Array M  PHOENIX, .B.C., SATURDAY, MARCH CJ, 1912  A  See our Window  for  New Spring  Styles  in  Hats  Advertise B. C. Mining Industry  The following extract from a  treatise on provincial mining, by  Olphant Bell, appeared recently in  tbe Vancouver World:  "Some   people   argue   that   we  need some adventitious aid to assist  in advertising- the  resources of the  province and   instance the  effect of  the  discovery   of a  rich   gold   field  for example. This would undoubtedly  be a  drawing   card   of 'trie first  order, but it'may be dismissed from  practical consideration, as being unlikely to happen.    We have got to  recognise that there will be no royal  road to mining fortune in  B. C.     It  will   always   be   a  case  of  steady  plodding   and   the  exercise  of unlimited  patience  and  application of  much knowledge and money.  What  does   it   matter   if   the   growth   be  slow, so  long   as it   is  sure?    We  will never scoop  the bottom out of  B. C, as it has been scooped out of  many a rich and sensational mining  country  before  today.     Even  now  scientists are figuring on the longiv-  ity of tbe Rand in advance.    When  that famous field   is in   the discard;  B. C." will   still   have   resources lo  offer and   every year  now tends to  make their successful development  an  easier matter.     What this province  needs   before   anything  else,  from   a   mining   standpoint,   is   a  paternal government.    Only by taking a direct and practical interest in  the opening   up   and ^expanding   of  mining   country    can   the   natural  growth be'accelerated.      This may  be accomplished by building wagon  roads  and  trails, fostering  railroad  building and   co-operating with  tbe  miner in the  solution of his difficulties, whether metalurgtcal or physi  Hidden Creek Smelter  F. M. Sylvester, assistant general manager of the Granby Consolidated, who has now returned  from a trip of inspection of the  Hidden Creek mines at Anyox,  stated that the establishment of  smelter works by his company at  Observatory Inlet had been decided on, and that the work  would commence there shortly.  These works when completed, as  it is hoped within the next twelve  months, will find employment for  2,500 men.  Phoenix Conservatives Active  . Phoenix Conservatives are taking  no chances in the forthcoming provincial elections and are now actively preparing for the fight. On Tuesday evening a meeting of the executive of the Phoenix Conservative  association took place and the situation as it concerns Phoenix discussed in all its bearings. As a result of their, deliberations it was decided to call a meeting ofthe association which was held on Friday.  There was a large attendance and  considerable enthusiasm was shown.  A. S. Hood, who was elected president in the place; of W. X. McDonald, presided, and the delegates to  the convention in Grand Forks were  elected. The delegates have received no special instructions, but it  is an open secret that the splendid  services of Ernest Miller to this riding are to be recognized and the  Conser\ati\e nomination proferred  him.  MINING JOURNAL  The Ladies' Leap Year Dance  The ladies' Leap.Year dance on  Thursday of last week has been an  ever-recurring topic of conversation  ever since, while the manner in  which all the arrangements were  made together with the way they  were carried out, has received nothing but the highest praise from  those whose pleasure it was to be  present. The ladies responsible for  the affair have every reason to be  proud of their achivement, which  will certainly rank among the most  successful social functions ever  given in Phoenix. The dance was  unique in every way, mere man occupying a very back seat, the only  requirement demanded from that insignificant mortal was to . look  pleasant and make himself agree  able. Tbe married gentlemen accepted the part quite naturally,  while the majority of bachelors although somewhat nonplussed at the  commencement seemed ready to eat  out of the ladies'hand towards the  close.' The tables were-completely  turned and the ladies did all the  asking, a thing they were not slow  about either. Ice cream was served  in the gallery during the evening,  Mrs. Al. Hughes presiding over  that department, her excellent services in dispensing that delectable  dish receiving thoughtful recognition,^ the form of a present from  the committee. The floor was in  unusally fine condition and th'e  music, which was provided by the  Werner's orchestra of-Phoenix, surpassed.all former ��� efforts of that  organization.   Miss Nellie Webster,  EXTRAORDINARY  SURGICAL OPERATION  Dr. G. S.  Gordon, Formerly of  Phoenix, Wins Fame J in  Vancouver.  The following news item from the  Columns of a recent issue of the  Vancouver Sun will no doubt interest the many Phoenix friends of  Dr. Gordon who practiced in Phoenix some few years ago:  Brought out of the valley ofthe  shadow of death, once more a man  of buoyancy and spirit and again  feeling the thrills of unimpaired  health, Mr. Thomas D. Patterson,  a gentleman connected with the  British Columbia Permanent Loan  Loan company, probably owes his  continued life in this world to a  surgeon's skill.  The surgeon in this particular instance is Dr. G. S. Gordon of Vancouver,- whose name, even on account . of this one operation, will  probably be recorded in local surgery annals for all time. The operation was performed at the General  hospital, and those who were aware  of its success are still marvelling  over the outcome.  Mr. Patterson had for thirty  years suffered from the presence of  a stone in one of his kidneys. Many  steps were taken to have the obstacle removed, but jt remained for  Dr. Gordon to effectually give the  patient relief.  Asked his opinion regarding the  feat of Dr.   Gordon,  Dr. OUiver S.

