LECTURE ON THE  "MAKING OF CANADA."  Intellectual   Treat    by   Prof.  Kilpatrick.  Tuesday evening Prof. T. B. Kilpatrick, of Knox College, Toronto,  gave somewhat of an intellectual treat  to those who were fortunate enough to  hear him in the Presbyterian church.  His subject was not of a religious  nature, being the"Making of Canada,"  and he treated it in a most interesting  and instructive manner.  The speaker referred to the difficulty  of making a nation of Canada, which  arose from various causes, among them  being the vast extent of the country  and the immigration that is constantly  going on. The latter, however, would  in time assist materially in the making  of a perfect whole, it being an excellent thing for the country that it is a  mixed race to a large extent. No race  has a monopoly of all the good points,  and there are decided advantages in a  mixed race, where the best of each  can be brought together.  The professor thought that one of  the best things that could happen was  the formation of clubs, like the Canada Club of Toronto, to take an interest in striking reforms in municipal  government and matters of that kind.  The school, the home and the church,  the speaker believed, were doing much  for the country, but he thought the  low salaries paid to teachers in Ontario  for instance, was scandalous. It is  understood the salaries run as low as  $150 and $200 per annum.  Prof. Kilpatrick is spending his vacation in a tour of the west for the  purpose of informing himself regarding  the country generally, so as to be in  better touch with the conditions here.  He came through the Crow's Neat  country, speaking several times. He  spoke in Greenwood Monday night to  a crowded house, and again in Grand  Forks Wednesday evening, thence going to Nelson. While in Phoenix the  professor was the guest of Rev. Samuel Lundie, pastor of St. Andrews  Presbyterian church. Although he had  visited British Columbia before, this  was his first trip into the Boundary  country, and he was greatly impressed  with the industrial activity prevailing  here. Prof. Kilpatrick is professor of  systematic theology,   at Knox college.  TO SHIP FROM  300 TO 400TONS  Estimated    Daily   Output  Snowshoe Mine.  of  Walter  H.    Aldridge  From Trail.  Here  HA WTHORNTHW AITE  HERE  SATURDAY  Socialist  Leader    Spoke  Miners' Union.  at  THE     BIG     iSTOfZE.  Hardware Dcpt.  Our stock of  Table and  Pocket Cutlery  is now larger  than ever.  We   give   especially    good  value    in     all  ated  Railway   Matters  P. \V. Tierney & Co. have about  450 men at work on the extension up  North Fork of Kettle river.  Boyd & Co., of Vancouver, have  secured a rock contract on the Kettle  Valley extension up the North Fork  of the Kettle river.  Ed. Stirling, of the Phoenix-Eholt  limited on the C. P. R., is now handling the punch on the main line, while  Conductor Metzger is off on a vacation.  Walter H. Aldridge, who is in  charge of the affairs of the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co. of  Canada, Ltd., which has just taken  hold of the Snowshoe mine in this  camp, came in direct from Spokane  Thursday evening, and -was taken to  the Snowshoe by Manager Biesel. It  is several years since Mr. Aldridge  visited Phoenix, and he, remarked that  he was glad to note the increasing signs  of prosperity in this part of the province. Mr. Aldridge is one of the  brightest and most accomplished metallurgists in Canada, which goes with-  ont saying, when it is remembered that  he has entire charge of the mining and  smelting branches of the C. P. R.  The Pioneer man saw him yesterday  before he left for his home in Trail,  and asked him regarding the operations   at   the  Snowshoe.  "At first we shall run a little slow  here," said Mr. Aldridge, "until we  get everything in shape for steady operating, and will have but a small force.  Gradually, however, it will be increased, and I expect that in the course of  a couple of months, or thereabouts, to  see the Snowshoe shipping 300 or 400  tens of ore daily, if we can find openings enough to work through, and I  think there is no doubt about that.  From the assays of the: ore, there are  fair values here, and we should be  able to make a little money.  "No; we have not decided yet just  where we shall ship the' ore, but probably to one of the Boundary smelters.  ���We do not fancy taking any considerable amount of it across the mountains to the company's Trail reduction  works; as that haul - of the empty  dumps back to the mine is not a business proposition 1 expect that R. H.  Stewart, our general mining superintendent, will be over here before long  to look things over."  At the Trail smelter Mr. Aldridge  is introducing improvements and making enlargements month after month.  