The party, con-  switches and spur. to the Golden  Crown have been laid. A few days  ago the" start, was made for Phoenix,  but progress has bean slow," because  thev iron :��� was' iiat brought up' fast  enough. t'Hie Rawhide; was reached,  die Snowshoe passed, and yesterday  the rails. were being laid across the  Grold Drop Co.'s ground,..coming  around the curve, in sight of Phoenix.

The- betting  before the fight was 2 to-i on Jeffries.  The men's weights when' they entered  the: ring .were: Corbett, 182 pounds;  Jeffries, 200. Jeffries entered the ring  at. 10:20 p. iri; and was  minute later by Corbett. The men  shook hands and at 10:34 Were in  readiness for the contest to begin;..  About twice each year F. P. Buck,  of Sherbrooke, Que, visits Phoenix, to  inspect the several properties in which  he is heavily interested, viz., the War  iEaglc, Red Rock, Bald Eagle and  Lulu. In addition to this he is a  stockholder in the Old Ironsides, Knob  Hill and Granby Co.'s holdings. He  arrived in town last Friday with his  wife, also being accompanied by C. H.  Fletcher, a- prominent business man of  Sherbrooke, who is associated with him  in the War Eagle. While here the  party made their . home withC. G.  Buck, resident manager of the proper  ties, at the War Eagle." '  To a Pioneer nun,. Mr.   Buck��� expressed himself as eminently  satisfied  with the development thus far accomplished on the War Eagle.  Up to date  about 250  feet of underground work  has been  done,  consisting of a main  working vertical  shaft,   which' is now  down' too  feet.    Here a station  has  been cut, and drifting has begun.    To  . the west the drift is in over   100 feet,  .ind to the east about 20 feet.  ���  Everything   has   been   done in  a  permanent  manner,  and as .though it  was intended to operate  and develop  C-he  property  on an. extensive scale,  which   is  the   fact.    Something   like  $10,000  was spent in   plant and  machinery before systematic development  was undertaken.    The power drills are  operated by a Rand   10-drill duplex  compressor, one-half of which   has al-  read been installed,  and is giving the  best of satisfaction.    With it, of course,  there are  all   the  necessary   boilers,  receivers,'pumps, etc.���the  best  that  could   be obtained, and  having been  supphed by the Jenckes Machine Co.,  of Sherbrooke.      . ���: ;..:.,    -^:  ; The force at the War Eagle is being  increased gradually, several men having  been put on this week by Foreman  Duncanson. . As fast as the work will  permit, more men will be added.      -  Red Rock and Bald Eagle.  In addition to being president and  managing director of the War Eagle,  Mr. Buck also organized the-Red Rock  and BaldEagleCo. and the Lulu Gold  Mining Co., which claims adjoin.the  War Eagle. He informed the Pioneer  man that the War Eagle had better  surface. indications than the now  famous Knob Hill, and those who  have seen the Red Rock and Bald  Eagle, as well as the Lulu, assert that  the showings above ground on these  properties are simply remarkable.1  . Work has already been started on  these claims, and a working shaft is  being sunk, which is now down about  15 feet. It is the intention to exploit  these properties thoroughly. The owners have every confidence that this  followed a'ground, just on the other side of Knob  Hill :mountain, is valuable, and are  proceeding to prove it in a businesslike manner.    In a few days a tunnel  will be started on the Red Rock.  All of the work on the several claims  is under the dircpt superintendence of  Clifford G. Huck, the resident manager, who is a son of the- president.  Wat Ile'Thklcs of PNentx.   "'''���_  Mr..Buck: was much pleased svjth  the appearance of the town of Phoenix, which he had not seen since last  October, \*hen operations were first  started on the War Eagle. He said:'  "Phoenix has made remarkable  progress since I was here last fall. I  had expected to see some advancement and building, but nothing like  what you have here. There is every  evidence that you will have one of the  best towns in the Boundary. While  many of the largest ore bodies are of  low grade, I am perfectly satisfied that  they can be treated at a substantial  profit���certain "of it, in fact. The  people of the Eastern Townships section in Quebec, where my home is, are  conservative and careful. As you  know, they have invested largely in  and around Phoenix, and they are  satisfied with their investments. In  Toronto it is different, because they  have been taken in, many times, by  worthless mining investments in other  ���locJities."  In addition to his. mining interests  in Phoenix, Mr. Buck is associated  with a number of prominent enterprises in Quebec. He is pretident  and general manager of the Royal  Paper Mills Co., Ltd., of East Angus, Que., is interested in the water  and light i companies of Sherbrooke,  and also in a number of other concerns. ��� He is also part owner in the  Cannonball group of claims on Christina lake, which he says will soon be  equipped with machinery, and .developed, and' possibly managed from  Phoenix. It is also probable that' a  telephone line will be built from  Phoenix to the War Eaglei'  ��� Mr. and Mrs. Buck, who have been  enjoying the hospitality of their son  here for a week, leave. by today's  train direct for their home in Quebec.

