Last Saturday evening a meeting of  the board of police commissioners" of  the city, was held, but as the Pioneer,  representative did not receive   an in  vitation to attend, our report was ob  tained   through  those   present.  The full board was present, including Mayor Rumberger, Alderman Marshall and James Punch. Police Magistrate Williams was also there, and ex-  Aldermen Porter and Delabay were invited to be on hand and accepted.  The commissioners asked Mr. Porter for some positive, definite charge  against Chief.of Police Flood, whose  removal has been repeatedly called for.  Mr. Porter stated that the copy of the  testimony in the case of Alice Chase  vs. Flood,which was sent to the government, when the five alderman resigned, constituted sufficient charge;  and when pressed for more particulars,  said that should be enough for any  one, and withdrew.  After listening to the wrangling for  some time Alderman Marshall also  withdrew from the meeting.  It is understood that the new police  commissioners favor the resignation of  Chief Flood, although they do not seem  to care to be placed on record in the  matter. At all events, Saturday's  meeting of the police- board was'not  fruitful of any results, and the-municipal trouble is in about the same  shape that it was a week ago.

At awneeting Wednesday at Nelson  of dentists gathered from several cities  and towns in this section of the province, together with, the members of  the profession in Nelson, the Interior  Dental Association was organized.  The association is composed of members of the profession practising in  Nelson, Rossland, Grand Forks,  Greenwood, Cranbrook, Fernie, Vernon, Revelstoke, Kamloops, and Ash-  croft.  The officers elected for the year are:  Dr. K. C. Macdonald, president; Dr.  F. E. Morrison, vice-president; Dr. W.  Barratt Clayton, secretary-treasurer,  who with Dr. Stoddart and Dr. W. J  Curry comprise the executive committee. *  The following preamble and resolution, which was adopted, shows in a  measure the reasons for the organization ofthe society:  Whereas, the growing importance of  the interior-and the many infringements of the Dental Act by students  and other unqualified persons, and recognizing the disadvantages under  which the board labors by being so far  removed from the interior; therefore  be it  Resolved, that we the members of  the Interior Dental Association in convention assembled hereby earnestly request that the interior be given representation on the board of dental ex  aminers for British Columbia.  RECORD POR POUR MONTHS.  So Far Over  2M,MW Too* Shipped  From  Boaaiar.  For the first four months of this  year the ore product from Boundary  mines runs up to 280,000 tons. From  various causes output for April shows  a considerably smaller total than the  previous month. In March 72,-  000 tons and.,, in April 60,000  tons were sent out.' The blowing out  of several blast furnaces, at the smelter  was doubtless the chief reason for less  tonnage. Following are the figures  from the mifies for April:  .

Ii Six Weeks  They'Will Be Pfgi-daf 156  Toss a Dav.  H. N. Galer, of the Granby company returned this week from Coleman,  Alberta, to Grand Forks. He reports  that everything is running very smoothly at the coal mines at Coleman. The  daily output at the present time, the  result of development work only, is  150 tons, which is absorbed by the  Canadian Pacific railway.  "Coleman," said Mr. Galer, "will  soon become a coke producer. Our  first battery of 104 ovens is nearing  completion, and in about six weeks  time I expect that we will be turning  out about 150 tons daily.  "Last Sunday we received our first  mail at Coleman, as we now have a  postoffice there. We are further  equipped with a railway station, telegraph office, and other railway facilities."  Under Sentence of Death.  City Clerk Matheson has received a  letter from a sister of mercy in a town  in Mexico, asking as to the character  of John Conway, formerly of this place.  The letter states that: Conway is under  sentence of death for killing a rich  mint; owner, and that an attempt is  being made to secure a new trial.  Ooe Hundred P. tblans Will Come  to  Phoenix.  Next Tuesday, according to the  plans mapped out, a special train will  arrive in Phoenix in the afternoon,  containing about 100 members of the  Knights of Pythias, the grand lodge  meeting lo take place in Giand Forks  next week.  It is proposed to show the visitors  the Granby mines, through the courtesy of Wm. Y. Williams, the. superintendent and in the evening enjoy a  banquet before returning to Grand  Forks.  