The lead refinery is now being enlarged from 50 to 75 tons daily capacity,  to be completed by September 1st,  while the new 22-foot copper furnace  is also nearly done, giving ths plant a  total capacity for treating 1,500 tons of  copper ore daily, in addition to the  lead smelting and refining. The product of the refinery is largely marketed  in the Orient.  WORKING AT  THE SNOWSHOE  Last Saturday evening James H.  Hawthornthwaite, of Nanaimo, Socialist member from that constituency in  the provincial legislature and leader of  his party in this province, was in  Phoenix and spoke in the opera house.  Mr. Hawthornthwaite has been making ,- a tour of the province, having  made several addresses in the Crow's  Nest country, and also in Grand Forks  and Greenwood in the Boundary country.  Although not a good evening for  meetings, the Socialist leader, who has  many friends in this section, had an  audience of some 200 persons 111 the  opera house last Saturday evening, and  gave a speech along the well known  Socialist lines, that lasted about two  hours.  The speaker delves into the doctrines of Carl Marx and other well  known Socialist authors, and gave his  views on what could be accomplished  with Socialism predominant, as well as  on what would probably happen if the  theories he advocated did not become  universal, as he' believed  they would.  Improving the Telephone Service.  In the past there have been com  plaints about the telephone service  in the Boundary, particularly around  Greenwood, where the old ground circuit system has heretofore been in use.  This week a gang of men arrived, under Foreman Steve Irwin, for the British Columbia Telephone Co., and they  will completely rebuild the Greenwood  plant, and put in the metallic circuit  system, the same as in Phoenix for the  last two years. After that the same  thing   will   be   done in  Grand Forks.  Before starting in at Greenwood,  Foreman Irwin had his men working  several days in Phoenix this week, running a new line to the Snowshoe mine,  another to the site of the new Victoria  shaft house, for the Granby Co., and  generally improving tbe present system. G. C. Hodge, the district superintendent, is personally looking after  the work.  Big  Phoenix    Mine    Again  Being Operated.  Manager Charles Biesel is In  Charge.  Last Saturday Charles Biesel, the  new manager of the Snowshoe mine,  for the Consolidated Mining and  Smelting Co. of Canada, Ltd., arrived  in Phoenix with his bride, formerly  Mrs. Mamie Adams, the ceremony  having been performed in Spokane.  Mr. Biesel at once took up quarters in  the comfortable manager's. residence  at the Snowshoe, and bright aud early  Monday morning a small foice of men  was employed and set at work getting  the mine in readiness for active operations.  The machinery in the compressor  building was put in shape first, and  the whistle was heard Wednesday for  the first time since the mine was definitely closed in December, 1903. This  week pipe lines are being run to various parts of the property, and the un-  watering of the shafts started, this,  p:obablv, requiring some little time.  In short, the Snowshoe is being put in  readiness to work on a considerable  scale. Just now only a few men are  employed under Foreman Lynch, the  force to be increased as the mine gets  in shape for operations. W. C. Macy  Co , Ltd.,   opened   the  Boundary Mining Notes  The entire face of the tunnel in the  Mountain Rose is now reported to he  in ore.  This week the Skylark shows up  witR three cars shipped���a new week's  record for that property.  About 30 men are now employed at  the McKinley mine, Franklin camp,  including the two diamond drill crews.  Work has been started on the  second unit for the new Idaho ore  bins. It is intended to have three  units.  When the Snowshoe workings were  pumped out the last time it required  16 days of steady work. It will likely  take as long this time.  The B. C. Copper Co. now has a  force of men developing the Oro l.)e-  noro mine, adjoining the Emma in  Summit camp, which was recently acquired.  The Dominion Copper Co. has received a Nuraa drill sharpener from  the Broisset Mfg. Co., of Salt l^ke  City, Utah, the first of its kind in this  section.  The bond on the White Bear croup,  recently taken for English capitalists,  was given to A. E. Hogue, who expect s to start work on the property in  Franklin camp shortly.  A small hoist is being installed at  the new Victoria shaft of the Granby  Consolidated, for sinking purposes.  The three compartment shaft is now-  down about 15 feet only, but will be  pushed from  this on.  Last Monday morning the actual  work of developing the Meadow Lark,  Snowshoe | acjjoiriirig the Skylark, was started with  a force of  men   under R. D. Morkill,  &   _  boarding house Monday.

