Boyles Brothers have been opeiat-  ing a diamond drill for the Granby Co.  for more than ten months:  Shipments are starting from the  E.P.U. once more, as repairs to thCj  tramway have been completed. Drifting is going on at the 200 foot level.  Three shifts of men are now at work-  in the main shaft of the Crescent,  which is down about 80 feet, and will  be deepened to the_ 100 foot level,  when drifting will be done.- Rich ore  is being taken out every day.  Development at the Mavis continues to show up that property better  than ever. In the bottom of the 40  foot shaft the vein is now about 14  inches wide, and is literally sprinkled  with free gold. Several tons of good  ore are now on the dump.  Exactly two months ago today the  last man was laid off at the Brooklyn  mine pending reorganization. The  only employees have been Foreman  Callahan and Master Mechanic Crawford, who kept the water out of the  Brooklyn and Stemwinder.  W. V. Williams returned Thursday  from a trip to the Dividend and Lake  side groups on Kruger(mpuntain, Oso-  yoos, on which the Gnnby Co. has a  bond. The drift ou the Dividend is  now in 126 feet, with as much more to  drive to strike the.-ledge. Foreman  Rogers has 15 men at work. Mr  Williams went right'On lo Spokane.  Last Saturday, when a new head  feeder was . put to,' work at the B. C.  Copper smelter at Greenwood, the  feeders quit work without notice. The  furnaces were drawn^by Supt.

Ore  A sad fatality occurred Monday  afternoon at the Granby mines, resulting" in"tlie"'"death "of James "A. McGregor, who had been employed here  for less than a mo uh.  McGregor was under Shiftboss John  Miller, and was mucking at the 19th  chute of the third level. In common  with all men at the mines, he had been  warned not to enter the chute, because  of the danger from ore suddenly falling  from above. Like ihany, however, he  took chances, and went up into the  chute, evidently to dislodge some ore.  It came down without warning or time  for him to escape, and when found a  few minutes later McGregor was dead,  with a piece of rock weighing many  hundred pounds pinning him against  the walls, his life having evidently been  crushed out instantly. It required six  men to remove the rock. Dr. Boucher  was called', but the poor fellow was beyond human aid, and the remains was  taken to Clark & Binns undertaking  parlors.  Constable Darraugh was notified, as  well as Dr. C. M. King ton, of Grand  Forks, the coroner, and Tuesday afternoon the coroner's inquest was held,  the jury empanelled being David Oxley, foreman, Alex McRae, H. A.  Munroe, Alex Greig, Murdock Mcln-  tyre and A. S. Williamson. Those  examined as witnesses were Hemy  Haughton, Norman McLeod, John  Miller and Dr. R. B. Bencher. The  jury rendered a verdict of accidental  death, with a recommendation that  the company make ore chutes as safe  as possible.  The funeral was held Thursday  afternoon from Miners' Union hall, interment being given in the Phoenix  city cemetery, Rev. MacColl and  Whittaker officiating.  The funeral was attended by Supt.  Smith, Foreman Swanson and over  100 miners.  McGregor was a young man, not  more than 20 or 21 years of age, a  native of Nyanza, Victoria county,  Nova Scotia. He leaves a father and  mother, with brothers and sisters, who  were notified of the fatality. Before  coming to Phoenix McGregor had  been employed at log rolling at a sawmill near Ymir. He had joined the  Miners'   Union   only   last    Saturday  night.           Pint Dirt is Thrown.  This week a start on active work towards the building of the new opera  house and hall by Phoenix Miners'  Union was made. Work was started  on the necessary excavating and from  now on it is expected there will be no  let-up. The first lumber is on the  ground, and the order for the lumber  for the entire structure is being placed  this week.  The opera house will be 45x100 feet  in size, large enough to scat five hundred persons il desired. It will probably have a metallic ceiling and will bo  down to date in its appoi iitiiients.  The entrance will he on School street,  with an extra lire exit or two. The  committee state ihat they have been  much delayed in getting started by not  being able to secure the exact grade  of either Knob Hill avenue or School  street from the city officials.  By the receipt  ot< a   telegram   this  week   from   his attorney in Spokane,  Robert G. Mack, of Phoenix, was noti-  -  J  fled that he had won; the suit   against  his brother, John Mack, and the Athel-  stan Gold & Copper^Mining Co., and  is adjudged the owner of 33,333 shares  of    Athelstan    stoctc,   and   that   his  father's estate gets 5&000 shares.  The suit has been! before the courts  of Washington stated for about two  years, and has nows^been decided by  the courtrofhighest-ri?Jiort, the opinion  rendered bemg a reversal of the superior court of Spokane county.  