C.  ^^m&^%^^^^^'  *  EMOV. MACKINTOSH  Held   a Great Meeting Last  Evening in Phoenix.  STANDIM ROOM WAS AT A P8EMIUM  With Mayar Ooadeve, of iRossUnd, a Very En-  Entnoslastlc Cinpalgn Gathering Waa  Hsd'"R.B.K��rr.AlM Spoke.  This week Hon. Chas. H. Mackintosh, one of the candidates for  the legislative assembly, in opposition  to Hon. Smith Curtis, has been addressing the voters of the Boundary.  Last Saturday he held.a meeting at  Crand Forks, Monday at Columbia  and Wednesday at Greenwood: R. B.  Kerr, of Phoenix, appeared on the  platform in each place in opitosition to  Mr. Mackintosh, and at Greenwood'  Mr. Curtis was also present. This  week the meetings have been gotten  up by Mr. Mackintosh ' and his supporters; Next week Mr. Curtis will  hold meetings and invite the Mackintosh-people to be present. All of the  meetings this week have been well attended and it appears that the voters  have given close attention.  ���.'Last'night the meeting was held in  the spacious hall of Phoenix Miners'  Union, which notwithstanding the  drenching rain, prevailing, was crowded to the doors. Besides Mr. Mackintosh, Mayor Goodeve spoke. Smith  Curtis.was unable to be present, but  R. B; .Kerr'washeard in his behalf.'  .The chairman, Mr. Punch, introduced Mr. Mackintosh, who opened  the ball and spoke for an hour. He  said that although he had been called  by his opponents the deadly enemy of  the workingmen, he had been a friend  of labor for over 25 years, and quoted  a telegram from a leader among  workingmen at Ottawa to this effect.  He referred to Ralph Smith, and what  the latter has said in criticism of Hon.  Joseph Martin at some length, and also  took up the Chinese and Japanese  question. As usual, the eight-hour law*  came'in for its full share of attention,  and the governor fully explained his  position in regard to it, and how, if  ejected,"he proposed to uphold it in  every way. J  Mr. Mackintosh asserted that Mr.  Curtis had taken advantage of the  former's absence to make several statements that were not facts. In this  connection he spoke especially of ibis  connection with the exposition at Regina, and also went into details about  the famous Sunset mine deal, in which  he and Mr. Curtis were both mixed  up. He did not believe in state ownership of railways, and ridiculed Mr.  Martin's proposed coast to Kootenay  railway.  The governor paid several pretty  compliments to the ladies, of which  there were quite a number present,  and was repeatedly applauded by the  audience for the sentiments he expressed. He evidently had a large share of  the audience with him.  Mr. Kerr lor Mr. Curtis.  R. B. Kerr, who spoke on behalf of  Hon. Smith Curtis, was the ..only one  to represent his side of th**fe political  issues. He was cheered to the echo  when he arose, showing that  th*e min  ister of mines also had many friends  and admirers in the. audience. He  was allowed '45 minutes to 'explain' his  views, which he did in a style that  seemed to please a large number.  Mr. Kerr assailed Mr. Mackintosh's  platform and policy, especially in regard to the stand he quoted him to  have taken two months since on the  eight-hour question, which he claimed  was quite different from' his attitude  now. He stated that Mr. Mackintosh  was in effect running as a Tumerite,  and asked the audience if they wished  to elect that kind.of a man���to-which  many answered, "No." He also spoke  ofthe final success of some of the  Australian colonies in re-enacting dishallowed acts in regard to, Chinese and  Japanese. He thought.that the great  aim of the Mackintosh shakers" was to  conceal the real issues before the people.  Mayor floodeve's Sp'eadld Speech.  Following Mr. Kerr, the governor  made a few remarks to refute some of  the former's statements, and then  Mayor, Goodeve, oi Rossland, took the  floor. Mr. Goodeve is by far the  ablest and most polished platform  s|)caker yet heard in the Boundary in  this campaign. He never gets rattled,  never hesitates, and is ever ready to  turn an interruption to his own advantage. He usually closes the political  performance where he speaks with a  masterly peroration on behalf of his  candidate, Mr. Mackintosh, and last  evening was no exception.to the rule.  Mr. Goodeve proceeded to tear  down Mr. Kerr's argument, piece by  piece, to his own satisfaction and that  of a large number of others, if the applause is any criterion^, He went exhaustively into the merits of the coast  to Kootenay railway plank of the  Martin platform, and accused Mr.  Martin of not being sound on the  eight-hour question, quoting Mr. Martin's own words to prove his charges.  He gave Mr. Martin's proposed re-enacting scheme of disallowed : acts a  bitter scoring, especially as regards the  Oriental labor question, and did the  premier up to a rich and golden brown  generally. Rossland's chief executive  speaks clearly and interestingly, and  was thoroughly at home with his subject   ... '������'������.:,;'  To a Pioneer man-Mr. Mackintosh  stated that all over the riding everything was going his way,.and,he,had..no  doubt whatever of his'success- at the  polls two weeks from today. lie said  that Rossland was sure and now hej  was cofindent of the Boundary. On  the other hand, Mr. Kerr is of the  opinion that Mr. Curtis will undoubtedly be elected.  Still Oa the List.  A solicitor in this riding acting on  behalf of the estate of a man who has  been dead for some time, has received  the following communication, addressed, to the deceased by the well  known Rossland offcer:  "Dear Sir,���I am to inform you  that objection has been taken to your  name remaining upon the voters' list  for the Rossland riding of West Kootenay, upon the ground that you have  been dead for some time. You will  kindly let me know by return mail  whether you are dead or not. If you  are dead, let me know, and I will  strike your name off, but if not, of  course your name will remain as it  is.      Yours truly,  "f. Kirkup."  RAILS TO ORE BINS  Laid To Old Ironsides Last  Monday.  ALSO TO THE  VICTORIA  BUNKERS  Amid TootlaglWhlsUes, Flylof Buollnj And a  " Concourse of Cltiieaa, Tbe iLutj Spike  Was Driven.  The new Mint hotel will be opened  to the public tonight.  At 11.45 Monday noon the last rail  was laid and the final spike driven on  the spur to the Old Ironsides and Victoria bunkers, just above town. The  occasion was duly celebrated by a  gathering of the local officials of the  Miner-Graves syndicate,.together with  a large number of citizens.. On the  ore bunkers, 65 feet above the track,  flew a Union Jack, and as the last  piece of steel was put down the whistles  of the surrounding mines broke out  into a deafening paean of joy���in'fact,  awakening the night shift men round  about, who were then in the arms of  Morpheus.  The tracklaying train was driven by  engine No. 312, with Fred Clatterbuck  at the throttle and W. J. Elliott as fireman. Pat Gorman was conductor,  with Messrs. Clark and Thomas as  brakemen. H. A. Durkee, who ' has  been in general charge of. the tracklaying on this entire Boundary line and  spurs, was on hand to see that everything was as it should be.  As soon as the track was laid work  was discontinued for a time, while the  men enjoyed the refreshments that  had been generously provided by the  hotel men of Phoenix arid the Phoenix  Brewery. It is needless to say that  full justice was done.  Track Dowa lo Brooklya.  Tuesday the work of putting down  the rails to the Brooklyn was started,  after a number of switches and side  tracks had been laid near the depot.  The track reached the mine on Thursday and was laid to the point where  the trestle is to be put in over the  wagon road to the Breakenridge * part  of town.- .-:  ���     *-���  It had been exacted that the track  men would be paid off; at Hartford  Junction, but Tuesday night, after  work, R. H. McCoy, the division  superintendent, ordered the boarding  cars hauled up. to the siding at Phoenix, and the 125 men were given their  checks on the Bank of Montreal.  This month the payroll was over  $4,000.  Work on the Phoenix depot started  early in the week. The structure has  been framed, and is now fast approaching completion, l'hoenix will enjoy  the distinction of being the only town  on the new Boundary railway in which  the station will be ready for general  use by the time that passenger trains  are running.

