Hodges is visiting  her sister in Indian Territory, and will  also go to Kansas City, St. Louis and  other places before returning to the  Boundary.  H. P. Dickinson, of Rossiand, agent  for the Giant Powder Co., Con., was  a visitor in the Boundary this week,  and called on his big customers, the  mining companies.  Alex Miller, of Greenwood, who is  extensively interested in several high  grade properties, returned this week  from a several weeks' trip to Chicago  and other eastern points.  George Doubleday, of New York,  vice-president of the Ingersoll-Rand  Co., was a recent visitor in the Boun-  daty, accompanied by R. P. Williams,  of Rossiand, the well known machinery  man.  O. B. Smith, Jr., of the Granby  mines, spent two or three days in Nelson this week, going there to attend  the Hill suit against the company,  which was practically thrown out of  court.  B. C.

Goepel, of Nelson,  Canadian agent for the Maple Leaf  brand of gutta percha blasting fuse,  was here Wednesday, on his first trip  through the Boundary, being much  pleased with the outlook for this section.  Darcy Weatherbe, field man for the  Mining and Scientific Press, of San  Francisco, was a visitor in camp last  Saturday, and took a look at theGran-  oy mines. He also visited the B. C.  Copper and Granby smelters. Mr.  Weatherbe is a technical man of ten  years' experience in Nova Scotia, and  will represent his paper from Mexico  :o the Yukon.

