The situation is that the property  is closed down and in its present  financial and physical condition  probably could not be sold for the  amount of its bonded debt, to say  nothing of its floating debt. Therefore  under such forclosure the stock would  be wiped out and would be worthless.  It was recognized, however, that  when the bondholders purchased the  property at foreclosure, they would  then own the whole of it in fee simple,  but in order to make it a success they  would have to raise money for working  capital. Many of the bondholders are  still in favor of pursuing that policy,  but it was the desire of the largest  bondholders that a plan be devised  which would save the bondholders and  yet preserve the equity for the shareholders. Naturally, the shareholders I  have got to do something to be entitled  to this equity. Under the present plan,  the shareholders lor supplying $500,-  000 working capital for the reorganized  company are to receive $500,000 in six  per cent, bonds, which come ahead of  every other security and ahead of what  the present bondholders will receive  and are given 20 per cent, of the prop  erty, or 50,000 shares out of a total  of 250,000 shares of new stock. Furthermore, the convertible clause in the  bonds which they obtain gives them a  share in the success and prosperity of  the mine in the event ofthe ne,> stock  selling above a premium of its par  value of $5.  MANAGER HODGES  AT THE COAST  Edmonton-Nelson   Hockey.  Nelson was the scene of two good  hockey matches this week, when the  team of that city and the Edmonton  team clashed for the championship of  western Canada. Edmonton won Monday's game by a score of 3-4 and Wednesday's game 7-3. In some fourteen  games played this st-ason the Edmonton seven have only lost one, being  defeated in Montreal in one of the two  games for the Stanley cup with the  Wanderers, who hold the trophy etn-  blamatic of the world's championship.  Interviewed re Granby Reduction Plant  "Early in July our smelting capacity  in the reduction works at Grand  Forks will be increased to 4500 tons  daily. It is now a thousand tons be  low this figure," said A. B W. Hodges,  general superintendent of the Granby  Consolidated Mining, Smelting &  Power company, who is at the Hotel  Vancouver on his way to Victoria, says  the Vancouver Province.  Mr. Hodges is one of the foremost  metallurgists on the continent. He  has been connected with the company  almost since its inception, and in recent years has taken over the direction  of the company's mines at Phoenix in  addition to supervising the smelting  oparalions at Grand Forks. He de  signed the smelting plant. The Granby  company has established a unique record as a moneymaker, its dividends  paid to date exceeding three and a half  million dollars, or over 20 per cent, of  the capital stock.  "The mining outlook in the Boundary looks bright, now that copper is  selling at a fairly good price. Our  values are in copper and gold, the  metals being separated by the electro  lytic process at a New York refinery.  Our payroll includes 550 men at the  Phoenix mines and 350 at the smelter."  Mr. Hodges has just resturned from  a visit of inspection to smelter plants  in Arizona and Mexico to see what his  rivals are doing. He was especially  interested in the plants of the Calumet  & Arizona, and the Copper Queen of  Bisbee, at Douglas, Arizona, and the  plant of the Greene-Cananea Copper  company at Cananea, Mexico. He  said he had seen some new and excellent mechanical contrivances in successful operation.  Harry Johns, manager of the B. C.  Copper company's Wellington camp  properties came in from the Napoleon  mine on Thursday. He was accompanied by A. Swan berg, who went to  Mother Lode mine yesterday, where he  will take a position as book-keeper for  the company.  The annual meeting of Greenwood  riding Conservative association was  held in Greenwood last Friday, some  40 delegates being present; The following officers were elected for 1909:  Honorary president, Hon. Richard  McBride; president, J. R.

