Coldwell of Brandon is advertising the Golden Crown claim with  .plant and equipment, fpr sale.  J. D. Thompson, of Vancouver,  manager ofjthe Golden Eagle property  on Vo'canic mountain, visited the property last week.  The strike situation in eastern British Columbia coal mines remains unchanged and the coke,supply therefore  uncertain. The Greenwood smelter  kept going till this week, but closed  on Tuesday. ���  With the Mother Lode mine closed  the ore shipments dropped several  thousand tons this week. G*?nby  shipped 19,548 tons and the Sno jhpe  2,100 tons. Granby smelter treated  17V724 tons.  o  Referring to.the Dominion Copper  company; Stevens' Copper Handbook,  just issued, says: "The property, is  dangerously low in. grade, but has enormous pre bodies, arid, with adequate  capital and prudent management,  should become.a large and profitable  producer, in time."  Granby isevidentally being accumulated steadily, and I look for a sharp  advance in its price soon. With 15-  cent copper, Granby should be in a  position within a year to earn a good  investment return on a valuation of  $150 to $?oo per share for its stock.���  Boston Commercial:-  '"��� P. F. Roosa and W. ��� S. Lord, 'of  Boundary Falls, were in camp on Wednesday.; Mr. Roosa had just returned  from a business trip to ��� the coast in'  connection with the Dominion Copper  company, but had nothing to say as to  who would buy the properties on May  28th.  STEEL MAN MEETS  WITH ACCIDENT  Warren Mitchell Receives Severe Injuries in No. 2 Shaft  On Sundav afternoon Warren Mitchell met with an accident while coming up the No. 2 Granby shaft as a  result of which his jaw was fractured  and his collar bone and one of his arms  broken. J  Mitchell and his partner, known as  steel men, were coming up in the cage  of No. 2 shaft with an armful of steel  each, and, although neither of them  can exolain just how the accident occurred, it appears Mitchell slipped and  overbalanced in the cage which exposed his head and arm to the shafting.  He was taken to the hospital and,  although badly bruised, he is now re-.  covering satisfactorily and is thought  tn he" ��tit;;'bf danger;  (By the Publicity Committee)  The evangelistic campaign  is  <  now  W.

Leaves for Coast  Rev. G. E. Strachan went to Greenwood on Thursday to attend ihe district meeting of the Methodist church.  He leaves for the coast on Monday to  attend the conference.  Since the closing of the Mother  Lode mine last week the Granby company has been putting on a large number of men, and with the resuming of  shipping from the Gold Drop about  the middls of the month, there will be  employment for all the experienced  miners laid off at the/Mother Lode.  The fifth gerre'ral meeting of members  of the western^ branch of the Canadian  Mining institute1 will be held-at-Coleman, Alberta, on Tuesday, May 25th.  Members are urged to attend this meeting and are cordially invited to contri  bute papers or notes for reading and  discussion ; also notify E. Jacobs, secretary, Victoria, if they will do so.  The properties of the Dominion I  Copper company, in liquidation, will  be disposed of by public auction  in Vancouver on the 28th inst., sub  ject to reserve bids fixed by the judge  in chambers, in two lots. Lot "A"  will consist of all the company's prop  erty real and personal, except that included in lot "B." Lot "B" will consist chiefly of supplies on hand for the  mines and smelter and the benefit of a  contract with the C.P.R. respecting,  freight rates.  The initial payment on the bond on  the Bruce mine at Midway, was made  last week by the Donald Copper company to J. C. Haas, M. E., of Spokane, and S. M. Johnson, of Greenwood. A. S. Locke, of Winnipeg,  prominently connected with the Donald Copper company, and Mr. Haas,  who is superintending operations at the  Bruce, visited the property last week,  and it is understood were well satisfied  with the showing up to date. The dis  closure of a large copper gold ore body  is looked for.  Fire Team Mtkei Quick Trip  The fire whistle, brought the brigade  to a chimney blaze at the Alexander  hotel in a] hurry Tuesday afternoon,  but, fortunately, their services were  not required. Had the fire ever got  headway, with the high wind then  blowing, there would have undoubtedly  been much destruction of property.  McDonald's livery is to be congratulated on its expedition in reaching the,  scene withithe fire apparatus. It was'  probably'a record run.  B. C. Qome Bulletin  A new bulletin has   been issued recently from the  government printing  from the  office dealing with the game of British  Columbia. ��� It has > been;>prepared by  the .bureau of information, and will  prove very interesting to-those requiring information on the subject of game.;  The illustrations deal -largely ,with the'  big game; of the province, and incorporated in it is an article by Bryan  Williams dealing with the all year  round sport.  liteit Mining Stock Quotations.