We are putting in a full line of  Wall  Paper and   Window Shades.  We   expect  Stock   in   about   two weeks' time.      It  is bought right  from   Factory, so prices will  be right.  According to all reports, the C.P.R.  is preparing to begin active construction on its line west from Midway this  spring.  Grand Forks has established a nine  hour day for   street work,   instead   of  ten, as heretofore, pay  to  be 30 cents  per hour.  Lots are selling in the new town of  Franklin City, in Franklin camp, and  James Anderson has applied for a  hotel license for that location.  James Bruno, an employee of the  Granby smelter, had his collar bone  broken last week by being caught between a wall and a feed car of No. 6  furnace.  Married, at Grand Forks, February  20th, by Rev. Father Bedard, of  Greenwood, Miss Kate Hanley, of  Seattle, and Michael Tompkins, the  itter being an old employee of the  Granby smelter.  Alderman II. Bunting and W. B.  Fleming have l> en appointed license  commissioners for Greenwood, and  Alderman Robert Mathison and James  Sutherland have been appointed polic"  commissioners of the same city.  Midway already announces a >.fth  of May celebration in that town, and  inasmuch as there are likely to be  many things doing thereabouts 6"y that  time, there is no reason why it should  not be a success. There is nothing  like starting in good time.  Martin Burrell, editor of the Grand  Forks Gazette, will represent the Kootenay Fruit Growers' Association at the  Dominion fruit growers' convention to  be held at Ottawa the latter part of  March, under the presidency of Hon.  S. A. Fisher, minister of agriculture.  The estimate for construction and  repairs on C.P.R. lines of the Kootenay division during 1906 amounts to  about $500,000. A large proportion  of this sum is intended for the.strengthening or renewal of bridges on that  portion of the road in the Boundary  country.  Grand Forks people are pleased at  the announcement that the Kettle Valley lines will extend its road up the  North Fork of Kettle river this Spring  and summer. This line will be brought  across Kettle river shortly and a new  station built in the heart of the city���  the Great Northern and C. P. R. stations being on the outskirts.  Total $2,011,448 $1,779,428  From Boston comes the information  that the annual report of the Bntisb  Columbia Copper Co. shows net profits for the year ended November 30th,  1905, of $102,907. Balance on December ist, 1904, was $88,921, making surplus oP$ 101,828..  President Underwood is reported as  saying: Against our profits for the  past year have been charged large  sums for the extensive developments  which have been going on in preparation for trebling the output of the  Mother Lode mine.  Development work has disclosed  large bodies of ore of higher grade than  that upon which we have been operating. This ore will become available  upon the completion of the company's  new smelting plant. The machinery  for this plant has all been contracted  for, deliveries to begin the latter part  of March, and complete installation is  expected during the coming summer.  The new plant will have a capacity of  50,000 tons per month as compared  with 18,000 tons per month with the  present plant. Both the mines and  smelting plant will have full electrical  equipment.  The company is entirely free from  debt with the exception of current bills  at the mines and smelter. During the  year there have been sold 37,500  shares of treasury stock, proceeds of  which have been spent upon the new  properties and plant.  It may be stated that over $93,000  was spent during the year for development work, all of which was charged  to operating expenses.  J. Marshall Appointed Acting  Mayor.  At Wednesday's bi-weekly  of the city council there were  Aldermen Marshall, Brown,  Kane and McKenzie. As  Rumberger is absent from the city  Alderman Marshall was appoinied as  acting mayor and took the chair. Drs.  Gordon and Boucher sent in their account for acting as medical health officers for the city from December 15th  to February 21st, amounting to $1,000,  accompanied by tbeii resignation  which latter was accepted. Tbe account was laid over, the communication accompanying it being as follows :  Phoenix, B.C., Feb. 21, 1906.  His' Worship the Mayor, and City  Council, of Phoenix.  Sirs:���We have the honor to report  on work accomplished re the recent  epidemic of typhoid and resign our appointments as medical health officers.  As to the sewerage situation, we  have wired to Dr. Fagan, the secretary  of the Provincial Board of health, and  received word from him that it will  take time to send us a sanitary engineer,  and till such time as he could be consulted with we deem it advisable to  make no recommendation, but leave  lhe mattei in your hands and in the  hands of the city medical health officer,  should you appomt one.  We have the honor to be, sirs,  Your obedient servants,  R. B. Boucher,  G. S. Gordon.  