A  dar year 1905 have just been furnished  to the Pioneer by J. E. McAllister, the  manager. The amount of ore treated  by the smelter for the full year  amounted to 210,830 dry tons, the  amount of custom ore received being  16,357 tons, the balance coming from  the company's Mother Lode mine in  Deadwood camp. The smelting tonnage figures for each month were as  follows :  Mouth. Tom.

The Mother Lode mine shipped  during the year 174,567 tons, the difference between tonnage smelted and  tonnage of ore received being made up  of material other than ore, such as flue  dust from storage, and in the reduction of ore stock.  E. L. Vaughan, of the Carcade substation here, is away on a vacation to  visit his parents at Victoria.  F. E. Starkey, of Nelson, commission merchant and political war horse,  made his monthly trip to Phoenix last  Thursday.  Blake Wilson, of Nelson, manager  for P. Burns & Co., Ltd., was a visitor  here Monday,- accompanied by J.  Ehrlich, of Greenwood.  Harry Sibley, of Vancouver, representing the Western Clarion, the  Socialist weekly, was in camp this  week, securing subscribers, in which  he was fairly successful.  A. F. McMillan, owner of the  Hotel Balmoral and other valuable  property here, was in the city last Saturday from Vancouver. He has opened a large jewelry store there, and at  holiday time had a dozen clerks. He  is now on his way to Amsterdam, Holland, to purchase a s'ock of diamonds.  Formed St. Andrew'f Society.  Thursday evening Bobbie Burns'  anniversay was fittingly celebrated in  Phoenix by the gathering together of  about 50 Scotchmen, or those of  Scotch decent, at the Hotel Brooklyn,  where a feast was spread and good  cheer prevailed until a late hour.  Speeches, songs and stories were given  in quick succession, and the health of  the Scotch bard was toasted heartily,  XV. G. Fraser being the chairman. L  )was decided to form the Phoenix St.  Andrew's Society, which was dune, the  following being rhe,.first officers of ihe  organization : President, William G.  Fraser; vice-president, D. W. McKenzie; secretary, Walter Morrison; ireas  urer, G. S. Gordon, M.D.  Mutters have been looking better at  the Oil) Donuro mine, Summit camp,  lately, and the shipments have been  materially increased, most of the ore  going over the Great Northern to the  Granby smelter at Grand Forks.

To the  Shareholder: In my last report  dated 5th ins'ant, I was unable to  give it-suits of shipments from the new  oie quarry (No. 4), which was opened  on the O10 Denoio claim just al the  end of 1905. Since then the assays  of six lots ot ore aggregating 965 tons  have been received, showing estimated  net profits of $z.75 to $8.45 per ton,  the lowest values coining from the surface ore Hist taken out and the highest  and last value from the face ot the  quany, which is being driven into the  hill, the face having at the lime of  c.\-  A find of $150 ore is reported from  the Strathmore in a vein eight inches  wide.  The Gold Finch tunnel is now in  over 225 feet, and good ore has been  reached.  Two diamond drills are still being  operated on the lower levels of the  Granby mines.  While repairs are going on at the  Granby smelter, but seven furqaces  have been in blast for several days.  Work on the Gold Drop ore bins is  being pushed along, and also on the  gravity tramway, leading to the ore  bins.  NEW COUNCIL  SWORN IN  Meets Twice a Month in the  Future  INVENTED BY  PHOENICIAN  Important   Device  for Mining  Men.  Patented Everywhere  S.  Williamson.  by   A.  On this page will be seen a cut of  an invention by a resident of I'hoenix,  which competent mining men assert  will be a great thing lor the mining  industry when put on the market. It  is a new fuse waterproof detonator, and  is the invention of A. S. Williamson,  who put in six years ol" practical work  in some of the largest mines of ihe  west. Mr. Williamson has secuied  patents on the device in Canada,  Great Britain and the United States,  and applications for patents are pending in Mexico, Australia, South Africa  and Spain. Thus far he has spent  over $2,000 on the invention, and expects to do well with it when it begins  to be used.  At present Mr. Williamson is negotiating with some of the largest fuse  concerns for the manufacture of the  detonator on a royalty basis, and expects the matter to be settled at no  distant date to his satisfaction, as several of them would like to secure it.  One claim made for the detonator is  that it will make a saving of about 25  per cent in the powder cost of mining,  as there will be much less waste in  missed holes. Another and more important feature is that it will, by the  same token, result in a much less mortality from mining accidents from  missed holes.  The Scientific American, of New  York, the leading authority of the  United States  in  its  field,   recently  had   the  following   to   say about Mr.  