We are always glad to see you whether you buy or  not.  Government  Buildings  Constructed  The importance of Fort   George as  tlie central point of the vast   surrounding country has been duly  recognized  by the Provincial Government, and the  work of the. erection  of the  splendid  public  building   for  the  district   has  commenced without loss of time.   Mr.  R.   C.   Randall, government agent at  Barkerville, to whom was assigned the  task of choosing a  site, went   exhaustively into the merits  of  the  different  locations proposed, and  decided that  Fort George had many advantages for  buildings of so important a character.  The site chosen is an ideal one, the  property  facing   west  Central   avenue  (a i oo-foot thoroughfare).    The   main  building will  be   50  by   78 feet, and  will contain the court house  and jail,  The land registry office, a separate and  distinct   building,   will   be   30   by 60  feet.     Work is proceeding  as   rapidly  as  possibly,   and   it   is   expected   the  buildings will be ready for occupation  by    Decern bur    ist. ��� Fort    George  Tribune.

Farewell Saclal uitkerlaf  On Monday evening an "At-IIome"  was given by the local Oddfellows and  Rebeccas to their friendly enemies, the  Knights of Pythias and the Pythian  Sisters. The event was of the nature  of a double header, the object being to  say farewell to G. H. Corbet, an Oddfellow, who having been connected  with the Granby company for 4 years,  has resigned, and now has left for a  short visit in Seattle before going to  the Portland Canal district. Speeches  were made referring to the regret felt  at his departure, to which Mr. Corbet  replied. Mr. Corbet's many friends  are sorry to see him leave Phoenix,  but wish him every advancement in  his line of business, which they believe  he will receive.    ;  "^ 'Aaalhm^tfiept^ofY.tbe: gathering was  to square things with the K./P-'s. rlt  will be remembered that a few week's  ago, a baseball battle took place between the- two orders, wherein there  was both science and amusement. At  any late the K.P.'s won, and the Oddfellows took this* opportunity to even  up the score, which they did satisfactorily. In this case, however, instead of bat and ball, the instruments  used were ice cream and cake. The  game was called shortly after midnight  when all made home runs.  A Public Nnlitnce  Many of the residents of the city  are quite exercised over an injustice to  which they have submitted for some  time but are now on the eve of rebellion.  We refer to the practice of cow-owners  allowing their stock, with huge noisy  bells attached, to run at large during  the night. The complaint is a just  one. It seems that the sweetest grass,  at night, giows under bed room windows, and these creatures with the soft  eyes, naturally go where the sweet  grass is���whence the complaint.  There are few but have experienced  the unpleasantness of it.   When Brindle  is    approaching,    a   distant    clatter  awakens   the weary worker sufficiently  to allow the  words of E.  A.  Poe to  float to his half unconscious mind.  "Hear the clanging of the bells  Brazen bells.  What a world of solemn thought   their  monody compels  In the silence of the night,  How we shiver with affright,  At the  melancholy   menace  of  their  tone."  But the meditative mood recedes as  the cow advances and soon the onetime sleeper shouts as he hurls the  firewood prepared tor the morning.  "How they clang and clash and roar,  What a horror they outpour .  On the bosom of the palpitating air."  Possibly this nuisance will continue  until the pound is called into service  and unless some of the exasperated  citizens change their minds, that time  is not far distant.  To the cow-owners we would sug-  guest that "an ounce of prevention is  worth a pound of cure."  Development Work at Pile Mines  C. II. Flood, superintendent of the  Fife mine, was in town for a few days  lust week, and reports development  work at the property.as becoming more  encouraging daily, a large ledge of  splendid ore having been uncovered.  Of Cost of High Living���General Rise in .Cost of Food  The cost of living during the past  twenty years is the]subject of a special  article in the Labor Gazette of recent  date. It Is based on an investigation  by the department' of labor into the  nature and extent of the general rise in  prices of food which has occurred  during the past few years.  As causes affecting in their immediate or' more natural application the  supply of an article, the following are  mentioned: Variation in harvests or  yields; improvements or other changes  in methods of production or transportation with special reference to cold  storage; the operation of trade combines, trade agreements, etc., and legislative enactments.. From the standpoint of causes preliminarily affecting  the demand the following are mentioned: Seasonal ,causesl( changes in  custom or fashion, industrial expansion  involving the different productivity.  