Thomas, superintendent of the Dominion Copper Company's smelting  works at Boundary Falls, to blow in  the second furnace at those works in  about'two weeks', time. Two weeks  agj the first furnace was placed in  blast by.Mr. Thomas, and since then  has been doing very satisfactory work,  it is understood, unofficially. Ap  proximately 350 tons of ore per day  have been smelted, the ore all coming  frorn the company's Brooklyn, Stem-  winder and Rawhide mines in P"hoe-  nix camp, and from their Sunset mine  in Deadwood camp, the latter being  used as a flux.  A number of improvements have  been made by Mr. Thomas,since he  assumed charge at the smelter, and  witn his force Of some" "66" "men" he~is  getting excellent results;. ; The matte  from the Dominion Copper Company's  smelter is Converted at tthe converting  works of the British. Columbia Copper  Company at Grrenwood, a carload  beiug treated every two or three days.  With the blowing in of the second  furnace at this smelter the daily output of the company's mines in this  camp will also be doubled. At, present  the company has about 160 men all  told on its payroll, which number will  be materially increased with the increase of output soon to take place,  lhe monthly payroll of the company  iri this camp, which took place this  week, distributed, about $10,600 jri  wages alone here from the one company." With that of the Granby Company here, which also took place ai  the same lime, between "$50,006' and  $60,000 was paid out h��re to -miners  for November payroll.  And Mr. Ross Will Work for  V.,V.&E.-MaiIAIso.  'As a result of the agitation of the  business men of Phoenix, the postoffice  department will not discontinue bringing mail into Phoenix over the C.P. R.,  as proposed,.when, un additional mail  over the V., V. & E. was asked for.  Our member, Duncan Ross, has sent  the following acknowledgment to J.  L. .

Next week Wednesday a musical  entertainment said to be well worth  hearing will be given in Miners' Union  hall by the Polmatier Sisters Concert  Company, under the auspices of the  Curling club. Of this company the  Fargo, N. D , Herald had the following to say:  The Polmatier Sisters.who appeared  at Stone's Music Hall last night, presented a unique entertainment, which  included all the elements cf a first  class musical entertainment, with a  bright concert flavor. Their program  consisted of soprano, cornet and trom  bone solos, quintettes, yoca! and instrumental trios, and were rendered in  a style quite refreshing and picturesque  garbed in costume, Mr, Charles W.  Hitchcock, in his d-imatic monologues, is worthy of sueci.il mention as  his work is clean and up-to-date in  every respect, and showed tor itself by  the numerous encores he received.  t^^  Richard Mansion,an employee of the  Granby mines, died Tuesday morning  at the hospital of typhoid pneumonia,  after about ton days' illness. He was  a native of Sweden, and a member of  Sandon Mineis' Union. The funeral  took place yesterday by Phqenix  Miners' Union, intenpent b.eing in the  Phoenix city cemetery.  The K. of P. of Greenwood will  give a ball on New Year's night, Jan  uary 1. -.'.?���,  .^Duncan RossjM. P., has offered a  cup as a prize for members of the  Greenwood Curling club.

Lumber having at last arrived, .work  is now proceeding with the enlargement of the curling link.  ; Tenders are being asked for by the  government for the erection of a  wooden bridge over the Kettle river at  Carson.  Murdock McGillivray, for two years  a Granby smelter employee, aged 40  and unmarried, fell dead on the streets  of Grand Forks Wednesday.

A special meeting of the Trades and  Labor Council is called for next Monday evening, December 1 Sth, for the  purposes of appointing sub-committees  for the opening ball at the new hall.  On. Thursday evening, December  12, Duncan J. Weir of Phoenix and  Miss Wilhelmma Edwarda Olsen of  Nakusp were married in Nelson, at the  residence of J. A. Howies, by Rev. F.  H. Graham.

