Two more cars of ore will be shipped  from the Skylark next week.  The tunnel in the Gold Finch is being driven by steam power for the  drills.  Preparations are being made for the  removal of the Sunset hoist to the  Idaho mine.  Owing to the failure of water, ground  sluicing has been discontinued at the  Iron Clad in Wellington camp.  M. H. Roy is doing some development work on his claim in Long Lake  camp, where the Jewel is also working.  Some developmrnt is being done on  the Never Slip, near Grand Forks, at  which phenominal free, gold was reported as having been found recently.  April was a record month for ore  treatment for the Dominion Copper  Co.'s Boundary Falls smelter, more  than 20,000 tons of ore having been  reduced.  Last week an ore body was reported  reached in the drift in the Pathfinder  mine, up the North Fork, the property  being under bond to the Granby Co.  for $110,000.  The frame for the third mammoth  ore crusher for the Granby mines ar  rived from Sherbrooke, Que., this  week. It weighs a matter of some  68,000 pounds.  The new converter stand for the  Granby smelter has arrived, and is expected to be ready for business in another week or two, making three  stands at this smelter.  Some of the Emma mine ore is now  going to the Canadian Metal Co., of  Nelson, which owns the zinc smelter at  Frank. The balance is shipped to the  Hall and B. C. Copper smelters.  An order has been placed with the  Canadian Westinghouse Co., Ltd., for  an electric motor of 400 h.p. by which  the new air compressor plane for the  Dominion Copper Co. will be oper  ated.  While no further information regarding the resumption of operations at the  Snowshoe mine has been given, it is  understood that arrangements to this  end are now being made, and that  something will be known shortly.  It may possibly be the first of June  before the Mother Lode mine ceases  shipping to the B C. Copper smelter,  on account of the latter putting in the  new giant furnaces for which preparations are now being made at the works.  This week the temporary hoist was  installed at the new Idaho three-compressor shaft. It will be used till the  large plant ordered last week by the  Dominion Copper Co. is on the ground  and installed. The Idaho tunnel is  still being driven.  Work was discontinued this week  on the Preston for the time being, owing to the amount of water coming into  the workings. The shaft is down  115 feet, and there are about 150 feet  of drifts. Some of the Chicago men  interested in the Preston are expected  in the Bounday before long.  . Last Saturday the Providence sent  out a couple of cars of ore, the first in  two or three months. With the mine  having a sidetnck of its own, ore shipments will be more regular in the  future, the property itself, under the  superintendency of P. J. Dermody  looking betttr than  ever in its history.  The temporary air compressor for  the Emma mine, formerly at the  Mother Lode, is being installed this  week, to be used till the new electric  compressor, now being made in the  east, is on the ground. The lattei  will have a capacity of 12 drills, the  power to be furnished by the Bonning-  ton Falls concern.  Last week's B C. Gazette contains  notice of the incorporation of the  Phoenix Amalgamated Copper Mines,  Ltd., with a capital of $5,000,000 in  five dollar shares. This is the consolidation of the War Eagle with seven  other claims adjoining the Granby  group on the south, and it is understood that arrangements for getting the  company on its feet are in satisfactory  shape.    Midway'* Hospitality.  Midway citizens are counting on  seeing a large number of Boundary  people at the Victoria Day celebration,  May 24th. Midway has religiously  observed this event for years and Victoria Day at Midway has been an institution. This year the town proposes to eclipse all former occasions,  and energetic committees are at work  providing a fine list of amusements for  the day. Prizes aggregating $1000  will be hung up for competition and  lively contests are sure to ensue in  every department. Horse races, baseball matches, hose contests, and other  events have been fully provided for  and a good time and a big crowd is  looked for. The Midway valley is  looking its best, the citizens are hospitable, and excellent hotel accommo  dation awaits the guests.  MEETING OF  DOMINION CO.  To Be  Held On  May.  the J 2th of  GRANTED $100 TO  THE CELEBRATION  For Authorizing Balance Bond  Issue.  