Array i  Boundary Mines Produced $17,500,000 in  value within six years.  ^      JUN 19 1906  i    Legislative Library    it-05      *  and   Leading  Mining  Gamp of Boundary*  BOUNDARY   MINING JOURNAL.  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary Mining District  Vol. VII.  PHOENIX,   BRITISH COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, JUNE 16,  .906.  No.  31.  ^Ywwwnaw^aaiBteB^^jajteJH^^y^  New summer  Z  ��  $225,000 BOND FOR OVER TWENTY PHOENIX CAMP CLAIMS  J. L. Martin, of this   city,   has just  closed negotiations for  what promises  to result in the  largest  single   mining  deal ever transacted   in the Boundary  country, so far as number of claims is  concerned.     While the consideration  to be turned over is not stated, it is understood to be in the neighborhood of  $225,000, the whole of which is to be  paid   within   six   months' time.    The  property is that   included   in   what   is  known as the Marshall, lhe Monte and  Forty   groups  of   mineral claims, adjoining   the   Granby   and    Dominion  groups of properties on the north side  of the city.  Some twenty odd claims are included in the bond, making Over 700 acres  of mineralized territory. Tbe deal  was made with G. B. Dennis, of Spokane,   on    behalf of   himself   and   a  talists who have been carefully noting the successful mining operations  in this  camp  (or some time past.  The statement is made that the  combination is fully as strong as any  concern now operating in the Boundary. Development work is to be started  as soon as the necessary arrangements  can be made, the fust work to be done  being   thorough   testing   of   the   ore  backers of the enterprise providing for I some of the immense low grade cop-  de  will  this whenever it shall have bei.n  termined that the ore available  warrant such a step.  For some months past Mr. Martin  has been quietly working on the securing of the necessary options for the  claims included in this group, but as  some of the owners are widely scattered, it has been a slow  process.    The  bodies on the various claims by means j papers, now, however, are all in escrow  of the diamond drill. This, the Pioneer is informed, is expected to be undertaken in a few days, and prosecuted  vigorously, for the purpose of locating  ore and indicating where permanent  work should be commenced.  Mr. Dennis informs Mr. Martin also  that as soon as the development shall  justify it, the purchasers will secure a suit  able site for a smelter of large capacity.  per lodes of the Boundary. This  opinion is also shared by many other  men of prominence in tbe world of  mining.  Of the several groups included in  this transaction, probably the best  known is the Marshall group, named  after James Marshall, the well known  pioneer of this camp. This group has  a tremendous showing of copper-gold  ! in the Eastern Townships Bank in ' ore, on which a good deal of surface  Phoenix. j prospecting   has   been   done,   besides  Mr. Dennis is one of the oldest and ' some shaft work���all of which has  best known residents of the city of I tended to prove that the group has a  Spokane, and was one of the first'gigantic ore, body. It is owned by  men of that city to interest himself in , Dan and John Bresnahan, James Mc-  mining north of that place. He is a ' Nulty and T.

