Thursday's municipal election, in  Phoenix resulted in a sweep for Donald J. Matheson and his supporters  the entire ticketbeing elected, and the  only one of the old council who t* a*  returned being A. D. McKenzie, who  received the votes from both sides.  All day long there was a good deal of  work going on for the supporters of  Mr. Rumberger and Mr. Matheson,  respectively, and the result was in  doubt till the votes weie counted by \V.  R. Wjlliams, the returning officer, after  seven o'clock,, although both side's  claimed a victory. '..;  The chief issue was the conduct of  the police department, growing out ul  the trouble of a couple of years or  mere ago caused by Chief of I'oiice  Flood. Mr. Rumberger won out iu  that time, and Mr. Flood was, alter a  vacation, retained as chief: till ihe  present. The majority of the citizens  wished a change, and so expressed  themselves at the polls. During the  progress of the polling quite a good  deal of money was wagered on the result. The results in detail were as  follows:  FOR   MAYOR.  G. W. Rumberger.... . . . .. ......  52  D. J. Matheson    .......     ... 65  ALDERMEN (THREE) EAST WARD.  L. Y.

'        -  Large Attendance at Afternoon  Gathering.  Liberals. It was that great Conservative, Sir John A. McDonald, who gave  the right to labor to strike in 1906,  and not the Liberals, and his hearers  would find that this had been the rec  ordof the Conservative party. He referred particularly to the attitude of the  Liberal party in the great C. P. R.  trackmen's strike severai years ago,  when the Liberals allowed the railway  to!bring in men from everywhere al  most, to break the strike. The experience had been that the labor element  could not trust the Liberals.  He had been censured because he  had introduced economy when he took  hold of the government. He had re-  iduced the government force; and had  recei ved'better arid' more.-'service from  the reduced force. The province was  running behind at the rate of $750,000  per annum, not a chartered bank in  Canada would loan the government  money, and he had also tried in New  York and London.   Finally he secured  President Madden Visits Phoenix This Week.  M. F. Madden, president of the  Providence Mining Co., Ltd., was here  this week, on his way home to Chicago,  having come to the Boundary to attend a meeting of the company, at  which the increase of capital stock of  the company was authorized to $2,000,  000.  Mr. Madden is eminently satisfied  with the appearance s of tbe mine, and  is confident that the property will justfy  the increase of capital in the course of  time. It is the intention to acquire  more properties and enlarge the sphere  of the company in many ways. The  Providence dump has in the neighborhood of 300,000 tons of ore that will  run from $5 to $10 per ton, and the  erection of a concentrator is not unlikely���which would doubtless be a  profitable undertaking.  Today the Providence is in such  good shape that it has reserves blocked  out for three years in advance���that  is to say, ore could be shipped steadily  for that time with little or no more development. Few mill's of the age of  the Providence, especially in British  Columbia, can make such a showing.  It is far and a��ay liic inus-t valuable  and profitithli; mini', out of the low-  grade dabs, 111 ihe Boundaiy, and last  year paid a ten per cent dividend.  Mr. Madden is investigating carefully the proposition lor erecting a  lead-silver smelter, believing that there  is a demand for such works in the  Boundary, to handle high grade ore,  and above all, to secure all there is in  the ore. He will doubtless continue  his.investigations along this line and  be in shape to act when the time' arrives.  The shares in the Providence are  largely held in Chicago, most of the  former Boundary holders having disposed of their interests. There is no  stock on the market.  Hon. Richard McSridcf-prymier of:  the province, was a visitor in Phoenix  yesterday afternoon, accompanied by  his secretary, Mr. McRae, and Ernest  Miller, of Grand Forks, ^Conservative  candidate in this riding. Thursday  night the premier   held  a meeting   in  Grand Forks opera.house, having one  $r,000,000  at    five    per   cent,   with  $100,000 payable  each   year.    Taxes  The Pioneer learns from New York;  iriofticially that the directors of the  Hritish Columbia Copper Co. have  definitely decided to declare, sometime  this monih a. fifty-cent quarterly dividend pavable next month out of earnings of the company. As the capita!  ol the company is $2,000,000 in $5  shares, this means a return of 40 per  crnt per annum on the par value, or  approximately 16 p����r cent on the  market price of the stock, which is  now about $13 per share.  It is asserted that large Wall street  interests are now in this property,  which is beginning to attract more and  more favorable attention in the east.  [With copper at.its present hi^h figure, as soon as the British Columbia  Copper Co. is able to overcome all  power, fuel and car shortage obstacles  and place its ihree big furnaces in  blast, ali residents of the Boundary  know that it will have no difficulty in  making very substantial returns on the  investment, and the beginning of its  era of dividend paying will be wel  corned.

