Has  Agreement  For a Bond.  Property Will Now Be Thoroughly Tested.  Boundary Mining Notes  Roderick and Brown present. A let  ter was load from A. M. Whiteside,  solicitor, regarding claim of Richard  Silverthorne for damages for falling on  School street sidewalk and breaking  his wrist, thereby losing 51 shifts at  the Granby mines. The council is  looking into the matter.  By-Law No. 52, fixing the grade of  First street from Knob Hill avenue to  Victoria avenue, was read the first  time. This where is the bridge will be  raised this spring.  A strong protest was ordered sent  to the premier aud to our member at  Victoria, against lowering Ihe school  grant, as in the new proposed School  Act. And the council also asked for  an increase of the grant for pupils residing outside the municipality.  The city clerk was instructed to  draft a resolution asking the legislature  to pass an act giving all incorporated  cities power to tax railway lands witliin  Lheir limits, and that copies be sent to  thedifferent municipalities, asking their  support; also to the premier and our  member.  The following resolution asking for  tho establishment of a custom house  in Phoenix, and ordered sent to the  Hon. Minister of Customs, Duncan  Ross, M.P., etc, was passed:  Whereas, the City of Phoenix is the  largest and most important town with  out a customs officer in the Province  of British Columbia, and probably in  the'Dominion of Canada; and,  Whereas, the largest metalliferous  mines in Canada, which in 1904 pro  duced gold, copper and silver valued  at more than $2,000,000, immediately  adjoin and penetrate under the City of  Phoenix; and,  Whereas, the mines immediately adjoining the city of Phoenix shipped  more than 580,000 tons of copper-  gold ore in 1904, employing a large  number of workmen, and said mines  paid freights of more than $1,000 per  day; and,  Whereas, great quantities of valuable  mining.machinery and other merehan  dise have been and are still being im  ported into Phoenix by the mining  comjpanies and the merchants of this  city; and, ,   .  Whereas, a branch of the Great  Northern railways-has'just been completed to Phoenix, giving more direct  access to American markets, on account of which the importations to  Phoenix will necessarily be larger in  the future, Phoenix now also being the  nearest receiving point for direct import freight shipments destined for  Greenwood; and,  Whereas, the lack of a customs officer has caused and still causes people  of I'hoenix the greatest possible hardship, expense and annoyance every  day in the year; be it therefore,  Resolved, that the Corporation of  the City of Phoenix earnestly requests  once more that the Dominion Government appoint a customs officer and  establish a customs office in Phoenix  without delay.  A resolution was also passed asking  the postoffice department to utilize the  Great Northern in bring mails to I'hoenix.  Ten Dollar Raise in Salaries.  A letter was read from John Rior-  dan, of the Trades Council, asking an  increase of salary for the night watchman, which was ordered filed.  For some time the council has been  considering the raising of city salaries,  and a motion prevailed Wednesday by  which the city clerk, chief of police  and night watchman each receive an  increase of $10 per month in pay, beginning March ist. This makes the  salaries $55, $110 and $95 per month,  respectively, and with the police magistrate's salary of $25, a total monthly  salary-listof$aS5.  ,A letter was read from the Victoria  Times regarding space in the July ist  50,000 anniversary edition. It received a six months' hoist.  Accounts were ordered paid as follows:  authorized^  Orders were given the health officer  to compel hotel owners to disconnect  with the Twin creek flume and to put  in cesspools.  SURPLUS EARNINGS  WERE $88,922.00  Statement Regarding the B. C.  Copper.  The Boston Commercial says:  British Columbia Copper company  issues a statement of its condition at  the close of business Nov. 30, 1904.  