Benefits to That Place From  The   Boundary./  \  The editor of the Pioneer recently  spent a week or ten days in Spokane,  returning with his family this week.  Visiting Spokane is quite a common  thing with residents of the Boundary,  now that railway communication is  good between the two sections, but  possibly every visitor does not take  note of some things se.en and heard of  on his particular trip.  Nearly eighteen years ago the writer  saw Spokane for the first time. Then  the place had���or claimed���18,000  people, Today its residents claim a  population close to 100,000. And  this is but a sample of the changes in  ihose 18 years. In 1889 Spokane had  but one transcontinental railway, the  Northern Pacific, and few good hotels.  Today it has five transcontinental lines,  ;ind one or two more are headiXig that  way, with hotels as good as those in  any city in the west, without exception.  In 1889, Spokane had one horse-  car, single track street railway, with  three or four miles of track, and no  suburban railways whatever. Today  it has from 50 to 75 miles of modern  electric lines and as much more of  suburban lines���all of which are growing remarkably each year. And so in  every way Spokane continues to grow.  For instance, 'we...are' told that 1,600  persons earn their livelihood in the  real estate business���that is they all  try to earn it in that manner. The place  has everything that modern cities enjoy and has them in large measure, and  some that few are blessed with. And  yet, with all this growth, its business  men will tell you that there is no boom  in Spokane. Well, perhaps not, but  time will tell. At any rate there is  nothing slow about the place, and it  forges ahead in countless ways from  year-to-year.���- --'���''--~-j--��">���-~  annum or' less, under a. time contract. And the VV. VV. I'. Co. did not  make this favorable contract till they  thought Mr. Graves might develop his  own power in some way, though they  believed they had all the available  water power near Spokane, and would  perpetually have the lighting and  power field in that section to themselves.  However, they once more reckoned  without their host, for Mr. Graves is  not the man to buy extensively and do  it long if he can manufacture for himself���and that is just what he is doing  at this minute. Nine miles below  Spokane he bought a long unused  water power on the river, and today  450 men. under the ablest engineers,  are busy harnessing this gift of nature  at a cost of several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Here some 1 2,000  h.p. will be developed. In two or  three years Mr. Graves will have his  own power and can also sell it as well  as lights all over the Inland Empire.  Incidentally we met VV. S. Macy, of  Phoenix, who is lust taking over the  boarding house at the Nine Mile power  station of the Inland Empire system,  and will hereafter conduct that, as well  as his boarding houses at the Granby  mines, the Skylark mine, and at the  Holden mine in the Lake Chelan  country in Washington, Mr. Graves  being interested in the latter.  FOR GREATER  GRANBY WORKS  Boundary Mining Notes  May Be   Increased   to  4,000  Tons Daily.  Plans For Enlarging Furnaces  Being Drawn.

