Edward Gawlor Prior, the honorable minister of mines in the cabinet  of Premier Dtiiismuir, and acting |>re-  iiiicr in the absence of that distinguished gentlemen to the coronation of King  Edward,   was a victor in Phoenix last  dignent miners. This subject was  brought to his attention by several of  ihose with whom he conversed- here,  and to make the lesson-more impressive lie happened to metjL.one or two of  the men who have been, made sightless  in the camp from accidents while mining  The colonel acknowledged that-some-  thing must be done in the malter, and  requested that the subject be laid be,  fore him in tangible form at an early  date, so that he could take it up. with  his colleagues at Victoria. '  Believes ia Party Lines.r  ' ' ' '  >  Asked as to his idea of party lines in  the next election, the colonel replied  that he believed injhat idea most  heartily, and he hoped' it would be  brought about. While himself a conservative, he would rather see a libera!  government in power'nt Victoria, than  one made up of all parties, and which  was thus responsible to no party.

Wednesday, being driven from Grand  buiks, and spending the greater part  oi" the day in the chief mining camp of  the lioundary.   Col. Prior is taking  trip thiough the mining sections of the  province, and familiarizing himself with  the conditions and needs of the industry.   He went into East Kootenay from  the main line of the C.  P.  R.-, and  travelled down from  Golden   through  the In. Steele and Cranbiook sections,  and thence to Nelson.     Last Saturday  night he was banquetted at Rossland,  and told with one accord how iniquitous is the two per cent tax on the mining industry of British Columbia.  He survived that concerted onslaught  by the mining men of Rossland, visited  Trail, and was shown the sights of the  city, namely, the smelter, and this week  came over into the Boundary. Stopping first at Grand Foi ks, he was pretty  regard to the time of the next election,  he   was   non-committal, saying  that  Joseph Martiir was credited with stat  ing that it would take place some time  this fall.  Col. Prior made a distinctly favorable impiession in Phoenix;, and if he  will take up the one subject on which  action is wanted, will earn 'the lasting  gratitude of not only Phoenicians, but  of the people of the mining districts  generally. \'\-     ��-  CHITTENDEN-ROniROCK MARKUQE.  Two Youbj People Start la LH�� Tajelaer In  Pnoeolx.        *'  '  Last Tuesday afternoon ot 2 o'clock  a wedding occurred at "the residence of  Mrs. L. Chittenden.on Knob Hill avenue, her daughter, Bessie, being united  in the holy bonds, of matrimony- to  Henry W. Rothrocfc.   Trie 'knot was  neatly addressed to  death,   no  less tiecl ty   Rev-  E-   p-  F|e*elling,  the  than five different petitions being presented to him by the enterprising citizens of the Smelter-City,,before he got  away. Evidently they do not believe  in losing anything by not asking for it  in Grand Forks. He was'also banquetted there.  From Phoenix he "went   to  Greenwood, and met several  committees of  the citizens, and after looking over the  Mother Ix)de smelter,  went down  to  Midway, and thence on to Camp Mc-  Kinney and Penticton on  Lake  Okanogan, and is now on his way  to  the  coast.    He expects also to visit  Cariboo and Atiin-this summer, if possible.  Surprised at the Qlor? Holes.  Col. Prior is a minin_��engineer, and  therefore is familiar with mining conditions and mines to a  large extent.  Nevertheless, when he  was taken  all  over and through   the  mammoth  ore  quarries or glory  holes of the- Knob  Hill mine by Superintendent Williams,  he could not help expressing his genuine surprise at the vastness of the  ore  bodies'on the properties of the Granby  Co., nor at the fact that the company  is now preparing for the installation of  the largest ore crusher and the  largest  air compressor  in  the  Dominion  of  Canada. '_-���'  While the colonel was  in'Phoenix  about a year ago, he only spent a short  time  here,  and  did  not have  much  chance to get a good idea of the mines.  He now knows, something about the  mines which pay the largest ore tax ol  any properties in the Boundary.  Was Shown Ibe City.  In company wjth Mayor Rumberger,  J. l<\ Hemenway and the Pioneer man,  the minister of mines was shown about  the city, and met a  large   number  ol  the business men and leading citizens.  Alter going through the Phoenix Gen-  eal Hospital, he pronounced it one of  the best institutions of the kind in the  province.    In the course of   his  visit  he met quite a number of old Victorians, and -chatted geneially  with   the  business men, expressing his confidence  in the great mines which lie at our very  doors.  He was much amused at the credit  that was given him by some of the  coast papers-for-'his alleged settling  of the Fernie strike. He was merely  present when the a'greeinQtjt between  the miners-and the Crow's Nest'-;. Pass  Coal Co. vyas signed.  Asked Bui One Thin..  In the course of his visit to Phoenix,  Col. Prior was asked to do but one  thing, and that was for the general  good of the mining industry, and not  for Phoenix in "particular. He was requested to use his good offices.with the  government for the establishment of a  beautiful service of the Church of Eng  land being used. The wedding was a  quiet affair, only the immediate fiiends  of the family being present.  Mr. Rothrock, was formerly a resi-1  dent of Phoenix, being* employed, by  the Phoenix Water Supply" Co., and  now being employed by the Pacific  Coast Pipe Co., of Spokane, where he  has a good position.

