Promising Group at Beaverdell  Secretary   N.   J.   Carson   of   the  Phoenix Mining,  Smelting and Development    company,   returned    lo  town on   Tuesday   from  one of his.  periodical trip's  to the   Duncan property,   near   Beaverdell,   which  his  company   have   under  bond.      The  contract    for   development,    which  was awarded to Angclo  Luciani, is  now   completed and another is contemplated in the near future, but for  the  present,   says  Mr.   Carson,   all  our   energies will  be  centred in extracting   ore   in   readiness   for   the  advent of lhe railroad, which  is expected to reach the mine long before  .the snow flies.   The average returns  per ton, according to   assays at the  Granby  company's smelter,   are 93  dzs.   in silver  and   a trace  of gold,  probably 70c,   which   with  the lead  conteiits   amounts   to  a  little   over  sixty   dollars v per  ton.

There is scarcely an issue published nowadays of that celebrated  and highly-authoritative paper, the  Boston Commercial, DtirwHat some  favorable reference appears in. its  columns, relative to the Granby  company's prospects. Without exception all its replies to Granby  stockholders are couched in the  most optimistic tone.  Poe-Campbell  Mi.ss   Helen   Campbell,   formerly  on   the stafl   of   the   Phoenix  posl-  ofiice, was married  on Wednesday,  June   19th,   to   Ralph    G.    Poc    ol  Princeton.       The    ceiemony   took  place at the residence of the biidc's  brother,    J.    Campbell,    in   Grand  Porks, the Rev. J. McKee,   1'iesby-  lerian   minister,   tying   the   m.iiil.il  knot.     The   bride,  who was   handsomely  gowned    in    a   champagne  colored   travelling   dress,   was    attended   by   her  sister,   Miss   Katie  Campbell   of  Montreal,    while   the  groom's     attendant   was    D.    W.  McDonald of Greenwood.   After the  wedding repast,   the newly-married  couple left for Spokane en  route for  Princeton,   where  they will   reside.  They   were   the  recipients of many  pretty   and     useful    presents    from  friends   and   relatives.     Among  the  gues'ts ** pres"en'C   wertP'Mrs. ~W7"Al  Tatham, Mrs. Thos. Richards, Mrs.  R.   Silverthorn   and   Bert.   Tatham,  all of Phoenix.  Reports of the great lo.ss of life  during the recent Alaska eruption  are greatly exaggerated.  The following interesting item  was taken from a recent issue of the  Johannesburg Sunday Times, one  the most prominent papers in the  Transvaal. Alfred Pickthall, the inventor, is a brother of John Pickthall, a well-known resident of this  camp.  The dust  problem   in   mines  has  attracted   the   inventive   faculty   of  some   of the brainiest  men  on  the  Rand, but   without  satisfactory results so  far.     What   with  fumes of  dynamite and the dust from  drilling  or blasting', the miner's  life   is precarious.     With a Pythisis Commission sitting'and taking evidence this  phase   need   not   be   enlarged    on,  sufficient   to  say  that  the  evil is a  desperate one, that calls  for a remedy and quickly, if the toll of life is'  to    be   reduced.       Mine   dust   rises  principally from two causes, drilling  and blasting.    These two causes re^  quire separate treatment, and   it is  with  the second  we are concerned  here.     The  blasting gives   rise  not  alone   to  dust  but   noxious   fumes,  and'to master both means much rer  lief in human suffering and- incidents  ally   much   to   mine   owners.    The*  problem   has   been   the    subject   of  earnest consideration to Alfred Pickthall, mine captain on  the  Luipaar-  dsvlei Estate Gold Mine, who is now  out with a device   which   he   claims ;  Sjrrests all   dust- and   fumes   arising  News from Hidden Creek  Page  Boyles,  the  B.C. representative   of   Boyles   Bros.,    diamond  drill experts, of Spokane, arrived in  town  on Tuesday, for the  purpose  of inspecting his two drill outfits at  present in  operation  at the Granby  mine.     Mr.   Boyles,  who   has only  recently returned from a visit to the  Hidden   creek   mine, where he  has  three drills in operation prospecting  the ground,  reports things as humming at   the  new  mine,   operations  being   carried    on   with   the   usual  Granby thoroughness and,despatch.  Preparations    towards   largely   increasing- the force were  afoot when  he left  and   the  company   are proceeding with the  erection of a' hotel  and clubhouse   for   the   employees;  another force  of men  are busily engaged m the grading of the smelter  site, while  still another are  cutting  the piles for the wharf.      A ntimber  of cottages are being  built to  accommodate the married members of  the community.    Mr. Boyles further  B. G. Mining  A very large outcrop of iron ore  is reported to have been recently  staked in the Chilcotin district. The  deposit is represented as being  of unusual size, and if the supposition as to depth proves correct, it is  claimed that it will rank as one of  the biggest in the west.  On Thursday of last week, the  assay office of the Canadian Consolidated company, in Rossland,  was gutted by fire. Some of the  paraphernalia of the assay department were saved, but the loss in  apparatus and chemicals was considerable. The building was a total  loss.  The B. C. Copper company are  pushing vigorously their development work in the Voight. camp,  Similameen, where they have a large  group of properties under bond.  The diamond drill is in active opera-  opment is proceeding apace.  from blasting at the face within   ten  minutes of blasting.  The .invention,   which   has   been  An Exemplary Sentence  A excessive overdose of the generous juice, aggravated no doubt by  our famous rarified mountain air,  started Alex. McLean on the war  path last Monday evening, and under the baneful influence of the  mixturejie managed to inflict seri-  -j.oi.is' bodily harm on Wm. Foley,  which necessitated the latter's detention in the hospital for some  days. According to the evidence  given in the police court, the assault  was of a most brutal character and  entirely unprovoked. The prisoner,  on being interrogated by Police  Magistrate Hood on the matter,  pleaded   a   total   lack   of   memory,  tion and satisfactory progress is be-  nforms us that underground devcl-j ing made   on  all  sides.   . The main  tunnel on the east side will be  2000 feet when completed, and one  of the largest mining tunnels in the  country.  Interviewed recently by a representative of the Portland Canal  Miner, W. J Bowen, , of Seattle,  a heavy stockholder in the Red  Cliff mine, stated that his company  had secured a most favorable option on the controlling stock of  the Tyee smelter, but he could make  no statemeut in this connection  pending the arrival of President  A. Erskine Smith, J. G. Chadwick  and A. D.���������,'Jgennant,- who he expected would reach Stewart shortly  on a visit of inspection  to the mine.

