A visit to our store will convinee you that you  are ahead to make this your main dealing place.  After several months of preparation,  as occasion offered, this week systematic operations were undertaken at the  Stemwinder mine, owned by the Montreal &��� Boston Consolidated. And,  for the first time in several years, two  hoists are now in operation on the  hill on the north side of the city.  The Stemwinder, si'ice the beginning of Phoenix cinip, has had the  reputation of having some of the best  ore to be obtained in any of the properties in this low grade camp. The  mine   was located in   the summer or  '. tion of the Old Ironsides, Knob Hill,  ! Brooklyn, etc., had ,been made. In  the course of time it fell into the hands  of Mackenzie, Mann- '& Co., who included it in the group of six claims  which were incorporated as the Dominion Copper Co., I .td. It was de  veloped to some extent under the  management of Mr. Robbins'for Mackenzie & Mann, and later by J. L.  Parker when the properties were work  ed under the management of James  Breen.  A shaft 350 feet deep has been sunk  on the Stemwinder, .-and at the 114-  foot level some :6oc' or 700 feet of  drifting has been done, developing the  ore body of the property to no little  extent. The mine has now been put  in shape for steady work, and ore will  be shipped shortly. ' The ton and a  half skip has been fitted, new head-  works built, a new Hoist put in and a  boiler installed. The first work being  undertaken by, Supt. Collins is that of  cutting out a pocket at a depth of  about 140 feet, capable of holding some  200 tons of ore. Two shifts are employed, and from now on the chug of  the Stemwinder hoist, a few hundred  feet from the Pioneer office, will be  heard night and day.  No ore has been shipped from  the  Stemwinder  except   several   hundred  The output of the various shipping  mines of the Boundary for the month  of April was 80,102 cons, according to  figures compiled by the Phoenix  Pioneer, and subject to correction. In  the case of all the large shipping properties, the detailed list shows that this  output was considerably less than for  the previous month of Match, first,' because April is a shorter month, and,  second, for the reason that some of the  ten furnaces in all three of the district  smelters were in process of repair during April. The March output exceeded 90,000 tons, and was a record  month for tonnage from the Boundary.  Following are the details of the shipments from the several working mines  of Boundary for April:  Mine Tonnage  Granby 49,634  Mother Lode   11,904  Brooklyn-   12,378  Rawhide     3,335  The shaft on the Mavis, ia Skylark  camp, is now down 25 feet.  James McCreath, L. A. Smith and  others interested in the Silver Cloud,  in Skylark camp, are much pleased  with the high grade antimonial silver  now being encountered in the drift at  the 85 foot level of the property.  In a short time a party of Montreal  & Boston officials is expected to arrive  in the Boundary, consisting of those  who have recently t��ken control of the  company. The party will include  President Warner Miller and others.

Whether the British Columbia Copper Co. will build another smelter at  Midway, Rock Creek or elsewhere, it  now seems certain that not only will  the smelter already in operation at  Greenwood be enlarged, but that the  company is branching out extensively  in the way of securing new and important properties in the Similkameen,  now that transportation is assured for  that section.  ��� President F. L. Underwood accompanied by \V. H. Thomas, the company's consulting engineer, both of  whom are well known in the Boundary,  after a ten days' drive through the  Similkameen, were in Phoenix last  Saturday, en route to their home in  New-York city. From the nature of  the case, they had little to say for publication, as plans are still largely in a  formative siate, but undoubtedly extensive operations by those interested  in this company are afoot, which will  gradually be made known. On the  trip west the gentlemen were accompanied all. the way by Manager Frederic I _effer, a couple of technical men  and William Anderson, of the.Cascade  Waterj Power & Light Co., so that all  phases ofthe metallurgical and power  situation could be considered intelligently.  Mr. Underwood and his friends, it  is now evident, have secured a control-  inn interest in the more or less famous  Sunset group of claims on Copper  mountain, near Princeton, there being  some 32 claims in the group. The  Sunset is a low grade mine, with an  immense body of ore which is alleged  to run rather better than Boundary's  low grade propositions R.A. Brown,  of Volcanic fame, was the locator and  chief promoter, and Smith Curtis and  Joseph Martin the man from Manitoba,  and others were interested. Brown  has done no small amount 6f work on  the Sunset, and pins his  faith  to    its  .      .      ......   lUn_   omilt.lV  in the Boundary���just as he does to  the Volcanic.  Daniel Morrison,"'who had charge  of the development work at the Emma  mine in Summit camp for. years, will  be in charge of operations at the Sunset, and this week not only moved his  family over there, but engaged a number of men in Phoenix to proceed at  once to the Sunset and begin develop  ment.        ���>  April Total   80,102  For purposes of comparison the out  put of Boundary 'mines, individually,  "ft*.-.!._��� .no.it!._* nf   Jditi���WiypTCinftaTy  and March, 1905, are appended :  Mine January February  March  Granby mines 40,450 40,822 55,798  Mother Lode.   13,686 11,680 13,504  Brooklyn     6,849    9,262  10,474  Rawhide     2,251  I^ast  Odd Fell.wi Parade.  Sunday 'evening    Snowshoe  Lodge, No. 46, Independent Order of  Odd Fellows, held the annual church  parade to the Methodist church. The  occasion was the 86th anniversary of  the establishment of the order, and  about 70 ofthe members ofthe order  were in the line. The church was  filled to overflowing, and Rev. D. M.  Perley preached a sermon appropriate  to the occasion. ..  Thursday evening the Odd Fellows  gave an at home to their friends, and  a most pleasant evening was spent.  David Whiteside of Grand Forks was  chairman, and each number on the  programme was well received. An  address was given by the Past Grand  Master Elsperman, of the state of  Washington, who came from Danville  for the purpose, after which dancing  was enjoyed.till a late hour.  ��..��....���������..�����*�����.-���.*��'.���*���*��*.����������*���.������.�������*!

