Not only  that, but even this output will soon be  increased, as two more furnaces are to  he placed in commission as soon as it  can be done, the furnaces themselves  heing now ready for operation, making  fourteen in all at the three Boundary  smelting works.  Monday morning Manager McAllister, of the British Columbia Copper  Co., blew in the third large furnace of  that plant, and the full battery of thiee  have been in commission this week,  doing the best of work, and eating up  about 650 tons of ore daily, or in that  neighborhood, that being the average  that the furnaces will reduce, according to recent records. This is the  first time that three furnaces have been  in blast at this plant, and it is the expectation to run at that rate in the  future.  At the Granby smelter the seventh  furnace was blown in on Monday also,  with the intention of putting the eighth  furnace of that battery in blast as s'oon  as the men could be had.  With the two now in operation at  the Dominion Copper Co.'s smelter,  this makes twelve blast furnaces treating the ore of the Boundary mines in  this section, and they should average  well up 5,000 tons of ore treated each  24 hours, or at the rate of about 150,-  000 tons of ore monthly.  When the third furnace is in blast  at the Dominion Copper Co.'s and the  eight furnace at the Granby smelter,  the entire fourteen furnaces should be  able .to handle well up to 6,000 tons of  pre.per.day, or about_i80,000 tons per  month.  It is interesting to note what the  smelting of 6,000 tons of Boundary  ore daily would amount to in pounds  of copper fine. While it is not probable that the entire battery at any or  all of the smelters can be kept in continuous operation, owing to varying  conditions as regards men, fuel supply,  car supply, etc , if it were possible to  keep them all in blast, it would make  a large showing in copper production.  Figuring on a basis of say 25 pounds  of copper recovered per ton, 6,000  tons treated daily would give 150,000  pounds of copper each 24 hours, or  4,500,000 pounds per month, or over  50,000,000 pounds per annum. I  Boundary Mining Notes  Over 100 men are nuw'employed at  the Snowshoe mine, arid more are  being added to the force.  The minute he can get men enough,  Manager Thomas, of .the Dominion  Copper Co., will blow in his third furnace at the Boundary Falls smelting  plant.  Last week the regular monthly payday occurred here, Out, on account of  the May shut-down; it was the smallest  in a year or two,'amounting to less  than $20,000.   f;      ��       .,  In the neighborhood of 500 men  are now busy at the Granby mines,  and while there are plenty, of muckers,  a score or two of machine men could  quickly get employment.  When the,Granby's Curlew tunnel  how being driven, has reached a point  about 1,000 feet from the portal, a  raise will be made to the workings of  the Gold Drop, some 300, feet. This  raise will likely be started soon.  Men have been coming in to the  mines of the Boundary a little more  freely, now that the increased wage  paid is becoming better known on the  outside. There are still positions for  quite a number of good machine men,  however, at most of the properties.  A block of shares of the Gold Bug  Mining Co. has been placed in Winnipeg at a satisfactory figure, and it is  understood that work is to be resumed  on that well known high grade mine  very shortly. It, speaks well for this  mine that none of the holders of shares  seem disposed to get rid of them.  An average of 100 tons per day is  now being shipped from the B. C.  Copper Co.'s Napoleon mine, near  Boyd's, Wash. The new tramway  from the mine to the G. N. spur is  working in splendid shape, and a new  ore crusher is being installed at the  mine. The ore is used as a sulphur  flux at the company's Greenwood  smelter.  LAUNDRY CO.  IS AT WORK  Complete Steam Plant  in Operation.  Fitted With Latest Appliances  ���Credit to Phoenix.  CAR  C.

