The   tcrnvnals   will   be  at  Midway   in   the    Boundary   district  and   at  Hope   in the lower   Eraser  valley.    The Eraser is to be bridged  at Hope, and connection  made with  the main  line  of tlieC. P. R.     Construction    is   in    progress   west of  Midway   near   the   summit   of   the  west fork   of  the   Kettle  river, and  west    of  Penticton    on   Okanagan  lake.     A    branch   line   has   already  been   built    from     Merritt    in    the  Nicola valley to  the   headwaters of  the Coldwater river.  ENORMOUS BLAST AT  MOTHER LODE MINE  2400 Fourteen Feet Holes Fired  ���130,000 Tons Displaced.  Remains Shipped to Montana  The remains of Steve Alimenti,  who met his death in the recent  mine accident, was shipped on Monday to Red Lodge, Montana. The  deceased's brother, ariived in Pho-  nix on Saturday from Montana and  accompanied the casket to Red  Lodge where the final interment  took place. A large number of  the friends' and acquaintances of  the dead miner were in attendance  at the depot.  During the storm at Anaconda,  last week, the lightning struck an  auto containing E. Bell and Peter  Teddy.  Another huge blast, the "second  that has taken place within a lew  months, was exploded about ten  o'clock on Monday morning, April  22, at the British Columbia Copper  company's Mother Lode mine,  Greenwood. In   all   there   'Were  about 2400 holes loaded and about  eight tons of explosives weic used.  The average depth of each drill  hole was about fourteen feet. An  approximate estimate of the amount  of muck displaced would be in the  neighborhood of 130,000 tons.  The enormous charge was fired  simultaneously, electricity of course  being the agent employed. Erom  a spectacular point '"of view there  was not much to reward the spectators and except for the huge pall of  smoke'which for a short time hung  over the scene, there .was little to  be seen, while the noise occasioned  by the blast was not at all what the  ordinary layman naturally expected.  Activity in Tularneen  What promises to become one of  the established mining camps of the  province, and which is likely to attract more than average .attention  this season, is that of Summit camp  in the Tularneen. The other day a  force of men commenced development work on the Indianapolis  group of claims, the properly of  United States capitalists, which has  one of the best galena1 showing's in  that district, besides carrying good  values in gold.v The properly is  immediately adjacent to the Belmont  fraction, which was staked about  three years ago by W. B. Marks  and Albert Bincr of Phoenix. The  lead runs diagonally across both the  properties.  NEW ORE STRIKE AT  HIDDEN GREEK MINE  Drifting on No. 385 Tunnel Reveals Three Per Cent Copper.  Movement For Mounted Police.  Referring to a report recently revived during the past few days in  the mainland press, that the British  Columbia government has under  consideration the advisability of organizing' a corps of mounted constabulary, Hon. William Bowser,  Attorney-General states that this  project is not at present obtaining  serious consideration.  Handsome Balance for Hospital  The committee who were in  charge of the arrangements for the  Easter Monday hospital ball, wish  to express their thanks to all those  who in any way contributed to the  success of the event. They also  submit the following statement, in  which it will-be seen at a glance  that the affair was more than usually successful from a financial  standpoint. In this connection it  might be added that the greatest  praise is also *lue 'the small committee, who not only were the  originators, but who spared no  effort to make the dance a social  and financinl success.  Receipts    $249.00  Expenditure.... 45.00  Balance "   $204.00  Metodist Church Social  The Methodist church social,  given by the Ladies aid on Wednesday last, was a social in every  sense of the word, and much resembled the affairs of that kind given  in Phoeni.x a few years ago. Good  humor and fellowship prevailed  throughout the evening, while the  program prepared by the committee,  particularly the concert, was a most  entertaining one. The church was  crowded, all creeds'of gentiles resident in Phoenix being present, and  al! intermingled and joined in the  gencral merriment. Geo. Caine  presided over the gathering, and  many of those present arc wondering, after hearing his specchse, how  Crews for the Yukon river steamers have recently arrived at Dawson.  