New  West-  W. B. Cochrane, police magistrate,  of Grand Forks, was in the city yesterday.  BASEBALL ON THE  DANVILLE DIAMOND  Phoenix Runs Excursion Train  to Border Town  Phoenix baseball team had their  second practice of the season at Dan  ville last Sunday. A special train was  run from Phoenix to Danville, carrying  about a hundred passengers, reaching  the American border town about noon.  The weather being ideal the attraction resulted in making Sunday a gala  occasion in the city of the vale where  fruit vines cluster. People from Grand  Forks and all the other suburbs lined  the bleachers and the game concluded  amid tumultuous rejoicing in the home  city's victory.  The day's big event started with  Patsy Berner on the rubber lor Danville. But the Phoenix colts hit him  hard and cantered round the bases  with smiles like a bunch heading for  tlie free lunch counter. Joe Strutzel  was doing tbe curve stunt tor Phoenix,  while Litchfield, who wore the big mit,  kept the natives of the valley bewildered  with the finest brand'of coaching ever  introduced in the valley, while Sher-  bino was tearing off runs two at a clip.  And then something happened ! Gentle  reader, the score was 7-2 in favor of  Phoenix in the seventh when Kid Foley  went on the mound and started placing  the benders over the plate for Danville  in a manner that made the opponents  paw the air with the oat; he didn't  wear a sweater, though there may have  been luck in his flowing end tie. Then  followed a merry-go round, howling  wrent the air, and we could never see  the score again for the din of Danville  ites on the bleachers. Following was  line-ups :  Phoenix Danville  J. J. Strutzel    ���p��� P. Berner  Litchfield --c���Armstrong  C. McAstocker���ib-Michael  W. Perkins - 2b-McKay  V. M. Sherbino���3b-McDougall  J. Corbet  G. Biner  A. Strutzel  L.

The meetings are growing in interest as well as  in attendance, and those who attend  cannot but be benefited by the setting  forth of. Christian... teaching and Jhe  strong appeals;-to men andVwpmen* to '  follow the better life,    ^rt j^f"  'Prof. Lowe, in announcing triefrneet- ;  ings, said : " We. are not here to teach  any new doctrinej but only to tell the  old gospel story and; help those who  hear to a^igher plane qf life; to 'lift  those wr|A,'have fallen, and to help  those who are'Christians to be better  Christians."  This is the object of the meetings,  and there are evidences that ' much  good is being accomplished./  I The illustrated services ori Saturday  land Monday nights were especially interesting and effective. Prof. Lowe is  giving the life of Christ in threeparts,  one each Saturday evening.    \ ,   ���  The lantern views are amorig'the  finest ever shown in this, city and form ,  a powerful medium, for making clear  the"lessons intended to be conveyed.  The Sunday evening service was  well attended and\ Rev. Mr. Berlis  gave an impressive discourse -on Romans-I, 16: "I am not ashamed of  the gospel of Christ; for it is the powier  of God unto, salvation  to'every  one  that believeth."     ^Christianity   is:f a  power," he , said., .." It is the /weak  things of life that people are ashamed  of, and there is nothing of weakness in  Christianity"  Both    Tuesday;  and     Wednesday  nights' services, were well attended and  the close attention given to Mr. Berlis  as he spoke on spiritual truths, making  clear their utmost importance in influencing men's daily lives, was a proof of  the growing  interest with  which  the  ,people  of...Phoenix ,a^  messages of the Gospel from this earnest evangelist;' V:'"';"'/:,": :''  The regular services will continue to   .  be held in the opera house until May.^,'  16th.    The evening meetings begin at  8 o'clock, Sundays at" 7:30.' .���  '   There will be fine il lustrated services  on  Saturday  and   Monday evenings,  when Prof. Lowe will show some very  beautiful pictures, and on Sunday afternoon, ,May 9th,, at 2 o'clock, a special  ^meeting, for men will   be held aE the  opera house,  when Mr. J. A. Th6tn;  son, famous   for his work among men  in the East,  and his  marvelous conversion, will tell the story of his life.  Mr. Berlis also conducts meeting's for  prayer and Bible study in the Presbyterian church   every   afternoon  at  3  o'clock, except Saturday, Sunday and  Monday, and   Prof. Lowe is winning  the special favor of the young people  in his meetings for them in the Methodist church on Tuesday and Thursday immediately after school hours.  " The King's Business " has become  quite conspicuous in this city and is  pushed vigorously by those; who are  enlisted in "The King's" service.  There is no doubt that such an effort  can only be for the good of every home  and every citizen of Phoenix, and we  gladly observe the persistency with  which the seed for all that is good, .  noble and uplifting is sown by Messrs.  Berlis and Lowe, faithfully assisted by  the local ministers and church workers.  Heavy Losi Bv Fire  The little town of Westley, 30 miles  west of Nelson, on the line of the  Boundary, was practically wiped off  the map by fire on Tuesday, the loss  including the Yale-Columbia Lumber  company's fine mill, a large amount  of lumber, and all the residences and  other buildings in the place with the  exception of the company's office and  thc cook house The loss is, in round  figures, $100,000, of which approximately half represents the value of the  mill and about an equal amount that  of the lumb-r in slock.  An Evening  at Whist  Mrs. Thomas Oxley was the hostess  of a delightful progressive whist party  on Wednesday evening, when she entertained a number of local ladies of  the Maccabees order and friends. Her  cosy home was decorated and fragrant  with carnations, and Mrs. Oxley received in a most becoming gown of  white silk. The guests were soon intent in progressive whist, evincing keen  competition for the coveted first prize,  while others worked equally diligently  towards the opposite pole of success.  At the conclusion Mrs. A. D.McKenzie and Geo. Ellis held the high  scores and were each presented with a  pretty souvenir of the occasion���while  Miss M. Heidman and Dr. MacLean  won the consolation prizes. Cards  were followed by dainty refreshments  and ice cream served on quartette  tables. Among those present were:  Mi. and Mrs. J.

