COMPANY'S TUNNEL  Tunnel Now in 665 Feet.���Depth  from Surface 360 Feet���Ran  into Copper-Gold Ore.  O. Lofstad, president of the Argo  Mining and Tunnel company, was a  visitQr in Phoenix during the week  and furnished  a Pioneer representative with a few interesting  facts as  to the work so far accomplished on  the five claims comprising the company's holdings, which are situated  practically on  the N.E. outskirts of  Greenwood...-within  a   mile   of, the  ���J3. C.    Copper   company's,   smelter.  Operations were commenced in earnest about  two years ago, and during that time an immense amount of  exploratory and development work  has been done, about $15,000 being  expended in this important phase of  a mine's-development.      The length  ofthe   tunnel" so   far driven   is 665  feet from  the portal and   the depth  from   the surface   360   feet.      Considerable   prospecting   on   the   surface has also been done nnd several  shafts   ranging from  30  to 200 feet  have ..been   sunk  at various  points.  Galena   is the   product   sought  for,  but in the course  of drifting several-  bodies    of   low-grade   copper-gold  ore, an excellent flux, were encountered, one of them* measuring seven  feet.   According to the best authorities in the  district, all the work, including.the  scheme  of prospecting,  has been well thought out and carefully  planned, and   by   all   the laws  that govern metaliferous mining the  lead should now be within a reason-  sonable    striking   distance   of .the  point already" reached.,,"^   "' ,   _. . ,��  #'  Gets Big: Bear '" *;  Elmer Ness returned on Friday  from Christena, where he has been  for the past two weeks.

There   was  a  large   number of knights  and their  ladies   present, which   with  a small  number of invited guests taxed" the  capacity of the rooms.     A excellent  program   commenced the entertainment, consisting of vocal and instrumental     music   and   a    recitation,  concluding with an amusing reading  by Mrs.   A.   K.   Geddes, the author  of   which   has    not   yet been    dis-  coverd.    Aftei the conclusion of the  musical  program, the   carpets were  taken   up and   the   hall   cleared for  dancing which was kept going with  but a short interval for supper, until   dawn  the   following   day.

Caldwell, Minister of Education   in   the provincial cabinet  of  Manitoba, who was   in Phoenix recently examining the Golden Crown  property of which he is the principal  owner, in the course of a short talk  with  a  Pioneer representative, said  that the~"principal reason of his visit  to British Columbia, was  to be pre-  sent aL  the annual general  meeting  ofthe   Lucky Jim  ijinc Mines Ltd.,  which took  place  at  the beginning  ofthe month, at Kaslo.     Mr. Caldwell   expressed    himself   as    being  gieatly  pleased with   the   condition  of affairs  at   the Siocan   mjne,  but  had little   or   nothing   to   say in reference to the Golden Crown, which  at one  time   was  numbered   among  the   shipping  mines   of this  camp.  The    minister    jocularly   remarked  that everything of any value seemed  to have   been .carried away, "most  likely by people who required them."  Mr. Caldwell  stated  that cverthing  was now   in   readiness   for shipping  at   the   Lucky Jim,   and   they were  only awaiting the completion of the  three-mile spur which  is being built  by  the  C.P.R.      The distinguished  visitor   spoke   in  hopeful   terms   of  mining   in   British   Columbia   as   a  whole,   and emphasized  his unfiag-  coast points. The ladies evinced a  considerable interest in the town  and accompanied the gentlemen in  their visits to the mines. One of  them commented on the orderliness  of the town, which by the way  appeared to impress '^very favorably  every one ol the visitors.  SCANDINAVIANS WILL  HOLD BIG FESTIVAL  Dorkins-Roberts  In the   presence of a  few friends  ofthe  bridegroom,   the wedding of  Miss Ellen Dorkins, a recent arrival  from the old country, was celebrated  on Friday afternoon,   May  10th, at  the residence of J. J. Nixon, pastor  of  the   Phoenix   Methodist church.  In the  unavoidable absence of Miss  Mabel  McKeown, Mrs. J. J. Nixon  attended   on   the   bride,   while Jos.  Butcher, officiated Vas    best   man.  After   the  conclusion of the fateful  ceremony,   the company   adjourned  to   the   diningroom    of  the/ King's  hotel, where  a sumptuous wedding  repast' was   served,     enlivened   by  felicitous speeches trom the parson  and A.

