" -Jr.  THE SALOON BYLAW  GETS A BLACK EYE  Stormy Session of City Council  Wednesday Evening  There was a stormy session of the  city council on Wednesday evening,  considerable cross-firing between saloon  license holders and members of the  council taking place, and the new  liquor-license by-law emerged with a  black eye when the smoke had cleared  away.    *  Mayor Rumberger and Aldermen  Marshall, McKenzie, Rogers, Hillier  and Deane were in their' customary  chairs around the table, and were  greeted with about the largest audience  of citizens that has appeared in the  council chamber for many a moon.  Jhe critical moment came when the  trades license bylaw amendment, Bylaw No. 63, 1909, came up for a  second reading. A number of the  saloon license holders present gave  their opinions and directed some heavy  blows at the passing of No. 63. Angelo  Schulli, of the Maple Leaf hotel, was  among the-prominent spokesmen and  debat.ed;.at;lmgth;.on -the possible fa-  nn'ne'among those'diVe^ctly'affected '"By  the bylaw.  A motion by Aid. Hillier and Aid.  Marshall, that Bylaw No. 63 be laid  on the table until next meeting was  put to a vote and was lost.  It was moved by Aid. Rogers, seconded by Aid. McKenzie that Bylaw  63 be laid on the table indefinitely, and  was carried.  M. H. Kane headed a petition  which was signed by 50 ratepayers and  citizens of Phoenix requesting that the  council bridge and grade Aetna avenue  between Church Street and First Street.  On motion of Aid. Hillier and McKenzie the petition was laid on the  table until an estimate of the cost is  secured.  A communication was read from  city of Greenwood stating that as they  already had a pesthouse of their own  they did not wish to incur unnecessary  expense in erecting one jointly with  Phoenix  Kootenay Telephone Lines, limited,  wrote the city to enquire local rates for  telephones, as the granting of a franchise in Cranbrook is now being considered. The rates now in vogue in  Cranbrook, the letter stated, were:  Business, $3 35, and residence $2.00  per month, with a ten per cent,  discount.  Dr. Dickson, medical health officer  for the city, handed in his report on  a test of the milk delivered by local  dairies. Some of the milk tested was  the height of perfection and showed an  unusually large per centage of butter  fat for this time of year. It is in  tended to test the local milk supply  regularly and future tests will be given  publication.  Mayor Rumberger brought forward  the necessity of moving the school-  house from its present location. On  motion of Aid. Rogers the city clerk  was instructed to arrange a. meeting of  the city council and the board of  school trustees for the purpose of discussing the matter.  It was moved by Aid. Marshall  seconded by Aid. Hillier that all delinquent taxes be placed in the hands  of the city solicitor for collection forthwith.  The following accounts were ordered  to be paid:  J. A. McMaster $67.90  N. Lemieux     25.60  Spokane N. Telephone Co.      1.28  Phoenix Pioneer     33-5��  C. A.

