MacColl, who was  recently unanimously called to the  pastorate of the Presbyterian church,  has sent word that he will accept. A  meeting of the presbyteiy was held at  Grand Forks last week at which the  call was endorsed. According to the  arrangements, Mr. MacColl will be inducted next Thursday evening. He  was formerly located at Columbia, and  supplied the Phoenix church several  limes last summer. F'or the last few  months he has been doing missionary  work at Moyie, in East Kootenay.  After the induction a reception will  be given at the church, .it which the  ladies aid will serve refreshments.  Fiom the general trend of affairs,  as nearly as it can be ascertained,  James Breen, who formerly operated  the Brooklyn group in this camp, and  spent something like $100,000 in development thereon; may once.more be  in the saddle and in a way that'will'be'  a good thing for Phoenix especially,  as well as.the rest of the Boundary.  Arid thereby hangs a tale. ;  More than two years ago Mr. Bieen,  it is said,, made an agreement with the  directors of the Dominion Copper Co.,  whereby for the expenditure of a'cer-  tain sum of money in development of  the Brooklyn group in this camp and  the erection of a; smelter to treat the  ores, he would have a certain interest  in the company. He spent the money  on; the mines all right, and with the  best of success so far as opening up  large bodies of ore was concerned, but  he got into a wrangle with the directors,- among whom are Senator Cox,  Robert J affray, E. R. Wood, William  McKenzie,. Daniel D. Mann" and  others, and discontinued work altogether. His agreement called-for his  doing certain things in three years'  time, so it is said. That time is not  yet up by.severarmonlhs.,.  . J.. N. Greenshields, K. C.} is no.t  only the. solicitor for Mr. Maim and  Mr. McKenzie, but happens to be  vice-president of the Montreal and  Boston Copper Co., owning the Boun:  dary Falls smelter, which recently  ceased operations.  It appears that- several meetings ol  those most interested-have recently  been held in Toronto-and Mohtreaij  for the. purpose of-arranging the consolidation of the two companies, or  rather the acquirement of tlie smelter  by the Dominion Copper Co. President H. H. Melville, Munroe and  Munroe, J. N. Greenshields. of the  Montreal and Boston Copper Co., and  representatives of the Dominion Copper Co. were to meet Mr. Breen and  arrange the entire matter. At the  latest accounts this had not been accomplished, but it is likely to be completed by or before the middle of next  month.  As Mr. Breen is essentially a smelter man, and as he still has a considerable interest in the Dominion Copper  Co., .even though he has for the last  year or two busied himself with a  smelter at Crofton, Vancouver Island,  it would appear that the consolidation  of the two companies would be the  logical outcome of the present negotiations. The Montreal & Boaon  people have no mine capable of supplying the ore for the smeller, and the  Dominion people have no smelter. If  they get together, and s-tart out intending to do business, as they can if  they will, it will be a good thing for  them and for the Boundary. In the  meantime the rails have been laid to  the Brooklyn and Stemwinder ore  dumps, ready for use on short notice.  1 Bouniary Mln'.agNjtej  ��� ��������-* ���>**�������� ��+**  J  ���h  ��� �����*��*����������������*������������������������� ���������������>  .-A'small', dividend   will   shortly  be  paid by the Waterloo, Camp McKimiey.  This month, payday falling on Sunday at the Grai.by mines, the men will  bi paid next Monday. .  