It is not necessary to relate in the  Pioneer at this time.the story of the  development of the mammoth ledges  of ore contained in the Old Ironsides  and Knob Hill mines in the heart of  this camp. It is too well known that  the ore bodies can literally lie measured by acres���tlie word "feet" often  being incomprehensive. lint one must  go through the properties to fully  'realize the magnitude of the ore bodies,  a controlling interest in which isowncd  by the Miner-Graves syndicate. Even  the Pioneer man, whose business it is  to keep in touch with things in general, did not appreciate the size of  these ore zones till he saw them for  himself.  But there are evidently some men  of mining experience, outside of the  stockholders in the properties, that do  realize the untold wealth now being  brought to light on Old Ironsides hill.  Rumors have been afloat in the east  for some time that the Miner-Graves  syndicate had been offered a large  figure for their properties in the  Boundary. In this connection, Mr.  S. H. C. Miner, president of the company, was asked by a representative of  a Montreal paper to either deny or  confirm the story.  He admitted that the story was true,  but said '.hat it needed a little explanation, and being asked to make a statement for publication, he said :  "Some time before the end of the  year we were made a cash offer of  $3.5000,000 for the Knob Hill and  Old Ironsides."  "And you refused?"  "Yes, we refused that sum when  our development did not begin to  compare with the results, possessed  today ; and in order to set the matter  at rest, I may as well tell you   first  as!  la the New PoatqfHe.  This evening residents ..of Phoenix  will get their mail in the new;postoffice,  in the Stephens building, close to the  old location. Postmaster Matheson  has had 60 glass and brass,lock boxes  put in, with i otiargfe,drawers,: which  arc finer than anything yet in use in  the Boundary. Theyahi nearly all  rented, and he is arrangirfg to( have 40  more lioxes added," for which'space has  been left. Everyone will appreciate  the change'of the 'postoffice. from the  old cramped quarters' to the new and  commodious location.  Two Storaty Meetings. . ,  Victoria, March 2 .v^Two stormy  meetings of Liberals -were held last  night, the one in'/VancbuVer and the  other in Victoria. Both meetings  were called for the purpose of discussing the advisability of sending delegates to the convention-to be -held at  Vancouver oh April '5', and in' both  there were indignant- protests against  theevident intention of using the convention to bolster up ������''._.laYtih's cause.  At Victoria, after, a heated debate, it  was decided to participate in the convention on the distinctjinderstanding  that all factionswill be bound by the  decision of convention. Sixty delegates were then appointed and from  these the forty allowed to Vtctoriawill  be chosen. The delegation , is simply  anti-Martin. At Vancouver, a mixed  delegation was also appointed.   ���.  Martin Opens the Campaign.  Victoria, March 28.���Joseph Martin's public meeting Inst night was  quite a success from his standpoint,  the premier being, well received by  seven or eight hundred citizens, who  crowded the ball. He appealed for  support as the leader of the Liberal  party, declaring that this is to be a  contest between the- Liberals under  him and the Conservatives under  Wilson. The meeting wos the first of  a number that the premier expects to  hold throughout the province.  He dealt at considerable length  with the deed of coal lands to the  Crow's Nest Pass Company' after his  ejection frow the government, claiming  that had his-policy been followed these  lands could have been made to -pay  the whole-expenses of the government  of the province. Referring to the  Colonist's opposition, Martin alleged  that it was inspired by tlie disappointment of Editor Lugrin at not having  been himself called in by the lieutenant-governor.

