Another five million dollar company  to exploit Phoenix mines, is the good  news which the Pioneer has to lay before its readers this week���and the  company will, as soon as all details are  completed, begin the work of developing some of the most promising claims  in Phoenix camp.  Last Saturday F. P. Buck, a well  known business man, of Sherbrooke,  Quebec, was a visitor in Phoenix, and  also during the week, and the result of  his visit here at this time is the organization of the Phoenix Amalgamated  Copper Mines, Ltd., with a capital of  $5,000,000, divided into 500,000  shares of $io each. The claims included in this amalgamation are the  War Eagle, Red Rock, Bald Eagle,  Lulu, .Missing Link No. 2, Pinhook,  Dandy and World's Fair, eight claims  with an area of about 250 acres.  This group is immediately contiguous to the Granby group on the south,  and the claims adjoin each other.  Development done on them shows that  they have an immense mineral showing of the ore common to this camp���  not a high grade ore, but one that can  be made to yield a satisfactory profit  when operated on a sufficiently extensive scale. And this is the scale that  it is the intention to work them on.  Mr. Buck is no stranger to Phoenix,  having been here several times in the  past. He is president of the War  Eagle Copper-Gold Mining Co., Ltd.,  which has a five drill air compressor  plant on the War Eagle, with a shaft  down too feet and several hundred  feet of drifting. He is also president  of the Red Rock and Bald Eagle Copper-Gold Mining Co. and of the Lulu  company. C. H. Fletcher, a wealthy  resident of Sherbrooke, Quebec, is  vice-president of the three companies.  Mr. Fletcher has always had a most  favorable opinion of the Phoenix properties, agreeing with President Buck in  holding the claims until the right time  arrived for their extensive development.  C. A. French, \V, W. Bailey, F. Mc-  Rae and R. H. Pope, all prominent  men in the Eastern Townships of  Quebec, are largely interested in the  War Eagle.  Thus far about $50,000 has been  spent on the War Eagle alone. The  Red Rock has a particularly favorable  showing, and the Missing Link No. 2,  Pinhook. Dandy, World's Fair, bought  from G. R. Naden, of Greenwood, J.  S. C. Fraser, of Rossland, and others,  are claims that have been acquired this  week by Mr. Buck for the new company, it being understood that they  cost in the neighborhood of $40,000.  In the early days of the Boundary  the War Eagle was actively worked,  but for the hist live years it has been  idle. In 1900 its owners were not  encouraged by the then low price ot  copper. Now, however, that the red  metal is selling at excellent figures, and  with the Granby Co. paying regular  dividends, there is every encouragement to holders of good mining property in the Boundary to place it in the  producing stage.  Before leaving for the east this week,  Mr. Buck said to the representative of  the Pioneer.:  "I am not at 'liberty yet to state who  will be on the b >ard of directors of the  new amalgamated company, but Boston, New York and Sherbrooke capital  will be represented, and it will be a  strong company. We shall have  $2,000,000 in shares in the treasury,  and there will be no difficulty now in  financing the project. Five years ago  the Granby was not heard of in New  York. Now it is as well known among  financial men almost as the C.P. R.  Capital is willing to listen, and is even  anxious to look into the Boundary  mining projects in a financial way.  We propose to build up an important  mining proposition here, and will  make a start just as soon as all the  preliminaries are completed. I am  now going east, but expect to return  in May with Mr. Fletcher and possibly  others, and by that time we will have  our plans formulated for undertaking  extensive devlopmenr.  "As to facilities for shipment, that  has already been looked after, and we  shall have no trouble in securing the  very best of accommodation in this  regard. The C.P. R. could readily run  a. short spur from Hartford Junction  to the War Eagle, while the Great  Northern now has its track���-being the  tail ot the present line to Granby No.  3 tunnel���within a mile of our property. Our people have held their  property for several years, and now,  when the lime is propitious, they propose to operate il extensively."  Regarding the treatment of the ore  from the new company's mines, when  ready to   ship,   no   difficulty is antici-  Instruments to be Property of  Corporation.  At Wednesday's bi-weekly meeting  of the city council, there were present  Acting Mayor Marshall and Aldermen  Kane, McKenzie Oxley and Carson.  It was decided to build a ditch for Twin  creek from Second street to Church  street, the flume to tie three feet wide  by four feet deep, the ditch to run on  city property and no further without  the consent of owners of other property. The city clerk was instructed to  advertise for bids for the work, to be  in by the time of the next meeting of  the city council which will be March  28th.  The application of the Phoenix Fire  Brigade band for financial assistance  in securing instruments, was favorably  acted on, the aldermen voting $250  for this purpose, the instruments to  become the property of the city and  to be in charge of the chief of police.  A motion also prevailed that the city  purchase a team and wagon for city  use, and that the chief of the fire department and chief of police report  their success in securing a suitable  team.  Upon the  favorable   report  of the  finance committee, the council ordered  the following accounts paid:  Phoenix Electric Lighting Co $ 93 00  By  Boundary   Mines, Smelters and Railways.