Some 1 2 or 15 miles of steel have  been laid on the V., V. & E. extension  west of Midway, progress being somewhat delayed by shortage of ties,  shortage of men and necessary bridge  and trestle building.  The C. P. R. bridge gang is altering the trestle at Denoro this week,  to permit of use of the sidetrack con  necting with the Great Northern at that  point, for the purpose of handling  Idaho ores from this camp to the  Boundary Falls smelter.  The claim of R. A. Brown for compensation for right of way, etc., through  his townsite by the Kettle Valley extension up the North Fork, over which  there has been some trouble, will be  arbitrated, and in the meantime the  work of construction will proceed.  G. H. Emnierson, superintendent  of motive power, St. Paul; W'm. Kelly,  master mechanic, western division,  Spokane, and G. J. Bryan, division  freight agent, St. Paul, were Great  Northern officials who arrived Monday  on a trip of inspection, traveling in  Mr. Emmerson's private car, the Wisconsin.  From sources considered authoritative, the Pioneer learns that Midway  & Vernon matters will be straightened  out very shortly, and the construction  of the line resumed. Nothing is yet  given out as to who or what company  will take hold of and complete the  work of building this important railway link.  Tuesday IV. M. Adams, of Seattle,  assistant traffic manager of the Great  Northern, arrived in his private car,  accompanied by Mis. Adams, Miss  Gladine Rankin, of Spokane, and a  number of friends. G. W. Wooster,  treasurer of the Granby Co., and P.  II. Burn ham came up with them from  Grand Forks. The entire party went  over tbe Granby mines.

Waterlow, of London,  who is largely interested in the old  Snowshoe company, arrived here  Thursday from Nelson, with his daughter, and will remain at the mine till  Monday. Mr. Waterlow has visited  Phoenix many times heretofore while  development was going on at the  Snowshoe, and has many friends here.  He has always taken a deep interest  in the Snowshoe mine, and given the  matter more attention than most men  living so far away. He was busy yesterday in going over the property with  Mr. Aldridge. After a visit to the  coast, Mr. Waterlow will probably return to England.  Card ol Thanks.  1). XV.

Phoenix, B. C. July 21, 1906.  Crossings Still in Bad Shape.  Some time ago the Pioneer called  the attention of the C. P. R. to the  fact that the wagon road crossings between Phoenix and Hartford Junction,  which it is the duty of the company to  maintain, were in very bad condition.  Since then they have grown considerably worse, and as there is a good deal  of traffic over them it does not improve matters. E. Spragget. provincial  road superintendent from Grand Forks  riding,who was here yesterday, was  looking into the matter, and if Road-  master Yeo, a new appointee of the C.  P.R., cannot attend to the matter as he  should, Supt. Lawrence, Supt. Marpole,  and even Wm. Whyte or Sir Thomas  Shaughnessy may have to be communicated with on the subject.  With the activity constantly prevailing at the Rawhide mine, and also now  just beginning again at the Snowshoe,  | to say nothing of the general miscellaneous traffic, the need of repairs  grows, and the <���'������ P. R. does nothing  about it. Teamsters generally are  loud in their complaints of the condition of the many crossings, and it is  to be hoped they will   be   repaired   at j  J. L. Martin   made a  to Spokane this week.  Wm. R. Matheson started yesterday  on a tiip to visit his old home in Cape  Breton.  Mrs. Waterford Reed and little  son have been visiting her mother, Mrs.  W. H. Covert, at Grand Forks.  Mrs. Carroll Hele, of Mimico, Ont.,  who has been visiting her mother,Mrs.  Sarah Tufts, for a month, left this week  for Vancouver.  Revs. Lundie and Miller spent two  or three days this week at Bannock  City, on the North Fork, in quest of  finny specimens.  Manager C. H. Reeves, of the Wm.  Hunter Co. store, returned Tuesday  from a week's visit with his mother  and sister at Revelstoke.  Mrs. A. J. Galer and F. A. Galer,  mother and brother of O. N. Galer, of  '.he Granby office staff, arrived Wednesday evening from Denver, Colo., to  visit for a time.  James McCague, proprietor of the  Phoenix-Greenwood stage line, left  Tuesday for a short vacation, which  will be spent at Vancouver and other  coast points. He was accompanied  by his brother, Charles McCague.  F. C. Bailey, of Spokane, who is  interested 111 mineral claims in Providence camp, has been spending a few-  days in this city this week. Mr. Bailey  first came here years ago, when he  drove all the way from Spokane, over  1 50 miles.  II. F. Libby returned this week  from a trip to his mineral claims near  Bonanza siding, and says there is con  siderable activity now in that section,  it being the intention to install machinery as soon as the wagonroad is  put in   proper condition.  