COKE ARRIVING  FROM EAST  Granby  Co.   Taking  No Chances.  Ten   or   Twelve   Thousand  Tons Are On the Way.  LODGES ELECT  NEW OFFICIALS  I.O.O.F.,  K.  of P.  bekahs.  and  Re-  This is the season of the semiannual election of ofheers in several of  the fraternal organizations, and the  following have been reported to the  Pioneer:  Snowshoe Lodge No. 46, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, elected  the following:  N.G., J. F. McDougall; V.G., Carlton H. Cook; Kec. Sec, W. S. Cook;  1'er. Sec, William Pickard; Treas., R.  Silverthorne.  I'hoenix Lodge No. 17, Daughters  of Rebekah, chose the following at the  meeting held Wednesday evening:  N.G., Mrs. J. C. Tail; V.G., Mrs.  James Marshall; Rec. Sec, Carlton  Cook; Per. Sec, R. Silverthorne;  Treas., Charles McCague.  Other officers will be appointed by  both lodges at the installation meeting,  to be held early in July.  New Knights of Pythias Officers.  This week, at the regular weekly  meeting, the members of Phoenix  Lodge No. 28, Knight of Pythias,  elected the following officers for the  ensuing term, the installation to take  place on July 2d:  C.C., William Searle; V. C, Albin  Almstrom; Prelate, I'". C. Graham; M.  of W., Al. Kobloth; M. of A., R. G.  Gordon; K.. of R. & S., George L.  Elkins; M. of F., A. R. Thomasj.M.  of F., Richard Silverthorne; I.G., John  W. Hannam.  It is pretty evident that A. B. W.  Hodges, local manager of the Granby  Co., does not propose to be tied up  again right away on account of lack of  coke at the company's smelter. When  the Aprill strike of the coal miners was  over, it was expected that the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. could at ouce begin to supply the needful coke, and so  it did to some extent; but the coal  company seemed to have troubles of  its own, and the coke came in slowly.  So Mr. Hodges arranged for a  month's supply, or such a matter, from  the east, and for some little time past  this supply has been coming along.  At present there are some 75 cars of  coke in the Great Northern yards at  Grand Forks, and all along the line to  Spokane can be seen whole trains of  coke destined for the Granby smelter,  en route from Duluth or Superior or  other eastern points. Probably  10,000 or 12,000 tons of coke are on  the way or have been delivered  At the same time the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co. should soon be in shape  to supply the necessary coke, thus  making it certain, with the alternative  supply, that for some time ahead there  will be no coke shortage for the  Granby Co.  An enterprise tnat is just being  started in this city, after months of  preparation, and one that every resident of this city should take pride in,  is the Phoenix Steam Laundry Co., Ltd.  The company, with a capital of $10,-  000, is composed entirely of residents  of this city and is managed by a man-  who thoroughly understands tho business, having been in the same line  here for the last six years.  A Pioneer representative visited the  establishment yesterday, where he  found an air of bustle and business  that looked good, and was shown over  the plant by A. D. McKenzie, the  manager. The machinery secured for  this steam laundry is the very best that  can be bought in Canada, having been  manufactured by the York Manufacturing Co., Ltd., of Toronto. The  building used is old Miners' Union  hall, on lower Dominion avenue, which  was purchased and has been remod-  delled in both stories to suit the purpose of the laundry. The machinery  installed includes the following:  Three washers���one 175-shirt machine, one 50-shirt machine and one  35-shirt machine; one 26-inch extractor  for wringing; one 90-inch mangle, with  capacity for all the hotel work in  Phoenix even though the city should  double in size; a combined shirt and  collar polishing machine and a necker;  a shirt starcher and a collar and cuff  Starcher; a six drawer drying room,  heated by steam, etc.  Steam for the concern is furnished  by one 25-h. p. boiler, while a 10-h. p.  electric motor furnishes the power for  operating the several machines, electric irons also being used.  The compafiy has thus far spent  about $7,000 in the plant and in fitting up: the building, and it is-the- in  tention to turn out none but the very  best of work at the lowest possible  prices. In fact, the management proposes to make it to the interest of every  resident of Phoenix to patronize the  Phoenix Steam Laundry by giving  satisfaction in every way, there being  no longer any necessity for sending  laundry work out of the city, as in  price the new concern proposes to  compete with any other, guaranteeing  just as good or better work. Special'  attention will be given to hotel and  family work as well as to individual  bundles.  Officers of the company are: President, G.W. Rumberger; vice-president,  Martin McHale; secretary-treasurer,  D. J. Matheson; manager, A. D. McKenzie. The above, with John Mc  Innis, M. L. A., comprise the board of  directors, and their names are an assurance that the enterprise will be conducted along legitimate lines and that  the public will benefit thereby. The  need of such a concern has long been  felt in this city, and there is every  prospect of its doing a good business  with satisfaction to its customers.  R.   and   G.N.   Getting  More Ore Dumps.  Once again the ore dump shortage  in the Boundary is being felt by the  large shipping mines, occasioned primarily by the C.P.R. withdrawing  some 75 Hart convertible dumps from  the service here for other parts, and  also on account of the increasing demand for cars, caused by the considerable increase in shipments of ore'from  all the heary shippers.  