The city  has a population of 1,600,  and possesses first-class  hotels, opera hou&e, schools  ?/  SIXTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C., SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1915  Number 42  Death of Hart-McHarg  Lieutenant-Colonel Hart-McHarg  of the Seventh  Battalion, who Was  among the killed in the recent fighting near Ypres,  was well-known  to  many old-time  Rosslanders now resident  in   the   Boundary.     He was  formerly in command  of  the Rossland company of the  Rocky  Moun  tain   Rangers,  and   as    a   sergeant  served   with    distinction    with   the  Royal Canadian  regiment in South  Africa, where he was present at the  surrender of Cronje  at Paardeberg.  As a rifle shot he gained international   distinction    and   frequently   was  among the representatives  of Canada at Bisley and in the competitions  for   the   Palma   trophy,   in   both  of  which   his   skill   with   the   rifle was  generally admired.      He was lawyer  by profession   and for   many   years  had    practiced    in    Vancouver,    in  which city he was actively associated  with  the  6th Duke  of Connaught's  Rifles as major.   On his return from  South Africa he chronicled  the part  taken   by   the   Royal   Canadians^ in  his   book   "From   Quebec   to   Pretoria." \  Run Over By Train  The extreme danger of children  making a playground of depots and  railroad yards was distressingly illustrated on Tuesday of this week,  at Grand Forks, when little Alfred  Galipeau, the eight-year-old son of  Mr. and Mrs. Galipeau, of that city,  was run over by the incoming Spokane'passenger train. The boy. was  playing in the yard and somehow  got his foot fastened in the frog of a  switch and was unable to free himself before the cars reached him and  severed,rphje,-of,hjs. legs between the  knee and the ankle. He was rushed  with all speed by auto to the hospital, and according to the latest report was making satisfactory progress. His escape from death is  considered very remarkable, and but  for the fact that be threw his body  arid other leg well out of the way,  the mishap would have been attended with fatal consequences..  Funeral at-Spokane  * The   following   particulars,   concerning  the  death   and  funeral   of  Mrs. VV.   Humphreys, who died on  April 13,   while oh a visit to Spokane,   reached here a few days ago,  and reveals the fact that her death  followed closely after ah operation.  performed at the Sacred Heart hospital. >    The   funeral  took   place on  April 18th, in the presence of a very  large assemblage of mourners, many  of whom  knew the deceased in her  home in the old country.     The pallbearers were members of the Spokane   Daughters   of   Rebekah,   and  conspicuous   among   the   numerous  floral  tributes  were  wreathes  from  the Spokane lodges  of Freemasons,  Oddfellows, Daughters of  Rebekah  Encampment,   Welsh   Church   congregation,  John   Hughes,   Mr.   and  Mrs.   Hugh   Jones,   and   the   Hope  and Imperial Social  Clubs  of Spokane, besides an array of tokens from  Phoenix sent by the following:   The  Woman's   Patriotic   Society,    King  Edward   Lodge,    A.F.   and   A.M.;  Mining Notes of British Columbia  The test smelter being.built at the;  Standard mill to try the French zinc"  separation process, will likely be'  given a trial run before the end of.  this month.���Slocan Record.

