Yesterday was payday at the Granby  mines, but, as work did not start till  December 26th, the amount distributed  was comparatively small.  Hedley Miners' Union No. 161, it  is understood, has accepted the lower  wage scale which went into effect on  January 1st, being, that now in force in  Phoenix, with some exceptions.  Granby had six furnaces in operation  this week, and expected to get the  entire battery of eight furnaces in blast  by the end ofthe week, the ore shipments now running about 2,500 tons  per day, soon to be increased to 3,000  tons or more daily.  The office force at the Mother  Lode has been let out and the telephone removed. 'The office force  ot the B. C. Copper Co's smelter has  been reduced to the minimun, and  watchmen are about the only ones  seen now at mine  and smelting works.  At the Granby'mines the force has  been steadily increased and there are  now about 450 men employed, which  number is being added to daily, as the  smelter is able to eat up more ore with  additional furnaces being blown in.  There are several men in camp for  each position* with a long  waiting list.  It is understood to.be the definite  iutention of the Dominion Copper Co.  to carry out the plans made just be-  lore the shut down at the smelter in  October, namely, to convert the two  old and small furnaces into one larger  furnace���undoubtedly the largest yet  made in Canada. '. This is said to be  the view of M. M. Johnson, the consulting engineer, and will doubtless be  carried out as soon asa resumption is  decided upon.  Wm. Spier, western inspector of the  Eastern Townships Bank, was here  Tuesday, and thence went to Midway,  Keremeos and Spokane, on his way to  Winnipeg and Sherbrpoke. He expects to have headquarteis at Victoria,,  where a branch of the bank is likely to  be established. He has been with the  bank 25 years,  B. C. COPPER  �� DOMINION  Unfounded Rumors as  to Resumption.  Nothing  Definite   Yet   From  Either of the Companies.  With ;he Granby Consolidated  operating at full capacity, and employing from 800 to 1,000 men, the question is frequently asked,' when will the  B. C. Copper Co. and Dominion  Copper Co. resume operations. This  week the Pioneer representative asked  this question' of J. E. McAllister,  manager of the B: C. Copper Co.  In effect Mr. McAllister said that it  was his understanding, on advices  from the eastern office ofthe company,  that, when the conditions generally  were right, the company would once  more resume, mining and smelting.  The company, he said, had no interests  to look after but those of the shareholders, and when the directors were  satisfied that their best interests were  best served by so doing, work would  be again started. .      ���  Since the close-down in November,  Mr.McAllister had _been assured by  the C. P. R. that: there would no  longer be any difficulty about plenty of  ore dumps, nor regarding motive  power to move ore, blister copper, etc.  He also felt satisfied ..that there would  be some concessions in the price  charged at the collieries for coke by  the time they were ready to start  operations again. The labor situation  was clearing itself,/and there was a  feeling that the price of copper would  be, at least, a little better after awhile.  But he was satisfied the . company  would not resumetilla.ll the conditions  were propitious. The1 margin at present in handling the 'iow grade ores of  the Boundary was too .close to permit  of anything but the   harmonious work  ing together of all interests   of whatsoever kind, in order to make a profit.  When the B. C. Copper smelter  started again, Mr. McAllister .expected  the Snowshoe, in Phoenix camp, also  to do likewise, as the latter had a  contract to furnish ore to the former,  when resumption would take place he  could not say, or even guess.   ���  The annual meeting of the- British  Columbia Copper Co. is expected t<>  be held late'this, month or early next  month in New York, following which  there should be something known.  Domloiou Copper.  This week there have been man y  rumors current about the resumption  of operations by the Dominion Copper  Co. In the absence of W. C. Thomas,  the manager, who has been spending  the holidays in Salt Lake City, Utah,  nothing definile can be stated, except  that no announcements have been  made officially. Supt. Rundberg, of  the company's mines, was unable to  set a date for resumption, but thought  he would   know   something  after   the  Two weeks from next Monday the  annualmeeting of the Dominion Copper- Co. is to held in Phoenix, and  whether that will have any bearing on  the conditions as regards resumption,  remains to be seen.  Looking at the whole matter in its  broad light, it would seem that a few  weeks will seesome move made for resumption by both of these companies,  if, indeed, something is not heard  sooner. At any rate, there prevails a  general air of expectancy in the matter.  CITY ELECTION  WARM AGAIN  Matheson  ar.d  Rumberger Will Run.

