MINES  1906 Figures Already Exceed  Those of 1905.  E. Jacobs Contributes Valuable  Data on B. C.'s Progress.  "British Columbia's mineral production this year promises to considerably  exceed that of any previous year in the  history of mining in the province," said  E. Jacobs, the conservative editor of  the B C. Mining Record, when asked  this week by the Nelson Daily News  for an opinion concerning the progress  made by the mining industry in 1906.  "The statistics published weekly giye  particulars of production in the chief  lode mining districts of the province,  the aggregate tonnage of which is  now nearly 1,200,000 tons. Add to this  the production of the coast districts  and Hedley camp, Similkameen, and  a grand total of between 1,300,000  and 1,400,000 tons for the eight expired months of the year will be obtained. Further, there is the increase  in the average prices of silver, lead and  copper for 1906, as compared with  1905, to take into account when estimating the value of the year's production.  Taking the quantity of these several  metals produced last year and calculating the enhanced value at this year's  average prices, it will be found that  even if the production for the current  year were to show no increase in quantity, the value would be fully $1,800,-  000 greater than that of 1905. But  when it is remembered that the quantity of ore produced this year by the  lode mines of the province has already  exceeded that of the whole of last year,  it will be evident that if nothing occurs  to interrupt production during the unexpired portion of the year, it will be  quite reasonable to look for a considerable increase in quantity and a larger  increase in total value, the latter as the  result of the higher average prices for  the year above referred to.  "While no statistics of the current  year's production of placer gold are as  yet available, there is good reason to  also look for an increase in this direction, conditions having been generally  favorable to a larger recovery of gold  in the placer mining districts during  season now drawing to a close than in  1905.  "But it is not the largely increased  production of the year that will most  impress capitalists with the progress  and prosperity of British Columbia's  mineral industry; it is rather the convincing evidence afforded by the payment of a comparatively large sum of  money in dividends that will most  strongly appeal to them. When it  shall become widely known that a number of British Columbia's mines are at  last in a position to distribute profits  periodically, capital will not be difficult  to obtain for promising mining purposes. And since it is capital for development that is most needed to bring  about the utilization of the enormous  mineral resources of the province on a  much larger scale, it is certainly gratifying to at last find conditions becoming favorable to the encouragement of  capitalists to put money into mining in  the province. While a total distribution  of between $2,000,000 and $3,000,000  of bona fide earned profits this year  may not be a very large showing, it is  an earnest that the corner has at length  been turned and that mining and  smelting in British Columbia are now  offering consideiable inducements to  capitalists to e*ngage in these industries  in the province."  C. H. Allen, of Los Angeles, general agent for the Western Masons' Mutual Life Association, spent several  days in the city this week.  George C. Hodge, of Nelson, district superintendent of the B. C. Telephone Co., Ltd., stopped over here  Tuesday night, on a trip of inspection.  Charles Endress, of  Petrolia, Ontario, arrived Sunday  evening,   and has  accepted the   position   of  manager of  the local branch   of the  Binns   furni  ture store.  F. S. Keith, managing editor of  Canadian Machinery, was a visitor  here Saturday with the Canadian civil  engineers, and went over the Granby  mines with the party.  James Anderson and James , McAr-  dle, owners of the Anderson-McArdle  building on Old Ironsides avenue, formerly the Morrison-Anderson building, were here Sunday Irom Grand  Forks. They expect to do some extensive repairing to the property shortly-  Christopher W. Greer, who lived  in Phoenix several years, and a year  and a half ago went to the Kamloops  district and took up some farming  land, has returned to Phoenix to spend  the winter. He says that members of  the Phoenix contingent now living  near Kamloops are well pleased with  the outlook.  COAL MINES  ARE NOW IDLE  Crow's   Nest Pass  Coal  Men Again Strike.  Co.  