Array I  Eva  m  fit  1  I  &  4  m  tn  I  MINERS STRIKE  AT GREENWOOD  Arbitration  Failed  an Agreement  m  Miners' Union Declares Strike  Against B.C. Copper  Greenwood Miners' Union on Satur  day declared a strike against the British  Columbia Copper company as a. result of the conciliation board whicli  recently sat in Greenwood noi having  come to a satisfactory agreement.  The Union issued the follow-n^ circular:  "Greenwood Miners'Union No. 22,  Western Federation of Miners' have  declared a strike apainst the mines and  smelter of the Biitisb Columbia Copper  company for the. recognition of Greenwood Miners' Union, and for discrina-  tion against its members.  'On June i, '907, Greenwood  Miners' Union and the manager ofthc  British Columbia Copper company  adopted a wage scale to be paid the  employees of ihe British Columbia  Copper company at their mines and  smelter In May, 1908, the manager  of the Birtish Columbia Copper company-reduced the watjes of his employees, atid from that time to the preseni  has refused to submit a copy of the  scale of wages lie is paying his employees to the Greenwood Miners' Union  and he has tried to disrupt Greenwood  Miners' Union by blacklisting our  active members. The properties of  the British Columbia Copper company  are closed down at the present time  and we intend to keep them closed  down until the management recognizes  the Greenwood Miners' Union. At  least 90 per cent, of the employees of  the British Columbia Copper company  before.ihe close down, were members  of the Greenwood Miners' Union.  The strike committee will notify the  public through "the press when the  strke is declared off."  The mines and smelter of the British  +Columbia.",Copper. .company-closed  down on April 30th through lack < of  fuel caused by the strike at the coal  mines in eastern British and no intimation of resump'i'm has yet been  given out'by the company.

Dominion Day Pat��e_ Quietly  Dominion Day passed off quietly in  Phoenix ; Granby mines operated while  employees of the Snowshoe took a  holiday, business generally being suspended. There being no special celebration in the Boundary a number of  local citizens hied themselves in groups  to the banks of the Kettle rivers, while  others spent the day in shady nooks,  Thursday's temperature being the highest this year to date, fireworks were  much in evidence during the   evening.  Qrrat Northern'- Aiiennneni Rcdaced  .The appeals of the Great Northern  railway and McRae Bros, were the  only complaints before the court uf  revision at the city hall on Tuesday  afternoon.  John S. Snapp headed a quarte'.te  ul legal re| resetitalives of the railway  company in appealing against over assessments'. The court cut $19,675  off the company's assessment of $65,-  125.

A number of candidates will be  admitted to the Pythian mysteries.  THE GRANBY AS A  SPECULATIVE STOCK  Prospects for Resuming Payment of Dividends  The Granby company should soon  be in a position to output 40,000,-  000 pounds of copper per annum,  says the Boston News Bureau. It  has completed the enlargement of four  of its eight furnaces, and now has a  smelting capacity cf 3200 tons of ore  per day. The enlargement of the remaining four furnaces will be done at  once, and when completed Granby will  have a daily smelting capacity of 4000  tons.  With only 135,000 shares of stock,  earning on this production should be  nearly $9 per share on i3-cent copper,  $12 on 14 cent copper and $15 on 15-  cent copp.r.  While it is enlarging its plant and  preparing its mines for a bigger production, Granby is temporarily off the  dividend list, though it is now producing at the rate of about 30,000,000  pounds per annum at a cost of about  10 cents. It will probably shortly resume dividend payments.  t ������������������' '  (Boston Commercial)  Granby, viewed from a speculative  standpoint, is one of the most unsatis  factory stocks on the market. It does  not go up on good news or down on  bad, but fluctuates without ryhme or  reason on'ari exceedingly small volume  of transactions. The. fact that Granby  combines the ownership of some very  big mines with a thoroughly progressiva  management, a. large and growing production, low copper costs and a very  small share capitalization, should make  the stock an exceedingly active and  attractive speculative force. It seems,  however, that a very large percentage  of the capital stock is owned by 15 or  20 individuals, and they pay no attention to its market movements, neither  buying on reactions nor selling on  rallies..  !Afterjbe par value of the stock was  changed, one new % too share being  exchanged-'for 10 $10 shares, thus reducing the share capital from i,i35r  000 to 135,000, there was for a time  considerable activity. Most of those  traders who bought it, however, lost  money, as there was a rapid succession  of labor troubles, fuel shortages, forest  fires which burned railroad bridges,  car famine_-\aHd>irm"o*e labor troubles,-  each of which in turn made it necessary to close down the Granby smelter.