industrial; expansion  Under the heading of industrial ex  pansion oc-'urs the following statement: "Under this heading falls lobe  considered a feature of the situation  which has been declared to be at the  very basis of high prices prevailing.  The past decade has been one of exceptional expansion in Canada. Immigration has been on an unprecedented scale. I^rge areas of land  have been brought under cultivation.  "Accompanying' this has been a  heavy expenditure, chiefly of borrowed  capital on railways, towns, public works  and other large undertakings. The  point emphasized in this connection is  that many of these enterprises have  not yet, become productive. Hence  the weight thus far has been thrown  almost entirely into the demand side  of the scale. The demand has been,  in'the first instance; for the material,  consumed in the factual undertaking,  but, iKercircle of i^'dustriaiiand^trado;  activity, once set in motion, has gone  on widening until it has reached all  but the uttermost edge of the com  munity.  HEAW INCREASES  "Heavy increases have taken place  in lines brought primarily under the  influence of expansion such as lumber,  food supplies and articles produced by  the labor deflected, whereas goods of  distance, growth and manufacture appear in many cases less affected, other  things being equal.  "In the general result wages and  prices have been following each other  for some time past in what has been  described as an ascending spiral. The  shortening of hours and the slackening  of effort are perhaps best considered  as a parallel phenomenon with the rise  of wages. So likewise is the fact that  with greater spending power has come  a general rise of the standard of living.  Wastefulness and extravagance may  have supervened, having their root in  the distribution of so much accumu  lated wealth. A standard of this kind  once established, is very difficult to  dislodge. The luxury of today" says  John Stuart Mill "is the necessity of  tomorrow."  COST OF  HIGH LIVING  "This point of view in its present  application has been summed up in  the remark that the problem today is  not one of the high cost of living but  one of the cost of high living; but the  situation is wider than any mere personal issue and its solution depends to  a degree on the transition from potential to actual productiveness of  buildings, railways and towns now  under construction, whereby what have  hitherto been very potent factors in demand will become factors also in  supply."  The whole list of prices is swayed ait  intervals according to the confidence  or timidity of purchasers and investors,  that the organization this system has  been increased and perfected of late  there would seem evidence to believe.1  Tbe rapid discovery from the panic of  1907 is by many attributable to the  increased confidence which increased  organization has been able to produce.  C. P. R. IN HUNDRED .  ;^-'-^^;;:--MILLl6^. CLASS  Records Broken in Gross Earnings, Working Expenses  Montreal, July 29������Well over a  hundred millions weie'lit* figures issued  yesterday oy Vice-President I. G. Ob  den of the C.P.R. in charge of finances,  giving- the earnings for June, the last  month of the financial year, and also  the gross figures for the whole year  since July i, 1909. In every direction  records were broken and new high  figures set, both in gross earnings, net  profits arid working expenses, although  the. percentage of expenses was li*ss  than previously as, compared to the  undertakings of the system,  Forest Plrei In Vicinity ol Pboealx  Though our knowledge of the forest  fires which have been raging throughout the country, had been confined  chiefly to reports from the outside  colored with blue smoke and distant  rosy illumination during the nights,  yet, on last Saturday and Sunday, some  of our people were becoming somewhat dubious as to whether our knowledge of the fire would not be more  personal. In tV*e sections adjacent to  the town there have been some hard-  fought battles. It was only with great  difficulty that a large gang of men saved  from destruction the long trestle on the  Wellington spur. Trombley's ranch  also had a very narrow escape, arid  but for the efforts of a gang of C.P.R.  men the buildings would have been  wiped out by the flames. Mclntyie's  mill, too, at Silica was for a long time  in great danger. We understand that  the fire crept within 20 teet of the  buildings and only, the determined and  strenuous . resistance of the squad of  men accounts for its being in existence  today.  On Saturday and Sunday, the flames  worked their way to the tops of the  hills near the town, and began to back  down toward Spion Kbp. There being  'JiaHireezc t'ttcrp*o��rcb��--v���.- Juojt v~P.i*-3,  yet was approaching so near as to cause  some anxiety on the part of the residents of that vicinity. A gang of men  were kept busy in retarding the fire's  progress and all were relieved when  Monday brought a favorable breeze,  thus removing the danger.  