The Granby  Co. employs 500 men, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over $50,000: Two railroads  afford access to the city.  Devoted to the Interests of the Boundary Mining District  The Phoenix Pioneer is  published in the highest  municipality in Canada-  altitude, 4,800 ft.

EARNS  $100,000 IN JAN.  Blister   Copper,   2,170,139  lbs.; Silver* 31,276 ozs.;  Gold, 2525 ozs.  The Red Metal  The Granby Mining'and Smelting  company, with mines at Phoenix and  Hidden Creek, B.C., and in Alaska,  and smelters at Grand Forks and  Anyox, B. C, earned $100,000 net  in January, according to reports received this week from New York.  The total output was 2,170,139 lbs.  of blister copper, 31,276 ounces of  silver, and 2525 ounces of gold.  The copper production in December  was 1,616,556 pounds.  The segregated report shows that  the Anyox plant produced 1,304,353  pounds of blister copper, 19,053 ozs.  of silver and 506 ounces of gold, and  the output of the Grand Forks smelter was 775,786 pounds of blister  copper, 12,223 ounces of silver and  2019 ounces of gold.  The company plans to resume  shipments soon from the 'Midas  mine, in Alaska, where operations  were suspended soon after the outbreak of the European war, and it is  believed that the February earnings  will be in excess of January, as there  were 10,000 tons more! ore treated  at' the Grand Forks, smelter during  the month. vGranby has but six of  its eight furnaces in operation.  All'sfWell  A postcard, passed by the censor,  and marked "field postoffice," was  received during the .week by. W..  Delahay, from Teddy Horrell. There  was absolutely no clue as to the  whereabouts in France of the 7th,  but the few lines, written with a lead  pencil, stated that all the Phoenix  boys were well. The postcard was  mailed on Feb. 28th.  Geo. S. Walters, Greenwood, has  bought the Phoenix stage.   ..-,  "Copper, is   decidedly stronger,"  says G. W. Walker  in  his weekly  copper   letter   to   the   Boston Commercial.     "Lake  is; 15^   to   15^  cents and electrolytic is 14^ to  15  cents  a  pound.    Exports  so far in  March have  been  at  the rate  of 65  to 70 million  pounds monthly;  but  in spite   of this   the   foreign visible  supply is continuing to decrease.    .  In   his   speech   this   week,    Lord  Kitchener said   "the .supply of war  material   is   now   and for  the   next  month or two   will be a very serious  consideration.     .    .      It is essential  that the  output of  ammunition   be  increased.    To  dp so  is  of the utmost importance  to! the   operations  in   the  field."    This  statement was  followed promptly, by  further heavy  buying   of copper   by   French    and  English  consumers.     It how seems  probable   that  the  demand  will increase sufficiently fast to absorb the  larger  production   which   will   soon  be coming from the mines as the result of a general abandonment of the  curtailment policy.  "A factor of no mean importance  in the metal market is the' loss of  copper in connection with the heavy  destruction of merchant ships by  German, submarines. One vessel  containing 2,000,000 pounds of copper from the Rio Tinto mine was  sunk -in the English Channel last  week."  B. C. Mining  Geology of Franklin Camp  A detailed study of the areal and  economic geology of the district in  and around Franklin and Gloucester  camps is being prepared for publication by the Dominion Department of  Mines,-��v^he��-report-is the result qf  the work carried out" in 1911 by Dr.  W. Drysdale of the Canadian Geological Survey, and will no doubt do  much towards dispelling the unwarranted distrust that undoubtedly  prevails regarding the above-mentioned two camps.  The   Chesaw   News   says   that a  carload'.' of  ore   from   the   Western  Star mine   returned  something like  1300 dollars; or at the  rate  of $5;2  ���per ton.

