The total issue is  $r,000,000. These bonds are being  retired by the sinking fund provision in  the mortgage, and which retires the  entire, issue inside the next eight years.  ��� "The Dominion Co. now has available to its treasury about $700,000 in  cash, and it is stated the management  is only waiting the complete installation  of the increased smelter capacity to  declare a first dividend, which is expected to be quarterly on the basis of  10% per annum. Par value of the  shares is $10.  "With its new smelter capacity in  operation the Dominion Co. should  produce 6,006,000 pounds of, copper  per annum at a cost inside of 9 cents  per pound. With copper at 20 cents  this would show i6j^% on the entire  capital stock after providing the interest  and sinking fund requirements of the  bonds."   :  BASEBALL TROPHY  WORTH   $150  For  21  Phoenix Glub Organizes  Season.  Tuesday evening, a meeting of those  interested in base ball was held, when  the Phoenix Base Ball Club was organised, and the following officers  elected for the coming season: Honorary President, Dr. W. H. Dickson;  honorary vice-president, James Mar-  shall; president,.,_.Tuck ;..Collins; ..vice-,  president, Barney Cosgrove; secretary  and treasurer, E. A. Black; manager,  Harry James.  A committee was appointed to interview the officials of the Dominion  Copper Co., on the ground of which  the ball park was located last year, adjoining the city limits, to see if satisfactory arragements can be made for  the use of the same grounds for this  year. If this can be done.it is the  intention that the grounds be fenced  in and otherwise greatly improved.  J. L. Cassidy & Co., of Montreal,  have donated a $150 trophy, to be  contested for this year by the ball  clubs of the Boundary country, and  this adds no little interest to the sport  in this section, which has always had  many devotees in the Boundary.  Greenwood has already organized a  club for the season, Grand Forks will  probably do likewise, ann heretofore  Midway has had a club that has made  a good record. It is, therefore, not  unlikely that a Boundary league will  be organized as soon as the season is  well opened up, there still being  several inches of snow in and around  Phoenix.  The price of. copper seems to be  sagging somewhat.        .  Granby's ore shipments this week���  over 18,000 tons���makes a new record for this year.  At the Bay mine stoping is going on  at the 130-foot level, and very rich ore  is being taken out for shipment.  The Elkhorn mine is on the shipping list again this week, sending out  a car load of high grade silver ore to  Trail smelter,  It is the intention to install a local  telephone system at the Snowshoe  mine, connecting the several parts of  the property. <      .  The International Coal & Coke Co.,  of Coleman, Alberta, has declared its  second one-percent dividend, amounting to about $28,000, payable May 1st.  In January the Granby mines shipped 34,192 tons of ore, in February  32,465 (low water mark for several  months), but in March 63,826 tons  were sent out, and April is likely to be  even larger.  Work on the 5,800-foot six-inch pipe  line, from the Idaho to the Rawhide  mine, is being rapidly pushed by the  Dominion Copper Co., to supply compressed air at the latter4 property as  soon as possible. ���  Steam shovels for mining having be"  cornea thing of the past at the Granby  mines, the large shovel used at those  properties was shipped to Spokane a  short time ago, where it is in use by  the Inland Empire Railway Co.  . Supt. Hewer, with a force of four  men, is running a crosscut from the  bottom of the 200-foot shaft of the  Greyhound mine, Deadwood camp,  which is now in about 80 feet, and the  pre body is expected to be encountered  soon. .-.,..���,, >  A carload of machinery arrived at  the Snowshoe mine this week, including two small motors to be used till  the arrival of the 400-h.p. electric  motor. Other appliances for the electric drive shortly to be installed at that  property, also arrived.  . . Seven furnaces are now.m continuous operation at the Granby, smelter,  the-, coke, supply being .-sufficient- for  that number, though the'railways have  not been delivering ore as fast as desired. By next week the final work  of enlarging the eighth furnace of the  Granby battery will be completed.  On Wednesday the new 400 h. p.  electric motor, now in place at the Dominion Copper Co.'s large air compressor on the Idaho, was started for  the first time and found'. to run wall.  