In order to get  in a meeting in Phoenix, the party  chartered a train on the Great Northern and arrived here about noon, the  meeting being held in Miners' Union  hall at 3 p.m. In the evening a meeting was held in Greenwood, whence  the premier went on into the Similkameen, on his way to the coast.  W. J. Bowser, who is travelling with  Mr. McBride, was so used up that he  went right on to Greenwood and. did  not stop in Phoenix, much to the regret of many friends here.  At the meeting Mayor G. W. Rumberger occupied the chair and introduced the speakers, the first of which  was Mr. Miller. Mr. Miller made a  short talk, and left the main issues of  the campaign to the premier, who was  to follow, Mr. Miller saying that he  would address Uie electors of Phoenix  later. He told them just where he  stood on the labor question and on  the eight-hour question. He had  been a laboring man himself and at  present has two bro'hers laboring in a  smelter. When he went to Victoria  the labor people could depend upon  his doing exactly right by I hem.  Premier's  Splendid Talk.  Hon. Richard McBride w.is t!:en  introduced, and while he was pretty  well used up by speechmaking for the  last two weeks, he gave a talk of about  an hour that was well received by the  audience and was a pleasure to listen  to, touching upon the salient points of  the campaign as rapidly as possible.  The premier was glad to see so large  an audience at the afternoon hour, the  only hour thai he could arrange to be  in Phoenix this time, with a number of  ladies pre.sent. All the way up from  the coast he had seen such evidences  as impressed him (irmly that the government would be returned with a  handsome majority on the 2nd of February. The Liberal press had made  him out a monster of the deepest dyed  hue, but he was there to tell them the  true story of his government, of which  he was not ashamed  Referring to labor matters, the premier said that he had always had the  greatest sympathy with the laboring  man, and his record in this province,  of which he is a native son, would be'  the best evidence of it. When the  first eight-hour bill had come up in the  legislature, he had supported it, and  the records of the house would show-  that this had oeen his consistent course  ever since that time, some years ago.  He could not  say  as  much  for  the  had been raised���they had to be increased, as expenses of government  had to be met. The lumbermen were  asked to pay more taxes and none  of them had gone out oi business  The railways now pay $90 per mile  against $iS formerly. His securing a  special train from the C. P. R. in East  Kootenay to keep dates had caused  the Liberal press to say he was a tool  of the C. P. R. He had paid $263  (or that train, and now today that he  had come from Grand Forks to Phoenix on a special Great Northern train,  they would probably say he was also a  tool of the G. N.  In every by-election, since he took  hold of the government his candidates  had been returned with handsome majorities, which he believed was an evidence of what was thought of the government by the people.  Briefly as possible Mr. McBride took  up the School Act which had been criticised by the opposition, and justified  it comple'ely. It was modeled after  that of Ontario and New Brunswick,  with this difference, that in the latter  province the people directly paid $5 to  schools to every dollar that the prov-  ince paid, and in Briiish Columbia the  province paid the $5  the dollar. A large  island was shown and the deal with  ihe Giand Trunk Pacific explained, the  Toronto Globe, the stalwart of Liberalism, quoted in approval of his deal in  that connection. He said that he dealt  directly with the G. T. P. in the matter. Mining and agriculture were also  taken up and the course of the premier  explained to the satisfaction of the  'audience, as well as the much mooted  Columbia & Western land grant���in  which he merely carried out a bargain  made by a previous legislature, of  which F. J. Deane, of the Nelson  Daily News, one of his severest critics,  was a member.  Following his address, the premier  met a number of his old friends here  of all political beliefs, including a committee of the Phoenix Conservative  Association. About five o'clock the  party left for Greenwood.  After   Partially   Closing    for  Five .Days.  Thursday morning the Grauby mines  resumed work again, after being parti-  ally closed for five days, due to. the  coal shortage- by;th^taiiawt&jrTt&  smelter: was closedidowri-for^the: ssraie  length of time; but was blown in again  on Thursday also, at. abosrt halfrthe.J.  normal - capacity, i. ..JJBnnff* 'the^wieet  about a thousand tons or-Toke-were  delivered 'by the C.P.R. and some by  the Great Northern, but'when more  will arrive is not known.  A. B. VV. Hodges, the local manager,  arrived here yesterday afternoon, and  stated that he hoped to be able to keep  at least four furnaces in blast, but the  coke outlook was none too bright as yet,  though the railways are doing all that  they can. During the closing at the  mines, but 40 or 50 men were kept  busy including, pumpmen engineers,  machinists, etc.  The car and coke shortage is also  affecting the other smelters, but one  furnace being operated at the B.C.  Copper Co. smelter, and also one at  the Dominion smelter.  Official figures of the output of the  Granby mines for the year 1906 are  now available, and show tthat Boundary's largest producer sent put from its  Phoenix mines Soi',^04 tons of on*  during the last calendar year. This is  an increase of about 22 per cent over  the year 1905, when the output was  653,889 tons, and over, J|x> ^per cent  over 1904 when the tonhagfe^was 549,-  703.

