The report  slated (hat  a  sum of approximately  $600 had  been    collected,    which   with   that  from other prospective sources ihny  felt certain could easily be increased  to about $1500.

Both of  the  new    managers  are   popularly  known in town, the  former recently  as partner   in  the   Dominion hotel,  and  the  latter of the Butte hotel.  The   King's   hotel   is   among   the  largest in the town, thoroughly up-  to-date as regards comfort and convenience, steam- heated throughout  and  an   ideal    stopping-   place   for  either transient, or. those employed  at the  big   mine,   from  which place  it is distant but a few minutes' walk.

NEW CP.R.  BOAT  "NASOOKIN" PLYING  BETWEEN   NELSON AND JCUSKANOOK  This steamer the "Nasookin" of the Canadian Pacific Railway British  Columbia lake service was launched early this year. It is the same type  of vessel that the company already has in service on the B. C. lakes and  rivers, designed for passenger service, stern wheel and capable of making  landings at any point. The steel hull was built by the Western Dry  Dock Co. at Port Arthur, Ont., and the ship constructed at the company's  own yards at Nelson-, where there are several hundred men employed.  The vessel is 202 feet long, with 39 foot beam, and will carry 550 passengers, having sleeping accommodation for 170 people. It is fitted up  with all the luxuries of the modern ocean liners, ample provision being  made for accommodation of meals arrt. berths.  This steamer is now in service Between Nelson and Kootenay Landing, connecting each place with the co'mpany trains. The picture shown  is one taken with the holiday crowd from Nelson to Kaslo. The Indian  name "Nasookin" signifies Big Chief.    .

Since leaving Phoenix, Mr. Hemenway   has'donc  considerable mining  on his  own  account in Mexico, the  present affairs  of which   country he  regards   as   very  critical   and  fully  expects    some   active - interference  on the part of the States in the very  . . ���         - _"������������ ���� "i�� oi����L._ in me very  able taste, was another feature that  near future.

Annual Mining Report  The annual report of the Hon.  the Minister of Mines, for the year  1912, compiled under the direction  of the provincial mineralogist, W.  Fleet Robinson, has been .issued  by the department. The .report  shows a gratifying increase in(the  production of minerals over that  of the. preceding twelve months.  As in ��� ��� formeY' -years,' the output  from the Boundary mines is again a  striking feature, 74 per cent of the  province's total ore production com  Road Plans Now Ready  As matters now stand it looks as  if another year was to be allowed to  lapse before people in this town  would be able to safely negotiate  the road journey to Grand Forks.

Barrett of Winnipeg, Dominion government inspector of breweries "and distilleries.  He was accompanied on his trip by  J. E. Miller, inspector of inland revenue. While here the couple  made an exhaustive inspection of  the books and plant of the Phoenix  Brewing company, the result of  which more than' exceeded the expectations of the officials. In view 11  of the fact that the visit was totally I  unexpected, the management arell  to be congratulated on  the splendid \\  settled condition of affairs in that  country and 'is showing the risks  run by the mining companies he  mentioned the case of one mine  whose whole cleanup was confiscated by one of the warring factions.

The total tonnage of ore  mined from all the mines in the province was 2,688,532 tons, and out of  ��� this   the   Granby mine   in   Phoenix  accounted  for 1,250,689  tons, with  sufficient  ore   in sight   to   supply a  similar  ore    tonnage   annually   for  the next seven years.     Accompany-  the  report  is   probably  one   of the  most complete mining maps of the  province ever  issued by the department.      It  has   a   measurement  of  35x28 inches,   and   a scale of thirty  miles to the inch.    All of the mining  division boundaries  are  outlined in  green and the accompanying legend  indicates   the roads, trails  and portages,   the    existing   railroads   and  those   in   course    of . construction,  mining  and   land-recording   offices,  Hudson Bay posts, missions, Indian  villages and other data of incalulable  value to   the   travelling mining  engineer and prospector.      We understand that the   report and map may  be obtained  gratis on application to  the provincial mining department at  Victoria.  With the object of convincing the  moneyed men of Great Britain that  British Columbia is one of the most  advantageous places in the Empire  to invest money in, the provincial  premier, Sir Richard McBride, left  for England on Tuesday. While  in London the premier will no doubt  be officially invested with the honor  conferred upon him some months  ago by the King. On his way he  is to have an interview with Premier  Borden at Ottawa on matters concerning the financial relations between B.C. and the Dominion.  i he has prepared the people of Phoe  nix a fine feast, which the officials of  the   roads    department   pi event   us  from enjoying  by   muzzling us.     At  a meeting   held a  few  days ago, it  was agreed   to await   the verdict of  a surveyor,   who was  asked to submit a report   as to  the feasibility of  a road   from J.   Mulligan's   place to  Hale.    That   report   is now  ready,  and what  is more  important, is the  fact that   by   adopting   this route, a  grade of  less   than   six   per cent is  assured to Hale where a. connection  is made   with, the   new   automobile  highway, in   all   a   distance   of four  miles.  In the   meantime  a  general complaint is   heard   as to what is styled  the needless waste of public money  now going   on in   an attempt  to renovate the old Denora road, which,  if the   other   route   is   adopted   will  be entirely discarded.      In this connection, the contention is made that  as   the work   has   been   delayed so  long, the   only   proper   thing to   do  was   to   await   the    report   of   Mr.  Wescott, which is expected on Monday   next.     Not   the   least   of   the  advantages   possessed   by   the proposed   new   route,   is   the  fact that  the   road    has    a   southern    slope,  which means  that   the highway will  be clear   of  snow   about   six weeks  before   tbe    Denoro   road    is   even  passable.      It   also   cuts   off   three  miles   of the distance  to the Forks.  DISTINCTIVE  are the feature of  The   funeral   of F.   S.   Cody, the  Anglo-American   aviator,   who   was  killed    in    an    aeroplane   accident,  took place in   the soldiers' cemetery  at Aldershot   a   few days ago.     Enormous   crowds  lined   the   route  of  the funeral  cortege.

