The Granby  Co. employs 500 ipen, and  has a monthly pay roll of "  over $50,000, >vhile the Baw-  hide pay roll is $18,000.  Devoted to the interests of the Boundary Mining District  The  Phobnix , Pionker' is  -published   in ��<*___<.   highest  '"��� municipality   in   Canada���  ' * altitude, <800 ft.   The city-  has a population of ,1,500,  and    possesses    first-class  ;>.    hotels, opera house, schools  FIFTEENTH YEAR  I \  ���J'  'PHOENIX, B>.C., SATURDXY^AVG.'3P^f9l3  Number of Pupils Increase  y     The public school census of Phoenix   at   the  commencement  of the  . term,   which   opened    on   Monday,  shows a decided increase over that  of the preceding one.      At the clo.se  of the school for the summer vacation, there   were 110 pupils  on the  rolls, and   this  has  now   bean   increased to approximately 140, making imperative  the addition  of- another teacher  to  the   staff".    With  perhaps   the  exception   of nine  or  ten seats,  the  total accommodation  of the school is taken   up.     The increase  is  chiefly  made   up  by the  children of  the   fourth division, foi  out of a class of 41 pupils, there are  25 new faces, while   ten other newcomers are enrolled on the-registers  of the other three classes.  Some changes have also taken  place in the teaching staff, the per-  sonel of which, with the .exception  of the principal, E. E. Barnes, has  been quite altered. Mrs. Alex.  McDowall has been assigned the  charge of the second division, and  Miss McEwen, of Grand Forks,  that of the third, while Mrs. J. R.  Munro has kindly consented-to  accept the temporary position of  teacher to the fourth, a provision  made necessary by the unexpected  resignation at the last moment, of  Miss May. As before, Mr. Barnes  is directing the destinies of the  first division. Mr. Barnes is making considerable progress with the  school library, which now boasts of  about 300 volumes of extremely  healthful literature, including sets  of the works of Dickens and Scott,  besides a large number of fiction  volumes "of a very"desirable and  educational kind. A liberal supply  of copies o( the British Columbia  School magazine were_also on  hand. Although but a few days  have  elapsed   since  the  opening of  the holidays commenced,-/are'by no  means completed, a delay in the  delivery of goods beiqg chiefly responsible. The big Gurney furnace,  however, is in position, as'a're also  the radiators, three of w hich a're  in each class roorq,, and four others  standing in the main entrance hall,  with a couple of smaller ones in  different places on the main flour  Cement to a depth of from five to  eight inches now covers the base-  inent floor, and some addition to the  toilets is included in the scheme.  The next thing contemplated is the  erection of a fire escape, the laying  out of a playground, the purchase  of a national flag, and a sanitary  drinking fountain^ to prevent the  Spread of an infectious disease  among the children.  ���LABOR DAY CELEBRATION  ,' _ .

