This  will be further considered at a special  meeting of the council to be held this  (Saturday) morning.  The council then took up and considered the resolutions received from  the city council of Rossland, the purpose being to permit of the taxing of  railway property, as other property  holders are taxed, within the corporate  limits. The following resolution was  unanimously passed, and the clerk directed to transmit copies of the same  to the government and to G. A. Fraser,  M. L. A.:  To the Honourable, the Speaker and  Members of the Legislative Assembly  of the province of British Columbia, in  parliament assembled:  The humble petition of the municipal council of the corporation of the  City"of Phoenix, showeth:  Whereas, under Section 116 of the  Municipal Clauses Act, all cities in  corporated prior to the 21st day of  February, A. D. 1895, are empowered  to assess real property of a railroad  company, situate within the limits of  incorporated municipalities;  And Whereas,, under and by virtue  of the powers contained in such section the cities of Vancouver, Victoria,  and other coast cities incorporated  prior to said date, derive a very" eon -  siderable municipal revenue from the  taxation Of such railroad property;  And Whereas, this city is by virtue  of sub-section A of said section deprived of the privilege of assessing in  ike manner such railroad property  within the limits of the municipality:  And, Whereas, by reason of the tortuous course of the railways within the  limits of this municipality a large portion of land is thereby excluded from  municipal taxation; and the portion so  excluded will be made much larger by  the building of the V., V. & E. Railway into the city during, the present  year;  And, Whereas, a grave injustice is  done this municipality by sub-section  A, ol section 116, above referred to,  and a large portion of taxes which the  city ought to receive is diverted to the  uses of the province;  And, Whereas, it is advisable that  steps should be .taken to secure the repeal of said sub section;  Your Petitioners humbly pray that  your Honorable House will be pleased  to repeal sub-section A, of Section 116,  of the Municipal Clauses Act, being  Chapter 144 of the Revised Statutes of  Biitish Columbia;  And Your Petitioners as in duty  bound will ever pray, etc., etc., etc.  MR. RIORDAN WAS  IN COLORADO.  Tells of Atrocities by the State  Troops.  John Riordan, secretary of Phoenix  Miners' Union No. 8, returned Monday night from attending the annual  convention of the Western Federation  of Miners, held at Denver, .Colorado.  Mr. Riordan was in that suite when  the reign of mob law was at its height  in the Cripple Creek district, and talked  with a number of the union men who  were driven out of the district by orders of General Bell, who has figured  so much of late in that connection.  Mr. Riordan says that negotiations  had practically been completed for the  calling off of the strike when the explosion occurred at the Independence  <depul, by which a score or more lost  their lives, so that it would merely  have been playing into the hands of  their enemies had this been done by  the union men. But little of the true  state of affairs was allowed to get into  the papers by the military authorities,  and even in Denver the signed statement of the Federation was refused  publication by the daily press.  None of the accounts that have  leaked out in print regarding the ex  cesses of the military have been overdrawn, and in fact the half has not yet  been told. When the union men were  expelled from the Cripple Creek district, they were first robbed by the  soldiers, and their destitute families refused the necessities of life. As showing the sentiment of the people at large,  it is related that on Memorial Day in  Victor, General Bell, invited all the  members of secret and fraternal organ-  zations to parade with the state troops.  Not a single society accepted the invitation, nor did the veterans of the civil  war accept either, but in the afternoon  the latter and the secret societies gladly joined in the parade by the miners.  IT WILL COST  JUST $480,000  Price-of  the Brooklyn Group  of Claims.  Boundary Mining Notes  CASH   FIGURE  OF  PHOENIX   MINES  Expected ibat New Montreal and Boston  Consolidated Will Be Ready lo Beiln  Business is July.  Another New Building.  Valentine Carson is arranging to  erect a building, 25 x 60 feet in size on  the lot just east of "Jit' Hardy block,  on Dominion avenue, and has rented  it for two years to P. W. George, who  now conducts a large clothing stoie in  Greenwood. As soon as the building  is completed Mr. George intends to  put in a full stock here and conduct a  first class establishment.   *  It is said that Mr. George was one  of those who profited by the sale of  the famous Mollie Gibson1 mine, up  among the glaciers on the Slocan-Nel-  son divide, a few years ago. It is also  an interesting fact, m this connection,  that William Yolen Williams, of Phoenix, made the report on the property  on the strength of which' it was purchased.  Street Carnival at Grand Forks.  During the race meet at Grand  Forks, August 25th to 27th,it is proposed ' to hold a street carnival in  Grand Forks���something new, in this  section, at least. Directors so' far  chosen include M. R. Feeney, J. M  Ross, M. D. White, Peter Donaldson,  etc. , A chief feature of the carnival  will be the carnival queen, who is to  be selected after due consideration  frotii the candidates whose names will  be presented.  During the past week there have  been no new developments regarding  the consolidation which take.-, in the  Brooklyn groupjn this camp, but those  who seem to be in a position to know  assert that the matter will.be definitely  settled by the 10th of July at the latest,  and everything points to tbe deal being  a Successful one It is said that the  price at which th<* Brooklyn group will  be turned in to the underwriting syndi  cate for the Montreal and Boston Con  solidated Mining & Smelting Co., is  $480,000, in four payments of $r 20,000  each, and that one of these payments  has already bet n made. The other  mines, the Athlestan-Jackpot, Morrison,  three-fourths of the Emma, and the  Sunset, are put in, of course, at a much  less figure���the Brooklyn group being  the pivot around which the entire deal  revolves.  As has been noted, the new company has been incorporated in Canada  for $7,500,000, and it was given out  that the first meeting ot the members  of the new corporation was held this  wpek in New York city. A New York  paper, in commenting on the matter,  says the new company will have a working capital of $150,000, and that with  this splendid group of mines and an  already equipped smelter, "it expects,  within three months to be smelting  1,200 tons of ore per day day, at a net  profit of $2,500 per day, or a mining  profit of $917,000 per year. The ores  blocked out in the different mines at  present aggregate over one million  tons."  ���'-    '���*  All of which simply means that, in  a few weeks, at latest, there will be the  greatest activity on the Brooklyn hill,  where quietude has' reigned for three  years nearly, and that added prosperity  will be experienced in Phoenix.  On ibe Market.  The C.P.R. have now placed on the  market the Columbia & Western land  grant, extending from Coryell to Pen-  tiction. Those who claim to, know,  assert that there is a large area of excellent agricultural and timber lands  that can, bo obtained from the railway  company.  Grand I'orks Race Meet.  .The annualtace meet of the Grand  'orks Driving Park and Athletic  Association will be held this year on  August 25th, 26th and 27th. Some  $3,000, it is stated, will be offered in  prizes, and the secretary has already  received enquiries from Calgary, Spokane, Walla Walla, Pincher Creek, Col-  ville, etc., regarding the event. An  important event will be the Grand  Forks derby, distance seven-eighths of  a mile, for the Seagram cup and $300  additional.  Issued 18 Licenses  This week the semi-annual meeting  of the board of license commissioners  for the Boundary Creek License District was held at Grand Forks on Wednesday. On the recommendation of  Chief Licence Inspector Dinsmore, renewals were granted to 22 applicants,  three new licenses were granted, three  were'. granted conditionally and one,  by W. H. Dinsmore for the Globe  hotel, Fourth of July cr^ek, was refused. The new licences granted were  for L. A. Manly for the Copper Plate  hotel, Summit, to C, K, Simpson for  the Wayside hotel, near Columbia, and  to J. A. Bertois, for the,B. C, hotel at  Cascade.  Customs Office Hanging Fire.  Chief Inspector Mc Michael;*, of the  Canadian customs, did not visit Phoenix some weeks ago, as promised by  the department,, when strong representations were made for the establishment of a custom house here. Instead  he wrote to the offices at Grand Forks  and Greenwood, and discovered that  in the two places during the year 1903  there were dutiable goods imported to  Phoenix of a value of $31,065, on  which duty to the amount of $7,357.-  77 was collected. All but $148.70 of  this duty was collected at Grand Forks,  showing how far astray i.s the statement that Greenwood is so close to  Phoenix that no custom house is needed here. In addition to the dutiable  goods entered for Phoenix, there were  This month the Providence expects  to have an output of five cars of ore.  The diamond drill, in use on the  Bruce claim, at Midway, is now in  nearly 100 feet.,  It is reported that the improvements  being made by the B. C. Copper Co.  are being paid for .out of the profits.'  During May, in addition to shipping  some 46,000 tons of ore, 232 feet of  new development work was done at the  Granby mines.  W. A. Harkin and some of the Volcanic capitalists from Michigan, made  a visit of inspection to the. Iron Clad,  in Wellington camp, last Sunday.  It has been decided to blow out two  of the six furnaces at the Granby smelter about the first of July, to permit  putting on a new roof to the furnace  room.  Some beautiful ore is being exhibited from a late find in the Mavis by  Messrs. Kane and Trainner. They  are much encouraged in their preliminary development work. ''  As soon as Manager Shallenberger  returns from Minneapolis, development is to start on the Moreen, Dead-  wood camp, recently purchased "by  Minneapolis capitalists. ���  Messrs. Miller and Armstrong, who  recently bonded the Barbara, in Mayor  Naden's back yard, at Greenwood,  have put a force of men at work. The  showing is said to be good.  President S. H. C. Miner, of the  Granby Co., is expected to arrive in  the Boundary the latter part of the  month, on his annual trip of inspection  of the properties of the company.  Last month at one time 446 men  were on the payroll at the Granby  mines, the highest in the history of the  property. The number employed now  is somewhat less for the time being.  Work is now proceeding underground at the Mother Lode mine,  where it is understood that the ore is  of better grade than in the open quarries. The force of men employed at  this property continues Jo average 100  men.  F. D. Tower, of a Marquette, Mich.,  smelter, and L. C. Barlow, an engineer  of the same place, arrived in the Boundary Sunday, and are making headquarters at the Volcanic mine, while  making examinations of the properties  in this section.  It is said that the Iron Clad, 'Wellington camp, is showing up better than  ever this week, the pre being almost  identical with that of the Athelstan. A  flattering offer for the claim was refused this week by tbe owners, Messrs.  Rumberger, Porter and Farrell.  A.J. McMillan, managing director  of'., the LeRoi and Snowshoe companies, cabled to the old. :country recently that work was beginning on the  Great Northern branch to Phoenix,  which would give this camp access ^to  the Northport smelter, and admit of  Snowshoe ore being treated there.

