Ouce again, as anticipated, the "fat  is in the fire" in the coal fields of the  Crow's Nest Pass, and not a ton of  coal is being mined in the several extensive collieries in that section, either  in British Columbia or Alberta. The  union officers tried to hold the men in  line till the expiration of the 30 days'  notice recently given, but there was  nothing to stop individuals from quitting work, and they have been stopping  all this week, till now the mines and  coke ovens are as silent as the grave.  A vote was taken last week by the men  on a proposition to  strike, rather than! library^ was read, asking "for"financial  City to Pay Firemen When on  Doty.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council, there were present Mayor  Matheson and Aldermen Birnie, Carson, McKenzie, McAuliffe and Porter,  and considerable business of a routine  character was cleared up. A letter  was read from Danny Deane, asking  for reimbursement for expenses in connection with the illness of J. Gwinn,  who recently died in his hotel of erysipelas.  C. D. Hunter and V. M. Sherbino  appeared on behalf of the volunteer  fire brigade, asking that the council, in  its discretion, allow pay for those  actually attending fires. The council  decided to allow $1 for the first hour  and 75 cents for each subsequent hour  for members of the brigade who  attended fires, not to include false fire  alarms between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.  A communication from W.

Lindsey, of the Crow's Nest Pass Coal  Co., and it resulted almost overwhelm  ingly in favor of stopping till a new  agreement was reached.  The Dominion government's labor  department has.endeavored to put the  machinery of the Trades' Dispute Act  in motion, but the coal miners are not  waiting for the result of that, having  preferred to stop at once. . Agents of  the government are now in the Crow,  and a conference is promised for April  23rd, it being the feeling in well informed circles that the strike or walkout will not be of long duration.  Came ef tbe Stoppage.  On April 1st the contracts of the  miners with all the coal mining com  panies in the Crow expired. At that  time a conference was on at Calgary  between operators and miners' representatives, but this conference broke  up without accomplishing anything  whatever���with a stoppage of operations in plain sight.  The miners asked 10 per cent increase in wage's "and'a bi-weekly pay  day. At first they asked for a closed  shop, but this part of the demand was  afterwards dropped.  If reports are correct, the operators  make the preposterous demand for a  cut in wages, rather than an increase.  Of course, the miners would not listen  to that on any grounds. There the  matter stands, and the men refuse to  work without knowing under what  scale they are laboring.  Oae Man tbe Sticking Point.  From all that can be learned, one  man more than any other is the cause  of the general disastrous upheaval in  the coal fields, and that man is Mr.  Lindsey, the lawyer from Toronto, who  was made managing director of the  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. a couple of  years ago, when John R. Tonkin, in a  similar position, suddenly left the  country between two suns, with none,  employer or employee, to mourn his  departure.  Whether the statements regarding  Mr. Lindsay are true or not, is not  known here, but in all the negotiations  it is understood he has been the stumbling block, holding out on little  technicalities that any other operator  would have quickly settled with his  men. It is even said that all the other  operators were agreed on a basis of  contract, but Lindsey held out, and  being manager of the largest company  of the several interested, and being  able to cut the price of coal if the  others settled without his sanction, he  seemingly held the whip hand���-for the  time being, anyway.  It is confidently asserted that if Mr.  Lindsay could be eliminated from the  situation, it would soon be solved  satisfactorily to all concerned. Certain  it is that he is not making his company  earn anything at the present stage.  Wide Spread Effect of Strike.  While the smelters ofthe Kootenays  and Boundary ��� all of them ��� are  affected by the coal miners' strike,  and must close and throw out thousands of men unless the trouble is  speedily settled, the effects ofthe strike  are much wider than ever before. The  railways have no surplus coal on hand  whatever, not having fully recovered  from last winter's extreme shortage.  In fact, the C. P. R., was not hauling  ore out of Phoenix yesterday, on this  account.  This means the general freight trains  must stop running soon, and few or  none but passenger and mail trains be  operated���simply because the railways  rely so largely on the steam coal  supply from the East Kootenay  coal fields, now idle. At Calgary and  through the territories the strike is  viewed also with the greatest alarm,  for exactly the same reason. At Vancouver the same conditions exist, and  the saw mills must close soon, because  the railways have not sufficient coal to  move the products of the plants.  Thus it can be seen that with this  far reaohing effect,  no effort will  be  aid. The sum of $50 was granted to  this worthy object, after discussion by  the aldermen.  George E. Dey wrote the council  that, on account of his intended removal from the city, he had sent in  his resignation to the government as a  member of the police and licensing  commissions, the same to take effect  May 15th.  The city clerk was directed to write  the attorney-general, stating that the  city is now without a resident police  magistrate, and asking for the appointment of such an officer at once. A. S.  Hood was recommended by the council  for the position.  June 5th was set for the return of  the assessment rolls for 1907, the city  clerk being ordered to proceed with  their preparation, having them ready  to submit to the council on that date.  The city clerk was also ordered to insert formal notice in the. Phoenix Pioneer to the effect that all animals found  running at large in the city limits  would be impounded.Yi    -  Following is theiistof accountspresented to the council, examined by the  finance committee and ordered paid:  D.