Williamson's detonator :  Invention ot Importance.  It is of prime importance that the  blasting material used in mines should  be the best obtainable, and thai the  caps especially should be peifect.  Many a miner has lost his life by drilling into holes which have missed fire  because the detonator was not absolutely waterproof. A fuse waterproof  detonator has been invented by Arthur  S/J Williamson, of Phoenix, British  Columbia, Canada, which is designed  to prevent the occurrence of accidents  due to faulty construction.  The cap has a charge chamber at its  outer end and formed at its inner end  with a pliable enlargement t.r thimb'e,  A, Fig. 1. The open outer end of this  thimble receives a fuse, C, which, as  shown in Fig. 2, is projected through  the thimble into the charge-chamber.  Encircling the end of the (use and  fitting snugly in the thimble is a rubber gasket, B. When the charge has  been inserted in the chamber A, and  the fuse C, and gasket B have been  placed in position, the thimble is  crimped so that the gasket is firmly  compressed around the fuse C (Fig. 3)  Displacement of the parts is thereby  rendered impossible. The cap is firmly held on the fuse, and the connection between the cap and tuse rendered absolutely waterproof.  The tool for crimping the thimble,  as shown in Fig. 2, consists of two  nivotcd jaws provided with matching  semicircular cavities. The lower  cavity has an opening at each side.  These openings are designed to receive  studs at the sides of the upper cavity.  In crimping the cap, the thimble is  laid in either cavity and the jaws  forced together, which causes the  thimble to be compressed, forming at  each side a welt-like projection, which  is subsequently bent over as shown at  D (Fig. 3), as the studs in the tippet  jaw enter the corresponding openings  in the lower jaw.  Caps are at present rendered waterproof usually by wrapping oiled paper  about the fuse. The construction of  Mr. Williamson evidently presents decided advantages over this very defective method of waterproofing the cap.  traction of that ore :i vjitical h.-uht ��� f  twelve feet. The values 1 f the last  two lots are based on the assay of the  company's as^ayei, the assays of the  smelter not jet being received. They  are also based on ihe present price ol  copper, although some of them are to  be sealed for on the price of copper  sixty da>s after sampling.  The results of  the   last   three   lots,  Nos. 140 to 142, are as follows :  Lot 140���'54-4 tons; estimated net  profit per ton, $4.30; total, $654.  Lot 14 r���164 2 tons; estimated net  profit per ton, $7-50; total, $1,231.50.  Lot   142���212.25   'oris;   estimated  net   profit per  ton, $8.45 ; total.   $1,-  800..      ...���   This last lot represents the shipments of three days. The output is  now 75 tons or more per day of first-  class ore, and will be increased this  week to over 100 tons per day. In  addition, arrangements have been made  to legin shipping 100 tons per day oi  second-class ore upon terms that I feel  will give a lair profit. The latter is a  class ol ore of which there appears to  be an abundance, but which heretofore  the mine, for want ol a suitable treatment rate, was unable to ship at a pro  fit. This arrangement gives an additional present value to the Oro Denoio  mine.  By the end of the month it is expected that 50 tons a day of first-class  ore can be shipped from a third locality which is now being stripped of soil.  If so, the expected output at the beginning of February will be 150 tons  or more of first-class ore and 100 tons  of second class ore.  To enquiring shareholders I wish to  say, once for all, that the company is  not trying to create any market for its  shares. It is offering none for sale ;  its finances do not require it. The  management proposes from time lo  lime to give the shareholders the facts  fairly as it understands them. Any  statements given out have been of facts  as they were really believed to be, and  ol what was intended to be done. That  expectations have not always been  realized in the past was due, just as  piesent results are quite beyond the  expectations of three months ago, to  that element of chance, of good or bad  luck, that exists and always must exist  in every mining venture. Personally  1 refuse, as I have refused for years, to  advise peisons to buy or sell mining  shares, and it is useless to ask my  i'dvice.  So far as the management is concerned, the price of Denoro shares  will be determined by the known facts  of the property and the public's appreciation of the same. Any favorable  circumstanees arising will be signified  to all shareholders.  