Boyles Bros, have completed their  diamond drilling contract at the Volcanic mine, and have removed the outfit lo Orient, Wash. The officials of  the Volcanic who recently visited the  property, from Michigan, are ' said to  have been so pleased-'with the showings that the payments on the bond  are likely to be met on time. If this  is done, it will give no small impetus  to North Fork properties.  free  P.  for  _joods to the value of $;,8So  oenix entered at Grand Forks.  If Hon. William Paterson, minister  of customs at Ottawa, thinks that the  people of Phoenix- are giving up the  fight for the location of a custom  house here, he will find himself mistaken. As a matter of fact, we are  only just getting warmed up to the  subject, and the- figures published  serve, to make the need of such an  office here more plain.  Odd Fellows Elected Officers.  Snowshoe Lodge No. 46,1. O. O. F.,  has elected the following officers: Noble  grand, Alex Milkie; vice grand, Arthur  S. Williamson; treasurer, Tom Johnson; recording .secretary, George R.  Mead;'permanent financial secretary,  William Delahay.  The installation of officers will occur  on the 14th of July at Grand Forks,  when a joint installation of the new  officers of tlie three lodges of this order in the Boundary���including Gateway lodge of Grand Forks, and Boundary Valley lodge of Greenwood.���  At the last'installation the three lodges  inducted officers at Phoenix.