It gives the surplus earnings for two  years as $88,922, which would amount  to about 15 cents per share annually  ,011 its outstanding 315,150 shares of  stock. Within this two years the report says, 73,258 shares of treasury  stock have been disposed of, and  $320,780 have been expended upon  additions to plant and' in acquiring  new mining interest.;. It is not stated  whether or not the cash thus expended  was the amount received for the stock  sold. It is declared that the mines  have quite as much more ore in sight  and proved as at the time of the last  report.  Funeral of John Vernon Hill.  The funeral of John Vernon Hill,  who w;ts killed last week Thursday in  the Gianby mines, was held last Sunday, there being a large attendanc'.: of  members of the Miners' Union. Revs.  Perley and MacColl officiated, the interment taking place in the city cem-  etary.  The coroner's jury returned a verdict  of accidental death, with a recommendation that the company stretch ropes  some distance in front of the tunnel  mouth, to warn ore train brakemen of  the tunnel. ,.  I    LOCAL JOTTINGS   1  * ��  Greenwood Curlers are preparing to  give a ball in the near future.  Thos.. J. Hardy has returned to the  Boundary after a visit to Ontario.  ���Mrs.. J. B. .Boyle, spent several days  in Grand Forks this week visiting  friends.   l  Mr. and Mrs. AV. J. Porter expect  to start in a week or two lor an extended visit in Seattle.  Supt. Hodges, of the Granby Co.,  recently made an inspection ofthe Bay  .mine, in Skylark camp.  The curlers and skaters have not  been enjoying their respective sports  hereabouts this week.  Grand Forks has an attendance ol  65 children at the public school who  reside outside the city limits.  The sixth annual ball of Greenwood Miners' Union will be held  March 17th at Masonic hall, that  city.  P. W. Gordon, of ���Nelson, representing the Imperial Oil Co. of Winnipeg  111 the Kootenays, spent yesterday in  the city.  L. Y. and Mrs. Birnie spent last  Sunday in Grand Forks, where their  daughter Doris has been down wi'.h  bronchitis again.  There is no doubt that Harold Nek  son and his company will draw a big  house next Monday in "Paul Kau-  var."    It's a way Mr. Nelson has.  E. H Tretheway, who has been re^  lieving at Three Forks, Nelson, etc.,  has returned to I'hoenix, and is once  more, for a time, handling the lightning here for the C. P. R,  The city of Greenwood is examining  Providence creek, and having a dam  built, for the purpose of determining  the flow of water and deciding whether  the creek has sufficient supply for city  purposes.  A few days  ago   the   Granby   Co.  made an agreement for  the  bond  on  the  Winnipeg   mine,   in   Wellington  camp, and already has a force of men  at work   tmwatering   the property, so  that it can  be   thoroughly   examined  and i-ampled.    The price of the bond  is not made public, but is  understood  to be in the neighberhood of $15,000.  The property was sold to satisfy claims  for wages by  Judge  Lea my,   of   the  county court a couple of weeks ago to  XV. T. Hunter,   James Hunter, C. D.  Hunter, XV. S. Macy  and  A.  B.   XV.  Hodges, and  these   gentlemen   have  made the agreement with the Granby  Co. referred to.    It is the intention to  thoroughly exploit  the  Winnipeg on  systematic lines, and if it proves  satisfactory, the bond will be taken   up by  the company.  Last Wednesday John Rogers, who  has had charge of the work for the  Granby Co. at the Senator mine, Summit camp, broke camp there, and removed to the Winnipeg mine, wheie  he will keep three shifts busy pumping  out the water A couple of cars of  material were shipped to the mine from  Phoenix, and as 'he work proceeds  Mr. Rogers will increase his force.  The Winnipeg now stands a chance  of being proved by men who have su.