Development is soon to be resumed  on the Bay mine in Skylark camp.  At the Granby's Curlew tunnel the  contractors are now in nearly 800  feet.  Good miners are still wanted in the  Boundary, and a big bunch of them  can get employment very quickly at  top wages.  Work continues in the deep workings at the E. P. U. mine by the  Boundary syndicate that started on it  last fall.  The 100 steel ore dumps that have  been ordered by the C. P. R. for use  in the Boundary traffic, will be of 50  tons capacity, instead of 30 or 40 tons  each, as at present.  While most of Boundary's mines were  quiet during May, the Providence, the  banner high grade producer of the district, was shipping regularly about a  car load per week.  Men are steadily coming into Boundary, attracted by the high wages and  steady work offered, and things are  pretty nearly in normal shape once  more as regards output.  Drills are now working steadily at  the Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney,  and it is estimated that there is a year's  supply of ore ahead for the mill, ten  stamps of which are just beginning to  be dtopped this week.  Shipments have been going out  from the Snowshoe all this week at the  rate of some 300 tons of ore or more  daily, which rate is to be increased  before long. Some 70 or 80 men are  now employed at this property.  The large double drum hoisting  engine installed last winter at the Dominion Copper Co.'s Idaho mine, is  being used regularly, and that mine is  now in the steady shipping list. An  immense tonnage is being developed  in the Idaho.  Reports from the B.C. Copper Co.'s  Lone Star and Washington group, just  across the Boundary line, are to the  effect that the property is steadily improving, and is likely to prove a big  thing. It is being operated under a  bond with a dozen men.  One of the really large copper ledges  in the Boundary is being opened up  on the Greyhound mine, Deadwood  camp, by L. H. Mofiatt, of Rossland,  manager of the Rathmullen Mines,  Ltd. Thus far the work done has  been decidedly encouraging.  An electric hoist is being installed  at the Diamond fraction and Texas,  adjoining the Providence. Like all  the high grade mines surrounding  Greenwood, the Greenwood City  Water Works Co. is supplying the  power from its new Boundary Falls  plant.  At the LeRoi mine, six miles from  Camp McKinney, recently bonded by a  Phoenix syndicate, the ledge has been  opened up over 300 feet in length and  some So feet in width thus far. Many  think that this copper property may  turn out to be one of the largest  mining propositions in the Boundary.  In a. letter to the shareholders,  President Tuttle, of the Athlestan  Gold Mining Co., Ltd., of which the  Dominion Copper Co. owned a large  block of stock, stated that arrangements had been made for the taking  in of ihe remaining Athlestan shares  outstanding by the Dominion Copper  Co. at the rate of ten shares of Athlestan to one of Dominion. This arrangement," it is understood, has Leen  practically assented to and carried out  by the Athlestan shareholders, so that  the Dominion Co. now owns the Ath  lestan outright. The mine is located  in Wellington camp, being the best  thought-of property there.  HAS RETIRED  $200,000 BONDS  Dominion Copper Preparing for Dividends.  Company is in Strong Financial Position.  Orevllle 10���Phoenix 8.  Baseball teams in the Boundary  have attained great efficiency of late,  and the match of our local team with  that of Oroville last Sunday was an example of good ball playing on the part  of Phoenix up to the end of the first  inning, when the score stood 7-2, in  favor of the blue and white. Truly, a  good enough margin to warrant the  Phoenix fans to "root" for joy, and  exult in that measure of glee that only  comes of what we term a "cinch."  But after the first inning, Uncle  Sam's boys just played methodical and  careful baseball, with the result that at  the close of the ninth inning they  stood the victors by 10 runs to 8. The  utmost goodfellowship prevailed between the two teams and the clubs'  partizans before, during, and after the  game was over, a very noticeable and  appreciative instance being the Stars  and Stripes and the Union Jack being  bunched together, and carried around  Midway.  