'^  Prices in Staples  fhe Portals of OppprtunIty to Advantageous  Merchandising in Phoenix are Opened/  ���READ THIS CAREFULLY���  As announced in last week's issue of this paper, we will take  : over the business of the Hunter-Kendrick Co. on May J5th.  AVe will also continue our business  in the Lower Town, and we are sure  that Customers will find this arrangement .convenient;' in  making their purchases.  We want to give our reasons for enlarging our business.  Everyone knows that.during the past-two years the prices of provisions have  been on the upward trend, and it is also a fact that the Grocer is making less profit  out  of  tlie  high prices  than  he  wasr when, lower prices prevailed.     The only  solution'that we could see was to buy nearer the point''���,;of production���to cut out  |the middleman's profit���and the only way we can do this is to be able to buy in  <|j|large quantities, and beour own wholesalers.,. .,    M| By the acquisition of the Hunter-Kendrick business, we will have a large  ? volume of business, larger than any other firm in Southern British Columbia.  We will btty direct from tlie point of prodtiction or manufacture, and can sell our  goods for less than has been possible by the two stores, and net more profit yearly  If for ourselves. Not only in our buying will we save money, but we can conduct the  two stores under one management .with, a smaller proportion of expense, and still  give you as good service as either store has in the past.  ��& Remember���you will be treated just as well as if a number of stores were in  ippositioii to us.     We will acepmrne^  t;,$<bf the-two firms have.     Wc  will do  everj^thing to give  you satisfaction, for we  i^lrealise that only by doing so, and selling you' goods at  lower prices, can we hold  C^jyour confidence, and it is only by:doing.the large volume of business that .we can  $jjj|inake the low prices. />',:i:r\f     \ \\ ; >.' ���; \     \  l'^. We are pleased to au'noiince thatidur great buying facilities, will enable us  ' Vrto make the following reductions effective on  May 15th.    The goods are now in  transit.

