Hutton, Grand Forks  ���Biner Wins Trophy.  "O^.*^     '���"**  Nelson's     unique    festival,    the  Chahko Mika, which is to close today, Saturday, has evidently turned  out the  success   that its promotors  prophesied for it. The competitions,  for which   valuable  prizes   were offered were   all  eagerly  entered  for  and keenly contested.    Greenwood  is exulting over the honors won by  its amateur champion  trap shooter,  Dan  Biner,  who  by  breaking   178  birds out of 200 captured the highly  prized Ink and Ward' trophy.    The  handicap events in  the  same sport  were also shared by Greenwood, A..  Logan dividing the honors with  J.  Watson of Crawford bay by, breaking 45.out of 50.   Grand Forks sent  some of its  crack riflemen,   one of  whom, F. Hutton, shooting.at 600,  800 and 1000 yards made the record  of the Chahko Mika by scoring 93  out of a  possible   105   points, thus  winning the Daily News "cup.  Phoenix sent several  teams  to enter for  the  machine   drilling  contest,   the  result of which  has' not reached us  before going to press.  The prize for the best float in the  grand parade was won . by the  Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship  society. It was the most novel one  in the procession and fully deserved  the recognition afforded it, representing as it did the, coming to  America   of < Lief  Erickson   and his  followers.

The members 'of the  local- lodge  of the Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship   Society   assembled   in    large  numbers on Sunday, July 12th, ,for  the purpose   of installing  in office  the  newly-elected officers who are  to guide the destinies of the society  I in Phoenix for the next six months.  The ceremony was carried out with  becoming dignity by Messrs. Emil  Carlson, A.   O. Johnson   and Gus.  Peterson,    to   whose   indefatigable  and unselfish efforts  is  due  in  no  small degree   the   enviable position  the society now   holds among other  fraternal  and   benefit organisations  in this city.    The installation having  terminated, the brethren were entertained to refreshments by the ladies  of the order  and   the  remainder of  the evening was occupied in listening to the speeches and suggestions  of the  new officers,   the  names  of  Mining Notes of British Columbia  names  whom are as follows: Pres., lid.

Day And Night Phone  Within the very near future,  Phoenix will be in phone communication at all hours of the day and  night with Rossland, Nelson, Grand  Forks and Greenwood, and of  course with all other points within  that radius.      O. D. Bush,   the   en-  According to the Portland Canal  Miner, the Clothier Bros, have taken a lease on the Silver Cup, and  they have organized a leasing comr  pany composed mostly of. New  Hazelton and Prince Rupert people.  This will make another mine operating the year round.  A petition signed by mining men  and business people of Hope and  others directly interested in the progress of Summit camp, has been  forwarded to the Minister of Public  Works, asking that the Trail from  the Coqihalla river to Summit cat-rip  be re-opened as early as possible. ���  Seven thousand six hundred and  twenty-two tons of ore from the  mines of the Kootenay and Boundary were treated at the smelter of  the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company at Trail during . the  past week,_ making the total tonnage treated for the^year to date  173,861 tons.���Trail News.,  The Omineca Herald says that  Frank A. Brown has returned to  Hazelton with the report of a new  copper-gold strike made near McDonald's saw mill above Telkwa  this spring. Mr. Brown says that  recently another group of claims  was staked in the same locality by  J. Dravenstott and associates. The  latter saw samples of the ore and  says it is strong in copper.  As the result of the recent rebuilding and 'enlarging of one of  the copper furnaces at the Trail  smelter,   the   company's   mines  in  Chester F. Lee, mining engineer  from Seattle,' recently arrived in  Princeton and went up to inspect  the work on the Roaney hydraulics  on the Tulameen river, between  Princeton and Coalmont, where the  company has twenty men employed  getting the ditches and pipe line in  shape for hydraulicing. Several gold  and platinum specimens have been  taken from these placers. The leases  are located on the old south channel  of Granite creek and rich returns  are expected when the bedrock is  cleaned up.���-Similkameen Star.  Alex. Smith, manager ojLthe Surprise mine at Sandon,   and who recently returned  after  spending  the  winter in   Ontario, was  in town on  Friday last, says  a  recent issue of  the   Slocan  Record.       Mr.    Smith  stated   that    the   Surprise   people  would    build   a   concentrator   this  season.     The  new   cable   for.  the  aerial tram  is  being  strung.    Mr.  Smith said nothing in  reference to  the mine, but the fact  that regular  shipments  of high  grade  ore   are  being made, and that a mill  is to  be built is evidence that the ore reserves are satisfactory.  "I would not say that there will  be a boom���which no one wants to  see anyway���but there will be a  great increase in the legitimate mining development of the Similkameen  during the next few years, says L  W. Shatford,  M.P.P., who has re-  Petition Being Prepared  The  oft-repeated suggestions   of  the  Pioneer,   that  some action   be  taken  by  the authorities  to stock  Loon    lake    with   some    suitable  species of fish, have up  to the present met with  no   response, but the  friends  of   the   movement  will  be  pleased to  learn  that   the matter is  shortly to be brought to the attention of the parliamentary representative  of this   riding,   Hon.   Martin  Burrell,   in  the form of a petition.  The document, which is being prepared by W. H. Bambury,  will   be  ready for signature on  Tuesday at  Thos.   Brown's  store,   when  every  British subject in  the camp should  make a point of signing it.    Loon  lake is distant about five miles from  Phoenix.     It is about three-quarters  of a mile in   length   and probably a  quarter  ol  a  mile  in  width.    The  new government road runs  parallel  with it for its entire length.  THE JEWEL MINE  RUNS STEADILY  Mill Works Without Inter-  uption���New Body of  Ore Struck.  Visits Lillooet  Alderman M. Kane, who for the  past few years has spent considerable time prospecting in the Lillooet  district, and who possesses some  promising mining claims in that  section' of B.C., left on Thursday  morning for the purpose of com:,  pleting his usual annual assessment  work. Mr. Kane appears to think  that while other portions of the  province are likely to receive considerable  attention  in the  nearfu-  Reports from the jewel  mine on  Long lake, are of a decidedly grati.  fying character.    The  entire   fotce  of fifty or  sixty men are working  full time, and the  mill is affording  the liveliest of satisfaction to all concerned.    Below ground the.outlined  plan of development  is yielding the  most promising of results.    During  the  driving  of  the  raise from  the  400 to the 300 level a splendid body  of ore,  averaging  seven feet, was  struck.    The surface improvements  recently carried but include  a residence  for   the    mill   foreman,    P.  Brady.      W.

