Fielding, Hon. Wm.  Patterson, Hon. L, P.Bkodeur,  Tariff Commissioners:  Sirs, ���The expenditure for mining  and smelting in the immediate district  which you are honoring today with  your visit was during the past year in  excess of three millions of dollars. This  industry has been", prosecuted for the  past eight years without any appreciable return for invested capital. In  order -that the industry be developed  to the extent of a small part of its resources more capital is necessary and  this can only be- acquired by achieved  results. We believe that, if some features of the existing tariff be brought  to your attention, you will seethe ad-1 chinery.  visability of reducing the burden in  this respect, in order to foster an im  portant industry in this country.  We would suggest changes   in   the  tariff upon the following items :  Boundary Mining Notes  .MINISTER   OK  HON.  FINANCE.  S.   riKLWlNO,  CHAIRMAN   TARIFF   COMMISSION'.  as is used for mining drills and smelt-��� up to Phoenix. Mr Hodges took them  ing bars, there is a duty of 5%. As all through the Granby mines, giving  suitable steel for this   purpose   is   not j them a ride on a specially constructed  manufactured'in: Canada, we would  suggest the removal of the duty on this  commodity. :  '4. Mining Candles���-We would suggest that the duty of 25% on mining  candlei be reduced one-half. Candles  suitable foi the work are not manufactured in Canada, as evidenced by the ' earnest consideration  fact that with a 25% duty added the! mission  candle expense is less than by using  those of Canadian manufacture.   ���-  5. Rubber Hose���We 'would   suggest the 1 eduction in the duty on rubber hose from 35%   to   20%   for   the'-  same reasons as described.above. |  6. Iron Pipe���By 7 far the greater  part of pipe used comes under the  dutiable size of two inches in diameter, '  observation car in the No 3 levels be  hind a trolly locomotive. I he ministers were much impressed with the  vast scale on which mining is being  carried on in Phoenix, with its output  of 2,000 tons of ore per day. It is believed that the petition will have  by   the   com-  Persannel of the Commission.  Tho chairman of the tin iff commis-  I'sion. is Hon. \V. S. Fielding, minister  ! of finance.      He was born at Halifax,  [N.S., in   184S, and   was   educated   at  ' Acadia university,  of which he is   D.  C". L., and at Queen's, of which he   is  LL. D.

Explosives ��� The purchase of  dynamite in carloads costs in this district: 40%, 15c. ptr lb.; 50%, i6}<k.  per lb.; 60%, iSc. per lb., laid down  here.  Freight on explosives amounts to two  cents per pound from Pacific coast  points in Canada, and the duty is three  cents per pound, the last item amounting to the cost of five cents on every  ton of ore mined in this country. The  explosive which costs 15 cents per  pound laid down here, costs 12 cents  per pound laid down in the mining  district of Salt Lake, Utah.  We would suggest that the duty on  explosives coming into this country be  removed.  2. Structural Iron���On this there is  a duty of 35% which is apparently no  protection, as on the last work of any  size done in structural iron in this section, an American firm, making two  profits to contractors and sub contractors, was able to contract the work  with the high duty paid and still undersell the Canadian manufacturers.  We would therefore suggest the reduction in this item to 20%.  3.

