The Granby  Co. employs 500 men, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000, while theJEtaw-  hido pay roll is $18,000.  Devoted to the Interests ofthe Boundary Mining District  The Phobnix Pioneer is  published in the highest  municipality in Canada���  altitude, 4,800 ft. The city  has a population of 1,500,  and possesses first-class  hotels, opera house, schools  FIFTEENTH YEAR  a������mm i     ���<  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, AUG. 9, 1913  Facing Death  Letters which have been received  within the last few days from EI  Paso, the present home of Charles  Biesel, formerly supt. of the Snow-  shoe mine, here, show plainly the  desperate straits in which Mr. Biesel and Mr. McDonald were placed  up  to the  timely  arrival of Presi  immediate release. The margin between life and death was extremely  close, and that they ever escaped  even injury is considered more in  the nature of a miracle by themselves and friends.  Biesel and McDonald were incarcerated in the prison at Chilian! ua,  and even as they entered the guiles  they were met by an escort conduct-  Jug- three prisoners out to be shot,  and throughout the period of their  detention the reports of successive  rifle volleys announced the fate of  other prisoners.  Protests by Biesel and McDonald  had no effect on  their captors, who  paid not  the  slightest attention to  them.      Other prisoners   were  led  out and   told to  escape, only   to be  shot down  after the poor wretches  had  proceeded   only   a. few  yards.  All the   prisoners   had  been  disposed of up to  dusk, except Biesel  and   McDonald   and    the  chaffeur,  and, after  a light meal, the guard,  whose  graces   Biesel  had won,, intimated that they were   to be dealt  with early  the next morning.    Not  a soul  entered   the   guard room for  some   hours,    and,     realizing   that  nothing   short   of   a   miracle could  save them,  the   night was devoted  to prayer.      At  eight  o'clock   they  were   again   visited, and   the   three  captives were conducted to a narrow  enclosure and'"lined'.up, with Biesel  on  the left and   McDonald  in  the  centre.     There was very little ceremony about  the operation, and the  soldiers   were  engaged   in   loading  their rifles when a mounted messen-  _ ger arrived and handed  a document  to   the sergeant.     It was   an   order  /    for the   instant  release  of the three  prisoners.  Inspects New Zealand's Gift  Provincial police officer, George  Stanfield returned to town on Saturday from' N^w Westminster, where  in company with J. H. McDougall  he formed a police escort for Pun-  jau'b Singh, the demented Hindu,  who was committed to , the asylum  for   the    insane.      While   passing  B. C. Mining  dent Huerta order authorizing their  through   Vancouver  on   the return  trip, Mr.  Stanfield was afforded an  opportunity for a visit to the battle-  cruiser, New Zealand, and as luck  would   have  it   his   visit  coincided  with that  of the  New Zealand residents in  Vancouver, and  for whom  a    special      reception    had      been  planned.   "When the crowd of New  Zealauder.s   arrived,- of  course   we  had to  get off," said  Mr. Stanfield,  "but the few minutes I was among  them, opened my eyes to the character  of our  fellow  subjects   in   the  south seas,  so  much so, that I can  fully believe  them  to  be capable of  even greater sacrifices than the gift  of a battleship.     One thing that impressed  me was the pardonable air  of proprietorship   assumed   by   the  visitors..   Another thing that struck  me,   and I   can   assure  you   that it  went home,   and   that  was when I  heard  the   mothers  proudly  telling  their children that 'this was the ship  our    country    has   given    to     the  British navy.'   As we steamed away  we  were  given an   example  of the  famous New  Zealand yell.     I   had  heard   it  before during   the war in  South   Africa,   and   it   does   seem  strange,   perhaps   I   ought  to   say  significant,   that I   should  hear   it  again from the deck of a battleship  which those people have presented  not alone for their own defence, but  for upholding -the honor' of Canada  and I -tbe- resf^efei'^our-" world-wide-  Empire."  During a severe electrical storm  this week at Winnipeg, eight elephants broke loose, and before they  had been subdued, the animals succeeded in wrecking half the tents  and doing other considerable dam  age to the circus property.  