Spring-  Styl  Quarterly  * Book  Recent development and exploratory work at the Granby company's  Hidden creek mine at Anyox, in the  northern portion of British Columbia, arc more than confirming the  optimism of the company's officials  on the ultimate success of the new  undertaking. During the past winter there was of necessity a cessation of outside operations on the  ore bodies, but a thorough and systematic program of drifting and  underground development was persistently followed, with the pleasing  result that after drifting for a distance of 700 feet on the 385'tunnel,  a  fine ore  body  was  encountered,  yielding higher assays than formerly.     "The   first   returns   from    the  new strike gave an assay of five per  cent  copper,"   said   O.   B.   Smith,  general supt.,   who has recently returned   from   a   visit   to   the mine,  "but   the   average   returns,"    continued Mr. Smith,   " were three per  cent copper."    Answering   a query  as to the  extent   of the ore bodies,  Mr.   Smith, who   is   rioted   for   the  conservatism    of   his    statements,  stated   that the   zones consisted of  two colossal ore bodies; the first, or  No. 1 as it is called, is estimated to  be 250  feet   wide, while   the   No 2  ore body was  even   larger still.     A  much* more effective boat system of  communication  with the mines has  now been establ  four   steamers  call  comprising    the    C.P.R.   steamers lSilas>   and   a  tenor,   so\o   by Thos  Prince  John,   Princess    Royal   and  the Union   company's boats  Camu-  A LIGHT  PALE BEER  it   is   that   George  has   been   overlooked   in  the   nominations   for the  last  elections;  but  then  everybody  knows how modest George is.    The  musical   program   was a   long one,  and    the    efforts,   both   vocal   and  recitative,    of   the   younger   folks,  were decidedly novel and pleasing.  " O'Hara's  Trombone,"   a   humorous   song   by   Miss   Laura Bellis, a  piano    selection      by    Miss    Annie  McKeown,   a   song by Miss Phyllis  Pope,   another   song    by   Miss   M.  Jarrett   and    a   recitation    by   Bob  Evans,  all   came   in   for vociferous  applause,   while the  number of encores    received  by   the  grown-ups  testified   the   appreciation    of  their  listeners.     Following is the rema  der of the program: Piano selection,  Mrs. C.   Knight; songs, Mrs. Wm.  Bellis;  duet,   Mr.   and   Mrs.   Chas.  Knight;    humorous    recitation    by-  Mrs.   I.   A.

Road Construction at Fife  Work on the   Fife wag-on   road is  my letter of February 24, 1  pointed   proceeding with despatch, operations  T. rfAWTHOKX,  Secy.  w,  J. Pbe.vderoast  WM.  out    that   after   the   Hidden   creek  smelter is built   and in   commission  the company will be able to produca  45,000,000 to 50,000,000 pounds of  copper  annually   and    earn  ^515   a  share on   a  15-cent   metal   market.  " At present Granby is producing  at the rate of 22,000,000 pounds of  copper annually, and   earnings must  be equivalent to $7 or $8 a share on  its stock.     During the  coming year  or  two,   however,   its  profits   probably will go to pay for the proposed  smelter at Midden creek.      No dividends are  likely to be paid immediately,   therefore.      1   think   Granby  stock will  again   sell  above $100 a  share."  The Fife Minos, Limited, are at  present running one shift, employing 10 men.  having being vigorously pursued for  the last two weeks under the supervision of Jos. Darragh. On the  completion of this undertaking,  which was badly needed, Mr. Darragh expects to receive word to  proceed with the commencement of  the new automobile road which is  to pass through Phoenix and connect with Grand Forks. It is confidentially expected that work on  the new roadway will be commenced about the end of May, or  perhaps sooner if the surveying  is completed.  I. O. O. F.

Receipts For Hospital Dance  The band concert, which was recently given for the purpose ot  raising funds for the purchase of  uniforms for the band, was fairly-  well attended, the receipts from the  sale of tickets showing a handsome  balance, which, while not sufficient  for the purpose, will form the  nucleus of a fund for the attainment  of the object in view. The selections  by the band, which were of unusal  merit, were deservedly applauded,  and gave ample proof that the organization is one well worthy of  much more substantial recognition  than they have hitherto received  from the town. The various other  items on the program were all well  received.