The management is unable to say  whether the average net profits or ihe  increased tonnage will be maintained  for a lengthened period. Ii is really  impossible to tell; bui aitur just returning from a visit to the mine, I am able  to say that the mine looks well, that  there is a large area of fine-looking  ore (stripped of soil) that is being  quarried with the results staled above,  and in view of the contract for the  second-class ore, the outlook today for  the mine appears to be blighter than  ever before. But remembering that  ihe aphorism, " Never prophesy unless  you know," applies especially to mining, I do not don ihe robe of die  prophet.  The steam hoist at the Hungry Man  mine was completed a week ago, and  is working very satisfactory. Cross-  cutting to the vein is now in progress  there, and it is expected that in a short  time it will be reached.  I'he force at both mines will in a  few days total about 40 men.  The new cyanide plant for the Car-  mi mine, West Fork, has arrived at  Midway, and will be hauled to the  property.  On the Monarch, one of the Granby group, a shaft 100 feet deep has  been sunk and crosscutting is now  going on at this level.  The recent shipment of half a car  of ore from the Elkhorn went better  than $100 per ton. At this property  the new electric hoist, recently installed by E. G. Warren, of Greenwood, is  working with great satisfaction.  It is reported that John Moran, one  of the owners of the Big Copper, in  Copper camp, has contracted with R.  Meyerhoff, of Midway, for the delivery  of 1,000 tons of ore to the railway, for  the Greenwood smelter.  A report emanates from Grand Forks  that a number of North Fork properties, not recently worked, are likely to  resume operations in the spring, in  view of the poisible building of the  Kettle Valley Lines up that stream.  Over a million feet of timber will be  required for the new ore bins, etc., at  the British Columbia Copper Co.'s  Greenwood smelter, when improvements are started in the spring. Tenders are now being asked for the  timber.  As rapidly as possible the electric  compressor is being installed at the  Rawhide mine in this camp, and is expected to be ready for operations very  shortly, when the tonnage from that  property will likely be materially increased.  The Oro Denoro is beginning shipping a part of its output to the Boundary Falls smelter over the C.P.R. and  ulso to the Granby smeller. This is  in addition to the three cars daily going to the Granby smelter over the  Great Northern.  Last week's treatment record for the  Dominion Copper Co.'s Boundary  Falls smelter was a new record for that  concern, nearly 5,000 tons of ore being reduced in two blast furnaces.  Even better than this is expected to be  done. Some days 750 tons of ore are  treated.  If the Great Northern and C.P.R.  would get together regarding the hauling Idaho ore, Manager Drummond is  confident that he would be able to develop a large tonnage from that property alone. As it is, he can do nothing  with it, and the delay is holding back  a large feature of development and  shipping that might be going on.  Kane and McDonald for Commissioners.

Monday evening the first meeting of  the newly elected board of aldermen  was held at the new city hall, when organization was completed for the ensuing year. Those present and swoin  in were His Worship, G. W. Rumberger, and Aldermen James Marshall,  A. D. McKenzie, Edward Brown,  David Oxley and Michael H. Kane,  Julius Carson being absent.  The mayor appointed the lollowing  committees : Board of Works���Marshall, Carson and Kane.  Finance���Brown, McKenzie and  Oxley.  The following were recommended to  the government as members of the new  board of police and licensing commissioners : Alderman Kane and W. X.  McDonald, the mayor being a member  of these committees.  Upon discussion, the conncil authorized the mayor to employ a governmeut  engineer to ascertain as soon as possible the most feasible method of disposing of the sewage of the city, and  the cost of such a system. This was  in accordance with the recommendations of the medical health officers.  It was also practically decided by  the council that meetings should be  held regularly hereafter on the first  and third Wednesday evenings in the  month, and oftener, if needed. The  by-law will not be changed, however,  for the present. It was thought that  two meetings monthly .would be ample  to transact the business of the city,  just as it is in Greenwood and Grand  Forks. The council also intends to  arrange for having the first meeting in  the month the date for receiving and  paying accounts against the city. The  next meeting will be on February 7th.  HIS WORSHIP,  MAYOR  RUMBERGER.  Frederic Keffer, M.E., consulting  engineer for the B. C. Copper Co., has  been taking another trip into the Sim-  ilkameen to inspect the work going on  at the Apex group, not far from Hed-  ley, and at the Sunset, near Princeton,  where diamond drilling is being done.  The company has bonds on both of  these likely properties.  ������^���^'���������������������-���-���-���-O������������������ �����������������>��������������-���"*>������������� <  A JANUARY   27,   '06   .

