 Tl*e largest coppor mines in  the Dominion are situated  afc Phoenix. The Granby  Co. employs 500 hion, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000: Two railroads  afford'access to the city.-  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary mining District  ��� -: '��� ������(  fP,     ''<%���  7 C\ 1 r-  ���vVV  -: :-l  �����>*:  The  Phoenix   Pionber   is  published   in   the   highest  , municipality in Canada-  altitude, 4,800 ft. The city  has a population of 1,600,  and possesses first* class  hotels, opera house, schools  SIXTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1915  Granby Stock Rises  Electrolytic copper sold Thursday  io Boston and New York at 16^c.  ���a pound, lead remained stationery at  $4.17^ bid'andI $4.22>�� asked, and  spelter closed in St. Louis at $9 bid  and$9.50 asked, according to market  reports received in Spokane by W.  Nicbolls & Co. The market tendency was- strongly'.; upward at the  close, and there is general feeling of  confidence in the situation.  The effect is reflected  in   the advance of Granby stock, which   sold  in Boston up to $79 a share, closing  at $78.50 bid, and the gain of Canada Copper on the local board.  The  Granby gain particularly is indicative  of restored confidence in the mining  industry,    investors   acquiring    the  stock in hope of an   increase in the  price of the stock, rather than anticipating  dividends   again   soon,   and  Canada   Copper  is  sought  for the  same reason.  That Granby will resume dividend  payments   whenever   the    financial  condition of the  company warrants-  is assured, but the time of resumption is in doubt.     It is said that the  directors have decided  to   liquidate  the outstanding indebtedness before  renewing  distribution   of profits to  stockholders; which meets with general approval among  investors   a*nd  those interested in the company, who  regard such action as good business  policy,  as  it  curtails   interest   payments   and   tends   to   stabilize   the  security.  The monthly net earnings of the  Granby are now in excess of $100,-  000, and with the advance in copper  prices, and the increase in the output contemplated, it is believed that  the profits will.be almost doubled.  Death of Mrs. Humphreys  It is with sincere regret that we  record the untimely death in the  Sacred Heart hospital, at Spokane,  on T-eiesday last, of Mrs. Win.  Humphreys, for many years a resident of Phoenix. Along With her  two children she had been in Spokane  for a few days previously seeking  special treatment for the youngest,  whose    health   had   occasioned   his  Patriotic Concert  Numbs* 40  parents' considerable anxiety of iate  Particulars as to her death are very I part   makes   it impossible to  make  A crowded and highly appreciative  audience assembled in the Miners'  Union opera house on Monday last,  for the concert arranged under the  auspices of the Woman's Patriotic  society. The talent, with the exception of three numbers, was purely local, and the various ladies and  gentlemen taking part acquitted  themselves with more than ordinary  ability.    The   large  number takin;;Ls  nake ^'  meagre ^lp to the present, but a few  clue mention  of each individual, but  lines by wire  received  on Thursday j' due  credit  must be accorded   Mrs.  Fire Wardens Here  A'. W. Prince, chief ofihe provincial forest fire protection service,  accompanied by C. A. Mix, fire  warden of this district, were in,town  for a couple of days this week. They  report the wood licks (his year to  be,unusually troubloomc to cattle  and great care needs to exercised  by persons strolling in the woods.      j  evening would seem to indicate that  the cause of death was  due to hem.  orrbage, brought about   by the rup-  ,tim: of a   blood vessel,   following a  fright   while    crossing   a- crowded  street.with.tlie children.     The news  of "her    serious    condition   reached  hereon Tuesday morning and Mr.  Humphreys left in   the Granby company's   motor  for  Grand ' Forks .in  order to catch the train for Spokane,  but at  Marcus  the sad intelligence  was broken to him that his wife was  no more.      She was 32 years of age  and for  some years   past   had been  actively associated   with the Woman's Auxiliary of St. John's church  and the Phoenix Lodge of Daughters  of Rebekahs,   in   which   latter  she  was a past Noble Grand officer. The  funeral  takes place tomorrow, Sunday in Spokane.  J. A. Miillan for her untiring work  as director of the chorus, and the  same measure of praise is due Mrs.  Chas. Knight for her excellent and  skillful labor as the accompanist,  both are a valuable acquisition to  the city's musical  circles   and   with-  j  Big Sum For Bounties  j   A sum   of over $21,000 was  expended   by   the   provincial   govern,  hient  last year  in   the   payment of  bounties   on   wolves,   cougars   and  coyotes.   These rewards were given  jat   the  rate  of $15.00 for cougars  and   wolves,   and three   dollars  for  coyotes.      Altogether   the   rewards  jwere paid for 382 wolves, 280 cougars or mountain .lions  as they are  ometimes called, and 4138 coyotes.  The   Atlin   and   Skeena   districts  War Notes  Jgot most of the wolf bounty, but in  'neither of them was a cougar killed,  .itlie latitude being too cold for them.  ���The largest number of the cougars  Were killed in Richmond district, in  and around Vancouver. No��� less  than twenty-seven of the big animals  were accounted for in that locality;  one of them ventured  into the city  out whose assistance such a concert Jilimits, and in another case one of  would have been an impossibility, rthem prowled along the verandah of  A spice of humor was introduced |,a house, but in no case was a human  into the  program by Messrs.

