CONSOLIDATED'S NEW  FURNACE BLOWN IN  Largest   Copper   Furnace   in  ��� ���.'���,    Canada  The largest copper furnace in the  Dominion-of Canada, 42 inches by  25 feet, was blown in by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., at its  Trail smelter: Friday. This gives the  company four large copper furnaces,  with a capacity of. 1800 tons per day,  for smelting ores from the Snowshoe  mine, Phoenix, and Rossland mines.  Mechanical feeders are being installed on the large lead furnace. This  furnace has the .distinction of smelting  more ore and producing  more  bullion  daily than  any  other  lead furnace onJ city on Wednesday.    Although the de  the American continent.    It makes as  high as 98 tons of bullion in 24   hours  and the refinery is  producing  as  high  as 75 tons of pure lead daily.  The Consolidated company has been  reaching out and acquiring some of the  best.mines in East and West Kootenay,  and within the past few weeks has been  trying to secure another valuable property in the Boundary.  Last week another  silver-lead property was added to its holdings  when  the company took a bond on the Alice  near  Creston.    This  mine  C.P.R. RUNS SUNDAY  TRAINS TO PHOENIX  New Schedule Goes Into Effect  Tomorrow  That the Canadian Pacific Railway  company were considering the requests  from Phoenix for an improved railway service was stated by the Pioneer  some weeks ago. This is borne out in  the new schedule which goes into  effect on the C.P.R. tomorrow.  Commencing June 6, Phoenix and  other points in the Boundary Will be  given a Sunday train, was the information given to the Pioneer by G. R.  CJ. Bagnall of Nelson, the popular  travelling passenger agent, when in the  tails of the new schedule are not to  hand as yet, the Sunday train will be  the feature of the changes for- the  Boundary. The regular running  schedule of the train to Nelson will  only be slightly changed, leaving Phoenix at 1.25 p.m. daily and   arriving at  5 P-m  The Sunday train into the Boundary  will be an experiment by the C.P.R.  during the summer months, and if the  traffic warrants it the service will no  doubt be continued.

Mr. Bran, (former president of Snowstorm mine), accompanied  me. We have sent a sample to be assayed. The ore we had run a week  ago, which went 6j�� % copper, was  not as good as that now being taken  from the mine. Mr. Cole has now  drifted on this ore chute 25 feet, and  it has been .getting better all the way.  In the face there is a foot of fine ore  like the samples and the quartz is  giving way to ore as the drift advances.  There is more or less ore all through  the entire face of the drift." Mr  Martin will be pleased to have all who  are interested call at his office and inspect the samples.  E. E. Campbell Receives Promotion  E. E.

His many friends will be pleased  to learn of Mr. Campbell's important  appointment.

THIEVES OPERATE  THROUGH STORM  Get  Away   With   Suits and  Shoes  During the severe electric storm on  Tuesday evening the store of P. W.  George was entered by thieves who  carried off four suits of clothes and a  supply of shoes. Entrance had been  gained by breaking a rear window and  the burelary was committed before 11  D-m.���'. One suit was taken from the  large window in the front of the store  where a light was burning. '  The same night Birnie's hardware  store was entered. :,As nothing in par^  ttcular is missing it is thought the burgr  lars were endeavoring to get into  Brown's clothing store, immediately  above the hardware.  Sneak thieves have been operating  very successfully in Phoenix during the  past two weeks, the store-house of the  Hunter-Kendrick company having been  entered, and no less than a dozen  clothes lines have been stripped. Although the local police have secured  several clues, no arrests have been  made. It is believed the thieves have  decamped.  Alberta Locators  Lot* '-., '  Some weeks ago, the Pioneer commented on certain Calgary lots being  offered for sale without a satisfactory  title being furnished. The Pioneer  wishes .to state, in fairness to the Alberta Locators, that the article in question had no reference to the lots which  they were selling. The Alberta Locators, on the contrary, appear to be a  highly reliable firm and are offering  lots with titles clear and satisfactory.