None  but those who actually took part can  realize the vast amount of work entailed  in getting it up, and none but: those  who witnessed the delightful entertainment in its entirety can realize how  successful it really was. Every one  who took part.;is to be congratulated.  All the numbers on the program were  good and all were well rendered. , One  unusual feature, about the concert  was favorably commented on, and that  was the absence of tedious waits and  the fact that the program was carried  out to the letter���-not a.single participant failing to be oh hand, when his Or  her turn came. . ���'.  Miners' Union hall, where the con-  cert'was held, was-(lacked, and many  were standing. . The new stage, curtains and electric footlights were used  for the first time,, and everything went;  off smoothly. John Riordan, .secretary of the union, had looked after  the little details and apple . pie order  was the rule.  A more unfavorable night, in point  of weather, would have been hard to  find, but the crowd was there just the  same. Those who bad witnessed similar entertainments in other Boundary  towns, assert that the concert in Phoenix was far ahead of the others:'in  many respects. . >  The Program. :  ...  The program opened,-witfl. an instrumental piece by Prof. Paul Kaufmann  which was followed by -'God Save the'  Queen," by the audience, led by the  male chorus. Then came the' recitation by \V. Rogers, which was Well  received, and-was followed by the male,  chorus in, "The Bull; Dogon the  Bank." Those in ���'���. the chorus were  Messrs. A. P. and G. S. McKenzie,  Crawford, Thompson, Keith, Reeve,  McBean, Stewart, Henderson and W��U-_  cox. The audience was. evidently  pleased with this old stand-by, as it  had to be repeated. The song and  clog dance by Thomas Murray were  enthusiastically applauded, as was also  the sweet solo, "Sold iers-of the Queen,"  by Mrs. W. J. Porter. J. F. Hemenway sang "My Dear Old Home" in a  manner that was highly appreciated,  his rich baritone being heard to excellent advantage.  A. G. Simpson brought down the  house with his comic soiig in costume,  entitled, "The Dear, Kind Doctor."  He also sang the "Absent Minded  Beggar"���without which no patriotic  concert would be complete���and when  he waved the Union Jack and came to  the "Pay, Pay, Pay" chorus,, silver  fairly rained around him to the amount  of $30, showing the appreciation by  the audience of his efforts. Michael  McBean's highland fling and sword  dance were finished and showed an  ability that the audience applauded to j  the echo.  The first part of the program concluded with the "Milkmaids Dance  Burlesque." When Messrs. W. R.  Williams, Rumbcrger, Russell, Henderson, Crawford and Willcox tripped  on the stage, dressed in short skirts  and fantastic costumes, singing a child's  ditty, the audience was simply convulsed���and it had a good reason to  be so. The costumes were indeed  fearfully and wonderfully made, audi  this number was undoubtedly one of]  the hits of the evening.  Part 11 opened with a recitation  and highland fling by Miss Hazel  Dorsey, which was indeed a gem, and  showed that the young lady has talent  of no mean order. D. A. Stewart  sang the air in " Rule Brittania" in  good, style, and was excellently supported by the male chorus. The  whistling solo, by W. W. Lowery w.us  unique and interesting and was enjoyed thoroughly. Miss Elsie Kaiser  of Eholt gave a violin solo in an acceptable manner.  The entertainment then closed with  a Grand Virginia Cake Walk, by Mrs.  Abbott, Mrs. Russell. Miss Crawford,  Miss Dorsey and Messrs. Hemenway,  Hall, Taylor and Davis. These ladies  and gentlemen were costumed as befit  such an event, and as burnt cork  artists they fairly shone. Special preparations had been made for this number, and the representation- was complete to the smallest particular. Each  one. performed his or her part to perfection, and the applause was almost  continuous, especially during the progress of the solo dancing, which was  really most creditable.  Louis C.-Craw-lord is deserving of  special mention as having, with the  assistance of George W. .Rumbcrger  and ochers, taken particular pains to  make the affair the unqualified success  that it undoubtedly   was.     