 fffli&r  The largest copper mines in  the Dominion are situated  at Phot-nix.- The Granby  , Co. employs 500 men, and.  has, a monthly pay toll'of  over $30,000, while the Raw- -  hide pay roll is $18,000.   /'  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary Mining District  * MW. 1  ���, ^y 1  FOURTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1913  Number' 38  VANCOUVER MAN BUYS  THE DEANE HOTEL  J. K.  Mecredy' Has  Extensive  Experience as "Mine Host"  in France and Australia.  ��v  The popular and old-established  city hostelry, tbe Deane hotel, has  changed hands this week, the new  > proprietor, j. K. Mecredy, assufh-  ing control at midnight on Tuesday.  Mr. Mecredy comes to Phoenix*endowed with a thorough and practical experience of hotel management  acquired not only in British Columbia, but in France and Australia.  Prior to his arrival here he was  proprietor of the well-known Baillie  House at Lytton, where his genial  courtesy and solicitude for the.com-  fort of his guests made that.stopping place a favorite one with the  travelling commercials, who hold  Mr. Mecredy in high esteem.  While the hotel's former proprietor is to be congratulated on the-  deal just concluded, the numerous  patrons of the establishment are not  a whit less fortunate in the personality of the new purchaser, who announces his intention of placing his  new acquisition in the front rank'of  Boundary hotels. The hotel contains  34 rooms, is steam heated and substantially furnished throughout,  while every convenience has,been  provided to meet the special requirements of its mining patrons. In  addition to the hotel, the deal also  includes the large residence immediately adjoining the hotel,' which con-  , tains  an   additional ,16  rooms.'. A  To Rush Work at Hidden Creek  uPage Boyles, of the firm of Boyles  Bros., o'f Spokane,,-whose outfits  have been operating on the Granby  property here in ^Phoenix for the  past twelve years, returned this  week from a visit ' to his contracts  at the Hidden creek mine, where  that important adjunct 'to present- day mine^ development, the  diamond drill, is being used with  much the same success as that which  attends its use here in Phoenix,  and where, under Mr. Boyles  personal supervision, upwards of  of fifty thousand feet of drill holes  have been negotiated in determining  the extent and value of the ore  Queried as to the progress  B. C. Mining  hQ-ii  *f^t-^**^fp����r-*-:  bodies  of affairs at Hidden creek, ~Mr.  Boyles states that he notices an improvement every time he visits the  Anyox property.' "It is during the  coming summetx when the big  things are expected in* and about  the new mine," said Mr. Boyles.  '���As soon" as the snow goes, operations will be commenced on a scale  perhaps never witnessed in the  development ot\ any mine in the  Dominion->( Mr. Boyles also iu-  forms us that the preparations  providing for the accommodation of  the expected addition to the working force, are well under way, while  extensive shipments of machinery  and other material are in transit.  Altogether, according to Mr.  Boyles, it would seem as if the company intended to make good its'  prophecy of the Hidden creek mine  joining the list of shippers some  time before the eud of the coming  summer.  William Whitford has taken a  lease for two years' on the San  Francisco mine in Rossland from  E. W. Martin and-E. D. Martin of  Winniepg, and "Fighting" Joseph  Martin, formerly of this province,  but now a member of parliament in  England. There is a small shaft  and some surface excavations on  the property, the under ledge  carries gold, silver and copper, and  assayes give values of about $30  to the ton. .Mr Wilfrid will start  work soon with a small force of  men. The San Francisco was  purchased by Joseph Martin and  brothers in 1896, for $25,000.,  Martin Salmon and associates were  the vendors of the property.' The  San Francisco adjoins the White'  bear; and is located on both sides',  of the tracks of the Red Mountain;  Railway, west of the Black Bear-  grounds.  The Silver Hoard mining com-,  pany operating the Silver Hoardo  mine, near Ainsworth, is planning  to install a big motor-driven hoist,  with automatic dumping skips, an  air compressor plant capable of  driving a battery of eight machine  drills and a sawmill adequate to  provide lumber for the needs of the  property as soon as the snow  melts.  A surface tram, a half mile long,  will be constructed also to trans-"  port the ore from the silver Hoard  workings to the head of the tram-;  way from the Canadian Consolidated  company's^  No.  _1~   mine    to   "the  . Werner's Orchestra Dance  Ah   orchestra   consisting   of six  pieces    entertained     one    hundred  dancers in .the Miners'  Union  ballroom   on   Tuesday   evening,   when  F. Werner gave one of his popular  and highly successful social dances.  The  music  rendered   on   that   occasion   proved conclusively the absurdity    of    sending     outside   the  Boundary  for  an    orchestra  when  such   a   fine   aggregation   as   that  presided   over  by  Mr.    Werner   is  within  such  easy   reach.       Harold  McCoskric   filled the  billet of floor  manager    to     the   satisfaction   of  everybody,    especially    the   ladies,  and the whole affair passed off without a hitch, dancing  being kept up  until    three  o'clock   the   following  morning.    Mr. Werner, who leaves  for Europe  sometime   in May,  intends   to    give  another    dance  on  May   12th.      The   following   comprised the members of the orchestra:  Chas.    McKay,   Albert   Biner,    F.  Werner, and Messrs. Ware, Smith  and Davies of Grand Forks.  Death of James Stalker  The death took place on Thursday morning, at the General hospital,  of James Stalker, for many years a  well-known resident of this city.  The deceased resident was removed  to the above institution on March  25th, suffering from a severe attack  of pneumonia, from which he  seemed unable to make any headway. On Tuesday last his condition  became very serious and the worst  fears of his relatives were realized  on Thursday when  the dread reaper  Scandinavian Festivities   '  The  local  members  and , friends  of the S. -H. and E. F. society held  high   festival    onr Sunday  evening  last,   when   the    postponed   Easter  festivi^jes took place in their rooms  on Ironsides avenue.    The numbers  present    exceeded    anything   since  the order .was established in Phoenix,   visitors    being    present  from  Grand Forks, Mother Lode, Curlew  -and Fife.    The committee in charge  had prepared a varied program and  the  merriment commenced   with a  laughable farce entitled  "A Jealous  Fool."     Mrs.   Ed.   Melrudd,   Miss  Pearson,   Messrs.   A.  O.  Johnson,  Oie  Nordin and John Ericson comprised the  cast  and gave an excellent  representation  of a household  disturbed by the eccentric jealousy  of an old  fool of a husband (A. O.  Johnson).      During the evening the  guests    were    entertained    to   an  elaborate supper and dancing whiled  away   the time until  the  following  morning.      The Ironsides orchestra  played for the dance.  B. G. COPPER COMPANY  TO BUY PROPERTIES  Net Earnings for  Fiscal Year  ending; Dec. 31, 1912, was  $425,985.       ;~  High Assays from Sandon Mine  Some fine samples of silver-lead  ores were recently received by Jas.  Marshall from the Dunedin mine,  four miles from Sandon^ in which  property he and another local party  are heavily interested. The ore,  which plainly shows the footwall,  has a width of upwards of four  inches and on being assayed gave a  return of 231 ounces of silver and  78.06 in lead. Work on the property has been temporarily suspended   owing to   the  danger  of snow-  The directors of the British  Columbia Copper company have  voted to pass the 3% dividend  distribution which would have been  due in April. The following statement has been issued:    .  "Net earnings for the fiscal year  ended Dec. 31, 1912 after charging  off all ordinary development work  on the proprietary mine, were  $425,985. During    the     samel  period the company paid on account  of new properties and in exploratjon  and development $229,489.  The company has also under option numerous properties upon  which payments are to be made  during the current fiscal year, and  the board deems it best to use  available net revenue for that  purpose, which is thought essential  for the purpose of supplementing  ore reserves, and, therefore, considers it expedient to defer distribution to shareholders for the  present."

