I  I  I  PROCEEDINGS TO BE  TAKEN FOR TAX SALE  Of the Delinquent Properties  : Within City Limits   1  Mayor D.; J. Matheson and Aldermen A. Almslrom, T. Biner, PVJ;  Cosgrove and C. A. Ross were present at Ihe regular meeting of the city  council on Wednesday evening.  The auditor's report for the city of  Phoenix, which appears elsewhere in  this, issue of the Pioneer, was presented and read, and on motion of  Aldermen Ross and Biner, the report  was accepted.  The delinquent tax list of the city  was given the consideration of the  council and it was decided to take  proceedings for the .holding of a tax  sale. It was moved by Alderman  Cosgrove and seconded by Alderman  Ross, that the collector mail to the  last known address of every person assessed on the city's tax roll, whose  taxes have become delinquent, and  that interest at the rate of eight per  cent per annum will be added until  paid or recovered; and if said taxes are  not paid within three months from  date of said notice the lands of said  person will be-liable for sale, and that  no further notice will be given, except  by publication in the British Columbia Gazette and the Phoenix Pioneer,  as provided by the municipal clauses'  act.  John Mclnnes addressed the council requesting a donation towards the  public library. The matter was dib-  cusse-l ani laid over till the next meet,  ing of the council.  The chief of police was permitted to  rent rooms in the Rumoerger block at  his own expense, and the city will supply him with a telephone. .  The clerk was instructed to write D.  Whiteside for advice as to who is liable  for the costs in the Cosgrove appeal  case.  The following accounts were passed:  McElroy Bros    $15 06  T. R.

That the whole  article is a malicious slander on Phoenix every one of the 500 spectators  who saw the game can testify. That  the Grand Forks teim delivered the  "rough house" goods'is" evidenced by  the fact that one Phoenix player is  now in the hospital and three others  were under medical attendance as a  result of the game. Hockey is no  ga'me for babies���and such a woeful  whine from a team that starts "rough  house" tactics indicates the calibre of  the Gazeite's pets The Gazette's  jealous concoction follows:  " That our local boys did not win  was due to their playing seven men  against eight, the said eight including the Phoenix referee. The main  features of the game were the rough  s'.ufl- handed out by the Phoenix players arid the total inability of the Phoenix referee to handle a hockey match.  As a result of this every one of the  Grand,Forks players was more or less  used up with, injuries for which not a  single punishment was meted out.  This tendency for roughhouse play as  exhibited by the Phoenix team on  Wednesday has done more to injure  hockey than appears on the suiface,  and fair minded people refuse to witness another such ixhibition as war  dealt out on Wednesday last. Suffice  it to say. that so far is Grand forks  team is concerned,'Mr. Cook has te  fereed his last game, and there is no  doubt that he will be permitted to  retire." ���          Columbia Qrafapbone  E. A. Black has been making a particularly attractive display of the Columbia grafaphone and records. Mr.  Black has had a good run of these  machines this season, and included one  of the largest on the market. The  Columbia grafaphone have about attained perfection in the reproduction  of the human voice and the records  manufactured in connection with rhe  machine are of the best. Next week  Mr. Black will have a Columbia gra-  fonola on exhibition ; this machine received the highest award at the A.-Y.-  P. exposition for voice and instrumental reproduction.  Slull? Company Coming  The Stuttz Theatre company, headed  by J. G. and Aggie Marion Stuttz,  open an engagement in the Phoenix  opera house next Monday evening. J  G. Stuttz has been touring this part of  the country for over a quarter of a  century and is always able to return  and get a good audience. Next Monday evening the company will present  "Was She to Blame," and on Tuesday  night the attraction will be "The Celebrated Case," or the "Battle of Fon-  tenoy."  W. B Willcox, formerly editor of  the Phoenix Pioneer, is now connected with the Franklin Press job  printing office in Spokane.  ���'���' Preparations are being made for the  installation of steam-operated drills at  the Argd tunnel.   777  ; H. V. Fuller is ^making arrangements to resume operations on the  Bay mine, in Skylark*camp.  Shipments from the Snowshoe mine  were interrupted this .week by- repairs  being made to the hoist and are consequently only about half, the usual  tonnage.  ��� 7  Superintendent Duncan Mcintosh  has resumed operations on the big  Greenwood-Phoenix bore, eight miners,  nine muckers, two ^compressor men  and two steel sharpeners being employed. With the'new compressor  plant operating the management expects to drive about 12 feet per day.  The Engineering and Mining Journal states in its review ofthe trading  in mining stocks on, the Naw York  Curb during 1909, that there were  sold on the Curb 233,956 shares of  the British. Columbia Copper Company .Ltd.'s $5 stock. The price on  the first trading day of the year was  $8.50, the highest reached was $9 and  the lowest $5.87^, while the price oh  the last trading day of the year was  $8.12%. -;  H. B. Walkem of,Vancouver, consulting engineer in j charge of the  Canadian Pacific's new branch ;line  being built irom Phoenix to Wellington  camp mines arrived .in t'ie city on  Thursday, accompanied by Contractor  W. P. Tierney of Nelson. The continuing of the railway, to the British  Columbia Coppei.'s Lone/Star mine in  Washington is how under consideration, and an '-.announcement will be  made in a few days.  '7'  New York Copper  Curb:    British  Columbia shaded off slightly and closed  at &}i  bid,   8^   asked,   following; a  definite   report  that   negotiations  for  control  of this property  by  Granby  interests had proved 'a -failure. -This  proposition'is big enough to  make a  big stir in the copper world as an independent entity  and' should command  much higher   prices in   the  resilient  market for copper shares which we are  convinced will  prevail during the closing weeks of January ' and for months  to come. , "  ._���     ..   ,    ...** 1 ���  In the supreme court at Vancouver,  the application of J. D. Sperice and  John Seward to have the liquidator of  the Dominion Copper company discharged 'was set aside. Permission  was granted the, liquidator, to call a  meeting ofthe creditors of the company, the date of" which shall be announced in New York, Toronto and  Phoenix newspapers. The application  of the liquidator to be allowed to take  action in the supreme court of New  York against the directors of the Dominion Copper company was held over  in order to allow the defendants to  procure additional affidavits.  PHOENIX HOCKEYISTS  DEFEAT GREENWOOD  Exciting Game at Greenwood  on Monday Evening  The Phoenix hockey team strayed  into the puckyard at Greenwood last  Monday evening and scored a victor)  of two goals to one over the team ol  that city. Although the ice was ver>  soft both teams played excellent ho�� key  and the large number of spectators  present from Grand Forks, Phoenix  and Greenwood saw one of the best  games in the Boundary this season.  The game throughout was excep  tionally free from rough play, and such  exhibitions not only tend to raise the  standard of hockey, but go a long way  in stimulating general enthusiasm in  the game in the Boundary. Visitors  from Grand Forks were able to witness  the fact that the Phoenix team plays a  gentlemen's game when playing with  gentlemen. Bert Lang was referee  and won the esteem of both teams by  his impartial decisions.  In the first half each team scored  one goal; but in the second half the  home team failed to locate the net  while Phoenix added another goal to  its score,  follows:  Phoenix  McQuerrie  Sims  McKelvey  Clark  Clothier  McQueen  Neill  Legislative /w x  No. 10  Boundary Side Lights  The  teams lined  up  as  Greenwood  Watson  ' Russell  McDonald  Bloomfield  ���...-....

