A year or two ago J. P. Graves,  manager of the Granby Co., who lives  in Spokane, with his associates established tbe Spokane Traction Co., and  operated a system of electric street  railways in that city, being also interested in the suburban Coeur d'Alene  electric line, 25 miles long, to Lake  Coeur d'Alene. From the start the  lines have been on a paying basis.  Now another and more ambitious  plan is the building of an electric line  from Spokane down to and through the  heart of the famous Palous farming  district. The project is being launched  aud js being warmly supported not  only by those along the [imposed line,  but by the largest business concerns ot  Spokane itself.  In addition to this the Graves interests have acquired a power site nine  miles above Spokane on the Spokane  river, and will put in a power plant  worth $600,000, to furnish 15,000  horse power, lor his electric lines, eic  All this is in direct competition with,  the Washington Water Power Co.,  owning and operating the Spokane  street railway system of many miles,  and controlling the famous power of  the Spokane river in the city of Spokane, and being itself one of ihe most  powerful corporation.'- in the slate of  Washington.  Boundary Mining Notes  Carried Away at Tender Age.  Glendower Bateman, the five year  old son of James and Mrs. Bateman,  passed away on Tuesday afternoon at  the family residence on Brooklyn  avenue,. being afflicted with spinal  meningitis. He had been ill about  two weekt. The funeral was held  Thursday afternoon, Rev. I).; M.  Perley officiating, the burial taking  place in the Phoenix cemetery. The  family anived here only about fou,  months ago from South Wales, England, the father being employed in the  Granby mines. Much sympathy is  expressed for them in their bereavement.  When we foe a precious blossom,  That we 'tended with nueli wire,  Rudely taken from mir bosom,  How our arhhiK hearts despair.  Around his little grave we linger  Till the eettinu eun is low,  Feeling all our hopes have perished  With the flower we cheriahed do.  About 100 men are now employed  'at the Mother Lode mine.  Some diamond drilling is deing done  on the Monarch claim in this camp.  A strike of 15 inches of ore was  made in the shaft of the Canadian this  week.  At the'last report Granby shares  were quoted on the Boston stock ex  change at $5.50.  The Betts and Hesperus new machinery was expected to be in full running order this week.  Those in the know assert that the  Prcvidence mine is looking better today than ever in its history.  The Last Chance, since resuming  operations, has sent out about 100  tons of ore; and, is shipping regularly.  The force awthe Bay claim, on which  such phenomenal strikes of free gold  have been made, was increased this  week.  Work is being prosecuted on the  Silver Cloud once more, in Skylark  camp. The shipment of ore made  gave $120 per ton.  List week the Sally mine, West  Fork, shipped a car of ore to the Trail  smelter, being hauled in sleighs to the  railway terminus at Midway-  Marry Shallenberger, who is interested largely in the Crescent, in Skylark camp, thinks work will be resumed  on the property before spring and a  plant installed.  A contract is to be let for a tunnel  on the Gold Bug, which was recently  incorporated by Phoenix and Greenwood people. A ��� large number are  figuring on the contract.  Work has been completed on the  100 foot winze from the 300 to the 400  loot level of the Old Ironsides mine,  but owing to shortage of power no  further work is being done there at  present.  Last week Friday the sum of $20,000  was paid to the old owners ofthe  Athelstan-Jackpot mines by the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, making  about $40,000 paid thus far, with  $5o,opo.yet to come.  The bonding of the Golden Eagle  mine, North Fork, was authorized last  week by the owners, the Royal Victoria  Gold Mining Co., Ltd., which held a  meeting at Greenwood for that purpose. The owners are Spokane people.  The Meadow I-ark, adjoining the  Skylark, was bonded last week to  George R. Naden and f. J. Caulfield,  of Greenwood, by J". McNicol, W. G.  McMynn and N. J. LaPlante, the latter  of Marcus.    It is supposed to have the  A meeting of those interested in the  Skylaik local syndicate was held  here  on Wednesday when the organization  ofthe new  company was  perfected,  ihe mine turned over  to  the corporation, officers elected for the first year  and plans for developing  the Skylark  mine was formulated.   