Equitable Solution of Trouble  Hoped for Soon.  Boundary Mining Notes  At the Strathmore the mine improves with greater depth, work now  being done at the 140-foot level and  showing up some fine ore bodies..  Development work was started on  the E. P. U. mine, near Greenwood,'  this week, by the syndicate that recently took a bond on the property.  The Dominion Copper company  will work the Gloucester group in  Franklin camp all winter, and it is  now building a winter camp with .that  end in view.  COPPER  IS STARTING  Smelter  Spokane Fair  In Full Blast.  The Spokane Interstate fair opened  last Monday morning for two weeks.  On that day the one fare return rate  on all railroads was in effnet, with the  result that greater crowds than ever before took advantage of the occasion to  visit the metropolis of the Inland Empire.  Those who have already attended  the fair state that it is the best yet, in  almost every 'department, and the attendance has been much greater than  at any previous event in the Falls City.  British Columbia contributed its usual  large contingent, the trains being uncomfortably crowded. The fair continues another week, the railway rate  being one and a third fare for the  round trip, which means $S.o5 from  Phoenix, including one admission to  the fair, a coupon for admission being  attached to each ticket sold.  C.E.'S AT MINES  AND SMELTERS  Canadian Society   Here  Saturday.  Last  Party Visited Greenwood and  Grand Forks.  COMING AND GOING  His Worship, Mayor Rumberger,  has been taking in the Spokane Interstate fair this week.  Noble Binns, of Trail, spent two or  three days this week in this city, look-  after his business interests.  J. E. W. Thompson left Monday for  a trip that will take him as far east as  Oxbow, Alberta, to be gone several  weeks.  K. H. Karatofsky went to Spokane  Sunday, expecting to be gone a month  and to visit his cousin in Seattle before  returning.  Manager Thos. R. Drummond, of  the Dominion Copper Co., is now  confined to his residence in Greenwood by typhoid  fever.  W. C. Thomas, superintendent of  the Dominion Copper Co.'s Boundary  Falls smelter, was expected to leave  New York on his return trip to the  Boundary this week.  C. B. Dunster, a mining engineer  from Marquette, Mich., who has been  inspecting properties in Franklin camp,  was a visitor here Saturday, and went  through the Granby mines, which he  said were the largest ore bodies of the  kind he had ever seen.  Last Saturday Phoenix was visited  by the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, who were making a trip through  the west in a large party. It was not  possible to engage rooms at the hotels  here for the 50 or 60 members of the  party, owing to all of the local hos-  telries being already lull, so they  stopped over in Grand Forks two  nights and while there saw the Granby smelter. They arrived here at 11  a. m., and were at once served with an  excellent lunch at the Deane hotel.  After that they inspected the Granby  mines, being escorted oySupts.Hodges  and Smith, Mayor Rumberger and  others.  Some of the members of the party-  are in the front r.mks in their profession  in the Dominion, but they had little  idea of the extent of the mining and  smelting operations being carried on  in the Boundary country, and were  surprised and pleased when they inspected the complete mining and reduction plants in Grand Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix.  At Greenwood they were met by a  delegation of members of lhe city  council and citizens, and the ladies  and others were taken in carriages to  see the Providence and Strathmore  mines and the B. C. Copper Co.'s and  Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter, the  latter rapidly approaching the completion of its reconstruction and enlargement, while still others were taken to  the B. C. Copper Co.'s Mother Lode  mine by special train, and viewed the  open quarries of that property.  In the evening a banquet was tendered the visitors at the Imperial hotel,  Greenwood, covers being laid for 72,  and speeches were made by G. A.  Frost, editor of the Engineering News,  of New York; Acting Mayor Bunting,  of Greenwood; Col. Ruttan, of Winnipeg.; Dr. J. B. Porter, of McC.ill:  Frederick Kefier, of the B. C. Copper  Co.; Alex Miller, of the Strathmoorc  mine,; C. H. Mitchell, of the great  power plant at Niagara; J. E. McAllister, of the B. C. Copper Co.: C  B. Smith, of the Ontario hydro-electric  commission; E. G. Warren of tlu  Greenwood Electric Co., W.G. Gaunci  and others.  