As each of these  teams has already defeated the other  on their opponents' ice this season, it  is recognized that they are pretty  evenly matched and a good game on  Feb. 2nd is looked for.  The standing of the three teams in  the Boundary league to date is as  follows:  Greenwood won 2   ... lost 1  Phoenix "    2    "2  Grand Forks "    1    "2  Grand Forks Ladies of the Maccabees will give an at-home on Feb 2nd.

Greenwood defeated Mother Lode  4 goals to 2 in an intermediate hockey  ���match a few days ago.   7 -7 7  An addition has been built to Greenwood skating rink for the accommodation of spectators at hockey matches.  A health officer has been appointed  in Grand Forks to examine monthly  all pupils attending school in that  city.  Owing to mildness of weather, the  Nelson bonspiel, which was to have  been held this week, has been postponed. -������'  Fruit trees in the West Fork valley  are wintering well, and, the younger  trees  should make-substantial growth  next summer.  . .....  .

BrttUta Election  ���  London, Jan. 26.���The combined  strength of the liberal, labor and nationalist-coalition has .reached 345 tonight or more than half the number of  members of the house of commons. A  unionist government, therefore, is out  of the question  and  the  only point  still undecided'is the exact strength of  the coalition   majority.    But as an in  dependent  majority is  equally out of  the question, only a  short  life can be  predicted   for. the   incoming  government, and as a matter of fact, both the  liberal  and   the  unionist   parties   are  looking away  from  the present struggle in  to the not distant future when  the conflict at the polling booths will  be  renewed.    The    strength   of   the  parties follows:  Unionists. 255 gains  Liberals   233 gains  Labor   38 gains  Nationalists    74 gains  Mr.' Jardine has  joined the Socialists  A chapter ofthe Royal Arch Masons land leaves Mr Brewster the lone Lib-  has been instituted in Grand Forks.