Another Opportunity  taWmmmmssmmsmsmamWamm^tsMamsmsms^^  IS NOW OFFERED YOU TO GET IN  On the Ground Floor  Port Mann  The Pacific Terminus of the  Canadian Northern Railway.  It is safe to say that in a few years Port Mann will be one of  the biggest, if not the biggest grain shipping ports on tbe Pacific.  Already there has been secured for Port Mann, a Million Dollar  Flour Mill, Glass Works, Steel Mill, Wood Working Plant, Carriage Plant nnd Grain Elevator. Several other milling and wheat-  buying firms are in treaty for sites there.  The Canada Car Works, a twenty-five million dollar Montreal  concern have taken a site near Railway Addition, and it is expected that these works alone will ultimately employ 5,000 men.  These are only a few of tbe many industries that :ire coming  to Port Mann. There is everything lo indicate that Port Mann  will be one of the busiest and most progressive cities on tbe  Pacific coast.  Does it not look reasonable that an Investment in Port  Mann is safe, and that money will be made easiiy and  quickly? The time to buy is right now; there is no  money made buy lug: when a boom is at its height.  I am selling Lots today in Railway Addition  for $250 each; $15 down, and $10 per  Month, no interest, no taxes.  Vou bad better secure one or more of these lots immediately,  as it is expected that there will be a sharp advance in the price  of these lots in the near future.  1  with the   hinterland.

Mr. Sprag-  gett stated that there is no mistaking the zeal and energy ofthe Hon.  Thos. Taylor, Minister of Works,  for it was chiefly owing to that  minister's activities that such large  appropriations for roads and trails  had been included in the government's scheme^of progress. In the  matter of the new highway between  Phoenix and Grand Forks, Mr.  Spraggett said that the work on  that undertaking would be commenced as soon as the weather  permitted. The road is to be  constructed on grade, making it  especially convenient for auto vehicles.  METHODIST ENTERTAINMENT  P.O. BOX  SELLING AGENT FOR THIS DISTRICT  Tlie services of local talent are  again about to be requisitioned.  This time il is the Methodist church  that is to be benefited, and with that  purpose in view a committee have  been at work perfecting the necessary details of a concert which is to  be  given   in    the    opera  house   on  Thursday, March 14th. Tlie Phoenix City band has also volunteered  its services and are preparing a few  selections for that evening. Tbe  following is the program for the entertainment, which already gives  promise of being ,-i success both  socially and financially:  'at home" which took place in  their lodgeroom on Wednesday last.  The Rebekah hospitality was in evidence on all sides and no pains were  spared in providing for the comfort  and enjoyment of their guests.  Dancing was in full swing by 9.30,  and held undisputed sway until  near midnight, when supper was  served. Professor Werner, who by  the way, is acquiring a name for  himself in the musical world of  Grand Forks, was present at tbe  piano, and gave the usual satisfaction. The affair was thoroughly  enjoyed throughout, many complimentary remarks on the condition  of tbe fioor'being beard. The light  fantastic was tripped until after one  o'clock.

