Monroe, secretary  of the Spokane Chamber of Commerce, stating that the organization  would make an excursion to Phoenix  and other British Columbia towns, arriving in Phoenix Wednesday, September 12th. The paify will consist of  about 150 persons, comprising members and their wives, will travel in a  special train of Pullman's, and much  of the traveling will be done by night  to save as much time as possible during the three days' trip. Every year  the chamber takes a trip like this to  some of the nearby, districts, and this  year it was decided to come to British  Columbia. Arrangements will be  made here'to give the visitors luncheon  and an opportunity to see the important inines of this camp. Mr. Rumberger, who was in Spokane this week,  consulted .with Mr. Monroe in the  matter.  The party will leave Spokane at  10:30 p. m., September nth, going  first to Republic; leaving Republic,  they arrive at Phoenix about noon on  the 12th, and at Grand Forks about  4:30 p. m. Arriving at Nenson at 7  a. m. the next day, they take the  steamer on Kootenay lake to Kaslo  and return, leaving Nelson at midnight,  arriving at Rossland at 6:30 a. m., and  starting for Spokane again at noon.  They will be going some, while on this  trip.  Laaor Day Picnic.  It has been decided by the labor  organizations of Phoenix to hold a  picnic on Monday, September 3d, Labor Day. There will be a parade, led  by the Fire Brigade band, and a list of  sports at the picnic grounds, with a  special speaker for the occasion. The  day will wind up with a ball at Miners'  Union hall. At a meeting recently  held, committees were appointed to  have charge of the affair, with the following chairmen : W. L. McDonald,  executive committee; Ira McCoid,  entertainment committee; Joe Thornton, games and sports; John Cassidy,  refreshments. John M. Mclver, mar-  shall.   -.-������.  MAKES UP FOR  LOST TIME  Boundary Mining Notes  City  Council    Does  Business.  Much  Tackles Postoffice and  /���;   erage Questions.  Lee \V. Parkison, formerly employed  at the Granby mines, and who left  here last October for California, was  killed in a mine at Tonopah, Nev., on  August 7 th, leaving a widow at Ceres,  California, where he had a ten-acre  farm. He lived in Phoenix two or  or three years, and had a home on the  New York townsite.  Boundary Side Lights  C. P, R. carpenters have started  work on the new boarding home for  company employees at Eholt.  A. Erskine Smith & Co., have purchased the Blackhawk livery stable  from James McAvdle at Grand Forks.  Royer's stage makes the trip from  Midway to Oroville now at night. Mr.  Royer will probably start a livery stable  in Princeton in the near future.  Last week Thursday Arthur H. Nap-  per, an old employee of the Hunter-  Kendrick Co., at Grand Forks, was  married at the residence of Jeffrey  Hammar, to Miss M. 1.. Saddler, of  Rugby, England.  Walter Waterland, formerly a hotel  man in Greenwood, was killed by Mrs.  Getty, near Midway, Friday. He had  been trying to gel into the Getty  home. The coroner's jury absolved  Mrs. Getty from all blame.  George C. Rose, who lived for eight  years at Cascade, but now the publisher of the Kelowua Courier, has  been looking after his mining interests  in the Christina lake section, in which  he has gre.tt faith.  George 13. Todd was granted his  license for a hotel at Gloster City,  Franklin camp, Judge Clement, in the  county court, having reversed the decision of the license commissioners,  who denied it.  Next Saturday the ratepayers of  Grand Forks will vote on issuing $4,-  000 in debentures, for the purpose of  paying one-half the cost of building a  much needed bridge across Kettle river  at that point, the government to hear  the other half.  The marriage took place at Rock  Creek, B. C, on August Sth, of Hugh  Blake Walkem, resident engineer of the  C. P. R. at Vancouver, to Mrs. Lilo  St. Aubyn Culhbertson, of Vancouver,  B. C. 'I'he Rev. Lcitch-Porter performed the ceremony.  The Grand Forks steel structural  works, of which J. C. McDonald and  Angus J. McDonald are proprietors,  were started up this week, and are said  to have orders ahead to last a year,  from the smelters and other concerns  in this district. ' The main building is  52x74 feet, a second structure being  32x62 feet.  Lattat Prices In Mela's.

