The following regarding the Mon  treal & Boston Consolidated appeared  in the Boston News Bureau of January  25th.  ./���'���;' '"-���'���$.���'���'���'*,  The failure of Messrs.* Munroe &  Munroe, the fiscal agents in New York  for the syndicate which underwrote  706,000 shares of stock of the Montreal & Boston Consolidated Mining  & Smelting Co., at $r per share, has  not directly involved that company.  The facts are that the Munroes, with  their Canadian associates, had sue  ceeded in purchasing the Dominion  group of properties in Phoenix, B. C,  because of a disagreement between the  owners, James Breen, of Spokane, and  Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann. Cash  to the amount of $482,000 was to be  paid for the properties, $266,000 down,  and the balance, or $216,000, payable  in eighteen installments of $12,000  per month. At the same time they  paid $60,000 for the Athelstan property upon which $10,000 is still due.  then the underwriting syndicate, in addition to providing cash for the purchase of these properties was to place  $150,000 cash in the treasury for  working capital. The above would  have required the raising of $700,000,  which was represented by 700,000  shares of stock underwritten a $t per  share.  In addition to. that,. 300,000 . shares  ol'stock in the new company were giyen  to stockholders of the old Montreal &  Boston Co., on the basis of..one share  of- new for two "shares of oid stock;  300,000 shares of stock was also given  for other properties .acquired on ��� a  slock basis, - which' accounts for the  total capitalization of the company at  1,300,000, par $5 or $6,500,000.  i The first cash payments'have been  met and the directors of the com  pany, who are not associated with  Messrs. Munroe & Mnnroe, say that  the payments for the properties will be  met as they fall due irrespective of the  financial difficulties of the company's  fiscal agents in New York.,  The Dominion properties of the  Montreal & Boston group are valuable  and there has teen a desire in Boston  to see them fall into the: hands of the  Granby Co. The property, however,  is well able to provide the remaining  payments out' of its earnings, for in  addition to properties capable of a  large ore tonnage, it has a good smelter with two furnaces in operation and  a third now in course of constiuction.  Operations were only carried on  three months last year and with one  furnace there was produced 900,000  lbs. of copper, 1000 ozs. of silver and  3200 ozs. of gold.  Beginning with the new year, however, a second furnace was placed in  operation so that the company is now  producing about 600,000 lbs. of copper  per month, which should net it about  $25,000. A third furnace is about set  up. It is planned to add a fourth  furnace during the year which would  permit of a monthly production of  1,200,000 lbs. of copper.  Col. Geo. Pope, of the Pope Mfg.  Co., is president of the company, and  the directors include C A. . fish, of  G. A. Kissam & Co.,Alexander Davidson, a member of the New York stock  exchange firm of John M. Shaw & Co.,  and Mr. Loomis, formerly vice-president of the National City bank. This  is an influential board.

Report has it that the new ore body  on the Mother Lode, so far as explored, is 320 feet long and 140 feel  wide.  Upwards of 70 cars of ore daily are  now being .taken out of this camp by  C.P.R. ��� This is likely to be increased  shortly.  This week tbe Skylark sent out a car  of second class! ore, to the Granby  smelter, and will 'probably ship again  this month.  R. C. Longtey, foreman at the Car-  mi, on the West Fork, was in the city  this week, tbe mine having closed for  a few days.  Near Anaconda the St. Lawrence is  being developed by Charles Peterson,  who has s .70-foot shaft and some  drifting done.    >  Wm. L.

