Aldermen Rogers, Hillier, McKen-  zte, Marshall and Dearie were present,  and in the absence of Mayor Rum  berger, Aid. Rogers was appointed  acting mayor on motion of Aldermen  McKenzie and Deane.  The striking of the municipal rate  for the present year was among the  most important matters dealt with, bylaw No. 63 covering the rate receiving  its first reading.  On motion of Aldermen Marshall  and McKeiuie a rebate of one-sixth  will be allowed on taxes paid on or before October 31, 1909, and that all  taxes become due on September 15,  ,0O9- .        ,���    ���  G D. Turner, representing Phoenix  public school trustees, petitioned the  council to build a new school, the Provincial government having offered to  donate $1500 towards the fund. On  motion of Aldermen Marshall and  Hillier the matter was laid over till  next meeting, and the clerk instructed  to advertise the present school building  and lots for sale.  The prevalence of the real estate  agent doing business in Phoenix without paying license came up for consideration, and the council were of the  opinion that they should contribute to  the city treasury. The city clerk was  instructed to be on the alert for the  land agent and secure the iegular  license fee from any doing business in  the city.  " C. H. Mullin asked for a tetund of  his trade license, having decided not to  engage in the sale of cigars and other  such luxuries.  The Bank of Montreal asked for  a payment on the city's indebtedness,  and the treasurer was instructed to forward $500 to alleviate matters.  "M. Mclntyre quoted a rate of $15  per thousand for rough lumber, and  was given the contract of supplying the  city's requirements in this line in  future.  VV.fG. McMynn wrote the council  in connection with the joint isolation  hospita'rtb^be erected by" Greenwood,  Phoenix and Grand Forks, assisted by  the Provincial government. It will  come up tor further consideration at  next meeting of the council, further  particulars to be secured in the meantime.  Mr.   Hunter  represented   the Van  couver World in  a request  for a  few  hundred dollars  to advertise  Phoenix  in that daily, but found little consider-  tion from the council.  The finance committee recommended payment of the following ac  counts: Dr. Dickson, $5; T. Mulcare,  $10.50; Phoenix Electric Light Co,  $108,305 H. Hartley, 80 cents; Morrin,  Thompson Co., $2.25; C. A. Ross,  $17.48; B.C. Telephone Co., $12;  Phoenix-Pioneer, $20; J.  Bnson, $8  Boundary Mining Notes  ��  Tbe LaMolt Show  The LaMott Comedy company gave  two good entertainments in the opera  house Thursday and Friday evenings  to large audiences. Although the number of the company is limited, the artists are clever and the show clean.  Mr. . LaMott, as an Irish humorist,  is a mirth-provoking performer, while  Mr. Zaneta is a contortionist of the  boneless variety. Mrs. LaMott is- a  capable musician. They show in the  opera house again tonight.  Plre at Grand F..rks  Fire destoyed three buildings in the  west end of Grand Forks last Saturday. The Columbia meat market, the  Queens hotel and the Haverty residence were wiped out in a short while.  The loss is estimated at from $9,000  to $10,000. The hotel and meat  market were insured for about one-  third of their value, while the Haverty  loss is complete.  Boomer-Olll  Miss Elizabeth   M.   Gill  and Lin-  wood L. Boomer were united in mar  riage at Rossland on Thursday, Aug.  5th, Miss Bessie Buchanan being  bridesmaid and George A. Hennessy  best man. The happy couple left on a  trip to the coast, and on their return  will reside at Greenwood. Mr. Boomer  is an engineer on the CP.R.  Cbarles Taylor's Remains Interred  Charles Taylor, who was fatally injured by falling from the trestle work  of the mine on Friday morning of last  week, died in the general hospital latt  that evening. The funeral took place  on Monday to the Presbyterian church,  where services were held, a large num-  oer attending, the Granby mines being  closed. The remains were interred in  the city cemetery.  Hors.s used by the Granby officials  at Grand Forks are 'being supplanted  by an auto. *>  Diamond drilling is being continued  at the Oro Denoro, but no ore is being  extracted as yet.     '- -  A stringer of highgrade ore was  struck in the Argo tunnel last wetk,  140 feet from the portal.  The ore shipments^ from Boundary  mines this week was^ the largest tonnage for a week sitMje May ist.  The Tip Top, in'the Skylark high-  grade belt, shipped some sample ore  to the B. C. Copper smelter this week.  Two fur.naces were blown in at the  B. C. Copper company's smelter on  Sunday, and up to^ Thursday 5,814  tons of ore had' been treated, 4,456  tons from the Mother Lode and 1,358  tons from other properties.  The foundation for the compressor  plant at the Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel  was laid this week and work has been  temporarily suspended unttl machine  drills are installed, when it is expected  about 15 feet per day will be driven.  The Canada Consolidated company  have taken a bond on the Black Jack  mineral claim in Central camp from  George Cook and D'uncan Buchanan.  The price is stated to be $20,000.  A dozen men have .been put to work  on the property, with E. Jackaon as  superintendent.  Development work continues at the  Bruce mine at Midway with encouraging results. Seven carloads of test  ore, amounting to 210' tons, were  shipped this week, part of which went  to the B.C. Copper company's smelter  and the balance to the Granby smelter.  A wagon road has recently been constructed from the mine to the C P.R.  station. ' ^ *  -- - '*  Replying to  a query  on   Granby,  the Boston Commercial financial  critic says : ��� We would not advise you  to sell your Granby. though- the two  stocks you'have mentioned would be  excellent selections were you to rein  vest the money. At its present price  we would rather buy'Granby than sell  it. We believe this .���stock will eventually sell at $200. tj*   .       __,,,  Word comes from the Nickel Pl-ite  that the'big deal, engineeredvby M K.  Rogers, for the purchase of that famous  property ''as gone through. The experts who have been sampling the  mine for the past three months completed their work last ueek, and the  first payment on the bond is due Aug.  15th. The bond is stated to be sev  eral millions. M. K. Rogers, who has  taken the bond, first brought the  Nickel Plate as a prospect to the at  tention of the late Atarcus Daly.  General Manager J. E. McAllister  and Consulting Engineer F. Keffer of  the B. C. Copper company made a  trip of inspection to the Jackpot property in Wellington camp, where the  company last week bought the adjoining Oxley property for $5,000. The  Jackpot continues promising in appear  ance, but there appears to be some  friction between the B. C. Copper and  the C. P. R. over the construction ��� f  the new spur, the latter company not  considering the prospects for ore tonnage sufficient. However, it is only a  matter of three miles of easily constructed railway, and when the allowance of red tape is used up there will  no doubt be the desired trackage to  the Jackpot.  John Oliver Speaks to Liberals  A large number of local Liberals  heard a rousing speech by John Oliver  in Miners' Union hall on Thursday  evening. He is a clear and impressive  speaker and'handled the adminstration  of the local government in a manner  that stamped him acquainted with his  subject. Railway subsidies, the timber  question in British Columbia, the land  department at Victoria and differences  between published accounts were  among the special matters touched on.  He had an appreciative audience who  received his remarks   with enthusiasm.  Pboenlx a Clean City  Editor Belton of the Grand Forks  Gazette, who visited Phoenix last week,  sums the observations of his trip up  in this week's issue as follows : "Phoenix is a clean little city. If you have  in old tin can or any rubbish that  would be unsightly all you have to do  is to let go of it."  Safe Blown Up at Fernie  The Great Northern station at Fer-  ���tie was broken into Wednesday   nigh-  by burglars, who blew up the safe am  secured   $235,   making   good    the r  % escape.  Carlson -Nelson  A quiet wedding took place in Phoenix on Thuisday when Louis Carlson  inn Miss Ellen Nelson were joined in  narriage by tne Rev. R. W. Hibbert.  A reception was held in the Scandinavian hall in the evening when the S.  H. & E.F. society presented them  vith a substantial purse of money, an  asy chair and couch.  C. H. REEVES CANED  AND BANQUETED  Prior to His Leaving for New  Westminster  ?  Banqueted, caned and carrying with  him the best wishes of his many acquaintances in Phoenix, C H Reeves  left yesterday afternoon fo> ' Silverton,  en route to New Westminster. .  On Wednesday evening he was the  guest of honor at an elaborate farewell  dinner given by Mr. and Mrs James  Marshall at the Hotel Brooklyn to a  score of his intimate friends, with J. E.  W. Thompson as toastmaster. Later  Mr. Reeves was presented with a  beautiful gold-headed cane, suitably  engraved, as a souvenir from his Phoenix associates. ���  After a residence in Phoenix for  eight years, as manager of the Wm.  Hunter company's 1 dry goods store,  Mr. Reeves goes .to the Royal City, to  assume a similar, position with . the  same company, which is opening a  large store there. Being a pioneer, he has  been identified with .'much of the business and social life.of the camp, and  will be much missed; there will also be  an enthusiastic skip missing when the  curling season arrives, and an ardent  trout fisherman will now join' the  salmon-bellies, where the clash of lacrosse sticks and din of cheers may  perchance be as echoes from the ore  crusher and dynamite stick in the big  copper camp. Here's prosperity to  Chris, and theAVm. Hunter company.