A gang nf sons of sunny. .Italy are  still ballasting on- the-Brooklyn and  Stemwinder spurs.  Last Saturday the second of the two  Davenport locomotives, was placed in  active service at the Granby mines.  It is working iu the No. 2 tunnel.  W. H. Fischer has completed his  contract of hauling Giey Eagle-ore to  the,head ofthe gravity tramway, on  the Knob Hill claim. Seve.al thousand tons were deliveied in this way.  Work was resumed at the Rath-  mullen this week, near Summit camp,  with a small fon e of men. Hon. G.  E. Foster is said to be a large share*  holder in this property, which has been  idle for a long time.  The Hall Mining and Smelting Co,  has contracted for the output of the  Oro Denoro mine, in Summit camp,  but the ore will be treated at the  British Columbia Copper Co.'s smelter at Greenwood for the present.  Work on the Senator group, in  Summit camp, is progressing steadily,  and so far about 300 tons of ore have  been shipped to the Granby smelter,  which concern has a bond -on the property. The ore has a large percentage  of iron, making it quite desirable for  smelting operations.  Phil McDonald and James Souther-  land; owners of the Elkhorn mine, in  Providence camp, this week made a-  rich strike in the property. The large  ^sized specimens are said to carry gold  and silver values at about $4 per  pound, making it one of the. most remarkable finds yet recorded in the  Boundar)t.Vri���'_���-*    --'���-. -;-  ��� Lib* ral�� Willing to be Sacrificed.  Duncan Ross, of Greenwood, organizer for the Interior District Liberal  Council, left on Monday for a trip  thiough the Okanat;an, Similkameen  and West Yale. As Mr. Ross is a candidate for the Liberal nomination in  :Y^e-Garifabo, it- is fairly certain that  his tour is in connection with his political aspiration. He appears confident  that he will stand more than a fighting  chance in the convention on the 13th..  ��� Hugh McCutcheon, Greenwood collector of customs; is also a candidate  for the nomination, and his friends in  the different parts of the riding pronounce the outlook very favorable.  With the exception of Greenwood, he  may carry the Boundary, and figures  on getting strong support from Okana-  gan, West Yale and Cariboo.  '  Of the northern men in the field,  Murphy of Ashcroft will probably be  the strongest, but a southern man  should win out.  Charles Hay, of Grand Forks, is another gentleman who would be willing  to accept the nomination if it could  not be avoided.  A. B. Hood, formerly in the head  office at Sherbrooke. Quebec, arrived  Saturday, and is the new acting manager of the Eastern Townships Bank  here. Norman II. Slack, who Vias  held that position for the last year or  two, and has made many friends here,  went to Grand Forks Tuesday.  Cotton rags wanted at the Pioneer  office. Highest price paid. Bring  'em along and get your money.  'The ladies having in charge the ball  in aid ol the Catholic church, which  occurs next Tuesday evening, report  an excellent sale for the tickets, which  means a large attendance that evening.  Movement for Reading Room.  A number of business men are talking up the establishment of a reading  room in a central location. The idea  is to secure about 50 subscribers for  the enterprise and rent a suitable  room or rooms, where the leading  periodicals of the day will be kept on  file, and where subscribers or their out  of town friends will have a quiet place  to smoke or read whenever desired.  So far, those to whom the plan has  been broached have looked upon it  favorably.  Latest Prices In Metals.  Nkw Youk���Copner, electrolytic, $12.-  37 @ $12.02,!,,; laki!, $12.37^ @ $12.75.

