We want you to try this Butter ; there  is nothing finer comes to town, no  matter what the price.  Official instructions were received  on Saturday from the head office of  the Dominion Copper company in  New York to prepare their mines and  smelter for .resuming operations on  June 15th.  "'Although this information has been  expected for some weeks it is none  the less welcome in Phoenix now that  it has been officially announced, the  mines of the . Dominion Copper company being the second most" important  copper' producers in this camp.  The announcement also states that  a party of officials, probably Warner  Miller, the new president of the com-,  pany, Vice-President Melville, and M.  ��� MI'Johnson, consulting engineer.Jwould  Teach; Phoenix about June ioth to have  a look through the mines and smelter  before the resumption. AH financial  responsibilities of the company have  been satisfactorily settled, the semi  annual interest on the $800,000 of 6%  per cent bonds having been paid on  Monday, and it is believed the Dominion Copper company was never on a  better financial basis than it is to-day.  There should be but little delay   in  getting started to work after the 15th.  The compressor, hoists and all machin-'shipments for a  ery about the mines are in good shape,  though considerable general cleaning  up will   be  required   before  shipping  commences.     Superintendent   Rund-  berg states,  however,  that the mines  would probably /.be shipping in about  a week  after resuming  and with'a a  very'short time  would be running at  full capacity.    At the smelter at Boun:  dary  Falls   there,'is sufficient fuel to  last for a  month   and about a week':.  long time to come.  The ore is hoisted through a  350-foot shaft from this mine and sent  over the C.P.R.  ", The.Idaho mine has been extensively  opened up by tunnels and open cast or  glory hole work, making the breaking  down of ore an easy and economical  matter. The mine is served by a spur  from the Great Northern, which connects with the C.P. R. about eight  miles, distant, and  it is expected   that  supply of ore in the bins, so that the J larger tonnages will be shipped from  furnaces, which are in readiness, can ; this mine than have been in the past,  be blown in shortlyiafter the 15th. ._ .i- -The-Iargest producer oTtrieIJoTnih-  It would now appear that* Phoenix ion Copper Co. is the Rawhide mine,  is on the eve of the. .revival of its for-.which, like many others in the Boun-  mer general actLvityii--When operating ^daryv-is^-a veritable mountain'of low  at normal capacity the Dominion Cop- grade ore.