It is about~j$ ?years since Mr. Haas  made his first" trip to what is now Phoenix, on his--way through to Marcus  Only a'fewfshacks were then in exis  tence and James Marshall and George  Rumberger were among the notables  in the camp. Mr. Haas later' resided  in Greenwood for some years and afterwards spent a winter in Phoenix." He  is now superintending the development  work at the Bruce mine at Midway, in  which be is interested  Rifle Association Meeting  , A meeting of Phoenix Rifle association will be held in the city hall on  Wednesday, Aug. iS, at Jf .g.rru. JM.  Mclntyre' is at present" clearing the  ground for the range, which will be  ready in the course of a week. Rifles  and ammunition are now on the wa>  and will arrive in a few days.  Kicked by a Horse  While playing around a horse with  other boys on Wednesday evening,  Jimmie McDonald, the ten year-old son  of Archie McDonald, met with a painful accident, when he was kicked in the  face oy the animal. His jaw was  broken and cuts on his face required  several stitches, but we are pleased to  say he is now recovering favorably.  Vancouver, The Front Door of Canada  Things are moving with  rapidly in  creasing momentum all over our wonderful Province. The hope long held  is swiftly coming to fuition; the great  railway systems pushing westward  across the prairies and mountains south  of the international boundary line,  as well as those which in recent years  have been weaving their network of  steel all over our own illimitable wheat  lands are now converging to their common objective point, tidewater on Bur  rand Inlet.  Our resources soon, like good wine,  will need no bush.  Ignorance of our vast natural riches  has given place to intelligent understanding arid capital, that life blood of  the body commercial, will soon circulate away from sterile fields abroad to  our Canadian California.  What a transformation has a few  short years wrought in British Columbia, a transformation not equally apparent certainly in every district, but  we are all members of one body and in  the stream of prosperity now vivifying  our Pacific coast we must all undoubtedly share.  It seems but yesterday that a band  of enthusiastic lovers of our metropolis  paraded her broad streets singing:  "In nineteen ten  Vancouver then  Will have a hundred thousand men;  Move her:    Move her  Who ?    Vancouver."  That was just three years ago, and  the singers were then citizens of no  mean city, for Vancouver in 1906 had  a population of 46,000. Today the  fulfilment of that promise has been  more than met, and Vancouver, grow  ing faster now than ever, has considerably over the expected 100,000 people  dwelling within her beautiful precincts.  The past has indeed been surprising,  but who can dare to conceive what the  immediate future holds for British Columbia, when the Panama Canal is open  and the commercial navies of the  world press through our western gateway to load their cargoes of wheat for  the teaming markets of Europe and the  Orient.

