C. Copper Co.,  having also been here a year ago. J  .Thos. Russell returned last week  from. Winnipeg,where he went to negotiate a deal in connection with his  Sturgeon lake iron claims���in which  he was successful.  j The contract for the erection of additional ore and coke bins at the Granby smelter is completed, increasing  the storage capacity by several thousands of tuns, each.  Early this week the Granby succeeded in getting its seventh furnace  in blast. The eighth will follow at no  distant date, when the;entire battery  will be in operation.  Ralph Stokes recently seated in the  Chicago Mining World that the ores  from the Snowshoe mine, in this camp,  contained approximately x.4% copper,  $1.50 in gold and 23 cents in silver  per ton.  ��� Dominion Copper will hold its formal annual.meeting next Monday at  the company's office . in Phoenix.  This is done to comply with the law,  and there will probably be but a few  present.  Supt. Roberts, of the Jewell mine,  Long Lake camp, is understood to be  in Colorado, investigating treatment  methods for Jewell ore, of which there  are thousands of tons, carrying fair  gold values.  1. In a few days stoping will be started  |at the Crescent mine, where ten or a  dozen men are employed drifting at  the 225-foot level. Some time in  February it is likely that ore shipments  from this property will be resumed, the  ore going to the Trail smelter.  Gapt. Appleton and other Spokane  capitalists are reported to have taken  a large interest in the company owning the Little Bertha mine, 16 miles  above Grand Forks, with the intention  of installing machinery and pushing  development work. The new North  Fork extension of the Kettle Valley  railway runs  close  to the mine.  COMING AND GOING  n  Stocks and Shares '.' ..-..'.-.-...   Office Furniture, New York and British Columbia.