In this  district,   the shooting of game  such   as  grouse  and  Jeer opens  on   September 1st, and  closes at midnight on December 31.  The shooting  of ducks,   geese and  snipe commences   on   the'same day  and extends  to February 28, 1914.  Deer  in this "district   must  not  be  killed  less  than   one  year  of age.  Until October   15, deer  of the male  sex ma}' be sold until the expiration  of that date.    Game birds and deer,  lawfully killbd, may be   kept for the  private  use of the  owner for foui-  teen dj;ys after  the shooting season  has  closed,   while   in   the   case   of  ducks, geese   and   snipe, the period  tor the .same purpose ts five days. In  all cases,  however, the proof of the  time of"'killing or   purchasing shall  be on Jthe ,p_a��ty .in., pos.^ssipjn. ~VA  note of warning is sounded for anyone carrying a gun or rifle tyitbout  the   necessary   license,   the cost of  which for  deer   and   game  birds is  the term, the visitor could  not help  but be   impressed   with   the perfect J $2.50.  discipline in evidence from the highest to the lowest division.  The alterations decided on before Istead entries in B.C. is reported.  Next   Monday,    the   first   Latar  Day celebration that'has  been held  in Phoenix   for some years,  ... jan  nouncedto take place; preparations  for which 'haVe   been   going on.for  the   pas��   tliree   weeks.    According  to John   Marshall,   the  celebration  secretary/   everything   is   now  'in  readiness,   and all   that   is wanting  is a little .favorable consideration on  the part of the weather clerk, who  by the   way  promises   us  no break  in the present weather for at least a  week  to  come.    Both   thel C.P.R.  and Great Northern companies have  generously   risen   to   the   occasion,  and have each arranged for a special  train from   all  important Boundary  points. The former will take charge  of the visitors from  Greenwood 'and  Midway, "itvhile   the  people of   the  Forks will have the ^choice of either  company's service.    The cost of the  round trip  on both  lines  is  a fare  and   one-third.    The  fame   of  this  town   when   its citizens  choose   to  hold a  celebration,  is   widespread,  and   among   the   visitors   will   Be  found   many  of those   who  at one  time   or   other   have   made    their  home in this  city,   and  to whom it  still   retains   much  of  its   old-time  attraction.   - The  committee" haye  worked hard   preparing   the details  of a splendid^program land may.^coh  fidently   "be*   expected     to" see ' it  through _cr_ts1_m-sb:"Butrthey:-can-'  not do everything.      More than one  city's  carefully-planned  celebration  has fallen   flat  and   proved a fizzle  owing chiefly to  the   apathy shown  towards   it  by   its    own   residents.  preliminaries,   is   between    H. - R.  McCoskrie, champion middleweight  of^the Boundary, if not of B.C.,'and  Mike Ageh of  the  PhoenixrAthietic  club,   both^ of whom   of late have  been  undergoing a course  of rigorous training  in  anticipation_of   the  match.'  The final number, for what  promises to be a strenuous day, wilh  be~*a  dance  in   the   fine ballroom of  the Union hall.   . The following is a  snmmao'.of the day'sLprogram:  ���'  ,  One hundred yards  race for men  (open   to  all); fifty'yards,  for boys  under 16; fifty yards, for girls under  16; 220 yards, for men, open to all;  fat man's race, not less than2001bs. ;  ladies' egg and spoon race; race for  men, sixty years and over; the foregoing    take   place   on    Knob    Hill  avenue, commencing at ten o'clock.

A massive solid  .silver trophy cup will be given the victorious team and other trophies  offered for the various games and individual players. The centre field at  the fair ground has been made as smootlvand green as a��Iawn under the  supervision of the Spokane Park board. All hydrants, light poles and  other obstructions have been removed, and the field ,will"give a clear  view of some of the most exciting polo matches ever witnessed in the  United States. There is intense rivalry between the poloists of Canada  and those of the Pacific coast, and Spokane is fortunate in having the  first Northwestern International tournament take place on its field.  -/I  .1  New Road Under Construction  Active operations on the spur  connecting Phoenix with the fine  automobile. road to Grand Forks  commenced on August 21st, and at  present the government* have between 38 and 40 men at work. - Al-  Mishap to Football Team  While returning to Greenwood on  Wednesday night, the visiting football team from that town bad the  misfortune to come to grief about a  mile this side, of Jenks' ranch.

DISTINCTIVE  are the feature" of  iMo Run-away Market Wanted  "The excited buying," says the  current issue of that authority on  metals, the Boston Commercial,  "which carried the price of copper  up to 16 cents a week ago, has subsided and the market is a trifle  easier. Lake is novy 15/_j and  electrolytic 15-)_( to 15^_ per pound.  Producing interests are working  rather to prevent than to encourage  a further advance in the price of  copper at the present. They are  well sold out, most of them having  disposed of all tbe copper they will  be able to deliver up to the end of  next month, and therefore they  would not benefit materially, for the  present at least, by higher prices'.  It is for, the best interests of the  producing companies in the long  run that the price of copper should  remain as nearly as possible at one  level from year to year. Extreme  advances always have a tendency  to cut off more or less consumption,  and not infrequently a combination  of trade depression and other factors  result in a period of abnormally low  prices immediately following.  "In 1906 some of the largest producers attempted to stop the advancing tendency of the market at  lz>)�� cents per pound. At that price  they sold copper as long as they  had any to deliver; but the demand  so exceeded the supply that the  metal sold at 26 cents a month  later. It is understood that certain  producing and selling interests,  wishing to avoid a runaway market  at present, have recently admonished their customers to avoid excitement, assuring them that all the  copper there is, coming from the  mines will be divided between them  proportionate to their requirements and that prices will not be  advanced unless they are bid up by  the consumers themselves."

Two years ago the Whitehead  torpedo "factory .in England, Hvah  obliged to refuse an~ enormous order/or a~supply of the new weapon  frorn*the l^njted States government,'  in consequence of an equally large  contract ,withT the Japanese government, that monopolized the output  forjiearly two years.

