McMillan, the Pioneer lias received a copy  of the London'Financial News,givinga  complete report of the proceedings at  the annual meeting of the LeRoi Mining Co.; Ltd, held in London on the  i Sth of February. Mr.McMillan is managing director of the LeRoi, as well as  holding the same position with the  Snowshoe in this camp. The report  of the LeRoi is an interesting one,!  and shows that great mining company  to be in decidedly improved condition  since Mr. McMillan was appointed to  his present position with the company.  .Probably the most interesting part  of the extended report to Boundary  residents, however, is contained in the  address of Mr. McMillan to the shareholders, where he referred to the  Boundary and the new line of the  Great Northern to Phoenix. The following extract is taken from the report  as printed in the Financial News:  "In the Boundary district there are  large and. well developed mines turning out ah immense daily tonnage of  ores, and can be smelted .much more  cheaply than the Rossland ores, making them very desirable for smelting  purposes- at^Northport.7; Our} .general  manager'says that we need these Boundary ores to mix with the ore.j we are  now getting from Rossland, to better  enable us to do economical smelting.  At present there are no means of getting them to Northport, owing to the  fact that the Great Northern Railway,  which serves our smelter, is still 20  miles distant from those Boundary  mines. I have had several interviews  with Mr. J. J. Hill, of St. Paul (president of the Great Northern Railway)  in regard to this matter, and on Monday last received a cable from him stating that he expects to commence the construction of this line as soon as the snmv  is off the ground in the spring."  ,     Ratified Oread Traak Pacific.  London March 8.��� The Grand  Trunk railroad shareholders at a meeting today ratified-the agreement with  the Canadian government for the construction of the Grand Trunk line to  the Pacific.  The decision was arrived at only after a prolonged diciission. 7 The meeting was packed and at one stage of  the proceedings the tone was unmistakably hostile to embarking in so huge  an enterprise.

General Ntanager Hays, who had  come from Canada specially to attend  the meeting, saved the situation and  when the final vote was taken there  were only a few opponents to the  Grand Trunk railroad undertaking to  build a transcontinental road.

A report from Grand Forks this  week is to the effect that the company  expect to have 1200 men at work between Phoenix and that city, and construction will be rushed with all possible speed.

There is a lot of heiivy rock work to be  done on the Phoenix branch. It is  reported that W. I. Bassett, C. E., and  J. H.

S. F. Parrish, manager of the LeRoi  mine, at Rossland, and well known in  the Boundary for his long connection  with the B. C. mine in Summit camp,  is said to be dangerously ill in Spokane.  A few days ago he was operated upon  lor a growth inthe nose, since which to  complications indicating blood poisoning have set in, and it is feared he may  not recover. Mr. Parrish has many  friends in the Boundary,  Two meetings of the city couucil  have been held tkis week, a special  meeting Monday and the regular week  ly session on Wednesday evening. At  both meetings the only subject considered was the deadlock between. the  board of police commissioners and the  city council, growing out of the case in  the police court of last week against  Chief of Police Flood.  Monday's meeting was productive of  a resolution calling for the resignation  of the chief and also for that of W. R.  Williams both as police commissioner  and as police magistrate. It was given  out by the six councilmen that-if this  was not done they would resign in a  body.  At Wednesday's meeting, however,  something of the spirit of conciliation  was shown, after a protracted session,  by Mr. Williams announcing that he  would resign as a police commissioner  and Aid. Birnie making a similar announcement, together with the statement by the mayor that, as soon as he  could get a provincial policeman to act  as chief of police for the time being,  Chief Flood would be suspended. It  will thus be seen that there was some  give and take on both sides. It is understood that the mayor will recommend Alderman McDonald for one of  the new police commissioners and submit several other names for the third  to be chosen from, the Mayor himself  being on the police board.  Increase Not Decided Upon Yei.  The Pioneer is informed by Manager Graves, of the Granby Co., that in  the interview lately given in Spokane,  which was quoted last week in this  paper, the impression is given that the  company is contemplating the immediate enlargement of the plant by s6me  eight furnaces. What Mr. Graves did  say was that the ground had been surveyed to show the advisability of increasing the Granby smelting plant,  that the superintendent was now considering that question, and that the  matter would be laid before the board  of directors before any action was  taken.  A dispatch from New York states  that the British Columbia Copper Co.  has issued a circular to the shareholders  announcing the abandment.of its plan  to consolidate with the Snowshoe, because of failure of the latter to meet requirements deemed essential by the  British-Columbia directors to make  the plan advantageous to the shareholders of the British Columbia Copper Co." British Columbia Copper Co.  stock deposited with the Continental  Trust Company will be returned immediately on the surrender of receipts.  The circular says:  "Improved conditions in the property  render the failure of the consolidation  plan of no great consequence. Your  directors take this opportunity to advise  you that your blast furnaces are in fnll  operation,with ample ore supplies; that  the earnings are in excess of all expenses  and converting and electrical plantsare  rapidly approaching completion and  will be at work, adding materially to  the net earnings."  British Columbia officials will not  talk,.but it is. surmised that ;mpney"  mirket conditions are chiefly responsible for the hitch in the deal and that  it will go through later. Under the  proposed plan a new British corporation  was to be formed and and new working capital raised in London. The money  market there now is adverse to new  flotations.  The Kettle Valley Lines, which has  a charter to build from Grand Forks  up the North Fork of Kettle River to  Franklin camp, is applying now for a  charter to continue that proposed line  on to Spence's bridge, beyond the  Similkameen, on the main line of the  C. P.R.  Thomas Roderick has been spending the week here from Summit camp,  where he is working on the Summit  group, in which he and G. W. Rum-  berger recently purchased a one-half  interest from the: estate of the late  Archie Connor. Tom thinks it is a  likely wildcat.  Rev. James H. White, who was unable to be present as expected, two  weeks ago, will arrive in Phoenix today, and occupy the Methodist pulpit  tomorrow morning and evening. A  special meeting of the quarterly official  board will be held Monday, at which  Mr. White will preside. j  City Clerk Matheson has received acknowledgement of the resolutions recently passed by the city council re  custom house for this city, from Dun  can Ross and Martin Burrell, candidates for parliament from Yale-Cariboo, as well as from VV: A. Galliher,  our present M. P.  At last Sunday evening's meeting of  the Methodist church the congregation  voted almost unanimously on changing the place of worship. A special  committee, appointed to look into the  matter, has recommended an empty  store room in the Graves-Williams  block, Mr. W. Yolen Williams having  kindly granted the use of the room.  The first service will probably be held  there in a few weeks.  ORE TONNAGE  Boundary Mines Shipped 72,-  000 Tons.

