Next   week   municipal   elections  will  be  held  in   many of the cities  throughout the province.     In Phoenix next Monday is nomination day,  - and   Thursday,   January     15th   is  election day.  ��� However, in   all probability   the   present    mayor    and  board of Alderman will be re-elected  by acclamation.  It will be necessary  to select one  new  alderman   to   fill  James Marshall's place.    The people  ., of Phoenix are  apparently well satisfied   with   the   way  in   which,the  business of the city has been handled  by    Mayor   D.   J.   Matheson    and  Aldermen Geo.   Rogers, -A. D. Mc-  Kenzie,   W.   J.   Pendergast, M. H.  Kane and Theo. Biner.  At Greenwoed Mayor F. W. Mac-  Laine will stand for re-election, but  may have opposition in Dr. J. D.  McLean, who has been asked by  friends to enter the contest.  At Grand Forks Mayor G. M.  Fripp is in the field for re-election  and may not have any opposition.  At Rossland Tom Embleton and  J. D. Wilson are running. Mayor  Deschamps refused to take the office  for another term.  At Nelson J. J. Malone seems to  be the choice of the citizens, and  will probably be the only candidate.

Simon Taylor . is the citizens'  choice at Cranbrook, and from present indications^ will be elected by  acclamation to succeed A. C. Bow-  ness, the present incumbent.'  There was a ' very large turnout  last Sunday to attend the double  funeral of John R. Nelson and An-  gelo Catterihi, the two victims of  the unfortunate mine accident on  New Year's eve. Every available  sleigh and cutter in Phoenix and  several - from Greenwood were  pressed into service, and scores of  people walked to and from the  graveyard below town.  The funeral service   was   held   at  the   Miners'   Union   Opera   house,  and was conducted by the Rev.   A.  T.   Bell,   pastor  of the   Methodist  church.     The   two   caskets    were  placed upon the . stage, and   at  the  conclusion   of the   church   service,  the Odd Fellows' ritualistic  funeral  service was read   by   E. E. Barnes,  noble grand,    and   John   C. Tait,  past grand of Snowshoe Lodge No.  46, of which   Nelson   was a  member.    Catterini   was  a  member of  Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8,   and  the   Union   service    was   read   by  Louis   Goebel,   while   beside    him  were    Harry   Elsmore  and   D.    A.  Vignaux,    president  and   secretary  of the union respectively.  Both caskets were "covered with  wreaths, from the Masons, the Odd  Fellows and the Miners' Union.  At the graveyard the remains of  .Nelson were Jaid in the I. O. O. F.  plot' beside his brother Paul, who  was" killed at the Granby about  nine months ago, and those of Catterini in the-Miners' Union plot. The  Odd Fellows marched in a body  and wore regalia, and the pall  .bearers for,-Nelson   were   members  tit,both,the Odd-Fellows    and ^Ma  x'ooic.'ofdwrtJ.'deceascdV ,haviog   bee  'a'memb'er'of'both   lodge's.'   'Catte  rini was buried under   the   auspice  of the Union, and  the   pall   bearers  were members.  I  "^  Rebdkah Joint Installation'  Mechanical Equipment, Hydro-Electric Power Plant,  Smelter and Railway System Completed.  Reports  received  Tuesday at the  local offices of the Granby Smelting  company   from   W.    A.   Williams,  superintendent in charge of construction at Hidden Creek, B.  C,   state  that the  entire   mechanical  equipment, including the smelter,   hydroelectric power plant,   machine shops  and railway  system,   is  completed  and  will   begin   operations January  i5, says the Spokesman-Review.  It,  will require not less than two weeks  to, get the machinery adjusted, and  Superintendent    Williams' predicts  that permanent operations  will   not'  be inaugurated before Feburary   1;  Construction   at   Hidden   Creek/  begun nearly two years ago, represents   an   expenditure, of   approximately  $3,000,000,, and   the enter-  prise,has been financed from Granby  earnings, aside from   the  $900,000  disbursed in dividends in 1913._The  capitalization of the corporation was  increased  several  months-sigo from  $15,000,000 to $20,00,000, and $1,-  500,000 of the additional capital has  been   paid   in, but this has been expended in acquiring new properties,-  none of it being enlisted in development at Hidden Creek.  The new smelter, built primarily,  to handle the output of the Hidden  Creek mines, which now have ap��  proximately ' 8,000,000 >. tons<sof ore  at Grand Forks are located, but  they are so situated and equipped  that the Operating expense will be  much less, and the proximity.of the  mines to the smelter, connected by  \l/i miles of electric railway, reduces transportation on the ore to  the minimum. t  ��� The report states that there are  16 inches of snow on the level at  Hidden Creek, but that the buildings  were all inclosed and roofed before  the storms came, making possible  completion of the work on schedule,  the original estimate providing for  blowing in the smelter, furnaces between January 1 and Feburary 1,  1914.  Granby Consolidated has been a  prime favorite on the Boston Stock  Exchange during the week, Hayden-  Stone and other prominent interests  being heavy purchasers, says the  New York Mining Age.  Some 8,000,000 tons of ore of an  average grade of 2.2 per cent Copper  have already been blocked, out on  this property, and a recovery of 40  pounds of the metal per ton is expected. Some estimates give the  Hidden Creek ore reserves already  blocked out as nearer 11,000,000  than 8,000,000 tons.