Last year the C.  heart of the camp, while the Rawhide j P.R, constructed additional trackage  is about half a mile distant, adjoining facilities for the Rawhide at a cost of  the Snowshoe and  Gold Drop  mines,  some $20,000.  Altogether the Brooklyn mine has sent j The Sunset, in Deadwood camp, and  out close to 300,000 tons of ore since the Mountain Rose Summit camp, are  shipments started first, and there is smaller mines owned by the same coin-  reason to believe that it can  maintain-pany which will also resume operations.  Boundary Mining Notes  Strawberries   Tomatoes  Green Onions   Lettuce  New Cabbage    Spinach  (0.,  ===���Qrocers and Hardware  About 250 men are now working at  Mother Lode.  The Mother Lode is now shipping  900 tons daily to the smelter at  Greenwood.  Next Wednesday will be the payday  at the Boundary mines and should be  the best for several months.  A party of mining men from New  York and Boston are expected to visit  Boundary mines in a few days.  The shipments of ore from the Oro  Denoro during, the past two weeks  were much in excess of any weekly  tonnages last year.  At the Brooklyn mine of the Dominion Copper Co. new trackage has  been laid to the big cave-in which will  be used as a dump for waste in future.  The B.C. Copper company's smelter is now treating nearly 2,000 tons  of ore daily. The first furnace was  blown in on Sunday and the other two  on Monday. The convertors were  started on Tuesday and shipments of  blister copper will commence in the  course of ten days.  The plant at the Tip Top mine, in  Skylark camp, has been moved further up the property and work has been  started on the new big copper surface  showing, which is said to be the richest of any working mine in the country.  The lead where the work is now being  started is eight feet in width, and the  lowest assay gives it $42 to the ton in  copper besides good values in gold and  silver. The lead has been traced  without a break and at its lower end  a shaft has been sunk for 150 feet on  the lead.  .The shipments of ore from Granby  mines, Phoenix, for the month of May  totalled 93,316 tons, and with the  exception of last March was the biggest  monthly tonnage ever sent out from  the mines. In March all the furnaces  at the smelter, were running at full  capacity, while during May two furnaces were out of commission for a considerable length of time, in connection  with the improvements now going on  there, and less ore was consumed.  The shipments for the first five months  of 1908 total 294,3'7 tons, showing a  big increase over the same months last  year. The shipments for the first five  months of 1907 were 206,073 tons-  FAREWELL TO REV.        \  MR^ WHITTAKER'  kindness would not soon be forgotten,  During the evening several gifts o!  money were also made to  Mr. Whit-   "���'.��� j taker.  Presented With Locket by Local j     Rev.   Mr.   Whittaker preached   his  T O O F   T r\Acrt> I ^arewe"   sermon   in    the    Methodist  l.KJ.\J.r.  i-ooge. ! church   on Sunday evening.    During  The Ladies' Aid of the Methodist j his three year's pastorate of the cougre-  chufch held a farewell social in the j gation he has taken a foremost place  church on Monday .evening for  Rev. j in the religious and intellectual life of  C. Wellesley Whittaker, the retiring  pastor, who left on Tuesday for Vancouver, where he will be assistant  pastor in Mt. Pleasant church. A  large number of his friends in town  availed themselves of the opportunity  of calling and saying good-bye.  Refreshments were served and Rev.  F. J. Rutherford, pastor of Greenwood  Methodist church, presided over a  short program. Francis Knott, treasurer of the churcli, made a pleasing  address and reviewed in brief the progress of the church during the last  three years. When Rev. Mr. Whittaker assumed charge, he said, the  church was entirely dependent upon  the missionary society for its support.  This year it had been able, notwithstanding the depression in labor circles,  to pay all its own expenses, including  the pastor's salary; the congregations  have increased largely, and progress  has been made along all lines. Mr.  Knott eulogized the ability and resourcefulness of the retiring pastor, regretting his leaving; and in saying  good-bye, on behalf of the congregation, coupled with it thc wiah that he  may be found even more useful in his  new sphere of labor.  During the evening the members of  Snowshoe Lodge, No. 46, I.O.O.F..  who were in session, in their hall,  visited the church in a body and presented Mr. Whittaker, who had been  an active member of the lodge, with a  gold locket, beautifully engraved and  bearing the three-link emblem of the  Oddfellow order. The presentation  was made by M. M. Stephens, who in  a neat speech voiced the members of  the lodge, in expressing the loss the  lodge will sustain in Mr. Whittaker's  departure, and asked him to accept the  locket as a slight remembrance of Odd-  fellowship in Phoenix, feeling assured  that in going to Vancouver and visiting  sister lodges he will do credit to his  mother lodge. Mr. Whittaker replied  in a few well-chosen words, thanking  the brethren for their kindness, which  was entirely unexpected. He had enjoyed his association with Snowshoe  Lodge,  and this expression  of their  Phoenix, and combined religious fervor  and zeal with good business ability.  His removal is a distinct loss to the  religious life of the town, and he  carries with him the esteem and re  spect of the people of Phoenix.  CARNEY COPPER  SHOWING UP WELL  J. L. Martin Returns from Trip  ot Inspection.  J. L. Martin, president of the Carney Copper company, returned late  last week from a visit to the Coeur  d'Alene country, in Idaho, where he  has valuable interests in a mining way.  While away he visited the property of  the Carney Copper company, near  Mullin, in which a large number of  men in the Boundary are interested.  Mr. Martin was very pleased with  the progress made in developing the  Carney Copper mine. In driving the  cross cut, just completed, a ledge 25  feet in width, of excellent showing was  cut through. At the point of intersection of the ledge there is no shipping ore, but drifting had started along  the foot-wnll for the ore shute when he  he left. Mr. Martin is quite enthusiastic as to the future of the Carney  Copper property, and believes it will  be n b'g shipper in time. No other  mine on the continent, he says, is more  admiiably suited for shipping purposes, with excellent tunnel sites, and  every opportunity to get the ore out at  low operating costs.

In an editorial referring to the tour  of Premier McBride and his colleagues,-  the Colonist says:   ���'  "But there is an aspect to this tour  which is possibly even "afore* satisfac  tory than this, and it is the derhonstra-  <200 j tion afforded that we have reached, as  i.��51 far as local politics are concerned, an  *r'5�� lend of a Ion/? period of political unrest  and partizan bitterness^ There 'were  very many people, who questioned the  desirability of dividing provincial politics on federal lines, and it cannot be  successfully denied that there ' were  some reasons against such a step,  which were fully threshed out at the  time. When Mr. McBride announced  his, intention to form, a ministry on  straight t Conservative lines, there was  undoubtedly a strong protest-from  many quarters, but that it was a wise  step subsequent events have fully demonstrated. It gave us settled political conditions, and only those who  are able to recall the state of politics  in this province less than a decade ago  can appreciate what it means. The  effect upon, the business of the province, we mean now not the public but  the private business;1-has been very  pronounced, for there is no doubt that  the country was greatly injured by the  continual reports thot went out concerning the chaotic statt: of politics  and the resultant unfortunate condition of the public tieasury.  It is pleasing to note the hearty reception, that have been given Premier  McBride and his colleages,   Hon. W.  J. Bowser, K.C., attorney general, and I     ><As the person who, more than any  Hon.

