Manager Hodges Leaves Granby���Remarkable ! Growth oi  the Big Boundary Producer Under His Management  As stated exclusively in the Phoenix  Pioneer two weeks ago, A. B. W.  Hodges, has resigned as local manager  of the Granby company. He leaves  next week with his family for Lima,  Peru, South America, where on April  1st he becomes general manager of the  Cerro de Pasco Mining company. Mr,  Hodges has become well-known in the  mining world as the result of his remarkable metallurgical success in connection with the big Granby properties, and his removal to fields ot greater  conquest is of more than ordinary  significance.  In the spring of 1899 Mr. Hodges  was employed by the Granby interests  to design and build a smelter to treat  the ores of the company's mines, which  are located at Phoenix. He assisted  Jay P. Graves, then and now vice-  president and general manager of the  Granby company, to select a smelter  site; and the smelter was blown in on  Aug. 21, 1900, with an initial capacity  of 700 tons daily. It was Mr. Hodges'  plan to constantly increase the capacity of the reduction works, which  was done gradually until today the  plant has a capacity of 5,000 tons pf  ore each 24 hours. Mr. Hodges also  invented many economic contrivances,  among them the self-charging electrical  feeding device, which, it is stated!  saves ihe company upwards of $80,000  annually.  And yet; those same officials saw the  day when the Granby company was  paying the C. P.' R.' ''ah average of  $r.ooo a day in freight 'charges until  the Great1 Northem "built into the  country to secure some'of the tonnage.  Mr. Hodges ��� was justifying in the  most practicable way possible the faith  that Mr. Graves and his associates had  pur* in him, and 'letting- the C.P.R;  local and district officials explain as  best they might why the Granby company did not go to srmish to verify the  prediction of the railway experts.  On April 1 Mr. Hooges will become  general manager'of the highest smelter  in the world and the largest in South  America, when he assumes charge of  the Cerro de Pasco'Mining company's  mines' and reduction works���the elevation being 14,3067 feet above sea  level. The mines and smelter are located about 140 miles from Lima,  Peru, the production being 'copper,  with some silver. The copper runs  from six to eight per cent, to the ton  of ore and the four blast furnaces 'and  five reverberafones'reduce from 1,000  to 1,360 tons of ore daily,  the  annual  TO BE CONTEST  FOR CONTROL  Trouble in New Dominion Officialdom ���  B.C. Copper Has 53 Per Cent  of Stock But Not Control  The- affairs of the Dominion Copper  company have passed through many  acute stages in the pn��t few years, and  there appears to be no let up to trouble  in its officialdom.     ;  -A dispatch from Boston says that  there is every likelihood that unless a  compromise has been effected in the  meantime there will be a contest for  control of the New- Dominion Coppei  Co. board of directors at the first meei  ing of stockholders to be held in June.  As the matter how stands the British  Columbia Copper Co. owns 53% of  the New Dominion capital stock, yet ii  does not control the board of directors,  Having but two members.^ ���*'���  "' Saniud UnternieyeHs credited with  being in actual control of the Dominion  board, although he personally appears  neither as director nor stockholder.

E. McAllister, general manager of  the British Columbia Copper company,  left for New Yoik on Tuesday.  P. W.

Roosa, liquidator of theformer  Dominion CopperCo., is giving notice  to creditors that he is about to deal  with the affairs of the company under  the Winding Up Act."  Jacob Langeloth, president of the  Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting  and Power company, is expected to  arrive in the Boundary today, on a  visit to the company's smelter and  mines. It is about two years since  the president's last visit to Phoenix.  At the recent meeting of the directors of the Granby company, no action  was taken on the dividend. The statement was made that nothing would be  done in the matter until all the new  stock has been issued. In December  a dividend of 2% was deiared.  B*. W. Lincoln, chairman of the  protective committee of the dissenting  stock rnd bondholders of Dominion  Copper Co. is sending a letter to  security holders in which he says that  counsel for the committee have advised  that suits for misappropriation of funds  and mismanagement against the old  officers   should   be   brought   in  TWO MINERS'  SUDDEN CALL  Drilled Into "Bootleg"  on Tuesday  Blast of Powder Kills A. Boyd  and J. 0;. Mullin  Death with awful suddeness came to  two miners, Archie Boyd arid J O.  Mullin, in the Granby mine on' Tuesday morning, the result of drilling into  a "bootleg."     '    '  The accident occurred about 10,45  in stope 39, where the men were operating a machine. They drilled into  dynamite and the blast hurled both to  Instant death, their bodies being 7con:  siderably mutilated. They were boih  experienced .miners and .Boyd had  been working at the Granby for about  five years.    The news of the accident cast a  gloom over the city, Boyd having a  large circle of friends among whom he  had been very popular. He was a  native of .Antigonish, Nova Scotia^  a"n"3 'was 24 years of age. ' Mullin had  just ' recently ' come from Cianbrook'  and Tuesday morning was his first  shift at the Granby. He was 41 years  of age and came originally from  Illinois.' Both were members of Phoenix Miners' Union.