The last on  the list to come to grief is N.J.  Carson, phe of the springs of whose  machine was completely snapped in  two.

While Mr., Bush docs not  pretend to assume the role of a public, benefactor int the matter, the  fact remains that - this innovation  will prove a , highly useful conveni  erice to the commercial element and  a valuable asset to the camp.  the mines have..sent .down tr6m six  to seven hundred tons per day. -The  four furnaces will now accommodate  three hundred tons additional per  day, and this ore must come from  the   mines  in   Rossland.���Miner.  season..

The pseudo  husband is at liberty to return to  la belle France and contract another  marriage. So sweeping is the  French law on this subject, that it  matters not if the bridegroom is 70  years old, Jacques must gain the  consent of his father. The foreign  wife has no claim whatever on the  French estate 'of her deceased husband. The foregoing is the text of  a warning recently sounded by one  of the most prominent of London  magistrates, whose time has been  taken up listening to the pathetic  plaints of many of these misguided  English "widows." In view ofthe  fact that there has been a not inconsiderable influx of French immigrants into the prairie provinces and  British Cplumbia, the warning has  just as much significance to our own  Canadian girls as it has for those  to whom it was originally addressed.  Campbell-Bennett  The nuptials attending the wedding of William Munro Campbell to  Miss Elizabeth M. Bennett, were  quietly solemnized on Wednesday,  July 15, at St. John's church, by  the vicar, Rev. Laurence B. Lee.  The bridegroom has been for many  years associated with Phoenix, coming here from Belmont, Prince Edward Island. The bride is one of  Auld Scotia's fair daughters, and  claims the old burgh of Dreghorn  in Ayrshire as her birthplace. They  have taken up their residence on  Brooklyn avenue.  reptile, which by the way had to be  cleared at the custom house and  duty paid on it, is said to be quite  harmless and has the reputation of  being the inveterate foe of the rattle snake, a purpose for which it  is often tamed and kept around the  ranches in the lone star state. If  this is so, then its arrival in Phoenix is opportune, a den of rattlers  having been found and one of them  killed last Sunday under one of the  trestles adjacent to the town. The  new arrival has so far proved very  tractable, but there are times when  Mr. Maynard is almost under the  impression that he has swallowed  a neighbor's collie dog. At such  times he emits the bellow from  which he evidently derives its name  of "bull" snake. It is nearly seven  feet in  length  and   in   looks   much  resembles a rattlesnake.   ��.   Orange Organizer's Visit  J. W. Whiteley, organizer for the  Loyal Orange Association was in  town during the week looking into  the affairs of the local lodge here.  Mr. Whiteley reports much progress  and says that considerable of his  time has been taken up this year  in forming new lodges. The order  in British Columbia and the prairies  is increasing in numbers to a remarkable degree, said Mr. White-  ley, and before .long an additional  organizer will in all probability be  placed in the field. The organizer  left on Friday for Grand Forks to  take part in the initiation of a class  of new candidates.  ���Phone 56  P. O. Box 309  The Little Store  First Street.  McKay & Knight, Props.