Vanoouver is talking of a Boosting  Club; after the pattern of similar or-  ganiz.-tti.ons in Denver and Portland.  The idea is to boost for all you are  worth for your own town or city, and  is well worthy of emulation in any pro  gressive community, the people of  which have faith in their resources.  Organizations like these, supported by  the press, as they are, do untold good.  The Golden Star, in referring to the  blowing in of the little.smelter recently in that town, remarks that it is the  only smelter in the province the motive  power of which is water. Probably  the editor of the Star has not heard of  thc Granby Co., that spent $100,000  in developing its own water power on  the North Fork of-Kettle river, for use  at the smelter.  B. C MINING :  ������Cf,,.,*,,,...,,,.. 5  Silverton people are again looking  for the operation of the Galena Farm  property.  It is_reported that the Last Chance  mine, in the Slocan, will pay a good  dividend some time before spring.  The most important mineral discovery in 1903, in British Columbia,  was undoubtedly that of Poplar Creek.  The Eva owners, in the Lardeau,  took out a gold brick valued at $s,ooc  as a result of the first 13 days' work  last month.  Air Compressors    :     Rock Drills  THE CAN&DI7VN RAND DRILL GO.

It is an unmistakable fact that there  is a generally better feeling throughout  the Boundary country, and that business men everywhere feel that the  immediate future is full of promise���  ' promise that there is every reason to  think will be fulfilled. For the last  two or three years, while mining has  been steadily progressing, it can hardly  be said thit there has been much of an  increase in business conditions, hut  now we seem to have reached the turn,  and next spring should see things decidedly improved, if the change does  not come sooner. .It is worth while to  look into the reasons for this.  - - In the first place, the largest low  grade mining proposition in the Boundary���the Granby���has proved that a  profit can be made fiom our ores, by  actually paying out $133,630 In cold  cash'as dividends, to the shareholders  who' have, at least some of them,  waited so long. That is a most significant fact oi .itself alone. It will inspire confidence in the possibilities of  this section as nothing else possibly  could.  The claws of the Russian bear are  being unsheathed, and the little brown  men of Japan will soon be in the  middle of a fracas that will make the  other powers look on in surprise.  Tapan and Russia both seem to be  itching for the fray.  Nelson Daily News deserves no  little credit for the comprehensive review of the mining industry published  in the issue of January 1st. J. F.  Deane, the publisher, is to be congratulated on his enterprise.  John Houston announces that he  will move to Edmonton after the Legislature adjourns. Mr. Houston has  been severely criticised in the past,  but it is generally acknowledged that  Nelson never had a better friend.   ,  "A million tons for 1904" is the  slogan of the Boundary in this year of  grace. There is every chance of its  being fulfilled, with the Granby mines  alone shipping three-quarters of it.  It now costs Chinamen $500 each  to land in British Columbia, but this  will not affect the population of Phoenix either way.  Last week the smelter of the Laborers' Cooperative Gold, Silver and Copper Mining Co., at Golden, started  operations for the first time.  The North Star, McKenzie & Mann's >'  East  Kootenay  silver lead mine, will  resume shipments to the Nelson srm.1-1  ter, at the rate of two cars a day.  For 1903 Slo an City mining division shipments were 6,333 tons���  considerably' smaller than for the previous year: For this year, 1904, the  outlook is much brighter, however.  M. K. Rodgers, manager of the  Nickel Plate mine, is talking of building a smelter at Hedley, if the government will give him a site on the Indian reserve'. If not he will build  aciosst hemline.  John A. Finch and A. U. Campbell  the millionaire Spokane mining operators, have bought the Buffalo group at  Poplar, from August Buffalo, the consideration being 515,000 and 100,000  shares in a company to be formed to  operate the group.  The lead refinery in coi.cction with  the Trail smelter will commence operations at an early date. The plant  has been converted from an expeii-  mental refineiy to works capable of  turning out twenty tons of the refined  product daily.' It will be the first  lead refinery to turn out pure lead in  Canada.  D. J. MATHESON,  INSURANCE AGENT,    ,  KIKE, LIKE, ACC DENT..  Coiumiixloiier for taking Affidavits.

"'���  , UtoK, MkAU.��� Rtc.Pec'y.X  - OREGON  SHOI{rLlINE  Then there are two amalgamations  afoot that mean a great deal  to  the  Boundary, and especially to  Phoenix  in particular.    We refer to the consolidation of the Snowshoe and Mother  Lode, as well as that of the Montreal  and Boston Copper Co. and the Dominion Copper Co.     Apparently   the  former is' practically concluded, and  merely   awaits   the   sanction of  the  shareholders before being carried into  practical effect.    When completed, it  means' the   employment of a larger  force at the Snowshoe than ever before,  for that property will then be able ts  . ship 500 or more tons daily, and will  not be hampered in its smelting matters.   Of the second consolidation not  much is known locally as yet, but when  it is done, and it is the logical outcome of the situation, it means another  hundred men or more added directly  to the payroll of this camp.  The outlook for a good year in  Phoenix was never brighter in the  history of this camp.  ��� WHAT EDITORS SAY ;  Will Set it Humming���Slocan  mine owners are now .protesting that  a market for zinc is all that is required  to set the camp n-humming.