The claims of this group are the  Marshall, Marshall fraction, Little  Brown and Little Annie  In the Monte group are the Monte  Reco, Big Monte, Monte Bravo,  and Keystone, while the Forty gioup  consists of a number of claims  that, like those of the Monte group,  are known to have great surface showings of ore, which competent judges  think will m?ke great mines, with adequate development. The Monte  group and the Marshall group are located next to the Granby and Dominion property, while the Forty  group adjoins the Marshall and Monte  groups on trie north.  Mr.   Dennis   expects   to   visit    the  property in the near future.  MAY TONNAGE  OVER 100,000  From Shipping  Properties of  the Boundary.  COMING AND GOING  Five  Months of  1906  530,937 Tons.  Boundary's tonnage output for the  month of May continued to run over  the 100,000 ton mark, notwithstanding  the fact that repairs and enlargements  to a number of the Granby turnaces  were still under way. These changes  will be completed in the near future,  when the increased output by the  Granby Consolidated will largely make  up in the total monthly Boundary output for the shortage now being occasioned by the entire stoppage of  onielting operations at the reduction  works of the British Columbia Copper  Co. while the three giant furnaces are  being installed. The output for May-  is, consequently, slightly smaller than  it was for April. Comparing the out  put of ore for the several months of  this year thus far, we have the following figures:  January 104,37s tons  February 105,439     "  March 112,63s     "  April  ">798  May 100,694  Total, 5 months,. . .530,937 "  Granby's output for May, 66,817  tons, is nearly 2,000 tons less than for  April, British Columbia's May output  was some 500 tons less and Dominion  Copper's output was about 1,400 tons  smaller than for the previous month.  The figures in detail from each of the  properties, are approximately as follows:  Mine Tons  Granby mines    66,S17  B. C. Copper Co.:  Mother Lode. . 13,56s  Emma    1,446  Dominion Copper Co.  Brooklyn-Stem  Rawhide ....  Sunset   Mountain Rose  13.307  i-77i  3.4S5  66  Providence.  Skylark   Sally   Don Pedro..  Butcher Boy  Total for May 100,694  It has not as yet been the custom  of the large mining companies to give  out the exact values recovered per ton  of ore, but with the excellent price prevailing for the metals, it is believed to  run well o\er $5 for each ton of ore.  Estimating on this basis Boundary  mines produced ore worth $500,000 in  May, and worth $2,500,000 for the  first five months of this year, in gold,  silver and copper.  Election Not Imminent.  William Davidson, of Sandon, hide  pendent laoor member of the legislative assembly from the Slocan district,  was a visitor in the city Saturday,  shaking hands with the many old Slocan boys now residen here. Mr.  Davidson, when asked about the probability of a provincial election this  year, said that he did not expect to  see an appeal to the people at present,  and not before this legislature had  run out its allotted time, which would  bring it next year.  Chna. Peterson Killed at   Strsthmore.  ast Tuesday night (!harles Peterson, a miner employed at the Strath-  more mine, near Greenwood, was killed  by falling rock. Deceased was well  known in the Boundary, and was a  member of the Odd Fellows and  Greenwood Miners' Union No. 22.  He left a wife and two children.  F. H. Knight, the Grand Forks  mining man, was a visitor here Saturday. '  Noble Binns, of Trail, spent two or  three days in the city this week in connection with his furniture business  here.  James Dewar, of the dry goods department of the Hunter-Kendrick Co.,  Gives   ^tc*-> ^as g��ne on a two-months trip to  his old home at Alexandria. Ont.  Sanford B. Snider, of Vancouver, traveling representative for the B. C. Permanent Loan and Savings Co., spent  a few days in Phoenix this week.  W. R. Gates, known to many in  town, left on Tuesday for the east to  see his mother in Troy, N. Y., who is  very ill, and is not expected to live.  A. E. Hogue, an Australian mining  engineer, who spent some time in  Phoenix, is now in charge of development on the M. S. group in Franklin  camp.  Elmer D. Hall, formerly connected  with the Pioneer; left Seattle this week  for Fairbanks, Alaska, where he has  accepted a position with the Fairbanks  Times.  F. E. Starkey, of Nelson, who was  here Wednesday, says the new daily in  that city, the Nelson Canadian, is taking well with Conservatives throughout  the Kootenays.  Walter Cook left Saturday to attend  the Provincial Grand Lodge session  of the Odd Fellows, held at Victoria  this week, as representative of Snow-  shoe Lodge No. 46, of Phoenix.  George H. Mead, ore shipper at the  Granby mines, left Tuesday on a two  months' trip to San F"rancisco and  other California points. G. E Cole  will look after the ore loading in his  absence.  E. W. Monk, of Nelson, representing the Hamilton Powder Co., and H.  P. Dickinson, of Rossland, of the  Giant Powder Co., were both in Phoenix this week, on regular business  trips.  W. T. Choate, for several years the  C. P. R. Eholt agent, has been transferred to Revelstoke to a position of  more responsibility. Mr. Cobb will  attend to Mr. Choate's former Eholt  duties for the present.  