According to carefully prepared estimates, more than  2,000  men   are   directly   employed   in the mines of the  Boundary or in the three district smelters and two railways  directly  dependent on the mines and smelters for the  greater part  of  the tonnage.    In the  mines themselves over a thousand men  are  given   employment,   the   smelters  have about 6jo  men and the railways  in 1 be Boundary some   400   men   on  their payroll.      In  the preparation  of  the following table it   was   found that  the   number  of men employed at the  mines varied from  time   to   time,   according   to   the needs of the smelters  and according to ihe amount of development work   being   carried on in advance of immediate ore   requirements  to keep up the average output of about  4,000 tons daily.    The forces employed   by   the  smelters and railways do  not vary so much.    In nearly all cases  the figures are believed to be approxi  mately correct in the tables appended:  Employed in Mines.

It is reported that the ledge on the  110-foot level of the Presion is steadily widening, high vanies being encountered in the ore.  About 100 feet of drifts have been  opened up in the Rambler, up the  West Fork, and several crosscuts made.  Values run as high as $185 per ton.  In about another week the new  mammoth ore crusher at the Granby  mines, to take the place of the one  burned down in December, is expected to be ready for operations.  This week the diamond drill that  has been opeiated at the Mother Lode  mine was taken to the Emma, where  the B. C. Copper Co. is putting in  some holes at the'lower levels.  Today is payday at the Granby and  Dominion Copper mines, when not far  from $60,000 will be distributed.  With the amounts the two companies  will pay also at the smelters, the total  will be about $r00,000 for February.  This week the Dominion Copper  Co.'s smelter made a new record for  a week, reducing 5,514 tons of ore.  The B. C Copper also did well, but  the Granby smelter, with one furnace  under tepair, did not handle as much  as has been the custom of late.  The special bill has passed the  legislature, amending the Granby Co.'s  act, by which the par value of the  shares will be raised from $10 to $100  each, and authorizing the directors to  declare dividends without authority of  the shareholders.  FEBRUARY A  BIG MONTH  District Mines Exceeded January Output.  Total Shipments Over 105,000  Tons.  Figuring by the month, for the first  two months of 1906, the producing  mines of the Boundary are keeping up  the'record^of shipping ore at the rate  of about a million and a quarter per  annum, the total for January and  February being close to 210,000 tons.  Notwithstanding the fact that February  is three days shorter than January, ordinarily giving a tonnage ic,ooo less  than for the previous month, from detailed figures compiled, the total for the  second month of 1906 is slightly larger  than for the first month. Both the  Granby and B. C. Copper companies  shipped a little less than in January,  but the Dominion Copper sent out a  little more ore than in the previous  month. In detail the output of each  shipping mine in the Boundary for  January and February are given as  follows:  Mines Tom  Sally  15  Rambler  5  Washington-Idaho  5  North Fork mines, about  25  West Fork mines, about ��� 25  Various    small     properties,  about  50  Boston, Mass., March 7.���New  Yorkers have been heavy buyers during  the past few days of Granby stock in  both markets, advancing the price to  $ 11.50, its high record price.  Accompanying the advance is a report that Granby will go upon a 12  per cent dividend basis, dividends  payable quarterly. The Granby paid  a 3 per cent dividend in December,  but there was no designation as to  whether it was quarterly or semiannually.  It was generally accepted as a 6 per  cent rate.  It is generally understood that the  company's copper now costs 9 cents  per pound, which would indicate net  earnings of about $175,000 monthly  on an 18 cent market. On this basis  it is showing net earnings of about 1 5  per cent on its 1,350,000 shares. Par  value of shares is $io.  New York, March 3.���Copper stocks  in the Spokane country have been  booming.