COLLARS AND  The newest Collars aud Belts will be seen on  display in the Departments.  the propelling- force is such that the  particles of water rebound from the  face a distance' of twelve or fifteen  feet in the form of a fine mist. The  result is that the whole place, drive,  stope or winze becomes thoroughly  saturated, and the dust and yas are  checked and absorbed at the very  moment of generation. The system  has been at work on the Windsor  mine and D shaft of the Luipaar-  dsvlei Estates, and has achieved all  that has been claimed for it. It is  being tried experimentally on adjoining mines, and drawings of the  invention have been supplied to the  Phthisis Commission, who will probably have a practical test.  The spray docs not affect the  fuses and the work of the miner is  very simple. Before lighting up he  makes the connection between the  water and air pipes, and having lit  up he merely turns a cock as he retires to his place of safety. The device can be put in working order by  a white man in fifteen seconds and  by a native within a minute.  The cost of the invention is trilling  and as it leads lo economy and the  protection o\' life we may expect to  find the device in general use on the  Reel" within a short time.  Alfred Pickthall, inventor, is a  hard-headed Lancashire man, who  has been on the Reef for some fourteen years, and who had previous  mining experience in America. He  has been warmly congratulated by a  large circle of friends and mine  ollicials on his ingenuity.  _ _.  ,        . i      ��-���   Jacobs,    writing-  to   the   Van  -Langr-Pickard ' J ��        .

