BREEN  IS CONFIDENT  Says'Copper Price Helps the  Boundary.  Granby in High Favor in New  York.  �����$M#S4^��$$M*$$^3��A����&e  James Brcen, formerly manager of  the Dominion Copper Co. until that  company disposed of its Brooklyn  group'to the Montreal & Boston Consolidated, recently wenc to New York  with Mayor Rumberger of Phoenix,  Mr. Breen does not talk much for  publication, in fact when he sees a reporter heaving in sight, he generally  turns the first comer, and gives the  curions scribe the slip if possible. In  Spokane last Monday a reporter cornered him, and, as is usually the case,  he said something worth hearing.  This is the way he is reported:  "The recent failure of Munroe &  Munroe as a result of their speculations  in Montreal & Boston stock, has not  hurt that company. Munroe & Munroe were merely trying to unload stock  on the public at $3.50 a share that was  only worth $1. When their scheme  was nipped, the men of money in the  Montreal & Boston flotation came forward to save the day. Payments for  the properties are being made. The  newspapers which gave so much space  to the failure were interested, not in  Munroe & Munroe, but in the expose  that the vice president of the City  National bank���a Rockefeller institution���was helping Wall street plungers. The most that the City bank  loaned them at one time was $60,000,  which is a drop in the bucket for such  a big institution, but the papers took it  up because it gave a chance to dig the  City bank.  "Boundary copper properties should  be doing well at the present prices of  copper. If the mines could make expenses when copper was 11 cents���  and I notice that they kept running  then���those same properties should be  making a clean profit of 4. cents a  pound more, with copper at 15 cents.  "Granby is in high favor in New  York. The easterners who put their  money in that concern are well  pleased."  MAVIS BONDED  FOR $15,000.00  Phoenix Syndicate Takes Skylark Camp Claim.  This week an Jther Phoenix syndicate  took a bond mi a properly in the high  grade belt near Greenwood, and will  shortly undertake the active development of the same.  E. T. Wickwire, ' of Greenwood,  bonded for the sum of $15,000 the  Mavis mineral claim in Skylark camp.  The local syndicate taking hold consists of D. B. Morkill, J. A. Hanna,  Jos. J. Strutzei, C. MV Campbell, W.  X.McDonald and George L. McNichol  --all employees of the Granby Co.  here.  The Mavis is one of mose claims  that is in the best of' company, being  located adjoining the Bay claim, from  which such larg^ values in gola ore  have been obtained, and on which  machinery is now being placed for  more extensive development. A fifty  foot shaft has been sunk on the Mavis,  and it is believed by those familiar  with the locality that the Bay lead iuns  through the Mavis. In another week  or two a force of men will be set at  work on the' Mavis on development.  ORGANIZING  THEL0.G;!.  Templars. Lodge in  Phoenix  and Greenwood.  Boundary Mining Notes  Order Now Has Over 750,000  Members.  -4 **-******-�� .**-**  LOCAL JOTTINGS  ***�������������������������������������������������'  ����*������������������*-���+  Descriptions and prices of Mason  & Risch pianos can be had from  Mortimer, the agent.  Have you a shipment .that wants  clearing through the customs? If so,  get Mortimer,the broker,to attend to it.  Jack Northey, who was at one time  forerhan at the Jewel mine, in Long  Lake camp, lecently died at Vancouver.  E. H. Mortjmer has made arrangements to look after the customs brokerage as soon as the office is open  here.  John McGill sustained painful but  not serious burns at the Granby smelter last week by stepping into ,a slag  pot filled with molten slag.  Early this week the large tipple at  the Coal Creek mine, near Fernie, was  burned down, entailing a loss]of $150,-  000, and throwing several hundred  miners out of employment temporarily.  We have to thank our old friend Jas.  Dewar,, of Phoenix, for a copy of the  Pioneer issued in that town. The  number is profusely illustrated and  does great creait to western journalism.  ���Alexandria (Ont.) News..  Any one coming into or going from  Phoenix over the' Great Northern can  be said to be going to the other side  of Jordan. That is the name of the  first siding out of Phoenix, and was  named after John Jordan, the contractor, rather than after the river in  Palestine.  For the second time Frank- Taylor  has been found guilty at Colville,  Wash., of killing B. A. Mclntyrc at  Bossburg during a saloon quarrel.  Mclntyre was well known in the sevs  eral towns of the Boundary, having  resided in Phoenix for several months  four )\ars ago.  Monday, April 24, is the date selected by the Catholic Ladies' Aid for  the Easter Monday ball, to be given at  Miners' Union hall, and for which  tickets are now on sale. The ladies  are working hard to make this an even  greater success than the last one, and  that would be saying not a little.  - Four Cars Derailed.  Monday afternoon four "battleships," as the heavy steel Great Nor  them ore cars are known in railway  parlance, were derailed ' about three  miles from Phoenix, and as yet the exact cause of the accident is not known  One of the cars was turned upside  down, the train being loaded and consisting of 17 dumps of Granby ore.  Traffic was suspended for the day, and  the wrecking crew from Northport, 85  miles distant, worked a'.i night to clear  it away. No passenger train came in  till the regular-hour on Tuesday. No  one was hurt in the derailment.  HONORS DONE  BY SPOKANE  To  J 36 Excursionists From  Boundary.  To Celebrate Opening of Gt.  Northern to Phoenix.  As far as heard from, Thursday's  Great Northern excursion from Phoenix to Spokane, to celebrate the opening of the extension of that railway to  Phoenix, was an unqualified success.  Plenty of comfortable coaches were  supplied, and 136 excursion tickets  were sold in Phoenix and Grand Forks,  86 of which were sold in Phoenix. Of  these, Royer's stage line and special  teams brought 30 or 40 from Greenwood, and four came 32 miles from  Chesaw, Wash.  The night before the excursion the  secretary of the Board of Trade received a telegram from Secretary L.  G. Munroe of the Spokane Chamber  of Commerce, that a committee from  the chamber would meet the excursion  at Hillyard, six miles out of Spokane.  This committee consisted of W. E.  Goodspeed, L. G. Munroe, H.G. West  and H. R. Mann, and provided the excursionists with badges.  The committee on reception, which  included every member of the chamber  met the guests at the depot, and yes  terday gave them a lunch at the Silver  Grill wh.re the silvertongued orators  were doubtless heard, after being welcomed by Mayor Boyd and others.  After lunch a trip around the city under the auspices of th; chamber was on  the programme, and today a trip up  to..Lake Coeur d'Alene is on the bill  of fare.  There can be no doubt but that the  excursionists will have had a most  enjoyable trip by the time most of  them reach home, tomorrow evening.  Among those who were noticed as  going on the excursion were:  Mrs. O. B. Smith, Jr., Mrs. R. B.  Boucher, Mrs J. L. Martin and daughter Marjorie, Mrs. W. J. Porter, Mrs.  John Miller, Mrs. J. H. Hudson, Mrs.  Joe Gation, Mrs. L. V. Birnie, Mrs.  W. J. Cramer, Mrs. Parks, Miss Smith,  O. B. Smith, Jr., L. Y. Birnie, J. H.  Graham, and daughter, John Graham,  J. L. Martin, F. W. Hart, N. Palorcia,  W. R. Williams, R. Horrell, W.. J.  Porter, Geo. Evans, John Lewis, W. S  Macy, and others.  Jonas Bushell, of Seattle, organizer  for the Independent Order of Good  Templars for this province, wound up  his several days work in Phoenix last  week .Friday by organizing a branch of  the"order here, with a membership of  26, with the following as the first list  of officers:  Chief Templar, X>.G. Stafford.  Vire Templar, Mrs. F. Knott.  Chaplain, Rev. D. Al. Perley. -  Secietary, J. W, Reed.  Treasurer Miss Ida Hill.  Lodge Deputy, J. D. Boyes.  Supt. Juvenile Templars, Airs. Silas  Smith.  ��� Guard," Miss Dalglish.  Marshall, Oscar Lindberg.  Past Chief Templar, Wm. Searle.  