Special Trains, Good Prizes andiGood Weather  Make  the Event  Successful.  Perfect weather assisted materially  in making the Dominion Day celebration in l'hoenix this year the success  it was in every way. Two special trains  arrived over ihe C. P. R. in the morning, bringing about 250 passengers, in  addition to the large number that arrived from the surrounding valleys by  team. One train came from Midway  and Greenwood and the other from  Grand Forks, with good representations from each place. Music for the  celebration was furnished by the newly  organized Phoenix I��'ire Brigade Band,  and remarks were heard frequently  complimentary to the article furnished  by the musicians, who have had their  instruments less than a month.  There were some disappointments,  one being that no outside hose teams  mustered up courage to contest in those  events, for which the largest money  ever offered in the Boundary���$400���  was put up. However, it resulted in  the money being left in Phoenix.  In baseball but one outside team  arrived to compete, that from Greenwood, but in the machine rockdrilling  events, no less than ten teams entered,  details of the latter being found in  another column in this issue. Phoenix  won the baseball game with a score of  5 to 3.  Hose reel racing took place between  the regular Phoenix team and one  made up by the Eagles, which had  been practicing somewhat. In the  hub and hub contest, the Eagles broke  their harness in the first start, and  w.ere fairly be^s"-tbersr'cord time.;!":  the wet test, however, they redeemed  themselves. The Phoenix team made  good time in running, but for the first  time in a long time, failed to get water  ���being one of those flukes that will  occur occasionally. The Eagles then  ran and secured water in 26J/. seconds.  Horse racing on Dominion avenue  resulted as follows : Free for all, running, J-4 mile, four entries���Joe Richter first; Chas. Buber nf Midway, second, followed by E. Lanneau and Ole  Berg of Greenwood. Owners up, }{.  mile, Joe Richter first, Chas. Buber's  Lady May second. Pony race���Chas.  Richter first, Ole Berg second.

Celebration   Echoes.  Piper Gunn, of Nelson, brought over  his bag pipes, entertaining crowds of  highlanders and lowlanders at the Hotel Balmoral during the two days. The  Cock o' the North and .other tuneful  lays could be heard there at any time,  day or night, and the highland fling  was much in evidence.  The baseball club erected a commodious grand stand for the occasion on  the ball park, which was well patronized  All stores, postoffice, bank, custom  house and mines were closed Monday-  Five banners were flung to the breeze  across various streets. One of them  admonished the visitors to "Watch  Phoenix Grow," the Phoenix being  represented by the mythical bird. The  electric light decorations, under the  direction of XV. C. Hower, added considerably to the brilliancy of the occasion after daik.  Supt. Holman, of the Mother Lode,  was noticed here during the celebration.  Treasurer Wooster, of the Granby  company, who comes to Phoenix regularly twice a month on business, came  up- Monday' especially to take in the  celebration and get awa> from the excessive heat in his home town.  :  Wm. Murray, who took second  prize in the mount lin climbing contest,  says that Aichie Murray, of Grand  Forks, who took first prize, could give  a mountain goat pointers on hosv tc  get down a mountain quickly.  Secretary McEachem, of the cele-  oration committee, was one of busiest  men in town, and worked indefatigu-  ably for the success of the events. As  fast as prizes were earned he issued  checks for the respective amounts.  George H. Collins and Mike Calla  ghan, who have recently discontinued  work on the Washington and Idaho  up the North Fork, were interested  celebration visitors.  Saturday at Rossland, with C. E.

The Denoro Mines,  Ltd., is the owner of other mining  pfoperty.  G. B. Dennis, of Spokane, who is  acting for a strong New York syndicate, and on whose behalf J. L. Mar  tin recently bonded the Marshall,  Monte and Forty groups in this camp,  is expected to arrive here shortly with  some eastern engineers to look over  the property and decide where to begin the diamond drilling that has been  determined upon.  A meeting of the Red Rock, Lulu,  Bald Eagle and War Eagle companies  was scheduled to be held at Sherbrooke, Que., on June i6th, to authorize selling the properties to the newly  organized Phoenix Amalgamated Copper mines, Ltd. On June 27th another meeting was to be held to ratify the  proceedings of the previous meeting  This is all incident and necessary for  the getting of the affairs of the Phoenix Amalgamated in shape to begin  operations.