In the past year, according to a  report of the chief provincial  forester, over twenty per cent of the  forest fires attended ,to by the  rangers were caused By campers. >  The list which appears in the  annual report of the forest branch  shows that fires originated as  follows:  Campers   38  Railway locomotives .... 34  ��� Lightning   23  Donkey-engines    11  Railway-construction ... 11  Public road construction. 9  Uncontrolled permit fires.    8  Smokers     7  Accidents.     6  Logging railways         6  Prospectors.,     3  Indians      3  How  many  of the   188   fires  of  which the causes are still unknown  were the result of an untended camp  (ire .is  open   to  surmise,   but as in  most of the other risks such as railway  and    road   construction,   and  logging operations, the existence of  lire is  at once known,   the camper  may be justly  held, to, account for a  very large proportion of the season's  conflagrations. ���  ..   Stringent .regulations have been  passed by the board of railway commissioners  of Canada   to cover the  risk  of  new  railroads   now   under  construction   in, the   province;  the  patrol   has   been^ doubled   on   the  rights  of way, and  every possible  precaution    urged    upon     logging  operations.     The  forest  branch  is  endeavoring to co operate  in .every  way with  those   who have work,to  perform which is attended with danger  to   the  forests.  , The  greatest  danger  of/ all,   however,    is   that  caused   by  the carelessness of the  campers, and  the  danger can only  be met by- an increase  of vigilance  on the - part of. those  who  use the  woods, for either pleasure or profit!'  year    the   officers * of   the"  This  forest branch expect a harder reason than ever before. ; The very  conditions of dampness and consequent  heavy .growth, of grass and  i .history'  the   standpoint  will    combine  '-   r.  , {smile.