Grading on the V.,V. & E. has been  prosected continuously west of Midway and has now reacbed a stage that  permits a reasonable estimate to be  made of the time of road's arrival at  Hedley.  A great deal of work had to be done  at Midway, principally in preparing the  large yards, but the eighty-ton steam-  shovel which was at work there made  short work of that, and also of the  various heavy cuts west of the  town. At Myers' creek canyon a tunnel over eight hundred feet long has  to be constructed. About half of this  has been completed.  Charles 1). Hunter went over to  Nelson on Wednesday.  II. II.

The meetings are held once a year,  and this is the first one that has been  arranged to be held in Phoenix. It is  expected that there will be a large  delegation this time and local members  wish to show the visiting delegates all  the attention possible. It is more  than likely that the convention will be  welcomed by the mayor or acting  mayor, and there is talk of the business men tendering them a social on  the evening of the 22nd.

This week steps were taken  for the  .., organization of another large incorporation for the development of some of  the most important properties in the  Boundary���a company that will operate right here in Phoenix, and that  will, when  finally  at ,vvork, give em-  ,��� . .ployment to a .considerable number of  , men in the.development of its mining  claims.    We refer to the amalgamation  of the War Eagle,   Red  Rock,   Bald  Eagle,   Lulu,   etc., properties that im-  .', mediately adjoin the Granby mines on  the south. The new company, will  have a capital of $5,000,000, of which  $2,000,000 will be in the treasury.  It is plain that this is but one of the  sequences to be expecied from . the  definite and positive knowledge of the  success by the Granby Co. in making  that great concern a profit paying one.  It took years of time and almost unlimited capital to succeed in this endeavor, and one result of that success  is the attraction of capital to develop  other good properties in the Boundary.  Five years ago the War Eagle was  operated here, but with the low price  of copper then prevailing and the consequent hesitancy of capital to take  hold at that time, it was thought best  to wait awhile. Now, however, the  conditions are all that could be desir-  ���ed.    Low grade ores have been made  .    profitable and  the price of copper being 18 cents, with a likelihood of staying in that vicinity for some time,there  is every incentive for taking up devel  opment again.

Mr.  Stanton was  in   his seventy-sixth year.     He was in  his office the previous week, but grippe  and   heart   failure. brought   the  end  quickly.    "Honest John," as he  was  called   widely,   was   a   director of the  Granby company, and was   president  of  the   Baltic,   Wolverine,    Mohawk,  Michigan and Winona properties  and  treasurer of the Atlantic copper mines  at Lake Superior. He had been actively engaged in copper mining for more  than fifty years,   and   his   opinion carried   perhaps more   weight   than   any  other copper man on the continent.  "Two years ago last September Mr.  Stanton paid his first visit to the  Boundary, coming to Grand Forks  with a number of other men who are  now directors of the Granby. As far  as we are aware, this was his first  visit to the province, and he expressed  the strongest desire to see more of the  countrj, the mining possibilities of  which made a deep impression on him.  In an interview at that time given to  W. A. Harkin, editor of the Gazette,  Mr. Staton said : "The Granby ore  body is the largest sulphide ore deposit I have ever examined, and my  mining experience. has extended to  every variety of copper ore. I don't  know of its equal on the continent."  $40,000 BOND  ON WEST FORK  On Well Known Washington  and Idaho.  Collins    and    Hunter     Now  Working the Claims.

