GUGGENHEIMS  WANTM.&B.  Properties Recently Examined  ���On Their Behalf.  Tuesday morning about ten o'clock  both mine whistles gave the dreaded  alarm of fire throughout the city; both  hose companies and nearly the entire  balance of the population responded,  and before the fire was put out the  Brooklyn and Phoenix hotels were in  ashes, with pretty close calls for the  postoflice block opposite, as well as  the Mint hotel and other buildings on  the same side of Dominion avenue.  As nearly as can be learned the fire  started   in   the  second story  of   the  and is considered  to be one of the  - i ���. '  best comers in the pp.  The Phoenix: hotel, owned by G.  W. Rumberger, was built nearly six  year's ago, and was1: the first structure  erected on Rumberger|s subdivision of  Phoenix. ��� It was ,1*0- and i^iialf  stories in helghti and plastered  throughout. W..LI Dunn, who has  had the bar for two or three, years,  sustained a totaUoss. j The Phoenix,  during the first year'after building, enjoyed one of the largest trades of any  - - j; - 4 ' -': -  BROOKLYN    HOTEL,   BURNED DOWN   TUESbAY.  Brooklyn hotel from a  heating stove, [hotel in the Boundary, as for months  it was the only licensed house in  Phoenix. -,< -  The new sheathing1, placed on the  side of the Mint hotel, by J. H. Graham, the- .��wrier, Wst summer, .undoubtedly helped materially to save the  building. As it is, the building was  badly scorched, although the insurance will doubtless coverall loss.  W. J. Cramer, who occupies the  one-story barber shop adjoining the  Mint, has now been in three fires here,  and says he is getting used to it. He  was doing business again the afternoon  of the .fire.  Following are the estimated losses:  1IC     illjllll-   t . .  a Brooklyn hotel, building $3,000  nent danger of an extensive connagra- ���        ���      mrniture ,j000  3,000  where Mrs. Wall was in charge. In a  twinkling the house was ablaze, the  flames going both up and down stairs  and into the Phoenix hotel adjoining.  With such great rapidity did the fire  spread that a dozen or more men, off  work from the night shift at the mines,  had barely time to escape, and some  jumped from the second story windows, and another was rescued from  third story windows by ladders.  Smoke and flames rolled up to the  heavens as the fire gained headway,  and not a spectator would have given  a dollar for all the buildings on that  side of the street.     When  the  immi-  tion was appreciated, many willing  hands began to remove furniture and  valuables from the Mint, Butte and  Norden hotels and other buildings.  As is always the case, much of this  was ruined m moving.  Both volunteer hose companies responded quickly to the alarm, and  while there was a little delay in getting  water fumed on, owing to a defective  hydrant, splendid work was done by  the fire boys when water did begin to  Howl At first the streams were piaying  on the pos'office block, which would  undoubtedly have gone from the intense heat, as it was smoking, but for  the water. It was so hot that while  one gang held the nozzle, another  threw blankets over them, and then  heaped the blankets with snow���and.  then. Ihe first gang, would be relieved.  But the postofnee block was saved, as  was also the Mint hotel, right in the  path of the fire. No one, for ii time,  thought there was the barest possibility of saving the Mint, but it was done  by the most strenuous and dangerous  of work on the part of the fire fighters,  although the side of the building was  practically ruined and the flames got  through into the lower floor at one  time.  When the alarm was sounded, Manager J.L. Martin, of the water company, at once hurried to all the valves,  and saw that they were open in the  water system, so as to draw on the reserve tanks at the Granby mines. Had  it not been for these tanks, no one can  tell where the fire would have stopped.  Very likely, it would have taken both  sides of Dominion avenue.  The Brooklyn hotel was purchased  last summer from F. J. Finucane by  James Marshall and E. P. Shea, since  which time they have spent a-^considerable amount in repairing the building. So rapid was the spread of the  flames that almost nothing was saved.  and about 35x65  feet m size.    It was  built five years ago by W. T.

Alderman Marshall has expressed  the intention of rebuilding the  Brooklyn hotel better than ever.  Ou the night following the fire both  mines were short of men, owing to  celebration of the victory over the  flames.  Forty tons of ice, just stored in the  basement of the Brooklyn hotel, are  still smouldering from the sawdust  covering it.  The last large fire in Phoenix occurred just five years ago; (when the  Wm. Hunt* Co.'s store, the Imperial  hotel and the Baldwin block were  wiped out.