To tbe Electors, Rouland RldlaK, West Ktoo-  *��������'���  Electors: I am a candidate for the provincial  legislature ot the approaching election*, and i  favor the following policy:  >. An administration composed of those whose  practical experience will: enable them to deal  promptly aud efficiently with all detail*! connected with thedepartmcnUovcr which they preside.  ;,3. Sanctioning no large expenditure* other  than realty necessary, until the ability of the  province to bear such Is clearly ascertained.  This should not apply to bridges, trails and roads  in newly discovered mining camps.  3. Preparation of full, authentic and substantial financial statements ofthe province, together  with laud and lorest areas and their probable  values.  4. Convinced ofthe wisdom of assisting railroad construction ns proved by the experience of  other provinces, I would favor a system of bonuses, surrounded by reasonable checks and safeguards. Without feeders to the main lines, the  settlement in the Interior must naturally lie retarded, the const cities being deprived of many  supply advantages accmiiig from colonisation,  Immigration nnd internal improvement*). At  the present' juncture no thinking man would  commit himself to a snap decision in connection  with the subject of government ownership of  railways. It Is plausible, but I would lie unwilling to bind.the province to such a gigantic proposition involving many complex issues, until  convinced that the resources of British Columbia  justify such an experiment. '  5. The erection and maintenance of a technical school of milieu.  6. Amendment* to the mining taw, perfecting  the existing system of mine inspection, thus  making it effective, and of greater public advantage. Ka'rthcrniort, legislation bearing upon  placer claims, claim jumping and assessment  work, relieving as much as possible the prospector from protracted litigation aud consequent  legal complications.  '7. I'repar&tiou of carefully compiled maps,  showing trail, water and railway routes traversing mining districts, together with such official  information as would assist those engaged in  exploratory work.       '���������!:���'  8. Formulating a policy which would assure to  British Columbia a foremost place iu Great Britain, thus securing the province prominence commensurate with its resources.  9. Destroying as far as possible all germs of  discontent and consequent bitterness, by denting  with public works irrespective of locality or  political affiliation.  :o. Development of farming, dairying, stock  raising and fruit growing resources by increased  encouragement to agricultural societies, when by  such assistance it may be demonstrated that  reasonable benefits will accrue to the province.  11. increasing, the usefulness of a bureau of  labor and mining statistics by the appointment  of a competent official, whose sen-Ices could be  utilized in harmonizing conflicting interests and  arbitrating upon issues threatening to disturb  the peace and progress of any community,  12. Ministers of the Crown and their officials  being stewards acting for the public,! would insist upon due expedition iu the issue of crown  patents, and prompt departmental, settlement of  disputed claims, the taxes paid by unincorporated  settlements to be devoted, as far as possible, towards assisting the taxpaying district. .,-  13. Careful consideration ofthe rearrangement  of various constituencies, removing if possible  tbe question from the political arena, by such  legislation as under the circumstances, may bc  deemeil advisable; due care being taken to secure  to outlying districts, as well as rapidly, increasing towns, just  representation.  14. To deal with various labor questions on  rational lines, favoring no hasty legislation, but  consulting all interests likely to be affected.  The result of recent mediation, particulraly iu  Rossland, is an object lesson, conclusively proving  that all parties are willing to settle vexed questions upon a broad aud therefore practical basis.  15. In the present campaign I see no necessity  for alliance with, nor hostility toward, federal  authority, nor am I willing to commit myself or  those who support me to an unreserved pledge iu  favor of measures propounded by the present  leader of the government or others who have  aunouueed themselves as leaders. Some of the  measures advocated must commend themselves  to the electors; but I perer reserving to myself the  right to judge the men behind the measures, for  these will be called upon to crystatlize them into  legislation and give departmental effect to whnl  they profess to believe iu.  16. Instilling into the minds of the rising  generation instincts of fealty to the province and  loyalty to the British empire, and to commemorate the deeds of those who have surrendered their  lives in defense of that empire, as well as those  who are now fighting its battles. With this intent, I would advocate such legislation as would  make statutory provisions for the floating of the  British flag, during the hours of tuition, over all  schools throughout the province.  1 remain your obedient sen-ant,  C.H.