It ,s   beautifully  but j positions  perhaps a hundred men were employed /company.  to a point where it requires now close  to a thousand men to attend to the  needs of the mine and smelter. From  six to eight mineral claims to over a  thousand acres of mineral - bearing  ground; from no shipments whatever  to over 4,000 tons of ore daily ; from  constant disbursements without income  to where the company has, in the past,  paid dividends at the rate of 12% per  year, though at present, due to the low  price of copper, the dividends are  eight per cent on the capital of $15,-  000,000; from a comparatively local  industry to one that has interested in  it some of the foremost copper magnates of the United States, and has  seen the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill  mines, the originals of the Granby  group, grow from prospects to a point  where they have no equals in the  province for low producing and smelting costs, for size of ore bodies and for  dividends actually paid back to shareholders, amounting at present to about  $4,000,000.  One chapter regarding the Granby  company, hitherto unwritten, is worth,  recording here. When the C. P. R.,  Canada's greatest railway, spent some  millions of dollars in the construction  of its line into the Boundary district,  where the Granby mines and smelter  are located, it secured the most experienced men available, to go to the  district and report on the mines there,  particularly on theGianby mines, then  coming into prominence. The report,  it is now well known, was adverse, and  ihe president of the C.P.R. was told  that the Granby people would doubtless complete the smelter, and run it  for a while but eventually it would  close, and there would be a lot of rusting machinery at mines and smelting  site, a monument to some one's poor  judgment. To bear this out, when the  Granby company wished the railway  company to run a little ��� spur from the  main line to the smelter, the railway  people actually required the putting up  of a large cash amount to pay for the  same, so little faith did Canada's rail-  >vay president have in the proposition.  crowned "with  incidents   and  and  climaxes  The Cerro de  Pasco Mining  com-i .,....-    ......  has   comparatively few" share-1-,n- * -^pmely artistic, sett.ng  and  pany  holders of its $ro,ooo,boo of capital  stocky jr. bfeing chiefly held" by ].'

It is certainly a tribute to the  esteem in which Mr. Hodges is held  by some of the greatest copper men  of the east that he should be offered a  very large salary to take entire charge  of their metallugical operations in Peru.

It is  a stbry oTmodern life, ahd'a "study of  characters and passions, fascinating in  theme and plot, fresh and vigorous in  style and worthy in every way of the  most careful attention on the part of  the audience. The author's methods  are the methods of human nature seen  through the medium of a clear discriminating intellect. Though an inflexible realist, what he demands is.not  reality, not life but the closest, tensest,  most faithful translation of life. In  the telling many truths..are brought out,  and the fact forced "home upon the  auditor that a man with the right stuff  in him, though Born and raised in ob-  surity,.can, if he will, rise up above  the" surroundings and make a mark  and a name for himself in the world,  while the man born to the advantage  of wealth and position, if he has not  the stamina to withstand temptation  'and to fight a - stfaightfor warded- fight,  will sink. Not only is the story a remarkable one, but it affords opportunity  for the highest kind of acting, which  we are assured are embraced in all  parts of the splendid Eckhardt company.

AVALANOHE <  7   OARRIBSJBIGr TOLL  ��� . *  Early last Saturday morning, what  is probably the worst accident in the  history of the mountain section of the  C.P.R., occurred near Rogers Pass,  where an avalanche of snow descened  carrying with it tons of rocks, boulders,  and uprooted trees from the mountainside. With incredible force and swift*  ness this mountainous mass swept  upon a party of 61 trackmen and employees who were working at clearing  track of another slide that occurred  the previous evening. Of the entire  party, it is believed not one remains to  tell the exact story of the accident, all  being buried beneath the avalanche to  a depth of 50 feet, or. carried into the  deep canyon.  To rent, the old Norden hotel  building; thoroughly cleaned and in  good shape; several rooms well furnished.   Apply to A. Almstrom.  NOTICE.

Mr. Kinney, the noted mountain climber, who,  with Phillips, an Ontario guide, scaled  the highest peak of the Canadian  Rockies, Mount Robson, last August,  has again achieved honor, this time on  a surgeon's operating table.  Recently little Dorothy Meansette,  daughter of a weir known citizen of  Keremeos, was seriously burned as a  result of standing too near the stove in  the schoolhouse. A considerable  amount of cuticle was required to graft  upon the wound. ���' It was' willingly  volunteered by Rev.' Mr. Kinney, Dr.  McEwan performing tbe operation.  To the gratitude of'the family of the  injured Rirl have been added the praise  and commendation of the citizens to  the intrepid mountain-climber, for his  self-sacrifice, the clergyman submitting  himself to the surgeon's knife with the  same courage with which he braved the  dangers of the rugged trail and blizzard  in ascending Mount;Robson.