Connections are being made now, and  the compressor should be in running  order in a short time.  COAL DELEGATES  FAIL TO AGREE  Operators and Miners  Go Home  Miners' Give 30 Days' Notice  of New Demand.  Boundary Side Lights  ore  to the Do-  s Boundary Falls  Old English Bazaar aod Dance.  An' old English Bazaar and sale of  work will occur Thursday, April nth,  by the Ladies' Guild, of St. John's  Episcopal Church, at Miner's Union  hall. Many novelties are promised,  and committees have been formed for  the several departments, one feature of  the project being special attention  given to the musical programme, which,  after the bazaar will include an orchestral concert, given by seven or eight  pieces. The orchestra under the able  leadership of Harry James, performs  for the ball to follow. Auction sales  will be hejd during the evening of  merchandise, donated by the principal  business firms of Phoenix.  The Rev. Mr.Heath has been a hard  worker here, and it is earnestly wished  that a huge success will reward the  Ladies' Guild of his church.  The shipments of  minion Copper Co  smelter for the month of March, show  the high water mark of 20,649 tons,  being several tons higher than any  previous month in the history of the  plant or . company, and nearly three  times the February output.  After many delays in the receipt of  material for the aerial tram of the B.C.  Copper Co. for the Napoleon mine,  near Boyd's, Wash., the .tram is now  nearly or quite completed, but the  Great Northern railway seems slow  about putting in the siding at the tramway terminal, half a mile above  Boyd's. When the tram is in operation,  there should be no more trouble about  getting ore promptly from the Napoleon  mine.  Last Wednesday Local Manager  Hodges, Chief Electrician Lane, both  of the Granby Co., and R. P. Williams,  of the Jenckes Machine Co. that built  the hoist, and Engineer Reed, of the  Westinghouse Co., that furnished the  large motor, inspected the new 250-  h.p. electric hoist, and 25o-h.p. electric  motor, while the entire mechanism was  in operation, at the Granby Victoria  shaft, it being found to work satisfactorily. The rails and guides have  been installed to the .joofoot level of  the Granby mines, and the hoist is  now being operated to that level.  Reports from the Crow's Nest  country this week, regarding the coal  situation are anything but reassuring.  Early in the week, the report got out  and was printed that the operators and  miners had agreed on a new contract,  to take the place of that expiring April  1st, but later reports show that the  convention at Calgary finally broke up  without any agreement having been  reached, the delegates of both operators and miners returning to their  homes without having accomplished  anything, so far as can be learned.  This is borne out by the following  notice from the miners' officers, which  was handed to S. F. Little, secretary  of the operators' association at Calgary,  Tuesday night: 'To the Western Coal  Operators' Association, comprising the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal company, the  "International Coal & Coke company,  [the West Canadian Collieries, Limited,  the Canadian-American Coal & Coke  company, Limited, the Breck'enriclge-  l.und Coal & Coke company, the H  W. Neill Coal company, and the.Pacific Coal Co.", Ltd.:  "We, the undersigned, acting on behalf of your employees, hereby give  you 30 days' notice that a change of  wages, hours and conditions of labor is  demanded by your employes at the  various mines, coke ovens and outside  plants, owned and controlled by your  respective companies."  This notice would seem to indicate  that the miners' officers intend to proceed under new Trades' Disputes Act  passed by the Dominion parliament a  few weeks ago,.to deal with strikes.  The act prohibits lock-outs or strikes  till the matter can be investigated by a  commission; and the<-fullesfpublicity  from reliable sources given to both  sides. Then, if it is still desired, in the  face of public opinion, whichever way  that inclines, a lockout or strike may  proceed. The idea is that the limelight of publicity on all causes leading  up to a strike or lock-out will tend to  bring the parties together.  