Yesterday   the  city   public   school  I closed for   the  holidays, and.will not  resume till Monday, January 5th.  Examinations were' held in the mqr-  ing in both rooms, theie  being  about  25 parents and visitors   were  present.  Mr.Turner,   the  principal, and Miss  Curry, the junior teacher, were present-,  ed with tokens of regard by the scholars in the two rooms, which   took the  form of useful   articles.     Several  addresses w^re made by the visitors, and  the pupils acquitted   themselves credr  ilably.  It was expected  that when  winter  came on, and mosr of the outside carpenter work that is constantly going on  at the Granby mines,  had been.com*  pleted, the force of carpenters under  Foreman Wright would be materially  decreased.    This, however, is not the  case yet this year.   Some new building  or work is-constantly going on, and this  week work was staited on  new  ore  bins, which are located at  the  mouth  of the No. 2 tunnel.  When this tunnel was completed last  summer, with the portal under the new  machine shop, a track was mnoutand  a chute put in so that the ore from  this level ofthe Knob Hill  could be  run directly into the railway ore cars.  But in this way no oie from   this tunnel could be accumulated, it having to  be dumped,directly into the cars  on  the O'd Ironsides spur���not always a  convenient proceeding.  Accordingly the new ore bins  were  decided on and the work begun. These  bins will have a capacity of about 2,-  000 tons of ore, which will give a total  capacity of all the ore bins at the mines  amounting to about 12,000 tons.   The  object ol the new bins is that  the  ore  can be stored  and   work  continue as  usual at the No. 2 tunnel level, in case'  for any reason, shipments had to be cut  down temporarily, as  when  the  Cascade power failed last week.  iiiiMiuie town 01 curlew, Wash., is  sweets will be given to each child whose a,read}, enj-oving an jnc[|)t-ent boom, in  name appears on   the  Sundav  s,-h���l ^ flf. hfi im|)endi|]g raiKvay construc.  tion ofthe V., V. & E.

An  old piospect shaft on the former has  been cleaned cut and sinking is now in  progress, the present depth being 25  feet. Some good looking ore is being  taken out, with gold showing freely.  The shaft is to be sunk to 50 feet, when  a drift will be run on the vein to determine its general character and width.  Mr. AlcVicar is stated to be well pleas  ed with the oqtlook.  Renewing Country Hotel Licenses.  Last Monday the board  of licence  commissioners for the Boundary Creek  license   distiict   held   its  half-yearly  statutory   meeting   at  Grand   Forks.

Such a thing as any great excitement  over municipal politics has yet to be  known in.the Coiporation of the city  of Phoenix. Election day has come  and gone regularly, and passed off so  quietly that one would scarcely know  there had been an election. This may  have been because the voters realized  that the nominees were suitable men,  and would serve the city satisfactorily,  or il may have been because there is  nothing in the office of- alderman or  mayor but hard work. At any rate,  it'is generally acknowledged that the  city has, geneially speaking, been well  served since it became incorporated.  In.va|��other few weeks there will be  another election, but as yet there has  been no muttering' as to whom the  "candidates for the council board and  mayor would be. As far as heard from,  the present incumbents have given satisfaction, and if no new names are mentioned it is hardly likely that there will  be any objection to the re-election of  the present officials.  At the last session of the legislative  assembly the Municipal Elections Act  was changed in some respects, and  those who think they are entitled to  votes in January will do well to look  over the notice in another column,  calling special attention to the new  quali fications for voters. The new regulations will probably not make much,  if any, difference in the voters' list here,  but those who wish,to vote will find it  necessary to'comply with the new act.  For ins for registering can be had from  ' the city clerk.  Cascade's great water power is. get-  '   ting to be a factor in the development  - ��� of the mines of the Boundary.    When  the accident happened  to the works  last week, after being started but a few  days, it carried dismay to thousands  because of the idleness to  mines and  smelters it might bring on.     Fortunately, the damage will doubtless have  been repaired before these lines are in  print.   Cascade's power is needed  by  our industries, and i��  is destined  to  work a revolution in the' treatment of  iow grade ores.  The Crow's Nest coal output by April  will be 4,000 tons daily.  Last week Rossland oie shipments  amounted to 7,290 tons.  Republic mines shipped 371 tons of  ore to the Granby smelter last week.  The estimated profits of the Le Roi  mine for November are placed at $75,-  000.  Last week 109 tons of zinc ore were  shipped from the Slocan lo American  smelters.  The Giant has shipped 3,000 tons of  ore, averaging $10 per ton, tothe Trail  smelter.  Ore, shipments from the Slocan and  _ Slocan mining divisions were 406 tons  President Castro, of Venezuela,   has for iait week  gone up against the real thing, and the  sooner he backs down the better for  him and his poor country.

