POST-OFFICE STORE.  With the.advent of party lines in  provincial politics, and an election certain to be brought on this fall, there is  considerable speculation already in the  two Boundary ridings, Greenwood and  Grand Forks, as to who will be the  standard bearers of the different parties. So far the chief activity noticeable, seems to-have. been among the  liberals and conservative.4;, but it is gen-  eraily understood that there will be a  labor or socialist-labor ticket in the  field also. ..Phoenix is in the newly  created Grand Forks riding or electoral district, and- will have the largest  number . of 'votes outside of Grand  Forks itself. Consequently, the politicians at the Forks are naturally ��� desirous of working in conjunction with  those of a similar political faith "here.  It seems to be practically settled that  conventions will bo held by delegates  from each locality in the riding, probably at Grand Forks; and nominations  made.  Tne liberals are already actively in  the field, and have organized recently  at Cascade and also at. Eholt, the latter being in Greenwood riding, this being already practically completed in the  larger towns, at least by the liberals,  liut the conservatives are awake also,  and if indications count, will put up a  'Stiff'fi'ght:'"'"       ���'".������'>'  W. H. Bambury, secretary of the  Phoenix Trades and Labor Council,  states that there will undoubtedly be  a labor ticket in the field. Who the  candidate will be has, of course, not  yet been decided. There has been  some talk of running J. J. Caulfield,  a prominent citizen of Greenwood,  in this riding, while J. W. Foulston,  president of the Federal Labor Union  in Grand Forks, is also spoken of.  The labor convention will also probably be held at Grand Forks.  Apparently there are quite a number who are willing to sacrifice themselves for the country's good, and in  the course of a few weeks doubtless  others will appear who would act as  Boundary's representatives at Victoria  if the honor was thrust upon them.  On the liberal side \V, H, 1", Clement,  of Grand Forks, or perhaps Alex. Miller or Lloyd A. Manly, would be willing to stand, while for the conservatives Mayor Burrell, of the Forks, is  understood to be not averse to making  the run, if lie gets the opportunity.  The man in Phoenix who has been  spoken of in tlie conservative interests  is Mayor Rumberger, but he states  that he has no desire whatever to go  to Victoria in an official capacity.  However, Mr. Rumbergcr's conservative friends think that he would be  sure of election, and would like to see  him nominated.  In Greenwood riding there is no  dearth of willing candidates already,  with others to hear from. Duncan  Ross, of the Greenwood Times, is  working for the liberal cause as usual,  and it is said would no,t tl^rqw away  the nqm.jna.tiQn. himself jf it came to  him, Then T|iqs. J. Hardy, another  good liberal, well known all over the  Boundary, has been spoken of by the  liberals. J. R. Brown, the solicitor, is  also spoken of in this connection. For  the conservatives in Greenwood, Solicitor Shaw seems to be referred to as  much as any one as a likely man to  stand.  From Rossland it is said that Smith  Curtis contemplates running somewhere: in the Boundary, but so far the  present member has nqt spqken for  publication.  Local Conservflllycs Meet,  Wednesday evening a meeting was  hold of the faithful in "the local conservative ranks, and plans outlined for  the coming political battle. After discussing the situation it was decided to  call a general meeting of conservatives,  or liberal-conservatives, as 'they*prefer  to be called,  next  Tuesday  evening.  The present officers 'of ihe association  are: James Punch, President; W.  1'. Cochrane, Secretary.  Liberals Elect ftew Officers.  ..Thursday evening the liberals of  Phoenix-met and elected the following  officers: President, Wm. Delahay; 1st  Vice-President, M, rt. Roy; 2d Vice-  President, J. 15. Boyle; 3d Vice-President, John McRae; Secretary-treasurer,  E. H. Mortimer; Executive Committee, the above-named and j. E. Mills,  A. J. McDonald, T..J., Hardy, N.

Thursday Police Magistrate Williams heard the'case against W. M.  DuBray, who is charged by D. A. Mc-  Pherson with assault with intent to do  bodily harm. After aguments by  counsel, W. 13. Cochrane appearing  for McPh.crson, and Solicitor McLeod  for DuBray, the prisoner was held for  trial at the county court, which will be  held'by-Judge Learn y at Greenwood,  in $500 bail, which was furnished-  The case has created' no little attention, and its outcome is awaited with  considerable interest.-.-'  109 MEN AT  THE SNOWSHOE  RACE MEET AT GRAND FORKS.