Stevens, ol  Houghton, Michigan, hai been re  ceived by the Pioneer. It is an octavo  volume of 1,500 pages, in brevier  type, but by slight increases in the  ���width-and"heigth'of the printed matter  on each page, together with a reduction in the leading, but without using  a smaller face of type, each page cai-  ries one-third more matter than formerly, and the new edition, with only  1,500 pages, contains one-half more  matter than the preceding edition,  which had 1,228 pages.'  The principal chapter of the book,  devoted to detailed descriptions of the  copper mines of the globe, has 1,185  pages, describing no less than 6,767  copper mines and copper companies,  in all parts, of the world, comparing  with 4,627 listed in the preceding edition. This long chapter, which was  unrevised in volume VII., owing to  fire, accident and illness, has been  completely rewritten, even the obitu  aries of- the defunct companies having  been improved by the addition of neat,  .verbal tombstones.

The very, complete glossary of mining  terms is reprinted from Vol. VII. The  final chapter, devoted to statistics, is  the most complete and compendious  given in any work dealing with the subject, whether issued   officially  or privately, and its authority has been recognized  officially and by the copper  trade.  It is rarely,,that a single work is  found of such general importance ro  suchJa great diversity- of, interests as is  the. Copper Handbook, which is practically an encyclopedia of the entire  subject of- copper, and, as such, is of  equal, interest to miner, metallurgist,  producer and consumer. To the investor or speculator in- copper shares,  it is as nearly indispensible as a work  of' reference can become. As usual,  the' Copper .Handbook is exceedingly  .frank in its comments, and the descriptions of mining, companies considered  by the author to be dishonest, are  marked by the utmost, limit of plain  speaking. That seven preceding editions, embodying language of the same  tartness, have appeared without a sin  ger for its party, spent itself in a column  denunciation of the Press editor.  The Press in a lengthy editorial gives  the Gazette a little of its own medicine  which, in part, follows :  " The Hedlty Gazette in its last edi  tion took another spasm somewhat re  semoling a catfit. In a column and a  half of frothings it viciously clawed tne  air in a vain effort to fasten its claws  into someone. A few weeks ago we  made the remark that it was a reflection  upon the brains of the province that  an irresponsible such as the one occupying the editorial sanctum of the Gazette should be permitted to run at  large; and the last maniacal ravings of  that journal fully corroborate our statement.  "That the editor in question has  been reduced to such a subterfuge as  to deal in trivial personal charges is  evidence of the direful straits in which  he finds himself. Any person capable  of descending into such depths is unworthy the appellation of either journalist or man.  "The paper or the individual who is  ever ready to attribute mercenary mo-  li-.es to the actions of another is worthy  of   nothing   but  contempt,   and   the  Gazette in its last issue has rendered  itself doubly contemptible  from  the  fact that its own  attitude is, ever has  oeen, that of the grovelling serf.    We  are averse Jtp dragging the names of  uninterested persons into a controversy  as the Gazette has done  that of Mr.  L.W. Shatford, M.P.P., but whyshould  tbe Gazette hasten to jump with both  feet upon another paper when it merely  imagines that .that paper included him  in its criticism if it were not propelled  by mercenary motives?    Is  not such  an action remarkable when Mr. Shatford, .who is quite as mentally acute as  the average individual, not to mention  our   clever   contemporary,    took   no  offence  at  our  article; and is it   not  further   remarkable   that   the  Gazette  should spread its defensive  wings.over  Mr. Shatford, altogether  unsolicited ?  Mr. Shatford is quite  able  to defend  himself when necessary, but the Gazette  must insist upon running to   his relief  and then coming to Penticton begging  bread as Ihe price of its services."

