The city  has a population of 1,500,  and possesses first-class  hotels, opera house, schools  FIFTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, AUG. 23,  1913  Scientists Visit Camp  Phoenix was included among the  very fortunate   towns   to   receive a  visit    from   that    highly   scientific  body,  the   International Geological  congress, which   recently concluded  its session ar/Toronto.    On Thursday, about noon, that portion of its  membership which had decided to  study the  geology  of this province  and a portion of the Yukon, arrived  in this  city and   spent  some  hours  examining the  immense low-grade  copper   deposits    of   this   locality.  Among the visitors were the   representatives of at least ten European  nations, in addition to those  of this  country,    the   United   States   and  Japan, although while   iii session at  Toronto, there were representatives  of 28 nations in conference.  The  special train   conveying the  delegates,    arrived    in   this   camp  a little   before   one o'clock,   and all  disembarked at   the. Rawhide mine,  afterwards making their way on foot  over the  hill,   via   the   Grey   Eagle  claim to the west side of the "glory  hole"   of the Granby   mine.     Here  the  attention  of the  scientists was  taken   up  for  some  time  and   the  party divided  into   two groups, one  of which entered the mine, and were  conducted    over   the   tunnels   and  slopes by the assistant-supt., C. M.  Campbell, and  others  of the company's staff.   The remainder elected  to   make   an   examination   of   the  geology from   the   surface   and.extended   their   inspection   to   the adjoining claims   of the   B. C.   Copper  company!   '-e.,     the   Brooklyn   and  ' Stemwinder/ ' mines.     * Lunch    was  served   in   the   dining   room   of the  Granby  hotel,   and   at   five o'clock  a number  of the  geologists   left on  their special   for  Greenwood, where  a   visit' tb"*tfie B. C.   Copper   company's smelter was included in their  itinerary.      The  others, with  O. E.  Le Roy of the Dominion Geological  Survey,   who, is - in   charge   of the  B. C.   section,   made their   way   to  Greenwood   on   foot and  made  an  examination   of  the  structure   and  mineral constitution   of that portion  of the camp en route.  While, the gentlemen of the party  were pursuing their investigations,  the ladies of the party were the  guests-of Mrs. C. M. Campbell, at  her residence near the Snowshoe  mine, and afterwards made the trip  to Greedwood in rigs. Among the  ladies invited to meet the visitors,  were Mesdames Munro, Sweetser,  Miller, Strutzel, Ritchie, Mulligan,  Carson and the Misses Kelling  and Swanson.   �� .

