POST OFFICE STORE  Boundary mining and business men  are beginning to fully realize how dependent our smelters aie on the coke  supply from the Ciow's Nest Coal  fields. The explosion at Fernie stopped the supply for a time, and then  the situation was further aggravated by  the fire at the company's town of Michel, near Fernie. 'To make it woise,  last week the miners at Fernie went  out on strike and as yet no settlement  has been reported.  The strike was because the new  manager put in force a rule that men  must be at work for the full eight  hours, instead of being allowed to use  the company's time from tunnel mouth  from "bank to bank," as it is  termed.  Boundary sm.lters require no less  than 350 tons of coke per day to make  up the respective charges, or about 18  cars each 24 hojrs. Of this amount  the Granby smelter alone uses 1 o cars  for it's four furnices. Since the Fernie explosion, which occurred May 23d  comparatively little coke has been received in the Boundary Agents from  al! the local smelters have visited Fernie, to get at the exact situation, but  with little satisfaction,  When the explosion happened the  Granby smelter had about .1,500, tons  of coke as a reserve, the Greenwood  smelter had a 30 days' reserve for one  furnace, and the Sunset smelter also  had considerable coke. But these  reseives were soon used up, and a coke  famine now confronts each one of these  reduction works, no one being able to  tell just when it will end. A little  coke, perhaps four or five cars daily,  has been received at the Granby smelt  er from the Michel ovens, but this is  not sufficient to run two furnaces at  full capacity.  Rumors have been abroad that coke  would be obtained from Nanaimo at  the coast, but this is out of the question, both because of cost of freight  and on account of lack of sufficient  supply there.  An InlereatiBf TWory.  One theory as to the real cause of  the present trouble has been advanced,  and that is that Jim hill is: at last  getting even with the C. V. R. and its  patrons for the trouble he has had and  is still having to get his new line into  the Boundary and particularly to > the  Granby smelter.  It is asserted���though no proof is  brought out���that Mr. Hill, who is  acknowledged to own 30 per cent of  Crow's Nest Coal Co. shares, and is  building a railway line to the coal fields  from the states, has managed to get  this strike brought on at this time to,  if possible, tie up the whole country  by cutting off the coke supply of the  smelters. Another injunction is to be  argued on the 8th of July at Victoria,  as to whether he will be allowed to lay  his rails into Grand Forks and to the  Granby smelter.  If Mr. Hill has really manipulated  matters in the Crow's Nest to bring  this about, and show the people of  British Columbia his real power, it will  be interesting to note what move the  C. P- R. will make in the matter.  Mr. Hill is a fighter all over, and he  will undoubtedly, in the opinion of the  public, eventually lay his rails into  Phoenix, but in the C. P. R. he has  no mean antagonist, as Mr. Hill himself knows only too well. If this  theory is correct, the Boundary is being made the scene of a battle royal  between the two greatest railway forces  in the world.  ITALIAN WAS FINED $15.  But Pal. His VlctUnV Doctor'. Account aid  Httafftal Fee*.  Last October Angelo Pasco assaulted Joseph Costonza; another Italian,  both being employed on the extension  to the Knob Hill .pur then being put  in by the C. P. R.;. Pasco was arrested and fined $15. /Two or three weeks  later Costonza evened, things up by  felling Pasco wi_hva heavy maul or  hammer, and then fled, thinking Pasco  was fatally injured.  Since then the provincial police have  been trying to locate Cost.nza, and as  he had a brother- who is section fore  man on the Boundary railway, it was  accomplished la.t^week by Constable  Darraugh, of Phoenix. - Mr. Darraugh  went to Farron,' beyond Coryell, on  the railway, and before the  train had  left arrested his man and took him on  t  to Nelson for the night.  Costonza was brought toGieenwood  for trial late last week, and was fined  $15 and costs for his friskiness, Pasco  having recovered quickly. Costonza,  however, had ^paid Pasco's hospital  and medical'bills, amounting to $1165.  The escapade probably cost the province $50 or %i%.  .-p*"^.

Foreman Baker, irt-charge of the  work for Porter Bros., who have a contract from the Granby Co.,'began active operations jhi'O week. The fiist  thing is to get the wire tram iti position, and two stations have been built,  about 600 feet apart, on which the  rope will run. One of these stations  is located on the hUl above the No'. 2.  shafthouse of the Old; Ironsides mine,  the other being quite a distance below  the Knob Hill ore bins. Yesterday  men were busy getting up the engine  by which the tramway will beopeiated.  The next work will be the stripping  of the sui face, so as to uncover the  mammoth ore bodies This will take  some time, and then things will be in  a position-to handle the ore itself.