Owing to one cause and another,  for several weeks the city council- has  held no meetings. But this week the  members endeavored' valiantly to make  up for lost time, so far having held two  meetings, with another on the program  for this afternoon.  At Wednesday's gathering there were  present Aldermen .Marshall, who was  chairman in the absence of the mayor,  Carson, Kane, Brown and Oxley. A  communication was read from R. El  Lemon, warden of the Nelson jail,  enclosing account for- keeping of prisoners, in accordance with the amended municipal clauses act. This brought  out some discussion,':with the decision  to endeavor to keep prisoners here in  Phoenix. It also prompted G. W.  McAuliffe to make an address to the  members of the council, regarding the  city having to pay the expenses to Nelson of prisoners in jcivil cases. No  further action.was taken.  After ordering the following accounts  paid, the council-adjourned till Thursday :  Granby Consolidated . .$     1   75  Cameron & Huff. A,���.... .

Thursday afternoon, according to  adjournment, the council met again,  and this time tackled two important  propositions, namely, postoffice locations and a sewer system. Regarding  the former, on motion of Aids. Kane  and Carson, the city clerk was directed  to draw up a resolution to be sent to  the Dominion government, showing  that, in the opinion of the city conn  cil, the site ^elected for the postoffice  in this city is not suitable, and offering  a site in the city hall. The mo ion  carried.  A motion also prevailed by Oxley  and Carson that the mayor appoint a  committee to investigate and report  on the advisibility of the city and  business men installing several septic  tanks for taking care of the sewerage  of the city. Those appointed on the  committee were Aids. Carson, Kane  and Oxley. The committee has been  interviewing and doing some investigating along the lines indicated, with a  view of improving the sanitary condition of the city, and will make a report at today's meeting of the council.  N. Lemieux was appointed pound-  keeper, the pound to be the skating  rink. Isaac Crawford was appointed  to make the semi-annual audit of the  city's books.  On motion ot Aids. Carson and  McKenzie the city clerk was ordered  to secure order blanks for city use,  and to notify storekeepers to furnish  nothing except on written order of the  city clerk, mayor or chairman of board  of works.  The board of works was authorized  to take such steps as deemed necessary  to repair the sidewalk on upper Dominion avenue, and the council adjourned till this afternnon at 3 p. m.  NO SECOND HAND  LICENSES.  Bat  Greenwood    Man    Wai    Married    Is  Spokane.  A. L. White, a furniture-dealer of  Greenwood, B. C, secured a mar  riage license yesterday, after quibbling  with "Cupid" Butler for some time as  to the price of the document, says the  Spokesman-Review. He said he had  read in the Spokesman-Review that the  fee was to be cut in two and that he  wrote Mary K. Caldwell to meet him  here and they would be married. Miss  Caldwell met him in accordance with  the letter, and when White purchased  his license yesterday he was surprised  to learn that the lee was $5.  White said that being in the furniture business, he thought such a thing  might be possible as to secure a second  hand license, the same as the purchase  of a second-hand piece of furniture.  He was assured that he could not procure such a license and that the reduction of the license lee had not been  authorized by the legislature. Whereupon, White, with an ever ready smile  upon his face, paid the statutory price  and he and Miss Caldwell left the  license window with blushes diffusing  their faces.  Stunt of Postoffice Officials.  A remarkable thing happened at  Boundary Falls last Monday. Subscribers to the Pioneer at the Falls actually  ceived their copies of the Pioneer  mailed the previous Saturday���-the  mails thus travelling in the usual time  of eight miles in 48 hours. Residents  there are wondering why this mad  haste. One subscriber at Boundary  Falls received the Pioneer ol" July  28 and August 4 in the same mail on  August 9, and to receive the paper  lor once in the average slow time for  this section almost took his breath  away, and astonished him to such an  extent that he felt constrained to call  the Pioneer office up on the telephone  and inform him of this remarkable fea'  in mail transportation.  