Messrs. ,Michael McBean & Co.,  purchasers, af the stock of The Wm.  Hunter Co. Ltd., will have one of the  most complete dry goods stores in the  Boundary district.

The grpund floor will be used ex  clusively for men's furnishing, clothing,  boots and shoes; while the second  story will be devoted entirely to ladies'  dry goods, millinery and- dressmaking  department. -  Mr. McBean has secured the services of a leading eastern milliner���rone Who is acquainted with the New-  York, Montreal and Toronto styles,  and ladies may depend on having the  very latest, and ��� finest goods in the  market. ..Mr.. McBean, who is a  thorough dry goods man, will spare no  pains to make his establishment one  of the most confortable in the interior.  Don't forget the Absent Minded  Beggar entertainment, at the Miners'  Union Hall next Thursday.  Captain J. W. Troup, superintend-  ent of the Kootenay and Yale steamer  and rail lines of the Cj P. R., accompanied by J. L. Lawrence, train master on the C. &. W.'at!Trail, and H.  L. Johnson, roadmasfer of the same  branch, arrived in Phoenix Tuesday  night, and were callers at the Pioneer  office. They came up(from Eholt to  the end of the track on a tour of inspection, and on the way visited the  B. C. mine, to which if)oint the C.P.R.  is now operating the Itjjie. '  While in Phoenixi in company with  several citizens; A the* were ��� shown  through the Knob Hill mine by superintendent Win. Yolen; Williams, and  thus obtained some jdea ot the vast  bodies of ore which thfcir company will  soon be called upon to move to the.  Granby smelter at Grttnd Forks.  'J he Pioneer man {asked Captain  Troup how soon thciwSople of Phoenix  could expect to see the remaining two  miles of steel,laid to Uiis town, and  was informed that the Company would  undertake it now with the least possible  delay. This is understood to mean as  soon as the snow is sufficiently gone,  or inothe^course' of 4 month. The  railway company now wishes to ballast  the track from Greenwood to Midway,  and complete the Phoenix spur at  once, and will lose no time in doing  so. ��  JKr. Peters Says Rafcs Are Law.  F. XV. Petei.", assistant freight agent  of the C. P. R. at Nelson, has replied  to tbe criticisms oPteveral journals  that claim the freightl-ates, even since  the recent reduction, -are still unreasonably high. Here is'what Mr. Peters  say<t:  "When we took over the C. & W  branch from the contractors, we decid  ed to make a general reduction in all  our mileage rates throughout Kootenay  and Boundary country, and the reduction between say Nelson or Rossland  and Greenwood, >averages 40 per cent.  This change of tariffs- made a reduction a'so on all other Kootenay branches, which leaves our rates as cornered  with those of some of the* other lines  operating in this country an average of  30 per cent lower. Snre'^ this is fair,  especially through a district such as the  Boundary country, where the cost of  construction was enormous and the  cost of operating equally high.  "Mention is made ot the enormous  traffic into that district; the large acr  cumulation of freight which existed in  November and December was simply  orders held back for months, in order  to get* the benefit of railway rates as  against the enormous teaming rates  which existed. Nov that that is  ckarcJ up, .un one lUeiested can find  the trrtlic i<- not pariiuil.'ily lem'iiKi-  ative. Let me jjn c y< u one more comparison: the first five'CiuSa rale-, between Rossland and Ymir, a distance  of 60 miles via S. F. & N. railway ac-  according to tariff issued March 10,  are as follows:  "Class i, 73; class 2, 68: class 3, 63;  class 4, 56; class 5, 52  "For similar distance 60 miles the  construction rates which have been so  much criticised are as follows-  "Class 1, 78; class 2, 66; class 3, 52;  class 4, 40; class 5, 36  "Our present rates lor same distance  over any ol our lines 111 Kootenay or  Boundary are as follows: Class 1, 58;  class 2, 50; class 3, 40; class 4, 30;  class 5, 27.  "If any reasonable person will compare these figures and w ill recognize  the enormous expenditure in opening  up the West Kootenay and Boundary  districts which this company has gone  to, I do not think they will agree with  some of the press  criticisms  referred  So Says The Treasurer of The  Company.  ML J.H.BEECHER AT MINE WEDNESDAY  War Eaile Shalt Now  Drop  Coejaresser  "���, ; Rack Fly.'V...',;  Dowa M Fcet-Oald  is Now Maklag  the  about 300 feet and the latter 250 feet.  Like most of the other mines of this  camp, in the Gold Drop they are running through or along side of ore most  of the time, and do not have much of  a hunt to find it. The permanent and  larger compressor plant is .to Ixj in  position by July, when the present  compressor will be abandoned. The  new plant will be half of a 15-drill duplex Ingersoll-Sargeant machine.  !N FIELD OF POLITICS  . The Winnipeg mine, which closed  down a few weeks ago, as it was" given out  then, pending negotiations for consolidation with the Golden Crown, will  resume operations shortly. This positive statement was given out Wednesday by'D. H. Bcecher, the treasurer  of the Winning Mining & Smelting  Co. Mr. Bcecher is a prominent business man of Grand Forks, North  Dakota,- and has just made a trip of  inspection to the mine.  He informed a representative of the  Pioneer that 'he was. much pleased with  the appearance of the property, and  the returns ol-from $18 to $24 per ton  on the ore shipped thus far more than  realized the expectations of the stockholders. ,/1'he Winnipeg, which has  been continuously worked for two  years and a half up to this time, is  developed to the 300-fobt level, and  has about 2000 feet of work done thus  far. There are large ore reserves to  be drawn on, from which steady ship^  ments will begin as soon as operations  are once more started. It was thought  this would be at the time the steel was  laid to the ore dumps, but Mr. Beecher  says it will be sooner. At present the  managing director, Duncan Mcintosh;  is east, and will visit Nova Scotia before .his return, where he will be mar  ried. He is expected back in about two  weeks, when .work..'Will: be started  again.'  