D. J. Matheson has been a resident  of Phoenix for nearly nine years, being the first instructor in the public  school here. In 1900 he was made  postmaster, which position he still  holds and conducts to the general satisfaction of the people. For three or  four,years he was also city clerk, thus  securing much valuable information  regarding municipal affairs. Last January he ran for mayor against Mr.  F umberger, being elected and serving  as chief magistrate of the city for that  term.  In the East ward L. Y. Birnie has  served the city as alderman for several  terms, having been a resident of Phoenix for some eight years. Mr. Birnie  is in the plumbing and tinning business here, and, like the mayor lives, in  his own residence.  Robert C. Carson is in the emplo>  of the Hunter-Kendnck Co., and  served the city last year as alderman  for the first time. He has lived here  some years and owns his own home in  Phoenix.  Francis Knott is now "serving his  first term as alderman. He has iived  here some years, and occupies his own  residence. He was in the employ of  the Granby Co.  A. D. McKenzie is the manager of  the Phoenix Steam Laundry Co.,  having been in this business ever since  coming to Phoenix, seven or eight  years ago. This will be his third term  as councilman from the west ward.  He has important property interests  here.  Wm. T- Porter has lived in Phoenix  about 12 years, and is one of the old  timers of the Boundary. He has  served the city as alderman from the  west ward several terms, owning to his  own home here, and being largely interested in valuable mining property in  the Boundary. 1  Theophil Biner, with his sons, is  the owner of the Phoenix Brewing Co.,  one of the sucessful business concerns  of the Boundary, and of the five  concerns of this kind in the Boundary,  this is the only one that has been able  to sell its product in every town in the  Boundary. Mr. Biner is taking his  seat at the aldermanic board for the  first time.  All of the Boundary coppers���Granby, B. C. and Dominion���have  strengthened somewhat this week on  the eastern stock;exchanges, probably  in sympathy with a slight improvement  in the copper market.  It is said that New York capitalists  have secured an option on the Maple  Leaf group of claims in Franklin camp,  with the intention of starting work  shortly, the force to be increased  materially in the spring.  . ������ Before starting for the east this week,  Manager McAllister of the B'."'C."  Copper Co.,, was asked if there was  anything to be said about when his  company was likely to resume operations, and he replied there was nothing yet.  \V. C. Thomas, manager of the  Dominion Copper Copper Co., who  was here from Boundary Falls this  week, stated that he had not heard yet  when the mines of the company would  be reopened, but was expecting instructions any time.  Shareholders have been notified  that the annual meeting of the British  Columbia Copper Co., Ltd-, will be  held at the office of the company in  Charlestown, West Virginia, on ths 11  day of February at 12 o'clock noon,  for the election of directors and for the  transaction of such business as may  come before the meeting. Stock transfer books will close January 31st at 3  o'clock p.m.,and reopen* February 13th,  190S, at 10 o'clock a.m.  Walter S. Cook and Tom Johnson  went over to Rossland oh Thursday's  train.  '��� A. Legault has been appointed  resident manager of the B. C. Telephone Co. in Phoenix, being a practical man in the business.  ' J. E. McAllister, manager of the  British Columbia Copper Co , leaves  Greenwood this week for New Yoik,  and he expects to attend the annual  meeting of the company, soon to be  held.  Martin Gillis, formerly a resident  here, but lately in the contracting business at Mullan, Idaho, was here on a  visit this week, being glad to get into  a country where he could get hold of  some real money.  Archie Aberdeen, the veteran prospector of some 76 summers, returned  last week from Goldfield, Nevada,  where he says there was not much doing when he left. He was in and  around Goldfield several months.  George S. Waterlow, who is so well  well known in Phoenix through his  connection with ihe Snowshoe mine,  having visited the property numbers of  times from his- home in England, is  spending the winter at Santa Barbara,  Calif., and will probably visit British  Columbia in April.  J. B. Henderson and wife, of Grand  Forks, were here last week to witness  the hockey game. Mr. Henderson  has been supervising architect for-the  West Kootenay Power & Light Co.  forrthe last two or three years. He: is  now working on plans for a fine residence for L. A. Campbell, the manager, to be. erected in Spokane at' a  cost of some $12,000.  Old Boundary Men Start Bank.  Articles of incorporation have been  filled in Spokane of the Br.'tish-Ameri-  can Bank, with a capital of $100,000.  The incorporators are Alfred C. Flum-  erfelt, Homer N. Galer and D. M.  Rogers. The first two are well known  in the Boundary, having been very  active in connection with the Granby  Co. some four years ago. Latterly  they have paid much attention to coal  mining in Alberta, and have made a  success of the International Coal &  Coke Co. and now taking up the  Alberta and Royal companies in the  same district. The International Co.  is now on a regular eight per cent  dividend basis, and on February 1st  will pay its regular quarterly dividend  of two per cent on the issued capital  stock. Mr. Fiumerfelt and Mr. Galer  are also largely interested in the British Americah Trust Co., with offices  at Grand Forks, Vancouver and Victoria, while Mr. Fiumerfelt is a director  of the Eastern Townships Bank. Mr.  Galer has recently taken up his residence in Spokane, and it is understood  the new banking venture will have a  chain of banks around Spokane.  -4 o  A 1902. for 1903, Tor 1904, for 1905, for 1906  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  rhe following table gives the ore shipments of Boundary mines Ict_19oo. f��i "'"'     '���---"  -nd 1907. k  Mink. 1900     1001       1902       1903  ��� 6^.553 331.762 309.85S 393.7'��  197       1.73'    ��,8oo    71,213  99.0J4  141.336 138,079  47.405    14.811     19.365  S.S30  650  1,300  1,076  2,250  $820,946.63  CREDITOR.