The clerk was directed to write to  the minister of mine; regarding the  regulation of the location of powder  magazines near the city. This was  done at the advice of Solicitor Gray.  Chief of Police Flood and Officer  Docksteader were authorized to collect  the dog taxes. Mr. Flood presented  a communication from the brass band,  asking for aid to purchase instruments,  and it was laid over.  A communication was read from the  provincial secretary notifying the council of the appointment of W. H. Docksteader as provincial constable without  salary as long as he should be chief of  police. Mr. Docksteader enjoyed his  new honors exactly 24 hours, when  Mr. Flood was appointed chief.  On recommendation of the   finance  committee, the following accounts were  ordered paid :    M. Mclntyre, $44.85;  Brooklyn hotel,   $315;   Pioneer  Co., $2S; Dr. Bruere, $210.  MR. HODGES  AT VICTORIA  Testified  in the  Power  troversy.  Con-  Mining Notes  Eight Hour Smelter   Bill Defeated.  Pub.  Orfanlziflf a Brags Band.  There has lately been a feeling that  a brass band should be organized in  this city, and Monday evening the  movement resulted in a meeting at the  city hall to consider the matter, when  it was found that at least 25 old bandsmen are now residing here. The  meeting was enthusiastic, J. A. Mc  Master being chairman and M. V.  Sherbino being elected secretary, and  a number of speeches being made.  After deciding that the time was propitious for taking up such an organization, it was decided to call it the  Phoenix Fire Department Band, and  to proceed at once with the securing of  the necessary funds for purchasing instruments, the committee for this purpose being J. A. McMaster, C. H.  F'lood, W. Pierce and M. V. Sherbino.  The instruments needed will cost from  $450 to $550, and this amount it is  expected to raise without great-trouble.  A committee on permanent organization, consisting of W. H. Docksteader,  J. Marshall and J. A. McMaster, was  appointed, and another meeting for  the purpose indicated was called for  Monday, March Sth.  Before ibe Tariff Commission.  Last summer when the Dominion  tariff commission was in the Boundary  on its western tour, and took testimony  here regarding the lessening or abolishing of duty on certain imports  which could not be obtained in Can  uda, it was arranged that further details should be presented to the com  mission at Ottawa. J. E. McAllister,  manager of the British Columbia Copper Co., will probably leave for Ottawa  today for the purpose of presenting  the mattter to the commission.  Plaintiffs Lost Both Cases.  Two suits for Damages were heard  before Mr. Justice Duff at the Nelson  assizes this week, and in both cases  the plaintiffs lost. The first of the  two cases was that of John Dale against  the B. C. Telephone Co. for $4,000  damages, on account of injuries received  last June by running into a telephone  pole near the first milk ranch below  the city. The learned judge practically  said, after hearing the evidence of the  plaintiff and his witness and declining  to allow the witnesses for defense to  be called, that there was no case, and  gave judgment for defendant.  Mr. Hill sued the Granby Co for  damages for the death of his son, Vernon Hill, who was killed at the Granby mines some months ago, while acting as brakeman on an ore train in the  No. 2 tunnel. Evidence was given for  the plaintiff, and the judge would not  tiear the defence, taking the case from  the jury, which had been drawn, saying lhat it was a case of contributory  negligence, or words to that effect, and  deciding for the delendant.  Deputy Collector Appointed.  William Delahay, the customs collector here, has recently been appointed  deputy inland revenue collector for  I'hoenix, and reports to J. E. Miller,  the inland revenue collector at Vancouver. While the amount of inland  revenue collections here is not large,  it is a great convenience to those interested to do this business with a  resident collector, rather than one located some miles distant at Greenwood  or Grand Forks. Although there is  no large demand at present for a  bonded warehouse here, this will  doubtless be arranged for in due time.  Mr. Delahay's first duty in his new  office was collecting the revenue on a  car load of malt, which arrived here  this week for the I'hoenix Brewing Co.  ��� A. B. W. Hodges, general superintendent of the Granby Consolidated,  returned last Wednesday, having spent  the last week or ten days on a trip to  Victoria, where he went to testify before the private bills committee of tbe  legislature, regarding the necessity of  allowing the West Kootenay Powt r &  Light Co. furnish electrical power for  the Boundary mines and smelters.  Besides Mr. Hodges, Manager J. E.  McAllister, of the B. C. Copper Co.,  and President Warner Miiler, of the  Dominion Copper Co., gave evidence,  and F. E. Begg, of London, England,  and Manager Fowler and Wm. Ander  son spoke for the Cascade concern,  which is seeking to curtail or prevent  the supplying of power in the Boundary by the West Kootenay Co.  