This -improved  weapon has a range'of nearly twelve  thousand yards, has a speed of 40  knots, and is about twice as destructive as that of the old pattern.  Capt.   Remnant,   ot    the   British  steamer,    Luciline,     reports     that  while  in   the  vicinity   of  the   spot  where   the  Titanic   was   struck, he  sighted "Svliat  appeared . to   be   thg  hulk of a vessel   protruding -about  eight feet  or  more  above  the sea.  The captain   reports  the derelict to  be practically in   the spot where the  disaster occurred.      It wis covered  with   marine  growth   and   had  the  appearance  of being held with  an  anchors in shallow water and buoy-  up by   a .water-tight  compartment.  Captain Remnant is of opinion that  it   was   the    forward   part  of   the  Tit mic, which it is said split in two  before   she   sank.

These comments show" that  the Borden  proposal  was regarded  by Britain's rival*  as of the utmost  significance in  its bearing upon the  Empire's preparedness  for successful naval defence.   He-re is what the  Hamburger Naclirichten, under  the  heading of  "The Canadian  Dreadnoughts," has   to say  of  the effect i  produced   on   the   continent   by the  rejection of the measure:  ^ "Whatsoever may be decided upon later, the  actual decision   of the  Canadian  Senate means at any-rate  a heavy moral and material loss- for  the defence  of the   British empire,-  as Mr.  Borden's promise  of assist-  "ance had been foolishly counted on.  His offer made an enormous impression   on- the   whole   world.      Mr.  Churchill pointed  out this  fact especially in   the well-known' memorandum of the Admiralty.     This impression   will now  not  only be destroyed, but people will  everywhere  obtain the conviction  that England  cannot depend upon such-help from  her  colonies.       'By Vivals  and enemies,'-  says._.the    Morning .Post,  the  decision   will ;be-eagerly' welcomed.     .By friends it will-be regarded as ominous.  "The impression must inevitably  be created that the solidarity of the  Empire is "a myth, and that those  powers which would like to see the  overthrow   of   British  naval   supre  sought ^n  asyt_im.rin.'Canaiiar( and  ^���e_j-auJlh'orii!es'>��.t_��f_.^coqi_try are;  again chlled.upon Jcf decide oji the  disposition  jof'.'a   second   wealthy  fugitive from Uncle Sam's justice.  The first one was Greene,- who after  dipping into the American  treasury  to   the extent    of '$800,000,   kept  the   French-Canadian   judges   busy  for months, deciding  first one thing  and then another until the affair began to assume  the appearance of a  huge farce.    And  now,   on the top  of everything, comes Thaw, a  man  -foundguilty of'murdering-another,  with a reputation but a little worse  than that  of himself.     Both of..the  fugitives were  well  advi.sed.   -They?  have chosen the Quebec courts, and  if the case of Greene is anything for  us  to   judge'from,   our  unbidden  guest bids fair to be able to personally greet  hi3 Canadian jailer with  a hearty Christmas greeting.        ��� ���"  .

In his  presidential address, Sir Thos. Barlow struck the great keynote of the  congress, and to, humanity at large  he gave the following message of  hope and encouragement:  "I venture to 'foretell that'not  many years hence every department  of life and work will be strengthened, purified and brightened by the  healing and penetrating influence  of medical science. . . . Every  day we gain fresh knowledge, and  we realize more and more the unity  and universality of medicine."  The physiological section of the  congress also dealt the anti-vivisec-  lionist campaign a severe blow, by  endorsing the following resolution:  "That this section records its  convictions that experiments on  living animals have proved of ihe  utmost service to medicine in the  past and are indispensable to its  future progress, and that accordingly, while strongly deprecating the  infliction of unnecessary pain, il is  of opinion alike in the interests of  man and of animals that every facility should be given to competent  persons for the performance of such  experiments under adequate supervision."  only son of the present very efiici-  cient and scholarly Governor-General of this Dominion.

Ma'ny' thousands' of _ people have  seen this remarkable ' production  and wondered greatly at seeing  Miss Williams-hurled to the ground  and mauled by a huge leopard,  which leaped jjpon'her from a clump  of bamboo." '^ ���  , " , 1    "  ;-This Svasrno trick of the camera.  It ^actually happened. It was originally ' 'meant ^that'-'the"^ leopai'd  should only appear to lepp upon  her, its' spring being directed to a  goat tied out of <view of the camera,  but at ;the. critical moment. Miss  Williams raised one of her hand to  brush back a _tress. of hair, and the  movement sufficed to divert the  brute's attention to her.  Instead of going for .the goat, it  pounced upon the actress, bowling  her over and fixing its claws in her  scalp. Tonight, at the Opera house,  a reel entitled "The-Animal Trader's  Daughter in the Jungle," will be  shown as the opening number.