COPPER BOARD  Adolph Lewisohn Acquires a  Substantial Interest  At a meeting of the directors of the  ��� British Columbia.Copper company iti  New York last Saturday Adolph Lewi-  sohri was elected lb the board ot  directors. i ; >  Mr! Lewisohn and J. Parke Chan-  ning, two prominent gentlemen of New  York.Wall Street; inspected the properties of the British Columbia Copper  company and other local producers in  April last. Mr. Lewisohn has acr  quired a very substantial interest in  B.'C. Copper, which possibly accounts  for the strength of the company's stock  during the period since operations were  suspended two months ago.  It is stated; that Mr. Lewisohn'3  election will probably mean an aggressive policy arid a/cohservative management of the property^;  Cepper SltwUlon It  Stfon_er  NotwithstAriding the.decline in copper; in London ; producers claim the  metal situation is stronger than it has  been in months. Copper is being sold  at tx% cents a pound' but in very  small quantities. The United Metals  Selling company continues to hold the  8AND1T AND CONSTABLE SHOT  Train Robbers and Constable Plre on  Each  Other at A.hcrMl ���^���/wi  Ashcroft, June 28 ���A boat containing three men, suspected of being the  train robbers, was seen coming down  the' Thompson river passing���> Penny's  station this morning. The boat reached  Ashcroft containing but two men.  They were ordered hy special constable  Ike Decker to pull, into shore arid alter  a landing was made "one, of the men  stepped out of the boat.'..-./Decker, who  was ashore, called on him to surrender,  levelling a Winchester rifle. At the  same instant the man pulled a revolver, the shots being fired simultaneously and the robber fell dead.  The second man, who was still in the  boat, then opened fire killing Decker  instantly. The murderer then escaped,  heading eastward along the railway.  Several posses are in pursuit of the  other bandits.  The      management      has     worked |  patiently and earnestly to eliminate and '  overcome all of these troubles, and has l _�����������- ��� -_.->    gone steadily forward with the work I bV beinI run over b>' a slag train at lhe  of increasing the capacity of the smel jCranby smelter last week.

By the end of this year,  barring ! leg had to be amputated.  ,,     Joseph   Ladelo,   an   Austrian,   22  j years of age, bad both his legs broken  His  right  further accident, the company will be  in a position to produce at the rate of  40,000,000 pounds of copper annually,  at a cost of about eight and a half  cents per pound, and earn $9 per share  on its stock on a 14 cent copper market  In view of the fact that it owns tens of  millions of tons of ore of the same  grade that is now being treated, such  a volume of production- and earnings  should cause Granby stock to sell well  above $150.  New Company Formed  The Copeland Mining and Development has been incorporated to develop  the Le Roi property on the West Fork.  The capital is $250,000 in one  dollar shares and the incorporators are  Dan Patterson, Walter Ross, Anson A.  White, Walter Cook and Gilbert Kay,  all of Phoenix. The company have an  excellent showing on their property,  located near Bridesville, Wash.  Prospects on the Jackpot in Wellington camp continue to improve and  those familiar with the property claim  it will yet be the British Columbia  Copper company's premier mine.  Enough ore is now blocked out on the  Jackpot to pay for the entire group of  claims recently bonded by the company.  During last week there were recorded  at the government office in Grand  Forks fourteen locations, fifteen certifi  cates of work and four transfers. The  transfers were as follows : one-fifth of  the Eclipse and one-fifth of the Yellow  Jacket mineral claims, Franklin camp,  D. Whiteside to B. Lequime; one-fifth  of Yellow Jacket and one-fifth, of  Eclipse mineral claims, Franklin camp,  P. T. McCallum to B. Lequime;all of  the Wallace fraction mineral claim,  Franklin camp, F. M.

The possible production of the  Amalgamated group mines has been  sold well into/the latter part of August  and no additional copper is being  pressed for sale. A representative of  a large company has stated that is was  impossible to purchase 5,000,000  pounds of copper at 13^ cents a pound,  although the Metal Enchange was  quoting electrolytic below 13 cents a  pound.