The lodge intends to meet weekly,  and is now arranging to secure the use  of a hall for the purpose, the organization having taken place in the  Methodist church.  Saturday Air.Bushell went to Greenwood, and Monday night the Greenwood lodge was instituted with a  membership of 32 and the subjoined  list of officials for the first term:  Chief Templar, Thomas Rowe.  Vice Templar, Mrs. ]. W. Parker.  Chaplain. A. H. Clark.  Secretary, L.J. Cramer.  Lodge Deputy, Airs. Minnie E.  Green.  ���  Supt. Juvenile Templars, Airs. Thos.  Rowe.  Guard, Airs. B. F. Petch.  Marshall, Earl Parker.  Past Chief Templar, Frank Steele.  Mr. Bushell also visited Grand  Forks on Tuesday, with the intention  of organizing there, but was called  back to Seattle by illness of his wife.  The Independent Order of Good  Templars, the object of which is temperance as well as sociability, was organized at Utica, New York, 111 July  1852. The order now has over 750,-  000 members, with lodges in almost  every country on the face of the earth.  The largest number in any one country  is in Sweden, where there are over  100,000 Good Templars. The greatest progress of late has been in Germany.:   ;   _ '���,-..'  In British Columbia, the .lodge has  made no small amount of progress  since January of this year. In less  than three months, 12 new lodges have  been organized by Air. Bushell, with  401 members, making a total now of  21 lodges and 684 members. The  grand chief. templar ot British Columbia is John N. Evans, AL P. P., Of  Duncans, B. C, and the grand sec  retaryis A.J. Bell, of Somenos.  A deal is on for more prominent  properties in this camp.  Considerable ore at a number of  Boundary high grade properties will be  sent out as soon as the wagon roads  permit.  ;\, A 25 h. p. boiler and pump are being installed at the Bay mine, for the  purpose of continuing the sinking of  the shaft.  This week Boundary's mines shio-  ped over 20,000 tons and Boundary's  three smellers again treated over 20,-  000 tons of ore.  BOARD TRADE  REORGANIZED  Useful Organization is Much  Alive.  ANNUAL REPORT OF  ST. ANDREWS CHURCH  Figures Given for   the   Past  Year in Pulpit.  Last Sunday evening, Rev. E. W. C.  MacColl, pastor of St. Andrews church,  came some details of the work of the  church for the past year, which were  of more than general interest to members and attendants. During the year  to Alarch 1, 1903, the total receipts, as  icported by the treasurer, Isaac Crawford, were $977.25, ail of which was  expended, "except $4.25 on hand. The  liabilities of the church are $2,137.55,  which includes a total of two mortgages on the church and manse  amounting to $1,575, and a note at  bank, carried forward forward from  previous year, amounting to $360. The  assets of the Church are estimated at  $6,35��-  During the year the efficient Ladies'  Aid took in $412.33; all of which was  used in the work of the church except  $20 on hand. This report was submitted by Mrs. J. A. Alorrin, treasurer.  The Sunday School collections were  $71.80.  Latest Prices in Metals.  Nkw York���Copper, electrolytic, $15.-  37(g'*15 50;'ln.k(��, $15.25�� 15.50  Bar Sliver, 58^ .  Lead, $4.46 at $4.00.  It is understood that the Betts and  Hesperus mines, about three miles  from Phoenix, will begin to ship some  ore in the course of six or seven weeks.  Returns of $36.80 per ton were received by the Skylark Development  Co., from the shipment of a car of  third-class ore sent to the Granby smelter last week. The first-clnss ore sent  to Nelson smelter, gave $132 per ton.  . J. H. Wells, of Chicago, who left  Greenwood for his Illinois home last  week, after inspecting the big low  grade and important high grade mines  of the Boundary, will probably become  interested in this section, as a result of  his investigations.  This week the hoist used at the No.  4 Granby tunnel during the driving of  that bore, was taken apart, and is now  being repaired at the Granby machine  shops. It will be used on the hill in  connection with taking ore to the No.  1 crusher, according to the plans of  Supt. Hodges.  