WW C.  Murdock  Mclntyre,  proprietor   of  the Palace livery,  returned  late last  week from a prospecting trip  to  Calgary, Edmonton and   Prince  Rupert,  spending a few days at the latter place.  Mr. Mclntyre is not quite decided, but  will probably take a shipment of horses  to Vancouver or Prince Rupert late in  the fall. ,       .......  Speaking to the Pioneer man, ofthe  new Grand Trunk Pacific terminus,  Mr. Mclntyre says it will no doubt  have a great future, but its present is  an uninviting one. The townsite itself is as yet a bog, the land having a  thick mossy surface, and the landscape  of the embryo city resembles an Indian  village in a march. There are no  houses, but hundreds of tents are  scattered about in all directions, while  it is almost impossible to walk, without  waders, there being no sidewalks or  paths of any kind. The- essential requirements of a person going to Prince  Rupert are an oiled suit, a tent and a  canoe���as well as.a good supply of  cash, with which he can afford to take  a suburban camp residence for 'some  months, until the townsite lots -are on  the market.  The only hotel accommodation is  filled to overflowing. There is a large  new company hotel, but it will not be  opened until the townsite is thrown  open, perhaps some time this fall.  Prices for supplies are high, and the  one or two general stores there do a  big business.  It rained almost continually during  his stay, and' navigation at Prince  Rupert in any direction was invariably  via the water route, as almost any  point could be reached, in- a canoe.  Mr. .Mclntyre think6r however, that  when the townsite is surveyed and  drained, it will be an excellent one,  but the mossy nature ofthe soil holds  the water ntrprrsent.-���������������--���  '���'��� The first horses seen in the new  town were taken in two weeks ago by  the. rail way contractors, and so treacherous is the soil that planks had to be  laid from the boat to the stable for the  horses to walk on.  But the outside world knows more  about Prince Rupert than the people  living there. There is no apparent de  velopment, and the residents greet new  arrivals quizzically to learn what the  latest news of their place is���or to discover what they themselves as citizens  have been doing to make their city a  metropolis. The controlling heads of  the "new city of the west" live far  from the G.T.P. terminus. The great  ideal survey, grand Waldorf Astoria,  great chartered banks, nnd forty-story  blocks that are pictured on the Prince  Rupert landscape to the outside people,  are but dreams in the imagination of  financial and realty agents in offices  many miles distant.  There is yet no appearance of  practical development to people visiting the town. Every morning scores  of boats with survey parties and  prospectors leave for up and down  the Skeena river and its tributaries, but  no information can be elicited from  them as to the objects or results of  their searches���they are filed with the  controlling heads elsewhere.  From Vancouver to Prince Rupert  is a pleasant 50-hours' ride on the  boat, the route being inland the greater  part of the way, and only touches the  ocean in two or three places. Boats  run from Vancouver every second day,  and each is heavily loaded with fortune-  seekers bound for the much-advertised railway terminus. It is estimated  that already over a thousand men are  now looking for openings in the town  where there are none, and with little  prospects of any until townsite lots are  opened.  The gateway to the city is rather an  attractive one, and it is proposed to  build a wharf three miles in length  along the water's edge. There are  frequent heavy fogs, however, that may  be somewhat of a hindrance as a port  for ocean liner, entering. It is stated  that townsite lots will be held at  $2,000 when placed on the market.  While there Mr. Mclntyre met  James McCague and Wm. Hannah,  former residents of Phoenix, and states  that they have prospects of something  good in the future city.  Mr. Mclntyre paid a visit to the  Empire office to get seeing the exchange  copy of the Pioneer, but Editor  Houston stated that his copy of the  Pioneer was so much in demand it was  invariably stolen from the office before  he got reading it himself.  Alex Strachan left on Thursday,  with California as his destination.  Chas. Sidney Johnston, city engineer  for Greenwood, was here Thursday.  Mrs. D. Gunn and Mrs. I.