There is no duty on coke.  He intimated that within a year he  would funish. the Boundary smelters  with all the coke required at a cost nol  exceeding $5 a ton.  Mr. Hill is going to build to Greenwood and Phoenix. His road is going  to help to build up the Boundary country and he intends running branches to  every point where there is a chance to  develop the district and do business. ;  ; Mr. Hill is going to build through to  the coast. He hopes the people of  British Columbia will soon get through  voting bonuses as he does not want one.  He builds railways to do business, not  to earn bonuses..-��� Boundary Creek  Times;   ���..-  home for permanently disabled and in:  : Cbau.es in Nelson Papers.  - It has been given out that the Nel-  ���son Daily News will discontinue publication as a morning paper at the end  of this'week, the field evidently nol  being large enongh to support such an  excellent publication, even with labor  saving tyi>e setting machines.  John Houston is also out with a  circular stating that he will resume the  publication of the old Tribune ' next  week, and it is unde'rs,tqp.d.that it will  be a weekly for the present. Mr.  Houston still has many fiiends in the  commercial center of the Kootenays,  and it would not be surprising if he  was running the only daily in that city  before long.  Last Monday was monthly payday  at the Granby mines, and a large number of men were laid off temporarily,  owing to the lack of coke at the company's smelter at Grand Forks. The  payroll was not as large as that of the  previous month, as the smelter was  only in partial operation during the  previous month for lack of fuel.  But there are still a number of men  employed at the Granby mines, even  during the brief cessation of ore shipments and of operations at the reduction works. In addition to the carpenter gang of over 30 men, in charge  of Foreman Wright, there have been  eight machine drills at work this week  in the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  mines. Altogether there were 146  names on the rolls on Thursday. In  ���addition to this Porter Bros, have a  force still at work oh their stripping  contract. This week this fitm have  erected some more towers farther up  the hill,Jand are about to start stripping another large piece of ground, the  work on the present ground  most completed,  New Work Ooln_ On.  One of the largest pieces of construction undertaken by the Granby  Co. here for some time is the new  compreasor building, where the 60 drill  air compressing engine will be housed.  This building is located.off the ore  hody on the Victoria claim.the structure  being 60x121 feet over all, with walls  20 feet high. On account of the big  travelling crane required to handle the  heavy pieces of machinery, the ftame-  wotk of this building must be unusually strong. About half of the hewed  timbers needed have been framed.  Around the location of the new compressor building is indeed a busy spot.  -I'he masons are laying the foundations  on which the havy posts supporting  the building will rest, and next week  will begin; on : the immense concrete  foundations for the two halves of the  60 drill compressor itself. There are  about 600 yards in these foundations  alone, the excavations having been already made.  At the Knob Hill the compressor is  not running, the Old Ironsides compressor furnishing all the power required for the present. But work on  the building to house the big ore  crusher soon to be installed near the  Knob Hill ore bins, goes on apace  Notification of the shipment of the  crusher itself from the Jenckes Machine Co., of Granby, Quebec,-is expected daily.  What the Idle Men Are Doing.  . Quite a number of the men temporarily laid off are taking advantage of  the enforced vacation to go hunting,  fishing and camping, the North Fork  and West Fork of Kettle river being  the favorite resorts. Several parties  have Kone out in this way, while a few  are taking in the sights in Spokane.  One thing that has surprised \V. S.  Macy, of the Granby hotel, is the  number of men who have .kept their  rooms and left.their trunks, indicating  that they expect to return to work in  a short time.  hall. Son\e time since the Greenwood  nine succumbed to the superior playing of Phoenix, and a couple of weeks  ago the nine at Midway gracelully did  likewise. Captain Strutzel is to be  congtatulated on the success of his  men, who have thus far been victorious on the base ball field. A subscription list is now being circulated to  laiseasum sufficient to secure uniforms  and needed supplies for the Phoenix  nine, and is being generally subscribed  to.