It now appears that the Guggenheim  Exploration Co., one of the strongest  financial concerns in the United  States, and extensively interested in  mining propositions, was behind the  examination recently made by M. M.  Johnson, M.E., of the properties ofthe  Montreal & Boston Consolidated, and  the prediction is made in the east that  the Guggenheims will shortly take a  large interest in the company, as a result of the examination. Mr. Johnson  was most favorably impressed with  what he saw .in the Boundary, and  thert seems to be no question but that,  on the whole, his report to the Guggenheims will be a favorable one.  Here is the way the story comes from  the east: '  Samuel Untermeyer, as counsel for  various New York Stock Exchange  creditors of Munroe & Munroe, arranged a settlement whereby creditors  will receive 100 cents on the dollar.  The Guggenheim Exploration Co., of  which company Mr. Untermeyer is  general counsel, has secured an option  on a large block of the stock of the  Montreal & Boston Co. at $1 per  shaie. A Guggenheim expert is now  examtng properties and if he reports  favorably, the option will probably be  exercised.  The settlement provides for a cash  payment on the part of the underwriting syndicate of $100,000 and the de  posit of 225,000 shares of the Montreal  & Boston stock- taken at $1 per share.  In addition is the Guggenheim option  on the above stock and other stock in  hands of the brokers, which option is  good for 20 days.  With the Guggenheims in British  Columbia, with the vast wealth of the  Exploration company back of them,  an effort will probably be made to rival  the Granby company in copper output.  The Montreal & Boston company has  good mines, well equipped, and a  smelter with two furnaces The Montreal & Boston troubles have been on  the promotion end, not the property  end.  Boundary Mining Notes  GT. NORTHERN  HAULING ORE  Sent First  Train   Out   Last  Wednesday.  From Granby   Mines to the  Granby Smelter.  .       W. Rumbereger, w-ete broken, as were  The building was three stories high, aiso the wjn(jows in the store of the  Wm. Hunter Co., Ltd., by the intense  heat.  Last Wednesday, for the first time,  the Great Northern railway began  hauling ore from the mines of Phoenix,  the shipments going from the Granby  mines to the Granby smelter. The  cars used for the traffic are made of  steel,and of are somewhat different construction from those in use so long in  the Boundary by the Canadian Pacific.  It is the expectation, for the present,  that the Great Northern will take out  about ten cars of Granby ore daily, or  about 500 tons, which amount will  later be.increased. The ore shipped  all comes from the No.. 3 tunnel level  of the Granby mines, being hauled to  the new ore bunkers by an electric  locomotive, recently installed at that  level, and which operates with the  greatest satisfaction to the management.  The new giant ore crusher at the  No. 3 ore bins, is not yet in working  order, but is likely to be ready for general use in the course of two or three  weeks, wheh the shipments from this  level may be somewhat increased.  During January the Elkhorn mine's  50-ton shipment netted $147 per ton.  Considerable free gold has been encountered in the tower workings of the  Last Chance.  Last week an ore body was encoun  tered in the Barbara that ran $153 to  the ton,'of wnich $112 was gold.  List Monday the work of placing  ore in the No. 3 ore bins from the  Granby Mines, for shipment over the  Great Northern, was started.  It is said that the automatic electric  feeding device, now being installed at  the Granby   smelter,  will   save   the,  labor of some-So men, or $So,ooo per  annum.  t  Returns from the last car of ore sent  out by the Skylark, to the Nelson smelter, gave $93 per ton. The new boarding house at this mine is being completed this week by AiexStrachan, and  wi.l soon be occupied by the increased  force.  Martin McHale, of Phoenix, has  been awarded the contract for a 300-  foot tunnel on the Gold Bug, there  biing some eighteen bidders. As soon  as he gets his boiler on the ground he  will start work. The proposed tunnel  will lap three leads at depth, and probably half a dozon men will be employed.  Six men are employed on the Wol-  ford group, on Fourth of July creek,  near the Belts and Hesperus. The  property has an immense showing of  iron ore, and there is considerable  talk of the owners arranging for the  erection of a smelter m the near future,  after the property has been proved  further with development,  It is understood that the increasing  demand for electric power in the  Boundary has impelled the Cascade  Water, Power & Light Co. to look into the matter of adding another unit  to the generating plant at Cascade,  which will then be 4,000 horse power.  There is no doubt but that this would  be entirely taken up as soon as available.  The dumps of the Brooklyn and  Stemwinder mines, which were not  sold with the mines to the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated, have been bringing cash to the coffers ofthe Dominion  Copper Co. Since last fall about  6,600 tons have been shipped, mostly  to the Trail smelter, and some cars  have given particularly good returns  in both gold and copper. The dumps  were estimated to have between 10,000  and 20,000 tons of ore.  J. E. McAllister, the efficient smelter superintendent for the B. C. Copper company, has gone to New York  to lay before the company's directorate  the plans for the proposed enlargements  of the company's plant at Greenwood.  If the present plans are carried out  more furnaces will be added sufficient  to make the daily reduction capacity  of the plant 1800 tons. The excellent  condition of the company's mines and  the high price of copper doubtless  stimulates the management to hasten  the improvements.  WINNIPEG MINE  WAS SOLD  Was Taken by W. T. Hunter For $2,500.  Something of History of  the  Property.  Late last week the assets of the  Winnipeg Mines, Ltd., were sold by  A. Leamy, county court judge, ,to satisfy the labor leins against the property of the company. The property  consisted of the well known Winnipeg  mine, in Wellington camp, known as  Lot 599, Group 1, Osooyos division,  with mine buildings, compressor, etc.  W. T. Hunter, of Greenwood, was the  purchaser at $2,500, ten per cent, of  which was paid down,the balanc* to be  paid in six months. The sale was -1 ,  accordance with an order of the cuuit,  asking for tenders for the projierty,  and the tender of Mr. Hunter was tho  only one put in.  The labor leins against the Winnipeg amounted to $3,4oc, besides other  leins and judgments. The court costs  were about $160, so that the 27 labor  lein claimants will have the sum o'  $2,340 to divide between them.  It is understood that Mr. Hunter  represents a s 'tid'^ate composed o;  himself, his b all 1 -, Charles D. Hunter and James H ,n-��r, W. S. Macy,  and A. B.