In 1896 John Mack was prospecting in the Boundary, with the understanding that Robert G. Mack should  hai-e a half inteiest in what might be  located. W. J. Poiter showed John  the present Athelstan ground, which  was located. Later Robert and William, another brother, did assestments  on the Athelstan, and they agreed that  William should have a third. In 1898  John bonded the claim to Loring &  Crane of Spokane for $15,000, ten per  cent down. This bond finally lapsed  In 1900 the claim was sold to the  Athelstan Gold and Copper Minint.  Co., consisting mostly of Huntington  Quebec, men, for $3,000 cash and  350,000 shares. John gave his  brothers their share of the cash, but  sold the stock to W. J. Morrison for  $14,000, payable in 12 months.  John Mack declined to divide the  sales of the stock with his brothers,  c'aiming the cash he gave them was in  the nature of outright gifts. The  Supreme Court of Washington gives  Robert G. Mack all that he asks for.  In the meantime, Morrison and  Mack made a deal with the Athelstan  syndicate to sell a control, or about  520,000 shares, the syndicate consisting of Messrs. Slawson, Collins, Hunter, etc. After working the claim this  syndicate sold the control they held to  the Montreal & Boston for something  like $60,000 or $8o,ooo. The Montreal & Boston has since sold the  Athelstan control to the Dominion  Copper Co.  Robert G. Mack is receiving the  congiatulations of his many friends in  Phoenix.

Last Saturday night the Miners'  Exchange hotel was closed, the license  having expired. M. II. Roy, the proprietor, took possession of the Butte  hotel,, which lie had previously purchased. Robert Barr, who had the  Butte, is looking for something in the  .Similkameen country. Mr. Roy is  making a number of improvements in  the Butte.  James McRae, of McRae Bros. &  Smith, returned Sunday from a two  months' trip into the Similkameen  country, and was much pleased at  what he saw while absent. Ho carrietl  his line camera along with him and  took a large number of the best photographs of mines, buildings, towns, etc.,  ever seen in that section. lie says  there are about 15 men employed at  Medley.  M. M. Johnson, chief consulting engineer of the Dominion  Copper Co., which recently ab  sorbed the properties of the  Montreal & Boston Consolidated  in the Boundary, accompanied  by T.W. Drummond, who will  be the local superintendent, arrived in camp yesterday noon,  for the .purpose of looking over  the properties, preparatory to beginning actual work once more.  Horace T. Pemberton, manager  ofthe Montreal & Boston Consolidated, was with them and  showed them around the Brooklyn, Stemwinder, Rawhide and  other mines owned by the company. :  Mr. Johnson was seen by the  Pioneer representative, but said  he was not yet ready to talk for  publication regarding his plans.  Operations would be resumed  shortly, however, he stated.  From other sources the Pioneer  man is informed .that all the preparations for extensively exploiting the Brooklyn group of mines',  have now been definitely completed. There were a number  of complications that took time  to straighten out, but this has fin  ally been accomplished, and the  financial end of the company is  without question. The $700,-  000 bond issue was more than,  subscribed, and the debts ofthe  old company are being taken  care of, leaving a large working  mnd.  T. W. Drummond. the new  local manager, has been for yeais  in the employ'of Mr. Johnson at  the Highland Boy-mine,-at Bing---  ham, Utah, where he was assistant superintendent. Mr. Johnson himself is on the new board  of directors, and lie will have  entire charge of the operations of  the company. He expects to  remain in the Boundary two nr  three weeks on this trip, and will  be here frequently in future. W.  C- Thomas, the new smelter  superintendent, will arrive in a  day or two.  It is the intention, we are informed, to start the mines and  smelter at once, on the old lines,  the new management picking up  where the old management left  off. As soon as possible, Mr.  Johnson will formulate his policy  of extensive and vigorous development and enlargement, which  it is believed, cannot but redound  to the benefit of the Boundary  as well as to that of the shareholders of the company.  The Untermeyer - Newhouse-  Guggenheim interests are a strong  combination, and their introduction to the Boundary, with their  records of success in the mining  world, is thought to be a good  thing for this section.  Forks.  Thomas Patker, of Grand,Forks,  has heen gazetted inspector of weights  and measures for the district of Nelson.  E. Spraggett, road foreman, has a  force of twenty men busy on the extension of the wagon road to Franklin  camp.  