According, to a compilation of the  Greenwood Times, the high grade  mines of the Boundary shipped 270  tons of ore last month.  A Colfax, Wash., syndicate recently invested about $15,000 in shares of  the Strathmore,1o.ne>of the. high grade  mines near Greenwood.      ":""���  . At present the Granby smelter is  operating but five furnaces; but k'is  the intention to blow in the sixth soon  if the power can be arranged for.  Early this week a report was prevalent that. the coal miners' strike at  Coleman had been settled. Such,  however, unfortunately, is not the case.  The British Columbia Copper Co.'s  smelter has been once more utilizing  its steam plant, while there has been a  partial shortage of electrical power from  Cascade.  A deal is about completed for the  Greyhound, a Deadwood camp property, a company having been floated  in the old country to take hold and develop it.  Four West Fork mines are shipping  this winter by hauling the ore some  50 miles to Midway. They are the  Carmi, Sally, Butcher Boy and the  Rambler.  ��� Some rich ore has'" been struck in  the shaft of the Paymaster fraction,  near Mid way v.' This property is being  developed by George R; Naden, of  Greenwood.  A Greenwood syndicate, organized  by W. H. Jeffery, M.E., has purchased  the Simplex claim, near the Skylark  mine, in Skylark camp, the transaction  being on a cash basis.  Yesterday, was the monthly payday  at the Granby and Montreal & Boston  mines. The two companies are esti-,  mated to have distributed about $75,-  000 in wages at mines and smelters.  Corrected figures regarding the  metal output of the Granby Co. for  1904, as published, show that 13,431,-  226 lbs. of copper, 47,96s ozs. of gold  and 180,844 ozs of silver were produced, which at the average prices for  the entire year gave gross returns of  $2,781,637.  Monday morning at six o'clock the  second furnace at \ the Montreal &  Boston's Boundary Falls smelter was  blown in, and no further interruptions  to its continued operation are anticipated. This means an inciease of the  force employed at the Rawhide under  Foreman Dan Bresnahan.  Apparently, it is a warm winter when  the Phoenix curlers do not bring back  a bunch of prizes or trophies from the  annual lionspiel of the Kootenay Curling Association, and this year was, after all, no exception to the rule. When  the stone and besom experts returned  last Tuesday from the Nelson bohspiel,  they were;loaded down with ho less  than three of such prizes, namely, first  prize in the Walkerville open' competition,' which was won by the rink  skipped by Dr. Boucher; first; prize in  the Hudson Bay trophy, won' by ihe  rink skipped by Isaac Crawford, and  second prize in the Consolation, won  by Mr. Crawford's rink.  The two rinks attending from Phoenix Curling Club were as follows:  C. L Thornber, lead     C. H. Reeves  G.E. Dey, second      A. Strachan  G. L.McNichol, vice       J. A. Morrin  R. B. Boucher,   skip I. Crawford  From what the returning curlers say,  they must have had,the time of their  lives, or at least, one of the times.  They had good weather, good ice and  certainly a good time all around, in; the  week they were gone. Iii all the open  events there were 25 rinks entered in  competition, and in the closed events  each club was represented by one rink  ���in the case of Phoenix this being  the Crawford, rink.   .  The Phoenix curlers wish to express  theif/appredftiori^.of.the courtesies.-ax*  tended them .by, the people and. the  curlers of Nelson,.and hope some time  to be able to reciprocate, when the  bonspiel can be held in Phoenix.