James C. McRae, of McRae Bros.  & Smith, Ltd., came up from the Midway store last week, and this week  went up the North Fork of Kettle river to enjoy a couple o( weeks camping  and fishing. Alex McRae is looking  after the Midway branch.  George C. Hodge, of Nelson, district superintendent of the British Columbia Telephone Co., Ltd., spent a  couple of days in the city this sveek,  having recently returned from a visit  to Japan, about which he has a fund  of interesting reminiscences.  E. Spraggett, road superintendent  for Grand Forks riding, was in town  yesterday, with Mrs. Spraggett- -the  first visit of the latter to Phoenix, although she has been a resident of the  Boundary for twenty years, she and  Mrs. W. H Covert being the first wo  men to settle here.  Richard Armstrong, who is interested in promising mines in the high grade  belt, was a visitor here on Thursday,  escorting W. 11. Dean, a capitalist, of  Milwaukee, through the Granby mines.  Mr. Dean has extensive interests in  mines in   Colorado   and   Mexico, and  Copper Co! and the British Columbia  Copper Co., each of which is doubling  up the capacity of its reduction works,  and it is probable that one of them  will handle it, some of the output possibly being sent over to the Trail smelter, owned by the operating company.  It is learned that the Snowshoe  minr: l.as been leased .by the Snowshoe  Gold n.ncl Copper Mines, Ltd., to the  Canadirn Mining ancl Smelting Co. of  Canada, l.ul., for a term of two years,  with an option to purchase at the  end of the lease. George S Water-  low, of London, England, the vice-  chairman and attorney for the company, was in Rossland last week, when  final details of the lease were attended  to.  The residence being built on Old  Ironsides avenue by John Ray is rapidly approaching completion.  R. F. Gurney, who has secured the  contract for painting all the residence  buildings of the Granby Consolidated  in Phoenix, has begun work, and is  now beautifying the exterior of the  Granby boarding house. Mr. Gurney  aid considerable work for the Granby  Co. at the smelter at Grand Forks.  A Boston report states that for the  month of June the smelter of the Dominion Copper Co., smelted 18,000  tons of ore, 404 tons of matte carrying  44.6% copper which, together with  gold and silver values, gave a total  gross value of $86,000 for the month.  By September 1 this output should be  more than doubled, when the new furnaces now being installed go into com- ���  mission.  Short Bits of News.  The Czar has dissolved the Russian  douma, which is considered the signal  for an uprising in Russia.  Russell Sage, who recently died in  New York, at the age of 90 years, left  a fortune of $60,000,000 to his widow.  Nine persons were drowned last Saturday, in the harbor of Vancouver, by  the cutting in two of the tug Chehahs  by the C. P. R. flyer, Princess Victoria.  Last Monday the Great Northern  had a disastrous train wreck near Spokane, a passenger train running into  Diamond lake, 32 miles east of Spokane, seven lives oeing lost and several  injured. The locomotive is in 6S feet  of water.  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS  NAME OFCOMPANV.  ( Carihoo-McKiniiey���gold   ( Uranby Consolidated��� copper.  , Providence���silver   CAPITAL.

P. R. has the least  number of accidents of any, when the  mileage and number of passengers are  taken into consideration, but all of  them have their share. As a matter  of fact, earthquake, deadly automo  biles, trolleys, fire and other agents  claim their share of victims in this life,  and that share is fully as large, if not  larger, than those who pass lo the great  beyond by the railway route.  Music as Good Advertising.  Last week the  Greenwood Citizens'  Band  was  employed    to  furnish   the  music at the Miners' Union anniversary celebration held at Rossland.   Two  weeks before,   the  same  organization  acted   in   the    same  capacity  at  the  Fourth of July celebration held by our  American cousins at   Republic, Washington, and   before that the band had  furnished   music   at   Phoenix,   Grand  Forks  and other   places,   and  a good  quality of music it was   universally acknowledged to be.    At Rossland,   the  Miner, the local daily,  said a   number  of nice things   about this band,   every  one of which was doubtless   deserved.  In view   of the  fact that some persons think a band in small places is an  extravagance, pure and simple, and not  entitled to public support, it is interesting to note these facts,   and to present  them for the benefit of those who may  be interested in places where attempts  have   been  made   to   organize   brass  ,' bands.