Stick a pin in there.  In another column will be found an  account of how Phoenix may possibly  have a third railway���if there is any  foundation for the rumor. When the  Great Northern extension to Phoenix  was built, no one had the least idea  that we would see another line here in  the next decade or two. But it seems  that capitalists have an eye on Phoenix, and will not overlook it.  There can be no doubt but that the  payment of that dividend of $405,000  by the Granby Co. last week, which  will doubtless be followed by others  this year, is the very best advertisement that the Boundary ever had. It  is a kind of demonstration that pleases  the people that put up the cash, and  that is what counts. We can stand  more of this kind ol advertising. Let  it come as soon as may be.  It is not a little amusing to watch  the tactics of the opposition at Victoria. Anything done by the government is,' according to their attitude,  perse, to be questioned and criticised  ���and they proceed to act along those  lines with all their might and main. It  is mighty little that they can find to  hang a just criticism on nowadays, but  they trot them out, just the same. It  is love's labor lost, for the most part.  Why is it that interest in local  boards of trade is so easily lost ?  Those best informed and who have  observed will tell us that such organizations have been of the greatest benefit to the places where they are located, and yet it requires persistence and  patience on the part of the faithful  few to keep up the interest. Here in  Phoenix we had a board of trade that  did not a little for this place. In  Greenwood it was the same way and  also in Grand Forks, speaking of the  Boundary. Yet today, with the possible exception of the latter, the organizations are in a slumbrous condition,  if not quite extinct. Perhaps they  need new blood, but at any rate they  need a Stirling up, and business men ]  should realize that such organizations 1  are well worth while and support them  in every reasonable and possible way.   '  Opinion    of    John    Stanton,  Granby Director.  "The shortest way to sum up the  causes that led to the high copper  metal prices prevailing during the past  year is to say that ihere was not enough  copper to go around," said John Stanton, the copper expert, in New York  last week. "There was no fictitious  advance of prices, and the gain recorded for the metal was based on its  demand, the producer necessarily securing the advantage of the scarcity of  the metal that resulted in i8J^ cent  copper. Producers in the ni.iin.iie  now sold out to the month of May, so  that^immediate orders can only be filled  at higher figures. In addition to these  strong factors there is no stored copper  supply waiting to be disposed of which  might tend to curb the present quotations. Several months ago I forecast  20 cent copper, and I see last week  two carload lots were sold al that fig-  ore for immediate delivery. Just  enough to vindicate my prophecy.  "The outlook for 1906 is very good.  Of course, ultimately the prices must  be expected to recede somewhat from  their present levels, but I doubt th tt  you will see ij}4 cent copper till  perhaps the very end of 1906. Prices  should easily hold their present levels  for months, and any extraordinary demand would, without any effort, result  in a still greater advance in the market quotation. The coming twelve  months promises to be the largest copper-consuming period ever witnessed  in this country, judging from the large  orders the manufacturers report having  in hand.  "It is interesting to'note that fifty  years ago, in 1855, the total copper  output of this country was represented  by a production of 6,300,000 pounds,  while the 1905 output will show ever  900,000,000 pounds for this country  alone, without counting the Mexican  and Canadian production of about  110,000,000 pounds, which is almost  all handled through the New York  market."  NEW MAYORS IN  BRITISH COLUMBIA  The Seattle Post-Inttlligencer printed the following item regarding the  alleged intention of building a new  ine of railway from Spokane to Phoenix. The chances are that the Post-  Intelligencer is somewhat mixed on  the proposition, although it is a fact  that Mr. Graves and associates have  formed the Inland Empire Railway  Company, with a capital of $20,000,-  009. Mr. White was formerly secretary of the Granby Co., but does not  now hold that position, Following is  the story in fu  A. L. White, secretary of the Granby Smelting Company, and C. Zimmerman, a consulting engineer of New  York, have been in Seattle for the past  three days after inakin.: a trip through  the Okanagan country and through the  territory between Spokane and Phoenix, B.C., in the interests ol the Inland Empire Railway Company, which  iroposes to build an electric line from  Spokane to Phoenix and also into the  Okanagan mining distiict.  