Granby's Mine Employees  Subscribe Handsomely���  Redivision of Fund.  A meeting took place on Wednesday at the residenceof J. McLaughlin,   of   the   trustees   of  the  funds  raised in   Phoenix  for patriotic pur-  poses.    The purpose of the assembly was  to determine "on some settled basis for the disposition of the  money.      It  developed   during   the  meeting that the amount  for distribution    monthly   will    total   about  $2000,   $1775.40  of which  is  contributed by the  staff and  other employees of the Granby mine, and approximately $250from other sources  in and around the city.  After some discussion and "careful consideration of the claims of  the various societies, it was decided  to divide the money as follows:  $600  to   the  In the matter of the machine guns,  the money for two of which  is also  in   hand   or   promised,     the    same  committee went into  discussion  on  the  subject, lbut   no   authoritative  I statement having been given out by  the government,  the sec.-treasurer,  P. B.   Freeland,   was instructed  to  obtain from.'.the Ottawa  authorities  some   information    on   the~ matter,  which to say  the  least is very perplexing.      The   following   comprise  the Phoenix committee in charge of  both funds:   j. G. Mullen, manager  of the  local Bank of Commerce; P.  B. Freeland,  sec-treasurer;  W. X.  Perkins, J. McLaughlin and Dr. W.  L. Ritchie.       . '  Copper Situation  Another Kick  . Our friends in Grand Forks have  ever possessed the unenviable faculty of rubbing us the wrong way.  This  time   it  is the "talented" and  G. W. Walker, who more than  any man in the States, has his finger  on the pulse of the world's copper  industry, has the following to say  of the situation in his weekly letter  in the current issue of the Boston  Commercial: i  ���'Copper is slightly more active,  but at  somewhat lower prices than  prevailed a week ago.   Lake is 18j^  to 20 cents, and electrolytic is 18jJ_jT  to 18^ cents a pound.    These quotations  have   been made on transactions   in     relatively   small    lots.  Signs of increasing activity are making their   appearance and the prospect is that another substantial buying movement   will  soon   be under  way.    There is  a growing number  of enquiries and some big manufacturers now negotiating for war or-  orders have asked for short options  on a large tonnage of copper.       ,  j      tv *-+    my.-.   .

The whole ,is a splendid choice,  ajid reflects a.deal or credit on the  committee, who have taken care  that all the money shall only be al-  loted to societies working in collaboration and 'under" governmental  authority.

Of course he took  care to state correctly that his home  city was going to buy a couple. A  knowledge of true facts is essential  in compiling a despatch, and a  greater readiness on the part of the  Grand Forks publicity expert, to  obtain them when wanted, would be  be appreciated in Phoenix. Why  on earth the affairs of Phoenix and  Hediey should figure in a despatch  from Grand Forks'is. a moot point,  but* why," we ask, was the tVa'ding  post of Montreal, or the little Indian village of Toronto omitted.

The machinery is the invention of an  old-time prospector, and it is claimed by the inventor that this machine  is specially   adaptable   for   saving  flour gold.    The machine resembles  somewhat a fanning mill on a large  scale.    It is driven by motor power,  either steam or gasoline, and is put  on  a  raft  which ties up to a bar  which is to be worked.    Mr. Math-  eson and his associates in the enterprise will place the machine in operation on the Fraser river.  Lucius W. Mayer, consulting engineer of the Canada   Copper Corporation, was in Princton from New  York last  week, says   the  Similka.  meen Star,   and  in  company  with  Oscar Lachmund, the general man-  ' ager, visited Copper Mountain. The  visit by  the  engineer  at   this time  means a great  deal  to   Princeton.  The company is seriously considering  the best means for transporting the  ore to their smelter at  Greenwood.  A railway from Princeton to Copper  Mountain   and  Voigt's Camp   has  been under consideration  for  some  time, and many are of  the  opinion  that construction work on it will be-  gin this fall..  Weather Forecast  From   far-away Alaska comes a  subscription    from    a   son   of  the  Dominion. ' Writing  from .Valdez,  on July 26th, Palmer J. Cook, form-  jerly one  of the  local   Granby mine  shiftbosses, encloses a money order  for ten dollars.    No definite instructions  for    the   disposition   of   the  money accompanied it, simply a request that the Pioneer place it where  we consider it will do the most immediate good.   We have accordingly handed over the donation to Mrs.  J. A.   Morrin, sec.-treasurer of the  Woman's Patriotic Society, whose  work on behalf of our  own boys is  deserving   oif   even   more  support  than  has    hitherto   been   accorded  them.     Although   they   have   forwarded many packages of personal  field comforts to Phoenix soldiers in  the trenches,   a  great  deal of their  activity  has  been   centred   on Red  Cross supplies, so  if there   are any  others of our  subscribers   living in  outlying   points  desirous  of emulating Mr. Cook's example, the Pioneer would be pleased to acknowledge  any sum, however small.  HEAVY SENTENCE  ON DIAMOND THIEF  Pleaded Guilty���Wife Discharged���Located Goods  In a Dream.  Razors For Soldiers  A. E. Acton, the hair goods man,  was sentenced at Nelson on Tuesday, to imprisonment at. hard labor  for one year.     The prisoner and his  wife were both under arrest charged  with the   theft of diamond jewelry  from  a  hotel  in   Rossland.     They  were fairly well  known  here where  they had   worked   up quite  a good  business   in    their   line   of goods.  The charge against the woman was  dropped, 'but the   husband pleaded  guilty and restitution was made by  Mrs.   Acton handing over her own  diamonds in place of the stolen ones  which  Acton  said  he   had  thrown  away in  the  street.    A strange incident in   connection   with the case  was the finding of the empty settings  These were found   in a cupboard of  the   room   occupied  by the Actons  during their  stay   in Nelson.

Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed  to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves.     It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand   Forks  properties of the   Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, and  surrounding i�� for miles on all  sides, are acres  of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor.    The title deeds  to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series  of mining  laws, are  unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted  of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province. '  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary vas  an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to  some   of   its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger.      The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the provincevthe motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads. t .  No locality is better served with railroads than the Boundary district. At  present this section is served by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  C. P. R^-and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  LOO. IF.

A despatch from Capetown says  that the South African government  proposes to settle the former German possesion with a strong body  of British-African colonises. Preference is to be given to those who  have taken part in the campaign.  Speaking at the midsummer meet-j  ing of the Manufacturing Association, at Spokane, R.

Some years  ago the woman applied for naturalization, but went to. America and the  application lapsed. A second ap  plication was refused.  The hard lot of many English  women who have sacrificed their  nationality by marrying Germans,  was illustrated the other day in a  London police court, when Grace  Jungh, who was only married a day  before the outbreak of war, was  sentenced to a month's imprisonment for living with her parents at  Gravesendj one of the prohibited  areas. Her husband had been interned and she was unable to obtain  work on account of her German  name. ..To make matters worse she  was faced with a severe penalty if  she assumed another name.

He is emphatic in   the  statement   that   the great  majority of the Swedes are for the  Germans,   whose   successes 'of late  have emboldened them'.

When the attention of Count  Wrangel, Swedish ambassador in  London, was drawn to the rumors,  His Excellency characterized them  as absurd. "The relations between  Sweden and Russia," he said "were  of the most friendly nature."  There can be no doubt but that  the publication of a pro-German  book oo the war, the author of  which is Swen Hedin, the Swedish  explorer, has prepared the British  people for any kind of unfavorable  rumors of Sweden's intentions. The  book was something of a shock in  official circles and is being widely  read in the United Kingdom.

AW0IUBERFUiiI8e0��ERY  A& eminent scientist, tbe other day,  ��*������ his opinion that the most -wonderful discovery of recent years was  the discovery of Zam-Buk. Just  think! As Boon as a single thin layer  Of Zam-Buk is applied to a wound or  a sore, such Injury Is Insured against  blood poison! Not one species of  microbe has been found that Zam-Buk  does not kill!  Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk  is applied to �� sore, or a out, or to  skin disease, It stops the smtfrting.  That is why children are such friends  Of Zam-Buk. They care nothing for  the science of the thing. All they  know 4s that Zam-Buk stops their  pain. Mothers should never forget  this.  Again. rAs eoon as Zam-Buk Is applied to a wound or to a. diseased  part, the cells ibeneath the skin's (surface are so stimulated that new  healthy tissue is quickly formed. Ibis  forming of fresh healthy tisane from  below is Zam-Buk'a Becret of healing.  The tissue thus formed is worked up  to the surface and literally casts off  the diseased tissue above It. This Is  why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.  Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of  101 Delorlmier Ave., Montreal, caU&d  upon the Zam-Buk Company and told  them that (for over twentyiflve years  he had been a martyr te eczema. S3_s  hands -were at one time so covered  with sores that he had to sleep In  gloves. Four years ago Zam-JBuk was  Introduced to him, and la a 9sm  months it cured him. To-day���ever  three years after bis cure of a disease  he had for twenty-flvo Tears���ho Is  still cured, and bas had no traoa $_  any return of the ecisema!  All druggists sell Zam-Buk at 68s,  box, or wo will send free trial boas If  you send th!s advertisement and ,  stamp  (to pay return postafps).  drcsi; Zam-Buk Co., Tareat��_  I  M  m  1  ���\ i  A i  ____________  r'T-i���TirihViii-iTttr,i��
