He reports times quiet on the  West Fork, due mainly to uncertainty  concerning the railway, and the long  distance to team ore out to Midway.  The Sally mining crew have two  more cars of ore ready for shipment,  which will be teamed out when the  roads get a little better. The French  colony on the West Fnrkand on Wilk-  ison creek are taking hold in good shape  to clear the land.���Hedley Gazette.  MORESBY ISLAND  MINING PROPERTIES  A.  Ikeda,   Manager   of  Japanese Claims, Visits Phoenix.  A. Ikeda, manager of the firm  of Asvaga & Ikeda, Vancouver, which  is developing a valuable copper-gold  group of claims at Ikeda Hay, Moresby Island, was a guest at" the Hotel  Brooklyn for a few day's this we;:k,  while having a look through the Granby mines. Mr. Ikeda visited Rossland and was on his way lo Butte,  Montana. He is making a trip of inspection of mines for the purpose of  gaining information as to operations  that will assist in developing the Japanese properties of which he is manager. Speaking of thc claims at Ikeda  Bay, he said:  "Hitherto the ore shipments iiiadi-  to the l.adystnith rtnelter have lu-en  restricted to the ore extracted on tin-  O'dinaty course of development. We  hope soon to be mining on a mure extensive scaie next month, when the  installation.of a four-drill compressor  will have been completed. Then we  expect to be in shape to maintain shipments of 2,000 tons monthly. At present we are sending about two.hundred  tons of nre'monthly to the Ladystiiith  reduction works. This ore is hand  sortt-d and the average values based  on the eleven curgoes sent down will  run 1 2 per cent copper, $5 in gold and  sixty ounces of silver per ton, oreasily  $60 per ton. Next month we will  ship our dump of second-grade ore  amounting to about 1,000 tons. Thi>  will run about eight p-?r cent copper  with good gold and silver values.  We employ eighty-seven men, and  the property is being opened up by  means of a series of tunnels, four in  number, which run in on the ore body.  Our workings so lar do not exceed  eight hundred feet. The vein.varies  in size from five feet of high-grade  mineral in the lower tunnel to eleven  feet of ore, mostly low-grade, in -tin-  upper tuonel. We are- now building  ore bunkers for the handling of second-  grade .variety. Our superintendent ig  a white man and members of the same  race will be employed on the air drills."

A quiet but intorestitm event took  place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs.  Noble Binns, Traii, at live u'clock on  Tuesday afternoon, when the marriage  ceremonies were performed of four  well-known residents of Phoenix, being the nuptials of Rev. Samuel Lun-  die, pastor of St. Andrews' Presbyterian  church, to Miss Kate Clark, sister of  Mrs. Noble Binns, and James J. De-  war, of the Huntei-Kendrick company,  to "Miss Christena Lundie, sister of  Rev. Mr. Lundie. The ceremonies  were performed in the presence of only  immediate friends of the contacting  parties, who were unattended. After  partaking of a dainty wedding breakfast the happy couples left for Seattle,  Victoria and other coast cities on a  two weeks' honeymoon, and on their  return will take up residence in Phoenix. The newly wedded Phoenicians  are among the most popular people of  the town, and a host of friends join  the Pioneer in hearty   .- ongratulalions.  Extend Kettle River Line.  W. P. Tierney, the railroad con  tractor, arrived in the Boundary from  Nelson this week for the purpose of  starting work for the continuation of  the construction of the Kettle River  Valley railroad northward. This will  now be actively prosecuted through tin-  summer, by the end of which steel  should have been laid for at least 100  miles north of Grand Forks.  Dr. Spankie, of Greenwood was in  town on Monday.  Mrs. Murdock Mclntyre is visiting  friends in Vancouver.  Martin McHale left for Seattle last  week for a month's holiday.  Mrs. Dunn, formerly of Phoenix, is  renewing acquaintances in town.  P. Boyles, diamond drill expert, was  in Spokane for a few days this week.  Andrew Johnston returned on Tuesday from a two weeks' visit to Spokane.  John Appleby, contractor, was a  passenger to Grand Forks on Thursday  morning.  Dr. McLean was called to Grand  Forks on Monday to assist in a serious  operation.  