PRINCIPAL SIMPSON  BUYS ORCHARD LAND  Secured 26 Acres of Valuable  Land at Grand Forks.  While spending the Easter vacation  in Grand Forks, John Simpson, principal of Phoenix public school, took  occasion to investigate the land opportunities in the valley, which resulted in  him securing 26 acres of splendid fruit  land of the old Newby ranch from Neil  McCallum and James McArdle, of  Grand Forks.  For the choicest part of this land,  which is of unusual richness, Mr.  Simpson paid $r75 per acre; for the  balance, which is pasture land, he paid  a much lower figure. The land extends from the new hundred-acre  nursery now being started by Messrs.  Tweedle & Brown, to Ward's lake,  from which it is separated by the  C.P.R. track. Three railways���Great  Northern, Canadian Pacific, and Spokane and British Columbia���border  on the land, and it is within 15  minutes walk from the C.P.R. station.  The land is entirely cleared, and has  been cultivated for several years, producing such heavy crops of wheat that  the scythe had to be used in some  places for cutting purposes, the heaviness of the crop causing the grain to  lodge.  In purchasing this land just when he  did tbe Phoenician principal is said to  have stolen a march on a prominent  business man of Grand Forks, who  was also after the same land.  Just what he purposes doing with  his newly acquired property Mr. Simpson has not made known, but he has  no doubt secured some choice fruit  land, and during the summer vacation  will superintend its cultivation as a  fruit ranch.

