Important  Mines  Will   Soon  Be in Operation.  ��� ���������������������'  COMING AND GOING  It is now definitely known that the  plan announced some time ago, and  published in the Pioneer, by which the  Dominion Copper Co. takes over the  properties of the Montreal & "Boston  Consolidated, has materialized, that a  meeting of those interested in the east  has been held, and new officers have  been chosen. D. I). Mann is president of the new company, and \V. H.  Moore is secretary. The names ofthe  other officials have not yet been given  out.  The meaning of this, which was. received by wire here this week from the  east, is that the Brooklyn group of  mines in this camp, and Boundary  Falls smelter will once more be operated to the fullest capacity, and in fac  the capacity increased. The exact  date for the reopening of the mines is  not known, but it is confidently be  lieved to be within a few weeks, and  possibly sooner.  The following dispatch has been  published regarding the new arrangements of Montreal & Boston :  New York, June 21.���The . new  management of the Montreal & Boston  Consolidated Mining & Smelting Company has announced the sale'of -its  mines and property to the Dominion  Copper Company and that the latter is  about to make an issue of bonds to  amount of $1,500,000 to discharge the  [last debts of the Montreal & Boston  and for further development and improvement.  GRANT MORE COUNTRY LICENSES.  Bauarfary  Creek  Commissioner*   Mel   Here  on Wednesday.  Wednesday afternoon the board of  license commissioners for lhe Boundary Creek license district met in  Black's hotel, pursuant to adjournment  at Grand Forks,, there being present  Chairman Ernest Miller, Arthur W.  Lawderand M. D, White, all of Grand  Forks, and the chief license inspector,  D. J. Darraugh, of Eholt. The following were granted renewals of retail  liquor licenses: J. A. McMaster for  Union hotel, Eholt; J. A. Rendell,  Northern hotel,'" Eholt; Norman II.  Luce, Summit hotel, Eholt; Thomas  Wake, Boundary Falls hotel, Boundary  Falls; M. W. Ludlow, Windsor hotel,  Denoro; Hans 1\ ter Thompson, Yen-  dome'hotel, Anaconda. J. P. Black  withdrew his application for a lie^n e  for the Columbia hotel, Eholt, and C.  H. Thomet withdrew his for the Oakland hotel, Midway. The board adjourned to meet again June 24th, at 11  am. at Grand Forks.  The most knotty question the hoard  has had to deal with was whether two  licenses shutild be given at Cascade,  the inspector recommending but a  single license there. Chas. H.Thomas,  who has conducted lhe Cascade hotel  there for seven or eight years, ;uked  for one, and J. A. Bertois, who secured one last year for his B. C. hotel,  also wished a license. Altogether the  present payroll at Cascade runs fiom  40 to 50 men. In the early boom days  there were 17 licenses.  So far in a week four meetings have  been held of the commissioners, with  another for today, when the Cascade  business is to be settled. At Tuesday's meeting at Grand Forks, the  Cascide matter brought out an array  of legal talent. J. A. McDonald, ol  Rossland, leader of the provincial opposition, and H. C. Hannington, of  Grand Forks, was there to look out for  the interests of Mr. Bertois. while C.  A. Sutton, of Grand Forks, represented  Mr. Thomas.

Court ol Revision Held.  Thursday the annual court of revision, to hear objections, if any, to the  tax rolls as made by Assessor Mathison, for the year 1905, was held at the  city hall. Aldermen Birnie, Brown  and Carson were present, the former  being chosen as chairman. One or  two objections to the assessment were  made, hut the court finally decided  that the city assessor had placed  equitable valuations and confirmed the  entire roll.  The assessment of the city for 1905,  according to sub-divisions, is as follows :  Imp.  Rmiibergur. . .$ 4(1,41H)  Old Ironsides.