He  could not have done much better if  he had lived in Poplar instead of  Rome.���Poplar Nugget.  Last, but perhaps not !ea*t, is the  railway construction of thc Great Northern into this camp. This work has  been delayed from titne to time for  the last two years or more, but there  is every reason now to expect it to go  forward next spring with a rush. It is  true that we have heard this sort of  thing time and time again, but those  best versed with, tbe conditions generally admit that the day of activity is  almost at hand, 'lhe permanent surveys have been completed and the  ' right of way purchased..  Staples Loosenin<}���The dogs of  war may not yet have broken their  chains, but it looks as if the staples  would give way soon.���Spokesman'  Review.  Down in Vancouver the World has  a writer who is evidently familiar with  the Boundary, and has the greatest  faith in the greatness of this section.  Here is what he said before the beginning of the new year:  "Taking it by camps, the greatest  progress of all has been shown in the  Uoundaty. Last year the ptoduction  was, in tound numbers, 520,000 tons.  Hy Thursday evening next, when the  year closes, the production of the  Boundary camp for 1903 will have  totalled ver) close to 700,000 tons.  "The total is almost staggering. The  statistical fiend could find a wealth of  figures to work on here. For instance,  it would take 35,000 twenty ton cars  to haul the ore produced in the Boundary last year from the mines to the  smelters. The string, including locomotives, would be nearly 450 miles  long. Imagine a train of loaded ore  cars stretching Irom Vancouver to  Golden, B. C, and you may have  some conception of the ore production  of the Boundary camp in 1903. The  banner state of Colorado:will have to  sit up and think a little, and even the  world famous Transvaal  is not  in  STRICTLY   BUSINESS  Your advertising should be continued at long as you are in business.  Necessity is the mother of invention, but advertising is the wetnurse.  Many a man fails in business as a  result of neglecting the little things���  especially in connection  with  his ad-,  vertising. j  Get the thought fixed in your mind  that if you are going at your advertising in an intelligent, thoughtful manner, your advertising will be an investment, not an expense.  The newspaper is the best and most  economical medium for local advertising. It has a reguiatity of issue,  and the good advertising is read as  carefully as the news matter.

It spells prosjierity in emy way  for every resident of the Boundary,.especially when it is coupled with additional operations by other concerns,  ihe details of which are now being  worked out. As an instance of how  it looks at a distance, we.quote from a  recent issue of the Vancouver World  on this subject;  "These amalgamations, announced  -only a few days ago, mean great  ^things for (lie Boundary country aud I  Rosstaad's 1903 Oulpat.

"But the enormous increase in ton  nage is not the greatest happening in  the Boundary camp this year. The  most important event for that camp  occurred in Montreal a few weeks ago  when the ditectois of the Granby company distributed a dividend jf $133,  630 to the stockholders. There is  nothing small or mean about a dividend like that. Ail the mines in  America that can do the same thing  may be counted oh the fingers of your  two hands.  "But tlie size of the dividend is not  its most significant feature. It is the  fact of a dividend being possible that  makes it jmuoriant. This fact proves  the possibility of making a profit from  Boundary ore. It puts to flight all  the doubters who said that the great  low grade ledges of that district were  too low to pay. .It proves that ore  bodies so large as to be measured in  miles, blocked out in acres, and estimated in millions of tons can be mined  and smelted at a profit. It proves  that British Columbia is going to have  in the very near future one of the  greatest, if not the greatest, of all mining camps in the whole world."  Croup.

"Yes," was the great shipbuilder's answer. "Well, so do I," said Mrs. McKinley. "I wish you would play a game  wJth me." "I Should be delighted te  do so," was the reply.