Last Sunday afternoon a distressing  accident occured in the Granby mines,  ���the  first  in   many months  in  this  camp���by which Christopher B. Martin   and   Kingsley  Greenloiigh Smith  lost their lives.    No one was a witness  to the fatality, so that it will   probably  never be known  exactly  how it happened, though   it  seems  evident that  they/fell from the bench oh which they  were working in Slope  No. 61, on the  300-foot   level,   going  down about 25  feet  to the  muck pile  below.    They  were found by Charles Nelson, mucker-  boss, and William Tatham,  shiftbossV  aud  others and   although  a  cry  had  been heard .immediately  before, when  they were finally found life was instinct.  Martin and Smith   were said to   be  the best  of miners,  and had gone to  work on the four o'clock shift, the fatality happening about 5.15   p.m.    Mar  tin  was well known all over the Boun  dary,   having   been   here   five  or   six  years, in different camps.    He worked  with John Swanson   19  years  ago   in  Michigan, and also worked for him on  his first:job in the Boundary.    He was  a   married  man, the  wedding  having  taken place but five or six months ago  in Fairview, his wife   being yet in   her  teens.    He was a native of New Zealand, and 40 years of age.  Smith had been employed here two  or three years, and was a native of  England, being 48 years old. Both  had been members of Phoenix Miners'  Union No. 8, and Martin was also a  member of the Eagles.  The coroner's jury was empanelled  Wednesday��� by A. S.-Black, the-coro-  ner, consisting of the following:  Andrew Johnson, Joseph Tromble'y,  Murdock Mclntyre, J. L. Martin; C.  H. Flood and\~vVVBV!wiilcipx'.',.,,'Tfae  bodies were viewed and the' scene of  the accident was visited,in the No. 61  stope at the 300 level of the mine, and  testimony was taken for about six  hours. The company was represented  by David Whiteside, of Grand Forks,  and the widow of Martin by J. P. Mc-  Leod, of Greenwood.  The men had been working on Sunday afternoon on a bench, some 25  feet above the muck pile below, and  ���in some way had evidently lost their  balance and been precipitated below,  possibly one dragging the other down.  There were no witnesses to the  fatality, but the shiftboss, Wm. Tatham,  and muckerboss, Charles Nelson, who  had found the remains, were called  among others, to tell what they could  about the matter. Mine Inspector  James McGregor, who was here, was  also called, and G. B. Larson and  Murdock Campbell, barmen who worked  on the opposite shift from deceased in  the same locality.  The last two thought the bench had  disappeared and fallen since they had  worked there on Saturday, but their  shiftboss, Henry W. Heidman, stated  that, while there may have been  some rock coming down, the bench  on which the deceased worked was  still there. The jury brought in a verdict of death from accidentally falling  at the place refered to.  Largest Funeral In Phoenix  Wednesday afternoon the funeral  was held of Martin and Smith, and it  was the largest funeral ever held in  this city. The Granby mines were  closed as well as nearly every business  concern in the city. Rev. Leech-Porter, Church of England clergyman, officiated, the services being held in Miners'  Union opera house, no other place being large enough. The building had  many hundieds at the services, the  Eagles' quartette rendering appropriate  music. The obsequies took place under the auspices of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and ofthe Miners' Union,  there being about 850 persons in the  funeral cortege as it wound its way to  the Eagles' cemetery and the city cemetery, located a mile or two below  Phoenix. Members of both orders  turned out in larger numbers than on  any former occasion.  wood,  have gone  ranch near Marcus.  on a visit to their  Martin Burrell will deliver an address  at a farmers' institute meeting in Grand  Forks next Tuesday.  Constable Jenson is a new appointee  at Eholt, by the provincial government.  He is spending some time at government headquarters at Nelson.  P. Burns & Co. have installed a new  refrigerator plant at Grand Forks with  a capacity of two cars or forty tons,  the largest one in the interior except  the one at Nejson. The plant is oper  ated by electricity.  Greenwood's board of trade is preparing a pamphlet on the resources of  the Boundary which will be an excellent advertisement of this section.  Some 10,000 copies will be printed in  good shape, and distributed where they  will do the most good.  P. Burns & Co., Ltd., have erected  temporary quarters on the site of their  slaughterhouse recently destroyed, a  couple of miles south of Greenwood,  and are now doing business there as:  usual. J. B. Desrosiers had charge of  putting up the new building, he having also recently completed the installation of a refrigerating and ice making plant in the Grand Forks branch,  similar to that put in Phoenix over a  year ago. ".'"������'���  Special Train to Rotslaod.  On Monday, May 25, Phoenix  Lodge No. 47,.better known as the  Scandinavian Aid and Fellowship  Society,-will charter a special train to  proceed to Rossland, where a friendly  visit will be made to the Rossland  lodge ofthe .satpe^ordei^bj^^eing  the only ones in British Columbia.  The Rossland lodge is preparing to  hold a big picnic that day, in which  they will be joined by their Phoenix  brethren, the train also taking a goodly  contingent from Grand Forks, Greenwood and Trail. It is expected that  at least 100 will take advantage of the  special rates that will thus be offered,  and later a visit may be made to Phoenix by members of the Rossknd lodge.  TIP TOP IN  GOOD ORE  New Company Being  Organized.  Drifting Proceeding at the 125-  Foot Level.  One of the mines in the high grade  belt that has been steadily working  along for some months, having little  said about it, is the Tip Top, in Skylark camp. The property is located in  the vicinity of the Bay, Mavis, Skylark, and other well known claims> in  that camp, and so far the development  has been decidedly encouraging.  The main perpendicular shaft of the  Tip Top is now down about 15b feet,  and drifting has been started at the  125-foot level, the drifting being now  in about 30 feet. Those in charge say  that the face is in ore of a good grade,  arid-they are confident- that -they have  a property in the.. Tip Top that, with  adequate development, will join the  steady shipping column. (."���';  H. V. Fuller, one of the large owners  of the Bay, which has shipped such  valuable carloads of gold ore, is also  interested in the Tip; Top, and is now  in. the .east, in connection, with .Tip  Top matters. A new, company is  being formed at Lincoln, Nebraska, to  work the property and secure the  capital' necessary for development.  The company will : likely have a  moderate capital, of. about $25,000.  The Tip Top is equipped with an  electric hoist, and the mining can be  done in an economic and expeditious  manner. Seven men are now employed on the property, two shifts  being steadily worked.  PRESENTATION  TO W.'B. WILLCOX  D. McDou.all  In  Goldlleld ��� Phoenix  Looks Good.  SHI  Duncan McDougall, a property owner  in Phoenix, and up to a few weeks ago  a resident for a longtime in this camp,  got the wanderlust, and started west  and south. Writing to a friend here,  Mr. McDougall says he stopped in  Seattle and other places���in fact, was  in a number of camps���but in no place  did he find as many men employed as  in Phoenix, compared to the resident  population of each. He had an opportunity to go to Alaska, but a 275  mile walk to Fairbanks did not look  good to him, even to secure work, and  he trekked further southwards. He  does not speak very favorably of Gold-  field, where he is now. and did not  expect to remain there for any extended  length of time.  Late Editor of Pioneer the Re-  A pleasant event  occured .at.; the  meeting of King Edward Lodge No.  36, A. F. and A. M., in  their temple  on   Thursday  evening,   when   W.   B.  Willcox, late editor of the Pioneer, who  had been treasurer of the lodge for the  past three terms, was made the .recipient of a gold chain  and locket.    The  locket bore the Masonic emblem  and  was  beautifully  engraved  as   follows:  [ "Presented to Bro.  W. B. Willcox  by  members of King Edward  Lodge No.  36,  A.   F.   and A. M., April   1908."  The presentation was made  on behalf  of the  members   by   the   worshipful  master, T.   Roderick,  who  in  kindly  words expressed their regret in his departure from Phoenix and  asked him  to accept the gift as a slight  token of  the esteem  in  which he  is held by  members of the lodge.   Mr.  Willcox,  who was' taken by suprise, replied in a  few  well-chosen words,   thanking  the  members for their  kind  expression of  good fellowship, which  he would prize  very highly, and   it   would ever  recall  the pleasant associations  of King Edward  Lodge though   he   be   distant  from Phoenix.

