I  TOE ?&IG  STORE  Books to Be Audited and Properties Investigated  In a letter dated April 5th to stockholders and bondholders of the Dominion Copper company, B. VV. i Lin  coin, chairman of the protective committee, dissenting stock and bondholders, gives the following report:  The response to the request of the  Committee that all  stockholders  and  bondholders contribute 5 cents or more  per share on   their stockholdings, and  in like proportion on their bond  holdings, to  defray  the  expenses  of  this  movement, has  been  most gratifying.  In accordance with its plans, therefore,  the Committee at "once  took  steps to  investigate the actual   situation in the  Dominion Copper company; it has engaged   the services  of  Messrs. Price,  Waterhouse & Co., Chartered Accountants, and this firm is at present exam  in��ng  and   auditing   the   books   and  accounts of the company for the Cbn>  mittee; it has sent* an  engineer  cf the  highest standing in  his profession to  examine the mines  and   proper ties '���(  the company in  British   Columbia; it  has notified the Committee's  counsel  to take all the legal steps necessary to  protect the interests of the stockholders  and bondholders  represented   by  the  Commi'tee.  As soon as the full 'reports of the  Chartered Accouritarits'ahd of the engineers examining the mines are received, the information obtained will  at once be laid before the stockholders  and bondholders. In this connection,  however, the Protective Committee der  sires.to impress upon everyone that the  undertaking which it represents is and  should be-a popular movement and  thoroughly representative of the best  interests of all together, not of the particular interests of a separate few.  Carried to a successful conclusion, the  efforts of the dissenting stockholders  and bondholders should result in the  complete rehabilitation of the Dominion Copper company, and its. transformation into a true investor's company, conducted in the interests of  every holder of its securities alike. To  this end the Committee desires to have  the hearty co-operation of all the stockholders and bondholders without exception, not the enthusiastic encouragement of only-a-part'of them, even if it  is a large-part. Itjs-hoped, therefore,  that all stockholders and bondholders  who have not sent in their subscriptions  to the Committee will do so at fieir  earliest convenience.

The  Doukhobor society, some time since,  purchased 3,000 acres in the neighborhood of Brilliant, which will be devoted principally to fruit and vegetable  raising. Already they have about 300  acres cleared and are now setting out  fruit trees. Besides this they purchased  a 1000-acre farm near Grand Forks)  which will be devoted principally to  fruit raising. A large number are  coming, in addition to those already  there.

He  was taken to the hospital, but succumbed to his injuries the same evening at 8 o'clock. He was an unmarried man of 30 years, and was a  resident of Greenwood.  0. T. P. TRAINS TO VANCOUVER  General Manager Chamberlain Predicts They  Will Be Running la Five Yean.  E. J. Chamberlain, general manager  of the G. T. P. and party left Vancouver for the east on Thursday. Before leaving he said: "Within the past  few days .instructions have been given  our chief engineer to send out an exploratory party to report on the most  direct and feasible route for a railway  from our main line to Vancouver.  The surveyors will start as soon as the  weather conditions permit. They will  be occupied at the task for a good  part of the summer. It is likely that  the route will run southwest from a  point some distance this side of the  Yellowhead Pass. I teel quite safe in  predicting that our trains will be running into this city within five years."

