PHOENIX,  B.C., SATURDAY, JUNE \,  \  9F2  N.  J.   Carson,   who recently  returned from a   visit   to the holding's  of the   Phoenix   Mining-,    Smelting  and   Development   company,    near  Beaverdell, says he  for one is quite  satisfied with  the  company's future  prospect at that place.     A  contract  for a large  amount  of development  has   only   lately   been   awarded    to  Angelo   Luciani,   who  now has  six  men   on  the   work.     The property,  which   is   known    as    the    Duncan  group, consists of three claims and  a fraction and was recent!}' bonded  by   the   local   company.    The   development   ' work    already   accomplished consists of a tunnel 100 feet  in dep.th,   with   a   drift   of 45  feet | race,  along the lead and a tunnel in about  200' feet; the showing- can be traced  for 3000 feet.     The  steel  has been  laid within   a mile   and a  half from  the   property,   which   at   one   time  shipped six  cars  of silver-lead ore,  averaging-  $125 ' per   ton,    to    the  Granby company's smelter at Grand  Forks.  details of his new method, but it is  learned that a plant that requires  $250,000 a year to operate can be  carried on , by the new Edison  method for $50,000.  ���The    general   effect  of  Edison's  method will be to do away with the  term   " low-grade " ore.     With his  system the valuable product can be  extracted   from  all  ores.    The machinery he has  created is so simple  that a child could operate it.   Those  closely associated with .the inventor  declare  he  believes  his  new invention is the most valuable  he has yet  given to mankind.      H. B. Clifford,  who  is   stopping-   at  the   Waldorf-  Astoria, stated, lately that there was  no doubt   about   the success of Mr.  Edison's work.  " I cannot explain the details" he  said, " but there is no doubt>botit  the wonderful way it worked out.

Edison's Latest  The New York American,   one of  Hearst's   yellowest    of   the  yellow  journals,   hasf the     following,    the  truth of which  is of course vouched  for:  " Thos. Edison, it .was learned  by the New York American, a few  days since, has accomplished the  crowning triumph of his career. He  has perfected a method of separating-  the paying elements of ores that  will mean $100,000,000 a year to  the productive wealth of the country. The inventor has been working over his plan for years, and, it  is said, kas spent a fortune, in his  experimental   work.     He   is  not  at  light in the matter of important inventions. Its wonder is in its important simplicity. It is revolutionary in its effects upon the progress  of the commerce of the world.  "The whole plan of extracting  the valuable material from ore will  soon be changed to the immense  advantage of mankind as a result of  Edison's work."

Such  is the record already  reached by G.  W. McMynn, government agent bf  the Greenwood   division of British  Columbia.    As might be expected,  such a career of faithful service has  not gone unrecognised, for only recently Mr. McMynn received notice  of  his   promotion   and   transfer   to  Golden, where he will  have charge  of a   much   more   extensive   riding,  including the Windermere district.  Not alone in  government  circles!  has the   civil secvice  career  of Mr.  McMynn    been     appreciated;     the,  people also whose   interests  he has  watched over   in  the Boundary and  elsewhere   for   so  many years have  been by no means  backward  in acknowledging    those   services,    arid  with   that  motive in v'ew,   assem-l  bled   on    Monday    evening   in   the  clubrooms  at   Greenwood.     Representatives from   all quarters   of the  Boundary   were  present   in    strong  force,   quite a large delegation from  Phoenix driving down   to  pay their  respects and bid farewell to the departing gold commissioner.  The    proceedings    that   followed  were of the liveliest description, the  wit and humor  being  truly western  in     character,    and,     naturally     of  course when   pioneers   meet,   full of  reminiscences   .of    early   hardships  courageously   met and triumphantly  overcome.      E. G. Warren, general  manager of the   B. C.   Copper  Co:,"  presided . over the gathering-, -ancM-lf  his opening- speech, referred in complimentary terms   to the  career and  sterling worth  of the popular agent  and voiced   the   regret, not only of  himself, but   of all Boundaryites,  at  notwithstanding the fact of the  bodies which are being blocked out.  A raise has been driven through to  the surface from the fiisl and second  levels and ore bodies found in three  different places.  Wm.

