Jos  Darragh, who   is   in   charge, states  that the  highest  grade   is eight per  cent, and only   for a  short distance  at that.      Already three miles of the  roadway has been  finished and over  a ton   of dynamite used  up   to the  present.      The   completion    of   the  road will  prove  an  estimable  boon  to   the settlers    in    that   neighborhood, who   at  present   have   to depend on the packhorse for the conveyance   of  supplies.      It   is    now  thought  that the   new   road  can be  connected    at   little    expense    with  the wagon trail  to   Rossland, and if  the surmise proves correct there can  be small doubt but that the government   will    seriously    consider   the  advisability of constructing it.  couVse " the time-honored greasy  pole competition will provide amuse  ment for half-an-hour.

Some of the  stopes, supported by pillars, being  of more than unusual dimensions;  the character of the rock lending  itself admirably to this method of  extracting ore.  Owing to the low-grade quality of  the   product   and    its   presence    in  enormous   quantities,   it   has   been  found that   to work  the property to  any   commercial advantage,   it was  necessary   not   only   to   mine on   a  colossal scale but to exercise in that  operation     thc     virtue    of      strict  economy.     This was strikingly illustrated    on    Monday  last,     when   a  portion    of   the   mine,    which    previously   had   been   deprived   of   its  pillar   supports   and abandoned  for  stoping,   "caved-in"  bodily.     From  an official   source  we learn   that the  amount of rock displaced was  enormous, a   rough   estimate  placing it  in the millions of tons.     The area of  ground   affected   extends for  about  700 feet, with   a width   of from 200  to 400 feet and going down as far  as the   No.   3  stopes,  filling    them    I with ore, which in the future can be  "'     ~ ' handled and   shipped  at a minimum  of expense.  494,221  247,3S6  85,542  10,761  278  5,550  Granby's Blister Copper        I        B c Copper ^reatment  Shipments ot   blister copper trom j     The   B.C.

The company has carried  on business at the place for more  than 100 years.  The central training camp for the  mounted troops of British Columbia, for 1912, is at Vernon. Two  regiments of cavalry, the 30th and  31st went into training this week.  The Manchester cup, one mile  and a half, was won by Lord  Derby's 3-year-old colt, Donoi-  thorne, J. A. DcRothschild's Bron-  zino was second, and T. Baring's  Mushroom third.  The Rev. R. V. Macy, who recently arrived at Fort Steele to assume charge of a church there, was  so disappointed at the state of the  vineyard in that locality, dial he  boarded the first train for Montreal  en route for the old country.  H. R. McMillan of the Dominion  government forestry service has recently resigned for the purpose of  accepting thc position of chief forester of the British Columbia government. He is an Ontario man  and received his training at Yale.  A Regiment's Penance  Gieat    preparations     are    being  made among the officers and troopers of the Twelfth  Royal Lancers,  now    stationed    at   Johannesburg,  South Africa,   to  celebrate the termination of  the one hundred years'  penance  imposed   on   that   famous  regiment by  the  Duke   of Wellington.    During  the  Peninsular  war,  when the armies  of Spain and Portugal,  backed   by   a  British   force,  were engaged in the task of driving  the French  out of Spain,  a charge  of having looted a convent was preferred against some  of  the  men of  the twelfth;   all  efforts   to   find the  guilty   parties   having   failed,   and  and   by   way    of  punishment,    the  band was ordered to assemble in the  barrack square, at ten o'clock every  night  for  one   hundred  years   and  play five pieces, including the Spanish, French, Portuguese and British  anthems  and a  religious selection.  It is the  boast of the regiment that  they have faithfully carried out the  duke's order.  No Inquest!  Two unidentified men were killed  a few days ago as a result of the  explosion of ninety kegs of blasting  powder, placed in a storehouse  near Kenora, several years ago by  contractors working on a rock cut.  The coroner was summoned, but as  the bodies were virtually blown to  pieces he ordered that they be  buried.    There will be no inquest!

A Return to The Old Order  There is  great   rejoicings   in  the  United States,   though   of a  rather  gruesome nature, says' the Montreal  Witness, among thoughtful people,  that a man has actually been executed for the crime of sending poison  under  the  guise   of medicine   to  a  person whom  he had  wronged and  so' committed   murder, and   what   is  far   more   remarkable,   considering  local   terrorism,   that   another  man  who had shot to death a prosecuting  attorney   in   the   court'in  which he  was   being   tried,   has   been    found  guilty of murder in the first degree.  There is so much maudlin sentiment  abroad   that the   incarceration   of a  murderer is   sure  to bring to him a  shower of letters of sympathy.    I f is  That Monroe Doctrine  It is   beginning to  dawn  on  the  people of the  United  States,   that  the real object of the naval preparations of Germany is to challenge the  Monroe doctrine, says the Colonist.  There are those who have long held  to this view.      Let us suppose what  we think is unlikely, that is  a naval  clash   between   Great  Britain   and  Germany;  let   us   further   suppose,  what is yet more unlikely,   that the  British   fleet   should    be    worsted.  What value would  the Monroe doctrine   have   then?      That   doctrine  owed   its    original    value    to    the  fact   that  Great   Britain   stood   behind it; and it would be mere empty  vaporing now,   if Britannia  did  not  "rule the,waves."    This   is  one .of  fundamental  facts of world-politics  that is often forgotten.     Just make  a little  note  of the  fact  that when  it comes down to things that count,  John Bull  is always   there with the  goods. . :<;..���.

