C, and will  do our best to please our customers in every particular.  iIorriti��fl��E5g^^  Last year there was a general; shortage of labor all through the west, and  the railways had difficulty, in getting  orders for ties filled. The older lines  needed renewing in this repect, to say  nothing of the great demand by the  new construction in western Canada.  The result was that the price offered  for the humble tie was gradually raised.  When'the closedown came at the  Boundary mines and smelters last  November, the price looked good to a  number in thts:district and they began  making arrangements to secure con  tracts for getting out thousands of  them, If fact, it is now acknowledged  that but for the tie making industry,  especially around Greenwood, the  winter would have been much duller  than it was, and some people might  have gone short on rations, as getting  work elsewhere was not an easy problem to solve, with thousands being laid  off in every line of industry, following  th'3 panic.':  The Pioneer has been looking; into  the matter, and finds that, in all probability,.during this winter there have  been made no less than 400,000 ties  in the/Boundary district���sufficient to  do for over 150 rnilles of railway.  Whenever timber areas could be arranged for, and that was not easy,  either, a bunch of men could be found,  cutting, swamping or delivering ties.  Some of-the' expert axemen made good  wages at the labor, around $5 ahd"$6  per day, though they probably did not  limit their work day to the ordinary  eight-hour shift. Average wages, however, could be made by any man who  was willing to work, and probably, 400  were, so employed during the winter.,.  'As to prices, ten cents per tie in the]  string in the timber was what has been  paid as a rule. Then the contractor  himself had to saw them, do the  swamping and_hauling;Lto; the .railway  -Hgtir or way or wherever the contract  called for, and he received around 30  cents each. If he had a large contract,  understood his business, had good  credit, and was a good manager, he  stood good chances of making a good  profit, though the returns did not  come in for three or four months or  more.  After cutting and piling on right of  way, Inspector Graham, of Revelstoke,)  for the C. P. R., would look the ties  over, and after culling, if need be,  would issue a certificate, entitling the  contractor to about 15 cents per tie on  account, which certificate would be  cashed by Treasurer Salisbury at Vancouver when he got good and ready���  in the course of three or four months.  Thus, the contracts also required financing.  Most of the ties accepted were  gotten out between Farren and Anaconda. They had to be of either fir  or tamarack, eight feet long and with a  seven-inch face. The work of getting  them to the railways gave employment  to quite a number of teams. The  C. P. R. took most of the ties, but the  Yale-Columbia Lumber Co. had a contract for a considerable number, to be  sawed at their big mill at Cascade for  the Grand Trunk Pacific.  Thus it can be seen that, when the  bills are all settled, at 30 cents each,  about $120,009 is the sum to be distributed in the Boundary for the winter's work in the tie camps���a sum that  would not ordinarily find its way into  the Boundary, but which was particularly welcome this winter. Recently,  the C. P. R. has stopped giving out  contracts, and those in hand are now  being finished up as fast as possible,  before the snow goes off. Perhaps  the railway thinks it can make contracts for a less figure in the future.  The outfit having the largest contract in this section is that of Alex  Robinson and E. G. Warren, of  Greenwood, who have two or three on  the North Fork of Kettle river, where  they are getting out about 70,000 ties,  and have a further contract for supplying 70,000 ties per year for the  next four years, and will put in a  small sawmill on the North Fork, to  do this. This year they will float the  ties down the river to Smelter lake,  where they will be loaded on the cars.  Among .the many who have taken  large or small contracts for tie making  ibis winter in tbe Boundary are the  following:  W. H.  C.

