At last the word has arrived to proceed with the construction of the V.,  V. & E. railway  west from   Midway, and have settled down in one of the  Qalcr-DeSp-la W___l__.  Last Wednesday a quiet wedding  took place in Nelson, when two youns  people of Phoenix were united, for life.  Rev. T. J. Ferguson, pastor of the  Nelson Presbyterian cnurch, perfoimed  the ceremony for Oliver N. Galer and  Miss Maud DeSpain. Misses Daisy  and Marion Hodges, daughter, of  Supt. Hodges, of the Granby mines,  were bridesmaids, and. \V. X, McDonald was best man. Mr. and Mr..  Galer returned to the city Wednesday,  BACK FROM  THE YUKON  Boundary Mining Notes  Mr.   and    Mrs.   Hodges  Party of Engineers.  m  Trip  Full   of   Interest  Pleasure.  and  Blackberries,    Raspberries,    Cherries  Watermelons, Canteloups, Etc., Etc.  and that little town is now beginning  to be the scene of unwonted activity.  Patrick ��� Welch, partner of J. W.Stewart, who has had the contract for  some . time, as stated by the Pioneer,  received telegraphic advices in Spokane last Monday from St. Paul, and  at once started for this section with  other Spokane contractors, arriving  here Tuesday evening, and proceeding  at once to Midway with his lieutenants.  Mr. Welch was back here Wednesday,  leaving the next morning for Seattle on  business connected with the contract,  and will return next Monday.  This contract is for the railway line  from Midway, on this side of the international bourdaiy line, to Molson,  which is just across the line; and also  from the point where the line swings  back into British Columbia from  Washington, above Oroville, to Kere-  meos���in all about 50 miles of grading. There is still a link unlet, from  Molson to Oroville, which is'likely to  be shortly awarded.  A bunch of sub contractors is now  busy going over the route and in a few  days it will be known who willactually  do the work now ordered to be undertaken. Among them is the firm of  Burns & Jordan, who graded several  miles on the Phoenix extension last  year, including the Phoenix end, and  whose outfit, or most of it, is now  stored here. Mr. Jordan went through  Tuesday night.  Midway will be the base of supplies  for the railway contractors for a year  or niore to come. The Great North  ern will at once start laying the iron on  ihe 14 mile extension from Curlew to  Midway, the grading for which was  completed iast summer when the line  was constructed from Grand Forks to  I'hoenix. About iS cars of steel are  now on hand at Curlew for this purpose, and with the delays incident to  getting in the rest of the steel, the rails  on that part 01 the line should be  down in two or three weeks more.  As it will take a little time to get  camps established'and the work opened up, the contractors will be ready  for all laborers that will offer alter the  Granby cottages on Second street,  where they were the recipients of sev  eral delegations of enthusiastic friends  that evening.      :'  Mrs. Galer |s the daughter of Mrs.  S. A. McCormackj'v of this city, and  during the several years she has lived  here has been one of the most popular  girls in Phoenix. Mr. Galer has been  employed in the office of the Granby  mines for some years, and also has a  host of friends, with _vhom the Pioneer  joins in wishing the happy couple a  long life of happiness.     .     ':  GOVERNMENT WON  INAL13ERNL  Premier    McBride    Endorsed  by Electors.  Although returns-have yet to be received from a few isolated polling  places the result of the Alberni bye-  election of last Saturday is placed beyond all doubt by the substantial lead  obtained by Mason, the government  candidate, in the chief polling places  already heard from. The returns so  far received give Manson 243 votes  and Aitken 17 S, a majority of 65 for  Manson, and the returns yet to come  cannot wipe out this lead. 'The result  has occasioned no surprise. The Liberals put up ���-�� strong fight, but lacker-  organization and funds.