Andrew Hackett, formerly a resident  of Phoenix, but who two years ago  earned the reputation of being the  champion coil and oil locator of East  Kootenay, recently had some suits  over the East Kootenay property,  brought by Spokane people, decided  in his favor by the Supreme court of  the state of Washington at Olympia.  This should straighten out tlie tangle  somewhat.  PUBLIC WARNING  Owing; to the prevalence  of typhoid in and about  Phoenix, all are warned  to boil thoroughly both  milk and water.  By order  CITY MEDICAL  HEALTH OFFICERS  Hon. Warner Miller, president of  the Dominion Copper Co., Ltd., has  issued a circular to the shareholders  giving the status of operations, .financially and otherwise, since the'new  management took hold. The contents  ol the circular in full are as follows:  Office of The Dominion Copper  Company, Limited, No. 30 Broad  Street, New York City, November  22, 1905.���To the Stockholders: Pursuant to the plan of-reorganization  under which The Montreal & Boston  Consolidated Mining & Smelting Com-*  pany, Limited, (hereinafter called the  Consolidated Company) conveyed its  properties to your company the new  board of directors was elected on July  28, 1905, and thereupon assumed the  management of your company.  The contemplated issue of bonds,  amounting to $700,000, was at once  consummated. Out of the funds received trom all sources, including the  bond issue, your company has paid-^i)  the balance amounting to $339,158.79  due under the so-called "'Dominion",:  agreement for lhe purchase of stock of  your company; (2) a large an./iint of  debts of the consolidated company,  which were specifically assumed by  your company; (3) the charges incident to the reorganization and the expenses of general administration; and  (4) about $50,000 for equipment, supplies, ��� labor ~and other outlays in developing the mines of the company,  and preparing to start the smelter.  The company now has balances in  bank aggregating about $115,000;-and  has mining and smelting supplies  worth about $30,000.  The assets . acquired , by, your company ^ompris^;^niong;,atrier.. proper.-  Ties,"''a "large   inajoriTyof' ffie capital  stock of the Montreal &   Boston Copper  Company,   Limited,   which owns  the smelter.    After the present   management-assumed, charge of your company in July last,   Messrs.  Munroe &  Munroe asserted against the: Montreal  & Boston Copper Company  a   claim,  amounting to about  $17,000,   for ai  leged services and   advances  to   that  company.    'I'he claim   is   being vigorously defended. 'I'he Crows Nest Pass  Coal   Company  also asserted a claim  against the Montreal & Boston Copper  Company amounting to about $20,000  for coke alleged  to have been furnished to that company   about   two  years  ago.    In addition, there heve been asserted   against   that   company   claims  amounting to about   $7,000  for legal  services alleged to have been performed by Canadian   and   New York lawyers, and other claims aggregating over  a thousand dollars.    A Canadian firm  of lawyers also demands $3,068 70 for  alleged   services   to  the Consolidated  Company.  The assertion of these claims came  as a surprise to the  present   management.    Careful  investigations regarding  them    were   a:   once   instituted.  While claims against the   Montreal  &  Boston Copper Company are  not   liabilities of your company, it is claimed,  they  are  so   far  as valid enforceable  against the smelting property, and may  have to be taken care of in some way.  Your company appointed  Mr. Samuel Newhouse as general   manager   ot  the mining operations of the company  and employed  Mr. M. M. Johnsun as  consulting engineer.      The work of developing the mining properties   of  the  company has been actively  taken   up.  The smelter of the Montreal & Boston  Copper   Company   nut    having   been)  properly cared for was found   to be in  an  unsatisfactory   condition,   and   required extensive repaiis.      It   is   not  properly located or equipped   to   treat  the  ores   economically   lor   any great  length of time.  Preparations have been  made, however, to start it.    About 50  men are now employed   at   the mines  and smelter, and when the  smelter  is  in operatic n about  200   men   will   be  employed.  It is the intention of the management, acting under the advice of the  general manager and consulting engineer, to ascertain as nearly as possible the character and volume of the  ores in the various mines, and thereupon to determine the most expedient  methods of handling and treating the  ores. In order to obtain accurate and  reliable conclusions in icgard to these  matters it seems necessary to operpte  the smelter for some period at least.  The smelter has been put in repair,  and it is expected that it will be blown  in by the first of December, and will  be capable of treating from ftoo, to 700  tons of ore per daV.  ('"roiyi time lo time the stockholders  will be furnished with reports as to the  operations ol   the   company, and   the  condition of its properties,  By order of the directors.  Warner Miller, President.  The Last Chance is now being  worked with a somewhat smaller force  of men.  Some 1,500 tons of Granby ore are  frequently hauled,- in one train by the  Great Northern rail way.  Greenwood people ,are not a little  pleased at the great enlargement announced last week for the smelter of  the B. C. Copper Co  '  An important find of ore is reported  from the Gloucester claim in Franklin  camp, by the Newby Bros., the owners.  If you are in any way interested, in  mining in the Boundary', do riot fail  to secure a copy of the Holiday Number of the Pioneer, which will ;be on  sale; Christmas week; -..'.-:.  The Molson Independent states  that C- B Bash and Mr. Hamilton; of  Greenwood, closed a.deal recently, for  the bonding of. claims near there for  the B. C. Copper Co. '���'" j  The usual quota of excellent ore is  being sent out from the Skylark regularly. The last first class car gave  $120 per ton, and the second class car  gave $55 per'ton.    ���       .;    '     >  The new spur for the Granby Co.'s  Gold Drop shipping will be located on  the C.P.R. near the Snowshoe spur,'  the surface tramway running across  part of the Snowshoe claim.  About 25 tons of. Napoleon ore are  being shipped to the-. B.'C. Copper  Co.Vsmelter daily from tbe mine, near  Marcus, the company having a bond'  on the property, Il is thought that1  machinery will likely be installed at  the Napoleon in the spring.  Two electric hoists for high grade  mines arrived in Phoenix last week  from the Denver Engineering Works.  They are now being installed. at the  Preston and Elkhorn mines by E. G.  Warren, of Greenwood, agent for the  makers.  MILLION TONS  FOR YEAR 1905  Boundary's Output May Exceed It.'  .November     Tonnage  Over 85,000.  Was  COMING AND GOING  "Early this year  it^ was anticipated  confidently   that  the Boundary mines  in   1905   would   pass lhe million ton  mark   in   ore  output,   but. when   the  Brooklyn group closed in May, on. account of the trouble of the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated,  the certainty of  this was less bright.    Since the Brooklyn group, however,   started   shipping  in November,   being   worked   by  the  Dominion   Copper Co., Ltd.- and the  Granby  Co',   is outputting now from  65,000 to 75,000 tons ol ore monthly,  the     1905     output    may   pass  .one  million tons fdrthe calendar year 1905,  if ho unforeseen contingencies occur in ���  the next two weeks, the total now being  over 880,000 tons,  and running  over  3,000 tons daily.  November's output from Boundary  mines was not quite as large as that  for October, there being a difference,  however, of less than 3,000 tons; Following are the figures in detail for November, as reported to the Pioneer :;  Mine . _,    ,'���.'..   . .

