The following appeared in last week's  Fernie Kree Press, as well as substantially the same thing in that paper's  Morrissey edition, the Dispatch:  "Mr. F. Kcffer-1 manager of the  Mother Lode mine, and well known in  Fernie as a member of tbeconciliation  committee, stayed over a day in Fernie  this week on his. way east as far as  Midieine Hat. He reports mining  operations in the Boundary country to  be flourishing. The fuel situation is  steadily improving, the smelters seldom  being entirely without coke, though the  supply often runs low. He felt assured  of the fact that the coal company's  new oven plants now under construction would permanently dispose of the  coke shortage question. He expressed  much satisfaction with the way the  management of the coal company was  treating the smelters of the Boundary  country. He believed the company  was doing its best to supply the demand and to distribute its product  equitably among the smelters, and he  deplored the unfair criticisms of some  of the papers in the'smelter country,  in which the. real facts were misrepresented."  Just about the time 'the Free Press  man was talking to Mr. Keffer, as  above stated, the smelter of which  Mr. Keffer. is manager, closed one  furnace, and last Sunday night came  near having to close the. other furnace  because of lack of coke.  Some two weeks ago the Sunset  smelter at Boundary Falls was forced to  blow out one of its two furnaces, solely  because coke did not arrive from the  Crow's Nest. The result of that was  the entire suspension of work at the  ���Sunset mine, and the reduction of  forces at other mines which shipped  to that smelter.  The Fernie Free Press man, if he  keeps on, will soon be known as the  Crow's Nest humorist, or the Mark  Twain of East Kootenay.

It is announced that September 14  has been set as the date of the nom;  inating convention of the Socialists of  Greenwood riding.  The Socialist local organizations in  Greenwood riding have reached a membership of 144, according to A. S.  Embree, of Greenwood.  It is understood that Monday, Aug  ust 17th, has been set as the date of  the Liberal convention in Grand Forks  riding, to take place at Grand Forks.  So far, nearly or quite 850 names  have been registered as voters in Grand  Forks riding, which number will be  somewhat increased before the lists are  closed next week Friday.  Wm. H. Bambury, of Phoenix, has  been appointed by the lieutenant-governor as a commissioner for taking  affidavits, under the Provincial Elections Act Amendment Act, 1902.  Next Thursday is the date of the  Conservative meeting in Grand Forks  riding, to prepare for the convention  to be held on the following Saturday.  Phoenix is entitled to four delegates,  Grand Forks to six, Columbia to three  and Cascade and Gladstone to one  each.  If arrangements . nowf being made  mature as expected, work at the Winnipeg mine, in Wellington camp, some  Iwo miles east of Phoenix, at Hartford  Junction, will be resumed in the near  future. 1       1      :.  Richard Plewman, president and  managing director of the company  owning the Winnipeg, was in city last  Monday, accompanied by Mrs. Plewman, and was looking into the different phases of the ubject. "Mr. Plewman was much phased at a treatment  rate which had jus been made to him  by the management of the Montreal &  Boston Copper CoJ's Sunset smelter at  Boundary Falls, indicating clearly that  ore from the Winnipeg was much desired at the smelters. Mr. Plewman  was satisfied that, within .a compari-  tively short time, active';: work at the  Winnipeg would again . be started.  When the financial arrangements are  completed, Mr. Plewman will probably  assume the active management of the  property, residing at the mine and directing the operations. '���.'  Since he was in Phoenix last, some  months ago, Mr Plewman has made a  trip to the old countrj*, going to London for the purpose of interesting capital in the Boundary country.  Since the Winnipeg, one of the first  mines iii the Boundarytp send out ore  after thejcbmpletfon,of ' the C. P. .R.  into this district, began shipping, not  quite 3,000 tons have been sent to the  smelters, as follows: 1900, 1,076 tons;  1901, 1,040 tons; 1902, up to May 30;  785 .tons. On the latter date, about  14 months ago, a fire occurred at the  Winnipeg which destroyed the shaft-  house and compressor building, containing the seven-drill air compressor,  boiler, pumps, etc., and entailing a loss  of something like $7,000. Although  there was some insurance, aside from  keeping the mine pumped out for a  short time, the property has not been  worked since that date.