The party spent Saturday night at  Grand Forks, and then proceeded di  rectly east by the Crow's Nest Pass-  route,  ��� With every mine in the Kootenays  and Yale operating with a full complement of men, with the prices of the  metals at a satisfactory point, and with  general industrial peace prevailing all  over southeastern British Columbia, it  was to be hoped that no cloud would  arise on the horizon, even temporarily.  But, over in Fernie, where the coal is  mined which enables all the smelters  of the Kootenays and Boundary to operate, in Fernie, where there have been  so many labor troubles heretofore,  there is now a little difficulty, but  which it is earnestly hoped and believed may be amicably arranged before it reaches serious proportions.  Last Monday the men employed by  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company  at its Coal creek mines, declined to  resume woik, on the alleged ground  that they would not longer labor with  non-union men. This was the pub  lished statement. That day but 92  out of about 900 miners, reported for  work, the S08 have since been idle  pending a discussion and settlement of  the controversy.  G. G. S. Lindsay, the general manager of the company, on his part, asserts that the men have deliberately  broken the agreement entered into by  the company and the members of  Gladstone Union 2314, U. M. W. of  A., of May, 1905. For the union Sec  retary Thos. Biggs states in a circular  that it is the company that has broken  its agreement in several particulars.  Just what the outcome of the matter .will be cannot be foretold at this  time, but there is an impression that  the strike was not authorized by President Mitchell, of the United Mine  Workers of America, and that the local union officials exceeded their authority in ordering the strike, and will  find it wise to come to an agreement  with Mr. Lindsay. On his part, Mr.  Lindsay wishes to know definitely it  he can rely on the local un:on to keep  an agreement when once signed.  It will be remembered that the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. has had  more or less trouble with its employees  for the last several years, whatever the  real cause may be. Whether they are  a particularly hard class to get along  with or whether it is the company's  fault, is a question, but it would seem  that, if there was a disposition on both  sides to meet the other, on reasonable  grounds, the difference would soon be  settled.  In the Boundary the  Granby   Con  George \V. Cornish, of Greenwood,  who had a fine Boundary ore exhibit  at the Nelson fair, has taken the entire collection ol ores to the Spokane  fair, where it is now on exhibition.  An extension of the bond on the  Meadow Lark has been secured by the  syndicate now operating that Skylark  camp property, and the reports from  the mine are said to be   encourageing.  Several of the visiting members of  the Canadian engineers' party, which  visited Phoenix and Greenwood on  Saturday last, became identified with  the high grade mining industry of the  Boundary.  The first   carload   of machinery for  Will  Blow  Week.  in   Next  200 Men at the Mother Lode  Mine.  the new 30-drill air compressor for  the Dominion Copper. Co._, for the  company's Phoenix mines, has been  shipped by the Canadian Rand Drill  Co., from Sherbrooke, Que.  Rumors have been current for some  time regarding the resumption of operations at the Cariboo-McKinney mine,  in Camp McKinney. This property  was closed over two years ago, after  paying half a million in dividends.  Alex Robinson, who was the successful tenderer for extending the tunnel on the Golconda 175 feet, which  will give it a depth of 700 feet, has begun work on the contract, it being in  charge of J. Cleveland Haas, the well  known Spokane mining engineer.  The work of enlarging and improving the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter at Boundary Falls is making satisfactory progress. Preparations for enlarging the ore bins are now under way  and preparations are also being made  for the new crushing plant, which will  have sufficient capacity to handle the  entire output of the company's mines.  It is not expected that electric power  will be available much before the end  of the .year, and steam will continue to  be used in the mean time.  Lome A. Campbell, manager of the  West Kootenay Power and Light Co.,  was here Sunday morning, inspecting  the work of installation going on at the  sub-station here, leaving for Rossland  on that morning's train.  