George Marr has struck some fine  ore on his claims, the Handy and  Hardscrabble, on McGuigan creek  near the point where the old K. & S.  trestle bridge stood; *  J. P. Keen is working several  miners at the Wonderful. Bunches  of fine galena are found in the  underground workings but the long  looked for ' *',bo.rikn^a" has not yet  been found. The'-'- present indications are however ver^-^favorable.  -^The placer fields of ^.British Col-  unfqia have yielded gold-to. the value  of'$7-2^8te,OQg, and many/have been  worke^^ortlys'^L,the'_rcj-d^e methods  of the individual placer miner, so  that there would appear to be rich  rewards awaiting the handling of old  placers by such highly developed  methods as dredging. Both the  Similkameen and Tulameen rivers  and many creeks offer a splendid  field for placer gold mining.  The British Columbia Copper  company are making arrangements  to develop motive power on Whip-  saw creek. They first staked water  for power and a few days ago they  made another application for permission to store 150,000,000 gallons  of. water. The point where .the dam  is to be placed is in the basin  bounded by the loop made by the  trans-provincial auto road a few  yards below where the creek is  crossed by the high bridge.  l *  Good progress is being made in  driving down the Dickson incline in  the Nickel Plate mine, and incidentally it may be interesting to know  that the pay values from it are always.; t^tronly *.-in evidence.. The  Nickel Plate mine has always been  noted as "the mine without dumps,"  and but for the amount of dead  work which  was unavoidable  when !  Number 4  Phoenix Defeats Mother Lode  Phoenix football team is in a fair  way to capture the cup offered for  competition by J. R. Jackson,  M.P.P., and emblematical of the  Boundary championship. At all  events that about sums up the  feeling among local football" critics  who claim to be conversant with  the form of the various teams comprising the league.  The  locals lined up in fine shape  at    Wednesday's   match,   and   although the  Mother   Lode  men  put  up a   good  exhibition   of combination    play,   their     forwards   failed  throughout to follow up the  advantages   which    their   fine   play   had  brought   about.;     In   other   words,  their play lacked finish.     Times out  of number they  had  the   leather in  place, only  to  have  it snapped up  by the home  backs and landed by a  long  shot  somewhere   about   mid-  field.    The first fifteen  minutes saw  perhaps the best play of the game,  neither'side being able to score until   a few  minutes   from   half-time,  when the visitors made   a quick advance   on   the  home   defence   with  the whole of their forwards handling  the  leather  between   them, but the  resultant shot was  cleverly  met by  Wilkinson   who'passed   to   his left  and  cleared the   danger.    Scarcely  thirty seconds elapsed   and the ball  was bouncing  in   front   of the visitors'   end,   but  Bray,   who   is   the  Mother   Lode    tower  of   strength,  sent it  spinning well away,   only to  have   it   returned   with   interest by  Davidson    on   a     pass   from   Jas.  Porter.  Some good, play in mid-field  marked the commencement of the  second half, with., successive long  shots taking '.it, to. both, .ends and  returning it to centre.' This play,  which lasted fully five minutes, was  followed  by  an  attack   by   Mother  Renovating: the Butte Hotel  Geo. Vichary and Angelo Luciani,  the proprietors of the Butte hotel,  are sparing no effort in making  their commodious and popular premises one of the best in the city.  In a few days, the work of renovation which has now been in pro?  gress for the past two weeks, will  have been completed. All of the  rooms, of .'Which there are about  thirty, have received attention, and  now a similar operation is going on  on the ground floor apartment.,  all of which are being laid with a  special linoleum. The hotel boasts  a thoroughly up-to-date steam heating system, and has'.-hot arid cold  water, both up and down stairs,  together-;with a very convenient and  comfortable "dry" for the benefit of  its mining patrons, situated in the  basement. A bar, with.a complete  stock of the "goods" always' on  hand, is run in connection with the  place. - v  .    ��� ;���_���  __   Another New Map  The Pioneer acknowledes the receipt of another advance copy of  a pre-emptor's map from the office  of the provincial surveyor-general'  G. H. Dawson. This latest issue  embraces the three land-recording  districts of Fort Fraser, Fort George  and the Peace river. A very useful index map of the whole province,  with the land-recording districts  outlined, is included in the publication, which is drawn to a scale of  three miles to the inch, and is  designated as the "Stuart ��� Lake  sheet."  Big Labor Day Celebration  ���The canvassing committee,  consisting of Jos.   