The claim was and is made by the  Cascade people that permitting the  other company to furnish power here  would mean the practical wiping out of  the Cascade company, and at first they  claimed that they could supply the  needed power. When the testimony  of the smelter officials was given, however, the Cascade people were forced  to acknowledge that their abilities in  the electrical power line are not equal  to the demand, and would be far behind the demand in a short time-���so  great will be the increase this year by  all three Boundary smelters and their  mines  Before the committee this week,  when the final hearing was had, it was  proposed to let the Cascade company  distribute the surplus power that that  company itself could not generate, it  being acknowledged that such an arrangement would be a good thing for  the Cascade company, but to the contrary for the West Kootenay concern.  The committee has now taken all the  testimony wanted, and the matter will  come before the legislature for final  action.  There is no special disposition to do  anything to wipe out the Cascade concern's investment, but it is felt generally that the other company must be  permitted to do business in the Boundary, and that the march of progress  in mining and imelting in the Boundary must not be hampered in future  by lack of power���especially when it  can be readily had.  Regarding the eight-hour smelter  bill, the smelter superintendents who  were at the capital did not overlook  that. They were given to understand  by both government and opposition  last summer, that if the matter was not  arranged between the employees and  the employers before this session ofthe  legislative assembly, such a bill would  likely be introduced. The employers  now feel that, the matter having been  satisfactorily and amicably arranged before the legislature met, it is unwise to  go into the question with statutes.  When the vote on the bill was called  on this week Thursday, it was defeated  by 20 to 14.  Driving the long tunnel on the Gold  Bug is still being continued.  Last week, in one certain 24 hours,  the Great Northern took out 60 cars  of Granby ore, or over 3,000 tons.  One day this week the Granby  smelter treated 2,850 tons of ore, being high water mark for this smelter.  About 500 feet of diamond drill  work have so far been done on the  Belts and Hesperus group, which will  be continued for the present.  A Boston financial authority asserts  that Granby shares are now on a six  per cen' dividend basis, and seems to  expect three per cent semi-annual  dividends hereafter.  The Rossiand Miner states that before the end of 1906 the Granby Co.  will be using 5,000 h.p., the B.C. Copper Co., 2,000 h p., and the Dominion  Copper Co, 2,000 h.p.  In the tunnel being driven on the  Iron Clad, Wellington camp, good  galena ore has been encountered. The  owners are \V. J. Porter, G, W. Rumberger and Jack Farrell.  It is expected that more work will  be done this spring on the Monte  Ciisto group, north of the city, acquir  ed some time ago by the Granby Co.,  to prove the ore bodies.  It is expected that the work of excavating for the extensive enlargements  at the B. C. Copper Co.'s smelter at  Greenwood will be started next Monday, and be pushed vigorously till  completed.  A rich find of ore is reported from  the B. C. mine located near West-  bridge, 30 miles west of Midway. The  vein runs from one to four feet in  width, and carries as high as $1,978  per ton in gold and silver.  A piece of giant powder went off in  one of the furnaces of the Dominion  smelter at Boundary Falls last week,  damaging one of the water jackets and  requiring repairs. Occasionally this  happens in nearly all smelters.  The work of starting shipments from  the Granby's Gold Drop mine has been  somewhat .delayed by trouble in  promptly getting timber for the tramway, ore bins, etc.-. Lumber is coming  in now, however, and in about a  month, the Gold Drop will be shipping over the C. P. R., thus relieving  the strain on the main Granby mines.  Completing tbe Opera House.  Phoenix Miners' Union No. S has  decided to complete the lower floor or  opera house portion of the large building as soon as possible, so that it may  become a revenue producer at the  earliest possible date. This week a  force of six mtn was set to work on  the interior, and it is hoped that in  about a mnnth it can be put in shape  so that it can be used, even if not  then entirely completed.  This far the union has spent $18,000  on the building, and when the opera  house is fin illy and completely finished  as intended, it will stand the union  something like $20,000���a credit alike  to the union and to the city. Secretary Pickard states that there are still  a few shares ef the building stock  which can be had by anyone interested.  Latest Prices in Metals.

