The  union represents iS per eent of the  employees.  The vote for the strike was :as follows: Coal Creek* 49 for a strike, out  of a total of 138 employees; Morrissey,  90 for a strike, total employees 504;  Michel, 80 for strike, total employees  372. This does not include coke oven  employees," who were not interested,  but were driven from work this morning, as "well as 'he engineers, firemen  and fan runners.  The reasons for the strike are not  known as yet, 110 demands having been  made on the company. 'Ihe men were  earning excellent wajres. 1  ���,   The Union's Side.  The following is given as the statement from the secretary of the Fernie  Miners' Union j  Fernie, B. C, Feb. 11.���The situation as it stands today  is   this:    The  Morrissey mines have  been   working  under a protested wage scale since November 1 st.    The Fernie mines have  been working under  a protested wage  scale since the 4th of August last, arid  although the union has on   several occasions tiied to obtain a settlement they  have up to date been   entirely ignored  by the  management.     Realising that  nothing conjd be obtained except by a  stiike this has bven  done,  and today  there is not a, wheel turning at Fernie,  Morrissey or Michel.  Situation in the Boundary. I  The unpleasant news of the strike  finds the three Boundary smellers in  such a shape that after two- weeks, at  most, if no more coke is forthcoming,  they will be lorced to close, which in  turn will have a like effect on most of  the mines, although some development  work may be kept uj>.  The Granby smelter can be operated  tor some three weeks with the coke on  hand and in sight, and tbe Sunset and  Mother Lode smelters possibly two  weeks.  Up tq the hour of (jjoiug to press  there was no further development in 1  the situation, but it seems to be the  general impression that this time the  troubles at the coal mines will be definitely settled for a long lime to come.  The Noithport smelter has already  closed as a result of the coal miners'  strike.  hockey team went down to. fthe  Forks  by special train���they alsoWnt down  to defeat at the hands of the Smeltet  City  puck chasers,  who sproved too  strong for them, sending .igeni  down  the line in one, two, three order., This  makes two out of three games that the  local team has lost lo Grand Forks.  At the close of the game the score stood  8 to 1.   The following were^theteims:  Grand Forks-=Cochrane/ Jackson,  Mitchell, Jiwing, Niles, McQueen and  McDougall.

It  is understood that this was decided on  at a meeting of the company recently  held in Toronto, half of the proceeds  to be devoted to wiping out the indent  edness of the company, and the balance of $50,000 .to. be held as a cash  resei ve.  While the Pioneer has hot been  able to get confirmation of this story  from those locally interested in the  Dominion Copper Co., it has reason  to.believe that the above are substantially the facts in the case, the present  shareholders, of course, being given the  preference to buy the bonds.  Just what effect this financial transaction will have in getting these rich  properties into operation Once more,  or whether it will affect them at all, remains to be seen. It would seem,  however, that the event is not entirely  devoid of significance, especially when  it is remembered that the surveys of  the Great Northern into this camp  have persistently had the dumps of  the Brooklyn and Stemwinder mines  as one of the chief objective points. Ii  is currently believed that the construction of the Great Northern branch to  PhciehTx'means the'reopening-of these  l'h is week there are four patients in  the hospital, and they are all improving.

