New Corporation is to Have Capital Stock  .of $7,500,000. 7,  ���  IS  Fresh Fruit and  Vegetables...  A report telegraphed from the east  is to Ih'e affect that at a meeting of the  Dominion Copper Co., held last Wednesday, the proposition to consolidate  the Montreal and Boston.Copper, Co.  and the Dominion Copper Co.,' was  confirmed; the stock to be deposited  with the Knickerbocker Trsut Co., of  New Vork, pending the official com  pletion of the merger.' The statement  is also made that the deal includes ^he  Morrison, the Summit group, the  Boundary Falls smelter, the Emma,  Athelstan, Brooklyn and Stemwinder  group in this camp, the latter being by  far the most important and valuable  of the various* properties mentioned.  This is cofirrhatory of a report heard  by the Pioneer man in Spokane last  Monday, which was much to the same  effect. . ' i ' --' _.  It has been rJubHcvJchowledge for  some time that the Montreal and Bos  ton people have been working to con-  .,-t.i  summate this deal, but James Breen,  a large Dominion^'shareholder, is reported to have stated that it could only  be made on a cash basis. Whether  the Montreal and Boston people have  merely secured a contract to ship the  Br ooklyri dump of many thousands of  tons of ore,, with 'an option to take over  the entire holdings .of the Dominion  Copper,Co., is not*'yet known. The  capital.of-the new corporation is stated  to be $7,500,000./"  G. W. Rumberger, a shareholder in  the- Dominion' -^Copper company,  when asked yesterday for confirmation  of the report, as- above given, stated  that he had as yet bad no information  to that effect. If tlie report proves to  be correct, it will nitpi a greatly increased activity for this camp, as work  on the Brooklyn will doubtless be started in very short order, the ore being  needed at the Boundary Falls smelter  when it is blown w\  Arriving Twice o Week.  lettuce 30c per lb. ���    Celery 15c perhead..

City Clerk Matheson has just completed his assessment roll for the year  1904, and it was accepted by the city  council before the members all resigned and accepted their own resignations.  It shows that the'tqttl assessment for  this year is $308,305,, or $3,77=; less  ~ "than 'for'f^J.'The^ separate' figures  for land and improvements for the two  years are as follows:  -    . 1903 1904  Land $182,825   $185,805  Improvements...  130,255      122,500  ���&$$������$S>$��8$4��m*&$S$��$M$<!

Parker ofthe North Star mine,  at Kimberleyy East' Kootenay, has accepted the position asf superintendent  of a rich mining property on Prince of  Wales Island, Alaska. The property  is located near the town of Hadley, on  that Island, and is owned and operated  by the Brown Alaska Company. This is  The Helen,   near   Greenwood,  joining the shipping list.  Ore has been struck in the drift in  the 300 foot level of the Providence,  which is said to be very rich.  One furnace at the Mother Lode  smelter was allowed to go cold trjis  week a few days to admit of repairs.  In the month of March a total of  1,096 feet of development work was  done, in addition to shipping over 50,-  000 tons of ore from the Granby  mines. ,^  Extensive arrangements- are being  made by the Trail Smelter company  to materially increase the , output at  the lime quarry at Fife.  After stopping some of the furnaces  for a few days for repairs, etc., the  Granby smelter is once more running  the full battery of six furnaces.  On account of the spring break-up  no work is being done by the steam  shovels at the Granby mines, which  makes it necessary to ship more ore  through the No. 2 tunnel.  It is now confidently expected that  the Boundary Falls smelter will be  started at work again shortly, which  will allow an output for several Boundary mines not just now on the shipping list. ������_���;���: ���>������  A. J. McMillan, managing director  of the Snowshoe and LeRoi companies, who sailed from England about  the middle of April, according to advices received by the Pioneer, is expected in these parts shortly.  Orders are expected shortly for the  starting of work oh the Nellie Cotton  group in this camp, which was recently  taken over by th Chicago Phoenix  Mining Co., of which Hal J. Cole, of  Spokane, is the manager.  THREE MONTHS'  ORE RECORD  Makes Total of Over 220,000  Tons.

A compilation of Boundary ore shipments for the first three months of  1904 give a total of over 220,000 tons.  The March showing gives the two large  shippers, the Granby mines and tbe  Mother Lode, the largest so far this  year, while there is a falling off among  some of the smaller shipping properties.  The following tables show the tonnage of each mine for each month of  this year, together with the total of all  for the quarter:  Jan. Feb.

An  examination of the rolls shows that the  most valuable property in the city is  the four lots on which the Bank block  the company that Paul Johnson, Who stands, being assessed at $1 ,'200 each,  built'and operated for three 'years the!the."building itself being; placed at  Mother Lode smelter at Greenwood, $15,009.