solidated secures its entire coke supply from the Crow's Nest Coal Co.  while the Dominion Copper Co. gets  its coke from the International Coal  & Coke Co. at Coleman, and the B.C.  Copper Co. from Blairmore, where no  trouble whatever exists. A protracted strike would seriously cripple the  first mentioned concern, but those  best informed think that wiser counsels  will eventually prevail, and that a  satisfactory agreement will soon be  reached.  SUl'T.   HODGKS ON TIIK   SITUATION.  Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Con  solidated, who was in camp yesterday,  stated that if the strike was not settled  shortly, he would find it necessary to  blow out some of the furnaces at the  Granby smelter, but that his advices  from Fernie were favorable to a settle  ment and a resumption of work at an  early date. The Granby smeltet usually finds use for about 300 tons ot  coke daily, but unless more is foith  coming soon, next week will see at  least some of the furnaces blown out.  There is one other recourse, temporarily, the same that was taken two years  ago when there was a labor strike at  the same coal mines. Then some coke  was secured a the coast, and some  in the state of Washington, at Roslyn.  This supply, however, is not usually  large enough, and it is much more expensive than the local supply, on account of the distance it must be hauled.  However, it could be used for a short  time, if necessary.  Back From Old England.  Last June Rev. C. Wellesley tt'hit-  taker, pastor of the local Methodist  church, went to Manchester, England,  his old home, on a visit, intending to  return about the end of September.  The Pioneer i.s in receipt of a communication fiom Mr. Whittaker, from  Quebec, stating that hi.- had arrived  safely on this side of the water, and  expects to occupy his pulpit, and havt  the pleasure of meeting bis congrega  tion here again, tomorrow.

Mueller, manager of the  Chicago British Columbia Mining Co.'s  interests in the Boundary, left Wednesday for a month's visit to Chicago, being called by important personal matters. Work continues on the company's Crescent fraction claim in Skylark  camp.  Today the B. C. Copper Co. is unloading the first ore and coke for blowing in the first of the three big furnaces of the enlarged smelter. By early  next week, according to the statement  of J. E. McAllister, the manager, to  the Pioneer yesterday, the first Turnace  will be blown in, and a few days after  that the second furnace will be placed  in blast, the two giving a tonnage of  some ��� 1,200 tons a day, if all goes  well. The third furnace is expected to  be in use by the time that the Bon  nington power station is ready to supply the electric energy needed���a matter of some 40 days, according to L.  A. Campbell, the manager of that  concern.  Many unforeseen delays have occurred to delay the starting of the rebuilt plant, but before another issue of  the Pioneer appears, it should be doing  business on a greater scale than ever  before in its history.  At   the   company's    Mother   Lode  mine, in Deadwood camp, the greatest  activity has prevailed   of late,   in preparing   for  the   increased   output  as  soon as the smelter   could   receive   it.  At present about  200 men   are on the  payroll, and the first cars will be loaded with ore   today.    A   steam   shovel  from the C. P. R. will load the 5,000  tons oT ore which   has   been   dumped  on the  ground  since the  smelter was  unable  to    accept    ore  a couple   of  months   since,   and   some   time   next  week long strings of loaded ore dumps  will begin   their daily   trips   down the  four-mile  hill   to the   smelting works.  To   accommodate    the    increased  force the company has erected an additional three story bunk house, with 3;  rooms, which is  just   completed,   besides a number of cottages for married  employees. Supt. Holman is now practically ready to   begin the  output   of  the larger tonnage required by the enlarged smelter of the co mpany.  Jay P. Graves, the general manager  of the Granby Consolidated, is now in  New York, to attend the annual general meeting of the company, to be  held there next week.  J. L. and Mrs. Martin r< turned  Wednesday from a ten days' visit to  Spokane, taking in the Interstate fair  before returning. Cecil Martin is now  taking a course in mining and metallurgy at the State College at Pullman,  Wash. While absent Mr. Martin  visited the Carney group of copper  claims in the Coeur d'Alenes, in which  he is interested.  *��r��;��^IM>l*^''**>����*��^^***^.��>'*'-*^  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.

