 MMiK  A  The Phoenix Pioneer Jb  published* in tho highest  municipality in Canada-  altitude, 4,800 ft. The city  has .a population of 1,500,  ' and possesses first-class  hotels, opera house, schools  Big Order for Steel Mine Cars  Nearing Completion.  The high-pressure  activity which  has been a prominent feature at the  local machine shops of the Granby  Consolidated,   consequent upon the  receipt of extensive  orders  for cars  to   be   used   at   the   Midden   Creek  mine,   has considerably  moderated,  aud   the   bit,--   order   is   about completed.    The' cars,   of which  thirty  are finished, are of steel and unusually strong, each having  a capacity  of four  tons,   while   the   remaining-  twenty   will    receive   the   finishing-  touches in  a very short time.     The  order for   the   cars was  received in  November    last,   and    taking   into  consideration   the   fact   that the ordinary work of the   shop was   in no  wise interfered with,   the execution  of the  order reflects   no little credit  on  the   machine   shop   staff and its  capable  executive   head,   D.    Stafford.  Funeral of Late B. U. Smith  The funeral of the late Basil  U. Smith, for many years a resident  of Phoenix, whose death after a  short illness occurred on Sunday,  April 13th, took place at the local  cemetery in the presence of a number of the deceased'.*, friends on  Thursday afternoon. Prior lo ilic  interment, a service was held in St.  John's church; the rector, Rev. L.  B. Lee, officiating. ^The deceased  was born in England and for years  followed the occupation of butcher  in both Greenwood and Phoenix.  He was  a-general*favorite around  ;tnJ.-J-.

Ironsides Orchestra Dance  The absence of any pretence at  decorating 'the interior of the fine  ballroom of the Miners' Union hall,  has often been a subject of adverse  comment on the part of visitors to  Phoenix, and the recent determination of the local branch of the  W. F. ofM. to remedy the. defect  was welcome intelligence to the  patrons of the various entertainments that take plitce within its  walls. Geo. Evans,'the well-known  Phoenix and Greenwood contractor,  was entrusted with the work, and  one cannot help but be struck with  the pleasant and tas-teful transformation that has been achieved under  his skilful supervision. The whole  decorative scheme is pretty in the  extreme, with an entire absence of  garish ness, simplicity evidently being the object aimed at. The first  dance since the contractor had finished with the building, took place  on Wednesday under the auspices  of that popular musical organiza  tion, the Ironsides orchestra, and  a enjoyable affair it proved to be,  seventy couples tripping the light  fantastic until the small hours of the  following morning. The orchestra,  which on this occasion consisted ol  five pieces, is steadily improving,  and on Wednesday was kept busily  employed responding to numerous  and persistent demands for encores.  An excellent supper was served in  the banquet room of the building by  J. K. Mecredy, the new proprietor  of the Deane hotel.  Diamond drilling operations are  to be carried on shortly on an  extensive scale at the Silver King  mine near Nelson by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co.  The Rossland Miner say-., that a  new offer of the B. C. Copper company has been made*to E. F. Voigt  for Voigt camp, 60 mineral claims.

A dividend of $50,000 has been  declared this month by the Standard silver-lead mine at Silverton,  making the total distributed by the  company to its shareholders this  year $200,000. Since the company  commenced to pay' dividends last  April it has paid out $625,000. The  capital of the Staodard company is  $2,000,000.  On Thursday, the 27tkof,March,  A. O.

The mine superintendent reports that twelve  tons   of ,ore  are being hauled   nightly   from   the  mine to the  upper   terminal   of  the  No.  I tramway, the   warm   weather  having prohibited shipment over the  road   during   the   day.     The   south  drift on the 100-foot level has   been  broken into and a three  foot face of  high grade ore is   now   exposed  in  the   tunnel.     All   of  the   drifts   are  now   in   ore   and   two    stopes,   the  first opened  in   the   property,   have  been started.  The annual meeting of the .shareholders ofthe Lucky Jim Zinc mines  is advertised to take place at Kaslo  on May 1st. The special report  accompanying the announcement  states that from August 1st, 1912  and ending March 31, which shows  that 1S50 tons of ore had been forwarded to the smelter at Deque III.  The consignments having been  taken from the stope between, the  No. 4 and No. 5 levels. The mine  was closed from Decembar 15' to  March 15, because of snowslides  having blocked the railway.