Unanimous Verdict.  From our many articles the past few-  weeks received from various sources it  will be seen that th'e comedy farce,  "A Wise Woman," is a strictly first  class attraction with more originality  and novel features than any company  that has yet visited'W..'. It remains to  be seen how they will'be appreciated.  At Miners' Union hall, Saturday, June  13th.  LOCAL JOTTINGS  No meeting of the city council was  held this week.  J..T. Lawrence, of Grand Forks,  was in the city last Saturday.  Marshall <!t Shea, of the Bellevue  hotel moved this week to the Brooklyn  hotel. .  Miss Boultbee, of Rossland, has  been visiting Mrs. R. D. Morkill this  week.  White Cooks and Waiters' Union  No. 1 24 will install new officers on the  2 2d inst.  Thursday evening the managers of  the Presbyterian church held n business meeting.  Mails for all points now close at the  Phoenix postofrice at 2 p. m., sharp,  and arrive at 3 p. m.  Next Tuesday evening an ice cream  social will he held at the Presbyterian  church by the Indies' Aid.  Superintendent J. W. Astley, of the  Snowshoe mine, is spending a short  time at Victoria, where Mrs, Astley  has been-for a month.  President Miner, of the Granby Co.,  was in the city yesterday, accompanied  by Assistant Manager Galer. They  came by way of Greenwood.  A bill to incorporate the Vancouver  and Coast-Kootenay railway, to run  from Vancouver to Midway, was passed in the railway conmpttee at QUawa  Wednesday.  H, IS\ G  were in the city early this week from  Grand Forks, on official business connected with the local water and lighting companies.  Patrick Atkins was taken- to Nelson  this week by Constable Darraugh, to  stand trial for having attempted suicide  here a few weeks ago, since which time  he has been in the hospital.  The scrap iron special on the C.P.R.  visited Phoenix last Tuesday on its  first trip. It is a train t\[i\t gqes, qyer-  the road picking up broken rails, wheels  and qther railway iron, which are utilised again by the founders,  A large number attended the Catholic dance and raffle at Miners' Union  hall Thursday evening, the event being a pronounced success. A handsome  sum being cleared by the ladies for the  church building fund. The gold watch,  was won by Dan Afa-thison, of the  Snowshoe mine.  This week has been another record  breaker for one of Boundary's leading  mines���the Snowshoe���both as to the  number of men employed' and for the  the tonnage of ore sent out to the  Boundary Creek smelters. On the  Snowshoe payroll, which' has been  steadily increasing for several weeks,  there are now just about 100 names���  the greatest number in the entire history  of the property. In regard to ore shipments, a reference to the Pioneer's  weekly ore table, which is kept corrected to date, will show that this last week  2,100 tons of ore were sent out���also  a nm- record.  General work at the Snowshoe has  been progressing most satisfactorily,  and ore is being sent out from several  parts of the mine, with the main shaft  yet to hear from in this connection.  The ore from the newly opened glory  hole, at the end of the No. 2 spur, is  said to be some of the best yet shipped from the mine.  On the main incline shaft, down below the third level, the work of timbering the bottom part and of putting  in the ore pocket is now nearly or quite  completed, and it only remains to lay  the rails for the two-ton skips to travel  on for the shaft to be fully equipped to  contribute 500 tons or more easily per  day to the output of the mine. The  shaft will be operated with the 150  h. p. electric hoist ��� the largest hoist  in.the Boundary ��� which as been installed and ready for business for some  weeks past. Another fortnight will  doubtless see this fine machine in complete and successful operation.  About the middle ������ of July the new  150 h. p. boiler, ordered some months  ago from the Jenckes Machine Co., of  Sherbrooke, Quebec, is expected to  arrive and be installed at the mine.  This will be the largest single boiler  yet installed at a Boundary mine.  Annual Celebration of   Dominion Day al Ihe  Smeller City.  Posters were sent out this week announcing the annual race meet and  Dominion Day celebration for this  year at Grand Forks, which will be  held July 1 and 2, as usual. The  event will take place under the auspices of the Grand Forks Driving Park  and Athletic Association, and some  $2,500 have been hung up in prizes  for the different events.  One of the special features will be  the Grand Forks derby, one mile, with  a substantial purse 0/ $400, there of  course being other horse races and  various athletic sports. Joseph E.Seagram, the prominent turf patron  and distiller, of Waterloo, Ont., has  donated' a $500 cup for competition,  and the event will ,be known as the  Seagram handicap, distance ^jths  mile, open to Canadian and American  three year olds-and upwards. The association has'added $300 cash prize  to the Seagram event. The track at  Grand Forks is now in excellent condition for racing.   -  . Word was received in Phoenix that  $200 had been set aside for hose reel  races, and an invitation to the Phoenix  hose teams to compete was extended.  The local fire fighters would like to be  there, and if there is a possible chance  to get a light cart to practice, they will  take part, the carts owned by the city  hot being suitable for that purpose.