The company  has a capita! of $250,000 in one dollar  sharec.      The   first   list   of  officers  chosen was: President, A. B. W. Hodges; vice-president,   R.   B.   Boucher;  secretarv-treasuier,   A. B. Hood; general manager, 0. 13. Smith, Jr., all of  whom are residents of Phoenix.    rl he  directors   consist   of   the above and  Charles I). Hunter, W. S.  Macy, and  H. A.  Wright.    David   Whiteside is  solicitor for the company, the corporate title ol which is the Skylark Development Co.,' Ltd. ,  In the treasury ha%'e been placed  124,000 shares, of which the company-  will dispose now only 12,000, and  these have practically been subscribed  for already, at 50 cents each.  ��� Thus far the syndicate has been  able to meet all expenses, including  the payment on the bond, and have a  comfortable balance, and the mine  looks belter today than when it was  taken hold of, some three months sincei  It is the intention to erect another  bunk-bouse at once, and put in a  small hoist at the winze, employing  about 20 men in two shifts. 'Phis will  probably be done about February 1st,  or as soon as the building can be put  up.  Returns were received this week  from the fourth car of ore shipped  from the Skylafk, which went out last  week to the Granby smelter. It was  third-class ore, and yielded for the  18^2 tons, 43 ounces in silver and .35  ounce gold, or a total of $32.80 per  ton. Another car of high grade ore  is now ready and will be sent to the  Nelson smelter nezt week.  After the meeting on Wednesday  afternoon the officers of the company  were entertained at an impromptu  banquet at the Hotel Balmoral.  Dewar  McDonald  Turner  McNicol,  Curling Result For Week.

The amount  of the bond is supposed to be in the  neighborhood of $io,ooo,  Ronald C. Campbell-Johnson, M.E.,  of Greenwood, contributed an interesting article on mining in the Boundary  to the last number ot" the B. C. Mining  Exchange. He clai ms that copper ores  are being mined and smelted here at a  lower rate than elsewhere. Underground mining, Mr. Campbell-Johnson  declares, has been reduced in the  Boundary to 96 cents per ton, or fifty  per cent of the cost of open  "lory hole work  Just one thine is now delaying the  operation of Great Northern passenger  trains over the new extension to Phoenix, and that is the non-receipt of  the  official  permission ;'��� from   the government at.Ottawa.   This is expected any  day, the road   having  been  inspected  by Wm. McCarthy, ofthe railway  department, some two weeks ago.    Consequently no passenger trains  can  be  operated till the permission is granted.  '','��� Supt. Morgan of the new line, came  up in his private car   last Wednesday,  and inspected the work done at this  end, running his car   also   up  on the  No. 3 tunnel spur to the Granby mines.  The ballasting is completed,  and the  combined passenger and freight depot  is also  finished.    Mr. Morgan  stated  that passenger, trains   would   probably  commence running to Phoenix on   the  1st of F'ebruary, when a new.schedule  would also be put  into effect all  the  the way  to  Spokane,   shortening  the  time considerably between   that  place  and Phoenix.  'Trains'will leave here about 9.30  a, m., and arrive here on the return  trip about 5 p.m. They will also  leave Spokane a little later than at  present, and arrive a little earlier.  Evidently, the Great Northern is intending to make a strong bid for the  traffic from this section. The fare  from Phoenix to Spokane will be about  $6.00.  Regarding the special excursion  faom this city to Spokane, it was hoped  to have it take effect next week, but  that is not possible, for the reason  stated. Probably it may be arranged  forthe 15th of February, or thereabouts,  when the rate will be one fare for the  round trip. It is expected that from  100 to 200 from Phoenix, Greenwood  and Grand Forks will take advantage  of the occasion. Mayor Rumberger is  looking after the matter at this end.  Granby  Works   are  Affected.  Chiefly  A. AVilley, of the   power  force  at  Cascade, was in the city Wednesday.  Early last week the se.trecold froze  up the little streams, lowered the water in the Kettle river, and compelled  the Cascade power people to cut off  one of their three double wheels, which'  in turn affected adveisely the mining  and smelting o[>eraiions -at Boundary's  largest mines and smelters. For seven  days now,.however,.the situation has  been gradually improving because . the  weather has been soft, Kettle river has  been rising, more power was available,  and the shortage, therefore, was, not  quite so acute.  