Those present were: A. B. W. Hodges,  R. B. Boucher, M.D., W. S. Macy,  W. M. Law, A. B. Hood, C. D. Hunter, F. Buckless, H. A. Wright and  O. B. Smith, jr The secretary's and  manager's reports were received with  approval, and these eentlemen were  tendered a vote of 'thanks, one also  being given to Wm. Roe, the superintendent.  The directors and officers chosen  were the same  as  before, namely,   A.  B. W. Hodges, president; R. B.  Boucher, M.D., vice-president ��� A. B.  Hood, secretary-treasurer ; O. B.  Smith, jr., manager; and H. A. Wright,  C. D. Hunter and W. S. Macy.  The past year has been a most prosperous one for the company in every  way, and the prospects are brighter.  From what was for years an abandoned  prospect, it has become with careful,  miner-like managment, one of the  leading high grade mines of the Boundary, and gives every prospect of making an enviable name for itself in the  future. While not having room for  the various reports in lull, we give  something from that of the general  manager, as follows:  Managers Report.  Phoenix, B.C., Jan. 1st, 1906.  The Skylark  Development  Company,  Limited.  Gentlemen���Below is a brief report  of the work done at the Skylark Mine  since January 1st 1905. Shortly' before that time tha mine was full of  water, which was pumped out, disclosing the following conditions. An incline shaft, following the ore, had  reached a.depth of 75 feet. At this  point a fault was encountered throwing the lea.. 40 feet to the east. There  were four drifts, the north' drift and  south drift from the bottom of the  shaft, and the e?st north drift and the  east south drift, following the lead  after it has been picked up beyond the  fault, in all abont 160 feet of drifting.  Also there was a 30 foot winze on the  lead beyond the fault. All faces were  in waste and most of the ore had been  stoped out about the drifts.  Since Jan. 1st, 1905, the following  work has been done:  Sinking      55 Ft.  Upraising    174 Ft.  Drifting    790 Ft.  Cross-cutting      52 Ft.  tonnage of 490.tons.     This I think is  a   conservative,  estimate,     the    only  doubtful figure being the 6 inches, and  our past experience would show this t<>  be  too  small   rather  than too large.  This leaves us a large block of ground  south to be  determined,  and   as   the  ore is on the surface it is reasonable to  suppose we will get it below.    Also, I  have  figured   nolhing for the ground  north  of the   sh^ft.    We   have  this  ground; opened  up on   the   150-foot  level by a drift 155 feet long.     So far  we have found very little in   this drift  but  the  walls have  been   good   and  regular all   the   way,   and   in   many  places we have had good ore several  inches wide.    As some of the best ore  we have found in the mine came from  directly  over  thi*  north  drift on the  75-rfoot level, it is again reasonable  to  suppose that this ground will b-.a good  producer   later  on.    At  the  present  time one  man is raising in the north  end of this drift, and we hope to hear  good reports from him shortly.  The coming yea,r it will probaoly be  necessary, to sink to another level. We  have been working to this end for  some time, and a new shaft is practically through from the r 50-foot level to  the surface. Whfcn this shaft is completed, all work can be done by one  hoist, whereas, ar the present time.two  hoists are used and the ore from the  lower level, has to! be transferred on  the 75-foot level.  The whole is respectfully submitted.  O. B. Smith, Jr.,  ���  * . ��� '1 Manager.  NEWOFFICIALS  FOR THE CITY  Boundary Mining Notes  W.  Rumberger  is  the Mayor  Again  Contest for Aldermen in East  Ward  Total  1071  Ft.  535/4 dry tons   of   ore   have   been  mined and shipped lo the Granby and  Nelson smelters.

