Rawhide pay roll is $18,000. -" ���  Devotee! to the Interests e^the Boundary Mining District  The Phoenix ( Pioneer is'  published in the ln'ghest  municipality in Ganada--  altitude, 4,800 ft. The city  lias a population of 1,500,,  and possesses first-class  hotels, opera house, schools  FIFTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, JULY 19, 19.3  Granby Notes  The initial  consignment of: eight  strongly-constructed steel cars,   for  use   at  the    Granby   Consolidated  company's'   Hidden    Creek    mine,  which have been   turned out at the  company's shops  here  in  Phoenix,  were shipped  north   last week.    A  second  batch    consisting . of eight  . more' were   also despatched yesterday.    The cars,  which {have a capacity of between four and five tons,  are all of the side-dumping pattern,  and will be transhipped  to the company's barges and towed to Anyox.  The  installation of the new machinery, which   in addition ������ to their  already   extensive equipment,   will  place the Granby shops in Phoenix,  to the forefront of anything of that  kind in the west, was  successfully  completed  two    weeks    ago,,,  and  according, to report is affording the  maximum amount of satisfaction to  all concerned.     The new plant consists    of   six   machines;    including  a 21in.   upright drill  press, a 12ft.  "Hew Haven" heavy lathe, a ���<Cin-  cinnatti" milling machine, one "Acme" combination  turret lathe, one  Universal grinding machine  and a  "Higley"     cold     saw    cutting-off  machine.  Successful Dance  The dance on Wednesday, given  for the purpose  of raising funds to  defray the cost of laying  out a suitable ball ground, drew the merriest  throng of dancers that  have assembled in   Phoenix  for months, while  the very,large  attendance furnished  a happy  augury for the success of  the citizens' undertaking. The Ironsides orchestra of five  pieces  furnished  a capital program of music,  and rendered  an estimable service  by substituting a number of the old  favorites for the impossible exercises  that  unfortunately we    have  been  "treated"  to. of fate.    This  departure,   together  with   a  very active  floor  rammtUee;   was   in   a  great  measure   responsible   for   what   all  present voted it, an unqualified success.     The prize to   the   lady  selling the  largest" number of tickets  was  awarded   to   Miss  C.   Delvo,  who.succeeded  in disposing  of 58,  while Miss. L'Heureux was a very  close second  with 51   to her credit.  Up to  the  time of going  to press,  the  dance accounts  had  not  been  compiled, but a conservative estimate ofthe  net receipts will  total in  the neighborhood of $150.   ������  -*pm_��^*H-_n_MMH  B.

City Council Meeting  The  bi-monthly  meeting  of the  Phoenix City council took place on  Wednesday evening in the city hall,  the mayor. D. J. Matheson, presiding.

Mystery Still Unsolved  Frank Firicham, formerly of Phoenix,   the  Rossland  electrician  who  disappeared  about two weeks ago,  is  supposed   now     to    have    been  drowned,sat least that  is the generally   accepted   theory.      Up   to the  present not the slightest   clue to his  whereabouts    has    been    obtained,  and, acting qd the drowning theory,  the Mayor of Rosalind  despatched  a; search   party  on Wednesday with  orders  to   make  a  search  for the  body from a point five  miles above  the    mouth     of   Blueberry   creek,  thence down the   Columbia river to  Northport   on   the   American   side  From   that   point   a  sharp lookout  is being kept  by  the United States  authorities.