Provincial Constable Isaac A. Dins-  more, of Grand Forks, spent three  days in the city this week, making a  thorough clean-up of revenue taxes,  more popularly, or rather,  known as poll taxes. Of couise he  was warmly welcomed wherever he appeared. In one or two cases refractory contributors faced the police judge  before they came forward with the  necessary coin.

The Great Northern has been.bringing into Phoenix a railway postal car  on the passenger train for several days  this week, arid when it came in the  first time there were those who thought  we at last had'that long desired and  sought for mail service over that line.  But no; it was and is not so���not yet.  The baggage end of the car was being  used while the regular baggage car was  being repaired. It would- be a most  remarkable thing'if the' postoffice department was persuaded to "get any  such move on" as that, after being requested   so to do���even by telegraph.  However, Duncan Ross, M. P.,  gives assurance that he has endorsed  the proposition of - the residents of  Phoenix to give them mail service by  both railways���and has done it by telegraph. Let us hope it will be effective this time.  Never growl because a newspaper  fails to give every scrap of news, sp  long as you take no pains to give the  editor information. We have seen  readers who were much put out at  times because we make no note of the  arrival or departure of a friend visiting them, or of a local affair, or of the  heaven-sent babies that visit their  homes over night.

The postage bill on the Holiday Number of the  Pioneer will be  over $200, thanks to  a new ruling of   the  postoffice department of this great   and   glorious  Canada of ours.    But you   can   purchase  on the newsstand any old  paper from  any old place, and send it through the  mails at less cost   than this number of  the Pioneer.    That is encouragement  for home industries  with a vengeance,  is   it   not?     Surely,' the vagaries of a  postal department are something wonderful to behold, and no man knoweth  the cause thereof.