Rev. G. E.  Strachan will preach a special sermon  to Oddfellows. Members of Snow-  shoe lodge, and sojourning Oddfellows  in the city, are requested to meet at  the lodgeroom at 7 p.m.  '   Work has been discontinued  at the  Bell mine on the NorVh Fork. ���  Rev. Father Bedard has purchased  the Angrignon houses-Greenwood.  A large acreage oft; the old Coryell  and Murray ranch, Grand Forks, has  been planted to orchard this spring.  Dr. Tamblyn ol Midway, Dominion  veterinary surgeon, is i making an in  spection of horses in; the Boundary.  A. N. Borton and ,C. S. Handaside  of the Bell mine management, have returned from a business trip to  Seattle.  A fire started in the Norden hotel,  Greenwood, on Tuesday, but was extinguished without the assistance of the  brigade. . iV  The Herald, the -enterprising Cranbrook weekly, devoted a half page of  its last issue to the Greenwood-Phoenix  tunnel scheme. ������";  James Atwood aod-Spencer Banner-  man of Midway have bonded one of  their claims near-: Sturgeon lake, On-  ,.tarioJfor.:$39^.pp-^;^^������_,.:,,^ ..,.���  During the high wind one day last  week the building being erected for  Jeff Davis & Co. in Grand Forks was  rased to the ground.  The game of checkers is being revived in the Boundary. In a series  of games a team representing Boundary  Falls defeated Greenwood.  M. T. Adams, of the Britannia  mines, was in the Boundary during the  past week in connection with the inspection being made on the Dominion  properties.  The British Columbia Cupper company's smelter treated 8,295 tons ��f  ore during the past week, 7,708 tons  from Mother Lode mine; and 587 tons  from other properties.  E. H. Mortimer, one of Greenwood's  prominent business men for some  years, will shortly move to Prince  Rupert. Mr. and Mrs. Mortimer are  former tesidents of Phoenix.  The death of Norman McMillan  occurred at Mother Lode on Tuesday,  aged 67 years. The funeral toolc place  to Greenwood cemetary on Thursday.  Deceased leaves a widow and eleven  children.  Four brick business blocks are now  in course of construction in Grand  Forks���Wm. Bonthron's $10,000  block, Bower and Pribilsky's double  store, Davis block, and B.C. Telephone  company's exchange building.  The city of Greenwood is asking for  applications for the position of policeman which must be in the hands of the  city clerk by April 26. The salary  offered is $110 per month, and the  duties are to commence on May 1.  A despatch from Salt Lake City  says "a complete overhauling and remodeling of the Coctus mill has been  decided upon by General Manager T.  R. Drummond." Mr. Drummond was  formerly manager of the Dominion  Copper properties in the Boundary.  Work in connection with the big  Greenwood-Phoenix bore progresses  favorably. The scrub on the surface  at the portal of the tunnel has been  cleared by a fire, and the buildings and  compressor plant will be in position in  a few days.  Alex. Stewart of Eholt has recently  returned from a trip to Newcastle, N.B.  While there he visited his old friend  John McKane, who, he states, will visit  the Boundary in July. John McKane  is credited with having made a fortune  in Nevada mining.  L. E. Oliver, Fred Clyde and H. B.  Cannon of Grand Forks have gone to  Tasso Harbor, on Moresby island,  where they will engage a crew of twenty  men and develop the Contact group  of copper properties. The Contact  claims were recently bonded by a  Boundary syndicate, and a payment of  $10,000 has already been made on the  bond.  B.C. COPPER'S <  COKE SHORTAGE  Supply Will Last Till End of  ��� ���APriI- ���  ������:__..._-,.  As the strike of"trie coal 'miners in  eastern British Columbia continues  the supply of reserve coke of the British  Columbia Copper company diminishes  and prospects for an enforced close  down becomes more apparent. The  smelter which has been operating on  the reserve coke for some time will  consume the entire supply by the end  of the month, if not-before.  Discussing the matter the general  manager, J. E. McAllister, says the B.  C. Copper company has a contract with  the International Coal and Coke-com  pany of Coleman for the entire output  of the latter's coke ovens. The shutting down of operations at Coleman as  a result ofthe strike therefore deprived  his company of its regular supply of  coke, and as' soon as the amount on  hand at the beginning of the strike has  been consumed, which will be in a few  diey's,'the swelter at Greenwood will  have to close, throwing a large number  of men-out of employment, y The length  of time which the smelter" will' remain  closed, if it is forced to suspend oper-  tions, will depend upon the duration  ofthe coal strike for there is no possi  bihty of the B. C. Copper company  securing sufficient coke to meet its  requirements in any other place.  Concerning mining matters generally,  Mr. McAllister said that the steadying  of the price of copper was having a  good effect, while the price was not  advancing to any extent, it was not falling and that was something to be  thankful for after the experiences ofthe  past year or so.  