Burns& Jordan, whoarebuilding nine  miles of Great Northern  to Phoenix  1  at this end, now have a force of about  250 men on their pay roll, and are  putting more on as fast as they can be  used to advantage. Camps 2 and 3  are now fully established, and will  each soon have larger forces at work.  Ed. Burns, the senior member of the  firm, arrived from Spokane a few days  ago, and will be in the forefront from  now on. A number small contractors  have taken station work and started in,  and the contractors say that they think  they will be done some time in October.  Railway Notes.  The first monthly payday on the  railway will be on the 20th of July.  John Lane has secured a contract  for something like two miles of grading along Fourth of July creek.  Grading from the crossing of the  North Fork of Kettle river to the  Granby smelter, will be finished in a  month.  Joe Trombley has secured a contract for clearing a mile or two of right  of way, and will also make several  thousand ties.  The Grand Forks News-Gazette  states that there are now over 500 men  employed on the new line within ten  miles of that city.  Greenwood people now make short.  pilgrimages to Phoenix to see real, live  railway graders at work.    Greenwood's  turn will-tome next.  Antonio Scarpelli, a well known  veteran m railway contracting, has taken  a mile of heavy rock work from Burns  & Jordan, adjoining that of Pat  Hughes.  It is said that between   30  and 40  cars of black and giant powder will be  used, by the-contractors in their  blast- .  ing operations  between  Grand Forks  and Phoenix.  P. Burns & Co., who have the meat  contract for the  railway  contractors, -  have established a butcher shop a mile  and a   half below   Midway,   on   the  American side.  The bridge over the C. P. R. line  and over the North Fork of Kettle  river,and smelter dam, will be about  1,000 feet long. Porter Bros, will  build this and all other bridges and  trestles.  Residents of the Okanogan are jubilant over the commencement of construction work by the Great Northern,  as they can see the line headed their  way. By the engineers th'at have of" '  late been over there, it would seem  that there i.s reason for their belief.  Pat Hughes, who has a mile and .  one-half of the stiffest rock work on  the entire new line, as part of the  Burns & Jordan contract, has built a  warehouse in Phoenix, and is rapidly '  getting things in shape to make the  rock fly.

