usually heavy deniand fi.r water for
engines because of the heavy ore traffic,
it lias c.iused the railway division bffi-
ci.-ils no little anxiety. . .' j
The nearest tank on the line to
Phoenix is located a mile or two below
Hartford Junction, and this ,hasbeeii
drawn on so heavily, arid the winter
has been so dry, that no"water whati-
ever can be had there at ••present'.
I ately the engines have been filled
Horn the larjje^tank of the Granby
mines, into'which* waterfrom the shafts
is pumped, but.early in the week the
diaft on this was so heavy that it also,
went dry, and two or three times lately
the drills at the mines had "to be temporality stopped because the C. P. R.
engines had diained the tank.
Arrangement*-, however, have now-
been made for a supply of water from
the system of the Phoenix Water Supply Co., L'td., and a hose has been run
uoni the nearest hydrant, to be replaced with a four inch pipe shortly. There
is a splendid pressure, even at this
high point, above Old Ironsides aye-,
nue, and. the engine tanks, can be filled
in a few minuses each."
An average ol about 15,000 gallons
of water is needed.by thejjpocomotives
here daily, or something over 2,006
gallons for each of seven engines. The
new management thus temporarily, at
least, solves a problem.which' has been
the cause ol a good deal of trouble to
the C. P.-R., and which it is extremely difficult to remedy at this stage.

At the Snowshoe mine; also,, there
is a water famine, there being absolutely no water for compressor use except that which Is pnmpecV from .the
shafts. The result Ts that there is,
even then, but enough water to ' operate the compressor for one shift, consequently the drills are only run one
shift daily: Fortunate')', much' of the
work at present is in the open,quarries,;
where but one shift can be used to ad^

is still sufficient water, ancj when the
snow begins to meit therewjll be water

By that time the compressor will probably be connected with the Cascade
power line, and will operate by electricity.

Last Monday Jay   P.   Graves, general manager of the  Granby  Co., arrived in phoenix and spent a couple
of days.    He was accompanied on the
trip by H. N. Galer, the assistant manager, end also by Wrn, Downie, superintendent, and J. H.   Lawrence, trainmaster of the 'Kootenay-Boundary division of the C. P. R.    The object of
the visit just now was to see if some
better and more  satisfactory arrangements to Granby  and railway officials
could not be made for the more' expe
ditious handling of the large shipments
of ore now being made from' the Granby mines in this camp—averaging 1,-
.500 tons daily.
The Granby officials realize that-Mr.
Downie has done everything in his
power to forward shipments promptly,
but the unusually heavy snow this winter has seriously handicapped the railway company in many ways. As a
result the smelter has had to draw-
heavily on its reserve of ore, and late
last week was forced to bank one of
fts battery of four furnaces for several
days. "
As a result of the visit of the gentlemen mentioned, the new arrangements
now in effect have materially facilitated the handling of the 01 e, both by
the mine workers and the railway employees. Both Mr. Downie,and Mr.
Lawrence spent several days this week,
making headquarters at Eholt, and
personally seeing that the new plans
wotked out to the bes*- advantage. Wm
Yolen Williams, superintendent of the
Granby mines, is already much pleased at the results of the new order ol
About 40 men are reported as working on the several high grade properties around Greenwood.
No shipments have been made from
the Emma mine this week, but they

Late last week a 'furnace at the
Granby smelter was banked, on account of trouble in getting ore in time.
It will probably be started again today.

Have a Lot of New Eagles.
Last week Friday an aerie of the
fraternal Older of Eagles was organized at (.ireenwogd, with the following
officers: Worthy past president, J as!
McCienthj president, J. W. Nelson;
vice-president, H.' U. Madden; secretary, Charles Wilson; treasurer, A. II.
McNeil; conductor,T.Pickard; guards,
W. McDonald and George Wellwood;
chaplain, Thomas Gaine; trustees,
Philip McDonald, Duncan Campbell
and Fred Munn.
A large delegation of Eagles from
Phoenix, which had the first organization of the kind in the Boundary,
flew down the hill to Greenwood, and
half a dozen came over from Grand
Forks, to assist at the installation ceremonies. The new lodge starts off with
30 members,
For the first month of TQ03 the
mines of the Boundary start off with
a good record in the way of ore
shipments, but not neariy as good as
it would have been had the seven,
instead of four or five blast furnaces
been in steady operation. However,
the total, of over 52,000 tons is quite
respectable, and what is more, it bids
fair to be larger in FebJuary, a shorter
month by three days.
From the sjx leading nii'lPS, practically all the shippeis, the tonnage