MILD WEATHER HITS  BOUNDARY COUNTRY  Retards Winter Sports���League  Hockey Games Postponed���  Hockey Game Monday.  Milder   weather  than   was   evei  known before  in Phoenix   was  the  climatic  condition   prevailing   here  the first of the week.    The* snow  almost   entirely   disappeared,    and  wheeled vehicles again took the place  of sleighs for a  day  or  two.    The  ice   in   the big skating rink became  flooded with water, and skating was  out  of the   question.    The League  hockey   games  to  be  played   this  week had  to be   called, off.    This  was   the one  between Phoenix and  Greenwood to.be played, here   Monday night, the  one between   Phoenix  and   Grand   Forks   at   Grand  Forks Thursday night, and the  one  between  Grand Forks  and  Greenwood at Greenwood   Friday   night.  Thursday     night .   the    weather  turned colder and the  skating   rink  has again been opened.    If the  ice  is   in   condition,  in  all  probability  there will be a  hockey   match   here  next   Monday  night    between   the  Greenwood and Phoenix teams. "  Card of Thanks  G.

Two shifts are employed  on this work and the winze is already down 50 feet.  Eighteen mines in the Kootenay  and Boundary districts of British  Columbia shipped out 6,814 tons of  ore, which brought the total receipts  of the Consolidated company's plant  for 1913 to 351,059 tons.  Ruddy & McKay were awarded  the contract for hauling the ore from  the Silver Standard mine to the cars  at New Hazelton. The contract is  a big one, probably double the  amount of ore that was at first anticipated. Ruddy & McKay will  get their outfit in shape and start  hauling at once.  The news that the Red Cliff mine  at Stewart is to be reopened in the  spring is received with intense satisfaction on every hand. The mine,  which was one. of the mainstays of  the camp from its inception, has  been shut down for the last twelve  months, and the loss of its pay roll  has been keenly felt. The impetus  given to copper mining generally in  this part of the world by the activity  of the Granby Consolidated Mining  company, has been the direct cause  ofthe new capital being interested,  and it is learned on the very best  authority that sufficient money has  been raised to start to block out tl.e  immense bodies of copper already  proven to be existant in the min��.  A new phase in mining promises :o  open   early in   the spring",  the sacking and packing out of  high-grade ore from the various rich  properties in the district.  Great interested is being manifested in Rossland at the receipt of  authentic information to the effect  that the Nickle Plate mine is to be  reopened. The property has lain  idle for nearly ten years, except that  part of the plant is being operated  under lease by the Le Roi No. 2.  The Nickel Plate is owned by the  Rossland-Kootenay Mining company, Ltd., England, with C. Williamson Milne as chairman and F.  A. LaBouchere, secretary. Bedford  McNeill, consulting engineer for  the company, was at Rossland with  the touring geologists and mining  engineers last fall, carrying back to  England accurate reports of the  great success of the operations of  the Consolidated Mining and Smelting. Co., Ltd., and reporting that  rich veins in the War Eatjle and  Centre Star ran in the direction of  the Rossland-Kootenay company's  properties. At the annual meeting  of the company, it was decided to  spend from $50,000 to $100,000 on  exploration work and diamond  drilling, - C. H. Stewart, of Alexander, Hill & Stewart, consulting  mining engineers, has been in  Rossland recently investigating for  the company and has sailed for  England. The mine is down 800  feet.  :;ifel  The Place to Get  Distinctive Clothes  Clothes that set you apart,   that, by their very excellence and style, mark you as "Somebody."

A Pittsburg physician, is reported  as saying that an evening's relaxation in the company of good liquor  aud reasonable men relieves the  strain and benefits the bodies of  men whose work is constant and  trying; especially if it be of the  brain. Of course, he says such  evenings should not come too often  and^should never degenerate into  sprees. His belief will be condemn  ed by the prohibitionists, but there  ate many who will share it. And  men like the governors of the Caro-  linas who addressed each^other on  the subject on- a famous occasion  will be inclined to criticise it for its  moderation.
