SLIMES-TESTING MILL  READY TO OPERATE  Fifteen - Stamp   Plant   at   the  Jewel Mine  The new fifteen stamp mill, which  has been under course of construction  at Long Lake, in connection with the  Jewel mine, for the past year, is now  completed and will be in operation in  a few days. Its starting up has been  delayed by recent fires damaging the  power line of the Bonnington Falls  company. Repairs, however, are now  about completed,  The mill has been constructed for  the purpose of testing a slimes-treating  process of separating gold from tailings.  The new proces*-, which was invented  by II. Nichols, manager of the Ymir  mine, and is being promoted by the  Slimes Treating company, should  it prove successful, promises to  revolutionize present methods obtaining in the handling of similar ores  The mill has been built large enough  to thoroughly test the commercial and  ptactieal value of the invention, and  on the completion of a successful run  at the Jewel mine steps will be taken  to place the invention in other mineral  belts.  The Jewel mine is one of the oldest  properties in the district, having been  the first in the Boundary to mstal a  steam plant. About ten years ago the  main shaft was sunk arid a large lode  of gold quartz prospected to a depth of  330 feet. There are quantities of  galena, zinc blend, iron pyrites and  occasionally ruby silver, tellurides of  gold and silver and some free gold.  Over 2000 tons of this ore was shipped  to the Granby smelter about eight  years ago, but since that time there has  not been any production, except small  quantities for process-testing purposes.  Some high assays have been obtained  and a record carefully kept of the  values at all points. The average of  the entire mine runs close to $15 per  ton.  "During the past year about a dozen  men have been employed on development work at the Jewel mine, and besides the building of. the stamp mill,  which is over half a mile from the  mine, a tramway has been constructed  which will convey the ores from the  mine to the mill.  SPOKANE EXCURSION  COMING TO PHOENIX  Chamber of Commerce  Party  to Be Here Aug;. 27  Spokane, Wash., July 29.���Arrangements are being completed by ihe excursion and entertainment committee  of the Spokane Cbamner of Commerce,  headed by E. F. Waggoner, to run an  excursion to Nelson and points in  British Columbia and northeastern  Washington, a special train leaving this  city the morning of August. 25. The  party will visit Grand Forks and Phoenix and Curlew and Republic, also  making stops en route. Reemer's  military band of 40 pieces will accom  pany the excursionists.  "We will meet with the Board of  Trade at Nelson ihe evening of August  35," said Mr. Waggoner, "going thence  to (.rand Forks and Phoenix, returning  to Spokane by way of Curlew and Republic. Invitations arc now being- extended our members, and we expect  there will be a large delegation. We  are now arranging for several special  stunts that give promise of being  novelties even to our neighbors in the  north." ' _J   Compressor Plant Burned  The compressor building and plant  of the No. 7 mine of the Consolidated  Mining and Smelting company, in  Central camp, were destroyed by fire  about five o'clock Friday morning,  1 and inst.  The building had only been completed a short time ago and the plant  included a ten-drill compressor and  two motors, besides considerable other  equipment, which is damaged practically beyond repaii.  The origin of the fire is a mystery  though it is believed to have been the  result of tbe building having been  struck by lightning.   >  The fire will entail a serious loss for  besides the destruction of the plant the  company were about to commence  shipments from the property, and these  will now be delayed at least two  months.  GENTS.  FURNISHINGS  FAREWELL TO MR. McCRACKEN  Presented With  Parse  of  Gold by  Pythian*  and Orangemen  Last Tuesday evening, the eve of  his departure for the prairie provinces,  Robert. H. McCracken was made the  recipient of a purse of gold by the  members of the local lodges of Knights  ol Pythias and Orangemen, in both of  which he had been a leading spirit  during his three years' residence in  town.  The presentation was made by A.  Almstrom, who on behalf of the Knights  of Pythias, referred to the great loss  ihe lodge will sustain and the -sincere  regret of its members in the departure  of.Mr. McCracken. Mr. Parks spoke  on behall of the Orange lodge, which  also loses an active and valued member  in Mr. McCracken's leaving.  Following the presentation, which  took place in the Pythian hall,-invited  guests to the number of seventy attended a farewell at-home in Mr. McCracken's honor The first part of  the evening was spent in progressive  whist, in which there was the usual  rivalry for both poles of success. The  leading trophies were won by Miss M.  McKenzie and Charles Wootton, while  Mrs. D. Biner add H. C. Miles captured the consolation prizes. A dainty  luncheon of ice cream and cake was  then served, after which a pleasant  couple of hours were spent in dancing.  General regret is felt in Mr. McCracken's removal from town. During  the past three years he has won for  himself the esteem of those with whom  he came in contact, both in a business  way and socially, and was of the stamp  of young men that, Phoenix can ill  afford to lose. He left Wednesday  morning for Alberta and carries with  him the best wishes of a host of friends.  Route lor Atilolsts  The new road to the No. 7 mine  from Phoenix is now nearing completion and will make a splendid driveway. The old wagon road connecting  this with the Lone Star mine has also  been put in shape, and this will now  afford a navigable route for autoists  from Grand Forks into Phoenix.  