AND COMPANY  Grocers and Hardware Merchants  i.si-^xairer^'.mi  LANDS FOR THE  PRE=EMPTOR  Government's Handicap on Speculators  Areas Have Been Withdrawn  From Sale or Lease  A series of nine land re-serve notices  appearing in the British Columbia  Gazette attest an important change of  policy in the administration of crown  lands of the' province^ which change  will be welcomed by the pre-emptor  and homesteader as immensely to their  advantage, while less acceptable to the  land speculator as seiiously handicapping his activities.  Briefly, it is intended hereafter to  restrict the operations of all government  survey parties to land reserved fiom  sale or lease and thus .available solely  to pre emptors; which'land wiJI remain  so reserved, until all ^surveys; therein  are completed.  . .;?::..>  'University landi have been selected.  All the lands have been plotted and  their bona fide classifications ., and  prices have been duly graded and  entered in records at headquarters  here. They may then be gazetted as  open for sale or lease,and 60 clear  days must elapse after such gazetting  before applications for their pui chase  or lease will be entertained.  It has been alleged that provincial  surveyors gave invaluable tips lo speculative agents with, whom they have  been in touch as to lands investigated  by them, frequently even before the reports have reached the employing department, while other land agents have  followed upon the heels of. the.survey-  ors in the field and have even pre  ceded,them, staking especially choice  pieces as the surveys haye proceeded.  Private surveys and invariable minimum classification have also involved  confusion and expense to thV land department and the treasury. All these  abuses will by the now comtemplafed  complete reorganization of the- ciowh  arids sale or lease system be.made an  end of. x'' [  Districts placed under reserve by today's advertisement compose all available crown lands regarded as immediately desirable for speculation or settlement. They are enumerated as follows: Unreserved land on Clearwater  river and Clearwater lakes; unsurveyed  crown lands near Francois lake, coast  district; unsurveyed crown lands in  ranges 4 and 5, coast district; unreserved crown lands adjoining Peace  river reserve, Cariboo district; unsurveyed crown lands in the drainage  area of the Nazco river, coast district;  unsurveyed Crown lands adjoining  Babine lake reserve in the Cassiar,  Cariboo and coast districts; unsurveyed  crown lands on Bear river and Bear  laka, Cariboo district; unsurveyed lands  near Seton lake, Lillooet district; unsurveyed lands on the North Thompson and Clearwater rivers, Lillooet  and Kamloops districts.  ACQUIRES THE MOLLY  GIBSON PROPERTY  Consolidated Co.; Adds To Its  Large Holdings  The Molly Gibson mine on Kok.mee-  creek, one of the oldt^t mines of th  east Kootenay, is* riow addi-d to the  long list of famous- properties owned  by the Consolidated Mining & Smelt-  ing Co.,"Limited; among which are the  large shipping properties of the Snow  shoe at Phoenix, the Centre Star'at  Rossland, the St. Eugene at Moyie,  the Richmond-Riireka at Sandon, all  of which are shipping to the company's  smelter at Trail. The shareholders of  the La Plata Mines, Limited, are takr  ing stock of the Consolidated Mining  & Smelting company in payment.-  The Molly Gibson is a galena prop-;  erty that in its time has shipped a  great deal of ore, the chief value being  in silver, though there has also been a  good recovery of lead. Prior to 1900  the properly was developed and operated by the Molly Gibson Mining Co.,  Limited, but in 1902 its buildings  were taken away by a snowslide and  the property was long idle. ; It was acquired by the La Plata Mines, Limited  and in 1905 produced 820 tons of ore,  while in 1907 it mined 20,000 tons, its  plant including a roo ton concentrator.  It was once a shipper to; the Nelson  smelter, but later shipper to Trail.  It is understood that the. property  will at once be reopened and work proceeded with on a large scale. In short,  this famous mine will resume its old  place in the list of the important shipping mines of the Kootenay.  .,  A new strike has been made at the  Molly Gibson, 1400 feet from the shaft  and about 1600 feet from the railway  track. The ore shoot is about three  feet wide and assays run to $24 per  ton. There were 135 tons of. ore  shipped last year.  KING EDWARD VII. DIES  IN PRESENCE OF FAM1M  "I Think I Have Done My Duty" were His Last Words  ���Period of Mourning to Be Observed���George V;  Second Son,  Succeeds to The Crown  - As announced in tbe last issue of  the Pioneer, King Edward VII. passed  away on the 6th itist.  His death occurred at  Buckingham  Palace at   11.45 p.m..   London time,  to which 3.45 corresponds in our time.  All'the members of the Royal   Family  who were in London  were present at  the King's  bedside  when he breathed  his last.    Throughout the day the physicians in ' attendance could  give  no  hope of the King's recovery, and death  was said to be due to pneumonia,   following an attack  of bronchitis,   contracted at Biarrittz.    He was seriously  ill but three days, as he was apparently  in good health on  his return from Biarritz,  ten days  before.    The  nation  became anxious only when His Majesty  was unable to meet thc Queen  on her  return from the continent.    Only a day  or two previous to his death he   was  transacting state   business,  but  finally  he was  compelled  to  submit  to his  doctor's orders.   Almost his last words  which' will   pass   into   history,   were:  "Well, it is all over, but I think I have  done my duty."  It may well be that the burden of  anxiety in connection with the nation's  present serious constitutional crisis  hastened the end; in fact his physicians  give credence to such belief. As  Queen Victoria's last hours were clouded by the dark shadow of the South  African war, so   King   Edward, in his  George Frederick Ernest Albert, Prince  of Wales, Duke cf Cornwall and York,  succeeded to the throne of the British  Empire. In pursuance of ancient  custom the first official act of the new  kingi George V., was to despatch an  announcement to the Lord Mayor of  London of his father's death. The  news was kept from the press for half '  an hour; this was in order that all  relatives and rulers of other nations  could be notified before the lines were  congested with the public news service.  Edward VII. was born November  9th, 1841, married Princess Alexandra,  eldest daughter of the King of Denmark, March 10th, 1863, and succeeded to the throne January 22nd,  190 if, at the age" of 60 yearsT*  George V;was born June 3rd, 1865,  married^ Princess Victoria~'May'~-of  Teck, July 6th, 1893, and succeeded  to the throne May 6th, 1910.  ,.-:?"

Representatives of the British Col  umbia Copper company have been in  camp this week taking stock at the  New Dominion Copper company properties. They left for the Boundary  Falls smelter on Thursday.  John Buckley, who has been doing  assessment work on his several claims  in the Boundary during the past few  months, will leave shortly for Prince  Rupert, where he is interested in some  building property. i  .'-/��� City Parliament  Mayor Matheson and Aldermen McKenzie,   Ross,   Cosgrove   and    Biner  were present at   Wednesday evening'i  regular session of the city council.

