We will be  glad to  see you*  sunset is A  GOOD MINE  Surprise    to    the    Dominion  Copper Co.  Rawhide   Mine   is   Looking  Splendidly.  Two claims of the holdings of the  Dominion Copper Co., among the  others, are showing up remarkably well  with extensive development. Both the  Sunset, which was the nucleus of the  original holding company, the Montreal and Boundary Creek Mining Co.,  and the Rawhide mine in Phoenix  came, 'are Icoking particularly well.  Much more satisfactory results, in fact,  are being obtained from the Sunset than  was ever anticipated by the ^present  management, and the property will  probably be equipped with a small air  compressor.  The following report, regarding the  Sunset" group, Deadwood camp, was  given out in lhe east:  "The Sunset mine of the Dominion  Copper Co. group,of properties; which  until recently was considered valuable  principally as a flux in smelting the  company's other ores, due to the per  centage of iron winch the Sunset ores  carried, is turning out to be a very  valuable property, its ores now carrying in addition to the iron an increasing percentage of copper.  "When the present management  took control of> the Dominion Copper  Co., the Sunset assays showed the ores  to carry .5% to .6% copper, with gold  and silver values enough in addition  to just about cover the cost of mining  and smelting, making this ore very valuable as a flux to the other ores  secured from the company's other  mines, the Rawhide, Brooklyn, Idaho  and Stemwinder, adjoining those of  the Granby Co. mines at Phoenix.  "The Sunset ores are now running  1.14% in copper, and the outlook is so  promising that engineer M. M. Johnson has laid out a system of development for the whole property.  "The Sunset is grouped with the  Crown Silver, the C. O. D. and the  Florence Fraction, all of which belong  to the Dominion Copper Co. and adjoin the Mother Lode, which is the  principal producer of the British Columbia Copper Co. Development  work is now being commenced on all  these properties. They are located on  the Canadian Pacific Railway, within  about six miles of the smelter. The  showing now being made by the Sunset is a pleasant surprise to the management."  Qreat Showing at Rawhide.  The extensive outcrops of ore found  on the Rawhide claim have been  proved at depth by means cf several  tunnels which have opened up im  mense bodies of ore, the limits of  which have not yet been found.  Na. 3 tunnel, where drifting on the  ore deposit is now going on, has  proved the existence ol the ore bodies  to a depth of some four hundred feet  below the outcrops.  In No. 4 tunnel eight hundred feet  of development work has been done,  all of which is in ore, and the size of  the bodies on this level are not yet determined.  Stopes have been started on this  level which will yield hundreds of  thousands of tons, and will in all probability break through to surface,  when the ore will be mined by the  "glory hole" method.  In the No. 3 pit, which is the latest  outcrop developed by the company, ���*.  face of excellent chalcopyrite and magnetite ore is exposed for a length of  one hundred and fifty feet and a depth  of forty feet.  A tunnel is being driven to cut this  ore body at deptii, and it is confidently  believed that this ore body will prove  to be as large as others encountered  on the property, and of a grade which  is fat above the average of Phoenix  ores.  Altogether, the recent development  at the Rawhide mine has proved that  the Dominion Copper Co. has in that  property a most valuable mine, and one  which will hold its own with any claim  in the camp in upholding the fame of  Phoenix as a mining camp of mam  moth ore bodies.  W. R.  WILLIAMS  FOR CITY  CLERK  Termorary Appointment Made  by City Council.  Last Wednesday the last meeting of  the city council in the year 1906 was  held, those present being Mayor Rum-  berger, and Aldermen Oxley, Brown,  Kane, Marshall and McKenzie. Arrangements were made for the holding  of the city elections, and the clerk  ordered to post notices in several  places and publish same in the local  paper. W. R. Williams was appointed  returning officer, and as D. J. Mathe-  son's resignation as city clerk takes  effect on December 31st, Mr. Williams  was temporarily appointed to that position. The nominations will be held  on January 13th and the polling, if  any, will take place on Thursday, January 17th.  Applications from W. D. Lawson  and M. M. Stephens were read for the  position of city auditor, and Mr.  Lawson was chosen to do the work for  1906.  The resignation of D. J. Matheson  as city clerk was accepted- by the  council with regret, and a vote ot  thanks tendered Mr. Matheson for the  very efficient manner in which he has  filled that position for the past three  or four years. A. B. Hood, was appointed as temporary city treasurer.  After approval of the following accounts bv the finance committee, they  were ordered paid :  M. Ii.