Macpberson Elected In Burrard.
Robert G. Mac.pherson was elected
this week in Burrard constituency by
the liberals as representative at Ottawa,
in the place of the late George R. Maxwell. The other canditates were ex-
lieutenant-goycrnor Mc^nnis and Chris
Foley, The latter gave Mr. Macpher-
son a close run, and it is the general
belief that had Mr. Mclnnis not been
nominated the labor candidate would
have been elected.

\ri "Silil Surveying.
.The party of Great Northern engineers, under Chief Engineer Kennedy,
of the V., V. & E. railway, is still located in the city, and are busy running
the lines for the new survey into town.
It is understood that satisfactory grades
have been found by which the crossing
of so many townsite lots has been
averted. The line,„ .if jt is adopted,
will come up the south side of the
valley from the Last Chance mine to
the Idaho flat, where the depot ground
will be located. By doing this the
platted portion of the cjty js avoided
almost entirely. Jt is not positively
settled that this survey will be used,
but it now seems more than likely.
Phoenix 6—Greenwood 4.
Wednesday evening the. Greenwood

Ralph Smailes  Chosen   Mayor ky a  Small
This week the fat was all in the fire
again at Greenwood, and George R.
Naden and Ralph Smailes were once
more pitied against each other for the
ancient and honorable office of mayor
of that burg. And thereby hangs a
tale, according to well authenticated
At the lime of the regular election
three weeks ago, both of thesu well
known gentlemen were nominated for
mayor. But a day or two before election a certain banker is reported to
have gone to Mr. Naden and stated
that if he did not withdraw, his financial interests would suffer. Mr. Naden
told the gentleman of finance to go to
any old place, but an agreement was
inade the day before polling that both
candidates should withdraw or resign
whichever was elected. But few votes
were cast, Mr. Smailes was elected, and
according to agreement he resigned.
The resignation was accepted, and a
new election ordered.
When nominations occurred last
Monday, Alderman Sullivan was put
up, and to the surprise of the Naden
party so was Mr. Smailes. So Mr.
Naden decided to run again far all he
was worth. For three days there was
a hot time in Greenwood, and election
workers were in evidence everywhere
Mr. Sullivan withdrew, leaving the
light to the two other candidates. Votes
were hustled from everywhere, and on
Thursday, election day, voters aie reported to have come from Nelson,
Rossland, Grand Forks and Phoenix.
Quite a number went down from
lieie to take part in the fray.
The total vote cast was a surprise,
being some 4ojnore than anticipated.
The result was very close, and »ave

At Wednesday's meeting of the city
council, when Secretary Crawford, of
the jocal school board, presented the
estimate of expenditures for the year,
amounting to $2,400, and it was found
that the city would, be railed upon to
supply about $1,000 of this, it was decided to look into the matter
Accordingly, the following facts in
regard to attendance were elicited by
[ Mr. Crawford: Enrollment^ 100; average attendance, 80; of ttaJTaiter 45
reside outside the limit* of tfi^corporation, and 35 inside.   *
This means that the city taxpayers
are called upon to pay for trie cost of
teacning 45 children whose parents reside outside the city limits, and who
pay no taxes whatever into the city's
treasury for schooling or anything else.'
Of course, they are all residents of the
community, but are outside the oorpo-
ration limits. , '
City Clerk Matheson was instructed -
to write to the department of education at Victoria, and see if some relief
could not be arranged for, as, strictly
speaking, residents of Grand Forks or
Gieenwood or any other .place would
have an equal right to send their children to this city's public school.
Circulars Still Conla(.
Last week a flood of circulars from
the mining association • befng organized .
at Victoria, were received  by the residents of this camp.     Evidently  a few
persons were overlooked,   for another '
bateh arrived this week.
J. B. Hobson, the provisional president of the association, is expected in
the Kooteneys next week, and' more
than likely will take a run'into the
Boundary. He is on an organizing
expedition.- In some places the idea
of the new organization is received with
welcome, and in others otherwise. No
action has yet been taken in Boundary
towns to form local organizations, 'so
far as announced.
Mr. Parrlsh is the Man.
Frank S. Parrish, for the last three
years manager of the B.-. C, - mine - in
Summit, camp, was this, weelc made
general manager of the Le Roi mine
at Rossland, and is being- congratulated by his friends.: He will-take up his
new duties in about two .weeks.. ■' Mr.
Parrish is one ofthe most popular mine
managers in the Boundary, and has had
some 24 years' practical mining experience, largely in Columbia. Since he
took hold of the B. C. mine for the B.
C. Chartered:Co., Ltd.> the. property
has shipped nearly 100,000 tons of ore.
W.J.Anderson and James Morrison, of Grand Forks, owners of the