Lake D. Wo!ford, of Spokane, visited the Wolford group of claims, on  Fourth of July creek, last Saturday,  where he expects to interest outside  capital shordy. Last year the property-  was tested with a diamond drill.  D. J. Matheson, city clerk and postmaster, went over to Rossland this  week, to transcribe the provincial assessments on lands and improvements  in the new Phoenix school district, outside the city limits.  J. A. Miller, wife and child, left for  Storm Lake, Iowa, on Tuesday, traveling by the Oriental Limited from  Spokane. Mr. Miller was shift-boss  at the Granby mines, having been a  resident here for more than five years.  The night before he left he was called  into the office, and, in behalf of the  men who were under him, he was presented with a fine gold watch, the  speech being made by George E. Cole.  Mr. Miller made a fitting response.  MAY PAYROLL  WAS $150,000  In  Boundary     Mines  Smelters.  Boundary Mining Notes  $60,000 Disbursed in Phoenix  Alone.  ���5-OI4  18,629  130  2 5  20  During the past week the wageroll  for the mines and smelters of the  Boundary for the month of May was  distributed, and while officia.1 figures  are not available, it is known that the  sum paid out was approximately a little  larger than for April, or about $150,-  000 in these two branches of industry  alone.  In Phoenix camp alone the payroll  amounted to about $60,000, distrib  ufed among the 600 or more miners  employed by the Granby Consolidated  and Dominion Copper Co. With a  somewhat increased force in the employ of the latter company, it had the  largest payroll it has yet disbursed in  Phoenix, about $23,000, while the  Granby's roll here was around $40,000.  At the Granby smelter it was about  $30,000. Hereafter both of these  companies will probably have an equal  or slightly larger amount to pay out  on the 10th of each month, with the  heavy shipments and extensive improvements continually under way.  The British Columbia Copper Co.'s  payroll is understood to be slightly  larger than heretofore, with more men  at the mines and new work at the  smelter. It was abont $30,000 at both  mines and smelter, and will likely be  larger still next month, with the addition of 75 or 100 men, if they can be  had, at the Mother Lode mine, in  preparation for increased shipments  when the company's enlarged smelter  is blown in.  In the neighborhood of 150 men  or more are employed in the smaller  and high grade mines of the Boundary,  which adds at least $15,000 to the  monthly wage account of this section.  Tabulated, the pay for the mines  and smelters of the Boundary for May-  was approximately as follows:  Granby  Consolidated $  72,000  B C. Copper Co  Dominion Copper shares are now-  quoted in Boston and New York on  the $10 par value basis.  The long tunnel on   the   Gold Bug  and ls ln over S���� feet' ar"d has reached  ledge matter, which is encouraging to  the management.  The    45-horse   power    locomotive  boiler for the Skylark  mine will be in  stalled as soon as possible, and sinking  resumed to the 250-foot level,  Some of the Providence shareholders have sold out their interests to  the Chicago men who have control of  that banner high grade property.  A second steel smokestack will be  erected at the Dominion Copper Co.'s  Boundary Falls smelter when the third  furnace is installed, late this summer.  Some of the heavy castings for the  new electric-drive air compressor for  the Emma mine, Summit camp, have  been received, and the masonry  foundations are being prepared.  E. H. Thruston, one of the owners  of the Carmi mine, on the West Fork,  is at the property, with machinery and  cyanide experts, looking after the installing of the treatment plant. It is  expected that work on the mine will  be resumed shortly.  Last week the first annual meeting  of the Canada Western Oil Co., Ltd.,  was held at Greenwood, and the following directors elected : Dr. J. E.  Spankie, Dr. G. S. Gordon, Hugh Mc-  Cutcheon, E. R. Redpath, S. B.  Yuill, James McCreath and Angus  Cameron. 'I he company enjoys the  distinction of being the only holder of  an oil lease in the province. An expert will be sent to the property, to  examine with a view to drilling for oil,  and the outlook for the company is  promising.  MOVING DIRT  ON NEW R. R.  Kettle   Valley Line   Building  Up North Fork.  Phoenix Man to Clear  of  Way.  Right  This week the active work of throwing dirt on the North Fork extension  of the Kettle River Valley lines railway was started by W. P. Tierney &  Co., who last week received the contract for the construction of this 50  miles of railway, from Grand Forks to  tlie McKinley mine in FYanklin camp.  A camp was established just outside  Grand Forks, Mr. Tierney and his son  arrived on the scene, and now about  50 men are at work under Foreman  McDonald.  It is understood that about 16 miles  of the line will be built at first, to a  point beyond the Pathfinder mine, or  just below Lynch creek, the balance  to be taken up as fast as possible. It is hoped to be able to secure  at least 500 men at once, the force to  be increased to 1,000 men, to rush the  work.  E. L. Woodard, the Phoenix contractor, has been awarded the work for  clearing the right of way for the first  16 miles, and will start in Monday,  and have employment for 40 or 50  men. The right of way will be cleared  for a width of 100 feet, as usual.  Latest Prices in Metals.