Last fall, when the C.P.R. was short  of dumps, 75 Hart convertible gravel  dumps were brought here and placed  in the ore service, helping not a little.  Since then the bunch of 4oton steel  ere dumps ordered months (or was it  years?) ago by the C. P. R., began to  arrive. The gravel dumps being needed elsewhere, they were taken away  recently. Meantime the need for more  cars has grown steadily, and the  C.P.R. has another order in for steel  dumps, this time of 50 tons capacity  each. But, of course, it will be  months before they can be manufactured and delivered in the Boundary,  car shops everywhere being already  taxed to their utmost capacity. : .-���. .  The C. P. R. serves all the smelters  and all the mines in the Boundary, and  has its hands full. Fortunately for the  mining industry in this section^ the  Great Northern also serves the largest  shipper, the Granby mines. Were itj  not for that fact, the Granby Co.'  would be in bad shape to get its ore  handled at all, as the C P.R. is  simply unable to do it under the existing conditions. 'I'he immediate result  is that the C.P.R. is now hauling but  little of the Granby ore, and the Great  Northern takes nearly all of it. '��� This  vyeek some days as many as 50 cars, of  54 tons each, have been hauled from  the Granby mines by the Great  Northern.  In order to relieve things some, the  Great Northern is bringing in more  steel dumps from Minnesota, these  dumps being loaded with coke for the  Granby smelter.  More than a year ago the head  officials of the C. P. R. were officially  notified by Boundary smelter managers  that more rolling stock would be  needed here to keep pace with the increased and increasing output, but the  additional .dumps have not been pro  vided fast enough, notwithstanding the  seemingly ample notice.. The wreck  ingofanore train on the Rossland  hill some months ago and another on  the Phoenix hill, only made matters  that much worse. However, the wires  are being kept hot, and it is hoped  that strenuous efforts will be made by  railway officials generally to meet the  demand, which will yet increase not a,  little.  f;D.MATTHEWS  SAWSNOWSHOE  Is President of the Go.  With Long Name.  Toronto Man's First Visit to  the Boundary^  Grand Lodje Officers, I.O.O.F.

Last Sunday Edgar Wilmore Fox  and Miss Minnie Louise, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. O. C. Hanson, were  married at the residence of the bride's  parents, at Pleasant Prairie, a suburb  of Spokane. The happy couple will,  after a short trip, make their home at  the Snowshoe mine, Phoenix, where  Mr. Fox has been the office man for  some time past, having made many  friends in that capacity.  On Wednesday last William C.  Hower and Miss Jennie I. Dawson  were married at the Pacific hotel, Spokane, the officiating clergyman being  Rev. Heriry I. Rasmus, of the First  Methodist Episcopal church of that  city. The bride and groom will make  their home at Mullan, Idaho Mr.  Hower was for years the electrician  with the Phoenix Electric Lighting  Co., but is now located at Mullan,  while Miss Dawson was well known  here, having been in charge of the local  telephone office for several years. A  host of friends wish them a long life of  happiness.  Thursday evening an ice cream social took place at the Methodist  church, which was a great success. A  good programme' was rendered, and  the church was ' crowded, a most enjoyable time being the result  W. D, Matthews and wife, their two  daughters, the  Misses Matthews, and  Mr. Matthews   their son,  arrived   in  camp on Thursday's C.P.R.  passenger  train, travelling in a private car.    They  were accompanied from   Rossland  by -  W. H.   Aldridge,   managing  director,  and R. H. 'Stewart, mine manager for  the Consolidated Mining  &   Smelting  Co. of Canada, Ltd.  ,  Mr. Matthews  is  the   president  of  this company, which  owns and  oper-'  ates the Center. Star,.War-Eagle, Iron?.  Mask, Enterprise, Idaho,  Red  Moun-,  tain and other properties in   Rossland  camp, besides the Trail   smelter  and  the St. Eugene mine and concentrator;  at Moyie, and having an   option  and'  bond on the Snowshoe group of mines  in Phoenix camp.    .......  He is also one of the  directors  of  the : Canadian   Pacific   railway.    For  many years   Mr. Matthews   has   been  president of the    Toronto  board   of  trade, and   is considered- one   of  the  foremost   business   men  of Canada's  busy   metropolis,   where -he   has   for  several years had large business   interests, especially in grain.    It is said in  Toronto that there are few men on the  continent better informed as to cereals  than he  is.    He  keeps  himself well  posted as to crop conditions  and  seldom makes a mistake  in either buying  or selling. As a result of this he is one'  of the wealthiest   men   in   his  line   in  Canada.    He has taken a   deep  inter-*  est in Canadian  industries,   especially  mining.    The principal reason for   his  visit to the west is  to  look over the .  holdings of the Consolidated Co.  - The private coach was switched to  the Snowshoe mine, where the party  was met by the seperintendent, Charles  Biesel, being his guests over night.  A thorough inspection" of" the "Snow-"  shoe mine was made by members of  the party, and they also saw the Granby mines. Yesterday carriages were  taken to Greenwood, where the British  Columbia Copper Co.'s works were  visited.  Mr. Matthews was not a little  pleased at what he saw of the resources  of the Boundary on this his first  visit to this section of British  Columbia..  Latest Prices 10 Metals.