Bill White,  the  well  known   pros  iiector, believes  he  has  struck  a bonanza in Brown's  camp on the North  fork,  says  the Grand' Forks News  Gazette.    He claims  to  have uncovered 125 feet  of solid quartz on the  Granby, an extension  ot  the Monitor  claim.    The location  was   made last  month.    Bill   says it is a free milling  proposition, and  the  deposit  was uncovered in a glacial basin covered with  wash.    He  has  it   stripped and will  push .development   w.ork.:   Assays  of  the ore   are now.being made.'   Mr.  White located the Earthquake'group.  Operation Was-Successful;  E. VV. Savage was Operated on ac  the Greenwood hospital Tuesday, and  to save his life his leg was "amputated.  Savage was hurt June 8th at the  Mother Lode mine in the explosion  that killed Richard Babb. His leg was  lascerated badly, bones were broken,  and since the accident he has been  getting weaker. As a last resorts-imputation was decided upon, since which  he has been improving.

Carleton Hohnan, who for some  two years has been foreman at the No.  7 mine, Central camp, has been promoted to a similar position with the  Mother Lode mine, Deadwood camp.  Although operated by different companies, they are controlled by the same  shareholders.  liob Veatch and Jimmy Stephens,  who started for the much heralded  Thunder Mountain gold fields, in  Idaho, some weeks ago, are reported  io have got a far as Stites, and to have  sought other fields, the late reports of  Thunder's so-called riches not being  sufficently attractive.  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were 5,583 tons.  If as many ]>_rsons weie ever gathered in Miner's Union Hall as- were  present last Wednesday evening to  hear an address by Eugene Victor  Debs, the Pioneer man does not know  of it.  Mr. Debs, who bears a close resemblance to Bill Nye. is a clear speaker  and has no trouble in holding the attention of his audience to the end, as  he is enthusiastic on the subject of  Socialism, and has an interesting manner of expression. He spoke steadily  for nearly two hours.  In rising to address the meeting,  Mr. Debs was greeted with loud and  prolonged applause, and without apology for his presence, he atjonce proceeded to discuss the subject of which  he had been for so many years an  ardent student and able exponent.  Dealing at the outset with the competitive system, which prevails to-day,  he proceded to show that the trusts,  were unconsciously hastening on the  Socialist movement, from the fact that  they were eliminating competition in  their gigantic combinations, and were  thus enabledjto.not only control the  pi ices, but also the markets and output, so as to avoid an overplus.  In this process, however, two other  results were being produced, which  were ���having a disastrous effect upon  the industrial world, in the fact that  it was not only crowding the small  capitalist and the middle man into the  ranks of common labor, but also evolving that genus omne, the tramp,  which was one of the worst results! of  this age of combination. In the evolution it was shown that the tramp,  though practically an unknown specimen a half century ago, was forced into the ranks of the unemployed through  the aggregation of capital and the shutting down of factories and.mills.  He claimed that while the earning  power of the producer was. twenty  times that of his fellow workmen fifty  years ago, his actual possession of the  wealth which he produced did not exceed seventeen per cent. This condition had been produced by the introduction of the machine, which was  no longer owned by the worker, but by  the capitalist. The perfection of the  machine had made the skilled me-|  chanic unnecessary, whose place  been taken too often by his wife and  children.  In America he asserted^Jthere are  4,000,000 women working in the factories and mills. The same number  of children had been secured by the  capitalists to operate mills and machinery at an age when ih.y should  be at school and given the right to develop themselves mentally as well as  physically.  Urge. Study of Politics.  He urged upon the working classes  especially to take up the economic  questions of the day, and those who  were good union men, not to be satisfied with being union men on three  hundred and sixty four days of the  year���all but election day.  In recommending Socialism as the  panacea for these economic evils,  Mr. Debs disputed that the Socialists  were advocating "dividing up," but  that they were opposed to dividing,  which was aheady being done, whereby the wealth of the world was owned  and controlled by twenty per cent ol'  the people, and eighty percent were in  actual slavery and subordination to the  wealthy few.  He also contended that the political  and social liberty of the people depended absolutely upon economic conditions, and although the majority of  the people were opposed to Socialism,  it was the only remedy. It was no  evidence of the error of the principles  of Socialism, because the majority of the  people were opposed to it, as every  great reform in all ages of the  world |  had been opi��sed by public opinion,  which had also sanctioned every crime  in the calendar.  In closing he earnestly appealed to  the intelligence of the audience, to  make a study of the question, and dis-  ifgard the clap-trap of the party politician, because whatever party won,  Mie workers always lost. He claimed  1 hat when they voted for cents, they  were voting against dollars.  Intelligence, he said, might hasten  the intioduction of the Socialist form  of government, and   ignorance   might  retard it, but the combination  of both J ^^ Wumfcer Present From Phoenix, Green-  . . wood, Nelson, Rossland, Spokane, Rcpub-  cannot prevent it. ���     '   _,      ���,.      _ , ,  ' He and Many Otbere Points.