This is very  encouraging, both the smallness of the  fault and the size and quality of the  ore body below it.  Besides the development work done  below ground a shaft house and mess  heuse were built and the old buildings  repaired. The cost of this work was  approximately $700.  Ore In Sl{bl.  This is very haid to determine definitely, inasmuch as the width of the  ore va.ies very much from day to day,  jumping from almost nothing to 24  inches sometimes in a few feet. So  far as we know, the ore above ti:e 75-  foot level has practically been all  stoped out to a point 150 feet south of  the shaft. We can follow the ore on  the surface for 200 feet south of this  and have it on the 150-toot level 100  south of this point.  Figuring the ore 6 inches wide (aver-  and 245 feet long (from winze  and 40  feet high,  gives us a  . ;Erom official figures just made.pub-  iic it is learned that the Granby Consolidated during the calendar year  1905, smelted altogether 678,988 tons  of ore, or an average of 57,322 tons  per month. Of this total, thete were  33,505 tons of custom ore smelted, the  balance of 654,483 tons being from  the company's Phoenix mines. As  the company shipped 653,889 tons ot  its own ore in the same period of time,  it used up about 1,000 tons mere of  Its own ore than was shipped in the  twelve months, a large reserve being  carried at the smelter. In the table  below is given the custom and company's smelting tonnage by the month.  It will be noticed that the largest  month for custom smelting was September, 4,683 tons, and the smallest  was December, when only 1,643 tons  tons of outside ore were handled, al  though December was the greatest  month for smelting in the history of  the Granby Consolidated:  Month Gr��nby Ore  January    41.759  February 41,212  March    54,493  April 49��538  May 54.751  June 50,882  July 54,45��  August 36>944  September 53,650  October 7��,957  November 67,M1  December 78,706  Custom Ore  3.770  2,478  2,716  = ,249  ���-���794  i,S47  3,216  3.265  4,682  2,310  2.535  '.643  Totals 654,483  33.5��5  33,5��5  Grand total, 1905 687,988  New K. ot P.

Ten or fifteen  members of Greenwood Lodge No. 29  were present at the installation, degree  work being put on previously. Following the installation refreshments  were served, followed by a general  social time, the hall being filled to the  doors by members of the order. Following were the officeis installed for  the ensuing year :  G.C., Eric Jackson.  V-.C, Ed Smith.  Prelate, G. W. McAuliffe.  M. of W., John Campbell.  K. of R. & S., George L. KIkins.

Fever Patients laprovinc  In both hospitals yesterday theie  were but 21 fever patients, several having been discharged during the past  week. No new cases have been found  sor more than two weeks, and no  fatilitics have occured in the same  time. One or two patients arc still  pretty ill, but the general typhoid  uation is generally improving.  Comparatively little interest was taken in the municipal elections in Phoenix this yea*-, with the exception of  aldermen for the east ward. Monday  was nomination day, and George W.  Rumberger was chosen mayor by acclamation. In the west ward James  Marshatl and Julius Carson were reelected as councilmen, and A. D. McKenzie was also chosen as alderman.  In the west ward there were four  nominations for aldermen, namely,  Edward Brown, Michael H. Kane,  David Oxley and Robert H. Karatof-  sky, necssitating an election.- This  was held Thursday, resulting in the  election of the first three, by tbe following vote : Bmwn, 35; Kane, 34;  Oxley, 25; Karatofsky, 10. There are  100 names on the east ward voters'  list, some of whom were non-residents.  The result was announced a few minutes after the polls closed at 7 p. m.  Thursday.  Tbe New Officials.  Mayor Rumberger enjoys the distinction of being the only mayor Phoenix ever had, having been chosen to  succeed himself at every election since  the city was incorporated in the fall of  1600. This is, consequently, his  seventh term as mayor.  James Mar-hall also has been an  alderman of Phoenix since the city  was made a mnnicipality, and like Mr.  Rumberger, is serving his seventh  term. He is proprietor^of the Hotel  Brooklyn.       V:    '.'.'��� -'''���' -r*V"  Edward" Brown was an "aWerriian  last year, and is one of the proprietors  of the Hotel Bellevue. 1 He has been  a resident of Phoenix . for five or six  years.  David Oxley is one of the- proprietors of ihe Summit hotel, and has resided in Phoenix for six years or more.  This will be his first term as an alderman.  M H. Kane is also about to serve  his first term as an alderman. He is a  miner and the proprietor of the Cottage hotel. . .  Julius Carson was a member of the  aldermanic board during 1905 and is  serving his second term. He is a  miner, and has been a resident of  Phoenix for several years.  A. D. McKenzie is the new member  for the west ward, and is the proprietor of the Reco laundry, having resided  in Phoenix for about five years.  The public school-tiustees elected  were A. B. Hood and R. H. Karatof-  sdy, the hold ovei being Isaac Crawford.  By Monday or Tuesday the ���Granby  smelter will be able to get "juice" from  the Bonnington concern. //  Work is shortly to' be resumed on  the Humming Bird, one of the high  grade mines near Greenwood.       "    _  The new ore crusher for the Granby  Co. was shipped from Sherbrooke,  Que., on the 12th inst., and is expected to arrive here next week.  The new 10 h. p. electric hoist has  arrived for the Crescent mine, and the  force will be increased as soon as it is  installed and in working order.  Yesterday the new seven drill  electric drive air compressor, ordered  some months ago by the Dominion  Copper Co. for the Rawhide mine  arrived at the properly, and will be installed as soon as possible. Cascade  power will be used.  The Oro Denoro is now shipping  almost entirely over the Great Northern, as the ore body being tjken out  is below ihe C.P.R. tracks.. Since  December 20th, or exactly a month,  50 cars, aoout 1,500 tons, of ore have  been sent down to the Granby smelter.  CRANBYHAS  PAID $4115,0110  Dividend Checks  Issued  Monday.