Cordially,  Progress and Results at  Boundary Mines in  1907  [concluded peon last issue.]  To the Ratepayers  Of   THE  City of Phoenix*  3l^tl��fll��I^5��:  tfo-������^>^^  Other Boundary Camps.  Comparatively little has been done at  the several other Boundary camps this  year, outside those mentioned below.  Franklin camp, at the headwaters of  the North Fork of Kettle river, about 40  miles north of Grand Forks, lias some  excellent prospects. Moat of the work  this year has been done on the Maple  Leaf group, where some machinery has  been installed. But this pioperty, and  and the well known McKinley, Gloucester and others are all handicapped by  being so far from transportation. This,  however, is gradually beine; remedied,  the Kettle Valley railway having a  charter to build to and through Franklin  caniD, and this year having actually completed 20 miles of construction and track-  laying. When the road is completed it  will be a great stimulus to this camp.  The Golden Eagle mine, on the North  Fork of Kettle river, is being developed  by a small force, after being idle for  S3��e years, and has recently made test  shipments to the Granby smelter. The  Little Bertha, also up the North Fork,  has also been developed.  A number of other properties ol no  little promise in this district have had  considerable work done thereon, but :is  yet none of them have reached the steady  shipping stage. Nevertheless,there can  be but little doubt that some good mines  will be developed in the North Fork  section.  Long Lake camp lias one mine at work,  the Jewel, where a small force is kept  busy, there being au adequate machinery  plant. It is understood that the Scotch  owners of the property will make some  shipments of the g< Id ore this winter  over the snow, the mine being located  about 6 miles from Eholt, the nearest  railway point.  Camp McKinney this year has had  more activity than for several years,  the famous Cariboo having been operated  underlease by 11 syndicate of residents  of Phoenix. This mine has paid more  than have a million in dividends in the  past, being a free gold producer, with a  full equipment of machinery, stump  mili, etc., and having extensive underground workings, the present lessees  having sei;t out some n<>ltl bricks and  shipped a car of concentrate:!. It is yet  hoped that the properly will icdi.-em the  good name which it had for iimny years.  Nothing h;is been done in Wellinylon  camp this year, which in the early days  ��� if the Boundary had several shipping  mines. It is understood, however, that  tlie Dominion Cuppfcr Co., which owns  ihe Athlestan group in this camp, will  ouce more, in the not diBtant future,  operate the property, it being u gold  producer with good values, and having  already shipped over 10,000 tons of ore.  even though two miles from the nearest  railway siding of the C. P. R.  On the West Fork of Kettle river a  number of high grade mines have been  worked to some extent this year, and  some shipments have been made, notwithstanding the 40 mile wauon haul to  the railway at Midway. The Sally and  Duncan were among these, and are said  to be looking well with development.  They are close to the surveyed route of  the Midway & Vernon railway, confidence in the ultimate bnildingof which  is still strong, notwithstanding the many  delays in getting the project on its feet.  \\ hen it is built, it will open up an extremely rich mineralized territory, and  many good mines will undoubtedly be  on the shipping list, the ores of but few  being now able to stand the heavy expense of a long wagon haul. The Riverside mine, near Rock creek, has also  shipped a few carloads this year.  On each side of Greenwood is a high  grade ore belt, which in past years has  given good results, the gold and silver  ore giving all the way from $tiO to $200  per ton by the carload. This year not as  much has been accomplished as previously, from one cause or another.  The Providence mine shipped some  700 tons of high glade ore, but has not  been in operation for some months. It  is understood to be the intention of the  Chicago owners to sink the present 000-  foot shaft to the 1.000-foot level and  equip the property with ' larger ma  chinery.  