Chairman Shea announced  that the committee on subscriptions  was still making progress and was adding to the amount already subscribed  in an encouraging manner. Reports  were reeeived from the several subcommittees, and it was decided to  use $250 in prizes for the hose reel  races. A committee of one each from  the nine committees was appointed to  arrange the amounts to be placed at  the disposal of each of the sub-committees for prizes and other expenses.

The road gang is now at  a point about twenty-two miles from  Grand Forks.  Grand Forks citizens will wait upon  the provincial government to secure a  bonus of $5,000 per mile for the purpose of extending the Kettle Valley  lines lip the North Fork of Kettle river.  John O. Madigan, ^government  boiler inspector, of Nelson, was in  camp Monday last, to look at. the new*  150 h. p. boiler recently installed by  the Snowshoe mine, which he was  satisfied with.   .  August Rieschl, formerly well known  in the Boundary, having been in business in Cascade, Grand. Forks and  Greenwdod, is reported as haying been  drowned in the* Copper river district  in Alaska early in July.  Arthur Marr, who for the last two  years has been one of the valued machinist's at the Granby mines, has accepted the position of master, mechanic  at the Mother Lode mine, Deadwood  camp, and moved over there this week.  Any new yearly subscriber to the  Pioneer, or old snbscriber paying up  arrears, can have the Montreal Weekly  Herald for a year free, by making the  request at the time of handing over  the coin to the Pioneer.

The Greenwood Electric Co. is now  using the cutoff supply line, which  was recently constructed from the upper town to a point on the old line below the city limits. If a good windstorm does not put it out of business,  many persons will be surprised.  Mamie Barrett, the eleven year old  daughter of Miles Barrett, foreman  at the Gianby smelter, received a  vicious bite from a rattlesnake while  picking berries a few days ago on Observation mountain. Medical treatment saved her life She is now progressing nicely.  This week the mammoth posters  advertising the Labor Day celebration  in Phoenix were turned out of the  Pioneer job department, and sent to  all parts of the Boundary country, on  both sides of the line. The advertising committee proposes to see th;.t  the event is thoroughly advertised.  Rev. J. F. Betts, of Grand Forks,  chairman of the West Kootenay district of-the British Columbia conference, will preach tomorrow in the local  Methodist church, morning and evening.

