JlWriti ^Wmgswi^m  In most mining districts of some  age, there has come the tim'u when a  long tunnel project has been brought  up, its feasibility considered, and in  many cases the enterprise, often involving an outlay of millions of capital  before any return could' be received,  has been carried through to a successful issue.  Here in the Boundary, in the past  there have been various projects' for a  long tunnel, and in every case the objective point to be reached was Phoenix���-and their projectors would have'  them driven from low levels at almost  every point of the compass; But  Phoenix was tlie goal of their efforts,  for it was here they expected to receive  their tonnage when the project might  be completed/  The advantages of a long and deep  tunnel, if. the ore  is  there, are   many,  such as doing away with hoisting and  pumping,  ready drainage, nearness to  smelting facilities,   saving  on   freight,  and the proving  that  ore  bodies are  found   much   lower than the average  company   or   individual  is  ready  to  prove by means of shafts or even diamond   drilling.-   Therefora,   with   the  proper mixture  of   metallurgical skill  and capital   in   the   right   place, such  enterprises have often been; successful.  Eight or   ten  years ago   Volcanic  Brown had a plan ��� for driving   a long  tuiinel   from   near   Grand   Forks    to  Phoenix, thus tapping the ore' bodies  of Wellington and other camps on the  way.    Later   it   was   extensively   published, but never with official sanction,  that the  Granby   Co. was   planning a  deep tunnelthat would have its outlet  in what is known as Deadman's gulch,  almost due north   of  Phoenix.    This  tunnel   was   expected   to  strike   the  Phoenix ore bodies at a  depth of perhaps 1,500 feet and to be about a mile  in length.    Then, again,  the  Granby  was   credited   with   the   intention  of  driving a deep tunnel from  Fourth of  July   creek, . However,   later   events  have shown   that, if...the, Granby_. Co.  had this in; rnitfd," 11 "was' dropped, as  extensive equipment has   been   added  to the machinery plant  to handle the  ore tonnage of the company right here  in Phoenix���which is likely  to be the  programme for many-years to come, at  least. .  .Another   project    that    has    been  mooted occasionally in the last eight'mile, or over one-third of the distance  or ten years, has been a tunnel from j to Phoenix.  Greenwood   to .Phoenix.     Until-v re-      Extensive dumping grounds must be  cently, however, it Iks never been put  in tangible"form; but it is now being  gotten in shape so that it is likely to  be undertaken and successfully driven  a mile or two, even though it never  reaches the chief mining camp of the  Boundary. But such a tunnel driven  half a mile or a mile, has many elements; .to/com menir it, and should  prove'; a^succe8sfiil;'andertaking, even  though'it did not reach Phoenix.  Plans of Ihe Cti\ctgo Men.  A number of Chicago men who are  already interested lo 110 small extent  in many of the high grade mines of  the Boundary, have been looking into  the matter for some time, Richard  Armstrong^ formerly a resident of  Grand Forks but latterly making his  home in Chicago, being one of them,  Last week and this Mr. Armstrong has  been in Greenwood and Grand Forks  on this mission, representing his associates in Chicago,.'and being accompanied by_ Edward' F. Johnson, sec:  retary of the Crescent Mines, Ltd., and  by Dr. S. Peacock, also of Chicago,  who is said to be <an; eminent mining  engineer, and-who himself represents  Col.T. L. Dickason, president and chief  shareholder of the Crescent mine.  These gentlemen came to look over  the ground and also to see .if any en  couragement to the-important project  would be offered locally. The project  meant the expenditure of perhaps $3,-  000,000.in money in its entirety, reaching the Phoenix mines at a depth of  about 2,000 feet in a.tunnel three and  a half miles in-Iength.  They were well received in Greenwood, and appeared before the board  of trade of that city last week, the  plans explained as far..as laid-out, and  the hearty endorsement of that body  was unanimously secured.  The members of the city council of  Greenwood also took up the   matter,  and aie understood to have expressed  themselves favorably towards bonusing  the tunnel company to the extent of  $50,000 in debentures, payable as  follows: $5,000 to be paid on the completion of the first 2,000 feet of tunnel;  $10,000 at the end of 4,000 feet, and  $15,000 when   6,000  feet, or   over a  available at the mouth of the tunnel,  and it is likely that this will be somewhere near the present Strathmore  mine, north of the town of Greenwood.  