And so the fairs, as a rule, have an  excellent patronage, and the people at  large, while they see many things they  have seen before, learn something  new, have a good time, spend their  money and return home ready for business once more.  Week before last Kaslo had its first  fair, last week Nelson had its turn,  this week and next Spokane and New  Westminster are having their turn, and  throughout British Columbia there  have been a dozen other smaller fairs,  but of large importance locally. Aside  from the advantage to the place where  a fair is held, it is a good thing, even  though some visitors do run up against  sure thing games and schemes to catch  the nible dollar. Fairs give the people at large a much broader idea of the  country they are living in, to say nothing of the good they do in attracting  investment from strangers and those  who are looking for openings in agri  culture, horticulture, mining, etc.  Every year it is becoming more and  more the custom for parties of prominent men to include the Boundary  country in their itinerary when making  a trip through the west. In some parts  pf the east, of course, otherwise well-  informed business men are yet ignorant of this country and its trade and  mineral producing possibilities, and  they overlook the Boundary district in  laying out their trip; but their number  is each year becoming smaller, be it  said to their credit. To this class be  longs the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, just now taking in other  parts of British Columbia, but who  will not come into the Boundary this  time. However, it is more their loss  than ours.  It is certainly an  excellent plan to  have parties like the Spokane  Chamber of Commerce of a couple of weeks  ago, and the Canadian Society of Civil  Engineers of last  week,   make  excursions to the Boundary country,   to see  for themselves what  is being done in  the line of successfully wresting the  treasures from Mother Earth.    Invariably   members  of such  parties  have  their eyes opened at sight of the unusually large mineral deposits here and  the modern methods of extracting and  smelting  them.    It is good for them  and will do the Boundary no harm.  There is every reason for knowing  that visits made here in the past by i  capable, successful business men have  been fruitful in no small degree, in  fact, one can see the fruits of such visits today in the enhanced activity now  prevailing in this section of the province. Therefore, it is well to encourage such visits, to extend every courtesy to the visitors in the future as in the  past, and to give them all the information they may desire regarding the opportunities for profitable investment in  this  district.    And   the  opportunities  SELECTS 4,5M,0M ACRES OP LAND.  D#>Mia"*i doveriaeat sua sarveyln Norb-  era British Columh'a.  The selection of 4,500,000 acres of  land in the northeastern part of British  GoUimhia for the Dominion government has just been concluded, after  two years' of hard labor, by Mr. John  A. Macdonell, D. L. S., the well  known Winnipeg surveyor, who is now  on his way to Ottawa to report.  It was in the fall of 1904 that the  Macdonell party left civilization at Edmonton, and travelling by the Slave  lake, made its way to Dunvegan, where  it put in the winter, and in the spring  of 1905 moved up to Fort St. John,  where it spent nearly all summer putting up feed for the horses and establishing headquarters camps. In the  spring of the present year, after having  gathered all the information available,  the selection was commenced. Mr.  Macdonell was restricted only by the  Laird river on the east and the northern boundary on the north, but he selected all his land in the vicinity of the  Peace river, and he believes that practically every acre of it will eventually  become productive farming land.  Al! who are familiar with the story  of confederation know the story of this  land. At the time British Columbia  went into the Dominion, as one of the  terms of agreement it was provided  that the province should vest in the  Dominion ten million acres of its lands  which the Dominion proposed to apply to the subsidy granted to the Canadian Pacific Railway.  