Hall, who eight years ago  was one of the publishers of this paper,  and who has just taken up fruit raising,  has secured 100 acres of land near  Bossburg. This spring he will set out  some r,5oo apple and peach trees, or  about 30 acres in orchard, using but  two standard varieties of each, and  later intends to set out more.  Mr. Hall, since he left Phoenix, has  become an expert linotype operator,  giving up a good position in the  Spokesman Review to take up fruit  raising, on account of failing health.  Besides his orchard he will also raise  DEAL REPORTED ON  AT NICKEL PLATE  Resumption   Has   Been   Retarded by Cold Weather  The resumption of operations at the  Nickel Plate mine at Hedley has been  retarded 'on, account of the cold  weather interfering.with the running of  water through the flume to the reduction mill. Work at the mine, however,- has already commenced, the compressor and tramway being operated by  steam, and the ore-bunker at the mill  is being filled. Several former" employes left Phoenix this week to resume their former positions, having  been summoned by wire.  There is a persistent report in min  ing circles that some important action  bearing on the', future of the Nickel  Plate is being considered by the Daly  estate, the owners of the property.'The  management and operations of the  property are of considerable interest,  inasmuch as they denote the prosperity  of the Similkameen district, and its  existence is said to have been a potent  factor in the building of the V.V.;& E.  railway extension. The mine is the  la: gest gold property in Canada.  The property ; is operated by the  heirs of the Marcus Daly estate through  companies known as the Yale Mining  company and Daly Reduction company, the latter corporation operating  a 40 stump mill,T cyanide"plant, etc.,  and also furnishing light for the town  of Hedley.  Negotiations for the sale of the  property are reported. under way, and  from, another source it is stated the  property will be retained but the companies' policy changed, the mine being  developed to the extent of thousands of dollars, surrounding claims  prospected, etc., instead of relying for  earnings on the ore now in sight.  Whichever statement may carry the  more weight, it is a fact, however, that  F. A. Ross, general manager, and J. P.  Jones, have just 1 eturned from New  York where they were conferring with  their principal.  Boundary Mining Notes  ; A small crew of men have been put  to work at the Oro Denoro mine.  ; Granby ore shipments and smelter  treatment show the expected drop in  tonnage this week.  Caraey Copper Stock  J. L. .'Martin has the following  reasons to offer for Carney Copper  stock being one of the most attractive  buys of all Coeur d'Alene stocks:  The company owns eight full  and  three fractional mineral claims in the  Steven's  Peak, silver:lead-copper_ district, witfi: the best out"crop of minerals  in the district.   There is  at  least 20  tons of ore sacked at the surface workings.    Tunnel No. 1 is in  about  220  feet with a depth  of 85  feet, where  copper glance and peacock copper ore  was encountered.    Tunnel No. 2 is in  770 feet, with crosscuts running north  and south   85 and   125   respectively,  and which have intersected both ledges  at a depth of 125 feet, the south ledge  carrying copper and the north one lead  and silver sprinkled through  the rock  Drifting 65 feet on the lead-silver ledge  shows the filling to be heavily mineralized with iron, silver, lead and copper.  It is the opinion of experts that we are  very near ore chutes  in   both   ledges  Mr  Phinney, the Coeur   d'Alene  ex  pert, says we will get  ore  within   150  feet more drifting.    The company own  a  valuable   water- right  and   timber  sufficient for  a  big   mine.    The Carbonate Hill company owning a  group  of claims joining the Carney group on  the west has recently developed 9 feet  of good concentrating   lead-silver ore,  on the Carney ledge.    The   Reindeer  company owning a  group  of claims  joining the Carney group on the south,  will reach its ore body with  its  3,000  foot tunnel, at a depth  of about 700  feet, in go days.  ' G. Whitwell and P. Pinker have just  completed another fifty feet of tunneling on the Lucky Shot property.  