Yesterday morning at ten o'clock a  branch was opened in Phoenix.of one  of the oldest financial institutions in the  Dominion of Canada���the Eastern  Townships Hank. The day before the  manager, William Spier, wife and child,  and his assistant, A. S. McCaw, arrived and registered ��� at the Victoria.  Mr. Spier comes from ' the branch at  Omistown, Quebec, of which he was | part  in charge, while Mr. McCaw has been  for some months in the Grand Forks  branch. ''  Only three banking institutions in  Canada antedate the Eastern Townships in securing charters, these being  the Montreal, Quebec and Bank of  B. N. A. The Eastern Townships is  therefore among the oldest, having  been established in 1859. Up to a  short time ago this' bank confined its  operations to that portion of the province of Quebec, known as the. Eastern  Townships,������ whence comes the name.  Altogether it now has 14 branches, 'as  follows: Head office Sherbrooke,  Waterloo, Stimstead, Cowanville, Coat-  icook, Richmond, Granby, Bedford,  Magog, St. Hyacinthe, and Huntingdon, all in Quebec, and at'Grand  Forks and Phoenix, B. C.  The Bank has a capital of $1,500,-  o'oo, which will*shortly be increased  to $2,000,000, has a reserve fund of  $900,000, and its total assets amount  to nearly $9,060,000.

OLD MAIDS IN THEIR QLORV.  Concert and Fared at Miners' Union Hall a  -.Success;' .  Thursday evening nearly everybody  in Phoenix, with their sisters and their  cousins and their aunts, wereat Miners'  Union hall to witness and hear .the  concert'and farce, given by the Ladies  Aid.Societyof the Presbyterian church.  The hall was crowded, and for nearly  two.hours and a half they were entertained. The program, as published  in full in last week'ii Pioneer, \\\\as  carried outj to the amusement and  edification o( the audience. The "first  part of the program consisted of a concert and recitations, in. which Geo; S.  McKenzie, Mrs. J; E.Mills, 'Miss  Ashley, Miss Aldrich,; J. F. ^Hemen-  way, Tj L. Buckton, A. P.

Prof. Pinkerton madesome wonderful  metamorphoses, on his electrical transformer, of the curiously gotten up old  maids, to make them' more marringe-  able. It was a comical affair and was  well carried out, but should have been  made shorter. .The accompanists were  Mrs. Crowell and Miss Aldrich; .  The ladies deserve Rmch credit for  the successful outcome of the first  efforts in this line," for which tliey were  working hard for. several weeks. Those  taking part in the convention were:  Mesdames Mills, Lee, Crane, Delahay,  Macy, Cox, Cramer, Crowell, McLaren  and Walters, and the Misses Ashley,  Punch, Tatham, Sexton, Barger, Wal-  ers, Crawford and; Aldrich, with Geo.