The Political Outlook  The Legislature has . been dissolved and the new election will be  held on the 28th of March, says the  Victoria Colonist*' As this announcement has been expected ever since  the beginning- of the year, it will  occasion no surprise.  The House which has just gone  out of existence has sat three times.  It had the right to a fourth session,  but in view of the extensive program which has been proposed by  the government and received Icgisla-  ^���^ITT !��� .*^^"^SBI  passed during the session. With  the usual ceremonies, concluding  with all members joining in singing  tbe National anthem, the house prorogued.  Pioneer Corrected  We are indebted to E. E. Jabobs,  secretary of theI-..western branch of  the Canadian Mining In'stitue, for a  communication  pointing- out an inaccuracy in an article on tbe decline  of mining- in  B.C., which appeared  in a recent issue of the Pioneer.  Mr.  Jacobs emphatically  statiis that the  Provincial mineralogist did not say  that there was  a marked decline in  provincial   mining,   but   what that  gentleman   did state was that " the  curtailment of output is clearly attributable, for  the most part, if not  entirely, to the   effects of the,Strike  of   coal    mine   employees    in    the  Crow's  Nest districts."    We  however, still   adhere to our contention  that the mining industry of the province does  not appear to make the  advance   that   it  should,   especially  when Iheenormous natural resources  of  the   country  are taken   into  :rc-  nccount.

The practice of  having more frequent dissolutions  than the law calls for is rapidly  gaining- favor' in the United Kingdom as well as in Canada.  The previous election was held  after the announcement of an extensive policy of railroad construction,  and the plan then outlined by the  government received a very remarkable endorsement. That policy was  carried forward through its first  stage at the session following the  election. It was advanced to the  second stage, during the session  which has just closed, and it is very  proper that the electorate shall have  the opportunity of expressing their  approval or disapproval as they may  see fit, at the earliest possible date.  Their discussion cannot fail to have  a very important influence upon the  not a  desirable  immigrant,   and  in  view ofthe  class  of Hindus now in  Canada there was no chance of their  women   coming here   to make their  home.    Conditions  were   less   suitable here   every  year,  and   at least  300 left British Columbia last year.

After passing 62 bills, some of  which must have important bearing  on the history of British Columbia  within the next two years, the third  session of the Twelfh Parliament of  the province was formally prorogued  on Wednesday of last week. In  the corridors while waiting for the  lieutenant-governor to come down,  the members chatted sociably, the  principal theme being the coming  election and its probable outcome.  The general impression seemed to  be that an almost unanimous house  would assemble at the next session  of the provincial parliament, and  nearly all the members expressed  their convictions that they would be  in their places when the house reassembled. Jas. Hawthornthwaite,  the socialist member for Nanaimo,  had some doubts as to whether he  would run again, though he said he  had many requests to do so. He  had no personal desire to remain in  politics as his private business demanded all his time and attention.  Prorogation took place before  galleries crowded with spectators.  The business of the house was concluded by three p.m., after which  Lieut.-Governor Patterson arrived  and  assented to 58 of the 62 bills  Mr. J. E. Arsenault, ��. Justice of  the Peace, and station master at  Wellington, on the Prince Edward  Island Railway, says:  " Four years ago I slipped In the  station and fell on a freight truck,  sustaining a bad cut on the trojit of  my leg. ).l thought this would heal.  but instead of doing so It developed  into a bad ulcer, and later Into a form  of eczema which spread very rapidly  and also started on the other leg.  Both legs became so swollen and sore  that I could only go about my work  by having them bandaged. My doctor  said I must stop work and lay up.'  "After six months of this trouble  I consulted another doctor, but with  no better result. I tried all the salves,  liniments and lotions I heard ot, but  Instead of getting better I got worse.  " This was my condition when I got  my first box of Zam-Buk. Greatly to  my delight that first box gave me relief. I continued to apply It to the  sores, and day by day. they got better.  