y    , '���*��� -.' :���',  Mr. Beecher is a prosperous banker  in -his North Dakota home, and has  other interests in the Boundary. ��� One  of these is the Homestake, adjoining  the Emma in Summit camp, which  will be actively developed this summer.  The corporation owning it is the Boundary Homestake Mining Co., Ltd.    :  In regard to the proposed con soli  dation with toe';G^  to.'  In tbe Martin Cabinet.  Victoria, B.'C, March 19.���M.P.  Gordon of Kamloops has just refused  the portfolio of finance in the Martin  cabinet, while Dr. Watt of Fort Steele,  lather of Superintendent Watt, of Williams Head quarantine,- has accepted  the department of lands and works, and  is now en route to Victoria.  Real Estate and Mines.  Agent for the following Fire Insurance Companies:���Phoenix, of London  Western Assurance and the British America Assurance, of Toronto.  the  Selling Agent OLD IRONSIDES SUBDIVISION, Town  of Phoenix.  ttf  OFFIGB: KNOB HILL AVENUE  Beecher stated that negotiationsN.w;ere  still pending between,the,officers of the  two companies, but as yet there was  nothing :that he could, give, outlor publication. '<��� i'.; ���' '  The   following   appeared   in   last  Thursday's Rossland Miner:  "There has not been much dealing  i in Brandon & Golden:. Crown since  the proposed consolidation with,the  Winnipeg; cX the contrary, the stock  has gone down steadily since the plan  was proposed. On the local board.23  was asked for Brandon and 19 bid. It  is said that there is a growing sentiment among the shareholders of the  Winnipeg which is strongly opposed to  the consolidation of these two properties. The feeling is so strong that' if  is now said that legal proceedings may  be instituted to prevent". the consolidation.-  ��� "A great deal of dissatisfaction is expressed, too, at the arbitrary action-of  the superintendent of the Winnipeg on  shutting, down that  property  without  first having obtained   the  sanction  of  the board of directors.    There is liable  to be an investigation  into the matter,  and drastic measures  may   be  taken.  A number of the stockholders consider  that the shutting down of the mine  at  this time is totally   unwarranted,   and  that its only possible effect:has been to  reduce tlie price of shares.    The propel ty, they say; has about 100,000 tons!  of ore in sight, .and that the effort of  the management should be now directed to getting out and  marketing this  ore and making  the property  yield  a  profit instead of allowing it to be idle;  "They further allege  that the shut-  down'is an arbitrary  and unwarranted  assumption of authority on the part of  an  individual  who owns a very small  proportion of the  stock.      There  is,  therefore,   every   possibility  that  the  matter, unless there is a change for the  better-very soon, will be brought before  a meeting of the  stockholders  for adjudication.?  War Eagle Shaft Down 90 Feet.  Progress on the shaft of the War  Eagle is steady, and has now- attained  a depth of about 90 feet���the average  rate being two feet daily. This week  a Pioneer representative visited the  property and went down into the workings with C. G. Buck, the superintendent. As depth is gained the character of the ore is steadily improving.  The new compressor, hoist and pumps  are all working smoothly and satisfactorily. Some 17 men are employed  at the property, and this force will be  increased when crosscutting begins at  the 100-foot level. This should be  some time next week, if there are no  dolavs.  It is reported that the ore body has  been struck on the 70-foot level of the  City, of Paris, in White's camp.  Drifting is now going on at the 100-  foot level on the Norfolk in Central  camp, owned by the London & B. C.  Gold Fields.   ������".  . The freight and treatment rate thus  far charged by the C. P. R. on Boundary ores to the Trail smelter is said  to be $7 per ton.  The. shaft on the St. Lawrence,  Deadwood camp, is down 75 feet, and  will be continued to the 150 foot level  before drifting is begun.  Three carloads of Winnipeg ore, recently shiped gave returns of $18, $22  and $24 per ton respectively. Altogether thus far nine cars have been  shipped from this property.  On the Sunset,* in Deadwood camp,  the new; Half of a 20-driIl compressor,  with the two 80-h. p. boilers are working good shape. '��� The double compartment shaft is now down 150 feet,'  From a large number of tests, an  average value of Golden Crown ore is  $35 Per ton- A car daily, from development only, is expected 'Co be shipped  from the mine, as soon as steel is laid  to the ore bunkers���now very shortly.  A strike of 18 feet of good ore is  reported from the Banner claim in'  Franklin camp, at the head waters of  the north, fork of the Kettle Vivcr. The  property was bonded last year by  Henry White, one of the old timers in  Phoenix and other Boundary camps.  Superintendent Buck, of the War  Eagle, Who is also in charge of the Red  Rock and Bald Eagle, has received  instructions to begin development  work on the latter properties as soon  as thay can be gotten at to advantage.  This will probably be in a short time,  as the snow, even at that altitude, is  disappearing fast. .  /1'he annual meeting of the stockholders of the Mountain View Copper  :Cp,w:as;heId at Eholt ^Monday  night  Premier Martin's Cabinet Not  Yet Filled.