The^treasure, which  was variously estimated to be worth'  about $5,600,000,000 (mostly guesswork we are told), was supposed to  He at  the bottom of a lake in Columbia, South America, where "history" stated it  had been thrown by  the early inhabitants  during the exercise of some  religious rite.    The  Spaniards had already  made an attempt to find the prize and had succeeded  in    lowering    the  lake  for  fourteen  feet,   but   it remained for  the engineer of the English company  to accomplish  the task of emptying  the lake  of water altogether.    Unfortunately another  difficulty faced  the explorers.    The  bottom  of the  lake was found'to be covered with a  layer    of   mud   twenty-five   feet  in  thickness,   and,   to   crown   ali,   the  deposit became as hard as rock.  An  attempt  was  then   made   to  carry the  tunnel  from the  edge of  the lake to the centre, the idea being  that  the mud   would  more expeditiously be got away from that point,  but there was  never enough money  available  to finish   the project.    In  default of this, however, shafts were  sunk in the dried mud and channels  driven  through it at  various spots  and more small ornaments and precious stones  came  to light, but altogether    the' value   of these  and  ether   discoveries   was   not   much  more than $10,000, so after an outlay of $75,000 it was finally decided  to abandon the search and wind up  the company.

The road is 350  miles long by  the Yukon river from  White   Horse  to   coffee  creek and  115 miles by government trail from  Coffee creek to Canyon city, whence  it  is  only  sixty miles  to  the new  gold field.      Many prospectors leaving Skagway intend going over the  White    Horse-Kluane     route,   described    in    a /bulletin    issued   by  Dr. Brooks of the  U.S. geological  survey, as the best way to reach the  Sushanna.  California's Law Now Effective  Last Saturday, Aug. 9, was the  last day under the Alien Land act of  California, according to which no  Japanese either as corporations or  individuals may acquire a title to  land in that state. Individuals now  holding land may continue to do  so during their natural jives, but  may not devise it to Japanese heirs.  Corporations formed before the law  went into effect may hold land for  fifty years. The object of^ the law  is to prevent an increase in the  amount of alien holdings, and gradually break up the colonies now  existing.   �����.   The rule of the road in British  Columbia is "keep to the left." In  the State of Washington it is the  reverse.  A Trial Solicited.  Phone BO.

Han nam, Prop.  lOne  of   the   most  unscrupulous  politicians that ever existed outside  of South  America,  has just passed  away in   the  person   of Mr. Sauer,  Minister    of    Justice    and   Native  Affairs, and, acting Minister of Railroads in   the  South  African Union.  Sauer at one time held the portfolio  of Colonial   secretary   under  Cecil  Rhodes, and  throughout his official  career  his   reputation   was said  to  be especially  odorous,   particularly  during  the   course  of an   election.  He   was one  of those  God-fearing  Boers that we often read about during   the late   war. but who  seldom  existed, except  in   thc   imagination  of the Pro-Boer sentimentalist.  One of his most flagrant violations.  of the code occurred during an  election at Vryburg. - Things were  not going well with his party, and  to make matters doubly worse, he  had received information that 400  voters were coming on a certain  train. This might have been all  right had not the wily Minister of  "Justice" received- private information that they were anything but  friendly disposed towards him. Did  the hon: gentleman elect to take  his chance? Not much. Sitting in  a government office chair and drawing a fat salary was infinitely better  than sheep farming, so he gave orders as chief of the railroads, for  the oncoming train to be delayed.  It must not arrive until -after the  close of the polls. But to the consternation of Sauer and his lieuten-  "It wil! not be surprising," says  the Monetary Times, "if the investor who has only a few thousand  dollars to put in bonds, finds it  somewhat difficult to comprehend  the large capitalization of the Canadian Coal and Coke company. The  capital, we believe, is $15,000,000,  $4,000,000 being preferred stock,  and $11,000,000 common. Is such  capital really necessary for the coal  and lumber developments proposed  by this company?"  ERVOUS. LIFELESS  DEBILITATED MEN  Flogging is   the penalty   for trafficking in   women in   Great Britain,  and since  this method  of punishing  white slavers was adopted, most of  them have fled  the country.