Smith, the Isaac Walton of  the Boundary, who left Phoenix fcr  the south early in December, writes  the Pioneer under date of Jan. 23rd,  that he is now located at Lowell, Arizona. "Cap" says there is no curling  in Arizona, which is the home of the  cactus, with 67 varieties. At time of  writing he was sitting on a veranda  with his coat off, enjoying the evening  zephyrs, which were a pleasing change  from the winter breezes at Phoenix.  When summer comes, however, he  expects he will be wishing himself  back in the old town in the Boundary.  He also says he is enjoying health and  has gained eight pounds.  A PROFIT-SHARING  SCHEME FOR MINERS  B.C. Copper Has Plans Under  Consideration  W. L. Mackenzie King, minister of  labor, has appointed a board of investigation and conciliation in con  nection with the dispute between the  British Columbia Copper company and  its employees. J. H. Senkler, barrister  of Vancouver, is chairman; J. A.  Mara of Victoria will represent the  company and John Mclnnes of Phoenix will represent the employees.  The British Columbia Copper management is now considering a plan,  which, if carried out successfully,  should tend to do away with the probability of strikes of its employees. It  is a profit-sharing scheme and two  plans are suggested, either or both of  which may be adopted. One is that  the employees shall have the right to  subscribe at par for a certain amount  of the treasury stock, and the other is  that a sc^le of wages be put into force  which shall be adjustable lo the price  of copper.  The company will hold its annual  meeting in West Virginia next month  at which time it is expected there will  be some changes made in the board  of directors.

On Saturday  the temperature rose to 68 in the  shade, rain fell continuously on Sun  day, and wheels were in evidence on |  the streets on Monday.  "If any citizens of Phoenix saw a  hockey match in that city on Wednesday (19th), they saw more than the  excursionists from this city did-"���  Grand Forks Gazette. The Gazette  is evidentally of the opinion that the  team from the Gateway city doesn't  play hockey.  The twelfth annual convention" of  District Association, No. 6, Western  Federation of Miners took place last  week at Trail. Geo.

' The Porcupine Lake district,''in  Northern' Ontario, .which is being  flaunted as the coming goldfield of the  continent, is, now receiving the attention'of eastern journals, and the Department of Mines has > issued a warning to the investing public. It is not  that the.mineralization of that region  is incredulous. The evidence of ore  bodies is too well attested' to be de-  -' ' nied, but whether the ore is of merchantable or smeltable quality,, whether  . it is a mere surface enrichment or per-  sists at depth, are questions > for which  - there are at present no authentic an-  , ,- swers.

It is a delusion  ��� that has,; led j to more foolish investments than almost any other.  The Monetary Times, in a Jengtby  article, refers scathingly to the class of  ���engineers who,- if <sufficiently paid, are  ready to, lend their name to any kind  pf a report on a prospect to be used for  - prospectus purposes, and regards the  letters   "M.  E." trailing   after   their  1 names as signifying simply "Mining  Enthusiast.!'   The .Times   continues:  ' ''.It would, be refreshing if : the, reputable mining engineer were allowed, to  - play his proper role in the development, if such there is to be, of the  Porcupine gold district of Ontario. If  his opinion were solicited and given it  would be the best and most convinc1  Jng strangulation of the'wildcat company .promoter.' The reason his advice ' is not 'often seen in print is be-  cause.he too frequently tells the truth,  The unprincipled stock seller has no  * iwe^for^a,professional report- which  does not smack of the bonanza vocab-  ' iilary.',, The legitimate mining engineer makes his report fit the mire.  The. gambling fraternity desire the  mine to be brought up to the standard  - of a,highfaluting report."  \ " '  :jr A  proposal is before   the Unittd  States Congress looking to preparations for * a fitting celebration of tl e  fiftieth anniversary of Lincoln's pro-  > clamation emancipating the negroes of  the South. This anniversary will  come in 1913 and it is proposed to  mark the event by an exposition to be  held in Savannah illustrating the advance of the negro, educationally, in  dustrially and otherwise.  of the  Wonderful  Fer lllty  wsstorn Pr.vlnoos  Sir Wilfrid Lnurier, premier, spoke  before the National Club, at Toronto,  on January 7th, and among other  things had the following to say of the  North westrn portion of the Dominion  of Canada:  "For a long time, for many years,  for generations, it .has been supposed  that the navigable part of Canada' was  confined to the River St., Lawrence  and the Great Lakes. It Was known  in those days "that there existed be  yond the "Lake of the Woods and east  of the Rocky mountains a vast stretch  of rolling plain, which were then  roamed over by herds of wild animals.  But the opinion prevailed that while  our soil might be good for agriculture,  yet because of our climate wheat and  cereals would not mature. I could  quote to you from a pamphlet published more than forty jears ago by  the eminent Tache, who from the  most early times had been one of the  foremost men of his nation, in which  he asserted that the valley of the Red  River and the valley of the Saskatch  there are 100,000,000 bushels of  wheat waiting for exportation.  "When Sir John A. Macdonald introduced legislation for the acquisition  of the territory from the Hudson Bay  company, although he had behind him  the strong support of George Brown,  there were many shakings of the head  and many thoughts that he" was purchasing a wild elephant. If,ever a  policy has been justified by events it is  that policy. It has contributed largely  to make Canada what it is today���the  pride of the world and of the British  Empire.