Templeman has assumed  control of the Dominion geological department in addition to his duties as  minister of inland revenue, an. order-  in-council having been passed transferring that department to him. It was  understood when Mr. Templeman was  given the inland revenue department  in February last that he would also be  given control of the mining department. Having in his hands the administration of the geological survey  and the mining branch of the interior  department for the time that will intervene before next session of parliament, Mr. Templeman will be in a  better position to advise in respect to  the organization of a department of  mines, with a minister of mines at the  head, for the creation of which legislation will be necessary. It is understood an act for this purpose will be  passed at the next session.  The Ruth concentrator, in the Slo-  can, is expected to be running next  month.  S. S. Fowler has been appointed resident manager of the Canadian Metal  Company.  Rossland's ore shipments last week  were 4,635 tons, making 182,857 tons  for this year.  A Portland cement works is to De  established between the towns of Blair-  mors and Frank.  Over aS.ooo tons of ore were shipped from Yale-Kootenay mines last  week, bringing the total for the year to  929,857 tons.  A big body of ore has been struck  in the 2,000 foot level of the St.  Eugene. This new strike is about  500 feet from the 200 foot shaft level.  At the Payne mine the shaft from  No. 8 tunnel is being sunk, and the  mill is being run two shifts. Occasional shipments, both of galena and  concentrate, are being made.  The C.N P.C. company has registered the names"Crow's Nest Coal"and  "Crow's Nest Coke," to distinguish their  products from that of the other companies operating in the Pass and  vicinity.  Bowel Complaint In Children.  During the summer months children  are subject to disorders of the bowels  which should receive careful attention,  as soon as the first unnatural looseness  of the bowels appears. The best medicine in use for bowel complaint is  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, as it promptly controls  any unnatural looseness of the bowels.  Sold by all druggists.  Is Railway Traveling Extra Hazardous ? |  oc_ j form of advertising, and one that brings  The worst railway calamity ever  curringin southeastern British Columbia happened last Saturday on the  Nelson & Fort Sheppard line at Beaver  Canyon, in which four lives were lost,  several being injured. Then on Monday seven were killed in a railway  wreck on the Great Northern near  Spokane. These accidents happened  near at home, as it were, and may tend  to make timid ones -hesitate about  traveling, for the time being. It is a  matter of record, however, that accidents of this nature are more or less  prevalent all over this continent, but  being almost at hand, they aie brought  more into the local public eye. Only  a short time ago a terrible accident of  this nature occured on one of the great  highly organized -English railways,  showing that they will take place occasionally in any country.  As to whether railway travelling is  extra hazardous, statistics have shown  that no more people lose their lives in  this manner than in many others that  could be referred to. And yet, no  one wishes to take unnecessary chances  in the matter.  It is almost a work of supererogation to point out that the railway companies, aside from the loss of life, are  Bhe feaavi&st lasers by such accidents,  and it is fee th&i>r own interest to use  a\ior-y passible precaution against such  tsliiMags. For themselves, they say they  do provide everything known to modern invention to preclude such accidents, which are usually followed by  heavy damage suits. And it stands  them in hand to do so. But, after,all,  they must deal with the human element, which unfortunately cannot'always be relied upon.  good returns, indirectly, if not directly.  Both Grand Forks and Phoenix now  have band organizations, having recently purchased sets of new instruments, which makes three bands in the  Boundary country. If these new bands  keep up their practice and do as well  as the Greenwood musicians have done  in the past, they will serve a most useful purpose, and will deserve the support which, under those circumstances,  they will doubtless receive. The cultivation of music is a good thing, not  only for those who take part in its production, but for the public at large,  and the keeping up of such organizations is one of the best forms of advertising known to modern publicity makers. Thus, if the rule works out, the  Boundary will have three times as  much publicity in the future, in a musical way, as it has heretofore enjoyed  Great Northern Special Rales.

