K,MZ  The above was lhe result of the  warmest election ever held in I'hoenix.  In fact, there has never been a coiitesi  before for mayor, and not mt.'ch of a  contest for the aldermanic seats.  After the ballots were counted by  D.J. Matheson, the returning office),  the following was found to be tlie result:  FOR MAYOR.  G. W.

'I he workers on both sides weie busy getting  out the vote, and quite a number of  voters living in oilier places came  here to cast their ballots.  Nominatioiis were held on Monday,  as per notice, and the names above  given were duly placed in njinination.  Tuesday evening Mr. Delahay held  a meeting at Miners' Union hall, th'j  hall being well filled. Mr. Delahay,  Mayor Rumberger and R. 11.

Mr. Rumberger has now been elected as mayor of Phoenix for the sixth  time since the city was incorporated.  Heretofore, he has: received the office  by acclamation, this being the first  time that there was a contest. Mr.  Marshall, who wps re-qlected, ha$ also  During December the' Providence  mine shipped four/carloads of ore.  Several electric'.locomotives., have  been ordered  for  use at the. Granby  smelter.  ',":'   . .".';.'  The electric slag hauling locomotive at the B.C. Copper Co.'s smelter  is now in use.     /  The E. P.' U.' shipped a carload of  second grade ore'last week to the  Greenwood smelter.  i Work is proceeding on, the 56 foot  (sinking contraction the Lancashire  Y-ass for lhe Montreal & Boston Consolidated.   ."        .���$; >,'     .-'"���'' '.';'  A car of second-class ore was  ship-  [ed frpm the Skylark mine this week,  ts destination being the Granby smel  ter.    ���..'"���   ���       '.;&���;���  A 30 h. p. boiler and 25 h. p. double drum hoist have been installed in  the glory hole 6f the Senator mine,  Summit cainp.  The n:w machinery plant at lhe  Uetis and Bespems mines, being developed by Chicago capitalists, has  bceti installed and is in working order.  Owing... to the power, shortage two  furnaces at the Granby smelter.were  blown out this week. It is hoped  that i\ua. four can;, be kept running.  The ore shipments <ver-e, of course,  also cut down accordingly, so that the  C. I'. R. pro'bably has no car shortage  just at present-.-, - j-  It is unde.rstrjj^d-i'hat the Montreal  & Boston Consolii'wted is looking into  the question of ulili/.'ing electric power  at the smelter at Boundary Ealls.  When more furnaces and a converting  plant are put in, as intended, it would  mean quite a saving in expense���if it  can be obtained.  It is expected that the repairs to  the Rawhide ski]) pocket, that was demolished last week by a blast of ore,  will be completed sometime early next  week, when shipments will be' .resumed and tbe second furnace at the  company's Boundary Falls smelter  blown in again.  . C. E. Lane, head electrician for the  Granby Co., arrived here Thursday,  and will spend two or three weeks installing the electrical apparatus tor the  No. 3 tunnel and ore bins and ore  crusher connecting, including tlie electric locomotive, transformersub-station,  trolley wires, motors, etc.  The Cariboo mine at ("amp McKin-  ney is said to be likely to resume operations in .March. The shareholders  will decide nt a meeting to he held in  Toronto next month. There is also  talk of the Waterloo company making  an early start and also rumors of its  consolidation with the Fontenoy company.  Both the new and old compressors  at the Brooklyn are in use at that  mine, but there is- not sufficient, power  yet to operate the Stemwinder also,  which is now all ready for work. It  is, therefore, expected that the compound half of the Brooklyn air compressor, giving tho [lower for ten more  drills, will be shortly ordered.  This week W. A. Harkin put  through a deal by which the Coro and  Canadian claims, in Skylark camp, lying between the Last Chance and the  Crescent, were bonded to A syndicate  of Grand Forks people from James  Sutherland, of Greenwood. ' The syndicate includes Mr. E. R. Northrup,  Lord Arthur Riiiuy, W. J. Cook, 1-w  Mcintosh, W. I. Bassett, Dan McDonald, George Rutherford, J. A. McCallum and Dr. Kingston. A small  force ot men has already been started  at work on the claims, which  12-inch vein of ore that gives  values at a depth of about 30  the shaft.  Once again the power question is  growing -actijer.-in. the boundary..--A  ���couple > of weeks ago the :pov-,e'r*stq-  tion at Cascade could not get Water  enough from Kettle river to operate'al^  ���three-of- the double turbines, but the  soft spel! iii the valleys helj.ed blatters considerably Tor a 'short time.  This week, however, the zero weather  has put a worse phase on the situation  than ever. But two wheels-are being  operated,Affording.' but. abcut, 2000  horse power to supply'tcontracts with  Boundary niii'es and smelters for 3000  horse power. Consequently some  thing had to be done.    . I  Tuesday Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Co., blew out one of his six furh.-  naces, and.'-Wednesday-.-another- fol:  lowed,, leaving but ;four of the entire  battery in commission. The Gieeb-  wood siiielteris ope'rn'ilrig only one of  its two furnares at night.:. The Boundary Falls smelter is not affected, as  steam is the-motive power.there.  At-'the, Granby mines the greatest  trouble has'been to keej) brie half of  one of the 30 drill compressors in  commission/ The reserve steam. O'd  Ironside's'' ten' diill ���rei'inipressor was  stinted u'n, and the: Knob Hill ten  drill steam machine is also'now'be*,  ing put in shape as fast, as-.possible  fur the same,purpose! , With these tw6  auxiliary steam compressors, the Gran  by Co. will probably be able to get  aiong for the time beinu.  It was thought, at one time, that it  might be necessary to cut off the lights  of Greenwood and Phoenix for a time,  in order to afford power to operate .the;  mines and smelters. But as far as  Phoenix is concerned, at least,- this  will not be done at present. Another  proposed plan was the cutting off of  the city lights at 11 p. m., thereby  releasing power enough to help-things  out a little. '..; .  While the difficulty'is being budged  over in die manner stated, no one can  tell how- long even this can be' aone.  It is a matter of history that-ihembnth  of February' is the one in which the  Kettle river is the lowest of any month  in the year. KvitrerYtly that' month  will tell the story again this year, and  no one cares to nrophesy the results  One thing seems, pertain, and that  is lhat there is not enough power developed in.the Boundary to answer  present demands, let alone the expected increase this year,anil tbe years to  come. Some think that the Bonnitig-  ton Falls plant, on Kootenay river,  which now supplies Rossland and  Trail, and is distant about 75 miles  from Phoenix, will he called oh in the  near future, or perhaps Kettle Falls.  At present it is understood that the  plant at Bennington Falls has all it  can take care of in power transmission.  GOLD BUG BEiftfi  " ;"  " :     r IN(X��W^TED.