More Motor Cars For Phoenix  Ed.   A.   Black,  who recently  received the  Ford  automobile agency  for   the   Boundary   district,   was in  receipt of  his first   consignment of  cars   on   Thursday.    The shipment  consisted of two   autos,  one a four-  passenger,   and   the   other  a   runabout designed to carry two.      The  driving power of either is the same,  twenty   horsepower,   and  each   are  guaranteed  to be  able to negotiate  any and   all   of  the  roads found in  this   district.   They   were  both   in  commission a very   short time after  delivery, and allowing for everything  in the   way  of newness, seemed to  be able to meet the requirements of  the steep roads of this locality.  Geo.  Vichary,   proprietor   of   the   Butte  hotel, is   the purchaser of the four-  passenger, while it is rumored there  are several applicants for the ownership of-the other.  Mine Inspector in Buggy Mishap  While    driving    from   the   Silvc.r  King mine   to   Nelson, a _few   day>  ago,     a     team    driyen   by   James  McGregor,    government   mine   inspector,    took   fright   and   bolted.  Robert   Graham,   another   government,official,   who   was   in   the rig,-  made a   timely jump from'the vehi  cle, but- Mr.   McGregor,   who   was  occupied     in     trying    to   keep   the  horses   under   dbntrol,   was thrown  and 'sustained   injuries  to his ankle  and foot that will confine him to his  residence   for the   next   four or five  weeks.  Acting upon certain  information,  Police  Constable' Stanfield   of   the  Provincial    police,    went   down    to  Grand Forks on Thursday, where a  report was current to the effect that  a   death   had   taken   place   in    the  Doukhobor settlement,  and the remains interred without the formality,  required   by   law,   of procuring the  necessary  permit   from   the  proper  authority.      The grave having been  located,  permission to, exhume the  body   was secured,   and   the gruesome   operation   carried  out  in the  afternoon.    The   same  day,  a coroners'  jury   was   empannelled,  and  after  the viewing   of the   body   an  adjournment  was  taken until Monday, When  a verdict/guided  by the  result   of a   post   mortem  examination, was returned  to the effect that  the woman had died from an attack  of   pneumonia,   accelerated   by   insufficient  skilful  attention.     In addition to the verdict, the jury added  a rider,   "that a  medical inspection  of   the  entire , Doukhobor   colony  should   be   carried   out   once  every  month."    A vigorous prosecution of  all offenders is  now confidently predicted.  An alarming  sequel to the above,  says   our- Grand   Forks   coirespbn  dent,   occurred   on   Monday, ,whe  the   nonsense written   by irresponsible   sentimentalists   concerning   the  so-called  angelic  disposition   of the  Doukhobor,   was   rudely   dispelled.;  whose testimony as  a witness, was  regarded  as absolutely indispensable.    The party  had arrived  on the  ranch  and  were approaching  their  man,   when,  without   the  slightest  warning, the   women of the colony,  to the number of about eighty, left  their   work   in the   fields   and  surrounded   the  police   officials, striking  them   with   their potato   hoes,  pitchforks and even fenceposts. The  fury  of the   women   was indescribable and  but for the   fact that both  of the  officers  are  cool-headed and  powerful men, the affair might have  had  a  miich more  serious ending.  At times the officars were unable  to  see, owing to some of the Amazons  blindfolding  them.    This  appeared  to be one  of their  favorite  tactics,  and   it   was  upon   such   occasions  when   the   officers'   vision   was  ob-  structed, that the rain   of blows and  punches were the heaviest and most  severe.      Only    one    man   of   the  Douks  took an active   part   in the  melee,   the   male   members   of   the  colony  to  the   number   of fifty  or  sixty    standing    a   short   distance  away,   cheering,   shouting and   encouraging the infuriated viragos   to  further deeds  of unlawful  violence  i  New Grocery Store Opens  To keep abreast of the times,  and to show that the spirit of en^  terprize is still alive in our ci  Messrs. Chas. McKay and C  H. Knight have opened up a^  retail grocery and provision m  on Knob Hill avenue. Both  new proprietors are well kno  Phoenix, Mr. McKay having  actively connected with the dairying  firm of McKay and Sons since the  inception of that firm six years ago.  Mr. Knight has already a thorough  knowledge of the business he has  embarked in, having acquired considerable experience in England as  well as a knowledge of local wants  gained as an employee of some  years' standing with the Morrin-  Thompson company of this town.  The new firm has made arrangements with the principal wholesale  houses on the coast for a continuous  supply of only high-class stock. The  store was opened yesterday with a  very choice selection of goods, and  if the amount of business done is  any criterion of the future, the  ultimate success of this young firm  is well assured. Their motto is  "Purity and Efficiency;" McKay  and Knight will make daily deliveries  on    all   orders   entrusted   to  them.  ���. ��� _ .*.

Constable S^'nnefa heard him from  some blocks away,  to sundry war whoops  rwisa conducting himself in  a manner distinctly unbecoming and  quite unworthy of a gentleman from  Eholt. In answer to enquiries by  the court as to the why and wherefore of his demonstration, he meekly  informed the presence that he only  intended to honor the town with a  few hours' visit. He had arrived  for the sole purpose, of depositing  money in the bank. He was then  ordered to make a further deposit  of 20 plunks or go to the bastille  for thirty days. Mr. Caffo promptly paid the required ransom.  Two residents of Eholt figured in  the  Greenwood   police   court   this  week.  One was Jean Voisin, a shoemaker.    Jean is on the list of those  to   whom  the   smell   of an  empty  rum    bottle    is   considered   highly  dangerous.     He is an interdict, and  was charged   with   being under the  influence of something more potent  than   the  smell, while  still   on  the  rolls.      W.   Wood,  who   presided,  fined  him   twenty   dollars   and the  costs of the court.  The other erring  one  was   Alex.

They were much superior  in fighting ability to the average  London dock laborer.  The facts are as follows: In the  course of gathering evidence to  assist them in prosecuting the  case, Constable Stanfield, accompanied by Ab.