Boundary residents, and others who  are shareholders in the Granby Consolidated, this week received their  dividend checks, the total amounting  to $405,000, or three per cent on the  par v.ilue of the outstanding stock,  which is r,350,000 ten dollar shares.

FAGAN  HERE THURSDAY  Looking Into Water and Sewage Matters.  Dr. C. J. Fagan, of Victoria, government health officer for the entire pro-  ince, airived in the city Thursday  evening, and that night held a conference with Mayor Rumberger, the city  health officers, Drs. Boucher and  Gordon, Dr. Spankie, of Greenwood,  government health officer, and W. G.  McMynn, government agent at Greenwood. The water and sewage systems  were thoroughly discussed, and Dr.  Fagan confirmed the statement printed  in the Pioneer last week, that^from his  analyses, Marshall lake water was all  right for domestic purposes, but other  water hereabouts was very bad.  Dr. Fagan recommended the employment of an engineer to go into the  entire situation, especially regarding  sewage, and with the acquiescence of  the mayor, will endeavor to send a  government engineer here within the  next week or two to make estimates  and give his opinion on the matter.  It is the intention probably to  recommend a large septic tank system  for the sewerage of the hotels particularly, and enforce greater care generally regarding sanitary conditions in  Phoenix.  Dr. Fagan also visited the two milk  ranches below the city, and gave some  strict orders regarding their conduct,  plainly stating that prosecution to the  limit would follow' if the orders are  not carried out to the letter.  Yesterday the doctor left direct for  the coast by way of the Great Northern  railway.  Latest Prices la Melals.

Several days ago the force of miners  driving a tunnel on the Idaho for the  Dominion Copper Co.,' not far from  the Great Northern station, struck ore  when in about 70 feet, the whole face  of the tunnel being in mineralized rock.  It' was^ the intention' of Manager  DrummOnd to at once begin shipments  to the'company's' smelter* from the  Idaho, if he could arrange it with the  railways. The C.P.R.: does not have  a spur anywhere near the Idaho, and  hasno tracks in this camp at so low a  level. It-would be necessary to load  the ore on Great Northern cars, and  transfer to the C.P.R. at some point,  presumably the nearest point where  the tracks come together. This is at  Denoro, though there is no connection. . '   -     *'  And right here the trouble began,  tor the railways could not or would  not get together in the matter, with  ihe result that no shipments will be  made from the Idaho till a compromise  is reached. To make the transfer, it  would be necessary to construct a  short spur at Denoro between the  tracks of the two railways.  Evidently there is a large tonnage in  the Idaho, which has always been the  opinion of old timers in this camp,  and this important find of ore seems  to bear that out. But it will not bear  placing on the dump and being handled two or three times���as Phoenix  ore is of too low grade to pay for such  work. If the railways will agree in the  matter, it can be loaded very cheaply  on Great Northern cars, transferred to  the C-P.R. and taken to the Boundary  Falls plant of the cotnoany. But  Manager Drummond will not be held  up.  at one time by this or any other mining or other company in British Columbia.  , The dividend was declared- at a  meeting of the board of directors held  in New York on December 1st, first  announced in the Pioneer of December 2nd, and was payable January  15th, 1906. At the same meeting it  was decided to raise the par value of  the shares of the.company from $10 to  $100,.as soon as the.necessary legislation could be had through the legislature of British Columbia, under the  laws of which the company was or:  ganized. This will probably be put  into effect some time, this winter or  early spring;.   .  Two years ago the Granby Consolidated declared its first dividend,  amounting to $133,630. With that  just paid shareholders have received  altogether $538,630 in profits from  this company. While an official statement is not made on the subject, it is  confidently understood that hereafter  this, the premier .mining, company  of British Columbia, will distribute dividends regularly. Last summer the statement was published, and  credited to Manager J. P. Graves, that  the Granby was making on an average  of $100,000 per month, net. Since  then the price of copper has steadily  appreciated arid the company has put  two more, and larger ...blast-furnaegs in  operation at its smelter, increasing the  copper output by about one-third.  The company, therefore, should be  making better than $125,000 per  month now.  Since the Pioneer was first published,  more'than one person has stated that  the company could never pay a profit  on the low grade ores being handled  ���which shows that the management  uf the company knew what it was doing, even though pessimistic outsiders  did not.