A special meeting of the Dominion  Copper Co. will be held in Phoenix  on Saturday next, May 12, lor the  purpose of authorizing the issuance and  sale of 300,000 first mortgage bonds  and about 228,000 shares of capital  stock, par $ 1 o. Books close May 3,  reopen May 13.  A company circular states that the  proceeds from sale of Dominion Copper Co. stocks and bonds now in treasury will be devoted to purchase of additional mining property and new  equipment, for development work, enlargement of smelting plant, railroad  connections and possibly for construction of new smelter.  The prior right of subscription is  reserved for stockholders, bonds and  stock to be sold together. Each bond  of $100 par value will be sold with 76  shares of the stock for $229.80.  It will be impossible to offer less  amounts of securities because the unit  of subscription must be based on ratio  of amount ot bonds to amount of stock  available. '  The outstanding stock of the Dominion Co. is about 270,000- shares,  par $10, while of ajiotal of $1,000,000  bonds authorized, $700,000 are outstanding. These ' are payable June  15, 1915, and the accrued interest,  if any, on the bonds will have to be  adjusted and paid by subscribers at  the time of the final subscription payment.  The circular sent to shareholders by  Warner Miller, president, and Leopold  Herrmann, secretary, by order of the  board of directors, from New York,  also states : '���  Notice is accordingly hereby given  that an extvaoidinary meeting of the  shareholders of the Dominion Copper  Co., Ltd., will be held at the registered office of the company at Phoenix,  B.C., on the 12th day of May, 1906,  at two o'clock p.m., for the purpose of  taking such action in the premises as  the shareholders may determine, and,  if thought fit, passing the following  resolution :  "Resolved, that the proposition and  plan of the directors of the company to  issue and sell $300,000 par value of  the company's first mortgage bonds,  and 228,000 shares of its stock of the  par value of $10 each, substantially in  the manner and upon the terms and  subject to the conditions set forth in a  notice to the shareholders dated April  25th, 1906, which is hereby referred  to, be and the same is hereby in all  things approved; and the directors and  officers of the company are hereby  authorized and directed to execute on  behalf of the company an underwriting agreement of the general form and  tenor of the draft agreement submitted  and read at the shareholders' meeting,  with such modification as to details as  may be approved by the company's  counsel; and all or any of the directors  of the company are hereby authorized  to sign such underwriting agreement  as underwriters, and personally to participate in any profits or benefits that  may accrue therefrom, notwithstanding  their positions as directors; and the  directors and officers of the company  are further authorized and directed to  execute any other instruments, and to  do any and all other acts, necessary or  appropriate fully to carry out the purposes of this resolution."  As the shareholders have previously  been advised, the company's charter  has been amended so that the shares  are now of the par value of $10 each.  The amendment has been confirmed  by the supreme court of British Columbia and the company no longer  has any recognized shares of the denomination of $1 each. The time  within which the holders of the old  certificates of $1 each may surrender  them and obtain certificates representing their interest in the present shares  of $10 each has been limited to May  15th, 1906. All holders of the old  certificates should, therefore, send them  in for exchange without delay.  Remit .906 Taxes On Miners'  Union Hall.  At Wednesday's bi-weekly meeting  of the city council there were present  Mayor Rumberger and Councilmcn  Oxley, Kane, Marshall and McKenzie.  In view of the fact that Phoenix-  Miners' Union N0.8 assisted materially  in grading Aetna avenue in excavating  for ihe new $20,000 hall, the council  decided to remit the city taxes on the  building tor the year 1906. It was  also decided to make a grant of $100  to the Dominion Day celebration to  be held here this year, and to do some  work on Aetna avenue, so that there  may be an approach to the new Deane  block, the new Burns block, Cottage  hotel, etc., on that street.