News from the Crow is to the effect  thai the district officers of the United  Mine Workers of America are not hav  ing an easy time to keep the men in  line for the 30 days, or until a commission investigates, and it is not unlikely that developments may take  place among the coal miners at any  time. The situation is being closely  watched, not only by the smelting and  mining industry of the Boundary, but  by the people of Alberta and Saskatchewan, who are also dependent on  that district for a supply of coal.  Two stores are being opened at  Bridesville, a new station on the V. V.  & E. west of Midway.  A new organization in Greenwood is  a basket ball club, which has elected  officers and secured a place to practice  the game.  Police Magistrate Hallett, of Greenwood, is reported by the I^edge to be  after those who sell cigarettes to boys  under 15 years of age.  Robert Kerr, well known all over  the Boundary, received the appointment of customs officer' for the hew  office at Bridesville, opened this week.  The mail service to Camp McKinney  is inexpressibly putrid, and the Pioneer  can furnish the documents from its |  files to prove the fact to any one interested, the postoffice inspector not excepted.  Greenwood has been made a pott of  entry for custom houses west of there  in this section, and Alex. McDonald,  of Boundary Falls, has been made an  assistant to Hugh McCutcheon, the  collector at Greenwood.  Owing to the prevalence of smallpox on the other side of the line, the  Dominion authorities have established  a strict quarantine at the crossing  points in British Columbia, Dr. Truax  being the quarantine officer at Grand  Forks.  214,187 TONS IN  FIRST QUARTER  Boundary Output For  Three Months.  But Is Now Increasing Again  At Rapid Rate.  For the first quarter of  1907, in  spite of the well  known drawbacks of  severe winter weather and the car and  fuel shortage, the mines of the Boundary shipped and  the three  smelting  works treated approximately 214,187  tons of ore.    For the reasons  mentioned this was a comparitively small  output, being some  100,000 tons less  than for the corresponding  period in  1906 and about the same as  the first  three  months in   1905.    So   far  this  year the ore shipments, by months and  in tons, have been as follows:  January......   ...... 60,003  February..'....'.'.. V.  53,965  March............ 100,219  In the injunction case of the C. P.  R. vs. the V. V. & E., growing out of  trespass during the construction of the  V.V. & E. some miles west of Midway  at Myers Creek canyon, a year or  more ago, the C. P. R. secured judgment in court at Vancouver last week.  "Uncle Jim Hill" will now have to  pungle up the damages��� if he does  not appeal the case, to Ottawa or  London.  This week the work of laying steel  on the Kettle Valley lines extension  up the North Fork of Kettle river, was  commenced with about 60 men under  Contractor Tierney. When in full  blast it is expected that from half a  mile to a mile of steel per day will be  put down. As soon as the snow is off,  grading of the line from Lynch creek,  about 20 miles from Grand Forks, will  -be resumed to Franklin camp;":"���"'  "  A Thousand Miles Per Month.  A few days ago the Great Northern  delivered a car of machinery for the  Phoenix Steam Laundry, Ltd., that  had been on the road for more than  three months, making an average of  about a thousand miles per month. It  was tied up in the blizzards in North  Dakota, and then the car and fuel  shortage experienced by the railways  did not help to expedite matters. The  machinery is now being installed by A.  D. McKenzie, manager, in the old  Miners' Union hall building, and in  due time, after the long delay, the  plant will be ready for operation.  Travellers on the C. P. R. White  Wings limited, between Eholt and  Phoenix, feel like congratulating Supt.  Lawrence on the fact that the coach  used on this run had its bi-monthly or  quarterly wash-up this week.  Opera Chair* Installed.  When the audience assembles at the  Phoenix opera house next Friday evening, to enjoy a hearty laugh at the  "Jolly American Tramp," billed for  that day, it will be found that the new  opera chairs, to the number of 200,  and ordered some months ago, have  been installed, greatly improving the  comfort of the patrons of the house.  As coal will be used in future for heating, there will be no further trouble on  this score at entertainments, should  they happen on chilly nights. It is  promised that next Friday evening the  company presenting the "Jolly American Tramp" will chase tears away with  laughter, that bright, scintillating  flashes of wit will dispel gloom and  catchy specialties will make the hours  fly like minutes.