The" difference in smelting  and, shipping figures is largely due to  the fact that some custom ores are  received.

With a |b_Verii5**l*ent "ii: Victoria  province, and take a chance with the  electorate, they will find it needful to  lose no time, for this is the last day of  grace. As there are now candidates  running on eight or ten different platforms���if some of them have any  platform���a few more would do no  harm, but possibly add a little gaity  to the battle of the ballots on election  day.  A perusal of the list of candidates  shows that there are straight Conservatives and straignt Liberals in almost  every riding. Then, there are straight  Socialists in a dozen or fifteen ridings,  or more. Then, there are the members of the Canadian Labor party, who  will have none of the Socialists. Besides these, there are the straight Independents, the Independent Laborites,  the Labor Liberals and Liberal-Labor-  ltes.   .There are also   Socialist-Labor-  1  ltes", among the others, to. afford still  further variety and tp confuse the aver  a{e voter in the ndgings where  ���they happen to be on the  ticket.

J' "*     \ ��� 1 "���"������.'}  After election, there, will; be some  JJ5200 deposits that will be forfeited, or  we'are much mistaken, for it is scarce  lyl conceivable that the candidates of  every tad and fancy who can get names  on the ballots, will ,he able to get votes  enough��to save the deposits.  The Liberals are constantly harping  on the Kaien island deal of the Mo  Bride government. Here is a pointer:  The Toronto Globe, that stalwart of  Liberalism that is like a Bible to thousands of Grits all over Canada, endorsed the deal as one of the best that  could have been made, and commended the McBride government for making it.   Who carries the Grand Trunk Pacific sack for the Grits this year has  not been divulged. But the average  voter, who is no fool, is aware that the  manager of the G. T. P. is not getting ready to build across British Columbia for his health. His one unsuccessful attempt to holdup the province is ample evidence of what to  expect in the .unlikely contingency of  the Liberals winning the election.  If the Liberals are straightforward,  why do they not pledge themselves, in  case of election, not to grant a bonus  to the Grand Trunk Pacific or any  other railway ? It will be noticed that  no such pledges are being made by  Grit orators: and if they were made,  is there any reason to think they would  be kept any better than the pledges  made by them in the last Dominion  election ? None whatever, and the  aveiage voter knows it full well.  In case any one in Phoenix has not  heard of it, we might mention that  there was a municipal election this  week in this city, and that night it  snowed. It is the popular belief that  D. J. Matheson will make a good  mayor, and with a strong council to  back him, Phoenix should continue to  advance. The result of the .election  was not a surprise to those who had  come to the conclusion that it was  time for a change in the conduct of  municipal affahs,  TT-TE   PHOENIX    PTONEF.l?