Their intention  was   to   bring    in    a  certain   man,  The attack was a positive surprise  to, the officers, and indeed is the  sensation of the hour here, where  all have been led to believe that the  Doukhobor religion forbids even  such a thing as the killing of a  worm.

Employe  All efforts to locate the relatives  of the late Al. Nelson, the Great  Northern bridge carpenter, who  met his death on Friday of last  week, in an accident while at work  on the big local trestle bridge, have  proved unavailing. All that can be  learned -of him is that his father  -was a resident of Knox, North  Dakota, where he died a few years  ago. Another clue followed with  poor result was that' of a returned  letter, addressed to the deceased's  sister, Mrs. Pete Tilden, at Ross  creek, near Edmonton. The deferred funeral took place on Tuesday, from the local undertaking  parlor, a number of the unfortunate  man's fellow employees following  the casket to the cemetery. Owing  to a regretable misunderstanding,  no ninister was present at the interment, but R. K. McCammon of the  Presbyterian church management  board, reverently conducted a short  service at the graveside.  Card of Thanks  Through the medium of the  Pioneer, I wish to express on behalf of my wife and self, our gratitude and thanks to the many friends  for their kind sympathy expressed  in so many ways on the occasion of  the death of our infant daughter.

Phoenix Still Has Cup In Sight  After a stubborn ninety minutes'  play, at Greenwood, on Wednesday,  the opposing teams, representing  this city and Greenwood, were obliged to call the game a drawn  battle. In spite of every effort,  which included some fine play,  neither team were able to score a  single goal. The local fans are  now more confident than ever of  the Jackson cup coming to Phoenix,  and taking into account the splendid  form shown by the local eleven  in the other matches, it must be  admitted that they have something  on which to base their expectations.

Searching: for Oil and Minerals  Edmonton, Aug-. 22.���Roused by  discoveries ot rich undeveloped  mineral, asphalt, gas and oil resources in various parts of the  western provinces, scores of prospectors and experts known in many  camps throughout the United  States, Canada and Mexico, are  making exhaustive searches in the  Peace River country and other northern districts. Central and Southern Alberta are also being prospected as never before.  The Dominion and Provincial  governments have their experts in  the field, and even some of the  northern Indians and half-breeds,  who usually confine their operations  to trapping furs, which is no mean  industry when it is recalled that  pure black fox whelps bring as high  as $10,000 a pair in this and outside  markets, are out with the drill and  prospecting pan, exploring the canyons and river beds.  Thousands  of tons of provisions  and    supplies,     including   mining,  drilling-  and   sawmill   outfits,   have  been shipped from Edmonton to the  outposts   of civilization   during   the  last   ninety days,   and   much   more  equipment will go   forward by river  scows  and   pack   trains   before the  close   of   the    season.      Seventeen  parties are prospecting in the Canadian   Rockies,   west  of  Edmonton,  but most of the work  at present is  being   carried   on   in   the    northern  territory.  William Gordon, a pioneer of the  Fort McMurray district, said in  Edmonton recently, that prominent  English and American financial  houses are backing several of the j  prospecting parties.

The fourth cruiser squadron is  to take up its station at Bermuda  about September 1st.  The mayor of Calgary has re���  ceived two unsolicited offers to loan  money to that city. One tender of  a million dollars came from .England, while another tender for a  similar ��� amount came from New  York.  Hon. Sam Hughes, the Dominion  minister of defence, has notified  Lieut.-Colonel Leckie of the 72nd.  Vancouver Highlanders, of his appointment as one "of the party of  officers who are to witness the  autumn manoeuvres of the British  army under the command of Field-  Marshal Lord Kitchener.  Sidney Billingham, the well-  known Vancouver newspaperman,  has , been commissioned by the  Saturday Sunset to make a tour of  the northern interior of the province  from Prince Rupert along the line  of the G.T.P., with the object of recording his impressions in a number  of articles to appear in the above-  mentioned paper.  Before sailing for  Canada, a few  days  ago,    Sir   Edmund    Walker,  president of the   Canadian   Bank of  Commerce,   said   that the financial  position  generally   was   easier, and  there   was   a growing   renewal   of|  confidence in Canadian investments.  Sir John   Courtis and   others, who  desire to encourage   the investment  of Welsh   capital, in the Dominion,  were also among the passengers on  the Royal George.  T. W. Sheffield, formerly indus-  ' trial commissioner at Regina, is  formulating a scheme by which harvesters for the Canadian west could  be brought out from Great Britain.  The scheme is to have the provincial  government bring the men out under its own supervision, paying  their transportation and making the  farmer who employs a man, responsible for repaying his fare to the  government. Their term in Canada would be four months.  William James Brown, an immigrant from the old country, arrived  a few days ago at Montreal, on his  way to Alberta to make the acquaintance of his father, whom he has  never seen. Bill, who is just a few  days over three months' old, lost  his mother the day he was ushered  into the world, and is the youngest  immigrant to cross the Atlantic to  Canada unattended. He was a  great favorite among the lady passengers and nurses on the Allan  liner, Corsican.  A statistical report issued by the  Dominion Immigration department,  gives some interesting figures as to  the nationality and distribution of  the 2,521,144 immigrants who have  come to Canada during the thirteen fiscal years ending with March  31. Eastern Canada got nearly  half, or 1,110,461 of these, as compared with 1,410,683, who went to  the prairie provinces and to British  Columbia. Ontario took the biggest  share, the total reported as settling  in that province being 626,924.  COLORATION OF THE CITY OF PHOENIX, EC.