Held  Boundary Mining Notes  00  00  00  00  00  25  RAILWAYS ARE  NOW TO BLAME  For  Coke   Shortage  Boundary.  in  the  Output of Three Smelters Being Curtailed.  Unless the railways successfully  make some effort to relieve the car  shortage situation in the Boundary,  some of the district smelters will find  it necessary to materially restrict the  tonnage now being reduced. In fact,  the situation is becoming more and  more acute daily, as it is more and  more apparent that the railways lack  the power to move cars.  The particular shortage is in moving  the coke fast enough to keep the  smelters in blast. All of them are  running from hand to mouth, as it  were. One day this week the Granby  smelter did not have sufficient coke on  hand to last a couple of hours even,  when a little relief was had. It is the  same with the Dominion Copper Co.'s  smelter at Boundary Falls, and the  B.C. Copper Co.'s Greenwood smelter  can operate but one fnrnace on this  account. In fact, the management  finds itself busy to get coke enough to  run one furnace, let alone the other  two, which are now all ready for blowing in. It is scratch, scratch, scratch  all the time to secure coke enough to  do any business at all. The Snowshoe  mine yesterday had 24 cars of ore at  the B. C. Copper Co. smelter, that  could not be imioaded because the ore  could not be used in the congested  condition ofthe smelter as regards ore  supplies. The same thine; applies, to  a greater or less extent, with the other  smelters.  There seems to be coke enough now  at the collieries, but the railway companies can either not get cars enough,  or they cannot furnish the power to  haul the cars. Either way it is working a decided hardship on the mining  and smelting industry in the Boundary,  and should be remedied in some manner at once.  Official announcement has been sent  out from Victoria that the legislative  assembly has been dissolved by Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir, and that  an election will be held on Saturday,  February 2d next, the nominations to  take place on Saturday, January 19th,  just two weeks previously. At the  same time comes the statement that  Hon. R. F.Green, chief commissioner  of lands and works in the cabinet, has  handed in his resignation. Writs for  the election have been sent out, and  the battle of the ballots will soon be  on in earnest. In some ridings nominations have already been made, in  anticipation of early elections, and in  others they will be made with as little  delay as possible.  While the Liberal organs of the  province have been saying that they  expected an election any time in the  last year, the announcement of its  being called undoubtedly finds them  unprepared for the fray. However,  they are getting ready as fast as possi  ble, and are reported to have pursuad-  ed William Wallace Bruce Mclnnes,  governor of the Yukon, who has just  been on a trip to Ottawa, to ' take off  his coat and give them some much-  needed help. Mr. Mclnnes is not  new to British Columbia politics, and  along with Joseph Martin, who always  keeps things lively when he takes a  hand, he will likely do a lot of electioneering in the next few weeks. Joe  Martin is leaning towards -the labor  vote, but that does not fool many.  The Conservatives are well organized in almost every part of the moy-  ince, and'tncyioolc i<jf victory, arid an  endorsement of the administration of  Hon. Richard McBride.  FOR CANDIDATE  IN THIS RIDING  First  Hockey   Game.  In the initial game of the season,  Phoenix went down to defeat at the  hands of the Greenwood Hockey team,  the score beiug 3 to 2, wh-'ch is a fair  indication of the play. Considering the  fact that the Phoenix boys have bad  no practice this winter, they did re  markably well. Lafferty at point and  Robertson at cover played a star  game. Wade in goal, stopped some  hot ones, while the forwards, Mc  Queen, Carmichael, McKelvey, Law-  son and Cole played a speedy game.  Greenwood" "Weary Willie" was the  star, and time and again he made  some brilliant runs, only to lose die  puck to I^afferty. Greenwood will play  a return game here next week.  SherMno-Labelle Wedding.  At 6:30 Wednesday morning a pretty  wedding was celebrated, when Miss  Lena Labelle and Victor M. Sherbino  were united, the ceremony being per  formed according to the rites of the  Catholic church by Rev-. Father J. A.  Bedard. Miss Labelle had Miss Edith  Jewell, of Grand Forks, as bridesmaid,  while Joseph Labelle, brother of the  bride, supported the groom, the wedding taking place at the residence of  the bride's parents, at the Cottage  hotel. The bride and bridesmaid were  dressed in white, and after a wedding  breakfast, the bridal couple left on the  Great Northern train for Spokane, on  a wedding trip, and will settle clown  to housekeeping on their return here  next week. Mr. Sherbino is the local  manager for P. Burns & Co., and is  also secretary of the Phoenix General  hospital, anci has many friends here,  while the bride is also favorably known  here to a wide circle of acquaintances.  The Phoenix   Steam   Laundry Co.,  Ltd., has been gazetted at Victoria.  Conservatives   Choose Today  at Grand Forks.  This morning the Conservative convention, to nominate a candidate to  contest Grand Forks riding in the  forthcoming provincial election, will be  held at Grand Forks,  Wednesday evening the Conservatives of Phoenix met and elected officers as follows : President, W. R.  Williams* vice-president, W. X. McDonald; secretary-treasurer, A. S.  