Numerous high grade properties would  he tapped in the course of the first  6,000 feet, such mines thus having  splendid and economical facilities for  getting out ore���which they have one  and all lacked in the past.  Good Thlnj for Greenwood.  There, can be no question but that  such a tunnel would be a splendid  thing for Greenwood, which was shown  by the warm sympathy for the plan  when laid before the city council and  board of trade by Messrs. Armstrong,  Peacock and Johnson.  As yet the board of trade or city  council of Phoenix have not yet. been  approached on the subject, but that  will keep for a time yet, at least.  Whether the heavy copper shippers of  the Boundary are lending a favorable  ear lo the. project is not yet slated,  either. Without their co-operation in  a practical way, the tunnel would  hardly reach Phoenix, but it could be  made to be a successful enterprise,  nevertheless, with the many rich high-  grade leads in various camps to be  tapped���mines that have in the past  under anything but favorable conditions, shipped ore worth at least a  million dollars, according to the best  estimates.  When Dr. Peacock's report is received in Chicago by the capitalists  who will provide most of the money  for driving the tunnel, it is likely that  favorable action will be taken, probably subject to another visit by the  doctor to look over the ground when  the snow is partially off, at least. It  will be necessary to form a tunnel company, and if all goes well a couple of  months may see the initial work of the  undertaking actually underway.  Mr.   Armstrong . is   known    as   a  hustler, and has been successful in the  past in interesting many Chicago men  in mining in the Boundary. It is to  be hoped that his newest plan will be  put through to a successful finish in  every way. It will be good for Greenwood and the Boundary generally, if  properly carried out.  MASQUERADE AT THE  SKATING RINK.  List   of   Prizes   That   Were  Awarded  Tuesday  Eve.

About Same as 1906,Despite  Various Shut-Downs,  Think Highly of Crescent.  Edward F. Johnson, of Chicago;  secretary of the Crescent Mines, Ltd.,  accompanied by Dr. S. Peacock, a  mining engineer, were in the Boundary  last week, on a visit of inspection to  the property.'* Before he left last  Saturday on his return trip to Chicago,  Mr. Johnson is quoted as follows:  "We have," said Mr. Johnson,- "one  of the best equipped mines I have  seen.. The new compressor installed  by the Allis-Chalmers Bullock, Ltd., is  working spendidly and stopihg is being started on the 225-foot level. The  drifts have been run about 100 feet,  both north and south, from the shaft  and the ore looks good all the way.  All the men work this morning at  the end of the south drift where tne  ore looks better than anywhere else."  Mr. Johnson expresses every confidence that the Crescent mine will fulfill .all .expectations.,        ��� ,:���,...  IBmmfv^w^  PHOENIX HOCKEY  BOYS WINNERS  Took Intermediate Championship At Rossland.  Sunday and Monday the members  of the Phoenix Intermediate hockeyists  returned from Rossland, not a little  pleased that they had been successful at the winter carnival in carrying off  the intermediate hockey championship  for British Columbia, Some of those  who played against them in the Ross  land senior team and the ]T-rail players  were nearly all heavier men.  Their first game was with Tran  which they won out by a score of 10  to 8 goals. The second'game was  with Rossland, and had an audience  of some 1,500 witnessed the contest.  This was won by the Phoenicians by  the even closer score of 6 to 5. The  boys were offered $7 5 towards expenses  of the trip from the carnival committee,  which, of .course, did not pay actual  outlay, but they went for the real sport  of the contest. Those who went with  the team were as follows, with their  positions: Goal, Biner; point, A. li.  H. Clark; cover, Jost; center, McKelvey; rover, McDonald; right wing, Roy  Clark; left wing, Longhurst; spare,  Pierce.  Thea saw the mix-up of the Nelson  and Rossland hockey teams, which  seems to occur each winter regularly,  this time the Nelsun team declining to  play under the Rossland rules, alleging  that the Rossland people had agreed  specifically to certain rules, especially  a judge of play. Rossland was awarded  the championship of B. C. because  the Nelson men would not appear under rules they had not agreed to.  Some 500 went to Rossland from Nelson to witness this game and were  disappointed, and peopie of the two  places, as well as the papers are now  threshing the matter out with much  feeling.  Members of the Phoenix team state  that they were well treated in Rossland  and had a good time generally.  Mr. Coleman Will Remain.  