A new crusher is being installed  at the Boundary Falls end of the  Number Seven mine tramway and  as a result there were no shipments  from that mine this week.  The British Columbia Copper company has called its annual meeting  for February 14th at Charlestown,  West Virginia, for which the books  were closed Feb. 3 and will re-open  Feb. 15.  The British Columbia Copper  company's smelter treated 8,984  tons of ore this week as follows :  Mother Lode, 4,919; Jack Pot, 315;  Rawhide, 3,157 ; Napoleon, 593.  The low tonnage this week was the  result of cold weather.  FAREWELL DINNER  TO CHAS. D. HUNTER  Pioneer   Merchant   Leaves  for  the Coast Saturday  GRANBY GO'S OUTPUT  DURING YEAR 1910  Gross Value of Copper, Silver,  and Gold $3,635,191  Details of the operations of the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power company for the calendar year 1910 shows a production  as follows:  Copper, lbs 20,018,048  Silver, oz 355,997  Gold, oz 44,130  Assuming an average price of  12.8 cents per pound received for its  copper and 53.486 cents per ounce  for silver (the accepted averages),  Granby's gross income from these  two sources may be estimated at  $2,752,591. In addition the gold  yield of 44,130 ounces at $20 per  ounce would swell the gross income  to $3,635,191. " *���  Estimating the cost for the calendar year at 10)4 cents, an operating  profit, of slightly more than two  cents a pound resulted, equivalent  to $460,392. The company paid a  dividend of $1 on 148,000 shares in  December.  With   eight   furnaces   in    blast,  which the company will endeavor to  On Friday evening of last week,  on the eve of his departure for the  coast, Charles D. Hunter of the  Hunter-Kendrick company was tendered a farewell dinner at the Hotel  Brooklyn by two score ofthe representative business men of the city.  Although somewhat ' impromptu  the Brooklyn put up a splendid menu,  the banquet taking place after the  hockey match. A. S. Hood made  an excellent toastmaster and with  happy comments called on a number  present to respond to toasts. "The  King" brought fourth the National  anthem and W. Delahay responded  with well-chosen words. With an  eulogy by the toastmaster "Our  Guest" was the keynote for the  singing of "For He's a Jolly Good  Fellow," followed by hearty drinking  of the'toast. Mr. Hunter expressed  his pleasure in the unlooked-for  honor which those present had done  him,, and J his- appreciation of their  kindness; be "had enjoyed the years  he^had spent in Phoenix as the result of cordial and. sterling frendship_  and although leaving permanently  he would look forward with pleasure to renewing frendships by occasional visits.

Rumberger, Dr.  Dickson, G. L. McNicol and T. A.  Love also-made responses on various interests. Each paid a high  tribute to the excellent qualities of  the guest of the evening both in a  business way and socially and one  who had done much for the town.  The banquet concluded with the  singing of "Auld Lang Syne" and  wishing Mr. Hunter success.  Mr. Hunter left Saturday for Van  i       Prospects for New f Rink  ! i  The prospects for a new skating; j  ! and curling rink in Phoenix for next j  winter have been considerably, improved by the splendid record which  the local team has made in winning  the.Boundary trophy as there suit of  superior, clean'hockey.  At a meeting of the city council  Wednesday evening, Alderman G.  W. Rogers was the champion of the  new rink proposition, which The  Pioneer has - been endeavoring to  launch, and all the other members  of the board appeared heartily in  favor of giving substantial assistance towards the building.of a.new  rink. While the matter was only  discussed informally, the council  may be depended on to give probably $500.  Aside from this amount The Pioneer has been assured . of contributions to the extent of about $500 for  shares in a corporation to build a  rink and when the movement takes  definite form there is no doubt the  necessary amount will be forthcoming.  HIDDEN CREEK MINE  LOOKING PROMISING  O. B. Smith Returns from Trip  r.   of Inspection,     r:.  DROPS TO DEATH IN  GOLD DROP MINE  '&',-.  Gus Martin Loses His Life on  Wednesday Evening-  An unfortunate accident occurred  at the Gold Drop mine on Wednesday evening, when Gus Martin, a  Finlander,* lost his life.  He was carrying steel and was  crossing a narrow trail and becoming unbalanced fell a distance of 20  .feet and rolling about 75 feet further  down the stope, rock and the steel  following him. He received several  bad bruises, one on his head probably causing instant death. The  accident - occurred about four o'clock.  Coroner Black of Greenwood held  an inquest on Thursday afternoon,  which after hearing the evidence returned a verdict of accidental death.  The funeral takes place this (Saturday) afternoon at two o'clock from  Edward's undertaking parlor to the  city cemetery.

One of these holes was,driven from  the main.tunnel and located,ore at a  depth of .800 feet from, the surface.  .A feature of the property is that  the facilities permit of cheap mining  of ore at depth by open,cuts.  Cross-cutting is  being .,continued  in the main tunnel, where   a second  ore body has been struck, at a dis-  tahce- of -850   feet   and -is' looking  very promising.