James Cburcb Leaves lor Quebec  James Church left Tuesday morning  on a visit to the haunts of his youth in  Quebec. Besides being an all round  athlete and a graduate of the hockey  and baseball teams that made the  Boundary famous, Jim is a thorough  booster and will no doubt spread the  glowing gospel of the last great west  among the "peasoupers." After several years of active life on Granby hill,  he had become regarded as a fixture  in Phoenix, but it is just possible he  may be lured to newer pastures on his  return to this province in which case  he will be much missed among a large  circle of friends here. He was accompanied by Ed. Allen, who will also visit  the scenes of his boyhood days and  tell the tales of the west.  REVISING SURVEYS  OVER HOPE RANGE  Hill  Says  Grades   Must   Be  Further Reduced  A V.V. & E. engineering party in  charge of J. F. Floyd is now at work  in the Hope Mountains revising the  survey. J. J. Hill, chairman of the  board of the Great Northern Railway,  has sent word from St. Paul that the  grades must be still further reduced  before contracts for construction will  be awarded.      ���  The gradients going east from Co-  quahalla summit and from the same  summit west down to Hope, according  to last year's surveys, arc one per cent  and two and a half per cent respectively.  From Princeton to Hope the distance  by tbe route already surveyed is 9a  miles. Confidence is expressed that  the revision now in progress will result  in securing marked improvement in  the grades in both directions, especially  on the top up-hill haul from Hope  going eastward.  It is learned that the grading of the  eighteen mile section between Princtoo  and Tulameen River, representing the  approach to the Hope mountains, will  be completed in October. The big  bore will be finished within a few  months.  A. H. Hoagland, chief engineer of  the Great Northern and J. II. Kennedy, chief engineer of the V.-V. &  E. railway, last week drove over the  route between Hope and Abbotsford.  Construction work is now in progress  along a stretch of thirteen miles from  Abbotsford and Sumas River. There  are six construction camps with a force  of 350 men. In addition to ordinary  equipment the contractors are using  three steam shovels and six drinkies.  Tenders for bridge construction were  closed last week.  The located lines of the V.V. & E.  railway and the Canadian Northern  from Sumas to Hope, a distance of 36  miles, are on the same right-of-way.  In some instances for miles, theyjare  less than fifteen feet apari.  THE 1909 MINERAL  PRODUCTION OF B.C.  Phoenix Mines Ship Over 50  p.c. of Ore Tonnage  Speaking at the annual meeting of  the Victoria Board of Trade lately,  Hon. Richard McBride, premier, who  is also minister of mines, stated that  the total value of the mineral production of British Columbia for the year  1909 was $24,443,025. This is the  first public announcement made of the  official figures of production for last  year. As the total for 1908 was $23,-  851,277, the incroase in 1909 was  $59''748.  The tonnage of ore mined in the  province in 1909 was 2,057,713 tons,  a decrease of 25,893 tons as compared  with that for 1908. Over 7.5 percent  of this tonnage was shipped from mines  of the Boundary district, while the  mines of Phoenix camp contributed  over 50 per cent of the tonnage. -  Porc��f Plrei la Kootenay Olatrlcl  The forest fires in the Kootenay  district are now under control, and  little more danger is anticipated.  Sandon has been saved, this being due  more to the change in the wind coming  at the right time, and the rain.  Locally, the fires on the pole line are  still smouldering, but some of the fire  fighters came into town on Saturday  morning, having succeeded in controlling the fires and preventing them  spreading.  New Idea la Valv* Molloni  The most -important feature in a  rock drill is the valve motion, and,  with this in view, H. V.Haight, chief  engineer, Canadian Rand Co. Ltd.,  has been devoting considerable time to  the subject, In the window of the  company here at Rossland their is on  exhibition one of their new style  Slugger rock drills, fitted with an air  actuated spool valve. A .small vertical  auxiliary spool valve is actuated by  rocker from the drill piston, giving the  TRAINS RUNNING IN  EIGHTEEN MONTHS  Kettle Valley Line, Midway to  Merritt  It is phophesied by J. J. Warren,  bead of the Kettle Valley company,  that trains will be running over the  road between Merritt and Midway in  less'than eighteen months. This statement from a railroad builder of such  proved ability and reliability, is of  great importance and will have a tremendous influence upon the immediate  future of this section of the province.  Working forces will soon be started  in the Penticton section, and the full  quota Of men and equipment will be  operating in 1 tic various sections inside  of three  weeks, it   is  stated.���Merritt  News. OVKR   TUB HOPE  Jim Hill, Great Northern railway  builder, must look to his laurels. The  application of the Kettle River Valley  railway company for approval of the  plans of a proposed route from the  Coldwater river in the Similkameen,  at a point where the Midway-Penticton-  Merritt section turns north to follow  the Coldwater river to the Nicola  valley, connection being made at Merritt with the Nicola branch of the  C.P.R. from Spence's bridge is a pretty  plain indication that the hew southern  interior railroad proposes to cross the  Hope mountains, run down the Coq-  uahalla to the Fraser river and join the  main line of the C.P R. at Hope, or  as the loute map shows, Ruby Creek.  This proposed location of a route revives the hope that the Kettle River  Valley railway will include in its plans  a direct connection from the interior  Boundary country to. the" coast, the  necessary link in a second transcontinental by way of the Crows Nest Pass  line to the Pacific tidewater. What  gives a color of possibility to the project is the increased traffic on the Canadian Pacific railway's mountain section. The Crows Nest section, giving  connection with the coast by the Kettle  River Valley line and especially by the  Pumping Station Deilroyed by Fire  The pumping station near the Great  Northern bridge in Grand Forks, operated to irrigate the Traunweisei and  Campbell orchards, was destroyed by]  fire on the night of the 22nd inst.