Monday evening a meeting of the  Phoenix Tennis Club was held at the  office of 1 )r. R. I". Boucher, when the  following were elected for this season ;  President, G. W. Rumberger; Vice-  President, Dr. R. B. Boucher; Secretary-treasurer: O. B. Smith, Jr.; committee on grounds, J. J. Strutzel, Geo.  McNichol, C. H. Flood, L. Y. Birnie,  and Chas. D. Hunter. The grounds  used last year have been placed in.  condition for play and will probably  be used today for the first time. 11 is  expected that mutch games with clubs  from Grand Forks and Greenwood,  as in previous years, will be arranged  during the season.  Improved Train Service.  This week a change in the time  table on the Phoenix branch of the C.  P. R., to.uk place, Passengers to and  from Phoenix no longer have to wait  an hour or more at Eholt before proceeding to their destination. The train  now arrives at Phoenix at 2.45, and  leaves at 2.55 p. 111., making close connections both ways. By this schedule,  also, there is little danger of the passenger train on the Phoenix branch  being stalled behind the slow-going  ore trains, as there is only time to  make the needed connections. Ed.  Stirling is now the conductor on the  Phoenix run.  Wm. Fowler struck the quartz ledge  on the Defiance this week, one of the  high grade properties near Greenwood.  J. J. Campbell, of the Hall Mines  smelter, who have a bond on the Emma,  spent several days at the property this  week.  Wednesday was the monthly paypay  at the Granby minesj when about $25,-  000 was distributed in wages alone.  Next Monday is the regular Snowshoe  payday.  About 756 tons of ore have been  sent out from the Emma mine recently  to the Granby smelter, half the amount  contracted for. For the present, shipments have been again discontinued,  and development is being prosecuted.  W. H. Thomas, consulting engineer  for the B. C. Copper Co., owning the  Mother Lode mine and smelter, after  spending a couple of months in the  district, left this week for his home in  New York. He is better satisfied than  ever with the prospects of the Boundary and his own mines.  The Iron Dollar claim, south of the  Oro Denoro, in Summit camp, has  been purchased by the Denoro Mines,  Ltd., from J. W. Cheer. Considerable  work has been done on the Iron Dollar, and there is an excellent showing  of copper. A force of men is steadily  at work on the Oro Denoro, and when  the contemplated spur is put in shipments will be started.  Manager Rogers, of the Nickel Plate  group in the Similkameen, has contracted for a complete electric plant, which  it is said will cost $100,000 when installed. It will light the mines, mill,  etc., and furnish power. V.: li. Miller,  of Seattle, of the Westinghouse lilec-  tric and Mfg. Co., who furnished the  large plant at the Granby mines, secured the order.  The U. B. of R. li.   strike  at Vancouver has been called off.  Last Saturday J. C. Haas, M. Ii., of  Spokane, was in the city for the purpose of making an expert report on  the Nellie Cotton and Mystic mineral  claims in this camp, a well-known  group located south of and almost adjoining the Granby group. Mr. Haas  is one of the old-timers in the  Boundary, having been interested in  some of the most prominent claims in  the several camps, and having also  obtained his degree as mining engineer  from the Michigan College of Mines.  The Nellie Cotton was located in  1895 by James Sutherland, and at one  time was bonded by W. T. Smith, who  did some $5,000 worth of development work; The Mystic, Which is now  in the group, was located at a later  date, and adjoins the Nellie Cotton.  The latter has what is considered, an  excellent showing of pyrrhotite ore,  running rather better in values than  most of the claims in this camp.  The Nellie Cotton has latterly been  owned by Hal J. Cole, of Spokane,  and about a month ago Col. Ridpath,  who was made rich in tbe Le Roi  mine, visited the claim and made an  examination of it. The following recent dispatch from Greenwood shows  that the group has recently been' taken  over by.Chicago-capitalists : ':  Greenwood, June 6.���H. J. Cole  has received $10,000 as a first payment on a bond on two properties'  which he has owned near Phoenix in  Greenwood camp. The purchasers  are J. E. Ever hart, W. D. Everhart  vnd Max Sands, all of Chicago. J. E.  Everhart formerly lived in Spokane.  The two properties sold are the Nellie  Cotton and the Mystic. ���  Dissolution Next Tuesday.  