In five years more than 2,500,000 tons of ore have been mined and'  smelted here, with a valuation of over #12,500,000. And the'industry is',  only in its infancy.  The greatest mines of the Boundary are  at   Phoeuixr-^uQt one or. five,,  miles distant, but in front of, behind and beneath the Pioneer office.

Gi>i^beree, one  of the heavy shiwehpldersi ,^iFor the  past few weeks this stock has.been rising, and last week went from about 19  cents to 25" cents, at which price it is  now selling, says the Spokane Spokesman-Review. Steady bidding has  marked the trading. -  Speaking of the mine, at Coleman,  Alberta, Mr. Laberee said : "We are  now supplying the Canadian Pacific  railroad and smelters, and for the last  threeWeeks have been taking out 1000  tons of coal a day. We have a capa  city of 2000 tons a day. We have 100  coke ovens now and will put in 100  more in a short time. These ovens  have a capacity of 140 ions of coke  daily and are running at full capacity.  It requires one and three-fourths tons  of coal to make a ton of coke. The  coal which goes toward to the manufacture of this coke is included in the  total output of 1000 tons a day, previously mentioned. The coal there is  a soft bituminous variety. The finer  material is used foi making coke, and  the coarser is sold for fuel purposes.  "The company owns 10,000 acres  of coal land at Coleman, 50 miles east  of Fernie, B.C. Coleman itself is how  a town of about 1000 people, supported by the coal mines. I am not now  positive as to the force working there  now, but I believe that it is about 150  men.  Estlnate of 6l,M0,M0 Toot.  "Our engineers estimate that there  are 60,000,006 tons of coal in sight  above the level of the valley. This  amount will run us for 50 years. The  coal beds dip at an angle of about 45  degrees, and the mining of them is  purely a tunneling proposition. The  greatest depth we have now is 300 feet,  but by extending the tunnel we can  get a depth of 2000 feet. The coal beds  extend down below the valley, but we  are not paying any attention to the  beds below the valley at this time  The mines have been producing for  the past two years.  "Our output depends entirely on the  demand we have for the coal, and we  expect to have the demand materially  increased  in the next few years by orders for coke from the Butte smelters.  However, I believe the salvation of the  coal situation  of that country lies in  the development of the iron industries.  Discoveries of large iron deposits have  been   made  there  recently,   which  I  understand  contain   60 per cent.of a  good quality of iron.    If these deposits  are anything like they are claimed to  be, I see no reason why  there  should  not be large iron industries established  in there   in   the  next  few  years.    I  understand that an English syndicate  and Pittsburg iron people have  been  buying  large  holdings  there.   These  industries  would,   of course, create a  market for a large amount of coal."  mends Pe-rii-ma.  Senor Quesada, Cuban Minister to the United States.