I'   I   ^ < ������  More Buffalo Herds Found  Three distinct herds of wild buffalo have been  located west of the  Slave river, on the extreme northern  boundary  of Alberta,   says an Edmonton correspondent.      The herds  were  located by  a party  of timber  cruisers under the direction of A. J.  Bell,    government    agent  at   Fort  Smith,   sent   out by  the  Dominion  Forestry department.    Pierre Squirrel,   chief   of  a  tribe  of Northern  Indians, who was  the guide to the  party, estimates there are fully 200  animals in  the  herds.    The buffalo  resemble the American bison, from  which   they  descended,   but life in  the   hilly  regions  has"   made   them  more agile and fleeter of foot.  They  travel   in   twos   and   threes  In   the  summer,   herding  together   in    the  winter  for protection  against   their  natural enemy, the timber wolf.     It  is announced here that the govern  ment will   take immediate steps  to  prevent   the   extermination   of   the  herds by hunters and further protect  the animals  by  increasing  the wolf  bounty.     Harry V. Radford, e.n explorer,   discovered   another  herd in  the north two years ago.  U.S. Judge Compliments B.C.  "History does not tell of a better  investment than you 400,000 people  of British Columbih have made by  spending sixteen million dollars in  three years on the roads of your  province," said Judge J. T. Ronald  of Seattle the other day in an address to the Vancouver Progress  club.  Previously, says the Vancouver  World, the visitor had kept his  audience interested in figures dealing with construction and value of  good roads. To emphasize the  value and importance of good roads  he said that in the United States  certain counties selected at random  had lost a population of 73,000 because of the lack of good roads,  and that others in which good roads  had been constructed had gained a  population of 738,000.  Judge Ronald   quoted  figures to  prove his contention that good roads  were essential to a country's pros  perity, and he  quoted more figures  to show  that   bad   roads   caused a  tremendous annual loss.     He spoke  too, and feelingly,  of the good relations   always    exisitent   between  the people of this province and their  friends in the State of Washington.  '���If I   had  all  the* money lost in  the United States each year for ten  years  because  of bad   roads," said  the judge,   "I could  pay off the interest on the national debt, build a  Panama canal,  build three magnificent roads, east and west across the  continent,    do    much   other   good  work   and  still  have $100,000,000  left."  Someone  laughed  in  doubt,  but  the judge followed up his statement  with figures and easily demonstrated  the truth of this argument.  In substantiating the statement,  the speaker stated that the average  cost per ton per mile, of hauling  farm produce an average distance  of nine, miles to a railway depot  over- poor roads in the United States  is $2.07. This computed from figures collected over a period of ten  years by the United States Bureau  of Good Roads, figures out at 23  cents per ton per mile. The loss on  bad roads, says the judge, is $1.55  per ton   for every ton  hauled in the  last ten years over bad roads.   ��   Owing to the surplus of bartenders in Vancouver, no more  licenses for that profession are to  be granted for some time.