A number  of the citizens of Phoenix are personally  acquainted with Mr.'Spear, and speak  of him in the highest terms. Mrs.  Spear'and their little girl will also  make their home here, the entire party,  being expected on or about the 1st of  June, about which 'time, it is understood, the bank will be opened and  ready for business in Phoenix.  First Ladles Aid Social.  The Ladies Aid Association of the  Presbyterian church, recently formed,  gave its first social last Wednesday-  evening, and it is needless to say that  it was a success. The room was crowded from early till Lite. All of the officers of the society, Mrs. Mills, Mrs.  Cramer, Mrs. Lee and Miss Ashley,  were present, and assisted in making  everyone have a good time. The social  was intended as an informal farewell  to Rev. J. McCoy, who leaves for his  permanent charge in Vernon next week.  Refreshments in the shape of every  kind of pie known, to the modern  housewife, with coffee, were served.  LATE STOCK QUOTATIONS.  ������  RESIDENCE LOTS  ...     ,. -i:       .... .

Foreman David Oxley, of the Winnipeg and Athclston mines, was in  town yesterday and informed tlie Pioneer that he would resume shipments  from the Winnipeg as soon as the spur  was completed to the mine. He has  also made arrangements to ship a car  of ore to the Trail smelter ,uui one to  the Granby smelter from the Athelstan.  This is all ore taken out in the course | noon  of development only, no sloping having  yet been done in either ol the properties. '  David H. Beccher, treasurer of the  Winnipeg Mining & Smelting Co.,  of  Grand Forks,  N. I)., arrived in town  Tuesday, and went out to the property.  As stated recently in the Pioneer,  the  board of directors -of the company were.  anything but pleased  with the closing,  down of the property a short.time ago."  by Manager Duncan Mcintosh���-which'  occurred   immediately after shipping  nine cars of ore, from which  satisfactory returns were received. ������'.-���>  Mr.'.Beecher's visit to Phoenix  was  for the purpose of starting work , once.,-  more.on the Winnipeg.    Duncan Mcintosh has resigned as manager,  and  John Mack, one of the original loca-1 ���  tors of the property, and a stockholder: .  in  the company,   has been.placed in.,  charge.   Yesterday steam was gotten.  up in the boiler and the No. 5   Cameron pump is' now hard' at work  get-'  ting the water out of the levels.-   It-is  estimated  that about three thousand-  feet will have to be pumped clear be-,  fore.development or .sloping can  be  .  resumed, which willbe with the  least  possible delay.    Mr. Oxley who is the  old stiperinten'deiit ��� ad-the '''Winnipeg,'  and of late has /. had.-"charge :sof '.the",  Athelstan development,- will'now..-be-'���  in charge of both properties..  Owing    to   the   iiiisunder'standihg .  among the directors abbut the' late'*  shut-down,   in laying track a few days  ago to the Golden Crown,   the branch  .-  spur was not put   down to the; Winni- :  peg.    It is understocd, however,   that  the Winnipeg officials are desirous  of  securing facilities for shipping at once,  and  the steel will-doubtless  be  laid-.''  with as little delay as possible.  Brooklyn May Start up Shortly.  For several veeksramors. have been, Y  rife of the starting, up.of work on the.  Dominion Copper Co.'s' properties   in  Phoenix cam])���the Brooklyn;  Stem-  winder,   Rawhide,   Etc.    W. R.  Wil-"���  Hams,.the company's accountant, who  is at present in charge of. affairs  here,  will neither  affirm or deny the report.  But the  rumor is'persistently  gaining "  currency. '   .-���"���-���  F. P.* Buck, of the War Eagle,  who- '  was in town in this week,- informed the '  Pioneer  man that he had .met  W. T.   ��� ���  Smith, a stockholder of the Dominion  ,  Copper Co.,   in Montreal  a few  days  since,  who  informed  him  that  Dan  Mann,  one of the  large owners, had  stated   that  work  on the  company's   ;  mines in Phoenix would  be resumed  at once.  There is, therefore, every reason to  believe that, almost before we knosv it,  every mine in Phoenix camp win be  working at full capacity.  Will Ship From the Crown.  It was the intention of the Golden  Crown management to  ship, the  ore ...  from   that   property   to  the Granby .  smelter at Grand Forks.    However, it  is probable that, as the Granby smelter  is not quite ready yet to receive ore, a  few cars will be sent over to the Trail  smelter.    Before the track was laid to  the Golden Crown ore bunkers, Manager Porter sent in a  request  for  ore  cars.    Up to last night they   had   not  arrived,   but  will   probably reach the  mine today or tomorrow, and   will   be ������  loaded rind sent down   without  delay.  No stoping will be done on the Crown  until the ore   now  on   the   dumps���  about 2,000 tons���is gotten out of the  way.  