Copper Co.'s Emma mine are  fast filling up���with snow.  By next week���March 2nd���Supt.  Charles Biesel will be about the only  employee at the Snowshoe mine.  Last week the Sally mine, up on  the West Fork, shipped its third car  of ore for this year, to (he Trail smelter. ' ".'���'  ��� Nothing is doing as yet at the Elkhorn mine, but a number in Greenwood are now taking an active financial interest in it.  ;' It is understood that the additional  machinery that will be put into the  Granby smelter this year will cost the  company upwards of $50,000.  ; The shaft on the Tip Top, where  the electric-; hoist was started a few  weeks ago, is now down about 10b  feet, and the ore is reported to be improving. !  The Canadian Mining Institute proposes to establish a library in Greenwood; for the use of. prospectors,  assayers and mining engineers, if the  board of trade will provide a place for it.  With the reopening of the Snow,  storm mine, in the Coeur d'Alenes  Idaho, ore for converter linings can  again be shipped to the Granby smelter, and also to the B. C. Copper  smelter whenever that plant shall  start again. '."."'  It is understood that; the Providence  Mining Co. has placed the $50,000  in bonds, the issue of which was auth-'  orized at the company's annual meet;  ing, for the purpose of sinking the  shaft to the r,ooc-loot level. No particulars have yet been received, nor as  to "when work will bt resumed.  It may not be generally known, but  within the last week or two the ore  shipments from the mines of the Boundary has reached a grand total of more  than 6,000,000..-tons-_this_since shipments first began from this 'district, ;r��  1900, For the last two years they  have run over a million tons per annum.  By next week the Granby's new ore  ore crusher and terminal facilities at  the Curlew outlet,, should be ready  for operation. The trolley engine  which formerly did duty at the smelter, will feed the crusher, hauling heavy  wooden cars, three dozen of which  were manufactured at the company's  thine shops.  ; Much favorable ��� comment is heard  in Greenwood of the project for running the long, deep tunnel towards  Phoenix. It is understood that arrangements have already been made  with many of the mine owners of the  ground which will be passed through  in the first 4,000 or 5,000 feet, and  their hearty co-operation enlisted.  A change in the arrangement of the  hours of men employed at the Granby  smelter, goes into effect tomorrow, as  follows: 8 a, m. to 4 p. m.; 4 p. m.  to midnight; midnight to S a. m.; formerly it was 7 a. m. to 3 p. m.; 3 p.  to 11 p. m.; 11 p. 111. to 7 a. m.. The  change is to conform with the law,  which takes effect tomorrow, but does  not alter the duration of working time.  Some machinery is being hauled  from from Grand Forks to the Little  Bertha mine, 14 miles up the North  Fork. The balance, including the 16-  stamp mill, will be taken in over the  new lailway, which will be running  again in ine spring, probably. It is  understood that the shaft will be sunK  to the 200-foot level, a shipment sent  to the smelter giving returns of $55  per ton. Assay values are given out  as running from $30 to $200 per ton.  CRESCENT ON  SHIPPING LIST  Sent Out Car Ore This  Week.  Regular   Shipments   To  Made in the Future.  Be  This week Wednesday the Crescent  Mines, Ltd., sent out a carload of high  grade ore from its Crescent mine, in  Skylark camp. The car Contained  about 20 tons of ore, and was hauled  the two or three miles to the C. P.  R. station at Greenwood by C. J. McArthur, being sent to the Consolidated  smelter at Trail for treatment.' This  is the first car sent out under the present management, and it is understood  to be the intention to ship one or more  cars loads each month hereafter.' The  last shipment from the Crescent was  nia'de in' 1905, when the mine was.under the "management of Harry H.  Shallenberger, who sold the property  to the present owning company, mostly  Chicago capitalists. ���  Superintendent Feeney now has |  about a dozen men employed at the  Crescent, which force will be increased  whenever the development of the mine  demands it. The ore is being stoped  from the drifts on the 225-foot level of  the property, and it is a well known  fact that the values from the Crescent  improve as depth is obtained. The  ore is, of course, carefully sorted, as it  does not pay to haul anything else on  wagons or sleighs, and it is likely that  the smelter returns will show that the  shipment will run around $100 per  in gold and silver. The new and complete electric machinery plant at the  Crescent is working most satisfactorily,  and the future of the mine appears to  be very favorable.  Boundary Side Lights  List Sunday Bishop  crated St. Jude's Church  at Greenwood. '  Dart conse-  of  England  First Building of the Year.  