The  property is located in Central camp,  south of Phoenix and close to the international boundary line. It is over  fifteen years since Ibis property was in  active operation, when approximately  7000 tons of good ore was teamed  from the City of Paris to the Granby  smelter, but the ore shoot becoming  exhausted, operations were suspended  and has since remained closed.  Dealb of George Starke  The funeral of George H. Slarks in  Grand Forks, whose death was announced in the last issue of the Pioneer, took place in that city on Sunday  last and was largely attended. Deceased was S6 years of age and a native  of New York state, but had resided in  Grand Forks for ihe past twelve years.  He is survived by an aged wife and  three daughters: Mrs. R. J. Gardner  of Grand Forks, Mrs. Albin Almstrom  of Phoenix, and Mrs. Fred Steers of  Wallace, Idaho.'  Premier First Passenger  Sir Willrid Lauiier, in his present  tour through western Canada had the  pleasure of riding on the first passenger  train into Foit William of the great  transcontinental line in which he takes  so deep an interest. When the Premier goes to Prince Rupert next month  to the most western and northern point  in his tour he will probably be the first  passenger over the westerly hundred  mile section ofthe Grand Trunk Pacific.  IMPORTANT WORK AT  THE NICKEL PLATE  Improvements Being Made by  Hedley Co.  Extensive improvements are now  being made at the reduction works of  the Hedley Gold Mining company,  which is operated in "connection with  the Nickel Plate mine at Hedley-  And the important feature is that ��� the  new work indicates a permanency of  operations at the property which did  not heretofore exist.  Considerable new electtical machinery is being installed, while the John  McDougall Caledonian Iron Works  company is supplying a 600-horsepower  double impulse water wheel, with  special needle nozzle and auxiliary relief. This wheel is to be direct-connected to a 350-kw. generator and is  to supply power both lor the company's  mines and reduction works. The  water system is being constructed on  a most substantial basis and with a  view to having a supply maintained  throughout the season as much as pos  sible, a steam plant being also installed  for the emergency seasons and to make  possible the operation of the plant  continuous throughout the year.  About 150 men are employed on  the properties and the undei ground  development of the Nickel Plate is  being carried forward vigorously, the  results of which are said to be highly  gratifying to the company.  xiliary  nately to the larger end of the.main  piston valve overcoming the constant  pressure on the smaller end, so that  the cut-off" works with lightning rapidity  with each stroke ofthe piston, resulting  in great air economy, a valuable feature where the compressor capacity is  more  northerly line and bring the wheat of  the prairies and southern Alberta to  the Pacific seaports over easier gradients.���Columbian.