Used to Suffer, but  This is the experience of a lady who  used to suffer from this terrible ailment, but found a cure. The writer is  Mrs E. Boxall, of 97 Scott St, St.  .Thomas. She says: "I consider it  my duty to write of the benefits derived from using Zam Buk. For some  months I was a constant sufferer from  bleeding piles. I used a great many  ointments, but got no relief until I  tried Zam-Buk. It cured me, and I  have had no return of the trouble.  Since my cure I have advised several  others suffering from piles to use Zam  Buk, and in each instance have had  satisfactory results."  If you suffer from this ailment apply  Zam-Buk at night before retiring, and  you will be satisfied with the trial! A  contributory cause of piles is often  constipation, and a mild laxative will  greatly aid the operation of Zam-Buk.  For fistula, inflamed patches, and sores  due to blood poisoning, etc, Zam-Buk  is equally effective. It is a southing,  cooling balm, which stimulates the  cells beneath the epidermis and epith  elium to natural action. It relieves  the tension which in the case of pile-,  causes such acute agony, and in all re-  pects will be found eminently satis  factory.  Zam-Buk is also a cuie for ec/emn,  ulcers, ' cuts, burns, bruises, rashes,  chapped hands, frost bite, cold sores.  bad leg, etc. All druggists and stores  sell at 50c. box, or post free for price  from Zam-Buk Co, Toronto.

TURANO, Proprietor  RIONDEL MAY BUILD  NEW ZINC SMELTER  Canadian   Metal  Co.'s President Discusses Prospects  "Canada may have an entirely new  industry," says the Cranbrook Herald,  "as a result of a visit now being paid  to East Kootenay, H C, by Eduardo  Riondel,an eminent financier of France,  who is president of tin' Canadian  Metal company, which operates the  Blue Bell mine at Riondel, B.C. The  new industry, if it materializes, will be  the establishment, piohably at Riondel,  of works for the teduction of zinc ores  into zinc oxide, a property similiar to  white lead, used in the manufacture of  paint.  "Some years ago the Canadian Metal  company became interested in the zinc  mining business of East Kootenay and  built a zinc smelter at Frank, intending  to manufacture spelter, but the plant  did not prove a success and a change  of management coming in it was decided to abandon the idea of smelting  zinc ores in Canada and the smelter  there has been dismantled.  "Since the abandonment of the  'smelling idea, the zinc ores of East  Kootenay, o". which the mines of that  district yield large quantities, have had  to be marketed in the States against  a 20 per cent, duty and a freight rate  for more than a thousand miles. Thus  the profits of mining zinc are so greatly diminished kthat some means of  rendering the business reasonably profitable is being sought. Mr. Riondel  stopped in Frank the fust of 'he week  en route to . ast Kootenay fiom Paris,  and stated to a prc-s correspondent  that he had an interview in the east  with Professor Ingalls, the noted expert in zinc and that- Professor In-  galls strongly recommended the reduction of, zinc ores to z.nc oxide? as the  best solution of the problem confronting the zinc industry in Kast Kootenay.  Mr Riondel will ^o thoroughly into  the question and should he find Prof.  Ingalls' conclusions correct and that  the process be proposes will yield  better profits than may be obtained  otherwise, he will establish a plant  somewhere in East Kootenay, but  most probably at the town which bears  his name and where the Blue Bell  mine is situated.  Ntw Arrow Lake Steamer  Capt. J. C. Gore and David Stephens, superintendent and chief engineer respectiv-ly on the C.P.R. lake  and river service in British Columbia,  have gone to.Toronto on business in  connection with the placing of contracts for the steel hull and machinery  for the new Arrow lake steamer.  The   new   steamer   will   cost somewhere   in   the   neighborhood  of $120  000 and is   expected   to   be  ready for  the 19 r 1 summer travel on the  Arrow  laki-s.  An addition to the passenger fleet  on Kootenay lake is also contemplated  but this will probably be left over until  such time as the Arrow lake vessel is  completed and has gone through her  trials. .  ." ���   .  An Amailng Bel.ef  (Toronto  World)  "Is this Ontario of ours to be one  of the .greatest mining countries in the  world ? Productive of silver, of gold,  of copper, of nickel, of iron, of corundum, of many other metals? We believe it, and we believe that Ontario  is about to uncover one of the greatest gold fields known to history and  that 1910 is to see one of the greatest  gold fevers yet recorded find its centre  in the Porcupine fields in New Ontario, and Toronto the metropolitan  focus of the rush-���a rush that threatens to surpass' California or Australia  in their palmiest days.  What has Ontario done so far?  From one little, insignificant township, Coleman, and its still insignificant  town, Cobalt, twelve millions of silver  were produced "in 1909, and a great  deal more will be produced this year.  Cobalt is only beginning. There never  was such  a phenomenal  silver  camp!  One hundred and,  less, southwest of Cobalt is Sudbury,  the marvel of the world in nickel production knows its real production or  its real value. It is controlled out of  our country, its matte is refined in the  United States. But its output is said  to have exceeded last yeai $2,500,000,  and of copper over another million of  dollars. We believe this product sold  for many millions more.  One hundred and fifty miles northwest of Cobalt are the new Porcupine  gold fields, which, the World, after a  lot of investigation, after hearing the  stories of men who have been there,  after a hint and more of some of the  contents of some reports thereon by  conservative experts���and which will  in due course be available, and after it  has sent three special commissioners  to the district, is led to believe will be  the most active and surprising gold  field on the face of the globe.".  Irondale   Smelting   Co.   Gets  Title to Immense Deposits  of Magnesite  One hundred and" forty thousand  dollars has been invested in British  Columbia within the last few days by  James A. Moore, president of the Iron-  dale Smelting company. Of this  amount $60,000 has been spent in the  procuring of extensive coal measures  on Graham island, which, it is under  stood, are to be utilized and exploited  in connection with the large steel industry which the capitalist purposes  establishing on Vancouver island. Tl e  remainder, $75,000, has been invested  in the securing of the title to immense  deposits of magnesite situated just  back of the town of Atlin, one of the  most important mining centers of the  provincial interior.