Phoenix opera house has been  successful in securing an engagement  here of the celebrated lyric soprano,  Lena Duthie. It is certain this enterprise will receive the heartiest support  Irom lovers of the best in the enter  tainment line. Miss Duthie, with her  accompanist, Miss Daniel, presents a  unique and delightful program entitled  "An evening in Scotland and Ireland,"  and the most glowing terms of praise  from press and public everywhere in  the east, have been showered upon this  performance. Lena Duthie has won  the title of "Queen of Scottish Song"  throughout the civilized world, while  her character sketches of the national  life of Scotland and Ireland never fail  to convulse an audience. All Miss  Duthie's characters are presented in  costume. This celebrated artist will  appear here on Thursday evening,  February 25, apd. as the prices are  well within the reach of all a big house  should result.  PHOENIX CINCHES  BOUNDARY  Wins League Hockey  at Grand Forks.  After one of the fastest games of  hockey ever seen in the Boundary,  Phoenix defeated Grand Forks in the  latter city on Friday evening, Feb. 12,  by a score of 5 goals to 3.  This practically lands the Boundary  league hockey trophy for Phoenix,  having won five games out of six.  There are two more league games���  Phoenix goes to Greenwood some day  next week, and Grand Forks comes to  Phoenix on Feb. 26th���but there is  little chance of Phoenix losing out.  The local team went to Grand  Forks by special Great Northern train  last week and were accompanied by  about four scoie of their supporters.  After the h-ckey match they were  entertained at a dance and returned to  Phoenix at an early hour in the morning, having had a very enjoyable time.  It is expected Grand Forks will run  a special train to Phoenix next Friday,  the occasion of their next scheduled  game here  Qlve Brllllaat Al-Home lo Their  Thursday Evealog  Phoenix Hive Ladies of the Maccabees, which was recently organized,  entered the entertaining arena on a  most elaborate scale on Thursday evening, when they were at-home to about  160 invited guests in the lodgeroom of  Miners' Union hall. Never has the  lodge hall been the scene of a more  brilliant or larger assembly.  An excellent program of musical and  literary numbers was rendered  during  the earlier  part of the evening.    This  was followed by whist, in which  some  50 ladies and 50 gentlemen took part,  contesting   equally  diligently   toward  opposite poles of success.    There was  much rivalry for the ladies first prize,  Mrs. Hughes, Mrs. Stewart and   Mrs.  Dunlop each  winning nine out of a  possible twelve points, and haying  to  cut to decide ownership.   Mrs. Hughes  drew  the  high card  and received  a  pair of centre pieces,  while  a  handsome  gentle-  For   success  in   the  opposite direction, Miss Rabb and D.  Darraugh  also secured   momentos of  the occasion.    A dainty luncheon was  then served on  the  quartette   tables,  after which the floor was cleared  and  and dancing commenced,  continuing  into the wee hours of the morning.  The ladies of Phoenix Hive, No. 19,  are deserving of much credit for the  splendid evening's entertainment, and  those who shared in the pleasure of  the event are unanimous in congratulating the members of the hive on the  success of their first at-home.