Population will be recorded under  the heads of residence and personal  description; citizenship, nationality and  religion;1,' profession, - occupation and  trade, or means of living; wage-earnings  and insurance; education arid language  spoken, and infirmities.  Every person living on 1st June will  will be entered on the schedule of population by, name, as member of a  family, institution or household, together with place of habitation, sex,  relationship to head of the family or  household, and whether single, married,  widowed, divorced or legally separated.  The month of birth, year of birth and  age at last birthday will also be recorded.  Entrance will be made for each  person to show the country or place of J  birth, year of immigration to Canada, J  if born elsewhere, year of naturalization if formerly an alien, and also  racial or tribal origin, nationality and  religion.

This  will  take effect  immediately.    There have  been no conferences  between  competitive producing interests on the matter  ���but the restriction to  be placed  on  copper production will be far-reaching.  Concerted action   would  bring curtailment   under   the  ban   of Federal  government regulations,   and none  of  the officials desire any such antagonism.  A producer.of more than  100,000,-  000 pounds a  year:    "From   now  on  there will be  a  restriction   of copper  output.    This will not result from concerted movement,  but from  the individual   efforts of each  mine   management.    The'effect on metal prices will  probably be immediate."

Sir  Wilfrid Laurler has reached the highest position In Canadian politics, and  won a name that "must live in the annaja of the British Empire." He baa  overridden obstacles that would have daunted a man of less virile genius and  paXrlbiii��b Thiwi.-gh French was his anccBtry and language, and Catholicism  his religion, he'has become iho leader of the destinies of a great English-  speaking nation, the larger part of whose peup.-s are Protestants.  He was born in St. Lin, Quebec, In 1841, of a taeilly of rebels who fought  bravely under Paplneau In the revolt of 1837. Froj. the little country school  where his teacher, a Scotchman, spurred his ambition and powerfully influenced his life, he passed to L'Assomptlon College, and In 1864, after completing his course In law, entered the Bar. When be made his dfebut in politics  In 1871 as a member of the Quebec Assembly, his magic eloquence, the fearlessness, strength and finality of his words, and tbe mastery by which he  brought order out of chaos, light out of dartuess, thrilled his audience.  Three years later he resigned from the Legislature and was returned to  the House of Commons on the overthrow of the Macdonald government. In  1876 he became zninlsiar of inland revenue, and two years later changes In  politics deprived him of thfcj posUiop. He was. the acknowledged leader of  the Liberals who were the Opposition party until 1896, when after eighteen  years of waiting, the reins of government again came into their hands and  in the first flush ot triumph, they made him Premier.  His statesmanship fcy.s been broad, liberal, far-sighted; his patriotism  and his love of liberty are mani/tot ira every act and word. He loves and  cherishes the British Empire, and glories in the part that Canada takes in  it; but as a. Power of great possibility, sharing with the United States the  golden future of the American continent, he demands of England and the  world the recognition of Canada, not as a babe in the swaddling clothes of a  colony, but as a full grown nation of virility and assured triumph.  Tall, erect, with a handsome presence, cisan-shaven face, clear, penetrating blue eyes, a firm mouth, broad shoulders, a brow masterful and dignified,  a voice soft, sonorous and ever with the suggestion of unexpended reserve,  a smile gentle antf soothing as a benediction, with a courtesy and kindness  thai surround him as an aura���this Is Sir Wilfrid Laurler, Canada's greatest  orator aud stutesinan.  __..u>r��.l ..-.���..nllM.-...

