JWraifc^:  $rCj.  iggsm^nm  For the last two weeks there has been  a series of meetings between the committees from the miners' unions and  the mine managers, looking to are-  adjustment of the wage scale generally  for all men employed'at the^district  mines. In fact, the meetings-have  been so numerous and there hasJbeen  so much voting, that most men ; were  unable to keep track of the proceedings, unless the entire time was devoted to that one thing.   ,v  However, in brief, the miners 'have  accepted by a large majority and a  referendum vote the latest proposition  of the mine managers, which gives an  advance of 50 cents per day to men  employed underground, with a ten per  cent advance to those employed above  ground. This scale seems to be eminently satisfactory to the .men in this  camp. Of course, many of the men  are absent on vacations, but when the  ballots were counted last Wednesday  night, it was found that 347 weire in  favor of and but 75 men were against  the new scale. Thus, by showing the  give and take spirit, the miners of the  Boundary have received a substantial  increase over the old scale, to compensate them for the increased cOst of  living. " v/  The above vote is the combined result from counting the ballots cast by  the members of both Phoenix Union  No.-3iand Greenwood Union No. 22.  Neatly every mine in camp has been  pultinfron men this week, with-the except'"'.!' of the Snowshoe, which is making some extensive changes to, its electrical equipment, and is not ready yet  for a large force.

It  is understood that whatever scale is  agreed on at the Granby smelter will  also be adopted at the two other  smelting plants in the Boundary.  Latest Prices In Metals.

Last Sunday night the C.P.R. took  out a train of 20 ore-cars from the  Dominion Copper Co.'s^Brooklyn and  Rawhide mines}here,Ythe first this  month. Shipments have been regular  since then, the Idaho also being on  the list.  Two furnaces having been blown in  at the Dominion Copper Co.'s Boundary Falls smelter Thursday morning,  the third and new one���the largest in  Canada���will also be blown in as soon  as the men to operate it can be had  A number of men can get employment  at once at this smelter, Manager  Thomas states.  Citizens of Greenwood state that  the light now being furnished by the  Greenwood City Water Works C��-  from the newly completed hydro-electric plant at Boundary Falls, is far superior to that hitherto availahle from  Cascade. All the high grade mines  around Greenwood that have electric  power are now taking.this, power.  Last Tuesday two furnaces were  blown in at the Granby smelter, and  the next day two more were placed in  commission. Today it is expected  that, another will be blown in, making  five out of the battery of eight blast  furnaces. As fast as the men can be  had and the coke comes^ in, the full  battery will be smelting ore,  Sunday night the British Columbia  Copper Co.'s smelter at Greenwood  was blown out for repairs to the water  supply. The shieve wheel at the big  hoist at the company's "Mother" Lode  mine, had broken, necessitating repairs  there, and advantage was taken of it  to do some repairing at the smelter for  a few days. The furnacesjare expected to be blown in againjt&fay.  . Ft P. Buck,,president; of the Phoenix Amalgamated CopperrMines, Ltd.;  arrived in ,the city, direct from New  York, last Sunday, with Mrs. Buck  andj. Cleveland Haas," M.E.| of Spokane,'who is also-interested in the  proposition.; This company is the consolidation of three. cotnpanies that  owned claims oh the south side of this  camp; adjoining the properties of the  Granby Consolidated; The amalgamation took place not quite'6 year ago,  and since then ��� Mr. Buck-has- been  busy getting matters.in.shape to begin  operations on a considerable scale. ,  The most important claim of the  company was and is the War Eagle,  which is equipped, with machinery, bqt  no, development has been done oh the  group for several years. The high  price of copper, however, has, been no  ��mall stimulant, and it is a certainty  that operations^ will "be-'"started" within  the next 60 days with a good force of  men. The shares of the amalgamated  company are . largely owned , in .the  Eastern Townships of Quebec by  people who" have held their "inteiests  for years, confident in the ultimate out-  corne^of the properties, being in' such  a favorable neighborhood. A number  of Boundary, residents are also interested. Several more claims were( acquired and' added to  the group last  year;  ' ���"'   :'VvJ' "'��� "' "' '"'' ' ?.,  : Knowing the interest felt in the concern locally and .abroad, the Pioneer  asked Mr. Buck for a statement regarding  the plans of the company, and he  said: ;'.. ���'.,-  "You may state that plans are now  complete for the operation of ��� the  properties of the Phoenix Amalgamat-  edj.andjhaxthereis now,#p^iquestiqn  that they will-be in operation'in a few  weeks. All of the capital necessary is  now available, the details having been  definitely arranged, and we will begin  systematic development in 60 days or  less, with the intention of making .the  mines profitableproducers. Carrying out  these plans has been a slow process  with us, owing to"certain" contingencies  that arose, but they are-now in definite and final shape, I am glad to say.  ���'I am starting.right.back, east this  week, and expect to return very shortly,  when a crew of men will be put on,  the first thing probably being some  diamond drilling."  Mr. Buck left Thursday morning  over the Great Northern for Spokane  and the east, expecting to be back in  Phoenix inside of a month. This was  Mr. Buck's third visit here, having  been here twice before when his son,  C. G. Buck, was in charge of the de  velopment then being carried on at  the War Eagle.  KILLED HER SISTER  AT GRAND FORKS  Stt;uck#atal BK)w*lfity ;Si$k  News comes from Grand Forks of  the killing of Bella Donnan by her  sister .Stella- Thursday^srhbrnirig, the  deed being done in a fit of anger. It  appears that the two girls had had a  quarrel .'..oyer the use of the kitchen  ftoverQ^for, washing,5and .the -other,  ���for<;, ironing. During the quarrel the  elder sister, Stella, picked up a stick of  fire wood and struck Bella just behind  the ear, .Bella felWand shortly thereafter expired) to, the.horror of the sister  who had done,the fatal act.  It appears that the two girls are of  a large family, the father having been  emploped at the C. P. R. shops at  Eholt fOr some time, and that the  dead girlLwasnot the brightest of them.  One of them had been a school teacher  for several terms .at,,the public  school  at Ehpit': ": "*''. ���;���'....'."'  Dr. C. M. Kingston, the coroner,  empanelled a jury and held an inquest  Thursday, the jury returning a verdict  that deceased came to her death unintentionally at the hands of her sister.  N.Y. CAPITAL  INWESTFORK  Taking    Over    Gold  Drop Group.  PHOENIX ^oViWiyiNQ Q00D HKlC  Woa Otce ��t ureenwood aid Tied Aoelher  ������:.; ��� ��� .Hard; Foachi Qame.r.  ; There were some surprises at the  base ball tournament held on the 24th  and 25th of May,;at Greenwood, and  the Phoenix fans came back with one  scalp at their belt, together $150 in  prize money. As the result base ball  in the Boundary is now at fever heat,  and the next event is looked forward to  with added interest, with a chance of  no little cash changing hands on the  outcome. '  The first game was between Phoenix  and Greenwood; and the boys from  Boundary's chief mining.town,'although  handicapped by little.practice, did not  do a thing to the Greenwood nine,  coming out victors by a score of 14 to  4. That was on Friday. The next  day the vistors' played with the ball  tossers from Oroville, Wash., and they  had their hands full. .The Yankees  played gOod ball and understood the  game., iThe rooting was-in favor of the  Oroville fans," probably 'because Phoe  nix had won the first game. Phoenix  led all the way, but at the end of ten  innings, when time was called, the  score was 10 to 10, the Oroville nine  evening things up by some wild plays  on the part of Phoenix. It was decided to play the game off in Midway  on June 9th for a purse of $400. Details ate now being arranged, and it is  a certainty that several hundred will  witness the'game when it is pulled off.  Subscriptions for the $200 to be put  up by the Phoeuix team are being received by Harry James, manager of  the club, and it is expected that a spe--  ial train will be secured from the Great  Northern for the club and its friends  to Midway next Sunday, week.  P. V. Perkins Made Examina-  tion of Property.  P. V. Perkins,1 a member of the  Perkins Brokerage Go.j with offices in  New York and Denver, was a visitor  here this week, leaving again on Wednesday direct for his New York office.  Through W. H. Callicotte, whose  father is a personal acquaintance of Mr.  