And he added that he "ought not  to be allowed even in the cau  cus of the party." This appeared  in;an interview in the Rossland Miner.  What adds to its present interest is the  fact that Mr. Curtis is the Liberal candidate in the Similkameen.

As recently as 188S, says the Copper Handbook, the 1906 edition of  which has just been issued by Horace  J. Stevens, of Houghton, Mich., the  value or copper produced by the mines  of the United States was only $33,-  833,954i and for 1904, only two years  ago, was but $105,629,845, the year  1904 being the second in the history  of the country in which the value of  the copper output exceeded one hundred million dollars, yet, at the present  moment, the copper mines of the  United States are produciag copper to  the value of two hundred million dollars yearly, and the Lake Superior copper mines alone are making copper  worth $150,000 for. every day in the  year, or at the rate of more than a  million dollars weekly. So great has  been the growth of this industry, and  so rapid trie increase in price of the  metal, that the production of1 three  counties of the single state of Michigan is as grea! as the entire copper  production of the United States as recently as 1897���only nine years ago���  and double the value of ihe entire  copper output of the United States in  a year as comparatively recent as 1889.  Figuring copper at an average price  throughout the globe, of 20^ cents  per pound, which is 11 trifle below the  average qnotations, the mines of the  world are making copper at the rate of  exactly a million dollars per day, for  every day in the year, including Sundays and holidays.  Compared with copper, ihe value of  the gold and silver production of the  United States is as a minor fraction,'  great as is the output of the precious  metals, and rapid as has been the increase in production of the money  metals by the mines of America..... An-.,  other fact of deep interest is lound in  the surprisinly large percentage of the  gold and'silver output of the country  comes, as a by-product, from the copper mines. The .vast and rapidly increasing value of the copper output of  the United States, which makes more  than half of the copper produced in  the world, is a most significant development.  MADE  MONEY IN B. C. MINES.  Scores  of Spokane People Have Taken Out  Fortunes.  The Spokane Spokesman-Review  recently contained the following interesting story:  A few days ago a number of mining  men'were assembled in an office in  this city discussing various topics relating to the mining industry and ils  benefits to Spokane, when the subject  of British Columbia mines came up.  I. A. Jarnagin,' who has kept in  touch with {conditions said: "I have  a list of 125 names of men who claimed Spokane as their home, that made  fortunes in that country, from $25,-  900 up.   ,  "This only covered the period between 1894 and 1902, the amounts  that have been made since then I have  no account of.  "The districts from which this  wealth was taken included cast Kootenay, the Slocan, Ymir, Camp McK:n-  ney and possibly one or two others,  but there is not a name on the list  from the Boundary country. Had I a  list of the men>who hnve made strikes  in that section, they would increase  the number very materially."

He talks about what he will do  if elected. He had an opportunity.  Why didn't he do it last year.?���Rossland Miner. ��� _  Some Predictions.  A fglance over the political field  gives the following possible Conservative gains, in well-informed circles.  The opposition leader will lose, his seat  in Rossland, Harvey will carry Cranbrook, Warren is booked to win in  Greenwood, Wilson will redeem one  seat in Cariboo, McPhillips the Islands, and Eberts Saanich; while Victoria appears to be anxious to remedy  the blunder made in 1903. Wells'  seat is none too safe in Columbia, and  the same applies to Oliver of Delta.  Of the losses this is left to the side.  We admit two in Vancouver, but they  will raise a dozen more. Anyhow, it  is a safe bet McBride will have a safe  majority ovet all, and the good work  commenced will continue. ��� Nelson  Canadian.  Liberals Resent  It.  The better elements of the Liberal  party bitterly resent the foisting upon  them by the federal authorities of a  political adventurer of the type of W.  W. B. Mclnnes. In 1903, Mr. Smith  Curtis, at a public meeting in Rossland, after paying a tribute to the McBride government, as 'representing  the best elements of Conservatism in  public life," stated that the Liberals  must bring out better men. "The first  step was to repudiate men like Mclnnes and Martin. It would be a  calamity for the province to be governed by such men as Martin and Billy  Mclnnes.���Vernon News.

