This week the Granby Consolidated  closed negotiations with the owners by  which the big mining company of the  Boundary will secure title to another  promising mineral claim in this camp,  known as the Bank of England. The  purchase price of the Bank of England  is not made public, but is understood  to be in the neighborhood of $12,000,  the deal being on a cash basis, the  money now being in the bank awaiting  veteran customs inspector, was check-  the bill of sale or deed.  ing up the local office on Monday and  Tuesday.

Richard C. Morgan, superintendent  of the Spokane Falls and Northern,  was here this week. He expects to  see the rails going down on the extension west of Midway by or a little after  the middle of June.  R. A. Elkins, a brother of G. L.  Elkins, after spending a week visiting  in Phoenix, left Thursday lor Lebanon,  Oregon, and will then go to assume a  position in the military department of  the Panama canal work.  Henry S. Turner and wife arrived  from San Francisco on Wednesday,  where he was in business at the time  of the great earthquake and fire. Mr  Turner has accepted a position on the  staff of the Pioneer and is glad to get  away from the land ofthe tremblers.  Roland Machin, of Victoria, the  genial and much traveled general Canadian agent for Bennett's fuse and  Caminell's steel, two high grade Fng-  ish products, was here this week on  his annual tour of the province. Since  his visit of a year ago, Mr. Machin has  made a long trip through the mining  districts of old Mexico, placing his  well known goods.  The Bank of England was owned  by J. J. Caulfield, Walter Foster, E.T.  Wickwire, A.W. Wilson, Robert Wood  and Christopher Wood, nearly all of  Greenwood, and XV. M. Law, of Midway, and W. S. Macy, of Phoenix. It  is not a full sized claim, being 29.57  acres in extent. It has always been  regarded as a good property, however,  having excellent surface showings, and  having had some little development  done on it. The claim adjoins- the  Monarch claim of the Granby group,  the Monarch being one of the additional claims acquired by the Granby  Consolidated last fall, costing with four  other claims in that group $180,000.  Development work has been steadily  prosecuted on the Monarch for months  in an open quarry and by shaft and  drifting, and an immense body of ore  common to this camp has been opened up there, from which a large tonnage can be had to augment the present large Granby output, whenever it  may be desired or needed.  The Bank of England also adjoins  the Tamarack, owned by the Granby  Co., and the Rawhide, which latter is  being actively developed by the Dominion Copper.Co. By the acquirement of the Bank of England the  Granby Consolidated is able to get at  the Monarch in good shape by tunnels  from a considerable depth.  The area of the several Granby  claims is as follows :  OLD CLAIMS.  Acres.

A steady demand for good miners  still prevails nearly all over the Boundary.  The Butcher Boy, up the West  Fork, is again making a small shipment. .  Development has been resumed at  the Bay mine, the boiler having been  repaired.  Fred Whitwell has discontinued  work on the Maori group in Providence  camp, for the time being.  Four men are employed at the Sally  up the West Fork, which mine sent  out a carload of ore this week.  That open quarry at the Stemwind  er mine is productive of much of the  blasting music heard in Phoenix camp  nowadays.  On the Brooklyn, Stemwinder  Idaho mines in this camp the  minion Copper Co. now has over  men employed.  With the first five months of  year accounted for, Boundary's ore  tonnage runs considerably over the  half million mark.  It is understood that $100,000 will  be spent in development on the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Mother Lode mine in  the next few  months.  MET DEATH AT  SUNSET MINE  SAILED DOWN  KETTLE RIVER  A.   G.

Phoenix is to have a celebration on  the 2d and 3d of July, and a purse ol"  $500 has been put up for a hose team  and $200 for the winner of the base  ball tournament, says the Rossland  Miner. Rossland should he able to  end teams for both these events, and  to bring home cue, and perhaps two,  of the prizes. Rossland in the old  days used to send hose teams that  brought home the money, and as for  the baseball team, it has not yet been  defeated this season.  CLAIMS ISOUGHT LAST YEAR.