For sale by all druggists.  An important deal was recently put  through by which two well known  Boundary men, residents of Greenwood, have taken a working bond  on two properties up die West  Fork of Kettle river, for $40,000.  The properties are the Washington and  Idaho, and the bond was taken by  George H. Collins, formerly superintendent of the lirouklvn group in  Phoenix camp, and W. T Hunter,  manager of ih: lltmier Kcndrick Co.,  in Greenwood, for themselves and  associates.  The Washington .tint Idaho are  located on Wallace mountain, iu-arthe  town of Ueavertlell, winch is ali.uit 50  miles from Midway, die nearest railway point at present. The survey ot  the' proposed Midway \- Vernon rait  way, however, goes through ihe town  of Beaverdell, and whenever that line  is completed the camp will have good  transportation facilities. Mike Callahan, formerly foreman ai the Brooklyn,  has been sent to the property with a  force of miners to start systematic de  velopment work.  "The Washington and Idaho claims  are owned by the Boundary <& Beaverdell Mining Co., in which the hue R.  E. L. Brown, better known throughout  the Nor:hwest as "Barbarian" Bro wi,  was the moving spirit. The company  is now in,,.liquidation, the Bank ol  Montreal', being, largely interested.  The property lias a hyist and boiler,  with a shaft down 100 feet, sunk between two parallel ledges, some 60 or  70 feet apart. Values so far are said  to run from $20 lo $60 per ton, mostly  in silver, but the property is clcse to  the SaJIy, which is steadily working 15  to 20 men, and taking out $200 and  S300 ore The Rambler is also in  close proximity to the Washington and  Idaho, which latter have a!wa\s been  regarded as among the best claims in  the camp, development having been  retarded owing to 'ack of sufficient  capital. The le<ids are from eight to  ten feet wide, and of large size, with  the strong probability, when the shaft  is unwatered and drifting =tatted, of  striking some of tht high grade veins  of that locality.  the Pioneer has paid more  than   $100  in postage.  '        - ��*i  Approximately, there are 2,000 r-er-  >ons empl. yed in the mining industry  in the Boundary or in the three district smelters or by the railways hauling the ore to those smelters. Which  means that the steady payroll of the  Boundary from the mines, smelters and  railways is about $200,000 per month.  No wonder that the Boundary is fairly  prosperous and that things look bright.  it*  There are not a few in the Boundary who rememoer John Dorsey, who  some five or six years ago promoted  t.vo mining companies in Summit  camp, the Blue Bell and Mountain  View, the latter claim adjoining the B.  C. mine Dorsey's friends and  enemies alike will recollect how he  took them down the lino, and suddenly left between two suns, as it were,  for other and gre^'-T pastures, where  the crop of suckers was still coming  up. Unci Dorsey was indeed down  on his hi-'-;, and tramped the streets of  Seattle wiiimut a 'ollar he could call  his own. I! it he went up into the  Bulkl y valley country, in northern  British Coin nbia, and through all  kinds of discouragements made and  disposed of some locations of copper  and coal that are said to be valuable.  Occasionally he is found in Seattle,  Vancouver, Victoria or Spokane, giving the papers a goodly story about  the riches of his new eldorado. Dorsey was smart, if he did lack education,  and if lu did take in all the friends of  his youth in the town of his birth back  in Wisconsin. He is likely to make a  big winning yet, with the growth of  newer portions of the province.