When the shortage came, two furnaces at the Granby smelter were  blown but, the converter was only operated one shift, and one of the large  air compressors at the mines here could  beopperated. This week the improvement allows the Granby smelter to operate the converter full time, and Supt.  Hodges hopes to get another furnace  in operation���making five in blast.  .  The B.C. Copper smelter at Greenwood was also troubled with shortage  of electric power as it comes from the  same source.  Soft weather at this season has been  practically unknown heretofore in the  Boundary, but its arrival this season,  when there hais been no rain to speak  of for months, is indeed welcome, to. ���<  those dependent on the Cascade power  to operate mines and smelters, to say  nothing of helping, to at least some  extent, the general supply for domestic  and other purposes.  Mr. Hodges , thinks he can tide  along till the end of February with the  assistance of the two steam air compressors held in reserve here, after,  which date the water in Kettle river is  expected to begtn to rise steadily, and  remain so for months.

J. Frank Fouche, dramatic artist, of  Chicago, gave an entertainment for the  benefit of the public school library  fund at the Presbyterian church last  evening, as the Pioneer was being  printed.  Michael Kelly, a well known conductor on the Great Northern, was  killed by a work train last week Friday,  and last Sunday William Reeves, a  brakeman on the same line was killed  near Denoro, while trying to climb  from a fiat car to an engine. A verdict  of accidental death was returned by  the coroner's jury. Kelly's remains  were shipped to his home at Aldridge,  Minn.  This week Mclntyre & McDonald,  proprietors of the Palace livery stable,  closed a deal with A. F. McMillan,  by which they purchased the lot adjoining their present stable on Knob  Hill avenue on the west. The price  of the sale is not give;* out, but the  firm intends to shortly begin the erection of a new stable on the property,  and probably for the time being occupy both stables. The new stable will  be two stories in size, and will probably cover the entire lot, 30 x 100 feet,  running through to Aetna avenue.  Latest Prices in Metals.

There'appears to be every reason to  believe that the operations ofthe Montreal. & Boston Consolidated Mining  and Smelting C, Ltd., have thus far  been 'attended with al large degree of  success. From the outset there has  been'the usual number of delays in  getting'the several properties ofthe  company in a shape to make a steady  output 'of ��� ore, but most of the delays  are now over, and several of the mines  are now, and have been for some  months, shipping daily to the company's smelter at-Boundary Falls. It  is also a well- known fact that, from  the point of ore reserves, there is a tonnage - now ready for sloping and shij>-  ment that will last the.smelter, even  when three furnaces are in blast, for  many years to come.  No less, gratifying is it to learn, even  though unofficially, that, trom a metallurgical standpoint, the combination  of the ores from the .several properties  is an ideal one, and that the results  have come up to every expectation, if  indeed, they have not been better than  anticipated. With one furnace, roughly speaking, ore worth in the neighborhood of about $50,000 per month, was  reduced, all of which came from the  company's own mines���a record that  is certainly highly creditable. With  two furnaces in blast from now on the  results should be approximately doubled���and with the third, now being  set up, they should be trebled.  The financial end of the company  has, apparently, been well cared for in  New York, as payments on the various bonds of the company have been  met, only last week the sum of $20,-  000 having been paid on the Athelstan bond, or $50,000 on that bond  altogether, to say nothing of the payments on the Brooklyn group purchase price���the most important group  of the combination, and which is the  key*-to the situation.  It thus appears that the whole matter has been well handled so far, and  bids fair to become one of the important  permanent industrial enterprises  of the Boundary country.    In the east  some of those holding shares seem to  have gotten into financial trouble, but  the status of the company, we are informed, is not affected in the least  Dy that fact.   