Hood. Matters relating to the coming  campaign were discussed, and it was  the unanimous opinion that with a  united front the Conservatives could  win in this campaign in this riding,  and all over the province, as they did  in the last provincial elections. The  following were chosen to attend the  nominating convention today in Grand  Forks: O. N. Galer, W. X. McDonald, C. H. Flood, William H. Dock-  steader, R. B. Boucher, W. R. Williams, D. Oxley, G. L. McNicol, Isaac  Crawford, A. S. Hood, J. O. Church,  Palmer Cook and W. J. Pierce. The  alternates selected were : G. W. Rum-  berger, D. B. Morkill, G. E. Dey and  J. A. McMaster.  Phoenix is entitled to eleven votes  in the convention, and some of the  names mentioued in connection with  the nomination are E. Miller and D.  Whiteside of Grand Forks, and G. W.  Rumberger, of Phoenix. Whoever is  the nominee of the convention, it is  certain that the rest of the delegates  will pledge themselves to give him their  hearty support.  President Mark F. Madden, of the  Providence Mining Co. is expected to  arrive iu Greenwood early in January.  1 he tonnage from Boundary mines  is somewhat curtailed this week on account of Christmas, when most of the  miners were given a holiday.  Granby Consolidated's fifth dividend  is payable next Monday, December  31st, and amounts to $4c 5,000, making a total of $1,753,000 paid to date-,  by this company in dividends.  At ��he Mountain Rose, Summit  camp, ore bunkers are being constructed on the C. P. R. spur, with a long  trestle and tramway, which will entirely do away with the wagon haul which  has heretofore been necessary.  Report comes from the Similkameen district that reprsentatives of  the Dominion Copper Co. have taken  a bond on the No. 14 group of copper  claims on Copper mountain, some nine  miles from Princeton. The claims are  owned by Emi! F. Voight, and representatives of the bonder are'expected  out there soon to make arrangements  for some exploratory work.  ���  D. M. Mcintosh, for several years  shiftboss at the LeRoi No. 2, in Rossland, has been selected as .superintendent of the British Columbia Copper  Cp.'s Mother Lode mine, he having  arrived at the mine this week. S. C.  Hoi man, who has had charge there for  several years, gives up his position on  the 31st inst., and will move to Spokane, where his parents live.  With the end of 1906 Boundary  mines will have shipped a grand total  of approximately 4,645,000 tons of ore  in six and a half years, with an estimated value of $25,000,000, and having an estimated coppei contents of  100,000,000 pounds p.s a minimum.  In 1906 the Boundary production of  copper is estimated at close to 30,000,-  000 pounds, figuring on an average recovery of 25 pounds to the ton of ore.  CONTEST FOR  MAYOR'S CHAIR  G. W. Rumberger and  D.  Matheson in the Race.  J.  City Election to be Held January J 6th.  ence, ,  around  McLeod Held for Trial.  '--> miirnincr -Jaclt    MoPcnllj,  *J, who was under the influ-  116*.yed Norman McLeod  from one place to another,  trying to make trouble. McLeod kept  away from him, but McDonald came  on him unawares and struck him. in  the face. At the time McLeod had  his knife out and made a pass at McDonald, the knife penetrating McDonalds stomach slightly. McLeod gave  himself up to the policej while McDonald was taken to the hospital,  where his injuries are not pronounced  very serious unless some complications  set in.  McLeod was arraigned Thursday  before Police Magistrate Williams, being defended by solicitor McLeod, of  Greeenwood. Testimony of witnesses  was heard, and it seemed plain that  McDonald was the aggressor,' but the  judge could do nothing but hold McLeod for a higher court.  This year there promises to be an  interesting contest in Phoenix for the  mayor's chair, the announced candidates thus far being Mayor G. W.  Rumberger and D. J. Maiheson, who  has been city clerk for several years  last past. Both men are evidently in  the fight to win, and the friends of  both are now busily engaged in taking  stock of the voters' list, which was certified to by the court of revision and  printed and issued this week. The  voters' list has 173 names on it this  year, just about the same as last.year,  in addition to which there are 16  names of those outside the city limits  who are entitled to cast votes for  school trustees only.  Apparently there will also be full  aldermanic tickets in the field in both  the east and west wards, and a canvas  is being made of the aldermanic timber  available. Some members, at least, of  the 1906 council will stand for.re-election, while others do not wish to have  their names put up again. No definite  announcements have yet been made  regarding candidates for councilmen,  and they may not be made till the day  of nomination, two weeks from next  Monday.  On account of the change in the  municipal elections act, by which the  voters' list was closed earlier this year  than last, there are quite a number of  citizens who failed to register and get  their names on the list.  Thus far rhere does not appear/o be  any-cuiiWst for the position of "fihool  trustees.       Sloiln? Christmas Carols.  About two o'clock Christmas morning a party of some 30 Cornishmen,  mostly from the Mother Lode mine,  arrived in town, and proceeded to serenade a number of places, singing  Christmas carols in front ofthe various houses. Foreman Sampson, of  the Brooklyn mine, was one of those  favored in this way at his residence,  and like a true Cousin Jack, it was appreciated by him as well as by others.  It took them back to old times in the  old country when this was a regular  custom.  Latest Prices in Metals.  New York���Copper, electrolytic, $23.-  50@*23.75;  lake.  -523.50 @ $24.00.