Gordon  French,   the  eminent   metallurgical  chemist."    Perhaps live cents worth  of salt will be  enough on this occasion.     It is   well   known   that there  is    a   cave   about   four   miles   from  Ainsworth,   for   the  director  of the  Geological survey visited   it  in 190S  and 1909, so there may be others iu  the    neighborhood.        It   is   also   a  fact that A. I). Wheeler found much  native silver  in vughs in   the  Krao  mine,     in   Ainsworth    camp.       But  neither Mr.   Wheeler or   Dr.   Brock  found a "prehistoric jawbone." May  il   not   be   like   unto   that   Samson  found "when he came unto Lehi?"

LAING, Proprietor  Almost Too Good To Be True  A   despatch   to   tbe   Vancouver  Prove says:  "The abolition of pain  resulting from injury   or  operation  is promised if the  new anaesthetic  process  described   in   the   London  Lancet,     fulfills     its    discoverer's  claims.     Dr.   W.  F.   Forbes Ross  makes   the   announcement   in    the  Lancet,   and  from   the fact that it  receives publicity  in that conservative   publication,   the  claim of  Dr.  Ross may be said to have received  orthodox approval.     Moreover, Dr.  Ross has  met' the professional   re-  requirements  by giving his discovery to the public.      Speaking of the  new'boon   to  humanity, the  doctor  said:  "What I wish to make known is  the discovery of the wide^ipplication  J of a prolonged local anaesthetic of  incalculable value to humanity, i  know and I wish the world to know  how to kill pain following the most  severe bodily injury from accident  or during and after the severest  surgical operations.

TRY JT FOR 1912!  Montreal   Standard   Publishing   Co.,  Limited,  Publishers  To Tour British Columbia  The International Geological Con  gress   which    usually  meets   every  three or four years will assemble for  a ten   days session  at Toronto, in  August next,   when   it   is  expected  that  nearly   a  thousand   delegates|eves  and   nose  will be  in attendance.     At  the last  meeting,    which     took    place    in  Sweden,   the   world's   iron   supply  was the chief topic under discussion,  and   at    the  Toronto   sessions   the  world's  coal   supply    will  be   considered.    At the conclusion  of the  congress there will  be at  least 25  separate excursions  to various districts  throughout the" Dominion for  the purpose of examining geological  conditions.   This plan was regarded  as the   most  satisfactory,   and it is  thought that the breaking up of the  congress  into  small parties will enable  the visitors to see the country  to better advantage.  British Columbia will be included  in the itinerary of at least four of  the parties, as there will be separate excursions through the northern  Alberta coal fields west as far as  Tete jaune Cache, the Kootenays,  the Crow's Nest Pass district, Vancouver Island and Hazleton.  The western members of the  Canadian Mining Institue will be  asked to co-operate in making the  excursions as enjoyable and interesting as possible. The main arrangements of the congress are in  the hands of the acting secretary,  W. S. Lecky, of the Dominion  Geological Survey, Ottawa.  On    Thursday   morning   of   last  week, at  a private hospital at Fair-  view, there   was   born   a  little girl,  who   i.s said   to  be   the   first Hindu  child   born  in  Canada.     It  will  be  recalled   that a  few weeks ago the  Dominion  authorities rescinded  an  order  for   the  deportation   of   two  Hindu^women,  one  of whom is the  mother of the child just born.     The  father's name is Htra Singh.    ,  ���  Christopher   A.   Coughlan,   local  manager for P.   Burns   and  Co., at  Rossland, was the victim of a peculiar accident last week.    The refrigerating plant  in   the  basement was  out of order, and, while  he was repairing a   leak,   a  pipe   burst   and  filled   the room with  ammonia gas.  He was   almost  overcome with the  fumes, but managed  to stagger out  into the  street,   bleeding  from   the  It   was  feared at  first that  he  would   lose   his sight.  Two large  blacky bears   have recently  been   seen   on  the outskirts  of   Nelson,   and   although    several  have  tried   to  capture   the visitors  their  afforts   have  so far been unavailing.       While   playing   at   the  head   of  Silica    street  some    boys  were   put to   flight   by  the appearance  of   a   large  black   bear,   and  in the   afternoon  several ladies had  a view of bruin on Hall Mines road.  A Miss Edwards planted a 32 bullet  in the   animal's  head, but   was unsuccessful in bagging the bear.  There   is   a  suggestion which  is  receiving   the   support   of business  men in Rossland that the boy scouts  from different parts  of the province  be brought to Rossland during the  present summer to camp, and while  here to   set them  at work prospecting for pre in the South Belt.     It is  thought that the practical experience  gained this  way would   be  invaluable  to   many   of  them, who ��� would  take up mining later on.      It would  probably be  arranged-that anything  found by the boys would  be place'd  to their credit.