Recent developments in connection with the Neill-Tompkin property on Hidden Creek, Yale, B.C.,  are arousing a lot of local interest.  It is asserted that the tunnel is now  eight feet of solid ore, free milling  and high grade. Captain Bellamy,  of Vancouver, with associates in that  city, has taken a bond on the property, and is arranging for the installation of a stamp <mill to treat the  product of the mine on the ground.  Other properties on Hidden Creek,  especially those ( of Foulk and the  McDonald brothers, are looking  well. The Hidden Creek mineral  field is not extensive, but the ore  found so far is very rich. The Si-  wash Creek Mines Ltd., operating  placer ground on the main creek,  has about completed all preparatory  work, and announces that gold  washing will begin shortly.  The Omineca   Gold   Mines, Ltd.,  of  Vancouver,   who   have   sixteen  Jeases on Quartz and Vital creeks in  the Omineca district, and ten  miles  of dredging ground   on   Fall   river,  have decided to undertake development   on    a   large   scale.     R.    D.  Fetherstonhaugh, M.E., Vancouver,  was in town this week outfitting for  a trip to the property.    He is taking  six men in with him   this   season to  continue the prospecting which was  started last year.   -Mr.   Fetherstonhaugh secured the  ground  for  the  company,   and   he  took  out  some  very good samples last fall.    He recently informed a  representative of  the Omineca Herald that the Omineca Gold Mines, Ltd., was preparing  to put in a large plant next season,  and that this  year  he   would  complete the preliminary plans, and have  everything on the grounds ready for  it.     He is enthusiastic over the Omineca  district   and   believes   that  a  great amount of gold will   be takt;n  out of  there  during  the   next few  years.  tions would be commenced.

I worth it  Forest Facts to Ponder Over  Fifty years is a very short time  in the history of a forest.' Most of  the timber being cut in British  Columbia today is over two hundred years old���some of it over  eight hundred years old.  It takes years to grow trees���not  hours or days. ' >  If we want oiir trees protected  we must care for them now. Today is fifty years "ago" from .the  year 1963���and that'is not far away.  There is a crisis coming���when  the forests which for' a century men  have thought "inexhaustible" are  going to be greatly depleted.  We must prepare  for  that  con>  tingency.  Stop the fires. $/  Stop  the waste in logging,  milling and utilization.  Stop   the   insect   and  fungus depredations.  Cut timber only when it is "ripe"  ���when   it  will   produce   as   much  value   as   possible in  usefulness   to  men.      v *���  Plant the waste places.  Plant the needed shelter belts.  These take  time, they take men,  they   take     money,    but   they   are  Concentrates  The measure for the disestablishment of the chnrch in Wales has  passed its final reading.  J. W. Harris, of Summerland,  has been appointed to the principal-  ship of the Merritt public schools  at a salary of $120 per month.  A man named Fournier recently  amused himself by throwing boys  off the wharf at Kaslo. It took  about a quarter of an hour to ret tore  one of them to consciousness.'  Another    thousand    Doukhobors  will arrive  in British  Columbia this  fall.    This will reduce the colony in  Saskatchewan   to  3000,   and bring  the number in B.C. to 5000 people.  Mosquitoes have  now become so  troublesome    along     the     Duncan  river, that   the  trail   building  from  Healy's  landing to  Hall creek has  had   to   be    discontinued   for   the  summer.