Word has been received that next  Thursday evening at 8 o'clock, at the  nesDytenan church, Rev, J. G  Shearer, B. A., of Toronto, secretary  of the Lotd's Day Alliance of Canada,  will give an addtess. A special invitation is extended to laboring men to  be present, and before the addtess a  gathering at the same place will be  held of those specially interested in  the work of the alliance,  'I'he following strong words are from  Ralph Smith, M.P., the well known  labor leader of this province, in regard  to the work of the alliance :  "It is important for members of  labor unions to remember in the discussion of the obsetvance of the Sabbath as a day of rest, that to lelin-  (juish any opportunity of rest is ultimately to labor where we might rest,  and that for the same wage., Whilst  we may benefit for a short time by  the disposal of certain privileges for  what we think is an extension of enjoyment, to gain which we compel  leilow  wotkmen to labor,  in the end  being al-l lve ourse,ves mav '��e compelled to do  ' the same by the power of capital, and  ultimately to do so for the wage we  now receive for the shorter week. Any  ptiviiege to ourselves which compels  others to labor is conttary to trades  union ptiticiples."  In a Short Time Ibe Smeller Will Be Ready To  Blow In Again, If (be. Supply Continues  to Arrive. .,   _\  Boundary Mining-Notes.  Wm. Yolen Williams slatted Thursday foi a short trip up the West Fork  of Kettle river.  Additional ore bins will probably be  erected at the Snowshoe and the old  compressor wil! be moved close io the  new one.  The Granby smelter, with the ore  bins how deing erected, for Republic;  ores, will have a capacity of nearly 15,-;  000 tons.  Last Monday the t\vo furnaces of the  Granby smelter were blown out until  the supply of coke is sufficient to warrant the steady running of  the works.  For the present, till the smelters  havt more coke, the B. C. mine, in  Summit camp', has discontinued shipping ore." Some surface work is still  being done, however.  Tests of pre from the Contact mine  in the Burnt basin camp, near Gladstone, have shown platinum in commercial quantities. The property will  probably be equipped "with a concentrator and tramway at an early date.  ; W. C. Morris, ex-mahager of the  Hot Air line, has refused the offer of  $5,000 cash for a settlement of the  suits he now has against the company.  ''Max Hopkins, of Rossland, of the  Correspondence Schools, was in the  city Tuesday. He has 65 scholars in  this camp, and none of them have  gone.  WAX. McDonald, who has been  employed at the 'Granby -mines ?for  over three years, left on Monday's  train for the first visit to his old home  at Granby, Que.  ���ru. .11 u_._iuiug iiuesiiun in  the  Boundary at present is the coke supply  and when smelters will be able to blow  in again.   On this, of course, depends  to a large extent  thc liveliness of the  mining industry all  over   this section.  At present the Phoenix  mines are almost   the only ones working   in  the  lioundary,     Information  as to   what  the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. can do  in the coke line seems difficult to get,  and the smelter managements secure  little satisfaction   themselves.    They  always know it when   the coke is on  the way, as  diafts   find their way to  local  banks in  payment  therefor  in  short order.  However, it is certain that the collieries are being worked as fast as possible since the strike was settled, to  make up the usual Boundary quota of  about ,550 tons of coke daily, because  the Granby Co. has already secured  45 cars, or 900 tons, of the much  needed fuel for its smelter, and the  two other Boundary smelters are also  beginning to receive some coke. It  only remains for this to continue, and  all the reduction plants in the Boundary will be operating in full blast at  no distant date.  This week, A. C. Flumerfelt, and A  B. W. Hodges, of the Granby smelter,  went over to Fernie to look over the  situation for the company, and see,  if possible, how soon the condition  will become normal once moie. It is  also understood that the Granby Co.  has secured an option" on a valuable  coal proposition, and it would not be  surprising lo hear of that .company  owning its own coal fields and coking  ovens in the near future.  Summing it all up, no one knows  when the Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.,  will ship coke, nor how much, as they  seem to have a most peculiar way of  transacting their business in this regard. But the coke is beginning to  arrive in increasing quantities in the  Boundary, and there is every reason to  expect that this will continue, and that  the properties that have been closed  on account of coke shortage, will soon  be in active operation once more.  Alderman Bimie Sworn In.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council L. Y.