Victoria, June 9. ���Charles Wilson  was sworn in as president of the council last night. R. F. Green takes,  temporarily, the portfolio of provincial  secretary, Dissolution is announced  for Tuesday, June 16th.  Rev. E. P. Flewelling, vicar of S.  John's Church of England, has been  attending the synod of the diocese o  Kootenay this week. As he will not  return till next week, there will be no  services in his church tomorrow.  Geo. L. Pedlar, eye specialist, wil  make his regular visit to Phoenix July  3rd and 4th. If you suffer from headaches or eye discomfort do not fail to  consult him and receive a skilled examination by the most perfect testing  appliances made.  Greenwood Typographical Union  this week elected the following officers:  President, J. L. Meikle; Vice-President, H. S. Turner; Secretary-Treasurer. G. A. Evans. The meeting was  held at Grand Forks Tuesday afternoon, the union having jurisdiction al  over the Boundary.  Will Build a New ljne,  E. G. W-ar-ren, manager of the Greenwood Electric Co,, was in the city this  week, and stated that he would shortly  begin the construction of a new and  short pole line to connect below the  city with the line from the Cascade  Power Co.'s sub-station hire. The  survey has already been made, and the  line will run through the Old Ironsides,  Banner, Boston, a,i\d Moscow mineral  cJuiniK to a connection with the present  line to Greenwood, just below the  city.

The liberals of Kholt and vicinity  have organized the Eholt Liberal Association. J. R. Brown, president of  the Greenwood Liberal Association,  and Duncan Ross, secretary of the In-  lerior District Liberal Council, were  present and assisted in the work of organization. There was a representative  attendance. Officers were elected as  follows: 1're.sident, R. H. Anderson;  vices-president, D. J. McDonald; secretary-treasurer, J. W. McKinnon. The  above officers and Fred Kaiser and  San McOrmand constitute the executive,  B. C MINING  It appears to be the opinion of most  of the politicians that some thing good  lias been finally  evolved at   Victoria  out of the disgraceful scramble that has  been going on there for the  last year  or two.   In the first place,  it seems  that the  Dunsmuir-Prior combination  has been invited to go 'way back and  sit down, and that straight party lines  will be given a trial at the polls in this  province at the next' election.     There  is one thing absolutely certain, and  that is that the result can not be any  worse than we have had in the last two  or three elections, at least.  Premier McBride is being criticised  by some of his erstwhile friends for the  manner in which he, was called to form  a government, but the country at large  seems glad that party lines will at last  prevail in British Columbia.  For the time being the conservatives  seem to have the advantage, because  they have the government, and that  undoubtedly means no small advantage.  But the liberals are not a bit daunted,  and have already opened the provisional campaign with a good deal of enthusiasm. The conservatives seem to  be figuring largely on the liberal vote  being split by Joseph Martin, but the  wily Joseph having thus ' early in the  game resigned the leadership of the  liberal party in the province, will none  the'less be heard from when the cam  paign is in full swing.  The great advantage of a-party government is that some one will be held  responsible for the blunders that ��� may  be committed by those who happen ,to  be in power. Politicians universally  seem to agree that it will be to the  general advantage of the province,  irrespective of which party is successful  at the polls next September. " For all  of which let us give heartfelt thanks.  OPTIMISTS AND KNOCKERS.  In all localities it is not difficult for  the discerning to find two classes of  men, who are usually well known by  those with whom they are thrown in  business contact. One class is composed of men who believe in looking  on the bright side of anything and  everything���in short, who say all the  good they can about their town and  neighbors, and if for any reason, they  do not like their surroundings they seek  other fields with as little noise as possible. The other class rarely have a  good word for the town or section in  which they happen to have cast their  lot, unless their is such a boom on that  any fool could not help making money.  In short, because they have made mistakes in business, judgment, they  blame anybody and everybody, instead  of themselves.  