Double Masonic Installation.  ���Thursday evening a double Masonic  installation of officers took place in  Masonic hall in Phoenix, the officers  of Greenwood Lodge No. 2Sand King  Edward Lodge No. 36 being inducted  to office by District Deputy Grand  Master George E. Dey. About 20  Masons from Greenwood were present,  and the lodge room was crowded with  members of the craft. Following the  ceremonies all sat down to a supper  provided in the banquet room of the  lodge, and a most pleasant social ses  sion was held. New officers of the  two lodges who took office on the festival of St. John the Evangelist, were :  {".REKNWOOD.      OFFICE.      PHOENIX.  li, G. Warren...Master...J. J. Strutzel.  fas. W.

If they have a strong man in view for  legislative honors, he is yet to be  named.  Nosr, the Pioneer  is   hself something  of  an   optimist,  and   notwithftanding  the production of 1,175,000 tons   be  foro 1006 is   finally closed, we   hardly  look for an increase of nearly  100 per  cent  in  our  output   in   1907.    This  year showed an approximate   increase  of 40 per cent over 1905, and a similar increase m the year  to come will  give us   a total  of say 1,500.000 for  the next calendar  year.

Christmas Dividends.  j     Dividends   and   interest    disburse-  j ments on Canadian   secumies  durinj-  ] the present month will   aggregate   two  and one-half million dollars, says the  Rossland Miner.     No less than   four-  1 teen of the thirtv five chartered   banks  ' will pay quarterly or   halt-yearly dividends, amounting to upwards of  $i,-'  6oo,coo.    Many industrial  companies  will pay interest on rapital   stock  and  on bonds, while the Granby and  some  of the Cobalt companies will pay dividends amounting to large sums.  Then there are a   large  number  -of  close coiporations, whicn never publish  their divindends, and these combined  will swell the list probably 10 310,000,-  000 for the month.     This shows how  prosperous the country is, and to what  large    proportions   the  financial,   industrial and   mining corporations are  growing.    The   shares   of   these corporations are held by many thousands  of people,   some   owning   a   few   and  others   thousands   of   shares   of   the  stock.    Toe dividends will be a  great  help to all who receive ;hem in   making Christmas pleasant for   themselves  and their friends.  King of Ail Cough Medicines.  Mr. E. G.