The sub-port is  proving a. great convenience to local  importers, as well as those in Greenwood.  It is claimed for the Steele & Free-  land moving picture show, that all the  unpleasant features generally noticed  about such entertainments, are absent,  as Mr. Freeland understands his busi  ness, and has succeeded in eliminating  the features referred to.  Everybody should secure a ticket to  the base ball dance, to be given next  week Thursday at Miners' Union hall.  Funds realized will be used for expenses of the club, such as fixing up  the new grounds, etc. Hazlewood lice  cream will be served at the dance.  It is reported that C. M.

A find of free gold of no little im  portance was made Monday on the  Buttercup, about two miles from Eholt,  near McPherson's old sawmill. Mike  Belforitaine and Mike McDonell, the  owners, are working the property.  The owners have been developing  the Buttercup for the last two or three  years with indifferent success till this  week, when the above find was made.  In the bottom of a ten-foot shaft they  have a five foot ledge of decomposed  quartz, of which about five inches is  good pay matter. An assay gave $487  in gold, and the free gold could be  seen clearly in the ore. A large number of mining men visited the claim  this week from Greenwood and Phoenix, it being located close to the Ren-  dell pre-emption.  This week the work of developing  the 'Brooklyn mine in this camp was  started, the work now being carried on  al the 250-foot level. Heretofore but  little "development was done, operations  being confined to the taking out of ore.  Robert Wood, Ralph Smailes, Sidney M. Johnson and James Paton'  have given a two year bond for $12,-  000 on the Duncan, a promising West  Fork claim, near the famcus Sally, to  Thomas Henderson, D. M. Currie  and others.  The Granby Cq. is laying a pipe  line from the compressor building to  the new glory hole7 on , the Monarch  claim, recently acquired by the company. About 1,600 feet of pipe will  be laid to provide compressed air for  drilling purposes.  W. S. Macy and associates, who recently bonded the Tip Top claim, adjoining the E.P.U. in Skylark camp,  have a small force of men at work, and  have already discovered ore with  values up to $76 therein. Supt.  Hodges, of the Granby Co., examined  the property this week.  Work has been started at pumping  ou. the Jewel mine in Long Lake  camp, the owners of which, the Jewel  Gold Mines, Ltd., recently bonded a  half interest in the Denero Grande,  adjoining, already owning the other  half interest. There is talk of the  Jewel being examined by one of the  LeRoi companies, of Rossland, with .a  view to acquisition by them.  Last Wednesday the last of the battery of six furnaces .at the .Gianby  smelter   ..as- mown in again, aim m^  entire works are once more being operated at fullest capacity. All of the  furnaces are now being operated with  the electric self charging device, invented and patented by Supt. Hodges  in Mexico, United States and Canada,  and the only one of the kind in use  anywhere. Mr. Hodges states that  the device is working most satisfactorily. A full description of this de  vice will appear in an early number of  the Pioneer.  Bonnington Falls Power for  Boundary.  Temporary Line Ready This  Summer.  ',_  Laid a Criminal Charte.  D. C. Beach sued John Graham for  non-payment of a check for $30 and  for $37-50 in cash. The rase came  before Police Magistrate Williams, the  defence being that Graham is a minor  and the debt was for gambling, and  was dismissed. Beach then laid a  criminal charge for obtaining money  under false pretenses against Graham,  and the case will come up next Tuesday, Graham being represented by J.  R.Brown.   Graham gave $450 bail.  C. E. Legg, conductor on the Phoenix run on the Great Northern, has  gone to Hot l^ake, Oregon, with his  wife, where he will spend two or three  weeks. Fred Getsey is taking Mr.  Legg's place in his absence.  It transpires that'the proposition to  deliver electric power in the Boundary  from the  falls on  Kootenay river at  Bonnington, operated by   the   West  Kootenay  Power &  Light Co, has  assumed such definite shape that surveys are now being  made by F.  W.r  Guernsey and a force of.men from.  Rossland  to Grand Forks, and some  time this summer it is the intention to'  be in shape to deliver at Jeast  1,000  horse power from  the hydro-electric  works at Bonnington  to the  Granby  Co. in case there is  a shortage of the  present power available at- Cascade.  The present high   tension  line from  Bonnington to Rossland will be used  as far as it goes, and then the line runs  via the Velvet mine on Sophie mountain to Cascade and Grand Forks.  It is expected to require about a.  year to complete the permanent pole  line and to install the necessary machinery at Bonnington Falls for generating the power that will be delivered  here for the operation ofthe smelters  and mines of the Boundary. In the  meantime, should there be a shortage  of water in the Kettle river, such as  occurred last fall and winter, the temporary line will relieve the situation to  some extent and do away with the  probability of curtailing operations at  the Boundary plants. Eventually the  new double pole line will be extended  to Greenwood and Boundary Falls, a  distance ot Ho miles Irom uonniugiun,  to supply the smelters at those places  with electrical energy.  ARE WORKING  THE BOULDER  Two Cars to be Shipped to  Granby Smelter.  This week Supt. Hodges, of the  Granby Co., sent Foreman John  Rogers with a force of men to the  Boulder, a short distance from Eholt,  to take out and ship a couple of cars  of ore for testing at the Granby smelter.  If the ore is suitable, it is likely that  the Granby Co. will take a bond on  the property and work it.  The Boulder is owned by M. Tebo,  of Eholt, and Charles Sanders, of  Grand Forks, and has an immense  surface showing. It has been stripped  and opened up in several places, and  as it carries considerable iron besides  some copper values, is believed to be  quite suitable for use in the local  smelters, it is situated less than a  mile from Eholt towards Long Lake  camp, and in the past has been examined by eminent mining engineers.