The Inland Empire Railway Com  pany is a Spokane corpoiaiion recently  organizsd by capitalists of that city,  with a capital of $20,000,000. The  men behind the new company are interested in large projects 111 Spokane at  the present time, and it is proposed to  consolidate three separate corpotations,  now doing business in Spokane and  that immediate locality. The companies which it is proposed to consolidate  are the Spokane Traction Company,  the Spokane and Inland Ry. Company,  the Coeur d'Alene & Spokane Railway  Company and the Spokane Tennit.a!  Company, and the names that appeal  in the articles of incorporation are the  heavy stockholders of these four companies.  Jay P. Graves is at the head of the  new institution and it is announced by  the interests forming the new electric  railway company that the consolidation  of the four companies has been practically accomplished.  No definite plans for the proposed  electrical line from Spokane to Granby  have been announced, but it is known  ihat the project is being considered  and that Mr. Zimmerman is lo make a  report to Mr. Graves at Spokane on  his investigations within a short time.  Messrs. White and Zimmerman left  tor Spokane yesterday.  Church Services Tomorrow |  Methodist���Class meeting at 11 a.  m., Sunday School at 2:30 p. m. evening service 7130 p. m.

The proposition of putting on two  night trains on the Spokane Falls and  Northern is receiving ttie serious consideration of railroad officials. The  matter has been taken up with officers in St. Paul, but no decision has  been reached. The plan contemplates  trains leaving Spokane and the other  ends of the line in the evening and  arriving in the morning. It is the  opinion of the railroad officials ihat  night trains would be well patronized  between Spokane and Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks and Republic. To  go to Spokane from Nelson, Rossiand  or other points on business requires  three days, two for the journey and the  layover in Spokane. If night trains  were installed the trip could be made  in two nights and a day.  New License Commissioners.  The following have been appointed  license commissioners by the provincial  government for the several license districts named:  Ainsworth���John D. Moore, Kaslo;  Hugh McPherson, Trout Lake; C. A.

R.'ri Bankhead mine is  producing 500 tons of anthracite coal  a day.  The Crjw's Nest Pass Coal Co. last  week paid $124,000 for December  wages.  The Britannia smelter at Crofton is  turning out ten tons a day of blister  copper.  Yale and Kootenay mines made a  record shipment of 33,764 tons of ore  last week, over 25,000 tons being from  Boundary mines alone.  The Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. paid  to the British Columbia government  during the year 1905, $57,978.85 as  royalty on coal and coke.  A careful revision of the mineral  output of British Columbia for 1905,  places the value at $21,400,000���a  clear gain of $1,400,000 over the previous year.  The new Blanchaid lead smelting  furnace, recently blown in at the Pilot  Bay smelter, is the first of its kind to  be used in British Columbia. It is  proving a success.  The Rossland Miner thinks the  Kootenays should produce $25,000,-  000 of mineral wealth this year or  more than last year's mineral production for the whole province.  D. C. Corbin, of the Spokane International railway, a branch of the C. P.  R., being built direct to Spokane, has  just completed the purchase of 17  square miles of coal lands in the  Crow's Nest Pass country for $roo,ooo.  The highest point touched by the  LeRoi shares during 1905 was 1 5-8  and the lowest 5-8. I'he shares at the  end of 1904 were quoted at 7-8, and  on December 29th, 1905, they closed  at 1 1-8, the gain tor the year being  thus 1-4.  The name of the new company  which will take over the Trail smelter,  Centre Star and War Eagle mines at  Rossland, and the St. Eugene mine at  Moyie, is the Canadian Consolidated  Mines, Ltd., with a capital of $5,000,-  000, and with headquarters at Toronto.  The company has just been incorporated.  The total amount of ore received at  the Trail smelter during the year 1905  was 227,000 tons. Ol this, 192,000  tons was from the mines of Rossland.  20,000 tons of copper ore was receivrd  from other sections, and 15,000 was  lead and dry ores. From the above  there was produced 82,000 ounces of  gold, 1,360,000 ounces of silver, 13,-  280,000 pounds of lead, and 4,520,000  pounds of copper.