Judge Andrew Leamy is' still very,  ill at his home in Grand Forks, and  his oldest son has arrived from St.  Catharines, Ontario.  , ��� In rebuilding its Boundary line, the  B. C. Telephone Co. gang has reached.  Grand Forks, and is now coming up  Boundary mountain.  Duncan Ross, M. P., is expected to  return from Otfiwa next week, and it ���  would not he surprising if the residents  of Greenwood tendered him  a  reception.  A total: of;fourteen pupils from the  Grand Forks public school has passed  the high school examination in the last  year, four of them at the recent examination.  William McBride, appointed alderman in- Greenwood to take the place  vacated by the resignation of Alder  man McNeill, has declined to accept  the position.  Holders of retail liquor licenses at  Grand Forks were given a permit for  one month .to August 15th, by which  time the new license bylaw is expected  to be m effect.  W. A. Harkin, for years a well  known correspondent in the Boundary,  is now at the coast, and is said to be  holding down an editorial chair in.the  office of the Vancouver Province. ���-:  A. W. Strickland, formerly with the  Greenwood branch of the Bank of  Montreal, arid latterly manager of the  New Denver branch, has been made  manager ol the new branch at Nicola  Lake. .     .    . -.,  rock drilling contest at Rossland.  There wnre six teams entered, and the  winners drilled 35^ inches in 15  minutes. -  Owing to the continued illness of  Judge Leamy, the Liberals of Grand  Forks are making an effort to have W.  H. P. Clement, of that city, appointed  deputy county judge for Yale and  Kootenay. '  In another week or two it is  expected that the ntw Greenwood  water works will be ready for use, the  water being taken from Lind creek,  and the system also supplying the adjoining town ol Anaconda.  Next Monday the license   commiss���''-'  ioners   for Boundary  creek- will hold  a special meeting at Grand Forks, and  on August 4th another  special   meet -  ing will be held, the latter lo considei  the application of B.   Lequime for  a  license at Midway.  Charles H. Thomas is talking of rebuilding his Cascade hotel, which was  burned to the ground last week, together with several other buildings in  Cascade. The total losses from the  fire run up to about $20,000. Mr,  Thomas had only$i,ooo insurance.  The bridge over Kettle river at  Hall's ferry, seven miles below Cascade, known and crossed by all old  timers in the Boundary for years, went  out last week, and wagon communication between Boundary and Marcus or  Bossburg is a thing of the .past���for  the present, at least.  J. Callayhan, C.P.R. engineer from  Winnipeg, is reported to be making a  reconnoisance up the North Fork of  Kettle river, and on into the Nicola  country from there. This makes the  third survey of the kind for a railway  line up to Franklin camp, the Kettle  Valley and Great Northern each having run lines to that important section  of the Boundary.  (���������������������e����0**o*��e*9��*��*e��  LITIGATION OVER  PROVIDENCE MINE,  Cases  Now  Being  Nelson.  Tried  at  This week the several cases of litigation, involving the control of the  rich Providence mine, near Greenwood, were on trial at Nelson. The  cases all grew out of attempts made by  both Chicago and Boundary shareholders to gain control of the mine, the  friction between the two parties having  grown more acute for several months  last past. Mark F. Madden represents  the Chicago men, while W. M. Law,  J. J. Caulfield and ���Duncan Mcintosh  are among the Greenwood men interested, together with W.' S. Macy, of  Phoenix. Sonic of the best legal  talent ol the province is engaged on  both sides of the cases, with ten or fifteen lawyers, more or less, which are  being heard by Mr. Justice  Irving.  The first case was that against Caul-  field, 1-aw and Mcintosh, for $294,  paid through a dummy to settle Caul-  field's expense to Chicago. The testimony was extremely sensational, and  while the justice reserved decision till  the cases are all through, he indicated  how he might decide.  The second case is Ihe celebrated  Diiiiond fraction case, the company  having bought that claim, and Madden  seeking to nullify the s;(  give the local men, it was t  controlling interest.    The  to lie paid for 111  company.  1,6(1  c, as it would  bought, the  1 linioiid was  lares   of   ihe  Grand Chancellor W��i Here*. t  George Johnson, of Nanaimo, grand  chancellor of the Knights of Pythias of  British Columbia, was a visitor in the  city last Tuesday, and was given a reception by the local members of the  order at Hardy hall. Mr. Johnson  made an address, being introduced by  Chancellor Campbell, of Phoenix  Lodge No. 2S. Refreshments were  served, and the evening was much enjoyed.  In speaking about the condition of  the order in British Columbia, Mr.  