POST OFFICE STORE  &  i Hiter-Wri Co.i  Coke lias been steadily arriving at  tlie Granby smelter for the last two  weeks, in greater or less quantities, and  it is now the intention to resume operations at the reduction works next  Monday, regular shipments of ore being started fiom the mines about the  same tiifie/ On Thursday of this week  oie crushing was begun once more at  the smelter, and a touple of train loads  of ore were sent down to the smelter,  that were particularly desired. The  mine fcrce was increased to some extent last Wednesday, and by early next  week theie will be still further additions.  At first it is probable that  but  two  furnaces will be blown in at the smelter, the others to be placed in operation  when the  coke supply  is sufficiently  large to warrant it being done.    Assistant Manager Flumerfelt and  Superintendent Hodges returned Saturday|from  a trip to the East Kootenay coal fields,  to ascertain exactly what the situation  is in regard to future snpplies of coke.  It was learned that the present  combined output of the ovens over there  is about 200 tons of coke  per day,  which will be divided among the Boundary smelters.   As somewhere between  300 and 400 tons is required daily for  Boundary smelters, this supply  does  not yet fill the requirements.*"   However, it is fully expected,  from repre  sentations made, that this 200 ton rate  will be increased at an early  date,   so  that all of the seven furnaces in Boundary smelters can be put in operation  before long.  During the suspension of operations  at the Granby smelter a small force has  been busy in making repairs that are  always more or less needed. At the  company's mines, while some work  has been going on, many repairs have  also been made, that it would not be  possible to go on with whije the: properties were in full operation, such as  relining shafts, straightening tracks,etc.  tory the party will work-well together!  In Vancouver' we have'never had  triction of any kind ever provincial  affairs and when we^supparted ,the  Semlin candidates, ameng whom was  Mr, Cotton, it wqs dorie by agreement  as a liberal movemerft.. There has  been, howevays6me disagreement relative to Dominion politics." " "'" -  In speaking, of the unfortunate post  tion of a government for which no.party  was held responsible, hejsaid:  "The government started in with  nominal majority of eigjit or (en, but  without any actual 'majority, for ' every  one was looking out for his own district and, in some catei, for himself;  The provincial indebtedness was increased by a coup.le of fjiillions ,and at  the end of two years nol even a nominal majority was left" ,  This, he thinks Will riot be-the case  with party control, for���thenGa" man  must do as.0 his patty, inst'rucis and  there will be little nse-for independents,  Mr. Martin declines to ek|ireuAn ��l)m*  ion as to when therej would be an  election, but statedjthat-so faV as he  could ascertain throughout trief entire  province, the feeling was entirely  favor of party lines.

'  It is stated, that negotiations have  been completed between the Centre  Star and War Eagle niirie of Rossland  and the Trail smelter, by which a large  tonnage of ore will (be handled from  the mines mentioned, tri$initial shipment of which was made this week.  It is Riven out that the��e two properties  will make heavier shipments than evei  before in their history.-..  HAVE TWO  WIRE TRAMS  Porter Bros.