At the end of the  Franco-Prussian war that remarkable people staggered the civilized  world by' paying off the Prussian  indemnity of approximately a million million of dollars in the incredibly short space of six months.  doctor'also'advances the theory that  the literature csf./ our very unwel-  come, visitors is oneynf the greatest  in 'the' world, but $. is within the  realms of conjecture that < the doctor's knowledge of Sanscrit is on  a' pac*rith;'that of his familiarity  with labor conditions in British  Columbia.  July 1,  Canada's natal day, will  also  be a  memorable  date  in the  history of the  navy of our cousins  to the  south, of us.    On, that day  the order of   the   American" naval  secretary,   forbidding   the   use   of  wine, beer, or  any  other alcoholic  beverages on the warships of Uncle  Sam went into effect.    One can now  imagine the scene in the wardroom  of a Russian ship on the reading, of  an-' invitationi   to dine  with   their  brothers under the stars and stripes.  In   this  connection it would  be interesting to know the part that he,  of grape" juice and  16 to 1 memory  has had to do  with an innovation  t  which, after all, will be watched with  more than ordinary interest by the  medical staffs of every naval service  in Europe.

In pursuance of Lord Strathcona's  bequest of $25,000 for the establishment of a leper asylum in England,  a farm has been purchased about  four miles from the town of Chelmsford There are, said to be twenty  known lepers in the British Isles.  The dreaded malady is said to have  been first introduced into Britain by  the returning crusaders.  One of the strangest looking  bears ever caught in the Revelstoke  district, is in the possession of H  Munro, who trapped and then ��hot  it. The hide of the animal is a  cream color, while its four paws are  a dark brown. It was extremely  fierce.  Quite a new and wide principle is  being adopted by the Imperial government in the formation of the  new naval flying corps. Any civilian  who qualifies himself can now enter  the service direct either as an officer  or air mechanic. The rate of pay is  higher than that of the submarines,  a wing captain receiving twelve dollars per day.  A french naval diver recently engaged off Cherbourg in the work of  recovering a lost torpedo, found the  projectile buried deeply in the sand,  but while in the act of extricating  it the propellor commenced to revolve at great speed cutting his airline. The man immediately seized  hold of the torpedo, which began to  move upwards and eventually land  ed him by the side of the warship's  boat.  terview with  Mr. Dennis, assistant  '   i  to thrpresident of the C.P.R. company^  "Since the  company   established  the Hosmer mine six years  ago  said Mr. Dennis, "large  sums have  ' been spent  in   an effort to make the  property   productive,   but   for   the  past two years the colliery has been  run   at   a steadily   increasing  loss.  TheF property in the first place was  only   primarily intended   to  supply  fuel   fcfr  our own   needs,   together  with coke for the Trail smelter.     It  was incapable of doing that, so the  only alternative left us was to close  it down.    It was' never  our  intention to work'it for the sale of coal.  "We realize  that  pur  action is  causing*the miners some inconvenience, abd  I  say  that  if the   mine  could have  been  operated   to  only  meet expenses, it would  never have  been  cldsed  down.      It was not  a  sound business proposition.  "As to the townsite and those  who are left with property on their  hands," continued Mr. Dennis, "we  have nothing to do with that. We  didn't own it. It was bought and  laid out by a local syndicate from  tbe Crow's Nest Pass Coal company. It was not situated on C.P.R.  property. We had supplied residences^ for our employees adjacent  to the mine. There is no doubt  but that some hardship will be imposed on those who have taken up  property in the town, but the company can in no sense be held responsible for that. We will be able to  employ some of those who have  been thrown out of work on our  other properties."  Stationery, Confectionery and Fancy Goods  Kodak Supplies and Wall Papers.
