The marriage of Claybourne Franklin Vivian to Miss Alice Runels took  place at Midway on the 14th inst.  Martin Burrell, M.P. for Yale Cariboo, and Mrs. Burrell returned to  Grand Forks Tuesday from Ottawa.  ] Rev. F. V. Venables of Greenwood  returned Saturday from attending the  synod of the Anglican church at Nelson.  Principal Keller has resigned from  the Grand Foiks school staff to accept  a similar position at New Westminster.  The skeleton of a man was found on  Joe Caron's ranch at Boundary Falls,  which had evidentally been there for  years.        .  Mrs. P. F.

Alfred Arnold shipped two carloads  of horses from Midway to Yorkton,  Sask. The horses were principally  from the range at Inkenip and Sidley.  The water in the Kettle river rose to  within five feet of the bridge at Boundary Falls last week. Powder was  used to clear the logging timbers and  prevent a jam.  F. Matheson, a brakeman on one of  the slag trains at the Granby smelter,  missed his footing in front of a dinkey  engine and was run over. Little hope  is entertained for his recovery.  The confidence expressed by this  old esrablished firm as to the future  business stability of Phoenix hi deciding to erect such large premises speaks  well for the city, and there are undoubtedly others who will follow the laid  taken by E. A. Black in building-up  Knob Hill avenue.  1  BACK PROM FORT QEOKOE  MORE WOES FOR  F. AUGUST HEINZE  Federal   Grand   Jury   Indicts  Former Copper King Again  New York, June 16.���The federal  grand jury today handed down indictments against F. Augustus Heinze,  head of the United Copper company;  People From Various Countries Now TrekKlof  10 the   Norlhero Interior A  Chas. D. Hunter, of the Hunter-  Kendrick company, returned Saturday  from a trip with A. W. Wright, to the  Fort George country, where they are  interested in a considerable acreage.  They went by stage from Ashcrofuto  Quesnel and were passengers on the  first boat on the Fraser river from  Quesnel to Fort George, the boat,; as  yet, not being completed. Going up  the river took four days, while the return trip down stream was made in a  day. Salt meats and vegetables were  the principal provisions on board,  though deer and a moose seen on ithe  shore were secured to help replenish  the larder. J r  Although the country is full ofpros-  pectors' stakes, Mr. Hunter states that  there is still considerable land to be  had within a few miles of Fort George.  It is principally bench land, above the  river bed, and while it will take time  and money to clear the prbpertyj the  land should eventually become -^valuable. . Each.persojfi staking land;if^required to have it surveyed; 'as yet little  government surveying has been done,  but while returning to Ashcroft Mr.  Hunter met the government survey  party going in to do work along the  valley. They will spend the summer  there and will also do contract work  for those staking land.  On their return trip down the trail  from Quesnel they met large numbers  from all parts of the continent heading  for the interior, the majority of whom  appeared to be going to the Nechaco  valley. Several parties of the "don  cher 'now" type were also met with trekking northward with numerous pack  horses, the packs revealing a full supply  of golf sticks, tennis racquets, cricket  bats, silk hats and dress suits and other  paraphernalia suitable for tbe "swell"  functions they are looking forward to  in the northern wilds.  Operations commenced to open up  the coal seam recently discovered hear  Midway.  The trestlework for the tramway  at the Phoenix Amalgamated is about  completed.  The second payment of $5,000 was  made on the Bruce properties at Mid.  way last week.  A joint stock'company is being incorporated, to develop the Le Roi property, near Bridesville.  A force of men have been put to  work putting the Sunset mine in shape  to commence operations.  General Manager J. E. McAllister  of the British Columbia Copper company returned from the coast on Saturday.  Prospects are bright for the resump  tion of work on the Providence mine  from which some excellent ore has  been shipped.  Wire connections with the power  line at Greenwood have been made to  the Bay mine, and electricity is now  being used in connection with the driving of the tunnel at depth.  W. H. Rambo, who' is developing  the Rambler mine on Wallace moun  tain, is urging the claims of the properties in that vicinity for the construction  of a wagon road. A good road would  be a boon to prospects in that locality.  It is proposed to sink a shaft in  Rock creek near, the old crossing for  the purpose of testing the creek for  heavy placer gold. The creek has  never been bottomed, owing to the  finding of quicksand by the old methods  and it is thought that deep down there  will be found large quantities of the  yellow metal. Such a discovery would  create, great excitement in all the territory west of Greenwood.���Ledge.  THE NEW DOMINION COPPER  Appoints Management���Expects to Operate  Properties in August  (Special to the Phoenix Pionoer.) .:..,.'.���....,,.  New York, June 18���The. receivership in connection  with the former Dominion Copper company, at Phoenix and  Boundary Falls, ends today; the New Dominion Copper company take charge today, P. F. Roosa has been appointed  manager and Charles Rundberg superintendent. The new  company expect to commence operations in August.  The above message indicates Ithat the reorganization of the New Dominion Copper company is in progress. ; From other official resources we  learn that provision is being made for the payment of the wages due former  employees at the mines, which totals about $r8,ooo. Although no intimation  is given as to when the money will be forthcoming, the cheques will undoubtedly be issued before resumption of operations at the properties..