-  ficient capital to give it a thorough  test. Heretofore it has always been  handicapped in this regard, and the  property was operated in a hand to  mouth manner on account of lack of  capital. Many mining men believe  that the property has a valuable body  of iron ore, with gold values, and that  this will shortly be proved to the satisfaction of all. The mine has a 350-  foot shaft with hundreds of feet of  drifting, besides a second shaft near  th6 Golden Crown line. It > is  equipped with a small air compressor,  pumps, hoist, bunkhouse, etc.,  From plans now in hand, it is not  believed thai there will be any shortage of power after next fall in the  Boundary at Cascade.  Active work on the contract for a  '300 foot tunnel on the Gold Bug has  been started by the contractor, Martin  McHale, of Phoenix.  Diamond drilling still continues on  the Monarch for the Granby Co , and  in a short time development, in the  way of stripping, will be started.  Four additional ore pockets are being constructed at the No. 3 ore bins  of the Granby Co., where the Great  Northern gets its tonnage of ore.  Manager Duncan Mcintosh is installing machinery at the E. P. U.  mine, Skylark camp, consisting of an  8mo hoist, a 25 h. p. boiler and a No.  6 Cameron pump, with suitable build-  nigs  A 22-ton shipment of ore from the  Rambler mine West Fork of Kettle  river, recently received by J. W. Nel  son, the owner, gave returns of $73.24  per ton, the values being nearly all in  silver.  Another two car shipment of ore  from the Skylark mine is being hauled  to the railway. One of the cars is expected to be of a- pretty high grade.  J^ast night a night shift of eight men  was added to the force.  J. W. Nelson, of Greenwood, has  bonded the Silver Cloud fraction, in  Skylark cam]), to R. R. Penny and G.  H. M. Baker. The claim is believed to  contain the Bay lead, the shaft of the  Bay being but 200 yards distant  Last Monday the sixth furnace at  the Granby smelter was blown in and  the entire battery is now in blast, with  ample power for operating purposes.  The shipments from the company's  Phoenix mines were also once more  increased somewhat over both railways,  as a result.  (LN.PASSENGER  ON SUNDAY  First Regular   Service  New Line.

Green, who lived two years in Phoenix, says to the Pioneer about its' recent illustrated number:  "Received the Midwinter Number  O. K., and am delighted with it. You  need to be proud of your second holiday number. It is even an improvement on the first one, which was exceptionally good. I am showing it to  all my friends as a proof of what Phoenix can do in the newspaper line."  A subscriber in New York city  writes: "The Midwinter Number just  received, You have turned out a very  fine piece of work, and 1 think the  work compares. favorably with any  other, no matter where it was done.  It certainly gives a very complete idea  of the Boundary, and its resources."  The announcement has been definitely made that Munroe & Munroe  have severed their connection with the  Montreal & Boston Consolidated by  selling out their interest to the Guggen-  heims. Manager Pemberton expects  to make a trip east shortly to see the  officers of the company in New  York.  Work was defiinitely discontinued  this week at the Senator mine, Summit camp, and the bond on the property thrown up by the Granby Co.  The mine has shipped more than  5,000 tons of iron ore, each ton containing a few pounds of copper aud a  dollar or two in .gold. It was useful  largely as a flux, and most of the ore  in sight was shipped. The owners are  Chris. Tobiasson and R. Hoffman," of  Grand Forks.  This week the new giant ore crusher  of the Granby Co. at the No. 3 tunnel  ore bins, was turned over for the first  time, and run light for a time. In a  few days it will be used regularly. It  has capacity of 1 50 ions per hour, or  3,600 tons each 24 hours, if run full  time. It is a duplicate of the machine in operation a' the company's  Knob Hill mine; thus, giving a total  crushing capacity of 7,200 tons per 24  hours, if operated full time. Both  crushers were manufactured by the  Jenckes Machine Co., of Sherbrooke,  Quebec, and are the largest in British  Columbia, or as far as known in Canada.  