The younger man, who was w'ell  Creased in a light gray suit, lay In t  silence for a few moments. "I've got  It, BWI1 Seed!" Olmstead heard him  say, finail'ly, and the young lawyer  listened to the details of an odd plan.  When he finally slipped away there  was a look little short of elation In  his face. .  The next morning Mrs. Morrow was  Interrupted In her study of a "book  of valuable coins" t-ttat Heath Bannister had brought: her by a a'trange  caller named Addison Dockray, 0  young man, handsome, hland and with  la tongue sweeter than honey. He  explained that he was on agent of  Myner & Allen, the great music house,  He had heard, she was a collector  of violins. Perhaps she could put  aim on the track of 'the coveted Instrument.  Mrs. Morris could  the agent was gone,  the coins vanished and she day awake  half the night planning 'to make a  personal search for the violin. Early  next morning Heath Bannister stopped to call her attention to a paragraph  in the morning paper, stating that a  stone mason named William Seed, In  a town dn the next county, owned a  fine violin, for which he had refused  enormous sums.  Ait 9 o'clock a big framed elderly  lady, with a suppressed air of excitement, appeared at the depot. A tall  young man 'boarded the same train  for .Lombard the lady did. Before  noon that day the cashier of the  Whiting Bank received a telegram:  "Do not cash "Mr. C. Morrow'B  cheque to William Seed. Fraud. Explanations.  "SIDNEY OLMSTEAD."  In less than an hour from the receipt of the telegram Sidney Olmstead  stepped from an automobile In front  of the bank. About 2 o'clock a plain,  heavy-set man brought a cheque for  $3,000, signed by Mrs. Morrow. The  signature was genuine, but on a  charge of swindling be'ng brought  against 'tlie man by Sidney Olmsteiid  the cheque was laid aside and William Seed was remanded- to the town  jadtl.  That evening Mrs. Morrow, with  eyes swollen from excessive weeping,  burst into the parlor when Connie,  her eyes shining, sat on a sofa beside  a very bold and apparently happy  young man.  "It's gone!" she moaned, "the three  thousand I had In the bank is gone.  She reeled and would have fallen  'had not Sidney's arms caught her.  . "Oh, auntie," Tailed tho girl, "the  money's all safe. Tell her, Sid, tell  her."  Mrs. Morrow listened to the young  man's story of the overheard plat,  and his subsequent proceedings.  "Why .didn't you come to mo first  and , warn me?" Mrs. Morrow re-  ' preached him.  "Would you have listened or believed me?" he asked.  "I might not," she confessed, wiping  her eyes. "I���I hate to own It,, but  I'm an old fool, Sidney. I want somebody to look after me, Won't you  come and live with Connie and mo?"  "Of course," answered Sidney, with  a boyish hug, and a kiss that brought  a 'blusia to vtihe witlhered cheek.  That kisses in public are as unsuitable as pyjamas and carpet elip-  pera at a dance.       irge again,  nabbits. lie found an admirable mate  and lived nlthogether a gallant and  daring liege. It, was months later  when he was somehow, attracted to  the clearing again. Could the memory  of 'the chiild have drawn him?  It was lato in the afternoon when  : the Rairgea- aaa-d Ivhs-'mate���-gllded-sallent-'  ly aorbss the cleairlng.'. and by the  house and readied ! the. ahe>lterlng  bushes between/the house and barn,  Then, by one of- the strangest of  strange haippentatgs, 'they came upon  a scene which -checked them stiffly  in theiir iwacks! Toward i�� IttUq  thicket at the aide of the yard a child  ���, the child, a little older, of th��  Ranger's - memory ��� whs toddling  'happily, but that alone was not what  had brought the wolverene to bucU  sudden  halt.  Crouched in tho thicket was a great  Canada lynx, and its glaring eyes wero  upon the approaching little one. The  child came neairer; the lynx gathered,  Itself for the sipring, and theu ��� the  Ranger did not himself know why ���  the wolverene launched himself forward in leap after leap urid was upon  the savage beast ��� one heavier and &a  fierce as he.  There was a bloody grapple, the  lynx seeking the Ranger's 'throat, but  the collar and steep siplkes withstood  lit and the Ranger found his enemy's  throat in turn. Tthoro was a rending  of skin and flesh, a jugular vein was  torn open and the great lynx weakened suddenly and sank downward, with  the wolverene attempting to struggle  from  underneath.  Summoned hy the wild clamor of  snarls and growls the settlor and bia  wife came rushing from the house,  the man grasping his rifle. It was  unralsed In 'on Instant and levelled  upon the gasping wolverene, when the  woman, .who had seized the shrieking  baby in her airma, cried out in protesting wonderment:  "Don't shoot, John! It's our own  wolverene ��� and ho has saved the  baby!"  Suddenly revived, the Ranger leaped away, rejoining his alarmed mate,  who has fled to the nearest wood.  He could not understand nor explain  at all to himself tho cnuse of his late  action, but he knew that he'd had a  fight quite worthy of his kind. Then  fast and far he went with his com-  pani-cn.  