Last Saturday evening the regular  meeting of PHoenix Miners' Union  No. 8 was held as usual, and the letter  from A. B. W. Hodges, local manager  of the Granby Consolidated, which was  sent through the disinterested offices  of a committee of the Phoenix Board  of Trade, was read and considered.  The contents of the letter were not  made public, but it is known to relate  to the proposed return of the men of  the union to work at the Granby mines  on the scale posted at the works, being  about 50 cents lower per day than that  in force when the mines closed on the  11 th of November.  The union appointed a committee,  consisting of John Mclnnis, M. C.  Wade nnd Jno. C. Halsey, to meet  Mr. Hodges and discuss the situation.  This committee went down to Grand  Forks Monday afternoon, met Mr.  Hodges and talked matters over, it  being understood that, after the committee reported back to the union, the  members would be given a chance to  record a referendum vote as to whether  the new scale should be accepted or  turned down.  A special meeting of the union~was  called for Wednesday evening, and it  is understood that from 300 to 400  men were there,! The committee that  went to Grand JForks reported, and a  number of speeches were made on the  subject uppermost in the mind of every  resident in the ^Boundary. . Following  that a secret ballot was had on the new  wage scale, witrijtbe understanding that  the result was not to be made public  till the next evening.  The commiHee in charge of the  ballots was Henry Heidman, M. C.  Wade and Walter Cook, but on account  of the influencer'that the lesult might  have on the decision of the Movie  arbitration, board, which was to meet  on Thursday, aB Nelson, the vote was  not given out at' once.  As the Pioneer went to press last  night, the resiijt was still unknown,  the officers off the union not yet being ready to. Announce it, but from  the expressions; heard locally, there  was a confident feeling that the vote  was largely in favor of resuming work  at the offeredi* scale, and ' that the  mines of the tifanby Co. would prob-  bably be working again by Monday  next. -1  PHOENIX FRUIT IN  THE OLD COUNTRY  COMING AND GOING  &&&&&&^^i^m  &  STILL IN THE RING  t ������� ��wt ^m ��wi ������� in��� 111 ��� w   ����� m ^���"���f��W"����->4W^��-|  \ i  1               The country may be a liltl >. dis- |  J           figured, temporarily, but   we   wish I  :           to assure our large   list of  (riends |  j          and patrons that we .\re   "Still   in 1  ;          the  Ring"  with  a  well   selected 3  I           stock of everything that is needful j  \          to keep body and soul together.