TheDominion Copper Co., Ltd., is  capitalized  at  jj5,ooo,ooo,   the  chief  eastern shareholders being Donald D.  Mann, Win. McKen?ie,   Senator Cox,  Robert  J affray, J. W. Flavelle, Hugh  Sutherland and  a few others, it being  practically a  close  corporation.    The  mines  owned   by the  coiporation are  the   Brooklyn,    Idaho,    Stemwinder,  Rawhide, Standard  and   Montezuma,  the  chief development   work   having  been done on the first   four here men  tioned, amounting  to  several   thousands of feet of sinking, raising, drifting  and crosscutting.  In 1901 James Hreen operated the  group, spending $125,000 in development and new machinery. Owing to  a disagreement with the directors, Mr.  Breen stopped operations over a year  ago, and the properties have remained  idle since. It is said that a measurement of the ore in sight iri the Brooklyn and Stemwinder mines at the time  of the closing, showed that a profit ot  $750,000 could be made by extracting  and smelting it.  Next Monday is payday at the Snow-  shoe mine for the month of January.  The ore crusher at ths Knob Hill  mine is now >unningon double shift.  The new No. 2 furnace at the Sunset smelter has been in operation for  several days, while the No. 1 furnace  is being iepaired.  At the Snowshoe the work of getting the parts of the elecfic hoist to  the new shafthouse is about completed,  I'he compressor will not be operated  by elertiiiity for some time as yet.  Twenty men are employed at the  lime quairies at Fife, being operated  by ..ihe Trail Smelter, and in the course  of a week or two shipments are to commence at the rate of two cars'daily.  The branch pole line from the Cascade sub-station   in   Phoenix  to the  Snowshoe shaft house, is cleared and  the election of the poles is being proceeded with through five feet of snow.  Last Tuesday was the monthly payday at the Granby mines, when some  325  men  received   their checks, the  to'al amount distributed in this way at  this mine alone'beingjin^the neighborhood of $30,000.  On the bond given by the Nelson  smelter on the W. T. Smith quartet  interest in the Emma, Summit camp,  $5,000 was paid in January. 'I'he  bond is on a basis of $160,000 for the  claim, or $40,000 for the quarter.  C. S. Sangster, the mechanical   man  of the Canadian Rand Drill   Co., who  are furnishing the 60 drill air compressor for the, Granby mines, has   been at  work setting up the machinery for several days, with (bur men as assistants.  J. C. Haas, M. E., has put two men  at work on the  Golconda, iu Smith's  camp, south west of Greenwood, and  ���will shortly increase the number to five.  A good deal of development work  has  al eady been done on this property, on  which there aie some  promising ore-  croppings.  ABOUT THAT  ASSOCIATION  Provisional Director Tells- of  Its Aims.'

A letter-was recently received by Aid.  'l'rotier, of (5rand. Forks, from J. B.  McArtluir, K,,(',, of Toronto, who was  formerly manager of. the Columbia  Townsite Co., and is owner of the New-  York townsite in Phoenix. Mr. Mc-  Arthur says in part:  "You ought to have good times this  year, as soon as Hill gets at his   Phoe-  A delegation of lead miners from the  nix branch.     I'read Kennedy's inter  view the other day, which is very encouraging indeed, I think Phoenix  will take a move this, year, and many  of the mines will open up in and ground  it. Graves' statement that the  Grant*)' company will pay a dividend will help things very much in the  Boundary. I'he hostility in the east  to British Columbia mining has in the  past few months largely abated, and  when the Centre Star, Le Roi and  Granby pay dividends capital will  again flow westward."  Week   Friday  at SI.  Andrew's  Church.  Last week F-ridayeveningtheannual  congregational nieeiing of St. Andrew's  Piesbyterian church was held at ihe  church building, and in addition to  listening to the reports of the different  societies connected with the church,-  officers were elected for the ensuing  year.  The statement of the treasurer, Geo.  E. Dey, showed that from all   sources  the sum of $1,937.88 had been received and spent,   with  the exception   of  $3. iS-on hand.    Of'this amount $866  was received by general  contributions  and $225 from the Ladies'  Aid.     A  statement of the assets  and  liabilities  shows that   the  church   has  property  and other assets valued  at  $6,273 18,  against which there is the sum of $1,-  956.60.    Oi this latter amount $1,400  is in tlie shape of long time loans from  the church building society, and $390  is due the bank.    The  balance of assets over liabilities amount to $4,316.  Reports were read from the Ladies-  Aid society, the Sunday  School  and  the Christian  Endeavor   society, and  the following gentlemen were elected as  managers for   the year   1903:     Isnrc  Craw ford,  A. P. McKenzie,   Geo. E.  Dey, W. W. I.owery, Duncan Mm ray,  J. \V. llannam and Mr.- Boyce.  It is the opinion of A. C. Flumer-  felt that the proposed. Mining,Association of British Columbia, for which  a general meeting is to be held at Victoria February 25 th, for the purpose  ol organizing permanently, will be one  of the best things that ever happened  in the province. At least, he sty expressed himself lo a representative of  the Pioneer, when visiting Phoenix  early this week. , *���  Mr. Flumerfelt was not present at  the provisional meeting when his-nam.e  was plat ed on the provisional directorate of the association,' although he is  n the heartiest sympathy >vjth its aims  and objects, ���   .   ���  He slates that it is not intended to  be a mine owners' association, nor will  it become the tool of any political party, as the very objects of the association would thereby be defeated.  Thus far considerable interest in the  proposed association .has been created  locally, and nearly every miner and  business man has received one of the  explanatory circulars. It is nartioi-  larly desirable that working miners  should join to safeguard their^.o,wn jn,-  terests. In some quarters it is thought  that an attempt will be made, if possi-'  ble, to work Chinese and laps in the  placer mines. With a good representation of , workingmen, this' couid  not be done. .    , ; - .-��  No public meeting .has yet been  called in Phoenix to consider the matter, but.the mayor Tray-, suggest.; some  evening next week for the purpose- As  the most cential locatiou in the cijty,  the Pioneer tenders the. use of its office  for this purpose.��� - -        ."    .:  Boundary Coal Mines.