Wednesday evening a meeting of  those actively interested in celebrating  Dominion Day here this year, was held  in the large room in the city hall,  Chairman Shea, Secretary McJiachran  and most of the members of the com  mittees being present. The executive  committee reported that in a few hours  business men had subscribed $931,  with a nmber yet to be seen. Messrs.  Hower, Chisholm and McDonald were  appointed a committee to see the city  council, then in session, regarding a  subscription, and the committee  reported that the council had  granted them $roo for the celebration.  The secretary was authorized to  write to any and all concerns in any  way interested in this camp, giving  them'an opportunity to sbscribe, in  order that none should feel slighted  in the matter. John Mclnnis was  appointed to the committee on sports  in place of Mr. McPherson.  The secretary was also directed to  secure all necessary stationery for the  celebration, including advertising stationery, for the general use of business  men, and the meeting adjourned till  Thursday evening, May  17th.  Following are the chairmen  several committees in charge  various events:  Hose Racing, O. N. Galer.  Base    Ball    Tournament,  Sherbino.  Drilling Contests, John Mclnnis.  Horse Racing, W. R. Williams.  Log Rolling, R. V. Chisholm.  Caledonian Sports, H. A. Munro.  April's output from the various  mines of the Boundary district holds  up the 1906 average pretty well, notwithstanding the fact that the Granby  Co.���Boundary's greatest metal producer���has been running lighter this  month, owing to the repairs and enlargements going on at one or more of  the furnaces in the battery of eight.  During the 30 days of the past month  our mines sent out 107,000 tons of  ore. Comparing the output for the several months of this year, we have the  following figures:  January  104,378 tons.  February; ....    105,429   "  March ...112,638   "  April 107,798   "  of  of  the  the  M.  SUCCESSFUL MAY DAY ENTERTAINMENT.  Presbyterian   Church  Crowded With aa  Interested Audience.  The May Day entertainment and  concert given by the Ladies' Aid of  St. Andrews Presbyterian church last  Wednesday evening was an artistic and  financial success, the church being  crowded for the occassion, and the  net results being over $50. Excellent  music was furnished by Messrs. Almstrom, Cramer and Thompson, while  Mrs. Boucher, Mrs. Brown Mrs. Gordon and Mr. Thompson were accom  panists. The vocal solos, duet and  recitations were much appreciated, the  children in their drills showed evidence  of pains taking care, and the closing  dialogue made a hit with all present.  Following was the programme in   full:  Instrumental music Orchestra  Vocal solo    Robert Thompson  Shadow drill Fight little girls  Vocal solo Geo. D. Turner  Recitation Bertha Heidman  Vocal solo Mrs. J. E. Mills  Recitation,  "How   my    Grandmother  Danced the Minuet". Jean Crawford  Duet. .Mrs. Routhier and I. Crawford  Solo,"Little Black Me".

Nearly 2000 men are at work on  the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern  railway, and the grade is being pushed  forward as rapidly as possible between  Midway and Molson. A 200 foot  tunnel is being driven six miles west  of Midway, in Myers creek canyon,  and this should be completed early in  June. Considerable work remains to  he done on both sides of the valley in  the neighborhood of Midway, the line  crossing the valley on a 900 foot trestle, to be built. Two miles beyond  the Myers creek valley another tunnel  350 feet long is being driven. Heavy  work was encoutered along Rock creek  and Anarchist Mountain. One cut  completed north of the international  line involved the removal of 62,000  cubic yards of earth, and another  south of the line and near Molson  measures 70,000 cubic yards.  Total, 41110s 430,243   "  Granby's output for April, 68,503  tons, is nearly 5,000 tons less than for  either February or March, but May is  likely to see it close to 80,000 tons.  B. C. Copper's April output, 17,668  tons, is larger than any month this  year, being 1,000 tons more than for  March. As this smelter must close in  a short time to permit of extensive enlargements, for two or three months  the Boundary total is likely to be temporarily smaller. The Dominion Copper output for April, 20,000 tons, is  also larger than any previous month.  The several mines shipped ore in  April as follows :  Mine. Tons.  Granby Co    68,503  B. C.