Strutzel,   Geo. Ellis  and J.   McLaughlin,   who  were appointed at  the   public  meeting held  recently,   to consider  the practicability of holding a  Labor day celebration   in   Phoenix,   are  to report  the result of their efforts at another  public   meeting   to   be  held in  the  lodgeroom   of  the    Miners'   Union  hall on Sunday next.      Mr. Strutzel  states   that up to   Thursday,   from  local   sources  alone,    the   sum    of  $625 had  been  promised,   and that  in his  opinion there would  be little  difficulty  experienced  in   raising  a  sum of' between $1200 and $1300.  This, everyone will admit is a highly   gratifying    prospect    and  there  novv   remains   no   reason   why  this  town should   not be   the  scene of a  bu mper celebration  on Sept. 1.     It  is to   be hoped   that   now   that the  ball has been started rolling, that all  those interested, and it is difficult to  think of any not being so, will strain  a point to be  present at tomorrow  evening's meeting.  New Manager for Macy Cafe  W. S.   Macy,' leasee of the Granby hotel, paid a hurried visit to the  camp   this   week.      In   addition   to  his  interests  here,   Mr.   Macy   has  now  the   task   of  catering   to the  inner wants   of about  one thousand  of  the   Granby\ company's   Hidden  creek  employees, and   consequently  has been obliged to appoint a manager tor  his well-known   and highly- '  popular cafe and licensed establishment,   situated   on   Sprague avenue  Ore Tonnages 1ln  Spokane.

P. railroad is  ready to supply ore cars, which will  probably be next fall, the King Solomon mine will be ready to ship ore,  and Utah capitalists will commence  to realize on their investments. The  mine has been worked for a number  of years, and when it had reached a  stage of development which made it  attractive to capital, it Was picked  up by Utah investors. The mine is  situated eight miles from Duncan,  on Vancouver island, and though a  large amount of money has been expended in its development, the rural  settlers in the neighborhood are  hardly aware that there is such a  thing as a mine within miles of their  farms. A mining man of Vancouver, who recently wished to visit  the property, had a hard time in  Duncan finding anyone who could  direct him to the mine. ; The property is thoroughly equipped with  concentrating plant, and ore bunkers  are in course of construction, the  railroad grade passing directly by  the dump.  Copper Sold Well Ahead  According to a Boston report of  recent date, copper is very strong  at 15}�� to 15%"' cents per pound.  Further large sales have been made  and the surplus has been so reduced  that producers could readily mark  prices up one or two cents higher  if they were disposed to do so. So  far as can he learned,,all of the producing companies are sold well  ahead. Noth withstanding this,  there is good basis for the belief  that a number of the important consumers have not yet secured nearly  all the copper they will need in  September. Further heavy buying  is to" be expected in the very near  future. Copper shares are advancing in price, reflecting the steady  improvement in the metal situation.  solved   by McCoy,  who seemed   to  try and land the leather   somewhere  around   the    Brooklyn   hotel.     The  last   fifteen    minutes    proved   slow  and no  other goal was recorded un-  about five minutes  from   the finish,  when   the   opportunity   again  came  to   Davidson   after a   lively   scrim-  mage in the home quarters.  .A long  shot   had   brought   the   ball   to the  left of Bray, and   after three  of the  visitors   had unsuccessfully tried to  connect, the  situation was  grasped  by   the   homesters,     who   came   on  with a rush,  bowled   over Walters,  who pluckily   tried   to   check them,  but   a   quick  pass    from   Pritchard  to Davidson fooled them all, including   the    goal-keeper.        For   some  minutes   the visitors   continued   the  game   with   a   man   short,   but   no  other   goal   was   registered.       Tlie  final    score    was   2-0   in   favor   of  Phoenix.  DISTINCTIVE  are the feature of  Big Strides at Hidden Creek  As illustrating the tremendous  strides being made at the Hidden  creek mine, Page Boyles, whose  firm has the contracts for the whole  of the Granby company's diamond  drilling operations, recently stated  that even in the short space of three  or four weeks' absence, he found it  quite difficult to recognize some of  the spots around the vicinity ofthe  town and mine property. Mr.  Boyles regards the progress made  particularly during the past year as  extraordinary.

