CONTRACT LET TO  A PHOENIX FIRM  For  Twelve Miles   of  Pole   Line.  New  Last Monday a firm ofPhoeni^ contractors, Elliott, Woodard & Logue,  was awarded the contract for'the clearing of the balance of the right: of way  for the high tension pole line of the  West Kootenay Power & Light, Co.,  for its extension from Bonnington  Falls into the Boundary. The contract calls for doing this work for a  distance of over twelve miles, running  from Hardy mountain, back of Grand  Forks, to the town of Anaconda, ad  joining the city of Greenwood. ��� The  firm is now advertising for loc'men to  put to work at once on the ��� contract,  which mutt be completed inside of  three months.  - Elliott, Woodard & Logue have already established headquarters at  Fourth of July Creek wagon road  crossing, and will work both ways from  that point < n the surveyecl right of  way. The members of the firm are  experienced contractors, and will let  no grass grow under their feet, already  having started a crjw of 1111.11 and half  a dozen teams on the contract. They  are - offering from $2.75 to $3.25 per  day Tor laborers and axemen.  The right of way is to be cleared 99  feet wide, this wid'h figuring rut about  twelve acres to the mile, thus making  about 150 acres all tojd that will have  to be cleared on this contract, for the  double pole line, carrying the heavy  cables. This contract alone is expected io run into $10,000 or $12,000.  The firm will also furnish some of the  pjles, which are to be 30 feet long, 16  inohes in diameter a't the base and  nine inches in diameter at the top.  The contracts are all with the British  Columbia Contracting & Distributing  Co.,.Ltd., which is erecting the entire  line for ahe West Kootenay Power &  Light Co.*Ltd!  458,000 TONS  IN HALF YEAR  Boundary  Mines  Large  Boundary Mining Notes  Output   Is  With  Estimated    Value  $2,290,965.  of  MAYOR RUMBERGER RETURNS.  Was Glad to (let Back lo Phoenix From tbe  '.., ���'...[.Al: .~.\.East.  George W. Rumberger, mayor of  Phoenix, returned early this week from-  a months'visit to the east, and while  away, was in Toronto, Buffalo, Niagara  Falls, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Paul and other cities. He also  visited his brother, Amos H. Rumber  ger, formerly ajresidefit of Phoenix, at  Houtzdale, Penn.  Mr. Rumberger, as/is well known, is  a large shareholder in the Dominion  Copper Co., which is taking over the  holdings of the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated. It is presumed his visit  east was in that connection, but he did  not care to say anything about the  matter at present, preferring to let  officers of the company : make announcements. However, he is certain  that operations will bo resumed here  on the company's Brooklyn group in  an exceedingly short time.  The mayor spent a week in New-  York city, and it was so warm there  that he wished many times he was  back to enjoy the cool breezes of the  mountains of the Boundary. He  visited Coney Island,. a famous watering ..place near New York, and.says  that there were 299,999 other persons  there the same day that he happened  to select. At least, the papers so reported/ His worship evidently hasno  desire to live permanently in the east,  and- conies back better pleased with  the prospects of Phoenix than ever.  New Opera House Matter*.  The committee in charge of building the new oprea house and hall for  the Miners' Union, has been steadily  working on the project, and trying to get  the street grade at the site of the. pew  structure, corner Knob Hill avenue  and School Street. Plans have been  practically approved of, and secretary  Berry thinks that the matter will take  definite shape next week. The opera  house will be in the basement, with, a  sloping floor, conforming somewhat  with the slope of the lot, while the  lodge room will be on the floor above.  The building is to be 50x100 feet in,  size, practically covering the lot, arid-  will have entrances on Knob Hill avenue,. School street and Aetna avenue.  Latest Prices In Metnln.