Phoenix lost the game and probably  $1,000, but that was all. They gained  the hearty good will of everyoody in  Midway. Oroville, as well as Phoenix,  are anticipating gladly the next encounter between the two teams.  There is plenty more sport in the  Phoenix club, and also plenty more  money to follow them wherever and  whoever they play,  A report from Boston regarding the  Dominion Copper .Co., gives the  following interesting information:  Almost simultaneously with the retirement from net earnings of $200,000,  or 20%, of its outstanding mortgage  bonds, the Dominion popper Co., Ltd.,  is doubling its production of copper.  On Monday fhe long anticipated  blowing in of the Dominion Copper  Co.'s new big furnace, will take place,  and the company should double its  present output, resulting in estimated  net earnings of at least $100,000 per  month.  The company's plant will now have  a capacity of 1500 tons per day and,  allowing for shut-downs, etc., the average tonnage treated will be at least  r200 tons per day. With this output  of ore the management expects a production of 9,000,000 pounds of copper  per annum.  During the past year the operation  and development work at the mines  has been changed from steam to electric power. Most of *me machinery at  the mines has been replaced with new.  The smelter has been rebuilt, its  capacity doubled and changed from  steam to electric power. The economies in the operation which will result  from these improvements should enable the company to make its copper  at a cost of inside 9 cents per pound;  it is expected that better than 8tf  cents will be reached. With copper,  at 25 cents per pound the company  should earn 25% on the par value of  its stock, after retiring each year $100,-  000 of its outstanding mortgage bonds  from net earnings and' after providing  for all fixed charges. With copper at  20.; cental per'...poun-<i,"{he ' company  should earn 17% on the par value of  its stock.  June 1, the company retired from  its net earnings, $200,000, or 20%, of  its outstanding mortgage bonds.  After paying for the building and installation of the new big furnace,  together with all the other improvements at the mines and smelter, besides retiring the $200,000 bonds, the  company has on hand over $400,000  in cash. This strong financial showing  will enable the company to go on  a dividend basis at once.  In anticipation of the present large  tonnage now being inaugurated, the  company has spent a large amount on  development work during the present  year. The Rawhide, Brooklyn and  Idaho mines, situated in Phoenix camp,  and adjoining the properties of the  Granby Co., will furnish 700 or 800  tons of ore per day, the balance coming from the Sunset and Crown Silver  properties, in the Deadwood camp,  adjoining the Mother Lode, the principal producer of the British Columbia  Copper Co.  Title to the Athlestan mine is now  vested in the Dominion Copper Co.  Several thousand tons of this ore, averaging $6 to $8 per ton in gold, have  been run through the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter. Exploration and  development work is now in progress,  and ore from this property will be  shipped within the next two or three  months.  The company does not contemplate  being satisfied with an output of 1200  tons per day, and M. M. Johnson, the  chief engineer of this company, has  been instructed by the board of directors to prepare plans for an additional  1500-ton-per-day smelter capacity.  The cash on hand is more than  sufficient to install this additional  capacity, without the issuing of any  additional capitalization, and without  using any of the net earnings from  operation of the present capacity, but  allowing these earnings to go to the  shareholders in dividends  All labor disputes in both the Boundary district and the Crows Nest Pass  district have been amicably adjusted,  so that there is nothing in sight now to  prevent the mines of the Boundary  from running to their full capacity.  