Johnson said that the order was very  prosperous throughout the province. In  the British Columbia jurisdiction there  are 28 subordinate lodges with a membership of about 2,485. Vancouver is  a stronghold of Pyihianism, having  three lodges. Victoria has two lodges,  and every leading town in the province has at least one. The lodges are  all fairly well off financially.  Contractor Fisher, with his six men,  is making progress on his work of finishing the grading of upper Dominion  avenue for the Great Northern railway.  Joseph Ingram, of Phoenix, passed  the high school entrance examinations  at Nelson with flying honors. Out of  22 that passed the Phoenix boy was  second in the entire list, there being  twenty behind him.  " LoachtHIIIier Wedding.  Thursday Miss Amanda Losche and  Abner Hillier were married at the  residence of the bride's parents, Grand  Forks, by Rev. J. R. Robertson, pastor of the Presbyterian church. Mr.  Hillier is electrician at the Granby  mines, which position he has held for  a number of years, while Mrs. Hillier  has also been a resident of Phoenix  for some time. The happy couple  will settle down at housekeeping on  upper Knob Hill avenue.  In Memorlam.  Whereas, our esteemed brother,  Frank Loster, has been by accidental  death removed from our midst, we the  members of Phoenix Miners' Union,  No. 8, W.F.M., do hereby desire to  express our sorrow and sympathy to  his relatives in their season of affliction, and order that a copy of this  resolution be spread upon the minutes  and published in the Miner's Magazine and the local press, and that the  charter be draped in mournihg for  thirty days.

Here's lony- life to the Economist.  The municipal hilarity continues in  Nelson, and as the Greenwood Times  remarks, the all-absorbing question is  whether the mayor -is it or it is the  mayor. Particular people can take  their choice.  This week all of the dirty linen in  connection with the rich Providence  mine is. being washed in court. It will  be a good thing when the cases are  finished and Boundary's banner high  grade property is once more placed on  a dividend paying basis.  After numberless delays and exten  sive preparation, it now looks as though  the work of ex'ending the Great Northern westward from Midway would  be in active operation by the first of  next month. When it begins, there  ��� will be lively times orice more.  The tendency of the times in parts  of British Columbia to reduce Ihe  number of retail liquor licenses is one  that has been lonjf obtained in Alberta  and has been found to work well there.  In the past there has been altogether  too many of these licenses granted���  too many for the public and too many  for the dealers themselves. ,  Col.iLowery, of the Fernie Ledge,  threatens to resume publication of the  Claim, this time at Nelson. It will be  remembered that the Claim was at one  time barred the use of the .mail because  of its questionable contents but the  genial Crow's Nest sage promises to  tame the revivified Claim down  somewhat, and hopes to make it a  financial success.  Today the ballots will be cast and  counted in the by-election in Alberni.  Both parties claim to have the victory in sight, and both have had men  in the field for two or three weeks.  The chances fo,- the return of Ex Mayor  Mansrm, of Nanaimo, the Conservative  candidate, are more than good, however, and such a return will give the  government a more workable niajoiity  at Victoria. ,  WHAT EDITORS SAY  Gravk Matter.���Greenwood will  celebrate Dominion Day, 1967 The  intervening period will allow sufliciene  time for the resident corpses to be decently buried.���Greenwood Times.

The reasons for this belief are many, but the  principal one is that the voters have  absolute faith in Premier McBride and  his government.���Nelson Economist.  PROVINCIAL.  A new Presbyterian church is being  erected at Cranbrook.  The sum of $5,000 has been paid  for a federal building site at  Fernie.  British Columbia coal, from Fernie,  may displace the Pennsylvania article  on the C.P.R. prairie division. \ :  Contractor Kelly, of Winnipeg, .put  in the lowest tender for the new federal  building at Vancouver, which will  cost nearly $400,000.  Maxwell Smith, Dominion fruit inspector, thinks fruit growing will become the chief industry of British  Columbia. He evinently has not seen  the mines of this province. :  It is the intentention of the government, due to a request of the C. P.  R., not to issue liquor licenses indiscriminately along the line of the new  railway to Nicola lake, construction on  which is just beginning for 45 miles.  The Similkameen Star has-"gleaned"  from outside channels of information  that overtures are in process of form  ulation whereby the townsite of Princeton will shortly be acquired by  President Hill, of the Great Northern.