Last week Tuesday the annual meet-  of the Boundary Klkhorn Mining Co.,  Ltd., was held at Greenwood, and those  present expressed satisfaction with the  development now being carried on at  die mine. The directors elected were  President, Phil. McDonald; vice president, James Sutherland secretary-treasurer, H. V. Fuller; managing director,  Dr. [.E.Spankie; and Charles Kenney,  H. C.

Jacob Langeloth, president of the  company and also president of the  American Metal Co, reported on his  recent trip to the Granby mines in  British Columbia. lie is very enthusiastic over the outlook for the property. With the close of the current  month the fiscal year of the Granby  Co. will end, and the annual report,  to be issued in October, should make  a favorable showing as the result of  higher copper and silver prices and an  increased output.  Tlie secretary   stated  shares   of scock   had  1 stope ort  '32>350  issued by the company.  and  that  been  C. J. McArthur, of Greenwood, has  the contract for removing an So-horse  power boiler and other niachilnerv  from the Dominion Copper Co.'s Sunset mine in Deadwood camp, to the  cars, to be transported to the Idaho  mine in Phoenix camp. The plant is  a good one, but there is more ot it  than is needed at the Sunset under the  present plan of open quarry operation.  At the Dominion Copper Co.'s  Mountain Rose claim in Summit camp,  Foreman Fraser has driven the tunnel,  to tap the lend, about 11K feet, with  some 20 or ,50 feet more to go. When  this is done and the glory hole shall  connected by a raise, shipments caiv.  be considerably increased as desired.  t  ^            Mink. Camp.  ^ Granby Mines Phoeni  BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.

Sydney, C. B.
A dispatch from Montreal states that
14,000 tons of steel rails for the Midway & Vernon railway have just been
ordered, and the continuation of construction of this railway is to be started within a very short time, according
to information secured in Montreal and
New York, where the capital behind
the road comes from.
The rails have been ordered from
the Dominion Iron & Steel Co. of
Sydney, Cape Breton, and the order
will be rushed out as soon as the company can commence on it. It is understood that the rails will be shipped
across the continent over the C. P. R.
in preference to transportation around
the Horn, because of the desirability
of saving time.
Since the decision in favor of the
Midway & Vernon as against the province of British Columbia on a refer-
erence as to the disputed subsidy
claimed by the former, the backers of
the railway company have been busily
arranging to go ahead with the building of the road, Some ten or twelve
miles of it has already been graded and
made ready for the steel. This work-
was performed out of Midway.
Grading will probably be pushed
ahead this summer and tracklaying
will be commenced just as soon as the
rails are on the ground, if present
plans are carried out.
There is considerable speculation in
railway circles as to where the control
of the Midway & Vernon will go when
it is completed, and as to wnat roads
it will make connections with. The
Midway terminal of the railway will
be accessible both by the V., V. & E.,
and the C. P. R. lines, while at Vernon there is possible connection with
the main lines of the C. P. R. by a
provincial government-owned road running from Okanagan to Sicamous.
This short government line is now
operated by the C. P. R.
The Vary Best Remedy for Bowel Trouble.
Mr. M. F. Burroughs; an old and
well known resident of Bluffton, Ind.,
says: "I regard Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy as the
very best remedy for bowel trouble. I
maice this statement after having used
the remedy in my family for several
years. I am never without it." This
remedy is almost sure to be needed before the summer is over. Why not
buy it now and be prepared for such
an emergency. For sale by all druggists.

Unknown Friend*.
There are many people who have
used Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and
Diarrhoea Remedy with splendid results, but who are unknown because
they have hesitated about giving a
testimonial of their experience for publication. These people, however, are
none the less friends to this remedy.'
They have have done much towards
making it a household word by their
personal recommendation to friends
and neighbors. It is a good medicine
to have in the home and is widely
known for its cures of diarrhoea and
all forms of bowel trouble. For sale
by all druggists.

How to Break up 11 Cold.
It may be a surprise to many to
learn that a severe cold can be completely broken up in one or two days'
time. The first symptoms of a cold
are a dry, loud courIi, a profuse watery
discharge from the nose, and a thin,
white coating on the tongue. When
Chamberlain's cough remedy is taken
every hour on the first- appearance of
these symptoms, it counteracts the
effect of the cold and restores the system to a healthy condition within a
day or two.    For sale by all druggists.
Every one should remember the
date of the ball to be given by the

paying for the new set of instruments

Torments of Tetter and Eczema Allayed.
The intense itching characteristic of
eczema, tetter and like skin diseases is'
instantly allayed by applying Chamberlain's Salve and many severe cases
have been permanently cured by its
use.    For sale by J. B. Boyle.