Thursday  the C.P.R. officials notified ihe Granby  and Dominion Copper and ."snowshoe  people that no more ore would 0e accepted for shipment till further notice,  and for the present not a C. I'. R. ore  dump wheel is turning, where usually  50 cars are brought into and taken  out daily by the C.P.R.  The C.P.R. will probably handle the  B.C. Copper Co.'s Mother Lode ore  for a short time, because the run is on|y  three or four miles, and the company's  smelter has three weeks' coke supply  on hand.        , ���    ,���  Yesterday the Great Northern was.  doing big business hauling Granby ore,  and will continue to do so as long as  the coal supply holds out���though that  may not be for long.  The Boundary smelter  situation, in  brief, is this: Granby can only operate-  as long as the present coke stock lasts,  but a few days, even though the G. N.  secures coal for its own engines.  Dominion Copper blows out its re-,  duction works by tomorrow [Sunday],  evening, having neither coke nor ore.  B. C. Copper can run its smelter  till the middle of May if the C.P.R.  can do its part in hauling the needful  ore���a doubtful contingency.  The Granby, Dominion Copper and  Snowshoe mines will doubtless lay off  some muckers, but keep as many men  as possible on development for the  time being, hoping for an early and  favorable turn in affairs at   the collier-  Resident Officer for-Phoenix  Was Promised.  There is one need in- Phoenix that  the provincial government has not yet  attended to, as promised  by Premier  Mcllride, when he visited this pity last  January, and that is a resident'provincial policeman.    The narrow limits of  the corporation leave out all the. mines  and mine boarding houses, as well as  the mine buildings themselves, for the  most part, and  there is  frequent  call  from the police department of the city,  for duty outside the limits of the corporation.    For all  this  work the city  receives no pay, or if it does, there is  always  a dispute  as to   the account.  To remedy this, the appointment of a  provincial policeman here was   prom-1  ised by the premier, but so far it has I  not been done.  The larger number of men are re-'  - I  TOOK LOOK  ArCARIBOO  Lessees' Chairman at  Camp McKinney  Actual Mining Operations are  Now Commencing:.  sident outside the city proper, and only i."c, uu��or. ,c,t J^*��"/ ��� "  this week, the police had a hurrycall Jorks' ?Poka"e ,"����*�� ��  to take in three disputatious chaps to does not expect to return to  putatious chaps  preserve the peace. And the question  arises where is the pay to come from  for such cases, including board of  prisoners, pay of magistrate, and  transportation to Nelson, if prisoners  are sentenced to the jail there.  The   matter  was  looked ��� into . by  Mayor Matheson, when he was in Vic  Dr. R. B. Boucher, chairman of the  Can'boo-McKinney. Lessees, the business title of the Phoenix syndicate now  having a lease on the old Cariboo gold  mine in Camp McKinney, returned  Thursd-^frqru a visit to the property.  The doctor left yesterday  for Grand  coast, and  Phoenix  again before proceeding east, and then  later in the year carrying out his plans  to go to Germany for a year or two.  While at Camp McKinney, the  doctor made a thorough examination  of the mine, and arranged for a course  of development with those in charge of  the   property.     After    five    months'  les.