Next Wednesday it is expected that  the Mother Lode smelter will be blown  in with one furnace, the othet to be  started in a few days thereafter. Since  the smelter was blown but, some weeks  ago, a small force has been busy at the  Mother Lode mine, the minimum being  15 men. This week the number was  increased' to about 50, and next Monday the first shipments of ore for nearly two months will be made to the  company's smelter. After that the  force of men will be gradually increased till the old number are on the payrolls.  COL. PRIOR IS THE MAN.  Josepb Martin Taluks be Will Be Use Next  Premier.  Probably no man in the province of  British Columbia has a better idea of  our politics than Joseph Martin. While  he may not always know exactly which  way the political cat will jump, he is  generally right there when the aforesaid  feline lights. He was interviewed last  Sunday night, after coming from church,  by the Vancouver Ledger as follows:  "I expect from reports that I have  heard, but not from direct statements  to myself, that soon after Mr. Duns-  muir's return he will resign the premiership .md that Col. Prior will step  into his place. In case this is done I  do not know what the result will be.  [consider Col-Prior as, perhaps, the  best choice that could be made by the  present government to succeed Mr.  Dunsmuir. ..  "I do hot care to state whether or  not I will support the present government when they next. meet. I do expect the nr.xt provincial government  election to be held on party lines and  I expect and will receive loyal support  from the liberals through the province  as their choice for leader. Except  for a number of malcontents in Vic-  Porter Bros., the contractors, an  evidently making a success of the con  tract which theyLrecently undertook  for the Granby Co., for the stripping  of the surface of part of the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill claims. One good  sized section has been completed, abou"  200 feet wide, and the main.or upper  tower has been dismantled and anothei  and higher tower erected a little farthei  up the hill, the terminal tower still be  ing in use.  In addition to. thisranother set pt  these huge tripods has been; built still  farther up the hill, to strip a piece o(  ground adjoining the maui glory hoK,  which Superintendent Williams desires  to get in shape for stoping before the  bad weather sets in.- The heavy cable  for this second tramway runs directly  across the glory hole, the waste being  dumped off to one side of the ore body.  Once again the great practicability ol  this system of stripping is illustrated,  as it would be exceedingly expensive  fp do this stripping in any other manner, and deposit the waste where it will  be out of the way.  Porter Bros. nowhave35 or 40 men  at work on the stripping contracts,  which are being successfully carried  out. The scales carrying the debris  go down the trams by gravity and  dumped, and are brought back by pow  er from an upright steam engine, lo  cated at the rear of the main tower.  ��� Within the last three months readers  of the Pioneer ore table have noticed  that shipments of ore have been regularly sent out from'the Emma mine, in  Summitca,inp, a projjgrty that is owned  by McKenzie & ijarin arid  \V." T.  Smith, one of the Boundary's old timers.    Upwards of a thousand  tons of  ore have thus far,been sent to, the Hall  Mines smelter, at Nelson,  where the  ore, carrying much iron, is used as a  flux, although it also contains  some  copper and gold values.    The work is  under the  immediate  charge of Mr.  .Smith himself, and the C." P.  R.  has  put in a sidetrack from   the   Phoenix  branch to accommodate the shippers.  Now, however, it appears  that th(  mine is to be further developed,  as' a  small power plant has  recently  been  installed there.    It consists of a 35  horse power locomotive boiler, one 6x  8 Bacon hoist and three machine drills,  the latter to be operated by steam  In the early days of the property;  when McKenzie & Mann acquired their  interest at the same time they bought  into the Brooklyn group in Phoenix  camp, a shaft was sunk on the property  for a distance of 100 feet, with about  25 feet of crosscutting, showing u|  some good ore. No further work was  done, and for years the mine was allowed to lie idlt...-  "Something over a year ago some 65 c  tons of ore were shipped from the  Emma to the Boundary Falls smelter,  coming from an open quarry or glbr)  hole that had been opened on the property. This was when Andrew Laidlaw  was the presiding genius at that smelter which never blew in under his man  agtment, and which was finally sold  to the Sunset mine people, and latei  started operations.  The shipments of late have also been  from surface workings, and evident!)  have given satisfaction in the results,  as more;extensive work is being undertaken, and the force at the mine increased. It is stated that a drift is to  be run from the shaft to the ore shoot:  The Emma is located about two  and a half miles from Eholt, the B.C.  spur running across the ground, so that  loading on the cars is an inexpensive  matter.  Assistant Manager Galer, of the  Granby smelter, was in the city last  Thursday.  R-. P. Williams, of the Canadian  R��nd Drill Co., who .are furnishing  ihe.huge ore crusher and 60 drill compressor for the Granby Co., was in  camp Thursday.  XV. T. Smith, of the Emma mine,  was in town Thursday. He says he  will, soon lie shipping ore from the  main shaft. The C.'P. R. is extend;  ing the sidetrack'at the mine.,..  George S. Waterlow, of London,  England, a large shareholder 111 the  Sno.wshoe mine, who has been on this  side of the water for some weeks, is  expected to arrive in camp eai !y next  month.  Hugh Sweeney, formerly manager  of W. K, Megaw's store at Grand  Forks, but latterly with Rendall & Co.,  of Eholt, has returned to Grand Forks  as manager of Mr.. Megaw's store, and  has also taken an interest in the business. ��� '���      PICNIC ON  LABOR DAY  Phoeq&c,  ��� if,  Will Celebrate  This Year.  here  FW1  All  0YEI  HE  MMJNBA1Y  Moodiy Weel Will fee Eajoyetfasaa Oaliof  at New York Towaslte Park���Preparation Are Now Belag Made.  \ .Geo.