Last Saturday a bunch of Great  Northern officials came up to Phoenix  over the new line in a special train,  the private coach of President James  J. Hill being one of the cars. In the  party were B. Campbell, fourth vice-  president; F. I. Whitney, general. passenger agent at St. Paul: H.A. Jackson,  passenger agent at Spokane; W. VV.  Broughton, St. Paul; H. A. Kennedy,  assistant superintendent, of Seattle; S.  G." Yerkes, general western passenger  agent, at Seattle; J. C. Eden, assistant  general traffic manager, of Seattle, and  R. C. Morgan, superintendent of all  lines north of Spokane. With the party  as guests were J. P. Graves, manager,  and A. B. W. Hodges, superintendent  of the Granby Co.  For several of the gentlemen it was  the first trip to Phoenix, while the faces  of others were familiar here. They  were looking over the new line, prep  atory to opening it on the 26th inst.,  the date now announced���if it is not  changed again.  Mrs. George L. Elkins and  family returned Saturday from a  month's stay with relatives at Seattle,  Wash., they being glad to get away  from the continuous fogs and mists df  the coast.  An effort is being made by the Grand  Forks Board of Trade to secure thesame  freight rates from the east to Boundary  points as are now enjoyed by points in  the Kootenajs, the actual rail haul being shorter to the Boundary.  The Rathbone Sisters and the  Knights of Pythias will give a "Fan  Ball" in the Grand Forks opera house  on the evening of the 14th of February,  St. Valentine's Day. The committee  is sparing no effort to make this n<  feature a grand success.  At the regular communication of  King Edward Lodge No. 36, A. F  and A. M., held Thursday evening, a  pleasant feature was the presentation  of a past master's jewel to William G.  Fraser, who was master of the lodge  two terms, as a token of esteem from  the members. .  The chief of police informs the  Pioneer that he will carry out to the  letter the instructions received this  week from the. police commissioners  regarding the keeping of minors from  visiting bars and billiard rooms, in accordance with the laws of the province.  The chief says he has received numerous complaints along this line.  The first month of 1905, in point of  tonnage shipped from the mines of the  Boundary, makes 'a creditable showing  when the fact of a serious shortage of  power, due to cold weather, is taken  into consideration. The seveie  weather froze up the streams, and permitted the Cascade power works to  operate but two generators most of the  time, thus affecting to no'sraall extent  the mines and smelters dependent upon those workt for electrical energy.  Notwithstanding this, the total runs  over 68,000 tons for January, and now  that the Montreal & Boston smelter  nas two furnaces blown in, February  should make aa even better showing.  As illustrating the difference made, the  Granby mines alone shipped nearly  9,000 more tons of ore in December  last than in January. The following  are the. shipments from each of the  .mines, as reported to the Pioneer, for  January:  Mine " Tonnage  Granby mines 40,450  Mother Lode 13.696  Brooklyn-Stemwmder 6,849 '  Rawhide    .J. 2,251  Sunset S.     726  Mountain Rose :...'  682  Emma '. r...  1,849  Oro Denoro      .     .

Montreal & Boston Consolidated, was  much pleased with what he saw of the  mines of the Boundary. It is his  opinion that the Granby mines constitute the largest ore body he has seen  anywhere in his wide experience. He  will probably return here in the spring.  It is believed at the coast that the  highest price ever paid for a prospect  in this province was a few days ago  when the Erl Syndicate, Ltd., through  its local representative, Barclay Bon-  throne, received $130,000 for the Monarch group of three claims in this  camp from the Granby Co. It appears  to have been overlooked, however,  that this group is one of the very best  in the Boundary that has not been  worked in the past, and has a most  remarkable showing.