A week or two agoadespatch from tne  coast was published   to the  effect that  D. C. Coleman, superintendent of the  C. P, R.'s   Kootenay-Boundary   lines,  would be transfered to  the Cranbrook  division.    Mr. Coleman   had   been in  this   section   but   a   few months  and  many regrets were expressed by heavy  shippers and those   who. came   in contact   with   him,   that   he  should   be  moved.    In  fact,   the matter   took so  important  a   turn   that  the  C. P. R.  officials decided tq keep Mr. Coleman  right where he is, and do the shuffling t  of the superintendents- without moving  him.  This is as it should be, for it is the  general opinion that not in years has  the C. P. R. had an official who was  persona grata to a larger number of  patrons of the company in this district  than has been Mr. Coleman. He looks  after his district carefully, listens to  and adjusts "kicks" of patrons or  others if any be registered, he has the  confidence of the employees of the  company, and is seemingly the right  man in the right place. The upper  officials of the C. P. R. are to be congratulated on their good sense in keeping Mr. Coleman where he is. The  company will be the gainer and so will  the Kootenay-Boundary���and what  more could be asked?  Boundary Mining Notes  At the Granby smelter the entire  eight furnaces are once again in blast.  Two of them were out for several days  last week, while some minor repairs  were going on both in Phoenix and  Grand Forks. For the tirvie being it  cut the tonnage down somewhat, bul  thus far this year Granby has shipped  over 100,000 tons of ore.  Order ol Owls.  A. C. McKeen, Supreme Organizer  of the Order of Owls, is in the city organizing a nest of that order, and is  meeting with success, having already  secured a number of signers to a charter  list. The first meeting of the Owls  will be held in Miners' Union hall,  Sunday afternoon, at three o'clock; also  at 7.30 p.m. next Wednesday. An initiation of candidates will take place in  the same hall at 7.45 p.m.  The Order of Owls is a secret society  of good fellows who believe in love and  laughter and the kingdom of Heaven  on earth. They pay sick and accident  benefits, bury the dead and furnish  doctors for their sick brothers.  Manager Roberts, of the Jewel  mine, is still away in Colorado, where  he went with a ca.r of Jewel ore, lo  learn, if possible, the best process to  install for treatment of the same.  When this is determined, it is understood that the Scotch owners of the  property will inst.ill - the  equipment for treatment.  necessary  Stoping is now going on at the 225-  foot level of the Crescent mine, in Skylark camp, preparatory to the beginning  of ore shipments to the Trail   smelter.  Manager Thomas, of the Dominion.  Copper Co. stated to the Pioneer  yesterday that he had heard nothing  yet regarding the resumption of mining and smelting by his company.  At the Granby's Curlew opening,  work is progressing steadily on the  electrical installation, but it will probably be a few weeks yet before it is  ready for constant use and the electric  trolley is completely installed  B. C. Copper Co.'s annual meeting  was scheduled to be held last Tuesday  at Charlestown, West Virginia, when a  new board of directors was to be  chosen. The meeting was understood  to be a formal one, to comply with the  laws.  I>ast week the new 500 h.p. motor  for the B. C. Copper Co.'s Mother  Lode mine, arrived in Greenwood from  the Canadian General Electric Co.,  of Hamilton, Ont. It will be used,  when installed, for driving the new air  compressor at the mine.  Announcement is made in eastern  papers that the recent assignment of  Warner Miller, president of the Dominion Copper Co., will have no effect  whatever on the company itself, for the  reason that Mr. Miller's holdings in  the company were now very small.  Last Monday was the monthly payday at the Granby mines for January,  when approximately $50,000 was distributed in wages here. Probably  $30,000 more was paid out in Grand  Forks on the same day. January was  a 3 i-day month, and a large number of  men were employed for the entire  month.  Frederick Keffer, engineer for the  B. C. Copper Co., was at the company's Lone Star and Washington  mine, across the line in Washington, a  few days ago, for the purpose ol put-  ing a few men at work on development. A diamond drill has also been  sent to this property and some bore  holes will be put in. Il is understood  the Lone Star is standing up well under development by Mr. Keffer, the  results being very satisfactory thus far.  Killed by Eating Lye.  Last Sunday the four year old son of  James Fisher found some lye at home  and ate ft 'when' Wis' father- was not  looking, his mother being absent at a  neighbor's. Dr. Dickson was quickly  called, and everything was done for the  little sufferer. He was removed to the  hospital, but death relieved his sufferings Monday night. The funeral was  held Thursday afternoon.  