Water-  low, vice chairman and attorney for  the Snowshoe Gold and Copper Mines,  Ltd., left last Monday for Nelson and  Rossland, thence intending to go down  to Victoria before pioceeding on the  return trip to his home in Kngland.  In an interview with ihe Pioneer  representative, just before leaving  Phoenix, Mr. Waterlow expressed considerable satisfaction wi h the turn of  events regarding the Snowshoe properly, but did not care lo say much  about the deal that had been made for,  the Snowshoe with the Consolidated  Mining and Smelting Co. of Canada.  Ltd., which is now beginning to operate this well known property once  more.  He stated, however, thai no salt: of  the property had yet been made, merely  a lease on the mine. The lease is to  run.for two years, or until 125,000 tons  of ore have been shipped, with a roy  alty on the output, at the end of which  period, if the leasing company   wishes  to purchase ihe mine, a price will be  agreed on, if possible. It is the full  intention of the leasing company to  work the mine to its fullest capacity  as soon as tbe preparations are complete, and smelling arrangements  made. A circular has just been issued  by the Snowshoe Company to the shareholders, announcing the lease to a  strong company on satisfactory   terms.  For the last six or eight years Mr.  Wa'eiiow has taken a great denl of interest in the Snowshoe, visiting the  property nearly every year while it was  being operated, and he is confident  lhat ultimately his strong faith in the  properly will be amply justified by the  finding of still larger and better bodies  of ore of a satisfactory grade.  Mr. Waterlow is not in active business life, but is a member of the board  of directors of Waterlow & Sons, Ltd.,  one of the largest manufacturing printing establishments in the world, and  employing from 7,000 to 10,000 people  in the various branches and departments.  AN AUTHORITY  ON PUBLICITY  Tells of Promotion Work in  ne.  Spokar  Results Far Exceed All  ticipations.  An-  service.     The   organization   ol   local  boards ol trade is encouraged in every  possible way, and assistance given.   In  fact,   a  convention  of   these   bodies,  with 150 delegates, was held   in   Spo  kane, and the general   work   of publicity   and    promotion   for   the   Pacific  Northwest greatly  stimulated.  i     At first the committee  started  out  I to raise $20,000 for   this   purpose   in  i Spokane, but soon decided to make it  : $40,003, and did so.    Next year it is  ! the intention to raise $100,000 in the  ! same way for   the   same purpose, and  ! Mr. Dennis,  who   has   been   specially  i active in the   promotion work, has no  ��� doubt it will done.  Not only this, bu; a meeting of representatives of the Chambers of Commerce of Seattle, .Spokane, Walla  Walla.

Mr. Rent spent Monday  in Grand Forks and Phoenix, was in  Greenwood Tuesday and went to Ross  land Wednesday, being accompanied  on the trip by Geo. C.

Asketl as to whether the comp.un  contemplated am eUension, Mr. Rent  stated that it was possible that a line  would be constructed direct Irom the  Boundary to Kosslaiul. instead of de-  touring into the state of Washington,  via Bo.ssliL-rg ami Norlhport, as is  now the ea>e. Thi.-. requires using  anotbei company's lines across the international boundary line, giving that  company the lion's -.hare of tlie tolls,  and worse than all, entails delay in  re-  j pairs  when   the   lines   happen   to   be  1 down in time of storm.  Ml  son,  company.  It is more than four years since Mr.  Rent last visited this section, and in  that time his company has probably  spent some $25,000 in bettering the  service here including the entire ie-  tniilding of the lines in Phoenix, as  well as doing the same with the m -in  line from Cascade to Greenwood. At  present work is just being started on  rebuilding the system in Greenwood,  alter which the same thin..- will In-  done in Grand Forks, the two probably  costing another $25,000.  When these two exchanges   are   rc  Mr. Rent is now looking into the  sibtlity of tiuilding the new line,  h must cross two ranges of moun-  ,, wiih not only tbe initial heavy  nee in construction, but the expense of upkt'tpiiig in the winter  months over a route traveled by no  one but linemen on duty. The distance from Casc.ide to a Rossland connection is about jo miles as the line  would uo, and would cost several thousand dollars, Inn Hi" advautages are so  manifest that Mr. Rent will doubtless  strongly recommend it to bis board of  directors for their favorable consideration. If built, it *id reduce the cost  of telephonic communication between  the Boundary and the Kootenays ma  lerially.  JUMPED BOARD, BILL-OOT THIRTY DAYS  Example Made   i>f   Young   Fellow   Skipping  Out.  An epidemic of jumping boird bills,  which has been more or less prevalent  in Phoenix of late, is now likely to  take a favorable turn, owing to nn incident that has just happened, and one  young fellow has secured a full month  in which to consider the matter.  U. S. Clark was employed at the  Brooklyn mine here and hoarded with  Mrs. J. H. Graham at the Mint hotel.  Last Salturday he drew his time and  hustled to Greenwood and thence to  Midway, to take the train the next  morning for Spokane, and thence to  Pullman, Wash., where he has a  brother in business. Mrs. Graham became suspicious, however, on learning  that Clark was in Greenwood, and on  ascertaining that he had drawn his  wages at the mine, told Chief of Police  Flood of the case. Sunday morning the  chief took the Phoenix Great Northern  train to Grand Forks, knowing that ihe  Midway train over the same road must  come into Grand Forks.  When the Midway train pulled into  Grand Forks Clark jumped off, and  Seeing Flood on the platform he started to run, with the chief after him.  The chase led as far as the C. P. R.  station, or thereabouts, but the chief  overtook his man, and came back with  him to Phoenix that night. When arraigned before Police Magistrate Williams the next day, Clark was given a  lecture by the judge and sentenced on  a charge of vagrancy to spend the next  month in the Nelson jail to think the  matter over while at work for the  province. The light sentence was in  view of the tact that he paid the money  he had, some $57, on account of his  board bill.  SPENDS$400,000  IN NEW WORK  Bounte)^Mflg^N|tgl  No.    37.