This is headquarters  Sir Richard McBride, K.C.M.G.  The honor of Knight Commander  of St.  Michael  and St.   George, recently   bestowed    on     the   British  Columbia premier, was not  entirely  unexpected, and  the wonder is that  some such  distinction   has not been  forthcoming''.long- before  this,   but  with a  Liberal  premier at  the head  of   Federal  affairs  it would   be too  much   for   us   to  expect   that   that  gentleman   would   see   anything   in  | the  phenomenal career of  this pro:  yince's first minister to warrant any  special recognition from the throne;  but  now  that  the   recognition  has  come it does not appear at all worthy  of the  great   Liberal  papers of the  province���-the      organs      of      His  Majesty's Loyal Opposition���to lampoon   and   ridicule    the   distinction  conferred.      In these days when the  excuse of men   to run for office, or  even to vote, on the absurd grounds  thai the political arena is becoming  too   odorous  for   their delicate susceptibilities, is too  often heard, it is  pleasant to remember that tha affairs  of  this   portion  of  the   King's dominions are  in   the  safe  keeping of  loyal-hearted ���"and  patriotic men, at  the head of   whom   stands  the  new  British    Columbian     Knight   Commander,     Sir     Richard    McBride,  whose  brilliant career in the cause  of    Empire,    has    after    all,    only  just commenced.  AC  PROPER CLOTHES  Children Ambassadors  The .five hundred happy London school children, supplemented  by many more from the provinces,  who spent the recent Whitsuntide  holidays in Paris, were for a time  the informal ambassadors of the  British people. The object of their  visit was to take part in a great  international     musical    competition,  To the Canadians who'are thinking of booking passage for Kngland  and  Continental  Europe, says Colliers' Weekly, we would respectfully  recommend   what has  been recommended   to   so   many    gallivanting  Americans:   "Sec your own country  first."     It would  not be  a bad idea  if  some   one    inaugurated   a   "Sec  Canada First"  campaign.     11 costs  about   as   much   to make  a  trip to  London as it does to go from Toronto Vancouver, and  the gain,  in the  former  case,   is far  less real.     The  Canadian    business    man, ' making  even  a hurried journey  through the  west is  sure  to  get   new ideas; he  will be better informed on economic  conditions  which affect  his own interests; he may.even  see opportunities for wise investments.     For the  seeker    after   health    there   is   no  country   able    to   afford   a  greater  variety of resorts than this country.  For   scenery   there is . little, if any,  more    beautiful   than   that    of   the  Rocky   mountains.      A   sojourn   in  Victoria   gives   as 'much "a "change  of climate as a stay in Surrey.  Than  Banff  or   Lagan    or   Glacier   there  could   be   nothing   more   refreshing  for body and mind.     But beyond all  this,     '/seeing    Canada"    gives   a  Canadian   a new  idea  of his Cana-  dianism,   makes him: or her realize  that   these    men    plowing   on    the  prairies, these  apple growers in the  Okanagan valley, .and even the land  agents  of the   coast,   ate   common  sons of the  most glorious of countries.     It is  this we  must have before  our   Imperialism   can   hope to  come to anything: True Imperialism  is born   in   those   exalted   moments  9 ���  when a man, with, the eye of his  mind, sweeps the land from coast  to coast, comprehending all its  beauties,, all its problems, and says:  "This is  my own, my native land."