I could see that at last I had got hold  of something which would cure me,  and In the end it did. -  - "It is now over a year since Zam-  Buk worked-a cure In my case, and  there has been no return of the  eczema."  Such is the nature of the great cures  which Zam-Buk is daily effecting.  Purely herbal 1n composition, this  great balm ia a sure cure for all skin  diseases, cold sores, chapped hands,  frost bite, ulcers, blood-poisoning, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores, ringworm, inflated patches, cuts, -burns and  bruises. All druggists and stores sell  at 50c. box, or post free from Zam-Buk  Co., upon receipt of price.  mmmm  The old diggings in the Fraser  river near Yale are to be worked  under modern methods, according  to Dr. Mosely, who is to construct  tor the Hills Bar Gold Dredging  Co. a caisson dredge similar to  those installed two years ago on the  Nome beach, and which have  proved so big a success. Five miles  of leases have been secured, extending from opposite the first Canadian  Pacific railway tunnel above Yale to  Emery bar.  . The Vancouver chief of police is  looking around for a couple of fine  strong young women for the police  force.    .  The celestials'fled for the passages  in the building, but 29 were eventually secured.  The Chinaman's queue���emblematic of his servitude to the Manchns  and the source of much mischievous  pleasure to the yonth of the land���  is practically a thing ofthe past. In  Chilliwack, however, most of the  Chinks are wearing their hair much  after the style of women, in loose  coils and puffs.  The C.N.R. tunnel at Ashcroft is  almost completed. The tunnel is  eight hundred feet ling and was  commenced last August. The entire length has been bored through  solid rock of the hardest igneous  nature, the layers of which run  longitudinally. Two gangs of men  were employed working from either  end.  The possibility of transferring  some of the white fishermen of the  coasts of Labrador to British Columbia and setting them off as a  check against the Japanese engaged  in the fishing industry*; brought Dr.  Grenfell to this province to talk the  matter over with experienced marine  men and particularly Newfoundlanders resident on the coast. The  doctor addressed the Canadian club  at Victoria on the subject. The  scheme is strongly opposed by lhe  Newfoundland government.  Henry Stiller pleaded guilty at  Vancouver, a few days ago, to  three charges of theft in the Church  of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary,  and was sentenced to two years in  the penetentiary. Stiller was captured as a result of a priest's ingenuity. The poor box in the church  having- been broken into several  times, an electrical appliance was  connected with it and a bell in the  reverend gentleman's residence. On  the night of the robbery the bell  rang and the, priest notified the  police who hurried to the church  and arrested the thief before he had  time to leave the church.  all over  ttto -woria.  :TtB sxrtlcl6a-(vr6 'carefully nalcctfiil una  policy.

The Polmatier Sisters
"The Polmatier Sisters" company is composed of five artistes.
Miss Len Seba not only directs the
orchestra with a style and grace
that would make many of the male
directors sit up and take-notice, but
is also, a violin and mandolin artist
of rare ability, besides being the
possessor of a voice which she uses
effectively in trios and chorus work;
her up to date readings with special
costumes never, fail to hold her
audiences spell bound. Miss Helene
E.— is a cornetist of great skill,
arid it is a matter for doubt if another lady could be found to equal
her on that instrument. She also is
a player on the violin and piano and
has a fine soprano voice. Miss Ira
K.— is an accomplished entertainer,
her specialties being the drums and
traps, bells, xylophone, mandolin,
flute and piano; she also is a soprano
of merit. Miss Helen Burnetii who
is the soprano soloist of the company, possesses a sweet and brilliant
voice, which with her repertoire of
select songs never fails to secure the
hearty applause of her audience;
the piano and guitar are included in
her accomplishments. D. and O.,
the brother, is an exceptionally fine
pianist, who with his rich baritone
voice in chorus and solo work has
charmed many audiences in the east
and west. It would be a task to
find another company of five that
could render the varied program
that these talented sisters can produce for an evening's entertainment.
The Polmatier Sisters will appear at
the opera house on Saturday, March
22, under the auspices of Phoenix
Hockey club.