The Fisher family, who now live on  Granby place, have been exceedingly  unfortunate. A few weeks ago they  were burned out in the Gus. B. Larson  cottage, where they lived then, not  being able to save even their personal  effects before the fire made such headway as to destroy nearly everything.  Notwithstanding the various shutdowns'which the plants of the Granby  Consolidated, British .Columbia and  Dominion Copper companies were  forced to undergo last year by reason  of coke shortage and inability to secure  adequate transportation facilities between mines and smelters, the shipments of copper from the District of  panada were but little under receipts  of copper in United States from that  section during the preceeding year, the  1907 shipments to American refineries  being 29,423,857 pounds, against 30,-  375.924; pounds in the previous 12  months. * 'p-x/./.p  The amount of ores, however, sent  to the United States from British Columbia was 100% greater than in 1906,  totaling 127,340 tons, against 56,185  tons in the year before.

If this fails with respect to all  parties, then the statute itself becomes  a dead letter; but if a penal clause is  enforcible as to one party and not as  to the other, then the statute instantly  menaces the first party at the hands''cf  the second, and this is precisely what  happens in the case of the Lemieux  /'ct. It is operative as to responsible  employers but is practically inoperative  to employees. President Eliot, himself,  evidently saw this feature of the act  since, in his conclusions, he says that it  is an interesting question how the penal  clauses of the act are to be enforced,  although it would appear from the remarks following that he had reference  more to legal procedure than punishment.  The Lemieux Act is premature.  Admirably conceived, formulated with  cold impartiality, its influence over the  industrial world will be inversely' proportional to the degree of immunity  from prosecution which, in practice,  the irresponsible employee will be  found to enjoy. Stated another way,  there is nothing in this act that makes  it practically possible to penalize men  that own nothing and   that  are  con-  for you are to ba found in a bottle  of Bovril,  "Boyril" contains all that is  good in beef.

He  has no need to 'strike' for. he is full of  plausible excuses, born' of a cosmopolitan experience, and his ^inalienable  rights' are strongly safeguarded.  All this was clearly illustrated during the late unpleasantness at Crow's  Nest Pass and, only a fe\y days ago, iti  the Boundary country of British Columbia. In the lattei; district, the  practical effect of the Lemieux Act was  to prevent all reference to wages by the  managers, before shutting down , the  numerous copper mines and smelting  plants in their charge. It had been  rumored that the men .would reject any  proposal involving a return to the old  scale notwithstanding that the miners  of Butte, Montana, had; already done  so on' November 1, in strict accordance  with their agreements which were based  upon eighteen-cent copper. The men  of the Boundary claimed , that they,  themselves, had signed no such agreement, although it was well known that  the Boundary scale depended entirely  upon that of Butte, and it was a matter  of common belief that both, hinged  upon the price of copper..  By the terms of the Lemieux Act,  therefore, had any attempt been,.made  by the managers to  close down, their  been rejected and before a commision  under the act  had   heard  all   the evidence in the case, it   would   have l,ii<*  each   of   the   companies,   liable   ti  niaximun fine of a $1,000 per day, aivl  they were  all   thoroughly responsible  There was nothing  to be done,   therefore except  carefully   to  avoid  all re  ference  to  wages and   the   compan.i.'  confronted   by   the   alternative of  in  definite delay incident to official invesii  gation  or  of a  complete   shut-down  pending efforts for better terms, chose  the latter.    Within a few hours, every  wheel in the district had   stopped, immense   plants   were   boarded, up and  thousands  of men,   over confident. of  their power, suddenly found themselves  without employment.  The   fate of the  Boundary  count'  m ide a deep impression upon the iii  of Rossland, for  on November 26,'  a  referendum   vote,   they   decided. 1  accept the old scale and so .announce  their decision to the managers, althou.-1  'the latter had made   no move 'bcyo'v  intimating urn fficially that   under   ti. ���  scale then existing all work would &<���'/.  on December r.