Incidentally Mr. McAllister said that  he had heard excellent reports concerning the Nicola Valley Coal- company's property, which is now being  operated most successfully.  Jewel Mine  Cyanide Plant  William Clark of Ymir was in the  city this week. Mr. Clark is contractor for the erection of a cyanide plant  in connection with the mill being constructed at the Jewel mine to test a  slimes treating process. A shipment of  lumber has reached the property for  the construction of the vats, etc., but  when inspected by Mr. Clark was  found to be not the prope- Vmd of  material. Mr. Clark then vuited the  Cascade lumber yards and left special  order for the cutting and supplying  of the material. It will require a couple  of weeks before this material is ready,  and on its arrival at the mine Mr.  Clark will return to complete his contract. Mr. Clark was accompanied by  Mrs. Clark and were guests of Rev. S.  and Mrs. Lundie while in the city.  JOHN McINNES ON  LABOR COMMISSION  Labor Dispute to Be Settled at  Greenwood  The Department of Labor at Ottawa  has been advised that an agreement  has been reached between the British  Columbia Copper company and its  operatives to refer a matter in dispute  between them to the board of investigation under the Lemieux act. The  company has nominated EdwardCreyn,  barrister, of Toronto, as its representative, while the men have selected John  Mclnnes, of Phoenix, Socialist member  of the local legislature.  The commission will probably sit  in Greenwood eaily next week, Mr:  Creyn, who is now on his way from  Toronto, is expected to arrive in Green  wood today.  Strike on Lucile Dreyfus  A strike of a fine body of first-class  ore has been made during the past few  days on the Lucile Dreyfus mine, at  Danville, on the 300-foot level. A  contract has been let for hauling 500  tons of this ore to the S. & B.C. railway for shipment to the Granby. sniel  ter.  selling liquor without a license under  the municipal act. The prosecution  had a score, or more witnesses; suite  mdned, but only two were examined.  Their evidence was in effect that defendants had spld liquor in what appeared like a bar. The bar in question, one witness explained, was within  the rooms of what is known as the  Phoenix club and which has been  operating for some years. The defence  offered no rebuttal, out their legal representative, J. D. Spehce endeavored  to have the case dismissed on technicalities. The magistrate found the defendants guilty and on Thursday afternoon fixed the fine at $100. Notice  of appeal was given. J. P.. McLeod  prosecuted. ' '  rooo tons per day in the past, and. it  is expected that the shipments Yrc-ni  this outlet on resumption will be quite  as heavy as they were in the past.    ',  Aetna Aveaai Uradlat  In connection with the grading and  bridging of Aetna avenue from Church  to First street, M. H. Kane, who has  been promoting the scheme, claims  that the work would not cost more  than $1000, and offers to personally  donate all lumber required. This is a  substantial offer on the part of Mr,'  Kane, and there is no doubt that if the  avenue was opened to Fust street. it  would greatly enhance adjoining properties. . The grade would be comparatively easy, and Aetna avenue would  become a much-travelled thoroughfare.  Whether the city's financesX-w&xtvnl  such an undertaking at';' present^ how-*  ever, will require consideration.  Locating C.P.P. Land    -  The C.P.R. through F. W. Mc-  Laine of Greenwood, sent out four exploring parties this week to locate all  timber and agricultural land that the  company owns in the Boundary and  Okanagan districts. The exploring  will continue all through the summer.  The following are the men engaged to  do the work :  .Messrs. Tye,  Butler, Craig,  Mclntyre and Hazzard will do the Okanagan.  Messrs. Powers, McCuragh, Sanderson, Keve and Prout will explore  the West Fork of the Kettle river.  Messrs. Burwash, Locke, McCut-  cheon,   Myers  and   Cook  will  work  ; . 1'"'   Batrarfary-Mfncral Records  Last week four new mining locations  were registered at' GfaTfd'���Fbrks'gov-  ernment office, and seventeen certificates of work were filed.

Hemphill of Neillsville, Wis-  consin, president  of the syndicate of  Wisconsin men who are, operating the  Queen mine at Salmo, says  that great  improvements have been  made since  the mine was taken over from William  Waldie  last  May.    A  new  flume of  approximately   10,000  feet  in  length  and with a fall of 450 feet had been  built  and   the   mill   capacity   of   10  stamps had been doubled.   Since May  last the property has produced a little  over $100,000 in gold.  Work is at present being carried on  in the 500 foot level and the milling  ore from which the last two gold bricks  have been produced has averaged  $17.10 per ton. The lowest grade ore  which has been milled so far has averaged between $8 and $9 per  ton.    A  along Boundary creek. --d brick produced from a ten days'  Messrs.