The Delicacy of the Summer Season���  FAMOUS CURLEW ICE CREAM-TRY OWE  British Columbia's Problems  Geographically as well as politically the province of British Columbia occupies about the same relation to its federal government as  does the state of California to  Washington. Its problems are identical with those of California and  as in the case of that State, its attempts to legislate for its own  happiness and ultimate safety have  all been cold-shouldered and turned  down. The tide, however, so long  against the people of the Pacific  coast, now" shows unmistakable  signs of turning. California, back  ed by its central government, has  struck the first blow. It is now the  turn of British Columbia, or rather  Canada. Hitherto we have had no  support from the people of the  Eastern" provinces, but we are glad  to learn, thanks to our friends on  the other side, that the vital question of the day in this province has  actually been included in the subjects  under discussion in the cabinet  council room at Otttawa. According to the Ottawa Citizen, which  is particularly well informed, "British Columbia and its problems are  giving Ottawa considerable trouble  and not a little anxiety these days.  "The strike of the coal miners  engaged the best attention of the  department of labor all summer,  and made necessary or desirable  a trip to the coast and the scene of  the trouble by the Hon. - T. W.  Crothers.  "Three weeks ago the arrival at  the coast of Japanese junks, with  Japanese who were intent upon  evading the immigration laws, gave  rise to considerable concern, which  has been accentuated in no small  degree by the apparently accurate  report that two Japanese officials,  as envoys of the mikado's government, are now on the coast studying  conditions and taking into account  British Columbia sentiment with  regard to the Asiatic, immigration  "The Oriental problem presents  itself into an equally important and  scarcely less disturbing light, with  the action of the Hindus of British  Columbia who are preparing to  drive a coach and six through the  immigration laws by chartering a  direct steamship service.  "The latter phase of the Asiatic  question is now engaging the close  attention of the government, and  taken altogether, the Dominion  government is giving closer attention at present to the Pacific coast  and its many problems than ever in  the past."  dozen others of his clan and deport  them to the  land from whence they  came���Russia.      They are not British subjects.    Since coming to Canada   they    have   acted    the    part  of spoiled   children,   and   in   this it  must be  admitted  they  have  been  abetted  by  the  successive  Laurier  administrations,    which   for   years  past    have  deliberately   winked   at  their  wholesale   infractions  of the  law   while they   were  domiciled   in  the Northwest.     One   objection  to  deportation, we  understand, lies in  the fact that the law at present does  not  permit  of a   person   being   expelled from Canada who has resided  in the country for two years.     But  as we   have  a   parliament, there  is  such a thing  as   amending   the law  to suit  the   exigencies   of the case.  Our  contemporary  also  says   that  the jails   of   this   province   would  be insufficient to accommodate the  thousands of martyrs.    This  is  unfortunately too true.      But if deportation   in   lieu   of   imprisonment  is  adopted,   the   number of  "Douks"  looking for a martyr's crown will be  reduced to a minimum.

Permits for Itinerant Pedlars  Phoenix and other Boundary cities  might with  advantage   take  a leaf  from Cranbrook's  book  in the matter of exercising some control over  the many itinerant peddlars (beggars  woutd be a more correct definition),  that regularly make this part of the  country a  scene for their activities.  There  can   be   no  doubt  but   that  many of this   class of visitors are in  the   highest    degree   deserving   of  more   than  passing   sympathy,   but  on the  other hand,  quite a percentage among  those   that   have come  under our observation require some  investigation   on    the   part   of the  police.     The   authorities    of   Cranbrook  recognise this,   and  protects  its   citizens from   imposition  by "requiring   all   beggars   to   furnish  an I  account   of themselves   to   the chief'  of police, who;   if he   considers the  case  bona   fide,   is  empowered   to  grant  the.1 mendicant  a   permit   to  canvas the city.

Liberal   organs,   (it   was  a Liberal  government  that brought them in),  profess   to  see  in   the   "Douks" a  serious problem for the government  to solve.     One contemporary suggests that   "Czar Peter"  should be  allowed  a  close   acquaintance with  the   inside  working of a  Canadian  jail.     But why should the taxpayers  of this  province   be   burdened with  the   continuous  upkeep  of a string  of recalcitrant Doukhobors, for this  much is  certain, Peter  the Great of  Doukhobordom will   not be alone in  jail.

This is almost as good as  the     reply     of    Ambassador   Jos.  Choate,   the   American    representative   to    England,    who    on    being  asked what   position  he would   like  to occupy   if he   had   his   life   to go  over again,   replied that no position  would  suit   him so   well   as that of  being his wife's second husband.