Providence.  Skylark  20,002  35  So  30  60  70  April Total 107,798  Boundary's copper lodes are well  known to be low grade, but an  average of 25 pounds of copper per  ton of ore is believed to be on the  conservative side. Figuring on this  basis, there was produced 2,694,840  pounds of pure copper from Boundary  mines in April, or at the rate of more  than 32,000,000 pounds per annum.  At market prices the April output  would be worth not far from $500,000  for copper alone, or with the gold and  silver valves, something in excess of  that amount.  April School Report.

Mayor Schmitz, of  San Francisco, is a violinist of repute;  but he "hung up the -fiddle and the  bow" when the calamity struck Sari  Francisco, and went bravely to work  to aid the sufferers and check the adr  Vance of the flames. We would rather  be a Schmitz once - than a Neru a  thousand times.���Vancouver World,  i  ���Nearly every city or town in the  west that is putting forth special well  directed efforts to make its advantages  better known, is- reaping somebenefit  therefrom.    The leaven is working.  ��The legislature of Alberta ; has  settled the much mooted question of a  permanent location for the capital of  the new province, and settled it in  favor of the temporary location���Edmonton. It looks like a fair selection  for the entire province.  More strength than anticipated is  being manifested for the Lord's Day  Observance bill, now before the house  at Ottawa. It appears that smelters  will be excepted from the provisions of  the bill. 'I'he bill may have good  features, but it has yet to be demonstrated that people can be legislated  into being good- There will be some  great changes in the make up of the  average of humanity before that can  be accomplished.  -Not If as Rich is Racket.Her.  If you had all the wealth of Rockefeller, the Standard Oil magnate, you  could not buy a better medicine for  bowel complaints than Chamberlain's  Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy.  The most eminent physician cannot  prescribe a better preparation for colic  and diarrhoea, both for children and  adults. The uniform success of this  remedy has- shown'it to be superior to  all others. It never fails, and'when re?  ���duced'.-with water and sweetened, is  pleasant to take. Every family should  be supplied with it. Sold by all drug  gists.    "���    '  B.CMINING  Patrick Burns, the cattle king, has  announced his intention of building a  home at Victoria.' He doubtless  selected that point because of its dyed  in-the-wool somnolency, a place where  he would not be troubled and annoyed  by the noise and rush of the maddening throng. But, after all, Victoria  has joined the boosting column with  one of those roo.ooo clubs, and is  actually awakening from its Rip Van  Winkle sleep. . So Pat may change his  mind.         .   San Francisco is gradually rising  from its ashes, and bids fair, from reports sent out, to be indeed a city  beautiful when the rebuilding is completed. Meantime many great problems are being worked out there in  taking care of the thousands of people  rendered penniless and homeless by  the earthquake and fire. The city of  the Golden Gate will beyond doubt be  a scene of tremendous activity for  years to come���if not visited by another trembler.  -o  1  a -^ ������~���o  The Silver King mine at Nelson has  resumed shipping.  The Frank zinc smelter is-expected  to be in operation about June 1st.  Rossland ore shipments last week  were 6,780 tons, making 107,065 tons;  for the"year.  A. hydraulic: mining-company has  been formed in Asncroft with a capital  of $250,000 to operate mines'on Cunningham Creek, near Barkerville.  Frederic Keffer, engineer for the B.  C. Copper Co., Ltd., Greenwood, was  recently elected vice-president of the  Canadian Mining Institute for a term  of two years.  The Western Fuel Co. is credited  with securing a $7,00,000 option on a  bunch of anthracite coal claims, located  on Graham island; one of the Queen  Charlotte group.  What is said to be the largest hoisting plant in British Columbia is being  planned for the Centre Star and War  Eagle mines at Rossland, to be operated through the former.  Making Shareholders Glad.  The prospector locates the prospect.  The prospect attracts the promoter.  The promoter and prospector secure  the claim. The claim furnishes the  basis for a stock company. The stockholders, found through the efforts of  the promoter, provide the money. The  money, under the supervision of proper  officers, develops the prospect .into a  mine. The mine furnishes the ore,  which, properly handled, is turned into  money. The money so secured, after  payment of operating expenses, is the'  source from which is paid the dividends that make glad the hearts of the  stockholders. Such should be the history of each mining investment, remarks the Sandon Mining Standard.  Alaska.  S. F. Parrish, manager of the B. C.  mine in the hey day of its glory, and  afterwards manager of the LeRoi mine,  now makes headquarters at Denver,  and is consulting engineer for large  mining concerns.  R. B Kerr, for years city solicitor  of Phoenix, but who has spent the last  year in Oakland, Calif., and has been  stumping that state for the Socialists,  expects to return to British Columbia  with Mrs. Kerr and settle down in  Femie.  Norman H. Slack, at one time acting manager of the E. T. Bank in  Phoenix, is now manager of the bank's  branch at Acton  Vale,   Quebec, while  A. S. McCaw and A.