At the  Skylark   ihe   main  shaft  is  now down over 200 feet.  Shipments from the  Sno��->iuir  an-  still going out to the Trail mih.iu.-i.  . Diamond drilling has be.: 1 re-u-ned  at the Mother Lode mint- of tin- l!riii>h  Columbia Copper Co.  Work has been disouituiu'-'l   >v the  Sew   dominion Copper C<>. on ih_ Croesus  claim, neat Anaconda.  Water is out in the B. C, mine  sufficiently to permit of putting on a  few men at the property.  It is understood that something is  likely to happen in Phoenix Amalgamated matters before long.  At the Lone Star and Washington,  recently bonded by the B. C. Copper  Co., eight men are at work.  This we'ek the Dominion Copper  Co.'s diamond drill was set to work in  the Steinwinder mine at the 114-foot  level, .  The force at the Meadow Lark has  been slightly increased, and drifting  has been started to the west from the  shaft.  On the City of London, in Central  camp, near the City of Paris and Lin;  coin, Frank Gome has started development work.'  According to John Kirkup, of Rossland, there "are about as many, men  employed in Phoenix as. in Rossland  camp���approximately, 700.  The B. C. Copper Co. has put a  force of men at work on the Ruby  claim,-near Boundary "Falls, which was  recently taken on a working bond.  With the Emma, the Oio Denoro,  the Mountain Rose and:. the B. C.  mines all in operation, Summit camp  promises to be a busy section this fall  and winter.  This week the Dominion Copper  Co. received the big blower and the  100-foot stack, intended for the enlargements now taking place at the  Boundary Falls reduction works.  It has not been definitely decided  yet whether the Great Northern will  reach the Victoria shaft of the .Granby  mines on the north or south' side of  the hill on which the properties are  located.  Even smail shipments of ore have  been discontinued from the Mother  Lode mine, till the company's enlarged  smelter is prepared to blow in the first  of the three giant furnaces being installed.  It is expected that shipments from the  Mountain Rose will shortly be increased by the Dominion Copper Co,  A raise is now being made from the  tunnel to meet the shaft from the glory  hole, when the ore can be economically  broken down and placed on the cars.  At the sixth ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of the Granby  Consolidated, which will be held in  New York, Tuesday, October .2d, a  new board of directors will be elected  for the ensuing year and what is undoubtedly the best annual report yet  made by this company will be presented to the shareholders.  A glory hole has been started on the  Idaho, the ore being taken out through  the long tunnel, now in 400 to 500  feet, and which runs under the Great  Northern spur. The Idaho ore bins  are full, and railway cars have been  ordered for two or three days, shipments to be started as soon as they are  received.  In Franklin camp the   Maple   Leaf,  recently   bonded   to   George   A.   Mc  Leod and H. W. Warrington, and later  turned over to John Dern, the wealthy   ���  mine   of Salt   I���ike   City, and  W. C.   P  Thomas  is   showing   remakably   weli  with development.     Itis now reported  that a copper sulphide ore   body   100  leet   wide   by   500   feet inlength   has  been   exposed by surface cuts.  Aldermen Herbert Bunting, of  Greenwood, is forming a syndicate to  lease and bond the E. P. U. mine,  near that town, each member to pay-  in $25 per month to a development  fund. The property already has considerable work done on it, has made  shipments of ore running $60 to $80  per ton, and it is believed that it can  be made a profitable undertaking with  adequate development.

This makes  a   total   of $1,215,000   in   dividends by this company thus far.  'made payable in   1906, which is  at the rate of nine per cent, per  annum.  The dividend record of the  Granby shows that thus far four  declarations of . this character  have been made, the first being  in December, 1903.