Boundary   smelters if satisfactory ar-  ' rangements   for  its   treatment can be  made, but some of it at least, is l'kely  to go over to the Trail works.  George S. Waterlow, vice-chairman  of the Snowshoe Gold and Copper  Mines, Ltd., who has been in eastern  Canada for some time, left Montreal  this week for British Columbia, and  matters will come to a focus likely on  his arrival.  Trall-Pfaoenlx Ball Came.  One of the best ball  games  of  the  season   was that played on   the   local  grounds Tuesday   afternoon   between  the      Trail      nine,      champions      of]  the Kootenays, and the Phoenix team,  Boundary Mining Notes  Following the announcement, made  a couple of wetks ago by the Pioneer,   so far this year champion nine   of  the  that the Snowshoe mine had been sold  culright to the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd. (C.  P. R.), it now appears certain that this  well known and excellently developed  Phoenix property will be started up  in full blast some time before the first  of next month���if present arrangements materialize, the ore being shipped to the Trail smelter, where the  copper smelting facilities have recently  been considerably increased.  Il is known that Charles Biesel, of  Rossland, who has been business  manager of the Centre Star and War  Eagle mines in that camp for some  time, will be in charge of operations  at the Snowshoe when it resumes. Mr.  Biesel was a visitor here last Tuesday,  and took occasion to go all over and  through the Snoeshoe mine, as far as  it could be done without unwatering  the shafts, being shown around by XV.  XV. Carter, who has been in charge of  the property while not being worked.  Mr. Biesel exptcts to return shortly,  when something definite will be known 1  about the time of reopening the mine, j  It is likely that when ore begins to  be sent to the Trail smelter from the  Snowshoe, il will be shipped in box  cars, so as to obviate the necessity of  bringing back empty ore dumps the  1 25 miles of railhaul, and at the same  time utilizing the merchandise cars  coming into the Boundary and now going out empty.  It is   possible   that   the, ore ol  the  Boundaiy.

McNicol spent Sunday and Monday as the guests of E. W. Monk, on  Kootenay lake, on a boating and fishing trip  An electric hoist is to be installed  at the Strathmore, near Greenwood.  Active surface operations at the site  of the new $100,000 Granby shaft are  now under way.  The last car of ore shipped from  the Skylark, netted the company over  $5,000. It gave returns of $162 per  ton.  Two diamond drills are being worked at the McKinley mine, Franklin  camp, and will later be operated at  the Banner.  J. B. Macaulay is working a small  force of men on his property in Kim-  berly camp, about six miles from  Greenwood up Boundary creek, where  he is getting good values in the tunnel  being driven.  Work has been started on the foundations foi the new ore bins for the Dominion Copper Co.'s Idaho mine.  This mine has never shipped a ton of  ore yet, but will be one of the largest  producers of the company before long.  It is claimed that the recent turnover of the Oro Denoro mine to the  British Columbia Copper Co., was on  the basis of $1 25,000 for ihe property.  Some 15,500 shares of B. C. Copper were exchanged at the market,  about $S.oo.  Only one of Boundary's three sine  ters was in operation all of this week,  that at Boundary Falls. The B. C  Copper smelter is being extensively  enlarged, and the Granby smelter was  blown out for the holidays to make  repairs. The shipment and treatment  tonnage is, consequently, light this  week.  Sunday a small section of the floor  of the flume at the Granby smelter  caved in, necessitating the bljwing out  blast furnaces a little sooner than an  ticipated for Dominion day. Seven  'furnaces are now in blast once more,  the No. 2 furnace now unde.goin:; extensive enlargements, and will likely  be idle most of this month.  A meeting of the shareholders of  the Denoro Mines, Lid,, was held last  Two Weddings this Week.  Last Tuesday Rev. Samuel Lundie  officiated at the wedding of Mabel  Lucretia Russell, of Grand F'orks, and  Samuel Stanley Addis jn, the ceremony  taking place at the residence of the  bride's sister, Mrs. Meclill, in the  Graves-Williams building. Mr. Addison formerly lived at Stony Mountain, Manitoba, and is now lot omotive  engineer at the Granby smelter, the  couple making their home in future at  Grand  Forks.  1906 TAX VALUE  ���   IS $535,450  Roll Made Up by   City   Assessor.

Announcement was made at the  Mother Lode mine of the British Columbia Copper Co., last Saturday night,  that thereafter the time of surface men  at the property would be nine hours,  with the same nay as heretofore. The  Granby Co. put the nine hour rule into force at its mines last week, and the  Dominion Copper Co. did the same  thing this week, the surface employees  of all kinds working nine hours, now,  instead of ten, as heretofore." At the  Mother Lode mine the rule has been  heretofore to work nine and a half  hours, it being now cut down to nine  hours. Thus all three of the big operating companies in the Boundary have  voluntarily made the work day for  their surface employees somewhat  shorter, with the same pay as heretofore.