John Dorsey, who came into the  Boundary with the C.P.R. railway construction, had hotels at Coryell, Hartford Junction, etc., and went broke in  some mining schemes in Summit  camp, is now once more on the top  wave with some copper claims located  in the Bulkley valley in this province.  W. S. Fletcher, at one time in the  drug, sawmill, and other businesses in  Greenwood, is now trying to float land  shares in a cement factory yet to be  built in Tulare county, California. M  E.

For more that twenty years Mr.   J,  B. Massey, of 3322 Clinton St., Min.  neapolis, Minn., was tortured by sciatica. The pain and suffering which he  endured during this time is beyond  comprehension. ��� Nothing gave him  any permanent relief until he used  Chamberlain's Pain Balm. One application of that liniment relieved the  pain and made sleep and rest possible,  and less than one bottle has effected a  permanent cure. If troubled with scia?  tica or rheumatism why not try a 25-j  cent bottle of Pain Balm and see for  yourself how quickly it relieves the  pain.    For sale by all druggists.

THE OBSERVATORY  Thihqs Talkbd op at  Home and Kuiwbui  Occasionally the printer man has his  full quota of troubles with the types,  which can be perverse to a degree-land it ��� is. not always the devil's.fault,  either. Last week the Pioheernstated  that the sum. of ,$7,500 had ; been  raised for ai 24th of May celebration at  Midway. Of 'course,- it was an- error,  one of the regrettable kind, a figure '7  having, in some unaccountable manner,  been substituted for the'figure 1. The  Midway folk' did well, however, to  raise $1,500 for their annual event,  and there can be no question but that  the people of the Boundary will be  there in force to help them celebrate  the anniversary of the Good Queen's  birth���and Phoenix "will send its full  delegation.  MS  Henry S. Turner, at one time editor  of the Cascade Record, the Greenwood  Tinies and Phoenix Pioneer, and|  founder of the Grand Forks Sun,  writes from San Francisco to say that  out of 100 printing establishments in  that city, only three escaped the earthquake'and fire;' and that his was one  of the fortunate ones, although the  Federal- and -municipal authorities  practically took charge of his office for  the time being. Mr. Turner and  family, also. fortunately escaped the  calamity, but at the time of writing  stated tbat his nerves had not yet gotten . used 1 to ; the seismic disturbances  thereabouts.:  No wonder.