Mrs. J. A. Sampson and children  left Thursday on a visit to friends at  Salt Lake City.  Mrs. W. Hughes and children went  to SpoKane on Thursday to spend a  couple of weeks with friends.  T. F. Trimm, representing the Spo  kane Chronicle, was here for a few  days last week in the interests of that  publication.  George Taylor left on Thursday for  a month's trip to Spokane, Coeur d'  Alenes, and Wallace, Idaho, where he  is interested in mining properties.  J. F. McDougall went to New Westminster to attend a meeting of the I.  O.O.F. grand lodge, as representative  of Snowshoe Lodge,  No. 46, Phoenix.  Mrs. O. Isaacson, and sons Frank,  Arthur and Roy, and daughters Ellen  and Alice, left Thursday for Tacoma,  Wash., where they will reside for some  time.  Mrs. J. Tait left for New Westminster on Saturday as a representative of  I'lioenix Rebekah Lodge, No. 14,  I.O.O.F., at the meeting of the grand  lodge.  W. C. Thomas, local manager for  the Dominion Copper company, was  up from Boundary Falls on Monday  and had a look through the company's mines here.  E. Spraggett, of Grand Forks, was  in town yesterday and mported having  picked strawberries in the valley on  Wednesday. The berries this year, he  says, are a fine sample and promise to  be a gnod crop.  J. W. Hannam spent a few days of  last week at Bossburg and Matcus,  Wash., purchasing a supply of hay for  his ranch for next winter. Mr. Hannam reports crops in the Kettle river  valley, over the line, looking well and  growing rapidly.  Ore is being taken out at the Bounty Fraction, a Wallace Mountain high  grade pioperty.  The big tanks at tbe Rawhide are  being kept filled with water and in  shape for resuming.  Seven men are now working at the  Sally mine and another car of or: will  soon be ready for shipment.  Granby stock took a jump during  the past week, $100 being now bid.  This price is $15 higher than the stock  was quoted before the announcement  of the recent dividend.  Another rich stringer was struck this  week in the E. P. U. by the workmen driving the tunnel which is now in  a distance of 900 feet. The assay is  said to have run about $145.  A quarter interest in the Ajax mineral claim and all of the Munster mineral claim, both in Franklin camp, are  to be sold at the government office,  Grand Forks, next Monday, to satisfy  a judgment of $406.80.  ,.' Fire on the route of the airline from  the Dominion Copper compressor; to  the Rawhide mine on Thursday burned  the supports of the main which fell  and was broken. The repairs, however, were quickly made.  The Granby company last week received a new motor from Pittsburg  which they have installed at the Gold  Drop on the 20-inch gauge, the same  as is in use in the Curlew. The necessary change in trackage has been made  and horse locomotion done away with.  Among the improvements made at  the B. C. Copper company's smelter  while out of commission was the erection of a new custom ore bin, the installation of a 24X36-inch crusher, and  of a belt conveyor connecting the custom ore bin with the sample mill. The  increased efficiency has been much  complimented.  The installation of a new aerial tram  line from the store powder magazine  to the. thaw, for the purpose of conveying powder, has just been completed  by"the*Granby company. The line is  1400 feet in length and the .tram is  operated by a seven-horse,power ..mo  tor. This will do away with a team  of hores which has been kept steadily  employed in conveying the daily supply of powder.  The Oro Denoro mine of the B.C.  Copper company, in Summit camp,  has been making a conspicuous showing in the shipping list since resuming  a few weeks ago. Fifteen to 17 cars  of ore are now being shipped daily to  the company's smelter at Greenwood,  and its shipments of 3,270 tons last  week are more than equal to its entire  tonnage in 1907. Sixty men are now  working in two" shifts at the mine and  it is expected the tonnage will continue  to increase.  PROSPECTS  ARE BRIGHT  Says Manager Thomas  of Dominion Copper  Definite Information is Expected  by Wednesday Next  VV. C. Thomas, local manager for  the Dominion Copper company, received a message yesterday from' the  New York officials of- the comp*"1)'  that they had been delayed ��� .white <n  route to the Boundary, and are now in  Salt Lake City'arid have postponed  their visit to the properties here for  the present at least. It is.thought tho  disorganized transcontinental train service has been the cause of their delay.  