This week one of the two diamond  drills that have been, in   operation   at  Expect  to   Resume   Smelting  This   Month.  This week the Pioneer man visited  the works of the British Columbia  Copper Co. at Greenwood, which are  rapidly assuming shape under the remodeling and enlarging process. Manager McAllister was found and gave  some information regarding the extensive changes that are being made, and  which we have referred to before.  Briefly, the smelter is being entirely  rebuilt, with new and improved blast  furnaces, made by the Power & Mining  Machinery Co., of Cudahy, Wis., and  when completed will have a capacity  of about 2,000 tons daily, or nearly  three times that of the former plant  which has been torn down. The company is expending about $400,000 in  this work, and in extra development at  its Mother Lode mine.  The new plant will be most modern  in every respect, the latest, in fact, in  smelting practice, and after the furn  aces once settle down to work, Mr.  McAllister does not expect to blow  them out for a year or two, at least, the  item of repairs being reduced to the  minimum. With the new furnaces  will be added new and much larger  blowers, extensive electrical equipment  of all kinds, new ore bins to hold 10,-  000 tons, new machine shop, new  water supply, new steel buildings, etc.  Some delay has been caused by non-  receipt ol" lumber, but this is being  overcome.  Asked as to when he expected It)  resume smelting, Mr, McAllister said  that some time this month he would  tie able to blow in one furnace, it being  already on the ground ami partly set  up. In September some time the en  tire plant should be in complete oper  ating order. I'he new lumaces are  the largest yet installed at any smelter  in Canada, and the plant will be one  of the best and most up to date and  complete in the   Dominion.  Flying Trip To iMinllkameen.  Murdock Mclntyre made a record  trip to Hedley in the Similkameen last  week, going with his best team of drivers in less than two days Irom Phoeuix, making 70 miles the first day out.