It is expected that-tenders will be  opened and. a-con tract let for develop  ment work on the property in a' few-  days.  During the last week, there has been  but little change in the political outlook of the province. Premier Mar-,  tin has not yet filled his cabinet', and  does not seem to he in a hurry. The  business men of Victoria have sent in  a protest against the present situation,  which the lieutenant-governor rather  curtly turned down. The premier has  seized ties and timber on the Crow's  Nest railway, for alleged lack of payment of royalties.  This week Smith Curtis, the minister of mines has been in Rossland,and  was exjiected daily in the Boundary, v  but up to this writing had not appeared. Mr. Curtis seems very confident  of Mr. Martin's success at the polls,  but as yet, the,premier is supported by  but few papers in the province. Premier 1-iurier, at Ottawa, has refused  to interfere, saying that the people of  British Columbia have the remedy in  their own hands.  An endeavor is being made to draw  strict party lines in the coming contesL,  and the conservatives will doubtless  have nominees in the different ridings.  Then there will be the liberals opposed  to Martin and the straight Martinites.  As yet it is anybody's fight, and presents a most unusual iwlitical anomaly.  PoHOcal Maters.  W. B. Cochrane returned Monday  from the liberal-conservative convention held at Nelson.  A. B. Clabon, of Rossland, has been  offered a cabinet portfolio, according  to the latest report    ���  James M.