The Bureau of Provincial Information has issued a new edition of Bulletin No. 7, a general review of mining in British Columbia, with an addenda bringing the information up to

-,has gradually, but none the less surely,
been coming to the conclusion that the
key to any vast industrial situation is
power—cheap power — and plenty of
it. All other conitions, such as abundance of raw material, good transportation, facilities, etc., may obtain, but
if economical power be not obtainable
the proposed enterprise starts out with
a serious handicap.
Power is manufactured in quantities
in either of two ways, from coal and
by ^htfr nessing water, which  is transmitted, to a considerable  distance by
means of an electric current.    The lat-
■   ter system, where it can be made use
of, is becoming pore and  more generally infuse, for the, simple but all
' powerful. reason,  now generally well
. known, that power can  be generated
. from the natural fall of water at from
one-third to one-fifth of the cost when
coal is used.
In the initial stage of development
, in a new mining country, the timber
- often plentiful and convenient, is used
at first as fuel for power purposes. Then
as, the-timber is used  up, recourse is
perforce made of  coal.     Following
this "the next step is to secure electric
,, power,< which in the end is found to be
the'most, economical and convenient
of all powers.

toms' smelters.    With this in view your
board is very carefully going into   tl^e
question of costs of smelter  construction, and those.iiirectors who have been
in   British  Columbia  visited,   duiing
their stay,"several jitesforthis purpose,
and will report ilicreoirat a later d.ite.
The tola)-expenditure  on   teyenue
account is ,£5,198 os. 7d., and the receipts fiom sales of ore, inteiest,   etc.,
j£i,i4Cf 9s. 8d., living  a balance to
be cairied fprwqrd of ^,'3,051 10s tid.
In .this connection- it should   perhaps
be borne in mind that the apiouiit ol
ore shipped up to September 30th, was
but small, no ore having been shipped
in April and May, owing partly to the
tact'that dining a portion ol last  summer the.snielters were closed down on
account, of the strike  at   the  Crow's
Nest Pass coal mines. a,n,c| consequent
scarcity of ppke,    With  regular ship-
nu'titb, our receipts  from sales  of ore
will rapidly increase, and   I   think we
may expect an interesting profit to ac-
ciue fiom these »alea.
It is no wish of mine to make any
invidious distinction, but if I single
out our deputy chahman, Mr. .Water-
low, my co-directors will not, I tiust,
feel any pangs of jealousy. If \ may
be aj(owed {6 say so, the Snowshoe
mine is the infant of .Mr,. Waterlow.
He has watched over it and tended i
and hehfls at various times spent days