The Gianby Co.  are ordering two more, the Sunset smel-  ,ter will have a third, and Paul John-  eon, manager of the Greenwood smel'  ter, say* they will have two more.  With the seven now in use, this will  make twelve furnaces in this district,  handling probably 4,00�� tons of gold-  copper ore per day, or at the rate of  ' more than a {Billion tons yearly.

The census returns  put the population at 866. The large  ness*of the newspaper contrasts out of  all whooping with the suiallness of the  population. Its sou! is also great, and  its ingenuousness is winning when it  declares that Phoenix is the centre and  leading mining camp of the Boundary.  Had it said the most exalted, there  would have been less room for jealou*y  on the part of the numerous editors in  the neighboring lower regions. No  doubt Phoenix, knows its own business  best, and that the editor is appreciated  is proved by the fact that he combines  with journalism the duties of secretary  of-the camp Hoard of Trade.  ���*���  Mr. Proudfoot abo learned something about the Mongolian question as  viewed in Phoenix, and made the following remarks on it:  Phoenix is indeed a law unto itself.  Here no Chinamen may abide. In  other camps, and even in incorporated  cities, the pigrtailed Celestial is welcome to the sweets of liberty so dear  to every British heart. In Phoenix it  is otherwise. Chinamen must not  tread the streets from which gold quartz  inay be gathered by the passer-by.  The place of Li Hung and Chang  Chow, who, in less enlightened communities, throughout the length and  breadth ofthe Dominion, are graciously permitted to monopolize the humble,  if reimiueiaiive, office of the laundry-  man, is here usurped by a gentleman  by the name of Mackenzie. Inquiry  as to his nationality seems superfluous.  In connection with the visit,of His  Royal Highness the Crown Prince of  Siam and party, the following illustration of Siamese journalism, which is going the rounds of the press, may be of  interest. The paragraph, which is  pait ofthe report Of a shooting affair,  says: "Shooting Outrage. O! Fearful Agony. Khoon long, one of Pyra  Son's staff, was on a mission to Lampoon, and on his return instantly shot  dead by some miscreants, scoundrels.  O! untimely death. O! fea.ful, O!  Hell. All friends expressed their  mourne'. The cowardice dogs is still  at large. 6 soldiers and six policemen  were at once despatched."  Republic is a'town ���that has been  greatly blessed by newspapers in the  past, and the good work still keep: up.  No less than three attempts have been  made to run dailies there, the last being the Morning Standaid, which has  recently appeared upon the scene. To  the average man who gets the smell of  printer's ink, it is a question how it  can be expected that a place of that  size will support a daily in decent shape.  Grand Forks and Gieenwood, both  probably as good towns as Republic,  have tried the expeiiment lo the financial cost pj the prom.otors, and the  idea was wisely given up. It was  found that a ifood weekly was a better  proposition, from every standpoint,  than a weakly daily.

CHANCES IN MUNICIPAL ACTS.  Important Alterations that Should be Noted by  Voters]  During the last sitting of >the legislature several important changes were  made in the Municipal Clauses and  Municipal Elections Act. As the elections are approaching and as the change  affects the registration of certain qualified voteis, a summary of the same is  given below: ,:,:' i  Nominations for the offices of mayor  and aldermen take place on thesecond  Monday in January, between the hours  of 12 and 2, and polling on the Thursday following.  A radical departure is more in connection with naming the hours in which  polling shall take place. Under the  old act, the polling booths were open  from 8 a. m. to 4 p. m. Under the  amended act, this has been changed to  9 a. m. and 7:30 p. m. The keeping  of the polls open to the evening hour  named is done with the object of making it convenient for workingmen to  vote.' !.i ,''  Another important new provision is  that all electors must be British subjects. Under, the old act all who paid  licenses, foreigners included/ could  vote, as could also foreign property owners..  In respect to properly owners, it is  now provided that they must have out  hundred dollars worth of property.in  order to qualify. Under the old act ip  joint owners could vote.  Again, license holders and household*  ers must make a declaration that they  have been a continuous resident in the  municipality for one year, and that  they are Biitish subjects.  'I he "one man, one vole," principal  is aimed at under the new act. Then-  will be no more voting by one person  in three wards. Electors must vote in  the wards in which they reside. In  the case where n, Yoler resides-'outside,  the city lirm'tSj he vfill vote in the ward  in which he has the most real estate.  EASTERN  Townships Bank  ESTABUSHED I 859.

We handle the flazledean  - Creamery Butter, put tip in  thoroughly seasoned wooden  ' boxes.   It ia easily worth Z\4 cents per pound more than  1   any other Creamery Butter on the market.