Ball  Christmas night Phoenix Lodge, No  28, Knights of Pythias, gave its sixth  annual ball at the opera bouse���and  it was cne.of the most successful events  of the season, the hail having rarely  had a larger crowd than on .this occasion. The music was all. that could  be desired, furnished, in. the best style  of the James and Biner orchestra.  Some.of the dancers from the outside  were from Greenwood, Midway, Eholt,  and Grand Forks, and they all voted  having a most, delightful time, the committee in charge leaving nothing undone for their enjoyment. Supper was  served at Deane's hotel aboutmidnight  and dancing was kept up "till nearly  four.thenexi-mornVrif;.      r"   F~^~~~0T.  Greenwood Lodge, No. 29,"iC of  P., will give a ball���they call it the  seventh annual���on New Year's eve.

C.���*"  Hlltioi tbe Nail on tbe Head.  The Nicola Herald has a concise  aud lucid editorial on the subject ni  "Better Terms," from which ihe fallowing paragraph is taken. It sums  up the situation admirably :  "The question, of '.eiicr term-; i.-  being thoroughly muddled by the Liberal press of this province. -Tlu-y Miy  it is not a party question, and then  with all their puny miuht they tvvisi  and turn motives and statements to  suit their own ends, and in many cases  make raih statements the very reverse  of true. The statement that the  Premier refused the grant of $115,000  per annum is a gross libel and has  been done purely from political  motives, and it says little for the cause  which it is supposed to represent, when  the Liberal press continue to publish  these misstatements, and try to decry  the attitude of the premier on a question in which he should have the  whole souled support of everyone in  the province."

MATTERS OF   INTEREST   TO   THOSE   INTERESTED  COPPER   MINING    INDUSTRY  ���*<4* *��-5-<* *>������<* 0(0   l?W*  Tbe Situation.In Copper.  President    Sherman,  of   the    coal  miners'unions in the Crow's Nest Pass  country, seems to be finding his star in  the decendant of late.    He is  being  repudiated by his own people, for alleged sharp practice and   wire   pulling  in union affairs and union elections,  and is  credited  with  being  the  sole  cause of the recent strike in that section.    If these  are  facts, the sooner  he joins the down and  out  club   the  better  for  the  laboring men  in   the  Crow.  There is great interest ,in copper today, because the industry is of great importance in mining and in its effects  on. business in general. Twenty-five  years have passed, says the Mining  World, since the copper industry was  as prosperous as it is today. The  record high prices current in 1906  have been due to the extraordinary demand, which indicates a consumption  in excess of the production both here  and abroad. A suggestion that the  market will continue high indefinitely  is made by producers who have sold  copper for future delivery at prices  that approach the schedule of the famous French syndicate which reached  its zenith in  1880.  In 1906 the extreme quotations for  Lake copper at New York were i8|4  to 23^6 cents per pound. Production  by these mines for the nine months  ending with September is estimated at  168,891,200 pounds, as against 166,-  162,480 pounds in the corresponding  ���-o ��**-*��-<�� rs��*-c�� ��r>-��^*�� �����>���������<'�������������� tr"*-.*--*"* ��r>-��-<=r�� ��->��o ��*>������<-���*�� ��-*-����  ?

The electrolytic copper industry has  shared well in the country's prosperity,  and after years of ups and  downs  the  Atnagamated Company's shareholders  again receive dividends at the rate of  8 per cent per annum.    Production in  the Butte district is growing rapidly,  and for the first   nine   months  of the  current year the quantity is calculated  at 279,338,954 pounds.    To be sure,  Montana will again occupy first  place  as a copper producer, although Arizona  is  making a strong fight.     Electrolytic  copper sold this year at 18^   to  22^  cents per  pound   in   cakes, and   wire  bars   f. o. b.   New   York.     Dividend  payments   by   six   Montana, one Tennessee, one  Utah  and one  Wyoming  company, for the ten months to October this year amount to $29,810,403,  making a  total of $96,241,314   since  incorporation on an outstanding share  capital of $260,761,400.