Copper..  ADJOURNMENT OF  FORECLOSURE SALE  Of Dominion Copper Requested  by Protective Committee  (U. 8. Investor. N. Y )  That there will be no Untermeyeri-  zation of Dominion Copper appears to  be a matter ol doubt. The sale of the  property under foreclosure on account  ot default on the $800,000 on bonds  outstanding was to have occurred on  Friday. An effort was made to have  it adjourned, however, on account of  representations made by local attorneys  for the Protective Committee, to the  effect that if given a very small amount  of additional time they will have en  listed the support of practically all of  the shareholders and a large proportion  of bondholders, and that they will  hence be in a position to bid on the  property, and both creditors and security holders will be greatly benefitted  thereby.  It is understood that the Protective  'Committee of Dominion Copper bond  and shareholders through local counsel  retained in Vancouver, British Columbia, have presented a strong case in  their request for an adjournment of the  sale.  A very large propoition *of all the  outstanding stock of the company has  been deposited under the Protective  Committee's plan with the agreement  to pay an assessment of $1 per share,  and a considerable amount of the  bonds of the company have also been  deposited with the Protective Committee. In view of these facts it is  unders'ood that, if a sale has taken  place, before confirmation of this sale  an injunction and appeal will be asked  for, in view of the fact that the purchase of the property by the Protective  Committee, which would be possible  in a comparatively short time, would  be to the best interest of all security  holders and creditors of the company.  The deposits of both bonds and  stock under the announced plan of the  Dominion Copper Protective Committee have exceeded the expectations  of all the friends of the plan, and have  dismayed the managers of the rival  Reorganization Committee.  During the past week or ten days,  both in the office of the Protective  Committee and at the Empire Trust  Co., the designated depository, there  has literally and actually been an avalanche of deposits. The issuing of  regular receipts had to be abandoned  and temporary receipts issued instead.  The Trust Company is now several  days behind in issuing receipts and it  is, of course, impossible to approximately estimate the amount of deposits  which have been received.  The Protective Committee originally  had the  CO-OPERATION OK 300,000 SHARES  out of a total of 500,000 shares of  stock outstanding, and it is known that  over 100,000 shares of stock, which  had not heretofore co-operated with the  Protective Committee have come in  since the announcement of the Protective Committee plan. Of the $800,-  000 of hond9 outstanding the deposit  of $500,000 was claimed by the Reorganization Committee. It is under-  stcod that the Protective Committee  has on deposit about $200,000 of the  bonds and that this amount will be  largely increased, when the final figures  can be made, there is no question, on  account of the large number of orders  received by the committee from bond-  | holders who have heretofore" deposited  I their stock with the Reorganization  Committee, authorizing the recall of  their bonds from that committee in  order that they may be deposited with  the Protective Committee.  It appears that the Protective Committee's plan, which was most unique  in its general idea of reinstatement of  all security holders upon an eminently  equitable basis, has aroused the most  enthusiastic cooperation of stcunty  holders, ana that the disinterested investors in Dominion Copper, who had  in desperation and on their belief that  the plan of the Reorganization Committee was the only one available, deposited their securities with the latter  body, are to a very large extent  NOW DEMANDING THE RETURN  of their securities from the Hayden,  Stone & Co. committee in order to deposit them with the Protective Committee.  There, of course, has been considerable hesitation 1 n their part because  of the statement of the Reorganization  Committee, that it had on-deposit a  majority of the bonds and would buy  in the property in any event, and that  the people who did not co operate with  them would simply be left out in the  cold. When it is generally known  what the amount of deposits of the  Protective Committee are, and that  this committee has received deposits  and pledges of several hundred thousand dollars in cash, and that there is  every likelihood that this committee  will be the final purchaser of the property, it is (j;enerally believed that theie  will be a stampede on the part of security holders who have deposited  their bonds and stock wiih the Reorganization Committee.  Oraid Porks Flooded  The heavy rains of the past week  caused such a flow in the Kettle river  as to overrun its banks, and much  property in Grand Forks city is under  water. The'water in the river is higher  than it has been for many years.  CONSIDER REMOVAL!  OF PUBLIC SCHCi)L  Granby Co. Gives Three) Lots  The present location of Phoenix  public school is so close to:one oftthe  ore crushers of the Granby mihes,;that  the noise from the crusher has greatly  interfered with the worlc qf(- the  teachers. The increased,, attendance  of pupils has also made the enlargement of the building a matter qf^ immediate necessity.:,'^;- ;:'.< ���- '*4   ���':'<ii\':'f-"'  In response to communications with  the government re the removal of the  school building to a more suitable  location in the city, Inspector of Nelson represented the educational department at a joint meeting of the city  council and school board on Tuesday  evening.  O. B. t Smith, superintendent of  Granby mines, who was present to  represent the company, was voted  chairman of the meeting.  The conditions requiring the removal of the school building, together  with the plans for enlargement and  probable cost, were dealt with in detail.  Mr. Smith, for the Granby company,  offered to give three lots on Victoria,  avenue for the location of tbe school  and grounds. The school board considered this offer a highly satisfactory  one. The total estimated cost for  removal and enlarging of the school  will be some $5,000.  Inspector Deane was furnished with  several views showing the proximity of  the present school to the crusher and  other details of the proposed change  and will lay the matter, before the  educational department. :',  Local Option League  Daniel   Spencer,   superintendent of  the Local   Option   League   of British  Columbia, gave an open   air   address -  from the Methodist  church   platform  on Thursday evening.   Mr. Spencer is  touring the province for the purpose of  arousing interest for the  local'-., option  cause and organizes leagues at each of  the   important   points.      At   present  there   is   no   law  on   the   provincial  statutes providing for the   taking  of a  local option vote, and  the   objects,of  the local option  league are   to secure  such legislation,   and  Put   same,int0  effect when obtained.