Boundary Mining Notes  ^mm$^M<^&-*  Work is being carried on with full  force at the Dynamo claim.  Developmenat the Croesus claims  said to be giving satisfactory results.  One man is now the sole employee  at the War Eagle in this camp���ihe  watchmen.  Drifting is now proceeding at the  2 25-foot level ofthe Crescent mine,  Skylark camp, about two and a half  miles below Phoenix, ten men being  employed under Supt. Feeney.  A car ol steel was received at the  Rawhide mine a few days ago, coming  direct from Pittsburgh.  The Dominion Copper Co. has now  about a thousand   tons of coke at   its  Boundary Fallsjsmelting works.  ���<*������'���'���  During the  month  of October  the  Granby Co. sent out  something like  90,000 tons lof.ore���one of the largest  months,in its bjjfqry.^  C. P. R. men in the extra gang are  now putting on the finishing: touches  to the new spur track for the Granby's  Gold Drop-Curlew, outlet.  A carload of concentrates from the  Cariboo-McKinney mine was recently  shipped from Bridesville, the nearest  railway point, to thesmeltei at Everett.  A shipment of 13 steel ore cars  was received at the Granby mines  diiect trom Pittsburgh, being for use al  the 400-foot level for the Victoria  shaft outlet.  Isaac Skidmore moved down to the  Lake mine, near the Crescent, last  week, and will look after the property,  which is owned by the Chicago &r B.  C. Mining Co., composed mostly of  Chicago men.  It is understood that the B. C.  Copper Co., when in operation, pays  the C.'P. R- about $10,000 per month  in freight accounts. The Granby Co.,  under the same conditions, pays to  both railways over $30,000 per month.  Thomas Russell and partners, who  located what is believed to be a vaiu-  able hematite iron ledge of mammoth  proportions this last summer in the  Sturgeon lake district of Ontario, has  received an offer to take an option on  it for a year.  This week the metals have been  gradually getting weaker in the world's  markets. Silver is around 53 and 54  cents per ounce, copper 1 2 }4 and 13  cents and lead about 3^ cents per  pound. They are evidently waiting  till after the holidays before taking an'  upward trend.  Owing to the uncertain situation in  the Boundary, as well as the low price  of copper, Boundary copper shares  have been rather weak ol late. B. C.  Copper is quoted from $4.00 to $4-50,  Dominion Copper around $2.25,  Granby from $70 to $80 and Consolidated M. & S.' from $70 to $90.  There was never a better time to buy  any of them.  Interesting Letter from Martin  Bun ell.  J. L Martin, of this city, who furnished a sample of "apples' to the display taken to England by Martin  Burrell last fall, has received a letter  from Mr. Burrell, telling of the excellent keeping of the fruit when unpacked in England. The letter' foi-  lows:"   . ���  Yorkj England,���'.  Dec. 2, 1907.  My dear Mr. Martin :������  I have just arrived here to exhibit a  portion of our B. C. fruit at the York  Cattle Show, having left London at  the close of the Royal Horticultural  Society's Exhibition. No doubt you  saw by the cablegrams sent to B.C.  Inst week, that we acheived very satisfactory results at that exhibition by  winning the gold medal and 12 other  silver and bronze medals. I am writing specially, however, to inform you  that the "Yellow Transparent" apple  sent to me at Grand Forks by yourself, retained its sound condition and  was quite firm when unpacked, by me  in London last Thursday. I gave it  the honor of a special place and attached a card with the words, "Grown  at Phoenix, British Columbia, at an  elevation of 4,700 feet above the sea  level."  Seeing that Phoenix varieties of  summer apples have such marvellous  keeping qualities, you will know what  to do with your hillside should the  mines play out.  With kind  regards to yourself, Mrs.  Martin and other Phoenix friends,  Yours sincerely,  Martin Burrell.  Like Qeltlng Money Prom  Home.  Quite a number of entries have been  made for the $10 cash prize, offered by  J. L. Martin, president ofthe  Carney  Copper Co., for the  best criticism of  the ud of the company now appearing  in the Pioneer���some  being from the  far  east,   the  middle  west  and from  nearer home.    There are no restrictions  on those who may compete, and some  one will receive a ten dollar  note that  will   be  mighty   easily  earned.    Any  one intending to compete should lose  time,   as  letters   must   bear postmark  not later  than   December  24th,   now  but  three days   distant    It  will   be  just like getting, money from home for  some individual���-the one  who, in the  opinion of the editor of the  Pioneer,  sends   in   the   best   criticism.    The  name,of the successful competitor will  be printed in next week's issue  of the  Pioneer.  j superintendent of the western agencies  ofthe bank,  COPPER COSTS  WERE HIGH  Comparison of Boundary Producers.  Did Not Get Full Benefit of ihe  25c. Market.  Boundary Side Lights  Tuesday night the mercury reached  five below zero in the Boundary creek  valley.  Half a million ties will be required  by the C. P. R. for its Boundary  branch next year.  County court was held in Greenwood this week, and a number of  minor cases were passed upon.  Tom Hardy, of Midway, has become a monopolist, now having the  only general store in his burg, since  absorbing Rendell & Co.  The Anaconda News failed to appear  as usual last week, owing to the editor,  Robert Keffer, having sustained a  sprain to his wriv. THs week's issue  begins the eighih  year of the News.  With the lowering   of   the   price  of  copper in the last six months   from 25  cents to 12 or 13 cents   per  pound, it  is of interest to note what  it   cost the  producers in the Boundary to turn out  the refined metal.    Particularly is this  the case when it is the geneial opinion,  seemingly, that the   price  of  the  red  metal  is   likely   to  stay   around   the  present quotations   for   some   time  to  come,   at  least.     vVhen   copper   was  bringing above 20 cents per pound, all  the   companies   here   and   elsewhere,  when operating to  full   capacity, were  making   excellent   profits, but   cutting  the price in half puts  a different  view  on the case.  According to the official annual report of the Granby Consolidated, it  cost that company for the fiscal year  ending June 30th last 10.13 cents per  pound to mine, smelt, refine and sell  its copper.  Newman Erb, chairman of the board  of directors of the British Columbia  Copper Co., Ltd., is quoted in New  York as saying that the cost of copper  f.o.b. at the Greenwood smelter was  not above io^4 cents per pound, but  that when refining and selling charges  were added, including freight to the  refinery, the cost was around the 1 2 %  cent level.  The normal cost of the copper of  the Dominion Copper Co. is figured at  \oY-z cents per pound, but for the  fiscal year ending July 3i.-t last, with  all the drawbacks encountered, it cost  the company approximately 14 cents  per pound to turn out its copper.  After the completion of its third furnace, on account of severe weather  conditions, coke troubles, etc., the  company hardly had a full month at  full capacity, but lost about three  months' time in the year.  The cost of producing copper by the  Consolidated Co. at the Snowshoe  mine is not given out, part of the ore  going to the Trail smelter and the  balance to Greenwood.  From tiie above it will be noted that  not one of the companies was able to  get anything like the full benefit ofthe  high price of copper in the last year,  due to the causes mentioned, which in  every case made the cost of production, owing to the relatively small  amount   of   ore   handled, abnormally  high.

Now take the piece of  siding 'in-'the hand and use it as a  clapper. Put it on hot. Divide the  strokes evenly and see that none miss.