Richard McBride, premier of  British Calumbia, has announced his  intention to proceeding at once to  London, to lay the case of the province  before the authorities there for better  terms to British Columbia from the  Dominion. Premier Laurier leaves  Ottawa almost immediately on similar  business, having oflered Premier McBride an insignificant su:n���$100,000  per annum for ten years, and wishes to  get the British North America Act  amended along that line. Mr McBride  proposes to present his side of the case  in London, asking for special consideration in this matter for British Columbia. The Province continues to pay  into the Dominion treasury about three  times every year the amonnt received.  Returned Irani the Pish Coasrtry.  Alderman A. D. McKenzie returned  Sunday evening from a two months'  trip east, visiting his old home near  Sidney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.  Mr. McKenzie spent four weeks in  Boston, where he has two sisters and  others relatives, and was. chaimed by  the Athens of America, and the place  where the baked bean experts live.  He travelled on C. P. R. both ways,  and got stuck in a blizzard for nearly  two days near Moose Jaw, on the  prairies, something, that was not uncommon during the severe winter that  has just passed. It was twenty years  nearly since Mr. McKenzie has see n  the place of his boyhood. |  For three mos 214,187  It will be noted that March showed  nearly double the output that February  did, due largely to the return to normal conditions in the local smelting  field, the railways once more being in  shape to handle the coke and ore shipments with some sort of satisfaction.  With labor conditions settled, if it so  turns out, in the fuel fields, and with  no other contingencies arising, there is  every reason to look for the tonnage  output to increase each month '.from  this time forward-inasmuch as the new  blast furnaces at the several smelters  are now nearly all completed and  ready for blowing in, if this lias not already been done.

T. J. Gallagher, who is building the  Victoria shaft Great Northern spur  with some 60 or 70 more or less husky  sons of Italy, does not find this weather  conducive to the best of progress in  railway building.  Last week a miner inserted a notice  in the Pioneer to the effect that he had  lost a bundle containing a suit of  clothes, asking the finder to return the  suit to Morrin, Thompson & Co.'s  store. The notice caught the eye of  the finder, and in three days the suit  was left at the store, as requested. It  pays to advertise.  J. W. Gwynn, better known as  "Tonopah,"died last Sunday at Danny  Deane's hotel of erysipelas, the funeral  being held Thursday under auspices of  Phoenix Miners' Union, of which he  was a member. Some time ago Gwynn,  who was an elderly man, was struck  on the head in the Brooklyn mine,  but thought little of it. It developed,  however, into the disease which carried  him off.  Mihs.

Unfortunately, Phoenix had no  hand  in  forming   or   depositing the  wonderful ore bodies in such  an unfavorable   locality   lor  city  building.  Nature prepared the resources; by endurance, privation, and hardship, the  prospector blazed  out  the  trails, and  staked the claims, and the large mining!  companies have created such a demand  for labor and  supplies, that  a city of  more than   two   thousand  population  has sprung into being in  a few years.  And who among us, judging the future  by the past, would daresay that within  as many more years, our city will not  have grown to a population which may  rival Rossland���or even Nelson.  Up to date, we have managed to  exist on the meager supply afforded by  Marshall Lake, and the springs of the  city. But we are warned by the local  and provincial health officers that the  springs are no longer safe for use,  owing to contamination arising from  surface drainage. -These conditions  may cause an outbreak of contagion j  at any time.  I wish, from the view point of a  property holder, and an interested  citizen, to sound this note of warning,  and to invite discussion upon the question, "How can Phoenix secure an  Ample Supply of Pure Water?"  This is a subject of vital interest to  every   citizen���especially   every   property holder.    I have  no doubt, but  that a much better rate for fire insurance will be made when such a supply  of water as the city should  have is in-'  stalled.    The Phoenix Water Supply  Co. has made  such   improvements at  Marshall Lake as the uncertainty of the  permanency of that source will justify.  During the winter a new dam has been  built, 125 feet long, and   25 feet high,  from bed rock.    This will increase the  storage capacity of the lake about one-  fourth over that secured by the former  dam, and if the city has attained its  greatest population, and cbulu we be  satisfied  that   mining  enterprises will  never  drain  the  lake,   it   might  ample for years to come.    However,  with the experience of the past winter's  water shortage, and a   belief that   the  growth of the city will be as great in  the future as it has been in the past, I  r  1  THE OBSERVATORY  Tamos Talxbd or at  Home and Klsewuers  1  The Cranbrook Herald  has started  its tenth year, and is a better paper today, than ever before.