The ledge is  being crosscut in the lower tunnel,;  running through considerable lead*  ore in bunches. ���  The value of placer gold recovered?  from British Columbia mining fields  during last year is,valued in the an-��  nual mineral report of the provincial  mineralogist, W. .-Fleet"' Robertson,5*,  at $524,000. Of this all but one-  twentieth was .taken from the Cariboo and Cassiar districts. The silver:  produced in the province was 3,395,-  000 ounces, being 71,000 less. than,  the year .before;* .Mr.- Robertson's  report shows that the actual mineral/  returrr'is less than for 1913 or 1912,;  is the same as that of 1910, and is  above the average for the last ten  years.    Mining last year was earned  The New Naturalization  Full information has now been received .of the steps to be taken in  obtaining British naturalization under the naturalization law which has  recently -bden passed. . To obtain a  certificate of citizenship that will be  good in any part of the world requires the following course: Applications must be posted for three  months in the office of the county  court and general postoffice. A  judge of the county court then de-  decides upon the suitability of the  applicant for British naturalization  and if it meets with his approval  the application is forwarded to the  secretary of the department of state  at Ottawa, in whom is vested the  final decision.  The qualification for naturalization  in the British Empire requires a residence of at least one year in Canada, and also that the four years  immediately preceding shall have  been spent in some part of the British dominions. A very close personal description is required by the  applicant, of either sex, and a fee of  $5.00 is demanded.  More Linen Wanted  Immigration Restrictions  An order-in-council issued from  Ottawa, on Monday, extends the  period for restricting the entry  through any port in British Columbia of skilled and unskilled labor.  The former order expires on April  1st, and the new regulation simply  extends   the   time   for!  another   six  Just at present we are, so to  speak, living in a world of wounded  and crippled soldier's. Let us realize it and do what we can to mitigate the suffering, and incidentally  relieve the anxiety of those on whom  has fallen the task of ministering to  them. The need' for bandages is  very great just now, and the call  has gone out for such from the military hospitals of France and England. Let us ask ourselves the  question "If the need is so urgent  now, what will it be in another  month when the great forward  movement is initiated and the grim  harvest is quadrupled. Then remember that not only will the hospital corps have the task of caring  for Belgian, French and British  wounded, there will be the German  casulties by the thousand. Then in  addition there is the wounded in  Egypt, on the Dardanelles, on the  Persian Gulf, and South and East  Africa. One writer states that it  is almost impossible for those on  the outside to grasp the immediate  need   for   dressings,  bandages, etc.  Depots for the reception of linen  have been established throughout  the.Dominion: and here in Phoenix  the members of the Woman's Patriotic Society have arranged a receiving   station.     What   is   wanted  RARE MINERAL  ON GLADSTONE  Only Found in Two Other  Localities ���-Tulameeri  and Arkansas.  While at work surface stripping;  on his mineral claim, the Gladstone,  some time ago. J. J. Bassett picked  up a piece of rock that in no way  answered the description of any  other product hitherto found within  the radius of this camp. In color it  was. extreme black, and a puzzler to  all to whom Mr. Bassett showed it.  The mystery, however, has been  solved by W. Fleet Robertson, of  the Provincial Department of Mines,  to whom a sample was sent by N.  E. Nelson, of the Granby company's  engineering staff, and the result is  that Phoenix is one of the two othar  known localities where such specimens have been picked up. The report states that this "stranger" is a  piece of chromite, which usually  consists of iron oxide and chromium,  but what is more:remarkable is the  presence in it of 'microscopical diamonds,^similar ta; that found a few  years ago in the Tulameen, and ex.  amined by Mr. Gamsell of the Dom-  on under unprecedented   conditions.>l months.     As a  protective  measure  During 1914 lode-mined gold was  produced to^the value of $5,104,126,  which-is less than the- two previous  years, but should be increased when  conditions are .again normal.- The  silver output is greater than, any  year since 1905. The copper,production of the province for 1914 was  $44,968,541 pounds, worth nearly  $6,000,000. The, zinc production of  7,029,276 pounds was a record over  the past   five   years.

