 The largest coppnr mines in  the Dominion arc situated-  at Phoenix. Tho Granby  Co. employs 500 men, and  has a monthly pay roll of  over 850,000, while the Raw^  hide pay roll is $18,000.  Devoted to the Interest* of the Boundary Mining District  FOURTEENTH YEAR  PHOENIX, B.C;, SATURDAY, MAY 10, 1913  That $400 Reward  In February of last year the U.S.  postoffice, at.Oroville, Washington,  was broken into and the safe blown  open and-rifled.    The robbers afterwards made for Molson, where they  afterwards hired a team and buggy  and made tracks for British Columbia.     In the 'meantime the Provincial police throughout the Boundary  district  were  notified,   among   the  officers  told-off being   Geo. Stan-  field   of  Phoenix.    This  constable,  while in a livery barn, overheard a  conversation  which- he  considered  afforded him a  working clue, and  a few hours later  arrested a couple  of men   whom   he  regarded  as answering the description of the parties   wanted.     The  arrest,   which  was accomplished on this side of the  International    boundary   line,   was  quietly  made,   the  Phoenix   officer  coolly walking up behind  the fugi-  tives  and  telling    them   to   "keep  agotng  boys,  you are both under  arrest,   etc."    Evidently under  the  impression that the  officer had the  drop on them (he was unarmed) one  of .them remarked that "if it wasn't  for your gun you wouldn't find the  job so easy." - ">  Both the prisoners waived extradition and were handed over to the  cace of the sheriff of Oroville, who  later discovered that one of the culprits was an old offender, with a  peuetentiary record.  "Now the question arises. Who  is entitled to the standing reward of  $400 ($200 for each man) offered  by the United States government?  Will it be the Canadian officer who  followed a slender clue and arrested  the robbers single-handed in the  open country, ��� or the United States  -,police official who;* ,*boldly" arrested  . Itheirn- when" they*' were"' safe*' ihTtlhc  cells' of a British Columbia jail?; ���  Over  a   year   has   now  elapsed  since the incident, and if any reward  '  has been paid,, it. certainly . has not'  found its way into tbepocket of Mr.  CMining Notes of British Columbia  I        ���������! "  J. M. Short, of Jopliii, Mo. the  largest owner of zinc mines in the  world, was in Princeton recently on  his way to Tulameen and Leadville.  He could not reach, the camp Lead*  ville owing to. the , snow but will  come again when it is gone.  The future of Leadville is assured.  J. C. Reilly discovered the Mother-  lode. It is over thirty feet widV-  Reiliy and Jensen have established  a camp in four feet of snow,' arid  have got in five shots ��� oh the lode.  It opened suprisingly good.���<Simil-  kameen Star. ..  A.   W.   Davis,  geologist for the  Consolidated company, was in totfjn  the past week.    He had been ohvfa  trip to the Boundary' and - Similki-  meen inspecting work on   the company's holdings in  those  districts.  He had not heard particulars of trie  company's  deal    for    the ] Ottawa  mine, Slocan City, when . here,   aqd  only knew of the transfer through  reports   published    in ' the    newspapers.    On_,the   Lucky Thought,  recently  bonded  by  the  company,  buildings have been erected,   and  a  contract for driving a tunnel   let to  Erickson  & Johnson.     The tunnel  is already in between fifty and sixty  feet.���Slocan Record.  It is likely that the first shipment  of ore will be made from the Red  Elephant mine, on Hall creek, in the  Upper Duncan section by the  owners, J. W. Power and Hughie  McKay, during the coming summer.  borhood of'twenty or thirty tons,  the, idea being to give it a thorough  smelter test and also have tests  made that will indicate the best  method of treatment.���Kootenain.  .Wm, B. Dornberg, mining  man,  arrived in Rossland <on  Wednesday  from  Spokane,   on  a   visit  to  his  Rossland friends.   . Mr. Donberg  is  operating some claims in the  Summit    Camp    in , th'e    Similkameen  mining division.    The government  has started to build a  wagon   road  into  the  camp,  which will make it  easier to get in supplies.     He  and  associates are  running a  700  foot  Cross-cut  to  tap  the    ledge,    and  about'half of it is completed.     The  ledge" has two feet' of ore  on   the  foot wall that goes $125 to the  ton  and a foot of ore on  the hanging  wall that assays $100 to  the  ton.  The ledge is from eight  to  twenty  feet in width and has  been   drifted  on for  a    hundred  and  fifty  feet.  Where the drift ends the ore is of a  better grade  than    where  it    was  stated. Charles    Connell    the  veteran prospector, of this city, has  some claims that abut those being  operated by Mr. Dornberg. There  are many other promising properties in the camp, which promise to  become shippers when railway  transportation is furnished.���Rossland Miner,  The  tunnel   on ��� the   Wire  Gold  group  is  now  in  some 47 feet fol-  Eight Months' Hard Labor  The trial  of Fred  Mall and Geo.  Stoy, who were committed   for trial  on   March  29th,  charged   with  an  aggravated assault on Val. McDavis  in Phoenix, was held at Greenwood,  on Wednesday,  before  his   Honor,  Judge  Brown.     A.   S.    Black    of  Greenwood, appeared   for  the   accused., while C. .J.   Leggatt  of the  same city presented the case for the  Crown.       The   former   charge   of  aggravated  assault,  which   was at  first preferred, was enlarged to "assault causing actual  Lodily harm,"  this   latter offence  carrying  with it  a maximum sentence of three years'  imprisonment.    Counsel for the defence was quite unable to shake the  evidence of the only witness to the  assault, and   who was commended  by his Honor for her lucid account  of the affair.    Dr. W.   S.   