While it is undoubtedly a fact that  the mining industry in British Columbia  is in better shape than it has been for  vears, and that investors have begun to  receive some returns for their long  waiting, or are about to receive them  there is no question but that this has  resulted in increased costs.  , Reduced to its plainest statement of  fact, all these costs, not excepting the  government tax of two per cent (and  this is a tax as well on the wages  ot the men who mine the ore) must be  borne, proportionately, by each ton ol  ore: wrested from .out rock-ribbed hills.  Every increase must be paid by this  low grade ore���which can be described  as nothing else, notwithstanding the  present increased price of the metal.  The question naturally arises, how  long can these low grade ores stand  this constant increase of costs? True,  some profits are being realized in iso-  during the year if all goes well, it is lated cases after years of effort and  worth while to take an unbiassed view investment, but are they commensurate  of the entire field, to see, if possible,  with the amount put into the ground,  what the future has  in store.    As far  as Southeast -British Columbia is con-  .cerhed,'it must be" evident that, while  r     . 1  considerable is doing in the lead-silver  mines in Kootenay, they do not hold  the first place 'in importance in this  section of the province in metalliferous  mining; also, that, while mining in the  .coast districts is growing in importance  each year, it ,has not begun to reach  the stage of development, employment  of men, ore blocked, .out, nor of possible profits in sight, that prevails in  the Boundary and   Rossland, for in-  stance:  ' t Therefore,1 it is fair to state that, all  things considered, the backbone of the  mining industry in British Columbia is  'centered in these districts���and is likely  to become,more so if expansion continues as it has done for the last few  years.    This being the case, we come  to look at' the mining of low grade  . copper ores���ores' yielding less than  one and one-half per cent in copper  ' per ton; ores that could not be handled  . at all except in  very  large quantities  and with costs reduced to the minimum.  ' It should   be  remembered, also, that  many residents of Rossland and Boun-  >dary can recollect when eminent min-  1 ing" men,    after   due    examination,  f'asserted that these ores could never be  extracted and treated with a profit.  and the time required for realization?  Some day there will certainly be a turn  in affairs, followed by a drop in prices  of copper, and then costs must go  down proportionately���although, when  that time comes, no one will ever  think that smeltermen should relurn to  the,twelve-hour day, or miners to the  ten-hour day, as was once the case  here. It is not as though $50 or $100 {  ore was being taken out of our mines,  as it is $5 and $6 ore for the most  part, as nearly as we can make out  less, this increased storage will be as  inadequate as the former supply has  been.  Certainly, when Phoenix can say to  the country, we have an abundance of  pure water for all comers and purposes,  she  will   grow   even   more   rapidly.  There will be a better market/created  for real estate, insurance rates ��� will be  reduced," our hotels will be still more  crowded, and the merchants will be  taxed to meet the increased  demands  upon their business.    Let every property holder who wants to see the improvements in all lines above suggested  realized, make his ideas known. \ This  question can be solved, arid  Phoenix  has men with public /spirit- and 'business sagacity, sufficient to solve this  important problem.

This  week, however, one was received with  a letter (and remittance), and it showed  that the work being done by the Pioneer for the Boundary is appreciated by  one man, at least.    In the: letter was  the following: "We read. The.Pioneer  with a great deal of interest.    ;There is  one thing about which; we'��� would, .like  to speak to you.

The Granby is the largest and the  chief in other respects of the three remarkable smelters which are treating  the low grade copper ores of the  Boundary country, ores which seldom!  exceed 1 ^ per cent copper. It has  been the longest established, and its  existence has been marked by continual growth, and as time has gone by  the quantity of ore yearly dealt with is  getting larger and larger, so that a  period of profit getting, entirely apart  from the unprecedented rise in the  value of copper, has been possible.  For it is.now a fact that were copper  to drop ten or even more cents, other  conditions remaining the same, the  Granby.would be in a position to clear  a profit upon its operations.  At the present moment the Granby  has eight furnaces, 204x46 inches,  which are capable of producing over  3000 tons of ore daily, 'the exact  amount depending upon the nature of  the charges, the more silicious.theless  ore being handled. But large as this,  output is, the Granby is not yet-> satis-!  fied, and Manager Hodges informed a;  Daily News reporter, on the occasion'  of a recent visit to the works, that it  was his intention to bring the aggregate  tonnage handled up to a higher figure  yet by means of the simple process i of  lengthening each furnace 48 inches.i  This will bring the furnaces, remod-]  elled, up to the size of the monster  furnaces being installed at Trail and at  Boundary Falls, and the capacity of the  Granby, under such conditions will be  between 4000 and 5000 tons a day,  ordinarily.