Believes Pe-ru-na the greatest \  remedy of the age for catarrhal I  troubles. J  IN speaking of liis good health and  oxtromo old ago, Mr. Brook Bays:  "After a man has lived in tho world  as long as I havo, ho ought to  have  found out a great many things by experience.   I think I havo done so.  "One ofthe things I have found  out to my entire satisfaction Is the  proper thing for aliments that  arc due directly to the effects ot  the climate. For117 years 1 have  withstood the changeable climate  of the United States.  "I have always been a very healthy  man, but, of course, subject to tho af-  fccl ions -which aro due to sudden  i hungcd in tho climate and temperature. During my long lifo I have known,  a groat many remodlcs for coughs, colda  and diarrhoea.  "As for Dr. Hartman's remedy,  Peruna, 1 have found it to be the  best, if not the only, reliable remedy for these affections. It has  been my standby for many years,  and 1 attribute my good health  and extreme old age to this remedy.  "II exactly moots all my requirements. It protects mo from tho evil effects of sudden changes; it keeps me in  good appetite; itgives mo strength; It  keeps my blood in good circulation. I  havo como to rely upon it almost entirely for tho many little things for  which I need medicine.  '���When epidemics of la grippe first  began to make their appearance in this  country I was a sufferer from this  disease.  "/ had several long sieges with  the grip. At first 1 did not know  that Peruna was a remedy for  this disease. When 1 heard that  la grippe was epidemic catarrh, I  tried Peruna for la grippe and  found It to be just the thing."  In a later letter, Mr. Brock writes:  "I am well and feeling as well as I  have for years. Tbe only thing that  bothers me is my sight. If I could see  better I could walk all over the farm,  and It would do me good. I would not  be withoat Pernna."  "   Yours truly,  d^V    .elktrefi..  When old age comes, it brings with  it catarrhal diseases. Systemic catarrh  is almost universal in old people, Tbia  explains why Peruna has become so  Indispensable to many old people.

The harder you  work, the more you worry, the more Iron you require.  But Crude Iron won't do. Iron Pills, Iron Tinctures,  Iron Tonics are useless in nineteen cases out of  twenty. You must have pre-digested Iron or your  blood will not assimilate it.  FERROL  furnishes the Iron you need in combination with Cod  Liver Oil, and so intimately incorporated with the  oil that the most delicate digestive organs cannot  fail to assimilate it.  The value of the combination cannot be overestimated. It builds up and fortifies the system against  Coughs, Colds, Bronchial Affections and kindred  troubles. If any of these diseases have already  been contracted, or if the lungs are affected or  threatened, FERROL cures by enabling nature to  throw off the disease, not by " killing the germs,"  which is a physical impossibility.  FERROL is an absolute specific for Croup and  Bronchitis, and no household where there are children  can afford to be without it.  PERROI. is not a patent mystery. The formula is freely published. It is prescribed by  the beat Physicians. It is endorsed by lhe most eminent Medical Journals. It is used m  prominent Hospiuls, Sanitariums, etc.  J.  8.

Last week Friday the first session of  the court of revision was   held   at   the  city council chambers, to consider objections to the voters' list for 1907 for  j the city.     Mayor Rumberger and   Al-  l dermen Kane and Oxley were on hand,  I and a number of others including Revs.  Whittaker   and   Lundie, and   William  Delahay.     Mr. Whittaker objected   to  ja number of names  on   the   list,   and  [one, tint of   Roderick   McLeod,   was  I struck ( fT, as lie had not been residing  ! within the city limits since January 1st.  I     The court  met   again   on   Saturday  land on Monday at the same time   and  ! place, when it adjourned. Mr. Delahay  'objected to the name of   M. li.   Roy,  j an old resident here but who   has been  ! in business  in   Greenwood   for  some  l months.     Mr.   Roy   appeared   in   his  ! own behalf, stated that he kept a room  ! here all the time, was frequently   here  ! to occupy it and   considered   Phoenix  ! as his residence.    After threshing the  j matter out and listening  lo   testimony  j and arguments, the whole tiling seemed  to hinge on the interpretation of what  'constitutes a '���residence" within the  j meaning of the law. The name was  ���finally certified to and allowed to stand  I and the list certified to and ordered  ! printed.  %  2 Phoenix-  -*-,��.��<-j.1-<vj.r.*.-jw<-tf<o.i: �����<-*��������< ���<���<���*  Greenwood  Stage Line  Leave Phoenix    -  Leave Greenwood  9*3��  a. 111.  - Standard Time  -2-3�� P* mJ  Prompt Attention to Express and Freight.