Steel Castings���These are not  manufactured in Canada of a size required in the work. We would, therefore, request the removal of the duty  of 25% on rough and 30% on finished  steel castings.  9. Machinery���In the free list of  machinery for mining and smelting we  Ales M.-Donaid is doing development work on his Big Four gioup, on  lhe Eholt wagon road.  Work has been discontinued on the  E. 1'. U. mine, near Greenwood, to  idmit making of necessary repairs to  the machinery.  The Granby Co. is doing some prospecting on the Monte group, north of  lhe city, being the group acquired from  James Marshall and Thos. Roderick.  A couple of cars of ore are being  shipped by the Skylark again this week  ���one high grade to Nelson and one  second grade to the Granby smelter.  A deal is pending for the bonding  of the Ciacker Jack group of claims,  owned by D. C. Beach, east of Christina lake. About $5,000 has been  spent on the group in development.  A deed is sai 1 to be pending for the  acquirement of a five-sixths interest  in lhe Elk horn mine by Duncan Mcintosh, H. V. Fuller and associates.  The property adjoins the Providence  The boilers at the Gianby mines  are being concentrated and reinstalled  just above the barn of the company,  where they will be kept in readiness  for an emergency, with a supply of  coal handy.  The news is published in Rossland  that Anthony J. McMillan is no longer on the board of directors of the  Snowshoe Gold & Copper Mines, Ltd.,  owning the Snowshoe group of claims  in this camp.  The B. C. Copper Co. has discon  tinued work on the Sunset mine in the  Similkameen, and will prospect some  of the other claims of the group, near  Princeton. A diamond drill is being  installed at the Sunset.  Wm. Yolen Wdliams, in charge of  the development work being done  on the Lakeview and Dividend groups  of eight claims near Ossyoos, under  bond to the Granby Co., says that  about 600 feet of work has been done  in the last three months. Foreman  Rogers has about ten men employed,  W. T. Hunter, of Greenwood, is  understood to have the Carmi mine,  near Beaverdell, West Fork of Kettle  river, under option at $100,000, and  the negotiations are pending with  eastern capitalists to acquire the prop  erty. Carload shipments have given  $205 per ton gross, and the property  has some machinery and a two staniD  mill  Last Tuesday one of the new large  furnaces at the Granby smelter was  blown in, one of the old smaller six  furnaces being blown out to permit  of this. There is not yet sufficient  electrical power available to operate  all eight of the furnaces, and it cannot  be had before the 1st of November at  the earliest. The Granby is treating  more ore than ever before in its history,  nevertheless.  SMELTER SITE  NOT SELECTED  Several Offered  to  Dominion  . Company.    /  Freight  Rates   An  Important  Consideration.  W. C. Thomas, smelter superintendent for the Dominion Copper Co ,  was in the city this week Wednesday,  with the Tariff Commission party. 'lo  the Pioneer, regarding the company's  plans for the erection of a new snidter  in lhe Boundary, Mr. Thomas taid :  "We have had several smelter sites  offered to us, including two at Midway,  one at Grand Forks and one at Boundary City, to say norhing of a site near  Phoenix iiself.    We are not asking for  a bonus, although there has been some  such talk in certain quarters.    But an  important matter is that of freight rates  and   we   are  now taking that up with  the  railways.     A   difference  of even  live^cenls   per ton means a good deal  when we are able  to   treat   1,000  or  1,500   tons  daily, as we intend doing.  Until they know   exactly   where   they  stand on this question, the directors of  the company are not likely to make a  selection of the site."  At Compaav'g Mlnei.  At the Brooklyn group of mines  work is still being prosecuted in a  small way. In the Brooklyn itself the  main shaft has been timbered and  guides put in from the 250 to the 350  foot levels, the skip now running that  far down. Here sinking is going on.  In the raise at the end of the long drift  of the 350 foot level of the Brooklyn,  which is in Idaho ground, the miners  are now up about 50 feet, having some  90 feet yet to go to reach the surface.  At the Rawhide a small force continues busy in the stripping operations,  and also in running a tunnel.,  Maurice M. Johnson, the consulting  engineer," is expected back from"Color-  ado and Utah shortly, when it is likely  that more energetic development will  be taken up. As soon as the mines  arc prepared once more to ship, the  company's old smelter at Bouudary  Falls will be blown in.  Dealb of A. B. Pease.  K.C., having been called to the bar in  1884.

In most of these cases it was maintained that either the goods are not  manufactured at all in Canada, or if  they are manufactured the product is  of such inferior quality that it is more  economical to purchase abroad.  After the close of the sitting, which  was attended by a large number of  those interested in the mining industry, the ministers were shown through  the smelter of the British Columbia  Copper Co , and entertained at lunch  by the superintendent, J. E. McAllister. Accompanied by Duncan Ross  and Hon. Wm.Templeman, they came  M. M. Stephens; secretary-treasurer,  George F.. Dey; executive committee,  the foregoing officers and J. J.