Admiral Henry Wratislaw died oo  August 1 at his home in England.  During the early pioneer days of  British Columbia he took part m.  several operations against the Indians.  The berry harvest on the coast  has been in full swing for the past  week, and hundreds ol Indians are  engaged from daylight to dark in  gathering the lucious backberry and  huckleberry crop.  While prospecting up the Ashnola  a few days ago, a man named Geo.  Allison, was shot in the foot by a  .45 revolver. He was returning the  weapon to the holster when it fell to  the ground and exploded.  An army of forty thousand men  are required from the east to handle  the crop in the prairie provinces  this year. It is estimated that this  number will be sufficient as there  are many more men out of work  than is usually the case.

DRAYING  Of all kinds promptly attended  to. Rapid Express and Baggage Transfer. Careful atten-  tipn to all orders.      Phone A65  James G. McKeown  The Two Editors  During the course of our editorial  career, we have subscribed towards  defraying  the   funeral  expenses   of  two men.      They were botheditors  and as far as vye were aware:neither  of  them  ever  made a   will.    They  were quite  young   when   the  great  overtaker   called around,  and both  of them died, what everybody calls  it,   a   natural  death,   although   we  had   it  from    the    surgeon in   the  case  of  one  of them .that   if the  brick had  diverted   a fraction of an  inch in   it's  flight,   he would   never  have  collected, as he did, his lodge  benefits   for  eight   \yeeks   after the  impact.    The   latter's editorial failing was truthfulness.     No one ever  saw a   lie in   his   newspaper.    Our  other    departed   colleague  was  of  quite another  stamp,  and althongh  his     indisposition    only   lasted     a  month,    there  are   persons   in   his  home   town     who   actually   regret  pulling  him   out   of a  horse pond  after he had  been submerged a full  ten   minutes.      His  speciality   was  prevarication..      He'd    lie   like    a  Portuguese.     He   used   to say, and  it   was   the'only   truthful   thing he  ever did   say,   that  there  were few  other  '  editors     built     like     him.  We heartily agreed with his statement, and in this  we were strongly  backed up  by   the pallbearers who  unanimously agreed  that Bill   must  have busted the  mould and cut off  the   species.      Their  existence,   or  rather their finish has ever been before us, and few will blame us if we  confess   thar.   more   than   us   have  found safety in following the maxim  of one who  had   his   troubles   and  advises, -'that when in doubt, always  tell the truth."

Pest of Wild Horses in North  According to a recent statement  by the Hon. Duncan Marshall, the  minister of agriculture for Alberta,  there is a regular pest of wild  horses in the Peace River district.  These horses are said to have been  abandoned by prospectors in the  Yukon rush of 1898. ;" They have  increased in great numbers very  rapidly and are travelling in bands.  The settlers complain that they are  destroying their crops, enticing  away the domestic mares and killing  the horses. Mr. Marshall says they  are of "no value as it is impossible to  domesticate them. He says that  while in Ottawa recently he talked  the matter over with Dr. Roche,  and no doubt some action towards  their extermination will be taken  by both governments.  The Trials That Beset Us  When one remembers, say's an  exchange, that in the ordinary  column of news matter, there are  ten thousand pieces of type, that  there are seven wrong positions  that each letter may be put in, and  70,000 chances io make errors, besides millions of chances for transpositions, he will not be too critical.  In the sentence "To be or nOt to  be," by transposition alone it. is  possible to make 2,759,022. So  you have some conception of the  perils that beset the printer.  W. Beggs, a 17-year old schoolboy in Winnipeg, cleared 5ft. A%  inches in a high jump, beating the  Manitoba champion.  Persons in Wales speaking the  Welsh language, as shown by a  census return, just published, numbered 92,737 males and 97,555  females in 1911, as against 137,333  males and 143,572-females in 1901,  a fall of from 151 to 85 per 1000 of  the population in ten years.