and get used to operating it. As men  are coming in all the time, we should  be able to have all three blast furnaces  in operation new very shortly,  }'������ "Yes, we are working all our mines  now, but we need good miners, that is,  capable machine men. We have  plenty of muckers, but, in fact, all the  mines need miners. They are grad  ually coming along, as fast as they  hear of the increase in wages i lately  granted. ���  "No, we do not anticipate the least  trouble in supplying the 1,400 tons of  ore daily needed at our smelter when  all three furnaces are in blast. Tlie  Rawhide can easily, supply 20 cars, the  Idaho ten cars, and the Brooklyn, if  we need it, can supply another ten  cars per day. Some people think the  Brooklyn is practically worked out, but  we will show them different. Besides  this we are getting ore from our Sunset and Mountain Rose mines. At the  Sunset our 5-drill compressor is being  installed, and we shall also put in a  small electric hoist there."  MACHINE MEN  STILL NEEDED  To  Drill in Mines of  Boundary.  COMING AND GOING  Big Furnace Blown In.  Manager W. C. Thomas, of the Dominion Copper Co., was in camp  Thursday, and was interviewed by the  Pioneer man.  "We blew in the new large furnace at the smelter last Saturday  night," said Mr. Thomas, "and it  is getting down to work in a satisfactory manner. On account of being  short of men we had to blow out one  of the other furnaces, and at the same  time will take advantage of this to  make some repairs on that furnace.  The new furnace, I am fully satisfied,  will come up to all that is expected of  it as soon as the  men  understand  it  William J. Porter left Tuesday for  a short visit to Vancouver.  E. T. Wickwire, of Greenwood, was  attending to business in. Phoenix on  Wednesday.  Mrs. Dr. Mathison came up from  Greenwood Tuesday to attend the  bachelor's ball.  Noble Binns, of Trail, spent a  couple of days in the city this week,  looking after his business interests  here.  Rev. G. W. Ross, of Grand Forks,  was here over Sunday, filling the Presbyterian pulpit in the absence of Rev.  Lundie on his vacation.  W. S. Macy came in from Spokane  Monday and spent the week in camp,  looking after the needs of his big  family at the Granby hotel.  Capt. George A. Smith, who has  been at the Cariboo mine, Camp McKinney, all winter, came down this  week and will remain here.  A. D. Morrison, of Grand Forks,  was visiting his store here this week,  and made some changes, giving the  place one of the prettiest show windows in the Boundaty.-       ���     .��� . j     .  W. C. Ashley and wife, of Seattle,  who have been visiting their daughter,  Mrs. L. Y. Birnie, for a week, left for  home Thursday, intending to stop at  Wenatchee on the way.  John A. Miller left for Rossland last  Saturday, to take up his duties in  charge of development work at the  California-Giant mines, recently consolidated.   Mrs. Miller went this week.  President Colgate Hoyt, and Vice-  President B. B. Lawrence, of the  British Columbia Copper Co., after  spending a week in the Boundary inspecting the property of the company,  as well as other mines and smelters,  left early this week, on the return to  New York.  Edgar W. Fox, accountant at the  Snowshoe mine, left yesterday for  Spokane, and will be married tomorrow to an estimable young lady  of that place. When the newly wedded  couple return a week or two later,  they will make their home at the  Snowshoe.  Frank White, formerly with the  Eastern Townships Bank here, but  now with the Canadian Bank of Commerce in Vancouver, was here this  week, visiting his brother, Milt. White,  of the Granby mines force. He says  the bank has a force of 30 clerks now  at its Vancouver office.  Managers   Generally   Report  Shortage of Miners.  Nearly every mine manager in the  Boundary states that there is still room  for a number of first-class machine  men at the several properties, which,  for the most part, are yet working  short-handed in this regard. It is  understood that there are plpnty of  muckers applying for work, and that  there is no scarcity for that kind of  labor, but good machine men are in  demand at nearly ail the large shipping  properties.  This is due to the fact that, not only  is the average output, maintained before the coal strike in the: Crow, now  being reached, but all the mines are  ready to increase the output materially  over that of a couple of months ago.  Boundary mine managers are today  paying the top price for machine men,  Ihe agreed on scale being now $4.00  per shift of eight hours underground.  