Scandinavian  Aid   and Fellowship Society to Assemble at  Beautiful Christina.  f  :i  Granby's Blister Copper  Shipments of blister copper from  the Granby company's smelter at  Grand Forks for the pas,t week  amounted to 528,000 pounds, bringing the total shipped for the year  up to 8,338,500 pounds.  Preliminary  meetings  have been  held   within  the   last  few  days by  all   the   leading"Scandinavian   residents   of Phoenix,    Grand    Forks,  Greenwood, Cranbrook and Nelson,  for   the   purpose   of   otganizing   a  monster gathering   to take place at  Christina lake,  on  the 24th of June  next.      The celebration is under the  auspices   of   the   Scandinavian   Aid  and Fellowship  society, and  is   the  fifth  annual  gathering    in B. C.   of  that   benevolent   order.     It  is   proposed and confidently  expected that  the coming event, or Norse festival,  as it is called, will eclipse all others  that have   taken place,   not only in  B. C., but in the Dominion.  Among  many   of    the   interesting   features  proposed, will   be a  tableau depicting the funeral of a viking.   In ages  past it was the custom of the Norsemen to lay  the body' of a slain warrior   on   one   of  their  galleys,  and  to   the   accompaniment   of- warlike  songs and other ceremonies, set fire  to  the craft   and turn   it loose with  the tide.  i  .11  I  3  '?  ���i  ALIGHT  PALE BEER  Is Splendid for Family Use  That is the kind we have  for YOU,  Are You Run Down in Health?

Turning the conversation   to  affairs in   his home  province, it was  plainly to   be seen   that  our visitor  was a loyal Manitoban first and last.  "The   progress of  the  wheat province could be described iii no other  word  than  remarkable; persons revisiting  that province would be.astounded   at   the  enormous   strides  made within   the last few years; its  wealth   was   apparent on   all   sides  and   it   was   impossible  to   foretell  what even a few years would bring  forth.     The  transformation  around  Winnipeg was  difficult  to describe.  It had   to be   seen   to   be realized."  The people of Manitoba were greatly interested in the new government  project   of  a     railroad   to    Hudson  hay,   construction  of which   has already begun.     The line commences  at   the  Pass at  the crossing   of the  Saskatchewan   river,   and   will   terminate   either   at Port Churchill  or  Fort Nelson,   both   of which  are on  the shores   of Hudson  bay.  Touching lightly on the resurrected Manitoba  school   question, the   minister  said   that   some  slight   concessions  had been granted the Roman Catholic   church,    but   in   the   main    the  general    scheme      of    non-secular  schools    had    not    been    interfered  with.  Among those comprising the  party were Mrs. Caldwell, Hon. W.  Howden, Attorney-General for the  province of Manitoba, Mrs. Howden  and Mrs. Hamilton, wife of the  Mayor of Neepawa. N. J. Carson,  a personal friend of the visitors  and himself an old Manitoban, did  the honors for the town and conducted the party to the various  points of interest.

Diamond drilling and development work have proved the Hidden  Creek ore bodies to be both larger and higher in grade ^^^  believed to be when the property was purchased. Over 12,000,000 ton,  of self-fluxing smelting ore, which will average over 2% copper and carry  30 cents a ton in gold, has been demonstrated.  It is figured that the company will make copper at Hidden Creek  cheaper than it does at Phoenix and Grand Forks. Mining costs will be  about the same; but there will be a saving of 23 cents a ton on ore transportation, and only half as much coke will be required to smelt a given  tonna-e of ore. The cost of transporting a ton ot bullion to the eastern  refineries will be 50 cents less than it is from Grand Forks.  The new plant, which will cost $1,700,000, will be completed within  18 mlilr: two y'ears. It is expected to turn out 30,000 000 poun s  of copper annually, giving Granby a total yearly production of 4o,000,000  to 50,000,000 pounds. .  General Manager Graves says Granby is now treating a larger tonnage of ore at Gnmd Forks, over 3,500 tons daily, at a lower cost per  ton. This ore yields about 1S>< pounds of copper and /oc. in gold and  silver per ton. He says the future outlook for Granby is brighter, and  'that its assets are worth more than at any previous tune ,n the company s  lmlTfigure that when Granby gets itself into, a   position   where  p,'oduce��451000,000 pounds of copper annually at a cost  IviH earn $18 a share yearly on a 16-ccnt   metal market, or *9 on lo-cent  copper. ^^^ British Columbia Copper Company  The British Columbia Copper company earned about $71,000 in March-  Profits were given out as $56,000 at the end of the month; but the appreciation of its copper in transit from British Columbia to the refinery  an advance of over a cent a pound in the price ol the metal made .t  ecessary to revise the figures as stated. Unless Bnt.sh Columbia Copper directors decide to purchase the Voight property at Princeton nnd  Pay for it out of earnings, the company will  soon   be in a position   to re-  sume dividends.

Some time ago 1 stated lha  ore had'been encountered in this property which carried 8/ copper and  SI 1 -old per ton. Further work leads the management to believe that a  veryW body of ore is being developed which will average about ^  copper and $3 to $8 a ton in gold. The ore zone in the: V o.ght property  is VS7 feet wide. There is a considerable tonnage ot silhcates and carbonate, of good grade on the surface, and the workings at a depth of JO  to 100 feet are in primary sulphides.

" We were so grateful for this cure,  and Zam-Buk acted so differently to  any other of the numerous remedies  we had tried that 1 thought you ought  to know of this case.