There were some sleep?  tics a few months ago regarding the  success of the company, but they are  much harder to find today than they  were then,   Steady work at the mines  and smelters, together with  businesslike management, have put the company in a favorable position in this  section, and it seems very evident that  the company has a good tiling and has  the means to carry it along to a successful issue���the profit paying point.  At recent sittings of the commission  appointed by the government to inquire into the workings of the assessment act, some mine ownsrs were  thoughtful enough to state that they  were much pleased witli the preseni  two per cent tax on mineral output ot  the province. It may be stated at  once, however, that the gentlemen referred to are not interested in low  grade mines, but in Slooan mines���  thc Slocan Star, for instance���mines  that do not feel the incidence of the  unjust two per cent tax. There can be  no doubt, whatever, in the mind of any  fair minded person, that were the shoe  on the other foot, those same gentlemen would be among thc first to protest against the workings of the mineral  tax. They would not fancy paying  taxes on their wages and mining supplies, timber, etc., if those charges  amounted to a large portion of the  value of their ore product���not a bit  of it.  However, it appears that their uncalled for endorsment of the two  per cent tax was entirely gratuitous,  and its consideration was outside of  the scope ofthe commission. Possibly  they thought if mineral taxation were  rearranged, it might bear a little  more heavily on the high grade mines  of the province, and so were attempting  with little success, it seems, to cast an  anchor to windward.  So far the government has not found  a way to alter the two per cent tax,  to which such strenuous objection has  been made by the low grade miners.  But it must come in time���there can  be little 'doubt of that���high grade  miners to the contrary notwithstanding.  REPUBLIC GROUP  LOOKS GOOD  Ore  Kootenay Engineering Works  NELSON, B. G.

The Nelson Copper Syndicaje has  been incorporated with a capital of  $10,000 in $100 shares.  Patrick Clark, of Spokane, has started work on the Kootenay Belle, near  Ymir, which he recently bonded.  The St. Eugene mine, Moyie, had  for its share upwards of 50 per cent of  the lead bounty earned last month.  In December the Nelson smelter  produced 1,407,927 pounds of lead,  the smelter at Trail 1,088,330 pounds.  The Slocan Star has contracted  2,500 tons of zinc to the United States  Zinc Company at Pueblo, Col. It  will run 35 per cent /.inc. Three  months will be needed to ship it.  The long tunnel of the Rambler-  Cariboo was in 1,400 feet on the first  of the. year and the 1,500 mark will be  reached this week. The contractors  have averaged seven feet per day since  commencing work, or about 215 feet  per month.  James Cronin, general manager of  the big St. Eugene silver mine in East  KootenayJ has accepted the general  managership of the War Eagle and  Centre Star mines. Mr. Cronin is a  director of both companies. He succeeds E. B. Kirby, who recently resigned. Since the resignation of Mr.  Kirby it had been generally: expected  that Mr. Cronin would be his successor.  Shipment Shows Good  Returns.  The development work carried on at  the Republic group in Smith's camp  since last September in order to secure  a series of shipping tests has resulted  very satisfactorily.' The quantity of  ore exposed on three of the properties,  the permanence and continuity of the  leads, coupled with the smelter returns  all combine to demonstrate that the  Boundary is about to add another producer to it* growing list at high grade  propositions.   . ,  The Republic group comprises the  Last Chance, Republic, None Such  and Hidden Treasure mineral claims  situate in Smith's camp, one mile west  of the Montreal & Boston Copper  Co.'s smelter, at Boundary Falls*. It is  owned by the Republic Gold Alines,  Ltd., of which W. T. -Smith, a pioneer  of the district, is the general manager.  