That this plan is successful  is proven by the fact that it has been  followed for six consecutive years, and  that the Copper Handbook now circulates in every country that has a postage stamp of its own, and is claimed,  by the publisher.witbout recorded contradiction,  to enjoy the largest circulation of any mining annual printed in  any  language.    Anyone interested in  copper,  or copper shares,  can   well  afford to write to Mr. Stevens, ordering  a copy of the Copper Handbook,with  out advance payment,  and subject to  approval after a week's inspection.  According to Stevens' Handbook for  1908, copper is found throughout the  entire length of the Rocky Mountains,  in Canada, the United States, Mexico  and Central America, and in the Cordillera of the Andes in South America  from the extieme north to Punta Arenas  on the Straits of.Magellan. The North  American copper deposits apparently  are richer west of the the main range  of the Rockies, and the principal tablelands between the Rocky mountains  and the Pacific.  lowed by a seeing Spokane tou  in the evening, beginninaiat 7 o'clock,  there is to be a complimentary banquet  in .the Hall of the Doges.  ...'."'   * Womin'�� ���Work  Could-anything be,a,better   illustration of the way women do their   work  as compared with-the-way  men  do  theirs,, than to look over, a village of  say, a thousand families, on Monday ?

Mr. Carson, superintendent for the  company, and who developed the Morning and Snowshoe mines into dividend  payers, said���"The Carney is the best  prospect in the Stevens Peak District."  He also said at another time "I would  not take 25c a" share for my stock."  Mr. J. F. Rice, mining engineer and j  expert of Spokane, Wash., after examining the property the second time,  had this to say in January, 1907 : The  Carney Copper group has probably the  best surface s/wtving of copper ores in  the district. The open cuts on the  upper croppi.ngs showing a face of ore  12 to 15 feet in width that will probably average J to 6 % copper. The  copper occurs as a carbonate and is  associated with a considerable percent,  iron : the iron apparently being in ex  cess of the silica contents. This forms  a inost desirable product ��� for smelting  and insures the minimum rate for treatment. All the indications point to the  existance of a large and valuable ore  body, which with tliefacilities it'possesses  for. mining and shippingjan be handled  at astlowr a cost as any ore in the Ceour  d' Alennes."  Mr. j. L. Martin has a laree block  ot this stock under option at an attractive figure and on terms to the right  people. Write or call on him for particulars.

DOMINION DAY AT THE BIG EXPOSITION  Seattle, Wash., May 6.���The State  Department at Washington has advised  the directo.s of the Alaska Yukon-Pacific exposition that " foreign troops "  will be permitted to cross the border  line und invade the exposition grounds  upon which ever date Canada may set  for the invasion.  This means that a great big feature  is to be added to the, Dominion Day  celebration on July ist, which is also  Dominion Day at the exposition, for  the plan is to bring the Duke of Con  naught's cavalry lo Seattle and give  Washington its first view of British  troops upon its own territory.  Canadians resident in Seattle are  planning to make Dominion Day the  second biggest day of the exposition  They admit that Seattle Day, June 12.  will.be the "very biggest," but they  promise to give even that event a race  for the honors.  Under the rules of the State Depart  ment it will De necessary for the visiting government to ask permission for  its treops to go upon United States  soil, but Ambassador Jas. Bruce has  been advised of this formality and it is  understood that he will make the nee  essary representations.  Every growing ambitious town is  composed of three elements���those  who work patriotically, vigorously and  intelligently for its advancement; those  who are in a state of apathy or indifference, and those who take a curious de  light in discouraging the effort of others  by ridicule, and by a persistent denial  that any progress can or has been accomplished, and by boasts of every  town except their own.

I Canfibt Speak Too Highly  of It.  ��� Mr. George King, 453 St. Bonis St  Montreal, Canada, a well-known bus-  iness man oi that city, writes:  ' "Peruna cured me from what the  doctors were afraid would turn into  Bright's disease, aud after you have  gone through the suffering that 1  have with catarrh of the bladder and  kidiioy trouble, and hayo been cured  you are pretty apt to remember the  medicine that did tho work.  . "Peruna is a blessing to a sick man.  Eight bottles made mo well and were  worth more than a thousand dollars  to me. I cannot tspeiik too highly of  it. It is now four years since I was  troubled, and I have enjoyed perfect  health since. Every miring and fall  I take a bottle of it and it keeps nie  well."

Indeed, catarrh ot the kidneys is more  . serious than catarrh affecting some of  tho other organs of the body.  In the kidneys it is liable to terminate  In Bright's disease or diabetes, both of  Which are recognized as very serious  ailments, if not fatal.
