STILL WANT A  CUSTOM HOUSE  Phoenicians    Resolve    Once  More on Subject  Also Ask For Mails on Great  Northern.  The Phoenix Board of Trade has  not been a particularly live' organization for the last year or two, hut from  appearances it will' soon attain its old  effectiveness. A good meeting was  held last Friday at the Pioneer office,  and Isaac Crawford was elected to the  chair, with W. B. Willcox as secretary.  A letter was read from Mayor Rumberger from New York city, advising  the sending once more of resolutions  to tlie Dominion government asking  for the establishment of a custom  house in Phoenix, and also fo ��� tlie establishment of a mail route on the  Great Northern extension to I'hoenix.  On motion the following resolution  was adopted regarding a custom house,  and ordered sent to Duncan Ross, our  member at Ottawa, Senator H. Bos-  tock, and to lion. William Patterson,  the minister of customs at Ottawa:  Whereas, the City of Phoenix is the  largest and most important town with  out a customs officer in the Province  of British Columbia, and probably in  the Dominion of Canada; and, .  Whereas,, the largest metalliferous  mines in Canada, which in 1904 pro  duced gold, copper and silver valued  at more than $2,000,000, immediately  adjoin and penetrate under the City of  I'hoenix; and,  Whereas, the mines immediately adjoining the City of Phoenix shipped  more than 580,000 tons of copper-  gold ore in 1904, employing a large  number of workmen, and said t mines  paid freights of-more than $1,000 per  day; and,  Whereas, great quantities of valuable  mining machinery and other merchandise have been and are still being imported into Phoenix by the mining  companies and the merchants of this  city; and,  .Whereas, a branch of. tlie Great  Northern railway has just been completed to Phoenix; giving more direct _.  access to American markets, on ac- And Valuable Contents Were  count of which  tlie -importations  to Secured.  Phoenix  will  necessarily be larger in  the future, Phoenix now also being the  nearest  receiving point for direct import freight shipments  destined  for Strong  Box  Went   Through  Greenwood; and, -.1-  Whereas, the lack of a customs officer has caused and still causes people  of Phoenix the greatest possible hardship, expense and annoyance every  day in the year; be it therefore,  Resolved, that the Phoenix Board of  FIRE BOYS ARE  <_OMMENDED.  Mr. Mills Gives Them Much  Praise.,  Editor Phoenix Pioneer:  ' Dear Sir:-���Througlrthe columns of  your highly popular paper I wish to  state that 1 consider the work of tlie  Phoenix Fire department is deserving  of much praise and'appreciation.  In the capacity of ;i fire insurance  agent I tnke much" interest in watching  the work of firemen in their fighl  against the flames, of which I see considerable here in Seattle, and I can  hardly understand how, tlie firemen  there saved any portion of the business  district in that part of the town where  the fine occurred.  While the companies I represent  there, carried insurance in and on the  building!-- destroyed, together with  risks on other business blocks in ihe  immediate vicinity, I have always  considered the fact that should, a fire  occur in either the Brooklyn or Phoenix hotels it would' endanger lhe balance of the street, more than a fire in  any. other part, and from the way fires  seem to get away from what they consider here a "crack ^department"' with  all modern equipment and under no  more unfavorable conditions than existed there, as agent for the Atlas and  Guardian companies I wish to show  my appreciation and add my quota of  praise to those men who ��� must have  worked with such 'good tact and business like methods in controlling such  a fire as must have raged when those  large wooden structures were in flames,  thereby saving further loss both to my  companies and the citizens in general.  Trusting you will give this space in  your columns andthanking you in advance for same, I "am,  Respectfully yours,  J. E. Mills.  Seattle, Wash., Feb. 21, 1905'.  MR. DELAHAY  CRACKED SAFE  Brooklyn Fire.  Tuesday;'evening William  Delahay     the well known ex-aldenn,m and b'ack-  Trade earnestly requests  once  more I smith at the Brooklyn mine, essayed a  that the Dominion Government appoint a customs officer and establish a  customs office in Phoenix withoLt  delay.  