It appears that the B. C. Copper  Co. is well pleased with the results of  shipments of ore from the Napoleon  mine, at Boyd's, near Marcus, Wash.,  on which they have a bond, and which  is being actively operated in charge of  Harry Johns The sulphur contents  of the ore are most acceptable as a  flux, and the ore has been sent to both  the B. C. Copper and Dominion snielters. A small development plant has  recently been installed at tbe mine,  consisting of a live-drill Rand compressor, 50 h.p. boiler, etc. The ore  is hauled on wagons or sleighs to the  railway siding, but the surveys have  been made for both gravity und aerial  trams. The long tunnel is now in  over 200 feet.  Camp.   Pliocmx   Phoenix  .Deadwood  .Deudwood  1900  ��4,553  397  <1  O  O MINK.  j ,, Granby Mines....  , Snowshoe   tB. C Cupper Co.  Mother I.o<lc..

THE PHOENIX PIONEER
Three Reasons Why
TEA excels all other teas:
First:   Because it is grown in the best gardens
in India and Ceylon.
Second:    Because it is blended by competent
and experienced men,

Mints That "Make  Good."
In the world of business much admiration is, usually expressed for tht
man who has made good, as the expression goes: that is, for one who has
made a success of his vocation, and
has done it honestly and straightforwardly. And it is well that it should
be.so. Statisticians inform us that
about 95 per cent of the business men
of the world, sooner or later, at least
once in their lives, are unsuccessful,
but that they usually get on their feet
again.
Probably as great a percentage of
the mineral claims that are located fail
, to make good, from one reason or another. Undoubtedly the vast majority
have little of value in them, but it is
equally certain that many that have
not been profitable have not Oeen
given either the adequate financial or
technical management. The proper
mixture of brains and capital is as
essential in mining as it is many vocation, perhaps more so. How many
companies in British Columbia, lor in-,
stance, would have made a success of
the Granby mines ? We know that
few would have done so.
In the Boundary, perhaps as much
or more than in any other part of British Columbia, are numbers of mines
that have made good, or are in the
process thereof. And if we mistake
not, as the years roll around the number of such propei ties will be known in
increasing measure. This is a good
thing for the Boundary and a good
thing lor British Columbia, and a good
thing for those who placed their iinan-
. cial faith here. Not every hole in the t0 be 6o>0o°
ground in the Boundary is a mine, by
a good deal, but the proportion is
greater here than in most sections, be
it remarked. It meant and means
vast amounts of capital invested, and
•the best metallurgical skill combined
with business-like management, but it
has won here and will continue to win
and to make good.
penmg that are worthy
these is the liberal exercising of the
privilege, by members of His Majesty's
loyal opposition, of asking questions
regarding the conduct cf the business
of the g(ivernment--which, of course,
the government is bound to answer.
Some of the queries made are of the
most puerile kind, and on the face of
them can hardly have been asked for
purposes of information only.
For instance, there is good, old,
honest John Oliver,the wealthy farmer-
member from Delta—the man who
has always had a sore spot because he
was not asked to form a government
in the place of the Hon. Richard McBride. Mr. Oliver has succeeded in
using up more time of the legislature
in asking questions, and in securing
the answers thereto, than perhaps any
other member this session. If the
premier, or any government official,
found it needful during the past year
to travel on government business. Mr.
Oliver, if not some other opposition
member, wishes to know what the
premier paid for his sleeper or his
meals, or any and every other thing—
he wants to know all about it, and according to usage, he gets the information, useless though it may be. And
so on, through a whole list of foolish
questions, taking up valuable time
that might be much more profitably
employed.
One would think that even the opposition would get tired of that method
of earning their indemnity, but they
seem to enjoy it hugely—and then it
gives the government.clerks something
extra to do to look up the data required, it would appear, also, that
the members of the opposition have a
great fear that there is a lot of graft
about the government. Is it not about
time to put a stop to such boyish, obstructive tactics.
INTERNATIONAL
MAKES $67,327.54
Net    Profits    for    the    Year
1905
Annual  Meeting  in Spokane
Last Week.
It took three years of hard work to
get a custom house established here,
but persistence won, and the office is
one of the best paying small offices in
the province. It took a year to secure
mail service over the Great Northern
to Phoenix, and again persistence won
in a righteous cause. It pays to advertise a good thing.
The International Coal & Coke
Company, of Coleman, made a net
profit in 1905 of $67,327.54 and has
now a total surplus in its profit and
loss accouni of $201,527.69. No
dividend has yet been declared for the
year. The company is capitalized for
$3,000,000, of which $2,Soo,ooo has
been issued. The lisseis, including
coal lands, development, plant, real
estate, warehouse, stuck, cash, insurance paid, accounts rccceivabl-.-, and
coal in the tipple, .un-nint in value tu
$3o-7>2S3-39- I nc liabilities iu addition lo the   stuck   issued, amount lo
$27'.775-70-
The company owns 4,000 acres ol
land, extending seven miles alung
seams of coal, two of ihem S anil 13
feet wide respectively. The present
output is about 1,000. tons daily.
About 300 miners are employed, all
of whom live in the town of Coleman,
which has Soo inhabitants, a good
water system, electric lights, and thoroughly modem sanitation. The coal
cars are operated by compressed air.
As the veins lie along ihe banks of
Old Man river, a distance of 4,000
feet in from the river bank, give a
depth of 700 feet.
The company began operations in
October, 1904, and has made a profit
from the start. The big balance for
1905 was made despite the shut down
of three months on account of laboi
troubles. During 1905 the output
was 173,032 tons, and the operating
expenses were $237,029.11. During
the year $39,272.80 was spent on new
plant and equipment.
The company is composed mainly
of Canadians. The annual general
meeting was held in Spokane last week
Thursday. All the officers were reelected, as follows : President, Alfred
C. Flumerfelt; vice-president, general
manager and treasurer, Homer N.
Galer; secretary, William G. Gruves;
directors, the above-named and D.
Shults, and Clement S. Houghton.

STRICTLY BUSINESS
Good advertising is the antithesis of
secrecy.
The best advertising is the persistent kind.
It is as important that a house keep
faith in fulfilling its advertisments as it
is iu advertising at all.
If a merchant has things for sale
and is averse to having the public
know of it the public is not apt to become inquisitive.
Somebody reads every line of every
advertisement. Possibly no one person sits down and methodically goes
over every paragraph or division of the
advertisements, but each paragraph
and section will "hit" some one.

The Spokane Outburst, in its last
issue, has the following under the
head, "Those Humming Mines :"
"The Spokesman-Review says the
Boundary mines are 'humming.' Something else must be doing likewise, for,
according to the Review, the Boundary
is shipping ore at the rate of a million
and a quarter tons per day. Prodigious! When that is divided up among
the few hundred miners working in the
Boundary district, we only appreciate
the strenuosity of the miner's life—
either that, or the Review does not
know what it is talking about.