During the latter part of this winter the government wagon roads in and  around Phoenix have been in the worst  condition known for years, owing to  the excess of snow and the continual  bad drifting. On one occasion the  Phoenix-Greenwood stage overturned  and eight passengers were dumped into the snow, including two women and  two children. The Grand Fork-  Phoenix-Greenwood stage has had the  hardest possible time in making connections, and has had mishaps several  times, though none seriously. A number of times loaded teams have overturned, and last Sunday three teams of  P. Burns & Co., with heavy loads of  beef on the way to Greenwood, were  upset just below the city.  Several times W. G. McMynn,  government agent at Greenwood, was  appealed to to have repairs made so  that traffic could be carried on over  these well traveled thoroughfares with)  some degree of safety, but that  official has so far done nothing whatever. A fewdaysago J,F. Royer, of the  Grand Forks stage line, interviewed  Mr. McMynn, saying that he would  have to discontinue if the roads were  not repaired. Even then nothing was  done. So Mr. Royer made a final appeal to G. A. Fraser, M. P. P. for  Grand Forks riding, and he in turn  wired to the government at Victorias  An answer promptly arrived that the  roads would be repaired at once. E.  Spragget, road superintendent for this  section, was sent to the scene of  trouble with some men, and the repairs are being made.  The Royer stage has several times  been forced to reach Phoenix from  Hartford Junction via the C. P. R.  tracks, a distance of two miles on account of the impassible state of the  wagon roads, but using the railway  track is not a desirable method, in  view of the heavy ore traffic constantly  going on from Phoenix.  :       St. Aadrewi Aeaaal Meetlaf.  Last Monday evening the annual  business meeting of St .Andrews Presbyterian church was held, there being  a good attendance of members and adherents. The board of managers  chosen for this year consists of I. Crawford, G. E. Dey, J. W. Hannum, J. S.  Boyce, D. Murray, A. S. Williamson  and Thomas Brown. The financial  report was read by the treasurer, which  showed that the total receipts from  January 1, 1903, to March 1, 1904,  were $1,316, with a balance of $10 on  hand. The ladies' aid afterwards  served light refreshments, and a number of songs and instrumental pieces  were rendered.  For the second full month in this  year the ore tonnage of the Boundary  mines, for an equal number of days,  fully comes up to the tonnage for January. ,,The total for each month, ie��  spectively, was 75,458 and 72,007���  but it must be taken into consideration  that February was the shortest month  in the year, two days shorter than  January. 1  In the table which is here given the  figures from the two largest properties  are furnished officially, while those of  the others are made up from the.weekly ore reports. The Granby mines  sent out more ore than all the other  mines in the Boundary put together,  and the record is being steadily maintained. The Mother Lode is keeping  up its quota of about 500 tons daily,  while the other smaller properties increase or decrease shipments according to the exigencies of' the various  smelting arrangements. Here are the  figures in detail for the first two months  of 1904:  Jan.

The annual convention of District  No. 6, Western Federation of Miners,  met in Miners' Union hall, Nelson,  Tuesday forenoon. P. R.

It is said that consumptives from all  parts of the continent report to Phoenix, Arizona, for cure, but that many  of them never get away from there. ' A  correspondent says that the day before  writing eight deaths occurred there  from consumption.' 'I here is another  way in Phoenix, British Columbia,  which1 is decidedly different from Phoe  nix, Arizona.  Contrary to the statements by the  opposition press, Premier McBnde expects to call a session of the legislative assembly for June or July, and the  particular business in hand is to consider assistance to new railways. The  government very properly did not propose to do this business in a haphazard manner, and will take sufficient  time to consider the subject on its  merits.  Edwin Jacobs, the correspondent,  who made his home in the Boundary  * for years, and is probably, the best informed man on the mines of this section, has received a, well deserved compliment by- being made secretary of  the Provincial Mining Association.  Mr. Jaiiobs is a conservative writer,  but may be depended on to do the  "fair thing in his writings, as he sees it.  , It would be difficult to have secured a  better than man for the position Mr.  Jacobs now occupies.  > There were undoubtedly a number  of disappointed candidates in both  parties after the political convention  that nominated Duncan Ross and  Martin Burrt.ll. It is worth while to  note what kind of a game they missed  being in. The constituency of Yale-  Cariboo is said to be about as large as  New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and  Prince -Edward Island put- together,  and larger than New Hampshire, Con  necticut, Vermont and Massachusetts  combined. It is understood than a  Socialist will yet be nominated in this  constituency. He should look before  he leaps.  Nelson has won the hockey  pionship of the Kootenays.

