The same firm built the  existing line of the V. V. & E. from  Marcus, Wash., into Princeton, a distance of approximately 200 miles, as  well as the branch into .Phoenix some  years ago.  Nothing has yet been made public  by the Great Northern as to when construction will be undertaken from Hope  up the Coquahalla river and over the  pass to Coldwater. This section of  the road is the most difficult on the  entire route and. will be the most costly  owing to the rugged nature of the val  leys leading to the pass and the- heavy  expenditure which will be involved in  securing a maximum grade of even 2%  per cent,  Mloen'a Uoloa Smoker.  Phoenix Miners' Union, No.' 8, gave  a smoker in their lodgeroom last Saturday evening, all wishing to participate being cordially invited. The hall  was tilled to overflowing with miners  and their friends, ample refreshments  and smokers' supplies being -furnished  by the Union. The program, which  included songs, recitations, and  speeches, was opened by R. Horrell  singing "Annie Laurie." During the  serving of refreshments the chairman,  J. D. McLean, called on Mayor  Matheson for a few remarks. Mr.  Matheson replied briefly, stating that  it was the first time he had had the  pleasure of attending any ofthe social  functions of the Union during his ten  years' residence in Phoenix; he be.  lieved in unions, and the only reason  he did hot belong to a union was because his business connections did not  call for it. He concluded by thanking  them for the support given by upion  men towards his elr ion as mayor ot  Phoenix; while he had asked no person  for either vote or influence, he believed he had received the support of  union men generally. The audience  then joined in singing "He's a jolly  good fellow."

MAY RESUME 0IVIDBNOS  Crows Neat Pasa Coal sad Coke Company  Isaacs  Stalemeat  The Crows Nest Pass Coal and  Coke company, in which the Boundary is particularly interested, has  issued its annual statement, and it is  expected the company will shortly resume the payment of dividends.  . Production has increased at the  mines from an output of 3000 tons a  day in J uly to an average of 4000 in  December, and in addition the new  management has conserved the interests of the - company and the shareholders by setting aside 10 cents per  ton for depreciation. While the exact  figures are not to be published, the  December statement shows not only  the wiping out of all the loss, but a  net profit of some thousands, though  just how much the directors do not  wish to make public at present.

All expressed them-|  selves as well pleased with the progress  being made under adverse conditions.  Some important changes have been  made in the survey, and a large amount  of bridging will take the place of a big  cut in the original plans. The time  limit of completing the line has neces-  arily been extended an extra thirty  days.  The Bosabarf Herald  The first issue of the Herald, published at Bossburg, Wash., by Elmer  D.

B. McKay), in replying to a toast at the surveyor' banquet at Nelson last week,  said the government had spent  $300,-  000 in survey- throughout the prov  ince during 1909 and he expected that  in 1910 the sum so expended would  be increased to $500,000; for the authorities recognized the value of this  work in the opening up of the country  Some people, not surveyors, wanted a  1 jugh survey made of the whole province. This would be utterly useless.  Good work has been done in the pas'  in opening districts and this would be  continued and existing surveys con  nected. Some day���not in his day,  he feared���the work of making a complete survey of the province would be  undertaken.  .'1CE.--H. Cook and James Nxiel  have  gone to Mother Lode n^ine to work.  MlHB.

The Dominion's initial navy shall consist of eleven  vessels to cost upwards of $11,000,000,  instead of seven vessels as semiofficially announced some weeks ago.  The eleven vessels will be made up  of four 'cruisers of the^ Bristol class,  armored^ one, of the ,Boadjcea,  small  protected  crusier class, and  six  destroyers of the improved  river class.  Sir Wilfred explained that ordinary de  stroyers were not good sea craft as  a  rule and the improved River class were  esteemed for their seagoin capabilities.  The initial expenditure for'construc  tion will be about $ 11,000,000.   Expressing the'hope that it would be possible to construct the navy in Canada,  Sir  Wilfrid "explained  that it would  probably cost  35 per  cent  more  to  ouild ships on this side of the Atlantic.  The bil|,>hich'Sir Wilfrid introduced  and which'is'entitled   "An  Act Respecting the Naval Service of Canada,"  follows the lines of the ,Militia act, one  principal difference being that the Canadians cannot be compelled to serve  in the, navy under any circumstances,  the service being entirely voluntary.  The governor-incouncil will have  authority to send the fleet anywhere  and be available mobilization in the  event of -��� war or real or apparent  -danger, the only reservation being that  on the dispatch of thefleef under these  circumstances, parliment, if not silting,  must be immediately called.

Not only is the conservation of natural resources important, but if one may  use the expression, the creation of  natural resources is also important.  The question of reforesting has been  discussed considerably and starts have  been made in several parts of Canada,  especiajlytin Ontario. *  To encourage the people of this  country in this' work and to show the  great benefits, the following facts, supplied,, by,'. Dr.��� Fernow, .dean of the  School of Forestry, are interesting and  instructive, as to the work in this line  being done in France.  ' In' France during the last' 60 years  2,300,000 acres of waste lands of vari  ous description have been planted to  forest,, at a total expenditure of about  $16,0,60,000! The annual net revenue  of these plantings at present is figured  ,at $10,000,000.' That is to say, the  (property represents now a value of  $135,000,000, at 7 per cent. The in��  teresting thing in this relation is that  most of the planting was done by private and municipal enterprise, the  'government' assisting only indirectly  by expert advice, road building and  easements. The government itself did  plant 200,000' acres of blowing sands,  worse than those of Ontario.;   It spent  it  \  1  ���.f)  Nelson's bonspiel opens on Jan. 24.