GENERAL NEWS OF BOUNDARY  The C.P.K.   roundhouse  at   Grand ��� toria are to enforce  the  act  Forks was demolished   by   the  severe ; the careless starting of fires.  covering  windstorm of last week Friday.  A printing plant is said to have arrived at Midway, and that town will  ha\c a weekly paper shoitly.  It was so warm ovtr in Oroville last  week that even the railway laborers  were forced to suspend operations for  ihe time being.  John Kirkup, of Rossland, is reported as saying that while in Midway last  week the thermometer registered 120  degrees in the shade. Different in  I'hoenix. The genial assessor wa? on  an assessing trip.  Two miles of the nine to complete  the wagon road to Franklin camp have  been built; of the remaining seven, the  McKinley Mines will build three miles.  W. H. P. Clement of Grand Forks,  has been appointed deputy county  court judge, temporarily, during the  illness of Judge Andrew Leamy.  Invitations have been received  locally to take part in the banquet to  he given to Duncan Ross, M. P., next  Tuesday at Gieenwood, and the affair  will be largely attended from all over  the Boundary. The committee in  charge consists of C. S. Galloway, A.  D.Hallet and A. V. Thomas, the latter  being the secretary. The function will  take   place at the Imperial hotel.  (Nonstable Darraugh and Dinsmore  were at Cascade this week,taking alon  Monday evening the Boundary Creek  license commissioners at Grand Forks  granted license to C. H. Thomet, Oakland hotel, Midway L. A. Manley,  Swanson hotel, Midway, and Martin  Defour, Stockholm hotel, Myers Creek.  The latter was opposed, but was granted, a strong resolution beiug passed to  limit licenses in future. The commission will meet again August 4th,  at Grand Forks, to pass upon B. Le-  quime's application for the Railway  hotel, also at Midway.  Excellent progress is being made by  the B. C. Distributing and Construction Co., in the building of the high  tension power line into the Boundary  from Bonnington for the We*t Kootenay Pjwer & Light Co. about 300  men are distributed all along the route,  dealing right of way, distributing poles,  .'<-. About twenty miies of holes  have been dug. It is thought it will  be February 1st before the line is  ready for business.  I-ast Monday at  4   a.m.   the   store  building and contents, owned by J. H.  Hodsoii, in Grand Forks, and located  nearly opposite the C.P.R. station, was  completely destroyed by fire, with the  Thatcher-Nelson block adjoining.   Mr.  Hodson carried about $5,000 in stock,  and   $1,500 insurance.    The location  is   in   the   old city of Columbia, now  united with Grand  Forks.    The Hod-  Magistrate Cochrane, of Grand  Forks,  son building was owned  by Hay, Mc-  for the purpose of making   it   hot   fori Galium   __   Wright, who also had their  whoever   was  responsible   for  setting [ office there.      The building was worth  forest fires along the right of way of  die West Kootenay Power i\r Light  Co.'s pole line and along the railway  line.    Much valuable timber   was  de  frayed,   and    instructions   from   Vic-  paitially insured  $1,500; insured for $900. The other  building, unoccupied, was owned by  the Colonial Investment it Loan Co.,  of Toronto, was valued at $2,000, and  This week A. B. W. Hodges, general superintendent of the Grauby Co.,  returned from atrip to the Yukon with  Mrs. Hodges, having travelled with the  party of -the American Institute of  Mining Engineers, and being absent  from the Boundary nearly a month.  The trip was full of interest from beginning to end, and was much enjoyed  by Mr, and Mrs. Hodges.  At Victoria the annual session ofthe  institute was; held, and while in the  capital city the provincial government  and the citizens generally did everything possible to make things pleasant  for the members of the party. In both  Victoria and Vancouver banquets 'were  tendered the engineers, after which  they; struck out for the far north on a  special steamer. - The first stop was at  Port Simpson, and then at the famous  Tread well mine, on Douglas Island,  Alaska, where a visit was made to the  deep workings, some 600 feet belOw  the sea level, the mine being located  on the-sea.  