The Skylark is another mine that has  made another good record in the past,  being owned by a Phoenix company,  and having practically been paid for by  ore taken from'the mine. The coming  year should also see this mine in operation once more.  In Skylark camp the Crescent mine  has been idle most of the year, awaiting  along-delayed shipment of machinery.  This is now installed and the property is  working, with the best electrical equipment of any mine in the high grade class  in the Boundary. The property is a  silver and gold producer.  During the year the Strathmorc has  been operated almost continuously, the  results having been quite satisfactory to  the Chicago owners of the property.  Considerable work has been done on  the. Kay, the Elkhorn, the K. V. U. and  a number of others that are well known  in tlie high grade section.  During the jeur the LeRoi mine,  located about five miles from Camp McKinney was bonded by a syndicate from  Phoenix, and cnsVlriab'e development  was done, givii.); n 11.���>��� t encouraging  showing.  ladies and Gentlemen:���  At the request of many ratepayers  and citizens of Phoenix, I have decided to offer myself as a candidate  for Mayor of this city, at the forthcoming election, to be held on Thursday, January  i6lh.  I have been closely indentified with  the growth and the upbuilding of the  city of Phoenix, and I believe that  our Mountain City has a more prosperous future than-any" other mining  town in the province of British Columbia. ..  I feel that a sound and stable government is more necessary today in this  city.than it.has ever.,been..before,.and  the interests of the business men and  the workmen in the mines need greater  safeguards than hitherto. It it the  duty of every citizen of this city of ours,  irrespective of party affiliations or  sectional feelings, to guarantee this.  By these methods alone can confidence  be again restored and prosperity returned.  I wish to lay all party politics aside,  believing it is best to depart from all  political lines, and to unite as citizens  to improve our present condition.  It is to be regretted that the city's  finances during the last 12 months  have been so deplorably managed that  only a stronger and more devoted administration will be able to place them  on the solid foundation that they have  heretofore enjoyed.  There are a few measures I wish to  express myself on very plainly, and if  elected, will endeavor to carry out;  namely:  1 st. I propose to exclude all pro  fessional gamblers from the city, and  will not countenance the term "Wide  Open Town" to be applied to Phoenix.  2d. To conduct the affairs of the  city on the most economical basis  consistent with good public  service.  3d. To reduce the indebtedness of  the city as rapidly as possible, without  burdening the ratepayers with unusually  high taxation.  4th. To reorganize the Fire Department and encourage the volunteer firemen to take a greater interest in raising the efficiency of this department,  thus guaranteeing to property owners  greater safety against loss by fire.  5th. To keep the city in as sanitary  condition as possible, thus avoiding  the dangers of sickness and epidemics.  These are a few of the matters  which I will use all my efforts, if elected,  to bring about, and I confidently look  forward to your general support in  trying to carry out these measures.  G. W.   RUMBERGER.  Things municipal are beginning to  take on a more interesting aspect, as  the date of the annual city election  draws nigh. It has been known that  the present incumbent of the mayor's  chair, D. J. Matheson, was not specially anxious to hold the office another  term, though he might be persuaded  to run again. G. W. Rumberger, who  wni mayor of Phoenix for. seven consecutive terms, and who for the .first  time was beaten by Mr. Matheson last  January, has definitely announced that  he will be a candidate once more, and  it may be assumed will make a hard  fight to win. In-this case, it is now  known that Mr. Matheson, just to be  sure of some gaity among the municipalities, will  enter   the   battle  of  the  jSkip...  Vice...  2nd ..  Lead....  Skip. . .