Cook; secretary, John  Rodgers; treasurer, H. N. Galer.  La.st evening the visiting officials  from outside also made a social visit to  the Masonic lodge in Greenwood.  Robert H. Anderson, formerly superintendent at the B. C. mine, now  occupies a similiar position at the  LeRoi mine at Rossland.  It is said that the Oro Denoro mine  is looking better all the time. About  a dozen men are employed there now,  and the force will be incieased before  long/, '..;. ,'.������'V"*'!  As shipments are being increased  again at the Snowshoe, the force of  men, which was temporarily reduced,  is again being augmented.  Another cleanup has been made at  the Waterloo, Camp McKinney, stamp  mill, being 343.9 ounces of gold, worth  $5,120. Within six week* the mine  has realized $8,000 from the null,  R. P. Williams, Boundary agent of  the Jenckcs Machine Co., has been  taking a trip through the Crow's Nest  country. The Rossland district has  been added to his'territory, with headquarters in the Boundary.  ���o It is now anticipated that the closedown of the Granby smelter, for the  purpose- of connecting the two new  furnaces, the erection of which is now  being completed, will occur about  the ist of September, for ten days.  ��� Several capitalists from Toronto, -  have been visiting' the coal fields of  the North Fork"' of Kettle river, accompanied by W. Blakemore, mining  engineer, preparatory to beginning  work on the company's claims. In  the party were Hon. E. J. Davis, commissioner of crown grants in the Ontario government, and Chas. G. Van  Norman, of Toronto.  CARDINAL SARTO THE  NEW POPE.  Chosen  Dr. Simmons,- Dentist, will beat  lis office, Postoffice block, from August 10th to the 16th, inclusive.  Dr. Westwood, of Grand Forks,  came up Thursday to attend the institution of King Edward Lodge No.  36*  Rev. Dr. McRae has preached his  farewell sermon in the Greenwood  Presbyterian church and moved to  Calgary.  During the month of July the treasurer of the city of Grand Forks, Mr.  McCallum, collected $23,000���most  of it taxes.  When he returns from the east, it is  understood Smith Curtis will assume  active managemeut of the Oro Denoro  mine, in Summit camp.  The \vork of laying the new S50  foot water main on the hill, to connect  with the new well that was recently  dug, was started this week.  There has some petty thieving in  the city of late. The offenders, when  found, will probably be made an example of by the police authorities.  Was   Chosen   Last  Tuesday���Title Is Pope  Plus X.-'.y  Rome, Aug., 4.���The-unexpected  happened and a man whose name had  not until yesterday been seriously mentioned in connection with the papacy,  r^cjsigj*j4;tljg,fiigh office. Cardinal'Sarto,  patriarch of Venice, was chosen Pope  Pitis'X,'  Joseph Sarlo, patriarch of Venice, was  born at Riese, diocese of Tre\ iso, in the  north of Italy, June 2, 1835, and was  educated at the seminary of his diocese  and at the Sacra Theologia, Rome.  His career has been that of a parish  priest, spent almost wholly in the north  of Italy. It is singular that Venice  alone of all important cities in Italy  has only patriarchal rank, while many  smaller cities are seats oR)ishops and  archbishops, Sartowas made patriarch  of Venice in 1891 and created and  proclaimed cardinal June 12, 1893,  and has.for his titular church in Rome  St. Bernard. He was a great preacher,  fairiy well known as a Wrilerand under him church interests in Venice  have prospered, He is a member of  the Congregations of Bishop and Regulars, Sacred Rites, Indulgence and  Sacred Relics and Studies.  School To Open.  Monday is the set date for the opening of the public school, but as no  principal has yet been engaged to take  the place of Mr. Turner, who recently  resigned, the senior division, at least  cannot be opened for another week.  The school board secretary bas received a number of applications, some of  them by wire, but no selection has yet  been made.  L. V. Redman has resigned . his  position as leather in the public school  of Grand'Forks.  BOUNDARY ORE-SHIPMENTS.

STRICTLY   BUSINESS  There is just one week more to get  your name on the voters' list. Those  who have not yet attended to this important matter should lose no time in  doing so.      James J. Hill has won his merger  suit in the state of Minnesota. Does  this'have any bearing on the early construction of* the Phoenix branch of his  railway ?      That Spokesman-Review printers'  strike did not last long^twp days���  but. it was long enough for \V. H.  Cowles, the proprietor, -to ascertain  that he was up against the real thing.  In the last few months first Oregon,  then Washington, and now California,  have had serious ontbreaks from their  ���respective state prisons ��� each time  with serious loss of life. Seemingly  there are prisons that do not imprison  securely.  There will be quite an increase in  the vote of Grand Forks riding this  year over the vote of the same polling  places at the last election. Evidently  there is more interest this time, combined with the fact that there are more  voters in the district.  A chemist down east lays claim to  an invention by which he can produce  life, and he has given out the receipt  for his alleged discovery. The chief  component part is plain, every day  salt, so that there is little danger of his  becoming too fresh.  Judging from the manner in which  the- editors of Nelson's three papers  are paying backhanded compliments to  one another, the political campaign in  that neck of the woods must be getting  exciting. AH kinds of old scores are  being dug up for the edification of the  general public.  The announcement that this week  the Michel collieries of the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal.Co. will begin making regular shipments of coke from the new  ovens, thus considerably augmenting  the present supply, will be welcomed  in the Boundary, where the two smaller  smelters, at least, have been much  hampered of late by the coke shortage.  Department ol Mines.  There is a* likelihood that before the  Dominion -session closes Hon. Mr. Sif-  ton will introduce legislation for the  creation of- a department of mines.  This important change was foreshadowed by the minister in his explanations  to the house during supply last week.  The minister has already engaged a  competent geologist in the person of  Dr. Haanel, and it is probable that an  expert mineralogist and an expert chemist and metallurgist will also be added  to the staff. By means of practical work  in the field and in the laboratory and  the compilation of reliable statistics,  it is hoped to give to the world information concerning Canada's mineral  resources of a much greater value than  has been possible in the past.