A  200-ton   mill is to be erecied at  the Blue Bell mine on Kootenay lake'  Boston papers lait week had the following about a well known resident of  the Boundary now on the Atlantic  coast:  W. C. Thomas, smelter superintendent of the Dominion Copper Co., is  now East. He has been examining  the new furnace which has been set up  at Allentown, Pa., by the Traylor Engineering Co. for the Dominion Copper Co.    lie says:  "Mining ennditions in the Boundary were never more prosperous than at  the present time, the natural consequence of a 19 cent copper market.  "The output of copper in the Boundary district this year should be over  30,000,000 pounds, secured at a cost  of about nine cents per pound, f. o. b.  British Columbia. There are now three  companies operating upon an extensive  scale, the Granby, Dominion Copper  and British Columbia Copper companies. There are also a number of  small companies. The Granby Co. is  now treating about 2500 tons of ore  per day, and is increasing its smelter  capacity, so that by the first of the  year it should be treating 3000 toni  per day.  ���'As is well known, the Boundary  ores are of extremly low grade, but the  character of the deposits is such that  the ore can be mined at a remarkably  low cost, principally by quarrying. The  ores contain about 26 pounds of cop  per to the ton of rock, and gold and  silver values average about $1.50 per  ton. A smelter recovery of from 21 to  23 pounds of copper is secured and  practically all the gold and silver values. Low mining costs, and the fact  that these ores are largely self-fluxing,  admit of economical smelting, and the  fact that the ores are s*elf-fluxing enables the smelter treatment of a large  tonnage per furnace  "The Granby Co. has demonstrated  without question,-that copper mining  in the Boundary is a very profitable  operation even on-a low copper mar  ket. It is figured that even with copper selling at 13 cents per pound (a  price not likely for some time to come)  there is a profit of at least $1 per ton  in treating these ores.  "The Dominion Copper Co. has  been operating under the present management for nine months, but we have  our mines well developed, with ore  blocked out for more than ten years at  the rate of 1300 tons per day, a good  smelting plant which we are now materially enlarging, and $750,000 cash  available for the treasury.  "I am now in New York examining  our new furnace, which will be shipped  to the Boundary this week. With this  new furnace our output will be increased 700 tons per day, which will give  us a total capacity of 1300 tons per  day, or au absolute average of 1200  tons allowing for shut downs.  "This new furnace will be the largest that has been shipped into the  Boundary country, being 255 inches  by 46 inches, with a depth of 18 feet  between floors. It is equipped with  the Giroux hot top blast and will be  fed automatically by side dump cars.-  This furnace will effect a saving in labor and fuel of about $100 per day,  which is a matter of $36,000 per year,  or one-third of a cent per pound on  our proposed increased output.  "With our new furnace we should  be able to produce from 8,000,000 to  8,500,000 pounds of copper per annum.  "At present, the smelter and mines  are being operated by steam power.  We will shortly be operating entirely  with electric power, at a saving in power costs of about $100,000 per annum.  "With the installation of our new  furnace we expect to produce copper  at a cost of not over 8 cents per pound,  f. o. b. Boundary.  "We do not intend to be satisfied,  however, with a production of 8,500,-  000 pounds of copper per annum. Our  THE   PHOENIX   PIONEER.  mines are capable of production the  equal of any company in the Boundary, and as we have recently purchased  additional property at our smelter site,  there is every reason to anticipate that  our capacity will be still further increased."

