There were a good many cheerful  people in Phoenix on Christmas eve,  when it was announced definitely that  the Grand Forks Smelte'rmen's Union  No. 18o and Phoenix Miners'Union  No. 8 had definitely arranged to resume work at the Granby smelter and  mines the day after Christmas, and  that, as soon as possible thereafter, the  entire works of the Granby Co. would  be operated to the fullest possible  capacity. For several weeks the matter  had been hanging in the balance, and  there was practically nothing doing at  either the company's mines or smeiter,  both having been closed since early in  November, r  A number of conferences had been  held during the previous days with A.  B.;W; Hodges, local manager of the  Granby Co., in regard to accepting the  wage scale offered by the Granby Go.  early in December. This scale was  practically a reduction of 50 cents per  day over that paid when the works  closed some weeks before. Last Wednesday week the two unions took a  referendum vote on the question. For  several days the details of the vote  were withheld, only the statement being  given out that by the combined vote of  the two unions the new scale had been  turned down by a majority of 47.  Later, however, the details were  given out, which were that in Grand  Forks 135 had voted) against and 35  for acceptance, and Y.thut in Phoenix  177 had been for and 129 against the  new scale���Phoenix;thus accepting it  and Grand Forks turning it down.  After the conference's, however, a new  vote was taken last.'Tuesday afternoon  in Grand Forks, when but 30 votes  wercrecorded against, and the vote  was then made unanimous   to accept1 for  business, valves, jackets, etc., hav-  senting themselves at the Granby mines  for employment, but that day only  about 25 were taken on, it being an  impossibility to at once put in shape  an organization that had been "shot to  pieces" for a couple of months. However, the next day something like 75  were at: work,; and every day now will  see the force augmented till the old  furce of over 500 men is once more  hewing in the bowels of the earth hereabouts.  Extra shifts were put at work getting  the big 6o-drill compressor   in   shape  Y    Annual Meeting ol District No  6     '  , NextYWednesday, January is't, the  annual'.''meeting of District No. 6,  Western Federation of Miners-', will  begin its session at Greenwood. "This  district includes all the metalliferous  miners' unions in British Columbia.  In the list are the unions at Rossland,  Trail, Nelson, Sandon, Kaslo, Slocan,  Moyie, Kimberley, GrandY Forks,  Phoenix, Greenwood, Boundary Fails,  Hedley, Silverton, Camborne, Lardeau,  Ymir, Kamloops, Britannia, Grofton,  Mt. Sicker and Texada. A. Shellnnd  of Sandon, is the secretary.  The delegates have already been  chosen from Phoenix union, which  from its large membership, is entitled  to nine, the delegates being. M. ('���  tVade, John Mclnnis, John M elver,  D. J. Ryan, Marcus Martin, \V. S.  Cook, VV.'j. Louttit, M. C. Jewel, and  J. C. Halsey. Matters of general  interest to the unions will come'-up  for consideration, and the meeting  will likely last till near the end of the  week.  the new scale. The scale is practically  that now paid in Rossland and other  parts of British Columbia, and the  same as paid here a yfjar ago.  Christmas eve and all day Christmas  there was a glad look pn the faces of  miners and citizens generally at the  prospect of work bejng resumed at  once in the largest producing copper  mines in the province) or in Canada,  and continuing uninterruptedly from  this on. In (act, njany celebrated  pretty strongly both thkt important announcement, when it-was known to be  a fact that -night;-ancfc the Christmas  fertival also.

This work was to have been  partially completed last night, when  one-half of. the compressor could be  set in motion, thus supplying power to  the machine shop, blacksmith shop,  pumps; machine drills, etc. By New  Year's day it is expected that.ore shipments can be started once more, and  as the smelter is well supplied with  coke, b few days thereafter the entile  battery of eight furnaces should be in  blast, turning out copper as usual, and  giving employment there to over 300  more men  It was certainly a pleasant Christmas  box for Phoenix.  ���  ANNUAL REPORT  OF E.

