S.Lundie's Success  The members of St. Andrew's  church, in Phoenix, of which church  the Rev. Samuel Lundie, B.A., was  , formerly pastor, as well as his many  friends in the community generally,  will be pleased to learn of the  marked prosperity which has attended his ministrations in Strassburg,  Saskatchewan. During the year he  has had the oversight of the Presbyterian church in that town, the congregation has risen from the status  of a mission station, receiving aid  from the Home Mission committee  of the. church, to that of a self-sustaining charge, offering a salary of  $1200 per annum.  The Presbytery of Abernethy and  the Ladies Presbyte'rial met recently  in the commodious new church,  where they were most hospitably  entertained by Mr. Lundie and the  congregation.  PREMIER RECEIVES  CONGRATULATIONS  Many Messages Received by, the  Hon. Richard McBride.  Congratulatory messages from all  over the Dominion, and' also from  the British Isles, have poured in on  the provincial premier", felicitating  him on the result of the recent elections. Among the first to arrive  were telegrams from the federal  Premier, R. L. Borden, and members of his cabinet.  Phoenix Brewing; Industry  Phoenix for some years has been,  and still is, the undisputed centre of  the brewing industry of the whole  Boundary district. The modern  methods and up-to-date machinery  employed in the manufacture of  beer by the Phoenix Brewing company have compelled the admiration  ot visitors, .while the product produced by the firm has held undisputed sway, not only in this district,  but in communities, far afield, as  the beverage par excellence of  southern British Columbia. The  most scrupulous caie is exercised in  the manufacture of all their products, and only that which has  passed the most rigid inspection is  permitted   to   leave  their premises.  Connoisseurs who have sampled the  beer of the. Phoenix firm have pronounced their bottled variety as  quite equal to the much-vaunted  and widely advertised brands of  foreign firms. For Easter week the  company have placed on the market  a splendid brand of Wurtzburger,  which for quality will challenge comparison with the best imported  brews.  The  tnnnel  pany's  Crusher Repaired  ore crusher at the No. 3  of the B. C. Copper corn-  Rawhide mine broke down  on Tuesday, necessitating a temporary lay-off by a part of the shift.  The machinery, however, was quickly repaired and on Thursday work  was in full swing again.  B. C. Copper Treatment  The B.C. Columbia company's  smelter treated 12,120 tons of/ore  this week, as follows: Mother Lode,  6,354; Rawhide, 5,608; Wellington,  158.  Farewell "At-Home"    |  The members  of Mountain Temple Pythian  Sisters gave an enjoyable    " At Home "and 'dance   ?on  .Thursday    evening.      The    affair,  which was  in the nature of a fake-  well, was given in honor of Mr. and  Mrs.   Reed,   both  mimbers  pf the  [���Pythian  organizations, who/are  a-  bout to sever their connection with  Phoenix, which has for some years  been  their   home.      The   ordinary  session of the lodge  preceded   the  function and during an intermission  Mrs. Efifie  Marshall,   P.D.D.C, on  behalf of the  "sisters,"  presented  Mr.  and Mrs.   Reed  with a handsome case of carvers with cut glass  rests.     In making the presentation,  Mrs. Marshall referred  to the  loss  the  lodge   v/as    sustaining   in   the  departure of its two members, and  expressed the heartfelt wishes of all  for  their    ultimate   happiness, and  success   in  their new   home.      Mr  Reed, replying on behalf of his wife  and self, thanked the "sisters" for  their gift arid .kind wishes and  expressed   the    hope   that   Mountain  Temple would flourish  and prosper.  A   dance immediately followed   the  adjournment,  H.  Goodwin   proving  an excellent master of ceremonies.  Supper   was    served   towards   midnight, after which   dancing was   resumed until two   o'clock.      Mr. and  Mrs. Reed  are leaving on  Monday  morning,    via   Spokane,   for   Van?  couver.  HUGE OUTLAY BY  GRANBY COMPANY  $2i000,000 To Be Spent for Construction and Development  at Hidden Creek.  B.C. Mining  Construction of a smelter with a  treatment capacity of 2,000 tons  daily at Granby Bay, Portland  Canal district for the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting & Power  company, involving an expenditure  of $1,000,000, will be started in  May. This was the official announcement made by F. M. Sylvester, general manager of the company to a representative of the Victoria Colonist. During the present  year an equal amount will also be  devoted to the development and  equipment of the Hidden Creek  mine at Granby Bay.  The site for the proposed reduction works, which will also treat  custom ores, has already been  graded. A surface tram will convey the ore from the mine to the  smelter at tidewater. Although  only 200 men were employed in  underground work during the past  winter. Mr. Sylvester expects that  force on development and rconstruc-  tion work this summer will reach a  total of between 700 and 800. He  stated that the recent increase in the  price of copper has proved gratifying  and profitable to his company., Its  smelter at Grand Forks   is   running  Weather conditions in the northern parts of the province are very  much advanced this season and  mining activity is already in full  swing..  The Hedley Gold Mining company will begin to treat the contents  of the slime pond which has accumulated during the last six months.  As soon as the weather warms .up  sufficiently the contents will be  pumped back into the mill for re-  treatment.  Thirty students in the mining department of the University of Idaho  will shortly visit the Kootenay district of British Columbia, such trips  being a part of their reg-ular instruction. Their schedule includes visits  to the Trail smelter and War Eagle  Centre Star and Le Roi mines.  The  Royal Standard Investment  Co., Ltd.,  of Vancouver,   have obtained  leases   from  the   provincial  government '  of    several   files    of  ground forming the bed of German-  son creek from its junction with the  Omineca  river,   and   are  about  to  commence active operations for the  purpose   of   recovering   the   gold,  which   is known   to  be  present in  paying quantities.   Their drills have,  just arrived at Vancouver  arid will  be transported   to   the   scene   with  the utmost despatch, and as soon as \ the  the  preliminary  borings have justified it, a dredge will be put to work  on   the   ground.