STRICTLY BUSINESS  Some of the Russians are still threat-  1 ening the life of Czar Nicholas.    If he  would make an effort to treat his down-  ' trodden subjects a little more'humarie-  ly he" might riot be in such constant  ' fear of assassination.  Last year was a good one among the  high grade mines of the Boundary, but  from the interest taken so far this year  m this class of properties, it bids fair  to exceed 1904. There is many another Elkhorn, Providence or Skylark  in these hills, and they will make their  mark in due time.  Fred Simpson, of the Cranbrook  Herald, has" been elected vice-president of the Alberta Press Association,  s at a.meeting recently held, at Calgary.  There is no reason in the world ..why  the editors of British Columbia could  not have a similar organization, and it  is to be hoped that they will soon see  it to their Interest to make another  effort to that end, the benefits from  which cannot fail to be mutual.  The statement that is father to the  purchase is daddy 10 the dollar.  Never 'forget that the average person requires a whole lot of telling.  The simplest and plainest way is  the best way to tell your advertising  story.  No business can succeed without  customers, and the way to secure customers is to advertise for them.  No advertisement should be so  worded r.s to leave any possible doubt  as to its meaning, if it is meant to sell  goods.  Do not scatter your energy. A  sprinkling wagon is all right to "lay  ihe dust," but ii's the straight and  solid stream that puts out the fire.  During the month' of January the  St. Eugene mine, at Moyie, milled  12,918 tons of' crude ore and made  2,520 tons of concentrates. ' During  the latter part of the month the mill  broke all records and the daily run was  120 tons of concentrates, or about 20  tons more per day than was ever made  before.  The Pioneer does not think that the  Mineral Act of this province is all that  it should be���far from it.    But we are  of the ��� opinion that it  vas generally  speaking, a good thing that the act has  - been left severely alone for the  last  , few years.   The two per cent  tax  oh  gross output of mines is  not fair nor  equitable, as it taxes indirectly the entire cost of mining supplies, wages, etc.  An agitation is now afoot again to have  it changed, and it should be changed,  but mining men generally should agree,  -to some extent, at least as to the nature of the changes, and how the gov.  ernniejnt will not lose the much needep  revenue thereby.    If the high grade  mine owners of the Slocan insist, when  they know it bears heavily on the low  .grade mine owners, that the Act is all  right and satisfactory, the government  will have good reason to decline to  Jdferit, *  lo Ike.Villain's Power.  Bound and gagged the maiden was  thrust into a gunny sack, and nnable  to move or scream, she feltherself carried rapidly up a flight of stairs from  the dungeon, and then was put into a  buggy and driven down the street at a  rapid rate. ' Ineffectually srie struggled  to release herself from the gag. sAlas!  She was bound too securely: Finally j  the conveyance stopped. She. was  again carried into a building and fajnt-  ing, gasping for breath, the sack was  taken from her head. The villain took  the gag from her mouth, bis-;eyes  gleamed like coals of fire through his  mask, released her hands and hissed  ihrough his teeth: "There my pretty  bird, scream and yell as long and loud  as you like, no human ears will ever  hear you. You are in 'my. power, do.  you hear? Totally within my power."-j  "Where am I?" she gasped. "You  are in a store that never advertises,"  was the cold and cruel response,  "Alas! Alas!" she moaned. "No pow-fj  er on earth can save; no one will look  for me here; no,one comes this way,"  and the poor girl fainted.-���Ex.  Chamberlain's Stomach and  liver  Tablets.  Unequalled for Consumption.      '.'  Mr. A. R. Kane, a prominent druggist of Baxter Springs, Kansas; says:  "Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver  Tablets are, in my judgment,; the  most superior preparation of anything  in use today for constipation. They  are sure in action and with no tendency to nauseate or gripe." For  sale by all druggists,"  .When.You Have a Cold.  The first action when you have a  cold should be to relieve the lungs.  This is best accomplished by the free  use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.  This Remedy liquefies the. tough  mucus and causes its expulsion from  the air cells of the lungs, produces a  free expectoration, and opens the secretions. A complete cure soon follows. This remedy will cure a severe  cold in less time than any other treatment and it leaves, the system in a  natural and healthy condition. It  counteracts any tendency toward pneumonia.

Practical, experience, good sound  judgment and common sense frequently win over "book learning."- It is  safe to say that Tames Cronin never  attended a mining school a day in his  life, and yet he stands head and shouk  ders above: most ofthe; "schooled"  mining men in the province. Like Jim  Hill in railroading; Mr.- Cronin has  gained his knowtedge of mining step,  by step, and he is therefore familiar  with the details of every branch of the  business^ He can .neither put the  letters "M:E.!' or "B. A." after his name  but his opinion on a mining proposition will carry more weight than that  of any. dozeii college bred experts in  the country.���Moyie Leader.   .     '  Latest Mining  Stock Quotations,   '  London, Feb. 1.���At a large meet  ingot the shareholders of the -LeRoi  Mining Company, the chairman reported another disappointing year, but  owing to the discovery of more high-  grade ore, it promised better in the  future. The meeting approved the  proposal that the LeRoi Co. amalgamate with other Rossland mining companies with a capilalof^1,500,000  and a working .capital of ,��300,000 or  ^400,000.  This is the outcome of the negotiations that have been in progress for  some months now for the consolidation of the biggest mines in the Rossland camp and one in the Boundary  country in which some of the largest  shareholders of LeRoi are interested.  The amalgamation, if consummated,  will include the LeRoi, LeRoi No. 2,  the War Eagle and Center Star, and  the Waterloo.  Under one management and with  the large reductions which could'be  made in the management of the consolidated properties, it is believed a  new period of prosperity would begin  for mining development in the Rossland camp.  The allusion to the discovery of high  grade ore in LeRoi is a reference to  the result of recent development inithe  lower levels. On the 1450-1 oot level,  where development is being. energetically carried on, the ore- shoot has  widened out to nine feet, and a recent  cable to London stated that the ore in  this shoot assayed $30 to the ton. - '  A good ore shoot has, also been  found in the raise from the 1350-fool  level, the extent of which is'not;yet  known. ��� In the 900-foot level ithe  south vein ore-shoot-is 140 feet long  and has*a: width of 25 feet. Every j  promise is given that with greater depth  the value of the mine will improve, and  that its old reputation willbe- restored.  LIABIMTIES.  CrtjUiiI paid up  Reserve.