this couiitry, but on the mine itself and

shortly be crowned with the success
they certainly merit,   " - - -    .'
In conclusion, I have one word more
to say, and that is with  regard  to tha
position of mining in British Columbia
generally.    I am perfectly well   aware
^—it is a matter of common notoriety—
that  owing   |p   circums(ances   whicli
have occurred within the last  year or
two in connection wjth  certain companies owning mines,  in tllftt  country,
and into the details of which it is not
necessary for me to enter,   the confidence of the British investor in British
Columbia mines has,  in a great measure, been shaken, and I  am   not  surprised.    To restore that confidence, as
ffir as lies, in their power, is,  and wjll
be, the aim and object of our board,; '
We are convinced that before  long
we shall be able to prove to the investing public of this country that by hoii ■
est, judicious, economical  and sound
management there are  mining enterprises in   the  vas| regions of British
Colirmbia well worthyrbf the a.ttentiprt
of' the investor, and further, that there
are  in  that country capabilities and,;|
possibilities hitherto little realizedor
above the sea, I very carefully inspect
ed the surface workings, and I could
not help being immensely struck by the
large amount of exposed ore. The
qnairies lying to the north, on which
twe are'.now. workings are but small
coni|)ared to what fhe large ones will
be, when we.'dpen' up the oie body upon the stripped ground to the southwest. The chairman has explained to
you how the:e quarries are worked by
bhutes through which the ore, broken
up by dynamite, falls into chambers
arranged in tunnels where hand tram-
cars receive it and are then merely
pushed out to the ore bins. In this
way the ore is, practically, not handled

During the visit  of your  directors
they made a contract with the Boundary Kails smelter, the owners of which
11I50 own the Siiiiset.tnine, a"d they at
the "present time are taking a large part
of our ore.    Should they suddenly discover a much greiter  body  of ore in
their mine, they might-: not, of course,
require much of oiiisj hence the desirability of looking  forward to having a
smelter of our own.     Theiefore, during our stay in the country, we visited
four smelters with a view of seeing all
the methods and de'.ails of their management, and what it might be best for
us to do in   the future;   and   we also
visited three smelter sites with a view-
to future possibilities, and lean assure
you that we have made, ourselves fully
cognisant of the details 'and costs of
sinejters.,, On account of the self-fiux-
jng properties of the ^np,vv^hpQ pre/.tt
can be strieltep! yery cheai>ly,  and,   as
it does npt require roasting,  the metal
contents can be extracted   in from   24
to 48 hours by  a  company owning
smeltjng and converting-,works.
"During my visit  to the Snowshoe,
several representatives of the  British
Press; who were' making a tour through
Canada, under the auspices of the government, paid a visit to the  Boundary
district'     They were shown over the
mines  of the  district,: including  the
Snowshoe mine, and afterwards, we entertained, them, ,'a\  luncheon   at   our
boardjng hopse, with many ol the leading   municipal 'representatives  of the
district.    They were   very" much im-j
pre=seci with the great   possibilities'.of
these mines, ?jnd with  the  immensity
of the ore bodies in the neighborhood.
I am afraid, gentlemen, that  I have
detained you too long, but  before  sitting down, I should like to assure you
that I am convinced that in the Snow-
shoe mine you have a properly capable
of  a great future;  good   honest men
working in  its,  inlerestj   and  a  very
.:au,tiqu.s engineer Instating its   possibilities. ' And I cannot conclude these
remarks without expressing how much
we are indebted to  our ^managing director, Mr. McMillan, for the way in
which he has worked for our interests,
as both in British Columbia and other
parts of Canada, and in London he has
unceasingly   and. untiringly   devoted
himself to the interests - of  this  cpm.- 3
pauy.    He is^ well-kriqw.n,^11 oyer Canada'.. "i\U"d (S on0 of the best known men
in British Columbia, and   we are very
much indebted to'him for the able way
in which   the  management  has  been
carried out on the Snowshoe mine.
Cheapest Smelting la (be \Vor|(j.
Dr. II.'.^.ewis, Janes, another director who has been at the Snowshoe mine
on several occasions, made the fallowing statement;.
!T,n supporting the adoption of the
report a,nd. accoipits, I wish to >ay a
lew words on beliqlf of my co-directors
and myself about the treatment of the
Snowshoe ore. The expenses of operating a mine consist largely of two
chief items, the cost of extracting the
ore fiom the ground, and the cost of
extracting the metals from t^ie, ore.
When several hu^red, t,bn.s' of ore are
raised, from' the mine every -day, the
saving of even a shilling at ton in its
tieatment is an item, and the choice of
a suitable and cheap metallurgical process becomes very important. Jt has
been our special care to investigate a
large number of proposed methods of
treating the Snowshoe ore.
We are happy to say that we are get
ting our ore treated at a rate whicl
is extremely low compared with costs
of treatment in other"pjacps, and. I
think, jf a most striking fact that smelting is done as cheaply, or more cheaply,
in the Bomidaiy district of British Columbia than anywhere else in theworld.
Still, the'smelter company has to make
a profit, and does so, from every ton it
receives, and now that the reserves of
ore in the mine have been sh.q\vn to be