Most  Mrs. Henry Heidmann and family,  who have spent ^several months at  Walla Walla, Wash., returned to Phoenix Thursday.  Smith BrosM the contractors, who  have done so much building in Phoenix, have been awarded the contract  for the construction ot the new school  house at Revelstoke���to be one of the  finest in the interior.  Rev. Joseph McCoy, formerly of  Phoenix, but now located in Vernon,  is likely to take charge of a high class  '���ollege for young ladies to .be started  this fall in Vancouver. Mr., McCoy  is well fitted for such a post.  John Thornton,: faniiliarlydcnowm as  "Jolly Jack," is applying to be admitted to the Old Men's Home at Kamloops. He first came to the Boundary  in the early sixties, when placer mining w��}s \t\$ fiflly attraction.���-.,������,  Remarkable  Tniogs Predicted for ibe  Boundary.  At the recent banquet given to Col.  Prior at Grand Forks, R. A. Brown in  responding to the mining interests,   is  reported by the Grand   Forks  News-  Gazette to have made a most felicitous  speech.   He enumerated the vast re  sources of the country with amplitude  of detail, a precision of statement, and  an exuberance of spirits that indicated  his perfect acquaintanceship with  the  subject.    His speech was the speech  of the evening.     It was a brilliant exposition ol  the  potentialities of the  country from the standpoint of the pioneer, hunter, trapper," prospectoe and  trail-blazer.    It was  a  word   picture,  sparkling with wit, and  abounding  in  hyperbole, against  a luminous  background of solid, incontrovertible facts.  Mr. Brown reviewed the growth of the  Boundary since he arrived 18 years ago.  Then   he  described   his  Volcanic,  Wolverine and Sunset mines before outlining his big project for driving a   16  mile tunnel for the purpose of tapping  the leading mines at depth.     He said  he had secured a mile square of dump  ing grounds, near Volcanic city,    The  tunne) would run from, the  west bank  of the north fork and swing in  a half  circle traverse Brown's, Summit, Phoenix and Deadwood camp before emerging at Copper camp,    Hepropc Sid to  make upraises from  this  double-track  working to the various  mines  whose  ores would be  dumped automatically  into the railway cats.     He  predicted  that the entire ore of the Boundary wiil  be smelted at Volcanic city,  and  that  a string of smelters will extend all the  way from   Grand   Forks to  Volcanic  city, a distance of twelve niil.es,  Phoenix will hold a'Labor Day celebration! again'this year, but it will be  in a different manner from that which  was held last year. It will take the  form of an immense picnic, to be held  at thcjfintw York tewnsite park, just  '���eutside'tWcityJimits.'in Which all the  labor organizations will take part. Last  Wednesday evening a meeting of the  Phoenix Trades and Labor Council  was held, and the whole matter was  discussed, and it was'decided to hold  the picnic.  This year Labor Day comes on the  1st day of September,  which   is next  Monday week.    Invitations have been  sent to labor representatives in Greenwood, Grand Forks and other Boundary towns, to join with Phoenix in enjoying this holiday, and it is expected  a large'number will be glad  to avail  themselves of the opportunity of leaving the'hot valleys and enjoy the mountain breezes of Phoenix and its suburbs.  Work has already been  started   on  getting the grounds in  shape  for the  picnic, and by Labor  Day everything  will be in readiness.    A committee of  ladies met yesterday afternoon   to arrange for  their part of   the   duties,  which it is needless to say will be welt  done, as usual.  c-     _        c��l e -r>        .      - Bcaeflt for Heiry Synted.

There will also be log  rolling, swings, tug of war, glove contest, and a brass band will discourse  sweet music all day.