Befo'e we can sympathize with  others, we must have suffered ourselves^ No one can realize the suffering attendant upon an attack of the  giip, unless he has had the actual experience.

An Astounding Threat.  According to a Vancouver dispatch  Mr. Mclnnes stated at a public meeting there that British Columbia would  never get better terms until a Liberal  government was put into office. And  this is from the chief fighting man in  the party which deprecated th'* introduction of "Better Terms" into the  present political campaign. But Mr.  Mclnnes' statement is even more significant than this implies. He has  lately come from Ottawa. He has just  resigned a lucrative office to engage in  the election. He comes with a threat.  He has ventured to tell the people of  British Columbia that the price of  "Better Terms" is the supremacy of  Liberals in local politics. This is  more than we had expected. It introduces a new element into the campaign. The fight is no longer simply for  the return to power of the present  government, but a protest against Ottawa domination. The issue is : Shall  British Columbia be coerced ?���Victoria Colonist.  Cut this out and take it to any drug  store and get a free sample of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablet;,.

Manager Martin, of the water and  light company, has been having his  troubles with the water system this  week, owing to extreme cold weather.

Wellesley Whittaker,  Charles L. Thornber, John McRea,  and John B. Boyle, being present, and  Mr. Boyle was made chairman of- the  convention.  The only name presented for nomi  nation to the convention was that of  Herbert W. Gregory, of Grand Forks,  and the nomination was made unanimous. Mr. Gregory declined "to run  on a straight Liberal ticket, but accepted the honor as a Labor-Liberal. He  is an electrician, employed at the  Granby smelter, where he has been for  several years, and is very "well spoken  of by those who know him best. He  intends to spend several days in Phoenix getting acquainted with the electors in this vicinity.  G.N. TRAIN WRECKED  ON C.P.R. TRACK  SOCIALISTS HOLD  '    A BIG MEETING  Peculiar   Accident    and    No  One Injured.  A most peculiar wreck, fortunately  without serious consequences, occurred  to the Great Northern Phoenix passenger train Monday evening on its way  up from Grand Forks, and the odd  part of it is that the wreck did not oc  cur on the Great Northern track at all,  but on the C.P.R. rails. - -   -  - Being somewhat late, the train was  running at a lively clip near Oro Den-  oio, where a recently built spur connects the two 'railway lines. As it  happened, the switch was open and  the Jim Hill train ran onto the  switch, passed two or three other  switches, passed the Emma mine,  where luckily there were no ore cars  on that track at the time, and on up  the C.P.R. grade to B.C. Junction, and  on to ihe main Phoenix-Eholt line.  Here the engine and train of two  coaches ran off the track, though no  one was hurt. Thus a Great Northern  train was wrecked on the C.P.R. track,  completely blocking traffic on the  C.P.R. line for the time being.  Supt. J. S. Lawrence, of the Koot-  enay-Boundary division of the C.P.R.,  happened to be in Phoenix at the  time, and ordered! his Eholt crew to  clear away the wrack. This was done  and the Great Northern engine and  train taken to the C.P.R. shops at  Eholt. The damage was not serious,  and the train arrived in Phoenix about  noon the next day over the Great Northern tracks, as usual.  P. H. Burnham, of Grand Forks,  district freight and passenger agent of  the Great Northern, was on the train.  CUT GLASS  FOR    ALL  OCCASIONS  Mclnnis, Miller, Simpson and  Wilson Spoke.  Last evening the Socialists held their  first rally here of the campaign, and  the opera house was well filled. Chas.  C. Halsey occupied the chair, and introduced John Mclnnis, the Socialist  candidate for this riding.  