The order  has already been placed for the needed  lumber, some of which has been delivered, and a few men are at work  preparing the foundations of the building, which is to be located immediately j his advanced age  Wednesday evening Aurelius B.  Pease, of Spencer, Mass., father of  Mrs. O. B. Smith, Jr., whose husband  is superintendent of the Granby mines,  died at the Phoenix General Hospital  of blood poisoning. The remains were  taken to Spokane Thursday by Mr.  Smith, and will later be taken back to  Massachusetts for interment. A short  funeral service was held for the family  by Rev. Whittaker before the remains  were taken to the Great Northern  train.  Mr. and Mrs. Pease came out  from  New England last June to  visit  their  son and daughter, expecting to  spend  the  summer  here     About  a  month  I later Mr. Pease was  taken   down, and  I for the last two months it has been   a  , fight against the grim reaper.    He was  I about 67 years of age   when   he died,  making it harder  to  in front of the old skating   ring.     The  contract calls for it   to   be   completed  by November 15th.

Once again the LeRoi mine," at  Rossland, is very much in the public  eye, from the manipulation that has  been going on regarding- the property  on the other side of the fishing pond.  For months it has been the laudable  desire of the Canadian Smelting Works  at Trail, * owned by the C.P.R., to secure the tonnage of the big LeRoi  mine for that smelter. In the course  of this attempt, a merger, with the  other large shippers in Rossland wis  proposed. - Then the'merger assumed  greater proportions,' and many other  properties were to be taken in, including the Snowshoe mine in Phoenix  camp.  People is Rossland seem to believe  that at last a new day is dawning for  that camp, and we sincerely trust that  it is so. The big mines there have  been used as shuttlecocks on the stock  exchanges till it is little wonder that  they are not in good repute. If the  new arrangement results in actually saving money to the LeRoi company in  the long run, the shareholders will get  the benefit.  to be demonstrated. What the shareholders themselves will say is also another interesting question.  O-  WHAT EDITORS SAY  \\    Lone at Ottawa.- ���The Free Press  complains that Ottawa is a crook resort.

But finally the merger seemed to be  off, when it was announced that C. P.  R. interests had suddenly secured the  Centre Star and War Eagle mines.  Simultaneously, Manager Aldridge, of  the Trail smelter, went to London, to  see what could be done with the direc  tors of the JLeRor, and he succeeded  in getting A. J. McMillan superceded  in the office of managing director, and  the-announcement followed quickly  that a contract' had been made with  the Trail smelter to treat LeRoi ores  for three years, at $3 per ton.  Mayor Houston, of Nelson, has  been missing for some seven or eight  .weeks, and his best friends do not  seem to know what has become of the  strenuous chief executive of the Queen  City of the Kootenays. He is pretty  sure to turn up some day, however,  after his little vacation and relaxation,  and then things will be doing again in  the Kootenay capital, when there will  be plenty of copy for the local papers.

Irrespective   of   party  MIDWAY & VERNON  Mr. McMillan had been opposed to  this arrangement, as it meant the  shutting-down of the LeRoi's North-  port smelter, in which the company  several hundred thousand dollars invested, and naturally the Great Northern, who had the sole hauling of Le  Roi ores to Northport, did not wish to  lose that trade. However, Mr. McMillan was overruled in London, and  for the present at least, the. Oft*. R;  hai won out in this interesting gime-^-  interesting even in the Boundary.  There is one peculiar/ phase of the  situation, and that isJnat the directors  made this arrangement with the C. P.  R. on the eve of the annual shareholders meeting of the LeRoi. Without giving the LeRoi shareholders a  say in the matter, they virtually threw  away an investment that cost many  hundred thousand dollars at North-  port, Perhaps the advantages to be  obuined by the new arrangement were  so great that they were justified in doing this���and perhaps not. At any  rate, the shareholders had nothing  whatever to say about the matter, and j  affiliations, the gentlemen were accorded a warm welcome here, as was  fitting and proper.- They were here as  a tariff commission, and saw many  things of which they had but a comparatively vague idea betore.  position occupied by the Boundary as  a mineral producer will lose nothing of  its importance from this visit.