They are simply making good and sawing wood while the moon shines,  They should be certain, though, that  they do not live in glass houses.  Some of the good people of Grand  Forks ought to muzzle that correspondent that sends out so much misinformation about the place. Boundary  people know that much of it has no  foundation in fact, but outsiders are  not so well posted. Boosting is a good  thing as long as the truth is being adhered to.  Greenwood is to have its telephone  system rebuilt on the metallic circuit  plan, such as Phoenix has enjoyed for  several years. It is-time something  was done for the town at the foot of  the hill in this regard, and when the  B. C. Telephone Co. has expended  $10,000 or $15,000 in this way, the  system in the Boundary will be in first-  class- shape.  Travellers from the North Fork report that splendid progress is being  made by Contractor Tierney in the  building of the Kettle Valley lines up  that way.

On arrival at Vancouver again, he was arrested and will  be tried on one of the several charges  still hanging over him. His release is  one blot on the government of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier that none of the Grit  press attempts to justify.  Greenwood merchants get a large  amount of business from Phoenix.  This fact needs no demonstration.  The livery stable proprietors in both  towns can testify to the large amount  of traffic between them. And yet,  not a mov.: by those most benefited is  being made to improve the mail service  from Greenwood to Phoenix. Supposedly it requires two days for the  regular transmission of mails between  the two copper cities, which are only  five miles apart. In reality it often takes  from three to four days, and we do not  know how much longer. If the au  thonties at Ottawa would stop changing postmaster-generals long enough  to let one of the honorable gentlemen  become familiar with the business,  through his subordinates, it might  help matters some.  Si.WM FRUIT PRIZES IN SPOKANE.  Iti-  T.UI   Prcaiimt la   these   Depirtmeatf  crease* trim $1,750 _��� S5.IM.  Five thousand one hundred and fifty  dollars in premiums in the fruit and  vegetable departments are offered this  year by the Spokane Interstate Fair,  as against $1,750 offered in the same  departments last year. This year's  Fair opens September 24, and will  last two weeks instead of one as heretofore, and in every way will be more  than twice as strong. Contests between the counties will be chief among  the attractions, for the Spokane Chamber of Commerce has donated $2500  for premiums to be< given by the counties or districts making the best exhibit. The first prize will be $1,090  cash; -the second, $500; the third,  $300: the fourth, $200, and the balance will be divided between the other  counties and districts exhibiting, and  for the expenses of this contest. -Besides these, the Fair management will  give premiums amounting to $1500 in  the fruit department.  Old Chronic Sorer  As a dressing for old chronic sores,  there is nothing so good as Chamberlain's Salve. While it is not advisable  to heal old sores entirely, they should  be kept in a good condition, for which  this salve is especially valuable.

Ottawa sol-  ons will do the same directly���when  they've all had a crack at that Lord's  Day Observance bill. ���  South Wales was recenly visited by  an earthquake shock, which naturally  stirred up the inhabitants. If it shook  up some of the proper names in that  country, they might be more pronounceable.  It appears that poor old General  Stoessel, the Russian commander who  surrendered at Port Arthur to the victorious Japanese, will lose his head for  saving the heads of thousands of his  compatriots, who would have been sacrificed had the siege been prolonged.  That is the Russian style of doing  business, and the sooner the style is  ohanged the better for Russia and the  rest of the world.

While it is being emasculated to  a considerable degree, it will doubtless  be sufficiently drastic when finally  passed so that it will make people all  over the Dominion sit up and take  notice. Its strict enforcement will be  the surest method of its quick repeal.  When the legislators at the Dominion  capital tackle the job of legislating the  people at large into being good, they  are running up against a pretty good  sized proposition.  Anaconda.