The bank infthoenix is located on  First street, near Old Ironsides avenue,  in a building erected  specially  for  it.  Study of Rossland Rldin; Returns.  A study of the election returns from  Rossland riding, reveals some interesting data. Of the ten polling stations,  but three gave Mackintosh a majority,  Midway, ! Columbia and Trail. Although about 4,000 voters were registered, the total number of ballots  counted was 2,610. Rossland was  expected to contribute about half of  these, but actually had only 1163.  Grand Forks, notwithstanding its ante-  election claims, was tar behind Greenwood, the former having 271 votes,  the latter 443. There were live towns  in the riding that had a smaller vote  than Phoenix, which had i6fi���not  so bad for a place not a year old.  Slow Mall Servici.  Since the Boundary trains began  coming into Greenwood at 10:30 p.m.  last Monday, we have been receiving  all mail matter nearly a day later than  heretofore. That is, instead of being  an improvement in the mail service, it  is decidedly worse than it was. The  Rossland and Nelson mail does not  reach Phoenix till the second day,  and the Spokane mail' till the third  day. Our business men do not appreciate this deterioration of the services  and are hoping that the C. P. R. will  shortly give us train service direct to  Phoenix.  War Eagle Has SOD Feet.  TCarly this week a Pioneer man  visited the War Eagle, and was shown  through the workings of the property  by the resident manager, Clifford G.  Buck. Drilling has been in progress  for some rime from the main shalt at  the 100-foot level. The east drift is  now in 125 feet and the west drilt 1S0  feet, with 50 leet in other small drifts.  This work, with that done on the  surface aggregates over 500 feet of  development done thus far on the  property. At present the compressoi  ���being half of a 10-diill Rand machine���is operating two drills, and ihe  average daily progress is nine feet.  Additional  Snowshoe Plant.  The British Columbia (Rossland and  Sloran) Syndicate, Ltd., owning the  Snowshoe, of which A. J. McMillan isi  the managing director, have let a con-|  tract to the jenckes Machine Co., of  Sherbrooke, Que., for additional machinery. It consists of a 70 li. p.  boiler, a % Little Giant drill, a duplex  No. 3-2-3-pump, 1500 feet of pipe,  new air receiver, etc. The order was  given this week to R. P. Williams, the  resident agent of the company at Greenwood .  The tunnel, on the Snowslv-.e running under the railway trac's ������: now  in 240 feet, and is still in o, j'oie-  inan Trevorrow intends to work itwitft  j air as soon  i arrives.  Every drice in a"while a ' party ;of  C.'P. R. officials make a tour 'of inspection to the Boundary;; The great  Canadian corporation requires so many  officials to care for its diverse interests  that a goodly number could; come in  every week for a year , or twoi each  being of a different personnel. They  all seem to like to visit the Boundary,  however, and they cannot be blamed  for that, for, whether major or minor  in point of importance, they wish to ,  take a squint at the rich country  oi>ened up by the new Boundary railway.       -  This week a party came into the  Boundary and took a little longer time  than usual to visit a,number of camps  .and inspect .the' mines. . It,, consisted  of both railway and smelter officials,,  the latter Irdm Trail, where the big  reduction works are located; The  party included Chief Engineer of Construction ..Ay";MY Tye, ,of Winnipeg;  John G. Sullivan, Trail, engineer of  construction for the Kobtenays; W. H;  .Aldridge, manager of the Trail smelter;  I). AAV".Moprej-Trail, ore buyer for the  smelter; Captain J; AV. Troup, Nelson,  superintendentof Kobtenay rail and  steamer lines; F. W. Peters, Nelson,  assistant general freight agent.  Monday afternoon the 'party;'left  Rossland on the regular passenger, and  stopped oyer night.'in Grand Forks,  an<T visited the Grar.by smelter, which  will be receiving ore in. a few days.  Tuesday morning they came iip to the  B.C. mine in Summit ''camp. In the  afternoon, the car was brought up the  Phoenix spur to the station in'Phoeni.x.  The \A*inni|)eg, Golden Crown, Snow-  shoe, Old Ironsides and 'Knob Hill  properties were visited, and the gentlemen drove down-��� to:'Greenwood > that  night, and later took in the 'Mother  Lode and other properties tributary to  that town.  as   the   new  machinery 1  Smelter Officials in Phoenix.  AArm. H. Aldridge, general manager  of the Trail smelter, and David AV.  Moore, ore buyer'lor the same concern,  who came into the Boundary with the  C. P. R. officials last Tuesday, were  visiting the shipping mines of this section. Thursday the two gentlemen  drove back to Phoenix, for the purpose  of inspecting and securing samples from  the Brooklyn, Stemwiuder, etc.,. and  also drove out as far as the Golden  Crown. AA'h'en asked by a Pioneer  representative if bis smelter was receiving much ore from the Boundary, Mr.  Aldridge said:  "Yes; we are beginning to get regular  shipments from this section now.  On an average we are receiving about  six cars daily from Boundary mines,  and we expect this to gradually increase. We shall have no trouble in  furnishing all the ore cars that may be  needed. We are looking over the  mines of the district for the purpose of  familiarizing ourselves with the  character of the ores in the different  properties, from which we expect to  receive large shipments in the near  luture."  Threatening Brush Fires.  Last AA'ednesday fire was started on  the west end of the Old Ironsides  townsite, and spread so rapidly in the  underbrush that a force of men was  called out from the mine to stop its  progress. The house of A. S. Will-  iansou and the Eastern Townships  Bank building had a narrow escape,  and were only saved by prompt action.  Thursday it was started again, and  once more Foreman Dermody with 25  or 30 men Ironi the Old Ironsides  came to the rescue. No damage was  done with the exception ol a small  shanty owned by L. C.