C. Copper Employees Vote  to Return to Work  The strike at Greenwood is off,  members of Greenwood Miners'Union,  Western Federation of Miners, voting  in tavor of employees of the British  Columbia Copper company going back  to work, and operations will be resumed as" soon as the forces at the  mines and the smelter can be secured.  On Thursday the company received  official notification from the union,  over the signature of the secretary,  George Heatherton, that the strike had  been declared off. This action was  the result of a vote taken on Wednesday evening, when the union members  voted 79 to 18 to declare the strike  off.  Thus ends the trouble that has been  smoldering away at different stages  since Jan. Sth last, when a disquieting element broke out with an im  aginery grievance. The question of  wages or hours was not at issue, it was  simply the local union demanding  peremptory discharge by the company  of employees who were not Federation  members. They will now return to  work after a month's idleness, without  any point having been gained.  To the Pioneer yesterday, J. E. McAllister, general manager of the British  Columbia Copper company, stated that  work would be resumed at full blast as  soon as sufficient men were secured.  Experienced miners are much in demand at present, many having left the  district for the north this spring.  MINISTER OF WORKS  VISITS PHOENLX  Hon. Thomas Taylor on Trip  Through the Province  Hon. Thomas Taylor of Revelstoke,  minister of public works in the provincial cabinet, was in Phoenix Tuesday evening. He was accompanied  from Grand Forks by Ernest Miller,  M.P.P., and later in the evening went  to Greenwood accompanied by J. R.  Jackson, member for Greenwood.  Mr. Taylor is making a tour of the  province for the purpose of familiarizing himself with the situation and  needs of the various districts from a  departmental viewpoint.  The public works minister spoke  very optimistically of the general feeling of the country. Everywhere in his  trip he had found things prosperous  and the people were looking forward  with the spirit of growing times.  While in Grand Forks the minister  secured the site for the new court  house in thai city, and stated that a  good start would be made on its construction this fall.  Boundary Mining Notes  Bunkers will shortly be built at the  Midway coal property.  The Granby diamond drill is now  operating on the Gilt Edge claim, a  part of the Granby holdings which has  been little prospected.  A McDonald and F. Knight, who  are promoting the company owning the  Midway coal lands, were in town this  week and are quite enthusiastic over  the prospects of the property. They  left yesterday for Spokane and will en  deavor to interest capital to carry on  extensive development work.

