Boundary's mines have started out  to exceed albprevi-jus records for this  section,' both in tonnage arid value of  output, and the, figures compiled tfor  'the'first quarter of 1905 show that  each month has seen a healthy increase over'the previous .thirty; days.  The smelters also have made' larger  outputs, larger even than the district  mines, owing to the fact that they  handle some custom ores, though pot  a large percentage of the total treated.  In January Boundary mines sent  out 68,074 tons of. ore; -in , February  the total was over 30 per cent,  more, or over 72,000 tons;- m March  another decided advance was made in  tonnage output, being 90,060, 'tons, or  25 per cent, more than for February.  The rate for March, if kept up for the  twelve months, would give a total out  put of over a million tons for 1905,  and there is every reason to believe it  will be kept up in the future.  Following are the approximate figures of the tonnage from each mine of  importance in the Boundary for the  first three months of 1905:  Mine January February   Mnrch  Granby mines 40,450 40,822 55,798  Mother Lode. 13,686 11,680 13,504  Brooklyn...:    6,849    9,262 10,474  Inter-hik (o., ltd.  1������-$����^^  ���6tt$��*����$��*&s����s��aroA*  Rawhide.

February, and  that the Montreal & -Boston's Brooklyn and Rawhide mines4 also" had  healthy,increases'. v. y  The total output for the' district  mines for the three months is in excess  of 230,000 tons, of an estimated value  of more than $i,ooo,ooo,-^all of Avh'ch  with few'exceptions dame*"' from ''���' what  are known as low grade 'mmes.  '��� Iri: this first quartet of. 1905 there  have^ been some features about the  mining and smelting industry of tho  Boundary that are worthy of more than  passing reference. In the first place,  the Great Northern railway, which was  built to Phoenix camp last year, began  hauling ores for the Granby Co. about  the middle of February, and the output over this line of railway now is  over 1,000 tons daily, while the C.P.  liMiandlcs the balance. As the Granby furnace capacity is being increased  by tit least one-third, both roads will  receive ah'increased tonnage at no distant date-        .���  V Another feature was the finalinstali-  atibri of two new ore crushers, one  each at the Mother Lode and Granby  mines giving those properties increased  facilities in this line that will facilitate  to no small extent the operations laid  out, and also reduce expenses���itself  a matter of no small importance.  Part of the three months last past  there have been ten blast furnaces in  operation in the Boundary smellers,  six at the Granby, two at the B.C.  Copper and two at the Montreal &  Boston. At present the full battery of  each smelter is being operated, and  each one of the smelters is arranging  for an increase of furnace capacity at  no distant date.  During part of the winter there was  a shortage of electric power, which is  brought 22 miles from the falls of the  Kettle river at Cascade. This seriously discommoded the Granby and B. C.  Copper Companies for several weeks,  but the.supply is ample at the time  being. It seems to be believed however, that by another winter there will  be all the power desired, for the reason  that the West Kootenay Light and  Power Co. is arranging to construct a  high tension power line from Bonning-!  ton Falls on the Kootenay river, to the  Boundary, a distance of about 80 miles,  and where, ample ' power can be cb-  1;   J < p   i       ,-    3 Z     ,' r  tamed in tbe dryesfseascrt} *  ->,   '- >  KlibOrtJe Producer*.  While the low grade mines of the  Boundary have i Been making new  records in the last * three month, the  high grade mines have also been doing  so well, that interest in that class or  properties seems to be gradually on the  increase.1,. The record that several of  these, mines have" made by paying  every expense from the grass roots, including the purchase price of the properties themselves,- is attracting no small  amount of attention and capital. As a  result of this there are probably twenty  properties,in this class that arc being  operated today.inand around Greenwood and Phoenix, most of them being nearer to the former place." Not  only is outside capital taking hold, but  many local syndicates have been  formed to take up high grade claims,  anc their efforts have been almost universally crowned with a measurable degree of success.  Latterly the Providence and the  Elkhorn, which 'have made splendid  records in the past, have not been doing much. The Pro'vidence has been  having trouble with the boiler, and  will install a new plant, while the Elkhorn has been formed into a limited  liability company by its owners, and  will also put in a compressor plant.  The Bay and the E. P. U. have shown  up well, together with the Last Chance  and the Skylark. The latter has  proved a wonder, in fact, and is now  well up in the front "rink as a high  grade producer and shipper, for the  time it has been worked, ;��� ul it is said  to look better than ever before in its  histoiy. It will probably be in the  dividend paying class 111 the near  future.  Many smaller high grade claims are  looking exceedingly encouraging, and  work is being prosecuted on them in  every direction.  Altogether, the first quarter of 1905  has been a most auspicious one for the  metallurgical interests of the Boundary,  with every probability of the balance  of the year making as good or possibly  a better showing.     1  KILLED IN  THECHUTE  Norman McRitchie Had  Crushed Out.