[__ _ _^  From now on, now that a provincial  election has been announced for February ad, we shall be regaled with a  rehashing of the various things that  the McBride government has left undone, to say nothing of a few that they  have done that they should not have  done. Of course, this will all come  from the opposition press, and those  papers will lose no opportunities to  dish the stories up in new forms. But,  remember, intelligent reader, that these  same papers will forget all about how  the McBride government found the  country in the worst possible financial  shape, with poor credit at home and  abroad, and also that the contrary is now  the case. And for this, lhe Liberals  of the province cannot take one ounce  of credit. Mr. McBride and his advisors have done something that no  government in this province had been  able to accomplish for years. Make a  note of that, while you are reading of  what terrible fellows they are.  �������  Those rainbow chasers who have  had a weather eye on Prince Rupert,  the new Grand Trunk Pacific terminal  town, will not be made any happier by  the announced statement that lots in  that sure to he-boomed town will not  be placed on the market till next September. But, about that time, look  out for a rush to Prince Rupert���it  will be in the line of a record breaker.  �����  Far away mineralflelds have a most  attractive appearance, and the knowing  ones seem to be able to make good  often in those places, among the many  who have failure to the credit, but who  do not advertise that fact, naturally.  In Cobalt camp, that has had such a  sensational rise, a number of old  Boundary people have done business  to advantage while the tide was at the  flood. I. Robert Jacobs, formerly of  Greenwood, is said to have made a  pile there. T. H. Rea, of the Betts  and Hesperus, is spending some time  there, and he is said to be doing so to  advantage, while Alex Miller, who  grubstaked so ne men to go to that  locality, has lost nothing by the deal.  These and others who have been  through two or three British Columbia  booms, will probably be wise enough  to make hay while the sui; shines and  clean up while they can.  ���11  Al McKinney, who was the discoverer of the Cariboo mine in camp  McKinney, was recently in Phoenix  and decidedly down on his luck, being  without funds of any kind and suffering from a cancer in his face. A number of friends and acquaintances of  this locator of one of Boundary's  dividend payers made up a subscription list of something like $150, and  McKinney went on a trip to a point in  Missouri, where he could be treated  and possibly cured of his terrible affliction by one who has been rarely  successful with cancers. It is to be  hoped that the old man will return  cured.  L. A.  KETTLE RIVER VALLEY LANDS.  Doull  Invest  Campbell   and   W  W  $90,000In Them.  Early last month W. W.

Mr.  Campbell intends 10 impiove nr<l subdivide the properly at an eaily date.  It is also his intention to exp-.-iininii  carefully with a system of irrigation hy  means of pumping, and the woik  which he contemplates doing in this  direction will be of immense value to  the district.  An "AIbo Ran" Liberal.  A. B. Docksteader of Nelson has  decided to contribute $200 to the pro  vincial treasury.

Next Monday shareholders of the  the Granby Consolidated are due to  receive their fifth dividend, amounting  to a total of $405,000 paid at this  time, or a grand total of $1,753,000  paid to date in profits by this company.  As a New Year's gift this will, of  course, be welcome���but it is still  more valuable from one standpoint,  because it cements the belief, justified  by the conditions prevalent, that this  company will be able to contiuue this  sort of thing for a long time to come  ���and further, that it is not the only  Boundary company that will be in the  dividend paying class. Think of a  shareholder receiving in one dividend  more than his original stock cost him,  and having had no assessment in the  meantime, either. And that is exactly  the case with some of the Granby  shareholders, who have stayed with  their holdings to this day.  Certificate of Improvements.  NOTICt*.

Gangrene  setting in, it was found necessary to  amputate his leg in an effort to save  his life. This was done Monday, but  he passed away in a short time afterwards. Jones had been in camp four  or five months, having arrived here  direct from Wales, and having a number of friends here, Wm. Yolen Williams, of Spokane, being well acquainted with the man's family. When  bruised on December 18th, he was  very fearful of the result, though the  physicians did not deem it very serious. The funeral was held Friday,  Rev. Whittaker, of the Methodist  church, officiating.  TEN BIG  ACTS  J. W.���SMITH���MATTIE  Mimical Act  TOM LANGSTER  Ti.e Mou With TnlW.  THE LEAMORE   CHILDREN  AcrubulH,  EDITH���HENRY���LEE, JR.