KEPT HIS WORD  One could not desire a more delightful illustration of the  romance  of  western mining life than has just arisen  in connection with the bonding of the  Elsie group of claims, in the  Bayonne  district, by William Maher, the famous  prospector and miner of Nelson.  About two years ago, Eddie Doolan,  son of Larry Doolan, one  of  the old  timers of the promotion and construe"  tion of the C.P.R., and during his life  time well known and respected in all  parts of the Kootenays, was out for a  holiday with William Maher and his  partner, Angus Curry. Along toward  August, 1908, they were away up in  the wide spaces amongst the lakes,  glaciers and peaks above the Bayonne  group The ground about them looked  promising, and an examination proved  it was far better than its appearance.  A group of five claims was marKedoff,  the Elsie, .Wilson,- tTennie, Ore Hill  and Gold Nugget, the first being staked  in the name of William Maher. . , .  "This claim is for you, Ed," said  Maher to young Doolan,, who was with  him. "You are .too .young to get a  miners' certifiicate, but I'll keep the  claim for you." , t t  'Til pay for the recording and have  the work done on it, anyhow," replied  Doolan.    "That is the least I ought to  do." -t'v    -   . :���-���[  "You'll-do-nothing of the sort,. Ed,'/  said Maher.    "Didn't I tell you  the  .claim was yows, that I was giving it  to you ? " ,  -. Without a line of,writing, there the  on   the   bare   word   of  - ���* 1   ��*/-��' ?\ 1  But he comes of the  stock of the Mahers of Tipperary, Ireland, who are renowned for pluck, and  loyal to the death. ,  The whole thing had almost  passed  from young Dolan's mind when his at-        . ��� ,, _,    .,, ,������        .  tention was most sharply and pleasantly  money back,   "just read this letter,' it's'  recalled to it by the receipt of a  letter ^fflgWSj  EXPANSION IN"  MINING PREDICTED  The Vancouver News-Advertiser,  published by Hon. F. Carter Cotton,  says editorially :  "We also look for a great expansion  in the industry  in  the Boundary and  Kootenay districts during the next few  years.    One factor  which  is of great  importance in  making  such   development possible is the great  strides  that  have been made in   the  smelting   industry with a view  to a  reduction  in  the cost  of smelting.    In  the  course  of his address Mr.   Kiddie gave some  concrete instances of what  had  been  accomplished   in   that   direction.    In  one instance ore which a few years ago  yielded one dollar per ton profit to the  mineowner, now gave him a profit of  $8 50 per ton,  with a  corresponding  gain to the miner.    The effect of these  economies   will   be   readily   realized.  Ores which a few years ago would not  pay,to mine, or which could only  be  handled   after  being  concentrated  at  considerable expense, can now be marketed  with  satifactory.results  to  the  mineowner.    Nor  is  there reason to  think that  the  best  results  have yet  been attained.    Mr.   Kiddie speaks of  the year 1890, when a recovery of 50  per cent, of the value  in  the ore was  all that  could   be  obtained.    Today,  by  means, of  improved   methods  an  average   of 80 per cent,   can   be  obtained or 60 per cent, more than what  was possible 20 years ago.    That implies a great addition to the realizable  wealth in our minerals, with all the,indirect benefits that will accure to   the  province   from   the  expansion of  the  mining   industry   made   possible , by  these  improvements  in   metallurgical  processes.   Dinaawe la Charft  Action has been deferred by the  provincial authorities upon several applications for liquor licenses in connection with hotels to be established at  Stewait and at Fort George. The representation of the provincial government at Stewart is for the present to  be vested in Constable Dinsmore, an  experienced and valued officer for some  time in the provincial service at Grand  Forks and Midway, and also chief of  police at Greenwood, and now transferred from Moyie.

Burns was right: "The  rank is but the guinea's stamp, the  man's the gowd for a' that."  Those who know Doolan and hear  of the matter say; "Well done for  young Ed.

T. TURANO, Proprietor  THE COMING  OF ST. ELMO  The woman with a past has been a  familiar subject dealt with by play  writers for many years with more or  less disagreeable effect. "St. Elmo"  presents a man with a past, and his redemption at the hands of one of the  sweetest little heroines of the stage  makes a production that loses none of  the force of the unpleasant plays, but  leaves the spectator with a feeling that  he is better for having witnessed the  performance.  Following closely the lines of Augusta  J. Evans' successful novel of the same  name, "St. Elmo" presents a little  wildflower of a girl who hears almost  the first unkind words in her life from  the lips of St. Elmo, the misanthrope.  A series of disasters transfers the innocent girl of Ihe woods into the  splendid household where St. Elmo's  word is law.  She loves him and remains true to  her love through countless temptations.  St. Elmo fights against his love for the  girl. He tests her faith in every way,  he plunges into more desperate affairs  than ever but cannot escape the girl's  steady influence for good.  A more powerful series of situations  than is presented by the play could not  easily be imagined. It proves the  right kind of a problem play.  This splendid attraction will be at  the Phoenix theatre Tuesday evening,  May 24.  873,441  45 '.74i  '45.935  179.887  Total  34,743    784.763  If you are thinking of building or  require building material of any kind  ���lumber, shingles, lime, brick���call  on me for, figures.