Tuesday evening a meeting of the  Dominion day celebration committee  was held at the city hall, and it was  decided to meet the request of the  band to appropriate the sum of$ic,��  for music for the two days ofthe cele  bralion. Secretary McEacheran staled  that about $125 would be required  for printing and advertising, and the  several committees reported the requirements of each branch of sports  for prizes. The meeting was adjourned till next monday evening, at  the same time and place, when de  cisions will be made, large posters  ordered, and all matters put in shape  for completing details for the celebration. A full attendance is requested  at Monday's meeting.  Train Robbcrt Not Convicted.  Col-  the  The trial of Miner, Dunn and  quhoun al Kamloops, for robbin;  C P. R. overkind passenger train a  few weeks ago, took place this week.  Much legal talent was in evidence on  both sides, but at 12.45 Thursday  morning the jury returned to the  court room, reporting that they could  not agree, a-id were discharged. A  new trial was begun the same day.  For a long time the jury stood seven  for conviction and five for acquittal.  The case occupied three full days.  It is anticipated that when the new-  reduction plant is in running order at  the Carmi, about eighty per cent, of  values will be saved.  fames Sutherland has resumed work  on the Canadian in Skylirk camp, on  which something like $5,090 has been  spent heretofore. It is expected to  join the shipwing list.  Work is si ill under way in the adjustment of the automatic ore bin  feeder, recently received for use in  the Granby mines for the Great  Northern terminal ore bunkers.  Last week's B. C. Gazette contains  notice of the incorporation of the  Boundary Mining and Exploration Co.,  Ltd., with a capital of $200,000,  divided into shares of one dollar each.  At the Mountain Rose the Dominion Copper Co. is running a tunnel,  from which a raise will connect with'  the shaft already sunk. Foreman  Fraser has charge with six or eight  men.  Reports from Franklin camp are  that the diamond drill being operated  there under contract by the Spokane  Diamond Drill Contracting Co., is  steadily at work on the McKinley  group.  Custom ore is being received at the  Granby smelter regularly from the  Jumbo mine, Rossland, the First  Thought mine. Orient, Wash., and  from the Snowstorm mine, Larson,  Idaho.  Next week Saturday will be the  monthly pay day in this camp, when  the total amount distributed should  be equal to if not in excess of that for  the previous month, when about  $65,000 was paid out.  It is given out that the Dominion  Copper Co. has taken an option or  bond on the Newby group of four  claims in Gloucester camp, up tbe  North Fork. Work is to start in a  short time, and while the figure of the  bond is not named, the time runs for  1 S months.  Supt. Thomas of the Dominion  Copper Co.'s smelter, is smiling this  week, over the arrival of the machinery for the company's new smelter  machine shop. It arrived only about  four months overdue. The work of  erecting will proceed with the least  possible delay.  This week's tonnage from the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Mother Lode mine, as  well as die amount treated at tbe  smelter, is somewhat smaller than  usual, owing to the preparations for  blowing out the reduction works in  two or three days, to permit of extensive enlargements.  For the month of May the tonnage  of the Granby Consolidated will again  be a trifle smaller than usual, owing to  a continuation of the various changes  and improvements being inaugurated.  In a short time, however, these are expected to be practically completed,  and the output will be crowding the  80,000 ton mark, making some  2,200,000 pounds of copper each 50  days.  The report has been current this  week, and is said to have some foundation, that an option has been given  on the H. C. mine 111 Summit camp,  which is owned by the li. C. Chartered  Co., Ltd. This property in the past  has shipped about 100,000 tons ot  some of the best copper ore ever taken  out of a Boundary mine, but after  taking it out the Montreal capitalists  owning the properly did not care to  spend any money in developing the  mine, or in looking for more ore A  spur of the ('. P. R. runs to the B.C!.,  which has a full equipment of machinery, etc.  