Preparations were made this week  for starting work on the first new building for Phoenix this year. It will be  erected by Domenico Mussatto on the  property adjoining the store of McRae  Bros. Ltd., on Knob Hill avenue.  The structure will be 30x40 feet in  size and one story in height,' and will  be divided into two store rooms, one  of which will be occupied by Mr.  Mussatto as a shoe manufacturing emporium, the other being for rent. H.  A. Munro has the contract for the  building, and already has the first loads  of lumber on the ground. Mr. Mus-  tatto bought the property last summer  for the purpose for which it is now being used.        Greenwood and Grand Forks had a  hockey game at tho latter place  Wednesday evening, and although the  ice was covered with water, a good  game resulted, the score being 3 to 2  in favor of Grand Forks. At the end  of the second half the score was 2 all,  and Grand Forks yt tho odd goal in  playing it off.  HE DID THE JOB  UP COMPLETELY  But Next Man Will Do Time  For It.  Richard Coulter was employed at  the'Granby machine shops up to last  Wednesday, when he drew his time  and bought tickets for Regina for him-  seir ana ramfly; Bcfuic lie -left, however, he was careful to get all that he  could from several merchants oil credit,  and overlooked settling with them.  During'the shut-down  Coulter was  given credit by  Morrin, Thompson &  Co.,   and   his account ran  up  pretty  well.    Last   payday he  paid   $40  on  account, and   promised   to  settle the  balance next payday.    On Wednesday  he quit ai the Granby and   packed up  all   his  goods   and  chattels,   sending  them to the station the next   morning.  He even used shelves in the house he  was renting from Mrs. Tom Moore, to  cover his cases with���and also   forgot  to settle the  rent  account.    Wednesday his wife went to Hunter-Kendrick  Co.'s and bought a bill of goods, also  to P. W. George & Co., Wm.   Hunter  Co., etc.,  all of  which was carefully  packed in said cases and shipped away.  P. Burns & Co. are also mourners for  a small amount.  J. E. W. Thompson got wind of  what was going on and met Coulter at  the C. P. R. station, who denied what  he was doing and tried to brazen it  out. Finally he acknowledged the  exact situation, said he had little or no  money alter having bought his tickets,  but gave security to Mr. Thompson.  Only on account of the man's family  was the firm lenient, as absconding  debtors can get into no little trouble.  Tbe next man who attempts anything  ol this kind, married or single, stands  a chance, so the merchants think, of  doing time on the rock pile at Nelson,  or something of that kind. The other  merchants did not know of Coulter's  leaving till he had gone.  Slir Created by Natal  Act.  The much talked of Natal act, recently passed by the provincial legislative assembly, requiring an educational test for immigrants, is already  practically a dead letter, thanks to the  authorities at Ottawa.  It was aimed directly at the Japanese, in an effort to check the little  brown boys from over-flowing this province, and the Japanese consul at  Portland promptly picked out two  boys to test it. They were arrested  and tried and fined, when the Dominion authorities stepped in and had  them out on habeas corpus. The  case came up in the supreme court and  that tribunal practically decided the  act to be ultra vires. By mutual arrangement it was quickly appealed to  the full court, which this week sus  tained the decision of the supreme  court. The provincial government  will now, in all likelihood, appeal to  the privy council in England, in due  course. Meantime, the little Japs will  probably enter British Columbia once  more in droves, notwithstanding the  verbal understanding of Hon. Lemieux,  the minister of labor, with the Mikado's  government. '  Greenwood defeited Grand Forks at  hockey on the Greenwood rink last  week Friday, by a score of 7 to 2.  Robert Keffer, publisher of the Anaconda News, has left for Pullman,  Wash., to take up a mining engineering course.  Thomas Griffin Bird, of Grand  Forks, and Elsie Knowler, were married in St. Paul's church, Vancouver,  last Wednesday.  Collector McCutcheon, of the Greenwood custom house, must anticipate a  boom,; as he has recently installed a  two ton safe in his palatial premises.  Mayor XV. S. Torney, of Eholt, is  authority for the statement that the  10,060 club of that place gave a dance  last evening, for the benefit of the club.  This week, the Greenwood Steam  Laundry discontinues business, for a  few months, at least. Some of its  supplies have been taken over by the  Phoenix Steam Laundry Co.  This week three drummers from the  east, who usually travel together, were  noted in a Greenwood establishment,  their combined avoirdupois being in  excess of 850 pounds. They took up  a lot of room.  - In the estimates brought down in  the provincial house last week, Grand  Forks riding receives a paltry $7,300  appropriation and Greenwood $7,000  for the coming fiscal year, for roads,  streets and bridges.  George R. Naden, M. L. A., from  Greenwood, was presented with a handsome bouquet the other day at Vic-  toi ia, labelled "From the I adies of  Victoria," in recognition of his efforts  to promote female suffrage.  That eminent philosopher and poet  printer, J. Peck McSwain, who is known  in every newspaper office from Calgary  to the. coast, after spending some  months in Greenwood, left last week  for Oroville, Keremeos, Hedley and  Princeton.  Mary Estade, aged 26 years, who  .resided^actQssjh^_de^dJuie, committed  suicide in Greenwootf' last week by  carbolic acid. She was Cuban and  despondent, and lived but an hour  after taking the poison The coroner's  jury found a verdict in accordance  with the above.  A. E. McAuIay.'tfie veteran customs  officer at Carson, died a few days ago.  He had many friends in this section, |  being an old timer in the Boundary,  where he had.been a customs official  for six or eight years. The funeral  was held from Danville, Wash., just  across the line, this week.  One of the largest funerals ever held  in Nelson was that of Neil McDonald  last Sunday. McDonald was well  known to all C. P. R. travellers into  the Boundary, having been brakeman  on the passenger train for years. One  day last week he slipped near Cascade,  fell between the cars and was instantly  killed.  No trains have been operating this  winter over the North Fork extension  of the Keltle Valley railway, owing to  the fact that no permission to run  same has yet been obtained from the  railway commission. This, in turn, is  occasioned by the company having  built over some pieces of ground to  which it has no title, according to report. This matter is now being settled  in the courts.  SIX MONTHS  CONSOLIDATED  Production,    248,664  Tons of Ore*  Snowshoe  Tons  Shipment,   86,109  in Half Year.  The management of the- Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd., has issued a circular to tho  shareholders detailing what has been  accomplished at the company's properties for the last six months of 1907.  The directors decided to defer action  on the usual February dividend of the  company, owing to the general financial  conditions prevailing.  During the six months from July 1st  to December 31st, 1907, the following  tonnages were mined from the properties of the company:  Centre Star group, Rossland  St. Eugene group, Moyie.....  Snowshoe mine, Phoenix   Tons.  87.45'  75>l��4  86,109  to  248,664  about   1,380  which is equivalent  tons per day, ,  The St. Eugene produced 12,110  tons of silver-lead concentrates, some  of which was shipped to Europe and  the Marysville smelter at Kimberley,  B.C., but the greater part was smelted  and refined at the company's works at  Trail.  The Snowshoe only operated 4^  monts out of the six months, but it is  intended to start this property again as  soon as copper advances in price.  There are large ore reserves ready for  shipment.  The average amount of ore and bullion  products smelted at Trail was r,n6  tons per day, the amount of lead-silver  bullion produced daily was 42 tons  averaging $165 per. ton, copper, matte  14S 10 tons daily averaging $453 per  ton. The amount of pig lead pro-  ducecLbvj:thejrraUxei��iervjas384-jo  tons daily averaging about $79 per ton."  Upon the above basis of production  the gross value of the output for the  year will approximate $6,000,000, divided about as follows: Gold, 39 1-10  per cent; silver, 27 2-10 per cent; copper, 12 4-10 per cent; lead, 21 3-10  per cent.  I The ore reserves in the properties  'are quite as great as they were on June  30, 1907, and there is nothing lo indicate any interruption in the company's various operations.  The Richmond-Eureka at Sandon,  is now ready to begin shipments, an  aerial tramway between the mine and  the railway having been completed.  Developments upon this property are  quite encouraging.  Some of the lower levels in Rossland  have recently produced a grade of ore  much higher in gold than the average  of the present shipments from the  properties. Developments upon the  2,000 foot level of the St. Eugene have  shown a larger tonnage of lead-silver  than was anticipated.  This week's shipment of 22,919 tons  of ore from the Granby mines makes a  new high record for seven days.  Dr. John A. Briggs, a physician  formerly located here, set sail recently  for Australia on a sight seeing trip.  February 39,  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

It was the  weekly papers that felt the new arrangement the most, and could least afford  it. But evidently the big dailies in  eastern Canada had the ear' of Hon.