Bell took to  the. woods,. and  the police and deputies were on  the  chase within half an  hour : after   the  crime was  committed.    At  Hartford  Junction, about three hours later,. Bell  fell into the(hauds of Chief of  Police  Flood, who soon had him in the local ���  jail.   He was committed for  trial   by  Police Magistrate Williams,  the   trial  taking place at Greenwood tn October.  . At  the  trial,    presided    over   .by  Chief Justice Gordon Hunter, A. M.  Whiteside, of Greenwood,   defended  Bell, and the crown was represented by  Ernest Miller, of Grand Fork-,.   Bell's  plea  was  that   the woman killed herself,  but   the   phys-iciaii's   testimony  showed   that^this  was  not  possible.  The man's lecord was looked up, and  it was found to be bad, behaving made  threats  on   the   woman's  life before.  The jury  found  him   guilty, and the  judge sentenced him to be hanged on  the 13th of January.     The crime was  committed on a Friday, and Bell paid  the death'penalty on a Friday.    Bell  was not a resident of Phoenix, and had  been here but two or three days, having corns   here with a colored boxing  combination.  Charles  Kendricks  Rossland '1  P.

It is now certain that the low water
prevailing in Kettle river will not be.
higher, for two or three' months at
least. This means a shortage p( power for Boundary's biggest mines and
smelters, to say nothing of lighting the
cities ol Greenwood and Phoenix.
While the situation is not favorable,
strenuous efforts will be made to keep
everything in operation, and it is hoped
that this can be done by a little man-
a width of fifteen inches. Stoping is
now in progress-on the 80-foot level.
The work is in charge of VVm. Rowe, a
veteran miner, who is considered an
authority on true fissure veins. The
working force comprises twelve men.
New tubes are being installed in the
boiler and a week hence will see the
work of sinking the shaft well under

will more lh,aji double the ore reserves

".   With the completion of the V, V. &
£. extension of the Great Northern
railway to Phoenix, directly connecting the Granby mines and smelter, the
interesting question is revived, will Mr.
Hill's  line do most of the carrying of
the Granby tonnage from the mines,
and thus practically shut out the C. P.
' R., that has for several years enjoyed a
" monopoly of the ore hauling of the
Boundary, not only of the   Granby
mines J>ut from all other  mines in the
■ district.   .     .-.. I
' The argument is advanced, and at
first'51'ght seems to have some force in
it, that if Mr. Hill can control the
carrying of one ton of Granby ore he
can equally as well control the hauling
- of every ton. This is, of course assuming that he can directly, or indirectly, bring influences to bear to give
him part of the"tonnage from the mines
of this camp.
But there is another phase to the
question that we believe has been generally overlooked by the public at
large. While it is admitted, and is
clear to all, that the Great Northern
will haul a goodly proportion of the
Granby ores, would it be good policy
on the part of the management of the
Granby Co., to practically give the
Great Northern a monopoly of that
tonnage, any more than it would to
give it all to the C. P. R.?
Above all things, the Granby Co. is
known as a business-like concern, and
like all such institutions, has no desire
to be at the mercy of any one railway
or other corporation with which it has
to deal. Human nature is much the
same the world over, and any railway
. company will generally secure "all the
traffic will bear" if it is the only line
touching the points where that t^l^c
.originates, This is exempjj^d by the
high rates charged, oft or,e by the C. P.
1 R,. wh.en U was t.he only line into the
Boundary, and before the threats of
lhe invasion of the territory by the
Great Northern became a reality-—
which rates have since been reduced
two or three times.
It is said that the C. P. R. officials
themselves are a bit apprehensive as
to the outcome of the division of ore
tonnage from Phoenix with the Great
Northern, and some think that they
will get a mighty small part of it in
the near future.
We take a different view of the matter, however, and believe that the tonnage will, to a large extent, be pietty
evenly divided between the two great
railways, for the simple reason that it
would be good policy and good business to do this on the part pftheGran-