This is much to he regretted for obvious  leasons, but it is nevertheless a condition that confronts us,  rather   than  a  theory.    The premier has a  few   supporters, but not nearly enough to   enable him to have a working  majority  when the house meets.    Undoubtedly,  lie will endeavor to so arrange matters  by July 5th that lie can count a  suffi-  tient number of noses to the light ol  the speaker to carry on business.    No  one can give Mr. Martin   pointers  in  politics, and  he will  die hard, if he  dies at all.  On the other hand, it is claimed by  his friends that James Herbert Turner,  who also has a number of supporters,  can secure enough more to form a government, should lie be called  upon,  ivlr. Turner has had a wide experience  already as  premier of the province,  and should he be successful in getting  into power, would give the electois of  the province  better satisfaction  than  they have had since he was dismissed  two years ago by the present lieutenant-governor.    It does not seem likely  ���'  that Mr. Mclnnes, alter  turning  Mr.  Turner   out   once,   will call on him  again,  though 'queerer   things   have  happened.  -The fact is,  that no party has a  majority.    Each party is figuring  on  holding out sufficient inducements to  the   independent,   labor   and   other  ��� members chosen,-who are not allied to  ���Turner ism orMartinism,  to hold  the |  'key to the  situation.   Just  how  far  Vlhey wilf be successlul in this,  still re-  , mains to be seen, hut they will  leave  no stoqe unturned to secure that greatly  to be desired and  most  needful  t ,       ,  majority. ' It is indeed unfortunate  that this condition prevails, lor we  have had enough of the unstable sort  of government of late to last for several  decades.  been  A  number of   candidates  minus their deposits.  The    "I-told-you-so's"   have  much in evidence this last week.  The candidates ran so evenly that  there was not much betting done in  this locality.  Charles AVilson and Francis L. Carter-Cotton, two of the |x>litical leaders,  were turned down hard.  There were 91 candidates in the  field tluoughout the province, for the  38 seats in the legislatuie.  Just 164 voters were registered from  Phoenix, and i'66 were polled, of which  three were spoiled ballots.  It is noticeable that every candidate  endorsed by labor unions in the late  election contest, was elected.  It'is freely admitted that Mr. Mackintosh ran well in Phoenix, and received more votes than either side anticipated.  John Houston almost iiad a walkover in Nelson riding, while Bob  Green, in the Slocan also had it all his  own way.   ���  Phoenix polled the third largest  number of voters of .any town in the  Boundary ��� only' (Greenwood and  Grand Forks having a greater number.  The defeated candidates are now-  busy explaining how it happened. One  explanation will do for all���the other  man got more votes.���Rossland Record.  Candidate Yates, a member of the  Martin cabinet,- received but 86 votes  in Nanaimo City, out of over 800.  His successful opponent was Ralph  Smith, the well known labor leader.  It is estimated that Mr.-Turner will  have 14 sup]>orters, Mr. "Martin 8,  Provincial party 7 .(including tKalph  Smith and Murphy), and straight conservatives 6.

A dispatch from Rossland says:  liefore its second 40-drill compressor  has all arrived from Sherbrooke, the  Le Roi Mining Co. is calling for tenders for a third compressor of the same  capacity, which will be needed as soon  as the contract can be let and the  machine built and installed. ;  There are now in use one 40-drill  and one 12-drill compressor, and the  second 40-drill machine is now on the  ground and being installed. ' Two  car loads have not arrived, but as they  include the part which we needed last,  they will not delay the work of installation. When the new compressor is  in operation the capacity will be for  92-drills, but it is proi>osed to then lay  off the 12-drilI machine, except -in'  emergencies, on account of the high  cost of operating it compared with the  larger machines. ������This, will leave 80-  drills which will about operate the Le  Roi mine to its full capacity when the  new hoist is in operation, and at the  same time to carry on the development  of the Josie, No. 1 and Nickel Plate.  It will not be very long before all three  mines are sufficiently developed to  warrant their beginning to produce  ore; in fact, they could produce now  if they had the proper railroad connections. Additional power for drills will  then be needed in the stojies of the  three mines. Forty more drills will  not do any too much, if the Le Roi is  to be kept up to its producing capacity,  and a safe reserve of power is to be  provided. The II. G. A. mines will  then have compressors for 120 drills,  leaving out of consideration the 12-  drill machine, which will be held in  reserve.  The new machine will give the B. A.  C. the largest air compressing plant in  Canada, and there will be fewlargerin  the United States.  Mines are Made.  Rich ore at the bottom of a shaft  does not constitute a large producing  mine, says an exchange. Only three.  or four men can work at the bottom of  a shaft. A mine must have drifts and  stopes, cross-cuts and levels, furnishing  openings to permit the employment of  a large body of men. These excavations cost money. It costs money to  erect a plant. Mines are made, not  found.  Ai  I.I, persons, old anil young, should linre  tlielr teeth examined once every six mouths  by a competent dentist.

A tooth filled- when decay is in sight will not be  sensitive, the operation not long, and the filling  lasting, liecause the operation has more and  better structure to work ou.