A meeting of the Board of Trade  was held Wendesday evening at the  Pioneer offiice, both President Crawford and Secretary Mortimer being  present. Some routine business was  transacted, and the Board adjourned  to meet on Friday, April 14th, at the  city hall, notice of which will be sent  out by the secretary. It is proposed  by members of the board to see if  arrangements cannot be made with the  Spokane Chamber of Commerce for a  special excursion to Phoenix this  summer!

Whitside, who wrote on  iehalf of Richard Silverthorne, claiming $250 damages for injuries received  from breaking his arm on School street  last winter, thai: the council declined  to acknowledge the claim, as "it Was  unjust and the arm breaking was purely accidental.  The city clerk was also directed" to  notify unions or fraternal societies to  advise him by rhe 20th of April if they  desired to select plots in the c'ty cemetery. Notice was given by the. mayor  of his intention to introduce a building  by-law.  Additional sidewalks were ordered  laid on each side of the public school  building, and the board of trade was  given the use of the city hall on the  1.4th inst.  School Report for March.

Mildred Bissell         Bessie Heidcrniin  Constance Lowney   Eva Greer  Monday evening Norman McRilchie  had his life crushed in an ore chute on  the No.' 2 level of the Old Ironsides  mine, having taken unnecessary and  desperate chances by entering the  mouth of the chute to dislodge ore  that had become clogged.  McRitchie was a mucker boss, aged  3r, and had been employed at the  Granby mines for about a year, being  a native of Baddeck.Bay, Cape Breton,  Nova Scotia.  A couple of men were loading ore  when it clogged up with a piece weighing a ton or two. McRitchie insisted  on going up into the chute to free it.  The ordinary method is to bulldoze  the obstruction with giant powder at a  safe distance. But McRitchie went  up info the chute, and shortly the h.ige  chunk of ore "settled 'and pinned him  again.st the timbers of the shoot. The  alarm was quickly given and many  willing hands went to the rescue. -. It  took nearly an hour to free him, and  occasionally McRitchie would exhort  the rescuers to hurry. By the time he  was free life had fled, and the remains  were conveyed to the undertaking es  tablishment of Clark & Binns.  Tuesday afternoon Dr. G. M. Foster, the coroner, impanelled the following jury to hold an inquest: G. W.  Rumberger, R. G. Mack, Ed Brown,  J. Logue, M. H. Roy and J. H. Graham, the latter being foreman. After  listening to the testimony of Steve  Swanson, John Miller, Ernest Nelson,  Chas. Augusson, J. H. McDonald and  Dr. Boucher, a veidict of accidental  death was returned.  Malcolm McRitchie, a brother of  deceased, and who had lived here last  winter, was notified of the sad occurrence by wire. He directed that the  remains be prepared for shipment to  Nova Scotia. He arrived last night  and will-accompanythe remains on the  sad journey today,   ���  McRitchie kaves a mother to mourn  htm on the Atlantic shore, besides having brothers at Baddeck and Boston.  He had lived in around Phoenix for  nearly six years, though working at the  Granby mines but "a year, and was  universally esteemed by those who  knew him best. He was a member of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8.  At the Mother Lode mine all the  ore is' being hoisted through the ��� main  shaft.  A machinery plant was installed at  the E. P. U. mine a short time  since.  Next week rwo cars of Skylark ore  will be shipped, one of which will be  high grade.  Next Monday is the monthly payday for March at the Granby and  Montreal & Boston mines.  Regular shipments are going out  from the Last Chance, and tbe Bay  is also sending out some ore.  FOR SMELTER  AT MIDWAY  Option  Given    For Suitable  Site.  Means   Increase of Reduction  Facilities.  No work is being done at the  Providence but will be resumed as  soon-as'the machinery equipment is in  order.  Development has bean started on  the Spokane claim, in "the Greenwood  high grade belt, near the Elkhorn, by  John Mack and associates.  Martin McHale, who has the contract for 100 feet of tunntl on the Gold  Bug, installed a boiler this week, and  will use steam for drilling hereafter.  