The price paid for the retail stores was $��� 2,000. The purchase  is considered to be the first move in a  gigantic packers' war in which Burns  will buck Gallagher, the Hull Co., the  Gainor Co., the Vogel Meat Co.. and  Swift & Co., all of whom have large  interests he:e, for supremacy in the  west.         D. J. DARROUGH IS NEW CHIEF  Appointed by Police Commissioners at a Meeting on Monday.  At a meeting of Police and License  commissioners in the city hall on Monday, I). J. Darrough of Rock Creek  was appointed chief of Police for the  city of Phoenix. There were several  other applications for the position but  the appointment of Mr. Darrough was  unanimous.  . The appointment is a most popular  one among the people of the city  generally. Mr. Darrough has had con  siderable experience on f>e provincial  police for-e, and is well known throughout the Boundary. He is possessed of  tact and the necessary vigor, and  having no "axes to grind," should make  an excellent chief of police for the city.  The stuttz Dig theatre company  presented "Was She to' Blame" to a  crowded house on Monday, and the  popularity of the company was attested  in the fact that Tuesday and Wednesday's performances were attended by  even larger audiences. The company  show up to particular advantage in  "Was She to Blame", the several strong  characters being admirably represented  ���Aggie Marion Stuttz as leading lady,  won much admiration in her interpretation of a difficult role, and it is seldom  indeed more beautiful gowns are seen  than those worn by Mrs. Stuttz. J.G.  Stuttz who heads the company, is a  decided humorist, and his half century  in stage life has given him experience  that illuminates his representations.  "Ole Olson," presented on Wednesday  evening, with Lawrence Peterson in  the title role, found many warm friends  in the audience, who applauded him  throughout the performance.  At the close of the engagement Mr.  Stuttz announced that the company  would return here in the course of a  few weeks, and that the entire receipts  of the first night's performance would  be given to the Miners' Union, for  whose enterprise in building such a,  splendid opera house he expressed  much admiration. '  At Meeting of Council on Wed-  nesday Evening  The city council held its regular  session on Wednesday evening, Acting  Mayor Marshall, and Aldermen Cook,  Hillier, McKenzie, Rogers and Deane,  being present.  The principal business of the even'  ing was the re-appointing of H. Hartley to the position of city clerk and  treasurer. The application of N. J.  Carson for the position was discussed at  length, but the members of the council  appeared practically unanimous for retaining Mr. Hartley in the position,  the present clerk having proved a very  efficient official during his occupancy!  of the office. With the consent of Mr.  Hartley, however, he was re-nominated  for the position at the existing salary,  and on a ballot being taken, Mr. Hartley received four votes and Mr. Carson  one. The mayor then declared Mr.  Hartley elected to the office of city  clerk, treasurer and assessor.  A  communication   was  read  from  Nelson   city  council,   requesting that  '  Phoenix adopt "mountain time" as its  standard time.    The advantages of the  change   were  recited,   the  feature  of  which would be to take  more advantage of daylight.    By having the standard time put ahead an hour more daylight would be allowed people generally  for recreation during the summer.even-  ings.    The matter was discussed and  a committee of Aldermen Hillier, Cook  and McKenzie were appointed to interview the Granby company on the proposed change.  "Thecchyr^clerkicwas  instructed  to  secure tags and collect dog taxes.  The clerk was instructed to write  the school board and call attention to  the leaky condition of the school building, of which complaints have been  made.  On motion of Aldermen Cook and  Rogers the necessary proceedings will  be taken against all delinquent taxpayers, with a view to having a. tax  sale, in accordance with the municipal  act.

Many producers that had greatly curtailed or even suspended produc  tion in that year began again lo increase  output practically at   the  opening of  1908, and in spite of the low price  of the metal; nearly all the important  producers of 1907 wete in operation  throughout most of 1908, and a few  new companies began production during the year. The rate of production  has been steadily increasing, and is  now greater than at any other time in  the history of the industry.  The production of copper in   1908  has been ascertained by L. C.

The  system thus inaugurated provides for  annuities immediate and deferred. By  paying down a lump sum or lump  sums an individual may thereby purchase himself a small yearly income.  But mainly the Act contemplates that  by small periodical payments the  small wage earner may provide against  his old age a sufficient annuity to keep  the wolf from the door.      ;  By small contributions of 25   cent?  per week, begun at the  age of 20, a  man or woman may  provide a yearly  income of $120 against  the age  of  sixty.     On ceasing to   contribute at  sixty, the annuitant may let the annuity  lie till he or she arrives at the age of  sixty-five, and thereafter receive $200  per year.    These annuities are inalienable and absolutely free  from  seizure  for debt or for other cause.    Should a  contributor die before  he becomes a  participant in the returns the  amount  he has paid goes in to his legal repre  sentatives.   Many of the smaller wage  earners will not see their way clear to  contribute   weekly    payments.      But  even those should make the attempt.  If they   have to  drop out they can  get their money  back.   The arrangement makes the system a compromise  between a savings bank and an endowment   life   insurance    policy.      The  Government deserves credit for a step  in the right direction, and for a serious  effort to aid a  large element  in   the  community to provide for their  latter  days.    The  scheme decidedly ma es  for the encouragement of thrift.    But  its success depends  upon  the degree  of publicity it receives.  \      : PROVINCIAL. j  Creston is to have  a  new  Presbyterian church.