The.^.Winnipeg was  located 111^895^ ano^hiS shipped all  told over 5,000 tons af ore to the .different smelters. ��� A corporation, called  the Winnipeg Mining & Smelting Co ,  was organi7ed in 1897, which operated  the Winnipeg for some years. Fin illy  the company was reorganized' as the  Winnipeg Mines, Ltd., and'mauager  Richard Plewman made a valiant effort  to put the property on a paying basis.  Fire overtook the company, however,  in May, 1902, destroying severa'ofthe  mine buildings, the property being idle  for a year and a half after that.  In the fall of 1903 the charge, ior  freight and treating the ore Hiving  been reduced, Mr. Plewman made an  other attempt to save th'e property for  the shareholders. In this he wjs not  successful, however, as action was be  gun by the -Bank of Montreal .ur an  old debt of tho company, and the  mine ceased operations in Nov-anntr,,  1903. The bank eventually, wa - no:  successful in: establishing the priority  of its claim,. though -the case dragged  through the courts.for months. Nearly  a year ago an attempt was made by  order of the court 10 sell the assr ts ol  the company at auction, but there were  no bidders;      ..

They seem to know when  a good thing is in sight.  An old lady who died in Montreal  at the age of 104 years, had smoked  habitually since she was nine years of  age. This, says the Nelson Daily  , News, recalls the comment of the Englishman on Che demise of an aged total  abstainer: "They may stand it for  years, but it is bound to fetch them at  4"Iast:." '    ,  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were 7,130 tons, or 37,^81 tons for the  year.  .Preparations are being, made to receive ore at the new Sullivan smelter  at Marysville.  Work has been resumed at the Sullivan mine, East Kootenay, with a  force of 30 men.  The Marysville smelter will use the  Huntingdon-Heberlein process for the  treatment of its ores.  With the removal of W. L.Germaine  from Grand Forks to Vancouver the  Boundary loses a good business man,  one who has made many friends in  this section during the six years he has  resided here.