Tomorrow evening at 5.20���if the  train is on time���the first 'regular passenger train over the new Great Northern extension to Phoenix will arrive  here, and thereafter trains will run regularly daily, Sunday included.  Monday morning the trai.-t will leave  here at 9.50. running through to Marcus without change, making close connections for Nelson, Rossland and  Spokane, and arriving at the latter  place at 6.00 p. m.- The train is due  to reach Phoenix daily, as stated, at  5.20 p, m. A special effort is being  made by the railway company to secure business between the Boundary  and Nelson and Rossland.  As far as learned, there is nothing  new regaiding the excursion between  Phoenix and Spokane. It is expected  to take place on Thursday, the 16th  inst., and excursionists will have two  whole days in Spokane. Doubtless,  there will be a large number from  Grand Forks, Greenwood and Phoenix who will tike advantage of the  occasion to visit Spokane. The round  trip fare will be $5.00.  BONDED SEATTLE  MINE FOR $125,000  M. &B.Take Well Known  Claim.  It is reported that the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated have taken the  Seattle claim, ten miles up the North  Fork or Kettle river, on a lease and  bond, amounting to $125,000. The  vendors are Robert Clark, the locator,  and Hay &McCallum, of Grand Forks.  The sum of $50,000 is to be paid  at the expiration of one year.  The Seattle has been through a sea  of litigation, and its true worth has  never been shown up on this account..  Mr. Clarke worked for years on il, and  one time had it bonded to the Trail  smelter people.  $88,850,000 In Dividends.  Calumet & Hecla (Michigan) has  declared a dividend of $10 per share  and $5 extra, calling for a disbursement  of $1,500,000. This will make a  total of $88,850,000 reeeived in dividends by the stockholders of this company. Total amount paid in by  original stockholders was only $1,200,-  000. The company's six preceding  dividends were $40 each. It is estimated that the company is carrying a  cash surplus at present amounting to  $65 per share. Its earnings on the  present 15^-cent copper market must  be at the rate of $65 per share annually.  1901      1J02    1903      1904  231,762   309,85s   393,7'S   M9,7<>3  1,731     2o,Soo    71,312       5.340     99.��34   I4',3*6   ijS,079   I74.29S  S02  550  25.950  14,405  3.070  10.712  15.731  3.2S��  S55  1,759  1,305  5,^0  4,5*6     1.076  2,250  150  14,Sn  5*��  65o      8,530  7S5  6*5  3.339  19.365  22,937  ���5,537  363  =.435  6,400  37,96o'  16,400  3,450  222  364  33  I BOUNDARY ORE TONNAGE.  i)       The following table gives the oie shipments of Douudarv mines lor 1900, for 1901. lor A  . . 1902, lor 1903, for 1004, niul 1905, ns reported to the Phoenix Pioneer��� -  i > Mine.

In the Boundary smelters they receive on an average 25 cents per hour for the twelve  hours, whether they work all the time  or not. This is ten per cent, more  than is paid in other B. C. smelters.  It goes without saying that if the law  had been passed they would expect  the $3 for eight hours work, and right  here would come the" trouble if there  should be trouble.  March installment of "Frenzied Finance." Regarding copper mines Mr.  Lawson it requires $5,000,000 and  five years of time to make a good copper deposit, pay profits. Those best  acquainted with the subject thoroughly  agree with Mr.-Lawson. It follows of  course, that newspaper men are not  holders of large blocks of copper  shares.

So far the smelters of British Columbia have not been able to show any  profits worthy the name for the millions that have been invested. They  have been steadily operated for from  four to eight or nine years, and yet  this is the undisputed case���no dividends in sight. Just now the price of  the me'als is in a most favorable condition, and there seems a chance for  some small profits some time this year  if matters run along smoothly.  ���   o  ,���     ���  - - r  I  MAR*  1905'  Sui.' tfu.Titi/Watf.