We  camped out every night except one.  There are pleasanter things than camping out along the Cariboo road in  March, with the thermometer near  zero.  Quesnel is a divisional point for such  places as Bakerville, and the Nechaco.  It was also the divisional point for bur  load, as we had to leave the greater  part of it,in care ofthe Hudson's Bay  company. We had yet 160 miles to  go.     We   were  given   the comforting  easy/nor a  The wrecks of old wag-  one   or   two   places   the  time of the year with a load is not an  easy one. It is especially hard during  the spring months, when the roads are  good for neither sleigh or wagon, and  no feed along the way. The writer,  accompanied by his wifr, left Ashcroft  en route on March 3. It took us 32  days of hard travelling to make Fraser  lake, 380 miles from Ashcroft. We  shall not soon forget some of the experiences. A short account may prove  instructive to readers and profitable to  some intending settlers.  The first thing of importance for  such a journey is the selection of a  team of horses. The long hills, steep  pitches and mud holes will wear out  any team that is not of the best. Here  we made our first mistake. We had a  good team, but not one suitable for  such a long journey. They were n( t  well matched. One horse, high-strung,  pulled three-quarters of the load the  first half of the way. The other horse,  slow and easy going, pulled nearly all  the load and the other horse the latter  part of the way, for we had to finish  the trip with one horse. A team that  can be depended upon to pull steadily  all that they are able, and at tunes a  little morr,is an absolute necessity.  We have several nerve-racking memories of getting stuck on pitches none  too wide, with a precipice on the lower  side. Having to unload or ba'ck^do\yn  such a grade is not an  pleasant job  ons and in  bleached bontjs of horses did not tend  to soothe bur nerves.  Again, every wagon for the Cariboo  road should be fitted with brake and  chock block. Of course, one can tie a  wheel going down a steep hill, but it is  a nuisance. And there are long  grades, where a brake is a great help  to the horses. Going up the steep hill  it; means a great deal of work to keep  a block always at hand���our narrowest  escape from disaster on the whole trip  was in not having such a block that  would work automatically.  As regards the load, only what is  absolutely necessary should be taken.  If the settler does not leave unnecessary things at home he is certain to  leave them by the way. For the average learn, unused to such work, a ton  is-load enough as far as Quesnel. Any  weight is too much from Quesnel to  Fraser lake, T,he writer is aware of  the fact that the freighteis take an  average of two ions per team from  Ashcroft to Quesnel. But they have  things down to a science. They have  excellent horses, used to the work.  They always use a double wagon with  four or six horses on the long hills and  bad roads; they drop one wagon and  put all their horses on the other. Thty  have everything fitted up for safety and  convenience.  Vrobably most settlers plan to camp  out along the way, as it comes rather  high to stop a', the roadhouses At  any rate during the trip from Quesnel  to Fraser lake he will have to camp  out whether he plans it or not, as  there  are   no    madhouses.