Scotia's greatest poet Burns   has aptly  said, and now an opportunity is to be  afforded uc, for that inimitable  mimic,  Jimmy Fax comes to visit us  on  May  26.    Jimmy  has the wonderful power  of portraying all characters and nationalities.    He  can   represent  any  with  correct dialect anything from a Chinaman to a Scotchman, which is surely a  wide   range.     H is   singing   of Scotch  and Irish songs is without a doubt one  of the greatest treats which a Canadian  public has   ever  had   the   pleasure.of  listening to, and   the   Toronto   papers  compared.him very favorably with  the  renowned Harry Lauder as a portrayer  of Scotchmen.    He   has   engaged this  season some of the best talent  procurable to assist him, and  a   most  enjoyable evening is looked forward to when  he appears here on May s6.  INTERESTED  JAMES J. HILL  Dr. Watt,' doctor for the Kootenay  Indians, with headquarters at Fort  Steele, arrived in Creston on Monday  last on an official tour. Dr. Watt has  been at Fort Steele for the past thirteen  years, and it is twenty eight years since  he first came to British Columbia. Dr.  Watt lias done more for the Kootenay  and Fernie districts than the general  public have any idea. He is the selfsame man who first interested Jim Hill  in B.C It was in (the year of r900  that Dr. Watt visited St. Pauland had  a personal interview with, the railway  magnate.' Dr.Watt introduced the  matter of the Fernie coal mines; at  first Mr. Hill was quite indifferent  about it, saying that the American coal I  was quite as good as the Canadian  coal, but before Dr. Watt left the railway king he was much more interested  in the subject; Within a few weeks of  Dr. Watt's visit to St. Paul, Mr. Hill  sent for a trial shipment of Fernie coal  and was so: pleased with it that he after  a short time purchased thirty per. cent  of the coal company stock for one  million five hundred thousand dollars.  It was in the year of 1891. This  stock investment started his investments  in;B.C., and he afterwards became interested in the mines and the Granby  smelter of the Boundary district.���  Creston Review.

Young, Martin's River,  Lunenburg Co., N.S , writes as follows:  ���"I feel I must acquaint you with the  great benefit I have received from Zam-  Buk. For years I had been troubled  with varicose veins and sores on my  leg, and could get nothing to heal  these. The family doctor treated me,  but instead of getting belter, the  trouble seemed to get worse. I then  tried various remedies, but still to no  avail, and I almost gave up in despair,  thinking I would never get a cure.  About three months ago I heard of  Zam-Buk, and what a wonderful healer  it was, so I laid in a supply and gave  the Zam-Buk treatment a fair trial. It  surpassed my highest expectations, and  only a few boxes were needed to effect  a complete cure.  "Not only in my own case, but in the  case of a friend of mine, to whom I  recommended Zam-Buk for the same  trouble, Zam-Buk has done what everything else, previously tried, failed to  do. I recommend Zam Buk very  strongly, and I think it should have a  place in every household."  For ulcers, abscesses., eczema, chaps,  salt rheum, ringworm, blood-poisoning,  chronic sores, and all othei skin injuries and diseases, Zam Buk is without  equal. It also cif.es piles, festering  sores, and inflamed patches. All druggists and stores sell at 50c box, or post  free from Zam Buk Co., Toronto, for  price.

The  Stuttz   Theatre company   returned to the local opera house Thursday evening for a  week's engagement.  Since their last engagement here they  have been joined by some of the members of the National Stock company of  Calgary and will be seen in a number  of new   plays   here   this   time.    On  Thursday    they    presented    "LaBelle  Marie" to a splendid audience,   Mrs.  Aggie Marion Stuttz appearing to decided advantage in the title role.  The Jessie Maclacblao Company  There is no disqualifying the fact that  the Jessie Maclachlan company gave  Ihe must artistic concert ever given in  Phoenix, that Miss Machchlan is the  most distinguished vocalist that has  appeared here and that she fully sustained all the complimentary things  said about her. , Her soul is in her  every number, her notes are clear . and  true, her stage presence charming and  even in the explanation of ballads her  voice is musical. Craighall Sherry is  a Scotch humorist of distinct merit,!  Barnaby Nelson possesses a rare tenor  voice, and Robert Buchanan is an accomplished accompanist.  But withall  they  fail to appreciate  appreciation of their numbers.    While  the attendance at the concert was  not  large, it was, probably the most  enthusiastic audience that   has attended a  concert here and the applause was not  stinted, but the company condescended  to but que encore, that by   Miss   Maclachlan.    Whether the company are so  wary of their talents that they object to  giving more of their services   than  the  program calls for,   it   was  abundantly  evident to   the   audience   that   they  wouldn't   "come   back."    Possibly  a  Scotch   regiment cannonading at  the  rear of the   hall  would  elicit encores,  but the company may  as  well understand now as  later that   western  audiences, with but a sprinkling of Scots,  do riot go wild with'applause for even  Scotch gems; if artists do not wish   to  accept reasonable applause, (he western  audience doesn't want.an encore.  n^andreally  looks  exquisite.