Skip Sherbino beat Skip Strutzel, 7-10  For aldermanic timber many names  have been mentioned, but none of  them have yet been definitely announced���at least as far as the public  is concerned. However, it is likely  that at least six men can be found who  can qualify and who are willing to  serve the city without money and without price for the year 1908. As next  Monday is nomination day, and election  on theThursday following, the campaign  will be short and sharp, and undoubtedly have some surprises for a number,  as such elections always do. Each  man will have a bunch of friends who  is sure he can win���but some one will  be left, that is certain.  The city voters' list of 305 names  will be closely scanned from this on,  hut on account of the many changes  and absentees since the legislation  closed, he is a bright one who can  analyze '.it "withvany"degree^of"satisfaction.

Greenwood has 394 names on its  voters' list this year, and Grand Forks  521 names  Notwithstanding the prevailing  quietude m Midway, Christmas was  celebrated for the little folks.  The contest is still on in Grand  Forks, as to whether the Grand Forks  hotel should be granted a license.  Ties cut by miners, smeltermen and  others in the Boundary are being delivered along the C. P. R. right-of-way.  Cascade has a Frenchman, so it is  said, who can make 100 ties per day.  At any; rate, he'll not have to walk the  ties.

Rodolphe I emieux, of Ottawa  who went to Tokio, to secure the suppression  of Japanese  immigration to  British Columbia, is homeward bound  having practically accomplished   nothl  ��ng.     While   he   was  away the "Solid  Seven"   Liberals    in    the    Dominion  house, took  a  whole  day  to explain  their attitude on the question, in order  to square  themselves 'with, their  con-  stituents, with a   Dominion election in  sight.    They also  accomplished nothing.    Meantime, the Japs  continue to  pour into  this   province, and  another  Japanese riot   occured  in   Vancouver,!  the storm center, the Japs   themselves  being   the  aggressors   this time.     We  do not want the  Japs, but   apparently  we cannot  help ourselves   under  the  present  treaty.    The  question,   aj.art  from   politics,   grows more and   more  perplexing.  A.   S.   Mood    received   word    this  week   of   the   death  of   his    oldest  brother,  Alexander. John  Hood,   at  Yarmouth, - Nova Scotia, on December  30th     Deceased enjoyed the distinction of being  the  oldest  post mater in  the Dominion of Canada, having been  in that  position   since   1862,   or over  45 years.    He was  advanced in  age,  and had  seen   the   work ofthe  post-  office grow  from   where   he only  required a few shelves in   the back  of a  small store, to the fine stone and hrick  buildihg in which his business   for the  Dominion    was    conducted,   in.   that  quaint old town on   the Bay of h'tindy,  at the time of his decease.  .�����  The editor of this g. f. j. nearly had  a faint one day this week, when a subscriber walked into the santum sanctorum and actually attempted to pay  again for his subscription, which was  already paid up till next summer. Of  course, he was advised as to the true  state of affairs, and the editor had  some difficulty in persuading him to  pocket his two cold cold plunks once  more, but finally succeeded.  .., - have responded, but for the sake ofthe  ' I typographical artists who  produce the  Pioneer���and who find they must eat  like  other   people���it   is  hoped  the  j   balance will send   along   the amounts  due very soon.  I-eople are wont to think lhatjjustice  is sometimes pretty swift in  Canada,  and  they  have    reason.    Last   week  Friday James  Turner  and John Mc-  Cann were brought before  the   police  magistrate     charged    with     stealing  chickens, etc.,  from D. L. Mclntom-  iney and others.    They elected   for a  speedy trial  and got it, beginning at  1.30 p.m.    By. 2.30 they  had   been  sentenced to three  mouths in   Nelson  jail, and were on the way to the station  ��� to be  taken  there.    Both men   were  well known characters about the camp.  Constable Docksteader worked up the  case, with the aid of Constable l)odd,  of Arrowhead^ whom he  had asked to  be sent  here  to assist.    If the men  had had trial at the county court, they  might have received five years at hard  labor.

"At the outset of the new year, as  an indication of the harmonious re  lations between the Granby interests  and their employes, you may say that  we will not only start the new year  operating at lull capacity, but further  than that, in view of the exceptionally  promising outlook for 1908, we plan  to greatly increase the capacity of btir  plant, the largest copper smelting plant  in Canada, and, with the exception of  Anaconda, the largest on the. continent." ,'"  This statement relative to conditions  in the Boundary district was made by  J.