Phoenix Aerie No 158, Fraternal  Order of Eagles, completed the installation of officers for the ensuing year  last night, the. installing officer being  Past Worshipful President E P. Shea.

There was  some peace at home during the Japanese war, but now there seems to be  little else than anarchy.  Up to the hour of going to press, no  new names had been mentioned this  week for lieutenant-governor of this  province. .Must be a mistake somewhere, or else Grit politicians are  asleep. "   The legislative assembly being now  in session, the charter-monger will  now proceed.diligently to attempt to  get in his deadly work. But it will be  all in vain, as that day has passed in  this province.  Rossland announces its annual winter carnival for February 7th to ro'th,  and great preparations arebeing made  for the event, which is a source of  much pleasure to the people of the  Kootenays generally. This year, as  usual, there will doubtless be a goodly  attendance from the Boundary also.  Announcement comes from Ottawa  that the department of railways will  not oppose the building of the V.,V. &  ��. through the Hope mountains to  Vancouver, surveys for which are now  beins* vigorously prosecuted. This is  as it should be, and will meet with the  approval of the majority of the people  of this province.  Last week, according to figures  published, over 30,000 tons ^of ore  were produced by the mines of Kootenay and Boundary. Of this amount  23,400 tons were produced by the  Boundary mines alone, or nearly eighty  per cent of the total. And the best of  it is, that this year will see an increase  on these figures, according to contracts  already made and plans mapped out  for new furnace capacity in Boundary  smelters.  Twelve furnaces are now in commission in the smelters of Boundary���except when one occasionally needs some  repairs. When it so happens that they  are all operating for a full week at one  one and the same time, the output for  that week should be close to 30,000  tons of ore, or more than 100,000  tons per month, ar at the rate of about  What proved to; be; the most important function of its kind ever given  in Phoenix, and perhaps in the entire  Boundary, was the grand opening ball  at the new Miners' Union hall, last  week Friday. The youth and beauty  of the Boundary -was- there, coming  from every portion of the district by  horse, in rigs and even by special  train.  The special train over the C.P.R.  from Grand ���Kdi'ks,'bringing members  of the Federal Labor Union of that  place, their ladies and friends, had  about 90 passengers , alone, and although it was delayed at Eholt for an  hour by trying to climb up on the platform, due to a switchrod breaking as  the train passed the switch, it was all  forgotten a little later when the passengers 'were enjoying themselves in  the mazy in the largest, newest and  best dancing hall in the Boundary.  Greenwood, Eholt, Grand Forks,  Deadwood, Boundary Falls and Midway, were tepresented, and the hall  was crowded to the doors. The music  for the evening was furnished by  Biners' orchestra of five piece.*, which  was a guarantee of its excellence.  Nothing that could be thought of  was forgotten by the several committees of the Miners' Union for the comfort of the hundreds of guests. The  hall, 43x68 feet in the clear, itself had  been . artistically decorated by the  ladies with bunting, 'flags and greens,  and presented a most attractive appearance. The entire building, with  the exception of the opera house, in  the basement, which is not yet completed, was thrown open to the inspection of the guests, and many complimentary words were heard on the  enterpiise of the members of the union  in carrying to this stage of completion  the splendid building then being occupied for the first time.  When supper time arrived the  dancers wereconducted tothespacious  lodge rooms above, where the long  tables were found to be most bountifully spread, fairly groaning with the  good things provided. More than  one remarked that no better supper  had ever been served at a dance in  this section.  In the early hours of the   morning  the  dance  broke up to the strains ot  "Home,   Sweet   Home,"   the   special  train   taking   the   Grand   Forks  and  Eholt   people back   to   their  abodes,  while others   remained over for other  trains during the day on both railways.  As to the net results  of  the dance,  nothing definite  can   yet be given, as  many tickets out have not yet been accounted   for,   but the members ol the  union feel confident that there will be  considerably over $1,000 to be devoted to the building fund of the   union.  The hall will cost about $15,000 when  completed some time 'his year, and in  the meantime the fine dance hall and  lodge and other rooms will   be  occupied.    As  the   typhoid outbreak  has  cost the union ahout $1,500   in benefits to members, work has been discontinued on the building for the present.