The course will be from the  foot of the lake to a stake boat op  posite Texas point and thence on a  run home to the Lake hotel point, the  $150 a side and as the craft and the  contestants are well known locally  I there are many other side wagers. The  Christena Lake hotel has engaged an  orchestra for dances at its commodious  pavilion on Saturday evening and Sunday and special accommodation is being  arranged for visitors. Stages will run  as usual from Cascade.  This news item is written backwards1,  but you are asked to read it forwards  and not criticize the writer. The  crosscut is now in 20 feet, after following the ore chute with the drift 90  feet, and the last three feet is better  than any other part of the crosscut  This proves the ore for 26 feet in width,  as the drift is six feet wide, and neither  wall is yet exposed. We do not know  how long it will take to prove the  length, width, height, depth and value  of this wonderful ore body, but I  am going to keep your posted as development progresses, for I know that  you are interested.

NEWiPOMINION CO.'S  MANAGER ARRIVES  John Seward Assumes Task of  Making a Paying Concern  John Seward arrived',in Phoenix  from'New _"ork this week to assume  charge of the properties of the.

" Although-as*yet/he  has only made a superficial inspection,  Mr. Seward realizes that many radical  changes'must-be"made in the-system of  extracting the ore and smelting it in  order.lp make the Dominion a. paying  copper producer at the present price of  the metal. He intends to start from  the bottom and work towards"placing  the concern on a substantial foundation  and eliminate the guess work.'  Tbe FMe Mine  A remarkable showing'has just been  made at the property of the Fife  Mines, Ltd., at Fife. For a distance  of 25 feet across, at a point known as  the "Glory Hole," clean -gold-copper  ore>is shown up, with a body of copper  carbonates .lying midway, which has  yielded from $25 to $33 per ton.

There was just  one thing- that Mr. Roosevelt asked of  the American press before his depart  ure, and that was that he  be  allowed  as a private citizen to proceed with his  African plans without being .followed,  spied  upon, or reported.