The decision ��� of the British gov  ernment to allow the shipment of  cotton to Germany was a concession  the importance of which is not fully  understood by the great majority of  our cousins to the south of us. But  that is was a concession of the highest importance may be guaged from  the fact that cotton enters largely  into the manufacture of smokeless  powder, which to give "it its right  name is nothing more than gun-  cotton. Every student of gunnery  knows that the term "smokeless"  as applied to heavy ordnance is a  misnomer, the only difference being that the .smoke from the so-  called "smokeless" volatizes much  quicker than that from the older  style of powders, which generally  hung over the battery for hours.  Smokeless powder, or guncotton, is  made by soaking cotton in a solution of nitric and sulphuric acid,  three parts of the former to one of  the latter. -' A 12-inch naval gun requires a firing charge of 30.01bs of.  powder to throw the projectile, and  to make that quantity needs 1631bs.  of cotton. A German 42-centimeter  howitzer requires a bale of cotton to  make a single firing charge, so it  will be seen, that the permission to  ship cotton from the States to Germany will cost the Allies many a  thousand of its bravest sons.  According to an American source  the Germans are turning out submarines with the rapidity of a  sausage machine, but as a matter of  fact they are even behind the Czar's  navy in the number of such craft,  Germany possessing 30 at the outbreak of war, and the Russians 39.  France, always strong in the possession of small craft has 81, while  the United Kingdom comes next  with 72. By the middle of summer  the number of submarines flying the  flags of the Allies will number upwards.of 211, and if Italy decides to  take a hand in the game it will add  another 18 to that number.  Commenting on the personality of  the kaiser, the Manchester Guardian says: "CeVtain instability was  from the first the weakest point in  the kaiser's character. He is not  the man to stand against the stream  when it got beyond control. We  must admit an element of personal  tragedy in a career of many years'  standing for peace, only to culminate in an act which opened the  wickedest aggression of modern  history."  Although it was in November  that the people on one of the West  Indian islands were reported to have  picked up wreckage marked Karlsruhe, it was only the other day that  the Admiralty ventured the opinion  that she had, been destroyed by an  internal explosion. If such is the  case there now remains but a single  ship flying the kaiser's naval flag on  the sea, and she is the converted  merchant ship, Crown Prince William. Of course this does not refer to submarines.  Prince Kropotkin, author of the  book, "Fields, Factories and Workshops," told the people of the  United Kingdom that there was no  reason whatever why they should  not be able to make Jtheir country  self-sustaining in the matter of foodstuffs. The area of "idle" land  over there is about 17,000,000 acres  or equivalent to the combined area  of Denmark, Holland and Belgium.  Most of us were under the impression that our cousins in Oregon  had followed the lead of the "dry"  states and gone and done likewise.  Such, however., is scarcely the case,  as any man over 21 years of age,  can stock his home every month  with 24 bottles of beer and two  quarts of whisky.  A New  Yorker,  who is   not   too  neutral to say a word for  Britain,  has sent to  a Toronto   friend  some  rather  startling   information   as   to  the   operations  of   German   incen-  daries and other agents in the'United States.    The factory of Jbhn A.  Roebling  company,   Trenton,  New  Jersey, was burned by*an incendiary  while the company was completing  an  order for  barbed   wire  for  the  French government.  He   adds   that,   following   other  outrages vupon  the sea, the mutiny  upon the American Red Cross ship,  the burning of a ship  carrying cavalry   horses   for  the   British,    the  stranding oi an Italian ship off Bermuda   and the   burning of  Italian  cavalry horses, opens up   the grave  question of the danger of employing  Germans or German sympathisers at  all in connection with the numerous  and important contracts for supplies  for the allies.  .    An even more startling fact than  the Roebling  fire  is   the  assertion  that   German   spies -are  interfering  with cable communication. "Much,1';  he says, "is done under the guise pf  alleged censorship, which   is purely  malicious interference, without  any  reason to justify it.   During the past  week, out of sixteen   prepaid   cable  messages sent   from   New  York by  friends   of  mine  to   England,   nine  were.delivered and seven fell by the  way.    Yet   all  referred  to supplies  and food stuffs to be furnished to the  allies.  The hand of the German spy in  this work is evident, but how to  catch him is the problem."  warn  Answering a question in the  House of Commons, as to how  many spies had been shot in England since war commenced, the under secretary for war replied that  there had only been one.  Wild and hysterical are the prophecies floating around as to the  result of .the forthcoming elections.  In certain local quarters, the  strength of the next Oppositisn is  to be just "sweet sixteen." The  Pioneer's estimate is to divide that  figure by two and substract two  from the result.  