'   r-  From the returns made  of the  ore  shipments for the  first half of  1905,  it now seems certain  that  the  prediction made at the first of the year,   that  the tonnage of Boundary mines for this  year  would  exceed   the  million  ton  mark, will bejverified ,by  the  end  of  December. - The total up to  the  end  of June has shown more than 450,-000  tons,- and during June and part of May  one'of the large shippers���the   Brook  lyn group in this camp���has been temporarily idle.   The reorganization plans  of thc coippany, owning  this property  provide for extensive  work,  and  this  will begin almost any  day,   according  to   those   best   informed.    Added  to  this is the fact; that  the  Granby Co.,  the   largest    shipping    company    in  British "Columbia,   will  have  its  two  new   furnaces  in   commission  shortly  after the first  of August,   which   will  give an additional output 6f those particular mines alone  of some   20,000  monthly, or say 100,000 tons  for  the  remaining five months of the year. All  this  is   in   addition   to  the  average  Granby output of about   50,000  tons  monthly.    Under ordinary conditions,  this"-assures  a   Boundary  tonnage  of  more than a   million   tons of copper-  gold ore" for 1905.  The output of the,Boundary for the  several months of igtos-J thus far, has  been figured to be as>foHows :  Work on the Preston is showing up  a fine lead of $10.0 ore.  Granby shares are now quoted at  _$.0,op flat on the Boston exchange;  The last two cars of ore from the  Skylark, without sorting, gave values  of about $70 per ton.  The shipment made this week from  the Mountain Rose is the last for th'.-  present, work having been discontinued there for the time being.  On the Gold Bug the long lunnel'ls  now in about 275 feel. The boiler is  not being used now for power, and the  balance of the work by Contractor  McHale is being done by hand.  The long tunnel on tlie Golconda,  in Deadwood camp, is now in 140 feet,  and a new contract will probably be  let shortly to continue it, about 200  feet being necessary to reach the  ledge.  The Phoenix syndicate operating  the Mavis, in the high grade belt, feels  much encourdged at the appearance of  the property after about three months'  work. At present they have a foot of  quartz carrying free gold.  An average of two cars ot ore per  day are being shipped from the new.  Granby mines workings on the Monarch claim. The company built; a  wagon road to the compressor building  where the ore is being loaded temporarily, ���  Two men are working on the Rambler on the West Fork and are taking  out and sacking two tons of high grade  ore a wetk. The ore nets in the  neighborhood of $70 a ton. A shipment will shortly be made to the  smelter.  WILL BUILD A  NEW CITY HALL  All Over the Boundary  City Fathers So Decided Wednesday.

The month of June, for the reason  mentioned, shows slightly the smallest  tonnage output of any month thus far  this year, the figures from the individual mines being approximately as  follows:  Mine Tonnage  Granby mines ..

Stevens, of  Houghton, Michigan. If there is anything worth knowing about the indus-  trg of copper mining that is not set  down in this book, it has not been  brought to our attention. The bulky  volume not only contains complete  data about the copper mine* of the  United States up to the present, but  those of Canada and the rest of the  world', the stories of each being written  in a business like, concise form. Mr.  Stevens has published the volume annually for several years, and is probably one of the best informed men in the  United States. His latest issue is well  worthy of persual and preservation by  any one having any interest in copper  mining. In this issue several pages  :are devoted to the leading producers  of the Boundary, including the Granby,  B. C Copper and Montreal & Boston  Consolidated.  V., V. & E. BILL.  Passed   tbe   Senate     Committee     Without  Opposition.  Ottawa, July 12.���The Vancouver,  Victoria & Eastern Railway bill was  called in the senate committee today  arid Hal. B. McGivern explained its  provisions.  The bill was passed without any opposition.  Senator Ferguson asked if the opposition to the bill was withdrawn and  he got a reply that it was.  Senator Templeman had charge of  the bill.  Nothing new in regard to the start  ing up of work at the Brooklyn group,  recently transferred from the Montreal  & Boston to the Dominion Copper  Co., has transpired, this week. The  details of the deal are now being closed  up, however, and there is every assurance that activity will prevail again at  the mines shortly.  At Wednesday's meeting of the city  council the" first steps *ere taken for the  long needed new city hall, the cquncil  accepting an offer of the Dominion  Copper Co. for. the purchase of lots  20 and 21, block A, of the Dominion  Copper Co.'s addition, for the nominal  price of $500. This location is on  the northwest corner of Montezuma St.  and Dominion Avenue, at the skating  rink. It is understood that it is the  intention of the city to erect a commodious building at a cost of from  $5,000 to $6,000 on the site, and a  .building committee, consisting of  Mayor Rumberger and Aldermen Bir-  nie, Carson and Marshall was appointed to have charge of the matter.  There were presen at the meeting  the Mayor and Alderman Marshall,  Brown Carson," Roderick-and Birnie,  and the following accounts were ordered paid:  Morrin, Thompson & Co.... $  Next week Friday it will be exactly  Tdtirteen years since Matt Hotter rand  Henry White located the Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill mines in this camp.  The recording had to be done at  Camp Mc Kinney, some 45 miles away.  Mr. Hotter has gone to his lon^ reward  but Mr. White is still interested here,  being a shareholder in the Granby Co.  and living in Spokane.  CASCADE WIPED  OUT BY FLAMES  2"  90  4  ro  69  75  7  20  258  ��5  18  90  6  *5  r  00  to  5��  Some  Little  $30,000  Loss  Insurance.  and No  Now   Left in  "Gateway."  Former  Thursday afternoon the little town  of Cascade, formerly called the "Gateway of the Boundary" was, visited by  fire, and most of the buildings left  from the other two disastrous fires  were burned to the ground.  The fire started in a barn ne-ir the  Cascade hotel. It quickly communicated to the Cascade hotel, owned by-  Charles H. Thomas, and then to the  livery stable of J. A. Bertois on the  same side of the street. Then the  flames went across the street and licked up the general store of William  Wolverton and a number of small  buildings to and including the old  Commercial hotel, where it stopped  for lack of fuel.  There is no water supply in the  town, and no possible way of fighting  the fire when it once got started. The  loss is estimated at between $25,000  and $35,000, with no insurance. Mr.  Thomas had the only licensed hotel  in the place, and there is now but one  standing, that of J. A. Bertois, who  was refused a license a few weeks ago.  But one store also, that of Mr.'Ritchie,  is left standing in Cascade.  Nearly six years ago Cascade had a.  fire that wiped out five hotels and destroyed $25,000 in property. A little  later another fire cleaned up a goodly  share of thc buildinr��s left. Consequently, it was difficult to secure insurance at any price. In the boom days  ofC.P.R. railway construction, 1898-  1899, Cascade had 17 licensed hotels  and other businesses in proportion  William Wolverton and Chas, H,  Thomas were the pioneer settlers there,  and had been in Cascade for about  ten years.