Verrall  in giving evidence as to the extent  of the complainant injuries, expressed the opinion that the fractures to  the jaw could be caused  by a blow  with a naked fist.    In summing up,  the court thought.that Mr. McDavis  was   mistaken   in a  portion  of his  testimony,   while  he   doubted    the  account given by the prisoners.   He  sentenced    Hall   to   eight months'  hard labor and acquitted Stoy.  Hall  almost broke down when  he heard  the sentence.  IB   is  gfheafc  city  1,600,  first-class  house, schools  Number 43  Police Court Cases  Police Magistrate Mulligan, oii  Monday heard the case of Dominic  Sgro, against whom a charge of  using abusive language to a member of the Granby company's engineering staff was preferred. The"  accused was arrested while at work  in one of the stopes of the mine by  Provincial Police Officer .Stanfield,-  and in answer to the charge stated  that his indelicate language was  only one of his little jokes. The  accused, however, had made a previous appearance a couple of years  ago, when he was charged with the  serious offence of carrying a dangerous weapon, to wit, a pistol, for  which he was heavily fined. For  this latest offence no fine was imposed, but he was ordered to find  two sureties of $100 apiece in addition to another $100 to be furnished by himself.  Favorable Copper Market  The  following culled   from    the  "Weekly Copper  Letter of. J.   L.  Walker in  the current/issue of the  Boston Commercial:  Copper is strotig at sixteen  cents  for lake, 15^ cents for. electrolytic  and 15^j cents for casting  brands.  The demand   continues good  bpth  for domestic consumption and export.      Producers    are  sold  ahead  and the outlook is all that could  be  desired;    Whatever  reaction   there  may have  been   thus  far  in  other  lines    of industry,   on   account  of  tariff agitation, no let up is noticeable in copper mining. The  producing companies are operating  at capacity and are planning to increase their output.  It is expected that the Copper  Producer's statistics for April will  make a favorable showing and that  another large decrease in the visible  supplies will be recorded. The  foreign visible supply during the'  last half of April decreased further  and the total foreign stock of copper  is lower than at any time since  1908. There  is  scarcely  three  weeks'   supply   ahead    in    foreign  warehouses.  .The more favorable news,from  Europe concerning the restoration  of peace undoubtedly will be reflected soon in easier money abroad.  This will .enable copper consumers  to resume-business under normal  conditions and to purchase their  copper supplies in advance of actual  requirements. - Under the conditions prevailing for the past seven  months, foreign copper consumers  have refrained from carrying their  usual supplies and they have allow  ed their reserves to be drawn  almost,to the'vanishing, point.'. /.' ,'I  ot electrification plans held in abeyance, owing to the inability" of the  railroads, to  raise    money  by   the  saleofbonds at reasonable  prices. - - , .. ��----��-    ��� . .       - ..

B.D.,  formerly pastor of Rossland Methodist church, has recently been appointed president of Columbia college, New Westminster, in- succession to President Hetheriugton who  has resigned.  A large body of' prisoners were  drafted from the Provincial Jail at  Kamlobps to Oakalla near New  Westminster on M'ay 1, when Chief  Constable Fernie, Constable Calder,  and others of the provincial force  conveyed over thirty men from Kam-  loops.  After wanderings which have,  taken him half-way round the world,  Eugene Vtljoen, son of the famous  Boer general, prominent in the late  South African war, and who was in  a great measure responsible for the  overthrow of President Diaz, is now  employed as wireless operator on  the coast steamship, Umatilla.  The Imperial government has  denied the report that an ultimatum  has been presented to Guatemala.  At the foreign office it was said that  all that had been done was to renew  the demands for a settlement of  that country's indebtedness, the  bulk of which has been owing for  twenty-five years.  The steamship Makura arrived at  Vancouver, on Friday of last week,  with four hundred immigrants from  Australia,    the   great   majority   of  Iron and Steel Industry in B. C.  It is gratifying' to be able to report a more promising .outlook for  the iron and steel industry in  British Columbia. Sir William  McKenzieand Sir Donald Mann, at  the request of Sir Richard Mc-  Bride, Minister of Mines, have  been investigating. the iron resources of the province, and though  the report of R. H. Flaherty, their  engineer, was not- favorable to the  character of the iron ores he examined, they, have, as we, are  informed on reliable authority, acquired ' the Te'kada Island iron de-  dosits from the Puget Sound Iron  company, and it is understood that  an iron'and steel plant will shortly  be installed to handle the ores from  these deposits.  Iron ore from Texada Island  was shipped to the Irondale plant,  Washington, from 1883 to 1903,  and most of the pig iron made from  it went to the Union Iron Works,  at San Francisco, where it was  used in the construction of the  battleships Oregon and Monterey,  and the cruiser- Charleston, of the  United States Navy; also in the  construction of two battleships for  the Japanese Navy, which ships  were in action in the engagement  which ended in the destruction of  the Russian fleet.  Iron manufactures .from Texada  Island ore was also used in the  manufacture of car wheels for the  Northern Pacific Railway. Capt.  W. H. Lee, who represented the  Puget Sound Iron company in their  mining operations on Texada Island,  said of this  ore:     "We   challenge  ���m    "'  Crs?mBaking Powder  The finest in the world  When ordering ask for Dr. Price's by name, else  the grocer may forget the  kind you are accustomed to.