Every dwelling house ought to be  thoroughly aired.every day, and those  who can afford- sufficient bedclothing  to keep them warm at night ought to  sleep with their bedroom windows  open. If the open window habit were  commoner there would be fewer  coughs and colds; for colds are in  a great majority of cases produced by  breathing impure air. The main  reason why people are troubled with  colds less in summer than in winter is  that while sleeping they breathe fresh  air in summer and tainted air in winter.

Grand Forks Gazette:    W. B. Willcox has   sold   the   Phoenix Pioneer to  T. Alfred Love of Winnipeg.    Since it  was founded by Mr. Willcox, eight and  a half years ago, it has built up a reputation   for  itself second   to no  other  weekly in the province.    It is an easy  matter   to  follow the development of  mining in   the   Boundary during   that  period by   taking  up files of the  Pioneer.    The news  it has given has  always  been   authentic,   and   its  items  have been widely  quoted by  mining  journals.  Lowery's Ledge: T. A. Love has  bought the Pioneer from W. B. Wilcox.

THE MINER needs the books for  the facts it gives him regarding Geology, Mining, Copper Deposits and  Copper Mines.  THE METALLURGIST needs the  book for the facts it gives him regarding copper milling, leaching, smelting  and refining.  THE COPPER" CONSUMER  needs the book for every chapter it  contains. It tells what, and explains  how and why.  THE 1NTESTOR IN COPPER  SHARES cannot afford to be without  it. The Copper Handbook gives  statistics and general information on  one hand, with thousands of detailed  mine descriptions on the other, covering the copper mines of the entire  world, and the 40 pages of condensed  statistical tables alone are worth more  than the price of the book to each audi  every owner of copper mining shares.

He stated, also, that  matters were getting worse and not  better. While it is impossible to substantiate these figures, yet it seems certain that the number of unemployed is  abnormally large, and the prospects at  present are not very encouraging.  The -March copper production by  ���he Butte district was nearly ro.ooo,-  000 pounds more than that*of- February, the total for March being 18,-  1*7.25�� against 8,438,750 in February.

The old plan, and which was  thought to be quite up to date, consisted of running a long truck full of  moulds under the converter and filling  them one by one, then running the  trucks to the rear, prying the copper  out, allowing it several hours to cool,  then handling it laboriously up to the  car door.  The hew machine is constructed on  the plan of a merry-go-round, on the  circle frame of which are fixed 29  moulds. The moulten copper is brought  from the converters by the big crane  in a large ladle and set over the rim of  this wheel or mould system. The  wheel is then revolved under the hands  of a skilful engineer. As fast as one  mould is filled, the engineer moves  the other under the spout. On the  opposite side of the wheel from the  spout there is a tank of water, and  when the full moulds arrive at this  point, they have cooled sufficiently to  form a casing over the metal. If not,  a jet of cold water assists in cooling it,  and then the bars are automatically  dumped into this tank, in the bottom  of which is an elevator system which  carries them over and lands them on a  platform on a level with, and within a  few feet of tbe car door. The bars go  plunging into the water every ten  seconds, and usually glowing hot the  effect is of rare interest to a student of  mechanics.  Oily Two Bits'Per Maatk.