Chief Engineer Lackie left  la��t week to go over the proposed  route and allot work for the engineers.  One party is at present working between Rock Creek and Westbridge and  another party is working from that  point up the West Fork towards Wilkinson creek, a few miles above Carmi.  Engineer Snow will arrive this week to  take up the work from Wilkinson creek  north, over the summit, to meet the  party under Engineer Frank Fletcher,  now woiking south from Vernon. This  covers the whole territory so far as  locating the line is concerned.  Contracts have been let between  Midway and Rock Creek and the wotk  of construction is going along as fast  as possible, taking into consideration  the difficulty in securing labor. The  railway will follow the north side of  Kettle river to a point near W-.stbridge.  For the first sixty miles, between  Midway and Carmi, the line will bean  easy one to consliucr, the grade being  uniform with few difficuliies in the  form of rock bluffs. Over the summit  between Carmi and Okanagan Mission  the usual engineering difficulties in a  mountainous country will have to be  overcome. From the Mission to Vernon no serious difficulties will be encountered.  Construction  on   the   first   twenty  miles    between   Midway   and    West-  bridge will be completed by   the   end  1'he! the   present   year.���Boundary   Creek  Times.

He  is making personal trips to the various  mining districts surrounding Spokane,  and expects to have a better collection  01 minerals than ever before by the  tirrje the fair opens, on October 9th.  ms  Mr. Alexander wjs the original locator of the Belts and  Hesperus mines  on Hardy mountain,   which  are  now  being  actively   operated   by a strong  Chicago company,' and   on   this   visit  to the Boundary took a run over there  to see what had been accomplished at  these promising claims since he plant  ed   the   first   location   stakes..on   the  claims   several   years   ago.    The   first  time he .came into the Boundary,  like  all .prospectors then, he was forced to  walk or take  the   Lack   of a  cayuse.  This time he was able to come here in  a more comfortable manner, in one of  J a nit s J. Hill's coaches.      He was indeed   surprised   to  see the   advances  made  in   this  section in  the last few  years.  flyer. At present there are not more  than 50 specimens in the cabinet, but  Mr. Legg will take pleasure in giving  room to others that may be furnished  him from Boundary mines.

MIDWAY MEETING  OF THE PIONEERS  R.  The effort continues in Spokant to  induce Win. R. Hearst to establish a  morning daily there, in opposition to  the Spokesman-Review. __ It is said  that if $75,000 per annum can be  guaranteed in patronage, it will le a  yo. The statement is also made that  the income of the "Spokesman-Review  and Chronicle, both owned by W H.  Cowles, is over $700,000 per annum  We c?n remember when it wa< the  regular thing for the Spokane Morninf:  Review to run behind about $10,000  per year.  Fred Simpson, of the Cranbrook  Herald, is undoubtedly getting out the  best weekly paper in the province���bar  none. He prints eight large pages  every week, chock full of news of the  district, and mightly little escapes his  eagle eye. Simpson knows how to  edit a good paper and he does it. The  !>est of it is that bis effor'.s seem to be  appreciated locally.  ��� �����' '   . ���'     ���  Peck..McSweyn ���"���ays in the Golden  Star that the Doukhobors employed  on the Kootenay Central are likely to  go on strike and carry off the wheelbarrows and other grading apparatus.

It   is   cquallv certain that lhe most he  will accomplish  will be to derive some  cheap notoriety during   election  campaigns. ;  It is estimated by close observers  that an average of 3,000 kisses are exchanged daily at the railway stations  at Spokane. All varieties and shades  of osculations are observed at the  depots, says an exchange. The kisses  range from the long drawn out and  strenuous kind, a la Olga Nethersole,  to the frigid peck of the austere old  maid. Bordering between these are  the warm, medium and prefunctory  varieties. Girls at a railway station  do not seem to care who sees them kiss,  while at any other place they would  yell murder if they thought there was  anyone within 100 yards. It sure  beats all.  MS  Chief of Police Docksteader has, for  some time, been endeavoring to effectually rid the city of a string of mendicants, who seem to think that residents  of Phoenix are legitimate prey. He  states that, upon investigation, most of  these people are frauds and should not  be encouraged in their imposition on  the public generally. Only last week  the chief ran a young woman out of  town, who had been given similar  treatment in Nelson and Grand Forks  for good and sufficient cause, If citizens generally will not assist these  people, the chief thinks it will not be  so difficult for him to keep them out.  ��M  C.