There is h'ttle to record in the  Transvaal war situation this week.  The British forces are-still advancing  toward Pretoria, and the Boers are as  steadily retreating, w-ithout important  battles occurring.  The report is gaining currency that  Messrs. Gooderham and Blackstock,  majority owners of the War Eagle and  Center Star mines at Rossland, are  negotiating for the Hall Mines  smelter at Nelson. Supt. Hastings,  of Rossland, recently examined both  smelter and mine.  Last Wednesday the little town of  Kuskonook, on Kootenay lake was  wiped out by fire. The burned buildings included the postoffice and the  mining recordei's office, the papers in  the latter place, however, bein^ saved.  The fire is thought to have been incendiary. Loss, $15,000, no insurance.  At least 35 builings were burned,  many of them unoccupied.  It is announced that the contract  for the construction of the Wenatchee  extension of the Great Northern into  Republic has been let. Generally  speaking, the route of the extension,  as recently surveyed, will be from  Wenatchee up the east bank of the  Columbia to the Okano��an, up that  creek, up stream to the headquarters  of that creek, across Enos valley to  the headwaters of the west fork, down  to the San L'oil river and up stream to  Republic.  The McRae sawmill now has two  lumber yards in Phoenix���one each  on Dominion and  Standard  avenues.  Cleaning up back yards is now in  order and absolutely imj)erative.  Those who do not do it voluntarily will  probably receive a visit from the provincial constable. The health act is  very explicit. Private as well as public houses should attend to this at  once.  The Dominion Express Company's  employees throughout the Dominion  are raising a patriotic fund, to be called the Dominion Express Company's  Voluntary Patriotic Fund.    Each em-  net, headed towards Victoria.  Hon. C~ H. Mackintosh, of- Ross=-  land, is talked' 'of 'as a conservative  nominee,, and the name of'FX BvBogUj  is also prominently' mentioned.-  Dr. Bowes, of Rossland, is out as  an out-and-out eight-hour candidate  for legislative honors from this riding,  makings lour possible candidates to  date. I  The Rossland liberal-conservatives  will meet April, 2nd to choose delegates to a convention to be held April  10th to nominate a candidate trom  this riding.  The Liberal-Conservative Association of Phoenix, held a meeting Thursday evening, and will meet again next  Monday evening, when the list1 of  officers will be completed.  There is talk of G. O. Buchanan, of  Kaslo, opposing R. F.. Green, M. P.  P., at the approaching election in Slo?  can riding. Wm. Hunter, of Silver-,  ton, may also enter the lists.  William Fernie, after whom the town  in East Kootenay is named, has announced himself as a candidate for.  East Kootenay in the next . provincial  elections. His platform has not yet  been given ont.  The Rossland Record is authority  for the statement that Joe Martin has  offered the'portfolio of finance minister to George A. Stewart Potts, who is  still considering that offer. Mr. Potts  is an e.x-newspai>er man, and-is now-  junior member in the law firm of  Tupper, Peters & Potts of Vancouver,  and is now located at Greenwood.  The report is not corroborated, however.