Last Monday development work was  started on the Mavis claim, recently  bonded by a Phoenix syndicate for  $15,000, and already a most promising lead has been uncovered.  Shipments of ore from the Brooklyn  and Rawhide, which have been somewhat smaller of late, owing to a plethora at the Boundary Falls smelter, have  been slightly increased again this  week.  The Boundary-Fremont Mining Co.  is the latest organization in the mining  line of the Boundary, to have a capital  of $250,000. The Fremont lies between the Providence and the Strathmore.  H. T. Pemberton and W. T. Hunter, who have bonded the Seattle, on  the North Fork of Kettle river, have a  force at work by contract extending  the long tunnel on this property. They  are working double shift.  At a recent meeting of the directors  of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, ex-Senator Warner Miller, of  New York was elected president of the  company. Mr. Miller is one of those  who visited the company's properties  last fall.  In a short time surface work will be  started on the Monarch claim, recently  purchased by the Granby Co. A  glory hole will be opened, and the ore  taken down to the railway siding near  the compressor house by means of a  surface tamway, from 300 to 400 feet  in length. ������;���;  From what has been going on the  last two or three weeks, Midway���eight  miles below Greenwood on Boundary  creek���has been chosen as the site of  a new smelter for the Boundary. As  yet but little has been given out regarding who is behind the enterprise���  whether the Great Northern, the B. C.  Copper Co., the Montreal & Boston,  or some independent concern.- All  have been mentioned in this connection.  A few facts only are so far obtainable. One of these is that an option  on a portion of the Midway townsite  has been obtained, and last Monday  C. M. Crouse, townsite agent, started  for Montreal on this business, and will  be able to make a definite announcement on his return. The Sullivan  ranch is also to be included in the  deal, and this week Engineer McKay,  who did work for the Midway & Vernon railway people, completed some  preliminary surveys at Midway, presumably for the proposed smelter.  It is common knowledge that the  B. C. Copper Co. will increase the  blast furnace capacity of the smelter  this summer, and that Supt. McAllister has had a business eye on the Midway site this spring. It need hardly  be said that smelter superintendents or  managers are not predisposed "to give  out advance information at such times.  A smelter at Midway would be served by both the C. P. R. and Great  Northern lines, and no>doubt exists as  to the supply of ores available from  Boundary mines. Something definite  will transpire shortly.  New Baseball Club Officers  JAMES J.

"A. Jackson, of  Spokane, officials of the Great Northern railway, were also with the  party.  Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Co.,  met the party at Spencer and aecom-  companied it to Phoenix, and around  the mines and works of the company  after which the train left direct for  Spokane.  Mr. Moore, of the firm of Moore &  Schley, will be remembered as one of  those to whom Thomas W. Lawson  paid his compliments in one of his  recent articles on "Frenzied Finance."  The Republc & Kettle Valley Railway Co., commonly known as the  "Hot Air" line, from Grand Forks to  Republic, has changed its title to the  Spokane &, British Columbia railway,  the capital |tock being increased from  ���$1,000,000 to $5,000,000, and a route  having been surveyed from Republic  to Spokane.  Work was resumed this week on the  KcKinley mine, Franklin camp, by A.  D. McPhee, superintendent, and ten  men.* This' is on6 of the leading  properties in that camp, having large  bodies, it is said, of self-fluxing gold-  copper ore. A machinery plant may  be installed at the properly this year.  By next week sometime the full  battery of six furnaces at the Granby  smelter will be fed with the new electric automatic charger, an invention of  Supt. Hodges. While the last two  furnaces are being fitted with this device, the shipments of ore will be somewhat reduced for a few days.  Latest Prices in Melals.