S. customs authorities have  held up 40 copies of the Holiday  Number of ihe Pioneer for $3 or $4  duty, the copies having been ordered  and paid for by a man in Spokane,  whence they were shipped by express.  The same copies could have been sent  through the mails and no duty collected or charged, but simply because  they happjned to be sent by express  they are subject to duty. This is  surely a fine distinction that we are  certain the authorities at Washington  even will find it difficult to explain,  namely, that periodicals can be received into the United States by mail and  not subject to duty, but if they go by  express   they   must   pay  the customs  tariff.  ��������  We labored under the idea that we  bad found the acme of official stupidity  when the Canadian postal department  raised the ratt on holiday numbers to  just sixteen times the ordinary newspaper rate, but Uncle Sam seems  determined���or at least, some of his  officious officials so decide���to go the  Ottawa subordinates of tbe'Honoiable  A.

Keith   Now  Located  in   California.  CAUGHT BY THE GRIP-  RELEASED  BY PE-RU-NA,  ������������ o ����� ��� ��� ��� ��������*���* m m ���-��� �����������  Produced  $7,000,000 in Copper in 1905.  W. S. Keith, formerly connected  with the Boundary Falls smelter, and  well known in Greenwood and the  Boundary, bul who is now in the same  line in Shasta county, California, gives  the Pioneer some intercstini< details ol  the great low jjr.idc ,,rt. r,odies of thai  section. From what he says, Mr.  Keith is evidently of the opinion that  Shasta county is one of the oreatesl  copper producing regions of America.  Appended is his letter:  Kennett, Cal., Mar.  i, 1906  Fijitor Pioneer,���  One of the great copper producing  district of the west is Shasta county,  California, the value of the red metal  produced for 1904 being $7,000,000.  Twelve   years   ago   the   Mountain  Copper Co., owning the famous   Iron  Mountain   mine,   built large reduction  works at Keswick, which wete operated  uninterruptedly  until the spring of  1905, when they were   closed   by   an  injunction procured by the people vs.  Mountain   Copper Co., on account of  the innocuous   fumes   from   the roast  heaps damaging vegetation.  Last week  the company,   before   the court of appeals, succeeded in having the   injunction   removed.      While   the case was  being   fought   in   the courts the plant  was partially dismantled, only the mechanical   roasters being   in  operation,  and a new plant was erected   at   i*. ar-  tinas  on San   Francisco   bay,   which  consisted of three large   reverberator)'  furnaces,   and   was placed   in   operation in  December,  1905.    It   is   now  authoritively   stated that the old Kes  wick plant will be rebuilt and operated  within a year from date.  At Kennett, the Mammoth Copper  Mining Co. have erected and are operating a 1000 ton smelter, the most  modern equipped plant in the west.  The ore from the Mammoth mine is  taken to the smelter ore bins by an  aerial tramway three miles in length.  The ore is a heavy sulphide analyzing  10% silica, 33% iron and 43% sulphur,  with about 5% zinc, and carrying  precious metal values of 5% copper,  $3 gold and $1 silver. The silicious  ores necessary for fluxing purposes are  obtained from the Tonapah and Gold-  fields districts of Nevada.  Fifteen   miles   from    Kennett   ihe  "The World  of Medicine  Recognizes Grip  as Epidemic  Catarrh ".  Medical Talk,  a>>a��aaaasaaaasaesa<ss��sssssaasa ��sas<assissassssssis*<  Bully Hill Mining Co. have a 500 ton  plant, which has been in operation four  years. The ore is very similar to the  Mammoth except that it runs much  higher in zinc, and carries greater silver values.  At Ingot the Great Western Mining  Co. has a 150 ton plant which has  been in operation a year. The ore for  this plant, which is obtained from the  Afterthought mine, resembles ihe  Bully Hill ore but carries a still higher  percentage of zinc.  Probably the greatest known low-  grade ore body in the west has been  encountered and partially opened up  in the Balaklala mine, owned by Utah  and Boston capitalists. This property  has been developed by tunnels, and  the ore body has been crosscut for Soc  feet with no walls in sight, the ore  carrying values of 3% copper, $3 gold  and from $1 to $3 in silver, with a  small percentage of zinc. Ground is  now being cleared for the erection of  large reduction works, consisting of  both blast and reverberator)'  furnaces.  