Such is the story of the Ranger of  the Canadian valley. He hud ways of  his own. What better description  could he given of the wolverene than  that wliiich a great authority has applied : "The animal Is noted for ita  voracity, ferocity and sagacity." Could  any one .pay to a splendid race a  greater coimpliment than that!  A Xcw Uac for Old Flnnos  A Labrador tribe, It is said, made  the barrels stolen from a wrecked  whaler serve as chimney-tops; tho  West IiulianB utilised Timothy bex-  ter's warming pans for sugar ladles;  and the Shans find no worse use for  English beer-bottloa than to stick  them up as household gods to keep  away evil spirits. But says a writer  the drollest Instance of converted  usage occurred when that adventurous.  Frenchman, De Tounaut, while In  Patagonia, gave an old chief a worn  out grand piano which he had bought  for eighty francs. A few days after  making this generous present, Do  Tounaut went one morning to pay an  early visit to the Patagonian. 1-Ig  found him sleeping peacefully with his  wife inside the piano, from which he  had carefully removed sounding  board, strings, etc., and which, thus  transformed, constituted a not ua-  fortable bed.  1  ��� ���MWiH?fl-*��t**V*ytM��'**���' PIONEER,   PHOENIX,   KBSTI&H   COLUMBIA.  i  Honored by Women  When a woman speaks of her  silent secret suffering she  traits you.

A full line of Shirts, Underwear, Hats, etc., carried.  the   story   of   the    wreck   of   the  Titanic, says the Victoria Colonist,  and almost every person who read it  must have felt  at times  as if something had clutched the heart.    Four  days   had   passed   and   there    was  nothing   to   lighten   the  burden   of  sorrow.      Our    expectations   were  tuned   up   to   expect   a   climax   of  horror.    And then the story came,  and   we   read   of   deeds   of   quiet  heroism that made   our pulses beat  faster and brought tears of pride to  our eyes.     As there is no tale of the  sea more   awful in   its   toll of lives,  so there   is none   more  glorious as  an illustration   of the   manliness of  men   and   the   nobility of woman's  love.    The   wife who   stood  by her  husband preferring'  to die with him  than to   be  saved without   him, although there was everything else to  make   life   happy   to   her  except   a  husband's   love;   the  father   whose  only   thought   as  he  faced certain  death was of the   mother who   was  waiting for her litttle boys; the captain who stood upon the bridge and  issued his  commands knowing that  in a  few   minutes  he   would  have  gone to his   death ,in the water; the  of the Titanic,  musicians   who    played   their   own  death   song.in   order   that   courage  might, be   inspired in   the  hearts of  others; the sailors who stood by the  boats   in   which    they    could  have  sought   refuge,   but preferred their  duty to life itself.     We may lament  the death   of such   as these   and of  the   hundreds   of  others   of  whose  noble   courage   we   have   not   been  speed across the deep through fog  and darkness, nothing on land or  sea to make us afraid. Then out of  the night comes Nature, this time  wearing a mantle of ice. She spurns;  the greatest triumph of our skill  with only a~ touch of her foot, and  what was our pride, what seemed  the very culmination of wisdom and  skill, is broken and sinks from'  sight as a'pebble sinks when a child  throws it into a pond, and the icy  monster moves on without a tremor.  When daylight comes, where there  had been a mighty ship, seemingly  almost a living thing and carrying  hundreds of men and women full of  satisfaction that man had been able  to accomplish such a triumph over  nature, there is nothing but a few  fragments of wreckage and a stately berg shining like a vast pearl in  the rays of the rising sun. Nature  has taught man a lesson, an awful  lesson indeed, but in proportion to  our pride so must be our fall.  And yet, though there is much  sorrow, it is not all sorrow; though  there is much that is almost too  painful to bear, it is not all painful.  Nature may show us that she can  triumph over the works of man; but  she failed to show that she can  triumph over the souls of men. The  greatest thing in that awftil night  was not "the towering berg whose  feet were many fathoms deep; but  the unconquerable souls of the men,  who in the very hour and article of  death could do their duty unflinchingly. Human skill was powerless;  but humanity itself was triumphant.  And so while we mourn the lost,  let us not forget that the men and  women, who proved their nobility of  soul, were no better than we ourselves are, and that we and every-;  one else have within ourselves that  which is greater than fear, that  when the time conies for us to exhibit the greatness of-humanity, we  too may. be able' to prove ourselves  worthy to be classed with the heroes  "ff  ���(A  �����'������;  %**k  No  Other  Offers This  Hosiery  t+4  'Foot-clothing that fits with absolute perfection, for  treasons .you will readily see if you'll glance at the  J ^picture here . . . the only hose made that is permanently shaped to the foot and leg, and that is both  S#eam 1 ess  and Snug-Fi11in g  f'You'would not think of buying hosewith a seam up the front  ���"of  the  leg... . . wouldn't that be*ugly and uncomfortable?