" Boundary   Tlllicums"   Banquet   the  Magistrate  Last Saturday.  Last Saturday night the friends of  W. R. Williams, who has been pulice  magistrate of Phoenix since the city  was incorporated, assembled with one  consent at the Hotel Brooklyn, where  mine host Marshall had prepared a  delectable spread for the thirty odd  guests. The menus, in gold and blue,  also had the musical program printed  thereon, each having as well a photograph of the judge. The dinner was  tendered the judge on the eve of his  leaving for Alberta and other points  for a time, and friends were present  from Grand Forks, Greenwood and  Boundary Falls, as well as from  Phoenix.  Dr. Gordon was toastmaster, and  introduced the many speakers and  musicians, and the fun grew apace till  early the next morning, it being the  unanimous verdict that the judge himself was, indeed, a "jolly good fellow"  and a prince of entertainers. The  program stated that the dinner was  given to the judge by his "Boundary  Tlllicums."  toria a month or two ago, but nothing i P����>P">6 the mine, which has thous-  has materialized as yet.

The city council thinks that  another appointment should be made,  in view of the growing population, especially outside the corporation limits,  and which is likely to grow still  more.  oacK irom cau-oraia..

The Snowshoe mine's monthly payday was last Monday, when approximately $7,500 was put in circulation in  wages.  As soon as the snow is off, engineers  will make an examination of the group  of eleven claims in Copper camp,  which have recently been bonded  through Dr. R. B. Boucher.  Boundary's ore tonnage this week,  over 33,000 tons, makes a new high  water mark for nearly a year past. It  also looks like a swan song, with no  more coke in sight for a while.  On April 7th the seven drill air  compressor ordered by the Crescent  Mines, Ltd., for the mine of that name,  was shipped by the manufacturers.  More extensive development will be  undertaken at this property when the  new equipment is installed.

This week the B. C. Copper Co.'s  smelter put through 1,500 tuns of ore  in each of several days, making a new  record at those reduction works, but  Manager McAllister looks for much  better results still. The smelting record this week included 1,837 tuns of  custom ore, and S,oio tons of com puny  ore, making a total of 9,847 tons.  A number of American shareholders interested in the Fremont Mining  Co., Ltd., with headquarters in Spo  kane, visited the mine near Greenwood  last week. The Fremont is to have  an electric hoist and other machinery  and worked on an extensive scale.  At present a mile long wagon road is  being built to connect the mine with  Greeenwood.

The suggestion that  the provincial government look into  the matter is an excellent one, to  ascertain the cause of these continual  troubles in the coal districts. Too  much in at stake to have these things  at the* whim.ojv a few men, whether  they be'operators or miners.  ���^A Difference Worth Knowing.  *.*,  I'M  -907    ARRiX,.  1907  Sub. ���������. Tni.'