A stalwart grinning  bobby sits upon an ordinary cane-  seated chair, while a.tln crown Is put  on his head to the accompaniment of  thunderous' peals from the great *dr-  gan, and the shrill voices of the-boy-  choir, it is one of the rehearsals preliminary to the coronation.    - -  The English sparrow, which . has  made so many enemies In the East,  has Invaded the Rocky Mountain region. For some time past, Mr. T. D. A.  CockerelL reports, It has been known  In the north-eastern section of-New  Mexico, at Raton and Las Vegas, and  it seems to be gradually spreading  westward and southward, having recently been noticed, for the first time,  at Albuquerque.  One of the bloodiest bull-fights ever  witnessed In Juarea. Mexico, was on  March 16, when Fuentes and Mazzan-  tinl, Spain's most renowned matadors,  fought six bulls to the death. Five  horses were horribly gored and killed,  or mortally wounded during the combat, which lasted three hours, and the  ten thousand people who saw the Sunday, afternoon battle had their thirst  for gore fully satisfied.  The Russian Government h as"1 undertaken " the completion of a great petroleum pipe line from the oil-wells of  Baku on the Caspian Sea to the port of  Batum on the Black Sea, a distance of  about E50 miles, following the axis.of  the Caucasus range of mountains. Several years may be required to finish,  the work,' hut when the line is ^operation it will be capable of transporting  625,000,000 gallons a year, and the Intention is to compete In the world's  markets with American petroleum.  It Is difficult to account for the enormous .velocity of some birds' flight  when migrating. The northern 'blue  throat goes at the rate of 640 miles an  hour, flying 4,800 miles from'Egypt to  Heligoland In a spring night of barely  nine hours^.Virginian plover fly from  Labrador to North Brazil, 9,600 miles,  without .stopping, going at the rate of  836 miles In an hour, and probably  more. How can this speed be attained?  "Nature Notes" thinks it is because the  birds resort to great heights, where  the resistance of the air Is slight.  Among the most Interesting experU  ments In telephoning without wires are  those of Monsieur Dueretet, a French,  scientist. He places an ordinary tele^  phonic transmitter m direct communis  cation wlthi the ground, and at a con~  .Slderable distance away, on the other  ���tde of some buildings with thick walls  and cellars, he has a receiver, connected by one wire.to the earth, and  :hy another- wire to a small metallic  sphere let down through an opening  to the floor of the catacombs beneath  Paris. When words are spoken Into  the transmitter they are heard In the  receiver with muoh greater clearness;  than In an ordinary telephone. Mon-%  sleur Ducretet Is continuing his ex-,  perlments at Increasing distances.  In many farming districts-of : the-  West the telephone is taking the place,  of the newspaper in certain directions..  With the spread of the telephone -to.  farms has come about what the company calls a "news Eervice." At a  given hour every evening���seven o'clock  is the time In most communities���the-  central operator calls up Its long line:  of subscribers .and reads oft to. them',  as to one man. the Important happenings of the day. First the 'official  Washington time Is given.; so . that  clocks may be regulated, and thea  come the weather quotations for the;  next twenty-four hours. Market quotations of farm commodities alwaya  follow, so the subscriber in South Dakota knows what his butter sent last  week to New York, Chicago or Boston  sold for that day. This one feature  alone Is changing the markets for certain farm products, and swinging them,  for Instance, from Boston to New York,  and vice versa. Important new4 of  national moment is also telephoned"  briefly without bias, and thus the  twenty minutes devoted to this news  service is filled out.  1 00  $2.00  3 00  1 00  2 50  (2 01  4 01  3 01  2 fit  :i 0i  ice  PHOENIX, H.