I   never  expect to live long enough to see more  than a fair start at working it but,'.and  I wish you to work the property every  day as if you expected  it   would be]  yours ten years ahead and vou would  like just as much good ore in  sight as  possible and the mine in fine shape in  .every way at that time  , , Most miners pocket the profits that  come   easily   and  then   turn  a  cold  shoulder on the mine that  has  been  good to them.    Fifty per cent of the  profits of operating this mine go back  into development  work, so you  will  always   have  men   opening   up new  territory.  You will work the lean, parts of the  mine first, keeping the large size ore-  bodies in reserve as much as possible.  Each time you leave a stope and resume work there you entail loss of time  and create needless expense. The  ground gets dirty and discolored, it  takes a man a shift or two , to get the  lay of the ground, position of the ore,  etc., and to handle himself to best.ad  hard to carry into effect,- and��tharje\.wiH  be places of which it will not bat easy  t'i  keep a  perfecti record; .but/jcomr.  iiieiiciiiH with   drives," ��� raises,-; etc.,- you  will lind it easy   to  expand   to cover]  more work than you might think.    By  :.o doing you have something definite,  ymi are not judging a  man   by/ 'some  one day's-work, when  he  didnVfeel  his best and did poorly, or felt extra  well and did splendidly,- In tima-you  will appreciate the fact  that, what is  true of every other line of work is true  of mining;raccurate Imowledgtrofrwhat  is done by your employees beatsguess-  work.  From the present appearance'of-the  mine it will -not  be  long before-you  have quite a force under .you^so-it is  important that you start with a'systeiivj  that can   be  readily  expanded /.jas, ire-  quired.    Shift-bosses and other subordinates will be necessary, as it; will ���be'  impossible for you to dictate" the 'details to each individual worker, -When  this time  comes  you   will  gfve your  orders to the bosses only, holding them  responsible   for ,any, shortcomings* in  the men under them, i-  You will file an invoice at,, the end  of each monthjofisuch suppliesias ,you  have on hand, accompanyingotte.with  requisition for what is needed. You  will keep a good reserve always on  hand, and on receipt of new stock you  will move the old forward or so, place j  it that you will be sure to take it first |  when issuing to the men  There are mines where^the- employees are allowed to help'themselves  to such, supplies as they think^they  need.