Mr. Thomas left today for Salt Lako  City to confer with M. M. Johnston,  consulting engineer, and other official:-,  and expects definite information as to  the resuming of the Dominion Copper  will be given out about next Wednesday. He considers the prospects tor  the resuming of the company at: an  early date are of the brightest.  New C.P.R. Schedule  A new time schedule will go into  effect on this branch of the C.P.R. on  Monday, June 15. The train for  Eholt will leave at 2.ro p.m. and returning will arrive at 6 p.m.  Biz Two Days' Excursion.  The excursion to Rossland on June  24th promises to be the most popular  trip of its kind ever held from Phoenix. Phoenix Lodge No. 47, S. H. &  E. F. have chartered a special train  which will leave Phoenix at 5 a.m. on  June 24, and returning will leave Ross-  lank at 4 p.m. on June 25. This will  allow a full day's visit at Rossland,  where elaborate preparations have been  made for a picnic and big day of  sports. There will also be an excursion from Nelson to Rossland the  same day.  ANOTHER CLAIM  ADDED TO WOODBURN  Sieven   Drill   Compressor  To  Be Installed for Tunnelling.  The Phoenix Mining, Smelling and  Development company, limited, received their incorpoiation papers from  the Provincial government on Saturday, and during the past week 18,000  shares of stock have been sold locally.  'The company have had surveyors at  work.on,the properties for a few days,  arid another' fulf claim was added on  Tuesday. The addition lies across the  Great Northern lailway, and immediately below the Woodburn claims, in  Wellington camp, and is said to have  good indications of ore.  Arrangements are being made to install a seven-drill compressor plant for  the driving of the tunnel, work upon  which will start at once. :There is already some S5 feet of shafting on the  Woodburn property, 60 feet of which  is on the copper ledge, and 25 feet on  a quartz ledge. It is the intention of  the company to prosecute vigorous development work until they have a  shipping mine.

The Scientific American now an  nouncesthat a solution of the problem  has apparently been successfully made  by J!   Ferreol   Monnot.    Instead  of that it may  present less  resistance to  drawing one metal over  the other, he  welds the two together.  Broadly stated, his process consists  in thoroughly cleaning a base or core  of the steel; bringing it up to a welding  temperature without per mil ting access  j of air and consquent oxidation during  heating; contacting with it on the cleaned surfaces a highly heated, or "super  molten," mass of molten copper; segre  low as io%, by volume, of the steel.  If, however, the wire is to be used  for the transmission of electric current,  the coating is made  heavier, in  order  C'il^l'l'.L.

Since leaving Phoenix on May 2nd,  we have visited a number of places of  importance in the course of our peri-  grinations, including Spokane, North  Yakima, Tacoma, Seattle, Vancouver,  Wash., Portland and Astoria. Oregon.  Laying aside the nowsurity or news-  gathering habit (we hope for all time)  we have enjoyed our experiences thus  far and have taken time to appreciate  what we have seen.  rel  Intrl  being a most valuable ahtise ptli  ferment, nutritive a.rd soothing demulcent.  Glycerine plays an Important part in  Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery in  the cure of indigestion, dyspepsia and  weak stomach, attended by sour risings,  heart-burn, foul breath, coated tongue,  poor appetite, gnawing feeling in stomach, biliousness and kindred derangements of the stomach, liver and bowels.  iiesides curing all the above distressing  ailments, the"*Golden Medical Discovery"  is a specific for all diseases of tho mucous  nier-ibranrf*, as catarrh, whether of the  nasal passages or ot the stomach, bowels  or pelvic organs. Even in its ulcerative  stages it will yield to this sovereign remedy If its use be persevered in. In Chronic  Cr��t:irrh of the Nasal passages, it is well,  while taking the "Golden Medical Discovery" for the necessary constitutional  treatment, to cleanse the passages freely  two or three times a day with Dr. Sage's  Catarrh Remedy. This thorough course  of treatment generally cures the worst  cases.