CITY COUNCIL MET  WEDNESDAY EVENING  Date of Delinquent's Tax Sale  of Property Changed  The  regular   meeting  of   the   city  council was held on  Wednesday evening at 8 p.m:    Jfrayor D. J. Matheson,  Aldeinien A. Almstrom, Theo,  Biner,  P. H. Cosgrove and A.  D. McKenzie  were present.  A   communication  was  read   from  D. Whiteside, city solicitor, stating that  the council had no authority to return  any   portion of the  license  fee  to a  license holder tnrough his  ceasing to  do business on any account.  The finance  board passed the following accounts:  Phoenix Pioneer.   .....  $34.50  Phoenix Electric Light..   112.00  T. Mulcare..   .........      9.00  E. Cusick............'.."     9.00  154-50  Municipal Rate By-Law No 66,  was read a second time and finally  passed.  The Board o( Works were authorised  to gravel portions of Banner Street,  Ironsides Avenue and  Second Street  The date of the city tax sale of  property for delinquent taxes was  changed from September ist to September 12th, 1910.  Alderman P. H. Cosgrove was  elected acting mayor during the ab-  scence of Mayor D. J. Matheson.  Public latlallatiM  The Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship society held a public installation  of officers in their hall, in theMcArdle-  Andersbn block, on Sunday evening,  July 31st. A. O. Johnson, president  for the B.C. district officiated. After  the officers were installed, a lunch was  served to about 75 guests.  F. H. McLean, C.P.R. land agent,  of Greenwood, was in town on Thursday, securing help to fight the fire between bere and Eholt. He has about  300 men under him, fighting the flames  in his jurisdiction. The North Fork  fire, is, he says, the biggest of them  all. ;  Splendid Vaudeville for Fair  The Spokane Interstate Fair man  agement announces that the high class  vaudeville program which will enliven  dull moments between the racing events  will be the best of the kind ever offered  west of the Mississippi River. Robert  H. Cosgrove, secretary and manager  of the fair, has just returned from a  trip east where he added materially to  the high priced acts booked early in  the season for the week of October 3  to 9. He picked up additional top-  liners at the Moose Jaw, Sask., Carnival, at the Winnipeg Industrial Exhibition, at the North Dakota State Fair  at Grand Forks, N.D., and at the  Minnesota State Fair. At Grand Forks  he witnessed the exhibition given by  one of Wilbur Wright's flying machines,  which remained in the air twenty six  minutes. This exhibition was such a  success that Mr. Cosgrove is now negotiating for a similar demonstration at  Spokane. At least four of the highest  class and most sensational of the many  great acts imported from Europe will  be seen on this circuit.  Bleer-Uckie CnIiiI  On Monday, 15th Aug., a 15-round  boxing will take place between Billy  Biner and Scotty L'ackie in the opera  house.   Phoenix.

Both men have been  training steadily  for  a  month  for this fight on  Aug.  15th,   and each   one   feels  confident j  CHANGE CARRIED  IN KING'S OATH  Bitter Fight Waged���Premier  Persistent���Followers Revolt  London, July 38,���More and more  bitter has grown the fight over the  King's declaration oath. Yesterday  when Premier Asquith moved trie-second reading of accession declaration  bill his Nonconformist followers rose  in revolt and forced an amendment  that produced an immediate joining of  forces in the ranks of the Churchmen  and anti'Roman Catholic elements.  As the debate proceeded crowds,  gathered in parliament square and demonstrated against the bill. Bxotestant  societies sent out sandwich men bearing placards with the words "No Popery" in large type upon them.  As disclosed in the discussion, the  bill substitutes for the statement that  the do:trines of the Roman Catholic  church are "idolatrous" the simple  clause:-���  "I do solemnly and sincerely in the  presence of God profess, testify and  declare that I am a faithful member  of the Protestant Reformed Church by  law established in England, and that  I will, according to the true intent of  the enactments which.secure the Protestant succession to the Throne of my  Realm, uphold and maintain the said  enactments according to law."  The Nonconformists, who hope one  day to see the Church of England disestablished, object to the qualification  as by law established" and their  amendment today was directed today  so as to read:  "I do solemnly and sincerely in the  presence of God profess, testify, and  declare that I am a faithful Protestant,  and that I will, according to the true  intent of the enactments which secure  the Protestant succession to the Throne  of my Realm, uphold and maintain  the said enactments to the best of my  powers according to law."  The Premier, faced with withdrawal  and accepted lner*me*ndmetrt. ' Then       .*���*  the  ultra-Protestant  party,   which is  opposed to any  change,  came out in  force and the situation   was critical for  the government.