The matron having fully understood  our embarrassed financial condition,  has overcome seemingly insurmount  able difficulties. Too much praise  can not be given the matron and her  staff for their loyalty to the hospital  and their zeal in performing their arduous duties.  The board received and accepted  the resignation of the matron, Miss  Johnson,, on June 1st, and elected  Miss Sarah Howe to succeed her.  The past five months have been the  heaviest in the history of the institution. In order to relieve to some extent the heavy burdens devolving upon  the staff, I heartily recommend that  the incoming board allow the matron  to secure a woman to scrub the halls  and wards as often as necessary.  The friends of the hospital are becoming so numerous as to make it  necessary to regulate the hours for receiving callers by having certain fixed  days and hours for that purpose.  Our equipment has been increased  during the past year at a cost of $128.  The Ladies' Aid has sustained its  reputation by raising for the benefit of  the hospital $359.05. In this connection the hospital staff is deserving  of special mention lor having given a  social at the hospital, the returns from  which netted the hospital $80. The  Phoenix Bachelors gave a midsummer  dance and presented the receipts, $61,  to the hospital. I have the pleasure  to report that the city donated $50 per  month  for the last five months of the  We believe that municipal ownership of waterworks, electric Hunts, etc.,  is a good thing and wherever possible  should be the rule. Telephones, also,  should come under this head, if outside connections���the great thing in  telephony, after all���can be had. But  for a city to run its own little telephone  system isolated from the rest of the  world, as it were; is another question.  In a thickly settled district, with other  cities in the same boat, it certainly  should be done, but as it is in Kootenay, it will he fortunate if it can be  made to make' both ends meet, with  another system in the field.  Mf  Speaking of the coal.city, where certainly one  is supposed  to get a Tail  deal  in coal,   brings  to  mind th.it;,  subscriber to  the Fernie  Ledjje a.ik  Col.

Nearly-all the cities and towns in  British Columbia have been having a  celebration of the Chinese, New Year  by the yellow colored inhabitants.  Phoenix is never troubled that way.  m,  Patrick O'Farrell, the confidential  scribe of F. Augustus Heinze, of Butte,  and lormerly of British Columbia, was  a visitor in the Boundary a few1 days  ago, taking a \view of the prevailing  conditions ; here.; Mr. O'Farrell has  the reputation of being one of the best  writers that ever came into these parts  and shortly the. good-���or bad���residents of Butte will ��� be regaled with  some stories of. mining and smelting  in the Boundary���and that may  help  some.  .'.'��������  The Western Clarion, of Vancouver,  has again been resurrected; we cannot  recollect whether this is the third or  fourth coming to life of this publication,  but, seemingly, it is harder to kill than  the proverbial cat. As heretofore, it  staunchly supports the doctrines of the  Socialists, of British Columbia, but  whether those of that political faith  will ste-p in and support it in any better fashion than in the past remains to  be seen. Strange as it may seem,  even Socialist printers have a desire to  see the ghost walk once in a while, at  least. -.'������'���'''���  A Beautiful Canadian Girl Saved From  Catarrh of the Lungs by Pe-rn-na.  winter  Carnival  Rossland  Feb.