Abont 9 o'clock Sunday morning  Alphonso G. Inglis, at the Dominion  Copper Co.'s Sunset mine in Dead-  wood camp, met instant death from an  explosion. It appears that a hole had  been loaded in the quarry and fired  off. On going back the men discovered that the entire charge of giant powder had not exploded, and another  charge was put in and fired. On re  turning a second time Inglis was bending directly over the hole, when a third  explosion occurred, killing him instantly. The second charge evidently  did hot ignite the original charge left  in the hole from the first explosion, till  just as the unfortunate man got to the  place.  Inglis was a single man of 24 years  of age, and had been employed also  in several high grade mines around  Greenwood, and had two brothers, F.  and S. Inglis, here. He was a native  of Antigonish, Cape Breton, Nova  Scotia. Funeral services were held  Wednesday at the Presbyterian church  in Greenwood, under the auspices of  the Greenwood Knights of Pythias, a  large number of members of the  Miners' Union also attending, in both  of which deceased was a member, and  the remains were taken east to his old  home that day by the brothers. The  young man was universally liked and  last summer had his mother here from  Nova Scotia to visit him. He was  engaged to be married in the fall to a  Greenwood young lady.  The coroner's jury, impanelled to  inquire into the cause of the fatality,  returned a verdict of accidental death.  Phoenicians    Are   Successful  Fishermen.  L. Y.   Birnie,  Ed.   R.   Birnie  and  Capt. George Smith returned Wednesday from a several days' fishing trip up  the West Fork ol Kettle river.     They  went up to Bull lake, a few miles back  in the mountains, and had good luck,  bringing back some 75  to   100 lbs. of  rainbow trout.    The new Acme canvas  boat,   recently   purchased    in   Ohio,  which can be knocked  down and set  up in a few minutes,  was taken along  and found to be just the thing and all  that was claimed for it.   When launched it was christened the Mad Woman,  but belied its name.      Capt. Smith, as  usual, showed his old sea dog qualities.  On the return trip two  of the party  sailed down the Kettle river  some  ao  miles   to   Midway,   making   about   as  good time as   the   third man with the  horses.     On Sunday A. B. Hood and  George  McNichol   went   up   to   the  camp, taking a fast team, and  also enjoyed the  excellent   fishing.    On the  return a number of friends and acquaintances    were   able   to   testify   to the  quality of the   fish.     Doubtless other  parties will try the fishing in that neighborhood in the near future.  POWER WORK AT  BOUNDARY  FALLS  Celebration Committee Meeting.  Tuesday evening a meeting oi the  Dominion day celebration committee  was held at the city hall, and it was  decided to meet the request of the  band to approwriate the sum of $150  for music for the two days of the celebration. Secretary McEachern stated  that about $1.25 would be required for  printing and advertising, nnd the several committees reported on the reported on the requirements of each  branch of sports for prizes. The meeting was adjourned till next Monday  evening, at the same time and place,  when decisions will be made, large  posters ordered, and all matters put in  shape for completing details for the  celebration. A full attendance is requested at Monday's meeting.  To Light Greenwood and Also  Midway.  A. M. Whiteside, solicitor, and E.  G. Warren, of Greenwood, have recently been to Victoria to arrange for  the acquisition and transfer of the  charter held by the Greenwood Water  Works Company, Limited, owning the  water power at Boundary Falls, to the  Greenwood Electric Company,Limited.  The electric company is proceeding  with the installation of a water power  plant at Boundary Falls, for the purposes of supplying power for electric  lighting and commercial purposes, to  the city of Greenwood and the town  of Midway. Boundary Falls, on the  creek of the same name, is situated  about midway between these two prosperous and growing towns.  These falls, when harnessed, will develop 150 !.-.-3C--pc-ver at lo>? water,  which extends for a period of about  two months. A minimum of 300  horse-power is obtainable for the balance, of the year. Owing to the fact  that 150 horse-power, the minimum  output of the falls, will not supply the  growing needs of both places, it is  proposed to install a suitable plant,  using a reserve steam unit and a storage dam of 1,000,000 cubic feet to  carry over the peak of the load. As  the load factor of the system will not  exceed 50 per cent, of the total contracted load, it is not expected that  steam will be needed except in cases  of emergency.  Latest Prices in Metals.