These examples, in contradistinction  to those cited by'. President Eliot, will  serve to show the other side of the  Lemieux Act; and while they certainly  indicate a weakness somewhat, it may  be doubted whether the weakness lies  in the act itself rather than in the absence of complementary, or preparatory,  legislation necessary to give the act  full force and effect.  With this possibility in mind, the  Industrial Disputes Investigation Act  of 1907 was, in the beginning of this  article, characterized as premature. No  one who has ever been party to a  serious industrial dispute will hesitate  to advocate legislation that will render  organized , labor equally, responsible  with its' employers, legally and financially; nor will he for a moment doubt  that what is most needed to complete  the usefulness of the act in question is  another act. or series of acts, compelling organized labor to incorporate, to  own property, to maintain a guarantee  fund as indemnity against loss to   the  member thereof may go into court wilh  clean hands, equally responsible with  his employer, in every way.  Nor is this at all impracticable or  difficult. Combinations^ pf labor are  henceforth as inevitable as combinations of capital; but it must never be  forgotten that, as the late John Marshall said, "It is not sale to trust to  human cupidity when it has the opportunity to aggrandize itself at! the  expense of others."  To require labor organizations to incorporate, therefore, would result hi  immediate improvement in their internal discipline; and each member,  being made to feel his personal responsibility in the acts of his representatives,  would soon learn to choose his leaders  for their business ability and integrity  alone and not for oratorical powers;or  physical prowess. When this happens,  as it must, and when labor leader meets  business manager on an equal footing,  each representing responsible interests  and each capable of understanding the  other, then will all industrial disputes  begin to solve themselves almost automatically, if held in check by laws as  prudent and comprehensive as the  Lemieux Act. But without this equality  of legal and financial responsibly it is  useless to pile statute on statute for, as  Kipling says, it is only when the'pocket-1  book is touched that ','things happen." .

J. B. Alexander, Publisher of tbe  "Trait and Floral, Guide, A Magazine  of Horticulture," published In Hartford  City, Ind., aava of Peruna:  "I waa afflicted with catarrh of tbe  throat and head for oyer ten years. 1  waa treated bjr many physicians, but  grew worse until I was seldom able to  go out In cold weather.  "About one year ago I was advised to  try Perana, which I did, and I am now  entirely well of the catarrh.  "Peruna la m nacmsslty In our home.  With the tint symptoms ot a cold we  uae It, mod mre nhver afflicted with cm*  tarrb.  "I advise all who are afflicted with  catarrh to try Peruna.