From the above it will be noticed  that the member from Yale-Cariboo  has been paying some attention to the  outrageous mail service between Phoenix and Greenwood, notwithstanding  what persons of opposite political convictions may think. But let us look  into the matters referred to a little, and  see what we find.  Mr. Ross says we are never satisfied, and points to some long-needed  conveniences which this town has secured from the Dominion government  as evidence that we should be happy  and keep quiet. We now have mail  over two railways, but Mr. Ross does  not say that we had to almost literally  fight for ten months after the second  railway was completed and in operation here, before the double service  was instituted. Nor does he say that  Greenwood, with but one railway, is  getting mail over two railways, when  Phoenix could not get it for ten  months with both railways running into town.  Under the  caption,   ''Never   Satis-1  fied," Duncan Ross, M. P., printed the  following  editorial   in the  columns of  his Greenwood Times last week:  Phoenix is  as   well   equipped   with  postal   facilities as any  other   town cf  its size  in  the Dominion of Canada.  Two years  ago   Phoenix   had a   daily  mail  service by the Canadian Pacific  railway; today Phoenix gets  an  additional daily mail by ihe  Great  Northern.     Two years   ago Phoenix had no  custom   house; today   Phoenix   has a  customs and   inland   revenue   officer.  Notwithstanding what has been   done!  for Phoenix in the face of an   adverse  vote, the Pioneer is continually finding  fault with the   Dominion  government  for  neglecting   Phoenix.      It   is  now  tearing its hair because   the Canadian  Pacific railway, for reasons best known  to its   officials, refuses to furnish a direct connection   with   the  train   from  Greenwood at Eholt,  a.nd consequently the Greenwood  mail does not reach  Phoenix the same day as it is posted.  How the   Dominion   government  can  be   held   responsible    for   the    acts  of    th��   Canadian     Pacific     railway  company the Plioenix   Pioneer  alone  knows.    There is a .board of  railway  commissioners to regulate such matters  and it   would   naturally  occur   to the  disinterested outsider  that if the Pioneer was as anxious for a remedy as it is  to have   a   grievance against   the Dominion government,   it might make its  kick in the proper quarter.     As a mat-1  Then the custom house. This was  something that was requested for years,  and Mr. Ross assisted in the fight. It  should have been granted long before  it was done, although the department  furnished figures to show that it was  not worth while. And yet, in the  monthly customs returns from the  Boundary, Phoenix stands second or  third, and sometimes first in the list of  nine offices in   this section.    The   fig-  We are not so hide bound as not  to give credit where it is due, and it is  our conviction that Mr. Ross has done  good woik for his constituency at Ottawa, although he has doubtless made  some mistakes, as any man would But  when Mr. Ross takes the attitude that  Phoenix has received all that it is entitled to, we at once take issue with  him, and believe that we will be back  ed up in this position by the people of  Phoenix, regardless of politics, as we  have been supported in the past in everything of the kind that we have  fought lor, and obtained. It is not a  question of "adverse vote," nor of politics in anyway, for that matter. The  question is merely, "Is Phoenix and  Greenwood entitled to this service?"  Emphatically, we say it is, and shall  stand by it, whether the railway commission makes the C. P. R. send that  mail up from Eholt as soon as it reaches that point daily, or sends it by  stage.  Lest some forget, we will recapitulate. Phoenix and Greenwood are  scarcely five miles apart, are connected  by the C. P. R., and yet mail between  the two towns, as well as including  Boundary Falls and Midway, requires  the better part of two days for transmission. If one stays up all night, or  posts mail the night before, the mail  may go by the Great Northern, via  Grand Forks, in an effort to overcome  the trouble; but that is only a makeshift and one of little account. Greenwood and Phoenix have about the  same population, from 1,500 to 2,000  each, and they are entitled to the best  to be had in mail service or anything  else, especially with an M. P. resident  in one of the towns.  The Pioneer and every resident of  Phoenix have had many moments in  which to reflect on the poor mail service between these two places, and even Mr. Ross has acknowledged that we  do not get it at present. Here is the  way the Ledge, published in Mr. Ross'  own city, looks at the matter:  Now that the member for Yale-Cariboo is home, and has leisure to look  into some of the needs of the district  which he represents, he might be induced to look into the mail service, or  rather want of mail service in the Boundary, Osoyoos and West Fork districts.  The distance between Greenwood and  Phoenix is nearly four miles. The  stage makes the down trip in 30 minutes and the up trip in one hour.  Mail coming from Phoenix to Green  wood takes two days, or 96 times as  long as is required to make the trip by  stage. Mail from Greenwood to Phoe  nix requires three days, that is, by  stage between the two points, one  hour; by mail 72 hours.    Mail to and  dustries brought the grand total 10 tlie  magnificent figure of fifty millions of  dollars.  Truly this is a heritage of which j  British Columbians may well fee  proud. And not only is this the case,  but every branch of industry is now  on a substantial, lasting basis, having j  gone through the boom period and  settled down to legitimate business in  every line of effort.  In giving out the foregoing figures,  the finance minister said that he had  lived in the province for'26 years, but  that he felt more optimistic today than  at any previous time over the fuiureof  this commonwealth. He predicted that  a million population teii years from  now would be no idle dream, but  probably an accomplished fact. The  progress of the past is a good criterion  for the future.  And in it all, the mineral industry  stands in the front rank, and is know  to stand as such all over the world.  Further, it is likely to maintain this  position, as, with all the progress, the  production of the metals is increasing  year by year with leaps and bounds,  and in no part of the province faster  than right here in the Boundary.    ..

