'-  SEVENTEENTH YEAR  Disposal of Patriotic Fund  A review of a letter in possession  of Secretary.. Freeland, Phoenix  branch Canadian Patriotic society,  gives many interesting details in  connection with amounts received  and promised by the 30 branches in  the province.  Rossland for. instance has  promised $25,000 a year, Trail $20,  000 and Cranbrook $18,000. Thus  it will be readily seen that Phoenix  stands well with an appropriation of  $24,000.  Last month the secretary, who is  a live wire in the cause, forwarded  $1500 to the Canadian Patriotic  society and $500 to (he Canadian  Red Gross in Toronto.

It was   not a  pleasant position   to   hold,   because  people were loo  ready   to   criticize.  No man was infallable; he was willing to   be  criticised,   not   caring  a  snap for the same.

He thought the aldermen present would bear him out.  Aid. Rogers said he was satisfied  with turn things had taken; didn't  see where better bunch could have  been got to do last year's work,  especially with limited finance. Re  his difference with Aid. Evans last  meeting,, his colleague, F. McDonald thought like himself they  had been slighted. He now felt it  was a misunderstanding.  Aid/ F. McDonald.reiterated the  previous speaker's views.  Aid. Almstrom said he did not  think the people took criticism of  late council seriously, lie was  willing to do his part to keep things  right.  Aid.   A.   Geo.   Evans   was    very  profuse in expressing his sorrow   re  his   difference   with    Aid.     Rogers.  He was sorry   they   could   not   see  eye to eye hast meeting.     However,  they understood one another   now.  Aid. D. J. McDonald said he was  glad to begin   with   the   old   bunch  again.     Re criticism, he thought   it  was coming   to  them   as   representatives of the people.     He closed by  wishing this year's activities be   unexcelled.  Aid. Biner said he had little to  add.

That the long crosscut tunnel being driven on the Noble Five group  up Cody Riilch, back of Sandon,  has encountered ihe Last Chance  lead is the opinion of Paul Lincoln,  manager of the Noble Five. A few-  days ago the crosscut broke through  into a lead-of very substantia! look  ing character, the distance from the  portal of the crosscut being about  2,700 feet. That the management  will now proceed to thoroughly open  up these two leads appears about  the logical thing to do, since every  indication goes to show that they  contain lower down extensions of  the big rich ore bodies that ma'de  both the Last Chance and the Noble  Five notable producers and dividend  payers of the early days. It may  take one, two or three years to  accomplish this result and place the  Noble Five among the list of heavy  shippers, but there is no reason to  doubt the splendid future that lies  before the Dunsmuir property.  At  W  THE  NEWEST  DISCOVERY IN CHEMISTRY  Worth Trying  Don't miss anything. If you  make a blunder, so much more experience to your credit; if you succeed, you're a winner. You will  profit either way, and life is awfully  short to miss a try.  This is a recent discovery of Dootor  Piorce, who is head of the Invalids'  Hotel and Surgical Institute at Buffalo,  N. Y. Experiments at Dootor Pierce's  Hospital for several years proved that  there is no other eliminator of uric acid  that can be compared to it. For those  easily recognized symptoms of inflammation��� as backache, scalding nrine  and frequent urination, as well as sediment in the urine, or if urio acid in the  blood has caused rheumatism, it if  simply wonderful bow surely "Amine"  acts. The best of results are always  obtained in cases of acute rheumatism  in the joints, in gravel and gout, and  invariably the pains and stiffness which  so frequently and persistently accompany the disease rapidly disappear.  Go to your nearest drug store and  simply ask for a 50-cent package of  "Anuric," manufactured by Dr. Pierce,  or send 10 cents to Dr. Pieroo for ��  large trial package. If you suspect  kidney or bladder trouble, send him a  sample of your water and describe  symptoms. Doctor Pierce's chemist  will examine it, then Dr. Pierce will  report to you, without fee or charge.  Note : ��� French scientists affirm thai  "Anurio" is thirty-seven times more  active than lithia in eliminating nrit  acid/ and is <a harmless but reliable  chemical compound that may bt safely  given to children, but should be used  only by grown-ups who actually wish to  restore their kidneys to perfect health,  by conscientiously using one box���or  more in extreme cases ��� as "Anoric"  Robt.

The rapid rise of copper within  the past two months and the belief  that it will remain above twenty  cents for some time to crfme, has  resulted in the miners throughout  Montana, at Butte, Anaconda and  Great Falls, getting a voluntary increase of twenty-five cents per day  from the mine owpers, who are  reaping huge profits from the demands for the red metal.  The order for ,^ie increase in  wages to the Montana miners, which  went into effect recently, applied to  upwards of 25,000 sturdy laborers  in the mines of those sections.

Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  : potentialities as the above.   The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there  are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal. 7;  7     * ?  FOREST AND Ml ERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretchos are among the richest in' the province, and what is of great  importance, easily accessab'le to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  Just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former eamp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks t�� a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof is wanted of tfae  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  ofthe province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING CENTRE  The possibilities ofthe Boundary as an  agricultural and fruit-growing centre,  are also worthy of investigation, and  a visit   to  some  of its   spendidly equipped orchards will prove a reve ation to the stranger.     The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the' motorists paradise, millions having-'been  spent on the constructic n of government roads.

Perhaps the old council  were unable to define this alleged  human, so here goes:  A pimp is one who provides  gratification for the lust of others; a  procurer; a pander; to procure  women for the gratification of  others' Justs.  |     B: C.

Barring Aid. Almstrom,   the  c?ne   new  member, who is to be commended  for his daring in venturing^to assist  ih; moulding  the. ^destiny  of \ civic  |��ff��rs^tfr 19i6;lthe   old   members,'  ^cording to their remarks, are^of a  mind with   the  mayor in  agreeing  that.. last   year's   endeavors    were  highly     commendable. -   However,  Aid. D. J. McDonald evidently was  not wholly of a mind with the  chief  executive, and it is pleasing to note  that he has the manhood   to  admit  criticism was coming to them.  Aid. Almstrom's remarks to the  e(ffect that he did not think the  public took criticism of late council  seriously are worthy of notation.  His views, undoubtedly, will change'  when he has been initiated into the  mysteries of civic government.  The remarks made by, the chief  executive that they were not infall-  able, and that he cared not a snap  for criticism are- worthy of note.  As far as infalability goes, last year  proved the council anything but  tin gods. It is given to all of us  to select such gods as we mayivish.  Some people select gods of wood.  However, for 1916 we have a  self-nominated[and self-elected city  council, and it will be of interest to  many to see how they conduct the  affairs of the people.  ';  ��   Now that Phoenix has  a  council  to look after the welfare of the  city  In the shelving of the financial  statement of last year's council till  the next meeting, our present self-  nominated and self-elected representatives have made a bad start.  To think that the managers of a  large corporation should think so  light of this important document is  to be deplored.,,  " The fact that it was only laid over  until the next meeting does not  prevent it from being still further  tabled indefinately.  Perhaps this costly document,  secured at the expense of $100, may  yet find a resting place .in a glass  bottle labelled: "A scrap of paper,  symbol of peace and harmony in the  1916 council." '  In view ofthe  demand   for .zinc,  the Slocan Star Mines, limited, have  decided  on   making  extensive  im-!  provements- to  utilize  to   the  best  advantage, and while the market* is  good, the extensive reserves .of zinc  ore in the mine.     It is proposed   to  install a new power  plant  on  Carpenter creek, and   to  construct   an  aerial, tramway  between   the    mill  and  the   railway.    This   will   make  the mine independent of the shortage   of power   experienced    during  the dry season, and will reduce .the  cost of hauling ore   to   the   railway  and delivering supplies at the  mine  to an appreciable extent.  Inspector J. Newton, ofthe mines  department, after a- trip to several  of the mines in the interior, reports  general activity everywhere, with .  very few, if any, idle miners. He  thinks there is likely to be a shortage in the province before many  months.  John Cechlero has completed  his  contract of 150 foet of tunnel on the -  Hartney, New Denver.  Fred Falconer, formerly of this  city, is now living at Theresa, Sask.  He reports progress.  ,In-^ the" filling' of vacant seats  Wednesday evening on this year's  city council, it is now apparent that  it was desired, by the old, ^members  at least, to secure the office at all  costs.  How much more dignified it would  have ��� been had they refused the  office and insisted on their nominators calling a public meeting of the  citizens, rendering an account of  last year's stewardship, and asking  to be nominated by citizens other  than the four first elected.    _  The fact that the law allowed this  procedure is no sign that it was the  most desirable method. Still, it is  an accomplished fact now; accomplished at an hour when owls hooted  and old night reigned.  The Largest Piano  Tuning Business  In The West  for 1916, it as to be hoped  that  the  B  A conspicuous feature of the congratulatory remarks of the mayor  and aldermen last Wednesday evening, in referring to past year's  labors ��f the council, was the entire  absence of mention of the retiring  member.  From the dark ages . down to  present civilization, this has been a  feature of all love feasts. Why, oh  why, was this omitted? Its absence  was as noticable as a freckle on a  white elephant. It appears they  knew not his worth, but let him go  unlaurelled to the grave.  I got this by giving  satisfaction,  with years of factory jand other  valuable experience.-- It is  with  me   a   matter  of  business   conscience to have every instrument  at its best in fine action and tone,  regulating as well at tuning, giving an appreciative  ear, and all  with consideration for good music  in trueness and   beauty  of tone  that   is possible,' and   value   for  their money.