Joe Martin has fired his first gun,  with 22 planks, into the political arena.  That will give his'enemies just 22 separate opportunities to fire back at him  ���that is if any such were previously  needed.  Mr. Martin's most bitter opponents  assert that the lieutenant-governor  should be dismissed, and talk of Hewitt  Jiostock. as his successor. The premier,  questions. If a passenger hails from  Grand Forks, Rossland or Nelson, he  must have a health ceitificate *or submit to \accination. There is nothing  to prevent a person stating that he  came from Re\elstoke and beyond,  or any other station than the three  mentioned.  ���"**  Establishing a  quarantine  is right  and proper, but such a quarantine is  of little or no benefit.

WORTHY OF SPECIAL NOTE  If there is one practice more than  another to be condemned in western  . ton ns, ft is that of sending back east  lor goods which can be as well gotten  right in our midst. Too often, also,  the goods received are of an inferior  quality; and of course, there is no  practicable redress. ���> '*> t ���  The Vernbn News calls attention to  this habit in its locality,' and  emphasizes the injustice done thereby to the  locali merchants.

It is high  time that a halt was called and that  public instead of private interests were  looked after.  Already there is a move of the army  of prospectors to the hills, and there is  e'cry chance of bigger and better disco veiies being "made this year than in  the jxist. The vast mineral riches of  the Boundary are only just beginning to  be know n or found.  Premier Martin has been raising a  great hullaballoo about the mining  situation in Rossland, and Smith Curtis has been this week looking into the  matter.t If the premier would' hasten  more to bring on the election,' it would  suit the people" better.  "Bobs" is living up to his record in  South Africa. Now that "Ladysmith  has been relieved' and Bloemfontein  captured, General Roberts is advancing on Pretoria. Kruger's days as the  potentate of South Africa are , practically numbered, and that entire region  will be the gainer.

That  money'was.thrown- away by the dissolution of the legislature* without passing one single act of *any kind.' The  members of that legislature will be remembered by the people. '���  Members of the sanitary committee  of the Phoenix Board bf' Trade wish  it understood that in assisting the provincial constable in enforcing the provisions of the health act, they are acting  only for the, best good of the town.

In this connection it is said that recently the provincial health authorities  ordered the mayor of Nelson by wire  to erect a pest house and do other  things needful to keep out smallpox.  Mayor Houston's answer by'wire is  said to have been as follows:  "I'll see  you and your governmet in    first." To say the least, this was brief  and to the point, but the reply did not  appear in lull in the mayor's paper,  the Tribune.  Jay P. Graves, whose syndicate, is  operating on such an extensive and  successful scale in Phoenix camp, has  recently bonded" a group called the  Rockland, in"- the Slocan, of which  great things are predicted���and evidently with reason. It is >the only  copper-gold i'property of consequence  that is known of in the heart of the  silvery Slocan. The property of the  syndicate was visited last week by Wm.  Yolen Williams, of Phoenix, the expert  and superintendent of the Knob Hill  and Old Ironsides. He secured samples and it is said was highly pleased  with the,enormous ledge on the claim.  It is a pleasing comment1, that, at a  time when most of the capitalists and  investors this side of the Atlantic, are  tightening their ��� purse! strings, Mr.  Graves should be successful in interest  ing additional capital for the development of mineral properties.

The  theory is that the C.P.R. wants to shut  off the anti-C.P.R. articles appearing  in the Gazette, in which its editor is  becoming as much of an adept as the  versatile editor of the Miner.,  A short time ago when tbe War  Eagle closed dow n in Rossland, the  Toronto World took occasion to publish some misleading information about  the mines of Phoenix camp. That  journal, which has thus discredited  itself, has probably learned by this  time that the majority of mining companies operating in this camp are not  of the variety it took such fiendish  delight in describing.

He wants a "square set" of men to  work for him, some feed for his "giraffe," a bird for the "cage," a -hunter  to hunt the "gopher" and a "grizzly"  and a sprinter to "run a drift" against  time.