"I HI IWW  SeelBR tbe Eclipse  Local astromers strained their necks  and looked heavenward to get a glimpse  of the phenomenon in the world of  spheroids Thursday afternoon. Some  report having observed the eclipse  with the assistance of glasses, but business generally was not interrupted.  Biildlat li Prface Rupert  Word comes from James McRae,  who is managing McRae Bros.' store  at Prince Rupert, that work has been  commenced on their new stationery  store in the G.T.P. terminal city, being  erected on the $5ooo-lot purchased at  the recent sale. It is in the same  block as the Bank of Commerce and  in the next block to the lot which was  sold at the sale for $16,000. Piles  have to be driven to secure a foundation, the city authorities not permitting  posts. A great many people are now  aniving in the city and building  generally has commenced.  Carney Copper Locator Here  James Carney, ofMullan, Idaho, the  original locator of the famous Carney  mine, was a visitor in Phoenix this  week. He states that the recent strike  in the Carney is 18 in. or more of ore,  running about 20% copper. Mr. Carney has been mining nearly forty years  and says that if there is a property in  the Coeur d' Alenes that will make a  mine it is the Carney! He also states  that .the. Reindeer has ^struck Jour feet  of fine copper ore In" the 3000-foot  tunnel. Several new strikes have recently been made around- Mullan and  capital is being attracted from every  direction.  Phoealx Doctor Hoaored  Dr. W. H. Dickson on Monday received word from Vancouver that he  had been elected vice-president of the  Society of McGill Graduates of British  Columbia at its annual meeting in that  city last week. As graduates of the  various professions are members of the  society, the honor done Dr. Dickson  in his absence is no slight one. The  announcement was a surprise to the  doctor, as he had not considered himself in line for the position.  Times Uodjr New Management  J. M. Millar and A. M. Davidson,  who have been running the Boundary  Creek Times at Greenwood for some  time, left on Saturday for Granum,  Alberta, where they commence the  publication of a new paper. While regretting to lose them in the Boundary  journalistic field, their many friends  wish them every success in their new  venture in sunny Alberta. They have  been succeeded in the management of  the Times by Noyes & McDonald,  Greenwood, who have engaged Ed.  Rowlands in charge of the mechanical  department.  Howe-Wilson  On Wednesday evening at 5 o'clock  a pleasing ceremony was performed by  the Rev. T. W. Hall at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Mahon on  Second street, when Miss Margaret  Delcus, daughter of Cannon Wilson of  Winnipeg, was joined in marriage to  Albert Gibson Howe, of Phoenix  The ceremony was witnessed by the  mother and brother of the bride, besides a few special friends. The wedding breakfast was all that could be  desired. The young coupie left on the  southbound train, through the Arrow  lakes, en route to Phoenix, where they  will make their home.���Revelstoke  Mail.  THIEVING SUSPECTS  IN POLICE COURT  They Are Committed for Trial  at Greenwood  Mike Basta, Steve Basta and Joe  Matich, the three Austrians gathered  in last week by the police on the suspicion of being prime movers in the  mysterious disappearance of general  dry goods from clothes lines and other  articles too numerous to mention, ap  peared before Magistrate Hood on  Monday.  Mike's sleeping quarters were in a  room at the Old Ironsides hotel but  he claimed association with other pals,  whose rendezvous until arrested was in  a cabin near the C.P.R. city terminal.  A search of both places revealed a  profusion of lace window curtains, white  bed spreads, a wholesale supply of  eggs, cargo of baking powder, and a  supply of hardware arid tools sufficient  to outfit any mechanic. When deposited at the local police office the  majority of the plunder was identified  by citizens who claimed ownership.  The charge of theft was lodged  against Mike Basta and at the preliminary hearing six pairs of lace curtains,  found neatly stored under the mattress  of his bed, were produced and identified by witnesses as the identical  articles which disappeared from the  clothesline of the Brooklyn hotel on  the night of May 31. His Honor  committed Mike, who is to appear for  trial at Greenwood before Judge Brown.  Steve Basta, a cousin of Mike's, and  Joe Matich, charged with having stolen  goods in their possession, were committed for trial at Greenwood and admitted to bail. Later, on complaints  of sureties that they intended leaving  town, these gentlemen were re-arrested  and sent to Greenwood.  A saloon keeper was reported for  gambling, and on confessing guilt was  fined $20.  A transient was arrested Wednesday  evening on suspicion or vagrancy, and  was dismissed with caution. |  W. P. Tierney, C.P.R. contractor,  and his son, J. B. Tierney were in  town Saturday evening. On Sunday  morning they drove over the proposed  route of the branch from Hartford  Junction to Central camp, and consulted with Engineer H.B. Walkem in  connection with the profile. Mr.  Tierney's steam shovels are now repairing C.P.R. roads in the Kootenay  which were damaged by the recent  floods, and when that work is completed, some time next month, work  will be commenced in constructing the  line as far as Wellington camp. The  road for the first three miles is already  cross-sectioned.  The survey party, under the direction of H. B. Walkem, which has been  located near the Jackpot for some  weeks, moved their camp several miles  south to the City of Paris mine this  week.  Travelling Engineer Pine of Vancouver was in town Monday evening  with Superintendent Allan Purvis and  Trainmaster J. A. Cameron of Nelson  in their private car consulting with  Engineer Walkem in connection with  the new railway.*"'- -.r  ~~--���.-���..-��_*  : toumtmrj Ore Sblpacats  The ore shipments from Boundary  mines for the past week and year to  date follows:  Week  Granby mines. >9i54>  Mother Lode.......'.    ....