Fro'm Skagway the party travelled to  Whitehorse oh the Yukon narrow gauge  railway, where they took steamer down  the Yukon'nver to Dawson, being met  at Whitehorse by. a committee from  Dawson. In the Yukon capital, the  governor, W. W.. B. Mclnnis, and  other officials made their stay as pleas  ant as possible in' every conceiveable  manner, $5,000 having been appro  priated foi the purpose, half pf which  was contribnted by the Dominion government. The reception was in true  northern style,' with bands playing and  flags flying.' At a cost of $40 per day  for rigs, the party was taken to the  Dome, where a fine view of the Yukon  gold watershed was had, a number of  the best creeks being visited, and the  much talked of art of "cleaning-up"  was witnessed. Mrs. Hodges did  some panning herself, while Mr.  Hodges did the shovelling like any  mucker, the result of one pan being  $2.50 in gold. Mrs. Lodges proved  to be the greatest adept of any of the  ladies in handling the pan. Those desiring to do so, took nuggets, which  were weighed and paid for.  No expense was spared in showing  the members of the party the wonders  of the Yukon. The baseball game at  midnight, as promised, did not materialize, as the younger portion of the  party preferred a ball gotten up in  their honor. But Mr. Hodges said it  was as light there at midnight as it is  here at six p.m. Each member was  presented with gold souvenirs, being  stickpins and brooches.  Of course, it was known that prices  were high in the Yukon, but when a  member of the party bought a couple  of daily papers, gave a fifty cent piece  and received no change, it was realized  that the Yukon was no cent belt. The  champagne served at a sumptuous  banquet cost $15 per bottle and other  things in proportion. Hotels in the  Yukon are generally poor���not as good  as the best in the Boundary���but the  hospitality was unbounded.  On the way a number of glaciers  were seen, notably the Taku glacier.  When the party was returning a stop  was made at Alert Bay to see one of  the large canning factories in operation. Taken altogether, the trip was  one much enjoyed and long to be remembered.  At the meeting of the institute at  Victoria, by special request Mr.  Hodges gave a talk on the automatic  self charging apparatus lately installed  ai th�� Granby smelter, which many of  the party had recently seen in opera  lion.  Granby shares are  now quoted at  $6.87^$ on the Boston exchange.  The Knight & Stone diamond drill  which has been operating on the Wol  fard group in Wellington camp, with  such excellent results, is being  moved to the Jewel property, near  Hedley, in the Similkameen.  It is understood that about the 1st  of August the Brooklyn mine will start  operations with a good force of men.  The new foreman, Mr. Sampson,' has  had two or three men busy around the  mine this week.  MIDWAY &  VERNON, TOO  Manager Frederic Keffer, of the  B. C. Copi>er Co. who has been on an  extended trip to New York, and .came  back via the Similkameen, where * the  company is doing work on the Sunset  group, reached Greenwood last 'week  Friday. He may make another , trip  east shortly. .:..,'.���:  An ore house was built this' week  at :he Mavis, and 600 feet of road constructed to connect with the wagon  road, so that a shipment can be .sent  out about the 1st of August. Ari average assay this week gave over $104,  A-hile a picked sample ran. $1,358.  The property looks better than ever.  There is talk once more of reviving  the project of driving a 4,000 .foot  tunnel into Hardy mountain, near  Grand Forks, thereby tapping a number of leads at a depth of some 1,800  feet. It is claimed that.it can be done  for $75,000, ��nd that an average of  $20 per ton can be obtained from the  ore veins thus tapped.  Mark F. Madden, won the five suits  on trial last week in Nelson regarding  the control of the Providence mine,  the local shareholders and directors  being beaten at nearly every point.  The cases were tried before Mr. Justice  Irving, and Mr. Madden states that he  is much pleased at the outcome, the  losers, of. course, ft cling just the opposite. It is not unlikely that one or  two of the cases will be appealed. The  Providence mine itself is being worked  steadily, as usual.  " On or about the 1 oth of August, according to the latest estimate, Supt.  Hodges expects to close down the: en-  lire battery of furnaces at the Granby  smelter for about a week, for the purpose of connecting up the two new and  larger furnaces, now about installed.  When connections are made, the full  .battery of eight furnaces will reduce  about 2,700 tons of ore daily. The  new brick stack is now about 1.00 Jeet  high, with but 50 feet yet to be done.  During Mr. Hodges' absence in the  Yukon the construction work has been  pushed, but laborers have been short.  From now on every effort will be made  to finish it up and get the new furnaces in operation as soon as possible.  Construction    Beginning  That  Line.  on  McLean Brothers, of Vancouver, the Men.  Fernie was again visited by a disastrous fire on Thursday at midnight,  the loss being about $50,000. The  water supply was again inadequate.  There will be a special meeting of  the Presbytery ol Kootenay in St. Andrew's Presbyterian church on Thursday evening, August 3, at 7 o'clock, to  deal with the resignation of Rev. E. C.  W. MacColl. A congregational meeting will be held in the same place at 8  o'clock, at which members and all interested in the work of the congregation are invited to be prt sent.  Will Celebrate Labor Day.  At a meeting of the Phoenix Trades  and Labor Council, held last Tuesday  evening, it was decided to celebrate  Labor Day this year, as usual, the data  being Monday, September 4th. It is  the intention to have tha celebration  take the form of that of last year, with  sports, a picnic and a dance in the  evening, the proceeds to be applied" to  the building fund of the Miners' Union  opera house and hall. Another meeting wiil be held next Monday evening,  when committees will be appointed,  and plans formulated for the celebration. This will be the fifth annual  celebration of I_��bor Day in this camp.  With the start being made on the  construction of the V;, V. __ E. west  from Midway, also, comes the news  this'week that work is being begun on  the grading of the Midway & Vernon  railway. To add zest to the situation  it only requires that the C.P.R. begin  work west from Midway���as many  think it will shortly.  Thursday evening one of the McLean Brothers, railway contractors of  Vancouver, arrived on the Great  Northern, and stated that he would at  once start on the Midway & Venion  line, and inquired where he could secure a lot of teams, etc. He stated  that the line was not being constructed  by the C. P. R., but independently of  that company.. Whether only sufficient work, is to be done to hold the  charter, or whether construction will  be prosecuted in earnest through to  Vernon, does not yet appear.  It is but a few weeks since Gustave  Loeb, of the gTeat banking firm of  Kuhn, Loeb & Co., of New York, was  in the Boundary, looking into matters  connected with , the financing of the  Midway & Vernon���a branch of business that the firm makes a specialty of.  It now seems that the matter has been  arranged, and that the promoters of  the toad 'hate secured aid to assist  them in building the road and thereby  securing about $11,000 in subsidies,  carried by the charter. If the Midway  & Vernon, when built, is leased to the  C.P.R., it would save that company  about 24. hours in time between the  Boundary and Vancouver.  NEW BRANCH FOR  THE E. T. BANK  Was Opened Last  Friday at  Midway.  Last week Friday a branch of the  Eastern Towships Bank was opened at  Midway by Wm. Spier, manager ofthe  Grand Forks branch of the institution.  K. C. Moe, formerly with the Grand  Forks branch, is in charge of the new  sub-agency at Midway, which is already  doing business, with G. T. Campbell  as his assistant. This makes four  branches of this bank west of Winnipeg���one each at Vancouver, Grand  Forks, Midway and Phoenix.  With the new railway construction  connecting the Boundary with the  Similkameen country, there is demand  for more b.nking facilities, and the  Eastern Townships Bank are providing these at a point that is convenient  for a large n.miber of persons.