A rich Irish-American, who _.fre-
ijiently visits England and dearly loves
'.a. lord,.loses no opportunity of talking
of his great acquaintances. At a recent
dinner jiarty In New York, where there
were several Roman Catholics, during
a conversation on the subject- of fast-
laf, this gentleman said: "It Is very
strange how little Catholics In the
higher ranks mind the. fast days. I was
dining at the Duke of Norfolk's on a
fast day, three weeks ago, and there
wasn't* bit of fish at dinner." "I
suppose," said, another Irishman, "they
had eaten It all In the dining-room."
John D. Rockefeller recently told the
following story: "I don't question the
veracity of that story, but I am goim?
to tell you one that I know to be true.
It happened dowrn in.Washington.. A
negro was driving a wagon' and'in going through a street ran against a fu-
Mmm*. With the superstition of hia
race he thought It would be, bad luck
to cross behind the funeral, so he tried
1 00 I t0 cross' ahead of it, but the, driver of

until filially the darkey sang out: 'Say,

Judge Pennypacker of Philadelphia
tells a story which shows the readiness
of the Pennsylvania Dutchrrtan to obey
«2 00 I vthose in authority: In '1861  Sheridan,
o 0/j I  under orders, burned every born from
■   ' a jvalley, above Staunton' to'a' certain
point' 'below' Winchester;    A band  of
angry rebel*) followed this raid, watching for * chance to pick' up any stragglers.  Among others who fell Into their
handBwas a little Pennsylvania Dutch-
rrmn, who quj^jHy turned to'his captors, and - enquired:  "Vat ,'you fellows
going to: do mlt me?"  TUe reply came
12 Ot I  short and sharp: "Hang you."   "Veil,"
, q,! I he said, meekly, "vatever Is de'rule."
'  His   good-natured   reply   threw    the
Confederates Into, a roar of laughter
and saved his life.
One day last aatumn Bennet Burleigh,  the noted English special war

this audacity, it is said that even General Tucker's stock of sulphurous adjectives ran low. ■
Gilbert Parker, to illustrate the gullibility of. some Englishmen in the. colonies; recently told the following story:
"Once, in Australia on my way through
the bush, with my friend Cabbage Tree
BUI, we were accompanied 10 a burly
and; Intelligent young gentleman from
Devonshire, and as we came along we
saw along the road, If It might be called
a road, a young kangaroo.   Bill said:
"Now wait a minute: you will see him
take  the letters/   The kangaroo  was
sitting up as If waiting, for something*
and Bill said, 'He has his pouch and
everything ready to carry them,' but
as   we   came along  Bill. snapped  his
whip and said, 'Nothing to-day,' and
the  kangaroo   trotted  off,   the  young
gentleman believing for-a great part of
the rest of the Journey that the object
of the kangaroo's presence was as Bill
had said."
John Philip Sousa, the bandmaster,
usually wears his uniform at all tlmen
and seasons, and prefers that his men
do the same.   The practice has led to
some very amusing experiences.    For
example,   one  night   Mr.   Sousa    was
standing in a railway station, on th«
platform, waiting for a train.' A belated traveler ran up to him and asked,
excitedly,    "Has  the nine-three  train
pulled out?"    "I  really don't  know,-
responded Mr, Sousa. "Well, why don't
you  know?"    shouted    the    traveler.
"What are you standing here for like
a stick of wood?  Aren't you a conductor?",   "Yes." said' Mr.  Sousa,   pleasantly,   "I am a conductor."    "A  nice
sort of conductor, indeed!" exclaimed
the man.    "Well,  you see," smilingly
responded the musician. "I am not the