Just think!  A.s soon as u single thin layer of Zam-  Buk is applied to a wound or a sore  such injurv is insured against blood  poison! Not one species of microbe  has been found that Zam-Buk does not  kill!  Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk is  applied to a sore, or a cut, or to skin  disease, it stops the smarting. That- is  whv fhikhvn are such friends of Zam-  Buk. They care nothing for the science  of the thing. All they know is that  Zam-Buk slops their pain. Mothers  should never lorget this. _  Again. As soon as Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or to a diseased part,  the cells beneath the skin's surface are  so stimulated that new healthy tissue  is qiiicklv formed. This forming ot  fresh healthy tissue from below is Zani-  Buk's secret of healing. The tissue  thus formed is worked up to the surface and literally casts off the diseased  tissue above it. This is why Zam-Buk  cures are permanent.  Only the other day Air. Marsh, of 101  Delorimier Ave., Montreal, called upon  the Zam-Buk Co., and told them that  for over twenty-rive years he had been  a 'martyr to eczema. His hands were  at one time so covered with sores that  he had to sleep in gloves. Four years  ago Zam-Buk was introduced to him,  and in a few mouths it cured him. today���over three years after his cure ot  a disease he had for twenty-five years  ���he is still cured, and has had no trace  of any return of the eczema!  All druggists sell Zam-Buk at oOc.  box, or we will send free trial box if  you send this advertisement and a lc.  stamp (to pay return postage). Address Zam-Buk Co., Toronto'.  during   the    fourteen    montlis'   expedition of 1908-9, the fitting out of  his ship at that time being the-  subject of  a scandal   and   a parliamentary investigation.      In that trouble  Captain Bernier was not personally  involved.     Lately,   however,  it  has  been   charged    that  in    connection  with some of his expeditions he h.as  traded with  the  natives  and others'  in the   north for  personal gain, and  at the  expense  of the government.  These charges  have been under in-  investigation by a commission under  the Inquiries Act.     Until  the report  of the  commission is  in, no definite  action will be taken, but in  view of  the evidence   already given, including     the     testimony     of    Captain  Bernier    himself,    the   government  has   concluded    that    the   circumstances warrant his suspension.

That 1912 will be the third greatest-year   in   British   Columbia's  sil-  vcr   production,   and also   the third  greatest in value  of output, is. predicted by W. Fleet  Robertson, provincial   mineralogist,   in   his   "Preliminary Review" for 1911, in 'which,  he estimates that the current twelve  months   should   prove   the greatest  silver  year   since    1901.       As    the  Kootenay accounted for 93 per cent  of the' province's   silver  output  for  1911, and conditions in the Kootenay point to  an increased production  of all metals,   Mr. Robertson's forecast seems well   founded.

The East Kootenay,- fully  on its  teet  again, is the  only   silver-lead   section   that  does  not show pronounced  indications of  an   increased   tonnage for the  current year.     In addition to all other  factors that favorably influence the  Kootenay  silver "situation, the  rise  in the  price .of all-the   metals will  naturally broaden mining operations  all over.      As   almost  all the silver  is   derived   from the   ores  that also  contain lead, the  lead output  must  inevitably show a similar expansion,  and 1912  will probably  make a record for lead for recent yearsi  James Marshall, Prop.