At Boundaiy Falls the Sunset smelter is still tunning, with coke enough  to last_another week.  Twelve new hard finished cottages  are to be erected in Phoenix this year  by the Granby Co. for married employees.  Boundary shipments are small this  week, due lo lack of coki at the smelters. The Granny's two furnaces were  blown out early in the week and have  not yet been started. '  ,  This week the Greenwood smelter  was forced to suspend operations, tem  poiaiily, oiraccount of lack of-coke,  and no shipments  of ore   now being  made from the Mother Lode miue..  It is lepoited���although many  doubt the authenticity of the statement���that the Cascade Water, Power  and Light Co. will be prepired to supply powei over its long distance transmission lines by the end of July  Much remains yet to be done in installing machineiy at Cascade.  BOUNDARY PRODUCES $20,000 PER DAY.  Seven Furnaces Can Turn Out Over $500,000  Per Monih.  H. Mortimer Lamb, known as a conservative writer, had the following in  last Sunday's Victoria Colonist regard-  inu the growing output of Boundary  mines :  It is now to be noted that there" are  no less than seven blast furnaces- in  operation in the Boundary district.  Thus, since the blowing in 'ast week  of the Sunset smelter at Boundary  Falls and of a second furnace at the  Greenwood smelter, no more tangible  evidence could be required of the great  industrial progress that is taking place  in that district, and those who hot so  many years ago were laughed at for  predicting that the Boundary would in  the course of time rival Butte, the  great Montana copper centre, are at  length receiving, that honor which is so  rarely accorded a prophet in his own  country.  The present combined capacity of  the Boundary smelters, or rather the  amount of ore treated by them at this  time, is rather over 2,500 tons in the  24 hours, the value of the product being approximately $20,000 a day, or,  say, half a million dollars a month.  If   his output  were maintained  for a  I year, and in future there is every rea-  had ,',',.���    ���      -,,  - ,  son to believe it will  increase  rather  than diminish,   the   production   from  this ore district alone would be equivalent to very  nearly one half of the  total production of metalliferous mines  of the whole province during  1901������  no   bad   record,   surely, (or a district  whose productive career  had  scarcely  commenced two years ago.

Day celebiation at Grand  Forks was, in many lespects, the best  yet held in the Smelter City. The  Rossland and Nelson companies of the  Rock Mountain Rangeis, in their smart  uniforms, brightened the scene, and  while they were encamped at the Forks  held a series of rifle matches.  Tuesday's special train took down  over a hundred passengers from Phoenix, and Greenwood, Eholt and Midway together contributed as .many  more. Returning, special tarins were  run up the hill Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Besides these every  available team in town was pressed *  into service, and many went in this  way.  A special train over the partially  completed Great Northern biought  many crack horses from Spokane. In  fact the horse racing was the great attraction of the event, and some excellent horse flesh, from many points, was "  brought in. Although the track was  heavy, the races were good.  The celebration was given by the  Grand Forks Driving Park and Ath-  lethic Association, six thousand dollars  having been spent on the new half  mile race track, which is conceded to  be one of the best in the piovince.  Credit is due the members for their  enterpiise in getting leady such an  admirable track for race meets.  Results of Sports.

Evidently things are getting to a  point in this province where a large  .melting concern, to ensure a continuous supply of coke, must operate its  own coke ovens. It would not be surprising if this happened in the near  future.  Perhaps it is for the best that most  of the wind and hot air has been knock  ed out of mining in this province, and  that the industry is now being pursued  on strictly business lines���the lines that  eventually bring the greatest measure  of success.  Simplicity is the soul of art m advertising.  Kneel before the throne of the successful advertiser���he is worthy of admiration.