Traphageii Denver )  A new device or process  in  metallurgy is sure to arouse interest, particularly if it promises to have any great  influence upon commercial enterprises  already in existence.    In the absence  of reliable information regarding these  innovations  it is  inevitable  that descriptions and predictions more or less  colored find their way into  the  press.  The Fink furnace has not escaped  the  sensational reporter and the public has  not been very descriminating in accepting reports, most of which  were published without authority.    As far as I  am aware, Dr. Fink himself has been  very cautious in giving out information  or  in   making predictions.    Notwithstanding   his   caie,  many   ridiculous  statements have been published.'  As an example of what the public  has been  treated to, I  may cite the  following  quotation:    "Some   of   the  things that are  accomplished   by   the  smelter are:    Four or   five  men   will  operate a 100-ton Fink type of 'smelter,  while the ordinary plant requires fiom  20 to 30 men on u shift; , high-grade  copper matte is produced  in  20  minutes, bullion in one hour; it does away  with the freezing  of furnace  charges;  by a single operation, blister copper or  copper matte may be produced; sulphur  and flue dust are utilized   to  inciease  the  heat;   no  fumes  detrimental    to  vegetation escape from   the  stack; oil,  slack, wcod or sawdust can be utilized  for the heating of the  furnace;  it will  treat  silver,  gold  and   lead   ores   as  readily as copper; in time it   may pave  the zinc dalues; ore can be turned into  matte at a cost of 50 cents per ton; a  300-ton plant can   be  built for  something like  $45,000."    In  connection  with the last item in this list of virtues  it is interesting to note that the cost of  ihe   Washoe " smelter,   Montana,   was  about $9,500,000.  " The process, in brief, consists in a  roasting and smelting operation carried  on in revolving ^cylinders   not   unlike  Biuckner  roasters.     These cylinders  are mounted in pairs and so arranged  that they may alternately act as roasting vessels or as smelting and converting vessels.   By means of stacks at the  outer ends.of the  cylinders, provided  with  suitable dampers, the course .of  the heated gases may be varied.    Between the cylinders is   a  combustion  chamber  through   which  the  fuel   is  introduced,   and   through   which   the  heated gases also pass o'rf~their' return"  from   the  smelting   to - the   roasting  chamber.  Movable tuyeres of iron pipes, the  ends of which are protected by chrome  brick, may be introduced through, the |  ports, and at the proper time inserted I blast furnace plant.  beneath   the   matte   for convening it  into blister copper.  The heated gases from the roasting  chamoer escape directly through the  stack, arid for this reason the sulphur  and iron oxidized can scarcely be useful as fuels as they are in a McDougal  furnace, where the charge on the. upper  hearths is heated by the rising gases  on their way to the flues.  The ability to roast a very considerable quantity of concentrates at a time  is limited by the size of cylinder commercially possible, and this, in,turn,  limits the quantity of matte that may  be produced and converted in a single  cycle.  The slag is likely to be higher in  copper than that produced under present practice, because the process involves constant motion of the charge,  which would tend to carry particles of  matte into the slag and keep them suspended therein.  On the other hand, the  large rever-  beratory furnaces in  use today afford  every opportunity for prills of matte  to separate out, and as a result the  slags from those furnaces  rarely carry  more than .4% copper.    Add  to this  the fact that the calcines are produced  without the use of extraneous fuel and  are charged hot to the reverberatories;  that the escaping gases are further utilized for  steam raising  by  Stirling, or  other.t'ypp, boilers place! in the flues;  that even the ashes are jigged  before  going to . waste; that  the  matte goes  molten to the converters, where during  its conversion   it  is   treating siliciotis  gold, silver and copper ores contained  in the converter, and you have a metallurgical process  that  comes  close  to  ���perfection.  In  modern   copper   blast   furnace  treament use is  made of the sulphur  and iron contained, at least just as successfully as in the Fink furnace.    Notwithstanding these facts,  if tha Fink  furnace is demonstrated to be'.'.capable  of doing what is claimed for it by  the  conservative element; if structural  details are solved and manipulation placed  on a basis permitting the ordinary smel  ter man   to  operate it  without undue  difficulties, then it has an important  place.    This; place is in : the isolated  camp, where fuels are expensive and  where oil is cheap (powdered   fuel has  already been abandoned, I understand);  where   because  of high . freight  rates  and "excessive-treatmenr~charges"the  process -will   succeed,   if at   all;   but  under the conditions prevailing in the  great operating copper smelting centers  it can scarcely compete with  a -well-  conducted   reverberatory   furnace   or  ���ywnriffnritfnr��ritrmmmiiFnri��f��"tfmwmwi?fmwwK  jfe This is the Largest and Newest Hotel in the city, heated by Eg  ^ hot  water and well furnished throughout for the accommodation =3  ��f of the public.