You  may have to figure closely in these nutters. A  little extra on a barrel  of flour may look big to  you.  But there is a difference between spending  money wisely and spending it foolishly.  Sometimes it is economy to spend instead of to  save. It is in the case of  Royal Household Flour.  Those few extra cents  a  week,   that give   you  Royal Household Flour  in preference to inferior flour, buy health.  Nothing contributes so much to the food you  eat as flour, and therefore nothing should be more  carefully bought. Ogilvie's Royal Household Flour  is the whitest, cleanest and most nutritious flour that's  milled. Itistheonlyflour  that is absolutely pure.  Ask your grocer.  Ogllvie Hour Mills Co., Ltd.

In everything that goes to make a  high-class, instructive and enjoyable  evening the programme furnished last  night by Miss Nannie Strachan and  Gavin Spence was certainly replete.  Given under the auspices of North  Star Lodg<No. 2, I.O.O.F., the Y. M.  C. hall was packed to overflowing by  an appreciative audience, who demanded an encore after every item on  the programme. For years Winnipeg  has had the reputation of having a  goodly share of Scottish entertainments, but none was quite up to the  standard of last night. Miss Nannie  Strachan, although a stranger to Winnipeg, was received with an enthusiasm  rarely accorded an artist under similar  conditions.  Petite, modest, fascinating, in her  natty Highland costume, she disarmed  criticism the moment she appeared on  the rostrum. Bui when she started  the ''Scottish Blue Bells," her audience  awoke to the fact that no ordinary  concert singer was before it. For tone,  quality, flexibility and vocalization,  she stands unequaled in the realm of  Scottish song. Her "Comin' Thro'  the Rye" was a revelation, and the  "Caller Merrin" sent the audience into  ecstacies The duet, "The Crookit  Bawbee" gave her the necessary opportunity to display her dramatic ability, and this number was probably the  most popular of the whole programme,  although, with such a variety, it is a  difTic tilt thing to pick the most popular.  Wc predict a magnificent future for  this sweet little vocalist.  Mr. Gavin Spence must be seen and  heard to be appreciated. Full of a  dry huni'jr, he kept his hearers in fits  of laughter, when telling stories and  jokes which had the merit of originality. His rendering of "Tessie's Dream,"  and the "Hundred Pipers," was par  excellence, and the many lucid explanations he gave of the origin of the  songs sung were welcomed alike by  all. "Heiland Rory," and "Hooch  Aye" fairly brought down the house.  The entertainment closed with the  audience singing the Scottish Doxology,  Auld   Lang   Syne," and   then   "God  ���  ~m  THE OBSERVATORY  Tiiino* Taikku ok at  Home and Klskwiikkk  Newspaper publishers sometimes receive some odd correspondence. A  short time since we received a card  from an individual who was ashamed  to sign his name, asking why the bank  here did not pay off on paydays in one  and two dollar bills, so that the money  would be more likely to be spent and  circulated. The chances are that if the  writer is a mucker, and puts in eight  whole hours each and every day, he  does not work as hard as the bank  people do on paydays, and that with  using $5 and $10 bills to cash checks  with. It is no picnic to pay out from  $60,000 to $70,000 in small bills in a  few hours' time. The bankers, doubtless have nothing to do with the olhei  phase of the question.  This week a New Yorker writes the  Pioneer, in part as follows, after receiving a copy of our last holiday number :  "In regard to your newspaper, would  say that one of my friends, Mr. ,  is a subscriber, and I take the-  TWO BEAUTIFUL WOMEN WHO ESCAPED  SPRING CATARRH BY TAKING PE-RU-NA.