By   courteous   surrender   of -his  rights as   responsible   minister,   the  ^.Strathcona Park bill  was passed  by  Lands 'Minister   Ross    to   Finance  Minister   Ellison,-    who   gave    the  'House   a  graphic   and   fascinating  verbal   picture' of this   new   scenic  ' Avondefland;' while urging that with  the experience of Switzerland as an  object lesson,' the government would  be indeed remiss  in' recognition   of  ' its responsibilities to the present and  ' future   generations   of   British Co-  r lumbiahs were it not to do all things  possible to make this   vast   natural  playground known to' all   the world  and easily accessible to tourists who  in a fe<v"short years may beexpected  to visit it in hundreds of thousands  yearly.  The upper lakes and  rivers of the  Buttle Lake section were spoken of  as containing  276  square   miles of  lakes,   rivers,  waterfalls,   mountain  peaks,   glaciers and primival forest,  all   which   has  been   set   apart   as  Strath'cbha Park.    These,   said the  Minister, were certain   ere   long   to  win world-recognition as the greatest of all trbut-fishihg Edens;   while  it was mentioned as  illustrative of  their number that the several waterfalls   pouring  themselves  into this  one   interior   lake   "if   harnessed,  would develop sufficient  energy   to  operate all industries of British Co-  lombia for centuries to come."  j  Campbell   river falls,   said  Hon.  Mr. Ellison, in themselves constituted a great and' even now accessible  attraction,'- wifhiiV'a few'hours' drive  from 'steamer .connection ' at Campbell River- mouth ��� an attraction  worthy of continental1 attention,- the  immense volume of water carried by  Campbell river descending in one  wild leap,isheer .135' feet* crowned  with a double rainbow,- iwhile veiled  in mists rising* beyond the fir tops.  Itis^ the intention of the   government, the Minister explained, forthwith to provide Strathcona Park with  communication    facilities^      Works  Minister Taylor having already despatched engineers to lay out a motor  road connecting with  the  Campbell  river road at Mclvor lake.

I thornthwaite's    motion    for   second  reading   of  the   bill  to   amend   the  Workmen's   Compensation   Act���a  motion distinctly contrary to the Constitution of the Provincial House inasmuch as it involved  material   and  direct inroads upon the .revenue and  therefore might only originate   with  a   Cabinet   Minister   and  reach  the  House by Message from His Honor.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite was by courtesy permitted to enunciate the principles of his measure,   which   he did  with marked   moderation . and   fairness,   afterwards    withdrawing   his  motion���its    purpose    having   been  served.  In brief the proposal was to have  limited   compensation   to   workmen  sustaining injury   in   the   course of  their employment, paid  by the state  out of the .public lunds,  the government   subsequently    recouping   the,  treasury by collecting   from the employer should he have been at fault.  Various   disadvantages   and   incongruities under the present law were  cited in support of "a forward movement"-, and it   was   also   suggested  that if the government could not at  present accept  the   principle of the,  bill as offered, it  might   beneficially  appoint a commission to investigate  the conditions prevailing   under the  present law and to   devise a remedy  for  grievances,    providing   for   the  equitable adjustment   of  compensation in limited amount in the   event  of workmen suffering serious injury.

The Premier, replying-, commended   the   Socialist   chainpibn   for his  marked   moderation,   and gave him  all credit for the present Compensation to Workmen Act.     It   was the  intention ofthe   government,   Hon.  Mr. McBride announced, to improve  the present law (which has   not,  as  had been, prophesised by  its opponents, worked havoc  with   industrial  conditions) during the  next   session  of    Parliament,    and   meantime   it  might be found advisable to appoint  such   a   commission   as   Mr.   Haw-  thornthwaite   suggested���in    which  event labor would  have  due   representation thereon.  First on the orders  as the certain  ���text of enlivening debate during the  coming week   is   Mr.   Hawthornth-  waite's   motion  (for   which   explanation is found in  the   recent   execution in Japan of Japanese revolutionary   Socialists)    condemning   in set  terms the continuance of any alliance  between Great Britain and   "a government capable of such unspeakable  barbarity."    Although   this   resolution is certain to   be   hotly   debated  by the Socialist members, it is by no  means likely to obtain   endorsement  by the House, going (as it does) far  beyond   the   legitimate   scope   of a  Provincial Legislature���in fact being  ultra vires of the functions and   responsibilities   of  British   Columbia's  Parliament.