Editor Simpson, of the Cranbrook  Herald,' hit the nail on the head, as  usual, when he "wrote the following  "The province of a'newspaper is  to  give the news, promote the best interests of the community and- avoid  action that would tend to stir up unnecessary personal  strife.    Some editors labor under the unhappy delusion  that they  were placed in charge of a  newspaper for the purpose of exploiting themselves, securing public revenge  upon   personal   enemies,  .improving  upon what the Lord has done and finding fault with the, worid, the town in  which  they live and the people with  whom they associate day in and day  out.     But so long as a man owns a  paper, just so long will he probably  dictite a policy to suit himself.    The  world has been that way in the past  and it will continue that way in the  future.    The difference in  the   man  makes the difference in the paper."  ��*���  Quite a number of land seekers have  gone  out  from   tbe   Boundary   this  spring.    Some have settled near Kamloops and others have hied themselves  to the Similkameen.     The latter part  of this month the reserve of the Columbia & Western railway will be lifted,  and it is pretty safe to-say, judging  from inquiries already jniadK, that considerable land in this part of the province will be quickly taken up.  The Pioneer has received more new  subscriptions in the last three months  than in any similar period since the  year it was established, nearly six years  sin-e. There is still room on our  books for more names, however. By  the way, if this happens to meet the  eye of a reader who has not sent in his  renewal, he might bear...in mind that  now is the accepted time for that sort  of thing also.  Don't borrow your neighbor's newspapers. They may let on that you are  welcome to them but they don't mean  it. People take papers because they  want them, and if you want them you  should subscribe. A man in Illinois  returning home the other day found  his neighbor leaving the house and  being of a jealous nature drew his gun  and filled the man's legs with shot. A  lawsuit followed and it was found that  the man was there to borrow the local  paper. The suit cost $75, the doctor  bill was $25 and $2 would have saved  the trouble. Now is the time to subscribe. ,      '     ��� ��� ���  SANITARIUM, A-row Uke, B.C.  fJBb.'Tbc'iwMii psr frcty �� ppofir.ed II. a tti  ana pleasure Resort in tlie West, with �� cvm-  pi ct c aynl.ni 'or(Hatli,^-i_ c lutiliig.

Sold everywhere for the past fifty years.  Spread Abroad tbe Knowledge  The following from the Denver  Mining Reporter has a local application ;n British Columbia as well as i.n  the United States, and might be  equally true as regards the dissemina  tion of knowledge of mining, agricultural and other resources ot a district:  "On the question of publicity it  might be well to point out that the  most practical plan for spreading  abro.d knowledge of the mineral  wealth of mining districts is to support  ciean, honest and well-edited local  newspapers. Supporting a local newspaper does not simply mean paying a  subscription, but also by giving it the  news. In less than a month items  which originally emanated from the  local paper will haveappeared in scores  of other papers, reaching the ey.'.s of  many thousands of .readers elsewhere.  Let such information be reliable, and  good must eventually be derived by  the locality to which reference is  made."  Cured His Mother of Rheumatism.  "My mother has been a sufift rer for  many years with rheumatism," says W.  H. Howard, of Husband, Pa. "At  times she was unable to move at all,  while at all times walking was painful.  I presented her with a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm and after a few  applications she decided it was the  most wonderful pain reliever she had  ever tried, in fact, she is never without  it now and is at all times able to walk.  An occasional application of Pain Balm  keeps away tlie pain that she was formerly troubled with." For sale by all  druggists.  Spokane Falls  &  NortliemRy.