The management of the Spokane  Interstate Fair which is held this year  from October 5 to 13, has wisely decided to make a far better exhibit of  the mining resources of the country  than anything which has been shown  at Spokane in the last few years. ���'��� W.  A. Coplen has been appointed to  gather and arrange this exhibit. He  has already been hard at work upon  the project for several weeks and has  personally visited many of the camps  and has received assurances that the  exhibit this year will be from ten to  twenty-five times as lagre and diversified as it was a year ago.  One very small corner of the main  exhibition room was given to that department last year and many people  never discovered it at all. This year  the entire south side of the main exhibition building will be devoted-to  the mining department. The fair  management, recognizing the importance of this department of the exhibition, has agreed to see that the mineral  exhibits are sent to the fair .without  any expense to the mine owners.for  freight charges. -,y ���������.*'���  Votes at Election of 1900. -  The following were the votes of different Kootenay and Boundary ridings,  as at present defined, at the election  of 1900:  Slocan mine owners still complain  of a scarcity of miners.  A new strike of placer gold has  been   made in  the Cassiar  district.  Men are standing armed guarding  their ore dumps on Poplar creek, Lardeau.  Fifteen mines in Rossland and  Boundary shipped 22,000 tons of ore  last week.  The Hall mines smelter at Nelson  received 12 carloads of ore from the  Rambler-Cariboo mine last week.  The Enterprise is the largest employer of labor in the Slocan City  mining division, there being upwards  of 30 men on the payroll. '  Before the new year Rossland will  have ore concentration works of greater  capacity than any other mining camp  on the continent of America.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were: LeRoi, 3,800; Centre Star, 1,560;  War Eagle, 1,140; LeRoi N0.2. 560;  Kootenay, 300; Jumbo, 190; total, 7,-  640 tons.  Rossland Conservatives have, in mass  meeting, passed a resolutoin declaring  that the immigration of both Chinese  and Japenese should be absolutely restricted.  A force of nine men is at work at  the No. 1 mine, Ainsworth, one of the  oldest mines in West Kootenay. The  ore runs 100 ounces of silver to the  ton, and a new shaft is to be sunk.  According to the Trout. Lake Topic,  a newspaper published a few miles distant from the new Poplar Creek camp,  gold ore from Poplar creek is so rich  that specimens sell for a hundred  dollars apiece.  The St. Eugene mine, Moyie, is to  open up immediately- Speaking of  the* intentions of the company tne  other day, manager James Cronin said  that it would probably take two months  to get everything on to a good working  basis and shipments up to normal.  Representatives of the Vancouver Liberal-Conservative Association are making what amounts practically to a canvass of the entire city for the purpose  of securing names of voters, their addresses, and on which side they are likely to vote at the coming provincial election;  William Fleet Robertson, provincial  mineralogist, has been in the Windermere district, where he visited the  Ptarmigan and, Paradise mines. At  the Paradise there is oyer 50,000 tons  of shipping ore in sight. He considers the Ptarmigan and Paradise two of  the big mines of the province.  .