A resolution was also adopted regarding the mail service as follows,  and ordered sent to our member and  to Postmaster General Mulock:  Whereas, the Great Northern rail  way has completed a branch of its line  from Grand Forks to Phoenix, and  passenger trains on said branch are  announced to be in operation on  March 6, 1905; and,  Whereas, all mails from the United  States are now delayed one day in  Grand Forks, being brought to Phoenix, Greenwood and other Boundary  points by the C.P.R. on the day after  their receipt in Grand Forks, on account of the two railways not connecting; and,  Whereas, this delay in the receipt of  mails is now unnecessary and detrimental to the business interests of the  Boundary and to Phoenix; be it therefore  Resolved, that the Phoenix Board of  Trade-respectfully requests the Postmaster-General to establish a mail  route on the; Great Northern branch  line from Grand Forks to Phoenix  without delay. ���'  The meeting then decided to :-.end  J. E. \V. Thompson as a delegate to  the meeting of the Associated Boards  of Trade, held at Nelson oh the 22nd  inst., as Mr. Thompson would be in  Nelson about that time, on his way  cast.  It was also moved and carried that  Messrs. Delahay, Horrell, Crawford  and Boyle be a special committee to  secure members for the Board of  Trade, to report at a general meeting  for reorganization to be held on Wednesday evening, March 8th, <.o which  every business, professional and miri  ing man is invited.  VERNON HILL  WAS KILLED  Run Over By Knob Hill Ore  Train.  Boundary Mining Notes  Occured Thursday Night at  No. 2 Tunnel.  Thursday evening about nine o'clock  t!te first fatality that has occurred on  the mine ore trains at the Granby  mines happened and Vetnon Hill,  a. young man of perhaps 19 years, was  almost instantly ushered into the next  wor'd.  George Smith was engineer of tlie  I rain, which consisted of six ten ton  steel ore cars, with Hill and Jim Donaldson" as brakemen. The tram had  been emptied at the ore bins, and was  just entering the No. 2 tunnel on the  return trip, when Hil', who should not  have been standing on the" cars, was  knocked off by the timbers overhead,  and thrown between the heavy cars.  Two ofthe cars passed over -him, but  the next cars struck him and mangled  his body terribly. His neck was broken, head battered and legs broken in  several places, aivl death must have  been almost instantaneous.  Hill had been working on the mine  ore trains for some six mondis, and  was well thought of by his associates  in the 'work. His father and mother  and two sisters live here, and are pros-  tiated at the sad accident. Only a lew  months ago he lost a sister through  appendicitis.  Dr. Foster, of Greenwood, the district coroner, visited the scene o'  the acident and yesteiday afteinopn  Constable Darraugh empanelled the foi.  lowing coroner's jury to hold an inquest:  T. H. Richards, John Pipe, J. C. McRae, Aichie Grant, Alex Greigand W.  Rogers.  As the Pioneer was going to press  the .testimony was being taken, including Leslie Walter, the only eye  witness, James Donaldson, Geo. Smith  and Dr. Boucher.  Smelter Bill Dies,  new role, that of a safe ci acker And  he did not fail to get at the contents,  either.  The ;afe was of the Taylor make,  and was in :he Brjoklyn hotel at tlr:  time ofthe fire last week, which wiped  out that hote", as well as the Phoenix,  and damaged the Mint hotel. In the  safe were a number of valuab'e papers,,  about $1,400 in bills and u Lag containing $20 in nickels. A little giant  powder applied in the right place  quickly blew ihe door of th'. safe open  and the contents found to be in good  condition, with lhe exception ol the  nickels. The bag was uninjured, but,  strange to say, the coins themselves  were considerably the- worse foi the  warm time they h-ad had.  Will Publish 50,000 Copies.  Arthur Wheeler, representing the  Victoria Times, was in the city this  week to interview the city council regarding taking a page"' in an anniver  sary number of the- Times, on its 2.1 si  birthday, at $75. The Times will  print 50,000 copies of the issue, fully  illustrated, and will d;stnbute 10,000  copies at the Winnipeg fair, 10,000  copies at the New Westminster fair  and 10,000 copies at the Portland fair,  The issue will lie out July ist, and is  being very generously supported all  over the province, having the appearance of being a legitimate and excellent means of advertising this province.  Mr. Wheeler has spent three weeks in  the Boundary, and will return a little  later. Me went to Rowland Thursday.  Latest Prices in Metals.

