NEARLY ALL WERE IN FAV��R OF IT  Subject Thoroughly Discussed and a Committee Appointed to luve&izate and  Report Soon. j  If any man in Phoenix or elsewhere  doubts that a. majority of our, people-  are m favor of the incorporation of the  town i.no a municipality at the earliest  practical date, he should have been  present Thursday evening at tb,e public  meeting held in McRae Pros.! hall.  The roam was crowded w.ith representative business men and really holders. K'. C. Keith was selected chairman and W. li. Cochrane secretary.  The object of the meeting was stated, viz., to consider the desirability of  securing the passage of a special act by  the present legislature, allowing the  town of lMioeiiix to incorporate when,  the proper time arrived. When the question was thoroughly discussed pro and  con, it seemed to be almost or quite  unanimous that the requisite "steps for  this jniipose should be taken without  delay.' The speakers included .Messrs.  Hemenway, Rumberger, Prcakenridgc,  Kerr, Cochrane, Keith, Mack, Hunter, Graham, Morrin, Abbott, Weeks.  Stewart, Crawford, SancTersj Mills-,  and Willcox.  There was no question raised .by any  speaker but that incorporation} would  be wise in course-of time, and that  would probably be, in the course-ofjv  year. Others thought that iU should  be doneat thecarliest possible moment,  as it could not help being beneficial to  the town as a whole, serving to center  and crystallize business here; 7 The  owners of som? property ���who were  tearful of immedi."^e^ijci;eased^��'ati?jri,'  wcrO''''a^^tired'':thanor"tiiO':first''vL;ar''at'  Opened Under New Auspices,  Monday the dining room of the  Butte hotel was taken over anil opened  by Messrs Hawthorne .& Brown, who  arc experienced in this' line.

In .every way the gathering was a  harmonious one, and.all seemed to  be intent on doing., only that which  was for the best interests of'Phoenix.  It was merely a question of fhe best  methods of getting at it.  On motion of Wm. Hunter 7a committee of seven was appointed to take  up the subject, ascertain what territory  could be included by consent or approval of the owners, and formulate a  .plan of procedure, all of which should  be rejiorted to a future public meeting  of the citizens. The committee appointed consisted of Messrs. Kerr.  Cochrane, Keith, Rumberger, lilack,  Weeks and Mclnnes. It is already at  work,.and the members-have no doubt  whatever of being able to arrange the  matter in a way  suitable to the great  majority,- Another ��� public  meeting  will probably be called for some time  early next week.

The business of the company was  generally gone over the and directors expressed themselves as greatly pleased  with the progress and appearance of  the mine'to date. ���  On Tuesday the members of the  board, with Managing Director Collins,  and Resident Superintendent W.j.Porter visited the Golden Crown and inspected its workings, the visit proving  highly satisfactoyto all. At present there  are in tlie neighborhood of 2,000 tons  of ore available for shipment' to the  smelter, and as soon as-cars can be  obtained at -Hartford junction; shipments will begin. The ore will be  hauled in sleighs about a mile to the  track, which is not yet laid to the  mine. ��� . ���>,_���  The main' working shaft of the  Golden Crown is now down 320 feet,  with crosscuts at the 100, 200, and  300 foot levels. At tlie 100-foot level,  about 125 feet of crosscutting has been.,  done. At 150 feet a crosscut has been  driven and fine ore encountered. An  upraise connects the two crosscut:; and  a large body of ore has been'-blocked  out. On-the 300-foot level,; another  crosscut, now in some 350 fee.t, is.be-  iiig driven to strike the 01c body. .:.  Ore bunkers are to be construced  at an earlv date, and on the finishin'g  of laving steel to the dump, a season  of steady shipments of ore the smelter  is to be inaugurated.  position to state that no such orders  were ever given from Montreal... ^ To  set lhe matter at rest, and because of  .-she numerous imjuiries from those in  tending to build, who wished to ship  in material at the earliest possible dale,  L. C. Crawford, selling agent for the  Old Ironsides sub-division, wrote to  Jay P. Graves, general manager of the  Old Ironsides, Knob Hill and Granby  companies, who is how in Montreal.'

The long  railway   tunnel,   through  @  nc is- now afflicted with a  smallpox epidemic, there being reported to be some 40 or 50 cases in that  city,, though they are said to be of a.  mild type.  On account of the close intercourse  between American- points and Southr"'���  ern British Columbia, the provincial  authbrities'.-have established a quarantine at the border, which went into  effect last Thursday. Special''officers  were stationed at Midway^ ("arson,  Cascade, Sheep Creek- and Waneta,  and now all.,passenger cars, mail, baggage and express matter is thoroughly  fumigated at..the border. In addition  travellers must present ai health certificate or sliow that they havebeeh vaccinated since;Jan. 15, j 900, or submit-  to vaccination.  One immediate result is that numbers of travellers refuse to come across  the line at all.

Numerous complaints are da"uV  made now against the exceedingly poor  telephone service being : afforded to  subscribers in Phoenix by'the'Houndary  Creek or Sperry line. Since the Cor-  bin telegraph people were given the  use of one of the two through wires, to  Greenwood, the service has been worse pected  than ever,. and several ..'phones have  been ordered taken out.  Business men who appreciate: the  convenience of a good telephone system  are praying that either the Columbia  or Nelson ��\: Vernon people will .soon  put in a switchboard here, as they are  getting tired of paying $5,00 per month  tor a 'phone that does not work half  the time. Whichever one -of these  companies comes in-first with an exchange will do a good business from  the start.  It is expected that  the   new downtown building of the  Wynikoop-Stepb-  ens Trading Co. will be completed and  ! ready for use in a week or ten days.

The new district will doubtless inclpde  the territory from Camp McKinney tc  Christina Lake, and there is little likelihood of there being any Jack of legislative timber. In fact, there are several who are willing to sacrifice them-  j.eives for their country in this manner.