Evi  dently the voters are too apathetic to  take any great interest Jn such matters,  or they are pretty well satisfied with  the manner in which 'the business'of  the cjty has been conducted for the  last year. The new council "will meet  next Monday, according to statute, for  the first time.  Travellers over the Great Northern  to the Boundary are free with their  Irish compliments at the service now  given by that railway to this section,  not to s.iy anything of the equipment.  When spoken -to on the subject, a  Great Northern official recen ly staled  that it was not because the travel was  not of gigantic- proportions that the  service was no better than it is, but on  account of the difficulty of ananging  a passenger schedule that will suit  travellers on all the numerous branches  of the system and yet work out to the  satisfaction of the company. It is to  be hoped that something different will  be afforded in the near future..  All of which reminds us of the service that the C. P. R. gave the Boundary when that company's branch was  first operated   into   this country from  the Columbia river, six years ago.     Ii  was  of   the  poorest, with a capital P.  But after a while the company took a  tumble, as it were, put on a good train,  and has operated   it  ever since in excellent  shape      It took some time to.  bring this about, but it came when tiie  kick   was    hard    enough   and   loud  enough,   and   a   complaint   is  rarely  heard now about the C.P.R. train into  the Boundary, every convenience being  afforded  the travelling public.     It required   some   time also   for  Phoenix  itself to secure a decent passenger ser  vice on  the   Phoenix   branch,   but it  finally came and has been maintained.  Perhaps   the   Great    Northern    will  eventually awaken also on this subject,  and let us hope that it will be soon.  issue is doing a good work from the  fact that . telegraphic orders for hundreds of Holiday Numbers- have been  received from Boston, Chicago and  elsewhere, while the newsdealers of ihe  Boundary itself have acquired the  habit of sending in repeat orders just  about so often. All of which goes to  prove that the number is steadily doing  the work laid out for it, imperfect  though it may be in some respects.  Speaking of the Holiday Number  brings to mind some figures made'regarding it by the Pioneer's devil. After  considerable labor, he has estimated  that if the sheets in the 4,500 copies  of the book were opened, and each  sheet laid end to end, they would  reach about twenty miles. More than  a ton of heavy paper was used in printing the number.     '  i; Church Services Tomorrow |  Methodist���Class meeting at 11 a.  m., Sunday School at 2:30 p. m. evening service 7:30 p. m.

Beginning February 2d, Vancouver  is to have a new weekly paper, conducted on what is certainly an original  plan. It will be called the Two  Voices, and will aim to give both sides  of the political questions of the day  from the pens of leading men recognized by their parties. Besides this,  it will make an endeavor to fill a long  felt want in other ways. The experiment is, to a large extent, a new one,  but the paper will be looked for with a  good deal of interest. If it does not  run too much to politics, there should  be a field for it.  It is a source of much satisfaction to]  the residents of Phoenix that the two  local physicians have been able to  practically stamp out the outbreak of  typhoid fever, from which sixty or  seventy were sick at one time, four or  five deaths resulting. Every day now  sees some of the convalescent ones  out again, and the number ill has been  reduced to reasonable proportions.  The next thing in order is an authoritative statement as to the cause of the  outbreak, and the means by which it  may be prevented in the future. As  ;yet nothing of this kind has been made  public officially.  .  The Revelstoke Mail-Herald says  that a ruling by the postal department  that card parties in which prizes are  won at euchre, whist and other games,  are in the nature of lotteries, and that  the publishing of drawings or winnings  in the newspapers is a violation of law,  subjectim- the offending publication to  exclusion from the mails, seems to be  a little hard on our good church and  society people who have been accustomed to give interest to their social  gatherings and societies or to bring  money into the church treasury by  such games, even if it be not an inter-  terence with liberty of the press.  Notice ie hereby given that, 30 days  after date, I interidlto apply to the Hon.