The affairs of the Riverside Mining company have now reached a  satisfactory stage, the loading of  ore having commenced this week,  shipments to the Granby smelter at  Grand Forks having been facilitated  by the.construction of a short spur  connecting the Kettle Valley railway.      It   is   the   intention   of   the  management to   continue   the ship-  new era of prosperity is  now open-  ment of about three,  ing for the goldfields  of the Omin-  from now on  eca district.

They   now   intend   to  put in a  considerable portion ofthe  open   season    in   taking    out   ore.  Several   carloads : have   been   shipped   from   this   promising   property, which   averages   $23.80   to   the  ton.

Of the find, Foreman Daly, who is in charge of the  development, writes the paper:  "The property is looking fine. I  made a new discovery of solid  galena ore, apparently of good  grade. It is the largest surface  showing I have yet seen stripped in  British Columbia of this character  of ore. It is from nine to 15 feet in  width in different places.

Assuring the directors and shareholders at their recent annual meeting that the platinum group of metals was present in the Granitc-  Poorman ore in paying quantities,  A. Gordon French said that he confidently expected "within a short  time to commence operations look-  in"- to the extraction of these  metals. He explained that he had  been very busily engaged all the  winter with his rinc process, and  which has now been taken over by  the Consolidated company, and that  he had therefore not had the time  to devote to the treatment of the  platinum metals.

Lemieux, commissioner  of works and handy man of the  town, who obligingly improvised a  pole and draped the precious bunting from the roof, satisfying even  the most exacting of Liberal patriots.  While on the subject of flags, it  might not be out of place if someone drew the attention of the  Ottawa government to the absence  oi' a flag over the local postoffice  and custom house, and as touching  the same subject, it would be an  act much appreciated by the teaching staff and scholars of Phoenix  public school if the provincial government donated a (lag and flagstaff for the use of that place of  learning.  M. Kane, who has secured the  contract for erecting the new flagstaff over the city hall, by no  means asimplc operation,lias already  made great progress, a fine stick-  having been secured and the  scaffolding installed.

It is understood that hardly  a day passes that several communications   are not   received  in   which  the wqters bewail the loss of money  invested in some scheme  that promised phenomenal dividends and returns.   One of the  saddest of these  cases was that of a lady who about  three years ago enquired   as  to the  cost of an annuity of $600.    The information   was   promptly   given  to  her, but the opportunity to purchase  was   not  embraced.     She believed  she could invest her money to better  advantage,   and  that by   the   time  she  attained hei   55th  birthday she  would not only have  enough to pay  the   annuity   outright,    but   a  little   fortune  besides.     This  week  another  letter   has   bees    received  fiom   the   same   lady, who,   by the  way, is now over  fifty years of age,  which  furnishes- the   sequel  to   the  story.     She  said she  had  spent all  her  savings   on   worthless  stocks,  firmly believing that she would soon  acquire    riches.       She ' refused   to  listen   to any   advice,   but  invested  and lost all she   had  in schemes she  knew little or nothing about.   " For  some  time   I   had   a   large salary,"  she   said,    "and   gave   to   certain  companies every  month.     But now  that they have turned out worthless  I see  how  crazy  and wrong I was.  I   am   sorry,   if  ever  anyone   was  sorry,   for  what   I  have done,  but  nothing will bring back what I have  wasted."    Her   case   is  a   pathetic  one,   and   her  experience has been  costly, but it is the common experience   of  many who  have  tried   the  get-rich-quick schemes.  In'the  same month  of the same  year  (1909), another  lady   inquired  as to the cost of a Canadian government annuity.     She,'too, had saved  a  nice  little  sum   for the    " rainy  day," as   the  result  ot her own labors.     She began   payments, starting-with, a "lump sum, and continuing monthly"'payments with ' a.view  to purchasing  the- same   amount of  annuity  to   begin   at the same age  (55).      In   the   course  of  time she  became   afflicted    with   a    malady,  which  although   not fatal, incapaci  tated her from earning a livelihood  |j|^|^.i��t:^Sbfisii'cd; is' Volume X, for tho years 1910-  ^^P*iS^l^^i^nfly^<lu-ired "early eighteen months in  j;^v��|^;;;i;preparn.tibii.  ~^'''^'''W^BAS 1902 PAGES  ItonSihin^nearljrone and a half million words,  bryabbut'twice as much matter as the Bible.  iThere are 25 chapters, and the book covers tbe  Spokane Fair���1912  Spokane, -May 31.���Twenty-  thousand copies of the new 'Spokane fair premium list have! been  mailed out during the past week.