Mr. Smith has just received the smelter returns of a recent carload shipment  of 20 tons of ore from the Last Chance  claim. The ore was treated at the  Hall Mines smelter, Nelson, B.C. The  carioad according to the official certi-  cate, averaged 18^ per cent, lead, $3  gold and 22 ozs. silver, equivalent to  $23.40 per tori including the lead  bounty. Returns from the second carload shipment from the same claim  have not jet been received but are  expected daily; however, the average  check samples ran about the same as  the prior shipment, indicating uniformity in values. The Last 'Chance lead  varies from eight to ten feet in width  and runs northeast arid southwest,  being traceable oh the surface for hundreds of feet. The gange is quartz; the  richest ore being from one foot to eighteen inches wide on the hanging wall  side; and the ore on the foot wall var  ies from two to two and one-half feet  in thickness, but is of lower grade.  The contents of the entire vein, will  concentrate at the ratio of five to one.  The formation is ideal, the vein occurring in the slate with greenstone or  diorite on the hanging wall, and slate  on the foot wall.  The None Such claim also made a  similar caiload shipment, which averaged $10 gold and 2 bz. silver per ton.  The vein occurs in the same formation  and averages from three to five feet in  width. It is the same lead as the one  on the Last Chance, the adjoining  claim.  The carload shipment fromithe Republic claim proved even higher, the  ore averaging $17,gold and 7^ ozs.  silver per ton. The vein runs at right  angles to the other lead and is from  12 to 18 inches in width. It.occurs  in identical formation.  A good wagon road extends from  Boundary Falls to this group of mines,  affording an inexpensive down hill  haul. The C.P.R. traverses the Hidden Treasure, one of the properties of  the Republic group. With three shipping propositions'the outlook for the  company is indeed exceedingly.bright.  ���Greenwood Times.  t  Air Compressors    :     Rock Drills -j  THE CANADIAN RAND DRILL CO.     \  Head Office and Works.

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'., sup-'}  press the cough, and preparations con- j  taining 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 breath-  ingand 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.

Huxley and the Reporters.  i'r\ N his arrival in Baltimore, Profes-  IUJ sor Huxley was driven to the  >/ country seat or Mr. Garrett, who  had offered him hospitality and  had Invited a large company to meet  him In an afternoon party. There waa  but one Intervening day 'between his  arrival, tired out by a long Journey Sn  the interior, and his delivery ot the ad-  dreas. He had hardly reached the residence of his host before the reporters  discovered hhn and asked for the  manuscript of his speech. "Manuscript?" foe said. "I have none. I shall  speak freely on a theme with -u/hlch I  am quite familiar." "Well, professor,"  said the interlocutor, "that is all right,  but our Instruction)* are to send the  speech to the papers in New York, and  tf you cannot give us the copy we must  take It down as well as we can and  telegraph it, for the Associated Press  Is bound to print It the morning after  It is spoken." This was appalling, for  in view of the possible inaccuracy of  the shorthand, and the possible condensation of the wlrnhand, the lecturer  was afraid that technical and scientific  terms might not be rightly reproduced.  "You can have your choice, professor,"  said the urbane reporter, "to give us  the copy or to let us do the best we  can. for report' the speech we shall."  The professor yielded, and the next  day he walked up and down his room  at Mr. Garrett's dictating to a stenographer, In cold and Irresponsive seclusion, the speech which he expected to  make before a receptive and hospitable  assembly.  I sat very near the orator as he delivered the address In the Academy of  ���Music, and noticed that, although hf  kept looking at the pile of manuscript  on the desk before , him, he did not  turn thc pagea over. The speech was  appropriate and well received, but it  had no glow, and the orator did not  equal Ills reputation for charm and  persuasiveness. When the applause  was over I said to Mr. Huxley: "I noticed that you did not read your address; I am afraid the light was Insufficient." "Oh," sold he, "that was not  the matter. I ihave been In distress  The reporters brought me, according to  their promise, the copy of their notes.  It was on thin translucent paper, and  to make It legible they put clean white  sheets between the leaves. That made  such bulk, that I removed the Intermediate leaves, and -when I stood up at  the desk I found I could not read a  sentence. So I have been In a dilemma���not daring to speak freely, anc!  trying tc recall what I dictated yesterday and allowed the reporters to send  to New York."