On  ��� the second reading the bill was .killed  by a" vote of 26 to 12, and tht vote itself brought out some curious things.  , .Brown,   the .Liberal   member  from  ; Greenwood, voted against the bill,  .while Fraser, the Conservative mem-  ber from Grand Forks, voted for it.  John Houston voted for it, while his  ��� paper, the Nelson Tribune, worked  tooth and nail in its favor. < Conserva-  . tives and Liberals ranged up on either  side, showing that it was, not defeated  f Las a party measure, but because tlie  majority behaved it best for the province, that it should not pass at this  time. ,  The bill itself offers much  food for  thought.    It is granted generally that  ' smeltermen are employed about twelve  hours per shift, but this work differs in  different smelters.' In one���like the  , Granby, for instance-^-these. men do  < not work more than an average of eight  , hours out of the twelve, and many of  them less.   In others the work is' said  to be almost continuous, and the hardest kinder labor.   In still another, the  Trail smelter, the men sent a wire to  the coast, saying that they were satisfied with the hours of labor.   And in  all these there is a decided difference  of opinion.  Down at the coast, where so much information that has absolutely no foundation in fact emanates, they have had  strikes going on in'the smelters of the  Boundary since last week, as a result  of the defeat of the Hawthornthwaite  bill. But like the majority of such  tales, there was not a scintilla of truth  in them. They did not realize down  there that, in all reason, before anything of that kind occurred there would  be a demand made, an ultimatum  given and the matter considered in ail  its, bearings ,by both parties to the  matter.' As far as can be learned  none of these steps have been taken  by the unions.  It is also significant that J.H., Hawthornthwaite, the author of the bill,  has no use for trades unions' and has  said as much. , Such is his extreme  Socialism. Then again Socialists are  supposed to believe in making every  effort to adjust conditions through  the ballot box first, and many of them  deprecate a strike. All these things  should be remembered.  It is really amusing to watch the antics of the opposition press of this province. Every one of the Grit editors  know that'up to the date of the McBride administration the piovince had  been running into debt, and every one  was also aware that this had to 'stop  sometime. Premier McBride has stopped il even chough the means seemed  drastic, and taxes were increased. But  at every turn the Liberal editors cry  out���for want of something better to  say. It is an absolute certainty that a  Liberaladministration would have found  it needful to do almost the same as  has Mr. McBride, but of course, that  would be a different story.

In other words, a'little arbitration,  entered into the light spirit on both  sides, will go a long ways towards settling differences. -But neither' side  should think that they have all of the  right on their side, as this rarely proves  to be the case.  Over five years ago an eight hour  law for miners laboring underground  was passed, and many thought it would  ruin the mining industry. In the Boundary there was no trouble whatever,  but in Rossland and the Slocan there  was a succession of troubles, from the  effects of which those sections are only  just emerging. It is safe to say that  there is no danger whatever of that  law being repealed. Mining is dangerous business at best, and with all the  safeguards thrown around the calling  finalities do occasionally occur.  Here is an interesting statement for  the politicians to ponder over:  All the provincial governments east  of the Ottawa river are Liberal, and all  those west of the Ottawa are Conservative, the latter section being the most  populous. "  The Japs still have Russians on the  go���towards St. Petersburg. Thgy  are evidently pounding it into the Slavs  that they meant it when they said they  wanted an indemnity of a matter ,of  $350,000,000 to stop the war.  Vancouver claims a population of  40,000.  A tax rate of 20 mills has been  made in the city of Slocan.  Victoria has the first wireless telegraph station in the province.

The local elephone company atNa-  naimo, has been absorbed by the B.  C. Telephone Company, which will  build a metallic ��� system and make  the plant first-class in every respect.  A bill has been introduced into the  legislature compelling drummers, sell-  ling goods to be imported into the province, to pay a license. Liquor and  cigar men are to pay $100 and others  $50, every six months.  But this is not the case  with the  smeltermen.   The work is often arduous, and hard in the extreme, and in  some smelters the fumes are certainly  . bad for the men who have to breathe  , them, especially in lead smelters.   But  ��� comparatively speakingr there are few  fatalities in smelters, probably as few as  ' in any manufacturing business, and the  ' same argument regarding the hazardous nature of the occupation, as in the  vassal miners) wiU not hold good.  Last year the published dividends of  the various mining concerns in North  America aggregated upwarda of $90,-  000,000. Which is another way iof  saying that brains and capital can ah'd  do make a success in the'field-of  mining.  Some of those newspaper men at the  coast are artists in their line. If th, ey  had a little more rope they would have  every smelter in the country closed {by  strike���en paper. They hardly stop to  verify the baseless rumors, either.  From tbe report of" the speeches  made last week at the annual meeting  of the associated Boards of Trade at  Ne'son, considerable hot air was in  evidence there.