When we recall the fale of that New
York man who became insane because
possessed of two much filthy lucre, we
are convinced that it is the part of
wisdom to stick to the publishing business and avoid a similar fate.
a«»
A. S. Hood, the realty and insurance agent, reports that the prospects
for the ereccion of new buildings this
year are more than bright, plans for
some of them being now arranged.
One two or three story structure will
probably be built on Knob Hill avenue
for business purposes, and work should
be under way in a short time. There
is also probability that other business
places will be erected on that avenue.
In addition to those that'are projected,
others are being talked of, to say nothing of several residences that announcements have been made will be
built. A deal is under way for the
transfer of a business property on Dominion avenue, and it is known that
P. Burns & Co., Ltd., would be more
than willing to build a large central
market if the right arrangements for
the site can be arrangd. The Miners'
Union will also doubtless, in due
course, proceed with the finishing of
the commodious opera house part of
their splendid structure. Taking it
altogether, the sound ol the hammer
and saw will be heard again in no
small degree in Phoenix this year.
Recently the Pioneer received a
check from an Iowa bank, drawn on a
Chicago banking institution, for the
sum of only 25 cents, in payment for
a copy of the recently issued l.ohday
Number of this weekly. Now, as the
cost of cashing outside checks is about
25 cents, the question arises as to
what the editor of the Pioneer will do
with all this money. Receiving such
a large sum all at once, and in such a
tangible form, is ralher embarrassing.
Probably, however, it might be as well
to frame and hang the check in the
priming palace, is a warning to all and
sundry how not to do it.
aw
Seriously, however, the Pioneer has
received many different kinds of
money, so-called, for copies of that
Holiday Number, which really seems
to have caught on from the Atlantic to
the Pacific. Here's another. A Chicago man sent us some U.S. stamps
together with a Province of Quebec
registration ten cent stamp, which latter
was evidently in use before confederation. Another man in Ontario sends
us shinplasters for the Holiday edition,
etc., etc. But everyone of them had
the big number sent to them. Incidentally, there a few copies of the Holiday
Number left, and if the reader has
anything that resembles money—even
as aforesaid—he cannot invest it better
than in sending some of these copies
to his friends in the east, to let them
know what kind of a country he is
living in. A-idefrom personal matters,
it claims f> tell the whole story, and if
fiiends o!" ih j paper are to be believed,
it pretty nearly accomplishes what it
aimed at.    They can   be had   of  any
Boundary newsdealer.
««•
The Spokane Chronicle gravely asks
in two-inch   letters   on   the first page,
"Will  Jay P. Graves build a line from
Spokane to the Sound ?"    And then it
proceeds to elucidate why it, thinks the
manager of Granby Consolidated may
do this, having  floated   a little matter
of $15,000,000   in   the   east   for   this
purpose.       Possibly,   after    all,    Mr.
Graves   may run   a   trolley   line   from
Spokane fo Phoenix Just to show what
may be done, and then give us .a third
railway.
The Nelson Daily News strongly
opposes that city accepting any money
from Andrew Carnegie for the construction of a free library in that town. At
one time or another Mr. Carnegie said
things about Canada that the Nelson
News did not like, and so forsooth,
none of the Carnegie millions shall be
spent in Nelson if the News can help
it. What difference does it make to
the average man or woman, who might
use such a library to the greatest possible advantage, what Mr. Carnegie
thought or said ? Is not the library
just as useful, whether he did or did
not say those things—and doubtless
he is credited with statements that he
never uttered.
Wt have no small admiration for
the News, we must confess. Its editor
deserves success, and is gradually hewing it out. It has printed things that
we thought were much out of place,
but then we do not quit reading it on
that account. We hope we are too
sensible for such a policy. And if
Andrew Carnegie or the Daily News
wishes to build a public library in
Phoenix, let him come on. He'll get
a good Scotch welcome and a free site
thrown into the bargain.

In January the Nelson smelter produced 581 tons of lead.
D. R. Young is boosting the British
Empire mine, near Vernon
The ore body in the LeRoi No. 2,
Rossiand, is 1200 feet in length.
In 1905 the Crow's Nest Pass Coal
Co. made a net profit of $398,898.68.
The International Coal & Coke Co.
recently shipped 1250 tons in one day.
The cleanup of the Eva mill for the
January run has resulted in a gold
brick worth $4,800.
Last week the St. Eugene paid out
$32,000 in wages—the largest monthly
I ayday in its history.
Tho C.P.R. has ordered 500 new-
steel drop-bottom gondolas for use in
the Crow's Nest section.
Another carload of machinery has
arrived lor the La Plata mine, and the
concentrator will now soon be in operation.
A syndic ite of Nelson men, having
secured control of the Majestic, a Lar-
deau property, has arranged for funds
to work the mine.
The recent reduction of from $15 to
$12 per ton treatment rate, by the interior lead smelters, is a great incentive to the silver-lead miners.
The lessees of the North Star, in
East Kootenay, which was reported
worked out two or three times, are
making regular shipments of good ore.
So far this year the mines of
Kootenay and Boundary have produced some 250,000 tons of ore, of which
amount Boundary mines shipped 180,-
000 tons.
Windy Arm, in upper B.C., is being
much talked about for silver-lead discoveries. Scores are flocking in, and
the new camps appear to have all the
characteristics of the early Slocan
boom. The ores are rich, and capital
is being invested on a large scale.