Mr.  Johnson is now erecting a smelter for  the company, with a daily capacity of  500 tons, which will be blown in  about the first of August. The company employs at present about 150  men.  Mr. Parker will be remembered by  residents ofthe Boundary as the superintendent of the Dominion Copper  Co.'s group of mines in this camp,  when they were in active operation by-  James Breen some three years ago.  Under Mr. Parker's charge the mines  were brought to the stage where they  can maintain a steady output of ore,  having also been equipped with the  best of machinery, just before they  were closed on account of a disagreement between Mr. Breen and the  directors of the company.  is oh 'a. number of unimproved lots,  each, in the lower end of the city and  on a few fractional lots in the upper  end.  When a new council is elected, a  court of revision will be appointed, and  the rate of taxation will be struck. -For  1903 the rate was 19^ mills oh the  dollar, but it is^expected that it will be  somewhat less this year.  , -.  Workint tor Custom House.  William Delahay received  ;  letter  Smith Curtis at tbe Oro Denoro.  Smith Curtis, managing director of  the Denoro Mines Ltd., after an absence of several weeks, during which  time he visited the coast cities, spent  several days in the Boundary this week,  looking after the affairs of the mines  at Summit camp.  ,Mr. Curtis states that latterly not so  much ore has been shipped from the  Oro Denoro, for the reason that some  chages are'being made and additional  machinery has been installed, but that  J in; a short time it is expected to get  I matters   in shape so that   the   ore  SS-5S3E!  B5S5SB  from Duncan Ross, from Ottawa, this I-V"111���"   '" shaPe so that   the  week, stating that he. had personally shipments, which have been running  presented  the claims of Phoenix  for  the establishment of a sub-port of customs, and that he had succeeded in  inducing Hon. Mr. Patterson, minister  of customs, to send Chief Inspector  McMichaels here for the purpose of  inspecting and reporting upon the matter. The letter stated that Mr.McMich-  aels would be hgie jfl.a. fi��\�� d,ftys, and  from that he is evidently now en rotate  to Phoenix.  When Mr. McMichaels arrives, he  will doubtless be met by a delegation  of qui- business men, who will show  him the pressing need of a custom  house here. Mr. Ross sterns tc< think  that the matter of the appointment of  custom, officer h,er<g can be arranged,  Mr. Ross expects to return to the  Boundary in another week.  about 150 tons daily, will be nv  creased to 250 tons per diem. Just as  soon as the C. P. R^will, run a spur  below the tunnel level, a large additional tonnage can be-readily taken  out, and this will likely- be done some  time this ye^r, In the meantime the  twq kyrge ore quarries will be worked  as in the past for a year. The ore all  goes to the Granby Smelter,  F. W. McLellaP, the new superintendent of the Qro Denoro, has been  in charge since the first of the month.  Mr. McLellan was formerly with the  Velvet mine, Rossland, but came to  the Oro Denoro from the well kmown  Cornucopia mine, near Sumpter, Oregon,    Back yard assessment work is now  about due in Phoenix,  There are no.new developments in  the municipal squabble this week except that Attorney-General Wilson has  written to City Clerk Matheson asking  him to send the necessary declarations  re the resignation of the entire membership of the city council. After ten  days have passed, or by next Monday,  the declarations will be forwarded,  when the attorney-general will probably take steps to order a new election  It is doubtful, however, if six men  can be secured to serve trje city as  aldermen till this trouble is cleared up,  or until Chief of Police Flood and  Police Justice Williams resign. The  mayor states that Chief Flood is still  acting, and as Nightwatchman McDougall is also on shift for the city,  there are .plenty 0' so-called guardians  of the peace. Judge Williams stMl  holds the fort, contrary to the wishes  of a majority of the taxpayers ofthe  city, and the mayor stands with him.  The lieutenant-governor and Premier  McBride have been bombarded with  letters regarding the matter from several citizens, and it is now up to the  government to make the next move, as  it is unlikely that another election, under the present regime, will serve to  secure a city council. ���'  A new passenger tariff went into  effect on the Columbia & Western  branch of the C. P. R. last Wednesday. The most important change was  a slight reduction, amounting to a few  cents, on through tickets.  J. M. McCloskey, the blind miner,  will appear at Miners' Union hall on  the evenings of May 5 th and 6th. Mr.  McCloskey now has a company of  eight people, and it is said that he  gives a good entertainment. ��� His  brass band makes a street parade before the entertainment. It will be remembered that McCloskey lost both  eyes by an explosion at the Knob Hill  mine on June 6, 1902.  Next Sunday evening the anniversary of the founding of the Independent Order of Oddfellows will be celebrated in Phoenix by a special service  at St. John's Anglican church. Members of Snowshoe Lodge No. 46 are  requested to assemble at their hall at  7 p. m., and march to the church,  visiting brethern being ��� invited. Rev.  Wood will preach a sermon appropriate to the occasion.  R. It. Karstofiky WanU tUaufea of Seae  KM.  Under date of the 20th of February,  McLeod & Brown, solicitors of Greenwood, wrote to the city stating that,  on behalf of R. H. Karatofsky, they,  demanded $500 damages from the city  for closing up the alley in the rear cf  .lot. i iT block F,-owned by-Mr. Karatofsky.  This -was one of the. changes made  by the city when the agreement with  the V. V. & E. Railway, for allowing  that corporation to enter the heart of  the city with its tracks, was arranged  nearly a yeai ago. That agreement,  by the way, has not yet been signed  by the railway company. Mr. Kara-  tofsky's lot is immediately opposite the  public school on Knob Hill avenue. ���  City Clerk Matheson, by direction  of the council, wrote to Solicitor McNeill, of Rossland, who acted for the  railway company, and the latter replied that he would take it up with the  head officials of that company, when  the matter would doubtless be arranged. No reply, however, has yet come  through Mr. McNeill, from the railway  people.  Accordingly, McLeod & Brown  have become tired of waiting, and un  der date of April 19th have written to  City Clerk Matheson, stating that unless the matter was satisfactorily arrang.  ed by one week from that date, suit  against the city would be immediately  brought for damages. As the city is  in a glorious condition of being without a city council, and as no answer is  forthcoming from James J. Hill's subordinate railway line's officials, it looks  as though the city would shortly be defendant in an action at law.  Latest Prlcei lo Metal a.