Within five years Shasta county will  rank   next  to   Butte   as a copper producer, and as yet is  almost   unknown  to the prospector of low-grade ores.  Very truly,  \\. S.  Kkith.  A Southern Judge Cured.  Judge HoratlO'J. Gobs, Hartwell, Ga.,  writes:  "Some five or six years ago I had a  very severe spell of grip which left me  with systemic catarrh.  "A friend advised me to try your Pe-  runa, which I did, and waaImmediately  benefited and cured. The third bottle  completed the cure."���H. J. Goss.  Cured In a Few Weeks.  Miss Jean Cowglli, Grlswold Opera  House, Troy, N. Y., is the leading lady  with the Aubrey Stock Co. She writes  the following:  "During the past winter of 1901, I  suffered for several weeks from a severe  attack of grip, which left a serious  catarrhal condition of the throat and  head.  "Some one suggested Pernna.   As a  last   resort, after wasting much  time  and money on physicians, I tried the  remedy faithfully, and in a few weeks j  was as well as ever."���Jean Cowgill.        I  Crip Resulted In Catarrh.  Miss Alice Bielko, Treasurer Young  Women's Society of tha Lutheran  Church, Menasha, Wis., writes:  "1 gratefully acknowledge the good  that Peruna did me after I had been  sick with la grippe which left me in a  very weak and emaciated condition,  with catarrhal trouble of the head and  ears.  "My mother suggested that I take it  to build up my strength and rid myself  of the troublesome catarrh, and it  acted with wonderful speed.  "1 was able to resume my work inside of two months and I am in splendid  health now."���Alice Bielke,  One reason why Peruna has found  permanent use in so many homes is  that it contains no narcotic of any  kind. Peruna is perfectly harmless.  It can bo used any length of time  without acquiring a drug habit.  Peruna does not produce temporary  results,���it cures.  LaGrippe Is Epidemic Catarrh.  IT spares no class or nationality. Tho  cultured and the ignoraut,the aristocrat and the pauper, the masses and the  classes are alike subject to la grippe.  None are exempt���all are liable.  Grip is well named. The original  French term, la grippe, has been shortened by the busy American to read  ' grip."  Without intending to do bo, a new  word has been coined that exactly  describes tho case. As If some hideous  giant with awful grip had clutched us  in its fatal clasp.  Men, women, children, whole towns  and cities are caught in the baneful grip  of a terrible monster".  "  Have you the grlpf Or, rather, has  the grip got you? If so, read tho following letters.  These testimonials speak for themselves as to the efficacy of Peruna in  cases of la grippe or its after-effects:  Saved by Pe-ru-na.  Bon. James K. Guill is one of tho oldest and most esteemed mon of Omaha,  Neb. He has done much to make it  what It la, serving on public boards n  number of times. He endorses Peruna  In the following-words:  "I am 68 years old, am halo and h oar t y  and Peruna has helped me attain it,  Two years ago I had la grippe���my life  was despaired of. Peruna saved me."���  J. R. Guill.  " A Relative of Abraham Lincoln.  Mr. Silas S. Lincoln, who resides at  913 I street, N. W., Washington, I). 0���  has the honor of being third cousin to  Abraham Lincoln.   He wri tea:  "I had la grippe five times before using your medicine. Four years ago I  began the use of Peruna. since which  time I have not been troubled with that  disease.  "1 can now do as much work at my  desk as I ever could in my life, 1 have  gained more than ten pounds in  weigh t."-S. S. Lincoln.  Pe-ru-na Not Only Cured La Grippe but  Benefited the Whole System.  Miss Alice M Dressier, 1813 N. Bryant  Ave., Minneapolis, Minn., writes:  "Last spring I suffered from la grippe  and was partially enred, but the bad  after-effects remained through the  summer and somehow I did not get  strong as I was before.  "One of my college friends who was  visiting me asked me try Peruna and I  did so and found it all and more than I  had expected.  "It not only cured m* of tho catarrh  but restored mo to parfoet health, and  built up the entire syetem."���Alice U.  Dressier,  Address Dr. 8. B.