To put   it  another   way, how  long  does any reader   of the  Pioneer think  ter of fact the controller c" the railway J that Mr. Ross would stand it if the  mail service has taken up the matter Greenwood C. P. R.mail was dumped  with a view to securing a more prompt  mail service between   Greenwood and  Phoenix.  If the Pioneer could have a few reflective moments, it could readily see  th.iL the Dominion government might  wenry of its well doing for Phoenix if  tho only -.^.wird it is going to secure  is continuous abuse. Phoenix is an  important mining center, but during  tho last two years   in the matter of ad-  off at Eholt daily and held there 24  hours before being forwarded, with the  railway directly connecting the two  ,points? Phoenix and Greenwood are  practically equidistant from Eholt,  where the delay is occasioned. He  would not stand for it long, one may  be sure, and the wires to Ottawa would  fairly sing with the   strenuosity  of the  production of the province for the year  ending June 30th last, and the total is  one that proves solid and substantial  growth in every industry in this province. During the last fiscal year upwards of $50,000,000 in value was  produced in British Columbia, the  greatest year, of course, in the history  of the Pacific province. This means  that wealth to the extent of $1,250 for  every white man in the province was  produced during the last year, a record  that few countries of the age of this  one can show.  Of course, the mining industry made  the banner showing with over $22,-  461,000, as previously announced.  Some of the other items were lumber,  $7��500>0��o; produce, $6,500,000; poultry, eggs and cheese, $2,000,000. The  fishing industry, of which we do not  hear so much at the inland points, also produced millions of dollars, while  horticulture,   nurseries   and other   in-  This story has been strengthened by  the appearance of a stranger, apparently a mining expert, who has been en i  gaged for several days in examining!  the California, Coxey, Giant, Gertrude*,'  Novelty and .Other properties in the  territory west of the Le Roi and the  Le Roi Two. It is alleged that a  movement is on foot looking to the  merging of the several properties on  the western end of the productive belt  on Red Mountain. If the merger becomes an accomplished fact, a company will be behind it with sufficient  capital to develop the properties as  they should be, on a large scale.���  Rossland Miner  9:00 a.m.  9:00  9:00 a.m.  Spokane.

Stephens,  Atrent  THE OBSERVATORY  Things Taikkd of at  HUMK AND  lU.SKWHKUK  With each year the Eastern Townships Bank, which has branches in the  Boundary in Grand Forks, Phoenix  and Midway, is growing in importance  xx.- a financial institution. As will be  noticed from an advertisement in the  Pioneer, this hank now has 55 offices  in Canada. "The latest to be established is at Coleman, Alberta, where  the office of the British American  Trust Co. is reported to have been absorbed. George E. Ewins-, formerly  on the staff of the bank in Phoenix  has been made manager of the new  Coleman office, and the many warm  friends that Mr. Ewing made while  a resident of Phoenix will be pleased  to note his advancement to the present  position.  HI  The first branch of the Eastern  Townships Bank outside of the province of Quebec was established at  Grand Forks: then followed one each  in Phoenix, Winnipeg and Vancouver.in  the order named, and the hank is now  beginning to pay some attention to Al  herta, where there are two branches  already. In every one of these  branches the business has increased  steadily each year, especially in Winnipeg and Vancouver. And while this  has been going on the business of the  bank in Montreal and other Quebec  points has also been growing. It is  thus one of the indications of the  prosperity of the Dominion.

Summer   Diarrhoea   in  Children  During the hot weather of the sum  mer months, the first unnatural looseness of a child's bowels should have  immediate attention, so as to check  the disease before it becomes serious.  All that is necessary is a few doses of  Chamberlain s Cholic,Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, followed by a dose of  castor oil to cleanse the system. Rev.  M. O. Stockland, Pastor of the first  M. E.