Mr. Mclnnis spoke for half an houi,  and leferred briefly to ihe bills introduced by James H. Hawthornihwuiie  in ihe legislature for the benefit  of  labor, showing what could be done there  by sending a Socialist to Victoria.   He  also referred   to   the   methods  of the  Liberals in bringing out H. W. Gregory  in Grand Forks on the so-called Labor-  Liberal platform, saying that there was  not a single accredited member of any  labor organization   in   the  convention  that   nominated   the  Grit   candidate.  Duncan Ross was not forgotten for his  success in stirring up ihe  Liberals in  this riding to putting up a candidate  Again snowing  the   insincerity of the  Liberals in' their professed   attitude of  friendliness towards labor, Mr. Mclnnis  mentioned a bill now before parliament  at  Ottawa, by which it is to be  made  a felony to interfere in   any   way   be  (ween employer and employee in case  of strikes, etc.    This   bill, introduced  and supporied by Libeiuls, was to have  had   its   second   reading  on the 16th  instant.  Ernest Miller, theCon-.erv.uive can  didate, was the next speaker, and devoted most of hi*, time to .showing ilu-  strong financial policy of ihe pru.ieiu  provincial government; how, when it  came into power, the province was  practically bankrupt, and gelling worse  at the rate ol $750,000 per annum,  with no cred't with any of the large  banks of the country; how ihe McBride government had been able,  through wise legislation and economical government, to show a surplus each  year since they came into power. Mr.  Miller also treated of the Kaien island  deal, of which so much has been written and said or. the platfo-m, and justified it from any reasonable standpoint  Following Mi. Miller, Fred E. Simpson, Liberal    organizer    for   the   interior, was introduced.    Mr. Simpson, I  who is owner and editor of  the Cran-  brook Herald, one of the best weeklies |  in   the  province,   proceeded   to   tear |  down what Mr. Miller   had   said, and I  did not think it a credit to the govern-1  ment to have a surplus���forgetting all j  about the  gigantic surplus of the Liberal government at Ottawa.      He told  of  the great needs of the province in  the way of public works, and how his  own riding received only $12,000 this  last year, although it had   paid   $150,-  000 in taxes.  - * Mr. Simpson said he did not intend  to make speeches, as he was no talker,  but his earnestness and sincerity cap  tivated his hearers, even though many  of them did not agree with his statements.  The last speaker.of the evening was  Benjamin F. Wilson, a native of Ontario, though now living, for thev present, in California. Mr. Wilson is no  stranger in Phoenix, having been h..re  twice before, and is an orator of no  mean attainments. He spoke for  about an hour, rapidly going over what  he called the principles of Socialism,  and showing the line of demarcation  between Socialism and Individualism.  He tried to convince his hearers that  the betterment of the present day conditions among workingmen could best  be accomplished through Socialism,  illustrating his points with amusing  anecdotes occasionally. It was evident,  that the majority of the audience was |  in full sympathy with the speaker. j  " WATCHES  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  fa  ���  fa  fa  fa  We have a larger assortment than ever in  nil grades in sucfi well known makes as,  Waltham Elgin  Rockford Illinois  and Omega  with   casts to suit in Jjki. gold, gold filed  and  nickel,  every one absolutely guaranteed.

About midnight last night a train of  eleven loaded Great Northern pre cars  got away at the Granby ore bins, the  brakes failing to work avter the train  started. The train rushed down the  switchback, about a mile, to the end  of the tracky-nhere there is a bank.  Here the engine started to climb a  tree, the cars remaining on the rails.  The crew jumped where they found  soft spots, and saved themselves. To  day efforts are being made' to induce  the locomotive to retire from.its elevated position.  Last.might also���: the C P.