Boundary people are enjoying no  better railway rates than when the C.  P. R. had a monopoly here. But they  are enjoying a decided competition of  service, which is most beneficial in  many ways. This is, at least, one  benefit of having two railways here.  From all indications, there is likely  to T�� another smelter built in the  "'��� Boundary at no distant date, the prob-  ���* able place of construction being Mid-  :> way, where it can be reached by both  the Great Northern and C. P. R.   As  yet little that is definite regarding the  plans is given out, but it is certain the  ores to keep, many smelters in operation for scores of years to come are in  these rock-ribbed hills.

Any intelligent physician will admit  that you don't catch smallpox because  someone else has it, but because your  condition favors it. Low vitality always encourages sickness and at this  season especially, everyone shouid take  Ferrozone, which destroys disease  germs and makes the system so strong  and healthy that sickness can't exist.

A new system of t examining mines  '���new to the Boundary, at least���has  recently been introduced in this section. A gentleman who, among his  other accomplishments, is said to be a  clairvoyant, arrived from the effete east  armed with the necessary documents  to permit him to examine the Mother  Lode mine. Of course, he did it, but  whether his favorable report was obtained through mesmeric influence, or  by reason of the expert's horsesensical  knowledge of geology, does not yet  appear. At any rate, it opens up a  great vista for believers in the occult  and uncanny.  The date of that long looked for  railway race into  the  Similkameen  country is   drawing closer every day.  Well informed persons look for dirt to  be flying on the proposed Great Northern line to that section almost any  * time, and it is equally certain that the  C.P.R. officials will not see the American road enter what has heretofore been  their private preserve, carefully bottled  up, with/any degree of equinamity���  and will, consequently, proceed to do  things with the least possible  loss of  time.    It sometimes takes the C.P.R.  quite a time to move, but when it does  move no time is .Tost in the operation,  ���' especially if there is any opposition in  s the field.  Those tall Russians can give the  Japs pointers on one subject-  running. .  Farmer^ Oliver has earned his indemnity at Victoria this time, if verbosity counts.

Big Bill Galliher was the recipient of  several boquets of late, but we have  not heard of any of them originating  in this part of his old constituency.  Clifford Sifton seems to itch for his  old position in the cabinet, and the  probability of eating crow does not  trouble him. Was it all arranged beforehand?

"  Lead smelter managers at Trail and  Nelson state that, while they are forced to blow lead stacks because of lack  of ore, much lead ore is shipped to  smelters in Europe.  A steel tipple, daily capacity 4,000  tons, will be built by the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co., to take the place of the  one recently destroyed by fire. It is  to be completed July ist."  "Many important amendments have  been introduced to the new provincial  school act and will doubtless be'adopt-  ed. The'schoal year is to close December 31 instead of June 30; clergymen are not eligible for trustees; present trustees holrj office only till next  election; trustees before taking' office  must take election oath; fixed government grants to school districts are to  be slightly increased; special government aid is to be given poor districts,  upon the report of the school inspector  of that district.  Perhaps the most important amend  ment is that dealing with outside pupils attending the city schools, which  question is settled by the city districts  being empowered to extend their  boundaries, in the following clauses: -  "To enlarge the boundaries of city  school districts, as they rnay=deerrr' expedient, in any. case where the adjoining territory.is not included within the  boundaries of a regular organized  school district, sc> as to include any  portion of such adjoining territory  within, the city school districts:"  "Where any territory has' .been .included in a city school district in accordance with sub-section B of section  6, the provisions of this act respecting  public schools in cities shall apply  thereto, and such territory for all  school purposes shall be deemed to be  united to such city, and all property  situate within such territory shall be  liable to assessment for school purposes in the same manner and to the  same extent as if the same were included in the limits of the city municipality."  Provision is also made for the assessment of these outside lands by the  provincial authorities, who will collect  the school" rate and remit same to the  city trustees.  !