Frederic Keffer, consulting engineer  for the B. C. Copper company, has  been on a trip to the-coal basins at  Princeton and Nicola,"with a view it is  said of looking to the company's future  source of supply.  Surveyors have been busy during the  past few days surveying for the big  tunnel, and have now reached the  Crescent mine. A blacksmith shop  and other necessary buildings are being  arranged for at the mouth of the bore.  ) A syndicate which is developing the  Grayhound fraction in Dead wood camp  is reported to have made a good strike.  In sinking a shaft a ledge of from one  to twojeet in width was uncovered,  carrying values of from one to" three  ounces gold and r 5 ounces silver.  i Since January only two furnaces  have'been in operation at the'-B.C.  Copper company's smelter. A director  of the company is quoted as stating  that one-third of the value, of output  from the company's mines is gold; giving a steady income independent of  popper.    ,  j Another tunnel was started chis week  bh the Athelstan"Fraction,   the  B.C. I  Copper company's Wellington camp  property. The original- development  was the sinking of a shaft and drifting.  A tunnel was then run to explore the  property at depth; and now a second,  tunnel further down the hill has .been  started.  I The strike situation in the eastern  British Columbiacoal mines has not  improved any. during the past week,  and matters become more serious daily  for the British Columbia Copper com  pany's smelter, as there is now not  more than a ten days' reserve supply of  coke on hand.' At least one furnace  and probably two will require to be let  but of commission before a supply of  fuel is coming regularly again. The  treatment at the smelter this week  shows a drop of a thousand tons from  last week! ; ' ���, :.. .;.;. A !.-'::-b.'.'X'.-*- V:--  R.  COMPARISON OF THE  GRANBY GLORY HOLE  Was Original Steam Shovel  Proposition  The Granby is said to be the original  steam shovel mining proposition, biit  the days of the steam shovel on the  Granby is now history, tHeore now all  coming through tunnelsi. The Boston  News Bureau, commenting on this  fact, refers to the Granby "glory hole:'1  as being twice the size of the Exchange  building. ; ." W ^  In the year roo8 the Granby; corn-"  pany treated 1,03 71544 tons of ore. Its  net earnings for this period amounted  to about $700,000, which would ;ind&  cate a profit of about 67 cents per tori  upon this immense tonnage of ore;On  a capitalization of 135,000 shares,  theseearningsamouctto$5.25pershare'.  .  In three years Granby has nearly  doubled the volume of ore treated,  as will be seen from the ore table elseV  where on this page. Granby ;6ri*s  average a recovery of 23 to 25: pounds  of copper to the_ton, but there are  precious metal value of about $r per'  ton, and without, these precious ..-metal  values the low grade Boundary disriici  ores could not be treated at a profit.  When the work of enlarging the  smelter, now going on, is completed,  the company expects to have a furnace  capacity which ..will permit the treatment of 4,500 tons of ore per day, or  at the rate of 1,650,000 tons per  annum. This is expected to give a  copper output of between 38,600,000  and 40,000,000 pounds.^ 1 jyzy. :���' \y\%  While the Granby company has to  BAD CHARACTERS  NOW UNDER ARREST  George Barton and J. Cassidy  Behind Bars  Chief Constable Bunbury arrived in  Greenwood Thursday evening, bringing from Nelsuti two prisoners, George  Barton and J. Alton (alias J. Cassidy),  who were arrested at Nelson on Mon  day on receipt of a wire from local  police stating they were on the Boundary train. The men were'located by  Chief Bunbury and Constable Dock-  steader, who had been notified by Spo  kane authorities to be on the lookout  for the pair. The two prisoners are  alleged to be concerned in recent extensive counterfeiting of coins at Spokane. Deputy Marshall Prey arrived  from Spokane yesterday to take charge  of the prisoners.  Barton and Alton are both well  known characters in the Boundary.  They have been under suspicion. by  local police of being connected with  the Midway murder and hold-up last  fall, but sufficient evidence could not  be secured. They were both in the  Boundary at the time, Alton going  under the name of Cassidy.