Throughout the  game was an interesting one, and at  one time it looked as though the Phoenix team woqld not get the best of it,  but in the last inning Charles A.

This is  remarkable, as we could not find any  snaps in mining stock advertised in  the same sheet.���New Denver Ledge.'  While it is now  settled  supplies   will   be   forthcoming   once  again from the Crow's Nest collieries  in a short time, the coal minets' strike  having been settled  and the digging  out of black diamonds in that section  recommenced, it would not be surprising to learn that the  sme'ters of this  section  were looking around to see  where they can  secure coke in   the  - future without being forced to buy of  one concern, that may be  tied   up at  any time, by accident, strike or otherwise.  Looking over the field that is immediately contiguous, it is noticed that  there are several sources from  which  these supplies can be drawn at no very  distant date.      In  the Crow's Nest  there are immense coal reserves  that  will surely be developed that are  not  controlled by  the present large corporation.   Just over the line' in  Alberta development of similar fields has |  already been started and is well under  way.    In Montana there are also large  roal reserves that can be used in  this  way before long.  But coming closer  home, we find  what are believed to be  valuable coal  measures up the North Fork of Kettle  river.    No work has yet  been  done,  but the clains will be prospected,  and  a railway will doubtless be built  into  that region.   This all   lakes time,  ol  course, but so does the building up of  a mining indusliy, and the time will  come when these' fields may be of the  greatest assistance in smelting the low  grade ores of thc lioundary.      In addition to this, there are the coal fields  of the Similkameen and  Okanogan,  which are in a similar condition,  but  of which promising reports have been  made.    These sections also will  be  ablo to'assist in the coke supply in the  future that is every day getting nearer.  Therefore, it may not be so very long  before the Boundary will  not  be dependent on the  Crow's  Nest  for its  coke supply.    'I hat time cannot arrive  too soon, is the thought of many Boundary mine owneis.  Did you ever see a  "knocker"  that  was of any use in a mining camp?    If  that coke [ so, you've seen what most peopli have  not.  Already the loss resulting from the  anthracite coa! strike is figured at  $60,000,000. Strikes" are expensive  luxuries.  It is a peculiar fact that in summer  Phoenix is the coolest spot in the  Boundary, and in winter it is the warmest.    Did you ever notice it ?  Labor Strikes.���A statistician in  the North American Review maintains  that 87 per cent of labor strikes to obtain recognition of unions fail. Fifty  per cent of strikes are successful, 13  per cent successful in-part, and 37 per  cent total failures.���Victoria Colonist.

Joseph Martin thinks theie will be  another election bofore the house sits  again. As the man from Manitoba  keeps pretty well posted in politics,  those with bees in their bonnets should  take due notice.       -    "  On the coast the coal mining industry is being pinched, owing to the  inci eased use of petroleum as fu<! in'  California. There's not much danger  of the interior being affected in this  way for some time to come.  It is not surprising that mining men,  capitalists, miners and laborers generally ail agree on one thing���and that  is that the present provincial government is responsible for many of the  present ills of the body politic. .  Throughout the length and breadtl  of the Dominion the  news comes of  the unexampled  prosperity that prevails���with possibly the one exception  of British Columbia.   When this is tbe  case, naturally the first question asked  is, "What is the  matter  with  British  Columbia?"     To   this query   there  have been a variety of answers, but it  is not surprising that several of them  agree on one cause, and that is that we  have   too  much   politics���too  much  politics of the wrong kind.   This was  the reply made by the president of the  C. P. R. on  his  recent  trip through  this province, and others from the east      It is a foregone conclusion that the  who have been recent visitors, cay Use i Dominion government   will disallow  same thing. several acts passed at the last session  As a matter of fact, this seei is to jof the British Columbia legislature, on  STRICTLY, BUSINESS  A good ad needs no label to > distinguish it.   -  Every good ad is a stepping stone  to success.  Never sit on the fence and wait foi  business to come���invite it with attractive aevertising.  Advertising is .productive of the  most good when it is judiciously and  persistently indulged in.  How to make more money is the  absorbing question; study your bust  ness and learn how to advertise��� that's  the answer.  One can never tell how far a good  deed or a good advertisement will  travel. Each one goes on working for  you long after it has been dropj>ed out  of your mind.  No business is too poor to afford  some form of good advertising. Advertising is as much a legitimate expense for a business as the salaries of  the clerks and office help are.