Since the opening of Ihe new bowl  ing alleys late last week, R. H. Kara-  tofsky reports that interest in the sport  is increasing every day, the alleys being patronized almost all the time by  the young, the old and the middle  aged. Mr. Karatofsky says that he  does not wish to deprive the ladies of  a chance to enjoy this healthful exercise, and will set apart Tuesday afternoons lor the exclusive use of the fair  sex. Next Tuesday will be the first  ladies' day, and there will be no charge  of any kind on this opening day for  the use of the alleys by the ladies,  the hours being from two to six.  The ioneer was informed yesterday that Patrick J."' Dermody, formerly  foreman of the Granby mines, but latterly occupying a similar position at  the 'Providence mine, was reposing behind the steel bars of the 'city jail at  Greenwood. Not only that, but he  declined to come forth, seemingly enjoying his surroundings to the utmost.  In addition to this, John Beck, the  new foreman for the Providence, was  arrested for assault by one Angrignon,  a'former employee of the mine, and  also put in jail, but was bailed out. All  told, there were half a dozen or more  miners accepting the hospitality of the  Gieenwood bastile for a time.  It all came about because of the  sudden change In management last  week, by which W. S. Macy was made  managing director, in place of Mark  F. Madden, of Chicago, and W. M,  Law secretary, in place of W. T. Hunter, of Greenwood. When this was  done .Mr. Dermody was told that no  special change in the operation of the  mine was intended, but that he must  take orders from Mr. Macy. When  the latter asked for the paysheets to  settle with ihe miners, Mr. Dermody  refused to give them up, but.he and  Mi. Hunter certified to them, and the  latter gave his personal checks for the  amounts, taking an assignment from  lhe men. Then something was doing  without delay. Mr. Macy discharged  Mr. Dermody, and appointed John  Beck in his stead. Later Mr. Dermody insisted on staying on the company's ground, and was arrested for  trespass. When no charge-was made  against him, he A'as told he could go,  but after consulting with Solicitor Hallett, he decided that he enjoyed the  atmosphere of the Greenwood strong  room so much that he would stay there  for a time.  The Greenwood directors and shareholders wish to see the rich Providence  mine worked and pay dividends once  more, as it did when they conducted it  before, and as it has failed to do since  the Chicago people took the management last fall. They also wish to be  given a square deal all around, and  assert they have not had it, by a good  deal. Having allowed things to run  in Hhat unsatisfactory way for months,  they are determined now to take hold  themselves within the limits of the  law, and force a square deal. The  Madden end has not been heard from  yet, but doubtless will be shortly, and  more developments will come up.  G. W. Cornish has bonded the  Capital Prize, adjoining the Helen.  The Providence mine is once-more  on the shipping iist, and the Skylark  is shipping again this week.  It has been decided not to make  any morr. shipments from the Last  Chance for a month or two, but to  place all the men on development,  Frederic Keffer, manager of the  ���British Columbia Copper Co., was in  the city last Saturday on his way to  New York, where he goes to meet the  directors of the company.  Unwatering of the Jewel, in Long  Lake camp, has been finished, and the  property sampled by engineers for the  LeR'oi No. 2 at Rossland, with a view  to. taking a bond.  ,  On the Crescent and Preston, adjoining, there is great activity, and  systematic development is being prosecuted on both properties. Both mines  will probably do some shipping before the summer i.s out.  A rumor was current last week that  the Granby Co. had made an offer of  $480,000 for the Brooklyn group in  case the Montreal & Boston capitalists-  did not take up their p?st due bond.  No confirmation of the report could be  secured.   ���'���,������  This week the Grea- Northern  placed in use the first of the new and  larger steel ore cars, for the run i;e  tween Phoenix and the Granby smel  ter. " They are built to hold 50 tons  each, but will easily carry ten or fifteen  tons more, and are labeled with the  V., V. and E. title.  Walter G. Perkins, formerly head  assayer at the Granby smelter, and  later assistant superintendent of the  Northport smelter has accepted a posi  tion as superintendent of a new smel  ter to be built in Nevada by capitalists  for whom John H. MacKenzie, formerly manager of the LeRoi, is acting.  BUILD FROM  MIDWAY WEST  Said to Be the Plan of the  V., V. & E.  Steel Ordered Laid on Line  From Curlew.  Whether anything is done at Ottawa  or not regarding the V., V. & E. charter, it now sterns certain that the link  in the line from Midway to Oroville  will be constructed without further delay. Porter Brothers have received  orders to lay the steel on the 14 mile  stretch from Curlew to Midway, as  soon as possible. This piece was  graded last summer, but the iron was  hot put down then. Recently the  railway physician has been in Midway  looking up a site for a construction  hospital, contractors have been renting  buildings there, and the long desired  and long deferred work is, seemingly,  about to begin.  