This afternoon at two o'clock the  .".nnual court of revision will be held  at the city hall, tc listen to objections  to the assessment made this year by  the assessor. The court consists of  Aldermen Oxley, Kane, Brown, McKenzie and Marshall. So far but two  objections have been registered one  by the Dominion Copper Co. and the  other by W. R. Johnson, of Toronto,  owner of the New York townsite. Both  will be represented by Arthur M.  Whiteside, solicitor of Greenwood.  LET THE POST-  OFFICE CONTRACT  James   Thompspn   Will   Put  Up the New Building  For some months past T). J. Mat he-  son,   the   local   postmaster,  has   been  laboring   under   many  disadvantages,,  on  account of his  cramped   quarters  and growth of the postal business   in  Phoenix.     It  was absolutely essential  that he secure other and  iarger quarters.    After the matter had  been  thoroughly canvassed, pro and con, it was  decided to erect a building on   Lot 1,  Block   15,  which is   almost   adjoining  the Pioneer building.and directly opposite   the    new   Miners'   Union   opera  house.    This  seemed   10   .satisfy   ihe  greatest number of residents, and those  who   have  occasion   to do the   most  postal business, anil is as central a site  as could   possibly be secured in Phoenix.    The site was shown to  |ohn  R.  Greenfield, inspector for ihe posiofhce  department, when here last, and  met  with his entire approval.  As the Dominion government could  not see its way clear to erect the building, it had to be done b'y private subscription, and this has been the method  of financing the matter. The Granny  Co. made a liberal subscription, and so  did prominent business interests at  either end of the city, the total estimated cost of lot and building being  $3,500, Plans were drawn for a one  story building, about 60 feet long, which  will be arranged to accommodate the -  postoffice and custom house only.  Tenders were asked for and received,  and this week the contract was awarded to James Thompson, who is now  making preparations for going on with  the building, having placed an order  for the lumber.  ' Flae. Chance for laveitaeaf.  There is a splendid opportunity for  investment at present in Phoenix, in  the way of building small cottages for  rent. There is not an unoccupied  residence or shack worthy of the name  in the camp, and.the demand continues to grow with the gradual  growth of the city. One residence  was to become vaeant this week, and  before the-fecple-moved out -at least-  half a dozen were after the' house.  Duncan McDougale could rent the  double cottage he is finishing on ..Dominion avenue twenty_ times. At- the *  Granby office there is always, a. list of  fifteen or twenty employees, waiting  for the next vacant cottage owned by  the company. A. S. Hood, the rental  agent, says, he could readily secure  tenants for at ieast twenty houses if  they were to be had.  Here is a chance for some one to  secure a good return on his money, by  building a bunch of four or five room  cottages, which would be snapped up  long before they were completed at  prices that would surprise the owner.  If a man finds it necessary for any  reason to move out of a house, it is a  serious question, as there is such a demand for habitations here.

The announcement this week that  the Gran by Consolidated has declared  another dividend of three per cent, on  the issued stock of the company, payable September 15th, official notice of  which will be  found  in  this  number  of the Pioneer, will be pleasant news,  not only to the shareholders of.  the  corporation, but also to every resident  of the Boundary.    The amount to be  paid -out next month   by  this  leading  mining company in British Columbia,  is $405,000, which, with the two pay-  - ~-ra.nts of like amount made already  -this-year, makes $1,215,000 in  dividends   distributed   by   this  company  -thus far- for   1906..   And   there   is a  -possibility  of the  directors  declaring  ; another  similar  dividend   before   the  /; year is  gone, making   the  total   pay-  ��� ments for the year $1,620,000;  This" places the Granby Co. on the  list of regular dividend paysers at the  Y rate   of  9  per cent,   per annum-���a  very   satisfactory   return    indeed    to  shareholders.    And the very fact that  the company is paying profits regularly  .'. is of itself of the utmost  importance.  Those who furnish the large amounts  ���  to finance mining or other enterprises,  naturally wish to see a steady return  for the amounts invested���something  coming in with regularity in the shape  of   profits  when   that   stage  is  once  reached.    And  it  may  be  stated, in  passing, that  many a  large  industrial  enterprise is today paying a much less  rate of interest on the investment than  the Granby Consolidated. The Granby  directors could pay even  larger dividends were they so disposed, but they  wisely prefer to accumulate  a goodly  reserve for contingencies and improvements, which may arise in any business  or enterprise.  It i_iworth while, now and then, to  see ourselves as others see us, and  what others see ot the vastness of the  inherent resources" of British Columbia, published in the public prints, as  is usually the case, is the most advantageous kind of publicity. Year by  year it is becoming more and more the  custom for those taking a trip to the  far west to include British Columbia  in the itinerary, and they invariably  return to the effete east enthusiastic  over this province and its bright future. The remarks of two prominent  men are worth quoting, in this connection.  B. E. Walker, general manager of  the Canadian Bank of CommeJce, oh  returning to the east from a trip to  ^British Columbia recently, was full;.pif  his subject", and is evidently a* far-sfeief  ing man. He declared that - the press  of Canada should realize how much  greater are the wants of British Columbia than the provinces of the  plains. "The Pacific province," he  said, "is ah empire in itself, and to develop its resources a great deal of  money has to be spent," and stated  .that, in his belief. British Columbia  would become the revenue producing  province par excellence of the Dominion.  So much for the manager of one of  our greatest banking institutions,. Now  let us see, what..that master railway  builder, James J. Hill, recently: had to  say about British Columbia. Here is  the way he is quoted : ���  " The farther north, a given fruit, a  given grain, a given race, the better  ,the quality of each. For this leaspn*  British Columbia would, before long,  be recognized as producing the finest  fruits in the world. A beginning had  been made in the Okanagan and Kootenay districts with good results, which  have considerably increased and made  their mark in the world. Grow your  fruit, work your magnificent land, and  all the railways you want will be added  unto you."  And Mr.  Hit Dlvially.  This is the way a Colorado bachelor j  poetically lays a bouquet at the feet of  his'Tjest girl: There is gladness in  her gladness when she's glad; there is  sadness in her sadness when she's sad.  But the gladness of her. gladness nor  the sadnessof her sadness is nothing  to the madness of her' madness'.when  she's mad."���Harper's Weekly.  B.