Copper chronicles  are  spectacular,  snys  Business   and Finance.    Copper  otxJP *>���<* ot<j ��^s<* <oa<* i^��  nondit'ons have ever tempted men of  and  influence  into the  triumphant  wealth, power  financial arena, to emerge  or go down in bitter defeat. We all  know the litigious Heinze, the picturesque Lawson and the implacable  .Rogers. Their names loom large in  copper history.  The year 1899 saw copper in the  zenith of its prosperity; the average  price per pound had risen from 9.52 to  17.76 and the copper companies of the  world were pouring out a tremendous  stream of wealth to the shareholders.'  Producers, investors and speculators  were achieving great fortunes. Copper  al seventeen cents was the spectacular  millionaire-maker of rich men and the  fort tine-maker of poor men. The outlook was rosy with promise for consumption was fast overtaking production.  Hut a sinster shadow, loomed up!  The shadow of .Standard Oil. The  total value of American copper production for the year 1899 was over one  hundred millions of dollars, whilst the  total value of petroleum produced in  the same year was less than fifty-seven  millions of dollars. Here was a prize  worthy of the effort of billionaires.  Could it be grasped?  April 27, 1899, saw Jersey give  birth to the collossal Amalgamated,  fathered and officered by Standard Oil  interests. VV. G. Rockefeller, VV.  Rockefeller, H. H. Rogers, F. P. 01-  cott, James Stillman and Robert  iiacon were its directors. Behind  Amalgamated stood Standard Oil and  its affiliations, the National City Bank  and "The Standard Crowd," as powerful a group of financiers as could be  well conceived. Literally, billions  backed the combine.  Controlling interests in four giant  copper producers was secured, giving  Amalgamated control of one-third of  the copper production of the United  States. On May 4th, 1899, the public  was given an opportunity to' suoscribe  for the stock. Here was an impregnable combine. Beside it the Secretan  Syndicate locked small indeed.  Rumors of further consolidations filled  the air; the leading producers of the  world were to be welded into one giant  corporation which, absolutely controlling the supply, would dictate the price.  The demand was unmistakable. Stock  to the value of four hundred millions  of dollars was subscribed in two hours.  The world's keenest investors were  alive to the possibilities of copper. .  But disillusion was in store. The  expected era of combination did not  materalize. Too late the public realized that the lifelong tactics of Standard Oil were being employed by Amalgamated. In lieu of affiliating with  competitors it sought to crush; when  its adversaries were on their knees surrender would be possible only on terms  imposed by Amalgamated.  It was a daring coup���capture of  the world's copper revenues was the  prize. Amalgamated, in face of a demand that ensured its magnificent  profits, began to sell its copper below  the market.  Copper was selling at nineteen cents  per pound nine days after -Amalgamated closed its subscription books; it  then began to sag; no time was being  lost. In January, 1901, copper was  selling at sixteen cents per pound.  Why should the copper merchants of  the world buy from Calumet and  Hecla, or from Rio 1'into at 19 cents  when Amalgated proffered its copper  at 16, 13, 12, ro^ cents per pound?  for to that price the metal ultimately  sunk on January 13, 1902. Each reduction of a cent per pound meant an  annual loss of $6,500,000 annually to  copper producers! The mines controlled by Amalgamated had inex-  haustable supplies of copper mined by  tne most approved methods known to  science. They would pay at prices  that made every copper producer  bankrupt,���at least so thought Rogers,  Captain of Amalgamated. Anyhow, the  game was being played with the  people's money.  It was a war of endurance. Beneath  the tread of the mammoth combatants  1 the groundwork of copper values  crumbled away, investors and speculators alike meeting ruin in the resultant  fall of stock values.  "Standard Oil," says a writer in a  recent number of the New York Press,  "has accumulated its vast wealth by  depressing the price of oil and buying  large producing properties, then advancing the price and assessing the  world to pay for the same. Thus they  have the'people wholly dependent on  the oil industry, serfs. Their profits  reaped from this serfdom have been  governed by thejr greed, and their  accumulation of wealth and enormous  dividends have startled the worlds"  Against Standard Oil, however, was  arrayed Calumet and Hecla, the copper giant of the world, and, negatively  at least, the tremendous financial  power of the Rothchilds with their  control of the great Rio Tinto copper  property.  These mines, combined with a  number of independent producers who  shunned the yoke Amalgamated sought  to place on their necks, began to store  their copper. The mines,~of Amalgamated were left to supply the-world's  demand.  A titanic task! -The world's ,copper  mines could barely accomplish it; Not  to do it meant utter defeat, as copper  lacking from one source, would compel  buyers to seek another, and pay the  price dictated by the natural law of  supply and demand. ������  In the last herculean struggle all the  surplus copper stored by Amalgamated  was poured on the market. It was  swallowed up.  Then Amalgamated soid its copper  yet unmined under future delivery contract three months ahead. The move  did not even gain ,respite. "Copper!  Give us Copper!" clamoured the  world's great buyers. The financial  power of Amalgamated ��� was not exhausted, but its copper supplies, were.  It was powerless to fill the demand.  Standard Oil, in the ruise of Amalgamated, had met its Waterloo.  The exhaustion'.of Amalgamated  turned the demand from where -it had  fought bitterly to keep it. Independent copper producers with over  flowing bins had bided their time.  This was their opportunity. A tremendous supply of copper poured into  the world's markets.  In the entire history -of the metals  is .not recorded such a situation-^-such  an outcome. Logically prices should  have crashed down under the copper  flood.  An instant advance took place.