Tragedies of the Arctic.  "*"T N   extraordinary coincidence  ha*  II ��� . been developed by a recen t Arctl#;  Jx   trage(ly .brought about   by th#  expedition  of the Duko of th��  A.ruMl.  When this navigator went on his  Journey to the North Pole he took with  him among others Lieutenant Qn-rlni,  a Venetian gentleman of an old and  noble family: His work over, the Duko  returned, but the. lieutenant was not  with hlra, for. he had lost his Ilfi  through an accident in the Arctic regions.  Now, at' the very time when thl* accident occurred a professor In the technical school in Trieste, while rummaging in the archives of that city, discovered a manuscript bearing the data  1601, and containing- an account of a  Journey made by one Pletro Querlni, In  H31, to' the Arctic regions, Querlni Is  not a common name, and a little Investigation showed that Pletro Querlni  was a direct'ancestor of the other Pletro Querlni whq lost his life In the Arc-,  tic seas a-feW months ago.     ;  "���'���Querlni," gays the old man _scrlpt,i,  "sailed from Candia for Flanders on  board:a veissel. loaded with merchandise and precious stones. 'When he arrived In Flanders he sold his cargo and  started for the Arctic regions. A storm  forced him to abandon his ship and to  take refuge with his crew In two .arks.  The wind then carried them to the  coast qf Norway, but on, January 9,  1439, Querlni was again shipwrecked  near the Lofoden Islands In seventy  degrees north latitude, and almost all  his companions w-ere drowned."  For some time It was supposed that  he, too, had been drowned, but in January, 1433, he appeared in Venice with  ���^eii companions, the only survivors of  his original crew of seventy-eight men.  It seems that he succeeded in gaining  the shore after the others had been  drowned,- and then slowly made his  way home through Denmark and Germany. -  "Although those two Pletro Quer-  Inls," says a French writer, "are separated from each other by five centuries,  we find the same destiny at work In the  case of each." And he continues, with  a dash of playfulness: "Is It not possible that the adventurer of the fifteenth' ceivtury, desiring to enjoy once  more the* exciting days of his youth,  (ictually became incarnated as a hero  ���of the twentieth century?"   .',..��� !

Now th��  keeper of the store was a man of  much oaution and narrow mind.  "I  am as hungry as  my stomach  knows how to be," said  the millionaire affably.   "Bel) roe that veal pie."  As he spoke he laid, down the hundred-dollar bill.  The cautious ftorekeepe. picked It  up and looked at It with doubt mingled  With distrust and accompanied with  dubiety. Then he said: "My veal pie  is worth ten cents to me, but I never  ���heard of such a bill as that. Give me  one with another picture c/n. it, for thla  one Is not worth a veal pie, I am sure."  And the rflUJionalre said:  "My friend, It so happens that this  evening finds me with no other picture  bills upon my person nor yet any coin.  The bill Is surely worth a hundred ot  the ordinary, every-day kind- But that  Is neither here nor there."  But the storekeeper shook his head  sourly.  "Nothing will recompense me for the  veaj pie hut money that I can understand- There may be hundred-dollar  bills, but 1 never saw one before. I  know the worth OX my veal pie, and If  you have ten cents you can eat it, but  if you haven't you can't,"  "But I have not ten cents," said th��  millionaire; "so |et us put it on another t)asl_, Give rn.e 'he veal pie out of  Charity, for my stomach Is not used to  being put off."  "Now we're on familiar ground," said  the storekeener, as he sliced a piece of  cheese and ate It; "I have seen beggars many times, and as I never saw  one so well dressed as you are I doubt  you. You cannot be a beggar. Your  clothes betray you, and even If you  were one I would not help you as 1 do  not believe in encouraging mendicancy,"  "You aire difficult beyond a doubt,'  aald the .millionaire, raising his eyebrows and shaking his head. "I have  It. Let me work for the veal pie, I  am strong. Have you no boxes that  need unpacking, no (foods that need to  be shelved?"  SaJd the storekeeper, looking at the  clock: "I have never insulted the frame  that the Lord gave me by calling In  others to do that which I can do myself. My boxes are unpacked and my  goods are shelved. If you have tea-  cents you can take the veal pJe, but be  Quick, for it is the hour of closing."  Then the millionaire felt In his vest  pockets and found a counterfeit dim*  \vMeh he had received in change th��  day before. And rendered desperate by  his hunger he gave the storekeeper th��  dime and received, In, exchange the veal  pie. For to the n,ear-sighted storekeeper the coin looked good.