They  also visited the Sunset group  and the  Boundary Falls smelter,  and  were in  consultation here on Saturday with P.  F. Roosa, liquidator for the company.

C.H.R.'a NewTnriMt  A new turnout of Canadian Pacific  railway rolling stock is now running  into Phoenix. As promised by an  official of the company some weeks  ago, the Phoenix branch has been  given a new coach, baggage car and  engine to match. The train has also  been running on a much bettsr schedule this week and now arrives on  time, only sufficient ore dumps to  make tonnage being carried. This has  been a vast improvement in accommodation over this branch of railway and  the travelling public are already showing appreciation of the change.  A BAD TRIO COftALLED  Tie Three BrMwllle Hold Up Mtu'lMf !���'���  NcUaa Jail AwaMat/trial  William Newman, one of the trio"  implicated in the hold-up at Brides-  ville last December, was extradited  from Spokane orm^Thursday of last  week, where he had been held since  February, and taken to Greenwood.  He was given a preliminary hearing on  Monday, and being sent up for trial  at the next assizes, was taken to Nelson  jail, where his'biother, Gleve Newman,  and-Ben Hart, are also waiting trial  on the "same "charge. ."'���"' ���"  'The three desperadoes were arrested  through the instrumentality of Chief  .Bunbury    and    Constable     XV.    H.  Docksteader just across the border last  February.    Hart    consented    to    be  brought over for trial without the.formalities of extradition.   Cleve Newman  was taken to Spokane to await extradition proceedings, and Wm. Newman  was allowed to escape on a pretext of  wishing to chop some wood for soma  relations by the United States police  official   in  charge.    The  last  named  was later captured through  the detective ability of Constable Bunbury,   the  chief of the Boundary's newly formed  police division, near Portland, Oregon,  and    brought    to   Greenwood.    The  spring assizes,  at which the trio will  come up for trial, will open at Greenwood on Tuesday, May 25th.  Nursea for Phoeilx Hospital  Miss Hamlyn and Miss McLean,  professional nurses arrived this week to  take positions on the local hospital  staff. Miss Hamlyn was for some  time head nurse in Calgary general  hospital, and Miss McLean, recently  from Seattle, is a graduate of a Kingston, Ont., hospital.  &reSHSHSZ5rI5cl5B5rlSE5H5HSH5a5HSrl5r^  I BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

To break  this amount of ore two tons of .dynamite and a mile and a half of fuse are  used every twenty-four hours. Before  being shipped to the smelter the  ore is crushed by four gigantic ore  crushers, each capable of handling a  rock three feet in diameter. The first  shipments were made in 1900, and  since then about five million tons have  been handled. The present workings,  amounting to over twelve mile-*, extend  over an area of about one hundred acres  and the annua] crop is \alued at, ao  cording to the company's reports, from  four to five million dollars. Over three  and a half millions have been paid in  dividends.  The Pioneer received this week a  letter from B. W. Lincoln, New York,  re the Protective Committee's woik in  connection with the Dominion Copper  reorganization.

It may interest those hold  ing Dominion Copper securities to  know that, many that have signed the  reorganization agreement, deposited  their stock with and made first payments to "the Hungarian "American  Bank, and are now making application  for the return of their securities and  cash, feeling that they have" been caustd  to make their deposits under the inv  pression that they would be wiped ���put;  hut since this Protective Committer  his taken steps to. protect their interests, they have taken quite a different  view of the situation:  Very truly yours,  B.

Some    will   naturally   say  "But the plan is underwritten." In  regard to this, I would refer to the  exact phraseology of the underwriting  agreement on page 3, which stated that  the plan "will be underwritten." There  is a wide difference between having  done a thing and a promise to do a  thing.  Can anyone imagine a body of underwriters willing to furnish the balance  of $410,000, with 300,000 shares of  stock and $150,000 in bonds opposing  them in the courts, and in every proper  and legal way endeavoring to secure  their rights and ascertain the truth ?  If the investors in British Columbia  are not aware that there is a thoroughly  energetic body of indignant investois  guided and advised by eminent counsellors and barristers, working night  and day to ascertain the facts regarding  the Dominion Copper Company���then  it is time they were so informed, and  your paper has a message to deliver,  and I trust it will do so at once.  The principal upon which we are  acting is���that it is far more business  like and sensible to spend 5 cents a  share and thorougly investigate the  situation, than it is to put new money  take your "stomach trouble  right Vith you to the Pharmacist and  ask him to open a 50-cent case of  Pape's Diapepsin and let you eat one  22-grain'Triangule' and see if within  five minutes.there is left .any trace of  your stomach misery..