Dominion Hotel,  By J. B. B)One, Manager.  Sure of the Sootch  A Scottish laird overheard some  Lowland cattle-dealers discussing the  use of "England" instead of "Britain"  in Nelson's famous signal, "England  expects that every man will do his  duty." According to one patriotic  Scot there was no question of the admiral's forgetfulness, and when his  companion expressed surprise at the  "injustice" the patriot reassured him,  "Nelson," he explained, "only 'expects'  of the English, he said naething of  Scotland, for he kent the Scotch would  do theirs."  "I THANK  dr. hartman  for pe-ru-na;  Awful Dsith Toll  The train from Montreal on the Soo  branch of the C.P.R., bound for Minneapolis, was wrecked near Nairn,  Ont, 33 miles west of Sudbury, on  Jan. 2 rst. Several coaches were thrown  into the Spanish riv&i, and it is claimed  that at least 48 people were killed and  92 injured. It his been impossible  so far to secure the names of the dead.  The cause of the accident, which is believed to be one of the worst in the  history of Canadian railroading, is not  known.  "I hardly know how to thank you for the good Peruna has done me.  "I suffered five years with pain in the stomach. About a year ago it became  to bad I could hardly bear it. I coughed day and nijht and grew weaketand  weaker.

RECEIPTS AND DISBURSEMENTS FOR THE YEAR  ENDING DECEMER 31st, 1909  BY ROYAL WARRANT, MILLERS TO HAH. THE PRINCE OF WALES  What is meant by  "Protein" in flour?  "Protein" in food is the food element that makes bone, muscle and  brain.  Pure flour contains more protein,  in most useful form, than any other  food���but'the floor must be pure.  Bran and shorts are waste^���if your  flour contains this waste, it is proportionately short in * 'protein."  Now, if you. buy an inferior, poorly  milled flour, you are paying for bran  and shorts, not "protein," and to that  extent you are wasting money.  RpYAL HOUSEHOLD FLOUR  is milled to make it the purest in the  world: therefore it contains most  protein, is most nourishing, is most  economical to use.   S  It pays the housewife to insist upon  getting "Royal Household" guaranteed flour, instead of taking a poorer  flour which the grocer may be inter-  este4 in selling  Ogil-vie's Royal HousetiQlff FJowfv  Cash in bank Jan.