Y., writes:  " I had been a sufferer for more than  thirty years with catarrh of the Intestines.   I had used a great deal of mecll  cine   to  no  avail, so I decided to try  Perana.  "/ timve now used thirteen bottles  and can give you the Joy fui tidings that  I have no more trouble. I always 'keep  Peruna on hand.' '���Fred. Schnell.  The people generally are very mnch  misinformed as to the nature of catarrh.  Catarrh is usually believed to be confined to the head, nose and throat. Latterly we sometimes hear of catarrh of  tho stomach and catarrh of the bladder.  Seldom, if ever, do we hear of catarrh of  any other organs.  It is not because these organs are not  subject to catarrh, nor that catarrh of  these organs is not a very common disease, but simply because it is not generally known that affections of these  organs may be due to catarrh.  Had Catarrh Thirty Years,���Pe-ru-na  Cured Him.  Mr. Gustav M. Schmidt, Spring Valley,  111., writes:  " I nod catarrh of tho head and throat  for over thirty years. It became worse  every yoar.  "About three months ago I commenced  to tako Peruna and Manalin, and now I  am entirely.cured of that troublesome  sicKness. Your medicine 1? suroly a  blessing to mankind. ���  " You can truly say that you have not  lived In vain, Doctor, and J thank you  for tho good you have done me. May  you enjoy a long life to help suffering  humanity."--Gnstav M. Schmidt.  Dr. Hartman Makes Personal Use of  Pe-ru-na.  In speaking of his own personal use  of Peruna, Dr. Hartman says:  "For a number of years my professional duties have compelled me to be  much on the road, traveling long distances by rail, night and day, exposed  to all kinds of vicissitudes, sleeping and  eating in different hotels continually,  and through It all I have preserved myself from any, derangement of the body  resulting from catching cold.  "At the slightest evidence of a cold, a  few doses of Peruna invariably checked  it."  A Farmer's Talk to Farmers.  Before Br. Hartman began the study  of medicine he was a farmer boy: He  was brought up on a farm in Southern  Pennsylvania.  He belonged to that industrial, successful class of farmers known as the  Pennsylvania Hutch, the best farmers  in the world.  It was here that ne early learned the  lesson of pulling obnoxious things ont  by the roots.  Dr.  Hartman'i Method of Treating  Catarrh.  Naturally, when he began the study  of medicine his mind turned instinctive  ly toward the removing of causes. He  could not content himself with doctoring symptoms any more than his enterprising father could have contented  himself by pulling off the tops of weeds  to eradicate them from the soil.  The Doctor turned his attention early  to the science of removing the cause of  diseases, believing thatobnoxious symptoms would disappear if the cause of the  disease was removed.  In other words, Dr. Hartman applied tbe common sense of the practical  farmer to medicine, and after much  experimentation Peruna waa compounded.  The sensible farmer does not think o'  cutting off the tops of weeds to kill  them.   He pulls them up by the roots.  Dr. Hartman Interested in Farming  Notwithstanding Dr. Hartman's busy  professional career, he still continues to  be interested In farming. He la the  owner and manager of one of the largest  farms in the State of Ohio, with several  thousand acres of the best tilled land in  the Middle West, and with hundreds of  the best blooded percheron horses ever  Imported or raised in this conn try.

The following story of a�� proposed  merger of Franklin camp mines, from  Grand Forks., was printod recently in a  Vancouver paper, and is given for what  it is worth:  "A mammoth mining merger affecting nearly all the principal properties  in Franklin camp and entailing an expenditure of nearly a quarter of a  million dollars is at present under contemplation and may materialize if the  New York company which is at present  working the Maple Leaf property  finally takes up the present bond. It'  is stated from inside sources that as  soon as the present bond of $125,000  is lifted on the Maple Leaf, the same  company will endeavor to secure the  Gloucester group, the White Bear  group, as well as the M. S. and several  other well known properties in the immediate vicinity. These properties  would all be worked by the same company. At the present time a small  force of miners is at work on the  Maple Leaf, and it is stated that it has  been decided to run a long tunnel on  the property.  "In the event of the mining merger  being completed the Maple Leaf Mines,  Ltd., would also undertake the erection  of a smelting plant in Franklin camp  and thus do away with the necessity of  shipping, the ore some fifty miles to  the Granby smelter. The ores of  Franklin camp are as a general rule  low grade, but could be treated at a  good profit by the Franklin camp  smeller."  MINERAL ACT.  AVERAGE  Certificate of Improvements.  NOT I OB.

Mr. Day is the receiver. He  is awaiting further cable instructions  from London, and nothing definite can  be said yet as to the future of the  property, although it is understood  that the smelter will be remodelled  and operated, and that the Silver King  mine will be worked. The property is  too valuable to remain idle much  longer without entailing great loss.  The plant has been closed down  since August last, and the present step  was not an unexpected one.

The letter informed tlie professor that  his patronage was desired, and that as  a sample of the work he would find enclosed a clipping from a speech by  President Roosevelt, in which he had  quoted the professor's words. Professor Burke read the clipping nearly-  through before he realized that the  President was quoting from Edmund  Burke's speech on ("Conciliation With  It la Certainly So.