The average  number of days per patient being a  little less than 17; the maximum number of days per month being 12 and  the minimum number of days per  month 4; the average number of  patients per month being 9^; There  were 39 private patients during the  year.

On behalf of the board I extend  hearty thanks to all the friends of our  one public institution for their cordial  support, and earnestly solicit your continued generous corperation, to the end  that we may be thoroughly prepared to  care for our sick and maimed brothers  and sisters, and make easier, if possible,  the last moments of those who must  needs launch their frail barks upon  Eternity's waves. Who knows but  that you may be one of them.;  Respectfully,  J. L. Martin, Sec.  That bright little weekly at Victoria,  called the Week, runs what it styles a  Wild Cat column, consisting of bits of  mining news of the province. The  editor of the Week must have "been  there," and - yet he gets in news about  the,Granby, Crow's Nest Coal, the St.  Eugene and other mines that might  have been "wild cats" once, but certainly are not in that class today.  &"  uneasiness and worry in the household  when a child showed symptoms of  croup, there is now perfect confidence.  There is owing to the uniforn success  of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in  the treatment of that disease. Mrs. M.  I. Basford, of Poolesville, Md., in  speaking of her experiences in the use  of that remedy says: "1 have a world  of confidence in Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy for I have used it with perfect  Success. My child Garland is subject  to severe attacks of croup and it always  gives him perfect relief."

The B. C. Telephone  Co. is proceeding as fast as possible  with the installation of its system there,  and at the solicitation of the city council of the coal town, the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co. is also putting in a system as fast as men and money can do  il. Thus it would seem tq be a battle  of the giants���ijntil que s,ells qiit to  tbe other, after which there is littie  danger of the rates being lowered.  .There is a gentleman living at  Houghton,.Michigan, by the name of  Horace J. Stevens, who is acknowl-  deged to be an authority on the copper industry. ..His home is in the  heart of the famous lake branch of  that industry. He is the author 01  the well known Copper Handbook, an  annual publication, and recently wrote  a review of the copper trade of the  world for 1904, which was published  in the Mining Reporter, of Denver,  and other standard mining publications. Mr. Stephens places the Granby mine as sixteenth in the list of the  world's large copper producers, and  says of it:  ���'TheGranby,Canada's leadingmine,  has increased its output and will show-  steady gains for several years to come,  owing to the possession of one of the  largest bodies of copper ever opened,  though it is decidedly low in grade.  With the Granby the question is  merely one of increasing smelting facilities, as the ore can be supplied  with ease for a reduction plant of any  desired size. The Granby will become  one of the world's largest producers  within ten years, but time will be re  quired to furnish the monstrously  large reduction plant that will be needed to treat the output of 8,000 to  10,000 tons of ore daily that the mine  can furnish."  wt  Coming from such an admittedly  independent and unbiassed source,  these remarks about the leading copper producer of Canada, arc not a little significant. Of coures, we who  have lived here for yeais, have been  aware of the facts all along, but It has  taken time to pound it into the heads  of outsiders. However, they are coming to understand the situation in its  full importance, and such an understanding can do no harm to the Boun-  ary It has everything to gain and  nothing to lose by it. And gain it  will.  ��M  A veracious correspondent tells of a  printing office that was always opened  and closed with prayer.

You are up against a whole lot of  trouble unless you have.a strong remedy Hke Nerviline to settle pain and  dislodge stiffness from the muscles and  joints. Just rub Nerviline on the pain  ful spot-���not much rubbing because  Nerviline has more power than ordinary remedies. You won't suffer long  after Nerviline is applied for it relieves  almost instantly. Mr. Phillip Adams,  of Oakland, says: '"If'I hadn't used  Nerviline I guess my back would be  stiff yet. A (ew applications of Nervi  line took out all the soreness and  stiffness. I can recommend Nerviline  for any kind of muscular pain, also for  rheumatism."    Price 25c.  E.