Rossland city council will compel all  parents of that city to send children,  between the ages of 7 and 14 years, to  school.   The Black Hand Society is again at  work at*Revelstoke, and recently two  prominent citizens have received threatening letters.  J. R Morrison of Nelson has invented a new type of water motor,  which it is claimed will be useful for  irrigation purposes.  G. G. Selous, the English author, and  brother of Mayor Selous of Nelson,  will hunt game with Ex-President  Roosevelt in Africa.  The work of grading on the V. V.  and E. is now so well advanced that  about 75 per cent of it' between Hedley and Princeton is completed.  The government has decided to immediately establish a supreme court  registry at Prince Rupert, and for the  present the registrar will be 'Herbert  Young.  Holcomb & Son have completed  their sawmill near Rossland. It has a  capacity of 50,000 feet in ten hours.  The company have about 6,000 acres  of excellent timber limits.  Collector of Specimens Broadbent,  of the Dominion department of mines,  reports an excellent prospect for secur  ing a repiesentatiye.coUection of British!  Columbia, minerals for the Seattle ex  position.  -Two-samples of -milk furnished the  people (Of. Kamloops were a few days  since found to be adulterated with  gelatine, according to the provincial  analyst, and the offending milk vendors  are to be prosecuted.  Fort Langely, where the licensed  bar.;has- been a feature of the town  since the fur-trading days of the Hudson's Bay company, has decided in  favor of temperance, and the town will  become dry after July 1st next.  A. S. Goodeve and J. W. Cockle  are endeavoring to have a trout  hatchery established at some point on  Kootenay lake. Edward E. Prince,  dominion commissioner of fisheries,  favors the.establishment and maintenance of such a hatchery.  The Eden bank Creamery Company,  of Chiliiwack, has distributed over  $57,000 profits from last year's operations. The company has made almost  a quarter of a million pounds of butter  in the year, the average selling price  being .2o%c.  The month of March, shows an excess of -$75,000 for building permits in  Vancouver, making a total of over $1,-  500,000 for the first quarter of the  year. This is an increase of 50 per  cent, over March last year and of 25  per cent, for the quarter.  Two thousand acres of land on Dog  Lake is tp be irrigated by J Ritchie,  of Summerland, by what is known as  the pressure pipe system. The pipes  convening the water will be three feet  under ground and will have a pressure  of 300 feet head. Rerervoirs will contain in addittion to that, for irrigation  purposes, water sufficient to meet all  domestic requirements and will be supplied through the same pipes,  Paul Putnam, a 15-year-old Ross-  land boy, is in the toils, charged with  stealing from Rossland post office  letter box. The opening in the drop  letter box was large enough for Putnam to put his aim through and operate when the office was quiet in the  evening.  One of the largest deals in Vancouver business property recorded in  some months was closed a few days  ago, when C. D. Rand, acting for G.  B. Harris, owner of the northwest  corner of Pender and Richards streets,  completed the transfer of litis property  to English capitalists at a price reported to be $106,000.  The R.M.S. Empress of India is to  carry a big excursion to the Alaska-  Yukon-Pacific exposition in June from  Vancouver and Victoria, if arrangements now being completed, are  brought to a satisfactory.conclusion.  The steamer will leave Vancouver  about a week after her arrival from  Hong Kong and ports of the far east,  about June 10th.