Copper company, according to the  decision handed down iu the case  when it was tried at Colville recently.  ��� E. W.Talbott of Spokane, and  Mrs. Carrie Wurzbtirg of Marcus and  W. P. Tpwnsend, J. P.. Reynolds, S.  Dilsheimer and C. E. Wingham of  Colville were the original owners of  the Napoleon and Bonaparte mine.  In 1904, at the solicitation of Mr.  Dil��heimer, they gave an option to  Julius Ehrlich of Greenwood, for $to,-  000. Mr. Ehrlich, it is claimed, represented that the option would be  turned over to P.Burns & Co., of  British. Columbia.  P. Burns & Co., after spending  several thousands of dollars on develop:  menr, did not take the property, but  turned the option back to Mr. Ehrlich.  who later sold it to the B. C. Copper  company for $60,000.  Tlie plaintiffs claimed that when P.  Burns & Co, gave up the option the  property reverted to the original owners,  and that Mr. Ehrlich was only the  agent of the owners, and was accountable to them for the $60,000. fudge-  rrienr was awarded to the defendant,  who was represented by Voorhees &  Voorhees of Spokane and W. H. Jackson of Colville. Slater & Allen of  Colville conducted the case for the  plaintiffs. It is understood that the  case will probably be appealed.     ,  A Hjme   Made   Happy    by    Chamberlain's  Couth Remedy.

SAMUEL DUNDEE,  U. "uudee Agent.  Dated, 6th November, 1907.  ��       Waking Good.  There Is no way of making lasting  friends Uke "Making Good;" and Doctor  Pierce's medicines well exemplify this,  and* their friends, after more than two  decades of popularity, are numbered by  the hundreds of thousands. They have  "made good" and tbey have not made  drunkards.  A good, honest, square-deal medicine of  known composition Is Dr. Pierce's Golden  Medical Discovery. It still enjoys an immense sale, while most ofthe preparations that have come Into prominence in  the.earlier period of Its popularity have  "gone by the board "and are never more  heard of. There must be some reason for  this long-time popularity and that Is to  be found in its superior merits. When  once given a fair trial for weak stomach,  or for liver and blood affectious, its superior curative qualities are soon manifest;  henco it has survived and grown in pop��  nlar favor, while scores of less meritorious  articles have suddenly flashed into favor  for a brief period and then been as soon  forgotten.  For, a torpid liver with: its attendant  Indigestion, dyspepsia, headache, perhaps dizziness, fouf breath, nasty coated  tongue, with bitter taste, loss of appetite,  *ritn distress after eating, nervousness  and debility, nothing is so good as t)r.  Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It's  an honest, square-deal medicine with all  Its ingredients printed on bottle-wrapper  ��� no secret, no hocus-pocus hunitnig,  therefore don't accept a substitute that  the dealer may possibly make a little bigger profit. Insist on your right to have  what you call for.      ���>'  Don't buy Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription expecting it to prove a "cure-all." jt  Is only advised for woman's special ailments. It makes weak women strong and  sick women well. Less advertised than  some preparations sold for like purposes,  Its sterling curative virtues still maintain  its position in tho front ranks, where it  stood over two decades ago. As an invigorating tonic and strengthening nervine it is tinequalcd. It won't satisfy those  who want "booze," for there Is not a drop  of alcohol in It.  Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets, the original Little Liver Pills, although the first  pili of their kind in the market, still lead,  ami when onco tried are ever afterwards  in favor.

The above prescription ha�� been  found invaluable in the treatment of  kidney, bladder and urinary troubles,  and diseases arising therefrom, snob  as rheumatism, sciatica, lame back  and lumbago, and we feel that the  public are entitled to particulars  concerning it.  A prominent physician states tnat  the excellent results that, have been  obtained from the use of the mixture  are due to its direct action upon tbe  kidneys, assisting them in their work  of filtering all poisonous waste matter  and ���-eidsfrom the blood and expelling  same in the urine, and at the same  time restoring the kidneys to a healthy-  condition.  He further states that anyone Buffering from afflictions of this nature  will find it to be very beneficial, and  sugeests that it be given a trial.  The Relief Experienced Dy Mrs.  Carr Through the Use of Pc-ru-na,  After Having Tried the Best Professional Treatment In Vain, Is a  Matter of No Small' Wonder  Among Her Many Friends.  Mrs. P. Carr, Vlneland, Ont., Can.,  writes:  "For several years I was afflicted with  catarrh, which mado life a burden.  "The coughing and hacking which  accompanied the disease was terrible.  "The complaint finally extended to  the stomach and I was in a wretched  condition.  '���I tried different remedies and the  best professional treatment all in vain.  "Finelly, as a last resort, I tried  Peruna upon tho recommendation of  my sister in Hamilton.  "I could see steady improvement and  after using four bottles of that precious  medicine I was feeling well again, my  MRS. F, CARR.  old troublo being completely a thlag oi  tbe past,  "To-day I would not tako ono thmmai**!  dollars for what. this grand noedletno  has done for me."  Many women owe their Urea to  Peruna. A great many more owe tbolv  health to Peruna.  A multitude of women throughout  Canada aro using Peruna as �� preventative and a relief from catarrhal oougha  and colds.  We have in our files a great number  of letters from grateful women who  have been benefited by Peruna, -with  permission to-use these letters In pubUo  print.  Catarrh would not be such a oaxM to  the human race if people thoroughly  understood its nature.  Catarrh Is a disease which never hw  proves of Its own accord, but becomes  deeper seated the longer It Is neglected.