The resuming of  the Brooklyn-Idaho and Rawhide mines  will give employment to upwards of  200 men in the camp, and should assist not a little in setting-in motion the  big wheels, of general prosperity in the  town.

Evidence  in the mounds of Ohio point to the  fact that the early mound builders  knew of the existence of the, Lake  Superior copper deposits and mined  them to a certain extent.  Mining proper on the peninsula began about 1845, with the development  of cross fissures, but it was not until  some years later that the beds of  "amygdaloid" and conglomerates beating copper were found.  The Calumet lode is the only true  conglomerate.    The  other lodes   are  frequently  called   conglomerates,   but  erroneously so.    The  copper   in  the  balance of the  lodes  occurring in the  bubbles or vesicles of lava  are known  as  amygdaloid.    The   lodes   vary  in  width from 8 to   40 feet,   the  average  stopes being from j 2 to  14   feet wide.  The district is noted for its extremely  deep  shafts.    The No. 4  shaft of the  Calumet  is  4,684    feet    vertical,   or  8,100 feet on   the   dip.    In   addition  there  is  a   winze of  190   feet at  the  bottom.    On   Red  Jacket  a   vertical  shaft is 4,920 -feet deep,   and   did not  cut the lode until the 3,000-foot ma- k  was passed.     Pillars 75   feet   wide are  left each side of all shafts,   and   when  the present workings arc exhausted the  pillars will  give a product tqud to 20  per cent   of all   previous   production.  Ore is kept   blocked   out   for   cij.ht  years   ahead,   and   the   Calumet  and  Hccla   workings   aggregate   about two  hundred   miles   of shafts,  drift",  etc.  The Red Jacket shaft   is   equipped  with an 8,000 horse-power hoist, which  will lift a ten-ton   load at the   rate of  over one   hundred   blacksmiths   being  employed.

The irrigation canal at Keremeos  will cost $100,000.  A passenger automobile will run between Rossland and Trail.  A baseball league has been organized  in the towns of the lower.Okanagan.  A public school has been opened at  Olalla, and there are fourteen pupils.  Next year the C.P.R. will spend two  million dollars upon its hotel at Banff.  Two Rossland hotelkeepers were  fined for selling liquor to minors last  week.  The summer schedule of the C.P.R.  goes into effect on the main line on  June 14th.  The water in the Kootenay river is  as high as in 1894, and much snow is  yet to melt.  It is said that the hay crop in the  Agassiz district is being destroyed by  the hop flea.  The N sawmill of the Porto Rico  Lumber company at Moyie has started  on the season's cut.  Nelson is in a building boom which  will add several substantial structures  to the city's edifices.  J. H. Abbot, of Reyelstoke, fell  from a locomotive on which he was  fireman, and was killed.  About two hundred men are working on the construction of the V.V.  & E  west of Keremeos.  During the,past  year sixty  farmers  have   settled   on   land   near   Nakusp  Some of them are from Holland.  Competition in buying salmon has  caused a raise of one cent in the price  for spring salmon on the Fraser river.  There is a rate war on between  Seattle and Victoria, and the fare is  25c. on some boats between the cities.  Premier McBride has promised a  substantial sum towards the improvement of the Rossland-Trail wagon  road.  R Marpole, general executive agent  of the C.P.R. will lecture on British  Columbia while in England this  summer.  There will be a big orange demonstration in Revelstoke on July 12th.  Delegates from all over the interior of  the province will be present.  An appeal court has been established in British Columbia. The  salary of the chief justice is $7,000 per  annum, and three judges each $6,000  a year. "".���������.  One of the largest transactions in  southeast Kootenay real estate has  been completed, whereby 9,000 acres  of fruit lands in the vicinity of Elko  has changed hands.  At a recent meeting of the police  commissioners at Fernie, it was decided to close down the lid tight on  gambling in the city, and orders were  issued to that effect.  Premier McBride has bought the  handsome house on the Gorge road,  now occupied by A. T. R. Blackwood,  for a consideration to be in the neighborhood of $20,000.  The grand council of the United  Commercial Travellers, of Washington  and British Columbia will be convened  at Vancouver early next month. It is  understood that over 1000 knights of  the grip will take part.  A driver of a delivery wagon belonging to a firm in Blaine, Wash., drove  across the line and delivered a cake of  soap to a British Columbia resident.  The team was seized by customs officers and a fine of $400 assessed.  Smuggling soap costs money.  The clearing of the Fraser river of  rocks by the Dominion government  last winter has opened up that river for  navigation as far as Fort George, and  the steamer Charlotte, which has for  plied  between Soda creek and  mining  has  British Columbia  companies.  The Jumbo mine at Rossland  resumed operations.  British Columbia has produced over  100 millions in gold; six millions in  1907.  The mining population of British  Columbia is three-fourths of miners of  all Canada.  Chicago capitalists are carrying out  development on the eastern shore of  Lake Shu swap.  For the first four months of the year  the output of the Rossland mines was  100,000 tons of ore.  A special meeting of the shareholders of the Mugwump gold mining company and the Monita mining company  will be held in Rossland on June 23rd  for liquidation purposes.  A. E. Johnston, the first man to  arrive in Vancouver from the Findlay  gold diggings, states that the ground  there is very rich, much better than  was supposed. On McConnell creek  it runs from six to seven cents per pan  or $40 to $50 per day per man at the  sluicing. The flatness of the country  renders it almost impossible for a poor  man to secure any adequate water  supply, and for that reason he thinks  that large companies will get the best  results. He considers that intelligent!  prospecting on neighboring creeks will  be richly rewarded.  Eye-Spcclallsi Lnmlng.  J.'J.