In  presenting the merits of the Carney  Copper mine, through your columns, I  have always been well within the facts.  To verify all I have claimed for the  mine, it is only necessiry for you to  visit the property. In his last letter to  me, the secretary of the company says:  "People are getting rather excited over  the showing. Nearly every day -there  are from one to six up to see it, and  they all report it the finest they ever  saw. Plenty of samples will go 20 to  50%." The property has reached that  stage of development which will soon  place, it in the shipping list, necessitating little or no advertising in the future,  as any information from the . property  will be eagerly sought after as news.;���  Respectfully, J.

COAL STRIKE ENDS  "IN EASTERN B.C  Operators and Workers Reach  . ari Understanding:  The officers of the Western Coal  Operators' association and United  Mine Workers of America met at  noon on Wednesday last, arid signed  an agreement which will send back to  work the mineis at Canmore, Leth-  bndge, Royal, Leitch, Hillcrest, Belle-  vue, Lille, Coleman and Hosmer mines  immediately.   /    / > / '  .; The agreement completed Wednesday was the agreement which was negotiated at McLeod last March, arid  canies with it the "open shop.",  Both parties have agreed that there  shall'be no descriminalion either by  the companies or the men against  union or nonunion men. After three  months of idleness and the loss to the  workmen of at least a half million  dollars ot wages with its attending loss  to the operators and the public, the  miners resume work at the same terms  which were offered by the operators  and accepted by the men last March,  but rejected by Frank Sherman, who  forced the strike at a time when all  parties interested expected peace.  .  The atmosphere, however, has been  cleared and it is expected that industrial peace will prevail in the coal mining centers of eastern-British Columbia  and western Alberta for the next two  years;-'..'     .'������'���' ���.'". .

A trial shipment from a new mine  named the Gold Note, located a short  distance west of the Granite Poorman  mine, has been shipped to Trail  smelter.   The ore is exceptionally rich.  H. R. Robbins, mining engineer,  of Seattle, who made an examination  in May of the' Apex group, in the  Snhilkameen, returned last week to  take up residence at the property as  director of the mine.  A'payment of $15,500 was made  Saturday on the Kootenay Belle, Sheep  Creek, by the purchasers, J. L. Warner,  T-^M- Black and Dr. F. E. Morrison.  This is the third payment to the  owners, Thomas Bennett and H. M.  Billings of Nelson.  Rio Tinto Group  J. L. Martin, writes with reference  to this group of claims : On Aug. and  and 3rd, 1905, I had them experted  by Mr/ Samuel Atighey of Spokane,  Washington. Mr. Aughey is an expert of 32 years experience, having  operated in Colorada and the south  west -for a great many years. Mr.  Aughey took twenty six assays .from  various holes, crosscuts and shafts oh  six of the claims. The highest assay  in gold, silver, lead and copper was  $18.51, the lowest was 89c; the aver  age of all the assays combined was  $7.78. The samples we're not taken  as average;assays from any of the four  ledges, for the reason that no ledge  was developed at that time to such a  degree as to permit of average sampling. After describing the location of  this propierty, and his ten page closely  type written report, Mr. Aughey says,  among many other interesting things:  'The ledges are very large, ranging  from 50 to 100 and more feet in  breadth. The values at the surface  average low, though some samples contain enough values to constitute them  pay ore, when once the majority comes  up to the same standard. This will  occur at greater depth, where there  will be an increase of copper and the  precious metals at the expense of the  iron. The iron sulphides are such, as  in this zone, change to more copper as  depth increases. I regard it eminently  safe to open up this  group  of claims,.  with   the   CONFIDENT   EXPECTATION   of  finding such bodies of sulphide of cop-  with  Vancouver claims a population of  100,000.  Kamloops  has   now   two  granolitic sidewalks.  Nelson has raised a fund of $500  for publicity purposes.  Vegetables are being shipped from  Creston to Saskatoon, Sask.