Pa|mer to England last fall, with a  display of British Columbia fruit, it  was one of the best steps ever taken to  bring the advantages of this province  to the attention of the residents of the  Mother Land, many of whom doubtless  desire to better their condition and dp  it under the  Union Jack.  We" who live in the Boundary and  know Mr. Burrell for the sterling, capable, straightforward citizen that he is,  were aware that a better selection wouid  have been difficult. And the results  thus far show that there is every evi-  ence that the money used has been a  wise expenditure. The fruit display  has attracted the widest and most fa v.  orable attention, and a great suprise  was expressed that fruit of such quality  js being raised in the Pacific province  of the Dominion. This was the experience at dozens of places in England where the fruit was exhibited, and  both Mr. Burrell and Mr. Palmer have  been kept busy explaining regarding  the matter.  It was a good stroke of publicity  when these gentlemen were sent across  the herring pond on this mission, and  should result in much practical benefit to this province in bringing in the  right kind of settlers.  The year 1907 was, 111 some re  .spec's, the most remarkable in -the  history of copper. During. the first  six months of it the demand for the  metal was so great as to be without  parallel, trie prices so high as to make  the smallest/ producing mine a most  valuable property/Then, without the  usual graceful warning, the bottom  fell out of everything; prices of copper  were split In two; mines were closed;  and smelters were put oil" of commission,  and copper became a drug on the market. What may be characterized as  the starting of this industrial depression  was the enormous fine of twenty-nine  million dollars imposed by a federal  court of justice upon the Smndard  Oil Company. That action started a  ball rolling which, before it got through  pirouetting, tightened up the money  market to the snapping point, putting  business in all lines out of business.  But that is ancient history, brought  down to date. Here is how copper  was affected; the figures, are the high  and low prices for each month of the  year 1907 for Lake Copper:  High  January    26  February    a6}4  March '.'...  26^  April    26  May.    26  June    26  July    26  August..........\ ....   22^  September.    18}4  October.  .......   15  November. ....'.���    15  December .'..... . ..... ...14  i4t?BRELAIKFAST  WliUNGH  DDTOBR  SUPPER  Always Acceptable  Always Delicious  were highest.

Wheii the Boundary smelters stopped  operations last fall, it was inevitable  that the collieries that supplied the  thousand tons of coke daily to the reduction works, would feel it. Added  to this.was the fact of a general slowing up���to call it by no stronger name  ���in - business < conditions everywhere  almost, thus cutting down the demand  on railways for carrying freight; and  - the western railways began to feel it,  and used less coal.  In the Crow's Nest coal mines this  was not felt at first, but the pinch is  coming now, some mines having closed  and others are curtailing since the demand began to slacken. Railways are  not taking nearly the amount of coal  they did last summer, as they do not  need it.  Nelson now claims a  population of  Fernie's   payroll   this    month    was  $199,684.