P. Graves has done and is doing in  Spokane. Three years ago he secured  a franchise for the Spokane Traction  Co. to operate a street railway system,  that business having been monopolized  for many years by the Washington  Water Power Co., which company also  owns most of the magnificent available  power at the falls of the Spokane river  in the heart of Spokane. Evidently,  the monopoly did not think seriously  of Mr. Graves and his plans, but since  then they have decidedly changed their  minds, for Mr. Graves and associates  in his traction enterprises have progressed until it is now a question as  to which is the most important in the  growth of the city.  The graves lines, be it noted,paid expenses from the very start���something  that was not expected. Gradually they  have covered most of the city. Then  they were connected with the Spokane  & Coeur d'Alene electric line, which  runs 35 miles to beautiful Coeur  d'Alene lake. This was a master stroke  of itself, but was followed with others.  For instance, a beginning was made to  connect Spokane with the fertile Pa-  louse country south of Spokane, by  trolley, and today 50 miles of that line  are in operation, with another hundred  to be running at no distant date.  Today the Washington Water Power  Co. is fighting the Graves line at every  possible point, when franchises are  sought and in many other ways. The  big company has also been spurred  into giving a vastly improved service  on its own lines, and actually tries to  accommodate the public���something  never heard of till Mr. Gravts came  into the street railway field. This in  itself was worth while to Spokane  people.  James H. Kennedy, the genial chief  engineer of construction for the Hill  railways into and west of the Boundary, was seen, on one of his periodical  trips to Ottawa, to meet the railway  commission, the members of which  must be pretty well acquainted with  the big engineer, so' well known all  over the Boundary.  Among other railway men met were  Patrick Welch and Mr. Shields, the  Hill railway contractors. Mr. Shields  gave us some interesting particulars of  the new Portland-Seattle railway, to  run almost in an air line from Spokane  to Portland, Oregon. We used to  think that some railway building stunts  were accomplished in the Boundary,  but this new Hill line was a revelation.  Think of a railway line some 300 miles  long to cost about $30,000,000; to  cross mountains and rivers and yet to  have a maximum grade of only one  and three-tenths per cent, per mile; to  have two bridges that will cost $4,000,-  000 alone,.aiKllO-tdiacounl-all-,preocnt  transcontinental railway lines in operating costs.  P. Welch & Co and Porter Bros.,  who are related and associated in business, have contracts on this line that  will cost about $8,000,000 alone.  There are now at work something like  7,000 men, 40 steam shovels and 100  small locomotives. Air compressors  are being used for power for rock  drilling, and millions on millions of  yards of rock and earth will be moved.  This would certainly seem to discount  anything yet attempted in the west in  the way of railway constriction. Burns  & Jordan, who were located in Phoenix for several months when the Hill  line was constructed to Phoenix, have  several miles of grade now under way,  and are doing well with it.  Right here it is worth while noting  some other matters. For instance, it  was the ore that Mr. Graves and his  associates dug out of the mines of  Phoenix that enabled him to get ahead  in the world through the medium of  the Granby Consolidated, and thus to  do things worth while in Spokane. Of  course, it was not merely the possession of means and the backing of cap  italists���something more was needed,  and that was executive ability. This  ability was evidenced in large degree  in the success of the Granby Co., and  is yet being shown right there today.  But in his extensive Spokane affairs,  Mr. Graves has, if possible, shown his  ability to meet and overcome some  most intricate problems���for he had  to hew his way against the bitterest'  and strongest competition that could  Iu imagined.  At present the Graves lines, now  known as the Inland Kmpire railway  system, buy their electric power from  the Washington Water Power Co. at a  low figure, said to be $20 per h.p. per  While we were in Spokane that town  was visited by Savage's Grand English  Opera Co., who played " Madam Butterfly" three times. Besides ourselves,  about 6,000 other persons witnessed  this presentation. It is called a tragic  opera, and it certainly lives right up to  its name, being most magnificently  presented at a cost of some $75,000,  it is claimed. About 175 people are  with the opera, including 57 in the orchestra, and ten cars are required to  transport the company from place to  place. That many people would make  a respectable audience in Phoenix.  But, of course, Phoeniv is still growing,  and we can remember the time when  175 made a respectable audience in  Spokane.  Plans are now being prepared for  the enlargement of the smelting works  of the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting & Power Co., Ltd., at Grand  Forks, whereby the treatment of ore  at that smelter will be approximately  4,200 tons daily, instead of 3,000, as.  at present���when the plant is operated  to its maximum capacity.  