A., of Toronto, secretary ot the  Lord's Day Alliance, of Toronto, delivered an address at St Andrew's  Presbyteiian church on the aims and  objects of the organization, which is  the preservation of the Sabbath day as  one of rest for all. After the address,  a local organization was formed with  provisional officers, A. P. McKenzie as  president and Rev. Jasper Hard secret  tary-treasurer. The executive committee consists ol J. E. Mills, Rev. V,  M. Purdy and Rev. T. Green.  Mr. Shearer has been travelling  through British Columbia and the west  forming local organizations of the alliance, and has thus far been quite successful in the work, it appealing directly to workingmen and having the endorsement of the labor organizations,  as a rule.  W. L. Ross and son Guy went over  to Rock Creek this week.  Messrs. Slack and Morkill gave a  ping pong party Thursday evening.  Mrs. Thomas and children left on  Tuesday's Great Northern train for  New York City, where Mr. Thomas  has been for some time.  A new townsite is. about to be placed on the market in the Similkameen,  about three miles from the Nickle Plate  mine, on the Sunset.  A daily stage now runs from Greenwood to Curlew, to counect with the  Great Northern trains, on the newly  opened Republic branch, both ways.  A saving of one day is thus made by  travellers in reaching the Boundary.  BOUNDARY ORE SHIPMENTS.

It was constantly reiterated to him, and the most indisputable facts" and figures presented showing how manifestly unfair that system  of raising revenue is.,,'The gallant colonel ���took it all in, and promised to  bring it before his colleagues.'    -'  , Heretofore the government does  not seem to have realized that it is the  incidence of the taxation that is objected to; that is; the method of levying the same. We have yet to hear  of a mining company that objected to  paying some   tax,  and  many of the  ��� largest have even said that they would  willingly pay their share -if all were  treated alike. But for one mine to  pay the equivalent of one per cent on  the net output- and another to pay   15  . or 20 per cent, is certainly not equitable. ��� <i  What a picnic the two Victoria dailies have been having of late with solid  pages of legals for foreshore rights foi  fishing purposes. It is almost enough  to make an up-country newspaper man  wish that he'lived in the salmon and  webfoot belt.   ' >       ,       .  J. P. Morgan, he of the trust fame,  seems to have gone up against the real  thing when he organized his steamship  combine, if reports from London aie  correct.'' It is not so easy to corral the  trade of the high seas, especially it  governments take a hand.  C. P. R. officials of various degrees,  from the president down,1 have been  visiting the Kootenays of late, but none  of them have exolained the execrable  passenger service being given on the  'Phoenix branch of their great ra'lway  line.    Its up to them, now.  Figures showing that exactly this  condition exists under the law as it  now stands have been presented again  and again. The managers of low  grade mines naturally object to .paying  taxes on the wages they pay out and  the supplies and other things entering  into the business ol mining, which they  are forced to pay when they pay on the  value of the ore, less smelter': and  freight'charges.  ' According to statistics from Ottawa,  during the year ending June 30, 1902,  Canada exported copper to the value  of $2,990,000. Of this amount $a,-  000,000 worth came from the Boundary. These figures speak in clarion  tones of what can be done and is being  done in the Boundary in a mining way.  Advertising is the oxygin that will  maintain life in any business enterpiise.  The man who is dissatisfied with his  business doesn't know as much about  his advertising as he ought to know.  The character of every newspaper is  written all over it, plain for every lend  er of discrimination and judgment "to  determine.  An adveitiser ought to have confidence in his adveitising. Many an  advertiser has ceased to advertise when  just on the veige of success.  When competition is keen the advertiser should remember that the only  ac|yeitising that advertises is the adveitising that advertises the advertisisei's  business.  If you're making money without advertising you must, have a pietty good  sort of business, the putting of which  before the public in the proper manner,  through the proper mediums, would  surely make money faster for you.

Young is back from  a  pros  pecting trip through theOkancgaii dis  'trict, from Vernon to Pentictoh,' made  in theinteiests of Ash nola Smelting Co.  He was successful in  locating several  thousand acies of coal  lands' within  easy reach of transportation on  Okanogan Lake, The principal location was  made on Mission Creek, about six miles  back trom the lake, where he staked  over five thousand acres of coal lands.  The other location was made on Trout  creek, two and one half miles from the  lake, and consists of twelve hundred  and eighty acres.   There is an eight  foot seam on,the Trout creek property,  samples from which have been assayed  by A. L. McKillop, with very satisfactory lesults.   Mr. McKillop states that  the coal is first class for steam and domestic purposes.  The Ashnola Smelting Co. will commence development work on their new  properties at an early date. Mr. Young  is confident that-they will be shipping  coal into Nelson by January 1st, 1904.