It appears that, as a matter ' of fact, *  the C. P. R. is not yet ready to properly handle the tonnage now offered  from the mines���xs nothing but box  cars can be obtained for shipping ore.  This ��� is a most inconvenient, ��� and  somewhat more expensive, arrangement for the mine owners, and it is to  be hoped that it will soon be remedied.  On the Athelstan.  A Pioneer man visited the Athelstan  claim in Wellington camp, a short  distance below the Winnipeg, a few-  days ago, where Foreman Oxley has a  double shift at work. Thus far about  350 feet of development has been done  on the property and it is showing up  better than ever. The two 50 foot  shafts have been connected by driving  about 100 feet, and considerable other  development has been . done. The  property is equipped with a 35 horse  power boiler and hoist, and the results  thus far, since resuming work, are encouraging to the owners, the Athelstan  Goid and. Copper Mining Co., Ltd.,  recentlv incorporated.  On and after June 10th the Boundary railway time table will he changed.  The westbound train will then arrive  at 11.20 p.m. instead of in the after-  .incl the outgoing train will leave  Greenwood at 11.30 a.m. This .will  give close connections with Robson  and the Crow's N'est line at Nelson.  ���SW-.ffM  "������Mm  ���v:iii  '.v't-a  fiV.^jiT'  A%-  SSL...  ���-W&-  :-; yihmm  '���^���:-,W$i,  ������v'r.-S^ti  ���������'.-.-'' i'&IJ'tSgW  ��� '^���'Wm----  '-':-'--0m:  '���:-'������', Mr'  '^'i'J^rW,^.:  ��� W$$M,:  ���       ;S#  /�����  ... l.��/,l-llltl  ������������:Wwl  ...; . ���' >h:'i;.pr$'::i  ���' -'IHfli  ���i'#|a  ��S-  '���<m  ���mm$  ���ii  ��� i:^ti?S  ,-M'i''*S I  '������i$M*i  ��� ��$$%  ��� afts  v.**-;,'  mii  K  Ml  >'IM'  ?$  ���&H\L  1  1   -s -w ^���* n-��-�� "-. *�� -t-  -~1  ,1  \    ' \Wmsf!irJ/*,Vit^i>imn Mm'il>m����fiowr'<��  i  :.,S  r -J   *��� *  THE PHOENIX PIONEER.  *  P  5ftl, 5  lit  Ha  p   >r  w'  ml  in  wA*  I  S -;  The Phoenix Pioneer,  )%��� 1,1 t* OS H VTVHI) l\ Jtl Till  ]��10NKKItJMJHLISIIIN(U:().

There is but little doubt  that  the  people of southern British  Columbia,  Irom this section to the coast,  need a  direct  connecting  lailway  link,   and  that such a link would be a great factor  in the upbuilding ofthe province.    It  is gencially   acknowledged  that   the  c ountry is rich in minerals and agriculture,  and   that eventually such   a  jaiiway would be a paying proposition.  For months  the C 1'. R.  has been  mnning  preliminary surveys through  the Similkameen, but it has,  so it is  said, found difficulty in finding   satisfactory grades.   Survey   jiartics   are  still in the Similkameen, and it is said  that the  C P. R. may. continue  its  Boundary line fiom Midway to Hope  or Spence's llridge next year.   So far  so good.  The platform of the government has  in it a plank providing for the construction of an independent railway  from Vancouver to the Boundary. So  well thought of is the idea that a con  servative candidate at the. coast says  he will also take steps to the same  end, if elected.  It thus appears that the proposed  railway would be a good thing, if it  could be worked out on business like  lines. The opjiosition vigorously attacks the plan of Premier Martin's,  by which he proposes to issue bonds  to defray the cost of construction. Mr.  Martin claims to be in possession of  data showing "that 'aT Iwo per cent  grade can be found through the Hoj>e  mountains,,but this does not trouble  the opposition as much as the practi-  -cability-of���financing --the-road.��� In  case the' road was built by the government, Mr. Martin claims with reason  that a sum equal to a bonus of $4,000  per mile, which was granted' by the  province to the C. P. R. for 'building  the Boundary railway, would pay the  losses, if any, for the-.first,-few .years  that the proposed road would be.operated, " '  Should Mr. Martin's government  he'successful at the j)olls, it is likely  that the, C. P.'R. will sttr itself to  finish the line out through the Similkameen as soon as possible. If the  government is not successful the C.l'.R.  will probably take its time about it.  Hut in any case we will have the  desired railway and perhaps two ol  them.  There appears to be a good reason  for the sudden flop of the Rossland  Miner in its change of front in regard  to Candidate Curtis, whom it now  opposes. The support of Curtis at  first was the editor's genuine opinion,  not having received orders in the matter. Hut pressure was brought to bear  in the cast, new orders were issued,  and now the anti-government editorials:  in the Miner are as frequent and long  winded as those in regard to the C. J*  R.   have   been.    There  is   always a  cause for every effect.,   " ^         t  WHAT THE EDITORS SAY."  The endorsement by the Phoenix  miners of Hon. Smith Curtis was given  with such unanimity as was never before seen in this district. His election  is considered assured.���Vancouver  World.  Mr. Cotton has taken the stump on  the Mainland.