Simpson always seems to be  able to take one more important duty  on his shoulders Not content with  being the publisher of Cranbrook's excellent Herald he also became half  owner of the Herald at Lethbridge,  another money making weekly. Then  he was elected grand master of the  Odd Fellows of British Columbia, following which he was appointed organizer for the Liberals for the interior of  this province. And to cap it all last  week he was elected president of the  Alberta Press Association at its first  annual meeting, heldat Medicine Hat,  Alberta. From this it can be seen  that the "Old Man" is going some.  Read the announcements of your  merchants in this issue. ��� Many a dollar has been saved by a careful perusal  of a merchant's ad. When a business  man advertises for your patronage he  not only has a line of goods that  "speaks" but there may be some article or articles listed that you desire  and that it may be advantageous to buy  at this time.  MS  Don't ask the editor to rebuke every evil in the city and community,  but when convinced that such duties  need attending to, write an article to  the paper yourself, and sign your name  to it for publication. The man who  is too big a coward to thus express an  opinion, is the very one who will stand  on the corner and talk loudly about  the cowardice of the editor.  Ml  A printing office, says a writer, is usually considered a rather tou^h place  and the newspaper worker a mighty  bad man. Statistics, however, do not  bear out that idea. Of 3,800 in the  Texas penitentiary, there is not a printer or a newspaper man, while there  are ministers, lawyers, music-teachers,  doctors, bankers, cooks, photographers,  barbers and members of the other professions and callings. The printer gets  a bad name because the nature of his  business teaches him to detect shams,  and scorn hypocrites.  MS  A Peterboro paper reports that a  strange fish that has horns, was caught  near there recently. The explanation  is made that one of the party of fishermen was* man named Seagram.  MS  A penny pos'age bill has been introduced into the Australian Parliament  by the postmaster-general. It is intended to apply to Australia and other  portions of the Empire, and should it  pass, the law will become operative on  October 1st. It will be a long time,  apparently, before the postmaster-general of Canada makes a similar attempt  for the benefit of the people ot the Dominion. He prefers to be able to  boast of a surplus of a million or so, to  improving and extending the service.  M*  Announcement is made by the editor of the Mail-Herald at Revelstoke,  that he will shortly put an automobile  in commisssion to facilitate him in his  work. It is pleasant to note that at  least one newspaper man in the province is so prosperous that he can afford  the luxury of a gas buggy.  MS  What a lot of provincial newspapers  are responsible for the statement that  an election is to be brought off in this  province in December,, and of course  they are are all Grit papers, too, it need  hardly be remarked. They ttot out this  story so often, without a semblance of  truth in it, that by next year, when an  election is really coming on, half of  their Liberal leaders will not believe it  after being fooled repeatedly.  gaent only. Egypt is a brilliant spot  compared to the Phoenix G. N. station  when the passenger train arrives in the  evening. It is a disgrace to Mr. Hill  and to his management.  MS  Supt. Morgan, when asked why the  station here was not lighted in some|  way, intimated that the rates for electric lighting in Phoenix were prohibitive���in fact, something like railway  freight rates to Phoenix. But the  C. P. R. uses electricity to light its  Phoenix depot, and has no arrivals or  departures of passenger trains after  dark, either. Mr. Hill may be able  to give the C.P.R. pointers on hauling  ore economically, but the latter can  show the Americanized Canadian how  to light a railway station in Phoenix.  As a number of Great Northern officials are regular readers of lhe Pioneer,  it is to be hoped that   this  intimation  will have the desired effect.  �����  Referring to the speedy mail service  in the Boundary, the Greenwood  Ledge remarks : "Now that winter is  coming on it is not advisable to put  anything tender in letters passing between Phoenix and Greenwood. Might  be frozen in two days."  The editor of the Blairmore (Alta.)  Time takes the bull by the horns and  decides to take a vacation, come what  will. Here is the way he puts it, and  his readers must miss an issue : "There  will be no issue of the Times next  week, as we believe we have a holiday  coming and intend to lake it, so anyone looking for the staff of the Times  after Monday will have to look to the  hills to find any of them."