Mr. Craw  ford was ably assisted by his sister,  Miss Elsie Crawford, who had charge  of drilling for the cake walk and the  burlesque of the sweet little milkmaids.  The Result.  It cannot yet be said just what the  net proceeds of the concert will .amount  to, as all those: having tickets* for sale  have not yet reported. During the  evening a photographer, engaged beforehand, took flash light'view.. of several scenes for the committee, and the  net proceeds of the sale of these photographs will be turned into the general  fund. As there will doubtless bequite  a demand lor these, it should result  in quite a considerable addition to the  fund. Altogether it is thought by the  committee that betweed $150 and  $_oo can be remitted to the eastern  treasurer of the Canadian Patriotic  Fund. Expenses weie kept to the  minimum throughout, and the fund will  be added to in every ixmible way.  Any who desire to contribute to it can  hand it to Mr. Rumbcrger, who acts  as local treasurer, and who will gladlyi  see that it gets to its proper destina  tion.  UBERALSOFPHOENIX  Make Several Resolutions on  Important Matters.  SMITH CURTIS IN  THE BOUNDARY.  What the Money is for.  Some misunderstanding exists as to  the object of the fund being raised, for  which this concert was given. It is  not for the soldiers in South Atrtca,  but for the-wives, children, widows  and orphans of those soldiers, deserving persons,'who have no part in the  war, but who suffer in consequence of  it. A more deserving object would be  difficult to-find, and it is hoped that  this explanation will, make the matter  clearr with the result that the contribution of Phoenix will [be materially  increased.  Footllghl Flashes.  Mr. Simpson was. a great favorite  with the audience.  The accompaniments of Prof. Kaufman were excellent  As an encore tlie male chorus rendered " John Brown's Body "effect  ivdy. ������.';.;'���������  ;.;.Mrs. Whitwelirvery kindly and ably  presided at the piano during the rehearsals.  The make-up of all those who took  part in costume was of the best in  every respect.  . After, the'entertainment the room  was cleared and -a ^social dance was  enjoyed for a few! hours.  Even the best friends of the cake  walkers could hardly recognize them  in their dusky disguises.  The audience was extremely appreciative, and evidently knew a good  thing when they saw or heard it.  "I have seen the cake walk among  the darkies in the south," said a gentleman, "and they could not do it  better."  Alfred Reeve has charge of the photographing,  and  when   finished    the  cards themselves  will: be- on- sale1- at'  the store of A.  1'.  McKenzie- &   Co.  Campbell is the artist.  J. F. Hemenway .outdid himself in  the cake walk, and could hardly be  recognized as tire affable assistant  treasurer of the Mines-Graves companies operating in this camp.  Judge W. R, Williams, one of the  coy milkmaids in the burlesque, took  off the part of leaderlin that number  to |>crfection, and a large number ol"  onlookers are not over laughing at it  yet.

And no one seems  to desire to secure a monopoly of this  industry, either.  WHAT THE EDITORS SAY.  It has long been almost an axiom  that residents and  legislators at  the  canst, as a rule, had little idea of the  geography and extent of the Kootenays  and Yale.   In   a general   way  they  know where they are, and the drum-  jueis are well posted, but to a large  extent this ends it.    They do not appear to know, and care less, when it  comes to legislation  affecting southeastern British Columbia, unless a resounding howl is raised!  -  This point is illustrated by the fol-  Jowjng from the Vancouver World :  ;    The Phoenix Board of Trade have  .expressed themselves as pleased  with  the promptness with which the Minister of'Mines, Hon. Smith Curtis, attended   lo representations   made by  ghem in connection with ,the appointment of a gold commissioner  for the  Kettle River mining district, and  the  manner in which  Mr. Curtis acted  *ijH>n  the recommendation  made  by  the board in nominating Mr. McMynn  _'or the position,    Ii is not yet known  ���whether Mr. McMynn's office will  be  .at Greenwood, Grand Forks or Mid-  It is and always  has been  known  "-that Mr. McMynn's location' is Mid-  , -way, and'could  not. possibly'be in  , Grand Fork's, because triat town  is; in  another mining division���-the Grand  ^prks���wiiere.S.