Supt. Hodges visited the Winnipeg  mine this week, and found the water  out down to the 200 foot level. It  will probably, require another week to  complete the unwatering, when the  mine will be thoroughly sampled and  examined. Foreman Rogers now has  about eight men at work there.  Frank Coryell secured the contract  for supplying 800,000 brick for the improvements at the Granby smeller, and  Geo.. S Hill secured the work of- laying the same. Hardy Bros will supply aoout 150 tons of lime. About  400 barrels of cement will be used in  the foundations, giving employment to  a dozen masons.  Officers for the newly formed Boun-  dary-Elkhorn Mining Co. have been  chosen as subjoined: President, Phil  McDonald; vice-president and manager, Jas. Sutherland; secretary-treasurer, W. G. Gaunce. The first two and  T. Hardy, Dr. Spankie and I.'. V. Fuller are directors. It was decided to  market 50,000 shares at 50 cents to  provide for installing machinery.  I. Crawford, President,  Mortimer, Sec.  E H.  1 CUSTOM HOUSE SOON  Wednesday evening at a well attended meeting of the business men of  the cily, held at the most central point,  the Pioneer building, the Phoenix  Board of Trade was reorganized with  no little enthusiasm. |. L. .Martin was  chosen chairman in the absence of the  old president, G. W. Ruinberger, and  W. B. Willcox acted as secretary. The  special committee on membership reported 38 names on the list and more  to come.  On the election of officers, the result was as follows: President, Isaac  Crawford; vice-president, R. B.Boucher; secretary treasurer, Ed. H. Mortimer. Air. Willcox was snggested as  secretary, but he did not wish to monopolize all the good things, especially after five years' service, and he retired in favor of Air. Mortimer, who  was unanimously elected. The council of eight was elected by ballot, consisting of A. B. HoOvl, J, A. Atorrin,  O. B. Smith, Jr., Wm. Delahay, C. D.  Hunter, G. W. Rnmberger, J. L. Martin and W. B. Willcox.  Letters were read by the secretary  from Senator Bostock, Hon, Minister  of Customs and Duncan Ross, AL P.,  acknowledging receipt of resolutions  re custom house for Phoenix: also a  second letter from Mr. Ross stating  that thepetition.had been granted, aud  that William Delahay had been appointed customs officer.  On motion, the dues for members  were fixed at $1 per quarter and the  membership fee at $1.  A motion prevailed appointing a  committee, consisting of J. L. Alartin,  O. B. Smith, Jr., L. Y. Birnie and  F. W. Hart, to meet a committee of  the Spokane Chamber of Commerce  on the Great Northern excursion from  Phoenix to Spokane on the Alarch 16.  The committee was given power to  add to its numbers.  Adjournment was taksn to Wednesday, Alarch 29th, when it is the intention to consider by-laws and a number  of impoitant resolutions.  Mr. Delahay Sworn in��-May Do  Business Next Week.  Wm. Delahay, who   was rec-  I ently appointed collector of cus.  toms !or the new sub-port of  Phoenix, went to Grand' Forks  Thursday and met Inspector  Clute of New Westminster, and  was officially sworn in.  Air. Delahay will visit Grand  Forks again Monday, and expects that the customs office will  be open here by the middle or  end of next week.    The neces-  [ sary books, papers and documents for the office were  receiv-  \ ed  this  week  by  Air.  Delahay  from.the department at Ottawa.    <���>      The editor would like to look at your  g&S��S������<s^^ yo��r subscription is due.  Typos Elect Officers.

It is generally acknowledged  that the public school system of this  province is good, but at the same time  it has directly'cost the people less than  in any other province of the Dominion. Here are the figures of comparative cost:   ��� . '  Scholastic Eyeopener.���The fact  that in British Columbia the government has hitherto provided nearly 80  per cent, of the funds required foi  education, while in the majority of the  other provinces less than 20 per cent,  comes from the provincial treasury,' is  in itself an eyeopener.���Kamloops  Standard,  Percent.      ��� Prr Cent,  borne hy Gov't borne I,y people  Ontario......... 8.83  Quebec 10.83  Nova Scotia 28.09  New Brunswick .30.59  P.