Pass. Agent,  Seattle, Wash.  M. M.STKPHiiNa, Agent, Phoenix, B.C  Duncan Ross, M. P., asserts ihat it  is up to the railway commission to give  a direct mail service over the C. P. R.  between Greenwood and Phoenix. Is  this to be considered au admission that  the postoffice department of the Do  minion government is practically run  by the C. P. R.? It would appear  to the uninitiated that the government  had done enough for the C. P. R. to  have the latter do almost anything in  tie way of accommodation in mail  service anywhere in the Dominion.  ���11  Last week comrade James H. Haw-  thomthwaite, the Socialist leader, who  is speaking in different parts of the province, stirred up quite a hornet's nest  in Greenwood. He was to speak two  nights, and'the first evening he had  the platform alone. That night he is  reported to have stated that the opposition were cowards and dare not. meet  him in debate. Duncan Ross happened to be presiding at a lecture by  a Presbyterian parson, and had not  yet learned to be in two places at once.  The second night, however, Duncan  was there with both feet, J. R. Brown,  M. P. P., also speaking. Mr. Ross'  own paper gives a long account of  how that gentleman roasted Mr. Haw-  thorthwaite to a rich and golden  brown, and asserted several times that  the Socialist leader practiced a diflent  kind of socialism in the legislature  from that he preached to the working  men of Greenwood.  When Mr. Hawthornthwaite replied,  judging from the meagre newspaper  reports, he paid Mr. Ross in kind, only  more so���verv much more so. The  Greenwood Ledge stated of Mr.  Brown that it was only fair to him to  state that as a platform blackguard he  proved a failure.  ���������  From all of which it would appear  lhat the comrade from Nanaimo was  quite successful! in stirring up the politicians of Greenwood, for a time at  least, and that Comrade Ross was  doing pretty good campaign work for  tee Conservatives, even though the  campaign is year or so off.  ���������  Says the Oshawa Vindicator : There  itre some people who know Nott, and  who know that they know Nott. There  are others who know N'ott, and who  know not that they know Nott. As between the men who know Nott and  know that they know N'ott, and those  who know Nott, it is safe to say  that those who know Nott and know  that they know Nott arc much happier  than those who know Nott, but know  not lhat they know Nott.  ���*��  The Yukon has been afflicted with  ptetty nearly every kind of schemer  under the land of the midnight sun,  attracted by the golden millions that  were supposed to be had in the icy  north country almost for the asking.  The latest was one Charles Hatfield,  who proposed to make rain in that  country, so that the hydraulic works  could be operated in the dry season.  He was to have received $10,000 for  his summer's work, had he been successful, but as a matter of fact did not  make enough to float a rowboat, and  ill   the   big   works   are closed.

Smith, Ihe well-known professor of dancing, formerly of Pern- ]  dala Academy, JPadUington, Sydney, after touring London aud Canada, has.;  now located in Carlton, A'lctoria, (Australia) ut-135 Cardigan street.  He-writes to tho Peruna  Drug Mf<r. Co., Columbus,-Ohio, (U.S.A.), regarding his use of Peruna, as follows:  "/ was troubled with catarrh of the stomach for a number of years,  which finally resulted seriously.  "It was when the disease was at Its worst and I could not sleep, eat nor <  work that I began using Peruna and found that It was doing me good!  every day. ,  "My stomach began to feel much better, my appetite Increased, and I <  did not feel so nauseated upon rising In the morning. '  "My bowels were soon in better condition, my sleep undisturbed, and \  tbe catarrh gone. ' (  "Peruna Is a perfectly wonderful medicine and I certainly recommend  It for catarrh."  Borne years ago it was thought that I The most reliable remedy for catarrh,  MUrrhwas confined to the head and I no mattor w|lero ]o(,,lU.d is Peruna an  nose.

Lowery's Claim has again been denied the use of the mails in Canadai  and the postoffice department has  failed to specify just what has been taken exception to in that much-read publication. It is said that when Mr. Lowery  received the notification from the autocrats at Ottawa, he said several things  that it would be difficult to handle,  even with a linotype machine, but that  the paper will appear as usual, and be  distributed in other ways than through  the mails. It will be another great  ad%'ertisement for the Claim, in any  event, and we do not think Duncan,  Ross is responsible for the trouble,  either.  ^^  Georgia    Minstrels.  When Richards & Pringle's Famous  Georgia Minstrels appear at the Phoenix opera house on Wednesday, August 15th, the public will see the most  expensive colored show ever organized.  If any doubt of the absolute truthfulness of this statement exists, it will be  forever dispelled when the performance  is given.  It must be confessed now that there  were doubts in the minds of the management about their being a.)le to  make the giving of so vast and expensive show with any profit, and as a  matter of fact the {business ordinarily  done by other shows would not have  been profitable, but it was immensely  profitable, and packed houses rule  everywhere.  The program is a lengthy one, and  made up of great variety. The street  parade is a novelty, two bands in daily  parade.  Patrick Henry (o Date.  To beef or not to beef���  That's the question !