For some months past the work of  enlarging the six original furnaces has  been in progress, but has been delayed  from various causes. However, this  work is now well on towards completion and should shortly be finished.  On top of this, however, comes the information as above���to the effect that  the company has not. yet by any means  stopped its enlarging operations, an  announcement that will be received  with satisfaction by all residents of the  Boundary.  The plans being drawn include the  addition of another water jacket to  each of the furnaces in the present battery of eight, and A. B. VV. Hodges,  the local manager, intends to have the  capacity of 4,200 tons of ore daily  available even when one of the blast  furnaces happens to be out of commission and temporarily under repairs.  One matter only remains to. be settled by the company regarding the proposed additional enlargement, and that  is the adequate supply of coke, the  supply of recent months having been  such an uncertain quantity. This matter has already been taken up with the  coal mine operators in the Crow's Nest  country, and assurances received that  all the coke needed will be forthcoming by the time the enlargements are  completed, in the course of ano'her  year, probably.  Boundary smelter managers, how-,  ever, have had some disagreeable experience with the coal and coke dealers in the past, and they feel as  though they really should be "sl.own"  before further enlargements are undertaken. This process of "showing"  is what the Crow's Nest. Pass Coal Co.  and others in the same business are  now at. It is believed they will be  able to supply the much needed coke  in increased quantity, when the railways get in better shape and when all  likelihood of troubles with their employees is settled (or a series of years  to come.  The present equipment at the Granby mines is fully able to keep up with  an average output of 4,000 tons  of ore daily, but with the inauguration  of hoisting through the new Victoria  shaft of the property, it will be a com-  paritively easy matter to supply the ore,  even though other outlets were out of  commission for a time.  In common with all increases of capacity at the Granby smelter, the idea  I'oriiuun Brothers are making a good  lowing iu the Dynamo claim, east of  Greenwood, where   they have  a   two-  fuot gold and silver lead.  By next Monday the Granby smelter  is expected to have six furnaces in  operation, coke shipments now coming  in more Ireely. Ore shipments have  already heen increased.  Water is now down to the 340-foot  level in the Cariboo mine, Camp Mc-  Kinney. ��� G. L. McNicol and A. B.  Hood, of the Cariboo-McKinney lessees, visited the mine last Sunday.  About 20 cars of high grade ore  have been shipped from the Lone  Star, under bond to the B.C. Copper  Co., to the latter's smelter, and the  good work of exploration and, incidentally, shipping, still continues with  satisfactory results.  About 40 men are at work at the  B. C. Copper Co.'s Napoleon mine,  near Marcus, under Supt. Harry Johns.  The property continues to improve,  and bids fair to become one of the  most important holdings of the company. The new tramway to the Great  Northern railway will greatly facilitate  ore shipments.  At first but 20,000 volts were turned  on to the Boundary circuit from the  Bonnington hydro-electrical station on  Kootenay river. When the transformers were sufficiently dried out,  this was increased last week to 40,000  volts, and in a short time the maximum  voltage arranged for in this long distance transmission, 60,000 volts, will  be switched in, for the benefit of several Boundary mines and smelters,  affording ample power, under all circumstances, for a long time to come.  NEW PRESIDENT  FORBX. COPPER  Colgate    Hoyle1   Succeeds  L. Underwood.  Shares to Be Listed on N.  Exchange.  Lack of space in this issue prevents  extended reference to the real estate  and mining stock boomsnow on in Spokane, but our readers can rest assured  that these things have not been overlooked in the metropolis of the Inland  Empire, and that ah the wildcats are  not located in Nevada or British Columbia. The Coeur d'Alene mining  district still has a few that are far from  being tamed���and as for realty, well,  the dealers assert tint it is .noing up  in value over each night. And they  ought to know.  Lord's Day Ac In   Effect.  Beginning tomorrow, the Lord's Day  Act, passed by the Dominion parliament last year, for the better observance of Sunday, will go into effect  throughout Canada. Among other  things, no newspapers are supposed to  be published or sold on Sunday, and  no mines and other works, with certain exceptions, are to be operated.  One of these exceptions is smelting,  which will continue. I he Nelson Daily  News announces th.it 11 will appear to-  morrow, as usual. Ilo.vevei, 110 American papers are to be brought into  Canada on Sunday, according to the  act. Prosecutions under the act cannot be made except with the consent  of the attorney-general of the particular province.  