Can it be  possible that the Laurier government  has a grudge against Mr. Mclnnis, and  wishes to get him well out of the way  in the fastnesses of the icy north?  Our delightful orange belt weather  tried to get away last Saturday  and Sunday, but the attempt di J not  pro*e very successful. More that one  person in Boundary's chief mining  camp has already started gardening.  "Solid Seven"���It has long been  known that the number 7 was a favored  one in the scriptures. In seven days  the earth was created; there were seven  wise and seven foolish virgins; the  tradition is kept up today by seven  Liberals at Ottawa from British Columbia and their lamps seem to have gone  out. How about that lumber proteo  tion?���Nelson Tribune.  Sir Wilfred Laurier has been having  everything but a bed of roses at  Ottawa of late, with the autonomy bill.  There are even well authenticated rum-  orsthat thereare other and more serious  differences between the premier and  members of his cabinet.  PROVINCIAL.  If report be correct, inside of sixty  days there will be a decided impetus  given to the affairs of the Montreal &  Boston Consolidated, which is already  doing good work in mining and smelting in the Boundary. The adven' of  the Guggenheim Exploration syndicate  in this company will evidently be  favorably  feK  With the coining of the robins there  are indications that we shall also have  therai'way graders' merry clatter in  the Boundary once again.

A telephone system is to be installed  at Vernon by the Okanagan Telephone Co.  The C.P.R. is giving the Shustvap  & Okanagan branch a daily train service once more.  The annual meeting of the teachers'  institute will be held at Revelstoke on  April 25-26.  About 300 men are to be employed  this summer in improving the Nakusp  & Slocan railway.  'I he Similkameen division of Yale  district has been established as a separate land recording division.  Revelstoke proposes to improve its  electric lighting system at an expense  of $15,000 for which debentures wul  be issued.  be seen,  that while in all other provinces of the  Dominion the average proportion of  the co��-t of education borne by the  people in direct taxation;"is 72.43 per  cent., in British Columbia it is only  21.60 per cent. In view of this fact  it must be readily recognized that the  British Columbia government ��� is only  following the example of the other provinces, when it seeks to make the people more directly interested and responsible for the upkeep of the  schools.  vm  It is said that a Victoria man, who  must have borrowed a leaf from the  Yankees, is preparing to build a factory to utilize for commercial products  the carcasses of whales, every portion  of the leviathans to be turned to ac  count. Now", if that man had coiivj  from the mining distrcts, and intend  ed to utilize discarded wildcats, he  would have little or no trouble in se  curing a goodly.supply.  So far this year Slocan mines have  paid $100,030 in divid.-nds.  Both furnaces at the Marysville-  smelter are to be in operation next  month.  Rossland mines sent out 7,200 tons  of ore last week, making 68,156 tons  for the year.        ,  The work of installing the machinery  at the Rosebery zinc works began last  week. Charles Culvei has charge of  the work. . ,- '  A dividend of two per cent, amount  ing to $64,040 was paid by the St.  Eugene mine on the 14th inst. This  brings the total amount paid to St.  Eugene shareholders, up to$338,o8o.  A force of men are now at work  clearing the site and getting out rock  for the foundation of the zicc smelter  at Frank. Nearly a year will be required for the completion of the smelter.  . The Sullivan mine at Marysville during February brought down 800 tons  of ore from the mine to the smelter,  The ore is being Brought down at the  rate of four cars daily. It is estimated  when the smelter'" is running it will  earn $100,000 a .year from the lead  bounty.  Phoenix Livery Stable  William Matheson, Prop.

After you get angry and   make   up  your mind to "stop"   your   paper   to  make the editor feel  humiliated, just  poke your finger in water and look for  the hole.   Tl e yon will know how sadly you   are   missed.   The   man who  thinks a paper cannot survive without  his support, ought to go off and stay  awhile.   When he comes back he finds  1 hat half his friends did not know that  he was gone; the world at large hadn't,  kept any account of  hi-;   movements  whatsoever.    Vou will find things you  cannot endorse in every paper.    Even  the bille is rather p'ain and hits some  hard licks.    If you were to get  mad  and burn your bible, the hundreds of  presses would go on printing themjand  if you were to, slop your paper and call  the editor all sorts of ugly names, the  paper would still be, published.   And  what is more you will.look around and  secure a copy of it  every   week   from  jour   neighber.

Pneumonia is too dangerous a  disease for anyone to attempt  to doctor  himself, although he may have the proper remedies at hand. A physicianshould  always he called.   Itshould beborne in  mind,    however,,     that    pneumonia  always results from ?. cold or from  an  attack of the grip, and by the proper  treatment of these diseases a threatened  attack of pneumonia may  be  warded  off.    There is no  question  whatever  about this as during the thirty years or  more that Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has been used; we have yet to learn  of a single case of a cold or attack of  the grip having resulted in pneumonia  when this remedy was used.    It is also  used by physicians in the treatment of  pneumonia with the best results.    Dr.  W.-J.

