The man who is generally acknowledged to be head and shoulders above  any other in the American railway  world���James J. Hill, president ofthe  Great Northern���-made his long deferred initial visit to Phoenix last Wednesday. The visit was in the course  of an inspection of the company's  lines, the party having been to Fernie  the previous day. Mr. Hill seems to  hear his 67 years well, for be looks  scarcely any older than .when the  Pioneer man last met him, some 14  years ago.    ���:������: ���  Mr Hill's train is called the "President's Special," and it is   well   worthy  of the name, with, its' seven Pullmans  as fine as  can   be  found anywhere.  Eyidenlally   he does  not  believe  in  .travelling-, alone,  either, as he had 15  or 20 men with him, consisting ol railway presidents and directors, together  with a number of -prominent-{bankers  and   financial  men   from   New, York,  with   their  secretaries, etc.   ".The.full  list ofthe party of guests is as follows :  'Louis W.

Many of the gentlemen, including  Mr. Hill himself, had never been here  oefore, and were seeing for the first  time the mines in which some of them  are interested, and for a portion of the  tonnage of which the Gt. Northern had  spent about a million dollars. From  the remarks made, it was plain that  they were more than pleased and satis  fied, not only with the rxtent of the  ore bodies, but with the manner in  which the entire business of manufacturing copper ii being carried on by  the Granby Co.