As a whole, Germarn foests produce about $2.00 net per acre annually.  Canada spends much less than  one cent per acre per annum on  the forest lands under management.  If we set the fire loss against  the timber product, Canada's forest  balance sheet shows an enormous  deficit.  How can Canadians stop these  losses and arrest the waste? There  is but one answer. Public opinion,  public conscience are the only forces  'that will ever make for progress.-  A Trial Solicited.  Phone SO.   Dominion Ave.  Peter Aiten, who was arrested at  Gibbon, last summer, on a charge  of stealing a quantity of gold from  a Glacier creek claim near Dawson,  Y.T., was sentenced on Saturday  last to six months' imprisonment.  In spite of every eflfqrt to locate,  him, the escaped leprous Chinaman  whose present freedom is giving the  people on the coast considerable  alarm, is still at large. Detectives  of his own race are engaged op the  case.  A young woman, named Jennie  Mitchell, was ' electrocuted a' few-  days ago in ��� Winnipeg. "' 'She was  returning from a visit and evidently  came into contact with a live wire  that had been blown down by a  storm.  ��� John D. Taylor, M.P., for New  Westminster, has been formally  gazetted as commander of the 104th  Regiment  to    succeed   Lieut.-Col.  war. This colossal undertaking  cost $1,200,000, and is illustrated  with nearly 1,000,000 maps and  plans.  The diamond necklace, purchased  by Jack- Johnson, the nigger pugilist, for his first wife, realized the  sum of $2160. The jewelry was  confiscated by the Federal authorities.  The inhuman atrocities committed  by the Bulgarians in ��� the Balkan  war has so stirred the Vancouver  Greek residents that they have subscribed a further sum of money towards their country's Red Cross  service.  "Strong as Gibraltar" has become  a proverb, but apparently "Gib." is  not so strong that  the British government    neglects   any   means   to;  make it stronger.    The   Admiralty  has instructed Major E. Richardson  the   famous    English   breeder  and  trainer 'of dogs, to   send   a number  of these animals to the old fortress,  where   they are  to  be used as sentries.    The  dogs  selected are described as a mixed breed of Airedales.  Over 5000 members of the Orange  association   paraded  in  Vancouver  on   Saturday  for   the   purpose    of  celebrating the 233rd anniversary of  the bailie of the Boyne. . In Belfast,  Ireland, things were not  so peaceful  and   throughout   the  day   the  whole of the garrison were confined  to barracks, while thousands of the  Royal     Irish     constabulary    were  stationed at   strategic  points in the  city and.district in readiness for the  expected   trouble.    During  one   of  the scraps,   the factions   united and  stubbornly attacked the police.  Stefansson, the leader of the  Canadian Arctic expedition, who is  now at Nome, plans to leave that  town to-day for Point Barrow.  Since his arrival at Nome the explorer has been busily employed in  selecting suitable dogs for the proposed sleighing trips. Over 100  dogs are being collected. .

The   showing   of   the  Appalling Mining; Mortality  In order for us to thoroughly appreciate the reasons underlying the  strike  of miners employed   in   the  South African gold mines, the cause  of which   at   first  seemed   trivial,  when it  was   njerely  stated   as the  objection by the miners  to the discharge of five  men whom  the employers offered subsequently to reengage,   it   is   necessary,   says   the  London Daily News, to realize that  the   Rand miners pay a bigger price  for    their    high   wages,    than   any  other class of workers in the world.  The   mining  of gold   in   the  South  African mines produces an appalling  death roll.    The white underground  workers   number   between    10,000  and   12,000,,   and it   is  stated that  there are 4000 new cases of miners'  phthisis among them annually.   The  highest    mortality    is   among   the  machine drillers.    However healthy  the Transvaal miner  may appear on  his    return   to > England,   says    Dr.  Haldane, of the Committee  on Industrial   diseases,  in   1907,   he will  probably be  dead within  a  year or  two.      Miners' phthisis is said to be  due   to   the   inhalation   of  the   fine  dust   which   arises  not   only   from  rock drilling without the accompaniment   of  water  spraying,   but also  from the blasting operations.

Largest Bears in the World'  The  biggest  bears  in   the world  are to be   found   on   Kadiak island,  in the gulf of Alaska, south  of the  great  shoulder    of   territory  that  stretches out into the Pacific.      The  Kadiak bears are of the Polar breed,  perfectly  white,.- with   long   heavy  fur, and at full growth   are twice as  large as the black bear of the Rocky  mountains.     They are known to'attain a weight of between 2000 and  3000 pounds  and reach   the  height  of an  ordinary cow.    They are the  largest  carnivorous  animals   living  and   tracks found in the snow have  often   measured   fifteen    inches    in  length, and   a width   of  ten inches.  The animals are remarkably savage  and fight desperately when attacked.  Bear traps are usually baited with  honey or fish. The Kadiak trappers,  however, use a live pig, whose  squealing attracts them from a  longer distance than the odor of  honey. The Hand of Kadiak is  wooded and mountainous with a  few good harbors.