An Amalgamated interest says: "It  is folly to attempt to swallow many of  these predictions as to low copper  costs. When estimates as to future  earnings at various prices of copper are  set forth, it In quently happens that  little or no account is taken of the very  important item of plant depreciation.  '' There are those who make charges  for all construction' work against so  railed surplus earnings; others have a  convenient capital account handy; but  so far as the stockholder himself is  concerned, such charges properly belong among the items making up the  cost of producing copper.  "Machineiy is constantly wearing  out or becoming antiquated and must  besubstiiutfd by new and up to-date  construction. When proper and reasonable consideration is given to the depreciation, account, together with the  increasing cost of making copper incident to deeper workings, higher labor  r-xpenses and more expensive materials  and supplies, I believe it will-be found  that notwi hstandin�� ihe low cost of  such nv'nes as the Calumet & llecla,  Copper Queen, Calumet & Arizona,.

"Don't trifle with a cold," is good  advice for prudent men and women.  It may be vital in the c;ise of a child.  Proper food, good ventilation, and dty,  warm clothing are the proper safeguards  against colds. If they are maintained  through the changeable weather of  autumn, winter and spring, the chances  of a surprise from ordinary colds will  be slight. But the ordinaly light cold  will become severe if neglected, and a  well established ripe cold is- to the  germs of diphtheria what honey is to  the bee. The greatest meiipce to child  life at this season of tbe year is the  neglected cold."

Tuesday evening the Phoenix intermediate hockey club met the Greenwood seniors in �� match uii~Uie"local  link, fn what was probably the last important game of the season, and came  out ahead by a score of 6 to o. The  Phoenix club has thus established its  undisputed title to being the champions in its class, not only in the Boundary but in British Columbia A large  audience assembled to witness the  game Tuesday evening, Tuck Collins  being the referee.  Before time was called the Greenwood players left the ice, disputing the  decisions of the referee. To settle all  disputes the Phoenix club has issued  the following challenge to Greenwood,  which will result in a hard ���., game if  accepted, a doubtful contingency now,  as the ice is pretty soft in Grand Forks, |  if indeed there is any left:  "We, the Phoenix intermediate hockey team, champions of B.

Buying from the mail order   houses  is  a   habit,   yes,   a   mania witn some  people.    People in the west very often  buy goods from the mail  order houses  that may be bought from the merchants  in   the   town   for   approximately    the  same   price.    Ihe" tiling   thut   ;<.- ior.  away possesses a facination for most of  us.    There are some people for whom  an article   that  comes from   '1'oronto,  Montreal or Winnipeg has an enhanced  value.    The goods in the  home store  have   all   been seen  and   are an old  story.    There  is a  fascination in  the  element of chance in purchasing things  unseen.    Why  people should  persist  in  buying  goods   in   this    way    with  opportunities   abounding    for   seeing  goods before purchasing, it   is hard to  tell.    A  writer in   the Duluth   Trade  News says:  The basis of mail order business is  advertising. Advertising, in brief, is  nothing hut telling people what you  have to offer for sale, and in this connection u e would suggest to retailers  two thoughts. First, you make good  use of 1 Ik: publication in your town by  taking space in the same to tell the  people- in the territory tributary to  your toun of the goods and prices  which \.iu have to offer. Secondly,  encoura c the publisher of that newspaper to .Iwell upon the fact that mail  order buying is but a habit and that  recognized authorities on the mail  order business- do not claim that  greater values must be given or are  given by mail order houses than local  dealers can or do give, but that mail  order business is largely built up on  the above named fascination for dinner,"  and encourage them to cultivate the  habit of buying at home.  Born to the wife of Henry  on   Spion    Kop,    February  daughter.  Horton,  27th,   a  Frank Spearing, who was in Ihe eiiv-  ploy of the Hunter-Kendrick Co., and  previous to that with P. W.

He was  taken to the hospital, where it was  found that his skull was fractured at  the base and top and his nose and face  were almost torn off. The man was in  such a shape that his recovery seemed  doubtful, but he has been gradually  improving this week, and Dr. Dickson  hopes for his recovery if complications  do not set in.