Saturday, May 18, 1912  The Case Against the Hindu  "The Hindu  is a fellow subject,  but not a  fellow citizen," said  H.  H.  Stevens,   M. P.   for Vancouver,  in one of his vigorous speeches  in  matters,  the men employed in the'  Canadian mill, reside in Sumas, on  the American  side, coming over in  the morning and returning at night.  Canada therefore derives no benefit  from   the   men.      The   men   when  challenged by the custom authorities in their endeavor to stop them,  state that they are only coming over  for a day, and the officials are powerless to act.     Still another complication,   which  works a hardship on  the officials in endeavoring to prevent the men coming in, is the fact  that   Dr.   Chester,   the   Dominion  veterinary   surgeon,   has his   residence in   Sumas on the American  side.    This fact makes it  illogical  for the authorities  to stop a work-'  ingman  from working on the Canadian side and living on the American  side, when  a government official of  the  Dominion   can   reside  on    the  American  side and pursue his daily  duties in Canada.

Angle  ^UNSHRINKABLE^  //'���aae   Afark  Criticism of Titanic Inquiry  The Liverpool Journal of Commerce in an able article on the  doubtful authority of a foreign government to hold a sworn inquiry into the loss or stranding of a British  ship, has the following to say in  reference to the matter :'���'..  /"There  can  he no question but  that  under ordinary circumstances  the   action   taken   by   the   senate  would   have   been   regarded   as   a  positive     breach    of   international  iisage, for the vessel  not only flew  the   British  flag,   but the accident  happened  on' the  high  seas,  facts  Which   should   certainly have influenced the authorities of the United  States in their determination to hold  a  sworn   investigation   before   the  witnesses   returned   home   to   this  country.

General Aaents fur CanadiT  Complications on Boundary Line  A coast contemporary says that  if the reports from Huntingdon are  correct in connection with the lumber industry, special legislation will  no doubt have to be passed by the  Dominion Parliament, which will  not only affect that district, but the  entire boundary section.  It is stated that on the American  side, near the boundary line, a mill  owned by the American Lumber  Co., is located. This mill saws up  logs into rough lumber. On the  Canadian side, a short distance  from the American mill, is located  the planing mill of the Electric  Lumber company. The rough lumber is hauled by team from the  American side, coming into Canada  as rough lumber free of duty, and  afterwards planed and made ready  for shipment by the Canadian mill.  As the aim of the Canadian government in placing a duty of 25 per  cent on finished lumber was to force  the American companies to establish mills on the Canadian side, it  would seem that there is a serious  hitch   somewhere.      To   complicate  terror will be added to the shipping  industry, and all our previous ideas  about the status of a ship on the  high seas will have to be recast. In  this case the situation is further  complicated by the fact that the  senate committee, at least through  the action of its chairman, have  from the first shown a bias and  a prejudice against the owners and  officers of the Titanic worthy only  of a howling, unthinking mob,  anxious to find a victim, with the  result that discredit has been thrown  on the whole proceedings, and any  real good likely to ensue from a fair  and complete investigation most  seriously hindered."  Blow to B. C. Coal Industry  Hon. Wm. R. Ross, provincial  Minister of Mines and Forests, was  in Ottawa, recently, interviewing  several cabinet ministers in regard  to British Columbia affairs. The  chief mission of Mr. Ross relates to  the new fire regulations which have  been promulgated by the Railway  Commission. His main objection is  to a regulation compelling all railways in B.C. to use oil after December, 1914. He fears that it will be  a serious blow to- the growing coal  industries of British Columbia.

White, ,one of New Westminster's real estate men, visited his  brother, A. A. White, this week. He  left on Saturday for the "coast.  town. He claims that they have never  yot been affected by summer frosts,  and he is so confident of the past success of his experiment that he isclear-  ing more land with a view to enlarging his orchard.  Owing to the increased patronage by  the Phoenix public of the motion picture entertainments, the management  as a further inducement have decided  to introduce a still longer program  than formerly, a thousand more feet  of picture film being added to each  evening's show. '       '  To obviate any discomfort in the  event of the weather being too warm  on the night of the dance, the com-  mitteee have gratefully accepted the  courteous offer of the Phoenix Water  and Light company, to install a number of electric fans /in the ballroom.  The fans are being installed by Win.  Hower, local electrician of the company.  The streets on Saturday evening  were pleasantly' enlivened by the  strains of music provided by the Phoenix city band.' The selections rendered were of more than average  merit, and must have convinced the  most sceptical of tho bandsmen's increasing proficiency in the use of their  various instruments. The appearance  of the band was greatly appreciated  and further periodical out door concerts are eagerly anticipated.  W. A. -McKay, proprietor of the  well-knowu Phoenix dairy, situated  on the Greenwood road, close, to town,  evidently has not lost faith in the ultimate future of Phoenix, and as tangible proof of the faith which is within  him, he is now building '.a large and  commodious residence, facing the  wagon road. The structure is a two-  storey one, measuring over all 22xH0  feet, containing nine rooms and is to  equipped with hot and cold water systems. Amid all the croakings of impending disaster, Mr. McKay's enterprise stands out in pleasing contrast,  while the hope of all his many friends  is that he may enjoy the shelter of his  new residence for many years to come.