Despite the high price oi labor, the'  costliness of fuel and the evident care,:  shown in more than. one place, taken  of the safety of the employees, the cost1  of reduction at the Granby is probably  lower than any other smelter, wherever  situate, and in this regard the Granby  is a model for reduction works among  smeltermen generally. In this respect  the Grand Forks plant is attracting  wide attention.  Simplicity, as already noted, is the'  key-note of the general plan of all the:  Boundary smelters, but in the Granby  this salient feature,-despite the vast  size of the works^ and 1 the apparent  complexity of the work, is even more  in evidence. This is- furthered at  Grand Forks by reason of the crushing  of the bulk of the ore ��� passed through  the furnaces at the main mines of the]  company at Phoenix.  The railway track (coming in from  the mines is elevated for over a quarter  of a mile upon a lofty trestle, and under  this trestle is arranged a series of bins.  Unlike the.B.C. and Dominion companies' smelters, these bins do not run  in parallel rows, involving a conveyer  belt, but are in one longj-straight line,  the trestle above, the'smelter electric  track beneath, the bins above,: and on  either side.  Parallel to this is the long smoke  chambers and flue, terminating in a  lofty stack at either end of the works,  four furnaces going into the one, and  four into the other. Next comes in  another straight line the eight furnaces,  each alike, each equidistant from the  other. Below and beyond is a parallel  building, under the roof of which is  handled the matte and the slag^ at one  end of which is situated the converter  plant. At one extremity of the plant  is the power room, and at the other the  the blowers.  Using 4000 H.P.  Everywhere the motive power is electricity^ of which '4000 h.p. are taken  up 'daily at the'mines and smelter.  Everywhere the live wires are safeguarded, a condition which while it involves something extra in the way of  expenses, has this offset by the added  security to thelives of the men working in the plant, some 350 in number.  There are two exceptions to the use of  electricity, the one being the orts  shipped down from the mines are  brought by steam power, and that the  slag Is taken away through the same  agency.  A noteworthy point in the management of the Granby smelter  is the  method adopted  of feeding  the  fur-  ���naces.   The plan adopted elsewhere is  the side feed, wherein the ore is brought  to the side of the furnace by trolley  tram, and then the car turned into the  furnace,   being   overbalanced   on   its  truck by the aid of three men.    Mr.  Hodges has a method all his own.   In  the first instance, the furnace ore cars  are divided into compartments, and are  filled under the big trestle set of bins  in the  ordinary way, except that the  compartments in the cars' mean that  the ore is more intimately related to its  fluxes.   The car is then brought, to the  end of the  furnace land   run   into it.  This is effected   by providing a set of  small wheels on wither side of the car j  at the top.    These catch on a projecting ledge running the whole length of  the furnace right and left, just as soon  as the car leaves the track at the mouth  of the furnace.    Three'Cars  are thus  backed in, and are suspended by their  upper wheels over' the  burning mass  below,1 while still attached to the little  electric motor outside.   The release of  a lever, operated  by  one   man, drops  the whole contents of the cars into the  furnace.    But in order.to prevent the  forming of a partly frozen cone of finer  material in the middle of the furnace,  the cars are so opened as to permit the  ore falling out on either side of them,  and thus the fresh supply or ore, Mr.  Hodges   maintains,   is ; placed  at the  side of the furnace, and  not in  the  center.   As will be noted, this means a  great-saving in time and labor.  Hirtllv'SUr Mr Matte.  The slag and matte are handled in  much! the same manner as at the other  Boundary plants. The matte is lifted  by a huge'crane, aftet having been run  into moulds; and theii'taken to the east  end of the building, where is situated  the convenor plant, where blister copper, 99 fine, is made for the metal  market. The slag is handled by a  little steam railway, the pots being  aboutihalf the size of those used at  Greenwood. - This railway does not  run immediately parallel to the furnaces,1 but does so outside of the building, whence side tracks-allow the diminutive locomotives to bacK the empty  pots for filling, up to the furnaces,  taking away those filled. The copper  saved is stated at 24 pounds to the  short ton.  A feature of the plant is the extensive machine shops wherein everything  possible is made on the works themselves, thus saving much in freight and  first cost. Officials and men are working together in harmony at this gigantic  plant, and a long series of successful  operations thus evidently lie ahead of  the company.