''I Sentence you to receive this gift at  the hands of your friends of Kamloops i  or in default thirty days in   the  common goal." .'...���.,���.-:������  These were the words of the sentence  passed upon Hon. F. J. Fulton, KiC,  by piesiding magistrate, Mayor Robinson, at the conclusion of a brief but  interesting, trial at Kamloops in which  the local member was charged with  having secretly committed matrimony  so as to deprive his friends of the opportunity of properly celebrating.  Mr. Fulton was presented with a  cabinet of silver.  Although the Umitd Sutes is.-.universally recognized as trie birthplace  of many industries which in a coni-  paratively short time have expanded to  enormous proportions^ probably, but  few have made more giant strides in  the past half century than the industry  of copper production.; 'Frorri an insignificant total pf 1,456,000 pounds of  copper produced in .1850, to the stu  pendous amount of 866,107,200 pounds  in 1907, is the brilliant record of  American production of this useful  metal, and but for the period of( business depression which commenced in  the fall of 1907, it is reasonable to  suppose that the amount of copper  mined would have greatly exceeded  this figure.  Since the panic, however, the mines  have gone to work with renewed energy, and production has increased by  leaps and bounds, culminating in May  of this year in the establishment of the  largest single month's record in the  history of the industry���118,356,146  pounds. It is the opinion ofjetninenr,  authorities on matters pertaining, to  copper that at the present time there  js not a single mining district in the  world that is falling materially; be  hind  its' record output.

Of course, the  large  copper  users extensively for reefing and sheathing  have not been as prompt in returning passenger coaches^ those  up^to-date  to their normal consumption as the  mines have been in taking the metal  out with the natural result that since  the panic copper production has ex  ceeded the consumption. In fact, the  principal consuming interests have of  late been purchasing , only, sufficient metal to meet immediate requirements so that they are how confronted with low stocks, an ever-increasing demand for the metal, and a  rising market. The actual world-wide  surplus supply of copper, at this writing,  is estimated at 300,000,000 pounds.  When industrial progress is once more  in full swing, when electrical and telephone corporations push forward their  construction work, and the electrification of steam railroads becomes more  general,.as it how bids fair to do���in  short, when the; unprecederitedly large  business activity so freely predicted for  this county jn.Jthe very _; near future  materializes^ then will the demand for  copper eclipse any previous consumption, and the surplus ultimately disappear.  No doubt there are a gieat many  people who did not realize the impor-j  tant part which copper plays in the  metal world and the wide variety of  uses to which it may be put. The impression held by the average person is  that copper is mostly associated with  things electrical, occasionally being eiri- J  ployed in the manufacture of pots,  kettles or other culinary articles, and  while it is a fact that electricity, in its  various forms of energy, is the largest  single user of the metal, with every indication that requirements from this  source will continue to expand, it by  ��3   PER  YEAR-SAMPLE   ON   RKQTJJ'.ST  Published every Saturday at Los Angeles.

WRITE NOW to the editor and publisher,  luxuries, the automobile arid motor  boat, require respectable amounts in  their manufacture.. In building con-  struction, the uses for copper are many  and varied. Alloyed with other metals,  immense amounts are used annually in  making brass and bronze.  But, as remarked above, no single  industry consumes as much copper' as  the electrical trade. Electrical machinery, such as dynamos and motors, is; a  heavy consumer of copper and brass ;  in electric.lightinga great deal is used,  also in trolleys and, in the motors' of  the cars themselves; -in fact, the many  different uses which can be found for  this metal make a list too long for re  production in these^^ columns.  ;     THE BIGGEST PRODUCER . ;,  . It. addition .to \ being the World's  iarBest consumer,'the United States  to-day. contributes more than; one^half j  the world's production of~ epppejy a  large proportion of; which is. exported.  For the calender year iip to and including July 17, 289,913,715 poundsj  were exported, as'compared with 336,-  534,620 pounds for fhe_ corresponding  period of i gb^t, a decrease of 46,620,-  905 pounds. <5_rma��y is tbe principal purchaser, there- having been  shipped to that country during tbe five  months ending May 31, 1909,60,353  tons. Exports of copper from the port  of New York for the week ending July  17 totaled 9,974,077 pounds", ais compared with 20,512,309 pounds for the  previous week, and 12j'697,5 84 pounds  for the corresponairig week of 1908.' ^  Considerihg the fact that the mines  of the country ire producirigcire in un-  rwralleled quantities, that domektic and  foreign consumption is steadily increasing, and that the price of copper is relatively high and firm, and expected to  reach a still higher point in the near  future, it would seeiri that tire: present  is a most propitious season for the copper mining companies arid their stockholders, while the future should appear still more roseate.���U.S. Investor.