Martin Burrell, Minister of  Agriculture, and M.P. for Grand  Forks, appears to have been signally  honored in the United States, when  as the representative of the Gov  ernor-General, he presided at the  opening of the Canadian section of  the 'Panama" Exposition*."' H'e'was"  escorted from the station by a squadron of the. 1st United States cavalry,  and afterwards attended a review  in his honor of a battalion of the  United Slates Marine Corps.  The Misses McKay of Greenwood,  who were visiting for a few days  with Mrs.- Ja.s.- Carter, returned  home on TucscJav.  Winters and King, of Greenwood,  and Mrs. Oliver of the same city also sang.  The items rendered by the chorus  included the national songs of our  gallant allies with, the exception of  little Servia, and whether it be the  weird strains of the song of Nippon,  or the truly inspiring music of the  Russian anthem, together with the  swinging metre of the Marseilles,  all were given with an. equai fidelity  that both surprised and charmed the  audience. The Ironsides orchestra  also \ery generously tendered their  services and whiled away the intervals with a few selections. The  characters representative of the nations were taken by the following:  Mrs. O. D. Bush, Japan; Mrs. W.  Will  I Columbia and Lillooet were the  best places for the coyote hunters,  the former getting 754, and the latter 794 of the animals. Bounties on  13 wolves and 624 coyotes were  claimed in Kamloops districts.  The destruction of so large a  number of predatory animals augurs  well for the future game prospects  of British Columbia. The'saving in  deer" is enormous, as it is claimed  that each cougar requires one deer  a week for sustenance, besides which  must be taken into account its well  known proclivity to kill a deer whenever it gets a chance.  Probably owing to the senseless  circulation of false "intelligence"  concerning Canada's soldiers at the  front, the Militia department wish  it to be distinctly understood that  no report of the death or wounding  of any member of the contingents  will be published until the next of  kin have been notified.  Thos. Monahan, of the Princess  Patricia's Regiment, whose is reported among the killed, was formerly a brakeman at the Granby mine  here in Phoenix. He enlisted in  Winnipeg.  G. K. Ashby, who while in Phoenix, enlisted for the  war, writes- O.  D. Bush   that  he  is. now promoted  to warrant officer, with the  rank of  sergeant-major attached  to general  headquarters.   Sergeant-Major Ash-  by, who is a   veteran of the South  African war, says the boys are glad  to have exchanged the mud of Salisbury for the trenches in France.   At  , the time of writing the Phoenix boys  we.re well and grateful for the Xmas  gifts of six pairs of socks each from  the Patriotic society of Nelson.    He  adds that J. Clifford, who  also  enlisted   here   has been  made  a chief  scout.  Tilton-Bateman  Diamonds In B. C.  The presence in British Columbia  of diamondiferous areas is not so  rare as is generally supposed. Specimens containing microscopical diamonds have been found on the  North Fork  of the   Kettle river; on  I   Canada's Ross Bayonet  In order to allay any fears that,  may have arisen over the criticism  of the Ross bayonets, with which  our troops are armed, the Depart*  ment of Militia has issued the follow,  ing comparative table of the length  of rifles and bayonets used by the  different armies in the war:  Canada���Ross rifle, 4ft. 2.5io.f  with bayonet, 5ft. 1 in.

Mr. Godfrey informed the  Omineca Herald that there would be  no big work going on there this  year. He is going in alone to do  assessment work only.  It is expected that as soon as the  oil flotation process is installed in  the Standard mill at Silverton, the  big silver-lead property will resume  operations again on the old-time  scale, says the Kootenaian.