Last week Mayor Jeffrey Ham mar,  and Geo. J. Chappie, of Grand Forks,  were in Phoenix, talking over matters  in connection with the annual meeting of the grand lodge. J. E. W.  Thompson has been appointed official  representative of Phoenix Lodge No.  28 to the grand lodge, but a large  number of others will also attend, and  assist in making the visitors from all  over the province welcome to the  Boundary.  A.atnlB That Qranby Co. la Dolif Cheapest  Smeltlnr lo Ihe World ��� Represent!  America* Metal Co , Ltd.  Trains Have Been Late.  For several days this week the incoming C. P. R. passenger trains have  been late. The-trouble was occasioned by gravel slides on the railway east  of Cascade and Fife, some of which  have been quite extensive, and required a steam shovel to clean them  away.  Fred Simpson, of the Cranbrook  Herald, perpetrated the following last  week;       <.���'"*  Editor Willcox, of the Phoenix  Pioneer, has been away two weeks on  a jaunt to the coast cities. He took  his wife and baby and traveled like a  plutocrat. Willcox gets out a good  paper, and is a persistent booster for  Phoenix. If his town is populated  with the class of people who like to  see a town grow, they should send him  away once a year with a purse to pay  his expeqse^.  Senator Reid Dead.  Vancouver, May 4.���Senator Reid  died at his residence here late yestef-  day. He had been ailing for some  time and was very sick when brought  home from Ottawa by Mrs. Reid about  ten days ago. .It was unofficially  stated that Hewitt Bostock, ex-M. P.  for Yale-Cariboo, would be his successor.  DIED AT THE HOSPITAL.  Anffat A. McDonald Was Buried by  Miners'  Union Tuesday.  After being an inmate of the hospital for only three days, Angus A. McDonald died in that institution last  Sunday, from heart failure, brought on  by Ia grippe and bronchitis. McDonald  was a young man of 24, a native of  Arisaig, Antigonish County, Nova  Scotia, and had been in the Kootenays  for some little time, though he had  only been employed at the Granby  mines for the last month or two.  The funeral was held on Tuesday  morning, under the auspices of Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8, of which  McDonald was a member, the burial:  taking place at Greenwood cemetery.-;  Constable D. J. Darraugh, of Eholt,  was a visitor in the city; Monday, for  the purpose of serving a subpoena on  McDonald, as a witness in a murdei  trial that is to take place in Nelson.  When Darraugh arrived here with the  papers, McDonald was no more. McDonald had a cousin employed here  in the mines.  Theodore Sternfeld, representing  Ihe American Metal Co., Ltd.,  of New York, spent several days in the  Boundary this week, inspecting the  Granby mines and smelter. Mr. Sternfeld was a visitor in Phoenix three or  four years ago, and was much impressed with the remarkable progress made  in mining since his former visit.  Through the courtesy of Supt.  Williams, Mr. Sternfeld was taken  through the mammoth underground  stopes and workings of the Old Ironsides and Knob Hill miner. It is his  opinion after visiting the Granby  smelter, that the cheapest smelting in  the entire world is now being done on  the North Fork of the Kettle river, just  above Grand Forks.  The officials of the American Metal  Co., Ltd., are also shareholders in the  Granby Co., and the company has the  direct disposal of the metals produced  in the Granby mines after they leave  the refiners, being the last act of marketing, till the metals reach the consumers. This is about the sequence:  ore mined at Phoenix; smelted at  Grand Forks; bessemerized at Grand  Forks; refined at New York, where the  gold and silver values are separated  from the- copper; marketing of the  actual product in New York.  FERNIE FIRE LOSSES.  -Some of  .Starting For the North.  Next Tuesday J. P. Shannon and J.  S. Boyce will start on an extended  trip to the northern parts of the province. They will .travel with horses  through the Similkameen and Nicola  valleys to Ashcroft and thence on up  the old Cariboo wagon road. Optsa  lake is the immediate objective point,  although they will probably go further  than that. They will spy out the  country for land that is suitable for  cattle raising or anything else that  there is money in, and expect to be  absent from "Phoenix all summer.  Insurance Adjusters Now at Work-  the Heaviest Losers.  The insurance adjusters are now-  busy preparing statements of losses and  arranging for settlement of the numerous clbjms for losses by the fire at  Fernie last week.  