Perkins,'the latter came to the Boundary to look at some promising mining  properties up the West Fork of Kettle  river, and made a trip to that district  accompanied by Mr. Callicotte, spending last Sunday at the mines. He  was so well satisfied with the showings  in that section that he at once arranged for a lease and bond on the Gold  Drop group of three claims from Tom  Murray, at a figure which has not been  made public.  The Gold Drop group lies not far  from the Sally, the Duncan and other  well known producers in that section,  and it is the intention of Mr. Perkins  to arrange for the beginning i.f development work at once.  Speaking to the Pioneer man, Mr.  Perkins stated: that he . thought most  favorably of the West Fork country,  from his brief inspection, and believed  that" if such showings were in some of  the districts how in the public eye,  they would command all the capital  needed or desired for development.  Mr. Perkins' concern is operating  heavily in Nevada, especially in the  Bullfrog section, and he himself makes  a trip across the continent about every  other month, to look after his many  business interests in that section.  Hereafter the Boundary will be included in his itinerary. Mr. Calli-  cotte's father is in charge of one of his  properties being operated at Bullfrpg,  and Mir." Perkins will be-back in the  Boundary in che course of another  month. He thinks that 400-ounce  silver ore is good enough for anyone,  and he proposes to go after it with  ample capital for all needs. Mr. Callicotte will look after the affairs of the  syndicate in the Boundary. It now  has-two 50-foot shafts, with a splendid  showing of high grade ore.  Peck's Bad Boy drew a good audience at' the opera house Monday  evening, those who were present seeming to enjoy the horse play for which  this piece is well known. Greenwood  and Grand Forks were also favored  with a visit by the same company this  week.  a&*\+jew*a*a^jsij*a*a&a&a&^  Sometblar Mayjftappea.

In view of the numerous requests  from this country and from abroad for  information on the mining and metallurgical industries of Canada/and the  need of such a publication to bring the  mining and metallurgical industries of  the Dominion in touch with the newly  created department of mines, the minister, Hon. Wm. Templeman, "has  authorized the collection of authentic  and reliable information for a report  on "The Mining and Metallurgical Industry of Canada." This report will  cover the whole country, and will give  the following information:  Name of company, date of incorporation and charter, authorized capital, value of shares, directors and  officers, head office, Canadian office,  number of men employed, wages,  transportation facilities, market and  prices, and the following additional information regarding the mining industry: Mining land owned and con  trolled (province, township, concession,  lot), class arid character of ore' mined,  average quality of ore (analysis), method  of mining, treatment of ore, if any; cost  of mining (drilling, explosives, hoisting,  transportation, general expenses), total  cost per ton of ore raised.  And for the metallurgical industry-  location of plant, ore treated, quality  of product, method of treatment, description of machinery and apparatus  used, source of supply of raw material,  composition of raw material, cost of  production.  It is proposed to report only upon  producing mines, mines underdevelopment, ' and established metallurgical  plants. The present rapid progress in  the development of these industries  and the changing conditions regarding  such factors as labor, market and prices  will necessitate supplementary annual  publications to bring the information  of the original report up-to date until  the changes and new material call for  the issuance of a complete new report.  It is hoped that those in charge of  the mines and industries to be reported  upon will furnish every facility to representatives - of the department of  mines, for obtaining such full and accurate data as will render the report in  British Columbia, Alberta, Saskalche-,  wan and Manitoba.

The average man cannot afford to  employ a physician for every slight ailment or injury that may occur in his  family, nor can he afford to neglect  them, as so slight an injury as the  scratch of a pin has been known to  cause the loss of a limb. Hence every  man must from necessity be his own  doctor for this class of ailments. Success often depends upon prompt treatment, which can only be had when  suitable medicines are kept at hand.  Chamberlain's Remedies have been in  the market for many years and enjoy  a good reputation.  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrohoea Remedy for bowel complaints.