And Boundary Mining Journal  Is published in the heart of the greatest and most productive gold-copper camp in the Dominion  of Canada.  In five years more than 2,500,000 tons of  ore  have   been   mined   and  smelted here, with a valuation of over $12,500,000.    And   the   industry   is.  only in its infancy.  The greatest mines of the Boundary are at Phoenix���not one or five  miles distant, but in front of, behind and beneath the Pioneer office. Consequently, from our vantage point we believe tlie Pioneer can give you the  best, latestand most reliable news of the mines and smelters of the Boundary.  The  Pioneer  is  worth #10  per  payable to the  W. & WILLCOX, Manager.  year���but   it costs  ouly  $2,   if tlie   coin comes with the order.

The Phoenix  Pioneer, with characteristic courage, ruts issued a splendid  holiday number, being a description of  the   Boundary mining country, mines,  smelters and   towns.      Few communities   appreciate   tho  enormous   labor  involved in getting out such a booklet,  with the comparitively limited resources  of even a well appointed country office,  and fewer still show theii appreciation  by buying up the issue.     The Poneer  deserves credit indeed   for   the   handsome typographical work, which could  not be excelled in the offices of a large  city.      The   number   consists   of  72  pages, with   100 engravings, including  five maps, and is   printed   throughout  on   book   paper.      It gives a comprehensive review of  the mining industry  in   the lower country, and   should   be  valuable   for   reference  to all contemplating   settlement in   that  region.���  Kelowna Courier.

The holiday number of the Phoenix  Pioneer is to hand. This year the  form is changed to the standard size  of page adopted by most magazines,  as it is more convenient to handle.  The number contains 72 pages, with  about 100 engravings showing local  views and several maps of various  parts of the district. The matter,  historical and descriptive, is well written and very interesting. In fact, the  number contains just what people want  to know, and every time a publisher  can turn out a number which accomplishes that end, he has made a decided hit.

The Phoenix Pioneer, with its usual  enterprise, has published an edition  containing a review of the mining industry in the Boundary district in  1905. The book is an excellent .specimen of typographical art, while the  literary part is interesting and admirably portrays the progress of British  Columbia's mining and smelting centre.  \V. B. Willcox, publisher of the Pioneer,  is entitled to the undivided support of  the residents of the Boundary district,  for they will derive as much benefit, if  not more, than the publisher by the  advertising the district will receive  through his efforts.���Camborne Miner.  The holiday number of the Phoenix  Pioneer is always a welcome visitor  on every editor's desk. It is an edition  de luxe with its fine paper and exquisite letterpress. As a comprehensive  publication of Boundary mining it  could not well be surpassed. Its handy  form and artistic makeup create a favorable impression the moment it is  taken in hand.���Similkameen Star.  A Conservative love feast was held  last week in Victoria, and short  speeches were made by several members ofthe party. The following were  the remarks on that occasion for the  member from this riding :  The member for Grand Forks, Geo.  A. Fraser, stated that his constituency  contained the largest copper smelter,  of its kind, in the world���-the Granhy.  On the authority of Dr. Ledoux of  New York he stated that the problem  of reducing low grade ores had been  more satisfactorily solved at Grand  Forks than anywhere else on the continent, and he was proud of a constituency which had established such a  record. Phoenix, the largest mining  town in the district, was extremely  prosperous and he was glad to s-ay did  not contain a single Chinaman or lawyer. (Laughter). Whilst he did not  wish to give the government all the  credit for this happy state of affairs,  they at least had not done anything to  check its progress as had bten the  case with Liberal administration.  There are not many places tn British Columbia where one can traverse the  main street of the city, and at one and  the same time hear the rumbling of  ore from three big mines into the cars  of two great railways���but that is wha'  happens in Phoenix daily. On Dominion avenue one can hear the loading going on at the Granby, Brooklyn  and Stemwinder mines.  PROVINCIAL.  Tlie special holiday number of the  Phoenix Pioneer surpasses all the previous efforts of its proprietor. The  issue completely coveis the Boundary  section. The statistical matter cannot  fail to convince the outside world that  we possess the premier mining district  of the province. The illustrations are  numerous and well printed.���Grand  Porks Sun.