When it is remembered, also, that the  price of board has not been raised, as  far as the Pioneer has been able to  ascertain, this rate of pay should hot  only attract plenty of miners but the  best miners in the west. Probably no  camp in the western part of Canada or  the United States pays a better scale  than the Boundary.  Making Ice by Machine.  The first ice making machine to be  installed in the Boundary, so far as  known, has Just been set at work by  Biner & Sons in the plant of the Phoenix Brewing Co. This plant is of the  latest pattern with all modern improvements, .costing the brewery several  thousands of dollars. It is intended  primarily for keeping the great vats of  beer at the right temperature, but is also  used for the manufacture of ice. The  ifirs^arUficul .ice. .was'-placed .-on,_thfi  market this week by Biner & Sons,  and being made from the clearest  spring water, is a fine article. 'Ihe  concern also a short time ago. installed  a beer ��� filter, and it is universally admitted that the Phoenix brewery is  now turning out the best beer in the  Boundary, where there are four other  breweries.  It is understood that F. P. Buck is  arranging to take in some more claims'  in the Phoenix Amalgamated group in  this camp, on which work is to be  started within a few weeks.  GAMBLING COST  $50 AND COSTS  David Oxley Fined by Police  .'.; )udge.';:  ��� '.[  .��  Monday evening Chief of Police  Gunn arrested David Oxley and five  others for gambling in the Summit  hotel. After being postponed, the  case came on for hearing before A. S.  Hood, the acting police magistrate,.  Wednesday afternoon, Mr. Oxley  being represented by J. P. McLeod,  'solicitor, of Greenwood. He pleaded  not guilty. The judge allowed the  others lo go on suspended sentence,  but found Mr. Oxley guilty, and fined  $50 and costs, or 60 days in -jail. It  is understood that Mr. Oxley intends  to appeal the case.  Strict orders have 6een given in the  past to stop all gambling in the city,  and it seems to be the intention ol the  police commissioners to see that the  orders are carried out to the letter.  COURT OF REVISION  TO BE ON JULY 15  To Listen To Assessment Objections.  ' , At the last meeting of the city  council there were present Mayor  Matheson and Aldermen Birnie, Porter  and Carson.

By the end of the month water should  reach McCallum's ranch, about four  miles from the dam, which is on Rock  creek, above its confluence with Kettle  river.  +**m&a&nwaw0&#**a&.n^ ;,.+*���*&>  Death of Mountain Rose Miner.  Wednesday's C.P.R. train brought  in a miner from the Mountain Rose  mine, William Clark, suffering from  quinsy. He grew rapidly worse, affect  ing his heart, and at 2 a.m. the next  day he passed away. His brother-in-  law, E. R. Shannon, of Grand Forks,  arrived that day, and yesterday took  the remains to Grand Forks, where the  funeral was held.  Clark was a young man, being but  19 years of age, and had been ill but  two or three days. He was a son of  one of the oldest residents in the  Boundary, "Seattle" Clark, the locator  of the well known Seattle mine, up the  North Fork.  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.  Hull OF COMPANY.

Moore's Concert Co. gave entertainments on Wednesday and Thursday at  the opera house, and there were almost  universal expressions of satisfaction by  those who attended. One ol the best  and most popular features of the entertainment was the moving picture  and illustrated song part. Those were  undoubtedly the best moving pictures  ever seen here, being exceedingly clear  and life-like. Mr. Moore will not use  electricity for these pictures, in the  places he visits, preferring to pay a  high price for the gas which he imports  direct from Omaha, thus, as he claims,  getting superior results. After each  entertainment a dance was given, and  the music was certainly appreciated by  the large number that tripped to its  strains.  Minb.

Then  the C.P.R., or a little before that, reduced its ore hauling rate to 25 cents  per ton, finally a reasonable figure.  Something over two years ago, Jim  Hill, after completing his rails to Phoe  jiix, without government grant or sub-  jsidyof any kind, but buying every" foot,  f his right 'of way outright, began  ihauling ore and doing il in a businesslike manner. He needed no pointers  the C.P.R., be used no slow,  powerful, Shay side-geared  locomotives.