Suddenly Mr. Gladstone started up  and exclaimed: "I never said that In  my life!"  Disraeli was silent, and putting his  hands behind his back, gazed apparently In blank astonishment at the box in  front of him. Several seconds went by,  but he never moved. The members in  the crowded House looked from one to  the other, and many Imagined that  Disraeli was merely waiting for his opponent to apologize. But Mr. Glad-  atone, who had a habit, which he developed In later years, of chatting volu-  bly to his neighbor during any Interruption of this kind in which he was  concerned, made no sign. A minute  passed, but the sphinx did not move.  A minute and a quarter, but he was  still  motionless.  A minute and a half of this sllencf  seemed as If It was an hour.  "When the second minute was completed the excitement in the House began to grow Intense, fllsraeli seemed  to be transfixed. Was he ill? Was the  great man suiking? "What' could this  strange silence portend?  Two minutes and a half!  Some members rose and approached  him, but Disraeli raised his hands as II  to deprecate their Interference, and  they stole back to their places, conscious that they were forbidden to Interrupt. Then at last, when the min  ute-hand of the clock had passed three  tiroes round Its course, the most remarkable silence which the House had  ever experienced within living memory  was broken as the Tory leader slowly  began once more to ppeak  "Mr. Chairman," tie said, "and gentlemen," and then word for word he repeated the whole speech of Mr. Gladstone from which he had made his quotation, duly Introducing the particular  passage which the Liberal leader had  denied. Then he paused and looked  across at his rival. The challenge was  not to be avoided, and Mr. Gladstone  bowed���he would have raised his hat  did he wear one in the House, which, in  the phraseology of the ring, was  equivalent to throwing up the spongo.  Mr. Disraeli afterward informed n  friend that, working backward, he had  recalled the whole of Mr. Gladstone's  speech to his mind. Beginning- at the  disputed quotation, he recovered the  context which led up to It, and so, step  by step, the entire oration. Then he  was enabled to repent It from the outset exactly as he had read It.  Conservation of Energ*y.  "You say you never gossip?"

Certainly, mighty,few places would  have suffered the railway, company lo  take its own sweet time in putting up  a bridge over a main.artery of traffic,  which they had practically closed, and  left closed for months. This i*.,' perhaps, the one "kick" that Phoenicians  have had to make duiing the entire  Great Northern construction to this  place, and now it is almost remedied.  , ������*  Phoenix is not the only place on the  planet that .has to rustle for an adequate water supply. There is a little  burg called New York that, according  to leporis, is gelling teady to spend  $90,000 000 on a water supply, which  will be brought about 100 miles.  Who was it that remarked misery  loves company?  MI  Speaking of the water supply, reminds us of a paragraph in a recent  issue of the Greenweed Times, to the  effect that water was being hauled from  Greenwood to Phoenix and sold heie  at $i per barrel. Some one musl  have had a pipe dream, and fort*otten  that the chief supply of water for Ihe city  of Gieenwood flows from and through  the ci'y of l'hoenix and consequently  we have the first opportunity of getting  that water if we want il. But at any  rate, we prefer the hike water, even  though the quality is not Ai, and tin  quantity is sight is quite questionable.

The one sure  cure is fragrant, healing Catarrhozone,  which is sent by Ihe air you breathe  direct to the root of the trouble. Mr.  T. Y. Mac Vicar, of Yarmouth, suffered  for years from Catarrh, and says: -'In  my Jong experience with this loathsome  disease I'never used any remedy that  relieved and cured so promptly as Catarrhozone. When my nostrils were  so stuffed up that 1 couldn't breathe I  found a few inhalations of Catarrhozone was sufficient to clear away the  mucous. I am-'perfectly cured by  Catarrhozone and free from the disease  entirely." Use only Catarrhozone.  Complete outfit  $i.oo- trial size 25c.