It has been and is still  being gotten,up 'for the benefit ���of dependents of Canada's brave sons who  are defending the honor of the empire  in'South Africa.   There are'already  go of" these, and  .here is likelihood  jhat the number will, increase rather  than grow-smaller.    It is in accordance  ���with the eternal fitness'of things that  ihpse left at home should contribute  jtheir mite to the cause in this manner.  Up to this time the fund has reached a total of over $200,000,' but it is  .estimated that the sum~s"hould reach  ;$3co,oco to accomplish properly  the  purpose desiied.   From leports it is  .evident that the fund is being carefully  handled, which fact of itself will appeal  io a laige number of jieople.  It is a pleasure to state that the  proceeds of the patriotic concert and  .entertainment given  in  Phoersi _  last  Thursday night,  will  be sent to the  treasurer of this fund; so the residents  .of Phoenix who contributed in  anyway to the success of the entertain-  fnent, either by purchasing  tickets or  .otherwise, can feel  that they ha\e  a  jiart in it.   If there should be any w ho  ,did .not do either and still wish  to  assist, the local treasurer of the fund,  George W, Rumbcrger, or Postmaster  Matheson -will receive the same and  i>ee that they are added to the amount  .already contributed.     The cause is  worthy, the fund is economically and  carefully distributed among those it is  intended  to benefit,  and  every one  should take part in it, and   "Pav, Pav,  y��yt"  FtHROUGH THE WEEkT]  >���������* HI Mill .It l�� ��*M !��������>�������� 1^1 I M������MMl��  The Phoenix Pioneer comes to hand  greatly enlarged, it being now a foui-  pnge, seven column paper, and all  home made.

The Granby smelter at Grand Forks  will soon be in 'operation with two  stacks in blast, having a daily capacity  of 500 tons. ' In speaking of it the  other day to .the Rossland Record,  Jay 1*. Graves, the manager, said:  "The plant is practically completed,  with the exception of some  miner details, such  as  platforms,   diains,  i.e.  Work on the dajn is delayed  by   high  water, but it   will   probably be  com  pletcd in two or  three  weeks.    However that does not delay  our  starting  the plant.    We now have two stacks  in place, giving a daily capacity of 500  tons, but everything, is arranged  for  six furnaces.    We are now haiiling ore  by team from the  City  of  Paris  and  have already  delivered   15 ^carloads.  We are building it in heaps for  roasting and shall  probably   start roasting  in the next two  weeks and start  the  furnaces as soon as we get the roast  heaps off.  "We have 100 acres of lime rock on  ... the north fork about two miles above  i)_K'. the smelter, on the main line of the  ���|||Sj_ilroad. We shall use Crow's Nest  j^^pcoke, of which we have several car-  sjf|l|;loads already on hand. We have a  "sawmill up on the north fork, of a  capacity of 26,000 iieet daily, which is  cutting timbers for the mines. We  load timbers on the cars at the mill  and unload them at the mines without  any .extra handling. .  "We have built tlie smelter for our  own purposes and expect to have all  the ore we need: at pur own mines.  Jf- we need any additional ore for fluxing, . ve shall buy it > We have not  r^Eniade any contracts with outside mines,  K'��$"' but without doubt we shall receive  some. Still, it is not a customs plant.  "We shall have no difficulty about  keeping the plant in operation; even  when the other four stacks are built  arid in operation, for we have enough  ore in sight in our mines at Phoenix  tp keep it in operation for ten -.years,-  even if we never find any more; Oh  the 300-foot level of the Victoria and  Old'Ironsides we have crosscut 375  feet, all in ore. It is not all shipping  ore, but will carry some value. We  have three bins at the Knob Hill and  Old Ironsides with a capacity of 4000  tons each. At the City of Paris we  had to suspend stoping until we made  room in the ore bins, but we expect to  resume next week. I received a telephone message yesterday that they  had found good ore on the lower levels  of the City of Paris.  "I have asked for specifications for  a central compressor plant to operate  the mines at Phoenix, which will have  a capacity at sea level of 50 odd drills,  or at the elevation of the mines, 4800  feet, of 40 drills. This will operate  the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill, the  Granby Smelting Company's group of  four claims���- the Victoria, Ktna,  Phoenix and Fourth of July���and the  four claims of the Grey Eagle Company."

City water is already  on the avenue, and the main will be  extended as last as the demand warrants.  Have your teeth well taken care of  by your dentist, if they need any attention by reason of your own neglect, or  through cause beyond your control.  Have them thoroughly looked after  and put in as healthy a state as is possible, and keep' them so, then your  liability to neuralgia or any other disease of the teeth and gums will be  very much lessened. And here let  me say that it is an error to suppose  when ) our dentist has put your mouth  in order it will stay so for an indefinite period. On the contrary, the  mouth ought to be examined at least a  couple of times a year, and you should  not wait until your teeth begin to ache,  for "an ounce of prevention, is better  than a pound of cure."