It is proposed to issue say  several millions of land scrip at one  dollar per acre, redeemable by any  vacant provincial land.   It is believed  Is real danger because the sputum  of affected persons diffuses itself  through the air and finds lodgment in  the systems of others. If exposed to  consumption use fragrant healing  Catarrhozone, the most efficient germicide known. No case of catarrh can  withstand Catarrhozone, which cures  this loaihesome disease thoroughly.  Cold in the head is cured in a few  minutes, and bronchitis, asthma nnd  lung trouble are cured to stay cured ,if  Catarrhozone is employed.

More than one person in the Boundary will remember John Dorsey, who  operated in this section four years or  more ago. Dorsey followed the C. P.  K. construction into the Boundary,  conducting road houses on the way,  and finally landing in Phoenix, where  lie turned himself to promoting various  mining schemes with considerable success���for himself. Those who listened  to his song are still holding the  "sack."  *   Mf  It i:i said that Dorsey is the man  who actually made the recent sale of  17|Ooo acres of coal lands to the G. T.  R., and thereby secured undoubtedly  a good rake-ofT. After wearing out  lus welcome in Phoenix and taking in  many of his friend? and relatives in  Wisconsin with his tameless wildcats,  he drifted to the coast and was down  on his luck. Then he went north and  endured all kinds of hardspips travelling to and through the Tilkena and  Bulkley valleys. But seemingly he  has made it win once more by his persistence". If Dorsey .had the education,  he would stand a chance of being in  the class with Tom Lawson. As it  was, some of the brightest business  men in the Boundary made "per  manent investments" in his mining  companies.  m  For the second or third time the report is out that Jim Wardner is dead,  and this time there seems to be no  doubt about it. Consequently, the  fund of anecdotes about this well known  character, that were kept on file by the  large daily papers, were brought into  requisition again with numerous additions. For the last twenty years few  men in the mining districts of the  Pacific Northwest were as much in the  public eye as Mr. Warden.  living example of what can be done in  a live town by a live newspaper man  who thoroughly understands his bust  ness, it stands in the front rank. "Old  Man" Simpson deserves the success he  has achieved, and if, with good luck,  he has made few dollars, his host of  well wishers will not begrudge them.  Send all subscriptions to this office.

It must be that  attention is called more than ever to  the Boundary by the increasing ore  output���a good index.  A woman in the States won a prize  by giving the best answer Jo the conundrum, "Why is a newspaper like  a woman?" Her answer was, "Because  every man should have one of his own  and not run after his neighbor's."  There is a movement on foot to organize an Eatonian association in  British Columbia. No one is to be  eligible unless they buy at Eaton's and  stand off the home merchant.  m  James H. Kennedy, of the V., V. &  "E., who has been a familiar figure in  und around Phoenix for the last three  years, or thereabouts, has removed his  headquarters to Midway, and when  asked as to the significance of the  move, gives that smile that won't come  off and with which all newspaper men  are familiar, and which is as inscrutable  as that ot a sphynx, and means about  as much ���and thereby hangs a tale.  A couple of years ago a newspaper  man in Grand Forks interviewed Mr.  Kennedy, sent out his version of the  story on the wites, and it is said that  Mr. Kennedy made a. trip to St. Paul  to square himself with the head men  for things he wai credited with saying,  but which he says he hid not utter.  Now, the canny Scot is ready for any  thing in the shape of a scribe, and he  is a good one who can get much news  from him.  There is a splendid opportunity in  Phoenix for investment, that it is a  surprise lias not taken advantage of  before this, and that is, in moderate  sized and comfortable residences. It  is today quite impossible to secure a  house for living purposes in or around  this city, and if one happens to be  vacated, a number of applications are  at once filed for it by new comers.  Houses of four to six rooms will rent  readily, giving an excellent return on  the investment, and residence property  can be had at reasonable figures. As  to the permanence of Phoenix, and  therefore the safety of such an investment, there can now be not  the least  doubt.  w��  The story of the output of Boundary mines for the first quarter of 1905  ���on another page���will be found well  worthy of study by any one interested  in the Boundary. It is a tula of pro.  gress and prosperity, the kind that is  of service in building up any community.