The interest in the copper situation  is emphasized by the rapidity with  which new copper districts are opened,  says the Denver Mining Record. If  we were to make'a comparison between  the situation now and that of five years  ago, we cannot help seeing the difference between the degrees of desire to  invest in the red metal. It is only five  years since Arizona was enjoying a  popular copper boom. By that we  mean there were a number of companies organized at regular intervals to  sell slock to small investors. Few of  these enterprises proved successful,  principally because none of them secured a sufficient amount of money to  thoroughly develop and equip a copper  property. So far as the small'investors  were concerned, the boom went out of  Arizona and there was very little  interest in the copper situation until a  year ago.  For the past two years the prices of  the red metal have been ranging much  higher, and we look back with a spirit  of amusement at the predictions of  such men as Lawson that we should  eventually see a stable market at 12  cents a pound. When copper finally  climbed up to 15 and 16 cents a  pound, the economists of the country  warned us that any price above 12  cents would result in nothing but a se  vere reaction. Now that the price is  maintained around 25 cents a pound,  we can readily understand that the  demand is really brisk enough to keep  the figures pretty close to that standard.  The opening of Ely, Nev., was a  signal for another popular drive among  small investors, and while Ely is still  a young camp, we find that all oi the  ���L>��xa o�������� o��-4* oao a^-m  inside properties have practically been  secured, and that heavy interests are  held by Eastern and Western capitalists. This is also true of the districts  in Alaska and British Columbia. One  of the most remarkable features, however, is to be found in the situation in  Arizona. During the past few months  promoters have been turning toward  that old favorite field, but they have  found that everything from good prospects to partially developed properties  have been secured by men of wealth.  But there is one feature that remains  distinctly the privilege of the small investors. This is practically the operation along exploration lines. Even a  few thousand dollars will sufficiently  prospect copper ground to make it a  valuable selling property, and the demand for this class of prospects is very  brisk among heavy investors. These  men realize that if they attempt to  secure a developed copper mine, they  must deal with other men of wealth  who are not disposed to relinquish any  of their rights, because they, too, are  in the business on a large scale. This  makes it almost imperative for capitalists to cast about for good looking  prospects, and a copper property will  always bring comparatively higher  prices than a gold or silver prospect in  the same stage of development.

Doctored a Year With No Relief���Hearth  Restored By Pe-ru-na.  Mrs. Sophia Cslwell, box 857, NuhvlU*, Tonn.,  writes:  "After doctoring for �� year *nd finding no xallat  ifrom leucorrhea resulting from prolapsus uteri, and  which was sapping my life forces away, I finally  tried Peruna, and when T found that it was helping  me every day, it seemed almost too good to be true.  "But, it not only helped me, it cured me and in a  very short time. I am now enjoying the belt of !  health.  "I am strong and free from pain, and I cwrtsJnly  feel that all praise and honor are due to Peruna."  Miss Edith Roams, 720  Dayton, Ohio, writes:  "I suffered for some time with  and female troubles.  "I had been under the treatment of a good 1  I physician for about nine  months without;  obtaining any relief, when Feruna was rec-  | ommended to me.  "After taking twelve bottles of this medi- \  cine I have completely regained my health  "1 am pleased to recommend; Peruna to tiny f  f one Buffering from the above ailments  I   THE organs of the pelvis, liko other  Internal organs  of  the   body, are  Hurt by mucous membranes.   .  Theae membranes are liable to catarrh  the same aa tbe mucous membranes In  aay other part of the body.  Perrlc catarrh may be caused by the  extension of catarrh from other parts of  the body.  Or, it may be brought on by overwork,  by irritating discharges and by excesses  of various kinds.  " When the organs of the pelvis once  become the seat of catarrh, various derangements arise which are called by  different names.  