January's pay roll with the Crow's  Nest Pass Coal Co. was $125,949.  The Slocan Star is sending out zinc  ore at the rate of between 60 to 70 tons  per day.  Sandon mines shipped 440 tons of  zinc and 117 tons of silver-lead ore  last week.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 7,515 tons, or a total for the year  of 53,181 tons. <  LeRoi's profits for January are estimated at $27,000 from an ore output of 10,058 tons.  There is talk of amalgamating the  the White Bear and California mines  at Rossland. The latter is controlled  by Granby interests.  The American Mining Co., of Indiana, has acquired the hydraulic plant  and leases of VV. Cowan, on French  creek above Revelstoke.  It is said that the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co. is preparing to lock horns  with the C. P. R. for an^ enormous  claim for timber cut from the lands of  the former.  John L. Retallack, on behalf of the  mineowners, has gone to Ottawa to  urge the government to appoint an  expert to report on the zinc resources  of the Slocan.

A man may  escape a doctor, keep clear of the  courts but once in a lifetime at leasl  every man has to go to the newspaper  to have ar certain piece put in���a death  notice, a marriage notice, etc., to have  a certain piece kept out or to have his  name printed in, or omitted from some  item. It is therefore to your interest  to treat the editor fairly. He desires  to be fair: he would rather do the right  than the wrong thing, but if you; give  him a kick the dent of it may be found  in the top of your own hat some day  and you will never know how it got  there.

Will Output 300,000  Tons This Year.  The settlement of the coal miners,  strike at Coleman, Alberta, was pleasant news to many in the Boundary,  where numerous shares of this concirn  are owned. The men and the management got tog"ther and after several  conferences finally agreed upon a basis  of settlement, to last two years, the  hasp; being practically that in force in  other coal mines in the Crow's Nest  l'ass.  This coal company, while one oi the  youngest in the district, has one of  the best developed mines and the largest and best equipped plant in  Alberta a, id is now in a position to  produce the largest output of coal in  the Pass. Its officials recentl) elected at the annual meeting are: A. C.  Flumerfelt, president; H. N. Galer,  vice-president; W.G. Graves, secretary;  E. E. Reynolds, superintendent and  G. L. Fraser, master mechanic, and  deserve great praise,-not only for the  way in which they have developed and  equipped the property, but also for the  way they have pushed their town  ahead and met and overcome many  difficult problems.  Last year, the first in the history of  this pioperty, it produced an output of  51,000 tons of coal, and this besides  erecting their large plant and building  104 coke ovens, so it is safe to say  that this year it will reach over the  300,000 ton mark with its output.

Pneumonia is too dangerous a disease for anyone to attempt to doctor  himself, although he mayhave the!proper remedies at'hahd. A physicianshould  always be called. Itshould bebome in  mind, however, that pneumonia  always results from a cold or from an  attack of the grip, and by the proper  treatment of these diseases a threatened  attack of pneumonia may be, warded  off. There is no question whatever  about this as during the thirty years or  more that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been used, we have yet to Jearn  ofa single case of a cold br attack of  the grip having resulted in pneumonia  when this remedy was used. It is also  used by physicians in the treatment of  pneumonia with the best results. Dr.  W. J. Smith, of Sanders, Alta., who  is also a druggist, says: "I have been  selling Chamberlain's Cough Remedy  and prescribing it in my practice for  the past six years.