Resolved, that I went out for game  and I got a big game, which proves  that you can-get just  what you are  hunting for.  But remember that whatever you get has its price.    The price  of happiness is sleep, temperance and  repose.    The price of riches is responsibility, care and suspicion.    The price  of fun is late hours, sick headaches and  dyspepsia (it isn't worth it). If you want  fame you have  to  write autographs,  listen to flattery and send your regrets.  The price of success is wor*, that's all.  Those who dance must pay the fiddler.  The price of learning is  study.    The  price of knowledge is just experience  and  virtue is its own  reward.    Now  this is the truth, not theory.  Scientist, Analyst, Magistrate, and War Cor  respondent all Testify.  Men and women great in point of  knowledge, position and experience, say  that Zam-Buk stands superior to all  other healing substances. Read the  opinions of the following eminent  men :���  Mr. C. E. Stanford, of Weston,  King's Co., N S., a magistrate, a  School Commissioner, and Baptist Deacon, says :���"Zam-Buk cured me. of  eczema on my ankle, which had defied  every other remedy tried during twenty.years. It also cured me of piles;  and I take pleasure in recommending  it to my fellow-men."  Mr. Frank Scudamore, the famous  war correspondent, who has gone  through twenty-nine.battles and whose  dispatches during the Boer War were  so eaeerly read from coast to coast in  Canada, says:���  "Owing to the poisonous dye from  an undergarment penetrating a slight  scratch, my leg broke out in ulcers.  At one time I had seventeen deep  holes in my left leg, into each of which  I could put my thumb; and fonrteen  similar ulcers on my right leg. Remedy  after remedy failed to heal these, and  I was well with pain and lack of sleep.  Zam-Buk was introduced, and I am  glad to say that it gave me speedy.  relief. A few weeks' treatment resulted in a perfect cure of all the  ulcers."  Dr. Andrew Wilson, whose reputation as a scientist is world-wide, in a  book recently published ("Homely  Talks on First-Aid") says:���"Zam-  Buk may be relied upon as an antiseptic dressing which requires no prepar  ation and has the particular advantags  of possessing unique healing properties."  Mr. W. Lascelles-Scott the famous  analyst to the Koyal Commission for  Victoria, says:���-I have no hesitation  in certifying the entire purity of Zam  Buk. It is of great healing power for  open wounds or injuries."  So one could go on quoting authority after authority, all of the opinion,  based on personal tests, that Zam-Buk  should be in every home. Zam-Buk  is a sure cure for cuts, burns, scraches,  cold-sores, chapped hands, scalp sores,  ringworm, blood poisoning and eczema  It is also used extensively for piles,  for which it is without equal.

MAKE THIS UP  AT YOUR HOME  Home-Made, Though Effective Medicine for  Kidney Trouble  Here is a simple home-made mixture as given by an eminent authority  on Kidney diseases, who makes the  statement that it will relieve almost  any case of kidney trouble if taken  before the stage of Bright's disease.'  He states that such,symptoms as lame  back, pain in the side, frequent desire  to urinate, especially at night; painful  and discolored urination, are readily  overcome.    Here is  the recipe.    Try  it:  Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half  ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;  Compound Syrup Sasparilla, three  ounces. Take a teaspoonful after each  meal and at bedtime.  These ingredients are all harmless  and easily mixed at home by shaking  well in a bottle. This mixture has a  peculiar healing and soothing effect  upon the entire Kidney and Urinary  structure, and often overcomes the  worst forms of Rheumatism in just a  little while. This. mixture is said to  remove all blood disorders and cure  Rheumatism by forcing the Kidneys to  filter and strain from the blood and  system all uric acid and foul, decomposed waste matter, which cause these  afflictions. Try it if -you aren't well.  Save the prescription.  Ji  The Snow-Top group, near Creston,  has been sold.  Great interest is being taken in the  recent discoveries, of copper-bearing  ores in the vicinity of Vancouver.  The West Canadian Placer company  has been formed with a capital of  $75,000 to acquire an option on the  Turnei mining lease in the Cariboo.  East of Tuck Inlet, and about ten  miles from Prince Rupert, it is reported that six feet of ore has been  found that assays $30 in gold to the  ton.  Three feet: ot crude ore has been  struck in the Aurora mine at Moyie.  The mine is now in shape for shipping  and a carload or more of ore will be  shipped to Trail smelter in a few days.  M.

They  have made two shipments of crude ore  to the Norlhport smelter the returns  of which are favorable but there are  possibilities of their shipping this ore  to the Trail smelter.