"At full capacity from now on we  will be turning out at the Granby  smelter from 3,000 to 3,5000 tons of  ore daily," continued Mr. Graves.  "This is out present full' capacity  and there is every indication that we  will be running at full capacity from  now on until the middle of* nsxt summer.  "So exceptionally encouraging is  the outlook in the Boundary country  that I think I may safely say that by  the middle of next summer we will be  in such a position -as ;-to.feel in.every  way justified in increasing our capacity  by at least a thousand tons a day.  This will bring the Granby smelter up  to a total capacity of fully 4,500 tons  daily. .'-..'  "Our present aggregate monthly output is 100,000 tons, or about 1,450,  000 tons a year. ..-���./.'.-.���  "By increasing pur output, as I said,  to 4,500b tons a day, we will be turning but 1,642,500 tons a year.  Copper and civilization.  The place that copper now occupies,  and has occupied in the.past, as a factor in bringing about civilization is,  perhaps, little appreciated unless we  go back and follow up the facts, says  the Daily Mining Record. We read of  man in the stone, age, half savage, but  possessed of some skill in the manufacture of implements out of stone. Next  came the age of bronze, and it is here  that the influence of copper was first  felt, bronze being an alloy of copper  and tin. During the bronze age, by  means of this alloy, man became quite  proficient in the working.of the metal  into weapons and utensils. The age of  bronze is not past, and bronze is still,  and probably always will be, one of  our important alloys.  The application of unalloyed copper  to the manufacture of all kinds of  utensils and ornaments became quite  general before we have any record of  the appearance of iron. When iron did  come into the field it did not drive  copper out. Each had \t, place. When  brass, an alloy of copper and zinc, was  discovered, it became the most important alloy, and today its value can  hardly be overestimated. At the  present time copper, both pure and alloyed, is playing a more important part  than ever in industrial life, and. is the  means of our enjoying many of the  comforts that, without it, we would not  know. The reason for this is in the  development of electrical science and  industry. Copper, through its high  electrical conductivity, its abundance  and cheapness,' has naturally been universally'chosen as the best medium for  the conduction of electricity. It is beyond question that the electrical industry could not have been developed  to anything like its present extent without copper. We talk over copper  wires; electricity.for our electric lights  is brought over copper wires; our  trolley wires are copper; every electric  generator and motor is dependent on  copper; in fact,'it may be said that  every electrical apparatus is dependent  in some way on copper.   ..  If we felt the influence of copper  only in the benefits we derive through  elecricity, this would be sufficient to  keep it in its high place. But when  we think of some of the other uses to  which it is put, its importance can be  realized more than ever. Large quantities of sheet copper are used in build  ing, for making cornices, covering  roofs, etc. Brass is used on every  hand���in watches, clocks, signs, grills,  locks, door knobs, and things too  numerous to mention.  The public  responds   "in kind" to  store advertising.    If  it    is   big,   important, lull of significance  to thrifty  people���it will pull, it will   impress, it  -  will create trade, accordingly.  ':'-���'�����".

WATCHE  Child Died From Scalding  On Wednesday Agnes, the two year  old daughter of Fred and Mrs. Connolly, living in the Joe Black residence  in Golden Eagle addition, fell into a  pail of boiling water, and received  burns from which the little one died  Thursday morning.  Mrs,, Connolly had left the pail on  the floor, and when her back was  turned, the child stumbled and fell  into it, being horribly scalded, from  her neck to her heels. She was removed to the hospital at once, and  Dr. Dickson called, who did everything possible for the little one's sufferings, but she passed away about 24  hours afterwards, never recovering  from the shock. The funeral is to  be held today.  *j The Jeweler  C.PR. Time Inspector  COMING AND GOING  I Hotel Alexander  R. V. Chisholm, Prop-  Conducted in First-Class shape.'"'