Dr. Sinclair's wounds  were contemptuously- ignored; the refusal of G. O. Buchanan shows that  the Laurier government has no use for  men of bminsj but Sir Wilfrid evidently felt that he owed a" debt of gratitude  to the man who had wasted his sub.  stance in the interests of the party.  Therefore, Hewitt Bostock carried oft*  the prize, while Dr. Sinclair and G. O.  Buchanan were not even honorably  mentioned.���Nelson Economist.  The Swlat ol ihe Sea.    "  Irene MaeColl.

Phoenix, B. C.  When the hew Montreal & Boston  Consolidated people finally get their  deal through, and the Brooklyn group  is working, as in days of James Breen,  Phoenix will undoubtedly be the best  mining camp in British Columbia. It  has been often said that the Granby  mines were the backbone of the Boundary and of course of Phoenix, but  that when the Brooklyn group was  working there would be a good chance  for the average man of- ability to lay  up something for a rainy day. This  time is evidently now getting closer  and closer.  **  ���Where there is so much smoke  there must be some fire, and many believe that, while particulars from reliable sources regarding the Brooklyn  deal are hotyet available, the deal is  an assured success, which another  month or two will amply prove. As  another straw we reprint the following  dispatch which was published last Saturday from New York:  J. Peck McSweyn, poet, philosopher  and friend, known in every newspaper  office in British Columbia, has made an  other move in his peripatetic orbit. He is  now injecting life into the columns of  the new Ymir Herald, and as his  ebullitions are wisely edited, ihey' add  to the brightness of that excellent  weekly.

"Ilave you  ever noticed,"' said an  old timer iu this camp to the Observer  this week, "how rarely it is that a good  man is continued as superintendent of  a large mine for.any number  o(  years  in British Columbia?   If you will look  back, you will recall that nearly all the  large   mines   of   this   province  have  changed superintendents several times  during the transformation of the properties  from    prospects  to producing  and paying mines.    But it Is different  in the case of the  Granby   Co..   Mr.  W. Y. Williams took hold of the properties here shortly after the Miner-  Graves syndicate obtained control, and  for more than six years he has had entire charge of the development,, which  has been carried on with such acknowledged and conspicuous success up to  the present.   And now, of course, as  is well known, Mr.- Williams is about  to give up active connection  because  of his health."  Neuralgic Headache Is Usually  Attended with blinding pain, but  relief comes quickly when Nerviline is  applied, for it is the strongest pain reliever in the world. "I consider Nerviline a most magical.remedy for neuralgia. "I am subject to violent attacks"  writes Mrs. E. G. Harris of Baltimore,  "but never worry if Nerviline is in the  house. The prompt relief that Nerviline brings makes it priceless to me.  A few applications never yet failed to  kill tlie pain. I can also recommend  Nerviline for stiffness in the joints and  rheumatism." Try Nerviline yourself.  Price 25.  EASTERN  TOWNSHIPS  BANK  Dividend No. 89.

This will  give some idea  of the amount qf rqcVwark  that will  be doue before James J.   Hill's  locomotives wili do much  whistling  in or  near Phoenix.    It is said that one hun  dred cars of powder were used in the  construction of the C. P. R.  into the  Boundary.    Boundary   railways   have  been good patrons of the powder companies, among others.  <��  How much wood would awoodchuck  chuck, if a woodchuck would chuck  wood? It's hard to say.

Organs are  taken out and scraped and polished  and put back, or they may be removed  entirely; bones are spliced; pipes take  the place of diseased sections of veins;  antiseptic dressings are applied to  wounds, bruises, burns and like injuries before .inflammation sets in,  which causes them to heal without  maturation and in. one-third the time  required by the old treatment. Chamberlain's Pain Balm acts on this same  principle. It is, an antiseptic and  when applied to such injuries, causes  them to heal very quickly. It always  allays the pain and soreness. Keep a  bottle of Pain Balm in your home and  it will save you time and money, not  to mention the inconvenience and suffering which such injuries entail. For  sale by all druggists.  No Competition.  The uniform success of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea  Remedy in the relief and cure of bowel  complaints both in children and adults  has brought it into almost universal  use, so that it is practically without a  rival, and as everyone who has used it  knows, is without an equal.