'       I n's roads, doubtless one of the secrets  About two hours were spent here by  of his success.  When he acquired the St. Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railway be changed the name to the Great Northern,  and extended it to the Pacific coast.  Then he acquired a control in the  Northern Pacific and Burlington, as  well as in other lines. The Great  Northern was one road that did not go  into the hands of a receiver in the financial crash of the early nineties, as did  the Northern  and Union Pacific and  GIANT FURNACE IS  WORKING WELL  m  Another May   Be  Blown  Next Week.  Supt. Hodges, ol the Granby Co.,  states that the new giant blast furnace  which he blew in at the smelter last  week, by letting one of the smaller furnaces go cold, is doing splendid work,  smelting about 450 tons of ore per  day, or about 40 per cent more than  any one of the smaller furnaces.  The rains this week have helped the  water power problem to some extent,  and Mr. Hodges hopes to be able to  blow in the other large furnace next  week, thus having seven of the battery  of eight furnaces in blast. While no  more power can be obtained from the  Cascade concern, as it is already being  operated to fullest capacity, the higher  water will increase the Granby Co.'s  own water power in the North Fork of  Kettle river, and possibly permit the  increase as stated. The Granby smelter is today treating more ore daily  than ever before in its history.  Boundary Mining Notes  Two more cars of ore were shipped  from the Helen mine this week.  On the Boston exchange this week  Granby shares went up as high as  $7.75���a new record.  The machinery is being placed in  position at the Maori group in Providence c.uiip.  Returns from the car of second grade  ore from the Skylai k gave about $40  per ton, from the recent high grade  car, $105 per ton.  Preparations will shortly be made  for starting surface operations on the  new three compartment shaft by the  Granby Co.  The recent initial shipment of ore  from the Don Pedro and Crescent  mines gave in the neighborhood of  $80 per ton���a most satisfactory return.  The Skylark syndicate, with the payment ot $3,000 to be made Monday,  has paid up $12,000 on the $30,000  bond. The property is said to be improving in appearance.  Last week R. W.Rodda, a mining man  of Seattle, was in the city having just  returned from a trip to the Lottie F.  group ot copper claims, up the main  Kettle river. "It is now given out that  Mr. Rodda has secured an option on  the group, running till about the 15th  of March next, the amount agreed up  on as a purchase price being in the  neighborhood of $60,000. It is Mr.  Rodda's intention to at once put a  force of men on the group, proving it  up during the winter..  Mr. Rodda is an old Rossland man  and is backed up in the enterprise by  New York, Boston and Louiville capitalists, who have ample fuuds for not  only developing the properties on a  lai'ge scale, but for the building of  smelting works or a railway to the  mines, should they prove up as well as  anticipated.  The Lottie F. group is entirely own  ed by Phoenix men, being Mayor Geo.  W. Rumberger, James Marshall, Alex  Strachan, J. B. 'Macaulay and Wm.  Fernie, the latter being for the present  a resident of Rossland. The group is  located about 60 miles from the pres  ent terminus of railway communication  at Midway, on main Kettle river, some  16 miles from the townsite of Canyon  City. It has so far been developed by  a 40 foot shaft and considerable open  work, and the showing is particularly  favorable. The ledges on the group  are said to be from 100 to 400 feet in  width, average tests from the ore so far  discovered giving returns of from 6 to  30 per cent in copper, $15 to $45 in  gold and 10 to 15 ounces in silver.  Last year the owners, who have crown  granted the group, built about ten  miles of new trail to take in supplies,  etc. The ore is said to be of a self-  fluxing character, an important matter  when disposing of the product to custom smelters.  Since the commencing of construction on the Midway & Vernon railway,  which will run within six miles of the  Lottie F. group, there has been con  siderable interest in the known rich  claims of the main Kettle river district,  and work is expected to be started be  fore long on other mineral claims of  great promise.  - Ferdinand W. Peck, Jr., of Chicago,  president of the Preston Mining Co.,  last Tuesday completed an inspection  of the company's property, some two  or three miles below Phoenix, and expressed himself as greatly pleased with  the prospects of the company, so much  so,  in   fact,   that a contract has just  been let for the deepening of the shaft  at the mine.    Mr. Peck also examined  other   mines of the district during his  stay  of   several   days,   including the  Granby properties, being accompanied  by Richard Armstrong, of Greenwood.  The shaft on the Preston has attained a depth of 67 fee.t, and a  contract  was jet  this week to Mike Callahan,  formerly foreman at the Brooklyn mine  here,   to  deepen the shaft at least 50  feet more, when crosscutting and drift  ing will be done.    At the inception of  operations the formation was considerably broken up, but after getting down  about   33  feet  the ore was found in  solid    formation,   and   it   has   been  steadily  improving   since   that,   with  values   running  over $100 per ton in  gold and silver.      When   the  present  contract is completed it is  the  intention   to commence  stoping and shipping ore.    Mr. Callahan   has already  commenced work on his contract.  Mr. Peck belongs to a group of  wealthy Chicago men who have become interested in the high grade  mines of the'BouncIafy 'this "yeaV," and  who have already invested considerable sums in the district mines. Other  men in the Preston are Col. T. L.  Dickasoh, a Chicago millionaire; T.H.  Hart, a wealthy coal operator of Indiana; S. K. Martin, a Chicago banker,  and Thomas Taggart, the National  Democratic committee chairman. As  soon as the work warrants it, the Preston and the Crescent, adjoining, in  which Col. Dickason is a heavy owner,  will be supplied with an electric hoist,  the order for which has already been  placed.  W. T. Smith went down to Spokane  yesterday.  J. B. Henderson, of Grand Forks  was a visitor in the city Thursday.  Mayor Rumberger spent several  days in Spokane early this week. ���  Supt. R. C. Morgan came up on  the "President's Special" on the Great  Northern last Wednesday.  Ed McGrade, who has been spending ' three months in and around Tor- *  onto, returned on Thursday's train.  Edwin C. Reeder, representing the  Allis-Chalmers-Bullock, Ltd., of Nelson, was a visitor in the city this week.  H. H. Shallenberger, manager ofthe  Crescent and Don Pedro mines, with  his wife, has been spending a few days  in Spokane.  J. G. Whiteacre, of Nelson, who  sells more pianos than any other man  in the interior ofthe province, was here  on a business trip Tuesday.  George L. McNicol, storekeeper at  the Granby mines, started Saturday on  a visit of a week or two to the Portland and New Westminster fairs.  William J.

Owing  to the growth of the mining industry in  the   Boundary district, thtre is a very  large demand for electrical power, and  Mr. Wethered is going out in order to  consult- with -American experts as to  the Kettle River Power Co.���in which  the   West  Australian  Gold Fields   is  largely   interested���putting   up   additional   electrical power and extending  their dams and. probably erecting supplemental steam power, a couise which  is strongly recommended by Messrs. J.  G. White'& Co.,   the  electrical  engineers, of London and New York. The  Kettle  River  Power  Co.   is  already  making substantial profits with its present plant, but the demand for power is  so great that the Bonnington company  ���150 miles off���are  endeavoring  to  obtain   leave  to put in a transmission  line to supply ��� the  additional   power  needed in the Boundary district, which  naturally belongs to the Kettle   River  company,   but  this   intention  will, be  effectually blocked by the proposed in-,  crease of the Kettle River plant.  mr.