The tourney will consist of horse  racing, boxing exhibitions, and a five-  mile marathon, between Angus Mc-  Gillivray, who has earned quite a reputation in the Boundary as a runnert  and Joe Madore, of Montreal fame, for  a purse of $150. Boxing exhibitions  will then be in order, when Jack  Scholes, the ex-light-weight champion  of Canada, Bob Pritchard, middleweight champion of Wales, and Jack  Collins, England's invincible middleweight, will fight for honors. An interesting preliminary will be put on by  Phoenix favorite bantam -weights, Danny  and Harry Deane. The management  offers a dollar a minute, after ten min  utes fighting, to any one whom Bob  Thomas fails to outpoint. Any one  wishing to take part can .do so by paying ($5.00) forfeit money five days  previous to the date of the tourney.  services of Jack McArthur, of Rossland, as referee. Jack has refereed  fights all over Canada, and has the  reputation of giving satisfactory decisions.  Plsbioc at Chrltle-u Lake  A. G. Howe and family, who have  been camping at Christena Lake for a  few days, returned home on Monday.  If fish as a food has anything to do  with it, Mr. Howe's friends will expect  evidence of great brain expansion as  they understand that he has been feast,  ing on mountain trout which he caught  in considerable numbers.  Dr. Dickson was in Grand Forks on  Thursday, engaged  in  medical   work. |  summonses to their supporters to attend in the House and record their  votes, these precautions turned out to  be needless, however, as party lines  were obliterated and the second reading, which included the Nonconformist  amendment, was carried 410 to 84.  The bill which now goes to the committee stages provides that the pronouncement against Roman Cathol-  cism shall be eliminated and the clause  "and declare that I am a faithful Protestant" substituted.  It is believed that the chief diffii-  culties have now been removed and  that the bill will survive the committee  stage and be accepted by the House  of Lords without further trouble.

On  the first day of this month there' came  into -operation the new Liquor Act of  ,1910, a Uw  which   is .considered by  legal experts as the most efficient and  drastic piece of legislation   within th*  covers of British Law books.  , It is to  be hoped that this enactment may not  be efficient only as a theory but also as  a matter of enforced practice, and if we  may, judge  by, prediction,   Attorney-  General Bowser  is  one  who intends   S^Mi[m^^^_m __ ,  ^;iln>.yiewj of, this  it would,be well if  's K every hotel man, every constable, and  every citizen become acquainted   with  the details of the law, and act' accord  ingly.    ,, .  Under this heading there is anotherj  issue of interest to people of our Pro  ���    vince���:namely the "Canada  Temperance Act," and its  possible  sphere of  influence.    Though ^his Act was given  by the Dominion Government  shortly  after the Locel Option plebescite met  its defeat, yet there are  many  people  ��� who are not aware of its  powers, and  in view of the immediate possibility of  the movement"being  before  some  of  ; our towns for consideration, are asking  the "meaning of this Act.  In answer to such inquiry  we quote  from the-Standard:  "Cstistlss" and "Cities" Cia Now Vote  "The Canada Temperance Act" was  passed by the Dominion Parliament at  Ottawa a good  many  years  ago.    It  gives' the people of the  Dominion, irrespective of Province, or politics, the  ;   right to vote on  the ' question  of the  Liquor Traffic in the various Counties  and Cities of Canada.   It is commonly  called  the  "Scott  Act," because the  Hon. R. W. Scott, former Secretary of  State,  introduced the  Bill to Parliament"   It  has  been   amended   from  time to time during the last  20  years  and is at present in  operation   in the  Maritime    Proviuces   with    excellent  effect.    It is practically a "Local Op  tion Law," because it gives  the option  to  the people in any   locality,   i.e.  county or city, to settle thequestion of  the licensed  liquor  traffic  for  themselves instead of having  it  settled for  them at the instigation of brewers; distillers, 01 even by Liberals or Conservatives as such.    An appeal was made  to the Dominion Parliament to pass an  Amendment to the "Canada  Temperance Act" to  make it apply to B. C.  That has been done, and we now have  an Act, or Local Option  Law.    For  the purpose of information, the following points of '.he Act are given:  1. "The Canada 'I emperance Act"  or Scott Act, is a Dominion law.  a It applies to B. C, to "counties"  and "cities," each by itself.  