There are 15 licenses issued for the  retailing of liquors in Phoenix. These  have been in force for years, granted  under a similar, if not exactly, the same  administration that ruled Phoenix  years ago at the time these licenses  were first granted.  If, as is the contention of the Police  and License Commissioners, social arid  economic conditions have changed  during these years, I contend that  iliese conditions have changed materially for the better with regard to th  community at large. Yet it seems to  lie the war cry of the Police and Licensing Commissioners that there are to  day too many opportunities for the  laborer and miner to purchase liquor  which, the police and Licensing Commissioners say "They need not."  "Am I my brother's keeper"? was  spoken ages ago under circumstances  in which the speaker wished to get out  of an obvious difficulty, yet, officials  entrusted temporarily, with powers to  act, which they vainly attempt to exer  cise for the good of the majority of  whom they are the servants, are causing the same question to be asked. In  a truly sycophantic manner they ask  "Am I my brother's keeper"? These  15 licenses are granted so that if you  or I wish to obtain refreshment at the  "Queen's Hotel," or the "Tulep,"  "Silver," "Clover Leaf," or any other  licensed house, we can please ourselves  by patronizing the place which seems  best suited to our desires.  So far so good, but^how can reason  be reconciled to the idea of cutting out  about 10 of these 15 licenses to lessen  the "opportunities" for the citizen to  get his refreshment ?  Sir, you and I and all of us know  that such an enactment would no more  lessen the evil of abuse, if any exists,  than "sending coals to Newcastle" will  wipe out an epidemic ot Scarlet fever  in Hartford Junction.  The Police and Licensing Commissioners, in the wisdom of their judgment, and be it acknowledged, strictly  in accordance with the law, caused all  oars to be closed from 12 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. on the Monday following.  Sir, I have seen more men under  the influence of liquor on the several  Sundays since the act was enforced,  aye, and on our streets when   childien  Mr��.

A catarrhal condition of the .tomacli prevents perfect digestion. Such a condition allows the  food to .brcnont and decompose in various ways, instead of digesting. The blood is thus contaminated  with various materials that do not belong in the blood.  Thi. gives rico to .pring fovor, eruptions on the skin, general lassitude and constipation.  Peruna corrects all these difficulties by striking at the source of them. By eradicating the catarrhal condition of tlie stomach Poruna at once restores digestion, the blood is thereby purified, and  the whole machinery of tho body is put in working order.  5  Peruna has probably made a more remarkable record la cases of catarrh of the stomach than any  other medicine.

JomJaVMoBittvn*  were passing to Sunday school and  chapel, than I have before seen at any  similar time during the four years I  have been a constant resident of  Phoenix. ; v>  Is this -a*poor attempt at- moral reform, or is it a case of satisfying the  personal vanity of the Police and  Licensing Comissioners ?  They, like ourselves, are but mortal,  and if they attempt to put on the robe  of immortality before they leave this  "city in the clouds," they will find  their subsequent journey very tiresome  until they reach a much lower altitude.  Personally, as is well known, I have  never been an advocate of open gamb-  'ing, I am no gambler myself and never  wish to be.  I have seen the sordid side of the  .fleets pf gambling in different parts  of the world, perhaps to a greater degree than has been the opportunity of  most in this city, and it will always be  my desire, and my effort, to remove  from the path of working men the  chances of being systematically robbed  by an organized and magesterially  icensed gang of "tin horns "  One more point, and very important :���  Sir, you will notice that at least 1 o i  of the licenses held jn this city, are  held by, men who have spent many  years of their lives, working hard in the  mines of the Boundary country, nearly  all have worked for years in the. mines  of Phoenix. 1  These men, by dint of hard labor j  and thrift, have saved some money, |  have been, and are respectaole citizens,  and invested their "all" in a legitimized  and respectable business ; often taking  their previous amount of savings to  attain to this licensed business.  No complaints are on record of their  conducting their business in a disorderly fashion.  When any object of charity needs  action upon, they are the very first to  put their hands in their pockets for  something substantial, be the charity  for schools, church, spoit or individual  necessity. Now, It is the desire of the  Police and Licensing Commissioners  to either take away their licenses or  make the license fee so prohibitive an  amount that they will lose their "all,"  both capital sunk in the business and  the chance of getting a fair return for  their outlay.  Mr. Editor, is this fair to men, or  even a fair example of British Constitutional law ?  I contend it is anything but fair.  If the vote of the electorate  were  taken on this matter it would be found  out how   many   friends  or supporters  ers have and also how many are supporters of men who having worked for  years underground wish to exercise  their rights to demand "liberty" and  "freedom, two assets as valuable to our  glorious-^es��pireiLas to our glorious  working population.