A.,  Seattle.]  ��r�����������"M  Trail blazer, pioneer, trapper, prospector, mining expert, orator, after-  dinner speaker, winemaker and loyal  friend���such is Robert Allen Brown,  of Grand Forks, whose interesting char  acteristics have given him almost as  great prominence as any other individual in British Columbia. The subject  of this sketch is better known under  the cognomen of "Volcanic," or "Sunset" Brown. Wherever miners gather,  mention of his name is sure to start a  series of stories, not all of them at his  expense.  To narrate the adventures and hard  ships "Volcanic" has experienced during the past twenty.years in the then  unknown interior would fill u volume.  Mr. Brown was the original locator of  the famous Sunset mine on Copper  mountain, in the Similkameen, and  which is now being jointly developed  by interests said to be allied with J. J.  Hill, president of the Great Northern  Railway, and the British Columbia  Copper Co. Mr. Brown is still the  owner of the equally famous Volcanic  ���-now Volcano���mine, situated on the  North Fork of the Kettle river, about  twelve miles north of Grand Forks.  I lis later clays have been devoted to  fighting lawsuits single handed against  a host of people, some of whom Mr.  Brown has not hesitated to describe as  "parasites of the first water." It is  worthy of note that he has never appeared in court as a plaintiff, and his  vast mineral wealth naturally resulted  in efforts on the part of various individuals to tie him up. Mr. Brown is  of a confiding and unsuspicious turn  of mind, and it is estimated by friends  that the entanglements of which he  has been the victim have cost him  over a million dollars.  At fll! events, Mr. Brown's name is  indissolubly linked with the early history of the Kootenays and the Boundary district. He was born at St.  Martin's, N.B., in 1S49.  His mother, now aged eighty-seven,  is hale and hearty. Mr. Brown is the  seventh son in a family of seventeen  children. He left school at the age of  ten, having only acquired a rudimentary education in a backwoods school.  It is Mr. Brown's proudest boast that  he is a self-educated man, and all the  knowledge on economic subjects he  subsequently acquired he ascribes to  his own original research and investigations.  Hard times prevailed in many parts  of the east, despite the fact that the  local banks possessed enormous surplus of funds. Mr. Brown determined  to study the cause of these abnormal  conditions. Discarding many of the  principles of Ricardo, John Stuart  Mill and Bonatu> Price, he started out  on an original line of investigation. He  now has arguments for the faith that is  in him. Broadly speaking, he is satisfied that the industrial and financial  systems at one stage of theit evolution  halted, and then went off at a tangent.  When Mr. Brown amasses millions out  of Volcanic, one of his missions in life  will be to straighten those lines of  curvature. Such high minded altruism  and disinterestedness is to be commended. The present system, Mr.  Brown maintains, tends to make the  rich richer and the poor poorer.  Impressed with the conviction that  honest labor had belter opportunities  in the west, Mr. Brown proceeded to  Michigan, then the greatest lumber-  producing state in the Union. This  was in 1881. Then he reached Minneapolis and Duluth, and the Lake of  the Woods country.  While the C.P.R. was tinder construction, he came further west and  prospected through the Selkirks and  Rockies for forty miles on each side of  the route. He found nothing worth  locating owing to the cost of development. Then he fashioned a ''dugout"  and floated down the Columbia to  Colville. His next objective point  was Bonner's Ferry.  In midwinter, i.SSrt, while in Colville, a Swede came in and exhibited  samples of rich free-milling gold that  he claimed he hud found on the North  Fork of the Illecillewaet. The assays  were fabulous. Al. Benoit and Joe  Mickey got the news and slatted for  the find to make locations. Brown  also got the tip. The partners went  by rail to Seattle, boat to Vancouver,  and thence by construction trains and  dogsleds to Revelstoke. On their arrival they were greeted by Brown, who  jokingly informed   them that   lie  had  taken a short cut across country on  snowshoes and had made the first  location.  Mr. Brown's acquisition of Volcanic  and his subsequent relocation of the  property are matters of history. In  order to earn sufficient funds to develop his claim and to fight lawsuits he  trapped for several winters in the region  between the North Fork and ihe Arrow lakes. He regularly visited a line  of traps stretched over a distance of a  hundred miles. At night he slept  under a piece of drilling, and trusted  to a fire to keep himself warm He  only carried one blanket.  Mr. Brown shines as an after-dinner  speaker. No banquet in the upper  country is considered complete by  many unless he is down for a speech  on the mining industry. He was  laughed at years ago when he prophesied the future greatness of the  Boundary as a mining district. "Volcanic" is still as vigorous and energetic  as ever. Of late years he has been  engaged in the manufacture of Oregon  grape wine, a famous beverage which  he describes as a panacea for every  ill. Every cent Mr. Brown makes is  devoted to fighting the lawsuits that  been brought against him.  His fame is also based on lhe advocacy of a fifteen-mile tunnel proposition. He proposes to devote his sur  plus wealth to the driving of a vast  working or bore extending through the  heart of the Boundarv district, tapping  all the mines at a depth of fifteen hundred or more feet. He is confident  that the project is feasible. Mr. Brown  is a man of big ideas who is living a  generation ahead of his time. Equally  radical views on other questions are  championed by him with a fearlessness  which is admirable. He has no use  for religion but champions a high eth  ical code. If his ideas prevailed  churches would be abolished to give  way to more schools and halls of  science.  51 r. Brown is sincere, and it is well  known that his opinions have incurred  him deep enmity. Many in the  Boundary who formerly scouted his  tunnel project as visionary, hope now  to see it realized, together with "a  string of smelters extending from the  Volcanic to Grand Forks," and a general sentiment prevails that he may live  to reap in the shadow of his declining  years the financial reward he has so  strongly merited.