Before Icuv-  ing the Hawaiian ��� Islands she will  drop anchor at Kealekelton bay,  where a delegation of sailors will  land and proceed to put in order  the plot of ground that contains the  monument erected years ago to the  memory of Captain Cook, the great  explorer. During her cruise, visits  were made to the lonely Fanning  and Washington islands.  Chas. Robinson, a colored prize  fighter, recently married Jennie  Guidosh, one of the prettiest Slav,  girls of Fernie. The nigger actually found a minister in Fernie to  "solemnize" the marriage.  The discovery is reported of an  extensive salt bed at Kwinitsa, on  thc line of the Grand Trunk Pacific,  in B.C. The importance of the find  lies in the fact that about the only  other deposits of any commercial  value in thc Dominion arc situated  in Ontario. The great future of  the British Columbia fisheries makes  this find of great value.

Mining; Towns  The   tales   told  by   the   returned  traveller are always interesting, but  few of  us realize   how   strange the  stories concerning our western mining camps must sound in the ears of  our eastern friends.     They certainly  must occasion many an-incredulous  smile   and   provoke   a  frequent request for the salt shaker.     Possibly  nine-tenths of our eastern and European  visitors   imagine   before their  arrival   in   Phoenix,   that   they   are  about to   witness something of the  wild and woolly life they have read  about   or    seen   portrayed    on   the  screens of the moving picture theatres, but instead of the swaggering  wild-eyed miner   of fiction  they are  confronted with quite  another class  of gentry, as far removed from their  conception   of what a  miner is, as  the distance between  the north and  south  poles.     This  disillusionment  was   humorously   commented   upon  only recently  by one visitor.     "To  think,"   said   he, "that  here I   am  on   the   top of  a 5000ft.   mountain,  the guest in  as  comfortable a hotel  as   it   is   possible   to   find    in    any  eastern     city;     an     establishment  equipped   with   every   requisite   for  the comfort of the   traveller.     Perhaps my   greatest surprise was  the  electric light.     I   fully  expected my  precautions against the introduction  into  the Commonwealth of the religion of Morrminism.    The activity  of the   Mormon   elders have   been  noted and Australia, unlike Canada,  is not   to   be   caught  napping and  that   land   made   a   happy  hunting  ground    by    the   disciples    of the  pernicious   doctrine   of   pojygamy,  such  as   are  now  settled   in   large  numbers in Alberta.     The action of  thc   late   Laurier administration   in  permitting their entry  into Canada  is inconceivable,   knowing   as they  must   certainly   have   known,    that  their creed included a strong belief  in   a   practice,   which   if   generally  adopted,   would ^ upset   one   of the  most fundamental principles of present day civilization.     It is of little  use   their  telling   us,   as   they    do,  that   the plurality   of  wives is   not  now a part of their religious system,  for   while   its   actual   practice   may  have somewhat diminished, no Mormon can   be   found   who  will' deny  that this  particular tenet is without  scriptural authority. That the Canadian government has its suspicions  aroused over the report of the exist-  ance  of polygamy  among the Mormons  of Alberta   is  proved  by the  orders   to   the   Mounted   Police    to  keep a sharp watch   on  their settlements.

"I can scarcely  realize that I am in a British Columbia mining camp, but I think that  the letters you fellows send east n.re  mainly responsible for the misconception that unfortunately exists."  Hundreds of other instances could  be quoted touching the ridiculous  ideas that many people possess of  British Columbia mining towns.  Four years ago a couple of young  fellows, bound for this town, were  heard discussing the delightful prospect that confronted them. One of  them, evidently scared out of his  wits, enjoined his compauion to refrain from discussing anything of a  controversial nature. "The wisest  thing to do in Phoenix," he said,  "was to not contradict a miner!"  We are pleased to state that both of  them succeeded very well in the  camp and are still alive and well  with not even a single bullet mark  disfiguring their respective  hides.  Madam Albani was another instance of the perverted conception  of the make-up of a western Canadian town possessed by the outsider.  Previous to her appearance in Rossland, some years ago, she expressed  her serious misgivings at including  that peaceful burg in her itinerary,  and no one in the party accompanying her was more surprised at  the intelligent interest displayed by  her audience than the prima donna  herself.