"or Great  Northern railways in the. past, if this  paper  believed   they   deserved   such  criticism.    Nevertheless,' we believe in  giving credit when it is due.    In last  week's issue of the Kootenaian, published at Kaslo, we find the following:  "About the only stuff that the Great  Northern ever comprehended the transportation of, is wheat.    Jim Hill'and  his gang have got so used  to, hauling  wheat, that they think there is notHirig  else in the world to haul'."*  This criticism is doubtless brought  out by the belief, which may be a fact,  that the Great Northern.does not give  a satisfactory service in that r^rf;o|'the  Kootenays. It would not surprise us  any if such was the.. case; but at the.  same time, it may be borne in mind  that the Great Northern has been  operating its Kaslo & Slocan railway  and its Kootenay steamer line for years  at a loss. This in turn was caused by  the decadence, unfortunately, of the  mining industry in that lc^lity^but  which, we are pleased to note, is once  more looking up and improving./    y;  When Jim Hill started hauling  Phoenix ore, he sent some of his  Michigan iron ore steel dumps, which  held 50 tons each, to this district.  But they would hold but 35 tons of  Boundary ore, no matter how heavily  jthey were loaded. So Mr. Hill at  |once gave orders to build a string of  steel dumps that would hold 50 tons  fit Phoenix ore���and they are in com  ,mission today on the Phoenix run.  Some people may think that Jim  (Hill does not know how to haul anything ,but wheat, but residents of Phoe-  nix, who see the ore trains going out  'every day on both C.P.R. and Great  ���Northern, cari readily perceive tKat Mr'.  Hjjl.is today, hauling ore. away from  jhere at less,cost per ton mile than his  Word comes from the Cariboo that  trappers and. Indians, arriving in Ques-  nel from outlying districts report a very  poor catch of fur, the reason assigned  being the excessive snowfall and the  bitterly cold weather of last winter.  Loggers have been so active in the  coast camps, that it has been decided  to close all the camps of the B. C.  Loggers' Association on June 29th,  throwing out about 2,000 employees.  Too many logs for the market is the  reason assigned.  The Nest Egg mine at Rossland has  been leased by Edward Webb, of the  B.C. Land and Improvement Agency,  Ltd., London, England. Mr. Webb  will immediately begin operations on  the Nest Egg, which has "not been  operated since the fall of 1897.  Kamloops is to have two hangings  this summer, one, James C. Dale, on  July r8th, for killing Joseph Cell last  lOctober at the Carmi mine; and the  other Sam Luck, on August 5th, a  Chinese cook, who killed a waiter at  J. B. Hobson's Bullion placer mines.  Every Man His Own Doctor.��� ^��'\  'The average man cannot'-'anora To  employ a physician for every slight ail-  . . ment or injury that  may occur in his  (big competitor, who has   been  in  the family* nor can  he afford   to neglect  business seven years.    Jim   Hill  runs them, as  so  slight  an  injury as the  jionger (rains, with greater tonnage,  with less .employees and less power  than the C.P.R. If.the C.P.R. could  throw away its Shay engines without  any one.being the wiser, especially in  .Montreal, some day they would all go  over the dump of oblivion-���and the  railway would eventually be ahead of  the game.'  But let us see whether Uncle Jim  Hill does know anything about hauling  ore, judging from what he has done  and is doing in the Boundary district,  for instance. | '  For years the C.P.R. did all the ore  hauling���and all other kinds, for that  matter���in the Boundary; in short, it  had a "lead pipe cinch" on the business. Month in and month out, for  instance, the Granby Co. alone used  to pay the C.P.R. $1,000 per day and  more for its freight bills, to say nothing  of the other mines, smelters and  numerous other sources of revenue.  This was nice for the C.P.R., and that  corporation seemed to think it came  by it by divine right. As a result,, no  more accommodation was given than  was forced out of the railway. As a  sample, the city of Phoenix had to  fight, tooth and nail, first to get* a  passenger service and then a mail  service over Canada's greatest railway,  for months after ore trains were running here regularly.  And so we say, that Jim Hill knows  something about hauling ore as well  as about hauling wheat. As a matter  of factj"Whatever his shortcomings may  bej.Mlk Hill basal ways been a creator  of traffic wherever he has run his lines.  In British Columbia, his Supt. R. C.  Morgan has indeed a difficult problem,  withj the many branches and towns to  seryie.with.satisfactory freight and pas-/  senger seryiee���rsome of which branches  are [anything but profitable, owing to  the existing,local conditions.  . Perhaps the best proof that Jim Hill  knows,what, he is about in hauling ore  is the fact the C^P.R. has taken a  leaf from his notebook, and has today  on order 100 steel ore cars for the  Boundary service���which should arrive  here some time on this earth, or before the mines of the Boundaiy have  shipped their available million tons of  ore, more or less.  scratch of a pin has been known to  cause the loss of a limb.