The announcement ' that -Was'made,  "early this week'-that the coal'miners in  the Cn.w's Nest Pass country walked  out on strike is-one that-is' not pleasant  to contemplate in'those sections where,  all industries are absolutely' dependent  on the coal mined in that district.'  That the miners shouldhavethepowei1  .to practically 'paralyze trade,or-that  the operators should-have -it-in -their  power to so arrange things-that -they,  could harry or coerce-miners-thatthey  will stop work, and accomplish the  . same undesirable end���should not be.  . Coal is so necessary a commodity  that, from the very necessity oP its almost universal use, it < might well he  placed in the list of government owned  utilities. To that extent, we subscribe  to the theories of our friends, the  Socialists.  For several weeks, the operators and  miners met, by delegates at Calgary,  and endeavored to reach an agreement.-  Supposedly, the true state of affairs was  given, to tbe public. Whether this is  so. .or not, does not yet appear, but, in  any event, the convention broke up  .without accomplishing anything���^andt  with labor troubles ahead all through!  the Crow.  The miners ask for a raise of ten'  per cent in wages, bi-weekly paydays  and the bank to bank system throughput, with some minor details. The  operators would not agree to this, it  seems. Now, then, the new Trades  disputes Act, recently passed at  Ottawa, will come in for a test, its  functions being nothing more or less  than publicity of the fullest kind���  after which lockouts or strikes may  . proceed. The theory is that if eithir  hrfs justice on its side, an unbiassed  commission will brine it out, and the  weight of public opinion will force a  settlement of some kind. How this  works out in practice we are likely to  have a chance to see before long, for  the coal miners referred to seem to  think they have just grievances.  , Whether the coal miners of the  Crow are harder men to get along with  than elsewhere, we have no means of  knowing. And whether the operators  are in a similar class, is also a question,  but, certainly, both sides seem to have  the, knack 0/tunning' cmuck of each'  Now that the disgusting Thaw  murder trial is over in New York, it  will be a relief to 'all decent minded  people' that such a'nauseating scandal  is not served up to them ad libitum  daily with their favorite paper. What  lasting'good was' to be' accomplished  bythewide-publicity of such demoralizing details'of debauchery, is difficult  for many to understand. Its great I  drawback was the effect that it could  hardly ��� fail to have on -the younger  generation'to have such matters flaunted' before them needlessly. Who can  measure the damage done in this way?  One consolation, perhaps, is that the  Canadian papers did not print as much  of-the ��� dive-house testimony as did  those in'the' United States���and for  this we should be thankful.  And thenj-after months of this de-  basing'sort of thing, Harry K. Thaw  is still not'Convicted, with a chance of  hiSmillions yet keeping him out ofthe  electric chair. Doubtless his victim  deservedall-tha't he got, but should a  self-confessed'murderer be allowed to  -gd< free?  What a contrast with the way they  do things in the British ��� possessions.  A young roan killed Whitely, the great  merchandiser of London, with nota tithe  of the cause that Thaw had. The murderer was brought to a speedy but lair  W trial, and in a short time received his  death ���sentence In his case '"brain  storms" were not permitted to influence ��� rhc -juror's. I lis just deserts  were,'dieted out to him, as they should  have been in the I'haw ca*>e. The  difference in the conduct of these two  murder cases' in 'the -two .- countries is  well worth' noting by our American  friends. ' -It'-is time there was reform  in "the'mUrder "trials in the United  States, > arid -that justice should no  longer be .blind.  PROVINCIAL.  Kamloops is to have a box factory.  There is a great demand for lumbermen along the Crow.  The Nicola valley is to have a district board of trade.  . The'fruit growers conference will be  held at Sicamous, April 25th and 26th.  Vancouver has a carpenter's strike,  demand being made for a dollar per  day increase.  Nelson now charges 1 o cents for  single fares on its municipally conducted street car system.  A disastrous fire blotted out Granite  Creek recently, and left the old Similkameen placer camp a heap of blackened ruins.  Last week, Friday, a snowlide at the  American Boy mine, near Sandon,  killed John Hilchey, the foreman. It  required three days digging to find the  remains.  A contract has been awarded by the  Royal Bank of Canada at Rossland, to  J. J. Wood, to construct a brick block  on the northeast corner of Columbia  avenue and Washington streets.  Fred G. Erb, the C. P. R.. agent at  Silverton, committed suicide in his  office last week, Wednesday, by shooting himself with his revolver. Deceased was a man of 53 years of age,  and leaves a wife and child.  G. P. Wells, secretary of the Mountain Lumbermen's Association, who  has just returned from Ottawa, states  however high the price of lumber be  now considered it would be several  dollors higher per thousand before the  fall.  Tea Million Increase.  The Bureau of Provincial Information hits issued a second edition of  Bulletin No. 23, which is described as  a "Hand Book of British Columbia."  It is a very useful compilation, and  ought to be widely circulated. We  quote the following from Page 9:  "The trade of British Columbia is  the largest in the world per head of  population. What may it become in  the future when the resources of the  province are generally realized and  actively developed? In 1904 the imports amounted to $12,079,088, and  the exports totalled $16,536,328. In  1906 the imports were $15,718,579,  and the exports $22,817,578, or a  total increase in the trade of the province of ten : million dollars in two  years."  ��� This is a wonderful showing and one  that will surprise ninety-nine people  out of every hundred who read this  paragraph.

Prices of leather and  material advanced so during the past  year that a man with $10,000 stock of  shoes bought before the rise had a  stock really worth $12,000. Vet the  Slater shoe had to be sold for just what  it was marked. The price rnark could  not be erased nor changed, for the  Slater Shoe Company would not permit it.  So that the rise in the cost of leather  bears hardest on the price-stamped  Slater shoe. The unnamed shoe can  be sold for any profit which the dealer  can impose, while the Slater shoe must  be sold at the prices fixed by the  maker.���Hunter-Kendrick Co., Ltd.,  Phoenix.  Carney Will Ship This Year.  J. L. Martin of Phoenix, B.