It was fit neither for a wagon  or sleigh. However, we started with  both.  Fortunately, coming in with the  sleigh we found the lakes in excellent  condition. They gave us 35 miles of  splendid sleighing. The rest of the  .ourney was made over good, bad and  indifferent roads���one day making 20  miles and the next only two. We completed the trip from Quesnel to Fraser  lake in fifteen days.  The first impressions of the Nechaco  are disappointing���extremely so if one  has read and believed half what has  been written by land speculators. A  large part of the country is mountainous and hilly. Large stretches of  the level land are covered with a heavy-  growth of jack pine and poplar���  which, to say the least, is not easy to  clear. The open areas are practically  all taken up and held vacant by the  speculator, the greatest drawback to  the country. They have greatly misrepresented the country. The climate  is not a part of an earthly paradise.  There are several degrees of frost every  night. This is April 26 and not an  unusually late spring.  Living is so high as to almost prohibit the settler bringing in his family.  Compare these prices with those obtaining outside: Flour, $7 per sack,  sugar, 20c. pound, potatoes, 4c, butter  75c, oats 6c, etc. The smaller things  are ever higher comparatively. These,  prices are not excessive as the transportation rates make them necessary.  Nor can one depend on game to keep  the cupboard full. Of large game  there is practically none. Ducks,  geese and grouse are fairly plentiful,  but are very wild on account of being  hunted at all times by the Indians.  Fish are said to be plentiful during  certain seasons.  And worst of all, land is scarce. It  might almost be said there is none to  be had. After what is held by the  land speculators, the residents and the  mountains, very little is left and that  little is back from the: beaten trails and  lakes. However, with the aid of an  old resident and a location fee, some  fairly good quarter sections can still be  found. Some one is sure to ask:  "What about those large pre-emption  reserves for the pre-empter?" A conservative estimate would be that not  more than 2% of the land reserved by  the government will ever be settled.  At least half of that is already taken  up. The 98% is mountainous. The  reserves could not have been put on  in worse places. The foregoing is a  statement of facts not given in any  knocking spirit, but largely for the information of the :n-( nding settler.  On the other hand a great deal could  be said in favor of the country. The  soil is good���there is no better in  Canada. It is capable of producing  enormous crops.- The long days in the  summer make up for the shortness of  it. The growth is very rapid. Fruit  has never been tried, but if it proves a  good fruit country land will be valuable. In fact it needs only a railway  and a market to make the Nechaco a  prosperous, if not indeed, a wealthy  country. For the one our hopes lie  in the Grand Trunk Pacific��� for the  other we look to Prince Rupert.  MAY COPPER SALES  ,  EXCEED PRODUCTION  Bright Prospects For Advancing  Market  Sales of copper for the month of  May are reported from New York to  he greater than those of any month  during the past two years. Based  upon' figures for the first half of May  it is estimated that the month's sales  will total 125,000,000 pounds. If that  prove correct May sales will be considerably in excess of the month's production. The production for last month  (April) was 113,574,292 pounds with  deliveries of 112,656,121 pounds', a  production excess of about one million  pounds. With May sales running  ahead of production, surplus stocks  will be called upon to make good the  deficiency���which may be interpreted  as auguring favorably for the future of  the copper metal market.

Buster's Philosophy.���  Resolved, that I want to beg parents  not to beat their children���because it  hurts parents worse than it does the  children. Yes it does, because when  parents lose their tempers and get angry  it makes them sick and it poisons their  systems. If you forgive the little fellow  you will teach him, how to forgive.  Anybody can be.brutal but only great  and good people can forgive. Love  begets love. If you love your child he  will love you. When people strike  their children they are cowards. Well,  thank goodness, the world is growing  better, people are learning the power  of love. If I ever beat anything it  wont be a child, I will beat the band.