A long list ot diseases, which cannot)  be  discussed in public print,, some of  j them peculiar to the female 6ox, others  common to both sexes, are caused by  catarrh of tho pelvic organs.  Local treatment does not seem to be  of any use.  Homoot tho organs are so located as  to be beyond reach.  Peruna is an internal, systemic remedy.  It relieves catarrh wherever located in  the human body.  Thousands of t-asi-s of pelvic catarrh  have, been relieved by the internal use of  Pern im.  Peruna aims to relieve catarrh only.  Poruna is not a cure-all, but can be  relied upon to relieve catarrh in all its  various phases, locations and stages.  Followed Dr. Hartman'* Advice.  Mrs. Lizzie Lohr, 1158 W. 18th stroet,  Chicago, 111., writes:  "1 take pleasure in writing you, thinking there may be other women suffering as 1 did. I was rundown so far that  X had to sit down to do my cooking���I  was so weak. The doctors wanted to  operate on me. At last I wrote to Dr.  Hartman, telling him how I was, and ha  told ine bow to take Peruna. I did as  he told tt>p. and now I am enred."   The   "Jolts"  and "Jars"  Life  are what use people up.  Most people live pretty well up to the  limit of their powers, and so long as  everything goes smoothly that is  apparently all right; but a "jolt" or  a "jar" in the shape of business  worries, domestic anxieties, or an  attack of La Grippe, Pneumonia,  Typhoid, or other wasting disease,  suddenly reveals the fact tbat there is  a sad lack of reserve force to meet  these contingencies and the result is  serious, often fatal.

Mr  McCague expects to go to Vancouver  in a week or two.  ��� Comedy, pathos, wit, bright sayings,  brisk dialogue, clever specialties,  charming soubrettes, artistic vaude-  villians, and above all entrancing music,  with the latest songs, are some of- the  good things said of a'"Jolly American  Tramp," which will be at the Phoenix  Opera House, Friday, April. 12th.  "Laugh and the world laughs with you"  is a true axiom. To be sure you laugh  with the world, see "A Joliy American  Tramp," with Jim Smith as 'Happy.  Jack? .       i      ��� :'y:'y': '.���  Monday night's Calico Easter ball,  given by the Ladies' Aid of the Cath-;  olic church, - was ��� a most successful  affair from every' standpoint, the  spacious hall at the opera house being  literally crowded to the doors.

Moser returned a few days ago  from Spokane, in the interest of his  steam dome separator, a recent invention.  James H. Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V.

No Strike of Trainmen.  After consultations lasting days and  weeks, the trainmen of all railways west  of Chicago reached an agreement with  the representatives of the companies  on Thursday, by which there will be  no strike, as threatened for some weeks  past. The managers granted an ad  vance in wages of ten per cent, but  declined to give the nine hour day.  Both sides made concessions, and  there will be no labor trouble, which  would tie up the business of the  entire west,  ^ HOTEL    UNION *  EHOLT,   B.C.  A New Pity Cumin*.  In "A Jolly American Tramp," E.  E. Kidder, the well known playwright,  who wrote a "Poor Relation" and  "Peaceful Valley" for Sol Smith Russell, solves the problem that has vexed  the rural communities for years. In it,  Mr. Kidder attempts to show that with  kindness and just appreciation of man,  even in rags, and the consequent respecting of his rights, will impel even  the most confirmed "hobo" to think  he is on earth for a purpose. In this  play the author promises a new and  rather novel motive, that of a rascally  husband insuring the life of his wife,  then stupefying her with drugs, hiding  her in an attic of a deserted (and supposed to be haunted) house, substituting another body forher'sandcollecting  the insurance theron. Through the  medium of an ordinary tramp the  wronged wife is liberated and restored  to rights that had been wrested from  her, and the guilty punished. There  is said to be a happy blending of  pathos and wit in "A Jolly American  Tramp." The cast contains the names  of such well and favorably known  players as Jim Smith, who plays  'Happy Jack,' the tramp; Ella LePage,  the dainty little soubrette; Elizabeth  Taylor, the well known comic Opera  prima donna, late of the Castle Square  Company; Elinor Dunbar, a clever  character Irishwoman, and in fact every  part is in the hands of a competent  artist, and the play is said to be one of  the most successful comedy melo-.  dramas on the road this season.