Paiil Johnson, manager of the Greenwood smelter was  oyer to   the  coast  recently, and was not backward about  giving his ideas on the aggravating'coke  situation../ The Victoria jColonist (has  tlie following:   v,^! '���'���'-'   ���;. s^'l    i  ,    The ininesVof.tiie Boundary district  are ail right, for although the ores are  ���low-grade;1 they are illimitable in qua'n.'.,  tity, transportation' and  treatment   to  make   the'm   permanently   profitable;  What the country requires, said'Mr.  ���Johnson (and. Capt.  Gifford   heartily  concurred With him) is competition in  coal mining.    It is deplorable that the  whole'mining industry should beat the  mercy of one coal monopoly, which, at  any moment;'through some trifling'dis-'  pule with its employees, may  paralyze  the business of the country.   If two or  more-xonl'companies were operating, a  strike on one would not be likely to tie  up the others, and'thesmelters would  b.'-enabled to cohtinueworking.  Another reason why competition  should be encouraged is the fact that  while the Crow's Nes't Coal Company  lives to the letter of the law in supplying  coal at $2'a'ton,'trie quality .of coal supplied at that figure is generally so inferior that people prefer to pay a higher  price for a better grade. Then the company is not limited by its contract with  the government as to the price of coke,  and consequently can charge what it  likes. Again, the higher price which it  can obtain for coke in the-United  Stales often tempts the company to  ship the, bulk of its output across the  line to the detriment of the Canadian  smelteis.  It has been estimated by. a competent';-;au,tbor|ty that the Crow's Nest  Company has iii its deposits $144,-  000,000,000 worth of coal at $2 per ton.  so that "even' at that price, it'musi  eventually make millionaires of every  one of its directors A corporation with  such a gigantic monopoly should be  Drought under control ol' ihe government, so that the interests ol the province would be safe-guarded.  A proposition is now on foot to develop the coal measures'at Blairniore,  and smelter and mine owners are'-hoping that it will take definite shape.  There is also a report that J. J. Hill  has some iiiteri'tion'of going into the  coal 'mining bus.^ss, \vhich will, still  further relieve The situation. The C.  ['.

Sendlnjr to his Jeweler, he bade him  make a silver cup, with two handles,  and deliver It,to the young girl, without a word as to whence It came.

He looks around at  This time she entered the house and  come out with a beautiful sliver cup,  full of-*- the sparkling water. "Now,"  thought the king, "she has certainly  learned a lesson." But never was he  more mistaken, for the poor, ignorant  girl took a handle in1 each hand, and  for the second time offered her liege  lord nothing save the side of the cup.:  The king rode away deeply perplexed.  He resolved to teach the girl the polite  way to hand a cup without directly rebuking her; and many were the houn-  lie spent In cudgelling his brains for  some way In. which to do It. At last a  bright idea struck him, and he sent for  his Jeweler a second time. "Make trie,"  said he to the'man, "a silver cup, heavily chased, and with.my royal crest,  and put three handles on It." The Jeweler, much surprised���for remember, no  such thing had ever been heard of up  to this tlme^���did as he was told, and  soon the mug was finished. As before,  the king had It privately sent- to the  girl who lived In the little hut.  One day not long after this for thf  third time he rode Into that forest, and,  taking the now well-known path, soon  reached the cottage. Dismounting:, he  knocked at the door and asked humbly  for a drink of clear water.  The girl Immediately came out with  the beautiful three-handled cup, and,  taking two of the handles in her hands,  she offered him the third.  So the king, rode away well pleased  with his strategy and, reaching honu,  ordered three-handled cups to be made  In every sort of ware, 'and they became so popular that we now have  them In all bur shops and stores.  the ladles, many of whom come to ba  looked at.