MATTERS OF  INTEREST   TO   THOSE  COPPER   MINING  6  c  l<J ��^*<�� o^-t* 0*0 C*"��<<*  The Secretin Syndicate.  In 1880 the world was producing  153,959 tons of copper. Scientists at  this period were just beginning lo comprehend the tremendous possibilities  latent in electrical phenomena, and  electricity as an industry had not began to make itself felt. From 1880 to  1888 production gradually rose-till in  the latter year the world was producing  258,026 tons. In 1888 only thirteen  small electric railroads were constructed in the United States, so, whilst the  electrical demand had become a factor,  it was comparatively small The consumption of copper, however, it will be  seen, was gradually advancing.  M.. Secretan, a Paris financier, formed, in February, 1888, a syndicate intended to monopolize the copper output, the step being considered feasible  in view of growing consumption.  Arrangements were made with leading  copper mines of the world for their  total product, the syndicate, backed by  the Comptoir d' Escompte, France's j  largest bank, guaranteeing to take such j  output at satisfactory prices. The  venture seemed destined to succeed,  the price of copper jumping from 11 to  17^ cents per pound within one  month.  The syndicate paid much less than  the latter price to the mines supplying  it with copper, and, by buying all  copper offerejd by other than the mines  controlled, kept the price for one year  at 17 cents. M. Secretan was in ad  vance of the world's progress, however.  Copper then was more of a luxury than  a necessity; it could be used, but could  also be dispensed with, and the first  effect of the high price maintained was  more restricted use by consumers.  The syndicate had to buy the copper  it had contracted for, whilst it had to  store, in lieu of selling it. M. Secretan,  moreover, failed to realize that no  previous abnormal demand for copper  had raised prices and brought out "invisible supplies." 'Ihe price maintained had this effect, and copper that  had accumulated for ages before was  secured by dealers all over the world  and by them consigned to France lor  disposal to the spndicate; it was buried  beneath a flood of the red metal. In  December, 1888, the Tunds and credit  of the syndicate were exhausted. The  great Camptoir d' Escompte, containing the savings of millions of wage-  earners of France tottered in the resultant panic. The copper god called  for a victim and M. Deufert-Rochereau  found a suicide's grave. The Bank of  France and Government of France,  aided b> the Rothchilds and a   syndi-  4  INTERESTED  INDUSTRY  IN    THE  9  cate of bankers, rushed in and stemmed the impending tide of ruin. The  call was close, but the-bank was ultimately saved.  Copper dealers, whilst' syndicate  prices were being maintained,.scoured  the world for surplus copper supplies;  enormous stocks were thus bought, but  the collapse of the syndicate left them  stranded at enormous loss.  This reserve supply of the accumulated product of centuries had, however, to be finally absorbed; actual  copper production was continuing at  an increasing ratio and.prices gradually  declined till, in 1894 the metal was  selling at an average of 9, 52 cents per  pound, the lowest price it has ever  touched.