The ore is said to average 4  per cent copper, and six ounces of  silver to the ton. There is a large  body of it exposed in the upper workings. A lower crosscut tunnel is being  run to open up the ledge at a depth of  about 500 feet. It is now in 250 feet  and is about one-third completed.���  Wallace, Idaho, Miner.

It is rather a mental shock, though  highly amusing to be gravely informed  by a Liberal organ that the Conservative members of parliament are stooping to villify their opponents with  shadowed hints, and that they dare not  make definite charges.

It rehashes Editor Lugrin's declaration  that the work of preparation on a Sunday paper is practically done the  previous day, whilst on a Monday  morning paper it would have to be  done on Sunday. Have another think,  friend Willcox, it might be done on  Sunday, but it would not "have to be."  Yes, we'll take another think, Brother  Week, and this is the way it works out.  Some years ago", the editor of the Pio  neer  had  the  privilege   (?)  of being  telegraph editor  of a  large sevcntlay  paper, and here was his  schedule of  work:    Began at 3 p m. and was busy,  with the exception of meal  hours, till  3 a.m., the rest of the editorial staff  having completed their work and gone  home a couple  of hours  previously.  This left  the  slereotypers,   pressmen  and newsboys to finish getting out and  delivering the Sunday edition, a matter  of from one to three hours, according  to occupation.     And   this   was   the  regular routine.   The reporters labored  practically all day Sunday for the Monday paper.    The question is, Is more  Sunday   work   required   to   publish  a  Monday daily or a Sunday  daily, and  most any fair minded  man  must confess,   from   this   showing,   which    is  certainly   typical,   that   the   Monday  paper requires by far the greater amount  of Sunday labor���unless,   perchance,  it is desired to issue a daily, the bulk  of the   news   of  which   is  stale.    It  strikes us that the editor of the Week  has several more thinks coming on this  point.  �����>  The Moyie Leader, edited, managed  and  financed  generally  by  Fred   J.  Smvth, has begun its tenth year, and  here's good luck  to it for another decade.    No matter how slow and dull  times were in the past, Brother Smyth  jilways^ha,d a. .cheery,  word, or an optimistic tone in his  weekly���and  this  fact is worth a whole lot to any town,  be a noted.    The Leader is to be congratulated en its age and its continued  optimism.  **>  A new weekly has entered the journalistic field in British Columbia, to  make known the riches of the great  interior. It is styled the Bulkley Pioneer, and while issued for the present  in Vancouver, will this spring be moved  to the valley from which it takes its  name, now coming to the front so  rapidly. We bespeak all success to  our namesake, and if the advertising  patronage of the first issue is a criterion,  it will not enter the journalistic bone-  yard for many years to come.

His full length portrait recently appeared in the illustrated Saturday issue  ofthe Scotchman's Bible���the Toronto  Globe.  �����  T. S. Clute, of New Westminster,  inspector of customs, spent several  days in Phoenix this week, checking  up business with the local collector,  William Delahay. Mr. Clute who  acknowledges to being some 70 years  young, does not look any older than  he did ten or fifteen years ago, and  receives the same warm welcome that  he did in the early nineties, when he  went through what is now the Boundary on the deck of a nimble cayuse.  He says that the many offices he visits  in the Boundary are still doing a cash  business, as of yore, and more of it.  Speaking of customs, calls to mind a  bit of history. The sub-port of Revelstoke was clamoring for a Federal  building, and brought every leverage  possible to bear at Ottawa, to secure  one. The politicians could not grant  it, however���they were too busy sup  plying pap to eastern constituencies.  But something must be done for Revelstoke to stop that clamoring. So  Revelstoke was made a regular port.  The question arises, was this the reason  Greenwood was recently made a port,  instead of a sub-port? It is known  that Greenwood would have liked a  Federal building, but now it is a port.  Many and devious are the ways of the  Ottawa politicians, surely.