At the annual meeting of the shareholders of the. LeRoi Mining Company, held in London last week Friday, the question of amalgamation was  finally brought to a vote and a showing ��� of hands revealed thac those opposed, to it'were largely in the majority. ., ��� ��� ��� #t.:  By a large majority. A. J. McMillan  was voted to the board in place of  George S. Waterlow, who sought reelection. Messrs. Drayton, Dunner-  dale and Wilson were also voted to the  board.  Sir Henry Tyler, the chairman, and  Rolphe Tyler demanded a poll by  proxies, which are to be sent in by  Friday, December 22, but it is not believed that the proxies will alter the  vote of the shareholders. About 500  shareholders were present.  Chairman Tyler opened the proceedings by advocating the advantages  of Trail as the best place for the smelting of the ores of the Le Roi. The  Trail smelter, he said, had cheap electric power and cheaper coke than  Northport. He said that diminished  ore reserves at the mine at Rossland  entailed heavy expenditure for development and if the amalgamation was  not sanctioned he saw a difficult future.  G. S. Waterlow, director, endorsed  everything that the chairman said.  The abandonment of the Northport  smelter, he said, had been undertaken  solely for economy.  A. J. McMillan, the former managing director and general manager of the  LeRoi, read letters in support of the  contention that he was dismissed as  director, not because his management  of the LeRoi was unsuccessful, but  because he opposed amalgamation.  He strongly denied that ores could be  treated more cheaply at Trail than at  Northport. Then he went into a  lengthy denunciation of what he termed an attempt to dismantle the North-  port smelter by ordering the removal  of poitions of the machinery to Trail.  THE SET J INC HEN���Her failures  have discouraged vta?iy a poultry raiser.  You can   make money  raising chicks in the right  way���lots  of  It.  So one doiibu that there is money in raising  chickens with a good Incubator and Brooder.  Users ot the Clmthnm Incubator and llrooder  have nil made money. If you sliil cliiu> to the  old idea that you can successfully run a poultry  business using the hen as a hatcher, we would  like to reason with you.  In tho first place, wo can provo to you that  your actual cash loss in eggs, which tho to liens  should lay duriup; the time jou keep .them  h.itoliiajr and brooding, will be onouch lo pay  for a Chatham Incubator and llrooder in live  or six hatches, to say nothing whatever of the  larger and tiutter results nltaine I by tiie use  of tho Chatham IneuKitor and Urocder.  If you allow- a hen to set, you lose at le;ist  eight weeks of laying (three weeks h.'itching  and tlvo weeks taking care of the chickens), or  say in the eight weens she would lay at least  three dozen eggs. Let tho Chatham Incubator  on tho hatching, while tho hen goes on laying  eggs.  Our No. 3 Incubator will hatch an many egg-  as twenty setting liens, nnd do it better. Now.  here is a question in arithmetic:���  If you keep 20 hens from laying  for K weeks, how much cash do  you lo-e If each hen would hare  laid 3 dozen eggs, and eggs arc  worth lo cents ner dozen I     .Ans.���SU.W.  Therefore, when tho Chatham Incubator is  hatching the number of eggs Hint twenty hens  would hatch, it is really earning In c.i��h im- you  $U.ln>. besides producing for yoiir proMt chirks  by the wholesale, and being rc.uly lo do  the  same thing over again tl.e moment each hatch  In otr.  Don't you think, therefore, that It pays lo  keep lhe hens laying nnd let the Chatham  Incubator do the hatching/  Thero nro many other reasons why the  Chatham Incubator and llrooder outclas-c-i  tho selling hen.  The hen sets when t-ho is ready. Tlie Chatham Incubator is always ready. By phimiing  to take offa hatch at tl.o right time, you may  have plenty of hi oilers to sell when broilers  aro scarce and prices at tho top notch. If you  depend on tho hen, your chicks will grow to  broilers just wtion every other hen'n chicks are  being markotou, and when tho price is not so  stilf.  Tho hen is a careless mother, often leading her  chicks amongst wet grass, bushes, and in places  where rats can confiscate her young  Tho Chatham llrooder behaves itself, is a  perfect mother and very rarely loses a thick.  and Is not infested with lice.  Altogether, thero is absolutely no reasonable  reason for continuing the use of a hen as a  hatcher and   every   reason   why   ynu   should..  hav�� a Chatham.Incubator nnd llrooder.  Wo aro making a very special oiler, which  it will pay you to investigate.  Small Premises Sufficient  For Poultry Raising.  The Chatham Incubator and  Brooder has created a New Era  in Poultry Raising.  The setting Hen as a Hatcher  has been proven a Commercial  Failure.  The Chatham Incubator and  Brooder has always proved a  Money Maker.  A Light, Pleasant and Profitable Business for Women  Many women are to-day making an independent living and putting by money every  month raising poultry with a Chatham Incubator.  Any woman with a little leisure time at l.cr  disposal can, without any previous experience  or without a ctfnt of cash, begi.'i t'.ie pnultry  business u:id make money right i:o::i the start.  Perhaps you have a friend who -.:���> ih>'ng so.

Of course, success depends on gulling a  right start. You must bt_-i:i ritfht. You can  never make any consider..nlu money as a  poultry raiser with hens as hatchers. You  must have a good Incubator and Brooder, hut  this means iu the ordinary way an inve-tmeiit  which, perhaps ;on are not prepared to make  just now, .-..vi 'his is just where our special  oiler comes iH.  if you are in earnest, we will set you up in  the poultry business without a cent of c ish  down. If wo were not sure that the I'h.ilh.im  Incubator and Brooder is the best ;.n-l thai  with it and a reasonable amount of cli'm-t mi  your part you are sure to make money, we  would not make the special oiler below.  2���120 Eggs  S��� 2<0 Eggs  THE CHA THAMINCUBA TOR-IU  success has encouraged many to make  more moncv than thev ever thought  possible out of chicks.