Alderman Marshall gave notice of a  street grade bylaw, to establish a new  grade at the corner of Knob Hill  avenue and School streetj! where the  Miners' Union is now ready to build  the new hall, and a committee was ap  pointed to meet the Great Northern  engineer and agree with him on the  grade, the clerk to notify that official.  The clerk was ordered to notify the  manager of the light and water company that hydrants were out of order,  and that if a fire should occur while  they were in that state, and losses take  place on that account, the council  would recommend a suit for damages.  The council fixed the tax rate for  1905 as follows : General, 15 mills;  school, 2 mills; special, 5 mills; total,  22 mills. Municipal Rate Bylaw No.  54, to confirm this rate, was introduced and read the first time.  The city of Greenwood has a force  of forty men at work on the new water  works system.  Grand Forks aldermen are still  wrestling with the liquor license problem, it being the intention to cut out  the saloon licenses altogether, if possible.  Owing to the non-arrival of the new  Be  vehicles ordered, J. F. Royer did not  start his branchstage line, to run from  Curlew  to "Midway,/"this--week, as expected.  ,/  The haul of the thieves who robbed  the Kettle Valley Lines safe at Grand  Forks recently, turns out to amount to  $600, besides a lot of valuable papers.  No clue to the robbers is reported.  Jamer H. Kennedy, chief engineer  of the V., V. & E., who recently recently returned from Ottawa, was in  the city early this week, on his way to  the Similkameen, He has rented a  house at Midway and moved his family  to that point, which will be his headquarters for a year or two, probably,  during donstruction westward.  Residents of Midways are" feeling  pretty good over the assurance that '  railway construction of the V., V. & E.  is to commence there shortly. In addition to this, there are not a few who  think that the Midway & Vernon  railway will also be built, and that the.  C. P. R. will start work suddenly west  from Midway one of these fine days.  The construction gang of the B. C.  Telephone Co., which is rebuilding the  line from Cascade to Greenwood, will  arrive at Grand Forks tonight and be  in Phoenix by the end of this month.  There are about 20 men in the force,  under District Manager Hodge and  Foreman Irwin. About 14 miles of  new line have so far been constructed.  A special meeting of the license  commissioners for the Boundary Creek  license district has been called for  Monday, July 24th, to pass upon applications for new licenses by L. A.  Manly for the Hotel Swanson at Midway, and by Martin Dufour for the  Stockholm hotel at Meyers Creek. The  meeting will be held at the government office at Grand Forks.  A rather bad fire occured at Grand  Forks last Saturday night, occasioning  a loss of about $12,000. It broke  out in the second story of P. Burns &  Co.'s building, corner of Bridge and  F'irst streets, and after a hard fight was  extinguished by the local brigade. W.  K. C. Manly, hardware merchant,  lost from $8,000 to $10,000, covered  by insurance. R. Moorehead's grocery store and W. C. Chalmers' fruit  store also suffered some loss.  License Commissioners Meet.  The meeting of the city License  commissioners was held last Wednesday, but adjourned till the 5th of  August, as some of the applications  and transfers had not been advertised  the required length of time. Holders  of old retail liquor licenses for hotels  will merely pay over the sum of $150  to the cityclerk today the fee for the  ensuing six months. All trades  licenses are also due today to the city  clerk.  This week the work of laying the  pipe line from Loon lake to Eholt was  finished by the C.P.R., and connection made with the. 50,000 gallon  tank at that place. The pipe is four  inches in diameter, and the C. P. R.  will no longer be troubled by a shortage of water for locomotives, as in the  past. The pipe line is about a mile  and a half long. Last winter the C.P.  R. was forced to haul water on tank  cars from Greenwood, Midway and  Phoenix, on account of the water  shortage at Eholt.  A set of Chalmers' encyclopedia has  been donated for raffling for the benefit of the hospital, the raffle to take  place at the hospital benefit which will  be given next Wednesday at Miners'  Union hall. Tickets- are 25 cents  each, and the set can be seen at the  bowling alley?.