The 24th of May was a quiet day  in Phoenix, owing to the fact that  most of our people were taking in the  celebration at Midway. Many parties  were made up for this purpose and  went down to the mouth of Boundary  Creek. From many places of business  ami private residences the national  colors were displayed. Many are ol  the opinion that Phoenix should get  up something of this kind for the near  future. The railway will soon be in  operation to this point, and large  numbers would take advantage of it to  see the place where the mines are.  Last Sunday at the ("olden Grown  mine two box cars were loaded with  ore, and have since, been shipped to  the C. 1'. R. smeller at Trail,'' which  concern is desirous of securing all the  Boundary ore that can be obtained.  Mrs. Porter, wife of General Manager  \V. J. Porter, of the ("olden Crown,  had the honor of placing the first ore  in the cars:  R. H; McCoy, division construction su|>erintendent of the railway west  of Grand Forks, state* that by next  week, he expects to have the regular  ore cars, that can lie' so easily loaded  and unloaded. This will greatly  facilitate the work of handling the ore,  both at the mine and smelter. He also  states that another side track .will be  laid at the Golden Crown, which will  be a great convenience.        ";"  This is the first ore ever sent to the  smelter from the Golden Crown, with  the exception,of five tons shipped a  month ago to Denver, for testing by  the loder pyritic process. From now  on shipments will be made from this  property as fast as the 'cars can be  had.  :��� -V--  Placlaj Cage la OM IraasJdei Shaft.  Foundation less rumors were current  this week that the Old Ironsides would -  shut down indefinitely, to permit the  putting in ofthe cages. One; cage is  now being put in, and the men on the  300-foot level only are forced tolay off  lor a short time. Otherwise the mine  is running as usual in full blast, as well  as the Knob Hill. Only one cage is here  yet, which is being put in shall No. 2.  Shalt No. 1, and the winze in the Knob  Hill will also be fitted with cages.  . .  la Boaadary Miaea.  ,,   Manager S.,F. Parrish, of the B. C.  mihe,"'s*away'oil a trip to Butte. ;  Some 15 teams are now busy hauling City of Paris ore to the Granby  smelter.  Work on the Jewel, in;ix>ng Lake  camp, is to be started-up again, about  July 1st.     1      .''*'���'       .���'.���.���   -  Ore is being hauled from the Athelstan to Hartford Junction for a carload  shipment to.the 'Trail smelter.  The War Eagle is now running eight-  hour shifts, and making good progress  in drifting from the 100-ioot level, east  and west.  Recently in excavating for a powder  house on the Victoria a fine ledge of  copper ore was opened up almost 011  the surface.  The Enterprise, in Long Lake camp,  is to resume ojierations soon. The ore  is rich and the property is developed to  the 100-foot level.  The Gold Drop will doubtless make  its usual average of about 200 feet of  development during May. Two drills  are working steadily.  On the Evening Star and Sibley in  Wellington camp, where the Eraser  boys have been working, a fine lead of  copper ore has been uncovered.  R. B. Thomas has made a complete  topographical survey of Central cam*>  for the Majestic mining company, one  of-the. Miner-Graves syndicate companies.  The new tunnel under the railway  spur, on the Snowshoe. is now in over  200 feet, and some of the best ore yet  seen on the property is being encountered.  W. T. Smith informs the Pioneer  that operations on the Brooklyn wilt  be resumed some time in June. It is  probable that shipping will be one of  the first items on the program.  H. N. Galer, treasurer of the Granby  company, Grand Forks, visited the  Hartford mine Sunday with some  friends, and 'dropped over to Phoenix.  He is much pleased with the excellent  quality of ore being taken from the  property.  Alfred J. McMillan, manager of the  Rossland and Slocan (B.C.) syndicate-  owning, the Snowshoe mine, who has.  been spending the winter in London,  has returned to British Columbia.  One of the largest stockholders in the-  Snowshoe, Mr. G. E. Waterlow, a  wealthy London printer and publisher,  will visit l'hoenix this summer.  At a meeting of the directors of the  Winnipeg Mining and Smelting Co.,  held in Greenwood last w eek, Prey"  dent Duncan Mcintosh, Secretary  Honey and Director 15. J.