Lawson, in his "Frenzied  Finance," regarding investment's in  copper mines, says:  "In the commercial world copper  occupies an impregnable position. To  compete, it is first necessary, to find a  copper deposit; then to lock up a vast  sum of money for a long test of years  before returns be^in to accrue. And  new copper deposits are as rare and  few and far between ^as Lincolns and  Roosevelts in politics or Grants and  Lees in war.  "In the last eight years, or since the  metal has been prominently before the  world of capital, but two great producers of copper have been created���  the Copper Range at I^ake Superior,  Michigan, and the" Greene Consolidated in Mexico���and these two mines  have only, at the end of six years, after an immense expenditure of millions  (Copper Range, with a capital of $38,-  500,000, 385,000 shares,' par $100,  which sold in the open market a few-  years ago at $6, now selling at $75;  and Greene Consolidated, with a capital of $8,650,000, 865,000 shares, par  $10, now selling in the open market  at 25,) reached the point of profitable  production. Their combined output,  while reaching the (for young mines)  unprecedented amoun of o:ie hundred odd million pounds of metal per  annum, constitutes but a fraction of  that which Mother Earth has given up  during the petiod of their development  namely, 2,500,000,000 pounds, all of  which has been disposed of arid cannot  again be used to satisfy a ravenous  consumption.}  "It seems to me, then, a curious  anomaly that, while capital was chasing  investments which promised but 4 per  cent, it eschewed copper which yield  ed 16 to 25 per cent, and my investigation! told me that a producing copper mine is the surest business venture  a man engages in, for, by the time ii  begins to produce profitably, it must  be so far developed that its owners art-  certain of ore to work on for decadt>  ahead.  "A good copper mine is really as afe-  deposit vault of stored up dividends,  which ennot be stolen nor destroyed  by fire, flood or famine, Calumet &  Hecla, for instance, though it cost its  first owners but a dollar a share, has  paid out $87,000,000, or $870 per  share or 3,480 per cent, on its par  value of $25, and while it has been  paying dividends over 35 years, it paid  last yeor $40 per share and has more  in sight than it has yet paid. And  Copper Range, though but six years  old, will be producing soon as much  as Calumet & Hecla, and has in sight  now ore to keep  it going   50  or 60  years."   What Is Dvspepjla?  Qualms, nausea, longing for food  yet dreading to eat. You may have  the real thine, but Ferrozone will cure  you like it did S. U. Huntingdon of  Hamilton, who says: "I was frequently  attacked with sucli acute dyspepsia  that I thought it might be heart disease. I used Ferrozone and got relief.

The fact that some business men do  suco.ed without using printer's ink is  no argument against its use for other  businesses.

Harold Nclsoi At "Rldhellea" With a New and  _    Elaborate Production. j  "Harold  Nelson - was a scholarly j  'Hamlet,'   he was  Superb   as  'Paul]  Kauvar,' but in 'Richlieu,' his favor- j  ite character, he closely attains to great-1  nes."   This was   what   a ���Winnipeg  critic wrote after  witnessing Mr. Nelson's splendid   production of "Richelieu," which  is to  be seen  here on  Wednesday, March 29th.    Mr. Nelson  has made almost a life lom;  study of  the  character of .-"Richeljen," and his  convincing   portrayal . of  the   clsver;  crafty Cardinal reveals the student as  well as the actor.    It is a drama telliny  a story of absorbing ��� interest,  indeed  develops in strength as the plot unfolds  until  a powerful climax is. reached.  Mr. Ncl on has never befo re  played  "Richelieu" under the same favorable  circumstances as this  season,   for his  manager, Mr. C. P   Walker,   has  furnished him with a  scenic production!  of   metropolitan   completeness.   The I  costuming is both elaborate and  his- [  torically accurate,    indeed  no detail  has been overlooked.    Those who go  to see Mr. Nelson and his well balanced  company in   "Richelieu" may confidently anticipate an  excellent performance. ='  ami Ms conumwy in nn'elaborate revival  of itulwer'i.vttuii'ii iitmoiis classic  ���   :   Mr. Nelson's uraitfst character  .