Martin for the best criticism of  the ad of the Carney Copper Co. in  the Pioneer. On account of the possibility of still receiving replies dated  December 24th, the award will not be  announced till next week.

Many Little Ones were Made  Happy.  This week if there was a child in  Phoenix that was not made happy, the  name of such a one is not known to  those who had in charge the three  public Christmas trees-���to say nothing  of the trees in private families.  Monday evening" the ���.Presbyterian'  Sunday school held its annual Ghrist-  smas festival, ; it taking the form of a  cantata, in which the score of children participated did-exceedingly' ^etlj  under the direction of R: HiYMcCam-  mon, who drilled them in their ambitious effort. The church was crowded  to the doors,.and_SantaClaus, impersonated successfully by Arthur" O  Bouterious, was on hand .and: distributed the many presents' arid gifts to  the youngsters and elders, too.  Tuesday evening the Methodist  church was filled to the utmost for the  Christmas tree entertainment, an interesting and pleasing programme being  rendered by tlie Sunday School scholars.  Once again there was.a large number of  presents to make the little ones happy.  Much pains was taken to have the children well versed in their patts, with  the result that they performed most  creditably.  Thursday evening the Scandinavians  held a Christmas festival in their hall  on Old Ironsides avenue. The elders  and the little ones were all there in  force, enjoying the festive occasion to  their fill. A nice lunch was prepared  by the ladies.  Citv Court of Revision.  The municipal court of revision of  the voteis'list for the year 1908, sat  last Saturday afternoon and adjourned  till Tuesday of this^week, when Mayor  Matheson and Alderman Roderick  were present, together with the city  clerk, M. M Stephens. There were  few or no alterations made in the list  as prepared by the city clerk and submitted to the board. Election will  occur about the middle of January.  The voters' list this year, when it  appears in printed form, will be found  to have about double the number of  names that it had last year, when  there were 1 79 registered voters, This  year the list totals over 300 names.  Running a Long Tunnel.  Thomas Oxley, Jr., superintendent  for the Columbia River Gold Mining  Co., at Myers Falls, Wash., was here  over Christmas, Mrs. Oxley returning  with him the next day. Mr. Oxley  says he is driving a long tunnel on the  Roosevelt, one of the claims of the  group, it being now in over 2,000 feet.  There is also a 350 foot shaft on the  property, the ore running from eight  to twelve per cent in copper alone.  Tbe property has an air compressor  and Mr. Oxley has about 15 men  under him. The dump is on ground  thai is held at   $150   per  acre as fruit  land.    Two Had Fractures.  George Hewson, of the Granby  office staff, had the misfortune to fall  some 20 feet from the porch of the  Victoria house, fracturing some ribs.  He was in the hospital several days,  but is now out and about once more.  Last week Rev. C. Wellesley Whit-  taker fell on the steps of the Methodist church and had his collar bone  pulled out of place. He was also in  the hospital a few days, but was able  to get out in time to attend the Christmas tree festivilities at his church  Tuesday evening.  "Bonnie Brier Bush."  In Kirke La Shelle's production of  "The Bonnie Brier Bush" "which  comes to the Phoenix opera house.  Monday, January 6th, we are to ��� be  entertained with a charming play; in  which Scotch life is portrayed with a  simplicity of treatment, together with  a delightful combination of dramatic  intensity and rich humor, such as is  rarely found in the latter day performances. Ian McLaren's tales of  Scotch folk have proven one 'ofthe  most successful and interesting boon  dramatizations now being used for  stage purposes. The role of the old  Scotch elder, Lachlan Campbell, has  been pronounced by prominent critics  a '-.masterpiece in character creation,  and one of the most notable in the  history of the drama. A company of  metropolitan players, including many  ofthe original cast and a beautiful  scenic production are promised.

On the part of the company, it is  doubtful if it can earn.four per cent on  its' capital at the present price of  copper���12 to 13 cents. If it does  not earn that jnuch, it is certain that  shareholders will net get much of a  return for their investment, when they  have been receiving 12 per cent for a  year,(aJ,tho.ugh.for. seven or eight years  they re^eiyed^nothing).