VANCOUVER, B. C.  Raffle (or Upright Piano.  M.   H.   Roy  states   that   he   will  shortly hold   a   raffle   for   an   upright  piano,   at   the   Butte   Hotel,   where  tickets can be obtained.  Perhaps you do not know it, but  the Job Department of the Pioneer  can and does turn out anything that is  manufactured with paper and ink.  Remember us on that next order.  If these lines should meet the eye of  Supt. J. S. Lawrence, ofthe C.P.R. at  Nelson, he might take notice that' he  will receive the thanks ofthe teamsters  hereabouts if he will have the. railway  crossings between Phoenix and the  Winnipeg mine put in passable condition. At present some of them are a  disgrace to Canada's greatest railway.  ���MS  The city has spent a bunch of money  putting in.a flume for Twin creek from  Second   to Church street���-which is a  decided improvement.    . But there are  those who think   some sort of a sewer  system should have been provided, and  will   be   required    ultimately.    It   is  claimed that for about $15,000 a main  sewer could be .built, with septic tanks  at some :point below the city, and that  debentures to do the work could easily  be floated.  ���  '  Citizens   and   taxpayers   are    still  wondering what^ that city team, that  costs something like $50 per month to  keep, was purchased for. Recently  they-were used to haul 12,000 feet of  lumber for the Twin creek'flume. Not  counting the cost of keeping the team,  merely the time of those employed at  the time, that lumber hauling, according to. records, was an ��� expense ol  about $19 to the city. The hauling  could have been contracted for at $1  per thousand ��� feet,,"which would have  saved the corporation just $7 on that  one job alone if it had not been the  proud possessor of a team. It would  have been cheaper to have left the  team in the stable.  .   MS  The Toronto Globe says that a  fierce boom is now on at Cobalt, that  every one there has the mining fever  in its worst form, and that every one  has the chance of being gold bricked  or sandbagged by others who have  everything to gain and nothing to lose;  that the local paper is free milling in  its editorials, full of pay dirt in its ads,  has high grade ore in its poetry and  has staked its claim to independence  in politics, starting out with 500 free  copies. Verily, the people in the cent  belt are coming on.  It is a pity that the whipping post is  not more in vogue, for there are some  that need it sorely. For instance, that  man, Pet<ir Pelton, the Finn that left  his sick wife and three small children  here a few days ago, taking the few  dollars she had, and giving it out that  he was bound for Alaska. The whipping post is too good for an animal of  that calibre, but if he had a good dose  of it, he might get a little humanity  knocked into him with every stroke of  the cat-o-nine tails. The poor woman  is absolutely penniless and ill as well,  being a charge on the province.  ���SO  Next Monday there will be the usual  change of time table on the C. P. R.  for the summer months, the passenger  train arriving at Phoenix at 3 p.m.,  and leaving at 3.15 p.m. AH of which  means that once more, as heretofore in  the good old summer time, it will be  an impossibility to get mail through  from Phoenix to Greenwood, or vice  versa, in one day. it being held over at  Eholt for-24 hours. And this brings  to mind that big surplus that the Grits  boast of in the postoffice department.  Whynhot'������-������use."some of it to handle  mails on the stage between Greenwood  and Phoenix ?  MS       .  \  Peck McSwain, of the Golden Star,  is sometimes a philosopher, and makes  a ten strike, as note the following bit of  gospel truth :  A man stopped us on the street the  other day and said we did not publish  all the news. We should say not/ In  the first place, there's somebody else  depending on us for a living. If we  published all that happened we would  be with the angels. In order to please  the people we must print only the nice  things said of them and leave the rest  to gossip. Yes, it's a fact, we don't  print all the news. If we did, wouldn't  it be spicy reading ? But it would be  for one week only. The next week  you would read our obituary, and there  would be a new face in heaven. All  the news is all right when it is about  the other fellow.  MS  In eastern Canada a new paper has  been started, called "The St. Mary's  and North Middlesex Argus and Review, and Granton, Lucan, Ailsa Craig,  Parkhill and Widder Advocate, and  Lucan and Exeter Gazette." It is reported that on the morning of first  publication, fourteen dead newsboys  were found stretched upon the pavement of the office. They had all  strangled in trying to call Ihe name of  the paper.  M��  An Okanagan editor printed an item  recently which stated that "the man  who is hugging the hired girl had better stop or his name would be published." In a day or two 25 citizens paid  up their subscriptions and told the  editor to pay no attention to the  foolish stories going around.
