After the Monday night match  he will leave immediately for Trail,  where he will meet Terry  Brown of  Portland, Oregon, on Victoria Day.  Then he will go to Revelstoke for a  match   with   Bobbie   Evans, a local  celebrity of that city.     On July 15th  at   Nelson,    during   Chahko   Mika  week, he will   battle   with   Frenchy  Vaise for the lightweight championship of Canada.  ���'    In   all  probability   Fred  Russell,  the well known hotel man of Grand  (Special to Phoenix Pioneer)  .

There will likely be a small fleet  of row boats on Long lake this  summer, several anglers having decided,to test their fishing ability.

Both Mullin and Lucca are in excellent condition, and are now just  putting the finishing touches on their  training. Sunday and Monday they  will probably just rest up.  .A special train will be run from  Grand Forks on the evening of the  bout, and there will be a large  number here from Nelson, Rossland,  Trail, Greenwood, Motherlode, Fife,  Grand Forks and other places.

Fifteen "men are working on the  Eureka mine near Sandon.   ���  The Rossland mines are doing  splendidly, producing about' 6,000  tons a.week. This ore is all treated  at the Trail smelter.'  During the past year there ha"s  been a decrease of 1,000 in the  number of prospectors' licenses issued in this province.  It has been reported that a shoot  ofzincoresix feet# wide has' been  found in the U. S. mine in the  Jackson basin, in the Slocan.  The Slocan Star mine  at   Sandon  is looking well,  according   to   late  rsports, and 50 men are   being  em- '  ployed on the property.  The 18th general meeting of the  members of the western branch of  the Canadian Mining Institute will  be opened at Nelson on Thursday,  May 28th.  Reports of a big gold strike come  from the town of Hope. The location i.s 16 miles from that town in  the Cociuahalla valley. In one  place a six foot lead of gold bearing quartz was uncovered.  Zinc shipments from the Slocan  for April this year amounted to 567  ton's, as compared with 344 tons for  the corresponding month last year.  The Standard and the Van Roi  mines at Silverton were the principal shippers.  At the Noble Five mine in the  Slocan repairs are being made to  the tramway, and the   management  pfTete Jaune Cache are expected  to receive more attention next summer than they have had in past  years. Some of these claims are  owned by New York, New Brunswick and Calgary capitalists.  George Clothier was up to Hazel-  ton from Prince Rupert recently  and made arrangements to take a  lease on the Silver Cup property'on  Nine Mile creek, near New Hazel-  ton. He will go back in June and.  will then go in with his supplies  and start the work.  For the first four  months   of the  year, ending April 30, the Standard  mine at Silverton shipped   in   crude  ore and concentrates  approximately  5,000   tons,   most  of    which    was  handled at the  Trail  smelter.    Be  sides a large amount of zinc ore and  concentrates was  shipped   to   Bart  letsville, Oklahoma.  The Grand   Forks  football team  trimmed the Phoenix boys at Grand  Forks last Wednesday in a score of  6-0.    The   Phoenix  boys   attribute  their defeat to the lack of practice,  and 'also to the fact that two of their  [players were injured in the first  ten  minutes of the game.    Four  auto-  mobiles   took   the   Phoenix  players  down to the Forks.   A return match  will be played here next  Monday,  May  18th, when the  Grand   Forks  boys will come  up  on   the   Lucca-  Mullin special train, and return after  the boxing contest.    It is admirable  the way in which the' Phoenix   boys  accepted   their  defeat,   one   player  saying "well, we were defeated, but  WORLD'S SUPPLY OF  COPPER VERY SHORT  Conditions Point to an Appreciable Advance in the Price  ��H5 of the Red Metal.  with a little practice, we will doubt-  less turn defeat into victory next  game."   "*"  2 The world's production of copper  for 1914 will be 25,000,000 pounds  less than the amount demanded by  consumers, according to carefully  compiled statistics by, Edward V.  Carter, with Sharp & Irvine, mining  brokers, Spokane, who has been  gathering data on the copper situation for the last several weeks.

In 1886 there was a big  placer gold excitement in that country and the camp's production for  that year amounted to $193,000.  Oscar Lachmund, general manager of the B. C.

Hughes is well known in Phoenix,  he and his wife having lived here  for a considerable time.  \  Wedding Bells  The marriage of V. S.   Goodeve,  copper surplus has1 fallen from 359,-    '  000,000     pounds    to    110,000,000   '  pounds,"says Mr. Carter.     "At the  present rate bf consumption this is  but a 15 days' supply.  "The first quarter of 1914 showed  a production of  11,000,000  pounds  less   than   for   the    corresponding  period   in    1913,   and,   allowing   a  slight decrease for the remainder of  the -year, the   total output  will   be  about 1,650,000,000  pounds, while  consumption   for  the   same  period  will  be   1,675,000,000,    leaving a  deficit of 25,000,000 to be  supplied  from the surplus stock of 110,000,-  000 pounds.

Our Motto Is���Prompt. Service and Courteous Treatment.  Another Zinc Smelter  In all probability  another experimental zinc plant will be   erected in  the   Kootenays.     A   proposition   is  now on to   build   a   10-ton   demonstration plant at Trail, where   suitable roasted ore could   be   procured  and also   cheap   power   and   a   free  site from the  snielter  people.     The  demonstration   plant  would    be  of  little commercial value when the  30  days    of  demonstration     run     was  completed..   Possibly   a   portion   of  the   experimental   plant   at   Nelson  can be utilized.     If this\plant   is   a  success, the erection of a   commercial smelter capable of handling the  ore of the   district   will   be   next   in  order.     Such "a plant would   probably cost $1,000,000 or   more.    The  Dominion government will be asked  to assist in the erection ot the demonstration plant and for   the   carrying on of the experiments.  An effort is being made by the  comVnittee responsible for the improvements on Phoenix ball grounds  last year, to wipe off the indebtedness.    They will raffle an auto.  The attendance at the dance Thursday evening was not up to what it  should have been, the scarcity of  ladies being particularly noticeable.  The music by the Ironsides 7-piece  orchestra was excellent, and it is to be  regretted that there was not a larger  crowd out to enjoy it.  Dr. J. S. Henderson, of the Social  Service league of the Presbyterian  church, gave an illustrated lecture at  St. Andrew's church last Tuesday  evening. The subject was ,well presented, and those who attended were  well pleased with it.  Miss Hannah, a trained maternity  nurse of Greenwood, was called upon  to assist the staff of the Phoenix hospital last week for a few days. Miss  Hannah's kindly disposition won for  her many friends while in the employ  of the loeal institution.  G. W. Rumberger left Thursday for  Spokane, where he will spend a few  days looking after some business matters. Mr. Rumberger has disposed  of his interests in Regina, and will  probably spend most of the summer  in Phoenix and the Boundary.