The strike of the Pennsylvania coal  mines is now in its eighth week.  This is the season for forest fires to  get in their deadly work. Millions  of dollars worth of timber are wantonly  destroyed annually in the province in  this way.       . -  The C. P. K. is continually improving its trackage facilities to Boundary  mines. This shows what that gieat  corporation thinks of the future of the  Boundary.  It's lucky we do not - live in the  Transvaal. We think a two per cent  tax on ores is heavy, but down there  the tax is now five per cent They are  paying the piper.  1 In the' list of those recently honored  by-the king, the name of James Duns-  muir does not appear. Can it be that  bur millionaire premier's efforts" have  gone unrecognized ?   Sudi is fame.  Our coal mining laws need attention���and even more important yet, a  few inspectors who will conscientiously  inspect and report what they find in  coal mines, would not be out of place.  Keep a stiff upper lip, even if you  are not making money as 'fast -as^ you  may wish. Good times are in store  for the Boundary, and it will yet be  the most flourishing part of the pio-  vince.  Premier Dunsmuir is a good equestrian, having managed to keep in the  legislative saddle through a most stormy  ses.ion. But he had to make a fine  exhibition of horsemanship or broncho  busting.   At this writing reports in regard to  the King's recovery are most favorable.  Peoples and nations rejoice at the news,  even though the unexpected postponement of the ceremony meant ruin to  thousands and .thousands.  This week Grand Forks did the  honors in the celebration line in great  style, the entire city being hosts to the  thousands of visitors. When it comes  to celebrations, Grand Forks can look  back with piide to its record.  It is many years since any British  Columbia legislature has received the  universal criticism that has been generously bestowed on that which recently  wound up business. And never seemingly was it more fully earned.   '    ���  A New York editor discourages aspirants from seeking glory and cash in  the journalistic arena.

PHOENIX, B. C.  Two years ago today not a pound of  ore was being smelted in the Boundary.  Today three distinct corporations, each  with ample capital, are recucing Boundary ores It is not too much to believe that the next two years will also  show marvellous strides in Boundary  development. '  An almost incalculable loss was oc  casion.d in London by the postpone  ment of the coronation of King Edward. . This loss will fall heavily on  tradesmen and speculators, to say  nothing of insurance companies. All  of which shows that a dead sure thing  is not easy to find.  Half of 1902 has gone, and the  Boundary has extracted and shipped  over 250,000 tons of ore this year. If  this is maintained���and it will prob  ably be even larger���for the rest of the  year, the shipments for 1902 will easily  show an increase of 25 per cent over  those for the year 1901.  It appears that the United States  government is likely to take" up and  complete the Panama canal, that remarkable undertaking that has a'ready  swallowed the savings of millions and  millions in French money. If uncle  Sam undertakes it, he will probably  carry it to a successful issue.-  Once again the building of the  Greenwood-Phoenix tramway is being  revived by capitalists at the foot of the  hill. It must be that Phoenix looks  good to our friends down in Greenwood. Such a line would give them  a chance to see the banner shipping  mines of the province at sYnall cost.  ��� Talk is rife for a daily paper for the  little town of Golden, on'the main line  of the C.

It is now up  to them to act. The farmeis of the  Okioagan with their bounteous cops,  and the miners of the Boundary with  their demand for said crops, all want  the railway built.

The Arlington, in the Slocan, has  been reducing its force, pending a  better deal for smelting its ore.  During the first six months of this  year over 8,000 tons of Slocan ore has  been shipped through" Kaslo, double  that of last year.  Judge J. M. Miller, of Rossland,  says that $75,000 will be spent this  year by the Old Gold and Primrose  mining companies on Lardo properties.  The Goldfinch, a Lardeau property,  was sold last week by D. Cameron  and W. Butler, to the Northwest Development Syndicate of Nelson, for  $25,000.  The Richard III. mine on Mount  Sicker, Vancouver 'Island, owned by  Mrs Leonora Richards of Port Town-  send, was bonded to United States and  British capitalists for $100,000.

To the ou'ward senses' Mr. Debs  presentsja very pier-sing pirture of a  gentleman in the conventional sense of  the word. He is tall, erect, very bald,  with an expressive, sensitive countenance. His manner is cordial and his  language and method of utterance re  as beyond reproach as 'those of any  man we have seen in Mayfair or Filth  avenue. It was almost a shock to me  to behold the man as he is, after the  scurrilous descriptions one has read in  those organs which help to form public  opinion, which are such a questionable  addition to our national intelligence.  So much then for what of Mr. Debs  appears to the outward senses; it bears  that test which is said* to be infallible  in judging the conventional gentle  man, namely, that il he were standing  silent and unknown among a'lot of  men, one would notice him and' would  not know why.  This, however, is very immaterial,  for it is when one approaches that part  of man which lights and forms the  outer man, that one becomes' really  conscious that one is in the presence  of a true mm. Ii becomes evident to  any eyes that can see, that here is  really a manly man, who dwells higher  than his stomach, from that fact, ih.n  like every great- man, he is possessed  by his idea. r��  His audi.nee of at least 1,200 would  testify to his skill and truth.