To show the utter absurdity of the  position taken by the last named class,  we have known of persons who have  located, for instance, in Phoenix. It  was a gamble with them, pure and  simple, as to whether it was a wise  business move, as their line was already overdone here, but the chance  was taken, the venture was not successful, the enterprise given ; up, and another move made to another place. In  some cases a return to the first place  was made in due time, although that  same place had been roundly damned  ���and simply because of poor judgment.  Probably the most despicable of all i  A smelter will be built at Qu.ttsino.  A. Smith has bonded the Gibson  group on Kaslo creek.  Various mines around Sandon are  increasing their forces.  The total number of miners working  around Slocan City is placed at 70.  The Copper King at Kamloops has  arranged to ship to Crofton smelter.  Zinc tests carried  on at  the Trail  smelter have been highly satisfactory.  ��  Over 6'100 tons of ore  have  been  shipped from the Slocan district-so far  this year.  The Gibson group, on the south  fork of Kaslo creek has been bonded  by Alex. Smith of the Surprise.  S. S. Fowler, M. E., who has been  on a visit to the Paradise mine on Foley  creek, reports the property continuing  to turn out well under development.  The directors of the Dundee Gold  Mining company have issued a pamph  let to the shareholders outlining the  company's position in respect to finances  Rossland's ore shipments last, week  were as follows: Le Ro',3,570; Centre Star, 1,440; War Eagle, 1,380; Le  Roi No. 2, 735; White Bear, 30; Velvet, 100; Kootenay, 300; total for the  week, 7,555 tons; for the year to date,  156,707. tons.  and suggesting means whereby a better  condition of affairs can be brought  about. Their proposal is to issue 8  per cent debentures to the amount of  $4o;ooo; and with the funds thus secured to wipe out the mortgage of  $30,000, on the company's property  and to arrange other liabilities.  The annual report of the mines department shows the mineral production of this province for the past year  to be greater than that of the Yukon;  that we have in our mineral deposits a  "Klondike of our own, and a permanent and growing one at that. The  Yukon is credited with an output of  $18,000,000, while British Columbia  produced $20,086,780.  The work mapped out for the Canadian Geological Survey for this part of  the country is as follows: R. W.  Brock will investigate silver-lead, copper, and other ore deposits of the  Kootenay districts. D. B. Dowling  will make detailed surveys of the coal  bearing strata of the foothill district  east of the Rockies and in the Bow  River Pass in Alberta. W. Leach will  continue his work on the coal deposits  of British Columbia.  Advertise for Ihe Dollar.  In the beginning a man who had  something to sell went ahead and told  his friends.

It is reported that the New Zealand  government offers a bonus of 8 cents  per pound for production of the first  100,000 pounds of quicksilver in that  country.  I. H. Stratton, son of the late W. S.  Stratlon, has accepted $350,000 as a  settlement of the claim filed against the  estate of his father, the estate paying  the fee of the litigant.  The Gladhough copper property,Yal-  dez, Alaska, has been sold to the Mitchell Copper Company, represented by  \V. S. Gage, for the reported consideration of $1,000,000.  In Cripple Creek the dividends paid  during the month of April were as follows: Portland, $90,000; Vindicator,  $55,000; Mary McKinney, $30,000;  Strong, $25,000, and "\caeia, $14,339.  Arizona's output of copper in the  year 1900 was 141,000,000 pounds,  which, valued at 14 cents, would yield  $20,000,000. Of the total the product  was divided among the following properties: Copper Queen, 36,000,000;  United Verde, 35,000,000, and Arizona  Copper Company, 32,000,000 pounds.  D. J.

It is genius to wait, but it is business to advertise for the thing you are  waiting for.  An advertisement without common  sense is about as badly off as a bird  without instinct.  There are men in business who are  good business men, but who are doing  a larger business if they are good advertisers than they could if they let the  advertising go.  Some merchants say advertising does  not pay as well as it ought, and others  say little but prove the value of advertising by doing that which is sure to  sell the goods.