Do Not Suppraii 1 Cough.
When you have a cough do not try
to remove the cause. The cough is
only a symptom of some disease, and
the disease is what you should cure,
then the' cough will stop ol itself. The
most common cause of coughing is a
cold. Anodynes will promptly suppress the cough, and preparations containing chloroform, opium, etc., are
used for that purpose, but they do not
cure the cold. Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy on the other hand does not
suppress the cough, but relieves it by
removing from the throat and lungs
the mucus which obstructed the breathing and allaying the irritation and tickling in the throat. It also opens the
secretions and effectually and permanently cures the cold as well as the
cough.   For sale by all druggists.
Mining Engineer Grows Enthusiastic,
The Skylark mine in Skylark camp
has already shipped three carloads. o(
ore. On the dump are thirty tan?,
seventy-five per cent, of wjjicfe h of
No. 1 grade, says, th^ Greenwood
The Skyjujl^ has already justified
the cqpftdence of the Phoenix syndi-
qaje which recently acquired it on a
working bond. There is every reason
to believe that the mine, besides meeting the payroll of over $1000 per month
will be paid for out of the profits from
ore shipments. The Times man accompanied by W. H. Jeffrey, M.E.,
made an inspection of the Skylark
during the past week. Mr. Jeffery
could not testrain his enthusiasm after
traversing the various levels and climbing up the various stopes. "The Skylark," said he, "is a bonanza and has
large ore reserves in sigh*. I look to
see "lhe output doubled at an early
date and anticipate the payment of
large dividends."
The incline shaft sunk on the lead
extends to a depth of 120 feet. At
the 50-foot level drifts on the vein extend north and south 50 feet in either
direction; and at the 80-foot level one
drift runs north 130 feet and south a
distance ofyo feet.    The vein, which

Turning; Smoke Into Gold. ���  Queen' Elizabeth of England  was not a thoroughgoing spinster, for she had so 'little prejudice against the practice of smoking  that she permitted Sir Walter Raleigh  his pipe In the royal presence. She was  sufficiently a woman, however, to twit  him openly on his devotion to the weed,  and It was on one of these occasions���  or so the author-ot "The Soverane  Herbe" shrewdly i'surmises���thevt the  knight replied:      > ���     !  "I can assure Tour Majesty that I  have, so well expert, need the nature of  It that I can tell even the weight of the  smoke In any quantity I consume."  "I doubt It much.iSlr Walter," replied  Elizabeth, holding jt was Impossible to  weigh emoKe, and mayhap scenting e.  Joke, '"and. I will wage,r you twenty  gold angels tbat you do' not solve my  ���oubt." .  .Gallantly accepting the wager, Raleigh (tiled bis pipe with a weighed  quantity of tobaoco, smoked H out, and  then, weighing the resultant ashes, an|-  nounced the weJght he had smoked  away.  "Tour Majesty cannot deny that the  difference has disappeared In smoke."  "Truly, I cannot," answered the  Queen. Ordering 'the wager to be paid,  she turned to the courtiers around her  and said: "Many alchemists have I  heard of who turned gold Into smoke,  but Raleigh ts the first who has turned,  smoke Into gold."--  ':Hli  ,Senii/aH gii^scnptions to.this office.  ifeNiX  PIONEER,  PHOENIX, B. C.  Musical M.D.'s of the Future.  A PATIENT having been cured ?oi  smallpox by the witching strains  of a. violin, a contemporary thinks  It not at all unlikely that it may ere  long be discovered thmt music has a  therapeutic value heretofore undreamed  of. Music may In time become a most  important branch, of medical science,  and the doctor of tbe future may, after  diagnosing his case, take a violin or ���  cornet from his bag, as the case may  demand, and render tlie wedding march  from "Lohengrin." or Schubert's "Serenade," according to the progress the  malady iias made. Different tunes  rendered on different Instruments, la  various tempos, may become necessary  at critical, moments, and this will naturally develop a new solence���tlr.it of  writing musical prescriptions. Muslcnl  boxes and orchestrions may yet be used  In hospital-wards, and the shops In  which sheet music and musical Instruments nre now dispensed arc likely to  be the drug stores of the future. Patent music Is a possible successor of  patent medicine, and we may yet tako  a flve-mlnute dose of "Lanlgan's Bnll"  adagio, or a seven-minute-and-a-hall  dose of Mendelssohn's "Songs Without  Words" andante, for our neuritis or  necrosis. Medical music and medical  solence will be one, and the scalpel will  bo supplanted by the mandolin, and the  clinical thermometer by the piccolo.  I  I  ^weet are the uses of advertising'  Which rerrfarlc is promptsd by the advertisement ,of,ah urideriaker in a Republic, paper.