Rossland's miners' union celebrated  its tenth anniversary last Monday.  Last week's Rossland ore shipments  were 6,260 tons, making 181,888 for  1905.  About 3,000 tons of coal per day is  being mined, by the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co. at present.  The shaft of the Centre Star at  Rossland is to be deepened 200 feet,  requiring two months' time.  ������ The new 30-drill air'compressor is  expected to be in operation at the St.  Eugene mine by tht first of August.  '' A representative of a New York  syndicate is now looking over the  ground on Cold water creek, Nicola,  for a smelter site.  An effort is now said to be in progress for the merging of the White  Bear, California Giant' and other  properties at Rossland  Ore carrying $131,134.60 to the ton  in gold values is rich even for British  Columbia. That is the result report  ed of one assay of ore fiom the" new  discovery on the Swede group at  Poplar. -  Fifty tons of pigiead daily will-soon  be turned out of the Trail refinery,  now that another lead stack has been  blown in at the Trail smelter. A  large portion of the output will be  marketed in Japan and China.  Wm. Fleet Robertson, provincial  mineralogist, is making a thousand  mile horseback tour of the northern  pait of the province, through territory  to be traversed by the Grand Trunk  Pacific. - His report should be ol  great interest.  The ore crushing machinery at ' the  big Biitannia mines, Howe Sound, was  started up last week, the ore  crushed  being stored in the bins at the head of  >>  the tramway by which it will   be   con  <-  veyed to the beach for shipment t'�� ihe  company's Crofton smelter.  . During the fi-cal year just closed,  the Hall Mines smelter, at Nelson,  treated 16,411,070 lbs of lead, which  was sent by 84 mines. The r total  amount ofthe ore received was 36,611,  422 lbs., from which the amount of  lead given above was obtained.  Some i.f ihe Liberal papers of this  province have quite gone the limit in  their criticism of Honorable Richard  McBride, the premier. At least he  thinks so, and ���i.opo'ies to invoke '.he  aid of the courts to put a slop to the  matter. Accordingly, suit has been  entered against the Victoria Times for  $10,000 damages. A free press is a  good thing, but there is a difference  ibetween liberty and license,  Popular and Picturesque. '  The only thing necessary to make  the Denver and Rio Grande the most  popular, as it has ever been known the  most pleasant and most picturesque  way to cross the continent, has cbme  about. This is the establishment of  through sleeping car service.  In connection with the O.R. & N. a  through Pullman Standard Sleeper is  now run from Portland to Denver,  leaving Portland at 8.15 p.m., arriving  at Salt Lake at 8.40 a.m. the second  morning,' leaving Salt Lake at 3.50 p.  m. and arriving at Denver 4.20 p m.  the following day. This schedule  gives passengers sev-.n hours stop over  in Salt Lake, affording an opportunity  to visit the Mormon capital as well as  a daylight ride through thu grandest  scenery in the world.

The time to'advertise, observes the  f Fernie Ledge, is when business is quiet  and   when  you need money; yet how-  few advertisers realize this.   Ordinarily  i  j when times are slack the first  cutting  1 down of expenses 'is the printing bill,  and with rent'in arrears, notes falling  due, and the shadow of the sheriff on  the doorstep the advertisement is  stopped and the advertiser vainly ima-  i gines that he cannot afford tbe expense.  !     This is folly.  On the other hand, 'when business  is brisk, when thi storeis'so crowded  that the customers fall orer each other  in the mad rush to purchase, and when  the merchant has not time to eat his  lunch, its then he wildly grabs his hat  and scurries off to ihe printer and  spreads his business in the paper,    rt  This also is folly. ,    :  When you have more business than  ryou can attend to, why do you waste  'your money in bringing additional  crowds to your store when your doors  are so blockaded that they cannot get  in?  ���  Isn't this folly? ;.  On the other hand when your clerks  are idle and the flic* are playing tag  with the spiders and you don't kn6w  where, to turn for money, wouldn't it  be wise to call around and spring yourself on an advertisement that would  j help you out of your difficulties.  We'll write that kind for you.  This is wisdom.  Are you going to get wise ?