However, the  matter is undoubtedly interesting.  . ���������  Although   this   is   leap   year,   we  haven't heard of a  single proposal by  any member of the fair sex this month  in ihis  camp.    But   there   are  over  eleven months  left  in  the year, and  there is plenty of material here to work  on,    So, we may hear of something in  this line still.  <������  This week the Pioneer received a  subscription from Paris, France, accompanied by a, New York draft for  tin: price of two years' subscription in  advance. The United States and  Canada are well represented on our  mailing list, and the foreign 'countries  are also doing well in this regard. Incidentally, our' receipt book is still  doing business at the old stand.   .'  One of the best among the technical  mining weeklies has been Mining Reporter, of Denver. This paper lias  recently been consolidated with Ores  and Metals, another excellent paper,  and the combination, called Mining  Science, gives one of the strongest of  its kind in its chosen field. The  editor, H. J. Baron, has visited the  Boundary, and one would think he  would not locale Kootenay mines in  this section in his news columns, as  has been done, but probably those arc  slips that are likely to occur in every  newspaper establishment, as all publishers know only too well,  Among the many  accomplishments  of A. B. W. Hodges, local manager of  the Granby Co., is that of being an excellent musician���something his friends  have  been aware   of.    He   has   the  knack of making better  music on the  piano for dancing than  any two  average musicians, and the following  from  the Nelson Canadian, speaking of the  ball niveh there   last   week   to   the  attendants of the organization meeting  of the Western Branch of the Canadian  Mining Institute, bears it out:  "A very pleasing feature was a  two-step after supper,-played by A. B.  \V. Hodges, of the -Granby, president  of the newly organized western branch  of the institute. No better dancing  music was ever heard in Nelson, and  the repeated enthusiastic encores were  evoked as much by admiration of and  gratitude for the music, as by the desire to prolong the dance."  been accosted on the ' streets of Phoenix and importuned for meals. It was  a fact, nevertheless, and 'that same,  chap has since acknowledged that he  has been "touched" to the tune of  ���several dollars for this same purpose.  But with more men getting to work,  gradually, this condition will pass and  will he. again monopolized by other  and larger places.  Some months ago the Pioneer called  attention to an advertisement of the  North western Supply House, of Winnipeg, the business^ having been offered  to this paper and refused. Several  othei papers in the Boundary, however ran the business���and, incidentally, are still looking for their pay.  Recently, the manager of the concern  was arrested for appropriating money  sent by customers, numbers having!  suffered in this way. And thus endeih  Mr. Samuels till he bobs up again  under some other title, to fleece the  public.through the newspapers, which  are also fleeced.    It is a long lane that  has no turn.  ������  Persistence goes a long ways towards  ultimate success in this world, and this  fact is illustrated by the case of John  Dorsey, a man well known in the  Boundary seven or eight years ago.  Mr. Dorsey was in the hotel business  at various points, including Phoenix,  and was the first tenant of the Bellevue  hotel in this camp. But this was too  slow for .him, and he went into mining,  taking up some favorable prospects, including the Mountain View and Blue  Hell in Summit camp. Considerable  cash was put into them, but enough  was not available and Dorsey left for  the coast. Three years ago the writer  met him in Seattle, broken in pocket,  spirit and health. That spring he went  north, to where he expected the Grand  Trunk Pacific to build, in the Bulkley  valley. An exchange says that he has  done more than any one man to  exploit, i he resources of that valley, and  has now opened offices in Seattle, to  induce settlers to go into the valley.  Evidently, Dor��ey is once more on the  upward wave, and by the time the new  railway is built, will be one of the prosperous, if not wealthy, residents of the  Bulkley.

Many residents of the Boundary  will remember George H. Collins and  William A. Harkin, both now located  in Vancouver. Mr. Collins was largely  interested in ihe now defunct Golden  Crown and Winnipeg mines at the  time when they were thought by many  to be worth much more than the Knob  Hill or the Mother Lode mines. He  was also interested in the Athelstan,  and after the Montreal & Boston Consolidated took over that group, together with the Brooklyn group and  other mines in the Boundary now  owned by ihe Dominion Copper Co.,  Mr. Collins was the manager in charge  of operations.  Mr. Harkin was editor of the Grand  Forks Gazette for some time, and was  also interested in mining up the North  Fork, having been a well known denizen of the Boundary for years. Latterly he has been residing at the coast  city.  Both gentlemen have evidently forsaken their old love, as their name^  appear in the prospectus of the.Canadian Fish & Cold Siorage Co., to  operate at Prince Rupert and oilier  places, with a capital of $1,500,000  Mr. Coliins is treasurer and managing  director of the company, while Mr.  Harkin is its secretary. Evidently  ihoy believe there are just as good  fish in ihe sea as were ever   taken out.  For any disease of the skin we can  recommend Chamberlain's Salve. It  relieves the itching and burning sensation instantly and soon effects a cure.  This'salve is also invaluable for sore  nipples.     For sale by all druggists.  Creditable Piece  ot Publicity.  Through the courtesy of the British-  American Trust Co., I td., of which  A. C. Fiumerfelt, well known in the  Boundary, is president, we have received a copy of the pamphlet containing the five essays that were awarded  the various prizes in the Fiumerfelt  Competition. Each essay treats of a  sudject of special interest to British  Columbians and to those eyes are  turned towards the Pacific Province.  Ex-Governor C. H. Mcintosh whose  dissertation took the premier prize,  treats comprehensively yet concisely of  the Potential Riches of British Columbia. His composition is a com-  pedium of information and a fount of  suggestion. The decision of the judges will not be questioned by the  readers ol this essay. Other subjects  treated are "Mining" by Rosalind  Watson Young, "Timber"' by George  Elley, "Fisheries," by J. B. Clearihue,  "Capital and Labor," by L. V. Mako-  vski, and "The New British Columbia,"  by Agnes Deans Cameron.  The pamphlet is for circulation  freely among English speaking peoples,  and will be mailed upon application to  British-American Trust Company, Ltd.,  Vancouver.