BRICKNER  B.C MINING  ��� o  .Rossland mines' ore shipments last  week were 5,463 tons, making 232,777  tons for this year.  It is proposed to send, a British Columbia mineral exhibit to the New  Zealand exposition this fall.  Four hundred coke ovens were closed at Fernie on Thursday, owing to  the strike of the coal miners at the  Coal Creek mines.  A new ore shoot was struck last  week on the^ 1.600 foot level of the  Center Star mine at Rossland. It is  40 feet in width and assays $\S to the  ton.  The Fisher Maiden, in the Slocan,  managed by Geo. Long, has resumed  operations. This mine has been &  great producer of silver-lead ore, but at  present is troubled with water.  G. O. Buchanan,- Dominion lead  bounty distributor in this province, asserts that there should also be a bounty  on zinc ores, owing to the 20 per cent,  duly imposed by the U. S. government.  The Standard mine at Silverton has  struck three feet of solid silver lead  ore in the lower tunnel. This property  has been worked for years, has paid  from the grass roots, and is a regular  shipper.  Last week the mines of Kootenay  and Boundary shipped 31,174 tons,  making a total of 1,195,890 tons for  this year. Of this total the mines of  the Boundary have shipped over 880,-  000 tons.  At the Sullivan mine, East Kootenay, about $500,000 worth of ore was  produced in the fiscal year, the operating expense of mine and smelter be-  ins $400,000. The annual meeting  was held last week in Spokane, when  Senator Turner was elected president  of the company, and D. A. Clement  secretary.

There is no admission fee to his lectures.  Dick Sutton's novelty shows appeared Wednesday and Thursday evenings  at Miners' Union opera house to good  audiences. There was not a dull moment during the performances, the  specialties being snappy, the music  above average, and the dancing as  good as could be expected. The com  pany travels in its own car and carries  its own band and orchestra.  The C. P. R. now has its new boarding house at Eholt about ready for  business.  Another attempt is to be made in  Giand Forks this fall and winter to  build a covered skating rink.  Martin Burrell, editor of the Grand  Forks.Gazette, who acted as one of  the judges at the Kaslo and Nelson  fairs, is in Victoria this week, in a similar capacity.  George R. Naden, mayor of Green  wood, who has been off on an expedition into the  Bulkley  valley  country,  in northern B. C, for several months,  returned this week.  D. J. Darraugh, provincial constable at Midway, who has been very low  at the Greenwood hospital for some  weeks, is improving slightly, but his  condition is still critical.  L. Bruce Hodge, of Greenwood,  local manager of the B. C. Telephone  Co., took first prize at the Nelson fair  for White Wyandotte chickens, and second prize for L. C. Leghorns.  The winter time table on the C. P.  R. is not expected to go into effect till  about November rst.

J. Lundy, of Midway, has secured the contract for building the  ditch and flume in connection with the  Norris irrigation enterprise. The plan  of the promoters is to put water from  Kettle river and Rock creek on about  3,000 acres of land admirably adapted  to fruit culture.  In the case of the Eastern Townships Bank vs. Vaughn, tried last May,  the case was finally dismissed with  costs. The suit grew over water rights  for irrigation purposes in the Kettle  river valley, near Grand Forks, and the  decision is a victory for the E. L.  Vaughan estate.  Miss Catharine Irene Wood, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Wood,  was married last week Wednesday at  Greenwood, to Ormond Higman, by  Rev. J. Leech-Porter. The couple  are making their home at Fort Sas  katchewan, where Mr. Higman is  located as a civil engineer.  A bunch of Hindoos, who, according to report, were anything but welcome when dumped into Victoria and  Vancouver by the steamers from the  Orient recently, arrived at Grand Forks  last week to secure work on the construction of the Kettle Valley lines up  the North Fork of Kettle river.  The Greenwood city council literally  "blew itself over the visit of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers last  Saturday, footing all the bills���probably to get even for the lack of a visit  from Earl Grey and the Spokane  Chamber of Commerce, which passed  by the bustling little copper city on  Boundary creek.  After many delays, the tracklayers  "on the V., V. & E. westward from  Midway, have at last reached the town  of Molson, Wash., about 30 miles west  of Midway. Trains will be run to  this point regularly before long, it is  expected, as the ballasting gang has  been keeping up pretty well with the  metal layers.

Warning To Water Tenants.  In excessive cold weather, past winters, sonie tenants have allowed the  water to run to keep it from freezing.  To all tenants who find it necessary to  do this we wish to sound a note of  warning : When the water is found to  be thus running to waste, it will be cut  off, without notice, and not turned on  again until April 1st, 1907.
