SATURDAY, JANUARY  16,  1909  No. 8  RUMBERGER IS  MAYOR FOR 1909  Recei ved 36 Majority  over D* ]. Matheson  Four of Six Aldermen Elected  on Rumberger Ticket.  Boundary Mining Notes  Phoenix has had se\ eral keenly contested municipal election campaigns,  but none have been more actively conducted than that which was brought to  a close on Thursday evening, electing  George VV. Rumberger mayor by a  majority of 36 votes over D. J. Matheson. Workers on both sides were busy  all day, teams were on hand to bring  voters to the polls, and many voters  came from a distance.  The chief interest centered in the  mayoiality contest, MV. Rumberger  having previously served as mayor from  1901 to 1906, but was defeated in the  1907 and 1908 contests by Mr. Matheson. It was generally expected that  there would be a close finish, and Mr.  Rumberger's majority of 36 is not only  None of the Boundary copper com  panies have any   part  in   the  copper  com bine,being formed in New York.  About 240 men are now working  regularly at the B. C. Copper com  panies Mother Lode mine. In the  summer months a great deal of the  ore tonnage is secured frcm glory hole,  but-in winter all the ore is mined from  the interior stopps and requires a larger  force to keep up the requirements of  of the smelters.,  E. Jacobs, secretary, has sent the  following notice to members of the  Western Branch of the Canadian Mining Institute : Owing to serious dim"  culties with plant and machinery, the  result of freezing' of water at mines and  smelters, following enforced temporary  suspension of operations, caused by  stoppage of electric power during extreme cold weather, so few Boundary  members would be free to attend  meeting if held Thursday, 14th inst.,  as previously intended, that local members have strongly urged postponment  until Monday, 25th inst, which course,  appearing necessary under exceptional  circumstances, has been decided upon.  You are accordingly hereby notified of  this unavoidable change of date."  INSTALLATION OF   >  K.P.

The end men  have a bunch of hew jokes, never be  fore heard either in Phoenix or Greenwood, the specialties in the olio have  been strengthened by the addition of  a number which will Be a surprise.  The proceeds of the performance will  be used to buy an artificial limb for J.  B. Carrigan, the popular left fielder on  the Greenwood ball team last summer.  Any one going to Greenwood on the  20th from Phoenix will see a performance which! will repay them for their  trip���besides helping a good cause.

The hockey match last night be  tween Grand Forks and Phoenix teams  on the local ice resulted in a " win for  the visitors by a score of four goals to  five.      .  The game was fast from the start-off.  Phoenix got first blood, both teams  played hard and checked .closely," and  when half .time-was,up the score was a  tie^-two "all.  i The momentum of excitement in the  second half increased as the game  continued, Phoenix leading in the  scoring. The visitors, however, never  let up and when time was called, the  score was again a tie���4 all.  In an extra five minutes of play,  neither team scored, but in the second  extra five minutes allowed to decide  the game, Grand Forks found the  net and won the game.  This ties Grand Forks and Phoenix  teams for the Boundary league championship, and should stimulate interest  in future games.  The visitors were a gentlemanly  septette of hockeyists, they played the  game, and there was little roughness,  James Pierce giving general satisfaction as umpire.

A l3-e«t Avtr«|t Whloh Compares *lth 20
Cants In Pmrjou* Yoir
In 1907 the average price of electrolytic copper was a trifle over 20 cents
per pound. For the 12 months of
1908 the average was only slightly
better than 13 cents per pound. Thir-
teen cents is a low average for copper,
as viewed by the returns of recent
years, and is destined to make rather
disappointing the annual exhibits of the
copper mining companies for the 12
months just ended.
The lower price for copper during
the past 12 months has had partial
compensation in a, material saving in
the operating costs, and it is probably
not extravagant to make the claim that
the average cost of producing copper
m this country in 1908 was  fully one

A city of twenty-five thousand people
in five years and a copper camp that
will rival the greatest.in the world are
the predictions of W. E. Young, the
well-known New York mining man who
is in Kamloops today, says the Kamloops Standard.
Mr- Young has bonded a number
of local properties for a big American
syndicate including the Guggenheims
and Simon Newhouse. He has renewed
these options with the privilege of
paying for the first and second installments in one lump sum.
"Yi,u must not become discouraged

j because it takes me longer to complete
this deal than you anticipated.    It isa
big proposition and  requires   lots  of
time and   capital."   These were  his
' reassuring words.
"I have implicit faith in the future
of this camp.    The only  thing ;;that
could stay its progress would be,the
worthlessness of copper, and that is
impossible.    This  is  an  ideal  camp
and you have all the facilities necessary
to make u great.'*

Coal Backet Fell On Him
Wirk*ar«0,we» HI* RaatajitloB to Zim-Bsk
Mr. Daniel Goddard. of Bay Street,
Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., says:—While
employed superintending the unloading
of a coal vessel at Cohen's Coal Dock,
a heavy coal bucket' in descending into
the >vessel to be refilled suddenly overturned, grazing my left leg and scraping
the;flesh off to the • bone. I was compelled: to\\discontinue!..work..and go
home for treatment,, where I was cbn-
firied for about two months.
;!"When able to get out, again I got
cold in the wound, inflammation
started, the wound opened again, and
for another month -I .was unable 'to
move about. I tried .all manner ,of
things to get ease andjget the-wound
tp'heal up, but.nothing seemed able to
do it. Not only.did everything! tried
seem .useless so far as-healing went, but
I could get no ease from the aching
and.the burning pains. At times I
was just about crazy with the intense
throbbing pains, and night after night
got no> sleep, whatever.
Not until ray wife began applying
Zam-Buk did I "find relief. When
applied;to;the injured; member -this
balm quickly soothed the pain, and as
we continued using it each day brought
an improvement. The throbbing pains
were soon banished, tne inflammation
and soreness relieved, arid the wound
thoroughly cleansed of all poisonous
and unhealthy matter.
"Healing then began, and in a
wonderfully short time—considering
the seriousness of the wound—Zam-
Buk effected a complete and lasting
cure. I have since, had no trouble
with the limb at all, and it is as sound
and strong as before the injury."
Zam-Buk is a sure cure for cuts,
lacerations, burns, eczema, ring-worm,
cold-sores, chapped hands, poisoned
wounds, festering sores, bad leg, and
and all skin injuries and .diseases. It
is also a cure for piles. Druggists and
stores everywhere sell at 50c. a box,
or post free from Zam-Buk Co., Toronto, on receipt of price. You are
warned against harmful imitations
sometimes represented as "just as good
and cheaper."

Each of the chief organs of the body is a
(link i_ tbe Chain oi
Life. A chain is no
stronger than its:
weakest link, the body
no stronger than its
weakest organ. If there is weakness of stomach, liver or lungs, there is a
; weak link in the chain of life which may snap at any time. Often this so-called
; " weakness " is censed by lack of nutrition, the result of weakness or disease-
: of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. Diseases and
: weaknesses, of the.stomach and its allied organs are cured by the use of Dr.