WHY IT WAS BUILT.
It may not be generally known, but
it is nevertheless a fact,  that one of
greatest incentives to.the C P. R. in
the   construction   of    the   Boundary
branch, was the ore tonnage to be obtained   from   mines   located in and
around Phoenix camp.    Other camps
undoubtedly have splendid mines, that
will in  time prove profitable, to  the
owners, and   profitable to the railway
also on account of their large and
steady   shipments.   But not" one of
them can show as many mines actually developed to the shipping stage
as are now found right here in Phoe-
1     nix. * Some who have not studied the
situation  may have  been a bit skeptical about it, but the fact remains just
• »the same.   Stick 'ir pin h'ere.   Phoenix
has- more mines—mines,.* not prospects
-7-ready to ship ore than any other
camp in the Boundary.
The C.P.R. is,'not famous for building railways  for the fun there is in it.
As a rule, the company secures a goodly bonus and in addition  bonds tlie
new line for its cost or more.   Then,
of vcourse,  the people pay the freight,
literally    and   metaphorically..   Even
thiugh  the rates are high to a degree,
'' the railway is'welcomed, and a second
will probably lie' more so'when it materializes. '    ' •" *! . ' - '
The C.K P. R. management was well
aware, from private sources,' of the.itn-
inense ore* bodies in the'hills around
Phoenix.    The railway was not "going
it blind," when it began the work  61
construction on' this'line at* West Rob-
son.    It will beyond question reap a
rich harvest,from,the investment as
..   V   „ V.    r I     ' L
tinje.gpes.on. This means that our
claim owners will also reap a rich' harvest in  the. same or , greater degree.
• And the camp that "has -'the greatest
number of shipping mines will secure
the greatest benefit.. -That-camp is
Phoenix, the heart of the Boundary.'