D.  Miller. The birds were/immediately  re-shipped to Victoria.  Mr. Miller, the custodian of the  songsters, stated that the voyage  across the Atlantic "had been very  rough, and had proved too much for  two hundred of the little birds, that  number having died on the sea trip.  The cages had been stowed in the  forecastle of the vessel, and the  pitching and/tossing of the ship  made it difficult to keep the water  in their drinking troughs. The  birds were also badly shaken up.  The principal mortality occurred  among the larks, of which ninety-  six succumbed. This was due partly to the wild nature of the little  prisoners, who could n��t brook the  continued close confinement. However, over two hundred larks came  through safely, and the country  around victoria will be brighter for  their melody. .  In addition to the larks, the birds  comprised  blue  tits,  gold   finches,  robins and linnets.      The robins, on  account  of ' their  pugnacious  proclivities,   were   kept   separate from  the remainder of the birds.  ' The task oi catching and forwarding the birds  was carried out by S.  Shackleton   of Leadenhall  market,  London.     He  started   the work of  collecting  them   last  October, and  on March 3, they left on the steamer  Montcalm.    A  few   of the linnets,  goldfinches  and robins  are  in   the  care  of   W.    H.

Panama-Pacific Exposition  The^suggeslion has been made to  the Canadian government by the  authorities of the Panama exposition that a collective exhibit  of Canada's resources agricultural,-  mining, and forestry���be made,  demonstrating to the homeseeker  and investor the splendid opportunities awaiting them in Canada,  particularly in the Canadian Northwest. The opening of the canal is  expected to direct to the Western  coasts hundreds of thousands of  desii.iblc immigrants from Emrope  and doubtless thousands of these  will seek new homes in the Canadian Northwest. As the San Diego  Exposition is designed to direct  these to places of greatest individual opportunity, it is thought that  Canada would add greatly to, the  population development ot i the  Northwestern provinces by a demonstration of the wonderfully rich  opportunities to be found in these  sections.  In the event of Dr. Friedmann being able to accept the invitation,  assurance is given that he will he  assisted with pleasure by Dr. Vroo-  man and. his staff, while all facilities  will be placed at his disposal by the  governmental , authorities. The  sanitarium at . Tranquille, it is  mentioned for hi��> information, has  been established and is conducted  upon extra-modern lines, vand the  resident superintendent and all  associated with him in th�� work are  keenly and intelligently enthusiastic  in j all pertaining to advance in  methods for the eradication of the  great white plague.  ;<v  DO YOU  WANT TO  MARE MORE MONEY  "    Sandon Receiver Appointed  Mr. Charles W.

IN placing your Newspaper Advertising,  place the greatest value on the paper with the  greatest influence on'its readers.  m  Use the medium that is watched for every  week by the people of your community.  Spend the money with the paper that is  read with interest. It reaches the people and  you know that you're getting into the homes of  the people you want to reach.  Quality has not yet become popular, but  the day is not far distant when this will be one  of the main features'of Newspaper Advertising.  In the meantime business men, who have faith  in quality, are reaping huge returns.  Ill"  Remember first, last, and always, that circulation counts; that quality of service gives  quality in returns. The high priced medium  pays. Like the high priced servant, you will  find money well expended.  You can make ��� more money by selling  more goods; you can sell more goods by advertising in The Phoenix Pioneer, whose constituency is the Boundary district.  The way to test the truth of this statement  is to send us the copy for your ad. right away.  The experience would not be an expensive one,  and satisfactory results are assured.  We use the most modern type and machinery money can buy, combined with thorough  workmanship���a combination which enables us  to do the best work at a moderate cost.  ^sJ  352.00 per year, in Advance : $2.50 per year, United States  (i. no  i ���''i  THE   PIONEEB,    PHOENIX,.