This was cer  thinly'good business for the enterprising Spokane daily, but those who bg.;-  tled for their favorite.nominees'collec  tively paid the piper pretty well.

Well up in the list of promising high  grade mines of the Boundary may be  placed the Crescent in Skylark camp���  and its history is no less interesting  than the mine itself is promising. Located eight or ten years ago, the  Crescent, which is situated about two  miles below Phoenix, near the Gnat  Northern Railway track, was not developed to any extent up to the time that  H. H. Shallenberger formed the  Greenwood Crescent Mining Co.  among Spokane men. This was about  1899, and with Charles Sweeney, the  Spokane millionaire mining operator,  as one of the moving spirits,' it was  thought that there would be little  trouble in raising funds .for developing the property into a paying mine���  for the ore was shown to be there in  goodly quantity and quality, running  in values from $100 to nearly $1,000  per ton.  After spending some money on the  properly, for some reason or other, the  Spokane men became tired, and took  little interest. Then the property  stood idle for several years, except for  the occasional work done by Mr.  Shallenberger, who has never ceased  to have faith in the Crescent. About  two months ago Mr. Shallenberger secured an option on all the outstanding  shares of the company, and disposed  of an undivided half interest in  the Crescent to Col. C. L. Dickason,  of Chicago, a gentleman who is independently wealthy, and who came into the Boundaiy at that time to ste  some of the good things for himself.  Under the arrangements made Col.  Dickason provides the necessaiy  funds for development, and so far the  results have been tr.ojt encouraging  both to him and to Mr Shallenberger.  When the Pioneer man visited the  mine a few days ago, he found that  Mr. Shallenberger.who is the manager,  had about 30 men altogether on the  payroll, and the vicinity of the mine  had the appearance of a miniature  tented city. It has good water and  plenty of timber and commodious  bunk houses will soon be erected.  The main shaft of the property had  been sunk a distance of 55 feet, was  well timbered, and was still being  sunk with three shifts. Crosscutting  had also been done and the amount of  ore shown up for this small amount of  work was remarkable. The vein averages a foot in width and is well defined. In the course of development  alone about five cars of ore have been  taken out and are expected to yield  upwards from $100 per ton, largely  silver. The old workings also have  good ore in them, and work is being  done on a large iron dyke that is ex-  pected,.to run well with depth.  A force of men was at work on the  branch wagon road, connecting with  the Phoenix-Greenwood wagon road,  the new road being about completed,  and having a length of 6,000 feet. A  road will also be built to the Great  Northern tracks, about a quarter of  a mile distant. These roads will give  the mine good shipping facilities. The  several cars of ore now in the ore  house will be sent to the smelter  shortly, and there seems no doubt  whatever that this output will give encouraging values, for as one man put  it "the ore looks almost good enough  to eat." Col. Dickason is txpecrted in  the Boundary again, next week.  Mr. Shallenberger is also working a  small force on the Don Pedro, adjoining, which is owned by the Chicago  British Columbia Mining Co., and  from the results being obtained there,  it is surprising that the company does  not prosecute work more vigorously.  To the layman, at least, there is every  appearance of there being something  remarkably good in this part of Skylark camp, and no one will begrudge  Mr. Shallenberger what he seems destined to realize from his extensive  holdings, as a reward for staying with  the camp for so many years, when  most of those who should have done  the same, had lost interest.