One car ol  ore k now at the Midway station ready  for shipment, and another" has been  hauled as far as Westhridge, a total  of about 50 tons of an approximate  net value of $10,000. ,,  The mine or rather, group of mines  is distant from the terminus of the  Columbia and Western at Midway  about fifty iniU-s. and sixty from Greenwood. The property is owned by the  Vancouver and Boundary Creek Mining and Develop.oent company, the  principal shareholders being residents  of Greenwood.  Tlie.group, is located on Wallace  mountain at Beaverdell, near the junction of Beaver creek with the West  Fork of Kettle river. 'I he ore now  bt-in^ shipped is taken from a tunnel  tapping tlie .lead at a depth .of about  135 feet. ..The paystreak is 30 inches  wide and very little sorting is. required  All th-j leads in the group,' with the  exception of No'2, arc in granite.  At present 27 men are-:employed  under Supt. Vacher, who has had  charge of the work since the company  commenced'.operations. Besides development work being done on the  No. 1 and No.2 leads, his force mines  Irom 20 to.,30; tons uf shipping ore  per week running about $260 to the  ton.  The first shipment waSjinade from the  Sally in April 1901, when 16 tons  were sent to the' Nelson smelter and  ruturned gross values of $95 per ton.  The second shipment was in February,  1964, when "a car containing'42,820  pounds, s-ent to the Trail smelter returned 3,519 ounces of silver valued  at $1,876. The following month a  second car was shipped to Trail. The  lot weighed 43,4*4. pounds, and contained 4,778 ounces silver and 2.086  pounds of lead, together valued at  $2,627. This carload netted $2,318  above cost of railway transportation  and treatment. In April, 1904, 32,206  pounds were shipped, containing 3,175  ounces of sil\er and 840 pounds of  lead, from which the gross amount realized was $1,698. -  At that time'there was'"-no wagon  road between the Sally and Beavrr  dill, so shipments could be made only  during the winter sea-on, the ore being  rauhided down Wallace mountain to  Beaverdell and hauled from there in  sleighs to the railway station at Midway. As a consequence no further  shipments were made until last Feb  ru.'ry, when 41,829 pounds, were sent  to Trail. This gave 3,994 ounces silver and 2,761 pounds lead,and having  a gross value of $2,376. The fifth car  lot shipment was made in March last.  This contained 42,577 pounds, giving  4,79s ounces silver and 3,108 pounds  lead, and having a gross value of  $2,690. This ore averaged 225.40 oz.  silver to the ton and 7.30 per cent  lead. The railway and treatment  charges on this car amounted' to  $311.76, leaving $2,378, from which  must be deducted the cost of mining  and hauling to the railway, the latter  amounting to between $15 and $20 a  ton.  The Sally is at an elevation of 4,350  feet above the level of the sea, and is  nearly 2,000 feet above the valley of  the West Fork. The Sally group was  located in 1897 by Stewart and Felto,  who sold it to the present owners.  In all about fifty claims have been  located on Wallace mountain. The  only other property that has shipped  to any extent is the Rambler, situated  about a mile from the Sally in an easterly direction. It is claimed that the  Sally leads run into the R.ambler.Stan-  dard, Black Diamond and other claims  on Dry creek. On the Rambler two  mm are taking out a ton of shipping  ore weekly from a 3-foot lead.  With the building ol the Midway  and Vernon railway, which is now assured, Wallace mountain will become  the greatest silver producing camp fn  British Columbia. The leads have  been uncovered and shipments made  from the Sally on one side and the  Rambler on the other side of the  mountain, which proves that the leads  are continuous for between two and  three miles east and west. This alone  means that some forty claims will become shipping mines. There are also  the silver gold claims of Carmi, Cranberry, China, Kelly and Beaver creeks  and the large bodies of lower grade  ores some distance up Beaver creek.  LEAD HAS STURDY  RIVAL IN COPPER  Latter is the Admitted  Mainstay of the Mining Districts.  The lead industry is not the only  one that is looking up in the Kooten-  ays, although events have conspired  to give it special prominence, says the  Nelson Tribune.' Copper is, alter all|"  the mainstay ofthe mm n^ distric',and  has been the chief source of altiactibh  to capitalists. ::The cause is riot far :6  seek. Copper finds 'a much,/.larger  market, and in West Kootenay and  Yule it is being produced on ��� a con:  siderable scale, cheaper than anywhere1  else oil the continent. . i   '....��'  This result at the Granby   works   is:  due   to  a   lombination   of   favorable  circumstances���an   enormous   deposit  of selffluxing ore, so  disponed   that   it'  can be quarried ou: at a. minimum costV  unlimited-,' capital,    and    conditions  would have ensured 'the"'same' results  a'most anywhere.    The Granby   properties are not; the .only   ones,   by   any  means, that   promise,, splendid results,  although in re.rpect of cost   ot   mining  the ore they; are ' unique."-''.' The   Montreal and. Boston, just   taken   ovcr   by  the Dominion Copper Co., the leading  mines in the Ko sland'camp, and   the  copper properties of-the'...Similkameen  nmy be classified with the latter.  ���   That all these  are  about   to  enter  upon an:era t-f.economical   and   profi  table operation there can lie nt) doubt,  this is the branch of mining  on which  the future of southern British Columbia  mainly     depends.      It     is    already  attracting .the alteniion   of the leading capitalists   of   the  east,   and   any  developed  copper  property    of .merit  can find a   ready   purchaser.     During  the last month thcTribune has received  applications from tluee reliable sources  for properties of this class.    Buyers ol  prospects may be scarce; buyers of developed, or-partly  developed,   copper  claims of merit are plentiful.  SAI>TE ROBINSON.