Uncle Jim Hill  has completed his tunnel under the city  and finished his fine- union station for  his Great Northern and Northern  Pacific railways. These roads, by ti,e  way, were taxed to their utmost by the  Meet traffic, but they showed that they  would be able to handle the multi-  Hides that will have Scuttle as their  Mecca next year when the Alaska-  Yukon exposition is to beheld.  Seattle is built on a side hill���a bad  location for a large city. But the  municipality is spending millions to  equalize tin; steepest grades, buildings  and streets alike beinj> brought to the  new levels. It is an undertaking probably never before attempted in a city  of 250,000 people. The street railway  system radiates in every direction for  miles, and extends even to Tacoma���  but the city is growing so fast that the  trolley and cable lines cannot handle  the traffic offering even at ordinary  times.  Many men have made fortunes in  the last few years, in the prosperity  which has been shining here for a  series of years, even though business  has been somewhat quiet since last  fall. A personal friend of the writer,  who had perhaps but a few- hundred  dollars a few years ago, is now easily  worth a quarter of a million. Evi-  dently he had what is known as the  "Seattle Spirit."  SM   .  The Milwaukee railway is actually  building into Seattle as fast as money  can do it, and the Union Pacific and  our own C.P.R. will undoubtedly do  likewise. This will give an idea of  what Seattle is likely to grow to with  the Hill and Harriman lines, the Milwaukee and C.P.R as feeders.  We met a few old Boundary men,  too, in Seattle. R. H. Karatofsky���  who had become a benedict since leaving Phoenix a year ago,���shows his  kindly feeling for his old Boundary  home by calling his business the Phoenix Jewelry Co. "Bob" has a store on  Pike street and appears to be flourishing, which his friends will be pleased  to hear. Elmer D. Hall, formerly in  business with the writer in Phoenix,  was in Seattle, coming over from Aberdeen to meet us. He now owns a  linotyping plant and is doing very well  in  the  Gray's   Harbor   city.    He  in  quired after all the old Phoenicians  We also met Chester P. F.ee, a mining  engineer that few new in the Boundary  know. All the same Mr. Lee was in  the Boundary in the early days, being  consulting engineer for the Spokane &  Great Northern Mining Co. Thai  company, long since defunct, operated  the Providence aud Skylark mines, and  got ore so rich in the early nineties  that they packed H on the backs, of  mules 70 miles to Marcus, to ship to  the Everett smelter���and then made  money on it. There was then no railway of any kind in the Boundary. But  the price of silver dropped almost out  of sight in 1893, and the claims were  dropped.  ...\V. B. Wl'LLCOX.

We were fortunate enough to be in  Seattle at the time of the visit of Uncle  Sam's "Doves of Peace," as President  Roosevelt termed the Atlantic battle  ship fleet when he started the great  fighting craft on their long journey  around Cape Horn to the Pacific seaboard. We were not looking for battle ships���had not lost any, in fact-���  but took   in   the show,   just the same.  It was the greatest occasion Seattle  bad ever seen, and its residents rose to  the occasion, as did also about 200,-  000 visitors from Montana, Idaho,  Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Of course, the town was  crowded, jammed aimost to suffocation in fact, to have a glimpse of the  formidable dogs of war, over a dozen  of them. They paraded in the magnificent Elliott bay, fronting the city  and then the next day there was a five  mile parade through the main business streets, with dozens of bands,  thousands of bluejackets, regulars, militia, fraternal organizations, etc. They  were wined and dined and feted till  their throats and stomachs must have  ached excessively���in short they were  one and all given the heartiest sort of  welcome. It was well worth witness  ing, as the other 199,999 seemed to  think also.  MS  We visited one of the battleships,  as did nearly everyone. It was the  Ohio, and we saw the whole thing, fore  and aft ��� from figurehead to rudder.  After boarding the Ohio, as we went  up a companion way, the strains of the  "Merry Widow" waltz came floating  down from the gun deck, played by  the Ohio's magnificent band of 25 or  30 pieces. On the deck were perhaps  250 bluejackets, waltzing with themselves; and it was Sunday, too. Tbe  vessel which carries a compliment of  over 800 men, had also hundreds of  visitors, the small craft in the harbor  doing an immense business in carrying them back and forth, it being a  veritable harvest for them, which they  proceeded to reap with all due diligence.  MS  Those 12-inch guns on the Ohio  certainly appeared formidable, and  when supplemented by dozens of others  in the ten, eight and six inch class, together with twelve or fifteen other floating arsenals of as large or larger fighting capacity, one wondered wether  Captain Richard Pearson Hobson, (he  of osculatory fame) knew what he was  talking about in his recent magazine  articles on the unpreparedness of the  American navy for war, for instance,  with Japan. Doubtless, however, Hob-  son is familiar with his subject. Those  twelve-inch rifles can throw a projectile  a mile for every inch; so that, if the  |aps have 14-inch rifles, they can keep  out of harm's way, and exact heavy tribute from the entire Pacific coast.  And there you have it.  ���IS  It is now about three years since we  visited Seattle, and wonderful progress  has been made in tbe development of {.fagt&ag&KamBtomBmTtkWO*^^  TWO BEAUTIFUL WOMEN WHO  ^PR^G CATARRH BY TAiiaiVG PE-RU-NA,  Spring Fever Is Spring Ctti^i^h���Nb^lnjf *f)Rote., One  of Strength Like Spring Catarrh;.