The  jury deliberated for thiee hours and  a half and found the prisoner guilty  of wilful murdei. Judge Hunter,  who tried the case,' was visibly af-  fectqd, and Poelke, when asked if  he had anything, to say why the  sentence of death should not be  pronounced, had much difficulty in  articulating "No Judge." Counsel  was provided for Poelke by the  Crown, and he was ably defended  by Mr. Rogers of Vancouver, who  made a splendid speech in the prisoner's favor, although he had not  one witness to call for the defence.  There were nine witnesses for the  prosecution, the principal witness  being Frank Wilson, who was present when the crime was committed  and turned King's evidence.  Addressing the prisoner, the  judge said he had been convicted of  a most cold-blooded and atrocious  murder after a patient trial and  every consideration. It was not  for him to dwell on the facts. He  fully concurred in the verdict and  sentenced the prisoner to death.  During the period that the prisoner has been awaiting his- trial in  Kamloops jail, constant vigilance  has been necessary on the part of  the officials, yet in spite of this he  almost succeeded in escaping-. The  attempt to break jail was, however,  frustrated, but not before he had  almost completed sawing in two the  heavy leg irons with which he was  manacled. A small steel saw was  found in his shoe. It is probable  the prisoner would have completed  the job without discovery had that  not been the date set for his removal to Vernon to stand his trial.  It is not known how James secured  the saw.

PHONE F 32  To Abolish Coal Mines  A project for abolishing coal mining entirely has recently been advanced by Sir Wm. Ramsay, president of the British Association for  the Advancement of Science. He  suggests that coal instead of beini;  mined and carried outside, be burned  in tbe seam as it lies, and the heat  produced be served to generate  power which may be transmitted  electrically to the points where it  is needed.  There is absolutely nothing, he  says, to prevent a borehole from being put down until the coal stratum  is reached and concentric tubes being used to set the coal on fire (by  electricity) and to blow air down to  enable the coal to burn as a preliminary operation. Coal with plenty  of air gives off carbon dioxide.  When half burned, it gives Dawson's gas, which is used for gas  engines. If steam were blown in it  will give a mixture of hydrogen and  carbonic acid, or water gas, which  is frequently used for gas engines.  Bring your gas engines to the mouth  of your pit or bore-hole, and produce  your power there. You would thus  have 30   per  cent available  in fuel  $500 in cash and $2000 in notes,  bearing interest at eight per cent.  He had also been turning over to  her a portion of his earnings. Both  are married to other parties and it  was in connection" with a dispute  over money matters that the assault  was made.  It was obvious that Clark is an  undesirable, and he either should  be deported or allowed to relurn lo  the United Stales where ho claims  to be anxious to go. His detention  is owing to the slowness with which  official red tape is unwound in the  department of immigration. It is  against all sense and decency that a  man should have Nto remain in the  jail with such poor accommodation  lor such a long period without action on the part ofthe authorities.  It is also an imposition upon the  city police, who are charged with  the responsibility of seeing thai he  does not escape and of 'looking  after him in his condition.  It is high lime that the decisions  of immigration officials could be reviewed by some tribunal, for at the  present time, no mailer , how  arbitrary, or with what dilaloriness  they may proceed, there is no reme  dy by habeas corpus.