We have received a copy' of'the  holiday number of the Phoenix Pioneer  and Boundary Mining Journal, published at Phoenix, in the Boundary  mining district of British Columbia.  It is a handsome publication with some  i oo illustrations of smelters, mines,  business blocks, maps and scenery of  this famous district. It is by far the  best thing we have seen in the holiday  number line The matter is splendidly  arranged, and the articles are comprehensive and well written. The publisher has played no favorites, and all  of the towns in the district have received generous mention and the best  features fully illustrated. The publisher  modestly states that the edition consists of ,4,500 copies. It would be  well for the mining and other interests  of this section if a hundred thousand  copies of this edition were sent east to  better acquaint the investing public of  the great opportunities offered by the  undeveloped mining resources ol' the  West.���Butte Mining Review.

Contained within  the 72 pages are a number of excellent  cuts descriptive of the mineral industries of the Boundary district.   Among  the leading articles are descriptions of  the  Granby  Con.   M., S. & P. Co.'s  big si.ielter at Grand Forks and mines  at Phoenix ; British Columbia Copper  Co.'s big smelter   at   Greenwood   and  Mother Lode mine in Deadwood camp;  the development of the water power at  Bonnington  Falls to provide electrical  energy   for   the   Boundary mines and  smelters  and   the   Dominion   Copper  Company's   undertaking.      The high  grade  mines  in Greenwood camp, the  mines of Franklin camp and the North  Fork and   the West   Fork   camps  are  well described.    Short sketches of the  towns   6f   Eholt,   Midway,   Phoenix,  Greenwood and Grand Forks are also  included.     The publication issued by  W. B. Willcox, the energetic   manager  and editor  of the  Pioneer, is a credit  not only to himself but the whole district which he has so ably covered in  this   holiday   issue.���Victoria    Daily  Colonist, Jan. 12, 1906.

Willcox, publisher of the  Phoenix Pioneer, has surpassed himself this year in his holiday number.  It is a handsome volume of 72 pages  with over 100 illustrations and five  maps prepared especially for the occasion. The Pioneer printed 4,500  copies and each one tells the story of  progress and prosperity in'the Boundary country in a manner that will  impresseven'the most casual reader  with the truthfulness and reliability of  the statements made. Phoenix is a  small town and one that owing to its  size is not entitled to a publication of  the magnitude of the Pioneer's holiday  number. It gets it, however, because  the town is fortunate enough to have a  newspaper man with' enterprise, grit,  loyalty and unbounded enthusiasm for  the future of the town-arid the district.  Go over Canada and the'TJnited States  and how many towns the size of Phoenix can be found with .a ^newspaper  that-would attempt, such a laborious  task I Not one. Business men in  Phoenix and in that district should  appreciate Mr. Willcox. He has made  the name of Phoenix known wherever  people are interested in mining, and  the resources of the wonderful Boundary are'farhiliar to'thousands through  his untiring zeal along' the lines of  publicity. The Herald' hopes that he  made money out of the venture. If  he did it is mighty little for the labor  performed. But he has accomplished  a great good -for his territory, and it is  to be hoped that the people will show  their appreciation in a material way.���  Cranbrook Herald.

People who tell you that there is no  money in raising chicks may have tried  to make money in the business by using  setting hens as hatchers, and they  might as well have tried to locate a  gold mine in the cabbage patch. The  business of a hen is���to lay eggs. As  a hatcher and brooder she is outclassed. That's the business of the  Chatham Incubator and Hrooder, and  they do >t perfectly and successfully.  The poultry business, properly conducted, pays far better than any other  business for the amount of time and  money   invested.