While but one make of drill was  used, the Rand, which is the only one  used at the Granby mines, where 40  50 drills are constantly at work, this  fact is a source of pride and gratification to R. P. Williams, disttict manager of the Canadian Rand Drill Co.,  and the results of the contest are of  more than ordinary interest 10 the  public generally.  A pipe line was laid on tbe surface  from the Granby mines, and air at 95  pounds pressure was furnished. The  rules of the contest were that all teams  entering should use the same make of  machine, with a 2'/? inch bit to start,  decreasing y& of an inch to the fool,  all contestants being union men in  good standing. The work was on the  surface, and tripod was used for mounting the drill, a platform being erected  in advance.  The contest . work consisted in  setting up the tripod, mounting and  connecting the drill and getting in as  deep a hole as possible in the time allowed���15 minutes. Before starting  the tripod had to be laid out on the  platform, with every nut and setscrew  loosened, the machine lying by the side  of it, with hose disconnected and steel  out of chuck.  Prizes were awarded as follows:  first, $150; second, $25 plus enhance  fees,which made $75 for second money.  Following is the result of- each of the  ten teams entered, with mine from  which they came and depth attained -.  Matheson and McQuoid ,Gold Drop,  9 feet, 1 l/.  inches.  McDonald and Rankin, Brooklyn,  8 feet 6 inches.  Rutherford and McLean, Gold Drop  8 feet, 43/( inches.  Bliss and Neill, Brooklyn, 7 feet 4  inches.  Olson and Peterson, Granby, 7 feet,  11 x/2 inches.  Mitchell and Rea, Granby. 7 feet,  9^2 inches.  Granger and Newton, Brooklyn, 8  feet, yk inch.  Black and Anderson, Granby, 7  feet, 10 inches.  Vichari and Hughes, Granby, 7  feet, 63<( inches.  Cook and Mason, Granby, 8 feet,  2}{ inches.  The men themselves, as well as the  spectators took great interest in the  contest, and vied with each other to  make the biggest record. Regarding  the result of Matheson and McQuoid,  there was some dispute among the  timekeepers, it being asserted that  they ran a minute over time, but even  deducting for this they were ahead of  all the other teams, and were finally  awarded first prize. The timekeepers  were Andrew Anderson, John Mclver  and John Allen, with M. H. Kane as  judge.  j B. C. MINING  Rossland's ore shipments for the  first half of   1906 were   161,419 tons-  Coppers, Ltd., is ihe title of a new  concern, operating the Golden Sover-  t ign group in Aspen Grove Camp.  Boundaiy and Kootenay min<-s  shipped 32,949 tons of ore last week,  making 851,71 ' lnns ^nr 'nt: year t0  date.  Con. Mining & Smelling Co. of  Canada (C. P. R.) is operating the  Eureka-Richmond group, near Sandon.  Thirty men are to be employed at  the' Ptarmigan, Windemcie, steadily,  and an output of 70 tons of silver-lead  ore per week is counted on. ,  Manager Jas. Cronin, of ihe St. Eugene mine, at Moyie, says there is  more ore in sight in the mine than  ever before in its history.  The International Coal & Coke Co.  has started work on its second lot of  100 coke ovens, to keep up with the  demand for coke, caused by increase  of Boundary smelting facilities.  The expenditure of $2,500,000 in  the next two years in providing a new  system of water supply for hydraulic  mining purposes, is planned by the  Guggenheims of the American smelter  trust, who recently acquired the enormous holdings of the Consolidated Cariboo Company in the Cariboo District.  Operations will then be carried on on  a scale unparalleled in the history of  hydraulic mining.  The lead bounty earned during the  fiscal year ending June,.30, amounted  to $85,000,00. The lead production  (June estimated) amounted to 25,000  tons, as compared with 25,838 tons in  the previous year, but of that amount  ritjoo tons was exported in a crude  state. The lowest price for lead during the fiscal year was ^��,13 8s 9d., on  July 1, 1905, and the highest ^17  12s 6d, on Januaay 4. No. bounty,  was earned in December, January,  May and June.  RELIEVED BY PERU-Nfl.  Mde. Joseph Beaudoln, 69 Hue St.  Olivier, Quebec, P. Q., Oan., writes:  "Poruna Is wonderful for indigestion.  I eat whatever 1 want and no longer feel  any oppression.  "Having had dyspepsia for a long  time and having tried various other  remedies, I decided to try Peruna and  with the fourth bottle ot It I was perfectly cured.  "For this reason "I recommend it to all  those who are suffering with that terrible malady, dyspepsia.  "I hope that all who are afflicted in  this way will take Peruna as 1 did."  The experience of Mde. Beaudoln  ought to be sufficient proof to anyone  of the value of Peruna in cases of catarrhal dyspepsia. If you suffer from  stomach catarrh in any of its various  forms, pive Peruna a fair trial, avoiding  in the meantime all such indiscretions  in diet as would tend to retard a cure,  and yon will soon be rewarded by a  normal appetite and healthy digestion.