" Forest and Mine" was the title of  a paper by Frederic Keffer, manager  of the Uriiish Columbia Copper Corn-  puny, Ltd., at the Canadian Forestry  Association meeting at Ottawa a few-  days ago. It was lead by the assistant superintendent of forestry. It is  said, among other things :  "There seems to be but one hope for  the forests, and that hope lies in an  intelligent supervision of the public  forest land of the country through a  permanent government department of  forestry, officered by men trained to  their work and familiar with methods  obtaining in European countries, particularly Germany, where forestry is  studied and practised. Miners and  projectors have no feeling for trees  and are frequently guilty of wanton  destruction."  R. A. Smith has been appointed  postmaster at Moyie.  The Victoria Golf Club will pay  $50,000 for its new links.  Twelfth annual poultry show was  held at Vancouver last week.  Vancouver expects to secure a branch  of the McGill school of mining.  Several towns in the Crow's Nest  Pass are to be connected by trolley.  Summerland, in the Okanagan, is  likely to be the location of a Baptist  college.  The B. C. Powder Co., Ltd., has  been incorporated with a capital of  $50,000.  J. D. McArthur, of Winnipeg, has  purchased the Moyie Lumber Co. and  vast timber limits.  Prince Arthur of Connaught, after  visiting Japan, is expected to arrive at  Victoria on March 28th.  Next Wednesday the Associated  Boards of Trade will meet in annual  convention at Cranbrook.  The C.P.R. is credited with the intention of electrifying its branches  around Vancouver this year.  Collier's Weekly says that Vancouver will hare a population of over a  million before many years.  Three births in Cranbrook last week.  As Old Man Simpson of the Herald  says, "Just watch Cranbrook grow."  In the hockey match between Rossland and Grand Forks on Saturday  night, Rossland won by a score of 6-3.  The grading of the 47 mile Nicola  branch of the C.P.R. is nearly completed and the rails have been laid for  about three miles.  Capt. Troup has anuounced the  name of the new C.P.R. vessel building at Esquimalt to be the Princess  Royal. This makes five coasters  bearing the name of Princess.  Miss Agnes Deans Cameron, recently dismissed from the public  schools of Victoria for alleged insubordination, stood at the head of the  poll at the recent election for school  trustees.  The fish and game clubs of Victoria  and Vancouver are making an effort to  introduce black game and capercailzie  into British Columbia, having already  been successful in acclimatizing pheasant and quail at the coast.  A pass through the Rocky mountains, the name of which has never  been mentioned in the public press in  connection with transcontinental rail  ways, is now being surveyed by the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway.  The Pacific Bank of Canada will  ask parliament to change its name to  the United Empire Bank of Canada,  to change its head office from Victoria,  B.C., to Toronto, and to increase its  capital stock from $2,000,000 to  $5,000,000, and to grant an extension  of time.