Owners of freo miners' certificates
should bear in mind that, • under the
amendment to the Mineral act, which
was passed last year, all these certificates evpire on the 31st of May of each
year, and that failure to renew will result in the lapse of the certificates. As
there are a large number of free miners
in the province, and as hitherto these
certificates have expired twelve months
from the date of the issue, the matter
is one which is of the greatest importance.

,       IT HAS NO PARALLEL
,   This week all loyal British subjects,
the world over, have been  celebrating
* -Queen's-Victoria's Birthday, in a more
or less' demonstrative manner. Here
^.1 southern British Columbia our
American cousins also have been gladly, taking part in the celebration.
The reign of the present Queen
is without parallel in the history oi
Britain. QueenVictoriawasadaughter
of ttaDuke ol Kent, who, by the way,
was at one time a resident of our own
Canada/^ Born on"the j24th of May,
1819, the Queen ascended the throne
at the age of 18 years, in 1837, and
has therefore been a beloved ruler for
64 years—longer than any other British
sovereign , , After * becoming Queen,
"Victoria manied Albert Edward, a
prince in a noble house in Prussia.
The union was a happy and a. prolific
one.
Ouring the reign of Queen Victoria
the British empire and- in fact the
entire civilized world has made wonder-
. 'ul progress in ever) line. .The empire
itself has expanded till, as the sa>ing
goes, the British drumbeat can now
be heard aiound the globe. The
British flag, whercer seen, is the
synonym of progress and protection,
and has come to be known as such in
the farthest corners of the earth.
'' The good Queen is now getting to
he pretty well along in life, being now in
her Sad }car, and it is safe to say that
she is loved by more people than anj
rther ruler, of whatsoever degree.
The peoples of nearly all countries
have great respect tor her majesty, and
. this has grown steadily as she has
grown older. When her reign is closed
it will probably go down the halls of
time as the most beneficent, in all respects, yet recorded in history, ancient
or modern.

They use print-shop towels for building purposes now, and they stand any
and all tests, says an exchange. One
has been in use as a tombstone in
Texas lor 36 years, and is in just as
good condition now, as the day it was
hauled away trom the office and placed
at the grave. They represent mourning, lor generally they are of blackest
hue, but in one or two instances they
have—on microscopic examination-
been iound to contain streaks ol white.
But this is very rare. A man in Oregon dug one up, some )ears ago, and
reported he had found a black marble
quarry, but the editor of a newspaper
recognued it as a towel in use 40 years
ago in the of<ce where he was devil.
Thus a good romance for the yellow
journals was knocked in the head. .

No. i  tunnel, about 175 feet further west, is  84 feet long. Twenty feet from the  mouth ore was struck, and it continued solid for 18 feet. ��� This working is  thirty-nine feet below the ore body,  uncovered by the railway. The work  of cross-cutting and blocking these immense ore bodies is a simple matter.  Ore was also encountered in considerable quantities in the shaft.  The present plant, which will be  enlarged shortly, consists of a 35 horsepower boiler, 15 horse-power hoist, and  a two-drill compressor. Throughout  the various ore bodies have a perceptible dip to the southwest. Recently,  while stripping the surface at a .height  of 360 feet from No. 2 tunnel, the  miners struck a ledge or, deposit of  magnetic iron, largely impregnated with  copper pyrites. The ore on the dump  is upwards of four hundred tons. An  experimental;.shipment from.three different workings averaged $18 per ton  and netted $11 per ton after payment  freight and treatment charges. The  principal values are in copper, the gold  and silver being quite subsidiary.  A Case Lot of  ALARM CLOCKS  BREMNER&CO.  Millkk Blk., Phoenix, B.