The Pioneer is informed that the  construction on this side of the line  has been let to J. \V. Stewart, and  that the work will be in charge of Mr.  Stewart's partner and brother-in-law,  Patrick Welch, who hadcharge of the  construction on the Phoenix extension  last year. >.  As to the construction of the line  from Midway to Greenwood and thence  to a connection with the present Phoenix branch at Summit camp, nothing  has been learned, but this is also believed to be part of the programme.  PLANS FOR THE  MINING ENGINEERS.  American Institute Here Next  Thursday.  Next week Thursday the party of  American Institute of Mining Engineers will visit the Boundary, on their  way to Yictoria, where the annual  meeting will be held, followed by a  trip to Alaska and the Klondike. Before coming to the Boundary the party  of from 100 to 200 will visit Nelson  and Rossland each for a day. In  Nelson they will be given a trip on  Kootenay lake, and in Rossland they  will see some of the mines and perhaps  visit the Trail smelter.  Arriving in Grand Forks early  Thursday morning, the special solid  train of Pullmans will be switched to  the Granby smeller, and Supt. Hodges,  of the Granby Co., will have charge of  the party. They will be shown through  the extensive reduction works, and be  served with a lunch at the smelter,  after which a special train i.s expei ted  to bring the engineers and their wives  to I'hoenix, arriving here early in ihe  afternoon. When the mines here have  been seen, in the course of two or  three hours, the party will return to the  Granby smelter, and late that night go  on to the coast. If possible, a banquet will be served iu their honor at  Grand Folks, and Mr. Hodges, a  member of the institute, will go to  Victoria with the party, and attend tlie  .sessions.  MINERS' UNION BUYS OPERA HOUSE SITE  Selects Corner ���! Kmb Kub  Hill Aveaae  ���at ScbMl Street.  No small amount of interest has  been shown locally over the location  of the new opera house and hall, to be  erected this summer by . Phoenix  Miners' Union." After several sites  had been considered, the choice narrowed down to the northwest corner  of Montezuma street and Dominion  avenue, or the northeast corner of  Knob Hill avenue and School street,  each site haying exactly 50x100 feet.  The first named would have cut into  the skating rink, and the latter is opposite the public school. The first  site would have cost the union $300,  and the latter $500, these figures being  nominal.  In order to settle the matter so that  every member of the union should  have a voice, it was decided at last  Saturday night's meeting of the union  to have a ballot on the question. This  was taken by the union on Tuesday,  and resulted in 43 votes being cast in  favor of the Dominion avenue site and  1 s 1 votes for the other location, which  was owned by A. F. McMillan.  Thursday Mr. McMillan informed  the Pioneer that the deed foe the property had been made out and is in the  bank, and part of the purchase price  has been paid. The contract calls for  the  beginning   of   work  on the new: drawn   up   in  a manner  that would  Will Vltit R��mWIc.  At a regular meeting of the Phoenix  Athletic Association, held Wednesday  evening, it was decided to accept the  invitation to go to Republic on July  4th with a hose team and compete for  the $50 and $25 prizes for hose reel  racing. It is expected also that a team  from Grand Forks, and possibly one  from Greenwood, will be present, the  Greenwood band also going. A special  train will be run from Phoenix to accommodate those who wish to attend  the celebration in Uncle Sam's country on that day. The team that will  visit Republic is expected to be made  up of the following: H. A. Munroe,  W. X. McDonald, Percy Wilkinson, J.  O.Church, Palmer Cook, Wm. Hower,  Bert Samworth, Jas. Morgan, W. J.  Prendergast and Frank Kester, with  O. N. Galer as manager.  The association decided not to accept the invitation to go to Nelson on  Dominion day' and compete in the  hose reel races, for the reason that it  was thought that the   rules  had  been  building within sixty days, and that  the building shall cost not less than  $6,000. It is more than likely that a  buildinu costing $8,000 will be erected. It will face on three streets,  Knob Hill, School and Aetna avenue,  and be within 100 feet ofthe Pioneer.  specially favor the Nelson team.  Lateit Fried lo Metali.

A Toronto syndicate has closed a  deal lor the Windsor group', in the  Lardeau, for $50,000. 'I'he ore is  claimed to average $50 per ton in  gold.  A nugget of gold weighing two  ounces was found on the Greenhorn  property near Nelson last week. Considerable local excitement was caused  by the rich find.  The use of loose blasting powder is  to be discontinued in the mines ofthe  Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co. - One of  the permitted explosives sanctioned  by the British government is to. be  substituted, probably "roburite."