M��  Fox & Ross may know so much  about the Boundary country tha: they  are acquainted with the output of the  Mother Lode mine, but it does not look  like it from the above effusion. As a  matter of fact, the Mother Lode minel  is outpuuing from 3,000 to 4,000 tons  per *eek, and it requires all the  shippers in the Boundary, including  the giant Granby, to bring the weekly  output up to 20,000 tons of ore.  The King Edward mines, wherever  they are located, may be meritorious  properties, but to persons familiar with  the Boundary, statements like the  above are silly in the extreme. It is  more than doubtful if any mining  proposition in the Boundary can be  made profitable by selling shares at  three cents each. That day has long  gone by, and F'ox & Ross, if they are  reputable and reliable, should know  this fact.  NERVOUSNESS AND  WEAKNESS CURED  BY PEJU-NA.

"I began to use It about seven months  ago for weakness and nervousness,  caused from overwork and sleeplessness, and found that In a few days 1  began to grow strong, my appetite Increased and I began to sleep better,  consequently my nervousness passed  away and tbe weakness In the pelvic  organs soon disappeared and I have  been well and strong ever since."

A dispatch from Victoria states that  Premier McBride has entered an  action against the Times for $10,000  damages for an editorial in which it  was charged that his government was  conceived in treachery and maintained  in power by even viler tactics, and also  charging him with conniving with the  returning officer in the Fernie election  ca.-.c to steal a seat rightfully belonging  to the Liberals.  The paragraph is as follows :  "The government of Hon. Richard  McBride was conceived in treachery of  the blackest character and it has been  maintained by tictics of an even viler  character. Finding himself practically  in a minority in the legislature of the  province, the premier connived with  the relurnini�� officer of Fernie constituency to steal one seat from the Lib  eral party. That conspiracy was daringly and brazenly executed. The  returning officer was a partner in business with the minority candidate who  was declared returned although he had  received but a minority ol" the votes I  cast by the electors of Fernie.''

First comes the grand military drill in  which   one   hundred   pretty   prancing  ponies take part, led by the wise pony  leader, "Rosebtrry."  They march and  countermarch and go through difficult  evolutions with the precision of highly  irained"soldiers."  Then comes the joyous May-Pole c"ance  when  clustered  around the saw-dust arena, some dozen  children mounted on   the  diminutive  Shetlands, go through the mazes of the  dance.     The   demure   ponies   enter  heartily into the  festive spirit as well  as the youngsters and no prettier sight  has ever been seen.  Then comes the sagacious dogs who  perform the parts   of fire-laddies.    A  i.iiiimiui.6��h.����m^.  , minature house is in   flames;  the in-  ing was kept up till late, and the net' trepid firemen rush to the  rescue with  proceeds were $100.95. their tiny hose-carts, and  soon have a  stream playing on the burning building; a baby is Rescued from flames; a  patrol filled with dog policemen dashes  up and assists the ,dog firemen, etc.i  the clown dogs, ponies and monkeys  all the while furnishing lots of; hilarity  for the little ones. This is But an outline ofthe many startling wonders to  be seen with Cozad's California  Equine, Canine and Simian Pi.radox,  when it appears here on Thursday  next..' , ��� .  THE  NELSON, B.C.  B.