of smelting as much ore as possible in  the present works has been kept well  in mind, so as not to have the greater  expense of enlarged buildings to any  greater extent than necessary. In this  case the output will be increased 33  per cent wtthout necessitating the erection of any new buildings whatever, it  merely amounting to the enlarging of  the present blast furnaces. With the  new steel buildings recently completed  al this plant, the smelter is in the best  possible shape to stand a long run at  the fullest capacity, as soon as sufficient  coke can be had���and the increase  here referred to will give the company  a largely increased copper production  with comparitively small expense for  additional installation.  When the Granby mines make a  steady shipping record ut 4,200 tons  of ore each 24 hours, it means that the  company will be sending out ore at the  rate of more than 1,250,000 tons per  annum, and will be producing refined  copper at the Kite of some 35,000,000  pounds annually.  No Great Danger of   a Coal Strike.  For some days past there has been  apprehension of a   strike   of the   coal  miners in the Crow's Ne^t Pass, thereby   cutting   off coke    supplies    from  Boundary smelters. The present agreement between the United Mine Work  ers of America, and the operating coal  companies  there,  expires  March   51 st  (not March 4th, as published in a mini  ber of papers), and the men and   employers are getting together to draw up  a   new   agreement.      President    John  Mitchell, of the miners, is exper'nl in  Calgary on March   41I1, when   tin-   en  tire matter will he g-ne   into   ami   ar  ranged.  The likelihood of a strike takim:  place is directly denied from I'Ymie,  the center of the coal producing dis  tnct. When the matter is amicably  settled, it will he a source of satis.ac  tion to all interested in the allied indus  tries.  Miners' Union Election Today.  The semi-annual election of officers  of Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, VV.  F.M., occurs today, and considerable  interest is being taken in the choice of  officials for the next six months. The  nominations jnclude Wm. J. Louttit  Hnd-~R.-;-D.^-Mitchell'- for ������-president^;*  Walter Morrison and J. C. Halsey for  financial-secretary; and Frank Knott  and VV. S. Cook for treasurer. A conductor, five trustees, and delegates to  the W.F. of M. and the District Association No. 6 conventions will also  be ballotted on.  Medicos Choose Officers.  Last Wednesday evening the Boundary Medical Association met in Phoenix for the annual election of officers,  members attending from Greenwood  and Grand Forks. The officers chosen  for the ensuing year were as follows :  President, Dr. G. S. Gordon, of Phoenix ; vice-president, Dr. VV. Truax, of  Grand Forks : secretary-treasurer, Dr.  W. Howard Dickson, of Phoenix. .1  1 Following the annual meeting of the  British Columbia Copper Co., Ltd.,  which was held some days ago in the  east, a meeting of the board of directors was held in New York for organization for the ensuing year. Colgate  Hoyt, a prominent New York business  man, was elected president, tD succeed  F. L. Underwood; F. I,, Sommer was  re-elected vice-president, and R. H.  Eggleston was re-elected secretary and  treasurer. Newman Erb was chosen  chairman of the board of directors,  and a new vice-presidency was created,  B. B. Lawrence, who was recently  elected to the directorate, being elevated to that position. An executive  committee, a new departure, was made  up of the following directors : Edwin  Hawley, C. A. Starbuck and B. B.  Lawrence.  It is announced that, when the additional stock of the company, recently authorized by the directors to the  amount of 116,160 shares, has been  subscribed for, the proceeds of which  will be used for reimbursing; the company's treasury for payments made for  the magnificent new .smelting plant and  other permanent improvements, application will be made to the New Yoric  stock exchange to list the sh ires.  Y.  Resuscitatlnj tbe Phoenix Brasr Band.  Prof Johns, the new band  master,  is-making good headway in the revivi  fication of the Phoenix brass band,and  already has a class in training for band  work. As musical talent is present in  no small degree, there is no reason for  not having a first-class brass band in  Phoenix, if this talent is developed by  proper intsruction and leadership. Mr.  I Johns has come here Jto stayjPbringing,  *winfTirm"a'family'of seven." He says"  that Mrs. Palmer, an accomplished  pianist and vocalist,.will arrive here  shortly from the east, and "engage in  teaching the piano and  voice culture.  John Mclnnis, M.L.A, left early  this week to be present at the opening  of the legislative assembly, the initial  session of which will be held next week-  Friday.  Arthur W. Haley, who has been  C.P.R. agent in Phoenix for the last  two years, has tendered his resignation,  to take effect about the 7 th inst. He  will be succeeded by George T. Moir,  of Sandon. Mr. Haley and wife will  move to Coeur d'Alene City, where  they have extensive realty interests.  *���>.��*^a>*^��^a^a^a��>'b���^*��K���^a^a^*^*���^a^^  9  BOUNDARY DIVIDENDS.  94ahao%aa*aa\  +-��-p-*>P-T-a-�� P^+***+*-++BLa*a^aK*a^a.* l^^��il��*j*^��*��*^t**��tr *^^^��5��**����P**  AUTHOR  SHARES.