Why  not  work  on  the idea and stow a couple of hundred  of them  on   every   troop and  hospital ship that crosses the English channel.    It is a matter of history, that the Prussians in  1870-71  carried a detachment of French prisoners on every troop train,rin order  to guard  against their obstruction  by the French irregulars.  Saturday,-April 17, 1915  Perhaps the following news item  from a London paper will explain  the wKy and the- wherefore of the  reported execution of two men in the  Tower of London lately:  ��� ��� ��� ��� ��� ���  i  "In naval circles it is persistently  stated that two electrical engineers,  absent from the Bulwark during the  night of the total destruction of that  battleship, have been discovered to  be Germans and are under arrest.  Their subsequent fate is at present  very uncertain."  Ottawa, as a result of the ' Patriotism and Production movement, that  it has been found impossible to comply   with   all    the   applications   as  promptly as  could  be  desired.    Of  some of the bulletins the supply has  been  exhausted  and   no  time   has  been afforded   for  reprinting, while  of others the quantity  asked for individually  has been   such   that  instant compliance would  mean many  applicants might have to go without.  The situation is,  of course satisfactory, as indicating the success of the  campaign,   and the inability to   respond on the instant with the multitude of applications   is  greatly  regretted.    At the same time it is impossible that the size of the demand  could have been foreseen.    As fast  as possible the requests will  be attended to, but in the meantime there  will   have ���to   be reprinting   and  in  cases  revision.      In   such  circumstances patience appears to be a desirable and necessary quality.

This is permitted on the grounds that the party has only expressed his intention  of changing his nationality, and until he has further fulfilled the further  requirements demanded by the law  of the state he is still a subject of  the British Crown. The United  States government, however, thinks  differently and as an instance of  their opinion on the subject, they  have demanded the release of a man  who has been detained by the British  authorities. It would seem that  the law governing such cases over  here requires some amendment.  A man cannot be a citizen of two  countries at the same time.  Wilfrid Laurier.  Could Feed London  The French and British  societies  for the advancement of the cause of  woman's" suffrage,   evidently    view  the   women's   peace   conference  at  the Hague with a deal  of suspicion.  "The "gathering is said  to have been  directly instigated   by  the Queen of  Holland, .who no  doubt dutiably received the suggestion from her German spouse,   Prince   Henry.     Here  The bulk of the supplies'of Canadian wheat for export- are drawn  each year from the wheat fields of  the prairie provinces. The total  supply may be computed by a study  of the carryings of the railways.  During the crop year of 1913-14,  the Canadian-Northern alone carried from the territory served by  its western lines, 47,295,000 bushels.  Estimating the increase this year to  be 20 per cent, the C.N.R. should  haul out out approximately 56,750,-  000 bushels of grain from the provinces lying between the Great  Lakes and the Rocky mountains.  That quantity of wheat, converted  successively into flour, and into  standard, loaves of bread, would  feed Greater London, with its estimated population of 7,252,963, for  more than four and a half years.  According to the millers, a barrel  of flour, 196 pounds, is made from  4^ bushels of wheat, and, according to the bakers, 187 standard  loaves of 24 ounces each, are made  from one barrel of flour. The anticipated carryings on the Canadian  Northern this season, then represent 12,611,111 barrels and 2,358,-  277,757 loaves of bread. If this  were divided in London each person  in the metropolis would receive 325  loaves. If you divide the population of the capital into families of  three, each family would be provided with 975 loaves. Allowing a  liberal supply of 4^ loaves a week  to each family would extend the  foodstuffs over 244 weeks, or more  than four and "a half years.

The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing- gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores; while in a few localities there are  more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  r  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among" the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is  being directed  to the recent  free gold discovery in'Greenwood, while in the same district  is to be seen one of the  best,equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.   -It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand   Forks properties of the  Granby Consolidated, to-  gether with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In-the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all- sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral-claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor.    The title deeds to these properties, thanks to.a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof'is wanted  of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre'  are also worthy of investigation, and a visit   to some   of its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.      The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  . No locality is better served  with'railroads than  the Boundary district.    At  present-this section  is served  by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C P. R. and Great Northern companies', while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will  be ' commercially curtailed by the, opening of the new  K. V. V.r',  branch of the former.