The scene also partook of the pa-'  thetic, for while many of those present were men still in their prime, the  white hairs and bent forms of othtrs  suggested the weary trail and lonely  campfire.  John East was elected president and  John R. Jackson secretary for the ensuing term.  The Kettle River and South Okanagan Pioneers' association was formed  at Thomas .Wake's hotel in Boundary  Falls on March 1, 1900. The chiel  promoters were Thomas,McAulcy, Dr.  Jakes, Thomas Walsh, W. J. Nelson,  John East, James D.,Kerr aiid Angus  K. Stuart. The last named gentleman is distinctly the pioneer news  paper man of the district, having established the first newspapers in  Vernon, Fairview and Midway in the  order named.  The object is to keep alive the spirit  of former days and to insure to its  membership proper care in declining  years and a respectable burial. Incidentally, a pleasant evening twice a  year, when stories are told and reinin  iscences exchanged, comes pot amiss.  The qualifications for membership  are residence in the district prior to  1895, while anyone resident prior to  i860 may be an honorary member.  The only honorary member at present  is Charles Dietz, who came to the country in 1857, entering through the Col-  ville valley, at that time the home of  hostile Indians. Charles/ Dcitz is  spending his declining years in comfort at Rock Creek. His stories of  early life and hardship'are told with  modesty and are very pleasing.  The only other honorary member  the society has ever had. was John  Thornton, "Jolly Jack." He came in  1859, two years later than Deitz. Last  year Jolly Jack reached the end of the  trail, his later years having been marked t>y the bestowal of many acts of  kindness by associates. For many  years he lived in a log cabin between  Midway and Greenwood, on Boundary  creek, making a living lor Himself and  family in placer mining, iu wlvat is  not generally consideied a promising  placer district.  The association embraces about 40  members, many of whom ''are prominent in mining and business circles.  % Gait Coal  ��       .   ^' ������        . delivered to any part of  ��\ the city.

The theatre goers of Phoenix have  long held in high esteem that excellent  actor, Mr. Harold Nelson. Hi* histrionic gifts are far beyond the ordinary  and his manage"-,; C. P. Walker, has  always provided him with the very best  equipment possible. Therefore, local  lovers of the drama will be pleased to  learn that Mr; Harold Nelson, supported by Clifford Lane Bruce, Helen  Scott, William Blake, and a specially  strong company will appear at the  Miners' Union hall on Monday, Sept.  Mr. Nelson's offering this time will  be the romantic drama Prince Otto,  which was dramatized from Robert  Louis Stevenson's charming novel of  the same name, by Otis Skinner, and  played by him in New York, Chicago,  Boston and all the other large cities of  the United States. As Mr. Nelson  and Mr. Skinner, are very much alike  in appearance, temperament and train  ing, the role of Prince Otto should  prove a particularly good vehicle for  Mr. Nelson.  Manager C. P. Walker has given the  play a most elaborate production in  the matter of scenery and general  equipment. The costumes are rich in  texture and coloring, and decidedly  picturesque in design.  Carload of Fireworks.  Manager Robert H. Cosgroveofthe  Spokane Interstate fair has received  word of the shipment of a full carload  of high class fireworks from the Pain  factory at Manhattan Beach, N. Y.  These fireworks will be used to give  the "Fall of Port Arthur," which will  be part of the night shows of the fair  which will be given on the fair grounds  in the eastern part of Spokane. The  pyrotechnic display will be the most  brilliant ever seen west of St. Paul.  The night shows promise to be the  big feature of this year's fair at Spokane, and are expected to draw bigger  crowds than come to the day-light exhibitions. ^   Fsrniire, Hachinlo*, Sportsnaal  To heal and (often the ikin ond rentere greaac  oil and ruat alaln*. paint and and earth, etc., uac  the "Man**r Mcclualc'a".