John Stanton; one of the eastern di-  rectors1 of the Granby Co., had  some interesting things to say about  copper and the ability of the Granby  Co. to mine it cheaply, when he. was  in this camp lust week. The following  is a part of his remarks:  "Experience has shown   that   when  the price is down consumption increases  very largely, and new uses  for  copper  are found.    In time consumption tells  upon and overtakes production.    This  tends to establish a  balance  between  supply and demand.     The  two,   with  varying differences, run in parallel lines.  The producer has had the best of it this  year.    Copper has advanced from 11 */,  cents in January to 15 cents,   the current price.    1 don't  look for higher  prices, hut see nothing indicating a decline in the near future;   though   there  may he sjig||t  fluctuations.     1   don't  pretend lo look further ahead than anybody else.    Nobody can predict conditions six months ahead.    A few years  ago the L'nited Slates  Metals  Selling  Company had a surplus of., copper aggregating   between   200,000,000  and  300,000,000 pounds;    Fifteen months  later that surplus had  been  absorbed,  whilst production meantime had increased 1 o per cent.  Can -��cv at Seven Ceali.  "1 believe the Granby can operate at  a profit, no matter to what figure copper might fall. With that corporation  it is only a question of increasing or diminishing profit. I think the Granby,  with the advantage of gold and silver  in its ores, can produce copper at a  price that would "put less favored mines  out of business. Certain Michigan  mines, now operating at a profit would  be compelled to close down if copper  fell l>el6w 12 cents. The Granby has  not yet begun to extract ore on a large  scale. When the capacity of. the smelter is increased copper will he produced at a much lower figuae. 1 think.I  am well within the mark when I state  that it is practicable for the Granby to  produce and market the metal at a cost  of 7 cents' per pound, and possibly  lower. There are very few mines that  could do likewise.  "I admire the pluck and resolution  with which S. H. C. Miner has handled  this big enterprise from its inception.  Credit is also due Jay P. Graves, who  has displayed a marvelous grasp of  every detail. The affairs of the company have certainly been administered  with a high degree of intelligence."  Mr. Stanton also made a reference to  the recent acquisition of coal lands in  Alberta by a syndicate headed by A.  C. Flumerfelt, assistant to President  Miner. "Tbe coke question," he added,  "is a burning problem with the Granby  Unless- I am much mistaken it will  soon be solved bv Mr. Flumerfelt."  $-  THE OBSERVATORY  TlllKCH  'i'ALKKil III'   AT  Home ami Klskhhi'.ih  I  ^   A dispatch from Morrissey Mines  states that the ('row's Nest Pass Coa  Co. has fully decided to install 500  more coke ovens at that place as soon  as the 250 ovens now under construction have been completed. These reports about such a large numbeJ of  coke ovens to be built some time in  the indefinite future are getting tiresome to those who have been waiting  now for a year or more for previous  promises to be fulfilled. This last re  port has the appearance of an effort to  boom the new townsite where the dispatch originated. .  ���*���,.������  It is now reported that the Chinese  recently imported to Fast Kootenay,  for the purpose of working on the drawing of coke ovens, have been let out-  It was demonstrated clearly that the  Celestials could not begin to do the  same amount of work as the white men,  even when the lower rate of wages was  taken into consideration. Those opposed to Chinese-labor have thus had  their ideas endorsed in an unexpected  but none the less welcome.manner.  Our exchanges are full of the reports  of floods and washouts that have been  afflicting sister towns in Kootenay and  Yale, much to the discomfiture of the  residents of those places. It is one of  the advantages of living in Phoenix  that we are never troubled with such  things, arid that in summer we have  one of the most comfortable of climates,  while in winter it is always warmer here  than in any other place^n the Boundary���little facts that can be readily  proven by the weather bureau.  Of course,, readers of. the Pioneer  would not have to run across, a paragraph like the following to remind them  that the editor of this paper is an expert in writing receipts. The item referred to appeared in the Minneapolis  Messenger, and reads as follows:  "There i$ a little matter to which  the Me$$enger beg$ to call the attention of |ome of it$ $ub$cril)er$. We  really hate to $peak of fit, but $ome  $eemingly allowed it to $lip their mind$.  To u$ thi$ i$ a very important i$$ue;  in fact it'$ nece$$ary in our bu$ine$$.  We won't $peak further on the $ubject.  Perhap$ you have already gue$$ed the  drift of our remarks."  ����  For the first time in nearly four years,  the Pioneer this week has a new dress,  and we are constrained to quote the  language of an esteemed contemporary  on a similar occasion, who remarked  that it did not come from Timothy  Eaton, either.