Franklin Camp  According to  a correspondent at  Franklin camp, the weather has-been  phenomenally   fine   all   winter,   and  work which in   other years  has had  to be discontinued on account of the  snow,hasproceeded merrily throughout the fall and winter season.    The  number of men at work on prospects  has also been  much  more than usual, and. these are   now   being  augmented   by the arrival   of  the vanguard   of  the   summer   crowd.      A  spirit of optimism  prevails, and the  future prospects for the camp are regarded by everyone as exceedingly  bright,   as   many   of  the properties  bid fair to be of more than ordinary  merit.     A deal  for   the purchase, of  the Union   mine   by   a Nevada com  pany is being negotiated.  Gold bearing quartz has recently  been discovered on Isaac creek near  the C.P.R. tracks between Revel-  stoke-and Arrowhead, and several  claims have been staked. The snow-  is pretty well gone in that region,1;  and prospecting is going merrily on.j  Capt. Rogers, the eminent-mining  man, who is heavily interested in the  Home.stake Gold Mining company,-  is expected in Cranbrook this week.  Immediately upon his arrival dei  velopment work is expected to'start,  when a force of men will be put to:  work.���Herald.  The Continental Development Co,  has resumed operations at theRocher  Deboule.mine at New Hazeltonj employing from 50 to" 75 men at the  property. This may be increased as  the work progresses. The one bunkers at, the mine ; are all filled, and  the bunkers, at Prince Rupert are  read}' now to receive ore. Satisfactory    arrangements    are   made   for  transportation, and the ore   will all  be sent to Granby.  W. E.:. Cameron, who until the  suspension of operations after the  outbreak of war in Europe last  summer had charge of the several  Slocan properties in Slocan district  for the Consolidated Mining and  Smelting cempany, is now superintendent at the Rambler-Cariboo  silver-lead mine in the McGuigan  basin, which mine was the first in  the Slocan districtat which important  deep-level development work was  done.  The Lucky Jim does not appear  to be able to get clear of one difficult)' before another overlaps with a  new location. In fact, the Lucky  Jim is the most successful trouble  gatherer in the province. It should  be called the Bill HohenzoIIern. It  has had all sorts of misfortunes-���  over-stocking, wine,  Manitoba poli-  Electrolytic Copper, 18^c.  Copper is remarkably   strong and  such large premiums are being paid  for immediate delivery, that it is impossible to give anything better than  approximate   quotations.    Lake   is  19 to 21 cents, one sale at the latter  price   having   been   reported,   and  electrolytic   is   18   to   18^ cents a  pound.    It is now clearly  apparent  that the world's available supplies of  refined copper has been   exhausted,  and   this   means   that  the  world's  consumption duringthe eight months  since the war began has been in the  aggregate equivalent to full volume,  while curtailment   of production  in  the same period has left about 400,-  000,000   pounds    unmined   in   the  ground which otherwise would have  come into the market. , The traders  now feeling the effect of this, and it  is reflected in the high   prices being  paid.  The situation at present is such  that copper prices may possibly advance to 25 cents or higher, this de-  ticians,     Loperism,     private    cars,' pending entirely  upon  how   rapidly  consumption  mortgages, bonded indebtedness, incompetence, extravagance, and d-���d  little intelligent development. Even  in its most prosperous period it was  decided to run a deep-level tunnel.  With ordinary luck and a little horse  sense the tunnel would have followed  the ledge and,, possibly j paid for itself with the ore taken out, but the  fates decided upon a crosscut tunnel  and poor old Lucky Jim got another  jam. Now it is in the hands of the  court   .and   the   lawyers.���Record.  its consumption in ammunition-  making increases. The most reliable  advices state that the allied armies  of Europe are in very great need of  enormously increased ammunition  supplies, and an advance of 10 or 20  cents per pound in the price of copper  would not cause any curtailment of  consumption for such purposes.���  Boston Commercial.  German Paper's Demand  The government of Canada is compounding a felony by permitting the  publication of the ultra pro-german  newspaper, Der Courier.  This barefaced transplanted advocate of Prussian kulture,   has   the   effrontery to  demand the immediate release of all  German and Austrian prisoners confined    in    Canadian    concentration  camps, and  also the retu   . to them  of all confiscated arms.   In the same  breath,   so   to  speak,   it   wants   to  know of what  is  the  use of all the  German societies and associations if  "we do not devote them   to our interests."    According to Der Courier  these "interests" are to be advanced  by the election to parliament of men  of German blood  and speech.    The  worst thing about the affair is that  the Ottawa authorities actually contemplate yielding to the demand for  the release  of alien   enemies, and a  perusal  of the  articles  side by side  with the   accounts   of the  Prussian  butchery of Canadian wounded and  their illtreatment of British prisoners,  forces   one   to   the   conclusion  that  either the  Canadians of Regina are  ,a strangely apathetic set, or the editor and  staff  of Der  Courier must  possess an unfathomable faith in the  protective    power    of   the   Regina  police force.

We aim to fill your orders  so as to avoid mistakes, and in so doing  gain your confidence, which we are only  too glad to hold, and by so doing we feel  that we are friends, and friendship and  confidence are two things that are bound  to work out to our mutual advantage.  When you place your order with us, let it  be with trust, and that it will be filled with  the utmost care.

The latter is  drawn to a scale of three miles to  the inch. All of them will prove of  the greatest value to the landseeker.

Why should the Germans growl  because they are to be starved out?  It is a purely German recipe. During the Franco-German war they  took t scores of strong places from  the French, but not one was taken  by assault���always by starvation.  We expected a good deal from  the soldiers of Canada, and they  in their turn have not disappointed  us.  What do the German-Americans  think of our "raw levies." now?  ���: '���  A nice tittle fake boom is being  worked up by the coast steamship  companies just now, another gold  strike of fabulous richness having  been "found'' in the north.  tion.

The part taken by Canada in this  war has received more sympathetic  support from prominent American  editors than from the leaders of the  Opposition at Ottawa.

Yet Sir Wilfrid caused to be  vetoedj-very act passed by the B.C.  legislature  that  had   as   its   object  tKe exclusion   of orientals from this  province.

It is   a well-known   fact   that more  Chinese   entered   British  Columbia  after" the Liberals   passed the $500  head tax  than   before   its adoption.  Something more drastic was needed,  and is  needed,   but there is no reason  for  us   to  look   for   any relief  to the Liberals of all people.

This  is a fine way to make a white British Columbia, in straight view of the  fact that this industry, like the fishing, was before its abolition, principally in the hands of the yellow race.