It is seen that the public electrical  generating stations with their comparative small consumption of coal,  can hold out as long as works of  any kind in a coal crisis. This  means that a suppiy of electricity  for lighting can be relied upon to be  available for such a time, whereas  gas, by reason of the large consumption of coal necessary in its  manufacture, may fail completely,  or in part, at an early stage.  Experience through the time of  the strike has reaffirmed the value  and convenience of electricity. The  medium will cbnsequently be resorted to more largely for lighting  and probably for power work, the  feeling being that the public electric  power stations will be able to keep  going and to produce electricity in  a labor crisis, as long as any kind of  works. More wiring for house and  works lighting will be done, and  ihe makers of motors are counting  on an increased demand for such  machines for driving purposes, as a  result of the strike.

Strictly  speaking, the true total exceeded  half a million, but this season it  is likely to over-run $750,000.  H. Pinkiert, a prominent man in  the business circles of Dawson, interviewed recently by a coast reporter said: The hunt for gold is  becoming more specialized nowadays. The old hit-or-miss methods  represent nothing so much as a  great gamble, with the chances all  against the players. What the  country needs is good prospectors.  By that I mean skilled mining experts, whether trained in the technical schools or by long experience in  other gold fields of the continent.  There are millions waiting for the  men who can fathom nature's secrets to her stores of mineral  wealth." Mr. Pinkiert believes that  the claims along Gold Run creek  give the greatest promise of rich return, and it is there that he is most  heavily interested.  .Regular communication at 8  p.m.   Second   Thursday of  each month.

The furs represented a season's  hunting of the Kitlo tribe. The  minx fetched as high as twenty  dollars for each pelt, while the average for the bear hides was six  dollars.

King's Thanks to B. C.  - Premier McBride lias icceived the  following communication from Sir  Joseph Pope, secretary, for external  a flairs:  .Saturday, Apkii/6, 1912  Senate Versus Commons  If there is to be a trial of strength  between the Conservative majority  in the Mouse of- Commons and the  Liberal majority in the Senate, the  upper house will not find the government shirking the encounter. The  second chamber has gone ffunning"  after all the more important legislation involving- new features of mini-  terial policy, sent up from the Commons. The bill authorizing federal  aid to the provinces for the building  of good roads has been amended.  The same sort of treatment seems  to be in store for the bill to assist  the provinces in the encouragement  of agriculture.  The idea of the Liberal senate appears to be that in the desire to  close the session the government  may be willing to accept these  amendments coming from the senate, although the same amendments  were refused when proposed by the  Opposition in the House of  Commons. v  The attitude of the senate majority is understood to have been  dictated by Sir Wilfred Laurier who  has been paying rather frequent  visits to the precincts of the upper  house recently for the purpose of  coaching his followers there.  What will the government do? It  was officially stated the other day  that tbe government will not yield  an inch on either the Highways'  bill or the measure in regard to  agriculture. If the Liberal Senate/  at the bidding of Sir  Laurier, is looking  for  a  have ii in command from hi*,  royal highness, the governor-general  to.inform you that upon the King's  return from India, Mr. I-Iarcouri  duly laid before his majesty the address signed by you on behalf of the  people of British Columbia. I am  to acquaint you that his majesty  commands that an expression of his  cordial thanks should be conveyed  lo you and through you to the people of British Columbia."

Some of them struck the  miners' cottages and crashed through  the roofs to the floors. Fortunately  no one was injured as the places  were unoqeupied. The fissure in  the mountain top is widening and  dozens fearing a repetition of the  disaster of nine years ago are moving to other points. The Federal  government have now officially notified the provincial government of  Alberta that the district is unsafe,  but th.e* latter are slow to act, not  wishing'lo force the abandonment  of $3,600,000 worth of mining  machinery, buildings and workings.

These will allot the grants  to the provinces in proportion to  population.  Canada's Share  During the discussion on the navy  estimates in the Imperial House of  Commons, last week, Sir Gilbert  Parker said he regretted that the  First Lord of the Admiralty had  omitted to take notice of one aspect  of the navy policy. This was the  co-operation of the oversea dominions. He invited the right hon.  gentleman to say whether the government had any further information as to the intended policy of the  Prime Minister of Canada and his  government with respect to the imperial naval policy. It was because  the dominions thought their efforts  despised or held in slight regard  that I hey hadn't co-operated in a  more effective and substantial form.  Norton Griffiths said there was  undoubtedly a belief in distant parts  of the empire that their co-operation  was looked upon as of very small  consequence, and hoped the First  Lord of the Admiralty would make  some clear and precise statement  that the Admiralty did welcome the  co-operation of the Dominions. > It  was a cry often heard in Canada  bhat if the co-operation of the dominion was desired they should  have some representation. Canadian  ministers were shortly expected to  visit this country, ancl he urged that  the}- should be sent back with a  message to assure Canadians that  the British Admiralty wanted their  co-operation and  would   give   them  der, and it was conceded that although the local team seemed the  strongest aggregation available in  this territory, they were completely  outclassed."  Military Funeral  With full military honors, the  body of Major Husband of Vernon,  who was killed by a fall from his  horse while on parade at Winnipeg,  was borne from the barracks to the  depot for shipment to Vernon. The  funeral service was held in the  officers' mess, and was conducted  by the Rev. F. C. Heathcote, of  All Saints church, Winnipeg. The  casket was conveyed to the station  on a gun carriage, the cortege being composed of the Strathcona  Horse.