Hood,  formerly   stipendiary  magistrate    of   [Phoenix,    will   be  pleased   to learn1 of his   recent appointment   to a Similar position in  the northern portion of the province.  According to a Victoria paper, Mr!  Hood's  appointment   was made  in  consequence   of difficulties   experienced in the past in connection with  the  effective- administration  of the  criminal   law   in   tbe    Rivers    inlet  section   during- the   course   of  the  salrrion   fishing season,   and,   while  the   new appointee's   position   is of  necessity a temporary one, it is well  understood  in official   circles at the  capital,   that  Mr. Hood's extensive  experience as a police magistrate in  the   Boundary    will    influence   the  Attorney-General to recommend his  appointmenr"to a much more important post   in   the government ser  vice when his presence  in the above  fishing   district    is    no   longer   regarded as necessary.  Married at Phoenix  The entire absence of resident ministers other than the pastor of the  Roman Catholic church, in Greenwood, will no doubt be the means of  bringing numerous couples intent  on   matrimony   to   Phoenix. On  Wednesday, a travel-stained wed-  ing party arrived in the camp from  the United States and requested the  Rev. Laurence.Lee of St. John's  Church to solemuize their nuptials  With the "exception of the happy  groom, the party consisted wholly of  ladies, so the services of Fred  Graham,- who is fairly handy at  that sort of thing, were called upon  to si  Stabbing Affray  .  One   of   the   first   really   serious  crime's perpetrated  in the Boundary  district for some years occurred on  Friday of last week, when'a woman  named Ellen Palmer, a habitue ofthe  restricted   district- of   Greenwood,  was   dangerously    stabbed    by   an  Austrian, named Steve Betrick." Information of the occurrence reached  Phoenix    a   short   time   after   the  affair and   Geo.   Stanfield,  resident  provincial officer in Phoenix, started  for the scene, but on   his arrival in  Greenwood,   the  woman's assailant  had been run down- and captured in  a shack on   the road   leading to the  Mother Lode.     The injuries  to the  woman,   who   was   attended   to by  Dr.   McLean, are regarded  as serious, but the latest from  the Sacred  Heart Hospital is  to the effect that  she   is making    a    wonderful    recovery.  The city of Toronto will send a  contribution of $5,000 to the Dayton flood suffers.  Released from Hospital  -' Val McDavis, the Great Northern  fireman who was waylaid some  time ago and severely assaulted  by Fred Hall and Geo. Stoy, was  allowed to leave the local hospital  this week. The ferocity of the  assault may be gauged from a  statement by Mr. McDavis to the  effect that when he was struck he  endeavored to spit out a part of his  broken jaw. Although   now   re  siding at home, he still is under  the doctor's care and thinks it will  he a matter of a couple of weeks  before   he  ,   1,774  SMELTER TONNAGES  Granby 24,201     359,339   s, .��tlt W���1BU upuJmore   before   he   wiU    be   ab-e    to  -.������..-     nt   ��c?7 R-V7 .       llu S'vc   the   bashing   bride   away    aPPear against the  accused who are  pTe^anf^ were Oscar  n��w. residing in the Nelson jail.    -     '  and the duty was   $18,185.   a   tolai^^^ . f-= ^~~^~ / '-   -  of $41,793. leaving a  net   profit   of 1*��*' -��* 'Toro(?a^  W���"*>.,   and   the   Officials to Visit HiddeiCCreek  I $35,743.   or   $17 " a   ton.   -Of   thls\ re^er .was sxgned by Winnie Cox \     q.

Chief of police  Roche  of  Pentic-  tou    recently   received   an    anonymous gift  of $50.    The   receipient  states   that  he   thinks   someone   is  troubled with an uneasy conscience.  The    gold   excitement   at   Lake  Teslin   has  created  a  big demand  for sleigh   dogs  around   Hazleton.  As a consequence all the worthless  curs around  that district  are now  doing something for a living-.  According to the amended Liquor  License Bylaw passed  by  the  City  Council no woman may hold a hotel  license nor tend   bar and no women  may be served with liquor in a bar.  It was   found  necessary  to  amend  the   bylaw   to   conform   with   the  provincial   liquor   act  as  amended  this year.  Peace officers may in future under  the ��ew act search any person  they  suspect' of illegally  carrying   weapons and if any person who is not a  native of .Canada is  found  carrying  any of the offensive weapons named  the matter  will be reported   to  the  attorney-general   who  will   recommend to the minister of justice that  the person in question be deported.  Hon. W. J. Bowser, as provincial  commissioner of fisheries, had   been  advised by the officers ofthe depart-  meet at the Harrison Lake hatchery  that the five million   whitefish   eggs  obtained   some  months  ago   from  Put-in Bay through the kindness of  the United States government, have  been most successfully  hatched and  the young: fish liberated in Harrison  Lake.  The jewelry store of C. H.  Wallace was broken into last week  and the safe robbed of $20 in cash.  The burglar first cut around the  panel of the double door at the rear  of the store with a chisel and then  tried to cut around the lock. He  1 evidently found;out that. there   was  that a year or so ago he became a  public charge and was deported. He  came back however, and through  spending his remittances too freely  again became a public charge.  J. Wilson was also started by the  immigration officers on a trip back  to Belfast, Ireland. Wilson is one  of those people who -think that the  world owes them a living, and that  it is foolish to work. He has just  finished a term for vagrancy.  Annie Campbell was provided,  with a passage to that part of Scotland where the shawls come from.  She had during her short residence  in this part of Canada become a  public nuisance, and the police had  got tired of looking after her.  What the Paisley folks will do with  her when she gets back is a matter  of conjecture.  Percy Augustus Webb-Carter was  given transportation to London,  England. He-  comes    from    an  aristocratic family in London, but  he has just finished a term in a  British Columbia jail on account of  an alleged disregard of the laws of  "meum and tuum."  Another deportee was Auguste  Minch. He was started on his way  to St. Peterburg, Russia. He has  just completed a three months term  for vagrancy. Auguste is another of  the class whose members -strenuously object to working for a living.  John Sreba was given a' good  start on his return journey to Austria-Hungary. He has just finished  a term in the provincial jail at New  Westminister for unlawfully wounding.  ���   To Visit Vancouver  On her way to the home waters,  H. M. S.