There was a great clatter throughout the province last Sunday as the

The eyes of the wageworkers are on

Ontario is proposing a tax on the
products of her mines, but only on
profits. As it often happens many
mines produce much ore at a loss, but
in this province the operators are com
pelled to pay a two per cent tax on
their entire output, whether they have
profited or lost by their operations.
The Ontario plan can not be objected
to; but to be compelled to pay on the
gross output, which has not been profitable, does not seem like a square
Are the authorities at Ottawa acting
wisely in encouraging more Doukhobors
to immigrate into this country ? There
is already no end of trouble with those
now in the Northwest. At the present
time those located near Yorkton, in
Saskatchewan, about 200 in number,
have refused to pay their taxes, amoun-
ing to about $3000, and have been in
open rebellion against the local authorities, the mounted police having been!
The Post-Intelligencer of Seattle, entertains great respect for the Japanese.
and is moved to condemn President
Roosevelt for the manner in which he
settled the question of admitting Japanese to the public schools of San
Francisco. It says that Mayor Schmitz
actually buncoed the president into
agreeing to exclude Japanese laborers
from the United States, as a condition
of opening the public schools of San
Francisco to Japanese pupils under 16
years of age. Thi P.-I., of course, is
looking at the matter from a purely
commercial basis. Some people can
never see anything from any other
standpoint, but it is well that in that
country, as well as in this, they are not
in the majority. Any class of human
beings immigrating to this country who
are too clannish, biggoted or ignorant
to conform to our social or governmental methods, should be barred
from it.
One of the largest sun-spots that
has ever been observed, is now to be
seen on the face of that luminary. It
is large enough to be detected with
the naked eye, if precaution is taken
to look through smoked glass. The
dimensions of the spot are given as
118,000 miles in length and 30,000
miles in breadth. The earth could be
dropped into it without materially
altering its appearance. Sun-spots
are usually connected with unusual
electrical disturbances on the earth.
Photographs of them rhow that they
are something like vast whirlpools of
flaming gas. No satisfactory cause
has ever been offered ' for their occurrence.—-Colonist.
It is commonly observed that Canadians are long-lived. There are no
statistics to prove that they are the
longest lived of any race of people,
but instances of longevity are so common in this country that it is probably
the case that no other nation can
show a more telling record. As an
example, take the obituary column of
the current number of the Dominion
Presbyterian.' There are thirteen
deaths recorded, seven of them women
and six men. Being'.Presbyterian,
practically all of them are of Scottish
descent, which may or may not account for their longevity. - Every one
of the thirteen was over seventy years
of age, five of them were over eighty,
and five of them over ninety, one being
ninety-nine. This, of course, is exceptional even in Canada, yet this is
an obituary record taken at random,
and it would seem to establish this
country as a place where the evening
of our days is long.—Ottawa Journal.

W. F. of M. has been called to meet
in Rossland on March 5th.
The Slocan Star, a zinc property,
has paid over half a million in dividends, and as the tariff lid is off, it may
do that again.
Ore shipmencs from Rossland last
week were : Centre Star, 1,410 tons ;
Le Roi, 3,150 tons; Le Roi Two, 510
tons; total for the week, 5,070 tons;

Two Ore shoots of condiderabie
magnitude and of good grade have
been located on the 800 foot level of
the White Hear, Rossland. The management is much pleased over the
finds, and feels confident, that the

Shipments from the Queen Victoria
mine, situated near Nelson and owned
by 'James Cronin and associates,
have been delayed by a series of trivia

Do Not Crowd the System.
The first warm days of spring bring
with them a desire to get out and enjoy the exhiliratmg air and sunshine.
Children that have been housed up all
winter are brought out and you wonder
where they all came from. The heavy
winter clothing is thrown, aside and
many shed their flannels. Then a cold
wave comes and people say that grip
is epidemic. Colds at this season are
even more dangerous than in midwinter, as there is much more danger
of pneumonia. Take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy, however, and you will
have nothing to fear. It always cures,
and we have never known a cold to
result in pneumonia when it was used.
It is pleasant and safe to take. Children like it.    For sale by all druggists.

Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is Both Agreeable and Effective.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has
no superior for coughs, colds and
croup, and the fact that it is pleasant
to take and contains nothing in any
way injurious has made it a favorite
with mothers. Mr. W. S. Pelham, a
merchant of Kirksville, Iowa, says:
"For more than twenty years Chamberlain's Congh Remedy has been my
leading remedy for all throat troubles.
It is especially successful in cases of
croup. Children like it and my customers who have used it will not take
any other."     For sale by all druggists.