And still the wonder grows whether  or not the Laurier government will be  :only too glad to take advantage of the  ;delays in the construction of the Grand  Trunk Pacific railway, to work in  another general election before very  much is done on the extreme western  end. Things are certainly looking that  way, and there is enough jockeying  being done over the.Pacific terminus  to build several roads.  Vancouver is to have another weekly  paper next week, when John P. Mc-  Connell, an experienced newspaper  man, will start the Saturday Sunset.  With the whitening bones of a dozen  or more uncalled-for weeklies staring  him in the face in Vancouver, Mr.  McConnell knows exactly what he is  up against. The field is there all right,  and we look to see something worth  while in the Saturday Sunset.  For a while a few of the Liberal  papers of the province were much exercised because Premier McBride had  not sent them a special cablegram from  London, stating-just what he had done  in the better terms presentation to the  colonial secretary. These same papers  should bear in mind that Premier McBride has made good with every matter  be has taken up since be entered  politics in this province, and the  chances are more than even that this  will be no exception to the rule, and  that, as a result, a greater measure of  justice will be done to this province in  future at Ottawa.  The Haywood trial.at-Boise is, more  than anything else, in the public eye,  and the sickening testimony of Harry  Orchard in connection with the score  of murders he has had a hand in, only  serves to discredit all the more the de^  tails told by him.- It is a ten to one  shot that there will yet be some surprises before this now famous trial is  over.  John Dorsey, formerly of the Boundary, has started north to the Bulkley  valley, and among his other ictas on  this trip, he carried along a printing  press and a sack full of type, the Bulkley Pioneer to be issued from its own  heath soon, instead of from .Vancouver.

One reason why Peruna has found permanent use in so many homes is that it  contains no narcotics of'any kind.. :  Peruna is perfectly harmless, if taken  according  to tho'directions on each .  bottle.   So used, it can be taken any  length of   time 'without acquiring s  drug habit.  It has ho bad effect upon the system,  and gradually eliminates catarrh by re*  moving the cause of catarrh.

P. Burns & Co., Ltd., now have  their refrigerating plant installed and  in operation in the building recently  erected in Phoenix for , the transaction of the firm's growing business.  There will be no difficulty in future in  keeping the supply of meat in the  warmest of weather. The plant is  operated by electricity, furnished by  the local lighting company.

Died, in Greenwood, Wednesday,  June 4th, .Mrs. M. A. Pope, aged 72  years.    Funeral last Friday afternoon.  Greenwood's school board is spending $1,350 in fitting up another room  in the public school of that place, for  use after the summer holidays.  The proposed issuance of a pamphlet by Greenwood's board of trade,  giving facts about the Boundary, is a  step in the right direction. It should  be pushed along.  The lodge of Rebekahs in Greenwood has elected the following officers  for the ensuing term: N.G., Mrs. D.  McHunter; V.G., Mrs. W. B. Flemingj  R.S., F. E. Brown; F.S., Mrs. Boak;  Treas, A. E. Braithwaite.  A. E. ;Rainey, of Grand Forks,  better known as Lord Arthur Rainey,  died Sunday evening at the Cottage  hospital in that city. He has lived in  Grand Forks, where he was in the  cigar business, for five or six years.  Following are the new officers of  Boundary Valley Lodge, No. 38, of  Greenwood: N.G., A. E. Braithwaite;  V.G., Frank Spearing; R.S., R. J.  Sanders; F.S., G.-.B. Taylor, P. G, reelected, tenth term;  treas., E^   Foyle  Snutb; p.g; n v     '.������'  James McRae, of McRae Bros.,  Ltd., left last Saturday for a visit to his  old home near Sarnia, Ont., and may  take in the much boomed Cobalt and  other camps before he returns, later in  the season. It is many years since he  was in the cent belt  Granby hotel, when it is well filled,  was .seen this week, and asked what he  intended to do about this matter. He  stated that he should not raise the  boarding rates, no matter what others  did. The price is the same now as it  has been for the last eight or nine  years, namely, one dollar per day for  board alone. It is, therefore, not likely  that the local hotels will increase the  price of board, particularly those that  are catering for the trade of those employed in the mines.  Do Not Neglect the Children.  At this season of the year the first  unnatural looseness of a child's bowels  should have immediate attention. The  best thing that can be given is Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy followed by castor oil as  directed with each bottle of the remedy.  For sale by all druggists.  J. L.

N. railway grade shook  things up pretty well about town, scattering rocks all  over   the   city,  and  breaking some windows nearly  half a  mile   distant.     Contractor Gallagher  will, of course, make good any  damage done by his men, but he  will   be  up against it   if   any   fatalities occur.  One piece of  bull  granite  from   that  blast  struck  the telephone cable in  front of the E. T. Bank,   necessitating  repairs thereto yesterday.  Wednesday G. E.