Even  after trial  and  conviction  the   case  may linger  for years  in  the  higher  courts if the   defendant has money  for   defence.      With   this   state."of  affairs crime is becoming continually  more rife.      Some   of the sympathy  for certain classes of crime is due to  the   feeling  that  the  punishment is  not the best  that  could be devised.  This is a matter that should be corrected   as  soon   as   possible.      The  greater part   of this   revolt  against  punishment   is,   however   a morb'd  sympathy   that  is a   menace  to the  nation.      Humanity has  not yet got  beyond the   necessity  for   the dread  of punishment.      Reward  and   punishment in   some  form or other are  indeed, so far as we  know yet, fundamental    necessities   to   progress,  both moral and industrial.      Jt is an  indisputable   fact   that q'uick justice  and the   death   penalty,   as  they are  cidmtnistered   in   Canada  and  Great  Britain, have   kept   us free from the  shockingly large per capita crime of  Our Phenomenonai Growth  The Western Canada Real Estate  Journal of Winnipeg  is responsible  for the following paragraph:   " How  clearly impossible it  is to keep pace  with Canadian  growth  is,   perhaps,  best indicated by the statement that  during 1911 no fewer than 203 new  towns were established on the main I  lines and  branches of  the Canadian!  Pacific,    Canadian     Northern    and  Grand Trunk Pacific, railways.    Two  hundred   and   three   new   towns   in  three   hundred   working   days!

A force  organized on the lines of thc Royal  Northwest Mounted Police would  prove a mighty factor in the keeping  of tlie peace of British Columbia,  and considering the enormous tracts  of almost unknown territory within  our borders, which at present seems  lo orter to evildoers a convenient  asylum, it would appear to be incumbent on the British Columbia  government to take the suggestion  seriously, for there can be little  questioning the fact that if the province had possessed a trained squadron of mounted constabulary to call  upon, this wild west Indian chapter  governor-general of Newfoundland,  in speaking recently of Newfoundland federating with Canada.

Poller,-caretaker of the Snow-  shoe mine, left on Monday for Vancouver to examine real estate purchases he has recently made in that  locality.  Geo.

Morgan and Bert Davies were caught by  falling muck, the former escaping with  a scalp wound; but the latter's injuries  proved more serious, one of his legs  being broken.  Dr. Dickson received his new sidecar, on Wednesday, the first of the  kind in Phoenix. The apparatus can  he attached and detached in a few  minutes and there can be no doubt  that orders for similar motor wheel  side cars will be placed before long.  A. Best, formerly cranium manipulator in the lower town barber shop, and  now located at Hidden creek, writes  uk that his new establishment is about  completed, and within a few days he  hopes to commence relieving the gentlemen of Anyox of their winter  hirsute disfigurement.  Owing to an unfortunate oversight  on our part, the announcement that  the City band was to give another of  its popular open-air recitals on Saturday last was omitted from our columns. For the omission, which was  entirely unintentional, we tender our  apologies to the bandsmen, whose  playing was, however, much appreciated by those who were fortunate  enough to hear it.  The wag who prophesied the rapid  'approach'of the time when "a real live  horse" would be tlie best paying attraction for a circus side show, would find  his prophetic vision nearer realization  in Phoenix than in any town in B. G.  Lust week we announced the entry of  another recruit to the local motor bike  Dissention Over New Road :  The  recent decision   which   fixed  the route of thc  proposed new road  from Phoenix  to Grand  Forks, appears to have  not given  that satisfaction which at first was supposed.  There are. some who now affirm that  the  proposed;  route   is   hot   at   all  suitable and   by no   means' the best  that could be adopted.     In order to  settle the matter,' it was  decided to  call a  public  meeting-  on  Wednesday  last,   when   the  advocates   of  both   routes   were   expected   to be  present   and   state  their case;   but  unfortunately the   rooms', at the.'halt  were engaged that  night for  other  purposes   making   it   impossible  to  hold  theadvertised  meeting.     The  chief complaint registered is that the  former   meeting was not sufficiently  advertised.     One side advocates the  construction  of the  road from Hale  across   the   summit and   over   the  mountains  into  Phoenix, while   the  other   side   pins   their  faith    on  road   from   Hale  through   Hartford  into the town.     It seems a pity that  the proposed  meeting did  not take  place.  ���   ���; ;.���-������  . ���-;-��� :���  Locates at Christina  The following appeared recently in  a Spokane contemporary:   "After an  absence of two and a half years from  Phoenix, B. C, Charles E. King, came  north from. Lti Grande,  Oregon,   on  Wednesday last,' on his way to Christina  lake,   where he has: contracted  with Ole Johnson and Co. to look lifter  the musical and entertaining department   of that   increasingly   popular  summer resort, "Beautiful Christina."  Those of us who knew Mr. King and  the high-class music his name stood  for when he was in Phoenix, feel well  assured and satisfied that an additional  attraction is now made at "Beautiful  Christina."   ''When    Mr.   King    left  Phoenix it was as musical director of  the Colonial Tourist's Opera company,  and as such he  toured British Columbia, staying   several  weeks in stock  productions   at  Vancouver   and  Victoria; thence into the States, finally  winding up with a summer season at  Boise,   Idaho.    While at Boise, Alex.  Strutzel,  another Phoenician,   joined  him, and the  two made their music  famous in the capitor city.   The wonderful violin  playing of Mr. Strutzel  speedily won for him the coveted position of concert master of the Boise  Symphony Orchestra, an aggregation  of all the finest musicians of the State.  Mr. Strutzel eventually was appointed  leader of the orchestra at the Spokane'  Theatre,   where  he  is still   engaged.  While    passing   through   Spokane,  Mr.  King persuaded  his  old partner  to come up for  the summer,  and the  popular violinist will  be heard with  Mr. King at Christina during the best  part of the season.    It is certain that  these two clever musicians will have  a hearty reception from the Boundary  people wheii they again appear before  them in the capacity as entertainers.