The correct name for your trouble is  Pood Fermentation---���food souring; the  Digestive organs become weak ; there  is Jack of gastric juice; your food is  only balf digested, and you become affected with: loss-of-.appetite, pressure  and fullness after eating, vomiting,  nausea, heartburn, griping in bowels,  tenderness in the pit of stomach, bad  taste in mouth, constipation, pain in  limbs, sleeples-mess, belching of gas,  biliousness, sick headache, nervousness, dizziness and many other similar  symptoms.  If your appetite is fickle, and noth  ing tempts you, or you belch gas or if  you feel bloated after eating, or your  food lies like a lump of lead on your  stomach, you can. make up your mind  that at the bottom of all this there is  but one cause���fermentation of undigested food.  Prove to yourself, after your next  meal, that your stomach is as good as  any; that there is nothing really wrong.  Stop this fermentation and begin eating  what you want without fear of discom  fort or misery.  Almost instant relief is waiting for  you.

EXPOSITION  Canadian  Government and G. T P. Buildings  Being Erected  Seattle, Wash.,-April 19.���One of  the revelations of the past month in  the development of the Alaska Yukon  Pacific Exposition has been the sudden  appearance of two buildings, one of  them among the largest on the grounds,  near the music pavillion on the left  side of Rainier Vista, at the foot of  the Court of Honor. The two structures seemed to arise as if by magic,  and a few days after they were first  observed, the entire framework was in  place and scores of workmen were  busy with exterior and intenorfmishinp.  The workers on the exposition grounds,  who had supposed that all of the large  buildings were already constructed,  hastened to inquire about the new  buildings, and learned that they are  the Canadian Government building  and the Grand Trunk Pacific railway  building.  Canada has erected on the A.Y.P.  grounds a handsome building that will  contain as large an exhibit as some f  the main exhibit places, and there has  already arrived for the display a shipment of several carloads, containing  the exhibit of Canada at the Franco-  British exhibition at London last summer. This shipment will form the  nucleus of the Canadian display, but  the Canadian Commissioner has gathered from throughout the Dominion,  and especially from British Columbia,  a complete exhibit of the agricultural,  mineral, timber and fishery tesourccs  of the country.  Canada will make a strong feature  of the facilities for dairying purposes,  and will be a strong contender in the  live stock show, which will be held at  the exposition in September, and will  be tl>e largest live stork exhibition  ever gathered in the west. Canadian  breeders   of   high grade   stock    have  Agency In Peace River District  The government has decided to i  open a government agency in the  Peace River district. Hitherto there  has'been no agent-ot ihe provincial j  adminstration in that country but as  settlers are now beginning to go in it  is necessary to have a representative  there. There has been a large influx  of people lately into the Pouse Coupee !  country, but, so far, settlement has  been difficult. The steps now taken  will serve to assist the provincial jurisdiction m that section and aid in upholding law and order. The government agent selected for the post is  F.

ZAM-BUK  CURED  HER   BABY  Mothers will find the following statement of more than passing interest,  showing, as it does, how Zam-Buk ends  the skin-diseases of children, even  when ordinary remedies have completely 'ailed. Mrs. C W. Bowerbank,  of 1 26, Denison Avenue, Toronto, says:  "Not long ago my baby's face broke  out in an eruption. The spots would  crack and be very irritating and sore.  At other times they itched fearfully,  and caused the child to scratch and  rub, thus making the sores very in  flamed and painful. I tried all sorts  of ointments and salves, but they somehow did not seem able to remove the  trouble. Zam Buk proved very different  and a few applications gave the child  relief. The sores are now healed coni-  plrtely.  "Since that time my little daughter  has had occasion to use Zam-Buk for  skin trouble. She broke out in blothes  on her h-mcls and arms, and in her case  also Zam-Buk effected a cure.  "We now keep Zam-Buk handy as a  household balm, and do not intend to  be without it.