The Boer war is rapidly degenerating into the' same sort of an affair that  the Americans have had and are having in the l'hillipines.  "Bobs" now has the Boers on the  run, and will probably keep them in  that condition until they make theii  last stand near Pretoria.  I-ast week tlie .voters of Republic  decided to incorporate by a majority  ofS7. It is the turn of Phoenix next���  by the grace of the next legislative  assembly.  When one dances the fiddler must  be paid. The cost of the Transvaal  war to the first of May, according to  the imperial official rejwrt, amounts to  ;��n6,250,000 sterling.  Once again the two notorious plug-  uglies, Corbett and Jeffries, have had a  fight to a finish, and once again Jeffries  is the .winner. Once again the sorting world "breathes easier.  Politics are also warming up on the  other side of the 49th parallel, .ind the  usual large crop of candidates, who are  willing to sacrifice themselves to save  the country, is ripening fast.  Mr. F. Carter-Cotton's newspaper,  the Vancouver News-Advertiser, states  that Mr. F. Carter-Cotton's, recent  jKilitical talk in that city was "A Strong  Speech,"'and that it was "(bar and  concise.,,    'i'l ere is an old saying that,  How many mines are there in the  world that the ore can be measured by  the acre? There are a few in the  Boundary district that are already attracting attention, and one of them,  the Knob Hill in Greenwood camp,  has $.11,500,000 worth of ore in sight  above its tunnel level.���Greenwood  '1 imes.  Any citizen of the Boundary country  who gets a chance to say a good word  or do a good action for the Granby  smelter company should, not hesitatae  to take advantage of the opportunity  to' put in a "boost" This company  has done more in the east to keep  attention riveted on this section and to  overcome the bad-effect on - investors  caused by a combination of detrimental  circumstances than any other factor.���  Frand Forks Gazette. ,,-i ��  The provinical party are trying hard  to make the people on the coast believe  that Martin borrowed a lot of his platform planks from them. If this is true  Joe is to be pitied. If the provincial  party' were returned to power it would  be a case of out of the frying pan into  the fire. Of the two parties give us  Joe's. The provincial party claim that  their policy is one ,of common sense.  Kaslo has been suffering from that  common sense for the |)ast year.���  Kaslo Kootenian.  Hon. A. G. Blair, minister of railways, is making a place for himself in  the hearts'ot the jjeople by opposing  the C. P. R. and other railway corporations in their high-handed policy  of side tracking townsites already  established and exploiting townsites of  the<r own. In his bill, which has just  been handed to the railway committee,  the railway committee of the privy  council \kill have the ]x>wer to change  the locations of railway stations so that  existing towns will not suffer.���Greenwood Miner,  The editor of the Alberta Sun,  published at I.educ, is gaining some  fame from his method of looking at  things.    Here is one of his latest:  "The editor of this paper has to announce that he is about to branch out.  While not abandonirg Lcduc altogether, he thinks it would be wise to  move or transfer his base of operations  to Strathcona, as there are more j>eo-  ple in that city, more advertisers, more  to write about and, what we value still  more, a greater degree of piety and a  deeper relig;ous spirit than obtains in  Leduc. This, together with theclose  proximity to Ochsner's brewery, should  make Strathcona a pleasant place to  sojourn during the hot months."  H. S. CAVLEY. W.U.

In addition to the  sixteen numbers on the dancing program there were a number of extras.  Much credit is due to the floor committee, consisting of Dr. G.S. Gordon,  D.J. Darraugh andj. E.W.