My Dear Tom:  .Most mine managers seem to think  that when they have hired a miner thai  is all there is to it; and they put him  at work at any place in Ihe mine where  they wish work done. That is not my  way of doing things. I wish you to  make a study of your.men and to place  them where they will work to best advantage. There is no-man who cannot  do some things better than be can  others. If you have a man who is  good at a drive, keep him al it. Bui  don't put a good shaft man to making  a raise, nor a man whose forte is [jutting in uppers to sinking a winze.  You should know every man on the  force who has had experience in black-  smithing, timbering, 'etc'.; so, in case of  the illness or the absence of the regular  man you will know whom tn put in his  place. And when you take a man  lrom his regular work and put him at  something for which a higher wage is  paid, see that he is credited accordingly, even though his work is far from  satisfactory.  You should know every left-handed  man, every double-hand man, every  man who can strike right and left  double-handed, every machine man,  every man who is skilled in any one  particular thing, so,1 in' case you may  have need for just such a person vou  can call him aside instantly, instead of  having to make a hunt for the man  when time may be precious.  I have had men who were utterly  miserable if they were compelled, to  work off in an isolated locality all by  themselves. Some foremen' would  keep a man in such a place just to  show that they were ;boss. Don't do  it. Humor the peculiarities and idio-  syncracies of your men, not at their  request, but before they ask it; not  wholly because they wish it, but because it is to your ������ interest to have  them work where they, will be happy.  You will have some men who will  be splendid workers, but untidy. If  such men mucked out after themselves  they would leave windrows of broken  ground on the floor'behind them. Put  such men at work where the vein is  narrow and it is important to keep .the  ore separate from the,;; waste, and they  would not only be uncomfortable, but  would often wonder, whjch was the ore  and which was the waste. Keep such  men either on development work, or  in a slope where the vein is wide, and  where it will be impossible for valuable  ore to get mixed with 'waste.' '- On the  narrow vein put a man whom you  know to have, good order, and .who  exercises his saving faculties. Such a  man will take pleasure in making a  clean separation, and every ounce of  rich ore will be too precious to him to  find a place in the waste.  I put a new man at   work  one time  in a  large stope   where   the  hanging  wall was very firm   and   we   used   few  timbers.    I was   soon   aware  that he  was  exceedingly   uncomfortable.    He  was continually apprehensive that the  roof was going to cave in on him.   He  was  intelligent, and   I   endeavored to  allay his fears, but I could see, after a  few days, that   unless   I   changed   his  location I was likely ro   lose him, for  he was apt at any  time to be carried  away by an irresistible panic.    I  took  him out and put him at   work  driving  through   loose ground .where  several  men had refused to work, where, even  with   the  best   men I  could   get, the  ground would   make  runs   on us, and  we would be at great expense catching  it up and getting under way again.   In  this   place  my  new  man   was   in   his  element.    Frightened-half to death in  a safe place, he   was   perfectly   happy  doing the most dangerous work in the  mine.     No    imaginary   dangers   oppressed his mind here.    He was   face  to face with one he could  see, and he  knew he had intellect enough to avert  it.    He had so much caution  that he  never once let a run   get   started, and  he braced his timbers so solidly as he  went along that no one of them could  have been moved a quarter of an inch.  I do not mention these things as examples of what   you   are   to do under  similar circumstance.":, for  I   recognize  that conditions  in   this ' world  are sol  dom, if ever, twice the same:  neither  do I seek to give  you  the  impression  that I am a very smart man, for no one  knows better   than I that'.I   could not  successfully   pass   an    ordinary   high-  school examination, but I wish to. emphasize the fact that to make a successful foreman you must understand your  men.     It is not enough that you take  each man's estimate of  himself.    You  should know from your  own   observations just  what   each "man   can  do to  best advantage.  A good wheel-horse will settle back-  on his haunches and let himself be  dragged to the bottomof a hill before  he would let the load get beyond his  control. A good lead-horse, when not  pulling, will walk along and step lively  at times just so the singletree will not  strike at his heels. We would call a  man a fool who would put his wheel-  horses on the- lead and the leaders on  the wheel. There is just as .much  difference in men as in horses, whether  most persons recognize it or not; and I  shall expect you to know your men  and place them intelligently.

Most, people live pretty well up to the  limit 'of their powers, and so long as  everything goes smoothly that is  apparently all right; but a "jolt" or  a "jar" in the shape, of business  worries, domestic anxieties, or an  attack of La Grippe, Pneumonia,  Typhoid, or other wasting disease,  suddenly reveals the fact that there is  a sad lack of reserve force to meet  these contingencies and the result is  serious, often fatal. A wise man will  see to. it that his system is fully  fortified against sudden' attack.