The following praise of the Canadian banking system is found in the  New York Journal of Commerce:  "Canadian bankers and financial  writers have' a right to congratulate  themselves upon the superiority of  their banking system, which is more  nearly perfect than any other in the  world, and puts to shame the clumsy  and disordered national system of the  United States.  "It affords what is here sometimes  derisively spoken of as 'assets currency," a perfectly safe and elastic form  of note circulation, which expands and  contracts with the demands of business,  and through the branch , banks it furnishes the means not only of distributing and collecting this currency readily,  but of placing the capital and credit of  the main institution where they can be  used to best advantage.  , "The superiority of the system over  ours is constantly exhibited, but if a  time of strain or stress should come it  will be demonstrated in a striking  fashion that ought to teach us a lesson.  "Canada is justly proud and confident in her banks, and our loose-  jointed and cumbersome system is a  cause of continual dissatisfaction and  is likely be one of humiliation when  put to a severe test."

Walker, of Boston, editor  of the Boston Commercial, and a well  known authority on copper matters,  announces that he is now on the way  west to visit a number of prominent  copper producers, and among others  he will come to the Boundary, and inspect the smelters and mines of the  Granby, British Columbia Copper and  Dominion Copper Companies. On  the trip he also takes in the Butte,  California, Nevada, and Utah copper  fields.  Mr. Walker states in his own behalf  that he is not retained by any company  or firm to make these visits, but does  so at his own expense and initiative,  for the purpose of seeing for himself  and describing for his own weekly just  what he has seen.  ,  Having secured the services of  an expert watch repairer who  lias had over 38 years experience  in this business, we are prepared  to handle all your repairs promptly and satisfactorily, and the  price will be as low as is consistent with the quality of tlie  work done.

The work of painting the largest  building in the city, the Miners' Union  opera house, was completed this week  by A. G. Evans.  v#2fakir pungled up the needful $5  defense to the city authorities last  Tuesday, and that evening sold' nearly  $50 worth of stuff.on the street corner.  Fred Weir, brother of Mrs. Stoll,  and employed at the Granby mines,  received a telegram Wednesday that  his fiancee was very ill at Walla Walla,  and he started for that city on the next  train. After his departure a second  wire arrived,- telling of the young lady's  death from tonsilitis.  Mrs. Danny Deane lost a bunch of  some 50 or 60 chickens one night this  week, and Mrs. J. H. Graham also  suffered in the same way. Mrs. P.  Cook's clothes line was visited one  night also and the clothes stolen.  Evidently there is a band of thieves in  camp, and they will get short shrift  when brought before "the beak, as  they surely will be if the work is kept  uP-  cheap,  This week the Great Northern has  been doing an exceedingly heavy business hauling ore for the Granby mines,  owing to the fact that the C. P. R. is  specially short of ore dumps just at  present.  Last Monday afternoon fire broke  out in the log cabin occupied by Al.  Taylor, located on Knob Hill avenue,  near the Aetna, and practically destroyed the contents before being extinguished. The cabin is one of the  old landmarks, and adjoins two other  structures, but both were saved.  At a meeting of the city license  commissioners, held in Grand Forks  last week, two hotels, the Grand Forks  and Square hotels, were refused renewals of licenses, the action being  taken from the report of the inspector.  The Grand Forks hotel has had a  license for 13 years, it is said, and if  certain provisions are complied with,  it may yet be renewed.  Nelson's Big Celebration.

Tracklaying across the Similkameen  river is now going on again at the railr  head of the Similkameen extension of  the V. V. & E. line, but no one knows  anythingabout an early resumption of  operations in grading beyond Keremeos.  Ralph Smailes was in Greenwood  last week, and is now in New York,  attending to what are believed to be  the final details before the announcement that the long moribund Midway  & Vernon railway is soon to be actively  under construction once more.  Although many in Nelson did not  like the night service being given that  city by the Great Northern, from the  fact that the train is doing a fine busi  ness, the travelling public seems to  appreciate the new arrangement. Travellers from the Boundary to Nelson,  however, will probably use the C.P.R.  exclusively hereafter, as, under the new  schedule, there are several hours to  wait for connections at Marcus���an exciting proposition under any circumstances.  district.