A lively debate has taken place In  the Senate of the Australian confederation, aa a result'of a statement of  Senator Sargood's that he had seen  women ploughing In 'South Australia.  A gentleman from that State doubted  the; assertion and hotly resented It,  but.lt.was backed up by, another senator,' Pearce." A' writer in the Sydney  "Bulletin" adds that he has often seen  women ploughing In South Australia.  "The last occasion was near Mount  Gambler. The plough-lady was wearing Wellington boots, and her husband,  a fat German gentleman, sat on a fence  near by, .complacently smoking."  The people of Galveston, Texas, are  perfecting plans to protect themselves  from another Invasion of the sea, such  as the >ne which devastated their city  over, a year. ago. These plans provide  for a sea-wall, to be built on the beach,  and to extend the whole'Angth ot the  city -limits; and for raisnV the grade  of.the entire city. It Is a mammoth  undertaking, which will cost the already Impoverished city' millions, and  Involve considerable additional outlay-  by each property-owner.

AN instance of the affection felt for  wild beasts by their tamers cited  . by "St. Nicholas" Is the case of  Madame Blanca, the .French tamer,  Who in ihe 'winter of 1900 was with the  Bostock Wild Animal Show giving  daily exhibitions in Baltimore, where  her skill and daring with lions and  tigers earned wide.admiration. It will  toe remembered how (Ire suddenly der  scended on this menagerie one night and  destroyed the animals, amid fearful  scenes. And in the morning Blanca  stood among the ruins and looked upon  the charred bodies of her pets. Had  she lost her dearest friends she could  scarcely have shown deeper grief. She  was In despair, and declared that she  would never tame another group; she  would leave the show business. And  when the menagerie was stocked afresh  with lions and tigers Blanca would not  go near their cages. These were Uons  Indeed, but not her lions, and she shook  her head and mourned for "Bowzer,"  the handsomest lioness In captivity,  and "Spitfire," and "Juliette," and the  black-man'ed '"Brutus." Nor could  money tempt her. And the outcome  was that this most successful woman  lion-tamer In tbe world retired Into private life���gave up her career simply  because of her grief for these dead animals.

Stomach Troubles  A disordered stomach may cnuse no  end of trouble. Wlion the stomach fails  to perform its functions llift bowels become deranged, the liver nnd kidneys  congested, causing numerous diseases,  1 ho most fatal of which are painless and  therefore Ihe more to be dreaded. The  important thing is to restore the stomach and liver to'a healthy condition,and  for this purpose ho better preparation  cam be iiscd than Chamberlain's 'Stom  ach and J.iver Tablets,  diuggiets.  For pale by all  OMMENTING on the statement  by a foreign correspondent  that the Czar of Russia wears  a full beard because he is  afraid to have himself shaved,  the Chicago "Record-Herald" says: "He  fears that he might get Into a Nihilist  barber's chair tome morning, and���  swick! The rest may be Imagined.  Therefore, to avoid the danger of having his throat cut by one of his loving  subjects, his Imperial Majesty Is compelled to go through life with a beard,  which he has trimmed as seldom as  possible, because he is inclined to shy  away from shears as well as from razors. It Is said that the royal whiskers  never are trimmed, save in the presence of four tried and true grand masters of the court, who stand ready to'  pounce upon the barber and eat him up  If he dares to make a suspicious move.  Moreover, in order to further Increase  the safety of his most exalted Majesty,  the office of royal barber has been  made hereditary (n, the family of Gue-  labpyskl-ra. name which In Itself might  be regarded by some people with misgivings. But the Guelabovskis are said  to be very loyal, and, of course, being  ennobled for their services as trimmers  of the imperial whiskers, it isn't likely  that they will deliberately cause trouble by using dull shears or nipping the  skin appertaining to the royal Adam's  apple. Yet the Czar mourns because  oJl his children are girls. Foolish,  short-3lghted Czar! He should consider  tine advantage they have in being members of the gentler sex. They will never  have faces to shave or whiskers to trim.  Being a man Is no snap���if one belongs  to the Russian royal family."  Dislocated Her Shoulder.