Here is one  that is characteristic :  "Resolved, There are just as good  fish in the sea as ever were caught,  which means, don't worry over the  past but get hu.iy and try again. Failure is experience, and experience is  the best teacher. I'd rather begin  with an honest failure than an undeserved success. One thing I did do,  I. went fishing and came back with  fish. Don't belong lo the excuse  makers, boys���if you can't return with  the goods, don't say anything, but  make up your mind to try again.  Don't make excuses."  Col. Robert Tecumseh Lowery, who  lias started and conducted weekly'papers in Three Forks, Kaslo, Sandon,  N'ew Denver, Nelson, Poplar, Vancouver, Fernie, Greenwood and a few  other places in this province���not to  mention other provinces���was a caller  at the Pioneer's printing palace this  week, on one of his perigrinating trips.  He was just about to seat himself in  the morocco, plush-covered, easy office  chair of the estaolishment, when he  observed a copy of the Ferine Ledger  there. Rising, he remarked, "No.  thank you: 1 do not care to catch  cold."  A man is indeed great when the  world calls him by his front name.  Jim Hill, for instance.��� Greenwood  Ledge.  How about Duncan Ross ?  #ft  Air. Justice Irving has pronounced  the Kamloops court house as unfit to  sit in, stigmatizing it as "smelling to  Heaven." He must have had the  American beef packing trust in  mind.  He must have been a philosopher  who remarked that "The man who  fears that he will do more than his  salary calls for, will never have much  of a salary to call for.''  ,������  For some time past the Anaconda  (B.C.)   News,   published   by   Robert  Reffer, has held the palm for being  the smallest paper in the province. It  will have to surrender that proud  position now, however, as the Golden  Times, with four pages, each 5 'i\6 '..,  las entered the troubled sea of journalism, in opposition to Peck McSwain.  Perhaps like the Grand Forks Evening  Sun, when first started several years  ago, it is taken as a joke', but it may  turn out to be an important feature of  its community, as the Sun has.  A five pound bass is the largest fish  ever taken from Lake Chargoggagmau-  chagogumgamaug, near YVinsted, Conn.  Out in British Columbia we get much  larger fish, but so far none with so  large a name.  Last week's issue of the Pioneer had  the largest circulation ever printed for  a regular issue of this publication ���  and probably of any publication in the  Boundary. A few short of t,ooo copies were printed, the demand being  due to the exhaustive description of  Franklin camp, now coming to the  front so rapidly.  A Spring Tonic.  ALMOST everybody needs a tonic  In the spring. Something to  brace the nerves, invigorate the brain,  and cleanse the blood. That Peruna  possesses such qualities is beyond all  question.  "We have on file thousands of letters  which testify to the curative value of  Peruna in cases of nervous depression and run down conditions of the  system.  A Typical Letter.  Mrs.Ehoda Stufflebeam, Bunch, Iowa,  ���writes:  "For years I suffered with catarrh of  the throat and bronchial tubes.  "I doctored with different physicians,  but kept getting worse all tho time.  Mrs  "This spring I took a cold wnich settled on my lungs. I had snch a congh  I could not rest at night. My friends,  and I myself thought I had consumption.  "A friend advised me to try Peruna.  I bought a bottle and wrote to you for  advice. Before I had taken one bottle,  my cough was better so I concluded to  give it further trial.  "I followed your directions as closely  as possible, and thanks to you and  Peruna, I am a well woman to-day."    '  Peruna never fails to prevent  spring catarrh or nervous prostration, if taken in time.  Ilattio  Xiirmllron.  Pe-ru-na Contains No Narcotics.  One reason why Peruna has found permanent use in so many homes is that it  contains no narcotics of any kind.  Pcrunais perfectly harmless, if taken  according to the directions on each  bottle. So used, it can be taken any  length of time 'without acquiring a  drug habit.  It has no bad effect upon the syBtem,  and gradually eliminates catarrh by removing the cause of catarrh.  There are a multitude of homes "Where  Peruna has been used off and on for  twenty years.  Such a thing could not bo possible  if Peruna contained any drugs of a  harmful nature.

The staff of the Phoenix General  hospital gave an impromptu dance at  Miners' Union hall Wednesday evening, which was much enjoyed by the  goodly number present. It was intended to give it in the main ward of  the hospital, but the arrival of a couple  of patients necessitated a change of  plans.  Next Monday evening a meeting of  the celebration committee will be held  at the city hall. More subscriptions  to the fund have been made almost  daily, and on Monday the committee  will call on allsubcnbeirs to cash up.  Everything is working out satisfactorily  for a big time on the 2d and 3d of  July here.  Charles Anderson, a miner, formerly  employed in Phoenix, after working  two days at the St. Eugene mine at  Moyie, was killed there last week  Thursday by an explosion.