Weber had been  suffering with the exciting delusion  thai the house is combined  against him getting a square deal on  any legislation that he may propose.  Two weeks ago he became so desperate  thai he began carrying a revoiver with  the avowed intention of using it if he  saw that he was being discriminated  against. His brother was sent for and  took Weber away for a few days. Last  week he was again in his seat and apparently improved, but the consequent  excitement soon unsettled his mind  again. Many things happen in state  and provincial legislatures, nowa-days,  liable to " warp" weak minds.  ���������  Ralph Smith, member  of the   Dominion   house from Nanaimo, by general political forecast, is slated for the  governorship of the Yukon.  �����  As time passes, the fact becomes  more and more evident that we must  roll up the yesterdays and put them  and their methods away - with- other  things that are done. Steam belongs  to the yesterdays, and as quickly as  it is practical, the barriers of conservatism are falling away before the immense superiority of electricity. It  will not be many years until all our  industrial plants and railroads are being run by the greatest of all powers.  The manufacturers are not slow in  adopting electricity throughout the  length and breadth of the Dominion���  for as the electric light demonstrated  its superiority over the tallow candle���  so is electric power proving its economy and reliability over steam for all  manufacturing purposes. All of which  is favorable to maintaining the present  price of copper, and very likely to lift  it much higher.  It is staled that irnckliiyiii;.-, mi die  extension of the Kettlo .Valley railway  line up the North Kork will begin  about the middle of the month.  The Lethbridge, Macleod and Calgary division of the C.P.R. will, he  taken out of the jurisdiction of Superintendent Nihlock and added to the  Crowsnest Pass division under Superintendent Erickson.  The G. T. P. has bej.un to organize  its western system and one of the official appointments is that of O O.  Winter to the leading executive position. Mr. Winter is said to Ik- a man  of high ability and extensive experience. At present he is superintendent  of.the C,P. R. at Urandoii. , He was  formerly in a similar, position at Kbit  William.  An effort may quite possibly be made  by tbe British Columbia Klceirie company to secure control of ihe Iwqtii  mall & Nanaimo railway if the search  now being made by the company's engineers should result in ihe discovery  of an additional waler supply, which  would enable the lisquimalt & Nanaimo system to be worked by electric  power.  The gross earnings of twenty-live  railroads for the first week of February  were $7,689,521, against $7.21)8,590  for the first week of February, 1906,  an increase of $303,931 Thirteen  roads show increases and twelve decreases. Since fuly i��t, these roads  have earned $277,500,141, an increase  of $26,540,750 over' ibe same lime  last year. Twenty roads show increases  and five decreases.

On Friday of last week the Quebec  Daily Telegraph newspaper'office was  destroyed by fire, causing a loss estimated at $100,000. The fire, which  started in the boiler room, shot up to  the top floor so rapidly that the printers  had to escape in their shirt sleeves,  and were glad to get out that way.' All  the English printing incidental to the  present session of the Quebec legislature now in session was being done in  the Telegraph office, and the loss of  this will not only be considerable, but  cause confusion in connection with ihe  house proceedings as well. Xothing  was saved excepting a few office books  All the newspaper forms as well as the  forms of votes and proceedings of the  assembly, and English copies of bills,  were lost.

The provincial government has decided to make the attempted sale of  13,000 acres of the Tsimpsean reserve,  by that tribe of Indians through the  Dominion authorities, to the Grand  Trunk Pacific railway, the occasion of  an effort to settle once and for all the  question of provincial rights to the  reversion in such lands when proven  to be not required for the use and  benefit of the Indians.  ii*  J. J. Hill, of railway fame, is pro  phecying hard times ahead. He says  not only the railways but all great industrial operations are about to adopt  a system of curtailment and economy  that will very materially affect the present condition of prosperity. Of course,  Mr. Hill's scarecrow is intended more  for wage-workers than for bankers.  ��*��  Oom Paul's supporters are again  leaders in Transvaal public affairs.