Martin in  a recent issue of the Pioneer should be  of vital interest to every good citizen  of Phoenix. : If any had previous  doubts, the experience of the past  winter should convince every thoughtful man that the present-'water supply,  however carefully the ^company may  handle it, 'isKHnsiifficienti in 'quantity  (leaving quality but of the discussion)  for the present^population^of' the city,  even should it contrhue' to be available  infuture years,**whieh many competent  judges greatly doubt.  Now that the trouble is over for the  present, and everybody can wash in  clear water again, I do not think there  will be a disposition to doubt that the  company did all they could to furnish  us with water last winter, but nature  was too much for them.  It is time new to get thinking.  Every man who has his residence here  should promote the discussion of the  question of an adequate water supply  for the future of Phoenix, which has  got past the mining camp stage, and it  is not open to much doubt that its  present population of over 2,000 will  have increased to 4,000 or 5,000 in  less time than it has taken to arrive  to where we are today.  No reasonable person expects that  we can have uninterrupted prosperity,  but the conditions justify us the having  great faith in the future of our city.  But we must have water, and the  questions to be decided, and very soon  too, are how, and from what source are  we to get it, how much will it cost, and  how can it be paid for?  The latter question is, of course, the  key to the whole matter; and while I  might express my own views as to this,  I do not care to use too much of your  space, and would, as one of the interested residents of our thriving city,  gladly hear the opinions of others  whose interests are greater and more  important than mine. I can only add,  don't let this matter drop for a want of  a little pushing, and do not be lulled  into" fancied security because the supply  is once more all that you need today.  A.

Copper seems to be in greater demand at the present time than any of  the other base metals, and in all probability the demand for years to come  will be greater than the world's ability  to supply, says Denver Mines and  Mining. As civilization advances and  the arts and sciences keep step to the  march of progress in this age of. grand  achievement, the demand for the brown  metal wiil keep to the front in the wide  field for immediate consumption the  world over. The vast electrical systems that have bisected the earth are  still growing and will continue for ages.  Ship building, domestic utensils, alloys,  monies, and a hundred other purposes  demand a vast amount of copper, and  as long as trade and commerce covers  the earth with never-ending blessings;  its demand for copper will stand in the  front rank of the world's great staples.  Copper has now reached 25 cents a  pound, higher than ever before in its  history, and it may go to 30 cents in  the next few months. The character  of the recent buying proves that consumption still exceeds production.  Most of the buying now is for June delivery, but sales for July and August  account are said to have been made.  Advices from I ondon state that traders  there are heavily short of "G. M. B."  copper, and that they are being called  upon to make delivery.    As a result of  this the foreign   speculative  market is  much stronger.  When the great copper deposits of  Alaska are once fairly opened, and  made accessible by water and rail, and  the copper belts of Mexico begin to  pour their treasures into the marts of  trade, the world's production for a time  may keep pace with the demand. But  the demand will grow as long as  civilization advances, and in the meantime there may come a limit to the  supply. Reports from the Lake Superior country indicate that there is a  gradual falling off in that great copper  belt, especially among the older and  more developed mines.  There has been a halt in the proceeding of the new Ojibway Company,  and a most profound silence is maintained. It is believed that this is the  forerunner of a further acquisition of  territory.  Extensive operations continue on the  great Calumet and Hecla properties,  and their vast tonnage is well maintained. The same may be said of the  Butte mines of Montana, the Arizona  copper mines, and also in other copper  producing localities. Thus, where one  mine falls off in its production others  are sure to increase their output, even  in a greater ratio. New mines are  being opened every month, and a desperate struggle is going on all over the  earth to meet the growing demand for  copper.

About one o'clock Monday morning  the lire alarm sounded in Greenwood,  and in short time the local fire department was at the scene of the fire, a  Chinese laundry on Silver street.  While the shack was gutted, the rear  part was saved, and later in the day,  when a search was made of the premises by order of Mayor Bunting, the  bodies of three chinamen were found.  They were evidently suffocated, the  remains being also partly burned. The  men slept in the loft, the only escape  being a narrow stairway in the rear,  with a door unfortunately opening  inward.  A. S. Black, the district coroner,  held an inquest on the remains, the  verdict of the jury being that the  Celestials came to their death in the  manner indicated.  The response of the department to  the alarm was prompt, although the  alarm first came in by telephone, and  then by way of the new electric fire  alarm system, only just installed.