C. E. Smitheringale f�� r  several years published a weekly there  called the Slocan Drill, and Irom ihe  outcome Mr. S. drilled to some advantage. The city ordered some printing done, a little matter of aljout  $2,000, and when pay was slow, the  publisher took notes. One for $560  fell due, was protested, and finally  sued on by the publisher, who meanwhile had discontinued his paper.  Judgment was obtained, and the. sheriff  of Kootenay, S. P. Tuck, proceeded  to seize ihe city. Then the mayor and  aldermen all trjed to resign, but it  would not work. One or two might  do it, but all could not, as there would  be no one to accept ;the resignations.  The sheriff finally served his papers  last week at the home of the city  clerk, that worthy conveniently being  out fishing. Next month the matter  will come to a show down, when the  thirty days of grace have expired.  Mr. Tuck says he will levy a rate on  all the property in the little city, and  proceed to sell to get the amount of  the judgment. It would seem that  the property holders in Slocan would  be wiser to face the music and arrange  for a settlement of the claim, for the  printer will get his own. It does not  pay lo try to beat a publisher.  This is the season for forest fires,  and they are already beginning to do  no small amount of damage, not alone  in the Boundary, but in the Kooto  nays. The railways are responsible for  some of these destructive blazes, but  the careless prospector, has a share to  ���his credit, also. Drastic measures alone  will have a tendency to save our magnificent forests, which,., a few - years  hence, will be sadly missed, and the  time is rapidly coming when such  measures will undoubtedly he taken.

S_arw_M_, Agent, Phoenix, B.C  Speaking of the poor mail service  in the Boundary between certain parts,  the little village of Boundary Falls  seems to have its share of troubles.  We are informed that the Pioneer, instead of taking the regulation two days  for transportation over'the eight miles  intervening, now takes all the way from  three to eight days; and the mail from  the Great Northern train at Midway-  is carried through Boundary Falls by  stage to Greenwood every night, and  comes back to the Falls the next day  cn the C. P. R. train. ��� And these are  but a few of the troubles along mail  lines at the Falls. How long the  Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux, postmaster-  general, proposes to allow his subordinates to do business in this way no  one on this footslool can tell, but perhaps, if a Dominion election was to  be pulled off in the near future, there  might be a change.  As a gentle hint to non advertisers,  the Cranbrook Herald has this to say.:'  "The newspaper man saw a farmer  friend of his receiving a set of harness  from the freight office, the consignment  coming from a Winnipeg mail order  house, and remonstrating with him at-|  tempted to prove that he was making  a mistake, as many of the local dealers  would furnish him the same goods or  better just as cheap, and keep the  profit home. 'But this is the first time  that I have heard there was a harness  shop in this town. I have taken your  paper for five years and have never  seen a line of advertising in it about  such an institution in all the time- I  have been a subscriber. But, you see,  the Winnipeg house has kept me posted all the time.'"  It behooves anyone contemplating  building this year, to lose no time.  At the meeting of the Mountain Lumbermen's Association, held at Nelson  last week, the price of lumber was  boosted a dollar per thousand, with  better grades in proportion. And there  is no surety that another raise will not  be made in the near future. Even at  thc present prices it is found difficult  to fill orders, so great is the dt mand  in the northwest and locally.  W_r Qttnapatalatt Recommends Pcra-ns.  B.