C. MINING J  The Whitewater mill has now reduced its output to 280 tons daily.  Six carloads of lead were shipped  last week from Trail to San Fransisco.  Kootenay and Boundary ore shipments for 1907 amount to about i-,  600,000 tons.  In the Similknmeen a rich strike  has been made on the 500-foot level  of the Stemwinder.  Representatives of F. Augustus  Heinze have been busy examining the  coal and copper deposits near Port  Simpson.  Tlie Mayflower mine at Rossland  which lias been passe (or many years,  brought the present lessees of the  mine $600 clear on one car of ore.  Interest is reviving in the Rossland  south belt and it is quite certain that  the opening of spring will see a number of properties  operated on a lease.  ��� Andrew Colville, superintendent at  the Coal creek mines of, the Crow's  Nest Coal company, has resigned, and  will be succeeded by Robert Strathern.  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were: Centre Star, 4,652 tons; Le Roi,  2,084 tons; Evening Star, 30 tons;  total for week, 7,427 tons* total for  year, 278,052 tons.  Since the putting in of the ten new  stamps ' at   the   Queen     mine   near 1  During November 564 tons ofore  were shipped through Kaslo.  The Vancouver mill near Silverton,  has passed through an average of 1500  tons of ore for the past nine months.  This month it is working a shift and a  half and will handle upwards of 2400  tons. . -. :',.  Arrangements have been made for  the shipment of 900 tons of zinc ore  from the Vancouver mine in the Slocan district, to Antwerp. This is the  first zinc shipment from that district  to Europe. The rate given is $13 a  ton;       ���''"���.  Mackenzie & Mann are said to  have bought the Venus mine, in the  Windy Arm section of the White  Horse district, for $60,000. It. is a  goldi and silver property, and-the new  owners intend to erect a concentrator  and operate the Venus on a large  scale.  ^ About the middle of February the  Canadian Zinc Co. expects to have its  plant at Nelson completed and in  working order. The plant is designed  for electric reduction of zinc,: the first  of its kind on, the continent,, although  a similar plant is working, successfully  in Sweden.  A. M. Johnson has obtained an  order accepting the offer of $50,000  cash tor all the assets of the Last  Chance Mining company, allowing the  liquidator remuneration of $2,000 and  arranging for the payment of all liabilities. It is understood that the parties  making the offer constitute the new  Last Chance company, and that work  under the new company will go right  along, with Mr. Pratt as manager.

TRAIL SILVER FOR  CANADIAN MINT.  juii  Finished   Shipment ol  2S0.000  Ounces  to Ottawa.  The Trail smelter has just finished  a shipment of 250,000 ounces of  silver to the new Canadian mint for  the subsidiary coinage, says the Rossland Miner. S.ome of the eastern  newspapers when the nihil was first  opened stated the mint would have to  (���o outside of the country for their bar  silver as there was none ol sufficient  purity in Cinada. The requirements  of the mint are for bars .998 fine.  The shipment from Trail is better,  tliun 999 fine, that is, 999 parts in a  1000.