I^ur-  ing the last two weeks many expressions to this effect have been heard  locally., .If.it keeps up, pretty soon, it  may be possible to advertise Phoenix  as a summer resort Mo.reMoh'derful  things have happened in-thisVo!dJ fjray  world of ours. It is riot easy to find  a town inland where there is a more  desirable .clirhate in.the summer :  .'������������  A good start has been made on :the  new opera house and hall, to be erected here by the Miners' Union, and  henceforth ho time will be lbst in ,the  completion "'Of the large structure. ; It  will be fomethingiliat .hasflong been  needed iii Phoenix, and will be a credit  to the union and .to jthe place._^ One  matter has already come, up. that is of  general public interest, and that is the  seating of the opera house.  ���is .;:''.  A year or two ago the world, was  horrified at the Iroguois theatre disaster at Chicago, in which several hundred persons wtre burned or trampled  to death. After that some genius set  his wits to work to contrive a theatre  seat that would, to a large extent,-do  away with loss of life in case of panic.  He finally succeeded,' and called the  seat the Iroquois, after the terrible disaster at Chicago. Every seat is on a  pivot and every seat folds up automatically, thus making aisUts in every  direction, and facilitating getting' out,  i 1 case'of need, to the greatest possible  d'-greo. In ivarly every place where j  this particular seat has been introduc  ed, it has given the greatest satisfaction, and although it cost iathcr**?uiore  than ordinary sesting it is' we'.l^vorth  ihe price.  In Fernie- the coal company owns  thiftelephohe system/ the: electric light  system, the water system arid a few.  other-,1 besides all the coal mines .jn,  that locality. 'I'll- city wishes to put  in a first .class water' .system and;^  sewer system, but, the Crows Nest Hisi  Coal -Co, does noil wish to see ;trTe  water system.'/installed; as it would put  its o.vn little waterworks out of ���busif  ness. ., At this, distance/it would seem  to'beagocd thing.for Fernie if some  one else than the coal company bwned  at least afew of the public utilities in  that ehte'rpfisinijjtovyn.  . * .-.���;_...,-    ������������%  ".:., ���:-~:.;z,:':, ������;��.:.':,'..

It  would be better, even, to. secure a  smaller number of seats at first, if that  is considered necessary on account of  expen'-e. The opera house will be  modern in every way, we1 understand,  and it is to be hoped that it will be so  in the way mentioned.  A reader ofthe Pioneer asks what  remedy there is'.for.: the everlasting  nuisance of cow bells ringing/more or  less, all night long around residences  in this town. In reply it may be noted  that there is a pound bylawon the city  books, but it' never seems to be enforced, and until some one takes the  matter up it is likely to remain a dead  letter. Cows and horses are alloWed  to roam at will, and their bells are not  unlike those of a charivari party. They  wander up and down in the cool ofthe  night, making sleep impossible for all  within hearing. * Possibly ifone or two  of the animals were impounded and  the owner fined, the alleged music  would be heard les�� frequently.  Timothy Eaton has opened a branch  in Winnipeg, and has most thoughtfully notified his many friends in the  Boundary to that effect. Those who  believe in patronizing home industry,  however, will continue -to do business  with their home merchants. If every  man, woman and childin Phoenix sent  away for all food and-raiment needed,  there would be nothing/or the average!  business man to do.     Fortunately, the  ��� There seems to be a settled conviction, in the minds of many >that the C.  P.R. will not permit the Great Northern to tap the rich Similkameen district all by their lonesome, but that, on  the contrary, the moment that work is  actually started from Midway west, the  C.P.R. will be there, too, building as  fast as men and money can do it, extending its line into'that''fertile dis-  ;ricf. From the evidences so fur at  hand, it .seems assured that Midway;  vhieh has been all hut -dead and  '.juried, unfortunately, fur several ye;>rs,  will becoi.neone of the livi-st corpses in  the. west.  -   Will Rival Butte.  The testimony of Manager Gooda'e,  1 lit? great -metallurgist, of Butte, a recent visitor to the Boundary, regarding  our mining outlook, is well worth reprinting. Here is what Mr. Goodale  said:  "I am deeply impressed with the  possibilities ot the mining industry in  British Columbia. There is every  reason to. believe that the output of the  mines of the Boundary District will before many years rival that of Butte in  regard to" tonnage. Nature has not  been so considerate at Butte. The  values of our mines are higher, of  course, running from $9.36 to $12.85  per ton, but we have to bring our lime  for fifty miles at a cost of $1 per ton.  Taken altogether, and remembering  that we have to roast our ores, we  have more complicated problems to  deal with than exist in the Boundary  District."  NOTICE.  .'Little Ci ieP' .