Possible troubles which may be in  store for this and other countries, from  the present puffed up slant-eyed Jap,  many be inferred in many ways. They  are still coming to A iierica, and their  ingress is becoming a very serious  question both here and across the line.  On Saturday a steamer arrived at Vic  toria with many Japanese immigrants  on board. No less than 36 of these  were on their way to San Francisco,  despite the antipathy of that city to  the children of the Mikado. One of  these who was questioned on the subject said that his nation would continue to pour into the States despite  whatever laws might be passed to prevent their going. He further stated  that there was a world wide oxodus  from the land of the Rising Sun, and  that his brothers were gradually  peopcling many countries. A* an illi-  stration he quoted the Hawaiian Islands, where he said, the majority of  the populace was of his color, and had  carried with them there mat mil'tant  spirit which had made them faiv.ous.  In these islands he said there was a  standing army of Jars  Many of the Japs who landed here  were on their way to Prince Rupert.  Among the yellow men this embryo  city is looked upon as the coming 1 _I  Dorado. Each incourng vessel is  bringing in quota to help on the construction work at th : new tirand  Trunk Pacific terminus, and reports  which have reached Victoria from the  laps already there, show thai they are  well satisfied with the haven they  have reached.  LORD'S DAY  ALLIANCE ACT.  What  Will be  The Attitude  of   Government.  As the date for the coming into  effeel of the Lord's Day Act, recently  passed by the Dominion parliament  lias arrived, there is a good deal ol  speculation as to what its effect will he  111 British Columbia. There is speculation as to whether the provincial  authorities will lend their sanction to  the act by approving of the prosecutions under it.  The Victoria. Times says that lion  IP J. Fulton, the attorney general wa-  approached by officials of Ihe Lord'*  Day Alliance a few days ago and asked  to lend his support 10 1I11: enforcing of  the act by approving <>( prosecutions  under it. Hon. Mr.' Fulton gave no  definite answer to kev. Dr. Koehesler,  western secretary of the Alliance, postponing his answer until he had conferred with the other members of the  government.  When asked what the government  was going to do in the matter, the  the attorney-general said lie could not  say what was to be done.  He did not care to express an opin  ion respecting it without first consulting Ihe other members of the government. As he understood the act, the  attorney-general of each province was  required to give his approval to the  prosecutions undjr the act before the  act became effective. He did not suppose that the attorney-general would  be expected to look into eveiy individual prosecution under the act.  It would appear from this that Hon.  Mr. Fulton would incline to think that  the provincial government's action  should really be one approving in a  general way of prosecutions under the  act or refusing to approve of any. In  short, it would appear as if the provincial government regards its position as  one in which it is called upon to decide whether the act shall come into  effect in the province.  Under these circumstances, there  can be no question that considerable  pressure will be brought to bear on  the local government by both sides on  the question���on the part of the Lord's  Day Alliance to have the law enforced,  and by other interests which believe  the act is ahead of public opinion in  the province to have it remain a dead  letter.  Just what the act will do with the  railroads, or what the railroads will do  with the act is now a matter of much  conjecture among railway men in the  west. This act went into ��� effect on  March 1, and the higher officials of  the various railroads are now giving a  good deal of time to consideration of  the intricacies of this most impoitant  piece of legislation. The act devotes  considerable attention to railroads,  particularly as regards the working  hpurs of trainmen and other employees,  and to adhere to it will doubtless need  considerable preparation, as well as  an incraase in the number of employees. As regards the running of  freight trains, certain restrictions are  also laid down, which may at first  cause a good deal of inconvenience,  especially when a heavy traffic movement prevails. With a view to deciding what action is to be taken by the  Canadian Pacific railway in regard to  the act coming into force, William  Whyte, second vice-president, and G.  B. Bury, general superintendent, are  conferring.  Fkbek  S TELL FRIENDS  / _*- Jt CT-NA '81'OPULA JiJ'J'V  Jil IXNO SMALL MEASUJIJC  DUE TO THE GKXXliOUM  J'llATSE GIVEN IT IIY  GRATEFUL PEOPLE.

There are many emulsions of Cocl Liver Oil, all  more or less good, no doubt, and all very much alike,  tbe principal difference being in the quantity and  quality of the oil that enters into their composition,  and perhaps something in the method of manufacture.  on the other hand, while it is an emulsion of Cod  Liver Oil, occupies a place entirely above and beyond  the ordinary preparations above referred to.  The reason is, that FKRROl. combines with the oil  Iron and Phosphorus, which all other emulsions lack,  and without which no emulsion is anywhere near  perfect.  In FERR0L the well-known virtues of Cod Liver  Oil as a flesh and weight producer, the unparalleled  qualities of Iron as a biood builder and purifier, as  well as the undoubted advantages of Phosphorus as a  Nerve and Brain tonic, are till not only combined and  retained, but wonderfully enhanced by the process of  amalgamation.