A description of what is claimed to  be the greatest nickel mine in the  world appears in the "East and West."  The mine is located at Creighton, some  twelve miles west of Sudbury. Creihg-  ton mine is very widely famed, being  indeed, the greatest nickel ore deposite  known in the world. It is claimed  that, about two-thirds -of the whole  world's supply cf nickel is mined there,  so that when'we consider that by far  the greater part of nickel used at the  present time is^ .utilized ,in making  .irmor-plating for the great battleships,*  iwe. begin to understand -how dependent the little population of Creighton  is-upon the aggressive naval* policies of  the powers of Europe, -and* the'other  ambitious nations of the present day.  Elecrtical power is used in  mining,  transmitted from the High Falls, about  twenty miles west.    Th,e power house  with its motors, powerful apparatus,  is  an -interesting - spot for anyone who  likes machinery.    The warehouse and  office building is of red  brick and  is  spacious and well   lighted.    The dry,  or clearing-up room for tbe employees,  is a feature very   worthy  of  mention.  This  "dry,"  is a large,   well-lighted,  brick  building, ��� in  which   employees  j may procure a roomy and ..well," ventilated locker for his changes of clothing.  Then, conveniently situated,   are several long enameled  troughs  supplied  ,with hot and cold water, and  perhaps  .best of all, at one end of the building,  are several, refreshing shower, baths,  a  luxury which we Students have learned  [to prize in our university gymnasium.  1    The rock-houses,   two  in  number,  are high frame structures, at  the edge  of the pit. into which the ore is raised  from the mine in "skips," or little cars,  which  are hoisted   up   the   inclined  tracks.    In the rock-house the ore  is  crushed, picked over, and loaded upon  the railway cars, and then taken to. tbe  smelter near Sudbury.    After the ore  is crushed, it  passes along on wide  belts, close by which the rock pickers  stand or sit to pick out the refuse rock  and ieave the richer' pieces to pass  onto the chutes and into the railway cars  beneath.    As many as thirty cars  of  ore per day are shipped, and each   car  is worth about one thousand dollars to  the company.  When one looks down to the dizzy  depths of the open pit he can only  form a. vague idea of its size. It is  very large, and is now, open to the third  level, which means' that the bottom of  this open pit is three-hundred feet   be  S-   O'HANLEY  SHAVINi; PARLORS  AND     BATHROOM.  Phoenix, B. C.

The discovery of the North Pole,  ���Piobably the most dramatic event  of the year, bringing to a triumphant  conclusion more than three centuries  of Arctic exploration,, has been the announcement of the. discovery of the  North Pole. Within a single week of  1909 such announcements and claims  were made by Dr. Frederick A. Cook  and by Commander Robert E. Peary  of the United Stales navy. ���  2. Wireless Telegraphy.���In some  respects the most dramatic of all  events on the ocean, and the most  wonderful of all accomplishments of  science was the saving of the lives of  some fifteen hundred passengers in thc  Republic of the White Star line by  wireless telegraphy.  3. Great Ocean Speed.���The year  1909 has produced, by the steamship  Mauretania, the highest ocean speed  yet attained. The Mauretania's record is as follows: Eastward: Highest  day's run, 610 knots; shortest passage,  4 days, 13 hours, 41 minutes (short  track); highest average speed,; 25.89  knots (long track.) Westward: highest  day's run, 673 knots; shortest passage,  4 days, 10 hours, 51 minutes (short  track); highest average speed, 26.06  knots, (short track). The Mauretania  holds all eastward records for highest  daily runs, fastest passages, shortest  passages, and highest speed ; between  the Irish coast and Sandy Hook.  4..' Man Begins to Fly.���This same  year has seen moat wonderful ^demonstrations ofthe success of flying machines���not merely steerable balloons,  but machines that are heavier than air  and yet really fly in spite of this weight.  Prominent in many daring flights during the year have been: In America,  the Wright brothers; in Germany,  Count Zeppelin (with.his huge, metal-  covered dirigible balloon); and in  France, M/Bleriot (who was first to  cross the English Channel in a flying  machine.)  5.

If you write it, and the Pioneer  tells it, then there are two elements  of interest united���you know the  goods advertised, and the Pioneer  vouches for your intelligence with its  acknowledged veracity.  The people of the Boundary not  only rely upon the Pioneer, but respect those who obtain access to its  columns. Every-day readers of the  ���weekly Pioneer easily cultivate a  confidential acquaintance with even  its occasional advertisers.  It is all very simple, just as we  said, like the telling of a story. Be  the story ever so good, a great deal  rests with the teller. And a good  teller can do wonders with a good  story.