The Delicacy ofthe Summer Season -  FAMOUS CURLEW ICE CREASV.--TRY ONE  KNOB HILL AVENUE  The  greatest   of  statesmen   occasionally make a mistake.     It was  so with Mr.   Gladstone, who waxed  exceedingly wrathful  over the very  idea of the  British government purchasing for  twenty   million  dollars,  a   controlling   interest   in the   Suez  canal.      He   was   so   sure   of   his  ground that   he   told   tr/e  House of  Commons   that   they  might just as  well have   pitched   thc   money   into  the   Red   sea.     But   every    British  school boy  knows now  how far the  tlie Right   Hon.   gentleman was  off  his bat.      Our very own Sir Wilfrid  is another   case  in  point.     He had  no faith in   the future destiny of the  prairies.     Like  a few  others  of his  kidney   he    looked   upon   the   west  Canadian stretches  as   fit Only as a.  hunting   ground    for    the   Indians.  The towns  which  Sir Charles Tup-  per painted   as  springing   up along  the line of the then projected Canadian Pacific railway, were/according  to the "far-sighted" Laurier, only a  a fantasy,   a dream   of the speculator.     But   like   Mr.   Gladstone  and  his Suez canal agument, Sir Wilfrid  was   also   wrong, and   the. railroad  which   he   so   strenuously   opposed  was the direct means  of making the  Dominion what she is at the present  day.  Perhaps    among   the    many,    or  even prepared to dupilicate the gift  by providing the money for another  one. There were ; no bickerings as  to where the money was to be spent,  or whether'"the" ship was to be  built in: England, Scotland or  the Netherlands, as was unfortunately the case here. Neither were  there ai,y strings attached as to the  vessel's status in: the event of war,  the same as Sir Wilfrid placed on  his own tin-pot squadron, which by  the by could be converted into submarine boats by the New Zealand  in the time that its chaplain takes to  say half the Lord's Prayer. Little  New Zealand's battle-cruiser is what  her people intended she should be,'  an active and untrainmeled unit of  the British navy. She can do something more than catch fish poachers.  -;:     SECRETS OF MOME LBFE  Statements made by patients taking the New Method Treatment   They bow H Cores  GST* No Names or Testimonials used without written consent  The  attempt  now being made to  test   the law   regarding  entry  into  Canada by four Hindus, proves that  nothing  short of the   utmost   vigilance o.n   the part  of   the people of  this province   will   prevent   it  being  over-run by an Asiatic horde.     Unlike   Australia,   which    has   set   its  lace   against   the   entry   under any  circumstances of the Oriental, Canada by her regulations   is only playing with the question.       Tbe law.at  present demands that an immigrant  must  come   direct from   his  native  land, but  this is a slender string for  British   Columbians  to   hang   their  fate on, and very soon we shall hear  of chartered  steamers   leaving Calcutta direct  for Victoria.      Canada  should emulate  the  example set by  Australia and flatly refuse to allow  the unwashed horde  in   the country  under any conditions whatever.

The marquis, who succeeded  to    the   command    of   the    British  of sentences by the accused had so  little an effect on Joseph that he  voted against the white-washing  resolution of the government, and  in consequence of this he is to be disowned by his party.  D. L,  forces in Canada   after   the death of  Wolfe,    wrote    to    George    IV   asj      According  to   a   census   bulletin,  follows: I recently   issued   by    the    Dominion  "Oue cannot take into contempla-l authorities, 10 persons  out of every  tion to any prodigious extent, the  state, nature and climate of the  American continent, without high  prospects in favor of the power to  which it belongs. It is sufficient  to be the granary of the rest of the  British dominions."  The current issue of the Chesaw  News yives an account of a number  of immigrants from eastern Oregon  who recently arrived at that town  en route for Canada. According to  our contemporary these people were  detained some considerable time  waiting for the customary inspection  of their horses, "but when it came  to signing the necessary declaration  of intentions, etc., they got cold  feet and turned tlieir schooners  southward. They were so homesick, etc."  One scarcely knows whether to  take the News seriously as to the  reasons given for the Orcgonians  decision not to enter Canada, and  I while we regret the reasons that  influenced them, oi\e cannot but admire them for acting up to a conscientious principle. Canadians all  over the west will think more favorably of them for the way they have  acted, than il they had entered  this country,'subscribed to our simple oath of allegiance, and then  turned round and vilified, as many  have done, the connection between  this Dominion and the mother land  I  hundred of the Canadian born,  were unable to read the ballot  paper; of the foreign-born nearly  seventeen per cent show a similar  deficiency; of the British immigrants,  including born in the United Kingdom and possessions, only three in  every hundred are so situated.