A High Seas Comedy  One of the most amusing episodes  in connection with the  career of the  Emden has just come  to light.     It  appears ^that    the   German    raider  put in at the Chagos islands in the  southern part * of the   Indian ocean,  j for the purpose of cleaning the hull  and taking on   water.     The island,  which  originally was Spanish,  is a  British possession with a population  of about five hundred, and as soon as  the vessel dropped anchor, the man  ager  of  the   island,   an   official   of  Spanish descent, started out to pay  a ceremonial visit, quite unaware of  the fact that war had been declared  some weeks before.   He in turn was  received with every courtesy, and in'  the  course  of a conversation   the  German  captain informed him they  were carrying out some manoeuvres  with  the   British" fleet.    They  dis  cussed the  prospect of civil war in  Ireland,  but Captain Mueller could  give the manager no information on  that subject.   The news of the death  of the   Pope  brought forth expres.  sions of sorrow from  the manager,  but his chief concern appeared to be  the state of affairs in Ireland.  The old man was charmed with  the spirit of courtesy shown him,  and begged the captain to come  ashore and allow him to do something in the line of hospitality, but  this was declined. "The manoeuvres were very important. My departure must not be delayed longer  than was necessary," explained the  naval officer. Diego Garcia regretted this. He would come again  but was afraid it was impossible  owing to a mishap to his. motor  boat. The captain was distressed  to hear of this and sent a couple of  engineers ashore to repair the vessel. This act was just as promptly  reciprocated by the natives cleaning  and scraping the Emden's hull and  the high seas comedy was further  continued by the German  warship  ,   Correspondents throughout Canada report  that the past winter has  been exceptionally mild.     In  most  of the provinces live stock have in  consequence come well through and  are  in   good   condition.     In  some  j>arts, notably in Saskatchewan, the  light  crops   of last   year rendered  feeding difficult, and animals at the  close of  the   winter  were thin.     In  these cases, however, matters would  have been much worse had the winter  been   of normal   severity.     An  early spring  was   anticipated,  and  .he prospects for the coming season  were  hopeful.     Farmers  in   consequence  were   advised   to   increase  their  seeded   acreage to the fullest  extent,-and their efforts were facilitated by the  large  amount  of fall  ploughing completed last year. ^  have    conveniently     forgotten    the  sailing away   with   a sackful ofthe  debts they owe to one or other of  the entente powers, and are likely  to keep on forgetting as long as the  stream of German gold keeps up.

The mountains throughout its entire length and breadth,  are almost without exception mineralifsrous, containing gold, silver, copper, iron and  other valuable ores, while in a few localities there are niore than surface indications  of the presence: of coal. . - .  FOREST AND MINERAL WEALTH  Its forest stretche. are among the richest in the province, and 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 ofthe 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, to-  gether with those of the British Columbia Copper company.    In the former camp, and  surrounding it for miles on all sides, 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  ofthe province.  AGRICULTURE AND FRUIT-GROWING 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 Boun-  dary 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.  The  Phoenix  Pioneer  has for 16 Years been recognized as the Mining  Medium of the Boundary  country.  In the matter of advertising, it reaches the  right kind of people, and  an iadvertisement in its  columns is certain of  quick and profitable results.        __���  In the matter of all  things pertaining to the  progress of the district it  is a reliable and trustworthy authority.

I  In the operations against the  Germans in East Africa, all the  horses have been stained with  stripes of permanganate of potash.  This makes them less of a mark for  the enemy's riflemen.

The residents of South Vancouver district have sent for advice to  Victoria as to what to do with the  pheasants which are playing havoc  with the gardens.

Opinion differ  as to the cause of death; some claim  it was due to starvation, brought  about by swallowing something it  couldn't chew."  Increased 40 Per Cent  Those who are convinced that the  way to temperance reform lies  along the pathway of reducing the  selling hours of hotels, ought to  consider, the statement made by  Lloyd-George, to, the effect that  "notwithstanding the curtailment  of the hours they are allowed to  keep open,'the receipts of the public  houses in the neighborhood of the  shipyards has greatly increased, in  some cases forty per cent."  Too True  The following true-to-life pen picture ofthe Canadian House of Commons appeared recently in the Outlook, one of the foremost of American hard-thinking journals:  "It is war time, and to the field  c f battle Canada has sent many of  1 er sons. Yet the discussion of the  issues of vital importance to the welfare of those sons, and perhaps to  he success of those battles, is here  being carried on in a spirit of bitterness that is strangely more reminis.  cent of the legislatures of America  than of the solemn   assemblages of  the European nations at war. There  seems an astounding  lack  of common    purpose���politics   in   all    its  worst brawling American fashion is  the dominating game.    The Whigs  and the Tories   of old, the   Protectionists  and   the   Free-traders,   the  Conservatives and   the   Liberals as  they prefer to  be  called, have   preferred to indulge in partisan warfare  rather than to  unite   in   a  common  stand   for   the   protection   of    the  country   and    for    the    successful  furtherance of that grimmer warfare  into which they so enthusiastically  plunged.    Postoffice and army scandals,  financial   instability, subservience to  the   'interests,' corruption,  are all   being  aired with   a political  venom   that  we  are   unfortunately  accustomed to associate with Wash-  ington and Albany.     Libelous accusations are" being  hurled back and  forth; graft,  even   treason is openly  charged.    Criticism   is  piling   high  on   both   sides  of the House  until  both parties realize the necessity for  calling a halt, and are predicting a  national election in the near future."