That energy might be  transformed into electricity and it  could be distributed throughout the  country.  That the idea   of burning coal in  the   seam   for commercial  purposes j ba\  is   not    a   ciream,   buL    a    practical  possibility,   anyone    who   is   at   all  conversant with   the   modern   application of science will admit.

There   is the  combination   chosen   by   the people   of  the  Yukon   to     handle   the   territory's  legislative affairs.   Viewed from the  angle  of business  callings, the  organization   is well   balanced.     The  miners   predominate.       It   is. well.  Mining is the support of the,country.

Sir  William Ramsay, the orig-inator of  the coal-burning scheme, is confident of its success aud a small colliery in England has been placed at  his disposal for experimental purposes.  Red Tape  According to the Rossland Miner  a strange state of affairs exists in  that city with regard to the deportation of "undesirables." The following is from the current issue of the  above paper:  Geo. R. Clark has been in the  city lockup for four weeks with no  charge against him and no reason  for detaining him other than the request of the Canadian immigration  officials that he be held pending  deportation. On the 6th of May,  Chief of Police Long wired to the  superintendent: of immigration, at  Winnipeg, asking that the man be  deported immediately as he was  suffering from a contagious disense,  and that there was no proper accommodation for keeping a man any  length of time in the city jail.  A telegram was received in reply  stating that every means would be  used to expedite the matter.  Clark was charged in the police  court with assaulting his paramour,  with whom he came to this country,  the twain posing as man and wife.  He was fined $100 for the assault,  which he paid. It came out in evidence that he had given the woman,  who   is   of  the   demi-monde   class,  MOVING MACHINERY OUR SPECIALTY  If Tired ofVsTood, try Princeton Coal  soiled bank notes, says the Montreal  Star   in   a   recent   editorial   on   the  subject.    They are disgusting, dangerous and unnecessary.    The Bank  of  England���which    does   quite   a  business���never re-issues  a note at  all.      It may come in-as pure as the  driven   snow,   but  it   is never sent  out again.      Our  bank notes are issued and re-issued until a fastidious  person    would    almost     rather   do  without the   money   than  touch the  filthy things.     Some  banks are better   than    others    in    issuing  clean  notes;   and there  is   no reason why  they should   not all   be  brought up  to a high standard.

Wetherell and McAstocker,  the enterprising   proprietors    of   the  The Yukon Boundary  In an interview given at Prince  Rupert to a representative of a  coast contemporary, Dr. Alfred  Thompson, member of parliament  for the Yukon, briefly outlined the  legislation proposed and effected for  the advancement of his far northern  constituency. Dr. Thompson has  in mind a proposal tor the readjustment of the northern boundaries.  The talk  of disgruutled Alaskans  asking  Canada   to  take   over   that  territory he took little stock in, but  he believed that  it would be for the  benefit  of   both   Canada   and   the  United States to straighten out the  boundary  line  agreed   upon  by the  Alaskan arbitration  board,  so   that  Yukon  could   have   an   opening to  the seaboard.     He believed that the  boundary should run with  the coast  from here or Portland canal straight  into   the   Lynn   canal,    at   Haines,  where  the   United   States  government   is   now   maintaining  a  fort.  This would give to Canada the port  of Skagway, and  in   return  for this  the Dominion  could well   afford  to  concede other available lands in the  north, or the Mother Country could  concede to the   United States lands  in   some other part   of the British  Empire  the   United    States   might  desire. ..  "Of course," concluded the doctor, '��� I do not know if I am going  to carry it through at the first session, but I have talked with members and also with influential leaders  in the United States and I feel  much encouraged. By the time of  my return I shall have formulated  my plans and shall be glad to let  you have them because I believe  Prince Rupert will naturally become  the supply point for the Yukon, and  I also think it may become a great  factor in Alaska development, customs duties notwithstanding,"  Here you will find  Smart Suits, and  if your desire is to  look well dressed  visit our Clothing  Department.