CAMPIIKLL Kl'DDIK,  Deputy Provincial Secretary,  I  It'is odd sometimes what a lot of  people are trying to "work" the newspapers. They seem to be possessed  of the idea that the editor must fill up  his paper with something anyway, and  he might as well print a puff for them  as anything else. They blissfully forget that every line in a paper costs  someone money; and that if it benefits any one it should, in all honesty  and fairness, be paid for. Of course,  they do not look at it in this way���  they never do when they are trying to  get something for nothing.  ���w  This brings lo mind that   Rossland  is  preparing for a Summer  Carnival  this  month, on  the  occasion  of the  annual . picnic  of the C.   J*.   R.   em  ployees  of   the   Kooteiiay-Doundary  division.    This is all right, and they  will  doubtless  have a, big  time, the  business   men  of    Rossland   making  .special efforts therefor, and announcing that they will give prizes amounting to  $5,000  for  the sports.    'I'he  secretary of the carnival committee is  a gentleman named A. J. Drewry, and  be is sending out   the advertising  for  the event.   'This  week  the   Pioneer  was favored with a letter from him containing copy for'an ad, etc., thatwould  call  for  from  $10   to  $15 worth of  space; and with the cbpy he  enclosed  two great big one dollar bills, in   full  payment   for  space to be used.    Of  course, the money was returned to Mr  Drewry, with thanks for his   thought-  fulness, as this journal  does  not  do  business on any such picayunish basis.  ��<���  Now, it is a question whether Mr.  Drewry realized how munificent he  was becoming, when he made such an  offer, with the glittering bait of the  actual cash itself in good Canadian  money. If he continues to show his  generosity in this manner, the first  thing he knows the publishers of the  country will be going to Europe in  their private yachts, to say nothing of  taking tours in their auios. He should  be careful in making such startling offers, or some may die of joy at the  sight of so much "long green."  Speaking seriously, however, any  man must be possessed of an abnormal  amount of cheek" to make such an offer as the above. Every publisher  needs* all he can get in these strenuous  times, but as far as the Pioneer is concerned, it will take chances of get  ting its banker to edit its overdraft  column���we hive a bank account, ir it is  often in red���rather than accept such  a proposition. Some of our contemporaries may do business in that way,  and we hope they will get rich at it if  they do, but it is not a business proposition in any sense.  Slater Shoe Advertising  ifying the "Slater Shoe"  Short talks by the Slater Shoe ad man, No. 8.  The Slater Shoe trademark is practically a quarter million  dollar guarantee behind every pair of "Slater Shoes,"  ���because measured in cold commercial parlance that is the  value of the modest little mark by which " Slater Shoes " are  identified.  The Slater Shoe makers have the sole and exclusive right  to use any combination of words containing the word " Slater'���  as applied to shoes and this right is duly set forth in imposing  looking   legal   documents with   large  red  seals  and  much  Vermillion tape, .......  ���but the exact wording to be found on a genuine " Slater  Shoe" are the three words "The Slater Shoe" in a slate frame-��� 4  no initials, no other words, no marks of any kind.  This particular and precise form of words is rigidly adhered  to by the makers of the genuine "Slater Shoe" to enable the  wearer to easily identify the real " Slater," though the makers  have the exclusive right to use the. word "Slater" with or  without other words.  And to you _that identification mark "The Slater Shoe/'  has a protective value which no other shoe without these precise  words can have,��� <-,..���''������  ���because behind it is the commercial value of a trademark  worth $250,000.00 in cold cash.  ���and be it remembered that the value of a trademark is !  measured txactly by its ability to command trade,  ���'because no matter how popular a trademark may be or  how skilfully or largely it may be advertised  ���'it could be robbed of its value in one short season by  inferior goods made and sold under it, "���*',.  ���'and do you think the " Slater Shoe "makers who have  for so many years been building up this valuable trademark  would entertain any three-cent-saving proposition to skimp the  unseen vitals of a shoe in which so valuable an asset as a quarter  million dollar trademark is wrapped up ?  Not likely is it?  The Slater Shoe  Made in Canada 40 years.   Goodyear welted.  For men $4.00 and $5.50.   For women $3.50 and $5.00.  Cholera Infantum.

Nearly every eligible name has been  placed on the Nelson voters' list.  Up to date there have been 736  votes registered in the Ymir riding.  The Vernon News reports great political activity in the Similkameen riding.  There are now over 1,000 names on  the voters list for Kamloops and district.  H. 13. Gilmour, Vancouver, again  announces that he bas retired from  politics.  In all probability J. A. McDonald,  barrister, will be the Liberal candidate  in Rossland.  There is some doubt as to whether  or not John L. Relallack will accept  the Liberal nomination in Kaslo.  There now seems every likelihood of  the total number of voters in the  Cranbrook riding reaching 1,000.  Up to last Saturday there were 705  names entered on the list,  On two hours' notice a body of  sixty Camborne Conservatives met and  organized themselves into an association.

"I got temporary-relief,'but it. came, hack again and  again, and for six long years I have suffered more misery and agony than I can  tell. It was worse than death. My husband spent hundreds of dollars for physicians' prescriptions and treatment,  without avail. Finally we moved to Bos  one county, our present homo, and one  (lay 1 happened to see an advertisement  of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy with a testimonial of  a inan who had been cured by it. The  ease was so similar to my own that I  concluded to try the remedy. Tbe result was wonderful. I could hardly  realize that.