An Appeal to Naturalists.  The Natural. History Society has  undertaken the work of establishing a  Wild Flower Garden in Victoria. We  have secured a most eligible site in  Beacon Hill Park and the city authorities have promised to make us two  small rocky ponds.  Our aim is to secure a representative collection of the many beautiful  wild flowers and shrubs native to this  province.  We now appeal to any one who is  interested in the flora of his particular  locality to help us. We want this fall  only those subjects that will thrive on  rocks and in dry situations, as we shall  not have water till next season.  Our funds are' limited and we cannot offer to pay for plants, but will  gladly pay freight charges. It is a labor of love on our part and we shall  be glad to hear from any one able and  willing to help us in the good work.  Edw.   Alex.  Wallace,  Victoria, B. C. President.  P. 0.  Box 56.

A report from Boston states that  there still remain in the hands of  stockholders several hundred thousand  sharts of the Dominion Copper Co. of  the $i par value which have not been  exchanged, on the basis of one new  share for 10 old, for the $10 certificates. That the unexchanged shares  will remain with the stockholders for  some time is the opinion of an official  of the Dominion Co. This belief is  based on' the sale and transfer tax,  now effective, whereby 2 cents per  share is levied on every transfer of  slock, regardless of par vabie. At this  rate 10% of the market value of the  I'otock would become payable for the  privilege of obtaining the new $10  stock.

When Maxim, the famous gun inventor, placed his gun before a com  mittee of judges, he stated its carrying  power to be much below what he felt  sure the gun would accomplish. The  result of the trial therefore was a great  surprise, instead of disappointment. It  is the same with the manufacturers of  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. They do not pub  licly boast of all this remedy will ac  complish, but prefer to let the users  make the statements. What they do  claim is, that it will positively cure diar  rhoea, dysentery, pains in the stomach  and bowels, and has never been known  to fail.    For sale by all druggists.  Will some one rise and explain why  it is that, when there is plenty of real  news in the country for a live man to  handle, so much misinformation is  sent out from Grand Forks? Last  week the enterprising individual who  sits behind the pen for the outside papers for that town, discovered that  Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Consolidated, was about to take a trip, and  Mr. Hodges is taking them all the  time, more or less, in the course of  his duties. Immediately, Mr. Misinformation sends it out that Mr. Hodges was off for Montreal and New York  to consult with the directors of the  company, when nothing of the kind  was in mind. Mr. Hodges went to  Vancouver to enjoy a well-earned,  though brief, outing in camp, having  purchased a yacht there and being  handy to the city in case ol need.  Again, Mr. Misinformation sends  out monthly that the Granby Co. has  a payroll of $40,000 at its smelter.  Such is not the case, as any official of  the company would doubtless readily  tell him, if he took the trouble to inquire. The payroll of the Granby  Co., at both mine and smelter, is  hardly $75,000 per month, the biggest  part of it naturally being at the company's mines.  ���M  Perhaps these things are not of  great importance, but there are all  kinds of good reliable news to be obtained in this developing Boundary  country, and there is little or no ex  cuse for sending out such rot as the  above. Besides that, while we who  live here, know the unreliable character of the so-called news sent out by  this correspondent, outsiders do not.  ������t  The preacher-editor of the new Nelson Daily Canadian is putting out a  good paper for the facilities at his command. In fact, he seems to be proving that there was a place for the paper after all, notwithstanding that there  was always one good daily paper in the  Kootenay metropolis ��� the News ���  which still sets the pace for any town  of its size in British Columbia.