There is plenty of room for a few  more captains of industry to operate  in the Boundary, and if signs do not  fail they will be doing business here in  the not distant future.

"We suppose some newspapers  would be glad to have a working mine  so handy, but occasionally it becomes  a trifle strenuous under such circumstances.       "  Hon. Mr. Fielding stated last week  in the House at Ottawa that the surplus for this year was $12,500,000.  And he might have added with considerable truth that this surplus was  partly made up by the extra penurious  policy of the postoffice department,  which is being conducted solely with a  view to profit, rather than for the benefit of the people at large.  dred dollar town���and   the   Times is  right.

There is more  sense,  more   money  and   more ' meal  tickets in publishing a first-class weekly in a small town than  in getting out  a one-legged,   dinkey  daily sheet, that  is foreordained to he a failure.

This will be-done to get out of the  cold canyon at present occupied, and  will provide more healthful quarters for  the men.  A line for an aerial tram from the  Great Northern railway to the mine is  being surveyed at present, and it is  thought that by fall the mine will be in  shape, both in regard to machinery  and ore transportation, to supply all  the flux necessary for the enlarged  smelter works.

You may think  the flour you are using is about as  white as flour can be. Yet if you  place it beside Royal Household  Flour it wili look yellow by comparison.

South Vancouver's tax rate for 1906  is 16 mills.  Armstrong and Moyie will celebrate  Dominion Day.  Vancouver is to have a sky scraper,  a twelve story hotel.  Cranbrook has borrowed $20,000  for municipal improvements.  Grand Trunk Pacific engineers are  laying out the Prince Rupert townsite.  Ten carloads of steel rails have arrived a Golden for the Kootenay Central.  Vancouver clerks have succeeded in  securing the much-agitated Wednesday  half holiday.  Capt. Mikkelson left Victoria last  Saturday in search of the North Pole  and a new continent.  Nelson's new morning paper, the  Canadian, was scheduled to appear yesterday for the first time.  The provincial government has given  a grant of $500 to the Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Society in aid of  the fair of 1906.  The minister of customs, through  Duncan Ross, M.P., has refused to  establish subports at either Enderby,  Armstrong or Kelowna.  The people of Nelson are contemplating setting their clocks an hour fast  so as to give them an hour more daylight in the evenings. The idea emanated from the city council and has  been endorsed by the 20,000 club of  the Kootenay city.  Great activity now prevails in northern British Columbia. In the vicinity  of Skeena river the various canneries  are experiencing much difficulty in  securing help, owing to the demand for  men on the Grand Trunk surveys and  other projected works.  More Than Wlllinz.  The following is no! original. It  was clipped from a Sunday school  paper. We do not know where the  loving talk took place: A young lady  received a proposal by telegraph, and  a request to wire at once. Upon be  ing told by the operator that she could  get ten words for twenty-five cents, she  wired : "Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,  yes, yes, yes, yes." Another one was  rung up on the telephone and asked  the question, "Will you marry me?"  With a promptness equal to the occasion, she replied, "Yes; who's speaking,  please ?"  GOOD ADVERTISING FOR THE WEST.  Two Parties of Washington Newspaper  Men  Are Coming  Again this summer a large parly of  llie leading Washington newspaper correspondents will make a tour of Western Canada, the guests of the C. P R  and the Western Canadian Immigration Society. Last year a party was  taken from Montreal to the coast and  back; the result being a flood of newspaper articles on Canada's great West,  which did much to familiarize people  all over the United States with the  fact that there was a wonderfully fertile country to the north of them,  which would make an admirable field  for their surplus farming population  to seek fortunes in. So satisfactory  were the results that the experiment  will again be tried, with the difference  that so charmed were the Washing-  tonians with their trip that two excursions will have to be run this year to  accommodate them.  The party this year includes men  writing for groups of newspapers representing almost every state of the  union, each man being head of a news  bureau. Those who will come on the  first trip are: Messrs. T. \V. Strayer,  Pittsburg Gazette: R. W. Dulahan,  New York Sun: Angus McSween,  Philadelphia North American; S. G.  Blythe, New York World; G. H. Mc-  Adani, St. Louis Republican; Jos. L.  Carmichael, Detroit Free Press; Ric.  Lindsay, Kansas City Star and Times;  Ira E. Bennett, Washington Post; E.  E. Lowery, New York Evening Post;  XV. S.