And swelled by the heavenly throng:  "For  ages I've waited and sting to my  lyre,  At the doors of the region of light;  The knockers I've watched as they went  to the tire,  While  the  hustlers all turned to the  right.  The hustlers who   labored, the   hustlers  who wrought,  And gave to the city their might���  Oh, the knockers will  roast  win-re   Ihe  climate i9 hot,  But the hustlers will turn to the right.  What odds though the hustlers on earth  were bereft,  When awaits them eternal delight,  For now, when the knockers all turn  to  the left.  The hustlers come in by the right.  So go to the captain, oh hustlers,  And call for a crowii  and  garment of  white,  And  play on  your  harps   through  the  centuries all,  While the hustlers come in by ihe right.

AN    EVERPRESENT   FOE.  The soldier and the sailor are especially subject to  catarrh in some form or phase.  Exposed as they are to constant changes, subject as they  are to various vicissitudes, and all kinds of climate, wet  and dry, night and day, they find catarrh to be their most  Insidious and everpres'ent foe.  In the barracks and on the field, Peruna is equally  efficacious.  Taken in lime, it will absolutely prevent catching cold.  PE-RU-NA  AN   ABSOLUTE   SPECIFIC.  Not Fit for Publication.

After a cold, has become established, Peruna will break  it up quicker than any other remedy known to man.  Even after a cold has become settled in some organ of  the body Peruna can be relied upon to promptly dispel it.  Peruna will cure catarrh, whether acute or chronic, but  a few doses taken in the first stages of the disease will be  more effective than when the disease has become chronic.  If you suffer from catarrh in any form, do not neglect  it. Take Peruna at one*. Delay* in. sucb matters are  dangerous.     RECOMMENDS   PE-RU-NA.

They include  the following : No liquor selling between 11.30 p.m. and 6 a.m.; no liquor  selling between 11.30 Saturday night  and 6 a.m. Monday following; no  gambling in any foim ; all licensed  premises to be kept in perfect sanitary  condition and subject to inspection  weekly; no frosting of bar room windows, and when closed all screens and  blinds to be removed from windows ;  no liquor selling on Sunday by holder  of bottling or wholesa'e license.

The chaplain on a certain battleship  was giving a magic lantern lecture, the  subject of which was "Notes and Scenes  from the Bible." He arranged with a  sailor who possessed a gramophone, to  discourse appropriate music between  the slides. The first picture shown  was Adam and Eve in the Garden of  Eden. The sailor cudgelled his brain,  but could not think of anything appropriate. "Play up," whispered the  chaplain. Suddenly a large idea struck  the jolly tar, and���to the great consternation of the sky pilot and tht  delight of the audience���the gramophone butst forth wiih the strains of  "There's Only One Girl in the World  for Me."

Will Raise Cburcb Defct.  Thursday evening the board of managers of St. Andrew's Presbyterian  church met at the small manse, members of the Ladies' Aid also being present by invitation, as well as several  from Greenwood interested in the denomination.