I  'B'L^&T-E-'R^;,'  It is to be hoped that the visit  to Canada of the "gift ship," New  Zealand, which the dominion of that  name presented to the British navy,  will do something towards keeping  alive in the minds ol all Canadians,  the discreditable action ol' the Canadian Senate in turning down the  naval aid Hill.

New Placer Mining- Invention  About   the   time   the   high-water  stage of the   Fraser  was   reached,  says a despatch   to  the Vancouver  Sun, a dredge was finished in   New  Westminster which is the  invention  of J.   R'ochford, a placer   miner   of  forty-eight   years'  experience,   and  which is   expected   to   revolutionize  the dredging business in British Columbia, not bniy  for  gold, but also  for sand and gravel.     In principle it  works exactly opposite from the old  types, the dredging  buckets   dragging  the   material  from  below instead of scooping it up and carrying  it to the surface of the barge, thence  to be run into sluice buckets.  There  is   a   two-inch   space   under   each  bucket, and riffles of amalgam plates  may be arranged in the run-way beneath the buckets, converting it into  a sluice box, saving the gold   below  the water.     In the old dredges the  sluice boxes had to be   built on  the  deck   of   the    dredge,    and    water  Dated thih 201 h day of June, A.D. 11)13.  D. J. MATHESON, Agent.

Black Has Ford Agency  E. A. Black has just received a  wire from the Ford factory, giving  him the agency for the well-known  Ford cars, one Runabout and the  other a Touring car will arrive about  the 20th of this month. The new  prices in effect from Aug. 1st, are  $735 for the Runabout, and $785 for  the five passenger car laid down in  PhOenix.  "If the government,printing office  had a competitor, the country would  probably be pestered from Podunk  to Poduka with persistent rumors to  the effect that on certain days, or  in certain localities, two cent postage stamps would be sold for ninety  cents a hundred.  This must be so, as scarcely a  day passes without us being asked  when we are going to sell three  Fords for a thousand dollars, or one  for. $350, or when the Standard Oil  company is going to give a Ford  with every purchase of a carload of  gasoline.  At some drugstores you can buy  thirteen stamps for a cent and a  quarter, providingyou have twenty-  six cents, but you can't buy a new  Ford for less than its regularly  published price, in joplin and Jerusalem, so kill that rumor wherever  you meet'it.  We cannot begin to make enough  cars to supply all who are anxious  to get them at the regular price.  Broad-guaged business principles  have been responsible for the wonderful growth  of the Ford business.  g  The Original Violet  Glycerine Soap  Soap  TRANSPARENT ANP GREEN  with the real fragrance  of Violets. .

On Tuesday, in addition to the ordin-  dinary entertainment, a feature of the  evening was a huckleberry pie-eating  contest, the premier prize for which  was awarded to Emil Almstrom, who  in consequence of his extraordinary  ability in putting out of sight a huge  confection, will be granted free admission to all performances for the  next thirty days. Dooley Deane, who  half way through seemed to be the  favorite, fell off towards the end, but  managed to win second place. His  brother, Danny, was a good third.  It is to be no exception next Wednesday, on which date the above  event has been arranged to take  place. The popular Ironsides orchestra has been engaged for the  occasion; and the committee assure  us that as far as they are concerned,  no. effort will be spared to repeat  this year the success of former  dances promoted for the same laudable purpose.  /" ���. .___^���'���  ->  ".  PUBLIC NOTICE  No Occasion For Anger  An apparently inspired article in  the Westminster Gazette, no doubt  prompted by the caustic comment of  the U.S. press on Great Britain's  refusal to take part in the Panama-  Pacific exposition, appeared on Saturday last. In effect the article repudiates the suggestion that Britain  is influenced by pique on account  of the Panama canal tolls controversy. "We do not mix up our  diplomatic negotiations and our  business in the way suggested,"  says the article. "Americans may  be easy in their minds that our refusal has no other reason behind it  than those of expense and the impossibility of getting together a  worthy collection at a place so distant as San Francisco." The Pall  Mail Gazette says there is no occasion for an  "explosion of temper."