Not a few statesmen within the  empire have gone out of their way  to repudiate principles held only a  few years previously. To such  names as those of Gladstone, Bea-  cons.field and Chamberlain must be  added that of Laurier, the only difference between the latter and former  three lying in the fact that Laurier  could change his tune within a year  or two, while the others weighed  the pros a.nd cons' of the question  for sometimes twenty years. On the  matter of free trade Sir Wilfrid  hrfv always been very wobbly as'the  following two extracts from a couple  of,his speeches will show:  At Winnipeg, 1895���"I come before you   tonight   to   preach to you  this new gospel of free trade.    I de  nounce to you the policy  of protection as bondage, yes bondage,  and  The expression, "They say I'm  no damned good," or "I know I've  been a rotter," has been frequently  heard of late by sergeants in Old  Country recruiting depots, as some  well-dressed young fellow took the  oath to serve in Kitchener's army.  The Liberals throughout the pro  vince demanded that the government dissolve the legislature and  appeal to the people. It will be  noted that the Liberals on the floor  of the House did not join in the request.   -^- * ;   The mountain of copper which  was "discovered" at Newport, B.C.,  now turns out to be the usual fake  that attends the discovery of a  "mountain" of ore.  SYNOPSIS OF COAL  MINING REGULATIONS  Goal mining rights of the Dominion,  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the Northwest Territories and in a portion of the  Province of British Columbia, may be  leased for a term of twenty-one years  at an annual rental of $1 an acre. Not  more than 2,560 acres will be leased to  one applicant.  Application for a lease must be made  by the applicant in person to the  Agent or Sub-Agent of the district in  which the rights applied for are situated.  In surveyed territory the land must  be described by sections, or legal subdivisions of sections, and in unsur-  veyed territory the tract applied for  shall be staked out by the applicant  himself.  Each application must be accompanied by a fee of $5 which will be re  funded if the rights applied for are not  available, but not otherwise. A royalty shall be paid on the merchantable  output of the mine at the rate of five  cents per ton.  The person operating the mine shall  furnish the Agent with sworn returns  accounting for the full quantity of  merchantable coal mined and pay the  royalty thereon. If the coal mining  rights are not being operated, such returns should be furnished at least once  a year.  The lease will include the coal mining  rights only, but the lessee may be permitted to purchase whatever available  surface rights may be considered  necessary for the working of the mine  at the rate of $10.00 an acre.  For full information application  should be made to the Secretary of the  Department of the Interior, Ottawa,  or to any Agent or Sub-Agent of Dominion Lands.  W. W. CORY,  Deputy Minister of the Interior.  N.B.���Unauthorized publication of  this advertisement will not be paid for.  ���30690.

Published Every  Saturday MornInfi:  wmmmmsm  Boundary District of British Columbia  RICH   IN   MINERAL,   AGRICULTURAL AND   LUMBERING  POSSIBILITYES-  A MOST PROMISING FIELD FOR THE INVESTOR.  Probably no district in the Dominion of Canada possesses so great an array of  potentialities as the above. The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineraliferous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are more than surface indications  of the presence of coal.      ^.  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretches are among the richest in the province, arid what is of great  importance, easily accessable to river and railway. There is scarcely a square mile of  it that is not either equipped with high tension wires, or which could not be reached  by the expenditure of the smallest outlay. Not the least attraction from the point of  view of the investor, is the sites for water power, which abound in this district.  just at present an immense amount of interest is being directed to the recent  free gold discovery in Greenwood, while in the same district is to be seen one of the  best equipped free gold properties in the west, a not inconsiderable asset in these days  of industrial'depression and shrinkage of gold reserves. It is in this district where is  situated the Phoenix and Grand Forks properties of the Granby Consolidated, together with those of the British Columbia Copper company. In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sidfcs, are acres of crown-granted mineral claims, all  awaiting, the advent of the investor. The title deeds to these properties, thanks to a  beneficent series of mining laws, are unimpeachable, and if proof-is wanted of the  statement, let us point to the almost entire absence of mining litigation in the courts  of the province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWSNG CENTRE  The possibilities of the Boundary as an ^agricultural and fruit-growing centre  are also worthy of investigation, and a visit to some of its spendidly equipped orchards will prove a revelation to the stranger. The highways throughout the Boundary makes this section of the province the motorists paradise, millions having been  spent on the construction of government roads.  No locality is better served with railroads than  the Boundary district.    At  present this section. is served  by two of the greatest systems on the continent, the  ,C. 'P.-.R.' and Great Northern companies, while within a few months the route to the  Pacific coast will be commercially curtailed by the opening of the new K. V. V.  branch of the former.  www  mmm^rn  ���4^ ffHE   PIONEER;    PSQENIX,    BRITISHCOLUMBIA.