Newspaper Does lis   Part   in   Ihe Attraction  of Bolh.  A writer in the Victoria Week recently had the following about the support of a local newspaper and what  such a publication can accomplish. It  should be read by every business man,  without exception :  "The need of the Kootenay is capital and labor. How does it expect to  get it without a newspaper, and a good  one ? If the newspaper is poor, the  outside people, who are to be attracted, think the community likewise. The  gentleman in business who deems he  has a lead-pipe cinch on the business  in his line in his district, may be quite  right. But if he helps his newspaper,  he is helping himself far more, for he  is attracting settler after settler, capitalist after capitalist, everyone of which  is certain, if the uncharitable gentleman really has his lead-pipe cinch, to  be his customer and increase his profits. During the past twelve months  in mining alone there has been invested more than $1,000,000. There are  two properties working where there  was one before; there are three ranches  where there was one; there are three  sawmills where there were two; there  are seven people where there were six.  And this is due to what? All these  potentialities were here before, but  neither capital nor labor came in. Conditions ate better, but it is the press  that let the world know that those conditions were better."  Josephine Lnpion, Hotel Dieti, Mon-  ireal, Can., writes:  '���/���'our months ago 1 commenced to  take y our Peruna.

One such case as that of Josephine  Ltmieu ought to be all the evidence any  one needs to bo convinced of the pribd-  lcss benefit of Peruna.  This lady was changed from an invalid  into a busy housewife. She asserts that  through Peruna she is able to do four  times as much work as before, that abe  doea not take colds any more, and that  the rheumatic pains and constipation  which had troubled her have rtto-  appeared.

Word was received by the Buckless  family this week that Frank Buckless'  mother, living at Chateaugay, New  York, was near death's door, and Mr.  Buckless, who has been spending a  short season at Halcyon Hot springs,  was at once notified.  Duncan McDougall this week started work on a double cottage on his  lots on lower Dominion avenue. Each  will have four rooms, and will be completed in about six weeks. He could  doubtless rent a couple of dozen such  houses if he had them.  Recently the Pioneer stated in re  ferring to the new flag pole erected at  the school house, that it was supplied  by Frank Buckless. This we are informed was an error, as the pole was  furnished by Murdock Mclntyre, proprietor of the Palace livery stable  The Greenwood band is giving a  benefit ball next Monday at Masonic  hall, to purchase new instruments.  This week iumber was being hauled  on wagons from Grand Forks to Franklin City, for the erection of the first  hotel for that new townsite, to be built  by B. Lequime.  A postoffice is expected to be established shortly at Franklin City. The  Dominion Express Co. has already  made arrangements to have goods delivered there over the new stage line  from Grand Forks.  James Hunter, of Hunter  Brothers,  Rossland, and Chas S. Slawson, both  heavily interested in  the Hunter-Kendrick Co.,  Ltd., are  reported to have  purchased some 8,000 acres   of  land  adjoining   the  R. G. Sidley ranch oh  Anarchist mountain, for a price approximating $50,000.      The tract is a few  miles northwest of Molson, Wash., on  the British   Columbia side, and is said  to include one of the   finest  pieces of  timber land  in  this entire section, the  route of the   V.,   V.    &    E.   running  through it, and the C.P.R. survey west  of Midway also traversing the property.  Knew How to Take ihe  Hint.  A subscriber in   Toronto   sent   the  ! Pioneer two plunks this week, and enclosed the following item clipped from  this great family journal recently:  "Subscribers to the Phoenix Pioneer  can renew their subscriptions by sending $2 to this office at any time. Those  already behind, of which there are a  few, will confer a favor by attending  to the matter without delay, as typographical artists must eat, like other  people." <  If there are others���of which each  one should know���in the tame box,  in Toronto or Timbucktoo, we shall  be pleased to hear from them along  the same lines.