Naturalization  A Vancouver paper says the greatest  avalanche of applications  for   naturalization  in   the   history  of  the  county  court   of   Vancouver   rolled   in   upon  Judge Grant Monday. They numbered  over  350.    Of  these  about   70 succeeded, being in   tbe form   prescribed  by   the act.    The  others   were given  until June 26th.to- substitute the affi  davits   of  "natural   born"   instead   of  "naturalized" Canadians or British sub  jects   required   with   the   application.  Practically all of these came from Vancouver's German and Italian   colonies.  Brill ait Rossland Student  E. H.

MINING  1  I  ��� O  The directors of the Le Roi Mining  company have made the necessary1 financial arrangements for carrying on a  scheme of extensive exploration and  development work.  The finding of a ledge of gold-btar-  ing ore assaying from $25-5�� to $25^  per ton from random samples from surface outcroppings is reported from  Pemberton Meadows,* near Lillooet  lake, So miles from Vancouver.  The Eva mine at Camborne was  bonded to American capitalists last  week. Eva has been a shipping mine  for ten years. A 60-ton concentrator  and 10-stamp mill are located on the  property. The ore is mostly free milling, about 20 per cent being base.  About $250,000 has been taken in  gold bricks.  The Western Canada Coal company,  owners of the Taber mines at Taber,  Alia., have made application to the  minister of labor on Saturday to appoint an investigation board to inquire  into the strike at their mines. There  are about 200 men affected. These  mines have been idle since April 1,  but the Coal Operators' association.