P  After months of delay, Postmaster  Matheson has received most of the  new fixtures for the postoffice, and is  proceeding to make some improvements to his place of business.  The subject for Sunday at the  Methodist church will be: "A choice  that was the measure of a soul," being  the third in the series, "Characters  that have moulded the centuries."  Morrin, Thompson & Co., are expecting to establish a commission  house at Regina, Sask., where there  is ;in excellent opening for such a concern. Mr. Thompson will likely have  chaige. of the business.  Joe Heinrich, of Spokane, who successfully threw Everett Baker three  times 111 an hour on February 15th,  in Greenwood, has arranged to hold  a wrestling match at the Phoenix opera  house'on Tuesday March 12th, when  M. P. Bradley, of the Snowshoe mine,  and Harry Quinn, the big cage-tender at  Granby mines, will go up against him.  Heinrich agrees to throw each man  twice in one hour, actual wrestling  time. Bradley is the amateur champion of Iowa.  The Catholic Ladies' Aid have Offered $25 in gold in prizes to those  selling the most tickets for tne Easter  Monday Calico ball, to be given April  1st.

He is  now located in New Westminster,  where he had charge of the construction of the new buildings for the B.C.  Distiileries Co., Ltd.  S. C.

Mr. Keffer will probably be  absent three weeks, and is slated for  the presidency of the engineers for the  ensuing term.  Monday evening the Granby mines  office staff assembled at the company's  office and presented Dr. R. B. Boucher,  who recently resigned as mine physician to take up special studies in Germany, with a fine album of photographic views of the Granby mines  and smelter from the earliest days to  the present. The work is the production of Charles M. Campbell, the  efficicent surveyor at the Granby mines,  and makes a souvenir that will doubtless be highly prized by the doctor.

Note.���The Editor does not hold himself persona, ly responsible for the opinions of his  correspondents.  Editor, Phoenix Pioneer:  DearSir,���I know you do not want unnecessary controversy, but, sir, I can  not allow Cynicus's letter of last week  to go by unchallenged.  Neither myself nor those associated  with me have any sympathy with  the  article that appeared in the Methodist  Recorder, and as soon as I saw it I  wrote a correction to the editor. .   No,  Cynicus; I do not want undue credit,  and   I ��� would   be sorry indeed to see  such   a   pleasing' victory   marred   by  usurpation of credit that belongs to all  who  worked  so. faithfully   towards a  desired end.    Perhaps, sir, if you had  had   a   little  more   information  you  would   not have   tried  to thrust your  sarcasm where it 'did not belong.    Let  me inform you that the article was not  sent   from  Phoenix   nor  written by a  citizen of Phoenix, and when you know  that the writer has never been  a  Lib  eral, perhaps the;" Liberal falsehoods"  will appear to you rather as virtues.  lam glad you wrote in the strain  you did, Cynicus, for you show us  where you stand, and confirm the impression in our minds who you are,  and with this light we will be able to  judge any material that emanates from  your pen in the future accordingly. I  feel assured that all you are working  for is to bring about discord in our  ranks, if possible, and your latest attempt only serves to show how far you  will go if you get the opportunity. Fair  and honest criticism I dc not resent,  and I know you are fair, for you are  anxious to continue paying some of  the $6,000 to .the city.���Yours, with  out cover of nom-de-plume,  C. Wellesley "Whittaker.  Marshall���Roslcot Wedding.  When James Marshall, proprietor of  the Hotel Brooklyn, started for Spokane last week, only his most intimate  friends knew that he had been ensnared  by cupid and would not return to  Phoenix alone. On Thursday, February  2 ist, James Marshall and Effie Rosicot  were united in the bonds of matrimony  in Spokane, the ceremony being performed by justice Stocker. J. E. W.  Thompson was the best man, and a  number of Phoenix friends were present to wish the couple all the happiness possible. They left the next day  for the coast, where Mr. and Mrs.  Marshall are visiting the former's sister  at Ladysmith, on ��� Vancouver Island,  before returning to Phoenix.  "Jimmy" Marshall is one of the old  est residents of this camp, having arrived here in 1895, and has made his  permanent residence in Phoenix ever  since. He was largely interested in  mining claims here, his interests in  that line s}ill being .valuable, to say  nothing of the fine Hotel Brooklyn, to  which he devotes his entire time. The  bride is also well and favorably known  here, having resided in Phoenix for  some years. The Pioneer joins their  many friends in wishing them a long  life of happiness. ���'������������  /is  is  /ft  JUST ARRRIVED   A complete, neuortinent. of  fancy hand painted china  in lieaiilifnl designs. this ih  by'far tne lineal, china we  have ever liii'l in stock.