Trites, Wood & Co., were probably  the heaviest losers in the fire, despite  the fact that they carried $73,000 insurance on their stock. This firm at  its last stocktaking had goods to the  value of $202,000 in its Fernie premises and it is not likely that they had  any less on hand at the time of the  fire. The firm were fortunate in placing an additional $12,000 of insurance  a few days before the fire occurred.  J. Quail is another heavy loser. He  had a splendid stock of hardware and  furniture only insured to a very small  proportion of its value.  A. J. Purdy carried a big stock, estimated to be worth probably $20,000,  and the insurance only amounted to  about $2000. However this firm mean  to resume business and will be open  again in temporary quarters within the  next few days.  Trites, Wood & Co., W. Tuttle of  the Royal Hotel, Ferguson, proprietor  of the Muskoka hotel, and Fred Cuth-  bert are among those who have already  delared their intention of rebuilding.  The last mentioned will put up brick  buildings.  The plasterers are now busy on the  new Dr. Boucher residence.  During the month of April 383 feet  of development work was done at the  Granby mines.  ". Alex Miller reports that a rich body  of ore has been struck in the Helen,  near Greenwood, and that a smelter  shipment will be made soon.  Last Monday one of the steam  shovels resumed operations at the  Granby mines, and in a short time the  second shovel will also be at work.  Three shifts have been working o  late on the lower levels of the Providence, and jt is expected that the  shipments this summer will be somewhat heavier than in the past.  The 18th of May is' the date set for  the sale of shares owned by delinquent  shareholders in the Morrison, Mines,  Ltd. Il was postponed from the 22d  of April, and will be held in Greenwood.  Work was resumed on the Trilby,  near Greenwood, this week. The property is-under bond to L. A. Smith  and Gaunce & Wickwire, and beinp  situated near the steadily shipping E.  P. U. and having a good lead, it is believed will prove to be a good mine.  Development on the Defiance was  resumed by William Fowler, the man  who was instrumental in making the  Providence famous. The entire steam  plant of the Marguerite, in Deadwood  camp, has been purchased, including  hoist, pump and drills, etc., and is being installed at the Defiance.  A. J. McMillan, managing director  of the LeRoi and Snowshoe companies,  who arrived in the east from London  a week or two since, arrived  in Rossland this week. Foreman Trevor, ow, of the Snowshoe, the only employee of that property now, may go  over to Rossland to meet Mr. McMillan.  Supt. Longley is" starting development on the Carmi, up the West Fork.  All repairs, necessitated by a year or  two shut down, have been made, and  drifting on the 150 foot level of the  Carmi is on the programme. This is  one of the properties that is expected  to become a steady shipper at no distant date.  Development work was started this  week on the Lottie F. group, up the  Main Kettle river, owned by G. W.  Rumberger, Jas. Marshall, J. B. Mc-  Caulay and William Fernie. Last  Sunday Messrs. Rumberger, Fernie  and Strachan left for the property, and  Mr, Marshall will start in a few days  and will spend some time at the  mine.  Camp McKlnney Consolidation.  From Montreal and Toronto comes  word.of a projected consolidation of the  Sailor, Kamloops and Minnehaha  properties in Camp McKinney. The  Sailor has much ore, the Kamloops  has a substantial amount of money in  the treasury and the Minnehaha has a  fine and complete plant. The properties are adjacent, and neither is worth  much individually for immediate returns, but would appear fitly to unite  for the welfare of the holders in each.  Several Boundary people have a shareholding interest in these properties and  hopes obtain that the deal will be carried through.  Latest Prices in Metals.

But there, are  some object lessons from that fixe, that  ,shou!d be taken note_,p..byul thinking  people throughout British Columbia.,  ,  There is probably notta-tonn or city  ijnjhe interio^that is able  to   cope  vg'jXb. a fire of any extent, should such  once get started.   Therefore,jit is,not  unlikely that other places may have  the same .disaster to deal with, from the  very nature of the,case.      , [(  One thing that all .towns, should see  to is that the water pressure ii strong  enough for all purposes at all times.  But for the weak water pressure, the  Fernie fire might not have been so  serious. ,  Such fire apparatus as can be had  by the means at hand should be provided, and the citizens should acquire  familiarity with its use. Apparently,  Fernie's fire fighting apparatus did"not  put much figure, perhaps because there  was so little pressure in the water  mains.  is Business   men   and    householders!