The election in Grand Forks Tuesday of an alderman to represent the  Centre ward, to fill the vacency caused by the resignation of Alderman McLellan, resulted in the return of M. S.  Martin.

Of course, in Phoenix  we expect to see snow for' six months  but to see it snowing severely 3,000  feet lower,- and on the banks of Arrow  Lake*-' and the Columbia river���in  April, at that���well, Phoenicians  should remember that they do not  have any sort of a monoply. on bad  and unpleasant weather.  -   ���   ��� - ��� �������� .���  -As we stepped on board the fast,  safe, staunch and commodious steamer Mirito at Halcyon, Alderman ��� Mas-  shall, of Phoenix, stepped off, like ourselves to enjoy,the invigoration of the  health giving waters. While at Halcyon, Manager McNaught did everything for. our convenience, and we regretted to learn that if there was not  soon some increase of patronage, the  institution would likely be closed one  of these days. This would be a misfortune for Kootenaians in many ways,  and it is to be hoped that it can be  kept open  ��� " ���*��� .-'���  The milk of human kindness is certainly to be found almost everywhere,  and here is a case in point. On that  up trip of the steamer Minto, she ran  aground in_the narrows, and' it was two  hours before she was floated off. In  the meantime a tug pf the Yale Colum  bia Lumber Co. came along and gave  assistance. I.arge hawsers were fastened and the tug began work. John  LaCasse was a deck hand on the tug,  and as one of the hawsers straightened  out, his ankle caught in a kink, and  quicker than  a  wink   the   bone   was  some great corporation! As a rule, it  seems to be the custom to "jump" on  the C. P. R. in the press with both  feet. Doubtless that gigantic concern  has its sins to answer for and when it  seems due, the Observer will not hesitate to criticise the C. P. R,���-especially when it is unable to deliver a small  case of printing ink from Toronto to  the Pioneer in five months. But the  C. P. R. also has considerable to its  credit, to offset the debit side of the  account.. , ���'<;.���..      .. -,^r -  ���'��������.'.  It is a credit to the C. P. R. for the  manner in-which it conducts its steamboat service. It is certainly down-to-  date and leaves little to be desired.  Then, when one reaches the main  line, the business-like manner in which  it is operated throughouti, is favorably  noticed by the average passenger.  f . '' **��� .   <x;\  ', The Observer and his family, when  in Revelstoke^ found the west-bound  train, ten hours late���the train finally  arriving at the uncomfortable hour of 2  a. m. But there was rib loss of time  and the long line of coaches skinned  down to trie coast so rapidly that when  it reached rainy! Vancouver it was only  five hours behind schedule time.,  The Observer is not personally ac  quainted with George"T. Ham, Geo.  A. Bramble or any other of the C. P.  R.S able advertising staff at Montreal.  But whoever wrote the) word pictures  ���jrinted in the guide books regarding  the scenery along the line west ol  Revelstoke, did not put it a whit too  strong���and that dc-ic'ription is a delicious little bit of phrasing too.

Vancouver is a pleasant place, but  the Observer noticed,  as   do   many, I  ���M  Incidently, tbe Observer was advised in Spokane that the Montreal &  Boston people had actually finally  completed a deal for the Brooklyn  group, which is to include also the  McKcnzie & Mann interest in the  Emma mine in   Summit   camp.