More Blue Laws  Declaring that the  immodesty   of  theattire worn   by   women   on, the  streets  and   in  public places is the  cause of "a great wave  of immor-  ality   now sweeping over the coun-  try,"    Representative     Louis     H.  Chappelle  of Cincinnati introduced  a   bill   in   the   lower   house   of the  legislature      providing      for      the  appointment by the governor  pf a  commission   of three   members   to  "prescribe the   fashions / to be worn  by women in the State of Ohio."   '  Under the provisions of the bill  the proposed commission would be  compelled to fix limits on 'decollette  dresses so that "not more than two  inches of the neck below the chin  shall be uncovered." Another  clause of the measure provides  "that transparent stockings shall  not be displayed or worn in  public places."  Another provision of the bill states  that "it shall be unlawful to display  or wear any outer garment trimmed  or combined with lace, insertion or  any other kind of embroidery, mesh  or net through which the colors or  texture, of the skin may be distinguished without having the lace  or other material backed with  opaque material."  Members of the proposed commission, according to the bill,  would have to be between 40 and  50,years  of age.- Not  more  than  to be seen in the Opposition ranks,  Colonel McLean a staunch Liberal  having sided with the government;  .while such influential Liberal papers  as the Montreal Witness, Winnipeg-  Tribune, St. John's Globe and Montreal Herald are all outspoken in  their support of the Borden policy.  ������ * ���   Important to Mining: Investors  The necessity of knowing at least  a little about the   mining   business  before investing heavily is suggested by the  following  story  sent  usj  by an engineer  in   Honduras,   says  the Engineering and   Mining Journal:        A  prospector had   brought  in   a   sample   of   supposedly   rich  gold ore   for   examination   by   an  assayer.

It is all in the interpretation  of the act, . however. The section  of the code dealing with this point  reads: ��� - ��� ���   , !  ^'It shall be unlawful for any person to use or have in their possession a pump or repeating shotgun  of any kind with a magazine capable of holding more than one cartridge.".  Therefore* according to the reading of the act, the standard repeating shotgun is lawful providing the  magazine is blocked so, that it will  accommodate only one shell. The  same law is also in force at the present time in the State of New Jersey and, a number of sportsmen  there still stick to their favorite  repeating shotguns, but have made  the change to conform with the act  by blocking the magazine so that  one shell can only be inserted. The  act does not'forbid the use of the  double-barrelled shotgun.  **L  That "Impehding" Election  Liberal newspapers are still deluding their readers with tbe hope of an  election this year.

Fine Specimens of Native Silver
One of the finest pieces of native
silver ever brought to town, came in
on Monday from the Utica, says tbe
Kootenain (Kaslo).    It was brought
down by Jean   Brochier,   the  shift
boss  at the   big  12.MtIe property
The piece is about  fourteen   inches
in length and of irregular  size,   the
streak being about the thickness of
a fifty cent piece.     It was taken out
of a big strike ot  three  feet  aud  a
half of galena* in'the   big  or  west
lead.    The property is   looking  exceptionally, fine    in    all    directions,
according   to   Mr.   Brochier.     The
continuation of the southern drift pn
the east vein has opened up another
ore   shoot    which    now    averages
about three inches in width   and   as
the   ore on this property appears to
run   iu  and   out   in   long    regular
shoots, an increase of this ore body
is looked for as the drift progresses.
Hughie   Chisholm,    Of    Chisholm
Brothers,   who   have a lease on the
apex workings  o( the   Utica,   was
also in town the   early   part  of  the
week.      They are taking out ore on
their lease right along and    sending
it down by their tram to the base of
the peaki   where   it   will   be   transferred   to   other   conveyances   -for
forwarding to the tailway. '..'■'*
Ore shipments have started in
earnest from Ainsworth, the No. 1
sending out a inimbet of cars while
the Silver Hoard shipped two.
There is <t uii of ore lying upon the
wharf made up ot lots owned by the
No. 1, Silver Hoard and' A. D.