Richard McBride  has been  made a Knight Commander,   was   established    in   1818   to  commemorate   the   placing  of   the  Ionian islands under the protection  of Great   Britain.     It  was   limited  first to natives  of Great Britain and  Ireland, Malta and such  other subjects of  His  Majesty  holding  high  and    confidential   positions   in    the  British   Mediterranean  possessions.  The order was not made applicable to the  colonies generally  until  some  years  after the  founding   of  the order of the   "Star of India."  In 1832 its' three classes were fixed  at fifteen,   twenty  and   twenty-five  respectively,   but    it  was  enlarged  successively in 1868, 1877, 1879 and  1837, till it has come to be assigned  to   any   person   who   has   rendered  valuable   services in either colonial  or   foreign   affairs.     It   now   comprises  the   Sovereign,    the   Grand  Master (or Principal  Knight Grand  Cross), a   number  of royal princes  with foreigners of distinction  (honorary   members)   and     a   hundred  members    Knights     Grand   Cross,  three    hundred   members   Knights  Commanders, and six hundred companions.  Its officers are the Prelate,  Chancellor,      Secretary,    King     of  Arms and  Registrar;  the  Colonial  office is the chancery, and the order  has a chapel in St. Paul's cathedral.  The decorations   are  the badge,  star,   collar,    ribbon,    mantle   and  chapeau."   The  badge  is white   enamelled   and   resembles   a  Maltese  cross, but  has seven  arms  instead  of four.     On   one side it represents  the Archangel Michael encountering  satan, and on  the other St. George  and the dragon;'around  the designs  is the motto,   "Auspicium melioris  aevi"   (the  token   of a  better age).  Above the badge is a crown attaching it to the collar.    The  star of a  Knight Grand Cross has seven rays  of silver  with  narrow rows of gold  between; while in the  centre  is the  figure of St. George and the motto.  The collar   is made   up   of crowned  lions,   Maltese crosses   and   ciphers  Here you will find  Smart Suits, and  if your desire is to  look well dressed  visit our Clothing  Department.

Delahay returned to town this  week from a ten-days' business trip  to Vancouver. He appears to think  that the land boom there is rapidly  subsiding, land values having found a  level, but anticipates a revival when  the Panama canal i.s iu operation.  The report that Charles King had  positively refused to take the part of  the defunct viking warrior, at the  forthcoming Scandinavian celebration  at Christina, turns out to be too true;  it is whispered that the scanty supply  of asbestos at the lake has something  to do with his regretable decision.  Thos. Jones left for Nelson, where  he expects to meet Mrs, Jones, who is  en route from Peurhyndeudraeth, N.  Wales. This is Tom's second effort to  meet her; the last time she was unable  to book a passage on account of the  strike.   He left the cauip.-oti tip-toe.  Mrs. Jas.

This is something new, and everyone  should make <* special effort to be present iu order to observe how "mere  man" acquits himself.   Admission 2oc.  Doukhobors Sentenced  The Douks around  Grand  Forks  still continue  to contravene the law  which requires that when a Douk is  despatched,    or   a  little   Douk   is  hatched, the important  fact should  be reported to   the proper government    officers;    the    ceremony   of  matching among the Douks is childishly  simple too,   but   the  government   has   never interfered,  but   in  the   matter   of   burial   permits and  birth    registrations   the   authorities  are  determined that  the law - shall  be observed to the letter.    This latter fact was   plainly seen last week  when   George   Stanfield,  Provincial  police officer  of Phoenix, journeyed  to Nelson with  a   Doukhobor quartette   who   bad   been   sentenced   to  two    months     in    Nelson   jail    for  neglecting   to   register   the   deaths  of members   of their  families.    The  magistrates  at  Grand   Forks   have  now given up the practice of inflicting   fines  in   these cases,   as   these  peculiar   people   do   not   possess   a  single stick of personal property.