G MINING j  The police commissioners of many  of the incorporated cities of the province this year seem to be having their  troubles in one way or the other.  Grand Forks and Greenwood have led  the way In the,Boundary up to the  present, and now Phoenix is having its  turn. It is to be hoped that a/fairs  will now take a turn for the better, after the washing of considerable dirty  linen in public, and that there will be  no more trouble over the matter. It  is not easy to- see how the rising generation can be benefited by the airing  of such matters as usually come up in  connection with the duties of police  rommissioners.  ��� ta**.������������*a*a������**a����iie  i ST.RICTLY BUSINESS S  ����*e��������a����S9��a����>toso>**��  The genii of the cash drawer will always be advertisements��� embodied  with good business principles and perseverance.  The business of the bulk of advertising is to intensify and direct interest  in the things which people are already  interested in in a general way.  You will have a splendid ad if you  know how to talk. If you don't, get  some one to talk for you, but be sure  that you only employ just plain, everyday human talk.  A whole band wagon full of college-  bred theories can't compete with a  hard-headed business man with a stub  lead pencil and a sheet of wrapping  [>aper in getting up good ads.  The once-in-avvhile small buyer has  friends and his friends have friends.  By getting his f>ood will, you may  start an endless chain system that will  prove a strong ally to your newspaper  advertising.  Slocan ore shipments are dose to  3,000 tons.  Mining and smelting nien met last  week at Nelson for the purpose of discussing the silver lead industry.  At Coleman, Alberta, the International Coal & Coke Co. is evtractinj:  3,000 tons of cail per month  The Payne company is placing more-  powerful magnet; in their zinc separator to produce a finer quality of 71'nc.  The Giant, at Rossland is to be  sold by Chas. V. Jenkins, recently appointed provisional liquidator under  tne Winding Up Act.  W. B. Pool of the Oyster-Criterion  and Great Northern groups, in the  Lardeau, states that his properties will  add 50 stamps at once.  It is reported that bedrock has been  reached at a 6-foot depth on Bullion  creek near White Horse and that the  dirt runs $8 to the pan.  The Nickle Plate mine at Hedley  has spent over $1,000,000 in vtork of  great magnitude, but has never shipped a pound of ore, because there is  no railroad.  The Ontario & Slocan Lumber Co.  will supply 500,000 feet of lumber for  the new flume and concentrator of the  Monitor, to be built next spring at  Three Forks.  Osmiridium aud platinum have been  found in the alluvial gravels of the  Cariboo district. Special appliances  are being installed at the Horsefly to  extract these metals.  The Fern mine at Hall siding is to  resume operations at once. The tramway connecting the mine with the  stamp mill is now being cleaned ^.out,  preparatory to a resumption of milling.  European capitalists owning the  Monitor mine, at Three Forks, have  secured a site at Rosebery for their  proposed zinc enrichment works, and  building will be commenced in the  spring.  Henry White, of Spokane, one ol  the pathfinders of the Boundary and  now largely interested in Boundary  mines, has been working the Buffalo  group, in the Poplar section, under  bond the last two months.

John Wanamaker says : "If there is  one enterprise on earth that a .'quitter'  should leave severely alone it is advertising.    To make a  success of advertising, one must be prepared  to  stick  to it like a barnacle on  a boat's   bottom.'  He should know  it before he  begins it that he must spend money���  lots of it.    Somebody should tell him,  alscvthat he cannot hope to' reap results commensurate with   his  expenditures early in the game.   Advertising  doseri't Jerk;.' It pulls.

From the thirty-second annual report of the suprintendent of education  of the province, recently published by  the government, the following extracts  are made regarding the public schools  of the Boundary:  Grand Forks.���Inspected November 12th, 1902, and June lath, 1903;  1,65 pupils present.'

'  "I have been  troubled all my  life with catarrh  in my head. I  took Peruna for  about three  months, and  now think I am  permanently  cured; I believe  that for catarrh  in all its forms  Peruna is the  medicine of the  age.

The tendency of medical science is toward preventive measures. The betl  thought of the world is being given to  ftie subject. It is easier and belter to  prevent than to cure. It has been lully  demonstrated that pneumonia, one of  the most dangerous diseases that meili  cal men have to contend with, ��an be  prevented by the use of Chainbei Iain's  Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always re-  Eultbfrom a cold oran attack of influenza  ���giip, anil it has, been obscived that  this remedy counteiacts any tendency of  these diseases toward pneumonia. Tl-is  has been fully proven in many thousands of cases in which tliia teinedy  has been used during the great prevalence of colds and grip in r. cent years,  and can be relied upon with implicit  confidence. Pneumonia often results  from a Blight cold when no danger is ap  prdicnded until it is suddenly discovered  that tiieie is fever and difficulty in  breat'iing and pains in the chest, then  it is announced that the patient hae  pneiiionia.