According to Sir  Reginald   Craddock   of   the    India  council,   the   traffic   in minor girls  throughout   that country   is  on the  increase.

The splendid and patriotic  action   of the   sister  Dominion   of  New   Zealand     in    providing   this  battleship for the  great and necessary  purposes    of  Imperial   defence  affords not only an  example but an  opportunity to the Canadian people.

Mr. and Mrs. J. Vivian, formerly of
Phoenix, are now installed at the Canadian Consolidated company's Highland mine near Aiusworth, where Mr.
Vivian has charge of the mine boarding house.
Among the interested spectators at
the hospital ball, on Wednesday, was
Pat Olune, who claims to knowjmore
of the inside working of a hospital
than any man in the Boundary. Some
years ago he made a very close study
lasting six months, of the ceiling of
a ward in the Grand Forks hospital.
Kenneth McGregor, of Nelson, representing the manufacturers of the
new Steelite powder, was a visitor in
town for a few days this week. Mr.
McGregor Informs us, that through
the courtesy of C. M. Campbell, assist-
supt. of the Granby, a demonstration
of the efficacy of Steelite will take
place at th»t mine sometime next
week. ' .
After being for all practical purposes, a closed shop for some time
past, and under new management for
a time, the Deane hotel has again

Mrs. Geo. Stanfield is now an assistant to the clerk of the" weather. A few
days ago she was iu receipt of a set of
instruments for recording the'amount
of rainfall  in these parts, and in view
as everyone knows is acknowledged to
be the king pin of alldomestic felines
At at rate this is the opinion of a par
ty who visited the local hospital last
Monday, where among the patients
were three individuals who had passed
through great tribulation.   One had
been blown up with dynamite, another
was recovering steadily from a fall of
about eighty   feet  into  the  Granby
glory hole, while thc third is making
steady progress after being run over
by a wagon loaded with wood, which
must have weighed not an ounce less
than  two tons.   Occurences such as
these would lend support to the theories that the fellows around here are
either too tough to die, or the doctor
wont permit such a thing.
Tonight, Saturday,  is to. be a gala
event at tho Opera house, when the
Chicago' Vaudeville company, whose
clever performance on Wednesday and
Thursday of    this week filled every
seat in the   local Opera house,  will
again make their bow to a Phoenix
audience with an  entirely new. program.   In addition  to the  program,
a three-reel animated picture drama,
of thrilling interest, entitled "Through
the Test of Fire," will be presented,
together with an intensely amusing
film entitled "Father-in-law Furcoat."
The Chicago Vaudeville company require little recommendation from us,
their advertising medium is the thousand and odd   people, who witnessed
their efforts earlier in the week and
who no doubt will take this further
opportvnity of enjoying a further two-
and-u7half hours wholesome entertainment.     The,admission is as  before,
fifteen and twenty-five cents.

Phoenix Men Still Alive
The   many friends in  Phoenix of
Jos. McNeil and his brother, will Be
gratified   to  learn   that   the   report
circulated throughout the Boundary-
as to  their having  been drowned in
the Fraser,  was  unfounded.    Both
of the" brothers are now residing in
Calgary  and    have   written   letters
to friends in town.    The former explains that  they  were   both   in  the
neighborhood  of the Fraser  about
the time  of the  scow accident, and
this together with  the'fact that two
of the men drowned   possessed   almost  similar names,   no doubt lent
support to the rumor.

The Phoenix  City band received a
solar plexus blow on Thursday, when
Geo. Caine, its popular leader, left for
his home at Dalton,  England.    Mr.
Caine, since coming to Phoenix some
yeais ago, has closely identified himself with the work of the local Methodist church as leader of the choir, and
was always ready to place his musical
talent at the disposal of the various
entertainment committees which from
time to time were formed for the purpose of raising money for some humanitarian object.   His departure is a
distinct loss to the town.