GREER, Proprietor:  fe> OME years stgo there'lived in Tur-  T*li    In   a  physician   noted   far   and  ��2/    wide as a specialist of brain diseases.   Men and women came to  him from the ends of the earth.   With  the development of fortune, for his fees  were in proportion to his prominence,  he cultivated a pleasing taste for those  precious  relics  of antiquity In which  millionaires alone are privileged to Indulge.   He had in his library a collection of costly objects of art.   The fame  of his treasures was loud in the world's  ears with Che note of-his skill.   One day  a rich American banker came to consult him about his wife, a confirmed  kleptomaniac.   His life was a burden to  him, following her from store to store,  continually guarding    her   reputation  against  the encroachment of her fingers.    Though it  had  cost him  thousands, his wife knew nothi g, suspected  nothing .of  her   own   weakness.    No'  should she ever know if he could prevent It.  "If I brought her here to consult you  as a physician," said the afflicted husband, "I fear she would suspect something and It would kill her. If you will  permit it I'll bring her to call on you  as a collector of antiquities. Do not be  disconcerted, however, if during the Interview you find her pilfering, slipping  your relics and coins Into ber umbrella  or pockets. ..That is the ailment, and, of  course^ whatever she takes will be returned to you at oncei My references  are So and So, bankers." This with  much dignity and the production of  documents.  The physician made the appointment,  and next day the couple came. The  doctor brought out his treasures, won- ,  derful coins, antique jewelry, on which  he descanted with much graceful learning. Every now and then the lady  slipped.into her pocket or dropped Into  her parasol a coin, a Jewel, a vase, and  as she did so her husband winked at  the doctor to draw attention to her  theft.-When thephysiolan finally gave  the signal that he had learned all he  required, she had accumulated the rarest of his possessions.  "I'll be back within an hour," said  .the Chicago banker, "with the things  my wife has taken.. Poor, poor girl!"  he burst out. "Doctor, my fortune, my  life are yours If you can but cure her."  Two hours passed, then three, then  the interval lengthened to five. The  physician, rather alarmed, sent his servant to the American's hotel. No persons of the nani^. were staying there  The police were eajled in, descriptions  given, detectives went forth. They  identified the culprits, who had time t��  make their escape. They were London  pickpockets, two thieves whose characters and depredations were notorious  ail over. England. .,    .. ..>  There are many mothers who give  themselves Infinite trouble about the  big and obvious things connected  with nursery management���who strive  bravely to be up to date in the  matter' of plumbing, ventilation and  Infectious diseases ��� who yet fall  woefully when It comes to certain details. One of the most important of  these is the disgusting and. dangerous  habit of allowing every comer to.kiss  and maul the baby,'says the "Youth's  Companion."  A baby, no doubt. Is a delightful object and almost irresistible, but that is  no reason why advantage should 'be  taken of his helpless condition to offer  him constant hygienic outrages.  ' Here is a speech' a well-meaning  goose of a young mother made to the  father,of her child on his return from  business: ������"Mrs.' Smith called to-day,  John, She has a fearful cold and sore  throat. She thought'the baby was Just  too sweet for anything, and wouldn't  let him out of her arms. He,took to  her wonderfully, too." Naturally the  baby developed a bad case ot the snuffles In a day or two, and then It was :  "The baby has a dreadful cold. We  cannot think where he got it, ive are  always so careful."  This mother and the hundreds like  her should be taught the lesson that  promiscuous kissing is a bad and vulgar habit, productive of much danger  to adults as well as to children. Adults  can protect themselves if they like, but  infants cannot, and so.lt Is the duty of  the mothers to protect them.  Even if 4they mercifully escape actual Infection in babyhood, there still  remains the fact that a silly and unclean habit is formed, resulting in  schools full of kissing children, and by  and by in ridiculous communities of  kissing acquaintances. We may learn  a useful lesson from the Japanese in  this regard. They are .not a kissing  race, and the little children do not  know what It means, except perhaps  from their mothers. It is generally acknowledged that the Japanese ibabies  ate the healthiest and happiest of  youngsters, and who shall say how-  much wholesome restraint from the  kissing habit may have to do with this  fortunate state of affairs?  To make too much of children is to  spoil them, but in one respect they  should be treated Hke royalty���if they  must be kissed it should be only the  back of the hand.  Oregon R. R. & Nav. Co.