Nearly a Tho* und Feet of Work Has Been  ���;��� * t,'. -.-,.��� ... iDone. So Far. ;  ' The'Oro Denoro, iri Summit oarrip,  was recently visited by Correspondent  Harkin, who wrote about it as follows:  Leading shareholders are Hon. Smith  Curtis, minister of mines, and Mr.  Ross Thompson, the founder of Ross-  lanjL Development work has been  confined to a large hill, whose top is  surmounted by a shaft and powerhouse. Why a shaft was sunk at this  point seems to be a mystery, when  hettter results, at a reduced cost, could  have been accomplished by driving a  series of tunnels.  However, a radical change  of pro-,  gramme was adopted when   Mr.   Nei  Cochrane, the superintendent, assumed  his  duties in November  last.    At an  earlier period he had  been��'/consulted  in an advisory capacity.    His  recommendations   did   not  meet  with   approval.    He  urged the  abandonment  of the shaft work and declared the Oro  Denoro to be a tunnelling proposition,  pure and simple,    A few month's later  his theories "were confirmed   when the  railroad graders uncovered twenty feet  of ore in a curve half-way  up the hill.  Mr. Cochrane  on  taking  charge,  at  once proceeded to strip and locate the  ore bodies before undertaking his favorite plan of tunnelling.    Since then the  mine has been extensively  opened up.  No. 2 tunnel  penetrates  the  hill a  distance of  150 feet, sixty-six'feet of  which is,in;ore.,  From the end of the  tunnel adrift extends 245 feet, connecting with the bottom of the 175-footshaft.  This   connection,    apart   from   other  considerations, provides excellent ventilation.    No.  3  tunnel,  tapping the  outer edge of the hill 81 feet below the  preceding level, has been extended 316  feet.

CELEBRATION AT MIDWAY.  Large Delegations Attended From Greenwood  and Phoenix.  The only celebration of the Queen's  birthday in the entire Boundary this  year was held at Midway last Thursday and the attendance from all parts  of this section was large. In Gieen-  wood and especially in Phoenix nearly  every available team or horse was  pressed into service, and the road to  Midway that morning was one continuous cavalcade.  The Midway committee, in preparing for the event,, raised a fund of  nearly $700, most of which was spent  on the prizes. The Greenwood City  band furnished music for the occasion.  The races and events resulted as follows: ,  Horse Races:���Free for all, half  mile and repeat, Easter Lily and  Skip  per.

Martin and Curtis.  Ralpli Smith snid: "I consider if Mr. Joseph  Martin had been prepared to carry ont the broad  principles he satd he wns, lie never should have  allied himself with the Turner party todefeat the  redistribution bill. The next point is the relief  that was sought to be Riven to the cor.1'miners of  Vnncouver Island. What did Mr. Martin do ? He  combined with the corporation of the Dunsnmirs  to defeat a measure to relieve the condition of  things for the coal miners."  Electors: Mr. Martin not only voted  against theSemlin government in order  to gain power, but by so doing, prevented a redistribution of seats, thereby  depriving this great district of one  member���the proposed bill giving Rossland and Trail one member and the  Boundary country another���two large  mining centres whose interests would  have been doubly protected.  How is the question of Asiatic labor  to be effectively dealt with? We must  deal not only with Chinese and Japanese who are still in China nnd Japan,  but also with the Chinese and Japanese  who are now in British Columbia com-  j peting against white industry.  Kirst���By introducing the Coal  Mines regulation bill which will empty  the coal mines of Oriental labor.  Second���By enacting a measure to  make it compulsory upon all contractors  for government work and work subsidized by the government to adopt the  standard wage for labor.

About the second week in June a  farce, in connection with a concert,  will be given in Phoenix that bids fair  to be more than usually interesting and  exceedingly comical. It is called the  "Old Maids' Convention," and is being  prepared by the ladies of the Presbyterian church of Phoenix.  It requires 20 ladies to take the  parts of the old maids, who, be it understood, arc looking-for husbands.  The parts have been assigned, and rehearsals are now going on. The situations are said to be humorous, especially when some of the" old maids are  transformed by a professor who happens opportunely on the scene.  Preceding the farce a choice concert  with recitations will be given. Miss  Cora Aldrich, of Rossland, a friend ol  Mrs. J. E. Mills, will be visiting in  Phoenix at the time, and has kindly  consented to act as accompanist. The  entertainment will be given for the  benefit of the Presbyterian church  building fund, and will take place in  Miners' Union hall. The exact date  has not been decided on, but it will  probably be June 13th or 14th. All  of the ladies interested are working  hard for the success of the affair, and  their efforts will doubtless be favorably  received by a public that knows a good  thing when it is seen.  ��� :Notice.;;;U������;;���. >-{:'}/;  ' Notick is hereby given that I will not be re-  spoA-iible for bills contracted by my wife, Mrs.  C.