It is to be hoped that it will be better  able to keep alive than most of the  similar organizations throughout the  Kootenays and Yale.  Here's a problem, and we hereby  offer a year's subscription to the  Pioneer to the first one who will send  a correct answer to this office. If it  took Duncan Ross, M. P., ten months  to secure a mail survice over the  Great Northern railway���ten months  after the railway was operating passenger trains to this place���how long it  will take the same estimable gentleman  to secure a mail service between  Greenwood and Phoenix that will not  require from two to four and five days  in transmission one way? Now, don't  all speak at once.  �����f  Just turn it over in your mind,  gentle -reader, from the Honorable  Kodolphe Lemieux, postmaster-general  down. Two whole days���if you are  in luck���to get a piece of mail matter  from Greenwood to Phoenix, towns  scarcely five miles apart, and connected by the C. P.R., running trains  six days a week. Is that not enough  to make a horse laugh?  If you are superstitious about the  number 13 you had better give us  your American quarter dollars, for on  each one are 13 stars, 13 letters in  the scrool of the eagle's beak, 13 leaves  on the olive branch, 13 arrow heads and  13 letters in the words "quarter  dollar." No; its not safe to keep them,  so bring them in and get credit on  your subscription for the full   amount.  Judge  W. n.   TowtiBtnd   One   ol   the   l!n  fortunate Victims.  No   longer  can   it   be said, as   has  often been stated in the past, that  the  Spokane Falls & Northern ��� a Great  Northern extension   into   British   Columbia���has  never   been   responsible  for the death of a passenger since the  road   began   operations    in   October,  1889.  Last Saturday night a terrible accident occurred on the Spokane-Nelson  train   at   Beaver Canyon, seven   miles  above Waneta,  B.   C, in   which four  lives   were   lost  and   several   persons  were injured.    The killed were Judge  W.   B.   Townsend,   one  of "the  best  known men in this section; I.N. Corn-  thwaitc, of Spokane;   M.   1).   Mclvin-  non, purser of the steamer   Kaslo; XV.  B.   Smith,   bartender   of the  steamer  Kaslo.    The injured were Mrs. \V. U.  Poole,   of Spokane; Miss  Wragge, ol  Cranbrook;    Louis Bergeison, ol Stillwater, Minn.; Chas. Summers, porter  on the buffet coach; Conductor G. F.  Ingerham and Brakeman E. A. Paden:  When Hearing the bridge, the buffet  car, the last on the train, left the rails  and dragged the day coach with it, the  engine and other  coach remaining oti  the metals.    The   day  coach   turned  over completely, the  two  cars   falling  some forty feet.    Judge Townsend and  the other victims   of the  fatality were  instantly killed.  As soon as possible the dead and injured were taken to Nelson.  How the accident occurred   is  said  by the railway people to be a   mystery  as yet, as the coaches were all carefully  inspected  before leaving  Spokane   in  the morning, as usual. An examination of the track itself at the scene of  the accident, showed that it was in  good shape.  Judge  Townsend's   home    was   in  Rossland, and he was widely.and favorably known all over the Kootenays and  Yale. Last summer he was in and  out of Phoenix the entire season, in  his capacity as right-of-way agent for  the West Kootenay Power & Light  Co, then building its high-tension  lines into the Boundary from Kootenay river. He had recently accepted j ��X_X_x_x_X_x_i����_x_a_^^  a position as right-of-way agent with  the Great Northern, and was to work  at the coast for the V., V. & F.  Judge Townsend was born in England in 1838, and was a veteran of the  Criiiiean war. He lived at New Westminster for 16 years, being mayor there  at one time. He came to Rossland  in the nineties.  mmmmm  Winnipeg  Exhibition  Rates  Prom   Cranbrook, B. O.  $20.85  ROUND TRIP.  On Sale July _o to 27.    Good  to    return    until    August    2.  MRS.

In case you wish to drop a line to  Canada's governor-general, '* here is the  orthodox way to open fire:  "To his Excellency the Right Honorable Sir Albert Henry George, Earl  Grey, Viscount Howick, Baron Grey  of Howick, in the county of Northumberland, in the Peerage of the United  Kingdom and a Baronet: Knight  Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished  Order of Saint Michael and Saint  George, etc., etc., Governor General of  Canada."  Sing a song of pestilence, a fellow  full of rye, four and twenty serpents  dancing in his eyes; when his eyes  were opened, he shouted for his life,  wasn't he a pretty chump to go before  his wife? His hat was in the parlor  underneath the chair; his boots were  in the hallway, his coat was on the  chair, his trousers in the kitchen, his  collar on a shelf, but he hasn t any notion where he was himself. When the  morn was breaking, someone heard  him call���his head was in the icebox,  which was the best of all.  He was a very young clergyman  and on this his first day at his first ap  pointment, he showed evident nervousness. After reading the service the  young clergyman faltered out the following announcement:  "Services will be held at 10 a. m.  next Sunday at the north end, and in  the afternoon at the south end at half  past three. Infants will be baptized  at both ends."  Latest Mining   Stock Quotation!.  Following are the approximate  prices  of mining stocks for thiB week:  ��� ID ASKSD  American   Bov  ,K 01 '4  B.   C.