He was one of the  pioneer sawmill men of the Boundary district, at one time being  owner, with - his brother, of the  present Cascade- mill, and of the  Dominions Sawmills Company's  plant at Cascade. He was some  55' years   of age. The   remains  were taken to Grand Forks.

The Geologist's Clock  Paleontology, says Gas  Logic, is  a   rnuoh   more   important   "ology"'  than    most    persons     are     aware.  Briefly, it is that branch of biological science which deals with ancient  life on the globe.      Naturally this is  a subject  about which  the  average  man  or   woman- knows   very  little  indeed.        It   isn't   strange,    then,  that    a     congressional    committee  should   have   once   asked   Director  Powell   of  the  United States Geological    survey,     to     explain    the  value   of   paleontology.       His   response was   that it was the "geologist's clock," by  which  he tells the  time when rock  beds were formed.  The   earliest   animals    were,    no  doubt,    soft    creatures   of   simple  structure,   whose   dead   bodies  left  few   traceable    impressions   in   the  mud and  sands in which they were  buried.     The   successors   of   these  early   unknown    animals   acquired  from generation to generation protective coverings whose remains in  the   older   rocks   are    studied   by  paleontologists.  The fossil shells in these early  invertebrates indicate the geologic  period in which the beds containing:  them were formed. Each fossilifer-  ous rock bed contains characteristic  forms or groups of forms that determine the period in which it was  mud or sand.  The economic importance of  paleontology has" been repeated^-  shown.     In   the   early   days  thous-  Eating His Own Words  Once upon a time Sir Wilfrid  held other opinions to those he  possesses at the present time, lie  even upheld the judgment of the  Imperial Admiralty. The following  is what he had to say about  Canada accepting such advice:  "This is the question:     'Shall we  go smiftly to the help of the Empire  in its day of extreme   need,   in   the  manner   definitely   outlined   by   the  Admirality; or shall we refuse  that  help and  leave   the   Empire   to.   its  fate while we  go  about  something  quite different, which the Admirality  does not want, and  which   is   likely  to leave   us   still   unarmed   on   the  Day of Armageddon?

An Artful Disguise  The artfulness of some criminals  in the make-up of their disguises  has often excited our admiration,  but the . disguise adopted ' by Mr-  Jay Kum Chum, a Chinese contractor, of Vancouver, is about the  limit. According to a coast contemporary, Chum, who was wanted  on a charge of murder, evaded  arrest for some weeks by adopting  the disguise of a Japanese tailor!  The paper did not state whether the  chink's disguise included a pair of  gold-rimmed glasses; no doubt they  did, but what the remaining part  of the disguise consisted of, is left  to conjecture. The incident recalls a skit on the dime novel indulged in by Punch, where the  hero is described as bursting into  the ship's   cabin with   the   awful in-  NO NAMES USED WITHOUT WRITTEN CONSFMT   *��*���_ _��         ��. ���  t!_Ut15_nt^^  DrsKENNEDY&KENNEDY  Cor.

The key to the problem was  found by determining- the strati-  graphic position, or, as it is called,  the "geologic horizon" ofthe fossils  and the rocks.  Rock beds   that   were  originally  nearly   horizontal   become    in   time  tilted or   even   overturned,   so   that J  the original relation of the beds may  be difficult to determine.       Furthermore, the rock   beds   at    any   one  place do not represent a  continuous  series of deposits, for as most   beds  were laid   down   in   water,   and   as  sea botton may   have   become   land  and   afterward   again   become   sea  bottom, the story of the rocks is not  everywhere clear.  In times of doubt and perplexity  the geologist therefore turns to the  paleontologists for light on the age  and original order ofthe beds he is  studying. The study of the animal  and plant remains that are embedded in the rocks has thus become an  important part of the geologic  work, and although those engaged  in this study are few and rather  poorly paid their work is of high  importance.���Province  It is to Laugrh  Senor De La Barra, the  Mexican  minister   of foreign   affairs, has re  cently   notified   the   government   of  the   republic   of China that because  "conditions   in China are so unset  tied" Mexico cannot possibly recognize the new government.

I saw four killed within a few days,  tw4o on; Blue lake, ,one on O. Bar-  geson's ranch>. and fthe other on J.'  Burns' ranch, The bounty given  by the government, $3.00, is hardly worth one's while to endure the  hardship of mountain climbing and  risk to hunt these miserable and  destructive coyotes. AH the settlers  hope to see the bounty raised to  eight or ten dollars a head, thus  protecting deer and other game as  well as chickens, etc., of the  rancher. I would also suggest that  a bounty be put on the notorious  blue hawk, a very destructive bird  "and nuisance to farmers.