Business Section Wiped Out In a Few Hours-  Will Rebuild.  Fire broke at Fernie at 3  o'clock  last week Friday morning and  before  subdued at 8  o'clock had practically  wiped out the whole of the  business  portion of the town and some private  residences.    Owing to the poor water  supply the fire brigade was unable to  check the spread of the flames.  Every  grocery   and   dry  goods   store  burned.    Rain was falling during the  the progress of the fire,   but despite  this advantage it gained headway,  eat-  ipg i{s way steadily through  the  business   district,   consuming   nearly six  b[ocks and causing an estimated damage of $500,000.    It is believed the  as  structures.  The Japanese glory in their country  and their Emporer, says the   Outlook.  They glory in their army and na.y,and  do it in such a  w hole-souled devoted J  way that the individual is entirely submerged. aToday in one of the northern  provinces of this island there lives (unless he has died within-a year or two),  and works as a common coolie, a man  who, in the war with .China in   1894, |  performed an   act   of   heroic   daring  hardly equalled   in   inilitary^-annals.  Across the deadly fire zone between  his own force and the enemy's walls he  carried a quantity of gun cotton to deposit it at the gate which the Japanese  were bombarding.    The attempt succeeded and he came out unhurt���and  was I now, by his own people at least,  he  thp and his deed arc forgotten.    He belongs to no I.egion"bf Honor,  he received   no   Victoria. Cross   or    Distinguished  Service    Order,    and   of  course he got no pension or berth  in  the customs or postoffice.  That kind of devotion is all but universal in the Japanese army and navy,  and will carry them far in the war that  has now begun.  Nor are the people at home less devoted or ready to sacrifice for their  country's sake.

When you  i;ead tne-  And Bo<mdary Mining JocmaJ,  , At the annual meeting of the Montreal and 'Boston Copper Company,  Limited, held in Montreal Wednesday,  the stockholders voted in favor of the  proposed merger with several British  Columbia properties, says the Montreal Gazette. '  Arrangements" have been completed  whereby a syndicate will secure the  control of the; properties to be "consol-  dated and turn them into the new corporation, which is to be organized.  The new company will be known as  the Montreal and Boston Consolidated  ���Mining and Smelting Company, Ltd.  The capital stock will,.lie $7,500,000,  of which $1,000,000 wjl. remain inthe  treasury for future needs of the com;  pany, and $1,500,000 deposited with  the Knickerbocker Trust Company of  New York, for exchange with the  shareholders of the Montreal & Boston  Copper Company, Limited, on the  basis of one share of stock of the new  company for two shares pf the Montreal & Boston Copper Company,  Limited. The balance of-$5,000,000  capital stock is to be issued to a syndicate, who will turn in th?;proDerties as  above, and also pay into the treasury  ofthe company $150,000 cash for  working capital.  The $5,000,000 capitahstock to be  delivered to the syndicate is in consideration of the syndicate turning in the  total capitalization of the Dominion  Copper Company, Limited; Morrison  Mines, Limited; Athelstan & Jackpot  Gold Mining Company, and a three-  quarter interest in the Iimma mine.  Should the syndicate he unable to turn  in the capital stock of these companies,  the share consideration in the new  company to be issued lo the syndicate  will be reduced proportionately. The  companies to be acquired are all producing properties and have been thoroughly prospected and developed.  An agreement with the Knickerbocker Trust Company was submitted,  which is to be signed by the shareholders in forwarding their shares to  be exchanged for the shares of the  new company. Pending the issue of  the new stock, a temporary interim  certificate will be issued by the trust  company. :    -  --������ Among the men who,'are .0 figure in  the consolidated company are said to  be H. H. Melville, of Boston, vice-  president of the Great Northern rail-  .'way ot Canada; '-TV W. Allison, of New  York, president ofthe National Leather  Company; J> (,NV, (Greenshields, of  Montreal, president of the Shawirii  gan Water & Power Company; William Mitchell, Montreal, president of  the Pennsylvania Coal Conipany, of  Canada; Thomas Crockett, Riviere du  Loups, Canada; Colonel G. Creighton  Webb, of New York; Delancey Nicoll,  of New York; W. A. Beal, of Boston;  W. N. Coler, Jr., New York; Charles  M. Jessup,, president Eastern Trust  Conipany, New York; John Macder-  mid, Montreal, and John F.'Plummer,  Naw York.  It was reported in Spokane last week  that as soon as the merger "is under  way important additions are to be  made at the Montreal & Boston smelter, including the erection of a fourth  furnace and a converter plant that will  give a capacity of 1,500 tons per day.  Under the new arrangement it is believed that all of the smelting operations of the new company will be performed at Boundary Falls, B. C.,whe>e  the Montreal & Boston has several furnaces completed.  It is believed that a coal property  will likewise be secured in order to enable the company to manufacture its  coke and thus prevent a repetition of  the shut-down experienced last year by  the company's inability to secure sufficient coke for its furnaces.  The only change announced in the  affairs of the Montreal & Boston Company is the election of J. S. Taylor, of  New York, as a director to succeed A.  N.