During the-year ending 30th April,  1902, the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company earned profit sat the rate ol"  10.13 p. c.on'its common "stock, the  Northern (Pacific at the.rate of 8.39  p. c, and the Gieat Northern Railway  at the rale of 10.39 P- c- The capital of the Canadian Pacific Railway  Company is $65,000,000, that of the  Northern Pacific $155,000,000, and  that of the Great Northern $125,000,-  000. The C. P. R. has a large issue  ot preference shares, the others have  not.  Figures  Talk  The fifth annual meeting of the  shareholders of the Ciow's Nest Pass  Coal Company was held in Toronto  on March 7th.  The net piofil of the year after paying all operation expense and all  chaige of every kind amounted to $207,-  848.39. After paying a dividend at  the late of ten per cent, per annum, a  balance of $28,142,89 was carried  forward to the credit of profit and loss.  This company's assets are their  coal mines and the Townsite of Fernie.  Four years ago this Company had no  transportation facilities, and their stock  sold as low as eleven cents per share.  Today theii stock is selling at $90.00.  The Similkameen Valley Coal Company, L-mited, assets are, coal mines,  timber, water power, agricultural and  horticultuial land, city water works,  electric light plant and the townsite of  Ashnola, sunounded by the following  resources: gold, copper, silver, lead,  iron, lime, fire clay, platinum and a  fine stock raising countiy and it is the  smelting centre ol the Similkameen  Valley, .with a climate all that could be  asked. Today you can secure an option on this Company's stock by paying ten cents per share down and ten  cents per month until fully paid, with  non-forfeiture clause. This price is  subject to a twenty-five per cent advance  without notice, or as soon as transportation it assured. The present price  is $ 1.1 o per share. Do not wait until it is too late, but get in on the ground  floor and make, a handsome profit. A  purchaser of 100 shares now, may  gain a profit of $8990.00. Crow's  Nest shares are an example. This  would be a fair profit on an invest-  mant of jj.to.6o per month for eleven  months. We invite the fullest inspection of the company's affairs by intending purchasers.   ,  The Old Jackdaw's attention is called to the extensive patronage given  eastern departmental stores by residents  of Phoenix���members of unions and  their wives. The J. D. does not blame  them for this if���and mark the IF���  they cannot gel the goods here. But  the fact is that the great majority of  goods can be purchased right h.re,  generally a better quality of goods, too.  <m  It is said that families in Phoenix  have even purchased groceries in Toronto, from the T. Eaton Co.���the  concern that has a strike on because it  would not pay fair wages. The O. J.  must confess that he fails to see how  this can be justified on any sort of  grounds, in this or any other community. If this sort of thing was followed  out to its logical conclusion, and every  person made all their purchases in the  east���in fair or unfair establishments  ���it would mean that no merchant  could remain in business in the Boundary.  But to bring it closer home the O. J  knows for a certainty that one or two  concerns in Phoenix, depending on  union people for support, have sent  outside and had printing done, in nonunion offices. Just why this was done,  or in what manner it could be explained, does not appear. The fact, however, remains. And this, too, when  there is maintained in Phoenix one of  the best equipped printing establishments in the interior. Is consistency  a jewel���well, perhaps.  The sage of the New Denver Ledge,  after an experience of being the fathei  of some 20 different newspapers, has  the following to say.-about the man who  dees not advertise. The O J. commends its perusal:  "The man who does not advertise  is either ignorant of business methods  or so fond of a dollar that he lacks public spirit. If neither of these things  can be said of him, then he is a contented man who is satisfied with a mere  existence, and with desire dead in his  heart, he crawls along while others  ride in automobiles."  The Uld Jackdaw.  BILLS PASSED BV LEGISLATURE.  For further information apply to  Similkameen Valley Coal Company^  Nelson, B. C.  Acts That Were Ass;Bled to by the Lieutenant-  Governor.

A good joke related at the expense  of a modest young newspaper man, is  going the rounds simply credited to an  exchange.  It is to the effect that the pusher of  the pencil went out to report a party  the other evening where the house had  been recently blessed with a baby.  Accompanied by his best girl he met  the hostess at the door, and after the  usual salutation asked after the baby's  health. The lady, who was quite deaf  and suffering from the giippe, though 1  he was asking after her cold, and told  him she had one.every winter and this  was the worst one she had ever had;  it kept her awake at night a good deal  at first and confined her to her bed.  Then noticing that the scribe was get-  ling pale and nervous, she said she  could tell by his looks that he was going to have one just like hers and asked him to go and lie down. The paper was out as usual next week, but  the local editor had quit enquiring  about babies.  ���������������������������������������������������������������������������a  _.