We look to see  Halcyon one of the most popular resorts in the West within twelve months  time, both for the sick and the well.";  Speaking of East Kootenay editors,  they must be a flourshing lot, for no  sooner does Simpson start on a trip  through the province than Lowery, he  ofthe Fernie Ledge���who is throwing  the hot shot into Mayor Stork 52 times  a year because the latter al tempts to  boycott the Ledge���also takes a run  pretty well all over the Kootenays.  Then Fred Smyth, of the Moyie Leader  which has recently enlarged ; nd thereby proved the prosperity of the place,  has hied himself to the .Portland  Exposition to see what is going on in  the Trail. All. this is fairly good evidence that, things are running smooth  with the scribes of East Kootena>���  and niay it tun even smoother, is our  wish.

V. & E., and if possible prevent that Hill railway from  going into the Similkaineen district, it  unleaded itself of the following, which  is surely ample proof of the broad-  minded and public spirited style of its  utterances:  "U'e have seen a great city grow up  in the United States through Canadian-  made gold. We have seen Seattle  merchant?, gasping for breath one day,  waxing fat and insolent the.next, when  the golden millions of the Yukon were  poured into iheir waiting laps. Are we  going to sit idly by while they wax  fatter and more insolent through the  riches of the Similkameen being diverted to them, through the influence  of traitorous newspapers, struggling  to get out of the pawnshop, and pur-  chaseable politicians? Surely not. The  Province would rather see the Similkameen remain undeveloped for another  generation than that its wealth should  go to prop up the fortunes of people  on the other side of the line. Let us  not forget fhe bulldog of the British  flag and the grand old motto that  ought to come home with peculiar force  to every business man in Vancouver  to day:  " 'What we have we'll hold.'

An Elegant Summer Book.  "Restful Recreation Resorts," the  1905 summer book issued by the passenger department of the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company, contains  4S pages and cover. The book is  printed on heavy white paper, 58 cuts  being used to illustrate the trips up  and down the Columbia river, to the  mountains, beaches, inland resorts and  fountains of healing. The cover is  in three colors, adding materially to  the beauty and effectiveness of the  publication, which may be had by  sending two cents in stamps to A. L.  Crai", Portland, Ore. It is a good  thing to send to your friends in the  East who expect to visit the Lewis &  Clark Exposition.  W. L. Hull wa* connected with the  press of the Boundary several years  ago and was well known in this section; |  but he reformed, got married and went  to Chicago lo live. In the, Windy City  he organized a mining company, and  recently, Mr. Hull has been visiting  in the Boundary again. Here is what  he says about the claims .of Franklin  camp, a section now rapidly coming  to the notice of the investing public.  "I was five weeks in the camp and  visited all the properties of any prominence. I have had assays made which  convince me that Franklin will rank  considerably higher than any camp of  the Boundary for surface showings.  At present the McKinley is the leading claim of the camp. They have an  enormous amount of ore in sight in  their surface cuts, and there is nothing  in the formation to indicate that this  ore will not go down. The crosscut  tunnel is now on the verge of reaching  the ore in piace; in fact they have gone  through a stringer ol good ore two and  one half feet in thickness, which is evidently an off-shoot from the main  vein. I have no hesitation in predi^ ���  ing that this will be a wonderful property.  "On the same mountain are other  promising claims which only need development to prove their worth. Among  these I might name the Ajax, Jumbo,  I. X.-'L:, Bryan, Pay Ore and Gold  King-  "On Banner mountain the Banner  claim has had the most development  work. It shows 32 feet of ore of an  average value of $8 per ton in a tunnel  2 20 feel in length, and in one of the  surface cuts "in a high grade shoot ol  ore smelter returns gave va'ues  of $66. 'I'he Bullion, adjoining the  Banner, is a crown granted claim that  has the same lead and shows values.  The Aldie, Homestakty. Deadwood,  May, Big Three and, Annex all need  development work, but have good surface showings. North of the Banner  the Alpha has been opened up this  spring to a certain extent. The lead  shows 92 feet in width and over 800  feet in length, with plenty of copper in  sight and good values in the quartz.  