Jhe St. Eugene is, being tprospected  with a diamond drill.  Work will be resum.nl on the Eva  mine near Camborne this.spring.  Negotiations are. reported:under way  for the sale of the Alice.mine at, Ctes:  ton"  A rich mineral strike has been  made in thedistrict-between the .Coir  umbia and Seymour rivers.  Cheques to the amount of $43,006  were distributed among employes of  the St. Eugene mine last Saturday. <  A deal is on at present for the  Nelson group at Camborne, owned by  Cory Menhineck and Gus Sandham.  Final estimates and arrangements  have been made for the installation of  the $200,000 plant on the property..of  the.McGillivray Creek & Coke company at Coleman.  A strong English concern his secured control of the French mining  interests at Mansfield and will begin  to develop the big mineral deposit as  soon as possible.  The Molly Gibson mine at Burnt  Basin is closed down at present and  will probably not be operated until  bonded. The lead, which averages  from $12 to $16, is from 9 to 15 ft.  wide in the two tunnels.  A big shoot on the 900-feet level of  the War Eagle at Rossland is being  developed and is turning out well. A  isill floor is being put in, and the ore  so.far taken from this shoot is of an  excellent grade. There is evidentally  a large body of it.  At the Rossland IX.L. the lessees  have opened up a few small pockets of  ore containing free gold,in large;grains.  Work is being pushed in the hope of  striking one of the bonanza shoots encountered in the early days of the  ,mine.  Professor Zuber, who represents  parties interested in the Quinne mine,  at Ferguson, has been spending the  winter at Ferguson, in readiness to re  sume operations on the Quinne, as it  is expected.work will be resumed at an  early date on,this well known property.  Mr. Merrali, who is operating the  Winslow mine on the Silver Cup mountain, has bonded the Calumet and  Hecla property at Poplar, owned by  Capt. Fitzimmons, A. P. Garrett, J.  Simpson and J. Chisom. Mr: Merrali  will probably start development work  next month.  It is likely that steps ..will be taken  to develop the asbestos-deposits near  Kamloops. These deposits occur in  serpentine, >which is a favorable, occur ���  rencefor asbestos. The deposits are  so much weathered that it is impossible  to tell much about them without development work.  A company witht.the title of the Fife  Mines, limited, has been granted a  certificate ofjncorpqr^tiqn as a limited  company-.with a \capital of ^2,900,000.  The new undertaking has been formed  to acquire the Fife, Dykehead No. 2,  the Ben Hur and the Three Bells  mineral claims.'in thei'Grand Forks  mining.district, near Fife.  The Crow's Nest ;Pass Coal ;Co. of  Michel, British, Columbia.js.no.w operating its new plant for handling coal,  and finds the equipment faking care  of the output which formerly required  68 men about 1.6 hours. The new  plant does the work ;w.ith 17 men in  1 2 hours, the plant being reported as  the largest in Canada with a capacity  of 12 tons of coal per minute.  Another large gold brick was brought  to Nelson on Monday from the Nugget  ftold mine at Sheep creek. This brick  is the second largest yet produced from  this property and is of a value of  $6,500. . The brick was the result of  only 18 days run, making an average  output, apart from smelting ore, of  $350 per day. This is a record that  has seldom been beaten by a four  stamp mill in British Columbia.  Tho.,Story,of Kamlospj  Kamloops has decided to have a  centennial. August of 1910, the ,town  on the Canadian '���Pacific Railway will  be a hundred years old. Kamloops  was originally, called Fort Thompson.  Almost weird with romance is the story  of the. old fort settlement;; the days1  when one factor of the fort challenged  his brother-in-law, a wandering botanist,  to a duel; the days also of John Tod,  another factor who, ,was a .strategist ?to  deal with,the Shuswaps. The fort was  built with room enough inside the  stockade for thelargest horse brigades  with all their accoutrements. 'Pompous, warlike days of fur and red men;  but now the modern town is as new as  the newest, fashion and music arid  fairs, and all sort of fol-de-rols. In  brief, the history of this one hundred-  year old fort settlement, called Kam  loops, is; as follows: .  Old Fort Kamloops,. was discovered  in August, 1810, .by David Thompson,  astronomer of the Northwest Fur company, on his overland journey from  Montreal to Astoria, by way of the  Yellowhead Pass. The Northwest  company was one of the pioneer fur  trading institutions of this district, and  afterwards amalgamated with the-Hud'  son's Bay company. /Next upon the  ground after Thompson was Alexander  Ross, who, in 1812, conducted opera,  tions t.here .on behalf ...of Astor's Fur  Co. After the condition of the Northwest company and Hudson's Bay company, in 182r, the fur veteran, John  McLeod, was. in charge of the district  from 1822 to 1826.

I MRS.JAMES GOLLOHEf?  There is no better or .greater index  finger to the business interests of an  up to-date town than the advertise  ments of its merchants :in the local  weekly publication. '���"��� '  There is no truth in the rumor that  the government is contemplating lifting  the reserve now existing on any of the  unalienated timber limits in this province. A persistent rumor to this effect  has been in circulation for some days  past in circles which are frequently well  informed. In this case, however, a  mistake has been made. Mr. McBride  stated recently that the government  had no intention of changing way indicated, and that.the matter had not  been considered by the executive.  ^MME.LEO GABOURG  Systemic'Catarrh.  MrH.