Track Laying at Keremeos  The extension of the V.V. & 11. west  of Keremeos, which has been looked  forward to for so long by towns in the  Similkameen, is about to commence.  Last week a track-laying machine together with full track-laying equipment  and a gang of men arrived at .Keremeos and it is now believed that it is  a rmtter of but a few days till actual  track-laying will begin, as the road,  with the exception of bridges, is ready  for the steel. The grading has been  completed to Princeton, but whether  the steel will really be laid further than  Medley this fall is a matter of conjecture.  Colonization of North  That the Grand Trunk Pacific will  start work immediately on a colonization scheme to attract settlers to the  lands in the valleys of the northern interior of British Columbia to be traversed by the line of the G.T.P. is the  announcement made by W. P. Hinton,  general passenger agent of the company. The company is now securing  all available particulars of actual agricultural operations in the Nechaco and  other valleys for use in a campaign,  which is expected to attract thousands  of settlers by the time . the line is in  operation. The railway company has  a building of its own at the A. Y. P.  fair, and will have a very attractive ex-  hinit and information bureau.  G. N.

WORKING DAY AND NIGHT AT RUPERT  With   Barely   One   Hour of   Darkness,   Contractors Employ Two Shifts on G. T. P.  Prince Rupert, June 14.���Since the  advent of the long summer days again  the working forces along the construction work of the Grand Trunk Pacific  have been greatly increased, much  better progress is being made and the  work on tbe first hundred miles of the  road is being hurried to completion.  With good daylight until 11 o'clock  at night and with barely one hour of  darkness, most of the contractors have  increased their forces and are now  working day and night gangs. The  weather up the Skeena has been ideal  for railway construction, and contractors from Copper river report but two  or three days' rain since last February.  High water in the Skeena has damaged the grade in several places, the  banks being washed out, and cribbing  that was being built and filled with  rock to protect the roadbed from the  swift currents had been carried away;  but unless an extraordinary high rise in  the water should occur no serious  damage will be done, and the construction work will not be retarded.

Two lad'es Walked Out  ,"1 can not help, but sympathize  with the men in the audience Bitting  behind high hats," said the Uev. 11".'  S. Templeton as he was beginning services in the Presbyterian church at  Vancouver last Sunday. "Until the  style changes, I will ask the ladies to  kindly remove their hats. Tlie hats  are now so large that they interfere  with the ision of the persons sitting  behind them," he continued, then gave  the number of a hymn, which was  sung. When he again stood, ready to  begin his sermon, he said: "There  are two in the audience hid by one  hat, but if they desire to move they  may."  Two young ladies, wearing monstrous "merry widows," accompanied  by their swains, got. up and left the  church.  "This is the fust time that this has  occurred, but when it comes to that it  shows that they are exceptionally stubborn," continued tlie minister, and  then began bis sermon on "Sin in the  Camp."

"Unless you become as  little children you shall in no wise  enter the kindom of heaven." That's  easy to see. Children are honest, they  are temperate, get the big sleep, love  one another, love nature, they believe  things, have faith and trust. Isn't that  enough to make them happy? Happiness is the kingdom of heaven. The  blase, old, selfish, conceited glutton or  miser can't get into heaven because he  has walled heaven 111. with selfishness.  The eye of a needle is a subway compared to his chance of being happy.  N.E. LINSLEY ON QUEEN  CHARLOTTE COPPER  Expert Who Made Original  Report on Granby  An examination of various copper-  gold properties in the Oueen Charlotte  islands has just been completed by N;  E. Lindsay, of Spokane, one of the  best-known mining engineers in the  west. He paid special attention to the  Swede group, which is owned by Jo-  hann Wulffsohn of Victoria. "The  surface showings in the Queen Charlotte islands are excellent. Generally  speaking, the mining outlook there is  favorable, but thus far there has been  very little development. A few years  ought to make a change. Mining conditions comprising lime and iron, timber, waterand transportation are ideal,"  said Mr Linsley while in Vancouver.  This may be regarded as a very high  tribute to the district, as Mr. Linsley is  very conservative.  He had the honor of making the  first report on the group that now constitutes the famous Granby mines at  Phoenix. Years later he also wrote a  report which resulted in the listing of  the shares of the company on the  Boston stock exchange.