Below this the Verde arid Hennikin  both have nice surface showings.  "Some of the highest grade ore of  the camp comes from the Gloucester  claim, on Gloucester creek slope of  Banner mountain, A tunnel is now  in 140 feet and will probably reach the  vein within between 20 and 30 feet  more ol work. A shaft is down 50  feet in the vein. and the bottom is  high grade copper ore. Three men have  been working steadily on this claim  since last September and are steadily  pu hing the tunnel ahead. In the  vicinity of the Gloucester are the G.  H., Golden Age, Mountain Lion, Tiger  and Montezuma claims, all of which  have surface showings to wairant extensive development work.  "As to the camp in general, there is  plenty of timber for mining purposes,  water in abundance for both domestic  use and the development of electrical  power, and in general exceptionally ad  vantageous circumstances for economical mining by means of tunneling."  Daniel D. Bldwell, Supervisor, Notary Publlo and  a member of I. 0. O. P.. 160 Pearl street, Buffalo,  N.Y., writes:  "Baring used Peruna for a short time, I deilre to  write you as to my present condition.  ���' When I obtained Peruna I was suffering from  chronic Indigestion and kidney and bladder,  trouble. It seemed to help the circulation at once. 1  My digestion Is now perfect and my kidneys and  bladder do not trouble me In any way. In tact, I]  give Peruna the entire credit.  "Hoping that your remedy will reach all sufferers  In a itmilar case, and thanking you, I remain,"���  Daniel D. Bldwell, N. P.  mUmmr  >s*  m  WMMh  WM��:  <%Miik  W-  W&  Mi'ji  m  U.  Wiliii  %  Hi  South American  Cured by Pe-ru-na.  gjSO D'Al  Dangerous/ Kidney Diseases  Cured.  At the appearance of the first symptom of kidney trouble, Peruna should  be taken.  ' TalJ remedy strikes at once the very  root of the disease.  It at once relieves the catarrhal kidneys of the stagnant blood, and prevents  the escape ot serum from the blood.  , Peruna stimulates the kidneys ,'io  excrete from the blood the accumulating poison, and thus prevents the convulsions which are sure to follow if the  poisons are allowed to remain.  . It gives great vigor to the, heart's  action and digestive system, both of  .which are apt to fail rapidly in this  disease.  ' Peruna cures catarrh of the kidneys  ���imply because it cures catarrh wherever located. '   0 '  A remedy that  cures all the catarrhal derangements,of the kidneys should certainly be considered a household  necessity.   Peruna is such a  Temedy.  A Prominent Merchant Restored  1     to Health By Pe-ru-na.  Mr. John Niirimo, 215 Lipplncott St.,  Toronto, Can., a prominent merchant  of that city, and also a member of the  Masonic Order, writes:  "/ have been In poor health generally  for over four years. When I caught a  bad cold last winter it settled In the  bladder and kidneys, causing serious  trouble. I took two greatly advertised  kidney remedies without getting the  desired results.  "Peruna is the only remedy which  was really of any  benefit to me.   it  Count Alfonso d' Aljores, of 2S7 Plaza  del Torro, Buenos Ayres, South America,  while visiting in Chicago, wrote from 217  Cleveland avenue, that city, as follows:  "I used Peruna a short time ago to build up my  system, which was all run down from overwork,  worry and a cold which had settled in my back and  kidneys, causing me serious annoyance and trouble.  "Whoa I returned homo from work atnigntjl was so er-i  hausted and worn out, together wi*h the pain in my back,  that I felt I would never be able to take up tbe burden of,  lite again in the morning, but when morning came I  would get out Bomehow. This dragging through lifo continued for a couple of months, when I decided I would  take Peruna.  "lam glad to state that I found It Just the medicine for  me. in a couple ot months 1 was restored to perfect  health and strength, and my work was no longer a  burden. I therefore endorse your medicine as worthy  of the confidence of the sick. "���Alfonso d' Aljores.  seemed to act in perfect harmony with  the system, eliminating the poisons,  stopping the ravages of the disease  and gradually restoring me to health  and strength.  We have on file many thousand testimonials like the ones given here. We  can only give our readers a slight  glimpse ot the vast array of unsolicited  endorsements we are receiving every  month. No other physician in the <  world has received such a volume of  enthusiastic letters of thanks as Dr,  Hartman for Peruna.