Miss Lillian Powell, Aurora, Ind., -writes:  "Last spring J caught a severe cold from getting my feet wet and being  out In the rain, and In a day I had a most miserable cold, hot I neglected It,  thinking It would soon leave me. But It hung to me for two weeks, when  I felt something must be done, as my condition was serious.  ''/ had beard so much about Peruna and In its praise that I bought a bottle  and began taking It regularly. I was gratified to find that In a week the  cold and cough was broken up, and three weeks' treatment completely re'  stored my usual good health. "���Lillian Powell.  Hovv - Consumption Develops.  Nin��e��i����of consumption oat of ton  occur In this way:  ' A petaon catches cold. The cold is not  properly cured, and another cold Is  caught.  '���' fPhiir cold' la dilly-dallied with, either  by no treatment whatever or some treatment that Is'ineffectual, and the cold  eontihugs."  Then another cold is caught and a  cough'develops. Cough syrups are resorted-to,-but they give only temporary  relief.  By ahd by-the patient gets tired of  taking modicines and cough syrups and  gives ub in despair.  The cold continues to develop and the  cough grows worse.  Then the doctor is called in, only to  discover that the patient is in the first  stages of consumption.  It was just In this way that Miss  Powell, of Aurora, Ind., became sick.  She caught a cold, and not considering  it serious, neglected it, thinking as  many others dd; that it would "wear off."  However, it clung to her tenaciously,  and in two weeks she found her health  in a serious condition.  Fortunately, Peruna had been brought  to her notice, and ahe took a course of  this remedy before it was too late.  In a week the cough and cold wcro  broken, and a three weeks' treatment  completely restored her lo health.  This is what Peruna is doing all tlio  while. Not a day, and probably not-an  hour passes In which some one does not  have a similar experiences with Peruna.  Cure the Slllht Colds and Avoid  Consumption.  The first step toward consumption ia  a cold. The next step J.s a failure lo cure  it promptly. The third step is the development of catarrh, which gradually  becomes chronic. The fourth step, the  catarrh begins to spread from the head  to the throat, then to the bronchial  tubes, and finally in to the lungs. It ia  then consumption in the first stage.  At any time during the progress of catarrh, from the first onBet of the cold to  its final settlement in the lungs, Peruna  can be relied upon to stop' the' disease.  If you have taken a cold, buy Peruna  without delay. One bottle in the beginning will do more good-than a half  dozen bottles after the catarrh mam  fastened itself on the lungs.

Instead, some of the Bobbie  Burns admirers celebrated the following day.  The Phoenix passenger service on  the Great Northern now brings up the  empties for the Oro- Denoro mine on  the incoming trip daily, and takes out  the loaded cars on the down trip in  the morning.  This week the weather has been  very soft, and the snow has been going  rapidly���something extremely unusual  for Phoenix at this time of year. Generally there are several weeks of fine,  clear weal her here at this season.  Putting in ice crops seems to be the  fashion nowadays. Murdock Mclntyre  is getting in a supply of Smelter lake  ice from Grand Forks, and P. Burns  and others are also in the same business of storing congealed aqua pura.  The St. Patrick's eve ball, to be  given by the Ladies' Aid of the Catholic church promises to be as much of a  success as those heretofore given by  this well known organization.

A canvass ol the hotels in Phoenix  shows that, almost without exception,  they are filled to the roof every night,  and most of the time are turning  people away who happen to come  along Inte on one of the universally  delayed trains. Several of the hotel  proprietors wish they had another story  on their houses, being confident that  they could be used to the best advantage. Just now the travelling men are  beginning to show up again after the  holidays, but they find it takes some  engineering to secure accommodations  So far none have gone without beds,  but there is no telling what will happen  if matters continue in the present  fashion.  Masquerade sad Trades Carnival Ball.  A masquerade and trades carnival  ball will be given in the new Mmeis  Union dance hall on the evening ot  February 21st, and will he under the  auspices of the Phoenix Trades and  Labor Council. Each business firm  in the Boundary is invited to send one  or more persons in costume to repre  sent it. Suitable prizes for costumes  will be announced later. The proceeds  of the ball will be donated to the  Miners' Union for the purpose meeting  the numerous claims for sick benefits,  amounting to over $i,5����. "used by  the late epidemic of typhoid lever.  The Miners' Union having been  under a heavy financial strain, caused  by the building of the new opera house  and hall, is unable to meet these  claims promptly, and as the money is  in most cases urgently needed by the  beneficiaries, it is hoped that the public will he generous in its patrona  the coming ball.  .e of  Application lo Transfer  Liquor License.