Kernie got a $.-0,000 Christmas  plum at Ottawa, in the way of public  building appropriation; Cranbrook,  $7,000  There are fully 5,000 unemployed  in Vancouver turning handsprings for  meals. The city is establishing a  bread line.  During the past seventeen, months  9,000 Japanese, 1,000 Chinese, and  over 3,000 Hindoos have arrived in  British Columbia.  It has been decided to hold the  annual bonspiel of the Kootenay  Curling Association at Nelson this  year, in January or February.  Last week Thomas G. Earl of  Lytton, the oldest fruit grower in  British Columbia, picked luscious  grapes and strawberries in his orchard.  Judge W. J. Nelson, the well known  Rossland barrister, died at his resi  dence in Rossland last week, aged 46,  the cause of death being heart failure.  J. R. Anderson, deputy minister  of agriculture, has authorized the organization of a farmers' institute in  the Cranbrook-Fernie farmers' institute  district.  In 1901 there were 7,430 acres in  fruit in B. C., with about 640,000  fruit trees. In 1906 there were 49,-  000 acres in fruit, with a grand* total  of 2,700,000 fruit trees.  Think Copper Ouilook Belter.  The Boston Commercial, in a recent  issue, has the, following to say regarding tl.e copper situation:  "From a number of developments  that have occurred in the past few days  in the smelting circles of this city  there are indications that the worst, so  far as the copper situation in this  country is concerned, in the present  curtailment have been reached. While  the improvement may not be perceptible  for some time the impression in smelting circles seems to be that a change  for the better is coming. It is known  that orders have been issued to several  of the large copper producing . companies which have recently shut down  their output, that if the present more  cheerful outlook continues they will be  allowed to increase their shipments by  the latter part of December. Should  this temporary improvement show any  signs of weakening by that time those  orders,   of  course,   could  be  easily  countermanded. ,  "The silver lining in the dark cloud , to hold themselves  of the copper situation," says Mr. | open at fuU blast by  Rothenberger in his letter, "is now  perceptible to a degree that leaves very  little doubt as to what the next six  months will show. By this we do  not wish to claim a boom or a big  speculative move, such as was witnessed a year ago; but the turn has  come and the next six months should  show higher prices for copper stocks  that are in'a position to earn money  on a fair copper market.  "Those   who   are    in   touch    with  the copper market; will' tell you that  the three first months of Ihe year  beginning with January are always  noted with the placing of particularity  large copper metal orders. The prospect of this buying materializing in  1908 is all the better by'virtue ofthe  fact that domestic consumers have  been waiting for some months to  jump in and buy when they could  reasonably feel that bottom had been  reached.  "As 50 per cent; of this country's  copper mines have been slim down  for several months, and because those  thatihave still kept running- have cut  dow'rftheir output" 50 per cent, therr-  is bound to be a shortage of the metal  as soon as the buying in'large lots  commences. The surplus of 150,000,-  000 pounds now waiting on the market can be sold in less than one week's  good business.  "We have knowledge that a number  of the largest mines in the west that  have been shut down have been told  11 teadinefs to  the end of December. These orders have been  issued in the regular course of business,  and preparations to enforce them will  begin immediately. They argue that  a' dearth of copper would create a  rapid scale of advancing price, thus  creating a corner and disturbing trade  in general."

The small sum of two bits (25c) per  month takes the Phoenix Pioneer to  any postoffice on earth.  The Phcenix Pioneer will not issue  its Annual this year owing to the enervated condition of the copper market,  says the Greenwood Ledge. Thus the  world loses another good thing by the  excessive prevalence of hard times.  Last week the first meeting in  connection with the organization of  the Kettle Valley Farmer's Institute,  took place at Grand Forks, on petition  ofS.T. Hall, and others to J. R.  Anderson, deputy minister of agriculture.  McDonald & Loftus, the first product of whose new sawmill, about  three miles from Phoenix, was furnished here, say they have contracts to  last for a year.  According to report from Victoria  plans for the new bridge over Kettle  river at Rock Creek have been prepared, and work on the structure will  be rushed. The iron work will come  from New Westminster.  Bmter'it  Philosophy ��� XIII.  Resolved, That a person can suffer  more from nightmare than real pain,  whelhtr he is awake or not. A thing  doesn't have to be real to cause suffering. If you tell a well man that his  house has burnt down and his family  is dead, he'll suffer just as much as  though it were true, until he finds out  you were fooling him. Some folks  live night mares, they live in fear  of something all the time; afraid of  the future. Don't they know the  future is the result of the present?  The financial hog and trust glutton  will get spiritual indigestion and the  chronic worrier will get wrinkles: the  man with the violent temper will get  iheumatism or something, and the  good, temperate man will be happy  and contented; its a cinch.  When to Qo Home.  From the Bluffton, Ind, Banner:  "When tired out, -; go home. When  you want consolation, go home.  When you want fun, go home. When  you want to show others that you  have been reformed, go home and let  your family get acquainted with the fact.  When you want to show yourself at  your best go home and do tbe act  there. When you (eel like being extra liberal, go home and practice on  your wife at.d children first. When  you want to shine with extra brilliancy  go home and light up the whole household." Tu which we would add, when  you have a bad cold go home and  take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy  and a q-iick cure is certain. For sale  by all druggists.  ���Sww-rg'itnUatioftiend sufotitfdo.