Very encouraging news comes from  the Granby mine, and it is claimed  that before the close of the year the  company will be able to handle nearly  5,000 tons of rock daily where at present only about 3,000 tons are sent to  ihe mills.  The Granby mine is an example of  what economical management will accomplish for a low grade property.  During a period of three years the  management has succeeded in reducing  production costs nearly three cents a  pound and at the same time largely increasing the production of the mines,  until equipment is abont ready for  operation that will handle fully 5,000  tons of rock daily.  Granby is earning $1.50 per share  on a production of 3,000 tons of ore  daily, and before the close of 1906  earnings should be increased to nearly  $3 a share.���United States Investor.

An   announcement   of the   deepest  interest to all lovers of music is that of  the   engagement   of Olivia   Dahl, the  new   "Jenny Unci," as   she has been  called, for a concert at the opera house  on   Wednesday   evening,   August 1st.  Miss Dahl is not alone the idol of the  Norwegian people; she is one  of the  most appreciated  of all  the artistes of  northern Europe, and the fact that her  name is as yet   less  familiar   than the  names of Melba, Nordica, Gadski and  Marcella Sembrich is in  large measure  explained by the fact that the Scandinavian people have had  strong  objection to losing their favorite singer, even  for   the  short   period required for the  American tour.    It was when the promoters of the great Minneapolis  festival   sought from   Kdward   Grieg,   the  foremost   composer   of   the age,   the  artiste whom in his opinion was  qualified   best to give vitality and color to  his works, that  they  were  referred to  Olivia  Dahl, the composer's pupil and  protege, who  was   eventually engaged  as the star soloist of the last Minneapolis festival, where she won the hearts  of 12,000 listeners in a night.  Miss Dahl came to Americawith this  introduction from the world's greatest  modern composer:  "It gives m,e great pleasure to introduce my compatriot, Miss Olivia Dahl,  to the American people. She is a  most capable singer, and possesses  a beautiful and most sympathetic voice.  She moves with surpassing ease in the  domain of song literature, interpreting  with equal intelligence the varied sentiments of the art song and the popular  ballad. I feel confident that Miss  Dahl, with her attractive personality,  will win the sympathy and appreciation  of music-loving circles in the far west."  " Christina lake is attracting a number of campers during the heated season.  The C. P. R. is reported to be considering building a boarding house at  Eholt.  Frank Hartinger, brewer of Grand  Fotks, was fined $25 by Magistrate  Cochrane for selling beer without a  city license.  - The new wagon road to Franklin  camp is said to be in good condition  now for heavy freighting, and there  will doubtless be a large amount of it.  Rails have been distributed along  the Eholt-Phoenix branch of the C. P.  R., to replace the lighter iron that has  done duty for the last six years or  thereabouts.-  G. \V. Clark, formerly of the staff of  Nelson public school, has resigned the  principalship of Grand Forks high  schooi, which he has held since September, 1903.  Ida Hartinger, of Grand Forks, won  the governor general's bronze medal  for tbe pupil receiving the greatest  number of marks at the high school  entrance examinations.  The tax sale of realty took place in  Greenwood this week, but most of the  parcels of land had been redeemed before the sale took place, the balance  being taken up by local capitalists.  Work is now proceeding on the new  hotel at Franklin City, now that the  wagon road is completed, about 30,-  000 feet of lumber being on the  ground. B. Lequime is erecting the  hotel, and' will also put up a store at  the same place.  Duncan Murray, for years a resident  of Phoenix, but latterly engineer of the  Pathfinder mine, North Fork, had the  misfortune to meet with a broken leg  last week, but his many friends will be  pleased to hear that he is getting along  nicely at the hospital at Grand   Forks.  At the meeting of Greenwood Typographical Union No. 358, held at  Greenwood last Sunday, the following  officers were elected: President, James  W. Ellis; vice-president, Ed. Rowland;  secretary-treasurer, G. A. Evans; executive committee H. S. Turner, W.  Laugh ton and F. J. Kirkpatrick.  Wm. A. Nicholson, who lost his  eyesight in the Providence mine, has  been awarded damages under the  Compensation Act, amounting to $10  per week till the amount reaches  $1,500, payment commencing from  the time of the accident. The award  was made by Judge Clement in the  county court.  Grand Forks had a $15,000 fire last  Sunday night, when the furniture stor_  and contents owned by j. W. Jones,  with some smaller structures, went up  in smoke. There was about $10,000  insurance. Mr. Jones is absent in the  Similkameen, and the origin of the  fire is a mystery. The fire department is given considerable credit for  confining the flames to the place of  origin, practically.