Therefore it  is almost a national curse, and it is of  national import that the people should  know of Peruna.  Catarrh is an American disease.  Peruna is an American remedy.  Catarrh is a result of changeable  climate. Peruna is a result of long and  careful experimentation.  Catarrh enters the system through the  nerve centers and affects the mucous  membranes. Peruna enables the nerve  centers to repel and expel the catarrh  from the system.  Catarrh is a systemic disease and  curable only by systemic treatment.  The remedy that cures catarrh must  aim directly at the depressed nerve  centers. This is what Peruna does.  Redeemer of Public Moneys.  Bon. John C. Leftwich, Redeemer of  Public Moneys, whose office is in the  Postoffice Building, in a letter written  from Montgomery, Ala., says:  "I  take pleasure  in recommending  J used it as a good catarrh cure."���John  C.Leftwich. 1  Register United States Land Office.

But hearing of Peruna as a  good remedy I gave it a fair trial and  began to improve, its effects were distinctly beneficial, removing the annoying symptoms, and it was particularly  good as a tonic."���Robert Barber.

PEET HAD  SPECIAL ENGINE  The Granby Co., recently sent the  Laborers' Cooperative Gold, Silver and  Copper Mining Company, Limited  Liability, Non-Personal Liability, of  Golden, a check for $770.44, being she  returns from a small shipment of matte  received from the company's smelter at  Golden. The officers of the company  with the lengthy name were so tickled  to get so much money all at once from  their own mines and smelter, that they  had a photo-engraving made of the  check and printed o^ th,e first; page of  th,e Golden Star-.  And Attended Providence Directors' Meeting.  It would seem that the directors ^of  the Providence mine, near Greenwood,  believe in having all kinds of fun while  they are attempting to straighten out  their legal troubles, in the struggle for  the control of this rich property.  Next Monday the cases will come  up for hearing in court at Nelson, and  it is hoped that matters will be definitely settled at that time. Last week  the Chicago directors arrived in Greenwood in force and quickly called a  meeting of the board, expecting that  John H. Peet, of Spokane, would he  unable to arrive there in time, and  that they would practically have matters all their own way. But man proposes and some one else disposes.  The meeting was to be held Thursday  evening at five o'clock, and according  to railway schedules Mr. Peet could  not arrive till about six thirty via the  Great Northern to Phoenix.  However, the Greenwood men hired  a locomotive from the C.P. R. at Grand  Forks, that line agreeing to meet the  Great Northern train there on its arrival from Spokane and deliver Mr.  Peet safe and sound in Greenwood at  ten minutes to five. Although handicapped by the Great Northern being  twenty minutes late, the C.P.R. engine dropped Mr. Peet in Greenwood,  after enjoying the fas.est railway ride  of his life, at nine minutes to five, and  he walked into that directors' meeting,  taking some of those present completely by surprise.  It may be imagined that that C.P.R.  engineer did not let any grass grow  under his feet. Although he had to  climb a two per cent grade for 1 6 miles  of the 26, he made the distance in just  39 minutes, establishing a new record  for Boundary trains. The engine was  merely a cloud of dust when it flew by  Eholt, the line having been cleared of  all  traffic for the time being.  While the directors' meeting was in  progress, telegrams were received from  Vancouver, stating that the injunction  cases to be heard that day in Vancouver had been postponed till the 17th  at Nelson, when the several cases in  this connection will come up for heating.  Meanwhile, the mine is working  steadily under Supt. Dermudy, and  some of thc richest are in its history is  being   sent  to the Trail smelter, it be-  Do You Want to Save $25 in Duty?  .  .Then buy the. .  OLIVER  TYPEWRITER  Made in Canada..