Wheels are once more in use between I'hoenix and Greenwood.  William Matheson this week purchased the interest of his partner, Ed.  Brown, in the livery business.  "The Fifth Gospel," and "Why?"  will be the topics in the Presbyterian  Church tomorrow. An Anthem by  the choir.     ��� ���  Frederick Keffer, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co., has been  attending a meeting of the executive of  the Provincial Mining Association this  week at Victoria The annual gathering of the organization will be held  next July at Vancouver.  W. A. Aldridge, manager of the  Canadian Pacific's mining department,  who is to be manager of the Le Roi-  Centre Star combination if it goes  through, is credited with being the  highest salaried man in British Columbia, with a retainer of from $20,000 to  $30,000 a year from the Canadian  Pacific railroad,  R. B. Kerr, who has Leeri a resident  of Phoenix for the last six years nearly,  left yesterday with Mrs. Kerr for the  coast whence he will lake steamer, for  California, and expects to spend the  spring in Oakland, near San Francisco. Some time in the spring or  summer Mr, Kerr expects to return to  British Columbia.  C. B. Stahlschmidt, representing the  fire insurance agency of Robert Ward  & Co., of Vancouver; |. Hogan, inspector lor tbe Royal; B. E. Patterson  of Montreal representing the Union,  and E. T. Wiekwire, of Greenwood,  representing the Canadian, Atlas and  Guardian, have been in tlie city this  week adjusting the losses by last week  lire on Dominion Avenue.  The new boarding house at the Sky  lark being finished, the force will.be  increased about the ist of the month.  The new ore crusher of the Mother  I/dde, with a daily capacity of 800 or  900 tons, was put into commission  Tuesday,  It is reported that development on  the Nellie Cotton group, adjoining the  Granby mines, will bestaitedaboul the  ist of Apt il.  Duncan Mcintosh and associates  recently made a $5,000 payment on  the bond on lhe E. P. U. mine to W.  T. Hunter.  Sally ore fiom the West Fork, recently shipped to the Trail smelter, returned oi er $120 per ton, including  2oo ounces in silver.  This week the announcement was  made, much to the satisfactionpf many  that the coal miners' strike at Coleman  bad been settled.  .The Highland Queen, ntar the  Greenwood smelter, was bonded this  week for $10,000, by F. W. McLaine  for Greenwood parties.  Contractor Martin McHale hopes to  get started on his 300-foot tunnel con-  tiact on the Gold Bug next week. He  will use a steam di ill for power..  Owing to the scarcity of power, the  Granby Co. is now using the Knob  Hill compressor as an auxilhary. It  is of ten drill capacity and, of course,  operated by steam.  ' Thos. Newby and Lee Mercer have  driven an So-foot tunnel on the Gloucester claim in Gloucester camp since  last fall, and expect to drive another  So feet by May. The Gloucester has  <m immense body of copper-gold oie.  H. H. Shallenberger, of Spokane,  largely interested in the Boundary, expects to start work this spring "on the  Moreen claim, in Deadwood camp,  and on the Lake group- in Skylark  camp.    Both are promising properties.  Last Sunday for twelve hours not a  wheel was turning at the Granby  mines and smelter, the power being  GlT to enable the Cascade power people  to clean out their flume and repair the  headgates. The smelter furnacts were  banked for the time being.  Tt\o furnaces at the Granby smelter  are now operated with the new electric self-charging apparatu-. On account of lack of power for several days  the converter plant at this smelter has  be.jn operated only at night, and large  quantities of matte are stacked up  awaiting converting.  A Greenwood syndicate, consisting  of Messrs. Ehrlich, Graham, Hall and  Munroe, have acquired a group of  claims consisting of the Anaconda,  Little Jim, a id Sudbury, just north of  town, and is preparing to do extensive  development work thereon. Some excellent copper ore has been taken'from  the property.  It has been decided to incorporate  the Elkhom mine, one ofthe best high  grade properties near Greenwood, with  a capital of $200,000, in one dollar  shares. Tbe owners are Phil McDonald and James Sutherland, and the  new company will install.an air compressor and other machinery.  BATTLE ROYAL  OF RAILWAYS  Great Northern and C. P. R.  Getting Ready.  For  Double Invasion  of the  ��� Similkameen.  If indications count for anything at  all, within a few weeks trure will he  seen tht. commencement of the long  talked of railway race into the Similkameen district, (In two entries for the  race this time being the C. P. R. and^  the Gr-.a Northern.    ,  This week the Pioneer learned on  what seemed to be more or iesj reliable authority, that the C.P.R management is now making active preparations for the beginning of construction from Spence's Bridge, on the  main line, through the Similkameen  country to a connection with its present Boundary terminus at Midway,and  that construction might also be started  from Midway.  At the same time the remark was  made that within two weeks-���it has  got down lo two weeks now, if the information can be credited���the Great  Northern contractors would be throwing dirt once more, this time west from  Midway, and would build as soon as  possible to Hedley, on Twenty Mile  creek, where the Nickel Plate mine  and mill are located.  Just what effect on the proceedings  referred to the presence of Chief Engineer Kennedy, of the V., V. & E.,  at headquarters at St. Paul at present  has, cannot be told. Nor can any one  say what the'rdilway policy of the government, now in session at Victoria,  will have to do with it. But it,, leally  seems that the Similkameen will get a  railway at last, and perhaps two of  them, after many weary years of  waiting.  Was A Pretty Big Blist.  Thursday afternoon a pretty good  sized blast was set off at the Rawhide  mine, by which it is estimated that  from 2,000 to, 4,000 tons of ore were  loosened up in the glory hole of that  property, supplying work for the muckers for some weeks to come. A large  number of kegs of black powder were  used, the blasting being in charge of  M.---J. Bums, wha has been on railway  work for the last 15 years. Supt. Collins thinks this is the cheapest kind of  mining yet devised in the Boundary.  Spokane Excursion on March 16.  11. A. Jackson, passenger agent of  the Great Northern at Spokane, wrote  this week to say that Thursday, March  16th, would be a suitable date for the  special excursion from Phoenix to Spokane, and a reply has been sent that  that date is satisfactory. A'round trip  fare of $5 has been granted by the  railway, with the privilege of stopping  over two days in Spokane.  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

'  membership-" was, composed Of busi-  Vness, mining and professional men, and  . "there-was scarcely a dissentient voice  but that the organization had done no  small amount of good for Phoenix.   It  called the attention of the powers that  be to the needs of the city and district,' and kept hammering   at them:  ,. persistently till the ends sought were  accoir>p'ish<.d.   It was a lhe, down to  date orginizatioi, and was productive  J of good to Phoenix. - This is a generally acknowledged fact.  In the last year or two, however, for  some inexplicable reason, th; interest  in the board seems lo have been lost  to a large extent, and up to last week  no meetings had been held for months.  An attempt is now to be made to  reorganize the Board o' Trade, and it  is certainly to the interest of every .one  who has the welfare of the city at  heart to become a member and attend  the meetings. It can -carcoly be said  that Phoenix has everything that is desired of a public character, and- if this  is so, there is ample work for a live  board to take up. For instance, there  is the estab ishment of customs facilities here���something that the old  board worked on for months and years.  We believe that this can be accomplished with tlie proper eff. rt and by e\er-  lasf.ngly keepin f at it. And other  things will continually come up that  need concerted action.  A meeting for reorganization purposes has been called for Wednesday)  March 8th, when it is hoped there will  be a large attendance of those who  have any interest whatever hi Phoenix.  Let us all make a long pull, a strong  pull and a pull altogether for the chief  mining town of the Boundary.  The lumber interests of British Columbia are united in demanding protection to their industry fiom the  inroads of the American mills. The  farmers of the northwest are equally  united in demanding that no such protection be granted, as it will materially  increase the cost of lumber to them.  Thus the Laurier government is be  tween the devil and the deep blue sea,  and will probably take no action in the  matter,  A short time since the Pioneer  noticed an ad. of a Republic undertaker, who was purporting to give the  greatest kind of bargains in the wares  he had to dispose of. This must have  been noticed in Spokane, for now we  have a Spokane undertaker going him  one better. He advertises a "grand  opening" st his establishment. One  can see just how the thing is done  there, pick out -his own- casket even  though it is not a bargain, arfd in general get ready for the" last ride. It  would seem that this is certainly the  limit, buUhere is time yet for further  progress', in ,"the advertising ' of the  undertaking'business...