MINING  Boundary  Produced   65   Per  Cent of B.C. Tonnage  j The following extract is taken from  'the annual report of the provincial  minister of mines for the year 1907:���  The value of the mineral products  of the Province for the year 1907 is  greater than that for any preceding  year, and amounts to $25,882,560,  showing ah increase over the last year  of $902,014; equivalent to an increase  of 3.6 per cent., and is greater than  the output of 1905 about 15.3 per  cent., and 36.3 per cent, greater than  that of 1904.  An analysis of the returns shows  that this increase is due to the greater  tonnage of low grade ore mine in the  Boundary district, and also to an increase tonnage from the collieries, both  ir�� coal and coke.  The market price for all the metals  was unusually high for the first part of  the yeai, but fell so low during the  last half of the year that the average  mTarket price-for 1907 was very little, if  any, higher than that of 1906.  The tonnage "of ore mined m the  Province during the year 1907, ex  elusive of coal, _was ^,804,'t 14 tons;  This total tonnage was produced by  the various districts in the following  proportions:���Boundary, 65.1 percentage of total; Rossland, 15.8;  Coast, 4.7; Fort Steele M.D., 8.6; all  other Districts, 5.8.  The number of mines from which  shipments were made in 1907 was  147; but of these only 72 shipped  more than 100 tons each during the  year.  There' were in the Province 36 mines  that shipped in excess of 1,000 tons  each during the year,' and of these 11  were in the Boundary District, '8 in the  Nelson, 6 on the coast, -5 in the Rossland, 3 in the Fort Steele M. D., 3 in  the Slocan District, and 1 in the Lard-  eau M. D.  James Moran, of Midway, a pioneer  prospector and interested in many  claims arsund this camp,, was in town  week.  J. T. Fife, general manger of the  Prudential Life Insurance company  for British Columbia, was in town for  a few days this week.  W. T. Thompson, inspector for ihe  Royal, London and Lancashire fire  insurance companies, represented by  D.J. Matheson, was here this week  inspecting risks.  Max Berger left on Thursday for  Vancouver on a business trip. He expects to return in the course of ten  days and will reopgn the steam laundry  at Greenwood.  A. F. Wakefield, representing the  B.

McMorris of the Daily News,  Nelson, was in town on Thursday a-:d  was shown through the mines of the  great Boundary mining camp. This  was Mi. McMorris's..first visit- to Phoenix and he was" pleased to note the  general activity prevailing which distinguished it from many other interior  cities he had visited.  but seldom has there been  a  more brilliant assembly   of Boundary  dancers than that which graced  it last  Friday evening and   tripped   the light  fantastic well on to the  small hours of  the morning.    The merry  minuet, the  dreamy waltz, the  rolicking   two-step,  and   the hurry-up  quadrille followed  each other in rapid succession till mid  night, when an excellent luncheon was  served.  After lunch dancing was again  resumed, and there was no let-up until |  ihe last note of "Home Sweet Home"  was played by/< he-orchestra:  The function was gotten up by bach  elors and benedicts in aid of tlv* I'lioenix hospital, and the popularity of.the.  institution was shown in the prescner  of some 125 couples, including many  from Greenwood, Grand Forks and  Eholt. The matron and nurses of the  hospital attended in uniform. :  The music was furnished by the  Greenwood orchestra of twelve pieces  and was the subject of many complimentary remarks by the dancers, who  signified their appreciation with repeated encores. And too much praise  cannot be given this band, including so  many different instruments, for the  excellent quality of music rendered, as  organization, of which Or,.,  well feel pruud.