Stevens  Editor and Publi.-her  36     POSTOFFICE     BLOCK,     HOUGHTON,  MICH Hi AN.  Mr. Isaac Brock, 117 Years Old Last Birthday  ISAAC BROCK, a citizen of McX,en-l  nan county, Texas, has lived for 117 1  ears. For many years he resided :-.-.  Bosque Falls, eighteen miles west o!  Waco, but now lives with his soii-in-  law at Valley Mills, Texas.  Some time ago, by request, Uncle  Isaac came to "Waco and sat for liis  picture, holding in his band a stick  cut from the grave of General Andrew  Jackson. Mr. Brock is a dignified old  gentleman, Bhowing few signs of decrepitude. His family Bible is still  preserved, and it shows that tho date of  hi*- birth was written 117 years ago.  Born before the  United States ���  were formed.  Saw 22 Presidents elected.  Pe-ru-na    has'   protected   him j  from all sudden changes.  Veteran of four wars.  Shod a horse when 99 years  old.  Always conquered the grip with  Pc-ru-na.  Witness in a land suit at the  age of, 110 years.  Believes Pe-ru-na the greatest  remedy of the age for catarrhal  troubles.  IN speaking of his good health and  extreme old ago, Mr. Brook says:  "After a man has lived iu the 'WorMl.  as long as I have, ho ought to bar*  found out a great many things by ���x-  porienco.   I think I have done so.  "One ot the things I have found  out to my entire satisfaction ts the  proper thing tor ailments, that  are due directly to the effects ot  the climate. For 117 years I have  withstood the changeable climate  of the United States.  "I have always been a very healthy  man, but, of course, subject to tbe af-  foclions which are due to sudden  changes in the climate and tempera*  tura. During my long life I have known  a great many remedies for coughs, cold* "  and diarrhoea.  "As tor Dr. Hartman's remedy*  Peruna,;/ have found it to be the  best, If not the only, reliable rem*  edy for these affections. It has  been my standby for many years,  and I attribute my good health  and extreme old age to this remedy^  "It exactly meet* all my require"  monts, It protects me from the evil effects of eudden ohauges j it keeps m* in  good appetite; it gives me strength; it  keops my blood in good circulation. I .  have come to rely upon it almost entirely tor the many little things *e*r  which I need medicine.  "When epidemics of la grippe first  began to make their appearance in this ,-  country I was a. sufferer   from UUa  disease.  "I had several long sieges "wtth-"  the grip.   At first I did not know -  that Peruna was a  remedy lor  this disease.    When I beard that  la grippe was epidemic catarrh, I,  tried Peruna   for la grippe aad  found It to be Just tbe thing."  Iu a later letter, Mr. Brock writeet  "I am well and feeling as well as I  have tor yean;  The only thing that'  bothers me is my sight.   If I could see -  better I could walk ail over the  and i t would do' me good.   I would �����  be witho-at Peruna."  Toon truly,  When old age comes, it brings  it catarrhal diseases.   Systemic cataiTsi  is almost universal in old people.  explains why Peruna has  Indispensable to many old 1  D. J. Matheson  3naurancc Hoent  I��IDI3L,ITY     BONDS.

When that is done I expect  to see copper go back to about 16  cents per pound, and that is enough.  At that figure consumption is possible  on a large scale, and while it will not  permit all the mines to resume on the  old basis it will still furnish employment for a large proportion of the  men who have been thrown out of employment by the recent slump."  mm hips mi  QUARTERLY DIVIDEND.