3. There are at present  8 counties  and 21 cities in B. C.  . 4. The Voters List to be used is the  Dominion Electoral List.  5. The Municipal List is not used:  hence, women at present have no vote,  which is regrettable.  6. Twenty-five per cent of the elec  torate of any "city" or "county" must  sitfn a petition to the G ivernnr-General  in Council asking that a vote be taken  in said city or county  7. The petition is placed in the  Lind Registry or Sheriff?*, office, for  10 -days for public examination.  Thence forwarded to the Secretary of  State, Ottawa.  8. It must be advertised for two  weeks in two newspapers in the district.  9. The voting for this Act cannot  take place on an election day,  10. Returning officers are appointed  by the Secretary of State who are re  sponsible for carrying out the voting  according to law.  11 The Governor General in Council appoints the day for the polling,  and if a recount of votes is demanded,  the party asking for it must do so with  in one week, and put up $100 in t*o  sureties of $50 each for costs. The  loser pays the costs at the discretion of  the Judge.  12. A simple majority carries,  whereupon proclamation is made by  the Governor-in-Council that in such a  county or city, the Canada Temperance Act takes effect.  13. The law is stringent respecting  any attempt to prevent or intimidate  voters.  14. Whichever way the votes go,  there is no appeal for three yeais.  15. The law is brought into force  in 60 to 90 days after the vote as per  section 109.  16. Any "city" or "county" having  no licenses in force when the petition  is adopted, part 2 of the act "shall be  come and be in force" after 30 days.  Section 109, 2.  17. Provision is made for medical,  manufacture and sacramental purposes,  and for personal use only.  18. Manufacturers of liquors can  only sell in 8 and 10 gallon quantities  and only to the, persons specified in  the Act.'      > /  ipy.i-*��at��ii-f!��^^  1900, sets forth that no shipper, agent  or other person can send liquoi into or  sell liquor in any local option district,  personal or family use excepted as  stated above in par.  17.  20.

High social position doea not create fineness of fibre, and nobility of character; it merely affords ��� broader field for their manifestation. The grace,  ease, kindness of heart, simplicity and charm that distinguish Lady Laurier  to-day are but the flowering of the natural characteristics that made her  beloved, when, In 1868, she married Wilfrid Laurier, the "silver-tongued"  young lawyer, struggling (or recognition.  Tho daughter of O. K. R. Lafontalne, Lady Laurier, was born In Montreal, and educated at the school of tbe Bon Pasteur and tho Convent of  the Sacred Heart, and there became proficient in music. Her love of muslo  has made her a patron under whose kindly sympathy and substantial support a number of her proteges are winning laurels In the world of music  to-day. Losing her mother at an early Age, Lady Laurier was thrown Into  the society of her future husband under romantic circumstances, which led  to their marriage. Then followed days of discouragement, watching and  waiting, and of hope deferred In their home at Arthabasltavllle, where the  future Premier, then Jn delicate health, was working hard for recognition  with the untiring sympathy, companionship and inspiration of his wife.  Lady Laurier bas always accompanied her husband to Ottawa during  the Parliamentary sessions, as she does now in all his travels, for, "life is  too short," she says, "to be separated long." Her acquaintance with the  great public men of the world is large, for in the hospitable home of the  Prime Minister the leaders in all lines of activity are always welcome. Her  days are busy ones, filled to the brim with social duties and her charitable  and philanthropic work. She is one of the Vice-Presidents of the National  Council of Women of Canada, and Honorary Vice-President of the Victorian  Order of Nurses, besides being active In personal charities.  In her, home, at Ottawa, Lady Laurier has a superb collection of gifts  and souvenirs presented by royalty and others���the coronation medal from  Queen Victoria, a gold snuff-box set with diamonds, a medal from Pope  Pius X., a curious cup from the Chinese Prince-Regent, a golden key from  Liverpool, autograph letters and portraits and a host of other treasures���  but she cherishes most the magnificent tiara of one hundred and seventy-five  diamonds presented by members of the Senate of Canada.  *.l.r��J Kcordlur iu Acl of l�� rtrlUMin tfCuadi, lu II,. ,<i| 1KB, ly W.