NEW LIQUOR ACT  ';������    IN FORCE AUG. 1  The new liquor act which comes  into effect at the beginning of- next  month, makes several changes in the  regulations and clearly defines several  questions which have heretofore been  , in doubt.  Touching upon Sunday-closing the  new act states that all places where  liquor is sold shall be "absolutely  closed and securely locked" from 10  o'clock Saturday night until 5 o'clock  Monday morning, during which time  no person whosoever shall enter such  places, and all window blinds shall be  kept open so that a full view, of the  bar may be obtained from   the street.  One of the chief points defined in  the act which comes into force is in  regard to those who are the exceptions  to whom liquor may be sold during  prohibited hours. Liquor may be  sold on the prescription of a "duly  qualified medical practitioner; at bona  fide meals in the dining-room only,  and to bona fide commercial travelers  who arrive at a hotel from a distance  during closed hours. An excursionist  is not a bona fide traveler, according  to the act, and legally cannot be served  with* any intoxicating beverage.  Power is given by the act for any  municipality to enforce the Sunday  Observance Act, and all municipal  councils have concurrent pnwer to d^al  i with cases under the Municipal Clauses  Act, and to provide and enforce the  restrictions. Every bylaw already in  effect is valid and effectual and will  not be superseded by this act.

CUP REMAINS  AT THE COAST  New Westminster, July 23���Merely  a picture of ihe Mmto cup will Manager  Findlay and his defeated and disheartened   Montreal   lacrosse   team    carry  with them when  they   leave  for   their  old home town.     But with that photographic copy of the   coveted   emblem  which they sought to lift,   goes   a   bag  of gold to cheer them   on   their   way.  Nine is the sum   total  of their  efforts  in the games today and a week   ago to  take   the  Minto  silverware,   while  23 I  goals is the proud  record   of  the   fast  victorious Royals.    The score  was   10  to 4 last week and the  champions   en  couraged by that lead  of six  made   it  13 to 5 in the game today.  It was a slow and disappointing contest for the New Westminster boys so  outclassed the challengers that the lat  ter were at times made mere infants in  the game.  It was devoid of any remarkable  features. The attendance of 7000  made the total for the two games over  18,000, wherein lies the little bag of  gold for the visitors. The teams were  the same in all positions as last Saturday.  Conditions were even better for fast  lacrosse than last week.. Friday night's  rain had laid the dust and made the  turf firmer, while clouds tempered the  hct sun.    The   Montreal   fielders   did  not seem to have any speed at all and  the Salmonbellies ran rings around  them.

Within a period of two years  this property, practically without a  dollar of capital, has yielded net earnings of $130,000, and is now clearing  over and above all expenses of operation approximately $15,000 a month.  Great as these earnings are, considering the age and condition of the mine,  they undoubtedly will be largely exceeded in the future, as the second  pay shoot, from which production  has  Westminster.  President Findlay said he felt called  upon to express the most sincere admiration for the play of the Westminster home. "It's the finest I ever saw  and I must take off my hat to them,"  was his remark.  pions stopped the ball they lost it right I just begun, averages above $50   a   ton  away in a hurry and the   play   was all I instead of $20, as in the  case of the  Phoenix Railway Timetable.

EDWARD5  OLD  IRONSIDES  AVENUE  Many dope fiends contracted  the drug habit in the cradle  Certain dangerous drugs were given to them in  their baby days in the form of "Soothing Syrups,"  "colic cures" and "infanto' friends." The harmful  effect of "soothers" containing opium, morphine,  chloroform, chloral, etc., cannot be too strongly  stated. Do not give baby a "soother" unless  you positively must.

Yes, the Merchant Who  Advertises Can Afford  to Sell It For Cess S  No matter what the article is, unless it should be something whose selling price is as fixed as that of a postage  stamp, the merchant who is an enterprise advertiser is sure  to sell it for less than the merchant who does not advertise.  For, in spite of his advantages in buying���buying in large |fi  quantities, for cash or short credit, taking instant advan- jjj  tage of buying OPPORTUNITIES���his selling advantage  is the decisive factor. For he is enabled to count his profits  on a large aggregate of sales���not compelled to secure them  from a few sales, for he would then be taxing a small  number of customers with the entire support of his business.  A store that makes a net profit of $100 in a day from  sales to three hundred customers, is sure to sell to each of  those customers on a closer margin of profit than is the  non-advertising store that is COMPELLED to make  enough to cover a daily expense of $50 out of sales made to  fifty customers.  If you are one of the 300 daily customers of. the merchant who advertises, you are paying but one three hundredth part of his store profits on the days you buy. If  you are one of the fifty daily customers of the non-advertising merchant, you are paying one-fiftieth of his profits.  If you are fairly "good at figures," you will quickly  convince yourself that You Ought to Buy Advertised Things.  vJYyo&f  SOOTHING SYRUP  and rest contented.