You can't equal Zam-Buk for sores  of all kinds, whether recent or of long  standing. That is the opinion of Mrs.  Wilson, of 110 Wickson Ave., Toronto.  Mrs. Wilson says:  "About four years ago a sore spot  appeared on the right side of my face,  just about the angle of the jaw. This  spot increased in size until it became  about half an inch in diameter, and  very troublesome. I went to a doctor,  from whom at different times during  fifteen years I had received treatment,  but the ointment I ,got did not have  any good effect on the sore. I had it  cauterized, tried poultices and all kinds  of salves, but it was no good, and this  continued for four years. A sample ol  Zam-Buk was one day left at our house,  and I used it.  "Although the quantity was so small,  it seemed to do me some good, so I  purchased from Mr. Bauld, Druggist,  Scolland and Yonge Streets, a supply  of Zam-BuK. Each box did me more  and more good, and to my delight, before I had been using Zam-Buk three  weeks, I saw that it was going to heal  the sore In less than a month it was  healed! It has now been healed for  almost a year, and at the present time  the only trace of it is a small patch of  skin a little whiter than the surrounding tissue. If Zam-Buk can heal a sore  of this kind, which has defied all treatment for four years, I am sure it must  oe a thing needed in scores of homes."  Try Zani Buk for eczema, ulcers,  sores, bad leg, varicose ulcers, skin  ruptions, face spots, baby's rashes, inflamed places, piles, blood poisoning  and all skin injuries and diseases. 50c  all druggists and stores, or post free  from Zam Buk Co., Toronto, for price.

Winnipeg, March 7 -���The C.P.R.  will have an alternative route to the  coast within two years, which will  mean practically another transcontinental system, as the company has decided to complete the Crow's Nest  Pass line through to Vancouver as  quickly as possible.  This road is in operation at present  as far as Midway, but the extension of  it through to the Pacific coast has long  been contemplated by the company.  It is only within the past few days*  however, that anything definite has  been known in the matter, although a  decision was arrived at during the conference in Montreal recently, when the  construction program for the year was  formulated.  It has no doubt been hastened by  the activity of J. J. Hill who has been  building spurs in British Columbia at  such a rate that, failing action by the  C.P.R., he will enjoy a monopoly of  the through traffic between Vancouver  and the Kootenays via the rich Similkameen   and   Okanagan   districts.  The big coal deposits of the Crow's  Nest Pass country, as  well as the fruit  valleys of the Okanagan, are tapped by  these branches.    Now the Great Northern is hard at work connecting up  these spurs with a through line to Vancouver, and a big force of men has  this week  been  set at  work  in the  neighborhood of Princeton building  a  line through the  Hope  mountain to  form this connecting link.    Simultaneously with this activity on the part of  the   Great   Northern  comes  the an  nouncement that the C.P.R.'s  survey  ing party in charge of W. I. Bassett, a  well known railway engineer has just  reached Vancouver, having completed  the   location  survey  over  the Hope  Mountain for the company.  It  is   stated that, the  C.P.R.  has  been irfdffe successful1���; securirig'a low  gradient across the summit.    A maximum gradient of 2.2  per cent,  has  been secured all the way from Hope,  on the Fraser river,  to Penticton, at  the foot of Okanagan  lake, a  distance  of 130 miles.    At  Hope  the Fraser  river will be bridged, and the line con  nected up with  the main line of the  company into Vancouver, while at Penticton  it  will   be   carried across the  summit, and proceed via the west fork  of the Kettle river, to reach the Crow's  Nest Pass line now in operation as far  as Midway.  Two years from now it is said will  see the completion of the line.  ATTACKS BENCH OF  BRITISH COLUMBIA  In the legislature at Victoria on the  4th inst., H. B. MacGowan, one of the  members for Vancouver, delivered  scathing attack on unnamed members  of the supreme court bench in- British  Columbia.  He said: "A man appointed public  adminstration in a new county, appointed to protect those who cannot  piotect themselves���a man who would  betray that trust is a criminal indeed.  Better that he decorate the penitentiary, better that he be decorated with  a shaved head than a wig. That is  what is coming to him* and that is  what he will get."  MacGowan went on to say- that a  beachcomber and a ghoul were noblemen beside the man who, clothed in  the King's authority, would rob the  dead. He referred to the disappearance of dead miners.' gold dust lo the  Yukon. A widow appeared and laid  11 charge and the man was tent up for  trial. The trial was delayed and the  man lelt the country and was later  promoted to the court, finally arriving  on the. supreme conn bench. MacGowan declared the highest legal authority in the province put tbe following estimation on the supreme -court  bench of British Columbia: Two lunatics, one fool and one scoundrel and  a fugitive from justice.

Few characters are left'Jin America  of the stamp of the late John Houston,  and there were never many like him.  While a product of the East, he was  altogether of the West in his style and:  his eccentricities, and like many other;  men of peculiarities was withal generous;  and square-dealing. He came from  the village of Alton, Ontario, and for;  years peregrinated about the West.;  Some would have called him a tramp  printer. He could set type without  copy, it was his usual way of getting;  out copy, and was quite an art in itself.  So, he would remain in a town until he  became restive or until a new mining  camp presented itself, and then the  dust of the trail would envelop him, as  with his hand outfit he struck out for  the new Eldorado.