A Bloated Stomach.  Distensions and pains fiom indigestion are cured quickly by NerviPne  When you get an attack of stomach  trouble take a stiff dose of Nerviline,  which is perfectly harmless but marvellously quick in effecting a lasting  cure. "I was once taken ill with  stomach trouble" writes Edward Row-  ell of Rochester. "I was in great pain  and distress but half a teaspoonful of  Nerviline fixed me up in a few minutes. I can recommend Nerviline for  sick headache and cramps and consider if an invaluable household remedy."  Try it yourself.    Price 25c.

Well most of us would pass  Slocan, will pay a $20,000 dividend, Up the position, surely.   Manager Mar-  While John Houston is attending to  his'legislative duties���not to say muni-  -cipal and editorial���he has left his  Nelson Tribune to the tender mercies  of William Blakemore, who is almost  as versatile as Nelson's first and last  mayor, being mining engineer, preacher and editor combined. But there is no  danger, at least, of the Tribune falling  into a Liberal rut.  making a total of $300,000 so paid by  this mine.  Patrick Clark has struck a 20-foot  ledge of $175 free milling ore on the  Kootenay Belle group, near Salmo.  which he recently bonded.  During the last year the Le Roi  mine shipped 160,000 tons of ore,,  that averaged $10.94 per ton. For the  last six months, under general manager A. J. McMillan, who has recently  been re-elected to the position, the  mine has been steadily making money.  Por the second time m its history,  Phoenix had a serious baptism of fire  this week, destroying property estimated to be worth at least $15,000.  It was a fortunate thing for property  owners that a reserve supply of water  for fire purposes was kept on hand for  just such emergencies. Every one  unites, also, in saying that those who  fought the fire did the very best of  work.  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.   For sale by all druggists.  tin has certainly had his troubles this  last fall and winter, in endeavoring to  snpply customers and the C. P. R. together, when there is not half enough  aqua pura to go around, and at the  same time see that there is a reserve of  in case of fire. It was a most fortunate"  thing that there was water last Tuesday,  or the disastrous fire would have done  twice as much damage as was done.  Mr. Martin is growing grey in the  water service, and no wonder.  Chamberlain's Stomach and   Liver   Tablet*.  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.  For All Purpose*. 'I'.

PROVINCIAL.  Premier McBride has succeeded in  showing a balance on the right side of  the provincial ledger for the first time.  But one is not surprised to note that  the   Liberals pick the statement to  pieces and endeavor   to prove  that  there  is  a   deficit.   Mr.   McBnde's  position, on assuming power, was anything but enviable, so deeply had the  province been plunged into debt by  previous adminstrations.     He should,  at least, be given credit for what he has  accomplished.  Fernie is to have a militia corps of  two companies.  The Okanagan Herald, Vernon, has  discontinued publication.  The New Westminster city council  is figuring on a system of sewerage.  A public school has been establish-  ad at the Nickel Plate mine, Camp  Hedley.  The C.P.R. intend to greatly improve tbe Sandon and Nakusp branch  this year and will employ over 250  men the coming summer.  There has been a big increase in the  assessed valuation of the property of  Cranbrook during the past year. This  )ear it is about 100 per cent, more  It has been stated that Ross Thompson, the founder of Rossiand," has gone  to Tonopah or Goldfields, Nevada; and  will endeavor to gather together another fortune. Mr. Thompson is , remembered by many of the old timers  in the Kootenay and Boundary. From  the sale of lots in the Rossiand townsite  in the boom days he was made coin:  paratively wealthy, but unfortunately  it did not stay with him long. Then  he took a flyer in stocks of various  kinds, and is a large holder in Oro  Denoro, among others. Mr. Thompson's friends hope to see a turn in his  foi tunes soon.  nt  D. R. Young's townsite, eight miles  from Vernon, is called Larkin. If<D.  R. is as successful in this as he was in  floating Ashnola 'Smelter, Ltd., and  Similkameen Valley Coal Co., Ltd.,  etc., etc.. he will doubtless make a  wad from Okanogan dirt. Lots' of  people all over the Kootenays and Yale  will remember Mr. Young and his 'en-1  terprise.  JOB PRINTING,  JOB PRINTING  " fOB PRINTING.