EAT SAUSAGES  AND NEW BREAD  DOMINION  COPPER COMPANY  To the Bondholders, Creditors and Stockholders:  On November. 30ih, 1908, the National Trust Company of Toronto, which is the Trustee under the mortgage given to  secure the outstanding issue of $800,000 of bonds, convened a meeting bf bondholders >"n New York City after publication and  mailing of notice of the meeting lo all known holders. t Upwards of $600,000 of the bonds and large holdings of utock were  represented.  The security holder? were then informed of the pending proceedings for the foreclosuie of the mortgage under which  the property will shortly be sold, and that meantime a Liquidator had been appointed by the Canadian Couits to wind up  the Company.  A Committee w��s appointed at that meeting from among the bondholders and stockholders then present with power  to add to Uh number, to investigate the affairs of the Company and to formulate a Plan of Reorganization on bthalf of all  interests concerned.    Puranant to this request and appointment, the undersigned consented to act as ��uch Committee.  . The Company has a number of.promieing mining claims and the probabilities are in favor of the development of a  Targe tonnage of low grade ore, but the,outcome of development is accompanied  by  the uncertainties incident to every  mining venture. *'        "-'^'; ~  If the development work which is proposed to be done, uncovers a large tonnage, it will be necessary either to make  extensive alterations in the present smelter, or preferably, to construct an entirely new one on modern lines and in a better  locality.  Your Committee is advised that negotiations have been under way from time to time with one or more of the successful operating mining companies in the District, to acquire all or part of the properties of the company, but at a price which  would not have satisfied the claims of tlie bondholders and would have left nothing for the stockholders.  Yonr Committee is of the opinion that having regard to the large amount ol additional capital which would be required to develop these properties and construct a proper ameller, to the low grade of the ore which renders the enterprise  at. bee. strictly a manufacturing proposition with a narrow margin of profit under the most advantageous conditions of  management, antl assuming the price of copper at not lesa than 15 cents per lb., it may be advisable to sell the undertaking  rather than continue it, and to that end they ask authority as part of the accompanying plan, from the security holders to  make such a sale if in their judgment 1b found to be for the best interests of the security holders  PRESENT FINANCIAL CONDITION  l'riru-ipal of outstanding Bonds '. $   800,000  Interest unpaid from June 1st, 1908 (say) 7 months        28,000  Debts, including leins for workmen's wages [approximately]       100,000  l'resent outstanding Bhare capital, hOO.OOO shares, par $10 each     6,000,000  ���Church Services Tomorrow  i*r*'%*+>%^%*"aVWkW*VfV'm,i  Methodist���Service every Sunday  evening at 7.30; Sunday School at 2.30  p.m.; choir practice Friday evening  7.30; Geo E.

R/ Branch  The Canadian Pacific railway probably gives the best passenger service  across the North American continent,  burits"passenger accommodation inio  Phoenix is undoubtedly the worst inflicted by any railway corporation on a  city from which an equal amount of  business is secured.  It may not be generally known that  Phoenix is the thiid city in British  Columbia from a shipping revenue  standpoint, Vancouver and Nelson  alone exceeding. The C. P. R. derives  $1000 per day from Phoenix shipments  -^-and yet the excuse for a passenegr  service which the company gives this  city can hardly be termed much else  than a systematic service of knocking  Phoenix.  ���The car in which passengers are ex  pected to ride over the C.P.R. from  Eholt to Phoenix is not only filthy,  but it is dangerous. A more dismal  and dilapidated carivan could hardly  be found on the whole system���-express, baggage, mail, and a mixture of  humanity are all shaken up together  like a variety of ore samples. And to  a traveller over this line, the agony  lasts nearly two hours, coming a distance of ten miles. Bunched among  ore cars, the latter are shunted and  switched, and the "passenger" car  brought to the depot any old time.  Travellers will not come to Phoenix  over the C.P.R. if they can avoid it,  going to Greenwood and up the hill by  stage in preference. Almost daily do  travellers arrive in Greenwood and  phone to Phoenix merchants, offering  to pay expenses down the hill, in order  to avoid the C.P.R. trip. Phoenix has  the best hotel accommodation in the  Boundary, and when the C.P.R. gives  a service that discourages the travelling public from coming here, the railway is simply knocking the city.  The business men of Phoenix can  not move too soon in demanding a  proper and adequate service.  Don't Catch Cold  Be Comfortable  Be Healthy  FUR-LINED GLOVES  FUR-LINED CAPS  OVERCOATS  MITTS  T.