The  farmer will  set a slashing fire that  will  destroy,  hundreds of thousands  of acres of  adjacent timber, the development of  which would bring railroads   to   his  doors, build towns  and cities in his  vicinity,  increase   his   markets and  enhahcethe value of his land.    The  *_  camper will;likewise, leave carelessly  a tire to destroy :at its pleasure, property whose.loss will be felt,by an .entire state.'!  More and more each year, as this  province    develops,    manufacturers  and mines must depend upon electric,  power,   agriculture upon irrigation;  both power and   irrigation   in   their  turn upon   regularity of water supply.     So also does the navigation of  our rivers   and   the   propagation  of  our most important fish-the salmon.  Following this   thought,   we find  the steadiness of water   supply   depending   upon   the   maintenance  of  forest-cover; indeed the whole future  of  British   Columbia   is   contingent  upon her forest policy.  As a mere matter of dollars and  cents, we must educate our people  to take intelligent care of this great  inheritance. We must conduct a  campaign against forest waste similar to the war we are waging through  our schools against that form of  human waste���tuberculosis; we must  begin with the young.  Permit me to suggest that every  school teacher in the province should  be provided with literature upon the  subject, and the initial step might be  taken by the Department   of  Lands  TO NEW S  PHOENIX PIONEER  .

On some adjoining- land two men have been clearing- one acre,  per day.    ���_ "     ���' . ?  * Those who came in later Have taken up all the land available  without regard to the growth of timber. Most of the land will  cost at least $25.00 per acre to clear, and a great deal of it has  been sold at $16.00, making the cost over $40.00, while the land  we are now offering will cost after March first, $15.00, and say  $5.00 for clearing, total $20.00.    But this is not all; an immediate  , crop can be raised and large prices secured during railroad construction. -   One crop of hay should pay for   the   land  four or five  ��� times'over. Knowing at the time we secured the land that the  rush was coming, a:ncl that if we did not get it then it would be  too late, we took-- more than we can finance without, difficulty.  Consequently we are asking the low figure of $t��2>50 per  Acre.

MOTHER AND TWO CHILDREN AT  MUSKOKA FREE HOSPITAL.  Are Now Under Treatment��� Husband,  Too, Had Been a Patient���A Tra��  gedy In Real Life���Heavy Debt o*  Institution.  A story from ihe Muskoka Free Hospital  for Consumptives tells of a mother who,  with her two children, is now under treatment in that institution. The husband had  been a patient, but the case was an ad>  vanced one when the patient entered, and  he has since passed away. There is little  doubt but that the wife was infected as a  result of caring for her husband, and now  she is in the Muskoka Hospital. Her little  girl, about five years of age, and a boy of  ten are with her, both being afflicted with  this, dread disease.  The words of the mother are pathetic.  She writes: ** I went to a doctor and got  him to examine my lungs to see whether  there was anything wrong with them, and  he said that the right lung was affected.  A little rest, he hoped, would buikl me up.  I have a little girl, about fire years old, und  the doctor says that if I could take her  up with me it would do her ever so much  good, as she is not very strong. I have  three more children, and one of these, a  boy of ten, seems also to be afflicted, and  it is advisable that he should enter the hospital."  These three are of the 104 patients who  are residents in this deserving institution  and being cared for without money and  without price. The sorry part of it is that  the trustees are carrying a debt of hoiuo-  thing like $40,000, incurred largely through.  the additions that have been made within  the (last year, and that have more than  doubled the accommodation of the institution, together with the heavy cost of maintaining so large a number of free patients.  Readers who desire to help this great  charity may send their contributions to Mr.  W. J. Gage, Chairman Executive Committee, 84 Spadina avenue, or to the Secretary-Treasurer, 347 King street west,  Toronto.  The Muskoka Free Hospital has ever lived up to its claims of never having refused  a single patient because of his or her  poverty.

But why all this barking a hun-  dred miles away. If the Nelson  hockey team really think they are'in  a class with the Boundary teams let  them take a jaunt over this way and  we feel satisfied that any one of the  three teams in the Boundary league  will give them a run for their money,  and then some. Just wire when  you're coming and the band will  meet vou.

Curlers Trim Grand Forks  Returning last week too late for the  Boundary  curling bonspiel at Grand  Forks,   O. B.  Smith  thought that he  would like to have a game with Grand  Forks curlers.    On Monday he drove  down with G. L.   McNicol,   P.  Boyles  and G. Ellis and put it over a crack  team composed of R. J.Gardner (skip),  N. L. Mclnnes,   A. S. McKim,  and F.  Russell.

The Telephone Fire Alarm  Editor Phoenix Pioneer:  Dear Sir:    In view of your comment  on the fire alarm system of Phoenix in  your last issue, we must say that we  are very sorry  this  trouble has happened, but we think that if a proper  set of rules  were made by  your  fire  chief, and at some set time during the  day (say at noon) a proper test was  made  between  the  fire hall and  the  Granby boiler room,  and any  defect  reported to   our   office,   this   trouble  would not take place.     This 'is a rule  followed   in many cities and   should  work satisfactorily in  Phoenix.    It is  absolutely necessary that the fire chief  should co-operate with  the telephone  company to make the system good.  Yours truly,  British Columbia Telephone Co. Ltd.  A.