Generally it is in  connection with the last "greatest  thing on earth" which he has managed to get hold of, and occasionally a  joke of his would go the rounds; but  this time there is no Sunny Tim business ' nor no O'Shaughnessy jokes.  When last heard from he was beleaguered in Mexico by a howling band  of savage Yaqui Indians who had already made away with several Americans, and the Mexican authorities were  unable to maintain order. Jim is dead  serious this time.  Probable That it Will Not be  Passed.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite's bill, intended to regulate the hours of labor in  certain industries in the province, is as  follows :  " i���This act may be cited as the  'Labor Regulation Act, 1905.'  No person shall be employed in  or about any smelter, sorting, handling, removing or smelting ores or  matte in any stage of preparation for a  longer period than eight hours in any  24.  "3���Any owner, agent or manager,  or anyone acting- on their behalf, employing any workman or person in  contravention to this act, shall be liable  to a penalty not exceeding $100 nor  less than $20 for each workman or  person so working for a longer period  than specified in section 2 of this act  shall be liable to a penalty not exceeding $100 nor less than $20.  "4���Twenty-four hours, for the purpose of this act, shall mean from midnight to midnight.  "5���'Phis act shall come into force  on the first day of March, 1906."  Much opposition appeared on the  first reading of the above bill at Vic  toria, the smelting interests unanimously opposing it. It is claimed that  it would increase the cost of smelting  at least twenty per cent., and as lew,  if any, of the smelters had yet declared ^dividend, it would mean a loss  to the reduction works. .Supt. Hodges  of the Granby smelter, was reported as  sending word that if the bill passed  the Granby smelter���the largest in the  province���would be closed and remain so till the bill was repealed.  As a result of the opposition to the  bill, it was practically decided to give  it a six months' hoist,  Air Compressors  THE CANADIAN RAND DRILL CO.  Head Office aud Works.  SHERBROOKE, QUE.

Distensions und pains from  indi  gestion are cured quickly by Nerviline.  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 aistress but half a teaspoonful of  Nerviline fixed me up 111 a few minutes. I can recommend Nerviline for  sick headache and cramps and consider it'an invaluable household remedy."  Try it yourself.    Price 25c.  ESTABLISHED   1S59:  ->-o  B. C.

JAS. MACKINNON, General Manager,  PROVINCIAL.  Premier McBride has decided to  enforce the Game Act in this province,  which will meet with very "general approval.

Where there used to be a feeling of  uneasiness and worry in the household  when a child showed symptoms of  croup, there is now perfect confidence.  There is owing to the uniforn success  of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in  the treatment of that disease. Mrs. M.  I. Basford, of Poolesville, Md., in  speaking of her experiences in the use  of that remedy says: "I have a world  of confidence in Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy for I have used it with perfect  success.

Aldridge," manager of the  Canadian Pacific's mining department  is to be the manager of tlie proposed  British Columbian mining consolidation that will include the Le Roi,  tlie War Kagle and the Centre Star  mines at Rossiand, the Snowshoe  mine near Phoeniv, the Trail smelter,  the I.eRoi smelter at Northport, Wash.,  coal properties in the Crow's Nest pass  fields and smaller mining properties in  ilie Kootenays. The new consolidation, if carried through, will be oue of  the most important mining corporations in America.  At the annual meeting of the Le  Roi company in London, January 31,  the subject of consolidation was discussed at great length, and the discussion by stockholders was strongly  favorable. A resolution was passed  by authority of which the board of  directors will proceed with plans for  consolidating.  The shareholders will be called  upon later to discuss complete proposals. The consolidation project is  sti'l enibryotic and will depend largely  upon the reports of the experts who  are examining the various mines to be  united.  It was officially announced at the  London meeting that the Canadian  Pacific railway, which owns the Trail  smelter, was willing to support a strong  combination with' Mr.Aldridge as general manager.  Mr. Aldridge was interviewed regarding the combine.    Said he:  "Should the consolidation be per  fected, it is not proposed to close the  Northport smelter. There should be  enough ore to keep both the North-  port . and the Trail smelters Lusy.  There should be substantial economy,  however, in working the various properties under one control. I really do  not know much about the project as  yet."   "Old Man,"  of  the Herald,  Seems to Know.  The annual review issued by W, B.  Willcox, editor of the Phoenix Pioneer, is on our desk. Perhaps in the  history of British Columbia there has  nvt been a superior piece of work  gotten out by a newspaper of the  province. But that is Willcox's way,  when he does a thing he does it well,  This issue consists of 32 pages and  a cover, and rthe contents tell more  about lhe Boundary country than was  dreamed of in the minds of those who  made that section famous. On each  page ran be seen evidences of Mr.  Willcox's energy, patience and skill,  the clviracteristics that have made it  possible for him to build up a paper  like the Pioneer in a small mountain  town. This annual will be read by  hundreds who will like it and yet have  no idea of what it cost the editor in  time, money and unceasing toil. If  the editor comes out even he will say,  "I am satisfied if it will do good for  the district."