War Against the Hojse-Fly  A good  purpose is served  by the  articles  now  appearing  in  Canadian  and  American  papers  declaring  war  against the house-fly, says an exchange.  In an article it is remarked  that   England is so thoroughly rid  of flies that  the English rarely screen their houses.  "How did the English do it ?    As we  must do it; by each   family keeping its  house clean.    Screens  will   keep flies  out  of  the  house, and  fly-paper will  kill   them.    But  neither  gets  at   the  cause     There is only one  way to  do  away  with flies, and that is to keep  clean the place where they breed and  love to feed."   The advantage of this  plan of campaign is that it is   not only  against the fly but against  filth.    The  means are as  important as  the end.  A place that will aff>rd no comfort to  flies will  be  a  clean  and wholesome  place which  wiil  not  give  offence or  Interesting Anniversar--  Thirty nine years ago on Wednesday  this week British Columbia became a  province of the Dominion ' of Canada  and since that date this fair western  province has progressed and flourished,  and'bids fair to become the greatest  and most wealthy of all her sisters.

Pew people  ���re afraid of germs. Vet the fixotxt Is a fanoy and  the germ ii a fact. If tbe germ could be magnified  to a size equal to its terrors it would appear more  terrible than any fire-breathing dragon. Germs  eari't be avoided. They are in the air we breathe,  the water we drink.  Tbe germ eon only prosper when the condition  of the system gives it freo soope to establish  itself and develop.    When   there is a deficiency of  vital force, languor, restlessness, a sallow cheek, '  a hollow eye, when the appetite is poor and tbe  sleep is broken, it is time to guard   against the germ.    Vou can  fortify the body against all germs by the use of Dr. Pierce's Gold-  en Medical Disco very.   It increases the vital power, cleanses the  system of clogging impurities, enriches the blood, puts the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition in working condition, so  thut the germ finds no weak or tainted spot in which to   breed.

Copper is taking out over  4,060 tons each week',from'the Mother  Lode mine, and about 400. tons'each  from the Oro Denoro and Jack i Pot.  The company will take ore from the  Rawhide as soon as the Greenwood  smeller improvements ate completed.  A new copper mine has been dis-,  covered at Quatsino and is being developed by the 'Cunad an Americs-n i  Exploration company. A number of  men are now employed stripping the  leadf>and prospects are v<.ry bri^hi for  the opening of a rich mine at thut point,  Much satisfaction is expressed  throughout the Kamliops district over  the fact that the coal measures of tin-  North Thompson are short.y to be  thoroughly explored by diamond drilling. Coal measures outcrop in several  parts of the valley, but their extent and  value has not as yet been ascertained  with positiveness.  The West Kootenay Mining Corporation, Ltd., has taken hold of the  Toker gold-milling property and is installing a new plant and 10-stamp mill.  This company has also interested itself  in the Cork and other mines on the  south fork and intends to do a lot of  work in that district. The purchasing  and superintendence will be managed  by A. Fournier of Kaslo.  The spur of the White Pass railway  tapping the Whitehorse copper and  iron fields is finished, and the shipping  of ore over the road to the smelter will  begin immediately. The road needs  to be ballasted. Two hundred tons a  day are to be shipped from the beginning. Thus the Yukon territory  begins its first large commercial shipments of copper and iron. The  Pueblo carries three per- cent copper,  but is valued chiefly for its iron, which  is wanted mostly for its excellent fluxing qualities.  Plans are being formulated looking  to a renewed activity in the celebrated  silver-lead district of the Kootenays,  interest particularly attaching to the  Highland group of claims, recently acquired by a company, in.which a  number of prominent British Columbia  people are interested. An expert, who  has just returned from an-inspection of  the company's propeity, which is located in the Ainsworth mining division,  on Kootenay lake, brings a most favorable report of the mining outlook,  and suggests that some additional history will be written ere long in connection with that famous region.