The award of this* medal will' not be  in substitution for" the Albert Medal,  although not so high as for the Albert  Medal, shall be of a high and exceptionable order, and the 'grants will  therefore be reserved for such cases.

Is a dozen books in one, covering the  history, geography, geolcgy, chemistry,  mineialogy, metallurgy, terminology,  uses, statistics and finances of copper.  It is a practical book, useful to all and  necessary to most men engaged in any  branch of the copper industry.  Its facts will pass muster with the  trained scientists, and its language is  easily understood by the everyday man.  It gives the plain facts in plain English  without fear or favor. It lists and describes 4626 copper mines and companies in all parts of the world, descriptions running from two lines to sixteen pages, according to importance of  the property. The Copper Handbook  is conceded to be the  World's Standard Reference  on Copper.  .CW.V  " mill.       11.11.  MHS.A0DIE ilAHDINJ  PROBABLY every case ot conuiirnn-  tlon bogtrm with a cold.

At a meeting of the Greenwood  Board of Trade held on January 18th  and the following resolutions .were  adopted:  "That this Board of Trade regrets  the closing of the mines and smelter  of the B. C. Copper Co. Limited;  "That this Board desires to do all  in its power toward the building up  cf loyal, prosperous and stable mining  communities in this district, as in it  each member of the Board is deeply  interested;  "That this Board assures the B. C.  Copper company that the board is  friendly to the company, and that the  company can rely on the . hearty sup  port of the board and its co-operation  in any action taken by the company in  securing loyal, prosperous and stable  mining condiitons at its mines and  smelter: ~  "And that a copy of this resolution  be forwarded to the general manager  of the.company."  J. E. McAllister, manager of the  B. C. Copper Co., was sent for and  the resolutions,read to him. On being  asked to address the board, Mr. McAllister echoed the sentiment of Ihe  resolutions, and said he would place it  before his board of directors in New  York, whom he expected to meet  shortly. The resolutions stood, in  brief, for the conditions his company  intended to acquire, the establishment  of a loyal, prosperous and stable mining and smelting industry, and towards  this end it was in every one's interest  to pull  together.  At a second meeting of the board of  trade, the reply of Mr. McAllister was  endorsed, and it was decided   to  g've|'  the matter to the press for publication, j |  Special Bargains)  in Watches ..  23 jeweled movement, guaranteed timekeeper, in 25 year case       -       -_    $45.00  19 jeweled movement, 25 year case     -    1)5 qo  17 joweledmovenient, 20 year case     -     15.00  17 jeweled movement, nickel dust proof  case  10.00  These Watches are all Guaranteed  and will be exchanged if unsatisfactory  for any reason.

Next Monday evening the Greenwood Amateur Dramatic Club will present the new farce comedy, "Confusion" at the opera house, and there  should be a good audience to greet  them, as the members have already  earned the reputation of putting on an  excellent show.  Another reason for a liberal patronage of the representation;is that it will  be given for the  benefit  of the anti-  lubercolosis  fund   of the  province, a  sanitarium for this purpose being now  under   erection   at   Tranquille,   near  Kamloops.   Thus far Phoenicians have  not had a chance  to  do  anything for  this good cause, and the dire necessity  of doing something  practical  for   the  amelioration' of the  ravages   of  this  dread disease can hardly be stated too  strongly. -   ��� ' 1  The play consists of three acts, and I  is said to be exceedingly humorous in  parts. The, cast includes Randolph  Stuart, F. W. McLaine, C. F. Hawtry,  S. M. Tees, C. A. Thomas, R. S. Ross,  Mrs. H. F. Stow, Miss J. Beldon,  Miss E. Oppenheimer and Mrs. F. VV.  McLaine.