When the order for  the seizure of all arms was first issued, the police were only able to  lay hands on a dozen, although it  was known that every shack contained two or more rifles.

If the 29 dreadnoughts of  the British navy were sent on an  eight-hour full-power coal-burning  run they would consume 4320 tons  of fuel, running up a bill of some  $15,000. If a single dreadnought  battle squadron of eight ships were  ordered to steam at full speed for  24 hours "and to fire each gun and  torpedo tube once, the cost- to the  nation would be approximately one  million dollars, allowing nothing for  the depreciation of material. '  Sixty-five thousand dollars seems  a big sum for the British authorities  to spend on the furnishing, etc., of  Donnihgton Hall, 1 which is to be  the detention "prison" in England  for captured German officers.      But  after all, if it is the means of awak-  ��ning a, reciprocal sentiment in the  hearts of.the Prussians in their  treatment of our own Canadian officers who may fall into their hands,  the money will be well spent.

She had passed the allotted j  It is a remarkable fact that, at-a  time when domestic cpntroyersies  have ceased in face of the great  peril, the teetotal campaign should  have been renewed with more virulence than ever before.     v  It is the old indiscriminate'campaign against any beverage which  contains an appreciable amount of  alcohol, regardless of its dilution, or  of any other elements which distinguish one kind of alcoholised beverage from another kind. That also  is a remarkable fact; for it shows at  once the unreasonable character of  the agitation." ������:.'"���  The suppression of Vodka in Russia, and of Absinthe in France, are  quoted as parallel cases with the  proposed suppression of all kinds of  fermented and distilled beverages in  Britain. This discloses a most unwarrantable confusion of thoughti-  It shows a misconception of the  word Temperance.  Vodka is a fiery spirit, drunk neat,  and so often drunk to excess. Absinthe is a deleterious compound.  With all forms of spirit drinking  there is a danger of over-stepping  moderation, unless the drinker keeps  a guard over his potations.  But such criticisms do not apply  to Ale or any other fermented liquors  of low, alcoholic strength*. They are_  mild and wholesome, and a person  must drink them to gluttonous excess before-he -can become intoxicated by them.  As the Chancellor of the Excheqr  uer says, beer in alcoholic strength  "is just a little above ginger ale."  Throughout the world -and throughr  out the history of the world, mankind has demanded some stimulant  property in its liquid food���even the  tea drinker want it. The desire is  natural and innocent. It is not to  be crushed as essentially evil, but  rather to be guided in such a manner  as will eliminate the chances of  abuse. '  We should, therefore, encourage)  the use of a beverage'which, whije  providing the desired .stimulant,'.will  provide it in such a diluted form as  will remove the danger of excesses  beverage which will at the same,time  be palatable and contain healthful  properties. Ale and Stout fulfil  these conditions.  "Beer," an eminent authority ha��  delared, "is the_only safe drink." It  is the national beverage of Englishmen. It is pure; for the materials  of its   manufacture,   and   the  con-  ured give it, beyond doubt, a purity  which no other beverage can claim.  It contains nourishment; it facilitates the digestion of other nutri-  ment; it has tonic properties. The  alcohol in modern beer is present in  only just sufficient quantity to entitle  it to rank as an alcoholic beverage  at.all.. ' ���'     ;'���";. "* -';������" .'/������������  Beer, therefore, is pre-eminently  the temperance drink.  The extent of drunkenness in this  country at the present time is gross-'  ly exaggerated; and investigation of  ���uch drunkenness as there is would  show that only a negligible part of  it was due to the drinking cf beer.  It is, in another view, worth remembering that the Chancellor of  the Exchequer has raised moderate  beer-drinking to a patriotic height.  Mr. Lloyd George (making good his  words) says "Every half-pint that a  man drinks he will be contributing  to the carrying on of the war."  If we can't go the front we can  help our country (and\.our own well-  being) by changing our cocoa and  ginger beer into ale. .:"���'.