Evidently the the old tradition that  when a man once gets a good smell  of printers' ink, he cannot keep clear  of the newspaper business' for any  length of time, is fully exemplified in  Vancouver.    But that's as it may be.  information  York City.  came   direct   from New  $880.  '    One good thing that Vancouver has  is a first-class electric railway system,  as also has Victoria, the two system!)  being   operated   by   one   company.  Stanley park, a beautifully breathing  spot, was of course visited, and as the  city grows it will be more and more  appreciated.    With the building ofthe  Grand Trunk Pacific, now practically  assured for the near future, Vancouver  will benefit to a large  extent,   during  the period of construction, at least, as  the supplies for work on the   western  end will go from Vancouver   to   Port  Simpson.   It does not take a prophet  nor the son of a prophet   to   predict  that Vancouver will become a   large  city in a few years time.   *  Victoria, the provincial capital with  its so,ooo people, has been justly  termed the beautiful. After the Observer and his family had been experiencing some six months of a severe  Boundaiy winter, the balmy skies,  the bright sunshine and green verdure  of Victoria were a much appreciated  relief. The change from two to three  feet of snow to summer weather and a  profusion of flowers, it-is needless to  say, was most welcome.  The trip over the Great 'Northern,  from Seattle to Spokane, showed the  great disadvantages a railway can .labor  under in the spring. At one point six  overland trains had been delayed by a  slide, though the Observer was delayed  but six hours. Others had a two or  three days' wait in the mountains till  tracks were cleared.  At Spokane the Observer was detained by the unprecedented floods  and freshets along the line of the Spokane Falls and Not them railway and  branches, completely blocking through  traffic for days on this line.  Spokane continues to grow larger  and better in every way.   Being now  a city of about 50,000 people, with  nearly 10,000 children in the public  schools, its importance can be  better  understood.   When tbe Observer first  saw it, Spokane had  18,000 people,  no paved streets and a single  mule  line for street cars.   Now the change  is marvelous, and must be seen to be  appreciated.   It is well worth a visit  by   any one who has never visited  Spokane.  No city in the province has so much  of the genuine English element as Victoria, and to do business there before  ten in the morning or after 330 in the  afternoon, with a couple, of hours off  ior lunch, is practically out _ of tlie  question. In Victoria, of course, one  can meet Boundary people at almost  any .time, and this was,no exception.  The beautiful government buildings  at this season'were deserted, practically, except by'department clerks. Probably the legislators were preparing for  the summer session when important  railway legislation is to be "considered.  In this connection it is interesting to  note that Jay P. Graves, general  manager of the Granby Co., who makes his  home in Spokane, is making a success  from the start 6f his new electric  line,  known as the Spokane Traction  Co.,  and which has one of the most powerful corporations in  Washington state  for a rival, a corporation ' which  has  been in the field for 16 years with  unlimited capital behind jt. , Mr. Graves  himself happened-to be in New York,  where he was having a conference with  James J. Hill.   Absolutely no information was obtainable regarding the  anticipated construction of the railway  by the Great Northern lo Phoenix.  And there is probably a good (reason  for it, for no one but Mr. Hill himsell  knows when it will  start,  and  he is  not .noted for giving advance  infor  mation.  Htr. Mr. fJreeo Tel.'i Abopl Tl<e. Bulldlof-  Toronto Friends Contribute.  Rev. T. Green, when interviewed b)  a Pioneer scribe regarding the Methodist church building prospects, stated  that he expected to be able to call for  tenders in a couple weeks.  It is thought that the plans will arrive in a few days, and then the work  will be rushed.  1     Many of Mr. Green's friends in To  ronto have contributed;   over   $300  already having been donaled, on condition that it goes toward  the first  church built by Mr. Green.    To make  this money available for the Phoenix  Methodist people, it will be necessary  to raise a balance of about $600.    If  eveiybody who is interested will give  a little, said Mr. Green, this will soon  be raised.    The prospects for securing  it art  bright.    With  this money in  hand, together with what will come  from outsiders the church   can    be  built with  a very small debt, which  can be secured from  the Church Aid  and Parsonage Fund at a low rate ol  interest.    Mr. Green said further that  the Methodist people are tired holding  sesvices^ in halls and stores when, by a  special effort, they can secure a small  church building which can be run at  less expense than it now costs for rent.  The advantages to be gained will be  that we will have a building for every  night in the week, and at the end bl  each year something" permanent for the  work and outlay involved.  The fourth quarterly meeting of- the  official board will be held in a few  days to wind up the business for the  conference year which ends with April,  and also transact business connected  the church building.  jjf    Hit        ��� A    9  ��Pr in ting:.,  "That's Our Business"  The Job Department of the Phoenix Pioneer  is fully equipped to turn out the Best Quality of  Stationery for auy kind of business.