This stock was first offered to stockholder., at $125 per share, in twenty  monthly payments, less 5 per cent,  and the balance is being offered to the  public at $128.25 per share. Of this  increase, the company intends to use  $300,000 for completing its printing  and bookbinding establishment, $100,-  000 for its equipment and $300,000  for establishing the work of the school  in the colonies. Some years ago the  company issued $500,000 bonds, and  up to Sept. 30, 1904, it had deposited  in its sinking fund $213,984.92 toward  the retirement of these bonds.  The company employs about 1,500  in Scranton, Pa., and about 1,500  more in its agencies throughout the  world. The book value of - the stock  is claimed to be $166 per share, and  wc understand that the company has  earned at the rate of $600,000 per annum for the last six years. Its receipts  from scholarships alone for the year  ending May 31, 1904, were over  $4,000,000. The school is highly re  garded, and we should consider the  stock a good investment at the present  quotations.

J. Patterson.  According to   Statement   of  " James J. Hill.  A dispatch from Ottawa is to the  effect that Tames J. Hill, president of  Great Northern, stated in New York  on Monda/ last that it was the intention of the V., V. & E. Company to  build to the Pacific ,coast as quickly as  the surveys can be, completed and the  work of construction can be carried  out.  It is expected that over one hundred  miles on the eastern end, where the  serveys are nearly ready, will be built  during 1905, and that the whole road  to New Westminster bridge will be  finished within three years.  An amalgimation of the Hill interests, including the Port Guichon-Sid-  ney connection with "Victoria, may  then be expected.  Commodore Nicholson of the V. S.  Navy.

Best way to keep it small is not to  call the doctor, but use Nerviline instead. For minor ailments like colds,  coughs, chills, cramps, headache and  stomach trouble Nerviline is just as  good as any doctor. It breaks up a  cold in one night, cures soreness in the  chest, and for neuraigia, toothache and  rheumatism you can't get anything  half so good as Nerviline for cramps,  colic, and pain in the stomach extends  far and wide. Good for everything a  liniment can be good for and costs  but 25c for a large bottle.  Attractive Pamphlet.  "The Resources and Climate of the  Kootenay, Boundary and Okanogan  Districts of Southern British Columbia" is the title of a very attractive  little pamphlet just issued by the land  commissioner of the C. P.R. Besides  containing a mass ofreliabledataofthe  sort which will be appreciated by intending settlers, the little book is profusely illustrated. The object of the  compiler has been to treat of the particular points regarding which both the  capitalist and settler naturally look for  information when considering the advantages offered by a new country for  investment of capital or for a new  home. There is little doubt that in  the near future Southern British Col  umbia will show marked development  both in settlement and in its industries,  and those who decide to throw in their  lot, whether in Kootenay or Boundary  districts, at this date must of necessity  share in that development.  Taking Desperate Ct-artcei.  It is true that many contract colds  and recover from them without taking  any precaution or treatment, and a  knowledge of this fact leads others to  take their chances instead of giving  their colds the needed attention. It  should be borne in mind that every  cold weakens the lungs, lowers the vitality, makes the system less able to  withstand each succeeding cold and  paves the way for more serious disease.  Can you afford to take such desperate  chances when Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy, famous for its cures of colds,  can be had for a trifle? For sale by  all druggists.
